Watch group is exerting pier pressure


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Fighting, cussing, other
unspeakable goings-on un-
der cover of darkness on the
Venice Municipal Fishing
Pier can you stand it?
This is Venice, not Detroit.
People from "Up North"
come down here to get
away from that kind of be-
havior.
"Late at night, there was
drinking, smoking (dope),"
said Papa's Bait & Snack
Shop Manager Tom Wendel,
"and who knows what else."
The bait shop is located
on the 720-foot-long refur-
bished pier.
There were so many
problems that the city con-
sidered closing the pier at
night. The pier, located at
Sharky's on the Pier restau-
rant on West Harbor Drive,
is currently open 24 hours a
day, seven days a week.
"We also had some terri-
torial problems, you know,
some of the locals get set in
their ways, somebody else
moves into their favorite


(fishing) spot, one thing
leads to another," Venice
Police Marine Patrol Officer
Paul Joyce said. "Everything
is much better and calmer
now that we have eyes and
ears on the pier."
People even camped
overnight at the pier, in their ,
cars.
About Pier Watch -"
Pier Watch consists of 12-
15 local volunteers (men
and women), who frequent
the site. They are affection-
ately called "Pier Rats."
Their job is to keep their
eyes and ears open and call
authorities when they see a
dispute building, but not
get involved. They are civil-
ians, armed only with a
copy of the city ordinance
governing the pier.
"What we are hoping for
is a Neighborhood Watch
kind of thiig on the pier,"
Wendel said.
Joyce said the group has
made a difference.

Parties wrangling over rental appeal


Venice, county headed to mediation


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Parties are gearing up for
, --an -appeal that could chart
the future of home rentals
in Venice for years to come.
City attorney Bob Ander-
son this week announced a
number of procedural de-
terminations on requests
filed by the appellees in
September regarding short-
term house rentals by Jack-
sonville businessman Ste-
phen Milo.
Venice City Council will
hear the appeal on Dec. 11,
even though attorneys are
still arguing over the ground
rules.
First, Milo's attorneys re-
quested Anderson recuse
himself from representing
the city in the matter, alleg-
ing Anderson has a conflict
of interest or at least the
appearance of one.
"I am of the opinion that
no grounds exist for my
recusal and therefore I shall
continue to represent the


SVenice City Council in this
matter," Anderson replied
in a Nov. 16 letter to the par-,
ties involved in the short-
* term rental appeal. -
N'e xt ,
they re-
quested An-
derson re-
consider his
Aug. 28 de-
cision that
found Merle
Graser and
Marilyn J.i
Hollowell. Anderson
who reside
near some of the rentals,
have standing in the case.
Anderson denied that re-
quest as well.
Finally, they filed a re-
quest for additional con-
flicts-of-interest back-
ground checks. That was
granted. Graser and Hollo-
well, who joined in the ap-
peal. were omitted from the
first conflict checks. Plus.
there are three new council
members who recently took
office.


Anderson said he would
conduct the checks during
the Nov. 27 city council
meeting.
Dickering
With only weeks to go
before the hearing, attor-
neys in the case are also
dickering with Anderson
over how to conduct the
hearing.
Attorneys disagree over
the definition over what
constitutes a de novo, or
new, trial under the city
ordinance.
At stake is whether the
parties can introduce new
evidence for council to con-
sider, or if the appeal will be
based only on the evidence
previously introduced.

Bella Citta develop-
ment is the focus of
dispute.
BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Venice and Sarasota
County will resume efforts
to resolve their differences
over the county's land use
compatibility principles in a
mediation session on Mon-
day (Nov. 26).
The three-and-a-half-
hour meeting will be a pub-
lic hearing. It will start at 10
a.m. at the county's admin-
istrative offices in Sarasota.
"In the 18-plus years I've
served the city of Venice,
I've never heard of elected
officials attending a media-
tion session," said Bob
Anderson,. city attorney.
"Usually, staff members sit
in on such meetings. City
Manager Marty Black and I
will participate. All five
county commissioners will
be present. That is rare."


An alternate dispute res-
olution process was begun
last June by the county.
under the rules of the Joint
Planning and Interlocal
Service Boundary Agree-
ment to which both parties
agreed last January. The
action contested Venice's
approval of the rezoning of
the proposed Bella Citta
development.
The county contends
that the rezoning violates
Section 11(1) of the JPA by
allowing higher densities in
developments that abut
existing ones.
Bella Citta proposed
building 180 townhouses
and condominiums on the
46-acre parcel, at about four
units an acre. But 26 of
those acres are wetlands
and cannot be built upon.
So the density becomes
nine units per acre.
Sorrento Ranches, the
abutting neighborhood, is a
community of 5-acre home-
sites, and it objects to the
proposal.


Compatibility,
Monday's mediation
comes two weeks after a
unanimous vote by Venice
City Council to request a
six-month extension to re-
examine compatibility in
amending the city's Comp-
rehensive Plan.
When the Venice Plan-
ning Commission reversed
an earlier vote denying the
Bella Citta rezoning peti-
tion, and the city council
endorsed their action, the
county initiated the dispute
resolution process.
According to Black, if
mediation fails, the county
could "elect to pursue legal
action, and the city may
proceed in its review of the
stayed rezoning petition."
Earlier this month, he ad-
vised the city -council that
the Bella Citta rezoning
hearing will not be sched-
uled until mediation is con-
cluded.

You want to hear some-
thing that'll make you so mad
you'll just want to light a cigar

A story this week said lawns
are lush and green around
Palm Beach mansions despite
watering restrictions we all
chafe under. Sure, these peo-
ple don't mind paying any
amount for water, but how
could they legally bypass
usage restrictions?
They used the law. The law
says new landscaping can be
watered without regard for
restrictions. So, in Palm Beach,
when a landscape drooped,
the Super Rich replaced it.
New sod. New shrubs. Daily

More challenges to Renaissance filed


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Last week it was the
Renaissance project devel-
oper who filed an appeal
over a planning commis-
sion decision denying its
Wal-Mart site plan.
Now it's neighbors of the
proposed 73-acre Ren-
aissance project who are fil-
ing the appeals.
On Nov. 21 Marshall
Happer turned in the
appeals paperwork, along
with a petition containing
183 signatures of residents
who live in neighboring
Venetian Golf & River Club
on Laurel Road, and a check
covering the $600 filing fee.

