Bird Bay

burglar

caught

BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Bird Bay residents can
breathe a little easier with the
arrest of a suspected burglar.
Venice police arrested
Tameriam E Meladze, 26, 400
block Altair Road, Venice, and
charged him with armed bur-
glary. The incident happened
at 3:23 a.m., June 4.
According to the police
report, a woman resident
reported a "suspicious male"
walking behind the condos in
the 800 block of Waterside
Drive. She thought the man
tried to break into her lanai. I
Police found a window in
her building ajar. They
announced who they were
but got no response, not
knowing the homeowners
were in Greenwich, Conn., for
the summer.
They climbed into the
condo through the open win-
dow and went into the lanai.
They noticed the sliding glass
door into the master bed-
room was open. They again
announced their presence
and started looking around.
Sgt. Tom Mattmuller saw
movement inside the closed
shower stall. He opened it and
saw Meladze lying on the
shower floor.
Mattmuller took him out at
gunpoint. Meladze was lying
on a pearl-handled kitchen
knife matching a set in a
kitchen drawer that was miss-
ing one.
Common sense
Police urge homeowners
who are here part-time to
notify police when they are
going away. They may also
request additional patrols; if
possible, police will accom-
modate. Homeowners also
should tell police if someone

School board debating superintendent evaluation


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER


How can you tell if a school
superintendent is doing a
good job?
The Sarasota County,
School Board had a master
board workshop'June 5 to help
board members figure out
how to answer that question!
At a board meeting in
January 2007. to discuss Su-
perintendent Gary Norris'
raise, members of the board


said they wanted the evalua-
tion to be based on qualita-
tive data, such as graduation
rates and Florida Compre-
hensive Assessment Test
scores.
At Tuesday's workshop,
Carolyn Kitchens, a represen-
tative of the Florida School
Boards Association, gave the
board members ideas on how
to create a new evaluation for
the superintendent's posi-
tion.
Board member Carol Todd

five or six
times. Because of that, Todd
asked if the evaluation should
be written for the person who

Board Chair Frank Kovach

One of the most promi-
nent golf and country clubs in
Venice quietly changed hands
a few weeks ago.
Cabot Investment Proper-
ties acquired Pelican Pointe
'Golf & Country Club, 575
Center Road, for $13 million.
Buena Vista Hospitality
Group, Old Saybrook Golf,
Capital and Sam Rodgers
Properties had owned the
property for five years.
LittleStone Management
LLC has replaced Buena Vista
Hospitality Group as the
club's management compa-'
ny.
Ralph Little, managing
partner for Littlestone, is the
common link in the transac-
tion. He has 21 years in the
golf industry and is an
investor in nine clubs in
seven states and a partner of
Old Saybrook Golf Capital.

15 years acquisitions of com-

Cabot owns Crystal Lake

Following the sale, Tom

replacing carpeting.
"The new owners intend to
keep it as a golf club and have
confirmed this in their mis-

The transaction included
the 27-hole golf course,
22,000-square-foot country
club, two tennis courts, com-

This new 1,999-property
development does not have a
golf course, but according to

dent of sales and marketing, it
will offer luxury, Ritz resort-

The Gulf Breeze Hotel as it looked in the late 1940s. It was
originally built by the Brotherhood of Locomotive
Engineers in late 1926 and opened as the Park View Hotel
Feb. 11, 1927. During the Depression years it was sold to
Dr. Fred Albee and opened as his internationally known
Florida Medical Center. The Venice Army Air Base took it
over in 1942 as a hospital for the base. In 1946, it was sold
and became the Pines Hotel; it was sold again and operat-
ed under the name of Gulf View. It was sold once more
and the final name was Gulf Breeze. The building was
razed in 1970 and the present post office built on the site.

Restaurant? No.
Video store? No.
Gas station, McDonald's,
7-Eleven, pharmacy? No, no,
no, no.
Office building? Well, OK.
The Sarasota County Com-
mission shot down a non-
binding commercial rezoning
request for a 1-acre site at
1409-1411 East Manasota
Beach Road at the behest of
local residents and the dic-
tates pf its own collective con-
science.
The site, which would be
called Manasota Square, of-
fered 7,220 square feet of
space, according to Brian
Lichterman, president of
Vision Planning & Design,
who spoke on, behalf of the
petitioner.
"This neighborhood is com-
mercial," Lichterman said. "It's
intended to be lower intensi-
ty."
That came as cold comfort
to a number of Englewood
residents who came out to
voice opposition.
"I am speaking both as a
resident of Englewood and
also as a director of the North
Manasota Key Homeowners
Association," said Joyce 'Kol-
mar. "(We) are opposed to a
nonbinding change of zoning
because there may be a gas
station or a 7-Eleven conve-
nience store placed on this
property."
Acceptable
Kolmar said the communi-
ty did not object to more
"laid-back" stores there,
which would attract less traf-
fic congestion than "eyesores
such as McDonald's, Burger
King, gas stations and banks,"
which, according to the non-
binding aspect of the rezone,
could appear there.
Another concern express-
ed by local residents was the
site's proximity to the Man-
asota Scrub Preserve across
the street, containing scrub
jays that may be scared off by
increased traffic in the imme-
diate area.
Despite the opposition in
the room, County Commis-
sioner Paul Mercier moved to
allow the zoning to proceed.
No one would second.
County Commissioner
Shannon Staub then moved
to deny the petition and was
immediately seconded by
County Commissioner Joe

Barbetta.
"Frankly, with the amount
of commercial (amenities)
available in both Lemon Bay
Shopping Center and up in
the U.S. 41 and Jacaranda
Boulevard area, I don't see
that the need is there," Staub
said.


Barbetta agreed, suggest-
ing office-professional use of
the property as more appro-
priate stipulating that no
drive-through ought to be
allowed.
"We would accept that,"
Lichterman said.
Staub offered another


motion incorporating Barb-
etta's suggestion, adding the
height limitation for the
building should be set at 35
feet.
The motion passed unani-
mously.

Compatability questioned


Sarasota County braces for budget cuts


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Did the first test of the j int
planning agreement between
Venice and Sarasota County
get a failing grade?
The parties are trying to
reach consensus following a
vote by the Venice Planning
Commission last month that
approved the Bella Citta
development proposal along
Pinebrook Road.
In a letter to Venice Mayor
Fred Hammett, Nora Pat-
terson, chair of the county
board of commissioners,
wrote of their disappoint-
ment with the 4-3 vote
endorsing the east Venice
development.
'Compatibility'
Bella Citta is a proposed
condominium development
on a 46-acre site at Laurel and
Pinebrook roads in Venice.
About 180 townhouses and
condominiums were pro-
posed in four-, eight- and 12-
unit clusters in three-story
buildings.
Sorrento Ranches, a com-
munity of 5-acre homesites,
abuts Bella Citta, which had
petitioned for rezoning twice
since 2004 with fewer units


and a different name. The
proposed density is four units
per acre.
Sorrento's owners were
polled about the new devel-
opment. They voted 3-1 in
opposition because "it is out
of character with the sur-
rounding community."
Rezoning at lower densities
for developments abutting'
existing low-density commu-
nities is mandatory under the
county's interpretation of
Section 11.1 of the JPA, accord-
ing to Anne McClung, the
county's planning .director.
Sorrento's homeowners con-
sider two units per acre com-
patible with their community.
Patterson suggested to
Hammett that "our commu-
nities could use this opportu-
nity to develop a more formal
process for addressing com-
patibility in similar situations
in the future."
She expressed the county's
willingness to employ a facili-
tator to conduct discussions
between the city and the
county "on what exactly is
compatible and realistic."
She wrote that the county
commissioners prefer this
approach to the terms of the
JPA's dispute resolution provi-
sion.

'To fix what's broken, some people are going to get hurt.' State
Rep. Michael Grant.


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER -


If a recent tax roundtable
was any indication, the state
Legislature will definitely
move forward with significant
cuts in property taxes.
According to Jeff Seward,
chief financial planning offi-
cer for Sarasota County, this
really puts him and his col-
leagues behind the eight ball.
"I cannot for the life of me
understand their logic or
thinking," Seward said of the
strongly worded property tax
reduction stance taken by
Reps. Michael Grant, R-Port
Charlotte; Doug Holder, R-
Sarasota; Ron Reagan, R-
Bradenton; and Keith Fitz-
gerald, D-Sarasota.
Fitzgerald maintains that
high property taxes are pric-
ing home ownership in
Florida out of the range of
people who want to live and
work here.
"When you add up the cost
of property insurance, prop-
erty taxes, the fact that we
don't have a great wage struc-
ture in this state and there's
been great inflation in prop-
erty values, it means a.lot of
working people cannot afford
to live here," Fitzgerald said.
"That depresses the entire
business economy."


