BY ROBERT BOWDEN
STAFF WRITER


A smattering of May rain
doesn't mean it's safe to toss
that lit cigarette out the truck
window.
In fact, winds and low
humidity have essentially
erased the benefits of rains
that fell this month. Monday
was so dry, and winds so high,
that the National Weather
Service in Tampa posted a
"red flag warning" for Char-
lotte, DeSoto and Sarasota
counties.
That particular warning
means wildfires will start eas-
ily and spread rapidly. Your
flipped cigarette could be the
ignitor.
Weary Florida firefighters,
kept busy by 200-plus fires
around the state last week,
need a respite. A statewide
ban on all burning, even of
yard waste, remains in effect.
So far this May, rainy pat-
terns have flipped from the
first quarter. Earlier, Sarasota
County was the "wettest" of
the West Coast Triangle coun-
ties, but now its drought
index figure is higher than
either Charlotte or DeSoto.
That's because the rain
that has fallen has been most-
ly inland.
The Florida Division of
Forestry says DeSoto has
received 3.5 inches of rain this
month; Charlotte has had 2.6
inches; Sarasota has remain-
ed almost dry with only .3
inches.
Still, not even the DeSoto
rains have caused levels in the
Peace River or Horse Creek to
rise. Traditionally, May sees
one of the lowest water levels
- and makes the Peace a fos-


sil-hunter's !paradise. The
river remains near its annual
low. i
The United States Geo-
logical Survey maintains a
height and flow gauge at the
State Road 76 bridge over the
Peace. On Monday, the level
was 1.33 feegtand above 1981's
record low of .61 feet. The flow
was measured at 60 cubic feet
per second, about half as
much as it should be.
Both readings were trend-
ing downward.

KEEP IT COOL
Q. What is a red flag warning
and when is it issued?
A. A red flagc warning of fire
danger is issued when very
favorable conditions for the
spread of wildfire are occur-
ring now or will occur within
24 hours. Humidities must be
below 35 percent for four
hours or more. Breezy condi-
tions can bring about the
warning, as well.
Q. What should a person do?
A. Don't start any outdoor fire,
All burning has been banned
statewide, in fact, even for
yard waste. Do not flip a ciga-
rette from a moving vehicle or
pull off the road onto dry
grass where hot catalytic con-
verters car start a blaze.


'Critically dry'
Without rain, Sarasota
County on Monday recorded
a drought index figure of 612,
where anything above 400 is
"dry" and anything above 600
is "critically dry." Charlotte
was 605; DeSoto registered

City OK's study of fire department fees


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER


Venice City Council gave
approval Tuesday for a study
of whether to fund the fire
department through fees
rather than taxes.
Mayor Fred Hammett and
Council Member Rick Tacy
voted "no.'
Much of the
fire depart-
ment's funding
is now comes
from ad val-
orem property
taxes. But Fire
Chief John
Reed told
council that
the depart- Reed
ment will have
to either reduce staffing or cut
Services if that continues to
be its primary source of rev-
enue.
He proposed that a con-
sulting firm be hired by the
city to study the option of
doing away with the proper-
ty-based taxing method, and
establishing a fee-based sys-


tem that would assess charg-
es for services, similar to what
exists now for utilities and
solid waste collection.
"This request," said Reed,
"is not tied to the reforms cur-
rently being considered in
Tallahassee. We need to gen-
erate more funding for our
operations whether or not the
Legislature acts in terms of
changing


prove the
city's insur-
ance rating so
that property
owners will
benefit by re-
T duced premi-
Tacy ums."

'Robbing Peter'
Though authorizing the
study in no way commits the
city to changing the funding
mechanism, Tacy objected to
the whole idea.
"People are looking for
reductions in their expenses,"
Tacy said. "I think it's our job


"We'd still be taking
taxpayers' money, but
under the fee-based
system they would not
be able to deduct it on
their income tax return
like they can now."
Venice City Council
Member Rick Tacy

to find places to cut our
spending while still maintain-
ing an adequate level of ser-
vices."
"To me," he said, "it's de-
ceiving to say we will replace
taxes with fees. That's just tak-
ing money out of one pocket
and putting it in another
pocket robbing Peter to
pay Paul.
"We'd still be taking tax-
payers' money, but under the
fee-based system they would
not be able to deduct it on
their income tax return like
they can now."


Speaking in favor of the
study, Council Member John
Simmonds expressed, the
feeling 'that both council and
the public need to have the
actual figures in front of
them, indicating what would
.be involved in changing to
the fee-based
system, and
what those
fees would
have to be in
order to pro-
vide the ser-
vices desired.
Council
Member Bill
Simmonds Wills on
Simmonds agreed, saying
the real ques-
tion for taxpayers is what ser-
vices they want, and what
they are willing to pay for
them.
Reed is authorized to pro-
ceed with the selection of a
consultant, and then to nego-
tiate regarding the cost that
will be involved in complet-
ing the study.

Venice High seniors may have graduated Friday, but
school officially ended Tuesday, as any patient of Drs.
Jesse Ehrlich and Nitin Sallapudi could tell you. The Venice
dentists once again treated their young patients to ice
cream at Bressler's on West Venice Avenue, to mark the
end of the 2006-2007 school year.


Rep. Holder: 'I love my job"


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

Being a state legislator
means a two-month session
of long days filled with high
stress for low pay serving a
sometimes ungrateful con-
stituency.
And freshman State Rep.
Doug Holder likes it so much
he has already filed for re-
election.
"I can't tell you how much I
love my job," he said recently
in an interview with the
Gondolier Sun. "It's so much
more than I ever anticipated."
Holder, R-Sarasota, repre-
sents District 70, taking over
from Nancy Detert, who had
to step down because of term
limits. He won the seat in the
November 2006 general elec-
tion and already has two leg-
islative sessions under his
belt, with a third rapidly ap-
proaching.
Gov. Charlie Crist called a
rare January special session to
address property insurance


issues. Holder said there's a
public perception that finan-
cial relief that was promised
has not been delivered. Ra-
ther than sit and wait for a
check to arrive, he said, peo-
ple may need to push their
insurance companies to act.
"I .think it's kind of a
'squeaky wheel' syndrome,"
he said, pointing out that only
one of three properties he
insures through Citizens, the
state's insurer of last resort,
has had a rebate issued.
If more money isn't flowing
back to property owners in
the next couple of months,
Holder said, he expects he
and his fellow legislators will
be hearing about it.
Biggest success
The 2007 regular session
ran from March through May
4 and included routine mat-
ters such as drafting the state
budget and unusual ones
such as rescuing the state's
high school gifted programs
from near oblivion.


A bill intended to eliminate
abuses in honors programs
would have deleted high
school grades from special
education funding, including
honors programs. Sarasota
County parents who saw the
potential impact on Pine
View School sounded an
alarm just before the bill was
to be voted on and an amend-
ment was added protecting
high school funding for an-
other year, pending program
review by the state.
"To me, that was the big-
gest success we had up there,"
Holder said. "Going into this
whole process, I didn't think
that one person could make a
difference."
Scrapped
But the biggest issue the
Legislature tackled was prop-
erty tax reform, and it re-
cessed without adopting any
plan. It reconvenes in mid
June to try again.

Ode to lovebugs


Look at the windshield, the
chrome and the grille,
All splatted with bugs that
are not on the "pill."
Coupled pairs fly along in
conjugal bliss
And try as I might, these
bugs I can't miss.
Smeared glass makes it
hard to see far ahead;
I have to look through the
remains of the dead..
They're here in the spring
and again in the fall;
We've got them right now (I
haven't hit all).
How long will they stay and
when will they leave?
Forever and never is what I
believe.

permission to raze the exist-

Diocese issues challenge: Protect our children


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER

rilchael's On East in Sar-
asota ws ditheesetting Monday
for a media appreciation lun-
cheon sponsored by the
Diocese of Venice, part of the
observance of the Catholic
Church's 41st annual World
Communications Day.
The theme of this year's
international event was "Child-
ren and the Media: A Challenge
for Education," featuring


Diocese of Venice Bishop Frank J. Dewane speaks on the
theme "Children and the Media: A Challenge for Education" at
Monday's media appreciation luncheon, sponsored by the dio-
cese at Michael's On East in Sarasota.