It's not about the proposed
Wal-Mart or the planned
hotel, say representatives
of a group of Venetian Golf
& River Club residents
who filed two appeals. It's
about creating a mixed-
use neighborhood versus
a big box, regional
shopping center.


the commission's approval
on Nov. 6 of the Renaissance
development's phase 1A site
plan involving a hotel and
retail stores on the western
portion of the project. It
claims the height excep-
tions originally granted
were contingent upon the
700-unit residential compo-
nent of the plan that was


later pared down to 200
units, and a central park
that was replaced with a
Wal-Mart.
Now that the park and res-
idential units are scaled back,
there's no longer a reason to
grant the height exception in
phase IA, Rigdon said.
The other appeal sup-
ports the Nov. 6 planning


commission decision that
denied the lB portion of the
plan the Wal-Mart retail
center site plan.
Last week, attorney for
Waterford Companies Mark
Barnebey appealed that
decision, arguing the pro-
posed retail center is a per-
mitted use in the commer-
cial general zoning district,


a designation allowed under
the property's land use des-
ignation.
Filing the second appeal
could provide Marshall and
his followers a chance to be
heard before city council on
the matter.
"If we hadn't filed an
appeal, city council would
be stuck with that and not


look at the whole picture,"
Happer said. "We don't
think any of that has been
properly looked at. Now is
the time to study it and deal
with it as a whole, not in
bits."

Their strategy is to bring
the entire project before city
council for review instead of
challenging the project
piecemeal.
The proposed develop-
ment was divided up into
fo phases by the planning
department, but now that the
neWest site plans have chan-
ged for one of the phases,
Happer is concerned the
other phases could change
significantly down the road,
altering the entire project
irreversibly.
"The concept we under-
stood was this was going to
r -be-mixed'use," Happer said.
"The fundamental issue is
whether the area will be a
neighborhood or a regional
shopping center."
He's also concerned the
planning commission didn't
adequately address traffic
congestion.
"Two of the greatest rea-
sons (not to create a region-
al shopping center) is Kn-
ights Trail and Laurel Roads.
"If you are going to pick a
location for a regional shop-
ping center with box stores,
you don't want to pick a
location with dead ends."
Happer said the develop-
er has proposed selling the
property by tracts.
"None of that has been *
placed on the table and
looked at," he said.
The nature of things
Michael Rigdon, who sign-
ed the appeals on behalf of
the Venetian Golf & River
Club petitioners, questioned
the development based on
the overall master plan for
that part of the city. He
called it mostly nonexistent.
"It (the comprehensive
plan) increases density to-
ward Interstate 75, and chan-
ges from residential on the
island to commercial to in-
dustrial," he said. "To me,
that's not a master plan, it's a
sketch. We believe there
should be a plan for this
area of the city.
"I understand the area is
S(zoned) commercial gener-
al. I support some commer-
cial development in the area
because we need it desper-
ately. We need stores and a
neighborhood shopping cen-
ter, not a big box superstore.
That's what's (planned) in
there now.
"The Knights Trail Village
in the draft comprehensive
plan ... what we worry
about is next we will have a
series of regional big-box
retail centers that would
change the nature of this
area, and mark it as a retail
rather than a neighbor-
hood," Rigdon said.

Forty jobs and 500 applicants


Beautification


rewarded


BY ROGER BUTTON ,
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Five hundred people
have already applied for
positions at the new Honda
dealership being built in
Venice.
A surprised Jeanie Lav-
Allee, corporate controller
for the controlling dealer-
ship, Wesley Chapel Nissan,
North Tampa, said, "We
have been overwhelmed
with the responses to our
advertising."
A few weeks ago the


company posted notices at
the construction site of the
new Venice Honda, 955
South U.S. 41 Bypass, sub-
sequently posting a similar
notice on an Internet Web
site.
LavAllee said the selec-
tion process is under way,
and information on all
applicants would be re-
tained as some candidates
initially selected often have
to be replaced.
Forty employees will be
required to operate the
dealership, which is target-


ed to open early in January.
The general sales manager
and Leslie Greenwood, an
experienced office manager
from a Fort Walton Beach
Honda dealership, have
been appointed.
The Venice dealership
will have close to 200 new
Hondas and 70 pre-owned
vehicles with a rotating in-
ventory. The 35,000-square-
foot facility will have service
and sales departments but
no body shop.
Owner Jay Rosario,
through his company, Sun-


coast Imports LLC, ac-
quired the 3.8-acre tract in
front of Venice Isle Estates
in March 2005 and later
purchased the adjoining
Superior Cooling & Heating
property for $1.25 million.
Rosario and partner Joe
Gibbons, president and
CEO, own Wesley Chapel
Nissan. In September they
opened Celebrity Nissan on
Colonial Drive in Orlando.
LavAllee is controller for
all three dealerships.

will provide full service
together with specialist
treasury management, resi-

ahead of them because
there will be more than

Cagliostro said.
Improvisation
The downturn in the

the holiday parade.
"Normally we were able
to solicit enough contribu-
tions to be able to pay for a
commercial float," Caglio-
stro said.
This year the lodge is
improvising by decorating a

advancing the notion that
new testimony should be
considered.
Milo's attorney Richard
Rumrell wants a different
standard followed. He ar-
gues this type of de novo
hearing does not provide
either side the opportunity
to supplement the record
with evidence not heard
previously by the planning
commission.
Anderson previously told
city council members the
hearing would consider on-

