Fire service fee gets airing Council says no

_______________short-term rentals


City council adopts a
nonbinding resolution
declaring its intent to
studythe issue.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Venice City Council mem-
bers got their first look at a
proposed fire service fee
Tuesday.
They passed a nonbind-
ing resolution that calls for
further study of a fire service
fee, also called a special
assessment.
City Manager Marty
Black explained the resolu-
tion does not authorize the
move from the current ad
valorem tax to a service fee
-it only adopts a monetary
collection vehicle should
council decide later to move
forward with the fee.
The resolution is due to
the tax appraiser's office by
Jan. 1. It serves as the city's
official notice to the county
of its intent to consider the
fee.
Without the resolution,
the city would have been
unable to institute a fee in
time for it to appear on the
November 2008 tax bill.
"I just look at this as a
safety value," said Council
Member John Simmonds,
anticipating property tax
reforms.
Fire Chief John Reed and
consultant Camille Clark,
with Government Services
Group, reviewed key com-
ponents of the fee, and pos-
sible policy considerations.
Moving the cost of pro-
viding fire service to an
assessment could free up
the city to take other fiscal
steps should state legislative
efforts result in future cut-
backs.

It was a no-brainer for city
council- short-term rentals
aren't an allowable use in an
RSF-1 (residential, single-
family) zoning districts.
That was the unanimous
ruling council handed down
after another marathon
meeting on TUesday, Dec. 11.
The ruling overturns a
planning commission deci-
sion that overruled an
August 2006 administrative
ruling by Planning and Zon-
ing Director Tom Slaughter.
Slaughter ruled residen-
tial homes bought up and
operated as short-term
rentals by Stephen Milo and
family members, Venice
Sunshine LLC, Alan Evans,
Cecelia Evans, Venice Real
Estate Investors, Venice
HSD, Venice Beach Invest-
ors and Daniel J. Cohen
aren't an allowable use in
single-family residential
neighborhoods.
Milo and the others ap-
pealed Slaughter's decision
before the Venice Planning
Commission on May 1 and
May 16, and won.
The earlier decision turn-
ed on a property rights
argument by Milo's attor-
ney, Richard Rumrell.I
Presenting with Rumrell
Tuesday was Cindy Her-
nandez of the Pacific Legal
Foundation, a nonprofit
legal assistance fund that
supports individual proper-
ty rights against "overreach-
ing" governmental entities.
Hernandez said her orga-
nization was following the
Venice case and a similar
one in Florida over a short-
term rental regulation.
Undefined
Rumrell also argued the


city zoning regulations did-
n't directly address short-
term rentals, and thus pro-
hibiting rentals was "a tak-
ing," a legal term signifying
the an economic loss that
required compensation.
He even went so far as to
deny the transient nature of
short-term rentals, because
technically the city code
doesn't define "transient"
either.
Slaughterlater saidthe city
zoning code "doesn't define
nuclear power plants, but
that doesn't mean they are
allowed because they aren't
defined in the code."
Rumrell acknowledged
the city had the right to
determine whether, short-
term rentals should be
allowed, but hadn't done so,
and thus his clients would
have to be compensated for
taking away the right to rent
their property.
'Inescapable
conclusion'
An independent analysis
of the city's land develop-
ment code, paid for by
Slaughter's attorney, Andrea
E. Zelman, hired by the city,
further supported Slaught-
er's original, administrative
order.
"There is no support for
the opinion that short-term
resort/transient lodging is
an appropriate or permitted
activity in low density sin-
gle-family residential neigh-
borhoods," said David W.
Depew, with Morris-Depew
Associates Inc.
Transient uses are men-
tioned, Depew wrote, but
not in the context of low-
density neighborhoods.

transitional uses in the low-

Board slates Venice


High rebuild for 2011


Hard luck hits Venice grandmother


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

Barring any unforeseen prob-
lems, the rebuilding of Venice
High School should begin in the
2011-12 school year.
That was the prediction of
Scott Lempe, associate superin-
tendent of Sarasota County
Schools, who spoke to members
of the School Advisory Committee
atVHS Monday, Dec. 10.
During his' status report on
capital improvement projects at
VHS, Lempe said construction of
the Wellness Center is a "good
news story," and a "done deal."
The school board was scheduled
to approve the center's architect
and construction manager at its
meeting Dec. 11; architectural
drawings will be submitted in
January or February; and ground-
breaking is scheduled for spring
2008.
After careful consideration of
where to locate the new center,
factoring in discussions about
rebuilding the high school, Lempe
said the school board is consider-
ing building it beside the gym so it
will not be in the way during the
rebuild.
"It is going to happen. The new
Wellness Center has been picked up
by the school board," Lempe said.


Uncertainties
Lempe outlined several chal-
lenges facing the school board
regarding the rebuild of VHS and
other capital projects, most of
which hinge on the results of the
"super exemption" referendum
next month. If the homestead ex-
emption is increased, the amount
of tax monies going to schools
would be reduced and the school
board would 'have to find other
sources to fund some of these
capital projects.
Lempe listed competing inter-
ests for funds in projects currently
under way including Riverview
High. School; the technical high
school and a technical center;
Middle School EE and Elementary
I in North Port; and the heating,
ventilation and air conditioning
system at Taylor Ranch and fu-
ture projects.
First on the future list is the
VHS rebuild, which carries equal
ranking with a Booker High
School rebuild. Also listed is Sara-
sota High School remodel, a sec-
ond high school in North Port and
a technical high school at Man-
atee Community College in Ven-
ice.

ton said SAC members would like

It hasn't been a good year for
Dolores Freund, 76.
Her house is about to go into
foreclosure and her car repos-
sessed because she is too ill to pay
her bills. All she wants to do is go
back to cleaning houses.
Her problems began in July
when she underwent surgery to
remove a cancerous kidney. The
procedure left her so weak she
could no longer work. Without a
paycheck she couldn't support
either herself or her granddaugh-
ter, Jennifer Nutter.
In October, she said, her
daughter and a friend took her
checkbook and cleaned out her
bank account.
Nutter, 15, aVenice High School
student, missed classes because
she was taking care of her grand-
mother. After awhile her grand-
mother's medical condition got
too much for her and she was
almost on the verge of a break-
down.
With the help of the Salvation
Army, Freund's Florida Power &
Light bill was paid, but not her
water bill. Friends bring bottled
water every day to her home and
the two women take showers at a
neighbor's place.
"I have called Children's Serv-
ices about the water," Barbara
Delgato, Venice High School guid-

ance counselor said, "but they
haven't done a thing."
Delgato is thinking about
adopting Nutter for Christmas to
make sure she has some new
clothes for the holidays. She said
that Sarasota County Children's
Services closed the case after it
provided Freund with referral
material.
"It's tragic what is happening to
this family," Delgato said. "It's a
reflection of the whole economy."
Subordination
Cindy Wofford, at American


General mortgage, the company
holding Freund's mortgage, ad-
vised her to contact Stephanie
Hendrix of Mortgage Approval
Services, North Port. She said that
Hendrix might be able to find a
creative way to solve her financial
difficulties.
Hendrix's heart went out to
Freund. After a little research, she
thought a subordination loan
would be a way to save the home
for Freund and her granddaugh-
ter.

Drought
worst in state
BY CHRISTY ARNOLD
ENGLEWOOD EDITOR
You're living in one of the
driest places in Florida.
The Keetch Byram Dro-
ught Index, which measures
moisture level in the soil,
indicates Sarasota and Char-
lotte counties desperately
need rain- and lots of it.
Friday's numbers are only
expected to keep climbing
throughout the week.
The NationalWeather Ser-
vice doesn't predict a chance
of rain until at least Thursday.
Even then, it's only a 20-per-
cent chance.
The weekend will offer
great weather for outdoor
activities, but that, of course,
means bad news as the threat
of brush fires increases.
The chance of seeing sub-
stantial rainfall this month is
also unlikely.

