'Making holiday magic on the water


v


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

When Margo McIntyre of
Venice found out her son Dan-
iel, a soldier in Iraq, would soon
be coming home on leave she
started planning the biggest cel-
ebration her family had ever
seen.
"We didn't know the exact
date until a week ago, so it has
been rush, rush, rush ever
since," she said.
Army Spec. .Daniel Agriesti,
21, has been serving in Iraq
since January, an assignment
that terrified his mother at first.
"It tore me apart, but now I
realize all I can do is take it one


day at a time," she said.
Agriesti arrived on Dec. 1
bringing his wife and 2-year-old
daughter.
"I am a mother of four boys,
so I was tickled when I got to see
Rylie," McIntyre said.
Her son was greeted with a
big-yellow ribbon on an oak tree
in front of McIntyre's house.
There is also a huge poster with
pictures of the couple and their
daughter and signatures and
welcome-home sentiments
from his family and friends.
Saying a prayer
Agriesti, a 2004 graduate of
Venice High School, is currently
based at Fort Stewart, Ga. He is


planning a career inthe military,
but that may change after Dec.
16, when he returns to Iraq.
"The Army has been pretty
good to me and my family,"
Agriesti said.
For the next two weeks he
plans on shopping in Sarasota
and enjoying the company of
his family and Venice friends.
"They had a huge family din-
ner for me and it felt good to
hang out again with everyone,"
he said.
Tylin said it was comforting
to see him relaxing with his
brothers. She has mixed feelings
about his leaving to return to
Iraq.
"I understand this is all only


temporary," she said.
Agriesti is assigned to Iraq until
March 2008. At that time he plans
to return to Fort Stewart. '
"I have a few goals I want to
accomplish in the military," he
said.
Through the military.'Agriesti
hopes to continue his education
by getting a college degree.
He originally enlisted for five
years; after his tour in Iraq he
will he will decide whether to
make a career of the Army.
His mother has her own way
of dealing his return to Iraq.
"Each day I say a prayer for
him," Mclntyre said. "That is
about all anyone can do."

Foundation steps in to fund school nurse"


Gulf Coast Com-
munity Foundation. of
Venice will provide
stop-gap funding
while the school dis-
trict seeks a long-term
solution to keep a reg-
istered nurse on
Venice High School's
2,400-person campus.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

There's good news and
bad news at Venice High.
The 'good news: Gulf
Coast Community Founda-
tion ofVenice has stepped in
with stop-gap funding to
maintain a full-time nurse
at the school for the remain-
der of the school year.
The bad news: The
school will lose its popular
registered .nurse, Kendra
Buchanan-Marsden, after
five years on the job.
The foundation agreed
Nov. 30 to provide a grant up
to $25,000 to fund the posi-
tion, with the expectation
that Sarasota County School

next year.
"We can't very well have a


Kendra Buchanan-Marsden, Venice High's only registered nurse,
is moving on come Christmas break. A grant from Gulf Coast
Community Foundation of Venice will fund the position until the


high school with 2,100 stu-
dents and a bunch of facul-
ty and guests without a RN
on campus," said founda-
tion spokesperson Marjorie
Floyd.
"We don't want to be the
only high school in the
county without an RN. That
is unacceptable. We'll fill the
gap this time and hopefully
next year this .will not be an


issue."
The foundation stepped
in after Venice Regional Med-
ical Center twice agreed to
extend Buchanan-Marsden's
stay at the school.
Buchanan-Marsden is an
employee of the hospital,
which put the school dis-
trict on notice more than a
year ago that it would no
longer provide her services,


due partly to liability issues.
Anxiety
Eleventh-grader Katie Ed-
wards felt strongly enough
about keeping Buchanan-
Marsden that she organized
a,petition drive.
She and other students
collected more than 300 sig-
natures supporting the po-
sition.
"We know from personal'
experiences and observa-
tion, a registered nurse is
essential at our school," said
Edwards, a junior in the
school's medical academy
"It's a great resource for the
students."
She also let authorities
know she was considering
protesting in front of the
Venice Regional Medical
Center to make her point.

River Road the


crux of district


expansion bill


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Six state officials have
agreed to propose a bill
expanding the West Villages
Improvement District -to
include about 580 acres
near the intersection of U.S.
41 and River Road.
The contingency: An in-
terlocal agreement mistibe
reached by April 30. among
Sarasota County, the city of
North Port, developer
Fourth Quarter Properties
and the property owner on
issues of mutual concern.
The bill was proposed by
State Sen. Michael Bennett
and is in the hands of State
Rep. Ron Reagan for draft-
ing. Additional approval
was, given by State Reps.
Michael Grant, Keith Fitz-
gerald, Frank Peterman and
Doug Holder at a public
hearing at the Ringling
School of Art and Design
Monday.
According to Deputy
County Administrator Da-
vid Bullock, that contin-
gency means one thing: The
raising and widening of a
meaningful chunk of River
Road --a project that. in its
entirety, already bears a


price tag of $130 million.
"We need to define the
contribution of this major
development to the new
River Road that's the big
gorilla here," said Bullock,
who represented the county
at the hearing. "Part of the
reason we're having so
much trouble is the division
between the district, which
is a government-like agen-
cy, and the landowner and
developer, which are for-
profit enterprises. Our in-
terest is how does the com-
munity get what it deserves
from a development of this
magnitude."
Fourth Quarter attorney
JeffBoone agreed.
"We're trying to get to the
bottom of that," Boone said.
"River Road is a complex
issue. The funding of River
Road would come in large
part from impact fees,
which totally come from
development."
Unless and until
The West Villages Im-
provement District com-
prises almost 11,000 acres. It

Quarter in 2004 to fund

Delay of land regulations sought


Sharing the glow


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Laurel Schiller, an ardent
environmentalist and a
member of the Sarasota
County Planning Commis-
sion, wants the board of
county commissioners to
postpone a vote scheduled
for next week to amend
land development rules.
In a flurry of e-mails
between Schiller, a Venice-
area resident, the BCC and
county staff members, she
said that each native habitat
within the county's compre-
hensive plan should have
been identified for risk, and
updated before a 2006
deadline previously approv-
ed by the board.
"We're at the end of 2007
without the risk-assessment


study," Schiller wrote last
week. "No money has been
budgeted for it in the 2008
budget cycle.
"This vote is premature.
We still don't know how
much of each type of habi-
tat is left. We don't know
where it is. We don't know at
what rate it is being lost, so
we don't know when there
will be any more. This is
especially true within the
Urban Service Area."
'On their ear'
ENV Policy 4.5.6. in the
comprehensive plan calls
for an evaluation of open
space and habitat protec-
tion strategies to' enable
adoption of an amendment
by 2007 to achieve compli-
ance with environmental
goals. Schiller wrote that


county resource protection
staffers moved forward on
this to permit changes to
land development regula-
tions this month.
She disclosed that she
and others on the planning
commission had ques-
tioned a 2009 deadline pro-
posed by county staff for
completing a risk assess-
ment study. They requested
that it be done sooner. The
most recent one was com-
pleted in the late 1980s, and
included only coastal habi-
tats.
In a letter to Commis-
sioner Jon Thaxton, Schiller
stated that she had been

He chose to do these things

said Adam. "And as I got

Land buy strains environmental funds


Top volunteer


A county program to protect environmentally
sensitive land has been tapped for $31.7 mil-
lion of the $51.8 million purchase.


