Coleman stuns with sudden resignation


SUN PHOTO BY JEFF TAVARES, jtavares@venicegondolier.com
Venice High head football coach Nick Coleman at Powell-Davis Stadium Tuesday shortly after announcing that he won't be returning for
his ninth season as Indian mentor. Coleman was Class 5A Coach of the Year in 2000 when Venice won a state championship.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

During the stretch run of Nick Coleman's
worst season at Venice High, he repeatedly
denied rumors that he would be stepping
away from the.head coaching position.
"I'm not planning on going anywhere," he
told the Linebacker Club gatherings as the
losses mounted.
Despite finishing 1-8, Coleman was
determined to stick with the ship and turn it
around.
Then all of a sudden, a fork in the road
popped up in front of Coleman. He was pre-
sented with an opportunity to walk into a
management level position at a budding

The Sarasota County School Board decision came amid a
packed house meeting with many teachers in attendance.
The board also voted itself a raise, but declined to partici-
pate in a state-mandated merit pay plan for teachers.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County School Board
formally voted to keep its current
superintendent, Dr. Gary Norris,
Tuesday.
By a vote of 3-2, members Kathy
Kleinlein, Caroline Zucker and
Shirley Brown voted in the affirma-
tive, with Frank Kovach and Carol
Todd voting against renewing the
contract for all the same reasons
they expressed at last week's work
session.
The school district attorney will
next meet with Norris to negotiate a
three-year salary and benefits pack-
age, which the board is also
required to approve.
After listening to 30 members of
the public speak, mostly teachers in
opposition to Norris' renewal, the
board announced its decision.
One member of the public was
asked to take his sign of protest
("Fire Gary Norris") out on the side-
walk and away from The Landings.
Many said they felt lied to by the
superintendent for supporting the

March referendum, only to find
enrollment counts were down and
layoffs would be required.
After listening, Brown said she
heard many erroneous facts over
the past weeks, including the
impression that all teachers are
against Dr. Norris.
Brown said she expected higher
accountability from not only
Norris, but everyone in the schools,
and parents and students.
She defended Norris' decision to
delay reorganizing school budgets,
which ultimately led to over a hun-
dred laid off aides, because FCATs
would have been in full swing.
"It would have been disastrous
to pull kids out during FCATs,"
Brown said.
The board spent some time dis-
cussing the merits of renewing
Norris' contract for one year versus
three.
It tossed out language drafted by
the school's attorney (which
referred to a "vote of confidence")
and instead focused on a motion to
renegotiate with the superinten-
dent for a new contract.


Todd insisted on a one-year con-
tract, calling three years unreason-
able. After all, she argued, had they
voted on renewing Norris' contract
prior to his resignation, he would
have been offered a roll over of the
existing contract for only one year.
"I think its ludicrous to give the
superintendent a three-year con-
tract after throwing the district into
turmoil for three months," Todd
said.
But the majority saw it different-
ly.
Kleinlein and Brown were con-
cerned that agreeing to a one-year
contract would only delay the
process for another six months,
when they would again have to
begin looking at making the same
decision. It wasn't only the timing
that concerned the board. It had
the potential of placing the com-
munity through the same turmoil it
was trying to recover from.
Board raise OK'd
Sarasota County School Board
approved a raise for itself Tuesday.
The vote was 3-2, with Brown,
Todd and Kovach in favor.
The vote comes three weeks
after the school district instituted a
soft hiring freeze. The freeze came
after district officials learned they

Road widening


141 days late

BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

There's only disappointment for drivers
who thought they would soon be using the
new section of U.S. 41 by SunTrust Bank at
Laurel Road.
The east side of the road along the north-
ern stretch appears to be ready for paving.
But appearances can be deceiving.
"No, that's not going to happen until the
whole length is completed sometime in
March," said Bob Taraska, administrator for
consulting engineers Greenhome & Omara.
"With theholidays no paving will,be done
and there is still a lot of work to get done."
The contractor, Hubbard Construction of
Tampa, a national contractor, has requested
an additional 80 days extension of its two-
year contract. The project is currently 141
days behind schedule.
Starting later than planned, Hubbard ran
into a lot of delays caused by TECO, Verizon
and Sarasota County.
"The contractors have promised to add a
bunch of crews early in the NewYear to speed
things up," said Taraska.
He believes the company will add workers
to support the extension request because it
can now move faster. Hubbard was.held up
because the drainage contractors were
delayed, in turn delaying utilities work, which
has resulted in paving being slowed.
Taraska,said major obstacles arose with
the gas and water companies near Anita's
restaurant and a block north.

Hate crimes do

STAFF WRITER


Hate crimes are at the low-
est level in the state in nearly
a decade
Attorney General Charlie
Crist announced that report-
ed hate crimes in Florida fell
by more than 22 percent in
2005, to their lowest level
since 1997.
In the annual Hate Crimes

Monday, Crist said 2005 saw
260 reported hate crimes,
compared to 334 in 2004.

"Crist credited local and

The Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office had no report-

The data in the hate crimes

Council assures MHP residents


Fire Department promotions


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER

Martha Hysell was not sure
anyone at Venice city hall
would even read her letter, let
alone respond to it in any
way.
So she was pleasantly sur-
prised Monday morning to
hear from a reporter that her
letter was scheduled for dis-
cussion at Tuesday's city
council meeting.
"We had read in the paper
recently about the proposals
regarding development of the
airport property," said Hysell,
"and at least one of them
mentioned the mobile home
park as something they might
be interested in. That really
alarmed me. I didn't know
that was even a possibility. It's
really scary for many of us."
She and her husband, Jack,
who have been full-time resi-
dents of the Venice Mobile
Home Park for seven years,
had heard horror stories of
other mobile home parks in
southwest Florida being
bought out by developers to
build condominiums or
apartments. In most cases,
the residents had basically
been given short notice,
handed a couple of thousand
dollars and kicked out in the
name of progress.
"When we moved here
from Columbus, Ohio," said
Mrs. Hysell, "we had decided
this is where we want to stay
for the rest of our lives. We
love it here. I can't drive any
more because of a shoulder
injury, so we appreciate being
close to the hospital and doc-
tors, offices, stores, restau-
rants ... everything we need.

EXCERPTS FROM MARTHA HYSELL'S LETTER TO
THE CITY:
Dear Sirs:
When you pass by Venice Mobile Home Park, what do you see?
You do not see swimming pools, tennis courts, a golf course,
beautiful mobile homes with nice landscaping. You see only a
clean, neat community with a building (our club house), a laun-
dry building and a few old shuffleboard courts. But best of all,
you will see good, honest hardworking seniors; good citizens
who take pride in their park and the City of Venice.
Some of us arejust above poverty level. A few are actually at
poverty level. Some of us live here year round. It's our only
home. Some of us have outlived our life savings, so we live from
one monthly Social Security check to the next.
When our people here get in poor health and need more :a,re
than we can give each other (which happens to all of usi, we
must depend upon the sale of our mobile home to provide us
the money to move into an assisted living place, a nursing home,
or near family.
My question is: Are we going to be handed a couple thousand
dollars and kicked out of Venice Municipal Park in the name of
development progress? We have no peace of mind aboutlyour
plans for us.
We hope you are caring people who understand our situation.
Please consider us before making any plans to kick us out'of our
only homes. Please help us. Please respond. Thank you!


are good people," she con-
tinued. "All this has hurt
mahy of our friends who
have had to put their homes
up for sale. The value is real-
ly up in the air, and some
wonder if there is any point
in keeping their places fixed
.up.
"I don't know what we
would do if we had to move,"
she said. "We can't afford any-
thing else here in Venice,
that's true of about three-
quarters of the park residents.
We'd probably have to move
backup north.
"When I tried to read the
letter to my husband after
typing it," said Hysell, "I just
,started crying, I was so upset.
He had to finish reading it


himself."
Quick action

Hysell's impassioned letter
(see text above), directed last
week to "the decision making
group that determines the
development of Venice prop-
erties," found its way to the
desks of the city clerk, the city
manager, the mayor, and all
the other members of city
council.
Recently re-elected Coun-
cil Member John Simmonds
was particularly moved by the
letter when he received it, and
placed it on the agenda for
discussion at Tuesday's regu-
lar meeting of council.
"Unfortunately," said


Simmonds, "no one can
make an iron clad commit-
ment that the mobile home
park will never be sold. But I
understand their anxiety. I
have sympathy for those in
the park who may be at
poverty level and have this
situation hanging over their
heads. Is there any way
we can give them some
assurance?"
City Manager Marty Black
reminded council of a com-
mitment they had made sev-
eral months ago during their
strategic planning session.
"Council directed us to
research the possibilities of
eventually utilizing the mo-
bile home park area for
affordable housing," said
Black. "In addition, the state
of Florida is requiring that we
inventory all of our land

parcels by the end of 2007, for
the purpose of identifying
areas suitable for affordable
housing."
The combined effect of
those two directives would be
to limit the possibilities of
how the MHP area might ever
be changed.
In addition, it was pointed
out that the city can take no
unilateral action of any kind
regarding the airport proper-
ty because of the involvement
of the Federal Aviation
Administration and other
agencies. Council Member
Rick Tacy indicated that fact
alone should provide some
comfort to the MHP resi-
dents.
"The FAA is not looking
for a one-time chunk of
money (as might be offered
by a developer to purchase

the park)," he said. "They
want to the best long term
revenue source for the air-
port property. That would
work against putting up
condos or apartments with
less units than youi have
there now, because it would
reduce revenues."
The consensus of council
was that, though they are
required to look at the various
options which may be pro-
posed, there is no intent on their
part to make any changes to the
MHP in the short term. i
In the longer tern, as
the issue of affordable' hous-
ing becomes more clearly
defined, the residents would
be given opportunity for
input, plenty of advance
notice, and consideration
regarding the impact of any
future action.

