End of an era at Venice Beach Pavilion


Company


plans airport


commerce center


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


( -i.


A local company has de-
signs on part of the Venice
Municipal Airport.
The Burr Group is plan-
ning to develop Venice Air
Commerce Center.
The company currently
leases a 2.2-acre parcel with
an existing hangar on the
south side of Airport Avenue
between Avenue del Circo
and the Circus Arena.
Plans for the 1-acre vacant
lot frontage on Airport Ave-
nue call for 4,000 square feet'
of office space with adjoining
new hangars to the rear. The
appealing Mediterranean-
style building with barrel-tile
roofs and dormers will be
tastefully landscaped.
All occupants are expected
to be aviation-related busi-
nesses, servicing or repairing
engines, upholstery or instru-
ments, with facilities to work
on planes at the rear of their
offices.
"There is a big need for
newer, useful hangars at


* I .


Venice airport," said Patrick
Jaehne, The Burr Group vice
president of commercial de-
velopment
Five new hangars will be
built to the rear of the office
units. On the rear 1.2 acres the
company is proposing to add
another 80-foot-by-50-foot
hangar matching the existing
3,000-square-foot hangar.
The Burr Group, 400 South
Tamiami Trail on the island,
has been building homes in
NewYork since 1945.
In 2005 the company fin-
ished 30 homes in North Port.
Now its intention is to
expand, with some commer-
cial projects around the air-
port.
The company brought a lot
of resources and money to
Venice, according to Jaehne.
The project is expected get
started in 2007, and the com-
pany is planning to take office
space within the Venice Air
Commerce Center.

Manolis Makris takes a walk out the back door of the concession stand at the Venice Beach Pavilion where he worked for
the past 10 years.


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

Life is up in the air for Manolis
Makris.
Every day for the past 10 years he
has been busy preparing his speciality
Greek breakfast and lunch pita sand-
wiches at the Venice Beach Pavilion. In
the process, he has made a lot of
friends.
The food concession operator's
contract with Sarasota County expires
in January. He was outbid recently by
50 percent more than the rent Makris
was paying each month under his
original contract.
When new operators take over


THOWN IS

OUR TOWN I 1B


March 14, Makris will have to find
another job.
"I am only 55, so I still have to
work," he said. "I would like to open a
restaurant in Venice.",
It looks like he just may do it
because Makris has a list of 300 cus-
tomers who will be waiting for his
return.
He got these, names from a petition
he put out on the counter after he dis-
covered that the county did not accept
his bid for renewal of his concession-
aire's contract.
"I have everything it takes to start
up a new restaurant and a few ideas in
my head where to go," he said.
"It will be really sad to see him go.


He has been so nice to everyone,"
Patricia Mobraten said. "He even puts
scraps of carpet on the concrete
benches when it is cold out."
"His coffee is the best in Venice,"
Barbara Sirpilla said, "and when it is
hot, he gives water to my dog."
Makris will take a week off to visit
family in Tarpon Springs after he hauls
his equipment out of the pavilion.
No option
Makris thinks the county was unfair
in the bidding process.
"After 10 years of building up this
business, I should have at least be able

Homeowners of Stoney-

representatives of Lennar
Homes during a recent work-
shop the developer held to
explain community develop-
)1n ment district fees proposed
in body, but for the community's $6.6 mil-
lion stormwater facility.
Residents rejected the
CDD fees, maintaining they
already funded the stormwa-
Catherine Loose ter facility and other commu-

the purchase of their homes.
"This CDD is a business
maneuver employed by Len-
nar to get more money for
themselves," said resident

structure was
the responsi-

CDDs are
not unusual,
according

ell, whose

manages and services them.
In a presentation he made
before the group, Wrathell
said CDDs were necessary
due to Florida's rapid growth.
"CDDs enable property
owners to help city and coun-
ty government by taking
charge and managing their
desired infrastructure tailored
to the best needs and stan-
dards of their community,"


Wrathell said.
Wrathell added that CDDs
provide a higher level of ser-
vice than typically provided
by a county or city, as they
must serve a larger con-
stituency and attempt to pro-
vide a consistent level of ser-
vice throughout their juris-
diction.
'Vague answers'
The crux of the argument,
however, was whether CDDs
were meant to purchase in-
frastructure or maintain it.
"We were told early on that
CDD fees would go toward
maintenance of the commu-
nity, not to purchase storm-
water facilities," said resident
Gary Natiss. "We paid for all of

Knights Trail signal project

in acquisition phase


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

It's slow going, but there is
progress on the planned traf-
fic light at Knights Trail and
Laurel Road.
The design phase of the
project is nearly complete,
according to Caroline East-
wood, general manager for
public works mobility for
Sarasota County.
"Right now we're in the
right-of-way acquisition
phase," she said. "We have to
acquire the property before
we can go to construction."
The stoplight and intersec-
tion widening, paid with
Venice roads impact fee mon-
ey, is scheduled to start in
2008.
If the county can voluntar-
ily procure the surrounding
property, Eastwood said, a bid
for the project could go out in
fall 2007 and be awarded in
late 2007 or early 2008.
If the county has to go
through eminent domain or
condemnation proceedings
to secure any of the proper-
ties, it would delay the project
another nine months to a


year, Eastwood said.
"In general, the process is
going fairly well. We don't
know if we will have to go to
condemnation at this point,"
Eastwood said.
Thus far, the county has
already acquired one ease-
ment from Elks Lodge. It's still
negotiating with Waterford,
the city of Venice, J&J Homes,
Parcorp Holdings LLC and
Moorman Development on
the other parcels.
History
The plan is to. widen
Knights Trail and provide a
traffic signal where it meets
Laurel Road, and add turn
lanes up to Technology Drive,
site of PGT Industries and
other businesses.
Typically, the traffic signal
is the last thing to go in,
Eastwood said.
Venice has long wanted a
traffic light at Knights Trail
and Laurel Road, as well as
the extension of Knights Trail
north through the county
landfill to Clark Road.

You might remember when
Tropical Bob exposed the Heat
Index as aYankee plot to make
our summers appear inhos-

tice, that index.
T.B. has uncovered yet
another nefarious Yankee plot.
This one involves selling us
dead trees.
What happens is that we're
sold on the need to purchase
dead Northern trees each
Christmas. Why? Local trees
are not good enough, we're
told.
The truth is that this is a
conspiracy to get our hard-
earned Southern dollars into
Yankee hands. Don't fall for it.

the unexpired term of John
Vickers. Kalajian would serve
three terms before term limits
forced him out of office. Each
time he ran for election, in
1981 and 1984, he was unop-
posed. He served as vice
mayor in 1981 and 1987.
Fellow council member Ed
Taylor remembers Kalajian as
a young blood on what was
generally an older council.
"He was the youngest city
councilman, at age 33, before
I came on board at age 25,"
recalled Taylor. "We bonded.
We were young business peo-
ple during a growth phase for
the city of Venice. He was a
really cool guy and just a lot of
fun.
"He and I were more often
on the same side of an issue,
like adding new fire stations,
running central utilities
through the island, dealing
with the expansion of en-
claves. We had a very progres-
sive council, even for today.
John was part of that leader-
ship. The things we take for
granted today, John had a
hand in."
Taylor was on hand three
weeks ago when Kalajian vis-
ited the Sertoma Club of
Venice to say goodbye. The
visit was facilitated by Venice
Gondolier Sun publisher Bob
Vedder at Kalajian's request.
"He was able to see every-
body's viewpoint," recalled
Vedder, "and always stayed
true to himself. John was not a
person who could be unduly
influenced. He had great ana-
lytical skills and always came
to a conclusion that was
acceptable to all parties. It
helped him be the voice of
reason on any subject."
"Varied interests were a
hallmark of John's life a life
well spent," said his wife,
Sarabeth, who heads the
county's library system. "He
had a passionate zest for
learning anything and
everything."
"Friends often commented
that John could converse
comfortably with anyone he
met about some topic of
mutual interest. John had an
easy and natural ability to
make friends wherever he
went," she said of her hus-
band of 17 tears.

CITY NOTES


Water warming is false
People selling water purifying equip-
ment may approach Venice city residents
implying that the city water is impure and
unhealthy to drink.
The city produces high-quality potable
water through the reverse osmosis system.
Enough chlorine to purify the water and
meet environmental standards is added at
the end of processing before it is piped to


the homes and businesses in the city.
City employees do not sell anything.
Residents who question the authenticity of
people presenting themselves as city em-
ployees should ask to see a city identifica-
tion badge.
If you are unsure about the identity or
purpose of sales people coming to your
door, call the Venice Police Department,
486-2444.


Correction
Due to reporter error, in "A
Santa's Story" in the Dec. 24-26
edition we incorrectly reported
that Santa Rocky Jankowski
was a native of Fort Lauderdale.
Jankowski was born in
Pittsburgh, Pa., and moved to
Florida in 1975. The Gondolier
Sun regrets the error.

to meet the new operator's
price," he said.
"If I couldn't match it, then
I would have told them I did-
n't want it."
Makris was given a letter
that stated he should be out
by March 14.
"I have nothing to show for
all of my work," he said. "It is
not like I am selling the busi-
ness that I built up. I just have
to get out."
There was no renewal
option in Makris' original
contract. According to the
county's purchasing rules,
new proposals are to be sub-
mitted prior to the expiration
of an existing contract.


