' Waterford Companies
President Mike Miller pre-
sented revised schematics
at a Venice City Council
workshop Thursday eve-
ning for almost 3 acres on
the Intracoastal Waterway


el.

between Tampa Avenue
and Venice Avenues.
Council members had
questions, but didn't appear
to have any major concerns,
although they were handed
a copy of the new plans only
minutes before the meeting
started.
"My initial impression is


you have addressed all the
concerns of the public,"
said Council Member Vicki
Taylor.
The project bogged
down just before city coun-
cil elections early this
month, a campaign that
turned over three council
seats based on public senti-
ment against tall buildings.
Anticipating the change,
Miller's new plan calls for all
five buildings to be built at a
height of 45 feet defined
as the median height of the


rooftop maintaining
three stories of hotel rooms
over one story of parking.
Ornamental domes and
roof access points bring the
comers of the five buildings
to 58 feet.
Changes
The project maintains a
waterfront restaurant on
the Intracoastal, hotel rooms
that studies have shown are
in short supply in Venice, a
luxury piazza deck with
outdoor bar and a spa, and


access to the Venetian Wa-
terway Park path that runs
the length of "the ditch."
The new plan calls for
228 hotel rooms, down from
the 290 rooms proposed
under the condo-hotel
plan.
A key tradeoff will be the
loss of some of the original-
ly planned retail space.
"We had retail along the
first floor," Miller said. "The
reason we don't have it is ...
it's more important to bring
people into the hotel. The


economics behind the retail
was quite limited."
The new plan maintains
the same number of park-
ing spaces (279) as the orig-
inal plan (of the 9-foot-wide
variety), even though the
revised plan requires 20
percent fewer spaces.
"There were excess spac-
es before. Now that has
grown," saidWaterford Com-
panies attorney Jeff Boone.

Hurricane forecasters miss the mark again


BY MARTIN MERZER
MCCLATCHY
NEWSPAPERS

, Two years ago, way un-
der. Lastyear, way over. This
year, still not right.
It's been a stormy few
years for William Gray,
Philip Klotzbach and other
scientists who predict total
hurricane activity before
each season begins, which
raises fundamental ques-
tions as the 2007 season
draws to an end Friday:
Why do they bother? And
given the errors which
can undermine faith in the
entire hurricane warning:
system are these full-sea-
son forecasts doing more
harm than good? "
"The seasonal hurricane
forecasters certainly have a
lot of explaining to do," said
Max Mayfield, former direc-
tor of the National Hurri-
cane Center.
. "The last couple of years
iave humbled the seasonal
hurricane forecasters and
pointed out that we have a
lot more to learn before we
can do accurate seasonal
forecasts," he said.
The numbers provide
a bundant support for those
statements.
Just before the season
started on June 1, the
nationally prominent Gray-


Klotzbach team at Colorado
State University predicted
'that 17 named storms
would grow into nine hurri-
canes, five of which would
be particularly intense, with
winds above 110 mph.
A different team at the
National Oceanic and At-
mospheric Administration
predicted' 13 to 17 named
storms, seven to 10 hurri-
canes and three to five in-
tense hurricanes.
The actual results for the
2007 season: 14 named
storms, five hurricanes, two
intense hurricanes.
That turned a season
predicted to be, extremely
active into one that was
about average in number of
storms and well below aver-
age in total intensity. .
Real time
The teams defend their
forecasts, saying they are
based on the best science
available, were closer to the
mark in' prior years and
serve an important public
service.
"The seasonal forecasts
are quite good," said Gerry
Bell, NOAA's lead seasonal
forecaster. "Last year, we
over-predicted and this year
we over-predicted, but our
track record, I think, is ex-
cellent."

Ben Bell, Housing and
Urban Development advis-
er to the board of the Venice
Housing Authority, thinks
it's time to ask the city for
help.
At a residents meeting
Wednesday to discuss VHA's
annual plan, he said the city
of Venice has never com-
mitted dollars to the VHA.
"Last time this did not
happen we didn't involve
the city soon enough," he
said.
He said that the board's
liaison from city council
should make a presentation
to the mayor and council for
financial support.
VHA will have to get
money from eyery local,
state and federal agency
and even private industry if
Venice wants to continue to
provide public housing, he
said.
A one-year plan to do
that was presented in Oc-
tober. It calls for the demoli-
tion of Grove Terrace Apart-
ments, establishing a vouch-
er program for displaced
tenants and rebuilding
more housing dnits.
Wednesday's meeting


was held to obtain feedback
from residents about the
plan. Bell said he would col-
lect the resident's concerns
and present them to the
VHA board.
City Council Member
and VHA liaison Sue Lang
asked if a temporary hous-
ing plan had been consid-
ered. She questioned if fam-
ily units could be provided
during the reconstruction
period.
Bell said that vouchers
are temporary housing and'
that he didn't think this type
of housing could be found
in Venice. His concern was.

Cops stay alert for signs of gangs


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
second article in a series on
gangs in Sarasota County.

SBYTOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

By most yardsticks, Sara-
sota County law enforce-
rpent agencies, including
Venice police, are on top of
the gang situation. That is,
police know who the gang-
bangers are, where they are,
what they do and how to
contain them.
"I think we are doing all
-we can," said Sarasota Po-
lice Officer Kim Laster,
"given the resources we
have."
: Laster is head of the
9Ilanasota Gang Task Force
(Manatee and Sarasota
counties).
"There are more
(gangs) now than when I
first started working gangs
two years ago," Laster
said. "There are many in-
didents of graffiti, gang
fights, gang-related crime,
oh, yes."
Laster said the gang

fights are pretty much con-
fined to inter-gang rivalry.
She said the fights could be
over anything from girls to'
territory.
Laster said more could
be done with more re-
sources.
Schools take the lead
Schools having police
officers on campus are the
front line in the battle
against gang proliferation,
according to Lt. Tim Enos,
head of the Sarasota County
Sheriff's school resource
officers.
The SROs are valuable
because they build a trust-
ing relationship with the
students, Enos said.
Laster said she has doc-
umented 350 gang mem-
bers in the four Sarasota
street gangs she is tracking.
She said when she tells
parents their kids are gang
members, the parents tend
to be a little uncooperative
at first.
"Then I show them the
proof," she said, "and they
change their tune and
work with me."

Tell-tale signs
Laster said the age range
for Sarasota street gang-
bangers is 12-25.
Laster advises parents of
kids they suspect are gang-
bangers to look for certain
tell-tale signs.
She said parents should
look in their kids' book bags
to check for peculiar draw-
ings. Laster said gang-
bangers often doodle gang
symbols on books or pa-
pers.
Gangbangers often take
gang-related pictures using
their cell phones.
She also said parents
Sought to look in their kids'
closets for gang-colored ap-
parel, particularly reds and
blues.
Laster and other law
enforcement gang experts
claim that most of the Sara-
sota County gang activity is
in Sarasota simply because
Sarasota is a "big" city.
Gang activity is a direct
function of city size, accord-
ing to experts.

The Southwest Florida

campaign to encourage res-

lawns to skip a week during

According to research by

temperatures grow cooler,
grass doesn't need to be
watered as often. The "skip a

radio and print advertise-
ments to encourage reduce

"The cooler months are a
good time to try to gradual-
ly reduce your irrigation to
train your lawn to need less
water," said Sylvia Durell,
senior communications coo-
rdinator. "Overwatering
makes your lawn less drou-
" ght-tolerant and can encour-
age pests. Using less water
will encourage deeper grass
and plant roots, which
makes them more drought-
tolerant."
Due to below-normal
rainfall and groundwater
conditions, all 16 counties
within the district are under:
"one-day-per-week lawn
watering restrictions.

