Cleared for takeoff


In a split vote, the
Sarasota County School
Board decided Tuesday
to retain Dr. Gary
Norris. Now the ball is
in Norris' court.
BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County school
board chairman Frank
Kovach wasn't the deciding
vote Tuesday to keep Dr. Gary
Norris as superintendent, but
he might well be in the long
run.
In another split vote, the
board voted 3-2 to renegotiate
a new contract with its cur-
rent superintendent.
Veteran board member
Kathy Kleinlein and newly
appointed
m e m b e r s
members
Shirley Brown
and Caroline
Zucker voted
in favor, with
Carol Todd
and Kovach
voting against
at a special Norris
meeting held
Tuesday.
It was Kovach's vote last
month that opened the door
for Norris to stay, when he
swa'ed the board's decision io
back off a superintendent
search it was planning, and to
specifically reconsider Norris in
the mix
As chairman of the board
for the next year, his vote yes-
terday may have significant
influence in Norris' decision.
whether to accept the invita-
tion to enter into another
contract.
Whether Norris will agree
to come back based on a split
vote, one of many that have
plagued the board over the
past three years, is unknown.
It was one of the road-

blocks Norris referred to
when he announced his resig-
nation earlier this year. An
inability to reach consensus
and the sending of mixed sig-
nals were high on his list of
board leadership issues he
thinks need to be addressed.
Kovach said he and Norris
agreed at the outset Tuesday to
give him time to think it over,
- pending a favorable outcome.
Norris' decision could core as
early as tomorrow.
Florida School Boards
Association executive director
Wayne Blanton told the board at
a superintendent search work-
shop last month it should seri-
ously consider a unanimous
vote to support its next superin-
tendent, whoever it maybe, due
to the message it sends. Most
candidates won't touch a split
vote job offer, he said.
Norris, however, has al-
ready walked the hot coals of
Sarasota County's sometimes
heated board wars. He won
the job three years ago on a
split vote.
Skewed
Members spent Tuesday
morning discussing the road-
blocks that led to Norris' res-
ignation, and what it would
take to overcome them. One
by one board members took
turns expressing both compli-
ments and frustrations..
More than once Todd
expressed her dissatisfaction
with how the workshop was
being conducted.
"The process is skewed to
'what can we do to support the
superintendent?' she said.
"Why are we talking about a
contract instead of a resigna-
tion?"
"Regardless of who the next
superintendent is, it's good to
record the responses," said
facilitator and former Landings
administrator Carlene Judge.
Norris took time to set the
record straight on student
achievement in Sarasota
County.
"When I came I was told
we were tops in everything,"
said Norris, alluding to argu-
ments by some that his initia-
tives have been trying to fix a
system that's not broken.

Plans for restaurant site revised


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


R&D .Companies, the
Naples home developer that
hopes to create a luxury con-
dominium complex on the
Intracoastal Waterway at
Blackburn Point Road in
Osprey, is refining its site plan
for submission to the
Sarasota County Commis-
sion.
R&D paid $15.4 million last
summer to acquire the site of
the closed Flying Bridge
restaurant from Valencia
Development Co. LLC., which
had won the right to develop
the 4.3-acre parcel after bat-
tling the county in court for
almost two years.
Valencia's original propos-
al called for 14 luxury town-
houses in three, three-story
buildings. Forty-six deep-
water boat slips, 19 of which
would be assigned to resi-
dents, were also proposed for
sale to the public. About 3


percent of the site was to
include a boat repair service,
bait shop, fueling station and
.aboat supplier.
The county commission
rejected Valencia's proposed
commercial area as too small.
R&D's plan offers a similar
mix of condominiums, boat
slips and offices.
There will be 18 resi-
dences, 2,000 to 4,500 square
feet in area, and 50 boat slips.
Fifteen of those would be for
transient use and for the pub-
lic. Units would be priced
from $2 million to $4 million,
according to R&D.
Robert Rogers, a joint ven-
turerworking on the project
with R&D, said that a marine
store, yacht service and gen-
eral offices will be included in
the commercial space. The
organization, is considering
whether to add a restaurant.
All would be open to the pub-
lic.
"We've already had interest
from Casey Key residents


about renting office space,"
Rogers said.
More than 27,000 square
feet will be set aside for
offices, he added.
Public access
The county commission
approved changes to the
marine zoning' district in
September to preserve public
access toarea waterways. By
allowing more flexible devel-
opment of mixed-use pro-
jects at marinas, including
residences, the commission
hopes to provide an incentive
to developers to retain mari-
nas, rather than replace them
with condominiums.
New regulations also
require free public boat slips
and public access to 30 per-
cent of a property, including
waterfront areas. For that,
developers will be allowed
increased density, which will
create a larger portion devot-
ed to residences.
At $15.45 million, R&D's


purchase of the property was
one of the largest recorded in
recent Southwest Florida his-
tory. It followed a lengthy and
contentious legal battle
between Valencia and the
county.
The county rejected
Valencia's proposal to rede-
velop the restaurant property
overlooking Little Sarasota
Bay in April 2005, on a 2-2 tie
vote. Several months later, the
county Zoning Board of
Appeals overturned the com-
mission by a unanimous vote
of its own. That put the coun-
ty into the 12th Judicial
Circuit Court in opposition to
a county advisory panel it had
appointed.
The court sided with the
appeals board, which ad-
vanced development of the
property and the R&D pur-
chase.
County property records
reveal that Valencia pur-
chased the site in August 2002
for $4.14 million.

Venice moviegoers have
been invited to complete a sur-
vey on the entertainment
needs of teenagers in the area.
The results will lead to
major decisions byWaterford
Companies on the project it is
designing to occupy the final
available space in the Galleria
Plaza, which has become an
entertainment hub.
Waterford Companies ac-
quired the run-down plaza
with many empty units four
years ago. In the past year and a
half it has become a vibrant
center, with the opening of
Frank Theaters Venice Movie
Theater, a pub, a restaurant, a
discount store, a bank and
Realtors. Soon it will have a


large golf store, followed by
Body Wraps, a sports bar, a
gelato and ice cream shop, a
beauty parlor and other attrac-
tions.
Company president Mike
Miller, father of two younger
children, is aware of the need
to provide some form of
entertainment for the grow-
ing number of teenagers in
the community. With a team
of colleagues he has spent the
past three months focusing
on the after-school needs of
13- to 18-year-olds.
Because many families go to
the movie theater, it was decid-
ed to invite patrons of all ages to
provide their thoughts on the
kind of venue that would be
appealing to younger mem-

Signs of thaw in River Road stalemate


BY HOWARD JAMES
STAFF WRITER


North Port and Sarasota
County officials will continue
joint planning agreement
negotiations Wednesday.
The bad news is, their
occasionally heated talks
have taken months to reach
even a preliminary consen-
sus.
The good news is that
Friday's day-long session pro-
duced substantial progress
between the city and county.
The nRo continued to dis-
cuss a-proposed joint plan-


ning agreement that will set
out a roadmap for growth for
the next several decades.
One of the most compli-
cated issues that divided the
county and city came close to
resolution Friday.
Both sides fear that devel-
opment of 20,000 proposed
homes at Thomas Ranch1
which lies between River
Road and U.S. 41, would cre-
ate highway gridlock.
County planners suggest-
ed it would take all available
revenue for several years to
\widen the 11 miles of South
River Road.

North' Port Planning
Director Sam Jones asked
how much money the county
has banked from its share of
impact fees collected from
new home owners in the city.
The county's answer: more
than of $8 million.
Jones said that even in this
sluggish housing market, the
county's share of impact fees in
the next four years should total
several million dollars more.,
Although that is only a small
portion of the money required,
Jones suggested the county
dedicate all impact fees it
receives 'lidnl North Pnrt.to


widening River Road to four
lanes in small increments.
Help needed
Both sides agreed that
unless Thomas Ranch offers
assistance, such as deeding
land along River Road for
widening, it might not be
possible for.the West Villages
developer to continue build-
ing until the problem is
addressed.

Trainee' position makes VPD more competitive


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER
The Venice Police Depart-
ment has created a new
incentive program in an
attempt to attract and retain a
greater number of qualified
applicants for the position of
police officer.
Trainees will get the oppor-
tunity to get paid while going
through the six-month train-
ing academy, and then the
state's certification testing
process.
For many years, the city
has required police officer
applicants to have Florida law
enforcement certification be-
fore applying, because there
was an abundance of candi-
dates available who had
obtained it. Law enforcement
officers were coming to
Florida from other states just
to escape cold weather and
"big city" crime problems,
and were willing to pay their
own way to become Florida
certified.
But times have changed.
Greater competition has
developed between law en-
forcement agencies in Flor-
ida, not only causing salaries
and benefits to increase, but
also generating other entice-
ments to get the attention of
those interested in such a
career.

