Fire damages Venice businesses


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER


A fire at a local business
shut down northbound traffic
on South Tamiami Trail for
more than an hour Wednes-
day evening.
The fire started at about
4:30 p.m. at Old World French
Polishing, 241 South Tamiami
Trail, in the Venetian Traders
building.
Venice Fire Chief John
Reed said the fire is still under
investigation, but it has been
deemed accidental by the fiWe
marshal. Arson is not sus-
pected.
The fire started in a gar-
bage can in the back of the
unit, Reed said.
Firefighters were alerted by
an alarm that went off inside
the building.
Pam Johnson, public infor-
mation officer for the city of
Venice, said four fire engines
responded, three from Venice
and, one from Nokomis.
Johnson saidno one was
hurt and no one was inside
the building when the fire
started.
Old World French Pol-
ishing is owned by Diego


Valotti, who was unavailable
for comment.
Jean Trammell, managing
director of The Venice Com-
pany, which owns the build-
ing, said there was fire dam-
age only to the Old World
French Polishing unit in the
building.
Johnson said two of the
units had smoke damage, and
Trammell said each of the
units had a strong, smoky
smell. The smell was still pre-
sent Thursday morning when
she checked on the property.
Jolanta Dul, who owns
Applied Massage Therapy two
doors down from Old World
French Polishing, was there at
the time of the fire.
"I can't see clients with that
smell," Dul said.. "It's pretty
smoky. I can see it from here."
Trammell said it was the
first fire The Venice Company
has had in 25 years.
Dul. was glad there wasn't
more damage.
"I'm glad no one was in the
building they're safe," Dul
said. "It's scary to see it like
this. Thank God for smoke de-
tectors and alarms."

City, county prepare to address hot topics


A joint meeting slated for September has a
growing list of projects to discuss.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

County officials narrowed
it down to three broad issues


- the joint planning agree-
ment,/, airport master plan
update and scrub jays but
city staff are pushing for a
more detailed list of projects


and issues to chat about at an
upcoming joint meeting in
September.
To be clear, Venice City
Manager Marty Black pre-
pared a draft list of 18 items
for discussion. He's circulat-,
ing the list among city council
members for feedback.


No. 1 on the list is the
county-proposed round-
about at Jacaranda Boulevard
and Venice Avenue (and other
traffic lights and improve-
ments proposed by the coun-
ty).
The county is expected to
bring in its lead consultant to


educate city council and the
public on the use of round-
abouts at the September
meeting. A date has yet to be
set.
Black said he's keeping an
open mind about the issue,

School athletic facilities policy to be proposed


Budway announces city council campaign


BY RACHEL BROWN
HACKNEY
PELICAN PRESS


o In spite of recent incidents
of vandalism at two schools'
athletic facilities, the Sarasota
County School Board mem-
bers say they want a district
policy that will keep such
facilities open to the public as
much as possible.
Chief Operating Officer
Scott Lempe raised the van-
dalism issue at the board's
Aug. 14 work session, noting
the district -spent about
$315,000 during the last fiscal
year on tennis and basketball
court maintenance.
Slightly more than $60,000
of that went to repairs at
Laurel Nokomis School, while
almost $30,000 was spent at
Brookside Middle School.
The tennis courts at Brook-
side were closed to the public
after the vandalism occurred
at that school, Lempe pointed
out, but a member of the
public subsequently com-
plained. When the tennis
courts were reopened to the
public, further incidents of
vandalism occurred, Lempe
said: Oil had been spilled on
the courts, a net had been
torn, broken glass littered one
area of the courts and marks
on a wall indicated skate-
boarders possibly had used it
for practicing stunts.
A memo Lempe distrib-
uted to the board said, "Cur-
rent procedures are inconsis-
tent and unique to each
school. For example, some

schools are wide open (Taylor
Ranch) while others are com-
pletely secured (Fruitville,
Brentwood). Some grant ac-
cess to local homeowners as-
sociations (Bay Haven) while
others are used, by agree-
ment, as public parks. In
these latter cases the county
pays for maintenance and
repair.

"These are supposed
.to be neighborhood
schools, No. 1, and
they are owned by
the taxpayers of
Sarasota County."
Sarasota County
School Board Chair
Frank Kovach


Win-win
With Pine View School in
Osprey, for example, Lempe
said, the tennis courts are
used by the public when the
school does not need them.
Sarasota County Parks and
Recreation, by agreement
with the district, undertakes
the maintenance of the
courts and pays for it.
"That's the kind of a model
that's win-win," he told the
board.
Parks and Recreation offi-
cials, he added, had express-
ed to him "at least some inter-
est in expanding that kind of

relationship."
Board member Carol Todd
asked whether it would be
possible to enter into similar
cooperative arrangements
with the cities of Sarasota and
North Port.
"I'm sure we can," Lempe
responded.
"I would. like to see that,"
board member Caroline Zuck-
er said.
Noting he had grown up
playing basketball after hours
at Gulf Gate Elementary
School in Sarasota, Chair
Frank Kovach said, "These are
supposed to be neighbor-
hood schools, No. 1, and they
are owned by the taxpayers of
Sarasota County."' ,
"I could see closing the
schools at dusk," board mem-
ber Shirley Brown said.
"I think a partnership is an
excellent idea," said Vice
Chair Kathy Kleinlein, refer-
ring to new agreements with
the county and cities.
Kleinlein did voice con-
cerns, however, that if facili-
ties were not maintained
properly, "we're also liable if
someone comes and breaks
their leg.... We are a very liti-
gious society today. It's not
what it was 20 years ago when
we were kids.
"I don't think we should
just willy-nilly open up every-
thing."

The airport development
issue has spawned another
candidate for city council.
Gary Budway, 67, announc-
ed his intention this week to
run for council seat No. 5, cur-
rently held byJim Woods.
Budway's said he won't
accept campaign contribu-
tions, and is only running for
one three-year stint.
"I'm not beholden to any-
one," he said. "I am entering
the council race as a candi-
date completely independent
of any political groups or
organizations."
Budway said he is not
against improving the airport,
but he is against enlarging it.
"It's meant to be a small
airport," he said.
In a prepared statement, he.
said he stands for common-
sense growth, and is concerned
about hidden agendas and
vocal special interest groups.
"The ongoing airport dis-
cussion is an example of what
happens when special inter-
ests try to undermine a sim-
ple desire of the majority of
citizens and taxpayers of the
city," he wrote.
"My views on this subject
are neither pro- or anti-
growth, but for common-
sense, planned, well-thought-
out and discussed growth.
"I don't golf, fly airplanes or
have any financial interests
regarding the (airport), home-
owners association or the
chamber of commerce," he


wrote.
Budway is a retired Mich-
igan correc-
tions supervi-
sor at a men's
maximum se-
curity prison, T,
and served as
its union rep-
resentative.
Hd is current-
ly vice presi- Budw
dent on the Budway
board of di-
rectors of the Curry Creek
Homeowners Association.
He serves on an explorato-
ry committee that is looking


at developing a mooring site
near the Venice Yacht Club.
Budway joins a growing list
of candidates who've ex-
pressed interest in running
for council.
He and local business
owner Ernest Roland Carter
plan to run against Woods.
Mayor Fred Hammett and
Ernie Zavodnyik have also
filed preliminary paperwork.
Council Member BillWillson's
term also expires this year.
More candidates are ex-
pected when the official filing
period begins Sept. 4.

Pass application process slows to a crawl


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


All the Midnight Pass
restoration hoopla that once
surrounded efforts to re-
establish the coastal iflet
between Siesta Key and Casey
Key has died away, but the
tedious application process
for obtaining federal and state
permits to dredge has not.
More than two and a half
years have elapsed since
Sarasota County consultant
Karyn Erickson began a dia-
logue with the government
authorities and scientists who
will decide whether permits
are issued, and the question-
and-response drills continue
unabated.
Next week,' the coastal
engineer will journey to
Tallahassee again for another
meeting with Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental
Protection officials, this time
about sediment issues. She'll
be accompanied by Spencer
Anderson, a county project
manager.
Next month, Erickson will
forward a fifth round of
answers to what the state calls
RAls, the acronym for
"Requests for Additional
Information." The county ini-
tially hoped there would be
only three rounds of RAIs, but
now accepts it was overly
optimistic.
"We went through eight
rounds of RAIs before receiv-
ing state permits for the South
Siesta Key beach restoration
project," Anderson said.
"When the sediment issues
are addressed we will turn to
mitigation impacts and an
inlet management plan."
Timetables for an actual
Midnight Pass restoration
project are hazy, at best. If
everything goes without a
hitch, the state could
announce its intention to
issue permits early next year.
Or it could declare the RAI
phase complete and sum-


