Farms giving way to development


Like much of the Southeastern U.S., Southwest
Florida is experiencing a loss of agricultural land
to the encroachment of land developers hungry
for affordable property to develop.


BY JOHN LAWHORNE
STAFF WRITER


Two acres of agricultural
farmland in the United States
are being lost to development
every minute. -
"Farm and ranch land is
desirable for building be-
cause it tends to be flat, well-
drained and affordable,"
according to the American
Farmland Trust, a nonprofit
organization formed to stop
the loss of productive farm-
land in the U. S. 'And the
rapid rate of agricultural land
converted to development is
unnecessary... with our best
agricultural soils being devel-
oped the fastest."
The disappearance of farm,
land is apparent in Southwest
Florida: Urban and suburban
communities have steadily
encroached on what were
once-productive citrus groves
and pasture lands.
The first great impetus of
rapid growth in Charlotte
County was the Mackle
Brothers later General
Development Corporation -
which founded Port Charlotte
in 1954. During the next 50
years, other developers built
more communities. All that


growth clobbered farm and
pasture land and destroyed
the rural nature of the coastal
communities.
Eventually, demand for an
affordable, rural lifestyle sent
homebuilders and develop-
ers from the overcrowded and
expensive coastal counties
like Charlotte and Sarasota
into the inland counties such
as DeSoto and Hardee. The
rush to convert agricultural
land to residential and com-
mercial was on.
As demand for devel-
opable land increased, prices
went up.
The boom
Development seems now
to be .speeding up, and with
that, the loss of agricultural
land. .'
"Two years ago we saw our
land values boom," said Ken
Harrison, president of the
DeSoto/Charlotte County
Farm Bureau. "Everything
was selling, with the final end
use being residential housing.
Land values went up, and an
awful lot of it was speculators
that were out ahead of the
actual builders; they were try-
ing to buy land with the pur-
pose of reselling it, and alot of


agriculture land sold. At least
in terms of ownership, it was
converted from a true agri-
culture owner to someone
else who had a more inten-
sive use in mind.
"A lot of that land hasn't
changed in use yet, but the
owner has changed. It's no
longer an agriculture owner,
Now we're in a depressed part
of the real estate cycle ... the
value of land has probably
decreased some."
Migration
Hardee County rancher
Barbara Carlton, who comes
from seven generations of
ranchers, has firsthand expe-
rience. Two years ago, the
Carlton family sold its 5,700-
acre 2 X 4 Ranch in DeSoto
County to a developer who
intends to eventually build a
huge residential community.
Carlton noted there has
been a steady migration from
the coastal counties to inland
rural counties.
"Not only is property rela-
tively cheaper inland," she
said, "but inland sites are not
as susceptible to storms."
Not everyone, however, is
succumbing to the lure of
fabulous offers by developers
looking to acquire land.
Surrounded

on his Vann Bee Ridge Farm
in Sarasota County, is hang-
ing on to what's left of his'

farm. Thanks to his greenbelt
classification, Vann, a retired
railroad worker, still lives on
his 10-acre farm in east
Sarasota near Interstate 75.
"I've got the only farm left
on my road," he said.
He has been farming his
land since 1973. He began
with 40 acres, sold off half
that, and then half that, and


now has only 10 acres.,
"Now I've got no place to
raise animals. I'm surround-
ed," Vann said.
Would he sell out and find
a more suitable place with
fewer people?
"I'm not moving," he said.
"I hope I'm here till my num-
ber's up." :
Vann said developers used


to, come around and try to
buy him out. None succeed-
ed.
"I told them they didn't
have enough money to buy
me out. I finally weaned 'em.
They hardly come around
anymore."

Department commends Building a better community

Venice comp plan d


The Florida
Department of
Community Affairs
praises the city's draft
comprehensive plan,
but called for more
extensive data and
analysis.

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

There were no surprises in
the state's review of the Venice
Comprehensive Plan, accord-
ing to City Manager Marty
Black.
The draft long range plan
for the city, last updated in
1999, just survived a three-
month review process by the
Department of Community
Affairs.
"The department com-
mends the city on the innova-
tive approach that has been
followed to involve' all the
public and private partners in
the planning process," said
Mike McDaniel, chief of DCA's
office of comprehensive plan-
ning, referring to the Envision
Venice meetings held in 2004
and the EAR-based (Eval-
uation and Appraisal Report)
meetings in 2006.
In the cover letter accom-
panying the review, McDaniel
wrote, "The result is a revised
comprehensive plan that
integrates progressive plan-
ning principles with tradi-
tional planning concepts."
It's standard practice for
DCA to issue a series of

tions and comments" from
other departments on the
draft comp plan. The city can
adopt them, ignore them or
come up with alternatives.
Black estimates it will take
another three to four weeks
for city planners to gather the
requested data and analysis
and make changes to numer-
ous policies before it goes
back to council.
Mark ups
In a 16-page report,
DCA administrators request-
ed more specific data and
analysis to support under-
lying assumptions about
height, density, and intensity
standards for development.
In some cases, DCA rec-
ommended the city rewrite its
policies or objectives.
The mixed-use policy, in
particular, was referred to as
"vague (and) does not offer
meaningful and predictable
standards for ensuring a pro-
portionate development of
mixed-use neighborhoods
because it does not establish
minimum' amounts of each
type of use."
DCA recommended estab-
lishing a percentage distribu-
tion among the mix of uses
(e.g., 10-20 percent residen-
tial, 10-30 percentage com-
mercial, etc.) to ensure a pro-
portionate mixes of uses.
Reviewers also expressed
concern about the policies
that encourage accessory
dwelling units or "granny
flats." The draft comp plan
promises a future study to

Sarasota County libraries may open coffee bars


In an effort to raise additional funds to help sup-
plant $865,500 in recent budget cuts to Sarasota
County libraries, officials are considering opening
coffee bars to brew some cash.


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


How about a steaming
latte, espresso or cappuccino
while you peruse that latest
bestseller at your local public
library?
It may happen, according
to Sarasota, County Com-
missioner Shannon Staub.
"I think (Libraries Director)
Sarabeth Kalajian is already
considering this with various
businesses," Staub said. "It
would seem to me to be a
very attractive idea."
Staub said that if smaller,
so-called "satellite" libraries
evolve in area shopping cen-
ters, the county might partner


with coffee shops or book
stores in those locations as
well.
"It's a whole new way of
thinking," Staub said.
The idea comes on the
heels of recent budget cuts to
the library system for fiscal
year 2008, totaling $865,000.
That move forced Sarasota
County to reduce hours at the
Elsie Quirk, Jacaranda, Selby,
Venice, North Port and
Fruitville libraries and make
cuts in staff.
Kalajian said any success
with the idea hinges on find-
ing a vendor willing to partic-
ipate in the endeavor.
"They all want to know
what the numbers are,"

Kalajian said. "How many
people are in the library, how
long they stay."
Atmosphere
Kalajian said some Florida
libraries have experimented
with the idea, with mixed
results.
"You can almost draw a
line down the middle of the
ones who thought it was one
of the best ideas they ever
had and the ones who think
it was not a great idea,"
Kalajian said, adding that
messy coffee spills and
accompanying insect prob-
lems hindered success in
certain locales.
"Certainly our facilities
maintenance partners
would want to be in on deci-
sions early on, because it
impacts them," she said.
Library staff could not be
involved in the enterprise,
she said, due to recent cuts


in personnel.
Sarasota County is home
to one of the busiest library
systems in the state, accord-
ing to Curt Preisser of the
county's community services
communications depart-
ment. In 2006, more than 2.1
million people visited Sara-
sota County public libraries
the highest ranking for vis-
its-per-capita in the state.
With that kind of atten-
dance, Kalajian believed
strategically placed coffee
.bars could raise some serious
money.
"I love the idea," Kalajian
said, "because it encourages
people to stay. Certainly the
book stores have been suc-
cessful with it, as it creates a
casual, relaxed atmosphere.
And many people coming to
the library are looking for
that."