NEW OPERATORS ARE FAMILIAR FACES
After selling snow cones, shakes and sodas at special events in Venice for the past eight years, Charles
Alban and his wife, Freddie, will be taking over the concession at the Venice Beach Pavilion on March
14.
'This will be our first permanent location," Charles Alban said.
They plan to sell more than snow cones. The new menu will include hot dogs, hamburgers, nachos
and french fries.
The couple is well known from various events, including the Sun Fiesta, the Easter egg hunt and
Pioneer Days In Englewood. They have been members of Venice MainStreet for five years.
A former accountant, Alban hopes he bid the right amount for the concession.
"I know I bid 50 percent higher than he was currently paying, but he was paying the same rent for the
last 10 years," he said.
They will be up and ready to go on March 14.
"The county doesn't like you to close at all, so we are expecting no down-time," he said.


"If he doesn't find that rest-
aurant to open up in Venice, I
will take him back to Greece,"


Emilio Tomou said. Tomou is
a customer who has become
one of his loyal friends.

the infrastructure when we
bought our homes. We'll be
darned if we're going to pay
for it again."
Terry Kirschner, construc-
tion supervisor for Lennar,
reminded, the group, "We let
everyone know the CDD did
exist. It was mentioned four
times in documents present-
ed to homeowners and at
closing it was signed one
more time."
Schmidt admitted she saw
the CDD language in her clos-
ing documentation, but said
it was "misrepresented."
"We were given vague
answers to questions we had


about it," Schmidt said. "We
were told, 'The county needs
it to fund schools as an
increased tax for new devel-
opments.' That's just not ac-
curate."
'The norm'
This matter came before
Sarasota County commis-
sioners on Sept. 27 when law-
yer KenVan Assenderp, repre-
senting Lennar, sought a be-
lated ordinance for a CDD to
encompass the 560-acre
community.
"Usually the approval for a
community development
.district happens up front,"


said Commissioner Jon Thax-
ton. "Then you get buyer's
consent, then you get paid
back for infrastructure. Rec-
ognizing that these paybacks
are for specific development
costs that were incurred by
the developer, it really calls
into question is this the best
method."
VanAssenderp maintained
that the CDD went beyond
basic infrastructure costs in-
curred by Lennar for roads,
water and sewer. It also in-
cluded costs associated with
upland preservation and the
aforementioned stormwater
systems, he said.


"Upland reservations and
stormwater systems are the
norm," Thaxton said. "We see
those systems paid for and
maintained as a matter of law
by Sarasota County by other
than community develop-
ment districts."
Thaxton expressed his be-
wilderment as to why a devel-
oper would accept the risk of
"millions of dollars worth of
infrastructure which were
obviously known."
The matter will come back
to the commissioners Jan. 23.

OUR VIEW


Is Florida's highway safety program just empty words?


lorida's highways are extremely dan-
gerous. Last year 3,515 people died on
them more than nine men, women
and children daily. Thousands others were
critically injured.
The cost of repairing or replacing our
cars also is astronomical. It helps explain
why Florida's auto insurance rates remain
so high.
Is Florida ready to change? Will newly
elected Gov. Charlie Crist, the state Legis-
lature and the Florida Department of Trans-
portation now make highway safety a prior-
ity?
The early indication is, no.
FDOT recently released a 49-page report
outlining its highway safety effort.
We at the Sun papers read the document
and were disappointed. So we asked Chad
Dornsife, director of the Best Highway


Safety Practice Institute, in Portland, Ore., to
review it.
He gave a blunt response that says every-
thing we could:
"Florida's new Blue Ribbon Safety Plan
placates the public with safety platitudes to
justify empire building and the accompany-
ing expenditures of millions of dollars of
pork allocated by Congress.
"It will not make your roads safer!
"Simply stated, these reports have di-
gressed into nothing more than well-orga-
nized, self-interest and revenue-generating
propaganda campaigns.
"Worse, their proposed remedies are
known to be, on the whole, ineffective.
"No constituency remains for safety pro-
grams, despite the fact federal and state
laws were passed decades ago requiring
officials to do the right thing.


"For almost 20 years now, Florida, in ex-
change for federal highway funding, has
been certifying that every Florida roadway
and bike path open to public travel has had
periodic safety audits (comprehensive engi-
neering studies). In fact, these studies are
rarely done. Most of your roadways have
never had one.
"People continue to die by the thousands
as a direct result of the lack of leadership, as
well as agency empire-building, plus igno-
rance and indifference to true solutions.
"We know what to do, but there is no
leadership. Officials need the will to do the
job. What Florida most needs is strong lead-
ership, a real safety plan and the will to
implement it.
"It's never too late. These studies are
meant to quantify what traffic is doing, the
condition of the roadway and its traffic con-


trols and signs, as Well as a review of acci-
dents on each roadway segment.
"Florida is expected to document all
unsafe conditions, categorize and prioritize
remedies and make sure its plans meet the
needs of the public.
"In addition, Florida traffic engineers
need to be instructed and allowed to miti-
gate all safety hazards.
"Congress has given this responsibility to
your state, but Florida officials refuse to act.
"Maybe your new governor will take
charge.
"Until there is clear leadership ... Flor-
ida's visitors and citizens will continue to bei,
injured or die unnecessarily each year by
thousands."
Dornsife is devoting his life to saving lives
on our nation's roads and highways. You can

Recount redux


MARY KAY RUPPEL
COLUMNIST


Yes, I know I have already
written concerning the close
race for the Congressional
seat in District 13. But every-
one else has had five shots at
it, so I feel entitled to another
one as well.
So, I go back to those
18,000 mysterious under-
votes in District 13. Do I think
the machines malfunctioned,
or even worse, that they were
tampered with? No, I think
that many Republicans de-
cided not to vote for Vern
Buchanan because of all the
mud slinging done by anoth-
er contender in the primary
election, Tramm Hudson.
Hudson and his support-
ers were painting Buchanan
as a conniving, greedy and
dishonest man. It was the
most aggressive attack I have
ever witnessed of one party
member against another.
So, since Buchanan had
been my choice, I asked him
to tell me in his own words
exactly what happened with
American Speedy Printing in
Detroit. He told me in explicit
detail the business deal as it
came down. I was satisfied
that nothing dishonest had
been done.
Aside from the voters who
simply chose not to vote,
there was the matter of poor
placement of District 13 on
the ballot. It was very easy to
miss and in fact, I missed it
myself, along with another
race in which I wanted to
vote. .
This was easily corrected
during the "Review Ballot"
process. Had I been unable to
correct it then, I would have
beckoned 'for a poll worker
and asked for help. If any poll
workers found machines
malfunctioning, wouldn't
they.have closed them down?
That would have been on
record.
To suggest the poor place-
ment was done purposely to


swing the votes is ludicrous.
The poor placement affected
Buchanan and Jennings
equally.
This matter has already
gone on. way too long. If I
were Christine Jennings,
would I throw in 'the towel?
Yes, definitely I would. It
would hurt to lose by only 369
votes, but I would thank my
supporters and move on. This
is one of those times in poli-
tics where the choice must be
made for the common good.
People wanted touch-
screen computerized voting,
so that's what we got. Now,
that's not good enough and
they want to go back to the
"paper" trail. Folks, have you
forgotten the chads in Palm
Beach County in 2000? That
situation got so bizarre ldat I
thought I was watching a
rerun of "The Twilight Zone"
at one point.
Also, have you ever won-
dered why it is always the
Democrats who are "disen-
franchised"? Do Republicans
have a natural immunity to
disenfranchisement?
Do you remember 1960
and the mysterious votes in
Chicago that contributed to
JFK winning that election?
Now, that would have been a
really interesting' recount
requiring a lot of dead people
to explain how they voted,
and sometimes more than
once. Hmmmm! Oh, there I
go reminiscing again.
Incidentally, because I
write a column on the Opin-
ion page, I am entitled to give
my opinion. Were I a news
writer, I would have to abide
by the old Jack Webb line on
"Dragnet"; "Just the facts,
ma'am, just the facts."
Let's get on to more press-
ing and important matters.
Don't you think that
Britney Spears should be tak-
ing advice on how to jump-
start her career from some-
one other than Paris Hilton?
I would suggest to Britney
that she consider as her men-
tor and role model that one
celebrity who has managed to
rise above it all with dignity
and panties intact Liz
Taylor.

What happened to Stump Pass beach?


Editor:
I recently took my biweekly boating trip to the south end of
Stump Pass beach and park and noticed that the most south-
ern/eastern part of the beach, where the pass was actually
dredged and boats travel through from Lemon Bay to the Gulf,
is now basically gone.
What was once a popular and busy location for boaters and
their families, tourists and others to gather on and enjoy, this
200- to 300-foot-wide sand beach has now basically disap-
peared within the past few weeks.
What remains, as of about a week ago, was a shallow little
lagoon with only about 10 feet of sand beach now separating it
from the pass (dredged this past summer).
, I haven't read anything about this and was wondering if this
"disaster" was intentional with the dredging, or if it's even been
noticed and reported by anyone.
Also, I was wondering what, if any, are the intentions to
restore this previously beautiful sand beach for all boaters,
their families, tourists and locals looking for shells, and to enjoy
dolphin watching? This particular area was also once a nesting
ground for turtles, as I remember.
I appreciate any information regarding this specific area, as
it is very special to many who used it often and marveled at its
beauty.

