Traffic on U.S. 41 drives over half of the road medallion that has been completed on the southbound side of the roadway at the intersection of Albee
Road and U.S. 41. Traffic patterns have shifted while construction is completed on the other half of the medallion on the northbound side of the road-

SUN EDITOR


Some business owners
along the U.S. 41 construc-
tion project and West Albee
Road are thankful that work
on the medallion has been
completed and West Albee
Road reopened.
They are less than im-
pressed, however, that the
contractor, Hubbard Con-
struction, beat the reopen-
ing deadline of Nov. 19.
"It was a moving dead-
line," said Joe Farrell one of
the owners of Pop's Sunset
Grill, 111 Circuit Road, No-
komis. "First it was going to
be closed for two weeks.
Then it was four weeks and
three days. They beat the
last deadline by three days."
Jeff Tritko, an owner of
Pelican Alley Restaurant,
1009 West Albee Road,
Nokomis, said there are still
detours as the east side of
U.S. 41 is closed to construct
the remaining half of the
medallion.
"That will affect busi-
nesses for another four to
five weeks," he said. "At least
with the (traffic) light turned
'back on that should help,"
he said.


"Construction is disruptive by
nature," said Ed Bielen, general
manager of Matthews-Currie
Ford Inc. in Nokomis. He appre-
ciates, however, the cooperation
and communication of Hubbard
Construction.
"They stop 'by the businesses

WHAT IS A
MEDALLION?
A road medallion is a decora-
tive inset placed in a roadway.
The one at U.S. 41 aqdAlbee
Road is made of staniped. ,
concrete in the shape of .a cir-
cle.


and tell us what's going to hap-
pen," he said. "And they made
some adjustments for us, too."
He was referring to when
Hubbard closed the east side of
U.S. 41 and didn't give his busi-
ness a turn lane.
'After we talked with them, in
just a few days they made a turn
lane forus," he said.
Not much for the money
Concrete medallions are
being installed at the U.S.
41/Albee Road and the U.S.
41/Colonia Lane intersections to
enhance aesthetics along the


Sthree-mile corridor of U.S. 41
from State Road 681 (Venice
Connector) to Bird Bay Drive in
Nokomis.
Tritk" doesn't think they are
worth the cost or the losses his
business has suffered.
"For a quarter of a million dol-
lars and- 12 weeks of road clo-
sures, that medallion isn't
much," he said.
The medallion at Albee Road
and U.S. 41 is one of three me-
dallions being installed in No-
komis. The Colonia Lane/Albee
Farm Road medallion was com-
pleted earlier this year. Con-
struction of the medallion at the
U.S. 41/Colonia Lane intersec-
tion is scheduled to begin early
next year and also will require
traffic shifts and detours.
Albee Road at U.S. 41 was
opened about 9 p.m.Wednesday.
This means motorists can now
access West Albee Road from
southbound U.S. 41 simply by
making a right turn. Motorists
also will enjoy direct access to
U.S. 41 in both directions from
Albee Road. -
However, as a safety precau-
tion, motorists traveling north-
bound on U.S. 41 will have to
take Palmetto Road west to
Lyons Bay Road north to reach
West Albee Road.
Motorists will be able to reach


SAFETY FIRST ,
The Florida Departmeht of
Transportation advises
motorists to exercise extra
caution while driving, through

enforced by the Sarasota

both directions via Silverspray
Lane east (.02 mile) and Amalfie
Road south (.02 mile). Motorists
can access U.S. 41 from East
Albee Road by taking Amalfie
Road north and Silverspray Lane
west to U.S. 41. .
FDOT is widening U.S. 41]
from two to thred lanes in both
directions along: a three-mile
corridor from north of S.R. 681 to
Bird Bay Drive. The project also.
includes the replacement of the
existing Dona Bay and Shakett
Creek bridges, the rehabbing of
the Roberts Bay Bridge, and
major drainage, signalization
and curb/sidewalk improve-
ments along the entire corridor.

Marriott


kills Lake


Venice deal

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
While a full house at city hall on
Wednesday witnessed three new slow-
growth members being sworn in, Marriott
Resort and its agents were putting the final
touches on a press release announcing the
withdrawal of an offer to build a $300 mil-
lion resort and PGA-style golf course.
"The outcome of the recent city council
election makes it evident that.the majority
of Venice voters disagreed with the Venice
business community as to the value of this
proposed community amenity, since rede-
velopment of the airport was a major cam-
paign issue," said Amalthea Properties
investment's Aris Mardirossian in a press
release.
Amalthea also announced it had termi-
nated its contract to buy out the Venice Golf
Association, holders of the lease of the
Venice Municipal Golf Course. The offer for
$3.7 million was subject to city council
approval.

City wants


more time


on comp plan

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
There was no difference of opinion
among members of the newly constituted
city council on their first day of business
together.
They voted unanimously at a Thursday
workshop to seek an extension of the dead-
line to file the city's comprehensive plan.
Council Member John Simmonds made
the motion.
It was the first day on the job for newly
elected Mayor Ed Martin and council mem-
bers Sue Lang and Ernie Zavodnyik.
The draft plan was criticized by newly
elected council members during the cam-
paign for excessive height and density in
some areas of the city.
"The plan lays the foundation for devel-
opment in the city of Venice," Martin said.
"We've got to get it right the first time
because future development for a long time
to come will be based on this plan."
A draft of the long-range plan, last revised
in 1999, was due to the Florida Department
of Community Affairs by Jan. 11, 2008.
To secure the six-month extension, coun-
cil needed to act before Nov. 26.
"I thiftk many of us who read the docu-
ments compare it with the New York City
telephone directory. We recognize the good
work done, but we do have some policy dif-
ferences," said Martin.

Skip watering during cooler months


FROM SWIFTMUD
The Southwest Florida
Water Management
District has a new public
awareness campaign to
encourage residents who
irrigate their lawns to skip a
week during the cooler
months.
According to research by
the University of Florida, as
temperatures grow cooler,
grass doesn't need to be
watered as often. The "skip
a week" campaign will use
radio and print advertise-
ments to encourage reduce
outdoor irrigation.
The ads highlight the fol-
lowing tips people can use
to determine when their gr-
ass needs wafer. Your lawn
needs water when:
* Grass blades are folded in
half
* Grass blades are blue-gray
* A footprint remains on the

lawn
"The cooler months are
a good time to try to gradu-
ally reduce your irrigation
to train your lawn to need
less water," said Sylvia
Durell, senior com-
munications coordinator.
"Overwatering makes your
lawn less drought-tolerant
and can encourage pests.
Using less water will
encourage deeper grass
and plant roots, which


makes them more drought-
tolerant."
Due to below-normal
rainfall and groundwater
conditions, all 16 counties
within the district are
under one-day-per-week
lawn watering restrictions
through Nov. 30.
Climatologists are pre-
dicting a La Nifia event,
which calls for a drier than
normal fall, winter and sp-
ring.

The district, as well as

Tampa Bay Water and the
Peace River/Manasota Reg-
ional Water Supply Autho-
rity, are concerned about
meeting demands during
the upcoming dry season,
which could set new his-
toric record lows. Skipping
a week of irrigation would
help conserve potable wa-
ter, which could be used for
public supply.

Red-Jay Kitchen's Fall Advertising Campaign was
a huge success, thanks to our decision to partner with
the Sun Herald. The very first week the ad ran, our new
leads tripled. The Sun Herald has helped turn our very
"cool'" summer into a "RED HOT" fall and winter.
Because of that, we were able to hire 14 new
employees and put 2 more installation vans on the
road. Even through Red -Jay Kitchens, Inc. has been in
business over 30 years, this proves that it still pays
to advertise but, it really pays
to advertise in the Sun-Herald.