Student is environmental steward


Tougher wildlife law in the works


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Zach Glasser's first meet-
ing as a member of the
Environmentally Sensitive
Lands Oversight Committee
on Sept. 6 was "very exciting."
"I think that ESLOC has a
very important role in pre-
serving Sarasota County for
generations, and to save our
pristine natural beauty from
overdevelopment," he said.
The addition to the com-
mittee of its first STAR
(Students Taking Active Roles
in Sarasota County) graduate
brought what one member
described as "a fresh breath"
to its effort.
Since passage of a county-
wide referendum in 1999 to
protect natural areas from
development, ESLOC has
bought and set aside more
than 16,000 acres of land at a
net cost of $77 million.
Its authority and funding
were approved that year and
in a second referendum in
2005 by a 4-1 vote of county
residents.
Glasser, a junior at Car-
dinal Mooney ,High School
and an Osprey resident, was
directed by the Community
Youth Foundation to the
committee when he complet-
ed the 14-week STAR training.
"I was thrilled to learn
about ESLOC and its mission,
although I had been unaware
of it," he said.
S Since its establishment
Eight years ago, ESLOC had
purchased 57 parcels of land
through last June. They
ranged in size from less than 1
acre up to 3,600 acres, accord-
ing to Brooke Elias, ESLOC
coordinator. They were
obtained at 92 percent of their
appraised value. The gross
cost was just more than $100
million, but was offset by
$23.7 million in partnerships
and grants.
His first meeting im-
pressed Glasser with the
"importance for our commu-
nity to realize that there are
- some unique and rare habi-
tats within the county, and we
must preserve them, or lose
some forever."

Zach Glasser participates in a discussion with other members of the

and setting aside undeveloped land for conservation.


Hopeful
In their two-hour, 17-
minute meeting, committee
members went back and
forth with questions of the
ESLOC staff and among
themselves on how to pro-
ceed on several parcels of
land on Manasota Key, Deer
Prairie Creek and the Myakka
River.
Among them:
"How do we rank a proper-
ty on the basis of a field site
assessment of coastal ham-
mocks?"
"Have we timely answers
to our appraisal bid re-
quests?"
"Do negotiations so far
suggest a price that is reason-


able and prudent for the
county?"
From this first session,
Glaser concluded, "I hope I
can help protect Sarasota's
natural beauty and wildlife
through this experience."

of its kind .in the United
States, STAR assigns its grad-
uates to government and

ters affecting county resi-
dents. The students, of
whom more than 80 are in

BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Impatience with state poli-
cies governing the killing of
gopher tortoises by develop-
ers is pushing Sarasota
County and the state to come
up with a stronger wildlife
protection code for all
species.
The Board of County
Commissioners is expected
to review a proposed staff-
written ordinance that con-
solidates separate manage-
ment programs for bald
eagles, manatees, sea turtles,
gopher tortoises and scrub
jays this month.
It will include recommen-
dations by the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission expected to be
made next month, according
to Matt Osterhoudt, manager
of resource protection for the
county.
Osterhoudt and State Rep.
Keith Fitzgerald expect
tougher new protection regu-
lations to emerge from the
Legislature and the commis-
sioners.
'Although this is a difficult
budget year for the Leg-
islature, more needs to be
done to protect the state's
species," Fitzgerald said. "It's
not so much the importance


of gopher tortoises or any one
species, but rather the impact
on all species."
Fitzgerald said that about
10,000 acres of land in north-
ern Florida have been pur-
chased by the state for relo-
cated gopher tortoises. The
money came from the sale of
"incidental take" permits.
They were required until July
30 by the Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission of
developers and local govern-
ments to stop them from
killing the tortoises with bull-
dozers leveling land.
Permitting ended in July,
but not before more than $50
million was collected. The
land purchases cost $13 mil-
lion.
Mystery
The issue of tortoise deaths
has bedeviled the county for
more than 12 years, accord-
ing to Gayle Reynolds of the
Sarasota-Manatee Sierra
Club. Her group has sought
tighter rules on clearing land
for development for some
time.
"If developers clear land
prematurely, they should
have to pay to restore it," she
said. "Before permitting was
ended, they cleared the
land, then applied for per-
mission to do so. By then,


there was no habitat or
species to save."
Osterhoudt said that cur-
rent county regulations re-
quire land development pro-
posals to avoid killing species.
They can remove and relocate
them.
"Permits were easy to get,
as everyone knew," he said.
"But were the species really
being relocated? We don't
know."
"We hear that there's no
place to put gopher tortoises
in Central and Northern
Florida," Reynolds said. "The
money has been allocated by
the state, but there is no one
to manage the land. There
must be controls."
The proposed county ordi-
nance would preserve upland
species and habitats in a plan
submitted in draft form by
the Sierra Club in 2004. The
resulting ordinance will e-
volve from environmental
workshops involving stake-
holders, county staffers and
representatives of the state
held since January.
More than 94,000 tortois-
es were buried alive in the
17-year history of inciden-
tal take permit sales,
according to state esti-
mates. But environmental-
ists suggest that the num-
ber is 10 times that.

City wants high-tech roundabout at Jacaranda


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Venice City Council's safety
concerns over pedestrian and
bicycle traffic at a proposed
roundabout might be ad-
dressed by high-tech warning
lights, according to City Man-
ager Marty Black.
The "smartcrosswalk," by
Light Guard Systems Inc., has
motion detec-
tors that trig-
ger a flashing
pedestrian
crossing sign
and in-road :-
blinking lights.
It's the type
of warning sys-
tem, say city
officials, that Black
could help ov-
ercome coun-
cil's resistance to the pro-
posed roundabout at Jaca-
randa Boulevard and East
Venice Avenue.
Preliminary designs by
county planners called for a
simple brick pedestrian
crosswalk throughout the
roundabout.
City planners want some-
thing more substantial.


The smartcrosswalk could
be the answer, but the high-
tech system can run up to half
the cost of a normal traffic
signal, adding back in some of
the expense the roundabout
is supposed to avoid.
"I'm optimistic we're mov-
ing in that direction," Black
said. "I don't think the design,
at this point, resolves that"
pedestrian safety issue.
The intersection is reach-
ing its maximum capacity,
and will either need to be
expanded with additional
turning lanes and an im-
proved traffic signal, or, alter-
natively, reconstructed into a
roundabout to improve traffic
flow.
A growing problem
Planned development
around the intersection could
mean thousands more resi-
dents in the area in the nrot-
too-distant future.
The city wants to provide
the maximum amount of
input into intersection im-
provements, said Black.
"We either accept the Bee
Ridge-Cattleman Road (type
of) intersection, where no-
body can ever cross it safely,"

detectors (white pylons) that trigger a flashing pedestrian crossing
sign and in-road blinking lights.


or consider an alternative.
City and county staff will
meet Oct. 16 with hopes to
develop joint recommenda-
tions for the intersection.
City staff will present the
recommendations to council
'on Oct. 23.
If council declines the rec-


commendation, the city and
county would officially enter
into mediation, with a 90-day
limit.
"My personal goal is not to
end in mediation," Black said.
Surprised
At a joint meeting on Sept.


26, City Manager Marty Black
reminded county 'commis-
sioners the city already
invoked mediation over the
roundabout, designed to stay
all action by the county.
That didn't stop Sarasota
County Planning Commis-
sion from discussing the issue
the very next evening.
"I was flipping through the
channels tonight and was
surprised to see the county
planning commission con-
ducting a hearing on the ...
petition," Black wrote in an e-
mail last week to county plan-
ner Rob Lowe.
"It appeared that the com-
mission was unaware of the
stay provisions and dispute
resolution process."
He didn't quite say the city
of Venice is ready to sue the
county if it doesn't stop action
on the roundabout, but he
came close.
Black copied city attorney
Bob Anderson with the e-
mail, and gave direction "to
intervene with county legal
staff since it would appear
that tonight's hearing violated
the stay requirement"
Fortunately, the commis-
sion continued its considera-


"I'm optimistic we're
moving in that direc-
tion. I don't think the
design, at this point,
resolves that" pedes-
trian safety issue.
City Manager
Marty Black on the
"smartcrosswalk"


tion of the roundabout peti-
tion until Nov. 15.
"They apologized, and said
they wouldn't do it again,"
Black said.
The intersection is located
just outside city limits; thus
it's ultimately a county deci-
sion to make.

be located something DCA
wasn't .comfortable with.
DCA requested the city
carry out the study before it
submits its final comp plan
amendments, and "identify
the appropriate neighbor-
hoods to locate accessory
dwelling units."
DCA also took issue with
city's future land use map.
"The proposed FLUM con-
tains significant areas of
increased development


potential not supported by
data and analysis" in the new
infill and redevelopment
areas, stated DCA.
"Alternatively, do not
adopt these as future land use
categories, but instead con-
sider the adoption of these
community villages as over-
lays which assume the exist-
ing densities and intensities."
DCA also said the plan did-
n't contain a required five-
year. schedule of capital


improvements.

