Conflicting deeds threaten Anita's Sandcastle


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER

The U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers has challenged the
city of Venice over ownership
of some land adjacent to the
South Jetty.
The 50-foot-wide strip of
land along the Intracoastal
Waterway just happens to
houses Anita's Sandcastle
Snack Bar and adjacent pub-
lic restrooms.
Corps Chief of Man-
agement and Disposal Shar-
on Conklin sent a letter to
City Engineer NancyWoodley
in November that claims the
land is right of way that be-
longs to and must be con-


trolled by the federal govern-
ment.
But in a brief response last
week, City Attorney Bob An-
derson stated that the city
disagrees with the Corps'
claim of ownership.
She said
Attached to Conklin's letter
was a drawing of the South
Jetty area, which she de-
scribed as "the easement to
the United States, that gives
the government the perpetu-
al right to enter upon the land
in question for the construc-
tion, maintenance or enlarge-
ment of the Federal project."
According to Conklin, the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers


must maintain at least a 50-
foot-wide strip of land along
the Intracoastal in order to
perform any future major
construction that may be
necessary there.
"Therefore," Conklin stat-
ed, "this ... strip of land must
be free of the existing en-
croachments .... (T)he city of
Venice must remove the con-
cession stand/restroom facil-
ities, together with all utilities,
from this strip of land."
Conklin did express the
willingness of the Corps to
allow the concession stand to
remain in place for up to six
months while negotiating a
suitable place elsewhere on
the easement to relocate it.


She concluded by recom-
mending that representatives
of the two parties meet to dis-
cuss such alternatives.
He said
Anderson's letter took ex-
ception to the Corps' request,
based on his opinion that the
land belongs to the city. He
included deeds that show
that the strip of land in ques-
tion was included in a parcel
"conveyed to the city by
Sarasota County, Florida."
Then he briefly stated the
city's response to Conklin's
letter:
"It is the city's position that

According to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Anita's
Sandcastle Snack Bar, the popular hot dog and refreshment
stand located at the South Jetty in Venice, is in its right of way
and must be moved. The city says the Corps is wrong.


Auburn Road traffic


signal becoming a reality


City planners say
Waterford Companies
has committed to
installing the traffic
light before Christmas.

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Residents who drive onto
East Venice Avenue from'
Auburn Road are getting an
early Christmas gift a new
traffic light.
It's too late for at least one
unlucky driver, whose car was
damaged Saturday evening
when an auto traveling
inbound on East Venice
Avenue crashed into the dri-
ver's side door of a car
attempting to enter traffic at
Auburn Road, a dangerous
proposition, according to
area residents.
Cement footings for the
signal were poured last
month. Masts and arms for
the traffic light arrived this
week.
Roadrunner Highway Signs
Inc. put the masts up on
Wednesday, and were prepar-
ing to attach the arms.
The light should be up next
week, Roadrunner workers
said.

before Christmas. Installation
will be followed by weeks of
.testing.
"I am convinced we will
have lights by the first of the
year," said Larry Grimard,
who sits oA the Venice
Planning Commission.
Grimard, who lives in Saw-
grass off Auburn Road, has
been a tireless proponent of
the traffic light.
"It's a serious problem. If
there haven't been any acci-
dents at that intersection
then its only by the grace of


God," he said last week, just
days prior to the accident.
"If you want to head east
off Auburn Road you've got to
cut across (two-lane EastVen-
ice Avenue) traffic going west,
and stop halfway between
two medians to eyeball traffic
zooming down from the west.
It's a challenge," Grimard
said.
That was exactly the situa-
tion faced by the driver whose
car was struck Saturday eve-
ning.

Sheriff's pilot quits after


internal investigation


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


Sarasota County Sheriff's
Sgt. Roger Jernigan, the agen-
cy's chief pilot, has resigned
from the sheriff's office effec-
tive Dec. 14.
The surprise move came
during an Internal Affairs
investigation regarding an
online college course Jern-
igan took three years ago.
"We didn't ask him to
resign," Chief Deputy Larry
Dunklee said. "There was an
Internal Affairs investigation
and we informed him of the
facts and gave him the option
of what he wanted to do."
Jernigan said he did not
have any other option at the
time.
"This is the first investiga-
tion ever conducted on me in
my 21-year career," Jernigan
said. "I have dedicated my life
to law enforcement 24/7 for
21 years."

Wrong school
Jernigan said he had
enough college credits when
he was hired (full-time in
1989) for an associate's de-
gree. He had 144 college
hours from various institu-
tions, and he wanted to con-

vert them into a bachelor's
degree online.
So, Jernigan took some col-
-lege courses three years ago
and received incentive mon-
ey after he received his online
diploma. The incentive
money amounted to $2,250.
"I volunteered to reim-
burse the agency in full,"
Jernigan said. "I have the
check already written."
It turned out that the col-
lege Jernigan received his
degree from was not one on


the agency's accredited list.
Jernigan said the college he
actually received his degree
from had the same name as
an accredited college. How-
ever, the namesake was not
an accredited school.
Dunklee said the sheriff's
office Human Resources De-
partment should have caught
the mix-up but did not.
Professional
Dunklee said the IA inves-
tigation will close now with
Jernigan's resignation.
Dunklee praised Jernigan's
record.
"He was an excellent offi-
cer, very professional, very
popular," Dunklee said. "He
held some very important
positions in our agency. This
is going to hurt; he's a top-
notch performer."
Dunklee said his office
conferred with the state attor-
ney's office. The consensus
was that the matter could be
handled administratively ra-
ther than by charging Jern-
igan with any crime.

sheriff's deputy for 21 years
and with the aviation unit for
eight years. In addition to

Equipment being assembled for beach project


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


A crew has started to assem-
ble heavy equipment at Turtle
Beach Park for the $11.8 million
south Siesta Key beach restora-
tion project, which could get
under way late next week if a
dredge boat arrives offshore and
Army Corps of Engineers
inspectors give the go signal.
"Bulldozers and loaders have


arrived on the beach and work-
ers are assembling the floating
pipe," said Curtis Smith, a
Sarasota County project engi-
neer. "Pretty soon a tugboat will
pull the pipe out. People can see
white buoys about 4,000 feet off
the north end (near Point of
Rocks)."
It has been a struggle to get
the project under wayin time to
avoid the 2007 sea turtle nesting
season, which begins May 1. A


last-minute administrative chal-
lenge filed by Blind Pass Road
property owner Nancy Bums
Stratton caused a two-week
delay
An administrative hearing
could have forced a one-year
postponement, butwas averted
when a Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
attorney denied Stratton's peti-
tion on Nov. 16 and closed the
case on Nov. 27 when she failed


to file an appeal.
"A work boat was survey-
ing the hard bottom (near
Point of Rocks)," Smith said,
"so it's just a question of when
the dredge arrives. The Army
Corps has to inspect it. Work
will then begin right away,
even if it's Christmas Eve, and
go on round-the-clock."
While the project has almost
doubled in cost since it was ini-
tially proposed, the county's

Some water



customers get



a break


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER

Thanks to a deal with the
state, some Venice water cus-
tomers are getting a Christ-
mas present of sorts: They
won't have to retrofit their
backflow preventers.
The Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection and the
Sarasota Health Department
had advised the city that all
residences would be required
to install or convert to the
newer ."reduced pressure"
cross connection devices -
the ugly kind
that stick up
above the
ground.

months of
wrangling
with the city
over that
issue, howev-
er, they have Simmonds
agreed to
allow homes with previously
approved "dual check assem-
bly" devices installed in the
meter box to keep those units
- as long as they remain
operable or can be repaired.
However, the change does
not affect commercial prop-
erties, many of which have
recently received notices
from the city that they will
have to come into compli-
ance or face enforcement
action. And any new residen-
tial construction within the
city limits will also be
required to install the "re-
duced pressure" devices if cir-
cumstances warrant.
Utilities Distribution Su-
pervisor Ed Mort summa-
rized for couLici Tuesday the
changes that had become
possible due to an agreement
by the DEP and the health
department.
Conversion to the new
devices will be determined
"on a case-by-case basis," said
Utilities Manager Chris Shar-
ek, "depending on several fac-
tors regarding the type of ser-
vices being provided and the
characteristics of the particu-
lar location.
"We estimate that 80 per-
cent of the existing homes in
Venice are in compliance with
this revised requirement."
Council member John
Simmonds was the lone vote
against the ordinance revi-
sion, citing the lack of spe-
cifics about the number of
properties it would apply to.
"I need to know exactly

IL"'itm


how many homes will be
affected by this change before
I can vote on it," Simmonds
said.
SCity Manager Marty Black
said that the information
would be developed later,
along with other details of
implementation that council
would. eventually have to
decide.
"Right now," said Black,
"the state is
looking for us
to approve
this revised
manual to
confirm the
fact that we ,
are applying
the higher
standard to
any new Black
develop-
ment."
Other action
In other business Tuesday,
council:
Heard first reading of an
ordinance granting a cable
television franchise toVerizon
Florida LLC. Verizon would
become a competitor with
Comcast, offering fiber optic
service.
Approved the Phase II
Report of the One"Cent Sales
Tax Oversight Committee.
Presented proclamations
of service recognition to
Police Lt. Keith Harvey and
Solid Waste Equipment Oper-
ator Richard Woodford, both
of whom are retiring this
month.
Swore in five recently
promoted members of the
fire department and five in
the police department.,..:
Presented service, awards,
to Water Reclamation Depart-
ment employees Kurt Krug,
plant operator (10 years) and
Tim Merritt, collections and
maintenance supervisor (five
years).
Presented a proclamation
to the Sarasota/Manatee
Metropolitan Planning Or-
ganization declaring Dec. 13
"Tamiami Scenic Trail Day,"
dedicated to the improve-
ments made in the Venice
area along both U.S. 41
Business and U.S. 41 Bypass.

ski for the Venice Christmas

Planning agreement faces hurdles


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER

CityAttorey Bob Anderson
advised Venice City Council
Tuesday that a third draft of a
.proposed joint planning agree-
ment with Sarasota County
had been largely agreed upon
at the staff level.
ButAnderson also informed
council members there were a
couple of issues that had come
up just in the past few days they
needed to be aware of.
'At the last joint meeting,"
Anderson said, "the county
requested the requirement of a
'super majority' vote to approve
any future changes to the agree-
ment. North Port had already
stated that their charter would
not allow them to take such a
position."
"I have now researched the
Venice City Charter," he said,
"and must advise you that
chapter 3.09 (C) states that
four affirmative votes (a sim-


ple majority) are required for
any such action, so Venice
cannot agree to a super-
majority provision."
Anderson advised council
to strongly
(0 object to any
proposal by
the county
that they sim-
ply impose
the super
majority rule
on themselves.
"Theeffect of
that," he
Anderson explained,
"would be to
increase the difficultyin amend-
ing the agreement, and that
reduces mylevel of comfort with
it"
City Manager Marty Black
agreed, saying that he had
already advised facilitator Linda
Shelly that Venice planned to
object if the county seemed set
on pursuing the concept any
further.