Forecast: Nice today, stormy next summer?


BY ROBERT BOWDEN
STAFF WRITER

Next summer could prove
frightening.
Two forecasters predict an
above-average hurricane sea-
son, with one or two hurri-
canes striking the United
States.
The hurricane forecasts
came Thursday from an
English agency that provides
advanced forecasts for the
insurance industry and Fri-
day from Colorado State
University forecaster William
Gray.
Each sees the end of the
mild season we experienced
in the 2006 season that ended
Nov. 30. No hurricane struck
the U.S. and only two tropical
systems made weak landfalls
in Florida.
For next season, Gray pre-
dicts 14 named storms, with
seven becoming hurricanes.
He and fellow researcher
Philip Klotzbach believe there
is a good chance one of those
hurricanes will turn major,
with winds in excess of 111
mph.
Two years ago, it was
major Hurricane Charley that
wreaked havoc on Charlotte,
DeSoto and Hardee counties.
It was followed less than a
month later by powerful hur-
rcanes Frances and Jeanne,
each of which struck the
Florida east coast.
The next year brought
Katrina into the north gulf
coast. Later in 2005 a sea-
son with a record 28 named
storms Wilma hit South
Florida in a sparsely populat-
ed area south of Naples.-
Katrina became the great-
est natural disaster in U.S. his-
tory.
Both the 2004 and 2005
seasons had above-average
activity and Gray said they are
part of a cycle of increased
S activity that could continue
until 2025.
His forecast for this year's
abysmal season was way off.
He and Klotzbach said an
unexpected warming of Pac-
ific waters off South America,
plus unexpected sandstorm
activity blowing off the Afri-
can coast, combined to quash
storm formation.
There were only nine
named storms in 2006.
Trading winds
.The English forecasting
group, operating under the
name Tropical Storm Risk,
predicts 16 named tropical
systems next season, with
nine hurricanes and four
intense hurricanes. They fore-
see two striking the United
States.
Only two forecasters cor-
rectly predicted this year's
dull season. Neither has yet
issued a forecast for the 2007
season.
Both Gray and the TSR
group say today's warm Paci-
fic waters, called an El Nifio,
will diminish before the 2007
season begins on June 1. El
Nifno conditions cause upper
level westerly winds that blow
the tops off developing
Atlantic storms.
The contrary condition,
called La Nifia, signals in-
creased storm activity as east-
erly trade winds ease devel-
opment of storms and move-
ment toward the United
States.
Klotzbach cautioned that
the prediction on the El Nifio
failing "is an.early prediction."
He and Gray routinely fudge
their predictions with up-
dates during the storm sea-
son.
Red flag
Until tropical air returns,
fire -dangers will escalate.
Parts of Florida were placed
under "red flag" warnings for
extreme fire danger on Friday.

The low humidity accompa-
nying the cold air will dry out
woods, and gusty winds fore-
cast for today would spread
fire quickly, the Florida
Division of Forestry advises.
A lack of rainfall to date is
making the forest fire threat


even more serious.
The Southwest FloridaWa-
ter Management District, bet-
ter known as Swiftmud, re-
ported Friday that this area is
running more than a 10-inch
rainfall deficit.
Some 50.57 inches of rain


historically fall between Jan-
uary and November each
year in this area. This year,
only 39.85 inches have been
reported at the Swiftmud
weather station.
The lack of rain is having
an impact on aquifer levels,


as well. Aquifers are under-
ground storage areas where
absorbed rainwater moves
through the state. Aquifers
supply 80 percent of the
water used by residents and
agriculture in South Florida.
Swiftmud reported the


Floridan aquifer level at 0.36
feet this past week. Last year
at this time, it was 4.53 feet.
The level fell a third of a foot
this past week alone.

Hubbard Construction of Tampa, a national contractor has requested an additional 80 days
extension of its two-year contract to complete the widening of U.S. 41 from Laurel Road to U.S.
41 and U.S. 41 Bypass.


ROAD from page1lA
Transferring traffic to the
west lanes cannot take place
until the whole section is
paved and completed.
This includes the bridges
over Dona Bay and Shakett
Creek, which appear to be
some weeks from comple-


tion.
"I believe Hubbard is now
making progress, and certain-
ly some peppiness with addi-
tional crews working on the
project would be a welcome
sign," said Taraska.
The 650-day project,
which entails the total recon-
struction of U.S. 41 in


Nokomis, began the first
week of January 2006, when
construction crews tore up
the median at the Albee Road
intersection.
When completed, U.S. 41
in the area will be a six-lane
road with 8-foot sidewalks,
new signals and drainage
improvements.

again overprojected student
enrollment. Because the state
fronts a large portion of its
funds, the district will have to
pay back more than $2 mil-
lion.
Last year the district was
required to return $5.6 mil-
lion, which triggered school
reorganizations districtwide.
Last month the school
board advertised a nearly
$3,000 increase to $36,930
recommended by the Florida
School Boards Association.
School board salaries were
based on a state pay scale
until 2002, when lawmakers
gave school boards the re-
sponsibility of setting their
own.
FSBA stepped in to provide
member boards with a rec-
ommended increase equiva-
lent to continuing the old
state formula.
No STAR bonuses
In a surprise move, the
board voted down a staff pro-
posal to make the county eli-
gible for state STAR perfor-
mance pay bonuses for the
top 25 percent of its teachers.
The plan was developed by


"I find it offensive that the program identifies
(only) 25 percent. (It's like) saying 75 percent of
our teaching staff are not deserving. We need to
make a statement that the state made a mistake
(with this program)."
Sarasota County School Board
member Carol Todd commenting


a districtwide committee of
teachers, school administra-
tors and central office staff
and Sarasota Classified/
Teaches Association leaders.
The vote could mean a
double whammy financially.
The Sarasota County School
District will give up a guaran-
teed $2.3 million this year,
and millions more in coming
years.
Worse, even though the
district decided not to partici-
pate, the state is considering
penalizing those that don't
buy into its merit pay pro-


on the STAR performance
pay bonuses for the top
25 percent of teachers
in the county



gram by withholding state
lottery funds beginning next
year.
Those funds totaled slight-
ly less than $2 million for
Sarasota County this year.
"I find it offensive that the
program identifies (only) 25
percent," said Todd. "(It's like)
saying 75 percent of our
teaching staff are not deserv-
ing. We need to make a state-
ment that the state, made a
mistake (with this program)."

ponents that go into the con-
struction of residential and
commercial structures.
Coleman will leave VHS on
Jan. 2 and take on his new
responsibilities in the busi-
ness world shortly thereafter.
"It's just time for me to go
in a different direction," said
Coleman, who was FHSAA
Class 5A Coach of the Year in
2000, guiding the Indians to a
perfect 15-0 record and a
state championship. "Every
school goes through, peaks
and valleys. You're not gonna
be on top every season. I was
planning on sticking around
and seeing it through."
But then the employment
opportunity with NBT
popped up.







.4O


Coleman was childhood
buddies with Frank Peacock.
They played Pop Warner and
high school football. Peacock
went on to become chief
financial officer at NBT. After
,being an assistant coach at
Port Charlotte High, Coleman
eventually landed at VHS.
The two got to talking
turkey.
"It was extremely recent,"
said Peacock, whose younger
brother John is an assistant
grid coach atVHS. "There was
no long-term scheme. I think
he was ready for a change and
he made himself available.
The timing was right on both
sides. Nick has tremendous
leadership and organization-
al skills.


"We're excited about hav-
ing him."
Player and coach
Coleman played line-
backer at Venice High under
the legendary Jim Powell,
who is in the Venice Sports
Hall of Fame.
"He was like a father to me.
We all need a coach Powell,"
Coleman said.
Coleman did his best to
keep the Powell legacy alive
and well at Venice High.
Coleman called on Powell to
be an assistant and advisor
during his regime.
Coleman came back to
VHS in 1998 as an assistant
under Andy Siegal.
Siegal was booted for disci-


plinary reasons and Coleman
was hired as head coach for
the 1999 season. In his first
year, the Indians finished 6-5
and made the region playoffs
for the first time in more than
a decade.
The next year put Coleman
on the map. Powered by
super running backs Tre
Smith and Ardell Daniels,
Venice capped a perfect sea-
son by routing Palm Beach
, Gardens-Dwyer 77-14 in the
state championship game at
the University of Florida's
"Swamp."
Venice set state records for
most points and widest mar-
gin of victory (63).
After a down year in 2001,
Venice posted back-to-back


nine-win seasons.
The Indians made the state
semifinals in 2003' and the
region final in 2004.
Venice made the region
playoffs in 2005 and knocked
off unbeaten Fort Myers in
the first round before losing
in the semifinals.
There wasn't much to get
excited about this year.
A very tough schedule
combined with a lean roster
resulted in the uncharacteris-
tic 1-8 record.
Through his eight years at
VHS, Coleman has sent
dozens of players off to col-
lege ball.
"This is a sad day for me,"
Coleman said.. "I'll always
miss the kids."


