Designation debate dominates airport talks


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


It was one step forward,
two steps back this weekend
as airport consultants tried
to advance the discussion
about developing about 400
acres of vacant property on
Venice Municipal Airport.
An estimated 150 people
showed up Friday at the
Venice Community Center
for an update on the airport
master plan.
Another 75 spent Sat-
urday morning and after-
noon meeting with airport
consultants, discussing the
charrette process and iden-
tifying areas for potential
development and its im-
pacts.
For better or worse, the
discussion kept coming
back to a somewhat obscure
administrative airport refer-
ence code.
; MEA-Hanson, the city's
airport consultant, spent
Friday evening and much of
Saturday afternoon trying to
dispel what it called misin-
formation about the runway
designation.
For Lisa Waters, president
of MEA-Hanson, it was an
opportunity to clarify B-II
and C-II airport reference
codes.
For others, it was their
shot at telling city leaders
they want a small airport, or
none at all.


Runway designations
The discussion began
months ago when city offi-
cials weren't exactly sure
when Venice airport became
designated C-II, referring to
the specific speed of an air-
craft and its wingspan.
"C" designates the type of
aircraft that travel the air-
port's runways. In Venice's
case most travel between
140-160 knots. The "II" des-
ignates wingspans less than
75 feet in length.
A B-II airport reference
code designates an airport
with smaller aircraft.
Some wanted to know
when the airport's designa-
tion was changed from a B-
II to a C-II, while others
wanted to know how it
could become a B-II again.
Both questions were bas-
ed on a erroneous informa-
tion, consultants said.
The airport was never
designated B-11, said Waters.
The Federal Aviation Ad-
ministration reference cod-
es weren't even developed
until 1989, said Airport
Manager Fred Watts.
The first time the airport
received its reference code
was in 2000.
And itwasn't designated C-
II because someone wanted
more or bigger planes on the
airport.
Waters said the designa-

ers is another Venice business
that's moving out of dowh-
town. But in this case, high
rent has nothing to do with
the decision to leave.
"We no longer want to be a
part of Venice NlainStreet,"
owner Karen Angle said.
Angle said that being a
Venice merchant was a family
affair 17 years ago, when the
business started. She and her
husband, Jerry, have noticed
a big difference in the type of
establishments that were
relocating downtown after
the change from the Venice
Merchant's Association to
Venice MainStreet, a national
program for retailers.
"Sometimes we didn't see
eye-to-eye with many of the
programs of MainStreet," said
Angle.
Business such as Realtors,
insurance agencies and
banks started to move in,
changing the look of down-
town, said Angle.
She said that a longtime
renter was told that VMS was
glad to get rid of some of the
old-businesss that were part
of downtown. She felt they
were looking for "classier"
types of merchants.
"They -just want people
with a lot of money to come
in," Angle said. "Unfortun-
ately, they close up if they are
not successful after only a
short time."
After debating whether to

Higher density for Thomas Ranch denied


As discussions wore on into Thursday night
between the Sarasota County Planning
Commission and petitioners seeking higher den-
sity for the Thomas Ranch property, one thing
was clear the gulf between the two parties was
not so wide as one might have thought.


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


An attempt to initiate an
amendment on behalf of the
Thomas Ranch to redesignate
2,850 acres to a higher devel-
opment density failed Thurs-
day night before the Sarasota
County Planning Commis-


sion, 3-3.
In order for proposals to
pass, they must garner a
majority of yea votes from
commissioners. A tie vote,
then, as was the case Thurs-
day night, means the propos-
al failed.
The goal of attorney Jeffrey
Boone and his associates on


behalf of the applicant was a
difficult-one to persuade
the commissioners to in-
crease the development den-
sity on the Thomas Ranch
property from its current
maximum of 1,072 dwellings
to 7,125,
It was an uphill battle they
almost won.
"What we offer here is a
way to say, 'Let's take this last
piece of undeveloped land
anywhere near the coast in
Sarasota County that isn't in
public ownership and plan
for it as one unified whole,'"
Boone said. "Let's do it right"

lTHLE KNOWN FAMOUS FIOMDIANS
BY JOE "FASTHORSE" HARRILL




















GEORGE FERGUSON was one of the first permanent
white pioneers to settle in the Miami area in the early
1800s. Ferguson made $25,000 a year (a fortune at that
time) selling starch he manufactured at his mill on the
Miami River. Many of the early settlers were farmers who
came to take advantage of the free land the U.S. govern-
merit offered homesteaders. But, for whatever reason
they came, they took a lively interest in the wrecking
industry, the business of salvaging cargo from shipwrecks
on the Florida reefs.

Uncertain, but wet


This summer's rainy season
is like a sports car sputtering
from water in its gas tank.
What should be predic-
table, isn't. We get rain. Then
sun. Storms. Then gentle sea
breezes.
The other day, after one of
the rain days, Tropical Bob
decided to check his home's
rain gauge. To T.B., this is the
"official" rainfall total.
Plants need an inch a week
and this gauge determines
how much T.B. will use our
shrinking communal water
resources.
T.B. held up the gauge: 1.25
inches of rainwater. Good.
And .25 inches of mold.

School district to consolidate services


PY GERALD A.ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


Plans for a building at the
Osprey transportation com-
plex of the Sarasota County
School Building will permit
the consolidation of five
departments now scattered
throughout the county.
Support services, con-
struction, facilities, ware-
housing, a security office,


long-range planning and
operations will be brought
together under one roof in a
stand-alone building at Old
Venice Road and Bay Street,
behind the parking area for
school buses.
Older buildings on Fruit-
ville Road in Sarasota and on
the planned site of the new
Booker High School on Myr-
tle Street currently house the
construction and facilities


departments and some ware-
housing. Long-range plan-
ning and the office of the dis-
trict's chief of operations are
at the Landings on U.S. 41 in
Sarasota.
If the 1-cent sales tax is
renewed in November, the
school board will budget
$6,615,000 for the building.
The transportation complex
is on a 79.8-acre parcel that
includes other buildings and


a parking area leased to the
sheriff's office, which abuts
the district's land Old Venice
Road.
Ken Marsh, director of
long-range planning for the
district, said some operations
activities are now in a small
modular building on the site.
"It is perhaps the least-safe
building in the event of a hur-
ricane," he said. "A new build-
ing will resolve that."

Back-to-school tax holiday


Who is going to teach kids to read?


BY BOB FLISS
STAFF WRITER: .,

It'sChristmas in Augutt -
or a least 7 percent of a big
holiday giveaway.
Florida's eighth back-to-
school tax holiday runs
tiqugh Aug. 13. ,
,The 2007 Legislature, with-
out a lot of debate, basically
renewed the 2006 program.
Although the details can get
complicated, the holiday
essentially waives both state
and local sales, taxes on
apparel items valued up to
$50, books valued up to $50
and school supplies selling for
$10 or less.
The Florida Department of
Revenue projects this year's
holiday will save consumers
about $46.6 million. County
estimates were not available.
Florida was among the first
states to adopt a sales-tax hol-.
iday, in 1998. The concept has
been so popular that Florida
has adopted two other such
holidays one for hurricane
preparation, the other for
energy-saving devices.
Although all the holidays
have been popular with con-
sumers, they're not a given
each year. Each has to be
reauthorized by the Legis-
lature.
Initially, the back-to-
school holiday ran from 1998
through 2001. But economic
jitters after the Sept. 11 terror-
ist attacks caused the
Legislature to skip 2002 and
2003. The holiday was
restored in 2004 and has been
reauthorized each year since.
Indeed, the Florida Retail
Federation, a Tallahassee-
based industry lobbying
group, described the back-to-
school holiday'as "an annual
tradition."
"Families looking for a way
to make their dollars go fur-
ther should make the most of
this opportunity," said FRF
president Rick McAllister in a
statement. "Many retailers
also mark down their mer-
chandise, making it a boon
for Florida consumers."
A boon
It's also a boon for Florida
retailers. Indeed, Florida leg-
islators have complained of
being besieged by requests
from retail lobbyists to
expand the holiday to both a
wider range of products and
higher-value products.
The FRF reported eight of
14 states that have sales tax
holidays provide at least some
kind of a break on computers
and related supplies -
Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana,

Denise Donaldson and her children look though clothing at
Dillard's Thursday in anticipation of the state's tax holiday,


Missouri, North Carolina,
South Carolina, New Mexico
and Tennessee.
Closer to home, South
Venice's state representative
said he likes the tax holiday
just as it is even in a tight
budget year.
The Legislature is on
notice for a mid-September
special session to cut the
state's $71.5 billion budget by
another $1 billion to $2 bil-


lion.
"I think it should be for
basic clothing and school
needs," said Rep. Mike Grant,
R-Port Charlotte. As for any
future expansion, "consider-
ing that we already fund a
great deal of the education
budget out of sales tax rev-
enue, we'd be cutting off our
nose to spite our face," he
said.

