Sharky's topic of shade meeting


The city wants to hold
a shade meeting with
Sharky's On The Pier
owners to clear the air
and hopefully settle a
new contract.

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Venice City Attorney Bob
Anderson will make a request
on Oct. 9 to schedule a
"shade" meeting between city
council and the Pier Group,
which owns Sharky's On The
Pier restaurant.
Florida's open government
Sunshine Law generally re-
quires city government meet-
ings be held in the public eye,
but allows meetings "in the
shade" to discuss litigation.
The Pier Group is eager to
expand the restaurant, which
is on property leased from the
city, but city officials heldup
the expansion until a new
lease could be negotiated.
Two mediation sessions
had the parties close to mak-
ing a deal, but it hasn't been
finalized, and the Pier Group's
refusal to sign off on the city's
tentative deal indicates there's
still some negotiating to be
done.

Date set for city short-term rental appeal


Venice City Council is trying to get comfortable
in its role as judge and jury in a city appeal of
a planning commission decision.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


A date has finally been set
to hear an appeal by the city
over controversial short-term
rentals.
Venice City Council will sit


as judge and jury Dec. 11 in a
case that began two years
ago.
The ruling is expected to
have far-reaching implica-
tions that have to do with
property rights and the char-
acter of Venice's residential


neighborhoods.
Some fear that a victory on
the part of house rental advo-
cates could turn Venice into
another Anna Maria Island,
where the majority of homes
are rented out to tourists.
The key question being
decided is: Are short-term
rentals in residential neigh-
borhoods legal in Venice?
It will be a "de novo" hear-
ing, meaning city council will


consider all new information
to make its decision.
A city planning commis-
sion decision overturned
zoning staff's administrative
ruling in August 2006 that
would have banned short-
term home rentals as a year-
round business.
In that ruling, city Plan-
ning Director Tom Slaughter
found the short-term rentals
operated by Jacksonville resi-,


dent Stephen Milo, who rents
out dozens of homes in the
area, were not legal inVenice's'
residential neighborhoods.
Milo's attorney appealed
the case to the planning com-
mission, which overturned
Slaughter's decision.
The city is appealing the
planning commission's deci-
sion.

10 for



retiring


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


Venice has received recog-
nition by a leading national
magazine as one of the top 10
great retirement spots in the
United States.
Two thousand cities across
the country were considered
by U.S. News & World Report
writers. A "short" list of 1,000
was pared down to the top 10
retirement spots.
The selection was based
upon the cost. of living, cli-
mate, crime rate, access to
healthcare, educational op-
portunities, cultural and rec-
reational amenities.
U.S. News writer David
LaGesse paints a glowing pic-
ture of Venice describing his
visit as feeling a little bit like
slipping back to an earlier
America. The city was de-
sighed to recreate the atmos-
phere of a traditional small
town, specifically for retirees.

'ent Paul Cline:/'You can

doctors, whatever."
He and his wife were
drawn to Venice's cozy design,
which emphasizes a mix of
housing close to shops and
services, undeveloped beach-
es, neighborhood parks and,
unusual for Florida, side-
walks.

siders themselves aVenetian,"

Nokomis pavilion restoration will soon break ground


We love Venice because ...


Sarasota architect Jack West designed the facility
in 1954 and is overseeing its restoration. A $1.3
million contract for the work will be paid in part
by grants that total $490,000.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS


Sometimes it is possible to
turn back the clock and re-
capture a little bit of the past.
A Sarasota County project
to restore the Nokomis Beach
pavilion near the south end of
Casey Key is one of those rare
opportunities that should be
fun to watch.
On Sept. 11, after a fuss
over bids from contractors,
the county commission final-
ly agreed to spend $1.3 mil-
lion for a long list of items that
include improved restrooms,
new landscaping and light-
ing, paved parking, sidewalks,
a dune walkover and a deco-
rative fountain.
The work 'designed by
Sarasota architect Jack West
will mirror a lot of the original
site plan he created in 1954
when the pavilion was built,
and replace some walls in
their original location so a

community room can be,
added that will accommodate
up to 40 people.
The fuss over bids was ini-
tiated by Sarasota County
Commission Chair Nora Pat-
terson, who noted the Howell
Construction Group will
actually receive more money
for the project list and an
optional railing than the
company listed as the run-
ner-up, Gilbert Brothers.
In fact, the combined fig-
ures produced by county pro-
curement officials for the
commission's consideration
indicated Howell Construc-
tion will receive $1,330,033,
while Gilbert:Brothers would
have done the entire job for
$1,283,986.20.
"I'd like to hear from our
staff about why the base bid
and option were not com-
bined to produce a low bid,"
Patterson asked. "The way we
did this does not result in the
contract going to the lowbid-

der. We need to have a discus-
sion about low bids."
Dale Roberts, the county's
general services director, at-
tempted to explain why there
are several ways to seek bids
from contractors, among
them "a back bid" and "cou-
pling options." Patterson was
not convinced and voted
against the award to Howell
Construction.
The firm has previously
restored the historic Venice
Train Depot and Sarasota
Water Works, which may help
explain why county officials
chose to identify it as the low
bidder. When a county build-
ing permit is issued, it will
have nine months to get the
job done.
A Nokomis Beach pavilion
restoration project has been
creeping through the county
bureaucracy for almost four
years.
Several factors have
slowed the process, among
them the issuance of a coastal
construction control line per-
mit by the state.
Delays
"It took one and a half
years to pull the permits to-
gether," said Rob LaDue, a


county. project manager.
"We've also had to deal with
the issue of building new
columns during the hurri-
cane season. They will be
done column by column with
cement that cures in three
days instead of 30."
The project is unique for
another obvious reason. West
designed the original struc-
ture in 1954, and he is still
available to play a key role in
its restoration.
"I hung my shingle out in
1951 and got to work in '52,"
he recalled last spring.
"Nokomis Beach Plaza was
the first project I did that was-
n't a house. It was 100 by 100
feet with a fountain, bath
houses, dressing rooms and
hand painted murals. What
we're going to do is recreate
the original structure and
exterior almost as it was in
'54."
The pavilion is situated at
the west end of Albee Road
immediately across from the
Intracoastal Waterway. It is a
popular gathering place for
Casey Key and mid-county
residents, plus visitors who
occupy a row of nearby mo-
tels that also date back many
years.

Candidate forums set
The Venice Area Board of
Realtors is hosting the election
season's first public forum for
Venice City Council candi-
dates on Monday, Oct. 8, at 6
p.m. The forum will take place
at the VABR office, 680
Substation Road in Venice.
The questioning will be con-
ducted by the VABR political
affairs committee. The event is
open to the public.
The Venice Area Chamber
of Commerce holds its candi-
4date forum Tuesday, Oct. 9, at

The event is open to cham-

Members will submit their
questions in, writing to cham-
ber president John Ryan, who
will then moderate the ques-
tioning.
Blood supply critical
Unseasonably low dona-
tions are resulting in alarming
dips in the local blood supply.
All blood types are needed and
Florida's Blood Centers is call-
ing out the general public to
come in and donate as soon as
possible.
There could be many rea-


sons for the low supply.
According to Elaine David-
son, FBC donor development
coordinator, a recent study
suggested that the eligible
donor pool that was once
thought to be about 60 per-
cent is actually more like 37
percent.
This new statistic is indica-
tive of a shrinking donor pool
and a true concern to area
blood banks.
'All donations stay in our
community to help save lives,"
said Davidson. "Any person
who donates blood is giving
life to those who need transfu-
sions for surgeries and emer-
gencies. One donation can
save up to three lives once it is
separated into its three com-
ponents."
Florida's Blood Centers
serves local hospitals by sup-
plying them with a safe and
adequate blood supply.

FBC at 492-9202.

