Giorgio Orofino's pas-
sion is to create a cul-
tural exchange between
Venice, Fla., and Italy
via a project at the
Venice Municipal
Airport. He believes he
has as good a chance as
any of his larger com-
petitors in selling his
idea to city council, in
part because it doesn't
touch Lake Venice Golf
Club.

NEWS EDITOR

When David Jacaruso and
Giorgio Orofino submitted a
proposal to build a Disney-
like themed hotel The
Colosseum Project on city
of Venice airport property,
they thought it would be the
largest in size and scope.
It turned out to be one of
the smallest.
Instead of coming into the
city hall arena today (Wed-
nesday) prepared to do battle
as Goliath, Jacaruso, with
Market Facilitators Group in
Sarasota, and Orofino, whose
family construction business
morphed into a hotel man-
agement and tourism busi-
ness in Italy over the past few
decades, are relishing their
role as the underdog.
They dropped by the
Gondolier Sun office last week
- to describe the project.

'Low impact'
In terms of investment
alone, their project is the
smallest of five submitted
proposals to build a hotel on
Venice Municipal Airport
property.
At $80 million plus, The
Colosseum Project would
cover 20-30 acres, with a hotel
and convention center em-
ploying 400 people.
Orofino hopes his "low-
impact project" will appeal to
city council, and work to his
advantage.
Buying Lake Venice Golf
Club's lease is not even on
Orofino's radar. He doesn't
intend to build on golf course

Council upset at coalition letter


Venice Neighborhoods Coalition may have
crossed a line with a letter to Florida's congres-.
sional delegation requesting it not fund the U.S.
41 Venice Bypass widening project.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Some Venice City Council
members took turns Tuesday
criticizing the Venice Neigh-
borhoods Coalition for telling
Florida's congressional dele-
gation to reject transporta-
tion funds for Venice.
The request was made in a
March 28 letter, discovered
recently by council members,
signed by VNC President Sue
Lang.
In it, she calls a request for
supplemental funds by the
city to help makeVenice adis-
aster recovery facility "point-
less."
"If there is an event to the
north or south of Venice,


there are several other air-
ports and facilities on the
mainland, vell away from the
Gulf that can serve those
areas," Lang
wrote.
Not sur-
prising to
council mem-
bers, she also
asked law-
makers not to
provide funds
for an airport
access road L
that would be Lang
required if
airport property is developed.
But it was the coalition's
position that the federal gov-
ernment should turn down
the city's request for $75 mil-


lion to widen U.S. 41 Venice
Bypass that drew the sharpest
response.
Council member Rick Tacy
took the coalition to task for
the letter, which he said was
filled with "factual lies and
inaccuracies."
" ."Unfortunately, you have a
group that saysVenice doesn't
support the bypass (widen-
ing) project. That's what
they're actively (urging)," said
City Manager Marty Black.
Lang called the funding
requests "a thinly disguised
series of new pork barrel
requests to reward special
interests."
"The city of Venice's real
interest in these funding
requests is to supplement its
discretionary fund and to put
money in the pockets of cer-
tain developers," she wrote.
Outraged, Tacy requested
city staff to respond to the let-
ter.
"We can't let this one go


(unanswered)," said Tacy.
Council member John
Simmonds said he believes
the coalition's real motive
may be to dry up federal
matching grants for the air-
port.
That would thwart resur-
facing plans for one of the air-
port's main runways.
Improved airport facilities
and development of the sur-
rounding areas would pre-
sumably attract more air traf-
fic, something the coalition is
steadfastly against.
"That's what they want ...
to see the grants restricted,"
Simmonds said.
Permit fees hiked
The city of Venice is keep-
ing its minor permit fee
intact, but nearly all others
increase as of today, April 25.

One of the biggest buzz-
words of the 2007 Florida leg-
islative session is "portability."
Until Friday, the one miss-
ing piece from the House
Republican-initiated proper-
ty tax reform plan was provid-
ing some way for homeown-
ers to keep at last part of their
homestead exemptions when
they need to relocate.


One lane of northbound
U.S. 41 starting at a point
south of Bird Bay Road will
be closed beginning at 9
p.m. Thursday, April 26, for a
major traffic shift to newly
paved lanes between Bird
Bay Road and the Roberts
Bay Bridge.
The traffic shift is expect-
ed to take about four hours
to complete.


The House Policy & Budget
Council approved Friday a
pair of committee bills that
would introduce "portability"
into the Florida homestead
laws.
Both bills would offer vot-
ers a constitutional amend-
ment. The only difference is
that one referendum would
be held in the 2008 general
election, while the other
Please see HOUSE, 7A


The lane closure, which 's
not expected to affect south-
bound U.S. 41 traffic, is need-
ed so, work crews can stripe
the area where the original
and new lanes merge. The
traffic shift will enable work-
ers to continue improve-
ments to the Venice Bypass
Interchange and along U.S.
41 between the interchange
and Colonia Road.

776 corridor group sets goals, strategies


The objective of attaining scenic highway status
for State Road 776 moved forward as the group
got input from Metropolitan Planning


Organization officials.

BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER
The Corridor Advocacy
Group measures its road to
success one meeting at a
time.
CAG's goal is to attain
scenic highway status for
&State,,Road 776. Friday's CAG
meeting at Lemon Bay Park
garnered valuable input from
local citizens and representa-
tives from the Metropolitan
Planning Organizations of
Sarasota-Manatee and Char-
lotte County-Punta Gorda. ,


"We got on track and I
think people know where
we're headed now," said
Kathryn Ortega, a planner
with Parsons, Brinckerhoff,
Quade & Douglass Inc., a
Tampa planning firm.
Ortega spearheads the
group along with her associ-
ate, Brian Bollas, and Manon
Lavoie, community liaison
with the Florida Department
of Transportation.
"The Scenic Highways
Advisory Committee meets in
October, so we need to get the
designation application to


them before (then)," Ortega
said.
"It needs to be completed
by the end of July for review
(by FDOT)," said Lavoie. "The
ultimate goal is, there is fund-
ing out there. If you're a
scenic highway, there's more
of a chance you will get it, for
all sorts of things."
These include landscap-
ing, signage, environmental
centers, road lighting and
better public access to recre-
ational activities.
"The MPO is .a support
agency to help groups like
this that want to establish a
scenic designation," said
Mark Gumula, MPO director
of Charlotte County-Punta
Gorda, who was joined by
associate Bob Herrington,
planning manager of the


Sarasota-Manatee MPO.
Gumula and Herrington
helped the group frame lan-
guage in its declaration of
goals, objectives and strate-
gies that would favorably res-
onate with state and local
governments and planning
officials.
"We have a process for
establishing (scenic desig-
nation) and really make it
work, through grants and
applications and so forth,"
Gumula added. "You want
'this group to be community
initiated, so they've got to
carry the ball."
The next CAG meeting will
be 9:30 a.m. Friday, May 11 at
Lemon Bay Park.

Tropical Bob

warns: Bee wary

Remember when miners
took caged canaries into mines?
If a bird died, it warned of an
unseen hazard that could
imperil the larger lifeform. The
miners fled the danger.
Now, what are we to make
of recent accounts of honey-
bees disappearing by themil-
lions? Apparently, the bees
don't die; they simply vanish. ,
Kind of like an alien bee
abduction.
The "why" behind what is ,- ,
being called "colony collapse" ,.. S.,
is a mystery. But bees are bio- .JJ'.'
logical indicators of environ-
mental health, so we better TROPICAL BOB
find the cause. And soon. .. ;,
These bees are our can-
aries.
We're getting a warning.