marily reject them.
"What could slow the
process is legal challenges
from project opponents if the
state announces its intention
to issue permits," Anderson
said. "If there are no chal-
lenges, then we still have the
Army Corps of Engineers to
deal with. It is under no time
constraints."
In a perfect world, a con-
tract could be awarded for
work to begin sometime next
year. But reality dictates the
RAI. process, project .chal-
lenges and permit dialogue
with the Army Corps will
probably extend into 2009.
And then, maybe, work could
be scheduled in 2010.
"We hope there won't be a
lot more back-and-forth with
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection,
and it won't need any more
information," Anderson said.
"What we want is an
announcement our permit
application is complete, and a
yes or no answer."
The estimated price tag for
restoring Midnight Pass now
stands at about $40 million -
$10 million to remove the
sand plus $1 million a year
over 30 years t6 monitor and
maintain a channel cut from
Little Sarasota Bay into the
Gulf of Mexico.
So far, there is no county
funding plan for a restoration
if permits are issued. A
lengthy list of programs and
infrastructure projects could
proceed if voters approve a
15-year extension of the local


option sales tax, but Midnight
Pass isn't on it.
The popular coastal inlet
became unstable in the 1970s
and was closed in 1983 after it
migrated northward and

threatened to undermine two
Siesta Key beachfront homes.
It is now a narrow stretch of
beach that connects Siesta
Key with Casey Key.
In 1988, the county sub-
mitted a Midnight Pass
restoration proposal that was
denied by state authorities in
1991 after a permit process
that went on for almost three
years. A county appeal failed,
but restoration advocates
refused to quit.
In November 2004, Erick-
son mailed off permit appli-
cations to U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers and Florida Depar-
tment of Environmental Pro-
tection that describe how a
dredging project could work
to remove sand from the for-

Lord house gets foundation grant


FROM GULF COAST
COMMUNITY
FOUNDATION OF VENICE

The city of Venice will
receive grants to help it
restore a unique piece of its
past and to outfit a new mul-
timedia community room
that will double as the city's
emergency operations center
in the future.
In addition, South County
Family YMCA was awarded a
nearly $200,000 grant to sup-
port its effort to create a
model preschool to help raise
the quality of all childcare
providers in our community.
These awards were part of
almost $2 million in grants
approved, by Gulf Coast
Community Foundation of
Venice's board of directors this
week.
The foundation awarded a
$35,000 grant to the city for its
project to restore the Lord
Family House, the oldest
existing home in southern
Sarasota County. The grant
will fund the final architectur-
al plans and drawings for ren-
ovation of the historic home's
exterior to its original 1896
appearance.
This phase of the overall
project is critical to the Venice
Historical Preservation Board's
efforts to secure further fund-
ing from various sources to
complete the exterior and then
interior renovation of the
home.
Educational
When the restoration is
completed, the Lord Family
House will serve as a unique


educational resource to teach
students, residents, and visi-
tors about the pioneer days in
Venice from 1890 to 1920.
Two funds were previously
established at the foundation
to help support preservation
of the Lord Family House and
to provide an endowment for
its ongoing maintenance.
The city of Venice. Fire
Department will receive a
$56,799 foundation grant to
outfit a multimedia confer-
ence and training facility for
community use at its new fire
station on Laurel Road east of
Interstate 75.
The community room will
be available to local organiza-
tions as well as to city depart-
ments, and it will offer new
audio-visual technology, flex-
ible seating arrangements
and easy access from 1-75.
Housed in a storm-hard-
ened building that meets the
latest building standards, the
facility also will serve as the
city's designated emergency
operations center.
YMCA
Another Venice organiza-
tion, South County Family
YMCA, will use a $194,700
foundation grant to ensure
continued quality at the three
preschools it operates and to
help it create a model pre-
school to serve as an example
for other childcare providers
in the region.
The grant funds will enable
the YMCA to support a new
director/principal over three
years who will oversee the
YMCA's three preschools
serving Venice area families

Because of incorrect information from the city of Venice, a budget story in the Aug. 22 edi-
tion listed Venice's city receptionist/switchboard operator salary at $42,000. The correct

Reading teacher shortage still unresolved


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER

Issues about reading teac-
hers being negotiated bet-
ween Sarasota Classified
/Teachers Associdtion and the
Sarasota County School
Board are no closer to being
resolved.
Placement of reading tea-
chers was on the bargaining
table at last week's session.
Negotiators discussed pla-
cement by seniority for teach-
ers who become reading
endorsed through the district.
However, they didn't discuss
how they would deal with a
teacher who has seniority but
declines placement in an
open position.
SC/TA Executive director
Barry Dubin said sometimes
teachers don't want to move
to open positions because of
travel.
He asked district represen-
tatives if those teachers sh-
ould be penalized by moving
to the bottom of the list
because their placement
came up to a location outside
where they agreed to work.
Sarasota County School
Board Human Resources
Director Roy Sprinkle and
Chief Operating Officer Scott
Lempe suggested having a

separate procedure for plac-
ing newly endorsed reading
teachers, which has yet to be
determined.
A new problem
The subject of rewarding
reading teachers who are
already endorsed and work-
ing in the district was a new
topic brought up by the
SC/TA.
"They're on the other side
of the line," Lempe said.
However, Dubin said
teachers who had completed
the. eqdorsement process and
didn't get the $5,000 incentive
would be upset.
-He also said that not pay-
ing a bonus to teachers cur-
rently going through the
process would be unfair.
According to district repre-
sentatives, that's riot the point
of the incentive.
"The goal is to get more
people in," Sprinkle said. "Id
rather give the $5,000 to a
recent graduate to get him to
come to Sarasota County."
SCSB attorney Art Hardy


said it's worth seeing how
many current reading en-
dorsed teachers would be
affected by plan to offer a
$5,000 incentive before mak-
ing a decision.
Dubin also raised the
problem of teachers currently
in the endorsement process
dropping out or delaying in
order to start again and get
the bonus.
"That would be an unethi-
cal game to play," Lempe said.
The two sides were sched-
uled to resume negotiations
Wednesday but the session
was postponed.

The passing of Pelican Pete's Playland


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

It was the end of an era.
Pelican Pete's Playground,
known locally for years as an
amusement mecca to area
residents before it closed in
2005, succumbed to a wreck-
ing crewWednesday.
Just mention Pelican Pete's
to anyone especially kids
at Lemon Bay High School -
and you'll get a flood of mem-
ories.
Elizabeth David, 18, had
fond reminiscences of the
place and found its demise
"kind of upsetting."
"We used to go there when
I was younger," David said.
"My family used to go there
and my friends and I would
go, just to have something to


do. It was one of the few
things you could do here."
David enjoyed the putt-
putt golf course and remem-
bered the racetrack and a bat-


"It gave us something to

do."

Suhail Jabir,

L School student



ting cage, where kids would
congregate.
She also recalled that
Pelican Pete's would award
tickets to kids who did well in
school. Those tickets could be
redeemed for extended play
in the park's arcade.


"If you got straight 'A's you
got a lot of tickets," David
said. "You'd bring your report
card and get to play in the
arcade. My sister was really
upset when they closed. She
had saved up a lot of her tick-
ets and never got to use
them."
Suhail Jabir, 15, and Ariel
Hernandez, 14, had contrast-
ing feelings about the demise
of Pelican Pete's.
"I remember the bumper
cars and batting cages," Jabir
said. "And the minigolf
course. It gave us something
to do. I think it's not a good
idea at all that it's gone. We
basically have nothing now.
About all that's left to us is the
community pool. I'm going to
miss Pelican Pete's."
Hernandez felt otherwise.


"I went there once, when I
first moved down here," she
said. "I remember the really
long train ride. It drove you
around the whole .entire
place. It was really long and
boring."
David lamented the lack of
quality places in Englewood
where kids can go for a good
time.
"Other than the beach and
Pelican Pete's, there wasn't
much," she said. 'And now
Pelican Pete's is gone. It's sad."
Paperwork at the site re-
vealed the owner of the prop-
erty as an entity called MMS
LLC. The contact for MMS,
Bob Granicz, could not be
reached for comment Wed-
nesday.

Ordinance could head off 'dead zone' in gulf


Local environmentalist wants Congress to con-
sider federal policy based on proposed Sarasota
County ordinance to reduce residential fertilizer
run-off into local waters and the gulf.


