United Way is meeting its goals
Despite or perhaps because of
-- the downturn in the economy.

Publix employees present a check for $146,100 to the United Way of South Sarasota County Monday as UW board
members and participating agency representatives look on. The South County United Way campaign is within
$10,000 of its goal in spite of a local recession.

STAFF WRITER


It looked like photo time at a
family reunion.
Folks lined up and bunched
together, several rows deep, in
front of a Publix in South Venice
Monday.
Publix employees, represen-
tatives of area nonprofit organi-


zations and employees and
board members of the United
Way of South Sarasota County
gather like this once a year to
celebrate the supermarket chain's
extreme dedication to United
Way even when times are
tough.
Publix's $337,000 donation
this year to the Venice agency
comes despite an economic


downturn in which many peo-
ple are hurting financially and
employee-giving programs would
not be expected to generate
large sums for United Way agen-
cies.
"It's one awesome way to help
many organizations within the
community at one time," said

LaMorte




conviction



affirmed


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


By a 2-1 decision filed Friday,
Florida's Second District Court
of Appeal rejected former Venice
High School teacher and coach
James LaMorte's challenge to his
convictions on sexual battery
charges.
LaMorte pleaded no contest
in 2006 to charges of sexual bat-
tery, attempted sexual activity
with a child and lewd, lascivious,
or indecent act upon or in the
presence of a child and was sen-
tenced to 21 years in state
prison. The two victims were
VHS students, and one of them
was on LaMorte's swim team.
Although he didn't contest
the charges, LaMorte reserved
his right to argue on appeal that
the statute of limitations had
run on the offenses. The acts
against the victim known as
"D.P" occurred between August
1981 and February 1984. The
acts committed against victim
"W.K." took place between


September 1990 and June 1992.
'Without merit'
Trial court Judge Andrew
Owens had rejected that argu-
ment because he found that a
statute that extends the limita-
tions period for "any offense
based upon misconduct in
office by a public officer or
employee" applied to LaMorte.
That statute extends the limi-
tations period for two years from
the time the accused leaves pub-
lic office or employment. La-
Morte retired from the school
system in February 2005. He was
charged in June 2005 after five
men came forward and gave
statements to police.
While acknowledging that no
Florida court had yet decided
the issue, judges E.J. Salcines
and Craig Villanti concluded
that the plain language of
Florida Statute 775.15(3)(b) ap-
pears to apply to teachers as
public employees, and not just

The incentives to "go solar" in
Florida have never been better.
Two recent state sponsored
programs are breathing new life
into a growing solar thermal hot
water and solar photovoltaics or
"PV" market.

lature adopted HB 7135, an en-

things, renews the Florida Solar

BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Before starting construction
on Tra Ponti project on the
island, Mike Miller, president of
the Waterford Companies made
changes because of market con-
ditions, the economy and plan-
ning considerations.
A condo-hotel, the original
centerpiece of the project, is no
longer viable because mortgage
money is not available, he said.
Also, the city prefers accommo-
dations for transient visitors,
with facilities for business meet-
ings, weddings and parties. This
will bring people to stay on the
island while they participate in
these functions, and they can
walk downtown instead of dri-
ving.
"We're just lucky we have this
project while residential is slow
and commercial development is
slowing, until the national econ-
omy picks up and in turn drives
our economy," said Miller.
Until the economy rebounds
and insurance and property tax
issues are resolved, putting more
money in people's pockets, baby


boomers will not be ready to
move again. They're not going to
buy when it is a bad idea, said
Miller.
Until then, he is focusing on
Tra Ponti to carry Waterford
Companies through the slow
time and helping the downtown,
because he thinks they are going
to see a little less activity from
both locals and visitors.
Introducing this project may
have helped the Venice Little
Theatre bring its convention to
Venice in 2010 and could lead to
more conventions, he said.
A project totaling $60 million,
Tra Ponti's 228-room hotel is
undergoing a hospitality study
by a consultant to establish the
economics of the area and the
feasibility of that number of
hotel rooms. When completed,
the study will be reviewed to
determine the hotel operator,
possibly Hilton, Marriott or
Sheraton.
Two people are interested in
starting an upscale steak and
seafood restaurant to comple-
ment the hotel and banquet

Developer hopes to bring hospital to North Port


BY ANNE
KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

For decades, North Port
residents have wanted a
hospital. In the past few
years, residents have even
lobbied for one.


"Everyone is try-
ing to serve a
greater number of
people, but no one
is moving to North
Port because peo-
ple are already
going to them."
Developer
Frank Menke





In 1993, commissioners
questioned why Sarasota
Memorial Hospital wasn't
willing to build in town.
In 2004, 22,000 resi-
dents flooded the Agency
for Health Care Adminis-
tration in Tallahassee with
letters. A certificate of


need was preliminarily is-
sued to Health Manage-
ment Associates to build a
hospital, but then a judge
ruled against that decision
in an administrative ap-
peal.
Since then, seven cycles
have passed without HMA
or any other company fil-
ing for a certificate of need
to build in North Port.
In the meantime, Sara-
sota Memorial has pur-
chased land and has
promised to build a free-
standing emergency room
there, off Toledo Blade
Boulevard.
"Everyone is trying to
serve a greater number of
people, but no one is mov-
ing to North Port because
people are already going
to them," said local devel-
oper Frank Menke, who
recently held a meeting
with city staff, several
commissioners and com-
mission candidates to in-
troduce the idea of Florida
Hospital to them. He invit-
ed two of the company's
executives to the meeting
as well. "We need to find a
hospital company that
doesn't have any con-
flicts."
Menke wants to mix
things up.


SUN PHOTO BY KHARLI ROSE, krose@sun-herald.com
Since there is no hospital in North Port, North Port Emergency Medical Technicians transport-
ed an elderly man to out of the area for precautionary measures after a motorcycle incident on
Sumter Boulevard.


"No one in demograph-
ics would disagree that
North Port won't be the
largest city in Southwest
Florida," Menke said, not-
ing the city's population
growth and expected ex-


pension forecasting more
than 130,000 residents by
2030. "North Port is the
largest city in Florida not
to have an acute care hos-
pital in 2004, and that dis-
tinction continues today."


Validation
Menke has offered a site
in the northwest quadrant
of the city's Activity Center
5 near the intersection
of Price and Toledo Blade
boulevards on land bor-


during the Snover Water-
way to Florida Hospital
as a possible medical cam-
pus location.
"I have proposed to
these guys a site I own,"
Menke said. "If a hospital
comes to North Port, I'm
still a winner. The commu-
nity needs the validation
of a hospital. I'm not
against an ER coming, but
I do think it's not meeting
the needs of the commu-
nity."
He said patients at a
free-standing ER would
still need to be transported
to Sarasota Memorial Hos-
pital, a trip that would tie
up ambulances for a pos-
sible three-hour round
trip to Sarasota.
Menke said a hospital
would also bring other
business to the city, a
point he stressed to city
Economic Development
Manager Allan Lane.
Florida Hospital, most-
ly known because of its
main campus in Orlando,
is run by Adventist Health
System, which operates 37
hospitals in the eastern
United States with 17 in
Florida.

Protect your

credit cards
A week ago my wife,
Kathy, used her Visa credit
card to buy three airline
tickets for trips we are
planning. The purchases
were approved and she
received confirmation
numbers from the airlines.
Within one hour she
received a telephone mes-
sage from Visa requesting
that she contact one of its
investigators as soon as
possible at a phone num-
ber provided.
She called the number
and was informed that there
were large charges recently
put on her card, and before
those charges were added to
her account, Visa needed to
verify that she actually
incurred the purchase of the
tickets in question.
The person went on to
explain that Visa is always
on the alert for possible
illegal use of customer
credit cards by persons
engaged in identity theft.
She confirmed that she
had in fact made the pur-
chases and thanked Visa
for its diligence.
This type of standard
investigation on the part of
credit card companies in
their efforts to protect cus-
tomers from criminal activ-
ity should go a long way to
alleviate fears consumers
may have about possible
illegal use of their cards. It
certainly did for us, and I
personally know that many
credit card investigators are
former federal, state and
local law enforcement offi-
cers, and reports of possi-
ble fraud will be in experi-
enced hands should prob-
lems develop.
Here are some things
you can do to protect your
credit cards:
Do not sign your card
when you receive it. Write
"See ID" on the signature

Getting King warrants was methodical process


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
STAFF WRITER
Around 4:40 a.m. on
Jan. 18, 12th Circuit judge
Robert Bennett was roust-
ed from his
sleep to
sign three
search
warrants:
one for Mi-
chael King's
house, one
for his
green Ca-
King maro and
one for Mi-
chael King himself.
King, 36, was a suspect
in the Jan. 17 abduction of


Denise Amber Lee, 21, a
North Port wife and moth-
er of two toddler sons.
Authorities identified him
as a suspect when they
found out he owned the
cell phone Denise used to
dial 9-1-1 at 6:14 p.m.
By 6:59 p.m., police were
racing to King's house on
Sardinia Avenue.
Officers were overheard
on the police scanner say-
ing they could hear voices
from inside the house.
Lacking a warrant, they
broke the glass around the
house to get inside under
"exigent circumstances,"
an exception to the Fourth
Amendment.