"All the legislative bodies
need the ability to exercise their
authority to amend the JPA in
the future if that becomes nec-
essary," Black said.
How long?
Another issue regarding the
JPA is the term of the agree-
ment The county had initially
proposed that it run until 2050
(43 years after adoption next
year).The city responded with a
proposal for an initial term of 25
years, with extension by mutual
agreement of 10 and then five
years, for a total of 40 years.
At the last joint session that
proposal seemed acceptable to
both sides, but the attorneys
have learned there is case law
that may limit the term of the
agreement to 20 years.
"Florida Statute Chapter 171
is the Interlocal Service
Boundary Act," Anderson said,
"and we feel the JPA would fall
under that legislation. There are
a couple of case decisions,


referred to as 'Safety Harbor'
and 'Ormond Beach,' which
would indicate that our JPA
would have to be limited to 20
years or less."
Since the applicability of
both the law and the case law
has been questioned by some,
Anderson has drafted language
for a "saving clause" that pro-
vides that, though the JPA states
term of25 years or more, ifthat
provision is subsequently found
to be illegal, the term will auto-
matically revert to the 20 years
prescribed, rather than negat-
ing the whole agreement
"Providing we get the county
to approve it next month," said
Anderson, "this may very well
be the first agreement created
under ES. 171."
When the discussion con-
cluded, several council mem-
bers expressed their appreci-
ation for the hard work that
has been done to quickly
negotiate with the county and
develop a workable plan.

An expert witness who
will testify for the company
that manufactured Sarasota
County's touch-screen voting
machines has concluded
Democrat Christine Jennings
would have beaten Repub-
lican Vern Buchanan on Nov.
7 had Sarasota County voters
used Charlotte County's
equipment and ballot.
Dartmouth College politi-
cal science professor Michael
C. Herron arrived at his deter-
mination in a 60-page report
released Dec. 3, a day before
he was retained by Election
Systems & Software Inc. to
testify in a lawsuit brought by
Jennings that challenges
Buchanan's 369-vote victory.
In an abstract that summa-
rizes the analytical study's
findings, Herron stated: "We
find there is essentially a 100
percent chance that Jennings
would have won the
Congressional District 13 race
had Sarasota County voters
voted in Charlotte County."
The report, titled "Ballot
Formats, Touchscreens and
Undervotes: A Study of the
2006 Midterm Elections in
Florida," can be found on the
college's Web site. It has been
submitted by the company as
evidence before a Leon
County circuit court in Talla-
hassee.
Well into the highly techni-
cal report, Herron also made
the following observation:
"Looking to the combined
results, we can be 90 percent
confident that between
14,322 and 14,896 voters in
Sarasota County were sup-
pressed from voting in the
District 13 race."


%-vue O cmly i
Jennings and her anrorney,
Kendall Coffey, will be back in
the Tallahassee court late this


week and early next week to
both pursue their request for
a revote and obtain permis-
sion to access "source codes"
programmed into the coun-
ty's 1,615 ES&S iVotronic
machines.
Source codes allow com-
puter software to work with
hardware. They convert what
people can read into what the
equipment can execute. It is
virtually impossible for inte-
grated computer systems to
work without them, and
manufacturers attempt to
keep them secret.
In addition, Coffey will file
a challenge on or before Dec.
20 with the Committee on
House Administration in
.Washington, D.C., which is
charged with the oversight of
federal elections and the day-
to-day functions of the U.S.
House of Representatives.
The court challenge and
request for a federal investiga-
tion will focus on more than
18,300 undervotes that were
inexplicably not cast by
Sarasota County residents who
signed in at 165 precincts and
submitted general election bal-
lots.
County and state elections
officials have been either
unable or unwilling to explain
why almost 13 percent of the
voters who used touch-
screen machines failed to
identify either Jennings or
Buchanan, compared to less
than 5 percent in four sur-
rounding counties.

Finger pointing
Herron and three other
elections experts from the
academic community (two
from UCLA and one from the
University of Rochester) also
concluded the ballot place-
ment in Sarasota County was
a ruajor cofitributing factor in
the disproportionate number
of undervotes.
"The high undervote rate


in the 13th Congressional
District race was almost cer-
tainly caused by the way that
Sarasota County's electronic
touch-screen. voting ma-
chines placed the race above
and on the same screen as the
Florida governor race," they
stated.
Their findings appear to
point the finger of blame at
Elections Supervisor Kathy
Dent and members of her-
staff, or outsiders, who were
responsible for designing the
ballot used in machines that
produce no verifiable paper
receipt for routine election
audits.
Despite evidence of voter
suppression, Jennings faces
an uphill fight in her bid to
have the Nov. 7 election
results set aside. Congress
and the courts place the bur-
den of proof in elections dis-
putes squarely on the chal-
lenger, and rarely overturn
results.
Drew Hammill, a spokes-
man for U.S. Rep. Nancy
Pelosi, the House Speaker-
designate, said the Demo-
cratic Party leadership is well
aware of what is unfolding in
Sarasota County and will be
prepared to make a tough call
when the time comes.
'All I can tell you is the'
speaker-designate is watch-
ing the situation very closely,"
he said.'"As January gets near-
er (and the 110th Congress is
convened) she will evaluate
all options. She is taking
nothing off the table. The sit-
uation is an urgent reminder
of the need for election
reform."
Jennings says that's fair.
"I think Congress will have
a lot of options. It could call
for an investigation of what
happened that includes rec-
ommendations. It could seat
Vern, seat Vern conditionally,
call for a new election or seat
me."
No rule book
Sandy Collins, a spokes- .
person-for-the Committee on
House Administration, con-
firmed there is no rule book


for what Congress can do. But
she pointed out that the
House of Representatives is
reluctant to take extraordi-
nary action unless faced with
overwhelming evidence.
"We monitor all Con-
gressional races that are likely
to be narrow," she said. "We
had an observer in Sarasota
County for the recount and
when the machines were test-
ed. If Jennings files, we'll look
at all the information and put
together a recommendation
for the representatives."
The committee has been
involved in 102 disputed elec-
tions since 1933, and the vast
majority were resolved in
favor of the candidate who
was originally declared the
winner. Most cases have been
dismissed because the chal-
lenger failed to sustain the
necessary burden of proof.
When Collins was asked if
Congress could refuse to seat
either Buchanan. or Jennings,
and instead order a new elec-
tion, she replied, "It's not
beyond the realm of possibil-
ity. But at the end of the day,
it's all up to the representa-
tives."
The ES&S iVotronic touch-
screen machines used on
Nov. 7 will never be part of
another countywide election.
They received a vote of no-
confidence from more than
55 percent of the electorate in
a charter referendum that
requires voter-verifiable bal-
lots by 2008.

the subject improvements are
located on land owned by the
city of Venice, and that the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
and the West Coast Inland
Navigation District consent-
ed to construction of the sub-
ject improvements, that no
encroachment exists, and
that removal of the improve-
ments is not required. In light
of the city's position, the city


of Venice declines your offer
... to meet and discuss alter-
nate locations...."
Before Anita's Sandcastle
was built in 2003, the city of
Venice got the approval of
both the Corps and WCIND
for an exact location upon
which they had all agreed. So
the letter from Conklin sur-
prised everyone at the city, as
well as concession owner
Anita Deans, who leases from
the city.


What now?
The city attorney's re-
sponse puts the ball squarely
back in the Corps' court. After
comparing and analyzing the
apparently conflicting deeds,
it will have to decide which is
legal and enforceable, and
whether it wants to pursue its
challenge further.
Anderson indicated he
hoped this will be just a rou-
tine matter of the Corps find-
ing out it was incorrect about


the ownership issue.
"However," he said, "if they
still disagree for some reason,
we will always be willing to sit
down with them to find out
on what grounds they are tak-
ing that position. At this point
we have no reason to think
our paperwork is not in order
on this matter."

Wolfe told Moore.
Blindsided
According to the witness,
Wolfe then followed Moore
into the bedroom and found
her sitting in a chair. He came
up from behind and hit her
on the left side of the face so
hard she fell backward in the
chair. Her head slammed
onto the tile floor. ThenWolfe


grabbed Moore by the wrists,
dragged her into the kitchen
and got a large butcher knife.
Wolfe threatened to kill the
witness and his family if he
did not help him finish the
killing, the report stated. The
witness ran outside.
He heard Moore moaning.
He saw Moore's bloodied and
torn shirt. He saw the bloody
butcher knife on the kitchen
counter.
While the witness
watched, Wolfe got a shovel


and hit Moore twice in the
upper portion of her body
with the shovel.
The witness ran out of the
house.
The witness came back to
the house two days later.
Wolfe told him the body was
buried in the back yard.
The report also states that
Wolfe offered to kill two more
people that a relative wanted
dead.
He said he had no problem
killing them because he was


going back to prison for a
long time, anyway.
Moore was positively iden-
tified by the Sarasota County
Medical Examiner on Nov. 29
through dental records. The
ME ruled that Moore's inL
juries were consistent with a
stabbing. The ME also ruled
Moore's death a homicide by
sharp force trauma.

TRAFFIC from Paee lA


Quiet success
The need for a traffic light
at the Auburn and EastVenice
Avenue intersection was first
identified in January 2000,
but periodic testing didn't jus-
tify it, according to county
officials responsible for giving
the go-ahead with the signal-
ization project.
Even after the project was
tentatively OK'd, a backlog of
signal orders caused by hurri-
canes and other storms
throughout thb state and
region resulted in more delay.
That explanation for the de-
lays didn't jibe with Grimard.
"The county has been
dragging their feet. A couple
of years ago we forced the
county to do a survey. Of
course, they did it in July


when two-thirds of the popu-
lation isn't here," he said,
referring to the area's snow-
birds.
County officials said they
take that into account when
determining need.
The city of Venice lifted a
ban on new development in
the area in July 2004 after
county officials signed a deal
to make the improvements.
Recent negotiations be-
tween Waterford Companies,.
the city of Venice and Sara-
sota County resulted in a new
development agreement to
install the traffic light.
It became part of a-stipula-
tion for project development
around the Tuscany Com-
mons area. The stipulation
also limited development to a


degree.
Being practical
It's what Tom Slaughter,
planning and zoning director
for the city of Venice, called
one of the city's quiet success-
es in traffic management.
"From a technical stand-
point, the county said the
traffic signal was not warrant-
ed. We moved more on practi-
cal life-safety issues. We are
really depending on that light
being installed ... not just for
that intersection, but the
entire area."
As an arterial road, access
to EastVenice Avenue serves a
broader area, north through
Venice Palms and Sawgrass
developments up to where
Edmondson/Boarder roads


meet, and south into the
Venice Ranches area.
Grimard is happy that
Waterford developer Mike
Miller "stepped up to the
plate" to pay for the light.:
Miller will essentially fork
over additional money to pay
for the traffic light, with the
understanding he will get
reimbursed by the county at a
later date, Grimard said.
"There may very well have
been no further development
in the area unless there was
going to be a light there," he
added.
Numerous calls to Water-
ford Companies went unre-
turned.

The art of hiring is constantly being honed


The Gallup Organization gives Sarasota County

schools insight into hiring educators.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

For employers, the
chances of hiring someone
who does well in the inter-
view, and then does well on
the job, remains a crap shoot.
So, what do you do when
you have hundreds of posi-
tions to fill?
It's a dilemma faced annu-
ally by the Sarasota County
School Board.
To help hire the best teach-
ers fast, the district has been
requiring them to take an
online interview developed
by The Gallup Organization.
The district entered into a
contract with Gallup in 2005
to help it predict which candi-
dates have a better chance of


succeeding in the classroom.
It's giving a similar survey
to newly hired teachers to
help them pinpoint strengths
and potential weaknesses.
The TeacherInsight inter-
view was designed as a pre-
dictor of high achievement.
"We have not been able to
(confirm) that claim," said
Patricia Lucas, human re-
sources director, Sarasota
County School District.
Of 1,036 teacher applicants
the district is currently track-
ing, only 36 percent scored
more than a 67 percentile
ranking, Gallup's tipping
point for high achievers.
In 2005-06, 380 newly
hired classroom teachers in
county public schools were
required to complete the sur-


vey. Only half (49 percent)
scored higher than a 67.
During the current school
year, 157 newly hired teachers
took the test, with 48 percent
scoring more than 67, accord-
ing to a district officials.
As a predictor, school
board chairman Frank Ko-
vach, found the survey lack-
ing.
"I don't mean to be trite,
but I could flip a coin and be
50 percent (correct)," Kovach
said.
Still, Lucas sees value in
the Web-based interview,
calling it another useful
assessment tool in the hiring
process and in its arsenal to
measure educator effective-
ness.
She recommended the
school board contract with
Gallup for a third year at a
cost of $35,000.
The board approved the


contract Tuesday evening.

