Voters endorse slow growth, bond issues


Voters in Sarasota County endorsed two measures on Tuesday's ballot; one for a
unanimous vote by the county commission to expand the area in the county
where more intensive zoning would be permitted, and one which approved bond-
ing up to $300 million for projects earmarked for financing with future sales tax
dollars.

STAFF WRITER


Voters overwhelmingly approv-
ed two proposed measures on


Tuesday's ballot.
The first item was an amend-
ment requiring unanimity from
the county commission to ex-
pand the area in the county


On to Plant City


where more intensive zoning
would be permitted.
With all 157 precincts report-
ing and 38,555 votes cast, coun-
ty residents endorsed the initia-


tive, 30,554 votes to 8,001. That's
79.25 percent in favor to 20.75
percent opposed.
Bill Zoller, president of Citi-
zens for Sensible Growth in
Sarasota County and a key play-
er in crafting the amendment,
was "pleased" with the vote.
"This completes a long, three-
year process," Zoller said. "We
now have put into place new
procedures for decision-mak-
ing, new controls and realities


on how citizens in Sarasota
County want development to
proceed in the future."
Zoller added the next focus
"of necessity and desire" will be
on the urban, in-fill and redevel-
opment efforts.
"We hope there will be a new
acceptance on the part of the
development community that
this is where they need to turn

Osprey hotel plan hits a bump


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

The tide is still out regarding a
waterfront hotel in Osprey.
By a narrow margin, the
Osprey Revitalization Commit-
tee earlier this week endorsed
Dr. Anil Patel's development of a
5.5-acre parcel on the commu-
nity's waterfront, even though
he did not present a site plan.
But the committee chose not
to accept a county zoning code
definition that would have
allowed a hotel on the property.
A proposed increase in densi-
ty by a second developer to allow
32 condominiums and eight


cottages on 4.9 acres on Bayview
Lane was approved, provided
that public access to a 100-foot-
long stretch of land at water's
edge was guaranteed.
Earlier plans to rezone the
Patel parcel to permit condo-
miniums, townhouses and a
commercial building had been
rejected twice by the committee
and once by the county plan-
ning commission. The proposal
of a hotel evolved from a rezon-
ing based on a special exception
to the Nokomis commercial cor-
ridor revitalization plan. It had
been granted by the county.
Two hotels with retail com-
plexes proposed to be built on


the northwest and southwest
sides of Albee Road at U.S. 41 in
Nokomis were granted the spe-
cial exception to assure their
economic viability. It would
have permitted the doubling of
the number of units per acre
from 13 to 26.
Hotel rooms without kitchens
are defined in the county zoning
code as half the size of rooms in
a home. But the code stipulated
that the presence of a micro-
wave oven in a hotel room creat-
ed a kitchen.
The exception had been
sought to encourage hotel oper-

regional transportation boai

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is part one
of a two-part series about River
Road. The second part will run
Friday.
BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

In years past, regional metro-
politan planning organizations
were given a larger piece of fed-
eral and state transportation
funds to improve local roads.
But, two years ago, the formula
changed.
The amounts given to state
transportation departments for
interstate, port and airport
improvements increased, while
the funds given to MPOs, for
major regional road improve-
ments, went down.
"Our state money was cut in
half and that's where the root of
our problem started," Saraso-
ta/Manatee Metropolitan Plan-
ning Organization Principal
Planner Keith Drake said.
Right now each county gets
about $6.5 million per year for
MPO priorities.
"There's a high level of frus-
tration on our board," MPO
Executive Director Michael P.
Howe said. "It's been building -
the fact that we've had some
reductions in our share; the fact
that we had some incredible
cost escalation in our projects."
The cost of projects has dou-
bled, and in some cases tripled,
during the past 10 years, Drake
said. For example, the widening
of the Venice Bypass originally
was projected to cost $28 mil-
lion. It has an $80 million-$100


million price tag now.
More than 40,000 cars travel
the bypass every day. Officials
had planned to widen the road
to six lanes and maintain its sta-
tus as an artery that directs U.S.
41 traffic away from the island
and moves it rapidly between
the interstate (or Nokomis) and
SouthVenice.
That priority is being re-eval-

submitted a draft plan. It calls
for redesigning the bypass to
slow traffic as it travels past what
would be a redeveloped indus-

yard.

Manasota Key residents question beach project


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


Residents on Manasota Key
gathered at the home of Sally
Byors to refute what they believe
is an attempt by Sarasota Coun-
ty to unfairly charge them each
as much as $31,500 for a beach
renourishment project they
don't need.
Byors, who lives in the 6800
block of Manasota Key Road, be-
lieves the project is unnecessary.
"I walked the beach for five
hours the last couple of days,"
Byors said. "And there's only two
houses in imminent danger.
This beach is in the best shape
it's been in for the last 20 years."
Sarasota County Coastal Re-
sources Manager Laird Wreford,


however, contends the project is
still under evaluation and no
final decisions have come down
on it. Wreford said the $31,500
figure is inaccurate.
"There were numbers similar
to that coming originally from a
staff report to the board, at-
tempting to illustrate different,
potential levels of funding (for
this kind of project)," Wreford
said. "It was not in any way sug-
gesting that there was any kind
of established assessment that
was going to happen."
A beach renourishment pro-
ject has been discussed since
2002 for two afflicted beaches on
the Key. One beach, currently
estimated at $15.9 million to re-
nourish, extends about 1.8 miles
from the Charlotte County line


north to Middle Beach. The sec-
ond, now estimated at $9.1 mil-
lion, runs approximately 1.5
miles from the Pearl Beach Mo-
tel north to Manasota Beach.
Neither beach encompasses By-
ors's property.
Erosion in the northern area
is not currently designated "crit-
ical," but the long-range view in
a county study suggests a
change to that designation. If
that is accomplished, consider-
able state funding for a renour-
ishment project could open up.
Disagreement

Shannon Staub enumerated

Sally Byors believes the beach by her home on Manasota Key is in no dan-
ger of erosion and therefore requires no Sarasota County-mandated
renourishment, which she believes would cost her around $31,500.