Objections
Sue Lang, a longtime critic
of the comp plan, who is also
running for city council, said
she was glad to see the
department's objections.
"We think it needs to be
revised, not just (providing)
additional information, and
corrections need to be made,"
Lang said.
"(The draft comp plan)


contradicts Envision Venice
regarding height and density.
The goals, objectives and
policies are calling for in-
creases in density... from the
current 13 units per acre up to
25." '
She's not happy the city
dropped a policy that would
discourage tall buildings
along the coast.
"That was never dis-
cussed,", she said. "We
dropped the one statement


... and substituted it with vil-
lages of six to seven stories.
The heights are totally out of
character."
She's also promoting a pol-
icy on climate control and
carbon emissions.
Lang said the governor for-
warded her comments in
support of climate-related
policies to DCA, and "(they)
are considering initiating leg-
islation that would amend
the statute so that all comp


plans address climate
change."
Black said the city intends
to fully comply with DCA's
review and recommenda-
tions.
"We've never fought the
state on these," he said. "Are
they impossible to resolve?
No."
The final comp plan is due
back to the state in Nov-
ember.

Sustainability
workshop scheduled
Planners, builders and de-
velopers, engineers, archi-
tects and landscape archi-
tects, as well as transporta-
tion sector representatives,

Housing funds
approved
Sarasota County commis-
siQners cemented a deal with
Habitat for Humanity South
Sept. 13 that will be the first
public-private partnership to
benefit from the Community
Housing Fund.
Habitat will receive about
$660,000 from the Com-
munity Housing Fund to
build 18 multi-family resi-
dences for people whose
income doesn't exceed 80
percent of the area median
income. The homes will
remain permanently afford-
able because the land will be
owned by the Community
Housing Trust.
In June 2007, the county
commissioners selected se-

OUR VIEW



The right result, but what took so long?


n the finest tradition of damned-if-you-
do, damned-if-you-don't journalism, we
feel compelled to comment on Venice
City Council's Tra Ponti decision, even
though it's what we were hoping for.
While we applaud the result, the process
has left us scratching our head, much as we
did during discussions of development at
Venice Municipal Airport.
Before we go on, let us put what follows in
context: We do not oppose redevelopment
of the property between Waterford's
Waterfront condominiums and the Venice
Avenue Bridge. Few areas of Venice need
renovation as much as this one does.
In fact, we really haven't heard anyone
completely opposed to some sort of renewal
project to make that area more attractive
and more profitable. The chorus of voices
that spoke at the Sept. 11 council meeting
and through letters to the editor and Let'em
Have It calls overwhelmingly favored a
shorter development, but not none at all.
And council members heard those voices
and shelved Tra Ponti until a public work-


shop or two can be held to get a better feel
for what their constituents will accept. That,
after all, is what they are in office to consid-
er, not whether the developer will make
enough money.
Holding a workshop is the right thing to
do, but it's what should have been done
before council ever formally considered the
project. (And the cynic in us has to ask
whether the same decision would have been
made if we weren't a month away from an
election.)
Tra Ponti has gone through several incar-
nations with varying heights, densities and
mixes of uses. As it changed, our comments
did as well, but the one thing we and others
have most consistently criticized is height.
The commercial mixed-use zoning dis-
trict that applies in the area sets a basic
height limit of 35 feet plus a floor of parking
(council has the authority to increase the
height to 85 feet). We like that height we
have urged it be the standard for the island
- and we haven't seen a compelling reason
to deviate from it for Tra Ponti.


It very nearly happened, however, despite
two years of complaints about ... the height.
Maybe the voices were louder because
the project was so close to being approved;
'maybe council members finally realized
these were voters who weren't happy. But
those voices have been there since Tra Ponti
came off the drawing board, and the obvious
way to address their concerns was some city
workshops.
Developer Mike Miller held some meet-
ings with the public early on, but little of
what came out of them was incorporated
into the plans.
And as they morphed, some of the more
popular features a heavier mix of retail
uses, a public parking garage were sacri-
ficed, ostensibly to reduce height, but for
only one tower; others are taller now than
they were originally.
We don't recall the city having any work-
shops at any point in the process of the type
it belatedly conducted on the airport.
We consider all the people on council to
be intelligent, well-meaning citizens. That's


why it's curious they've had such a blind
spot for the political aspects of both the air-
port issue and Tra PontL They've either
ignored or not gotten advice from City
Manager Marty Black that would have
spared them a lot of criticism.
It was obvious any proposal to develop
the airport or put new six-story or taller
buildings on the island would cause contro-
versy. In the case of Tra Ponti there was the
additional consideration that the CMU zon-
ing ordinance was new and untried, and it
changed the basic process for approval by
putting the project in its entirety on the table
at the rezoning stage.
Those factors scream out "public work-
shop" to us both as a planning tool and as
a way to defuse complaints about a lack of
public input. Why it took so long for the
message to get to our council members ig a
mystery.
Getting the public more heavily involved
in the future of the city should be the rule,
not the fall-back position.


Tiger Bay is



a good idea


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


For years there has been a
Tiger Bay Club in Sarasota
that is noted for giving mem-
bers a chance to listen to peo-
ple involved in making deci-
sions affecting our lives.
The concept is simple. As
the founders describe the
club, it is a "multi-partisan
political, civic, education and
charitable" forum. It is a way
to listen to politicians, policy-
makers and others in a non-
partisan way.
The club works hard to
ensure that the forum is not
biased on any point of view.
That does not mean mem-
bers aren't spirited, as people
do certainly have a venue to
vent their frustrations.
The Sarasota club has been
really difficult for South
County residents to get to, so
finally a group of involved
South County citizens has
formed a South County club.
They are starting this week
with their first meeting
involving five elected officials,
including Nora Patterson,
county commissioner; Bill
Balkwill, sheriff; Jim Todora,
property appraiser; Barbara
Ford-Coates, tax collector;
and Kathiy Dent, supervisor
of elections. I think they are
commenting on the budget
this year.
The members plan on
rotating where they meet to
make it easier for people; for
instance, sometimes in
Englewood or North Port. The
board is made up of equal
numbers from all municipali-
ties. The first meetings at the
Venetian River & Golf Club
this Friday at noon.
If you want to be involved,
annual dues are $75 (for a cou-
ple it's $100) and the lunches
cost $20. The experience is one
way to listen to those who are
making decisions that affect
you and your family.
You can check it out at
sctbc.member@gmail.com.
The club has 150 members
signed up already.

I find it not such a great
idea to levy bigger fines on
those involved in drugs. While
it is understandable that the


people stealing and causing
all kinds of problems brought
on by drug addiction deserve
punishment, fining them
more money will not solve
their problem, just exacerbate
it.

By's Crack: A hangover
occupies the head you did-
, n't use the night before.


As these people come out
of jail they need help to get
assimilated back into society;
certainly putting a big debt on
them is no way to make that
easier.
It seems funny that we
want to fine them so we can
takethat money to help them.
We certainly need to help
these people, as I noted last
week, but putting bigger bur-
dens on them is not the way.
I got a lot of reaction to my
column on this subject. A
couple of families e-mailed to
say the LIFE program had
turned their child's life
around and now they are
doing very well. That is an
affirmation that we need dif-
ferent approaches.

Today's Ism (seen while in
Martha's Vineyard): Life is not
about finding yourself but
about creating yourself.
.****** *
The brand new Boys &
Girls Club opened Monday to
about 100 kids from middle
and elementary schools.
What a great program.
To join, the cost is $50 a
year and then only a small fee
thereafter. It is an after-school
program that runs to 7 p.m.
The great thing is that this
is not a baby-sitting service
but a dynamic program to
develop our children. There is
a homework "power hour,"
crafts, recreation, computer
learning and much more.
They get transported from
school to the facility.

Starting with today's paper,
those people in the Nokomis,
Osprey, Laurel and North
Venice areas will notice a
change to their paper.
Those people won't see
their familiar Venice Gondo-
lier Sun banner but rather,
The Sun. We are remaking the
paper for the people in this
area. We have some new fea-
tures, photography and de-
sign we hope will be of greater
interest to these residents. It
still will have all the Venice
news.

twice-weekly column in this
paper.