Catholic School in Sarasota, show a PowerPoint presentation depicting their intense use of va'ri-
ous media in both education and recreation. At far right is Adela Gonzales White, director of
communications for the Diocese of Venice.


Mary Campo, director of stew-
ardship and development for
the Diocese of Venice, offers a
challenge to print and broad-
cast media to take responsi-
bility for the messages they
are sending, particularly to
children.


Bishop Frank J. Dewane as the
keynote speaker.
The local diocese, which
covers 10 Florida counties
and is one of the largest in the
United States, hosted more
than 80 media guests and
denominational representa-
tives.
"The media knows how to
send messages to our chil-
dren," said Dewane. "But we
need to assure that those


messages are positive rather
than destructive. We all have a
responsibility to protect our
children by instructing them
in beauty, ethics, values and
life."
He reminded his audi-
ence of the negative impact
created by much of what the
various media produce and
which is aimed at younger
audiences.
Dewane urged parents,


teachers and the media to
take responsibility for un-
derstanding not only the
technology that is rapidly
developing, but also the use
of that technology to make
the world a better place.
'I sent you'
Mary Campo, the diocese
director of stewardship and
development, reviewed many
of the technological initia-


tives being implemented
by Catholic churches and
schools in the region to
improve education and stim-
ulate positive growth among
students of all ages.
"We are building vibrant
communities of faith which
are filled with the Holy Spirit,"
Campo said.
She closed the program
with the story of a man who
looked at all the tragedy in the


world and in his own neigh-
borhood. The man said to
God, "Why don't you send
some help?" God answered
by saying, "I did I sent
you!"
Campo reiterated the sen-
timents of Dewane by chal-
lenging listeners to reach out
to the world around them
with a helping hand and a
positive influence.

Sarasota County stresses



emergency preparedness


Emergency Services Manager Ed McCrane dis-
cussed plans Sarasota County has in place for
potential disasters at a presentation Monday at
the Emergency Operations Center.


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

"The early bird gets the
worm, but the second mouse
always gets the cheese."
That was the theme of a
presentation made by Emerg-
ency Services Manager Ed
McCrane 'Monday at the
county's Emergency Oper-
ations Center on the sixth
floor of the Sarasota County
Administration Center.
"I like being the second
mouse," McCrane said, ex-
plaining the importance of
learning from the mistakes of
other cities such as New
Orleans and employing
preparedness for the impend-
ing hurricane season.
"We got a break last year,"
McCrane said: "That quiet
storm season allowed us the
opportunity to continue to
put better practices in place."
Those practices include
better cooperation among
the public, the county, the
cities and myriad agencies
such as the school board,
health and human services,
the police and fire depart-
ments and public safety


groups, McCrane said.
'And it's not just about hur-
ricanes," he said. "We operate
for all hazards under our.
,comprehensive emergency
management plan."
Hurricane season, howev-
er, captures everyone's imagi-
nation, he said, noting the
upcoming season is predicted
to have 17 named storms,
nine hurricanes and five in-
tense hurricanes.
"It only takes one storm, so
who cares what the numbers
are?" McCrane said. "It won't
change the way we plan."
Help yourself
Part of that plan includes
an "All Hazards Be Prepared"
area on the county's Web site
where the public can log on
for the latest updates on
where to go in an emergency
and how to be ready in ad-
vance of one.
Another improvement the
county has made is providing
shelters for people with spe-
cial needs.
"All three of these shelters
are enhanced hurricane pro-
tection-type buildings, which
are elementary schools, built


for that intense (storm) level,"
McCrane said. "They've got
generator capability, so they
can run the air conditioning."
McCrane said those areas
have been supplied with oxy-
gen tanks and extra cots to
better accommodate elderly
and special-needs victims
who may not otherwise get
out in time.
Recovery is just as impor-
tant as preparedness, Mc-
Crane said, outlining plans
for neighborhood points of
distribution for food and
water, debris removal and
satellite phones for enhanced
communication during those
all-important hours following
a storm.
Even animals have been
taken into consideration. Pet-
friendly shelters have been
designated in the latest plan,
and animal response teams
are in place to round up larg-
er animals, such as cattle,
after a storm.
Although the county has
drastically upgraded its disas-
ter preparedness and recov-
ery plans, McCrane could not
stress enough the importance
of the public preparing itself.
"Everyone needs to be pre-
pared and have a plan,"
McCrane said. "They can't re-
ly solely on government, be-
cause we can't be everywhere
right away."

Economist: Financial outlook


improving for Sarasota County


At a workshop for the Sarasota County
Commission Thursday, Hank Fishkind outlined
the direction in which the county should move


within the next couple of

BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Stay the course and weath-
er the storm; the turbulent
economic skies we see today
should clear within the next
two years.
That was the gist of a pre-
sentation Thursday by econo-
mist Hank Fishkind in an
informal workshop held for
the Sarasota County Com-
mission, which examined the
county's financial direction.
Fishkind's company, Fish-
kind & Associates, Inc., was
formed in 1987 and is an eco-
nomic and financial consult-
ing firm with offices in
Orlando, Naples and Pqrt St.
Lucie. The firm has extensive
experience in economic and
fiscal impact analysis, fore-
casting and finance through-
out Florida and the United
States.
"I don't think we're de-
scending into a recession,"
Fishkind told the commis-
sioners. "I think there's a lot
more economic strength than
people realize (and) 2008 and
2009 are going to be consider-
ably stronger."
"We have this inventory of
unsold existing homes that's
very large," Fishkind said,


years.

"but don't confuse the inven-
tory of unsold homes with the
number of existing homes
that are selling."
Although the number of
existing home sales has drop-
ped 20-30 percent from its
peak, it's really just edged
down from extraordinary lev-
els to normal levels, he re-
minded the commissioners.
Except if...
Fishkind's only caveat to
his prediction for a speedy
economic recovery was the
possibility of a spike in energy
prices.
"Insurance and property
taxes, obviously, are (also)
major issues," Fishkind said.
Fishkind said the upcom-
ing special session of the state
Legislature from June 12-22
will go a long way toward
addressing those topics.
"I think, given the politics
of the situation, there has to
be some property tax cut,"
Fishkind said, adding he did
not believe a property tax cut
was necessarily the best
answer, because it would do
nothing to help those who do
not own their own home.
"I have been crafting a pro-
posal whereby the state
would commit to cut the


school property tax at a rate of
$5 billion a year for the next
five years," Fishkind said. "I
think local governments
would be able to commit to
some cap on total spending
and I think there is a way to
do that in a way that would
not cripple our cities and
counties."
County Commissioner Joe
Barbetta, also opposed to a
large cut in property taxes,
voiced his concern.
"There are ramifications
with the proposals before us,"
Barbetta said, citing the enor-
mous challenge he and his
colleagues face in trying to
provide valued public ser-
vices without funding that
comes through property tax-
es.
Fishkind agreed, recalling
a recent conversation he had
with Gov. Charlie Crist in
which Crist insisted the peo-
ple wanted a cut in their
property taxes.
"I said, well, I understand
that, but the people also
wanted a high speed train
until they were told how
much it was going to cost,"
Fishkind said. "Leadership is
helping to explain and craft
good policy, not just saying,
'The people want it.'"