Should I recycle? Of course


BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER

Industries have the
potential to save large
amounts of energy by
using scrap as opposed
to harvesting and pro-
cessing virgin raw mate-
rials.
Savings also come
in the manufacturing


process. One example is
that when waste glass is
used to make bottles, fur-
naces can be run at lower
temperatures. For alu-
minum, recycling can cut
energy consumption by
95 percent; plastics by 70
percent; steel, 60 percent;
and paper, 40 percent.
Unfortunately, the
United States does not


take recycling as serious-
ly as it should. A study
published by National
Geographic shows our
recycling of glass and
paper lags far behind
European countries. The
United States leads in
total tonnage recycled,
but falls behind in the
percentage recycled.
According to European


Union officials, countries
such as Denmark and
Sweden recycle nearly all
of their own consumption
of material, and import
waste to be recycled from
other countries.
The answer to whether
it makes sense to recycle
is: Yes.
The planet it's
worth saving.

No charges filed against driver in January five-car crash


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Although an 18-year-
old Nokomis driver was
found at fault, no tickets or
charges will be filed
against Justin Robert
Bennett of Nokomis for
the five-car crash that took
place earlier this year.
According to a police
report, Bennett was "dis-
oriented and upset" at the
scene after striking the
vehicles, but he denied
taking any medications,
alcohol or narcotics.
A police report indicated
a urine test was ordered,
but it was never conducted.
Capt. Tom McNulty
called it a paperwork error.
Urine testing for drugs
and alcohol can only be
requested post-arrest,
McNulty said. Blood draws
can be done prior to an
arrest, but they're typically
ordered only in circum-
stances where life-threat-
ening injuries are sus-
tained, he said.
Following the facts
In this instance, five


people were sent to the
hospital, but none of the
injuries was deemed seri-
ous.
An elderly Nokomis
couple took the brunt of
the impact. They were
extricated from their vehi-
cle by the fire depart-
ment's "jaws of life" and
rushed to Venice Regional
Medical Center. He
received minor injuries
from the impact. She suf-
fered cracked ribs. They
spent the night in the hos-
pital and were released the
next day.
"There was not a blood
draw (from the driver who
caused the accident)
because by the time we got
to the hospital to do a
blood draw, the hospital
already said it was not life-
threatening," McNulty
said.
Bennett was treated for
an abrasion on his head
and a cut on his right leg,
and released.
Police didn't issue
Bennett a citation,
although his vehicle was
shown to be at fault.
"He claims he passed


out. We have to follow the
facts. We have no evi-
dence to believe he was
under the influence. It
could have been a med-
ical condition," McNulty
said.
The error in calling for a
urine test was the topic of
follow-up police training
for new officers, according
to McNulty.
"I did the training per-
sonally," he said. "When
we do it wrong, we address
it."
Bennett was driving a
green SUV southbound
U.S. 41 Business near
Avenida del Circo on Jan.
22 when he passed out.
The vehicle made an
abrupt turn into oncom-
ing traffic, hitting four
cars and leaving a trail of
debris more than 150
yards long.
Bennett told police offi-
cers he thought he blacked
out, since he couldn't
remember hitting the
vehicles only waking up
after the wreck.

Early voting a success in Sarasota County


STAFF REPORT

Sarasota County Supervisor of
Elections Kathy Dent was pleased with
the results of early voting on two ballot
initiatives.
"We've had a good turnout so far,"
Dent said Monday before the general
election. "The total for early voting was
6,227, and 5,824 absentee ballots have
already been returned."


That comes to about 5 percent of the
246,626 registered voters in the county.
Early voting took place from April 21
through Sunday.
Dent was also encouraged by how well
the turnout was spread across the three
early voting poll stations throughout the
county in Sarasota, Venice and North
Port. In Sarasota, 2,429 voters cast their
ballots, while 2,924 turned out in Venice
and 874 in North Port.

Fire medics regroup after freeing a couple from this wrecked vehicle. It was one of four vehi-
cles struck by an SUV on U.S. 41 Business on Jan. 22, sending five people to Venice Regional
Medical Hospital. The driver wasn't cited.


CLARIFICATION

Even though the state
withdrew funding for
future design and con-
struction of T-hangars at
Venice Municipal Airport,
it did confirm leaving
$113,437 in fiscal year
2007-08 to complete the
construction of T-hangars
already in the design stage.


A story in the May 2
Gondolier Sun omitted the
information.
Responding to the arti-
cle, Mayor Ed Martin said
city council "does intend
to develop a business park
at the airport, as its mem-
bers have discussed, while
developing a strategic plan


and city comprehensive
plan consistent with an
amendment to this item
on the joint participation
agreement with Florida
Department of Trans-
portation to emphasize
demolition of the Circus
Arena property and its
redevelopment."

WAL-MART OSPREY
Members of the Chamber's Education & Business Development Committee agreed
unanimously in selecting the Business of the Month winner 100% approval with the
consumer letter which provided the testimonial and secondly, special recognition for
the generosity provided to the community since opening 3 years ago.

A Chamber member praised Wal-Mart in Osprey in the following testimonial "A Wal-
Mart advertisement had just the ideal laptop computer on sale beginning on a Monday
morning at 8:00. Unfortunately due to work constraints I was unable take advantage of
the sale. I asked Dan Houston, Wal-Mart Manager if he had any in stock. He hada few
but people were waiting in line to purchase them. Being resourceful Dan called the
Venice Wal-Mart store with a larger allotment and I was able to purchase the laptop
during my noon lunch hour Dan checked back with me to see if I received the laptop
and make sure I didn't have any problems. Now that's service and consideration be-
yond the call of duty!"

Wal-Mart of Osprey has been a goodwill ambassador in the greater Venice area since
their origin in 2005. Through their community service grant program they have sup-
ported our youth activities at Venice High, PineBrook, Epiphany, Laurel and Garden
schools, Venice Little League and many community non-profit organizations:American
Cancer Society, United Way of South Sarasota County, and Senior Friendship Center
just to name a few.

