How safe are you at work?


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

If someone is bent on
doing violence in the work-
place and willing to sacrifice
enough, there is little that
can stop it. The best of
workplace security experts
will admit to that.
However, there are mea-
sures responsible employ-
ers can take to lessen the
risk of workplace violence.
"The most important
recommendation for an
employer is to cultivate an
environment where em-
ployees are encouraged in
strict confidence to report
any activity that presents
any indication of a threat
level," Lt. Tom McNulty said
in a workplace security
release issued by the Venice
Police Department. "Secur-
ity cameras, access cards
and any array of security
equipment certainly can be
a deterrent but early inter-
vention and a plan, no mat-
ter how small, can help pre-
vent potentially dangerous
activity in the workplace."

Recent and planned job
cuts; a soft hiring freeze; sub-
stantial increases in land
planning fees, permits and
utility fees; and deferred con-
struction projects should be
all that is necessary to meet
the tax rollback passed by the
Legislature June 14.
That was the update pro-
vided by City Manager Mary
Black to city council this
week.
"These preventive steps
will allow us to meet the tax

Next year will be a different

That's because in January

Another airport't hotel in the works


BY-GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

A planned 165-room resort
hotel only a block away from
the Venice Municipal Airport is
on the Venice Planning Com-
mission's agenda for Tuesday,
June 19.
Representatives for the pro-
posed Venice Island Resort,
proposed by Del Circo Pointe
Plaza LLC, will be on hand to
request a zoning map amend-
ment for the 5-acre property
from commercial and office
use to resortuse.
They're also requesting a
conditional use permit to
exceed current height limits by
10 feet.
Plans
Owners are proposing a six-
story, 74-foot building.
The property is 1225 Ave-
nida del Circo between Ring-
ling Drive and Base Avenue
near the airport and the old cir-
cus arena.
The plan is to remodel the
existing 25-year-old, two-story
assisted living facility that
closed down when insurance
rates became prohibitive, and


add five stories of hotel rooms
init.
A landscaped courtyard will
contain and buffer outdoor
hotel uses such as a planned
swimming pool, outdoor din-
ing, large gatherings and play-
ground from the surrounding
neighbors, according to a nar-
rative submitted by the owner
to the Venice planning and
zoning department.
The resort will feature a
rooftop public "destination-
type" restaurant and bar with
an outdoor patio "for watching
the sunset over the gulf and the
airport."
A public fountain with a
cluster of palm trees and
shrubs is also proposed.
Five access points to the
hotel would be from Avenida
del Circo and Ringling Drive.
Plans call for 191 parking
spaces.
Catalyst
This area of the city is some-
what underdeveloped and
aging, said owners in the narra-
tive.
"We view this proposal as an
early pioneer type of redevel-
opment for the area that se-


cures a new attractive and vi-
able use for a large vacant
property that will catalyze
other improvements to the
neighborhood," states the nar-
rative.
"Similar to the new Brezza
del Mare project at Base and
Cooper streets, this develop-
ment will exceed the architec-
tural and landscape standards
of the existing area and will
raise the bar for redevelopment
of surrounding properties."
Modular
Also on the conunission's
agenda is a zoning map
amendment request foi \Vat-
erford Company's Tra Ponti re-
sort condo-hotel on die Intra-
coastal Waterway next to Ven-
ice Avenue Bridge.
In addition, Florida Shores
Bank representatives will re-
quest permission to place a
2,770-square-foot modular
building on 2 acres of property
at the northeast corner of U.S.
41 Bypass North and Bird Bay
Drive West to house a tempo-
rary bank until a new facility
is built. That is estimated,to
take two years.

Cheryl Keenan is not about
to go to work without her dog,
Mya, so she is saying goodbye
to the Venice Centre Mall.
The Venice Center Mall
board of directors voted not
to accept her application to
allow pets in her pet accesso-
ry shop, Paw Print Essentials.
The special exception her
landlord, Herroni Realty, pre-
sented to the board with her
rental application six months
ago was denied. The board
determined that to bring any
animal into commercial unit
No. 17B would be in violation
of the association's by-laws.
"Basically, they are severely
limiting my ability to generate
income," said Keenan.


Lee Ball, VCM association
treasurer and a clothing store
owner in' the mall, tried to
change the mall's pet policy.
She got a sample vote of the
owners to show the board
that there was interest in
making the building pet-
friendly. Her efforts did not sit
well with the board. 1
"Each association has a
provision in their documents
where owners can petition
the board of directors to
amend the documents of the
association." Jim Kraut, mall
association director wrote in
an e-mail to the Venice Gon-
dolier Sun.
He wrote that Ball could
look at the documents, deter-
mine what the percentage for
approval is and then write a
petition, as an owner, to sub-


mit in writing to the board.
He also said that there
would have to be an owner's
meeting after proper notice,
and all owners would be sent
a proxy ballot to vote in favor
of or against an amendment
to allow pets within the asso-
ciation.
' "No one ever said that this
petition would prevent an
eviction," he wrote.
Kraut wrote that Ball acted
without the authority of the
board.
After the board vote, Keen-
an asked to be released from
her lease with Herron Realty.
It may be too late for Paw,
Print Essentials, but Ball said
that at the next board meet-
ing the board is going to have

Sea turtles face hazardous journey


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Night after night, females
nesting sea turtles are coming
ashore along Sarasota County
beaches to lay eggs that will
hatch some 50-60 days later.
On Venice beaches, the
nesting ttu des aie almost ex-
clusively loggerheads, weigh-
ing about 200 potuids. Log-
gerheads reach sexual matu-
rity when they are about 20
years old. From one mating
they will lay three to five nests
during the summer. Mating
occurs in the Gulf in April.
Afterward the males go back
out into the gulf.
From the single mating,
females are able to fertilize
several batches of eggs.
"The females are good at
storing the sperm," turtle
expert Lewellen Earhart said.
"Females can lay fertilized
eggs 14 weeks after mating.

A female loggerhead turtle weighing about 200 pounds played
107 eggs in the nest shone in this photo, which was taken with
only a red light in order to not distract the turtle.


Earhart directs a sea turtle
research program at the
University of Central Florida.
He and his students conduct
their field studies at the
Archie Carr National Wildlife
Refuge and along the Space


Coast beaches.

Open house on Nokomis
water project
Sarasota County will hold
an informational open house
Tuesday, June 19, to present
its plan for bringing central
water to Nokomis.
From 5 to 7 p.m., residents
are invited to stop by the
Nokomis Community Center
at 234 Nippino Trail, to talk
one-on-one with utilities staff
about how the project will
affect their neighborhoods.
The open house will have
information on the construc-
tion schedule, costs, backflow
requirements and how to
convert private wells for land-
scape irrigation. Residents
may also ask about the loca-
tion of water meters in their
yard and learn about auto-
mated water meter reading.
The Nokomis Water Lines
Project will bring central
water to 1,500 properties.
Construction is expected to
take approximately two years.
: According to engineering
manager Gregory Rouse, final
costs of construction will not
be known until the project is
complete, but a portion of the
assessment cost will be fund-
ed by $3.6 million from the
county's infrastructure surtax.
For more information, call
861-5000 and ask for project
management, or visit scgov.
net and click on "Utilities"
and then on "Nokomis Water
Lines."

A little drama added to


Venice High School


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER ,


Sharon Ferguson just got
her job back.
The Sarasota County Sc-
hool District, in an effort to
preserve some of recently cut
arts 'programs, reinstated
three arts positions this week.
Ferguson, a drama teacher
at Venice High School, is one
of the people who benefited
from the reinstatement.
In May 2007, Venice High
School Principal Candace
Millington said there were
two reasons for the cuts at
VHS.
The small learning com-
munities available to stu-
dents in the fall were the pri-
mary reason for the budget
juggling for VHS. Some salary
allocations were redirected to
account for Career Technical
Education teachers.
The other reason was VHS
had projected its 2007-08


enrollment would be lower
than last year's by 150 stu-
dents.
However, Millington said
she hasn't yet seen a decrease
in enrollment.
In fact, Millington antici-
pates she will hire a few more
teachers once school starts, to
keep the class sizes low.
Lori White, instructional
support services associate su-
perintendent for the Sarasota
County School District, met
with the Sarasota County Arts
Council last week and lis-
tened to the council's re-
quests as to which arts posi-
tions needed to be reinstated.
According to White, Fer-
guson's position was saved at
the request of the council, de-
spite projected lower enroll-
ment for the school. It was
White's understanding if
Ferguson's position was elim-
inated, a technical portion of
the drama program was not
going to be available.


The school district has
been conservative in its stu-
dent projections this year,_
according to Millington.
"Last year, they overpro-
jected and had to 'surplus'
(lay off) staff," Millington
said.
Ferguson did not have to
go through surplusing this
year, or the displacement of
staff due to overpositioning.
According to a representa-
tive from the school district,
teacher displacement is due
to take place next week when
staffing is firmed up.
While she is going back to
her position at VHS, Fer-
guson, will have some new
responsibilities. Millington
said she will also be teaching
a TV production class in addi-
tion to drama.
"We're very happy to have
her back," Millington said.