Little sympathy now
for fire victims

Editor:
When I read the article
regarding the fundraiser for
the owners of the Brauhaus
Restaurant, which was lost in
a fire, I was appalled at their
comments and dissatisfac-
tion with the amount of
money raised.
How terribly arrogant and
ungrateful can one be? What'
did they expect? They've been
in. this country five years, no
insurance, and yet they feel
entitled to much more.
There's not even as much
as an expression of apprecia-
tion to Sharky's and those
who did contribute to their
cause. What are they think-
ing? They should be asham-
ed.
What's more, are we sup-
posed to feel worse for them


having to sell their house at
below market price when
anyone else trying to sell a
house at this time is in the
same position?
Shame, shame, shame.

lacked compassion
Editor:
I was disappointed at the
negativity you chose to
broadcast in your article.
Haven't the Kuhns suffered
enough without your article
painting them as ungrateful
and racist?
Did you intend to do this?
Who are-who to judge them,
- God? Bah humbug indeed.
Thank you for informing
us that they rented the build-
ing and their equipment was
uninsured.


The Brauhaus was one of
our favorite area restaurants.
We wish them well in the
future and hope you.do.
Also your article contained
a factual error: It was reported
that the fire was determined
to be arson.
Merry Christmas to you

Bush needs to
chart a new course
Editor:
Commander Bush, sailing
his warship, the USS Iraq, has
been cruising in troubled
waters for the last several
years.
He and his loyal crew have
stayed the course. Currently
while in these risky waters his
warship was targeted and hit
with three deviating torpe-
does, creating massive leaks
that can't be contained.
The ship is rapidly taking
water and can't be saved. It is
sinking. The first torpedo to
hit the ship is the ongoing
civil war in Iraq, with no end
in sight.
The second torpedo hit is
the result of the mid-term
election, demanding change
and bipartisan cooperation.
The third torpedo is the
crucial one. Its the Baker-
Hamilton Report, dealing
with with long-shot solutions
to salvage uncontrollable
Iraq.
The commander's warship
is taking water fast. It's going
down. The SOS calls were sent
out and rescue ships are on
the way.
Commander Bush has
some choices to make. He can
stay the course and go down
with his ship, as many brave


naval commanders do, or he
can change course, get in the
life boats and be saved by the
rescue ships.
The choice is his, but time
is running out. We and all the
world are anxiously awaiting
his decision.
Hopefully, he'll see the
light and do what's right.

Our freedom is at risk


ROBERT J. BONADONNA
GUEST COLUMNIST

The transfusion of corpo-
ration dollars into the arteries
of both Democrat and Re-
publican politicians has given
them both the same blood
type: "democracy negative."
This pervasive condition is
growing like a virus, in local,
state and federal political
contests. The afflicted and
addicted politicians seem to
have no choice and no immu-
nity; they all need this flow of
tainted money in their sys-
tems to.survive.
In our recent contest for
the 13th Congressional Dis-
trict, we see implications of
possible chicanery and mon-
ey influence.
This contagion has now
developed into a true world-
wide pandemic. Instead of
exporting a people's democ-
racy to the evolving Third
World, we are .exporting cor-
porate corruption and con-
trol to these downtrodden
and emerging nations
through the World Trade Or-
ganization's dominance and
control.
The K-Street lobbyists in
Washington and local influ-
ence peddlers, have their
marching orders: "Go ye forth
and buy us politicians!" In
many cases these lobbyists
not only buy politicians, they
are kind and generous


enough to actually write the
legislation that they want
passed. How helpful to our
poor, overworked legislators.
The only thing that they
have to do is deposit the
checks into their accounts
and sign the legislation. This
legislation is the food and
sustenance of the multi-
headed corporate hydra-
monster.
This inhuman entity has
no conscience and no con-
cern for the impact on the
American citizen or our sup-
posedly democratic process.
Corporate profits and CEO
salaries are their only motiva-
tion. These obscene corpo-
rate salaries and legislation
favoring these industries are
ultimately paid for by every
working class taxpayer in the
form of product prices.
This highjacking of our
democracy must stop.
We must take corporate
control of our politicians
away from these prostitutes
who are seducing our public
servants and give it back to
the American voter and tax-
payer.
This will not be an easy
task. The forces that have a
stranglehold on the nation's
and the world's economies
will not surrender without
putting up a fight. They will
pressure and bribe our so-
called representatives to only
pass legislation that favors
the insatiable corporate
greed and not the American
citizen.
We must have "a new sys-
tem of elections that takes
private and corporate money
out of the political arena. The
McCain-Feingold Bill tried to
accomplish this a few years
ago, but that barrier has been
breached by K Street trickery
and deceit.


Qualified candidates for
local, state and federal offices
must be required to write
comprehensive "position
papers" on where they stand
on the issues. These docu-
ments should then be pub-
lished in the appropriate me-
dia outlets, without charge,
and then discussed in govern-
ment funded debates.
This will cost the nation a
small fraction of what is
presently. spent on the ob-
scene, repetitive, negative ad-
vertising subsidized by spe-
cial interest groups and cor-
rosive corporate interests.
The American people have
sacrificed much to earn and
preserve our way of life, from
the Revolutionary War, a civil
war to remain united, two
bloody world wars and the
present fiasco in the Middle
East.
This new threat to our
democracy from within is
more dangerous than all the
external threats that we have
faced and conquered.
If we and the world do not
win this threat of corporate
takeover and greed, the great
world experiment in democ-
racy will eventually die, and
the kings and dictators who
threatened us in the past will
be replaced by corporate dic-
tatorships, making automa-
ton slaves of our grandchil-
dren and generations to
come.
Yes, it is that important.
We do not want a world
ruled by corporate plutocra-
cies any more than we want-
ed a world ruled by kings and
dictators. We must not lose
the human freedoms so
many have died for.
Raise your voices so that
citizens, not corporations,
control our lives, our values,
our democracy.

A tip tip. We are snowbirds. We'll be coming back to Florida

generous with your tipping, the waitresses should be aware
that if it's us she's serving, she won't get 20 percent if she asks
us, "Do you want any change?" Otherwise, they will.

New sports bar coming to Galleria


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


Local restaurateur Barry
Lucibello Sr. is planning to
create an exciting new indoor
sports venue for the Galleria
Shopping Center in South
Venice.
Venice Sports Bar & Billi-
ards is set to open in February
next door to the Venice movie
theaters.


Twenty-six year old Barry
Lucibello Jr. has worked
alongside his dad, proprietor
of the popular Norma Jean's
Bar & Grill, 1635 South U.S. 41
Bypass, for the past three'
years. He will manage and
operate the new location
assisted by his uncle, Richard
Lucibello.
"We believe there is nowhere
to go in Venice to hear some
music, shoot a game of pool and

feel comfortable, so we're doing
something about it," said
Lucibello Sr.
Plans for the 5,000-square-
foot venue include carpeting
and tiling throughout, a large
rear-projection TV screen at
the entrance leading to the
focal point, and a horseshoe
bar seating 28 with numerous
TVs in the ceiling soffit.
On both sides of the bar will
be booths, possibly with small

TVs or individual sound pack-
ages, all within TV viewing.
They will lead into the sports
games area with 10 regulation
Allhausen upscale billiard
tables, dart boards, air hockey,
football, table games, and
video and electronic games.
The full bar will have some
appetizers, but not a food
menu. For halftime happy
hour appetizers, catering will
come from Norma Jeans.
Likely on Sundays they will
concentrate on the NFL
sports and college basketball
and football. Initially admis-
sion will be 21 and over
unless accompanied by an
adult, but Lucibello said it
could change. Total seating
will be around 100 and hours
will be from noon until late.
Lucibello and his son came
from Connecticut 15 years
ago. Originally a contractor,
he moved into the retail wine
and liquor business before
going to work for the school
board in Sarasota County.
A customer of Norma
Jean's on East Tampa Avenue
until it closed because of
redevelopment, he acquired
it 18 months later and has
maintained its local populari-
ty as a venue known for great
hamburgers and its fish fry.

Pelican Man's Bird Sanctuary closes its doors to.the public


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


An internationally renown-
ed Sarasota haven for sick and
injured birds has closed.
Here is what you get when
you dial the facility's phone
(941) 388-4444:
"You have reached the Pel-
ican Man's Bird Sanctuary," a re-
corded female voice states. "We
are sorry, but the sanctuary has
closed its gates to the public
because of lack of revenue.":;
PMNBS Executive Director
Jeffrey A Dering did not return
phone calls. However, in an
interview with the Venice Gon-
dolier Sun in December 2005,
Dering foresaw the closing.
"Unless we improve our
immediate operational short-
fall," Dering said then, "the
sanctuary may have to cease
all operations in just a few
months."
: It is not clear whether the
closing is temporary or per-
imanent.
The PMBS has been plagu-





P sI 1

., h1 Y


ed by scandal and money
problems for several years.
Recent history
PMBS was rocked by alle-
gations of mismanagement,
mistreatment of animals and
improper clinic practices
three.years ago.
Five people were fired after
presenting former PMBS Ex-
ecutive Director Mona Schon-
brunn with a list of 25 com-
plaints about mismanage-
ment and mistreatment of
animals.
Many of those who were
not terminated, resigned.