Interview
Gallup unveiled the Web-
based talent assessment sys-
tem in 2001. According to its
Web site, the system gives dis-
tricts a fast, effective system
to assess a large volume of
candidates.
The interview takes about
35 minutes to complete.
Results are returned to the
school district almost instan-
taneously.
Results include a per-
centile ranking that provides
the best prediction of the can-
didate's potential for teaching
success, based on the candi-
date's talent, states Gallup's
Web site.
Gallup claims the Teach-
erInsight interview is based
on more than 30 years of
research into selecting and
developing teachers.


The interview includes
statements that use a 1-5
Likert scale ("strongly agree"
to "strongly disagree"
responses), multiple-choice
items that reveal candidates'
attitudes, beliefs and behav-
iors, and open-ended ques-
tions that candidates answer
in their own words, according
to Gallup.
Gallup also offers training
for principals on who to inter-
view, and how to gain more
information about candi-
dates attitudes.

Confidential
District officials said the
interview results are confi-
dential, not even revealed to
candidates.
That's an important con-
sideration, and part of the
reason Sarasota County
School Board opted not to
participate in this year's state


merit-pay program.
Special Teachers Are
Rewarded merit-pay bonuses
would have rewarded the top
25 percent district teachers
under a plan drafted by dis-
trict staff.
The state offered Sarasota
County $2.3, million to fund
the program this year, and
threatened to punished dis-
tricts that don't participate by
withholding lottery funds in
the future.
The school board voted
down the draft plan Tuesday,
partly because some didn't
support a merit-pay plan that
only rewarded a select few.
Others were concerned the-

teacher rankings could
become public information.
That could pose a logistical
nightmare: a rush on schools
by parents who insist only the
best educators teach their
child.

Ballpark accord unanimously embraced by county, city officials


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

This one looked like a solid
hit in anyone's scorebook.
In a unanimous vote taken
during a break in Sarasota
County commissioners'
meeting Wednesday, city and
county commissioners adop-
ted an accord in which both
parties agreed to the follow-
ing goals:
Construct and operate a
sports facility to principally
serve the Cincinnati Reds
Increase availability and
inventory of recreation facili-
ties and pursue opportunities


for affordable workforce
housing
Continue collaborating to
achieve desired community
outcomes
Communicate with all
affected neighborhoods,
community groups, youth
sporting leagues and individ-
ual citizens to achieve their
goals and objectives
Sarasota City and county
officials called it a "memoran-
dum of understanding."
Residents hope to call it a
grand slam of tourism dollars,
affordable housing and a sig-
nificant upgrade of athletic
facilities for area youth.


Economic engine
Each party committed sig-
nificantly to the project. The
county pledged to allocate a
portion of the Tourist
Development Tax revenues,
estimated at between $10
million and $15 million,
toward construction of the
facility. The county also
agreed to help relocate the
Ringling Redskins a local
football team now operating
within the grounds of the pro-
posed facility to another
area.
Finally, the county accept-
ed responsibility for increas-
ing the availability and inven-


tory of recreation facilities,
including a North County
Sports Complex.
The city agreed to finance
at least $10 million of the pro-
ject's costs, -to secure annual
private sector investments of
$700,000 and purchase and
develop land for stadium
parking. The city also pledged
to execute a 30-year tease
with the Reds and fund all
project costs in excess of the
financial commitments of the
county, thepReds (who have
also promised to kick in $10
million) and the state of
Florida.
"Here you saw an exam-


ple of city and county staff
and attorneys and adminis-
tration working together as
we have not seen before,"
said County Commissioner
Shannon Staub, who shep-
herded the project with City
Commissioner Lou Ann
Palmer. "We think we've
ended up today with putting
a foundation in place. This
'memorandum of under-
standing' may not have all
the details everybody wants.
We're still hammering those
down. It will be followed by
an interlocal agreement
where we will include all the
details."


"This is not just about
baseball and a stadium," said
County Commissioner Joe
Barbetta. "It's also about a
world-class, multi-use sports
facility that's an economic
engine. It's going to bring in a
lot of revenue."
Barbetta added that rev-
enue would go a long way in
revitalizing the area around
the current Ed Smith Sta-
dium, which would include
the creation of affordable
housing.

Remember red tide?
Locals who want to get out
their wet suits this time of
year can head to the Gulf with
little reason to worry.
The five-month-long afflic-
tion of Karenia brevis algae
along southwestern Florida's
West Coast is petering out.
And gone, for the most
part, are the bouts of cough-
ing, sneezing and weeping
that come in on the tide.
Mote Marine Laboratory
reported on its Web site this
week that the red tide algae
was in "background" stages.
"The Karenia brevis red
tide bloom affecting the
Florida Gulf Coast has dimin-
ished to patchy distributions
of very low to none detected
all along the Southwest
Florida coast.
"Cell counts from Sarasota
County beaches on Monday,
Dec. 4, were very low, yet
above background at 13 of the
16 stations sampled," the Web
site said.
:,i.:,.it:, : very ,lo\, .. hardly
"fli'c tBleI"' said' Nadine Sli-
mak-of,-Mote Marine Labor-
atory in Sarasota' lst week.
"It's still detectable, but a lot
less so than before."
Far out
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute
noted in its latest report post-
ed Dec. 8 that, red tide was
"extremely patchy along the
Southwest Florida coast with
levels at most along shore
locations ranging from not
present to low."
However, it said "a small
area of medium concentra-
tion still exists near Gasparilla
,Pass," while the algae
remained "elevated at some
offshore areas, with low con-
centrations detected 22 to 24
miles offshore of Sarasota
County and medium concen-
trations detected approxi-
mately 15 miles north of Key
West."
Red tide is a bloom of
microscopic algae that typi-
cally occurs in the warmer
months along Florida's West
Coast. Red tide in high con-
centrations attacks the ner-
vous system of fish, causing
fish kills and contaminating
oysters, and clams. The mist
from the algae also can cause
watery eyes, coughing and
itchy throats in humans.
Slimak noted that while
red tide is usually a summer
phenomenon, there was an
outbreak early in 2005 that
stretched through much of
the year.
Patchy all along
This year's outbreak first
occurred in July in Collier and
Lee counties, then began to


creep far up the coast in
August.
The 2006 variety has been
an on-again, off-again bloom.
"It's been pretty patchy all
along," Slimak said.
This made it particularly
difficult for beachgoers to
determine when the obnox-
ious tide was in or out. The
movement of the algae is
affected by such conditions as
winds, tides and water cur-
rents; so while there might
have been no noticeable
effects one morning, the tide
might have rolled in by the
afternoon.
Mote is one of the principal
scientific organizations in the
world studying the causes,
movement and effects of
Karenia brevis toxin.
And, Slimak said, "The
important thing is that we
continue to do the studies
before,, during and after a
bloom."
To check out Mote's re-
search and get condition
reports, got to Mote's Web site:
www.mote.org.
The Red Tide Status Line is
also. available .for callers (oW
hear a recording detailing red
tide conditions throughout
the state. The recording is
updated each Friday by 5 p.m.
after sampling efforts for the
week have been completed
and analyzed. The number
for the red tide status line is

Housing fund aimed at promoting 'smart' growth


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


Sarasota County commis-
sioners unanimously en-
dorsed the advertisement of a
draft ordinance Tuesday to
set forth guidelines and
establish a program to allo-
cate money and resources
from the Housing Fund.
"The commissioners said
they wanted it to be simple
and concise," said Wendy
Thomas, manager of com-
munity housing, of the ordi-
nance she now must craft.
"It's going to provide a mech-


anism for what they're going
to spend the money on and a
little about what the process
is going to be."
The fund has grown to
$28 million as a result of the
sale of abandoned lots in
North Port. Of that amount,
the board has committed $5
million to the Sarasota
County School Board for the
development of schools in
North Port. An additional $3
million was earmarked for a
revolving loan fund for
households at or below the
median income to hook up
to central sewer and/or

OUR VIEW



New school board, same as the old board?


ou have to say one thing for the mem-
Y bers of the Sarasota County School
Board'- they aren't easily intimidated.
Generally, we consider that a good
thing, at least when a rational decision
based on solid evidence is being challenged
by people arguing more from emotion than
facts or logic.
That's how at this point we'd characterize
the appearance of the 20 or so teachers who
urged the board Tuesday not to retain Gary
Norris as, superintendent.
As we've opined before, Norris has a lot to
offer and is making the right noises about
addressing his shortcomings. On the whole,
we think it's the better course to try to keep
him here.
While the board shouldn't ignore reports
of low teacher morale, neither should it give
teachers a veto over board decisions cer-
tainly not without any more justification
than was offered Tuesday.
But there were two other issues at the
meeting on which we wish the board had
been more susceptible to outside influence:
a pay raise for itself and a merit bonus plan
for teachers.
Board members Frank Kovach, Kathy
Kleinlein and Carolyn Zucker (who was only


elected to the board in September) voted to
give themselves (as well as members Carol
Todd and Shirley Brown, who opposed it) a
nearly $3,000 a year raise. A board position
will pay $36,930 next year.
Board pay is controversial in the first
place. Many school boards are volunteer
positions, and many that pay offer far less
than Sarasota, which is among the top in the
country. So a raise just doesn't sit well to
begin with.
Then there is the board's record. Brown
and Zucker are new, but Kovach, Kleinlein
and Todd are coming off a year in which,
frankly, we don't think they did a very good
job.
The board failed to push Norris to
address lower than expected enrollment
numbers, then let him off too easy when the
revised figures led to layoffs after voters
had approved extending a 1-mill school tax
for four years. Another overprojection of
student enrollment means another $2 mil-
lion refund to the state this year.
They've also gone along with teacher
raises that have far outpaced inflation and
contributed to the need to dip into reserve
funds a practice the board has.criticized
but approved.


And the state of teacher morale is partly a
function of a board that has had too little
contact with the people in the front lines.
The board had a perfect opportunity
Tuesday to make a small but highly symbol-
ic gesture by rejecting a Florida School
Boards Association recommendation of a
raise. It would have earned the members a
lot of brownie points with taxpayers at very
little cost to them and none to the district -
and they blew it.
Then they compounded the error by
rejecting a state-mandated and state-fund-
ed plan to pay teachers a bonus based on
merit. It's one thing for management to
boost its own pay; it's another to do it right
before voting not to give its employees more
money and to do it right in front of them..
The state has not only told the school dis-
tricts they have to adopt a merit bonus plan,
but warned that a district that doesn't could
lose other state funding.
Merit bonuses were a part of NeXt
Generation, but the money for them would
have come only from county taxpayers. The
plan the board considered Tuesday involved
$2.3 million in state money and was devised
by a districtwide committee of teachers,
school administrators and central office


staff and Sarasota Classified/Teachers
Association leaders.
No matter the school board voted it
down. The impact: foregoing the $2.3 mil-
lion and possibly losing $2 million in lottery
funds.
Now, we see the board's thinking here.
Singling out some teachers for bonuses
alienates others, and a school that has a
higher number of recognized teachers
could face an avalanche of school choice
applications from parents who want the
best teachers for their children.
Those concerns, while somewhat valid,
don't outweigh the value of rewarding
teachers for achievement. They spend every
day distinguishing between the varying
capabilities of their. students; surely they
should be able to handle a similar evalua-
tion of their proficiency.
And choice is already pretty limited at
most schools. What's needed is better teach-
ers all around. Financial rewards based on
merit would provide an incentive for
improvement.
There have been references to this being
a "new" school board because .it has two
recently elected members. So far it doesn't
look very new to us.