His replacement?
Venice High athletics di-
rector Larry Sandburg is now
suddenly thrust into the very
important task of finding a
new, qualified head varsity
coach for the program.
"We'll hire the best candi-
date available," he said.
"We'll look inside first.
We'll advertise it. It will be on
the FHSAA Web site and in
the papers. Our target date is
Feb. 1."
There no doubt will be a lot
of folks interviewing.
Assistants Peacock, Jeremy
Brown and Larry Shannon
would all be worthy candi-
dates.
There are dozens of others
waiting to make their pitch.

County studying sites for major employment centers


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County govern-
ment sponsored a meeting at
the Venice Community Cen-
ter to begin the public phase
of its major employment cen-
ter study.
MECs are planned or exist-
ing concentrations of indus-
trial, manufacturing, whole-
sale and office employment in
Sarasota County identified in
the county's future land use
plan to promote economic
development. Major employ-
ment centers are generally
more than 100 acres in size
and are typically located near
major transportation routes
with convenient access for
the working population.
The purpose of the meet-
ing was to gather suggestions
and comments from the pub-
lic about the locations of such
centers, the best mix of uses
within them and the types of
employers the county might
want to attract to them over
the next few decades.
The meeting began with a
presentation by Tom Lavash
and Aaron Smith of Econom-
ics Research Associates in
Washington, D.C. It focused
on where most centers tend
to be located and which
demographic trends deter-
mine their existence.
"You're not alone," Lavash
told the crowd. "Every jtris-
diction in the country wants
to be a location for high-tech,
for bio-tech, for medical
tech."
He added that a researcher,
such as himself, would like to
see more educational institu-
tions in the area that would
train a job force to lure those
industries here.
Critical
Lavash and Smith pointed
out that many of the county's
largest employers are public
institutions and hospitals.
Smith said that the perform-
ing arts and spectator sports
were two other draws to the
area that offer a superior
opportunity for job-related
growth.
"That's clearly a driver for
residential growth, which is
driving some other job cre-
ation, but it's a key compo-
nent in quality of life here,"
Smith said.
Construction, health ser-
vices and administration ser-
vices also scored high in their
research as industries with
growth potential that might
inspire local centers, he
added.
The county's future land
use plan identifies 14 major
employment center sites cur-
rently. Most of them are situ-
ated in the northern section
of the county.
This fact raised a lot of-
vocal concern among many
attendees at the meeting, who
split up into two breakout
groups after the presentation
to discuss ramifications of
the study. Traffic congestion
throughout the county will
only increase, they said,
as workers who settle in the
more affordable .southern
sections of the county will
snarl Interstate 75 and
U.S. 41.
"That's one reason why it is
absolutely critical to diversify
the job base in the county,"
Lavash said. That way people
can live closer to their jobs, he
added.
Collaboration needed
"You c n't talk about (cen-
ter) land use without talking


about residential and all of
these other issues in the com-
munity, such as affordable
housing," said Kathy Baylis,
president of the Economic
Development Corporation of
Sarasota County and an
attendee at the meeting. She
spoke on behalf of her break-


out group.
"We really need more col-
laboration with the cities and
also the adjacent counties" in
order to determine the best
locations for future centers,
Baylis added. "We need to
make sure we're balancing
employment with population


growth."
Baylis said her group
thinks there ought to be dif-
ferent types of employment
centers to reflect the commu-
nity's needs. One good poten-
tial site might be on River
Road, near 1-75, she added.
Her group cited Route 681 as


another good site since pro-
jected road cuts linking it
with Honore Avenue will
make that a possibility, along
with a hoped-for Central
Sarasota Parkway Inter-
change.
The study is being con-
ducted by EDAW Inc., an


Atlanta-based consultant
hired by the county this sum-
mer. The study is expected to
take 10 months with comple-
tion in July 2007.

OUR VIEW





Willing sellers are still making deals


In the summer of 2005 before the
October real estate crash the house-buying
game was simple.
A family would track down a house, walk
through it, count the bedrooms and make
sure the family cars fit in the garage. They
would sign a contract for the asking price,
. visit the bank, go to closing, move in their fur-
niture and be grateful they had a roof over
their heads.
Things are far more complicated now.
Hundreds of homes are available. Prices are
lower. One can feel a bit dizzy with so many
choices.
Individuals (investors and builders)
adding to already fat bank accounts in 2004
and p005 are struggling in 2006. Most are try-
ing to reduce their inventory.
We talked to the salesman for a new home
builder. A wealthy investor signed up for 20
homes before the October 2005 market col-


lapse. The builder says the man is now trying
to unload all 20 houses to avoid paying insur-
ance and taxes. The builder is caught because
those homes are selling below his 2006 costs.
A well-known builder told us he was
thrilled to be asked to start building a new
home in the area. He expects to have it fin-
ished by spring. It keeps his crew busy.
Buyers can negotiate thousands off the
price and also get $5,000 or $10,000 in free
upgrades from builders with "spec" homes on
a 80-by-120-foot lot. Some builders delay fin-
ishing off their unsold houses so they can
avoid paying taxes on the full value of the
empty property.
Yet some would-be sellers of older homes
will not accept the fact the market is upside
down. They saw their friends and neighbors
line their pockets with outrageous.profits last
year. It upsets them to think they waited too
long and those big buck days are over.


Some grow angry with their Realtor when
advised to drop their price substantially. A
few fire their salesman and put up "For sale
by owner" signs. Then they wonder why
months go buy without an offer.
In the past two months we found that large
numbers of homes have been on the market
for months. Make an offer in line with what
others are selling homes for and owners
appear to offended and instantly reject the
offer. A good Realtor would reason with them.
"If you've dropped the price on your home
by $100,000, you don't want to be told by a
buyer you have to drop it $25,000 more," one
veteran Realtor explained.
Had the owners bothered to do a little
research, they would understand why a buyer
won't spend more than the price of a new
home for a used one.
One small house on 'the water in North.
Port is located at an unusually fine location. A


builder said it would cost would $10,000 or
$11,000 to tear it down. But then the buyer
would have to wait 10 months or longer for a
replacement to be built.
The owner rejected an offer that was
below his current listing price. He decided
to spend thousands to renovate both bath-
rooms and the kitchen. But even then the
house will have just two bedrooms, and a
dated exterior. The owner could lose more
money in the process.
What did we learn in our research?
Sellers should put much of their stuff in
storage. Make the bed. Wash the dishes.
Take your dog to a kennel. Check builders'
prices for new spec homes. Don't be greedy.
If you need to sell, drop the price until it is
almost painful.
Making $30,000 isn't as much as your
neighbor's 2005 windfall. But $30,000 is still a
profit.

News that Dr. Gary Norris
has decided to stay as super-
intendent of schools has a lot,
of upsides to it,-and at least
one of them affects Venice
directly.
First, it is good to have the
architect of a plan around to
implement it as long as he
improves on his implementa-
tion skills. We likely would
have been set back some if he
had not decided to stay.
Part of the challenge that
people have with Gary is
something that is a good trait.
He doesn't want to talk too
much about something he
wants action.
Yet people like being a part
of the solution, and he has
not done a good job of that.
But his get-it-done philos-
ophy has a good side.
When Venice High was
found to be deficient in its sci-
ence labs to the point it was
going to affect its accredita-
tion, he stepped in. He put
together a group to come up
with an immediate fix and
then went about looking at
the long-term problem,
which is the age of Venice
High and its need for a major
overhaul. Work was already in
place to fix the music suite,
which was also deficient.,
, The result was spending of
$6 million to do the music
suite, science lab improve-
ments, new parking, land-
scaping, signs, carpeting and
painting all over the campus.
It lifted greatly the morale of
all who use the facility.
Dr. Norris knows his short-
comings, and we hope he and
the board put in place things
to correct them.
I haven't seen the board
recognizing its shortcomings
but that list, and corrections,
should also be made.

Iraq is giving chaos a bad

Two walls are up at the new

"Green side up" is how sod
layers are instructed to lay
down sod. In the saga of my
property being water ready,
we finally got sod, and a water
meter. Of course, the sod was
laid over the sprinklers, so
., none of them worked.
In fact, as I went to try to
find them we found one was
buried 6 inches underground.
I have made three trips since
to fix sprinklers.
The real good news is that
the project is done with my
house being the last one. So
half of Bay Pointe in Nokomis
is getting tested by the county
with the hope of having per-
mission to hook up around
the first of the year. The other
part of Bay Pointe is being
handled by another contrac-'
tor.

Venice made the national
news in the Airline Owners
and Pilot Association
newsletter for the opening of
our airport's rehabilitated
runway. The story talked
about the new good relation-
ship between the city and
FAA.
Thanks to City Manager
Marty Black and CityAttorney
Bob Anderson recognizing
the need to mend fences and
right some wrongs, we are
now likely to be able to get
more done.

ment and the other for its red

not! How funny and sad is
that?

LETTERS FROM OR READERS


Everyone's rights protected by ACLU


EDITOR:
I find it deeply troubling that our current Congressman-
elect Vern Buchanan considers the American Civil Liberties
Union an "extreme element."
SI doubt that he meant that in the sense that Barry Goldwater
"I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is
no vice! And let me remind you also that moderation in the
pursuit of justice is no virtue" meant it.
And before someone accuses me of being a liberal (I am), let
me remind you, Barry Goldwater is considered by many to
have been the ultimate conservative.
The American Civil Liberties Union is dedicated to defend-
ing our freedoms. It does take up some unpopular causes -
the right of neo-Nazis to march through a Jewish neighbor-
hood springs to mind. However, unless you defend the rights of
unpopular causes, all of our rights are in danger.
I find it troubling that a man who does not understand this
may have been elected to Congress. I had hoped our president
was a mistake that would not be repeated.

