City may seek bigger role over impact fees


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The city of Venice may
question the county's plan
for citizen input into two
new impact fees.
In a letter dated Dec. 10
County Commissioner
Nora Patterson announced
it established a Capital


Projects Council to maxi-
mize participant input into
the identification of which
projects to fund with re-
ceipts from the new impact
fees.
The new fees, adopted
March 14, went into effect
July 24. They cover justice
and general government.
The commission also up-


dated impact fees for fire
service, emergency medical
services and law enforce-
ment, roads, parks and
libraries.
Left unchanged were the
sewer, potable water and
the school board's educa-
tional impact fee.
The new council would
be comprised of between


five and 10 county officials
and one member from each
municipality.
That may not sit well
with city of Venice officials:
who are used to sitting
alone at the table with the
county to determine how
impact fees collected by the

Along with commercial buildings, like his office in Venice, David Schroeders, of Schroeders Homes Inc., is building and retrofitting
homes with eco-friendly amenities in Sarasota and Charlotte counties.


Once the province of environmental visionar-
ies, energy-efficient innovations are now eco-
nomically viable for all.


BY JOHN HAUGHEY
STAFF WRITER


Necessity, they say, is the
mother of invention.
So, it's not surprising that
as energy costs skyrocket,
environmental concerns
mount, housing inventories
show little movement and a
slow construction market
keeps builders in the red,


some area contractors see
salvation in going "green."
"Finally, with the slow-
down, builders are,taking
time to evaluate the bene-
fits" of energy-efficient tech-,
nologies, said Matt Ross, of
Sarasota-based Eco-$mart
Homes & Buildings.
Founded in 1993, Eco-
$mart sells environmentally
sound, energy-efficient


materials to homeowners,
contractors and developers.
Ross said business has
increased steadily in the last
fewyears, with income dou-
bling since 2003 to about
$1.25 million in 2006. i
"Green is on everyone's
radar," he said, noting many
Eco-$mart customers are
veteran builders respond-
ing to an emerging market.
"Many have been around
for decades. They are calling
us more and more," Ross
said. "Builders are looking for
ways to differentiate :them-


selves from other builders. It's
a win-win."
Tweaking it
One such builder is
David Schroeders, of Sch-
roeders Homes Inc., in
Venice.
A sixth-generation con-
tractor, Schroeders has
been building homes in
Sarasota and Charlotte cou-
nties since 1994.
Last year, the slowdown
offered a respite to retool

ties when traveling ac-
ross their borders.
But sometimes invisi-
ble walls that arise from a
territorial attitude create
unnecessary costs.
And that's precisely
why it's important to
think regionally when
its financially superior to
the alternative options,
of course, said David
Bullock, deputy Sarasota
County administrator.
"It's just something
Worth exploring," Bul-
lock said. "Frankly I think
you'll see more and more
of that as counties have
less resources. We are all
understanding that the
county and city bound-
aries don't mean as
much to people."
As Sarasota County
will badly need a new jail
in the next five years, the
tri-county area has be-
gun to explore the possi-
bility of a regional facility.
Though discussions are
just beginning, Bullock
said he has been in con-
tact' with Charlotte Cou-
nty officials about the
idea.
"We're just launching
this effort," Bullock said..
"The canoe hasn't quite
left the bank yet."
Until anyone knows
whether the option would
be cost-effective, it's un-
clear how realistic it is.
Charlotte County Sh-


Davenport said.
Questions
Some of the costs
associated with a region-
al jail are unpredictable
such as prison labor.
Regional jails typically
hold sentenced inmates,
who can be required to
perform tasks in the
facility, such as in the
kitchen, or outside road
work.
However, a majorityof
local jail detainees (75 per-
cent) have not yet been
sentenced, Davenport
said, potentially creating a
need to hire workers at the
facility.
Transporting inmates
to regional locations is
also an added cost.
"The only way you can
save money on building
jail beds, and I've said this
all along, is coming up
with alternative sentenc-
ing," Davenport said.
For Sarasota County
Sheriff William Balkwill,
the concept raises a nu-
,mber of questions.
Among them: Is one sher-
iff going to be responsible
for the whole jail? What
are the logistics of shar-
ing a jail? How are pris-
oners going to be trans-
ported? Where will it be
located? Since Charlotte

ver, is a 19-yeat veteran of
the driver's seat. She drove
13 years before that in
northeast Ohio before mov-
ing to Venice.
"I really enjoy driving the
school bus," Miles said on
learning she was picked as
employee of the year. "I've
always been an early riser,
and I like to make sure the
kids are on time for school."


Good morning,

Miles said being with
children "helps keep me
young." She will be 67 in
July
I Miles also volunteers in
the classroom atVenice Mid-

teachers with clerical work
and filing, freeing them up
to spend more time directly
with the children. She has

BACK IN TIME


GULF BREEZE HOTEL, 1950s


Tropical Bob thought he
had the perfect gift for an
environmentalist he knows.
T.B.'s friend tries to help
the earth through thought-
ful stewardship. He despises
those who dump waste into
the atmosphere or water.
These miscreants leave a
large "carbon footprint."
To reduce it, a new mar-
ket has been created in "car-
bon credits." Buy to be bad.
That's the way it works.
A carbon credit, T.B. con-
cluded, would be a great
Christmas gift. Alas, today's
market value is $31.89 per
credit. Ouch. A lump of coal
is definitely cheaper.
And therein lies the prob-
lem.

Sarasota County will foot Dona bill if necessary


I.

I'


BY JOHN HAUGHEY
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County has al-
.ready invested $20 million in
its Dona Bay Watershed
Management Plan and is pre-
pared to foot the project's
entire bill $186 million if
accepting state money means
relinquishing control oflocally
financed reservoirs and treat-
ment plants.
"That is a realistic possibili-
ty," Sarasota County Com-
missioner Nora Patterson
said. "We'd certainly rather do
it cooperatively and use the
water cooperatively, but there
is a big difference between
using it cooperatively and just
handing it over."
"This commission is com-
mitted to doing it on our own
if we have to," Sarasota
County Commissioner Paul
Mercier said. "Of course, we'd
prefer to do it as a partnership
with the region."
But Sarasota County's defi-
nition of "partnership" differs
with the Southwest Florida
Water Management District's
interpretation.
The district, or Swiftmud,
says taxpayers in its 16-county
region won't subsidize half the
project unless the 15 million
gallons a day of water it will
produce is "perpetually con-
trolled" by the regional water
authority.
The district's "cooperative
funding policy is designed to
promote and foster regional-


ization and not sustain isolat-
ed" water systems, said
Swiftmud governing board
member Thomas G. Dabney
1 of Sarasota.
Regional taxpayers are not
going to pay for a "water facil-
ity that cannot be used for the
whole region," he added.
These conflicting views
could challenge the viability of
Swiftmud's regionalization
policy adopted last year.
Not so, Dabney said.
"It's too good a project for
people to get unraveled over,"
he said. "In negotiating, the
most important thing is for all
parties to put their sabers on
the table and talk about what
needs to be done and who can
best do it. That is where we are
now."
Unfair
Sarasota County commis-
sioners approved the Dona
Bay plan in 2005, a dual effort
to restore the bay's ecosystem
while creating an alternate
water supply.
It calls for diverting water
from Cow Pen Slough, a
Myakka River tributary re-
aligned in the 1960s to flow
into Dona Bay.
Freshwater runoff from the
slough quadrupled the bay's
watershed to 75 square miles
and diluted the saltwater estu-
ary.
The county wants to divert
up to 15 mgd of slough water
to its Carlton water treatment
plant as part of a three-part