We need a Fog Sucker.
Fog will be with us for the '

Changing of the guard at city hall


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

A new mayor and two
new council members were
sworn into office Wednes-
day, Nov. 14, signaling a shift
from a council perceived to
be pro-growth toward one
> of slow-growth.
' The event marked yet an-
other first a full house for
^ the swearing-in ceremony.
*: No one can remember
the last time there were so
,. few empty seats in council
chambers for the ceremony.
Usually, it's a handful of
family members and staff.
Last year's ceremony, for
example, drew an estimated
25 people.
Outgoing Mayor Fred
Hammett and Council
Member Jim Woods gave
their farewells to fellow
council members and well
wishers at Tuesday's council
meeting.
Outgoing Council Mem-
ber Bill Willson wasn't at the
meeting since his term
actually expired a week ago,
thanks to a change in the
timing of the certification of
the election results. Ham-
mett and Willson were ap-'
pointed to their seats.


Woods said he was happy
to get his life back, while
Hammett said he looked
forward to being able to talk
freely with his friends
Woods and Willson now
that they're not under the
restraints of the Florida
Sunshine Law.
Outgoing members
thanked fellow council mem-
bers for the experience and
wished the incoming mem-
bers -well in what they expect
to be tougher economic
times ahead for the city.
New Mayor Ed Martin
and new council members
Sue Lang and Ernie Zavod-
nyik assumed their seats on
the dais Wednesday to
thunderous applause.
The ceremony was a re-
spectful and at times jubi-
lant.
Mayor Martin had these
words for the 125-plus peo-
ple in attendance.
"I want to thank all the
people who believed in my
candidacy and that of Sue
Lang and Ernie Zavodnyik.
"I will do everything I can
to live up to your hopes and
aspirations.
"About 25 years ago
Peggy and I took part in a
swearing-in in Washington,

"It was a great honor and
I am appreciative to this day
for the opportunity to serve.
"I feel even more hon-
ored today because this
position of public trust
comes as the result of the
votes of so many people
who love this city of Venice
and who want us to help
preserve it and improve it
without changing its basic
nature.
"I look forward to work-
ing with the sitting council
members and learning from
their experiences and
insights.
"I believe we all have the
same basic goal to serve
this city well and I believe
we will work harmoniously
toward that end.
"I look forward to work-
ing with the city staff. In my
experience they are hard-
working and dedicated.
They, too, have much to
teach us.

n't cast in stone, and things
could change.


The Florida Housing and
Urban development office
still has to sign offon the draft
plan.
Not what they seem
,Prost pushed new city
council liaison Sue Lang, who
replaced outgoing member
Bill Willson, on whether she
supported the draft compre-
hensive plan, which increas-
es density in the area from 18
to 25 units.
"I don't think people have


a problem for 25 units for
truly low-income housing,"
Lang said, although she was
critical of the comp plan for
referring to "community"
housing, calling it ill-defined.
The housing authority
adopted its development
plan just two days before the
scheduled election of a resi-
dents council.
That drew a complaint
from Sarasota's Janie Poe
Residents Council Member
Valerie Buchand, who told


the housing authority it was
in violation of HUD rules that
require the residents council
be involved in all housing
authority decisions affecting
tenants.
Technically, she was incor-
rect. The VHA had disbanded
the residents council months
ago after HUD representative
concluded its elections were
not conducted by a third
party. Therefore, there is no
residents council at least
not until this Saturday, when


the election takes place.
Buchand was also critical
of the voucher program
being proposed by the VHA.
She has some experience as a
resident of Janie Poe, which
she said is currently in the
midst of its own relocation
program.
"We're concerned you
want to destroy and elimi-
nate the housing," Buchand
said. "Vouchers aren't all they
appear to be. Nobody wants
to talk about it. ... You are


preparing them to be home-
less in a year or two. When
happens when the landlord
raises (the rent) up another
$100? They are out the door.
When a landlord finds out a
voucher is involved, they
want every penny they can
get.
"Why can't it be affordable
to live in the community you
work in?"

seeking the required state
approvals prior to initiating
the work and those had not
been issued at this time.
"We will be following up
to determine whether Mr.
Farley obtained those ap-
provals prior to completing
the work. We were certainly
not made aware that he


would be completing the
work in that area.
"The coastal beach area
is a sensitive and highly reg-
ulated state environmental
asset that requires Florida
Department of Environ-
mental Protection approv-
als prior to initiating or
completing any work, par-


ticularly during sea turtle
nesting season. Completing
that work without proper
state approvals is a serious
state and local environmen-
tal crime. The city's cost al-
locations reflect the requir-
ed state approval costs that
are necessary to undertake
work at the beach inter-


face," Black wrote.
"This silly business is
surely worth a story," Clarke
told the Gondolier Sun in an
e-mail.
Clarke declined a request
for a copy of the photo "due
to the astounding litigious ill
will of the city manager in
turning his organization's


seven years (of) incompe-
tence in keeping Deertown
Gully running into a threat
against a civic-minded citi-
zen who regularly keeps the
stream open by digging a
channel to prevent an accu-
mulation of stinking stagnant
water from threatening the
whole neighborhood of the


Gulf Shores residents." ,
"There is no prohibition
sign preventing digging on
the beach," Clarke wrote.
"This is bureaucratic non-
sense running wild. Will
they go after the kids dig-
ging sand castles, too?"

DEAL from Page 1A


The Amalthea/Marriott
offer was one of five multi-
million dollar proposals
made in March to develop
415 acres of property of the
Venice Municipal Airport.,
The offers immediately
drew criticism from a diver-
gent group: golfers who
wanted to protect the 48-
,oear-o.ldl Tnake Venice Golf


Club from drastic change,
environmentalists who want-
ed to preserve the property
for wildlife and slow-growth
advocates.
After lengthy discussion,
city council agreed to hold
workshops on the proposals
later this year, but that plan
was put on hold indefinitely
byv citv manager Martv Black


earlier this month.
'Disappointed'
The airport development
proposals inspired a group,
of candidates to run for
three open seats on council.
Slow-growth candidates
Ed Martin, Sue Lang and
Ernie Zavodnyik were swept
into office on Nov. 6 by a 2-


to-1 margin.
"I am naturally disap-
pointed that we will not
have the opportunity to
complete our project," Mar-
dirossian said. "However, I
respect the democratic pro-
cess as reflected in the
recent election."
"It is our hope that in the
future we will have the


opportunity to present pro-
jects that will enhance the
assets of the community,"
he said.
The Amalthea/Marriott
plan called for building a
$300 million resort and PGA
golf course with a full-ser-
vice clubhouse and a 250-
slip marina. It called for an
office/professional building


to serve as the new gateway
entry into the airport.
According to a press rer
lease, Amalthea Properties
had planned to occupy
space in that building as its
corporate offices and offer
to lease space to aviation-
related businesses.

pieces. It would be an easier
task than trying to say 'yes' or
'no' about this whole thing."
Misnomer
Incumbent council mem-
bers agreed.
"This has been enormous
to get my hands around,"
said John Moore, who sup-
ported the extension. "There
are some pretty glaring issues
that we probably need to dis-
cuss. Hopefully, the public
will have a chance to' absorb
(its implications if it is provid-
ed to the public in) a more
piecemeal basis.".
Council Member Rick
Tacy questioned the "village"
concept referred to through-
out the report