Airport to get private radio frequency


Venice Municipal Airport radio towers will get a
new piece of equipment in May allowing pilots to
communicate with the airport on a dedicated
radio frequency.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
Venice Municipal Airport
radio towers will begin com-
municating on a private fre-
quency beginning next
month.
Pilots have been made
aware of the change for
months through local and
regional trade publications.
Courtesy of the Federal
Aviation Administration and
Federal Communications
Department, the common
traffic advisory frequency for
Venice Municipal Airport will
move from 122.70 to 122.725
on May 16.
But airport officials and
local pilots are being encour-
aged to monitor both fre-
quencies to help educate
those who might be working
off old information.
"We'll monitor both fre-
quencies for a while to inform
pilots," said Nick Carlucci,


Venice Aviation Society Inc.
president and member of the
Venice Airport Advisory
Committee.
"There will be a period of
confusion."
The notification will
appear in future issues of the
FAA's Airport Facility Di-
rectory, which lists technical
data for each airport and pro-
vides remarks on Venice's jet
aircraft voluntary noise-
abatement procedures and
preferred departure routes.
It's also in VASI publications
and on its Web site, and in
other industry publications.
Clear improvement
Pilots say the new radio
tuner will be one of the more
significant improvements in
airport safety at Venice
Municipal Airport in years.
In addition to clear com-
munications, the tuner also
controls airport runway
lights, which pilots can turn


"This is huge, as it
relates to the pilot's
operating environ-
ment."
Nick C:iu P 1.,ir-,- Z: of the
Venice ^ .,.
%z-, Inc.



on and off at night by remote
control simply by keying their
radio microphones on and
off.
Those preparing to land
and take off atVenice's airport
currently listen to a mix of
radio chatter from Van-
denberg Airport in Tampa,
Sebring Regional and other
airports that share 122.70.
If you are in the sky over
Venice preparing to land and
you're trying to radio other
pilots of your intentions, the
garble of more than two voic-
es at a time can get quite dis-
tracting, Carlucci said.
"This is huge, as it relates
to the pilot's operating envi-


ronment," Carlucci said.
What's being replaced is a
crystal radio tuner-receiver
that can't be changed, elec-
tronically or otherwise. It's
hard wired, so to speak, to a
particular frequency.
With radio frequencies in
short supply, the dedicated
frequency was heralded by
VASI, which lobbied for the
new tuner over the past two
years.
It's even more important
for nonto%%er controlled air-
ports like Venice's.
"The basic difference be-
tween operating at a tower-
controlled airport and one
without an operating control
tower is between instructions
and advisories," according to
a publication by the Air Safety
Foundation.
"Tower controllers issue
taxi, departure and arrival
instructions for pilots to fol-'
low on specific frequencies.
At nontowered airports, you
will hear advisories on a CTAE,
but the responsibility for col-
lision avoidance, sequencing
and knowing the local proce-
dures lies solely with the
pilot."

Police supervisors, city closer to agreement


The sergeants and lieutenants were willing to
drop a request for a pension cost-of-living
increase in order to focus on other issues.


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER

Tabling economic issues
until their next meeting,
negotiators for the city of
Venice and the sergeants and
lieutenants bargaining unit of
the Fraternal Order of Police
were able to reach agreement
on several other items Tues-
day.
At their previous meeting
April 9, the FOP/S&L repre-
sentatives had asked an
annual 3-percent cost-of-liv-
ing adjustment to be added to
the Police Pension Plan.
Since retirement benefits
had never previously been
included in the police con-
tracts, the city suggested they
think seriously about whet-
her they wanted to open the


door to collective bargaining
on their pension provisions.
During the two-week
interval between sessions, the
union did reconsider, and
offered to withdraw the COLA
request in the interest of mov-
ing on to other issues.
"We only ask," said FOP
Staff Representative Bill
Hastings, "that you exercise
any influence you might have
on the Police Pension Board
to push for approval of the
COLA by the city council."
"Not only have the existing
pensioners fallen behind in
their benefits," he said, "but it
is also an issue with the new
group of potential police
recruits. They are very astute
as they compare the agencies
to which they might apply,
and a pension COLA is some-


thing they look for. It can
make the difference in
whether or not they choose
Venice."
'Only so much money'
The withdrawal of the
COLA request came as some-
thing of a relief to the city's
negotiators. They had asked
the union at the last meeting
to provide cost figures in that
regard.
"If that issue were going to
be pursued," said City
Attorney Bob Anderson, "we
would certainly need to see
an actuarial study projecting
the potential cost before we
could finalize our position on
any of the other economic
issues, such as salaries. We
have only so much money to
work with.
"Now that the COLA is off
the table," he said "we can
start developing a financial
counterproposal based on
the funding we have avail-


able."
Allowing for the time
needed for the city to com-
plete its work, the next nego-
tiating session was scheduled
for Wednesday, May 16, at 10
am.
In the meantime, the
union will prepare a study of
its own, reflecting a compari-
son of its benefits with the
benefits of other area law
enforcement agencies.
"The city keeps referring to
the information in the
Evergreen Study," said Lt. Ron
Solanes, "which said employ-
ee benefits in Venice are gen-
erally much better than the
survey group."
"That may be true for the
general employees," he said,
"but we think the findings will
be different if we compare
police-to-police. Whether it
be in the pension, vacation,
sick leave, uniform allow-
ances or a number of other
things, Venice may not com-


pare so well. 19
We want the
city to look at ,
that instead '
of lumping
us in with
everyone
else."
Positive Anderson
direction
Before the meeting con-
cluded, the two parties
reached tentative agreement
on four noneconomic issues:
The city agreed to retain
the provision allowing offi-
cers retiring with 10 to 20
years service to purchase
their service weapons, and
those with more than 20 years
to keep the weapon at no
cost.
The city agreed to the
union's proposal that the use
of FOP time bank hours for
union business not be subject
to specific limitations, except
for, approval by the police


chief.
It was agreed that pay
during any declared emer-
gency would be "in accor-
dance with the then-existing
City of Venice Civil Emer-
gency Pay Policy." Though
that policy now provides for
double-time pay, 'it was
understood that the provision
might change, either upward
or downward, depending on
a number of factors.
The union agreed to the
city's proposal that physical
exams will be provided
"annually," instead of specifi-
cally in the employee's birth
month.
"We're still moving in a
positive direction," said
FOP/S&L Chairman Lt. Tom
McNulty. "If we can continue
in this fashion, I'm sure we
will come to an agreement
that is fair to both sides."

County explores new kind of zoning district


The district is designed to integrate the kinds of
mixed-use and pedestrian-friendly places citizens


want in new development

BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Proposed new county reg-
ulations would change how
the county regulates urban
development, provided the
code is adopted by the coun-
ty commissioners in July.
During a workshop
Monday, county planners
and consultants from Dover
Kohl and Spikowski Planning
Associates educated the pub-
lic on the new form-based
zoning district. Designed
uniquely for Sarasota County,
it focuses on how a place

addition, this process seeks to
define the manner in which
new development can occur
while blending into the sur-
rounding neighborhoods.,
"It's going to have clear
implications for development
potential on all the commer-
cial areas on Jacaranda
Boulevard and Center Road,"
Lewis said.
Lewis said Englewood

zoning district over the
Englewood core, discuss how

process mirroring consulting
firm Stantec's current revital-
ization efforts.
"You're starting to see
more people wanting to do
mixed-use zoning districts
and this is one of the better
ways to do it," Lewis said.
Lewis said public input
was essential to determine
the direction of the new zon-
ing district. There will be a
public hearing in May with
the planning commission
and at least two more hear-
ings in June and July with the
county commissioners.
"It's the community we
really need to reach out to, to
give us their thoughts and
concerns on what this thing
does," he said.

Orofino, whose family

international talent to the
amphitheater, such as Lu-
ciano Pavarotti and Andrea
Boccelli.
The outdoor plaza sur-

and a Roman health spa. Spa
staff would be dressed in

fino said.
A water park moat on one

water slides and a wave pool.
Orofino envisions nine

Like other proposals, The
Colosseum would provide

What happens if Venice
doesn't buy into the idea of a

Plans are in the works to

A harbor management
plan is necessary for law
enforcement to deal with his-

derelict boats, abandoned
boats anchored without
proper lighting at night, and
boats that escape their moor-

fee schedule adopted April 24
by city council.
The average residential
permit will increase from $64
to $143, city staff estimated.
New fees are the result of
state legislation that "made it
necessary to modify the (per-
mit fees) budget category ...
from 'general fund' to 'special
revenue fund'," according to
Hans Behrens, building and
code enforcement director.
"This will basically man-
date 'that the department
must generate 100 percent of


the budget requirements via
application of reasonable and
yet fair building permit fees,"
he said.
Council member John Sim-
monds was the only member
to vote against the permit fee
hikes, but it wasn't because he
opposed the increased fees.
"When I first look at the
(new permit fees), I said this
is outrageous. Then I found
out we (charge) so much
lower than other areas. (It
may be) we have to move in
the direction proposed. Are
the fees reasonable? They
probably are.
"What I object to is getting


things on Friday, with no
work session," and having to
vote on it by Tuesday with lit-
tle time to study or research
such significant issues, Sim-
monds said.
"It bothers me we operate
that way."
Pier review
In response to resident Dick
Padgett's comments Tuesday
about vandalism and public
drinking at the city pier, City
Manager Marty Black said
staff were studying the issue
and would make a recom-
mendation in four to six
weeks ori whether to regulate


pier hours.
The city doesn't have the
staff or the resources to patrol
the pier all night, he said.
Black would like to see if
there's interest in a group of
volunteers like the' Intra-
coastal park patrol willing to
take on the task.
"If we don't have a group
willing to self-patrol, it could
take us down a course to close
the pier at night," Black said.
Other news
On final reading, council
passed an ordinance extend-
ing the city's participation in
Sarasota County's emergency


medical services municipal
service taxing unit. It's the
third annual approval of a 20-
year agreement that allows
the county to provide ambu-
latory services to the city of
Venice.
Architect Gregory Hall of
Jackson+Hall Architects gave
an update on plans to reno-
vate the historic Lord House
back to its original state. No
city funds are anticipated for
the renovation, which could
run up to $500,000. Council
authorized the Historic Pres-
ervation Board to seek
matching state grants. The
board has raised $80,000 for


the cause.
Council recognized police
officer Robert E. Shaw for
retiring after 21 years of ser-