One of the main topics of
the Sarasota Classified/
Teachers Association negotia-
tions with the Sarasota
County School Board is the
shortage of reading teachers
in the district.
"Our critical shortage to-
day is reading," Scott Lempe,
district chief operating officer,
said during negotiations.
According to data from the
board, for the 2006-07 school
year, 53 of 76 reading teachers
budgeted were teaching out-
of-field. (Data from the 2007-
08 school year are not avail-
able yet.)
Currently, there are 159
reading endorsed or certified
teachers within the district.
Suzanne Naiman, a read-
ing program specialist for the
district, said having 53 read-
ing teachers teaching out-of-
field does not mean unquali-
fied teachers are teaching.
Many of the teachers
teaching out-of-field reading
are in the process of becom-
ing endorsed, she said. They
learn their skills and teach
them rightaway.
"It's better to have a
teacher in the process than
have someone who doesn't
have any (training) at all,"
Naiman said.
Naiman said the middle
and high school levels have
more of a problem obtaining
qualified reading teachers.







Fue


However, the problem is
bigger than just Sarasota
County schools. Lempe said
other states were having the
same problem.
Naiman agreed.
"We're all in the same boat
through the entire country in
regards to reading teachers,"
she said.
Reading requirements
Those who want to be
reading teachers can become
endorsed by the district, or

"Our critical shortage
today is reading ."
Scott Lempe,
district chief operat-
ing officer

they can take university
courses and become reading
certified.
The district pays for most
of the endorsement classes,
with a negligible amount co-
ming from the state, accor-
ding to Naiman. However,
certification courses are paid
for by the teacher as a part of
a degree program.
According to Barry Dubin,,
SC/TA executive director,
becoming endorsed is diffi-
cult for teachers.
Naiman said teachers
must complete 300 "straight"
hours of professional devel-
opment to become reading
endorsed. (One semester


hour is equivalent to 20
straight hours.)
During union negotiations,
SC/TA president Pat Gardner
said many of the teachers try-
ing to become endorsed are
often teaching at the same time
and find it difficult to do both in
a timely manner.
At the July 25 negotiations,
Dubin presented seven sugges-
tions for obtaining more read-
ing teachers. One of the sugges-
tions included a one-time
$5,000 bonus to any teacher
who became endorsed and
taught within the district for a
three-year period.
Union negotiations were
canceled for Aug. 1 because
the district wanted present
some of the monetary con-
cerns involving reading teac-
her incentives to school board
members in a session Aug. 7.

Experts to review dredging report

sarasota County is pursuing long-term plans for both Big Pass and New Pass. Spot
dredging could improve navigation and provide beach restoration sand.


BYJACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS '"

A stubborn U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers computer
has finally spit out critical
sand movement data that will
help Sarasota County officials
decide whether maintenance
dredging in both Big Pass and
New Pass is a threat to barrier
island beaches and homes.
Late last week the technical
information was forwarded to
Cliff Truitt, Ph.D., the county's
Coastal inlet consultant, who
will include it in a final report
that has taken almost three
years to assemble. He will
and it over to the county
within two weeks.
The Army Corps has
sophisticated computer mod-
els that project water flow and
Sand movement changes
when dynamic events occur.
Until it was upgraded, one
inodel repeatedly crashed
when Big Pass and New Pass
changes were simultaneously
entered.'
"I haven't carefully read the
raft modeling in detail,"
ruitt said. "This sediment
transport information pre-
icts what will happen to our
hrea beaches if a navigation
;hanneLis moved. It is impor-
tant for the people who are
concerned about where
beach sand will go."
Those people include the
residents of south Lido Key
hrnd north Siesta Key who
have invested heavily in
beachfront homes and don't
want shorelines to erode.
They are particularly edgy
about the prospect of Big Pass
dredging projects.
Options
One of the options county
officials will consider would
seal the Big Pass navigational
channel that hugs the north
shore of Siesta Key and relo-
cate it near Sand Dollar Island
,:o the north, where recre-
ational boaters entered and
exited Sarasota Bay 50 years

Big Pass, which separates
the south end of Lido Key
tom the north end of Siesta
Key, has never been dredged.
AVhen projects have been pro-
posed to either improve navi-
gation or restore area beach-
es, Siesta Key residents have
resisted them and threatened
to sue the county.
I New Pass, which separates
the south end of Longboat
Key from the north end of
Lido Key, is a federal channel
that receives periodic mainte-
nance .dredging from the
Army Corps of Engineers.
Sand removed from the chan-
ael is equally shared by the
barrier islands.
Truitt's work, which invol-
ved a collaboration with three
other organizations, will not
ae the last word. A peer review
process has been ordered by
-he county commission that
ould raise questions and
ielay a final presentation
mtil early next year.
"The county commission
-equested this peer review to
verify the report's conclu-
sions," said Spencer Ander-
son, a county environmental
services project manager. "We
issued a request for qualifica-
tions from firms or individu-
als two weeks ago, with
responses due no later than
ug. 16."
. A professional services
review committee of county
employees will evaluate the
Responses and identify those
that best meet the county's
heeds. Anderson said he may
Provide the names of several
applicants for commissioners
o choose from.
"There will be no field ser-
Vices involved in this work," he
paid. "This will be a desktop
review by each of the peer
viewers that looks at the
approach taken by our consul-
rant, and his conclusions. It
should provide the commis-
tion with a sense of security."


elay
If the peer. review gets


under way in late September
or early October, and takes
120 days to complete, it could
be early next year before the
final inlet management plan
for Big Pass and New Pass is
presented as a package to the
county commission.
A preliminary report on the
$500,000 scientific study was
presented in late May, at
which time commissioners
cautioned they wanted the
final document examined by
outside experts. The inlet plan
was conducted to answer crit-
ics who have historically
opposed dredging projects.
It was supposed to be fin-
ished in February, but efforts
to gather additional support
data forced a delay.
Persuasion
Because there has been
historic resistance to Big Pass
dredging especially from
Siesta Key residents several
citizen organizations request-
ed a peer review process that
would allow outside experts
to comment on the study's
findings and recommenda-
tions.
In fact, three coastal
experts Robert Dolan,
Ph.D., David Aubrey, Ph.D.,
and Robert Dean, Ph.D. -
were offered a chance to sub-
mit their comments on both
the study's initial phase and
its scope of activities when
the process first got under


way. They chose not to.
New Pass has been a feder-
ally designated coastal inlet
since the 1920s, when Payne
Terminal was constructed on
the Sarasota Bayfront, but the
Army Corps has repeatedly
warned it will no longer be eli-
gible for dredging because of
budget cutbacks.
In 2004, University of
South Florida Professors
Richard Davis and Ping Wang
conducted a $25,000 recon-
naissance study of Big Pass for
the county. Their report sug-
gested careful shoal dredging
could reverse erosion on
Siesta Key's north end.
Their report to the com-
mission was in response to
Siesta Key residents who have
argued the Big Pass shoal
should never be touched
because it protects their
beaches. The residents have
historically opposed all previ-
ous efforts to dredge portions
of Big Pass.
The Davis-Wang report
persuaded the county com-
mission to pursue a long-
term management plan for
both coastal inlets that could
shift some maintenance res-
ponsibilities away from the
Army Corps, and eventually
lead to a cost-sharing part-
nership with the state.

Region to win big in water bill -


VENICE GONDOLIER SUN 5A


A threatened veto by President George Bush is casting
a shadow over tens of millions for projects.


