Both the airport master plan update and its land
use plan will be sent back to consultants and the
Airport Advisory Board to align the plans and
provide more clarity.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Unresolved issues put the
skids on adopting the Venice
Municipal Airport master
plan update, and its compan-
ion land use plan that pro-
poses possible future devel-
opment.
Although the master plan
has been under review for a
year and a half, city council
on Tuesday, June 12, listed a
series of concerns and sent
them back to the airport's
chief consultant, MEA Group,
to rework
The plans will then go
before the Airport Advisory
Board for review before com-
ing back to council.
Councilman John Sim-
monds was the lone vote
against reworking the plan,
not because he opposed the
changes brought up, but
more on procedural grounds.
He wants direction for
whatever changes evolve to
come from the city manager
since the Airport Advisory
Board doesn't have authority
to direct the airport's consul-
tant. Other council members
seem less concerned with


how the message gets to the
consultants.
City Manager Marty Black
set the stage for council's
action by sending a memo to
council June 11 calling for
additional changes.
Chief among them:
address the lack of clarity in
explaining the impact of the
master plan on the Lake
Venice Golf Club, to what
extent safety contours will
encroach on the course and
the impact on future city rev-
enue.
He also wants a better
explanation of the same devi-
ations granted in previous
years by the FAA from its lay-
out guidelines concerning
airport safety areas and pro-
tection zones.
The city anticipates the
FAA to grant some local devi-
ations from its general layout
plan, as it did in past master
plan updates.
"We don't think that is
unreasonable," Black said. "It
will still impact the golf dub."
Council members also want
the land use plan to reflect the
city's desire to maintain festival
grounds, something that was-
n't included:


SLIU PHOTO B JEFF T4v,.'. j[c3 .are, ,.n.r.:g: olir.:.rni
Venice Mayor Fred Hammett and city council listened to a presentation Tuesday on the Venice
Municipal Airport master plan.


The expectation is we will
need five to 20 acres set aside,
Black said.
"The FAA needs to know
there is land set aside for that,
and (should be included in
the plan) so the public doesn't
think the festival grounds are
going away," he paid.


The land use plan, created
by a group of area citizens
and aviation experts, called
for industrial development
along the airport's east side.
That's not what developers,
responding to a city directed
request- for-proposals,
brought before residents in a


public meeting in April. They
envisioned a hotel and mari-
na to the east.
Development near the
Lake Venice Golf Course was
entirely absent in the land use o
plan.

Layoffs are never pleasant
But some seem more un-
pleasant than others, de-
pending on the people they
affect.
In March, when the city of
Venice faced some hard deci-
sions to become more cost
effective with staffing, 17
positions were eliminated.
Although some of those posi-
tions were vacant, budget
cuts did result in the layoff of
six employees.
Three of those facing layoff
were in the nonbargaining
group managerial, super-
visory or administrative em-
ployees not covered by a
union contract. Purchasing

The other three people laid

labor agreement with the

job protection not available
to nonbargaining employees.

That did not come into
play for two people who were
laid off; they who were
already at one of the pay
plan's lowest grades as
interns, and relatively new to-
the city ranks.
The finance department
position of utility billing spe-
cialist, however, was also
eliminated. Sharon Middle-'
ton had held that higher-
ranking job for almost 10
years.
After examining' her op-
tions, she chose to bump info
a position as records clerk at
the police department, for
which she was deemed to be
qualified -,- a voluntary
demotion resulting in a pay,
cut of 58 cents per hour.
That move displaced
Patricia Lewman, who was
home recovering from
surgery but scheduled to
return to work soon. Lewman
was informed about being
bumped by Middleton and
advised to decide whether she
wanted to bump someone
with less seniority.
Although she had been a
police communicator before
becoming a records clerk,
Lewman was not eager to

tion with the possibility of

So she opted for the job of

Unlike most of her class-
mates, Venice High senior
Whitney. Walker went to
school on Senior Skip Day.
I But that's not surprising:
From her first day of kinder-
garten through her senior
year at VHS, Walker did not
miss a single day of school.
But the effort earned her
no special honor from die
school or the school district.
She imagined her good-
news story would have been
shared with parents and stu-
dents at graduation. But as
she accepted her diploma,
not one word about her per-
fect attendance efforts was
said.
Candy Millington, VHS
principal, was not available
for comment, but her assis-
tant, Anita Bloch, said the
school never makes an-
fiouncements like that at
graduation.
"We just have never done
it," said Bloch.'
Walker's father sent Mill-
ington an e-mail prior to
senior awards night request-
ing that his daughter's effort
be recognized.
"She didn't even respond
to the note," said IWhitney's
mom, Diana Walker.


Pat Peveril], ]head of social
work for Sarasota Counry
schools, said it's up to individ-
ual schools to make policy
about honoring perfect atten-
dance.
"I personally think it is fab-
ulous," she said.
Peverill said that one of the
the big things the county
looks for in students is
engagement with school.
"Obviously she was active-
ly engaged,"'; she said, "and
that is the most wve can hope
for."
Seven more years
Walker attended the Early
Childhood Center because
both of her parents were
working.
"I think that is when she
got all ofher colds and sniffles
out of her system," said
Diana.
Diana sednt her and her sis-
ter, Courtney, to school with
the sniffles and didn't make a
big deal of it when they were
growing up.
"They were both willing
children and looked forward-,
ed to going to school," Diana
said. "Not going was never an
issue."
Walker attended Laurel
Nokomis School and got a
certificate for perfect atten-
dance when she graduated

"That is what encouraged

But, her fellow students
didn't appreciate Walker's

"They would say, 'Why are

Whitney. "I felt that if I wasn't

Barry's erosion only looks bad on Turtle Beach


BY RICK BARRY
PELICAN PRESS
Tropical Storm Barry may
have left little "cliffs" at the
water's edge and roughed up
some of the rest of the new
sand dredged onto Turtle
Beach, but county project
supervisors say that is not
only expected, but desirable.
Project Manager Curtis
Smith said contractors could-
n't run their bulldozers out
deep into the water to impart


the long, gradual slope for
which gulf beaches are
famous, so they must pile
sand more 'heavily and
steeply onto the beach than
the ultimate designed slope.
They rely on wind, tides
and currents and a few big
storms to do the rest.
"Especially during the first
couple of storm seasons, we'll
see the sand shift markedly-
the. storms will grab it and
help smooth it out," Smith
said.


And, except for the removal
of a few fence posts and one
more study, that broadened,
new and improved south
Siesta Key beach is complete,
and there for the basking.
Hundreds of new, native
coastal plants are coming in
nicely and those 900,000
cubic yards of sand dredged
from a shoal offshore are
where they ought to be. The
final chapters of the $12 mil-
lion project will take place out
of the public view.


Checking
Surveyors will double
check the dimensions and
slope of the beach. Divers will
examine the cleft in the shoal
left by the dredge and make
sure sea life was not harmed
in the course of widening 2
miles of beach 200 feet, on
average, said Smith.
Others will check the
plantings sea oats, railroad
vine, sea purslane, five
species in all to make sure
they are indeed flourishing.

Reef mitigation ready to rock'n' roll


SUN PHOTO BY BOB MUDGE
Venice Police Officer Ruth Terry runs a traffic operation Tuesday at the intersection of U.S.
41 Business and U.S. 41 Bypass.


With beach renourishment complete, the city
prepares to build 7.3 acres of reef off Venice
beaches to reduce future sand loss.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
Imagine this: placing
27,000 tons of limestone rock,
one rock at a time, side by
side, in 18 feet of ocean. That's
106,000 rocks.
That's the plan for the 2007
Venice Beach mitigation reef
project.
The project is a stipulation
of the beach renourishment
project undertaken in 2005,
part of a larger 50-year agree-
ment with the Environmental
Protection Agency entered
into in 1994, which calls for
beach renourishment every
10 years.
The EPAs final certification
of the 2005 renourishment
triggered the reef mitigation.
The Army Corps of
Engineers paid 75 percent of
the last renourishment (cost:
$11 million), but the city can
count on the EPA for only 47
percent of the $4.2 million
reef mitigation project.
The rest of it will come
from the city's 1-cent sales
fund and other sources.
City council on Tuesday,
June 12, authorized Nancy
Woodley, city engineer, to


award the bid to a joint ven-
ture of Center Contracting
Group, near Orlando, and
Gunderboom Inc. out of
Sanford with a contract for
$4,192,461.
The new reef will require
limestone rock; no concrete
or rebar is allowed. And no
uncontrolled dumping over a
barge. Only a single layer of
rock is allowed; no stacking.
Each three-square-foot
rock some smaller, some

larger will be individually
placed one to two feet apart
within a larger cell of rocks.
Each of the five sites will be
made up of about a dozen
cells.
The city and its consul-
tants have identified five sites
totaling 7.3 acres spread out
over a 10-acre site where the
reefs will be placed.
State officials expect work
on the reef to begin in July
and be completed within six
months, butWoodley said she
may have to seek an exten-
tion.

School district purchases done


by e-mail raise eyebrows


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER

A recent purchase of car-
peting for the entire Sarasota
County School District at a
price of $1.4 million got Board
Member Caroline Zucker's
attention.
Zucker did not vote for the
expenditure at a recent board
meeting; no board member
did.
The school board does not
vote on purchases considered
routine, or that are -done on
an annual basis.
According to Pat Black,
director of materials manage-
ment, routine purchases -
such as carpeting, fuel and
food are primarily state
contracts, shared bids with
other entities, increases in
purchasing limits within a
budget or exempt purchases.
In the budget
Board members do, how-
ever, vote on the budget those
purchases are included in.
According to Black, routine
purchases are budgeted with-
in the. district's annual bud-
get, which is done at the start
of each school year.
Also, no money is spent
without it actually being
available.
There are situations where
additional money is needed
from outside the budget to
fulfill a request. When that


happens, the additional mon-
ey must be approved by the
school board.
Moreover, items like the
ActivBoards purchased in
November 2006 are voted on
by the board before purchas-
ing.
How it's done


The proce- .
dure for mak-
ing routine
purchases, as :"
requested by
the 2001school
board, is that -
when routine .
items are to
be purchased,
an e-mail is Zucker
sent to the


board members at the time of
the purchase.
According to Black, routine
items used to be placed on
the board's consent agenda
for a vote.
Routine purchases, which
can range from $25,000 and
up, are not made public at
board meetings. However,
listings. can be read in the
board members' public e-
mail folders.
Black said another reason
for the e-mail announce-
ments for routine purchases
is a matter of efficiency.
According to a document
provided by the scl'ool dis-
trict, "Putting all requisitions
over $25,000 ,on the agenda


can' delay the purchasing
process up to 3 weeks and up
to 5 weeks during months
with one School Board meet-
ing."