QUALIFICATIONS
A summary of the qualifi-
cations to become a VPD
police officer or "trainee":
At least 19 years old.
U.S. citizen
High school diploma, or
GED equivalent; prefer 30 or
more credit hours of college.
Florida driver license.
Drug test, polygraph and
psychiatric evaluation.
A thorough background
check.
.-q a,IU.S, militaryvet. rap, .
must have a minimum of a
general discharge.
Able to operate a city
vehicle safely.
Able to pass all entrance
requirements of the selected
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement training acade-
my.
Successful completion of
the state-approved Physical
Abilities Test.
A physical exam, includ-
ing a visual acuity exam


II~


Venice Police Chief Julie
Williams said the "Employ-
ment Program" will be a big
factor in winning that compe-
tition:
"All depart-
ments are
basically
fighting for :.
the same .'
good people,"
said Williams.
"Most others
in Florida are
already offer-
ing this in- Williams
centive, so we
have been losing some appli-
cants to them along the way. I
believe that will change now
that this program has been
approved by the city council."
'Trainee' status


But don't look for any
recruiting ads for the position
of "Police Officer Trainee."
The department has a contin-
uous recruitment program
for police officer applicants,
which will now simply allow
the consideration of other-
wise qualified candidates
who are not yet certified.
In order to be placed on
the hiring eligibility list, all
police officer applicants are
put through the department's
normal background screen-
ing process of checking refer-
ences, criminal records, edu-
cation and previous employ-
ment. When openings occur,
if any of those who rise to the
top of the list are not Florida
certified, they will be consid-
ered for the "trainee" pro-'
gram.
That means they will be
put on the police department
payroll, but enrolled in the
six-month Sarasota Criminal
Justice Academy (referred to
as the "police academy") at
the Sarasota County Tech-
nical Institute.
"During that time," said
1.,)Millia nsgi" IrVfintime jqe sg

The city will pay the cost of

plus the cost of that first exam
($100), in addition to the
trainee's wages and benefits

then at his or her own
expense.
"The job description also
allows us to assign police-
related, nonlaw enforcement
duties when the trainee is not
in class," said Williams. "That
could be anything from filing
records to dispatching to 'job
.shadowing' with police offi-
cers, detectives, crime scene
personnel, etc. as part of their


on-the-job-training."
Two-year commitment
In exchange for the city's
investment, the successful
trainee will sign an agree-
ment to "reimburse" the city
by serving as a VPD police
officer for at least two years.
A trainee who drops out of
the academy, is dismissed or
fails to pass the state exam
"within,a reasonable period


of time after graduation" is
required to pay the city back
within a two-year period.
A successful trainee who
serves for less than the pre-
scribed two years would pay a
pro-rated amount to reim-
burse the city.
With several recent pro-
motions, as well as some
anticipated retirements of
senior officers over the next
several months, the Venice


department expects to have
periodic job openings to fill.

EDC commissioner courts cinema cash


BY RICK BARRY
PELICAN PRESS

Sarasota's Economic
Development Corp. plans to
have a professional film com-
missioner in place and run-
ning the county's first full-
time Film and Entertainment
Office from its Cattlemen
Road headquarters by the
end of January.
Already more than 40
resumes have been received,
and more were expected by
the close of business
Wednesday, said the EDC
President Kathy Baylis. The
job will pay between $45,000
and $65,000, depending on
film and video industry expe-
rience, contacts and knowl-
edge of the workings of local
and state bureaucracies,
according to an EDC survey.
The commissioner will
have a part-time assistant
provided from the EDC staff,
Baylis said.
The job will involve attract-
ing film and other entertain-
ment companies to use the
area as a location for com-
mercials, video production


and, ideally, some feature
films.
The commissioner's of-
fice will also be charged with
fostering the local film and
video industries, as well as
cataloguing locations, coor-
dinating and streamlining
permits through local gov-
ernments and linking area
businesses, crews and talent
to the productions, said
local film and video produc-
er Tony Swain, who chairs a
film office task force for the
Tourist Development Coun-
cil, on which he sits.
Many members of the
task force, which includes
representatives from area
college art, theater and film
schools; film festivals; tele-
vision stations; independent
producers; and others -will
form the nucleus of an advi-
sory board that will help
direct the film office for the
EDC, Baylis said.
County commissioners
gave final approval to the film
office concept they signed off
on Oct. 25, and allocated
$60,000 in startup money to
the office, plus recurring


funding of $140,000 annually,
$70,000 each from the
Sarasota Convention and
Visitors Bureau and the EDC.
The EDC will also seek pri-
vate funds to supplement its
governmental allocations.
'Much more'
By expanding this area's
creative services employment
sector, Baylis said the film
office would make a signifi-
cant contribution to the cor-
poration's overall strategy,
especially its goals of "adding
high-wage jobs and helping
diversify the local economy."
The film office for more
than a decade was a part-
time job for ope employee,
Pam Kline, of the CVB, said its
executive director, Virginia
Haley.
"We really had no budget
for the office," Haley said,
"and we knew it could be
much more."
So the task force was
formed to study the best
practices of other film offices
in this state and in others. A
consultant was hired and rec-
ommendations forwarded to


the county.
The task force set a goal of
attracting new business
adding $1.5 million to the
local economy next year, ris-
ing to $3 million annually by'
the third year.
In addition to a primary
goal of attracting projects that
bring guests to area hotels,
motels and restaurants and
increase employment in
entertainment-related busi-
nesses locally, the office
hopes to indirectly promote
the area through industry
contacts, including local col-
leges and universities, espe-
cially the Ringling School of
Art and Design, Manatee
Community College's film
program and the Asolo-FSU
graduate school of actor
training, according to the task
force's report.
Swain said the beauty of
income from film and video
production is that the outlays
can be sizable, "but we don't
have to build schools and
roads ... The production
companies come to town,
spend a lot of money while
they're here and then leave."


VTL looking to grow


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


If you get something in the
mail from Herb Levine after
the first of the year, it won't be
a valentine.
Levine, president of the
Venice Taxpayers League, got
his board's approval Monday
at the group's monthly meet-
ing to send out special edi-
tions of the VTL newsletter in
2007 in an effort to recruit
new members.
The goal: to. be able to
mobilize enough like-minded
voters to elect someone to
city council next year whose
thinking is in line with the
group's slow- to no-growth
philosophy.
Mayor Fred Hammett and
council member Bill Willsdn
will be up for re-election in
2007.
Levine said the VTL's cur-
rent membership is about
300, roughly double that if
spouses are included.
Doubling the membership -
and the number of spouses -
would double the number of
votes the group could influ-
ence.
In the recent general elec-
tion incumbent council


member John Simmonds
beat political newcomer
Ernie Zavodnyik by 416 votes:
4,674-4,258. The VTL had
endorsed Zavodnyik.
"By God," said Levine, "this
is the closest we've ever
come."
Other tactics
The rest of the VTLs game
plan for the next election will
be decided in January, but
Levine threw out other ideas
at Monday's meeting. Among
them:
Keep its political action
committee active year-round.
Prospect earlier for coun-
cil candidates.
Start aWeb site.
Identify issues that ap-
peal to a broader range of vot-
ers, such as growth, traffic
and red tide.
Get sponsors for political
forums.
Appeal to small business-
es that could be hurt by the
types of businesses that
accompany growth.
Come up with a catchy
slogan. One possibility,
Levine said: "Who do you
trust the people who love
Venice, or the people who just
want to make money off it?"

NORRIS frm page 1A
"The truth is we're not as
good as we think we are ...
(today) we're at a higher stand-
ing than when I came on
board."
Despite gaps in communi-
cating, Kleinlein confirmed
Norris' part in increasing stu-
dent achievement in the dis-
trict.
FCATs are up in many
areas, she said.
"Dropouts have fallen while
graduation rates have in-
creased. He addressed career
technology. The achievement
gap between high performers
and low performers is closing.
Our schools are safer and our
teachers are paid better (under
his leadership)," Kleinlein said.
She acknowledged the dis-
trict is forcing teachers out of
their comfort zones, adding,
"We need to ask teachers how
we can do things better."
Morale
Low teacher morale, and
how to boost it, was a hot topic.
The issue was stoked by a
weeks-long e-mail campaign by
school staff to influence the
board's decision.
It was this argument that
appeared to tilt the decision for
Kovach.
He reiterated his "deep
concern" about moving for-
ward with an unsustainable
budget that requires dipping
into reserve funds, and a lack
of program accountability
He complimented Norris
for securing record-breaking
pay raises for staff.
Norris acknowledged you

don't buy morale. He did it, he
said, to bring the best quali-
fied educators into the dis-
trict.
Research shows teaching
isn't as fun as it used to be.
Morale is down across the
nation, he added.
"I still have to look at morale.
There is a lot of disregard for his
leadership," Kovach said. "If he
returns, how do we right this
ship? I see this as a tremendous
disconnect I don't know how
many board members under-
stand how deep this runs."
Accountability
Norris came armed with a
host of remedies.
To improve communica-
tions he plans to reorganize
the communications depart-
ment, bringing in two more
positions.
He also recommended a
monthly series of community
forums, teacher workshops to
solicit input and board work-
shops when frustrations first
arise.
He proposed the board
commit to the Florida School
Boards Association Master
Board Development Program
and conduct self evaluations.
"High-performing leader-
ship teams spend nearly as
much time learning how to
govern, and how to work
together, as they do govern-
ing," Norris said.
He also made recommen-

dations in the area of school
governance structures, union
contracts and budgeting
options.
Norris presented a two-
tiered approach to reduce this
and next year's budget, begin-
ning with reduced staff
assumptions.
"We clearly will not need
112 additional teachers with
enrollment rising only 400
students. We will need only 20
to 25," He said.
Norris envisions savings
through a hiring slowdown or
freeze for the remainder of
the 2006-07 school year, cur-
tailing purchases and rerout-
ing the transportation sys-
tem, as well as considering
future benefit plan changes.
Togetheress
Zucker said she campaigned
on the district's communication
Issues and was hopeful things
would improve.
"Everyone has warts. Some
are better at hiding their warts
than others," Zucker said.
She also said she'd been


threatened by letters that
said, "If I don't vote the super-
intendent out, I will be voted
out."
As a former school board
member in Sarasota County
who had been previously voted
out, it didn't have the desired
effect on her. She voted in favor
of rehiring Norris.
Former legislator Shirley
Brown, among others, wasn't
about to hang all the district's
woes around the neck of Norris.
"It's not just Gary Norris
who should be accountable.
We as a leadership team have
a lot of work to do.We should-
n't shy away from evaluating
ourselves. We all share in this.
"If teachers are not getting
what they want then they need
to look at their leadership (the
Sarasota Classified/Teachers
Association). I support the
(NGL) plan and the author."
"We need to work this out
We will continue to have this
problem (split decisions) unless
we take boardsmanship train-
ing. You work together on how
to get through that"

bers of the community.
Asked the types of uses
wanted in a teen center, the
majority favored dancing
with a disc jockey for Friday
and Saturday nights, closely
followed by laser tag and a
video arcade.

