Tiki House

talks fail

to settle

differences

BYJACKGURNEY.
PELICAN PRESS

Casual bars and outdoor
restaurants situated along
scenic Florida waterfronts
have been popular customer
attractions for decades, but
one by one many have suc-
cumbed to population growth,
development pressures and
changes in attitudes.
A popular tiki bar just west
of the historic swing bridge on
Blackburn .Point Road has
been closed for several years
now, and it's beginning to
appear a combination of gov-
ernment red tape and neigh-
borhood opposition will keep
it that way.
Located next to the Casey
Key Fish House on Little
Sarasota Bay, it used to host
hundreds of boaters and walk
up patrons on surrounding
decks and docks.
Then Sarasota County or-
dered it closed in 2004 for a
list of reasons that started
with neighbors' noise com-
plaints.
Owner Jiql Von Hubertz,
who still opera'res the highly
successful fish house restau-
rant and bar next door, would
like to reopen the tiki bar. He's
sued, negotiated and tried
just about everything to mol-
lify local authorities, but
nothing has worked.
"We went to mediation for
six hours in late May," he said,
"and I thought we had a deal.

An assistant principal at
VMS who is moving up to
replace former principal Jack
Turgeon, Schmidt is happy
she gets to keep working on

also worked, though not at
the same time. Two years ago
she paired up with Turgeon as
one of his assistant principals
at VMS. Turgeon was recently
appointed principal of Brook-

Stadium negotiations over; now to sell it


Rent? What rent?


BY RICK BARRY
PELICAN PRESS

The negotiations are all but
over; the sources of revenue
for the dream Cincinnati Reds
stadium have been identified.
Nice-looking concept plans
have been drawn up.
A binding city-county
agreement, will be finalized
,this week, protecting county
i.taxpaye-wadR4-puttg city
homeowners firmly on the
hook for the project, includ-
ing all cost overruns, annual
operating and maintenance
costs (now estimated at about
$750,000 a year) and any
other unforeseen stadium-
related expenses.
Now, all that remains is to
convince a majority of the city
of Sarasota's 31,588 registered
voters that they should cast
ballots Nov. 6 to tax them-
selves about $26 a year for a
$250,000 home roughly the
average city property's taxable
value or proportionately
more for more expensive
homes.
New stadium proponents
will be quick to point out that
those taxpayers are already
shelling out more than $20 a
year for the existing Ed Smith
Stadium bond issue, but that
one expires next year when
the new bond issue payments
will kick in if the stadium is
approved.
So, they'll doubtless be
hearing- For just an additional
$5.36 a year per household,
the community can have this
beautiful new recreational
complex, a state-of-the-art
baseball stadium and concert
venue.
As Sarasota Mayor Lou
Ann Palmer pointed out to
the task force, "We've got to
stop hearing this referred to
as the 'Cincinnati Reds' stadi-
um,' and start emphasizing it
is the community's stadium."


Diamond days
In the last year, however,
facility managers can think of
no non-baseball events that
have taken place in Ed Smith
Stadium.
Palmer said she is still
pushing for the Reds baseball
team to take over construc-
tion management of the pro-
ject, and to pony up a bit
more money up front, at least
in part as a selling point for
her campaign for a facility she
still considers a major com-
munity asset, well beyond


baseball.
The new $53 million stadi-
um by the current plan will be
built atop and around the
existing stadium, and will be
paid for from revenues from
the hotel/motel bed tax
($21.5 million); the city bond
issue ($14.25 million); a state
grant ($7.25 million); and the
next 20 years worth of "rent,"
plus team purchases of furni-
ture, fixtures and equipment
for their use that the Reds and
boosters have valued at $10
million the Reds' "contri-
bution" to the $53 million
construction project.
What will actually put a lot
more of the "community" in
the project, however, will be
a second new field now
planned for the existing park-
ing lot at the southwest cor-
ner of 12th Street and Tuttle
Avenue.
But that $2 million project,
plus another $4 million to
replace the lost parking, has
depleted the touted savings
from rebuilding over the
existing stadium.
Veto
The Reds' professional,
farm club, instructional and
rookie league teams play
games at Ed Smith about half
the year. The Major League
franchise uses it on other
occasions as well, including
fantasy camps, demonstra-
tions and the like.
Plus, the Reds will, in
effect, have veto power over
what other events espe-
cially non-baseball events -


might one day be staged on
the stadium field, the Reds'
manager of Florida opera-
tions, Jeff Maultsby, con-
firmed recently.
Perhaps the biggest boost-
er of the stadium on the
county commission is Joe
Barbetta, who believes it will
have a substantial positive
economic impact on the
community. He cites a
University of Florida study for
Indian River County which
estimates it will cost the area
$40 million a year when the
Los Angeles Dodgers leave
Vero Beach for Glendale,
Ariz., next year.
Calhoon contends Ed
Smith Stadium and the Reds
bring $60 million a year to
Sarasota's economy. After the
improvements that figure will
jump to $84 million, he pro-
jects.
No campaigns
Such estimates have critics
among academics who say
that sales-tax revenue com-
parisons (before and after a
team arrives or leaves) rarely
support such high numbers,
and that if baseball fans quit
coming, hotel rooms and
restaurants will quickly be
filled by others, especially in
the winter season.
Barbetta points out that
farm club games and high
school and other amateur
tournaments, which have
been using Ed Smith, bring
business in the summer,
when occupancy rates aren't
90 percent.


But he is not going to push
for passage of the critical ref-
erendum this fall.
"I will answer questions
when people ask me," he said.
"But I won't be campaigning
for it."
Palmer no doubt will.
Others might join her. Or not.
Former City Commission-
er Elmer Berkel, who lives in
the area of the stadium and
has attended virtually every
stadium-related meeting, op-
poses it. He says it's because
the deal amounts to "cotpo-
rate welfare."
He won't be mounting an
organized campaign against
it, he said, because he firmly
believes it will fall at the ballot
box "of its own weight."
City Commissioners Dick
Clapp and Kelly Kirschner
have not been supporters of
subsidizing the Reds spring
training stadium either, but
did support letting the elec-
torate decide, as did every
other commissioner, city and
county. Clapp said he would
campaign neither for nor
against it.
"I'll just let the people
decide," he said.
"But when I was cam-
paigning, knocking on the
doors of likely voters, they
were 100-to-i against it.
Maybe that group is not the
group that goes to baseball
games ... but they are the
ones who are going to vote on
the stadium."


BY RICK BARRY
PELICAN PRESS

For months now, the city of
Sarasota's point man on the
controversial $53 million new
stadium proposal and other
boosters have pointed to the
Cincinnati Reds' $10 million
contribution to the construc-
tion project as evidence of the
team's good faith.
That, and an agreement to
stay in Sarasota for 30 years.
Then it became clear that
the team's $10 million would
come not in cash, but in the
form of its purchase of neces-
sary furniture, fixtures and
equipment to finish out the
project to team standards,
plus unspecified in-kind con-
tributions, all totaling $5 mil-
lion. Then, its promise to pay
its rent (an estimated
$248,000 a year) for 20 years
would make up the remain-
ing $5 million.
On learning from the city's
sports facilities manager and
project leader Pat Calhoon
that the team currently pays
about $225,000 in rent, some-
thing just didn't seem right.
The city is going to spend
more than $40 million re-
building the stadium and
adding a second "premier"
field with lights and 1,500
seats. Then it's going to pay 20


years of interest on a $16 mil-
lion bond issue and foot
the bill for a projected
$750,000 a year to maintain
and operate the complex -
and the team's rent only goes
up $23,000 a year? That's less
than $2,000 a month.
Then, this week, informa-
tion from the city finance
department clarified the situ-
ation: You see, the Reds don't
actually pay any rent. None.
That $248,000 "rent" is
money the city is projected to
get annually from a small
share of the Reds' ticket sales,
half of parking revenue and a
concessions surcharge, none
of it guaranteed. It still leaves
the city coming up way short
on cash to operate and main-
tain the place.
This year, the city's revenue
share will come up $494,000
short of paying for mainte-
nance and operations at the
complex. Next year that sub-
sidy is budgeted at $423,000,
according to the city finance
department.
When the new field is
added and infrastructure is
more extensive after the new
stadiums' construction, no
one knows how big the annu-
al shortfall between the city's
share of stadium income and
operating and maintenance
costs will be.