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER

Several of Southwest
Florida's members of Cong-
ress proudly announced
Thursday they may soon be
bringing tens of millions of
dollars for water supply and
environmental projects home
to their districts.
But their elation subse-.
quently turned to disappoint-
ment after an announcement
that President George Bush
plans to veto the so-called
Water Resources Develop-
ment Act.
Bush's budget and Army
civil works directors, in a let-
ter they sent to the leaders
whose committees drafted
the bill, said Bush "will veto
the bill."
The administration offi-
cials pointed out that the
House proposed a $15 billion
bill and the Senate proposed
a $14 billion bill. But after
convening a joint conference
committee to iron out the dif-
ferences, the bill ballooned to
$20 billion.
The 500-page bill funds
some 5,000 water projects in
places across the country
ranging from Spunky Bot-
toms, Ill., to Peanut Island,
Fla. At least some of the pro:-
jects were submitted as "ear-
marks" during the final com-
mittee process.
"This is not how most
Americans would expect their
representatives in Wash-
ington to reach (an) agree-
ment, especially when it is
their tax dollars that are being
spent," wrote federal Budget


Director Rob Portman and
Army Corps of Engineers
Assistant Secretary John Paul
WoodleyJr.
Congress may have the
votes to mount a veto over-
ride, however. The House
passed the conference bill
341-60 and the Senate passed
its earlier version 91-4.
'Out of touch'
U.S. Rep. Tim Mahoney, a
Democrat from Venus, Fla.,
said he was "disappointed" to
hear of the president's veto
warning.
"The president continues
to demonstrate that he is out
of touch with the wishes of
the people of Florida and
America by not-funding the
Comprehensive Everglades
Restoration Projects," Mah-
oney said. "I will fight the
White House on this issue
and will make sure the voices
of my constituents are heard."
He and other area lawmak-
ers pointed out that the feder-
al government years ago
committed to funding 50 per-
cent of the $8 billion project,
which is working to excavate
gigantic reservoirs for both
public supply and the envi-
ronment.
Florida has put in $2 billion
in funding while the Bush
administration has contribu-
ted nothing, Mahoney said.
The House and Senate
passed a WRDA bill last year,
but that bill failed to emerge
from the conference commit-
tee.
Rep. Vern Buchanan, a
Sarasota Republican, helped
draft the bill as a member of


the House Transportation
and Infrastructure Comm-
ittee. He touted the fact it
funds $10 million to protect
Sarasota Bay from septic sys-
tem pollution and $9 million
for Lido Beach renourish-
ment.
The bill also
funds regional
.water supply
System upgr-
ades in his dis-
trict. In addi-
tion, it auth-
orizes the
Army Corps to
Buchanan dredge Port
Manatee and
help the Southwest Florida
Water Management District
in a project to restore water
quality, hydrology and habitat
in Charlotte Harbor.
"Charlotte Harbor is the
second-largest open-water
estuary in Florida and one of
the most productive estuary
systems in Southwest Florida,
but its health has declined,"
Buchanan said.
"The authorization in this
bill will help protect and rest-
ore the vital natural resource."
Funded
Rep. Connie Mack, a Fort
Myers Republican and a fel-
low transportation commit-


tee member, touted a $20 mil-
lion allotment for pipeline
interconnects in Charlotte,
Lee and Collier counties. The
projects will "enhance water
supply interconnectivity in-
frastructure," Mack said.
The bill also provides fed-
eral support for:
Aquifer storage recovery
wells on the Caloosahatchee
River.
Studying ways to restore
and tap Vanderbilt Beach
Lagoon.
Stabilizing a 600-foot
beach along San Carlos Bay
on Sanibel Island.
Installing a culvert under
Sanibel Captiva Road to
improve water quality in
Clam Bayou and Dinkins
Bayou.
One of the single largest
appropriations in the bill is
$1.7 billion for Everglades
restoration. Those projects
include $1.4 billion for Indian
River Lagoon and $375 mil-
lion for Picayune Strand in
Collier County.
In addition, $1.5 million
was put in the bill to deter-
mine flooding risks at Herbert
Hoover Dike, which im-
pounds Lake Okeechobee.
Bush's budget director, in
his letter to House leaders,
pointed out the bill contains

numerous projects that are
"inappropriate for the mis-
sion of the Corps of Engin-
eers." Those projects include
wastewater, drinking water
and waterfront development,
he said.
Stalled
However, Southwest Flor-
ida's House members main-
tain their projects are justi-
fied.
'As a Blue Dog Democrat,
there is no one in Congress
more concerned about fiscal
responsibility than myself,"
Mahoney said. "However, as we
have seen with the collapse of
the bridge in Minneapolis, the
Bush Administration has
neglected to make critical
investments in infrastructure.
"The WRDA Conference
Report appropriately reflects
the need to address these crit-


ical issues like the dike
around Lake Okeechobee
and protecting our local
economies by cleaning up
our rivers and estuaries," he
added.
"For far too long, Congress
has stalled on moving this
important legislation, creat-
ing a backlog of infrastructure
and water projects across the
country," Mack said. "That's
why the president would be
wrong to veto this bill, which
will help restore the Ever-
glades, protect our beaches
and waterways from floods
and storms, and improve
water quality in Southwest
Florida and beyond."

MOVE from Page 1 A
No control
Laranne Ahem, owner of
The Paper Pad, recently mov-
ed off of West Venice Avenue
to U.S. 41 Business. She does-
n't agree with the Angles.
"You can't blame Venice
Mainstreet for the type of
businesses moving in down-
town," she said. "They aren't
the owners."
Ahem said there is a mis-


understanding about Venice
MainStreet and Venice Ave-
nue. Venice MainStreet is a
national program for busi-
nesses, she said, while Venice
Avenue is where the stores are
located.
"Venice MainStreet has no
control over the owners of the
buildings, the rents they charge
or the type of businesses that
move in," she said.
Roseann Brown, owner of
Venice Stationers, has been a


merchant on Venice Avenue
for 10 years.
"The only issue I can see
with businesses such as a
bank, insurance agencies or
Realtors moving onto the
island is employee parking,"
she said.
Brown said that when a
business has a lot of employ-
ees, they take up parking
spaces that are meant for cus-
tomers.
Other than tight parking,


Brown said the more attrac-
tions they can get onto Venice
Avenue the better.
"It will make the island
area more of a destination."
Venice MainStreet
Jeff O'Berry, promotions
director for Venice Main-
Street, thinks the key to
attracting business down-
town is staying open later.
"Why aren't the stores op-
en on Sunday, or later during


the week?" he said.
His business has grown
since moving.from West Mi-
ami Avenue to West Venice
Avenue, and he thinks it's
because his store is open
Sunday. In the fall he'll keep
it open longer, too.
"In October my hours will
be 10-8," he said.
Kilwin's Chocolates and Ice
Cream and Dick Shoes have
also expanded their hours.
"We all want the mer-


chants to be successful,"
O'Berry said.
He takes exception to a
comment in the Gondolier
Sun's Let'em Have It section
asking if any of downtown
merchants even live in Ven-
ice.
"Just because I live in Sara-
sota," he said, "doesn't mean
that I am not Venice's biggest
cheerleader."

County staff recommend-
ed denial of the increase in
density, in part because they
believed it was premature to
add new development at
urban intensities outside the
Urban Service Area Bound-
ary, particularly in an area
that already has a significant
development potential re-
maining.
In addition, staff noted
there was insufficient funding
appropriation for improve-
ments to River Road, which
would suffer far higher traffic
density than it presently can
handle.
Commissioner Joseph
Gruters moved to approve the


density increase.
"I think what we have to
look at is this is a long-term
plan," Gruters said. "I think
this is smart, sustainable de-
velopment."
Step back
Gruters was seconded by
Commissioner Roland Pic-
cone, whose vote was influ-
enced by the fact that the
Englewood Water District was
committed to providing wat-
er to the project.
"That was important to
me," Piccone said. "It's also a
project planned for a sustain-
able community."
"I don't see why we're rush-


ing into this decision so
soon," said Commissioner
Marianne Reilly, who ex-
pressed concern over neigh-
boring development to the
property and the impact that
will have in an area already
developing at a fast rate.
"Let's take a step back and
come back with a real under-
standing of the timing here,
because that's going to
change the course of the
roads."
Commissioner Ted Allen
voted for approval.
"I know the applicant and
feel they will bargain in good
faith," Allen said. "But I'll be
the toughest 'no' in future


zoning issues."
"I think it's premature,"
said Commissioner Laurel
Schiller. "We've heard from
the applicant that this has
been studied for two years,
but county staff doesn't em-
brace it. We need a plan that
meets with staff approval."
Commissioner John Fellin
cast the deciding vote.
"There's so much about
this proposal that I so dearly
love," Fellin said. "There's also
a lot about it that scares the
dickens out of me."
Fellin voted no.

It's essentially a nondebat-

Downgradable?
Could it be downgraded to
a B-II? Yes and no, said con-
sultants.
It's possible that city lead-
ers could tell the FAA thanks
for paying for 95 percent of
the recent runway pavement
project, but we want a shorter
runway now.


