County trying to cushion layoffs

It's a tough time to be a

With the county prop-
erty appraiser's office pre-
dicting a $39 million short-
fall in 2009 property tax
revenue, cuts in service
are expected soon. Those
cuts will no doubt lead to
more layoffs of county
staff as soon as mid-
August, according to County
Administrator Jim Ley.
The county recently ini-
tiated a program designed
to help workers expand
capabilities in their cur-
rent jobs and offer oppor-
tunities to explore other
Deputy County Admin-
istrator David Bullock
defended the program
against claims the county
is sending a "shape up or
ship out" message.
"The most valuable em-
ployees are those who can
do a variety of things well,"
Bullock said. "The more
skills you have, the more
employability you have."
Bullock said employees
with less flexibility in their
skill set may benefit by
seeking opportunities in
other careers. He pointed
to a collection of resources
and tools on an internal
county Web site avail-
able to employees to help
maximize their potential,
both inside and outside
The site provides infor-
mation on classes, work-
shops, audio CDs and Web
sites dedicated to such
topics as managing change,

"Over the last five years,
any person with even a tiny
amount of management
experience knew we were
in an unsustainable growth
curve," Bullock said.
"Any idiot can manage
when money is rolling
over the transom. So while
it is, you must take some
time to manage for the
times when it isn't. That's
what we've been doing."

School district plans still more budget cuts
BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
A few weeks ago, Sarasota
County School Board made
drastic cuts to the district's pre-
liminary operating budget a
total of $32 million in personnel
and services for the year.
Turns out, it's probably not
going to be enough.
The district's cuts were done
based on the falling economy
and predictions of a $15 million
cut from the state due to a hefty
anticipated revenue shortfall.
No one knew what the figure
would really be until the release
of 2008 property tax valuations.
On Monday, Sarasota County
Tax Appraiser Jim Todora
released the bad news: county
tax valuations dropped by 17
percent. Estimated taxable val-
ues compared to those certified
last October showed the school
board down 12.7 percent, to
$54.7 billion from $62.7 billion.
Al Weidner, deputy chief
financial officer for the school
district, said the district's prelim-
inary budget for the 2008-09
school year estimated spending
would be down $10 million.
"But it could be down $16
million, based on the tax roll
received," he said.
When the district made its cuts
and formulated its preliminary
2008-09 budget, it based it on a
decrease of about 1.2 percent,
according to information it had at
the time. But being down 12.7
percent is a huge difference from
the 1.2 percent, and would put
the district in a position where it
may have to make more cuts and
shore up its finances further.
"On July 1, he (Todora) certi-
fies to the Department of
Revenue that this is the tax roll
and it is used to compute our
millage rate. We advertise that at
our tentative budget meeting
July 22," Weidner said.
He said the public hearing
will be Aug. 5 and final approval
of the budget will be Sept. 16.
In a vacuum
Schools Superintendent Lori
White said during a budget
workshop Tuesday it would be
difficult for the district to look at
more staffing changes now, but
there are things on lists that do
not involve staff for example,
whether to charge athletic fees.
The district considered
staffing changes before the end
of the school year so principals
could make their plans for next
year and staff would know if they
had a job next year.
"During the school year, the
staff will look at ways to cut
expenses, whether transporta-
tion or whatever. They'll do it
right away rather than leaving
until budget talks begin in
January," White said.
Kathy Kleinlein, board chair,
said they need to work with the
"These are not the best of
time. We need to know what
they think. Otherwise, we're all
in a vacuum," she said.
White said administration
has started working with them
and they formed two additional
committees, one to look at sup-
plements (coaches) and health
"It is a time-consuming pro-
cess and results will probably not
be achieved by the beginning of
the school year," White said.
Gary Leatherman, communi-
cations director for the school dis-
trict, said it is too soon to know
exactly how much money the dis-
trict may need for its final budget.
"We are waiting to find out for
sure what happens at the state
level if there will be a change in
the required amount at the local
level," he said.
This may not occur until the
Legislature is back in session
If there is an increase in the
local effort, the dollar amount
people pay would stay the same
even if their value goes down. This
is an option the state may use in
order to protect school districts, as
was stated when it supported the
additional homestead exemption
voters approved in January.
"Normally, if the value of prop-
erty goes down taxes are reduced
proportionally," Leatherman said.
"The state may use the option of
the value going down but taxes
paid staying the same in order to
hold the school budget at the
level it was reduced to.
"The big questions are when
the determination will be made
and who has the authority to do
it," Leatherman said.

