220,000 square feet of of-

rants and hotel-like assisted
living facilities within a 220-
acre site on State Road 681
in Nokomis is expected to
move a step closer early next
week.
Village on the Trail, the
$800 million project con-
ceived by developer Henry
Rodriguez, was cited last
year by the American Plan-
ning Association as "an ex-
emplary example of 'smart
growth.' The complex will
connect the existing com-
munities of Sorrento East,
Lake Village, Mission Valley
Estates and Spanish Lakes

town center by a system of
internal roads.
This is expected to re-


duce the use of U.S. 41 and
S.R. 681 by the more than
3,500 residents of those
communities.

Venice's new employee incentive program, effective June 1, is called the BUS Bravo for Ultimate Service and will feature
four levels of awards that may be given out to deserving employees. Shown here is the BUS Token, a heavy, metal coin-like
award with a picture of a bus on one side and a star insignia on the other.

STAFF WRITER

Have a great experience with a city employee? After June 1, call
Public Information Officer Pam Johnson, at 486-2626, Ext. 2003.
More information about the BUS Program will soon be available
on the city's Web site, venicegov.com.


making presentations to both
employees and supervisors in
all the city departments to
acquaint them with the
details of the program's pur-
pose and procedures.
Now they want the public
to be fully familiar with the
program, in order to appreci-
ate the effort required on the
part of the employees who
benefit from it, and to inform
the city when they observe,
someone who should be con-
sidered for an award.
P.R.I.D.E.
The new system of perfor-


mance awards is based on an
initiative created during the
city's strategic planning ses-
sions in 2005. The acronym
PRIDE (Productive, Respons-
ible, Initiative, Dedicated and
Ethical) was chosen by the
mayor and council to reflect
the city's core values regard-
ing customer service and em-
ployee performance.
The BUS Program is de-
signed to replace programs
not consistently administer-
ed in the past, or that had rel-
atively minor awards. Council
has set aside $10,000 as a line
item in the administrative


services budget for first-year
awards, which department
directors are not eligible for.
There are four progressive
levels of awards:
BUS Tokens small,
coin-like tokens of imnunediate
recognitionri by a supervisor or
manager. These are designed
for easy distribution to em-
ployees on the spot, or at
departmental meetings, for a
specific act or event involving
observed performance be-
yond normal expectations.
"Tokens will not be given
for just doing an assignment
or job well," said Heath. "That
should be the norm for each
employee. But they will be
given for exceeding normal
expectations, whether it's
something observed by a
supervisor, a fellow employee

L That's the name of the new
4 employee incentive program
that will be implemented

The Lucky Dog Diner
may open soon; Anita's
Sandcastle is still await-
ing a review by the city
attorney.

BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER

"Opening Soon" is what
the sign in the north window
says.
But the Lucky Dog Diner
has several steps to complete
before it will be ready for cus-
tomers.
The brother-sister team of
Alan, Laskowski and Dawn
Surak has been busy working
on both the exterior and the
interior of the old diner locat-
ed almost directly in front of
the Venice Regional Medical
Center.
"The restrooms have been
repaired and made service-
able," said Laskowski, "and
the interior fixtures, refrigera-
tion and cooking equipment
are all hooked up and ready to
go.
"Now we're waiting for the
health inspector to come," he
said, "and for the fire inspec-
tor to issue his report. We
have filed an application for a
beer and wine license, and
just have a couple of other
loose ends to complete."
Once those items have
been checked off their to-do
list, they will seek a certificate
of occupancy from the city.
The diner has been out of
business for about three
years. Surak plans to reopen it
serving breakfasts and lunch-
es with a varied menu.
Laskowski, who owns the
Kingfish Caf6 across the
street, is not concerned about
the friendly competition.

FROM SARASOTA COUNTY
The Sarasota County Com-
mission has endorsed a plan
to build a roundabout at the
intersection ofJacaranda Boul-
evard and East Venice Avenue.
The proposed roundabout
is an alternative to the stan-
dard signalized intersection.
It is smaller than a traffic cir-
cle with reduced speeds
around a center island.
A roundabout typically
costs less than a signalized
intersection, but still provides
the capacity needed for future
growth in the area.
At the commission's May
25 meeting, roundabout ex-
pert Michael Wallwork of
Alternate Street Design PA.
told commissioners that
roundabouts are usually the
safest and most efficient way
for traffic to get through an
intersection. The roundabout
is expected to provide a
smoother flow of traffic
through the area and be safer
than a standard signalized
intersection.
Wallwork said the round-
about, which has a typical
speed limit of 15-20 mph, will
keep traffic moving through
the intersection at a "more
continual rate," as compared
to a standard intersection
with up to 22 lanes of traffic
being affected by traffic signal
delays.
District 3 Commissioner
Shannon Staub said the cen-
ter island of the roundabout
can also serve as a gateway to
Venice.
The roundabout is expect-
ed to require less land for con-
struction, meaning a lower
price tag for the project, de-
creased maintenance costs
and reduced impacts to sur-
rounding properties.
It is estimated that the pro-
ject will cost $3 million less by
using a roundabout design
instead of a typical signalized


intersection.
The proposed roundabout
will require a series of public
hearings before it receives
final board approval. A public
meeting also will be sched-
uled in the upcoming months


4.-















1~


as the design for the project
proceeds.
Construction could begin
as early as May 2008, with
work expected to take about
one year.
Intersection improvements


are needed at Jacaranda Boul-
evard and Venice Avenue as
the area develops. More than
43,000 vehicles travel through
the intersection each day.
For more information, call
861-5000.

Theatre gives play proper ending


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

When a fire alarm sounded
at the Venice Little Theatre
Thursday evening, patrons in
the main stage area missed
the ending of "Over the Tav-
ern."
Because the play closed
May 27, the VLT has provided
the last lines for its patrons:

CHET: Rudy, wait.

(RUDY stops) (

CHET: If there's no hell, then
what does God do with all the


people who sin?