It appears rains missed the

absorbed by the dry ground.
But Monday's combina-

and brisk winds evaporated
what might have been left. By

HOLDERfrom Page 1 A


Going into the regular ses-
sion House leaders floated a
proposal to eliminate taxes
on most real property, mak-
ing up the shortfall in revenue
by increasing the state sales
tax. That idea drew loud op-
position from cities and
counties, as well as people
concerned about the impact
of a higher sales tax on low-
income Floridians.
That strategy appears to
have been scrapped in favor
of a graduated scale of home-
stead exemptions ranging
from 80 percent on houses
valued at less than $300,000
to 30 percent of any value
more than a million.
Holder said the "new" pro-
posal actually came up dur-
ing the regular session but
was pushed into the back-
ground by the leadership's
plan.
"It'll be interesting to see
how it develops," he said.
"One of the promises you
hear coming out of the House
is that if this program doesn't
work, we will stop it."

Killed bills
Holder said he was well
prepared for his responsibili-
ties as a representative but
was surprised at the cool rela-
tions between his chamber


and the Florida Senate.
Of the six bills he spon-
sored, two died in the House
and one, regarding vaccina-
tions, was picked up by the
Department of Health. The
other three sailed through the
House but ran into a wall in
the Senate because of the per-
ception they might have a
financial impact, though
none was believed likely.
"It didn't make sense to me
that the House and Senate
didn't have that understand-
ing prior," he said. "Bills that
passed unanimously in the
House were not even consid-
ered to hit the floor in the
Senate. It really killed a lot of
bills."
Building bridges to his
Senate counterparts is some-
thing he plans to work on for
the next session.
"I didn't realize that in
Tallahassee you have to lobby
a lot," he said.
His own bills' fate didn't
take much away from his first
sessions as a representative,
however.
"It was a good session,"
Holder said. "It was definitely
educational.
"It was fun.."

Property tax reform goes into overtime


S BY BOB FLISS
STAFF WRITER
Forget anything you may
have read about property tax
reform this year.
Look for the House Repub-
lican leadership to start push-
ing a new strategy that didn't
get much attention during the
regular session. Tax reform
conferees are meeting in
Tallahassee in preparation for
a special legislative session
beginning June 12.
Last week, a letter was sent
to all House members by Rep.
Dean Cannon, R-Winter Park,
who chairs .the joint tax
reform conference commit-
tee.
The letter outlines a basic
shift in Republican tax-cut-
ting strategy. The focus now is
now on providing tax relief by
increasing homestead ex-
emptions on a percentage
basis. About 90 percent of
homestead owners would get
a larger exemption through
this plan and Cannon
noted that the legislation
could be written so the
remainder at least don't suffer
any increase.
Portability
Here's how one proposal
cited by Cannon would work:
The first $300,000 of a
homestead's just value would
get an 80-percent exemption.
That means owners would
pay their locality's ad valorem
rate on no more than $60,000
assessed value.
Anything over $300,000 but
less than $1 million would get
a 70-percent exemption. So, a
$400,000 house would have
an taxable value of $90,000 -
$60,000 for the first $300,000,
plus 30 percent of $100,000,
or $30,000.
Any value bver $1 million
would qualifyfora30-percent
exemption.
Percentage-based relief is
also supposed to ease the
"portability" problem of the
current proper) ta \x 'ystem:-
Homeowners who purchased
their properties recently
would get proportionately
greater relief than those who
have been in their houses for
many years and have enjoyed
only small annual assessment
increases because of the "Save
Our Homes" amendment.
Save Our Homes retained
Florida's traditional home-
stead exemption, under
which owners don't pay any
tax on the first $25,000 value
of their home. It capped the
annual assessment increase
to no more than 3 percent, no
matter what the real estate
market was doing.
As a result, the 12 years
since Save Our Homes be-
came law have seen the emer-
gence of two classes of Florida
property owners. Business
and nonhomestead residen-
tial owners have often en-
dured double-digit increases
in their annual property tax
bills.
But the supposedly privi-
leged class of homestead
owners benefits only as long
as they stay in their current
homes. As soon as they move,
they will have to wait several
months to qualify as home-
steaders again, and will be
paying taxes on the full value
of their new home rather than
their artificially low Save Our
Homes assessment.
A departure
With three weeks before
the special session, the vari-
ous relief percentages in the
plan outlined in Cannon's let-
ter could certainly be adjust-'
ed. But they at least indicate
the general direction of the
new Republican plan.
"This is a proposal, and I'm
not sure what percentage the
final numbers will be," cau-
tioned Rep. Mike Grant, R-
Port Charlotte, who sits on the
conference committee.
Percentage-based tax relief
is also a big departure from
the House Republican posi-
tion at the start of conference


committee meetings during
the final weeks of the regular
session.
At the time, Cannon de-
clared that the House had set
annual relief targets of $1,200


for homestead owners, $750
for non-homestead owners,
and $3,300 for commercial
owners. The fact that no
Senate proposal met these
targets was the major reason
for the special session.
Also missing from the new
House strategy is any men-
tion of substituting sales


taxes for property taxes. The
original House plan unveiled
in February, prior to the start
of the regular session, envi-
sioned asking voters for
a 2.5-cent additional sales
tax in exchange for essential-
ly eliminating all ad valorem
taxes on homestead proper-

Windfall?
The proposals would have
included a law requiring local
governments to roll their
millage rates back to fiscal
2000-2001 levels roughly
the point when Florida real
estate prices began skyrock-
eting.
At the time, the Republican


position was that local gov-
ernments were enjoying a
"tax windfall" by simply leav-
ing their millage rates the
same and allowing annual
assessment increases to reap
a rich tax harvest for them.
The impact of the-increas-
ing homestead exemptions is'
harder to gauge. Communi-


ties with a preponderance of
homestead properties are
likely to lose more than those
with a large commercial tax
base.
"I believe that the final
product that we come up with
will have substantial relief and
equity for all classes of proper-
ty tax payers," Grant said.

Sometimes one person can make a difference


Future elections should be much more
secure and free of controversy, thanks
to two Sarasota County women.
On the local level, the county is
sorting through how to provide a paper trail
in elections, thanks to Kindra Muntz,
founder of Sarasota Alliance for Fair Elec-
tions.
She spearheaded a citizens' petition ini-
tiative that resulted in voter approval of a
county charter amendment in November
2006 for voter-verified paper ballots and
mandatory audits of election results.
Ironically, had such standards been in
place earlier, the fair election movement
might have gone no further. November, you
will recall, was when Republican Vern
Buchanan beat Democrat Christine Jen-
nings by a few hundred votes, with more
than 18,000 ballots in the election showing


no choice for either candidate.
As a result, Congress is touting a Voter
Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act
that would require a paper trail of votes to
back up the electronic ballot results.
We have questioned Jennings' dogged
determination to take the seat from
Buchanan, who is in Washington, D.C. rep-
resenting the 13th District and doing a good
job.
The catch is, and always will be, those
18,000 nonvotes. Either that many people
were turned off by the nasty election and
did not vote, the ballot was drawn up poor-
ly or there was a computer malfunction.
The state has investigated and found no
computer problem. Jennings' camp argues
that the testing was inadequate.
Through the months following last
November's contentious vote, Jennings has
.


maintained a stubborn resolve that she
should be the congresswoman from District
13.
Recently, a Congressional committee
agreed to investigate the election results -
not surprising, since the House is controlled
now by Democrats. What that committee
may find is anyone's guess. We believe that
evidence of any computer malfunction or
manipulation of the results will be difficult
to uncover at this stage.
Still, Jennings' pursuit of answers -
potentially in disregard of her political
future has stirred action.
Democratic Sen. Diane Feinstein, who
filed a Ballot Integrity Act bill, cited Jen-
nings' plight as a "warning that must be
heeded."
Columnists and editorial writers nation-
wide have picked up her cause and called


for voting reform. Florida Secretary of State
Kurt Browning said, according to a press
release, that the District 13 case forced
Florida to eliminate paperless voting.
We have always favored a paper trail that
gives voters more confidence their vote will
count. We understand the concerns -
mostly financial of local supervisors of
election and others.
Still, there are few things, on a national
scale, more important than the integrity of
our vote.
Give Christine Jennings credit for sticking
to her guns and risking her political future
to seek change.
It is a goal she has embraced from the
beginning always telling interviewers
that the issue is not just about her.
Now we can see it is indeed not just
about her.