The doctrine allows
police to enter without a
warrant if a person's life is
believed to be in danger, if
a suspect is about to flee or
if evidence is about to be
destroyed.
Once inside, police
learned the voices were
from a TV, and no one was
inside. There was evidence
suggesting Lee was proba-
bly there earlier blan-
kets on the floor, wads of
duct tape with hair but
without a warrant, police
could not touch any of it.
For that they would
need a warrant.
Later that night, when
King was finally appre-


ended in his green Ca-
maro, police could look in-
side, and they even open-
ed the trunk hoping they
might find Lee there. Sev-
eral reports cite a shovel, a
piece of wood and other
items inside, but to collect
it they'd have to get a war-
rant.
The exceptions were
some evidence outside the
car a strand of hair on
the hood, and what could
have been bodily fluid on
the black grille cover. Be-
cause those items might
be lost or altered while the
car was being towed back
to the station, the exigent
circumstance exception


allowed police to take
them. But the shovel had
to wait.
Police were also allow-
ed to pat King down as
soon as he was stopped, to
assure he had no contra-
band or weapons. But to
examine him more closely,
a warrant was needed.
And that meant the 4
a.m. call to Judge Bennett.
The affidavits
Requesting a warrant
begins with an affidavit
from one or more of the
officers, summarizing the
situation, describing what
they want to search and
declaring what they expect

to find. That night, police
prepared three affidavits:
for King's house, his car
and for King himself.
These were among the
documents recently re-
leased in the case.
In the affidavit for the
house warrant, North Port
Detective Chris Morales
wrote, "Officers under exi-
gent circumstances enter-
ed the residence. (They)
observed a roll of duct tape
... (they) found on the
floor a pillow, blanket and
balled up duct tape that
had strands of long light
brown hair on it."
In the affidavit for the
car, Morales wrote, "I
could see in plain view a
five gallon red gas can ..., a
shovel ... and woman's
ring on the left rear pas-
senger seat."
In both cases, police
wanted to search for any
device or material that
could be used to bind a
human being; any hair,
blood or other fluids that
could have been left by
victim or suspect; and any
cloth that could be conta-
minated with evidence.
And there was the
catch-all clause for police
to seize "other implements
or devices that could be
used" in violation of laws.
The affidavit for King's
body requested a warrant
to take swab samples from
his body as well as to col-
lect loose hair or fibers.
Some of the samples were
meant for DNA testing.
Police also had a search
warrant prepared and exe-
cuted for King's red Cor-
vette, which he drove to his
family's house in Sanilac
County, Mich.
The execution
Police began acting on
the warrants almost as
soon as they were signed.
At 6 a.m., the search war-
rant was read to King. He
was then instructed to
stand on a drop-cloth, re-
move his clothes, piece by
piece. Each item was col-
lected and marked. Even
the cloth itself was wrap-
ped in case any hairs or
fibers landed there. He was
handed an orange prison
jumpsuit.
The warrant to search
the car either had to be
read to King or a copy left
inside the vehicle. Along
with papers, tools, cough
drops and a pack of Loon-
ey Tunes Baby Wipes, pol-
ice collected a gas can, tie-
down nylon ropes, a shov-
el, a wood banister, a flash-
light and a ring.
Inside the house, police
found a partial roll of duct
tape, a garbage bag of
trash (on top of which was
duct tape with hair), more
duct tape with hair on the
garage floor, a piece of
rope, several blankets and
pillows, a wad of duct tape
with hair on the main bed-
room floor, a framed wall
mirror on the bedroom
floor, and more duct tape
in the side yard.
All of these items were
methodically identified,
cataloged and delivered to
an appropriate laboratory
for analysis or stored in a
secure evidence locker.

Watch out for manatees on the move


A few Sundays ago, staff from Mote
Marine Laboratory and the Flor-
ida Wildlife Research Institute rescued
an injured manatee late in the after-
noon at Forked Creek in Englewood.
A few dozen residents of Overbrook
Gardens helped out. They pitched in to
lift the manatee a 7-foot, 560-pound
juvenile from the water into a large
truck, so that it could be transported to
the manatee rehabilitation center at
Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa.
According to one participant, Collin
Willis of Englewood, the manatee had a
punctured lung, and it kept struggling
and floating to the surface. It had been
struck by a boat, Willis said, possibly
one known to travel at a high speed
along the creek even though it's known
to be a favorite area for manatees.


It's still a common story, especially
this time of year when water tempera-
tures are rising and manatees are on the
move. And it's one that reminds us that
manatees, whether officially listed as
"imperiled" or "endangered," are still
vulnerable animals that need our pro-
tection.
Roughly 30 percent of all manatee
deaths in Florida are caused by boats or
personal watercraft, such as Jet Skis.
Some deaths and injuries are from pro-
pellers striking the animals; most are
from a bow strike. Minor boat strikes are
such frequent occurrences that marine
biologists use the markings to identify
individual manatees.
Manatees move quickly, at least for
1,000-pound sea cows. They are no
match for a speeding boat, however,


which is why the state


has staked out


speed zones to protect Florida's 3,000-
plus manatees.
It is important for boaters to observe
speed limits in manatee zones, espe-
cially during the springtime, when
manatees are migrating.
And there are other ways you can
help. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission advises boaters
to wear polarized sunglasses and look
out for signs of manatees on the move.
You may be able to see a flipper or an
unusual swirl of surface water. It also
suggests staying in deeper-water chan-
nels when possible, since manatees typ-
ically cruise the shallows.
Manatee protection may become
even more important this year with
possible funding cuts to rehabilitation


programs at Lowry Park, SeaWorld and
the Miami Seaquarium. Lowry Park could
lose $350,000 about half its budget if
cuts proposed by the state Fish and
Wildlife Commission go through.
Since 1991, Lowry Park has treated
nearly 200 manatees, according to the St.
Petersburg Times; in the past two years, it
has treated and released 22 animals.
The funding cut could affect service
to such an extent, Lowry Park veterinar-
ian David Murphy told the Times, "So
when the public calls with a manatee
behind their house that's bleeding from
a boat strike, there may no longer be
any place for that animal to go."
We'd like to think people will take
more care when out on the water. For
the time being, though, we'll probably
still need our manatee hospitals.


It's a good deal


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


Coming before the vot-
ers Tuesday are two items.
The first is a charter
amendment requiring a
unanimous vote of the
county commission to
change Urban Services
Boundary.
This is sort of curious
since the last growth
amendment that called for
a super-majority of four
votes to pass density
changes to the comp plan
was strongly challenged by
the business and develop-
er community. Now the
same groups are in favor of
a super-super-majority -
all five commissioners -
to change to the USB. This
just shows the power of the
popular vote.
The second ballot item
gives the county bonding
authority of up to $300
million in order to be able
to speed up construction
of items voters have al-
ready voted to complete
between now and 2024.
While it may look like new
taxes, it is not at all, just
using the revenue from the
1-cent sales surtax exten-
sion we voted for, to pay
off bonds that can get pro-
jects we voted for done
much sooner. This money
can only be spent on pro-
jects that have already
been identified.
Some might say we are
borrowing against our
future, and of course, it
certainly is to an extent
putting more debt on a
county that does not have
a lot of debt. The big plus
of this deal is that it gives
us a chance to help jump
start the economy.
There is $100 million in
planned projects that can
come on line in 12 months
and $190 million in pro-
jects that can be moved up
in schedule. (I am not sure
why the need for $300 mil-
lion, but I assume the
county will identify others
it can move up).
The $300 million repre-
sents less than half of the
money the sales surtax is
to generate for all projects,
some $680 million. Much
of that goes to the cities,
which is not included in
this referendum and may
actually be a point of dis-
appointment. To the peo-
ple in South County there
may be city projects like
the Performing Arts Center
that we wanted more than
anything, and it's not in-


cluded. Again, this money
is just for county projects.
At some point the local
entities could do a similar
bond vote.
Since the ballot doesn't
tell you what the projects
are, I thought I would help
identify the projects you
are voting to speed up,
especially in South County.
A lot of the money is for
items that are not too
thrilling but are necessary.
These include the Dona
Bay watershed project, to
help design and construct
a system to provide usable
water from this source.
This is only a piece of what
is needed for that project.
There is also some
money for a stormwater
project in the Alligator
Creek/South Venice area,
as well as a sediment man-
agement plan. I assume,
but it is not clear, that this
includes bringing sewers
to this area, a longtime
controversial and needed
service.
There are some things
that will be nice additions.
About $6 million or $7 mil-
lion is in improvements to
facilities at most South
County beaches. Casper-
sen would get much-need-
ed restrooms, as would
Nokomis, which is already
in the works. The Nokomis
one is dubbed a "light-
house" restroom, which is
kind of neat. When you
really need to go bad, it will
light your way.
The Caspersen rest-
rooms would be done in
conjunction with the city
ofVenice. Manasota Beach
would also get restrooms.
There would be a
much-needed boat ramp
on Blackburn Point Road, I
assume near where the old
Flying Bridge restaurant
was. This would include
some park-like facilities.
Your vote would help
enhance the libraries,
which would get technolo-
gy enhancements as they
try desperately to keep up
with the new technology.
They would get more than
$7 million.
A couple of parks are
included for South County.
One is Tuscano Park on the
east side of the Intra-
coastal tied to the Venetian
Waterway Park in South
Venice. This would be a
joint project, including
funds from Venice Area
Beautification Inc. and
foundations.
The other is upgrading
Sleeping Turtle Preserve, a
beautiful nature area by
the Myakka River. The
money would be for park-
ing lots, kayak launches,
picnic shelters and other
park amenities, including
an information kiosk.
There is a health facility
for Englewood and up-
grades to one in North