Straight talk with teens about cybercrime


The attorney general's office sends the cyber
crime unit into Venice High to educate youth
about how to spot Internet predators and pro-
Stect themselves.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The cartoon projected on
the Venice High auditorium
screen drew laughter from a
generation of technically
savvy ninth-graders.
It showed a middle-aged
woman in curfers smoking a
cigarette while surfing on-
2 line. She was talking online
to an older man drinking
booze at his computer. They
were both lying about their
jobs and their age, trying to
impress one another.
Child predators are so
prolific, there are probably
some online right now dis-
guised as 13-year-olds stalk-
ing each other, said Owen
Koehler, a prosecutor with
the Fort Myers office of the
attorney 'general's cyber-


nation provided on their
MySpace Web sites.
It can take law enforce-
menit about 20 minutes to
track down a student using
that information, he said.
"If they can do it," he
said, "then a predator can
do it."
Predators use the same
profile information that
many personalWeb sites, like
MySpace, provide, Koehler
said.
Profiles make it easy to
learn a person's age, location,
sex, favorite movies, even
pasttimes. Often students
put up photos of themselves
and their friends and family.
They talk about where they
go to school, and where
they work.
The online banter often
provides predators with clues

safety program.
Speaking to students at
Venice High School this
-week, Koehler stressed how
easy it is to track down stu-
dents using only the infor-


about vulnerability, like when
someone indicates they're
lonely or just had a fight with
their parents, or where they
plan to meet with a friend
that evening.


GENERAL TIPS FROM MYSPACE
Here are some common sense guidelines that you.
should follow when using MySpace:
Don't forget that your profile and forums are public
spaces. Don't post anything you wouldn't want the world
to know (e.g., your phone number, address, IM screen '
names, or specific whereabouts). Avoid posting anything
6 that would make it easy for a stranger to find you, such as
* where you hang out every day or a picture of you in front
of your office or school.
a People aren't always who they say they are. Be care-
ful about adding strangers to your friends list. Avoid meet-
ing people in person whom you do not fully know.
Harassment, hate speech and inappropriate content
should be reported.
Don't post anything that would embarrass you later.
Think twice before posting a photo or information you
wouldn't want your parents, potential employers, colleges
or boss to see!
Set your profile to private, which lets only your friends
view your profile. Only accept friend invitations from peo-
ple you know and trst.
Don't get hooked by a phishing scam. Phishing is a
method used by fraudsters to try to get your personal
information, such as your username and password, by
pretending to be a site you trust. If you suddenly start
receiving abnormal bulletins or messages from a friend,
they might have been phished. Check with them before
opening any files or clicking on any links. If you think you,
or a friend, are a victim of phishing, change your pass-
word immediately.
from MySpace.com


It's an open invitation for
predators.
They've made the trek
from their home to that of a
youth whose picture they
viewed on MySpace the
same night they first viewed
the Web site, Koehler said.
A wake up call
It was more than relevant
for high school students. It
was a wake-up call.
About a month ago some
voices were raised by upset
girls in the school cafeteria,
said Vice Principal Mike
Jennings.
They had been the sub-


ject of a MySpaceVenice High
gossip Web site that or-
iginated from Ohio while
being fed information from
Venice, he said.
Parents were notified and
the students involved were
spoken to about cyber bully-
ing.
The cybersafety presenta-
tion went a step further, giv-
ing real-life examples of girls
and boys who made a con-
nection online, then ran
away with the perpetrator,
and eventually were physi-
cally abused.

The state will not prose-
cute a Venice police officer
who accidentally shot his
little boy while cleaning his
gun. However, he could face
,disciplinary action follow-
ing an internal administra-
tive investigation by the
Venice Police Department.
According to a Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office in-
vestigation, Billy Masters,
44, was cleaning his Glock
23 semi-automatic .40 cal-
iber duty pistol at the VPD
'range Nov. 21.
"During the interview,
Masters said that he had
forgotten he had a loaded
Magazine in his weapon,"
Wrote Sarasota County Sher-
tiff's Detective J. Klay in the
osix-page investigative re-
port.
o The pistol went off as
'Masters was taking it apart
Sfor cleaning.
"He pulled the slide back
and pulled the trigger to
release the inner trigger-
"spring tension as is required
.to disassemble a Glock pis-
'tol," Klay wrote in his report.
"Nothing happened, so he
let the slide go forward and
the weapon discharged."
Klay stated the gun
-would fire if the shooter still
:had the trigger depressed.
Proper gun-cleaning pro-
*cedures are drilled into all
police officers from their ac-
ademy days and throughout
their careers by range offi-
cers. The sheriff's reports
stops short of stating that
Masters failed to follow

Sarasota County Commission

rejects fertilizer compact for now


The Sarasota County Commission narrowly
rejected the latest offer by phosphate mining
company Mosaic in a protracted four-hour
meeting Tuesday at the Robert L. Anderson
Administration Center in South Venice.


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County
Commission rejected Tues-
day's offer by phosphate
mining company Mosaic to
forge an agreement that
would allow them to mine
near the Peace River but
left the door open to re-
newed negotiations.
Cotinty Commissioners
Shannon Staub and Paul
Mercier voted for the agree-
ment; Commissioners Joe
Barbetta, Jon Thaxton and
Nora Patterson voted ag-
ainst it.
The narrow 3-2 vote left
plenty of room for conjec-
ture that Patterson might
change her vote should
Mosaic address two of her
concerns.
Patterson was appre-
hensive that lands current-
ly owned by people not
leasing property for phos-
phate mining might one
day be sold to people who
would. Her other concern
centered on the agree-
ment's insistence that the
commissioners could not
formally comment to the
Department of Environ-
mental Protection and the
Army Corps of Engineers
about mining.issues.
"Mosaic has to come up
with a way where this
agreement has teeth and
meaning and the land that
has to be preserved is pre-
served from mining,"
Patterson said. "I also don't
want to give up the ability
to comment."
No firm time frame was
given for the next meeting
with Mosaic.
"It's p to them," Patt-
erson said.

A voice
Mosaic's offer asserted
the company would take


extra steps to mitigate its
impacts on the flow of the
Peace River. The proposed
agreement also outlined a
site for a 6.5-billion-gallon
reservoir to be provided at
no charge. Monitoring of
water quality would also
take place.
In, addition, if any health
and safety issues arise, an
immediate injunction
could be sought to stop
mining. Mosaic also agreed
to protect about 20 creek
areas.
In exchange, local gov-
ernments would agree not
to litigate or oppose Mos-
aic's operations, unless
such legal action was need-
ed to protect citizens ag-
ainst an "imminent, seri-
ous threat to their health,
safety and welfare."
The .four-hour public
hearing at the Robert L.
Anderson Administration
Center featured a lot of dis-
approval of the agreement
from local residents and
environmentalists, along
with presentations from
Charlotte County's special
phosphate attorney, Ed de
la Parte, Peace River Water
Supply Authority Attorney
Doug Manson and Richard
L. Mack, senior vice presi-
dent and general counsel
for Mosaic.
Manson and Mack
stressed what they called
improvements to the set-
tlement that had been
made over weeks of talks.
"This agreement gives
local county governments a
voice throughout the entire
process," Mack said, "not
only with respect to per-
mitting itself, but the mon- .
.itoring and stewardship of
'the Peace- -River, the ,-
Myakka River, the reservoir,
hundred-year flood plain
protection a lot of addi-
tional commitments that a

lot of local county govern-
ments simply don't have
today"

Two to go
De la Parte warned the
proposed 15-year term of
the agreement Was not long
enough; that it should be
extended to 30 years.
"The benefit of your bar-
gain isn't really going to be
obtained until the 15th,
20th and 30th year of this
agreement," he said.
The Charlotte County
Commission recently voted
4-1 to approve the com-
pact; however, the agree-
ment requires acceptance
by four governing bodies.
Lee County and the Peace
River-Manasota Regional
Water Supply Authority
have not yet voted on the
settlement.
Although the contract's
terms.require all parties to
approve it, the terms could
change should Mosaic
agree to accept fewer than
all four.
The water authority will
look at the agreement Dec.
5 and Lee County will hold
a meeting in December or
January.