Grant agreed.
"There's a huge discrepan-
cy between personal income
over the past five years and
the amount of property tax
we collect," Grant said.
"Unfortunately, in order to fix
what's broken some people
are going to get hurt."
Seward believes county
residents would feel that pain,
asserting property taxes pro-
vide the necessary funding for
essential county services.
"They seem to have a com-
plete inability to me to under-
stand how we conduct busi-
ness on the local level,"
Seward said of the legislators.
First option
Nevertheless, the county
must now devise a plan to
undertake what Seward sees
as projected budget cuts of as
much as $30 million, $40 mil-
lion or even $50 million.
"Typically, in the beginning
of June, we submit to (com-
missioners) a proposed bud-
get, and we're not doing that
this year," Seward said. "What
we are doing is preparing for
the workshops in June where
we're going to go through a
series of prioritizations and
options with them."
Those workshops, on June
19, 20 and 22, will occur as the
Legislature meets for a special


session to discuss tax reform.
Seward said the work-
shops will set the stage for
how commissioners deal
with expected reductions.
"The first option we have is
looking at how we do busi-
ness internally," Seward said.
That includes re-evaluat-
ing and redirecting current
revenue streams, such as the
communications services tax
and the tourism develop-
ment tax, he added.
"Something else we're
looking at is new revenue
streams, particularly in parks
and recreation," Seward said.
"For instance, let's say $2 mil-
lion of a $30 million reduction
might get made up in some
type of revenue parks and rec
could generate maybe
increasing fees, parking at
Siesta Beach, selling beer and
wine on Siesta Key more
enhanced revenue produc-
tion. Also included in that
might be a look at franchise
fees, where an enterprise
funds or a utility pays a fee
into the general fund."
Service cuts
After all other options are
exhausted, the emphasis will
then shift to service reduc-
tions.
"We're going to create a
prioritization list for the
board," Seward said. "It is a
hierarchy of needs."
That hierarchy will include


the following: public safety;
mobility; regulatory and code
enforcement; appointed con-
stitutional officers; internal
support systems; and debt.
"We will then have a week
to work with staff and recom-
mend where cuts should
occur within those prioritiza-
tion levels," Seward said.
Another series of work-
shops takes place, on July 2, 3
and 5.
"Then we'll come back
with recommendations for
the board to either approve or
alter," he said.
July 15
Time is of the essence on
these decisions, as the com-
missioners have until July 15
to get the millage rate certi-
fied. A mill equals $1 per
$1,000 of assessed property
value.
Seward sees decisions
about exactly where the
reductions will occur emerg-
ing from the second set of
workshops.
"By then, we'll know exact-
ly what the Legislature is
going to do." Seward said.
"We'll know what the prioriti-
zation of the board is to apply
to that (expected) decrease.
So, by close of business on
July 5 we have to have a tenta-
tive budget that we can set a
village rate on."

OMEGA GARAGE DOORS, INC.
We have faced times in our lives where a project or problem must be attended to
immediately due to deadline constrintswhether it affects our careers or personal life

Our Business of the Month Award winner was challenged in two separate occurrences
that needed attention as soon as possible. Two separate letters outline the problems
each consumer faced.
"In my role as a local physician immediate on-call care for patients is often a necessity.
You could imagine my plight when my garage door was totally inoperable. I called
one company and they said it would be the following day before they could be of
service. Fortunately the second company, Omega Garage Doors, understood the
dire nature of my situation. They arrived immediately evaluated the problem and took
the proper steps to remedy promptly. Omega Garage Door Company in Venice since
1968 is an example of a top quality, caring business. I recommend them without
hesitation."
In the second incident, a Chamber member wrote:
"I was in a real dilemma as my garage door, which is the pathway I only use to enter
my home, was jammed in the closed position. I had surgery planned the next day
and panic began as how could I get in. I immediately called Ombga Garage Doors
that, afternoon. They.rearranged their schedule to tend to my problem. A friendly,
professional technician arrived soon, resolved the problem quickly. Now, that's
customer service from a loyal Chamber business to help another member business
in rapid fashion."
Omega Garage Doors, Inc. is located at 328 Seaboard Avenue, Venice,

Residents to get their say on fertilizer


The Sarasota County Commission spent most of
its time Tuesday ironing out language to stress
the importance of vegetative buffers, proper
application and caps on blends using phospho-
rus and nitrogen.


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER
Sarasota County commis-
sioners set July 11 as the date
for a public hearing on an
amended fertilizer ordinance
Tuesday, but not before they
streamlined its language.
By the time the discussion
ended, the commissioners
had included in the proposed
ordinance a recommenda-
tion for slow-release fertiliz-
ers; caps on blends using
phosphorus and nitrogen;
and an exemption for new,
diseased or damaged land-
scapes during a restricted fer-
tilizer season.
The commissioners were
working from a proposed
ordinance draft, presented by
Water Resource Manager Jack
Merriam, which contained
the following criteria:
A restricted season (June
1-Oct. 1) during which no fer-
tilizers containing nitrogen or
phosphorus may be applied
No fertilizer may be
applied, spilled or deposited
on any impervious surface
A fertilizer-free zone of 10
feet from any pond, stream,
water course, lake, canal or
wetland
A 6-foot, no-mow zone
from any pond, stream, water
course, lake, canal or wetland
A spreader deflector on
all broadcast spreaders
*-Grass clippings or vegeta-
tive material must not be
washed or blown into
stormwater drains, ditches,
conveyances, water bodies or
roadways


Training will be required
for all commercial and insti-
tutional applicators of fertiliz-
er.
Slow bum
But Commissioner Jon
Thaxton wanted more -
especially when it came to
maintaining fertilizer-free
shoreline buffers.
"Vegetative shorelines are
the single most important
thing that we
can do to im-
prove water
quality stan-
dards in this
state," Thaxt-
on said, addf-
ing that non-
natural set-
tings domi-
nate virtually Thaxton
every inch of
the shoreline, to the detri-
ment of the local ecology.
Thaxton also expressed his
concern over fertilizer appli-
cation.
"There's nowhere in the
ordinance that we're recom-
mending slow-release blends,"
Thaxton said. "I know there's
no place in the ordinance
where we're requiring per-
centages of slow-release
blends."
Thaxton said a well-mean-
ing people could purchase
fertilizer and apply it in a
manner inconsistent with the
ordinance and not know they
were doing anything wrong.
That led to a discussion of
educating the public espe-
cially on the ecological supe-
riority of slow-release blends


over fast release as an effec-
tive alternative to enforce-
ment, which could be diffi-
cult.
"At the point of sale we
could also have Web links to
the green industry and con-
tact information for those
who want to learn more
about correct application to
Florida yards," Thaxton said.
Ultimately the commis-
sioners approved language
including a recommenda-
tion of slow-release blends
over fast-release blends,
which could wash chemicals
more readily into local
waterways. They also ap-
proved a cap on blends using
more than 2 percent of phos-
phorus and a cap of 5
pounds per 1,000 square feet
per year on nitrogen.
In addition, an exemption
was included in the "restrict-
ed season" section of the ordi-
nance for new, diseased or
damaged landscapes.
Merriam was optimistic
afterward when asked how
the ordinance would be
enforced.
"We don't catch everybody
who speeds on the interstate,
but we adopt speed limits and
most people follow them,"
Merriam said. "Most individ-
uals and homeowners groups.
want to do the right thing."

PLAN.1P
principles and practices that
attempt to unify a communi-
ty's character based on
design, architectural and
building standards, Slaughter
said.
Collectively, he calls them
"livable community princi-
ples."
The idea is to manage resi-
dential density in the urban
core and thus prevent sprawl,
reduce traffic congestion and
re-establish the original
neighborhood development
principals instituted by John
Nolen in the 1926 Venice Plan.
"Urban sprawl is a costly. It
eats up land," Slaughter said.
"I look at this as more of a
cafeteria plan. We can pick
and choose from traditional
town planning, new urban-


2007 VENICE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN
SUMMARY: The city is updating the 1999 Venice Comprehensive
Plan.
WHAT'S NEW: The Venice Planning Commission adopted a draft
2007 comp plan on June 4.
WHAT IT DOES: It's the long-range plan for future development
of the community, identifying needed infrastructure improve-
ments and funding.
NEXT STEP: The draft 2007 comp plan goes to city council for
approval on June 26, then to the state Department of
Community Affairs for compliance review on July 6. Meanwhile,
the public and city partners will Ilw,:- 90 days in which to com-
ment on the plan. Completion is due by November.


ism, or smart growth" to
address concerns.
It also borrows heavily
from the 2006 EAR (Evalu-
ation and Appraisal Report)
report, based on numerous
community meetings.
"For the first time it looks


at city development strategi-
cally; not just as a process,"
Slaughter said. "It's a recipe
for how we got to where we
are."
Redevelopment
Also, for the first time, the


2007 comp plan identifies
areas for redevelopment.
In addition to identifying
city enclaves as "villages,"
complete with their own
standards for development,
the plan cites nine areas on
the island of Venice and just
east of downtown off the
island as prime for redevelop-
ment.
They include: The
Esplanade, Heritage Park,
City Centre, Island Profes-
sional, Golden Beach, Airport
North, Airport Venetian Ur-
ban, Seaboard Village and
Bird Bay-Northern Gateway.
Planners hope to guide
future growth within these
city infill areas by establishing
planning practices that
attract mixed-use business
and residential development,
and push out incompatible


uses.
Granny flats
Also new is the tacit ap-
proval of "granny flats" in cer-
tain areas as another tool to
promote affordable housing
within city limits.
"Accessory dwelling units,"
as they are called in the
report, are encouraged in
low-density residential and
medium-density residential
neighborhoods that typically
grant more space per
dwelling unit, but the plan
doesn't spell out which neigh-
borhoods are ripe for ADUs.
Areas that are in transition
are good candidates, Slaugh-
ter said, like Pinebrook or
East Gate.
More deadlines
The plan, which promotes


modern urban neighbor-
hoods, green building prac-
tices and better transporta-
tion and trail connectivity
among other things, will
require more than 30 studies
or city plan revisions over the
next three to five years.
It moves next, to city coun-
cil for approval on June 26,
then to the Florida Depart-
ment of Community Affairs
for compliance review on July
6.
"Venice is the only local
community that will be on
time and will not request an
extension from the state,"
according to Slaughter.
The public and city part-
ners will have 90 days in
which to comment on the
plan, which is scheduled for
completion in November.