No, it wasn't that Bob Hope


LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Readers:
Bill Reardon ofVenice wrote in asking if anyone knew
how Bob Hope Drive in Nokomis got its name specif-
ically, whether there was a connection to the entertainer
Bob Hope. Here's what an anonymous reader wrote, and
former city archivist Dorothy Korwek confirmed in a let-
ter of her own:
"The answer is simple. My grandparents retired to
Florida and bought land on Bayshore Road. Initially the
land had a wood-frame house right in the middle of it.
My family lived in the home back in the '60s. (We were
evacuated in the middle of the night when Hurricane
Donna paid our area a visit).
Grampa moved the house to Laurel when he devel-
oped the land and had Elk Inlet dug. "ELK" are my
grandfather's initials.
"Bob Hope" is named after one of, if not the first, cou-
ple to purchase a lot and build their home: Bob and his
wife. Hope. Buerhaus (spelling of last name may not be
accurate). We have heard people ask this question many
times over the years and have been able to solve the
mystery of whether or not the Bob Hope actually had


any connection to our area."
Stop experiments
on animals
Editor:
In February, three key
U.S. government agencies
arrived at a revolutionary
agreement to begin phas-
ing out animal testing and
instead pursue innovative
and animal-free methods
to evaluate the safety of
new drugs and chemicals.
The agreement is based
on a groundbreaking re-
port, which concluded
that ending reliance on
animal tests will allow sci-
entists to more accurately
predict health risks.
Yet the National Insti-
tutes of Health still devotes
about two-thirds of its
$29.2 billion budget to ani-
mal research, including
many millions spent on
cruel and ridiculous ani-
mal experiments to study
the effects of addictive
drugs on humans. It's time
for the NIH to fully apply


the latest scientific ratio-
nale and scale back fund-
ing of such wasteful and
grotesque animal experi-
ments.
Please send an e-mail to
ScientificAffairs@mail.NI
H.Gov and tell directors
Zerhouni and Norkla Bra-
vo to stop funding nico-
tine experiments on ani-
mals and instead redirect
funds toward prevention,
education and cessation
programs.

Laughing and
looking smart
Editor:
Thank you for publish-
ing Mary Kay Ruppel's col-
umn, if we don't laugh,
we'll look stupid.
It was my laugh for the

entertaining and well writ-
ten.


Mary Kay's columns are

History will show
Bush was right
Editor:
This is a response to a
recent letter to the editor
from Mr. Bosch.
He hypothesized that
the liberation of Iraq,
which resulted in the
removal of one of history's
most brutal and despica-
ble dictators and offered
the populace an opportu-
nity to embrace liberty
and freedom, was a "colos-
sal mistake."
Mr. Bosch for some rea-
son chooses to overlook
the fact that we are at war
with an enemy far more
dangerous to our freedom
and liberty than those we
faced and defeated in
World War II.
I am profoundly grate-
ful that we have John Mc-
Cain, a proven patriot with
the intelligence and guts
to lead us and the free
world against our enemies
who despise our freedom
and would enslave the
world.
On the other side, it's a
pity that Mr. Obama and
Mrs. Clinton both espouse
a "cut and run" policy and
ignore the reality that we
are in a fight for our lives
and freedom.
It is further interesting
to me that Mr. Bosch and
his fellow Democrats con-
tinue their baseless char-
acter assassination of our
president, a God-fearing,
principled man who hon-
ors his wife, respects his


office by his personal
actions and does his best
to meet the threats and
actions of our enemies.
George W Bush is not
running. John McCain is
and is his own man. Both
are patriots. It's shameful
that partisan cheap shots
are all the Democrats have
to offer while pushing for
exactly what al-Qaida and
our other extremist ene-
mies want us to do cut
and run.

GOP is out of touch
Editor:
Bringing guns to work is
going to save lives? You
have got to be out of your
mind. The reasons why
Rep. Kreegel voted in favor
of the "Bring your gun to
work" bill, HB 503, sound
like they all came from the
National Rifle Association.
The fact this bill passed
speaks volumes for the
special influence the NRA
has. Thank you, Florida
Legislature and particular-
ly Rep. Kreegel, for taking
our state one step further
away from the safety and
security we deserve. Your
decision goes a long way
toward proving you are out
of touch.
I also felt favorably
about Vern Buchanan un-
til recently. I've been get-
ting e-mails for a while
from him. I appreciate be-
ing informed. He even
asks a survey question.
Great, I thought, he wants
to know what his con-
stituents think.

Support your local


volunteer department


HOWARD BEARSE
GUEST COLUMNIST



This month's message is
about the importance of
your dues and donations,
which keep the Nokomis
Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment operating.
Everyone is feeling the
pinch from the economic
crisis. Fuel prices have
jumped dramatically and
many have lost their jobs.
Still, we need your support
to keep our community
safe.
Since 1949, the NVFD
has been serving the emer-
gency needs of this com-
munity. The Nokomis Vol-
unteer Fire Department
operates out of two fire sta-
tions the main station at
111 Pavonia Road and the
station at 1930 North
Tamiami Trail, which is a
shared facility with Sarasota
County Fire Department
Rescue 23.
Volunteer firefighters
staff these stations with a
minimum of five state-certi-
fied firefighter/EMTs, 24
hours a day, 365 days a year.
The NVFD has 70 vol-
unteers, 34 firefighter/
EMTs, two firefighter para-
medics and 34 firefighter/
first responders.
Your donations are
what keep this vital service
available to the communi-
ty. The NVFD serves the
areas from Blackburn
Point Road to the north,
Casey Key to the west and
to the Venice city limits on
the south and east (28
square miles) 200 miles
of paved road, 50 miles of
waterways, more than
12,000 homes and more
than 1,000 businesses.
Property owners have a
vested interest in this orga-
nization. Unlike other vol-
unteer fire departments
that receive operating tax
revenues from their mu-


nicipalities, there are no
fire taxes levied from Sara-
sota County on residents
or businesses in Nokomis.
There is no charge for
emergency medical ser-
vices response from NV-
FD. Sarasota County Fire
Department does, howev-
er, charge an EMS fee for
the ambulance.
The NVFD responded
to 1,274 emergency calls in
2007; to date in 2008 we
have responded to 584
emergency calls, an in-
crease of 18 percent over
last year. The average re-
sponse time is less than
five minutes to all emer-
gencies.
Our firefighters contin-
ually train with an average
of 30 hours per person
each month. The training
consists of the latest fire
and EMS skills and tech-
niques.


To date in 2008
NVFD has re-
sponded to 584
emergency calls.

Your firefighters contin-
ually keep updated on new
businesses, buildings and
the placement of new

LET'EM HAVE IT: SHOULD THE CITY OF VENICE TRY TO REGAIN STATE FUNDING FOR A BUSINESS PARK AT

Want an adjustment? Call your chiropractor


Remember. Those homeowners who are unhappywith
their taxes and are considering appealing to the value
adjustment board might want to know the names of the
five members. Two are elected members of the school
board: Shirley Brown and Carol Todd. Three are elected
county commissioners: Shannon Staub, Paul Mercier and
Joe Barbetta.You probablywon't get much satisfaction from
them regarding your taxes, but you can remember their
names if they run for re-election. I know I will.


Harping. I'm calling
about Bob Vedder's col-
umn again. What is his
problem with the people
of Golden Beach? I can't
understand it. It seems like
he has a very big problem
with us over here about the
airport and the noise and
all. If the city, or whoever's
going to pay for it, wants to
pay $53 million to put that
airport in order for jets,
why don't they move it out
on 1-75? I've lived in
Golden Beach for 40 years
and I have no problem
with the light planes. The
problem is trying to make
a jetport out of a small air-
port. Move it out to 1-75
where you have more room.
And Bob Vedder, he lives
over in Nokomis on the
water, and when they were
talking about putting a boat
ramp in the vicinity of his
house, he had an absolute
fit about it because he didn't
want everybody parking
there. But yet, he's got this
problem with the people of
Golden Beach complaining.
He's got a problem with the
people who were elected
from Golden Beach, but
they were elected because
they have more sense about
them than the people who
were in there, who were his
pets. Because they didn't
get in, he has a problem.
They're the people he
sucked up to and they did-
n't get in and now he's
picking on the people from
Golden Beach. The people
from Golden Beach ought
to stop their subscriptions
to the Gondolier Sun if he
keeps harping on this
problem.
Bounty. Get rid of our
lousy lizards by issuing $25
permits to trappers and
give back a $10 bounty for
each lizard caught. We'd be
lizard-free in one year.
Enough. Let the airport
people with money fly
somewhere else. We've got
enough planes.