The price of carpet
Director of Facility Services
Jody Dumas has the task of
maintaining all the flooring
for the district.
"It's ($1.4 million) very
good pricing. We couldn't get
it on our own," he said.
According to Dumas, there
are 7 million square feet of
flooring in the district, and
each floor or carpet is budget-
ed to be replaced every 10
years. The $1.4 million is to
re-floor 1/10th of the school
district.
Changing the system
At the June 12 board work-
shop, three of the five board
members Carol Todd,
Zucker and Board Chair
Frank Kovach discussed
the way routine purchases are
made.
"I'd like to have further dis-
cussion on it (the proce-
dure)," Zucker said.
The board members could
not discuss changing the pro-
cedure during the workshop,
according to Zucker, because
all five board members need
to be present.

If it seems as though area
ponds, even stormwater re-
tention ponds, have begun to
appear more attractive, don't
put it down to imagination. It
really is happening.
Thanks to Peter and Julia
Seyffart and other enthusias-
tic environmentalists, ponds
are becoming more attractive.
And water quality is improv-
ing at the same time.
The discovery by a Mon-
tana fisherman several years
ago that he was getting more
bites near an island on a 30-
acre-wide lake led to the
invention of a floating wet-
lands system of man-made is-
lands.
According to the Seyffarts,
they have been found to
increase water clarity by,
removing phosphates, copper
and zinc carried by stormwa-
ter from lakes and ponds in
Southwest Florida.
A two-year study funded
by the state of Montana re-
vealed that floating man-
made islands provide a com-
plex growth environment for
a variety of microbrials that
remove specific nutrients. In
doing so, they heighten water
clarity. Adding a pump to a
floating island makes the
process more efficient.
The Seyffarts established
Creative Aquascapes last year,
and installed 40 koi ponds in
the yards of private homes.
Together with the Sierra Club
and the Healthy Gulf Coali-
tion, they began examining


Bay Preserve at Osprey expected to become official


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Bay Preserve at Osprey,
dedicated last January as a
historic district by Sarasota
County, is expected to be
approvedd for zoning as such
'laterthis month by-the Board
of County Commissioners.
Consisting of a neoclassi-
cal brick home, a boathouse,
pier and a four-bay brick
garage on 4.38 acres, it was
purchased by the Sarasota
Conservation Foundation to
serve as its headquarters. The
site will also contain a natural
history museum, an artist-in-
residence program, a natural-
ists' hiking trail and a kayak-
and-canoe launch.
The foundation obtained a
$6.6-million grant in 2005
from the Florida Commun-
ities Trust for the purchase.
The property had been
known as the Burrows-Mat-
son estate. The house was
built in 1913 and the other
buildings were added in the
following 18 years. Its first
owners were Dr. Waters Bur-
rows and his wife, Elsa.
After construction of their
home was completed, they
bought 515 acres on South
Creek in Osprey and built a
ranch. In 1955, they donated
that land to the county in the
memory ofElsa's father, Oscar
Scherer. It is now the site of
Oscar Scherer State Park on
U.S. 41.
Subsequent owners of the
home were Richard and
Cornelia Matson, who sold it
to the foundation.
The estate is on Palmetto
Avenue, just south of Historic
Spanish Point and on Little
Sarasota Bay. The property
will add to the 273 acres of
protected land on the bay's
ecological corridor. That
includes Palmer Point Park at
the northern tip of Casey Key,
the Neville Preserve and
Historic Spanish Point.
Once a flourishing fishing
village, Osprey has seen its

access to the waterfront di-
minish over the years. Resi-
dents have long complained
to anyone who will listen
about their loss. Among those
who have are the foundation
and the county commission-


ers.
They were partners in
obtaining the $6.6-million
grant for the Burrows-Matson
estate as well as a second one
for $5.2 million for an 11-acre
waterfront parcel on Black-


bum Point Road in Osprey.
The second grant helped
to pay the $16 million pur-
chase price for what is ex-
pected to become a public
boat ramp and community
recreation facility.


the floating island concept as
a way to eliminate algae that
form naturally in retention
ponds.
Earlier this month, they led
a team of volunteers in in-
stalling the area's largest float-
ing island in Sarasota's Gil-
lespie Park.
A typical floating island is
made of a raft bor a frame
that supports a mesh on
which plants are grown.
Sealed sections of plastic pipe
or tubing create buoyancy.
Because man-made float-
ing islands can be construct-
ed deeper in the water than
natural ones, they provide
extra water volume. This,
according to Peter Seyffart,
reduces the velocity of water
flow and enhances settling.
"Fish populations and salt-
water plants, including sea
grapes, mangroves and cab-
bage palms, benefit, while red


tide may be reduced because
the islands remove nutrients,"
Seyffart said.
The Seyffarts are planning
the installation of a floating
island at an old marina on
Sarasota Bay. Brackish water
in the boat basin created by
stormwater run-off from
buildings in a residential
community has destroyed,
plantings along the water's
edge.
Their effort will involve
working with existing land-
scapes to beautify the boat
basin. They expect to present
six plantings designs to the
residents.
"What's really surprised us
about these islands is that
they are not limited to wet-
lands plants," Seyfart said.
"They're good for habitat,
they reduce nitrate concen-
trations and heavy metals.
And they do indeed beautify."

Country's ethanol production affecting food prices


BY BOB MASSEY
STAFF WRITER

If it seems as if you're pa
ing more for food these da'
it's because you are.
On the average, food pric
have shown a 4-perce
nationwide increase fro
April 2006 to April 2007, a
cording to the U.S. Depa
ment of Labor's Bureau
Statistics.
And experts predict i
going to get worse.
"That's in the 'food
home' category," said Da
Richardson, economist wi
the LBS. "That's typically th
food you buy at the groce
store, as compared to t]
food you would buy outsit
the home, such as at a resta
rant."
But some of the issu
causing the changes in tf
"food at home" category a
leaching into other areas
well, creating what Richar
son called "a kind of a crisis
Statistically, the high
increases in food prices are
eggs (18.6 percent), veget
bles (8.L percent) and break
(7.2 percent), followed close
by flour (6.9 percent), fresh
baked goods (6.4 percent
and fruits (6.1 percent).
But raw statistics seldo
tell the entire story or pr
dict the alarming challenge
facing the beef and poult
industries, which barely a]
pear on the chart, at 4.7 pe
cent and 4.6 percent respe
tively.


The writing not
on the wall
It's difficult to pinpoint
yy- why prices of some food
ys, types have increased, Rich-
ardson said.
nes For example, items such as
bread, rolls, muffins and
m other baked goods cannot be
ic- traced back to their source;
xt- there is the additional buffer
f of the manufacturing compa-

t's ny.
Perhaps the additional
at costs are due to increases in
at the price of raw materials -
th flour, eggs, sugar, etc. but
he there could be other unrelat-
ed reasons driving the prices
he up.
de Not so with other items
Lu such as vegetables and fruits,
which have both demonstrat-
es ed significant price increases.
es But these may be temporary.
re LBS economist Sandy
re Schneider, in charge of the
as fresh fruit statistics, believes
d- the increases in her category
s are most likely due to meteo-
st rological issues.
"It could be the weather
a-
a- impact on crops that
seems to be biggest indicator
ly this year," she 'said. "A lot of
h- fruit pricing is supply-based.
it) Since the beginning of this
year, we've shown a huge
m increase in citrus due to the
freeze in California."
es The category with the
aT most significant spike eggs
P" is really the least signifi-
r- cant, Richardson said.
C- "Egg prices rise for a num-
ber of reasons," said BLS


FOOD PRICES

cant use in the "food at home" category (food purchased at the
grocery store), based on the Consumer Price Index from April 2006

economist Nathan Amble, in
charge of the egg statistics. "In
general,'they are very volatile,
with frequent changes in sup-
plies and demand."
Production of eggs has
been down since December,
he said, and the economy has
been expanding over past few
years. On Wall Street, prices
for eggs and egg products are
running very high and
have been for the last couple
of years.
"Eggs respond very quickly
to changes in market," Amble
added, citing the further issue
of shelf life. "Because eggs are
perishable, there are frequent
fluctuations from month to
month."
But, Amble said, there is


another factor in egg prices
that is having a far greater
impact one might say a
critical one in other areas
as well.
It's not in the animals
themselves, but in what they
eat.
The emerging crisis
Poultry feed is often made
of corn. And that's a problem
- because corn prices have
risen nearly 70 percent be-
tween September and Feb-
ruary.
The reason: the increase in
demand for ethanol biofuel.
According to the U.S.
Department of Agriculture, 18
to 20 percent of the nation's
total corn crop will be devot-


ed to the production of eth-
anol. That number is expect-
ed to jump to 25 percent by
2008.
"With the increase in eth-
anol production over past
one-and-a-half years, corn
prices have gone up, and
poultry farmers have to com-
pete with fuel producers to
use corn for feed."
The worse news is that
corn is also a staple in cattle
and pork feed as well.
"There's a kind of a crisis in
meats," Richardson said.
"They're using such an amount
of corn in making ethanol,
there's not enough for livestock
feed, so feed prices are going
up. That's the big story."
"To some degree, there's a
lot of speculation with food in
general," said LBS economist
Mark Bowman, "when you
hear that the price of feed has
doubled."