BY JACK GURNEY
PELICAN PRESS
One of Sarasqta County's
historic familiesihas sold off
4,746 acres of prime ranch
land and given up virtually
all of its development rights
on 7,630 adjacent acres for
$51.8 million, a transaction
conceived to protect both
regional water resources
and environmentally sensi-
tive lands.
On Nov. 27, the county
commission voted 4-1 to
partner with the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District and pay a lion's
share of the price $31.7
million out of a tax-sup-
ported fund established to
protect high-priority lands
from future development.
The 15,000-acre Mabry
Carlton Ranch has been
owned by the Carlton family
for generations. Barbara Carl-
ton inherited it from her hus-
band, late County Comm-
issioner T. Mabry Carlton,
after he was killed in a 1989
private plane crash.
"A lot of thought and
soul-searching has gone


into this acquisition," Com-
missioner Jon Thaxton said.
"The decision to support
this will not come easily for
any of us, but it may be our
last opportunity to preserve
this land in the heart of the
county's landscape."
Business side
Endorsing the purchase
was difficult for an appointed
citizens committee that eval-
uates potential land purchas-
es and ranks them based on a
series of environmental crite-
ria. It voted 6-2 for the pur-
chase, with two prominent
members opposing the deal.
In 2005, voters gave the
county authority to issue up
to $250 million in bonds for
land purchases, with a $150
million ceiling on environ-
mental parcels and $100
million on park sites. The
sales are predicated on re-
ceipt of enough tax revenue
to pay them off.
"I don't see this as a lega-
cy piece' of property," said
Commissioner Shannon St-
aub, who voted against the
expenditure. "This deal is
lopsided and I'm not com-


fortable with the contract. I
know this isn't politically
astute, but my business side
says I can't do it."
Several commissioners
also had problems with
terms of the contract, espe-
cially a provision that calls
for the sale to be concluded
before the end of this year.
County and district officials
who negotiated it explained
the swift closure provides sig-
nificant tax benefits for the
seller.
"I'll support this, but
share the reservations of
others," Commission Chair
Nora Patterson said. "There
will be future opportunities
for the county to buy lands
with more environmental
benefits that we won't be
able to afford. But I look at
this as a bird in the hand."
Swiftmud action
On Nov. 26, the water
management district's board
of governors allocated $20.1
million for its share of the
purchase price so the land
could be added to both its
Myakkahatchee Creek Pro-
ject and 94,000 acres previ-
ously amassed in what is
known as the Myakka Core
Conservation Area.
All of the district's invest-
ments are intended to pro-


tect either surface or under-
ground water supplies that
are being tapped by cities
and counties, or will be
developed as part of region-
al plans that provide for
new development in South-
west Florida.
Under terms of the pur-
chase agreement, the Carl-
ton family can continue to
maintain cattle on the 4,746
acre tract for one more year.
Cattle and agricultural act-
ivities can continue indefi-
nitely on the 7,630-acre
tract, but only seven homes
can be built on it.
One of the contract pro-
visions addresses mineral
rights to explore for gas and
oil. The Carlton family has
acquired about 80 percent
of the rights on 9,816 en-
cumbered acres and will
convey them to the buyers,
with the balance to be
retained by seven other
owners.
"We have statutory aut-
hority to condemn those
mineral rights, if necessary,
and acquire them after five
years," said Eric Sutton, a,
former county employee
who works for the water dis-
trict. "The contract calls for
$2.5 million to be held in
escrow in the event that be-
comes necessary."

High school graduation rates are up locally


But so is the number of dropouts.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The annual report on
school graduation and drop-
out rates showed improve-
ment statewide, but mixed
results for Sarasota County.
Gov. Charlie Crist and
Education Commissioner
Jeanine Blomberg announ-
ced Nov. 30 that Florida's
graduation rate rose to 72.4
percent in 2006-07, an in-
crease of 1.4 percentage
points compared to last
year's rate of 71.0 percent.
Sarasota County did well
also, rising 3.6 percentage
points, from 79.9 percent in
2005-06 to 83.5 percent in
2006-07.
It's an impressive single-
year gain, and makes up for


the previous year's 1.8 per-
cent drop in the county
graduation rate.
Most important, say edu-
cators, is that it shows a
trend of steady improve-
ment over time.
The statistics aren't with-
out their detractors.
Florida's Department of
Education fields a bevy of
questions each year over
national reports that show
the state graduation rate at
barely more than 60 per-
cent.
The disparity, say some,
is due to how Florida counts
its dropouts who go on to
receive a GED, among other
things.
They're counted by Flor-
ida as graduates, which
some critics argue artificial-


ly inflates the graduation
rates.
The impact isn't as pro-
nounced in Sarasota County,
where GEDs account for only
5 percent of the graduation
rate, according to FDOE.
In other Florida school
districts it accounts for up to
10 percent of their graduates.
Meanwhile, Florida's an-
nual high school dropqut
rate declined from last year,
dropping 0.2 percentage
points to 3.3 percent.
The Florida Department
of Education noted the
dropout rate decreased 2.1
points since 1998-99, but
statistics show there really
hasn't been any significant
change in the dropout rate
going back to the 2001-02
school year when it was 3.2
percent.
It's hard to compare drop-
out rates before that due to


changes in the way dropout
rates have been computed
over time.
Sarasota County's dropout
rate got worse this year,
increasing 0.2 percentage
points from 2.5 to 2.7 per-
cent.
According to district
spokesperson Gary Leat-
herman, that equates to 401
students who dropped out
in 2006-07, compared to
362 students who dropped
out in 2005-06.
The rate has increased
and decreased over the past
six years, but it's not signifi-
cantly different from the 3.1
percent in 2000-01.
Officialdom
"Florida has made ex-
ceptional progress in help-
ing students realize the
value and necessity of a
high school education,"


said Crist.
"This year's graduation.
rate is the highest it has been
since Florida employed new,
more accurate data collec-
tion methods during the
1998-99 school year.
He said graduation rates
for African-American and
Hispanic students showed
the largest growth this year,
increasing by 1.8 and 2.3
percent, respectively.
The Florida Department
of Education bases its grad-
uation rate on data that fol-
low every single student
from ninth grade to gradua-
tion, according to a FDOE
press release.
The latest annual decline
in the state's dropout rate
occurred primarily as a result
of continuing improvements
by minority students, said
DOE officials. ,
FDOE also criticized a.


recent study by Johns Hop-
kins University, which re-
portedly sampled Florida
school districts and found a
dropout rate of 40 percent.
According to a FDOE
press release, "national stud-
ies of dropout rates, includ-
ing the one recently conduct-
ed by Johns Hopkins Uni-
versity, use a generalized
methodology when calculat-
ing their findings. This ap-
proach only examines the
differences between enroll-
ment numbers rather than
account for the actual enroll-
ment status of each student.
Florida's calculations for the
dropout rate factor in the
status of each student. For
instance, a student who
transfers schools is not con-
sidered a dropout."