But there are implications,
said MEA-Hanson represen-
tatives.
Would the FAA require the
city then to dig up. the newly
laid pavement, cutting it back
from its current 5,000 feet
length to the B-II designa-
tion's 4,200 maximum length?
Would it blacklist the city
from receiving future federal
funds?
Would it be less inclined to
grant modifications to the
standards it sets for the feder-
al airport property it gave to
the city, with caveats.
No one had the answers,

but the questions were scary
enough.
More bad
Other questions were easi-
er to answer.
Could the city keep bigger
jets from using the airport?
No, said Waters, that would
be discriminating against cer-
tain aircraft and the federal
government doesn't allow


BEACH from Page 1A

will see will be moonlight re-
flected on the water, guiding
them into the sea, because it
is a myth that hatchlings only
emerge on nights when the
moon is full. During August
and early September, hatch-
lings may emerge almost
nightly along the Venice
beaches.
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection,
Division of Marine Resources,
suggests that hatchlingg sea
turtles found wandering away
from the gulf should be taken
to a darkened portion of the
beach and allowed to walk
into the surf on their own."
Disorientations or injured
turtles should be reported to
the Mote sea turtle line at 388-
4331; to the Florida DEP's
West Coast office at (813) 896-
8626; or the Florida Marine
Patrol at (800) DIAL-FMP dur-
ing regular business hours.
Should you see a nest filled
.with empty shells, leave it
alone. Each morning, autho-
rized Mote volunteers walk
the beaches, looking for such
nests, which they inventory
and check for hatchlings that
may not have escaped the
nest. Sea turtle season contin-
ues until Ott. 31.

DEFINITIONS
Section 106-31, Venice city
code:
"Artificial light" refers to any
light source emanating from a
man-made device, including
but not limited to incandes-
cent mercury vapor, metal
halide or sodium lamps, flash-
lights, spotlights, streetlights,
vehicular lights and construc-
tion or security lights.
"Beach" means that area,
public or private, lying i
between the low-water line of
the Gulf of Mexico and the
inshore grass line, boulders or
seawall.


Because there were record
numbers .of disorientations
caused by light last year, con-
cerned citizens, Mote biologists
and city officials are making a
concerted effort to darken the
beach area at night
On July 24, Patek met with
Tucker, director of Mote's Sea
Turtle Conservation & Re-
search Program, and Jim
Grimes, who oversees the vol-
unteers who patrol sections
one to six of Venice area
beaches from the South Jetty
to just south of Brohard Park.
The July 24 letters were a
result of that meeting and of
seeing photographs taken by
Grimes of beach area lighting
infractions. To assist the re-
cipients in finding solutions
to their lighting problems,
Patek included contact infor-
mation for Tucker.
As bfAug. 2, 24 of 156 nests
had hatched, Tucker said.
"We are going to spend this
week and next trying to assist
the city and residents to make
the beaches a little bit darker,"
he said.
The lighting mantra ac-
cording to Tucker is: "Keep it
low, keep it long and keep it
shielded."
Low refers to the intensity of
the light. Long refers to the
wavelength. Red and amber
lights with longer wavelengths
are more turtle friendly than
white or blue, which have
shorter wavelengths, he said.


All lights that may shine on
the beach should be shielded
to direct the light downward
so the light source is not di-
rectly visible from the beach.
"We do not want to com-
promise people's safety,"
Tucker said. "Light bulb by
light bulb is how we are solv-
ing this problem to get Venice"
where it wants to be."

that.
Could the city charge air-
port users more to cover all
the costs associated with
upgrading the airport to meet
FAA safety standards, so the
public doesn't have to pay for
it?
T-hangar rates are going
up and so are rates for the city
mobile home park, run by the
airport. But you can't over-
charge, warned Watts. That's
also against federal law.


And there are other com-
plications.
Shorter runways could
shift more jet operations to
runways that lead aircraft
over residential areas, poten-
tially increasing noise
impacts to the northwest
Golden Beach area and
southeast over South Venice.
FAA representatives told
MEA-Hanson a change in
designation would likely
require additional analysis


and a lengthy environmental
study.
It would likely require the
city to assume a greater por-
tion of the costs of redesign-
ing the runways to meet B-II
standards.
Who's leading whom?
All that didn't matter to
some residents who clearly
believe the master plan and
charrettes are merely steps
toward more traffic and city


congestion.
A flyer distributed at the
meetings, written by Mike
Rafferty, urged city leaders to
direct future changes at the
airport, and not allow the FAA
to dictate future city growth.
"The FAA has made their
position clear," Rafferty
wrote. "Once (the airport lay-
out plan is) submitted for
their review, they will support
the plan as long as it complies
with their standards."


"I think a better approach
is to provide a list of impacts
(for B-II and C-II designa-
tions) and let the citizens of
Venice decide the advantages
and disadvantages, and then
make the choice.
"Venice chooses either C-II
or B-II, and FAA then sets the
criteria ... not the other way
around."

SARASOTA COUNTY BRIEFS


The following is a summa-
ry of Sarasota County con-
struction, repair and mainte-
nance projects expected to
have an impact on local traffic
through Sunday, Aug. 12.
Blackburn Point Bridge,
Casey Key: Maintenance
work on the Blackburn Point
Bridge begins Tuesday, Aug. 7.
The work will require occa-
sional, temporary daytime
closures of the swing bridge to
vehicular and pedestrian traf-
fic. Closures are expected to
last approximately 15 min-
utes. Signs, barricades and
flagmen will be present as
needed. Boat traffic on the
IntracoastalWaterway will not
be affected by the closures,
but boaters are advised to use
caution when near the bridge.
Work includes routine main-
tenance on two bridge sup-
ports and the upgrading of
the riprap under the bridge.
The maintenance project is
expected to be complete in
September.
Venice Avenue, Venice:
Street tree maintenance on
Venice Avenue between
Auburn Road and U.S. 41
Bypass will require interior
lane closures Aug. 7-9, weath-
er permitting.
Dearborn, Street, Engle-
wood: Gottfried Creek is
closed to boat traffic under
the Dearborn Street bridge
due to reduced clearance cre-
ated by the installation of a
bridge deck as part of the
Dearborn Street improve-
ment project. The boat traffic
impacts are expected to con-
tinue for two more weeks.
There will be intermittent
lane closures along the entire
project to accommodate the
installation of the curbs and
gutters, sidewalks, drainage
pips and the grading of the
road. There are lane shifts
beginning at the intersection
of Dearborn and Pine streets;
at the Gottfried Creek Bridge,
where a concrete barrier has
been installed; and again at
Beverly Circle. The speed limit
in this area has been reduced
from 45 to 35 mph. Con-
struction began in February
and, is expected to be com-
plete by July 2008.
Colonia Lane, Nokomis:
Work crews will be installing
water main pipes in the
Nokomis area as part of the
Nokomis Water Line project.
Streets affected this week
include Buena Vista Drive
from Canal Way to Ceil Drive;

This is a continuation of work
begun last week that could
not be completed due to.rain
on several nights.
The starting point for the
lane closure will change each
night as the work crew makes
the transition between the
northbound and southbound
lanes between Laurel Road
and S.R. 681. Despite weath-
er-related postponements,
the contractor was able to
pave several lane miles during
the past week. Depending on
the weather, the milling and


resurfacing on this stretch of

County switches to
biodiesel
Sarasota County's diesel-
powered vehicles and equip-
ment will soon get their gas
the old-fashioned way -
from beans.
Beginning this month, the
county will switch to biod-
iesel, a blend of petroleum
diesel and 5 percent biofuel
made from soybeans. Autom-
otive Resources Fleet Man-
ager Greg Morris says the
move will reduce fossil fuel
dependency by an estimated
50,000 gallons each year.
According to Morris, Sara-
sota County uses nearly 1 mil-
lion gallons of diesel fuel
annually.
In addition to the gasoline
that fuels its other fleet vehi-
cles and equipment. More
than 580 diesel-powered
assets are fueled at or from
the three fuel sites managed
by the county's automotive
resources team.
Morris expects a minimal
change in the county's cost to
move to biofuel.
"Fuel prices vary daily, but
it could cost up to two cents
more per gallon," he said.-
"The big benefit is the reduc-
tion in fossil fuel consump-
tion and harmful emissions."

