Dock,



harbor


plan



conflict

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The Harbor Master Plan Task
Force met Friday at city hall to
consider how plans by the
Venice Yacht Club to expand its
dock might affect a proposed
city harbor mooring field.
City engineer Nancy Woodley
superimposed the club's plan-
ned dock, which was withdrawn
at one point and then reintro-
duced, next to the city's draft
plan to create short-term and
long-term mooring fields near-
by.
An additional finger dock
would create 17 slips, said Ven-
ice Yacht Club General Manager
DavidYarzab. The club, with 700
members, has a waiting list of 60
looking for boat slips.
The proposed mooring sta-
tions would be only 38 feet from
the end of the proposed dock, a
distance both parties agreed
was too narrow. That led task

Road rivalry? It's not a competition


EDITOR'S NOTE: This is part two
of a two-part series about River
Road.
BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

A musician called Skunk
Monkey performed recently at
Snook Haven Restaurant & Fish
Camp, near River Road and
Interstate 75.
With his music playing in the
background, business manager
Julie Adams placed a Snook
Haven entertainment calendar
on the bar.
"We have entertainment
every day of the week," she
explained. "If the road were bet-
ter it would make it a lot more
accessible to get out here."
The future of River Road
could come up when members
of the Sarasota/Manatee Metro-
politan Planning Organization
meet in July. Developer Stan
Thomas announced last week
that he would commit $90 mil-
lion to the reconstruction of
River Road.
That announcement high-
lights the importance of private-
sector involvement in funding
major road improvements, but
Thomas's pledge covers only
North River Road, from U.S. 41
north to Interstate 75.
Officials still have to figure
out how to fund the widening of

Widening the U.S. 41 Bypass is expected to cost up to $100 million.


South River Road, from U.S. 41
to the Charlotte County line.
Widening the entire 10-mile
stretch of the "Englewood Inter-
state Connector" to four lanes is
expected to cost $130 million.
The MPO board's mission is
to develop future transportation
plans, based on community
needs. It is composed of area
elected officials, who currently
rank the River Road project as
the second-highest priority for
reconstruction in the two coun-
ties.
Now that the widening of U.S.


301 in downtown Sarasota has
been fully funded, the top prior-
ity is U.S. 41 Bypass, an $80 mil-
lion-$100 million project to
widen the 2.5-mile segment
from Venice Avenue to Center
Road.
"From the MPO's perspective,
the No. 1 priority is Venice
Bypass," said Michael P Howe,
executive director of the MPO.
"Unless and until that's
changed, that is our message to
FDOT: 'Please fund that first.'"
Howe said River Road "has
always been on this list for a


place-holding position, to show
it's a significant and important
project."
Both projects are eligible for
federal earmark funds, the same
source that would have funded
the infamously proposed
"Bridge to Nowhere" in Alaska.
But Howe said while the bypass
would primarily be funded
through an annual state and
federal allocation, River Road is
currently "prioritized" for feder-
al earmarks by the MPO.

Emergency flu drill a success Prom(ises) fillfilled


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

How to get potentially life-
saving medication to more than
10,000 people quickly and safely
in the event of a pandemic dis-
ease outbreak or biological
attack that was the subject of
a drill Friday morning in the
parking lot of the Venice Com-
munity Center.
City and county emergency
personnel tested their idea of a
drive-through pharmacy with
resounding success.
About 25 volunteers, mostly
county health department and
emergency management em-
ployees, tested traffic flow for 60
vehicles and communications
logistics in what they call a
"point of dispensing" operation.
Venice police officers were on
hand to lend assistance and give
feedback.
The entire test took less than
a half hour. Officials estimated
they were able to process each
vehicle in 30 seconds to one
minute.
As approaching cars queued
behind the center, each driver
was handed a brief form to fill
out. Some had completed the
forms online prior to the test.
Others filled it out on scene to
help personnel ascertain wheth-
er anyone in the vehicle had spe-
cial medical considerations that
might require sending them
directly to a triage station.
After handing in the form,
drivers were directed to one of
three "pharmacy stations" where
they received a placebo pill rep-
resenting medication while
remaining in their car. Injections
could also have been given, if
required.
After taking the medication,
drivers were directed out of the
center's parking lot.
The idea was to see how effi-
ciently emergency personnel
could channel citizens who
drive to the center at the direc-

tion of the city or county in case
of a flu pandemic event.

After handing in the
form, drivers were
directed to one of
three "pharmacy sta-
tions" where they
received a placebo pill
representing medica-
tion while remaining in
their car.


Traffic jam
Emergency personnel con-
centrated on how to keep the
flow of automobiles moving.
Within five minutes of the
operation traffic had backed up
from Palermo Place to U.S. 41.
Volunteers and police moved
quickly to double-park the vehi-
cles, relieving the backup within
three minutes.


During a debriefing, Dr.
Kieran Smart, medical director
for Sarasota County, said he was
pleased with the outcome of the
drill. He called it organized, flex-
ible and well planned.
He drew out recommenda-
tions from staff on how to
improve the pharmacy opera-
tion. Among their findings, staff
pointed out the need for auto
mechanics in case of break-
downs, bigger signs for the
elderly or visually impaired,
preprinted directions to the hos-
pital and reducing radio chatter
among communications com-
manders during an event.
VPD officer Eric Hill made
suggestions on how to improve
traffic flow, and urged the group
to consider how to handle addi-
tional pedestrians and bicyclists
who were likely to show up.
The drill also included mobi-
lizing a county mobile health
care unit, and an information
staging RV for to provide county
public information officers and
the media with Internet hookup.

Sometimes it just takes a little
help from your friends maybe
even friends you don't know.
Friday, many locals extended
more than just a hand to help
teens get what they needed to
attend the Venice High School
senior prom. They gave clothing,
hairdos, manicures, flowers,
make-up, and cash donations to
offset the $70 per person entry
fee to the prom.
Nancy Tessier, head coach of
girls weightlifting at VHS, said
this is the fifth year she has coor-
dinated the prom boutique at
the school. It was set up a few
years ago by another employee
to help students get prom attire.
People donated some new
and nearly new dresses and
tuxes, which students started
picking out as early as mid-April.
As of Thursday, 30 dresses
and five suits or tuxes had been
given out from the boutique.
"One girl picked out a dress


and left crying and said, 'Thank
you so much,' Tessier said.
"You do it for that one moment.
You know? That is why you do
it."
Tessier said she appreciated
all that was given and believes
the donors should be recog-
nized.
Six hair-styling appointments
were given away on prom day.
Jon Marcus Salon and West
Coast Vein & Aesthetic Center
each gave $500 in salon services.
Ana Smith at Jon Marcus gave a
cut and style. Changes Hair
Salon donated its shop for the
whole day, which included four
stylists to fix the girls' hair and a
haircut for their escort, make-up
application and free flowers.
Escape Hair Salon gave away
two boys haircuts, and Ray-
mond James & Associates gave
away styling for six girls through
Escape. The Barber Shop gave
one haircut.
Barefoot Contessa donated a

DICK SHUTE was on the NASA team that sent
the first man to the moon. Shute was working at
NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in
Huntsville, Ala., in 1965 when he was appointed
the rocket builders' resident manager at the
Kennedy Space Center. He was only 27 at the
time. In 1969, Shute was in charge of the instal-
lation and setup of the Saturn V rocket that
launched Neil Armstrong on the historic Apollo
II mission. After leaving NASA, Shute took a
position with the Florida Department of Health
and Rehabilitative Services and created the