The Wal-Mart Store of Osprey is located at 13140 Tamiami Trail S.

King to have PET

scan in St. Pete


BY SUSAN E. HOFFMAN
STAFF WRITER

Circuit Judge Deno
Economou granted a mo-
tion Friday by attorneys
for Michael King to have
him examined by a PET
scan.
King, 36, is charged
with the kidnapping, rape
and murder of 21-year-old
Denise Amber Lee of
North Port
on Jan. 17.
King's
attorney,
Carolyn
Schlemmer
of the Pub-
lic Defend-
er's Office,
had asked
King for King to
be trans-
ported to National PET
Scan-Pinellas in St. Peters-
burg, saying he suffered a
head injury. A PET, or
positron emission tomog-
raphy, scan is a nuclear
imaging technique that
creates a three-dimen-
sional image. It's often
used in cancer diagnostics
as well as to view function
of the brain or heart.
Although the state did
not oppose the defense
motion, the judge asked
whether there were any
facilities closer than St.
Petersburg that could per-
form the scan.
Schlemmer said her
office uses the services of a
doctor in California, and
this is the facility that doc-
tor uses. She listed several
other felony cases for which
her office has used this doc-
tor. She also said the St.
Petersburg office was the
closest place that could
perform the type of testing
recommended for King.
No date has been set for
the procedure, but the


Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office will transport him,
make sure he is secure
during the procedure and
return him to the jail.
Circumstances
The defense had also
asked the state to provide
a list of the aggravating cir-
cumstances on which it
plans to rely in seeking the
death penalty, if King is
convicted at trial.
Under Florida statutes,
the state may seek the
death penalty against a
defendant convicted of a
capital felony if one or
more aggravating factors
are proven. Aggravating
circumstances may in-
clude a homicide commit-
ted in a cold, calculated
and premeditated manner
without any pretense of
moral or legal justification,
or a murder committed
during the commission of
certain other violent fel-
onies.
Attorney Lon Arend of
the State Attorney's Office
did not object, and the
judge ordered the state to
provide the information
within 60 days.
King is alleged by the
state to have kidnapped
Lee from her home the
afternoon of Jan. 17. About
6 p.m., according to police
reports, King stopped at
his cousin's house and
asked for a gas can, a shov-
el and a flashlight. King's
cousin, Harold Muxlow of
North Port, gave him the
requested items, accord-
ing to police reports.
Muxlow later reported
to police he heard a wom-
an in King's car scream
"call the police," and that
he saw King crawl over the
woman to get into his car.

POLICE BEAT


Fires reported
Over the weekend of
April 24, there were several
acts of arson committed in
the northwest corner of
the Lemon Bay Preserve.
These fires were sup-
pressed before they posed
a threat to any neighbors'
property or created cata-
strophic damage to the
preserve.
Acts of vandalism on
this property in the last
few months include felling
pine trees, damage to the
trail markers and, most
recently, arson.
Anyone noticing suspi-
cious behavior should no-
tify the sheriff's office, 316-
1201. Call 9-1-1 if you see
evidence of arson.

Lower flags,
honor police
As a tribute to the thou-
sands of law enforcement
officers who have made
the ultimate sacrifice, the
federal government creat-
ed the Peace Officers
Memorial Day in 1994 and
called for all American
flags to be flown at half
staff on that day, May 15.
More than 180 officers
died in the line of duty in
2007, an increase of 20
percent over the prior year.
In addition, almost 60,000
officers are assaulted every
year with close to 20,000
sustaining injuries.

OUR VIEW



River Road project may hit a detour


I f the recent summit of officials in
the region showed nothing else, it's
that the much-anticipated up-
grade of River Road still may be a long
way off, and getting it built will be an
expensive, bumpy ride with lots of stop-
and-go traffic.
The meeting of Sarasota, Charlotte
and North Port commissioners was an
opportunity to openly review the possi-
bility of River Road improvements,
especially in light of the Thomas Ranch
development. Afterward, prospects ap-
peared dimmer than they did before,
because the meeting exposed hidden
strings, complexities and some wishful
thinking that had previously inflated
hopes.
Propelling the issue is the Thomas
Ranch-West Villages Improvement Dis-
trict.
The ranch could see as many as
22,300 housing units and 3.2 million


square feet of commercial space if it is
built out as developers hope in the next
25 years.
While the impacts will be broad, the
immediate focus of the meeting was
River Road. Estimates are that rebuild-
ing the road from Pine Street in Eng-
lewood to Interstate 75 would cost well
more than $145 million.
It had been suggested months ago
that Charlotte County might chip in, as
it had a decade ago when Sarasota
County widened Winchester Boulevard
in Englewood. But while River Road is a
critical evacuation route for the Cape
Haze peninsula, cash-strapped Char-
lotte County is in no position to repeat
its largess now, Commissioner Adam
Cummings noted.
The developer also reiterated a pledge
to front $90 million to begin re-
construction of River Road from U.S. 41 to
1-75, although he made it explicit that this


money was contingent on Sarasota
County commissioners approving a com-
prehensive plan change in two weeks for
the Gottfried project. Some Sarasota
County commissioners were surprised to
learn that was a direct quid pro quo.
And the loan would be repaid, pre-
sumably with some sort of road impact
fee credits. Looking at the developer's
figures, it would take all the county's
fees just to pay off construction of the
one section of River Road.
In all, roughly $204 million is expect-
ed from West Villages in transportation
impact fees. North Port controls the
overwhelming bulk of it: $115 million
would go to the city, which has road
needs that extend far beyond River
Road.
Some $53 million would come to
Sarasota County from the Gottfried de-
velopment, and another $36 million
would be collected by North Port for the


county's use. According to a previous
agreement, North Port controls where
that money is used, but city officials
indicated at the meeting they would
support allocating it for River Road.
So Sarasota County presumably
would have $89 million coming in. That
offsets the up-front loan.
A larger immediate issue will be the
likelihood of the developer getting four
of five votes needed for the comp plan
change. Thaxton will vote no, and
Patterson has sounded highly skeptical.
Commission Chair Shannon Staub
voted to pass the Gottfried proposal
along for state review, but she also is no
guaranteed "yes" vote.
Without four votes, it fails. And with-
out the Gottfried component, the $90
million disappears.
So at the end of this road, funding for
River Road could be back at the begin-
ning again.

