Wal-Mart site plan appealed


Attorneys for Waterford Companies filed an
appeal last week contesting the Venice
Planning Commission's rejection of a Wal-Mart
site plan for the Renaissance Retail Center.


'BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Another Venice Planning
Commission decision is
being appealed.
Attorneys for Renais-
sance Retail Center devel-
opers filed an appeal last
week of the Venice Planning
Commission's denial of a
Wal-Mart site plan.


The site plan was consid-
ered on Nov. 6, after the
applicant submitted a re-
vised plan with new archi-
tectural renderings.
Commissioners felt the
site plan didn't go far
enough in addressing their
concerns about the lack of'
green space, too many
parking spaces, lack of
pedestrian interconnectivi-


ty, architectural style and
other issues.
In his letter notifying the
city of the appeal, Mark
Bamebey of Kirk Pinkerton
in Sarasota said the appli-
cant requested a continu-
ance of the hearing in order
to gather more comments
from the planning commis-
sion to revise the project.
The request was denied.
Overstepping
Bamebey will argue the
proposed retail center is a
permitted use in the com-
mercial-general zoning dis-
trict, a designation allowed


under the property's land-
use designation, and that
the commission overstep-
ped its authority by denying
the site plan.
"The project is not plan-
ned development, there are
no special exceptions being
requested and there are nO
variances being requested,"
Bamebey wrote.
"The only inquiry is
whether the project meets
the requirements of the
city's land development
code.
"This project does meet
all of the city's require-
ments," Barnebey wrote.


The planning commis-
sion already OK'd phase IA
of the four-phase project,
Which calls for a four-story
hotel and retail space on the
western 15 acres along
Knights Trail Road.
The original plan was to
build 20 acres of mixed-use
commercial retail and office
space, including a movie
theater complex and rest-
aurants, next to 50 acres
with homes and condos
with up to 731 units, creat-
ing a village.
A depressed housing
market led to a major
change in the original con-


cept plan approved by the
planning commission. In-
stead of building more than
700 residential units, the
developer submitted a site
plan depicting only 200
units and eliminating a
large central park to make
way for a retail center
anchored byWal-Mart.

City council will hear an
appeal on a different topic
on Dec. 11.

Salvation Army provides food, fellowship Blowin' smoke


The entire community
is invited to become
part of the Salvation
Army and sit down to
dinner Thursday.

BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

Volunteers for the Sal-
vation Army will be waking
up very early Thursday
because they are expecting
500 guests for dinner.
Capt. Chris Farrell has
extended an invitation to
anyone who wants to share
the afternoon with other
people. '
"You don't have, to be
hungry,, homeless or in
need," he said. "Just come
by for dinner."
There is no cost and all
are, welcome between 11
a.m. and 2 p.m. at 1051
Albee Farm Road, Venice.
The traditional Thanks-
giving Day meal is just one
of the holiday programs
funded by the Salvation
Army.
More than 160 turkeys
donated by the All Faiths
Food Bank were given away
Monday to local families. To
make sure their meal was
complete, a gift certificate to
Publix was also handed out.
Participants were asked
to sign up for the program
earlier this month. These
families are also eligible to
receive a turkey and gift
card for Christmas.
Debbie Johns, program
coordinator, said there are a
lot of eligible families from
the Venice area this year
because of the economy.

al approach to deter cigarette butt litter on
public beaches instead of creating designated
smoking areas.

Two of the more than 160 turkeys which were given away by the Salvation Army in Venice.The
turkeys were given to the Salvation Army by the All Faiths Food Bank.


Johns noticed that there
were more young people
with children applying for
food, citing losing a home
or a job as reasons that
brought them to the


Salvation Army for help
with their holiday meal.
'Times are tough'
John, an unemployed
truck driver from Venice


who didn't want to give his
last name, was grateful for
his turkey. He said his for-
mer job in New York paid
him $20 an hour. He was
surprised to find out that
similar work only pays $7 an
hour in this area.
"I have 11 years of experi-
ence and cannot support a
family on $200 a week," he
said. "That's why I am here."
When Denny's Restau-
rant closed, Misty Holland
was laid off. An experienced
waitress, Holland applied at
many local restaurants and
was told that they were
waiting until the snowbirds
returned before hiring staff.
"No one is hiring until
December," she said. "I still
have to eat until then."

An advisory board on
Monday recommended the
city of Venice take a passive
approach to implement a
countywide smoking ban
under consideration for
public beaches.
Administrators from the
Sarasota County Parks and
Recreation Department
came before the city of Ven-
ice Parks and Recreation
Advisory Board to ask how


the city would like to imple-
ment the plan, which cre-
ates designated smoking
areas.
The city could chose to
ban smoking altogether on
its public beaches, or desig-
nate certain beaches as
smoke-free.
Or, it could follow .the
county's preferred low-
impact plan create small
designated smoking areas.

Suspected thief dies

in police chase


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

A Venice man was killed
while fleeing police in Sara-
sota.
David A. Castillo, 18, died
when his car ran off the
road and hit a tree. Two
juvenile passengers from
Sarasota suffered injuries.
The female was taken to
Sarasota Memorial Hos-
pital. The man elected not
to be hospitalized. A Florida
Highway Patrol report
described his injuries as


minor.
According to the report,
Castillo was speeding west-
bound on 17th Street ap-
proaching Chimney Creek
Drive in Sarasota.
Police believe Castillo
and the two juveniles had
robbed a gas station/conve-
nience store at the comer of
17th Street and Honore
Avenue. Before they left the
store with four cases of beer
they had reportedly stolen,
they beat up the store clerk,

Be thankful that you don't live
in Bangladesh.
It's a'poor country, with
shanty-town slums crowded
with millions of hopeless peo-
ple clustered in low-lying
areas bordering a sea.
In other words, it's always
ripe for disaster.
Tropical Cyclone Sidr st-
ruck Bangladesh last week.
So far, authorities have count-
ed more than 3,000 dead. The
need for food and shelter is
great; the threat of disease
heightened. Bangladesh
needs help.
The United States has
offered $2.1 million for relief.
Byway of comparison, the

Impact fees rise in Sarasota County


School board signs 3 percent salary increase


BY NEIL HUGHES
STAFF WRITER

Your mere existence car-
ries a price tag.
It's the price you pay to
move somewhere new,
charged as an impact fee
when someone builds a
new home. Think of it as the
cost, to a local community,
of your existence.
But how much it costs
depends on where you live.
Your personal price tag is
represented through im-
pact fees, a tax charged to
new homes to offset the
impact of a person or family
moving to an area. They've
become the norm in Flor-
ida, where county and city
governments are legally
required to keep infrastruc-
ture adequate for growing
populations.
But the cost of your im-
pact can vary widely based
on what county you live in.
In Southwest Florida alone,
there's a difference of more
than $14,000 in fees be-
tween building a new home
in DeSoto County, when
compared with the more-
expensive Sarasota County,
which has higher infra-
structure and upkeep costs.
It's created a predica-
ment for local governments
across the state, as the
housing market struggles
and Florida's economy faces
hardships, all while infra-
structure costs for new
roads and utilities continue
to mount.
In Southwest Florida,
county governments are
going in much different
directions.
The Charlotte County
Commission lowered im-
pact fees for commercial


properties for one year in a
vote Tuesday. Residential
fees were reduced last
month.
That action follows
neighboring DeSoto Coun-
ty, which lowered its fees
earlier this year more
than half for nonresidential
properties, and 40 percent
for homes.
Officials in both counties
hope reducing the fees will
help to turn around the
stagnant building industry.

RESIDENTIAL
IMPACT FEES
Florida average (as of
July, including utilities):
$10,050.74
DeSoto County:
$5,306.56
Sarasota County:
$19,507.00
Charlotte County (newly
adopted rate): $7,423.00
Numbers courtesy
of James C. Nicholas.


But in Sarasota County,
the county commission
voted this year to phase in
impact fee increases over
two years, to offset costs
associated with growth.
Increases are ahead for
Hardee County residents as
well. The county will install
its first impact fees on Jan. 1,
County Administrator Lex
Albritton said.
A 'patently
unfair' system?
Florida Sen. Mike Ben-
nett, R-Bradenton, said he
will propose legislation in
the coming year that will
aim to curtail exorbitant
impact fee increases. It's


one of many ways the state
Legislature is looking to
reduce the taxing abilities of
local counties.
"Impact fees are a neces-
sity, they should be there,
but they should only cause
the impact that's really
caused by the growth, not
the other mistakes they
(individual counties) have
made in the past," Bennett
said.
There's also a problem,
he said, with how the taxes
are assessed only for new
homes. Bennett called the
current system "patently
unfair."
"The person who bought
your old home, they've got
17 kids and they moved
down here from West Vir-
ginia, they don't pay an im-
pact fee," Bennett said. "You
don't have the impact. They
have the impact."
Yet a person selling a
home and building a new
one pays the impact fee.
"There is no fair way to
tax," Bennett said. "The only
fair tax, there's only one, and
that's the one the other guy
pays."
The senator specifically
criticized Collier County,
which carries the highest
impact fees in the state,
averaging $33,000 for a new
,home.
"How can you ever have
affordable housing if, before
you ever put a shovel in the
ground, before you ever
turn that first piece of dirt,"
Bennett said, "you've got a
$40,000 cost?"
In Sarasota County, the
collective total impact fee
average nears $20,000.