Accept the resignation
EDITOR:
Why? Why would this
board of education be willing
to ask Superintendent Norris
to reconsider his resignation?
He was very clear explaining
why he was leaving.
I can think of several reasons
why Norris might have changed
his mind. He made his decision
in a fit of anger (not a good sign
for some one in that position). It
is a little tough out there in the
job market. He is playing hard to
get.That would put the board at
his mercy.
I believe the board should
let his resignation stand and
look for a new superinten-
dent within our own system.
There are many fine people
now working in the school


system. The last superinten-
dent did a wonderful job, and
she came from the system.
If this board does not fol-
low through with his resigna-
tion, they should all resign.

1. Valuable items lying around in your
home are subject to theft and being
forgotten about in trying to hide them.
2. Valuable items stored in safety
deposit boxes are assets not put to
working potential and add confusion
and problems to your heirs.
3. Jewelry should be properly
appraised every two years and
scheduled on your insurance policy
separately. Insurance premiums can
be very costly and failure to carry
insurance can result in complete loss
of asset due to theft or disappearance.
4. Our lifestyles have changed from
wearing large ostentatious formal
jewelry to more comfortable, day-to-
day conservative & less conspicuous,
especially when traveling.
5. Cash obtained from the sale of
jewelry, diamonds, etc. could be
a beneficial and worthy gift when
distributed to grandchildren in one of
several tax free education programs
which benefit all parties.
6. Last but not least, the time to sell is
now when the demand is great. Grant's

SRose's goal the difference for Ladies


CAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR



So, who's


next?

For decades, Venice High
football basked under the
growl of legendary coach Jim
Powell. Then in the '90s came
the lean years with Mike Lay
and Ron Colangelo.
Andy Siegal started pump-
ing the program back up
again in the late '90s.
Nick Coleman took the
Indians to the next level, win-
ning a championship in 2000
and turning the Indians into a
state power.
One bad year, and Cole-
man's gone.
Who will be the next chap-
ter in the storied book ofVHS
football?
It's easy to point at the cur-
rent assistants. We know
some might be interested, but
we don't know who yet.
How about former assis-
tants like Mike Bartlett or Eli
Rasheed?
There must be other
coaches in the area looking
for a better position. Venice
has a great facility, fan base
and community support.
With revived talk about the
proposed weight room, the
Venice job looks quite attrac-
tive.
SThe job will be posted on
FHSAA.com. Perhaps there's
an out-of-state genius looking
to give it a go in Florida.
Athletics director Larry
Sandburg said he will be look-
ing for candidates immedi-
ately. He said he wants a new
coach in place by Feb. 1.
The FHSAA's redistricting
project will be done by then.
Venice can then put together
a new schedule. Hopefully,
one that's not as tough as the
past couple of years.
The next month and a half
should be mighty interesting.
.6 6
We wonder if any of the
Venice assistants are going for
the North Port opening. We
heard a rumor about one, but
it is unconfirmed at this time.
The only coach in its histo-
ry- Mike Steele stepped
down a few weeks ago.
North Port is one of the
fastest growing schools in the
state.
* *
The 5A final was a memo-
rable one with Lakeland win-
ning in double overtime over
St. Thomas Aquinas.
The 2A final was even more
crazy with Bolles beating
Clewiston in three overtimes.
SThe other state champions
included Glades Day (1A),
FAMU (1B), Pahokee (2B),
Glades Central (3A), Tampa-
Plant (4A) and Miami-North-
west (6A).

Two former Venice High
football players will be mak-
ing the trips to bowl games.
Gerald Tate and Troy will
face Rice in the New Orleans
Bowl Dec. 22. The 8 p.m.
game will be shown by ESPN

Venice girls soccer team edges
visiting North Port 1-0 to improve
record to 7-2-2.


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


One can be enough, but it
certainly doesn't leave any
room for error.
The Venice High girls soc-
cer team peppered North Port
keeper Rebecca Hardin with
23 shots Tuesday night.
Only one got by her. That
was enough, as the Lady
Indians settled for a 1-0 deci-
sion over the Lady Bobcats at
Powell-Davis Stadium.
Venice improved to 7-2-2,
while North Port fell to 3-7.
Venice can thank Chelsea
Rose for the "W," as she
scored the lone goal 18 min-
utes in. She faked out two
defenders to free herself and
then hit a 20-yard beauty with
her left foot. It got over
Hardin. Rose now has six
goals on the season.
The second half saw the
Lady Indians dominate play,
but Hardin was equal to the
task. Andria Thomas had a


couple of quality opportuni-
ties snuffed out by Hardin.
Bobcat sweeper Heather
Carboy also had a huge
match.
"We had plenty of oppor-
tunities, but we weren't in the
right place at the right time,"
said Venice coach Sheldon
Chamberlain. "Our shot se-
lection needs to improve.
Their keeper and No. 12
(Carboy) saved them."
Venice won 4-1 back in
November in North Port.
The Venice junior varsity
had a much easier time
against North Port, winning
6-0. The TVs are now 8-2-1.
There were six different goal
scorers Allison Lewis,
Morgan Leopard, Colleen
Murphy, Casey Martin, Emily
Talcott and Amanda Pierce.
Samantha Holroyd was
superb at stopper.
The Venice teams are
home again Wednesday night
as St. Pete Catholic comes to
town.

Foubister a bright spot at Captain Archer


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


SUN PHOTO BY CLAUDE LEWIS
Jim Foubister lines up for
introductions before his 215-
pound final at the Captain
Archer Tournament in Punta
Gorda.


It was a great day for guys
like Jim Foubister, Tyler
Spann and Brian Radtke.
Thanks to three guys not
making weight, it was a mis-
erable day for Venice High
r\\estling cbaihDar Kelly. :
It all added up to Venice
placing 13th out of 16 teams
at Saturday's Captain Archer
Memorial Tournament at
Charlotte.
With Wade Consul, Doug
Little and Will Molthop in the
lineup, Kelly figured the
Indians would have at least
finished in the top half in
team points.
The three disappointed
their coach and let down the
team by not making weight.
Naples-Palmetto Ridge
won the team title with 226
points. Venice only could
accumulate 55.
Picking up a bunch of


those was Foubister, who
gained 215-pound gold.
"Fouby" went out in style,
pinning Joe Ruger of Naples-
Gulf Coast in 1 minute, 50
seconds of their final.
Foubister went 3-0 on the
day to improve his personal
record to 9-1. In his first bout,
he recorded a technical fall
over Nick Lester of North Fort
Myers.
In his semifinal, Foubister
decisioned Charlotte's Roger
Gregush, 6-2.
Spann placed fourth at 135
pounds. He was 2-2 on the
day to move his record to 8-4.
Spann won his first two bouts
to advance to the semifinals.
He was on the wrong end of a
12-6 score in the semifinals
and then was pinned in the
consolation round.
Radtke lost his first round
bout via fall, but rebounded
with three wins to take fifth at
152 pounds. He won his first
by default and then rolled out


two pins. Radtke improved
his record to 7-3.
Venice failed to have any
other wrestler win a bout.
Andrew Lopez was 0-2 at
112. Joe Angelicci was 0-2 at
145. Andrew Saputo was 0-2
at 160. Seth Goodley was 0-1
at 171. Ted Stahara was 0-2 at
275.,
Venice missed Consul (4-1)
at 119, Little (2-2) at 130 and
Molthop (2-2) at 140.- ..-
Venice will be at the North
Port Duals this Saturday.
Action begins at 10 a.m. Other
schools include North Port,
Port Charlotte, South Fort
Myers and Naples-Gulf Coast.

Coleman's resignation letter complimentary


EDITOR'S NOTE: The resignation letter Nick
Coleman read at a press conference at Venice
High Tuesday morning:
"It is with mixed feelings that I
announce my resignation as head coach
of Venice High School football. I will be
leaving the education field to pursue a
career in the private sector.
"The support I have received while
head coach has been awesome. The fac-
ulty and administration have worked
hard to give the coaching staff and play-
ers the opportunity to achieve great
;goals.
"As I look back over the years, I take
with me great memories. In '99 when we
'were district champs, the momentum
started for our undefeated state champi-
,onship year. That experience has to be
:the ultimate in any coach's career. The
:Swamp is forever in my mind; the game,
fthe players, the stands covered with
:green and white and the victory itself. '02
iand '03 were special years of coaching
with hard-working, tough, hard-nosed


players facing challenging schedules. In
'05, when we reached the playoffs by the
skin of our teeth and played a state-
ranked team; it was incredible.
Every year, the memories are there of
special moments and sacrifices made by
players and coaches to put up the 'W
The players and their families have
touched my life forever.
To the players throughout the years,
thank you.
I have been blessed to work with
many great assistant coaches down
throughout the years. They have made a
huge impact on the program. The assis-
tants have always been in the'business
for the right reason: to make a difference
for the players. I appreciate all the per-
sonal time they give to the program and
the leadership they provide.
"There is not another school in the
state of Florida that is better looked after
by equipment managers than ours. Their
dedication and professionalism is sec-
ond to none.
"Though it is not necessary to men-


tion everyone by name, I would be
remiss not to give tribute to my mentor.
My career owes a huge debt to Jim
Powell. He has been motivational and
inspirational to me throughout the
years. His name is on the stadium for a
reason and I am forever grateful to him.
"Football is more than what happens
on the field. Every time we take the field
for a game, there have been countless
hours of preparation by the parents,
players, boosters, cheerleaders, auxiliary
members and the band. To all of them;
thank you.
"Our program has also been support-
ed by many service groups in the com-
munity, led by the incredible Touchdown
Club. Thanks to them, we have been
able to generate funds to provide a first-
class program. Venice is all about com-
munity and to all I give my thanks.
"Venice High football is centered on
'Tradition, Pride and Loyalty.' We have
always been able to 'Believe.' I will now
offer my support to the program as a
community member. Go Indians!"