HOTEL from Page 1A
tion approved by the plan-
ning commission was to
build five condo-hotel
buildings, four of them at
six stories, with a waterfront
building at four stories that
was 70 feet tall.
The new plan calls for
four stories for each of the
five buildings, reducing the
overall building height by 22
feet.
Time line
The original concept for
a condo-hotel also raised
concerns about regulating
the project to ensure that it
operates as a hotel and not a
condo.
Miller addressed that by
eliminating the condomini-
um component and turning
the project into a true hotel.
Miller said he doesn't
have a commitment yet, but
has met with representa-
tives of Hilton, Marriott and
Indigo hotels.
"At one point we were
considering selling the
property," Miller said. "At
this point, we do intend to


keep (it) and have an opera-
tor. It will definitely be a
franchise hotel."
If the project's rezoning
application is approved in
January, site plans could be
presented to the Venice
Planning Commission as
soon as February.
"Our goal have the first
two (eastern) buildings
done by December 2008,"
Miller said.
The remaining buildings
would be completed a year
later, with total build-out by
the winter of 2010.
Council remarks indicat-
ed a desire to move the pro-
ject along in a timely man-
ner.
With the key issues
addressed, council mem-
bers were left to haggle over
employee parking and the
covered walkways, issues
Miller said could be
addressed.
A second workshop on
Tra Ponti is scheduled for
Dec. 7 at 9 a.m. in council
chambers.

OUR VIEW



'Green' movement is in the pink here


Here's an awkward word for a sim-
ple concept: sustainability.
It's a mouthful, the kind of word
that comes from the mouths of
bureaucrats.
There's a simpler word: green. But that
limits the idea to environmental systems
and makes it sound a bit flower-powery
for some people.
It's too bad. Sustainability or what-
ever you invent to call it is the key to a
healthy future. In essence, it is the ability
of societies to develop and grow in ways
that can be maintained, or even en-
hanced, in many years to come.
Sustainability has become the buzz-
word from California to Florida. This is
because the basic concepts address prob-
lems ,that are overwhelming the fastest-
growing regions of our country.


One example of this was a recent
roundtable discussion on "The News
Hour With Jim Lehrer" on PBS with offi-
cials, business people and citizens in Las
Vegas discussing growth issues in that
desert city. As population and businesses
grew, where would the water come from?
The electricity? How could they avoid
road congestion? What about air pollu-
tion? How to ensure that prosperity
desired by all didn't lead to a stifling mess
someday?
In Florida, Sarasota County has been
ahead of the sustainability curve in many
ways, passing environmentally friendly
fertilizing rules, supporting the preserva-
tion of environmentally sensitive land
programs, revising urban tree canopy
standards, encouraging the development
of local "green" business, building "green"
<**


county buildings, buying hybrid buses
and setting'a course for carbon-neutral
emissions for the county fleet.
More and more, the concept of sus-
tainability is being embraced by a larger
public.
"We now see on a state level that hav-
ing as a top political agenda the envi-
ronment is not only acceptable but
preferable," Commissioner Jon Thaxton
said at a ceremony last week at which
county officials and Gov. Charlie Crist
congratulated themselves on "green"
initiatives.
It was noted more than once that
Thaxton himself had been out alone on a
strong environmental limb for years.
Commissioner Shannon Staub is known
as "the queen of green." And Crist was
applauded for statewide initiatives to cut


greenhouse gas emissions in vehicles and
power plants.
There's every reason to believe this
momentum will be sustained. In the past
decade, environmental and sustainability
issues have been grasped by the Dem-
ocratic Party, but Crist and the Sarasota
County commissioners are all Repub-
licans, so the bipartisan appeal is begin-
ning to take hold across the political spec-
trum.
In regions struggling with growing
pains, more people will want to be
assured that their communities can grow
and prosper in a manner that will not use
up limited resources or destroy a desir-
able quality of life.
Sarasota County has been near the
front of the wave, and can only benefit
from continued focus on the issue.

MARY KAY RUPPEL
COLUMNIST


When I graduated from
high school, my father com-
mented that with my' poor
math skills it would be diffi-
cult for me to get a job in a
dime store because I could-
n't make change. ..J AI i,
He added that the only
skills he'd noticed my
acquiring were dialing the
phone and turning on the
television.
Boy, did I get even with
him. I didn't get job. I went
to college and studied jour-
nalism.
Well, I still can't make
change without a pocket
calculator, but boy, do I love
to work puzzles and take
quizzes. They're very tricky.
A recent quiz on famous
quotations was just too
tempting for me to pass up,
and I'd like to share it with
you. The quiz was format-
ted in "multiple choice" and
"none of the above," which I
condensed with my answer
and the correct answer.
Here goes:
"We're going to take
things away from you on
behalf of the common
good."
Karl Marx? Answer: Hil-
lary Clinton
"We are not retreating;
we are advancing in anoth-
er direction."

raeus? Answer: General
Douglas MacArthur.

didn't like."

enemy when he is making a
mistake."

swer. Abraham Lincoln
Never give a sucker an
even break!
Donald Trump? Answer:
PT. Barnum
"How can I lose to such
an idiot?"
Al Gore? Answer: Aaron
Nimzovich, chess master
"I have never let my
'schooling interfere with my
education."
President George Bush?
Answer: Mark Twain
"You're not very smart. I
like that in a man."
Laura Bush? Answer: It's
a line from the movie "Body
Heat"
"I am not a member of
any organized political
party; I am a Democrat."
Nancy Pelosi? Answer:
Will Rogers
"I certainly think the
free-market has failed."
Hugo Chavez? Answer:
Hillary Clinton
'"A man can sleep around
all he wants; but if a woman
makes 19 or 20 mistakes,
she's a tramp."
Paris Hilton? Answer:
Joan Rivers
"The evil of the world is
made possible by nothing
but the sanction you give
it."

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

Help your family and one more this holiday season


Editor:
This upcoming holiday season more than 600 Sarasota
families from North County to South County need to be
adopted.
Simply call 955-6767 and adopt a family at risk that is just
barely getting by, so that they too can enjoy the warmth and
happiness that only the holidays can bring. Instead of just
buying gifts for your loved ones, how about buying a simple
gift for a family at risk that just wants some help, not chari-
ty?
Please look into yourself and find the urgency to help
Sarasota Adopt A Family. Also, if you have holiday decora-
tions, canned food, kitchenware, household items or elec-
tronics, all in excellent shape, as well as gift cards, please
drop them off at 4858 South Tamiami Trail, in the Landings
Shopping Center, Sarasota.
Due to the local economy facing challenging times, this
holiday season is of exceptional concern to Sarasota Adopt
A Family. We hope so many who have so much will help
those families who have so little.
It is a wonderful life and can be for those families who
are just trying to survive. Thank you for your kindness.