Playing catch-up



is hard to do


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


The city and county are
tightening their purse strings
in anticipation of the state
cutting revenues' o normally
generate by property taxes.
Yet while they are doing
that, their costs have escalat-
ed so much that the public
will be asked to pay more
taxes.
It is almost ironic in a way
that the city of Venice is rais-
ing its utility taxes (it calls
them fees) by 38 percent in
some cases. Utilities are not
tied to the general budget and
must balance on their own,
and with energy costs in-
creases the rates likely would
go up anyway; it's just that 38
percent sounds high.
(Let me say I am excited,
however, that the city is initi-
ating a sliding fee schedule
based on usage that will
penalize big users. Histor-
ically in municipalities this
has brought down water
usage per person.)
Now the city will be some-
where in the middle of water
and sewer rate costs among
our neighbors. While that isn't
bad, I always thought our effi-
ciencies would put us at the
lower end.
The other thing that makes
one wonder about tightening
the belts is that the police
sergeants and lieutenants
have been offered a 12-per-
cent increase, assuming they
meet some standards.
The things they will get
special pay for are for being fit
and being good with weap-
ons. They may add among
other things, like staying
healthy.
It seems to me those are
things they get paid for any-
way; why reward them for
what they should do well any-
way?
So, you may be getting
some property tax relief but
don't be surprised if the mon-
ey government gives you, you
give back to them.

LEHTERS FROM OUR READERS


Venice's charm has survived through all


Editor:
After reading several letters to the editor regarding airport
development, I decided it was overdue that those who support
development get on the bandwagon and voice a "pro" opinion.
As a born and raised Venetian, I, too, believe that develop-
ment is well overdue. Have you seen the view of the current air-
port property as you approach the Circus Bridge? It could sure-
ly use some sort of improvement.
Although I am not a boater per se, we are often on the water
with friends who are, and I support a marina and hotel for the
local area. Recently we hosted a large family gathering and
would have loved for our family and friends to be able to stay
downtown. A hotel closer to our local beaches, as well as a
choice of waterfront dining, would have been welcome and
appreciated.
There also seems to be some confusion as to what will hap-
pen to the golf course. The naysayers seem to be convinced
that under new development they will lose their affordable
golf. Apparently these naysayers are not listening to our com-
munity leaders and the developers, who assure them they will
not lose this affordability.
If Venice has not lost its "quaintness" with the increased
growth and development to date, it will surely not lose it with,
the improvement of the airport property.
So, speak up Venetians who support this development.
Otherwise, we will lose what could present itself to be an
incredible opportunity for our local businesses and communi-
ty to thrive.

Leaving Iraq wrong


on many levels
action, and Editor:
-8247. The In his response to my letter
send them concerning the Democrats'
If there's a proposals for exiting Iraq, Mr.
P!) Fennessey has a few things
lks. These very wrong.
re playing First, he equates flawed
our Florida but generally accepted intelli-
ke a differ- gence with downright lies. It's
easy to shout "lies, lies," but
much harder to come up with
Jack Aland provable examples, which is
Venice probably the reason he offers
none.
Second, while the vast
go majority of Iraqis may want
us out of the country, all the
page story polls I've seen show they want
-r problem us to wait until the current
nty. What violence and terrorism are
ed is that reduced to a level they think


they can handle alone.
Third, he asks, "'And what is
this talk about defending
freedom?" Well, I believe it
was President Kennedy in his
inaugural address who said,
"Let every nation know ...
that we shall pay any price,
oppose any foe, to assure the
survival and the success of
liberty."
President George Bush
reiterated that vow in his sec-
ond inaugural address, say-
ing, "The United States will
not ignore your oppression or
excuse your oppressors. When
you stand for liberty, we will
stand with you."
Finally, Mr. Fennessey had
one thing right. I would not
"send" my children to Iraq or
Afghanistan. I would, howev-
er, support their decision to
join our all-volunteer armed
forces, if age eligible, in the
same way my parents sup-
ported my decision to enlist

Chamber: Airport must be good neighbor


JIM CLINCH
S, ; ;h1 l ,,K .


Many people have asked
where the Venice business
community stands regarding
the development of vacant
airport property and the fu-
ture of the Lake Venice Golf
Club. As the lead organization
in our local business commu-
nity, it is understandable folks
are looking for theVenice Area
Chamber of Commerce to
take a stand on airport devel-
opment.
The fact is, we don't cur-
rently support any specific
plan. Like the majority of citi-
zens, we want to learn more
about this complicated issue
so we can weigh the options.
Based on what we know so
far, however, there are some
positions your Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce does
endorse. There are also some
things we don't want to see at
our airport.
We DO believe that a rea-
sonable compromise can be
reached to develop some of
the vacant airport land in ways
that enhance our community.
We believe a hotel, convention
center or a public marina are
good and positive things that,
if done right, would improve
the quality of life in the Venice
area and would benefit every-
one, including other local
businesses.
We DO NOT believe that
development has to be at the
expense of the environment.
Much of the land in question
is either barren and weed-
choked or infested with non-
native plants. A resort hotel,
as-an example, would be a sig-
niticant I'nprovernenet. 'he
effects on wildlife can be mit-
igated and native vegetation
restored to undeveloped


"green space" as a condition
of the lease.
We DO believe more avia-
tion-related business at the
airport is a good thing. This
might include light manufac-
turing of parts and equip-
ment, as well as sales and ser-
vice related to aviation.
We DO NOT think in-
creased air traffic is necessar-
ily a good thing. We are con-
cerned about noise pollution
and exhaust fumes.
We think the airport needs
to be a good neighbor. For
that reason we favor noise
abatement requirements for
takeoffs and landings and
measures to protect nearby
residents from the noxious
fumes of excessively idling
planes. Commercial passen-
ger flights or large-scale air
freight shipment at Venice
airport remains a bad idea
and we oppose it.
We DO support and con-
gratulate the Venice City
Council for having the good
sense to exclude residential
development such as condos
from consideration on airport
land. We also believe there
should be no vehicle access to
new development from Har-
bor Drive. City council mem-
bers have indicated they
agree with this as well.
We DO NOT think the city
and some local media outlets
have done an adequate job
getting the facts out. There are
way too many angry people
spreading misinformation
and getting a free forum in
the press to do it. We hope this
situation can be improved so
that opinions can be based on
facts and not just emotion.
The city has chosen to use
an outside consultant to design
and facilitate the charrettes;
this seems like a step in the
right direction. We would chal-
lenge the media to focus less on
controversy and more on pre-
senting the facts we all need to
make informed decisions.
We DO believe that Lake
Venice Golf Club is a valuable
asset to our community and
we would like to 'ee it contin-
ue as an affordable course
open to the public. We believe
city council has said the same


thing and we applaud it for
that.
We also believe the Venice
Golf Association deserves our
gratitude and thanks. People
seem to forget that when the
founding shareholders built
Lake Venice it was the only
public golf course from Sara-
sota to Port Charlotte. The
shareholders risked their cap-
ital to lease airport property
and build a golf course that
was open to the public and
that local residents and visi-
tors have enjoyed since.
Enjoying something for
many years, however, does
not make it yours. Lake Venice
Golf Club does hot belong to
the golfers or to the .citizens of
Venice. It is a business and it
belongs to its owners, in this
case the VGA. That means it
can sell its lease if it wants.
Angry golfers need to under-
stand this.
The city has indicated it
wants to make sure any new
leaseholder continues to pro-
vide affordable golf for local
residents. We support this.
Finally, we DO NOT under-
stand and certainly DO NOT
approve of the level of vitriol
in the rhetoric of some who
are speaking out on this issue.
There is no legitimate reason
for this. The harangues of
some smack of nothing more
than playing politics.
The Venice Area Chamber
of Commerce believes the cit-
izens of Venice homeown-
ers, pilots, golfers, business
people, journalists and gov-
ernment officials can have
a civil exchange of ideas and
arrive at solutions that pro-
vide the greatest good for the
greatest number of people.
We sincerely hope that all
parties can be mature enough
to understand that everyone
will not get everything they
want.