"Poultry feed is about two-
thirds corn; as a result, the
cost to produce poultry -
both meat and eggs has
already risen about 15 per-
cent due to corn prices," says
the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology's Technology Re-
view.
Everything made from
corn is affected, and increases
are already being passed on
to the consumer.
A list of items made from
corn syrup, which is a stan-
dard sweetener in a dizzying
variety of foods, will also
make the list.
But the effects are much
more widespread.
Adding to the concerns
about corn prices is President
George W. Bush's goal to have
the United States producing
35 billion gallons of ethanol
by 2017.

lower position with less sen-
iority for Vis to bump, and no
other vacancies for which she
would qualify.
In this case, it was just
coincidental that Alicia Vis is
blind.
No matter
Vis has an excellent memo-
ry and the advantage of some
of the latest technological
equipment to help her learn
new information and tasks.
Besides the complicated city
hall switchboard, she uses the
computer, copy and fax
machines. She has even done
microfilming.
Through clerical training at
city hall back in the 1990s,
Alicia became certified by the
Florida Division of Blind
Services. That enables
prospective employers to
receive state-funded assis-
tance with certain special
equipment and workplace
modifications that will facili-
tate her success in any new
job.
What city hall customers
noticed and commented
most about Vis is her'natural
friendliness and professional-
ism in dealing with people.
Her sharp sense of hearing,
combined with a memory for
voices and even footsteps,
enable her to identify individ-
uals approaching her desk.
Having a quick wit and good
sense of humor also have
helped to put people at ease,
even when they came in
upset about something.
But none of that matters
when the layoff and bumping
process is initiated.
No hard feelings
City Manager Marty Black
said that neither Vis' disability
nor her performance could be
considered as trumping the
union contract.
'Actually," said Black, "the
federal laws barring all kinds
of discrimination were writ-
ten to assure that everyone is
treated the same. And that's
what the union contract does
- it treats everybody the:
same, with seniority and.pay
grades as the deciding ele-
ments."
Alicia's employment with
the city ends June 14, Flag
Day.
Unfortunately, it will not be
a banner day for her, because
she and her husband Ken
have become very dependent
on the salary and benefits she
has enjoyed with the city.
"When I went to work full
time for the city," Vis said, "I
gave up my Social Security
disability payments and
Medicare coverage. Now I
have to see if I can get them
back.
"I would really rather get
another job," she said, "than
just to be unemployed not
only for the income, but also
so I can contribute more to
Social Security. Since I haven't
had many years of employ-
ment, that benefit does not
pay very much."
Although her first choice
would be to go back to work
for the city if an appropriate
opening comes up, she is will-
ing to try anything.
If she can't find a paid posi-
tion, she will look for some-
thing to do as a volunteer. She
will not be sitting at home
feeling sorry for herself.
"I don't have any hard feel-
ings against Mrs. Lewman,"
said Vis. "She has every right
to look out for herself in a sit-
uation like this.
"I just hope an opening
eventually comes up within
the city that she will want as a
promotion. Then maybe they
would consider re-hiring me
at the switchboard. Of all the
jobs I've had, that's the one I
love the most."

takeoff and landing statistics
that estimated 172,835 (in-
cluding touch-and-go's) in
2005 and up to 276,000 by
2025.
Councilman Bill Willson
asked if they were over pro-
jections to lay the ground-
work for future requests for
federal funds. If not, they're


scaring the heck out of the
public, he said.
"If the plan doesn't meet
your needs, we're glad to go

more," said Lisa Waters, MEA
Group president.
The master plan and land
use plan should be ready for
review by city council again in
60 to 90 days.

Leave utility
markers alone
With various construction
projects taking place inVenice,
numerous small flags mark
underground utility lines
placed in the ground to pre-
vent digging or disturbing
existing pipes and wires.
The locations of the utilities
are marked with small flags or
paint in the public right of way
or easement where the utili-
ties are located. Some of the
utility easements appear to be
on private property.
To prevent loss of services,
no digging should take place
within 2 feet of these utility
location markers.
It is unlawful to remove
these markers. Once the work
is completed in the area, the


contractors will remove the
flags.
The flags or paint are color
coded to show what type of
utility is buried in the area.
Green: sewer lines
Purple: reuse or reclaimed

Staub considers running for sheriff


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

County Commissioner
Shannon Staub is giving seri-
ous thought to running for
another office next year the
job currently held by Sheriff
William E Balkwill.
"People have come and
asked me to consider it,
because there's such a mess
(in the department)," Staub
said. "They've got 67 posi-
tions open now, including
deputies, the 9-1-1 commu-
nications area and the jail.
Morale is terrible. I've had so
many people tell me they
don't need a law enforce-
ment officer, they need a
leader and an administrator
a CEO."
Staub does not believe a
background in law enforce-
ment is crucial to the posi-
tion.
"Sheriffs' departments are
now becoming big business,"
Staub said, "and with the
number of employees and
diverse activities that go on,
not only do you need to know
how to deal with unions -
which got in two years ago,
during Balkwill's time but
.also with budgets; how you
can control them and still
provide the services you pre-
side over."
Balkwill disagreed.
"You do need a back-
ground in law enforcement,"
Balkwill said. "Because you
are the ultimate head law
enforcement officer of the
agency. It's not just a manag-
er's job. You've got to know
'how to deal with laws that
have, come up. You need to
draw on your experience in
working past cases to help
police officers make deci-
sions."
Balkwill said he has not
decided whether he would
run for re-election in 2008.
"It's still too early," Balkwill
said. "I want to get through
this budget process, and once
that's out of the way, then I'll
go ahead and make an an-
nouncement."
Like Balkwill, Staub de-
clined to formally declare for
the job, but said she would be
up to the challenge. She
added she had put the word
out on her interest and "got a
lot of response to it."
Republican David Gustaf-
son, a candidate four years
ago, has filed with the super-
visor of elections to run for
the job. He couldn't be
reached for comment for this
story.
Undecided
Staub is also considering
running for re-election as
county commissioner a
post she has held for 12 years
and said she will make her
final decision which job she
prefers sometime in August.
"The saying that always
comes into my head is, 'the
sign of a good leader is know-
ing when to leave,' Staub
said. '"And I'm debating: Is it
time to leave the commission,
is it time to leave public ser-
vice or is there an opportunity
somewhere else in public ser-
vice?"
Staub expressed disap-
pointment in Balkwill's hiring
of Darrell Stinger as the cur-
rent jail administrator, rather
than doing a national search
for someone who had done
the job before and was more
"innovative and forward-
looking."
"Instead, he took one of his
majors and put him over
there," Staub said. "To my
knowledge, (Stinger) has not
had experience with running
a jail, and that's what I would
have liked to have seen."
Balkwill defended Stinger's
adherence to policies as qual-
ities that made him a worthy
jail administrator and ex-
pressed frustration the com-
missioners never brought up
the issue before.
"One of my big things is


give people an opportunity
from within the agency,"
Balkwill said.
Capacity
Balkwill said Stinger a


17-year veteran on the force,
holder of a master's degree
and an former lieutenant
colonel in the Air Force has
attended several "jail schools"
and workshops over the past
few years, successfully com-


pleting education in that area.
The problem, he said, was
not with the administration,
but with the fact that the jail
itself is inadequate.
"We're at 1,058 (inmates)
today," Balkwill said. "And the

jail only holds 1,050."
Staub believes the jail's
problem was one of adminis-
tration rather than capacity.
"Things just aren't work-
ing," Staub said. "If you talk
with people who work there


now or have left, it's just prob-
ably not in as good a, shape as
it should be. It needs to be
more accountable, more effi-
cient. It needs to reorganize."
Balkwill said communica-
tion was lacking between him-


self and the commissioner.
"I wish she'd come over
and talk to me," Balkwill said.
"She's never come over to talk
to me about any of these situ-
ations, which surprises me."

How clean is your favorite restaurant?


Most Floridians don't think twice
about restaurant inspections when
they plan an evening out. The size
of the steak, freshness of the seafood or the
price of the meal are what usually come to
mind when making dinner reservations.
That might change if Florida altered its
restaurant inspection program to include
posted reports on the latest health reviews.
Other states, particularly North Carolina, do
that.
Right now, customers have little to go on
- other than appearance when they
decide which restaurants are the cleanest
places to eat. Too often they might get the
wrong impression that the bigger the
restaurant the better, or that a chain restau-
rant is cleaner and better maintained than a
smaller establishment. A quick scan of the


latest inspections for a couple of restaurants
give us cause to question that assumption.
The Department of Business and
Professional Regulation is in charge of
inspecting state restaurants. The goal is to
make at least two visits a year to check for
cleanliness and proper handling and prepa-
ration of food. Reports are posted on the
DBPR Web site.
There are two concerns.
First, not everyone has the Internet, and
those who do typically would not sit down
and call up a restaurant report before they
leave for an evening meal, or make a visit
during a short lunch break.
The other concern is that the reports give
so little information. When we tried to check
a couple of local restaurants, the only infor-
mation available was the number of infrac-


tions. There were no details about what
inspectors deemed to be a problem, and no
information on when, or if, the problems
were corrected.
Normally after an inspection restaurants
fix the problem immediately. For that rea-
son, it might seem unfair to post a report on
the restaurant that could stand until the
next inspection, which could be months
away.
Still, we believe there should be an easier
way for the public to know how well the
restaurant they have chosen scores with the
health inspectors. .
Perhaps, as they do in North Carolina, the
restaurant should receive a grade based on
100 points. A 95 or better might be consid-
ered good and alleviate any fears of dire
consequences from eating there. A slightly


lower score might cause you to have sec-
onds thoughts, and a score of 80 or lower
might have you changing your reservation.
The score would also be posted in the
front of the restaurant for all to see before
they are seated.
There would be no greater incentive for
keeping things clean and neat than knowing
a poor score will be posted for customers to
see for months before a health inspector
returns.
To be fair, however, a return visit from the
inspector should be scheduled within the
next week, before a report is posted. Or,
maybe that return visit should be unan-
nounced to see if the restaurant took the
warning seriously?
Either way, the public should have easier
access to restaurant inspection results.