LETTERS FROM'OUR READERS



Moore deserves the credit


Editor:
I know I speak for the majority of the residents of Venice
when I state that Judge John Moore, city council member, has
our deepest gratitude.
He stood up at the council meeting and said he could not
vote to approve the Tra Ponti project. First, the CMU ordinance
was unclear, and second, there were serious unanswered ques-
tions as to actually what we would have if Tra Ponti were
approved: e.g. sufficient parking? would it actually have hotel
rooms permanently? would the shops continue to be there?
Only when Judge Moore moved to postpone the vote did all
of the other council members admit that they, too, had misgiv-
ings.
It is unfortunate that, at this juncture, council andWaterford
really do not have an understanding of what is actually accept-
able to the people.
Workshops will be held and all interested parties will have
an opportunity to make their questions, concerns and wishes
known.
It is the responsibility of all to attend these workshops in
order to accomplish the above, so council can ultimately make
an informed decision as to what will satisfy the people of
Venice.
Were it not for Judge Moore, we would have been thrown
into a morass from which we may never have climbed out.
Thank you, Judge John Moore.

Helmets save lives
Editor:
Almost two years ago, I lost
a beloved grandson to an
accident due to two causes.
One, he didn't wear a hel-
met on a five-minute ride to
work. And second was the
careless driving of a motorist
who was only charged with
failing to yield the right of
way.
He left two pre-teenaged
girls without a dad and a fam-


ily who will forever mourn
and miss him.
A motorcycle is no match
for an automobile. If I could, I
would outlaw motorcycles,
but I can't.
We must be made to buy
and wear helmets, and dri-
vers must be more careful
and strongly fined when they
don't.

I'm just nuts about Venice


JIM CLINCH
GUEST COLUMNIST


I was driving over the new
Shakett Creek Bridge or, as I
like to call it, the Nokomis
Skyway, when my cell phone
rang. It was my buddy advis-
ing me that I had really done
it this time.
"You went to the city coun-
cil meeting and said the anti-
growth people are nuts!" he
said.
"Not exactly," said I. "I was
merely making a point about
the reality of our local econo-
my."
"Well," said my friend,
"you used the word 'nuts' and
now Mrs. (name withheld in
an effort to be civil) is mad as
hell at you! You pick on these
grumpy old folks and it's like
kicking an anthill!"
I pointed out that one per-
turbed senior citizen does not
an anthill make. In fact, the
response I'd been hearing to
my comments was running
about 10 to one in my favor.
Admittedly, I do tend to hang


around better educated,
more intelligent people of all
ages.
My friend's point, however,
was partly right. The "No
Growth" crowd does not take
criticism well. In the past, I've
been vilified for calling the
Venice Taxpayers League reg-
uldrs at city hall "recreational
malcontents." I was accused
of name calling.
Well, what do you call a
group of mostly retired folks
who make a hobby out of be-
ing angry at the government
and vocally opposing almost
everything? I'm open to sug-
gestions for a more apt de-
scriptive phrase.
These people are like mod-
el airplane enthusiasts or
quilters or those people who
cruise all the garage sales ev-
ery weekend. Going to every
public meeting and opposing
everything is a hobby for
them.
For the record, here is what
I said recently before city
council: 'Anyone who thinks
we can have a viable local
economy based solely on
renting kayaks at the Myakka
River, or conducting scrub jay
tours along Waterway Park or
by turning Venice Airport into
a windmill farm is, in a word,
nuts."
I stand by every word, syl-
lable, jot and title of that
statement.
In a sense, we live in a fac-
tory town. It's not like the


Midwest where the local fac-
tory makes Fords or Caterpil-
lar, tractors and employs
everybody in town, or where
the local farm economy dri-
ves business and provides
employment. Our "factory,"
the thing that allows busi-
nesses to stay open and the
government to collect the
taxes it needs to run things,
consists of tourism and home
sales. Period.
This fact is undeniable,
irrefutable and obvious to
anybody who isn't pardon
me for saying it again nuts.
Almost every job in town
exists because of tourism and
real estate activity, which
includes new home construc-
tion. It is essential that people
come here and bring their
disposable incomes with
them. If they stop coming, the
economy dies. It's as simple
as that._
People who want no
change of any kind, who want
no growth, refuse to believe
this.
Frankly, I don't know how
you reason with this group.
It's like those people who
believe we never really went
to the moon, but that it was
all a mock-up filmed on a
soundstage somewhere. You
know, people we call, um ...
nuts. Darn, there's that word
again.
We don't have a big Gen-
eral Motors plant, outside of
town to drive our local econo-


my. We don't have agriculture
or commercial fishing fleets.
We don't have and let's all
agree we don't want oil
derricks and refineries like
Louisiana.
We have tourists, snow-
birds, construction and real
estate. Like it or not, that's
what we have. And, fact is, we
are a whole lot better off
because of it.
There are wonderful stores
and restaurants, award-win-
ning community theater,
beautiful free public beaches,
fountains, an awesome
YMCA, parks, festivals, art
shows and really fun high
school sports programs.
If the recreational malcon-
tents had their way we'd have
none of it. We would be Sun
City Center South. Anyone for
shuffleboard?
So, I am sorry if certain
angry, misguided, atavistic,
over-medicated, illogical and
uninformed citizens take
issue with my comments.
To those who wish I would
just shut up and go away, I
can only say, in the words of
Gen. Tony McAuliffe when
invited to surrender by the
Germans at the Battle of the
Bulge: "Nuts!"
Jim Clinch is a 1976 Venice
High graduate, he and his
family returned to Venice in
1998 and he has been an
active volunteer in the com-
munity.


LET 'EM HAVE IT: SHOULD SCRUB JAY HABITATS BE ESTABLISHED

One bad turn deserves a ticket
'U' is wrong. I must make a compliment, which I don't hear
very often on Let'em Have It because most people complain. I
have one of each. I have a compliment and a complaint. The
compliment is that the post office on West Venice Avenue looks
lovely. I don't know who did that. I think the Boys Scouts did
some of it, but whoever did it, it is beautiful around the front of
the post office now. The complaint is that I live near Venice
Commons and the "No U-turn" sign on the comer of Capri
Isles Boulevard and East Venice Avenue is just about worthless
with these people in Venice.. Either they can't read or they just
love breaking the rules. Perhaps if that no U-turn would be up
near the traffic light where they don't have any excuse that they
can't see it, maybe they can finally obey the rule.


Classified. This is about
the North Port Library. It's get-
ting ridiculous. You go to read
a magazine or newspaper -
before they wanted your
name; now they want your
name and your phone num-
ber. That's a violation of your
privileges. I think the women
are looking for men's phone
numbers. I just thought the
people ought to know. I don't
know of any other library that
does it, and they accuse you
of stealing the Classifieds.
You'd think with the budget
cuts, they'd find something
better to do than taking peo-
ple's names and phone num-
bers down to read the paper.
At the Venice library, the papers
are sitting out there for people
to read at free will. Here, you got
to wait in line, sign your name
and now, give them phone
numbers. Next, they'll want
your Social Security number.
Pro LIFE. I appreciate your
recent blurb on the tragic loss
of your former employee to


drugs, and your mention of
the LIFE program. We had a
child who completed the
LIFE program, turned his life
around completely and is
now happy and successful. It
was a long, hard struggle 20
years ago. Nothing about the
process was easy, believe me.
Without the brilliance of the
program director, Helen Pe-
termann, LIFE might have
been just another ho-hum
program. Her dedication to
her work and her love of "the
kids" made all the difference.
It is indeed sad that there are
no really good alternatives for
parents who are caught in the
nightmare of a druggie child.
It would be wonderful if LIFE
could be brought back to this
area; it is sorely needed.
Cut short. Regarding the
newTVboolc We do not like it
at all. It is inconcise, and it
does not give us the necessary
information. Everything has
been cut short. That's our
opinion.

children trot off to
school seemingly
carrying the weight of the
world on their shoulders,'
you may want to give some
attention to their backpacks.
According to the North America
Spine Society, a loaded backpack
should weigh no more than 10 to 15
percent of a child's body weight. As a
general rule, backpacks should weigh
about 5 to 10 pounds for elementary
school students and no more than 15
pounds for older students. It is also
important that students not sling one
strap over one shoulder. The load
should be distributed evenly by
using both straps and adjusting
them snugly to the shoulders.
Encourage your children to practice
proper posture while wearing a
backpack.