IQA VENIlUCE GONDOLIER 3UIN



LET 'EM HAVE IT! SHOULD VENICE CONSIDER MOVING THE AIRPORT OUT OF THE CITY LIMITS? CALL US AT 207-1111.


Please don't keep on trucking in South Venice


Wake-up call. Our neigh-
bor works for a towing com-
pany. He drives a diesel tow
truck and several nights a
week he has several calls a
night, waking at least most of
the people on three streets
when he leaves and returns.
One of our neighbors has
called the county for two-
and-one-half years and noth-
ing gets done. It's like living in
a rest area on the highway.
This is a good deal for him. He
can sleep between calls and
he works a day job. The rest of
us are paying too high a price.
We live in South Venice and
thought this was against the
law in a residential neighbor-
hood. Is this going on else-
where in the county? Bad
business. How can you keep
your license this way?
Unsanitary. I'm calling to
answer the question in
today's paper about allowing
dogs in restaurants, and that
is a capital "N," capital "O,"
and that's NO! Dogs don't
belong where people eat.
That's unsanitary. A number
of questions come to mind
about this issue. Will the own-,
ers put a diaper on the dog?
Will they muzzle them to
keep them from barking or
biting? I realize all dog owners
claim their dog doesn't bite,
but it is an animal, it does
have teeth, it is possible the
dog will bite. Will there be a


limit to the size of the animal
allowed in? Some dogs are
taller than the height of the
table. Will cats be allowed?
Will other types of pets be
allowed? While understand-
ing an owner's love of their
pet, enough is enough
already. To sum up, if the
restaurants allow dogs, we
will not go to eat there. If we
want to eat with dogs, we'll go
to a kennel.
Dogs OK. I think dogs
should be allowed on Venice
Avenue.
Status reports. I am a sub-
scriber to the Gondolier Sun,
and I wish the paper would
have a reporter or one person
who is specifically responsi-
ble for giving us an up-to-
date picture of what is really
going on in Venice today
about the possible expansion
of buildings, facilities, and
what have you, in the airport,
marinas, hotels and every-
thing. Everything I read is bits
and pieces, and I believe that
it would be nice to have, from
time to time, a status report. I
was in banking, and we called
this kind of thing a status
report telling us exactly what
is the situation of requests
and permits and problems,
possibilities, etc. Something
that a reasonable person like
myself could really under-
stand what is going on. I read
about possibilities and con-


flicts. We don't know what city
hall would agree to etc. You
would have one person
whose job it is, from time to
time, to write a comprehen-
sive status report on all these
possibilities for Venice.
Sick and tired. I just got
through listening to the 11
o'clock news on Wednesday,
and I'm getting sick and tired
of Christine Jennings com-
plaining and crying that she
didn't win. She made so many
phone calls and harassed so
many of us on the no-call list.
Buchanan made maybe two
calls compared to her 15.
Never a night at supper time
that we didn't get a message
or a phone call from her. She
just lost. People got tired of
them telling dirty stories back
and forth, and they just didn't
vote for either one. But she
lost, fair and square. There's
nothing wrong with the
machines. It's Buchanan
that's in.
Working dogs only. I don't
think anybody has to think
twice about what's 'up with
the pups. That people bring
their dogs everywhere with
them is getting to be a little
much. However, I believe that
only seeing-eye dogs, sight-
assisting dogs, should be
allowed into establishments
where food is served, whether
it's indoors or outdoors. That's
my opinion.


No dogs. I'm calling about
the presence of dogs in
restaurants. My feeling is they
should be restricted.
Salute. I was thrilled to
read that someone has come
.up with a plan to save the
Venice Arena: When the cir-
cus left town, it was a sad day
for all of us. I salute the man
of vision who is willing and
able to restore the building
and the circus history.
Bad decision. Shame on
the Marine Corps' Toys for
Tots program for not accept-
ing religious dolls for its
Christmas giveaway. I think
it's ridiculous. It's a Christmas
giveaway, so it should accept
religious items.
EDITOR'S NOTE:The program
is now accepting religious-themed
toys to donate to families of
matching faiths.
Killer road. I would like to
comment about the article
about the children who were
killed in an accident on River
Road at Venice Avenue. I
believe the road is dangerous.
There are no lights on River
Road. It is very dark I talked
with someone at the road
commission and they said
they would look into it. Now
someone writes in about the
children not having seat belts
on. I agree that is wrong, but I
believe the road commission
should go out and look at
these roads at night and see


how dangerous they are. Also,
Center Road has so many of
those barrels, it is so danger-
ous to drive that we are stay-
ing off these roads. We will go
to North Port rather than
Venice because the'shopping
is just as good in North Port
and it's just as close. I will not
drive on these dangerous
roads in Venice. I believe
these roads are just accidents
waiting for someone else to
get killed. There were people
last year killed on River Road
and this year too.
Who's In charge? Please
write some articles on who's
in charge of road construc-
tion and making sure it's done
in a timely fashion. Again and
again, I read in columns and
letters to the editor com-
plaints from local citizens and
business owners about the
slow construction. The paper,
however, never does an inves-
tigative report to address the
concerns of the citizens. Time
and again we read that people
who move here from else-
where recognize that this is
not a normal way to do road


work, that it goes unchal-
lenged by the establishment
while people are hurt and
even killed in road accidents.
Property is damaged and,
businesses suffer. Let's take
control of our roads and
demand that the work be
done in a short amount of
time and that penalties be
assessed for missing the
mark. Other counties do it,
why not us? We have a lot of
road construction ahead of
us. We know they can't blame
weather for construction
delays this year.
Boiling. Mary Kay Ruppel
has my blood boiling before I
even had my coffee this
morning. She already knows
that your readers don't want
anymore of her liberal bash-
ing. When is the Gondolier
Sun going to get rid of her col-
umn?
EDITOR'S NOTE: We invited
Mary Kay Ruppel to write a col-
umn after readers complained we
had a liberal bias.
Do it. I am in favor of fixing
up the circus arena with no
charge to the taxpayers.

New reps urge opposition to drilling bill


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

Several area congressmen-
elect urged the U.S. House to'
reject a bill to open a large
area of the eastern Gulf of
Mexico to oil and gas drilling.
Those voices of opposi-
tion, which include three
Democrats and one
Republican, are coming just
as the U.S. House began jock-
eying to pass the bill before
the lame-duck Congress
adjourned at the end of last
week.
The bill would open 8.3
million acres to oil and gas
drilling in an area 234 miles
west of Tampa.
The race is on because
supporters of the bill recog-
nize that the recent election,
which swept Democrats to a
majority in Congress, promis-
es to bring a changing tide for
the oil drilling industry, said
Mark Ferrulo, a legislative
director for Environment
Florida, a nonprofit lobby
organization.
"This is kind of the last-
gasp opportunity to give Big
Oil a big presence before this
current leadership hands the
reins over to a new Congress
that we think is going to be
more favorable to alternative,
renewable energy," he said.
'Short-sighted'
The members-elect urging
the opposition include Dem-
ocrats Tim Mahoney of
Venus, Ron Klein of Boca
Raton and Kathy Castor of
Tampa and Republican Vern
Buchanan of Sarasota.
The three Democrats
signed a joint statement call-
ing for Congress "to resist the
last-minute passage of this
legislation."
All three, during their cam-
paigns, also called for the
nation to do more to develop
altirnative! fuels such as
biodiesel 'fd:'ethanol.;"'."'--"r
--M. ...Mahrney, _for example,
often recalled being im-
pressed by an entrepreneur
he knows who is turning cit-
rus pulp into fuel.
Buchanan, in a separate
statement, called the propos-
al to expand the drilling after
dozens of years of moratori-
ums "short-sighted."
"We need to protect the
coast for our enjoyment
today and for future genera-
tions while implementing a
balanced energy plan that
promotes conservation and
the development of alterna-
tive fuels to help reduce our
reliance on foreign oil and
meet our nation's energy
needs," he said.
The United States con-
sumes 7.5 billion barrels of oil
and 21.9 trillion cubic feet of
natural gas per year. The pro-
posed drilling area would
produce only enough to fuel
Florida for two years, the
three Democrats said.,
"Such (drilling) actions will
have no effect on either the
cost of gas or on the future of
our energy needs," said
Mahoney, Klein and Castor.
Threat
The Democrats and Bu-
chanan called for Congress,
particularly Florida mem-
bers, to mend a rift over the
bill and voice unified opposi-
tion.
The rift opened within the
past year, after a spike in oil
prices. That put pressure on
Congress to expand domestic
drilling.
"It is time for us to come
together as Floridians and
Americans toward a real
investment in solving our
energy crisis," said Mahoney,
Klein and Castor.
The Republican leadership
in Congress abruptly pulled
the bill from floor action. The
move came after it became
clear the legislation lacked
the two-thirds majority need-
ed for passage.
A two-thirds majority was
required because the bill was
filed under a rule that allows


sponsors to prohibit amend-
ments.
Now, GOP leaders plan to
revive the bill in a way that
only a majority vote is


required, or attach it to
another bill.
"We have precious little
time left," said Sen. Mary
Landrieu, D-La., in a state-
ment, adding she remained
hopeful the legislation can be
taken up soon.