Experts issue hurricane season warnings


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

Venice City Manager
Marty Black opened the
annual hurricane pre-
paredness seminar on
Friday by sharing some
lessons he's learned after
living through Florida hur-
ricanes.
Black said his family
already has the necessary
water and food stored in
the event of a hurricane.
But he warned seminar
attendees not to overstock.
"You need enough wat-
er for each person in your
family for four or five
days," he said.
Hurricane season is
June 1 through Nov. 30.
The peak months for hur-
ricanes are August through
October.
"It's important to be
prepared for all types of
storms," Black said.
The first step in that
preparation is signing up
for the city's emergency
notification system.
Code Red
Code Red is the city's
telephone emergency no-
tification system for all
types of emergencies. It is
available to city residents
only.
Black recommended
when residents sign up for
Code Red, they provide
two phone numbers -
even if one is long dis-
tance. Both numbers will
be notified in the event of
an emergency. The system
cannot call international
numbers, however.
"Don't panic if you hear
my voice on your phone,"
he said. "It generally means
you've got two to three
days to prepare."
It isn't good to drink the
water after storms, so for
those who have signed up
for the service, Code Red
will keep them apprised of
water quality and when it
is safe to drink the water
again.
City residents can sign
up for the service on the
city's Web site, venicegov.
com; click on the Code Red
icon in the right-hand cor-
ner.
Evacuation
Venice Police Chief Julie
Williams encouraged citi-
zens to have a family disas-
ter plan that includes a
communication plan.
"If the kids are in one
place and parents in an-
other, you need to have a
plan in place about how
you will contact one an-
other and where you will
meet," Williams said.
She urged residents to
have enough supplies to
last for three days in case
of power outages and flood-
ed and debris-blocked roads.
"The police depart-
ment's first order of busi-
ness will be search and res-
cue," Williams said. 'After
that, the search and rescue
teams will focus on clear-
ing roads."
She advised residents to
prepare a "go kit" with
their valuable documents
for family and pets, med-
ications, food and water
for pets and important
medical information.
"If you are told to evac-
uate, you need to do it,"
Williams said. "If you don't,
there will come a point
when we can't get to you
because it's too dangerous
for us to be out there."
She urged people with
special needs those on
oxygen or who need am-


bulatory assistance or
other kinds of assistance
- to call 861-5000 to regis-
ter with county emergency
management staff.
"You want to do that
now rather than waiting
until a storm is on the
way," she said.
"Once an evacuation
has occurred, there will be
no re-entry until the EOC
says it's safe to return, and
the re-entry will be very
orderly and done through
check points."
This is another good
reason to sign up with
Code Red if you are a city
resident.
It's important to under-
stand that while Venice is
an island, it is not a barrier
island. If you hear on the
news that the barrier is-
lands are being evacuated,
that does not mean Venice.
Fire and ambulances
Venice Fire Chief John
Reed said that once sus-
tained winds reach 45
mph, fire trucks and am-
bulances cannot go out.
"Our trucks are top
heavy and could not with-
stand the wind," he said.
Reed advised citizens to
have weather radios and
an old hard-wired land-
line telephones. If the elec-
tricity goes out, a portable
telephone won't work.
He also urged residents
to make sure they have a
fire extinguisher in the
house and that they know
how to use it.
"If you don't know how
and you live in the city, call
us and we will come and
show you how to use your
extinguisher," he said.
"Don't wait until the fire is
in the kitchen to learn how
to use it."
Reed recommends a
multipurpose 2A 10 ABC
extinguisher.
"The 'A' puts out fires
caused by common com-
bustible such as wood and
paper," he said. "The 'B'
puts out flammable liq-
uids such as grease and the


Generators
Never run a generator
inside a house or a garage
is Reed's advice.
"Be very careful to hook
them up the right way, and
make sure you have a car-
bon monoxide detector in
the house," he said.
Why, when you're run-
ning it outside?
Because the exhaust
from the generator may
get into the house through
the eaves.
"It is also unwise to use
generators in the eye of the
storm," Reed said.
Shutters
While shutters are a
good thing, Reed said it is
important to make sure
you still have two ways to
get out of the house.
He asked homeowners
not to leave their shutters
over the windows when
they return north.
"If there is a fire in your
house, it takes us a lot

said.
Flooding
Dr. Nancy Woodley, city
engineer, asked people to
take a walk around their
neighborhood, or at least
their block.
"Be sure the stormwa-
ter inlets are clear of yard
waste or any other debris,"
she said. "It could make a
big difference in your
street flooding."
Woodley also said work
will begin soon on the
intersections of East Ven-

flooding continues to be a
problem during heavy
rains.
"We're going to try to
get rid of that," she said.

POLICE BEAT

Drug charges filed
During the week of April
28, a person reported to
the Venice Police Depart-
ment the illegal sale of pre-
scription medications at
Supermatt Laundry, 442
North Bypass. This person
stated that a white female
identified as Denise Nourse
was providing pills to cus-
tomers at that address
during her working hours.
On May 7, officers of the
VPD Detective Division
and Patrol Division con-
tacted Nourse at the Su-
permatt Laundry and told
her they were looking into
the sale of illegal narcotics
at her workplace. Asked if
she had any knowledge of
such transactions, she re-
plied, "I have provided Per-
cocet to a friend for help-
ing me."
She consented to a
search of her purse which
revealed suspected con-
trolled substances inside a
metal pill box. The pills
were identified as Hydro-
codone, Diazepam and
Alparazolam by using the
2007 Drug Identification
Bible. Nourse was unable
to provide prescriptions
for the pills.
Nourse, 53, 100 block
East Pocono Trail, was ar-
rested on three counts of
possession of a controlled
substance. Bond was set at
$3,000.

Howe said both pro-
jects can co-exist "but
there is a very, very tough
challenge right now be-
cause of limited funds for
transportation.
"Transportation pro-
jects today are so complex
and costly that you almost
have to have local funding,
state funding and fed. You
package all of these to-
gether, and the private
sector, too."
"It's not the Venice By-
pass vs. the Englewood In-
terstate Connector," said
Keith Drake, MPO princi-
pal planner. "Both have
been recognized needs for
a number of years. You try
to accomplish both."
River Road and the

jects the MPO has identi-
fied in the two counties.

projects are exclusively in
Manatee County.
Securing funds for these
projects is no simple task
during these changing eco-
nomic times. Funding
sources are changing. Con-
struction costs are high.
Some projects are contro-
versial because communi-
ties have conflicting visions
that make support hard to
coalesce.
"They all need funding
to be accomplished," said
Drake, who has been at the
MPO for 15 years. 'At one
time we had 40 on our list.
We tried to cut back so we
could focus on the most
important needs. Part of
the job of the MPO board
is to be creative and look
for new funding sources."
"This is the most chal-
lenging period from a
funding standpoint, in the
seven years that I've been
here," Howe said. "It's very
complicated, how we fund
transportation."

about reducing the radius

by switching from conven-

elastic moorings might
provide the answer to the
problem.
The elastic mooring
ropes could reduce the
radius of a mooring station
from 100 feet to 75 feet,
creating a 75-foot-wide
passage between the pro-
posed dock and proposed
mooring field.
Another task force
member suggested mov-
ing some of the long-term
mooring stations to the
east side of the mooring
field, creating additional
space.
Things to come
Others who attended
the meeting aren't pleased
with the planned dock
expansion at all.
Gary Budway said he
would withhold his com-
ments for the appropriate
forum. Earlier he said the
dock would cause even PUll
more congestion in an
already crowded area just
outside Higel Marine Park.
Under the draft harbor
management plan Higel
Marine Park would be
expanded to include a
dinghy dock and even a
dinghy storage facility
down the road.
Janice Holloway, who
lives in the Whitecap Circle

OUR VIEW



Let's get the 'dys' out of dysfunctional


What the heck is going on at 401
W. Venice Ave.?
Interminable council meetings are
one thing; a brewing civil war is anoth-
er.
On one side are Mayor Ed Martin and
Council Member Sue Lang. Elected in
November, they have shaken up city
hall by questioning how and why things
are done, especially regarding the air-
port and the comprehensive plan that's
undergoing revisions.
On the other side is Council Member
Rick Tacy, whose term expires this year
(he can run again, but only for one more
year). He was hostile toward Martin and
Lang before they were elected and has-
n't warmed to them since.
In the middle is City Manager Marty
Black and the rest of city staff and,
possibly, the rest of us.
After an April council meeting Tacy
spotted Martin and Lang in a room with
Mike Rafferty, a private citizen, with air-
port plans in front of them. Though he
didn't go into the room, Tacy concluded
they were violating Florida's open-gov-
ernment ("Sunshine") law, which gen-
erally prohibits elected and appointed
officials from discussing business out-
side a public meeting.
Martin says no violation occurred,


and says the city attorney, based on
what Martin told him regarding the
incident, agreed. City Manager Marty
Black, who was with Tacy, noted the
appearance of a possible violation but
did not reach the same conclusion Tacy
did.
Tacy also says other such meetings
have taken place, based on references
by Martin and Lang to "our plan," a plan
he says he hasn't seen.
Florida's Sunshine Law sets high
standards for government officials, to
ensure backroom deals aren't being
made. To maintain the public trust, it's
crucial that our representatives not only
follow the letter and spirit of the law, but
not even put themselves in a situation
where someone could doubt them.
We're in no better position than Tacy
to know what was actually going on in
that room, but Martin, Lang and
Rafferty should have been more sensi-
tive to how things might appear to a
passerby. Putting themselves in a seem-
ingly compromising situation was, at
best, careless.
But Tacy, whether he was right or
wrong in his conclusion, handled it
poorly. If he truly thought he caught
Martin and Lang in a Sunshine Law vio-
lation, he should have filed an ethics