Two die in 11-car 1-75 pile up in Sarasota


STAFF REPORT

A 42-year-old Sarasota
man and a 54-year-old Miami
man were killed Monday
morning in an 11-car wreck
that closed the northbound
lanes of Interstate 75 in
Sarasota for nearly seven
hours, the Florida Highway
Patrol reported.
James P Brashear of Sara-
sota and Manuel R. Ramirez
of Miami were killed in a
wreck near Bee Ridge Road
that may have been due to
construction in the area. The
wreck occurred at 12:25 a.m.
The northbound lanes didn't
open until nearly 8 a.m.
Tyler Brashear, 11, the son
of James R Brashear, was
flown to Ba front Medical
Center in St. Petersburg.
When the crash happened,
police officers and a road
construction company were
using a rolling roadblock to
shift the northbound traffic.


The left travel lane was closed
and the traffic was shifted to
the center and right lanes.
The wreck happened
when Pablo A. Merlos of Mi-
ami was driving his truck in
the center lane approaching
the roadblock. Brashear, also
in the center lane and ahead
of the truck, was approaching
traffic that was stopping
ahead of him, the FHP said.
Ramirez was in the right lane.
As Merlos was approach-
ing the slowing traffic, he did
not stop and he hit Brashear's
car, the FHP reported. The
collision pushed the car onto
the shoulder of the inter-
state. Merlos' truck continued
north and it hit another car,
swiped two others, then
struck another vehicle in the
rear, the FHP reported. That
last vehicle then hit the rear of
another vehicle, which then
hit another vehicle before
those two stopped on the
shoulder of the road.


Another driver trying to get
away from the wreck entered
the left travel lane. His car
then hit Merlos' truck and the
truck jackknifed and finally
stopped in the middle of the
interstate.
Minor injuries
There were other injuries
in the wreck, but none was
serious enough to send any-
one to the hospital..
Those involved in the
wreck included:
Merlos, 33, of Miami, suf-
fered minor injuries. He was
treated at Doctor's Hospital.
Leonel D. Hernandez, 43,
of Sarasota, suffered minor
injuries. He was traveling with
Aurea Hernandez Negrin, 49,
who suffered minor injuries.
Glorivette Molina Alamo,
28, of Tarpon Springs, had no
injuries. She was with Marcel
D. Hunter, 31, of Palm Harbor,
who had no injuries.
Chw Chau Johnston, 20,


of Largo, suffered minor in-
juries. He was with Dija A.
Phaire, 20 of Wesley Chappel,
Fla., who suffered minor in-
juries.
Kristen L. Coleman, 23, of
Cape Coral, suffered minor
injuries.
Sara J. Orneas, 30, of
Orlando, had minor injuries.
She was with Missole J. Prival,
26, of Orlando, who had
minor injuries.
Armando Reseniz-Cruz,
25, of Palmetto, had no
injuries.
Moises G. Lee, 27, of Fort
Myers, had no injuries.
Robert M. Spillane, 48, of
Englewood, had no injuries.
The FHP doesn't anticipate
any charges, though it is still
investigating the wreck.

WEDNESDAY
OCT.3,2007 SO


BYTRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

For the second time this
season, the Venice High
-School football team lost a
game that they probably
should have won.
Three turnovers inside the
red zone against Sarasota
High School killed the Indians
in their first loss. Then, on
Friday, it happened again.
Venice more than doubled
Golden Gate High School's
offensive production, but five
turnovers were the difference
in the 19-14 loss.
"We ran 58 plays on of-
fense and out of those 58
plays, seven of those were
possible turnovers," Head
Coach John Peacock said.
"We are definitely going to
work on that. Our running
backs are conscious about it.
They were keeping the ball
tight but sometimes it just
happens."
Aside from the turnovers,
the Indians played a good
game after having what Pea-
cock called their best week in
practice.
Receiving the Darby Buick,


Pontiac, GMC Rudy Award for
Practice Player of the Week
was senior Kyle Keefe, who
practiced hard despite being
a little dinged up after the
game with Lakewood Ranch
High School.
The Babe's Ace Hardware
and Porter Paints Special
Team's Player of the Week
award went to junior Tommy
Haskett. He recovered a cru-
cial fumble on a punt return
by junior Dre Archer.
The Defensive Player of the
Week award, presented by The
Nautical Trader, went to senior
defensive end Jamie Owen for
his part in holding the Titans to
just 73 yards rushing.
Finally, the Offensive Play-
er of theWeek award, present-
ed by Regions Bank, went to
senior offensive guard Ronnie
Thomas for his hand in open-
ing up holes for the Venice
ground game to gain 186
yards on the night.
"We can't keep telling the
kids that we gave away the
game [on turnovers] because
we're coming up on districts
now and we can't afford to
give away anymore games,"
Peacock said.


W GRADING THE INDIANS VS. W
r GOLDEN GATE V

Quarterbacks: B-

Sophomore Trey Burton went seven-of-13 for 146 yards
and an interception Friday. He also ran the ball for 60
yards, even after losing 24 yards on a high snap in the first
quarter. His first interception of the-season and his come-
back-killing fumble with less than rnipute in the fourth
quarter marred an otherwise great performance.
Running Backs: P

Senior Jimmy Laurie had his best game of the year after
fighting through a hip pointer the last couple of weeks. He
put up 115 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries. Seriior
Paul Costanzo, on the other hand, had his worst game of
the year. He gained just 11 yards on nine carries and
accounted for two Venice turnovers. Laurie lost the handle
once as well. A running back's primary objective is to hold
on to the football, and the Venice backs didn't do it.

Receivers: A
Senior Gerry Hunek had a big night, especially on the final
drive of the game. He racked up 119 yards receiving. The
receivers also vastly improved upon the previous week's
five-drop performance. If more receivers had touched the
ball, this might have been an A+.

Offensive Line: A-

The big uglies just don't get enough credit. The offensive
line opened up big holes for Laurie all night. They also gave
Burton plenty of time to throw the ball, preventing Golden
Gate from recording a sack. The only negative for the line
was a high snap that resulted in a 24-yard loss.
Defensive Line: B

'Once again the defensive line was nearly un-blockable..
Junior defensive end. Gerald Oriol recorded a sack and,
seven tackles with on tackle for loss Friday. The line held
Golden Gate to just 73 yards rushing. They did have some
trouble in short-yardage situations inside the 10 yard line,
though. Golden Gate quarterback Mike Spano found the
end zone on runs of one and two yards.

Linebackers: B

The linebackers get at least half of the credit for the out-
standing Venice run defense. Junior Ethan Mix had 11 tack-
les with two tackles for loss. When the Golden Gate backs
did break through the line, they were usually met by a line-
backer. The Titans only had three runs of 10 yards or more
and none of more than 15 yards.

Defensive Backs: B-
The Venice secondary played very well in the first half,
holding Spano to just five-of-12 for 42 yards. But the first
three pass plays of the second half yielded 54 yards. Hunek
came up with a big time interception inside the Venice 10,
but he also dropped on that probably would have been a
pick-six.
Special Teams: B

A bad snap on a Venice punt gave the Titans the ball at the
34 yard line. They moved the ball just five yards, and kicked
the go-ahead field goal from 45 yards. On the other side,
the Indian offense had to deal with difficult field position
for most of the night, making it hard to get into a rhythm.
On a positive note, the punt coverage unit did a good job of
containing Randall Jones.

Venice in second

The Venice High School
boys and girls golf teams
.placed third and second,
respectively, at the 14th An-
nual Donald Ross Memorial
Invitational Monday at Sara
Bay Country Club.
Only the private schools
participating in the 18-hole
event placed higher than the
Indians. Bradenton Prepar-
atory Academy finished first
for the boys, with The Out of
Door Academy placing sec-
ond. St. Stephens, Episcopal
School finished first in girls
play.
Leading the girls was Casey
Kennedy with a 75. Hers was
the second-best round of the
day out of all of the girl golfers.
Crystal Smith was second on
the team with an 83. As a
team, the Venice girls finished
with a 264, 30 strokes behind
first place and 19 strokes
ahead of third-place Manatee
High School.
"Casey played very well
and we played well as a team,"
girls coach Wayne Robertson
said. "It was a good day on a
tough course."
In boys action it was Tim-
my Garofalo out it front for
Venice with a 75, followed
closely by Billy Stevens with a
77. As a team, the boys shot a
317, just two strokes out of
second place and six strokes
out of first place.
Every golfer on the boys
team broke 90 on the day.
Spencer Dunford eagled the
par-five 18th at Sara Bay to
finish with an 82 and stay out


play, the Venice girls faced off
in the rain against Lemon Bay
High School and Manatee
Tuesday in a tri-match at
Mission Valley Cotuntry Club.
They scored a 188 to defeat
Manatee (203) and lose to
Lemon Bay (183).
Leading the girls once
again was Kennedy with three
birdies on the way to an even-
par 36. This time, her's was
the best round out of all of the
golfers.
Smith shot a bit higher
than normal, but still had the
second-best score on the

team with a 45. Rounding out
the scoring for the girls were
Seirra Rhodus with a 53 and
Gina Cassan with a 54.
"We're probably a few
strokes over where we would
like to be," Robertson said.
"But overall, not a bad day
considering rain and every-
thing else. I know that had to
be a pain at times so when
you throw that factor in there
it explains some things."