project to begin in 2009.
The plan includes building
400- and 700-acre reservoirs
and a treatment plant, and
purchasing 400 acres to
restore wetlands.
The county has spent $20
million for land and studies. It
requested $6 million from
Swiftmud for design work on
the project's first phase in
2008.
It hopes to seek more
Swiftmud money in 50-50
grants as the project moves
forward.
Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Shannon Staub, chair-
woman of the Peace River/
Manasota Regional Water
Authority board, said without
Swiftmud assistance, the pro-
. ject won't be completed until
2020, at least.
She said if Sarasota County
uses Dona Bay water, it will
relieve pressure on Peace
River, the primary water
source for Charlotte County
and North Port.
Staub said it would be
unfair to ask county taxpayers
to finance the project, then
hand it over to the authority.
Manatee County Commis-
sioner Jane von Hahmann,
also an authority board mem-
ber, agreed.
"It would be very hard for
my constituents to accept
something like that," she said.
"If (Swiftmud) is putting in 50
percent, and the local govern-
ment is putting in the other 50
percent, it is reasonable to


want some type of ownership,
whether to the land or the
operations."
Double-dipping
Staub said Swiftmud is ask-
ing taxpayers to pay twice for
the same infrastructure.
"We already own the two
reservoirs and the plant, so
why waste the authority's
money and Swiftmud's mon-
ey to come in and buy that
land just so the ownership can
be with the Peace River water
authority?" she asked. "The
better solution is the authority
could contract with the coun-
ty to run the plant."
That is among the options,
Dabney said.
"The governing board
understands where Sarasota
County is coming from.," he
said. "It should be a win-win."
Dabney said Swiftmud's
original policy mandated the


authority "own and operate"
waterworks the district helps
pay for. -
He said Swiftmud has
moderated that language to
only require the authority
"perpetually control" water to
secure 50-50 grants.
"Under this scenario, we
can fund it, provided water
production is perpetually
controlled by the authority,"
Dabney said.
"I still have hard time with
that," Sarasota County Com-
missioner Joe Barbetta said.
"That is an unfair position."
Staub said Swiftmud's poli-
cies are suitable for the Tampa
Bay Water Supply Authority,
which owns all utilities in its
area, but not the four-county
Peace River authority, which
includes many municipal and
independent agencies.
"We are not like Tampa
Bay," she said. "We have not

cooperatively."
Patterson said the Peace
River authority "is still in its
infancy" and too reliant on
one source the Peace River.
"There are a lot of straws in
that one supply," she said.
Therefore, the authority "is
not something, at this point,
that we feel we can rely on for
our entire water supply."
Flexible
Dabney said the policy is
flexible enough to suit all.
"It is not a policy that has
one set of rules for the Tampa
Bay area and another for the
Peace River area," he said. "It is
the same policy that is going
to be used in all 16 counties.
The Tampa Bay model is tout-
ed across the state, if not the
nation."

The School Board of Sar-
asota County will pay em-
ployees recalled to active
federal military duty who
lose pay as a result of their
service.
The school board appro-
ved the policy change at its
Dec. 11 meeting. It affects
employees called to military
duty retroactively to Sept.
11,2001.
The policy change ap-
plies to employees who
were in an appointed status
as of the approval date of
'the change. The board will
make up the difference in
ipay for the duration of the
recall.
; The measure should cost
!the district about $20,000
for the retroactive portion,


according to Scott Fergu-
son, communications spe-
cialist for the district.
"I talked with Scott Lem-
pe, our chief operating offi-
cer, and he said that if he
drew a line in the sand to-
day, fewer than 12 people
would be affected retroac-
tively and only two have lost
pay because of military ser-
vice," Ferguson said.
Ferguson does not know
what the cost would be go-'
ing forward.
To qualify for the wage
supplement, the employee
must apply for it and pro-
duce a copy of a Military
Leave and Earnings State-
ment for each month for
which he or she is entitled
to the wages, a news release
from the school district
said.
"Compensation will also


be made for normal school
district longevity pay that
would otherwise be lost due
to time away from the job
due to federal military ser-
vice," the release said.
The release quotes Board
Chair Kathy Kleinlein as stat-
ing. "We adopted this mea-
sure because of the men and
women who serve our coun-
try in military uniforms dur-
ing situations such as our
current wars in Afghanistan
and Iraq. They are already
maldking sacrifices for their
country, and we want to
make sure they and their
families do not suffer any
additional hardships."
Kleinlein is a veteran of
the Army National Guard's
42nd Infantry Rainbow
Division in NewYork.

Cowpen Slough plan doesn't fit regional policy


Florida's water belongs to all its
people. When someone tries to
make a grab for it and use other
people's money to do so we're
fortunate someone is manning the gate
to stop the attempt.
That's what Sarasota County tried to
do with its proposal for Cowpen Slough/
Dona Bay. It wanted Southwest Florida
Water Management District money to
defray the project's $186 million cost, but
sought to retain control of the water in
direct conflict with established Swift-
mud's policy on regional water supply
development.
On Tuesday, the Swiftmud board
sternly and correctly reiterated that
regional projects under regional control
get funded first.
We support the regional approach and
had grown increasingly concerned that


Sarasota's Cowpen Slough project would
tip the regional scale out of balance,
especially if Swiftmud were to veer from
its established policy and pronounce-
ments.
Cowpen Slough is one of those classic
Florida development catastrophes born
in ignorance and nurtured in greed.
It was converted from a meandering
creek to a drainage canal that carries mil-
lions of gallons of water from central
Sarasota to the Gulf of Mexico via Dona
Bay. Sarasota County planned to divert
some of that water, both to help restore
Dona Bay and to serve as a public water
supply. But it needs money from Swift-
mud to fund the project, which includes a
reservoir and a new water treatment plant.
In that way, the plan is no different
. than Punta Gorda's water treatment plant
expansion, for which the city received a


50-50 Swiftmud match. But what is differ-
ent are its scale, timing and the availabil-
ity of water to the region.
Sarasota, which owns the property on
which two reservoirs are proposed to
store water, wanted to retain control of
the water generated by the project by
guaranteeing a portion of it will be avail-
able for regional use, but setting aside
most of it for Sarasota.
Described as a hybrid between region-
alism and self-control, it is neither. What
it is is subsidized water grab that flies in
the face of regionalism. Why would
Charlotte and DeSoto counties agree to
support a multi-million dollar project in
Sarasota for Sarasotans, when a similar
floodwater-to-water-supply project -
known as the Tippen Bay/Long Island
Marsh project along their shared bor-
der lags behind in both planning and


development?
Would Swiftmud also allow Punta
Gorda to retain control of its water supply
after helping to fund its next planned
plant expansion? That's not how we
understand the policy.
We know local governments need to
act in the interests of their communities.
Swiftmud's role is to enforce a broader
approach to water policy that serves
everyone.
We commend the Swiftmud board for
sticking to its guns and reiterating that it
will give the highest funding priority to
regional projects, not county schemes
disguised as regional projects.
Sarasota is free to develop Cowpen
Slough as an alternative water supply for
itself, but it must do so with its own
money without tapping the regional
piggy bank.


LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Just do it


... and


ask forgiveness

Editor:
Let me get this straight in my mind: Build a structure not
in compliance with submitted plans and in violation of
codes, then ask for approval after completion of the project.
And then complain that to bring it into compliance would
incur an expense.
Oh, and the regulatory body charged with the oversight
of the whole process might agree to mitigate (ignore?) all
the code violations and allow the project to remain.
Where in the world could this happen? Why, Sarasota
County, of course, at the Fisherman's Wharf docks in the
ICW at Venice, to be specific.
The county commissioners who sit on the Water
Navigation Control Authority have either failed in their
oversight responsibilities or have fallen victim to the "be
quietAb ,utit" synrqrnme when it comes to code violators.
' hankrg in6e'ss for the newspaper writers who have outed
this debacle.
It's too long and too wide. Where were the inspectors
during construction? Why were comments and concerns
by neighbors seemingly ignored during the process? Why
would the code lawbreaker simply be let off the hook?
I guess it's build it against the rules and ask for forgive-
ness when discovery takes place.
Much too late to fix it right? Seems like a lot of that sort
of thing going on in this county.
Maybe some of the people making these decisions need
to be reminded about the last vote in Venice, when it came
to public officials not doing their job of listening to and not
being responsible to the real public.

Just a safe road,
please, Santa
Editor:
Dear Santa,
Thank you for your gifts
last year. I still believe in you
and know you will give me
what I want this year,
please.
I want slow and safe dri-
ving on State Road 776,
from about ABC Liquor to


Wal-Mart on the other end
of town in Englewood, Fla.
Only 10 percent of the
cars travel 45 mph or less;
every one else is zooming
through.
After dropping off a con-
tribution at Goodwill, you
need to really hope for more
"goodwill" from drivers be-
fore going back on S.R. 776.
The problems on 776 are


even worse if you are walk-
ing or on a bike.
The intersection at 776
and Dearborn Street the
"heart" of Englewood is a
busy place. Four banks, a
restaurant, market and drug
store are located there. The
problem is, you can't get
there safely as a pedestrian
or on a bike.
The "walk" light is less
than a minute, and if a
motorist turns red on right
and delays your walking,
you just won't make it. If you
are pushing a stroller, or are
at all "aged to perfection,"
you are in trouble.
The walk light at the new
Beall's Outlet crosswalk is
no better.
Santa, please, I know you


will find a way to make S.R.
776 safe for me and all my
neighbors.
Merry Christmas.

It's not China's fault
Editor:
The massive China-
made toy recall was of great
concern to all toy buyers
because children's safety
was involved.
But don't blame China -
the blame belongs to our
companies. They went to
China for the low labor mar-
ket, to make greater profits.
It's their responsibility; they
must monitor the toy pro-


cess with their people on site.
Years ago when most of
the toys were American-
made, they were safety
checked before distribution.
The old saying applies: "The
cheapest price is not always
the best price."
Many toy buyers are ask-
ing, "Was it made in China?"
The only way to protest is
don't buy toys from these
companies. This is almost
impossible, because they all
do it. They say it's to stay
competitive; the real reason
is for greater profits.
DuringWednesday night's
Republican Presidential de-
bate, one was asked what he
would do to curtail the im-
balance trade gap. The an-
swer was, "We should buy


American made." What a
joke; we can't, it's too late -
everything is foreign made.
The American compa-
nies reward their CEOs for
higher profits with millions
more; isn't that great?
Foreign-made products
are raising havoc with our
middle class. It's constantly
shrinking away.
We can't compete with
their low labor rates our
standard of living is much
higher, it costs more to sup-

The business executives
know this; they just want
bigger profits. It's called

Santa, no more taxes, please

Citizens of Florida, you
are not as lucky as those in
Oregon or in Alaska. This
week each citizen in Oregon
got a tax rebate check. What
a nice concept.
We have decided on our
own to make our county a
better place and have voted
ourselves many new taxes,
and the government just
gave us some too (how
nice). But those have not
been quite enough.


Many of our govern-
ments have decided to raise
a bunch of our taxes (or
"fees"), like the cost of pick-
ing up the garbage or rent-
ing the community center
or having our kids play Lit-
tle League. I say if it looks
like a tax, it must be one.
Now the city is consider-
ing charging a fire service
fee -just one more tax. Oh,
they aren't actually adding
the tax, just the ability to do
it if we want or need one
more tax later.
When are there enough
taxes? This year, thankfully,
we voted for a tax to make
our schools the best; unfor-
tunately, we spent it so fast
that we are short of money
and have had to lay off
teachers. The schools had
full-time positions frozen,
so they have full-time subs
in those spots doing not
nearly the job a trained full-
timer would do.


We also voted one cent to
give us a billion to add a lot
of amenities that will make
our communities a lot nicer
- lots of nicer government
buildings and roads and
even a performing arts hall.
Don't we just have en-
ough taxes? We have big
tobacco taxes, but we don't
want smokers to smoke
anywhere, especially at a
beach. Pretty soon we will
ban McDonalds since peo-
ple eat their food and leave
French fries and wrappers
on the beach.
We tax booze. We have
taxed roads so many times I
have lost count; the state
does it, the feds do it and, of
course, the county does it.
We have cable taxes, and
hunting license taxes, and
unemployment taxes, and
Social Security taxes, and
EMT taxes and lighting dis-
trict taxes and luxury taxes,
and sales taxes, with even a


little extra if you live in Sara-
sota County.
There are building per-
mit taxes, and unemploy-
ment taxes, and inheritance
taxes, and property taxes,
and a Medicare tax, and RV
taxes, and food license and
occupational taxes, and a
school tax, anda i \ oi, 1 -
1, and utility iaw.. and tele=
phone taxes -- and don't
forget the income tax, San-
ta, please don't bring us a
fire service tax.,
Incidil'iiill\. there is a
move afoot to have yet
.inoitl ir tax proposal onl it
ballot, for more property tax
cuts. This, if adopted, will
cut the property taxes so we
will get increases in other
taxes and likely some new
taxes (oh, I'm sorry, fees).

DEREK DUNN-RANKIN
GUEST COLUMNIST


Jan and Lamar Mathews
invited to us to lunch with a
few friends at their home,
down a quiet lane facing on
Sarasota Bay. The guest of
honor was retired U.S. Sen.
Bob Graham.
A former state legislator
and governor of Florida, he
served for 10 years on the
Senate Intelligence Commi-
ttee. He has been busy in
retirement.
Janet Snyder Mathews
has published a new revised
edition of her history
of Sarasota. The governor,
an old friend of the
Mathewses, wrote the dust
jacket introduction to the
glossy revised edition. As
the governor noted, "Flori-
da history is a collection of a
history of its locales."
"Sarasota, Journey to
Centennial," is as beautiful
a publication as it is inter-
esting.
Included in the revised


edition are color drawings
made by U.S. Army Capt.
Seth Eastman when he was
assigned to Fort Armistead
on the banks of Sarasota
Bay, way back in 1841. Early
days of cattle ranching are
illustrated with Frederic
Remington's authentic
cracker cowboys.
We are carried through
the first of our real estate
booms that ended with the
1888 yellow fever epidemic
and the national panic of
1893. The generously illus-
trated volume chronicles
the regional impact of the
Seminole Indian battles, the
Civil War and the two world
wars. Today, we welcome
the influx of Canadian and
European investors taking
advantage of our bargain
real estate prices.
Not until reading this fas-
cinating book was I aware
that Sarasota was an 1885
real estate development,
the brainchild of an opti-
mistic Scot, John Tait of
Glasgow. He and his associ-
ates put together a colony
recruited in Glasgow and
laid out a town whose main
street was only a dirt trail
through the pines to a
makeshift dock when the
first immigrants arrived.
There is a lot more. The
book is a model for the
genre and will make a nice
Christmas gift. /
Gov. Graham talked at


lunch about plans for the
Graham Center at the
University of Florida. The
governor is a graduate of
Miami High School, the
University of Florida and
Harvard University.
He hopes the center will
be a mecca for future state
leaders to broaden their
understanding about how
we achieve progress in our
democracy. The Kennedy
School of Government at
Harvard provides a model
of what he hopes can be
achieved in this state.
He pointed out that it
was the associations he
formed while at the Uni-
versity of Florida that made
it possible for him to run his
first statewide campaign
when he was a little-known
state legislator from Miami.
After. lunch, Jan, Lamar
and the governor de-
camped to Spanish Point,
where they joined photog-
rapher Clyde Butcher and
writer Alan Horton for a
book signing. The gift shop
there has the book on sale.
I have a nice inscription
from the governor on the
flyleaf of his book, "Intel-
ligence Matters."
For the governor, it is still
all about education and the
future of his state.
Derek Dunn-Rankin is
president ofSun Coast
Media Group, the Gondolier
Sun's parent company.