Jennings campaign failed to pay payroll taxes


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

At the time. congressional
candidate Christine Jennings
was accusing two of her
opponents of tax shenani-
gans, the candidate herself
was racking up at least
$23,000 in unpaid federal
taxes on her own campaign's
payrolls, Federal Election
Commission reports show.
Jennings, a Democrat and
a former bank president, paid
no payroll taxes for her 2004
campaign committee "Chris


automobile insurance com-
pany in the Turks and Caicos
Islands. That allowed Bu-
chanan to avoid paying a
state licensing fee.
Buchanan also got paid
with a penthouse condomini-
um instead of cash in a law-


suit settlement. That saved
him some $265,000 in income
taxes, according to Kochman,
Jennings' spokesman.
And Buchanan disputed a
1992 claim by the IRS.
However, Buchanan ulti-
mately won that case in court,


reports show.
Kochman said he sees a
"big difference" between the
tax oversight by Jennings'
campaign and Buchanan's
efforts to avoid taxes.
"He had multiple schemes
to avoid paying taxes, includ-


ing an offshore insurance
company, a questionable deal
on a condominium and a $1
million settlement for back
taxes with the IRS," Kochman
said.
Sally Tibbetts, Buchanan's
spokeswoman, said: "It is sad


that instead of taking respon-
sibility for her failure to pay
$120,000 in taxes for three
years, Christine Jennings has
lashed out with negative
attacks on others."

gmartin@sun-herald.com


Jennings Buchanan

Jennings for Congress" until
May 23, when the committee
paid $23,835. The payment
came more than three years
after the committee's first
salary payment.
Jennings also paid no pay-
roll taxes on her committee,
"Christine Jennings for
Congress," until July 31, 2006,
about 13 months after that
committee's first payroll in
2005. Between July and
December 2006, Jennings
then made some 15 payments
totaling more than $100,000
on that committee's payroll
taxes.
"There was a mistake in the
campaign payroll," said David
Kochman, spokesman for the
Jennings campaign. "Once
Christine found out about it,
she moved quickly to take
care of it.... So all the federal
taxes that were owed were
paid. She even used some of
her personal funds to take
care of it. She also imple-
Imented controls so it won't
happen again."
The campaign hired a ser-
vice a year ago to handle pay-
roll and taxes, he said.
Disservice
Despite the corrective
actions, stories about the past
tax delinquency sparked
some political backlash this
week.
"It's more than ironic," said
Jan Schneider, fellow Demo-
crat who ran against Jennings
for the seat in 2004, on
Wednesday. Jennings' cam-
paign had attacked Schneider
over an improper property tax
exemption on Schneider's
Washington, D.C., condomin-
ium. "It's a shameful hypo-
crisy."
The story about Jennings'
taxes was first published
Tuesday in The Hill, a Wash-
ington, D.C., political publica-
tion. The article was subse-
quently disseminated via e-
mail to Florida newspapers by
the National Republican
Congressional Committee.
Vern Buchanan, a Long-
boat Key Republican, won the
2006 election against Jen-
nings by fewer than 400 votes.
Jennings has challenged the
results citing problems with
Sarasota County's voting
machines because of an
abnormally high number of
blank votes in the race.
Jennings also recently
announced she is running
again for the seat in 2008.
Schneider contended that
nasty campaign advertising
by both Jennings and Bu-
chanan contributed to the,
high number of blankvotesin,'
the race. The negative adver-
tising did a "disservice to the
voters," Schneider said.
Kochman, however, said
the way the story got dissemi-
nated shows that the national
Republican committee is
"worried about Vern Buchan-
an ... and their spin machine
is full gear."
Lashing out
In her 2006 campaign,
Jennings called into question
the trustworthiness of Bu-
chanan by citing his past tax
issues. They included the fact
that Buchanan owned an

Drought hangs tough;


water restrictions extended


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

Despite the return of near-
normal summer thunder-
storms, rivers, lakes and aqui-
fers remain far below normal
levels throughout Southwest
Florida.
With that in mind, the
region's water management
agency voted Tuesday to ex-
tend water restrictions until
the end of September.
With only about two
months left in Florida's wet
season, water supply officials
are concerned they won't be
able to store enough water to
get through next year's dry
season, according to Robyn
Hanke, spokeswoman for the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District.
"We need above average
rainfall for the water re-
sources to rebound," she said.
The district's governing
board agreed to extend until
Sept. 30 a water shortage
order issued in January. The,
order, which restricts lawn
watering throughout the dis-
trict to one day per week, had


been set to expire Tuesday.
The decision came after a
presentation by district staff
outlining the conditions of
water resources throughout
the district, Hanke said.
In the Peace River basin,
some counties saw substan-
tially below normal rainfall in
July while some experienced
near-normal rainfall.
Despite that, the Peace
River was flowing far below
normal Tuesday. Its flow mea-
sured 317 cubic feet per sec-
ond in Arcadia compared to
its historic average for that
day of 1,900 cfs, according to
the U.S. Geological Survey.
The 16-county district has
seen nearly a foot less rain in
the past year compared to the
historic annual average.
The Green Swamp Basin,
which is the headwaters for
the Withlacoochee, Hillsbor-
ough and Peace rivers, saw.a
16.1-inch rainfall deficit for
the year.
As a result, all the major
rivers and aquifers have re-
mained below normal, said
Hanke. District staffers, in
their report, labeled' the


northern region of the district
"critically abnormal" and the
southern region "severely
abnormal."
The drought has also ham-
pered the Peace River Mana-
sota Regional Water Supply
Authority's ability to recharge
its reservoir and under-
ground wells.
The authority reported in
July that its reservoir had
about 250 million gallons, less
than half its normal level this
time of year. The authority's
aquifer storage recovery
wells, which can store more
than a billion gallons, were
also depleted.
September review
The board, at its next
meeting Sept. 25, will review
the condition of the water
resources. The board will then
decide whether to continue
- or ratchet up the restric-
tions,,said Hanke.
Tuesday's order, which
continued "phase 2" restric-
tions, limits water use from
both water utilities and pri-
vate wells or surface waters to
one day per week.

Watering restrictions


Sarasota County
Sarasota County reminds
all residents of the following
landscape and irrigation water
restrictions. These restrictions
apply whether the source of
water is a well, pond or a utili-
ty system.
Even addresses (house
numbers ending with 0, 2, 4, 6
or 8) may water only on
Tuesday.
Odd addresses (house
numbers ending with 1, 3, 5, 7
or 9) may water only on
Thursday.
Common areas with no
address, such as median or
roadside plantings, clubhouse
or recreation areas, may be
irrigated only on Tuesday.
The maximum amount of
water applied is limited to
three-quarters of an inch in
each irrigation zone, once, on
each allowable watering day.
Property smaller than 2
acres can water before 8 a.m.
and after 6 p.m.
Property larger than 2
acres can water before 10 a.m.
and after 4 p.m.
Exceptions to water restric-
tions
Flower beds, vegetable
gardens and other nonlawn
areas may be irrigated as
needed using a hand-watering
device with a shut-off nozzle.
These areas may also be
watered using micro-irrigation
and other forms of horticul-
ture appropriate, low-volume
irrigation, on any day of the
week.
Newly planted lawn and
landscape areas may be
watered any day of the week
for a 60-day establishment
period that begins the day the
plant material is installed. New
plantings must be at least 50
percent of the planted area.
However, no irrigation is per-
mitted between 8 a.m. and,
6 p.m.