Bell tolls for Florida's no-fault insurance law


BY BOB FLISS
STAFF WRITER

Time has run out on
Florida's no-fault automobile
insurance law.
Monday marked the start
of a new era in Florida insur-
ance, in which it joins the
majority of other states in
having a fault-based system
in which it's ultimately up to
the courts to decide who's to
blame in an automobile crash
and to award damages.
Or it may be just a brief
detour until the Legislature
enacts something to, take the
place of the old no-fault law,
which had fallen into disfavor
for providing weak protection
against fraud.
Ultimately, it may have
been disgust over the amount
of fraudulent no-fault claims,
mainly for outpatient medical
care of often dubious effec-
tiveness, that led lawmakers
to give up on the old law. But
the Republican leadership of
both the Senate and House
attempted to draft some kind
of compromise bill until
Friday, wJien time ran out on
issuing a session order for the
legislative meeting that starts
Oct. 3.
The session will go ahead
, as originally planned to cut
$1 billion or more off the state


budget. Insurance was to be
discussed in committee
workshops Tuesday in both
houses, but Gov. Charlie Crist
officially put PIP on the agen-
da Monday.
Probably the biggest win-
ners from the transition are
uninsured Floridians who
were facing fines or loss of
their driver licenses. Whether
blatant scofflaws or working
poor unable to afford high
premiums, all will enjoy a
fresh start thanks to the expi-
ration of the 1972-vintage no-
fault law.
There are several interest
groups that would like to be
identified as the biggest
potential losers from the law's
sunset. Hospitals and health
insurers lobbied hard for
some kind of extension of no-
fault, fearing that the loss of
no-fault's mandatory $10,000
Personal Injury Protection
coverage would leave them
stuck with unpaid emergency
room bills.
Saving?
But at least in the short
run, an even better case can
be made that it's the auto
insurers themselves who
stand to lose the most, as they
already had to convert their
billing systems once to antici-
pate Monday's end of manda-


tory PIP coverage. And if the
Legislature eventually comes
up with a replacement for the
old law, insurers will have to
convert again. Ultimately,
those costs will get passed to
consumers.
Many insurers were al-
ready anticipating the end of
no-fault by early summer,
said Gary Landry, vice presi-
dent of the Florida Insurance
Council, a Tallahassee-based
industry association.
"All of those computer
changes take time and a lot of
effort and then you add
into that the cost of mailing
correspondence to policy-
holders," all those things add
up, Landry said.
The Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles waited until Sept. 20
to begin circulating a memo-
randum about how local dri-
ver's license offices should
deal with insurance verifica-


I.


-t


tion starting Oct. 1. Many
local offices didn't get this
notification until last week.
Although much of the doc-
ument is in technical lan-
guage, it does state that four
types of PIP cases would be
programmaticallyy closed,"
without any proof of insur-
ance or reinstatement fee.
However, existing laws re-
quiring property damage lia-
bility coverage will still be
enforced and license appli-
cants will have to produce
proof of this coverage.
"What happens is that with
the sunset of the PIP provi-
sions, the driving sanctions
that this department has
placed on drivers for non-
compliance will be eliminat-
ed," said Dave Westberry,
deputy executive director of
the Highway Safety depart-
ment's Division of Driver
Licenses.
"Effective Oct. 1, we no

longer have the ability to
enforce those sanctions. If
and when the Legislature
passes new legislation, it will
be incumbent upon us to
move forward with whatever
enforcement provisions that
law includes," he said.
That could be months
from now, so PIP violators
under the old law get a clean
slate.
Even if a new no-fault law
is passed, these drivers will be
required to comply only with
the new law, regardless of
what they might have done in
the past.
Options
Although the end of no-
fault after more than three
decades has made plenty of
news this year, life will go on
as usual for the vast majority
of drivers, according to local
independent insurance
agents.


"Basically all we can do is
explain to them what they are
losing in coverage and how
they can fill the gaps losing
PIP is going to create," said
Jim Nolan, president of Nolan
Family Insurance.
Bodily injury would take
the place of PIP in paying for
injuries to another party
when the policyholder is at
fault. However, this policy
does not cover a few things
that PIP did, mainly lost
wages following an accident.
Medical payments cover-
age covers medical expenses
to the policyholder arising
from an accident, even when
the person has private health
insurance or Medicare. In the
event of an accident, a claim
is filed first against the med-
ical payments coverage, then
against any other health
insurance.

BY DON BLAIR
CORRESPONDENT

SnI my youth we were surrounded
by a whole bunch of automobiles
that have long since joined the pass-
ing parade.
I'm, not talking about ancient
chariots such as Jack Benny's
wheezing old Maxwell but a later
generation that also utilized the
starting crank; had headlights
mounted on the fenders, not inside
them; still featured little push-out
front window vents; had windshield
wipers that were mounted atop the
windshield, not down in front in
some sort of well; and punished our
parents for not dutifully checking
their oil or water levels.
Windshield washers? Yeah, right

--that was the job of the kid (per-
haps yourself?) at the local gas sta-'
tion who also looked at the dipstick
and told you that you were down a
quart. That could mean another 25
cents added to the dollar's worth
pop just had put into the gas tank--
about 4 gallons or more.
When was the last time you
checked your oil?
How we kids would race to the re-
emerging new car showrooms after
the war to gaze and yearn and experi-
ence that incredible "new car smell."
Seat covers and (gadzooks) turn
signals so pop wouldn't have to roll
down his window to signal a turn.
Push-button starting, fluid drive
and a car that looked like it was
coming and going.
At least 18 automobiles made in
the United States have gone to that
great auto graveyard in the sky since
the end of World War II, including
some old-line favorites, borderline
enterprises and at least two cars that
were just plain adventurous.
Oldsmobile
Where to. start? How about
Oldsmobile? Not only was the Olds
the earliest of what I call the old-line
autos, it was also the most recent to
be put out to pasture.
Founded way back in 1897 by
Ransom E. Olds in Lansing, Mich.,
the company became part of
General Motors in 1908 and was
manufactured until 2004. In its 107-
year history 35.2 million Olds-
mobiles hit the road with at least 14
million of those being built at the
Lansing factory.
In the 1950s the company won
the devotion of countless buyers
when it introduced its Rocket V-8
engine. In later years the Olds 88 and
98 went on to become big best-sell-
ers, noted for their power and per-'
formance. By 1990 Oldsmobile had
been passed in preference by the
resurgent Pontiac and Buick divi-
sions of GM and the handwriting
was on the wall. In December 2000,


GM announced that the Olds would
be phased out, and some four years
later it was history.
Plymouth
Plymouth,. the low-price entry
from Chrysler Corporation, sprang'
to life in 1928 and was originally sold
exclusively through Chrysler dealer-
ships, although that dual-dealership
arrangement would also be found at
your neighborhood Dodge dealer.
It didn't take long for any of us
post-war whippersnappers to figure
out that the Dodge and Plymouth
were basically brothers under the
skin, with some fancier, heavier
chrome trim on the Dodge and
undoubtedly some additional
options that were not as physically
evident more powerful engines
being the most notable.


A restored 1965 Plymouth. The car line
was down to one model, the Neon,
when it stopped production in 2001.
The PT Cruiser was going to be a
Plymouth model, but came out under
the Chrysler label instead.