The job of Venice City
Council member has
changed a lot.
For years the council
job did not demand too
much of a person's time.
There was the every-other-
week council meeting that
took the afternoon. Ad-
ditionally, there was an
assignment to a commit-
tee or advisory board, and
occasional workshops for
the budget or maybe a
joint meeting with the
county. If you wanted,
there were community ap-
pearances.
Back then they were not
paid much for their work.
The pay increased still
not exactly the pot of gold
at the end of the rainbow,
but since then the work
has greatly increased.
There have been many
big projects that have gone
before council that are
very time consuming. This
can be looked at in differ-
ent ways.
For years council mem-
bers took their lead from
city staff and pretty much
accepted what was given
to them without too much
questioning. It has been a
weakness of previous
councils, in my opinion.
There just was not enough
questioning of the work
being proposed.
Transition to the new
council and that has
changed drastically, where
there are meetings all the
time, some excruciatingly
long.
The new council mem-
bers had pledged to listen
to the public better and
this has added a lot of time
to the meetings. That is
good, but the time de-
mands in some cases have
gone overboard.
They also wanted to
have more input on deci-
sions, such as with the
comprehensive plan, which
was set to be approved vir-
tually as presented. They
have gone through that
one village or neighbor-
hood at a time, which I
applaud to get it right but
it has taken an enormous
amount of time
So while there are some
good things coming out of
the increased time being
spent on the city's work, it
makes being a council


member a much tougher
job. It is certainly no longer
a part-time job, at least as
it is now constituted.
A person like Vicky
Noren, who has a full-time
job, finds it impossible to
make all of the workshops
and special meetings.
While her employer and
she were prepared for the
previous meeting sched-
ule, the new one is too
much. It would be so for
anyone holding a full-time
job unless they ran the
business and could afford
to be away from it that
long.
It looks like this job is
becoming a job for retirees
only. Hopefully, we will get
through the backlog of
work and get to a more
reasonable schedule that
will allow all people to be
able to consider holding it.

Today is a big day for
Venice High School as its
girls softball team attempts
tonight to win the first of two
games necessary to become
state champion.
The girls are 30-0 the
best record ever by a Ven-
ice High team and
should they win one more
it will be the most wins
ever. They are incredibly
exciting.
Although pitcher Steph-
anie Sullivan gets most of
the credit, this team has
some good offense and
great defense, as shown in
their 1-0 regional champi-
onship win. I hope we get a
huge turnout for the 7 p.m.
game in Plant City tonight
as this will be close to a
home game for Lakeland's

ponent. Tripp Miller, our
sports editor, has direc-

If they win, the champi-
onship game is 7 p.m.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Dog the Corps for better solution


Editor:
We have recently returned to our home in Rochester,
N.Y, after two months in Venice. Our friends in Venice
sent us your article regarding the South Jetty concession
stand problem. We do not own a place in Venice, but
have been visiting there for eight years.
The South Jetty is a favorite destination of ours many
times during the week. We go there for a hot dog for
lunch and enjoy the view. (We do ride our bikes to work
off the hot dog.) From the crowd there, whenever we go,
it is not just us that enjoy it.
What a shame if that nice place is forced off the prop-
erty. How can the Corps give a permit without an ease-
ment first in place? Will the concession on the North
Jetty endure the same bureaucratic nightmare should
work there be necessary?
There has to be an answer to the problem, and the cit-
izens of Venice should not be financially liable for their
mistake. Let the Corps pay. It will be spread through the
federal system that has funds contributed by all states,
making all of us who use it responsible.
Whatever final decision is made, the plan should
include keeping the concession stand. It would even be
nice if it were open in the evening to have "a dog" while
watching the sunset.
I hope there is enough outrage about this so citizens
get involved.

Freedom is
being eroded
Editor:
On the radio today I
heard a woman talking
about freedom. She had
moved to the United
States from a country that
was ruled by a dictator-
ship.
She had a hard time
accepting the fact that she
could travel to another
state without getting per-
mission from the authori-
ties or reporting to the
police when she was leav-
ing the area. She stated
that all her life the author-
ities taught her what to
think. She did not have the
freedom to make choices.
Sadly, currently we
Americans are losing our
freedoms rapidly. Some of


our dedicated, highly edu-
cated doctors are deprived
of treating their patients
with successful therapies
or remedies because it isn't
in agreement with the
AMA and can't be patent-
ed by the pharmaceutical
companies.
Many of our respected
scientists have been cen-
sured, lost their grants and
blackballed from teaching
at certain universities be-
cause they mentioned in-
telligent design or ques-
tioned the accuracy of
some of the Darwinian re-
search. Other scientists
have received the same
treatment for offering evi-
dence to contradict the
global warming threat.
Political candidates who
espouse a return to our


constitutional form of lim-
ited government are de-
nied media coverage. Their
names are never even men-
tioned. It's as though they
don't even exist.
Our minds and our chil-
dren's minds are being fed
only what the elite in this
country want us to know
and think. If you choose to
speak up, or even ques-
tion, you are labeled
quack, ignorant or called
terrorists.
I don't feel very free
anymore.

LET 'EM HAVE IT: IS THERE A LOCAL INTERSECTION THAT NEEDS A TRAFFIC SIGNAL? CALL US AT 207-1111. VEDDER from Page 6A


Waiting game. I don't know what they're waiting for
to put a set of lights up on Venice East Boulevard and 41.
They had an accident there today and there was one two
weeks ago. They had it all set up for traffic lights about a
year and a half ago because of the development across
the way, and then they came and took them down and
put the flashers back up. What are they waiting for,
someone to get killed there before they put a set of lights
up? Something should be done and very shortly.