Safe place
Miller's research on the
Internet showed generally
that voluntary funded pro-
jects usually fail, as their
income dips over time.
Supervision by teenagers has
also been found not to work
as it puts too much responsi-
bility upon those too young.
'We want to get kids off the
street by giving them a place
to go, where parents feel com-
fortable knowing it is a safe
place," said Miller.
The 7,000-square-foot
center --as yet unnamed, but
possibly to be called Hang
Time will likely have an all
purpose 2,500-square-foot


room for meetings, dances
and karaoke. There will be a
game room with billiard
tables, air hockey, Xbox play,
laser tag and a video arcade.
Refreshments will be sold, but
no beer or alcohol.
Talks have been held with
the South County Family
YMCA seeking its advice on
management, and possible
participation with a YMCA
night.
Experience indicates a
teen center must pay for itself
to survive, according to
Miller. Final decisions will be
made shortly as research and
input from all parties is final-
ized.
"If we can give kids a place
to go and meet, we are
encouraging family life in our
community," said Miller.
Asked how it might be dis-
tinguished from an adult cen-
ter, he said, "Someone has
already suggested a sign:
Adults must be accompanied

by a kid!'"

SBefore
becoming pregnant, a
woman's body weight
centers over her pelvic area
and hips. Once she becomes
pregnant and the baby grows, the
center of gravity gradually shifts,
with more weight thrust in front of
the hips. This shift leads to changes in
the alignment of the spine. And, as the
) uterus enlarges and expands forward,
the center of gravity is displaced, which
could cause muscle cramps' and nerve
pain. These changes in posture put more
strain on the lower back and pelvic
areas. If a woman goes into pregnancy
with poor spinal alignment, it may
possibly worsen, setting the stage for
increased discomfort during labor and
difficulty during delivery. Regular
chiropractic examinations. during
pregnancy help ease discomfort
through delivery.

P.S. Lower back pain is one of the most
common complaints of pregnant women.

Tension between Key owners, association


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Casey Key, described in
real estate advertising as a
barrier island paradise,
sounds and feels like any-
thing but. Several property
owners and the Casey Key
Association have squared off
over a number of issues.
The association's board of
directors has been condemned
by Realtors active on the key
and individual home owners
for acting without adequately
informing the more than 400
owners. The dispute was
kicked off last May, when the
association's zoning commit-
tee approached the Sarasota
county board of commission-
ers. They sought ordinances to
reduce state-mandated height
limits on houses, tighten build-
ing codes and create a new
overlay district.
While some residents want
the county to stop the build-
ing of houses that tower. over
treetops and neighbors, oth-
ers object to the association
taking such steps before
determining the desires of all
property owners.

High stakes
The suggestion last May by
County Commissioner Shan-
non Staub to impose a year-
long moratorium on issuing
new building permits on the
key "to head off more over-
sized construction" caused
considerable concern among
Realtors. It prompted an
exchange of vigorous com-
ment between the associa-
tion and Realtor Tom Stone.
Stating his concern in a
newsletter he publishes,
Stone worried about the pos-
sibility of "a negative impact
on each and every Casey Key
property owner."
Stakes are high for Realtors
and owners. In 2005, 18 sales


of homes at $3 million or
more on the key represented
35 percent of the county total
at that level. Six transactions
at $5 million or more repre-
sented 46 percent of the
county total. The average sale
price of a Casey Key home in
2005 was $3.4 million,
according to county records.
An e-mail sent to the
Gondolier Sun earlier this
month by a property owner
protested that "there has
been no rank and file referen-
dum for property owners on
the key regarding a formal
position on the north bridge."
"I own three properties
here," it said. "I have never
been asked my position or
view on the bridge."

Ambience
When the bridge was
closed for repairs in Oct-
ober, association president
Hank Tafaro urged the coun-
ty to preserve the Blackburn
Point Road structure in
Osprey. The 81-year-old
swing bridge, one of very
few remaining in the state,
has been closed for repairs a
half-dozen time n the past
several years. "
"The one-lane bridge
needs to be preserved," he
said in a published statement.
"We: think it adds ambience
to the key."
Tafaro explained that the
association's rejection three
years ago of a county propos-
al to replace the bridge was
based on its desire to avoid
change.
More than 120 residents
turned out for the associa-
tion's annual meeting Nov. 15
at the Osprey Ramada Inn. It
had been moved up from
January 2007.
SDescribed as "an unusually
high attendance" by one resi-
dent, it was characterized as
"full of vocal opposition to the

board of directors" by anoth-
er.
Reduction of the number
of directors from 12 to seven
prompted several objections.
Among residents questioning
recent board decisions, Brent
Hamill said, "that means that
even fewer people are decid-
ing for all of Casey Key."
The proposed overlay dis-
trict, said one owner, is aimed
at denying the hotels and
motels at the southern end of
the key their right to convert
to condominiums.

Politics
Another objection was
raised to a board decision
establishing a $20,000 legal
fund to involve the associa-
tion in the zoning.dispute
between the county and the
Casey Key Fish House about
restoring the restaurant's tiki
hut bar.
Several residents have
withdrawn as association
members.
"We joined when the asso-
ciation was responsible for
security, the annual picnic
and social activities," said
one. "Now it's into politics."
A sixth owner complained
that association-generated
surveys were "vague and
poorly worded to assure a
specific conclusion." Prom-
ised neighborhood discus-
sion groups to gather owner
opinions "don't seem to be
happening. When are we


going to have some
input?"asked another.
Casey Key is almost exclu-
sively zoned for single-family
houses. A handful of motels
and duplexes predating regu-
lations were "grandfathered"
in county ordinances. A con-
servation district established
by the state prohibits any-
thing new other than homes
with guest cottages.
Two years ago,.the county
adopted rules for residential
construction. They require a
45-degree daylight plane roof
line on houses beginning 25
feet above what is called "pre-
development grade." .The
ordinance was made stricter
for the key by having it begin
at 20 feet.
Because the key is directly
in the path of tides and flood-,
water surges caused by hurri-
cane winds, federal guide-
lines require that new homes
be built 19.4 feet in the air.
The result is that two-story
houses with high ceilings
tower over older ones built at
ground level.
"The residents have asked
us how lotsizes and ratios are
calculated because underwa-
ter land is being factored into
the size of houses," County
Commissioner Jon Thaxton
said in May. "Flexibility in our
rules is being abused by cre-
ative architects. People are
turning storm surge space
under the first floor into living
space."


Three burglary



suspects arrested


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Police generally give high
priority to burglaries where
the home is occupied
because of the high risk to the
occupants.
Venice police took less
than 36 hours to arrest three
people who may have carried
out two residential burglaries
within hours of each other.
Both homes were occupied.
Arrested and charged with
loitering and prowling were
Jerry A. Crates, 34, 100 block
E. Airport Ave., Venice; Anne
M. Tuttle, 34, 100 block E.
Airport Ave., and Ryan S.
Lawrence, 24, 1100 block
Myrtle Ave., Venice.
Additional charges are
pending against all three.
According to the police
report, the first incident-hap-
pened in the early hours of
Dec. 2 in the 100 block of East
Base Avenue.
A woman was awakened
by her barking dog. She found
her rear glass slider open. The


screen had been cut. Her
purse was lying on the ground
outside the house.
A few hours later, in the 400
block Golden Beach
Boulevard, somebody broke
into the home and stole a
television set and some other
valuables. That home also
was occupied.
The burglars entered both
houses through the sliders.
About 3 am., Dec. 3, a tac-
tical surveillance team saw a
suspicious vehicle driving on
GoldenBeach Boulevard.
Crates, Tuttle and
Lawrence were in the car.
They admitted to' knowing
about the burglaries and led
detectives to to stolen TV
However, none of the three
would admit to actually par-
ticipating in the burglaries.
The report states that the
three suspects had stashed
the TV in the area, and were
on the way back to get it when
stopped by police.