Port.
What is not shown is
any upgrading of roads,
which likely will take
longer to bring on line and
thus can not be fast-
tracked, which is the pur-
pose of this bond issue. Of
course, we don't much
care since none of the road
money goes to the South
County area anyway, ex-
cept for bringing Honore
Avenue to Laurel Road. If
only it were for the bypass.
This is one referendum
item we can vote on that is
really a no-brainer. It just
takes money we have


approved and spends it
earlier so we can get the
things we want to make
our area nicer. Heck, if we
don't do it now we might
not even be around to ever
see them completed.
Just to make it compli-
cated, though, the word-
ing on the ballot does not
make it quite that easy to
understand. The title is,
"Bond Referendum for the
funding of infrastructure
surtax projects from infra-
structure surtax pro-
ceeds."
That alone is enough to
scare away just about any-


body. Then the text of the
question is a run-on sen-
tence that refers to Section
5.2D of the charter. Who
will have any idea what
that means?
Anyway, if you can get
past the wording, it is a
good deal.
Please vote Tuesday.

LEI I hlSfromPage6A


Last week, I got an e-
mail asking this question:
'As Congress debates
whether to raise or cut fed-
eral taxes, do you believe
you pay too much, too lit-
tle or just enough in feder-
al income taxes?" Really?
I wrote the representa-
tive asking him not to waste
my time asking questions
with obvious answers. Then
on April 17, I got an e-mail
from him stating he sup-
ported legislation that
would make permanent the
tax cuts from 2001 and
2003. Weren't those the
same cuts that overwhelm-
ingly help the wealthiest
families?
I'm afraid the Repub-
lican Party in Florida and
nationwide is taking great
pains to tell us that they've
been in power too long. It's
time to sweep them out of


office.

Only MEA has
the credentials
Editor:
As the Airport Advisory
Board member who made
both motions recommend-
ing that our city council for-
ward the Airport Master
Plan Update and the Airport
Layout Plan to the Federal
Aviation Administration,
clarification of an April 30
article in the Gondolier Sun
is necessary.
Both motions for ap-
proval that I made were
predicated on the MPU
and ALP, properly devel-
oped and submitted by
the MEA-Hansen group, at
the direction of council.
These documents were


prepared in accordance
with FAA guidelines, circu-
lars, directives and gener-
ally accepted airport man-
agement practices that are
utilized throughout the
United States.
The MEA-Hansen group
has an exemplary record
in these matters, which is
why it enjoys FAA autho-
rization. I must question
whether the Tom Brener-
Venice Neighborhoods Co-
alition plan which you ref-
erenced which I have
not seen, nor has any mem-
ber of the Airport Advisory
Board, to my knowledge
- has the same level of
compliance and account-
ability as those our board
forwarded for council's
assessment.

John J.Yurosko

Get to work. Governor
for the people, how about
putting your action where
your mouth is and not
your nose. Like they al-
ways say, "Follow the mon-
ey." You and your Repub-
lican henchmen and -
women know damn well
where it is, in the coffers of
your affluent buddies. You
know, the ones that Jeb
took care of, following the
lead of his idiot brother. If
you and your cohorts want
to stay in office, you had
better stop treating your
fellow Floridians as brain
dead. You saw what hap-
pened on a national level;
well, you are next. So get
your nose out of McCain's
derriere and get back to
work for your constituents.
Disappointed. Relative
to the new city council
members, Bob Vedder's
column really hit the nail
on the head. I voted for the
dynamic trio thinking it
would be a refreshing
change. What a disap-
pointment they've been.
Seems like they're just try-
ing to take care of personal
issues and comforts. Noth-
ing like getting your con-
versation interrupted for
10 or 15 seconds. It looks
like they're spending about
90 percent of their time on
airport issues, which is a
personal item, and 10 per-
cent on the rest of it.
The waiting. I'm calling


about the north bridge.
The other day my friend
and I were walking over
the bridge about 7:30 in
the evening and all of a
sudden the bells rang and,
of course, the bridge was
going up. Nothing was
coming on the left side, so
I thought there must be
something coming from
the east side. We waited
and we waited and noth-
ing came. We looked at our
side and nothing was com-
ing. We thought, "What's
the matter, is the bridge
broke?" Pretty soon, a
small, 20-to-24-foot sail-
boat came along. No sail,
but must have had a small
outboard motor on it. We
waited and waited and
waited until it finally came
to the bridge. The wait
period was 25 to 30 min-
utes. I counted 32 cars on
my side and the same on
the other side. There were
64 cars waiting for one lit-
tle sailboat that wasn't
even in sight when the
bridge was up. What was
the bridgetender thinking?
Nothing new. I just
want to say that Bob Ved-
der's complaints about the
airport are ridiculous. Real-
ly, they reflect the views of
about 250 plane owners,
most of whom don't even
live in Venice, and they
have nothing to do with
23,000 people who are res-
idents. And for years there
were three people from
Golden Beach on the air-
port advisory board, be-
fore Ed Martin ever came
on the scene. Paul Hallo-
way was the chair, Kim
Stephens and Jim Leis
were on the board, and
they're still there. Ed Mar-
tin named only one new


person, Jim Marble; and
he's a person who's been
trying to solve citywide
problems the impact of
the golf course and Gulf
Shores. Marble's efforts to
develop a new airport plan
with community and busi-
ness leaders is in marked
contrast to the AAB, in-
cluding Mr. Carlucci, none
of whom provided any
new answers to the city for
solving their problems. I'm
sorry I have to say it, but
Mr. Vedder should re-
examine this whole thing
more carefully.
Unflagging. My sincere
condolences to the family
of Mike Treanor on his
passing. Having known
Mike for many years, I feel
he is no doubt worthy of all
the accolades and tributes
given him. That being said,
there is one other tribute
that should have been
given to him, yet it was
decided by the police chief
that it would not take
place, that being the low-
ering of the flag to half-
staff, at least on the day of
his funeral. The weekend
after Mike's passing, four
TV stations reported on
the passing of a Lee Coun-
ty sheriff's deputy who had
suffered a heart attack
while playing in a charity
football game. Despite the
officer not having passed
away in the line of duty,
the Lee County sheriff, out
of respect for the fallen
officer's years of service,
had no problem lowering
their flag. Given Mike Trea-
nor's 22 years of service to
the Venice Police Depart-
ment, not to mention the
positive influence he had
on so many in the com-
munity, Chief Williams
should have done the
same for Mike. Rest in
peace, Mike. Godspeed.

VNC misrepresented
Venice Neighborhoods
Coalition President Tom
Brener sent this e-mail to
city council members last
week in response to a
Gondolier Sun article that
ran April 30:
"The Gondolier distort-
ed and misrepresented
our message in today's
paper. So there is no con-
fusion, I was not inter-


viewed by anyone from
the Gondolier, and the
Venice Neighborhoods Co-
alition is not joining the
chorus of airport business
interests who would like
to see our Council rush
through an ill-considered
airport plan. Our concern
is not that the city might
be 'confusing or annoy-
ing' the FAA, our concern
is that whatever plan we
submit, it should be one
that benefits the city by
keeping this airport safe,
and compatible with the
surrounding residential
character of Venice.
"The VNC would like
the council to submit the
plan that is best for the
City, not a plan that is
overly compromised in
order to elicit the FAA's
approval. It may take a
year or longer to get this
right, we think that would
be time well spent."

Fire medic joins

City of Venice Fire De-
partment fire medic Jerry
Collins will join Venice
Police Capt. Tom McNulty
and Public Information
Officer Pam Johnson in
disseminating informa-
tion for the city. His area of
expertise is the fire depart-
ment.
Collins has worked as a
Venice firefighter for sev-
eral years. He will add
public information to his
other duties.


Green tax league?
The Gondolier Sun re-
ceived an unsigned copy of
a letter to the Venice Tax-
payers League informing it
the writer "will quit the VTL
after all these years."
"What the hell hap-
pened to this club of tax-
payers? One would now
think it is a chapter of the
Sierra Club. Think green.
Blab. Blab. Blab. Same old
broken record singing
green tunes. Come on all,
change the name of the
VTL to the Venice Greens-
Solar League."

Prom night warning
Venice High School stu-
dents anticipating the
prom night Masquerade
Ball at the Ritz-Carlton on
May 9 take note.
This warning is posted
on the school Web site:
"Any VHS student who is
found in a Ritz-Carlton
Hotel room before or after
prom will not be allowed
to participate in the gradu-
ation ceremony on May
30."
Prom check-in begins
at 6:15 p.m. and ends at
11:30 p.m. Prom court, in-
cluding the king and
queen, will be announced
at 10 p.m.
How would the school
know if a group of stu-
dents decided to pay for a
room that night to extend
the evening's festivities?
The Web site states "a VHS

ing at the hotel."