Heroes honored for saving a life


Sarasota snuffs out most beach smoking


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

Nancy Swallow and John
Jessel received Above and
Beyond awards for acts of
heroism by Scott Lempe at
the Dec. 11 meeting of the
Sarasota County School
Board.
Both heroes work at the
school district's purchasing
department in Osprey.
Swallow heard a loud
noise Nov. 28 outside her
office and ran to investigate
it. She saw a car had crashed
through fencing and was
moving into a retention
pond with the woman dri-
ver still in the vehicle.
Swallow ran back inside
to get help from Jessel and
call 9-1-1. Jessel ran out,
crawled under the fence
and waded into higher than
waist-high water toward the
woman, who had emerged
from the car and was appar-
ently in mild shock. He got
the lady to swim safely to
the side of the pond until
rescuers arrived.
A sheriff's deputy was
standing on the other side of
the pond with a shotgun
ready just in case an alligator
would appear, Lempe said.
Peace education
During public comment,


several citizens spoke up for
the need for a systematic,
comprehensive peace edu-
cation program for all stu-
dents in the school district.
Dr. Kathy Kleinlein, new-
ly elected chair, said the dis-
trict has several pieces of
such a program in place.
She said the district
annually talks to students
about safety and safe sex
and has groups in which
student leaders qualify for
the Students Taking Active
Roles program and are able
to participate on an adviso-
ry board and learn to work
toward goals.
"This district has preven-
tion programs and will con-
tinue with them, and we'll
work to get new informa-
tion and use it with the
guidance of Dr. Norris,"
Kleinlein said.
Arlene Sweeting, a mem-
ber of the Peace Education
and Action Center, said she
is happy that Kleinlein said
the board is open to part-
nering with it.
"That is what we were
looking for and we are opti-
mistic for the future," she
said.
Wellness Center
Taking action under the
consent agenda, the board
rescinded previous approv-


als for the Venice High
School Wellness Center and
gave new ones, including
naming the project archi-
tect as Waterford Compa-
nies, which will also serve as
construction administrator.
The Wellness Center was
proposed in 2003 but was
delayed for various reasons
and revived in 2007. While
the partners redevelop the
project scope, cost and sit-
ing, the board found it nec-
essary to rescind the previ-
ous actions taken in 2003
and approve the project
with current information.
Other business
Board members voted to
approve the following:
Advertising a new policy
for Veterans Day activities to
show commitment to the
nation's veterans and provide
direction to school-based
administrators and staff.
Advertising changes to
the policy on health insur-
ance premiums with sug-
gested revisions to bring the
policy into compliance with
state laws.
The next meeting of the
school board will be Jan. 8,
6:30 p.m., at 1980 Landings
Blvd., Sarasota.

The Sarasota County
Commission has limited
smoking on public beaches.
Smokers will have desig-
nated places to puff in park-
ing areas and picnic shel-
ters. Violators will face a $97
fine.
The ordinance passed
Tuesday will also have a


provision
that pro-
hibits fish-
ing in desig-
nated swim-
ming areas.
Commis-
sioner Jon
Thaxton
voiced the
only reser-
vation in the
unanimous
decision of
the com-
mission.
"I think
on Venice
Beach and
Siesta Beach
we need at
least one
area on the
beach that's


Staub

a designated


area," Thaxton said. "It
doesn't relegate the smokers
to a hot parking lot, which is
the only choice they have, as


the shelters are frequently
used."
Commissioner Shannon
Staub moved for approval of
the ordinance, ,citing a
number of letters turned in
during the public hearing
supporting it.
"The best one here says,
'The beach is not an ashtray
and shouldrft be treated as
one,' Staub said. "I think
we're saying smoke where
it's most appropriate and
we're designating the most
appropriate place. This ordi-
nance will make our beaches
shine and be more of a jewel
than they are now."
Didn't happen
Chair Nora Patterson
supported the motion, cit-
ing earlier failed attempts to
educate and encourage the
smoking public to responsi-
bly govern itself on public


beaches.
"It just didn't happen,"
Patterson said. "Even to the
point that Keep Sarasota
Beautiful
S. had volun-
.i r' teers on the
beach dis-
. J tributing
-- ashtrays.
Those same
Volunteers
wound up
Ss i f t ing
Patterson through the
sand for cig-
arette butts."
The ordinance will go
into effect sometime be-
tween January and March.
"It all depends on how
quickly we get the signage
in," said Rob LaDue, super-
visor of beaches and natural
areas.

$86 million to protect land


WEDNESDAY, DEC. 12, 2007


Clean sweeps


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER,
Thursday could be a big
day in the annals of Sara-
sota County land preserva-
tion.
That day an eight-mem-
ber Acquisition and Restor-
ation Council affiliated
with state land conserva-
tion program Florida For-
ever will decide whether
to recommend the $86 mil-
lion purchase of 18,743
acres of environmentally
sensitive land.
"They will vote on whe-
ther they believe it should
be added to the Florida For-
ever priority list," said Chris
Cate, spokesman for the
Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection, aff-
iliated with Florida Forever.
"The land is composed of
three ownerships in two dis-
tinct tracts the Hi Hat
Ranch to the northwest (of
Myakka River State Park)
and the combined Walton
and Longino ranches to the'
southeast."
The council consists of
members from the Depart-
ment of CommunityAffairs,
the Department of Environ-
mental Protection, the Di-
vision of Forestry, the Flor-
ida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission and

Florida Forever pays out
$300 million each fiscal
year.
Joint effort
The deal follows hard
upon a recent combined
purchase forged by Sara-
sota County and the South-
west Florida Water Manage-
ment District of two par-
cels of land totaling 12,376
acres from Mabry Carlton
Ranch for $51.8 million,
according to figures provid-
ed by the district.
The additional areas
jointly connect and pro-
tect a contiguous system
of conservation areas in
Sarasota County, according
to information supplied by
Cate. The conservation ease-
ment would add to the
approximately 121,000 acres
of land currently serving as
protection for the Myakka
River and Charlotte Harbor
Estuary.
The fair market value of.
the property, according to
the tax assessor, is currently
estimated at more than
$85.6 million, Cate said. He
said the land will be subject
to another appraisal once


the deal is approved and goes
into the actual purchase
phase, which could happen
as soon as February.
Department of Environ-
mental Protection staff has
indicated the project is ideal
for protection under a con-
servation easement. About
half the project is currently
used for cattle ranching, sod,
row crop and citrus farming
and harvesting pine and cab-
bage palms. An easement
could be structured to allow
continued commercial ven-
tures there, while protecting
the natural areas on the
remainder of the property.
According to Cate, the
Florida Forever land acqui-
sition program is the world's
largest conservation land-
buying program and as of
December 2006, the state of
Florida has protected more
than 535,643 acres of land
with $1.8 billion in Florida
Forever funds.

According to the
Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety,
approximately two
million whiplash claims are
filed annually. Neck injuries
are the most commonly reported
crash-related injury. In particular,
whiplash injuries result from the
rapid snapping back of a person's
head during a collision. These
injuries, which can occur at crash
speeds as low as 'ten miles per hour,
hyperextend the neck and damage
nerves and ligaments, often resulting
in pain and lack of mobility. The
best way to prevent a whiplash
injury is to position your vehicle's
head restraint so that the top of
your ear horizontally aligns with
a point in the middle of the head
restraint, no more than three
inches away from the back of
your head.

review audit report


BY SUSAN CAIRO
STAFF WRITER


The Venice Housing Aut-
hority board will review a
recent audit by Malcolm
Johnson & Company at a
special meeting at 5 p.m.
Thursday, Dec. 13.
The audit covers the op-
erations of the VHA from
April 1, 2006 to March 31,
2007.
Ben Bell, VHA Housing
and Urban Development
contractor, said that previ-
ous audits of this type had
not been done in a timely
fashion.
"Normally you have an
accountant review the
books before the fiscal year
ends," he said.
The two people who ran
the VHA during that period
were Deborah Bevins, exec-
utive director, and Maritza
Lago, secretary. Bevins, a
certified public accountant,


completed half of the audit;
the portion of the audit deal-
ing with the period from
October 2006 to March 2007
was not finished until late this
year, by Cornwell Associa-
tions Accounting.
According to HUD regu-
lations, the review of the
completed audit must be
accomplished by Dec. 15.
"If we submit it after the
year ends, it will go against
theVHA and there will be no
way to correct it under HUD
guidelines," Bell said.
The audit has nothing to
do with the recent ann-
ounced proposal to relocate
VHA residents and redevel-
op the housing community.
Bell said the information
found in this report simply
verifies the procedures used
in running the operation
during the specific period.
The VHA annual plan
and redevelopment pro-
posal will be brought before


the board for a full discus-
sion on Jan. 4.
The monthly board
meeting will be held on
Thursday, Dec. 20, at 6 p.m.
Wrong address
Renee Michelle Thomas
listed her address as 254
North Grove Street, Venice,
when she was arrested re-
cently for the sale of a con-
trolled substance. That's ac-
tually her parents' unit.
"This person is not a res-
ident of the VHA," said Bell.
Thomas actually lives in
Sarasota. Bell said that if she
were a resident, or a minor
child livingwith parents, then
her parents would have a
problem with their residency
at the VHA.
The VHA is required to do
background checks on peo-
ple when they apply for res-
idency.