"You've got to come up
with something else, like
neighborhoods," Tacy said."
Artificial villages' are not vil-
lages. They're just areas of the
village or city ofVenice."
Simmonds agreed, calling
the village concept a mis-
nomer.
"Village means some sort
of self-sustaining to me.
That's not what it is at all," he
said. "Sometime before we
get through with this let's find
a different name for it"
The comp plan under-
went a three-month review
process by the Department
of Community Affairs.
City planners spent the
last few months gathering
the requested data and


analysis, and making chang-
es to numerous policies.
Weighing in
Thursday's workshop gave
the public a chance to weigh
in on the plan. Of the dozen
who testified, all supported
the extension.
Golden Beach resident
Randall Green said he was
shocked and upset after see-
ing the original draft plan.
He, and others, reiterated
their disappointment with
the Envision Venice process
- the same process lauded
by state and city planners.
"There is something
wrongwith the process when
one day you open the
Internet and there sits two


years ofworkyou haven't ever
heard of before," Green said.
He said there was no rea-
son for the Golden Beach
"village" designation, since
some of the buildings at the
northern end of the section
are already 11 stories.
"I don't know what logic
it has to call it a village
there," he said.
In southern reaches of
Golden Beach, Green said,
at least 16 buildings could
increase their height under
the draft plan by at least
three stories.
"That height shouldn't be
included," he said. "That's
why I think it's not right for
Golden Beach."


Shadowing
Resident Jim Bennett said
he was concerned about
plans for North Venice. He
called for a second access
road to reach development
west of Interstate 75 before
increasing any building
height or density in the area.
Bird Bay resident Jack
Gallagher objected to the six-
story height limit skirting the
Bird Bay development.
"We are concerned about
(buildings) over the 45 feet. It
just doesn't seem appropriate


shadowing that area,'
Gallagher said.
Kitt McKeon may have
best articulated the crowd's
concerns Thursday
'A great deal of us fought
against six and eight stories,"
McKeon said. "I don't want tq
have to fight every dog-gone
building with that kind of
height. Let's lock that into the
plan so we don't have to fight
these individual'battles."

Court's advice on audits may not sway politicians


An appellate court
'narrowly struck down
a county charter pro-
,vision on election
audits. While praising
its intent, the judges
said election laws
should be a legislative
function.


BY JACK GURNEY
'PELICAN PRESS

When a divided Second
District Court of Appeal
recently ruled 2-1 to strike
down the Sarasota County
Charter amendment that
requires 5 percent of paper
ballots to be compared with
inachine counts before
election results are certified,
it issued a challenge.
The judges praised the
amendment's intent to
ensure that every vote is
accurately counted before
advising that efforts to mod-
fy state election laws
should be addressed by law-
makers. Then they kicked
the audit issue up to the
Florida Supreme Court for
.further review.
Now the high court has
the option of either resum-
ing the constitutional de-
bate without a costly appeal
from the Sarasota citizens
group that authored the
amendment, or waiting for
an appeal to be filed and
then reconsidering argu-
ments already made by
both sides.
In either case, the tedious
process could drag out
indefinitely and leave the
natter unresolved through
next year's busy general
election cycle. It's a dim
prospect for election reform
advocates who have worked
hard to achieve changes. -
"We can. communicate
with Secretary of State Kurt
Browning's o--ffice to see
5Where he is coming from on
'his issue," State Rep. Keith
fitzgerald, D-Sarasota, said,
Sand then gauge whether
&here is a willingness on the
legislative front to consider
voting law changes."
,Nothing'
SIt's doubtful Fitzgerald
ill get far.
"I can converse with the
,hairs of committees that
,vould have to consider leg-
islation," he said, "but on
this issue they will probably
lay 'no way,' so I'd be reluc-
tant to use up a bill slot if it
isn't even going to be
,leard."
,; The charter amendment
tat requires a 5 percent
Pthand-to-eye" audit of pa-
per ballots and machine
"counts before election re-
?sults are certified is more
stringent than the state's 1-2
percent audit of systems
days after elections are con-
cluded.
"What the state currently
loes is irrelevant," said
Sarasota for Fair Elections
,President Kindra Muntz,
*vho helped

2006 charter
amendment
that q both

With the.


required the 5 percent au-

t "The current state policy
(s to audit the system after


equipment is locked away
and the results have been
certified," she said. "It's a
historical anecdote that has
nothing to do with ensuring
elections. Did the doors
open on time? Did the lights
come on? It's nothing."

Feds agree to review state water decisions


Florida uses an impaired surface waters rule
and methodology to provide the list.
Environmental groups sued when federal
authorities failed to review the state system.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Federal environmental
authorities have finally ag-
reed to review all of Florida's
controversial decisions about
polluted water bodies and
determine whether they are
consistent with U.S. Clean
Water Act standards.
The out-of-court settle-
ment ends five years of liti-
gation. "Florida has been
trying to avoid having hun-
dreds of water bodies appear
on an impaired waters list it
submits to the U.S. Environ-
mental Protection Agency,"
said Clean Water Network of


Florida Director Linda You-
ng. "It has not been using
adopted water standards."
The settlement was sign-
ed last month by a consor-
tium of Florida environmen-
tal groups among them
the Clean Water Network, Si-
erra Club and Florida Public
Interest Research Group -
plus the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
and the EPA.
If adhered to, the agree-
ment should help commu-
nities such as Sarasota Cou-
nty determine which water
bodies require cleanup eff-
orts to filter out pollutants
from agricultural and storm


water runoff, domestic was-
tewater and other sources
of filth.
The county is currently
attempting to cope with wa-
ter quality issues on more
than a dozen area creeks
and rivers. Among them is
the "Wild and Scenic" My-
akka River, which has low
dissolved oxygen levels that
are indicative of pollution
problems.
Other area waters of con-
cern are Alligator Creek,
Blackburn Bay, Catfish Creek,
Lower Creek, Curry Creek,
Elligraw Creek, Forked Creek,
Gottfried Creek, Lemon Bay,
North Creek, Roberts Bay,
South Creek and West Clark
Lake.
The law
Most of the problems are
associated with nutrients
carried in storm water and


wastewater runoff that cause
algae growth and reduced
oxygen levels. Several drain-
age creeks have long histo-
ries of elevated fecal col-
iform levels caused by ani-
mal and human waste.
Under federal law, Florida
environmental authorities
are supposed to help devise
and finance surface water
cleanup programs that are
carried out by communities.
But conflicting policies about'
what rises to the level of pol-
lution has slowed the pro-
cess.
In 1999, Florida lawmak-
ers adopted aWatershed Res-
toration. Act that was sup-
posed to identify polluted
water bodies that fail to meet
U.S. Clean Water Act stan-
dards. State environmental
officials devised an "impair-
ed surface waters" rule to
serve as a guide.