Homeowners hear Thomas Ranch debate


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Emotions ran high in the
Green Street Church last
week as the Olde Englewood
Village Homeowners Asso-
ciation heard contrasting
positions on the proposed
Thomas Ranch expansion.
Bill Earl and Bill Zoller of
the Sarasota County Council
of Neighborhood Asso-
ciations went first. Earl ex-
plained that the expansion,
to be called Gottfried Village
and developed by Fourth
Quarter Properties, would be
located on 2,850 acres strad-
dling South River Road.
Maximum housing density
would increase by some 700


percent, he said, from the
current maximum allowance
of 1,072 homes to 7,125.
"This proposal will add
16,000 new residents to River
Road," Earl said, to gasps
from the crowd. "That's in
addition to another section of
Thomas Ranch, which has
already been approved by
North Port, to be called the
Isles of Athena. That calls for
15,000 new homes and
34,500 more residents."
Earl said a 3-2 vote on Oct.
23 by the Sarasota County
Commission to tentatively
approve Gottfried Village
overrode recommendations
of their own staff of experts
on the subject. Com-
missioners Paul Mercier, Joe


Barbetta and Shannon Staub
voted for approval; commis-
sioners Jon Thaxton and
Nora Patterson voted against
it.
"Their own staff recom-
mended denial," Earl said.
"That doesn't happen often."
Earl said county staff's rec-
ommendation was based on
these findings:
* No demonstrated need for
new housing in this area.
* Inadequate roads to sup-
port the project-
* Inadequate water supply.
* Failure to meet county stan-
dards for villages.
* Developer has not agreed to
provide affordable housing
or an elementary school.
* Development will be locat-


ed outside of the county's
Urban Service Boundary.
"Urban services are water,
sewer, roads and facilities,"
Earl said. "Having a de-
marcation line keeps urban
sprawl in check."
This subject folded into
Zoller's mission for the night's
agenda: to gain signatures on
a Council of Neighborhood
Associations-initiated peti-
tion that would force a refer-
endum to amend the coun-
ty's comprehensive plan.
That amendment would re-
quire voter approval before
any changes to the county's
Urban Service Area could
take place.

hospital. I will miss the stu-
dents."
A registered nurse with
12 years' experience at Ven-
ice Regional, Buchanan-
Marsden will assume a new
position at the hospital.
Her role has been more
than providing cold med-
ication and soothing advice
to youth and staff.
She tackles the tough
issues, like counseling stu-
dents and adults about dia-
betes, pregnancy and severe
emotional issues.
Because she has an
understanding of illnesses
and accidents, she can dis-
cuss surgeries and give stu-
dents an awareness about
what recovery will be like.
She also teaches mini-
lessons throughout the week,
and assists the school's med-
ical academy. The academy
provides a course "path-
way" that helps prepare stu-
dents for a future in the
medical profession.
Luckily, she doesn't have
to go it alone. The school
clinic has a full-time nurse's
aide, in addition to school
counselors; a visiting YMCA
counselor; and a school
psychologist.
A friend, too
Buchanan-Marsden's
announcement that she
would be leaving sent shiv-
ers throughout the school
community.
The connections she
made over the years were
strong, say school adminis-
trators.
"She is a wonderful per-
son and a wonderful asset to
the high school," said
Principal Candace Milling-
ton. "She is really loved by
students and staff. She has a
high trust level here at this
school, which is important
for a person in this capacity.
"It's not just a position ...
she's a friend to our staff and
students. I'm sure that's part
of the concern. She will be
very hard to replace," Mil-

to be a community school

While saddened about
Buchanan-Marsden's exit,
Edwards said the students


SUN PHOTO BY JEFF TAVARES, jtavares@venicegondolier.com
Eleventh-grader Katie Edwards helped raise community aware-
ness about the need to maintain a registered nurse at Venice
High. She spearheaded an effort to gather more than 300 signa-
tures in support of the position.


are glad the foundation
stepped in and the district
appears to be committed to
making sure Venice High
maintains a full-time nurse.
"I am very excited and
very happy about it," she
said. "Even though we're not
going to have Kendra back,
it was really nice to have her.
Kendra was really good
about getting kids to be
nurses, and great for the
community."
A better way?
The agreement between


Venice Regional and Venice
High for the past five years
is unusual throughout the
nation.
It may be one of the few
hospitals in the country that
actually places a nurse in a
public school. Other hospi-
tals provide funding, but
not the personnel.
North Port High, for ex-
ample, has a full-time nurse
funded by Sarasota Mem-
orial Hospital, but the coun-
ty determines placement.
The original deal was
struck between VRMC and


the school district when the
hospital was owned by Bon
Secours.
When VRMC President
and Chief Executive Officer
Melody Trimble took over
the hospital more than two
years ago, she allowed it to
continue providing Bu-
chanan-Marsden's services,
with a caveat the hospital
would discontinue the ser-
vice at the end of the 2006-
07 school year.
On Nov. 30 Sherri Reyn-
olds, supervisor of health
for student services for
Sarasota County schools,
met with Millington and
county health officials Bill
Little and Chris Griffith.
Collectively they agreed
on the need to have a full-
time RN at Venice High.
Now that stop-gap fund-
ing has been secured, the,
school district is working
with county officials on a
plan to provide more holis-
tic coverage for all its.
schools.
It's even going to look at
West Palm Beach's model of
providing coverage.
Like others, that district
formerly worked with hos-
pitals to pay for school
nurses. Eventually it created
a taxing district to pay to
fund the programs, Reyn-
olds said.
"We're going to pull to-
gether. information on
whether there is a better
model that delivers (nurs-
ing) services in the county,"
. Little said.
"Given existing resourc-
es, is there a better deploy-
ment model? If we wanted
to expand services, what
would that take?"
Little said the working
group will present a "rea-
sonable plan to take to
school board" by the end of
the school year.

Homebuyer orientations set


Community Housing Trust
has begun holding orienta-
tions for first-time homebuy-
ers.
Homebuyer orientations
are a one-hour introduction
that provides a road map for
people interested in buying
a home.
At the end of the orienta-
tion, participants can un-
dergo a homebuyer readi-
ness assessment so they
know how prepared they


are to buy a house, what
price of a home they qualify
for and what their next step
is in the process.
Based on the assess-
ment, people will be linked
with an array of services,
including homebuyer edu-
cation, credit counseling
and affordable loan prod-
ucts.

The Gottfried Village

The commissioners ap-
proved that move on Oct. 23
by a slim 3-2 vote. Due to


the recent passage of the so-I

vote on GottfriedVillage will
require approval of at least
four commissioners.

OUR VIEW


County, city must keep the butts off our beaches


he search for a perfect spot on the
beach is more art than science. You
want a spot away from trash cans
and seaweed, you want a spot close
to the water and maybe a pretty girl or
hunkyguy.
You want a spot with soft, white sand;
you want a spot away from a blaring radio
or rowdy youngsters. And most important
nowadays, you want a spot without a dozen
cigarette butts sticking out of the sand.
Nothing is as incongruous with the
beauty and peacefulness of Florida's beach-
es as carelessly discarded cigarette butts,
but every year city, county and state park
staffers clean up millions of them.
And Florida smokers are not alone in
their disregard for common decency and


hygiene. In annual global surveys by the
.Ocean Conservancy, cigarette butts have
been the top item littering the world's
beaches for 17 straight years.
More than 1.9 million butts were
picked. up from beaches around the
world during the conservancy's 2006
International Coastal Cleanup. Cigarette
and cigar butts and packaging account
for 40 percent of coastal pollution, ac-
cording to a Conservancy analysis.
As we noted in an editorial applauding
Sarasota County's review of smoking poli-
cies, volunteers and county employees
removed 32 pounds of cigarette filter tips
from county beaches last year.
Sarasota has been a national leader on
sustainable communities, green con-


struction, fertilizer run-off control, water
conservation and other environmental
issues. Recently, the county commission
took another step ahead by setting a Dec. 11
vote to ban smoking at county beaches. The
matter is also under discussion inVenice.
We urge the commissioners to send a
unanimous message to its residents and
visitors that the only butts that belong on
our beaches should be wearing swimsuits.
Not only are the discarded butts un-
sightly, they pose significant health and
environmental risks. Marine researchers
are finding cigarette filters, which. are
made of a plastic called cellulose acetate,
in the bellies of sea turtles.
Filters that don't wind up in turtle bel-
lies break down gradually in a process


known as photodegradation. But tiny bits
of plastic are powerful magnets for poi-
sons such as DDT and PCBs that get
eaten by fish and filter feeders and wind
up in the food chain.
We're not big fans of government
paternalism. Like many laws, a cigarette
ordinance would.be unnecessary if peo-
ple acted more responsibly by throwing
away their butts.
But that's not the case. Why should
thousands of beachgoers, both residents
and visitors, be subjected to disgusting,
dirty and dangerous cigarette butts just
so some can enjoy a smoke on the shore?
They shouldn't.
It's long past time to eliminate the nui-
sance.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Spirit of the season in Venice