Lower speed limit a partial answer at best


W e want to congratulate the Sara-
sota County commissioners for
delaying their decision on lower-
ing the speed limit on North River Road.
They are being pressured to cut the speed
limit from 55 miles an hour to 45 mph. And
that might help, if it were tightly enforced.
(Then again, a stronger law enforcement
presence would be good regardless of the
speed limit.)
If there is another deadly crash on that
stretch of county highway, the pressure onr
the commissioners will be even greater.
That is because people have been trained to
believe all highway problems are caused by
speeding. That's not the case, especially not
on roads like River Road.
Studies by qualified highway engineers
show that crashes are largely caused by real-


ly bad drivers making inappropriate moves
on poorly designed roads.
We once used the phrase: "There are no
bad drivers in Boston, just good drivers and
dead drivers."
That seems to apply in Florida in spades.
Although some of our friends object to
this analogy, the fact is, in Florida we kill
more children, wonfen and men on our
highways every 12 months than all the U.S.
soldiers that have died in four years of war
in Iraq.
Florida has roughly 6 percent of the
nation's population. So why do we produce
between 8 and 9 percent of all the highway
deaths in the United States?
We have a much higher percentage of
deaths than states that have ice and snow
covering their roads several months of the


year.
Anyone who drives River Road regularly
knows that it has heavy traffic. Compound-
ing the issue of traffic volume are an older,
somewhat narrow road surface, poor mark-
ings on the pavement and a high level of dif-
ficulty in pulling out into traffic.
Can we expect county highway officials
to blame their roadway design and mark-
ings for crashes? Probably not.
That would be about the same as asking
Firestone to announce, without prompting,
that it was producing and selling inferior,
unsafe tires a few years back.
Or it would be like expecting manufac-
turers of sport utility vehicles to accept
responsibility for the injuries and deaths
caused by the frequent SUV rollovers.
If the county commissioners really want-


ed to reduce deaths and serious injuries in
Sarasota County, they would instruct their
engineers to send qualified people to every
crash site and to stay there until they could
determine the actual cause.
Then changes could be made.
Right now we depend on sheriffs, dep-,
uties to report what happened. They -do
their very best. But until police officersare-
required to go to college, to earn four-year
degrees in traffic engineering, the best anr
officer can do is make an educated guess.
. Qualified engineers should be investigat-
ing crashes, at least in locations that seem to
have a higher incidence of them.
There's a reason certain intersections and
stretches of road become known as hazards,
and it isn't because people decided to make
them famous by dying there.


Happy birthday, Manatee

Community College


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


Manatee Community Col-
lege is celebrating its 50th
year in existence.
It started as Manatee Jun-
ior College in Bradenton with
a small enrojment, only to
expand to its current three
campuses. The second full
service campus is in Venice -
technically, in North Port with
a Venice post office address;
go figure. The third campus is
the Center for Innovation and
Technology at Lakewood
Ranch.
MCC's three campuses
have more than 8,000 stu-'
dents seeking two-year de-
grees and certifications in a
wide variety of accreditation
programs that makes it a fab-
ulous resource.
MCC is among the top 100
associate-degree programs in
the country.
The Venice campus has
had its ups and downs since
its start 30 years ago with its
first full Venice campus locat-
ed at the Brickyard. Sens. Bob
Johnson and Warren Hen-
derson were instrumental in
the development of this cam-
pus and the building of the
current campus. ...
Our former editor Sam
Dillon pushed hard with Sen.
Johnson to make the Brick-
yard site a reality.
In addition to a lot of law-
makers, some local people
have made a huge impact on
this development, as did
Steve Korcheck, the longtime
president of the school.
Jack Meyerhoft Tom and
Annette Dignam, Steve
Harner, Bob Moore and Steve
Boone are among the many
locals who have watched the
Venice campus grow to be-
come a huge asset.
In the last five years under
the leadership of MCC Pres-
ident Sarah Pappas, Venice
has seen rapid growth and the
addition of a partnership with
the University of South Flor-
ida to provide a four-year
degree.
The south campus has al-
ways been known as one
focused on computer and
technology, but it has many
other great programs, includ-
ing the rather new nursing
program. This got a huge
boost when the money that
remained from the Venice
Hospital Foundation was
transferred and matched by
the state to establish endow-
ed teaching positions.
This has boosted this pro-


gram from a struggling one to
one as big as the north cam-
pus program, putting out 30-
50 nurses a year. Recently
MCC hired a wonderful new
CEO, Ann Roggero, to help
guide it into the future.
MCC is celebrating its sto-
ried history with open houses
and parties of all kinds. The
Venice open house showed
off a gorgeous campus. Mil-
lions have been spent in the
last few years on landscaping,
many beautiful fountains and
other things to give the other-
wise quite sterile campus
some character.
Congrats to all of those
who have helped make MCC
a wonderful asset for our
area.


By's Crack: I was so dis-
couraged the other night
when I came out of my
memory improvement
class and I couldn't re-
member where I parked
my car.


It was 44 years ago this
weekendthat city council ap-
proved the hyperbolic para-
baloid as a cover at Venice
Beach.

The Venice Train Depot
celebrated its 80th birthday
last week.
One of the things that I got
updated on is that there still is
a plan to get a Pullman car
from the Ringling Circus. The
area next to the caboose has
been s6t up for this.
The car will depict the lives
of travel of the famous per-
formers, a single performer
and a normal couple. It
sounds like a great addition to
this facility, which is growing
with rich circus and railroad
history.

Today's Ism: I don't ap-
prove of political jokes; I've
seen too many of them get
elected.

Those wanting to get some
good exercise should join the

All Faith's Food Bank had a
successful Casino Night at the
Venice Community Center,
raising more than $22,000.
Center workers and volun-
teers alike had to rush to have
it cleaned up and be out by
midnight, when the lights go
out. One thing there isn't, is
local control. The local staff
cannot turn the lights back on
part of the "improve-
ments" in the new center.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Going 'postal' was quite pleasant


Editor:
One of my pastimes is to complain. I do a good deal more of
it than I should.
Over the years people have complained about a lack of fast,
friendly service at our local post office in downtown Venice.
With this in mind, I went to the Venice post office to mail my
tax return and first quarterly estimate. There were nine people
in line ahead of me as I went through the door. I slid my stuff
along on the wooden shelf with the others.
It took me just 13 minutes to finish (not bad for an old guy
who really doesn't have a lot to do anyway.) And do you know
what else? As I waited my turn, I noticed that the postal clerks
were smiling and sometimes joking with their customers -
this at 3:30 in the afternoon, when they had already put in a
long day and must have begun to think about going home for
some relaxation.
Somehow we should let them know that there are those who
really do appreciate their good service and their pleasant atti-
tude.

Lots of ways
to cut litter
Editor:
I have a complaint regard-
ing the dumping along the
roadways of various trash.
Being from Michigan, we
once had the same problem.
We started the bottle-and-can
law and that stopped most'of
it. We still have some, but
nothing compared with Flord
ida.
You rflust realize the gem
that you have here and reme-
dy the situation. We also have
a $500 litter law. We also have
an Adopt-A-Highway pro-
gram. There should be no
problem taking the bagged
trash to a designated area for
pick-up.
Inmates should do some of
the work, to help defray their
cost of upkeep and care while
incarcerated.