Bah, humbug on the avenue?


Look at the past,



focus on the future


No deduction. This is in
regard to the new assess-
ment for fire service. In the
council meeting yesterday,
the fire chief made a state-
ment that all he wants is
equity and fairness for the
taxpayers by asking for a
new assessment for fire ser-
vice. That approach sounds
like horse hockey to me.
What they are looking for is
only one thing: additional
revenue for the city ear-


marked for a fire depart-
ment. That way theywill
have more income that is
raised by the ad valorem
process to run the balance of
the city operations. The new
assessment, if adopted,
would no longer be a tax
deduction for homeowners.
Therefore, the citizen will
not only be paying an addi-
tional assessment, but will
lose the small amount that is
a tax deduction when it's


Rude attitude. I'm calling about the businesses on
Venice Avenue. I took my children downtown last Thursday
for the holiday walk where Santa was supposed to come.
We had gotten there early, so we went to a Christmas store
where my mother saw something she wanted to buy. As we
went to put our hand on the door, a person came and
locked the door right in front of us and said they would
reopen in 30 minutes. My childrefi and I were shocked
because we were just about to go in, and she did this. I did
not go back and I will not go back. Every time we drive by,
my children say, "There's the store where that mean lady
locked the door." So I don't feel sorry for the businesses on
Venice Avenue. If they wanted business, they would have
had my business; and now I'm sure my children will not go
there either. I've been calling to try to speak to the owner to
see if it was the owner or an employee who did this, and
they don't even answer their phone. I just thought that was
very bad business.

lives with her grandmother,
who has cared for, her by
holding two jobs. That was,
until cancer made that
impossible.
They were about to lose
the house they live in until a
lot of people stepped up to
help them out. One reader
has agreed to pay two
months' of rent. The county
and FPL each helped; some
nonprofits, like the Sal-
vation Army, assisted by
paying their utility bills.


Another person replying to
our story has agreed to
make a couple of car pay-
ments.
Barb Delgato, guidance
counselor at the high
school, has helped coordi-
nate these efforts.
Thanks to all of you who
have made a difference and
given Jen hope. She has
had to work hard to make
up for missing school be-
cause she was caring for
her grandmother, but all is


looking up.

part of the ad valorem pro-
cess. This is a no-brainer. The
city and management staff
will never recommend a
equal reduction in ad val-
orem taxes that equates to
the cost of the recommend-
ed assessment. The fire
department will be all smiles
because they got their
money through the assess-
ment process. It's a win-win
situation for city depart-
ments and the fire depart-
ment. Who do you think are
the losers? Answer:- the tax-
payers. Also, I thought it was
rather bold and disrespectful
for the fire chief to tell the
council members what their
responsibilities are as coun-
cil members and why they're
on council, when it comes to
making decisions on behalf
of the citizens. Talk about
nerve. It's time for that staff
member to take additional
courses in protocol; and he
should be reminded by the
city manager, who is his
boss, what his responsibili-
ties are when making pre-
sentations to city council.

GREEN from Page 1A
with a green emphasis, Sch-
roeders said.
Schroeders used Mort-
gage Industry National
Home Energy Rating soft-
ware to model "what the
electrical savings would be"
if Energy Star-rated appli-
ances were installed in a
new home.
"We kept tweaking it
until we got to the most
cost-effective," he said, not-
ing projected energy costs
for a 2,400-square-foot home
were whittled to $100 a
month or less.
And this was in a conven-
tional home. Dramatic sav-
ings followed when 'Sch-
roeders found that in-
stalling photovoltaic panels
in tandem with Energy Star
appliances, could create a
"zero-energy" home at
moderate costs.
Schroeders Homes Inc.
now builds zero-energy
homes exclusively.
"We've sold seven, eight
of them," Schroeders said.
"This is below our normal
pace (before the slowdown),
but better than" the current
market.
As far as he is concerned,
going "green" now will pay
dividends for years.


"We've had such a big
response from Realtors and
builders," Schroeders said.
"We really feel this is the
way it is going. When the
market picks up again, we
are not going to abandon
this."
It's d regional trend, said
Adrienne Henzmann, of the
Florida Solar Energy Center
at the University of Central
Florida.
"The public is asking for
it," she said. "Builders have
an awareness of it. It's a race
to meet that demand."
Niche to norm
Schroeders said a grow-
ing number of home buyers
view energy efficiency as a
priority.
'All the people we've been
working with are looking for
energy-efficient homes," he
said.
While a niche market
now, Schroeders predicted
this type of "energy-aware"
home buyer will soon be the
standard.
"Most consumers don't
look at energy consumption
in homes like they do with
an automobile with miles
per gallon, but they are
starting to," he said.
Ross said consumers are
"more educated, more con-


corned about sustainability,
with global warming and oil
prices" in headlines daily.
"That is certainly the
case," Henzmann said. "If
it's a fossil fuel, that cost is
going up."
Bottom line
The bottom line is
"green" building is good for
the bottom line.
"The economics of it are
very good," Ross said.
"It just makes sense be-
cause the cost of the house,
after rebates, is less than a
conventional building,"
Schroeders said. "That is
the one thing I really want
to get across: Five- to 10-
percent more in additional
construction costs can save
energy costs by 70 percent."
When are savings re-
couped?
"The first month and
every month you live in the
home," Schroeders said.
As the biggest obstacle to
"green" building higher
up-front prices are
trimmed by cost-cutting
technologies and a growing
market's economy of scale,
rebates and tax credits are
spurring investment.
"Incentives," said Bruce
Kershner of the Florida So-
lar Energy Industries Ass-


ociation, "are the key to
building the market."
Incentives
Kershner said the role of
incentives is "to bring down
costs, to bridge that gap" to
make "green" building aff-
ordable.
"Some technology may
be a little pricey now for the
average homeowner," he
said. "Until we get the mar-
ket built here in Florida to
bring down costs, we have
to have a successful incen-
tive program. Right now, it's
a small one, but it's a step in
the right direction."
Kershner said that since
2006, Florida has offered
homeowners a $4-per-watt
rebate to install a PV sys-
tem, and $500 for a solar
water heater.
If Gov. Charlie Crist has
his way with the state
Legislature, Kershner said
more incentives will be
offered soon.
State incentives are aug-
mented by rebates from
some local governments
and utilities.
Florida Power & Light,
Southwest Florida's primary
electric utility, is developing
an incentive package, said
David Bates -in FP&L's
Miami office.