RUDY: Dad, remember that
time Father Camillus told us
not to watch Elvis Presley on
Ed Sullivan? 'Cause he, was
evil and we'd. all go straight to
hell? So we watched. You were
snapping your fingers. Annie
and Eddie were singing. Mom
was dancing with Georgie.
And when Elvis was done, Ed
says, "Let's hear it for this fine,
fine youngster!" So, I just
think God could learn a few
things from Ed Sullivan.

CHET: I'm going with you to
Father Mike's. One of you is


going to come out converted.
I want to see which one!

(They exit, CHET closing the
door behind them.)

(THE CURTAIN FALLS).

As reported in the May 27
Gondolier Sun, the alarm was
set off by smoke from a fog
machine being used for "The
Rocky Horror Show" in the
VLT's Yvonne T. Pinkerton
Theatre.

A May 3 Convocation of
Governments will incltide
representatives from Sij rajsoti
County; the cities of Venice,
North Port and Sarasota; the
town of Longboat Key; and
the Sarasota County School
Board will be present.
The main purpose of the
governments coming togeth-
er at this session is to discuss
the future needs of the school
district based on the growth
of Sarasota County, and to
come to an agreement on a
school concurrency docu-
ment.
. The school concurrency
document is intended to
coordinate the development,
adoption and amendment of
the Sarasota County School
Board's Five-Year Capital
Facilities Plan.
It also address public
school facility needs, inter-
governmental coordination
and the capital improve-
ments elements of the county
and cities' comprehensive
plans, in order to implement
a uniform districtwide school
concurrency system.
Does it help?
Sarasota County School
Board member Caroline
Zucker said this meeting is an
opportunity to finally ap-
prove and enter into an
agreement to follow the
state's concurrency laws.
According to Zucker, there
are still some line items not
everyone has agreed on.


ZBO


It's hard
enough to get
each munici-
pality to agree
on an individ- ,
ual document, '
let alone all of
them to sign
off on one,
Zucker said. Zucker
"It would
be nice to
come away
with a final .i
document ev- "
eryone could -
agree on," she,
said.
Venice May-
or Fred Ham-
mett said he
anticipates Hammett
the meeting
will be a posi-
tive one.
"One of the biggest issues
that occurs between govern-
ing bodies is communica-
tion," he said.
Hammett said the meet-
ings of all of the governments
began about three years ago
and are absolutely a help.
Previously the county
would approve 500 new
homes and not tell the school
district what it should expect,
he said. This kind of issue is
addressed at Convocation of
Governments meetings.
"I think the system is actu-
ally working," Hammett said.
Meeting the needs
Zucker said she remem-
bered when the governments
would meet with each other
one at a time.


Correction
Garden Elementary School's
FCAT scores were omitted
from a story in the May 27
edition. The school showed
significant improvement in
almost all grades in all sub-
jects. The Gondolier Sun re-
grets the omission.

where they are coming from,
Zucker said.
As for her hopes for the
Thursday meeting, Zucker
said she wants to make pro-
gress building
schools and
meeting the i

Receiving five such tokens
entitles an employee to a $25
cash award.
BUS Passes these certifi-
cates of appreciation, plus a
$50 cash award, will be given by
department directors for an
employee's established pattern
of initiative or exemplary
behavior.
"Passes are intended to rec-
ognize those who establish a
new level of excellence in the
way they perform their work,"
said Stelzer. "Whether it's by
consistent performance, or by
a suggestion of how to do
things better, the impact of
their influence must be signifi-
cant to their work group, divi-
sion or department, or possibly
to the entire city organization
or the community as a whole."
City Manager's PRIDE
Award anyone who has
received a BUS Pass can be
considered bythe city manager
for this award, which would
include not only a certificate of
recognition presented at a city
council meeting, but also the
choice of a cash award of $250
or 16 hours' time off with pay.
Mayor & City Council
PRIDE Award recipients of
the City Manager's PRIDE
Award will be considered for
these awards by the mayor and
council at the end of each year.
"Award winners," said
Heath, "will receive an acrylic
recognition plaque, plus a
$1,000 cash award, based on
their significant impact on the
organization or community by
reflecting the PRIDE elements
in their performance through-
out the year."

Worth it?
Since Venice is considering
cost-cutting measures in antic-
ipation of possible tax-reform
legislation, it is natural to ask
whether it can afford a pro-
gram like this.
"Based on the experience of
other agencies where pro-
grams like this have been initi-
ated," said Stelzer, "the BUS
awards program should pay for
itself in a short time each year
as employee performance
improves, and as their ideas
and suggestions result in cost
savings to the city.
"This has already been
demonstrated in the utilities
department," she said. "The
OMI Optimization Program
awarded several thousand dol-
lars to participating employees
this past year, but the ideas of
employees resulted in much
more than that in savings to the
city. That program will contin-
ue as part of the OMI contract."
"This is a work in progress,"
Heath said. "We are also open
to comments and suggestions
about the program and how it
might be improved."
.With the BUS Program
being set up on a calendar-year
basis, however, the first "year"
will be only seven months long
(June through December).
"We believe we have high-
quality employees," said Heath.
"Even though this first year is
shortened, we expect many
will be given awards of tokens
and passes in the first few
months.
"By the end of the year we
hope to be able to give out a
number of PRIDE awards for
the various possible categories
of performance."

clientele. I'm sure they will
compliment each other."
Anita's Sandcastle
The future of the hot dog
stand at Humphris Park, adja-
cent to the south jetty, is still
uncertain.
As previously reported in
the Venice Gondolier Sun,
even though Anita's Sand-
castle has been in business
there for four years, the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers
notified the city in December


2006 it wanted the restaurant
moved. It said the little snack
bar was located on right of
way needed "for construc-
tion, maintenance or enlarge-
ment" of the jetty seawall.
A second letter from the
Corps in February reasserted
its position, claiming that,
although the city had re-
ceived a permit for installa-
tion of the facility, it had not
obtained the "approval for
construction" on the federal
government's easement.