Editor:
Saturday evening my wife and I enjoyed the wonderful
Venice Boat Parade. This was the first time we watched
from other than the Venice Yacht Club or on a vessel we had
helped decorate.
Because my wife fell earlier this year, we were reluctant
to tackle crowds and we're being very careful she does not
fall again.
I found a parking space just east of the Gondolier Sun
offices, and after we left our car, three y9ung ladies helped
my wife across the grassy area and onto the walkway. Then
they seated her in one of their folding chairs and asked if I
was OK.
All through our time waiting for the parade to start and
while we watched the parade, these young ladies stayed
with us and then helped my wife of more than 64 years back
into our car.
These ladies are an excellent example of the kind of peo-
ple we have in the Venice area, and we thank them so much
for their help, their compassion and their friendship.
It's what sold us on Venice when we moved here almost
30 years ago.
Margie and Jack Cordill

Clinton charges
discredited
Editor:
How could you possibly
run a scurrilous letter such
as the one that listed all the
warnings about the Clin-
tons? Every single one. of
those so-called "mysteries"
is not only old news but also
discredited rumor.
Moreover, each has been
researched up and down
and backward and forward
by everyone from Special
Prosecutor Kenneth Starr to
millionaire Clinton hater
extraordinaire Richard Mel-
lon Scaife.
No credible evidence of
wrongdoing has ever been
found.
I was under the impres-
. sion that your policy ex-
cluded the publication of
slanderous material.
One would think the
Gondolier Sun might have a
sense of fairness, good
judgment and shame, even


if that letter writer does
not.
A conservative and pro-
Republican editorial policy
is one thing; allowing letters
such as the one referred to is
well beyond the pale.

Richard Earle
Venice

EDITOR'S NOTE: Read on for
another opinion.


Letter just scratched
the surface
Editor:
I was overjoyed with
Anne B. Graf's letter to the.
editor stating facts. I was
beginning to believe that no
one was alive who wit-
nessed the horror of the
Clinton administration for
all those years.
It's all documented,
signed, sealed and deliv-
ered. How could one person
with any part of a brain


functioning support either
Clinton? They should be in
prison.
They've destroyed or
sealed all records, including
Willy's health report, in an
effort to hide his cocaine
addiction. Any paper that
would disclose their crimes
was stolen and destroyed.
I will say, the Clintons do
have active Mafia hench-
men doing their dirty work,
and very effectively from
the Arkansas state troopers
who dared disclose Willy's
oversexed, drugged life and
were murdered, to the
trooper's girlfriend he con-
fided in about Willy and
who was murdered, to the
Arkansas state medical ex-
aminer who "won" his posi-
tion by exonerating Willy's
mother from careless-mur-
der charges and was then.
taken to Washington, D.C.,
with Willy as National
Health Director to the 16-
and 17-year-old boys who
were murdered in Arkansas
as they spied on Willy's
cocaine drop-off field and
that same medical examin-
er said they committed sui-
cide ... the list goes on.
The Clintons must have
discovered very quickly in
life in their push for power
just as P.T. Barnum did:
there's a sucker born every
minute.
How else could the
Clintons have happened in
America and continue to
this day.
Talk about scary.

Poll was the
last straw
Editor:
I attended the St. Peters-
burg presidential debate


rally at Vinoy Park on Wed-
nesday, Nov. 28, that was
put on by the Republican
Executive Committees of
Pinellas, Pasco, Hillsbor-
ough and Manatee Coun-
ties. I was appalled at the
voting process and at the
fact that the election office
of Pinellas County partici-
pated in the farce.
By allowing multiple
votes by the same person at
this rally, you have dis-
graced the office of elec-
tions of Pinellas County and
what we Americans have
always held in high esteem:
the election process. How
can I trust you again?
For a true poll (but truth
was farthest from the inten-
tion of. the Republican
Executive Committee), it
should have been one per-
son, one vote.
I would hope that all the
members of the Republican
Executive Committee who
participated in this straw
poll will be dismissed from.
their office. They can't be
trusted to bring forth the.
truth and nothing less is
acceptable.

Ah, the smell
of snowbirds
Editor:
It's that time of year

The snowbirds are back.

You can smell them as

Later on. During the Nov. 27 Venice City Council meet-
ing, several people at the meeting mentioned that it would
be desirable for the meetings to be held in the evening,
making it more accessible -to more city residents. It's an
excellent idea. Not a new idea, since the council had
evening meetings some years back. However, as it now
stands and according to the Florida League of Cities'
records, Venice is one of the few municipalities of its size in
the state of Florida that does not have council meetings
start at 6 p.m. or later. This way more citizens can partici-
pate in the process with these evening meetings. Pure and
simple. We would appreciate the time to be able to do this.


Problems. Someone call-
ed in about their DSL com-
puter and wanted to know if
anyone else was having that
problem. We're having terri-
ble problems with ours. It
goes out on us all the time
and we can hardly use the
computer. I hope that if
other people are having this
problem they'll call and
maybe Verizon will fix it.
Disconnecting. I'm call-
ing about the DSL problems
that I've noted. I live in the
Venice area and have had
continual problems ever
since I contracted to have


DSL. The basic problem is it
keeps disconnecting, some-
times five, six or seven times
a day. I've been unable to
get any satisfaction in get-
ting it fixed. So the caller is
not alone.
Justice. I believe in, an
eye for an eye. That there are
attorneys and others out
there that are concerned
that murders might suffer.
when they are put to death
is a bit ludicrous. What
about the poor victims and
the mental anguish that the
relatives of the victims go
through? It makes no sense,


and frankly makes me angry
and sick how we pamper
our criminals in this coun-
try. Where is the justice for
the victims? Let's put the
murderers to death the way
they killed their victims.
Now that's justice.
Have fun. Hurrah for
Tropical Bob. He was right.
Believe it, he was right. He
said after daylight savings
ended that it would get
cooler. It did. And about
Ecineville come on folks,
get a life. What happened to
folks with a sense of humor?
Read the thing with tongue
in cheek, the way it was
written. Don't get so bent
out of shape about it. Have
fun. Get a laugh out of life
once in a while.
Follow through. One of
things that Lang, Zavodnyik
and Martin campaigned on
was doing away with the free
health insurance for council
members. Let's see if they fol-
low through with that now
that they are in the office.