Now, the utility offers a
$1-a-watt rebate for PV sys-
tems, boosting saving to $5
per watt.
These incentives are also,
enhanced by federal tax
credits.
Retrofit rewards
While the emphasis is on
new homes, Kershner said
retrofitting is "probably the
easier thing a homeowner
can do. If you are talking
about a payback, that is prob-
ably the biggest, fastest way."
The Florida Solar Energy
Industries Association
maintains a list of green-cer-
tified contractors and
builders who specialize in
retrofits, he said.
'"A solar contractor can
help (homeowners)," Kersh-
ner said. "You can, easily, with
current rebates and incen-
tives more than cut the cost
of a solar hot-water heater in
half."
While retrofits are eventu-
ally cost-effective, Schro-
eders said, it requires a
"whole system approach"
which is more complex than
just putting solar panels on a
house.
In addition to PV panels
and a solar water heater,
zero-energy homes need
well-insulated windows and


WEDNESDAY, DEC. 26, 2007

roofs, as well as an energy-
efficient air-conditioning sys-
tem.
Ross said these innova-
tions can be enhanced with
recycled roof materials, alter-
native decking and other
products.
Schroeders said zero ener-
gy can withstand a Category
5 hurricane, which fosters
additional savings in insur-
ance premiums.
Unlimited
Businesses can reap even
greater rewards by going
"green," Kershner said.
"A lot of our contractor
members work closely with
not only home builders, but
with a lot of commercial
developers," he said. "Es-
pecially big-box stores; it's
ideal to put a solar array on
top of those buildings."
Schroeders said business-
es pay more for electricity
than residential users, so they
recoup even more savings by
lowering consumption.
"On a commercial sys-
tem, the payback is about
three years," he said. "The
federal tax credit is 30 per-
cent on residential; on a
commercial system, it is
unlimited."

city on behalf of the county
are spent within the city.
The new council could
dilute the city's role.
. City Manager Marty
Black is drafting a response
to Patterson's letter, which
asks the city to sign off on
changes to the interlocal
agreement implementing
the new collection proce-
dures.
Black would like the new
impact fee ordinance .and
collection agreement to re-
flect the same existing ag-
reements for parks and
transportation impact fees.
"The -proposed model'
the county has asked the
rue- t4- approve chiftsthat
decision making and voice
6f the city in determining
how fees ... are allocated,"
Black said.
He'd rather see an agree-
ment that reflects the ma-
yor's and city council ability
to prioritize and expend the


funds.
County and city officials
are expected to continue to
work out kinks in the plan
before bringing it before city
council to approve.
The county Public Fac-
ility Financing Advisory Bo-
ard, composed of nine
appointed members by the
Board of County Comm-
issioners, established to pr-
ovide citizen input on im-
pact fees, was extensively
involved in the review of the
2007 new and updated
impact fees.
, Impact fees are one time
charges on new develop-
ment to pay for its share of
-the eost of city-and-c-ounPo, -
infrastructure needed' to
service it. The fees may not
be spent on maintenance or
other operating costs of the
facilities.

"There are so many
questions that have to be
brought up to even be con-
sidered for a regional con-
cept," Balkwill said. "That's
not to say it's a bad idea."
As the state and its coun-
ties look to reduce budgets,
the spirit of cooperation is


less about goodwill toward

Know your-car-buying options


OBITUARIES


BY KEN KLEINLEIN
CRIME SCENE
COLUMNIST

When buying a car, either
new or used, always shop
around and locate a vehicle
and a dealership that appeal
to you. Research both and be
prepared to negotiate the
sales price and the entitle-
ments offered.
Be aware that if you pur-
chase a vehicle that develops
problems mechanically and
you do not receive satisfac-
tion from the dealership, you
have options.
Florida's Lemon Law ap-
plies to new vehicles sold or
leased on a long-term basis in
the state of Florida. The
Florida Attorney General's
Office has a process in place
to protect consumers from
being victimized by purchas-
ing a "lemon."
Since the program's incep-
tion, more than 13,300 con-
sumers have received re-
funds or replacement vehi-
cles.
Florida's Lemon Law re-
quires automobile manufac-
turers to make a reasonable
number of repairs to remedy
substantial defects in a motor
vehicle. If the manufacturer
fails to do so, it is required to


buy back the lemon vehicle
and either pay a refund to the
consumer or provide a re-
placement vehicle.
Consumers are protected
under the Lemon Law for 24
months after the date of
delivery of the vehicle. Any-
one who experiences prob-
lems with a new vehicle dur-
ing that period should imme-
diately take the vehicle to the
manufacturer's authorized
dealer.
The attorney general's
office administers the New
Motor Vehicle Arbitration
Board, which resolves dis-
putes between consumers
and manufacturers.
The board holds arbitra-
tion hearings throughout the
state during which con-
sumers and manufacturer
representatives may appear
and give testimony in an
informal setting. The panel
then determines whether the
consumer's vehicle meets the
legal requirements to be
declared a lemon.
Arbitration hearings con-
ducted by the board are open
to the public. The process is
free, fair and expeditious.
Ken Kleinlein, a former
detective with the New York
Police Department, works as a
frauds and crime consultant.

Merry Christmas, coaches
;. : ,*,


TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

As someone with a direct
line to Santa Claus (power of
the press, you know), I took it
upon myself to send a Christ-
mas wish list to the man him-
self on behalf of all the coach-
es at Venice High School.
So, coaches, don't blame
me if you didn't get every-
thing you wanted on Christ-
mas morning. Take it up with
the big guy.
ForVolleyball Coach Brian
Wheatley: One extra year of


eligibility for his seven sen-
iors. The "super seven" won
the state championship as
sophomores and could cer-
tainly do it again as fifth-year
seniors. He may have to wait
till next year (again) for that
Auburn national champi-
onship, though.
For Boys Golf Coach Mar-
ty Tarala: He has five guys
returning who can shoot in
the 30s on a regular basis. He
could use some lessons for
himself so that he might
stand a chance at beating
them.
For Girls Golf Coach Wa-
yne Robertson: What do you
get for the coach who has
everything? He already has a
state champion in Casey
Kennedy and a regional ch-
ampion in Crystal Smith.
They're both coming back, so
maybe a third standout golfer
would be enough for his
team to make a run at state.


For Swimming Coach
John Bruenning: Used to
three olympic-sized pools
and a water park with the
Sarasota Sharks, Bruenning
could use at least one more
pool at Venice High. But not
even Santa can overstep
Larry Sandburg. He might
have to settle for some salt-
water-durable lane dividers
for the Venice moat.
For Girls Cross Country
Coach Brenda Clark A laptop
computer. Being the cross
country and track coach and
having kids on just about
every other Venice team,
Clark could use a laptop to do
my job for me. Shes already
at every Venice game, match
and meet Why not submit
about 400 words after each
one?
For Boys Cross Country
Coach Jason Potter: Jedi
mind-control powers. Pot-
ter had trouble getting a full


team together for this season,
and he loses Ben Thomas to
graduation. He could use his
powers to convince kids that
running really fast for 3.2
miles is fun.
For Football Coach John
Peacock: His own personal
Sportcenter announcer. lis-
tening to Peacock do game
highlights at the Linebacker
Club is a step above the
Bobby Bowden Show and a
step below watching paint
dry. At least he knows the
players' names, though, un-
like that coach from Talla-
hassee.
For Wrestling Coach Dan
Kelly: He'll have to ask Sand-
burg, not Santa, for a wrest-
ling room. Maybe next year.
As a consolation, Kelly could
use a Hulk Hogan build to go
along with his Hulk Hogan
facial hair.
For Boys Soccer Coach
Seth Jones: A Delorean eq-


uipped with a Flux Capacitor.
It would be nice to go back to
those two weeks in late Nov-
ember and early December
with a full lineup. Without
suspensions or injuries, the
Indians might be better off
than a 4-4-3 record.
For Girls Soccer Coach Sh-
eldon Chamberlain: Dana
LaRocque's undivided atten-
tion. The freshman sensation
also dabbled in volleyball in
the fall. Chamberlain would
.probably like to see Wheatley
back off.
For Girls Weightlifting
Coach Nancy Tessier: A girl,
any girl, in the 183-pound
and 199-pound weight class-
es. Just having anybody there
is usually automatic points,
and Venice would likely be
undefeated if they had some-
one there.
For Girls Basketball Coach
Bruce Reichenbach: A sched-
uling assistant Through 11


games, the Lady Indians have
played at home twice. Now
home games don't even feel
like home games for Reich-
enbach's team.
For Boys Basketball Coach
Steve Cavallaro: A soft sched-
ule through December, 2008.
His team survived the first
part of 2007 thanks to an
early exit from the playoffs by
the football team. Trey
Burton, Justin Grant, Dre
Archer, Beckett Wales and
Brandon Wilkinson may be
otherwise occupied next
year.
Apologies to the baseball,
softball, tennis, boys weight-
lifting and track and field
coaches. Having not yet cov-
ered your teams, I have no
way to find out who's nau-
ghty or nice. Only Santa
knows that The power of the
press has its limits.