offices in the commercial
portion of the community.
Walking distances
A hotel-like building de-
signed as "light assisted liv-
ing" is planned, together with
a day care center, clubhouse
and a church in the town cen-
ter. Those facilities, along
with restaurants, stores and
professional offices, will be
within comfortable walking
distances for residents, ac-
cording to Rodriguez.
"Older residents may pre-
fer not to drive anywhere,"
Rodriguez said. "The assisted
living center will enable them
to order in meals."
Vehicular traffic on S.R. 681
will be controlled by synchro-
nized lights a mile apart, at
Honore Road, to be extended
south to Laurel Road; the
entrance to Village on the
Trail; and midway between I-
75 and U.S. 41. They are con-
nected by 681. Right-turn


City Attorney Bob Ander-
son said all the correspon-
dence and paperwork involv-
ed in that transaction is ready
for his review, after which he
will issue a response to the
Corps' Real Estate Division.
Until that time, however, he
will not be able to comment
on the position the city will be
taking.


lanes are planned from the
Village, Palmer Ranch, across
681 on the north side and at
Honore.
A study commissioned by
the Tampa Bay Regional
Planning Council projected
the creation of 1,767 con-
struction jobs through 2013,
when the project should be
completed, and 349 addition-
al long-term jobs. It estimated
they would provide $454 mil-
lion in economic develop-
ment funds to the county.
Area support for the pro-
ject has been almost unani-
mous, according to Rod-
riguez. He met with 24 civic
and homeowners associa-
tions during the past 14
months to get their opinions
about his plans.
"It's no wonder that the pro-
posal has so much support,"
said Sandra Sims Terry, execu-
tive director of the Laurel Civic
Association. "It will divert traffic
from U.S. 41 and enhance the
safety of residents on both
sides of the highway."


Meanwhile, loyal patrons
of Anita's Sandcastle have
started a petition in support
of owner Anita Deans. They
want her to either be able to
stay where she is, or at least
not have to pay the expenses
if her facility has to be moved
to another spot in the Hum-
phris Park area.

VENICE GONDOLIER SUN 5A


Hands on the wheel, please


Multi-tasking. Last Satur-
day, the driver of a red Honda
car was observed taking mul-
ti-tasking to the extreme.
While on 41 waiting for a traf-
fic light, the driver was talking
on a hand-held cell phone
while eating a rather large
sandwich with the other
hand. When the light chang-
ed, the driver actually at-
tempted to make a left turn
going south on 41 toward Os-
prey, with her elbows. Thank
goodness the driver realized
that this wasn't going to work.
It appeared the sandwich was
temporarily abandoned, put
down somewhere next to her,
till the turn was completed.
Sandwiches should be put
down forever while driving
vehicles.
Top secret. The best kept
secret is our watering restric-
tions. The state of Florida is
on fire, yet we keep this secret
to ourselves. We don't want
anyone to know that there are
watering restrictions; other-
wise, all those people that
water throughout the city and
county when the spirit moves
them will just continue to
water whenever they want to.
We have water restrictions
and the newspaper has a re-
sponsibility to tell the people
what they are, and continue
to distribute that information
on a regular basis. Get with it,
newspapers!
Waste. I'm a Sarasota Coun-
ty employee and I share my
office with, about 10 other
people with an office by 25
feet by 25 feet. I've been in
offices where the office for
one person is that big or big-
ger. Seems like there's a lot of
waste going on in the county.
As usual, they pick on the
small guy like myself. They
have way too much lighting.
I'm from a state that ran out of
electricity every summer when
people used air conditioning,
and it was just normal to have
one or two fluorescent lighEs
in,a fixture that would hold'"
four or five. That's something
you don't see in the county.
They have every light bulb on,
using and wasting electricity.
It seems like when they start
making these budget cuts,
they should pick on the right
issues and the right people,
not the little guy who's doing
all the work.
Tax more things. Instead of
raising the sales tax, has any-
one thought of doing as the
state of Maine does and tax-
ing nonessential food items?
Maine charges taxes on cook-
ies, candy, ice cream and chips.
If Florida did that, would it
bring in enough money to off-
set property tax cuts?
Entitlement. I don't always
agree with Mary Kay Ruppel's
column but I do think that her
column about the high school
girl who seems to think she
needs a golf cart to get around
school is absolutely on target.
It's gotten ridiculous, the
sense of entitlement that
young people have today. I
had a bad back and I man-
aged to scoot around my
house for four or five months
on a desk chair with casters.
This girl could sit on a desk
chair, hold her leg out in front
of her and move around by
using the other leg. And the
mother, of course, is clamor-
ing for special treatment for
the daughter. I' mean, where
are we going to end up with all
these spoiled-rotten kids who
can't cope? Can't cope with
adversity, can't cope with add-
ing, subtracting, multiplying
and dividing. Can't cope with
excessive homework. Can't
cope with anything, and prob-
ably will sit around on welfare
as adults, thinking that society
owes them a salary.
Long time. Has anyone no-
ticed that the parking lot pro-
ject next to Sharky's is taking
an inordinate amount of
time? I went by there at 2 p.m.
A worker was fixing his truck
and two others were lying
down. Your tax dollars at work
in Venice.


Same feelings. This is to
Mary Kay Ruppel and that
wonderful column she wrote.
I'm saying, "Kudos!" to Mary
Kay Ruppel. You hit the nail
on the head in reference to


the lOth-grade girl who broke
her ankle while playing soft-
ball and believes, as does her
mother, that she needs a golf
cart at school so she can get to
her classes. The doctor was
certainly trying to help her,
but where did she and her


mother get the idea that the
school should provide the
wherewithal? Are we a little
bit spoiled? Poor old dad. He
must be very weary providing
everything their little hearts'
desire, or is he part of the
problem too? I've raised very re-


sponsible, independent chil-
dren who have graduated
from universities by working
every summer, plus getting
grants and loans to take care
of themselves to get their
desired education. You're not
hard-hearted, Hannah, Ms.
Ruppel. My feelings are exact-
ly like yours.
Cut short. You've asked
callers to be brief. But how