The issue is, what do we want?


ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


The Hippocratic Oath, a
traditional statement to guide
physicians that has Greek and
Latin roots, includes an ethi-
cal injunction stated in mod-
em terms as, 'Above all, do no
harm."
Hopefully, Venice City
Council members will follow
that direction as they wrestle
with a complex and difficult
process of deciding how, and
how much, to develop the air-
port.
If you are reading this over
breakfast, there is time to go
down to city hall for a 9 a.m.-4
p.m. workshop that will allow
public comment after up to
six developers will discuss
their proposals and respond
to council's questions. Fur-
ther planning will follow.
Financial need?
Last .week I heard IMarty
Dover speak at a citizens'
group meeting held at the
chamber of commerce. Dover
said, essentially, that airport
development was required
because the Federal Aviation
Administration "demands"
the airport raise funds.
I have heard this rationale
in similar form before. The
implication is that the airport
must be developed to survive
(and grow, which is the un-
derlying issue.)
While it is true that the air-
port property must support
its operations and it does,
that now there is no imper-
adive for growth from the FAA"
I Faci: The airpl osin?, in
hnancial difficulty, A review-tf
the city's Balance Sheet and
-statement of. Revenues and
Expenses shows that the air-
port's revenues have exceed-
ed expenses in each year from
2003-2006. Operating income
figures for these years after ek-
penses were (rounded):
$386,000, $1,038,000, $144,000
and $268,000. According to Jeff
Snyder, city finance director,
the average surplus, after taking
out transfers, was between
$175,000 and $200,000 a year.
The airport has a reserve fund
of just more than $2.5 million.
Net assets have grown from
S6 million in 2003 to $9.6 mil-
lion in 2006.
The city. is currently in-


creasing rents ion airport
properties for which it has
been undercharging aviation
and other users. Balances will
show increases in 2007 with-
out any new development.
What I have heard from
City Manager Marty Black
and others is that they want
the airport to grow. They hope
to strengthen a runway to
handle larger planes; build a
control tower, with full or lim-
ited capability to direct traffic;
encourage the National
Guard to have an operation
here (what about the possibil-
ity of future noisy jets?); and
"be a staging area for emer-
gency operations."
With international airports
in Sarasota, Fort Myers and
Tampa, why is this necessary?
Will this make Venice more
liveable, or or less? Note that
very few citizens of Venice use
the airport. This column
recently reported only 20-25
Venice citizens rent hangars.
City council should consider
the harm for the other 20,000
people who live here.
Impact
A review of the plans sub-
mitted to the city shows why
none can be accepted.
They all lack sufficient de-
tail: some financial, some the
specific amount of land need-
ed, some the lease terms.
They vary greatly in their po-
tential negative impact on the
city.
The decision by the city to
try to select a developer to
work with and have a "char-
rette," or planning process,
seems a desirable alternative,
although perhaps a team of
several developers with differ-
ent strengths might be prefer-
able.
It is to be hoped the city
will use a sophisticated urban
designer, or several, to oper-
ate this charrette.

airport plan, does not have

Cavu Cay Corporation
wants to lease all available
land and plans to work with
the Venice Golf Association to
take over its lease.
The proposal discusses a
"coastal resort" between the
"pristine white sand beaches"
and the Intracoastal Water-
way. It proposes "The Open


Skies Resort," a luxury RV
park and campground direct-
ly across Harbor Drive from
Tramnonto Vista Park. It also
proposes two hotels: one
overlooking a proposed mari-
na and yacht club on the ICW
and one overlooking "The
Lagoon" on Red Lake, a cur-
rently pristine area south of
the existing golf course.
It proposes a road running
from Business 41 around the
property to handle some traf-
fic, but shows an opening
onto Harbor Drive for the RV
park, "Lagoon" hotel and the
golf course. It remarks on the
"short walk" to the beach.
The "Legacy Sky, Marina
and Golf Resort" would focus
on expanding the number of
"medium-sized executive jet
and turbine" users, anticipat-
ing housing 70 additional air-
craft of this type.
It would build a 250-room
hotel and a new nine-hole ex-
ecutive golf course (off Har-
bor Drive at Tramonto Park),
and also renovate the current
course after purchasing the
lease from the VGA.

of these slips would handle

that size on bridge raising is

Commercial and business
development of the airport
property seems desirable on
the east side of the airport
and Business 41.
Massive hotels intruding
on South Harbor Drive and
the beaches, affecting the
golfers (even with suggestions
of subsidies, the ultimate
prices for a round at Lake
Venice are not detailed), and
on our "pristine" beachfront
community raise more ques-
tions of harm than good.
A hotel in the right location
has pluses. Commercial and
business operations are a bet-
ter option and will create bet-
ter-paying jobs.
The marina is an ecologi-
cal nightmare and should be
considered for the area north
of the railway station, where
property is reportedly for sale.

Ridiculous. I'm calling
about the reason problems
with the Sandcastle, our
beloved hot dog stand at the
jetty. It seems to me that all
the permits were issued to
begin with or it wouldn't be
there. And also, they put rocks
behind the Sandcastle last
year. They seemed to have no
problem with being able to
get to it. This does not seem
fair in any way, shape or form.
If it's unfair and it shouldn't be
there, what about the other
side of the jetty? That one
comes up to the water's edge
also. This is ridiculous and it
needs to be stopped.

Need a solution. I'nicalling
about overflow parking. No
business should be allowed to
use a public area such as the
South Jetty as an overflow
parking lot. I don't want to
mention the business be-
cause it's such a highly re-
spected business here in Ven-
ice. But, because they encour-
age their patrons to use the
South Jetty parking lot, they
are not allowing the visitors
and the residents of Venice to
have the enjoyment of the
South Jetty. Something needs
to be done. Please help us to
return our South Jetty to a
place that you can go and sit
and enjoy the wonderful
beach and waters around our
beautiful city. Let's find other
solutions for these businesses
and their parking problem.

North Port voting to



undo planning pact


Could this be the year




for red-light cameras?


BY ANNE KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

North Port Commission
Vice Chair Fred Tower III
spoke for all city commission-
ers Monday when he said
opting out of the joint plan-
ning agreement with Sarasota
County was the way to go.
"We were pushed into this
thing," he said, "and anytime
you're pushed, you don't get
what you want, and we didn't
get a planning agreement,
and we didn't get an agree-
ment of cooperation."
The rest of the commis-
sion concurred unanimously,
approving a motion to sched-
ule a second reading of an
ordinance to discontinue the
JPA for May 9 the first step
in breaking with the agree-
ment altogether.
The commission's vote
came as the result of a unani-
mous vote last week to invoke
an opt-out clause in the JPA
- an agreement intended to
control growth by limiting the
city's annexation abilities.

No reason
The Sarasota County Com-
mission sent a letter to North
Port Commission Chair Bar-
bara Gross asking for a joint
meeting on May 7, two days
before the city's May 9 meeting.
Commissioners weren't
averse to meeting, but are still
a bit gun-shy.
"We should not get rushed
into this again," Tower said.
"We have seen since that time
(when the JPA was signed and
a charter referendum passed)
that there has been no effort
on the part of the county to
cooperate with us. I see no
reason for us to meet with
them on May 7."
Commissioner Vanessa
Carusone said the city and
county now have an opportu-
nity to fix what's broken.
"I just think we need to


look at some of it a little more
carefully." she said. "If we
have a meeting, and if this
was a meeting to mend
fences and come to a joint
conclusion, then I'm all for it."
Commissioner Jim Blucher
said the city would be foolish
if it didn't take the opportuni-
ty to try to negotiate a new
agreement.
"The referendum is han-
dling annexation, it's very
clear, but what it does not
handle is the planning,"
Blucher said. "We have an
opportunity now to address
those without pressure from
dates or a referendum hang-
ing over our heads. We put a
planning tool together that
will work for the benefit of


WHAT IS A JPA?
The joint planning agree-
ment signed by both the city
and Sarasota County commis-
sions Jan. 24 governs how the
city and county are to address
annexation and future growth
planning.
The JPA states the city will
not seek to annex any more
land from the county for at
least 25 years. Voluntary
annexations are exempt from
this rule, but the county must
be kept informed.
Last month, Sarasota
County voters approved an
amendment to the county
charter giving the county
more leverage in planning.
Some fear it could allow the
county to override the JPA,
giving city commissioners
concerns about city-county
relations.
North Port city commis-
sioners became doubly con-
cerned when the county
began telling them about
development plans that had
not been revealed during
negotiations that led to sign-
ing the JPA. ;


all."