Regional water plan shows promise


The Peace River/Manasota RegionalWater
Authority meets Wednesday to preview a
revised strategic plan. Members will find no
surprises as the plan calls for the same poli-
cies Director Pat Lehman and his staff have
preached for the past couple of years com-
bining all water resources and exclusivity.
It is a policy we agree with, albeit one that
has been difficult to sell.
Lance deHaven-Smith has written the
plan tweaked after members' input was
solicited.
Here are the key components:
Reorganizing the water-supply manage-
ment to give the authority more control over
water supplies, so the region will be less like-
ly to experience water wars similar to the
costly clashes in the Tampa Bay area and else-


where in the state.
Control of the water must shift from local
governments to the water authority to serve
regional interests rather than local Doing that
provides flexibility to increase the supply and
capacity; allows greater reliance on surface water;
spreads the cost among all members; reduces
water-supply vulnerabilities; and provides for
reserve capacity for emergencies.
To provide a regional supply, all utilities
must be interconnected.
Exclusive customers should have the
highest priority for use of water.
The authority should renegotiate the
2005 contract to eliminate a provision allow-
ing each county government to veto con-
struction projects within its jurisdiction even
if the projects do not involve county facilities.


The authority must maintain a water
supply master plan based on a 20-year plan,
The authority should collaborate with
local governments and permitting agencies
to address threats to the water supply, includ-
ing phosphate mining, agriculture, septic
tanks and urban runoff.
On the eve of presenting this plan to all its
members, the authority and Charlotte
County are involved in ongoing negotiations
over exclusivity.
Charlotte County commissioners have
voted to become an exclusive customer -
only DeSoto County is now if some condi-
tions are agreed on. Those conditions include
preferential treatment if water supplies in the
county are low and in planning new con-
struction; higher rates for nonexclusive mem-


bers; and denying members of the authority
who are not exclusive customers new alloca-:
tions of water, while allowing them to buy.
excess water.
Needless to say, some of the conditions
Charlotte has asked for ruffle the feathers of
other members especially Manatee and
Sarasota counties. And these issues paying
higher rates and guaranteeing supplies dur-
ing droughts are hurdles the authority
hopes to overcome with its strategic plan;
We like the idea that the authority wants to
put in a 20-year master plan and that it is will-
ing to address threats to the water supply -
including mining and urban runoff.
We think the authority is on the right track.
If we are to avoid water wars, as the plan says,
each member must give a little.


They need to get out more


BOB VEDDER
PUBLISHER

The Sarasota County
School Board was going to
reconsider Gary Norris' resig-
nationnext week. Instead, the
members opted to ask him
Tuesday to stay sort of.
A 3-2 vote is not a strong
endorsement and, in fact, is
partlywhyhequittobeginwith.
What they should have
done is what they did before
they hired him to begin with.
Many board members trav-
eled to Salina, Kan., to talk to
people in the schools and the
community to find out about
their potential candidate. The
more than 80 people they
talked to were all positive.
The current situation is a
little different, but nonethe-
less they need to talk. This
time they should have gone
out to lots of the schools and
get the opinions of the staff.
I have spoken to many
teachers in different schools
and found that there is a lot of
concern about Dr. Norris and
the wayhe has introduced his
programs and run the
schools. While the problem is
not so much with the pro-
grams themselves, it is more
with how he has not been lis-
tening to field staff about
their ideas. It has been classic
top-down management.
This school board has not
been in touch with the
schools either, like our school
boards used to be.
Although the members
have made a decision, they
should still get out and find
out what the feeling is.
Listening to their own
employees should be impor-
tant to them.
While community leaders
are in favor of Dr. Norris, they
are not the ones implement-
ing the NeXt Generation plan
or teaching our kids. While I
endorse his staying, it is only
with a plan for pulling togeth-
er a divided staff.
Whether Norris stays or
leaves, the board needs to
make contact with the
schools and be part of the cat-
alyst for change.

ball on the seventh tee when
a gorgeous girl, attired in a

He looked at her, obviously
displeased, and said,"I told
you distinctly, only if it
rained."

The Sertoma Club of
Venice is having a Christmas
morning for small kids at the
YMCA this Saturday, Dec. 9,


from 8 to 11 am. Jim Foubister
has headed this "Meet Santa"
event, coupled with a continen-
tal breakfast and a goodie bag.
Very nice small kids event -
don't miss it
******
Tomorrow night is the tra-
ditional Christmas walk
downtown. All the stores will
be open and have nice things
to drink or eat and, of
course, it will help you get
ahead of the shopping curve.
Bruce Crisman, the new
Venice MainStreet program
manager, has said that many
stores will be open other
Thursday nights leading to
Christmas.
The following Thursday,
Dec. 14, the Venice High
Chorus, will perform at the
fountain on Miami Avenue.
The members are hoping to
raise enough money to go to
Carnegie Hall this spring.
The new city Christmas
decorations really look nice.
Thanks to Marty Black and
the design committee.

The Christmas Boat Parade
of Lights was a huge success,
with 46 boats the most
boats in years. Good weather
helped.
John Osmulsld, the chair-
man; Taylor MacPherson;
Jeana Nottingham; Jim
Beach; Irv Knoph; and many
others made it happen. Phil
Phillips of the Venice Police
Department, the fire depart-
ment and sheriff's office all
contributed to the successful
handling of tens of thousands
of people.

Got a chance to judge sci-
ence projects with 10s of
other volunteers at Venice
Elementary and was incredi-
bly impressed by the stu-
dents' work.
There were projects on
desalination, electromagnetic
fields, reusing water bottles,
angles of shark's teeth and
decomposition of materials.
In this last project, Brandon
Callaghan showed the aver-
age person uses two large
trees a year.
******
There are many Toys for
Tots locations, including
Montgomery Carpets and the
Venice Gondolier Sun.
******
If you get a home-deliv-
ered Gondolier Sun, today
you received an annual calen-
dar of Venice events (they're
not in vending machine and
store copies).
It's in a new format this
year much larger, more
color and many other nice
features. You can get extras at

Undervote raises
doubts for her
EDITOR:
In my Precinct 105,
Holiday Park, on Nov. 7, I
found that my vote for
Christine Jennings did not
record. I went .over it and
tapped the spot again and
then the "Vote" button. I am
not 100 percent sure that my
vote counted. I have voted for


more than 50 years and this is
the first time that I have felt
cheated and angry..
At the time I thought lit-
tle of the lapse; but that
evening on television,
probably Channel 6,
Sarasota, a woman men-
tioned that she and about a
dozen others had experi-
enced the same thing.
When I asked friends here
in my park, several had had
the same thing happen.
, At no time have I heard
anyone who voted for Vern
Buchanan say that his or her
vote did not register.
When I read the roster of
total votes posted on the front
window of our Phase 1
Clubhouse, I took notes. Of
338 total votes cast for U.S.
Senator, there were nine
undervotes.
For Seat 5 for commission-
er in North Port, there was a
total of 322 votes with 25
undervotes. For District 13,
the hotly contested race,
there were 93 votes cast for
Vern Buchanan, 132 votes
cast for Christine Jennings,
and 122 undervotes for a total
of 347.
Does this not throw up a
red flag?
I am a registered Re-
publican and do not know
Christine Jennings from Eve;
however, I switched my vote
because of the dirty cam-
paign waged by Vern
Buchanan. He endorsed all
of the nasty things that were

LET 'EM HAVE IT! HAVE YOU HAD A

PROBLEM WITH A GENERIC DRUG?

CALL US AT 207-1111.

Sometimes you

need the real thing


Caution. All generics are
not created equal. One of my
generic prescriptions for my
heart disease could have hurt
me. After some investigation,
I found that the generic was
in litigation and the company
had stopped making the
generic, yet the pharmacy
gave them to me. I was told
the FDA had not pulled the
drug. There apparently was a
glut on the market. Two
physicians have confirmed
that that generic was not
good for me. It could have
hurt my heart. The same is
true of another generic drug
given to me, a drug that can
deviate 20 percent each day
- from a 100 mg prescrip-
tion, one day it can be 120, the
next day 80. It's especially
harmful when the drug is to
help your brain and your
behavior. It's extremely seri-
ous. The worst is that your
pharmacist can give you a
generic and your doctor
might never know. If your
doctor writes "brand name
only," it can still be overrid-
den by the pharmacy. Please,
talk with your doctor, let him
or her help you. I'm sure there
are some good generics. Only
"medically necessary" written,
on your prescription will get
you the real thing.