GIVING from Page 1A

Mary Ann Daugherty,
assistant store manager at
the Publix Supermarket at
U.S. 41 and Jacaranda
Boulevard in South Venice.
Buoyed by donors like
Daughter, executives of
United Way agencies in
the region are cautiously
optimistic that they will
survive the downturn.
"What we've experi-
enced is honestly an
increase in the number of
donors as well as the
amount they are donating,"
said Cecy Glenn, chief exec-
utive officer of United Way
of Charlotte County.
Donating more when
many people are strug-
gling financially is one
aspect of what some call
the "psychology of giving."
"Americans give be-
cause they fundamentally
believe in our Judeo Chris-
tian heritage," said the Rev.
Bill Clough, professor of
Pastoral Counseling at
Argosy University in Sara-
sota. "It's a karmic law that
when you give, it's good for
everybody. It improves the
goodness of the universe.
"I think that's absolute-


ly true," said Alex Young,
president and chief execu-
tive officer of United Way
of Sarasota County. "When
we take a look at people's
motivations to give, there
are a number of key dri-
vers. Understanding the
needs of others always
comes up in the top three.
"Different donors are
motivated by different
things. Friends ask (for
donations). Some people
like recognition. It's not
the same for everyone, but
the perception that there
is a need is key."
Encouraging support
United Way agencies try
to be flexible and creative
in the types of employee
campaigns they encour-
age businesses and orga-
nizations to run. They try
to "accommodate the do-
nor and accommodate the
corporation," said Steve
Brett, executive director of
the United Way of South
Sarasota County.
There are campaigns
run by students at area
schools. Students at Glen-
allen Elementary School
in North Port ran a "Got
Change to Change Lives"


program. They brought
spare change to school
and raised $1,500.
The need to feel
healthy, lucky and grateful
is strong when times are
tough. Glenn said folks
feel that way "because
they know someone in
need, probably more so
now than since Hurricane
Charley (in 2004).
"Just like 9/11 and
Hurricane Charley, those
who have, give. All we have
to do is tell somebody that a
neighbor is in trouble and
they step up and give. That's
what we've seen this year."
Terry Worthington is
president of United Way of
Central Florida, which
serves Hardee, Highlands
and Polk counties. He said
people who give under nor-
mal circumstances "realize
that as things become more
difficult, it's even more
important to give."
Generous employees
Publix, SunTrust Bank,
Mosaic and CF Industries
have some of the more
generous employee-giving
campaigns in the area.
Through April 29, the
United Way of South Sara-


sota County had raised
$740,000 of its current
$750,000 campaign. This
year's campaign supports
29 agencies that provide
44 programs that help
16,000 area families, ac-
cording to Brett.
Successful govern-
ment-sponsored employ-
ee-giving campaigns are
sponsored by the Sarasota
County School District,
the city of North Port, the
Sarasota County Tax Col-
lector's Office and the
Sarasota County Super-
visor of Elections Office.
Meanwhile, the United
Way of Charlotte County
has about 125 workplace
campaigns or "business
partners." Charlotte's goal
for the fiscal year that ended
March 31 was to raise $1
million. That money bene-
fits 33 agencies that support
more than 53,000 clients
and their families.
United Way of Central
Florida's $8.5 million for
fiscal year 2008-09 starts in
July and includes busi-
nesses in Hardee, High-
lands and Polk County.
Polk County is home base
for Publix.

rooms. This has not hap-
pened in the past because
summer activities in
Venice have not been pro-
moted.
"We're not on the
beach, but we will have a
trolley and free access to
the beach and other rest-
aurants," said Miller.
Money will be spent to
market the hotel to fami-
lies, encouraging them to
come here in the summer
- key to keeping it prof-
itable and filling the rest-
aurant and meeting
rooms.
The $8 million four-
story building along the
Intracoastal Waterway will
have retail spaces, includ-
ing a coffee-and-wine
shop, together with the
hotel registration and lob-
by on the first floor. The
250-seat restaurant on the
first floor will have 60 seats
outside; fitted deck cur-
tains will be dropped
when it's windy; heaters
will warm cooler evenings
and misters will run in
summer.
The third story has the
200-seat meeting room

and banquet rooms for
business meetings, wed-
dings and parties. On the
fourth floor are an addi-
tional 12 luxury hotel
suites overlooking the
water.
Across the road will be
four buildings each with
54 hotel units; the corners
will feature one-bedroom
suites with the rest being
typical rooms.
There will be a salon,
spa and fitness center on
the piazza deck adjacent
to the swimming pool.
Activities and weddings
will take place outside on
the piazza deck, which has
tables and chairs to hold
events in good weather.
The first-floor parking
garage will have three
access on the north and
south sides sides, with
additional parking under-
neath the bridge, totaling
229 spaces. A covered
walkway over the road is a
possibility.
Tra Ponti will provide
employment for 150 peo-
ple; all will need accom-
modations outside the
hotel.

tionally vague is without
merit."
Doubts
Villanti concurred in
the opinion, but expressed
concern about the ramifi-
cations of holding that any
public employee could be
prosecuted decades after
the commission of a
crime. That issue, though,
was outside the court's
jurisdiction.
"I believe that these con-
cerns must be addressed by
the Legislature rather than


this court," he wrote.
Judge Chris Altenbemd
wrote a dissenting opinion
in which he acknowledged
there was merit in the
majority's view.
"I would certainly have
no objection to a longer
statute of limitations ap-
plicable to all perpetrators
of this particular crime," he
wrote.
However, he found the
term "misconduct in office"
vague, rendering the statute
inapplicable.
'Absent a definition in


the criminal code," he wrote
in his dissent, "I would limit
this special statute of limita-
tions to persons who com-
mit crimes based upon mis-
conduct in a position that is
defined as an 'office' either
in the Florida Constitution
or in the Florida Statutes."
The majority's view, he
wrote, creates a disparity
that would subject "a pri-
vate school teacher who
steals a $500 piece of
equipment is subject to a
three-year statute of limi-
tations ... while a public


school teacher ... who
commits the same act is
subject to a statute of limi-
tations that may not expire
for 30 years.
"The teacher involved
in this case has a limita-
tions period in excess of 20
years for offenses that
would have been barred
after three years if he
worked for a church or pri-
vate school."
Another appeal?
Venice attorney, who
Robert Harrison repre-


sents one of LaMorte's vic-
tims, originally brought
the statue in question to
the state attorney's atten-
tion.
He said Friday that his
client "was happy to hear
he (LaMorte) will continue
to serve his sentence.
But Harrison also said
the DCAs opinion could
open the door to yet an-
other appeal.
LaMorte has the right to
ask that his appeal be
reconsidered by all 14 dis-
trict court judges in an "en


banc" proceeding.
Because one judge dis-
sented and another one
had some doubts about
this use of the statute, "I
would be very surprised if
they didn't seek that
relief," Harrison said.
LaMorte, 65, is current-
ly serving his time at the
Taylor Correctional Insti-
tution.
His scheduled release
date is Dec. 7, 2019.

district, which encompasses
Englewood, North Port and part
ofVenice.
Staub shrugged off any infer-
ence that any contributor with a
special interest would curry
favor with her.
"If someone thinks that (the
maximum allowable contribu-
tion of) $200 is going to tilt me
one way or another, they don't
know me," Staub said.
Gross, in con-
trast, has raised
only $8,575 for
her campaign
against $2,095 in
expenditures.
Her contributors,
aside from former
Venice Mayor
Fred Hammett
($150), consist of Gross
retirees and pri-
vate citizens, mainly in North Port.
She was philosophical about
the fact that she would have to
operate her campaign on fund-
ing less than one-tenth of her


opponent's.
"I realize that I'm going to be
behind the eight ball, because
I'm not going to be able to send
out a bunch of glossy mailers,"
Gross said, "But I plan to get out
to the people one person at a
time through local debates
and events."
'Grassroots'
Republican Jon Thaxton is the
incumbent for the District 5 seat
on the county commission,
which comprises a large part of
Venice and Sarasota. First elect-
ed to his seat in 2000 and re-
elected in 2004, Thaxton is
unopposed, however rivals have
until June 20 to run against him.
Through March 31, Thaxton
had raised $83,705 for his cam-
paign, versus $11,031 in expen-
ditures. In the first quarter of this
year, he raised $6,505 and spent
$5,184. Prominent contributors
include:
Bill Earl, attorney and mem-
ber of Citizens for Sensible


Growth in Sarasota County -
$200.
Michael Bennett, state sena-
tor- $200.
Henry Rodriguez, developer
- $200.
Michael Grant, state legisla-
tor- $200.
Nora Patterson, Sarasota
County Commissioner $200.
Kathy Kleinlein, chair, Sara-
sota County School Board -
$100.
Other contributors to Thax-
ton's campaign include develop-
ers, retirees, attorneys, fertilizer
manufacturers, property man-
agers, Realtors and medical ser-
vices companies. His largest
expenditures so far include direct-
marketing printing ($1,118), a
direct-marketing mailing ($3,449)
and an event in conjunction
with the Sarasota County Fair
($749).
"I think you'll see my contri-
butions are balanced," Thaxton
said. "The big names tend to
jump out at you, but (overall)


you'll see I have one of the low-
est, per average, contributions of
any candidate. I've gotten so
many of the $5, $10, $15 and $20
level contributions. That shows
a lot of grassroots support."
'Better place'
Republican Paul Mercier is
the incumbent for the District 1
seat on the county commission,
the northernmost district in the
county. Mercier was elected in
2000 and is opposed by Dem-
ocrat Jono Miller and John E.
Mullarkey, who has no party
affiliation and no activity in
his campaign account.
As of March 31, Mercier raised
$30,525 against expenditures of
$3,894. Among his contributors
are fellow county commissioner
Patterson ($200), Minnich ($200)
and myriad retirees, medical
service companies, property
managers, real estate develop-
ers, attorneys, land planners and
bankers. Mercier's largest single
expenditure so far was $2,250 for


a recent fundraiser.
"I'm proud of the contribu-
tors I have," Mercier said. 'And I
think they're not supporting me
to necessarily vote in their favor
on issues. They're supporting a
system to try and get what they
perceive is the best candidate up
there."
Miller has raised $16,808 to
oppose Mercier, spending
$2,226 so far. Among his contrib-
utors is noted Mote Marine sci-
entist Ernie Estevez ($200) along
with diverse retirees, teachers,
attorneys, writers, consultants
and business owners.
His largest expenditure to
date was an ad in the magazine
Natural Awakenings ($599), a
free publication geared to peo-
ple seeking a healthy, natural
lifestyle.
"The readership of Natural
Awakenings is a good match for
me and I realized none of the
other candidates were advertis-
ing in it," Miller said.

energy rebate promise
made to the consumers
currently on the waiting
list," said Bruce Kershner
of the Florida Solar Energy
Industries Association in a
press release.
Queued
Tom Harriman, of Har-
riman Solar Inc., serving
Sarasota, Venice and Port
Charlotte, says the pro-
gram is so popular he be-
lieves it will run out of
funds by June.
What happens then?
Kershner said Friday while
lobbying in Tallahassee he
believes the state will con-
tinue using the waiting list
already established. It's a
first-come, first-served
process.
"I have no reason to
think otherwise," Kershner
said.
"They will continue
with the queue. That
seems to be the exact plan.
Once the money is ex-
hausted, (qualified) cus-
tomers will be notified
they are on the list for next
year. That's how we are
moving forward."