FCAT flaw won't affect

students, schools


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER

The Florida Department of
Education held a meeting in
Tampa Wednesday to discuss
recent Florida Comprehen-
sive Assessment Test prob-
lems across Florida.
The goal: to determine
how to accurately calculate
and measure the number of
2006 third-graders affected by
a faulty test.
The problem with the 2006
test, according to Natalie
Roca, the executive director
for research and assessment
for the Sarasota County
school district, was a series of
misplaced "anchors."
An anchor is a type of
question strategically placed
on every FCAT test that grade-
rs use to measure the impro-
vement of students, accord-
ing to Lori White, instruction-
al support services associate
superintendent for the school
district.
Not placing the anchors in
consistent positions caused
some disparity in scores,
White said, as some positions
are considered easier, some
harder. The anchors in 2006
were in an "easier" position.
Roca said it was human
error.
"Someone approved an
anchor set, and it was not the
best it could be," Roca said.
W ho was affected?
Students must receive a
score of 3 or higher to pass the
FCAT and move on to the next
grade level.
Because the anchors were
in easier locations on the test,
the test scores became inflat-
ed, causing some students
who took the test to be pro-
moted improperly. Inflated


scores also cause schools to
receive higher grades, and
more state money. Teachers
can also receive bonuses.
The students who were
affected were those who
earned promotion by 20 or
fewer test points and who
scored poorly on a national
standardized test, according
to the Associated Press.
An estimated 129 of the
2006 third-graders in Sarasota
County were affected by the
faulty test, according to the
FDOE. For the state, 13,468
third-graders were affected.
Sarasota County has rela-
tively low numbers in com-
parison to other districts in
the state. Dade County had
roughly 2,016 students who
were affected.
Conclusions
At Wednesday's meeting
Roca was asked] for her rec-
ommendation on how to fac-
tor in the scores with new
scores coming in.
She said it would be hard
for her to make a recommen-
dation without knowing what
impact the data would have


on the schools and children.
White said that no individ-
ual school or child would be
negatively affected by the
committee's conclusions.
She also said inflated
scores could actually hurt a
school when they are aver-
aged with previous and future
scores.
Roca said they agreed at
the meeting if corrected
scores would help a school,
they would include them in
averages; however, if they
hurt the school, they would
not be included.
"I like the idea," Roca said,
"but I would like to know
exactly how they're going to
go about doing that."
Roca said they did not
come to an conclusion about
what kind of procedure
would be put in place to
implement the idea, ensuring
its fairness.
Roca said the FDOE
reported there were no other
problems with any other
FGAT test, including ones
taken in 2007.

Correction
A press release issued by the Sarasota County School Board Thursday and printed in the
June 15 Gondolier Sun incorrectly stated the proposed budget for 2007-08 had reduced sev-
eral arts positions along with numerous other budget cuts required to balance the district
budget in the face of student enrollment growth for the year being lower than previous years
and other budget constraints. The district issued a correction Friday stating that enrollment
will be higher next year by about 500 students as compared to a growth rate of 900 students'
in the previous year and as many as 1,600 students earlier in the decade.

Grant applications submitted for Lord House redo


The Venice Historic Preservation Board is seeking
funding to supplement private donations for the
restoration project.


BY ROLLIE REYNOLDS
STAFF WRITER'

The Lord Family House
will begin to look better in the
near future.
Some of the exterior siding
elements that had been
removed will be temporarily
replaced while more exten-
sive work awaits responses to
grant applications to the state
Division of Historical Resou-
rces and Gulf Coast Com-
munity Foundation of Venice.
In order for preservation
architects to project the
potential cost of restoring the
1896 historic pioneer home,
they had to perform "selective
demolition" throughout the
old house for a complete
analysis of its structural com-
position and condition. That
left neighbors and passersby
wondering if the place was
falling apart.
Far from it, according to
the city's Historic Preserva-
tion Board.
Just to restore the exterior
to its original appearance will
cost an estimated $350,000.
That does not include an
additional $80,000 that may
be needed to reconstruct the
special wooden hurricane
shutters that were part of the
original house.
The cost of interior work
will depend on the final
determination of how the
second floor of the house will
be used. After a wide variety
of proposals were made and
discussed in public meetings,
the board concluded that the
first floor will be a museum.
Optional uses of the sec-


ond floor include a limited-
access public office with a
wide, wrap-around veranda,
the lease of which could help
provide funds for the muse-
um. The proposed gardens
around the outside of the
building could also used as a
scenic site for weddings and
other meetings. Public ses-
sions to disc uss those options
are yet to be scheduled.
In the meantime, the Ven-
ice Historic Preservation Board
has applied for a special cate-
gory grant of $280,000 from
the state for the construction
work, and a $35,000 grant
from GCCFV to pay for the
architect's final plans and
drawings for exterior rehabili-
tation.
Though obtaining such
funds is a very competitive
process, board chair Janis
Fawn is very hopeful that the
applications have a good
chance of being approved.
"In the state application,"
said Fawn at Friday's board
meeting, "we are showing
that at least $190,000 has
been either raised or commit-
ted from local donors. In their
process, the closer you can
come to matching the funds
you're requesting, the better,.
chance you have of getting
the request approved in Talla-
hassee.
"They like to see that the
community is supporting the
project," she said. "That indi-
cates the relative value and
benefit it should bring to the
area once it's completed."
Fawn plans to travel to
Tallahassee to personally sup-
port the application when it is

presented to the Division of
Historical Resources in Sep-
tember. She hopes to be.
accompanied by other repre-
sentatives from the commu-
nity.
Additional support
In addition to the informa-
tion regarding local donations,
the application packages also
contain letters of support from
many local individuals and
organizations.
First is a letter from the
city's finance department
confirming that the city origi-
nally contributed a one-time
amount of $81,545 for the
relocation of the house to its
current location across from
city hall. Although indicating
its ongoing support of the
project, city council made it
clear at the time of that
expenditure that it would
provide no further funding.
That's when private dona-
tions started coming in di-
rected to the GCCFV Lord
House Historic Preservation
Fund. More than $71,000 has
been collected to date.
Besides contributing $6,000
in funds, members of the
Venice Area Historical Society
have committed to volunteer at
least 1,000 hours of physical
labor to the project.
The package of exhibits
also includes letters from the
Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce, Venice Main-
Street, the Triangle Inn Asso-


ciation, the Laurel Civic Asso-
ciation, the Arts and Culture
Alliance, the Historic Pres-
ervation Coalition of Sarasota
County, and the Gulf Coast
Heritage Association (Histor-
ic Spanish Point).
State Sens. Lisa Carlton
and Michael Bennett have
written letters of support for
the project, as have U.S Rep.
Vern Buchanan and State
Reps. Doug Holder, Michael
Grant and Keith Fitzgerald.
Former State Rep. Nancy
Detert, Sarasota County Com-
missioner Shannon Staub and
Venice Police Chief Julie
Williams also added their re-
commendations that the
grant request be approved.
Education in preservation
In other business at Fri-
day's Historic Preservation
Board meeting, Board Mem-
ber Carolyn Shrauger was
asked to chair a new educa-
tional subcommittee. Its pur-
pose will be to develop ways
of informing owners of his-
toric properties about the
process and the advantages of
getting their properties listed
on the local historic registry.
"In the past," said Sh-
rauger, "many have been hes-
itant to involve themselves
with another regulatory
board which might exercise
some review over theirprop-
erty. There was also'confusion
about having to go before the
Architectural Review Board."'
Now, rather than the ARB,
the Historic Preservation
Board is charged with approv-
al of changes to properties on
the historic registry.
"Where there used to be a
lot of confusion due to appar-
ent conflicts between the state
requirements and those of the
ARB," Shrauger said, "our
board assures adherence to the


accepted national guidelines.
That makes it much easier for
people to comply."
In addition, the city's com-
prehensive plan has been clari-
fied regarding historical preser-
vation expectations and stan-
dards, making it a more helpful
document for reference and
review.. There is also ongoing
discussion of the possibility of
granting some kind of tax
incentive for those who are
willing to.register.
"Although any property
over 50 years old can apply for


Washing


the registry," said Fawn, "we
really concentrate on those
from the 1920s era.
"According to a past study,"
she said, "we know there are
at least 200 properties in
Venice which are potentially
qualified. Many of them have
out-of-state or out-of-the-
country owners, which com-
plicates the process of con-
tacting them and communi-
cating the necessary informa-
tion."

County goes ahead with waterfront purchases


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


Waterfront purchases in
Englewood totaling $3 million
will go forward, despite an
attempt by Sarasota County
Administrator Jim Ley to
delay the deals.
Ley tried to influence the
Sarasota County Commission
to put off a promised pur-
chase of properties at 800 W.
Perry St. and 50 Southwind
Drive for 90 days.
Citing potentially sizable
budget cuts coming from
Tallahassee, Ley urged com-
missioners to reconsider the
acquisition it promised to
make on behalf of the
Englewood Community Re-
development Area.
Ley said if they went ahead
with the purchase, "It will
obligate the county to several
hundred thousand dollars a
year in debt payment until the
short-term loan is paid off.
That's several hundred thou-
sand dollars that could be
otherwise used for revenue to
preserve something else that

we may have to cut when it
comes down to the discus-
sion in the Legislature."
Ley also warned the com-
missioners other CRA initia-
tives would have to be rolled
back in order to repay the
debt in a timely manner.
"That would essentially
put the CRA at a standstill for
several years," Ley said.
County Commissioner
Paul Mercier said the county
had to upheld its end of the
bargain.
"(The property owners)
cut a deal with us in good
faith," Mercier said. "This is
an amenity that is going to
enhance our entire parks and
rec from South County all the
way up to North County."
Good purchase
Commissioner Shannon
Staub acknowledged that

going forward with the pur-
chase could delay or cancel
other CRA efforts, but stood
firm on the importance of
having waterfront property,.
"What the CRA has to
understand is the vote we are
taking will likely jeopardize
some of the other plans we
had hoped to move forward
with," Staub said, adding that
the only other CRA initiative
she considered critical was
stormwater removal.
"There will be no other rev-
enue," warned County Com-
mission Chair Nora Patt-
erson, who expressed her
intention of voting against
the purchase.
"We don't know that,"
Staub replied. "We're still sur-
mising."
Mercier said that going
back on the purchase would
hurt the county's credibility.