Plymouth was Walter Chrysler's
reworking of. the Maxwell (Jack
Benny's wheels) when he acquired
that struggling firm in the early
1920s. Plymouth cruised on for
decades but seemingly always in the
shadow of its bigger brothers (or sis-
ters if you prefer): Dodge, DeSoto
and, of course, Chrysler.
By the time the last Plymouth
rolled off the assembly line in late
June 2001, the only model left was


the tiny Neon. Plans for the soon-to-
be very successful PT Cruiser were
pulled back and given to Chrysler.
DeSoto
Let's stay with Chrysler for a
moment. Perhaps no other car
maker had divisions in which so
many models resembled each other,
with the radiator grille being the
biggest difference.
Plymouth, Dodge and DeSoto
epitomized those similarities and
the DeSoto was the fancy pants of
the trio. It was also the shortest lived,
born in 1928 and gone by 1961.
Sales of mid-priced cars were hit
hard by the economic downtown of
1958. DeSoto sales were 68 percent
lower that year than the year before.
The rumors of DeSoto's demise
began and by 1961 DeSoto did not
even have a model name for its last
year in the game.
, Overproduction led to over-
stocked dealerships, and new cars
were being sold at a loss by dealers
eager to be rid of them. Not a happy
ending. '
Packard
The second-oldest of these old
American favorites was the impres-
sive Packard, a longtime competitor
of Cadillac.
Born to the road in. 1899, various
Packard models, especially the con-
vertibles, would go on to become
top favorites of some of Hollywood's
biggest stars and even heads of state.
Clark Gable seemed to be made to
drive, one.
That is but one reason why clas-
sic Packards are highly sought after
by collectors today. They were bold
and brassy, but I don't mean to
imply that there was any brass trim.
While Henry Ford was still turning
out cars that could be had for $440,
Packard busied itself building
upscale cars that started at $2,600.
The post-war period proved fick-
le for the auto industry, and the crit-
ics were less than kind to the new


Packards. By 1951 the seller's market
that flourished starting in 1946 had
begun to fade. Packards were vilified
for their sameness.
Looking for renewed financial
stability, Packard flirted first with
Kaiser-Willys (the Jeep folks) and in
late 1954 cast their fate with another
struggler Studebaker, although
that company's ailing finances were
not all that evident at the time of the
merger.
Packard's first V-8 engine in 1955
did boost sales but shoddy work-
manship would signal the begin-
ning of the end.
Studebaker, with problems of its
own, pulled the Packard nameplate
as 1958 came to an end.
Hudson
Thp oldest of the four once well-

deal with today was the Hudson -
perhaps the only car named for a
department store.
The founder of Hudson's
Department Store in Detroit came
up with the necessary capital and
the first Hudson rolled out in 1909;
.By 1929 Hudson was surpassed in
production only by Ford and
Chevrolet, with 300,000 cars turned
out but that figure included the
Essex automobile and contributions
from Hudson's other factories in.,
Belgium arid England.
The companywas first with dash-
board oil pressure and generator
warning lights and the first balanced
crankshaft, which allowed the com-
pany's efficient straight-6 engine. -
By 1932 the company had done
away with the Essex name and
introduced the Terraplane in -iti
place. Hudsons would take on a very
distinctive rounded look in- the
1930s very different from the still
boxy look of much of the competi-
tion.
The first post-war Hudsons had a
distinctive grille that, for some rea-

recently listed among the top
10 ghost story writers in the
world.
He has been a speaker at

Hunters Alliance conventions
in Gettysburg, Pa. and has
appeared on the History
Channel, MTV and the Travel


Channel. He resides in Read-

morning radio show on
WEEU, writes for the Reading
Eagle and last year organized
the month-long reading festi-
val, Reading Reads, which
runs this month in Reading,
should you be up that way.
His book, "Bucks County
Ghost Stories" was used as a
prop in the 2002 movie,
"Signs," which starred Mel
Gibson. Look for it on the cof-
fee table.
Active in the civic affairs of
Berks County, he also is an
ardent baseball fan who, dur-
ing the season, can be found
in his box behind home plate
at most games of the Reading
Phillies.

And now


... The News from Ecineville


BY TED RANK
STAFF ESCRITOR

Hang on to your sanity,
ladies and gentlemen. It's
time for News from Ecine-
ville.
Big news from the Blah
Blah Blah Corporation. The
BBBC television network
announced this week a new
talk show: "The LookElou."
This original show will
feature four of the BBBC'S
top women hosts joining
together for an hour of talk
on local issues, the social
scene in Richarora County
and the hosts' opinions on
everything from Iraq to
whether we should elimi-
nate the penny from U.S.
currency (or is it eliminate


penny loafers from U.S. shoe
stores? I forget.)
And the hosts are the best
women -the BBBC has to
offer.
From "Eee on Ecineville,"
Host Eee Ester Ellen Engle;
from "Ecineville Views,"
Ecineville Public Informa-
tion Officer and Host Pamela
Anderson; from her new
show "Cop Shop," new
Ecineville Police Depart-
ment Public Information
Officer and Host Courtney
Cox; and from the Ecineville
Sun, our very own Cairo
bureau chief Susan Abu
Dhabi (Abu Dhabi is back in
the U.S. after Ecineville Sun
parent company Sunny Side
Media Group and Grouper
Fishing Industries United


Inc. closed our overseas
bureaus in Cairo, Egypt, and
Alexandrovsk-Sakhalinsky in
Sakhalin Oblast, Russia.)
The BBBC screened the
first show for area media
Monday and, if future shows
are anything like the pilot,
we are all in for a treat.
The show's host and se-
nior correspondent for the
BBBC, Eee Engle, introduced
the format of the new show
by calling it a "no-holds-
barred dialogue between
some of Richarora County's
smartest women. An infor-
mative and entertaining look
at the world through our
eyes and minds. We hope
you'll enjoy our bright ideas
and wonderful comedy."
It was difficult to find con-


sensus among the assem-
bled media who viewed the
pilot in the BBBC studios on
which moment was the
highlight of the pilot, but all
agreed it was a close choice
between when Abu Dhabi
called Engle a "b$^&%" and
when Anderson grabbed a
big handful of Cox's hair and
threw her to the floor.
"We understand that to
have a successful talk show
nowadays, it is necessary to
combine sex, violence, dis-
gusting guests, racism and
sexism, ugly people, unac-
ceptable body sounds and,
of course, a panel of hostile,
outspoken hosts to hold an
audience for our advertisers
- and that's exactly what we
intend to do every day," said


BBBC spokesperson Ed A.
Vertorial.
Cox, who was uninjured,
will, according to Vertorial,
have on a future show pro-
fessional woman wrestler
and karate expert Linda "The
Hog" Hollingham, Ladies
Professional Wrestling As-
sociation world champion.
Hollingham will show Cox a
few moves she can use on
Anderson.
The pilot did have a guest,
local BBBC cooking expert
Cindi O'Reilly. She was pre-
paring crepes suzette.
"Look, I've already told
you people once, she's fine,
she was treated and released
from the hospital and other
than having to replace some
backdrop curtains and fan


out the smoke, we continued
filming within two hours,"
saidVertorial.
"The LookElou" airs daily
at 10 a.m. on BBBC 4.
This is a TVViiiVooodo
must.
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, "KILL YOUR TV"
bumper stickers are still
available for purchase at
Mike's Emporium: Home of
the Dancing Fleas by calling
(666) 555-MIKE. They're in
Sparkleburgh, Pa., not here
in Ecineville.

Trees are of such
great value. They are
not only beautiful in
the landscape, but, as
we know, they use
carbon dioxide from
the, air and release
oxygen. These are
both important attri-
butes, but trees also
provide heat-reliev-
ing shade.
Planting a proper
shade tree in an
appropriate location


on the southwest and west sides of your
home can help reduce afternoon heat
generated by the
sun. This will help
reduce the load on
your air condition-
er. It is often sug-
gested the tree
selected be of the
deciduous (loses
leaves in winter)
variety. This allows
the sun's rays to
help warm your
home during the
winter months.
The planet -
it's worth saving.

MEET EMMA
STORY AND PHOTOS COURTESY OF EARS


Emma is a survivor! Her owners were
evicted from their home and left Emma
behind, pre-
gnant, hun-
gry and
frightened.
She was
taken to an
Englewood
Animal Res-
,cue Sanc-
tuary foster
home,
where she
delivered
her babies.
Emma is
not much
more than a
baby her-
self, since
the vet
guesses her
to be only 1
year old. Emma's foster family owns two
Siamese cats, and they observed the delivery
of each of her babies. From the time her kit-
tens were born, Emma allowed each of those


I -"4


cats to care for her babies. Whenever she left
the bathtub where she had a nest for her
babies, one of
the Siamese ,
cats would
take her place
and gently
bathe each
S baby. It is,
unusual for a
mama cat to
allow such
behavior.
Emma is a
affectionate,
sweet and vo-
cal kitty, and
she gets along
V 6 wellwithdogs,
other cats and
children. Her
Babies will be
weaned soon,
and Emma will be spayed and be available
for adoption.
Call EARS at 475-0636 to see Emma or her
babies.