Drop the "interim" label
from her title; she's staying.
Senior Planner Debbie
Marks, who has been filling
in as coordinator for the
Englewood Community
Redevelopment Agency,
formally accepted the job
Dec. 4.
Marks was elated when
offered the post.
'AboVtthree mon lis into
it, I mtiade up my mind I
wanted to stay," Marks said.
"I enjoy the energy and pas-
sion of the people in En-
glewood who want to make


this a better place. I fell in
love with the job."
Marks first accepted the
position on an interim basis
shortly after former coordi-
nator Chris Davis left the
job last April to become
deputy director of Housing
and Community Develop-
ment. Marks worked for the
city of Sarasota for 19 years
and recently focused on
building a community, Ken-
sington Park, in Lake Sara-
sota. In addition, she partic-
ipated in the Laurel neigh-
borhood plan several years
ago.
Marks sees challenges in
her job particularly in the


limited funds that could
result from passage of the
so-called "super exemp-
tion" referendum on Jan. 29.
'After the January vote
takes place, we'll see how
much money we'll get for
improvements, such as
stormwater," Marks said,
adding the agency is also
looking into the legality of
floating bonds for revitaliza-
tion efforts.
"I'm very excited," Marks
said. "I came in saying this is
just tet~poraIy but I'm hav-
ing a great time and look
forward to wonderful things
happening in Englewood."

LE Tuim i'EtM-vv rc H iA IT W


LET 'EM HAVE IT: WHAT WAS THE TOP NEWS STORY IN VENICE IN 2007? CALL US
AT 207-1111.


I'll take unleaded, please


Leaded. I went to buy a Christmas tree in a box, I got it
home and I opened it up and it smelled so bad. Then I got
residue on my hands. I then looked at a slip that was in the
box. The slip said, "Wash hands after putting this together
and don't let your children touch it because there is lead in
it." I went to another store and asked about their lights, and
they had lead in them, too. Our government isn't keeping
up with it. We need more help, more checking on China. I
can't even buy for Toys for Tots because I can't find anything
that isn't made in China.


Exasperated. I'm a 65-
year-old senior here on the
island of Venice, and I am
really sick and tired of hear-
ing these old seniors. I call
them old because that's just
what they act like. They've
forgotten what it's like to be
young and a professional in
businesses and retail. We
need growth in this area or
the whole downtown is
going to close up. I'm sick
and tired because they don't
even try to help these mer-
chants down on the avenue.
I've been there 40 years, had
a business there and I know
it's important. Even when
the circus was here, it
helped the businesses.
People coming in to see the
circus and then waiting for
all the traffic to leave, they'd
go downtown and shop. I
had a little shop, and they
did shop there. When they
left, my business went down
and it has not been the
same downtown because
we have nothing here to
draw the people -just a lit-
tle bit during the season
when the snowbirds come,
but then during the sum-
mer, it is so bad. They think
about their golf courses and
things, but they don't think
about the younger people
living here; and without
them, the whole Venice area
would close up. They
should know this. These let-
ters and comments about
not letting Venice grow ...
we've got to have growth to
keep our downtown good
and active. You've got to
think about the merchants
and the young professionals
here. They all want to stay.
You want an old people's


home here? I'm exasperat-
ed. I hope and pray the new
council members that have
come in will keep these
business people in their
minds and prayers because
we're going to need them.
Tomorrow's news. Head-
line: Venice airport closes to
aviation traffic. The Venice
airport has now become the
largest scrub jay landing air-
field in Florida. However,
landing approach patterns
for runway 13 have been
changed as residents in the
Golden Beach area com-
plain of too many bird
droppings on the roof tops.
Headline: Downtown Ven-
ice parking problems solv-
ed. With the closing of nu-
merous merchants in the
central business district of
Venice, the need for more
parking has diminished as
customers have no desire to
walk pass the empty, board-
ed-up stores. Headline:
Children's fountain is dis-
mantled. City council sees
this as a waste of water and
money being spent for
enjoyment of a select mi-
nority of the community.
Also being considered are
funding cuts for all parks
and the annual Christmas
parade. Headline: Venice to
becorhe first 55-plus Florida
city. City council has filled
out applications to become
the first ever 55-plus city in
the state of Florida and to be
exempt from having to pay
any real estate property
taxes going to the "school,
board.
Speeding. This is a joke.
We've got excessive speed-
ing day and night on south
Casey Key Road between


FIRST CHOICE

PAIN CARE
SPECIALIZING IN
MEDICATION MANAGEMENT"
S19,411 480-0200 Michael G. VYaffe. M.D.


Albee Road and the jetties.
We have no enforcement,
no patrols and no one gives
out tickets, but the speeding
continues day and night.
Let's hope someone will
take some action on this.
Children first. I love see-
ing all those cute pictures of
the cute kitties and how to
adopt-them and all that; but
down deep, it just irritates
the heck out of me. We're
abandoning children. You
should have pictures of
beautiful children who need
homes and adoptions to
loving families. People are
more important than any
pet on Earth. Of course,
some pet owners would not
agree with me. Humans are
more important, and we
need good foster care for
some of the children. We
need to have adoptions,
rather than all these pet
adoptions.
Reliving. Why does Mr.
Vedder keep reliving the
past city election? All he has
to know is that if the Gon-
dolier Sun were on the bal-
,lot, it would have lost two to
one also.
Pennies. The face of pov-
erty has changed in Sara-
sota. The officials should
use their pennies from
heaven to take care of im-
portant things. Forget about
playgrounds, party time and
ballet. Take care of the most
important things.
Gassed. I would like to
address an issue that many
of us here in Venice may be
encountering. For 17 years,
we've used the same com-
pany for gas. We've leased a
tank from them and have it
filled as needed, usually
once a year. This year we
were astounded to see a
hefty $150 non-user fee
tacked onto our bill. Mind
. ;*.. ..., ,,,. ,,,. ,-%,.!,F.N:- .^.]? .-


you, it has only been 10
months since our last refill.
My husband called the of-
fice and they had no expla-
nation, but took the non-
user fee off. What I would
like to know is, how many
people are experiencing this
same situation and if it is
legitimate? As it is, after
pricing other companies,
this company charges $1
more per gallon than its lo-
cal competitor. I am think-
ing of reporting it to the Bet-
ter Business Bureau. Please
let me know how to contact
someone about this matter.
Concerned. Hurrah for
the voters in Venice who
elected us a new mayor and
two council members. It
shows that people of Venice
are really deeply concerned
about the future of our
beautiful city and are show-
ing that they are sick and
tired of the good old boys.
Three cheers. Thanks
for a recent election mailer
from a local developer sup-
porting the incumbent Ven-
ice City Council members. It
caused the voters to speak
out overwhelmingly against
these mercenary land grab-
bers and their boondoggler
lawyers. Three cheers for the
voters of Venice in taking a
stand against these en-
trenched self-serving folks.
Oz. Mary Kay Ruppel's
take on our recent election
in her column, "Malice in
Wonderland," requires my
response. Briefly, my ver-
sion of the event would be
called "Over the Rainbow"
and would go like this: Once
upon a time, the merry
Munchkins of Venice took
off on the Yellow Brick Road
to find the Wizard of Oz.
Undaunted by the wicked
witch, they meet the Lion,
the Tin Man and the Scare-
crow. These three are filled
with courage, heart and
brains. As evening comes,
the merry Munchkins reach
the land of Oz and all gather
to sing in unison "Over the
Rainbow," sweeter, kinder,
gentler and wiser. That's the

Chatter. Someone from
the media needs to ask our
newly elected mayor and
city council people if


they've been exchanging e-
mails regarding their liaison
responsibilities to the vari-
ous city boards. If they have,
that could be a violation of
the Sunshine Law. I remem-
ber when former mayor
Dean Calamaras had some
alleged improprieties' in-
volving postage and he was
investigated very aggres-
sively. I certainly hope that
all our elected officials, in-

the closing of its store here
in Venice. Did they not tell
their workers like they did in
Sarasota a few years ago, a
week before Christmas? Tell
me what a nice Christmas
present that was for these
poor people. I cannot un-
derstand how they can treat
people like this in Sarasota

it happened to my son also.