Help put an end to
'mini-motels'

Editor:
A very important deci-
sion about short-term
rentals in residential neigh-
borhoods will be made at
the Dec. 11 meeting of Ven-
ice City Council.
It is important that peo-
ple who are concerned with
or affected by these rentals
come to the meeting to
encourage council mem-
bers to put a stop to the
business of "mini-motels"
in our neighborhoods. It has
recently been demonstrat-
ed that council is very influ-
enced when citizens appear
who oppose activities in our
town.
For those who may not
be aware, a company nam-
ed VacationRentalPros has


purchased more than 20
houses in Venice and is
making these repeatedly
available for rent by the day,
week or month. Some of the
houses have been modified
(e.g., garages and sheds
turned into bedrooms) to
accommodate as many
people as possible. One
house, originally a three-
bedroom structure with a
living area of 2,100 square
feet, was changed to what is
now advertised as a six-bed-
room facility with 3.600
square feet.
If this type of rental of
residential property is al-
lowed, you can say goodbye
to the neighborhood atmos-
phere that helps make
Venice the town that it is.
Come to the Venice City
Council meeting Dec. 11
and help stop "mini-motel"

Human error, not
gun, to blame
Editor:
Tommy McIntyre's article
about Venice Police Officer
Billy Masters' accidental
shooting of his stepson, Jar-
ydWebber, at the Venice Po-
lice Department gun range,
was biased.
The mention of the Con-
sumer Federation of Amer-
ica's lawsuit against Glock is
irrelevant to this story, and
is an attempt to paint
Glocks as unsafe. They are a
safe, well-designed marvel
of engineering. The only
way you can get a Glock to
fire is to pull the trigger, and
even then you must pull it
straight back while holding
the gun correctly, as it is
meant to be held.
While I respect and ap-
preciate Officer Masters'
dedication to serving the
Venice community, he must
have failed to follow the cor-
rect procedure for disas-
sembling any semiauto-
matic pistol: (1) remove the
magazine; (2) rack the slide

disassemble the firearm.

Painting with too
broad a brush
Editor:
In reference to a recent
North Port resident's letter
regarding someone refer-
ring to Hillary Clinton with
the "b" word, I have a ques-
tion: For all you good Chris-
tian Democrats to think one
(assumed) Republican
speaks for all Republicans is
absolutely ridiculous!
Just because one Dem-
ocrat squirreled away thou-
sands of questionable dol-
lars in his freezer, does that
mean all Democrats are
likely thieves? Or because
one Democrat is gay, does
that mean all are? Or just
because one Democrat is a
user of illegal drugs, does
that mean all are? And when
one Democrat is disrespect-
ful to our president, does
that mean all must follow
suit?
Please use common sense
when thinking along these
lines. I can forgive someone
once for their obvious igno-
rance, but beyond that, you
can't help but wonder if they
ever use logic.

Have you read your cell phone's fine print?


SBY JOHN BURTON
,GUEST COLUMNIST

Some of you may be fa-
miliar with the contents of
your cellular telephone
agreement, but provisions
in these agreements might
surprise many of you.
Did you know that most
agreements bar you from
court if you have a dispute
with your carrier that you
must submit to arbitration
conducted through your
carrier? Did you also know
that you must pay part of
the cost of such arbitration?
Did you know that most
companies charge you a
penalty for each line you
drop once you sign an
agreement with them? Did
you know that the penalty
charged by most companies
is in the range of $200, and
is reduced by only $5 per
month for each month you
'honor the agreement?
Did you know that your


agreement is likely to "roll
over," obligating you to an-
other two years unless you
take positive timely action
to end it?
Did ydu know that you
are charged for a full minute
for any part of a minute you
spend on the cell phone?
Did you know that this re-
sults on average of a charge
for double the time you
actually use?
Did you know that a cell
phone purchased in con-
nection with a plan from one
cellular company cannot be
used with the plan for
another cellular company?
The explanation is that each
company has proprietary
software in the telephones it
supplies, and the software
cannot be replaced.
Did you know that taxes
and hidden cell company
fees usually add from 20 to
30 percent to the bill? You
will never pay the adver-
tised price. If you bought a


plan advertised at $49.99
per month, your lowest bill,
even if you make little or no
use of your cell phone, will
be $60 or more.
Let's summarize:
You can't sue them.
You pay part of the arbi-
tration costs.
You pay a substantial
penalty to drop a line.
Unless you take positive
action, your agreement may
"roll over," obligating you to
further restrictions and
penalties.
You pay a full minute of
time no matter how small
the portion of the minute
used. This may result in 100
percent overbilling.
A phone purchased in
connection with one cellular
carrier cannot be used with
another cellular carrier.
Hidden fees and taxes
add up to 30 percent to the
bill.

ications Commission and

Businesses in transition may get makeover


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

There is a plan in the
works, sponsored by Venice
MainStreet to beautify
shops on West Venice, West
Miami and South Nokomis
avenues that are "in transi-
tion."
An idea has emerged
from the design committee
of Venice MainStreet that
may replace the brown
paper covering windows of
stores that either have clos-
ed, remodeled or moved.
KC Quaretti-Lee, VMS
executive director, has pro-
posed that banners with
pictures of Venice replace
the paper.
Photographs of down-
town landmarks such as the
children's fountain in Cen-
tennial Park or the gateway
arch would be duplicated
on 6-foot by-8 foot banners,
then placed in the windows.
Quaretti-Lee said that
tourists and residents react
negatively if they see empty
shops.
"When a comment was
made about all of the stores
on Miami Avenue that are
going out of business, we
knew we had to do some-


thing," she said.
Just because stores own-
ers are in the process of get-
ting permits or having re-
modeling done doesn't
mean that things are in a
downturn she said.
"Business is actually
good," she said.
There is only one store
on West Miami Avenue for
rent, and a few on West
Venice Avenue. The rest
have been rented and are
awaiting their new tenants,
said Quaretti-Lee.
She used the Cat's Meow
as an example of a store that
has done a good job of dec-
orating the windows and
keeping the public inform-
ed.
"Those merchants that
don't have pictures or items
to put in the windows just
cover them with brown
paper," she said.
Soon to open
James Lotz is waiting for
deliveries to arrive for his
new store, Venice Garden
Works, 207 Miami Ave.
"I think we will be in
business by next week,"
Lotz said.
He put up brown paper
because vendors had not


shipped in enough mer-

World's first wine and wash combo?


MRT expands northward


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

An express five-10
minute car wash with free
vacuuming came to Venice
recently at the newly reno-
vated Top Notch Express
Car Wash & Detail, 365
North U.S. 41 Bypass.
Next will be a possible
world debut when Top
Notch Wine and Spirits
Discount liquor opens at
the location. Drivers will be
able to drive up to purchase
liquor, wine and beer, then
get an express car wash and
detailing.
"Here in Venice, this will
probably be the first in the
world combination wash,
detail and liquor store," said
owner Matthew Setter.
In August he bought back
the car wash business he
had sold nine months earli-
er. With eight years' experi-
ence, he researched new
systems, then opted to
invest $200,000 in state-of-
the-art equipment for the
Venice business. At the time
he was operating his dis-
count liquor store in North
Port.


Top Notch Express uti-
lizes the latest computer-
ized equipment within, the
enlarged 160-foot tunnel,
which is capable of han-
dling almost 200 cars
hourly.
"This is the new wave of
the future in car washing,"
said Setter. "There is noth-
ing like it in the area. An
express system provides a
clean, shiny and dry finish
within minutes at competi-
tive pricing."
One-stop service
Drivers pull up to express
pay stations similar to ATMs
and a welcoming lady's
voice asks what services
they require. Those in a
hurry choose express ser-
vice, pull up to the terminal
pay station and offer a cred-
it or debit card, cash or
soon-to-be available Top
Notch Fast Card.
One attendant preps the
car quickly, sending driver
and vehicle down the track.
In the tunnel, very light
touch high-pressure water
spray units begin the clean-
ing process with foaming
wraps. Top brushes, wheel


blasters and on-line tire
shining units complete the
service before 105-horse-
power blowers finish the
drying.
An option is a Rain-ex
application, reducing fog on
windows and windshield
and making rainwater just
bead off.
Exiting the tunnel, dri-
vers have the option to stop
and vacuum for free, or take
the express detailing ser-
vice.
"It's the second-largest
track in Florida, so we can
process a lot of cars," said
Setter. "I know I can process
almost 200 cars an hour and
that would be unbelievable
in Venice."
Setter is hoping to open
his discount liquor store
with a drive-through facility
in three to four weeks. He
intends to hold wine and
liquor tasting events.
"Potentially, you will be
able to drive up, get your
bottle of wine, go through
the car wash and never have
to get out of your car," said
Setter.