A policy for the evalua-
tion needs to be written and
approved.
An annual evaluation cal-
endar that coincides with
the performance evaluation


needs to be written.
A strategic plan with
annual priorities set by the
board members needs to be
written.
According to Kitchens, any
board member may meet
with Norris regarding devel-
oping his evaluation. How-
ever, if any papers are ex-
changed, they become public
record.
Raises and termination
According to Norris, he
gets a 3-percent cost-of-living
raise every year. On top of
that increase, Norris is eligible
for another 7-percent pay
increase based on his perfor-


mance evaluation.
Kitchens said the superin-
tendent's evaluation should
not be used as a time to dis-
miss the superintendent.
Board member Shirley
Brown said the superinten-
dent's contract renewal might
be the better time to evaluate
if he is meeting the needs of
the district.
What will happen
The consensus of the
board members was the eval-
uation should be based on
the superintendent's out-
comes. However, the school
board members did not agree
on a model at the workshop.


According to Board
Member Caroline Zucker, the
evaluation model they are
working on will be for Norris'
2007-08 school year. She said
she expected the review to be
done using the new model in
the summer of 2008.
At a planning workshop
June 4, Norris requested he be
given a small performance
evaluation in January 2008,
prior to his required summer
2008 evaluation.
The superintendent's new
evaluation document must
be completed by September
2008.

Funding for sensitive lands program faces cuts


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Jono Miller, chair of the
Environmentally Sen sitive
Lands Oversight Committee,
got a dose of financial reality
Tuesday from the Sarasota
County Commission during
his annual report.
ESLOC was established in
1999 to oversee the Environ-
sitive Lands .
Protection Pro-
gram, which
was formed to
acquire and
preserve lands '.. *
through deal-
ings with will-
ing sellers.
During the Patterson
past year, ES-
LOC has pre-
served scrub jay habitat, mon-
itored plans for River Road,
identified sites for parks and
advised the commissioners
on greenways, trails and other
land protection and manage-
ment programs.
"When we started this pro-
gram, we had no idea whether
landowners would want to
participate," Miller said.
"Since that time, land prices
have increased, we don't have
enough money to buy every
property we're interested in
and people continue to bring
sites to our attention. The'
pool keeps increasing."
Chair Nora Patterson cau-


tioned Miller the current eco-
nomic downturn would most
likely continue in the near.
term, based on anticipated
tax cuts coming from Talla-
hassee.
"There will be a rollback in
the amount of dollars per
capital that the county can

tax," Patterson said, adding
that an expected vote in the
Legislature reducing the tax
base could further affect"
funds for land acquisitions
recommended by ESLOC.
"The program will suffer,"
Patterson said, recommend-
ing Miller contact Sen. Lisa


Carlton, R-Sarasota, and Rep.
Michael Grant, R-Port Char-
lotte, and let them know of his
concerns.
"I can't stress enough how
important it will be in the
next week that they hear from
you," Patterson said.

Tropical Storm Barry fails to tame fire danger


The skies Monday were
again filled with smoke
from the big Georgia
fire, and the Lake
Okeechobee and
Babcock Ranch fires
continued to burn after
Tropical Storm Barry
dumped on them.


BY ROBERT BOWDEN
STAFF WRITER

Anyone looking into the
distance here Monday could
see smoke.
It came from Georgia,
again.
That big forest fire near the
Georgia-Florida border con-
tinued to affect Southwest
i Florida.
Part of the blame for Mon-
day's haze belongs to Tropical
Storm Barry.
Barry dumped copious
rain over much of Florida as it
crossed the state on the first
day of the 2007 Atlantic hurri-
cane season. It dropped 1.57
inches on Lake Okeechobee,
enough to slow an 18,200-
acre fire burning on dried-out
lake bottom.,
But that fire remains only
85 percent contained, accord-
ing to Patrick Mahoney of the
Florida Division of Forestry.
Mahoney said there are
10,000 more acres that could
burn in the dried-out lake
bed. Lake Okeechobee fell to
a record low level last week
before Barry's rains arrived.
The lake, which supplies
much of South Florida with
drinking water and irrigates
nearby sugar cane fields, is
about 4 feet below where it
should be this time of year.
Much of the shoreline con-
sists of dried aquatic plants,
i now burning.
UpTltI-ffieBugabolT i-near
the state's northern border, at
least twice as much rain fell.
So much, in fact, that Ma-
: honey said the 124,584-acre
Bugaboo is "contained." That
doesn't mean it's "out," Ma-
honey said.
I; It means firefighters have it
k surrounded. The hope is that
it will bum no more acreage.
It's "out," he said, when a fire-
fighter can put a bare hand on
the ground.
SUnbroken
To understand how this
area again got smoke from
300 miles to the north, con-
sider that tropical systems are
low-pressure areas of coun-
terclockwise winds. Barry
moved over Florida by mak-
ing landfall in Tampa Bay,
I then crossing) northeast to
exit near Jacksonville.
Barry's winds were. strong
enough to whip the Bugaboo
smoke westward as Barry
moved ashore. As the storm
Ssped past Bugaboo, the wind
shifted to blow from the
northeast, then north. Smoke
Entered the Gulf of Mexico,
then moved off theWest Coast
of Florida.
As Barry moved up to the
northeast, northerly and
westerly winds blew that
smoke into Charlotte, Sara-
sota and DeSoto counties.
The National Weather
Service in Tampa reported
that the smoke was light, but
would persist. By today, the
service advised, the smoke
should have blown into the
Atlantic.
SMahoney said enough rain
fell over north Florida to
return the drought index to
the "wet" side. But that didn't
happen for Charlotte, Sara-
sota and DeSoto.
Up to 2 inches of rain fell as
Barry passed west in the Gulf,
but it left the drought index
here in the 500s, Mahoney
said, where any number
above 400 is "dry."
Our drought was not bro-
ken.
And the rains did nothing


to extinguish the stubborn
"Middle of Nowhere" fire on
Babcock Ranch. That fire has
expanded to 7,104 acres, Ma-
honey said, and likely will
burn for days or weeks to


come.
"That's just going to burn,"
Mahoney said, "until we get
lots of rain."
Band-Aid
Foliage is so dense in
Babcock that only torrential


rains can reach the soil.
Mahoney likened it to heavy
coats of hair on a dog. Water
just can't penetrate. And fire-
fighters can't get equipment
to the source of the fires still
burning.
The Okeechobee fires pre-

Mahoney said the tropical
rains are only a brief reprieve
from a drought that now
extends over the past 18
months.
"(The rains) helped," he
said, "but they're a Band-Aid.
We need more rain on a con-


sistent basis."
"What we don't want is
people thinking the (fire dan-
ger) is over just because it
rained. The ban on open
burning remains in effect."

Avoid tunnel vision on 776 corridor plan


S arasota County Commissioner
Shannon Staub got it right recently
when she brought up the subject of
the State Road 776 Corridor Plan.
It's broke. Let's fix it.
Actually, Staub was a little more elegant
in her use of the language, but that was the
essence of the idea.
What she said was, "We need to be sure
the plan is reflecting what the community
feels the plan should be."
You might think the plan already was a,
reflection- of community attitudes toward
development.
It was adopted in late 2003 after many
months of planning, public workshops and
hearings. Hours of work went into its adop-
tion.
The introduction says the plan "seeks to
transform an 8.5-miles state road from a


typical four- and six-lane urban thorough-
fare lined with walled subdivisions and strip
commercial centers into a unique corridor
by promoting mixed-use, compact forms of
pedestrian-friendly development."
It was a good goal.
It's just not really working.
The drive from U.S. 41 in South Venice
into Englewood is still a lovely ride. It's a
pleasant thoroughfare with plenty of poten-
tial.
But one thing is obvious: The new devel-
opments under construction still have
walls, which create that closed-in tunnel
effect.
Why are they permitted?
The plan had no effect on projects that
already fit existing zoning. So unless a devel-
oper is asking to rezone the property, the
county has little say over the matter.