The five, along with about
35 other staff members and
volunteers, were let go after
Schonbrunn read the letter.
No formal animal cruelty
or mistreatment charges were
ever filed.
However, a former PMBS
clinic manager under Schon-
brunn was arrested and
charged with obtaining a con-
trolled substance by fraud in
November 2003.
At one point, the state in
effect closed down the PMBS
clinic by issuing a cease-and-
desist order to Schonbrunn
and the hospital director.


The Florida Department of

brunn the order for not hav-

by the late Dale Shields, who
was nicknamed "The Pelican

Shields died in 2003.
In 1988, the city of Sarasota

But he would like you
vote, nonetheless.
He has one of the "Final

A senior at Auburn Uni-

the ball for a touchdown
back in October against
Florida.
The play was a weekly

Pontiac and ESPN round-

ners and decided to have one
big annual winner.
The field has now been
whittled down to four.
Fans can vote on the

secret code.
Then you go to pon

LIAKAKOS, HALL PRE-
PARE FOR BRAWLGAME -
Shihan Reuben "Master
Shark" Istatia stopped by
the Venice Gondolier Sun
office in a tour promoting his
Jan. 4 "Turf Wars" fighting
program at the Al a Carte
Pavilion in Tampa.
The Venice angle has two
local heroes involved in the
no-holds barred style of
mayhem.
Anthony Liakakos and
Phil Hall both former
Venice High football and
wrestling standouts will
be making their professional
debuts that night.
Liakakos has seven ama-
teur bouts under his belt, but
the pro ranks will definitely
be a step up according to
Master Shark.
"It's the closest thing you
can get to gladiators," said
Shark. "People love it any-
thing goes."
Shark 'has matched Lia-
kakos and his Grab, and
Pound tactics against Yos-
mani Cabeszas out of
Tampa.
"I try to match competi-
tors up evenly," Shark said.
Shark said the Jan. 4 card
will have 10 to 12 bouts.
Weight classes range from
135 up to 250 plus.
He described the Ala
Carte as a classy venue.
The Ala Carte is located
just west of Tampa Inter-
national Airport on Dana
Shores Drive.
Those wanting to support
Liakakos and Hall live and in
person can call (813) 287-
8844 for ticket information.

OH MY! We've heard
that a number ex-Florida
grads living in the area are
heading to the BCS Champ-
ionship game in Glendale,
Ariz., Jan. 8.
The Gators are playing
Ohio State.
Maybe some Buckeye
fans in town are also attend-
ing the game.
Remember, Dan Parrett
was there in 2002.

For 30 minutes of its Coach

Eddie Shannon Christmas
Tournament opener, the Ven-
ice High's boys basketball
team dominated an athletic
Bradenton Prep squad.
The Indians ran out to and
sustained a 20-point lead into
the fourth quarter.
It nearly disappeared in a
wild and woolly finish, but
Venice was able to hang on to
a 54-52 victory Thursday
night at the Manatee Com-
munity College Gymnasium
in Bradenton.
Venice's second round
opponent will be Tampa Bay
Tech, an 89-65 winner over
Cardinal Mooney.
Running coach Steve Cay-
allaro's patient offense almost


to perfection, the Indians dis-
sected the Patriots in the first
half. Venice led at intermis-
sion 32-14 as Tyler Christian
had 12 points, Kyle Abney
eight and Trey Burton five.
The second stringers did a
good job protecting the lead
in the third quarter. Heading
into the final period, Venice
had a 41-21 lead.
Bradenton Prep, which
came into the contest with a
record of 6-1, began to whittle
into the lead in the fourth
quarter. .
With a minute an a half
left, Venice still had a 13 point
lead. Cavallaro put in all
reserves. He almost pulled the
plug too soon.
They barely survived a bar-
rage of three-pointers. The
Patriots connected for eight,
three-pointers in the final


session and came up just
short. When the final horn
sounded, Prep had rung up
an incredible 31 points in the
final quarter.
"We had confidence in the
kids on the floor," Cavallaro
said. "They were banking in
threes."

Fishing resolutions for 2007


BY DAVE HACK
FISHING COLUMNIST


The following is my fishing
resolutions for 2007. This
could have been my top 100,
but for obvious reasons I
shortened it.
No. 10 To have my rods
and reels with me when I visit
the jetty. They're always in the
other car, particularly when
the fish are biting.
No. 9 To be able to park
within 1,000 feet of the jetty in
February and March (the
sheepshead season). One of
these days, the Crow's Nest
authorities will realize that
I'm not eating in their restau-
rant.
No. 8 To stop procrasti-
nating and put new line on all
of my outfits. My braided line
is barely holding together on
my sheepshead reel.
No. 7 To eat more
sheepshead. Quite honestly,
I'm too lazy to clean them. I
could always hire a bait girl.
That would go over great with
Mrs. Sheepshead.
No. 6 To hire a bait girl to
catch my sand fleas. I hope
Mrs. Sheepshead doesn't real-
ize that a sand rake can be
used as a weapon.
No. 5 I almost forgot this
one. To remember to wash
my reels off after fishing.
Possibly even oil them occa-
sionally.
No. 4 --To convince more
and more fishermen that the
name of our fish is sheeps-
head. Sheephead ( with no s
in the middle) is a northern
trash fish.
No. 3 More fishermen
will stop laughing at my "Ugly


Lures." They don't realize that
ugly is beautiful to the preda-
tors.
No. 2 Maybe this will be
the year that sheepshead get
more respect. Too many peo-
ple consider them the
Rodney Dangerfield of the
fishing world.
No. 1 This one is a no
brainer. No more red tide.
Let's hope that Florida will
pass a law reducing the
amount of phosphorus' and
nutrients that can be put on
yards, golf courses. etc. Then


it creeps into the gulf via
streams, rivers, etc. and adds
to our red tide problem.
As I write this, the temper-
ature is dropping. This is what
die sheepshead are waiting
for. The fishing should gradu-
ally improve as the tempera-
ture goes down. I'm still pre-
dicting a earlier season than
normal for them.

shead can be contacted at

Red tid


BY STEPHEN BAUMANN
ENGLEWOOD EDITOR

Karenia brevis.
The name alone stirred feel-
ings of disgust and dismay'
along Florida's Southwest 'coast
again this year.
After a nearly year-long
plague in 2005, the red tide
algae receded from the gulf
early this year. Then in July, the
bloom of single-celled dinofla-
gellates made a comeback in
Collier and Lee counties, and
began to creep up the coast in
August
As of mid-December, ac-
cording to the latest monitoring
report from the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Research Institute,
very small concentrations of
red tide were detected only at
New Pass in Sarasota County,
Gasparilla Pass in Charlotte
County, Captiva Pass in Lee


ust won't quit


County, a few spots along the*
shore and far into the gulf.
Red tide algae in high con-
centrations attacks the nervous
system of fish, causing fish kills
and contaminating shellfish.
The mist from the algae also
can cause watery eyes, cough-
ing and scratchy throats in
humans.
This makes for a lousy day at
the beach. While red tide had
been noted as far back as the
19th century, its harmful effect
can be seen these days on the
modem tourism industry, as
well as the ecosystem.

Investigating

The. presence of red tide
stirred questions again -
about whether the problem is
getting worse, and, if so, why?
It may have something to
do with global warming, and it
may have something to do

with increased hurricane
activity, according to scientists
at Mote Marine Laboratory in
Sarasota. And while it is a natu-
rally occurring organism, sci-
entists are still investigating if
- or how much manmade
pollution boosts red tide
blooms.
For now, more funding has
been earmarked for research.
Mote scientists have received
more funds to monitor and
study the algae's growth and
movement ip the gulf. When
they have a greater under-
standing of it, they may be able
to figure out ways to begin
controlling it.
At least, they may be able to
warn people when Karenia
brevis is back at the beach.

Bush won't rule out possible presidential run


BY CHRISTY ARNOLD
STAFF WRITER

Gov. Jeb Bush can't take a
simple walk around the
island without plainclothes
security, note-taking report-
ers or camera-snapping vot-
ers.
Though his days are num-
bered as Florida's leader, he'll
probably never be able to
take that walk alone. After all,
he's the son of one president,
the brother to another, one of
the state's most popular gov-
ernors and, especially now,
the subject of the will-he-
ever-run game.
Bush, before trying to take
a walk Wednesday afternoon,
told the Sun he was obviously
not running for president in
2008 or else he'd be "traipsing
around in New Hampshire,
and Iowa."


The governor and his fam-
ily including his father, for-
mer President George H.W
Bush, and his mother,
Barbara often spend the
holidays on Gasparilla Island.
The normally,quiet, wealthy
Gulf island offers the Bushes a
place to be fathers and broth-
ers, instead of presidents and
governors.
"I'd rather be in Boca
Grande," he said.
Another Bush White
House, however, is still a pos-
sibility.
"I haven't ruled anything in
or out," he said.
Human
Bush's move to the guber-
natorial mansion wasn't as
easy as the fishing off Boca.
Bush, 53, lost his first
gubernatorial race in 1994 to
Democrat Lawton Chiles.