A huge problem that has
been identified in youth
today is obesity. The numbers
are staggering for the increase
in the percentage of kids who
are obese or overweight,, and
the number has been on the
nse.
We all know that this has
come about because the kids
of today are much more
sedentary than they' were
only a decade or two ago.
Nintendo, Xbox, MySpace.
corn and the like have
replaced the bicycle as the
entertainment of choice.
Little League is down, as
are other sports. You rarely
see kids at a ball field or, for
that matter, out playing any-
thing.
Many thought this techno
world might make them lazy
but would at least make kids
smarter; however, the evi-
dence isn't in the test results.
The other problem is that
over the years the schools
have cut phys ed and recess.
To combat this trend our state
Legislature decided it was
time to get physical educa-
tion back in the elementary
schools.
If students have PE four or
five days a week they likely
will burn a lot of calories and
be less obese. That makes
sense and seems like a great
goal. Of course, it also comes
with a big cost.
The irony of all of this is the
Sarasota County School Dist-
rict, in an attempt to balance
the budget, has decided to
eliminate physical education
in the high schools. So, maybe
students won't get obese until
they are 15.
Does this make you
scratch your head?

ly beat the income tax.


The YMCA does not waste
any time making its facilities
even better. Not only does it
have the new Caf6 Amore
open, but it is also making
plans to expand the mens
locker room that was under-
sized when it was built. We
hope some bigger, deeper
lockers that work come with it.
The sauna, nicknamed Las
Vegas, and the steamroom,
nicknamed South Beach, are
working well.

Nazi, Lynn Wark, still finds
new exercises to torture my

she tortures us on the ground;

I goofed when listing those
people who have given so
much to make the Venetian
Waterway Park such a suc-
cess. One person who has
speared headed moist of the
projects for years has been

recent success was the arbor-

Mr. Gorton sent me a note
saying he thought I was right
on about Gulf Coast Com-
munity Foundation of Ven-
ice's emphasis on Sarasota.
He commented that Sarasota
has a good foundation al-
ready.

Have received a lot of
newspapers and haven't been
able to mention them.
Our fabulous business
writer, Roger Button, brought
me an Evening Telegraph
from North Hamptonshire,
England. It had lots of color
and a nice amount of interac-
tive things with its readers.
Isabel DeWit brought me a
paper that served the White
River Junction area of Ver-
mont and an adjoining area
in New Hampshire. Had a
great pet feature.
Barbara Scott brought in
The Mountaineer, which is a
three-day weekly in Waynes-
ville, N.C. It had an interesting
story about how they were
instantaneously sending tick-
ets to the courts via e-mail.
Frank and Peg Drab, who
always give me papers,
brought in the Bronston Daily
News, which had great pro-
mos for the Web. They also
had a Springfield News Leader
that had the new narrower
page, which is the happening
thing around the country.
That paper has always had
great color, and we even stole
an idea from it to sell color by
the inch so that small adver-
tisers could afford color.

The post office landscap-
ing is nearing completion.
There is some painting of the
planters that had to be fixed
from skateboarder damage.
They have to be protected
from that before the planting
can be finished.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Waving flags show American spirit


Editor:
Flag Day is a day for all Americans to celebrate and to show
respect for our flag.
Our flag is a symbol of our country's values and traditions,
and it exemplifies our commitment to freedom and equality
for all. It serves as a daily reminder of this nation's accomplish-
ments and dedication.
The brave members of our armed forces carry Old Glory
with them as they defend our democracy around the world,
and its folds drape the tombs of our distinguished dead. The
flag is a badge of honor to all.
The Marine Corps League Auxiliary has presented more
than 50 certificates of appreciation to area business that are
displaying the American flag. We want to thank them for their
patriotism and support of our country.
The cost of displaying our flag is an additional expense for
them, especially here in Florida where our sun makes it neces-
sary to replace them at least four times a year. Some large flags,
like at Perkins Family Restaurant, DeSears and Matthews-
Currie Ford, cost more than $300.
Not all flags were that large. One company with a small flag
said, "See, someone did notice." We did. Thank you.
This year we were unable to go through our communities to
thank all the private citizens who also proudly display our flag.
Hopefully, next year we can do that again, but we want all of
you to know that your country and armed forces recognize
your effort and want to say thank you.
I know when I drive around our community I feel so proud
when I see our flag flying. There is no other nation in the world
that can compete with the freedoms we hold so dear here in
the United States.
I fly Old Glory 24 hours a day along with the Marine Corps
flag, in loving memory of my Marine, Gary Douglass, who
loved and honored this great country of ours.
God bless America.

See the light,
save money
Editor:
Having completed the
master conservationist course
at the Florida House, we were
discussing what people could
do to help conserve electricity
that would be quick, painless
and rewarding. It was our
opinion that a good place to


start was to replace, where
applicable, the incandescent
bulbs in our homes and busi-
nesses with compact fluores-
cent lamps.
Advantages of the CFL are
it only consumes approxi-
mately 30 percent of the
wattage required to operate a
standard incandescent bulb,
and it does not emit nearly


the heat of the incandescent
bulb, thereby reducing the
amount of air conditioning
required to offset heat output.
Additionally, you can ex-
pect the CFL to last up to five
times longer. They are avail-
able at most stores where
light bulbs are sold.
So, what does this all mean
in savings? Data available at
the Florida House indicate
that if each household in the
state of Florida were to re-
place just one 75-watt incan-
descent bulb with an equiva-
lent CFL, the annual saving in
kilowatt hours would amount
to more than 500 million.
Based on an average cost
per kWh of 8.5 cents, total
annual statewide electrical
cost savings would amount to
$43 million dollars. Reduc-
tions in carbon dioxide and
carbon emissions would be
the equivalent of removing
64,000 vehicles from Florida
roads.
These environmental and
economic savings are avail-
able to us by merely replacing
one 75-watt incandescent
bulb with a compact fluores-
cent lamp. The data are there.
All it takes is for us to take this
one simple step.

It's not that
kind of wall
Editor:
During a recent debate of
Democrat presidential hope-
fuls, New Mexico Gov. Bill
Richardson made a ridiculous
comment I have heard on
many occasions. He referred
to the proposed wall at our
border with Mexico as a


Berlin-type wall.
That statement could not
be much dumber or further
from reality. The Berlin Wall
was, of course, erected with
the purpose of keeping peo-
ple from getting out of East
Berlin. A wall at the Mexican
border would keep people
from entering our country
illegally.
Although the vast majority
of people entering by that
route are good, hard-working
folks, the fact is that 20 per-
cent of our federal prison
population is made up of ille-
gal immigrants.
That's the good news -
who knows how many future
terrorists may have come in?
Allowing unknown people
to enter our country is an
open invitation for another
Sept. 11.

Thanks for a
job well done
Editor:
Our family would like to
thank all at the Venice Gon-
dolier Sun for the wonderful
Our Town article written
about our grandson Navy
Seaman Matthew W. Hicks in
Africa and his fellow soldiers.
We're very proud of the
troops and their mission
accomplishments, and our
prayers are with all of them.
Thank you.

Venice hoteliers have reservations


"It will put us out of busi-
ness," said a worried spokes-
person for one of the nicest
lodgings in town, one with an
excellent location. "This has
been the poorest season we
have had in years."
Like others questioned,
this manager did not want to
be quoted. When I asked why
not, I received two answers:
"We don't need this kind of
publicity," and "I have to live
with these people."
Several hotels and motels
confirmed this had been a
very poor season, but were
not sure why. One person
reported, "We were not fully
booked this season. Usually
we have 12 good weeks a year
and the rest of the tine it is
pretty slow."
Guesses included "red tide
reports last season" and "the
fear of hurricanes." Winter is
not hurricane season, but
perhaps tourists don't know
that.
One spokesman, for the El
Patio Hotel downtown, said a
new hotel should not bother
them.
"We have small, inexpen-
sive rooms and serve a differ-
ent clientele," he told my
associate.
One person expressed
doubts that a hotel at the air-
port would do much for


"Main Street" businesses.
"Most resort hotels have
shops associated with them,
and people shop there. At a
resort hotel people come to
enjoy the beach, golf or what-
ever and eat at the hotel's
restaurants."
I mentioned to one owner
that the chamber of com-
merce expressed support for
the idea and wondered had
he, as a chamber member,
been asked his ideas.
"No," was his complete
answer.
Hot dog bites
Recently there has been
comment on the Lucky Dog
diner near the hospital, par-
ticularly its color scheme. I
used to patronize that spot
frequently and wish the new
owners every success.
I am not too keen, howev-,
er, on the paint scheme and
even less happy to find out
that relatively new "overlay
district" for Business 41 has a
"palette" of colors that are
acceptable, including, evi-
dently, a mix of several on one
building.
In checking on this with
the city, I find that the new
rules for this area, not just for
colors, are not as stringent as
those for East Venice Avenue.
These "more flexible" rules
were approved by city council
and I don't recall much dis-
cussion about the rationale
,for moving away from what I
feel has been a successful and
attractive model in the
Venetian Gateway District.
I think some of this change
came from the views of folks
like John Osmulski, chair of
the city's planning commis-
sion.
Osmulski has said in a
number of public meetings,
Including the Envision Venice


planning sessions and com-
mission meetings, that he
thinks sticking to the
Mediterranean architectural
and design standards is "bor-
ing," or words to that effect.
He has urged, successfully
evidently, approval of other
kinds of architecture and
design features.
I assumed he was speaking
of discrete neighborhoods.
For example, there was a
development planned (since
dropped) that was to have a
"Charleston" theme, he refer-
enced. If I am not mistaken, I
believe mixing styles in a
given area is also possible,
although a horrible idea.
Beside the aesthetic mis-
takes that might be and are
already being made, this
move away from Venetian
design is a marketing night-
mare.
Venice is a "brand" tied to
Mediterranean architecture
and design since John Nolen's
plan. It works. It is a national
model for urban planners.
We have not very knowl-
edgeable laymen imposing
their ideas about changing an
identity that is highly success-
ful. Stop, think and reconsid-
er. Remember what hap-
pened to Coke when it
screwed with its brand?
City council should revisit
this pattern of change and tell
the public why Business 41
and other areas slated for
redevelopment should not
follow the successful criteria
used on East Venice Avenue.
This is one of those ideas
that kind of sneaked through
without much public discus-
sion or scrutiny. Let's take a
closer look at these standards
and preserve our brand and
identity.