His Nov. 16 response did-


n't address the issue.
In August 2006, Zoning

Slaughter made a determi-
nation that short-term
rentals were not legal in the
city's residential neighbor-
hoods.
Milo's attorney appealed
the administrative ruling to

had in the past we aren't
seeing now," he said.
Member Jim Leis said the
group can often take care of
a pier dispute without
bringing police into it.
"Things like speaking to
people about drinking (no
alcohol allowed on the
pier), or informing them
about the number of poles


allowed," Leis said. "We also
want to let people know
about the rules, like' no
jumping off the pier, no bad
language, the fishing rules
... we want to help new fish-
ermen with pier courtesies,
even things like rigging their
gear, identifying fish."
Leis said the group is
waiting for Pier Watch T-


shirts to arrive so people
will be able to identify them.
Word is out
Word about the group
has gotten around, which
helps keep boisterous pier
behavior to a minimum.
"We also observe the fish
that are caught. In the past,
we found people were tak-


ing undersize fish and too
many of them," Leis said.
"We also point out dangers,
like walking behind some-
one who's casting."
Leis said if the fishing
rules are violated, Pier
Watch calls the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission,
Pier visitors do not have'


to have a fishing license to
fish off the municipal pier.
The group is pushing for
changes in city rules (partic-
ularly the number of poles
allowed). Leis wants clarifi-
cation of the number of
fishing lines (two) that can
be in the water per person.
He wants "lines" changed
to "rods" because people save


their space by leaving out as
many as 10 fishing rods.
Leis said the group tries
to enlist volunteers who are
knowledgeable fishermen,
but that is not a require-
ment. For more informa-
tion, call Leis at 488-4035, or

Issues remain after phosphate workshop


BY ANNE
KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER


Lawyers, hydrologists,
utility managers and com-
missioners from both Sara-
sota and Charlotte counties
gathered in North Port com-
mission chambers Monday
for a workshop on a pro-
posed settlement pact with
the Mosaic phosphate-min-
ing company.
Although phosphate
mining doesn't take place
nearby, the industry can
influence the regional water
supply, including the My-
akka River, the Peace River
Basin and the Big Slough
watershed area.
"A (Department of Envi-
ronmental protection)
study documented the ac-
cumulated impacts from
mining, agriculture and in-
dustry, and it found 591,462
acres of native uplands have
been converted to other
uses. That's 924 square
miles," said Ed de la Parte,
special environmental
counsel for Charlotte Coun-
ty. 'Also, 213 acres of wet-
lands have been lost. That's
why we're so very con-
cerned with the impact on
the water supply."
The agreement calls for
Mosaic to take extra steps to
mitigate its impacts to the
flow of the Peace River. The
deal also states a site for a
6.5 billion-gallon reservoir
would be provided "at no
charge." Monitoring of
water quality will also take
place. If a health and safety
issue arises, an immediate
injunction can be sought to
stop mining.
In exchange, the local
governments would agree
not to litigate or oppose
Mosaic's operations, unless
such legal action was need-
ed to protect citizens
against an "imminent, seri-
ous threat to the health,
safety and welfare."
Unstoppable
Negotiations between re-
gional players and Mosaic
have resulted in the compa-
ny agreeing to protect some
20 creek areas. ,
"Because of state rules
and regulations now, there's
nothing that anyone can do
to stop mining, but in the
meantime, instead of allow-
ing the litigation process to
continue, this pact is, in
essence, trying to get some
sort of binding agreement
to try and protect the envi-
ronment to the best of our
ability," said North Port
CommissionerVanessa Car-
usone.
North Port has very little
say in the matter, however.
Because it's not party to the
litigation, the city can't trig-
ger any of the provisions
which Mosaic must meet.
Litigation has cost mem-
ber governments between
$14 million and $15 million
so far, according .to Doug
Mason, general counsel for
the Peace River/Manasota
Regional Water Supply Au-
thority.
"The compact creates an
open dialogue on future
issues," he said of the agree-
ment. "If we have an issue,
we can bring it to Mosaic. It
provides a realistic ending
to litigation."
The agreement is for 15
years, with an option to
renew for another 15 years.
Impact
Commissioners had sev-
eral concerns, the primary
one being that cumulative
impact analyses, which are
mandated by federal stat-
utes, are not being conduct-
ed.
"I think, we as a commis-
sion, we want to have some
kind of input into this," said
North Port Commissioner
Barbara Gross. "It looks like
the agreement is going to go
forward, and I think it has a
lot of good things in it. But
for the cumulative impact
studies, I'd like to see that


kind of thing go in there."
She said the commission
should make their feelings


known to county commis-
sioners before they discuss
the agreement later this
month.
Several North Port com-
missioners, including Car-
usone and Jim Blucher,


wanted to avoid being in-
volved with litigation as
much as possible.
"If we see something
wrong, we can take action,"
said Carusone. "I think our
biggest key is communica-


tion. I don't know what else
we can do as a city with no
voting rights."
The Charlotte County
Commission voted 4-1 to
approve the agreement
Tuesday. Sarasota County


commissioners will address
the issue Nov. 27. Lee
County has requested that
the three counties hold a
joint meeting, but no such
meeting has been sched-
uled.


"I think as a city, we need
a strategy to look at this as
we go down the line," said
Commission Chair Fred
Tower III.

Manatee Community College to raise tuition and fees


The new increase will raise in-state tuition by
$4.13 per credit hour, going from $69.69 to
$73.82.


College's board of trustees
approved a hike in tuition
and fees Wednesday,' effec-
tive spring term 2008.


Dr. Carol Probstfeld, vice
president of business and
administrative services, pre-
sented a breakdown of the
tuition increase to board
members.
The last tuition increase
was June 2006, when the
board voted for a 2.5-per-


cent increase that raised the
cost for in-state students
from $66.11 per credit hour
to $69.69.
The new increase will
raise in-state tuition by
$4.13 per credit hour, going
from $69.69 to $73.82. A
full-time resident will pay


$885.84 tuition and fees
compared to the current
rate of $836.28 for 12 load

cludes a $177.26 out-of-

$11.82 toward financial aid;
a $5.91 student activity fee;
and $17 capital improve-
ment fee.
Local update
During a Venice update,
MCC-Venice Campus Ex-
ecutive Officer Ann Roggero
said enrollment has in-
creased in the past five
years, with 2,544 students
enrolled in the fall of 2007
compared with 1,841 having
attended in 2003.
"Not only are there more
people attending MCC Ven-
ice, but they are taking more
classes," Roggero said.
There is a growing trend
of more students attending
the Venice campus from
North Port. In 2003, there
were 463 students fromVen-
ice compared to 361 from
North Port. In 2007, 690 stu-
dents from North Port are
enrolled while 576 Venice
students are enrolled.
Economic indicators
point to community college
enrollment increasing as
the economy slows, accord-
ing to Roggero. She cited
such events as the recent
PGT layoffs causing some
people to re-evaluate their
position and want to pursue
a new direction.
On the negative side,
Roggero said, other colleges,
such as Edison and Gulf
Coast Community College,
are waking up and begin-
ning to infiltrate MCC-Ven-
ice's territory.
MCC's partnership with
the University of South Flor-
ida is growing and expected
to help increase enrollment
!At MCC, she said.