County Commissioner Jon
Thaxton then weighed in, cit-
ing an opt,-out on the pur-
chase as "a typical way of
doing business in the world of
real estate contracts." Tha-
xton said he would vote in
favor of opting out of the pur-
chase.
That left County Com-
missioner Joe Barbetta as the
swing vote. ,
"It's a conununity asset,"
Barbetta said. "I try to ignore
the Legislature and not try to
do business based on what
they're going to do. We can't
run government that way."
The final vote was 4-1 in
favor of going ahead with the
purchase, with Thaxton
throwing in his support when
he saw he would be outvoted.
Patterson was the lone dis-
senter.

doesn't matter now. Ferguson
was an employee, disgruntled
or not, and had a right to be
there.
Ferguson's body was found
several hours later at her
Bradenton home. She had ap-
parently shot herself.
Cutting the risk
According to several surveys
conducted on workplace vio-
lence, the top three preventive
measures are:
Employee training
Zero tolerance for inappro-
priate behavior
Controlling access to
buildings
Employers need to promote
and encourage open commu-
nication and develop clear and
consistent written procedures
for reporting all signs of pend-
ing violence.
Additionally, they need to:
Develop a single trusted
employee whom other em-
ployees can contact in strict
confidence to report unusual
or violent behavior.
Communicate by meet-
ings, posted reporting proce-
dures, posters, etc. that work-
place violence will not be foler-
ated.
Involve all employees in
workplace violence prevention
and awareness.
Maintain open communi-
cation with law enforcement if
or when concerns arise about
possible workplace violence.
Many times violence is
brought to the workplace by a
disgruntled spouse, ex-lover or
fonner employee. When an
unwanted person arrives at the
workplace, and it is assumed
that the situation is escalating
toward violence, each work
group should have a code
worked out to signify that the
police or security need to be
called.
The caller should surrepti-
tiously go to an office, lock the


ALARMING STATISTICS

door and supply as much
information as possible to the
police communicator.
If confronted,
what should I do?
McNulty wrote in his memo
that the wisest thingyou can do
if a situation appears to be
turning violent is remain calm
and caring, but do not be con-
descending.
"Don't exchange threats,
don't give orders, let the person
vent, and listen intently," Mc-
Nulty states. "Many times this
will prevent a person from
assaulting the listener."
You must also avoid any
quick movements or actions
that could be considered ag-
gressive.
If you are by yourself, try to
create in a subtle way an
escape path to an open door.
Warning signs
Warning signs of disgrun-
tled employees are tricky. A
person may exhibit one of
more of them and still not be
considered a threat. However,
several or more taken together
may begin to paint a picture of
someone who is troubled and
worth watching.
Here are some to consider:
poor attendance
poor performance
negative workplace rela-
tionships


insubordination
angry outbursts at minor
issues
actual or veiled threats of
violence
out-of-character behavior
Domestic violence
Many times, workplace vio-
lence is the result of domestic
violence that occurred outside
the workplace and continues
in the workplace.
So, what are the signs, of
domestic violence?
There are many and they are
complex. Here are some you
can watch for: unexplained
injuries; bruising to several
body parts; increase in sick-
time use; less-than-acceptable
work product; numerous calls
in a hushed, low, manner; self-
destructive, behavior; and
bouts of depression and isola-
tion.
While no one likes to tattle,
there is the larger issue of moral
responsibility if you suspect a
person is a threat.
Advise management im-
mediately and eventually call
police or a domestic violence
support group.
This is the correct avenue to
take for the victim because'
early intervention can prevent
a possible eruption at the
workplace.

exemption. It could result in
substantially deeper cuts to city
and county budgets.
"We're not trying to address
those changes (at this time),"
Black said.
Black previously identified
40 city positions he plans to
eliminate. Twenty-four have
already been cut, including a
half dozen layoffs.
Most of the remaining posi-
tions targeted are vacant or will


be eliminated through attrition.
But there's the potential
another six to eight city posi-
tions could get the ax once the
budget is finalized in October.
"There could have been
more layoffs if we didn't antici-
pate tax reform measures
would pass," said Black
"When PGT asked for re-
duced hours from its employ-
ees, we knew that was a pretty
good indicator" that the city
should take action.
"We knew the Legislature


was going to take some action.
The public has pretty much
demanded it."
The soft hiring freeze in
place since last October, lay-
offs, fee increases based on a
"cost-recovery model" and
deferred projects made up the
$2.6 million shortfall caused by
legislation passed this week
freezing property tax collec-
tions at this year's level.

TURTLES from page lA


Venice beaches until about
mid-July. They come ashore
after dark and at high tide,
dragging their giant bodies up
to a point on the sand above
the tideline.
Alternating flippers, the
nesting turtle digs, scoops and
then flips the scooped-out
sand away from the hole. When
the hole is about 18 inches
deep, the female deposits 1'00-
112 eggs in the nest.
Occasionally a green sea
turtle nests in the area. Green
sea turtles lay 133-136 eggs,
Earhart said.
Leatherbacks, which lay
eggs along the east coast of
Florida, only lay about 80 eggs
per nest. Leatherbacks are the
largest sea turtles, reaching
weights of as much as 1,000
pounds and a shell diameter of
as much as 8 feet, he said,
Turtles generally return to
the beaches where they were
hatched, Earhart said. Log-
gerheads are less likely to re-


turn to the same beach than
other species of sea turtles.
Animals such as raccoons
pose the biggest risk to turtle
nests. InVenice, turtle nests are
regularly caged in areas such as
Caspersen Beach for that rea-
son.
In some areas of the world,
human poachers continue to
be a risk as well, for the eggs are
considered a delicacy in some
cultures.
Threats
If the eggs remain undis-
turbed, the next big threat
comes just after hatching when
the babies emerge from the
nest and head to the water.
Hatchling turtles range upward
from about 2 inches in size and
are nearly sand colored. The
coloration offers some protec-
tion from predators.
If disoriented by light from
cars or nearby homes or busi-
nesses or even someone walk-
ing the beach with a light,


hatchlings might head in the
wrong direction and be hit by a
car. Many are picked off by
predators, including crabs and
birds of prey. Disorientations
because flights continue to be
one of the biggest problems
alongVenice beaches.
Once in the water, the grow-

ing turtles travel as far as 500
miles out to sea. Some are car-
ried on currents as far as the
Canary Islands.
Maturity is more a matter of
size than age, but most begin
nesting at about 15-20 years of-
age and continue nestingfor as
long as 32 years.
Adults range in size from 36
to 38 inches, weighing 200-350
pounds.
By the time a turtle reaches
sexual maturity, the beach to
which it returns is likely to be a
far different place from the one
on which it hatched 20 to 30
years earlier.

OUR VIEW



Tax plan seems a fair attempt at change


W whenever the federal government
hatches a new initiative that en-
croaches on the state's ability to gov-
ern, you can hear the'howls of wounded politi-
cians from Tallahassee to Homestead:
The big guys are meddling in local affairs
again!
So it's been interesting to see the governor
and the Legislature dive into the property tax
issue and come up with a plan that cuts into
the ability of local governments to operate as
they see fit. This time, it's the cities and towns
that get to howl, and they have a point.
Once again, the big guys are changing the
playing field.
But the plan passed last week looks as if it
will cause minimal immediate damage to the
effectiveness of local governments, which have
been planning for it for weeks.
The first step of the plan would force coun-


ties and cities to cut ad valorem property taxes
to 2006-2007 levels. It would also force a cut of
from 3 percent to 9 percent, based on the
growth rate of government in the past five years.
The 9-percent cut would be imposed in
Charlotte County and the cities of North Port
and Venice. Thanks to a last-minute amend-
ment, Sarasota Countywillneedto cut 7 percent
According to the initial calculations, Punta
Gorda's budget would be cut only 5 percent.
DeSoto County would be cut 3 percent,
because it is considered one of the state's 30
"fiscally constrained" counties.
In future years, city and county tax increases
would be capped according to a formula, but
local governments could override the cap with
a supermajorityvote of local elected officials.
This piece of the legislation is most intrigu-
ing, because it puts the onus squarely on the
backs of officials closest to the taxpayers. They


will be forced to justify any cap increases or risk
the wrath of voters.
Considering the options that had been
floated, the first section of the plan may be
something of a relief to local governments. It
will be painful, but it may be bearable.
The second phase of the plan is critical to
future effectiveness. It would require a consti-'
tutional amendment, most likely to be sched-
uled for the Jan. 29 presidential primary, and
would need to be approved by 60 percent of
voters.
The amendment would do away with the
current $25,000 exemption on homesteads. In
its place would go a system that taxes 25 per-
cent of a homestead's first $200,000 property
value. Homestead value from $200,000 to
$500,000 would be taxed at a rate of 85 percent.
Property value above $500,000 would be taxed
at 100 percent.


Alternatively, homeowners could opt to
retain their Save Our Homes 3-percent cap on
property tax increases, though they'd have to
switch to the so-called "super exemption" if
they move.
According to estimates, this will cut taxes for
most homeowners. Above that, however, it will
change the relationship of all homeowners to
local government spending.
In the current system, many enjoy home-
stead exemptions that limit their annual tax
increase to 3 percent, so overall hikes have lit-
tle impact. There will be a much stronger con-
nection in the new system, and much more
concern.
Now, having appeased their home-owning
constituents, our legislators need to tell us how
they plan to make up a projected $1.5 billion
shortfall in school funding, and ensure that tax
relief is felt by all property owners.

You might not have known
that the strongest muscle in

horse has one leg off, it means
the rider died as a result of
wounds in battle, and' if all
four legs are on the ground he
died of natural causes.

LETTER FROM OUR READERS


Reveling in what Venice offers


Editor:
On the bright side: Bags of goodies being lugged from the
farmers' market or, if the time is right,, treasures from a flea
market. Or from an abundance of shops of all sorts on all sides
whose owners and helpers ply you with wine and cheese and.
pleasantries.
These are not franchisees but residents, some of whom
might live upstairs in the over-shop housing that is in such
short supply there ought to be a law requiring it.
The main drag has a waterway at one end and the Gulf of
Mexico at the other and, if it weren't for oaks and palm trees in
the middle, on a clear day you could see them both by just
twisting your neck.
You could head out to a public golf course, a great beach, the
marina where you stashed your fishchaser or just bone up your
boutiquing skills, all within a few minutes' walk.
Venice has all the things you'd expect to find in a city (albeit
probably the smallest you've ever seen), maybe even a surprise
or two. For instance, public facilities in the center. And parking?
Wherever you look, and it's free.
If that's worn you out, I suggest you get an ice cream cone
and sit a spell on one of our many benches while you contem-
plate the two things that have been bothering you: first, this is
clearly a small town, so why do they keep calling it a city?
Second, why don't you live here?