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

The disclosure earlier this
summer that a "dead zone"
covering 8,500 square miles
- the size of New Jersey in
the Gulf of Mexico near the
mouth of the Mississippi
River reinforced the fears of


Southwest Florida environ-
mentalists. They wonder how
soon it will happen here.
A dead zone cannot sup-
port sea life because it is so
deprived of oxygen.
An increase of chemicals
from municipal wastes, fertil-
izer and other sources was
blamed by the National Oce-


anic and Atmospheric Ad-
ministration for the develop-
ment in the northern gulf.
David Whithall, a coastal
ecologist with the agency,
said that the growth of the
area of oxygen depletion (the
dead zone) matched the
increasing run-off of chemi-
cal wastes.
The appearance of thou-
sands of lifeless miles off the
coasts of Louisiana and
Mississippi hasn't been dupli-
cated off Florida yet. But dead
zones have been reported by
fishing boat captains in the


area for several years, accord-
ing to the Healthy Gulf Co-
alition and the Sierra Club,
both of which have local of-
fices. They have been moni-
toring gulf waters from
Manasota Key north to Sara-
sota Bay.
Small changes
NOAA suggests that run-
off of nitrogen and phospho-
rus from the Mississippi River
has increased because of the
greater use of fertilizers to
grow corn for ethanol.
Dead zones grow in the


summer, according to NOAA.
The combination of higher
temperatures and high nutri-
ent loads from springtime
run-off enhance the growth
of nitrate loading into the
gulf, according to the Louis-
iana University Marine Con-
sortium.
A widespread bloom of red
tide algae in 2005 killed mil-
lions of fish from Sarasota to
Pasco counties.
An ordinance controlling
the types and quantities of
fertilizer that residents can
put on their lawns is expected


to be endorsed in September
by the Sarasota County Board
of Commissioners.
Stuart DeCew, who heads
the Sierra Club's Red Tide
Campaign, has called for
Congress to consider a feder-
al policy on controls of agri-
cultural run-off.
"Congress could look to the
county commission proposal
to reduce residential fertilizer
run-off into local waters and
the gulf," he said. "Small policy
changes have the potential to
make a major difference in the
health of the gulf."


POLICY trom Page 1 A


access to football fields,
where the district has spent
millions of dollars, Kovach
told her that was not under
consideration. He added, as
an example, "I've never said
that we should open the gym-
nasium at Riverview (High
School) for kids to play 24-7."


Brown suggested putting
up signs at the tennis and
basketball courts saying the
public would be held liable
for damages.
Catching the offenders
would be the problem, Ko-
vach pointed out.
Referring to the $315,000


maintenance figure, Todd
said, "Sometimes you have to.
begin to put things in per-
spective."
That was not a lot of
money, she said, in the con-
text of a three-quarters of a
billion-dollar budget.
Todd also suggested the


board and staff look at mak-
ing playgrounds and tennis
and basketball courts more
accessible to the public
whenever renovations were
taking place at schools or new
schools were being built, by
using fencing, for example to
separate those areas from


other school facilities.
When Lempe asked wheth-
er the board wanted staff to
put together a proposed poli-
cy, the board members nod-
ded their approval. However,
Zucker said she didn't think
the board members were
clear yet on what the policy


should say.
"I'm sure we're not rein-
venting the wheel," Kovach
said.
He asked Lempe to exam-
ine policies other school dis-
tricts had put into practice
before writing one for the
board to consider.


TOPICS from Page 1 A


but he has concerns about
pedestrian traffic and the
willingness of drivers to yield.
"People (find it hard to)
stop for stop signs and traffic
lights. Are drivers coming off
1-75 going to be willing to stop
for a bicyclist or pedestrian in
a busy roundabout?" he
asked.
Also up for discussion:
extensions of Knights Trail
Road and Pinebrook Road; 1-
cent sales tax timing and allo-
cations; the county's recom-
mitment to meet contractual
obligations to the city over
emergency medical services;


relocation of Fire Station No.
2; concerns over dual taxa-
tion; and duplication of sher-
iff's office services.
Drought concerns are
also high on the list, includ-
ing wastewater demands
and responsibilities under
the JPA, a regional partner-
ship for a joint water treat-
ment facility.
Black wants to discuss the
county's plans to beautify the
Pinebrook extension from
city limits to Center Road,
and get an update on its
thinking about visual buffers
(walls versus landscaping)


along roads like Edmondson.
Parks are a concern, too.
Black would like an update on
the county's proposal to buy
the Cemex site adjoining the
Venice Train Depot, the status
of Rails-to-Trails park, and
ongoing maintenance of
parks since county staff have
indicated a "high probability
that they may need to reduce
services under the parks in-
terlocal agreement," ac-
cording to Black.
Internal
communications
What's not on the list is the


Bella Citta development.
That's up for discussion by
the board of county commis-
sioners Monday.
They'll have an opportuni-
ty to decide whether or not to
proceed with mediation over
the rezoning petition.
The governing bodies have
thus far disagreed on the
compatibility of Bella Citta's
requested zoning amend-
ment with surrounding rural
residences.
City and county -staff
issued a joint memo on Aug.
21 to look internally to fix the
problem.


Both city and count plan-
ners committed to share their
concerns in the future prior
to either Venice City Council
or BOCC taking action on a
petition, especially regarding
compatibility issues.
For its part, the city
promised to amend its pub-
licly accessible master list of
zoning and planning peti-
tions to include whether each
is covered under the IPA and
by which section.
The county, which doesn't
have an online master plan-
ning .list, promised to come
up with one, according to the


memo.
Should county staff have
concerns during the review of
a city zoning petition, they
would have an opportunity
early on in the process to
share their view, and vice
versa.
If those concerns aren't
adequately addressed, either
could attend the relevant
public hearing and voice their
concerns like the rest of the
public, according to the
memo.

OUR VIEW



Mandating RE. in schools is the right move


Those of us who grew up in Florida can
remember the days in the school yard
playing softball or basketball or run-
ning relays. It was called physical education
and it was required.
Over the years PE. time in elementary
schools was gradually scaled back or eliminat-
ed all together to allow more academics to be
added to an already busy day of studying.
More focus on school work is good, but
our children are paying the price for a lack of
physical activity at school and at home.
Blame TV; blame video games; blame par-
ents; blame the pace of life today, even for
our children the result is still a rise in
childhood obesity.
Well, PE. is back.
And it's now mandatory 150 minutes
per week.


With the state Legislature's recent deci-
sion to make PE. mandatory, many children
who were getting no exercise at all will at
least be involved in some physical activity at
school. This new law took effect when the
new school year began.
We applaud this long-overdue move by the
state and Gov. Charlie Crist, coming as it does
after more and more young people have
become overweight in Florida and the nation.
According to an AP story by Brent Kalle-
stad, the percentage of high school students
enrolled in daily physical education classes
dropped from 42 percent to 28 percent from
1991 to 2003. The number of overweight
children between the ages of 6 and 11
quadrupled between 1965 and 2004, while
the number between the ages of 12 and 19
nearly quadrupled.


It's no wonder, with so many children be-
coming "coach potatoes" surrounded by
portable electronic gadgets that relieve them
of the necessity of getting up for anything
less than a potty break. After-school time
* often means video games or cartoons in-
stead of playing outside- and a few snacks
while waiting for dinner can be hard for
youngsters to resist.
According to Craig Buschner, a kiniesiolo-
gy professor at California State University,
Chico, and president of the National Asso-
ciation of Sports and Physical Education,
less than 10 percent of elementary schools
in the country are meeting the standard of
150 minutes a week. Florida schools will,
however, have some flexibility on how to
schedule the 150 minutes.
Celebrities are also getting into the act, as


Miami Heat NBA star Shaq O'Neal has creat-
ed his "Shaq's Big Challenge" TV reality show,
with personal trainers, dietitians and doc-
tors helping a half-dozen overweight South
Florida middle-schoolers lose weight.
While most Florida students will not have
the advantage of personal trainers, they will
be required, and the key word here is
"required" to participate in 150 minutes of
RE. per week.
This can only be seen as a very positive
step by the state to work toward having few-
er overweight and obese Florida children.
We just hope the state is serious about
helping our children get fit. Those 150 min-
utes need to be spent in RE. getting exercise.
Classifying other activities as EE., or taking
EE. time for other school matters, however
worthwhile, isn't going to do the-job.