CARS from Page 1B,


son, made some of us kids
think that it'would be a good
place to fry an egg. By 1948
the company had launched
its step-down bodies. Passen-
gers would step down into a'
floor that was encased in the
car's frame. It would win
praise for safety, comfort and
handling.
Automotive authority Rich-
ard Langworth would pro-
nounce those early models as
among the greatest cars of the
era. Unlike the Big Three
automakers, smaller compa-
nies such as Hudson could
not innovate as often and it
definitely affected sales
throughout the 1950s.
As Packard had to seek out
a partner, Hudson, too, was
ready for help. The result was
its acquisition by Nash-
Kelvinator in 1954 and the
resulting merger created
American Motors.
Cars from both companies
began sharing a platform, a
significant cost-saving tech-


nique the Big Three had intro-
duced. In 1955 Hudson was
offering a Packard-built V-8
' engine and Packard automat-
ic transmission but the lights
went out on the Kenosha,
Wis., assembly line on June
25, 1957.
To be continued...
Don Blair, a longtime radio
and TV correspondent, is the
author of "Splashdown! NASA
and the Navy." He lives in the
Venice area.

The life and times of a Klingon


JOE GIORGIANNI
HUMOR COLUMNIST

Each year my wife attends
a workshop as member of the
International Nature Printing
Society. This group meets in
different parts of -the world


An tarh ,&


that include both coasts of
the United States.
One particular year, which
just happened to be the first
year that I was asked to tag
along as a "Klingon," I had no
idea what to expect. I had
envisioned, however, that
being a society affiliated with
nature, I would find many
artists painting in the buff.
Sort of like a nudist colony
with brushes. -
I can tell you that is not
what I observed, much to my
chagrin. What I did find was a
group of very serious folks,
many who had traveled thou-
sands of miles, who came to
print, ponder, press, pound


Svyndicited


and polish things that I would
have thrown away years, ago.
Things like dead leaves and
flowers, grotesque fish, floun-
der and fossils. Yet, these very
serious, fun-loving people get
together every year, some
place in this great country, to
further enhance their talents.
As a "Klingon," it is imper-
ative to find something to do
during the day besides eat
and wander around the cam-
pus looking like a lost liquor
salesman at a church retreat,
as those who have signed on
to take classes, typically the
female spouses, are in class-
rooms scattered throughout
the campus wherever the


MaterialPI ,,-s
if 0 1 so ft -


conference is held. This usu-
ally is a college that offers
some type of marine pro-
gram, as fish and marine life
play a big part in the curricu-
lum of the society.
The most recent confer-
ence took place in Bar Har-
bor, Maine, at the College of
the Atlantic. This is a small
but very neat college that
offers but one degree, which
is a bachelor of arts in human
ecology. When I inquired as to
what human ecology was all
about, I was told that it is sim-
ply learning how better to
interface with the world. I

KLINGON from Page 5B


know a whole lot of people
who would do well to attend
this school.
However, being bored most
of the time, I decided to offer
my services and infinite knowl-
edge of drinking by setting up
the hospitality bar each eve-
ning. My offer was instantly
accepted and, in fact, it was
kind of a fun thing to do,
enabling me to meet all those
who were in attendance. Well,
at least those who drank.
What I didn't realize was
that in the state of Maine,
there is a bounty, if you will,
on all bottles and cans. So,

just the same.
And last, when it's time to
stay inside and reflect a little,
it's best to remember the good
times. You can do that with
"The Rock 'n' Roll Age" by
Mike Evans (2007, Reader's
Digest, $32.95). This big beau-
tiful book is pictures and sto-
ries, but surprisingly not
just about music. You'll also
find lots of pop-culture histo-
ry, world history, and some
things that will take you back.
Like, groovy, baby.


each evening, I donned my
"bagman's" hat and gathered
all the empties while taking
inventory of what wine and
beer was left. Then, the next
day I made a pilgrimage to
the local grocery store to pur-
chase more wine and beer for
the next evening's social hour.
The checkout lady at the
grocery store is certain that I
am the biggest lush that ever
stepped foot in her store, as
each day I purchased beer
and wine totaling more than
$100. Yes, these folks can con-
sume some booze.
I suppose it is fair to say


that some people simply
drink more than others and
that's OK, as social libations
have always been a part of
social interaction. It would've
been fun, however, to see
what their work would have
looked like had the social
hour been held before start-
ing the daily sessions instead
of the end of the day.
As a "Klingon," there are
certain other duties that must
be fulfilled, such a laundry.
Now, a Martha Stewart wan-
nabe I am not. But, in as
much as my wife was in class
all day, and if I desired clean
underwear, I had to tackle the

dastardly job of washing
clothes.
. The first thing I did, of
course, 'was to throw the
clothes into the washing ma-
chine made available at the
college. Now, I was not aware
that whites* should not be
washed with things of color,
and I'm certain that in time
I'll get used to wearing pink
jockey shorts. I just hope that
the guys down at the gym
won't snicker when I'm in the
locker room.
Then, I never realized how
concentrated liquid soap
could be. A half a cap full.
hardly seemed sufficient, so I


doubled the amount, and
then threw in another half a
cap for good measure. I'm
betting the floor in that laun-
dry room has never been as
clean as it was the day I did
the laundry.
I suppose I should also
mention that when a dryer
has a setting for "hot," it
should not be used to dry
things that have labels read-


ing "dry on cool setting only."
Perhaps I should have read
the labels first, but I think my
granddaughter will enjoy
wearing what had fit my wife
before I did the laundry.
Will I ever attend another
Nature Printing gathering? I
suppose so, but if I do, I can
tell you, I won't be wearing
underwear.

Summerville

celebrates

local health

care workers

Julie Podewitz, director of
community relations, and
Megan Pletcher; executive
director of Summerville As-
sisted Living Facility in Venice,
decided to celebrate local
physicians and health care
workers with a lovely party
They wanted to make sure
the event packed a punch,
and it did. Chef Steve
Rakoczy provided delicious
hors d'oeuvres including
salmon on crackers, beef and
mushroom stuffed pastry. He
included luscious fruit and
cheese trays covered with edi-
ble flowers. Jewell Walker
helped serve and made sure
the flowers were placed per-
fectly to make a picture-per-
fect presentation.
Clarence Brown and his
Caribbean Sounds put every-
one in a dancing mood. He
even performed a steel drum
version of the "Hokey Pokey."
Among the first, to arrive
were Dr. Tom and Kay Foy.
Michelle Ryan from the Ven-
ice Area Chamber of Com-
merce looked super with her
new hairstyle. Any party gets
better when she shows up.
Health care facilities and
workers sampled the popular
Summer Splash. Cheri Har-
mon kept busy making the
popular drink served in mar-
tini glasses.
Melissa A. Heath and Kip
DeBellevue from Tidewell
Hospice and Palliative Care
seemed to enjoy visiting with
friends, as did Michelle Mc-
Carthy from Englewood
Health and Rehab and Rich
Lacko from A. Better Solu-
tions of Venice.
The party celebrated peo-
ple who deserve a pat on the
back for the work they do.
Bravo, Summerville, for rec-
ognizing them.
Mark the date
This Friday; Oct. 5, be sure
to join neighbors and friends
at the Venice Art Center for
the reception celebrating the
Members Fall Exhibit. The
event begins at 4 p.m. with
awards at 5 p.m.
This member's exhibit
brings together local artists
including the dynamic trio of
Bill Farnsworth, Hodges
Soileau and Jeff Cornell.
Among the other members
are Andre Schroeder, Ann
Dodderidge, Heather McCul-
lough, KarenHitt and Char-
ley Cooney.
The reception includes
delicious food and drinks that
are available for a voluntary
donation. This show gives
locals a chance to celebrate
the artists before the big
crowds start appearing when
the weather gets a little brisk
up North.
You can pick up a schedule
of classes offered by the
Venice Art Center and a list of
its 2007-2008 exhibition
schedule.
The Venice Art Center is
located at 390 S. Nokomis Ave.
Call 485-7136.
One of our best
The special person of this
week is Michelle Ryan. This
young woman works at the
Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce. Her dedication to
giving under-40 citizens in
Venice a platform and a voice
warms the heart. She grew up
in Venice and now serves as
an active member of the com-
munity.