A beginning. The Leg-
acy Trail, where does it
begin? A great many peo-
ple were excited about the
completion of the Legacy
Trail with its grand open-
ing and ribbon-cutting
ceremony. On Sunday, my
retired friends and I met at
the train depot in Venice
thinking we would be
starting our bike ride
there. What we found was
that the trail ended a hun-
dred yards or so beyond
the depot. We came to an
iron fence with a sign at-
tached that read, "Closed,"
as there was a waterway
just beyond the fence.
There was mass confu-
sion. We could see the trail
starting up again beyond
the water, but there was no
information about a de-


tour or where to go to pick
up the trail. We went up to
Route 41, turned north
and took many little turns
thinking we would see the
beginning of the trail.
Many, many people were
confused. Some gave up,
some went home, no one
had any information. We
heard we should go to
Laurel Road, after fighting
traffic and almost being hit
crossing to the other side
with cars flying by while
on the bike strip. We final-
ly made it to Laurel Road
and found the trail. Not
good. Very frustrating, un-
safe and a real hassle. Help
us by making it easier with
some bold signs at the
depot; and especially an
attention-getter in your
next edition, to guide us a


little bit, please. The best
way to take the trail now,
excluding all the detours, is
to drive straight to Laurel
Road, find the big sign "Leg-
acy Trail," park your car at
the small parking area there
and start your trip. Enjoy.
I.D., please. Who is this
person? (1) Smart (2) Works
hard (3) Does her home-
work (4) Dedicated (5) As-

Finished. Well, now we
have a Legacy Trail. A trail
should be more than a few
hundred yards down from
the train station. Neverthe-
less, give me the Venetian
Waterway Park over that
Legacy Trail any day be-
cause the Venetian Water-
way Park is at least finished.

NOTEBOOK


Burton

asserting

himself

BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

Venice High School's
Clay Burton is making
himself known as more
than Trey's little brother on
the football practice field.
The rising sophomore
has likely earned himself a
spot on the defensive line as
a weak-side tackle. Working
at that position with the first
team defense in practice
Tuesday, Burton forced a
fumble and hurried the
scout team quarterback on
the next play to praise from
teammates and coaches.
"He's going to be a huge
asset to our team this year,
I believe," said Dave Butler,
the Indians' offensive and
co-defensive line coach.
"He looks good on both
offense and defense... He's
been looking good every-
where we put him."
Coaches expect Burton
will see time at defensive
tackle, defensive end and
tight end.
"He's a big kid," Butler
said of the 6-4, 210-pound
freshman. "He's athletic,
he's good on his feet so he's
going to be a player."
Filling the 0-line
Brock Rydecki and
Danny Burke have left a
gaping hole in the Indians'
offensive line.
Tackle Mike Lopez
reported to spring camp
exactly 49 pounds lighter
than at the end of last sea-
son. Tackle Billy Nagle did-
n't drop quite so much
weight, but coaches are
hounding him to shed a
few more pounds before
the start of the fall. Those
two, especially Lopez,
should be much improved
but the rest of the line is
still wide open.
"He's really come a long
way since last year," Butler
said of Lopez, who
improved is 40 time by a
half second. "Nagle's a little
quicker off the ball this
year, too. If we can get him
to lose another 15 pounds,
he'll be that much quicker."
Brian O'Leary, last year's
junior varsity center, fig-
ures to take over in the
same spot. Billy Howe,
who started at center two
years ago, and Kyle Gilbert
are the front runners for
the two starting guard
position.
"I'm not worried about
the guard position as
much as the center. We've
got to fill that center
chute," Butler said. "Brian
O'Leary, though, is pretty
good."

BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High School
softball team is 30-0.
The Lady Indians have
already won the District
5A-12 championship and
the Region 5A-3 champi-
onship.
They have one of the
best pitchers in the state,
Stephanie Sullivan, and a
slugger, Chelsea Zgrabik,
that's batting better than
.500 with 12 home runs.
But you would never
know just how seriously
they take it by watching
them in practice or during
pregame warm-ups.
"Sometimes they get a
little out of control,
goofy-wise," Venice Head
Coach Larry Sandburg
said after Venice cap-
tured the district cham-
pionship April 18.
One need look no fur-
ther than the Indians'
pregame tradition to see
the kind fun-loving tem-
perament that has kept
this team loose during an
undefeated season.
"Do-it" started some-
time during the 2006 sea-
son, when Venice made it
to the regional semifinals.
Before the start of each
game, the girls circle up in
front of the dugout and
dance. They've done it for
all but one game this year.
First the freshmen,
then the sophomores,
then the juniors, then the
seniors and finally the
coaches break it down in
the middle of the circle.
The whole routine takes
less than five minutes, but
it's just enough to get out
the butterflies.
Popular opinion
among the seniors is that
third baseman Kayla
Ellingsen (.394 BA, 17
RBIs) is the best dancer.
"I'm not afraid to let

loose," she said.
Assistant coach Mike
Zgrabik, with the patented
"bend-and-snap" move,
was the unanimous choice
for best-dancing coach.
Bruno Tonioli and
Carrie Ann Inaba might
not give either one of
them a high score, but
that doesn't bother them.


"It's a time for us to
just relax and get the
nerves out," Ellingsen
said. "Especially for the
big games."

MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST

It's amazing the things
that we don't see.
It just dawned on me
that the coquinas seem to
have disappeared from
our beaches. Maybe it's
the time of the year that
they migrate? I haven't
seen any in my travels


from Lee County to the
Tampa Bay area. I'm talk-
ing about months since
I've seen them.
Where are the ghost
crabs? I walk miles and
miles on the beach and I
don't see them. Now we
have red algae washing
up on our beaches. Do
not confuse this with the
dreaded red tide. It was so
bad Sunday that you
could not use a lure on
the beach. Monday, the
same beach was clear
with no sign of it on the
shoreline.
When is Mother Nature
going to give us some con-
sistent east wind to calm
down the surf? Our shore-
line is starting to remind


me of the Atlantic side of
Florida.
Inshore report
There's bait along the
shore, but I'm not sure
what they are. The Venice
Jetties and the Venice
Municipal Pier have been
slow. An occasional pom-
pano, jack, king mackerel,
Spanish mackerel and
mangrove snapper. I wish I
had better news to report.
Well, fellow Sheepshead-
ites, we'll talk again next
week.