Car washing is limited to
once per week; however,
fundraising events are still
allowed.
Guidelines for
well owners
As a result of below-average
rainfall amounts, some area
wells cannot draw water from
current groundwater levels.
Because significant rains that
would raise the water table are
not expected soon, Sarasota
County has issued the follow-
ing guidelines for residents
about their well systems.
If you are losing water
pressure from a well that can-
not draw water, call the En-
vironmental Health Division of
the Sarasota County Depart-
ment of Health, 861-6133.
The wells affected are
those of older construction
with surface pumps. No new-
er, larger-diameter wells with
submersible pumps have re-
ported any problems.
Some wells can be retrofit-
ted with a submersible pump
or can have the existing drop
pipe lowered. Property owners
will need to check with a
licensed water well contractor
or a pump company to see if
this type of repair can be per-
formed.
In some areas, residents
may be able to connect to
existing county water lines.
Sarasota County Utilities Per-


emitting can check on water
availability and provide infor-
mation on connection costs,
fees and financing options.
If county water lines are
not currently accessible on a
particular street, residents "can
contact Sarasota County
Program Management to
determine if an assessment
can be established that would
enable them to receive county
water service.
For more information,
contact the Sarasota County
Call Center at 861-5000 to
reach Utilities Permitting or
Program Management.
City of Venice
Residents in the city of
Venice may water their lawns
once a week unless they are
using reclaimed water, which
is not restricted.
Those with addresses end-
ing in odd numbers, or letters
A through M, may water on
Thursdays;'those ending with
even numbers, or letters N
through Z, may water on
Tuesday.
New lawns may be watered
on any day during a 60-day
establishment period, begin-
ning the day of planting.
All irrigation must be done
before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m.
Washingvehicles and hand-
watering landscape shrubs are
allowed any time. Hoses must
have shutoff nozzles.

Seabird rescuers get extension from city


BY RICK BARRY
PELICAN PRESS

A small but growing cadre
of Sarasota seabird lovers is
getting involved in the cam-
paign to raise money to
rebuild the old Pelican Man's
Bird Sanctuary on City Island,
and resume the rescue and
rehabilitation role once filled
by the sanctuary's late found-
er, Dale Shields.
Lee Fox's 17-year-old Wi-
mauma-based seabird res-
cue/rehab group, Save Our
Seabirds, has all the neces-
sary licenses and experience
to take over the job if the city
grants it a nominal lease for
the old City Island sanctuary.
But the city is sticking to its
guns about requiring SOS to
show it can raise cash, grants
or pledges totaling $200,000
to rehabilitate the dilapidated
facility and get its programs
-off the ground.
The $200,000 figure was
actually supplied by Save Our
Seabirds after surveying the
condition of the old Pelican
Man leasehold.
A city selection committee
has, however, given SOS a 90-
day extension to recruit a


corps of local supporters and
raise the money.
"I think the city has been
very, very understanding,"
Fox said. "But it is a difficult
time to raise money. A lot of
people are not here during
the summer, people are on
vacation with their children
- even October is pretty early
for snowbirds to return."
Fox said she has raised just
$28,000 so far, "so we do have
a long way to go but I do think
the city would like to see a
program like ours in there."

Good news
Wildlife rescuer David
Kidd, who worked for the
Pelican Man several years
ago, will have some good
news for Fox this week. While
doing rescues for Fox and
other rehabilitation opera-
tions in the Tampa Bay area in
recent weeks, he has been
"educating" the people who
call to report struggling birds
- often pelicans tangled in
monofilament fishing line -
and telling them of the op-
portunity to resurrect a badly
needed facility here under the
auspices of Save Our Sea-
birds.


By earlier this week he had
already obtained pledges to-
taling another $22,000.
"When I explain to people
how we are going to do
things, that we are going to do
things right for the animals,
people have been willing to
help," he said.
Kristen Richelieu, also a
former Pelican Man sanditi-
ary volunteer and the owner
of a Lakewood Ranch child
care-learning center, said she
is just beginning a fund-rais-
ing program, and agreed that
summer is a difficult time.
But the need is very real, she
said.
People are still finding sea-
birds in need of help, she said,
but there's no facility here to
call or take the birds to, "so
they're just dying."

Uphill battle
Sarasota Audubon Society
President Jeanne Dubi has
signed on, too, and will reach
out to all the members of her
organization and local bird-
ers for help next honth. '
"It's going toibe a real
uphill battle" hi;e said, "but it's
an important onde. We're all
very concerned about our


seabirds and their habitat,
and we're especially con-
cerned now that the Pelican
Man sanctuary has ceased to
function.
"We hope fervently that we
can do something to help,"
she said, noting that her
annual letter to members will
include an appeal to help
SOS, "and apprise them of the
seriousness of the situation.".
"These birds are a vital part
of our community. People
come down here, in part, to
see the abundance of our
wildlife, especially pelicans
and other seabirds diving into
the bay. This would surely be
a poorer place to live, if we
can't protect these birds."
Don Chaney, who's active
in the Sierra Club and other
environmental organizations,
is helping SOS, too.
"We need to organize an
event to help focus public
opinion on the effort," he
said. "If we can do that, I think
(the fundraising campaign) is
doable, I really do."
Chaney said the group has
already' had some local con-
tractors volunteer hours to
help with the renovation of
the sanctuary pr6oerty, and


"a lot of people do recognize
the need for a bird rescue/
rehabilitation facility here.
"I just hope we can get it
done."

Hands on
The old Pelican Man sanc-
tuary property will revert to
parkland if the SOS bid falls
short.
It wouldn't take much
demolition. Except for one
building that will be rehabili-
tated and used by the Sara-
sota Bay Estuary Program, the
rest of the facility is in rough
shape. Major plumbing and
electrical work is necessary
just to disconnect service to
run-down structures that are
no longer usable or below the
flood plain even before
new construction of cages
and hospital facilities can
begin.
Fox said her fundraising
challenge is hampered by a
number of factors, most
prominently the reality that
some people are reluctant to
give to a program that is just
starting.
"They like to be able to see
and touch the facility" they're
giving to, she said. .


Why is Venice
special to you?


Tired of the doom and
gloom? Sick of the griping?
Puzzled why, if things are so
bad, so many people still
choose to live in the Venice
area?
So are we.
Even when the economy
isn't running on all cylin-
ders, there's still no better
place to live than Venice.
After all, the things that
attracted us here in the first
place are still there: sun,
sand, golf, Gulf...
That's where you come
in. We want to know why
you love Venice. Is it the sun-
sets? The fishing? The arts
scene?
Whatever it is that
brought you here or keeps
you here, we want to know.
Send a short note about
what makes Venice special
to you to bmudge@venice
gondolier.com, or I Love
Venice, 200 E. Venice Ave.,
Venice 34285. Once a week
we'll pick one and feature it
in the paper.
Also, we'll keep track of
the responses and, wheh we"
run out of them, we' lletyou
vote for your favorite. ,
Tell us why you love en-
ice.

renewed emphasis on wel-
coming parents and involving

"Her knowledge and expe-
rience with curriculum and

Double duty
Part of Schmidt's responsi-
bilities as principal of VMS is
being the principal of Oak
Park South. It was decided
earlier this year the two
schools would combine ad-
ministrative forces.
Schmidt said she is pretty
confident about working with
Sandy Bowen, assistant prin-


cipal of Oak Park South, and
his team.
"I think together with my-
self, we make an excellent
team," she said.
Working with students
who have special needs is not
new for Schmidt. While work-
ing as a middle school assis-
tant principal in Virginia, she
also served as the director of


special education.
Schmidt said one of her
goals for VMS is to more
closely align the curriculum
with state standards. She
complimented her school's
ability to maintain its "A"
grade, as well as its Florida

Signals
The DCA is sending signals,
that indicates it may not like
the way the agreement was
written, according to Black.
Part of the problem, as
Black described it, stems
from the lack of administra-
tive regulation or guidelines
for city and county officials to
follow.
In fact, Black said, when
DCA officials were first con-
tacted they appeared un-
aware of the new law.


"It's driving us nuts.
We're anxious to vali-
date the agreement."
Venice City
Manager Marty
Black, commenting
on the state's delay
in reviewing its
joint planning
agreement



Now, DCA is flexing its reg-
ulatory muscle.
Their concerns are "all
process," Black said.


Nevertheless, he's getting
less and less optimistic about
the outcome. He wants the
DCA to act on the agreement
one way or the other.,
"It's driving us nuts," he -
said. "We're anxious to vali-
date the agreement."
More hoops
The law authorizing JPAs
as a way to enhance compre-
hensive planning was passed
two years ago, and state offi-
. cials had plenty of time
before last January to begin
implementing regulations,
but they dididnt, Black said.
Eager to move ahead with
joint planning and be the
first parties to enter into a JPA
city and county officials
decided to forge ahead with-


out the regulations.
Since then, the Venice-
Sarasota County JPA/ILSBA
has been used by the DCA as
a model agreement, Black
said, making it all the harder
to understand the DCA's
delay. .
Black said he hopes the
city isn't penalized or asked to
jump through more adminis-
trative hoops because it was
the first to enter into a joint
planning agreement.
"Let's not make it about a
checklist that wasn't made,
and now that it's made we
have to follow it," he said.
DCA public information
officers were not available for
comment.