A local business success story is the
growth of MRT Lawn & Garden Center, 5175
Englewood Road, Venice, during the past
four years.
David and Elizabeth Taylor acquired the
former garden center, transforming it into
the leading independent landscaping and
retail garden center business in the area.
For almost one and a half years they have
been looking to expand their retail business
and recently found the opportunity when
Sarasota investor Marvin Kaplan acquired a
former feed store on State Road 64 in Bra-
denton for $3.5 million.
The Taylors have leased the 7-acre prop-
erty, 5904 East State Road 64, to open a large
MRT Lawn & Garden Center.


Within the 14,000-square-foot building
they will offer a comprehensive range of
patio items, including pottery, furniture,
fountains and plants. In addition, they are
introducing a range of livestock feed to
serve the local horse farm community.
"There is a lot of growth potential in that
area," said Charles Hines, attorney for MRT.
In order to have sufficient warehouse
space and take the business to a higher
level, the Taylors acquired property in the
Sarasota County Interstate Business Center,
at the Jacaranda Boulevard Interstate 75
interchange.
With three levels, they have the company
corporate offices and storage for inventory
for wholesaling to garden centers through-
out Florida and East Coast states.

Make thousands of

dollars working at home


BY KEN KLEINLEIN
CRIME SCENE
COLUMNIST


A number of readers
have contacted me report-
ing questionable tactics
used by work at-home com-
panies attempting to recruit
them.
Recently I received an e-
mail from such a group that
stated in part: sign up with
us and you are guaranteed
to make more than $10,000
in the first month. That
sounded too good to be
true, so I contacted an in-
vestigator in the Florida
Attorney General's Office
and received the following
'information.
'"Attorney General Bill
McCollum and Florida De-
partment of Agriculture and
Consumer Services Com-
missioner Charles H. Bron-
son issued a consumer advi-
sory about work-at-home
scams. The advisory partic-
ularly targeted envelope-
stuffing 'opportunities' and
expressed concern that
many of the schemes were
taking advantage of citizens.
"The AG's \office has
received hundreds of com-
plaints about work-at-home
programs, most from con-
sumers claiming they paid a
fee but never received the
wages they were promised.
"Even worse, many of
these operations are target-
ing citizens by advertising in
another language, but print-
ing disclaimers in English,
thus confusing or.mislead-
ing the interested con-
sumers. We want to make
sure that Floridians know
where they can receive
assistance if they have been
victimized by these decep-
tive practices."
Bronson echoed the at-
torney general's concerns,
saying: "Our citizens are
being duped into laying out
money with- promises -of-
returns 'that are rarely real-
ized. These scams typically
target those who can least
afford to lose anything."
Earlier this month, the
Federal Trade Commission
announced a widespread
review of work-at-home ads
and revealed that nearly 60
percent of work-at-home
opportunities and similar
ads were potentially decep-
tive and fraudulent adver-
tising claims.
According to the com-
plaints received by the fraud
hotline, many complain-
ants indicated they had paid
a $45 "registration deposit"
to various companies but
never heard from them
again. Other consumers re-
ported they had, been told
the only way to earn the
promised money was to
replicate the fraudulent
envelope-stuffing scheme
by making the same false
claims to other consumers
in what would appear to be
a pyramid scheme.


People who believe they
have been victimized can
contact state authorities to
report fraud. The attorney
general's fraud hotline is
(866) 966-7226; complaints
can also be filed online at
www.myfloridalegal.com.
The fraud hotline for the
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services is
(800) 435-7352 and its Web
site, where complaints can
be filed, is www.800help
fla.com.
Complaints can also be
filed with the FTC by calling
(877) 382-4357 or by writing
to: Consumer Response
Center, Fe'deral Trade Com-
mission, Room 130, 600
Pennsylvania Ave. N.W.,
Washington, D.C. 20580.
Fine police work
Using surveillance cam-
era evidence, the Sarasota
County Sheriffs Office re-
cently arrested John Vargas,
39, and Jill Melmed, 36, and
charged them with robbing
the purse of a female shop-
per in the Venice Wal-Mart
after threatening her with a
handgun.
Be careful when you
shop during the Christmas
holiday season.
Sad notes
The Manasota 10-13 Pol-
ice Officers Club lost a
much-loved former presi-
dent when retired NYPD
detective Nicky Mattera
passed suddenly. Former
NYPD detective and past
president of the Brooklyn/
Staten Island 10-13 Club,
Bill (Billy) McNeely, also
stood his last roll call recent-
ly.
They were both out-
standing police officers,
stand-up guys and good
friends of mine. They will be
sorely missed by all who
knew them.

Indians beat Bayshore in season opener


BYTRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


The Venice High School
wrestling team rolled out
the mats in the Teepee for
the first time this season
Wednesday. They put Bay-
shore High School down on
them not long after.
The match was closer
than Venice's 51-12 blowout
of the Bruins in the Bay-
shore Classic this presea-
son. The Bruins showed imui-
provement,Athanks to some
new acquisitions after the
end of football season, but
the Indians prevailed once
again 36-31 to advance to 1-
0 on the season.
You knew this one would
be different after Bayshore's
Nicholas Alvarez defeated
Venice freshman Frank Tri-
gg by a technical fall in the
140-pound class first mat-
ch. But pins by juniors Alex
Hanson and Billy Field in


the 145- and 152-pound
classes gave Venice a 12-5
lead.
Bayshore retook the lead
at 17-16 when Nathan Mes-
chelle pinned Venice junior
Spencer Hartwell and Ethan
Shelm pinned Venice fresh-
man Eric Medul in the 160-
and 171-pound classes.
Another Venice pin by
senior Lewis White in the
189-pound class gave the
Indians the lead once again
at 18-7. They would not re-
linquish it.
Venice extended its lead
out to 31-17 after three con-
secutive wins. In the 215-
pound class, senior Ted
Stahula claimed a six-point
Venice victory by pinning
Richard Carl. In the heavy-
weight class, sophomore
Devon Balsinger outlasted
Nephi Solorano for a 4-2 de-
cision, adding another three
points for the Indians. Back
down to the lightweights,


Venice sophomore Colton
Schuchert added four Ven-
ice points by defeating
Manuel Lynch in a 16-6
major decision in the 112-
pound class.
Just when the match was
beginning to look one-sided,
the Bruins battled back with
a 15-0 technical fall by
William Silver over Venice
freshman Brian Clark in the
119-pound class. Following
that, Mathew Orzech pinn-
edVenice senior Casey Hay-
es in the 125-pound class.
With the score within three,
it was time for the most-
anticipated match of the
night.
Last year's fourth-place
state finisher, senior Wade
Consul ofVenice, took to the
mat to face another state
qualifier in Bayshore's Dan-

class. Consul couldn't put
Barlay on his back, but he
was able to defeat him by a


technical fall to give Venice
five points and put the
match out of reach.
Bayshore's Marshal Green
defeated Andrew Lopez by
an 8-7 decision, but Venice
had already clinched the
match.
With the loss, Bayshore
falls to 4-4.
Next up for Venice is the
East Lake Tournament Fri-

rings. The tournament will
feature 22 teams from all
over the state, including
area rivals North Port and
Sarasota high schools.
"We usually do pretty
good at it," Consul said. "I
like it because it introduces
us to the good, better kids
that are going to be at state.
It shows what Ihave to work
on if I lose and if I win, what
to keep doing."