That was the same con-
clusion drawn by Council

"The facts here are not
disputed. They are busi-
nesses. It's attracted a large
number of people other
(than what residential code
intended). It's clear they are
prohibited," Moore said.
At stake is a business run
by Milo and others who
bought up 16 homes near
Venice Beach beginning
back in 2004.
Other individuals have
gotten into the business as
well, although City Manager
Marty Black said the num-
ber of short-term rentals
hasn't grown appreciably
over the 24-36 he estimates
already exist.
After losing the appeal,
Rumrell said his client was


prepared to do whatever is
necessary to protect his

"We will take it all the
way up to the Supreme
Court if necessary," Her-
nandez said.
This was the first time

aissance project and one
over a planned bank on

This type of financing
allows a homeowner to con-
vert the equity in a home to
P cash or a line of credit. The
. loan does not become due
- until the borrower either
moves out of the house or
- dies.
Things were moving in
the right direction until
Hendrix discovered that last
February Freund had taken
out a Sarasota County re-
verse-rehabilitation loan for
$42,000. The loan enabled
her to replace her roof,
r floors, cabinets and appli-
ances.
With an outstanding
i mortgage loan of $85,000


and a rehabilitation loan of
$42,000, the county is reluc-
tant to approve an addition-
al loan. American General
even waived $10,000 of
Freund's original loan to
help get approval, but it isn't
enough.
Exception
One of the requirements
for a subordination loan is
there cannot be an out-
standing reverse mortgage,
said Donald Hadsell, head
of the Sarasota Office of
Housing and Community
Development, a joint city of
Sarasota/Sarasota County
agency.


"This department is criti-
cized when we don't run it
like a business,"' he said.
"We have to be sensitive to
the needs of our residents,
but there has to be a fine
line drawn somewhere."
Although he said his
department has to be a
good steward of taxpayer
dollars, he also said there
might be a way to save
Freund's home.
He suggested Freund
write a letter to him
requesting an exception to
the criterion. Once he
receives it, the request will
be reviewed by both the
Sarasota deputy city man-


ager and the deputy county
administrator.
"Upon review of her cir-
cumstances, a determina-
tion will be made," he said.
If the exception cannot
be granted, Hendrix said,
the only other alternative
for Freund would be bank-
ruptcy.
"This is something I real-
ly don't want to do," she
said, "tell a 76-year-old
grandmother she will be
homeless this Christmas
unless she files for bank-
ruptcy."

OUR VIEW


Survey says: Taxes are now most critical issue


ou might think the past year's effort
to cut local property taxes would
have done something to relieve Flor-
idians' concern about rising costs.
But a recent citizen survey conducted by
Sarasota County indicates otherwise.
The 16th annual county opinion sur-
vey showed a sudden and huge rise in
respondents' concern about taxes. Some
21.4 percent of those surveyed ranked
taxes as "the most important issue facing
Sarasota County today."
Taxes edged out perennial winner
population growth/development for the
top spot. It's not that growth issues drop-
ped off the radar screen; that has been
the dominant concern for a decade, but
this year dropped back slightly, to 20.8
percent.


Taxes vaulted to more than 20 percent
from 9 percent in 2006. The issue was also
cited as having the greatest impact on
personal finances.
Respondents ranked the most intense
pressures as: property taxes (29 percent),
homeowner insurance (24 percent) and
personal debt/mortgages (11 percent).
Another question asked which level of
government should have responsibility
for setting the county's tax rate. Local gov-
ernment won out there, with 66 percent
saying that role is best suited to county or
city government. Only 18 percent
thought the state should do it.
Despite the concern over taxes and
finances, the 800 people interviewed for
the annual survey liked where they lived.
Thirty-seven rated the quality of life in


Sarasota County as excellent, 48 percent
as good. Only 12 percent thought it was
fair, and 2 percent poor.
A closer inspection of these numbers,
and some others, indicates a little more
discontent for respondents in the city of
North Port. Forty percent of North Port
respondents mentioned taxes as the
most significant problem.
And while "quality of life" gets excel-
lent marks in the cities of Sarasota (33
percent), Venice (46 percent) and Long-
boat Key (63 percent), only 20 percent of
the North Porters interviewed rated it
excellent. Some 57 percent thought it was
good, but another 20 percent responded
"fair," nearly twice the percentage of any
other city.
North Porters were also far less con-


cerned about population growth and
development: Only 9 percent mentioned
it, while responses ranged from 23 per-
cent in Sarasota to 28 percent in Venice. It
was a major factor in the recent city
council election.
A look at what people were not con-
cerned about also indicates their overall
satisfaction with the quality of life in the
county. On the list of top concerns, crime
got only 2 percent, health care 2 percent

Flashback


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


About 10 years ago Sue
and I went to a Tallahassee
for a Florida State game.
When we arrived we found
that our son Scott had been
in a terrible one-car acci-
dent the evening before.
Scott was driving after
celebrating tfenhessee
Avenue, a ritual before.Flor-
ida State games. He was dri-
ving with three others in the
car. They all had been drink-
ing too much.
Scott hit a tree with his
5.0-liter Ford Mustang. Only
one of the passengers was
wearing a seat belt.
Luckily, Scott and the
other front-seat passenger
weren't badly hurt after hit-
ting a tree and being pro-
pelled into the windshield.
Scott's face was badly scar-
red, requiring a lot of stitch-
es, but he somehow had no
other injuries.
.The two people in the
back seat were hospitalized.
One was fairly seriously hurt
and needed to be in neck
traction for several months
but all of them, thank good-
ness, fully recovered.
There were concerns
about extended jail time
and a lot more.
Scott's case got lost in the
system somehow, so by the
time they got around to
charging him, everyone was
well. He lost his license for
30 days and then was on re-
striction for many months.
Scott had always been
careful not to drive if he had
had too much to drink, but
in this case his destination
was not very far, so he
thought he was OK. It was a
bad mistake that he and we
paid for over several years as
we went through settle-
ments and court cases.
While this was awful, it is
nothing compared to the
tragedy that has happened
to Austin Wright, his family
and his victim and family.
Austin, who is only 21,
also was celebrating, in this
case the Florida Gators' bas-
ketball national champi-
onship. He and others had
too much to drink. Austin
hit a police officer who died
in the accident.
Austin, like Scott, is a very
good kid, with a great fami-
ly. Unfortunately, youth
drinking can have tragic
results.
Austin has been speaking
to youth groups about the
consequences of excessive
drinking. He will likely be
sentenced to prison for


manyyears today. It is tragic
for both families.
My heart goes out to
them. There is a lot that
needs to be learned by our
youth from these and other
examples,.

Monday night Andy Brit-
ton was named school dis-
trict Volunteer of the Year.
Andy has been on the Ven-
ice High School Advisory
Committee, given free legal
advice and helped raise
money for a wide variety of
projects including the Well-
ness Center.
He, spearheaded the for-
mation of the Venice High
School Foundation, which
gives grants to teachers and
scholarships to students
each year. Andy really de-
served this award.

By's Crack: Some
stores are having a rough
time this year. One store
had a sign in the window
that said, "Shop here
and avoid the holiday
crowds."