He regrouped and won in
1998. He easily won re-elec-
tion in 2002 with 56 percent
of the votes.
State law prohibits Bush
from staying in office beyond
two terms.
He has moved out of the
governor's mansion and the
office.
"It feels good," Bush said,
while standing outside the
Gasparilla Inn on Palm
Avenue Wednesday after-
noon. "Eight years is enough."
Bush said he had no
regrets about his two terms
in Tallahassee, occasionally
marked with politics and per-
sonal struggles.
"We're all humans, and we
all make mistakes," he said.
Dream come true
Many praised Bush's re-
sponse to the busy hurricane


seasons, especially 2004,
which saw four hurricanes hit
the Sunshine State. Many in
Southwest Florida saw Bush
repeatedly visit Charlotte and
DeSoto counties after Hurri-
cane Charley devastated the
communities Aug. 13, 2004.
"I'm proud of how those
communities hit by Charley
responded and recovered
quicker than people imag-
ine," Bush said.
Bush said he had only
wanted one job: Florida's gov-
ernor.
"My dream came true," he
said.
A few moments later, Bush
and his daughter, Noelle,
finally took a walk around
Boca Grande.

Arnold at carnold@
sun-herald.com.


Gov. Jeb Bush takes a break from time with family on Boca
Grande to talk about his career as governor and his future
plans now that his term is coming to an end.


AOL Bushes remember Ford as leader


BY CHRISTY ARNOLD
STAFF WRITER


Former President George
H.W Bush took timne out of his
vacation\edtnesdav to renmem-n-
ber former President Ford.
"I owe much of ny life in pol-
,.;-itics to Gerald Ford," said Bush,
who spoke at a poditun on the
front steps of the Gasparilla hinn.
Bush could haxe been xice
president to Ford had history
taken another turn.
"Barbara and I were in
Maine. He had the kindness to
All call me up anid say I was not his
choice," Bush said.
...Ford chose New biok Got.
'* Nelson Rockefeller.
"I think he made a good call,"
Bush said.
Bush, who later became %ice
S. president to President Reagan,
served in the Ford adrninistra-
tion as a diplomat to China and
as director of the CIA.

The Bush family, Jeb,.George-and Barbaya, gave a presssqcoference on the steps of the to Ford as a "decent, honorable
Gasparilla Inn to comment on the death of former president Gerald Ford Wednesday. man."


I I


Go.\ leb Bush also spoke
kindly of the former president
Wednesday.
"President Ford is a good role
model for any people in public
ser-ice," Gov.: Jeb Bush said.
Glimpses
It appeared the entire island
turned out Wednesday after-
noon to see the Bush family
pause from fishing, golfing and
relaxing on the coastal commu-
nity.
"I have great admiration for
the president," said Ed Farley,
tromn Atlanta, Ga., who is vaca-
tioning on the island.
Neal and Jan Lea\irt, of
Fallbrook, Calif.. knew the
Bushes had arrived on the
island and figured the news of
Ford's passing would generate
even more iafic in the tiny
town.
"We thought there would
be a news conference," Jan
Leavitt said as she waited:toQ
take photos of the Bush family.
"I've seen Ford on the golf


courses many times (in
California)."
Christina Anderson, of Bath,
Pa., saw the dozens of reporters
and photographers surround-
ed by the dozens and dozens of
islanders gathered outside the
Gasparilla Inn.
"We see them every few
years," said Anderson, armed
with her camera. "Usually, we
just catch glimpses."
Bush is now on the shrinking
list of living former presidents.
Just presidents Bush, Carter
and Clinton remain since
Reagan's death in 2004 and
Ford's passing Tuesday
Many remember Ford as the
man who moved the nation for-
ward after President Nixon's res-
ignation.
"It's a sad thing we're losing
our presidents," Anderson said,
"He brought the country
together."

Ferry service envisioned for waterfront


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Dearborn Street will
emerge as the launching site
for a new ferry service to
Middle Beach, if one local res-
ident's dream comes true.
"The idea of crossing
Lemon Bay on a boat is cer-
tainly not a new one," said
Russ Kyper, 79, of Englewood.
"However, a modem ferry for
public use would be a key
attractor for the Dearborn
destination."
Kyper has huddled with a
consultant who recommended
the Electric Launch Company
(ELCO), a New York firm that
manufactures electric- and
solar-powered launches he
believes would be ideally suited
for Lemon Bay.'
"ELCO makes a 33-foot
electric launch that would
accommodate up to 20 pas-
sengers," Kyper said. He
added its cost would be
between $60,000-$80,000.
"That doesn't count the
costs of permitting the pro-
ject and hiring entities such
as the Army Corps of
Engineers and the Coast
Guard to design, construct
and mark the ferry route,"
Kyper said.
Better depth
Development of the


Lemon Bay waterfront in
Englewood has been a hot
topic to Community Devel-
opment Area advisory boards
for some time. Kyper saw his
idea dovetailing with a recent
suggestion made by CRA
board member John Davison,
who proposed a new pier for
county-owned property at
Harbor Drive or Cherokee
Street.
"I've surveyed the waters at
those two locations and
found the Harbor .Drive site
offers much Better depth for a
boat launch," Kyper said.
A veteran sloop skipper on
Lake Ontario for many years,
Kyper said waterfront com-
munities capitalize ,on their
unique locations by catering
to boaters.
"Take Naples for example,"
Kyper said. "It has a district
right on the water called Tin
City, which is a magnet for the
sailing world. It offers restau-
rants, shops and boutiques of
all kinds to boaters drawn to
its attractive layout and prox-
imity to the water. We could
absolutely do the same thing
here in Englewood.
A reflection
Ted Brovitz, associate
planner from Stantec Con-
sulting, has been called in by
the CRA to assist in the plan-
ning of a project that will


encompass the ferry idea
along with a host of others.
"Consulting on this project
will be done in six months,"
Brovitz promised.
He plans two initial work-
shops .to get public input on
the visioningg" of the project.
They will take place on
Thursday, Dec. 14, and Mon-
day, Dec. 18, at Lemon Bay
Park, 570 Bay Park Boulevard,
Englewood, at 6 p.m.
Residentsare invited to the
workshops to give their opin-
ions on how the waterfront
should look and what it might
include such as docks,
piers, boat launches and so
on.
People who cannot attend
the workshops .can submit
written comments by e-mail
to ewvick\vir@'scgov.net or by
regular mail to Englewood
CRA, 693B Old Englewood
Road, Englewood 34223.
Kyper believed an upgrad-
ed waterfront would do won-
ders for Dearborn Street and
Englewood.
'"A town is a reflection of
what you see when you come
ashore," he said. "Englewood
would certainly benefit from
anyone making the trip on a
ferry." ,

A good New Year's resolution: share


ri ~ ~ ~i ~ I


ELLEN HILLSTROM


Now listen up, you good
people of South Venice
"Beach," it is time for you to
share some of your talents and
tithe to help preserve and
improve the neighborhoods
and beach in the South Venice
Subdivision.
For those who are new to
our community, the South
Venice Civic Association, a
nonprofit volunteer home-
owners association, manages
the civic affairs for 7,500 house-
holds in its service area. The
South Venice Beach Endow-
ment Trust manages the price-
less properties of our beach
ferry service and ramp areas.
Family membership dues of
$50 a year (14 cents a day per
household) enables you to
access what is happening in
the community. You receive a
monthly newsletter to stay
abreast of current events. It also
gives you a voice to express
specific ideas or concerns.
Our members are residents
who care enough to pull
together to improve our
appearance, protect our assets
and gather at meetings and
forums on issues and social
activities.
Thousands of volunteers
over the past 52 years have built
a beautiful and active commu-
nity through the SVGA. The
future of its work depends
upon more neighbors. agreeing
to share with the current volun-
teers.
Time is precious to most
homeowners, but I suggest that
without more participation,
the neighborhood where you
live could be devalued.
Throughthe trust, there are
two user fees $70 a year for
an annual ferry pass and $40 a
year for a ramp pass key. Those
proceeds are budgeted to cover
the operational expenses for
the year.
There are also major im-
provements that need atten-


tion. It is hoped that grants will
assist in covering some of those
needs.
In any event, the trust is tax
exempt so you can make a
'dedtit-dble contribution before
the end of this year.
The Beach Trust Conmittee
consists of volunteers who
share in providing leadership
in deciding the future of our
most important asset, the
beach properties.
We live in an environmen-
tally protected area -truly un-
equaled in its abundance, of
parks, lakes, recreational facili-
ties, wildlife, Gulf property and
Lemon Bay and creek water-
front amenities.
I will be starting my seventh
year as development director
of the SVCA and must say time
really does go fast when you're
having fun.
I have come to love this
unique community and the
devoted volunteers who make
it a better place to be. I'm sin-,
cerely asking others to become
involved in 2007.
Happy NewYear!

WELL BEI.