Indians struggle, but blow


out Cardinal Mooney


BYTRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


Venice High School boys
basketball Head Coach
Steve Cavallaro is not happy
with his team.
They played average
defense and they rebound-
ed "horribly.-"But the In-
dians beat Cardinal Moon-
ey High School 62-35 Thurs-
day. night on the road to
advance to 3-0 on the sea-
sonl. "
S- "I don't think the score
was an indication of the way
we played," Cavallaro said.
"Defensively, I thought we
played OK, but they missed
a lot of easy shots."
The leading rebounder
for Venice was Trey Burton


with just four. The Indians
gave Cardinal Mooney
plenty of chances.
"We gave up too many
offensive rebounds," Caval-
laro said. "We gave them too
many chances and they just
let us off the hook on a few
of them."
Offensively, the Indians
didn't let Cardinal Mooney
off the hook. Justin Grant
led Venice with 16 points,
followed by Branden Wilk-
inson with 12 and Trey Burt-
on and Kyle Jutras each with
seven.
"We .played well in
stretches," Cavallaro said.,
"But we have a lot more
work to do."
With a district game
against Charlotte High


School Dec. 7 and a road
game with Port Charlotte
High School Dec. 12, Venice
doesn't have a lot of time to
correct its problems. Of
course, they have more time
than they've had so far.
Up until this point, the
Indians have practiced just
six times as a full team
thanks to some players also
being members of the foot-
ball team.
"We haven't developed
good habits. It takes six
weeks to develop [any]
"habits, we'velhad six days of
practice," Cavallaro said.'
The Indians' Dec. 7 game
with Charlotte will be in the
Teepee at 7:30 p.m.

Lady Indians fall to .500 at Lakewood Ranch


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High School
girls basketball team has
shown a very important
weakness in the six games
they've played so far. They
just don't shoot the ball very
well.
The Indians shot just
31.8 percent from the field
in a 46-44 loss to Lakewood
Ranch High School on the
road Thursday night. The
Indians had trouble getting
the ball inside against a
zone defense, and when
they did, they missed
shots.
"We're going to see a lot
of that because teams are
going to play a zone against
us," Head Coach Bruce
Reichenbach said.
The Indians had a
chance with five seconds in


the fourth quarter to either
go for the tie and force over-
time or shoot the three
pointer and go for the win.
Reichenbach called a time-
out to draw up a play and
when Venice took the court,
they went for the win.
Lauren Ramey pulled up
for the buzzer-beating,
three-point jumper, but it
wasr too strong and the
Indians fell short.
"I think on the road, you
go for the win," Reichebach
said.
Ramey finished the game
with a team-high 12 points,
followed by Diana Mehserle
with 11.
Kaylee Ream,: one of the
team's leading scorers and
rebounders, struggle to get
any presence inside. She
finished the game just two
of nine.
"We're just not getting


inside shots," Reichebach
said. "Usually we try to get
the ball inside to open up
the outside [but we didn't
do that.]"
Defensively, the Indians
played pretty well and
Venice even outscored the
Mustangs in the second half
29-23.
"We didn't do "bad on
defense. When you hold a
team to 26 points you're
going to win a lot of games,"
Reichenbach said. "We're
getting better, there's no
panic on my part or on the
girls'. We know what we can
do, we just have to get bet-
ter."
Next up for the Indians is
a road game with Southeast
High School at 7:30 p.m.
Dec. 3.

signing

Author Phil Brooks will
be at the Venice Books-A-
Million Dec. 1 from 1-4
p.m. for a book signing pro-
moting his book, "Forward
Pass: the Play that Saved
Football."
Brooks, a 45-year foot-

retired after being inducted
into the Michigan High
School Football Coaches
Hall of Fame in 2004. After
tftat; he began research for
his book. "Forward Pass"

Venice Head Coach Seth
Jones said. "We asked these
guys to step up and they
came through."
Jones added that Venice
has not played a Lakewood
Ranch team this close in
quite a while.
"Lakewood Ranch al-
ways has a very good team,"
he said. "It's been a long
time since we've tied Lake-
wood Ranch, let alone beat
them."
Venice is now 1-1-1 in its
first three games of the sea-
son. All were district games.
The Mustangs got on the
board first with about eight
minutes to play in the first
half. It was the only goal
that keeper Jason Maddams
gave up.,
"Super game by Jason
Maddams," Jones said.
Maddams finished the


tional stages from a danger-
ous 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 fiPm 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 Uni-
versity coach Eddie Coch-.
ems, transformed football
from a deadly game in which


game with four saves on the
night. He also had one carry.
When Mark Faroudi hit the
turf with a cramp in his left
leg, Maddams ran three
quarters of the way down-
field to pick him up and
carry him off to allow more
time for Venice to go for the
win.
With the help of solid
defense, the Indians hung
around within one point
until there were about nine
minutes left in the game. At
that point, Nate Leveine
scored on an open net to tie
the game at 1-1.
Next up for Venice is a
home game with Charlotte
Dec. 3 at 8 p.m. It will be
their fourth consecutive

STORY AND PHOTOS

FEATURES EDITOR


railroad lore, home-
town Americana and
Venice history are as
close as the Venice train
depot
Tour on your own, read-
ing the plaques put there by
the county and the Bro-
therhood of Locomotive En-
gineers or join a group led by
a Depot Docent, one of sev-
eral trained volunteers who
give regular tours of the
depot and its historic site.
During the season, tours
are held each Monday, Wed-
nesday and Friday, 10 a.m.-
2 p.m. From May through
October, tours are offered
Wednesday mornings only.
Built in 1926, the depot
brought potential home-
buyers to Venice, the John
Nolen-designed communi-
ty being developed and sold
by the Brotherhood of Loc-
omotive Engineers. The
BLE was the largest union
in the United States in those
days, with some $90 million
in assets. The brotherhood
had purchased Venice and
the Nolen plan from Dr. Fred
Albee as an investment for
its pension fund. Florida
land sales were booming in
those days and with three
hotels to house potential
buyers and the Seaboard
Airline Railroad to bring
buyers to town, things were
looking good.
There was regular service
to big cities like Philadel-
phia and New York and
trunk lines brought passen-
gers into Tampa and Sara-
sota and then on to Venice
from the Midwest and other
places.
Fresh produce came to the
growing city by train and so
did lumber and other build-
ing supplies. There was no
Intracoastal Waterway and
the depot was just off Venice
Avenue, then and now, the
city's main thoroughfare.
The population of Venice
grew to some 4,000 people.
Stillness In the air
Three years later, the
Great Depression loieiwd,
The Florida land boom
ended. Almost iv'rriihli,
Veliciu had become a 0hirini


town and the depot activity
dwindled. There were just
400 residents in Venice and
even less ,to the south in
Englewood.
While the depot was no
longer buzzing with activity,
train service remained and
would be one of the reasons
for the rebirth of the city two
years later.
The other was the exis-
tence of those three hotels.
When members of the
Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce learned that the
Kentucky Military Institute
was looking for a new home,
they invited KMI's com-
mander, Col. C. B. Richmond,
to Venice.
"Things were so bad that
you could rent a new house
inVenice for $5 a month and
some people could not afford
that," KMI alumnus Sidney
Eline, class of 1962, said.
Venice was a town that was
built overnight and almost
disappeared overnight"
Eline spoke to me at a KMI
reunion year ago inVenice.
Richmond liked what he
found in 1932 and signed a
seven-year lease on the emp-
ty Hotel Venice (now Sum-
merville Retirement Center)
and the former San Marco
Hotel (now Venice Centre
Mall). .The first building
housed faculty and classes.
The second building housed
students. Also leased was the
Haney Garage, which was
used as a gymnasium and
armory. Today that building
houses the Venice Little
Theatre. Three companies of
military students and a band,
plus faculty and staff arrived
at the depot just after
Christmas in 1932. The
school purchased the leased
buildings for $40,000 in 1939.
As the years progressed
and the school grew, so did
Venice. Depot activity picked
up. Staff would arrive in
December and students right
after Christmas. Parents and
other relatives visited during
the winter and Venice began
tO Iri,)'ii as the country