My comments on the
Waterway Trail generated a
few thoughts about other
,things the trail committee'
has in its plans.
Mike Gippert, one of the
stalwart workers on the
Pepper Patrol (getting rid of
pepper trees), would love to
see some restroom facilities.
Those have been most in
demand is at Caspersen
Beach Park near the pavil-
ion. This has been held up
because the city and county
have not been able to work
out, security and who
should provide the facilities.
I am told they are talking
again to get it resolved.
Another restroom loca-
tion Mike had mentioned
was at a halfway point, like
the parking lot near the
Circus Bridge. I'd guess this
won't happen until we know
what will be developed at
the airport property.
He mentioned it would
be nice to also have bike
rental at the train station
and Caspersen Beach. He
saw a portable trailer on the
Pinellas trail that rents
bikes. That might work.
Incidentally, for the avid
walker, jogger and bike
rider, the mile markers are
now on the trail marking
every one-tenth of a mile.
****** *
The YMCA has decided
to surrender the 1 acre it
had next to the Renaissance
project on Knights Trail. It
will go to Habitat for Hu-
manity, which has the ad-
joining acre. Habitat should
be able to build many
affordable two-story town-
houses in that area.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS



A-nger only hurts the students


Editor:
I am saddened and troubled by the recent comments of
a caller to Let'em Have It. The caller, identified as a "Venice
businessman," expressed his dissatisfaction with the out-
come of the recent election and with the publisher of the
newspaper, Bob Vedder.
I am saddened because this person has chosen to stop
supporting the Rotary Futures Program and apparently
several other nonprofits. But I am troubled and disheart-
ened because this person has chosen to personally take out
his dissatisfaction with the election and obvious anger with
Mr2,Vedder and the newspaper on Rotary Futures and oth-
ers.
Rotary Futures is. a nonprofit post-secondary resource
center serving the students of the Venice area. Bob Vedder
happens to be the chair of the 20-member board of direc-
tors. We have served thousands of students of all ages since
our inception in January 2002 and have made a tremen-
dous impact on the ability of our students to attend and
pay for college, technical or vocational school.
I hope the caller will realize the only people he will be
hurting are the many students and community members
being served by RFP, the YMCA, Senior Friendship Center
and United Way.
I appreciate the caller's pqst support, as do many stu-
dents, parents and community members. I hope time will
weaken his anger with the newspaper and its publisher,
and he will continue to support RFP and the students of our
area.

Take some
shots at
the left, too
Editor:
The person who I have
responded to in his other
tirades wrote, Patriot may-
be, but not a fighter.
Do you notice he does
not mention Clinton or
Kennedy or others on the
left? No, he likes to insult the
right, so that makes me
wonder if the letter writer
taught his kids the same
thing.
That he would not men-
tion those on the left who
have not served shows that
he is a political hack for the
left. Of his other letters;one
in particular I sent to people
serving in Iraq and they said


that he does more good for
the terrorists than our own
people.
This man does not un-
derstand that even Clinton
said he believed that Iraq
had WMDs. Oops, another
waffle.
When Clinton went to
Bosnia, I was behind him.
This man hates anything
Republican.
I do feel sorry for him.
What, pray tell, has any-
thing got to do with his trip
up North? Oh, I guess he
writes the same up there.
Am I happy I served?
You bet. Do I like being
disabled? No. Would I
serve again? Yes. Did he
serve? If he did, I will
salute him but will dis-


agree with his rants.

Crib, tree are
keys to Christmas
Editor:
In 1223, St. Francis of
Assisi simply and joyfully
commemorated the scene
of the Nativity according to
the infancy Gospel, and the
crib thus became one of the
traditional and best-loved
symbols of Christmas.
In the crib we contem-
plate the one who stripped
himself of divine glory in
order to become poor, dri-
ven by love for mankind.
Beside the crib, the
Christmas tree, with its
twinkling lights, reminds us
that with the birth of Jesus
the tree of life has blos-
somed anew in the desert of
humanity. The crib and the
tree: precious symbols,
which hand down in time
the true meaning of Christ-
mas.
Today, amid a con-
sumerist Christmas atti-
tude, we are allowing our-
selves to be stripped of our
traditions, the dearest and
most venerable, the oldest
and sweetest, the truest and
most beautiful, so that care-
lessly, through neglect, we
are abandoning Christ to
follow the latest futile fad.
A sensitive Christian
would not let anything re-
place the crib and Christ-
mas tree. Commemorating
these means passing on the
history of popular piety and
religiosity.
Putting up the crib and
Christmas tree in homes
and public places not in a
folkloric manner but as
symbols of faith, prayer and
offering means rediscov-
ering joy and the solidarity


of friendship, the human
tenderness of relations and
the piety of souls of en-
chanted children and adults.'
In advancement of faith,
family and fraternity may
we all strive to keep Christ
in Christmas.

Not the '90s
I remember
Editor:
I just had to reply to the
writer in the Sunday paper
who asked us to remember
how peaceful it was in the
'90s under President Clin-
ton.
Does anyone remember
the 1993 World Trade Center
bombing? How about our
two American embassies in
East Africa that were bomb-
ed? What about the USS
Cole bombing in Yemen?
I'm sure bin Laden didn't
start planning his attack on
the World Trade Center in
2001; this planning was
going on throughout the
'90s.
Ah yes, the '90s were a
very peaceful time, but only
for people with very short
memories.
I can also remember the
biggest and, by the way,
retroactive tax increase in
the history of this country.
This was forced upon us as
soon as Clinton was elected
and still under a Demo-
cratic Congress.
And finally, let's not for-
get Hillary's health care
debacle. Thank goodness
that her plan was rejected
by most Americans. Most
people realize that "free"
health care will be very
' expensive.

Bus money went to other good uses in Nicaragua


EDITOR'S NOTE: A Gondolier Sun story about a single donor's
gift of a school van struck a nerve with some of the other
donors.
Early last year Venice retiree Louise Brunberg, who built the
Dreams of Louise school in Nagarote, Nicaragua, embarked on
a fundraising campaign to replace the older pickup truck that
served as the school bus. Brunberg set up a committee to track
the funds raised. The effort raised thousands of dollars.
Then something extraordinary happened. Someone donated
enough to cover the entire cost of the van.
What happened to the earlier contributions?
Cathie Wardwell, who stepped in to make the large donation,
responds here on behalf of Brunberg.

efforts of everyone who en- afloat came. from the pock-
husiastically joined hearts etbook of 79-year-old Ven-
J d hands to put on a suc- ice resident Louise Brun-
;essful ftundraiser to benefit berg. Louise started the
he lives of poverty-stricken soup kitchen and school


after seeing the plight of the
incredibly poor families and
children in Nagarote while
on a trip following her re-
tirement as a schoolteacher.
For a decade and a half,
Louise has kept the soup
kitchen and school afloat by
donating something like 75
percent of her monthly
fixed income.
The fundraiser was the.
first time Louise had
enough money to give the
neediest children beds,
roofs, transportation to the
soup kitchen for daily nutri-
tion and a real education at
the school she founded,
(The name of the school is
The Dreams of Louise
School).
For the first time, these
children no longer slept on
the dirt floors in the snake-
infested, insect-ridden vil-
lage and enclaves around
Nagarote. The neediest
families were given zinc
roofs, replacing the card-
board and rusted metal
scraps that had previously
served as their only shelter.
The children and fami-


lies received medicine,
meals and education that
would not exist except for
the fundraiser and money
Louise gives out of her own
pocket every month. Louise
was able to purchase a used
bus to bring in more chil-
dren.
Thanks to the publicity
of the fundraiser, a mutual
friend introduced Louise to
me. (Our family) donated
funds given in memory of
our recently deceased
daughter. I requested that
the donation from The Lib-
by Fund specifically go to
purchasing the bus, paint-
ing it blue to match my
daughter's eyes and naming
it The Libby Bus.
Thanks to the fundraiser
and the publicity generated
from the efforts of a com-
mittee, Louise had enough
money to buy a bus, plus
give beds, roofs and medi-
cine and provide small
scholarships to students
who wanted to continue
their education past the
fourth grade (standard in
Nicaragua). She also en-


abled a mother of four to
receive treatment for breast
cancer, and paid for several
other serious medical needs
of the teachers, parents and
students in Nagarote.
Louise continues to live a
simple life in Venice, visiting
Nagarote periodically. Her
frugal lifestyle enables her
to continue giving nearly all
her fixed income to keep
the soup kitchen and school
afloat. She can't remember
the last time she bought
anything for herself, saying
her life is happier without
the clutter of material pos-
sessions.
Ms. McPherson is bless-
ed to be able to quietly hold
the joy of giving in her heart,
knowing that her intentions
were generated by love for
her fellow man. Her enthu-
siastic chairing of the com-
mittee to raise additional
funds for school fulfilled the
true spirit of giving that the
Holiday season represents.
So many were involved
and Louise is indebted to all
of them who gave of their
time, service and financial


donations.
Below are just a few of
those who made possible
the gift of food, beds, zinc
roofs, transportation, edu-
cation and health care to
the tiny poverty-ridden vil-
lage in Nicaragua:
Meg McPherson Aleta
Huston, Peter Duisberg, Ed
Helm, George Drummond,
Brent Peebles, Steven Schry-
ver, Wycliffe Allen, Mr. and
Mrs. Bill Hershkowitz, the
Rev. Suzanne Nazian, Shir-
ley Babiak and "Awaken-
ing," Bobbie Gleason, Marie
Scott and local businesses
and citizens who donated
items for a silent auction.