We'll all lose
if art loses
Editor:
I am very troubled by pro-.
posed cuts to cultural pro-
grams in the federal budget
proposed by the president. I
am equally upset by the Sara-
sota County School Board's
proposed budget cuts.
The implications are seri-
ous for this entire state and
the effect this has on our chil-
dren and our unique commu-
nity is obvious.
Our family moved from
California more' than .four
years ago based on the
superb draw of this arts and
culture community and its
public school offerings. We
now have high school-age
children who have benefited
from the richness in the arts
curriculum. One attended the
performing arts program for
dance at Booker, the other
has become inspired to be an
architect.


The president proposed
eliminating funding for the
U.S. Department of Educa-
tion's arts-in-education pro-
grams, which develop and
disseminate school models
for achieving academic excel-
lence through the arts. The
programs currently receive
about $35 million, and they
should be increased to more
than $50 million, not elimi-
nated.
Research has proved that
students with an education
rich in the arts have better
grade-point averages in core
academic subjects; score bet-
ter on standardized tests; and
have lower drop-out rates.
Case in point: This state,
above all, must look at these
facts and reassess priorities
now!
It is time for the Sarasota
County School board to
reflect what's essential and
build the creative class that
this area deserves. We must all


oppose these proposed cuts
before it's too late.

Congress needs
some backbone
Editor:
Any, member of Congress
(both Democrat and Repub-
lican) who did not read the
National Intelligence Esti-
mate and any other intelli-
gence reports they could
obtain, prior to voting us to go
to war in Iraq, did this nation
a great disservice. If they had,
they might have challenged
the president and saved thou-
sands of lives.
United Nations inspection
teams were in Iraq, and.they
could not confirm or find any
weapons. There were doubts
expressed in the intelligence
reports. There were reasons to
question the administration.
We now have concocted
some other good reason for
going to Iraq, but at the time
we were told we needed to act
as a matter of self defense
because Iraq was threatening
us with weapons of mass
destruction. If we had con-
firmed it, the action would
have been justified. That false
report prompted our entry
into Iraq.
Our Founding Fathers had
great insight. They provided
us with a system of checks
and balances. Congress was
independent of the executive
branch. It was expected to
exercise judgment indepen-
dently, regardless of the wish-
es of the executive branch. If
Congress did not investigate
the reports and did not ques-
tion anything, it failed us in
that regard.
Is Congress now indepen-
dently considering its deci-
sions in Iraq, or is it once
again just supporting the
president?


Have we learned anything?

Phil Surowitz
Englewood
He'll speakfor
himself, thanks
Editor:
Where do a few people get
off stating we are all against
any development at the air-
port, when in truth I only
have heard from a few people
who are truly against it?
We need the jobs and the
revenue that development
brings with it.
I own a condo near the air-
port, on East Base Avenue. The
noise is minimal and does not
interfere with our lives; the
fumes barely exist I'm not say-
ing I would want jets flying into
the airport, but the day-to-day
planes we encounter now are
not a problem. Even if they
were, what did you expect
when you bought a home near
an airport?
I've been coming to Venice
for 25 years, and with all the
added'development through
the years the traffic is no
worse than it was 25 years
ago.
We need public marinas,
and I would like to be able to
have relatives stay at a decent
hotel near me, on the island.
I do think they should
leave the golf course alone.
There may be other places to
play, but not at reasonable
prices. I also agree that it's a
better idea not to have an
entrance from Harbor Drive.
If we don't keep up with
development, there's only one
way to go and that's down. I
for one am not going to be
represented by a few people
saying they are the voice of
Venice. I'm me and I'm say-
ing, on with development at
the airport.

VENICE GONDOLIER SUN 7A


Don't spend your tax saving yet


Let's consider all the options


Perspective. City council members have it right: Citizens
should decide what level of service they expect from the Venice
Fire Department. However, there is one small problem with
that approach. It is a matter of perspective. Are we asking the
Venice Taxpayers League, watchdogs of the public purse, or the
mother and father standing on the lawn of their burning house
who are waiting for firefighters to save their trapped child?,
They have far different opinions about the level of service they
expect. The city has successfully outsourced the wastewater
utility department, why not the fire department? Sarasota
County has outsourced crash rescue to Rural Metro. Sarasota
County Fire wasn't interested. VFD maintains the staff and
administrative functions of a much larger department. It
maintains a training facility and staff that serves three stations
while it runs apparatus with just two firefighters. Any analysis
of funding for fire protection services should consider all the
options, not just those favored by the fire department's admin-
istration. Emergency medical services were outsiourced to
Sarasota County; why not fire protection?


Remember. On this Me-
morial Day, I wonder how
many people have helped
make Toyotas the best-selling
cars in the United States.
Those driving other Japanese'
vehicles, think about the Jap-
anese and what the Japanese
did to us at Pearl Harbor and
in World War II.
Resort or town? Simply
stated, the question is, do we
want to live in a resort or in a
town? We vote for our town.
We also wonder how many
Venice merchants actually
live in Venice?
Worthless. The feature
"Ecineville" makes no sense
whatever and is a waste of
good space. I see no purpose
in worthless reading in the
Gondolier Sun.
No recruiting. I just read
your editorial about the
Kiwanis closing its chapter in
the Tampa Bay area. I'd just
like to say that these service
organizations are great, but
they definitely don't reach out
to other people. My husband
and I owned a business on the
island of Venice for 18 years,
and neither the Kiwanis, the
Rotary nor any of the service
organizations invited us to
join. So, maybe they need to
look at the people who own


businesses and the people in
management, make a list and
go out and try to get them to
join. I think they've stopped
recruiting.
Two questions. The discus-
sions we are hearing about
separation of church and
state raise two questions for
me: 1. Should religious
groups trying to pass or influ-
ence legislation on immigra-
tion and health issues be
required to register as lobby-
ists? 2. Should church income
and assets be taxed like any
other business or corporation
and thus share in the legal,
medical and educational
costs associated with illegal
immigration? I hope your
readers will provide some
answers. I don't know.
Opposites attract. Why is it
that those who can see the
least have their headlights on
the brightest during the day
time? Why is it that those who
want to go the slowest always
gravitate to the fast lane? Why
is that?
Psychic. Did you ever won-
der why people call car sales-
man the scum of the earth? I
received a notice in the mail
from a dealership and it said I
was a guaranteed winner of.
one of the following prizes:


$28,000 cash, a 42-inch TV a
Dell laptop computer, a gift
certificate for $250 or a ,$100
bill. The salesman took me to
his desk and took some infor-
mation name and phone
- and then asked for my
Social Security number, tell-
ing me if I won money they
needed to send it to the IRS. I
told him, if I win the money I
will give him my number. He
told me he could not check
my winning number and
there was nothing he could do
about it. When I told the man-
ager the problem, he pulled
out a $250 gift certificate and
told me to go online to claim
my prize. After I left I went to
my car and scratched off to
see my winning number and
guess what? I got a $250 gift
'certificate. How did that man-
ager know that without even
looking at my special num-
ber? My advice is forget about
all the mail-outs. If you want
to buy a car, go to the dealer-
ship on the last day of the
month and offer $5,000 less
than what they are asking.
Don't pay any fees. Don't ever
trade your car in because you
will lose $3,000-$4,000 off the
top.

STEPHEN BAUMANN



If you think you'll see huge
saving on your tax bill after
the special legislative session,
guess again.
The bottom line the
amount you have to pay -
may be higher than you ex-
pect.
That's because most of
your tax bill is exempt from
property tax cuts.
So don't go out and spend
your windfall until the bill's in
the mail.
Let's do the math.
We'll use Sarasota County
as an example, although the
rough arithmetic works for
Charlotte County. The figures,
also are for the unincorporat-
ed sections of the county,
although North Port and
Venice will face similar issues.
The current year's overall
village rate assessment was
13.189 mills. (One mill repre-
sents $1 for every $1,000 of
taxable value.)
Let's assume you have a
property valued at $200,000.
To arrive at your bill, multiply
$200,000 by 13.189, then
divide by 1,000 (a mill). Your
bill is roughly $2,638, accord-
ing to Karen Fratangelo, a
budget analyst with Sarasota
County's financial planning
department.
The 13.189 mill figure is for
your entire bill, though.
Of that, about 55 percent
- 7.21 mills is for schools.
That portion is removed from
the legislative plan.
That leaves the county's
general revenue budget, all
fair game.
Maybe.


This year, that portion
came to 5.979 mills, which
cost $1,196 in our example
bill.
According to the Legisla-
ture's tax-cut plan, Sarasota
County would have to come
in 7 percent lower than this
year's general fund budget. So
for us the 7-percent cut
means a saving of $84, round-
ing up a bit.
There may be a tad bit
more with special assess-
ments worth 1.622 mills -
Sarasota Memorial Hospital,
the West Coast Inland Naviga-
tional District and the like -
subject to 3-percent reduc-
tions.

TAKE A LOOK
To take a look at the Sarasota
County budget, go to the
Web site scgov.net, and click
on the word "budget" in the
col'imn on the right side of
the page. The site contains
information on the current
year's budget, the budget by
departments, past budgets
and a typical tax bill.

But that's about your sav-
ing next year.
Next week, county com-
missioners will begin to figure
out where cuts will be made.
And you can bet there will be
disproportionate weight
placed on "soft" spending.
In Sarasota County, that's
because the sheriff's depart-
ment budget takes up rough-
ly one-third of the 5.979 mill-
age rate. Sheriff Bill Balkwill is
balking at cuts, and he may
be backed up by the governor,
so it's possible cuts won't be
made there at all.
The amount left after that
- 4.3539 mills would bear
the brunt of cuts, which
would come in well more
than 7 percent. This portion
of the budget includes such
services as emergency med-
ical services, transportation,
environmental land protec-
tion, health and human ser-
vices, libraries, recreation and


parks and mosquito control.
A study last week by eco-
nomic analyst Hank Fishkind
addresses the impacts of
those cuts.
Fishkind divides county
spending into three cate-
gories: public safety, essential
services and quality of life.
He makes the point that
the first two categories will
see no cuts or very small cuts.
That leaves the third to get
smacked.
In Sarasota County, Com-
missioner Shannon Staub
said she still expects to try to
pare the sheriff's department
budget.
"Public safety has got to be
No. 1, but it doesn't mean they
get out of this without cuts,"
she said this week.
She said the real cuts will
come in those quality of life
categories, or things "that we
actually control."
And running through the
budget figures Thursday,
county Chief Financial Offi-
cer Jeff Seward said, "The dis-
cretionary stuff will take the
bigger hit, for sure."
That could mean cuts in
human service grants, the
number of. days the libraries
operate, maintenance of
parks and landscaping, code
enforcement and environ-
mental services.
Sarasota County will start
working on a hit list rank-
ing priorities at budget
workshops Tuesday. One
school of thought holds that
commissioners will purpose-
ly cut in the most visible areas
- parks and rec to make
the impact most visible to
voters.
Then again, they may have
no other choice.