Vaccine plentiful, flu scarce so far


BY JOHN HAUGHEY
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County
health departments has or-
ganized drive-through shot

as part of a coalition of pub-
lic and private health-care
providers.
"It seems to work well,"
said Sarasota County Health
Department spokesperson
Dianne Shipley. "People like
the idea of not having to get
out of their cars."
Of course, the point -
literally is to get as many
area residents inoculated
against the flu as soon as
possible.
Shipley said it takes up to
two weeks for the vaccine to

10 MOST GERM-INFESTED PLACES
1. Kitchen sink: Even worse than bathroom sinks. Sponges, dishrags are the citadels of
cootie culture.
2. Airplane bathrooms: Turbulence isn't the only reason why passengers fidget in their
seats with white knuckles and crossed legs.
3. Public drinking fountains: That sparkly spigot is, indeed, spit-shined.
4. ATM buttons: There may be less bang for the devalued dollar right now but, rest
assured, you're getting a whole lotta yuck with every buck.
5. W6men's handbags: At last, confirmation of the male suspicion that women carry
everything, including the kitchen sink (see No. 1), in their pocketbooks. Leather and vinyl
are cleaner than cloth.
6. Playgrounds: It's all fun and games until someone shares everything with everyone.
,7. Health clubs/locker rooms: Is that irony in the air? Why, yes mixed with a aromatic
spritz of teen spirit and antibiotic-resistant staphylococcus. Use sandals. Sit on your
towel. Listen to your mother.
8. Bathtubs: You're Janet Leigh. Germs are Anthony Perkins. This isn't "Pyscho," it's
"Patho."
9. Office phones, mouses, desktops: Time to put a bug in your boss' ear about working
from home. Use disinfecting wipes on everything. Your hygienic halo will serve notice
that the fine line between sanitary and sanity Is a boundary you no longer recognize.
10. TV remote control: For men, the ultimate trespass. Knowing someone else handled
your remote, Infecting with colonies of their germs, is unnerving in an undefinably viscer-
al way. Get germicidal if not for the hygiene, for the therapy. While you're at it, get the
doorknobs, light switches, pens and faucet handles.

said.
Timing could be pivotal.

Kind of early
"Last year, there was a
spike (in flu cases) in early


December," Shipley said.
"This year, we aren't expect-
ing to see that until late
January or early February."
Flu "season" officially be-
gan Oct. 1 but, she said, "So
far, we've had very little flu
activity in Sarasota County."
And the vaccine situation
is good, too.
"For adults, yes, but we
are not seeing the vaccine
we would like to see for chil-
dren," Shipley said. "We are


not getting the supplies we
would like to see."
Nevertheless, she said,
Sarasota County has inocu-
lated 492 children with flu
vaccine since Oct. 1.
"That is 200 ahead of
where we were last year at
this time," Shipley said, not-
ing 1,537 children were
immunized by the county
last flu season.
Fortunately, local school
districts are not seeing any


significant flu outbreaks
among students.
"We're not seeing it, but
it's kind of early," said
Sarasota County School
District spokesperson Sher-
ri Reynolds.
"So far," she said, "so
good, but always the re-
minder out there wash
your hands."

Volunteers needed
Sarasota County is fol-

summer seagrass survey
with a call for volunteers to
participate in its winter sur-

December through Feb-

The county began its
mapping program last win-
ter to provide supplemental
information to the South-
west Florida Water Man-
agement District's existing
seagrass mapping effort
and has since been asked by
Swiftmud to become the
model for other counties.
All program volunteers
for the winter seagrass sur-
vey must attend one of two
training classes, which con-
sist of a brief program over-
view and hands-on training

Venice, Fl A new home ownership program
allows qualified buyers to buy a home with
absolutely no down payment.
You may have owned a home before
and are'presently renting, or maybe you are a

Well regardless of your present
situation, if you want to get into, or reenter
the housing market, without having to make a
cash down payment, then this new program
may be just what you're looking for. Why
pay your landlord's mortgage when you can


be building your own equity.
Industry insiders have prepared a new
special report entitled, "How to Buy a Home
with Zero Down" which reveals how this new
and innovative program can get you into the
housing market immediately and with
absolutely no down payment.
To hear a brief recorded message
about how to order your free copy of this
report, call 1-800-605-0498 and enter ID#

Birdies for bucks, PGA raises money for local charities


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

Nine-year-old Quentin
Waid is just like any other
kid. He likes to paint, draw,
listen to music, play with his
dog and watch sports. Only
he doesn't get to play too
many sports.
Quentin suffers from a
rare disease called Loeys
Dietz Syndrome.
Only about 180 children
on earth have been diag-
nosed with this disease. It
causes weak spots in the
body, especially the arteries,
leading oftentimes to an-
eurysms. Instead of spend-
ing his days on the ball field,
Quentin spends most of his
time with his doctors.
"We tend to go to doctors
appointments a lot and that
becomes your life," Quen-
tin's mother, Sheila Waid
said.
That's where the Make-
A-Wish Foundation step-
ped in and granted Quentin's
wish to go on a Disney cru-
ise. It gave theWaids a chan-
ce to forget about doctors,
nurses and hospital beds,
even if only for a week.
"It was the best time in all
my life," Quentin said. "I
really like my doctors and


nurses, but it was nice not
having to go to an appoint-
ment."
"It trulywas a dream come,
true," Quentin's mother add-
ed. "Not just for him, but for
our family. The chance to be
able to do this and forget it all
for a week was just a dream
come true for all of us."
But it wouldn't have been
possible without the help of
the Make-A-Wish Founda-
tion, and Make-A-Wish
couldn't exist without help
from community organiza-
tions such as the South-
western Chapter of the North
Florida Professional Golfers'
Association ofAmerica.
Through fundraisers
called "birdie-a-thons," in
which people pledge mon-
ey for each birdie made, the
PGA has raised more than
$100,000 for local charities
such as Make-A-Wish. The
Oaks Club alone has raised
more than' $16,000 in the
past year and Plantation
Golf and Country Club has
raised more than $1f,000.
'"And we're not cheating
when we're out there," Tim
Beckwith, director of golf at
The Oaks said. "We're telling
the truth about how many
birdies we've had."
Make-A-Wish isn't the


only organization reaping
the rewards of these birdie-
a-thons. The Greater Sara-
sota Junior Golf Associ-
ation, Florida Adaptive Golf,
Big Brothers Big Sisters, the
Boys and Girls Club and the
First Tee Program are all big
winners.
Last week, the PGA dis-
tributed about $40,000 at a
charity luncheon at The Oaks
Club. Representatives from
all of the previously listed
charities, as well as the Waid
family were in attendance.
"It's because of organiza-
tions like the PGA that kids
like Quentin are able to do
things that they normally
wouldn't be able to do,"
Quentin's father, Jim Waid
said.
The PGA and Make-A-
Wish have started a chain re-
action. Thanks to their pro-
viding such an awesome ex-
perience for Quentin, he has
started up his own fundrais-
er called Quentin's Quest.
He is currently in the
process of raising money for
All Children's Hospital, Loeys
Dietz Syndrome research
and Make-A-Wish through
$1 donations.
"I really wanted to do
something more so they
know they are appreciated

and will want to keep helping
kids like me," he said.
Starting as an e-mail chain
letter, Quentin's Quest has
now raised $7,324 according


to quentinsquest.org. On his
birthday, April 20, Quentin
will divide the money three
ways and donate it to each of
the three beneficiaries.