Indians end skid with


win over Mustangs


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


Eight of the first nine
Venice High School girls
basketball games have been
on the road. The Indians
escaped that streak close to
.500 with a 49-17 win over
Bayshore High School Tues-
day at Bayshore.
Venice held Bayshore to
six first-half points and just
one third-quarter point as
the Indians cruised to a dis-
trict win on the road.
'Anytime you can win on
the road, it's good," Venice
Head Coach Bruce Reich-
enbach said. "Defensively
we played really well, we're
getting better."
The Indians out-re-
bounded Bayshore 52-33
and turned the ball over 22
times to Bayshore's 33. Jen


Thoehnissen led Venice
with 10 points, followed by
Chloe West with nine and
Lauren Ramey with eight. In
fact, all but one of the
Indians on the travel roster
scored against Bayshore.
"We played everyone a
lot because we have three
games this week and we
want to keep a lot of fresh
legs," Reichenbach said.
Leanne Marsden led the
team in rebounds with 14.
She also finished with six
points. Lindsey Riegsecker
and Kirsten Walchle each
finished with four, Kristen
Jutras finished with three
and Kim Pinkerton finished
with two. Diana Mehserle
was the only player not to
score. A nagging injury lim-
ited her playing time.
With the win, Venice
snaps a three-game losing


streak.
"Sometimes losing be-
comes contagious," Reich-
enbach said. "We definitely
wanted to get the 'W' no
matter what."
Reichenbach went on to
say that his team continued
to struggle shooting the
ball, but that "you can't
complain with a win on the
road. Offensively, it could
have been worse."
Venice moves to 4-5 on
the season looking down
the barrel of a two-game
home stretch and a road
game with Port Charlotte
High School before the win-
ter break.
The Indians take on
North Port High School
Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in the
Teepee, followed by a home
matchup with Port Char-
lotte Saturday.

Solid play from goal-

the first half kept the game
close enough for the; In-

shot Venice 8-2 in the first
half, but Maddams racked
up seven saves to keep the
score at 1-0 at intermission.
If not for a Mustang goal in
the 39th minute, it would
have been tied.
"Lakewood Ranch domi-
nated the first half," Jones
said. "They had us on our
heels but we had a run in
the second half where
things just started to go our
way."
That they did. In the 49th
minute, the Indians tied if
up at 1-1 with a goal from
Joey Carlin. The momen-

the Indians took a 2-1 lead
after a goal by Cawthorne.
A yellow card on Mad-

provided a sufficient scare
for the Indians as Russel Re

short span. But the Venice
defense held strong and
didn't allow another goal.

Venice High School's
Wade Consul and Billy Field
each took second place in
their respective weight class-
es Saturday at the Captain
Archer Memorial Wrestling
Tournament hosted by Char-
lotte High School. Casey
Hayes took third place.
Colton Schuchert and
Andrew Lopez also reached
the podium ir fifth place as
the Indians placed sixth oit
of 16 schools despite being
without wrestlers in four
weight classes.
Captain Archer attracts
some of the best wrestlers in
Southwest Florida each
year, and this year was no
different. Of the 30 of this
year's participants ranked in
the top-11 in the state, 11 of
those placed in the top five
at the state tournament last
season. Five of them were
ranked first in the state and
three were past state cham-
pions.
Consul advanced to the
championship final in the
125-pound weight class to
face one of those state
champions. Three-time de-
fending state champion
Scotti Sentes of Riverdale
High School, who is bound
for Central Michigan Uni-
versity on a wrestling schol-
arship next year, defeated
Consul by an 11-3 major
decision.
Consul, who took fourth
at state last season and is
ranked No. 2 in his weight
class this year, likely won't
be seeing Sentes again. Riv-


erdale competes in Class 1A
while Venice is in Class 2A.
Billy Field came into Cap-
tain Archer as a little-known
in the 152-pound weight
class. He was a regional qual-
ifier last season, but failed to
qualify for state. Field de-
feated Ben Paull of Char-
lotte in the first round, took
a forfeit in the second round
and defeated Nick Sanchez
of Riverdale in the semifi-
nals. Riverdale and Char-
lotte took first and second at
Captain Arcier. "
In the championship
final, Field fell to Francisco
Segarra of Mariner High
School in a close 10-8 deci-
sion.
At 119, it was Venice's
Hayes who. reached the
podium. Hayes fell out of
the championship bracket
by losing in the semifinals
to eventual runner-up
Cody Opsahl of Charlotte.
He pinned Andrew Mal-
szycky,of South Fort Myers
High School in the match
for third place in 4:23.
At 103, Venice's Sch-
uchert took fifth by pinning
Jacob Kovitch of Charlotte
in the consolation final.
Schuchert fell from the
championship bracket in
the second round to even-
tual champion Brayton Lo-
gan of North Fort Myers
High School.
In the consolations, Sch-
uchert wrestled for a little
more than four minutes. He
pinned Frank Bianco of Pal-
metto High School in 1:43.
He pinned Nick Pitingolo of
Gulf Coast High School in
26 seconds. In the consola-


tion final, he. pinned
Kovitch in 2:02.
At 130, Venice's Lopez
had a similar day. He fell out
of the championship brack-
et in the first round to even-
tual runner-up Tyler Grams
of North Port High School.
After a first-routd bye, Lop-
ez strung together three
consecutive wins to take
fifth place.

lers at this year's tournament,

Creatures of the Venice beach


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST

The Venice beach is alive
with creatures in the shal-
low water and on the beach.
The average person that
walks the beach doesn't see
most of the action. If you
have taken a-walk on the
beach recently, then you
probably have seen our new
visitors. I saw these on the
east coast last year. I was
told that they are a member


of the jellyfish family. They
are clear and look like they
are pieces of a larger animal.
They don't sting us, but
apparently they do slow
down other small creatures.
I couldn't find their
name, but I suspect that a
reader will contact me. They
are just one of many crea-
tures found in our area. I
think they call them "mute
jellyfish" on the east coast.
Another one is the "ghost
crab." They dig burrows
away from the water and
bring back prey to their lair.
If you look close enough
you will'see the carcasses of
their prey in front of their
burrows.
Still another one is the
fiddler crab. The beach is
not the main area to find
them. Most of them live in
mud flats or near the roots


of the mangroves. They
come out of their holes to
forage for food and even
have an escape hole in case
of emergency. The males
have one large claw, which
they use more for enticing
the females than for fight-
ing.
Then there's the sand
fleas and the coquinas. Both
are found at water'sedge or
in shallow water. Both of
these creatures were effect-
ed by the red tides of past
years.
That's it for now, we'll talk
again next week. Keep your
eyes open and you'll
see many fascinating things
at the beach.

SARASOTA COUNTY BRIEFS


Meeting on Venice
roundabout

Sarasota County will
hold a public meeting Wed-
nesday, Dec. 12, on its plans
to build a roundabout and
make other improvements
at the intersection of Venice
Avenue and Jacaranda
Boulevard in Venice.
The open house-style
meeting will be held from
5:30-7:30 p.m., with a pre-
sentation at 6 p.m., in the
Venice Middle School cafe-
teria, 1900 Center Road,
Venice.
An alternative to the tra-
ditional, signalized roadway
intersections, a roundabout
moves traffic through an
intersection without the use
of traffic signals by allowing


one-way 'traffic to flow
around a circular central
island. Roundabouts are
being planned in several
locations in the county.
The proposed round-
about at the Venice-Jaca-
randa intersection will be
built for two lanes of traffic,
with the capacity for expan-
sion to -three lanes if need-
ed.
Other planned improve-
ments include drainage,
sidewalks, bicycle lanes,
pedestrian and bicycle
crossings, Sarasota County
Area Transit bus stops,
streetlights and landscap-
ing.
The three-lane round-
about is expected to meet
the traffic needs in that area
through the year 2025.