School district hires new CFO


Manatee Community College

trustees hear public input


BY COURTNEY LINN
STAFF WRITER

After months of search-
ing, the Sarasota County
School district finally has a
chief financial officer -
almost.
At the Oct. 2 board meet-
ing, board members voted to
approve the hiring of Mitsi
Corcoran.
Corcoran replaces Bruce
Monson, who retired from
the district early this year. She
will be leaving a position
directly under the CFO of the
Sarasota County finance
department, making her
transition from the county
late this month.
Board members and Su-
perintendent Gary Norris
were pleased with the selec-
tion of Corcoran.
"I'm excited we found a
capable and talented individ-
ual in Mitsi," Norris said. "She
has kids in our district, and
she has viewed our system
from the parent side. That
gives her a tremendous sense
of the importance of our mis-
sion."
"I think this is a great hire,"
Board Vice Chair Kathy Klein-
lein said.
"I was comfortable she was
the right person," Board Chair
Frank Kovach said.


Problems
The hiring of Corcoran
didn't happen without a few
hitches.
The original solicitation
and job description for the
CFO position listed a master's
degree as a requirement.
Corcoran doesn't have one.
Norris decided her CPA cer-
tificate would suffice for a
master's degree without the
school board voting to
change the job description.
The board members have
to vote on the job description
of each employee in the dis-
trict. They also vote on every
new hire, usually under their
consent agenda, which typi-
cally contains a variety of
items.
Board members addressed
the issue Sept. 28 and voted 3-
1, with Board Member Car-
oline Zucker voting no, to
approve Norris' decision.
(Board Member Shirley Brown
was absent.)
Reaction
Zucker was upset at the
way the process was handled.
She said she didn't think it
was right for the board mem-
bers to substitute a master's
degree qualification without
voting to change the job de-
scription.
In addition to voting


against hiring Corcoran,
Zucker requested staff look
into new ways of handling
upper management new
hires, such as for the CFO
position.
Upper management new
hires should all be handled by
an individual vote and not
-through the consent agenda,
she said.
She said she wants the
method of changing job de-
scription requirements dur-
ing the hiring process re-
viewed as well.
"When I am frustrated
with something, most times it
is because of the process,"
Zucker said.
Board member Carol Todd
agreed with Zucker that the
hiring process was flawed.
"If we don't have good pro-
cesses in place, we will not
have valid results," Todd said.
Todd said the district knew
about Monson's retirement
for five years, and she thought
that was ample time to find a
replacement.
However, the CFO position
has been vacant for most of
the year.
"I'm very concerned that
we're not pro-active," Todd
said.
Despite the process issue,
Todd voted to hire Corcoran.
"I voted for (Corcoran) be-


cause the person is qualified,"
she said. "I would not vote for
someone if I didn't think that
person was qualified."
Kovach didn't think the
process was as important as
getting the right person in for
the job, and he took into con-
sideration the impending
2008-09 budgets that need to
be started.
"The result is more impor-
tant than the process," he said
"It was time to move for-
ward."
Kleinlein agreed.
"The people are more
important than the process,"
she said. "If you only look at
academic requirements, you
could miss some excellent
people."
'Preferred'
Norris said he would
change the way upper man-
agement is hired, if given
direction from the the major-
ity of board members.
The mistake, if there was
one, Norris said, was in the
creation of the job descrip-
tion.
"When we look for people
with multiple talents," he
said, "we should use the word
'preferred.'"

The search for a new presi-
dent of Manatee Community
College is under way.
The MCC board of trustees
held a public forum Wednes-
day at the Venice campus to
get feedback from the com-
munity as to what to look for
in candidates to replace the
retiring Sarah Pappas.
After presenting a detailed
list of MCC's future chal-
lenges, such as growth and
budget cuts, the trustees
opened up the floor to the
public.
A group of roughly 15 peo-
ple, composed mostly of
MCC administrative person-
nel as well as some members
of the community, showed up
and provided feedback.
Participants had a number
of requests of the board, cre-
ating a sort of wish list of dif-
ferent needs.
Former MCC Venice Cam-
pus Executive Officer Jim
Woods said the ability to raise
funds for the school is critical.
"The new president must
get out there, shake hands
and ask for money," he said.
MCC Director of Human
Resources Peg Beck ,wants
someone to mirror the diver-


sity of MCC's population.
Public Relations Director
Kathy Walker said, "I would
like to see someone who is
energetic. This is not some-
one ready for early retire-
ment."
The group could not agree
on whether they wanted the
candidate to have a doctor-
ate.
Sue Clayton, MCC's head
librarian, said she preferred
the doctorate.
However, Mike Bigner of
Gulf Coast Community Foun-
dation of Venice said, "I think
experience outweighs de-
gree."
The trustees will ultimately
write the advertisement for
applicants and be the ones to
hire.
Board Chair Steve Harner
said the search process would
take approximately the re-
mainder of current MCC
President Sarah Pappas' ten-
ure, which ends June 30, 2008.
There will be another for-
um at the MCC Bradenton
campus Oct. 9, 5-7 p.m.

OUR VIEW


You've got to know when to hold 'em


he Sarasota County Commissioners
reluctantly passed up a small raise
recently even though they feel they
are worth much more than the $77,000 we
pay them each year.
The decision was the right one in a year of
.budget upheaval leading to layoffs, project
delays and program cuts. In the corporate
world executives often get big bonuses for
such downsizing; at this level, turning down
the nearly token raise ($77,000 is a lot of
money) was symbolic, but a good move
nonetheless.
And the decision might have been a little
easier after they got played like a Strada-
varius by Sheriff Bill Balkwill the day before
they voted on the raise.
To comply with a state-mandated budget
roll-back, the commissioners told Balkwill
to come in with a budget no higher than last
year's.
That set the stage for a showdown. Every
year he's been in office, Balkwill has asked


for a bigger bump in his revenue than pretty
much any other county department. He has
usually settled for less than he asked for, but
has always gotten a big increase.
In addition to having precedent on his
side, Balkwill had two other bullets in his
sidearm. First, as a constitutional officer, he
gets funded by the county commission but
is not actually under its control. If there's a
real dispute about his budget, the governor
settles it.
Second, coming into the budgeting pro-
cess he had already announced his retirement
when his term expires in 2009. As a lame duck,
he had even less to lose than usual.
So county taxpayers were treated to a
game of budgetary chicken, with Balkwill
claiming the only way he could keep his
budget flat was to close the South County
Jail, saving about $720,000. (Somehow the
amount to run the jail then grew to more
than $1 million in just a couple of months.)
Faced with Balkwill's intransigence and a


contingent of angry citizens, mostly from
North Port, demanding the jail stay open,
the county commissioners did what politi-
cians, not leaders, do they caved in.
Balkwill pledged to work with County
Administrator Jim Ley to find additional sav-
ings and offered to cut a few pennies here
and there, but the county's 2007-08 budget
has the funds to keep the jail open (minus
$100,000 taken from the sheriff to help fund
the Talking Books Library in Bradenton.
Commissioner Shannon Staub, who consid-
ered and rejected a run for sheriff, gave
Balkwill that parting gift for refusing to take
his budget-cutting medicine.)
Now, we don't know the economics of
keeping the jail open, though it certainly will
make life easier for South County law
enforcement officers who might have had to
transport prisoners to Sarasota. But there
was a principle here worth fighting over:
namely, whether the sheriff's budget is
exempt from the sort of scrutiny given the


rest of the county's finances.
Public safety is something taxpayers are
always willing to spend money on, but that
shouldn't mean public safety departments
don't have to make sacrifices when money is
tight. Must-have items should be off-limits,
but that's all. Balkwill always saw everything
as a must-have.
We don't necessarily want infighting
among our government agencies, but this
would have been a goodyear to take Balkwill
on. Top to bottom, the state has been in a
cutting mood, and he might not have fared
as well with the governor as he thought. We'll
never know, because the commission failed
to call his bluff.
Balkwill has one.more budget to submit
before retirement. While we can appreciate
his protective attitude toward his depart-
ment, we hope he decides to go out on a
high note and hands over to his successor a
lean, mean department with a lean, mean
budget.