Toys leaded



and unleaded


MARY KAY RUPPEL
COLUMNIST


Toys are supposed to be
safe fun for children.
As of this date, 9 million
Mattel toys made in China
have been recalled. That's just
two weeks after Fisher-Price
recalled 1.5 million infant toys
because of possible lead-
paint hazards.
This is downright scary
and makes one wonder about
the efficiency of the Con-
sumer Product Safety Com-
mission. Hopefully, this hor-
rendous situation will be cor-
rected pronto.
A "toy" I have long consid-
ered to be one of the most
dangerous on the market is
the motorcycle. My dislike for
this death-and-destruction
machine goes back to when
my son was 15 and his dad,
who was the one who really
wanted one, waited until I
went out of town to purchase
it.
After repeatedly demon-
strating a total lack of respon-
sibility on this toy, the license
was not renewed and he was
forbidden to take it out of the
garage. Naturally, the tempta-
tion was -too much and one
day he quietly walked it out.
The next I knew, a friend of
his was at the door shouting
that Jeffrey had been in an
accident. It sounded as if he
had attempted an Evel
Knievel over a passing car and
didn't clear it too well.
Oh yes, he also had a girl
.riding with him and she was
not wearing a helmet. He had
a broken leg and arm and she
had a minor (thank God)
head injury.
I was with him in the emer-
gency room and the police-
man chastised me for letting
such a young boy have a
motorcycle. He ended up
with multiple citations and
the judge called him a "one-
man crime ring."
Incredibly, many motorcy-
clists refuse to wear helmets
because they think they're
uncomfortable. Would they
find a stretcher more com-
fortable?
I have ridden on the back
of my cousin's Harley and he
couldn't be more cautious;


however, I still I find it totally
nerve-wracking. It's hot,
windy and noisy.
You know the old joke that
you can tell a happy motorcy-
clist by the number of bugs
on his teeth? Well, include me
out.
Put on your brakes, be-
cause I'm doing a complete
change of subject here.
My new toy has four legs,
pointed little ears, stands
about 12 inches and weighs
18 pounds. Did you guess? It's
a puppy well, actually he'll
be a year old on Aug. 30, but
dogs are considered pups
until 18 months. Believe you
me, dhis is a puppy!
I have purchased more
toys for him than you can
imagine, but naturally, he
prefers to chew on a good ori-
ental rug in the foyer and a
furry rug in the den.
He prefers to jump on me
when least expected. He
prefers to chase my two birds
around the house (remember
them: Debby and Duffy, the
"flying poopendas"). They are
really getting a charge out of
his attempts to fly, and some-
times deliberately dive bomb
him just in case things aren't
crazy enough around here.
The beautiful and amazing
part is that he is housebroken.
He's also terribly sweet and
adorable, so I named him
Maney after my dear, late
father.
Yesterday, I took Maney to
a great dog park here in Ven-
ice. There were lots of shade
trees and running room and
benches for us tired owners. It
even had water troughs and
containers for "trash."
He had a great time, and al-
though he has special friend,
a toy poodle named Molly, the
little scamp romped a bit with
Gretchen, a feisty little Mal-
'tese. Her parents brought her
all the way from Fort Myers
and were planning to take her
out to dinner at one of our
canine friendly caf6s on Ven-
ice Avenue.
She was very dainty and
the type that people would
ooh and ah over with her long
platinum hair and a pouf held
with a sequined barrette.
My doggie may look like
Toto from the "Wizard of Oz,"
but believe me when I tell you
he could brighten a restau-
rant just by leaving it.
Well, that's enough about
me, so let's talk about you.
What do you think about me?

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS



Looking for a way to help?


Editor:
On behalf of the Community Assistance Ministry of Trinity
Presbyterian Church in South Venice, I would like to express
our sincere gratitude to those who support our efforts to assist
hundreds of households in Venice, Laurel and Nokomis.
The ministry is presently supported by food donations and
Funds received from Trinity Church and the community.
In particular, I would like to acknowledge grants and dona-
tions received from the Plantation Community Foundation,
CROPWalk 2005 and 2006, the South Venice Yacht Club,
Japanese Gardens, Presbyterian Women, Boy Scouts and Girl
Scouts, the Java Cafe and SimplyYum-Yum Bakery. The invalu-
able support of these organizations has helped us keep our
doors open.
Volunteers from the Trinity congregation and the communi-
ty operate a food pantry between noon and 3 p.m. each
Tuesday and Thursday. We also provide limited emergency
financial assistance on Thursdays to those who are in crisis sit-
uations. To find out if funds are available, call 493-6384 and lis-
ten to the recorded message.
Most residents of the Venice area probably do not realize the
needs in our community are staggering and, unfortunately,
growing. However, our resources to help are extremely low.
We urge compassionate individuals, churches and commu-
nity organizations to support us with food drives and mone-
tary contributions.
Donations may be made to Trinity Presbyterian Church,
designated for the Community Assistance Ministry, 4365 State
Road 776, Venice 34293. Representatives of groups who would
be interested in touring our pantry may contact me at the
church at 493-0018.

Hydrogen is the key
Editor:
Hydrogen is a fuel that will
be available for years. It seems
like this would be the best
place to start, in the cities.
It doesn't have pollution. If
cities would start using
hydrogen-powered vehicles,
they could refuel in central
locations. This could get these
vehicles into production in
high-pollution areas and


eventually in for the general
public.
Add 5 cents to the gas tax
and only use it to pay for the
development of hydrogen-
powered vehicles. Let's get
involved with Ford, GM and
Chrysler and get going.
This country needs to
wake up and start using alter-
native fuels. require solar hot
water on all new homes and
give credit for the conversion


of all existing homes.

With tax cuts
like these ...
Editor:
I just received my Sarasota
and Charlotte TRIM notices
what a joke. My Sarasota
taxes are $4,000 and home-
stead in Charlotte $9,500.
Where do I get the money?
Why doesn't Florida do
something? Who would want
to move here and increase
their cost of living? Lower the
taxes and people will stop
leaving and new will come.
Florida taxes haven't gone
down and the super exemp-
tion is a clever way to get out
of capping value increases on
properties.
There must be another
source of revenue for this
state, one that is fair to all
people, not just homesteaded
people who haven't moved.
How do other states afford to
operate? Is Florida too stub-
born to take models from
other states?
If homesteaders don't
move, nonhomesteaders sell
and leave, land owners de-
fault and fewer new people
move here, then Florida will
have reduced revenue any-
way. Then what? Their entire
approach is counterproduc-
tive.
Sarasota and Charlotte
have to make cuts to accom-
modate the lower income
from property taxes? What


decrease?Why don't they start
with their own salaries?
Other salaries in Florida
stink. Average people cannot
afford to work and live here.
The only Floridians who have
salaries that can sustain the
expenses here are the people
who make the rules.
I can't leave because I can't
sell. My life's dream of living
here is shattered. My life's sav-
ings are gone.
Florida has ruined me and
I'm stuck. Tell that to the peo-
ple thinking about moving to
Florida.
Ditto for insurance!

Good kids are out there
Editor:
We hear and see lots of
negative about' kids here, so
here is some good stuff.
I work at a local store the
kids (about 10) from the skate
park frequent almost daily.
They are respectful to the
store, the employees and
other customers in the store.
They also put their extra
change into our literacy fund
jar.
I also was invited to the the
"open mike" night at Living
Waters Lutheran, where I met
and enjoyed the Christian
music of six kids from about
14-17. They were wonderful,
talented kids playing a num-
ber of instruments and hav-

Hair today, gone tomorrow?


Much a-do. Hair styles can be dangerous to the wearer and
others, especially when driving. A woman talking on TV recent-
ly pushed her hair from her face 18 times in less than four min-
utes. If driving and her hair impairs her vision or she removes
her hand from the wheel that often or more, that is serious. I
suppose if she were'pulled over and approached by an officer,
she would have an excuse, like, "Oh, the wind blew my hair
when I put the window down." The police car cameras are
good for a lot of things, but would not likely detect a driver's
hairdo. But I wonder how many accidents and deaths have
been caused by outrageous hair styles. Any suggestions on how
to handle this problem? I think she should be arrested. What do
you think? By the way, I'm a lady, but with a nondangerous

"The best thing about our
new store in Venice is you
don't even have to get out of
your car to get your coffee,"
said Chris Cindrick, Star-
bucks regional marketing
specialist. "The drive-through
is most convenient for those
on the go."
He was commenting on
the opening of the new Star-
bucks Coffee Shop, on the
southwest comer of Center
Road and U.S. 41 Bypass,
Venice.
The 1,923-square-foot lo-


cation is one of Starbucks'

Friday evening stroll on Burgundy Square


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

"The face of Venice is
changing, and I believe we
will not recognize the island
of Venice in five years with all
the positive growth that is
happening as more national
and regional businesses
come," said Peter Richard.
"People are calling me from
all over with different busi-
ness models that will be very
successful here in Venice."
Depending on what retail-
ers want to do, Richard,
owner of retail properties on
both Miami and Venice
avenues, is convinced both
are good locations.