Wind is free for young sailors


BY DEBBIE KIEWIET
SPORTS EDITOR :


"You don't feel the water underneath you. It
kind of feels like you're just floating," 11-year-
old Samantha Wood tried tq describe what
sailing is like.
Wood took the two-week sailing class
offered by the Venice Youth Boating Asso-
ciation. The first session ended Friday, and
another one starts Monday. Sessions are held
every two weeks'all summer.
"I hadn't sailed before," Wood said, "but I
wanted to learn because my grandmother is
giving me her old boat, and I wanted to sail it."
Wood's grandmother used to sail when she
was young and so did her mother. "They said
it was a lot of fun, so I wanted to try it," Wood
said. "I thought it was a lot of fun, too."
Classes are offered for ages 9-15 Monday
through Friday, 9 a.m. to noon or 1 to 4 p.m.
Since it started in 1995, thousands of kids have
learned to sail through the Venice program.
For sign-up call 468-1719 or 488-4341 or visit
veniceyouthboating.com.
The headquarters for the Venice Youth
Boating Association is located in the two-story
wooden pram shed at the Venice Yacht Club
on Tarpon Center Drive. Although it is not
affiliated with the yacht club, the two organi-
zations have some board members in com-
mon, and the yacht club is very supportive of
the youth program, according to Jabbo Gor-
don, program manager and racing coach.
They also work closelywith the Venice chapter
of the Florida Women's Sailing Association.

Wind is free
The yacht club is very generous with dona-
tions and contributions, Gordon said, as are
civic organizations in the community such as
the Venice-Nokomis Rotary Club which
donates funds to provide scholarships for kids
who otherwise couldn't afford the $210 for the
two-week course. Enough donations have
been received so far to help about 10 percent
of the kids, he said, but more are always need-
ed.
"It's not just for yacht club members,"
Gordon said. "Sailing or yachting has a conno-
tation as a rich man's game. We try to dispel
that. After all, the wind is free. Our program is
a community program for boys and girls. We
don't want to leave anybody out. If a kid wants
to learn to sail, we'll find a way."
The course covers all aspects of sailing,
according to Sammy Waldron who's been sail-
ing since he was 11 and is in his fourth year as
an instructor. "It's more than just a sailing

Troy Bailas has already signed up for the advanced sailing class this summer at the Venice
Youth Boating Association.


camp," he said. "Each of the kids is responsible
for their own boat."
The first day of the session, the kids buddy
sail and learn to right the boat if it capsizes.
Safety is always a top priority, Waldron said
After the first day, the students are assigned a
boat of their own to sail and take care of for the


rest of the two weeks. The morning session
rigs the boats, and the afternoon session takes
down the sails, cleans the dagger boards, and
puts the boats away. The kids also learn about
the wind, tides, weather and navigation.
"By the end of the two weeks," Waldron
said, "each and every one of them can sail con-


fidently all by themselves."

Water, no hills
The boats used for the class are specifically
made for kids. Designed in 1947 by Clark Mills
of Clearwater, the eight-foot "Clearwater
Pram" was originally a wooden sailboat. It was
commissioned by the Clearwater Optimist
Club which was looking for a youth program
to sponsor instead of the Soapbox Derby.
Sailing was more practical for Clearwater,
which has lots of water but not many hills.
According to Gordon, the design "spread
like wildifire" up and down the west coast of
Florida, then to the east coast and eventually
went international. Now made of fiberglass,
the "IOD" (International Optimist Dinghy) or
"Opti" (for Optimist Club) is now the largest
single sailboat class in the world.
In addition toWaldron, the other instructor
this summer is Charlotte Sims who has been
sailing since she was 9 years old and is teach-
ing for the third year. Waldron and Sims both
came up through the Venice Youth Boating
program and are U.S. Sailing certified.
Waldron was the 1998 Green Fleet National
Champion, and Sims was a member of the
2004 Sears Cup National Champion team.
Three more instructors were certified this
year: Bryan White, Michelle Thomas and Kyle
D'Arcangelis. D'Arcangelis is a key substitute
instructor this summer. White and Thomas
are working with a new two-person class of
sailboat, the "420," for kids who have already
completed the basic course. Thomas was a
member of the Pine View School sailing team
which recently placed fourth at the National
Championships in Long Beach, Calif. Kids
from the year-round program are helping out
with this summer's sailing classes.

Take names
Venice Youth Boating's year-round program
focuses on the racing aspect of sailing, com-
peting at area regattas in Tampa, Sarasota and
Fort Myers. At most of the regattas, boys and
girls all compete against each other, Gordon
said. But a few of the regattas are just for girls.
Gordon is proud of the fact that the Venice
program has so many female sailors, one of
the highest percentages of girls in the state..
"Some of our top sailors over the years have
been young ladies," he said. '"At the Hula Cup
in Sarasota, we take names and kick tails."
For adults who would like to learn to sail,
private classes are available;

Mechanics focus


of hitting/fielding


summer camp


When Sammy Sosa was a
kid growing up in the
Dominican Republic, he used
a plastic milk jug with the bot-
tom cut off for a ball glove.
"Then he had nothing. Now
Sammy Sosa has gloves and
shoes and bats made for
him," Coach Jose Velez said,
holding a glove Sosa had
given him. Sosa and Velez
were both drafted by the Tex-
as Rangers in 1986.
"It took a vision. It took
hard work. He didn't speak
any English. He spoke with a
bat and a glove," Velez told
young ballplayers at last
week's baseball camp at
Venice High School. "What
we do here," he said, "you can
take home with you. It will
pay off."
Drills' were held each day
of the four-day hitting and
fielding camp so kids could
get in plenty of swings. "Rep-
etition is what makes a good
swing," Velez said. "Hitting is
all about timing. The job of a
pitcher is to mess up the tim-
ing."
The annual Home Run
Derby was held .with the fol-
lowing winners: Alex La-
Maida, 6- to 9-year olds; Dal-
ton Guthrie, 10- and 11-year-
olds; and Jared Zech, 12- and
13-year-olds.
"We tried to make it fun,"
Velez said, "but at the same
time we really stressed me-
chanics."
Mechanics of the swing,
stages of hitting, bunting, hit-
ting off-speed pitches, and
adding power and strength to
the swing were all topics of
the hitting side of the camp.

proper mechanics of fielding
the ball on contact.
Coaches and players from
the 2007 State Champion
Venice High School baseball
team led last week's camp as
well as the pitching/catching
camp held the previous week.
High school players helping
out at the hitting/fielding
camp included Chris Ata-
manchuk, Mike Atamanchuk,
Austin Hill, Jason Kaufman,
Sal Licata, Trevor Pelletier,
Brad Schmehl, Graig Smith,
Alec Stiver and Wade Swilde.
On the sidelines at the
camp were moms and dads
and quite a few grandparents,
filling in for working parents.
Elizabeth Sibbett, whose 6-
year-old grandson was at-
tending baseball camp for the
first time, was impressed.
"I sincerely appreciated
the inspirational talks on
sportsmanship and scholar-
ship," Sibbett said. "I was so
impressed. They started and
ended with something inspi-
rational. They talked about
making good choices. They
worked on appreciation,
sportsmanship, role models,
but the big thing was scholar-
ship. At Venice High School,
you don't play sports unless
you are a student.
"I watched the way every-
one worked with these boys,"
she said. "They supported
them good, bad, indiffer-
ent they supported them
equally all the way. The young
boys who came back to help
were all wonderful. They
knew how to handle any situ-
ation. They are a cut above, a
big cut above."

STORYAND PHOTOS BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR
In honor of Father's Day, June 17, that question
was posed to a number of men about town.
Pictured on this page are the respondents and
their answers. The men were selected at random as
they were doing their jobs, walking down the street
or simply sitting on a park bench along Venice
Avenue. You may know some of them.
They had very different responses. Some, like
political activist Herb Levine, quoted their fathers
directly. Others said they learned by example.
That was the case with John Williams, co-owner
of the Farley Funeral Home in Venice.
"He was a family man," Williams said.
He did offer one short sentence, however, the
same advice that Dustin Hoffman's character
received from his father in' the film, "The Grad-
uate."
"He told me to go into plastics," Williams said,
"but he was kidding."
Venice Little Theatre's Artistic Managing Di-
rector Allan Kollar, who recently directed the sold-
outVLT show, "The Rocky Horror Show," knows all
about kidding. He also can be serious. I '
Political activist Herb Levine was spotted out-
side City Hall.
Levine said he was all All-American athlete in
high school and his coaches soon realized that if
one kid went over the line by a certain amount,
Levine would go farther.
Two men who were questioned lost their fathers
to death when young. The first, who did not want to


"Treat people with re-
spect."
"Don't judge someone just
because you think a certain
way."


be named, said he was raised in a series of foster
homes and never had a father figure in his life.
The second said the best piece of advice came
from his mother who told him to go to college.
"My mother pushed," he said, "butlgotit done."
Seated on a park bench on West Venice Avenue,
Sarasota resident Patrick Fielder said his father told
him that "the only thing you have to offer is your-
self."
Up in the air in a cherry picker, doing his jdb as a
lineman with Altec, Jason Foglia said his father told
him to "Save some money."
Venice City Manager Marty Black-said his father
told him don't burn any bridges.
"I can still go back to every place I ever lived and
still have friends." /
Doug Lasswell was stopped after a couple sets of
tennis. "My father was a golf club pro in Englewood
and I was working the counter there one day," he
said. "Two men came in and asked for some beer.
When I'told my father that 'some guys' wanted
some beer, he gave me a look and then said. 'the
people who come in here are gentlemen and ladies,
not 'guys.' I always notice when people say that
today. People notice when you say 'Yes sir' and 'Yes
ma'ain.'"
Lionel Crooks was waiting for his wife to finish
Shopping on West Venice Avenue.
Baker Brown, with his wife Roseanne, runs
Venice Stationers. He said he learned his lesson by
example.