When a consortium of en-
vironmental organizations
became concerned that fed-
eral authorities had failed to
review the rule, and it was
being arbitrarily used to re-
move many streams, lakes
and estuaries from long es-
tablished lists of polluted
water bodies, they sued.
Unconvinced
The cased has bounced
around the federal court sys-
tem for the last five years,
with rulings both for and
against the Environmental
Protection Agency. Mean-
while, federal authorities
have continued to maintain
one list of polluted Florida
waters and state authorities
another.
"It's truly unfortunate
environmental groups have
to sue the government to
secure protections for their


community waters that were
intended by Congress," You-
ng said. "Sadly, Florida has
not stopped pursuing a way
to get around the Clean Wa-
ter Act."
Since his election in 2006,
Florida Gov. Charlie Crist has
made overtures to the envi-
ronmental community and
promised his administration
will more vigorously pursue
cleanup programs. The Flor-
ida Chapter of the Sierra Club
recently recognized his eff-
orts with an award.
But Young remains un-
convinced. "We have re-
ceived no help from Gov.
Crist in this area," she said.
"The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
is still doing the same stuff.
It doesn't understand this
settlement. It doesn't want
to understand this settle-
ment"


Council OK's buying new aerial fire truck


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Venice City Council aut-
horized a million-dollar pur-
chase for a new fire depart-
ment ladder truck and ap-
proved YMCA membership
for city employees on Tues-
day, the day before three
new members took office.
Council authorized the
fire engine purchase from
the 1-cent sales surtax fund
and capital reserves.
The 2008 Pierce Velocity
aerial truck, and the neces-
sary equipment to outfit the
unit, will cost $995,000.


The engine will be locat-
ed at Fire Station No.1 next
to city hall, since most high-
rises within city boundaries
are located on the island.
"It can reach all the high-
rises in Venice," Fire Chief
John Reed said.
He's already tested the'
ladder truck to make sure it
can reach the rooftop of the
Waterfront condominiums
on the Intracoastal.
As part of the agreement,
the existing ladder truck will
be rehabilitated at no cost
to the city and relocated to
the new Fire Station No. 3
on Laurel Road, said City


Manager Marty Black.
The city's only ladder truck
had been out of commission
for the past few months,
putting the city in the posi-
tion of relying on the county
for backup should the need
arise.
Delivery of the new fire
engine is expected in March
or April.
The new 100-foot-reach
ladder truck will replace the
current 100-foot-reach truck
purchased back in 1994, pro-
viding the city with an aerial
ladder reserve unit it cur-
rently lacks.
Aerial ladders are critical


to multi-story rescues, to
provide elevated water st-
reams to douse fires.
The truck is manufac-
tured in Wisconsin, and will
be further equipped in a
Bradenton plant before mak-
ing its way to Venice.
Benefits
Council also approved a
12-month agreement bet-
ween the city of Venice and
the South County Family
YMCA for city employee
membership at a cost of
$20,500. The program would
be paid for out of the Group
Life and Health Insurance


Fund.
Council's action drew a
few negative comments

tion from the same people

Venice Regional campus goes smoke-free


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

Venice Regional Medical
Center went totally smoke-
free Thursday, Nov. 15 on
Great American Smokeout
Day.
"We think it is our
i responsibility to provide a
healthy environment for
employees and patients and
the community," said Mel-
. odyTrimble, CEO.
Going smokeless has
been a long time in the
making at the hospital.
More than a year ago,
STrimble said, she and others
decided to become known
as a healthy place to work.
The hospital installed walk-
ing trails and posted one-
mile markers inside and
outside the facility to en-
courage walking by employ-
ees. Pedometers were pro-
- vided to employees who
wanted to measure their
steps.
Trimble supports other
measures that help encour-
age healthful living, includ-
ing administration-paid
quit-smoking tools to help
employees give up ciga-
rettes if they choose and'

OUR VIEW



What's in it for the rest of us?


Toward the end of a hearing on the
proposed Thomas Ranch develop-
ment in Englewood, a critical ques-
tion was posed: "Why here? Why is
this the place?"
The question came from Anne Mc-
Clung, Sarasota County's general manag-
er of planning; whose department oppos-
es a change in the county's comprehen-
sive plan. The change would allow densi-
ty to rise from the current 1,072 housing
units to 7,125 on the 2,850-acre tract ad-
joining the current Thomas Ranch-West
Villages development in North Port.
That basic question has not been
answered yet. And when the issue comes
back to the Sarasota County Commission
next spring, county officials must insist
on an answer. They should insist on
much more, but this is the nut of the
issue.
It's important to note that the commis-


sion's 3-2 vote only transfers the proposal
to the state Department of Community
Affairs for review. When it comes back for
a final look, there's no guarantee the com-
mission will approve.
Commissioner Shannon Staub, who
represents South County, voted to send
the project ahead to the state, but warned
it did not mean she would approve it later.
From a broad point of view, the plan
from developers Thomas Ranch/Fourth
Quarter Properties has attractive aspects.
The project is a mixed-use, cluster
development that would use a cohesive
"village-style" approach connected by
internal roads and trails built by the
developer. The planned north-south
internal road and extension of Manasota
Beach Road to the east could relieve traf-
fic elsewhere.
There are provisions for affordable
housing. Environmentally friendly land


use and "green construction" standards
have been promised. All are development
goals set by the county.
The potential long-range benefits of
the village development process are posi-
tive. That point was made by Com-
missioner Joseph Barbetta a longtime
planning commission member associat-
ed with slow-growth policies whose "yes"
vote surprised many observers.
"This will develop one way or another,
but this gives us control," he said.
It is estimated that daily traffic would
soar from 4,030 trips in the current desig-
nation to 43,051 trips with the higher den-
sity How will we deal with that impact?
Key to county staff's objection is "ca-
pacity," which must be addressed as part
of the process. "Capacity" is another way
of saying, "Do we need more housing?"
The short answer is clearly "no."
As the staff analysis points out, we cur-


rently have a housing glut. Even though
the build-out schedule is five to 25 years
from now, there are many large develop-
ments already under way on Thomas
Ranch and South Venice, many thou-
sands, of plots in North Port and the
potential for more urban density in newly
annexed portions of Venice.
The comprehensive plan, by its nature,
already centers urban development in ur-
ban zones, not at the fringes. That means
there's no need for a large development of
this kind, and certainly not in this place.
So why approve it? In the case of the
Babcock Ranch proposal in Charlotte
County, local governments were able to
win major concessions in exchange for
the right to develop. Sarasota could insist
on the transfer of development rights
elsewhere and investments in infrastruc-
ture in neighboring communities.
Nothing less makes sense.


Malice in



Wonderland


MARY KAY RUPPEL
GUEST COLUMNIST

Oh, I can't believe it. I
think I mary have 'fallen
down the rabbit hole-and
I'm attending the "Caucus
Party." Why, it looks just like
a legislative meeting in
Tallahassee with everyone
running around in circles
and nothing getting accom-
plished.
Now, I'm at a tea party.
Well, at this tea party I'm
confronted by the Mad
Hatter, the March Hare and
the Dormouse. They anger
me with their riddles and
tall stories about unregulat-
ed growth in Venice.
I become so angry that I
leave their stupid tea party.
Unfortunately, a lot of other
folks believe them and stay.
Just as I'm about to crawl
out of the rabbit hole, the
Queen of Hearts shouts,
"Off with their heads."
Everyone is so frightened
that they comply with her
wishes and put the Mad
Hatter, the March Hare and
the Dormouse in charge of
Venice.
What's so awful here? I
yell at all of them. They
reply that mostly they hate
The Waterfront condomini-
ums overlooking our beau-
tiful waterways.
"Is it a crime to provide
beautiful residences for Ve-
netians that utilize the
view?" I respond.
I see those condos as the
perfect environmental fit
for that particular location
and a vast improvement. I
wonder if anyone actually
remembers what that area
looked like previously. I'm
sure that Tweedledee and
Tweedledum could have
come up with something
more height appropriate -
perhaps another conve-
nience store or gas station.
As I was trying to get back
to Earth, I recalled that on a
recent visit to Venice my son
and daughter-in-law com-
mented on the lovely new