The Sarasota County
School Board officially ac-
cepted a contract settle-
ment between the district
and the teachers and classi-
fied staff members for a 3
percent across-the-board
salary increase at their
meeting Nov. 20.
The contract affects the
salary schedule for the en-
tire school year and, when
finalized, will be paid ret-
roactively to the beginning
of the school year, July 1,
2007.
Sarasota Classified/Teach-
ers Association members
are expected to ratify the
vote Nov. 27 and 28 at the
work sites so the retroactive
pay can be included in pay-
checks before winter recess
starts, according to the
SC/TAWeb site.
"Bargaining went well,"
said Board Member Carol
Todd. "We have a great rela-
tionship between the
school board, staff and
SC/TA."
The new salary schedules
reflect a 3 percent increase
in addition to the already
granted longevity and edu-
cational experience incre-
ments.
The 3 percent is less than
last year's 5.25 percent
across-the-board salary in-
crease and reflects the dis-
trict taking a more conserv-
ative approach based on the
faltering state of the econo-
my with the school board
having seen budget cuts
from Tallahassee.
"We appreciate the work
of the union and all the hard
work of all of our staff and
know they deserve more


"Bargaining went
well. We have a
great relationship
between the school
board, staff and
SC/TA."

School Board
Member Carol Todd




than 3 percent, but this is all
we were able to give you,"
said Board Member Shirley
Brown.
Barry Dubin, executive
director of the SC/TA,
agreed the state budget cuts
affected the percentage of
the salary increase.
"Given the circum-
stances, it was a reasonable
agreement," he said.
With the 3 percent in-
crease, the average teacher
salary in Sarasota County
public schools is now
$53,637; without benefits,
according to Scott Fergu-
son, communications spe-
cialist for the school district.
He said benefits cost an
additional 35 percent of an
employee's salary.
Last year's average salary
in Sarasota County was
$52,348, significantly higher
than the Florida average of
$45,296.
The 3 percent increase
reflects only part of a
teacher's annual salary.
Other increases and incen-
tives SC/TA members re-
ceive include differentiated
pay for district critical
shortage areas, A+ rewards,


extra duty pay and incentive
pay for taking NeXT Gen-
eration courses.
Teachers can earn up to a
10 percent pay raise each
year.
As it was last year, the
salary increase is contingent
on continuation of the gen-
eral fund millage referen-
dum that comes up for
revote in 2010. Sarasota
County voters passed a ref-
erendum in 2002 to increase
the millage rate to enhance
school district salaries for
teachers, classified staff and
administration and boost
educational opportunities.
The referendum is voted
on every four years and was
renewed in 2006; it will be
voted on again in 2010.
If the measure does not
pass in 2010, all increases in
the salary schedule tied to
the referendum will be
removed and the school
board and SC/TA will go
back to the table, Ferguson
said.

How safe is the food on your table?


There is a battle waging continuously between
human beings and the environment. A promi-
nent battlefront is the kitchen, and several
agencies are poised to arm consumers with


weapons for the fight.

BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

Aug. 28, Metz Fresh of
Salinas, Calif., recalled fresh
spinach in bags bearing
three. tracking codes after
routine company testing
found salmonella in one of
its packing lines.
Salmonella is a common
foodborne pathogen that
can cause severe illness and
can be life-threatening to

Sarasota County Exten-
sion Agent Mary Jo Oswald
said that bacteria grows
rapidly in unrefrigerated

plies to 80 grams in one

young children, the elderly
and those with compro-
mised immune systems.
The recall was thorough
yet short-lived, and it ended
before many consumers
were aware of it. That's
because behind the scenes,
a well-choreographed recall
dance was under way that
had distributors discarding
the affected spinach long
before most of it headed to
consumers' dinner plates.
Listening to the news for
recalled products is one way
consumers can help battle
their personal food bacteria
wars. People can also do
their own research by going
online and searching, fr

istration at www.fda.gov.
While consumers can't
control the actions of food
producers, they can take


food spoilage starts and a
person's health can be
affected.
"Food poisoning affects
people differently," Oswald
said. "The same product
can cause a severe reaction
in one person, while others
may have a mild reaction."
Is it food poisoning?
The symptoms of food
poisoning include head-
ache, stomachache, slight
fever, chills, vomiting and
diarrhea, according to Os-

"A person can have one
or more symptoms, de-
pending on the concentra-
ti~p f 1bacteiia," she saqi,,.
'tI rcan act like the 24-hour
flu. If two or morespeople-
experience symptoms at
the same time and were
exposed at the same time, it
is probably food poison-
ing."
Prevention


There are myriad ways to
prevent the growth of bac-
teria on food. Oswald listed
four basic steps to food
safety: clean, separate, chill,
cook.
Clean: Properly wash
fruits and vegetables after
bringing them home from
the store under a cool, mod-
erate flow of running water.
"This helps keep vegeta-
bles crisp. Warm water can
cause wilting," Oswald said.
Also, hands should be
washed before handling
food and throughout the
preparation process to av-
oid cross-contamination.
Separate: Avoid cross-
contamination by keeping
meats, fruits and vegetables
separate. Do not use the
same cutting board or knife
for meats and produce, and
wash the surface before and
after use.
Wooden cutting boards
are discouraged for meats
because juices can get into
the wood grain. If wooden
board is used for cutting up
fruits and vegetables, the
board should be disinfected
with 1/4 cup unscented
bleach in 1 gallon of water.
Chill: Food should be
refrigerated immediately
after bringing home from
the store. Oswald said foods
must be refrigerated at 40
degrees or below or heated
to 140 degrees or above.
"The danger zone is
between 40 degrees and 140
degrees," she said.
If cooked food is not
going to be eaten right
away, it should be refriger-
ated.
Cook: Meats should be
cooked to their proper tem-
perature. Cooking kills bac-
teria, but if food is cooked
and left out at room tem-
perature, bacteria can grow
again, especially if a sauce is
3 involved, due to its density.
S.ppe.s include casseroles,
potato and tuna salads,
because bacteria can grow
rapidly at room tempera-
ture.
Other safeguards
There are many safe-
guards, such as defrosting


frozen meat and poultry in
the refrigerator and not in
the kitchen sink or on the
counter, because the out-
side defrosts first and is
more susceptible to bacte-
ria growth. Oswald said it is
OK to defrost meat in the
microwave, but only if you
continue to cook it thor-
oughly.
Mary King, extension
services program specialist,
said people should scrub
textured fruits with a scrub
brush before cutting.
"The texture of cantal-
oupe shells hold dirt and
bacteria that can get onto
the fruit when it is cut," she
said.
The same is true of mold
at the tip of an avocado.
There could be more mold
spores that are not seen and
the mold can spread inside
the shell when the meat is
cut into.
When buying fruit cups,
it is recommended that
people choose the ones that
separate different fruits. If
different fruits are together,
the acidity from one may
affect the others.
In general, spinach and
lettuce are safe to use from
the bag, but watch for expi-
ration dates on bags.
"Bags must be sold by a
certain date and the food is
edible three days after the
sell-by date," Oswald said.


"Milk is good for five days
after the sell-by date as long
as it is refrigerated proper-
ly"
Oswald listed things to
look for when shopping to
help ensure food safety.
"If a pallet of 20 food
, items is sitting out before
being placed in,, a store
refrigerator, check to see
how long it has been sitting
there," she said.
'At fruit stands, if items
sit out in the hot Florida
temperature, the nutrition-
al value may be affected,
but the item can still be safe.

perature, 10 grams of bacteria multiplies to 80 grams, and to 680 i
grams in two hours, the time when food spoilage starts and a
person's health can be affected.


"Uncut tomatoes and

refrigeration. Berries may
begin to mold, and if one or

Storage
According to Bernard, if
you put ground meat or j
poultry in the refrigerators
but you can't cook it in two
days, freeze it. Poultry is
best frozen in pieces, she?
said. j

Mary Jo Oswald, Sara-
sota County extension
agent, and Kathy Bernard,
acting manager of the
USDA Meat and Poultry
Hotline, would like to dis-
pel a myth about food safe-
ty.
Myth: Potato salad spoils
quickly because of the
mayonnaise used in
preparing it.
Truth: Potato salad spoils
quickly, but not for just one
reason.
Oswald said spoilage of
the salad is more likely due
to the density of potatoes
and eggs.
Mayonnaise has a vine-
gar base and may help pre-
vent bacteria growth.
"A cooked potato that
sits out overnight can get
salmonella," she said.

Florida's gopher tortoises get better protection


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Florida's gopher tortoise
has been labeled a "threat-
ened" species.
The designation recently
by the State Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission
means that no one can pur-
sue, hunt, take, sell or trans-
port a gopher tortoise or its
eggs. Its burrows can no
longer be destroyed without


a commission permit.
Sarasota County's govern-
ment and area environmen-
tal organizations, frequent
complainers to the state for
years about the absence of
protection for the species,
had predicted the designa-
tion earlier this year.
Last March, the resource
protection department sub-
mitted a draft ordinance to
the board of county com-
missioners that consolidat-


ed separate management
programs to protect gopher
tortoises, bald eagles, mana-
tees, sea turtles and scrub
jays.
State Rep. Keith Fitzgerald,
D-Sarasota, simultaneously
began to push for legislation
that would parallel the coun-
ty plan. He hopes it will be
passed in the 2008 state leg-
islative session.
The proposed county or-
dinance would preserve up-


land species and habitats.
The plan was devised in co-
operation with the Sara-
sota/Manatee Sierra Club
following a series of environ-
mental workshops in January
and February. Stakeholders,
county staffers and represen-
tatives of the state participat-
ed.
According to Fitzgerald,
about 10,000 acres of land
in northern Florida were
purchased by the state for


relocated gopher tortoises.
The money came from "in-
cidental take" permits issued
by the Fish & Wildlife Cofn-
servation Commission. Until
July 30, they were required by
the commission of develop-
ers and local governments to
stop them from killing the
tortoises with bulldozers lev-
eling the land.
The land purchases cost
$15 million. More than $50
million was collected in per-


mit fees.
Gayle Reynolds of the area
Sierra Club said that her orga-
nization and other environ-
mentalist groups had since
1995 sought a tougher coun-
ty code to protect wildlife.
More than 94,000 tortois-
es were buried alive in the
17-year history of incidental
take permit sales, according
to state estimates. But envi-
ronmentalists suggest that
the number is 10 times that.