complaint against them. Instead, he
took his suspicions to a newspaper.
Conflicts between council members
can be resolved in several ways, but air-
ing them in the media is not one of
them.
We're sure Tacy would not want peo-
ple jumping to a similar conclusion
regarding him in those circumstances.
And we're equally sure he would have
reacted differently had the council
members in question been his allies.
Which brings us to Black.
We don't know if anyone is trying to
get him to leave the city, but it's a virtu-
ally certain byproduct of this infighting.
He's rumored to be ready to start pack-
ing.
Black, a highly qualified and well-
regarded city manager, serves at coun-
cil's pleasure and direction, of course,
very much like a lawyer does with a
client.
But any lawyer will tell you that when
he no longer has control of his client -
meaning the client is not taking the
advice the lawyer was hired to provide,
and in fact often acts contrary to that
advice it's usually time to sever the
relationship.
Before the election city council did
too little questioning and reviewing -


at least in public session of what staff
presented. As so often happens, the
pendulum has swung to the other
extreme, with everything being put
under a microscope.
Closer study of the comp plan revi-
sions was in order, but is anything else
getting done at the city as council goes
through the document almost page by
page?
Bringing more points of view in on
the airport plan wasn't a bad idea, but
the Federal Aviation Administration has
made it clear that only a draft plan from
the city is eligible for review. Why are we
taking up so much of the agency's time
before we have one?
We doubt council is doing this at
Black's suggestion, and we know his
warnings about the strain on staff and
the city's relationship with the FAA have
gone largely unheeded.
It's time for council to get some work
done. Accelerate the review of the comp
plan and get into the formal adoption
phase.
Reach a consensus on how we can
best address FAA mandates regarding
the airport and submit a plan.
Equally important, it's time for them
to start pulling in roughly the same
direction before they pull the city apart.


If I were running


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST


When each of us was
young we thought it would
be neat to be president. I
just didn't know my satis-
faction would be as presi-
dent of the Rotary Futures
Program. Yet many of us
still conjecture what we
might do if we were the
president.
We have been watching
Hillary Clinton and Barack
Obama (how would you
like the initials B.O.?) every
single day struggling against
each other to win a delegate
or two. They sound the
same, crying for health in-
surance for millions of
Americans and getting out
of Iraq. It is old and tiring.
John McCain's message is
no clearer or more inspir-
ing.
Isn't it time that we do
what Newt Gingrich and
the struggling Republican
Party did some 14 years
ago by developing a list of
needs and solutions? It
was called Contract with
America, with a list of solu-
tions to key problems al-
most all people wanted
solved. (While it was excit-
ing for a few years, they
forgot to refresh their con-
tract). The new one could
have an exciting name like
Charter for Change.
If I were running for
president, I would want to
do a lot of what Marco Ru-
bio, speaker of the Florida
House, has done. He did a
lot of listening of experts
and common people and
then developed a list of a
hundred solutions to
things that concern us.
From that he wrote a book,
"100 Innovative Ideas for
Florida's Future."
It is a practical list that
everyone can relate to. It
was a good recipe for
change, much like I think a
presidential candidate
should develop to win.
This could be a real plat-
form for people in Venice
and Nokomis and the
whole country.
1. There has to be a plan
to lower energy costs


quickly, as they are out of
control. Spiraling energy
costs are creating inflation,
which is is very dangerous.
Cutting federal gas taxes
for the summer is not
enough, although at least
it is an idea to help; we
may need to use reserves.
We need to put a lot of
pressure on oil companies
over their huge profits a
thorough investigation -
and certainly we should be
working with the world
leaders who control oil.
2. We must put together
a powerful task force to
recommend changes to
our energy policy that will
not just result in the catchy
but inefficient ethanol
solution but rather a mul-
tifaceted response. The
group has to be nonparti-
san as the political types
have preconceived ideas
about what has to happen.
Goals should include
requiring auto manufac-
turers to make their vehi-
cles more efficient. (They
are moving that way for
sure.) The emphasis on
energy issues that Gov.
Crist has raised needs to
be done nationwide. All
governors need to be on
board. Why should just
California and a couple of
states make these kinds of
commitments?
a. This likely means more
oil drilling, more nuclear
energy and incentives for
all the other sexy but mini-
mal sources like wind,
solar, hydro even burn-
ing trash. Tax incentives
are crucial to making this
work, as is some people
moderating their views.
b. We need someone
passionate about energy,
who concentrates on it
and works on it day in and
day out someone who
addresses the public about
how better to save and
takes the lead, rather than
leaving it to the bureau-
crats.
c. We should pay for
new, good ideas to save
energy. Good, old-fash-
ioned money should be
given to those who invent
ways to save natural re-
sources and energy.
3. We need to have a
plan to reduce the cost of
drugs, including being
open to letting agencies
negotiate for lower prices,
allowing Canadian drug
imports, putting pressure
on the drug companies,
etc. Again, a panel of non-

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Policy nonrenewal had silver lining


Editor:
This past Saturday, State Farm Insurance sent me a
nonrenewal notice telling us they were removing wind
and tropical storm insurance in late August smack in
the middle of hurricane season. Along with thousands of
other homeowners, we were no longer worth the risk.
Though I'd been with State Farm for nearly 30 years, I
wasn't surprised, because of all the articles in the paper.
Amazingly, I never filed a single homeowner's claim in all
those years.
On Monday, I replaced my homeowner's insurance
along with hurricane coverage and moved all of my
other insurance policies to reliable companies that
wanted my business. I was delighted to learn that we will
be saving several hundreds of dollars.
After I canceled all six insurance policies (homeown-
er's, auto, etc.) in one day, the State Farm agent called
asking if "they'd done anything wrong." I told him that
short of taking away wind coverage during hurricane
season, I had no bones to pick with his company.
If you get a nonrenewal notice, take heart, act quickly
and get help from one of the local independent insur-
ance agents that have been serving our community for
many years. They can find you reputable companies to
insure your home, and you might even be surprised and
save some money.

SUN NEWSPAPERS 7A


LET'EM HAVE IT: WHAT IMPORTANT JOB DID THE FLORIDA LEGISLATURE LEAVE UNDONE THIS YEAR?


CALL US AT 207-1111.

They're called control towers


Towering. I think we should go forward with our air-
port. I feel we need a control tower at the airport. I think
it would have helped Harry Lawrence if he had had
somebody to signal back to. Who knows, we may have
never found his plane if someone had not seen it. Let's all
call our city council and encourage them to put a control
tower at the Venice airport because we don't even know
who's out there. Apparently, we don't know what's com-
ing in and out, with what happened before 9-1-1. Call
the council and tell them to leave our airport alone, and
let it develop, for the safety of our pilots coming in and


Overcharged. This to
the person who was com-
plaining about paying $15
an hour to park at the
Tampa airport. I'm not
sure where you parked,
but I parked there for two
weeks and they charged
me $9 a day.
First things. I think be-
fore any more development
is approved out at Pine-
brook Road, the entire street
should be four-laned and
the intersection with Venice
Avenue needs desperately
to be improved.
Bad air. Jacaranda Boul-
evard should be renamed
Dead Tree Lane. Dozens of
trees have been killed by
the ugly air plants you see
all over them. The highway
people are guilty of crimi-
nal neglect for spending so
much money on new trees
and not keeping them
alive. I've grown jacaranda
trees from seed, 15 feet tall


and blooming after only
five years. I think the high-
way people should use the
medians for planting beds
and growing their own
trees.
Supportive. What is
wrong with you people at
our local newspaper? Have
you completely forgotten
our beautiful Venetian
Waterway Park, which has
been built and used and
absolutely loved by every-
body in Sarasota County?
Why is it we are not using
that as a connector to the
Legacy Trail, when it is
completely and Legacy
Trail is not? Why are we
putting so much emphasis
on Legacy and not contin-
uing to support our beau-
tiful Venetian Waterway
Trail? Take a look paper,
and let us know that we
still have the support of
the Gondolier Sun for our
beloved Venetian Water-