I promised the county there

thing down by 9:30. But the
county wouldn't agree."
Von Hubertz and his attor-
ney, Robert Lincoln, still have
a circuit court case pending
against the county, but pro-
spects for a settlement dim
the longer it drags out.
"This is by no means
dead," Von Hubertz said.
"We're currently- doing some
more research."
What Von Hubertz is up
against are the provisions of a
1970 state legislative that pro-
hibits commercial expansion
on the north end of Casey Key;
environmental restrictions in
county commercial marine
and marine park zones; and
federal flood regulations.
Which ones apply to the
tiki bar site, and what actually
took place on the property
before each of them was
enacted, is the stuff lawyers
get rich arguing over. So far,
VorrHubertz has been willing
to foot the bills and keep
plugging away. : I
In 2005, the 'county com-


mission tried to head off a
lawsuit over the tiki hut when
it directed lawyers to examine
the state-approved conserva-
tion district language and
determine whether it could
be locally amended to resolve
the dispute.
But when the influential
Casey Key Association circu-
lated a letter that promised
"petition drives" and "proac-
tive legal steps" if the county
attempted to either dissolve
or amend state regulations,
the commission retreated.
"This site has a number of
problems," Assistant County
Attorney Gary Oldehoff said.
"Most of them involve what
county, district and federal
rules allow. The tiki hut is at
ground level and runs afoul of
FEMA (Federal Emergency
Management Agency) regula-
tions."
There are currently no
more scheduled hearings be-
fore Circuit Judge Becky Titus,
who is presiding over the
case, and Oldehoff refused to
speculate on what might hap-
pen next.
"I don't know whether this
is at a dead end," he said.
"The ball is in his (Von Hu-
bertz') court."

OUR VIEW



Here's to lean, mean, bean-fueled machines


S arasota County government may be in
its mid-summer slowdown, but staff
members made two announcements
recently that show the county's commit-
ment to sustainable living practices.
It shows that sound policies keep working
even during vacation time.
The first announcement came from the
county's "automotive resources team" the
old motor pool.
The county announced it would immedi-
ately begin buying biodiesel, described as a
mix of 95 percent traditional diesel fuel and
5 percent biofuel made from soy beans. The
mix is being used in the 580-vehicle diesel-
powered fleet, which now uses roughly 1
million gallons of fuel per year. Doing the
math, that saves 50,000 gallons of diesel fuel.


Fleet Manager Greg Morris estimated the
soy fuel could cost a couple of cents more
per gallon, depending on daily price fluctua-
tion. But he noted in a press statement, "The
big benefit is the reduction in fossil fuel con-
sumption and harmful emissions."
He's got that right.
The overall benefits of biofuels are still
'open to debate. Some scientists and econo-
mists calculate it makes little sense, given
the amount of petroleum-based fuel needed
to grow, harvest and 'convert beans into
usable automotive fuel. But the process
seems to have won the general endorsement
of the scientific community, and it makes
overall sense to put a renewable resource in
your tank.
Morris also noted bean-fuel was better for


engines because of its lubricating qualities
and better for the environment because of
decrease in noxious exhaust.
It certainly seems to be another move in
the right direction.
Another step was highlighted by the
county's announcement of the latest "green
business partner," theVenice-based compa-
ny VR. Allard & Associates, a home-based
marketing company that concentrates on
"green business" principles in its marketing
strategies.
Allard joins 12 other Sarasota companies
with the Green Business Partnership seal of
approval. The program, begun with a state
grant, highlights companies that demon-
strate a certain level of environmentally
sound business practices.


For example, the Venice Golf & Country
Club is a certified partner because it recycles
more than half of its waste, buys recycled
products, uses rechargeable batteries for
golf carts, composts grass clippings and
debris, uses native plants and has no-fertil-
izer zones near waterways, among other
things.
The benefit for the company is that gets to
tout its "green" practices with an official stamp
of approval. The benefit for the county is that
this provides another incentive for a business
to use sound sustainable practices.
Converting 5 percent of a fleet's fuel to soy
may seem to be a small thing, as does one
more company with a Green Seal. But each
little step adds up, and it may just persuade
others to join the parade.


We've been invaded


DON BY
GUEST COLUMNIST

No, not by little green men
or some Third World country.
What I am speaking of is
something we actually invited
to our state decades ago: the
Brazilian pepper tree.
The Brazilian pepper tree
is a native of Argentina, Para-
guay and Brazil. It was intro-
duced to Florida as an orna-
,mental plant in the mid
1800s.
That is not surprising,
since they grow fast and be-
come covered with festive red
berries right around the holi-
days. That is the positive side.
The bad news is that our
climate and habitat are not
unlike their native home, so
they grow like mad. And
because they are a non-native
species, they have no natural
enemies here. They also read-
ily propagate by their berries.
Birds love the berries. You get
the picture.
Everyone hates weeds,
especially farmers. But non-
native invasive plants are
weeds of natural areas.
According to the Uni-
versity of Florida's Cooper-
ative Eitension Service,
"Non-native invasive plants
are those that form self-sus-
taining and expanding popu-
lations within plant commu-
nities with which they were
not previously associated.
They are weeds in natural
areas because they displace
native plants and associated
wildlife, including endan-
gered species, and can alter
natural processes such as fire
and water flow."
The list of invasive species
in the state of Florida is very
long. The Brazilian pepper
tree is at the top of the list. If
there is an open area in your


community, you probably
have Brazilian pepper trees.
So how do we get rid of
these "guests"? (You may ask
yourself that every winter.)
Just cutting the trees down
won't help. They will sprout
back from the stump. If they
have berries when you cut
them down, that just spreads
the berries; more trees. So
what can you do?
Your best bet in the Venice
area is to get in contact with
Venice Area Beautification's
own Pepper Patrol headed up
by Dorothy Bombera.
This dedicated group of
volunteers spends most
Thursday mornings clearing
Brazilian pepper trees from
the area along the Venetian
Waterway Park and other
parks in the Venice area.
These folks know what it
takes to actually rid an area of
Brazilian pepper trees.
It is unlikely that Florida
will ever conquer the Brazil-
ian pepper tree. However, as I
am writing this article, it
occurs to me that we as a
community may have a
unique opportunity.
Since a large part of Venice
is situated on an island, per-
haps we could eliminate and
prevent the recurrence of
these invaders on the island.
This would require a huge
effort by many volunteers,
but that is not a unique oc-
currence in the Venice area.
Imagine an area of Florida
that had no Brazilian pepper
trees.
If you would like more
information on the Pepper
Patrol or how to control
Brazilian pepper trees, con-
tact Venice Area Beautif-
ication Inc. at (941) 207-VABI
or visit our Web site, vabi.org.
I am sure Dorothy would
welcome more volunteers
and Monty Andrews, our resi-
dent master gardener, is a
wealth of knowledge.,
Perhaps we can make the
island of Venice even more
unique in the state of Florida
- no Brazilian pepper trees.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Can we see some numbers, please?


Editor:
Successful companies tell their employees that basically
they work for the stockholders, and that the company is there
to make profits, not sell goods and services.,
Plans to produce and sell additional products are carefully
scrutinized to include all potential new costs, to be sure that a
profit can be realized. Cities presumably would feel obligated
to accept only new growth that is profitable and improves the
quality of life for its current residents.
Proponents of new growth at the airport are quick to point
out that the growth will contribute to the tax base of Venice.
Indeed, the Sarasota County tax assessor will determine the
amount of taxes paid to Venice and other taxing bodies like
Sarasota County. But he will not guarantee that the tax paid on
the new construction will cover the full costs generated on the
community.
The city will likely make some optimistic estimates that
police, fire and utilities will be covered. But no fully detailed
studies including minor costs are ever produced.
In a planning commission session, it is common to hear
comments like, "Increased congestion is tolerable," never,
"Congestion will 'delay local residents a total of 200 hours a
year; at $10 an hour that's $2,000."
Recent impact fee increases, plus conclusions that the fees
are still inadequate, are blunt admissions that recent growth
has not paid paid for itself.
Perhaps the city would hire an unbiased consultant to cal-
culate if development at the airport is profitable for Venice.
Probably it won't.