Foundation a 'green'

business partner


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY

Sarasota County's Green.
Business Partnership has
awarded its newest certifica-
tion to the largest communi-
ty foundation in Florida.
With assets of $260 mil-
lion, Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice has
provided $72 million in gra-
nts in the areas of arts and
culture, health and human
services, education, civic aff-
airs and the environment
"We wanted to walk the
walk," said Teri Hansen, pres-
ident and CEO of the founda-
tion. "The foundation encou-
rages nonprofit organiza-
tions to build green, and we
support environmental con-
servation and education th-
rough our grants.
"We realized that if we are
going to counsel our non-
profit partners to be more
sustainable, we should look
at our own business and en-
sure that we are doing every-
thing we can to reduce our
impact on the environment."
According to Sarasota
County Recycling Coordin-
ator Tom Franklin, the foun-
dation's efforts are already
paying'offiq lo :, j, ,1
z'During their application:
process, they determined
they could purchase more
than 72,000 kilowatts of green
energy through Florida Po-
wer and Light's Sunshine En-
ergy for Businesses pro-


gram," said Franklin. "It was a
very proactive move and just
a part of what the foundation
is doing in a number of
areas."
Hansen has appointed a
"green team" to conduct an
environmental audit of their
office, research best practices
and make recommendations
to the rest of the staff.
"Efforts like the Green
Business Partnership raise
awareness and offer a practi-
cal roadmap that businesses
can follow to make real
changes," Hansen said.
The Green Business Part-

Mississippi River nutrients linked to Florida red tides


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Nutrients causing the red
tides that have long plagued
Florida's west coast may
originate in the Mississippi
River, according to a paper
released Wednesday by the
National Oceanic and At-
mospheric Administration.
The paper stated those
nutrients "may stimulate
harmful algal blooms to
grow on the continental
shelf off the west coast of
Florida."
According to the paper,
algal blooms form on the
Florida coast due to weath-
er and gulf currents. The
algae grow offshore, forti-
fied by nutrients apparently
originating from the Miss-
.issippi River, driven east-
ward by certain seasonal
wind patterns.
"We found that the con-
centrations of nutrients


needed to start the Florida
red tides is much lower than
-previously suspected," said
Richard Stumpf, Ph.D., ad-
ministration oceanograph-
er and lead author of the
paper. "The hypothesis
means that offshore areas
should be examined for both
small increases in nutrients
and modest concentrations
of the algae at the start of
the bloom season."
According to the paper,
waters discharging into the
Gulf of Mexico from the
Mississippi mainly travel
westward most of the year.
However, prevailing winds
from early summer tend to
carry the river's outflow
eastward instead, bringing
nutrients particularly
nitrogen toward Florida's
west coast.
Those nutrients settle
into deeper water and are
"taken up" by the algae. The
blooms of red tide also


known as Karenia brevis -
begin on the continental
shelf, then are concentrated
and brought on shore by
late summer and fall wind
patterns.
Ben Sherman, director of
NOAA's ocean services com-
munication office, said the
study may set the tone for
future predictions and mon-
itoring of red tide blooms -
including possible alter-
ations in their intensity bet-
ween years and regions.
Sherman said the study the-
orizes that even small in-
creases in nitrogen could
account for offshore bloom
growth.
"Understanding initia-
tion of red tide should lead
to improved monitoring,
modeling and research stra-
tegies for these blooms,"
Sherman said.
The administration has
already begun testing the
paper's hypothesis with sci-


entists at Mote Marine Lab-
oratory in Sarasota, using
underwater vehicles carrying
instruments called "Breve-
Busters." The vehicles check

for Karenia brevis blooms
further off the coast in deeper
Gulf of Mexico waters.
Richard Pierce, senior
scientist and director of the
center for ecotoxicology at


Mote, applauded the pa-
per's findings as "an excel-
lent synthesis of results, in-
terpreting what it all means
in terms of the biology,
chemistry and physics of
red tide bloom dynamics."
He said, however, that it still
is not a definitive answer of
what causes the phenome-
non and nitrogen is not
the only nutrient in play.
"Phosphorus and carbon
and other nutrients are
picked up as well," Pierce
said. "'As these marine algae
decompose, the nitrogen is
recycled and made avail-
able for red tide blooms.
Also, as the organisms sink
to the bottom and decom-
pose, then you have a high-
er concentration of nitro-
gen and phosphorus right
there on the bottom. Very
recent research has shown
that the red tide organism
can go onto the sediment
and pick up nutrients there,


and then go back up into
the water column."
Pierce said the Mississ-
ippi River is not the only
source of nutrients coming
to the Gulf Coast.
"Every tributary, every
estuary contributes nutri-
ents," Pierce said. '"And we
have to continue to monitor
the contribution from them
as well as atmospheric de-
position of nutrients."
Pierce pointed to the
BreveBusters as important
tools delivering much-need-
ed data for red tide research.
"We have to have contin-
uous, real-time information
on where red tide blooms
are and what the physical
and chemical conditions are
surrounding these blooms if
we're going to be able to test
the accuracy of this hypoth-
esis," Pierce said.

USF team works toward red tide forecast


BY GABRIELLA SOUZA
FORT MYERS NEWS-
PRESS

It causes respiratory pro-
blems, drives tourists from
beaches and kills birds, fish
and ocean-living mammals:
There's no denying red tide
is a problem.
But researchers at the
University of South Florida
and the Florida Fish, and
Wildlife Commission believe
that by studying red tide they
can alleviate it by gaining a
better understanding of the
natural phenomena and be-
come better able to predict


when and where it could
pop up next.
USF and the commis-
sion's Fish and Wildlife Re-
search Institute announced
Nov. 13 that they will join
forces to form the Center for
Prediction of Red Tides at
USF's College of Marine Sci-
ence in St. Petersburg.
By studying water circula-
tion and red tide cell counts
at the center, researchers will
be able to provide a red tide
forecast. They will also use
satellite imagery to identify
where red tide is located.
"We're basically trying to
use this to say, 'OK, this is


where it's going to be in three
days,' said Cynthia Heil,
senior research scientist at
the Florida Fish andWildlife
Research Institute.
The center is funded by a
five-year, $1.25 million con-
tract from the Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute,
along with a matching con-
tribution from the universi-
ty of $400,000 for computer
equipment.
Researchers from USF
and Fish and Wildlife al-
ready meet once or twice a
week to collaborate, so it
will not be a hard transition,
Weisberg said. The center


will simply formalize the
work that has already been
going on and speed up the
process, he said.
"Hopefully, this formality
will help us to achieve these
goals a little faster," Weis-
berg said.
Red tide is caused when
the organism Karenia brevis
goes through a population
explosion.
The microscopic organ-
ism produces a toxin that,
once its concentrations reach
higher levels, causes people
to experience respiratory
problems and causes dead
fish to wash up on beaches.


Two groups of factors
contribute to this popula-
tion explosion, said Robert
Weisberg, distinguished pro-
fessor of physical ocean-
ography at USE
One group is physical
factors, such as the move-
ment of the ocean and its
response to temperature
change. The other group is
the biological factors, such
as the organisms living
within the ocean's depths.
Studying both those
groups together will be vital
to the center's understand-
ing of red tide, Weisberg
said.


"It needs to be coupled,"
he said.
Heil said funding for the
project came at the perfect
time in the research process,
when more money was
needed to keep the work by
both groups going. And
Weisberg said once the
research process starts, the
center will look to expand,
obtaining grants and bring-
ing in more researchers.
'As time goes on, we'll
probably be adding more
.students and getting more
staff," he said.

ble. ,
- County staff members
were looking for direction
on how the city would like
to proceed.
What they got was a cool
reception to the smoking
ban and its designated
smoking areas.
Instead, the board came
up with its own recommen-
1dation: Place signs that en-
"courage litter-free beaches
a at each entrance attached to
S"skinny" cigarette butt re-
Sceptacles.
Rob LaDue, Sarasota
-County parks and recre-
'ation supervisor, said the
-county had experimented
;with small, removable re-
ceptacles but many had
-been stolen.
New receptacles, he said,
would have to be staked in,


but movable in case nesting
birds or turtles turn up.
Deterring cigarette litter
with educational signs only,
said LaDue, was an option
they hadn't considered since
county commissioners wefe
focusing on more strenuous
regulatory measures.
It's all about the "prolifer-
ation of cigarette butts on
beaches and trying to find a
way to deal with that,"
LaDue said.
"It's a little disconcerting
to have this litter on the
beach with tourists coming
down. We've tried to clean
the beaches, but you can't
pick up small things like cig-
arette butts."
Cooperative approach
Instead of smoking areas,
the Venice board proposed
a beefed-up educational
campaign based on friendly
signs.
They want to take the
focus off health and en-
forcement issues and on to
what they consider the real


issue litter. .
"Let's have signs that let
them know it's about litter,
not (about) their right to
smoke," said Advisory
Board Member Dawn Stod-
dart, who also sits on the
county's advisory parks and
recreation board.
'As it stands right now
there are no receptacles.
Let's install receptacles and
give it a shot at one area for
three or four months and
see how it goes," she said.
BoardVice Chair Lamont
Andrews, who chaired the
meeting, agreed with that


approach partly out of frus-
tration with the county's
previous lack of action.
"Three years ago we
voted on this to put up
signs, receptacles and pro-
vide education," he said.
"We never saw the money."
He supports a more gen-
tle approach with signs that
read "leave only your foot-
prints" attached to recepta-
cles.
"We don't need to be
harsh with the signs,"
Andrews said. "Let's try to
seek cooperation from the
public."