way Park.
Lefty. Before serious
construction began, I walk-
ed the Legacy Trail a lot
and I loved it. Now that the
trail is completed, paved
and open to bicycles, it is
simply no longer fun or
even safe for pedestrians.
And if you have a dog, for-
get it. But I am not going to
be driven off the trail by
rude riders in beanies and
Spandex. Bicycles are clas-
sified as vehicles by the
Florida Department of
Motor Vehicles, and when
there are no sidewalks, the
Department of Motor Ve-
hicles instructs pedestri-
ans to walk on the left fac-
ing oncoming vehicular
traffic. Therefore, from
now on, I will walk on the
left side of Legacy Trail fac-
ing the oncoming vehicles.
Further, for their own safe-
ty, I invite all of my fellow
pedestrians to join me on
the left side of the Legacy
Trail.
Yearling. In regard to
Venice City Council and
the way they're reviewing
the proposed comprehen-
sive plan, I agree 100 per-
cent with what they're do-
ing. If this had been done
years ago like it should
have been done, and more
properly, we wouldn't be
reviewing this for weeks on


end. I hope it takes them
all year to finish it.
No permission. Once
again, a business gets
away with violating all the
laws of the city, not getting
permits and doing work
without permits. Why do
we bother to even have a
planning commission or a
permit section in the city?
All they do is give a slap on
the hand. I think what
neighbors and visitors
should do is just not go to
that tavern at all because
of all the violations and the
terrible attitude of the
owner. Intimidation is not
a nice thing.
Buffered. Get rid of the
interstate so we can live in
peace? Give me a break,
folks. You chose to live next
to an interstate. Obviously
you could afford it, so I guess
you can probably afford a
buffer wall. Build a buffer
wall and stop complaining.
More alert. I took a trip
downtown to the island
and found that the graffiti
on the wall is a little bit too
much. It's starting to look
trashy. Enough's enough. I
can see a mural, but that's
too much. There's a fence
around the parking lot at
the Rialto that's quite dan-
gerous, half down. Does
anybody downtown at the
island ride around the city
to see what's trashy and
what's not? Come on, let's
clean it up and be a little
more alert.


VEDDER from Page 6A


partisan experts should
make recommendations
- and quickly.
4. There should be a
plan again, much like
Gov. Crist's of making
more health insurance
available through private
mechanisms. Just giving
people health insurance is
only a prescription to run-
ning up a bigger deficit
than we already have.
When I was in Sweden
they had "free" health care
but they also had income
tax rates at 60 percent. My
guess is Americans want it,
but not at that cost.
5. We need a plan to get
the deficit under control.
That is pretty tough in slow
economic times. I would
do what Clinton once did
and bring a group of econ-
omists as well as other
administrators with expe-
rience, who study state
and other governments, to
make recommendations.
Obviously, the cost of se-
curity post-Sept. 11 and
the war are huge reasons
for this, so those areas
have to be a major part of
the discussion.
6. As part of the solution


we have to prohibit tack-
ing on costly projects to
bills they don't relate to.
This is costing this country
billions and must be stop-
ped. The line-item veto
would be great but it's un-
constitutional (currently),
but there are solutions if
the political types can do
it. As a start, no item
should go to a vote with-
out having been through
the committee process.
Nothing that doesn't relate
to the bill it is attached to
should be allowed.
7. We have to develop
some goals in the war
effort that will allow troop
reductions. Giving timeta-
bles to the generals run-
ning the war is wrong and
only helps the enemy, but
goals certainly would give
them something to strive
toward, make them ac-
countable and give every-
one hope.
8. We have to make
trade fair. China, Mexico
or whoever can have tariffs
and lower standards and
our country can't. Our
industry has to meet strict
standards and other coun-
tries don't; that put us at a


huge disadvantage. Other
countries should not be
allowed to bring substan-
dard products in our
country. At the same time,
we need to cut wasteful
pork-barrel subsidies to
some industries. Again,
bring the best minds in to
make recommendations
that will get us closer to
balance.
9. We need a way to
make our government ef-
fective and less partisan.
We need cooperation that
we have not seen in the
last 20 years. I hate to keep
mentioning Gov. Crist, but
he has found that it is
important to support good
ideas no matter where
they come from. He has
put Democrats in his cabi-
net and has worked close-
ly with all people with
good intentions and ideas
to get things done. I'd
guess his conservation
and energy policies are not


tops on the Republican
list, but he recognized
those areas as vital. Find a
candidate who can point
to a good idea from the
other party (like a Repub-
lican wanting stem-cell re-
search) and then you
know there is hope. We
don't need someone who
claims to be a consensus
builder but has no real
intention of doing it. We
have seen a lot of those. A
person like Sen. Lieberman
is one who knows how to
work both sides; Sen.
McCain has been closest to
that of those running.
10. We need hope the
kind Kennedy and Reagan
gave us.
In any case, we need a
list we all can relate to and
someone to convince us it
will get done.

Floridians don't


want higher taxes


VERN BUCHANAN
GUEST COLUMNIST


As April 15 marks the
day people pay their taxes,
Tax Freedom Day marks
the day we stop working
for the government and
start working for ourselves.
Tax Freedom Day was
April 26 in Florida this
year. That means for the
average Florida worker, all
of his or her earnings for
the first 117 days of the
year go to pay federal, state
and local taxes. Then peo-
ple are free to take care of
their own family's needs.
Tax Freedom Day was
first conceived by Florida
businessman Dallas Hos-
tetler in 1948 and is now
calculated annually by the
nonpartisan Tax Foun-
dation. The foundation
uses government tax data
to determine the date by
which taxpayers have earn-
ed enough to pay their
federal and state tax bills.
Residents of different states
pay different amounts of
state and local taxes.
On the national level,
Tax Freedom Day this year
was April 23. That means
the average American will
work 114 days nearly
four months before
earning enough money to
pay this year's tax obliga-
tions.
Tax Freedom Day was
three days earlier this year
than in 2007, thanks to the
tax rebates provided by the
economic growth package
passed by Congress and
signed by the president.
Americans will still work
longer to pay their taxes in
2008 than they will for
food, clothing and housing
combined. In fact, the
average American has to
work 74 days to afford his
or her federal taxes and 43
days to cover state and
local taxes. It takes 35 days
of work to cover the aver-
age annual grocery bill, 60
days to cover typical hous-
ing needs, and about 50


days to pay for average
medical expenses.
At a time when the
economy is shaky and
Americans are struggling
to get by, the government
should not be looking to
increase the tax burden on
its citizens. But every mid-
dle-class family would pay
more in taxes under the
tax-and-spend budget
passed by the U.S. House
in March.
We don't need more
money in Washington -
we need less spending.
I voted recently for leg-
islation to stop the nearly
$700 billion tax increase
included in the Fiscal Year
2009 House budget. The
House voted 220 to 196
against the "Tax Increase
Prevention Act" (H.R.
2734). The bill would make
permanent the middle-
class tax relief signed into
law by the president in
2001 and 2003 which is to
expire in 2010.
The record tax hike
would cost each Florida
family as much as $3,040
in additional taxes. Flor-
ida's working families are
already facing soaring gas
prices, an uncertain hous-
ing market and increased
costs of living. The last
thing they need from out-
of touch Washington pol-
iticians is more taxes to fi-
nance more wasteful gov-
ernment spending.
Nearly 70 percent of my
constituents who re-
sponded to a recent survey
feel they already pay too
much in taxes. I agree.
Taxpayers don't want
and can't afford the finan-
cial burden of higher taxes.
Many families have been
forced to tighten their belts
to make ends meet. Con-
gress should do the same.

sents Florida's 13th district
in the U.S. Congress.

County Commission to vote on 5,700-home village


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


On Tuesday, the Sarasota
County Commission faces one
of its most important land-use
decisions in recent memory.
Fourth Quarter Properties, of
Newnan, Ga., will seek a compre-
hensive-plan amendment at a
public hearing that day to build
Gottfried Stewardship Village, con-
sisting of 5,700 homes, 150,000-
square feet of office space and a
50,000-square-foot shopping cen-
ter on 2,850 acres 2 miles northeast
of downtown Englewood.
In all, Fourth Quarter seeks to
develop 10,850 acres of Thomas
Ranch. Through the creation of
the West Villages Improvement
District, the consortium hopes
to build more than 22,000
homes and some 3 million
square feet of commercial space
on Thomas Ranch over the next
three decades, including 15,000
homes on 7,800 acres already
annexed into North Port.


Gottfried Stewardship Village
is the fifth project proposed by
Fourth Quarter on the 26-
square-mile property, which it
bought in 2001 for $78 million.
In various stages of develop-
ment are 1,500-unit Sarasota
National; 1,680-acre, 1,999-unit
Gran Paradiso; 1,048-acre, 1,869-
unit IslandWalk; and a 109-acre
town center with 400 residential
units and 1.35 million square feet
of retail-office space.