When the Japanese bom-
bed Pearl Harbor, drawing
the country into World War
II, the United States Gov-
ernment looked to Florida
as a place to establish pilot
training centers. The Albee
field, which was just south
of the depot, on land now
used by the Venice Gondolier
Sun and the Venice Elem-
entary and High schools,
was too small for the task.
The government acquired
some 1,100 acres south of
the area platted on the
Nolen plan and established
the Venice Army Air Base.
The depot was once
again a thriving site with
military trains and equip-
ment arriving daily in addi-
tion to the KMI students
and their parents and even
a few more visitors.
Golden era
of railroads
Gas rationing and other
cutbacks brought about by
the war effort benefited rail-
roads which transported
goods and personnel during
the war and were about the
only way for civilians to get
from town to town.When the
war ended, trains remained
the choice for long-distance
transportation, at least until
Detroit started rolling out
private cars again instead of
tanks.
The population of Venice
decreased again when army
personnel left town but
another population spurt
was in the offing. In 1950,
according to the U.S. cen-
sus, the Venice population
was just under 1,000.
Not only were KMI grad-
uates coming to Venice to
retire or to purchase a sec-
ond home, so were many of
those who had been sta-
tioned in Venice during the
war years.
South Venice was platted
with 50-foot lots selling for
$100 or less and the first
model homes for Venice
Gardens were built on Cen-
ter Road, east of U.S. 41.
There still was no Intra-
coastal Waterway and no
need for a U.S. 41 bypass.
That would come in 1967
when the waterway finally
was oimlplet(ld, making an
Island of Venice, with the
depot off fliv island.


Life's a circus
In the interim, the Ring-
ling Bros. and Barnum &
Bagey Circus had come to
town, bringing yet another
growth spurt as, overnight,
the city became a house-
hold name in every city vis-
ited by the circus train. That
Venice was the winter quar-
ters was painted on every
train car during the sum-
mer of 1959 as the Greatest
Show on Earth crisscrossed
the United States and parts
of Canada, before arriving
at its new Venice home to
prepare for the 1960 season.
Before the completion of the
Intracoastal Waterway in
1967, the circus would arrive
at the depot and parade the
animals to the Venice Circus
Arena site on Avenida del


Circo, the 15-acre site that
replaced the 200-acre circus
home vacated in Sarasota at
the end of the preceding
season.
Marking the circus lega-
cy at the depot site is a stat-
ue of the late world famous
animal trainer Gunther Geb-
el Williams, who died in
Venice in 2001. Designed and
created by Ed Kasprowicz of
Apollo Beach, the nearly 8-
foot tall bronze statue depicts
the man considered the city's
most famous resident, with
flowing cape and the stance
he used when entering the
show ring aboard an ele-
phant. Gebel-Williams was
known for his humane
treatment of circus animals,
using love rather than whips
to train everything from hor-


ses to lions and tigers. The
performer arid his family
came to Venice in 1969. The
statue was dedicated Dec. 5,
-2005.
In the works is a Ringling
performer car, which will be
placed on a siding at the de-
pot as a circus museum and
additional reminder of the
importance of the presence
of the circus to the history
ofVenice.
The circus departed
from Veflice in 1992, be-
cause the estimated $3 mil-
lion cost to repair the
tracks to support the train
cars and elephants was too
great. Today the show pre-
miers in St. Petersburg in
late December. Its train
cars are built and repaired
at Parrish.

they are called lap dances,

waving to passing cars as
the commission debated
the ordinance changes.
The strippers fear the
loss of their livelihood.
One stripper, who iden-
tified herself only as Linda,
said she had asked one
community leader what
she was supposed to do for
a living if this ordinance
passed.
According to the strip-
per, the unnamed commu-
nity leader suggested she
get a job in another area of
the hospitality industry.
"I'm not sure I'd enjoy
cleaning motel rooms for
$6.15 an hour, although
I'm sure the men who run
the motels would prefer it,"
said Linda.

'Patsy Cline' performs at SVCA


ELLEN HILLSTROM
COLUMNIST


For a unique holiday
treat, at its Dec. 8 annual
holiday party, members of
the South Venice Civic Ass-
ociation will enjoy selected
songs from the production
of 'Always ... Patsy Cline."
This popular stage play was
performed on Venice Little
Theatre's Main Stage for
several years under the dir-
ection of Allan Kollar, star-
ring Tamara Sipes ac-
companied by Jason Bren-
ner. For our party, holiday
tunes will be mixed with
Patsy Kline classics such as
"Your Cheatin' Heart" and
"Crazy."
As of today, I believe the
dinner is sold out, which is
understandable. There will
be no tickets sold at the


door for sure.
We were able to book
Tamara Sipes for a special
reason; she has been hired
as the administrative assis-
tant for the SVCA, succeed-
ing me at the office. As one
board member comment-
ed, "I can see it now. If we
get into an argument during
a board meeting and go off
the agenda, Tamara will
probably burst into song, "I
Fall to Pieces." Seriously,
welcome Tamara. to your
new position.
Folks at the Venice Gond-
olier Sun know Tamara from
before. She was their Wel-
come Home account repre-
sentative for about a year,
and executive administra-
tive assistant to publisher
BobVedder. Bob, thank you
for nice reference and good
luck wishes to Tamara -
and for your comment that
I can never be replaced.
In preparation for the
holiday activities next mon-
th, at 6 p.m., Thursday, Dec.
6, volunteers from the Sou-
th Venice Garden Club and
SVCA members will deco-
rate the community center
and make floral center-
pieces. After our Dec. 8 par-
ty, the following Monday


the Garden Club will cele-
brate with a luncheon ban-
quet. Then the CERT group
follows with a special Christ-
mas potluck supper Thurs-
day, Dec. 13. A wonderful
month of food and friend-
ship.
My personal December
calendar is crowded with
luncheons and parties as
well. Throw in Christmas
shopping, mailing out cards,
and a week-long visit from
one of my sisters and her
husband. I haven't even tak-
en out my Christmas dec-
orations yet. Enjoy Dec-
ember everyone!
One other comment: If
you didn't get into the holi-
day spirit after watching the
downtown Venice Christ-
mas parade, you may as
well leave town today. Con-
gratulations and thank you
to the thousands of volun-
teers who put the parade
together. It shows again
what a fantastic and sharing
community greater Venice
really is.

Ellen Hillstrom is the
South Venice Civic
Association development
director.