the Best Buy 400 was an exer-
cise in futility. The trio of
Roush Fenway drivers who
chased him across the finish
line at a considerable dis-
tance left the mile track
embittered and discouraged.
To Busch's great credit, he has
neverjumbled his mastery of
the generic cars with any delu-
sions that they are fun to
drive. But when, after winning
his fourth race of the season,
Busch repeatedly declared
that runner-up Carl Edwards
and Greg Blffle had better
cars, he might as well have
been rubbing salt in the Ford
drivers' wounds. Edwards was
the only driver to make a legiti-
mate, full-speed pass for the
lead all day. Both times it was
Blffle he passed. The Roush
Fenway armada captured posi-
tions two, three and four (Matt
Kenseth). Busch, 23, won by
4.224 seconds. That didn't ap-
pear likely to happen until the
final pits tops, which, as
Busch said, were the only oc-
currences that really mattered.

GOP committee candidate blasts local party
BY ED SCOTT
Asked to introduce herself
during a recent candidate forum
in North Port, Cynthia Crowe of
Venice, a candidate for Sarasota
County Republican state com-
mitteewoman, spoke out about
how she sees the state of the
Crowe, who moved to Venice
from New York in 1977, said she
was a Republican committee-
woman in 1992 "when our party
ran much like a well-oiled
machine. What became of this
machine is beyond me. We now
resemble a rudderless ship drift-
ing in all directions and getting
Crowe said some 20,000
Sarasota County Republicans
switched to other parties during
the past five years.
"Sarasota had 60 percent reg-
istered Republicans," she said.
"We're now down to 45 (percent)
registered Republicans. The
Democrats are up 31 percent
and they are closing the gap.
"In 31 years I have never seen
this big push by the Democrats."
Eric Robinson, chair of the
Republican Party of Sarasota
County, rejects Crowe's claims.
"Our percentages have gone
down, but you have to look at
the reasons why," he said. "Our
state passed a motor voter legis-
lation which changed how peo-
ple register to vote. We were at
52-53 percent. Now we are at 47
(actually 46.1). The motor voter
registrants are historically inde-
pendent voters. They have a his-
tory of low turnout."
Robinson said Democrats are
"roughly the same. They are in
the low 30s (32.2); just look at the
Crowe said the November
2007 election, in which two
incumbent Venice city council
members and the sitting mayor
lost, "should be a wake-up call."
Venice mayoral and city
council elections are legally
nonpartisan, but "our party
chairman (Robinson) was
involved with that race and all
three Republicans lost to three
Democrats," Crowe said. "I call
this an absence of leadership."
Robinson said he hears criti-
cism from some over being too
involved in the Venice election,
as well as criticism for not being
"This is almost laughable
because the Democrats did
more in the city of Venice than
we did, but your sister newspa-
per (the Gondolier Sun) chas-
tised me for getting involved in a
nonpartisan race. I doubt a
chairman has ever done that
much in North Port or Sarasota."
The Republican state commit-
tee woman serves as a liaison
between the state party and the
localparty. Therace willbecontest-
ed on theAug. 26 primaryballot.
Dressed in red, white and
blue, three-term incumbent
Republican state committee
woman Katie Bolon, of Sarasota,
a past or current president of
three area Republican Party
clubs, told the audience what
each letter in the word
"Republican" means to her.
"R stands for responsibility
and respect for our flag," the
Wisconsin native started her
Crowe called Bolon "a very
good mascot for the Republican
Party. But I think at this time we
need more than a mascot. We
need somebodywho is willing to
go out and work."
"They hate each other so she
(Crowe) is just mudslinging,"
Robinson said. "She's basically a
troublemaker. I don't consider
her a Republican Partyoperative; I
considerhera disgruntled person."