OUR VIEW




Will we go round in circles? Maybe


Sarasota County is considering replac-
ing the current East Venice Ave-
nue/Jacaranda Boulevard intersection
with a roundabout.
We'd like to go on record proposing a
nickname East Confusion.
Now, we're not traffic engineers, and we
usually like to know more about a project
before taking a position on it. We think we
know enough at this point, however, at least
to say, "Let's think this through."
Our friends at the Pelican Press recently
ran a guest column on roundabouts in
downtown Sarasota. The author, Rod
Warner, serves on the Citizens Advisory
Committee of the Metropolitan Planning
Organization (the policy makers for roads).
He wants roundabouts, and he lives where
they would be, so he's comfortable taking
his own medicine.
Among the reasons he thinks round-
abouts are a good idea are: They keep dri-


vers moving, reducing gas waste and pollu-
tion; there are no red lights to run, so there
would be fewer accidents, and the ones that
happen would be less serious; and they're
safer for pedestrians and bicyclists.
If a roundabout could make all those
good things happen, it's certainly worth
considering. We just don't know how big an
"if" that is, however, because of other fac-
tors in play. In no particular order:
Roundabouts are rare in the Venice area
- so rare that the next one will be the first
one. They're not really common at all in the
county, and the most prominent one, St.
Armands Circle, isn't a very good advertise-
ment for doing one here.
Of course, the intersection in question is
a few years away from resembling St. Ar-
mands Circle, but St. Armands isn't a stone's
throw from 1-75 either. How would a round-
about affect hurricane evacuation?
And part of the logic of putting a round-


about there is to bring the intersection up to
a level of service that would allow develop-
ment of adjoining parcels. Several projects
are currently hung up because of the cost of
improvements needed to handle a higher
volume of traffic.
Compounding a lack of familiarity with
roundabouts is how can we be diplomatic?
- that fact that some Venice-area motorists
aren't exactly known for their driving skills.
That's not a shot at senior drivers at
least not entirely. Many have spotless rec-
ords and would be preferable as a chauffeur
to one of the students who leaves Venice
High at light speed during the school year.
But if you've seen motorists turn into
oncoming traffic on the Hatchett Creek
Bridge; or stop at an intersection with no
stop sign, then run through the sign at the
next one; or stop in the middle of the bypass
to get their bearings, chances are pretty
good they were longtime Social Security


recipients. We have, and they were.
Seems to us a standard intersection is a
better fit for those drivers, and for people
who come here and are not familiar with
that area. Red lights may hold up traffic, but
they also give a driver a minute or two to try
to figure out where he is and what to do
next. We think that will become increasing-
ly important as the area develops.
So far, public opinion is anti-round-
about. Letters and Let'em Have It calls have
been almost unanimously opposed to the
idea. That's certainly not a scientifically
valid survey, and sometimes a government's
got to do what a government's got to do.
Public sentiment should pretty much al-
ways be part of the mix, however.
Despite those concerns, we'll keep an
open mind if the county will. Put out more
information, let us see a conceptual plan
and hold a public forum or two.
Don't forget to invite the city.


How does F










BOB VEDDER
PUBLISHER


Coming across my desk
was a book of facts about how
Florida stacks up statistically.
Certainly the state does not
excel in many areas, but since
a lot of the stats are negative
to begin with, this is mostly
good news.
Areas it could do well in -
like how many days of sun-
shine we get compared to
other states, or inches of
snow, or how little trouble we
have with our cars rusting -
were not covered.
A lot of the statistics were
favorable. For instance, in tax
burden as a percentage of
income (using 2006 figures),
Florida ranked 40th in the
country, which is a good
thing.
You might check to see if
your state tax burden is 9.7
percent of income. By con-
trast, Maine's was the worst at
13.5 percent and New York's
was 12.9.
Corporate taxes are also
40th in the country, a good
sales point for our Economic
Development Committee.
Looking at cigarette taxes,
Florida has one of the lowest
rates in the country at 33.9
cents. South Carolina wins
the prize of lowest with 7
cents, with a whole bunch of
tobacco states, such as Vir-
ginia, North Carolina, Ken-
tucky and Tennessee, about
where Florida is.
On the other hand Mich-
igan, Washington and New
Jersey all charge $2 or more a
pack. Of course, people then
go to Virginia and get a car-
load of cigarettes.
It has been pointed out
that those states with higher
taxes have reduced'smoking,
especially among teens.
Might be a good source of rev-
enue while solving a social
problem.
Gas taxes, on the other
hand, are pretty high: 21.5
cents per gallon contrasted
with Georgia's 7.5 cents. No
wonder it is ,a good idea to
wait to buy gas when you
head north.
Our housing costs are rela-
tively low, 19th, based on 2005
figures. The average house
was $189,000 (remember, it's
a statewide average) con-
trasted with California at
more than $477,000 and Ha-
waii not far behind.


lorida rank?

We are about average in
percentage of the population
under poverty level almost
13 percent. As you might
expect, the worst states are
Mississippi at 21.3 and Lou-
isiana at 19.8.
In the area of schools the
report card is not very good.
Expenditure 'per pupil in
2005-06 was $7,650, ranking
us 40th in the nation less
than half what is spent in
Washington, D.C., and about
half of New Jersey's spending,
$13,781 (neither of those is a
shining example of great
schools). There are studies
that indicate that money
spent is not the best indicator
of success.
In student-teacher ratio we
rank 41st, but likely not all the
effects of the class-size amend-
ment were figured into this.
Ours is 16.6 to 1 (I doubt it's that
good inVenice). InVermontit is
10.9 to 1 while; surprisingly,
NewYork has a ratio of 12.7 to 1.
Interestingly, Florida has more
charter schools than any states
except California and Arizona.
The ACT average score
ranks us 42nd in the nation,
although we do much better
in the elementary schools. We
rank 24th and 28th respec-
tively in math and reading
scores. Statewide we seem to
do quite well in the early
grades and quite poorly in
secondary education.
Crime is one area in which
we rank high as a state, fourth
in violent crime (thank you
very much, Tampa and Mi-
ami). There are 718 violent
crimes per 100,000 popula-
tion, while Vermont has 120.
This may be because its resi-
dents are bundled up in their
houses eight months a year
or, more likely, they have
good values. In property
crimes we rank 16th, with
4,008 per 100,000. Surpris-
ingly, the state of Washington
has 4,893.
We get $414 per capital in
highway funding, which is
25th in the nation.
The one area we almost are
best in, depending on your
view, is number of welfare
recipients. We rank 48th, with
.51 percent of our population
on welfare, while Washington,
D.C., has more than 6 percent
and Tennessee has 3 percent.
While as a state we are
average or below average, in
some of these categories our
area is at the top of the list.

InWednesday's paper I list-
ed supporters of the dine-out
day for Senior Friendship
from an early list I was sent.
Newly added are Althea's and
James Place, both downtown,
and Robbie's Reef on the
bypass.

It doesn't take a village in Venice

We moved here 10 years ago after a two-year sea

Also, it has been almost two years since Gol
Associates Inc. brought the short-term rental problem

It should be a priority to resolve this issue immec

VENICE GONDOLIER SUN 11A


SUNDAY, AUG. 5, 200U/ WWW.vIcEOuuLIEuuLcn..uivi


BY MICHAEL SOLE
GUEST COLUMNIST

The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection has
announced significant chang-
es to the agency's enforcement
guidelines, also known as our
penalty guidelines.
Underscoring a commit-
ment to protecting Florida's
environment, the updates will
result in stiffer penalties for the
most serious environmental
violations and highlight the
leadership of Gov. Charlie Crist
in protecting our natural re-
sources.
' DEP initiates thousands of
legal actions involving penalty
fees every year, and I am proud
of the hard work by our legal
team, our law enforcement
officers and our program staff
in pursuing enforcement
actions where warranted. Now
I have instructed our team,
through these new guidelines,
to also focus on "the worst of
the worst" violators.
Utilized* for nearly three
decades now, DEP's penalty
guidelines provide direction to
calculate monetary penalties
for violations of our environ-
mental protection statutes and
rules. In 2001, the Florida Leg-
'islature passed the Environ-
mental Litigation Reform Act to
provide further direction by
outlining a clear and efficient
process to address less signifi-
cant violations, which repre-
sent approximately 90 percent
of enforcement cases annually.
ELRA has decreased the
time it takes DEP to resolve
less-significant cases re-
ducing the average length of
time from two years to four
months and has provided a
more efficient basis for negoti-
ating settlements in cases
involving penalties of $10,000
or less.
However, the penalties for
more significant violations
have not kept pace with Flor-