Excuses, excuses


MARY KAY RUPPEL
|COLUMNIST


The Atkins diet has sup-
posedly helped many people
lose weight. Because I have
lost more than 5 pounds in
less than a month, I am intro-
ducing my plan, which I've
pmred the "Mr.,-Maney piet,"
It's very easy. Three to four
times a day you are pulled on
a leash held in one hand while
the other hand is wearing a
plastic garbage bag. Snacking
is virtually eliminated on this
diet because if my weight
trainer, Mr. Maney, even hears
the suggestion of a bag crack-
ling or the fridge opening, he
is right there at my feet look-
ing up at me.
The Maney diet keeps you
quite active all day and some-
times through the night. Say
I'm reading or watching TV,
or, God forbid, sleeping ]he
will walk up to me with a
chewed-up electrical cord
and his hair standing on end,
which he knows will definitely
get me out of a prone posi-
tion.
Enough on the diet, let's
talk of more "weighty" mat-
ters.
The paunchiness that
Britney Spears was sporting at
her "comeback" performance
on the MTV Awards show
seems to me to be the least of
her problems. It wasn't what
was added to Britney, it is
what was lacking talent.
She appeared to be out of it.
One of the "excuses" being
used for frequent photos of
her in various stages of im-
pairment and nudity is "post-
partum depression." How-
ever, her keeping just one step
ahead of the little men in the
white coats doesn't concern
me as much as the safety of
her two sons. Somebody,
please get those two little sons
away from her before real dis-
aster strikes.
Less-than-commendable
behavior is something that
has happened to all of us
upon occasion, so we mustn't
be too quick to leap to judg-
ment. Do you agree with me,
though, that when we do
screw up, it's definitely better


not to make excuses? I like the
philosophy of "don't com-
plain and don't explain" -
just shape up.
Paraphrasing Mallard Fill-
more on excuses: "Hey, may-
be some women I knew died
under mysterious circum-
stances, and maybe I took
bribes and kept the money in
my freezer, and ran a male-
prostitution ring out of my
townhouse and lied under
oath. But at least I didn't tap
my foot in an airport bath-
room!"
I wonder what excuse Sally
Fields will make for her sud-
den loss of memory on the
Emmy Awards. Maybe she'll
say she accidentally took her
monthly arthritis pill instead
of her memory pill.
Anyway, she was so thrilled
at winning an award that she
decided to speak out against
the war, but then couldn't
remember what she wanted
to say, so she finally said, "G-
d-- it, if women ran the
world we wouldn't have
wars."
You know, in a way she's
right. Women are the nurtur-
ers and men the warriors -
vive la difference! On the
other hand, George Washing-
ton fought nine major battles
in the Revolutionary War. He
lost six of these battles, but
won the war. Could Martha
have done that?
Please pardon me for try-
ing to cover so many weighty
matters, but variety is the
spice of life.
I have always felt that a
lovely Gulf-front hotel would
be perfect for Venice. Why
should visitors have to travel
up to Sarasota to enjoy decent
waterfront accommodations?
But somebody please tell me
what is a "Tra Ponti."
From my limited Italian-
speak, I think that "tre" is
three and "Ponte" is bridge. So
maybe it means Three Bridg-
es. However, its description as
a hotel-condo has everyone
puzzled. It might simplify
matters to think of it as a
timeshare, where the owner
shares his condo and the visi-
tor shares his money.
To tie this piece into some
semblance of order, let me say
that he who really wants to do
something finds a way; the
other man finds an excuse.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Penny projects well documented


Editor:
I would like to assure residents that all of the projects that
would be supported by the penny surtax extension have been
thoroughly reviewed and compiled in a comprehensive list. A
recent letter to the editor, "We need the shopping list," (Sunday,
Sept. 30) called for the list and the cost of each project to be
made public.
A citizens' committee met for four months and held sixpub-
lic meetings to get input on projects for the surtax extension. A
proposed project list was compiled by Sarasota County and the
school board, and by each municipality that receives funds
from the penny sales tax: Venice, North Port, Sarasota and
Longboat Key. The final list of projects was documented in an
ordinance approved by the Sarasota County Commission at a
public hearing.
The complete project book is available in libraries and on
the county'sWeb site, www.scgov.net. Visitors to the site should
click on the "Common Cents" button at the bottom of the page.
To assure accountability and confidence that sales tax rev-
enue is spent as promised, an oversight committee of county
residents regularly reviews the revenue records and reports to
the community on how the money is used.
It's also important for residents to remember that visitors to
our county contribute about a third of the money. That helps
shift the impact from residents and helps make up for revenue
cuts from the state and federal governments.
On Nov. 6, residents have an opportunity to extend the
penny sales tax to support public projects that will continue to
enhance our quality of life.

Let the Middle
East change
Editor:
Does the number of letters
denigrating America and
blaming us for despotic
mass-murdering terrorists
bother no one else?
A recent piece titled,
'America needs to re-exam-
ine its Middle East policy,"
blames Israel and us for al-
Qaida and terrorism. I dis-
agree. The Middle East and
many other places need to
reexamine themselves, the


way they live and the way
they treat us.
Here's why: It is America
building schools, opening
hospitals and polling places
and spending billions giving
Iraqis an opportunity to live
freely in a democracy, as do
we. I challenge anyone to say
that is wrong.
When disaster strikes, who
shows up first with medi-
cines, tents, blankets and
cash? America not the
Europeans or the Arabs no
questions asked and no need


to pay for the help. We are
happy to do it.
America flew enormous
amounts of supplies and res-
cue personnel to tsunami-
ravaged Southeast Asia; liber-
ated Kuwait; and in Afghan-
istan and Iraq gave freedom
and the chance to vote to mil-
lions. This is the most gener-
ous nation by far.
The Middle East needs to
change its policy toward us
and all other freedom-loving
peoples around the world.
They need to stop killing each
other, stop supporting and
breeding terrorists and make
the most of the fledgling
democracy at their fingertips.
It is truly a very special gift
and if they blow it, it is my
guess that it will be a long
time, perhaps never, before
we go back and give them
another try.
God bless America.

Making Bush
the bogeyman
Editor:
The liberal left that con-
trols the Democratic Party
has become so distant from
the center that nothing can
be accomplished in Congress
or the Senate, resulting in the
lowest approval ratings ever
recorded for these branches.
Now it is becoming ever-
more apparent that the Dem-
ocrats no longer consider
Osama bin Laden and al-
Qaida a threat to America.
John Edwards considers the
war on terrorism simply "a
bumper sticker slogan." And


the majority of Democratic
congressmen and senators
view the Iraq war as an enor-
mous waste of time and
efforts, "botched foreign poli-
cy."
Democrats tell us, fear not
bin Laden. George Bush is the
real bogeyman.
Who's that listening to my
phone call? George Bush.
Who's that peeking in my
bank account? George Bush.
Who's that causing global
warming? George Bush.
Who's that causing Hur-
ricane Katrina? George Bush.
Who's that causing the
price of gasoline to skyrocket?
George Bush.
Who's that causing the at-
tacks of Sept. 11? George
Bush.
Who's that causing the
Minneapolis bridge collapse?
George Bush.
The dysfunctional Demo-
crats have no answers or
cures for any of today's mal-
adies. It is much easier to
blame than attempt to cor-
rect.
So when you go to bed
tonight, be careful to check
under the bed George
Bush will get you if you don't
watch out.