Limited revote. The thing to
do on the vote between
Buchanan and Jennings is to
have a revote on that only. It
shouldn't be impossible to
make a list of all who voted at
the polling places with under-
vote problems, and then allow
only those people to come and
recast their vote for that race, on
paper. I voted absentee on
paper, so I assume my vote was
countedwith no questions. Let's
revote those in question. There's
no way 18,000 people would not
vote unarguably the most
important vote on the ballot
Let it stay. No, the Venice
Police Department gun range
should not be moved. I live on
Capri Isles Boulevard and have
been here for 12 years. The gun
range was here before I moved
here and it is not that bad. These
people were aware of it when
they moved here. Let it stay
where it belongs, near thepolice
station.
No problem. I want to
respond to the article you had
on Mr. Book of Ironwood Circle
regarding the shooting range of
the police department I don't
really see anyproblems with the
shooting range being over there.
It's been there for a long time.
I live closer to the shooting

'Fat lady' hasn't sung about park yet


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


Sometimes watching Ven-
ice City Council deliberate is
like watching sausage being
made the result may be
acceptable but the process is
not appetizing.
At its Nov. 28 meeting
council approved changes to
its previous decisions con-
cerning facilities and services
at Tramonto Vista Park In an
earlier article I opined that
council might find some
strengths in the arguments
from those who wanted a
more "active" as well as those
seeking a more "passive"
park.
As I see the results of the
meeting, folks wanting vol-
leyball, swingsets, etc. (there
was no conflict over them),
plus three pavilions 60 feet in
diameter and some kind of
performance space, got a
conceptual OK from council.
However, several mem-
bers, primarily Vicki Taylor
(newly elected vice mayor)
and John Moore, raised ques-
tions about the budget
impact for example, the
consultant's plan for a perfor-
mance stage was estimated to
cost more than $500,000.
Taylor and Moore questioned
approving such an item with-
out really having a plan in
front of them.
Almost two years ago
council, at former Mayor
Dean Calamaras' recommen-
dation, had agreed to build
one pavilion and then con-
sider building the others if a


need was demonstrated.
The sausage-making
occurred as council tried to
undo a motion by John
Simmonds to approve the
entire consultant's plan they
had previously only partially
supported.
Moore had just raised his
concerns about costs within
the concept of approving new
feature when Simmonds,
apparently without consider-
ing Moore's suggestions,
moved to approve the old
plan. Almost all council
members had at least some
reservations about that
approach and they began
offering amendments to
Simmonds' motion.
City Manager Marty Black
asked council to be more spe-
cific about parts of the plan
theywished to include so staff
could make detailed specifi-
cations, get bids, etc. Blacks
efforts helped council avoid
approving an amorphous
proposal, as it seemed about
to do.
One amendment to Sim-
monds' motion was to move
the volleyball court to a place
closer to the beach. Another
was to eliminate a fountain
that would shoot processed
wastewater into the air.
Another was to agree to dune
crossings that might also pro-
vide benches for sunset view-
ing, perhaps picnics, in the
style of Service Club Park.
Another was to consider
options for the performance
space, including using' a
mobile stage that is used in
other parks for concerts. Still
another was to consider dif-
ferent roofing materials for
the roofs of the pavilions, per-
haps a Seminole thatch as at
Sharky's, rather than metal.
While City Clerk Lori
Steltzer was trying to keep
council on parliamentary
track, Mayor Fred Hammett
began what appeared to be
an angry exchange with her in


which he seemed to feel he
knew better than she how to
process the amendments.
Steltzer, widely admired for
her competence and cool
temperament, demonstrated
both by a calm response.
Lost in the ad-hoc process
of final approval and not
eliminated was a viewing
platform over the treated-
wastewater lake. Some coun-
cil members thought the plat-
form was looking over the
gulf but later, in informal
comments after the meeting
when I called this to their
attention, they said that pro-
vision would go. Black also
said it would not be part of
the specifications and cost
estimates staff would later
present.
While the advocates ap-
plauded (theoretically a
council "no-no" but which
the mayor did riot limit) as
their spokesman presented
their views and at the end- a
natural expression of their
enthusiasm given their suc-
cessful advocacy in gov-
ernment one learns when the
"fat lady" has not yet sung her
final note.
Certainly council will ap-
prove changes in the direc-
tion they sought, but with a
project that will cost millions
of borrowed dollars and the
understanding that the beach
reef construction will use up
an unknown amount of the
remaining bond funds, some
of the items approved in prin-
ciple will almost certainly be
trimmed back or phased in.
Also still to be determined
is how the county will feel
about administering, i main-
taining and policing an
active, even if limited, perfor-
mance venue. The county
administers many city parks
under an agreement with the
city.
During the public com-
ment period, Web site writer
and editor John Patten


warned the "active" park
group they might have been
used, unknowingly or know-
ingly, as a tool for developers
who are planning an airport
hotel and see a three-pavilion
park with performance space
as a marketing tool.
The group voiced excep-
tion, but the presentation by
Michelle Ryan, an employee
of the Venice Area Chamber
of Commerce as a spokes-
man, along with another
statement by her father,
John Ryan, president of the
chamber, coupled with little
paper badges worn by sup-
porters, did nothing to dis-
pell the notion that the
town's good old boy network
has been instrumental in
establishing this well-
orchestrated "out of thin air"
group.

Paying the price when shipping


BY BOB FLISS
STAFF WRITER

The simple act of shipping
a holiday package has, like
nearly'everything else in the
American economy, become
fraught with consumer choic-
es.
A generation ago, the only
alternative for most people
was go to the post office, grab
a place in line, and hope the
line moved fast.
Today, there's plenty of
help available, if you're willing
to trade money for time and
convenience.
Pack-and-ship stores have
established a tidy niche
among independent business
opportunities. Although there
are some large chain opera-
tions like The UPS Store, a
pack-and-ship business, re-
quires a relatively modest
amount of capital to start.
Indeed, local indepen-
dents say that their success
depends largely on the level
of personal service they're
able to provide. So, pack-and-
ship is a good business
opportunity for an entrepre-
neur of modest means who's
willing to work hard.
Price-less
Most independent pack-
and-ships will offer U.S.
Postal Service parcel post ser-
vice, with the three major pri-
vate carriers UPS, FedEx
and DHL as alternatives.
They also offer a wide range
of miscellaneous services.
Most will also pack parcels
to a customer's specifications.
Many can crate furniture and
other bulky items and
arrange for freight shipment.
Some do light commercial
printing like business cards,
some handle bulk mailing,
some sell office supplies it's
all a matter of the owner find-
ing a mix of products and ser-
vices that will, hopefully.

The advantage to con-
sumers is that there's never
been so many shipping
options, said GaryVulgamore,
owner of M.B.A. Packing &
Shipping. But there's also a
problem: It's increasingly dif-
ficult to make price general-
izations.
Trade-offs
A 5-pound package going
from Florida to Michigan will
cost more or less depending
on its exact dimensions, its
ZIP code destination, the
amount of insurance desired
and, of course, the speed of
delivery you request.
Oscar Guerrero, owner of
Goin' Postal, said the industry
standard is to use software that
gives customers automatic
price quotes from all carriers on
a particular package.
As a generalization, Guer-
rero said, parcel post is often
cheapest for smaller packages
less than 5 pounds.
"But as the packages get
heavier, the private carriers
become cheaper than the
USPS. And they also provide
insurance automatically and
the packages are completely
trackable," he said.
For example, UPS provides
up to $100 insurance as part
of its service for all packages.
The Postal Serxice charges
$1.35 for the first $50 value.
$2.30 for $100 and $1.05 for
ever- $100 additional value.
Weighty issue
Packages that are light but
bulky may be the biggest
cause of sticker shock, said
lean Waldorf. who with her
T husband. Lee, owns The
Shipping Post.
Her operation is somewhat
different from other local
pack-and-ships because it's
essentially a privately operat-
ed branch of the U.S. Postal
Senrice that's authorized to
COWARD provide nearly all postal ser-
iices, with the exception of

some international mail. The
Shipping Post also provides
UPS but not FedEx or DHL.
Both the USPS and UPS
have two surcharge levels for
oversize boxes, Waldorf
explained. And she sees many
oversize boxes each
Christmas season, with the
ever-popular stuffed toy ani-
mals the chief culprit.
Sending a big panda bear to
the grandkids might cost
more than one expects.
"People are always asking,
'Why does it cost so much, it
only weighs a few pounds?'
and I have to tell them that it's
because of the size of the
box," Waldorf said.
Sent packing
Along with finding the
cheapest carrier, pack-and-
ship stores can and will pack
your gift parcels, for a fee
varying on the amount of ser-
vice desired.
Jean Vulgamore, who is co-
owner of M.BA with husband
Gary, said that "store-packlater"
services are becoming increas-
inglypopular.
Here's how it works. You do
your Christmas shopping and
drop the goodies at the pack-
and-ship store, with shipping
instructions. The shop will pack
everything to your specifica-
tions and phone you with the
bill All you have to provide is
your credit card number.
"We've had very few com-
plaints," she said.
Some customers prefer to


bring their purchases in, wait
to inspect the boxes and pay
right there. But more choose
the convenience of simply
dropping off their purchases.
Peaking
While stuffing a panda
bear in a box probably won't
tax anyone's packing skill, it
may be best to hire a profes-
sional when shipping fragile
items, especially when there
are several in a single box that
might bump each other dur-
ing shipment.
"If you think you've got
enough packaging around
something, do a little extra.
It's not going to hurt," said
Lesley Collins, who owns
Sunshine Pack & Ship with
her husband, Alan.
"It's a gift so we want
people to be surprised, but
for the right reason, not the
wrong reason," she added.
Seasonal, business will
most likely peak between
now and Monday, Dec. 11,
said Jean Vulgamore. That's
because it's still early enough
in the shopping season to
send a package by the cheap-
est ground transportation
with the expectation of deliv-
ery by Christmas.
So, what's happeningthis
weekend and next is that
many shoppers will be hitting
the stores, and then heading
as soon as possible for either
the post office, one of the pri-
vate parcel services or a local
pack-and-ship.