The dog isn't the story
Editor:
"Zeus goes home" was an
undeserved front-page news
article about a dog that bit a
Verizon serviceman doing his
assigned duty. The overjoyed
owners, according to the arti-
cle, state what a grand, glori-
ous homecoming Zeus will
receive new toys, sleeping
on a queen-size bed (wow!),
even describing the menu to
be prepared for Zeus.
It gripes me that not one
word in this article mentions


Vindgassen
Venice


the dog owners' concern for
the person who was bitten.
Did they even call him or,
heaven forbid, go to see him
to express their feelings?
I believe County Judge
Galen was wrong in disre-
garding the law and overturn-
ing her original verdict. Some
of us readers would like to
know more about the condi-
tion of the victim and not
hear about the rewards of the
attacker.
Bill Baxter
Venice


EDITOR'S NOTE: So far the vic-
tim has chosen to speak only
through his employer. In astate-
ment referred to in an earlier story,
he did not say hethought the dog
should be put to death.

Hillary is all about power
Editor:
When we read a New York
Times best-seller, do we read
it so fast that it disappears
from memory? Such must be
the case with "Unlimited Ac-
cess," by former FBI investi-
gator Gary Aldrich, who was
assigned to the Clinton White
House to make sure the
Clintons and our country
remained safe.
He states that the Clintons
should never be allowed to
enter the White House, even
on a guest pass.
Hillary had such contempt
for our security that investiga-
tion forms were stacked in a
comer, and hiring proceeded.
She knew many she hired
would not have been accept-
able because of drug use and
past behavior.
Also, the guards at the gate
were fooled by an easy
change to passes.
Does anyone remember
that she banned all military
uniforms from the White
House? Or that many long-
time employees quit because
of the unchallenged drugs
and sex? And that the Blue
Room Christmas tree, toured
by children, was trimmed
with drug paraphernalia and
sex items?
Hillary's Senate campaign
reports were false, and a civil
suit continues, since June


(2001. Naturally, her attorneys
will put off all of the laws the
Clintons have broken, which,
reportedly, are many.
Every book written about
Hillary depicts her desire for
power. No matter who she
has to fool into thinking she is
a moderate, she has Marxist,
socialistic and communistic
leanings.
No use to make a lot of
money it will be highly
taxed and used for her social-
istic programs.

Unanswered questions
about murders
Editor:
I am very upset about a few
things with the way these
arrests have been handled,
but I will focus on three
issues: '
1. Why was the 15-year-old
girl released? What message
does this give to other trou-
bled teens?
2. Why are the accused
only charged with second-
degree murder? They showed
premeditated intent by carry-
ing a rifle. And it appears that
the victims were forced to lie
down and then executed.
3. None of the five can
deny the presence of a rifle in
the commission of this crime.
It's secondary, in my opinion,
as to who pulled the trigger.
May God have mercy on
the victims' families.

murder, and I know they'll get
what they deserve. However, I
think abortion is needed until
the people of the world stop
thinking about themselves
and what they want, and
focus on what they need (like
that's ever going to happen).
Plenty of people have kids
because they want them, not
because they need them.
The last thing the world
needs is 50 million more peo-
ple polluting their home,
struggling to survive, raised in
bad homes because their par-
ents are selfish and irrespon-
sible.
The world wants people to
think about it (nature) before
they think about babies.
People should think about
what kind of future they're,
bringing children into.
Can't you put off your want
(baby) and focus on you and
your future child's needs?
I'm against murder, just
like you. We just have sepa-
rate definitions of the word.

A close shave for freedom


Hairy issue. I have no idea how many of you folks are aware
of the following: In order to become a Taliban terrorist, mem-
bers must wear a beard. Therefore, in my estimation, all men
wearing facial hair are terrorists or so inclined and should
therefore be treated as such. Now, don't tell me that you have
been sleeping with one for years. Beware!

town, and everyone there
spoke about how lovely it was
that we had such a thing' I
love the beach, but I don't'
think you can compare the
Venice fountains with their
cool and colored dancing
waters to the hot, sandy
beach and saltwater. I hope
we find the money to keep it
going.
Happy faces. This is about
the water park. This has been
a really good thing for Venice.
The elderly enjoy it as much
as the children. It gives them
pleasure and happiness. They
pack a little lunch and they
watch their grandchildren
having fun. From what I un-
derstand, it's recycled water.
We finally have something for
people who can't afford to be
driven to the. beach. We're
able to walk down to the
fountain to see some happy
faces with the smaller chil-
dren.
I've seen the elderly just sit-
ting there enjoying the facili-
ties with the fun that they see
these little babies having. To
me, it's no waste at all. It's
something Venice needed for
a long time and I'm so glad
that we have it. I've been here
for 39 years, I'm an old lady


and I enjoy it very much.
A waste. Kudos to the per-
son who called in about the
children's fountain. I agree,
what a waste. It's an accident
and a lawsuit waiting to hap-
pen. It should be shut down
due to safety concerns, health
concerns and water conser-
vation issues, And by the way,
the downtown business peo-
ple are complaining about
parking. How many parking
spaces could have been add-
ed in that area? At least a doz-
en. Why don't we take up
more room with a downtown
skate park or some pony rides
or a miniature train ride? I'm
sure the same 10 kids will use
it.
Swept away. I don't object
to the water park in the center
of town; however, maybe the
hours could be regulated.
Perhaps we should just use it
three times a week. It was very
expensive putting all that in
there to begin with. None-
theless, talk about, budget.
What about street sweepers?
My gosh, you feel like
you're living in the 1800s. We
have a street sweeper that
wakes us up every Wednesday.
morning on the island here. I
don't know why we need
street sweepers anymore. I
think we keep America beau-i
tiful. That's a pretty expensive,
;venture considering gas,:
trucks and employment to
run it. I'd like some comment
about street sweeping.


New heights. I've been
wondering. We've passed all,
these ordinances that let peo-
ple build all these high-rise
condos. Do they have to pro-
vide a fire truck that reaches
that high as part of their im-
pact fees? If not, there could
be a real issue further down
the line.
What about Dave? Could
you please give some infor-
mation about Dave Barry, the
humor columnist? It seems
like you're wasting a lot of very
valuable space in the paper
printing his stories over and
over again. The first time, sec-
ond time, very good, but on
and on, it's a little bit much. Is
he ill? Is he retired? What is the
scoop and why doyou keep
wasting precious space in the
paper when you could be
telling us something else?
Editor's Note; Dave Barry put
his column on hiatus some time
ago.but his syndicator has provid-
ed previous columns to newspa-
pers to run, as Barry is a very popu-
lar writer and occasionally puts out
new material. What do you say,
readers: Keep'Dave or cut the
reruns? '
Fresh breath. The fountain
has provided a breath of fresh
air on the island of Venice. It's
wonderful to see young chil-
dren -with their families
laughing and playing on the
island. As for the comments
regarding injuries and law-
suits, most of the fountain
users are chaperoned. Elderly
people are as prone to injuries
as these children. Young and
old are the fabric of a prosper-
ous community. Mr. or Mrs.
Grinch who wants to close the
fountain, go live somewhere
else, as far as I'm concerned.,
Can't compare. The lovely
children's fountain is an asset
to Venice. I have lived here for
22 years, and I think this is
one of the nicest things that
Venice has done for young
people. I cannot believe that
the little expense of the water
is near the expense spent on
golf courses. I was there last
night with my grandchildren,
ages 6 and 8, and I enjoyed it
as much as they did. The col-
ored waters are beautiful and
the laughter of the happy chil-
dren made a very relaxing and
wonderful evening. Older
children and adults were par-
ticipating- and visiting with
others. Some were from out of

'Half-backing' helps home sales


Remember this fashion name: JoeLee


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


The latesttrend in the real
estate market is "half-back-
ing," according to Golda Rade-
feld, area manager of Chelsea
Title Company.
"Our friends and neigh-
bors who moved away are
coming back," said Radefeld.
Realtors confirm this new
and most welcome phenom-
enon is occurring in Venice.
"You don't miss something
Wiiftil you leave it," said NMary
Mayo, a Palm Realty Group/
ERA Realtor, 802 Pinebrook
Road, who within the past few
days has welcomed a family
returning to Venice.
Considering Venice too
hot, they sold their home in
January, bought a New Eng-
land property and, after mov-
ing in, did not like the cold.