Last summer, the House
passed a version that would
'have opened much larger
areas to drilling along the
Gulf, Atlantic and Pacific
coasts.
The Senate, however,
passed a version that would


open only the 8 million-acre
area in the Gulf. The area is
located 125 miles south of the
Panhandle and 234 miles
west of Tampa.
Florida delegation mem-
bers, including senators Mel
Martinez and Bill Nelson,


reluctantly supported that
bill. They argued that it was
the least threatening of the
two.
Now, the House is consid-
ering the Senate's version.
"The real exciting thing is
the Florida delegation is in


position to derail this legisla-
tion," said Ferrullo. "Unfort-
unately, there are a number of
members who are on the
fence or who have pledged
support for this bill.
"That's why it's still a living,
breathing threat."

Deborah Berioli to perform in Venice


BYJAN FINDLEY
CORRESPONDENT


For the past three years,
soprano Deborah Berioli has
given holiday concerts.
These concerts, it seems,
are becoming a tradition, and
she reports that a large,num-
ber of her fans wait until the
date of the concert is known
before they settle on their
departure date north to
spend Christmas with their
children and to visit old
friends.
Well, fans, you can make
your plans: The date for
Deborah Berioli's holiday
concert is Sunday, Dec. 17, at
2 p.m. in the Venice Church of
the Nazarene, 11535 E. Venice
Ave.
Each year, Berioli includes
an added something to
enrich her program. This year
with a bow to the Three
Tenors she is bringing two
sopranos from opposite sides
of the country to join her.
Soprano Jennifer Winn is
coming from New York City
and Alicia Lynch is coming
from San Jose, Calif., to join
Deborah Berioli.
They are calling them-
selves The Three Sopranos.
The theme of their program is
"Holiday Magic!" The pro-
gram will be in three sections
- operatic arias, sacred
music and lighter and popu-
lar holiday themes and arias.
Like'all of Berioli's concerts,
plan on being served a holi-
day feast for the ears.
As always, Berioli has


enlisted the best accompanist
in these parts to join them:
Piantist Lee Dougherty Ross.
You might be interested in
knowing that Berioli was born
in Harmony, N.J., and was a
protege of the late opera leg-
end Jerome Hines. She
debuted in Carnegie Hall in
2000 as soloist in Mozart's
"Requiem" and Faure's "Req-
uiem." Other groups and
orchestras with whom she
has performed are the
Northeast Symphonie En-
semble, Symphony of Silicon
Valley, the Orchestra of St.
Luke's at Lincoln Center and
the Venice Symphony.
From 2004 to 2006 she was
Principal Artist in Residence
with Opera San Jose in
California. She'll be returning
there in 2007 to perform the
title role in Puccini's "Ma-
dama Butterfly."
Tickets for the Dec. 17 con-
cert by The Three Sopranos
are available by phone (call
941-488-5007), in person at
the Venice Church of the
Nazarine on East Venice
Avenue both prior to the 17th'
and at the concert.
You can also download an
order form by going on line to
deborahberioli.com, and
click on concerts, which gives
you the mailing address and
all the info you need.
Berioli has a large fan base
in the area, so I suggest that if
you are a lover of beautiful,
trained voices that you order
your tickets early. This
promises to be a concert that
should not disappoint.

Ghost of Christmas Past spotted in area

Ring those bells
Bell ringers are still needed
by the Salvation Army for its
annual kettle campaign,
especially in the North Port
area. Ringers generally volun-
teer for two-hour shifts so a
group of five friends could
cover a whole day from 10
a.m. to 8 p.m. Church and
office groups often adopt ket-
ties for a day, a week or even
for the entire campaign. To
learn how you can help with'
the campaign, which gener-
ates money for a variety of
needs in this area, call Capt.
Chris Farrell or the kettle
chair Fred McCloe at 484-
6227. The people who receive
a Thanksgiving meal that they
would not otherwise have
and the children who receive
holiday gifts they might not
have and people made
homeless for some reason, all
will thank you. When kettles
cannot be manned for the
whole day, the Salvation
Army has to pay people to
ring the bell. This cuts into
the proceeds of an organiza-
tion 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. Kettles
will be out through Dec. 23.
Should a hurricane or
other disaster strike this area,
when the Salvation Army
canteen is on the scene feed-
ing the firemen and other
emergency workers plus
helping any residents in need,
you will be especially glad you


helped. Any one of us could
become one offhose people.
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, 34292.
Music to your ears
If you have not seen The
Players' production of "The
Sound of Music," you are
missing one of the best shows
that Sarasota theater has ever
done. Erica Jade Drew is won-
derful as Maria Rainer, the
young would-be nun who
transformed the lives of a
rigid widowed naval captain
(Allen Kretshmar) and his
seven children. Cliff Roles is
perfect as Max Detwiler and
all the children will steal your
hearts. Read my review in last
week's Let's Go!, to learn howl
really feel about this feel-
good show. The show closes
Dec. 17 so get your tickets
now. The Players is at 838
North Tamiami Trail, Sara-
sota. For tickets, call the box
office at 365-2494.
Scrooge is back
Another holiday tradition
is the Venice Little Theatre
production of "A Christmas
Carol." It is the best version I
have seen in this area and
with Eric Watters as Scrooge,
this is a must-see show that
will warm your hearts for the
holidays. The VLT is at 140 W
Tampa Ave. For tickets, call
the box office at 488-1115.
More on the boards
There is so much good the-
ater this year. Also not to be
missed are the Asolo Rep pro-
ductions of'Amadeus," "Men
of Tortuga" and "The Plexi-
glass Slipper." "Slipper" is a
full-blown musical, some-
thing different on the Mertz
stage and a different telling of
the classic "Cinderella" fairy
tale, a story for all ages. The
Asolo Repertory Theatre
Company performs in the


Florida State University Cen-
ter for the Arts, 5555 North
Tamiami Trail, Sarasota. For
tickets, call 381-8000.

some of the finest up-and-
coming musicians. Man-
hattan Transfer will play Dec.
27 and Jackie Mason will be
there on Dec. 28, followed by
"Man of La Mancha" Dec. 29-
31 arid the year will end at the

Year's Eve party on Dec. 31.

Goldsmith is continuing the
tradition of live acoustic
music.

the Soul, 525 E. Venice Ave.,

Aquaculture Park fire



report releases as Mote



begins drive to rebuild


STAFF REPORT

-The state Fire Marshall's
Office has released its report
about the July 20 fire at Mote
Aquaculture Park, with the
finding that the fire's cause
could not be determined.
State investigators had previ-
ously ruled out arson. The
report notes that while there
yvere approximately 40 light-
ning strikes in the vicinity
of the Aquaculture Park
around the time of the fire, no
direct link was found. The
release of the report comes as
iMote Mar-
ine Laboratory begins a
fundraisingg drive to help
-rebuild the 25,000-square-
'foot building lost in the fire.
SSince the fire, Mote has
'een studying the best way to
move forward.
"The building lost in this
fire was critical to our stur-
geon program," said Dr.
Kumar Mahadevan, Mote
President. "This program
Is designed to determine
Whether the use of environ-
rientally friendly techniques
in aquaculture is economical-
ly feasible. At the time of the
'fire, we were beginning to
,produce caviar, and at the
point of proving our econom-
ic model. Considering the
importance of this work at a
time when food fish species


are being depleted world-
wide, we decided that it was
imperative to move forward
with this project and rebuild.
We're hoping the community
will come forward and sup-
port this effort."
An article recently pub-
lished in the journal Science
predicts that stocks of com-
mercially harvested food fish:
Will collapse by 2048. Today,,
Americans are consuming 50
percent more seafood than
they did in the 1960s and the
U.S. trade deficit in seafood is
second only to that of oil.
"The time to create new
sources for seafood to meet a
growing demand is now,"
Mahadevan said. "We don't
want to wait until it's too late,
so it's extremely important
that we move forward with-
out delay."
Mote Aquaculture Park is a
state-of-the-art commercial
demonstration project inno-
vating new filtration and ani-
mal husbandry techniques to
produce marine and freshwa-
ter species such as sturgeon,
snook, red snapper, pom-
pano, coral and queen conch
to supply the growing de-
mand for food fish and to
help replenish our ocean
resources. Research is critical
to helping farmers diversify
their crops and aquaculture
can help Florida remain com-


petirive and diverse in its eco-
nomic base.
Newsustainable sources of
seafood produced in the U.S.
also help maintain strict con-
trols of food supply and food
safety and new seafood alter-
natives will help reduce fish-
ing pressure on wild stocks to
allow those populations to
rebuild.
SMote lost one building and
about one-third of its stur-
geon stock in the fire. The cost
to rebuild the structure -
which included 16 19,000-
gallon fiberglass tanks, filtra-
tion and feeding systems is
estimated to be $1.7 million.
Mote also needs to raise an
additional $1.3 million to
cover operating costs. A Mote
Board Member and Volun-
teer, John Pether, a CPA who
is retired from a career in
financial management, is tak-
ing a lead role in the rebuild-'
ing effort.
"I was on Mote's Board of
Trustees six years ago when it
decided to move forward with
this project and I believe in it
wholeheartedly. I came back
to Mote to head up this effort
as a volunteer because I think
it's extremely important for
the public good. I urge our
community to rally behind
the rebuilding by providing
financial support or in-kind
donations."