"We have a lot of great peo-
ple who have been here'for
many years and we're full," he
said.
Originally from Southern
Maine, in 1994 Richard was
looking to settle in Florida
when a friend recommended
Venice.
Up north he was in the real
estate residential business.
Seven years ago he changed.
"Nobody wanted it, so I
bought property on Bur-
gundy Square. Commercial
real estate, contrary to the rest
of the market, is doing very
well according to Richard.
, Recently he acquired 229
W. Miami Ave. for $1.2 million
from the Gloria Mogford


Trust, Edmund Mogford Trust
and Darrell Pruitt. These five
retail units on the western
end of Burgundy Square
between The Breezeway and
the Tea Cup completes his
ownership of Burgundy
Square.
This acquisition, includes a
historic building, originally a
hotel built in 1925. His inten-
tion is to continue renovating
the interior and exterior of
the buildings.
Miami Avenue used to be
mostly antique shops, but is
changing, said Richard. Just
opened is a European tailor,
next to a planned beauty
salon, a complete spa fdr men
and women, a wine and cof-


fee shop and an Italian wine,
coffee and deli bar.
Burgundy Square has 24
retail stores and was recently
featured in a national maga-
zine. Richard believes it is
very important the tenants
are successful, as that is the
major reason they stay so
long. Buttercup Cottage has
been there for 16 years and St.
Mark's Divihe Consign' for
more than 20 years.
Summer is the time for
retailers to prepare for what
Richard believes is going to be
a super season.
Currently he is coordinat-
ing a catered grand opening
in the' Breezeway for Novem-
ber with a band, scheduled


on a Friday evening. Add-
itionally, for the Miami Ave-
nue Friday stroll he is looking
for small bands to play in the
evenings.
Events will incorporate all
the retail space on Miami
Avenue, one being the popu-
lar flea market every third
Saturday of the month in the
Breezeway at Burgundy
Square, ':. 1 .-.7
Anticipating this year will
be one of the biggest retail
seasons ever on the island of
Venice, Richard is paving the
access to additional customer
parking from Nassau Street to
the rear of Burgundy Square
stores, enabling visitors to
park and walk through the


Breezeway.
"We now have 100 parking
spaces plus what the city pro-
vides next to Althea's easy
parking on or off the street,"
said Richard.
The recent introduction of
Main Street Ambassadors,
Richard believes, is a great
asset for Venice, Miami and
Tampa avenues.
"With baby boonidrs' r'ert-
ing from corporations, more
and more are so young they
want to open retail business-
es and they have some fantas-
tic ideas," he said. "My inten-
tions are to develop it as a
popular destination spot for a
variety different retail shops."

Subway to sink big bucks in Venice


Now open


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


Subway has big plans for
Venice.
This is according to details
provided by Kevin Hubbart,
director of development for
Subway Tampa Bay at the
recent International Council
of Shopping Centers Florida
Convention.
Those plans include a
completely new store and
renovating two existing loca-
tions.
Sandwiched
Subway has contracted to
have a new store in the Villa
Venezia Plaza on East Venice
Avenue near Auburn Road.
"We take possession the
first of September, start our
build-out as soon as the per-
mits are issued and usually


open in 50-90 days," said
Hubbart.
This location will have the
company's new Tuscany
decor with larger tiles and
more subdued wallpaper. It
will the still have the Subway
design in it, but less bold, a lit-
tle more subdued and up-
scale.
Two stores are to be
remodeled. The first will be
the store in Bird Bay Plaza,
U.S. 41 Bypass. The plan is to
start the remodel in the next
three months.
It is likely the store will be
taken down to the bare walls
to maximize the facility.
Interior decoration will be to
the current Tuscany stan-
dards with earth tones, light
browns, beiges and greens,
making it look like a brand-
new store.
Then all-new equipment,


freezers, refrigerators and
tables will be brought in, with
new sandwich lines.
"We usually close the store
for two months to do a com-
plete renovation," said Hubb-
art.
The second Subway loca-
tion to upgrade to the new
Tuscany design is in South
Venice. The franchisee has
not finalized plans at this
stage, according toHubbart,
who expects designs to be
prepared for work to start in
the near future.
Subway is looking to add
4,000 stores worldwide and
more than 2,000 stores
nationwide.
In the Sarasota, Manatee
and Tampa Bay region, Hubb-
art anticipates adding 20 to 50
stores annually.

Local homeowners mixed about real estate market


FROM ATTORNEYS'
TITLE INSURANCE FUND

The annual Fund Home-
ownership survey found that
75 percent of Sarasota home-
owners believe the value of
the homes in their communi-
ty will continue to rise or
remain the same during the
next 12 months, despite
recent real estate sales data
that show home values wan-
ing across the state.
The annual survey, com-
missioned by Florida-based
Attorneys' Title Insurance


Fund's Consumer Education
Campaign, polled more than
1,400 homeowners through-
out the state between June
11-25: Detailed results can be
found at sarasotarec.com.
Three out of four Sarasota
respondents believe now is a
good time to buy Florida real
estate (75 percent), but just 12
percent said they actually
intend to buy a home in the
next two years.
Not surprisingly, the vast
majority (92 percent) of
Sarasota homeowners agree
that now is a bad time to sell


and are less optimistic about
.their ability to sell their
homes today.
The survey also indicates
that a majority of the Sarasota
respondents believe rising
property insurance costs (80
percent) and rising property
taxes (71 percent) are the
biggest obstacles to purchas-
ing a home.
When asked their biggest
real estate concern in Florida,
Sarasota homeowners were
least concerned about rising
mortgage interest rates and
being a victim of real estate


fraud (with no respondents
from either of these two areas
citing them as concerns).
Rising property insurance
costs was listed as top con-
cern for Sarasota homeown-
ers (42 percent), ahead of ris-
ing property taxes (26 per-
cent) and being hit by a hurri-
cane (15 percent).
Summary
Overall, Sarasota home-
owners are closely divided
between those who expect
home values in their commu-
nity to increase (40 percent)


and those who expect them
to decrease (35 percent) dur-
ing the next 12 months; 25
percent think it will remain
the same.
The vast majority of Sar-
asota homeowners (75 per-
cent) are confident in the real'
estate market and believe that
now is a good time to buy.
Nearly three out of four (74
percent) Florida homeowners
with an income of $100,000-
plus believe that now is a
good time to buy a house or
condo; this is a significant
increase compared to 2006


survey results (48 percent).
The vast majority of Sara-
sota homeowners (92 per-
cent) believe that now is a bad
time to sell a house or condo.
Less Optimistic
Homeowners in Sarasota
are less optimistic than
homeowners throughout the
state when it comes to selling
a house or condo, only 6 per-
cent indicating that now is a
good time. Eleven percent of
Florida homeowners think
that now is a good time to sell
a house.

Firefight ends in fight, arrest


BY CHRISTY ARNOLD
ENGLEWOOD EDITOR


Chari Smith had a bad day
Wednesday.
Her house caught fire.
She hit a cop.
She pushed him.
She also flicked his hat off
his head.
Then she went to jail.
Her dog's OK, though.
Englewood firefighters went
to Overbrook Gardens shortly
after 2 p.m. Wednesday after a
neighbor saw smoke coming
from Smith's Neptune Drive
house.
The fire, caused by a cof-
feepot or similar appliance
left on, was contained mostly
to the kitchen area, said
Englewood Assistant Fire
Chief Kirk Gaskell.
"There's a lot of smoke


damage throughout the
house," Gaskell said.
As firefighters were clean-
ing up, Smith arrived at her
house. She wanted to go
inside through her front door,
which was partially coated in
black soot.
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Deputy Bill Kuchar didn't
want Smith inside the house,
which wasn't safe with all the
broken glass, insulation and,
debris.
Smith didn't seem to care.
Suddenly, her hands app-
eared on Kuchar's green uni-
form. She started pushing.
She started slapping.
Round two
Firefighters ran toward
Kuchar, who took Smith to
the ground. Another deputy
restrained her as fire officials


tried to calm her down.
She repeated over and over
again: "Let me in my house"
and "Get your hands off me."
She eventually calmed
down, or so it seemed. The
deputy let go of her arms.
She stood there with
Kuchar and others.
All seemed well.
With a flick of Smith's
hand, Kuchar's hat suddenly
flip-flopped off his head and
onto the ground. Then, Smith
went after him again.
Hands, arms and legs
flailed.
Deputies grabbed her
arms again, handcuffed her
and put in a patrol car.
"That was embarrassing to
see," Gaskell said. "People
react differently to seeing
their house in shambles,
destroyed."


Just minutes after seeing
her smoked-out home, Smith
was arrested on a felony
charge of battery on a law
enforcement officer. She was
released on $1,500 bond.
Kuchar broke his eyeglass-
es during the scuffles. He also
tore his pants and scraped his
elbow. No one else was
injured in either fight or in
fighting the fires.
Smith's German shepherd,
which officials had to take
control of, was not injured,
Gaskell said. She also may
have had cats, but they
weren't in the house, Gaskell
said.
The American Red Cross
planned to contact Smith's
family to see if they needed
any financial help.

phine) without a prescrip-
tion.
According to a Venice
Police Department release,
on Aug. 20, at about 3:32 p.m.,
Venice Police Department
patrol units responded to the
West Venice -Avenue address
regarding a disturbance in
progress. Officers found three
males, two of whom were
grappling on the floor, while
the third male. attempted to
stop the fight.
* The males said they were
just wrestling and it got out of
hand and neither wished to
pursue charges against the
other.
Souza asked if he could
smoke. When an officer was
handing him, the pack ,he
identified as his, the officer
found what appeared to be a
morphine pill inside; it was
later confirmed by a Wal-
greens pharmacist as mor-
phine.
Souza said he got the pill
from a friend at work, who
gave it to him because he
claimed to have an injured
shoulder.