There are other, less obvious, issues. The
plan encouraged small roadways connect-
ing developments. This so-called "connec-
tivity" would relieve traffic on S.R. 776 and
also relieve residents of the need to drive out
onto the big road if they wanted to get from
here to there.
The problem seems to be no one wants
the additional traffic through their commu-
nities. There is something comfortable in
walls and self-enclosed communities.
From the inside looking out, it makes
plenty of sense. A wall blocks the sound and
view of traffic. And who wants additional
traffic within his or her housing communi-
ty? There was also a call for "a consistent
architectural theme along the corridor," but
nothing that put teeth into the guidelines.
So instead of integration of styles and
neighborhoods, there is segregation.


And then there is the concept of mixed
uses on the properties. Again, it sounds
good. In practice, however, every mixed-use
plan has met resistance from neighbors
opposed to certain types of mixed uses,
such as gas stations and convenience stores.
Above all, the plan was based on incen-
tives, and it is clear, so far, that this is not
enough.
County Administrator Jim Ley suggested
the solution could come with new formed-
based code zoning being discussed by the
county. That's likely a long way off, however.
Englewood Road S.R. 776 has the
potential to be a model for smart develop-
ment in South County, but more effective
guidance is needed.
Commissioners are leaning toward tak-
ing another look at the plan. It's a good idea,
because it's not working now.


It's done sort of

COLUMNIST


This last week at the Venice
Area Chamber of Commerce
Business of the Year awards
luncheon, Venice Area Beau-
tificatidn Inc. received well-
deserved recognition as the
nonprofit organization of the
year.
VABI is best known for the
6-mile Venetian Waterway
Park, although it has spear-
headed many other worth-
while beautification projects;
one of the most recent is the
arboretum at Blalock Park.
For years the trail was a
dream of many. I remember
writing about my vision after
a trip to San Antonio seeing
its River Walk. Russ Snyder, a
local attorney, had also
pushed the idea.
But the real birth of the for-
mal idea came when there
was a visioning process called
2020. Greg Vine was a leader
in this effort to look at the
future of our area. From that,
VABI decided to take on this
huge undertaking.
Maggie Turner, then a city
council member, was a big
force behind the project, as
were Don Hay, Bill Willson,
Janis Fawn, Fred Hammett,
Alex Moseley, Jean Trammell
and many others I am forget-
ting.
Arguably the person who
turned the project from a
slow-moving vision into a
fast-growing dream-come-
true was Terry Redman. He
acted as the director, spark
plug and get-it-done man
who wrote grants, cleared
brush and worked with the
governing bodies to make it
happen.
Last week the last piece of
cement was poured behind
tower three of Waterford's
Waterfront condominiums to
complete the dream. You can
park at the trailhead the
VABI office next to the Hat-
chett Creek Bridge and
now go all the way. to Cas-
persen Park and the beach.
On the east side you can
park at Shamrock Park and
ride to the train depot, or
Venice Avenue and go across
the bridge on the new walk-
ways and continue on the
other side or head downtown.
It is a huge asset and draw
to our community, used by all
ages from roller skaters to dog
walkers to bicyclists to jog-
gers.


It has been my hope that it
will become tree lined, to
relieve the stress of the heat
we have. That and other
things like shelters and picnic
areas, fitness areas, more art
and the like could be part of
making this even more
incredible.
Congrats to all those who
have worked so hard over the
years to make this a reality.

Congrats to C.J. Fishman,
who last night received the

given out by SCOPE to those
who go way beyond the norm
to make our communities
better.
C.J. is heading up fireworks
fundraising for Sertoma, as he
has for years. Should you see

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS
A viable airport helps us all


Editor: /
I like it here in Venice. I like that my home has appreciated
in value. I like that I can afford to play golf all summer.
I like it because I can walk downtown, stop for a glass of
wine or grab an ice cream cone. I like the farmers market on
Saturday. I like what the city did with Sharky's and I am proud
of the city's role over the years with the airport.
I want to be on record as a golfer who believes the city does-
n't owe me anything. The golf course isn't my golf course; if the
city needs to take it away for progress, I'll be sad, but it never
was mine anyway.
I want to be on record as someone who loves planes and all
that goes with a small-town airport. The airport was here
before I was born and I knew it was an airport when I moved
here. If the city needs to take it away for progress, I'll be sad; but
it never was mine anyway.
I'd like the airport to have a good restaurant where I could
enjoy dinner and watch the planes. I'd like to see a shopping
facility on the airport as well as a hotel; and I'd like commuter
service by air to fMami, Tampa, Fort Lauderdale and Orlando
that is cheap enough to use.
All of this is dependent upon an airport that has economic via-
bility If it supports itself, it will benefit the entire community

Let all eligible Floridians cast their votes


I '* I


BY DIANNE WHEATLEY-GILIOTTI
GUEST COLUMNIST

The right to vote is the foun-
dation of our democracy and
the hallmark of our power.
The history of the oppressed
has shown that one of the most
important rights sought is suf-
frage. Without real access tothe
ballot, everything else is mean-
ingless.
We have gone from poll
taxes and literacy tests to the
latest craze of voter disen-
franchisement: "No match,
no vote." Now Florida resi-
dents must jump through the
many hoops dictated by the
state if they want to vote.
Florida supervisors of elec-
tions refused to register a
large percentage of otherwise
eligible residents based on
the state's purported inability
to verify the applicant's iden-
tifying number, such as a dri-
ver license number, Social
Security number or Florida
identification card number.
These requirements cause
problems for many eligible
voters. For example, a citizen
registering as "William" might
not match if his driver's li-
cense is issued under "Bill." A
woman's married name might
not match against an outdat-
ed database containing her
maiden name.
Moreover, matching an ap-
plicant's registration number
with information in a data-
base is an error-prone and
unreliable process.
A study by Abt Associates, a
government and business re-
search and consulting firm,
determined that in a Florida
social-services database, up to


26 percent of the records
included city names spelled in-
correctly, including 40 spellings
of Fort Lauderdale.
In 2006, a sample of 606
voter-registration applica-
tions submitted to the Mi-
ami-Dade supervisor's office
by voting rights organizations
Advancement Project and
Project Vote, found approxi-
mately 27 percent of first-
time registrants were not
added to the registration rolls
because the state was unable
to match their identification
number.
Even more troubling, while
Florida's matching procedures
not only disenfranchise nu-
merous eligible voters, they
disproportionately affect cer-
tain racial and ethnic groups.
It is common for people of
Latino descent to use both ma-
ternal and paternal last names
or to use one or the other
inconsistently. If an individual
uses a different version of her
name on an application than is
used in the database, she will
not be registered to vote.
In African-American com-
munities, it is common to
modify spellings of names
spelled differently in other
cultures. One recent study
reported that Jazmine, Jasmin
and Jazmin are all common
names in African-American
communities. Any of these
names could easily be mis-
spelled by an elections work-
er entering the name. in the
database as Jasmine.
Florida's law is inconsis-
tent with the Help America
VoteAct, and in fact is prohib-
ited by both HAVA and the
Voting Rights Act of 1965.


HAVA requires every state
to obtain a unique identifying
number for voter-registration
applicants. But it does not
make the verification of one's
ID number a prerequisite for
one's eligibility to vote. As
such, Florida should not go'
beyond its existing methods
for determining eligibility,
which include requiring that
all voters present an ID at the
polls.
State voter protection groups
have asked the Florida Sec-
retary of State Kurt S. Browning
to remedy this Election Day
nightmare. We want him to
allow voters whose identifica-
tion number has not been
verified to verify their num-
bers at the polls by presenting
identification.
Also voters who are on
"hold" because of the state's
inability to verify their identi-
fication number should be
notified of their right to pre-
sent identification at the
polls. There also should be an
Internet posting of all the
people who are on "hold."
Florida is mounting one of
the most aggressive efforts in
the country to keep voters off
the rolls. Rather than trying to
pare down rolls of voters
politicians should do all they
can to get more voters to the
polls.
And while all of us want
the voting rolls to be accurate,
the state must balance that
with the notion that you
shouldn't keep people off the
rolls who are eligible to vote.

of Women Voters of Florida.

Leadership means being in front


Leadership. I was reading this morning and saw a very wise
saying by Hank Fishkind, an economist, in a recent conversa-
tion he had with Gov. Crist. Crist insisted that the people want
a cut in their property taxes, and Fishkind said, "Yes, and they
also wanted a high-speed train until they were told how much
it was going to cost." And then he said a very wise,'saying:
"Leadership is helping to explain and craft good policy, not just
saying 'the people want it.' "This applies, very much, to the air-
port situation. A lot of very loud people are saying that they
want Venice to stay as it is. However, city council needs to take
action, needs to take the bull by the horns and say, "We know
that a lot of people want Venice to stay as it is; however, the rev-
enue at the airport must be raised, and this is what we're going
to do." This is what I think they need to do take leadership in
their hands.