idea's economy. I have been in
public service with DEP for 16
years prior to having the hon-
or of being tapped by Gov.
Crist to lead this agency, and I
know the penalties have not
always been a deterrent for
the most egregious violators.
It is time to take the next
step. We do not want a Florida
- and taxpayers do not want
a Florida where penalties
and fines are "just the cost of
doing business" here.
The updates to the penalty
guidelines I have just signed
- which take effect immedi-
ately- address violations not
covered under ELRA, specifi-
cally those significant infrac-
tions resulting in fines of
$10,000 or more.
The stiffer penalties could
apply to about 10 percent of
enforcement actions taken by
the agency but represent be-
tween 50 and 75 percent of
the total penalty amounts as-
sessed by DEP for major vio-
lations.
The department takes
compliance of state rules and
regulations seriously. By in-
creasing penalties and pro-
viding clearer guidelines, the
DEP is taking a tougher
stance on infractions that:
Involve hazardous waste
or hazardous substance viola-
tions;
Result in economic bene-
fit to a company or individual;
Are intentional or habitual;
Cause significant harm to
the environment; or
Continue over an extend-
ed period of time.
Agency enforcement ac-
tions for hazardous waste vio-
lations amount to nearly 20
percent of total actions annu-
ally. These violations account
for nearly $5 million annually
in assessed penalties, or more
than 15 percent of total pen-
alties.
With the stricter guidelines
in place, assessed penalty


amounts for significant viola-
tions is expected to increase
by nearly a third.
Also, under the previous
penalty guidelines, most multi-
day penalties utilized the full
amount only for the first day.
Therefore, a 30-day violation
with a $10,000 maximum pen-
alty per day might have result-
ed in a $39,000 fine, or $10,000
for the first day and $1,000 for
the remaining 29 days.
However, under the new
guidelines, the recommend-
edpenaltywould be $10,000 a
day for 30 days, resulting in a
total of $300,000 an in-
crease of nearly 770 percent.
To achieve more protection
for Florida's environment, the
department also enhances the
impact of traditional monetary
penalties with beneficial in-
kind and pollution prevention
projects that both improve the
way companies do business
and result in environmental
benefits.
For example, in-kind and
pollution prevention projects
often require companies to
make considerable capital
investments to upgrade oper-
ations, reduce waste, help
communities and restore the
environment.
For those who misinter-
pret or purposefully inischar-
acterize these types of pro-
jects and criticize .DEP's total
fines, I humbly suggest they
tell the public the full story
and let the taxpayers of Flor-
ida decide.

Insurers were let off the hook


Clobber them. This is a comment about the tax breaks and
the tax law changes. The average homeowner will save about
$60 to $100 a year. At least we're getting something for our
taxes. They should have one after the insurance companies;
they're robbing us of thousands and thousands of dollars, peo-
ple are losing their home because of this. The state govern-
ment should have gone after the insurance companies, not the
taxes. The insurance companies need to get clobbered.


Wasted. I'm calling in
about the water park down-
town. I agree with the caller
who talked about it being
such a waste. I don't under-
stand how Sarasota County
and the city of Venice can talk
about water conservation
and then waste the amount of
water that is wasted in that
park. And unsupervised kids
- I was there the other day
and I witnessed a lady drop-
ping off her child and going
over to shop, leaving her child
to be tended to by the other
two people who were sitting
there. This is going to be a
crime one of these days when
something happens. So, you
want my opinion? Shut it
down. It's not worth it.
Smiling. I disagree very
strenuously with the caller
who said the fountain was
wasting water and tax money.
It is one of the most delightful
things about downtown Ven-
ice. I'm a woman approach-
ing 60 years old and I smile
every time I drive by it to see
the children frolicking in the
water and the parents sitting
by watching them. It's a gath-
ering place. And the Gulf is
not a safe place for small chil-
dren. She says, "Take them
down to the beach two blocks
away." Well, that's fine for
older children, but toddlers
and small children should not
be in the Gulf waters. It's an
absolutely delightful addition
to downtown Venice and it
should be kept open as long
as possible.
Brickbats. I'm glad to see


the Rialto Shopping Center
being improved; however, the
rehab has bricks, and I don't
think bricks belong in a
Northern Italian Mediter-
ranean architecture plan. Has
this improvement to the Ri-
alto Shopping Center been
approved by city council and
not just the planning com-
mission? I think we need to be
putting some teeth into our
overlay districts and keep the
atmosphere looking Mediter-
ranean.
EDITOR'S NOTE: The shopping
center owners haven't asked to do
anything yet that would require
city council approval.
Trucked. I find Mr. Vedder's
column enlightening. He has
a lot of good ideas in there
about how to clean this town
up and keep things going -
clean the grass off the bridges
and all that. But I just want to
ask a question. Why at city
hall do they have all those
trucks over there, and cars?
What do these people do?
Don't they drive around town
and check things out or have
people oUt there cleaning
things up? We pay taxes for
the trucks to do that, why
can't they do that? Or get the
prisoners who are in there for
minor things and get them to
clean up the highways. Let
them do something to earn
their keep.
Anti the antis. I'm a young
mother trying to raise my
daughter in this town, which I
love, and where we chose to
move to. Very often we get
negative comments from old


people about not wanting
kids here and not wanting
young families here. In last
Friday's column, I see you
printing two things against
pregnancy parking and one
thing against the children's
fountain, that it's a waste of
taxpayers' money. It's a real
shame that your paper con-
tinually prints everything
against young people and
nothing for them.
EDITOR'S NOTE: We print what
we get, and often it is negative
because people with a complaint
are much more likely to speak up
than those who have good things
to say. But as you have seen from
recent Let'em Have It columns, the
vast majority of callers love the
fountain.
Get a life. I'm calling about
whether the city should shut
down the children's fountain
in downtown Venice. Defin-
itely not. It's a wonderful
thing. If you've ever been
down there and watched the
children playing, it's great to
watch them. It's fun to just go
down there and sit and just
enjoy the evening. Sorry to
hear this person is so unhap-
py about that. Get a life.

The Let'em Have li hne allows
readers to sound off on issues'

I am very concerned about
the horrific murders that hap-
pened recently. I am suggest-
ing as a community we take a
stand against violence.
I had the privilege of work-

passionate young man who
was just trying to make his way
in this world like the rest of us, a
man who was in the wrong
place at the wrong time: his
home.
I suggest we all take a good,
long look at this and acknowl-
edge that it could have been
anyone someone thought was
worth robbing.
I believe if we could start a
petition asking to enforce the


full impact of our legal system
and demand life without pa-
role, we would be sending a
message to all criminals to stay
out of Englewood.
I, myself, intend to start this
petition and personally bring it
to the courthouse. God bless all
of us, and let's hope they are
deterred from our neighbor-
hoods.

BY DEBBIE KIEWIET
SPORTS EDITOR


Before the new 55,000-
square-foot YMCA facility
opened earlier this year on
Center Road in Venice, four
dance classes were offered at
the YMCA with a total of 50
kids participating in the
dance program.
When the fall session of
classes starts later this month,
dance classes will be offered
in everything from hip hop to
ballet for children as young as
18 months up through eighth
grade.
"We've got room for a cou-
ple of hundred students now,"
said Whitney Carter, dance


and cheer instructor at the
YMCA.
With the opening of the
new facility, aerobics was
moved from the dance and
gymnastics area in the origi-
nal building to fitness class-
rooms in the new building.
That freed up space to create
two new dance studios where
the old aerobics room once
was.
"I'm ecstatic," Carter said.
"I love the new studio rooms,
and I'm. very excited about
bringing dance to the Venice
community."
Me & My Shadow
For children 18 to 36
months is "Me & My Shadow,"


Summer Dance Camp students at the YMCA are in costume for
their production of "Hairspray" with dance teachers Dawn
Jezik and Whitney Carter.