Wrong tag, wrong place
An improper license plate
got a Nokomis man arrested
on drug charges.
Jason E. Cobb, 32, 200

with possession of metham-
phetamine, possession of
paraphernalia and driving

license.

Police Department press
release, on Aug. 20 the Venice
Police Patrol Division con-
ducted a traffic stop on a
vehicle in the 400 block of
Albee Farm Road.
The vehicle in question
displayed a tag not assigned
by the state. As the VPD offi-
cer was attempting to stop
the vehicle it made several
erratic movements in an
attempt to get out of sight of
the marked patrol unit.
Investigation revealed that
the driver, Cobb, threw a bag
containing :4.38 grams p:of
methamphetamine and,-, a.
digital scale out of the vehicle.
Cobb told the officer he
was aware of his driver
license being suspended and
admitted to ownership of the
methamphetamine and par-
aphernalia.

Taekwondo champion


fights for dreams JTt


BY DEBBIE KIEWIET
SPORTS EDITOR

Eight-year-old Sara Frajer-
man was one of several stu-
dents from Shuman's ATA
Black Belt Academy in Venice
to win medals and champi-
onships this summer at the
ATA Taekwondo World Cham-
pionships in Little Rock, Ark.
Head instructor at Shuman's
Academy is Joseph Mirville.
A third-grader at Island
Village Montessori School,
Sara won the title of 2007
State Champion in weapons.
Since winning the tide, she
has also earned her black belt.
. Not bad for an 8-year-old,
especially an 8-year-old who
happens to have a rare dis-
ease. Because of the disease,
known as Common Variable
Immune Deficiency, her im-
mune system doesn't work
and her body can't fight off
germs.
To complicate matters,
Sara can eat only fruits and
vegetables because a rare
component of the disease
doesn't allow her body to tol-
erate protein.
Second choice
"She's a tough cookie," her
mother, Karen Frajerman,
said this week. "She's such an
inspiration for other people
- 'I have this going on with
me, but I'm still going to go
for my dream.'"
Since last October, Sara has
traveled to Las Vegas, St. Louis
and Chicago as well as to
tournaments in Indiana,
Georgia and Florida, earning
points toward a state tide.
Accompanying her on most
of the trips was her father,
also a taekwondo student at
Shuman's Academy.
"She loves to compete,"
Karen said.
Taekwondo was a second
choice for Sara. "We wouldn't
let her wrestle," her mother
said.
Since Sara started taking


FROM THE
VENICE VIKINGS


The Venice Vikings Pop
Warner football teams had
their annual jamborees last
weekend, Aug. 18-19. The
jamborees provide an oppor-
tunity for the kids to put into
practice all that they've work-
ed so hard on in practice for
the past several weeks.
The jamboree is an exhibi-
tion format with each Viking
team playing a half against two
different opponents with a
running clock. It's a great
opportunity for the kids to get a
feel for he coaches' expecta-
tions and the excitement of the
game prior to opening day.
The Vikings open the regu-
lar season at home against
Labelle this Saturday, Aug. 25.
The Tiny Mites begin the day
at 8 a.m. with the Midgets
playing the last game of the
day at 7 p.m. Games are
played throughout the day
with a new game starting ap-
proximately every two hours.
This Saturday is Senior Day
at Letson Stadium atWellfield
Park with senior citizens
admitted for free. Players and
cheerleaders at every level are
hoping for strong community
support so they can look up
and see full stands at their
home games.
Recap of last weekend's
jamboree:
Tiny Mites
The Danes played the
North Port Mustangs and
Sarasota Sun Devils. Javion


taekwondo 3 1/2 years ago,
her whole family has become
involved: dad John, mom
Karen and two sisters, Casey,
age 7, and Megan, 4.
"Sara was the first one," her
mother said. "Then her sister
'Casey started. Their father
started because he wanted to
help them. I joined because
everybody else was doing it.
Now Megan does it, too."
Not foolproof
Sara shares something else
with her two sisters. Casey
and Megan have the same
immune deficiency disease
and the same protein compo-
nent that Sara has.
All three girls get an infu-
sion of blood product once a
week. The product, which
Karen described as "antibod-
ies that have been pulled out



i


Heligh, scored two touch-
downs on exciting runs with
the offensive line doing a
great job. Zek Sigmon and
Will Coons also had good
offensive days. The defense
played well anchored by the
play of S. Sleight, Tim Desoto,
Joe Beevelacqua and Heligh.
Mighty Mites
The Kings played the Sara-
sota Sun Devils and Port
Charlotte Bandits. The Kings
worked hard as a team with
good execution of their offen-
sive plays. The passing game
was on with three pass com-
pletions. The defense was
stingy with several backfield
tackles and well-disciplined
containment. The Kings are
looking forward to opening
day and achieving great ac-
complishments as a team.
Junior Pee Wee
The Knights played the
Sarasota Sun Devils and Port
Charlotte Bandits. The Knights
played the Bandits to a tie and
were on the losing end to the
Sun Devils, 7-0. The offense
played well with Cody Han-
.nah completing two passes
for 10 yards to Jarod Hewiitt
and Mason Hupalo. Jay
Paolillo added to the aerial
attack with an eight-yard pass
completion.
Jake Grubbs worked the
ground game with three runs
for 14 yards. The entire de-
fense was outstanding for the
Knights with Bryce Balsinger
and Shane Burns as leading
tacklers.


of donated blood," provides
some protection but isn't
foolproof.
The family is involved in
research on the disease,
which, Karen said, is actually
more common in boys.
"We're a rare occurrence."
Since all three girls have the
disease, researchers are as-
suming it's genetic.
Twenty years ago, there
was no treatment for the dis-
ease. Four years ago, Sara had
to go to the hospital and be
hooked up to an I.V for seven
hours for the treatment. Now
it takes about two hours and
can be done at home.
"We hook them all up at
the same time, make popcorn
and put in a movie," Karen
said.

Junior Midget
The Crusaders played the
Sarasota Sun Devils and Port

saders were on the winning
end of both contests beating
the Sun Devils 7-0 and the
Bandits 12-0. The offensive
line opened large holes for
the backs as Jack Jesky,
Frankie Gionfriddo and Mi-
chael Iorio ran well .all day.
Jesky had a 16-yard TD run,
and Gionfriddo added an
exciting 53-yard TD run. Zach
Flerlage completed an 18-
yard TD pass to Gionfriddo to
wrap up the scoring. The
entire defense was tough,
shutting out both opponents.
Ethan Harper, Dom Fanti,
Davis Martin, Jesky and Iorio
were key defensive contribu-
tors. Flerlage had two inter-
ceptions to cap off the strong
defensive effort.

preserve the standoff. The
offense was led by. Joe

Anyone is Cardinal Mooney. Anywhere is Powell-Davis Stadium. Anytime is tonight, 7:30. Fans of
Venice High School football will get a preview of the 2007 season as Venice hosts Cardinal Mooney
for tonight's Preseason Classic. The Indians run through a play under the critical eye of Coach
John Peacock, above, who is expecting a tough game tonight. "We are going to have to play a
good game both offensively and defensively," he said. "Mooney's offense is very explosive. They
have a talented running back in Steve Irulie.Their defense has a lot of experience, with several key
defenders returning. Since spring we have been able to implement our entire playbook, and we've
had quite a few players mature and solidify their positions in this team. If we are able to play
sound football on both sides of the ball without turnovers, we should be able to keep it close." For
more on the Indians, see the Game On fall sports insert in this issue of the Gondolier Sun.





Lady Ind ians 2-for-2



in preseason classic


BY DEBBIE KIEWIET
SPORTS EDITOR

"The Venice-Fort Myers
rivalry on the volleyball
couit goes back a long way,",
Coach Brian Wheatley said
Thursday night after the
Lady Indians' win in three
in the final match of the
Preseasdfi Classic.
"We played a quality
opponent. The last four
years, either Fort Myers or
Venice has played for the
state championship."
Venice built an early 4-1
lead in the first game.
Fort Myers tied the score
at 6-6, but the Lady Indians
pulled away and took a 25-
17 win.
The Lady Indians again
jumped out in front in the
second game, but Fort
Myers came back to gain a
10-9 lead.
Venice was equal to the
challenge, battling back to
tie the score 12-12 on their
way to another 25-17 win.
Fort Myers showed they
weren't quite ready for the
long trip home just yet.
The visitors got on the
scoreboard first and held
off the Lady Indians almost
halfway through the game.