The estimated cost for
construction is $9.6 million.
An agreement is planned
with developers of adjacent
residential and commercial
sites, providing for a cost
sharing of improvements.
Construction is expected to
begin in spring 2009.
For more information,
call 861-5000. For informa-
tion on roundabouts,. visit
the county's Web site at
www. scgov.net/ Public
Works/Roundabouts.

Most of U.S. 41 traffic lanes to open by year end


FROM FDOT

In keeping with a pledge
made early this year, the
Florida Department of
Transportation has ann-
ounced that six travel lanes
along most of the 3.3-mile
U.S. 41 corridor in Nokomis
from State Road 681 (Venice
Connector) to Bird Bay
Drive will be open to vehic-
ular traffic before the end of
this year.
iz Barring delays due to
weather or other unfore-
seen factors, southbound
motorists will have full use
of three travel lanes, from
S.R. 681 to Palm Avenue,
and from Colonia Lane to
Bird Bay Drive, by year's
end.
In the northbound dir-
z section, three lanes will be
open between Bird Bay
Drive and Colonia Lane,
and from Magnolia Avenue
to the north end of the pro-
ject at S.R. 681.

three lanes in both direc-
tions and raising the eleva-
tion of both bridges is not
yet complete, there will be
two open lanes on south-
bound U.S. 41 from Palm
Avenue over both bridges to
Colonia Lane, and north-
bound U.S. 41 from Colonia
Lane over both bridges to
Magnolia Avenue. This will
continue until late summer
2008.
"We are pleased that our
commitment to have six
lanes open by the end of the
year for most of the U.S. 41
Nokomis corridor will be
fulfilled," said Debbie Hunt,
FDOT District One director
of operations. "We especial-
ly thank the people of Sara-
sota County and visitors for
their patience and under-
standing as FDOT and its
partners work to upgrade


U.S. 41 to make it safer and
more efficient for every-
one."
While three northbound
and southbound lanes on the
segment of U.S. 41 between
Colonia Lane and the Robert
Bay Bridge will be open by
the end of this year, one lane
in each direction along this
stretch will be closed shortly
after Easter for the installa-
tion of utilities, sidewalks,
curbs, new travel lanes and a
decorative concrete medal-
lion at the U.S. 41/Colonia
Lane intersection.
"We have decided to
schedule the work requiring
lane closures between Col-
onia Lane and the Roberts
Bay Bridge until after Easter
and the peak winter season
to minimize the impact on
motorists, residents and
businesses," Hunt said,
adding the entire project is
scheduled for completion
by late next summer.
This $32 million project
is to widen U.S. 41 from four
to six lanes from S.R. 681 to
Bird Bay Drive.


The project also includes
the complete replacement
of the original Dona Bay
and Shakett Creek bridges;
the rehabbing of the Rob-
erts Bay Bridge; and major
drainage, signal and curb /
sidewalk / bicycle lane im-
provements along the entire
corridor.
Motorists are requested
to continue exercising extra
caution while driving th-
rough the U.S. 41 construc-
tion zone where a reduced
35-mph speed limit is in
effect and being enforced
by the Sarasota County
Sheriff's Office. The fine is
double for speeding tickets
issued in the construction
zone.
The prime contractor is
Hubbard Construction,
with Greenhorne & O'Mara
providing the construction
engineering inspection.
Ayers & Associates is the
designer.

Many people shy
away from resale
merchandise be-
cause they think all of the
goods are, well ... used. But
given the number of con-
signment shops in Venice
- and using one's imagina-
tion a shopper might
uncover a treasure or even
the perfect gift.
There is a real variety of
goods sold in these stores,
from vintage clothing to
household appliances. Just
because they are priced low
doesn't mean they're inferi-
or or out-of-date or even
used.
Manufacturers and even
retail stores often donate
leftover or odd-lot mer-
chandise to local charity
thrift shops. Consigned pre-
owned merchandise is usu-
ally looked over carefully

being accepted for sale.
You would be surprised
to see how many things still
have their original price
tags attached and are in
their original boxes.
You might even get a
guarantee that an appli-
ance is in working order.
"I don't want to say we
are upscale, but our store is
one of the few that offers a
warranty on appliances,"
said Brian Dickerson,.store
director of the Habitat for
Habitat ReStore.
Because inventory
changes rapidly, gift certifi-
cates are also offered at that
shop.
"I know this sounds
corny, but you can give a
gift that builds hope,"
Dickerson said.
Proceeds from the
Habitat store go to building
homes in the South Sara-
sota County area. There is
also a section at the store
where customers can
donate canned goods for
needy families.
Partnered with All Faiths
Food Bank, Habitat asks
people to bring in food
goods for holiday meals.
Donors should make sure
the food is within the fresh-
ness date stamped at the
factory.
Holy bargains
There is a little bit of
everything at Divine
Consigns, operated by
women volunteers of St.
Mark's Episcopal Church.
The store stocks a great
deal of estate furniture.
"We had a young man in
here who redid his parent's
entire apartment for
Christmas with furniture
from here," said volunteer
Nancy Hubbard.
During the holidays
there is a surge in business,
especially for certain items,
said store manager Diane


Purchasing items for Christmas from a thrift
shop can offer some relief from credit-card
debt and also help a few local charities.

from names such as Carol
Little, Dana Buckman and
Chico's are sought after for
seasonal parties and
dances.
Proceeds provide schol-
arships and supplies for
children in a Nicaragua
missionary school.
Tiny treasure
If you like browsing, plan
to spend some time at the
Venice-Nokomis United
Methodist Bargain Center.
Established in 1962, the
tiny shop is chockful of sur-
prises.
One warning: If you see
something you like, buy it.
Itwill not be there the next
time you come.
The center has low


prices. How low? A holiday
dress can be purchased for
$8. A matching purse is $4.
Few items cost more than
$10. Some of the merchan-
dise is consigned and some
of it is donated; all of it is in
good condition. This is a
place where real treasures
can be found.
"Our goal is to keep the
merchandise moving; that
is why we charge so little,"
said volunteer June Strayer.
The volunteers work like
a well-oiled machine. All
the labor for pricing, sort-
ing, hanging and selling is
done by a team of dedicat-
ed volunteers who have
been doing it for 45 years.

The News


from Ecineville


BY TED RANK
STAFF ESCRITOR

Hang on to your sanity,
ladies and gentlemen. It's
time for News from Ecine-
ville.
The 20 finalists are in
place for this Friday night's
Bah Humbug Day Pageant
to be held at Ecineville
Community Center.
By late Friday night we
will know the names of the
12 Humbuggers who will
represent Ecineville on
Richa County Humbug
Day, Wednesday, Dec. 26.
"No matter which 12
are selected, we feel we
have an excellent oppor-
tunity to win not only the
team humbug competi-
tion, but also some of the
individual categories, in-
cluding Humbug King or
Queen," said Ecineville
Mayor Latka Von Rigen-
housen.
"I would say my opti-
mism is a little more
guarded than the mayor's.
The town of Doowelgne
has a very strong team this
year," said Ecineville
Humbug Head Coach
TonyT.
The competition events
this year include:
Screaming at cashiers.
Winners are determined
by how loud the cashiers


yell back, how much they
cry or if they quit on the
spot.
Twelve contestants at
a time will hope to win the
"Grab the last toy when
the music stops" competi-
tion. No holds barred.
Punching, kicking and bit-
ing are acceptable.
Four contestants will
play "Steal a parking space
at the mall." You know this
game: Someone is clearly
waiting for a car to vacate
a parking spot and you cut
%LW A,


them off and take the
space.
The "How obnoxious
can your child be in pub-
lic" competition. Contes-
tants will coach a child to
annoy people as much as
possible. It is a four-part
event. Venues are: a
church, a restaurant, a
long line at a toy store and
in a bookstore.
The most weight
gained between 12:01


p.m. Thanksgiving Day
and 12:01 a.m. Dec. 26, by
eating junk food, sweets
and, for the truly coura-
geous, holiday fruitcake.
Going-into-debt-up-
to-and-over-your-eyeballs
competition.
Special points go to
the Humbug contestant
who comes up with the
most creative Bah Hum-
bug gimmick. Last year it
was Doowelgne team
member Richy Gomek,
who volunteered to dress
up as Santa Claus for one
of the elementary school
parties and then in front of
more than 250 children
yelled, not "Ho, ho, ho,"
but, "Bah Humbug, little
children, you see there is
no Santa Claus" as he took
off his costume and left a
cafetorium filled with
screaming aid crying chil-
dren.
Well, this is Ted "I'm a
reporter, I'm a reporter"
Rank reporting. I'll see you
next issue with more news
from Ecineville. Until
then, remember, there are
manywho could use-some
good cheer here in
Ecineville this holiday sea-
son, so be of good cheer to
your friends and neigh-
bors and, more important,
to strangers.