Reducing stress and grief during the holidays


STAFF REPORT

The holidays are usually a
time of joyful activity. But it is
also a stressful time, and that
stress can be compounded
for those grieving the loss of a
loved one. For these people,
the holidays can serve to
heighten feelings of depres-
sion and loneliness. Ginny
Chappelear, senior bereave-
ment coordinator for Tide-
Well Hospice and Palliative
Care, offers some advice for
reducing stress and depres-
sion during the holidays.


Don't over extend. It's
easy to feel pressured to do
too much during the holiday
season. When physically
tired, one experiences grief
more intensely. Listen to your
voice inside and say no when
you need to.
Be conscious of nutrition.
Additional sugar and alcohol,
which is often prevalent dur-
ing the holidays, can influ-
ence a person's emotional
balance.
Cut yourself a break.
Sometimes the expectations
we have for ourselves are


higher than the expectations
others have for us. Don't feel
that you need to do every-
thing you've done in the past.'
This year can be different.
* Don't try to recreate past
holidays. Attempting to do all
of the activities just as you
have done them in the past
often just emphasizes the
absence of the loved one who
has died. Go to a different
church or attend a different
service. Mix up the foods
served at dinner. Use different
decorations.
Take one day at a time.


New Year's is just one 24-
hour-day like any other.
Sometimes the expectation of
how difficult the holiday will
be is worse than the day itself.
All you need to do is get
through that day.
Honor your loved one. It's
important to acknowledge
the person missing but that
can be done in a controlled
way, like lighting a candle.
Then you can move on with
the day's activities.
Caregivers for the ill can
also experience increased
stress as they try to balance


the activities of the holidays
with the responsibilities of
caring for a loved one. There
are guidelines caregivers can
follow to ease the strain of the
season.
Plan ahead. Consider.
your priorities and stick to
them.
Be realistic. When you are
caring for someone, there is
only so much time to spend
on extra activities. Know your
limits and live with them.
Exercise your faith. Focus
on the spiritual meanings of
the season, not all of the hus-


tie and bustle.
Accept help. Allow those
who care to offer support in
practical ways.
Help is available from other
sources as well With TideWell's
continuum of care, there is a
service for you, whether it be
Journeys HomeCare, Transi-
tions, hospice care or bereave-
ment services. For more infor-

55 million
Americans, mostly women,
are at risk for the bone-
thinning disease known as
osteoporosis. If not prevented, or
if left untreated, bone density will
diminish to the point where fractures
become inevitable, particularly of the
hip, wrist, and spine. While any bone in
the body can be affected, spinal fractures
are of particular concern because they can
cause severe back pain and deformity, such
as "dowager's hump." Not only can
women help themselves by consuming
foods and drinks rich in calcium, they
should avoid colas. Recent research shows
that for women, drinking cola is
associated with lower bone mineral
density in the hips and spine. Women are
also advised to limit their caffeine intake
to avoid osteoporosis.
P.S. Not only is the caffeine in colas
associated with lower bone mineral
density, the phosphoric acid in cola
can cause leeching of calcium from
the bones.

In an instant, the lives of four separate
groups of strangers on three different

beyond anyone's control are a vacation-
ing American couple (Brad Pitt, Cate
Blanchett), a rebellious deaf Japanese
teenager and her father, and a Mexican
. nanny who, without permission, takes
two American children across the border.

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 fish-
erman. 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 extraordi-
nary rough stone. With the help of
Maddy Bowen (Jennifer Connelly), an
American journalist whose idealism is
tempered by a deepening connection
with Archer, the two men embark on a
trek through rebel territory, a journey that
could save Solomon's family and give
Archer the second chance he thought he
would never have.

The History Boys
This film tells the story of an unruly
class of bright, funny history students in
pursuit of an undergraduate place at
Oxford or Cambridge. Bounced between
their maverick English master (Richard
Griffiths), a young and shrewd teacher
hired to up their.test scores (Stephen
Campbell Moore), a grossly out-num-
bered history teacher (Frances de la
Tour), and a headmaster obsessed with
results (Clive Merrison), the boys attempt
to sift through it all to pass the daunting
university admissions process. Their jour-
ney becomes as much about how edu-
cation works, as it is about where educa-

The Pursuit
of Happyness
Chris Gardner (Will Smith) is a bright
and talented, but marginally employed


HOROSCOPE Dec. 29- Jan. 4


ARIES (March 21-April
19). There's been a
battle going on in
your work life: product vs.
process. The connection clicks
today. You can't consistently
get a fine product if you're
unhappy with how you got it.

STAURUS (April 20-May
20). Your vision is
evolving. What you
once saw as a tedious task is
now an opportunity for you to
stretch your spirit, increase dig-
nity and practice integrity.
Perhaps a Libra person is'
involved in the change.

GEMINI (May 21-June
21). You do your best
to avoid conformity.
But sometimes conforming is
the best choice. If you're asked
to follow the rules today, you
can do it without taking things
personally. The big picture is
grand.

CANCER (June 22-July
22). Like the shape-
shifting moon that's
your ruling body, you're always
able to reinvent yourself.
Others see you in a new and
flattering light. Accept your.
props with grace you
earned them.

) LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).
Karma zings back in
fast motion and it's
so obvious that you'd have to
try hard not to get the mes-
sage. You can always tell what
you're giving judging by what
comes back. Adjust according-
ly.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
22). You're in the mood
to reach unprecedent-
ed heights. You see the obsta-
cles in y6ur way, and all signs
are go. The question is: Who
are you going to take along on
this flight of fancy?


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct.
23). Because all
humans share the
same DNA, no matter where
we come from or what we look
like, we're all from the same
race. Remembering this helps
you find a way to get along
with that incorrigible some-
one.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
0 21). An old story has a
new slant. You're
smarter this time around and
won't make the same mistake
twice. Everything culminates
tonight. Enjoy the finale with a
-Leo person.

_SAGITTARIUS (Nov.
.. 22-Dec.21). As a fire
sign, you'd rather take
a chance and blaze a new path
than follow that same old nar-
row road. And when people
say,"What about plan B?"you
can laugh.

SCAPRICORN (Dec. 22-
Jan. 19). Some accuse
you of being a worka-
holic. What they don't under-
stand is that your business is
more than a moneymaking
venture. It's also a way to get
more out of your life.

| AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-
Feb. 18). You may be
aware of others'dark
secrets or personal business,
but you were never the type to
gossip. You do your best to
understand what makes peo-
ple tick and use the informa-
tion to be more sympathetic.

k PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20). Your responsibili-
ties get weighty.
Relatives offer whatever kind
of support is easiest for them
that is, if you ask.
Unfortunately, hinting proba-
bly won't be enough in this
astral climate.

I A JFSEDITOR

Mea culpa
My very first editor at the
Venice Gondolier Sun told me
never to assume anything.
Most of the time I manage to
follow that sage advice. When
I don't, I am .always sorry.
Such is the case with the-
recent article I wrote about
Venice ballerina Ashley Basz-


to, who performed as the
young Clara in'the Dec. 23
Sarasota Ballet of Florida pro-
duction of "The Nutcracker."
Despite interviewing her
face-to-face at the Florida
Center for the Performing
Arts ballet rehearsal room, I
neglected to double-check
the spelling of her last name,
so I got it wrong. I wanted to
mention my faux pas here, so
everyone would have the cor-
rect spelling of her name.
,Sliding along,
On Saturday, Dec. 30, at 10
a.m., Laura Wewerka of the
Gopher Tortoise Council will
present a slide presentation
and lecture about gopher tor-
toises at Crowley Museum &
Nature Center. The program
will include information


about life history, conserva-
tion measures, habitat and
distribution of this species of
special concern.
Urban development and
an upper respiratory virus are
causing gopher tortoises to
decline throughout their
range. Tortoise burrows pro-
vide refuge for more than 360
species of animals, including
other reptiles, mammals,
amphibians and insects.
Wewerka is the volunteer

cation chair for the Gopher ..

the end to Chapter 90, I see
what a masochist I've been.
So for this week's column
(and for my own therapy) I
thought I'd strike back by talk-
ing about the most common
failings of the pompous
grammar police mistakes
they're likely to make even as
they're criticizing others.
Take, for example, this rant
posted by Shannon at a site
called "The Sneeze":
< (A) friend has a tendency
to throw in superflous vowels
in words such as "real-a-tor",
and consonants in words like
"and" when she means "an". >
Now, setting aside that
misspelling of "superfluous,"
notice how Shannon puts her


comma and period outside
the quotation marks. Well, as
I've discussed here many
times, in American English,
periods and commas go in-
side quotation marks, colons
and semicolons go outside
and with exclamation points
and question marks, it de-
pen.ds on whether they per-
tain to the quoted matter or
to the sentence as a whole.
Here's ,another punctua-
tion flub from someone nam-
ed Jenstate posting at "Metro-
dad: Confessions of a Gram-
mar Nerd."

B 01 VENICE GONDOLIER SUN



Wife wants to ease friction between husband and nanny


DEAR ABBY



DEAR ABBY: I have a seri-
ous problem that is taking its
toll on my marriage. My hus-
band, "Lewis," and I recently
hired a live-in nanny who
moved six states away to work
for us. She is great with the
kids, polite and receptive to
me but when it comes to
my husband, "Celeste" can
barely bring herself to be civil.