brief? Why don't you give peo-
ple a time limit they can fol-
low so they can get it all in?
Shady. It seems to be one.
of the common threads of
problems in Sarasota and
Venice that when there's a
problem with property, things
seem to be shady. I'm glad to
see in your newspaper that
with all ,those lots that were
. auctioned off and defaulted

on, they're going to look into
court costs, saying it's the
principle of the thing, even if
they don't make any money

action to take because too
many think they'll get away

OUR VIEW




More are giving up than giving back


A small article in The Tampa Tribune
recently disclosed that the Kiwanis
Club of Palma Ceia-Westshore will
hold its last meeting this week.
Its membership has declined from an all-
time high of 75 members to six. The current
president, at the age of 73, has been presi-
dent five times. The club just can't attract
new members.
The club was chartered in 1948. Forty
years ago, it built the Palma Ceia play-
ground. Since then, it has built other play-
grounds, bought ribbons and other awards
for 4-H Clubs, provided picnic tables for
Joshua House and created a Terrific Kids
recognition program at an elementary
school.
If this club's problems were unique, it
would be nothing more than an interesting


commentary on a service club in a pic-
turesque area of Tampa.
Sadly, that is not the case.
Community service often through a
service club once was widely considered
to be an obligation that went with the privi-
lege of managing a business in a communi-
ty. Some employers even paid the dues, and
others gave time off to participate in com-
munity service projects.
More important, those men and women
who enjoyed the privilege of holding posi-
tions of leadership in community business-
es (typically, though not always, the criteria
for membership) felt that they owed their
community a commitment of time and
effort outside of their management obliga-
tions.
Today, that culture of service is fading ...


not gone, but fading.
More and more businesses encourage a
"lunch-at-your-desk" culture among man-
agers, discouraging their venturing out into
the community to make it a better place to
live.
This trend has been partially offset by (1)
the growing number of women and minori-
ties in management positions and (2) the
growing number of previously all-male ser-
vice clubs that now open their, doors to
women and minorities. Rotary, Lions,
Kiwanis and other organizations are no
longer "good old boy" clubs, or organiza-
tions of "rich, middle-aged white guys."
Some previously all-female service clubs
have opened their membership rosters to
men, as well.
The international nature of many service


clubs extends the realm of service beyond
the community.Whether it is discarded eye-
glasses being distributed in countries with
few optometrists or inoculation against
polio and other immunization preventable.
diseases in Third World countries, service
clubs spread good will and international
understanding around the globe. Some-
times this non-political network can be
more successful than governmental and
diplomatic initiatives.
The Palma Ceia-Westshore neighbor-
hood of Tampa will be just a bit poorer as its
Kiwanis Club fades into history.
We wish there would be a return to the
management paradigm that encouraged -
even expected business leaders to invest
some of their time and effort in community
service through service clubs.


Let's boast a little


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


Now that our high school
baseball team has won the
state championship, I think it
might just be a good time to
show our pride in our school
and the talent of the youth
and coaches.
- One way we will do that
will be at the Hall of Fame
dinner held at Bogey's on
June 7. This dinner, catered by
sister restaurant The Crow's
Nest, will pay tribute to Terry
Tritschler, longtime Little
League fixture; Edgar Gay,
longtime area sports stand-
out; and the 1998 state cham-
pionship volleyball team.
If you are interested in
attending, call Kim Kindell at
Rotary Futures, 480-3178.
Ticket price is $60.
The volleyball team won
the first state championship
of four for Venice High in the
last 10 years. I would like to
see at the entrance to Venice
around the city. sign an addi-
tional sign that says: Home of
the Volleyball, Football and
Baseball State Champions.
This would be a nice trib-
ute to the honor they have
brought the city, and might
encourage the other great
teams we have to be the best
in the state. It is easy to
believe that wrestling, girls
softball, golf (both girls and
boys) and even the exciting
basketball teams could join
this status.
Incidentally, the state high
school athletic authority has,
in its infinite wisdom, decid-
ed to fine Venice High $2,500
for having a couple of dozen
fans run onto the field after
the baseball championship
game.
It was interesting that no
one I spoke to heard the
announcement usually made
to stay off the field. It was
made, apparently, but the
sound system did not reach
many areas well and it was
not a stand-alone message.
On top of that, while
authority staff told the staff of
Venice High they are respon-
sible for their kids, they would
not allow them access to the
field to help bolster the group
of officials trying to stop such
a swarm.
Most of the people the
association had were bunch-
ed near the dugout area, for-
getting about the outfield
area.


The wonderful thing was
that the coaches of Venice
High immediately got the
kids to leave the field. There
were no prolonged celebra-
tions by the fans, no injuries
and no damage.
Don't tarnish a great event.
Send a letter of reprimand
and let it be.
******

By's Crack: There is no
substitute for education.
My son can tell me in six
different languages why
he can't find a job.

It is interesting that the city
is looking at charging fees for
fire service. For a long time
cities said their main job was
to provide safety, and that is
the reason for taxes. I guess
the city is worrying that there
will not be enough money left
to pay for this service.
Can you imagine service
fees for police, and the
archives, and fireworks, and
to pay city council benefits
and maybe even for the
Christmas parade?
When they put a tax on tea,
it will be time to revolt.

Speaking of taxes, don't
forget the sales-tax-free holi-
day for hurricane supplies
going on through the 12th.

Inc. Magazine has named
Sarasota/Bradenton/Venice
the No. 3 fastest-growing
mid-size business boomtown
in the country. Cape Coral is
No. 1.
Yet, that said, Sarasota is
still the slowest growing of all
coastal counties. In 2007
Sarasota has grown by 2.23
percent, with the nearest
county, Manatee, at 2.83 per-
cent. Contrast that with Lee at
3.85 percent and Collier at
3.18 percent.

Today's Ism: Duct tape is
like the Star Wars galaxy: It is
dark on one side, light on the
other and it holds the uni-
verse together.

United Way has reached its
goal of three-quarters of a
million dollars. It hopes to be
able to add several new agen-
cies this year.
There are only 30 days left
to this year's campaign.

The post office dust bowl is
inching toward resolution.
Irrigation is going in, and
shortly behind that will be the
landscaping.