just north of Dearborn Street in
Englewood, the haven offers a
cage-free loving home to res-
cued cats and kittens in need of
Puffy Paws founders Rick
and Chrissy Kingston literally
opened their home to their
feline friends. For three squares
and the run of a 2,000-square-
foot home, nearly all the felines
return the favor by using their
litter boxes and otherwise
behaving like perfect, if rather
small, house guests.
The exception is one of the
11 feral cats living among the
100 or so cats that have the run
of the main house.
"I got bit to the bone," Puffy
Paws founder Chrissy said. "I
had to go to the emergency
room. No one wants them."
Whether the Kingstons want
them or not, they keep them
because they are running a no-
kill shelter, somehow managing

to find homes for as many cats
as they can, including older
otherwise unadoptable felines
- all except the feral cats.
When I visited Chrissy a
week ago, she was placing a kit-
ten with a little girl and her
mother from North Port.
"Kittens have to be 3 weeks
old or 3 pounds," Chrissy said.
"The $72 fee covers spaying or
neutering and all the other vet-
erinary fees for the kittens."
The North Port family took
their new kitten to the vet this
past Thursday for its neutering
The black kitten with white
paws was slightly larger than its
new owner's first choice. The
first choice was too young and
small. It will be ready soon,
however, and by then, another
little girl may be intrigued by
the four white paws on an oth-
erwise black cat, just as 5-year-
old Brea Raposa was last Satur-

said. "We've adopted a lot out
The adopted kitten was one
of about 30 living in what used
to be the family garage. While
the older cats have the run of
the house, which has absolutely
no trace of cat odor, the kittens
live in an equally clean environ-
ment in the garage. The very
young ones are caged at night,
but on soft, freshly washed
blankets or cozy rugs. Most are
using a litter box by the time
they are only about 4 weeks old.
"We use 1,200 pounds of lit-
ter a week," Chrissy said. "This
is a full-time job. We change the
boxes every day and scoop all
Most cats are meticulous, she
To help them stay so clean,
Chrissy also does two loads of
wash each day so the cats and
kittens always have clean soft
blankets or towels on which to
curl up for naps.
"People don't know how to
clean," she said. "You have to
scoop and you have to move
the boxes and clean underneath
them with bleach and water."
She said she was a house
cleaner for many years and the
proof seems to be her own
house, which she shares with
her husband and all those cats.
The result is a clean house
and happy cats, most of whom
are super friendly. When I was
there a tiger seemed to like me

went, pushing his way in if

said to me, "He does that with
In addition to the friendly
tiger cat, the Kingstons also
have two cats that are part lynx,

mese cats, a tiny orange Manx
kitten and a calico or three. If

tain color or breed, it is likely to

One of her older cats is

Chrissy said she works
with St. Vincent Animal

flow whenever they have
room. Puffy Paws became
an official shelter in 2006.
In their transformation
to becoming a bonified
cat shelter, the couple has
had help from Snyder and

They feel defenseless so
they freeze or scream
because they are terrified.
It is not normal and the

All the cats seem to get
along fine under their
common roof. Any that
are sick are quarantined
and the only ones in cages
are the kittens, Rick said.
Rick's next project is a
TV show on BLAB TV to
promote the shelter and
to educate people about
cats and their care.
Meanwhile, the couple
is caring for as many cats
as they can. When their
shelter is filled and they
have no more room, they
will post pictures of the
extra cats on their Web