Needed: a true JPA
Citizens who spoke had
mixed emotions.
"The present agreement
has far too many questions
that need to be answered,"
said Paul Morgan, speaking
on behalf of the North Port
Contractor's Association. "I'm
positive that given the proper
time and meaningful dia-
logue, the city and county can
come to an agreement."
Joanna Stegenga, owner of
the Myakka River Oyster Bar
along U.S. 41 which is in
unincorporated Sarasota
County said growth is
inevitable and needs to be
handled properly.
"I understand everyone is
wanting to protect this com-
munity, but growth is going to
come," she said. "I think it's
much more important for the
good of the local businesses
that make up our tax base,
that it would be nice if every-
one could work together. I
don't know what a solution is.
I know there's a lot of growth
that seems to some unneces-
sary, but as long as we pay
attention to it, it will be to the
benefit of the community."
Gross said she has wanted
a JPA with the county as long
as she's been a commissioner.
"This isn't just a JPA, it's an
annexation agreement," she
said of the document signed
on Jan. 24. "Cooperation
means two people working
together, not one person, and
something one-sided is not
cooperation. If we opt out of
this, we can have a true JPA
and address the jurisdictional
impacts of development."
Commissioners will hold a
special meeting at 1:30 p.m.
Wednesday, May 9, to hear
the second reading of the
ordinance.

A bill creating a legal
framework for Florida local
governments to use traffic-
light cameras cleared a House
council unanimously Friday.
Red-light cameras have
been a cause for Rep. Ron
Reagan, R-Bradenton, for sev-
eral years. But enough con-
servative legislators have
balked at the idea of automat-
ed traffic enforcement to
stymie Reagan's prior efforts.
Based on the favorable
response he got before the,
House Economic Expansion
& Infrastructure Council, this
may finally be the year. There
wasn't a single speaker in
opposition.
Reagan took the podium
prepared to squelch the prin-
cipal argument usually made
against red-light cameras.
"Pure and simple, this is
about public safety; when
you're in your vehicle on a
public highway there is no
expectation of privacy,"
Reagan said.
He said that security cam-
eras are now everywhere -
people don't object to being
photographed while using
automated teller machines.

Revenue split
House Bill 1247 is titled
."Uniform Traffic Control," or
the "Mark Wandall Traffic
Safety Act," after a resident of
Reagan's district who lost his
life three years ago in an acci-
dent caused by a red-light
runner.
It would allow local gov-
ernments to set up red-light
cameras at intersections of
their choice. These units cost
about $50,000 each, so the
expense would limit cameras
to only the busiest or most
hazardous intersections, at
least initially.


Motorists caught on cam- A staff analysis of Reagan's
era running a red light could bill addresses the fact that
be fined $125. However, this there are costs associated
would be considered a "civil with the cameras but pro-
penalty," Reagan said. No mo- vides few specifics on what
ving violation points would be localities would need to pay a
assessed against driver's licens- contractor.
es. In place


"Driving is a public
act. It's a privilege -
people have to get a
license to do it.
Frankly, I find no pri-
vacy right here."
Rep. Keith
Fitzgerald, D-Sarasota






This would also mean that
violators who paid the fine
wouldn't suffer any conse-
quences on their auto insur-
ance premiums. They would
have the option of contesting
the 'ticket in court, but if
found guilty would be consid-
ered to have waived the civil
penalty and could be charged
court costs on top of the fine.
The bill specifies that $65
of every $125 ticket go to the
state Department of Health,
to be placed in a trust fund for
hospital trauma centers.
Local governments would get
a minimum of $30. The
remaining $30 would be
divided by a complicated for-
mula, with about a fourth
going into the state's general
revenue fund.
Because of the expense of
technology, the practice in
other states has been for local
governments to hire private
contractors to both install the
red light cameras and man-
age day-to-day operations of
the program.


Currently, the only Florida
municipality using red-light
cameras is Gulf Breeze, which
installed a single camera at a
busy intersection near its
middle school in 2005. The
fine is $100 and has proven
such a deterrent that viola-
tions dropped from 150 a
month to fewer than 10.
Several local governments
- including Sarasota and
Manatee counties have
run test programs with red-
light cameras, testing the
technology but not actually
collecting fines.
Southwest Florida repre-
sentatives joining in the
unanimous vote were Mike
Davis, R-Naples; Doug Hol-
der, R-Sarasota; Keith Fitz-
gerald, D-Sarasota; and Gary
Aubuchon, R-Cape Coral,,
whose district includes both
the Lee and Charlotte county
portions of Boca Grande.
"Driving is a public act. It's
a privilege people have to
get a license to do it. Frankly, I
find no privacy right here,"
Fitzgerald said.
An identical Senate bill is
being sponsored by Sen. Mike
Bennett, R-Bradenton, whose
district includes part of
Charlotte County.

mortgage needs.


The savvy move is to refinance from an adjustable
to a fixed mortgage. You can secure a fixed rate at
a considerable lower rate than your rising ARM rate.
People who switch to a fixed mortgage can actually
see their monthly payments go down. But, even if
your payments go up in the short term, a fixed rate
is protection against ever-rising adjustable rates. If
the fixed rate continues to fall, we will refinance you


at no cost to you.
Bottom line? Now is the time to ditch


that ARM.

Lady Indians advance in Regionals


BY DEBBIE KIEWIET
SPORTS EDITOR


After going scoreless for
three innings, Venice's Chel-
sea Zgrabik hit a two-run sin-
gle in the bottom of the fourth
to give the Lady Indians a 2-0
win over Northeast (St.
Petersburg) in Tuesday night's
Class 5A Regional Softball
quarterfinal.
The game proved a repeat
of history as Venice defeated
Northeast last year in the
Regional opener with an
identical score.
"Last year we scored in the
bottom of the fifth and held
them," said Indian coach
Larry Sandburg.
In Friday night's Regional
semifinal at 7 p.m., Venice will
. play the winner of tonight's
matchup between East Lake
(Tarpon Springs) who are 18-
7 and Chamberlain (Tampa),
25-2.
Hopefully, history will not
repeat itself again. Last year
the Lady Indians lost in the
Regional semifinal to
Chamberlain, which went on
to State.
The Regional final is
Tuesday, May 1.
Another shot
Coach Sandburg said he'd
like another chance at Cham-
berlain this year. "But whoev-
er shows up we'll play," he
said. "We'll be ready for
them."
The Lady Indians (21-3)
are playing host to the Re-
gional Tournament after
defeating Lakewood Ranch 9-
6 for the District title Friday
night.
The Northeast Vikings had
a 16-'4 record coming into
Tuesday night's quarterfinal.
Venice's sophomore pitch-
er Stephanie Sullivan started
out the night with a strikeout


on the Vikings' Brittany
Dubois. Northeast pitcher
Stephanie Dennis hit an
infield single and managed to
reach second, but the next
two Viking batters were outs.
Northeast put two on in
the second with a walk and a
base hit, but Sullivan struck
out the next batter up to end
that inning.
The Vikings had another
hit in the third, but the Venice
pitcher came through again
with two strikeouts.
The Lady Indians didn't get
any runners on until the
fourth inning when Nikki
Taylor walked, Brittany Hip-
ple had a base hit and
Maureen Sandidge an infield
single to fill up the bases.
Zgrabik's two-run single
brought in Taylor and Hipple
for the only runs of the night.
Sullivan got the win with
eight strikeouts, giving up
four hits and two walks.
Northeast pitcher Dani Sei-
bert struck out three, walked
one and gave up five hits.
Toughin' it
"At this stage," Coach
Sandburg said, "every game is
going to be tough. Northeast
had a good pitcher, the same
one they had last year.
Stephanie pitched a great
game for us, as she always
does, and we had some time-
ly hitting. Chelsea's hit in the
fourth inning was awesome."