Venice soccer: Girls tie, boys cry


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


After 160 minutes of soc-
cer between the Venice
High School and Manatee
High School girls soccer
teams, no team had em-
erged as the district front-
runner.
For the second time this
season, the district rivals
ended their game in a tie.
The first time it was 0-0 at
Manatee. The second it was
1-1 at Powell-Davis Stadium
on Tuesday night.
"We feel good about
tying them," Venice Head
Coach Sheldoh Chamber-
lain said. "They're undefeat-
ed I hear. Now they have
two ties."
Manatee brought the
pressure in the first half. The
Hurricanes took nine shots,
five of which were on goal.
Five saves by Venice goal-
keeper Diana Lambrecht
kept the score tied at 0-0.
Manatee's shot parade
continued into the second
half. The Hurricanes pos-
sessed the ball for a majori-
ty of the half and took
another nine shots. This


time, only two were on goal.
Despite the possession
trend in the second half, the
Indians took the lead in the
50th minute on a goal from
Kristina Swanson. Venice
tried to attack later in the
game to extend the lead, but
they were unable to do so.
"The first half, I though
we controlled"'the game,
had good possession. We
were working the ball out of
the back and around the
sides, attacking them nicely.
We were unlucky and could-
n't get a goal. The first half it
seemed we were there,"
Chamberlain said. "The sec-
ond half, we kind of let up
and they got a lot of free
kicks which started to
change the game around."
Manatee had 11 free
kicks in the second half, one
of which was a penalty kick
for a goal by Chrissy Rice in
the 72nd minute. That tied
the game up at 1-1, where it
would stay.
In boys action, the In-
dians got pummeled Mon-
day night 6-1 at the hands of
Charlotte High School at
Powell-Davis Stadium.
The Tarpons scored early


when Kyle Quimby kicked it
over the keeper's head from
about 30-yards out in the
third minute. By halftime
the score was 2-0.
In the second half, Char-
lotte piled it on. Johothan
Claus scored twice within
five minutes to put the Tar-
pons up 4-0. Pedro Rod-1
nguez added another four
minutes later. Brandon Car-
penter tacked on the 6th
point in the 57th minute. .
The Indians finally got on
the board to avoid the shut
out when Jacob Nordstrom
punched one in in the 74th
minute.
"That was a whooping,"
Venice Head Coach Seth
Jones said. "Charlotte came
out and they wanted it more
than we did. That's the way
that they played the whole
game and we didn't."
Both the boys and girls
teams face off with South-
east High School Thursday
night. The boys will be at
home at 6 p.m. and the girls
will be at Southeast at
7:30 p.m.

Burton pushes Indians past Pirates


Lady Indians start



slow, fall to Southeast


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


The Venice -High School
girls baskfb'iall'team fell
behind big time in the first
quarter and were unable to
climb back Tuesday against
Southeast High School,
falling 56-36.
The Seminoles, who
have won seven straight dis-
trict titles, jumped all over
the Indians, taking a 20-6
first-quarter lead. South-
east's Erica Dudley finished
the game with 19 points, 15
of them coming in the first
half.
"It was pretty bad" Venice
Head Coach Bruce Reich-'
enbach said. "We didn't exe-
cute again offensively or
defensively. We got behind
early in the first quarter and
we played even with them
the second half but we still
ended up losing by 20."
Lauren Ramey led the
Indians with 11 points, fol-
lowed by Kaylee Ream and
Kirsten Walchle with six a
piece.
In the last four games,
Venice (3-4) has struggled to


play four solid quarters.
Against Sickles High School
Nov. 17, Venice led by nine
iat the start of the fourth
quarter only to watch Sick-
les take the lead in the wan-
ing seconds for the win.
Even in their last victory,
Nov. 27 against Charlotte
High School, the Indians
trailed 21-6 at the end of the
first quarter. Last week ag-
ainst Lakewood Ranch High
School, Venice outscored
the Mustangs in the second
half 29-23, but still fell short.
"If we had just played the
first half like we played the
second half, we would be
right there," Reichenbach
said. "We've got to play four
quarters, there's no doubt.
We haven't done that yet
this year. Even in the three
wins that we've won, we've
never played four quarters."
Foul trouble has been the
culprit for inconsistent play
in recent games as well as
the one against Southeast.
Ream and Jen Thoennissen
each came out early in the
second quarter with three
fouls each. One Seminole
even shot seven of eight free


throws in the first quartet
alone.
Injuries haven't helped
the plight of the India-s]
eitfr. Although they are all
playing, Thoennissen, Diana
Mehserle and Lindsay Reig,
secker are all banged uA
with various injuries.
"We're just more frustrat-
ed than anything right now
because we know we're bet,
ter than what we're play-
ing," Reichenbach said;
"We're still making a lot of
turnovers and we're still
fouling. You can't win a lot of
games when you're doing
that."
Next on the schedule fo',
Venice is a Dec. 6 road gamE
against Manatee High Schook
at 7:30 p.m. The Hurricanesf
defeated Southeast. earlier
this season, but lost by 13
on the road to the Sem-'
inoles Thursday.
"I think we'll come
around, I have a lot of confi-,
dence in the girls," Reichen-i
bach said. "We've just got toy
keep practicing hard."

Even with a steady stream
of venom spewed in his
direction, Venice sopho-
more Trey Burton was able
to play the role of hero
Tuesday night at Port Char-
lotte High School.
Burton, who endured no
small amount of taunting
courtesy of the Pirates faith-
ful, connected on two free
throws with three seconds
remaining to give the In-
dians boys basketball team
a 43-39 victory over District
5A-12 opponent Port Char-
lotte.
"Trey's definitely a com-
petitor," said Venice head
coach Steve Cavallaro. "And
we executed better in the
second half. At halftime I
told them, 'Let's just do
what we talked about at the
beginning of the game.' And
it worked."
The Pirates, meanwhile,
struggled following a hot
start offensively. After shoot-
ing close to 50 percent from
the field in the first half (9-
for-19), the Pirates man-


aged only a 5-for-20 perfor-
mance in the final two quar-
ters combined, including
just 2-for-8 in the fourth
quarter.
Depite their shooting
woes, however, the Pirates
managed to tie the game at
39 when Daniel Jacquet
scored with 50 seconds left in
the fourth quarter. But the
Indians' Justin Grant scored
on a running jumper in the
lane with 14.1 seconds
remaining and a Pirates'
three-point attempt was no
good, as Burton got the
rebound and was conse-
quently fouled.
The victory marked the
fourth straight for the In-
dians, who start three soph-
omores, including Burton,
who scored eight points and
added eight rebounds Tues-
day.
Jacquet finished with a
team-high 12 points and
eight rebounds for the Pir-
ates, who have had the un-
fortunate pleasure of open-
ing their district schedule
against Charlotte, Venice
and North Port (Port Char-
lotte takes on the Bobcats


this Friday), arguably the
top three teams in the dis-
trict.
"We didn't play real well
at the beginning of the sea-
son," said Pirates head
coach Bill Specht, whose
team falls to 3-2 (0-2 District
5A-12) this season. 'And I

"We executed better
in the second half. I
told them, 'Let's just
do what we talked
about at the begin-
ning of the game.'
And it worked."
Steve Cavallaro
Venice head coach

told the kids we were going
to have to play a lot better or
we were going to get killed
once we got to our district
games. We haven't gotten
killed; we've been in two
games we could have won.
"We're just not there yet."