Mr Sheepshead is Dave
Hack. Contact him at 321-
8849, 486-1998 or

Transit board has big plans


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER


As South County grows,
what good would it do to
have a regional light-rail
system drop passengers
off near Interstate 75 if
they couldn't catch a bus
to a local business, shop-
ping center or Manatee
Community College?
That's why it's important
for the Sarasota/Manatee
Metropolitan Planning Org-
anization and area munici-
palities to work closely with
the Tampa Bay Area
Regional Transportation
Authority which the
Florida Legislature created
last year, said Mike Howe,
executive director of the
MPO.
TBARTA, a 15-member
board, includes elected
commissioners from Sara-
sota, Manatee, Pinellas,
Hillsborough, Pasco, Citrus
and Hernando counties
and several city govern-
ment representatives. May-
or Wayne Poston of
Bradenton represents the
cities of Sarasota and
Manatee counties on the
board.
"We're looking after the
same goals (as TBARTA),"
Howe said. "Even though,
under the legislation they
have a wide range of
authority to do roads and
rail and bus systems."
"It's not (just) rail; it's
regional transit," said Bob


Clifford, TBARTA project
manager. "Rail could be a
part of that. It could also
be managed lanes on the
interstate."
The board is developing
a regional transportation
master plan it hopes is
completed by Dec. 31.
Clifford said the plan will
reflect a "big picture" out-
look.
"When people travel
around the region, they
don't worry about a juris-
dictional boundary line,"
Clifford said. "They just
want to get to where they
want to go."
The possibilities for
TBARTAs impact are end-
less. For example, a person
could get on a bus in North
Port and get off later that
day at Tropicana Field in
St. Petersburg or Raymond
James Stadium in Tampa.
'Right and wrong'
North Port Commission
Chair Fred Tower said Rep.
Bill Galvano, R-Bradenton,
has a plan to take the
counties' $2 surcharge on
rental cars and use that to
fund TBARTA programs.
That's $18 million over
the next five years just in
Sarasota County, Tower
said. Manatee's share is
$3.8 million.
But Galvano's bill wasn't
heard in the state Senate
this session, so "it may not
go anywhere," Clifford
said.

Tower spoke with
Sarasota County Com-
missioner Nora Patterson
about TBARTA recently.
The county, he said, was
trying to drop out of
TBARTA about four
months ago.
"Early on, the Sarasota
County Commission and
other counties were cau-
tious about what TBARTA
is and what it is going to
do," Clifford said. "Those
were all fair concerns.
(But) Sarasota County has
made it clear they are in
this game. They are part of
TBARTA and will be active
participants."
"He's right and wrong,"
Patterson said. "I believe
we aren't going to get out.
We won't have that prerog-
ative. We've been trying to
get out for some time ...
(according to Tallahassee)
we can't."
Tower has a different
perspective.
"If we want to be a
regional transportation
player, TBARTA is going to
be our engine, and that is
where the money is going
to go," he said. "It's like
everything else in the
state. We're going more
regional."
TBARTAs next meeting
will be 9 a.m. Friday, May
23, at the Tampa office of
the Florida Department of
Transportation, 11201 N.
McKinley Drive.

eittce


BY MARTY DOVER
STAFF WRITER


t was like a blind date
that blossomed into a
love affair.
Courtland "Corky" Dalton
and his wife, Linda, came toVen-
ice because their friends, who
passed through on their sail boat
some years ago, told them they
would like it.
"We decided to visit Venice to
see for ourselves," Dalton said.
That led to the month-long
date this April when the Daltons
fell in love, and became inti-
mately involved, with Venice.
They departed with a vow to
return, leaving behind a token of
their appreciation Dalton's
photo montage of Venice scenes
that demonstrates just how well
they came to know the city.
What is it?
Titled "Venice Carnevale," the
montage comprises 130 pho-
tographs of sites in the Venice
area, many of which some visi-
tors never discover. They were
taken within a period of six days,
followed by 45 hours of Pho-
toshop computer editing.
"These are not just photos,"
said Dalton. His photo mon-
tages hold "secrets, whimsy, nos-
talgia, satire and double enten-
dres which become apparent
only when the viewer looks in
the box, but thinks outside," he
states. The longer you look at it,
the more it reveals, he said. For
instance, the theme in "Venice
Carnevale" is represented by
several carnival masks placed
throughout the montage.
There is humor, as well.
"I particularly like the Town
Hall clock tower," Dalton said.
"Look closely and you'll see the
two clocks are not showing the
same time." Indeed, they are
not.
He positioned two of Tito
Gaona's flying trapeze students
apparently swinging from the
arched sign at the Venice Fishing
Pier. You might be able to find
Stuie, the Signature Fine Art