Search committee
A 19-member search com-
mittee for a new MCC presi-
dent was finalized by board
members after much discus-
sion about the proper way to
proceed.
The trustees wanted to
ensure they picked commit-
tee members that would rep-
resent the school's entire geo-
graphical base and meet
standards of ethnic diversity.
Two MCC students and
eight community representa-
tives were selected. Student
members are Natasha Clem-
ons (MCC Bradenton) and
Carol Gallegos (MCCVenice).
Community members in-
clude: Robert Blalock (Man-
atee County); Rose Carlson
(Manatee County); Edward
Jennings (Manatee County);
Gene Matthews (South Sara-
sota County); Lamar Matt-
hews Jr. (geographic bound-
ary crosser); Roy McBean
(Sarasbta County); Lynn Mer-
gen (Manatee East-Lake-
wood Ranch), and Alex Mos-
eley (South Sarasota County).
The board elected Ron
Allen as chair and Lamar
Matthews Jr. as vice chair of
the committee.
The board of trustees had
previously selected commit-
tee members from trustees
and college representatives.
Those members include:
trustees Ron Allen and
Beverly Beall; faculty mem-
bers Dr. Ray Hundley, Dr.
Felix Rizk and Gary Russell;
administrators Peg Lowery,
executive director, Foun-
dation for MCC Inc.; and Dr.
Idelia Phillips, director, career
and technical education; and
career employee Joseph Loc-
cisano.
The board added a second
career employee, Patricia
Schaefer, to the search com-
mittee Nov. 21.

OUR VIEW


Sheriff taxing unit a tough sell politically


Sarasota County has begun looking
into the possibility of establishing a
municipal services taxing unit for
funding the operations of the coun-
ty sheriff's office.
It's an idea that could create a fairer
method for funding the sheriff's office
and possibly more clarity for taxpayers.,
But it won't happen anytime soon.
Chances are great it won't happen at all.
The matter will be taken up initially by
the county Charter Review Committee,
but all real decisions will be political.
Since a change would be complicated
and would bring a redistribution of tax
burdens, it would be politically difficult, if
not impossible.
That doesn't mean the idea lacks merit.
Establishing an MSTU would remove
the sheriff's operation from the overall


county budget. The sheriff's $88 million
budget is now 28 percent of the general
fund budget. Tax bills would reflect the
separate line item.
As the system exists now, all county
taxpayers pay property taxes that support
the sheriff's office. This is a potential issue
for the cities, whose taxpayers contribute
on the same level as residents in the unin-
corporated county although the cities
have police departments of their own.
Sarasota County Commission Chair
Nora Patterson drew attention to the
issue at a recent commission workshop.
"Every city taxpayer is subsidizing law
enforcement in the area," said Patterson,
who is a former Sarasota city commis-
sioner.
City taxpayers pay as much as resi-
dents of the unincorporated areas, but


receive a lower level of service.
An MSTU would change that. The tax-
ing unit would include only the unincor-
porated area, the area receiving full ser-
vices.
According to one scenario, the cities
would then contract with the district for
specific services, such as traffic enforce-,
ment, court. security, laboratory services
and a portion of the county jail opera-
tions.
The cities would love this, Patterson
said; they'd sign on in a minute because
their taxes would drop for the same ser-
vices they're receiving now.
On the other hand, taxpayers in unin-
corporated Sarasota would see a substan-
tial tax hike, since a smaller tax base
would be supporting sheriff's services.
County staff estimated the typical tax bill


for a $300,000 home would rise by more
than $100 in the unincorporated areas of
the county.
One option is to establish a "detention
MSTU" for the unincorporated, county
and charge cities for use of the jail. But
there could be a big problem here also.
Running the jail, which is used by all,
takes $24 million of the total sheriff's bud-
get. But by state law, salaries of correc-
tions officers cannot be included in an
MSTU. And of the total fiscal year 2006
corrections budget of $20 million, $16
million was for salaries. So there's little
incentive for that change.
At some point the cities may press for a
law enforcement MSTU, but there seems
to be little advantage and a big tax dis-
advantage from the county's perspec-
tive.


Endangered,


threatened


not the same


PATRICK ROSE
GUEST COLUMNIST


On Sept. 12, the IUCN
World Conservation Union
officially declared the Flor-
ida manatee endangered
using exactly the same cri-
teria state officials are at-
tempting to use to justify
downgrading the manatee's
status from endangered to
threatened.
After a scientific status
review at the international
level, the Florida manatee
was declared endangered
'on the Red List, which is
recognized as the most reli-
able evaluation of the
world's species. The mana-
tee's status evaluation was
conducted and also review-
ed by some of the world's
most qualified sirenian sci-
entists who based their rec-
ommendation for listing as
Endangered on the most
recent scientific data.
Incongruously, that was
the day the Florida Fish &
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission was scheduled to
vote on whether to reclassi-
fy the manatee to a lesser
state: imperiled status a
vote that marine industry
representatives and go-fast
boating interests have sup-
ported for many years.
But just two days before
this monumental vote, Gov.
Charlie Crist came to the
rescue and asked the com-
mission for a reprieve for
manatees, wisely urging it
to postpone the vote, while
also questioning the accu-
racy of the method used to
estimate the size of the
manatee population.
Ultimately, the commis-
sion listened to the gover-
nor and unanimously voted,
to postpone the manatee's
reclassification, but under
pressure from boating and
development interests it
will revisit this issue at its
Dec. 5 meeting.
How could- the FWC,
claiming to be using IUCN's
widely supported listing/
delisting criteria, conclude
that manatees are no longer
endangered and move to
downlist them? The answer
is simple.
While the FWC adopted
IUCN's criteria for endan-
gered species, it opted to
call species that met those
criteria threatened instead
of endangered. Ironically,
the commission openly