HOLIDAY MEMORIES 6B


A CENTURY PLUS ONE 8B


Venice Irt Center decks its halls


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER

If your holiday decora-
tions are looking a little
tired this season, pay a
visit to the Venice Art Cen-
ter's holiday shopping gal-
lery. .
VAC artists donated their.
time and talent recently to
create holiday decorations
and items suitable for gifts.
The proceeds of their labor
go to support the center
and its programs.
Not your typical holiday
bazaar, the VAC gallery fea-
tures one-of-a-kind items
made by major artists in the
area.
The Solo Gallery features


Tonya Sauppe looks at a deco-
ration she made at the Venice
Art Center workshop.

festive decor with touches
of pottery, painted pieces
and quilted items. Artwork
intermingles with holiday


greenery.
Wreaths, table center-
pieces, swags and smaller
ornamental trees are on dis-
.play and for sale. Hand-
painted cards from five VAC
artists have special touches
of Venice for local senti-
ment.
Take a break at the Gar-
den Party Cafe, the VAC's
own restaurant, and enjoy
lunch while thinking about
how to create your own hol-
iday decorations.
A special group of cards
by artist Tatiana McKinney
of Venice will be sold. Mc-
Kinney, who is well into her
90s, has had her work dis-
played in the Vatican and is
represented in several ma-
jor museums around the
world. The hand-painted
cards are decorated with
everything from sparkles to
feathers.
Until two years ago, she
taught classes at the VAC.
She.continues to turn out
the kind of work that earned
her an international reputa-
tion.
Debbie Campbell, VAC
board member and artist,
made blocks of light that
look like wrapped gifts. She
covered these glass pieces
with ribbon and gold snow-
flakes to make unusual ac-
cent illumination pieces for
the lanai or throughout the
-home.
Holiday trees
Tonya Sauppe, artist and
also a board member, has
again made two of her large
designer trees to decorate
the center. Both are for sale
for a home or business.
Proceeds from the tree sale


Friday, Dec. 7, and will fea-
ture the Madrigal Singers
from Venice High School.
Tickets are $30 for adults
and $15 for children 12 and
under. Refreshments by the
Garden Party Cafe will be
served.
For the first time, the
Venice Art Center will give
working people a special
night to shop. Tuesday, Dec.


Gallery exhibit
An abstract exhibit will
be featured in the main
gallery, continuing until
Dec. 21.
The show will be of
expressive work that has a
more emotional content,
said Sue Turconi, who jud-
ged the exhibit.
The work is in mixed
mediums with local artists

benefitVAC programs.
Her Florida fantasy theme
tree in the ,center of the gal-
lery is an 8-foot pre-lit artifi-
cial spruce covered with
gold and red- poinsettias.
Fluffy garland gives it a fan-
tasy feel.
Romance is the theme of
a 5-foot, pre-lit rose-cov-
ered tree that is also for sale.
The theme is Victorian and
decorations of roses and
pearls give viewers the feel-
ing of a romantic setting. It
is located at the entrance of


the center.
If you have a tree but lack
the inclination to decorate it,
Sauppe will come to your
home, for a fee, to decorate it.
Sauppe said that if a cor-
porate sponsor would like
to purchase the larger tree
for its office or business, the
tree can be taken down at
any time and moved to the
site.
Holiday happenings
The annual holiday tea at
the VAC will be 3:30 p.m.,


11, from 5:30-8 p.m., the
VAC will keep its doors open
for late shoppers. The gal-
lery shop has jewelry, pot-
tery, quilt items and artwork
from local artists. Gift wrap-
ping is available at no addi-
tional charge.
A light buffet catered by
the Garden Party Cafe will
be available for an addition-
al fee.
For reservations to any of
these holiday events, call
the VAC at 485-7136. The
center is at 390 S. Nokomis
Ave., on the island.

.and a combination of all
working materials.
"The pieces will go well
with the Christmas items in
the Solo Gallery," Turconi
said. "Sort of a capitalist
euphoria."
Turconi said that bright
and colorful abstract art-
work is a fit setting for what
is considered the most pop-
ular holiday of the year for
many families.

Book your historic Venice trolley tour now


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Holly the Trolley
One of the best ways to
see what is so special about
the planned community of
Venice is to take a trolley
tour with an expert from the
Venice Archives and His-
torical Collection.
In past years, that has
been easier said than done
because the tours fill up so
quickly. For 2008, eight
tours have been scheduled
so far. Tours will depart at
9:30 and 11 a.m., from the
Triangle Inn, 351 S. Nassau
St. in Venice on four Sat-
urdays: Jan. 26, Feb. 9 and
24 and March 8.
Tickets are $15 per per-


son and will go on sale at
the Triangle Inn beginning
Wednesday, Jan. 2, and
every Monday, Tuesday and
Wednesday thereafter,
10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Consider that each trol-
ley holds just 30 people and
that several of the tours will
likely be sellouts before Jan.
3. You will need to pay with
a check or cash as the
archives does not accept
credit cards.
For information, call the
archives at. 486-2487.
Forever and ever
"Forever Plaid," a nostal-
gic off-Broadway hit of the
1990s, offers many "Mom-
ents to Remember" through
Dec. 29 in theYvonne T. Pink-
erton Theatre at the Venice


Little Theatre, 140W. Tampa
Ave. The story is about four
male singers killed on their
way to a big concert in the
'50s. Miraculously revived
for one show, they have the
chance to .do the show that
fate canceled on them. The
Plaids is modeled after such
groups of that era as The
Four Lads, the Four Fresh-
men and the Four Aces and
other groups often seen on
the old Ed Sullivan show.
The music also is from
those days and includes
"Magic Moments" and
"Three Coins in a Fountain"
among others. Steven Flaa
directs with Ken Crisp as
musical director. The four-
some contains Brian Fort-
ner, David P Brown, Nidal
Zarour and Tom Westlake.


Tickets are available by
phone at 488-1115 or at the
box office in person
10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday th-
rough Saturday. The box
office opens one hour before
all shows for walk-up tickets,
Tickets also are available 24
hours a day at venicestage

"Season's Greetings: Stor-
ies to Put a Little Holiday in
Your Heart," will be present-
ed at Lemon Bay Playhouse
Saturday, Dec. 15, at 7:30
p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 16, at
2 p.m.
The shows will be per-
formed by members of the
Readers Theater of Lemon
Bay Playhouse and include
selections from '"A Child's
Christmas in Wales," by Dy-
lan Thomas; a humorous
look at the difference bet-


ween Hanukkah and Christ-
mas; and excerpts from Tru-
man Capote's heartwarming
"A Christmas Memory"
among others.
Tickets are $5 plus a non-
perishable food item for the
Englewood Helping Hand
food bank. Be sure to check
the expiration date on food
items. When the Food Bank
gets out-of-date items, it is
left with the burden of dis-
posal as well as a possible
shortage of needed items.

Tour of Homes was held
Sunday, Dec. 2, 2007.
This year, 34 residents
opened their historic
homes for the public to
view. All the homes are
decorated for the holidays,
all. of the holidays, and
admission was just $35 per
person.
Proceeds went to the
unfortunate Harry Charles
Winston III family, who
bought their daughter
Penelope a Thoroughbred
horse but could not afford
to build a barn on their
estate, how sad.
ERCHKDDBBBPYTH
Tour of Homes Director
Agatha Wellonpop thanks
the public for its response.
"It was an opportunity


On with the show, this is it


for the general public to
pay to see some beautiful
homes that they could
never dream of affording to
buy. Most of the people
who come to our tour
couldn't even afford the
cost of the decorations in
these homes. But at least
they got to see them. And,
more important, with their
help we have reached our
goal and poor little
Penelope will have a barn
for the horse her parents
got her for the holidays,"
Wellonpop said.
Wellonpop was asked if
she knew if all the dogs had
been rounded up.
"Yes they have. We want
to apologize to the nice
people who toured our
homes and we, the mem-'
bers of the committee,
want to say it was unfortu-
nate and untimely that
Ecineville Animals Out of
Control Officer Timmy
"Mad Dog" Breanowski let
those dogs get loose," said
Wellonpop.
Seems Breanowski was
over on Growe Street, a
block away from the last
home on the tour.
Breanowski in his Animals
Out of Control Animal
Containment Vehicle was


finishing his shift after cap-
turing 28 wild dogs.
"I was sure I latched that
there door, but guess I did-
n't," said Breanowski.
More than 100 visitors
to the last home on the
tour of homes scattered
through yards, into alley-
ways and onto the tops of
cars as the wild pack of
dogs attacked indiscrimi-
nately.
Our congratulations to
Penelope.