Venice but only got as far as
second.
The second inning was
three up and three down for
Southeast. The Indians got
the first run of the game with
Greg Bruni running for Pete
Hernandez who singled,
reached second on a foul ball,
and came home on an over-
throw at first base.
Southeast left two runners
on in the third. McClean and
Ryan Anderson singled for
the Indians. Jordan Lucas
walked to load the bases, but
the Seminoles ended Venice's
hopes in the third with a dou-
ble play at first on Jordan
Wean and McClean at home
plate.
No. 4 was the big inning for
Southeast with three runs on
five hits. Two Seminole run-
ners reached paydirt on a fly
to right field. Venice allowed
the third run with a mishan-
dled ball. Southeast had two
more runners in position, but
Struble got a timely strikeout.
The fourth inning was unpro-
ductive for Venice, leaving
Southeast with a 3-1 lead at
the start of the fifth.
Coming in in the fifth,
senior Indians pitcher Marty
Kenealy struck out two and
helped swing the momentum
in Venice's favor. Ricky Ster-
anko led off the hitting for the
Indians in the fifth with a sin-,
gle, followed up by bunts by
both Struble and McClean to
load up the bases.' Ryan
Anderson sent one to the
rightfield fence to bring them
in and put Venice up 4-3.
Wean got Anderson home
with a double to leftfield.
Venice junior Jason Kauf-
man went to the mound in
the sixth, after a Kenealy
strikeout and walk, to finish
out the inning, striking out
two. The Indians got three
more runs in the bottom of


the sixth with a Struble bunt
sending Chris Atamanchuk in
and a sacrifice fly by An-
derson that brought Struble
and Steranko home.
Wean caught a sky ball for
the first Seminole out of the
final inning, and the next
was handled in centerfield.
Southeast got to first on balls,
but Anderson ended the
game with a fall-away catch
in rightfield.

Hershal Wells did it again.
For three straight years,
Wells has led the Rugs As Art
senior softball team to victory
in the winter season. He had


several teams in the nine-
team league vying for his spot,
but he defended the title vigor-
ously, as one by one the pre-
tenders faded from the scene.
Wells does not have the
luxury of keeping the same
players because, except for

Making dreams come true


BY BRENDA MERTZ
SPECIAL TO THE GONDOLIERSUN


This year as usual, three
buses with 150 people head-
ed for the Sony Ericsson Open
Tennis Tournament in Key
Biscayne. What wasn't usual
was an 83-year-old Venice
resident named Ed Hussey.
When he saw the poster at
Bird Bay where he lives, Ed
called and then made a spe-
cial trip to deliver his money
so he wouldn't miss out.
Well, .the morning of de-
parture, all I wished for was to
see Ed Hussey show up and
hop on the bus. Fifteen min-
utes before departure, I called
him. He said he had already
unpacked his bag because he
thought the bus was leaving
at 4 a.m. When the buses
weren't there, he went home.
We were all sad that Ed
might not get back to the bus
in time, so I told him to grab
his clothes and someone
would pick him up near the
interstate at a gas station. He
said, "Okay, I am on my way."
It was just plain fate that
one of the ladies and her two
kids were going to follow us in
their car because she was
pregnant and didn't want to
ride on the bus. She said, "Just
tell me where to pick up Ed."
,, No one wanted to leave Ed,


At the rest stop they caught
up with us. Ed hopped on the
bus with his suitcase, a big
smile and said, "This is a
dream come true."
After two days of great ten-
nis, on the way home Ed told
me the last time he saw a big
tennis match us 40 years ago
at Forest Hills. He said his
favorite player was Pete Sam-
press and, "boy, was Pete a
tiger at the net."
Ed took up tennis at 45 and
hopes to play until he is 90.
He wants to learn more
new things and has plenty of
time. He volunteers for Hos-
pice and at Historic Spanish
Point.
Last year, Ed took off in his
car to Whidam Mountain in
upstate New York to learn
how to ski. "Big mistake," he
chuckled. "I should've known
not to take up a sport where
there is an ambulance at the
bottom of the mountain."
He never made it to the
bottom on his skiis but did
learn, with practice, how to
fall properly and not break
any bones.
Ed is back on the courts at
Bird Bay and can't wait to go
to the Ericsson in 2008.

tor of tennis for Mission Valley

"' V8 Parents
are encouraged to
S I supervise their children's
use of video games, overuse
of which can lead to hand and
thumb injuries. By exerting
constant stress on tendons, nerves,
and ligaments in their hands and
arms, children can experience long-
term problems such as tendonitis,
bursitis, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
These repetitive stress injuries lead to
symptoms including fatigue and loss of
strength, minor or acute aches and
pains, and burning and tingling. To
prevent these problems from occurring,
children are advised to keep their
wrists straight and not allow them to
bend downward when holding a game
controller. In any case, it is a good
idea to have your child's body
structure assessed by the
chiropractor.
P.S. Children should practice good
posture and avoid sitting in a
hunched-over position when playing
video games.

Road project is the 'Center' of attention


SUN PHOTO BY JEFF TAVARES,
jtavares@venicegondolier.com
Sarasota County commissioners and others cut a rib-
bon Tuesday to officially mark the completion of the
Center Road improvements. The $29.7 million project
widened the road, made improvements to the inter-
sections at Jacaranda Boulevard and at River Road
and added landscaped medians, bicycle lanes and
sidewalks. The work, which began in October 2005,
was along a 3.6-mile stretch of the road. Prince
Contracting Co. of Palmetto earned a bonus incentive
of more than $500,000 for completing the project
about three months ahead of schedule. Funding for.
the Center Road project was provided by the infra-
structure surtax (1-cent sales tax), gasoline tax, South
County road impact fees, regional roadway funds and
ad valorem taxes.

J ohnnie Fisher and his wife of 32
'.ears live on a small farm in rural
Alabama. Although that's a long .
wa' from here, when he noticed he
common symptoms of heart trouble
last February-chest pain, shortness
of breath, and dizziness-he came
straight to Venice Regional Medical
Center.
Having lived in Venice for 17 years
before relocating to Alabama, Mr.
Fisher had developed a relationship
. with cardiologist Barry Weckesser,
M.D., and decided to consult
directly with him. When he arrived
in Venice, Dr. \Veckesser ordered a
test that revealed Mr. Fisher needed
triple bypass surgery on the posterior
section of' his heart-onre of the
riskiest areas on which to operate. .
iFaced with the prospect of ofpen-h surgery, Mr. Fisher khew he wanted the
best, and Dr. Weckesser assured him r t Venice was the place to be. "In fact," says
Dr. Weckesser, "Venice is the best place 1I Florida to have heart surgery."
On March 5, 2007, Mr. Fisher pre-reistered at the hospital and met Dr. Jonathan
Fong, the cardiovascular surgeon who performed the procedure thi following day. The
operation was a complete success, and Mr. Fisher left the hospital three days later. As he
puts it, "they fixed my heart, and it's all mine-there aren't an) spare parts.
"You just don't get any better than Venice Regional Medical Center," continues Mr.
Fisher. His surgery was performed by some of Florida's most talented physicians, and
in addition, he describes the nurses as the "nicest, most caring people you could ever
meetr-I've never seen a hospital where dthe people actually cared about the patients they
were looking after." The nurses were atknrive to all his needs, but he says they never
interfered, and never woke him up or interrupted his rest when cheating on his status.
After Mr. Fisher was discharged, Venice Regional Medical Center arranged to have
home nursing care provided for him while he stayed with a relative in Sarasota to
recuperate. The home nurses checked on him daily for 10 days, monitoring his vitals
and ensuring he was recovering well. Before returning to Alabama, he met with Dr.
Fong agaii, who provided him with all the information and literature he needed about
his post-operative health and how to care for himself at home.
Mr. Fisher returned to Alabama on March 26th, just three weeks after his surgery.
Since then, he says he's been feeling fantastic, and is able to do all the things he loved
doing on his farm before his heart trouble-working on his tractor, spending time in his
woodshop and tool shed, and gardening with his wife. "I'm able to work without having
to rest every five minutes, and I'm getting stronger all the time," Mr. Fisher said.
Venice Regional Medical Center has been named one of Solucient's 100 Top Hospitals
in the nation for cardiovascular care, and performs the best in Sarasota Count)y for the
treatment of heart attack and heart failure according to the Center for Medicare &
Medicaid Services. Our gifted physicians, caring staff, and stringent safety measures
translate directly into real-life successes for our patients, both near and far, and after
hearing stories like Johnnie Fisher's it's easy to see why.