STAFF ESCRITOR

Hang on to your sanity,
ladies and gentlemen. It's
time for News from Ecine-
ville.
"People are worried.
Business hasn't been this
bad since the dust bowls in
Oklahoma in the mid-
1930s," said Ecineville Bus-
iness Development Mar-
keting Director Monique
Seulement.
A three-day emergency
meeting of city and county
staff, a joint planning meet-
ing, has resulted in what
one official, who requested
anonymity, "...a rather
unique, bold initiative to
increase business."
Our source did say some
initiatives are so bold, they
may be illegal.
This source provided the
Ecineville Sun with a list of
recommendations that Eci-
neville staff will present to
city council for approval.
According to the docu-
ment, staff believes that if all
or even a large majority of
the recommendations are
implemented it couldresult
in increased sales for area
merchants.
Some of the staff recom-
mendations are:
"Employees of busi-
nesses that operate within
city limits and individuals
who live within city limits
will be required, under ordi-
nance, to spend a minimum
of 10 percent of their
income, not already spent
on necessary living expens-


es, on discretionary stuff
they don't need. Employers
will withdraw the money
from employees' paychecks
like a tax and put it into a
special account. The Eci-
neville Businesses Associ-
ation will make sure the
money is spent."
"People just passing
through the city limits on
U.S. 14 Bypass and Business
14 will be stopped random-
ly by Ecineville Police. If,
after it's determined that the
individuals in the vehicle
were not planning on stop-
ping in Ecineville to spend
any money, they will be
charged with 'failure to
spend money' and brought
to five businesses where
they must spend a total of
$200 and then they will be
released."
"The 'Buy a Gift for Your
Boss' Fridays will begin
Friday, June 22. The city
ordinance will make it a law
that every employee from
every business within city
limits must buy a gift ($5
maximum) for the boss
every Friday. Each week a
different list of Ecineville
businesses will be posted
from which employees may
buy their gifts."
Happy shopping.
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.

Growing up, I didn't have a dad.
I had a father, biologically speaking, but he walked out of
Iny life so soon I never had any reason to miss him. I got his
last name and his DNA and not another thing. His loss.
I did have a granddad, however: Paul LaCroix.
Though they had already raised their own four children
and helped with a couple others, my grandparents took me
off the hands of my 18-year-old mother and brought me up.
Now, my granddad was 54 when I was born. He had never
been the Little League coach/Scoutmaster type, and those
days would have been well behind him anyway, by the time
I got into baseball and scouting.
No matter; he played catch when I could talk him into it,
made a basketball backboard for me, taught me how to shoot
pool.
I was a junior in high school when my grandmother died
after a long illness. Though their relationship was never a sto-
rybook romance, my granddad took the loss hard his part-
ner of 45 years was gone, and his domestic skills were limit-
ed to frying (charring, really) meat and opening a can of veg-
etables for dinner. Like many men of his generation (he was
born in 1903), he had never done the laundry, never bal-
anced a checkbook.

So we spent the next few years raising each other. He
learned that you don't bleach blue jeans; I tried not to com-
plain too much when he got me up earlier than I would have
liked on Sunday morning to drive him to church.
After I graduated from college, I moved to Gainesville, part
of preparing to go to law school. I got him to sell our old
house and move in with me, to keep an eye on him (though
he had the constitution of an ox) and to try to repay an oblig-
ation that was likely a debt only in my mind, not his.
In 1984, during my second year of law school, my grand-
dad went to Michigan to visit my aunt. An aneurysm in his
stomach burst, and I never saw him again.
He's frequently in my thoughts, though, especially when I
tell my older boy, Evan Paul, about "great-granddad Paul,
who you're named after."
My children came rather late in life, but I'm glad of that.
One of the problems in America today is that there are way
too many fathers and not nearly enough dads.
Siring children makes you a father; desiring children starts
you on the long road to being a dad. Just being there for your
kids is the major difference.
One man in my life wasn't there, one was.
Thanks, Gramps.

Celebrating our military


GRAPHIC COURTESY OF NAPSA
The National Purple Heart Hall of Honor celebrates Purple
Heart recipients.


FROM NAPSA


Americans have a new way
to salute the men and women
who have earned Purple
Hearts defending the nation.
The National Purple Heart
Hall of Honor was recently
opened and now receives
nearly 100 visitors a day. The
Hall is the first of its kind
in the nation to recognize
the more than 1.7 million
Americans wounded or killed
in action while .serving in the
United States military. It will
become the nation's sole
repository of soldiers' stories
of sacrifice.
More than 300,000 stories
from individuals who earned
the Purple Heart are stored at
the Hall of Honor. However,
only about 5,000 have been
edited and are currently avail-
able to be viewed by the pub-
lic.
"Please give us time to cat-
alog and edit those thousands
of stories," said Don Hughes,


a retired Air Force three-star
general and one of the per-
sons responsible for creating
the Hall of Honor. "We are
working to solve the prob-
lem."
The Hall of Honor, located
in New Windsor, N.Y.,
includes a 7,500-square-foot
facility with a reception area,
gallery, exhibit hall, learning
and education center for
school groups and a presen-
tation room. Through histori-
cal photographs, documen-
tary films and videotapes by
veterans, the Hall will provide
a multimedia show, exploring
the spirit of the American
fighting man and woman in
times of crisis.
Families who would like
to share their story or mate-
rials of Purple Heart recipi-
ents to be considered for
exhibition, should contact
the National Purple Heart
Hall of Honor, P.O. Box 207,
Vails Gate, NY, 12584 or call
(845) 561-1765.

There is plenty of parking downtown in the summer


JeffO'Berry the new chair-
man of the promotions com-
mittee for Venice MainStreet,
asked everyone at a recent

town in the sU mmer by

"In most cases you can park
right in front of the store," he
said.

rived in here via Italy and the

was in charge of marketing
her husband's paintings.

Celebration
"Usually the bride has a
short aisle to walk down, but
beautiful Ashley had the
whole boardwalk," said
Tassie Hodge describing her
daughter-in-law.
"The breeze blew her veil
back and it was lovely,"


Hodge said. At the end of the
boardwalk, at Casey `Key
Beach, the groom watched
and waited.
Casey Hodge and Ashley
Brown were married recently,
and the Rev. Tom Hodge of
First Baptist Church of Venice
officiated at his son's wed-
ding.
In addition to the tradi-
tional vows, Tom Hodge had
the couple recited the bible
story of Ruth promising,
"Where you go, I will go."
Ashley and Casey chose a
small, simple wedding sur-
rounded by family and a few
close friends.

Why and how to talk to your


loved ones about aging issues


The U.S. senior population
is growing and expected to
double over the next 25 years.
More than 12 percent of
Americans are senior citizens
and, by the year 2011, the first
wave of the baby boomer gen-
eration will begin turning 65.
As America ages, increasing
numbers of seniors and their
adult children will face critical
decisions about life, health
and aging. ,
A new nationwide survey,
commissioned by WellPoint
and conducted by the Roper
Public Affairs and Media
Group, found a notable dis-
connect between seniors and
their adult children on critical
health and aging issues such
as losing independence, long-
term care options and being
alone. The survey found that:
* Adult children believe their
senior parents worry more
about aging issues than they
actually do;
* Seniors are comfortable
talking about important aging
issues but don't do so often;
* Each generation is waiting
for the other to start the con-
versation; and
* Medicare is a big area of
confusion for adult children
of senior parents.
To meet the needs of the
growing and diverse senior
population, WellPoint, 'the
nation's largest health bene-
fits company, has launched a
new long-term educational
initiative Connecting the
Generations to help se-
niors'and their families facili-
tate conversation-'" about
important health and aging
issues and proactively plan
for the future. Connecting the
Generations is designed to
provide valuable education
and support to help fill the
"gaps" in information be-
tween seniors and other gen-
erations to create a com-
munity at large that is more
informed, engaged and
equipped to address impor-
tant aging issues.
Starting the conversation
According to the Roper
Survey, 60 percent of adult
children say they talk regular-
ly to their senior parents
about health matters yet
only 32 percent of seniors
report discussing health top-
ics regularly with their kids.
"Talking regularly about
important issues related to
aging, health, living indepen-
dently and financial security
can be a positive experience,"
said Dr. Edward Schneider,
Dean Emeritus of the Leonard
Davis School of Gerontology
at the University of Southern
California.
"For seniors, engaging in
these conversations helps as-
sure them that they have a
proactive plan for the future.
For adult children, discussing
important life issues can offer
peace of mind, knowing they
have the necessary informa-
tion to help their parents as
needed."
The time is now
The 2006 Medicare enroll-
ment period provides an ex-
cellent opportunity to broad-
en the conversation about
aging. WellPoint's Connecting
the Generations program rec-
ommends the following tips
to help you start the conver-

finances.


station:
Get the ball rolling by
sending a quick note or e-
mail, making a phone call or
just mentioning there are
issues that you've been think-
ing about.
Next, arrange to meet in
person, if you can. Choose a
time and place where every-
one can focus on the conver-
sation.
Before, meeting, make a
checklist of the topics you'd
like to discuss and, if appro-
priate, share it with the other
person as the conversation
starter-- or use the Cqpnept-
ing the Generations checklist
as a starting point.
Before the meeting, sib-
lings should reach a consen-
sus on goals. Don't feel the
need to cover all the topics in
one discussion; it may take a
few conversations.
Ideally, families want to
have a health plan in place
before health problems arise.
For seniors, this means talk-
ing to your loved ones about
your current health situation
and providing them with the
important information they
will need to help you in the
future.
How active and engaged


you are in life can make a
tremendous difference in
how you age and your overall
quality of life. For seniors, it's
important to make sure
you're keeping physically and
mentally fit. For adult chil-
dren, you can do a lot to help
and encourage your parents
to live well.
Helpful information
Connecting the Genera-
tions includes tools and re-
sources for seniors and their
families, including the "Con-
necting the Generations Con-
versation Guide" a 24-page

mation 'for initiating conver-

aging issues, with practical

Visit a car-free city, Zermatt, Switzerland


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER


Any where you look in
Zermatt, Switzerland, you can
see the Matterhorn. In winter
the snow-covered peaks are a
breathtaking sight. In sum-
mer and spring the the air is
crisp and clean.
There is more to the city
than just the striking moun-
tain views.
Almost all vehicles in
Zermatt are battery driven
and almost all are completely
silent. Horse-drawn vehicles
are equipped with bells and
they entertain tourists as they
jingle by.
But don't worry, you can
stroll and shop the busy
streets in safety.
The mountain village of
Zermatt is one of the great ski
and climbing centers of the
world. It is neatly located in a
deep valley enclosed between
mountains.
When you step off the train
and catch sight of the cobbled
streets and horses with
sleighs patiently waiting for
their rides, you know you are

SUN PHOTOS BY SUSAN CAIRO
When you get off the train in Zermatt, you are greeted by bat-
tery-operated or horse-drawn taxi cabs that take you to your
hotel.