"If we can be the test area
(for Sarasota County), fine,"
said Board Member Vema
Silk.
"You've got to walk be-
fore you run," said Board
Member John Osborne.
"Start slow. Don't over-
whelm (people with) 'Oh,
you can't do this.' "
"People will police them-
selves a lot better if you go
this way."
Next steps
The city of Sarasota
decided recently to abide by
whatever ordinance the


board of county commis-
sioners ultimately adopts.
The county hopes to
advertise a draft ordinance
by Nov. 28 and hold a public
hearing on Dec. 11.
The Venice Parks and
Recreation Advisory Board
recommendation goes next
to city council for its consid-
eration.
The proposed regulation
would affect only public
beach parks, and would not
extend to private single-
family beachfront homes.

OUR VIEW


Relieving pangs of hunger


... and conscience


Most of us have never known a
day of true hunger.
Hunger to most of us simply
means it's been four hours
since we've last eaten. When we exclaim
that we're "starving," it means only that
our hunger pangs are a little more in-
tense.
According to the Oxford American
Dictionary, "starve" means to cause to
die of hunger or suffer from lack of food.
To most of us, that kind of starving
applies to children in war-torn or
drought-stricken areas in Africa, for
example.
This year, in this economy, it threat-
ens to occur much closer to home.
The only suffering most of us have
experienced is listening to our stomachs
growl on the way to a restaurant where


we will eat our fill and then moan about
how we ate too much and feel stuffed.
That is far from what the working
poor are experiencing.
The hunger pangs we may feel aren't
accompanied by nervous stomachs
and heartaches because we don't know
where our next meal is coming from or
how we will provide for our families.
Nor do they trigger feelings of humilia-
tion as we contemplate being forced to
ask for help just to put food on the
table.
Thursday most of us will gather with
family and friends and share a Thanks-
giving feast with all the trimmings.
For the working poor those who
have lost their jobs or who have been
forced to take lower-paying jobs this
Thanksgiving won't be so festive.


They didn't shop for a turkey and all
the trimmings because they didn't have
the money. Instead, they had to ask
someone else to supply the groceries for
their Thanksgiving meal.
Because of agencies such as the South
County Food Pantry, All Faiths Food
Bank, the Salvation Army and a variety
of churches, the working poor will have
turkeys on their Thanksgiving tables this
year.
But what about the rest of 2007 and all
of 2008?
It's easy to remember the less fortu-
nate during the holiday season. It's also
easy to forget their needs are ongoing.
Perhaps we can keep their needs fore-
most in our minds by changing our
shopping habits a bit. *
As we fill our grocery shopping carts


with food staples for our families
throughout the year, we can buy an extra
can or two of soup, a box of spaghetti or
macaroni and cheese, and donate them
to the agency of our choice that feeds
the hungry.
Or we can write a check to those
agencies to purchase food. We can fill a
shopping bag with groceries on a weekly
basis and deliver it to someone in our
neighborhood who is in need of a help-
ing hand this year.
If it takes a village to raise a child, it
will take every member of our commu-
nities to feed our hungry.
As gas prices gobble up food and
clothing budgets and taxes and insur-
ance increase, let's remember there are
those in far more need than we are.
Let's give to them generously.


More parking?


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


For several years as the
population of the area has
grown we have found that
parking downtown is inade-
quate.
There have been crack-
,ovwns ee employees -using-
'the customer parking, and
limiting people to two hours
in a spot (which in some
cases limits the time visitors
stay downtown).
These have helped but
have not solved the prob-
lem. The city bought the lot
next to Althea's and fixed
that up, but by and large
there have been no im-
provements to downtown
parking in a long time.
The best chance to have
gotten money was the 1-
cent sales surtax we just
voted on, but the city com-
mittee and council passed
on putting that on the list.
Yet it should be a high prior-
ity.
I almost wonder if it
could be substituted for one.
of the other projects that
may be a lower priority, like
moving the reverse-osmosis
plant or improving the gun
range and training facility.
Anyway, there has been
speculation on where best
to put a garage. Two or three
sites are most often talked
about.
The site the city sold to
the Venice Little Theatre
behind the old ABC Lounge
would be great. During the
day it would be great for
parking for shopping and at
night for plays, etc. That
would also allow it to be
quite well hidden.
Another suggestion has
been the lot between the
post office and Bank Amer-
ica. One idea was to put
some shops with living
quarters above them on
West Venice Avenue to hide
the garage. That would be
well located.
The other idea was one
brought up a few years ago,
in which First Baptist
Church would allow the city
to build a garage on its park-
ing lot. That would be a
good dual-use facility. I
have been told the church
was interested but the city
was not at the time.
The only big conflict
would be when there were
major weekend events
downtown when the church
would also need the park-
ing, but even then it would
be a great help. A similar


idea has been mentioned
for the Epiphany Cathedral
lot but that was a less-wel-
come option.
In any case, we hope that
after council works on the
airport, Tra Ponti, the comp
plan and anything else
urgent, it would make this
an important priority.
*******

By's Crack: I tried a
new drink for a Thanks-
giving toast. It was
Chianti and prune juice.
It makes an offer you
can't refuse.


Congrats to all of the can-
didates who ran for office,
not only for a very good
campaign but for collecting
all the political signs in
record time. The people
supporting the 1-cent tax
didn't do as well.

To put the water shortage
in perspective, rainfall for
2006 was the worst since
2000: 42 inches last year
compared to a norm of 52
inches. That couples with
rainfall so far in 2007 of 37
inches. Two bad years in a
row add up to more restric-
tions.
Harry Moyer wrote me a
letter that our governments
were missing the best
source of water of all, a de-
salination plant. He wrote
that Swiftmud should stop
praying for rain and use the
resource that is right in our
back yard.
I know there have been
some looks at this and
much analysis, even to the
point of putting something
like that at the airport. I
think the regional authority
. has looked at the costs and
opted to build a huge reser-
voir. It still certainly should
be considered.

Very interesting things
will be happening at Sum-
merville, which is the adult
facility across from Epiph-
any on Tampa Avenue.
On Wednesday, Nov. 28,
there is going to be a plein
air paint out around this
historic building from 9
a.m. to 4:30 p.m. There will
be artists from all over. At
5:30 p.m. there will be a
cocktail party; and an-
nouncement of the winners
is at 6:30 p.m. Art will be
available for sale with part
of the proceeds going to the
Alzheimer's Association.

clubs, fresh air and a beauti-
ful partner, and you can
keep the clubs and the fresh

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Venetians never say no to helping


Editor:
You asked us Venetians to tell you what we love most
about Venice. For me, the answer is easy: It is the people
who make up our community.
As the chair of my daughter's inaugural preschool
fundraiser, I asked the help of literally hundreds of our
community members. Not once was I turned down.
Everything I requested from sponsorships, to donations
of items, time, energy and support was granted.
It didn't seem to matter if the person or business had a tie
to the preschool. It was just a matter of, "What do you
need?"
A special thank-you to all the family, friends and com-
munity members (including John Ryan, president and CEO
of the Venice Area Chamber of Commerce and NealVan de
Ree, auctioneer) who made our Grace Preschool Auction
Fundraiser such a success.
It truly warmed my heart to see everyone in the room
that night excited to be there and support our children. I'm
proud to say we exceeded our fundraising goals, which is a
great achievement the first time out.
That is why I love living in Venice and being a part of
such a warm and supportive community.

Phosphate deal
is deficient

Editor:
Another shining example
of how Mosaic's settlement
with the counties is defi-
cient is with our current
water shortage.
I believe businesses like
phosphate mining and agri-
culture should have water
restrictions to abide by just
like citizens.
There is no mention of
water usage in the current
settlement. With three mine
permits right now on the
table to potentially run
simultaneously, there need
to be water sanctions. That's
another reason the areaw-
ide cumulative impact
study needs to occur.
Even 15 years is too long


for a contract of this nature.
I'll bet the state of Florida
wished it never granted
Mosaic the permit to use 10
million gallons of water a
day for mining. Had it a
crystal ball into the future, it
would have seen our
drought conditions, which
are probably going to occur
for several more years.

Bring back
the guillotine
Editor:
Let's start with death row.
How many people have
been there for years? Why
call it death row; it's just
another prison wing.
How many really get put


to death? Many sentenced
to life are released in 20
years, or to 20 and it's five.
Life should be life; appar-
ently not in our judicial sys-
tem.
What's more bothersome
is, while these low-life de-
generates are in the system,
they're fed, housed, receive
medical treatment, even
receive a college education,
if they choose, on our dime.
Others "outside" have to
work hard, some living from
paycheck to paycheck.
Some college students have
to work several jobs to pay
back student loans.
Maybe if prisoners on
death row were actually put
to death, millions of dollars
in government funds would
free up to do constructive
things, like helping home-
less people who have fallen
on hard times get back on
their feet.
The perfect solution: the
guillotine. It's not a joke, it's
perfect. Death row has to be
cleared out.
Lethal injection is cruel
and unusual punishment?
These are murders, rapists,
kidnappers, etc. and we're
supposed to care about the
method of putting them to
death?
The guillotine certainly
would clear up the "cruel
and unusual" issue. No
chance it won't be quick and
painless.
These degenerates might
give it a second thought
before their crime, if they
knew they really would be
executed.

A whale of a lie
Editor:
Well, the Japanese are at
it again, killing whales. Of
course, they "say" it is for
"scientific" purposes but
the numbers they propose
to kill put the lie to that
statement.
Ever since the hunting
ban was instituted, the
Japanese have been trying
to get around that ban. So
they have hit on the "lie"
that they seek scientific
knowledge about whales.
They know, as we all do, that
whales are very intelligent,
family-oriented creatures.
Killing them for any reason
is wrong.
The Japanese will kill 935
Antarctic minke whales, 50
humpback whales and 50
fin whales all unneces-
sary deaths. The meat from
the "scientific" catch will be
sold commercially the
real reason for the killings.
The Japanese say whal-
ing is a Japanese tradition.
There are many other tradi-
tions that have been given
up by civilized people.
I for one will never by a
Japanese car or knowingly
buy any other Japanese
product. If more of us who
care about whales did this,
we could put a stop to their
hunger for whale meat.