Majority against
airport development
Editor:
This is in response to
Jeanette Gates' letter in which
she takes a "pro" stand in
favor of airport development.
Read the numbers, Jeanet-
te. There are more Venice res-
idents against airport devel-


opment than in favor of it. We
have enough condos, shops,
hotels and convenience cen-
ters.
Venice is well known for its
quaint, charming character,
and those of us who value
that description would like it
kept that way.
As far as your statement,
"Those who spoke out against
airport development will be
long gone," I beg to differ with
you. We are fighting to keep
Venice the place we originally
came h&re for in order to stay.
Its charm and unique quality

will be gone forever with
overdevelopment.
If you are looking for more
development, move to Sara-
sota. It has development go-
ing on all the time. The build-
ings there keep getting higher
and higher, and beach access
is becoming increasingly
scarce as the buildings go up.
We neither need or want
that for Venice. The majority
spoke, and will continue to do
so.

No bad news is good news


Happy articles. I would like to call and commend Susan
Cairo on writing the modern fairy tale that had a happy ending.
It's so uplifting to read a happy story instead of about teens
who are burning each other, DUIs or murders. The article
about Olga and her music, and her lifting up the lives of people
in the nursing home, is very comforting. It's good to see happy
articles. I


Not buying it. The Venice
Gondolier Sun recently pub-
lished an excellent editorial
concerning Sarasota County
Property Appraiser Mr. James
Todora's $250,000 annual tax-
ation of land that Habitat for
Humanity banks for future
development. His short-sight-
ed interpretation of circuit
court rulings makes Sarasota
County the only place Habitat
pays Florida's property tax.
Habitat for Humanity, an or-
ganization attempting to help
low-income people receive
home ownership, is penalized
for its efforts by Mr. Todora's
refusal to grant an exemption.
Mr. Todora's muddled response
defending his actions sug-
gests that he considers the
general public to be so gull-
ible that they will believe any-
thing. Should Mr. Todora run
for re-election for Sarasota
County's property appraiser,
he will certainly not get my
vote and I'll remind every
voter I know about his ac-
tions. Hopefully the Venice
Gondolier Sun will reprint its
editorial at that time.
No honey. Mr. Vedder's re-
cent column regarding a re-
cent activist he's right on.
The entire community has
known of her grandstanding
for some time. Unfortunately,
her opinions are rarely based
on fact, but rather presump-
tion and misconceptions.
She's never learned, as most
of us did in kindergarten, that
you don't attract bees with
vinegar, but with honey. She's
better characterized as an agi-
tator. Second, why is it that all
we read regarding the airport
never mentions what is need-
ed to keep the airport in tip-
top shape, but only what the
people want. There's a huge
difference between what one
needs and what one wants.
Misused. I believe in power
of the press; however, in Bob
Vedder's vicious attack and
sophomoric ratings about
Sue Lang, that power was bla-
tantly misused. If he disagrees
with her views, then he
should state in factual terms
why he disagrees. But to rant
and rave as he did was taking
the power of the press to a
destructive extreme. Oh, yes,
if she chooses to do so, will
Mr. Vedder give Sue Lang an
equal opportunity and space
to respond?
EDITOR'S NOTE: Her response
appeared in the edition following
Bob Vedder's column.

about some of the lead arti-
cles in the Gondolier Sun. I
am so happy that you have
taken such interest in writing
about the water shortage that
we're experiencing, as well as
what we anticipate experi-
encing; and also, the ideas
that are set forth by surround-
ing counties. Cow Pen Slough
has been proven to need so
many chemicals to make it
palatable and safe to drink.
You wonder how it will affect
people who get cancer and
the hidden causes behind
these. I, and other people who
are not politically connected
to the town and developers,
really wish that people would
consider the fact that water is
a basic need of us humans,
and we really don't need a lot
of fancy hotels just for a tax
base. Actually, with the tax
that these people would pay
to develop hotels, where peo-
ple would use more water,
we'd just have to turn around
and fund some studies to
make the water safe that we're
giving these people. Appre-
ciate the Gondolier Sun mak-
ing this public and drawing it
to our attention. I hope it'll
keep it alive. The human body
is pretty close to 80 percent
water, I believe. That shows
you how important it is. Pri-
vate interests, take heed. We're
going to fight it.
Premeditated. About the
two Venice youths accused of
attempted murder: What the
father said, that the children
were stupid and careless, ob-
viously runs in the family. I
don't know either the victim
or the criminals, but second-
a degree; murder;ithey i -say,i 'is_.
"premeditated. I would say'
that these boys premeditated
this. They went and got gaso-
line and they poured it
around the place. They must
have talked about it before


they did it. It wasn't some-
thing they did out of rage or
jealousy or something at the
time.
EDITOR'S NOTE: According to
the father of one of the boys, the
charges have been dropped. The
state attorney's office declines to
discuss the matter.
Can't stop it. I'm just so ex-
asperated- so sick and tired of
this Sue Lang and her neigh-
borhoods coalition group and
all these people who keep writ-
ing in, "Don't do this and don't
do that," about the airport. No
condos or a convention center
there on the Venice airport -
and get rid of the airport by
putting it out by 1-75. This is so
ridiculous. The older people in
this town have to realize that to
keep the stores in downtown
Venice full of young people
who will buy and keep the
stores in business, you have to
have development come in to
bring the tourists here. And we
have long, long been waiting
for a convention center here in
Venice. We need it so badly.
And, don't move our airport. It
is part of our neighborhood,
just like theVenice High School
Leave it all alone. You can't stop
growth. You just can't stop it.
I'm all for it. I'm voting to let the
airport stay, let it be developed.
These groups and these old
people are ridiculous. If they
don't like it, why don't they
move somewhere else?

CITY NOTES


Venice considers
utility rate increase
Venice City Council will
consider increasing rates,
charges and fees for water
and sewer service at the regu-
larly scheduled city council
meeting on June 12 at 1:30
p.m. in council chambers at
City Hall, 401 W Venice Ave.
There will be an opportu-
nity for the public to speak.
The proposed rate increas-
es are on the city's Web site at
venicegov.com.
Volunteers needed
The city of Venice is look-
ing for volunteers to help
mark areas where stormwater
flows into natural bodies of
water.
The program is part of an
effort to warn people not to
put debris in stormwater
structures that can affect the
quality of the environment,
especially for sea life.
For information, contact
Val Raney, 486-2626, Ext.
2331.
Leave utility
markers alone
With various construction
projects taking place in
Venice, there are numerous
small flags marking under-
ground utility lines placed in
the ground to prevent,digging
or disturbing existing pipes
and wires.
The locations of the utili-
ties are marked with small
flags or paint in the public
right of way or easement
where the utilities are located.
Some of the utility easements
appear to be on private prop-
erty.
To prevent loss of services,
no digging should take place
within 2 feet of these utility
location markers.
It is unlawful to remove
these markers. Once the work
is completed in the area, the
contractors will remove the
flags.
The flags or paint are color
coded to show what type of
utility is buried in the area.


Green: sewer lines
Purple: reuse or reclaimed
irrigation water pipes
Blue: potable water pipes
Orange: communications
cables or conduit
Yellow, gas, oil or petrole-

Red: electric lines, cable or
conduit
Pink: temporary survey

Save Your Declining Equity

Without Increasing Your Payments, Refinance To A 15-Year Mortgage

A Smart Loan For Smart People


By now you realize if you have a 30 year mortgage, a line of credit,
and credit cards, as you make payment after payment, your balances
barely drop. Lenders design these loans with their "interest" in mind,
not yours. With a 30 year mortgage, even if you get a good rate, you
pay mostly interest for a long time. 80% to 85% of your first payment
is interest. A line of credit is all interest, and credit cards aren't far
behind. The problem right now is if you have a 30 year loan and/or
line of credit you are building so little equity. There is hardly anything
going to principal. Because of the declining real estate market and
these bills with hardly any principal to pay them down, you are losing
precious equity instead of building it.