Burn calories, not carbon


BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST CONTRIBUTOR

This March a committee
of volunteers, supported by
city staff, will submit our
application to the League of
American Bicyclists for the
designation of Venice as a
Bicycle Friendly Commun-
ity.
Why would I be con-
cerned about obtaining this
designation? I believe if an
individual bikes or walks to
a destination, that is one
fewer vehicle on the road,
and the rider or walker will
be healthier because of it.
If we as a community
support this action, we


must do what we can to
make the community safe


and accommodating for
bicyclists and pedestrians.
This requires education,
safety, infrastructure im-
provements and developing
a "Share the Road" attitude
of all our citizens..
, In the coming weeks I
wilI-kdisguss a number of
bicycling rules and respon-
sibilities, importantrto all
bicyclists a4" ehiycleoper-
ators. It may-swuA stretch
regarding conservatipn, but
remember: a bicycle does
not emit carbon, nor does it
need a constant diet of nat-
ural resources just an
expenditure of'calories.
The planet it's worth
saving.

LIFE from Page 5B


Elvis's "Hound Dog," which
has been known to turn a
rabid dog into nursing
home lapdog. "Who Let the
Dogs Out?" is always a
favorite of the canine set.
And if your pooch is
overweight, fear not, Pfizer
is here. Yes, dear readers,
Pfizer, the maker of Slentrol,
will bring your cherubic lit-
tle buddy back to normal
car-chasing weight in no
time. "Remember," its slo-
gan says, "a pill a day keeps
the vet away."
And speaking of vets,
should you have to leave
your pal at the vet's office
overnight, you can only
hope that it doesn't suffer
from separation anxiety.
Many puppy-whipped


owners simply cannot stand
to 'leave their buddies alone
at the vet's office. In fact,
some entrepreneurial vets
have taken to renting bunks
to the owners that would
enable them to snuggle with
their pet during treatment.
A word of caution if you
are following this piece:
Make sure that your pet has
the proper insurance cover-
age and if it, your pet, is in
the Chihuahua family, be
dang sure to have a green
card, photo I.D. and pass-
port or at least some sem-
blance of a Social Security
card in the dog's purse.
Homeland Security is
very fussy about this.

Crofts, is 101 years old.
Proceeds go to support
several local charities.
Reading material
The Friends of the
Venice Public Library Book
Store is a resource for the
latest hardcover and paper-
back books. Almost all of
the hardcover books are
recent works of top-selling
authors. Books are dis-
played with the jackets in
pristine condition. t
"It's a wonderful place to
,buy reading material," said
volunteer Mary Oswald.
Books should be read
more than once, she said,
and the store is glad to pass
them on to the next reader.
As Oswald guides cus-
tomers through the store,.
she points out sections on
nutrition, self-help, philos-
ophy, new age and religion
as well as fiction. If books
by a specific author are on
your gift list, chances are
the volunteers can find
something in the shop,
which is to the left of the
library's main entrance.
Paperback books are $1
each and hardcover books
range from $3 to $6.
Bikes and more
If you want a bicycle for
an adult or teen and lack
the funds to purchase one,
check out the front of the
Elephant's Trunk. Run by
volunteers, the shop always
has a a good selection of
refurbished bicycles. The
bikes are lined up at the

A bike-repair facility has
been set up inside and each
bicycle sold has been look-
ed over for safety before be-
ing offered to customers.
Recycling
Giving pre-owned mer-
chandise has multiple ben-
efits: It's a much more per-
sonal experience than just
going online or into a mall
with a credit card; each
purchase helps a charity;
and the environment bene-
fits because these recycled
or "repurposed" items end
up as gifts rather than as
landfill.
It's a win-win-win situa-
tion.

5-Year Powertrain


When you own a HUMMER, famous for
its off-road capability, you have the ulti-
mate freedom to go just about anywhere
and do just about anything.
The newest HUMMER vehicles to
light up dealer showrooms the 2008
H2 and the H3 Alpha are here and
they're designed to give you even more.
More power. More torque. More towing
capacity. More.
And both come standard with the
HUMMER 100,000-Mile/Five-Year
Transferable Powertrain Limited War-
ranty1 plus 24/7 Roadside Assistance1
and Courtesy Transportation.1
The perfect combination of perform-
ance, power, capability and luxury, these
vehicles are truly Like Nothing Else.

H2: A Segment Leader
For 2008, HUMMER has made its H2
even more powerful and created a
leader in the Sport Utility category with
a new 6.2L V8 engine capable of gen-
erating 393 hp and 415 lb.-ft. of torque.
Coupled with a six-speed Hydra-Matic
6L80 automatic transmission, H2 has a
towing capacity of 8,200 lb.2
H2 also has a completely redesigned
luxury interior featuring a new instrument
panel, optional seven-passenger seating,
a DVD entertainment system and new
safety features such as Panic Brake Assist
and head curtain side air bags.3
Two'HUMMER H2 models are avail-
able: the H2 SUV and H2 SUT. The
H2 SUT has a foldable midgate that

Excelling both on- and

off-road, the new 2008

HUMMER H2 and

H3 Alpha have even

more of what makes

HUMMER "Like Nothing

Else." See them at

HUMMER.com.


2008 HUMMER H2 has 9.7 inches of ground clearance to clear off-road obstacles.

With new V8 capability a 300-hp Vortec 5.3L V8 engine
and a Hydra-Matic 4L60-E four-speed transmission the
HUMMER H3 Alpha can tow up to 6,000 lb.2


creates a pick-up length of six feet.
Both models offer three trim levels,
including Adventure and Luxury, to suit
your personal style.

H3 Alpha: V8 Power
This fall HUMMER introduced a new, more
powerful addition to its family of midsize
H3 SUVs the 2008 H3 Alpha.
Versatile both on-and off-road, the
Alpha features a new 300-hp, 5.3L V8
engine with an electronically controlled
Hydra-Matic 4L60-E four-speed auto-
matic transmission that enables you to
tow up to 6,000 lb.2
This vehicle signals its departure
from the ordinary with 16-inch chrome
wheels, chrome door handles and mir-
ror caps and a prominent "Alpha" tail-
gate badge.
And it has a standard leather-appointed
interior that includes an in-dash six-disc
CD changer and Monsoon premium
seven-speaker sound system; heated
front seats with eight-way power adjust-
ment (including lumbar support); and an


optional rear vision camera system for
parking assistance.
The leather-wrapped steering wheel
with an Alpha horn badge and Alpha
embroidered head rests add an extra
touch of exclusivity.
To really make these HUMMER vehi-
cles your own, choose from a variety of
trim packages, color and interior options.
For details, go to HUMMER.com or see
your nearest HUMMER dealer.





1 Whichever comes first. See dealer for details.
2 When properly equipped. Maximum trailer ratings are cal-
culated assuming a base vehicle, except for any options)
necessary to achieve the rating, plus driver. The weight of
other optional equipment, passengers and cargo will reduce
the maximum trailer weight your vehicle can tow. See your
HUMMER dealer for additional details.
3 Always use safety belts and the correct child restraint for
your child's age and size, Children are safer when properly
secured in a rear seat in the appropriate infant, child or
booster seat. Never place a rear-facing infant restraint in the
front seat of any vehicle equipped with an active frontal air
bag. See the vehicle Owner's Manual and child safety seat
instructions for more safety information.