Alan Raynor is a natural
athlete.
The Venice resident
earned six medals at the
Florida Senior Games in
Fort Myers earlier this
month. He brought home
the gold in the four-by-100
meter relay, the long jump
and the triple jump. He took
silver in the high jump, the
100- and 200-meter dash.
His long. jump (12-feet-4-
inches) was a new state
record. He made, All-
America status in five of the
events.
And he never trained a
day in his life.
"With my body, I had
immediate success," Raynor
said. "Every event that I
compete in takes less than
35 seconds. I'm not interest-
ed in training or exercises. I
go out there, I'm bringing
what I've got and they show
what they've got."
So far that's worked out.
pretty well. Raynor began
competing in track and field
at age 69. Now in the age 74-
80 division, he has taken
home 18 medals this year.
"I've discovered the ma-
gic formula," he explained.
"Do events that last 35 sec-
onds or less and you don't
have to train. And they give
you medals!"
At the national level, the
medals are never better than

a Venice Regional Medical Center
Patient Makes a Full Recovery



o this day, doctors still aren't sure what caused Sandra
U Kinsman to black out and lose control of her vehicle,
plunging into the waters of South Creek near Osprey. They can
tell you that she was in very poor condition when she arrived at
the Venice Regional Medical Center emergency department last
Halloween Day.
As Kinsman explains, she driving from her home nm Sarasota
to do some shopping in V and if.e f hiW ghe knew she
was underwater, trapped inside her convertible. She didn't know
how she got there, but
she knew her situation
was dire.
"I was conscious
enough to know I was
submerged. I said
S goodbye to my family,"
she remembers. But
then she heard voices

happened to be in the
immediate vicinity when the accident occurred. She was immed-
iately transported by EMS to Venice Regional Medical Center, but
recalls almost nothing after being rescued.
Dr. James Rodgers was the hospitalist on duty when she came into
the ER. He attended to her for the next two weeks while she recovered
in the hospital.
"When she arrived, her lungs were filled with fluid," he describes.
"She was also in a state of shock, which resulted in low blood pressure,
kidney failure, and metabolic and electrolyte abnormalities."
He says she was treated immediately for the shock and placed
on a respirator because of lung damage. And while he and Dr.
Dan Vardi-the hospital's pulmonary and critical care specialist-
felt she was treatable, they were concerned that the brackish water
she had inhaled would cause pneumonia. And because they did
not know exactly how long she had been deprived of oxygen, they
knew there was a risk of brain damage.
"It was definitely touch and go for the first 48 hours, but we felt
confident that the damage to her lungs was treatable and reversible,"
says Dr. Rodgers. "What we didn't know was whether there had
been significant injury to the brain-and we wouldn't be able to
determine that until she came off of the respirator and sedatives."
Fortunately, it was a best-case scenario. Although Kinsman did
develop some pneumonia, with good care she healed and grew
strong enough for doctors to take her off of the respirator and bring
her back to con-sciousness. When they did, says Dr. Rodgers,
her recovery was dramatic. Within a two-day period, she made
remarkable strides and showed no signs of lasting brain damage.
"It was incredibly rewarding to see such a rapid recovery and
know that she would have no permanent life-altering effects," says
Dr. Rodgers.
Kinsman credits her rescuers and the doctors at Venice Regional
for saving her life.
"If it weren't for them, I would not be here today," she says. "And
although I was conscious for only a few days of my stay at the hospital,
my family cannot say enough about my care-they said the doctors
and nurses just couldn't do enough for me and communicated with


VRMC EXPANDS

REHABILITATION

PROGRAM WITH

HAND THERAPY

Occupational Therapist Patricia Lucas
joined the Venice Regional Medical
Center team in November 200" to
expand the rehabilitative therapy op-
tions available to our patients with the
addition of a hand therapy program.
As a hand therapist, Lucas is trained
to rehabilitate patients after injury, sur-
gery, or the onset of disease that affects
the hand or upper extremity. Hand ther-
apists work closely with physicians and
surgeons to create treatment plans that
ensure the highest quality of care and
functional outcome for even patient.
"Oftentimes people don't know what
hand therapy is until they need it," said
Lucas. "It is a very specific. individual-
ized rehabilitation program that can be
useful for patients of all ages and numer-
ous diagnoses."
Treatment includes a combination
of occupational and physical therapy,
based on scientific and clinical research.
Surgery is sometimes required and
splints are often used to immobilize
what shouldn't move. The splint can
also aid movement of joints to pre-
vent contractures and stiffness through
out the healing process.
Patients who may benefit from this
type of rehabilitation include those
with wounds, burns, fractures and dis-
locations, nerve and vessel compres-
sion injuries (such as Carpal Tunnel
Syndrome). flexor and extensor lacera-
tions, tendon grafts or reconstruction.
arthritis, deformities of the fingers
(as in Swan Neck, Boutonniere and
Mallet fingers), rotator cuff inju-
ries, frozen shoulder, thoracic outlet
syndrome, amputations, replanta-
tions and ray resections, joint replace-
ments and overuse injuries (such as in
rendoniris).
Hand therapy patients are referred
by doctor's recommendation only. If
you believe you may benefit from hand
therapy. or would like more informa-
tion, consult your physician or aill the

BY KATHERINE
SHERIN-ZAUNER
GUEST WRITER

Nearing the century
mark, Venice Art Center co-
founder Tatiana McKinney
continues to teach and to
produce new techniques
and exceptional paintings.
"I paint every day," she
said. "When I paint I feel
really alive."
The beginning
An internationally known
artist, she began riding the
wave of creativity during
her early childhood in Smo-
lenskld, Russia. Noticing her
interest in the world around
her, McKinney's parents
hired an art teacher to give
her lessons at home when
she was barely 7 years old.
Her philosophy is one is
never to young or too old to
begin painting.
"My first teacher taught
me how to see perspective."
she smiles in recollection.
She has been seeing with
the eye of a gifted artist ever
since. To help budding
artists understand how she
sees and reproduces what
she sees, McKinney assem-
bled a collection of notes,
lectures and journals and
then published, "Riding the
Wave," a spiral-bound book,
about .art, technique and
tools. The book, published
ii 2004, includes multiple
examples of her work.
Assisting in the publication'
was former student Marie
Scott, a prize-winning
weaver of cord baskets.
"I have tried to make the
meaning of art simpler than
traditional academic train-
ing so that my friends, the
students, will not suffer so
much," McKinney wrote in
the book's foreword.
The artist's humor comes
through in her writing style.
Her metaphors are simple
and the language she uses
to describe the creative
process becomes poetic at
times. Her own work has
been said to resemble the
movement of dance.
For inspiration, she looks
outside.
Her inspiration
"Nature is the greatest
teacher of all," she said. "It
gives all that we need, all
that we could desire for any
work: color, form, light,
space, all the infinite beauty.
One has to learn to see. No
one could ever reproduce
nature... only learn from it
and produce a moment, a