Realizing it was not as nice
as Venice, they sold and
returned.
"It is a great sale time, with
prices down especially on
new construction, although
they chose a resale invest-
ment property and got a great
deal," said Mayo.
Adjustments
Mayo's clients aren't the
only people who couldn't cut
their ties to Venice.
"A guy sold his property in
2005, moved to Texas, then
decided he really liked Flor-
ida," said Bonnie Price, Real-
tor with Richard Bradway &
Associates, 215 W Venice Ave.
She said her client realized
after moving away there was
nowhere else in the United
States besides. South Venice
that's close to the water at
prices in the $200,000 range.


Since market prices have
adjusted and Venice proper-
ties are where they are ideal
for re-investment, people are
realizing it is time to get back
to Venice, according to Price.
"I have seen home buyers
return after college, starting
their careers and looking to
raise families," said Matthew
Nelson, real estate and mort-
gage consultant. "It's no sur-
prise, as this is avery safe area."
A professional couple
recently returned to Venice
having lived in a trendy retire-
ment area of Ashville, N.C.,
according to Nelson.
"It seems whatever the
draw- taxes, insurance, cool
weather-when the dust set-
ties, there is no place to live
like the Florida Gulf Coast
and obviously no better time
to buy," said Nelson.

Goodwill bookstores serve teachers


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


Goodwill stores, particu-
larly its new bookstores, are
proving a valuable resource to
teachers preparing for the
new school year.
Many teachers who supply
classroom libraries are find-
ing they can stretch their dol-
lars by book-shopping at
Goodwill bookstores.
"The selection is unbeliev-
able," said Christine Amber-
son, a visiting teacher from
Chicago. "I could not believe I
would find something like
this here, when I could not get
it in the big city where I teach.
Even with shipping I'm way
ahead of the game."


Amberson created 95 per-
cent of her second-grade.
classroom library at a cost of
$130 including shipping.
"The Sarasota bookstore
was the first Goodwill book-
store in the country," said
Don Roberts, Goodwill Man-
asota president and CEO. "It
was duplicated with a second
bookstore in Manatee, and
we have seen the concept
spread to dozens of other
Goodwills throughout the
U.S."
Each bookstore contains
25,000 volumes at any time,
which have been inspected,
cleaned and carefully catego-,
rized. Prices range from 39
cents to $2.99. Paperbacks are
priced at 60 percent of the


cover price; .collectible first
editions and autographed
copies are individually priced.
Although there is no book-
store in South County, Patsy
French, marketing and com-
munications director, report-
ed she had recently received
four calls from Venice teach-
ers requesting information.
"We do have book depart-
ments in our stores," said
French.
The Sarasota bookstore is
at Bee Ridge Road and
Cattlemen, 343-9743, and the
Manatee bookstore is at Tara
Boulevard and State Road 70,
751-1666. Both are open
seven days a week.

Will Venice become known
as the birthplace of an inter-
national fashion designer to
compete with Dior and Ver-
sace?
Proud dad David Macree
believes his daughter, Alison
Macree, has the credentials,
knowledge and enthusiasm to
make a name with her own
new line of JoeLee boutique-
style fashions.
A graduate of Venice High
School, Alison Macree went
on to Savannah School of Art,
where she obtained her de-
gree in fashion design. For
some time she has been
preparing the cutting-edge
styles of her JoeLee brand,
which mirror the upscale
fashions of Elle, Foxy Lady
and similar stores selling
national designs.
"These will not be your
basic lines, but unique,
youthful boutique fashions
for women of all ages," she
said.
, Although much of the work
is being done from her Casey
Key home, she will debut the
JoeLee lines when the Ma-
crees open their upscale bou-
tique store in November.
David Macree has prepared a,
spectacular storefront incor-
porating stonework with cus-
tomt mahogany windows to
showplace the JoeLee fash-
ions at 121 W Venice Ave.

Summer can be tax-cutting time


BY MARK S. RING
GUEST COLUMNIST


Now that the April filing
deadline has passed, you
probably aren't thinking
about income taxes. But dur-
ing the warm days of sum-
mer, you can make choices
that will cut your taxes for
2007 and beyond.
Vacation homes. If you're
planning to spend several
weeks at the beach house that
you rent out for the rest of the
summer, you might want to
check out the tax rules con-
cerning personal use. By
adjusting the number of days
you use your vacation home,
you may be able to deduct
any rental loss you incur.
Combining business and
vacation travel. Travel ex-
penses are deductible if the
travel is undertaken primarily
for business purposes; thus,


you may wish to combine
attendance at an out-of-town
business conference with a
visit to family or friends. (The
expenses attributable to the
personal part of the trip,
though, remain nonde-
ductible.)
When doing any business
traveling, make a distinction
in your records between
expenses for lodging and
transportation and those for
meals and entertainment.
Only the latter are subject to a
50-percent deduction limita-
tion.
Hire the kids. If you own
your own business, pay your
children to work for you.
You'll get a deduction at your
higher bracket, while the chil-
dren will be taxed on their
wages at their lower rate. They
won't be taxed at all on the
first $5,350 of earned income.
Wages you pay to your


under-18 child may be
exempt from Social Security
and Medicare tax. (This
exemption applies only to
your own children.) The pay
must be reasonable for the
work actually performed.
Fixing up the house? If
you're planning to make
improvements to your home,
get details on the tax credit
available for making energy-
saving changes to your resi-
dence.
Enjoy your summer, but
take time to save taxes.

CORRESPONDENT

Citing the Tampa Bay estu-
ary, where water quality has
improved as a result of reduc-
ing nutrient pollution with
tougher regulation, Tuesday
the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration
expressed optimism "that ag-
gressive management can
reverse a trend of worsening
conditions in the nation's 141
estuaries."-
The NOAA report was a 10-
year update assessing nutri-
ent pollution in estuaries that
included" seven in'Southwest
Florida. They were Tampa
and Sarasota bays; Charlotte
Harbor; Caloosahatchee Bay,
also known as San Carlos Bay,
near Fort Myers; Rookery Bay,
near Naples; and the North
and South 10,000 Islands,
near Everglades City.
NOAA completed the first
assessment in 1999. The
agency hopes that more fre-
quent studies can be done,
and that an integrated ocean-
observing system can be
developed by increased fed-
eral, state, local and industry

partnerships.
A team of scientists led by
Dr. Suzanne Bricker of
NOAA's Center for Coastal
Monitoring and Assessment
reported that their evaluation
revealed "that most of the
problems in estuaries are
related to human activities."
She said that the 'most pollut-

nation's population.

sively address the influx of
excess nutrients from upland
watersheds to protect our
nation's estuaries," Bricker
said.
Pollution is caused by ex-
cess nutrients in the water.
They cause algae blooms to
increase, dissolved oxygen to
decrease and seagrasses to
disappear. They help to create
red tide.
The improvement in Tam-
pa Bay has been advanced by
the rebuilding of seagrass
beds.
Moderate- to high-level


nutrient-related impacts were
reported by the team in estu-
aries from all coasts.
Those in the Gulf of Mexico
have very large watersheds
and smaller populations. But
they are poorly flushed, ac-
cording to NOAA. That cre-
ates a higher number of fac-
tors causing pollution.
Data from 99 of the 141
estuaries were evaluated by
the scientific team in the lat-
est study.
Sixty-four were found to
have moderate to high levels
of nutrient pollution.

PHOTOS COURTESY OF THE SARASOTA OPERA

The Sarasota Youth Opera, under the direction of Maestro Lance Inouye, performed at the Ninth Annual International Choral Festival at Tetuccio Spa, Montecatini Terme, Tuscany, Italy.