Gallery cat, hiding in the mon-
tage.
Dalton's propensity for dou-
ble entendres is evident. He
placed the Venice Stationers sign
over the Venice Train Station,
cutting off the last "s." "I took
some artistic license," Dalton
said. The result is that the statue
of Gunther Gebel-Williams seems
to be labeled as the "Venice
Stationer."
Dalton learned a lot about
Venice history, which is repre-
sented by several photos, at least
one from the Venice Archives &
Area Historical Collection. The
historical sites include both the
obvious and the obscure. He
used a photo from Nokomis be-
cause it, along with Venice, was
once known as Horse and
Chaise.
A graduate of the last Ken-
tucky Military Institute class,
Duane Cornell, who recently do-
nated his KMI caps and a blan-
ket to the archives, appears in
one photo. (Hint: Look for the
wall mural behind the Venice
Gondolier Sun print shop.)
There is beauty in many of
the photos. Dalton found the 5-
foot, glass, illuminated peacock
in the lobby of Summerville on
Nassau Avenue.
"I think that's one of the most
beautiful things in Venice," he
said.
A hobby born of necessity
Dalton retired eight years ago
after working 30 years for the
Pennsylvania state government
in human resources and sys-
tems. His wife, Linda, taught
seventh-grade English for 30
years. Avid travelers, they accu-
mulated photographs from Chi-
na, New Zealand, Europe, South
America, the Caribbean and
Antarctica. That generated a lot
of photographs!
"My wife, Lin, got me started
doing photo montages," said
Dalton. "We had too many pho-
tographs in albums and on discs
that were never looked at. Lin

"Venice Carnevale" is a photo montage created by Courtland Dalton during his recent month-long visit to Venice.
The whimsical montage comprises 130 photos taken in Venice.


Win at the pump: Visit area attractions and resorts


KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Beat the high cost of gas
by staying a little closer to
home when you travel this


spring and summer.
Within a two- or three-
hour drive of Venice are
most of the places that
people from other states
and countries must fly to
- going through airport
security checks, paying
top dollar for tickets and
then having to pay fuel
surcharges for their plane
tickets and, now, for their
cruises too.
While we may be equal-
ly unlucky in that we too
have to pay more at the
pump, we are still in the
driver's seat because what


most people like to see
and do on vacation is in
our own backyard.
Area resorts are in tune
too, offering deals and
lures to Florida residents
for overnight stays and
special programs for day-
trippers too.
In Orlando, the Gaylord
Palms Resort is hosting a
summer-long Pirate Trea-
sure Hunt, with a grand
prize of $10,000. Imagine
staying in the lap of luxury
while treasure hunting for
a $10,000 prize? Sure beats
using a crumpled up map


to dig up some deserted
island in hopes that some
pirate actually did bury his
treasure there and that no
one has yet found it. Fat
chance. The odds are ever
so much better at the
Gaylord Palms and even if
you don't win, you will
have had the fun of the
search, interspersed with
some great meals, down-
time at either the adult
pool or the family pool
with its turtle and octopus
fountains. You can even
dine on board a ship in the
indoor harbor at the Gay-


lord. And for the ultimate
in relaxation, use the mon-
ey you save on airfare to
visit the resort's Canyan
Ranch spa for some thera-
peutic bodywork. The
stone massage, for exam-
ple, is done with rounded
basalt stones, which are
heated in hot water and
then dipped in oil prior to
being used as tools to pen-
etrate muscle tissue. That
treatment takes 80 min-
utes and the result is 180
degrees from the result of
most 80-minute flights.
To the south, in Fort


Myers, the Edison and
Ford Winter Estates have
put together several spe-
cial events.
Enjoy Mina Edison's tea
in the newly restored care-
taker's house at the estates
today, May 7 or May 14 or
21 or June 4, at 2 p.m.
Should you choose to
visit today, be sure to
check out Manfred Behr's
"Moonlight Garden," which
will be exhibited only until
May 12. The actual garden
itself, will be the focus of a

' Chiropractors
have long understood
that sitting places more
stress on the lower back
than standing, even though
many find sitting to be more
comfortable. Now, research
goes one step further to say that
sitting up straight is not the best
posture for sitting. While many
people consider a 90-degree body-
thigh sitting posture to be correct, a
135-degree body-thigh sitting posture
places less stress on the back and
spine. This conclusion was reached
after analyzing the spines of subjects
who assumed various sitting postures.
A new form of magnetic resonance
imaging (MRI) helped researchers
see the impact of these various
postures on the spine. If you sit for
long periods and experience
lower-back pain, have the
chiropractor analyze your sitting
posture.

Sharing could save you a ticket


JOE GIORGIANNI
HUMOR COLUMNIST


I can't believe that a guy
in Connecticut was stop-
ped by the police for dunk-
ing a cookie into a glass of
milk. After hearing about
this absolute miscarriage
of justice, I decided to
check it out. My research
has taught me several
things that should be
shared with those who
read my diatribe about
"Big Brother," and what we
might do about it.
But first, and in fairness,
I should inform you that
the above mentioned dri-
ver was in fact, speeding
through a small town
while driving on a sus-
pended license. Big deal! It
wasn't like he was choking
down a brewski or any-
thing as he sped through
the small, quaint village.
He did, however, admit to
having a sugar high from
the massive infusion of
Oreos consumed mo-
ments before being stop-
ped. He also admitted that
he had been unable to sep-
arate the cookie, to expose
the white filling. If he had,
he told the officer, he
would not have had to
hunt for the screwdriver in
the glove box, which caus-
ed him to drive on the
sidewalk.
And, had he had his reg-
ular tumbler in which to


FirtyCw .


dunk his cookies, he
would not have spilled the
contents of the Dixie cup
he was using onto his lap,
which, of course, caused a
plunging reaction of his
right foot, thereupon ac-
celerating the car over the
curb at law-breaking
speeds. One would think
that, with this admitted,
near implausible explana-
tion, that any officer of the
law would be laughing too
hard to even consider
writing the poor guy a tick-
et.
I have taken this oppor-
tunity to extend an invita-
tion to the cookie-dunking
driver in Connecticut to
come to Florida and learn
the correct way to con-
sume a complete break-
fast, lunch, and/or dinner,
including dessert, while
not only driving at per-
ilous speeds, but how to
do it while talking on a cell
phone and/or navigating
orange pylons placed in-
termittently for what only
could be for the hell of
it.
Only this morning, I was
passed by a driver, whose
sex will remain anony-
mous, who had a doughnut
lying on the dashboard
while she applied eyeliner
with one hand, cradling a
cell phone between her
head and her shoulder, and
held a cup of coffee in the
other hand. If she was
steering, it had to be with
her knees. I'm not sure
how she even could see
with the smoke from a cig-
arette hanging from the
corner of her mouth curl-
ing up into her blinking
eyes.