Educating other peoples' kids


One of the perennial
arguments between haves
and have nots is, why
should folks who don't
have kids pay for educat-
ing the kids of folks who
do?
Numerous reasons why
or why not have been raised
over the years. They gener-
ally center on the economic
benefits of an educated
workforce versus the cost of
an ignorant one. Others
argue that the cost of incar-
ceration and crime would
replace the cost of educa-
tion.
In earlier times, the rea-
sons why tended to focus on
?theology and politics.
Perhaps the most funda-
mental reason early Euro-
?pean settlers gave for edu-
cating their children was so
they could read the Bible
,and other religious texts.
SThis was a new thing in their
day and was part of the reli-
Igious revolution in Europe
that drove many of the set-
tlers to the NewWorld in the
first place.
As the idea of self-rule
,and democracy took hold
Iin colonial America, a
,political reason was added
to the religious one. At its
,'heart, democracy seeks to
replace a single sovereign
.ruler with thousands of
i them. And just as an igno-
r,


rant king would be disas-
trous for a kingdom, so too
would ignorant citizens
doom a democracy.
Nowadays, these argu-
ments miss an obvious
point: America is no longer
a new country with no his-
tory. As we begin the 21st
century, yve can look back
at 500 years of continuous
history and speak mean-
ingfully of customs and
traditions.
From this vantage point,
it is obvious that one our
oldest traditions and long-
est-living customs is public
education. Indeed, we can
* speak of public education in
America in the same way
that we speak of making
wine in France or drinking
tea in England. It's part of
who we are and what we do
as a people.
Clearly, the primary ben-
eficiaries of public educa-
tion are and always have
been poor and working-
class children. And it is
equally clear that this has
been a bone of contention
among those who paid the
taxes that provided that
education.
So why did they do it?
Why did taxpayers through-
out American history pay
for public education and
thus make it part of the fab-
ric of our lives?
The answer is simple: It
made a difference to
them.
It made a difference that
they lived in a community
of people who could read
the Bible, read the newspa-
pers and discuss issues of
religion, politics, art or sci-
ence. It made, difference
that they had leaders who
knew their history and who
could communicate with
their peers throughout
America and the world.


And it made a difference
that they had workers who
could read and understand
instructions --workers who
could learn new methods
and new jobs and thus help
create new industries and
economies.
In the end, it was those
hard-bitten taxpayers who
invented and then perpetu-
ated the tradition of public
education in America. And
it is we here now who are
the primary beneficiaries of
their belief that it was worth
the cost.
So the answer to the
question why educate other
peoples children is simply
this: It's what we do in
America. It's one of the ways
we keep faith with those
who came before and who
bequeathed our way of life
to us.
Customs and traditions
may or may not be rational.
Some old ones may fall by
the wayside as time goes by
and some new may rise up
out of nowhere. But old or
new, they are the cement
that holds a nation together
through good times and
bad.
As such things go, a tradi-
tion of public education is
pretty impressive. One
could argue that it beats
making wine or drinking
tea.
It's a legacy that lasts and
that improves the genera-
tions. It deserves respect
and fidelity. There are few
things that would better
grace our future reputations
than to educate other peo-
ples' kids.

known expert on school con-
currency and a frequent
commentator on that and
other topics related to public
schools.

Unleash code enforcement


Reservations. I'm commenting about the "Code shoul-
der" comments. Code enforcement in the city ofVenice has
done a great job. I know of several projects derelict prop-
erties that have been torn down while they've been
active. I was at the city council meeting when that particu-
lar party was talking about a property needing to be
cleaned up, and it's my understanding that that property is
owned by a prominent Venice developer. Apparently code
enforcement are the Indians and the administration are
chiefs, and the chiefs are not wanting the developers to
have to follow the same rules as everybody else. No, code
enforcement should not be criticized. I believe code
enforcement would do more if they could, but they're being
stopped by .people that are politically sensitive in the
administration of the city. I hope that's going to change with
the new city council members coming in and the new
mayor.


Citizens? Are ads not
fact-checked? Citizens for
Quality Government pub-
lished a list of 110 names
purporting to be citizens of
Venice supporting the exist-
ing city council. Well, upon
checking, barely half of
them are registered to vote
in the city of Venice and
some don't even live in the
city of Venice at all for
instance, Tramm Hudson.
Has he moved and I don't
know about it? You really
should be more careful..
EDITOR'S NOTE: An average
paper can have 100 or more


ads in it. Fact checking them
would be impossible.
Enough. Congratulations
to Ed Martin, Sue Lang and
Ernie Zavodnyik on their
sweeping victory over the
entrenched bureaucracy,
proving again that "right
trumps might." It was re-
freshing to see that despite
the all out efforts of the
moneyed interests, the de-
velopers and the CQG to
keep their pro-growth
crowd in office, the citizens
of Venice rose up in union to
take back their city. At the
county level too, the citi-


zens, fed up with the go-go,
rampant-growth politicians,
exercised their rights and
wishes at the ballot booth by
voting in the super-majority
amendment. More impor-
tant, they sent a clear mes-
sage that enough is enough
with the runaway growth that
has infected our way of life.
Now, let's support our newly
elected city of Venice officials
so that our beloved city can
continue to prosper, but in a
more sensible and well-
thought-out manner. The cit-
izens deserve no less.
Switched, too. From
your front-page article (I'm
quoting Mr. Miller and com-
pany) taking Republican
funds from the Sarasota
Republican Party, (1) I think
it may be illegal; and (2) a
life-long Republican has
just become a Democrat.
How long? Why are we
holding up the completion of
Route 41 for a stupid medal-
lion in the road? That seems
to me the least of our worries.
Get the road finished and
open so that we can travel.
I'm an elderly lady, and I fear I
won't live to see the comple-
tion of Route 41.

Hub owner sues county; buys liquor license


Chris Brown wants to open his new business
in time for the winter tourist season. County
officials who initially approved the project now


say it lacks enough park

BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS

Siesta Village property
owner Chris Brown has sued
Sarasota County for an occ-
upancy certificate to open his
new bar and restaurant in
time for the winter tourist
season and purchased a
liquor license in the event
an unresolved seating squ-
abble related to parking
drags on.
On Tuesday, Brown told


ing.

the Pelican Press that The
Hub will "definitely be
open" at 5148 Ocean Blvd.,
despite contradictory deci-
sions by county building
and zoning officials who
approved remodeling per-
mits and initially OK'd his
parking plan.
"I bought a 4-COP lic-
ense so opening is not a fac-
tor now," he said. "It's the
cost of doing business. Now
I can have two to 2,000 seats
and serving food is not rele-


vant. We've had a final ins-
pection and received a cer-
tification of completion.
Make no mistake, we will be
open."
Florida issues a variety of
liquor licenses. A typical bar
and restaurant operation
that derives more than 50
percent of its revenue from
food sales only requires an
SRX (special restaurant) lic-
ense. Brown owned one
when he filed for permits to
open The Hub.
When a dispute with the
county erupted over his
parking plan, he took the
additional precaution of pur-
chasing a 4-COP (consump-
tion on premises) quota
license, which has ,no food


or seating requirements.
They currently cost about
$330,000 each.
"We filed a suit against
the county last week to for-
ce the issuance of an occu-
pancy certificate," said Sara-
sota attorney Morgan Bent-
ley, who is representing
Brown. "The county may
agree it can't hold off issuing
one or fight this to the death.
We want this resolved as
soon as possible."

Tow truck wars?
The suit documents cou-
nty decisions to issue build-
ing permits and approve an
"alternative parking plan"
that includes 30 off-site and
deficient spaces. It includes


evidence that Brown paid
the county $24.13 for each
off-site space and $40.36 for
each deficient space.
The suit quotes Zoning
Director Tina Crawford as
stating on Aug. 15: "The Hub
is a restaurant that submitted
renovation plans. It used the
county ordinance that al-
lows business owners in the
village area to pay to 'share'
in the county parking lot."
According to the suit,
County Administrator Jim
Ley "disavowed" Crawford's
parking determination after
a Sept. 10 meeting about
Siesta Village parking with
Commission Chair Nora
Patterson and Siesta Key
Association President Lour-


des Ramirez.
On Oct. 23, the county
commission ordered an in-
house village parking study
to determine which busi-
ness owners provide en-
ough spaces, who has valid
shared-parking agreements
and why building permits
are issued for projects that
don't provide adequate
parking.
"A public parking lot was
built in 1998 with the under-
standing it would make up
for deficiencies previously
allowed by the county," Pat-
terson said. "Now our codes
allow for more development
without sufficient parking.
We will end up with towtruck
wars is this is not addressed."


North Port fast-tracking proposed urgent-care clinic


BY ANNE
KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER


On the heels of one med-
ical clinic comes a proposal
for another, not far from the
first.
Dr. Steve Miley, manag-
ing director of Axcess Cen-
ters of Sarasota, which pro-
vides diagnostic services at
centers in Southwest Flor-
ida, is behind the proposed
plan for a 50,000-square-


foot, .24-hour urgent-care
center at Price and Toledo
Blade boulevards.
"We have buildings in
Bradenton and Sarasota,
and North Port felt like the
next logical step," Miley
said. "We're going to build a
clinic with an urgent-care
center, full diagnostic cen-
ter, pediatricians and ortho-
pedics."
In association with the
Frank Menke Organization,
Miley is undertaking the


project jointly with Health
Management Associates,
which operates hospitals in
Venice, Port Charlotte and
Punta Gorda. HMA applied
for and was preliminarily
granted a certificate of need
for a hospital in North Port,
although the issuance was
reversed on appeal.
North Port Regional Med-
ical Center, a 75,000-square-
foot, three-storybuilding, has
been approved for the Bob-
catVillage Center, off Toledo


Blade Boulevard. The com-
prehensive medical office
will eventually have 24-
hour ambulatory care.
Long-term plans exist to
make it a free-standing em-
ergency room with ambul-
ance access, lab services and
a comprehensive imaging
center. City planners have
fast-tracked the project for a
2008 opening.
Miley said there is defi-
nitely room in the city for
two clinics.