Immaturity. I was particu-
larly disappointed at the pub-
lic forum at the Venice Com-
munity Center. Those who
presented did a super job
explaining in a small time
period the factors that need-
ed to be analyzed in order to
present a complicated sub-
ject so many could gain a ba-
sic understanding. Their task
was comparable to learning
classical guitar in one eve-
ning. They did their job in an
exemplary manner, all of
them. The disappointment
came from those who spoke.
What I saw, for the most part,
was an example of immature
behavior with booing, thumbs-
down gestures and threats of
voting for others in the next
election. All of this because of
opinions, many based on
emotions and not on facts
regarding the problems at
hand. City council, the airport
advisory board and presen-
ters all want to make the right
decision for the good of the
city, the airport and all who
live and work here. In particu-
lar was the verbal harassment
of the mayor when he stated
at the meeting's end in
response to the request to
take no action until the snow-
birds return something to
the effect that government
works 24/7 andcanrnot take
vacation. Hurrah \for th
'tI


mayor. Too bad the many
immature people in the audi-
ence lacked the ability to
understand leadership and
responsibility. And another
thing: Even though I support
maintaining the golf course,
the reality is that the presence
of the airport will allow the
golf course to be there and
not the other way around.
Let's not forget the facts.
Best customer. I'm calling
about people selling their
own homes without profes-
siohal assistance. As a Realtor,
I encourage this, especially
for sellers who want to charge
more than fair market value.
"For sale by owner" is ab-
solutely an option with selling
real estate. And often, an
FSBO seller becomes a Real-
tor's, best customer because
they know it isn't as easy as it
looks. It is true that a Realtor
is not required to have a col-
lege degree, but most have
them. A career in real estate
usually follows a successful
business career. Did you
know that only 10 percent of
people who take the real
estate course pass the state
exam on the first try? Only 40
percent that take the exam
ever pass it. In order to retain
an active license, a real estate
professional must complete
continuing education cours-
es. And, in the state of Florida,


it is a third-degree felony to
perform real estate activity for
compensation without a real
estate license.
Forethought. I would like
to make a comment in re-
gards to "Premeditated." The
person who spoke the piece
ought to get the facts first. It
was in the paper afterward
that the state dropped the
charges against the two boys,
so therefore it wasn't premed-
itated. Also, in this country,
you're innocent until proven
guilty. The state dropped the
charges; that means they're
innocent. Don't jump to con-
clusions. You make yourself
look like an idiot.
Getting greener. When will
the Venice Post Office finish
its landscaping and fixing up
their planters? It's been un-
done for a long time. It looks
terrible. And how about some
weed control on the Venice
Avenue bridge? We have a
nice, pretty new bridge, but it
would be nice to have weed
control on it.

Crime prevention begins at home


BY KEN KLEINLEIN
CRIME SCENE COLUMNIST

Last Tuesday I looked out
the window and saw a black
vehicle leaving my driveway.
It was too far to away to see
the plate number and not
readable on my surveillance
equipment.
Later that morning as I was
driving to a meeting I saw the
car again. It was stopped on
the side of the road and a
white male white about 25, 5
feet 10 inches and 160 ponds,
wearing a blue shirt and
shorts, exited.
He left the motor running
and went to the rear of a
home. After a minute or more
he returned to the vehicle and
drove to a number of other
locations, where he displayed
the same behavior. I noted
the plate number and the
make and model of the auto.
This modus operandi is
consistent with burglars who
are ,looking to break into a
building, or are reconnoiter-
ing a location in order to
commit a future.burglary.
Before calling 9-1-1, I
approached the individual


and asked for directions,
which he readily supplied.
At that time I noticed an
FP&L sign displayed on the
dashboard. He was in fact a
meter reader for the power
company using his own vehi-
cle to conduct his rounds.
The incident got me to
thinking about what steps
people should take in order to
protect their homes, busi-
nesses and properties from
thieves.
Some precautions you can
take:
Cut or remove shrubs and
bushes around windows and
doors that could provide
thieves with cover while they
attempt to enter your home.
Do not leave property
strewn about in the house.
Mark valuables for identi-
fication.
Display a "Beware of
Dog" sign.
If possible, leave a locked
vehicle in the driveway with
the alarm on.
If you have a home alarm
system, activate it even if only
leaving for a short period of
time.
Leave a radio on whenev-


er you are not present.
Install devices that pre-
vent the opening of windows
and doors and the lifting of
sliders off their tracks.
Some locks can be open-
ed with a credit card or screw-
driver. Replace them or install
metal plates.
Get to know your neigh-
bors and watch each other's
property for suspicious activ-
ity.
Take down the plate
number and description of
suspicious vehicles and note
the occupants.
Install motion lights. Na-
tional crime studies have
shown that these devices are
the most effective low-cost
prevention tools available.
When leaving for an ex-
tended period of time:
** Stop all deliveries, or ask
relatives or neighbors to take
in what is left at your door or
driveway.
** Give your relatives or
friends a key and let them
know how to reach you.
** Mow and water the lawn
before you leave, and have it
mowed while you are away.
** Use timers on low-


wattage lights simulating
your usual patterns, and hook
up a radio to the timer.
** If financially feasible,
apply protective laminate to
your windows. FP&L pays a
substantial rebate for this.
Notify 9-1-1 if you
observe suspicious activity of
any kind.
The more deterrents put in
the way of criminals, the
more likely they are to move
on to easier pickings.
Congratulations to the
North Port Police
Department on a stakeout
operation that resulted in the
apprehension of two
teenagers as they were actual-
ly committing a burglary.
Further investigation re-
vealed they had committed a
number of other break-ins in
the past.

Ken Kleinlein, a former
detective with the NYPD
Special Frauds Squad, works
as a frauds and crime consul-
tant and information special-
ist with the Charlotte and
Sarasota sheriff's offices and

enforcement agencies.


Kentucky breathalyzer company subpoenaed


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

The Kentucky company
that manufacturers the
breathalyzers used in Sara-
sota and Manatee counties
has been subpoenaed by a
Florida court.
"The court has issued a
subpoena directing the man-
ufacturer to produce Intox-
ilyzer records including the
computer source code," Ven-
ice attorney Robert Harrison
said. "We have filed a motion


for an order to show cause
why they should not be cited
for contempt."
If that sounds familiar, it
should be.
The Intoxilyzer 8000 man-
ufacturer, CMI Inc. Ky., has
refused to comply with simi-
lar court orders before. CMI
even went to a Kentucky
court, which ruled that the
Florida courts did not have
authority to issue the subpoe-
na.
Courts here said that was
bunk they do have the


authority.
* "One of the courts is wrong
- can't both be right,"
Harrison said. "I'm going to
go ahead and ask for the
show-cause hearing."
Harrison claims that the
unreliability of the machine
casts serious doubt on the
reliability of the results.
About 400 DUI cases are in
a holding pattern in two
counties as a result of the liti-
gation, Harrison said.
The manufacturer has
steadfastly'refused to reveal


the software. It said showing
the software, or source code,
would reveal "trade secrets."
If CMI refuses to honor the
subpoena, it could be cited
for civil contempt and fined
for every day it is out of com-
pliance, Harrison said earlier.
This case has been going
on for at least five years.
Harrison said legal chal-
lenges to breathalyzer results
began back in the '90s.

1998 Venice High


volleyball team first


to reach the summit


BY DEBBIE KIEWIET
SPORTS EDITOR

All but two members of the
1998 State Champion Venice
High Schoolvolleyball team are
expected to be present for the
induction of the team into the
Venice Sports Hall of Fame at
Thursday night's banquet and
ceremony at Bogey's Rest-
aurant and Sports Pub.
Members of the 1998 vol-
leyball team, the first Venice.
High School team ever to win
a state championship title,
are: Kristen Batt, Jessica Boat-
ner, Tiffany Biziewski, Syren
Delaney, Kati Fishman, Court-
ney Francese, Kelly Kirby,
Danielle Laneve, Amy Miller,
Alicia Moralee, Monica Pie-
cuch, Alicia Radefeld, Katrina
Rico, Liz Rogers, Shannon
Ryan, Louisa Scopacasa, head
coach Brian Wheatley, and
assistant coaches Barb Ginn,
Milt Maas, Heather Moser
and Jose Velez.
Wheatley, who in 1998 was
in his fifth year as head volley,
ball coach at Venice, recently
recalled that year, which now
seems so long ago.
Record
"It was one of those
things," Wheatley said. "We
got really hot at the end of the
season. Kristen Batt (now on
Wheatley's coaching staff)
had 587 kills that season.
That's a record that will never
be broken at Venice High
Scl 6N6Ver.' She hit the baill
better in the back row than 90
percent of the kids in Florida
hit it from the front row."
Batt was named Miss
Gatorade Player of the Year for


the entire state of Florida that
year.
"We won our district, but it
was tough," Wheatley went
on. "We were playing Char-
lotte High School at Char-
lotte. They were our big dis-
trict rival. Back then matches
were two out of three with
regular scoring (points scored
only when serving). The
match was tight. Our Venice
High School gym at that time
didn't have air conditioning,
and we practiced without air
conditioning all the time. The
game went late, and we were
getting beat. Sometime dur-
ing the match, Charlotte's air
conditioning kicked off. They
weren't used to playing in a
non-air-conditioned gym,
but our kids couldn't tell the
difference. We went on to win.
"In the regionals, we ended
up playing a team from Clear-
water High School, which had
been our nemesis. They had
beaten us in the state cham-
pionship the year before. We
hosted the match at home,
and ended up beating them
pretty good.
"In the final, we played
George Jenkins High School
from Lakeland. They had
actually beaten us twice dur-
ing the year already. They
were one of the best teams in
the state at the time. In that
match, we used Batt as a
decoy. They concentrated on
her, and she only got two or
three kills. The rest of the
'ream stepped up, and we won
in three.
The first

really realized at the time

team to be inducted into the Venice Sports Hall of Fame.