Enough good stuff
In October, Gottfried Steward-
ship Village received tentative
approval from three county com-
missioners: Joe Barbetta, Paul
Mercier and Shannon Staub.
"This plan provides a grid sys-
tem, infrastructure, long-range
planning," Mercier said at the
time, "instead of the death of a
thousand cuts we've dealt with
through rezone requests."
Barbetta agreed with Mercier.
"If we throw this thing out
without looking at the net bene-


fits, we may end up with some-
thing that we're not happy with,"
Barbetta said.
"I'm going to vote for this
now," Staub told Fourth Quarter.
"But I can tell you I may not vote
for it on adoption."
Staub cited concerns with
Fourth Quarter and its determina-
tion to build so many homes with-
out a financial plan giving the
assurances about stormwater and
road-building she needed to see.
"But there is enough good
stuff in (the plan) that I'm willing
to let it go up (before the state),"
Staub said.

No rush
High on the list of the "good
stuff" was a pledge from the
developers to put together an
interlocal agreement with coun-
ty staff for district infrastructure
improvements. This included a
utility master plan and environ-
mental benefits such as high
water quality not only on site,
but in downstream receiving


bodies throughout the Lemon
Bay ecosystem as well.
Another benefit came in the
assurance that the project would
take shape slowly over manyyears,
easing the impact of growth.
"There will be zero houses
out there in 2010 and 2011," said
Jeff Boone, attorney with Fourth
Quarter. "The first ones at the
earliest would be out there in
2012 and might not even be out
there that soon."
And then there was the $90
million in cash and loans Fourth
Quarter offered for raising and
widening River Road from Inter-
state 75 to U.S. 41 in exchange
for a "fair share" agreement it seeks
with the county for a proportion-
ate share of impact fee credits.

Digging deeper
Thus far, commissioners Jon
Thaxton and Nora Patterson
stand opposed to the plan.
"We are deep in a financial
hole today with transportation
infrastructure funding," Thaxton


has said. "This just digs us deep-
er into the hole."
He said the entire WestVillages
project which promises to
bring in another 40,000 to 50,000
people would severely affect
areas beyond its perimeters,
overburdening such roadways as
U.S. 41 and Jacaranda Boulevard.
Patterson agreed with Thax-
ton, noting the proposed 3 mil-
lion square feet of commercial
space would equal three Sara-
sota Square Malls.
"It's a lot of units for an area
that's very weak on infrastruc-
ture," Patterson said. "And (fund-
ing) River Road is by no means
the answer for this."
The comp-plan amendment
will require a 4-1 super-majority
vote to pass. If for some reason
that vote is delayed until after a
May 16 deadline imposed by the
state, it will then require a 5-0 vote
to pass, due to last week's charter
amendment requiring unani-
mous votes on matters relating to
the urban service boundary.


Meeting Monday to discuss mining proposal


BY GERALD A.
ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

The proverbial "law of
unintended consequences"
could be overturned Mon-
day morning at Venice City
Hall by an unusual gather-
ing.
City and county elected
and appointed officials,
representatives of the four
companies involved in min-
ing operations in North
Venice and residents of
Venetian Golf & River Club
will meet at 10 a.m.
They were invited by
County Commission Chair
Shannon Staub to discuss
the proposed rezoning of
288 acres of land to the
north of the 900 homes in
VGRC. The meeting came
about after Staub and
Commissioner Paul Mercier
attended a meeting of club
residents two months ago.
A second reading of the
rezoning petition by the
city council is scheduled
for May 27.
Citing the current ad-
verse effects of the mining
operations on 70 of the
900 VGRC homes, which


have an estimated total
value of $50 million, resi-
dents asked for a discus-
sion of the petition. They
had asked for Staub's help
in arranging to meet with
representatives of APAC
Southeast Inc., Venice Min-
ing and Minerals LLC,
CemexInc. and Miami Val-
ley Ready Mix of Florida Inc.
The VGRC homeowners
association seeks relief from
the operations' noise, dust
and silica particles a
known carcinogen it says
are blown into the neigh-
borhood from 50-foot-high
mounds of mining residue,
and the bright lights
employed for night-time
operations. It's also seeking
the restoration of tree and


plant buffering required by a
pre-annexation agreement.

Not enough
WCI Companies, devel-
oper of VGRC, constructed
an 8-foot stone wall and
planted shrubbery at one
point on the subdivision
border, and created anoth-
er buffer on the fourth hole
of the golf course. But sev-
eral trees felled on the
commercial side of a dirt
road separating the prop-
erties led residents to
object to the 75-foot-wide
buffer as inadequate.
Current mining opera-
tions are permitted under
the pre-annexation agree-
ment. The petition would
change zoning from OUE-

planned industrial devel-

The unintended conse-
quences evolved over the
years, after the city sought to
remove two cement plants
from Venice island to east of
Interstate 75. One objective
then was to establish a com-
mercial/industrial center
that would attract other
manufacturing businesses.

Burton,

Archer

impress in

first spring

scrimmage

Venice High School
quarterback Trey Burton, a
rising junior, has attracted
some NCAA Division-I
attention.
University of Florida
offensive coordinator and
quarterbacks coach Dan
Mullen was on hand
Saturday as Burton and
the Indians took the field
for their first scrimmage of
the spring. Under Mullen's
watchful eye, Burton com-
pleted eight of 16 passes
for nearly 200 yards and
three touchdowns. He also
found the end zone on the
ground on a 5-yard run.
"I'm just trying to show
them what I do," Burton
said.
Burton broke runs for 5,
9 and 10 yards, but looked
more comfortable in the
pocket than he did all last
season. Part of the reason
could be that his receivers
were catching the ball bet-
ter than they have all
spring. Most notably, Dri
Archer came up with five
receptions and a pair of
touchdowns.
"Dri [Archer] was just
catching the ball no mat-
ter what. He was snagging
it everywhere... Everybody
can catch, they're making
it real easy for me."
Evan Boone had a
touchdown reception and
Robert Fordham and Justin
Grant each caught balls
from Burton, but tailback
Archer was open all after-
noon and had a big day
running the football


despite his small size.
Archer ran for 78 yards on
eight carries for a solid 9.8
yards per carry.
"I was looking for the
hole and trying to do what
I can do," Archer said. To
his detractors that say he's
not big enough at 135
pounds to run between
the tackles, Archer said:
"Come try to tackle me see
what happens."
Archer, who runs a 4.35
40-yard dash, ran it well to
the outside but showed no
fear in taking it up the
middle. The 5-5 speedster
actually broke some tack-
les on the way to a big day.
"He's going to be special
for us," Venice Head Coach
John Peacock said. "I'm
very excited about him."
Peacock was not as
complementary as Burton
was of the receiving corps.
He pointed to a handful of
dropped passes early on
and in a goal-line simula-
tion. But the only negative
of the day, he said, was a
goal-line fumble by full-
back Ethan Mix.
Mix, however, will likely
not see much time at the
position, anyway. He will
be one of the leaders on
defense as a linebacker.
"We definitely got better
today," Peacock said. "We
had good intensity and I
felt like we maintained that
intensity throughout prac-
tice. Overall, I feel like we
got a lot better today."
Injury report
Strong-side defensive
tackle Gerald Oriol, who led
the team with six sacks last
season and was third on the
team with 41 tackles, left
the field on a golf cart after
Saturday's scrimmage.
The rising senior had
ice on his right knee and
left the trainer's office on
crutches. It is not yet
known when Oriol will
return, but he will have an
MRI sometime this week.
"I told Gerald he's going
to have all kinds of adver-
sity in his life and this is
just something he's going
to have to overcome,"
Peacock said. "He's a hard
worker and he's going to
do it, that's just part of
football."