Students go through their stretches at the start of a class in one of the new dance studios at the YMCA.


a parent-child class that puts
basic dance movements to
music. Creative movement
and basic dance steps are
taught in the pre-dance class
for boys and girls ages 3 to 5.
Kindergarten students have
their own class that combines
jazz and rhythm with ballet
movements. Ballet, tap, lyri-
cal, hip hop, contemporary,
pop, Broadway and "cheer-
dancin'" are also offered in
12-week sessions for fall, win-
ter and spring with various
times and age groups. An
end-of-the-year dinner dance
theater is being planned for
the spring session.
In the future, Carter said,
dance classes for high school
students and adults will be
added. "We want to get the
program up and running
first," she said.
Limited space
Dance classes have been
offered at the YMCA for 10
years, but the limited space
restricted the number of
classes that could be offered.
"We totally lacked the pro-
gramming space," said Mi-
chelle Guy, head of the gym-
nastics department. "This is
something we've always
wanted to do."
A new pro shop, offices
and a lobby with windows on
both studios are also part of
the expansion. "For years
we've been selling leotards off

the wall in the gymnastics
area," Guy said.
So many new classes are
being offered that the YMCA
has added a dance instructor
to assist Carter.. Another
instructor trained in technical
ballet is still needed. Helping
out this summer was Dawn
Jezik, a student and dance
captain at Florida Gulf Coast
University.
Carter, who's taught at the


YMCA for 3 1/2 years, has a
background in both dance
and cheerleading. She started
dancing when she was 2 years
old and by fourth grade was
dancing on pointe with the
University of Louisville Ballet
Company. She decided to "go
the cheerleading route" her
freshman year in high school
and was a varsity cheerleader
four years at DuPont Manual
High School in Louisville, Ky.


At Western Kentucky Uni-
versity in Bowling Green,
Carter majored in recreation
and physical education and
taught gymnastics, cheer-
leading and dance at a local
gym. Her senior internship
was at aYMCA, and she mov-
ed to Florida in 2003.
One-stop shopping
At theVeniceYMCA, Carter
teaches dance, cheerleading
and gymnastics. The YMCA
has a competitive gymnastics
team and this year will also
have a competitive cheer
team.
"The one thing I like about
theY," Carter said, "is that it's
one-stop shopping. Kids can
do dance and gymnastics
back-to-back. It's convenient
for the parents."
The 12-week dance ses-
sions as well as gymnastics
and cheerleading will run
Aug. 27-Nov. 19, Nov. 26-
March 1 and March 3-May 24.
Most dance classes* are $80
per session for members and
$120 for nonmembers. Pay-
ments can also be made
monthly via bank draft or
credit card draft.
Registration can be made
online at veniceymca.com or
at the front desk of the Venice
YMCA. For information call

Capri Isles opens doors for budding young golfers.


F or the youngest
group in the Junior
Golf Program at
Capri Isles Golf
Club, every Saturday the dri-
ving range was turned into a
six-hole course. The two
intermediate groups played
five holes on the club's
course, and the more ad-
vanced group nine.
A total of 114 young golfers
up to age 17 participated in
the new program this sum-
mer. The youngest group, the
Doodle Bugs, included chil-
dren from 4 to 7 years old.
Along with the fundamentals
of golf, they were taught golf
etiquette, and even the
Doodle Bugs could recite
some of the rules:
;"Don't talk when people,
are trying to putt."
"Never cross the street
without a grownup."
"Boys should take their
hats off when they go inside."
"Don't use a tee on the
green."
"Always use a rake after
you step in a bunker."
Helping out with the
junior golfers were Capri Isles
head pro Michael Cummings,
pros Patty Simpson and.
Rebecca Johnson, Lemon Bay
Golf Club pro Missy Eldridge,
Lemon Bay High School
Coach Darall Roach, and at


least a dozen volunteers.
Parents were encouraged to
stay and participate, too.
Teaching refreshes
Among the volunteers
were Venice High School stu-
dents Crystal Smith and

"Teaching the
little kids the
basics helps you
remember it. It
refreshes you."
Crystal Smith

Kayla Chanel Rhodus. As the
official Gatorade/water girl,
Rhodus kept everyone on the
course hydrated. Smith, a
member of the VHS golf
team, helped with lessons.
"Teaching the little kids the
basics helps you remember it.
It refreshes you," said Smith,
who's been playing golf since
she was 9 years old. Her first
teacher was Simpson.
Keeping shirts tucked in is
another rule the young
golfers were taught this sum-
mer. "Like any other sport,
there's a uniform," Simpson


said. "We work on rules and
etiquette with every group."
Saturday was awards day
and the last day of this sum-
mer's program. Children were
allowed to not only let their
shirts hang out but to wear
their swimsuits for games
and contests on the slip-and-
slide and bounce house.
Lifetime sport
"Golf is a game of a life-
time," Simpson said. "It's
good for eye-hand coordina-
tion. It's good for flexibility.
The high school kids all have
to walk, so there's your mus-
cle tone."*
Simpson, who's been
teaching in Florida for 15
years, grew up under Hall of
Famer Peggy Kirk Bell. Now in
her 80s and still teaching, Kirk
Bell-recently hosted the LPGA
Women's Open at Pine
Needles in North Carolina.
"She has a huge love for
kids," Simpson said. "You
become what you live."
Simpson spends most of
the year teaching adults and
looks forward to summer and
the children.
"Just seeing the excitement
in their faces is great. They
just light up," she said.
For the last 10 years,
Simpson assisted Eldridge
with the summer junior pro-


gram at Lemon Bay Golf Club
in Englewood. Last year, the
program lost its home while
the Lemon Bay course was
being refurbished. Simpson
approached Capri Isles with
the idea of hosting the youth
program.
New home
Owner Rob McCoy and
head pro Cummings agreed,


and the members threw their
support behind it, giving up
their course to the children
every Saturday and donating
$3,000 to the program as well:
Sister clubs Calusa Lakes and
Waterford chipped in, too.
The program was such a suc-
cess last year that Capri Isles
decided to hold its own junior
program this summer.
The cost for each child was


$10 a day with 10 Saturday
sessions held throughout the
summer. The fee included a
shirt, a one-hour lesson each
week, lunch, a weekly tourna-
ment, prizes and awards.
Children got a bag tag with
their name on it .and free
range balls all summer. They
could also play any day all
summer for $3.
"If you think about the
average kid today," Simpson
said, "they're one-on-one
with a computer. There are no
socialskills. That's the saddest
part. 'Golf gets them off the
computer and out of the
house. It gets them socializing
with other kids. Everyone is
included. No one is left out.
"In this day and age, so
many kids feel like they don't
fit in. God didn't create junk.
They're all amazing. They all
fit in."

BY TED RANK
STAFF ESCRITOR
Hang on to your sanity,
ladies and gentlemen. It's
time for News from Ecine-
ville.
It's been a tough couple
of months for the residents
of Ecineville.
The island floating out to
sea.
A major wrestling match
to determine the control of
the nation.
The 34 Sons of Ecineville
planning to commit horri-
ble acts of nonviolent civil
disobedience.
An Ecineville High
School history teacher
being arrested for teaching
false history.
And, of course, the most
recent incident at Casper-
theghost Beach at the Fasto
Senior Beach Volleyball
Tournament.
Thanks to two visionar-
ies at Ecineville City Hall,
our fair city celebrated
some much needed relief
during a citywide celebra-
tion of our town and our
people.

The News


ger Martha "Colors" Jesket
are sharing credit for the
Ecineville Life Celebration
party that was held Satur-
day at Bicentennial Park in
Ecineville.
More than 3,500 people
danced to a variety of music
from local groups, includ-
ing Bunny Niceguy Band
and The Skipping Rocks.
People sang.
Children danced.
There was a variety of
food to eat; all donated by
local restaurants.
Fried chicken, ribs, corn
pizza, caracois, hot dogs,
corn and pasta.
There was just every kind
of food you could imagine.
SIt was a beautiful day with
mild temperatures.
Games including Frisbee,
horseshoes, shuffleboard,
volleyball, badminton and
dominoes were being played
all over the park.
The interactive water
park was filled with children
cooling off and laughing as
they played together.
Actors from the Ecine-
ville Tiny Theatre per-
formed delightful skits for a
large audience in the north-
west corner of the park.
The Ecineville Free Jam-


min' Band took the stage
near the center of the park,
performing popular songs
you could sing along to.
Children had their faces
painted by local artists.
There was an area where
local poets gave readings.
The county was kind
enough to supply buses to
bring elderly residents to
the park who had no other
way to be transported.
An old-fashioned car-
ousel was brought in by a
local business and hun-
dreds were thrilled to ride
the mechanical horses.
The fun, games and joy
lasted well into the night
and was brought to a con-
clusion by fireworks at
Caspertheghost Beach.
Everything was perfect.
It was a wonderful day.
Nothing went wrong.
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 great here
in Ecineville.
Uh-oh. What was that
noise?