One of the daily pleasures of the Chamber staff is the opportunity to reler a
Chamber member to an inquinng.area resoieni or another Chamber member;
Recently, a Chamber member-io-member referral proved to be an initial
success plus an added bonus.

A Chamber member wrote: "I want to thank the Chamber for referring Tim's
Automotive of Venice for my car's issues. What a great experience! They
were up front, honest and fixed my car in a timely manner!"

The letter writer continued, "I also, wanted you to know that recently on a
trip from Orlando I stopped at a rest area about 50 miles from Venice on I-
75 and my car wouldn't restart (this had nothing to do with the service
provided by Tim and his staff). I called Tim and he suggested that to save
cost, it would be better to contact someone for assistance nearby. I did
that and while waiting all day for the automotive fiasco to get resolved at
the rest area, Tim graciously called me to see if I was O.K. and if I got
someone to help me!! Now that's service and caring about his customers."

The Education and Business Development Committee agreed in naming
Tim's Automotive of Venice our Business of the Month Award winner.

Tim's Automotive of Venice, Inc. is located at 208 B. Warfield Avenue in
Venice.

BY SUSAN CAIRO
SSTAFF WRITER
On the 65th anniversary of
the attack on Pearl Harbor, a
Venice High graduate will be
setting foot in the Middle East
to do his part in another war.
Before Pfc. Brandon
Gaudin Henry left for Iraq, he
spoke to Barbara Farrar's
World Culture Geography
class. A 2005 VHS graduate,
Henry talked with students
about what it's like to be a sol-
dier today.
He is a member of the U.S.
Army's 10th Mountain
Division, and he will be arriv-
ing in Baghdad Dec 7.
"There is nothing stronger
than a U.S. Army soldier,"
Henry said. "The Army isn't
for everyone, but I knew it
was for me."
After 9/11
"After 9/11 happened, I
knew then and there my des-
tiny was to become an
American soldier in the U.S.
Army," Henry said.
He serves as a gunner in
the 543rd Military Police
Company known as the War
Dragons. He told students
what the military police do in
the combat zone as well as in
the states.
Trains Iraqi police
He is in the second pla-
toon nicknamed The
SReapers which will train
Iraqi police. They will be in
Iraq for one year.
Farrar asked Henry what
the Army has taught him so
far.
"It definitely taught me not
to take anything for granted,
Slike-the simple things in life,"
a he said.
Henry cited a roof over his
Head, a warm meal and a dry


ad off to Iraq

place to sleep as things ,the
Army has taught him to
appreciate.
Choices
His talk with the students
focused on their choices.
"I told them that their
actions now will affect their
lives later down the road," he
said.
"Everybody will come to a
point in their life when they
think they can't go on, but you
just have to keep your chin up


and drive on."
Henry is an Army brat. His
father is a retired combat
engineer. His last duty station
was Fort Drum, N.Y., which is
the same location where his
son was stationed before
being deployed to Iraq.
Henry plans to speak to the
entire student body about his
experiences when he returns
from Iraq.

Bells, chimes

and kettles

make the

season merry

Ring in the holidays
The North Port Orchestra
presents "Seasons Greetings,"
Sunday, Dec. 10, at 7 p.m. at
the North Port Performing
Arts Center at North Port High
School, 6400W Price Blvd.
The Handbell Choir of
North Port will be featured to
help ring in the season.
Members of the band,
chorale, orchestra and com-
munity make up the Handbell
Choir. Geoff Winters, from
radio station WARM (92.1
FM), will narrate "TWas the
Night Before Christmas." The
orchestra also will perform
music from the "Nutcracker"
ballet, the hit movie "Polar
Express" and the sounds of
Mannheim Steamroller.
Tickets are $8 per person
and may be purchased 'at the
North Port Performing Arts
Center box office located on
the high school campus. Box
office hours are Monday
through Friday, 10 a.m. to 1
p.m., as well as one hour
before the performance. The
box office phone number is
(941) 426-8479 or (866) 406-
7722.
Chime in
The Salvation, Army of
Venice is looking for bell
ringers for its annual kettle
campaign. There will be ket-
tles at locations such as Publix
Super Markets in Venice,
North Port and Englewood,
through Dec. 23. Ringers gen-
erally volunteer for two-hour
shifts so a group of five friends
could cover a whole day, 10
a.m.-8 p.m. Church and office,
groups often adopt kettles for
a day, a week or even for the
entire campaign. St. Marks,
Venice Presbyterian and the
Venice Nokomis Methodist
Church are just some of the
churches whose members
commit to manning a kettle
for the entire season. Kettles
are not manned on Sundays.
To learn how you can help
with thO campaign, which
generates money for a variety
of needs inthis area, call Capt.
Chris Farrell or kettle chair
Fred McCloe at (941) 484-
6227. The people who receive
a Thanskgiving meal that they
would not otherwise have
and the children who receive
holiday gifts they might not
have and people made home-
less for some reason, all will
thank you. When kettles can-
not be manned for the whole
day, the Salvation Army occa-
sionally has to pay people to
ring the bell. This cuts into the
proceeds of an organization
that works so hard to keep its
costs down so that as much
money as possible goes where
needed rather than for
expenses. Please help.
If you cannot man a kettle
but would like to contribute,
send your check to the
Salvation Army of Venice
Kettle Drive, 1051 Albee Farm
Road, Venice, FL 34292.

A local cooking show, The
New Florida Kitchen, is on TV
77 times a week on four dif-
ferent channels.
Its star, Chef Rolf Zahnd,
co-owner of the 10-year-old
Saltwater Cafe in Nokomis,
plays himself on the locally
produced reality show. He has
done more than 114 shows
and is well into his third year
as a TV personality.
Unlike food prepared on
other reality shows, the food
prepared by Chef Rolf is quite
tasty. Most of the time, the
recipes prepared on the show
are right off the Saltwater

menu, but prepared in small-
er quantities for show guests
- real people from the area.
With so many viewings,
the guests often become as
recognizable as the chef.
Shows are taped in his own
Florida kitchen, on the lanai
of his Venice house. Guests sit
on raised chairs on the pool
side of a tilpd counter, which
gives them a great view of the
proceedings. The chef holds
forth in the heart of it all,
working primarily at the cen-
ter island, which contains a
built-in range and oven.
Behind him is a grill, addi-
tional ovens and to one side,
additional counter space and
a sink. Below and in front of
the counter where the guests
are served, there is another
sink that can be filled with ice
to chill bottles of beer, wine
and sparkling Saratoga Water
from Gold Coast Eagle
Distributing, which supplies


the restaurant.
I was a guest on a recent
show, with Gunther Kem of
Nokomis, ClearChannel
Marketing Manager Teresa
Evan, Melissa Chambers, Tod
Matthews andBobAlexander of
ClearChannel's station WIKX, a
country music station.
We dined on stone crab
claws with a remoulade
sauce, grilled crab-stuffed,
saffron rice, asparagus and,
for dessert, broiled grapefruit
with vanilla ice cream and
strawberry sauce. Show seg-
ments are planned to show-
case the food preparation and
also to introduce guests, who
are usually from the area.
Zahnd lives in a multi-
kitchen home
When we arrived for the
taping, the chef was in his
home's indoor kitchen, using
the back of a large chef's knife
to crack stone crab claws, in
preparation for the show. On
camera in the Florida kitchen
a few minutes later, he did
more claw cracking, this time
using a large table spoon,
which proved equally effec-
tive and looked to be less
dangerous.
Between the two kitchens,
Zahnd has gas and electric
stoves and ovens, boilers,
grills, a built-in deep fat fryer,
two trash compactors, stand-
up refrigerators, drawer
refrigerators, at least two
dishwashers, slide-out spice
racks and more. A brass-
trimmed black double-wide
Le Comu range, which had to
be installed before the back
wall of the kitchen was com-
pleted, is the focal point of the
new two-story family


room/kitchen. A walk-in
wine cellar is nearby, off the
home's dining room.
For that day's show, he pre-
pared crab claws with a dip-
ping sauce as an appetizer,
crab-stuffed shrimp over saf-
fron rice, topped with aspara-
gus for the entree and grape-
fruit'topped with brown sugar
and broiled for dessert. The
grapefruit was set upon a
drizzle of strawberry sauce
and accompanied by a scoop
of vanilla ice cream.
Matthews and Alexander
helped with the shrimp
preparation. Evans and
Chambers put the brown
sugar on top of the grapefruit,
and I helped plate it up by
drizzling the strawberry
sauce on the plate.
That is the general format
of the show- Zahnd involves
his guests in the preparation.
The taping was finished in
less than an hour and as we
were leaving, the chef was
alreadymakingpreparations for
the taping of a second showthat

a.m. and the second at 1 p.m.
Shows usually air within a week
or two. When the last show was
on tape, Zahnd headed off to
the next kitchen the one in
his restaurant, The Saltwater
Cafe.
The restaurant
Zahnd is a man who sim-
ply likes to cook, whether at
home or at work. Married to
Barry Moore, the daughter of
Venice City Councilman John
Moore, Zahnd often cooks at
home, too, simply because he
enjoys it so much.
The couple also likes to eat
out.
"We go for dinner," he said.
"The kids want pizza and
Barry wants her salad."
Raised in Switzerland, Rolf
has been cooking nearly all
his life, first in Swiss restau-
rants and later in South Africa
and other European coun-
tries before he came to

Florida. His management
skills were honed in the Swiss
Army where he supervised a
staff of 80 and prepared
meals for 5,000 each day -
breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Several years in culinary
school and several diplomas
later, Zahnd earned the desig-
nation of Master Chef.
His parents came first to
the United States, moving to
Venice. One day when they
were dining at the Mucky
Duck on Captiva Island they
learned the restaurant was in
need of a chef, and they told
the owner about their son.
The owner called Zahnd but
Zahnd didn't return the call
for six months. When he final-
ly did make that call, he was
hired. He met Barry at the
Mucky Duck where she was
the manager.
Eventually, the chef's par-
ents, Pavel and Katharina
Roubel, learned that the two-
year-old Saltwater Cafe was
for sale by its New York
founders.
Togetherness
"Let's all go together," they
said. And they did.