what they did," Wheatley
said. "They were the first
team to win a state champi-
onship in Venice, ever: It's a
pretty amazing thing. It's like
the first person to climb Mt.
Everest or the first guy to run
the four-minute mile. As soon
as it was done, other people
realized they could do it, too.
It was a sparkplug for the
teanimsdown the road, not just
the volleyball teams but the
other teams on campus.
"We were always told a little
town like Venice could never
win a state championship. We'd


gone 40-some years without a
state championship. Nowin the
last eight or nine years, we've
had four."
Venice High School now
holds team State Champion-
ships in football (2000), volley-
ball (1998 and 2005) and base-
ball (2007), as well as runner-up
titles in volleyball (1997 and
2004), girls basketball (2005)
and wrestling (2005) .
"A state championship is the
highest event that a high school
athlete can ever play in,"
Wheatley said. "One percent of
all high school athletes get to


play in a state championship,
let alone win one. In 1998, we
were the first ones to get to the
top of the mountain."
Several members of the
1998 team went on to play
volleyball in college: Batt at
the University of Kentucky;
Biziewski, Flagler College in
St. Augustine; Rico, Pheiffer
University; in North Carolina;
-Millt "hizfgo StaTe.: Urlver-
sity; and Francese, Kirby and
Scopacasa, Broward Com-
munity College. Ryan elected
to attend the University of
Central Florida on a track


scholarship.
The Sports Hall of Fame
was initiated in 2003 to recog-
nize people who have left a
lasting impact on the local
sports scene. Other inductees
this year are long-time Venice

Details released on tax reform package


Statutory relief would include requiring cities and
counties to cut property taxes and cap future
property taxes. It will also almost certainly
include a constitutional referendum designed to
fix the Save Our Homes amendment.


BY BOB FLISS
STAFF WRITER

More details were released
Friday about the property tax
reform package that the state
Legislature will consider in a
special session that will begin
June 12.
In the meantime, a joint
Senate-House conference
committee convened Mon-
day to hear about a reform
program that should begin
with a statutory rollback on
local ad valprem rates.
Reform will also almost
certainly include a constitu-
tional referendum designed
to fix the Save Our Homes
amendment. This 1990s law
caps the increase in home-
stead property assessments
at no more than 3 percent a
year.
Senate President Ken Pru-


itt, R-Port St. Lucie, and House
Speaker Marco Rubio, R-
Miami, sent an e-mail to all.
legislators Friday afternoon
outlining a general strategy
for tax reform..
At this stage, the new plan
is short on numbers, particu-
larly concerning the effect
mandatory tax cuts would:
have on the budgets of local
governments. However, the
letter states that more details
should be released in the
coming week..
The Pruitt-Rubio letter
outlines a four-point strategy
for immediate tax relief that
could ,,b.e accomplished by
statute that is, a law passed
by both houses and signed by
Gov. Charlie Crist. Statutory
relief would include:
Requiring 'cities and
counties to cut property tax-
es. The exact level of these


mandatory cuts would favor
localities that have been con-
servative taxers and spenders.
A cap on future property
taxes, calculated so that
future government growth
can't exceed growth in per-
sonal income.
Benefits to all categories
of property taxpayers, includ-
ing owners of nonhomestead
residences and businesses,
who have not enjoyed the 3-
percent annual assessment
cap imposed by Save Our
Homes. As a result, each suc-
cessive year of the recent
Florida real estate boom has
seen owners of nonhome-
stead property shoulder more
of the tax burden.
Allowing local govern-
ments to circumvent the roll-
back but only with a unan-
imous or supermajority vote
of the governing board.

Affordability
Rep. Mike Grant, R-Port
Charlotte, a member of the
conference committee, filled
in a few additional details,
based on his recent conversa-
tions with the top House Re-
publican leadership.


The second phase of tax re-
form, a constitutional amend-
ment, will likely be onthe bal-
lot during 'Florida's new early
primary next January, Grant
said.
Voters will be asked to
revamp Save Our Homes to
create several tiers of proper-
ty tax relief. For example, 80
percent of the first $200,000 of
assessed value might be
exempt, then 70 percent of
the next $500,000, then 30
percent of the next $300,000,
with any assessed value more
than $1 million paying its full
assessment.
Also, Grant said that the
Legislature may be taking a
fresh look at how "affordable"
housing is taxed. This "would
make it based on an income
approach rather than a prop-
erty value approach," he said.
Holding the referendum in
January would give local gov-
ernments several months to
plan for their 2008-2009 fiscal
year budgets, Grant said. And
if the referendum failed, it
would give the Legislature its
entire 2008 regular session to
come up with something else.
Grant believes that a suc-


cessful tax reform referen-
dum will help clear Florida's
backed-up residential real
estate market. Save Our
Homes carries hidden tax
penalties for most homeown-
ers moving
within the '..


state. and at-
tempting to
establish a
new home-
stead. Essen-
tially, all the
benefits they
have accumu-
lated in their
old homes are
lost.


Grant


"I would say that if this
passes in January, you will see
a lot of realestate contracts
written with the closing date
of Jan. 1, 2009, depending on
whatever the effective date of
this would be." Grant said.

The catch
Grant estimates total
statutory and constitutional
tax relief will amount to
something in the neighbor-
hood of $20 billion statewide
over the first five years.
Consistently one of the more


aggressive tax-cutters among
House Republicans, Grant
said that earlier proposals
topped $40 billion in relief
over the same period.
"It's policy versus politics,"
Grant said. "It's what you can
get done and not every-
body will be happy. Not
everybody will think you have
gone far enough, and some
people will think it's gone too
far."
Grant also predicted that
localities will be required to
roll back their ad valorem
rates only to match the rev-
enue levels of fiscal 2006-
2007. Earlier Republican pro-
posals called for a rollback to
2000-2001 tax levels, roughly
matching the point when
Florida real estate prices
began a period of explosive
growth that has only tapered
off in the last year.
The catch here is that the
rollback won't be the same for
all localities.
The Pruitt-Rubio letter
stated that "those jurisdic-
tions whose taxes have grown
the most on a per capital basis
will be required to reduce
them the most."


Tax referendum to coincide with presidential primary


BY BOB FLISS
STAFF WRITER


Any constitutional referen-
dum associated with property
tax reform will be presented
to the voters Jan. 29, coincid-
ing with Florida's new, earlier
presidential primary.
Otherwise, don't start
counting your property tax
savings just yet.
Although more informa-
tion was released during a
joint House-Senate confer-
ence committee meeting
Monday, it's still hard to put
any numbers to the likely
impact of property tax reform
on homesteaders, part-year
residents and business own-
ers.
So, the full tale won't be
told until the Legislature con-
venes for a special property
tax reform session, scheduled
for June.12-22.
And that's more or less the
way the legislative leadership
wants things for now. Both
the House and the Senate
want to make sure that there's
some kind of philosophical
agreement about the shape of
property tax reform before
releasing a lot of numbers;
explained Rep. Mike Grant, R-
Port Charlotte, who is a mem-
ber of the conference com-
mittee.


"The Florida Legis-


presented to the voters to-
gether at no extra expense.
The Legislature voted to
imnove the primary up from
March during its regular ses-
sion that ended May 4. The
rationale was to give Florida
more clout in the presidential
selection process.
House Speaker Marco
Rubio, R-West Miami, and
Senate President Ken Pruitt,
R-Port St. Lucie, had agreed
upon the Jan. 29 date as part
of their ongoing process of
establishing a framework for
tax reform prior to the start of
the special session.
Other topics on the table
Monday filled in certain de-
tails within that framework.
For example, the reform
package is now likely to con-
tain a $25,000 exemption
from tangible personal prop-
erty tax. About 1.3 million
Florida businesses currently
have to pay this levy on "all
good, chattels and other arti-
cles of value" mainly office
and plant equipment. A
$25,000 exemption would
absolve nearly 80 percent not
only from paying the tax but
even having to file a return.
Gov. Charlie Crist paid a
* brief visit to the conference
committee Monday, having
just returned from a trade
mission to israel and Jordan.
Crist said he was "very opti-
mistic" that the special ses-
sion would be productive.


nature recognizes that Tier drops


there is a crisis in the
property tax system -
it's unfair, inequitable
and provides economic
disincentives for the
greater portion of the
population."
Rep. Mike Grant




"The Florida Legislature
recognizes that there is a cri-
sis in the property tax system
- it's unfair, inequitable and
provides economic disincen-
tives for the greater portion of
the population. We have the
outlines of a plan that will do
away with some of these dis-
incentives," said Grant. "But it
is by no stretch of the imagi-
nation perfect, because there
is no such thing as a perfect
tax."