Venice slowly but surely
nibbled away at the Fort
Myers lead and pulled
ahead 15-14.
Fort Myers kept it close,
but the Lady Indians held
on to defeat Fort Myers 25-
20 and win the match.
"It was competitive
throughout'" Wheatley said.
"It couple go either
way."
Wheatley-'was pleased
with how the team execut-
ed the new offense that was
put in over the summer.
"It's designed to set up
one-oh-one matchups,"
Wheatley said, "because
we're not a very tall team.
It's a lot faster paced.
There's a lot of bobbing and
weaving. We have to play a
really smart game."
Senior setter Nickie Hal-
bert had 29 assists.
Casey Taylor led in kills
with 13.
Kaylee Ream had nine
kills and three blocks.
Julie Howlett had 10 digs,
and Ream and Danielle
Witte each had nine.
The first match Thurs-
day night went to five with
Berkeley Prep beating Bish-
op Verot 25-16 in the first
game.


Bishop Verot got a nar-
row 27-25 win in the sec-
ond. Berkeley dominated in
the third game, 25-12, but
Bishop Verot rallied to win
the fourth, 25-18. Berkeley
finally took the match with
a 17-15 win in the final
game.
Tuesday win
Tuesday night wvas the
first night of the Preseason
Classic. Fort Myers won in
three over Bishop Verot in
the early match Tuesday,
25-21, 25-18, 25-23.
Venice took on Berkeley
Prep of Tampa in the sec-
ond.
The Lady Indians edged
out Berkeley 27-25 in the
first game, held off a late
threat for a 25-23 win in the
second, and controlled the
final to win 25-17.
Next up for the Lady
Indians is a home match
Tuesday, Aug. 28, 7 p.m.
with Lakewood Ranch.

ball team, including team

BY JOHN ROCHE
GUEST WRITER

Is it summer?
During this past season we
have been busy and the park
has gone through many
changes so many that the
time has flown by.
Oscar Scherer State Park is
starting its second 50 years of
providing outstanding out-
door recreation while continu-
ing to preserve a rapidly van-
ishing resource, the scrubby
flatwoods.
Scrubby flatwoods
The scrubby flatwoods,
considered an endangered
habitat, is best represented by
the Florida scrub jay, a species
declared threatened because
of habitat loss.
The Florida scrub jay is
found no where else and is
not like any other scrub jay.
The crestless bird was
declared threatened in 1987,
but continues to decline in
population. About 12 inches
long from head to tail, the bird
is generally blue except for its
light gray forehead and white
throat.
Sharing the flatwoods with
the Florida scrub jays are
gopher frogs, indigo snakes,
gopher tortoises, scrub lupine
and other species you may
never have heard of.
The Florida Park Service is
working to try to keep the
scrub jays from local extinc-
tion.
Its biggest threat to this
beautiful bird and the other
species of the scrub area is the
loss of habitat, the scrubby
flatwoods. Development and
growth are part of the prob-
lem but so is "overgrowth" of
the natural kind.
A lack of naturally occur-
ring fire has allowed public
and privately owned scrub
lands to become dense thick-
ets providing little food and
limited territory suitable for
the birds. These areas are in
need of fire, for the species'
survival and also for human
survival because prescribed
fires help protect everyone
from wildfires.


PHOTOS COURTESY OF JOHN ROCHE
Scrubby flatwoods at Oscar Scherer State Park include pine trees and scrubby undergrowth in need of burning for ecology purposes.


Land management
Consider the positive ben-
efits of active land manage-
ment for your community,
business and personal life.
Land that is more open
allows for light breezes, scenic
vistas of the natural land-
scapes and a healthy variety
of flora and fauna in a natural
balance. All of this brings
back a natural order to the
community, broadening the
diversity of species.
Fire used in the right hands
can protect property by re-
moving dangerous fuel loads
that can allow wildfires to run
rampant. Fire "recycles" the


limited nutrients of the sys-
tem, burning the dead grass-
es, leaves and sticks. This
organic matter is reduced to
inorganic minerals, the basic
building blocks of life.
Finally, by thinning out the
tree cover, more sunlight can
penetrate to the soil, which is
now enriched with nutrients,
to grow young, healthy plants
for food, diversity and beauty.
At Oscar Scherer State
Park, we have fire-dependent
communities with fire-adapt-
ed species. When you see fire
in the proper setting as part of
a resource management pro-
gram, be thankful. .


The public is invited to
visit Oscar Scherer State Park
to see the effects and the re-
sults of controlled fires. Pre-
pare to be surprised.
State park system
Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection's Di-
vision of Recreation and Parks
and its state park system is
one of the largest in the coun-
try with 160 parks spanning
700,000 acres and 100 miles of
sandy white beach. In 2006,
19.5 million people visited the
state's parks.
Florida's state parks were
awarded the National Recre-


ation and Parks Association's
Gold Medal Award, honoring
Florida as the "Nation's Best
State Park Service." A second
for Florida, the gold medal
honors the nation's outstand-
ing park and recreation agen-
cies for excellence in the field
of recreation management.

... The News from Ecineville


BY TED RANK
STAFF ESCRITOR


This is part one of a two-
partseries on the events at the
festival this past Saturday.

Hang on to your sanity,
ladies and gentlemen. It's
time for News from Ecine-
ville.
"Look, people are very
tense and stressed out, and
although this idea seems a
little extreme, I think if will
be fine. We'll be supervising
it from a distance. We just
don't want anyone injured
too badly." Those were the
words of Ecineville Master-
mind of Morale Manny
Michael Mopelkinkaidson-
wickowinpikinkenski.
(Manny shortened his lat
name when he got To
America. To learn his real last


name, send a self-addressed,,
22-inch by 22-inch by 14-
inch deep box to, the Ecine-
ville Sun along with $122.96
for postage and handling.)
Those words were spoken
by Mopelkin... (Attn: Editors:
I'm not, I repeat, not typing
that $%^&* name out every
time).
Those words were spoken
by Manny at a Feb. 12 Ecine-
ville City Council meeting
when council approved what
became known as The Ecine-
ville Festival from Hell,
which was scheduled for and
took place last Saturday, Aug.
18.
Rules for the festival were
simple: The bridges would
be opened at midnight
Friday, when every Ecineville
resident who wanted to play
in the festival had to be on
the island. The bridges were


opened so no one could
leave.
Then all laws, rules, deco-
rum and decency would be
suspended until noon Sa-
turday, when the festival
would end.
At midnight, when police
sirens sounded starting the
festival, Herman (because
this is a family newspaper
that doesn't want to get sued,
we're using only first names,
and those -first names may
have been changed), any-
way, Herman went up to
Ecineville City Councilor
CindyWilson (we will use the
real names of city officials
because they can't win if they
sue us) and started scream-
ing at her.
Not everyone believed
Wilson really used to be a
man who lived in San Fran-
cisco and worked as a bar-


tender at the Ramrod Bar
and Grill, like Herman was
screaming she was. Some
thought Herman was just
upset because Wilson cast
the deciding vote in not
allowing him to open a strip
club at the old Lookout Bar
location.
Most people were dis-
tracted, though, when they
saw several men had lifted
restaurateur Hank Clemens
off his feet, carried him over
to a "grease only" dumpster
behind his restaurant and
thrown him in. Clemens's
restaurant had for years been
accused of ripping people
off, charging high prices to
tourists and visitors for food.
(I tried Clemens's $32.95
cheeseburger and thought it.
was quite tasty.)
More than 100 people had
rounded up every car sales-


man in town and were stuff-
ing at least 40 of them into a
Volkswagen Bug. The scream-
ing was painful to listen to.
The crowd had stuffed the
used-car salesmen in first,
crushing them with. new-car
salesmen.
Fearing the worst, insur-
ance salesmen had started
running within seconds of
the festival starting. A crowd
had cornered a group of
them in a room in the old
Ykcutnek Military Institute.
They wrapped each one
in reams and reams of paper,
with openings only for their
eyes, nose and mouth. As the
salesmen lay on their backs,
the crowd tied the legs of one
insurance salesman to the
arms of the next and so on.
The line of 18 completely
white, paper-wrapped bod-
ies stretched 130 feet as they


were being dragged off to-
ward the East woods out by
Boodle Road.
Seven men and that wo-
man who bartends at that
very strange bar in Yerpso
that only women go to were
running after Ecineville Pub-
lic Information Officer Pa-
mela Anderson when all of a
sudden...

To be continued.

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 FESTIVAL,
FESTIVAL (Insert sound clip
of Howard Dean's 2004
scream after the Iowa prima-
ry) FESTIVAL FROM HELL
here in Ecineville.

MOTE NOTES


Architeuthis dux, commonly
known as a giant squid. The
identification is based on ten-
tacle clubs (the clubs at the
end of the long, thin tenta-
cles), basic body shape, arm
shape, sucker rings, fin shape
and the squid beak, which is
an important key to identifi-
cation.
There was no obvious
cause of death..
The squid, weighing in at
2.7 pounds, was measured,
photographed and preserved
in formalin for further study.