Property taxes
A past president of the
association, Harriman
said the property tax pro-
vision in the bill, which
exempts the value of the
system from being added
to homes for property tax
purposes, is huge.
"That is an extremely
valued issue for home-
owners," Harriman said.
"Taxes won't go up be-
cause you placed a solar
system on your home."
His organization lob-
bied successfully for the
provision.
He explained the ratio-
nale like this: "You are
doing something good for
the environment by re-
ducing fossil fuel con-
sumption, so don't penal-
ize someone for doing
that."
Rebate program
According to the associ-
ation, customers who pur-
chase solar thermal swim-
ming pool heaters are eli-
gible for a $100 rebate per
system. Solar domestic
water heaters are eligible
for a $500 rebate per sys-


tem. Commercial solar
water heating systems are
eligible for a rebate of up
to $5,000.
PV systems of 2 kilo-
watts or larger can qualify
for a rebate based on the
manufacturer's power out-
put rating of the system.
The amount is $4 per watt,
with a residential cap of
$20,000 and a $100,000
cap for commercial, pub-
licly owned or private
nonprofit organizations.
Net metering
A second major incen-
tive enshrined in HB 7135
is a new net-metering rule,
making Florida the 41st
state to adopt such a rule.
It directs all utilities to
"develop a standardized
interconnection agree-
ment and net-metering
program for customer-
owned renewable genera-
tion" like solar energy sys-
tems.
Now, those who pur-
chase solar systems any-
where in the state can tie
into their local electric
utility grid system and sell
back excess electricity. At a


minimum, the rule en-
sures consumers have an
opportunity to substan-
tially lower their own elec-
tric utility bills.
Kershner said it's unlikely
customers will produce
more than they use, but "if
you produce more than you
use, you are putting it back
on the grid," and the utility
company will, in essence,
pay you back at the going
retail rate.
"I would doubt that
anybody would be in that
position, unless you have
a very large system and are
not using any electricity in
your home," Kershner
said.
The legislation comes
on the heels of a rule
adopted March 4 by the
Public Service Commis-
sion requiring net-meter-
ing of the state's privately
held investor-owned utili-
ties. HB 7135 essentially
applies the rule to all utili-
ties, including municipal
utilities and rural electric
cooperatives.
Like the rebate pro-
gram, rules implementing
the net-metering program


will be forthcoming. PSC
spokesman Todd Brown
said it's likely to mirror the
March 4 rule.
Growing
In an era of skyrocketing
oil and gas prices, the idea
of cutting one's electricity
bill in half or more, which
for many can be hundreds
of dollars each month, is
worth it. Solar sellers say the
system can pay for itself
within four years.
Like other solar sellers,
Scott Egglefield, president
of Mirasol FAFCO Solar
Inc. in Nokomis, has been
waiting for this moment.
He took over his father's
home insulation business
31 years ago, entering the
solar thermal business in
1978 when tax credits were
first offered as incentive
under the Carter adminis-
tration.
During the Reagan
years the tax credits went
away, until 2006 when
they re-emerged. Con-
gress is currently in dis-
cussion to renew the pro-
gram, which expires at the
end of 2008. Under the


current federal tax incen-
tive, consumers can de-
duct 30 percent of the sys-
tem's cost, or a maximum
of $2,000, from taxable
income.
The tax breaks and re-
bates, along with increas-
ing gas and oil prices, are
fueling the current market.
Egglefield has six PV con-
tracts he's been sitting on
while the Florida Legis-
lature debated renewing its
rebate program. Each of the
contracts contained a con-
tingency clause if the
state solar rebate program
isn't renewed, no sale.
Now, Egglefield says,
solar is going gangbusters.
Mirasol had a banner
year last year, doubling its
revenue. This year, Eggle-
field expects gross rev-
enues of $2 million to $3
million. PV systems ac-
counted for 30 percent of
the increase in company
revenue, although it ac-
counts for only 10 percent
of the projects.
"It's growing every day,"
Egglefield said.

Spring

football

notebook

Venice High School's
leading tackler and sack
leader Ethan Mix has been
working out with the full-
backs so far this spring.
As a linebacker in 2007,
Mix led the team with 46
tackles and six sacks. After
such a productive season
on defense, they would
like him to stay put. But
the Indians are also in
need of a fullback, where
Mix served for part of last
season.
Seniors Paul Costanzo
and Jimmy Laurie, who
shared the backfield last
year to combine for 1,328
rushing yards and 13
touchdowns, are gone. Dre
Archer has stepped up as
the heir apparent for the
tailback position, but Mix
is the only obvious re-
placement at fullback.
"He just has the experi-
ence, he knows the plays,
but we're hoping to not
have to use him at full-
back," said Venice Head
Coach John Peacock, who
worked with the running
backs on Friday. "We're
hoping we can get some-
body to step up. He's doing
a great job there, but it's
also nice to have him rest-
ed on defense."
Should someone else
step up to the task, the job
will be theirs. But for the
time being, Mix is the the
starting fullback.
"If there's someone who
can get the job done, he
won't be," Peacock said.
Two interceptions
for Evan Boone
Up from the junior var-
sity team a year ago, Evan
Boone is turning heads on
the spring practice field. At
defensive back in seven-
on-seven drills, Boone
came up with a pair of in-
terceptions from quarter-
back Trey Burton.
"Evan's one of those play-
ers that's always around the
ball," Venice Defensive Co-
ordinator Larry Shannon
said. "He always seems to
be making plays. When the
ball is in the air, he seems
to be coming down with it
or tipping the ball out of
receivers' hands."
Shannon indicated that
Boone would be in the mix
for a position as a defen-
sive back along with re-
turning DB Dre Archer and
new-addition Robert Ford-


ham. At safety, the Indians
are looking at Justin Grant
and David Miller.
"We might have to make
some movement person-
nel-wise, but right now
we think we've got the
guys out there that can do
it," Shannon said.
Baby steps for
receiving corps
The Indians' untested
group of receivers didn't
impress anybody after the
first day of spring, but Pea-
cock said that Friday was a
little better.
"You talk about [Thurs-
day] and I would say our
receivers grade was an 'F
and today it was probably
a 'D+'," he said.
Tight end Beckett Wales,
who played varsity toward
the end of last season,
caught a couple of big
passes from Burton. He
had a couple of touch-
down catches in seven-on-
seven drills and converted
on a fourth-and-long play
during the two-minute
drill.
Peacock noted that
Wales, Boone and new-
addition Josh Boyle have
shown consistency, but
that the rest of the receiv-
ing corps has been incon-
sistent at best.
"We got a little bit bet-
ter," Peacock said. "We did
catch the ball a little better
but it has to be automatic
every time."

gardening is
recognized as a low-level
exercise, gardeners no
longer need to argue that the
pain they endure from
gardening activities is similar
to the pain athletes experience.
Chiropractors know that the
aches, pains, strains, and sprains
associated with gardening can be
debilitating. They know the exertion
\ that bodies go through while tilling,
shoveling, pruning, planting, raking,
and doing all the other
things necessary to prepare and
maintain a garden place stresses on
the body equal to those from athletics
and exercise. Thus, chiropractors are
no less likely to treat green thumbs
for backpain than they are to treat
weight-lifters for the same
problem. Chiropractors treat all
musculoskeletal injuries, regard-
less of how their patients come by
them.

Get alerts

on sex

offenders
BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
STAFF WRITER

The Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement
just made it a little easier
for you to look out for your
children's safety.
You can now sign up to
receive e-mail alerts when-
ever a registered sex of-
fender or sexual predator
moves into your area.
Visit the Web site at
offender.fdle.state.fl.us
and click on the gold "Of-
fender Alert" button on the
top of the page. This takes
you to a site where you can
enter your e-mail address
and select a password.
When you are signed in,
you can the enter your
physical address or sev-
eral addresses, if you
choose; then select the
radius for reporting, up to
an area within 5 miles of
the chosen location.
FDLE will then send
you an e-mail alert when-
ever a change is made to
the listing for anyone with-
in that area.
Kristen Peruzkha, a
spokeswoman for FDLE,
said the new feature should
help parents better assess
the risks in their neighbor-
hoods.
"You might want to keep
track of registered offenders
near your school, day care
or business." she said.
Peruzkha said register-
ed sex offenders are re-
quired to notify the state
within 48 hours whenever
they change their address.
"That information gets
posted on FDLE's Web site
whenever the registered
sex offender notifies us of a
change," she said.
Peruzkha said that
within one day of this new
feature becoming avail-
able, "more than 6,600
people had signed up for
the service."
You can also search the
FDLE registered sex offen-
ders database online. Click
the red "Offender Search"
button and choose the
"Neighborhood Search"
link. On the next screen,
enter your address and city
or ZIP code. You can dis-
play the results in either a
list or a map format.