Notes from



another year



in paradise


MARY KAY RUPPEL
COLUMNIST


Hi, everybody:
Well, another year here in
paradise has flown by.
The good news was that
we didn't have any hurri-
canes. Last year I was able to
regale you about the close call
we had here in Venice. This
year just about everyone pur-
chased expensive hurricane
shutters and all sorts of elab-
orate protection only to have
it go to waste.
The nice thing is that this
year there will be a lot of
canned foods to donate to
needy families.
Because of a pressing per-
sonal matter I found it neces-
sary to resign my position as
secretary of the Republican
Club of South Sarasota Coun-
ty. If you ever want to have a
wake-up call about your
importance, resign from a job
and just see how quickly you
can be replaced and for-
gotten.
2006 was a big political
year with a primary election
in September, followed by the
general election in No-
vember. I like being involved
in politics because then I
have a right to complain if my
choices don't win. If you don't
participate, then you should
keep your mouth shut.
Anyway, I was really teed
off in the District 13 Con-
gressional race when one
candidate made some very
personal attacks against an-
other candidate. The late
President Ronald Reagan's
llth Commandment in poli-
tics is that one does not diss a
fellow party member pub-
licly. I'll shut up about politics
now, but that was a major
part of my year.
Writing my column has
made 2006 a wonderful and
fulfilling year for me and I
appreciate the praise and
support I've received from so
many readers.
On the other hand, a


columnist must develop a
thick skin so as not to be too
upset by critics. I particularly
do not like having my veraci-
---ty- attacked. Oh-- yes; that-
means honesty. Remember,
you can disagree without be-
ing disagreeable.
We have 150 clowns on
display in Sarasota, and no, I
am not still talking about pol-
itics. They are actually hand-
crafted clowns placed on
streets to amuse us.
Some people don't like
them because they think they
are not representative of any-
thing pertinent to us. Last
year we had pigs in Venice, so
fI think it's a definite improve-
ment. Two of them have
already been stolen, so you
know someone likes them.
Christmas letters are often
used to brag about expensive
new possessions, trips to
wonderful places and the
brilliant accomplishments of
your offspring. This year I
purchased health, homeown-
ers and car insurance. I took a
five-day cruise to Bermuda,
where my accommodations
were adequate, the food edi-
ble.
(I commented on how
smooth-riding the ship was.
Somebody said, "Do you
think that's because we're still
tied up at the dock?" Nobody
would let me forget that com-
ment for the rest of the
cruise.)
The entertainment could
not begin to compare with
our local Silver Foxes, which
by the way, I have joined
again this year.
Our really big show will be
in March, and .maybe you'll
see me if you don't blink. As
for the offspring, let's just say
that no one got arrested.
It is sad that the real mean-
ing of Christmas has been
overlaid by sentimental var-
nish and commercial dust,
not to mention all the dissen-
sion concerning displays ex-
pressing the real meaning of
Christmas.
Let me end this letter with
a quote from A Christmas
Carol: "There's a song in the
air! There's a star in the sky.
There's a mother's deep
prayer and a baby's low cry!
And the star shines its fire
where the beautiful sing, for
the manger of Bethlehem
cradles a king."

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Next generation knows what counts


Editor:
I am a member of the Myspace/MTV Generation. I have my
views, I support my causes and I vote, but beyond that my
political activism is nil.
Every day of an election year, I am bombarded with TV ads,
newspaper articles and billboards announcing that the major-
ity of the young public that can vote does not. In the wake of
such vicious campaigns across the country, it is no wonder.
But I am not interested in talking about that. What I am
interested in talking about is the tens of thousands of college
students and young Americans across the country, who don't
just vote, but dedicate their lives to making sure everyone else
does too.
When the politicians of today are gone, they will leave this
country to these young hopefuls, who unlike the present mem-
bers of government, have not yet been jaded by years of failed
campaigns, the controversy surrounding corrupt government
and the reality of modern politics.
These kids are truly patriotic. They care about their country
without reward, without the spotlight and without recognition.
The majority of them are not paid.
My parents raised me to believe that it doesn't matter if you
win or lose, it is how you play the game. I just hope that mes-
sage still rings true, and that even if one's choice didn't make
office this time around, that people know their hard work,
determination, loyalty and, above all else, their vote, is still
important, and still counts.

Shady Haven needs
some certainty
Editor:
During the recent rezoning
petition Shady Haven was
cast in a very negative light. It
was characterized as a "shab-
by" mobile home park that
"everyone agrees is on its last
legs."
This cannot be true
because I and many others do
not agree. Shady Haven is not
shabby and should not be on
its last legs.
When I first visited Shady
Haven in 2003, it was a


vibrant, well-maintained, at-
tractive place to live. So much
so that within a half hour I
purchased a home. Residents
take pride in their homes,
keeping them attractive and
modem.
Some owners completely
gutted the shells, spending
thousands of dollars on new
flooring, walls and ceilings,
replacing wiring, plumbing
and fixtures, modernizing
bathrooms and kitchens and
filling them with new furnish-
ings.
On the outside, banners


and flags flutter, welcome
signs abound, lush shrubs
flourish and colorful flowers
bloom. When units went up
for sale, most sold quickly.
Even what might be the least
desirable unit was rented
twice since 2004.
All of these activities con-
tinued until September 2005.
It was at this time that the res-
idents were told that the park
would be sold in late March
2007, with eviction to follow
during September 2007.
Overwhelmed by the un-
certainty, many owners pan-
icked. They signed over the
title to their homes, aban-
doned valuable property
without recompense, sought
other living arrangements
and moved out. So, yes, today
there are many vacant
homes.
If the park had a more
secure future, perhaps for as
little as three years, these
units would soar in value.

You have to know
when to fold 'em
Editor:
Seems Christine Jennings
missed a very important les-
son when she was growing up
- how to lose gracefully.
Now, I don't know if she has
just never lost at anything in
her life (seems unlikely) or if
she is just a sore loser any
time she loses, but now would
be a good time for her to show
some grace and admit defeat


and move on.

Catherine Barrett
Englewood
Technology
would make
rodeo safer

Editor:
I recently watched the
rodeo on TV I watched a cow-
boy get stomped by a bronc.
It occurred to me that
someone should develop a
remote-control device that
would release the cowboy's
hand when he got in trouble.
Another device could be used
to release the strap at the
horse's groin.
The horse or bull seems
strong enough to carry the
heavy batteries that would be
required for the strong mag-
net that would be needed,
don't you think?

Europe can leam
a lesson from us
Editor:
In Sarasota, on Dec. 3,
more than 700 voters attend-
ed a rally asking for a revote in
our 13th Congressional dis-
trict. The electronic machines
were given a vote of no-confi-
dence by the gathering and
paper ballots were favored.
One of the speakers, Rev.
Charles MacKenzie, com-
pared us to Martin Luther as
he stood up to a corrupt
church centuries ago.

Was grease the word in undervote?


No-armed bandits. Any slot machine player could tell you
what caused part of our touch-screen election problems. After
touching your finger to the screen maybe 50 times or more for
one ballot with the 25 or 28 screens, a film of grease or oil starts
to build up on the screen like a fingerprint. After only a few vot-
ers, this film can start to interfere with the computer's ability to
detect a finger contact and register a selection. The computer
can't sense the voter's touch, which normally interrupts a cur-
rent across the screen. This interruption normally tells where
on the screen contact was made. Too much film, no contact.
The screens were never cleaned, and we poll workers had no
instructions to clean the screen. The slot machine connection?
The same thing happens to the slot machine screens. We use a
handkerchief to keep them clean, and sometimes that isn't
enough. If you think about it, I believe this is one of the prob-
lem-causers there.


Save it. I'm in favor of sav-
ing the Venice Circus Arena if
it can be done without tax-
payer money. I would love to
see that come back to life and

joy and pleasure to the citi-
zens of the Venice area. I think
/:it's something very special
and can be a real, real asset to
people who live here full time

children. If you need a sitter,

It was the GOP. I hope all
those people who received
numerous calls before the
election understand that
these calls were not I re-
peat, not made by the
Christine Jennings campaign.
They were paid for by the
National Republican Cam-
paign Committee on behalf of
Vern Buchanan. The Repub-
lican Party used these calls all
over the United States to
annoy and mislead people.
There seems to be no end to
the sleaze and Republican
dirty tricks. Unfortunately, as
long as they work, these tac-
tics will continue. Also, if a
revote is called for, an absen-
tee ballot should be sent to
everyone who voted in the
election. The people who
voted by absentee ballot
before could be excluded
from voting again. It would
make no sense to use the
same machine that caused
the problem to revote. Voting
by absentee ballot will, create
a paper trail.
Bad ballot. This is my take
on the undervote in the con-


gressional race. When I voted,
I found that the election for
Congress was on a page well
into the selections and I
noticed that my eye went
down past it to the governor's
race, which had many candi-
dates. I voted on that and
then my eye caught that there
was the congressional race on
the top of the page and went
back up there and made my
vote. When I did my review,
that vote was recorded. I think
many people did the same
thing. They skipped over it,
and didn't realize it. And
unless they did the review,
they would have missed out
on that vote. Two other rea-
sons might be that many peo-
ple were fed up with the mud-
slinging, personal attacks by
Jennings against Buchanan
and Buchanan's automated
phone calls and couldn't
come to vote for either one of
them. I suspect more
Republicans didn't vote
because they were unhappy
with the phone calls. I believe
that's the reason for the high
undervote, and I think
Sarasota voters got a lot more
calls than those in the other
counties. Someone should
probably check that.
Separation. I agree there
should be designated smok-
ing areas at local beaches.
100 percent. I'm calling
about designated smoking
areas on the beach. I'm in
favor of that 100 percent
because that's what other
jurisdictions have done
around the country.
Ban or zone. Yes, I support
the ban on smoking on the
beaches or having designated
areas so we don't have butts
all over the beach.