BY JULIO GONZALEZ, M,D.
GUEST WRITER


The sun shone on the
international debut of the
Sarasota Youth Opera when it
performed at the Ninth
Annual International Choral
Festival in Tuscany.
It was the first time in the
history of the youth opera
that the students were travel-
ing outside the United States.
"We have been contem-
plating doing this for years,"
said Stuart Holt, the director
of youth opera programs. "We
wanted to provide the kids
with an opportunity to have a
tour experience as well as the
chance to get exposed to the
culture that is instrumental to
the development of their art
form. This year, with the reno-
vation of the Sarasota Opera
House, we thought it a great
time for the youth opera to
travel."
Festival participants and
enthusiasts represented Eu-
ropean countries as well as
places as distant as Hong
Kong, -the United States and
Australia.
The sky was clear and blue
over Tuscany when Maestro
Kristen Conn stepped onto
the marble stage to address
the crowd gathered for the
festival. Facing them, she took
her place before the
pianoforte as the stage xas
promptly filled with enthusi-
astic, elegantly dressed
youngsters, aged 11-18, from
the Venice, Sarasota and
Bradenton area and one ex-
change student from Bel-
gium.
Their reception was guard-
ed for most the choirs were
from Europe and with more
experience. That changed as
they began to sing and the
audience quickly warmed up
to the Americans whose voic-
es reverberated majestically
between the marble columns
and bounced off the rounded
domes. With Conn playing
the pianoforte and Maestro
Lance Inouye directing the
choir, the group sang such
works as the Tuscan folk song
"Don Don Camopana,"
which they sang in Italian,
"Chorus of the Sheperders"


by Umberto
"Gentle Annie,"
Foster and "Ch
Peasants" by
Tchaikovsky. The

responded to Later on the same day, the


choir performed at the Piazzo
Pololo at the mercantile cen-
ter of town, ending that per-
formance with "Va. Pensiero"
by Giuseppe Verdi, sung in
Italian. The hundreds of peo-
ple in the audience joined the


choir in the singing of the
patriotic melody, at one time
representing a call for Italian
unification and at the same
.time rewarding their
American guests with yet
another standing ovation.

"They were magnificent,"
said Karl Hesser, the director
of education at the Sarasota
Opera. "We witnessed the
fruits of the hard work and
'dedication on the part of the
kids, their families and the
staff of the Sarasota Youth
Opera."
The event was the culmi-
nation.of a year's effort by the
youngsters.
Following the perfor-
mances, the choir had the
opportunity to learn about
their Italian brethren while
taking walking tours of Lucca,
the birthplace of Giaccomo
Pucini, and Pisa and Florence,
the stomping grounds of
Michelangelo.
"Overall, I was very
impressed," Holt said at the
conclusion of the journey.
"I witnessed a lot of growth
on the part of the kids, musi-
cally and intellectually. This is
something we will have to
consider doing again in the
future."
The Sarasota Youth Opera
will resume its local concert
tour in the fall.

2B VENICE GONDOLIER SUN


And now

BY TED RANK
STAFF ESCRITOR

, Hang on to your sanity,
ladies and gentlemen. It's
time for News from
Ecineville.
Well, they're here. The
much anticipated budget
cuts are being announced
by counties far and near.
Here in Richarora
County, County Adminis-
trator Timmy "I'm Cool"
Placelet has come up with
$10 million more in cuts
than the board of county
commissioners requested.
"I believe this is an
opportunity. Hell, we should
have done this a long time
ago. We can save millions
with these simple changes
that won't really affect our
employees or our cus-
tomers, the citizens of this
fine county," said Placelet.
So just what are these
"simple changes"?


YOUR TOWN d OVER EASY


..,The News from Ecineville


The "Time 'SChair'
Program" The county is
going to sell half of all office
chairs occupied by a G7 or
lower worker when there are
several G7 or lower workers
at a site. The workers will
share one chair: one hour
standing or kneeling and
one hour sitting in the lone
chair they share.
The "Multiple Team
Projects Joint Pay Initiative"
- "When a project requires
more than one person
working on it, each employ-
ee will receive whatever por-
tion of pay per hour deter-
mined by the number of
persons working on the pro-
ject proportional to project
completion estimates."
(Editor's note: Huh? We
decided we best quote this
one directly. What does it
mean? If two people work-
ing on a project together for
six hours, each worker
receives only three hours'


pay.)
The "Secure Lunch Site,
Safety Program" Ever-
concerned about worker
safety, the county is requir-
ing that employees remain
in their buildings for their
entire eight-hour shift in
addition to their one-hour
lunch. Special Lunch Site
Safety Cafeterias are being
set up. Lunches ranging
from $12.95 (hot dog and a
bag of chips) to $36.95
(Caesar salad with grilled
chicken) will be served in all
the Lunch Site Safety
Cafeterias. Soft drinks, wa-
ter, coffee or tea: $4.
Some other "simple
changes":
Toilet paper is now con-,
sidered a personal item -
bring your own.
Parking passes will be
sold starting Monday.
Monthly pass: $40. Yearly
pass: $520.
Office supplies buy


all your office supplies at
Placelet Stationers and
receive a 15-percent dis-
count.
Standing around the
water cooler, sharing stories,
laughing for a few minutes
- priceless. The water cool-
ers are gone. Bottled water:
$2. See your supervisor.
Oh, and when you work
tonight and go to punch
your timecard, don't forget
to put the quarter in the slot
before you put your card in
the time clock.
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, don't forget to
pack the TP tomorrow here
in Ecineville.

Dolphins galore in the Bay
Monthly photo-identifica-
tion surveys by the Sarasota
Dolphin Research Program at
Mote have documented nine
births so far in 2007 to well-
known resident dolphins of
Sarasota Bay, including one
first-time mother. Two of
these mothers subsequently
lost their new calves in
each case, their seventh calf
observed over the course of
our long-term program.
The Sarasota Dolphin Re-
search Program is in its 37th
year of studies with the dol-
phins that call Sarasota Bay
home. The program is the
world's longest-running study
of wild dolphins and is often
used as a model for re-
searchers around the world
working on dolphin conser-
vation projects.
On another note, dolphin
program staff found one of
the oldest male dolphins in
Sarasota Bay entangled in
monofilament fishing line.
Staff was able to partially
remove the line while the ani-
mal was free-swimming. This
episode and the births of
so many new calves that are
just now learning how to nav-


igate their environment -
offers a chance for Mote to
remind boaters and anglers
on- the best ways to interact
with our dolphin neighbors.
Here are a few tips:
1. Never feed wild dolphins -
it is against federal law and is
harmful to the dolphins.
2. Avoid tossing leftover bait
to dolphins if they are nearby.
Make use of leftover bait by
taking it home to freeze for
later or by giving it to your
fishing neighbor.
3. Check your gear and termi-
nal tackle to make sure they
are in good shape and will not
break too easily, resulting in a
lost fish with a hook that
could be eaten by a dolphin.
4. Avoid fishing in an area
where dolphins are actively
feeding dolphins may mis-
take your bait or catch for food.
5. Stay at least 50 yards away
from wild dolphins while
boating or using personal
watercraft.

Nun examines strokes to help folks


Birthday fellowship


BYANGELATABLAC
MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS

How a patient draws the
thickness of a tree trunk, the
lines in a bridge and the char-
acters in a circus are clues
Sister Mary Kuester uses to
understand their thoughts,
and emotions.
As an art therapist at
Miami's Mercy Hospital,
Kuester helps psychiatric
patients explore hidden feel-
ings through pictures. Twice a
day, five days a week, she
holds sessions where she
directs a group of patients to
draw a certain image like a
tree -- in half an hour and
then explain their drawings to
each other. Analysis with the
group and Kuester helps
patients learn about their
subconscious thoughts.
Those observations also can
help validate doctors' diag-
noses and give additional
insight that can aid patients'
recovery, Kuester said.
'Art therapy, in itself, does
not cure anyone," said
Kuester, a nun with the Sisters
of St. Joseph. "It helps look at
some things that have not
been verbalized to the doc-
tors."
Art therapy was developed


CHARLES TRAINOR JR./MIAMI HERALD/MCT
Sister Mary Kuester holds some of the artwork from her psy-
chiatric patients she treats at Miami's Mercy Hospital, July 13.


afterWorld War II to help chil-
dren cope with war, trauma.
Since then, it has been adopt-


ed by hospitals, schools and
clinics.
Kuester said she has had a


longtime interest in art and
the study of mental illness.
She earned a bachelor's
degree in art in 1976 from
College Misericordia in Dal-
las, Pa. During her one-year
stint at a Deland, Fla., nursing
home, she became inspired
to join the Sisters of St.
Joseph. Over the next 14
years, she taught art and reli-
gion classes to kindergartners
through eighth graders at
Florida schools in St. Au-
gustine, Little Havana, Little
Haiti and Orlando.
At St. Charles Borromeo
School in Orlando, Kuester
said she started "seeing
things in the children's art
and making connections with
their emotional states and
wanted to learn how to inter-
pret the art." She asked her
sister congregation for funds
to get a master's in art thera-
py. In 1997, she received her
degree from Marywood Uni-
versity in Scranton, Pa. Then
a sister who was Mercy's CEO
brought Kuester to Miami to
set up the hospital's art thera-
py program.
Kuester said her reward as
an art therapist comes from
"seeing the patients take hold
of their treatment, seeing the
Aha!' moment."