declares that manatees,
with fewer than 2,500
adults, face a "very high risk
of extinction" but want to
wait until a species' risk of
extinction is "imminent"
before declaring it endan-
gered a sure recipe for
future extinctions.
The FWC continues to
nonsensically argue protec-
tions won't change if mana-
tees are downlisted. In light
of the hundreds of mana-
tees killed since the unjusti-
fiable reclassification pro-
cess began, this argument
seems disingenuouis atbe'st'.
At worst, a change in sta-
tus at this time could have
serious consequences, like
cuts in funding for research,
rescue and enforcement
programs. Already numer-
ous law enforcement posi-
tions are proposed to be cut
to meet state budget short-
falls.
Furthermore, it is widely
recognized that the natural
springs and power plant
discharges most manatees
depend upon to survive the
coldest winter days are like-
ly to be lost in the not-too-
distant future. Unless Flor-
ida's springs are protected
and alternatives to the pow-
er plants are found and'
implemented, there is also
consensus that manatees
could suffer catastrophic
winter losses leading to
more than a 50 percent
decline in the current man-
atee population.
With mortality continu-
ing at a brisk pace this year,
with threats from both
human and natural causes
escalating and with the
manatee's international
biological status confirmed
as endangered, it is time for
the FWC to kill the unwar-.
ranted downlisting effort.
Looking beyond mana-
tees to Florida's other im-
periled species, it is time for
the commission to fix its
imperiled species classifica-
tion system by adopting
one where all of Florida's
most at-risk species can be
fairly reviewed, classified
properly and managed
accordingly to sustain and
recover their numbers in
the wild.
I will do all I can to resist
this politically driven sub-
version of Florida's imper-
iled species listing rule.
Please join me and the
more than 20 million Amer-
icans who have already
made known their objec-
tions to this politically dri-
ven subversion of imperiled
species protections in Flor-
ida.

biologist, is executive direc-

Club.


LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Nokomis critic wrong on all counts


Editor:
In your Nov. 16 issue's Let 'Em Have It, an anonymous
three-year resident states the medallion at Albee Road and
U.S. 41 is a joke. That person states that the Nokomis Area
Civic Association is also a joke, and that nobody bothers to
attend the meetings.
That person is wrong on every point of criticism that was'
made.
The county government established a revitalization
committee of concerned citizens to act as an advisory
panel and give input from local residents to county plan-
ners. The Nokomis Area Civic Association served as an
aggressive advocacy group that guaranteed that the desires
of more than 1,000 dues-paying members were heard.
The revitalization of Nokomis will create a greatly
enhanced business environment and allow our business
people to compete more effectively with our better-funded
neighbors to the north and south. Nokomis should get its
fair share of public funds for the improvements and
niceties that tax revenue can buy. We have been ignored
long enough.
To criticize John Ask and Bruce Dillon for their efforts is
the ultimate impertinence. These men are volunteers. They
receive absolutely no compensation for their efforts. Bruce
Dillon has given literally thousands of hours of his time and
work to make the revitalization of Nokomis a reality. John
Ask has done the same as president of NACA.
The real joke is the person who criticizes but doesn't take
the initiative to stay informed and be involved in the
process.

County fee hikes threaten local youth sports


,FROM VENICE
LITTLE LEAGUE

On Oct. 23, Sarasota
County approved a plan to
charge an hourly user fee to
our local nonprofit groups
that have access to county/
city athletic fields for their
youth athletic programs.
This new user fee will
:greatly increase the day-to-
Sday operating expenses of
the Venice Little League and
all of the other area athletic
,program providers. These
i new fees will be on top of the
other increasing operating
expenses the Little League
already has, including insur-
ance, field light fees, uni-
forms and equipment
It is our estimation that the
new fees will cost the Little
League approximately an
additional $8,000 to $10,000 a


year. Furthermore, the
League has been doubly hit
this year, as the city of Venice
eliminated its annual stipend
to the League that helped off-
set the county's light fees.
With little hope in sight
that the county commission
will see how this plan puts
local athletic programs at risk
of folding, the user fees will go
into effect beginning for the
spring 2008 season. There-
fore, in order to continuing to
operate our program, and
provide the many benefits it
gives our children, we must
turn to our Venice communi-
ty for help in offsetting these
new fees.
As a League, we do not
believe increasing our cur-
rent fees to pay for this new
expense is the right thing to
do at this time. As a League,
we are keenly aware of the

Little League to raise funds through advertisements


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

Paulits and coaches at
Venice Little League are
finding that there is more to
baseball than, well, just
baseball.
Every year, about 300
area youth participate in
Venice Little League base-
ball at $110 per player.
That's a budget of $33,000.
And it's not nearly en-
ough.
Thanks to a plan app-
roved by Sarasota County.
last month, VLL and other
programs will be charged
an hourly user fee, effective
January 2008, for use of
county fields such as Chuck
Reiter and Wellfield parks.
For baseball, it's a $2 per
hour fee.
It might not seem like
much, but VLL uses four
fields all day long on multi-
ple days of the week. Add
that to the fact the City of
Venice has also decided to
cut its $2,000 per year grant
to help fund the field lights,
and Charles Hines of VLL
s that adds up to an
ad tion $8,000-$10,000 a
year in new expenses.
"(VLL) is made up of par-
ents and managers who
want to deal with baseball,
and now we're kind of being