VENICE GONDOLIER SUN 11A


The first great Florida land boom


DEREK DUNN-RANKIN



It was late in the winter or
the earlj spring of 1936 when
my brothers and I shook off
the snow and slush of Long
Island and arrived in bright
sunshine at the Flagler Street
train station in downtown
Miami.
Our grandmother, who
had been caring for us, had
her 8-, 6- and 5-year-old
grandsons decked out in high
socks and corduroy knickers,
which our mother quickly
exchanged for short pants.
Miami was as big, crowded

and permanent-looking as
any home we had known. We
had no idea that only 40 years
earlier, Fort Dallas was no
more than a handful of
homesteaders taking a crack
at raising oranges and lem-
ons.
It was Henry Flagler who
changed Fort Dallas to the
Indian name of Miami when
he decided to create a city on
Biscayne Bay. His wealth,
confidence, vision and deter-
mination led to one of the


first great Florida land booms.
Flagler was John D. Rocke-
feller's partner in the found-
ing of Standard Oil and one
America's richest men. To
protect his frail wife's health,
in 1878 he started taking win-
ter vacations in Jacksonville.
After her death he remar-
ried and journeyed a few
miles farther south to the vil-
lage of St. Augustine, where in
1885, he had discovered "par-
adise." He decided to build a
luxury hotel. From then on
Florida was his passion.
During the next 28 years
his bold investments trans-
formed Florida's East Coast.
The 570-room Ponce DeLeon
Hotel is now the home of
Flagler College.
To get to St. Augustine, vis-
itors could get off the train in
Jacksonville and go by boat
down the Halifax River to St.
Augustine. Flagler bought up
railroad rights of way granted
by earlier legislatures and
secured the gift of millions of
additional state acres in
exchange for building a stan-
dard gauge railway down the
eastern coast.
After building in St. Au-
gustine, he visited the fishing
village of Palm Beach across
from Lake Worth. This, he
declared, was the real par-
adise.
By 1894 he had extended
his railroad to the west side of
the lake and begun work on
the largest wooden structure
in the world, the 1,100-room
Royal 'Poinciana Hotel. In


1901 he crossed the lake to
the beach and built the
Breakers. It later burned and
was replaced by the present
Breakers.
The big freeze of 1895
ruined much of the agricul-
tural community of mid-
Florida. Julia Tuttle, who had
a Fort Dallas trading post on
the Miami River and dreamed
of creating a city, sent Flagler
some orange blossoms as
proof of the tropical climate.
In trying to persuade him to
extend the railroad, she
promised more than orange
blossoms, offering half her
homestead as further induce-
ment.
If you have tried to start a
building project of late, you
might find this hard to
.believe. Ten months after
receiving the orange blos-
soms, the Florida East Coast
Railway had been extended
from West Palm Beach to the
Miami River. A year later they
were dredging the harbor to
create a deep-water port
where cruise ships now berth.
A power company that be-
came Florida Power and Light
had been started to furnish
electricity to a new hotel.
Flagler went on to do the
impossible and run his rail-
way across great open
stretches of the Gulf of Mex-
ico, to Key West, but that is
another story.

ker, came from Chicago to
Florida 20 years ago and
operated Realty Quest in Port
Charlotte with 14 agents until
recently. She plans to open a


realty referral office at the
CPE location. Call 485-3050.

Bradway going global with Sky


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS COLUMNIST

Richard Bradway & Asso-
ciates of Venice has announc-
ed a co-listing initiative with
Sky Sotheby's International
Realty of Sarasota.
"I think it is going to be a
good market in 2007, and this
is an opportunity for a small-
town company to better serve
its customers working togeth-
er with a global entity," said
Bradway, who co-owns the
brokerage with his wife,
Linda.
Bradway entered the local
real estate business 35 years
ago, launching Bradway,
,Moore & Associates in Venice.
Linda, a Venice High School
graduate, management spe-
cialist and licensed broker,
joined the company, which
was acquired by Coldwell
Banker in 1996.
In 2004 the Bradways
chose to bring their home-
town service back to Venice
with Richard Bradway &
Associates, opening a small
office on Nokomis Avenue.
Within 12 months they had
acquired an additional office
on Venice Avenue.
Growing to 30 associates,
they opened new offices at
230 South Tamiami Trail,
Venice.
Although primarily in the
residential market, he also
handles commercial real
estate and has recently closed
a sale on Superior Heating's

Global exposure
Clients will have their con-
dominiums and homes mar-
keted to European and other.
international buyers, where
the value of currencies makes
U.S. properties very attrac-
tive.
"We see it as an opportuni-
ty to expand our services in
marketing with global expo-
sure," said Bradway, who
acknowledged he has been
considering such a move for
several months. "We are not
partners we are teaming
up with Sky Sotheby to better
serve specific properties."
"Sky Sotheby's is a first-
class operation which has
done a lot in a short time, and
has a great name" Bradway
said. "Together, this is going
to benefit the whole concept
we offer in Venice, something
we have not been able to offer
in the past."
Teaming up with Sky


Sotheby's through this joint
venture will enable both
companies to do business on
selected properties. There will
be no name change; however
Sco-listed' properties may
carry both Bradway and Sky
Sotheby's names.
"It was a sellers' market;
now it is a buyers' market,
and we have got to have more
exposure," Bradway said.
"Sotheby's will help us put
selected Venice properties in
the global market"
"Dick Bradway has an
impeccable reputation," said
Chad Roffers, president of Sky
Sotheby's. "The ability to col-
laborate with him is just a
great opportunity. The rela-
tionship is consistent with
our philosophy that entails
marketing places for each
and every customer wherever
they reside."

TAKE CARE to build




new office in Venice


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


TAKE CARE took a big step
toward opening a new office
with the demolition of a
building at 600 The Rialto,
south of Venice. Regional
Medical Center.
"I'm very excited," said
Suzanne Wise, owner and
executive administrator of
the home health-care pro-
vider. "We are all ready for the
transition to this location in
Mid-April."
It will be a major expan-
sion, from 800 to 2,300 square
feet. The one-story Mediter-
ranean-style building with
paver-brick sidewalks will
blend in to the island archi-
tecture.
In a safe location, the new
office will be built to hurri-
cane standards and have its
own generator.
The Venice office opened
in 1997 at 206 South Harbor
Drive South, with both ad-
ministrative and health care
personnel. TAKE CARE ac-


quired the private Bon Se-
cours home health agency
and grew the business signifi-
cantly in other avenues, caus-
ing it to be bursting out of its
space.
Wise said she wanted to
stay on the island. Being dose
to Venice Regional Medical
Center has advantages for
pedestrian traffic stopping at
the hospital and for her staff
to visit clients in the hospital
at a moment's notice.
"It is a wonderful opportu-
nity for us to work close to
VRMC and to treat them as
neighbors," said Wise.
TAKE CARE also needed
more space for training facili-
ties for certified nursing assis-
tants and home help aides.
Classes now done off-site will
take place in the new loca-
tion, offering education in
long-term care to expand the
ability to promote aging in
place. Classes could even be
opened up to people in the
community, according to
Wise.
A registered nurse, she


came from Michigan to Sara-
sota to pursue her love of
home health care.
Eleven years ago she
opened TAKE CARE of Sara-
sota with four employees and
now employs more than 600
health care staff in her com-
panies.
TAKE CARE's service area
stretches north to Ellenton
and south to Punta Gorda.
TAKE CARE TRANSPORT,
with nonemergency medical
transport vans, was intro-
duced in 2000.
Clinical Director and
Nurse Manager Terry Kauf-
man, RN, will operate the
office. Wise anticipates
spending one day weekly in
Venice.
It has 125 employees in-
cluding registered nurses, li-
censed practical nurses,
physical therapists, certified
nursing assistants, home
health aides and compan-
ions. The agency expects to
expand because of its new
visibility, referrals and ex-
panding clientele base.

when it wasn't."

heard in a crowd.

cate, and she will be terribly

Lots of

football


openings

And the list of area football
coaching stepping down
keeps growing...
Add longtime Mooney
mentor Mike Dowling to the
list. He announced Thursday
he will no longer be head
coach.
That makes three in a row
North Port's Mike Steele,
Venice's Nick Coleman, and
nowDowling.
We have gotten emails
about other openings at-
Hernando High in Brooksville
and at the Canterbury School
in St. Petersburg.
We're sure there's many
others out there.
Let the interviewing begin

SORRY, ANDY In Wed-
nesday's story about Nick
Coleman resigning we had a
line in about how he replaced
Andy Siegal. We stated that
Siegal got the boot for disci-
plinary reasons.
As it turns out, that wasn't
totally accurate. Siegal was,
suspended for reportedly get-
ting in a tussle with a student.
He ended up resigning his
post.
Therefore, he wasn't offi-
cially booted.
Siegal left Venice and
coached at Dodge City Com-
munity College for a few
years. Then he left to coach at
the College of the Sequoias in
California.
He still keeps in touch with
former players and coaches
like Coleman.
He wishes Coleman the
best in his future endeavors.
Wonder if Siegal wants to i
apply for the Venice opening? I
WAY TO GO STAZ We
hear Jason Staszewski is get-
ting back into baseball.
"Staz" was a key infielder
and pitcher for Venice High,
graduating in 2005.
He went to Daytona Beach
Community College but did-
n't last .long there, coming
home.
But Staszewski wasn't
ready to call it quits. Seems he
got a tryout at Pasco-Her-
nando and will be pitching for
the Conquistadors.

Some losses are harder to take than
others.
TakeWednesday night's girls soccer
match between Venice and visiting St.
Petersburg Catholic.
For most of the match, the two
sides battled evenly in a light rain.
Then with just under two minutes
to go, it happened. On an end-to-end
break, St. Pete Catholic's Samantha
Comier dribbled the ball past the dive
ofVenice keeper Diana Lambrecht.
Final score: St. Pete Catholic 3,
Venice 2.
"We got beat one-on-one," Venice
coach Sheldon Chamberlain said. "It
happened three times. It was a good


match. They were a little better."
Venice.saw its record dip to 7-3-2.
Catholic improved to 9-5-1.
The match saw Venice grab an
early lead, then fall behind, then even
the count again before the late break
decided it.
Melanie Murphy gave Venice a 1-0
with a pretty goal 10 minutes in.
Catholic was able to tie it at the 19-
minute mark as Casey McKeon split
two defenders on a break.
It stayed 1-1 at halftime.
St. Pete took a 2-1 lead six minutes
into the second half, as McKeon sent a
low skipper with her left foot that
eluded Lambrecht.
Venice fought hard for the equaliz-
er. Emily Cremisio got it with 19 min-
utes left. She first headed the ball


toward the net. The defense kicked it
back out to her. She lined an 18-yarder
to the back of the net to make it 2-2.
Venice kept up the pressure, look-
ing to steal the W,
-Both Cremisio and Rose had back-
to-back golden opportunities with 12
minutes remaining.
Then, St. Pete gave a scare, but
Lambrecht came up with a big save
with four minutes left.
She laid out and tipped the ball off
the post with her outstretched hand.
Once again, Venice took the play to
St. Pete.
But McKeon took a pass from Vivi
Ycaza and converted, spoiling an
excellent Lady Indian effort.
The Venice junior varsity (9-2-1)
played a strong match against a tal-


ented St. Pete bunch. The Lady
Indians won 1-0 on Casey Martin's
second half goal.
The Venice teams are at home
'Friday night with Port Charlotte com-
ing to town.
The varsity defeated Port Charlotte
2-0 earlier in he season.
The varsity will be playing in the
9th annual Sarasota High Girls
Holiday Classic from Dec. 21-23. The
Lady Indians will play in the Premier B
Division.
Venice opens at 4 p.m. on
Thursday, Dec. 21, against Plant High.
At 10 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 22,
Venice plays Cocoa Beach.
At 4 p.m., the Lady Indians take on
Melbourne Central Catholic.


Swanson puts best foot forward


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


It's easy to see why Kristen
Swanson stands out from the
rest at a given high school
girls soccer match.
She has the moves, the leg,
the spirit and the hustle.
At sweeper, Swanson is a
two-way mainstay for the
Venice High Lady Indians,
She must first help keep the
other team from forming an
attack.
The junior is also like a
point guard, helping set up
the offense.
Her long-range foot makes
her a scoring threat from 30-
yards on in.
It didn't happen by acci-
dent. Swanson took a liking to
soccer at the tender age of 7.
"There were a lot: of nights
kicking the ball in the back
yard with dad," said Swanson
of father Bill.