What if Venice never chan


DON HAY
GUEST COLUMNIST


The Venice area is a great
place to live, work and play. As
I look back over the last 10
years, I am proud that Venice
Area Beautification Inc. had a
hand in many of the good
things about the Venice area.
It's tempting to say, "let's
keep it just the way it is." No
more growth, no more devel-
opment and no more ameni-
ties that would cause people
to want to move here. That
certainly has an appeal.
I wonder what the Venice
area would be like 10 years


from now?
It's impossible to accurate-
ly predict the future. But it is
possible to use the past to
gain some insight.
It is now 1997. The tech
boom is in full gear, there has
been no Sept. 11, housing
prices are growing at a mod-
est rate and regular gasoline is
$1.20 per gallon. Things are
pretty good.
What if we decided, as a
community, to lock in the sta-
tus quo as much as possible?
What if we voted in public
officials who would block any
attempt to change Venice?
Now, let's fast forward to
today. First, there are some
things you cannot change.
The tech boom was a bust,
Sept. 11 happened and we are
at war, the real estate bubble
burst and gasoline is now
around $3 per gallon. What
would our home be like?
The first thing that comes
to my mind is there would be
no Venetian Waterway Park.
The city and county govern-


ments would not support
such a project and without
their help and guidance, it
just wouldn't happen.
The streetlights in Venice
would be old and utilitarian.
Any landscaping would be
done as cheaply as possible.
The train depot would be in
total disrepair, or it would
have fallen prey to the wreck-
ing ball.
The north and south
bridges would still be two
lanes and Business 41 would
be a substandard roadway.
The community center would
be old and shabby.
Oh, and by the way, taxes
would be higher because the
cost of services would have
gone up (remember gas
prices) and the tax base stay-
ed the same or declined even
with the increase in real estate
values. The world has chang-
ed, but Venice is just like it
was in 1997 sort of.
I do not know what your
vision of the future may be. I
do know that we all need to


be involved in the process.
Over the next several
months, many issues that are
critical to the future of our
home are going to come
before the voters of the city of
Venice and Sarasota County.
There are three things you
must do if you care about our
future:
1. If you are not already
registered to vote, the dead-
line for the Nov. 6 ballot is Oct.
9. Register to vote. If you need
information on how to regis-
ter, call the Venice Area Cham-
ber of Commerce, 488-2236.
2. Study the issues and
candidates and decide for
yourself. Some people get the
facts a little confused, so there
is a lot of misinformation out
there and you need to dig for'
the facts.
3. Vote! As a political con-
sultant. once told me, "If you
don't vote, your opinion does-
n't matter."
I wonder what Venice will
be like in 2017? I guess it is up
to us.


LET 'EM HAVE IT: WHAT STEPS CAN BE TAKEN TO RAISE THE LEVEL OF CIVILITY IN THE VENICE AP CALL ij AT 207-1111.


Another pro-LIFE endorsement


On the money. The column in which Bob Vedder men-
tioned the LIFE program was right on the money. That pro-
gram saved many lives and families. My son chose to go down
the wrong path, but his stay at the LIFE program turned his
young life around. I am proud to know many of the young peo-
ple who went through the program who are now attorneys,
nurses, successful businessmen, ministers and other wonder-
ful professions. We need more places for our children to go for
the help they need. Helen Petermann was the heart of the pro-
gram, and she is still helping many young people who cross her
path.


No movies. I got a sub-
scription because I wanted
the TV guide showing movies
and now you've changed it so
that you dOn't see the movies
on the lays. If it contin-
ues this way,I'm going to drop
my subscription.
Proud. After reading about
Wayne Welsh, I just sat back
with a smile on my'face and
to thank you with all my
heart. I don't know the man
and never heard his name
before. He recently retired as
battalion chief firefighter and
paramedic. He is now a
Venice Realtor. He donates 10
percent of his commission
per sale to a local charity
selected by either the seller or
buyer. I'm a senior and long-
time resident of Venice. I've
never needed charitable help,
but I'm very proud of Mr.
Welch and what he's doing.
I'm sure he's helped many
people with his thoughtful-
ness. I hope others who hear
about him will choose to do
the same.
Name in mind. I saw the


write-up in the paper today
about proposed names for
the veteran's cemetery, and I
would like to submit one
name. I probably have some
more, but right now*v I would
like to. submit one. Who do I
talk to?
EDITOR'S NOTE: You can send
your suggestion to Congress-
man Vern Buchanan's office,
235 N. Orange Ave., Sarasota,
34236.
Show me. This is concern-
ing the proposed round-
about. I think it would be a
good idea for Mr. Wallwork to
provide us with a video. He
says he has had some suc-
cessful roundabouts and per-
haps he could give us a 15- or
20-minute video that would
be taken from a helicopter
above the roundabout so that
we could see how vehicles
enter the roundabout and
we'd be able to follow them. I
don't want a little clip here
and a little clip there, no, I
want to see the vehicle ap-
proaching the roundabout,
how it negotiates the round-


about and how it exits the
roundabout. So, the camera
needs to be in one position,
above the roundabout for 15
minutes to let us see. My
experience with a round-
about is if you don't approach
it from the right-hand lane,
you approach it in the second
lane. You might have to go
around once or twice before
you're going to get out of that
roundabout; before you can
get into traffic. So, I'd really
like to see a video from the
overhead on how the round-
about really works. Looking at
jitibn.paper that's not good
enough. We need to see a
video from the overhead.
Tacky. The island strip
malls are so tacky. A good ex-
ample of a good place to take
visitors is Sanibel Island.

Everyone couldn't wait to get
over to Sanibel Island. They
have their stores all nestled
around a woodsy scene or
lots of green shrubs and trees,
and that's what would make
Venice stand out a little bit
more and make Venice a
place for visitors. People from
Sarasota would come down
to the unique shops inVenice,
but the Venice shops, are not
as unique as they used to be.
When they give approval for
rezoning and building and
development downtown,
they shouldn't have the build-
ing- come all the way out to
the sidewalk. They need to do
a lot more landscaping. That
goes for anything new. Venice
island needs a lot to be de-
sired with all the empty build-
ings there. Make sure there's a
lot of green around when
you approve these buildings.
Let's try to get it right and be
smart about it and not ruin
everything with not enough
parking and not enough
greenery.
Bottleneck. Every time
there's a. problem on 1-75
there should be some state
troopers or officers directing
traffic on U.S. 41 and Laurel
because it becomes a huge,
back-up bottleneck. Many
times 1-75 closes down. That's
only Traffic Cop 101. You'd
think the authorities would
get it by now. I'm sitting in
traffic here because 1-75 has
closed down.