link in the eternal chain."
Marriage
While she was a student
at the Academique Vino-
gradov, Riga Latvia, Mc-
Kinney met her future hus-
band, Samuel Henry Mc-
Kinney, a United States
diplomat appointed to the
American legation in Riga,
Latvia. The couple traveled
broadly in Europe. South
America and the U.S. where
she continued to develop
her talents by studving at
the Ascola Nacional de
Belas Artes, participating in
a salon of Brazilian painters,
participating in group
shows and teaching classes.
The artist's resume in-
cludes countless shows and
awards in the U.S. and
abroad. Her recognition
grewwhen she participated
in one-woman shows, the
first of which was held in
Rio de Janeiro in 1950. A
decade later, she had a solo
show in Athens, Greece.
"She is more Greek than
a Greek," wrote a critic of
that show in Athens.
For McKinney,. who is
devoutly Orthodox, art is a
spiritual experience. She
has painted numerous
iconic figures. Picture this
diminutive lady standing on
a ladder to paint an icon 14
feet tall.
In 1963, the NMcK-i.eys
were ready to settle down.
Vacationing in Venice, they
took a romantic and leisure-
ly stroll.
"We saw a postage-
stamp sized lo with a For
Sale sign prominently post-
ed," she said. "On the spot,
we made up our minds! We
bought it and built a post-
age-stamp-sized house.
With the beach, the winter
quarters of the Ringling cir-
cus and the Ringling muse-
um for neighbors, what else
did we need?"
Settling into community
life, the artist became a
charter member of the New
College Fine Arts Institute in
Sarasota. It wasn't long be-
fore her work was being
described by New College
Associate Professor of Art
History Dr. Cris Hassold in
his essay, "Mysteries Re-pre-
sented." Commenting on
her reversal of the normal
visual experience, he wrote:
'At first we see abstract pat-
terns of color, gold or silver
and darkness. In time we
begin to discover with sur-
prise that the brilliant colors
are in fact illuminated back-
grounds that lie behind the

Center.


dark silhouettes of the fig-
ures." .
Commenting on the dis-
covery of positive images in
the work, Hassold pointed'
out that she was a "mod-
ernist using qualities of
pastness, spirituality and
mystery to create for her
viewer a particular insight
into human experience."
"Her precious metals, her
glowing jewel-like colors are
all means of making the
experience of pastness, my-
sterious, incredibly rich and
precious."
On view
The artist's work can be
found in numerous collec-
tions worldwide. Her reli-

, gious paintings are particu-
.larly sought after. The late
Pope John Paul II added
several of her paintings to
his private collection as did
John Nevins, bishop emerr-
itus of Venice. Several Sara-
sota churches have com-
missioned her work.
The Holy Spirit Orthodox
Mission in Venice was the
recipient of eight panels of
icons as well as the decorat-
ed Royal Doors. Her paint-
ing, "Christ in Majesty,"
commissioned for the his-
toric chapel of St. Francis de
Sales in Milwaukee, was
chosen to hang at the bish-
ops' 1983 conference in
Washington D.C.
In 2005, she was honored


by the Venice Art Center,
which installed a plaque
honoring her as a co-
founder of the center. In
December that year, her all-
media workshop was filled
with budding artists who
would become devoted fol-
lowers. Her grand-daughter
Nona Fromont traveled
from Belgium to participate
in the workshop. A new
technique illustrated at that
workshop was described in
"Postscripts," a booklet she
published last year.
"She is an inspiration to
me," Fromont said of her
grandmother.
Influential teacher

her teaching style reflects
the same sensitivity and
skill displayed in her art
work.
Professional artist Roger
Skelton, a former Ringling
School of Art and Design
student, gained the confi-
dence he needed to contin-
ue his art career despite a
disabling head injury.
"She was such an en-
courager," he said. "She
knows just what you need."
To steady his hand, he
would anchor his elbow on
a hard surface until "Tatiana
gave me the courage to
loosen up and let it go. That
made the difference!"
Another student, Joey
MacDonald, has been asso-
ciated with McKinney as
student and friend for 12
years. They met in the North
Carolina mountains' where
she taught summer art class-
es for 18 years and where
Joey and her husband Brian
Gurl were working as enter-
tainers. Spotting MacDon-
ald's artistic potential despite
protests that she was not an
artist, McKinney convinced
MacDonald to take classes.
McKinneywas right.
"She is so encouraging,"
MacDonald said. "She draws
it out of you: whatever you
feel or like. There are so many
levels on which she inspires
me. Each time we' work to-
gether, I develop more confi-
dence. Tatiana always has
something to give there
are always new ideas. Bril-
liant, just brilliant."
Potter Ann Darr became
a fan when McKinney's
daughter contacted her re-
questing use of her kiln for
her clay work. She invited
the potter to attend one of
her mother's classes and,
after one session, she was
hooked.
"Of the 10 teachers I have
had, she is the best," Darr
said. "She is such a refined
and gifted lady like royal-
ty to me. She helps each stu-
dent individually and cri-
tiques the work gently but
with great insight."
A few years ago, McKin-
ney moved to Dunnellon to
be closer to her family.
Despite the distance, her
students continue to keep
in torch between classes by
sending her originals or
photos of their works in
progress. Telephone con-
tacts follow including her
suggestions and comments.
Marie Scott, who assists
during her classes, de-
scribes the teacher as "her
mentor and friend." From
time to time she drives stu-
dents to McKinney's home
for mini salons.
McKinney received the
first ever Lifetime Achieve-
ment Award from the Arts
and Culture Alliance in April
2007.
McKinney remains an in-
spiration to students, family
and friends. Long before
there were many women in
the workplace, she man-
aged to combine the life of a
devoted wife entertaining
diplomats and foreign dig-
nitaries while being a busy
mother of two sons and a
daughter and also pursuing
a professional life as an
artist. Long after most peo-
ple have hung up their
career gear, she continues to
paint, to develop innovative
techniques and to touch the
lives of her students with
her talent and friendship.

And now ... The News


from Ecineville


BY TED RANK
STAFF ESCRITOR


Hang on to your sanity,
ladies and gentlemen. It's
time for News from
Ecineville.
As the Ecineville Sun
news team arrives at Retta
and Debtor Beretta's house
at 3:30 a m., the couple are
just completing their final
preparations for the long
day ahead.
Credit cards at the re-
ady, gifts to return with
receipts attached to them,
body armor on and flyers
from every store in hand,
Retta and Debtor are
ready.
Because of the Sun's lat-
est technology, although
you are reading this now in
your newspaper, we start-
ed broadcasting this story
live on the webcast and
satellite phone cam report
from the Beretta's house at
3:30 a.m.
Thursday, Dec. 26,2007.
Christmas gift return
and the first shopping day
after Christmas.
The only other day this
reporter can remember that
had the potential to cause
such citywide pandemoni-
um was when those squir-
rels massed on the big hill
overlooking the Booden
Woods in East Ecineville
and threatened to attack
the city.
The "Official First Day of
Shopping After Christmas,"
as it has been dubbed by
the Ecineville Chamber of
Commercialism, officially
begins at 4 a.m. today.
So if you are standing


there in your robe on your
front stoop reading this at
6 a.m., first, close your
robe, and second, get
dressed and get shopping,
people you're already
two hours late.
"The Ecineville retail
and restaurant sector in-
tends to make this not
only our first Official First
Day of Shopping After
Christmas, but our finest,"
said Vaughn Momo, ECC
assistant director of offi-
a .