Swanson first played in the
YMCA leagues. She remem-
bers enjoying playing 3V3
travel ball when she was 11.
By the time she was 12,
Swanson was ready for com-
petitive league ball. She first
played with the Manatee
Magic before moving over to
the Braden River Rage.
Swanson still plays com-
petitive ball to keep her game
sharp. Competitive soccer
runs from August up to
October. Several other Lady
Indians also play with the
Rage.
Swanson started as a fresh-
man at Venice High not
something every player can
say. She ,was moved from
stopper to sweeper last year.
The VHS girls came within
a whisker of making the
regional tournament, as
Manatee scored twice in the
final minute of their district
semifinal to steal the spot.


"I still have dreams .about
it," Swanson admitted.
She says the team is shoot-
ing to win districts this year.
Even second place would.get
the girls to the regionals.
"We lost six seniors who.
started," Swanson said. "We
only have one senior this year.
We have a lot of good young
players moving up. The level
of our players is excellent."
By. her senior year,
Swanson would like to see the
Lady Indians make a run at
states.
Although she is a very tal-
ented player, Swanson.is not
thinking about taking her
game to the collegiate level.
"'I would like to become a
doctor," said the 4.0 GPA
honor student.
There are other young ath-
letes in the Swanson famil: r
Sister Kimbertt, 10, iinr' '
gymnastics. Brother Daniel, 8, suN PHOTOB r' ,CLADEL-EV *J,,
loves soccer. Kristina Swanson is Venice's fine junior sweeper-


Inshore gulf teeming with life


PHO I UCOUU I EY UI- AV- HACK
Bonita were running Monday at the Venice Jetty.


Sunday, Monday and Tues-
day it looked like the good old
days.
Sunday, there were three
layers of breaking fish just off
of the beaches.
Some were inside the
sandbar, others were out
about another hundred yards
and others were out about a
quarter of a mile.
Hundreds and hundreds of
pelicans, sea gulls and terns
were diving and gorging
themselves on the bait that
was driven to the top by the
predators.
The list of known fish were
jacks (all sizes), bonita (5-to-
10 pounders), ladyfish, mack-
eral and some redfish and
bluefish.
There were also huge
schools of mullet (all sizes).
Some of the jacks were big,
enough to eat the smaller
mullet.
The inshore gulf is also
loaded with schools of vari-


- "






MR. SHEEPSHEAD
(Ui tIMNIT

ous sized rays.
I think that the next cold
front will put an end to this
wonderful fishing.
The reason is that the bait
(greenbacks, glass minnows
and mullet) will migrate to
warmer waters.
The good news is that each
time we get a cold front, we
will get closer and closer to
sheepie season.
I understand that the red-
fish bite is still on at Lemon
Bay.


Tuesday morning, I finally
remembered to take my fish-
ing gear with me to the jetty.
The problem was, I missed
the hot fishing by about an
hour.
I did manage to cast into a,
school of medium-sized mullet
My lure settled to the bot-
tom and wham, a big jack
slammed it.
I actually never saw this
fish, but I did see a school of
10-14 pound jacks in the
same area.
I lost the fish and half of
my line to this monster.
Please e-mail me your
inshore fishing stories and/or
pictures.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, the time has come to say
goodbye until next week.
Try to attend a few of my
local fishing seminars.

Hack can be contacted at

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.

Goodwill goes modular for affordable housing


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

As the final section of the
modular home was raised
slowly off the ground by a
giant crane swaying in the
chill wind, the small crowd
applauded enthusiastically.
"I am very, very excited,"
said Laura Carter, Goodwill
Industries-Manasota Inc.
GoodHomes Project Mana-
ger. "We are the first nonprof-
it to bring a modular home to
the market place for afford-
able housing."
The new two-piece modu-
lar home at 101 Emerald
Lane, Nokomis, was being
erected exactly one month
after being ordered from
Precision Homes of Ocilla,


Ga. Sixty feet long with three
bedrooms, two baths and
1,153 square feet of space, it is
priced at $208,000 with up to
$75,000 in down-payment
assistance to qualifying buy-
ers.
Manufactured homes av-
erage from the mid-$100,000s
to $1.2 million, said Skip
Schoeppel, Precision Homes
district sales manager. These
homes meet all the same
codes and standards as site-
built wood frame homes, and
as construction is in a factory,
everything stays dry through-
out the process.
There's a waiting list of 50
people already approved for a
mortgage who are looking
forward to the opportunity to
take ownership. Goodwill


Industries Home Buyers Club
prepares people for home
ownership from beginning to
the end and has more than
500 members.
GoodHomes is one of the
organizations to receive fund-
ing from Sarasota County and
City Housing & Community
Development.
"We provided GoodHomes
with a mortgage on this prop-
erty for a 0-percent interest
preferred loan repayable
when sold to a first-time
home buyer," said Jane
Hindall, program manager
with Sarasota County & City
Office of Housing & Com-
munity Development. "More
than 150 similar projects
operate in Sarasota County
with nonprofits, but thou-


sands of down payments and
mortgages have been
arranged for first-time home
buyers."
GoodHomes has received
more than $10 million to fund
60 projects and has given
away $2 million down pay-
ment assistance.
"Our plans for future
include acquiring 20 lots in
Warm Mineral Springs,
North Sarasota County and
North Port, having received
$1 million from the state,"
said Carter. "We have hous-
es we are preparing for
rehab in South Venice and
Nokomis."
Each property is part of the
Community Land Trust with
a 99-year land lease that will
keep it affordable.

Giving inspires

There aren't many advan-
tages to being ill, but I found
one, recently, when I trudged
home with a sinus infection,
fell onto the sofa, wrapped
myself in an afghan and
turned on the Oprah show.
Oprah, with the help of Bank
of America, had given mem-
bers of a previous studio audi-
ence $1,000 each to make a dif-
ference in their communities.
One woman turned the
$1,000 into $71,410 to help a
family whose father has a
brain tumor. A mother and
daughter pooled their money
to buy tennis shoes for 425
elementary students in the
daughter's school. When a
shoe company donated all of
the shoes, the teacher used
the opportunity to teach her
students the joy of giving. She
organized a walk-a-thon to
benefit a local children's hos-
pital. The students raised
$63,000. And a pair of sisters
used their seed money to
raise $200,000 for My Sister's
House a shelter for bat-
tered women and children.
It was a riveting, inspiring
show.
As I lay on the sofa sipping
Lemon Lift tea, I thought
about the past year and ry
life now. I had been out of a
job and homeless. I use that
word loosely because thanks
to the generosity of family
and friends, I have never
spent a night under a bridge
or in a cardboard box warm-
ing my hands over an open
fire. But I know what it's like to
have to give up your home.
After a year, I finally found
a full-time job. Unfortunately,
the bills had continued to
accumulate during my un-
employment and occasional
part-time work. Now, I'm liv-
ing with a friend until I can
rent a place of my own.
Generosity seemed a re-
mote possibility as I lay on that
sofa and tried to think through
the fog of infection. I didn't
have much to give. Every
penny is going to pay bills.
That's when I remembered
the pennies, nickels, dimes
and quarters accumulating in
a Pepperidge Farm Pirouette
can in my bedroom. For some
time, I've been a practitioner
of not spending my change. It
has bailed me out more than
once. For instance, after I'd
paid the bills and there was
no money left for gas, I took
my can of coins to the coin-
counting machine. There was
enough change to fill the car
with gas and buy food for the
next week.
I know panic, despair and
humiliation.
Last year I couldn't afford
Christmas gifts for family and
friends. My gifts were cleaning
their houses, doing their dishes
or babysitting for them.
This year I am blessed. It
seemed like a good time to
share my change. So when I
walked by the Salvation Army
bell ringer, I dumped the
coins from my change can
into the little red kettle. It felt
good to make someone's holi-
day a little brighter even in
this small way.
Now when I go to bed, I
don't fall asleep counting
debts. Instead, I count my
blessings and dream of the
smile on another woman's
face who can buy food, or gas
or a toy for her child.
It wasn't $1,000 and I'm not
Oprah, but giving is good -
whatever the amount.


It's the giving


season in Venice


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Barrels of toys have been
filled these past few weeks
and many Venetians have
selected one or more names
from the many angel trees
scattered around the area.
It's that time of year when
people dig a little deeper into
their wallets to make sure that
every child is gifted during the
holiday season.
Stories about the annual
Marine Toys for Tots cam-
paign and the Salvation Army
Christmas program are fea-
tured on this page today.
These are the most obvious of
the good things that go on
Near after year in Venice and
elsewhere at holiday time.
But there is much more
happening behind the scenes
in Venice. Santa Claus (alias
Ronald Gillis) mentioned a
few of the unknown elves
about town.
Last week Thursday, Gillis
and the MainStreet mer-
chants distributed treats to
children during the holiday


walk on the avenues.
Kay and Nancy and John
over at Ophelia's Restaurant
in Nokomis have been quietly
taking care of children in
need.
A lady who wished to
remain anonymous literally
filled our lenice Gondolier
Sun Toys for Tots barrel to the
very brim.
Over at theVenice Regional
Medical Center. every depart-
ment has adopted a family for
the holidays. On Dec. 22, the
gifts will be blessed and then
distributed to the families. In
years past, families have
received piles of presents,
including bicycles for the
children and clothing for
mom and dad. No one is left
out.
Dentist Donald Lackey, his
associate Andrew Swenson
and their staff have an office
filled with major toys as they
do every year. In exchange for
a toy valued at $60 or more,
patients were entitled to a free
cleaning. By last week, the

A tree of angels brings gifts of joy to area children


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER


Every holiday season, the
Salvation Army enlists the
help of angels. An angel can
be anyone who wants to help
make a struggling family's
holiday a little brighter.
At varying merchants and
places of business through-
out Venice, the Salvation
Army has posted its annual
allotment of Angel Trees.
Angel Trees are part of a
program that helps needy


families in the general Ven-
ice/North Port area. The pro-
gram begins each year in
October, when families that
need a little help with the hol-
idays sign up their children.
The children's names are
placed on tickets and as-
signed a number. The tickets
are placed on Christmas trees
ranging in size from 15 to 60
inches. Trees are placed with
businesses that request them
and anyone spotting a tree
can select a ticket and buy the
requested gift for that child.