Lewis and I were both
committed to making this a
rewarding experience for
Celeste. He even invited her
to play darts with him in his
dart league. Celeste has
become close friends with
many of. his friends and
makes disrespectful "humor-
ous" comments about him or
to him all the time.
Lewis has tried to be nice
to her, but he has reached the
end of his rope, and they can't
seem to work it out. How can
I help this immature young
lady realize that mean com-
ments, even in jest, sting?
Celeste is about to lose her
job. JUST ABOUT HAD IT
IN CONNECTICUT
DEAR JUST ABOUT HAD
IT: You and Celeste are over-
due for a frank talk about how
this situation came about.
Most employers do not invite


their nannies to socialize the
way your husband did. Is it
possible that he did some-
thing that she considered to
be inappropriate, and this is
her way of getting back at
him?
Even if that is not the case,
it is clear that Celeste's pres-
ence in your household is cre-
ating tension and discomfort.
And from my perspective, it
would be better for all con-
cerned if she found other
employment.
DEAR ABBY: Could you
please clarify something for
my husband and me? My
brother and his wife have
been divorced for several
years and have two children
together. His ex-wife has
nothing to do with my chil-
dren. Should they still refer to
her as "Aunt Julie"? I say .no.
.After all, my brother is


divorced and this would be
very uncomfortable for his
new wife, should the day
come that he ever remarries.
My husband says that Julie
is still their aunt because she
is the mother of their cousins.
Who is right? CAROL IN
GEORGIA
DEAR CAROL: The reality
today is that many marriages
do not make it to the finish
line. That, however, does not
erase the fact that an ex-
spouse existed, or the role he
or she played. Your brother's
new wife will understand that
he was previously married
and should not feel in any
way threatened that "Aunt
Julie" is mentioned once in a
while if ever. I agree with
your husband.
DEAR ABBY: I am 38 years
-old. In 2000,1 I separated from
my husband, and in July 2003,


my divorce was final. In April
2004, my husband (or ex)
passed away.
I was previously seeking a
Catholic annulment. After my
husband passed, the church
no longer required it because
the "till death do you part"
clause had been lived up to.
(Or died down to.) Therefore,
am I widowed or divorced? -
A LITTLE CONFUSED IN
FLORIDA
DEAR CONFUSED: In the
eyes of the state of Florida,
you are divorced. In the eyes
of the church, you are wid-
owed. Take your pick.
DEAR ABBY: I received a
flag from a memorial service
for a friend who had no fami-
ly. I was this person's closest
friend. The flag remains
stored in a box, unused and
packed away.
Would it be wrong or disre-.


spectful to my country or to
my deceased friend to allow
my parents to fly this flag on
their flagpole at home? -
WONDERING IN CONCORD,
N.H.
DEAR WONDERING: As
long as the flag was treated
with respect taken down at
night. and not allowed to
become tattered and faded.
because of exposure to the
elements I think it would
be a loving tribute to your
friend if it were displayed.
Better that than folded away
and forgotten.

WORD Fromlast u


"Where's Elmo At?" ... It's all I
can do not to throw some-
thing at him and yell, "It's
'Where's Elmo?', you idiot!">
Once you've stopped reel-
ing at the idea of Elmo-in-
spired family violence, notice
that comma after the single
quotation mark. What's up
with that? Did Jenstate think
that her question mark need-
ed help? In these situations,
one punctuation mark is
always enough.
Another topic that rallies
the outraged grammar spam-
mers is "less" versus "fewer."
They all seem to get it half
right,, as Metrodad himself
demonstrates.
< I am a complete (and
borderline dysfunctional)
grammar and punctuation
freak. It's not that I get ap-
palled when I hear someone
butcher the English language.
It's more like every (expletive


deleted) bone inside me
writhes'in pain. ... Witness
my phone conversation to-
night with Carl's Cheese
Steaks...
Me: "Does the steak chili
have beans?"
Carl's: "Yeah, a few. Less
than regular chili though."
Me: "You mean fewer?"
Carl's: "What?"
Me: "You" mean your chill
has fewer beans, not less."
Carl's: "Are you (expletive
deleted) kidding me? You
want the God (expletive delet-
ed) chili or not?" >
Now, what'we have here is
someone who's way, way too
proud of his basic grasp of
"less" and "fewer." As Met-
rodad knows, "less" applies to
singular things which usu-
ally means mass things like
"gasoline," "trouble" and "in-,
telligence." Conversely, "few-
er" applies to plural things -


which usually means count-
able things like "items,"
"friends" and "legs to stand
on."
But common sense will tell
you and the experts will con-
firm that when you're talking

about beans, you're not talk-
ing about them individually.
You're talking about them as a
mass. That's why someone
serving you beans would
never ask, "How many do you
want?" They would ask, "How

much?" Even though "beans"
is plural, in this context it's
really a mass noun. And that's
why the supposedly inferior
restaurant worker was right
and the smug, ranting gram-
mar "freak" Was wrong.


And just writing about that
here is better than any thera-
py I can imagine.

Dud nodded.
"Well then," said Doc, "it
looks like you are going to
have a proclivity for saying
intransigence this month.
That's a veritable plethora of
proclivity, my friend."
Dud pulled out a pencil
and grabbed a napkin.
"How do you spell it, Doc?"
"Spell what?"
"Plethora."
We just groaned. Some-
times education can be ugly.

colleges and universities across
the country that offer Hispanic
students a solid chance to
achieve academic success.
"One of the defining ele-
ments of life in these United
States is that here it is virtually
never too late to return to col-

Richard Bradway & Associates is pleased to announce the
addition of Jim White to their team of associates.

Jim, a veteran Realtor, moved to the area in 2004 after having
worked in management with Brooks Bros. in Baltimore, MD,
Tysons Comer, VA and Washington, D.C. His dream, though, like
many other people, was to make Florida his home. Searching on
the Internet, he narrowed the area to our beautiful West Coast and
looked at property from Bradenton to Ft. Myers. By chance, his
travels took him west across the Venice Avenue bridge. It was love
at first sight. Jim has been a Venice resident since! His love of our
area has helped him make home buying dreams come true for
many others.

Jim White can be reached at 230 So. Tamiami Trail, on the Island
of Venice, (941)412-3323, or on his cellular, (941) 223-5378

Holiday toy drive for




area children a success


STAFF REPORT

The Community Relations
Council (CRC) of the Sara-
sota-Manatee Jewish Feder-
ation partnered with Jewish
Family & Children's Service
on a special holiday toy drive
project to benefit needy local
children and families.
JFCS' Building Strong
Families program, a home-


lessness prevention program,
works with families from all
backgrounds in the Sarasota
and Manatee area: To ensure
that these clients could cele-
brate the holiday season, the
agency identified those fami-
lies in greatest need and
asked CRC to help collect toys
and gifts for 28 children from
10 families so the parents
could select a gift and give it


to their children for the holi-
day season.
Drop-off points for the
CRC toy drive were at the
Federation and the Jewish
Center of Venice. More than
100 toys were donated by
many caring members of the
community.

MADISON frn ageIB


Although the disorder is
usually inherited, Madison
developed 01 before birth by
spontaneous mutation, or a
natural alteration of cellular
structure.
"She was born with 14 frac-
tures. Most of them were
healed; the rib fractures and
the leg fractures were fresh,"
says Jennifer McLeod, Madi-
son's 26-year-old mom.
When she was born, the 5-
pound, 10-ounce baby was
too small for surgery. The
fractures that had occurred
during the birthing process
were left to heal on their own
as a one-day-old Madison lay
in pain.
The disorder also severely
bows her legs for which she
will face future surgeries. The
surgeries, called rodding,
splint the long bones of the
leg. The bone is cut in one or
more places, straightened
and then "threaded" onto
metal rods.
Madison can't walk.
Something that is painful
for a six-year-old as she
watches classmates run and
play. Yet this young child is an
optimist.
"I can wheel myself," says,
Madison, as the 28-pound.girl
sits in her wheelchair.
She experiences occasion-
al back pain because she also
suffers from cervical kypho-
sis, an abnormal curvature of
the neck.
This is courage.
A little girl like any other
Rising above the pain in
Madison's world is a young
girl as normal as any other
student who attends VES
every day and has no physical
challenges.
"I just like painting and
drawing with crayons," she
says.
At recess Madison is on the
playground with VES
Teacher's Aide Mary Foster,
going for walks with her
friends. Foster is with Madi-
son throughout her .school
day to watch out for the girl
and assist her.
This may be the time when
Madison's disorder and her
need for a wheelchair are the
most obvious to her. Even at
age 6, this bright little girl
expresses her wisdom of her
condition.
"I feel like I'm ,different
from the other kids," Madison
calmly says.
Her classmates appear to
think differently.
Her friends Caitlin and
Cassie often take walks with
Madison during recess.
Then there is her home. It
has been adapted slightly by
Madison's parents. Her fa-
vorite foods and drinks are on


the bottom shelf of the refrig-
erator, and there are more pil-
lows and blankets in the liv-
ing room for her comfort and
safety.
In the privacy of her home,
Madison can move about
without her chair by using her
arms to scoot along the floor.
On school mornings, Ma-
dison's house is like any other
where a 6-year-old is getting
steady for school. Madison
eats her favorite breakfast:
cereal Fruity Pebbles,
dresses herself, and then lies
down to rest before her momI
takes her to school, which she
does every morning.
After school and on week-
ends, Madison and her mom
and dad sometimes "go
somewhere special."
What makes Madison's
house her home are stuffed
princesses, two cats and a
stuffed pony named "Butter-
fly."
"Roger is like a Minx cat;
he's black and his paws are
white and the tip of his nose is
white," Madison says. "Cleo's
all black and she has a long
tail."
For the hopeful 6-year-old
there also are dreams that go
far beyond first grade.
"Well, I do want to be a;
teacher when I grow up
someday," Madison says.
Madison's mom and dad
It isn't difficult to imagine
the physical realities of two
young parents who are care-
ful to restrict their daughter's
physical activities to avoid
broken bones.
It is difficult to imagine die
psychological
and emotional
realities of two
young parents
who must place
those physical
restrictions on
their daughter
as they watch
other children
run and play.
Jennifer Mc-
Leod and Don-
ny Badalamen-
ti, Madison's
parents, have
been together
10 years. They
met when they
attended Ve-
nice High
School.
Donny owns
a lawn care
business and
Jennifer works Madison in
for a local re-
tailer.
Donny came home from a
business trip in New Orleans
Dec. 24 to be with his family,
but he goes back after the hol-
idays.