Double coverage is costing money


Cut here. I read about how Venice may cut police and fire
jobs. I keep wondering and asking why both a fire truck and an
ambulance respond to a 9-1-1 call. For years after I moved
here, if you had a fire, you sent for a fire truck, and if you had a
medical emergency, you sent for an ambulance. Now they both
respond. This has to be costing the taxpayers a considerable
sum. Is there some kind of new ordinance that makes this nec-
essary? If so, shouldn't that be looked into instead of cutting
jobs? The lawmakers are mandating lower taxes and the city
will have to make some tough choices.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Fire fighting is done by the Venice Fire Department,
while ambulance services are provided by Sarasota County. The two
agencies say the dual coverage cuts response times when emergency
calls are vague or it turns out additional services are necessary.


Quiet now. Thank God
school is over, so we can wake
them up at 10 a.m. We are sick
not mentally) senior citizens
who need our sleep in the a.m.
We do not appreciate the jazz-
ing up of your old cars at 7 a.m.
On background. I have a
suggestion. I am very dis-
turbed that Venice has turned
into such an angry town. The
people who seem to be mak-
ing people the angriest are the
developers, the Realtors and
the people who run our city
government or county govern-
ment, specifically in Venice.
I'm so shocked that so many
people don't even know names
and backgrounds of these
developers. I know there is one
specific name in town who,
when I moved here five years
ago, people said, "Watch for
this man's name." I saw this
man's name and picture in a
brochure, and I was alarmed at
how he was portrayed. He
gives much money to the com-
munity, so they love him, but
apparently he has kept quiet
on moving his funds around,
therefore we don't know where
his money goes all the time. I
would love it if the editors at
the Gondolier Sun would look


into things like this and also do
a story and a breakdown on
our leaders, the ones who
make these decisions on all
this development I would like
background on all these peo-
ple and their affiliations with a
lot of these developers who
come into our town.
Too much. OK, enough
already with this Indian base-
ball team. We know they won,
congratulations. Great job for
Craig Faulkner and the guys
themselves. But to find it
everyday on the front page, on
the back page on the sports
section and on the TV and
everywhere else it's annoy-
ing, it's too much. Let these
kids get back to school and
learn, which is what we the
taxpayers are paying for.
EDITOR'S NOTE: School ended
for seniors the day after the cham-
pionship game, for the other team
members three days later.
No help? I'm a Venice resi-
dent and would like to com-
ment on something that hap-
pened last night at Venice
Little Theatre. My mother and
I went to see a show, and at the
end of the show there was an
automated announcement
that there was an emergency


and we had to evacuate. I
noticed that there was nobody
from the theater helping peo-
ple evacuate. I believe the fire
department was very slow in
coming over. I don't know the
extent of the fire, but it could
have been a real disaster. At
the beginning of the show,
there was an automated
announcement about emer-
gency exits; but when the last
announcement came on near
the end of the show, everybody
thought it was part of the show
and people were very slow to
react. I think the Venice Little
Theatre needs to be a bit more
proactive about situations like
this because it could have
been a real disaster. They obvi-
ously need to have people who
are trained in how to attend to
something like this.
EDITOR' NOTE: As we reported,
the "smoke" was an effect from the
production of 'The Rocky Horror
Show" on Stage II.

Communities help


police catch burglars


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Venice police praised the
residents of Bay Indies and
Bird Bay for helping them
catch suspected burglars in
those communities.
"Those two cases are per-
fect examples of how we de-
pend on the community's ob-
servations to help us enforce
the law," Venice Police Lt. Tom
McNulty said.
The arrests of the suspect-
ed Bird Bay burglar and the,
Bay Indies burglars have a
common denominator.
In both incidents, the sus-
pects were spotted by resi-
dents who then notified po-
lice.
"We have a very proactive
police force; our guys are
always going out and looking
for criminals," McNulty said.
"But the communities assist-
ing us is of great value."
McNulty said VPD works
with communities to help
fight crime.
"We've had an ongoing
relationship with Bay Indies,"
he said. "VPD does not stand
alone we are part of the


community."
McNulty said part of the
service VPD provides for
homeowners are safety work-
shops.
"We will come in and
speak to homeowner associa-
tions and businesses about
how they can make their
homes and businesses less
likely to be victimized," Mc-
Nulty said.
Police think they got the
right man when June 4 they
arrested Tameriam P. Mel-
adze, 26, 400 block Altair
Road, Venice, in Bird Bay, and
charged him with armed bur-
glary.
The action also stopped
when they arrested the two
suspects in the Bay Indies car
burglaries last month.
"No more burglaries," Mc-
Nulty said.
He also said the Bird Bay
and Bay Indies burglaries
were not related.
Still waiting for a solution
is a string of downtown bur-
glaries earlier this year.

POLICE BEAT


Hammer time
leads to arrest
At 1:35 p.m. June 11 Venice
police officers responded to
Sal & Tony's restaurant, 545
South Tamiami Trail, regard-
ing an aggravated assault.
The suspect left before offi-
cers arrived, but witnesses
and victims were able to ob-
tain an accurate tag number.
An investigation revealed that
the suspect was driving a
motor vehicle that matched
the tag number given by the
witnesses.
Further investigation re-
vealed that the registered
owner, Patrick J Durbin, 52,
matched the description of
the white male suspect who
threatened two Sal & Tony's
employees and one Publix'
employee with a large ham-
mer.
The suspect eventually fled
the scene. As the victims
attempted to document his
tag number, he stopped his
car, put it in reverse and drove
toward the victims, who had
to move to avoid being struck.
Police officers contacted
Durbin at his residence, of
200 block East Colonia Lane,
Nokomis. During an inter-


view Durbin made several
incriminating statements and
a hammer was recovered
from inside his car during a
consensual search.
Durbin was arrested with-
out incident.

LEGAL NOTICES


Police offer tips for



home security


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER


Following a series of recent
robberies in Venice-area gat-
ed communities, Venice Po-
lice Officer Daniel Whittaker
offers recommendations for
improving home security.
"If you are concerned
about the security of your
home, the Venice Police De-
partuent _wdo periodic se,
curity checks when you are
away," said Whittaker.
The resident must fill out a
form at the police station to
initiate this security check.
"They will also do a free-
walk-through of your home
and give you security hints,"
he said.
Among the security steps
police recommend are:
A dead-bolt lock on all
exterior doors.
Keeping plantings around
homes to a maximum of 3-6
feet in height to allow police
to see into the home.
Motion detector lights.
Locks on slider doors, or
insert screws at the top of the
outside slider track and screw
them in far enough that the
door will slide, but cannot be
lifted out.
Keeping garage doors
down and locked at all times.
Locking car doors in the
driveway and in the garage;
keys should never be left in
the ignition.
Leaving lights on with
timers when the home is
vacant. Leave a radio or TV
playing.
Engraving your valuables.


VPD will lend an engraver to
city residents.
A home alarm system.
Video surveillance cam-
eras.
Double front doors are
very easy for burglars to open.
Install slide bolts at top and
bottom of doors to prevent
break-ins.
A wall safe rather than a
floor safe.
Inventorying and pho-
togra6phg valuables.
Stopping mail and news-
paper delivery when you're
away.
Burglars know where
homeowners hide valuables:
freezers, closets, shoe boxes,
purses in closets, drawers.
Pick a different place.
Your home computer
should be shut down unless
you are actively using it. Com-
puters that are turned on can
be used in identity theft.
Your credit cards should
have a photo and signature
laminated on them.
Never give out any per-
sonal information over the
phone.
Utility companies are
permitted to work on cables
or equipment 24 hours per
day. If you hear or see a work
crew at night, turn on your
flood lights and call the
police. They will check to be
sure it is a utility company
working.
VPD's nonemergency num-
ber is 486-2444. Call 9-1-1 in
an emergency.

Gas siphoned out 'of boat


STAFF REPORT


Rather than pay more than
$3 a' gallon, thieves stole
about 9 gallons of gasoline on
May 27 out of a boat at the
Freedom Boat Club.
William Johnson of the
boat club said that someone,
during the hours of 7 p.m. to 7
a.m., climbed aboard one of
his vessels and stole fuel from
the boat.
According to the police
report, Johnson found a
bucket from another boat
and a small siphon hose lying
on the sidewalk near his busi-
ness.
The vessel the gas was
stolen from had an 8-10 gal-


ion tank.
Fuel was siphoned out of
the tank and nothing else was
disturbed or missing. Due to
the location of the theft, no
fingerprints could be collect-
ed.
Jim Dinovo, an employee
of the boat club, said this is
the first time an incident like
this has happened in the
- more than two years he has
worked there.
Johnson said that in the
last two weeks he and other
employees have been finding
beer cans and other evidence
that someone has been on
their boats during the night.
Police have stepped up
patrols in the area.