Chef Rolf's outdoor kitchen, where he tapes The New Florida
Kitchen, features electric and gas stoves and a grill plus sinks
and preparation area. Plates of stone crab claws are ready to
be served to guests.

It's the thought that counts


BROTHER CRAIG
1~ t 1i(!, '


Well, let me tell you, I sure
hope we do not have the
same fiasco as last year.
What I mean is, clerks in
stores were forbidden to say
"Merry Christmas" to cus-
tomers (even those buying a
Christmas tree.) It seems it
offended people who do not
celebrate Christmas, just like
"have a good day" offends
people who do not want to.
Mind you, I think people
have become too offendable.
(Yes, I did just invent a new
word.)
When I was a kid, stores
put up signs that read "Merry
Christmas" and "Happy
Hanukkah." But things have
changed.
Last year, after Christmas,
a woman asked me (and
there I was, standing in my
Catholic monk's habit, in all


my medieval glory) how was
"the holiday." She was afraid
to say Christmas! This is not
the same as "I'll see you after
the holidays," meaning the
Thanks giving- Christmas-
NewYear's blur.
A friend was asked to buy
some cards for the Winter
Festival! This was in England,
not when Russia was the
U.S.S.R
Next I'll be hearing "Happy
Vernal Equinox" or "Happy
Shortest Day of the Year."
Then again, it was in England,
while I was studying at
Oxford, that I was wished a
"lovely birthday of Jesus." By a
Jewish student.
What is the problem, folks?
We are referring to a greeting.
We are wishing people well.
Still, in this country, that can
get one can get into trouble.
I do not care if I am wished
a holy day I do not celebrate. I
just say, "Thank you," as my
mother taught me to do in the
days where politeness was
rightly much more important
than political correctness.
Then there are people who
are offended if you mention
any greeting that is religious.
These people have become
so afraid that, if you sneeze,
you do not hear, "God bless
you" which goes back to


NEED YOUR STUFF SOLDFAST (i.liliijierSll

the Middle Ages, as sneezing
was a sign of the Black Plague.
But rather, they say "Bless
you." But who is blessing me?
God? The person who said it?
Eddie Cantor? But still I am
not offended they are
wishing me well.
Then again, I seldom
become offended, not even
when told I look like combi-
nation of JohnWayne and Zsa
Zsa Gabor.
Years ago they made a
musical version for television
of O. Henry's "The Gift of the
Magi." They added much to
the story, but did a fine job.
I will never forget some of
the dialogue at the beginning
of the movie.
A young couple, just before
Christmas, are admiring their
newborn baby. A young man
walks up to them and says, "A
baby! Merry Christmas!" The
wife responds, "But we're
Jewish." Instantly the young
man responds "That's how it
was on the first Christmas."
So, Merry Hanukkah and
Happy Christmas from all of
us here at the monastery!

Local woman takes pride in helping others

the people who really need
them will be able to benefit
from them."
Beach wrote a letter to area
churches explaining what it
was like to live in 1929 during
the Great Depression, when
taking a shower and having a
hot meal were practically lux-
uries.
."Back then, hundreds and
hundreds of people were
homeless," she said. "The
counties opened bathhouses,
and for five cents you could
get a clean shower. What
about today's homeless?
Where do they go to bathe?"
Good idea
Beach didn't receive the
response she hoped for from
area churches. However; that
didn't stop her from asking
the more than 230 fellow
members of North Port


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT EDITOR

Aftet donating more than
50 bags of canned goods to
the Salvation Army, LaCasa
resident Norma Beach
learned an area food pantryis
helping homeless individuals.
This saddened Beach, as
she thought she could do
something to help Jim
Dooley, founder of the Arise
and Shine Ministry in North
Port.
"When we collected the
groceries from all of the
LaCasa residents, we thought
it was a wonderful gesture,"
Beach said. "We take pride in
helping out in North Port.
Then I learned about the
Arise and Shine food pantry
and figured there was nothing
I could do until February
because we just had a
canned-food drive."
Beach was impressed after
learning that Dooley opens
the makeshift pantry a
home along Tamiami Trail
near the Biscayne Plaza to
the homeless. He often helps
men and women who need
food and a hot shower. The
problem is these individuals
often don't leave the pantry
with personal hygiene prod-
ucts because the pantry is pri-
marily stocked with canned
good donations and not
socks, underwear or soap.
"I realized there is a real
need here," Beach said. "If we

Last week, Beach began
collecting razors, soap, socks
and underwear for her
Christmas for The Homeless
program.
"No one should be without a
Christmas gift," she said. "If I
were homeless, I would want to
have a fresh shower and some
clean underwear."
Beach is now asking anyone
who will help to drop off per-
sonal hygiene items to the
church at 3450 Biscayne Drive,
until noon on weekdays.
"I think collecting women's
underwear and men's T-shirts
and underwear in all sizes
would be a good idea," she
said. "They will be' wrapped
and given to the homeless
when they go to Arise and
Shine for help."

WELL-BEING


Ten tips to help ease life with a chronic disease


STAFF REPORT
No matter what the diagno-
sis, finding out that you have a
chronic illness can be a fright-
ening and confusing experi-
ence. Following are 10 steps,
provided by the National
Multiple Sclerosis Society, to
help people cope with the
news more easily:
1. Educate yourself about the
disease. You owe it to yourself to
know as much as possible.
Contact health organizations
specific to your illness, such as
the National MS Society, for
comprehensive information.
The Internet, bookstores and
the library are also great
resources.
2. Choose a health care
provider that is right for you.
Even before making your first
appointment, make a list of'
questions to ask. Some great
basic questions often over-
looked are:
* Does the provider accept my
health insurance?
* What do I need to bring to
my first appointment? (for


example, a list of your med-
ications, recent lab reports,
MRI scans, etc.)
* Approximately how many
other people with my condi-
tion does this provider see in
a year?
* If the primary professional is
not available, who helps me?
3. Compare treatments and
make an informed decision
with your health-care provider.
Starting on a medication soon
after diagnosis is often the best
defense for many diseases. In
the case of multiple sclerosis,
treatment can often slow its
effects.
4. Connectwith others to build a
good support system. You are
not alone. Interacting with oth-
ers in your community or
nationwide who are living with
or affected by the same disease
can help you in choosing the
right health care provider, an
important factor when coping
with a chronic illness. Join self-
help groups (either in person or
online) and get involved in pro-
grams and events through local
health organizations.


5. Think about how and when
you'll tell your family, friends
and colleagues. Many dis-
eases affect not only the per-
son with the illness, but
everyone who cares about
him/her as well. Having at
least one friend or family
member who knows what
you're going through can ease
the burden, and can help you
decide how much to tell other
people. It is also important to
remember that the whole world
doesn't need to know about
your diagnosis. Disclosure may
sometimes result in prejudice,
ignorance and even rejection.
Contact the National MS
Society [(800) FIGHT-MS] for
information on disclosure
issues such as how and when to
tell whom about your disease.
6. Take care of yourself
through healthy living. For a
person living with an illness,
the road to wellness involves
more than medical treatment
of the disease; exercise, good
nutrition and preventative
care are vital elements in
maintaining a satisfying life,


just as is true for the general
public.
7. Make wise career choices.
Knowing your company's
policies and your employ-
ment rights could help maxi-
mize your options before
possible problems arise.
8. Plan for your financial future.
Since many diseases pose
uncertainties about the future,
don't wait to formulate your
financial plans, evaluate insur-
ance coverage and examine
other practical issues.
9. Make your voice heard.
Joining disease advocacy
groups is an important step. By
joining programs, such as the
MS Action Network
(nationalmssociety. org/action-
network), you can receive feder-
al and state legislative alerts
about issues that are important
to you and your way of life.
Becoming an activist is the best
way to ensure that the needs of
those with chronic diseases are
considered when important
decisions are, made in the pri-
vate and public sector.
10. Take a walk Or a bike ride.