pushed into being fundrais-
ers and full-time employees
to manage some pretty
expensive types of things,"
Hines said.
For years, VLL has held a
lease agreement with Sara-
sota County in which the
county reserved the right to
charge a fee for the fields.
According to Hines, the cou-
nty just never did it. Instead,
the understanding was that
VLL would pay for all the
extras, such as dugouts, press
boxes, stands and conces-
sions. The county paid for
the upkeep of the fields and
painted the lines. VLL still
covers the same expenses in
addition to the new charges.
"The city owns the field,
but the improvements at
the fields, the dugouts, the
stands, the concession stand,
all that. We own that. We've
built those. So basically this
money that we're going to
have to pay the county just
to use the fields takes away
money that we would put
back into the improve-
ments of the fields," Hines
said.
VLL has yet to be hit with
the new charges, but the
new fees go into effect just
before the start of spring
baseball tryouts.
Passing on $10,000 in
additional expenses to each


individual Little League
family would result in about
$34 tacked onto the $110 it
costs to play right now. For
families with two, three and
even four kids playing, that
could get expensive.
"We feel we're already
charging the parents about
as much as we can to cover
it," Hines said. "The answer
from the county was 'well,
just charge your kids a little
bit more.' How many more
families do you want to cut
out? Sometimes you have
people who have two or
three kids in there at the
same time and it just starts
to hurt."
Instead of passing the
cost on to the consumer,
VLL has launched their "Fill
the Fields" campaign. Fence
space at Chuck Reiter and
Wellfield parks is being sold
to companies wishing to
advertise their business.
"If we can get some busi-
nesses to jump in and buy
the signs and fill the fields
with these signs, we will
have covered this expense
for the coming year and be
able to bank a little bit for
the coming years," Hines
said.
Already signs cover
about one-third of the avail-
able fence space. Space is
still available. Businesses

wishing to advertise with
VLL can pay $400 for a sign
that will stay up for three
years. It is also possible to
pay.$250 for one year. Either
way, after the term is up,
$100 covers a one-year
renewal.
VLL is also offering three-
year field sponsorships for


$5,000. Wal-Mart and All-
state Insurance Company
have already signed on to
sponsor fields. Sponsorship
includes naming the field
after the sponsoring busi-
ness, signs on both dugouts
and on the scoreboard.
"If we can get a couple
more people to name a


field, now we're good. Now
we can put some money in
the bank because my fear is
that once the county starts
doing this, it's going to creep
up every year," Hines said.

SPORTS BRIEFS


Football book signing
Author Phil Brooks will
be at the Venice Books-A-
Million Dec. 1 from 1-4 p.m.
for a book signing promot-
ing his book, "Forward Pass:
the Play that Saved Foot-
ball."
Brooks, a 45-year football
coaching veteran, retired
after being inducted into
the Michigan High School
Football Coaches Hall of
Fame in 2004. After that, he
began research for his book.
"Forward Pass" examines
football's transitional stages
from a dangerous game on
the verge of banishment
from American colleges and
universities to our nation's
most popular sport.
Using original notes from
legendary coaches and min-
utes from the Intercollegiate
Football Rules Committee
from 1905-1913, Brooks arg-


ues that the forward pass
and its pioneers, University
of Chicago coach Amos
Stagg, Notre Dame coach
John Heisman and St. Louis
University coach Eddie Coc-
hems, transformed football
from a deadly game in
which fatalities were com-
mon to a wide-open game.
Brooks book is on
shelves now.

mer Gold Divisoin softball

Sarasota County approves



extra stormwater funding


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

f The Sarasota County Com-
, mission approved $68,950 in
l supplemental funds Tues-
*day to consulting firm Wil-
sonMiller for additional
engineering services to the
Englewood Community Re-
development Area Storm-
water Improvement Project.
WilsonMiller will now
revise tlh project's scope,
addressing lift station de-
sign, and will redesign the
stormwater vault's size, a
parking lot over the Cedar
Street vault, revisions to
^ stormwater modeling and
additional surveying.
The additional allotment
will raise the cost for those
4, design services to $378,217.
: The current estimated con-
struction cost for the project,,
is $5.2 million.
"This increase brings clo-
sure to the design of the
stormwater system," Sur-
face Water Manager Warren
Davis told the commission-
ers. "Over the past year, staff
-has worked very hard to
answer questions such as
where do we want to locate
q the system."
Davis said considerable
discussion also went into
what kind of system it
would be a pond system,
a vault system or a combi-
nation of the two.
"We're going to use
vaults," Davis said. "Now
we're to the point where we
can move forward with a
design and bring closure to
that process."
County Commissioner
Shannon Staub said it
,.would bring the project to
the construction stage, as all
necessary property has now
been purchased.
"The only thing holding
us '9-iV.h we .i'&- be
able to bond it out affeihe


January vote, because we
don't know what revenues
we'll be able to get," Staub
said.
That vote, on Jan. 29, will
be on a new "super-exemp-
tion," which would. allow
homestead-
ed property
to receive an
exemption
of 75 per-
cent of a
home's first
$200,000 in
value; plus,
homestead-
ed proper- Staub
ties would
get another 15 percent
exemption for the next
$300,000 in value.

Funding options
Since about half the
value of the county's tax
base is homesteaded prop-
erty, the super-exemption
could force the county into
a deficit of as much as $20
million in fiscal year 2009,
County Administrator Jim
Ley has said severely cur-
tailing available funds for
projects such as the Eng-
lewood Community Rede-


velopment Area Storm-
water Improvement Project.
Added to that concern is
a current lawsuit that will
determine whether CRA
projects can bond at all,
according to County At-
torney Stephen DeMarsh.
"We need to wait for the
results of that suit," De-
Marsh said. "Otherwise, the
ability of CRAs to issue
bonds is going to be very
limited."
Deputy County Admin-
istrator David Bullock then
stepped in.
"We have a whole host of
ways to (pay for this pro-
ject), once we have the cost
nailed down and we know
where the long-term fund-
ing will come from," Bullock
said. "We. can advance
funding with commercial
paper, take it out with long-
term notes. There's all sorts
of ways we can-do it. I don't
see the financing being a
major hold-up."
The additional design
funding was then unani-
mously approved by the
commissioners.

LET 'EM HAVE IT: HOW Will THE ECONOMY AFFECT YOUR HOLIDAY PLANS THIS
YEAR? CALL US AT 207-1111.

Fences have two purposes


Fenced out. I'm calling to remark on the person who
called in about not understanding why people were putting
up wooden fences. Well, maybe it's because they want to get
away from people like him. It's better to have a fence up
than to have to put up with ridiculous neighbors.