cial statements in an unof-
ficial statement leaked to
the press on Christmas.
Day. "Special events will be
taking place throughout
the day. I'm pleased and
happy to repeat the news
that we have, in fact,
retained Johnny and the
Ghostly Trio, who will be
playing reggae all day in the
middle of the roundabout
It will be a beautiful day, all
the stores and restaurants
will be open and people
will have a wonderful
time. Ecineville, as you
know, means insanity."
ECC released a state-
ment later in the day that
stated, "Regarding. Mr.
Momo's statement issued
earlier today, please sub-
stitute the word 'fabulous'


for the word 'insanity,'
thank you."
Well, it's 10 a.m. here on
West Ecineville Avenue,
where thousands have ga-
thered to return items,
purchase new items and
enjoy the lovely Easter de-
corations that have been
set up to remind folks of
the next big shopping day
when they can substitute
buying stuff for a lack of
creative and spiritual sat-
isfaction.
"I am happy to be here
right after Christmas to be
passing out ultra-high-
trans-fat candy to over-
weight children to remind
their parents Easter will be
here before you know it,"
said a 7-foot-tall bunny
roaming down the middle
of the street. The bunny
refused to give his name.
Hope you enjoyed this
-first live webcast of
ANNFE.
Come join us down-
town. We heard some guy
will be here at 4 p.m.
dressed up as Uncle Sam.
to remind us to buy fire-
works and food for the
Fourth of July.
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, some-
times, just sometimes, it
seems like shoveling 6
inches of snow is easier
than shoveling 6 feet of
manure here in Ecineville.

Maybe we need another tea party


BY JOE GIORGIANNI
HUMOR COLUMNIST

The perspicacity of the
foibles and lack of profundi-
ty of those running for polit-
ical office becomes murkier
with each passing political
debate.
I'm confident that the
one with the best prevarica-
tion, just before the elec-
tion, which seems certain to
be sometime during this
century, will be the one pla-
cing his/her hand on the
Bible that is outlawed in
every school in the country.
What? How can that be?
The words, "So help me
God" are not allowed in the
classroom, football field,
baseball stadium or govern-
ment office, yet the oath of
office is taken while the
hand is placed on some-
thing offensive to those rep-
resenting the minuscule
portion of our populace.
Am I missing something
here? Have the gumption
and backbone of those
hard-working folks whose
ancestors threw a whole
bunch of tea into the ocean,
those who made this coun-
try great, been lost .in the
rhetorical bovine scatology
fed to us by the quasi-pun-
dits in Washington?
Why are we not doing
something like that which


That was when a guy
named John Hancock, a
name often asked for by
folks wanting you to sign
something, tried to pur-
chase some tea from the
East India Company with-
out paying the horrific taxes
imposed on tea by the king
of England.
Enter Samuel Adams, a
prominent attorney before
he started his brewery, who
defended 01' John and got
him off the hook with the
king, but not before the Brit-
ish government made a deal
with India to reduce both
taxes and the number of
people the Indian govern-
ment trained to manage
convenience stores in the
New World.
On the eve of this histori-
cal day, a group of men and
one woman, reputed to be
an ancestor of Hillary Clin-
ton, boarded the Dart-
mouth, which had carried
the overly taxed tea from
India. Those who boarded
called themselves "the Sons
of Liberty," much like many
of those running for politi-
cal office are doing today.
They were scantily dis-
guised as Narragansett In-
dians, replete with knives,

clubs, hatchets and battery-
operated GPS systems,
which were made in India
before China bought the
manufacturing rights.
Those 'who were in
charge of watching the
ships learned that those
who were dressed as In-
dians were actually long-
shoremen and one long-
shorewoman who were up-
set because the king of
England had threatened
them with a 40-hour work
week.
They, the make-believe
Indians, went deep into the
hold of the ship and
brought forth that's what
they did in those days, they
brought forth more than
90,000 pounds of tea and
dumped it into what is now
the fountain in Harvard
Square.
Now, here is where the
story gets really interesting.
As a result of the actions
taken by the Sons of Liberty,
the British government en-
acted the Tea Act, which was
designed to prevent anyone
from dressing up like an
Indian. The Tea Act, which
was really all about tea, had

Ben Franklin, who until
this time was happy print-

kites, got involved' because
he, was very fond of tea.
So, he, Ben, offered to
reimburse the Indian mer-
chants for the entire am-
ount of tea that had been


thrown overboard. His offer
was refused, however, be-
cause he had key conditions
and strings attached.
First, he wanted all the
people of the New World to
come to the shores with
teacups to help clean up the
'mess made.by the "make-
believe" Indians. That didn't
work out, however, because
the loose leaves were very
difficult to handle.

nation that he would never
be able to collect a tax on
tea again, and decided
instead to start a war.
However, it should be
noted that the king of En-
gland at the time of the
Boston Tea Party that occ-
urred on Dec. 16. 1773, was a
guy named George III, who


died from a maddening dis-
ease called porphyria.
The treatment at the time
was to bleed the patient until
near fainting unlike our
own King George, who with
the help of a Constitutional
Congress, has decided to
bleed others.

The season is still shiny and bright


n:, L. L. '' _


Wes Schumacher and
members of the Venice
Symphony celebrated the
start of their season with a
lively Christmas concert.
Featured soloist Detlef
Scholz sang a medley of tra-
ditional Christmas carols
and performed the German
folk carol "Still, Still, Still."
The Hanukkah medley and
"Santa Claus: Christmas
Symphony" had people
wanting to jump out of their


seats and dance.
Many musicians were
featured throughout the
concert, including Richard
Adams, Beth Morrison, Ka-
ren Romig, Gayle Williams,
Leslie Ann Jones and
Rebecca Finly. Violinist
Donna Smith showed her
versatility and played the
keyboard during "Silent
Night" and "The Nutcracker
Ballet Suite."
Music Director Wes
Schumacher announced
the program and included
several pieces in order to
tease the audience and get
it ready for the spring con-
cert. Among the selections
was "Sleigh Ride," an audi-
ence favorite.
. As, with every concert,
Schumacher brings a magic
to the Church of the Naz-
arene when the Venice Sym-
phony performs. He selects
outstanding musicians and
brings a joy to their perfor-


mance that radiates th-
rough the audience.
Bravo, maestro, and
members of the Venice

Tonya Sauppe and Mar-

all 'dressed up for the event,
as did Brooke Loehrig,

The special person of this

This exciting teacher and
musician energized the hol-
iday concert at the Church

sion for music sang to the

in working alongside his stu-
dent Theo Breenwarmed the

Gizmo, the cat, is a
beautiful 10-year-old girl
whose owner
just died.
The owner's son, who just
happens to be a veterinari-
an, lives out of state and
requested Gizmo be eutha-
nized.

Fortunately, the local veteri-
narian's staff thought differ-
ently and called. EARS for
help. What makes this situ-
ation unique is that Gizmo is
diabetic and requires daily
insulin injections.
Because of this, she will be
difficult to place. We need
two things here: One is
underwriting to help pay for
Gizmo's ongoing medical
bills. Second is a foster or
permanent home for this lit-
tle girl.
Gizmo's situation under-
scores a difference in atti-
tudes. Her owner's callous
son considered her to be
expendable. A Sarasota
County veterinarian believes
she deserves a chance to
live EARS does too. EARS
is all about life.
Is there anyone out there -
or several someones who
would like to help with
Gizmo?