BY AUDREY
BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

Learning there are
nearly 700 homeless stu-
dents in Sarasota County
raises questions: "How do
they get to school?" and
"Where do they sleep at
night?" are just two.
The answers for most of
these students come cour-
tesy of a well-choreogra-
phed network known as
Schoolhouse Link that
connects them to food,
shelter and school. It's a
program of the Sarasota
Family YMCA that oper-
ates to help all students
who are in transition in the
greater Venice area to
enroll, attend and succeed
in school.
DeWayne's story
DeWayne (not his real
name) has lived a life of
constant change starting
with the time he left home
for the military as a teen.
After the service, he work-
ed minimum-wage jobs
and stayed at the Salvation
Army and with friends and
family over the years.
Two years ago, when he
got permanent custody of
his son, who is now 13,
DeWayne realized the im-
portance of providing a
stable home for the pair.
He got full custody of the
boy because life with the
boy's mother was a "tough
situation," DeWayne said.
Originally from Okla-
homa, the 43-year-old fat-
her and his son have lived
in the Venice area for the


past two years. DeWayne
worked in a general auto-
motive store in the North
Port-Englewood area, but
he recently lost his job and
was evicted from his
apartment. Out of concern
for his son's education and
living needs, he contacted
the YMCA's Schoolhouse
Link and the program
came to the rescue.
Ellen McLaughlin, pro-
gram director of School-
house Link in Sarasota,
put DeWayne in touch
with Mercy House Resi-
dences, operated by Epip-
hany Cathedral in Venice
under the guidance of
Brother Peter Nault. This is
the only transitional living
home in South County.
McLaughlin and David
Lojacono, who manages
Mercy House, helped De-
Wayne get back on his feet.
Within three months, he
found a job at an automo-
tive store in Venice and a
mobile home to rent in
Nokomis. His son was able
to stay at the school he
had attended in North
Port in order to maintain
school stability, said Mc-
Laughlin, with the school
district providing trans-
portation to and from
school daily. The boy qual-
ifies for the free breakfast
and lunch program at
school.
"Ellen is very good at
arranging the school situa-
tion transportation,
backpacks all the things
they need. And he
(DeWayne) did all the
things she told him to do,"
Lojacono said.


Following the steps is
vital to the program's suc-
cess, according to Lojacono.
"If they follow her lead,
things will fall into place,"
he said.
He said he is proud of
what DeWayne did.
"They have a beautiful
piece of property, better
than in an apartment," he
said. "It's a place where
friends can come."
DeWayne and his son
are excited about their
move and motivated to be
on their own, Lojacono
said.
Homelessness
Even though the term
homelessness sums up the
situation for many of the
people McLaughlin helps
through Schoolhouse Link,
she said the preferred term
is having a "temporary
housing need." This is
because most people are
not homeless forever and
"homeless" has other nega-
tive connotations.
While the statistics
show a large number of
families in transition here
- 671 enrolled in Sarasota
County with about 42
identified in the greater
Venice area still more
have left the area. Mc-
Laughlin said it is because
of the declining econom-
ics in the area and people
seeking work out of state.
"Parents lose their hou-
sing and then lose their
job and can't find work,"
she said. "With no hous-
ing, it's hard for them to
find a job, because many
employers won't hire


someone if they think a
person is not stable in the
area. It's a Catch-22."
The average age of a
homeless person is 9, ac-
cording to McLaughlin, not
what most people think.
"We usually see only
the tip of the iceberg, the
small visible part of a
much bigger problem that
remains hidden. The reali-
ty of homelessness today
is most are very young,"
she said.
Unaccompanied
Some kids live in the
area without their parents.
If they are 17 or 18 years
old and in school, they are
referred to as "unaccom-
panied youth."
A high school teacher
works with one girl who is
unaccompanied to keep
her in school and helps
her get the things she
needs, such as clothing,
food and work. The teach-
er is more of a family to her
than her own family, ac-
cording to McLaughlin.
"It's people like that
teacher who make a differ-
ence to a student," Mc-
Laughlin said.
Some of the older kids
are called "couch surfers."
They stay on a friend's
couch for a while, then may
have to move on to another
friend's couch and so forth.
Some of them live at the
Transitional Living Center
in Sarasota.
"Sometimes it is the
best situation for them, to
be unaccompanied and
attending school. They
have a right to education,"


McLaughlin said.
Mercy House
Epiphany Cathedral
opened Mercy House in
1995 as a result of grants
from The Venice Found-
ation (now Gulf Coast
Community Foundation
of Venice), Our Lady of
Lourdes and the Epiphany
Foundation.
According to Nault, a
four-unit motel was
bought for the purpose of
putting up families who
needed temporary hous-
ing. It is nondenomina-
tional and does not make
any religious require-
ments of tenants.
However, they will
probably be introduced to
God through a painted
picture icon of Jesus that
hangs on the wall in Loj-
acono's office.
"When people come to
Mercy House, we ask them
to trust God to help them
through their suffering,"
Lojacono said, adding that
the painting represents
the devotion to Jesus as an
attribute of his Divine Mer-
cy. This agrees with the the-
me of Mercy House, he said.
"There was no place in
Venice for anyone to go,"
Nault said, explaining how
Mercy House began. "Peo-
ple had to go to the Sal-
vation Army Lodge in
Sarasota, which was not a
good environment for fam-
ilies because they separate
the children and adults."
Mercy House serves
about 100 people a year,
Nault said. While there is no
set time frame for staying


there, most people stay a
maximum of 90 days, just
enough time to save for
their first and last months'
rent and security deposit.
"We have food and a
small service kitchen be-
cause we want them to fo-
cus on saving their money
and getting their own
place," Nault said.
No drugs or alcohol are
allowed on the premises; if
any is discovered, the per-
son is booted out.
"We have no three
strikes," Lojacono said.
Greatest need
There is a need for more
shelters, for both emer-
gency and affordable hou-
sing, according to Mc-
Laughlin and Nault.
"The community has to
embrace that need," said
McLaughlin. "There are
many homeless families
between Venice and North
Port, and many are invisi-
ble. Some want to remain
hidden; it's a personal
issue."
McLaughlin said the
county has tried to build
momentum for a South
County shelter, but no one
has stepped forward ex-
cept Our Mother's House,
which is only for single
moms with one or two
children under 5 while
mom goes to school.
"People need to realize
the reality there are kids
in classrooms who are
homeless, and many are
unaccompanied youth,"
McLaughlin said.

Nancy Juillet searches for a storage container. Everything is
supplied for the temporary residents at Mercy House, the only
homeless shelter in South Sarasota County.


An icon of Jesus Christ hangs on the wall of the office at
Mercy House. The inscription reads: Jesus, I trust in you (writ-
ten in Polish: Jezu UfamTobie), and represents his Divine
Mercy, the namesake of Mercy House.


Taking a breather after her 1-1/2 mile walk home from her job,
Nancy Juillet enjoys orange juice at the Mercy House. She
lost the restaurant job she held for 14 years in Port Charlotte
after her car died and she couldn't get to work on time, she
said. She relocated to Venice, where she lived once before,
and got help through the homeless program at Epiphany
Cathedral.

May is Hepatitis Awareness Month


FROM SARASOTA
COUNTY HEALTH AND
HUMAN SERVICES
FLORIDA DEPARTMENT
OF HEALTH

The Sarasota County
Health Department will
join in the 13th annual
National Hepatitis Aware-
ness Month observance
during May. This obser-
vance is intended to raise
awareness about impor-
tance of having a healthy
liver for a healthier life,
while encouraging people
who are at risk for hepati-
tis to get tested, and to get
vaccinated against hepati-


tis A and hepatitis B.
The liver performs vital
functions in cleansing and
purifying the blood and in
breaking down and pro-
ducing certain chemical
substances that are essen-
tial for a healthy life. Public
health officials say that
many illnesses and condi-
tions can cause liver in-
flammation or Hepatitis
infection. This includes
viral and bacterial infec-
tions, alcohol, chemicals
and autoimmune diseases
such as lupus, multiple
sclerosis and rheumatoid
arthritis. Hepatitis A is
spread by eating contami-


nated food or drinking
water while Hepatitis B is
contracted through contact
with blood or body fluids of
an infected person.
Although Hepatitis A
and Hepatitis B are pre-
ventable through vaccina-
tion, Hepatitis A is one of
the most frequently re-
ported vaccine-prevent-
able diseases in the United
States. There is no vaccine
to prevent hepatitis C vir-
us (HCV), which is found
in blood and can be
spread by sharing injec-
tion drug equipment,
blood transfusions or
organ transplants before