Shofe has high expectations





for U.S. swimmers in Beijing


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


Even though this summer's
Olympics in Beijing will present dif-
ficult problems for competitors -
choking smog 24 hours a day and
swimming events in the early morn-
ing to allow NBC to satisfy the net-
work's prime-time needs you can
expect American swimmers to set
dozens of new records.
That's the opinion of Larry Shofe,
head coach of the YMCA Sharks and
the Riverview High School women's
swim team. He is considered to be
the top coach in Florida and one of
the best nationally for teams from
elementary to high-school levels.
The Chinese government has
promised to reduce the smog level,
but many Olympians plan to wear
masks in their events. Swimmers
have no such fallback. And they are
training earlier in the day to adjust.
Michael Phelps, who won six gold
and two bronze medals in swim-
ming events in Athens four years
ago, has become an early riser to get
ready for early morning events.
After all, NBC paid an estimated
$894 million to televise the 2008
games. Phelps told The New York
Times that he has been hitting his
wake-up button at 6:50 a.m. to rep-
resent the country at his best, and
help bail out the network.
Shofe offers Phelps as the No. 1


example of why we will see swim
event records fall. He was only 15 in
his first summer games at Sydney.
Four years later, in Athens, he
walked off with those eight medals.
This year, at 23, some sports pun-
dits think he can win eight more
gold medals.
"It used to be that 16-year-olds
would win gold medals, then retire
before the next Olympics," Shofe said.
Don Schollander was the top
American in 1968 at the age of 16. He
was done at 20, before the 1972 games.
"But not today. It's all very differ-
ent. Thanks to better training, corpo-
rate sponsorships, endorsements,
more frequent meets in this country
and abroad against tougher interna-
tional competition, American swim-
mers are staying around longer. And
they're doing better," Shofe observed.
When Shofe was invited five years
ago to direct the Sharks program, it
was considered successful. It is now
outstanding. Just three weeks ago,
the boys and girls teams romped at a
four-day meet in Fort Lauderdale.
The Sharks' winning score was
twice that of the second-place team.
More than 130 YMCA teams from
around the country competed.
"In the 1960s and 1970s, 'dry land'
training was taboo. I lifted weights
despite my coaches telling me it
wasn't good for me. But I felt
stronger in the water," Shofe
recalled.


"Our kids lift weights, they run
several times a week and they're in
the pool every day but Sunday year
'round. It has paid off," he said.
His program parallels the nation-
al one. Although, in his judgment,
Australia, Japan, China and some
other countries recognize their
swimmers much more than the U.S.,
we have been advancing.
USA Swimming in Colorado
draws America's best swimmers to a
high-tech facility for training under
the nation's top coaches. Stipends as
high as $1,200 a month enable
swimmers to train into their late 20s,
according to Shofe.
"No one will make as much as he
or she could from a job. But that
money pays for food, training fees,
transportation. It's not a bad life if
you're motivated and good at your
specialty," he said.
Shofe and his coaches are strong
on motivation. He cited John
Breunning, head of aquatics at the
Venice YMCA and Venice High
School head swimming coach, once
a Sharks swimmer who qualified for
the Olympics in 1996. Shofe said that
Breunning has recruited many
Venice area swimmers for the Sharks.
Among current team members
are Mark Cox, Jessica Wright, Tyler
Revels and Tori Kontor, all of Venice;
Victoria Lovrey and Tim Tudor of
Nokomis; and Melinda Spinella,
Osprey.

'w 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.

FCAT scores up for grades four, eight


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota County showed
a mild improvement over
last year in average district
scores for grades four and
eight on the 2008 Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test Writing+ results.
However, the district
posted much higher num-
bers than the state average
test scores this year.
Test results were released
May 8.
The whole test average
for the district's grade four
in 2008 was 333, up 7 points
from 326 in 2007 and 29
points higher than the
state's 304 average this year.
The 2008 average score
for grade eight was 316, up 5
points from 311 in 2007 and
16 points better than the
state's 300.
Average scores for the
10th grade remained un-
changed from 2007 at 304;
however, the results showed
a two-point advantage over
the state average score of 302.
These test scores com-
bine essay and multiple-
choice portions of the FCAT
and ranges from 100 to 500
points. Results for the essay
score, which is scored on a
1-6 point scale, and for
achievement levels that are
reported in a range from 1-
5, are reported separately.
About 9,200 students par-
ticipated in the spring
Writing+ assessment.
"It is intriguing that
Sarasota County went up in
fourth- and eighth-grade
average scores but stayed
the same at the 10th grade,"
said Dr. Natalie Roca, execu-
tive director of research and
assessment for the district.
Pine View High School
scored the highest mean
Scale Score in Writing+ at
404 for the 10th grade. Ven-
ice High School's 10th grade
scored second highest at
319. These two schools top-
ped all other Sarasota Coun-
ty high schools on the Scale
Score, which is used to report
test results on the entire test.
Essay scores
For the essay test, stu-
dents wrote based on a
writing "prompt," or idea.
The district's combined aver-
age writing essay scores
showed an increase of two
points at grade eight, re-
mained flat at grade four
and decreased by two
points at grade 10.
The state results differed
somewhat. They showed a
decrease of one point at
grade four and remained
flat at grade 10, but they
showed an increase of two
points at grade eight, like
the district.
Adequate Yearly Progress
and school grade are based
on the essay portion of the
writing test, according to
Roca; students must earn at
least 3.5 to show proficiency
in writing.
Students scoring 3.5 on
the essay increased from 84
percent to 85 percent from
2007 to 2008 for grade four
and from 88 percent to 90
percent for grade eight. How-
ever, the number decreased
from 77 percent to 75 per-
cent for the 10th grade from
2007 to 2008.
"It is distinctive that the
percentage of kids profi-
cient based on the total test
has increased compared to
last year for all three grades
and those percentages are
higher than the state," Roca
said. "However, on the essay
portion, we have seen a
decline in the percentage of
kids scoring 3.5 and above
on the persuasive prompt."
The persuasive essay
prompt for high school stu-
dents was to write about

unteer to work three hours in

My mother's

cooking

BY DOBIE VICKERY
GUEST WRITER

I have long been an avid cook
and collector of cook books, but
the best lessons in cooking came
from watching my mother's
seemingly effortless triumphs in
the kitchen.
Annis Celia Swartz was famous
for what was known as "setting a
fine table," and, although her culi-
nary expertise seemed ordinary
fare to her family, her friends eager-
ly awaited invitations to her lun-
cheon or dinner parties. She had
been born and brought up in New
York City and mushrooms under
glass were no strangers to her.
She was ahead of her time in
realizing that the proper "presen-
tation" of a dish was part of the
pleasure of eating it. Her salads,
served on a big silver platter, were
a feast for the eyes as well as for
the palate. Her chicken fricasee on
a big Minton serving dish, with
her incomparable velvety- smooth
and flavorful gravy, was a dish we
begged for often. No lumps mar-
red her mashed potatoes, no
stringiness her roasts, no soggi-
ness her perfectly cooked vegeta-
bles.
As for the biscuit dough with
which she made tiny one and one
half-inch biscuits to go with her
homemade strawberryjam, heav-
enly!
Her strawberry shortcake put


Simply MOM
Little sister Maggie
Little son Tom
But we all know the leader
Her name is simply Mom

Birds upon the window sill
Live upon the street
Hear a little pitter patter
That emits from their tiny
feet

Flying to your finger
Rest upon your palm
Nature's great we know that
But so is simply Mom

Patrick Daut, fifth grade
Venice Elementary School


mommy,


means to tell the stories of those
special ladies.
Children have been honoring
their mothers almost as long as
they have been teasing, tor-
menting and loving them. In
the United States, they have
been doing it officially since
1914, when President Woodrow
Wilson signed a proclamation
decreeing the second Sunday in
May would forever be known as
Mother's Day.
On this, the 94th anniversary
of the holiday, we are printing
the letters, poems and other
tributes received from children

all others to shame, and was a
model of what a real shortcake
should be. It was a huge, two-lay-
ered affair made with a rich biscuit
dough, with lots of fresh strawber-
ries between the layers and on top,
the whole creation smothered
with thick whipped cream lavishly
applied and all served on a special
flat dish with strawberry decora-
tions. Wonderful!
Mother could even make lowly
tripe taste delicious. When her
butcher informed her that the
correct kind of honeycombed
tripe from the fourth stomach of
the cow was available, she spent
two days preparing a dish in
which the squares of tripe were
tender morsels in a rich cream
sauce with tiny white onions.
Utterly delicious!
Her only failure (some might
call it a triumph) was the cause
of much teasing from the family.
At a luncheon party she gave
shortly after Prohibition ended,
Mother decided that the ladies
would enjoy a sherry flip. Indeed
they did, and after the first
round led to their happy giggles,
she went to the cellar for more
sherry for more sherry flips. To
her horror she discovered that
she had made the first batch
with vinegar. The inexperienced
ladies never knew the differ-
ence, and thought her very so-
phisticated to serve such deli-
cious alcoholic drinks.
As a bride it took me a while to
live down some of my early cook-
ing mistakes, but somehow I must
have absorbed some of my moth-
er's secrets, for I soon plunged
happily into the world of cooking
and my mother was right there
beside me as my first and most
admiring guide.