Synchronicity. There is
still time to get the traffic
lights on Business 41 aligned
so that there isn't so much
waiting at the stoplights, now
that season's starting.
We who? On the Let'em
Have It column, I wish you'd
please express my com-
ment: When the Gondolier
Sun recommends a candi-
date in an editorial that
says, "We recommend Ed
Martin for Venice Mayor
City Council Seat 7," please
say who "we" are. Disclose
who "we" are, and the qual-
ifications of the people who
are making that statement
and their background. That
would be helpful to know
whether to recognize or
accept your position.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Endorse-
ments are made in the name
of the newspaper, based on
interviews with the candidates

ple could go, and those were
in the know. I went to the
senior center two years ago
because I like to line dance,
but I'm not real good. I got
in the first line, right in the
middle, so I could be be-
hind the instructor so I
could see what she was do-
ing. Every time I turned
around another girl came on
my left side and pushed me
over, and pretty soon I was
the end girl in the first line.
They had at least 15 women
who were in a line dance club
and line danced constantly,
and they just got in wherever
they wanted and pushed
other people out I've never
been back to line dancing
because it wasn't fair. You
don't stand a chance. The
girls that know what they're
doing are all up front I just
had to put my 2 cents in.
Dismayed. I was dis-
mayed to receive a letter
from a major, major devel-
oper here in town with him'
and his wife endorsing the
incumbents in this race for
seats and the mayor in
Venice. It certainly casts a
very, very poor light on the
incumbents. All three of the


challengers have promised
and pledged not to expect
money and support from
businesses and developers.
No right. I believe that
the letter from the Water-
ford Company is showing
how Venice politics really is.
What right do they have to
send me a letter telling me
who to vote for? What is
going on in the city ofVenice
to allow any such construc-
tion by the bridge that is
going on? I think it was
wrong for Waterford to send
out a letter quoting the
Gondolier Sun. Who cares?
I'll bet you won't print this.
Never-ending. Here we
go again. Last year we had to
have the school tax passed
or our schools were going to
close all the malarkey
they gave us. Then when
they were going to cut our
property taxes. Oh, the
schools are going to close
and all the services that we
have will have to be cut
back. Now, if we don't pass
the penny tax, the schools
won't be able to build new
ones, and they'll probably
have to close. It never ends
here in Florida. Terrible.
Illusion. The greatest ob-
stacle to discovery is not ig-
norance, it is the illusion of
knowledge, which our leader
has, like a candle without a
wick.

Women of Faith conducted the Amazing
Freedom conference at the St. Pete Times
Forum Nov. 10-11.


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

N o doubt about it, be-
ing in a huge room
full of women pray-
ing, singing and laughing
together fosters a spirit of
connectedness and can
draw one closer to God.
That was the consensus
of opinion for most of the
nearly 40 women and one
man from Venice who at-
tended the Women of Faith
conference at the St. Pete
Times Forum in Tampa Nov.
10 and 11. And that was
what conference presenters
set out to accomplish dur-
ing the event dubbed "'Am-
azing Freedom."
Women of Faith is a non-
denominational .Christian
ministry designed to en-
courage women to grow in,
faith and spiritual maturity
through a relationship with
Jesus Christ and an under-
standing of God's love and'
grace. The ministry is head-
quartered in Plano, Texas,
and is organized by Thomas
Nelson Inc., having been
started by Steve Arterburn
12 years ago.
A core group of women,
including Luci Swindoll,
Sheila Walsh, Patsy Clair-,
mont, Marilyn Meberg, Nic-
ole Johnson, Anita Renfroe,
and Sandi Patty, headline
the yearly tour to provide
inspiration and entertain-


ment to women in the
United States. By year's end,
about 400,000 women will
have been "lifted up" during
28 conferences in as many
different cities.
This year in Tampa. spe-
cial guests included Max
Lucado, Carol Kent and

ner and Grammy nominee

audience that usually draws
an entertainer back to the
stage.
While she declined the,
curtain call, Mullen per-
formed the final act singing


her peppy "Freedom" song,
which included dancing with
boys and girls, in a hip-hop
routine she choreographed.
The kids were members of
her youth mission group.
Nichole Masker, WOF
spokeswoman, said all pre-
senters have a story to. tell.
Walsh struggled with clinical
depression in the past.

wonderful to know God has
compassion for us, with the
crazy things :we do in this
life." -
Peter Dittmer, the only
man in the, contingent from
Venice, said he enjoyed the
conference and getting closer
to God. He wasn't bothered
that the conference is geared
toward women.
"Each person who comes
here has a- great, uplifting
feeling and a recharging of
their batteries," he said,
When telling her story,
.Walsh related finding free-
dom. through the story of
the "Wizard of Oz," adding a
bit of her Scottish humor.
."I see myself today and I
am not as Ithought I would
be as a child," she said. "Is
that true, can it be for every-
one in here today?"
Walsh said she losther dad


when she was 5 and said God
became her dad.
"God, do you know what
it's like to have my big mug on

she quipped,
Walsh then told a story.
"In the 'Wizard of Oz,'
four people who are broken
meet, seeking the truth. One
says I haven't got a brain,
another is missing a heart,
another lacks courage and
Dorothy is lost. All tell the
truth and it connects them."
Walsh ended her story by
saying freedom is not the
absence of bars but the pre-
sence of God.
Most of those interviewed
said they plan on attending
next year's WOF conference
in Florida. Erika Rowton said
she has gone for four years in
a row.
"When I leave there," she
said, "my relationship with
God is deepened and he is
at the center of everything."