structures as we were dri-
ving over the bridge to the
island. I told them that a lot
of residents were unhappy
with them. They could not
understand why and nei-
ther can I.
Get me out of this rabbit
hole before I go stark, star-
ing, raving mad puleeze!
OK, I'm back to Earth
now and facing the realities
instead of Lewis Carroll's
imaginative fiction or am
I?
Somehow~the Queen of
Hearts has taken over, and I
begrudgingly assume that
we won't be getting a lovely
waterfront hotel here or any
of the things that will only
add to the charm and uniq-
tieness of our great city on
the Gulf.
The majority of the
squawkers apparently agreed
that we needed to continue
to have a 1-cent sales surtax
on all of our future purchas-
es. Obviously, even the usu-
ally thrifty senior citizens
agreed with that tax.
I do wonder why. Was it
for the schools? I thought
that the recent special tax
referendum that will bring
the schools $250 million
from taxpayers over the
next four years was quite
generous indeed. Guess
not! Maybe the voters felt
that the Planned Parent-
hood operation needed ex-
tra funding.
Personally, I can hardly
cover my homeowner's in-
surance, property taxes, ris-
ing gas prices, ad infinitum,
myself, so I voted against
the 1-cent tax. Selfish me.
I feel like Alice when she
fell into the pool of tears.
The little white rabbit
helped her out of that, but
who is going to assist Venice
in climbing up to the task of
fulfilling its destiny?
With some visitor/resi-
dent-friendly appropriate
additions to our town, and
without the fearmongers
who warn that we will
become another Sarasota or
Naples or, God forbid, a
Miami we can be the
wonderland that our forefa-
thers envisioned.

Evacuation route? More like a parking lot


Cut a check. I was amused at the writing of guest
columnist Tom Minnich. He describes himself as a neigh-
borhood activist who became involved with the needs of
the 130,000 people who are part of the so-called River Road
region. Minnich is unhappy about the delay in getting the
$73 million needed to convert River Road into an elevated
four-lane highway. Here's a simple solution. Get the job
done right away by getting each of the 130,000 people
involved to send in a check for $561.1 I see thousands of cars
on River Road now, but where are the buses that could be
taking all these people to work? What happened to trans-
portation planning? And stop calling River Road an evacu-
ation route. In case of a big storm, 1-75 is not even big
enough to serve as a parking area for the residents living in
the north part of the county.


Clueless. To the person
who made the comment on
public streets that person
needs to have a clue about
the merchants in the Venice
downtown area. We've paid
more taxes than any other
people around. We collect
more tax money and pay
more tax money than the
little piddly amount that he
pays. He probably lives in a
mobile home; or better yet,
he probably doesn't live in a
mobile home. He probably
lives in a condo on the
beach and doesn't pay any
taxes. The merchants pay
the majority of taxes in this
city. Give him a clue.
Unloaded. The majority
of nonmillionaire citizens
would simply like to hold on
to the homes they've work-
ed for. Taxes are bad
enough, but I can pay those.
It's the blankety-blank in-
surance that's killing me.
I'm glad Venice was voted
one of the best places to
retire by some magazine. It-
might be the best place to
retire if you're loaded, but
then who's going to wait
tables, the lesser million-
aires? But then, maybe they

Bee smart. I'm reading
an article from Tropical Bob,

py about bees that are in his

house of bees. Has he not
watched on the Discovery

Does he not know that we

have found a better way to
do this? My goodness, we
need these bees to keep our
food population going. He
just spent a whole lot of
money to kill them off, and
he's supposedly one of our
biggest talkers about the
environment?
Poor planning. Here we
go again. Traffic problems at
the grade school on the
island ofVenice, what a joke.
When the old school was
there, they made the deci-
sion to rebuild a new grade

are stuck with a traffic prob-
lem for the 50 years. The
school board and the school
superintendent should stand
out there every day and help
with the traffic congestion
that they created. Why
should the Venice police or
the Sarasota County Sher-
iff's Office have to use many
officers simply because of
poor planning on the part of
the school board? Hopefully
the school board is billed for
the cost of this service. It
was an emotional decision,
not a practical decision to
put the school where it is

caused the traffic prob-
lem.

are a joke. They're a waste of

In today's paper, John Ask

ciation are attributed with
saying that the people want-
ed the medallions. Those
civic association meetings
are a joke. Nobody bothers
to attend. I'd be very inter-
ested in knowing what per-
centage of Nokomis resi-
dents actually attend these
meetings. I've lived here for
three years, my parents for
many more years, and I
never heard of the medal-
lions until suddenly they
started appearing. It's ri-
diculous. Save the time, save
the money. Let the busi-
nesses have their open
roads.


Green, green grass



muddies our waters


STEPHEN BAUMANN
GUEST COLUMNIST


I first learned about Flor-
ida gardening from an old
friend.
His advice was this:
You plant something and
throw a lot of fertilizer on it.
Every time you go out to fer-
tilize one thing, bring the
bag along and throw it on
everything else.
It'll grow. And it won't
hurt anything.
Years later, I can say this:
yes and no. It will grow, but
it might hurt something.
Fertilizer runoff degrades
everyone's waterways. And
in Sarasota County, overfer-
tilizing also can get you in
dutch with the law.
Sarasota put strong re-
strictions on fertilizer use
earlier this year. Similar
ordinances were considered
by the Punta Gorda City

at the North Port Library.
Here are the new rules:
You can't apply fertilizer
containing nitrogen or
phosphorus from June 1
until the end of September.
This includes organic fertil-
izer the stuff that comes
in bags but not organic
fertilizer that comes directly
out of a cow or compost
pile.
No fertilizer can have
more than 2 percent phos-
phorus. No big deal. Most
Florida soils have plenty of
phosphorus to begin with.
All fertilizer must con-
tain more than 50 percent of
slow-release fertilizer.
Check the fertilizer package
before you buy.
You can't apply more
than 4 pounds of fertilizer
per 1,000 square feet per
year. This is harder to calcu-
late, but check the bag or
call the extension service.
No tossing fertilizer on
impervious surfaces or into
stormwater systems. In
other words, when you
spread fertilizer be careful
to keep it off the sidewalks
and out of streams and


lakes. You also need a de-
flector when using a broad-
cast spreader.
You can't spread fertiliz-
er within 10 feet of a water-
way. That's called a fertiliz-
er-free zone.
If you are caught break-
ing these regulations, you
could be fined up to $500. In
fact, Sarasota County has
printed up fertilizer cita-
tions, and the extension
office passed them out.
It's unlikely individuals
will be hauled off to the
pokey or even fined in the
foreseeable future. But
other parts of the law deal
with professional landscap-
ers, and the county is more
likely to be tough with
them.
The regulations only ap-
ply to unincorporated Sara-
sota County, although Ven-
ice is considering similar
rules, Post said. It's a good
idea for North Port, Char-
lotte County and even the
county my old frierid lives
in, because too much fertil-
izer might make your front
yard prettier, but it'll make
our water murkier.