FINE WHINES

Answering the tough questions


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


Marilyn vos Savant, the woman with the
world's highest IQ, devoted her recent Parade
magazine column to "Questions too Funny to
Answer."
Well, I didn't think they were all that funny.
I think they stumped her and she couldn't
admit it because then she wouldn't look like
such a brainiac.
As it so happens, Marilyn and I have the
exact same IQ number (OK, mine has a deci-
mal point, but the numbers are the same),
and I'm not afraid to answer the tough ques-
tions, so here goes:
Q.: Are there bathrooms in heaven?
A.: Yes, they have Atigel Soft toilet paper
and are cleaned by people condemned to hell.
Q.: Didn't Louis XIII have any furniture?
Everybody's heard about his son's furniture,
but what about him?
A.: Louis XIII did have furniture, but he sold
most of it at a yard sale when he downsized
into a condo after he retired. Elvis Presley
bought the rest later, and it can now be seen at
Graceland.
Q.: Does a 10-gallon hat really hold that
much? They don't look big enough.
A.: "Gallon" in this context isn't the liquid
measure; it comes from the Spanish "galon,"
which means "brain cell."
Q.: Suppose we could get all living beings
on Earth to face one direction and then begin


running. Would this influence the speed of the
Earth's rotation?
A.: Yes. In fact, Einstein theorized that such
an effort would make time travel possible, but
only about five minutes forward or backward.
Q.: When I dream, why don't I need my
glasses to see?
A.: Because stupid people have 20/20
vision when they sleep.
Q.: Can a ventriloquist communicate with
his dentist while his teeth are being worked
on?
A.: Yes, but for reasons medical science
can't explain, he can't communicate with his
proctologist under similar circumstances.
Q.: Who gets to peel all those popcorn
shrimp?
A.: Earl and Skeeter.
Q.: If fish could sneeze, and a whole school
of fish sneezed all at once, how big of a wave
would it create?
A.: It depends on the fish. If you're talking
guppies, you'd probably not notice it. If it were
large fish, it could be as much as several hun-
dred feet. Scientists think a school of whale
sharks with a severe cold could explain the
disappearance of Atlantis.
Q.: I see falling stars nearly every night.
They seem to have come out of nowhere.
Have stars ever fallen out of any known con-
stellations?
A.: You mean besides Lindsay Lohan?

Dine out
Last week when I wrote
about eating out on Aug 7 to
benefit the Senior Friendship
Centers, the information I
had didn't list one of my
favorite restaurants, Althea's.
When you enjoy breakfast,
lunch or dinner at the famous
Miami Avenue eatery, be sure
to mention the center so a
portion of your heck can be
sent its way.
Out and about
Summer in Venice means


locals explore the avenues.
This week I saw Marion Ogle
and Diane Solomon on their
way to lunch. ..
Diane handed me a bro-
chure with information about
music for any occasion.

"Disney once said, "it you can
dream' it, you can 'do it." "
About 10 years., ago when I
was teaching fifth grade at
Taylor Ranch School a young
dance instructor approached
the principal, Bob Earley,
with the idea of ballroom
dancing for fifth-grade stu-
dents. I encouraged this sen-
sational idea and within
weeks boys and girls were
learning to waltz, cha-cha
and swing.
At the end of the instruction
students demonstrated their
techniques for their parents at
the Venice Community Center.


The event was featured in the
'Venice' G6doliertSu.'h '
Fast forward 10 years'aid
that 'd&ice instruffir, Wlson
Barrera, was recently 'iamed
the No. 2 top teacher at
the Millennium DanceSport
Championship in St. Petersburg.
His dream of a local DanceSport
competition is a reality.
Bravo, Wilson.

WUSF Public Broadcasting seeks World War II stories


FROM WUSF


WUSF Public Broadcasting
is collecting stories from
those who lived through
World War II for its Florida
Stories series. Stories can
come from people who
served in the military during
World War II, or from people
who kept the family together
onthe home front while loved
ones were offto war.
Each week, Florida Stories
presents unique and com-
pelling stories told by the peo-
ple who lived them. These are
stories of hope and inspira-
tion, fear and triumph, laugh-
ter and tears personal and
intimate conversations be-
tween the storyteller and a
friend or family member.
Florida Stories interviews
are designed to be conversa-
tions between people who are
a part of each others' lives.
WUSF provides a trained
facilitator to work with the
gests during the recording
process. Participants are pre-
sented with a CD keepsake of
the recording.
WU'SF began to air World
.War II stories just before
Memorial Day and will con-
tinue to air them through Vet-
erans Day in conjunction
with Ken Bum's new PBS doc-
umentary, "The War."
To share an extraordinary
story with WUSF Public
Broadcasting participants can
register online at wusf.org
and click on the Tell Your
Story link. Someone from
WUSF will call to discuss the


.story and confirm reserva-
tions for recording at the
Donis Studio on the Tampa
campus of the University of


South Florida. Select Florida
Stories are aired during All
Things Considered on 89:7,
Friday at 5:30 p.m.

PETS


A bird's life, and stopping dog's bad eating habits


13B
SUNDAY
2007


DR. ANNE CHAUVET
ASKTHIEVE

Q. I have a 4-year-old cock-
atiel that has just started laying
eggs. She has laid two eggs a
week for the past four weeks. I
keep her on a screened patio
during the summer months. I
am not sure what to do for her.
Please advise!
A. Summer's longer days
are increasing your bird's
egg-laying. You can manage
the number of eggs she lays
by regulating the amount of
daylight she receives. The
ideal is 12 hours of light and
12 hours of darkness. You
may wish to get a cover for
her cage or move her into a
darkened room. Over time,
she will decrease her egg lay-


ing, which is less stressful
physically and better for her
health. Eggs should stay in the
cage with her for about 10
days. Removing them sooner
will lead to more laying.
Be sure your bird main-
tains a balanced diet with a
good quality cockatiel food
from the pet store, either
seed or pellets, and supple-
ment with fresh fruits and
vegetables every day. Your
cockatiel also should have a
cuttlebone. Vitamin and
mineral supplements are a
good idea as well.
Q. How long do parakeets
live? My little guy is more than
10 years old. I put him out on
our patio so he can keep our
cockatiel company.
A. Parakeets can live up to
20 years in captivity, so you
likely will have your little
friend for some time.
It is fine to keep birds on
the patio as long as they are
isolated from any potential
threats, like neighborhood
cats and, since we are in
Florida, alligators. I would
not leave them out overnight
unless your patio is secure
from nighttime predators like


opossums and raccoons.
Screens probably are not
adequate protection.
Be sure that your birds are
placed out of direct sunlight
during all parts of the day
and give them lots of fresh
water. They also should not
be exposed to temperature
extremes. If they are mostly
indoor birds, do not leave
them out in blisteringly hot
weather and, likewise, take
them in if it is below
70 degrees.
These questions were
answered in collaboration
with Dr. Carolyn Kohn of
River Forest Animal Hospital.
Q. Why do dogs eat their
feces?


A. This is a common issue
and, naturally, causes a lot of
alarm and concern. It is
known as coprophagia, and
can occur for a multitude of
reasons. In addition to their
own feces, owners report
dogs raiding the cat's litter
box or eating other types of
mammalian feces. It is more
common in puppies, and
dogs commonly outgrow the
behavior.
Your first step in correct-
ing this behavior is to consult
your veterinarian to rule out
any gastrointestinal disor-
ders that could be causing
the problem..If no physical
reason is found, then you
must look for other causes.

develop voracious appetites
and eat just about anything.
Conversely, overfed dogs or
those with problems absorb-
ing nutrients may develop
this behavior. Some experts
believe inadequate exercise
and environmental stimula-
tion can contribute to the
problem.
Overcoming this behavior


can be a challenge. First of
all, limit access to feces by
picking up after your dog
and maintaining a clean
yard. Teach the dog to come
to you immediately after he
defecates, and keep him on a
leash whenever he is outside
to restrict his access to other
animals' feces.
You also could use a
remote-acting training collar
with a harmless spray (cit-
ronella) that interrupts the
behavior and trains your dog
to stop eating feces. You can
also modify your dog's diet
by adding more fiber or veg-
etable oil, which can pro-
duce stools that are less
appealing.

PHOTO COURTESY OF EARS
Several months ago, EARS Animal Rescue Sanctuary volun-
teer Connie Wofford traveled to Mobile, Ala., and came
home with several dogs lost or abandoned in Hurricane
Katrina. Blondie and Dagwood would like to stay together,
however, EARS will consider separating them for the right
homes. These 1 1/2-year-old Golden Labrador mixes are
friendly and would make wonderful family pets. Blondie
can scale a 4-foot-tall fence. To adopt these lovable pups,