A mutant tree all aglow


DAVE BARRY
.i; i'1


EDITOR'S NOTE: This classic
Dave Barry column was originally
published Dec. 14,1997.

Tis that special time of
year, The Holiday Retail
Purchasing Season, a time
when we traditionally print
heartwarming human-inter-
est stories designed to make
you feel better about running
up a level of debt normally
associated with Mexico.
I have such a heartwarm-
ing story, which was pub-
lished by The London Times
and sent in by alert reader
John Nicholls. The story,
which I am not making up,
concerns a man named Neil
from Devon, England, who
discovered an owl nesting in
his garden.
Each night, Neil would go
outside and hoot to the owl.
To his delight, he'd hear a hoot
in reply; then he'd hoot some
more.
This went on night after
night, month after month;
Neil even kept a log of his con-
versations with the owl. Then
one day, Neil's wife got to talk-.
ing about this with a neigh-
bor, who said that her hus-
band, whose name is Fred,
had also been going out every


. night to hoot to the owl. At
this point, the women real-
ized that their husbands had
in fact spent an entire year
hooting to each other. The
owl was not involved at all.
The owl was probably
inviting its owl friends over to
drink owl beer and listen to
these two hooting twits and
laugh until they fell off the
branch.
I admit that this heart-
warming story is not directly
.related to the holiday season,
but doesn't it make you feel
better? You can say to your-
self: "Maybe I will go broke
this- holiday season, and
maybe I will wind up hospi-
talized with injuries Sustained
in hand-to-hand combat with
other parents over who gets
to buy the last Beanie Baby at
the Toys Sure 'R' Expensive
store, but at least I will not be
spending my evenings stand-
ing in some cold, damp
English garden exchanging
hoots with a man named
Fred!"'
Yes, this is a time of year to
count our blessings. Here's
another one: Thanks to sci-
ence, we may soon have a.
new, mutant Christmas tree. I
have here an Associated Press
article, sent in by many alert
readers, about a plant scien-
tist at the University of
California at Davis who has
isolated a certain gene from a
fish that glows in the dark.
The scientist's idea is to put
this gene into a Christmas
tree, which Would result in -
you guessed it a Christmas
tree that eats worms!
No, seriously, it will be a
Christmas tree that glows in
the dark. Isn't that wonderful?
No, it is not. I speak on
behalf of every person who


* has ever attempted to put a
Christmas tree into a
Christmas-tree stand, only to
wind up on the floor, covered
with sap.and thousands of
pine-needle stab marks.
Because the Christmas tree is
the most vicious predator in
the entire tree kingdom. You
know how sometimes hikers
disappear in the forest, and
their decomposed bodies are
found months later, and the
authorities blame it on "expo-
sure"?
Did you ever stop to ask
yourself: Exposure to what?
I'll tell you what: Christmas
trees. They travel in packs and
can strike like lightning with a
variety of weapons.
FIRST CORONER: What do
we have here?
SECOND CORONER: It
appears to be another victim
of "exposure." Take a look at
this.
FIRST CORONER: Wow!
I've never seen a pine cone
there before!
But as dangerous as
Christmas trees can be in the
wild, they are far more deadly
when you corner one in your
house and try to put a tree
stand on it.
So here's what I want to
know: If scientists are going to
impart a new quality to
Christmas trees, why would
that quality be the ability to
glow in the dark?
What we consumers want
in our Christmas trees is the
quality of not poking us in the
eye, combined with the qual-
ity of not always keeling over
like fraternity brothers on
Intravenous Vodka Night.
I say if we're going to inject
genes into Christmas trees,
let's take these genes from
some rigid, immobile organ-


ism, such as Robert Stack.
Maybe what we're dealing
with here is a scientific fad. I
say this because of another
AP story, also sent in by many
alert readers, concerning sci-
entists at Osaka University in
Japan who have, using DNA
obtained from a jellyfish,
managed to create I am
not making this up, either a
glow-in-the-dark mouse.
Why would they do this?
Do they think regular mice
are not already alarming
enough? Do they think we
want to come into our
kitchen at 3 a.m. to enjoy a
nutritious snack of congealed
pizza, only to be confronted
by glowing rodents scuttling
around like something out of
"The X-Files"? And what will
happen when it's only a
matter of time some scien-
tist has one too many glasses
of sake and decides to put
some jellyfish DNA into a
Christmas tree? Good luck
getting THAT thing into a tree
stand!
FIRST CORONER: Take a
look at this.
SECOND CORONER: Wow!
Looks like that pine cone was
inserted with some kind of
tentacle!
I've run out of space here,
so let me just close this heart-
warming holiday column by
Extending my sincerest
generic wishes to each and
every one of you, especially
Neil and Fred, to whom I say,
from the bottom of,my heart:
Hoot.

Venice Elementary School Teacher of the year

The boys spoke to her students about holiday customs.


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFFWRITER


Linda Trigg had a busy
summer. She spent it making
costumes for her second-
grade gifted Venice Elemen-
tary School students for
many multi-cultural holiday
events at the school.
When her students don
costumes she made, they
take on the persona of the
character the costume repre-
sents. As they walk in the his-
torical person's shoes, stu-
dents learn about, their life.
At a very impressionable time
in their lives, students realize
whit it was like to live in
another era.
This is just one of the rea-
sons why Linda Trigg was
chosen 2006 Teacher of the
Year.
"She is intensely creative,
very loving and devoted to
the school community as a
whole," said Theresa Baus
principal ofVES school.
Her creativity was first rec-
ognized this semester with
the schools highly publicized
Veteran's day program.
Trigg invited Venice Post
159 American Legion mem-
bers to the celebration. First-
grade students held up signs
saying "we love our American
heroes," second-graders
stood behind each sign and
gave a little speech. Each
class throughout the entire
school had a part in the pro-
gram.


In memory ofVenice's fall-
en heroes, Trigg made three
large wreaths for the Veteran's
day celebration. One was
given for the veterans, anoth-
er for the fire fighters and one
for the law-enforcement offi-
cers. In a dramatic ceremony
that included students, par-
,ents and visitors, the wreaths
were placed in memory by
the students at the flag pole.
Plimoth Plantation feast
For the third year in a row
Trigg helped her students
celebrate the Thanksgiving
holiday by recreating the
Plimoth Plantation feast
(spelled Plimoth). As part of a
social-studies program, Trigg
made a total of 84 costumes
for her second-grade stu-
dents.
Donned in their outfits
students recreated the life of a
separatist coming to
America. Each told of the
hardships and joys about
coming to a new country.
Students picked out an actu-
al Mayflower crew member
or passenger and studied
their lives. The program
became more than just a
class for the students. It was a
learning experience that will
be remembered for a long
time.
Following the presenta-
tion, Trigg organized a feast
with students and parents
outside the school. Each
brought foods that were part
of the original Plimoth


Plantation feast.
"Her students are so excit-
ed about all the activities
going on in her class," said
Lori Stafford, bookkeeper at
VES and winner of Staff
Member of the Year award.
"In a fun way students
learn about the cultures
around the world and how
holidays are celebrated," she
said.
Holidays
A multi-cultural holiday
cerebration is going on this
month. Trigg invited two
Venice High School boys to
dress in yuletide costumes
she created. Jason Dorsey
and Danny Caldwell
described to the second-
grade students how the holi-
days are observed all over the
world
Trigg made a total of 12
costumes that typify the garb
worn in places like India,
Russia, Greece, Norway,
Sweden, Germany, France,
England, Italy and Ireland.
She also included the cus-
tom of Hanukkah.
Students were given a
greeting by the boys in the
language of the cultural iden-
tity they assumed for the day.
Second-graders were taught
the holiday customs of the
country they represented.
National recognition
Trigg's Tribe (the second
grade class) received national
recognition this year for cre-


activity on their Outstanding
Radiant Peace Project, from
the 16th annual Radiant
Peace Education Awards for
2006. Their class was awarded
special recognition in creativ-
ity for their "we are all a piece
of the peace puzzle" project.
Future
Trigg's class will participate
in an art show at the Sarasota
County fair grounds in
March. Plans are underway
to display,200 pieces of mat-
ted art. Students will begin
the program in January.
During the month of
March, students will build
leprechaun traps as a science
project. The purpose is to
teach them angles, shapes,
and simple machines.
In May a young author's
program is planned and chil-
dren will write their own
books. They will also be
asked to illustrate them. The
books will be presented to
parents at a luncheon
planned at the school.
.Florida has been selecting
a teacher of the year -since
1967. Over the past 30 years,
the program has been devel-
oped into a highly regarded
statewide recognition pro-
gram.
The mission of this Florida
program is to focus attention
on the contribution of class-
room teachers and recognize
and honor those who have a
superior capacity to inspire a
love of learning in students of
all backgrounds and abilities.
"She is really devoted to
her students," Baus said "she
goes above and beyond in
everything she does."