Brownie Troop 542 celebrated Veterans Day with local veterans at VFW Post 8118 on East
Venice Avenue. Commander James O'Brien and his officers answered many questions and told
the Brownies about their experiences in the military. The girls sang "My Country 'Tis of Thee"
and presented the veterans with a thank-you card for all they have given to their country.
Afterward the vets served the girls cookies and milk.


Is bigger better?


BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST CONTRIBUTOR

Here are a few facts that
were turned up by the
4 Smithsonian magazine.
They point out how many
, of our habits are changing.
In 1950, the average new
house provided 290 square
feet per family member. By
2003, that number had
tripled, to 893 square feet.
U.S. households watch
TV an average of eight


hours and 11 minutes per
day, up from six hours and
45 minutes in 1980. This
coupled with the average TV
screen increasing in size by


about an inch per year; the
average is now 27 inches.
The average American
produces 4.5 pounds of
solid waste per day, a 150-
percent increase since 1960.
There are many more
examples, but what it
points out is we Americans
are consuming an increas-
ing amount of natural
resources, and generating
more waste.
The planet it's worth
saving.

Trouble may be his name, but he is really a sweetie. Trouble
was a stray being fed by a gentleman who. recently passed

plaining. Now he needs to find his forever home. Call EARS

'Locavores' aren't only about food Uans &w r kw mtcunamc ,


BY JOE GIORGIANNI
HUMOR COLUMNIST


Recently, Marsha Mercer, a columnist
and bureau chief for Media General News
Service, wrote a piece about buying only
locally grown foodstuff, such as fruits and
vegetables. Said it was good for the local
economy, and I think she has a point.
But have you tried buying locally grown
things, like bananas, pineapples and
apples, in the grocery store lately? It's all but
impossible.
To test my hypothesis that it is nearly
impossible, I went to a nearby supermarket
and wandered the produce department. I
did the usual customer things, like squeez-
ing the tomatoes, smelling the melons and
pulling a grape or two from various bunch-
es nicely displayed on multiple racks. Then,
I looked for labels that might tell me the ori-
gin of the things I was mutilating.
I would have continued my search
longer, but the manager saw me as I ran my
finger through a tomato and he asked me to
leave the store.
Entering another store, I decided that
perhaps I should simply look for labels, but
to my surprise the only things I found labels
on were apples and bananas.
I told the nice man who was stacking
oranges into one of those pyramids you see
on television that I was a "locavore" and
would like to know what was grown nearby.
He said he was not familiar with the loca-
vore religion, but if there was a locavore
church in town, he might be interested in
joining, as it sounded intriguing and
healthful.
Three hours later, and after an exhaust-
ing morning trying to find locally grown
apples and other fruits and vegetables, I
decided that there is only one way to be a
true locavore, and that is to raise my own
fruits and vegetables.
My next stop was at a nursery to pur-


chase plants necessary for raising those
things that would make me a full-fledged
locavore. Some guy wearing an apron with
the slogan on the front reading, "If it grows,
it needs water," offered to help.
I told him that I was a locavore and need-
ed his assistance. He then asked me what
country locavores come from. I told him
Locavoria, and that seemed to satisfy him,
except he did say that he had never met
anyone from Locavoria before.
Arriving at my home with all the plants
the guy who thought I was from Locavoria
said I would need, I needed to find a place
to put them, which was difficult, as the
homeowners association in my neighbor-
hood has rules about planting anything
that would mess up the neighborhood.
I appealed my case to the board of direc-
tors but could not convince them that dig-
ging up my yard to plant potatoes and
banana trees would be good for the econo-
my. So, I did the next best thing by moving
all the plants into the house.
My wife, who by this time has totally
given up on my attempt to be a locavore,
patted me on the head and told me that I
could not plant potatoes and/or banana
trees inside the house, as they need lots of
water. And, since we have water restrictions
in our area, it would not be a good idea. My
wife, always the practical one.
So, irrespective of what the columnist
from Media General News Service says, it
just ain't possible to be a true locavore.
However, if anyone lives in a non-deed-
restricted area where there are no water
restrictions, and has an understanding
wife, I do have a lot of plants for sale at a
very good price.
My wife said if I don't sell them, I'm in
deep trouble. I'm thinking I just might pack
up and move to Locavoria. At least I could
eat locally grown food.

ROTC students help with Christmas walk


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER
Votive candles will light
up the streets downtown at
the Christmas walk on Th-
ursday, Dec. 6. Students of
Venice High School Reserve
Officer Training Corps will
place the luminaries on
Venice and Nokomis aven-
ues as a community service
project.
"We started doing this in
2003 and wanted to contin-
ue," saidkSgt. Maj. Stan Ro-
berts.
Roberts said that getting


involved in community
projects is one way the
ROTC students show their
support.
The ROTC students will
be looking their best on
Thursday in full dress-blue
uniforms. They will be fill-
ing the bags up with sand
and placing them on the
streets by 5 p.m. The light-
ing will take place at sun-
down.
You might also see them
helping individuals navi-
gate around the island dur-
ing the busy Christmas
walk.


"ROTC students will help
with street crossing and at
traffic intersections that
night," said Roberts.
There will be 25 boys and
girls participating.
Helping the community
in other ways this season,
ROTC members are in-
volved in the Marine Corps
League's Toys for Tots pro-
gram.
ROTC students separate
the toys by age categories
and get them ready for
pickup by the Marine Corps
League.
They also monitor park-


ing at home.games atVenice
High School and school
functions. After the games
the students clean up the
stadium.
ROTC is geared to help
students decide whether a
military career is for them.
There are also ROTC schol-
arships available for stu-
dents who wish to attend
college.
'About 7 percent of the
students go into the. mili-
tary," Roberts said.

FROM MCC

Sara H. Delesie, assistant
professor in the Manatee
Community College nursing
department, was named a
lifetime member of the Flo-
rida Nursing Students' As-
sociation (FNSA). It is the
highest honor the associ-
ation can bestow and Dele-
sie is only the 27th person to
merit the award in the
FNSA's 53-year history.
With MCC for five years,
Delesie organized a Student
Nurses Association chapter
at MCC Bradenton. In addi-
tion to supporting and men-
toring MCC students, she
has encouraged faculty in-
volvement. She was former-
ly advisor to an SNA chapter


at Hillsborough Community
College (HCC) and has sup-
ported the FNSA at local,
state and national levels for
more than 15 years.
"My love for SNA and stu-
dent nurses will continue as
the organization represents
the core of professionalism
for the nursing student,"
said Delesie.
Delesie was presented
with the award during the
FNSAs Annual Convention,
which was held Oct. 30-Nov.
2 in Orlando.
Delesie, R.N., has an' as-
sociate in science degree
from HCC, a bachelor's de-

SVENICE REGIONAL
MEDICAL CENTER


S An inflamed
piriformis muscle can
cause pain in the
buttocks, which leads
I many to mistake it for
sciatica. The piriformis muscle
helps stabilize the hip, leg, and
pelvic area. It can become inflamed
from sitting too long or rotating the
leg outward (as when driving). With
inflammation, the muscle can harden
and press on the sciatic nerve, causing
sciatic pain in the buttocks that
radiates down the leg to the ankle or
middle of the foot. It may be felt in
the lower back, as well. Sitting
usually makes the pain worse
while standing or walking often
makes it feel better. Chiropractic
treatment can help to relieve the
cause and effects of an inflamed
piriformis muscle.