FRIDAY
NOV. 30,2007


RELIGION


Hanukkah, ancient holiday, new spirit


BENNETT GROSS
RELIGION COLUMNIST


t a time when the world seems
to grow dark and somber and so
uch of our country feels the
icy fingers of winter, a miracle occurs.
The streets of our cities, the windows
of our homes are brightened by lights
celebrating two distinctively different
religious holidays united by a com-
mon purpose of giving thanks.
Christians give thanks for the birth
of their savior Jesus, while Jewish peo-
ple kindle the Hanukkah menorah to
commemorate the miracle that hap-
pened when the Maccabees took back
the HolyTemple from the better-armed
and equipped Syrians. All the oil used
to light the seven-branched candelabra
had been defiled by the conquerors
except for one tiny flask. It had enough
oil to bum for only one day but it
remained burning for eight days.
Happy as Hanukkah is, when I was
growing up it was regarded as a minor
religious holiday. Yes, we lit the meno-


rahi candles for eight nights and we ate
latkes, potatoes pancakes fried in oil.
But gifts consisted of real coins or
chocolate ones wrapped in gold foil
called Hanukkah gelt, and for fun we
spun a top called a dreidel.
On the other hand, Christmas
seemed far more exciting, with Chris-
tmas trees and gifts brought by Santa
Claus. I was 6 or 7 years old when an
uncle took me to Macy's Thanksgiving
Day Parade and, after seeing a balloon
replica of Santa Claus floating high in
the air, I met what I thought to be the
real-life version. After I came down a
slide in the store's toy department,
Santa gave me a gift.
Imagine how thrilled I had to be
when I got home and showed my
mother the gift. But my balloon was
deflated when she gently tried to
explain that we didn't believe in Santa
Claus because Christmas wasn't a
Jewish holiday.
"Does that mean I have to give back
his gift?" I cried.
Looking back, I believe children's
imaginations were bigger then than
they are today. For one thing, television
didn't intervene in our fantasy world.
So I clung to the idea of Santa Claus and
of putting up a stocking over the fire-
place even though we lived in an apart-
ment house and didn't even have a
chimney, let alone a fireplace.
And then a long way from Brooklyn
my wish was fulfilled. Taking the train
to visit my grandparents in Western
Pennsylvania I woke up to find a

stocking filled with candy and little
toys hung over the window in my
Pullman car berth.
"Just don't tell your grandfather,"
my mother smiled. "He doesn't believe
in Santa Claus either."
The years passed and a silent revo-
lution took place spurred on by chil-
dren like myself who grew up and
became parents. Hanukkah took on a
new spirit capturing the family togeth-
erness of Christmas along with the joy
of gift giving as we watched our chil-
dren's eyes light up as brightly as the
candles they lit.
Today the story of Hanukkah and
the Maccabees heroic victory has
become more than the miracle of the
oil but the religious freedom that
resulted. A freedom made more ap-
parent in America at this time of year,
Christmas trees and Menorahs sepa-
rate but equal in the public place, our
various faiths co-existing with respect
and dignity.
For this and other blessings we give
thanks. And we can make our thanks
meaningful by sharing our blessings
with those who have not been as for-
tunate. A toy for a tot, a donation in the
Salvation Army bucket, a contribution
to the food bank, there are so many
ways.
Shalom. And may the spirit of
peace in our hearts spread and spread
in the year ahead.

lic/Jewish studies and other Interfaith
affairs.

Good Shepherd welcomes


new priest, family Dec. 5


Cooking up something good


FROM EPISCOPAL CHURCH OF
THE GOOD SHEPHERD

A en asked, "Why did you
Move to Venice?" most peo-
WVple might say it is because
of the warm climate, the beautiful
beaches, or perhaps the small-town
feeling of community. This
is not the case for one of its
newest members, Jon Ro-
berts. He had a different sort
of reply. When asked, he
says, "God called me here."
One might guess he is also a
member of the clergy, a dea-
con that is, and a soon-to-
be ordained priest at the
Episcopal Church of the
Good Shepherd off Center
Road.
* There is good reason to
celebrate Wednesday, Dec.
5, for not only will he be
ordained into the sacred
order of the priesthood, it
will mean promising things
for the congregation there.
After a long and thorough The Ro
search, members of the at Epis
church realized the sur-
rounding area was growing
and a younger priest would be need-
ed for the task of outreach and mis-
sions. Not known for young clergy,
the Episcopal Church happened to
churn out such youthfulness in the
formation of this young man. The
discernment into becoming a priest
is a long one. In theory and, hopeful-
ly, application, a priest is formed out
of the congregation and sent out by
the people of that church in what is


an intensive listening process,
known informally as discernment.
This process began officially for Ro-
berts in 2003, but he claims God had
a hold on him much earlier, never
letting him go. "God was always xwil-
ing his purpose in my life," he says,
through his upbringing as a Pen-

tecostal, later a Baptist and even-
tually an Episcopalian. His piety, that
is his desire to worship God, has
branched into somewhat of a "high-
churchmanship," reflecting this tran-
sition, where he loves to witness ex-
cellent liturgy or "work of the peo-
ple" found in sacred spaces.
He claims Good Shepherd is one
of those spaces that is evolving, and
-he is excited about the possibilities


and about those who come there
each week to worship.
Aside from his love for the life of
the church, he and his family are
adjusting well since they made their
exodus from Wisconsin, graduating
from Nashotah House Theological
Seminary earlier this year. It was in
that colder part of the
country that God shaped
him into the type of
Christian man and future
priest intended to serve
the Venice community.
His wife, Lynne, and their
two children, Emma and
Watson, are actively in-
volved in the neighbor-
hood and can be seen
weekdays at Venice Ele-
mentary, Saturdays at the
local sports fields off
Pinebrook Road, or the
South County Family
YMCA. Their presence
o and activity are good
)SHEPHERD signs for the community
as Venice intends to at-
dination tract and encourage
young families to make
this their home too.
Anyone wishing to
meet the new minister may do so
each Sunday at the morning services
at Good Shepherd. As a new priest,
"Father Jon" intends to balance pas-
toral care, parish growth, and wor-
ship in a way that is intentional. As
an example he will lead an Advent, a
two-week devotion that pertains to
the life of prayer and meditation.
Call the church at 497-7286 to
learn more.

"' People
who spend many
hours working with
vibrating tools and who
experience numbness in
,their fingers may be
suffering from Hand-Arm
Vibration Syndrome. Symptoms of
this condition include pain, tingling,
numbness, and.increased sensitivity to
cold. Smokers and people who work in
cold temperatures may be particularly
vulnerable to this disorder, which stems
from constriction of the arteries.
Research has shown that, as the arteries
in the hand are subjected to prolonged
vibration, they become constricted,
which may, in turn, starve nerves. At
some point, it is possible that the
numbness caused by the vibration
could lead to permanent damage.

Sky's the limit for ceiling light panels


ne of the easiest ways to add a
new look to home or office is as
easy as replacing the white flu-
orescent light diffusers in one's
kitchen, bath, work room or office
with Skyscapes.
Skyscapes are designer light panels
printed with translucent designs that
give the look of puffy clouds in the sky,
fish swimming in an aquarium or
beveled glass.
When installed, the effect is similar
to what one sees in a real skylight or
what one would see if walking be-
neath an aquarium such as at one of
those underwater tourist attractions
where you walk beneath colorful trop-'
ical fish.
Some panels come with tree bran-


ches at one side or animal faces look-
ing down from above. Others have
bougainvillea branches, hot-air bal-
loons hovering above or jet planes fly-
ing in formation overhead.
Venice residents Jack and Jacky
Voigt are the area franchised dealers
for the greater Venice area. They have
installed the panels in their own kit-
chen and bathrooms, combining the
designs in various ways depending on
how many panels are together. In their
kitchen, Jacky cut the panels to fit their
home's dome ceiling.
Panels are 23 3/4 inches by 47 3/4
inches. They drop into most standard
fluorescent fixtures.
In medical and dental offices, the
panels are a welcome and calming


change from the plain white lights that
can be somewhat harsh to stare at
from a dental chair.
In smaller rooms such as bath-
rooms or laundry rooms, the panels
seem to add volume to the space.
Use the old panels as patterns and
cut the new panels with an Xacto
knife, Jack said. A coach for the New
York Mets, Jack is a longtime Venice
resident who played in the Major
Leagues following graduation from
Venice High School. Jacky is from
Venezuela, where she operated a retail
market,