15 Year Mortgage --Affordable Equity Builder--
Keeping Your Payments The Same

At 6%, with a 15 year mortgage, 40% of your first payment is principal
(instead of 15%). You would think the payment would be twice as
much as a 30 year mortgage-but it's not. Its only $245 more per
$100,000 you would borrow. A 30 year payment is $599.00 and the 15
year is $844.00 per month per $100,000.
The total interest on a $100,000, 30-year loan, at 6% would be
$115,000. With a 15 year mortgage you would "only" pay $51,000 of
total interest. After 15 years of a 30 year mortgage, you still owe
$71,000 (71%), even though in real dollars you have already spent
$107,000. (More than enough to pay it off) Obviously after 15 years
with a 15 year loan, your home is paid for.

Here is our plan to get you in a 15-year. mortgage without spending a
dollar extra per month. Remember its only $245 extra per month per
$100,000 for a 15 year loan. Credit cards are the key player. Just
about everybody is paying at least $245.00 per month on credit cards.
You refinance down to a 15 year loan and pay off the cards but keep
making the credit card payments to your mortgage lender. The old
credit card payments pay the increase in your new 15 year mortgage
payment. This dead end credit card interest is now converted to
precious mortgage principal coming directly off your mortgage
--balance. Inwjust-5-years-over-half of-yOur-mortgage payment is going
to principal, building valuable equity. Simply if you have a $500.00
house payment and $500 of credit card payments, you refinance and
combine those debts, and the $1000.00 total you were paying
between these debts now pays a 15 year mortgage payment. You are
still paying the same total ($1000) per month, but now 40% of your
first payment is principal, and your home is paid off in 15 years.

balance and building valuable equity.
The payment is only $365 more, but is all extra
principal. It's also about $100,000 less interest.

When your house is paid for in 15 years, you would still owe $106,573
if you had a 30 year mortgage. Also after 15 years, 60% of your
payment is still interest with a 30 year loan.

Paying credit cards is a win/win scenario with a 15-year mortgage.
The interest you were paying is gone and now being used to build
much needed equity.

Because property values are declining, you need to act now.
A 15 year Mortgage is a Real Smart Decision Even If You Don't Have

Indians thrash Mantas 48-17


BY DEBBIE KIEWIET
SPORTS EDITOR

"It went a little better than
I was expecting," said new
head football coach John
Peacock of the Venice
Indians' 48-17 win at Lemon
Bay Saturday night.
Relying on basic plays in
the initial test of their new
offense, the Indians moved
the ball 317 yards in 36 carries
for 4 touchdowns. Venice was
just as successful in the air
with sophomore quarterback
Trey Burton connecting on 8
of 9 throws for 136 yards and 3
more TDs. The Indians had 15
first downs, 4 passing and 11
rushing.
"We were able to throw
and catch the ball better than


I thought we would,"
Peacock said, "and I was
happy with how we were able
to go on a couple different
snap counts offensively with-
out jumping offsides."
The Venice coach was also
pleased with his squad's
defensive effort. "We've been
spending most of our time on
offense, and I was real happy
with how we played defen-
sively. Ethan Mix, Andy
Czuprynski and Gerald Oriol
all had unbelievable games.
"I thought we were physi-
cal. I thought we out-hit
Lemon Bay," Peacock said.
"It really showed that we've
been working hard in the
weight room."
Cody Reinert sprinted 73
yards on the first play of the


game to put the Indians up 7-
0. On the Indians' next pos-
session, Jimmy Laurie shot
through the middle for a 34-
yard TD run with 9:25 left in
the first quarter. Tommy
Hanks kicked the extra point
after a Burton QB-keeper to
boost the Indian lead to 21-0.
Lemon Bay managed its
first TD of the game to start
out the second quarter with
the Mantas' Ed Lauglin bring-
ing in the pass in the endzone
and Sean Spraggins kicking
the extra point, 21-7.
Cody Reinert and Paul
Costanzo ran the ball for back-
to-back first downs, and
Burton connected with Gerry
Hunek for a second-quarter
touchdown, followed up with
another extra point (6 of 7 total

Named outstanding athletes at Venice High School for the
2006-2007 school year were Ryan Anderson and Natalie
Gaudreau. Plaques were presented last week to the two grad-
uating seniors with Anderson receiving the Kappelmann
Award and Gaudreau the Wentzel Award.


Gaudreau, who plans to
major in biology with a minor
in education, would like to
come back to Venice to teach
and coach in time for her


younger sister's senior year.
This summer she will be

for Venice), 28-7. Another
Burton-Hunek toss just before
halftime sent the teams to the
locker room, 35-7.
After picking up a couple
of first downs, the Mantas'
Scraggins made good on a 40-
yard field goal attempt, 35-10.
With 5:40 left in the third,
Wilkinson caught a Burton
throw for another Indian TD,
41-10. Venice made their final
touchdown of the night with
Billy Marsden taking the pitch
around the end.
Lemon Bay's Robbie Blume
took the handoff inside for the
final Manta TD in the last
quarter. Spraggins kicked the
extra point for the 48-17 final.
While pleased with Sat-
urday night's outcome, Pea-
cock isn't satisfied.


"We need to build on the
progress we've made," he
said. "We need to continue
making gains over the sum-
mer. We need to continue
implementing our offense.
We just ran our basic plays
Saturday night. We need to
get our whole offense going."
Over the summer, Indian
players will be lifting and
doing field work in prepara-
tion for next fall's schedule. For

rowed to a winning time of
6:59.8 to beat Augusta by a
length. Although the 500-
meter split time of 1:45 was
below what will be required to
meet the speeds at Cincin-
nati, Coach Pete de Manio felt
it was a good performance.
Augusta crossed behind Os-
prey in a time of 7:01.3.
The Osprey double was
caught by Chattanooga in the
last few strokes as the boats
crossed dead even in 8:01.4 to
tie for second, well behind
Maclay from Tallahassee,
which won easily in 7:45.7.
The performance of the
Stewart/Schmidt combina-
tion qualified them for an
invitation to Cincinnati.
Abby Sierigk started out
well in her singles race but
slowly slowly lost ground
from the 1000-meter mark
and had to settle for fifth. It
was a good performance that
held out some promise for
next season.

'SURF's up when local


water rescue is needed


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Police activity at the South
Jerry recently had a few peo-
ple scratching their heads.
"It was a drill for the SURF
(Sarasota Underwater Rescue
Force) Team and our marine
unit," Sarasota County Sher-
iff's Lt. Chuck Lesaltato said.
"It's to see how effectively
they can coordinate their op-
erations."
The Sheriff's Underwater
Recovery Force was estab-
lished to respond to and take
appropriate action in under-
water emergencies, crime
scenes, body recoveries and
other water-related incidents.
The Venice Police Depart-
ment Marine Unit and the
Venice Fire Department Ma-
rine Rescue Unit also partici-
pated in the drill.
Worst case
Lesaltato said the training
exercise was a "worst-case
scenario" drill.
"We had two' divers in the
water. One got shot with a
spear gun," he said. "The
other surfaced too fast and,
got the bends (one form of
decompression sickness)."'
The southwest quadrant of
the jetty in back of the villas
was cordoned off with yellow


police tape for a staging area,
That area is usually used by
surfers for parking.
The main attraction for
divers at the South Jetty is a
shallow reef about 500 yards
offshore.
The prospect of finding
sharks' teeth also lures
SCUBA divers from around
the world.
About SURF
The team consists of eight
divers and several training
positions. The team members
are required to meet strict
guidelines and attend regular
training sessions.
Each diver is fully equip-
ped with high-tech dive
equipment such as dry suits,
AGA masks (full-face SCUBA
masks) and under-water com-
munications gear, all of which
is necessary to protect them
from the hazards of contami-
nated water.
In addition to regular train-
ing drills, members of the
SURF Team participate in an
annual drill with members of
the Sarasota Police Depart-
ment.