STROKE AWARENESS

AND PREVENTION

It's Mlay-a good time to do some
spring cleaning, to finish projects you've
been putting on the back burner, and
to think about your health. May is also
stroke awareness month, and according
to the National Stroke Association,
stroke is the 3rd leading cause of death
in the U.S. and the #1 cause of adult
disability. However, 80% of all strokes
are preventable.


What Is Stroke?
A stroke occurs when a blood clot or
broken blood vessel impedes the flow of
blood to the brain, causing cell damage.
The effects of stroke can be terribly
disabling and include loss of movement,
memory, and speech.



Some risk factors for stroke are beyond
your control, like gender, age, and race.
Men are more likely to have strokes
than women, especially if they're over
55, and African-Americans are twice as
likely to suffer strokes as whites. There
are many causes of stroke. These include
high blood pressure Ihypertension),
high cholesterol, atrial fibrillation (AF),
diabetes, and obesity. Tobacco use and
excessive alcohol consumption also
increase the risk of stroke.


Controlling Your Risk
Consider making healthy lifestyle
choices, like quilting smoking, curbing
alcohol intake, eating a balanced, low-
fat and low-sodium diet, and exercising
regularly-iust walking rwo or three
days a week is extremely beneficial, and
you'll be amazed how your health will
benefit. If you suffer from any of the
diseases mentioned above, make sure
to talk to your doctor about what you
can do to help prevent stroke. You can
also go to www.stroke.org For more
information and to fill out your stroke
risk scorecard.


Don't risk suffering a stroke when
there's so much you can do to prevent
it. Take this month to evaluate your
health, and most of all, to take good
care of yourself



To learn more or make an
appointment, call the Venice Regional
Medical Center physician referral line at
c941 483-"600.

COVER REPRODUCTION COURTESY OF DON BLAIR
Don Blair, a journalist during the height of the space era, is a Venice resident and wrote a book
about his adventures.




Blaring all...

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Mutual Radio's voice of the
space program, Don Blair,
splashed down in Venice 15
years ago.
During a broadcast career
spanning nearly 50 years,
Blair covered a lot of big sto-
ries but none in more depth
than NASAs Apollo recovery
program.
He knew he wanted to be a
broadcaster while still in the
United States Army.
"They made me an
instructor in biological war-
fare," he said. "That meant I
ran the projector."
Blair went right into radio
as soon as he was 'discharged
from the Army in 1955.
. Reasonably literate and


with Army experience as an
instructor in biological war-
fare, he used the ,G.I. Bill. to
pay for radio school.
"I never considered myself
hot college material," the
Venice resident said.
He was in school for six
months, writing news and
ads and learning to be a disc
jockey. He worked with peo-
ple already in radio.
"We looked at them as
though they were gods," Blair
said.
Landing a job in Hartford,
he was on his way to joining
those gods. For 10 years, he
did radio and TV doing news,
sports and weather. In 1963,
when President John E
Kennedywas assassinated, he
was on the air as a disc jockey
.was playing rock 'n' roll.
"We switched to ABC News
for the next three days," he said.
Gemini
In 1965, Blair joined the
Mutual Radio Network.


"I was working for Chuck
King, the best boss ever," Blair
said. "He could joke or he
could chew butt. He came to
me and said 'next month you
sail on the USS Wasp. You are
going to be one of the two
pool reporters of Gemini 9.' I
called Houston immediately,
and they sent me a case of
stuff to study. I still have those
books."-
Gemini 9 was launched on
June, 6, 1966, commanded by
Thomas E Stafford and pilot-
ed by Eugene A. Cernan. It
made 47 orbits before touch-
ing down after its 72-hour ,
mission to praTtice docking
and maneuvering.
The same year, the Mutual
Network provided the pool
reporter for Gemini 10 and
11. They sent Blair each time.


mission. Four reporters were
assigned: Rob Nesson for
NBC, Dallas Townsend Jr. for
CBS, Keith McBee for ABC
and Don Blair of Mutual. The
men from ABC, CBS and NBC
were on the flight deck of the
carrier USS Hornet. Blair was
on the 06 level.
"That's where the sema-
phore kid would stand," he
said. "I asked for that. It is the
Combat Information Center
(CIC). During the space mis-
sion, that is where all the
information came from. Dur-
ing the recovery, I had a
young lieutenant comman-
der handing me the latest
information from NASA, and
I'd turn it into my rolling com-,
mentary. I was the only radio
voice for the world. The oth-
ers were all TV"


BY DON BLAIR
SPECIAL TO THE VENICE GONDOLIER SUN

Edgar Mitchell, Ph.D., sat
in the audience at a packed
Van Wezel Performing Arts
Hall on Friday. April 13, for
the opening night festivities
of the Sarasota Film Fest-
ival. On the movie screen
was "In the Shadow of the
Moon," in which Mitchell
had a prominent role.
After the screening, Mit-
chell, who flew on Apollo 14
with astronauts Alan Shep-
ard (the legendary golf ball
hitter on the moon) and
Stuart Roosa, participated
in a question-and-answer
session.
Apollo 14 began its lunar
journey on Jan. 31, 1971.
Mitchell is a scientist by
training, and his presence
on that mission marked the
advent of a NASA policy
emphasizing the impor-
tance of having scientific
minds on the moon along
with some 6f the world's
best aviators.
He is soft-spoken, can-
did and direct in all his
responses to the media,
which followed and inter-
viewed him at the posh
opening-night gala at the
Ringling Museum, yours
truly included.
When I asked if this fine
film might renew our inter-
est and confidence in -the
space program at a time of
shuttle difficulties and set-
backs, he said, "Perhaps,"
but declined to be more
hopeful in light of what he
saw as "our leader's" failure
(NASA or government?) to
present the whole picture
to the American public. I
could agree with that as-
sessment.


In decades
of covering
space for
several net-
works out
of New York
City, I al-
ways la-

Blair NASAS'A s
, shortcom-
ings in fully presenting its
truly impressive accom-
plishments.
That shortfall continues
to this day.
Mitchell was obviously
pleased with the film we
had all just seen and proud
of his participation in it.
When I mentioned the
shuttle's "bad luck with
weather, et al." he respond-
ed,"Bad luck and bad man-
agement."
Come on Ed, tell us what
you really mean.
In the film, and now in
person, I found Mitchell
and his comrades in space
to be ever candid and
straightforward with the
press, the microphone and
the cameras.
As our interview drew to a
close and other reportershov-
ered nearby I asked Mitchell if
he thought China might beat
us to the moon a first for
Beijing but a return visit for us.
"Absolutely," he said,
"they are up and ready."
The talent is there as
well as a total commitment,
and the Chinese have no
ongoing program and its
attendant expenses holding
them back.
And you thought space
was crowded before?
Stay tuned.
There's a brand new
player waiting in the wings,
and it is not Russian.

On Jan. 27, 1967, Edward
White, Virgil (Gus) Grissom,
and Roger Chaffee died in a
fire on the launch pad during
a preflight test. The next five
missions were unmanned.

"If I get another mission, I
want Apollo 11," Blair told his
boss.
That was the first moon


mission, which returned to
EaL th on Aug. 7, 1971.
In 1981, as an NBC anchor
in New York, he was involved
in another big news story,
scooping the world with news
of the recovery of the
American hostages who were
held in Iran for 440 days.
"An incredible bulletin ...
news flash from London ... we
beat everybody by hours,
including NBC Nightly News,

And now ... The News from Ecineville


BY TED RANK
STAFF ESCRITOR


Hang on to your sanity, ladies and
gentlemen. It's time for News from
Ecineville.
If you've been reading the news,
you know the city of Ecineville is
under threat of budget cuts as a
result of funding cuts being pro-
posed by the state.
Our city is fortunate to have a fab-
ulous and brilliant city manager,
Martha "Colors" Jesket.
As in most situations, Jesket has
taken this problem by the fins and is
offering solutions.
She started with the first steps
necessary whenever there is belt-
tightening. She announced a hiring


freeze; said no pay increases will be
granted for at least one year; and
employees will be required to pay
higher portions of their medical
insurance.
But then Jesket got creative, an-
nouncing a new program.
The "Think Outside the Box, Any-
thing is Possible" program will begin
next Wednesday.
"We are going to generate income
in ways cities have never thought of
before," said Jesket.
The first program. is in coope-
ration 'with the Ecineville Police
Department. The program is known
as "Give your Friend or Neighbor a
Ticket."
For $250 you will get to dress up as
a police officer and follow friends or


neighbors until they commit a traffic
violation. Then, after EPD pulls their
vehicle over, you get to go to their car
and write them a ticket. Want to carry
a gun? Only $75 extra. City officials
estimate this could generate
$200,000 to $400,000 annually.
The Ecineville Community Center
will be used on evenings when no
events are scheduled as a youth hos-
tel and homeless shelter, where one
can get a cot for only $6 a night or
$127.43 per night during season.
During the public comment por-
tion of any city meeting you may
now speak for longer than five min-
utes. Cost: $15 per minute.
Spray paint the Ecineville water
tower. Personal messages are only
$150 per word per day. Business


advertisements, $375 per word per
-day. Add a drawing, painting or logo
for just $750 per day.
Rent Ecineville Beach for private
clothing-optional parties. Full day:
$6,000. Half day: $3,500.
Have the mayor, city council
members and city manager attend
your nude beach party- priceless.
More on this terrific program in
my next report.
Well, this is Ted "I'm a reporter, I'm
a reporter" Rank reporting. I'll see
you next issue with more news from
Ecineville.
Until then, remember, it's all good
here in Ecineville.