Chef to the stars opening island bistro


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

If you enjoy Crosby, Stills,
Nash & Young and Jimmy
Buffett, you will want to meet
Eddy Glennon, who is open-
ing The Back Eddy Bistro,
239 W. Miami Ave. It's taking
the space occupied by If
Teacups Could Talk and The
Cats Meow, which are moving
to West Venice Avenue.
Glennon graduated from
New York's Culinary Institute
of America, worked in Man-
hattan's The Laurent and The
Hampton's Starr Boggs res-


taurants before becoming the
private chef to Jimmy Buffett,
Neil Young and media tycoon
Rupert Murdoch.
For 17 years, he cooked for
the stars and the band. He
and his wife, Alyson, man-
aged their employers' Cali-
fornia ranches. Now they are
achieving their dream to
open their own worldly bistro
in Venice.
"The island has a great vil-
lage feel, like The Hampton's,"
said Glennon.
He is combining two stores
to create a fun, 50-plus seat
bistro with a wine and beer
bar. For lunch, dinner and
weekend brunch he will serve
a changing menu of interna-
tional, American and ethnic
foods.
He recently moved from
Brandon to Venice and is
working toward opening The
Back Eddy Bistro in late
November.
Movie store closing
Only one of the three local


Movie Gallery stores is affect-
ed by the company's recent
announcement it's closing
underperforming and unpro-
fitable stores.
This follows the company's
decision to close 520 stores
out of its 4,000 locations na-
tionwide, confirmed compa-
ny spokesman Andrew Sie-
gel.
The Movie Gallery, 1095
Tamiami Trail, Nokomis, in
the Nokomis Village Plaza,
and the location at Placida
Road, Englewood, remain
open, but the location within
Wal-Mart's SuperCenter in
South Venice is closing. Call
486-0954.
Shriners sell property
Laura Kopple, president of
the Venice Area Board of
Realtors, provided more de-
tails on its projected move to
South Auburn Road at East
Venice Avenue.
"The Shriners have sold
the front 3-acre parcel to be
developed as an office park


along, with our development
of the back 2 acres, if mem-
bership approves it," said
Kopple.
Joint development of the
two projects would enable
VABR to gain additional park-
ing and save money. My
recent report highlighted
advantages of the move from
the Substation Road location
to a larger building with addi-
tional facilities for staff, mem-
bers and the public. The
Shriners would acquire the
existing VABR property.
New owner
Ernie Sabatino recently
acquired One Stop Accessory
Shop, 1940 South Tamiami
Trail near Seminole Drive.
An electrical engineer in
Boston, he moved to Venice
in February and found a com-
pany where he could take his
hobby into his business.
One Stop sells car and
truck accessories. Its techni-

Friday night lights


KC QUARETTI-LEE
COLUMNIST


Great news: Starting Oct.
19 the downtown Venice
shops will remain open until
8 p.m. every Friday evening!
John Nolen's original vision
was that the city's downtown
is the hub of activity, and the
shops being open every
Friday evening meshes beau-
tifully with this thought. We'll
be able to end our work week
with a bite to eat and a bit of
relaxing shopping therapy
without driving any distance
at all.
So remember, starting Oct.
19 instead of the downtown
shops opening only one night
per month, they will be open
every Friday night.
Another change that works
well with the new downtown
Friday evening hours is that
any concerts we schedule in
the Gazebo will start at 8 p.m.


and end at 10 p.m.
Venice MainStreet's annual
dinner-dance fundraiser is
Oct. 13, and there are still a
few tickets available at Venice
Stationers, Dick's Shoes or the
VMS office.
The Venice Train Depot
will be transformed into New
York, New York for this black-
and-white dinner-dance fea-
.turing catering from Cafe
Venice and music by Take 2.
Many of our local restaurants
e, donating their ,swet.spe7-
cialties, creating spectacular
dessert buffet. A silent auc-
tion and 50/50 raffle will add
to the evening's fun.
Your $55 per person ticket
donation will contribute to
Venice MainStreet's ongoing
projects. Do join us for what
promises to be one fantastic
evening.
Oct. 30, our new Web site
will go online. You'll be able to
see the VMS monthly calen-
dar of events, get contact info
for our members, link to their
Web sites, get map informa-
tion and view the VMS
newsletter.
Fast approaching is Hal-
loween Parade, when all the
area school kids turn out in
costume for Halloween, going
shop to shop trick or treating
from 4-6 p.m. on Wednesday,
Oct. 31.


Nov. 3 and 4, Venice will be
host to the Downtown Art
Fest. This is our 20th anniver-
sary for Venice MainStreet,
and B.J. Carson has created
the most beautiful poster
commemorating the event.
You'll be able to purchase
this poster and the 2008 VMS
T-shirts at our booth both
days of the event. Also avail-
able will be the VMS Christ-
mas ornament (this year's
showcases, the Venice Beach
Pavilion on a greeft-baek-
- ground) and canvas tote bags
with B.J. Carson's poster
design, which are a great and
easy way to make our lives a
bit greener.
We always welcome help
in our booth either Saturday
or Sunday, and Sister Maur-
een could certainly benefit
from some aid setting up the
student art show early Sat-
urday morning.
If you would like more
information on any of our
upcoming events, just give a
call to the VMS office at 484-
6722, and I'll be happy to
answer your questions.

Bigger, better Captain Eddie's opening


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Now, there is much more
to Captain Eddie's Family
Seafood Restaurant at Tami-
ami Trail and Colonia Lane in
Nokomis.
Owner Jane Corliss and
business partner Sam Cha-
vers are opening its new
extension and facilities this
Monday.
A new covered porch en-
trance to the north side with
public and handicapped park-
ing accessed from Martha
;Lane is operational: 'Eyeit-

along Colonia Lane will be lost
as Sarasota County widens the
road.
The entryway leads to the


newly extended dining room
with access to the original
dining area. The square foot-
age of the restaurant has
tripled and seating has in-
creased to 150.
There is a fully stocked bar
and a special family party
table for 14. All food is served
on nautical-themed crockery
with silverware. The bath-
rooms have been upgraded to
include handicapped facili-
ties.

weighing 279 pounds caught

wall capable of taking the size


and weight in the original din-
ing room, and a rooster fish he
hooked in Mexico at the bar.
External remodeling so far
has only included painting
the property, as Corliss is
awaiting completion of the
roadwork, which means mov-
ing the existing sidewalk.
Following the widening of
Colonia Lane and Tamiami

put in.

Council queries
City attorney Bob Ander-
son has already said the case
is likely to be appealed again
in court.
Anderson said the public
will have opportunity to be
heard during a public com-
ment period before a final
decision is made by council.
He asked members of
council to protect the de novo


hearing process by not having
any substantive discussions
among themselves or with
members of the public until
the issue is before them.
Council members, unfa-
miliar with this kind of ap-
peal, had numerous ques-
tions for Anderson during a
recent council meeting.
Anderson said he would be
there to represent council,


but only on questions regard-
ing process not on the sub-
stantive decision of whether
short-term rentals are allow-
ed in residential neighbor-
hoods under current law.
"Who is going to be giving
us advice?" asked Mayor Fred
Hammett.
"That's not the place of an
attorney" to make a final rec-
ommendation, Anderson said.


"You can't ask attorneys to
make that decision. It's some-
thing you imposed on your-
selves" by allowing appeals to
be heard by city council,
Anderson said.
"You're going to do fine,"
he said. "With four attorneys
(in the room) there won't be a
lack of advice (being) given."

At the time, a Sharky's con-
tractor testified the chickee
huts, pavilion-type areas that
provide shade, are exempt
from building permits under
state law if built by members
of the Seminole Indian tribe.
The same tribe is doing the
new work.
Hans Behrens, building
and code enforcement direc-
tor, testified in 2004 that state


law only exempts technical
aspects of the structures, and
that permits must still be filed
to meet zoning standards and
maintain agreements in the
lease.
That project required the
demolition of an existing
structure that had been dam-
aged by hurricane-force
winds, unlike the new project.
Permits
City Manager Marty Black


said this week the Pier Group
hasn't disclosed to the city
what it's building, although
it's presumed they're chickee
huts.
Co-owner Mike Pachota
said the chickee huts don't
require building permits and
downplayed the city's con-
cern.
"I thought we had already
taken care of that," Pachota
said.
"(The huts) don't have


anything to do with the
expansion or renewing the
lease. We just have the normal
fix-up (going on) before sea-
son, and the chickee huts are
part of that."
Pachota said he's eager to
bring the lease dispute to clo-
sure.
"I'm hopeful we can get
something going as far as the
agreement and the expan-
sion."