"North Port is a growing
community, and they're
going after an emergency
room there, and that's a dif-
ferent business," he said.
"We're going to be more of
the treatment clinic, more of
a kind of tertiary hospital. It'll
have a whole other look and
feel."
He hopes to have the
project off the ground as
soon as possible.
"We estimate four to six
months for permitting and


about 12 months to com-
plete the building," Miley
said.
Dr. Lee Gross, behind the
North Port Regional Med-
ical Center, said Miley's clin-
ic will bring more doctors
into the city.
"Clearly North Port needs
more doctors, and anything
that North Port can do to
attract more doctors will
make North Port more at-
tractive to a future hospital,"
he said.

'Tow to Go' available for


Thanksgiving weekend


STAFF REPORT


AAA Auto Club South
and Budweiser are includ-
ing the Thanksgiving week-
end in their "Tow to Go"
program, which provides a
free ride home and vehicle
tow to people who may
have had too much to drink.
Tow to Go will be avail-
able from Wednesday
through Jan. 1 as part of its
expanded holiday schedule.
AAA estimates the program
has kept more than 7,000
potential drunken drivers
off the road since its incep-
tion in 1998.
Tow to Go provides a free
confidential ride home and
tow from a bar or restau-
rant, free of charge, to indi-


viduals who may have had
too much alcohol.
People can call 800-AAA-
HELP (222-4357).
"The busiest time for the
Tow to Go program is dur-
ing the upcoming holiday
season, when more than 80
percent of the call volume is
received," Ed Schatzman,
senior vice president of
automotive services for AAA
Auto Club South, said in a
statement. "Thanksgiving
weekend through New
Year's Day, Tow to Go is
offered to anyone who may
need it because we want
everyone to make it home
safely to their families this
holiday season."
Tow to Go is offered in
Atlanta, Savannah, Nash-


ville and throughout Flor-
ida. Any adult who needs a
ride home from a bar or
restaurant during the dates
listed above can call the
phone number and AAA
will dispatch a tow truck
and take both the driver and
his vehicle home.
AAA and Budweiser also
encourage individuals to
plan for a safe celebration
by being or choosing a des-
ignated driver. If you're
hosting an event where al-
cohol is served, AAA en-
courages you to be a
responsible host by serving
nonalcoholic drinks, moni-
toring your guests' con-
sumption and making sure
no one drives if his sobriety
is in question.

Indians beat Bobcats


on the Preserve


BYTRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


The Venice High School
girls soccer team extended
their unbeaten streak to
seven games Tuesday night
at North Port High School
with a 4-0 win over the
Bobcats.
"It was a good team effort
tonight," Venice coach Shel-
don Chamberlain said. "I
think everyone was playing
the way we wanted to. The
goals were right there, this is
the way we practice every
week."
The Indians started off
slow, getting just four shots
on goal with one going in off
the foot of midfielder Monet
Strammer, in the first 35
minutes of play. Then, with
a little less than five minutes
to play, forward Dana La-
Rocque got her first shot on
goal after missing most of
the first half with an injury.
Not too long after, she got
her second.


That one went in the net
off an assist from forward
Tori Bolyard to put the
Indians up 2-0 at halftime.
"She read the play the
whole way," Chamberlain
said. "She's an outstanding
player."
In the second half, mid-
fielder Myra Jenkins got on
the board for the Indians
with about 18 minutes to
play. LaRocque followed up'
four minutes later with her
second goal of the game to
put Venice up 4-0. The
Venice defense held for the
next 14 minutes to preserve
the shut out.
The win, at North Port
was Venice's second in four
days.
The Indians snuck past
Fort Myers High School 2-1
Saturday at Wellfield Park in
Venice.
LaRocque had both goals
-for Venice.
"Dana's second goal was
an excellent example of her
speed and shot accuracy as


she out-hustled the goal
keeper on a rebound ball
from the keeper to shoot the
ball into an open net,"
Chamberlain said.
Strong defense from
Kristina Swanson and goal-
keeper Daiana Lambrecht
accounted for another shut-
out for Venice.
Midfielders Emily Crem-
ision, Myra Jenkins, Chelsea
Rose and Monet Strammer
switched from a 4-3-3 set to
a 4-4-2 set, which allowed
Venice to possess the ball
more and eventually led to
the winning goal.
After Thanksgiving, the
Indians enter a crucial part
of their schedule. Venice
faces district-foes Bayshore
High School Tuesday at
Powell-Davis Stadium at
7:30 p.m. After that, the
Indians head to Lakewood
Ranch High School for a
road game Thursday at 8
p.m.

Pirates stress teamwork


in win over Venice


BY GARY BROWN
SPORTS WRITER


The Port Charlotte High
girls basketball team is be-
ginning to take to the idea of
team play.
Port Charlotte raised its
record to 2-0 with a con-
vincing 65-52 victory over
visiting Venice High School
Tuesday night.
The Pirates led almost
from the beginning and had
three players score in dou-
ble figures. All-area point
guard Sara Barton led with
16 points, getting five of.
them in the first quarter as
the Pirates got off to a 17-10
edge.
Erin Moody added 13
points, Stephanie Bagiardi
added 12 and freshman
Abbi Wik scored nine com-
ing off the bench.
"We're stressing team
ball a lot," Port Charlotte
Head Coach Stephanie Tay-
lor said. "The girls played
very unselfishly tonight."


The Pirates put the ball
up court effectively most of
the game and cashed in big
at the free-throw line, mak-
ing 26 of 35 attempts. Venice
also shot well from the free-

"We need to force
turnovers with our
press because we're
not a good outside
shooting team. But
we couldn't do that:'

Venice coach
Bruce Reichenbach

throw line, but only had 11
attempts, making eight of
them.
'"Abbi did well for us to-
night coming off the bench,"
Taylor said. "We're still work-
ing on defense, but we'll get
there."
Lauren Ramey led the
Indians with 13 points, and


Jennifer Thoennissen added
11. Ramey canned four field
goals for eight points in the
final quarter as the Indians
crept within seven points
(57-50) before the Pirates:
pulled away at the end.
Kirsten Walche and Lindsay
Reigecker each added seven
points.
"We need to force turn-
overs with our press be-
cause we're not a good out-
side shooting team," Venice
coach Bruce Reichenbach
said. "But we couldn't do
that."
Venice committed 16
turnovers, and the Pirates
made 14.
The Pirates will play in
the Gene German Turkey
Shootout on Friday and Sat-
urday at Charlotte High
School They will open ag-
ainst Dunbar at 10:30 a.m.
Venice- will take on Ocala
Trinty Catholic at 4:45 p.m.
Friday in a classic at Wesley
Chapel.

Venice football team looks forward to next year


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


The mood at the final
Linebacker Club meeting of
the 2007Venice High School
football season was a mix-
ture of what you might ex-
perience at a funeral and
what you might expect at a
wedding.
Players, coaches and fans
mourned the early endto0'
postseasor filled with liigh~
expectations. The Indians
(7-4, 5-0) fully expected to
beat Cape Coral High Sc-
hool in the first round, but
they came up short, losing
27-10. By the end of the
meeting, there was an air of
optimism for new begin-
nings and the year ahead.
"Friday night was proba-
bly the toughest loss I've
had to deal with as a coach
and I've been doing this


since 1999. With all that said
and done, we definitely
have a bright future as far as
this football team goes,"
Venice Head Coach John
Peacock said.
Indeed. Venice does lose
23 seniors, but the four
players receiving awards at
the Linebacker Club's Tues-
day luncheon will all be
returning next season.
he Da*,y South Rudy
Award for Piactice Player of
the Week went to junior Dre
Archer. The Babe's Ace Hard-
ware and Porter Paints Spe-
cial Teams Player of the
Week award went to junior
Ethan Mix. The Nautical Tra-
der Defensive Player of the
Week award went to junior
Gerald Oriol. The Regions
Bank Offensive Player of the
Week award went to sopho-
more Tley Burton.
"We're pretty bummed


out," Mix said. "Still a little
hurting from Friday, but
we're going to come back
out and we're going to get
on it next year. We expect to
be district champs."
"It's definitely disap-
pointing to not be playing
right now," Burton added.
"We expected to be playing
in the final four or even in
states. We just have to wait
until next year_ to play,,at.
states."
Every playoff team ends
the year with a loss except
the state champions. This
was a good, football team.
Much better than last year's.
After a 1-9 season last
year, Peacock, a first-year
coach, seems to have the
Indians back on the right
track.
"I've always heard all my
life that to build a house
you've got to start with a good


foundation," former-Venice
Head Coach Jim Powell said.
"Well, I think our coaches
have built that foundation
and I'm looking forward to
seeing this success. It's
going to get better because
the first year you've got to
get your feet on the ground
and then you're going to get
better each year. You don't
have to worry about re-
building because' the foun-
dation is already there and
you've just got to keep
adding to it."
The foundation for the
immediate future lies with
the returning players. Ger-
ald Oriol and Mix will be the
anchors on defense.
"You couldn't find two
better defensive players in
this area," Peacock said. 'At
least I haven't seen them on
film."
On offense, Burton will


return as a veteran quarter-
back.
"I think Trey Burton is the
best player in this area on
offense," Peacock said. "I
would take him above (Sara-
sota quarterback) Casey
Kelly."
The loss of running backs
Paul Costanzo and Jimmy
Laurie will certainlybe ablow
to the running game, but
Archer h asht'WflAlashes of
greatness.
"Dre Archer is going to
have a heavy load next year,"
Peacock said. "He's 5'4", but
you guys have seen what he
can do. He's tough and we're
expecting big things from
him."
The Indians lose all their
starters at wide receiver and
defensive back, with the
exception of Archer, who
also plays corner. Josh Boyle
is expected to fill in nicely


for Gerry Hunek at wideout
Kye Rodgers is expected to
fill in as a defensive back,
punter and fullback. Justin
Grant is also expected to
help fill the void at running
back.
For the newcomers and
the veterans, next year
starts right now.
"We give the kids off this
week but we're going torget
back to work starting Mon-
day," Peacock said. "That's
just something that we have
to do. It'll be tough getting
in there and trying to put it
behind us, but that's just
something we have to do.
That's what we did last year
and it seemed to work out
in our favor."