HEARING AIDS
with BRAINS?
Now a hearing aid that works
automatically no adjustments for
you to make no volume control
to turn up & down no buttons to
push it thinks for itself! Just put Fn
it in your ear and hear automatically Serv
in noise as well as in all other Hearii


Inasmuch as so many
of us do not take the time
to eat an adequate break-
fast before making the
drive to our places of em-
ployment, I am working
on a couple of ideas that
will help resolve the prob-
lem of being late for work,
should we take time to eat
breakfast before starting
our day.
First, I've designed a
spill-proof coffee pot that
will sit on the dashboard. It
will have a cooling tube
that will extend from the
pot directly to the driver's
mouth, eliminating the
need to hold a cup. Next, I
figured out how to put a
toaster in the glove box
that will "pop-out" rather
than "pop-up." The angle
of the "popping" mecha-
nism will be such that it
will actually shoot the
toast directly into the dri-
ver's mouth, eliminating
the need to actually reach
across to the glove box.
The center console will
contain a small microwave
oven with only one setting,
requiring that the driver
only set the timer prior to
starting the car. As the
engine is started, a pre-
packaged breakfast will be
heated to the correct pre-
set temperature allowing
for immediate consump-
tion without having to
worry about burning one's
lips, or God forbid, other
prohoudelous parts should
the food fall from onto
one's lap.
Now before anyone
thinks it might be a silly
idea to consume breakfast

Student volunteers needed for tennis qualifier


SAVE from Page 5B


The United States Tennis
Association is hosting its spring
tournament in Sarasota and is
looking for student volunteers.
This is the final qualifier before
the French Open in Paris,
France. Local coverage will be
on SNN, ABC7 and ESPN.
The tournament will be held
at El Conquistador Country


Club, 4511 Bay Club Drive,
Bradenton, FL 34210. The local
organizer is in need of ball per-
sons for the event, May 10-17.
There are two sessions per
day, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and 2-6
p.m. or last match. The kids are
not on the court four hours in a
row, but rotate on and off with
a supervisor monitoring their


time. Free food and beverages
are supplied as well as a shirt.
Recommended age is 10-18.
High school students will
receive community service
credit. Parents get free admis-
sion.
For more information, call
Tony Driscoll at 809-8996 or
visit hurricanetennis.com.


while driving to work, there is a
good side to it, besides saving
time. Assuming a driver of my
newly designed car is unfortunate
enough to get stopped by an offi-
cer of the law, he, the driver, should
consider inviting the officer to
share a hot cup of coffee, or per-
haps a doughnut kept in the stor-
age cabinet beneath the seat. Who
knows if the officer takes you up


on it, it could save you from getting
a ticket.
I'm betting the guy in Con-
necticut didn't offer the arresting
officer a cookie, which would be
enough to make any arresting offi-
cer angry.
I carry doughnuts just for that
reason. You just never know when
you might need one.

where it will remain on display, and where framed limited edi-

be seen and enjoyed,
Dalton said.
Dalton took the idea
and ran with it. After ac-
quiring Photoshop about
one and one-half years
ago, he expanded his pho-
tography hobby into
something more lucrative.
His photo montage "Rain-
ing Wrenches" of their
home town, Mechanics-
burg, Pa., (where they drop
a wrench on New Year's
Eve!) has been selling well
in a gallery there. He creat-
ed "Signs on Second" of
Harrisburg and pho-
tographed other areas in
central Pennsylvania, in-
cluding the U.S. War
College in Carlisle and
now, Venice.
What's next?
Dalton's first photo
montage was of penguins.
"I wasn't very happy
with the result," he said.
"I'm planning to redo it."
He added it will not
require another trip to
Antarctica.

Women should wear a
summer frock and hat and
the men should leave the

once, although that is a
good look to avoid all the
time. The price for tea is
$35 per person for estates

'A friend of mine, who
is known as 'The Man-
nequin Man,' has a ware-
house containing 2,000-
3,000 mannequins," he
said. "I think I can have
some fun with that."
He also plans to photo-
graph the Gettysburg bat-
tlefields during the four
seasons.
Art Fronkowiak, owner
of Signature Fine Art
Gallery on West Venice
Avenue, was so impressed
with "Venice Carnevale"
that he has decided to sell
framed limited editions of
it at his gallery.
"I've had a lot of success
with locally themed art-
work," Fronkowiak said.
"Corky's montage is atypi-
cal of other artists. I think
it will appeal to the locals
as well as the tourists."
Dalton agreed.
"The local residents
are more familiar with
the places in the mon-
tage and enjoy 'discover-
ing' them as they look at
it. At least, that's been the
case in Mechanicsburg,"
he said.
"That's the reason I do
this," Dalton said. "People
enjoy it."


two weeks from tomorrow,
on May 22, the estates and
Elderhostel are teaming
up to present a special
program about the history
of the estates, the two
recently restored homes
(at a cost of $10 million)
and the grounds. Cost of
this special program,
which includes the lec-
tures, tours, lunch and
refreshments, is $89 per

Meet CoCo and CiCi


PHOTO COURTESY OF EARS
Brother and sister, CoCo and CiCi, are light apricot toy
poodles. These very affectionate, gentle, loving lap dogs
are great with people and other dogs. (No cats, please.)
They would do well with older children who know to be
gentle. CoCo and CiCi are very intelligent, learn quickly
and walk well on a leash. CoCo and CiCi would like to be
adopted together. These little dogs need a lot of attention
and an owner who is home most of the time. They will
love sleeping with you and snuggling in your lap. Call
EARS Animal Rescue Sanctuary at 475-0636.


So that you don't have
to get up and on the way,
quite so early, go a day or
two ahead and stay on
Fort Myers Beach at the
Pink Shell Resort, which
has a delightful octopus
pool, sandy beach and
adjacent park. For reserva-
tions, call (239) 463-6181.

get in on in the fun, Margo