Venice vol


ball to take on top teams


BYTRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High School
volleyball team (15-0) has
already defeated every team
in their district. They've
already beaten state-ranked
St. Thomas Aquinas High
School, Evangelical Christian
School and Buchholz High
School.
Now they are looking for
some even tougher competi-
tion to prepare for the region-
al tournament that looms at
the end of this month.
This weekend, the Indians
head to Tampa to compete in
the 16-team Tampa Bay Invi-
tational against some of the
toughest teams the state of
Florida has to offer.
"It's where all the top teams
in the state go. To be the best,
you have to beat the best,"
Head Coach Brian Wheatley
said. "So that's why we go."
Top-ranked Venice will be
joined by seventh-ranked and
two-time defending Tampa
Bay Invitational champions
Plant. High School. Second-
ranked Timber Creek High
School and ninth-ranked
Bishop Verot High School will
also be there. Orangewood
Christian School (12) and Fort


Myers High School (20) round
out the teams ranked in the
top 20 that will compete in
the tournament. One team
from Louisiana will also be
there; Newman High School
is ranked 20th in the state. All
rankings are taken from
MaxPreps.com.
"We want to play the best
possible competition that we
can," Wheatley said. "I would
rather have a heated battle
and lose than crush someone,
but that's just me."
Other highly ranked schools
that will be participating are
Berkley Preparatory School,
Spanish River High School,
Cypress Bay High School, host
Tampa Preparatory School and
Winter Springs High School.
The past two seasons the
Indians have run into some
stiff competition in Tampa.
Both years,, region-rival Plant
defeated Venice in the finals.
"I've got our trophy sitting
out," Wheatley said.
"I never keep second-place
trophies, usually I just chuck
them. For some reason I kept
that one. I've just been letting
them look at that all week
long. Second place."
This year the Indians are
guaranteed not to lose to

BY TRIPP MILLER

Crunch time starts tonight
for Venice High School.
The Indians take to the
road against Port Charlotte
High School tonight at 7 in
the first of four straight dis-
trict games.
The Venice coaching staff
has said repeatedly that the
goal this season is to win the
district. The Indians made the
first step by beating Lakwood
Ranch High School Sept. 21. A
win at Port Charlotte, coming
off a big win over Lemon Bay
High School, would bring
them just that much closer.
"They have a lot of excite-

it right in front of us:'
Larry Shannon,


defensive


coordinator


rent in their program right
now so that is a challenge for
us," defensive coordinator
Larry Shannon said. "But we-
feel like this is a must win.
Our goal is to win the'district
and we've got it right in front
of us."
Going into this stretch of
district games, the Indians
can't afford to keep giving up
the football. In their two loss-
es this season, Venice has
turned it over a combined
eight times.
"Without a doubt it's the


difference in the Sarasota
game and obviously it's the
difference in the Golden Gate
game," Head Coach John
Peacock said. "We basically
gave them the game but we
can't keep saying that. We
can't keep telling the kids that
we gave the game away
because we're coming up on
districts now and we can't
afford to give away any more
games.
"I feel that we're going to
be alright. I think we should
be 5-0 right now but that's not
reality. We're 3-2. I think that
we're going to be fine, I think
we're going to roll. We are get-
ting better in practice, believe
it or not. There hasn't been a
ball on the ground in practice
in I don't know how long."
But they continue to work
on it. Peacock maintains that
his backs were holding the
ball correctly. He said it wasn't
like they weren't protecting
the ball. Sometimes these
things just happen and it can
get in a player's head.
"A lot of that stuff is men-
tal," he said. "Anyone that's
played that position knows
that it can get in your head. I
played the position and I
went through it as a player.
Sometimes it's not even good
to say the word fumble. You
don't want them to think
about fumbling."
So instead, the defense has
been thinking about fum-
bling all week in practice.
Their main focus has been to
force the loose ball during the
play and beyond. After each
play, the ball carrier has had
to physically put the ball in
the hands of coach Peacock.
If the ball did somehow find-


its way to the turf, there were
consequences.
"We're working on it this
week. Everytime they drop
the ball, they have to run to
the stadium and back. So
they're not going to be drop-
ping the ball a. lot," senior
offensive gaard '"and last
week's Offensive Player of the
Week Ronnie Thomas said.
Outside of their turnover
troubles the Indians have
been playing well on both
offense and defense. Venice
averages 188.6 rushing yards
and 127.6 passing yards per
game. On defense, they allow
only 120.6 rushing yards and
a mere 69 passing yards per
game.
Take out the 12 turnovers
this season, and the Indians
could be looking at an unde-
feated season.
"We're going to work on it,
we're going to focus on it this
week because obviously that's
the difference in both of our
[losses]," Peacock said. "It's
not tackling, it's not blocking,
it's not anything but turn-
overs, so that's the main thing
we're going to focus on. We're
going to put two hands on it
now, there's not an option."
So look for the Indians to
rebound from last week's loss.
"It was a tough loss Friday
but we've got a district game
this week and we're going to
practice hard and hold onto
the football, do everything
right and come up with a win
this week," junior defensive
end and last week's Defensive
Player of the Week Jamie
Owen said. "'Any questions?"


Offense
The Venice offense averages more rushing, passing and total yards per game than:
Port Charlotte,.Buq( the Indians turned it over five times last week to make it 10
times this season.,Port C'arlotte has given it up just four times. The Pirates' oe'Be'rinett
and Baily Beckham also average more than five yards per carry. Until the Indians find a
cure for their fumble-itis epidemic, they won't have the edge over anybody. Edge: Port
Charlotte
Defense
KW Even after shutting out Lemon Bay High School last week, Port Charlotte still gives
up an average of 221 rushing yards and 27.25 points per game. Venice on the other
hand, seems to live in the backfield. Mix, Czuprynski and company have sacked
the quarterback 12 times and held the opposition to just 120.6 rushing yards per
game. Other teams haven't had much luck passing the ball, either. The Indians only give
up 69 passing yards per game. Edge: Venice

Special Teams
These teams are pretty much equal as far as punting and kicking. Samuel Costa of
IWPort Charlotte is four-of-six on field goals and 10-of-10 on extra points. Eric
Cangelosi of Venice is two-of-two on field goals and eight-of- 10 on extra points. The
Indians also have a freshman who has shown he can make it at the varsity level, hit-
ting four-of-four extra points. If Dre Archer can build on his last two weeks as the Venice
return man then he could be dangerous. Edge: Venice

Intangibles
Port Charlotte has not had much success so far this season. Last week, they saw a glim-
mer of hope as they pummeled Lemon Bay 34-0. Venice is coming off a tough
homecoming loss to Golden Gate that they feel like they should have won. The
Indians will be looking to take out their frustration on Port Charlotte and the
Pirates will be looking to build on last week's performance. Unfortunately for Port
Charlotte, Venice is no Lemon Bay. Edge: Venice

Overall Edge
Venice should have little trouble moving the football against a weak Port Charlotte
defense. If they can hold onto the football and avoid turnovers then look out, it
could get ugly. The Pirates need to control the ball and keep their defense off the
field. If Port Charlotte doesn't get intimidated and can make a few big plays hap-
pen early then they can stay in this game and maybe escape with the upset. But it
would be an upset. Edge:Venice

Swimming Indians win home opener vs. Lemon Bay


SPORTS BRIEFS


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


The Venice High School
swim team won their first of
only two home meets this
season.
The Indians outscored
Lemon Bay in all but four
events as the girls won 95-75
and the boys won 107-62.
"I think we swam pretty
well," said Head Coach John
Bruenning.
"We were swimming off
events, we weren't swimming
our best events and I think
that we got up and competed
pretty well."
Venice advances to 4-1 on


the year as Lemon Bay falls
to 3-2.
With districts and region-
als looming in the second half
of this month, the Indians are
looking to get some rest
before things get serious. ,
"We're transitioning out of
our work phase and into our
starting to rest phase," Bruen-
ning said. "Some of the kids,
their goal meet is the Sarasota
County Championships next
week. Some of them, their
goal is districts."
Mark Cox, the defending
state champion in the 100
butterfly, is gunning for the
state meet again this season.
"His focus is still over a


month away," Bruenning
said.

the Tammi House complex,
they complained to federal
authorities. Justice Depart-
ment investigators deter-
mined the operation was le-
gal.
Since then, state housing
authorities have visited the


Tammi House complex to
determine whether the coun-
ty's assertion that it qualifies
as a "community residential
home" is valid. They found
the operation to be legal
under federal guidelines and
will not require a state license.