PHOTO COURTESY OF JOHN VIDAS SUN PHOTO BY SUSAN CAIR
John Vidas is careful when he walks his dog on his property in the Lakes of Jacaranda. A family Finding an armadillo home in your yard isn't the end of the world. There are many methods of
of otters, a mother and cubs, live in the lake behind his house. moving the armadillo off your property without harming it.


What s in


your back yard?


Alligators and snakes are not the only wildlife you
have to keep an eye out for in Florida. When you
open your door, you may find a lot more awaits
you.


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFFWRITER

John Vidas got a surprise
recently when he saw a fami-
ly of otters living in the pre-
serve behind hisVenice house
in the Lakes of Jacaranda.
"I saw something move in
the brush and thought it was
an alligator," he said.
Vidas took his cocker
spaniel in the house for fear
of an alligator attack. He did
not know that otters pose the
same risk.
A Florida otter attacked
and killed a dog in the Tampa
area in 2001. Cute and shy,
Florida otters are fast in the
water, and they can hold their
breath for up to eight min-
utes. They also become ag-
gressive if they are fed by
humans.
"There was a mother and
two little cubs feeding on the
reef. The mother looked
about 20 pounds," Vidas said.
Since Vidas' dog weighs
only 25 pounds, he has decid-
ed to pay careful attention to
where his dog wanders when


going out into the backyard.
"The mother looked very
protective," he said.
Living on a preserve, Vidas
has seen a panther, bobcat,
wild hogs and turkeys on the
property.
"This is the first time I ever
saw an otter in the lake
behind the house," he said.
Florida otters
Florida otters are irre-
sistible to look at, but they are
still wild animals and should
not be fed.
"Otters are rambunctious
creatures that frequently
change locations within their
territory. They are fascinating
to watch," said Gary Morse, of
Florida Fish and Wildlife.
"Generally, otters pose lit-
tle threat to pets unless the
pet wants to try and take one
on which is an unwise
move," he said.
Adult otters are capable of
defending themselves against
most predators. They are
extremely quick and are ex-
cellent swimmers, hence
their common name, river


otter.
Found throughout Florida
except in the Keys, they are
primarily fish eaters and can
grow to about 40 pounds and
4 feet in length.
"They are quite active, and
as long as they are not fed,
they are a joy to watch,"
Morse said. ,
Armadillos
Trying to get an armadillo
to leave your lawn alone may
be an endless task..
When searching for insects
and grubs to eat, they can dig
up a lot of dirt looking for
their evening meals.
One option is to build a
fence around your yard, ex-
tending it a foot into the
ground. This is the only sure-
'fire way to avoid an armadillo
burrowing into your property.
They have a sensitive nose.
The armadillo's olfactory
bulbs the part of the brain
that detects odor is about
one-third the size of their
cerebrum, the part of the
brain used for thought, learn-
ing and memory. Anything
with a strong, noxious odor
can help evict an armadillo
from a den. Mothballs have
been used successfully.
"I tried the mothballs,"
said Jerry Green of Venice.
"They didn't work."


Green then blocked the
entrance of the hole where he
thought the armadillo was
digging.
To avoid trapping an ani-
mal underground, fill the
entrance loosely with dirt and
check to see whether the hole
has been disturbed.
If the burrow has not been
disturbed, you can fill the
hole with a mixture of earth
and gravel making it hard-
er to reopen.
Green's attempt to fill the
hole didn't work either. His
next step is to flood the hole.
Armadillos are not territor-
ial, and once they are re-
moved, they can just dig up a
neighbor's yard the next day.
They roam looking for food. If
their holes are not covered,
other armadillos will use
them.
Armadillos are not always
bad for your lawn. They keep
insects and other pest levels
down by eating them. This is a
better method than chemi-
cals for removal. Also, the dig-
ging aerates the roots of
plants, encouraging growth.

Do the Time Warp at Venice Little Theatre show


KIM COOL


Oh horrors!
"Rocky Horror" opens in.
the Venice Little Theatre's
Pinkerton Theatre, home of
Stage II productions, on May
25. The stage version of the
cult film classic stars Brad
Wages as scientist Dr. Frank-
N-Furter, who was portrayed
by Tim Curry. Those few who
missed the screen version
missed one of the earliest film


performances of Susan
Sarandon (as JanetWeiss) and
Barry Bostwick (as Brad
Majors, a hero) with Richard
,O'Brien as RiffRaff, Patricia
Quinn as Magenta and Meat
Loaf as Eddie (ex-delivery,
boy).
If you are members of "the
cult," leave your water pistols
and rice at home, please, but
do bring copies of the
Cleveland Plain Dealer if you
have it and feel free to dress as
xotu favorite character (if you
dare!). The \IT will sell pack-
ages of those thifigs cultists
need to really enjoy the show.
If you have never seen
"Rocky Horror," prepare to be
part of a happening event in
Venice. You may want to ask
around for lessons in the
Time Warp before you head to
the theater.
TheVLT is located at 140W.
Tampa Ave. For tickets, which


will be sold out soon if they
are not already, call the box
office at 488-1115.
Ella lives
One of the best of the great
theatrical productions being
performed in the area is "Ella"
in the NMertz Theatre at the
FSU Center for the Perform-
ing Arts in Sarasota. Copro-
duced with Arizona Theatre
Company. the Cleveland
Playhouse and San Jose Rep,
this show is more than a trib-
ute to the late Ella Fitzgerald.
Tina Fabrique is fabulous as
Ella. With Brian Sledge on
trumpet and doing one heck
of a tribute to Louis "Satch-
mo" Armstrong, plus pianist
George Caldwell, bass player
Clifton Kellam, drummer
Rodney Harper and Harold
Dixon as Ella's longtime man-
ager Norman Granz, the As-
olo Repertory Company has


yet another hit on its hands.
This is the kind of show that
reiewvers refer to as "Boffo." It
is all that and more. The FSU
Center is located at 5555
North Tamiami Trail, Sara-
spota, where "Ella" will play
through June 10. For tickets,
call the box office at 351-8000
or visit asolo.org.
Freebie
In conjunction with "Ella,"
-there will be a free playtalk
with the actors about 4 p.m.,
after ihe 2 p.m. Sunday, May
27, performance. That is a
great time to learn about the
production process and talk
with cast members. For infor-
mation or to order tickets for
that show (not required), call
351-8000.
Echo
Some things are worth re-
peating and the continuing


need for drivers for Meals on
Wheels is one of those. I
wrote about it May 2. For
those who missed that col-
umn or who were going to
volunteer but misplaced the
phone numbers, here's the
information again:
lMeals on Wheels, located
at Village On The Isle in
Venice, needs drivers to help
deliver noon-time meals to
the homebound on 14 routes
in the greater Venice area.
Meals onWheels delivers 150-
160 meals a day, which takes
84 drivers every week. The
need is especially great in the
summer months when the
seasonal helpers have re-
turned north or leave for long
vacations while those in need
of the meals remain.
Meals are ready for pick-
up by 10:30 a.m. Monday
through Saturday. Delivery
takes about 90 minutes to two


hours, just one day per week.
Equally important to the
Meals on Wheels clients is the
interaction with the delivery
person, for that person may
be the only visitor they have
that day. I have spoken with
people on both ends the
recipients and the volunteers.
Both have heart-warming
stories to tell, but the main
thing is everyday that some-
one is served is one more day
that person will eat a hot meal
and also have the mental
stimulation of interaction
with another person.
That is a real win-win.
Also needed is office help,
8-11 a.m. one day a week. ,
If you can help, even if only
for the summer months, call
Peggy Gurney at 492-9424 or
call the Meals on Wheels
office at 488-1889.