Blood levels are as low as
the water level. You can help
by giving.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Don't put the 'tired' in retired


Editor:
There is a small group of people in the Venice community
that uses misinformation to exaggerate and emotionally
charge people to oppose most everything on the island.
An example: A couple of years ago the city planned a park at
Tramonto Vista Park, between Sharky's and the Paw Park, with
three gazebos, a walking trail around the 19-acre lake, volley-
ball courts, walkovers to the beach and a performance venue.
Most thought it was a good idea and that city council would
pass it.
But the naysayers at the council meeting were able to per-
suade city council to approve it as a "passive park," to be left as
it is now.
Venice4PositiveFuture was formed by concerned citizens to
promote positive ideas for our community. We went to city
council and asked to revisit the park issue. They did, and our
group, by e-mails and taking the time to go to city council for a
couple of meetings, got it passed.
Many of you are in support of a marina, a hotel and con-
vention center to the island airport property. Without vital
development, Venice will become a "tired" retirement commu-
nity.
If you would like to see the opportunities listed above
become a reality, then you must get the word to city council
and the city manager.

Ready to vote for
a candidate tough
on immigration


Editor:
As a veteran and resident
in Florida, I am very dissatis-
fied with the immigration bill
that was passed by the
Senate. It gives amnesty to
persons who have violated
our laws and rewards them
with U.S. citizenship.
They are going to bankrupt
our hospitals, welfare and
Social Security; increase
crime, which is already hap-
pening; and threaten the
security of our country.
If you want to live in the
United States, you must learn
English and obey and respect
our laws and flag. The Senate


must improve the immigra-
tion laws for the protection of
U.S. citizens who live here
legally. Whoever supports the
best immigration law will get
my vote in the next election,
regardless of political party.
It is time to pay attention
to law-abiding citizens and
also enforce our present U.S.
laws.

comments by both city offi-
cials and the public, I have


not seen any com

Important airport questions need some answers from city of Venice


(41

ED MARTIN
COLUMNIST


Since Venice City Manager
Marty Black and city council
are not providing analysis, al-
ternatives and the like about
critical choices facing the com-
munity and council, I have
framed several issues, present-
ed below. These are by no
means exhaustive, just a sam-
ple of the kinds of questions
that need answers.
Black suggests that citizens
should ask their questions of


the MEA Group representa-
tive at anmairport adki'.N 11 c in -
mittee meeting scheduled
today (Wednesday) at 1:30 in
council chambers.
He also points to opportuni-
ties for discussion during a
series of "charrettes" an arc-
hitectural term for bringing
together various experts with
interested parties to design a
given project, in this case the
airport. That series, involving
some well-qualified urban
planners, is scheduled for July,
dates uncertain at present.
Black argues that the city
wants the community to say
what it wants. What would be
helpful, however, would be for
the city to provide leadership
through some analysis of the
difficult issues involving run-
ways, the golf course, possible
hotels and marinas, and identi-
fication of some possible solu-
tions. These could be accom-
panied by some pros and cons.


That would give the citizens
and council some help in fram-
ing questions to the planners
and understanding recom-
mendations as the planning
process proceeds. This kind of
process is what leaders in busi-
ness and higher levels of gov-
ernment routinely utilize to
make decisions.
Issue 1: What options exist,
if any, with regard to the safety
area and the golf course? Can a
request be made to the Federal
Aviation Administration for
some modifications to the
safety area that might reduce
damage to the golf course?
Issue 2: If the safety area
cannot be modified, are there
ways the golf course can be
renovated and preserved with-
out building a hotel in the Red
Lake area? Could the city, with
FAA approval, reduce the rent
to the VGA, allowing it to sup-
port modification costs? Could
the city ask citizens to approve


a bond issue to be repaid with
golf course revenues?
Issue 3: Mayor Fred Ham-
mett has said there will be an
affordable golf course available
to the public. What is his think-
ing on this? Is he assuming a
transfer of the Venice Golf
Association lease to a hotel
developer who would operate
such a course? Has he consid-
ered other options, such as
above? When does the public
find out?
Issue 4: Can development
be limited to the east side of the
airport, with a hotel or other
commercial buildings on and
near the circus site? A shuttle
service from the hotel could
take guests to the beach and
golf course. It could also pick
up travelers at the airport,
which would replicate a service,
available in St. Petersburg that
is attractive to airport users.
Issue 5: Is it feasible to de-
velop a marina in the area be-


hind the train station? There
have been reports that Michael
Miller might want to sell that
property to the county and if so
perhaps a joint city/county
plan could develop a marina
facility there, near the present
boat launching area. This op-
tion, expanding the creek
there, would be within walking
or shuttle distance of down-
town for visiting mariners, and
only one bridge from the Gulf.
This suggestion has been rais-
ed several times without a re-
sponse from council or the city
manager. Why?
Issue 6: Can the airport,
property be gradually devel-
oped, providing it with addi-
tional financial support, by us-
ing the circus area and space
on Airport Road, without the
broad-scale development de-
velopers have proposed? We
have pointed out that the
rough projections of income
and expenditures presented by


the city using trend analysis
overstate the fiscal problems,
even without new develop-
ment. Even one hotel and one
or two commercial building
should support the airport well
into the future, perhaps per-
manently.
Further, while MEA as-
sumes growth in airport usage
- projections based on pre-
dictions of overall growth for
the state the percentage of
such growth in the next five
years is relatively small. Obvi-
ously if the city does not in-
crease capacity, the growth will
not occur in Venice.
In sum, while providing for
citizen input is very desirable,
should citizens be expected to
ask the right questions, inter-
pret the answers, search out
alternatives and consolidate
their thinking around certain
solutions?