If a settlement can't be
reached, the case will
go to trial before a jury
on Oct. 29.

BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

A $2.7 million investment
for expert legal representation
may pay off for Sarasota
County if it buys an out-of-
court settlement against in-
tentional housing discrimina-
tion charges brought by the
U.S. Justice Department's civil
rights division.
Thursday, lawyers repre-
senting the federal govern-
ment, county, co-owners of a
Warm Mineral Springs com-
plex of six homes known as
Tammi House, and some of its
residents, were required to
submit "confidential media-
tion summaries" to a federal
court in Tampa.
These documents will be
the subject of an Oct. 11
mediation conference before
'U.S. Magistrate Judge Mary S.
Scriven. If a settlement can-
not be hammered out, the
case go before U.S. Fed-
eral Judge James D. Whitte-
more and a jury on Oct. 29.
On June 30, 2006, the
Justice Department charged
the countywith violating both
the U.S. Fair Housing Act and
U.S. Americans with Dis-
abilities Act for ordering five
of six houses in the Tammi
House complex closed, which
would have forced the ,evic-
tion of about 30 residents.
The county's action was
based on a 2004 zoning deter-
mination that the six homes
collectively qualify as a "com-
munity residential home"
under Florida law, and there
should be at least 1,000 feet of
separation between them.
Nobody has so far been evict-
ed.
Precedent Je
Tammi House is co-owned
by Coastal Behavioral Health-
care, which provides psychi-
atric and substance addiction
treatment for patients at its
crisis stabilization unit in
Sarasota, and Renaissance
Manor, which provides safe
homes for some of them after
they are discharged.
The case has influenced
housing decisions in other
Florida communities, among
them Martin County where
County Attorney Steve Fry
reportedly warned county
officials that a neighborhood
complex for recovering alco-
holics was in compliance with
the Fair Housing Act.
According to the Palm
Beach Post, North River
Shores neighbors in a subdi-
vision located north of Stuart
asked Martin County politi-
cians to close a faith-based
housing complex with 12
apartments known as The
Next Step Center.
Commissioners asked
county zoning officials to
bring back proposed changes
that would address the com-
plex, but the newspaper
reported Fry advised them
the facility was legal and said,
"If you want to regulate it,
you're going to come under
some very strict scrutiny."
Settlement talks in the
Sarasota County case could
focus on the county buying
either all or some of the six
homes, which would provide
Coastal Behavioral and Ren-
aissance Manor with enough
money to relocate. But a reso-
lution of the case will not be
that simple.
At stake
From the outset, Justice
Department officials have
insisted that any settlement
must include a signed con-
sent decree that includes an
admission of guilt by the
county, apologies, fines and
changes in county housing
and zoning regulations that
conform with federal law.


Coastal Behavioral, Ren-


aissance Manor and the
Tammi House residents also
have a financial stake. They
have incurred legal bills the
county may have to satisfy,
and the county may have to
restore annual grants it with-
held from Renaissance Man-


lawyers have told the court
their defense will take "two
and a half to three weeks" to
present at trial.
When Coastal Behavioral
and Renaissance Manor were
initially ordered by the county
to close five of six houses in


or.
Public records indicate
that through Sept. 18 the

ington, D.C., law firm of

sentation in the case. Its

... The News from Ecineville


BY TED RANK
STAFF ESCRITOR
Hang on to. your sanity, ladies
and gentlemen. It's time for News
from Ecineville.
In a move that could further
hurt the economy of Richarora
County, the National Association of
We're Rich and You're Not Cities
and Counties, headquartered in
Loudoun County, Md., is consider-
ing downgrading Richarora
County.
"It is not the policy of the
NAWRYNCC to discuss whether
there is, or is not, any ongoing, or,
for that matter, any planned or pre-
vious discussion regarding the
upgrading or downgrading of any
county or city, regardless of


whether or not there is any discus-
sion, which we at this time and in
the future will refuse to comment
on, other than to say we have no
comment at this time, which is, as
you know, our policy, which is not
to comment. Any questions?" said
NAWRYNCC Public Misinforma-
tion Officer Ron Ziegler Jr.
However, an article citing highly
placed sources in the NAWRYNCC
that appeared in the Notgnihsaw
Pillar Thursday stated the NAW-
RYNCC is in fact considering the
Richarora County downgrade.
The article quotes a highly
placed source as saying the organi-
zation is planing to downgrade the
county due to a severe slowdown
in the economy.
The source further claims it will


be a Level Two Downgrade, mean-
ing the county will be forced to offi-
cially change its name from Richa-
rora County to Richa County and
file the change with the NAWRY-
NCC Names that Sound Rich sub-
committee.
"There just is no 'rora' in Richa-
rora County any mora," the source
is quoted as saying.
"This is a travesty. These rich
b845457487 [you forgot to hit the
shift key] think they can go around
downgrading counties like they're
all powerful dictatorships," said
Richarora County Commissioner
Philip Yu-hsiang.
"Who do they think they are?
They're acting like a d&%$ [that's
better] condominium association,
doing whatever they want, rolling


over people, charging outrageous
fees for nothing," addedYu-hsiang.
"There's nothing wrong with our
economy; everything is wonderful.
Two houses sold last week and
there are thousands more available
for sale. We have plenty of com-
mercial and retail space available
for rent as companies continue to
go out of business, the available
workforce is increasing as people
continued to get laid off, rents are
going down as thousands of work-
ing families leave the state, and you
can get a building permit in 5 min-
utes, not the several weeks it used
to take when the economy was
booming. See what I mean, every-
thing is fine here in Richarora
County," said Richarora County
Economic Development President


Sharon Promarket.
The Pillar source went on to say
if things continue to deteriorate,
there is some chatter in the
NAWRYNCC that Richarora
County could face a Level One
Downgrade, forcing it to drop the
"a" from its name, leaving it Rich
County.
The source in the Pillar story
reiterates that this is only chatter at
this point.
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, re-
member, sticks and stones may
break your bones but words can
never hurt you here in Ecineville.

The Englewood Art Center
has a number of instructors
returning in October as well
as some who have never
taught there before.
Laura Arena has been
weaving since 1976. She is
experienced in teaching how
to spin and weave, as well as
the techniques of dyeing with
natural dyes. She works with
various fibers such as linen,
silk, wool, and cotton. Arena
has won many awards and is
currently a member of the
Manasota Weavers Guild. Her
six-week series of classes will
be Friday mornings..
Bronze casting, taught by
Sean Colson, begins with
sculpting a design in wax.
After coating with ceramic,


the wax is melted away, and
the ceramic mold is filled
with bronze. Colson has been
a sculptor since the mid-
1960s. His classes will meet
twice a week Tuesday and
Thursday mornings for three
weeks.
Rosemary Rizzo is a tal-
ented and popular artist. She
will be teaching a six-week
series of Mosaic classes on
Tuesday mornings. Rizzo
will teach the basics of mo-
saics, including materials,
tools, cutting methods, grout-
ing and applications. No ar-
tistic or design experience is
necessary.
Among the instructors
who are new to the Art Center
is Alberto Cruz. He will be
teaching Acrylic painting to
beginners and intermediate
students Tuesday afternoons.