Venice drops second preseason game


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High School
boys basketball team fin-
ished the preseason 0-2
after losing to the IMG Bas-
ketball Academy 43-35 Wed-
nesday.
Venice led 22-15 at half-
time, only to suffer a sec-
ond-half collapse' in which
they were outscored 28-13.
"I think it's still the same
thing," Head Coach Steve Ca-
vallaro said. "We have spots
where we do things really,
really well and then we have
some runs where we're not
too consistent."
Venice played one half of
solid basketball, turning the
ball over just four times. The
Indians led by as much as 11
in the third quarter. Then
the inconsistencies kicked
in.
The Indians turned it
over 14 times in the second
half as they surrendered the
lead about midway through
the fourth quarter.
"We had a lot of turn-
overs towards the end and
that has a lot to do with the
experience," Cavallaro said.
"We really only have two
kids on the floor that have
any kind of experience be-


ing in a tight, varsity-level
,basketball game. We only
have two kids on the floor
that have ever been through
that. For the rest it's a new
experience for them and
that's what we want, that's
what preseason is all about"
Tyler Christian and Kyle
Jutras led Venice, scoring.12
and 8 points, respectively.
"I thought the whole pre-
season tournament was
good for us," Cavallaro said.
"It accomplished what we
wanted it to accomplish
and that was to show us the
things we need to work on
better. It also gave an opp-
ortunity to give a chance to
a bunch of kids that don't
have any varsity experience
or at least any varsity expe-
rience in a close varsity
game."
Venice's regular season
tips off Nov. 23 at Lemon
Bay High. School in the
Optimist Showcase. The In-
dians open with Golden
Gate High School at 4:30
p.m. Friday and then take
on South Fort Myers High
School at 3:45 p.m. Satur-
day.

Indians-Hurricanes


soccer ends in tie


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


Two of the best girls soc-
cer teams in Class 5A, Dis-
trict 12 faced off Wednes-
day night and neither
emerged "as "the district
front-runner.
Venice High School and
Manatee High School shut
each other, out and ended
the game in a 0-0 tie.
"It could have gone
either way," Venice Head
Coach Sheldon Chamber-
lain said. "Both ends had a
couple of opportunities. It
was a good outcome on a
visiting field for us."
The Indians had plenty
of chances to get on the bo-
ard with six shots on goal.
The Hurricanes had their
fair share of opportunities
as well, shooting the ball
nine times. Only one of
those shots was on goal, but
Manatee also had a goal
called back thanks to an off-
sides penalty.
Freshman forward Dana
LaRocque led Venice with
three shots on goal, but the


Manatee keeper saved all
three.
"It was a fairly even game
because both of us had ch-
ances to score and our de-
fenses were doing well,",Ch-
amberlain said. "One of our.
-top scorers is Dana and,
their defender was shutting
her down and shutting her
down."
Defense was the name of
the game for a Venice team
that couldn't close the deal
on offense. .
"(Senior defender Kris-
tina) Swanson played a re-
ally good game with (sop-
homore midfielder Coll-
een) Murphy right in front
of her and then out on the
sides (junior defender)
Ariel (Young) and on de-
fense (sophomore defen-
der) Jessica (Lambracht) ,
she was right on them all
the time. Our midfield was
working hard and winning
balls and we possessed the
ball in that first part of that
game," Chamberlain said.

SCOUTING REPORT


CapaCoral


NOv. 16: Venice Indians vs. Cape Coral SeahaWks
(RegionalQOuarterfnal)


Cape.Coral Offense vs. Venice Defense:
" The Seahawks and quarterback David Pasquale are known for their 149.6-yards-per-game passing attack, but the Venice pass defense is no stranger to an offense
like this one;.Against Casey Kelly and the Salasota aerial attack, Which puts up even gaudier numbers (173 y/g), Venice intercepted the ball three times and surren-
dered only 62 passing yards. Cape Coral may have.to rely on its running game to keep the Indian defense honest. The running game is no joke, either, putting up
158.7 yards per game. Cape Coral's offensive line lines up in a two-point stance on every play, though, making it easier for defenders to run through and into the back-
field. Czuprynski, Oriol and company should be p to the challenge. Edge: Venice

Cape Coral Defense vs.Venice Offense:.
S Last week was the-first time the Indians have failed to reach 100 rushing yards. They won't have that problem against Cape Coral. The Seahawks give up 201.3 rush-
ing yards per g6r6'Agdinst"iundefeated Naples; they surrendered 447 rushing yards. Against winless Estero, they gave up 173 rushing yards. Venice averages 206
rushing yards per.game Look for Paul Costanzo,. Jimmy Laurie, Cody Reinhart and maybe even Matt Brogan to have huge nights. Cape Coral doesn't give up big
numbers through the air, just 71.2 yards.per galne, but that probably has more to do with the fact that the opposition doesn't really need to pass. Edge: Venice

Special Teams:
SJust three weeks ago this would have been a landslide edge to Cape. Coral. Seahawks kicker Brandon Mulloy is six for six on field goals, with a season-long of 43
yards, and 30'f'30 .on e.ra'!points. Simply.put, he is flawless. Venice has had its troubles in the kicking game, but the addition of soccer-player-turned-football-play- cop. cord
er Ed Delahahty'f.as benefited the kicking unit. Eric Cangelosi has improved and last week Delahanty nailed a 35-yard field goal. Now Venice has added volleyball- ~ khOa
coach-turned-kicking-cdach .Brian Wheatley to the fold. His volleyball team reached the regional final; maybe some of that will rub off on the football team. Edge:
Even.


Intangibles: ,
Venice has the home-field "advantage,"..but,'so-far this season it has been anything but. Two of the Indians' three losses have come at home. Even when Venice wins
at home, itWs'omre.tobe expectedd thatthey willbhave a sluggish start. If Venice doesn't come out on the first snap ready to play, Cape Coral might just hit them in
the mouth with sorhe,quick scores from the passing game. The Indians have also been their own worst enemy this season. The turnover bug had seemingly sub-
sided, but it reared its ugly head again against Booker last week when Venice lost possession three times. By the way, Cape Coral is undefeated on the road this
season. Edge: Cape Coral


cape Caal
*igchuhd
.t~tho


Overall: :;- t ..
Last v-eZ hii b6r d 1 rtonity to'ave their mark with an 8-2 record, the Indians' second best in 25'years. This week, a playoff win would really make
this a great turnaround year after last year's 1-9 mark. Cape Coral knows it doesn't have the defense to stop Venice's running attack, they can only hope to slow it
down. If this game turns into a shootout, Venice won't be able to keep up. The Venice defense has to show up to play from the opening kickoff. If they can do that, they
are just too good to let Cape Coral score very many points. The Venice running game will have a field day if the running backs can hold onto the football. Overall edge:

Through thick and thin, the Venice
Shrine Club has been making a difference
in the city and elsewhere.
Tomorrow, Nov. 17, the Venice group will
celebrate its golden anniversary.
The club was chartered by the Egypt
Temple, AASONMS, in Tampa Oct. 18,1957.
Frank D. Roebuck was the first "Noble" to
serve as club president, or "potentate." The
current club president is Carroll G. Scribner
whose fez is nearly identical to that worn by
Roebuck 50 years ago.
"The number of members fluctuates
with the age of the people," Scribner said.
"It was up to 190 but is down to 140 now
because of age and disability and because
some moved away."
What does not fluctuate is that Shriners
like to have fun and help children.
Venice Shriners are easily recognized at
the various city parades where members
dressed as Keystone Kops entertain the
crowds. On other days they are raising
money for Shriners hospitals, volunteering
at those hospitals or doing other good work
in the community.
What is the Shrine?
Considered the world's oldest fraternity,
the Shrine began in New York City in 1870
when a group of Master Masons got togeth-
er at the Knickerbocker Cottage restaurant
to form a group stressing fun and fellow-
ship over the ritual so important at Masonic
Lodge meetings. The group. included a
famous actor, Billy Florence, and Dr. Walter
Fleming, a prominent physician, who was
devoted to the idea of fraternalism, so
devoted that he drafted the ritual, designed
the emblem and costumes and declared
members should wear a red fez, which they
do to this day. There were 13 members in