The couple's life begins as
any young couple's. Wishing
to start a family, Jennifer
becomes pregnant.
Jennifer decides to have an
ultrasound to determine the
sex of the baby. Their lives are
about to change.
"They told me 'It's a girl ...
Everything's looking good,
but we want you back next
month' ... and then I got wor-
ried," Jennifer says.
Next month brought
Jennifer the news that no
mom-to-be wants to hear:
There is a problem with her
unborn child.
"They told me that her legs
were severely bowed and she
was small ... They had about
50 things they thought it
would be," said Jennifer.'
May 24,2000 Birth day
Madison Marli Badala-
menti's parents welcome
their new daughter into the
world on May24, 2000.
But also on this day, the
doctors begin tests and
observation of the newborn.
Soon Jennifer and Donny
are informed by the pediatri-
cian that their daughter does
have 01. One of many symp-
toms that lead to the doctors'
diagnosis is blue sclera. The
whites of Madison's eyes are
blue.
"I was devastated, devas-
tated and I just felt so bad for
her," Jennifer recalls. "I was 20
years old, just turned 20,
young mother ... I was just
really worried."
Six days after Madison's
birth, parents and child are
.allowed to go home, where a

breaks in Madison's brittle
bones.
The advice is as limited as
are the remedies to avoid
breaks. Jennifer is told to be


banish class at VES.


frightened Jennifer begins to
raise her young and frail
daughter. Nurses have
instructed her on the things
she can do to help avoid


careful and try not to let her
daughter fall.
The first few days for
Jennifer are an ordeal.
"Pretty much I'm just


scared," Jennifer recalls.
Yet the young baby seems
normal to her parents, even
though the child cries during
the healing of the 14 birthing
breaks.
The young
parents begin
to doubt the
diagnosis. Two
weeks after
they get home
from the hos-
pital, the cou-
ple take Ma-
dison to ano-
ther pediatri-
cian. That pe-
diatrician
confirms the
diagnosis. Jen-
nifer now real-
T 'r izes they were
1 in denial at
that time.
The next day
Madison rolls
over and
breaks her
right arm.
It is her first
post-birthing
break.
Learning to cope
The broken arm is the cup
of reality Jennifer needs to
awaken to each morning, she


must learn to live with caring
for her daughter. She also
learns she must balance her
desire to overprotect Madi-
son with the child's need to
live as normal a life as possi-
ble.
Jennifer doesn't rush to the
hospital for X-rays every time
she suspects the child may
have a break.
Once, however, after Ma-
dison sneezes and complains
of back pain, X-rays are taken.
There are no broken bones
and the child's pain soon sub-
sides.
However, the X-ray does
show there are two healed
vertebra fractures. Jennifer
knows nothing of the breaks.
Whenever the breaks had
occurred, Madison had either
not felt the pain or had slight
pain that she did not com-
plain about to her mom.
"It blew my mind that she
has two healed vertebra frac-
tures, and she never com-
plained about them, never,
ever," Jennifer says.
.There are times Madison
talks to her mom about walk-
ing, running or jumping on a
trampoline.
With Madison's physical
activity limited, Jennifer pro-
vides other educational and.
fun things that fill her daugh-
ter's life. The young girl
paints. Recently she and her
classmates had their artwork
displayed at the local art cen-
ter.
Madison also enjoys play-
ing with a small piano.
Madison loves to go shop-
ping.
In the summers she swims
in her grandfather's pool, "but
not when it's cold,'
"She's lacking physically,
but'mentally she's unbeliev-
able," Jennifer says.
.Madison's future
After, the three rodding
surgeries Madison will have
in the summer of 2007, she
will face the challenges of
physical therapy with the
positive goal, not guarantee,
of walking.
When she gets into her 20s
she may face partial or com-
plete hearing loss., ,
Three things Madison
Marli Badalamenti will al-
ways have in her future are
two very loving and caring
parents who instill in their
daughter the third thing: a
positive and loving attitude of
life.
But Madison already
knows that.
"I think that they're the
greatest parents in the world,"
she says.

Builder made a good house better

Xeriscaping conserves water while emphasizing the tropical character of the house at 609
Gardenia Drive in Venice.


No one can see through the tropical setting that insures privacy for the pool area.


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Houses that can stand
the test of time begin
with good bones. An
example is a Golden Beach
home that was built in 1983
and recently updated.
Formal French doors lead-
ing into the great room only
hint at the tropical paradise
beyond the entrance. The
removal of one kitchen wall
opened the entire house, cre-
ating a circular traffic pattern
that facilitates serving in the
dining room as well as casual
entertaining that encompass-
es the pool deck, family room
and great room areas.
The family room's original
coral-stone fireplace was a
selling point for the present
owners. With indirect lighting
and the new open kitchen,
plus adjacent bamboo-en-
hanced lanai wet bar area, the
fireplace is one of several sell-
ing points.
Granite counters and a
new island enhance the
kitchen, which has new cabi-
netry, pot and pan drawers,
pullouts in lower cabinets and.
all the bells and iwhisdes ex-
pected in a new home, in-
cluding two pantries and
glass cabinet doors. The pass
through to the lanai has been
enhanced with real bamboo
from a neighbor's yard. The
owner-builder fashioned the
bamboo into a tropical tiki
bar area that fits with the set-
ting of the caged heated pool
and lanai area. Just off the
pool area is an extension of


the cage, offering another eat-
ing or sitting area with com-
plete privacy.
Crown molding has been
added throughout the house,
even in areas with vaulted
ceilings.
On the south side of the
three-bedroom, split-plan
house, the master bath opens
to another private garden
area complete with a spe-
cial outdoor shower that
might have been created for
Gilligan's island, except that
this one functions perfectly.
The shower head is encased
in a hollowed out coconut.
The hot and cold water mix-
ing control knob also is en-
cased in a similar hollowed-
out coconut. A gate allows
those returning from the
beach to use this shower for
clean-up before they go back
into the house.
To insure more time to
enjoy its location within
Golden Beach and with a
short walk to Venice Beach,
the environmentally con-
scious owners have xeriscap-
ed the lot, using native and
native-friendly plants to con-
serve water while adding pri-
vacy as well as a tropical look.
Listed for $825,000 by
RE/MAX Properties Realtors
Kim Stevens and Lorette
Richard, the house can be
seen Sunday, Dec. 31, from 1
to 3 p.m. during an open
house, and at other times by
appointment. The house is at
609 Gardenia Drive, which
runs north off Villas Drive in
Golden Beach.

6230 PETS &
LIVESTOCK

Baby needs a "forever
home"! She will be two this
spring, apparently does not
like dogs bigger than her,
but gets along fine with the
small dogs.
She is up to date on shots,
heartguard and is spayed.
She is curious, playful and
friendly. At 61 pounds, she
is small for a Rotfweiler, 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 go attention.
Baby would probably do
better in a one dog home,
or one with another dog
that is smaller. Baby would
be best placed in a home
with adults/older children
since she is unaccustomed
to children.
If you think you have a
place in your home and
heart for a very sweet lov-
ing dog, who just wants to
love you in return, please
call EARS, 941-475-0636

Six Steps


Tired of trying to make your way around
that old blender, bassinet, those bikes and boxes of
cast-off clothing? Schedule a garage sale to convert.
those extra items into cash.



2. Ask your friends if they want to join in. More
merchandise means more shoppers and more money
for everyone.



3. Clean and polish your items. Fold clothes
neatly and arrange them by size and gender. Group
small pieces (like jewelry) together into plastic bags
so they're easy to price and display.


V U,


to Success


49. Arrange for plenty of tables and hanging
items so you can display everything prominently.
When it's time, set up your sale so people can move
around easily.


5 Make a list of your best items, and then call
The Sun Classified to schedule your ad. Your ad rep
can help you create an ad that's sure to get customers
calling!


Through The Sun Classified, you'll send the
news of your sale to thousands of potential buyers.
So, get out your change box and get ready to sell!