'Optimistic'
Rep. Dean Cannon, R-
Winter Park, House confer-
ence chair, announced the
prospective referendum date
at the start of Monday's meet-
ing. Cannon noted that the
earlier date made sense be-
cause the presidential prima-
ry and referendum could be


Compared with the rather
frantic way in which tax
reform proposals were slung
about during the regular ses-
sion,, the leadership is being
deliberate about how it's
introducing new concepts
before the conference com-
mittee.
Last week, Rubio and Pru-
itt made a joint announce-
ment that outlined two phas-
es of property tax reform -
one to be achieved by statute,
the other by constitutional
referendum.
Both concepts would pro-
vide relief in "tiers." For exam-
ple, all local governments
would be subject to some sort
of statutory property tax roll-
back. But Cannon explained
that there would be a least
four levels, so as to reward
localities that had spent fru-
gally, while requiring serious
relief from localities that had
spent freely when real estate
values and, therefore, ad
valorem revenues began
rising rapidly early in this
decade.
The tier approach would
also figure in any constitu-
tional amendment to modify,
the 1990s-vintage Save Our
Homes law, which caps the
annual increase in assessed
value at no more than 3 per-
cent.


After 'about 12 years as
Florida law, Save Our Homes
has come under fire for effec-
tively creating two classes of
Florida taxpayers. Home-
steaders enjoy predictable
annual increases, but are


liable to lose their accumulat-
ed tax benefits if they relocate
to a new home. Meanwhile,
part-year residents and busi-
ness property owners have no
exemption and no protec-
tion from the double-digit


increases in assessments that
have followed Florida's recent
real estate boom.
A tiered approach to
homestead exemptions might
replace the current $25,000
exemption with a relief pro-


gram based on the actual
value of the home. For exam-
ple, only 20 percent of the first
$200,000 of a home's value
would be taxable. Conversely,
any value over $1 million
might be taxed at full value.

;'s work


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Robert Farrell makes arti-
facts.
He does it so well that the
Smithsonian Institution in
Washington, D.C., recently
purchased a silver salad set
for its permanent collection.
The salad set is a cultural arti-
fact representative of this
period of history.
"I grew up surrounded by
old things in a family house,"
he said. "Things that remind
you of people and events are
so much more than mere
objects.
"In college I developed an
interest in artifacts from an-
cient civilizations ... I was
intrigued with the ritual of
food preparation."
By the time he had earned
his master's degree in fine arts
from Temple University's Ty-
ler School of Art, Farrell was,
ready to create tomorrow's
artifacts today. The salad ,set
purchased by the Smith-
sonian is but one example of
the tabletop and jewelry de-
signs he creates in his Venice
studio.
; "I am trying to create arti-
facts from this time," he said.
"The art of silversmithing is
kind of dying. Everyone has
some silver but ... I am trying
to do something of our time."
Hand-fabricated from flat


sheets of sterling silver, the
one-of-a-kind set is a fine
example of the "marriage of
metal" inlay technique in
which the different metals are
precisely cut to fit together
like a jigsaw puzzle and then
soldered in place with silver
solder. When repeated in lay-
ers, the result is a piece of
metal with visual depth. That
piece of married metal is then
used to construct the finished
object. In addition to sterling
silver, Farrell used copper, 23
karat gold leaf and shibuichi
(a Japanese alloy of copper

"It would kill me to see
my work deteriorate.
Metal will be around
forever."

Venice artist



and silver). Farrell also uses
shakudo (a Japanese alloy of
copper and gold) in some
work. The finished "marriage
of metal pieces" became the
handles of the spoon and fork
that make up the salad set.
The speckled pattern of the
inlay resulted from the final
acid washing process. Entitl-
ed "Trellis," the set was pur-


chased by the museum for the
Renwick Gallery of the
Smithsonian American Art
Museum at the 25th annual
Smithsonian Craft Show in
April. It was selected for pur-
chase by Jane Milosch, cura-
tor of the Renwick Gallery.
Tools of the trade
Farrell works with a minia-
ture anvil, tiny but precise jig-
saw drill, an acetylene torch
and an assortment of hand
tools, some of which resem-
ble dental instruments. Ham-
mers and rasps also are used
at various stages of the fabri-
cation process.
The artist chose to work in
metal because of its durabili-
ty. Fiber art, paper art and
even ceramics deteriorate
over time or are broken.
"It would kill me to see my
work deteriorate," he said.
"Metal will be around forev-
er."
Most of Farrell's work is
one-of-a-kind, although there
are themes that flow through
his work and he will some-
times make several copies of
some pieces of jewelry, never
more than 50. He uses no
mass-production techniques
for any of his works.
The jigsaw is the primary
tool for his "marriage of met-
al" work and the hammer is
the key tool for what Farrell
refers to as "hammered inlay,

work," which also begins with
a flat sheet of silver. In that
process he covers the sheet
with silver solder before ar-
ranging pieces of other met-
als on the surface, which is
then reflowed with silver sol-
der. He then hammers and
anneals the layers until the
applied alloys are embedded
into the sterling sheet. The
resulting piece of metal is
then used to construct the
object, filed, sanded and fin-
,ished,
Objects
Making mostly utilitarian
objects., Farrell said he felt a
void, as though there was no
narrative content.
That led to his current
series of house forms.
"Homes are important to
me," he said. "The simple
house shape evokes different
things to different people."


These decorative pieces
vary by their trimmings. One
with grass across the front
represents the garden and
nature to Farrell. One with a
canoe was created to repre-
sent birth and arrival and a
third, which is framed by a
rounded bar, symbolizes se-
curity and protection.
"The Smithsonian is the
first place I showed these
pieces," he said. "Some look-
ed at the boat and saw a jour-
ney and some thought the
grass was fire."
At times my tabletop
pieces are inspired by jewelry,
and at times thdie opposite,"
he said .
Hisjoumey
Although inspired by his
Venice Junior High School
teacher, SandiWatkins, Farrell
took a circuitous route from
Venice to Venice and finally


appreciating all that home
means to him and to his art-
work.
In the Class of 1978 at
-Venice High School where hisl
mother was a teacher, he
dropped out in the middle of
his junior year.
"I was a fat kid and had
problems at school," he said,
"I drank and smoked pot for a
year."
But he loved school so he
straightened out, .graduated
from New Directions (a char7
ter school) and then went to

transferring to the University.

I The difficult birth of modern

SAmerican journalism


FROM NAPSA


During the Civil War, modern
newspaper reporting was born on
both sides, with patriotic correspon-
dents anxiously providing optimistic
reports of battlefield carnage that
their readers were eager to believe.
Truth was often an incidental item.
Now a new book 'examines the
reports from The New York Times
and the Charleston Mercury, com-
paring history's record of the conflict
to the fact and bias each newspaper
shared with their readers.
The book, "The Words of War"
(History Publishing Company,
$24.95), looks at each newspaper's
coverage of "the enemy" and the
drive to sharpen public opinion,
encourage support of troops and to
keep readers informed of daily
events.

Hang on to your sanity,
ladies and gentlemen. It's
time for News from Ecine-

When the U.S. Supreme
Court ruled in favor of the
city of Hookseet, N.H., in its
firing of four employees for
gossiping, public and pri-
vate employers were ecstat-
ic.

appeal and all that garbage
and then fire them, just in
case they sued us. Now we
don't need to pretend we're
reconsidering firing them
when we aren't."
The People's Committee
for the Right to Gossip in the
Workplace, which was the
brainchild of Seattle worker
Laura Fehl, formed its
Ecineville chapter this week
and at hundreds of busi-
nesses, city and county
offices people are gossiping
constantly to protest the
Supreme Court ruling.
In response, employers
are firing people at an


unprecedented rate. People
are being fired and escorted
from businesses before the
paperwork is even finalized.
In one incident at Mise
En Garde Tape Manu-
facturers Inc., employee
Sarah Von Vaughn, a mem-
ber of the PCRGW who had
been gossiping for days,
went to the ladies room.
When she attempted to exit,
she realized the door had
been bolted shut from the
outside. Vaughn was able to
climb out the ladies room
window. She stood dazed in
the parking lot for a few sec-
onds, then her personal


belongings, including her
coffee cup, came flying out
of the ladies room window
and landed at her feet.
There was a note attached:
"You're fired."
As of today, 53 businesses
are closed because there are
not enough employees to
keep the places open.
Well, this is Ted "I'm a
reporter, I'm a reporter"