The big jacks should be
on the beach any day now.
Watch the birds because the
Venice area beaches should
explode with the jacks dri-
ving the bait onto the be-
ach.
I lived on the beach for
seven years and my buddy
Shmarvela lived in the same
building. Approximately
every Thanksgiving weekend
the jacks would arrive.


We each kept our outfits
at our front door awaiting
the onslaught I would phone
him and shout "jack attack."
We each would run out to
the beach in different direc-
tions. We would wave our
caps when we saw the jacks,
which were usually 10-16
pounders. We find the per-
fect lure is a silver spoon. It
is easy to cast against the
onshore breezes.

Crist's visit focuses on environment


Gov. Charlie Crist was honored Monday at
Twin Lakes Park for his efforts to prlotecl
Florida's environment.


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

The mood was decidedly
green Monday at Twin Lakes
Park as Gov. Charlie Crist was
honored with an award for
his ongoing efforts to pro-
mote "sustainability."
County Commissioner
Shannon Staub offered a
definition of sustainability
for the assemblage of state
dignitaries along with a host
of "green" business leaders
and citizens.
"Sustainability is meet-
ing our current generation's
needs without compromis-
ing the needs of the future,"
Staub said. "I like to think of
it as leaving the planet bet-
ter off tomorrow than it is
today."
In his remarks, Con-
gressman Vern Buchanan
prefaced his praise for Crist
by singling out County,
Commissioner Jon Thaxton
as a leader who has "taken a
lot of political hits and stood
up for what is right" in his
struggle to incorporate envi-
ronmental concerns within


current county building ini-
tiatives.
Crist offered some cau-
tionary words in accepting
his award.
"We're on the planet only
so long," Crist said. "I think
it's important for us to real-
ize that we have a duty to
serve the people."
Crist said it was crucial to
be "good stewards" of the
Earth, "because this is God's
creation. If we don't protect
the planet, all the other
issues go away."
Crist cited Brazil's suc-
cessful initiative to wean
itself from dependency on
foreign oil as an example of
what a country can do to
benefit both its citizenry
and the environment.
"They developed eth-
anol," Crist said, "something
we're talking about now and
others are taking hold of. It's
cheaper, cleaner, better -
and you can make it from
things right here in Florida
sugar cane or citrus
waste, for example."
Crist said his goal is "doing
more with less.-Doing it bet-

ter, doing it stronger, doing
it smarter."
The governor concluded
his remarks by praising Sara-
sota County for its role in
leading the way to preserve
the environment.
That role includes the
establishment of an Office
of Sustainability in 2002,
which set a standard for
green building initiatives in
county buildings and lib-
raries. In addition, the cou-
nty's Environmentally Sen-
sitive Lands Protection Pro-
gram has set aside more
than 16,000 acres of land for
habitat and public access.
Other county initiatives
include:
The 2050 Plan, incorporat-
ing smart growth planning
The 2030 Challenge, en-
couraging carbon neutrality
*Water conservation
Solid-waste management
Hybrid buses and vehicles
Limited use of toxins in
pest control
Partnerships with area
businesses to reduce im-
pacts.
Crist signed a set of exec-
utive orders in June estab-
lishing the Governor's Ac-
tion Team on Energy and
Climate Change. He char-
ged this 21-member group
to achieve reduction targets

People who are afraid of the water can learn to swim with a new type of instruction

Total Immersion. It worked for the rabbi of the Jewish Center of Venice.

Rabbi Ann Campbell White floats easily on her back in the back balance position.


STORY AND PHOTOS BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


R abbi Ann Campbell White was afraid of the
water until she learned to swim like a fish.
"I was quite phobic about the water," she
said. "Now I feel like a fish."
Transforming a hydrophobic rabbi into a fish
took just a few lessons at the Berlin Y in Sarasota.
The instructor, Kim Dinell, is a Total Immersion
coach.
As a former life guard who grew up taking all the
traditional swimming classes and tests, while
never being able to help my own mother over-
come her deathly fear of the water, I headed over
to the Y one morning to watch a lesson. "I
"Terry Laughlin wrote the book (Total Immer-
sion)," Dinell said. "He was a competent swimmer
but wanted to be better."
Laughlin learned that only 3 percent of swim-
mers have an innate understanding of what to do
in the water. The rest of us need help, even if we are
training for the Olympics. What he learned also
has transformed aquaphobics into swimmers -
swimmers who are as comfortable in the water as
a fish swimmers like the rabbi.
"We teach everyone from hydrbphobics to
competitors training for the Olympics," Dinell
said. "Because swimming is:skill-based, you can
continue to learn and improve with age. An older
swimmer can beat a younger swimmer, based on
his skill."
All it takes is a willingness to learn the skills.
"We've broken down the strokes to a series of
drills that help people to isolate their body parts,"
Dinell said. "You can't think of everything at once
so skill drills are the ticket."
Back balance is important too, she said.
"People who are thrashing in the water are not
balanced," she said. "It is almost impossible to sink
if you are spread along the surface of the water.
After all, you wouldn't want to dog paddle the
English Channel." .
By keeping the head in the water and stretching
one's body out over the water, one's gliding ability
is increased and it takes less energy to advance
over the surface, much as a long speed skating
blade can propel an ice skater faster than the
rounded blade used by figure skaters. The more of
you that is under water the easier it will be to float.
Keeping one's head above the water makes it more
difficult.


Like her student, Dinell came to swimming
later in life. She began swimming for fitness when
she was 35.
Total Immersion swimming teaches fishlike
swimming rather than the pulling and kicking in-
volved with traditional methods.
In the case of the hydrophobic rabbi, Dinell
started with breathing. The first session, she
learned to put her face in the water and how to
breath. Videos are available to help those who are
more fearful.
Dinell taught White to put her face in the water
in the Y's pool, in the shallow end, near the edge. If-
someone were even more fearful, she might have
them put their face into a bowl of water while out-
side the pool.
White learned quickly and by the second ses-
sion was ready for back balancing. Standing in the
shallow end of the pool, you put your hands on
your thighs, in front, curving your shoulders
inward slightly. Leaning back in the water, without
lifting the head, you find yourself easily floating. As
your face is above water, you can breath normally.
The next step involves rolling to one side. The
face remains out of the waterif one is in the correct
position. White was able to do this right away, get-
ting long in the water, the -basic preparation for
learning to'swim like a fish.
Bobbing in the water in sort of an egg shape is
another skill learned in the second lesson, yet
another technique for making one comfortable in
the water.
"It is very meditative," Dinell said of the various
techniques used in the Total Immersion system.
"You swim more on your side, using that length
for propulsion. There is more of the whole body
working together."
Dinell demonstrated by swimming a lap of the
25-yard pool in just 17 easy strokes, versus the 33
or more strokes that some swimmers use.
"Everything we do is good for the lower back,"
she said. "Everything strengthens the core. It is an
isometric kind of exercise."
White was taking her third lesson. She was
comfortable in the water, could swim like a fish
and was now ready to learn to stroke with both
arms.
Standing side by side in the shallow area of the
pool, Dinell and White matched their strokes and
even the angle at which Dinell wanted White to
bend her arms for the strokes. She also told her
keep the front arm stretched out and in the water


until the finger tips of the other arm touched the
water, thereby maintaining the long body shape
and decreasing the work load.
"Kick as little as possible when working on
strokes," Dinell said. "Seventy percent of the effort
should go into reducing drag."
Lap swimming would come next but in the
Total Immersion system, it's more about quality
of the laps than quantity and cross training in the
gym is encouraged.
When the techniques are mastered, speed will
come.
In just three lessons, a hydrophobic rabbi had
learned to swim like a fish.
"This method is also good for people with phys-
ical limitations," she said. "It has really been a
wonderful gift to me."

This is part two ofa two-
part series.
Hang on to your sanity,
ladies and gentlemen. It's
time for News from Ecine-
ville.
Well, all is well here at
the Ecineville Sun.
It seems that a federal
judge issued a warrant to
search the premises of our
newspaper, leading to the
arrest of several news staff
members for suspicion of
aiding and abetting a sus-
pected international
grouper theft ring, and
possession of illegal
grouper.
They accused us of
buying illegal grouper
caught illegally in interna-
tional waters and stolen
by grouper pirates who
have been stopping and
boarding commercial
grouper fishing boats and
stealing their catch of
grouper. Apparently, pi-
rates have switched from
stealing gold, silver, jewel-
ry and multi-million dol-
lar luxury yachts to steal-

An undercover FBI
agent, who had worked
here posing as a former
busboy and who was hi-
red to work, make that
pose, as an investigative
reporter on our Middle
East desk, noticed the
Edneville Sun was giving
away a lot of grouper.
It is true that we give
away a lot of grouper and
are even considering
sponsoring next year's
grouper parade, which
will feature 50 grouper
swimming down the In-
land Onshore Waterway
from the north point rock
to the South Ecineville
Dairy. The event will take
place in December and all
the grouper will be dres-.