STAFF ESCRITOR
Ecineville is making news.
Throughout the state, the
music scene "in people" are
talking about your town.
Our fair city has had some
jammin' groups appearing at
local bars in recent weeks.
(The "jammin' local bars
are the ones that stay open
past 9 p.m.)
But if you thought we'd all
been jammin' in the past,
wait until you hear what is
going to go down this week-
end in the music scene, right
here in OUR FAIR CITY,
ECINEVILLE.


The are you ready? -
"The Charrettes."
Wo, wo, wo, wo,WOOOO!!
The Charrettes can you
believe it?
The hottest group in the
country, baby, right here in
Ecineville this weekend, at
Hannigan's Bar.
The Charrettes' style is
energy, fast-paced,, high en-
ergy.
From the moment they
appear on stage and play
that first chord, they just
overwhelm you with their
melodic yet pounding rhy-
thm until you are just stomp-
ing your feet to their beat and
on board with their music.


Rap it
(Isn't that our first sub-
head in "And Now... The
News from Ecineville"?
Well, yes it is.
Are you keeping track of
this stuff?
Well, yes I am.
Why?
I'm not sure, but it seems
like it might be important.
Really?
Maybe.)
And now I'm supposed to
remember why I typed "Rap
it" and what comes next?
Well, you're writing the
#$@# column, not me.
I was wondering, do you
think they're keeping up?


A small group are. Some
are disgusted and the rest
just think you're crazy.
Oh, hey, I remember what
comes after the subhead
"Rap it."
Rap it
In addition to The Char-
rettes, we are just blessed,
that's right, blessed to have
this same weekend appear-
ing at the Buckeye Bar in
Yerpso the rap group, Spadia.
I know, I can hardly con-
tain myself.
The hottest, sizzlin' rap
group in the country today.
Right up the road in Yerp-
so.

JOE GIORGIANNI
I !M (R COLUMNIST


In India, when a train quits
running, for whatever reason,
the passengers disembark
and push the train to the next
station. They know that if they
do nothing, the train will sim-
ply sit in the middle of
nowhere and they will be
hung out to dry, so to speak-
like not getting to where they
want to be.
I use this as a metaphor to
explain our current situation
in Iraq. OK, so it ain't funny. I
can't be funny all the time
with the country sinking into
the pits of hell.
For God's sake, when are
we, the American people,
going to stand up and say that
enough is enough? More than
70 percent of the people in
this country think that the
Iraq scenario has been played
out. More than 70 percent of
the people who make this


country great are simply tired
of supporting a cause that a
single and small group thinks
is a great idea. For what? For
whom?
I wasn't there, but I would
bet that when Noah' built his
boat, there were a few guys
who might have stood
around saying that he, Noah,
had a bad idea about building
this odd-looking thing. On
the other hand, there were
more than a few guys who
said that the Titanic could
never sink.
The Hindenberg was sup-
posed to cross the Atlantic
with no problems. Chernobyl
was declared a safe nuclear
reactor. Baghdad was sup-
posed to be a "slam dunk."
"Shock and awe" was the
description given to how we
would handle the bad people
in Iraq. Yeah, right tell that
to the thousands who have
lost their lives or limbs
because there were certain
pundits who declared them-
selves experts on these sub-
jects, and proceeded in spite
of public opinion, safety fac-
tors, and shared thoughts, all
because of the almighty dol-
lar generated by oil.
OK, I don't get into this
much, but I'm wondering if
there really is a light at the
end of the tunnel. Four years
ago, there were numerous


countries 48 to be exact -
that signed on to help .with
this fight for democracy.
Today, there are fewer than 23
countries, most with only a
nominal amount of person-
nel, who are supporting this
attempt to democratize the
Middle East.
We, the United States, in
the name of what used to be
democracy, are sacrificing
many for the benefit of a few.
Lee Iacocca has a great
new book out titled, "Where
Have All The Leaders Gone?"
In his book, Mr. Iacocca, like
him or not, has. expressed
ideas that would and could
only benefit those who might
follow the wisdom of this wise
man.
His profound thinking
leads us to question such
things as why we still have an.
embargo on Cuba. It's only
been 42 years. Yet we spend
seven times more money
with China, a communist
country, than China spends
with us. The key to the Cuban
question, of course, is it satis-
fies the Cuban-American vot-
ing bloc that controls South
Florida.
He, Mr. Iacocca, raised the
question of how this, the
greatest nation on the face of
the planet, has gone from
what we were determined to
do from the outset of our


Constitution to. the point we
now find ourselves. Not so
much how, but why we have
gone from a nation, one
under God, to one that dis-
plays dominance, arrogance
and fanaticism.
Have we, the American
people, fallen to the level that
we will allow the will of a few
to dominate the future of so
many? If so, then we have
become not a nation deter-
mined to be free, but rather a
nation willing to be con-.
trolled. Controlled by those
who put the value of life
beneath that of wealth.
So, this is not one of my
usual, side-splitting, laugh-
till-it-hurts columns. But at
least I hope it has made you
think. That it has made you
curious about why we are
being led down the path of no
return.
If so, then, sacrificing hu-
mor for the sake of getting a
point'across has been worth
it. And together we can, and
should, tell those select few
that we have had enough.
After all, it is our country.
-. At least, it used to be.

My future is ...

unlimited


Alyssa Hunek, Charles Ch-
ocallo, Rebecca Reale, Jesse
Martin, Ellen O'Connell,
Johnny Albu, Tiffany Miller,
Heather Jones and Ethan
Dudley received scholarships
from the Cecilian Music So-
ciety totaling $7,300. The mu-
sicians transformed the meet-
ing room at the Venice Public
Library into a concert hall as
they performed.
Hunek sang "My future is
unlimited," perhaps a predic-
tion for the future of the tal-
ented students in the room.
In addition to awards from
the Cecilian Music Society,
14-year-old violinist Rebecca
Reale and 18-year-old pianist
Charles Chocallo received
additional money from the
Thelma Miller Cohn Music
Scholarship.
Thelma Cohn and Patricia
Prentzel accompanied sever-
al soloists. Chandelle La-
Forest accompanied her son,
Ethan Dudley.
Albu was unable to per-
form because of a previous
commitment.
Proud parents Jesse and
Heather Martin videotaped
as their son, Jesse Martin,
sang. Bob Hunek videotaped
his daughter, Alyssa, and
b snapped photos at the same
time. Venice Elementary
School music teacher Rob-
erta Reale proudly sat back
and watched as her daughter,
Rebecca, played a violin solo.
Richard Thierry and
Edward Higbee judged the
scholarship winners. Some of
the criteria used were phras-
ing, tonality, stage presence
and musicality. Sandra We-
rrell, scholarship chairman
for the committee, said 13
students applied for the scho-
larships.
The Cecilian Music Society
is dedicated to the encour-
agement of fine music in our
community. It raises funds
through its annual showcase
and from donations. Anyone
interested in joining the
group may call Joan Appel at
485-6548.
One of our best
The special person of this
week is Charles Chocallo. He
graduates from Pineview this
year. Chocallo has been stud-
ying music for 14 years. Just
this year he has performed in
concert at Temple Beth Israel
on Longboat Key, at the
Venice Art Center, in Kamm-
ermusik, Atlanta, in West
Coast Symphony's Holly Hall
and in the Cecilian Music
Showcase. He was featured on
a CNN television special on
young, gifted musicians.
Chocallo accompanied se-
veral musicians at the soci-
ety's program in addition to
performing his own music.
He represents many fine
young musicians in the area
who manage to juggle their
time and talents. It is an ho-
nor to know them and enjoy
their music.
Charles Chocallo is one of
the student musicians in
Venice who help make this
town great.