Florida Ag in the Classroom awards teacher grants


STAFF REPORT

Florida Agriculture in the
Classroom, Inc., awarded 22
Florida teachers with grants
totaling nearly $25,000 for the
2006-2007 school year. These
agricultural classroom pro-
jects will reach about 6,000
students in kindergarten
through 12th grade.
These grant projects incor-
porate agricultural concepts
into science, history, lan-
guage arts and math lessons,
and include activities such as
plant tissue culture propaga-
tion, hydroponics, and earth
box gardening. Florida Ag in
the Classroom curricula and
materials will be used to com-
plement these activities.
"It is essential that Florida
teachers incorporate these
agricultural concepts into
their classrooms through an
applied learning experience
that Florida Ag in the
Classroom makes possible,"
said Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson, who is a former


agriculture teacher. "Teachers
that utilize the grant program
are ensuring the future of the
Florida agriculture industry
by educating their students
about the importance of the
industry and the role it plays
in providing them with food,
fiber and other natural
resources."
Florida Ag in the Classroom
can provide grant money for
teachers because of the fund-
ing it receives from the agri-
culture specialty license plate
called the Ag Tag.
"Our teacher grant program
gives us the chance to provide
teachers with the resources
they need in their classrooms
to bring agricultural concepts
to life," said Heather Nedley,
chairmen of Florida Ag in the
Classroom and executive
director of Polk County Farm
Bureau. "The applied cur-
riculum provides students
with opportunities to learn
about plants and other agri-
culture commodities, and see
how these commodities fit
into their daily lives." Florida
Ag in the Classroom is a non-


profit or-ganization charged
with educating students and
teachers about the impor-
tance of Florida agriculture by
providing them with curricu-
la, materials, grant money
and other programs.

Exercise reminders
for students
STAFF REPORT

To be effective, exercises,
do not have to be done all at
once. When students are
active throughout the day,
small amounts of exercise
time will add up.
In general, all students
should get at least an hour of
physical activity each day.
Here are some simple tips to
put more exercise into your
routine.,
Jump rope for ten minutes.
Put on some music and
dance to it.
Bike to the library or a
friend's house. Note: for safe-
ty, use sidewalks and wear
helmets.
When doing errands, park
far from the store to encour-
age more walking time.
Take stairs rather than the
elevator when you're shop-
ping.
Every step burns calories.
Exercise not only makes you
healthier, it helps you sleep
better at night and be in bet-
ter shape to learn and keep
up with day's activities.

Counseling services



expand to meet needs



of Hispanic community


STAFF REPORT


Catholic Charities of
Sarasota County Counseling
Center is expanding its ser-
vices to reach out to the grow-
ing Hispanic population in
area communities. Mental
health counseling is now
offered in Spanish and
English and by a culturally
aware therapist.
"There are some cultural
differences for the Hispanic
population that must be
taken into consideration
when providing clinical coun-
seling," said Dora Limoncelli,
Supervising Therapist for
Catholic Charities of Sarasota
County. "For instance, assimi-
lating into a new country or
environment or culture is
often very difficult."
Catholic Charities
Counseling Center offers
comprehensive services not
only for the Hispanic coin-
munity but also for anyone
dealing with emotional or
behavioral issues such as
stress, depression, anxiety,
panic, relationship conflicts,
decision-making, communi-
cation problems, work or
retirement issues, behavior
management, grief and
bereavement, coping with
physical illness and habit
control.
Short-term counseling and
therapy is provided to indi-
viduals, couples or groups on
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday

Jazz legend appears at Van Wezel


STAFF REPORT

Celebrated jazz vocalist and
guitarist John Pizzarelli will per-
form selections from his latest
release, "Dear Mr. Sinatra," as
Manhattan Transfer's guest at
the Van Wezel Performing Arts
Hall in Sarasota, onWednesday,
Dec. 27.
Pizzarelli, one of the most
celebrated performers bring-
ing popular standards to a
new generation, has just
released a recording on Telarc
International, "Dear Mr.
Sinatra." On the album,
Pizzarelli pays homage to
Frank Sinatra, considered by
some the greatest entertainer
of all time, by focusing on
songs that were specifically
written for "01' Blue Eyes."
Early in his career, Pizzarelli
opened for Sinatra on tour.


His father, the jazz guitar leg-
end Bucky Pizzarelli, played
on many of Sinatra's seminal
recordings.
"Dear Mr. Sinatra" is in
many ways the most personal
of all the Sinatra tributes
available.
"Frank has always been
one of my main musical
influences," Pizzarelli said. "I
love the way he transforms
himself from song to song. In
the early 1990s, I was honored
to open for him with my
quartet in Europe and around
the States. Frank would
appear in the wings during
our final number, swinging
and clapping and smiling. He
would come onstage and
cheer for us. It was an honor
to play with him, and we were
thrilled he enjoyed our
music."


"Dear Mr. Sinatra" is
Pizzarelli's first major record-
ing with The Clayton-
Hamilton Jazz Orchestra,
even though he has known
John Clayton and Jeff
Hamilton for more than 20
years. Fresh off the smash
success of "Christmas Songs"
and their collaboration with
jazz superstar Diana Krall,
The Clayton-Hamilton Jazz
Orchestra's scintillating per-
formances and world-class
arrangements add to the
cohesiveness of the record.
Tickets are $45 and $55.
Show starts at 8 p.m. The Van
Wezel Performing Arts Hall is
located at 777 North Tamiami
Trail in Sarasota, Florida. For

chase tickets call (800) 826-

When asked when should
'a person seek counseling,
Limoncelli said, "when an
issue or behavior begins to
interfere with a person's life or
relationships with others, and
it is beyond their abilities to

deal with the situation."
"Sometimes things can be
repaired- easily," Limoncelli
said., "Counseling allows a

window that often they did
not realize existed for them."

/ neck pain can b6 caused
S by trauma, it is most often
caused by a poor sleeping
position. Most people give a
great deal of consideration to the
kind of mattress that will give them
the best night's sleep, but it's
usually a pillow that is the culprit
behind waking up with a stiff neck.
With this, in mind, choose your pillow
carefully. Make sure it-doesn't force
your head and neck into an unnatural
sleeping position, either too high or
too low. If necessary, have someone
observe your head and neck position
on the pillow. Feather pillows will
typically provide the best fit as they
are more apt to shape themselves
along the contours of the head and
neck.
P.S. Replace any pillow that
has flattened out.

erful force in the world is the
bond of friendship. Wilbur, a


pig and the runt of the litter,
has a youthful manner that
makes him seem naive to
the other animals in his new
barn. But to Charlotte the
spider in the barn he is a
welcome friend. Their
friendship is shown to be a
lasting one when the other
animals reveal that ,the pig's
days are numbered. Char-
lotte spins words into her
web and tries to convince
the farmer that Wilbur is a
pig worth saving.

Cooked to perfection
Dressed in a fire-resistant
jacket, Venice Gondolier Sun
publisher Bob Vedder lis-
tened to family and friends
roast and toast him.
"People tell me I'm a lot
like my dad," Scott Vedder
said, "But you'll never find me
waiting for a health club to
open at 4:45 a.m." "You Read
It in The Gondolier," Jim
Clinch sang, poking fun at
mistakes made at the paper.
The dining room at
Mission Valley Golf and
Country Club brought togeth-
er about 150 friends and foes
poking fun at Bob. He jabbed
right back by showing scores
for each roaster ranging from
0.0 to 2.9.
After roasting, most toast-
ers admitted Bob was a great
dad, like a brother and a won-
derful friend.
Master of ceremonies CJ.
Fishman added a few jabs
and Mick Gardner didn't miss
a chance to give a few right
back to C.J. Andy Britton pre-
sented Bob with a special hat
and boa Bob is known for
his female costumes.
Lynn Lewis led Mayor Fred
Hammett, Lois Steketee,
John Ryan, Candy Mill-
ington, Jean Peters, "Steve
Brett and Carolyn Eagen in a
Mickey Mouse tribute to Bob.
The evening proved some-
thing friends at the fundraiser
already knew: Bob Vedder
makes a positive difference in
this community and he can
take a joke.
Proceeds from this special
evening raised funds for
United Way. Bravo to every-
one involved.
A song in their hearts
Rebecca Huntley deserves
a bravo for a coordinating a
wine-and-cheese party for
the Venice Opera Guild.
Maurice LoMonaco sang for
the group and wowed them
with his 'Ave Maria."
Maurice describes himself
as an emotional singer and
enjoys performing for chil-
dren with special needs.

Clothes, comedy rule
Lois Kinzer, Melba Martin
and Ruth Kaal know inviting
Ken Sons to narrate a fashion
show makes it one of a kind.
About 250 men and women
laughed hysterically at his
comments.
Models Jean Peters, Joan
Beneke, Karen Byers, Joe
Furey, Wes Schumacher,
David Greenwood, Larry
Chiulli, Sandy Rehbert Sue
Lord, Gladys Susek and Rita
Harkey showed off the
clothes and were the perfect
straightmen for the comic.
The Friends of the Venice
Symphony benefit included
clothes from Krystyna's and
Captain's Landing on Venice
Avenue. Committee members
Cameron Buchanan, Stacey
Gorman and Anne Harrison
helped make the event at the
Plantation Golf & Country
Club a success. Bravo.

One of our best
The special person of this
week is Sue Vedder. This nice
lady never wants her picture
in the paper and works at
staying out of the limelight.
She volunteers for Venice
MainStreet and wherever else
she is called.
Sue enjoys her family and
spending time. with her
grandchildren. At the roast for
Bob, most people paid tribute
to her, including Bob and
their sons, Todd and Scott.
Sue really is the wind beneath
her husband's wings. She is
one of the women who help
make Venice special.