An overstatement
There's something special
about Venice fans.
The first ballgame I cov-
ered for the Gondolier Sun
was a district softball game at
Lakewood Ranch. Sitting
behind me in the bleachers
were two retired gentlemen. I
asked them if they had grand-
kids playing.
"Oh, no, we just like to go to
the games."
One was from Wisconsin
and I believe the other was
from Maine. But when they're
in Florida, they're loyal fans of
Venice sports.
A couple nights later I was
at a Venice High School base-
ball game. The whole row
behind me was filled up with
retired folks.
Same thing. They go to all
the games.
One of the most loyal fans
of the game is Col. Jack
Dundas, who has been fol-
lowing Venice baseball for 39
years. Dundas moved to
Venice in 1967, and his son
played ball at Venice in the
1970s.
Now in his 90s, Dundas still
goes to nearly every practice
and nearly every game.
He was recognized for his
unwavering loyalty at last
week's baseball banquet and
again at Wednesday night's
town celebration for the
State Champion Venice High
- School baseball team.,z
'Unfortunately, in last Fri-
day's paper, I inadvertently
overstated Dundas' military
awards. I apologized, and he
was very gracious about it but
felt it was important to make
a correction so misinforma-
tion about his record would
not be repeated.
While Dundas did serve in
World War II, Korea and
Vietnam, he received three,
not seven, Purple Hearts and
no Medals of Honor.
Dundas doesn't like to talk
about the medals he received
years ago. He feels the atten-
tion should be on the young
men and women who are
serving in the Middle East
today.
It's an appropriate message
for Memorial Day and every
day from one of Venices most
respected fans.

VRMC RECEIVES
BLUE DISTINCTION'
RECOGNITION


Venice Regional Medical Center
has long been recognized for the excel-
lence of its cardiac program. Most
recently, the hospital was named a Blue
Distinction Center for Cardiac Care' by
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida: it was
one of only rwenry-five hospitals in the
state and the only hospital in Sarasota
County to receive the distinction.
By implementing its nationwide
Blue Distinction' program. Blue Cross
Blue Shield is striving to increase trans-
parency in healthcare for consumers,
and hopes to enable consumers to make
more informed healthcare decisions.
.i The chief medical officer of Blue Cross
Blue Shield explains. "These centers
show our commitment to identify
leading institutions that meet clinically
-. validated quality standards and deliver
better outcomes in patient care."
For residents of Venice, the BCBS
recognition is another confirmation of
the excellence of the cardiology services
they'can receive in their own commu-
nity' hospital, and it is an affirmation
of the hospital's dedication to provid-
ing our patients with the best medical
care available.

MAKE IT A HEALTHY
AND SAFE SUMMER

^i Summertime in Florida brings
ik its own health hazards, and full-time
residents must take special measures to
protect themselves against some of the
more common dangers. The Florida
Department of Health has issued
Summer Health and Safrq' Tips to help
increase awareness of potential prob-
lems and encourage Floridians to take
common-sense precautions.
Swim Safely
Remember never to dive into water
of unknown depth, and be careful of
freshwater lakes and rivers, which may
have underwater obstacles like stumps.
Never swim during thunderstorms, and
when swimming in public places, look
for areas with on-dunt lifeguards.
Protect Food
In high temperatures and humidity.
it's more important than e\er to practice
safe food handling. Keep all perishable
foods either hot (at least 140 degrees
or cold (less than -45 degrees).
Prevent Heat-Related Illness
v,' To prevent skin cancer, always use
sunscreen when exposed and reapply
often. Also, be sure to drink plenty of
water when outside to prevent heat
stress, exhaustion, and even stroke. And
never leave children or pets in closed
automobiles.
l'rcent Mosquito-Born Disea'se
To reduce the risk of encephalitis,
\Vest Nile Virus and other viruses carried
b\ mosquitoes, observe the following
guidelines: avoid dusk and dawn; use
insect repellants with DEET, wear long
sleeve shirts and pants at prime feeding
times, and drain potential mosquito
sites from around Vour house.

of physicians, wound care nurses, technicians and other experienced staff,
combine to ensure a team approach to specialty wound care.

Non-healing wounds such as diabetic ulcers, peripheral vascular ulcers,
skin tears, traumatic wounds, pressure ulcers and radiation tissue damage
can be very frustrating, painful and expensive to treat if not healed in a
timely manner.

Some reasons for problematic wound healing are poor nutrition,
decreased blood supply and oxygen to the wound, pressure on the
wound, swelling, infection, uncontrolled diabetes or other diseases.

The Center's state-of-the-art wound healing techniques can assist in
expediting the wound healing process by addressing these issues either
directly or through consultation with other specialists Our Center's new-
est and most exciting treatment option is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
During this therapy the patient is placed inside a pressurized chamber
and then breaths 100 percent oxygen. This rapidly delivers high doses of
pure oxygen to the bloodstream, thereby greatly assisting the wound heal-
ing process as well as fighting infection. Studies have shown that certain
chronic wounds can benefit from a course of daily hyperbaric oxygen
treatments resulting in increased circulation and new blood vessel growth
therefore shortening the time for wound healing.

The patient is an integral component in the healing process. Receiv-
ing regular treatments and following the prescribed treatment plan are
critical aspects of a positive treatment outcome.

If you have a wound or would like more information about our services,
please call us at 941-486-602" and speak with the Program Director.

Dick Brown of Rotonda was in charge of two 40-millimeter antiaircraft guns on the port side of
the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid during World War II. The wall plaque is about the Intrepid. He
also flew as part of a PBY "flying boat" crew, like the one above his head, late in the war.

Intrepid, during World War II


Dick Brown coached football, baseball and
basketball at Venice High School.