O'tine at 555-00NO.
Back to the alleged
stolen grouper.
It seems that after the
highly trained FBI agent
found out we were giving
away a lot of grouper, he
saw one of the grouper
pirates over at our classi-
fieds department and, in a
brilliant piece of law en-
forcement illogical deduc-
tion, concluded we were
buying stolen grouper.
That of course culmi-
nated in the raid in which
our government shot our
coffee pot, sealed off the
bathrooms and arrested
several reporters.
By the way, the pirate
the undercover agent saw
in classified was here to
place an ad.to sell his
grouper tooth collection.
Well, this is Ted "I'm a
reporter, I'm a reporter"
Rank reporting. I'll see
you next issue with more
liberty and fraternity from
Ecineville. Until then, re-
member, it's all good here
in Ecineville.

Venice Holiday Parade grand marshal named


PHOTO COURTESY OF TONY CAGLIOSTRO
Betty Intagliata has been chosen as grand marshal for the 32nd
annual Venice Holiday Parade.


FROM THE SONS OF
ITALY
Mike Gelormino, presi-
dent, Venice Lodge #2747 of
the Order Sons of Italy in
America, and Sue Hebert, co-
chairs of the Venice Holiday
Parade Committee, have an-
nounced the committee's
selection of Mrs. Elizabeth
(Betty) Intagliata as the
Grand Marshal of the 32nd
Annual Venice Holiday Par-
ade. It is scheduled to begin
at 7 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 24.
As grand marshal, Intag-
liata will lead the main con-
tingents of the parade.
Itagliata hails from Torr-
ington, Conn. In 1981, after
a long career in the Conn-
ecticut public school sys-
tem teaching history, geog-
raphy, and American gov-
ernment she moved with
husband Paul and their
youngest daughter, to Ven-
ice. Asked how the family
came to pick Venice, she
credits a "wicked northeast-
er snow storm" in the late
70s that "shut down traffic"
forcing folks to read "even"
the classified. That is how
she became aware of a Bird
Bay rental unit in warm Flo-
rida. Vacationing for a cou-


ple of summers in the area
made choosing a perma-
nent retirement residence
easy.
After experiencing retire-
'ment life for a couple of
years, Itagliata became the
owner of The Happy Cooker,
a kitchen-dining room arti-
cles gift shop onWestVenice
Avenue sold after 12 years,
in 1992. During that period
she became president, in
1987, of the DowntownVen-
ice Association, and a foun-
der and board member of
Venice Main Street Inc. She
completed and successfully
lobbied the application to
the State of Florida for the
designation, in. March 1988,
of Venice as a Florida Main
Street city.
For 15 years Intagliata
served as vice chair and chair


of the former city council's
advisory board then known
as the Venice Historical Com-
mission. While on the com-
mission she also chaired its
History of Venice Video
Committee, which pro-
duced two 26 minute seg-
ments, tailored to fit class
periods, on the history of
Venice from the time of the
local Indians through 2001.
The video, entitled Ima-
gining Venice, has been
widely distributed through-
out Sarasota County. She
has also chaired the devel-
opment of a curriculum gu-
ide for the Social Studies
Department of the Sarasota
County School District for
use with the history of Ven-
ice video.
During the same period
Intagliata facilitated four
organizational meetings that
led to the establishment of
the Venice Area Historical
Society (VAHS) in 1990, serv-
ing as its first President She
continued active in the soci-
ety, arid since 2003 has again
served as president. Her
involvement restoring the
Venice Train Depot led to her
creation of the DepotDocent
Program that has seen the
VAHS volunteers give tours
for more than 8,000 visitors
since 2004. She served on the
Gunther Gebel-Williams Sta-
tue Steering Committee, and


chaired the dedication of
the statue in December
2005. She wrote, on behalf
of VAHS, a grant request to
the Florida Humanities
Council, which approved a
Partnership Grant of $3,000
per year for three years.
Grant monies have been
used to engage major
speakers on city planner
John Nolen and his New
Urbanism concepts, while a
first "oral history program"
will be funded during 2007-
08.
Intagliata's other major
community involvements
include: membership on
the Sarasota County Histor-
ical Commission (2004-pre-
sent); chair of the Historic
Preservation Coalition of
Sarasota County (2005-07),
and workshop chair for the
Florida Trust for Historic
Preservation State Con-
ference held in May 2007.
"Betty's passion for Ven-
ice, what it was, what it is
and what it still can be, and
the work she puts into that
passion," said parade com-
mittee cochair Hebert, "is
inspiring."
Intagliata earned a bach-
elor of science in history
and a master of science
degree in social sciences
from the Central Connec-
ticut State University in
New Britain.

Preschool class gets a new look


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

Local grandmother Lynn
Bauereiss wanted to share
what it's like to go to a beau-
ty shop with her grand-
daughter's pre-school class.
Students of Venice No-
komis United Methodist
Child Care Center, Noko-
'mis, got a treat recently as
they each got a makeover,
even the boys.
"The children had been
playing in the classroom
with their 'beauty shop


prop box,' filled with wigs,
hair dryers, empty hair
spray cans, brushes and
combs. They wanted to see
what it was like to use them
in real-life," said Debbie
Moran, preschool teacher.
Bauereiss, owner of
Creative Touch Hair Salon
in Laurel, opened her doors
to the class. Each student
had his or her hair washed
in special sinks and then sat
under the hair dryers. They
played with wigs and and
pretended to be clients of
the salon.

Bauereiss's granddaugh-
ter, Ian Jensen, along with
the entire class, got a new
hairdo at a real beauty shop.
The trip was part of a
program to show the stu-
dents situations their par-
ents get involved in on a


daily basis.
"The children will learn
more with this experience
and retain it because so
many of their senses were
involved," Moran said.

Take Stock in Children of
Sarasota County Inc. is a
scholarship and mentoring
program for underprivi-
leged children. Children are
selected in the sixth grade

level guidelines. A child
selected to the program
agrees to remain drug, alco-
hol and crime free through
high school. The child also
agrees to meet weekly with a
mentor during the school
year. In return for this
promise, the child earns a
four-year tuition-only
scholarship (two years com-


munity college, two years in
a university).
Through the end of the
year, due to some special
matching funds available
through the Florida Take
Stock board of directors and
the Florida Association of
Community Colleges, every
$1 donation will result in $60
available to purchase schol-
arships for underprivileged
children.

STORY from Page 6B


single guy they captured from
England.
After a brief trial lasting all of
eight to 10 minutes, John Smith was
sentenced and spent nearly a
month confined to a teepee with
two snarling dogs and the daughter
of the chief of the tribe, who
weighed as much as three buffalos.
John who by this time was a
doughnut short of a dozen, was in
no way interested in the daughter,
or buffalo for that matter learned
that the daughter's name was
Pocahontas and she owned the
local, KFC franchise in nearby
Cleveland.
History tells us that when
Pocahontas learned that: Smith
wasn't his real name, she persuaded


her dad, the chief, to let him go.
After being released, John returned
to his boat only to find his entire
crew completely stoned from
smoking cornhusks. He did, howev-
er, manage to get them together
long enough to make the return trip
to England.
After explaining everything to
Prince Charles, he was granted
another boat, 300 kegs of rum and a
new edition of Rand McNally's Map
of the World. They made the trip
across the ocean in record time,
and, as it. turned out, this was a
good thing as they were out of rum.
Jn 1621 John Smith landed the
Nifia, followed by the Pinta and the
first version of QE II in what is now
known as St. Augustine, Fla. No,


wait ... that was that other guy
again.
Anyway, John and a group of
people whom he had conned into
making the trip with him found a
neat little place to start raising corn.
After, a year raising more corn than
they could eat, they traded what
-was left to the Indians for what is
now Manhattan. As a kicker, how-
ever, John had to throw in three
strands of beads and the leftovers
from the turkey dinner they had
fixed the day before.
Everyone was elated that peace
had been made between the
Indians and the white man, and
they had another party that lasted.
three days. All the Indians from
Toledo and Cleveland were invited


to share in the feast. Every night,
however, they all got toasted from
the cornhusks that one of the cooks
had sneaked into stuffing that was
used in the turkeys.
Pocahontas, who had remem-
bered John from the teepee and still
had the hots for him, had spent the
last three months in a Weight
Watchers program and was down to
two buffalos. Additionally, she had
sold her KFC franchise to Dennis
Kucinich, who later sold it to one of
the crew members from the UFO he
had seen just weeks earlier.
But, all ended well, and to this
very day, on the last Thursday in
November, we all sit down to enjoy
turkey and smoke cornhusks.
And to quote Mr. Harvey, "Now


you know the rest of the.
story."

FRAN VALENCIC


About 50 years ago Bing
Crosby sang, "When I'm
weary and I can't sleep, I
count my blessings instead


of sheep and I fall asleep
counting my blessings." If
everyone in Venice takes
Bing's advice, we should all
be having plenty of good
nights.
What makes
Venice great?
I declare it's the spirit.
While the holiday season
highlights the spirit of
friendship and giving to
others, if you read this col-
umn each week, you know
that spirit is alive each day.
I know when people
check their gratitude jour-


nals they see the benefits of
giving hearts. Featured clubs,
special people and everyone
else who graces these pages
make our lives better. For'
that I offer a huge, Bravo! I
include everyone who has a
part in the Christmas
Parade this Saturday. Thank
you for lifting our spirits.
Bikes and Bears

Fant commits her time to
this worthwhile event even

Club commodore Audrey
Rice invites everyone in
Venice to catch the spirit and
donate teddy bears to the
Yacht Club for distribution to
Kids by the Sea. The organ-
ization was founded by Jim

to cancer 11 years ago.