him that the best bureau chief
in the business was telling us
it was a done deal and that I
was going in to the studio and
talking up the bulletin ... and
if Fred was wrong ... we
would both be fired."
No one was fired.
"That was one of the finest
moments in a decade of great
moments," Blair said.
Odd jobs
In addition to his time in
the limelight covering some
of the biggest stories of the
century, Blair also did a lot of
voice-over work for major
companies such as IBM, GTE,
Xerox, Union Carbide and


others.
Blair's final network news-
cast was in 1989.
He retired to Venice three
years later.
In retirement, Blair be-
came a,regular on the lecture
circuit, talking to various
groups about his experiences
with NASA.
'"After doing all those lec-
tures, I realized it might be
time to put those anecdotes
on paper," Blair said.
"Because I am not very
directed like a lot of writers, it
took me two years. But then,
when the USS Hornet was
making plans for a 35th
anniversary celebration -and

The ship was decommis-
sioned on June 26, 1970; put
into mothballs for two
decades; sold for scrap in
1993; and then saved to be
turned into a museum at
Alameda, Calif., effective May
26, 1998.
"We sold hundreds of
books on that ship," Blair
said.
The author
Blair's book, "Splash-
down, NASA and the Navy,"
includes many splashdown.

Blair's personal collection,
plus a wealth of informa-

tion about 16 different
recovery carriers "carrying
out 31 recovery missions
with on-the-spot aid of
-four different destroyers
when designated splash-
down spots were overshot
and could not be reached
by the carriers in a -safe
time frame."
The carefully researched
book is a sort of Bible for
anyone interested in those
early days of the United
States space program and
for any fan of the U.S. Navy,
which Blair refers to in the
book as "an incredible
Navy."

Blair remains on the lecture

He will be lecturing on a

flies," the Venice resident said,

When you gotta


11' ul fuf4,ae grt'- girl tQA


you gotta go


JOE GIORGIANNI
HUMOR COLUMNIST


you gotta go, you just simply
have to go. Now I'm not refer-
ring to taking a trip, other
thah maybe to the nearest
and most convenient bath-
room facility.
the species, and having
to qualify me for a gold card
on Depends, early bird spe-
cials and preferred parking at
the Senior Friendship Cen-
ters, I can tell you that when
you gotta go, you had better
be close to a facility that can
accommodate you and your
urogenous requirements. To
not be close to a facility when
nature yanks your chain is to
challenge the law that can
land your butt in jail for inde-
cent exposure by the side of a
car. Take it from someone
who has been there.-
In times past, whenever a
trip was planned, I would fig-
ure out how many miles away
my destination was and how
long it would take me to get
there. I admit, my GPS system


has made that a whole lot eas-
ier. These days, however, I for-
get the miles and the driving
time. Rather, I determine how
many rest stops there are
between where I'm at and,
where I'm going. I can tell you
the exact number of rest
areas, what it looks like,
including the interior design,
number of stalls, and the
caretaker of every potty along
the Interstate system in four
states. I have no idea how
many miles it is between
them, but I can tell you, with-
out any margin of error, how
much liquid I can consume
before the next rest area is
located that has a toilet facili-
ty.
Recently, there was a case
involving an air traffic con-
troller who, irrespective of
being the only air traffic con-
troller on duty, which, by the
way, was in defiance of
Federal Aviation Authority
rules, had to make a trip to the
potty before his scheduled
and allowed time to take a
break. No matter the number
of airplanes that were on his
radar screen. It didn't matter
that there were multiple air-
planes lining the tarmac
awaiting instructions for take-
off. This guy had his chain
yanked by nature, which only
makes my point even more
valid. When you gotta go, you
had better find .the nearest,
place to satisfy the problem,
or be prepared and content to
wear wet knickers for the rest
of the day.
There are times when a
plane is late, or even canceled

for reasons beyond anyone's
control. Snow and ice have
been known to make planes
late. Floods, crashes, drunk.
pilots, even auto accidents,
including flat tires can make
either the plane or the pas-
senger late for departure or
arrival. But to miss a plane
because the guy who literally
controls the aircraft you await
had to go to the john, would
be enough to clog an artery. It
would be funny, however, to
see an airport arrival/depar-
ture monitor display that your
plane would be late or can-
celed because some guy had
to use the bathroom.
Today, however, there are
medications -to help with this
little problem. In fact; there
are medications for just about
every problem imaginable. I
know this because I have tried
most of them. The one de-
signed to help TB (tiny blad-
der) however, carried patient
directions that read some-
thing like this: "Take one or
two tablets with 12 ounces of
water prior to travel." Now the
first time I tried this, I didn't
make it to the end of my dri-
veway before the urge to
erupt consumed my entire
body. Quickly, I leapt from the
car, barely making it to the
house to correct the situation.
I think the next time I take a
trip I'll just chew the pills.
Either that, or swallow a
sponge.

BOOK from previous Greeh Sheet
overall plot of this book is a bit
predictable, I was charmed by
the story itself and the com-
plicated yet close friendships
of the characters.
Author and Boss Queen of
the Sweet Potato Queens Jill
Conner Browne says the
entire book is "completely
made up" and that "none of
the characters exist in real life
- except a couple of 'em".
Which ones? Well, far be it
from me to rain on your
parade by telling.
Start your year off right.
March right out today and
pick up a copy of this book.

Parents and children enjoying music


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER


Believing in the principal
that all children are musical,
Linda Grimes teaches pre-
schoolers rhythm in a playful
setting.
"The children listen to the
songs and it helps them with
their musical ability," said
Grimes, director of the Venice
Music Together group.
"All children can learn to
sing in tune, keep a beat," she
said.
The early childhood music
program for babies, toddlers,
preschoolers and kindergart-
ners was first offered to the
public in 1987. The program
pioneered the concept of an
early childhood music cur-
riculum that emphasizes
adult involvement.
"Parents get involved in
the musical program with the
children, to make it a happy
experience," she said.

By emphasizing actual mu-
sic experiences rather than
.concepts about music, Music
Together introduces children
to the pleasures of making
music instead of passively re-
ceiving it from CDs or TV
The classes consist of nurs-
ery rhymes, instrumental jam
sessions and finger plays. The
combination and types of
activities are research-based
and support children's devel-
oping competence in tonality
and rhythm.
The classes usually last 30-
45 minutes and include
movement activities.
Each child participates at
his or her own level in singing,
moving, chanting, listening,
watching or exploring musi-
cal instruments. Any care-
givers can attend with the
children.
Classes are held at theVen-
ice Community Center. For
information, call Grimes at
488-1961.

6230 PETS &
LIVESTOCK

Woof! My name is Ellie May,
and I would like to introduce
myself to you. I was born on
January 2, 2001. I am a big
girl, weighing in at 90 pounds,
which my doctor says is a
good weight for a coonhound.
When I first went to the home
I am living at, there were
teenagers, and we played a
lot outside. That was a lot of
fun! I' loved to run and play
with them. But they moved
away, my Mom says it is
because they grew up and had
to find their own home. Now
.my Mom works a lot, and is
gone way too much. I do not
get to run and play like I used
to, and I really miss that. I
know to go outside to do my
"job", and my Mom says I have
very good manners. I am
spayed, and up to date on all
my shots. Do you have a
home where I can go outside
and run and play? If you do,
please call EARS at 941-475-
0636.