Cruz has developed his own
collection of exquisite tex-
tures and patterns to create
his new art look. His work can
be seen throughout October
in the art .center's Ken Mit-
chell Gallery.
Terri O'Boyle will teach
fresh flower arranging in
Tuesday morning classes as
well as Tuesday evenings.
Each series of classes has a
theme, beginning with fall/
Halloween. O'Boyle has been
involved with art since high
school, studying in various
media and techniques.
The instructor for the Exp-
loring Oils class is Ron
Sanders. Sanders began pur-
suing art as a small child,
working in oils by the age of
nine and selling his first com-
missioned work by.the age of
eleven. His goal is to make the

The baby item drive is part

Election fever is in the air


Wq ow .I U


ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST


The election of 11 mem-
bers to the board of directors
of the South Venice Civic
Association begins now with
candidates aspiring to the
board for the year 2008.
At the national level, candi-
dates for president appear to be
coming out of our ears. At the
county level, candidates are lin-
ingup already for next year, and
at the city ofVenice level, those
elections are next month.
The SVCA is a nonprofit


organization, and its election
of directors is much quieter
- usually no campaign
advertising or fundraising
mania. Like most nonprofits,
we follow the recognized
order of procedures.
First, nomination proce-
dures are specifically written
into the bylaws. This is a
deterrent to cronyism, where
those in office keep electing
friends, thereby reducing the
democratic process of good
leadership. The nominations
committee consists of a cross
section of the organization's
membership.
The call has gone out to all
members that the director
positions are open and, based
on bylaw qualifications, any-
one may apply. A period of
time is given between the first
call and the last date to apply.
Candidates who have sub-
mitted their names will let it
be known to other members,
and this is where the "cam-


paigning" begins.
In our bylaws, there are 11
directors elected by the mem-
bership; no board approval is
required. The nominations
committee receives all candi-
dates, reviews their service to
the organization and other
qualifying information and
selects 11 names from the
long list, thus' creating a single
slate to present to the mem-
bership for a vote.
The single slate is published
in our next newsletter as a bal-
lot Members not on the slate
have an opportunity to add
names by petition to the com-
mittee. If approved, their
names are added to the list and
a separate ballot is mailed to
the membership for vote.
The 11 names marked on
their ballots are then counted
and the final 11 are declared
elected. We have a five-year
term limit for any one board
member, but each must be
re-elected every year.


The current board of direc-
tors receives the next year's
elected members and then
votes for the next year's offi-
cers.
I outline our system here
only to show a model that
may help other organizations
that may want to follow these
procedures. Contact me if
you want the actual language
for your bylaws.
Just in: There will be a com-
munity cleanup in South
Venice on Saturday, Oct. 27,
from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Start
cleaning out those attics and
garages, cut your yard branch-
es and shrubs and contact your
neighbors who have left debris
and junk in their yards.
This is a project of county
code enforcement to help
improve our neighborhoods,
so mark your calendars now.
Ellen Hillstrom is the
South Venice Civic
Association development
director.

Catholic Charities ranks in top 1


percent for fiscal responsibility


FROM CATHOLIC
CHARITIES

Catholic Charities, Diocese
of Venice Inc., which operates
31 programs throughout 10
counties in Southwest Flor-
ida, ranks in the top 1 percent
of charities nation wide for
fiscal responsibility. Charity
Navigator, the largest inde-
pendent evaluator of chari-
ties in the country, awarded
the organization the highest
four-star rating for the sixth
consecutive year, earmarking
the coveted distinction.
"Only 1 percent of the
charities we have rated re-
ceived six consecutive four-
star evaluations," said Trent
Stamp, president of Charity
Navigator. The ranking indi-
cates that Catholic Charities,
Diocese of Venice outper-
forms most charities in Amer-
ica in its management of
donations.. Stamp said Cath-
olic Charities, Diocese ofVen-
ice demonstrated "exception-
al financial health."
Charity Navigator evalu-
ates charities in two broad
areas of financial health: their


organizational efficiency and
their organization capacity.
A set of financial ratios or
performance categories to
rate each of these two areas
are used and an overall rating
is issued that combines the
charity's performance in both
areas.
"We are truly excited to re-
ceive the award for six years,"
said Peter Routsis-Arroyo,
president/CEO of Catholic
Charities, Diocese of Venice.
"This exceptional four-star
rating demonstrates that our
Catholic Charities organiza-
tion is worthy of donors'
trust."
Catholic Charities USA, the
flagship organization for the
network of Catholic Charities
agencies across the nation,
was ranked 8th in Charity
Navigator's Top Ten List of
Slam Dunk Charities, accord-
ing to Stamp. "At Charity
Navigator we scrutinized the
financial health of more than
5,300 of the best-known char-
ities in America. Catholic
Charities USA stands out not
just as one of the most fiscally
healthy, but also for their


strong commitment- to re-
specting the rights of donors,"
Stamp said.
Charity Navigator is a non-
profit organization that helps
donors make informed deci-
sions. By accepting no adver-
tising or donations from the
organizations it evaluates,
Charity Navigator ensures its
evaluations are unbiased. The
ratings are available for free at
the organization's Web site.
"I hope our donors will use
the Charity Navigator web
site to see for themselves how
and why Catholic Charities,
Diocese of Venice again re-
ceived this high rating," Rout-
sis-Arroyo said. "One visit will
provide further assurance
that we strive to make the
maximum use of all funds we
receive, whether they come
from individuals, parishes,
grants, foundations or busi-
nesses."

Ng Research 'WN
seems to confirm the
long-held suspicion that
injury to a joint may
predispose a person to
osteoarthritis later in life.
The study by researchers at Johns
Hopkins University began between
1948 and 1964, when more than
1,300 medical students were asked if
they had suffered any fractures, tears, or
'dislocations of the knee or hip. Years
later, when the average age of the study's
participants reached 61, it was found that
14% of those who had suffered a knee
injury during high school or college
developed osteoarthritis of the knee
(compared with 6% of the non-
injured doctors). Chiropractic
treatment can help stave off arthritis
by keeping the joint properly aligned
and bringing the body's structure
into better balance.

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Recently listed by Mi-
chael Saunders Real-
tor Helen Moore is a
three-bedroom condomini-
um in one of the most historic
buildings in town the an-
nex to the Venice Centre Mall.
Located just behind the
Summerville Retirement Cen-
ter, the annex dates to 1927,
when it was used to house
staff of the Hotel Venice and
the San Marco Hotel. When
those hotels were reopened
for use by the Kentucky
Military Institute for its winter
quarters beginning in 1931,
the annex served as the
school's infirmary building.
The KMI vacated Venice in
1970 and two years later
closed its home campus at
Lyndon, Ky. The KMI build-
ings were finally sold in
February 1979. The Hotel
Venice is today known as
Summerville and the San
Marco is today known as the
Venice Centre Mall. The mall
has retail spaces on the first


floor and condominium
apartments on the second
and third floors.
On the ground floor of the
annex are two larger apart-
ments and a central commu-
nity room, which is used by all
the condo residents. Located
at 262 Tampa Ave., Unit 1-P
(Patio) contains three bed-
rooms, two full bathrooms, a
recently remodeled kitchen,
living/dining room space and
small utility room with stack-
able washer and dryer.
Ceilings are high throughout
the apartment and there are
interior shutters on bedroom
windows. Windows through-
out the residence are tall and
double hung. The bathrooms
were upgraded about the
same time as the kitchen.
Ceramic tile was installed in'
the kitchen and in both bath-
rooms.
Recently rented on an
annual basis, the unit was
vacated Sept. 30. It was listed
for $369,900.
For an appointment to see
the residence, call Moore at
724-2030.