Mother's Day
We have gone to Disney and
had lots of fun
We sometimes wish it was
never done
We have gone to water parks
We've done many things
together
Sometimes we've had our
arguments
But no matter what we still
care for each other

Daniel Alvaro, fifth grade
Venice Elementary School

as young as 10 and as old as 96.
One tribute was written in 1953
by 17-year-old George Duthie,
who read it again to his mother
on the occasion of her 88th
birthday.
"Because of her hearing loss,
she heard little that evening," he
said, "but, on reading it later,
she smiled and said she
remembered the poem."
Frank Drab, facilitator of the
Life History Writing Class, wrote
a lengthy piece about his Irish
mother for St. Patrick's Day and
decided to share it with us for
Mother's Day. It has been edited


only to make it shorter, without
cutting any memories of his
mother.
Dobie Vickery, 96, is the old-
est contributor to the Mother's
Day page.
"I have long been an avid
cook and collector of cook
books, but the best lessons in
cooking came from watching
my mother's seemingly effort-
less triumphs in the kitchen,"
she wrote in a note accompany-
ing her story.
Ruth Tuohy, also in the Life
History Writing class, refers to
her mother as a "super woman"


for all her myriad accomplish-
ments.
Assigned to write poems, the
efforts of the fifth-graders are
much shorter, but no less lov-
ing. As space prohibited the use
of all the poems, five were
selected to balance the five
adult tributes.
Also included is a letter from
Sandy Sudnik, whose son was
born on Mother's Day in 1997
and would have been 31 today,
May 11, 2008.
Enjoy the day, the memories,
and mom.

Frank Drab is the facilitator of
the Life History Writing Class at the
Senior Friendship Centers. For St.
Patrick's Day, he wrote a tribute to
his Irish mother.

BY FRANK DRAB
GUEST WRITER

My mother, Katherine Kenny,
was born Feb. 22, 1891, to Ellen
McGarry Kenny and Edward
Kenny, in the hamlet of Nad-
naveagh in the parish of Tulsk,
Strokestown, County Roscom-
mon, Ireland. The hamlet is in
the northeastern quarter of the
Irish Free State.
Ireland's history, back to its
invasion by England in 1169, has
been one of tragedy and turmoil,
involving religion, politics, old
family feuds and more.
Though the potato famine
happened some 40 years before
my mother's birth, it still affected
her life. Starvation and emigra-
tion had left the country ex-
tremely poor.
Mother grew up in a typical
Irish cottage. Its stone walls were
whitewashed inside and out.

Katherine Kenny was born Feb. 22,
1891, in Ireland.

The floor was stone and the roof
was thatched. A peat-burning
fireplace was used for cooking
and heating. There was no inside
plumbing. Food consisted of po-
tatoes and cabbage, with some
pork or lamb and milk from the
family cow. Clothing was made of
plain homespun wool or linen.
Mother spoke of walking


along the fences of neighboring
farms to gather clods of wool
caught on the barbed wire. Her
grandmother would spin that
wool into yarn for mittens.
Mother's uncle, Peter McGar-
ry, and his two sisters, none mar-
ried, had emigrated years earlier
to the United States. Peter served
several terms as a NewYork sen-
ator. When Katherine was 17,
Peter and his sisters said it was
time for her to join them in
America. She did and never saw
her mother again.
In New York, she worked as a
maid, governess and cook for
wealthy people until her mar-
riage to Frank Drab when she
was 30. She could make Irish,
Bohemian and Jewish dishes,
was quick at making Irish soda
bread and could bake a loaf
while greeting visitors who had
stopped in for tea.
Mother had little formal edu-
cation yet she excelled in basic
math. Her writing was beautiful
and her spelling excellent.

My mom, Belle McLeod-
Wiyson, was a super woman.
Writing about her accom-
plishments seems more like
writing a fairy tale; hard to

friend, mentor, teacher, cook
and cleaning lady. She had no

ator, no dishwasher, no washer

She's loving and sweet
She's always happy
Plus she's organized and neat

Monday and ironed every
Tuesday. I still smile remember-
ing dad's frozen underwear
hanging on the clothesline. It
might be zero outside but moth-
er trudged through the snow
and hung her laundry outside.
She baked cakes from scratch
managing to keep the oven in
her wood stove at an even tem-
perature. We had to be quiet
while cakes baked so they
wouldn't fall. If they did, extra
frosting hid the problem.
We had breakfast, dinner at


noon and supper. There was
always plenty, but you ate every-
thing on your plate. If unexpect-
ed company showed up, mom
and dad had a saying, "You can
always add a few potatoes to the
pot."
Mother sang lovely old songs
as she worked.
A pot of green tea was always
ready on the kitchen stove.
Aunt Lottie appeared almost
every afternoon.

Mother's Day Poem
My mom is so sweet
She keeps me cool in the dire heat
She makes me happy when I am sad
She forgives me when I have been bad,
My mom is always there for me when I have a problem
I will never let her down,
Because she doesn't ever let me down,
And she never will.

FROM LIFE LINE
SCREENING

Residents living in and
around the Venice com-
munity can be screened
to reduce their risk of
having a stroke. Life Line
Screening will be at the
Venice Area Board of
Realtors Friday, May 16.
The site is located at 680
Substation Road. Ap-
pointments will begin at
9 a.m.
A stroke, also known as
a "brain attack," is ranked
as the third leading killer
in the world, and the
second among women.
Through preventive screen-
ings, the risk of having a
stroke can be greatly
reduced.
Screenings are fast,
painless and low cost.
They involve the use of
ultrasound technology,
and scan for potential
health problems related
to: blocked arteries
which can lead to a
stroke, aortic aneurysms
which can lead to a rup-
tured aorta, and harden-
ing of the arteries in the
legs, which are a strong
predictor of heart dis-
ease. Also offered for
men and women, is a
bone density screening


to assess their risk for
osteoporosis.
Each screening re-
quires ten minutes or less
to complete. A complete
vascular screening pack-
age, including the Stroke/
Carotid Artery, Abdom-
inal Aortic Aneurysm and
Ankle Brachial Index
(hardening of the arter-
ies) screenings is $119.
Sign up for a complete
vascular package; include
the osteoporosis screen-
ing and pay only $129.
Life Line Screening
was established in 1993,
and has since become the
nation's leading provider


of vascular screenings.
Over 60 ultrasound teams
are on staff to travel to
your local community,
bringing the screenings
to you. These non-inva-
sive, inexpensive and
painless, ultrasound tests
help people identify their
risk for stroke, vascular
diseases or osteoporosis
early enough for their
physician to begin pre-
ventive procedures.
For more information
regarding the screenings
or to schedule an
appointment, call (800)
324-1851. Registration is
required.

FINE WHINES


Out of your tree


BY ZIPPY THE CHIMP
GUEST WRITER

First of all, I'll deal with
the obvious question: Yes,
we chimps can read, write
and speak English. This
isn't one of those 100 mon-
keys at 100 typewriters
pounding out Shakespeare
(though that is sort of how
"his" plays were written ...
but I digress).
The subject today is the
theory of evolution, which
is losing its favored status
in the schools of a growing
number of states. It's a
trend we applaud whole-
heartedly.
Now, don't get me
wrong. We chimps believe
firmly in evolution. It's a
"theory" just like it's a the-
ory that the Earth revolves
around the sun, or that the
Detroit Tigers need more
pitching. These are facts;
go back and watch that
fine documentary, "The
Planet of the Apes," if you
don't want to take my word
for it.
No, the problem we
have with evolution is the


common misperception
that Darwin said mankind
(meaning humans of both
sexes; I don't need any
more grief from my wife
about being sexist) de-
scended from apes. He
didn't.
You, intelligent reader,
know that Darwin theo-
rized that humans and
apes have a common an-
cestor. That specific crea-
ture has not yet been iden-
tified, though my guess is
it strongly resembled an
NFL lineman (a little more
sports humor there).
Does it make a differ-
ence? Absolutely.
You see, if humans de-
scended from apes, then
the way humans behave is
attributable, at least in
part, to their ape ancestry.
Frankly, we don't intend to
take the rap for wars,
crime, the divorce rate,

nuclear proliferation or
the last episode of "The
Sopranos."
If mankind is a higher
form of life than we are,
explain smoking. Or pollu-
tion. Or Adam Sandler.
No, Darwin clearly had
it right when he posited a
common ancestor for man
and apes. We went our
separate ways after that,
reaching our present sta-
tus, with my kind living
reasonably quiet and
peaceful, albeit primitive,
lives, and you, ironically,
living lives that are in-
creasingly solitary, poor,
nasty and brutish, if not
short.
The only way we came
out on the short end of the
stick, genetically speaking,
is that opposable thumb
thing, but we have our sci-
entists working on that.
Oops, I've said too much.

blessed with the birth of
my first son.
We named him
Shaun, which suited the
red hair he had, after his
mother.
Within 24 hours he
underwent a heart cather-
ization, due to the fact that
he was turning blue.
It was determined that
he was born with a con-
genital heart defect,
"transposition of the great
vessels" and would require
open heart surgery within
a year to save his life.
At 7 months he was
turning blue and we knew
he would not last forever
and somewhere down the


line he would require a
heart transplant.
After tests all his life
at All Childrens in De-
troit and then at All
Children in St. Peters-
burg, (and thank you for
their wonderful care),
we lost him on May 9,
2001, two days before
his 24th birthday.
I am writing this for
Mother's Day, because, on
this Mother's Day, May 11,
2008, he would be turning
31.
Shaun was blessed with
the ability to write poetry,
and this one poem he
wrote I would like to share
with all mothers, for he
wrote it for me on Moth-
er's Day 1998.