that original group.
Within eight years, and follow-
ing a promotional campaign,
there were 425 Shriners in
13 temples: five in New
York, two in Ohio and the
rest in Vermont, Penn-
sylvania, Connecticut,
Iowa, Michigan and
Massachusetts.
In the early
years, Shriners
earned their reputa-
tion as the fun-loving .
arm of Free Masonry. The
first big push into philanthrop-
ic work occurred during a yel-
low fever epidemic that hit
Jacksonville in 1988. Shriners
traveled there to assist victims.
" A year later, Shriners went to
the assistance of victims of the
Johnstown flood. Before the
turn of the century 71 of the
country's 79 Shrine temples were
engaged in philanthropy as well as
fun.
In 1906, the Shrine Circus was
formed and gave its first perfor-
mance in Detroit. Shriners were look-
ing for a common cause. Shriners
gave money to San Francisco after
the earthquake, to war relief dur-
ingWorldWar I and then in 1919, a
Philadelphia Shrine Potentate
elect discovered the Scottish Rite Hos-
pital for Crippled Children in Atlanta.
Shrine hospitals
A year later, plans were made to created
the Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children
and each member was to donate $2 per
year to the cause. The first such hospital
opened in 1922 in Shreveport, La. Today
there are 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children,


including one that was dedicated on
Oct. 16, 1985, in Tampa. Three
Shriners Hospitals treat
burn victims and 19 treat
crippled children. The
22 hospitals are main-
tained by 191 Shrine
temples, which to-
gether have more
than 515,000
members. To
become a Sh-
riner one
must first be-
come a Master Mason
in the Freemasonry
Fraternity.
"No. one
realizes the am-
ount of medical
care available at
those hospitals,
and at no cost,"
Scribner said.
"There are 758
children in an area
40 miles around
Sarasota being
helped by Shriner
Hospitals and
doctors."
They are support-
ed by members
of the Sarasota
and Venice
Shrines.
"North American
Shriners raise enough
money to keep the organi-
zation's 22 hospitals run-
ning," Scribner said. "Never
will a parent be given a bill
of any kind. In serious
cases we will even move the parents."
Shriners support the hospitals entirely,


taking no government money, he said.
Venice Shrine
Members meet monthly at the Venice
Masonic Temple and for weekly luncheons
at the Elks Club. Additional meetings are
called when members are working on spe-
cial projects.
The club's first fundraiser was a circus -
in 1962, two years after the Ringling Bros.
and Barnum & Bailey Circus moved its win-
ter quarters to Venice. That fledgling Shrine
circus netted $600. Later, Shrine members
manned the parking lot at the Venice Circus
Arena for the Ringling show's preview per-
formances, netting thousands of dollars for
Shriners Hospitals. That ended in 1992
when the Ringling show gave up its Venice
winter quarters. Members switched to col-
lecting recyclables for a time and finally to
holding Hospital Benefit Days.
The list of past potentates includes
Robert S. Baynard (1961) who was an early
Venice resident, Dr. Robert E. Chable (1962)
who was the pastor of the Venice United
Church of Christ in the 1960s and 1970s,
Donald-Shrode (1969) of the jewelry store
and attorney Roger D. Isphording (1972).
During those early days, there were no
summer meetings. That changed in 1979
when the club began year-round meetings.
Today, club members meet 10 months a
year at the new Elks Club on Knights Trail
Road.
In 1981, when a new temple was formed
in Sarasota and Bradenton, the Venice club
became a part of Sahib Temple. Sarasota
area Shriners regularly bring their musi-
cians and float to Venice for parades, dress-
ing like Arabs in long robes.
The following year, the Venice club form-
ed a hospital committee. Members visit
with prospective patients and help Venice

Hang on to your sanity,
ladies and gentlemen. It's
time for News from Ec-
ineville.
Well, Ecineville's new
mayor Latka Von Rigen-
housen offered a figurative
olive branch to the opposi-
fion Monday after he de-
feated Juan Suarez for ma-
yor and two candidates
who affiliated themselves
with Von Rigenhousen de-
feated two incumbents for
city council.
"We believe all Ecine-
villians should look for-
ward to the opportunity to
work together to build a
brighter and better future
for Ecineville. I especially
look forward to working
with my opposition in this
campaign. Together we
can find consensus and
move our city into the
future," said Von Rigen-
housen.
Well, it was a nice try.
"We deny having any-
thing to do with the
bumper stickers or posters
that are appearing around
town," said Citizens for
Profitable Government
President I.K. Ikeman.
If you haven't seen one
of the bumper stickers or

called a meeting of all for-
mer council members,
mayors, chamber of com-
mercialism members, un-
ion thugs, business lead-
ers, unreconstructed hip-
pies and two grouper fish-
erman. The meeting was
held Tuesday afternoon at
city hall.
AsVon Rigenhousen en-
tered the meeting, a hush
fell over the assembled
guests.
"I accept the word of
CPG President Ikeman,
that neither he nor anyone
in his organization, or for
that matter any of those
who were opposed to the
slow-growth candidates,
had anything to do with
these horrible bumper
stickers or posters," said
Von Rigenhousen.
There was silence.


"I believe Mr. Ikeman
because, thanks to the
hard work of our fine po-
lice chief Trudy Redford,
we have identified those
responsible for these rep-
rehensible bumper stick-
ers and posters," said Von
Rigenhousen.
The person who made
these terrible signs is Mel
Hackett Brooks Rooney
Winters III.
According to the report
detailing Ecineville Police
Department's investiga-
tion, Winters III is a covert
operative for the Satirical
Troublemaking Writers of
America.
The report further sta-
tes that the STWA has per-
petuated these activities in
cities and towns all over
the country with the spe-
cific intent of providing
material for satire and
comedy writers.
"We are going to prose-
cute this gentleman to the
full extent of the law," said
Von Rigenhousen.
Well, this is Ted "I'm a
reporter, I'm a reporter"
Rank reporting. I'll see you
next issue with more news
from Ecineville. Until then,
remember, it's.all about the
medication here in Ecine-
ville..

Five-year-old Sandi is a big, fluffy, freckle-faced love! She is

She's got the best of both worlds, the looks and the smarts!
She could probably stand to lose a few pounds (she weighs
in at 81 pounds), but a loving family would be happy to take
her for walks and get her the exercise she needs. Is your

.
ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST ,

The public is invited to
hear State Rep. Doug Holder
address the members of the
*South Venice Civic Asso-
-ciation next Monday, Nov.
"19, 7 p.m. at the South Ven-
ice Community Center, 720


Alligator Drive, South Ven-
ice Beach.
The two pressing issues
are the increase in property
taxes when the economy is
slowing down, and the
insurance rate crises; also,
the reason for the cutback
in county services due to
mandates at the state level.
County Commissioner Joe
Barbetta advised the audi-
ence last month to look to
the state for answers to
these questions, and we will
be anxiously waiting to
learn from Mr. Holder.
The business meeting
will follow with refresh-
ments and camaraderie to
close out the evening.
On another matter of


deep concern is the status
of bringing central water
and sewer into our commu-
nity. We have been told no
action will be taken until
after 2009. However, we
have recently learned that
near Datura Road and U.S.
41 South central water pipes
are being installed this
month. The State Health
Department has found
groundwater contamination
and Sarasota County Utilities
will be constructing water
lines on Victoria, Orange and
Taconic roads.
Property owners in that
area with wells that are cut-
rently not affected can also
hook up to central water.
However, since they do not


have contaminated wells at
this time, they will have to
pay a capacity fee of $2,720
per single family unit plus
other costs associated with
water lines. Terms can be
arranged. For a look at the
map where the specific lots
and area affected, a copy is
available at the SVCA office.
Can you believe that be-
fore my column next week,
Thanksgiving Day will be
over. We better start dieting
now to get ready. Have a
safe and enjoyable happy
Thanksgiving!