.N; . ,-
You can view the Matterhorn from the top of the Gornergrat Mountain. There is a snack bar and
restaurant and even an outdoor dispenser of beer for the thirsty climber.


Horse-drawn carriages take tourists through the town and up
into the mountains to a glacier.


in a special place. The air is
fresh and alpine. There are no
impersonal tour buses belch-
ing out noise and fumes.
Package-tour tourists walk to
their hotels. Zermatt is not an
auto through-route. The train
stops here. All journeys
onward are on foot or skis.
Everyone is in Zermatt
because they love the moun-
tains and walking through the
cobbled paths of town.
Zermatt is a small village
about 15.20 miles ong from
one end to' the another. It is
flat, so it is easy to walk
around quickly and without
effort.
The streets are lined with
chalet-style shops, restau-


rants and hotels adorned
with colorful flower boxes.
The picturesque walk has an
old-world charm.
Even if you don't ski or
mountain climb, the town
has enough activity to keep
any tourist busy.
Almost everyone speaks
English in Zermatt and credit
cards are taken everywhere.
The dollar is not.
A must-do is the trip on the
Gornergrat Railway to the
Gornergrat skiaroa. Once on
the train, you will see gor-
geous views of the Matter-
horn.
Instead of riding the train
back to the bottom, you can
hike and make a few stops


along the way at different
restaurant terraces for spec-
tacular views of the moun-
tain. You are also able to get
off and on the train at differ-
ent stops.
Skiing
Zermatt has the longest
winter skiing season in Eur-
ope and has some ski runs
and lifts that are open year-
round.
It has 114 miles of skiing
with a 5,315 foot vertical.
Zermatt has Europe's highest
lift-served terrain at the top of
the Klein Matterhorn glacier,
more than 12,800 feet up. The
scenery is fantastic. There are
a few ski areas for beginners,
but most of the skiing is best
for intermediate and ad-
vanced skiers. '..
All of the skiing opportuni-
ties make it an ideal choice
for intermediate or experi-
enced skiers looking for a
short ski break or a longer ski-


Passport requirements are being eased through Sept. 30


FROM TRAVELFAMILYFORUM.COM

Tried getting a U.S. pass-
port recently?
If you weren't stymied by
the lines at the post office for
an application form, or had
the kids' digital photos reject-
ed because the quality wasn't
adequate, then you've proba-
bly learned how the estimat-
ed eight-week lead time
turned into 10 weeks, then 12
weeks and now 14 to 16
weeks. In short, if you and
your family applied for new
passports after President's
Day with the hope of traveling
abroad for the July Fourth
weekend, you may not have
them in time. Now, in an
unexpected show of flexibility
and reason from the United
States government, you won't
need them.,
On June 8, after enormous
lobbying efforts by elected
representatives who were be-
sieged by unhappy constit-
uents, the U.S. Departments
of State and Homeland Se-
curity announced that they
will permit U.S. citizens trav-
eling to Canada, Mexico, the
Caribbean, and Bermuda
who have applied for but
not yet received passports -
to enter and depart from the
United States by air with only
a government-issued photo
identification and Depart-
ment of State official proof of
application for a passport.
This temporary accommo-
dation to permit some foreign
travel by air is in effect until
Sept. 30.
Background
As anyone who likes the
occasional vacation knows by
now, the U. S. government's
Western Hemisphere Travel
Initiative (WHTI) requiring
passports for travel by air to


Canada, Mexico, the Carib-
bean and Bermuda (in addi-
tion to all the other countries
that required it prior to this)
took effect on Jan. 23, 2007.
Despite heated debate and
intense lobbying efforts by
the travel and tourism indus-
tries and neighboring govern-
ments, it wasn't much of a
surprise, and additional pass-
port requirements for land
and sea border crossings will
be enacted as early as January
2008.
The demand for passports
has been steadily increasing.
According to the Department
of State, for the first eight
months of Fiscal Year 2007
(October 2006 to May 2007),
the department issued 10.3
million passports, a 37 per-
cent increase over the same
period last year.
Since theWHTI took effect,
demand has soared, and the
department anticipates issu-
ing 17.5 million new pass-
ports by year's end.
Despite the addition of 280
passport specialists, expand-
ing in-person applicant inter-
view hours to Saturdays, and
increasing production at
passport processing centers
to a 24/7 schedule, the gov-
ernment has finally conclud-
ed that it can't keep up with
citizens' needs to go on vaca-
tion.
"Accordingly, we're allow-
ing flexibility because we are
hearing about more cases of
Americans missing flights,"
said the Department of State's
press release. "As a service
organization dedicated to
helping Americans, we can-
not let this happen."
What you need to know
Families who planned
ahead by applying for pass-
ports may travel within desig-


nated areas of the Western
Hemisphere, through Sept.
30, by using their application
receipt forms as temporary
passports.
Adults who applied for but
not yet received a passport
must present government-
issued photo identification
and an official proof of appli-
cation from the U.S. De-
partment of State to airport
officials when traveling.
Children under the age of
16 traveling with their parents
or legal guardian will be per-
mitted to travel with the
child's proof of application.
Children traveling alone
should carry a copy of their
birth certificate, baptismal
record or a hospital record of
birth in the United States as
identification, in addition to
the child's proof of applica-
tion.
Note: The new regulations
imply that children from 16 to
18-years of age are now ex-
pected to carry their own gov-
ernment-issued photo identi-
fication with their passport
applications, but we were not
able to confirm that this was
an intended change of policy
at press time.
To get their passport appli-
cation receipt, travelers must
go online to http://travel.
state.gov if they have a pend-
ing passport application. At
this address: http://travel.
state.gov/passport/get/sta
tus/status_2567.html, appli-
cants may check the status of
their application and print
out a receipt (make several
copies) for display to authori-
ties.
Travelers who have not
applied for a passport will not
be accommodated, so last-
minute vacation planners
might as well apply now.
(There's some more flexibility


here, too. Travel to and from
Canada and by Canadian citi-
zens to the U.S. will be judged
dn a case by case basis, due to
other security negotiations
between the two countries,
and U.S. Customs and Border
Protection agents are allowed
a "fudge factor" to permit
entry in some instances when
the above requirements are
not met.)
Note that this accommo-
dation does not affect entry
requirements to other coun-
tries. Americans traveling to a
country that requires pass-
ports ie: most outside the
Western Hemisphere or in
Europe, Asia and Africa -
must still present those docu-
ments.
U.S. Department of State
advice to travelers
Travelers who have applied
for passports should monitor
the status of the application
online at travel.state.gov/
passport.
Customers may track the
progress of their applications
within one week of applying.
The online status check will
verify that the application is
in process, and will update to
confirm that the completed
passport has been mailed.

If a customer is within two
weeks of travel and the Web
site does not show that the
passport is completed, travel-
ers should call the National
Passport Information Center
(NPIC) at (877) 487-2778 for
information and assistance in
arranging to have their pass-
ports ready for their trips.
Families who benefit from the
flexibility permitted for travel
to Mexico, Canada, the Carib-
bean and Bermuda,. do not
need to contact the NPIC
about their applications, as
this will slow the process for
everyone.
Instead, the Department of
State will continue to process
your application and mail
your passports.
Expedited passport ser-
vices are available for an addi-
tional fee, with wait times cur-
rently estimated at two weeks.

Hiking
Gornmergrat has 242 miles
of hiking trails, some harder
to climb than others. But the
views are worth it.
Offering some of the best
views for hikers in the
Zermatt region, nature walks
range from an easy stroll to
vigorous hikes.
There are a number of Al-
pine lakes accessible through
easy trails that require no
strain at all. The rewards are
worth the walk: beautiful
views, uncrowded trails, fresh
mountain air, downhill paths,
wildflowers in bloom and
scenic rest spots.

Swift fox the name's descriptive!


Up where they


belong


When I first saw the small,
buff-gray fox whose coat
shaded to a sort-of yellow-tan
color on its sides and legs, I
wasn't exactly sure what
species I was seeing. I knew it
wasn't a red fox they're the
only species of fox with a
white tip on their tails. This
animal had a black tip on its
tail. And it didn't look quite
right to me to be a gray fox,
either.
The swift fox is considered
endangered in Canada; in the
United States it's only recent-
ly been removed from candi-
date status under the En-
dangered Species Act. I guess
I can be forgiven for not rec-
ognizing such a rare species.
In the Southwest, this species
is called the kit fox due to its
small size (baby foxes are
called kits). The swift fox is
North America's smallest fox
at about 5 pounds in weight
and just 12 inches in height,
30 or so inches in length.
We've had much bigger house
cats.
By the way, swift foxes can
reach speeds of 25 miles per
hour.
Swift foxes are being hel-
ped to make a comeback.
They'd gotten down to about
300 in Canada, when a cap-
tive-breeding program was,


begun in 1973 at the Coch-
rane Ecological Institute in
Alberta. This successful effort
was supported by the Wildlife
Preservation Trust of Canada.
They began releasing animals
back into the wild in 1983 in
southern Alberta and Sas-
katchewan.
This reintroduction pro-
gram was brought into the
United States by the Blackfeet
Nation in Idaho. The swift
fox's original habitat included
the Western grasslands of
Canada and the United States
as far south as Mexico. Today
they might be seen in only 10
percent of their original
range. In the United States
they're found only in portions
of Idaho, Montana, South
Dakota, Wyoming, Nebraska,
Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma,
New Mexico and Texas.