Area forestry program 'outstanding'


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY


For the second consecu-
tive year, the Sarasota County
Urban Forestry program has
earned a top statewide award.
Tuesday, it was named
Outstanding Urban Forestry
Program at the statewide
Trees Florida conference in
Palm Harbor.
Last year, the county re-
ceived the Tree City of the Year
Award at the annual confer-
ence.
Both awards were present-
ed to Urban Forestry Manager
Demetra McBride by Trees
Florida, a coalition of repre-
sentatives from the Florida
Chapter of the International
Society of Arboriculture, the
Florida Urban Forestry Coun-
cil, the Florida Division of
Forestry and the University of
Florida Extension.
The Trees Florida 2007


awards are presented for
"outstanding efforts to plan,
plant and protect urban and
community forests through-
out Florida." The Urban
Forestry division of Public
Works was particularly recog-
nized for its outstanding peo-
ple, projects, techniques, ed-
ucation and outreach and
management of natural re-
sources with special regard
for Florida's urban forests.
Trees Florida Chair Mi-
chael Conner said that Sara-
sota County's green infra-
structure programs focusing
on the use of the urban forest
as a bio-utility was the deci-
sive factor in selecting the
county program for the
statewide honor.
Recent Outstanding Urban
Forestry Program award re-
cipients included the cities of
Plantation, Hollywood and
Marco Island.

Quest for County



Cup trophy ends


BY DEBBIE KIEWIET
SPORTS EDITOR


Venice's hopes of winning
the 2007 Central Sarasota
County Little League County
Cup trophy ended with the
Lions' 8-6 loss to the Dodgers
Tuesday night. The Venice
Lions Monday night defeated
the Reds 4-0 to advance to
Tuesday night's matchup with
the Dodgers. The Dodgers
advanced by beating out the
Venice Dentists Monday,
which left the Lions the only
Venice team still in the dou-
ble-elimination tournament.
Rhett Dinka struck out four
for the Lions with Flynn
Angley coming in for relief in
the fifth inning and throwing
three strikeouts.
The Lions got two runs in
the first inning on an Angley
double that scored Tyler
McKenzie and Evan Ober-
meier. McKenzie got on with
a passed ball, and Obermeier
singled. The Dodgers got one
runner home in the second
and three in the third on- a
three-run home run.
Obermeier homered in the
bottom of the third to cut the
Dodger lead to 4-3. Ryan
Dinka evened the score on a
Dalton Trischler double to left
field in the fourth inning.
The Dodgers edged out in
front 5-4 in the fifth on an RBI
single. Two Lions runners


were ruled out on a contro-
versial infield-fly call in the
bottom of the fifth. With two
outs, the Lions' Frank Hol-
comb singled, sending Ryan
Dinka home to tie the game.
Alex Masella got home on a
passed ball to give the Lions a
6-5 lead.
A two-out, two-run Dod-
gers home run, followed by
another homer dimmed the
Lions' hopes of a victory.
Obermeier walked in the final
inning, but the Lions were
unable to score and ended
,their season with an 8-6 loss
to the Dodgers.
Lions 4, Reds 0
On the mound for the
Lions Monday night was
Obermeier, who pitched all
six innings, striking out 11
and giving up three hits. The
Lions had only five hits
Monday night: Trischler 2-3;
McKenzie 1-3,2 RBI; R. Dinka.
1-2, 1 RBI; D. Dinka 1-1.
The Lions had three runs
in the fourth inning and one
in the fifth. Frank Holcomb
and Dalton Trischler got on
by errors in the fourth.
McKenzie hit a single to right
field scoring Holcomb and
Trischler, and a Ryan Dinka
base hit scored McKenzie.
Dan Dinka led off the fifth
with a base hit, advanced to
second on an overthrow, and
scored on a ground ball to


first.
Two younger players on
the Lions team made a couple
of good plays on defense in
Monday night's win. Mc-
Kenzie threw a runner out at
home plate from center field,
and Dave Holcomb made two
last-inning outs at second
base.
After getting a bye in the
first round of the County Cup
tournament, the Lions beat
the Red Sox and Englewood
Herald-Tribune before drop-
ping into the losers bracket
with a loss to the Yankees
Saturday night.

Venice High School is look-
ing for a new girls basketball
coach for the 2007-2008
school year with the loss of
George Stritz, who held the
head coaching position for
the last two years. The Lady
Indians were 14-10 last year.
"I'm hoping they will stay
with the program and with
the coaches I had underneath
me," Stritz said. "We worked
hard to get this program
turned around, and I think it's
going in the right direction
now." His assistant coaches
were Ann Ross, Don Remo
and his daughter Alicia Stritz.
Stritz, who was an off-cam-
pus coach and did not teach
classes at Venice High School,
is relocating because of his
work. A district sales manager
for Voortman Cookies, Stritz
said Tuesday that his work is
taking him to North Carolina


where he will oversee all of
North Carolina and part of
South Carolina. His wife, a
registered nurse at Venice
Regional Medical Center, will
be looking for a new position
in the Raleigh-Durham area.
They no longer have children
in school.
Stritz coached junior varsi-
ty girls basketball at VHS for
three years in the late 1990s
and coached the varsity girls
at the Out-of-Door Academy
for two years before taking on
the head coaching job at
Venice. Until he gets settled in
North Carolina, he will not be
looking for another coaching
job for at least a year, Stritz
said.
What he will miss most
about leaving Venice are the
kids. "I don't think I could ever
replace the girls I had here,"
Stritz said. "Venice kids are
great kids. There's nobody
else like them."

Practice under way for


the All-Star tournament


BY DEBBIE KIEWIET
SPORTS EDITOR


Players on the Venice 9-
and 10-year-old All-Star Little
League teams were an-
nounced Friday, and practice
is already under way this
week. Under Coach Tom
Grubbs and Manager Terry
Tritschler, the Nationals have
been holding morning and
evening practices to get ready
for a doubleheader Saturday,
June 23.
The Nationals All-Stars will
play North Port at 9 a.m. and
Sarasota at noon Saturday,
June 23, at Twin Lakes Park in
Sarasota.
The Venice Americans All-
Stars will playWC. Sarasota at
6 p.m. Friday, June 22;
Englewood at 9 a.m. Saturday,
June 23, and East Sarasota at 6
p.m. Monday, lune 25.
The 11- and 12-year-old
AllStar teams will be an-
nounced Friday. Their tour-
nament gets under way
Friday, June 29.
The Nationals. Tritschler
.said, are shooting for back-to-
back-to-back district cham-
pionships. The Nationals All-
Stars have won the district
title the last two years. Re-
turning from last year's cham-
pionship team are Mark
Arnold and Ben Reid, both 10.
"We're as good as we were
lastyear," Arnold said.
"Maybe a little better," Reid
said.
The two have the same
goal in mind to win dis-
tricts, try to win sectionals,
then state, and then the
national tournament in \West
Virginia. Arnold plays second
base. Reid usually catches.


but he will be the starting
pitcher in their first All-Star
game.
Other players on the
Nationals All-Stars are Dom-
inic Carlozzi, Jake Grubbs,
Preston Hines, Alex Krauss,
Zeke Manthey, John Scofield,
Andrew Shofner, Devin
Sinclair and Blake Smith.
Walk, then run
The All-Stars all have their
nicknames on the back of
their shirts: Shark, Bam-
Barn, Hurricane, Slider,
Lightning. On the back of
Blake Smith's shirt is a nick-
name his big brother gave
him, "Speedy."
A year and a half ago,
Smith spent 12 weeks in the
hospital recovering from a
compound fracture to his
right leg. No one knew if he
would evei play baseball
again.
On May 26, 2006 the
Friday after school was out
- Smith was riding alone
on an ATV at a Sunday
school picnic in North Port.
According to his dad Marc,
who was there when the
accident happened, the ATV
flipped over, Smith flew off
and his leg apparently hit the
handlebars. He was flown to
AlM Children's Hospital in St.
Petersburg.
He had five surgeries and
spent eight weeks in traction
with a pin in his leg. He spent
another four weeks in a full
body cast before he finally got
to go home.
'Nobody was really sure at
the time if he'd be able to run
again or even be able to
walk." his dad said.
Smith was 4 years old

when he started playing T-
ball. "Baseball is my favorite
thing to do," he said. "When I
got out of the hospital, I want-
ed to play baseball again. I
always thought I'd be able to
play again."
He started physical thera-
py as soon as he got out of
the body cast. He started
with a walker and before long
he was walking on his own.
And on Nov. 1, he was
released by his doctor to play
baseball again.
"He still has a minor limp,
and he's working on building
up his muscles," his dad said,
"but he's expected to have a
full recovery."
This year, he played on the
Nationwide team third
base, outfield, pitcher, catch-
er. "I like being catcher best."
he said. Nobody was more
surprised than Smith when
he made the AU-Star team.
"Blake is enthusiastic and
has great leadership," said
Manager Tritschler. "He's a
good ballplayer."

Playing cops at the junior law academy


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR

When Detective Jeremy
Borntreger asked a roomful of
middle school students how
many lied to their parents in
the past, every hand shot up.
Then Borntreger, a poly-
graph operator for the Sara-
sota County Sheriff's Office,
hooked a boy up to the lie
detector and asked him,
"Have you ever lied to your
parents?"
All the students giggled
when the boy said "no" even
as the line on the recorder
spiked. Clearly, he wasn't
telling the truth and the lie
detector showed it.
Borntreger is one of several
instructors at the Junior Law
Academy sponsored by the
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office. From June 4 to 15,
about 40 middle school stu-
dents are taking classes at
Laurel Nokomis School on
such topics as polygraph
techniques, S.WA.T. range, K9
search and rescue and traffic
stops.
"Sarasota is one of the only
agencies in the country to
have this Junior Law Acad-
emy," said Lt. Tim Enos, pub-
lic information officer for the
county's School Resource
Officer program. "We bring
middle school students for
two weeks to learn what we
do."
Simulation
For two weeks, the group
will be learning what law
enforcement officers do.
They'll get to see and test
some of the equipment and
have live demonstrations by
the mounted patrol and the
sheriff's helicopter.
Students will get to try the
simulated decision-making
program where they put
themselves in the role of
police having to make split-
second decisions on whether
to shoot.
"The kids love that simula-
tion," Newman said. "It lets
them experience what it's like
to make decisions. They use
real guns unloaded, of
course and if they shoot,
the program shows them
where they hit."
Newman and Officer Lee
Wallace, a Heron Creek SRO,
are doing some of the training
in this year's academy.
"We asked teachers, coun-
'selors and administrators at
the school, to identify some
students who deserved to
attend this special program,"
Newman said. "This is a1lot of
fun for kids and it also gives
them a good idea what law
enforcement is like."
Eighth-grader Aleksey Mc-
Call said she thinks the acade-
my is cool.
"This is way different from
other camps I've gone to," she
said. "I even went to a horse
camp before, but this blows
that out of the water."
The students were formed
into four teams and they
picked their own team
names, such as "10-31," the
code for "in pursuit."
The academy is not meant
as a recruitment tool, al-
though Enos knows that some
of the students who go
through the program may
eventually be interested in a
law enforcement career.
"It's really just to give them
more information on what we
do," he said.
Moving on
One role of the JLA, paral-
leling that of SROs in the
schools, is for students to feel
more comfortable about
approaching police. If they
understand what the officer's
job is like and have a chance
to socialize with police in a
nonthreatening setting, stu-
dents are more likely to view
them as adults they can trust.
SStudents who enjoyed the
JLA can broaden their scope
by taking the advanced class,
Drills and Skills, which runs
July 30 throughAug. 13. Those


who take part will get two T-
shirts and a Frisbee, and
they'll get to play Frisbee or
volleyball with law officers, as
well as more advanced class-

es.
There is also a JA Elite
class available for those who
have been through the first
session, where students can
visit other agencies such as
FBI, ATF, the medical examin-
er's office and the Florida
Department of Law Enforce-
ment Crime Lab.