ciation development direc-

40,000 Florida Realtors will access Venice properties


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST


A big bonus for property
sellers and buyers will result
from the recently announ-
ced merger of Multiple List-'
ing -Services used by Real-.
tors in this area.
Five associations, includ-
ing the Venice Area Board of
Realtors, will join eight ex-
- isting- boards in the Mid-
Florida Multiple Listing Ser-


vices.
Properties listed by Real-
tor members of the Venice
Area Board of Realtors, part of
the 8,000-strong Southwest
Florida boards, will now' be
accessible to a further 32,000
Realtor members of the
Central Florida MIFRMLS.
The geographical area of
the new MFRMLS essential-
ly expands the Central Flor-
ida real estate market, st-
retching from Punta Gorda


to Tampa, along the --4 cor-
ridor to Volusia County, east
of Orlando and almost to
Daytona Beach.
"This will eliminate the,
need for Venice area Realtors
to be members of more than
one MLS, unifying the local
market with greater exposure
for listings in Venice," said
Laura Kopple, president of
theVABR.
.-The overlapping-markets
problem has been resolved,


according to MFRMLS Pres-
ident JackVahey.
"Every time we get big-
ger, the cost per member is
decreased, and with more
members in the ranks, bet-
ter Realtor subscriber ser-
vice prices can be negotiat-
ed," said Vahey.
Consolidation of services"
strengthens Realtors' tech-
nology platforms and im-
proves data exchange, mak-
ing life easier for members,


according to Joe Hembree,
2007 president of the Sara-
sota Association of Realtors.
Marlene Merkle, execu-
tive vice president of the
VABR, said the merger of list-
ing systems is going to offer
many extra services and
products, including mapping
services, statistics, listing
accuracy checks and more.
"I'm so excited, as it is
going to save lots of money
for Realtors who want to put


listings in other MLS, all of
which will benefit sellers
and buyers in this area,"
said Merkle.
"The Venice board is
going live in March 2008,"
said Kopple. "There is a lot
of data to transfer as we join
to become one of the 13
boards within the expanded
MFRMLS." '

BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County Sheriff's
detectives arrested a North
Port couple in connection
with a recent armed rob-
bery in the Venice Wal-Mart
parking lot.
John Vargas, 40, and Jill
Melmed, 36, both of the
2300 block Morton Road,
were arrested. Vargas was
charged with robbery with a
firearm. Melmed was charg-
ed with robbery with a fire-
arm (accessory after the
fact) and possession of drug
paraphernalia.
There may be charges
against a third suspect,
according to Sheriff's Lt.


Chuck Lesaltato, when the
investigation is complete.
According to the sheriff's
report, a suspect came up to
a 60-year-
old woman

Rising tide of thefts hits Florida boaters


BY ROBERT NOLIN
SUN-SENTINEL STAFF

A stolen boat leaves no
trail upon the water. But
state officials can track their
numbers, and this year
reached a dismaying con-
clusion: Boats are disap-
pearing at an ever-increas-
ing rate.
Florida leads the nation
in vessel thefts. And, while
the Southeast coast region,.
with hundreds of miles of
waterways, leads the state,
the problem extends from
coast to coast.
"South Florida is certain-
ly the hot spot," said Lt..
John Humphreys of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
According to state fig-
ures, from the beginning of
the year through the end of
September, 76 boats were
stolen in Broward County, a
52 percent jump over the 50'
boats that went missing
during the same time peri-
od last year.
Though fewer boats were
stolen in Palm Beach Coun-


HOW TO FIGHT BOAT THEFT
* Dock your craft in a well-lighted area.
* Secure the vessel to the dock with a locked steel cable.
* Remove electronic equipment and fishing gear.
* Lock cabin doors and windows.
* Chain detachable motors to boat.
* Remove registration and title papers.
* Shut off fuel lines and remove battery or distributor cap.
* Lock trailer hitch if boat is on a trailer.

Commission


ty, the increase this.year was
more than double, from 32
in 2006 to 65 in 2007.
Stolen boat numbers are
pretty steady in Charlotte
County where 43 boats were
stolen last year and 30 have
been taken so far this year.
There will undoubtedly be
an increase in boat thefts in
Sarasota County, however,
where 42 boats were taken
in 2006. So far, in 2007, 43
boats have disappeared in
Sarasota.
Authorities blame lax
boat owners and, especially
in the Keys, an increase in
the use of stolen vessels for
smuggling drugs and would-


be immigrants, Humphreys
said.
Easy targets
People who wouldn't
think of leaving keys in an
unlocked car routinely leave
expensive boats unsecured.
"Members of the public
don't take the same mea-
sures to protect their boats
'as they do their vehicles,"
Humphreys said. "Crim-
inals recognize that and
think of boats as easy tar-
gets."
So far this year, more
than 1,200) vessels have
been stolen statewide, not
exactly a tidal wave of theft


in a state in which the nfim-
ber of registered boats to-
taled more, than 1 million
last year. But the figure does
represent a 30-percent spike.
Boat thefts accounted for
a $4.8 million loss so far this
year, according to Luis
Padilla, an analyst with the
National Insurance Crime
Bureau, a private company
that investigates and coor-
dinates information on in-
surance claims.
Working from 2004 fig-
ures, the latest available,
Padilla pegged the average
value of a boat in Florida at
$4,000. More than 1,200
thefts translates into nearly
$5 million in stolen proper-
ty.
"Boat theft is big busi-
ness and a growing trend in
Florida," said Capt. David
Bullard, also with the wild-
life agency.
About 20 percent of the
vessels are recovered,
Humphreys said, but be-
cause thieves typically strip
engines and equipment,
only about 5 percent are still
usable.

rT he real estate auction of auctions is be-

Key Club in Sarasota.
Conducted by Sotheby's International
Realty, the auction will feature some of the
most expensive and grandest homes in the
greater Sarasota area, including several on
Casey Key, in Nokomis, in Venice and along
Lemon Bay.
Two of the Casey Key homes have been
listed at prices in excess of $20 million. A
home on Osprey Point
Drive in Osprey was
listed for $8.9 million
and another in that
area for $2.39 million. A
Blackburn Point con- -
dominium offered at -
$1.275 million also is
located in Osprey.
A brand new home
in Lemon Bay Estates,
valued in excess of $4
million, is one of the PHOTO COURTESY

square-foot house features travertine floors
with inlay detailing in all the main rooms, 8-
foot doors, a 1-acre site with a preserve view
that includes a bald eagle nest. The house
has five bedrooms, four and one-half bath-
rooms, heated saltwater swimming pool
with an outdoor kitchen area on the back
deck. Like the floors in the house, the deck is
a masterpiece of craftsmanship. Doors are
imported mahogany. The over-sized four-car
garage is larger than most houses and fea-
tures commercial-grade hurricane-resistant
doors. A built-in generator can power the
home should die lights go out in a storm.