In the past, swift foxes gen-
erally fed on the leavings of
wolf and bear kills. But there
are too few of these predators
now for this to be a reliable
source of food for these
bright, nocturnal canines,
who hunt continually from
dusk to dawn. Today, they are
more likely to feed on mall
mammals (rabbits, prairie
dogs, ground squirrels, mice),
birds, reptiles, insects, fish,
berries and seeds.
They mate for life, produc-
ing four or five kits in a litter,
usually born between Feb-
ruary and April. In Canada,
litters arrive a month or so
later. These babies begin to
disperse in September, and
parental responsibility ends
then.
The present swift fox pop-
ulation owes its existence to a


dedicated small group of peo-
ple who care about animals. If
the story of this little-known
species intrigues you, and
you want to help them con-
tinue to survive, you might
want to contact the Cochrane
Ecological Institute in
Cochrane, Alberta, Canada.
They're on the Web.
I was deliglihed to en-
counter this litle fo.x species.
It's nice to "discover" some-
thing new. And I thoroughly
enjoyed watching my tiny,
new fox "friend" who tried to
stay hidden from my sight.
Thankfully, it wasn't com-
pletely successful in that
effort.

winning photographer See

It's rare to see a nocturnal swift fox during daylight, like this one, but it's a delight to encounter
- and be able to photograph a species I've not seen before.

BY DONNA KOLAKOWSKI
PET FRIENDLY SHELTERING

As we enter the 2007 hurri-
cane season, planning and
preparation for the possibility
of sheltering or evacuation is'
a top priority. After the 2004
storm season and the after-
math of. Katrina, a personal
emergency plan has become
a part of our daily lives.
The one part of planning
that still seems to be a bit of a
mystery is the answer to the
question, "What do we do
with our pets?" The haunting
images of lost and aban-
doned companion animals in
Mississippi and Louisiana
have made pet owners sit up
and take notice. Your pets are
a part of your personal etner-
gency plan. So, the question
is: Are You Ready?
Safety
As you get your kits ready,


make sure you include every-
thing you need to ensure your
pets' safety should you have
to go to a local shelter or evac-
uate. Although there are
emergency shelters that will
be "pet friendly," these are
shelters of last resort. As
responsible pet owners, it is
our duty to prepare for their
care as well as our own.
Your kit should include at
least three days of food, water
and supplies for your pet. You
will also need a crate large
enough for them to move
around in and a copy of their
current vaccine record and
rabies license. Don't forget
the leash, collar and cleaning
items necessary to provide a
sanitary space for your pet. A
favorite blanket, toy or pillow
will comfort them. Cats will
need litter and a pan, and all
of our furry friends love a treat
now and then.
If you find that you must


go to a shelter, remember that
all of the above items are nec-
essary to gain entry to the
shelter. Also, your pet will be
kept in an area away from the
human sheltering area, so be
sure to bring everything your
pet needs to be as comfort-
able as possible. Also, only
cats and dogs are allowed in
pet shelters, and you must
remain in the shelter with
your pet. The best solution is
to arrange a plan in advance
with your veterinarian or
boarding kennel should you
need to evacuate.
Remember that the best
plan is to be prepared and
stay informed. If you need
more information on prepar-
ing for a disaster with your
pet, visit petfriendlyshelters.
org or e-mail petfriendlyshel
ters@verizon.net.
Proper planning will help
you, your community and
your pets be prepared.

PHOTOS PROVIDED BY PREMIER HOMES OF SOUTH FLORIDA
From the top: The family room, eating nook and master
bedroom of the award-winning Malibu model by
Premier Homes of South Florida is one of two models
featured in their new model center. The other is the
Fairbrook.


By DONNA DAVIDSON
Flrruiis EorroR
Premier Homes of South
Florida takes pride in
bringing the epitome
of Florida living to the
designs of their homes.
All their floorplans are
embellished with custom
architectural details by the
builder.
Whether a homebuyer
wants to build on their
homesite or move into a
fully completed home,
Premier has a solution.
With more than 20 years
of building experience,
Premier's commitment to
quality workmanship and
integrity is traced through
every step of construction,
in the materials used and, of
course, it really shines in the
finished home.
They have built hundreds
of homes in the North Port,
Port Charlotte and Rotonda
area and live up to their
name Premier Homes.
Without a doubt, the new
Premier Homes Model
Center featuring the Malibu
and the Fairbrook models,
should be on your short-list
of homes to see before
making your final home-
buying decision.
This new addition to the
Premier Homes of South
Florida LLC family is located
at 1137 East Price Blvd., in
North Port, Fla., just east of
Toledo Blade.

The Malibu
It's easy to see why the
Malibu was the recipient
of three awards in the
Charlotte-DeSoto Building


Industry Association's 2007
Parade of Homes one for
having the "Best Outdoor
Living," space, another for
having the "Best Bathroom,"
and the "Grand Award." The
Malibu has won numerous
awards for design and flow.
Just walking through the
large round columns at the
front entry of the "Malibu"
into the spacious greatroom
exudes the warm feeling of
home. Vaulted ceilings and
triple sliding glass doors
overlooking the lanai and
pool area create the feeling
of a refined, but casual,
Florida lifestyle.
The placement of the
family room is accessible,
but tucked away from the
main areas. The kitchen
design will please the most

For the more formal meals

square feet of living area,
this three bedroom, two-
and-one-half-bath layout
makes the Malibu a perfect
family or entertaining home.
It is also available in four-
bedroom, two- or three-bath
and three-car garage
versions.

The Fairbrook
The Fairbrook model, the
first in the lineup of Premier
Homes' nine floor plans, is
in itself a tribute to good
design and livability. With
three bedrooms, two baths
and a two-car garage, the
Fairbrook still offers a large
house feel and amenities in
a smaller footprint with an


even more affordable price.
While smaller in stature,
there is no compromise in
quality and attention to
detail. Potential homebuyers
enter the front door, and are
instantly wowed by the
beautiful bold, but neutral,
colors of the model and
livable placement of furni-
ture.
The vaulted ceilings and
wide open greatroom create
the sense of a much larger
home. There is plenty of
room for a big-screen TV
and wall unit, surrounded by
a cozy seating arrangement.
The kitchen design mirrors
the same culinary rules of
efficiency as the Malibu.
The Fairbrook offers two
dining areas perfect for the
casual family meal or a more


formal dining affair. The
sliding glass doors in the
greatroom open onto the
large screened-in patio,
offering a beautiful environ-
ment to relax or to dine el
fresco.
The Fairbrook split-floor
plan captures Premier's
award-winning flow and feel.
The master bedroom easily
accommodates king-size
furniture and features an
inset for the bed (not your
ordinary square room). The
spacious master bathroom
features a double-entry, very
oversized closet, separate
shower tiled to the ceiling
and an enclosed toilet area.
The second bedroom is 12-
feet-4-inches-by- 11-feet-6-
inches and the third bed-
room is 12-by-12 feet with a


walk-in closet, both of which
can easily accommodate
queen-size furniture.
Because of the thoughtful
architectural design, even at
2,430 overall square feet and
1,684 square feet of living
area, you will be amazed at
the spacious feel and livabil-
ity of the Fairbrook.
It is also available with an
alternate master bath layout,
three-car garage, and
covered, screened lanai.
For additional informa-
tion, please stop by the new
Premier Model Center
located at 117 E. Price Blvd.,
North Port, FL, or call 941-
429-2200.
Premier Homes' Fairbrook
Model is smaller than the
Malibu, but a jewel.

practices. The goal was to
simultaneously and signifi-
cantly exceed building code
requirements while reducing
the cost and time associated
with construction. The
results are evident in the
company's designs.
Community Designs
homes are constructed of
steel and high pressure
concrete. Every structural
panel is buried in the slab
and welded to the next
structural panel. The steel
trusses are then welded to
the frame. A metal lath
welded to the structural
panels wraps the house and
the concrete is applied
through the lath on the
exterior. The inside walls and
top chord of the trusses are
filled with water-blown
foam, creating an exterior
wall and roof with an energy
value of R-30 vs. R-8 in a
block home.
The homes offer extreme
storm resistance, Energy Star
ratings, low maintenance
costs and exceptional
insurance cost savings. The
homes are essentially storm
proof, bug proof, fire proof
and mold proof because
there is no wood used in the
construction of the home
other than the wood in the
installed cabinets, yanities
and interior doors/trim.
In addition, all of the
products approximate the
best available from appli-
ances to high grade PET
carpet to Congoleum Duro-
stone composite tile to all
wood cabinets.
Community Designs does
not provide allowances and


then upgrade. Everything is
built into the "turnkey"
price. As an additional
feature, the attic is sealed,
offering homeowners
valuable conditioned storage
attic of conditioned air
space.
The principals of Commu-
nity Designs are local
professionals: Don Sepulski,
an architect; Phil Calvert, a
general contractor; Dean
Merrill, a program manager,
and Raymond Kaiser, a
community planner.
They are all dedicated to
the tenets of "green" build-
ing. Their homes incorpo-
rate the best ideas and
products of others, have
been designed to blend into
any Florida community, and
are built to withstand the
worst the local environment
has to offer.

CONSTRUCTION FEATURES:
Lifetime Construction.
Galvanized Steel and
Concrete Welded Unibody
Construction 51/:2-inch,

together and capped with a
16 gauge tie-beam which is
welded to each stud. Con-,
crete coating is continuous
creating a monocoque shell.
SAXET Construction
Load Bearing Wall Encapsu-
lation Bottom 24-inch of
every load bearing stud is
encapsulated in the mono-
lithic pouring of the footers
and slab, virtually eliminat-
ing wall shear.
Steel Trusses/Double