BY DON MOORE
SENIOR WRITER


D ick Brown of Roton-
da started off think-
ing he was going to
be an 18-year-old
= Naval aviator in 1944. He
found out the military had
more young fly boys than it
needed.
The 80-year-old former
sailor ended up being in
charge of two quad 40-mil-
limeter antiaircraft guns on
the port side of the aircraft
carrier USS Intrepid (CV-11).
The ship had just returned to
San Francisco during World
War II when he went aboard.
Brown served on the Essex
Class carrier when she saw
action at the Battle of Layte
Gulf, Iwo Jima and Okinawa.
He was aboard the Intrepid
when she was hit by Japanese
kamikazes at Layte and
Okinawa that put the 872
foot-long ship temporarily
out of commission.
"I climbed out of the back
of a Navy truck in San
Francisco during the late
summer of 1944 and there at
the pier was the biggest ship
I'd ever seen in my life. It was
the USS Intrepid. CV-11," the
old salt recalled. "She was in
port for repairs. I went aboard
and was assigned to a 40-mil-
limeter antiaircraft gun. I was
a 3rd Class Petty Officer put in
charge of these guns."
'A few days later the- In-
trepid, sailed for Pearl Harbor.
The carrier was loaded with
extra planes and equipment


headed for the fight in the
Pacific.
The fleet, which included
the Intrepid, sailed out of
Pearl headed for the Philip-
pines. In early September it
attacked Japanese airfields in
the Palau Islands and a few
days later struck more air-
fields in Mindanao. By mid-
October the Intrepid was
threatening enemy installa-
tions on Leyte.
"On Nov. 25, 1944, we were
hit by a couple of kamikazes
within two minutes of each
other during the Battle of
Leyte Gulf," Brown said. "The
first kamikaze hit the aft part
of the flight deck. Fortunately
I was on a gun at the other
end of the ship."
A number of officers and
men were killed in the twin
kamikaze attack. However,
the carrier held her position
in the task force during the
historic air battle of Layte
Gulf and managed to put out
the fire aboard ship in two
hours.
After the battle subsided,
the Intrepid sailed for Pearl
Harbor and eventually San
Francisco for repairs. She
arrived on the West Coast
Dec. 20, 1944, and two weeks
later the Essex Class carrier
was ready for sea once more.
"We reached the war zone
in time for the Battle of two Ji-
ma. As I recalled, there
weren't any big problems for
our carrier at Iwo, but that
wasn't the case when we
moved on to Okinawa,"
Brown .said. "Four or five


kamikazes would attack us at
a time at Okinawa. Some
would come in high and oth-
ers would attack low.
"I remember this one time
when the battleship New
Jersey was off our port at
Okinawa and we were firing
our 40-millimeters at two
kamazies that flew low
between our two ships," he
said. "I have no proof we fired
into the New Jersey trying to
shoot down the kamikazes,
but I'm reasonably sure we
did."
Planes from the Intrepid
flew ground-support mis-
sions hitting Japanese instal-
lations on Okinawa. Two
weeks into the 82-day battle
the carrier was struck by
another kamikaze that hit its
flight deck. Eight Intrepid
sailors were killed in the sui-
cide attack and 21 were
injured.
"When the kamikaze
pilot's plane hit our flight
deck he rolled from the cock-
pit of his destroyed plane
onto the deck. By the time he
stopped rolling there wasn't
much left of him," Brown
said.
The kamikaze attack, put
the Intrepid out of service a
second time. She headed for
Pearl Harbor and on to San
Francisco and underwent
more repairs. The carrier
arrived back in the states on
May 19, 1945. Approximately
sixweeks later she returned to
sea and the battle in the
Pacific with Brown aboard.
"When we got back to
Pearl they took me off the
ship and sent me to Guam by
plane," Brown said. "It was
mid-July and I was only on


Guam 24 hours when I was
flown to a seaplane base at
Saipan," he said. "I ended up
on a PBY flying boat flying air-
sea rescue missions. We were
looking for B-29 bomber
crews who crashed at sea dur-
ing their raids on Japan."
Shortly after Aug. 6, 1945,
the day Lt. Col. Paul Tibbets
dropped the first atomic
bomb on Hiroshima from a
B-29 called "Enola Gay,"
Brown's PBY crew members
learned about the super
bomb from a nearby Marine
Corps unit on Saipan.
"The Marines told us," he
said, "'We had dropped the
damnedest bomb anybody
had ever heard of on Japan."
A few days later World War
II was over.
After the war, Brown took
the G.I. Bill, graduated from
college and in 1952 accepted
a teaching and coaching posi-
tion at Venice-Nokomis High
School. For the next 27 years
he would be an assistant foot-
ball coach and head baseball
and basketball at the high
school.
After retiring from teach-
ing he started Gasparilla
Charters, a fishing business
he ran out of Gasparilla Ma-
rina in Placida. Brown and his
charter boat crews fished the
waters of Charlotte Harbor
primarily, but sometimes
fished as far south as Fort
Myers.
He and his wife, Gerri, live
in Rotonda. Brown still has
the ceiling of his garage filled
with spin-fishing outfits
ready to take on the big one
lurking in local waters.

the way they are dealing and
not dealing with this new
stage of their lives together.
Changing mentld and physi-
cal capacities, diminished
retirement income and in-
creased care requirements

The result is a family por-
trait, painted .in words and
action.
"Painting Churches" con-
cerns a topic that will be
addressed by everyone.

... The News from Ecineville


BY FAYE S. MEAR
ESCRIBISTA


Greetings and salivations,
my friends. This is Faye S.
Mear filling in for Ted Rank,
who's up in Odnarlo for a
writer's conference. Here's the
latest news from Ecineville.
No, wait. That's not true.
Ted is not in Odnarlo the
paper just told me to say that.
Ted is actually passed out in a
cheap motel in Dnalfeihc.
Seems he went up there two
days ago to visit an old friend,
sports editor and shoe design-
er Claudius Sporticus. Well,
they were sitting around up
there drinking, telling stories
about the paper, and Ted calls

this morning, still drunk, and
says he can't drive and some-
one would have to write his
column for him.
There. Now the news.
The Ecineville Sun has just
learned of a new fashion cam-
paign targeting some of our
fair city's less-fortunate citi-
zens.
Homegrown label Suca is
coming out with a new line:
Dressing up the Downtrod-
den (DUD). Famous fashion
houses like Alvin Stein, Eve St.
Barnard, Yogi Igoy and others
are getting onboard to dean
.up our streets.
"If we can't get rid of the
downtrodden, working-class
people, at least we can keep