; I|HUMOKRIr


Editor's note: (This classic
Dave Barry column was originally
Iers" published Sept. 10, 1995.)
Once again, we are forced
to ask ourselves, as a society,
whether nature should be
legal.
Consider a story from the
June 22 Manchester (N.H.)
Union Leader, written by Paul
Tracy and sent in by alert
reader Arnie Alpert. This story
states that on June 20 a
SLaconia, N.H., police officer
was called to the municipal
water-treatment facility in
M response to and as you
lo read this column, please bear
in mind that I am not making
any of these newspaper quo-
4e stations up "a report of a
suspicious-acting wood-
chuck that would not let peo-
ple out of the building." The
iclude sea officer sized up the situation
eaks, prime and, according to the story,
id grouper, "determined that the animal'
hef C3eorge needed to be euthanized and
nch menu tried to run it over with his
s Lunch list cruiser." So far, so good. Law-
items such enforcement experts will tell
r meat loaf you, after they've had a few
sh fry plat- belts, that in a situation where

sary, advise it of its rights.
am doing," Unfortunately, things did


KITCHEN from page lB
Everyone in the family is
involved in some way, from
management and accounting
to hostessing and greeting
guests. His mother manages
the front of the restaurant and
his father is an accountant.
George Anderson, long-time
chef at the old Smitty's, is
Zahnd's co-chef.
"He watches out for my
back when I am not here,"
Zahnd said. "He has been
with us for 10 years."
When not at the restaurant
or taping a TV show, Zahnd
maybe at home, cooking with
his children. It has been two
years since he was in
Switzerland: His' sister still
lives there, and he plans to go
there later in the year for the
confirmation of his god-child
and to see his sister who lives
in Interlochen.
"We love Venice, and we try
to help," Zahnd said. "We
always do the Sun Fiesta .to
help."
The restaurant's lobster
fest also is for.the locals, he
said. It is planned for a time
when there are few tourists in
town. For this year's fest, the
restaurant ordered 1,000 lob-
sters.
For those who like wine
with their meals, the restau-
rant has a cellar holding more
than 500 bottles in all price
ranges. The chef said that
about 50 percent of diners
purchase wine priced at $20-
$40 per bottle, 40 percent
choose bottles in the $40-$80
price range and 10 percent
purchase those in the $100-
$500 range.
"We base the whole restau-
rant on the families who live
around here," he said. "I want
a nice atmosphere where you
can feed a whole family on a
$15 pizza but also have spe-


cial items."
Other items ii
bass, New York ste
rib, mahi-mahi ar
plus salads and C
Specials. The lui
includes an Expres

not go exactly according to
plan. The story quotes a plant
employee as saying, "When
he got out after running over
it, I think he thought it was
dead; then the thing sprung
up and attacked him."
At this point, the officer -
and if you have never been
attacked by a woodchuck,
then do not second-guess this
decision pulled his 9 mm
revolver and commenced fir-
ing.
"We think he emptied a
clip," a plant employee is
quoted as saying, "but we
could only find eight casings
on the pavement."
The story states that dur-
ing the battle, the officer,
seeking to escape the wood-
chuck, "jumped up on the
cruiser and injured his knee."
Fortunately, before anybody
else could be hurt, the wood-
chuck went to that Big
Burrow in the Sky.
I wish I could tell you that
this was an isolated incident. I
wish I could look you in the
eyeball and say, "This was just
one lone disgruntled wood-
chuck, possibly a former
postal employee, who fortu-
nately will never again terror-
ize humanity, thanks to a
quick-acting police officer,
who, fortunately, was not car-
rying nuclear weapons."
But I cannot say that. For
one thing, I lack the lung
capacity. For another thing, I
have here an article from the
Gaithersburg (Md.) Gazette,
written by April E. Fulton and
sent in by several alert read-
ers, which states, "Nine resi-
dents of the SouthVillage area
of MontgomeryVillage two
adults and seven children -
were playing near Docena
Court on the morning of June
15 when they suddenly were
charged by a band of about a
dozen squirrels."

the rodents


The article quotes one of
the women who was bitten
on the foot as saying: "We
were just playing in the yard,
like we do every day, and sud-
denly, out of nowhere, about
12 squirrels started charging
us, making these high-
pitched, shrill noises." A
neighbor is quoted as saying:
"The squirrels that day went
crazy."
The article states that on
June 21, a representative of
the Maryland Department of
Natural Resources inspected
the area and "found no
abnormal behavior from the
squirrels."
Of course not. They may be
squirrels, but they are not stu-
pid. They're not about to go
after a government official,
not after what happened to'
the woodchuck. No, they put
on a cute little Walt Disney
show for the Maryland
Department of Natural
Resources, squeaking and
scampering around with
acorns in their cheeks. But
you may rest assured that as
soon as the coast was clear,
they resumed smoking tiny
cigarettes and planning their
next attack.
They will stop at nothing,
as we can see from the follow-
ing headline from a Sept. 2,
1994 front-page article in the
Missoula Missoulian, written
by Michael Downs and sent
in by many alert readers:
FLAMING SQUIRRELS
IGNITE FIRE
The story states that "two
electrocuted squirrels fell
from a power line Thursday
morning, their flaming bod-
ies igniting a small grass fire
near Tarkio." A fire official is
quoted as saying that it could
have been a male and a
female squirrel engaged in an
act of "burning rodent pas-
sion." (The fire official does


not point out that both
"Rodent Passion" and
"Flaming Squirrels" would be
excellent names for rock
bands; this was probably just
an oversight.)
At this point, you're saying:
"Dave, you have presented
ample journalistic evidence
here to prove that the animal
kingdom is attempting, for
whatever reason, to wipe out
the entire human race. But at
least members of the news
media are safe!"
I wish I could agree, but,
tragically, I cannot not in
light of a recent Associated
Press item from Kennewick,
Wash., sent in by several alert
readers, which begins: "A TV
reporter's hair gel apparently
attracted a swarm of bees that
stung him more than 30 times
yesterday." The reporter was
doing a story about beekeep-
ing when the attack occurred;
the story states that the bee-
keeper, in an effort to help,
covered the reporter's .head
with a protective hood, but
unfortunately, the hood "also
turned out to contain bees."
I am sure that you, as a
person concerned about the
First Amendment, have the
same reaction to this story as
I did, namely: How come this
never happens, on-camera,
to my local TV reporters?
Until we get solid answers to
this and many other ques-
tions raised by this column, I
am urging everyone to avoid
all contact with nature in any
form, including vegetables.
Speaking of which, you
should also write your con-
gressperson.

Dave Barry is taking a
leave ofabsence from writing
his weekly humor column.
His classic columns appear in
the Wednesday edition of the
Venice Gondolier Sun.

It's a winter wonderland

Santa Claus makes an
appearance downtown to-
morrow at the annual Venice
MainStreet Christmas walk.
Venice Ave.. looks like a win-
ter wonderland, Florida style,
thanks to the new garland,
bows and lights courtesy of
the city and Venice
MainStreet. All the restau-
rants and stores want to show
you their holiday best so be
ready to shop, eat, drink and
be merry. Remember, the
walk is a red-and-green jingle
bell event. I'll see you there.
Shopping Venice Yacht
Club Style
Eighteen merchants from
Venice MainStreet and other
parts of Florida brought their
wares to the Venice Yacht
Club. It gave them a chance to
show off their holiday best.
Treasures in Time on Venice
Ave. brought snow. It is spec-
tacular and if you had your
eyes shut and felt it you would
think it was real. Be sure to
stop in and get some.
Yacht Club members and
friends purchased collapsible
Christmas trees, lavender oil
from France, books, beads
and delicious holiday snacks.
Kild Allan, Karen Aiello,
Rosanne Brown, Nancy Ewell
and Jean Pierre Bres showed
off new merchandise avail-
able atVenice and MiamiAve..
stores. A slightly 'used jacket
from LaCheape Boutique iri
the BrickYard Plaza pur-
chased at the mart made this
columnist happy.
After shopping the mer-
chants and shoppers enjoyed
a delicious buffet lunch.
Bravo Venice Yacht Club -
for showcasing Venice
MainStreet merchants.
More than a spot of tea
Three cheers to members
of the Catholic Council of
Women of Epiphany Cathe-
dral. Each year this group
plans an afternoon tea and
baby shower. Members bring
new gifts for the Pregnancy
Care of Venice.. Several long
tables overflowed with baby
clothes, stuffed animals and
lovely colorful blankets.
Eileen Kruszynski helped
showcase the gifts.
Henry Gibson, Nick Rohan
and Tom Hurleyu joined in
the fun and helped serve tea.
Lorre Doyle, president of the
CCW then presented Ruth
Maginnis, volunteer with Pr-
egnancy Care of Venice,
with a check for $300.
Everyone enjoyed deli-
cious pastries and most ladies
took a plateful home.
"Twas the Night Before
Christmas"
On Dec. 12 DebbieWilson
invites everyone to the Senior
Friendship Center at 11 a.m.
for a pajama party featuring
the fabulous Silver Foxes. The
party includes a visit from
Santa Claus. Remember to
wear your p.js. Call 584-0075.
One of our best
The special person of this
week is Lee Hamilton. This
nice lady runs the Burgee
Store and the Venice Yacht
Club. She also coordinates the
annual holiday mart for the
Club. Lee never wants her
photo taken or wants any
credit for the long volunteer
hours she provides. This
makes her like a lot of Santa's
helpers who like to stay
behind the scenes during this
season.
Lee Hamilton is one of the
Venice Yacht Club members
who help make Venice spe-
cial.
ni


Judy Donahoe, Ruth Maginnis and Cathy Cummings volun-

baskets available for auction at the Venice
United Church of Christ fundraiser.


Chairmen of the CCW tea and shower Ann Ballagh and
Marie Gibson smile at great success of the event. Everyone
enjoyed the food and bringing gifts for the Area
Pregnancy Care Center.