1992, occupational expo-
sure through needle sticks,
and in rare instances, sex-
ual contact.
Symptoms when they
do occur may include
jaundice, dark urine, light
stool, abdominal pain and
anorexia.
"Since the majority of
people do not develop
symptoms, Hepatitis C
may go undetected for two
or three decades and
result in liver cirrhosis or
liver failure later in life.
Those who become infect-
ed with Hepatitis B or C
are often at risk for other
diseases such as HIV sexu-


ally transmitted diseases
(STDs) and Tuberculosis.
Therefore, residents are
urged to take charge of
their health, ask questions
about available testing
programs and vaccina-
tions, and work with their
healthcare provider to
lead a healthy lifestyle,"
said Dr. Kieran Smart,
medical director for the
Sarasota County Health
Department.
Those who are infected
with HCV are encouraged
to get the hepatitis A and B
vaccine, which will help to
keep the liver healthy.
Avoiding alcohol, medica-


tions containing aceta-
minophen and uncooked
shellfish are other ways
those with HCV can stay
healthy.
The Sarasota County
Health Department works
with the Florida Depart-
ment of Health to raise
public awareness about
viral hepatitis, provides
education, monitors dis-
ease trends and detects
outbreaks, and offers test-
ing and vaccination at no
cost for adults at increased
risk for infection.

sotahealth.org.

two of you have been wait-
ing patiently for another of
my headline columns, so
here goes:
Legless lizard found in
Brazil may be new species.
(It's not that new it's
called a snake.)
Swiss discoverer of
LSD dies, aged 102. (And
he thought he'd been on
some strange trips before.)
Jackson talks gay ru-
mors, drag queens. (Sur-
prise: It wasn't Michael.)
Bush: Economy not in
recession, in slowdown.
(And my goldfish isn't
dead, he's just napping up-
side down.)
Bush releases $221,635
tax return. (Then again, he
seems to have done all
right last year.)
Answers due on World


War II mystery. (That's
what happens when you
put them in the mail.)
Coroner jury: Diana
unlawfully killed. (Really? I
thought those photogra-
phers were acting in self-
defense.)
Soviet space shuttle
chugs up the Rhine. (Ob-
viously the Russian space
program isn't what it used
to be.)
Guy serves as Madon-
na's inspiration. (That ex-
plains all the crotch grab-
bing.)
Robots seen doing
work of 3.5 million people
in Japan. (Inventing new
Pokemon characters?)
Swedish spruce may
be world's oldest living
tree. (Unfortunately, a rap-
per is negotiating to buy it
and turn it into the world's
oldest toothpicks.)
Castro inspires with
ukulele, "Rainbow." (Sounds
like he's using his retire-


ment to continue to spread
joy among the Cuban peo-
ple.)
Congress votes to ban
genetic discrimination.
(Does this mean that we
beautiful people will have
to treat the rest of human-
ity as if they're our equals?)
"Extinct" plants found
in remote Australia. (Of
course, Nigel and Bruce
had been into the Fosters
for a few hours, so they
might just be some grass.)
Marilyn Monroe sex
tape sells for $1.5M. (Too
bad she's dead; this would
be a fantastic career move.)
Jimi Hendrix returns
as a sex tape star? (You
don't suppose ... ? Nah,
couldn't be.)
Treasure chest of Elvis
photos discovered. (I heard
there's one of him, Marilyn
Monroe and Jimi Hen-
drix.)

ter, Emily, and I completed the three-generation crew.
We were delighted to find almost all of the osprey
nests along the way occupied, some with recently
hatched chicks. The osprey, our local fish hawk, is
often mistaken for a bald eagle because both species
are large and have white heads, plus a well-known

fondness for fish. An easy way to tell one species from
the other is that osprey carry their captured fish with
the head facing forward, while eagles carry their prey
cross-wise.
Ospreys hover over the water searching, then dive
steeply into the water when they spot a potential meal.
They resurface quickly, then fly off with their catch.
Like eagles, osprey populations were drastically
reduced by the heavy use of pesticides during the
1950s and '60s. Again, like eagles, their numbers have
made a good recovery since federal regulations cur-
tailed the use of those pesticides. I just love wildlife
preservation success stories!
Along our way from Roberts Bay past Bird Island and
Rattlesnake Island Park, running along Casey Key, we
encountered a dolphin and a manatee. Several areas
are marked "manatee zone, slow speed" through there.


A great blue heron chooses to stand and wait for a potential
meal to swim by. It stays still for long periods of time.

What a thrill to see both these marvelous aquatic
mammals as we slowly cruised northward!
We stopped for a little picnic on the beach, and
encountered a great blue heron looking for some
lunch in the shallow waters in the shade of some man-
groves as Mark headed our boat toward the shore. Our

Business meeting will

NewYorker son pointed out he didn't generally see
birds like that when he went fishing at home, though
Dirk admitted these tall, regal birds can be found in his
home state in the summer.
Despite their name, great blue herons are mostly
gray, though their blue feathers really do draw one's
attention. They often just stand and wait and watch,
until a fish or frog comes within striking distance.
Great blues will also occasionally feed on small mam-
mals, reptiles or birds.
We could add many additional birds to these sight-
ings on our day's excursion notably brown pelicans,
double-crested cormorants, American coots and oth-
ers. Delightfully, our area still offers us the opportunity
to encounter wildlife on just about any outing we
might choose to take along our coastline, as our little
family group did, and inland, too.


Signs for boaters are favorite nesting places for osprey. The
birds return to the same nests year after year.

Have you seen Smokey?


BY BARBARA ZIGRAS

My cockatiel Smokey
got out through the garage
April 2.
I called two humane
societies and each had a
cockatiel that I went to see.
My husband and I put up
posters and I placed ads.
I received four phone
calls. I've looked at five
birds so far and none were
my Smokey. One person
found a bird who did the
Adam's Family jingle and a
military song so I knew he
wasn't Smokey. It is hard to
anticipate you will finally
be reunited with your bird,
only to walk in and imme-
diately realize no way is it
him.
My Smokey's vocabu-
lary includes Pretty Boy
Smokey, Daddy, Do You
Want to Sing and I Love
You. He also does an im-
pressive wolf whistle.
I hand-fed him as a
baby, and I've had him 15

Quite a crowd turned out to see all the makes and models of classic cars and trucks
at Tervis Tumbler on U.S. 41.


Support comes in many forms

Melissa and Dane Fieber with their 2-year-old daughter,
Sydney, at the Tervis Tumbler Open Benefit Car and Truck
Show held to raise money to help with Sydney's medical
expenses.


Tervis Tumbler held its
annual specialty car and
truck show last month.
Proceeds from past
fundraisers went to Habitat
House and to Operation
Uplink, a program that pro-
vides military personnel
and hospitalized veterans
with a free VFW Operation
Uplink phone card.
This year's proceeds
went to help Sydney
Fieber, daughter of Tervis
employee, Dane Fieber


and his wife Melissa. At her
one-year check-up, Sydney
was diagnosed with can-
cerous tumors on her left
and right kidneys. Sydney's
last chemotherapy was in
January and she will get the
results this month to deter-
mine whether she is in
remission.
"We are honored that
we have the resources to
hold an event that will
benefit one of the mem-
bers of our Tervis family
during this trying time. We
hope our efforts will give
the family some breathing
room so they can focus
solely on Sydney's treat-
ment and recovery," said
Laura Spencer, CEO.
This year's show fea-
tured 170 cars and trucks.
The event included tro-
phies for participants in
categories including a spe-
cial "Sydney's Choice"
award. Door prizes, raffle
and silent auction items


were donated from too
many community busi-
nesses to list. Donations
for Sydney can be made by
calling 966-6887.
Support group
The annual Venice
Amputee Support Group
picnic was held at Oscar
Scherer State Park recent-
ly. This group was formed
11 years ago by Al
Wedlake, who died in 2006
at age 93. "He loved help-
ing people," said Barbara
Kemet, the support
group's historian.
Kathleen Gibson's father
was a double amputee who
has since passed away, but
she attends the picnics to
visit old friends.
John Roche, park man-
ager at Oscar Scherer State
Park, also is an amputee.
In 2001 he contracted a
very rare, flesh-eating dis-
ease necrotizing fasci-
itis. Roche said out of the


20 individuals who con-
tracted the disease at that
time, only 10 survived.
Roche said with every-
thing he had to overcome,
including other major
health issues that were
diagnosed at the time, he
feels fortunate to be alive
today. His recovery also is
fortunate for the park. His
leadership, warmth and
enthusiasm contribute to
the park's success.
Because of privacy
laws, the support group is
unable to contact recent
amputees, and would like
to get the word out that
they are there to assist in
any way possible. The
roundtable support ses-
sion meets 9:30 a.m.-
noon, Fridays at the Lions
Club Room at Venice
Health Park on Jacaranda
Boulevard. Registration
isn't necessary. For infor-
mation, call Jack Huwel,
president, at 493-1658.


For the Tervis Tumbler Open Benefit Car and
Truck Show, Jin Ling Lias, of Best
Manufacturing, displayed a sculpture made
out of recycled car and motorcycle parts
created by an Asian artist.


Participating at the third annual Tervis
Tumbler Open Benefit Car and Truck
Show is Joan Rotar, a certified clown
since 1980, and Goldie.