President Tina Werple-

"This means that we can
now fire anyone we want for

When Werplewamp was
asked if private and public

JOE GIORGIANNI
HUMOR COLUMNIST


When I first heard that
President Bush was being
asked to help out with a jock-
ey problem, I wondered why
in the world he would be
involved with underwear. I
mean, doesn't he have
enough on his plate without
having to worry about his
jockeys? They might seem a
bit too tight sometimes, but I
doubt that he would be will-
ing to give them up.
Then, I read the rest of the
story and learned that it was
not jockey shorts that were on
his mind; rather, it was the
prime minister of The United
Arab Emirates, who was in
trouble with the jockeys. And
I thought those guys never
wore underwear.
It turns out, however, that I
was wrong on both accounts.
Apparently, Sheik Moham-
med bin Rashid al Maktoum,
affectionately called "Mo" by
Mr. Bush (I'm guessing the
sheik has never seen a Three
Stooges movie), is in a bit of a
bind with a federal legal sys-
tem that has accused the
good sheik of using little kids
as jockeys to race his camels.
It seems that "Mo" is press-
ing our esteemed leader to
the point that relations be-

tween our country and his are
being "strained." The sheik
described it as not being
helpful to the "good old boy"
relationship one that keeps
you and me paying more than
$3 for a gallon of gas.
Now, not only does the
prime minister want help in
getting the federal courts off
of his hump, so to speak, but
he also says that the camels
can sense that something is
wrong and they are not run-
ning as they should. Or, put
another way, the two-hump-
ers are only running on one,
and the one-humpers aren't
running too well, either.
Further, "Mo" has indicat-
ed that those young boys he
has wearing his colors on the
backs of his camels are gain-
ing too much weight as a
result of eating too much of
an American diet. "Super-siz-
ing," says the sheik, is not in
the Arab vocabulary. I
"We feed our jockeys a
well-balanced diet of fig muf-
fins and fig juice," he said.
"What more could they want?"
It should be pointed out
that this is the same country
that as recently as this past
year was successful in acquir-
ing control of certain U.S.
ports. Dubai, a country that
has the same leader as the
United Arab Emirates, in spite
of the perceived threats of ter-
rorism and a huge outcry of
negativism from the Amer-
ican public, managed to
make the buy, thanks to the
Bush administration.
Fortunately, it, the UAE, is
in the process of selling the
operations to a U.S. firm,
mainly because, as the sheik
said, the American people
don't understand the impor-


tance of camel racing, or to
use their vernacular, camel
humping.
The lawsuit, by the way, is
premised on a law written
way back in 1789, known as
the Alien Tort Statute, which
provides federal courts with
jurisdiction over certain civil
cases involving foreigners. I'm
not certain, but I would bet
that they didn't even race
camels back then, let alone
wear underwear.
Now comes the interesting
part of the story. Apparently
-there are many Emirates fam-
ilies who own homes in
Miami, and as anyone knows,
Miami, also known as the
polyglot of the world, is a
place where camel racing has
become a regular event on
the strip just outside Joe's
Crab House. Or, is that crab
racing outside ... ? Whatever.
The point here is this:
When Mr. Bush ends his term
as president, and all the brush
is cut on his ranch, he will
need something to do. I'm
betting that camel racing
might just be on his radar
screen as a neat way to im-
press all those folks with oil.
His biggest choice would
be one hump or two. But
should Karl Rove follow him
to the desert, they could start
a racing empire and utilize
some of the smaller 12 million
illegal immigrants as jockeys.
The sheik has told him that a
Brazilian had already express-
ed interest. Mr. Bush wanted
to know how many zeros were
in a Brazilian.
I don't know aboutyou, but
I'm heading for the 2-dollar
window.

Mermaid helps save life in the ocean


GRAPHIC COURTESY OF NAPSA
The ocean truly is "part of our world," says Ariel, in "The Little
Mermaid." You can help keep the oceans clean.


FROM NAPSA

When it comes to saving
life in the ocean, one new
spokesperson may be right in
her element.
Ariel from Disney's "The
Little Mermaid" is appearing
on new public service an-
nouncements that share in-
formation on how to care for
the sea.
More than half the nation's
population lives along the
coast, while many others visit
the ocean each year, yet few
Americans are aware that the
health of the oceans is cur-
rently at risk.
'Nor do most know that


people can play an important
role in keeping the oceans
clean, no matter where they
live. Marine debris, such as
fast food packaging, cigarette
lighters / butts/packaging,
beverage containers and dis-
abled or waste fishing gear,
enters the ocean directlywhen
discarded near the coast or
indirectly via rivers, streams
and storm drains that ulti-
mately flow into the ocean.
Discarded plastic bags,
which comprise more than 50
percent of dangerous marine
items, are consumed by ma-
rine mammals such as sea
turtles and whales, leading to
choking and starvation.


Thousands of seals, sea
lions, whales, dolphins and
sea turtles also become en-
tangled in plastic debris and
lost fishing lines and nets; this
destroys habitats and causes
skin lesions, ulcerating
wounds, suffocation and death.
The PSAs feature Ariel and

"The good news is that the
problem of trash in our
oceans is one that can be
solved," said Lori Arguelles,


president and CEO of the Na-

'As this campaign points out,
each of us can make huge dif-

of howwe dispose of our trash.
The ocean truly is 'part of our
world' and the characters help
make that connection, espe-
cially to children."

Silversmith Robert Farrell uses simple tools such as hand planes in the process of creating his
one-of-a-kind pieces of silver jewelry and tabletop accessories.


Left, these sterling silver vases are
embellished with shakudo, a
Japanese inlay of copper and gold.
The vases were fabricated from flat
sheets of silver combined with
other metals in a marriage of metal
technique.

WORK fromPagelB
of Art at Temple University,
Farrell chose Tyler in Phila-
delphia, where he earned his
master's degree in metalwork
in 1989.
Even before completing
his master's degree, Farrell
had work accepted in some of
the top art and craft shows in
the country and even design-
ed a piece for Fortunoff.
Slimmed down and with
such early success, Farrell has
been making a name for him-
self across the country ever
since. For a few years he trav-
eled the country to show his
work in a variety of shows.
S:Today, he only sends his work
to eight or nine of the most
prestigious shows. His one

frustration is that students are
not as exposed to art as he
was.
"The 30s crowd comes to
shows in their business suits
and look around but they just
don't get it," he said. "They
'equate functionality with a
lower price tag. They won't
buy a $2,500 salad set but
they will buy a $2,500 hand-
made coat."
They do buy his jewelry
though and, with works in the
Smithsonian, theVictoria and
Albert, the Mint Museum in


Charlotte, and other major
museums around the world,
there is obviously a market for
his tabletop and other work.
Farrell's jewelry includes ear-
rings priced from $140 to
$350 per pair, bracelets at
$800-$900 and pendants for
$250-$450 per piece.
"The jewelry is what has
kept me alive all these years,"
he said.
Living in his family's 1948-
era home inVenice and inter-
national recognition is a
bonus.
"How many people can
make a career of doing what
they enjoy?"

2007 musical season ca es to a close


FRAN VALENCIC
SOCIAL COLUMNIST

Time to

say goodbye

Johanna Whitmire Fin-
cher, Ryan Gage, Wesley John
Schumacher and the Venice
Symphony received a long-
standing ovation. The app-
lause signaled the end of a
spectacular 2007 musical sea-
son.
For the final concert, Sch-
umacher, musical director,
chose "Gettin' There" as the
theme. Selections included
"Light Cavalry Overture,"
"Star Wars Medley" and "The
Polar Express."
Gage performed "Moon
River," and Fincher sang, "The
Wind Beneath My Wings."
Maestro Schumacher joined
Beth Morrison, Leslie Ann
Jones, Susan Dictor, William
O' Har4 and Harry Phillips in
a lively rendition of the
Clarinet Polka.
When Fincher performs, it
is like listening to angels. Her
__ mom, Gayle Heskett, plays
the bassoon with the sym-
- "ony. The whole time Finch-
er sang, her mother never
stopped smiling. The pride
she generates warms the
heart.
When Fincher and Gage
performed "Time To Say Go-
odbye," their rendition deliv-
ered a perfect ending to a per-
fect season. Bravo until Dec-
ember.
For season tickets to the
Venice Symphony, call 488-
1010. 1
Season finale

Bill Millner and the Venice
Concert Band said farewell to
the season by featuring many
musicians from the band.
Rick Louis and Lew Gowan
played "Double Concerto."
This trumpet duo is usually
hidden behind other musi-
cians. Phil Hohmann per-
formed "Concerto For Clar-
inet" while the percussion en-
semble got the audience
moving their hips to "Brazil."
If you closed your eyes, it felt
like carnival time.
The audience gave Sarah
Rideout-Slight a warm ovation
for "Climb Every Mountain"
anc 'Hey, Look Me Over."
The evening's selections
included, "The Legend of Zor-
ro." Millner and the band
always include patriotic songs
like '"America The Beautifuh"
Many of the band's musicians
are veterans as are many in
the audience.
Of course, Milner sent the
audience off with a few stories
to tickle the funny bone until
next year.
The Venice Concert Band
concert schedule for next sea-
son includes performances
on Nov. 12, Dec. 10, Jan 28, .
Feb. 25, March 31 and April
28. Be sure to mark your cal-
endars.
Thanks to the musicians
for a great season.

The special person of this
week is Ryan Gage. He is the
musical director of the Ch-
urch of the Nazarene. His
voice touches the soul and his
gentle spirit seems to uplift
people he meets.
When Gage performs with
the Venice Symphony he
blankets the audience with
joy
Ryan Gage is one of the
music ministers who make
Venice great.,