them from looking downtrod-
den," said Suca representative
Raife Oxenburg.
DUD will be taking out bill-
boards in South Ecineville,
nearby Lerual and in other so-
called "affordable" areas like
Trop Htron. Big-box retailers
like LMart and Bullseye, as
well as The Buck-a-roo chain
have already ordered ship-
ments of the new merchan-
'dise.
"I say it's about time," said a
woman who had what ap-
pear.ed to be many of her
belongings on the sidewalk in
front of the Ecineville YWCA
and who gave her name only
as "Hattie." "Why should all
the fancy folks get to look


good? I got places I need to
dress up for, too," she said, as
she twirled her new burgundy
Pravda dress.
Others disagree.
"I think it's disgraceful,"
said Marion Peabody, social
chair of Maroon Hatters
Chapter VIX. "The designers
are lowering their standards
by catering to people like that.
Whoever heard of such a
thing? Next thing you know,
they'll be asking for leftovers at
the Pontoon Club."
The idea of putting a new
face on an old problem origi-
nated in the city of Amor,
where the downtrodden situ-
ation is acute. In Amor, the
locals call them "malvestitis,"


or, the "badly dressed ones."
"We felt a kinship with the
city leaders in Amor," ex-
plained city spokesperson
Pamela Anderson. "No one
likes to step over someone
wearing tattered jeans and
soiled T-shirts. If we can't get
the downtrodden people to
leave town, then by making
high-fashion clothing avail-
able to them, we can at least
help them blend in more with
the charming decor of our
downtown."
Oxenburg said the trend
has already seen success in
the nation's bigger cities.
"Ecineville has consistently
ranked low in the attire of our
downtrodden population," he


said, "and the community is
finally banding together to put
an end to this disgraceful situ-
ation. There's just no excuse
for our citizens all of our cit-
izens not trying to look
their best."
What's next for the Suca
name?
Earl Morton representa-
tives will be visiting Millen-
nium Park and homeless shel-
ters, taverns, thrift stores and
Quickee-Check Money Loan
Stores offering free makeup
tips next month.
"I'll be the first one to sign
up," said Hattie.
You read it here first, folks.
Signing off from Ecineville,
this is Faye S. Mear reporting.

Q 1 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
,874 A 106 oA8 *KJ976
I,
Partner opens the bidding with one
diamond. What do you respond?
A We don't mind if, despite no
spade stopper, you describe your
strength and shape by jumping to
two no trump. But with no tenace to
protect, it might be better for partner
to declare. Respond two clubs.
Q 2 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
AK976 K873 oAK2 4 A7
The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
1NT Pass 34* Pass
?
*forcing
What do you bid now?
A You have a super-maximum no
trump in support of spades, and you
must tell partner about it. The way
to do so is to cue-bid your cheapest
first-round control. Bid four clubs.
Q 3 Vulnerable, you hold:
4A95 A 8762 0 K9 4.KJ5
What is your opening bid?
A With all your points prime and
with a weak five-card major suit,
your hand is better suited to one
heart than one no trump. However,
to do so can cause all sorts of rebid
problems so we reluctantly opt for
one no trump.
Q 4 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
*AQ875 < Q64 o854 4 A 10


The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH
14 Pass 2v
What do you bid now?


EAST
Pass


A That depends on your methods.
If you play two-over-one forcing,
you show your minimum by jump-
ing to four hearts the Principle of
Fast Arrival. If you play partner's
response is not a game force, you
show your minimum opening bid
with a single raise to three hearts.
Q 5 North-South vulnerable, as
South you hold:
AA75 vK10532 OKJ107 *A
The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
19 Pass 24 Pass
What do you bid now?
A We were amazed to find that, in
a major pair event, a number of
South players did not rebid two dia-
monds and, as a result, they missed
a good slam in the suit. We can
think of no other rebid and, if we
were to grade the results, two dia-
monds would get 10 and anything
else zero.
Q 6 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
*K8 vKQ75 oAQJ7 4+954


The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH
14 Pass 10
lv Pass ?
What do you bid now?


WEST
Pass


A You want to be in game in
hearts, so get there by the most
direct route. Since a jump to three
hearts is invitational and might be
passed, bid four hearts.

STAFF REPORT


The Venice Sertoma Club
ended the 2006-07 school
year by honoring two stu-
dents of the year and an edu-
cator of the year.
Elizabeth Eng and Nic-
holas Gissal received the Stu-

....i.I Red Hat ladies are queens for the day


'SOCIAL COLUMNIST


All hail

the queens

When I accepted an invita-
tion from Queen Carol
Fulmer for a party at the
Plantation Golf & Country
Club, I had no idea how spec-
tacular the event would be.
Nearly 300 women dressed
in red, purple and pink trans-
formed the club intoan am-
usement arcade for women.
Queens, vice queens and
princesses shopped until the\
dropped at various temporary
boutiques. Women chose hats
of different shapes and sizes
adorned witlhfeathers and
flowers.
The most impressive sales
involved bling. Tables covered
with. faux diamonds and ru-
bies attracted young and old.
There were ruby slippers and
diamond-studded shawls and
vests.
The gala celebration spon-
sored by the Venice Red Hat
Queen's Council celebrated
National Red Hat Day. On
April 28. 1998, Exalted Queen
Mother Sue Ellen Cooper
decided women needed a
chance to get together and
have fun. Since then, Red Hat
chapters internationally cele-
brate this day.
In Venice, queens Carol
Fulmer. and Cheryl McAvoy
co-chaired the gathering that
included Venice, Nokomis
and North Port chapters.
"'One of the nice things about
the society is it gives women
who might not be able to get
out and go places a chance to
do so," Mc'Avoy said.
The event opened ;with
everyone touching their red
hats and reciting the pledge
that included the words, "I
promise to regularly practice
laughter and having fun." The
group learned that some-
times it takes four people to
replace one. Fulmer passed
her scepter as chair of the
Venice Red lHar Queen's
Council to McAvoy, Queen
Betty Stern, Vice Queen
Marty Sanders and Queen
Judy Blow.
An event this regal doesn't
just happen. A curtsy goes to

week is Queen Carol Fulmer.