The Players Theatre

picks two winning plays


FROM THE PLAYERS THEATRE

The Players Theatre has
selected "If the Devil Could
Fall in Love," by Jenny Beres
and "Casting Shadows" by
Bernard Yanelli, the winners
of The Play's The Thing new-
play reading series. Both pro-
ductions will be mounted as
full scale productions in April
and June 2008 respectfully.
"This year's series was a testa-
ment to the incredible talent
that resides here in Sarasota.
We aligned great plays with
wonderful directors and ded-
icated actors. It was a winning
combination," said Jeffery
Kin, Artistic Director of The
Players Theatre. "I am posi-
tive that as this series grows,
we will see even more local
playwrights published and
nationally produced."
More than 30 plays were
submitted this year to The
Players "Plays the Thing Play"
new-play reading series. The
six plays selected and pre-
sented on six consecutive
nights were: "Exiles" by Jack
Gilhooley; "Flying Object"
John Bohane; "Suffer Fools
Gladly" by Mark Aloysius
Kenneally; "Blood Sunday" by
Walton Beachum; "Casting
Shadows" by Bernie Yanelli;
and "If the Devil Could Fall in
Love" by Jenny Beres.
"If the Devil could fall in
Love" by Jenny Beres is a
humorous struggle to keep
Heaven and Hell operating in
universal order. However,
when the Devil falls in love
with a New York City based
novelist, the line separating
good and evil is comically
blurred. God schemes a dis-
astrous plot to win Scarlet
(the Devil) back to teach her
an unforgettable lesson that
hell really is a place on earth.


Beres' writing is greatly
inspired by the light, fresh
comedy of Noel Coward, the
oxymoronic humor of Oscar
Wilde and by the everyday
laughs between her an her
husband, Brian. She worked
as a journalist for two years in
Cleveland, before moving to
Florida, where she is a psy-
chology student in the hopes
of.gaining some insight (Le.,
control) over her character's
lives. "If the Devil could fall in
Love" is her first attempt at
playwriting.
"Casting Shadows" by
Bernie Yanelli, explores the
pernicious influence of the
advertising world, its moor-
ings to Plato's Cave, and
what happens to a man who
thinks he has successfully
outrun his past and inner
nature. Having rejected
both his philosophical stud-
ies and sagely mentor, the
main character, Peter
Collora, goes on to achieve
.both success and fortune.
amongst the walnut pan-
eled halls of Madison
Avenue that is, until his
life becomes engulfed by a
congressional investigation
and a scathing lead story in
the New York Times.
Yanelli is a late-in-life
teacher, teaching history and
economics at Saint Stephen's
Episcopal School. He previ-
ously spent twenty years as
an international business-
man. He and his wife Marlene
have two sons and live on
Siesta Key. Casting Shadows is
also his first attempt at play-
writing.

DAVE BARRY
HUMOR COLUMNIST

EDITOR'S NOTE: This classic
Dave Barry column was originally
published March 5, 2000.

When I was a boy, playing
Little League baseball, I
dreamed as most boys did
back then of someday get-
ting a call from the Major
Leagues.
"Son," I dreamed the Ma-
jor Leagues would tell me,
"you stink. We're kicking you
out of Little League." I would
have been grateful. I was a
terrible player. I was afraid of
the ball and fell down a lot,
sometimes during the singing
of the national anthem. So in
1960, I hung up my Little
League uniform for good (it
immediately fell down), and I
had no contact with orga-
nized baseball for the next 40
years.
Then, recently, I was asked
to participate in the Joe Di-
Maggio Legends Game, which
raises money for the Joe
DiMaggio Children's Hospital
in Hollywood, Fla. I said yes,
because a) it's a good cause,
and b) because they were ask-
ing ME to play, I figured it
would be a relaxed, low-key
event, like those company-,
picnic softball games where
beer is available in the outfield
and as many as six people play
shortstop simultaneously.
Imagine my horror when I
found myself at a real di-
um, with thousands of pec-
tators in the grandstands.
Imagine my further horror
when I found myself in albek-
er room containing several


dozen former major league
baseball players. Some were
older guys, such as Minnie
Minoso of the White Sox, who
I believe once caught a fly ball
hit by Magellan. But there
were also some guys who had
played big-league ball recent-
ly and still looked capable of
hitting a baseball all the way
through a human body.
I expressed concern about
this to one of my teammates,
the great Orioles third base-
man Brooks Robinson, who
gave me some reassuring
advice.
"Don't play in the infield,"
he said. "You'll get killed."
I was on the American
League team, managed by
former Yankee John Blan-
chard. He gave me a nice little
pregame pep talk, which I will
reproduce here verbatim:
BLANCHARD: You should
see how these guys hit the
ball.
ME: Hard?
BLANCHARD: Oh, Lord
God. Are you wearing a cup?
ME: I don't OWN a cup.
BLANCHARD: Oh, Lord
God.
I did pretty well for the first
few innings. This is because I
was not in the game. Then
Blanchard sent me out to left
field to replace Mickey Rivers,
which is like replacing Dom
Perignon with weasel spit.
I trotted out of the dugout
wearing the stiff new glove I'd
bought that afternoon. When
I brought it home, I removed
the price tag and spent a few
minutes fielding grounders
thrown to me by my wife, who
was nine months pregnant
and thus could not put a ton
of mustard on the ball, which
dribbled my way at the veloc-
ity of luggage on an airport
conveyor belt. That was my
preparation for this moment,
for standing alone in deep left
field, with vivid Little League
memories swarming in my
brain- memories of praying
for the ball not to come to me,
and memories q calling down
When it did. ,f
So I'm standing out there,
and for almost two innings,
nothing comes my way. Then
it happens: George Foster,


five-time All-Star slugger for
the Cincinnati Reds, rips a
ground ball between second
and short. I get a good break
on the ball, going to my left,
running hard. Foster is
rounding first, trying for a
double, and the crowd is roar-
ing, and suddenly I realize,
with a sense of elation, that
I'M ACTUALLY GOING TO
GET TO THE BALL. Yes! I can
see it clearly, and I have the
angle, and I'm closing fast,
and I'm going to make it! I'm
almost there! And now I'm
there! And now OH, NO, I
RAN PAST THE BALL. THE
BALL IS BACK OVER THERE.
OH, NOOOOOOO ....
And, of course, I fall down.
I've seen a video replay. I look
like a man whose lower and
upper body halves are being
operated by two unrelated
nervous systems. I make a
pathetic, longing gesture to-
ward the ball as it zips past to
the outfield wall, where cen-
terfielder Dave Henderson
retrieves it. After he throws it
in, he puts his arm on my
shoulders and says, "You're
supposed to catch the ball in
your glove."
I also got to display my bat-
ting prowess. The pitcher I
faced was Al "The Mad Hun-
garian" Hrabosky, who still
looks as though he has just
been kicked out of the Ins-
titute for the Criminally In-
sane for being a little TOO
insane, and who can still
throw pretty hard (by which I
mean "faster than light"). He
struck me out on three pitch-
es. I was still swinging at the
last one when Hrabosky was
in the showers.
So it was a pretty humiliat-
ing experience. But mark my
words: I'll be back next year,
and that's going to be a differ-
ent story. Because next time,
I'll be ready to "play with the
,big boys." That's right: I'm
going to be wearing a cup.
TWO cups, in fact, because
I'm assuming you need one
fox each knee. ,

leave of absence from writing
his weekly hinuor column.