A day dedicated to


Mothers is just not fair!
Because not a day goes
by they do not care!
So devoting just one day
out of the year to them
just doesn't seem
right!
After all, they gave us
life!
And if they only cared
but one day a year,
I don't think any of us
would be here.
So maybe we shouldn't
have just one day, but
instead,
Appreciate them every
day as they do us.
If it weren't for their
patience and understand-
ing,
we would not be
standing.
So when you see your
mom, give hera hug!


No matter what day it
is,
and, tell heryou love her.
Because, that's the great-
est gift anyone can receive.
Thanks for everything
Mom.
We love you!
Shaun and Joey
too
By Shaun Sudnik
(1977-2001)

Shaun was an inspira-
tion to his friends, for he
continuously kept a sense
of humor and had an
incredible attitude, even
though his life was quite
different than many of his
friends.
Most of all, he influ-
enced his younger brother
Joey. (They were best
friends.)


Joey is now 24. Shaun's
ability to smile and make
the best of every situation
will live in the lives of oth-
ers forever.
How fortunate we were
to have him in our lives for
24 years, such a very beau-
tiful person.
His death was due to an
infection in the heart, so
we did not get to the trans-
plant, but I am sure he is
looking down from above
and sharing his love in a
very special way, we can-
not see, but will feel forev-
er in our hearts.
A very bittersweet
mother but a very lucky
one for Shaun was beauti-
ful, and Joey looks after me
like any loving son would
do who thinks the world of
his mother.

A poem for my mother, Ella Duthie


Brunch at the Ritz Carlton


BY GEORGE DUTHIE
GUEST WRITER

I wrote this when I was
17 years old, and I wrote it
for my mother. Much later,
when she was 88 and in
poor health, my sister
Margaret and I arranged a
dinner party for our moth-
er, together with our rela-
tives and my mother's
friends. After the meal she
blew out the candles and I
read this poem.

A Million Tons
He had a million tons, sire:
a million golden tons
Each little grain was pre-
cious, even tiny shiny ones
He had a million tons, sir,
of pure and burnished gold
It was his gift to us, sir; for
all the world to hold
He shut some up in moun-
tains, He spread some on
the land
And as he worked it glis-
tened, like stardust in His
hand
He sprinkled it in rivers, hid
some deep in the ground
Left some in open places,
where it would soon be
found.
He spread it in the desert,
left much beneath the sea,
There's some in every gar-


Mum
My mum so spectacular
Being so kind and car-

You love me

den and under every tree
He caused the cliffs to hide
it, the hills to hold fast
He had quite job to do, sir,
but he finished it at last
He spread that million tons
sir, on lake and sea and land,
'Til none of it remained
save for a handful in his
hand
He fashioned this with care;

"Do you have time for a
game?" she would ask.
That meant mother had
to round up two neighbors
and take time out for a
game of "500." Somehow
mother always found time
for Aunt Lottie's card game.
Mother ironed on Tues-
day by heating plates on


with pure gold he made a
start
He shaped it with his
hands of love, and made a
mother's heart.

the accordion. We learned
all the good Irish songs.
Dad also could play the
accordion, but we had
only one instrument so he
would usually sing or play
harmonica several eve-
nings when we spent time
enjoying our music.
Mother was domineer-
ing and always got her
way. She could turn on the
brogue and get anything
she wanted, including
having the town cops park
her car in a difficult place.
Her Irish background
was important to her, and


I could say she was even
biased against other na-
tionalities. My father, Bo-
hemian not Irish, had to
be very handsome and
charming to sweep this
lovely lady off her feet.
Most family friends were
Irish and we went to Irish
dances and other gatherings.
That domineering Irish
mother of mine did every-
thing she could to pro-
mote a relationship I had
with a girl from Ireland
but, when Anna Mae
dumped me and I became
involved with a non-Irish


girl, my mother inter-
vened to break it up.
Finally, at 25, I finished
college and moved to a job
100 miles from home where
I could make my own
choices. Luckily my mother
approved of the girl I found
in Westchester County.
My mother was strict,
never sparing the rod. Her
favorite tool was a wet dish
rag. She made sure I stud-
ied hard, loved God, fol-
lowed His precepts, hon-
ored my parents, respect-
ed my elders and kept my
language clean (laundry


soap in the moth was a
good deterrent). Even in
the service, I could not use
words so prevalent there.
Katherine Kenny lived to
be 104 and one half, surviv-
ing my father by 40 years.
She lived alone in a second
floor walkup in Miami
Shores until she was 102.
Five days a week, the bus
picked her up to take her to
the senior center for lunch
and bingo.
I'm proud of my moth-
er. Her precepts and
teachings remain with me
to this day.

The Venice Nokomis
Elks Lodge on Knights Trail
held Passport to Water
Safety for 120 Girl Scouts
last Saturday. The 4-hour
program was organized by
Girl Scout Troop 169 and
Venice U.S. Coast Guard
Auxiliary Flotilla 86. Eleven
stations held rotating ses-
sions throughout the
morning to demonstrate
everything from person
overboard safety proce-
dures to knot tying. Also
participating were Deputy
Chief Kevin Deiter, Sarasota


County Marine Patrol and
Phil Phillips, Marine/Parks
Patrol, City of Venice Police
Department, sharing their
range of expertise from per-
sonal flotation devices to
manatees.
"They are vegetarians,"
said Carly Pike when
Dieter asked what anyone
knew about manatees.
Deiter said manatees and
dolphins bite and warned
not to pet or feed them.
Toni Borman, a lifetime
Girl Scout and volunteer/
teacher, spoke about the
importance of keeping
plastics from going into
the waterways and oceans.
Borman volunteers much
of her time at Mote Marine
and brought a DVD about
a whale that had beached
itself. The whale was airlift-
ed to the Baltimore
Aquarium with chances of
survival not good.
Inky, so named because
she extrudes an ink sub-
stance to make her invisi-
ble, was not gaining weight


and her muscles would not
allow her to swim actively.
During an endoscopy,
pieces of a green trash bag,
a Mylar balloon and other
plastics were found in her
stomach. Once removed,
Inky began gaining weight
and after six months of
rehabilitation, she was
released into the Gulf
Stream off the east coast of
Florida. She was tracked
for four days and adjusted
well. Borman said many
marine animals are not so
fortunate. Rains carry
much of the plastics and
litter out to the water
through storm drains and
once in the water, plastic
items look like squid or
other food to marine ani-
mals.
Keeping It Clean
The National Great
American Clean-up is held
during April. Keep Sarasota
County Beautiful sponsors
a day for this clean-up at
various sites around the


county. Lynn Crossfield,
AmiCorp/Oscar Scherer
State Park, organized a
clean-up at the park.
"Too clean, was a com-
plaint," said Crossfield,
obviously pleased about
the comments made by
many of the 99 volunteers
that came out last year to
clean the park.
Crossfield is also an
artist and is collecting
items she finds while work-
ing at the park. She has
saved fishing line, a whistle,
rubber frog, marbles, etc.,
which she plans to incor-
porate into a still life paint-
ing, demonstrating types of
litter left at the park.
"Too clean" is a great
tribute to Oscar Scherer
State Park, but is not
echoed throughout the
county. Last year the
cleanup sponsored by
KSCB had more than 1,000
volunteers and collected
32,000 pounds of trash -
evidence that "Every Litter
Bit Hurts."

ed the Great American Clean-
up sponsored by Keep

Rachel Borock, left, Erika Soller and Fiona

ing many things such as buoys and day markers because there are no
white lines on the water.