Tickets list the first name of
the child, gender, clothing
sizes and wants and needs for
Christmas. Needs are usually
clothing, anything from jeans
or coats to underwear and
socks. Wants are what the
child most desires for Christ-
mas. Each child is asked what
he or she would like, and,
however grandiose, the want
is listed on the child's ticket.
Purchased gifts are taken from
the tree sites to the Salvation
Army for distribution.
Debbie Johns is the assis-


tant senior program leader
for the Salvation Army in
Venice. This is her second
year as administrator of the
Angel Tree program. She said
many program participants
have purchased bikes, which
were wanted by many of the
children.
Dec. 21, the Salvation
Army in Venice opens up its
Toy Shop. Parents and
guardians of children partici-
pating in the program go and

Delivering meals and marriage


BY CHRISTY ARNOLD
STAFF WRITER


Rachael Wolf and Randy
Matthew met in August.
Their relationship quickly
heated up from their first
lunch date at McDonald's.
Dec. 9 Rachael walked
down the aisle and married
Randy.
"You gotta act real quick
when you're in your 80s," said
Randy, of North Port. "You
never know what tomorrow's
gonna bring."
Randy, 82, met his bride on
Aug. 20. He was assigned to
deliver Meals on Wheels with
Rachael, the older, more-
experienced volunteer.
"I thought he was neat,"
Rachael, 83, said. "He was
wonderful with the people.
He didn't have a temper if we
got lost .... He was just super.
Then he asked me to eat
lunch."
They went to McDonald's.
"Then, he started courting
me," she said with a giggle.
The last time Rachael
dated, it was called courting.
Rachael first married Fred,
a union that lasted 60 years.
Fred died three years ago.
Randy also married at a'
younger age. He and Rita were
married for 58 years. She died
two years ago.
"We got a lot of years
between us," said Rachael, of
Englewood.
After their spouses died,
Rachael and Randy found
themselves living alone for
the first time in decades.
"It's a lonely house when
you're by yourself," Randy
*said.' "I guess because-you're-
used to having someone

around ... you turn on the TV
just to hear noise."
He will have more noise
around the house now.
"Even when you're riding
in the car, it's nice to have
someone to talk to," he said.
'Crazy happy'
Rachael more like a high
school girl in love than an
elderly woman with five
great-grandkids enjoys the
newfound companionship.
"It's nice to hug and I won't
say what else," Rachael gig-
gled. "We have fun."
The two wed at the Venice
Bible Church. She wasn't
wearing white.
"No way," she said.
Her dress was "long and
shiny," she said.
Randy wore a suit.
All but one of their kids
attended. About 30 friends
and relatives joined.the new-
lyweds for dinner at Olde


World Restaurant in North
Port.
"We're pretty happy about
it crazy happy," Rachael
said. "We have a lot of fun. We
act like we're 16."
They spent their honey-
moon at DisneyWorld.
"We're not telling where
we're going Saturday night,
because my sons will get
there and short-sheet the
bed," Rachael said.
Rachael, who quickly
smiles and holds up her left
hand to show her new gold
diamond ring, said she and
Randy plan to continue vol-
unteering for Meals on
Wheels when they return
from their honeymoon.
"I wouldn't let any other
woman ride with him,"
Rachael said.

Black currants are tasty alternative to fish oil


5B
DEC. 15,2006


News Channel 8 holiday blood drive Dec. 20


/J


SUZY COHEN, R.PH.
COLUMNIST


Q: I have heard that fish oil is
good for heart health, but when
I eat fish, my throat starts to
close and I'm certain that I'm
allergic to seafood. Will fish oil
supplements create this allergic
reaction as well? What do you
suggest? M.C., Boca Raton,
Fla.
A: If your reaction is that
severe, then avoid supple-
mentation with fish oils. You
are right though, the essential
fatty acids found in fish oils
are good for the heart, and
that's what most people have
heard about. But EFAs are
good for many conditions, so
I take a supplement every
day.
There is research to sup-
port the ability of EFAs to
boost mood, improve choles-
terol ratios, protect our brain

and memory, relieve joint
pain, improve digestion, ease
constipation, fight infections
and smooth out wrinkles. See
why I like EFA supplements
so much? -
If you'd like to take EFAs
but you are allergic to fish or
don't want to use an animal-
derived product, then con-
sider black currant oil as an
option. Black currants con-
tain a lot of gamma linoleic,
acid, which provides power-
ful anti-inflammatory sub-
stances when taken in nor-
mal dosages. Don't overdo
anything, though not even
good stuff.
Black currants are little
fruits that provide EFAs that
are particularly helpful in
reducing inflammation,
especially in gals. What
comes to mind here is all that
breast tenderness that
women get right before their
period, and other PMS prob-
lems in general. Taking even
one gelcap a day of this sup-
plement (1,000 mg) can
make a considerable differ-
ence in your overall health.
Black currant products are
also found as jams and teas.
Since they're fruit- rather
than fish-derived, you can
make tastier things out of
them.


While we're on the subject
of PMS, you could add vita-
min B6 (about 50 mg daily),
magnesium (about 100 mg
daily) and vitamin E (about
400 mg daily) and really see
some terrific cramp-reducing
and mood-boosting benefits.
But back to black currants.
They have as many powerful
antioxidants as blueberries,
maybe more. They also have
more vitamin C than
oranges, plus they contain
anthocyanins the plant
pigment that provides anti-
cancer protection because it
fights free radicals.
So just because you can't
take fish oils doesn't mean
that you can't get a good
source of EFAs. You can also
look at other oils, such as
evening primrose oil and
borage oil. I like EFAs that are
produced from quality com-
panies, and there are many. A
few that come to mind are
Nordic Naturals, Solaray,
Nature's Sunshine, Vitamin
Shoppe, Health from the Sun
and CurrantC (that last one is
sold online at currants.com.)

American Hardcore
Generally unheralded at the time,
the early 1980s hardcore punk rock
scene gave birth to much of the rock
music and culture that followed. There
would be no Nirvana, Beastie Boys or
Red Hot Chili Peppers were it not for
hardcore pioneers such as Black Flag,
Bad Brains and MinorThreat. Hardcore
was more than music-it was a social
movement created by Reagan-era mis-
fit kids. The participants-constituted a
tribe unto themselves some finding
aivoice; others an escape in thehard-
edged music. And while jome so uughi
a better world, others were just angry
and wanted to raise hell. American
Hardcore traces this lost subculture,
from its early roots in 1980 to its
extinction in 1986. 100 mins.

Apocalypto
-From Academy Award winning film-
maker Mel Gibson (The Passion of the
Christ, Braveheart), comes Apocalypto:

ture set against the turbulent end

tion. When his idyllic existence is bru-
tally disrupted by a violent invading
force, a man is taken on a perilous
journey to a world ruled by fear and
oppression where a harrowing end
awaits him. Through a twist of fate and
spurred by the power of his love for
his woman and his family he will
.make a desperate break to return
home and to ultimately save his way
of life. 2 hr. 18 min.

Babel
In an instant, the lives of four sepa-
rate groups of strangers on three dif-
ferent continents collide. Caught up in
the rising tide of an accident that
escalates beyond anyone's control are
a vacationing American couple (Brad
Pitt, Cate Blanchett), a rebellious deaf
Japanese teenager and her father, and
a Mexican nanny who, without permis-
sion, takes two American children
across the border. None of these
strangers will ever meet; in spite of the
sudden, unlikely connection between
them, they will all remain isolated due
to their own inability to communicate
meaningfully with anyone around
them.

Set against the backdrop of civil war
and chaos in 1990's Sierra Leone,
Blood Diamond is the story of Danny
Archer (Leonardo DiCaprio) a South
African mercenary and Solomon Vandy
(Djimon Hounsou) a Mende fisher-
man. Both men are African, but their
histories as different as any can be,
until their fates become joined in a
common quest to recover a rare pink
diamond that can transform their
lives. While in prison for smuggling,
Archer learns that Solomon who
was taken from his family and forced
to work in the diamond fields has
found and hidden the extraordinary
rough stone. With the help of Maddy

sacrifice comes to life in this live-
action adaptation. Fern (Dakota
Fanning) is one of only two living
beings who sees that Wilbur is a spe-
cial animal as she raises him, the runt

pig. As Wilbur moves into a new barn,
he begins a second profound friend-
ship with the most unlikely of crea-
tures a spider named Charlotte -
and their bond inspires the animals
around them to come together as a
family. When the word gets out that
Wilbur's days are numbered, it seems
that only a miracle will save his life. A
determined Charlotte who sees mir-
acles in the ordinary spins words
into her web in an effort to convince
the farmer that Wilbur is "some pig"
and worth saving. 1 hr. 53 min.

Deja Vu
Everyone has experienced the
unsettling mystery of deja vu that
flash of memory when you meet
someone new you feel you've known
all your life or recognize a place even
though you've never been there
before. But what if the feelings were
actually warnings sent from the past
or clues to the future? In the captivat-
ing new action-thriller from producer
Jerry Bruckheimer and directorTony
Scott, written by Terry Rossio and Bill
Marsilii, it is deja vu that unexpectedly
guides ATF agent Doug Carlin (Denzel
Washington) through an investigation
into a shattering crime. Called in to
recover evidence after a bomb sets off
a cataclysmic explosion on a New
Orleans Ferry, Carlin is about to dis-
cover that what most people believe is
only in their heads is actually some-
thing far more powerful and will lead
him on a mind-bending race to save
hundreds of innocent people. 2 hr. 8

Fur: An Imaginary
Portrait of Diane

creates a ravishing imaginary portrait
of the visionary artist Diane Arbus.
Much as an actual Arbus photo trans-;
poai.i uS int s.rrange'and jntamiliar

ing glass to explore the transformation
of a shy woman into a powerfully origi-
nal artist. Oscar winner Nicole Kidman
stars as Diane Arbus, a devoted wife,
and mother whose innate talents and
dark obsessions are profoundly at
odds with the conventional life she
leads in 1958 NewYork. Oscar-nomi-
nee Robert Downey Jr. co-stars as
Lionel, an enigmatic new neighbor
who launches Diane on her journey to
becoming the artist she is meant to
be. 120 mins.

ARIES (March 21-April
19). If you find your-
self wondering, "Is it
me, or have I just achieved a
new level of greatness?" let
that thought develop into a
belief that you have indeed
achieved a new level of great-
ness (though you cannot
prove this yet).

May 20). As much as
you'd like to go along
with what your fellow
ING tribesmen are doing, some-
thing inside you just won't
dance to that beat. Why fight
: the urge to go your own way?
You're creative. Get used to it.

SGEMINI (May21-June
21). The spirit in which
a thing is given deter-
mines how it will be received.
This is especially good news if
you have more time than
money. Put your whole inten-
g.. .: tion and all your blessings into
your contribution.

SCANCER (June 22-July
S22). Waste no time in
.trying to convince
someone that she's wrong. If
you simply can't let it go, the
most convincing thing to do is
to let this person have her way.
The evidencewill be
irrefutable.


LEO (July 23-Aug.22).
You're growing
increasingly self-con-
tained. The more talented you
are, the less you need excess
stuff. Get rid of all unnecessary
props. The fewer tools required
to do your work, the better
your results.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22). You have a won-
derful time meander-
ing around the point, sliding
off topic, forgetting yourself in
the moment that grows out of
the moment. In short, all
results are intangible. All the
best things are.

The Queen
The Queen takes audiences behind
the scenes of one of the most shock-
ing public events of recent times pro-
viding an illuminating, acidly funny, yet
deeply affecting, dramatic glimpse into
what happens in the corridors of power
when tragedy strikes. The setting for
this fictional account of real events is
no less than the private chambers of
the Royal Family and the British gov-
ernment in the wake of the sudden
death of Princess Diana in August of
1997.The result is an intimate, yet the-
matically epic, battle between private
and public, responsibility and emotion,
custom and action as a grieving
nation waits to see what its leaders will
do.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23). Lend your aid, but
judiciously and in full
knowledge. When you help
someone, right away you
become responsible for that
person. And you won't be pre-
pared for whathappens after
that!

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-
Nov. 21). The truth,
though it is rare and
certainly valuable, somehow
defies the laws of supply and
demand. Nobody wants to buy
it. If you're offering the truth,
you won't be able to sell it
today without some cool pack-
aging.

... SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
22-Dec. 21). Stop fret-
\ ting about a decision
and make it. When the differ-
ence is big, you know what to
choose, and when the differ-
ence is small, it doesn't really
matter what you choose.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19). Sometimes
you're inspired, so you
do the work. Other times, you
do the work and the inspira-
tion comes later, or it never
comes. The latter is the case
today, but at least you know,
so there's no need to wait.

* AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18). The big pic-
ture comes into sharp
focus. Use the clear lens of
today's stars to re-chart your
course and make certain
you're on track. This evening
brings a gorgeous view.

PISCES (Feb. 19-
March 20). Take every
.7. opportunity to, as the

Stranger Than
Fiction
A novelist (Emma Thompson) strug-
gles to complete her latest, and poten-
tially finest, book she only has to
find a way to kill off her main charac-
ter, Harold Crick, and she'll be done.
Little does she know that Harold Crick
(Will Ferrell) is inexplicably alive and
well in the real world and suddenly
aware of her words. Fiction and reality
collide when the bewildered and hilari-
ously resistant Harold hears what she
has in mind and realizes he must find
a way to change her (and his)
ending. 1 hr. 53 min.

Turistas
Travelers are in the midst of enjoying
a dream vacation along the Brazilian
coast. Joining a party of revelers on the
beach, the friends are drugged and
awake to find themselves robbed of
money, credit cards and passports. Led
to a home in the jungle where they are
told they will be safe, the friends
instead discover a potentially fatal
secret.

Unaccompanied
Minors
It's Christmas Eve and five kids have
just been snowed in at the airport and
there isn't a parent in sight Unac-
companied Minors follows awkward
Spencer (Dyllan Christopher), rich-girl
Grace (Gina Mantegna), tomboy Donna
(Quinn Shephard), geeky Charlie (Tyler
James Williams) and bashful Beef (Brett
Kelly) as they try to outwit a disgruntled
airport official (Lewis Black) and reunite
with their families. Using "borrowed" golf-
carts, a canoe on a snow hill and the
help of a reluctant flight attendant
(Wilmer Valderrama), these kids are
about to prove the holidays aren't about
where you are, but who you're with. 1 hr.

Winter dance party part

of December fun


Ii began ihe \\a most rhir
acles do:' by accident or the
hand of God, take your pick.
It might have been the
weather, at least partly. For
December, the day had been
almost balmy and warm. You
know, sweaters instead of
heavy coats. No mittens in
sight.
Then there were Christmas
lights on the stores, and that
little bunch of Girl Scouts out
raising money in front of the
Read Me Now bookstore.
Jasper Blankenship was in-
side going through the books
to fortify his cabin's library for
winter and sat, listening with
a smile to the girls as they


laughed and waited for cus-
tomers that weren't really
coming along too briskly.
"It's a shame there aren't
more. people out today for
those girls," said Sarah Mc-
Kinley, behind the counter.
Jasper nodded and paid for
his books, then walked out to
the truck. He stopped and
thought for a while, then
brought out his violin, rosined
the bow, and walked over to
the sidewalk next to the girls.
-A 'You girls:,like fiddle mu-
sicW!he asked.;'
"Sure do."
And Jasper began playing
fiddle tunes.
Carla Martinez was driving
down the street, headed for
the Soup 'R Market when she
saw the Girl Scouts dancing
with each other in front of
their table to Jasper's music.
Before he'd had time to finish
that tune, she'd returned with
her guitar and joined the fun.
JimAlbertson, the elementary
school principal, showed up
with a harmonica, and he
wasn't bad at it.
Dud got out his accordion

Bell ringers are in short supply this year help if you can


KIM COOL
Irma- EDITOR


Ringers needed
in North Port
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-
tles 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
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 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
organization that works so
hard to keep its costs down so
that as much money as possi-
ble 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 of those 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.
It's a sign
Sunday, I will be signing
copies of my latest book,
"Venice History Illustrated" at
Borders, 3800 South Tamiami
Trail, Sarasota from 1-3 p.m.
Stop by for a visit if you are up
that way. If you would like to
reserve signed copies of that
or any of my other books, call
the store at 366-7970.

COOL From last Green Sheet


ma of homecoming and cul-
tural exploration.
Ending the Stage II season
is the regional premiere of a
lofty restoration comedy with
some outrageously funny
modem twists. David Grimm's
"Measure for Pleasure" has all
the accouterments of a beauti-
ful 18th-century comedy, but
with an unmistakably mod-
em sensibility. This play con-
tains explicit sexual situation
and adult language.
"Measure for Pleasure"
begins April 25 and runs
through May 18.
All three shows in the Stage
III season will be presented at
FST's Gompertz Theatre.
Single tickets range from $19
for previews to $29-$32 for
regular performances. A sub-
scription to all three shows
ranges from $39-$52. Both
subscription tickets and sin-
gle tickets may be purchased
from the FST box office in
person or by calling 366-9000.

pick up their child's toys
according to the ticket num-
ber. If a child's ticket was not
selected, the family can go to
the Toy Shop and select a gift
from donated toys that do not
have tickets assigned to them.
The children are not permit-
ted to attend the toy pick-up.
That would spoil the surprise
on Christmas morning.

The new Angels of Senior
Friendship Centers celebrat-
ed the launch of this new
community effort at the Third
Thursday Stroll in downtown
Venice.
Angels of Senior Friend-
ship Centers is a dedicated
group of businesses and indi-
viduals whose goal is to create
a "bank" of donated services,


time, goods and funds so that
no senior in our community
is denied assistance they
need due to lack of personal
resources or available fund-
ing from government and
nonprofit agencies. On any
given day, 400 seniors in
Sarasota County are waiting
for basic services. For more
information on how you can
become involved, call 584-

waiting room was filling up
with toys and patients were
leaving with smiles that
sparkled nearly as much as
the smiles on the faces of the
children who will receive
those toys.
Other volunteers are giving
their time to make sure that
the Salvation Army has bell
ringers for every kettle, know-
ing that the money collected
from those kettles stays in


Venice to help fund countless
needs throughout the year,
from families who need help
paying their electric bill to
those made homeless by a
hurricane.
The Salvation Army kettles
will be out until Dec. 23. Toys
for Tots and other charities
will accept donations any-
time.
As you check your list and
decide who has been naughty
or nice, remember those who
might otherwise be forgotten.

These cash donations allow
Toys for Tots to better help

Local donations will be

There will also be a combined

'Let there be light'


BENNETT GROSS
ii,iIGiBIN UOL.NJT 1


"And God said, 'Let there
be light;' This first light God
made before He made the sun
and staFs. He showed it to
David, who burst into song.
This was the light Moses saw
on Sinai!! At the creation, the
universe from end to end
radiated light but it wag
withdrawn And now it is
stored away for the righteous,
until all!the worlds will be in
harmony again and all will be
united and whole. But until
the future world is estab-
lished, this light, coming out
of darkness and formed by
the Most Secret, is hidden:
'Light is sown for the right-
eous.' "
- Meditation, Hebrew Union
Prayer Book

Light takes on added
importance at this time of
year as the days grow shorter
and the lights from Hanukkah


menorahs and Christmas
decorations brighten our,
nights. And our souls.
Is this the light sown for the
righteous mentioned in the"
passage above? I would like to:
believe it is for the Jews and
Christians who honor and
respect the true meanings of
their separate holidays -
those who go beyond the tin-
sel and the trappings to reflect
in the light of the miracles
observed for different reasons
by each faith.
The word "Hanukkah"
means "dedication" and this
is what the Maccabees set out
to do in the temple by lighting
its menorah after they defeat-
ed the Greek-Syrian.army in
the second century B.C.E. But
this proved to be a problem
because those who had occu-
pied Jerusalem had defiled its
holy temple including the oil
used to light the menorah.
The miracle occurred, as
the storyis told in the Talmud,
when one cruse of pure oil
was found and though it was
thought to be enough for only
one day, it miraculously
burned for eight days.
Certainly as Ari Goldman
points out in "Being Jewish"
this story "does not rank in
other biblical miracles, like
the parting of the Red Sea or
the revelation on Mount

Sinai, but it has captured the
imagination of the Jewish
people for reasons that go be-
yond the miracle."
It symbolizes the spiritual.
flame of the Jewish people
that has not been extin-'
guished through times of per-
secution.
Like the flame that would-
n't go out, our faith still burns
as brightly as the candles that
will be lit and held by mem-
bers of the Jewish Center of


Venice at the Gazebo in Cen-
tennial Park every day at 5:30
p.m., Dec. 15-22.
What makes this candle-
lighting ceremony different is
that the candles will be held
to form a "Living Menorah,"
children and adults holding
the rays of the miracle.
Each of us has in our hearts
and souls the power to per-
form if not a miracle, a "mitz-
vah" by performing an act of
living kindness this holiday


season. Good acts don't have
to be measured in size but in
the spirit they are given and to
whom they are given.
Whether it's contributing
to the food bank, a toy for a
tot in need, reaching out to
those in nursing homes with
a visit, or a note or phone call
so someone you've been
meaning to contact for the
longest of times remember:
This is the season to brighten
up someone's life. And bring


on a smile or two.
Shalom.

Bennett Gross is
Communications Chair of
the Jewish Center of Venice
and active in Catholic/Jewish
Studies as well as other
Interfaith affairs.

Pinebrook Preserve is tucked away offEdmondson Road


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


The preserve part of
Pinebrook Preserve faces
Pinebrook Road, but the
entrance to the small
Waterford-built condominium
community is west of
Pinebrook, off Edmondson
Road. /
Prudential Village Realtor
CherylYoumans currently has
four listings there, two
upstairs and two downstairs,
all with preserve views and
detached one-car garages and
storage space. The pool and
clubhouse is just steps away


from each of the residences.
Each three-bedroom resi-
dence has crown molding,
wide baseboards, solid wood
cabinetry, granite counters in
the kitchen and Corian coun-
ters in the two bathrooms.
First-floor homes are wheel-
chair accessible and all have a
third bedroom, which could
double as a den or computer
room.
The en suite laundry
and utility area is a two-room
space, with room to add built-
in storage shelves and room
for a washtub if desired. The

reinforced variety said to be good for 50 years. At right is the kitchen with its granite
counters.


the kitchen and the master
bedroom has two walk-in
closets. A linen closet is
included in the second bath.
There is a tub in the second
bathroom and a large shower
with glass doors in the master
bath, plus twin vanity sinks.
Mission-style windows offer
wonderful views of the pre-
serve land along Pinebrook
Road, which can barely be
seen beyond the trees.
The floor plan is more like
one would find in a house
than in a condominium com-
munity, with a 13-foot by
nearly 17-foot great room and
a dining room that is nearly
10-feet by 11-feet with an
angled wall toward the lanai
and preserve view. Second-
floor ceilings are vaulted and
floors feature large ceramic
tile in traffic areas with berber -
carpeting in the bedrooms.
There are slight differences in
each of the floor plans but all
have that preserve view, priva-
cy and a quiet cul de sac loca-
tion. A bonus is the amount of
guest parking space per build-
ing and the special hurricane-
resistant tile used on the roofs.
Youmans said it should last 50
years.
Each residence is listed at
$325,000 and can be seen by
appointment. The one pic-
tured with this article includes
an allowance for a new washer

Baby needs a "forever
home"! She will be two this
spring, apparently does not
like dogs bigger than her,
but gets a long fine with the
small dogs. She is up to
date on shots, heartguard
and is spayed. She is curi-
ous, playful and friendly. At
61.pounds, she is small for
a Rottweiler, but from the
vet information, is a Rott
mix. She still needs some
basic training. She spent
the first year of her life tied
to a tree with little or no
attention. Baby would prob-
ably do better in a one dog
home, or one with another
dog that is smaller. If you
think you have a place in
your home and heart for a
very sweet loving dog, who
just wants td love you ih
return, please call EARS,
941-475-0636 and ask
about Baby.