BY TED RANK
STAFF ESCRITOR

Hang on to your sanity,
ladies and gentlemen. It's
time for News from Ecine-
ville.
Wednesday was the first
day of Richa County's new
ordinance restricting peo-
ple from smoking on its
beaches.
As you may recall, the
county set up three desig-
nated smoking areas on
Ecineville Beach.
The three circles are 25
feet in diameter with a pole
in the center. The pole is 10
feet high, brown at the bot-
tom and white in the mid-
dle, and the top has an
orange light. The ciggybutt
pole, as the county is call-
ing it, looks like a giant
burning cigarette.
The perimeter of the cir-
cle has an 18-inch high
fence made of wooden
sticks painted to look like
matches.
Of course, being in
Richa County means there
was a ribbon-cutting cere-
mony at 8 a.m. Wednesday
attended by Richa County
and Ecineville public offi-


cials. They had coffee, tea,
juice, water and those little
mini-bagels with the little
United States flags in them.
After the ceremony, as
the officials were leaving,
the beach began to fill up.
Ecineville Public Informa-
tion Officer Pamela
Anderson was charged
with passing out instruc-
tional pamphlets on the
new smoking restrictions.
It was a beautiful day
and everyone was happy
with the new mandate.
The way the county
envisioned the new ordi-
nance, people would get
up from their chairs or
blankets wherever they
were on the beach, go
stand by the giant ciggy-
butt pole in the circle,
smoke, then return to their
area.
That's not quite exactly
what happened.
After the first seven
groups of smokers came to
the beach to enjoy their
day, the three circles of
smoke were full.
They'd set up their lawn
chairs, umbrellas, grills
and coolers in the circles of
smoke and, as other smok-
ers came over to smoke,


they were being turned
away.
The little circles of
smoke were, ironically, like
little lifeboats of smokers
- lifeboats that were full.
One desperate smoker
refused to be turned away.
He leaped from the little
wall of matches to the cen-
ter pole, climbed to the top
and lit one up.
The smokers in the cir-
cle went nuts and began
pushing on the pole like
Alabama fans knocking
down the goal posts after
they beat Auburn.
The county is estimat-
ing it will take six to eight
weeks and cost $85,612 to
replace all three ciggybutt
poles and the three match
fences that were destroyed
in the Smokers' Riot of
2007.
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, smoke 'erm if
you got 'em here in
Ecineville.

adopted family had to move and the
landlord said no dogs, so Josie finds
herself at the Humane Society of
Sarasota Countty again.Young adults or
families with teens would be the best
match for Josie's new home. Josie is a
friendly, playful girl with lots of affection
to give. She needs to share her life with
a confident, experienced owner, and she
really wants to be the only dog in the
family. Visit the HSSC at 2331 15th St.,

FRIDAY NOV. 23. 2007 SUN NEWSPAPERS 5B


South Venice Expo is coming


ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST

You are probably enjoy-
ing the day after Thanks-
giving, still nibbling on the
turkey leftovers and pie
while making up your


Christmas list.
I love the holidays.
Before you know it, the
year 2007 will turn over and
the new year's first big
attraction will be the South
Venice Beach Expo on Jan.
12. The booths are going
fast and outdoor display
spaces filling up. Many
businesses have already
responded to the ads we are
running in the Venice Gon-
dolier Sun. Here is a sam-
pling of what you will enjoy:
For your home, exhib-
itors include a pool service,
well-drilling and water sys-
tems, garage doors andwin-
dow shutters, air condition-


ing and heating, with a
wonderful display of bath
fitters.
For your financial needs,
we will have commercial
banks and accounting advi-
sors as well as reverse mort-
gage experts and real estate
professionals.
For your health, visit the
fitness exhibit and the hear-
ing center, and get hands-
on experience from the chi-
ropractic experts; also, en-
joy the treats served from
the kitchen thanks to Publix
Super Markets.
Add in boat and automo-
bile displays, retirement
centers, recreation oppor-


tunities through the county
and, finally, funeral home
and burial-planning ser-
vices.
Who are all these busi-
ness people by name? Find
out by attending the Eighth
Annual South Venice Beach
expo next January hosted by
the South Venice Civic
Association.
Exhibitors, there are only
six booths remaining. Call
me at 493-0006 or e-mail
Ellen9@comcast.net.

South Venice Civic Asso-
ciation development direc-
tor.

Regular Screenning Prevents Colorectal Cancer-
Podeast
This four-minute podcast focuses on the prevention of
colorectal cancer and screening. Colorectal cancer is
the second leading cause of cancer death in the United
States. It affects men and women from all racial and
ethnic groups but is most common in people age 50
and older. Colorectal cancer is preventable.
Full-Court Press against Type 2 Diabetes
Using findings from the Diabetes Prevention Program,
NDEP's Small Steps, Big Rewards campaign teaches
that Type 2 diabetes can be prevented by losing a
modest amount of weight, getting 30 minutes of
physical activity 5 days a week, and eating healthier
foods. About 40 percent of adults ages 40 to 74-or
54 million people-have pre-diabetes, a condition that
raises a person's'risk of developing type 2 diabetes,
heart disease, and stroke. African Americans are twice
as likely as whites of similar age to develop diabetes.

Tips for a Healthy Life
Be Smoke-Free
Health concerns associated with smoking include cancer
and lung disease. Smoking triples the risk of dying from
heart disease among those who are middle-aged. Second-
hand smoke smoke that you inhale when others smoke -
also affects your health. If you smoke, quit today!
Helplines, counseling, medications, and other forms of
support are available to help you quit.

Get Routine Exams and Screenings
Sometimes they're once a year. Other times they're more
or less often. Based on your age, health history, lifestyle,
and other important issues, you and your health care
provider can determine how often you need to be
examined and screened for certain diseases and
conditions. These include high blood pressure, high
cholesterol, diabetes, sexually transmitted diseases, and
cancers of the skin, prostate, and colon. When problems
are found early, your chances for treatment and cure are
better. Routine exams and screenings can help save lives.



Get Appropriate Vaccoinations
They're not just for kids. Adults need them too. Some
vaccinations are for everyone. Others are
recommended if you work in certain jobs, have
certain lifestyles, travel to certain places, or have
certain health conditions. Protect yourself from
illness and disease by keeping up with *your
vaccinations.

Manage Stress

Perhaps now more than ever before, job stress poses a
threat to the health of workers and, in turn, to the
health of organizations. Balancing obligations to your
employer and your family can be challenging. What's
your stress level today? Protect your mental and
physical health by engaging in activities that help you
manage your stress at work and at home.