Chances are, if you hooked
any of the JLA students to
Borntreger's polygraph, it
would show they all had a
great time at the Academy.

BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER

It's hot under the blue and red circus tent,
but the kids at Tito Gaona's Flying Fantasy
Circus Camp don't seem to notice. They are
engaged and focused on learning how to be
circus performers.
Clad in fluorescent tank tops that say
'"Lista" Italian for "ready" on their
backs, youth ages 8 to 14 learn a variety of
circus skills in their tvo weeks at


camp -- clowning, juggling, silk work and
flying on: the trapeze.
Gaona and his wife Renata operate the
camp. Gaona is a world-renowned trapeze
artist who worked for Ringling Bros. Barnum
&*Bailey Circus for 17 years.
Confidence
Gaona and Renata said the camp is
important for kids because it teaches confi-
dence and self-esteem.
"There is something about working with
heights that helps you conquer all types of
fears," said Judy Barstow, co-director of the
Flying Fantasy Circus Camp.
Renata said all the campers work together
in the camp. Barstow said working together
teaches the youth invaluable lessons of
trust.
For instance, the trapeze requires a mini-
mum of four people to operate while one
person swings: one holds the line; one
holds the safety harness; and two hold on
to the swinger while he is on the platform.
Each person must rely on the other so no
one gets hurt.
The flying trapeze
Young people flying 32 feet in the air
is a normal sight at Tito's camp.
For Taylor Buckmaster, 10, the tra-
peze is her favorite challenge.
On her first day of camp,
Buckmaster was terrified of letting go of
the platform.
"I closed my eyes," she said.
Now, Buckmaster opens her eyes
when she swings on the trapeze.
"It's a lot more fun when you open
them." she said.


The trapeze is'also a favorite of Amber
Porter, 13, who is attending Tito's camp for
the second year.
"The trapeze is thrilling," Porter said.
Renata said she noticed a change in
Porter, who is also one of her dance students,
from one year to the next.
"Last year, she was shaking," Renata said.,
"She has become much more confident."
Other activities
The youth practice every circus activity
throughout the day, not just the trapeze:
The silks, long pieces of ribbon that dou-
ble as a harness, and the Spanish Web, a type
of rope, were favorites of the older girls.
Fifteen feet in the air, one young girl
twirled upside-down from the silks. Instead
of looking like a harness wrapped around
her body, it looked like a lavender evening
gown flowing in the soft breeze.
Gaona said none of the youth who
attended the camp had any circus back-
ground before attending his camp.
If twirling from the silks wasn't a favorite
activity for a camper, something else was
bound to be. The boys and many of the
younger girls learned juggling.
Nicholas Pelisek, 10, likes to juggle the
diablos.
Diablos are composed of two sticks
attached by a thin string and an indepen-
dent, hourglass-shaped object made of plas-
tic about 7-inches tall. The purpose of the
diablos is to toss the object in the air with the
sticks and strings and catch it again.
Other campers juggled rings, plates, balls
and sticks. A soft breeze made the older girls
laugh when they attempted to juggle their
multi-colored scarves.


On with the show
Youth can.participate in the camp for one
or two weeks. If they stay for the two weeks,
they get to be a part of a choreographed
show for their parents on the last day of
camp.
Pelisek's favorite part of trapeze camp is
performing for his family.
"I like performing," he said.
Before lunch, the campers practiced their
routine. Leah Polley, 14, stood on a giant
medicine ball, balancing Carly Grimes, 11,
who stood on her shoulders.
When Grimes lost her balance and fell off
Polley's shoulders, she let out a giggle as the
harness swung her to safety.
History
This is the second year Gaona and Renata
have held the camp in Venice, having held it
in Sarasota and Boston as well.
Currently, the camp takes place on the
Venice Arena grounds, which was the winter
home of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum &
Bailey Circus from 1960-1992. While thekids
are learning their moves, they are surround-
ed by the history of many circus performers
from the past.
Right next to the trapeze is a ring where
the late, world-famous animal trainer
Gunther Gebel-Williams used to train his
horses. Polar bears used to perform on a
raised concrete ring that survives today.
Gaona plans on having the camp next
year despite current property disputes,
which could force him to find a new loca-
tion.
We are circus people, Gaona said. We go
anywhere.

And now


BYTED RANK
STAFF ESCRITOR
Hang on to your sanity,
ladies and gentlemen. It's
time for News from
Ecineville.
Ecineville has announc-
ed the promotion of current
Public Information Officer
Pamela Anderson to be the
new director of communi-
cations.
"Pam has just done a ter-
rific job here getting our
message out and keeping
the dissent to a minimum.


WWW.VENICEGONDOLIER.COM WEDNESDAY, JUNE 13, 2007


... The News from Ecineville


This promotion is long
overdue," said Ecineville
Mayor Juan Suarez.
Anderson will not only be
issuing press releases now;
she be directing and keep-
ing all city officials and city
council members "on mes-
,sage."
Anderson grew up in
Malibu, Calif., where she
worked as an actress and
model before attending
Smith College. She did her
graduate work at Stanford.
After completing her
master's degree, Anderson


joined the U.S. Marines,
attaining the rank of lieu-
tenant colonel. She served
for 14 years, receiving a
Silver Star and a Navy
Distinguished Service
Medal.
Leaving the Marine
Corps unexpectedly in 1990,
Anderson went into news-
papers, working as a
research assistant at the
Washington Post. Anderson
got her job through a jour-
nalist she had known while
serving at the Pentagon.
, Anderson's sexy writing


style caught the attention of
an editor at the Post and she
soon became a cub reporter
with the paper, covering the
Smithsonian and the
American Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals.
Her ground-breaking
work there enabled her to
move from the Washington'
Post to a full-time general
assignment reporter with
the Ecineville Sun.
"I hope to bring my deep
desire and passion to this
position and to fulfill the


needs of all my co-workers
here at city hall. My door
will always be open," said
Anderson.
Anderson begins her new
job August 1. The job-pays
$124,968 annually..
Well, this is Ted "I'm a
reporter, I'm a reporter"
Rank reporting. I'll see you
next issue with more news
from Ecineville. Until then,
remember, it's all good here
in Ecineville.

Proje Cuddle founder honored

Project Cuddle founder honored


FROM NAPSA

A woman who has saved
over 550 infants from being
abandoned by their young,
frightened mothers is being
recognized for her outstand-
ing efforts.
In 1997, Debbe Magnusen
saw a news report about an
abandoned baby found in her
community. As an adoptive
and foster parent to .many
unwanted children, Magnu-
sen was incensed that the
infant's mother had chosen to
simply abandon the baby
when she would have gladly
taken him into her home.
Suddenly it occurred to
Magnusen that she needed to
create a way to let women
,know they have another
option and her organization,
-called Project Cuddle, was


born. Project Cuddle and its
toll-free, 24-hour hotline,
(888) 6-Cuddle, have provid-
ed hundreds of women with
safe, legal and confidential
alternatives to abandoning
their baby.
Recently, Magnusen's ef-
forts came to the attention of
the beauty brand Clarins, as it
was beginning its search for
the first U.S. Most D\namic
Woman of the Year. The Most
Dynamic Woman Award orig-
inated at Clarins' global head-
quarters in France 10 years
ago and the U.S. will be the
tenth country to launch this
meaningful award. The award
recognizes a woman ho l has
devoted her energy to
improving the lives of chil-
dren so theyanight have hope
for the future.
The Most DynamicWoman


Award name derives from the
company's popular "treat-
ment" fragrance, Eau
Dynamisante. Clarins pro-
vides financial support to each
award recipient, as a concrete
way of helping her further her
heroic efforts. Through this
recognition, these women
also receive important aware-
ness, and it is often simply the
spreading of information
about a cause or charity that
makes the ultimate difference
in their success.
The commitment to service
is nothing new for this com-
pany. The founder, Jacques
Courtin, instituted a legacy of
philanthropy that has contin-
ued through his sons, who are
equally committed to making
the world a better place to
live.
Through the creation of

Debbe Magnusen, center, who created a program to help
abandoned children, is the first American to receive an award
that recognizes the'efforts of women around the world.


programs that advance social
responsibility, environmental
preservation and medical
research, Clarins continues to
take a leadership role in the
realm of corporate social


responsibility.
Project Cuddle is com-
pletely funded through do-
nations. To learn more, visit

ADVERTISING WORKS!!!


It all began for Gulf Coast Carpet Cleaning back in 1976
when Jim and Debbie Scott came to Venice from Ohio.
"One of the first things we did was to advertise in the Venice
Gondolier Sun. It worked back in 1976 and continues to
work with every issue." Not only do our previous customers
look for our ads, but we are also reaching out to all new
residents as well. They trust their local newspaper to
deliver the best. "After being business owners for over 30
years, we know what works for advertising. The Gondolier
Sun works!"