Please see MOTE, 5B

ELLEN HILLSTROM
COI IMNIST


In 1989, Sarasota County
voters approved the collec-
tion of an optional "penny
sales tax" for 10 years, then
approved its extension for
another 10 years to 2009. If


the current proposed exten-
sion is approved, it will be for
the next 15 years, to 2024.
The Sarasota Board of
County Commissioners is
contemplating putting the
referendum for extension on
the Nov. 6 or Jan. 29 ballot.
I have had the opportunity
to read the proposed uses of
the sales tax extension and
find some of the projects very
interesting, especially as they
relate to improvements in
South County and in our
case, at the South Venice Civic
Association, South Venice.
Here are a few proposals:
Creation of a facility at or
near the Robert L. Anderson
Administration Annex in


Venice for four to five new
courtrooms.
Treating stormwater from
Alligator Creek and providing
amenities for a new park, if
possible.
Improving technology at
all the county libraries.
Enhancements at Cas-
persen Beach, including ad-
ditional restroom facilities,
sewer hookup and expanded
community gathering space.
Public use improvements
and facilities at existing and
future sites within Neighbor-
hood Parks and Environmen-
tally Sensitive Lands land
acquisition programs.
Providing central waste-
water collection system to


SSyndicated Content -


existing urban areas as well as
providing central water distri-
bution within Sarasota
County. I wonder if any of
those funds includes South
Venice.
Keep your eyes on the
news, as I believe the pro-
posed ordinance will be com-
ing up to the county commis-
sion soon (maybe Aug. 28)
with a public hearing sched-
uled for Sept. 12.
I hope there will be a pub-
lic hearing in South County so
that we may address the pro-
posals here.

Ellen Hillstrom is the
South Venice Civic Associ-
ation development director

DONNA MARTONFI
RELIGION COLUMNIST


If you have been reading
my articles for any length of
time, you probably remember
that back in 1991 it seemed as
if my life had blown up in my
face. I use the word "seemed"
because I totally lost my
understanding of God for
more than three and one half
years because of what tran-
spired. My husband and I
were embezzled out of an
incredible amount of money
when we sold the 82-acre
farm we held as an invest-
ment. The funds from the sale
of that farm were absolutely
crucial. They were going to be
used to eliminate the large
mortgage we owed on a third
property that we had intend-
ed to turn into a shelter for
abused women. By the time
all the dust settled, we were
left with exactly 36 cents to
our name. This could not


have happened at a worse
moment because at that time
we had two sons in university
and our youngest son was
about to enter Bible College.
Prior to that point in my
life I had a direct line to heav-
en. Suddenly it seemed as if
the phone had become dis-
connected and the line had
gone dead. I could not hear
from God. He seemed to be
totally silent. What I didn't
realize until after those three
and one half pitiful years was
he was speaking loud and
clear, but not in the way I
expected or was accustomed
to. My focus was on what I
had lost instead of on what
the Lord was providing
because he completely and
totally met our needs, each
and every one, on a day-to-
day basis. Just as the Lord had
sent the prophet Elijah to the
Brook Cherith and sustained
him there, he had a little
brook prepared for me, but I
barely noticed because it was
just a slow, steady trickle
instead of a torrent like
Niagara Falls. I did not have a
week's worth of shopping or a
month's supply of groceries in
my fridge, but God did send
those ravens each and every
day, just as he did for Elijah.
I'm shocked now when I
think back to that time that I
did not see the hand of God


supernaturally intervening
again and again. I guess it was
because I had always been
very self-sufficient and accus-
tomed to making truckloads
of money. So, instead of
focusing on God's miraculous
provisions, I became so dis-
combobulated I could barely
function. So much for my
"massive faith"! Since my hus-
band was also a workaholic,
the trauma of losing 25 years
worth of blood, sweat and
tears and having absolutely
nothing to show for it caused
him to start having heart
attacks, and his health deteri-
orated dramatically. His faith
was in me rather than in God,
so when I began to live in a
constant state of anxiety, his
world crumbled.
That life-changing event
and the years that followed
taught me some incredible
lessons and changed my life
so dramatically that I intend
to write a book about the
entire experience and the
thousands of miracles that
God enacted for us. There
were literally thousands,
because God had to intervene
MANY times a day because
we had come to the end of
ourselves and our own efforts.
I know that story will help and
encourage many people and

FRIENDSHIP CENTERS

Senior Friendship Centers
is happy to announce a grant
received in August 2007 from
the national Faith In Action
Project Support Fund to bring
Balance Movement classes to
south Sarasota County faith
communities. This effective
and popular class was de-


signed by Balance and Mo-
bility Specialist Lori Whittle,
MPH, specifically to reduce
seniors' risk of falling. More
than 1,000 Sarasota residents
have already experienced
Balance Movement.
Senior Friendship Centers
is looking for church and faith
partners to implement this
train-the-trainer program in
their own locations. Inter-


ested faith communities will
identify at least two potential
Balance Movement class
leaders willing to lead weekly
classes for seniors. Leaders
will receive three leadership-
training sessions with Whittle

MARTONFI from Page6B


give them hope to believe
God in the midst of their own
disastrous situations.
Sixteen years later, and
now much older, something
just as earthshaking hap-
pened again. But, this time, I
am not only older, I am much
wiser, so I immediately ran to
get a word from God and just
happened to open my Bible
to 2 Chronicles chapter 20,
- where the Lord told King
Jehoshaphat to stand still and
see the salvation of the Lord.
Then, as Jehoshaphat stood
and began to sing and praise
the Lord, God intervened on
his behalf. You really need to
read this incredible story of
God's faithfulness.


Since our current catastro-
phe is too big for us to handle,
I know Iwill just have to
"stand" and believe God will
work it all out. So, this morn-
ing, I reminded my husband
that when Paul and Silas were
beaten and then thrown into
that horrible dungeon, forced
to sit in their own filth with
their feet shackled, that they
did not murmur or complain
or panic, but they started to
sing praises to their God and
suddenly an earthquake
shook the prison so hard that
the doors were thrust open
and their chains fell off, and
the Lord delivered them
supernaturally (Acts 16). I
then spent the morning


singing and worshiping God
instead of falling apart.'
SLater in the day, I pon-
dered some ideas and topics
for this month's article. I had
actually wrestled for an entire
week on what to write. I was
having some difficulty until
just after supper, when I sat at
the computer and began typ-
ing this story to this very spot
right here ... and that's when I
received my confirmation
from heaven. My friend Lena
called from Dominica an'd
said God had prompted her
to call ahd prophecy over me.
Under a tremendous anoint-
ing she said the Lord told her
I was in a fierce battle. I had
been cast into the fiery fur-


nace and the heat was being
turned higher and hotter, but
that if Ido (don't miss this ...)
what Paul and Silas did and
sing praises to our God that
he would release Warring
Angels to deliver me. Then,
she continued (don't miss this
either), I. should just "stand
still and see the salvation of
the Lord" as Jehoshaphat did
because God was going to
fight on my behalf.
Then, she told me to get a
flag and wave it as I sang. It
would be a symbol that I
already have the victory. Then
(it just gets better) she said
the Lord specifically wanted
me to read Psalm 27. When I
turned to that psalm I saw a


note in the margin that read,
"See FLAG article No. 40
Martch2002." ,.
That's three separate, pro-
phetic confirmations of God's
intended intervention. How's
THAT for a direct line to heav-
en?
Many of you are in the fight
of your lives, and it's taking
everything within you to
maintain your faith in God,
but this article is YOUR
answer from heaven and the
Lord is saying to you, "Trust in
me. I will see you through this
problem.
Don't let the devil steal
your joy.
Sing songs of praise!
Rejoice! Then watch and see


what marvelous things I will
doforyou"! :
:The.:rfect ending i, this;
article is a quote from Jeremy
Taylor ... "It is'impossible for
that man to despair who
remembers that his Helper is
omnipotent."
His number is (800) SING-
PRAISES-TO-HIS-NAME.

The
reasons
why people said they
tried the non-medical
care was to control pain,
because they heard it helps,
because it is safe, because it
helped someone they know, and
because their prescription
medication wasn't working. Study
after study has confirmed the success
of chiropractic for many types of spine
related health complaints. At TWIN
)PALMS CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH
CENTER, we recommend a continuing
schedule of regular chiropractic
checkups, which can help detect,
correct, and maintain optimum
spinal and nervous system function.
Please call 941.412.3800 to schedule
an appointment and let us help you
lead a healthier life. We're located
at 1214-C Venice Ave. East. We
offer massage therapy *and have 2

Uncoln MKX: Ford is attempting to change that perception by introducing new Lincolns
that update classic styling in a fresh, modern, upscale way. See page 2