To top it off, our marketing partner Kerri Marshall, is
extremely dedicated to serving our business' advertising
needs, and is very detail oriented. Thanks Gondolier Sun
for handling all our advertising needs for the past 30 years!

KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Cruisin'
Every summer Our Lady of
Lourdes Catholic Church in
Venice plans a special trip for
members and friends. This
year's destination is the


Maritime Provinces of Nova
Scotia, New Brunswick,
Prince Edward Island and
Cape Breton Island along the
scenic Cabot Trail.
The price for the 10-day
tour, which departs Aug. 16
and returns Aug. 26, includes
14 meals (nine breakfasts and
five dinners) with round trip
bus service from Venice to
Tampa International Airport.
Highlights include visits to
Halifax, Peggy's Cove, Citadel,
a lobster excursion, Hopewell
Rocks, the College of Piping
and Cavendish National Park.
In Halifax, tour goers will
join local fishermen aboard
their boat as they teach guests


how to catch, cook and crack
a lobster.
The Cabot Trail, named for
explorer John Cabot, features
more than 50 miles of rugged
terrain and stunning ocean
views, with mountains along
one side and the peaceful
Gulf of St. Lawrence on the
other side.
The price is $2,599 per per-
son double occupancy, in-
cluding taxes and fees and
round-trip air fare from
Tampa. A single supplement
is available. For more infor-
mation, call 941-497-2931.
It's a sign
Join me at 1 p.m. Saturday


at Borders, 3800 South
Tamiami Trail, Sarasota,
where I will be signing copies
of my latest book, "Cool
Road Trips of Central
Florida" as well as "Venice
History Illustrated," which
won a bronze medal in the
Ippy Awards on June 1 in
New York City. The award
was for best regional non-
fiction in the Southeast. To
reserve copies of either
book, call the store at 366-
7970. As the road trip book is
on its way by boat from
China, you may want to call
the store first to make sure it
makes it. I would appreciate
your crossed fingers in that


regard.
Strummin'
"Johnny Guitar" will be the
summer offering at the Gold-
en Apple Dinner Theatre in
Sarasota. Honored as the best
off-Broadway musical in 2004
by the Outer Critic's Circle,
"Johnny Guitar" will open
June 19 and play through
Sept. 2.
Based on a classic western
movie starring Joan Craw-
ford, the funny musical was
considered the "wildest west-
ern in history" by critics. It is
family friendly and funny and
even a bit wacky.
The theater is at 61 N.


Pineapple Ave., in downtown
Sarasota. For tickets, call the
box office at 366-5454.
Reunidn time
In the case of reunions,
yes, you can go back! I recent-
ly returned from Sweet Briar
College, where I celebrated a
reunion with my classmates.
It was great to see the campus
and everyone again. If you
have a reunion coming up,
don't miss it. If you are in the
Venice High School Class of
1997, your 10th reunion will
be Aug. 3-5. For details, visit
the class Web site at venice-

Could alchemy work in politics?


At the risk of sounding sac-
rilegious, which I most cer-
tainly am not well, at least
not since St. Christopher was
determined not to be the guy
who would protect me while I
attempt to navigate the
orange barrels in the area I
would really like to know if I
could get an appointment
with the Rev. Steve Jones, of
"Heal Thy Teeth" fame.
I've been having some
trouble with a couple of
molars, and I think this guy
might be just the right person
to take care of my problem,
since my health insurance
doesn't afford me dental cov-
erage.
The Rev. Jones, by the way,
is a faith healer fromWest "By
Golly" Virginia who special-
izes in teeth.


BROUGHT.TO YOU BY:



A division of Sun Coast Media Group, Inc.,
r. l.l i Tr,,,': ,l cl Hm 1 l.a i ri ,; r


Now, I've heard of throw-
ing one's crutches away after
a miracle is performed by one
of these guys, but I think that
making cavities go away and
straightening crooked teeth,
in my opinion, is really
putting the bite on things.
However, Jones, the ex-
coal miner turned boxer
turned faith healer, has,
according to his bio and those
with whom he travels, been
repairing bad teeth since
1987. Additionally, he has,
according to some who have
actually seen this guy work,
turned blackened amalgam
fillings into pure gold and sil-
ver.
Here's where I might bor-
der on being just: a tad sacrile-
gious. It would appear to me
that if the Rev. Jones can make
silver and gold from a mixture
of mercury alloys combined
with tin or other metals, then
why in the world is he not the
ricliest man on the planet?
I think he just might be the
man to be secretary of the
U.S. treasury. If you think
about it, he could go to all the
meetings of the world leaders,
examine their teeth with his
handy-dandy flashlight and,
depending on the amount of
amalgam in their mouths,

president of the World Bank,
Paul Wolfowitz, who suppos-
edly is stepping down at the
end of June, after the board of,
directors of the bank exoner-
ated him by declaring that he
has done nothing improper.
(By the way, this invites the
question, why is he stepping
down if he has done nothing
wrong, as he maintains? But
that's another topic.)
His, Mr. Wolfowitz's, posi-
tion, however, seems ideal for
a guy who can turn common
elements into precious met-
als by transmutation. He, Mr.
Wolfowitz, did, after all, con-
vert his girlfriend from an
average, penurious employee
at the bank into what some
would call a well-to-do com-
modity through what some
might call quasi-alchemy.
Alchemy, by the way, was
once thought to be for-real
and a medieval philosophy. It
would appear that it has now
found its way into the
"evange-political" world in
which we live.

where there was at one time a
separation of church and state
in our democracy; it seems to
have disappeared. Perhaps it
was political alchemy.
Jones, dubbed the "spiritual
tooth fairy," has apparently
found a niche to which many
more will ascribe. I'm thinking
that it's only a matter of time
before any/all/some of the
presidential wannabes stand
before God and country and
claim to have the power to
perform their own brand of
alchemy. Like being able to
turn a land that has known
hatred and fighting for the past
2,000 years into aland of peace
and love.
I have a great idea for the
next faith healer. My car isn't
running too well, and I'm
thinking...

Celebrating blood donors


FROM NAPSA

Each year millions of peo-
ple receive life-saving blood
transfusions from individuals
whom they will never meet
and whose identity they will
never learn. Donating blood
is a selfless act and it is impor-
tant to celebrate the unsung
heroes who volunteer to aid
those in need. World Blood
Donor Day was established to
do just that.
This global celebration -
held annually every June 14 -
aims to raise awareness of the
need for safe blood around
the world, to thank and honor

those blood donors who
make transfusion possible,
and to encourage healthy, eli-
gible individuals to give blood
regularly.
According to AABB (for-
merly known as the American
Association of Blood Banks),
about 39,000 units of blood
are required each day in the
United States to treat patients
with cancer, to support organ
transplant recipients, and to
help save the lives of accident
and trauma victims.
One unit of blood can save


up to three lives. Celebrate
World Blood Donor Day by
making an appointment to
give blood. Visit aabb.org to
locate a blood donor center in
your area.

award has made that a rea-
sonable expectation."

ings of the late Ilse Kern of

nadian territories and 10 for-
eign countries. Awards were


presented in 65 national cate-
gories and for best fiction and
non-fiction in 10 regions.

this year's entries was the pas-
sion and commitment of the
authors for their topics," said
Jim Barnes, awards director.
Among the outstanding
books of the year honored in
12 special national categories
was "Just Peace: A Messenger
of Hope," by former President

Memories


linger on

While students enjoy sum-
mer break, news marking
their achievements continues
to make headlines.
South county elementary
school art teachers took a bow
recently along with their stu-
dents. At a reception at the
Venice Art Center, they pre-
sented the young artists with
participation ribbons for their
artwork. The teachers include
Barbara Sirpilla, Joanna
Davis, Marcia Brown, Cindy
Maid, Bradley McMurray,
Peggy Hayden, Cynthia
Hamilton, Tony Biladean,
Kim Seidel and Reva Levy.
Students created colorful
dragons, clowns and mystery
characters. "Art is about
thinking, problem solving
and creating work that
is meaningful," said Cindy
Ballastieri, school district art
director. "Parents, thank you
for raising your children the
way you did," she added.
Barbara Freeman, director
of the board for the Venice Art
Center, echoed the enthusi-
asm generated by everyone at
the reception. She champions
for the, arts and especially is
determined to make a place
for students at the center.
Freeman dreams of creating
internship opportunities, and
anyone who knows her knows
she has the drive to make her
dreams come true.
A+ report
Members of the Venice-
Nokomis Rotary Club listened
as Kim Kindell, director of the
Rotary Futures program, gave
a glowing report about the
senice that helps high school
students connect with schol-
arship opportunities. "We've
had another great year," she
told the group. Kim showed
members a new brochure,
"Doorway to the Future,"
made available by a grant
from the Vaenice Golf &
Country Club Foundation "It
helps get the word out to stu-
dents and parents," she said.
Since its inception nearly
six years ago, the program has
had 27,351 sign in at its
portable on the Venice High
School campus. This included
parents and students from all
country schools using the
scholarship database provid-
ed. The Rotary Futures pro-
gram has helped Venice High
School students receive more
than $6 million in scholar-
ships. i
Kindell recognized Karen
Woods and Rotarian Steve
Picazio Jr. for their volunteer
service with Rotary Futures.
At the meeting, Jerry
Zwers, Rotary president, also
introduced Dick Dodderidge,
who gave a legislative report,
and new member Duwain
Hunt.
One of our best
The special person of this
week is Marcia Brown. Brown
is the. art teacher at Taylor
Ranch Elementary. She in-
spires her students to create
from their hearts. Whether
she has a group of 25 students
or 35, she designs lessons that
keep everyone involved.
Each year she presents her
students' work to each art
show int town. The whimsical
characters and scenes her
students create make people
smile.


Brown is one of the art
teachers who make Venice,
great.