local restaurant. Your server takes
your credit card and returns to tell
you that your card has been declined.
Later, you discover the account has
charges totaling more than $800 that
you did not make.
A recent case highlights the
potential for credit card fraud when
you don't witness a transaction. San
Francisco police arrested a waitress
for unauthorized use of a credit card
after having received several similar
reports of credit card fraud at a Bay
All the victims remembered
using their credit card at the same
restaurant and identified the wait-
ress as their server. The waitress
told authorities she had sold the
card numbers to a friend for $40. A
total of $17,500 was charged on
the cards to pay for electronics,
clothing, cell phones and utility
Credit card fraud is on the rise
and costs issuers hundreds of mil-
lions of dollars each year. Credit card
customers are often not held
responsible for fraudulent charges,
as long as they report the fraud in a
The convenience of using a cred-
it card to pay for a meal at a restau-
rant, for example, belies the risk for
credit card fraud, said Kathy Li,
director, Consumer Action in San
Francisco. The restaurant industry
is plagued with the highest inci-
dence of credit card skimming, the
unscrupulous practice of swiping a
customer's credit card through a
device, similar in size to a beeper, to
record the magnetic strip data for
the creation of fraudulent credit
Consumers are urged to watch
closely as store and restaurant
employees handle their credit card
to make sure they are not copying or
"skimming" the credit card number.
The information that is obtained
can be used to order products and
services online for several weeks
until the unsuspecting victim is
made aware via his or her monthly
credit card statement, which can
give the thieves plenty of time to run
Thieves may sell your informa-
tion. Often, the criminals skimming
your information into the device are
not the same criminals that are
using that information to commit
identity theft or other crimes of
The card information can be
encoded onto new white plastic
counterfeit cards. The card can then
be swiped at ATMs or at a merchant
If fraud strikes, you should act
right away by calling the card issuer
to report the card as being lost or
stolen. Follow up the phone call
with a letter to your issuer, which
should include the card number,
and the date you reported it lost or
stolen, because once the loss of the
card is reported, the consumer is
not responsible for unauthorized
"Even if a consumer is late in
reporting the loss, or was not aware
of the unauthorized use until their
next statement arrives, their liability
is limited to $50 per card by federal
law, although many issuers have $0
liability policies," explained Li.
"However, it must be reported in a
timely manner to avoid losing pro-
tections under the law if there's neg-
ligent failure to report the loss of the

Jewish Center holds themed service
FROM THE JEWISH
CENTER OF VENICE
The Jewish Center of Venice
refers to itself as "a place of
Jewish belonging" and claims
to embrace Jewish diversity. It
lived up to those promises on
May 16 when it held its first
themed Shabbat service, the
music of Gesher. Marci Vitkus,
Cantor of the JCV, rearranged
the cantorial portion of the ser-
vice to incorporate the modern
melodies of the musical group
Gesher. Gesher is a Hebrew
word meaning "bridge" and
when Vitkus first heard the
music of Gesher she says that
she felt instantly inspired and
realized that Gesher was
indeed a "bridge" that linked
her spirituality with her love of
Vitkus engaged the help of
Dr. Bruce Harrow (vocalist and
guitarist), Jason Arkin (percus-
sion), and the JCV choir to pre-
sent a program of uplifting and
modern interpretations of
ancient prayers. This service
was a one-time event as the JCV
continues to embrace new
ideas while respecting the
older, more traditional aspects
Gesher is a musical group
with Michael Hunter Ochs and
Daniel Leanse. Ochs is an
accomplished pianist and gui-
tarist and is the composer in res-
idence at Congregation Micah in
Nashville, Tenn. His list of
accomplishments is quite

impressive. He has written
music for star vocalists as well as
for movies and TV
Leanse arrived in Nashville in
1996 to pursue a career as a
songwriter. In 1998, Leanse's
path took a sharp turn when he
landed the job as cantorial
soloist at Congregation Micah in
Brentwood, Tenn. He is the
Cantor at Congregation Beth Am
in Paolo Alto, Calif.

trip you neverknow
what you might catch
For example, a couple of
weeks ago I caught an
unusual fish near the
mouth ofthe Myakka
River hatwas a first for
me I'd found an area
where there werebig
schools of threadfins
milling about, so I
anchored andhung a
chum block overboard
in hopes ofattracting a

sharks were slow in
coming butwe were
able to staybusy
mackerel while we
waited for the sharks to
show Afterhalf an hour
orso one of the shark
lines jumped, then
slowly took off After a
bnef struggle Ihad a
40 inches lying exhaust
edatboatside When we
were able to get a good
look at the animal, we
noticed it was almost jet
black in color The black
coloration included not
only the back and sides
of the fish, but also the
belly and all the fins A
caught another long
nose garof almostthe
same size as the first
(black) fish, but the
secondwas a normally
colored fish Photos of
the two fish are shown

Ask Capt Ralph
I read your article e n he Waterne issue dated 529/08
aboutthe use of circle hooks in the Gulf of Meico waters
Your statement "Catch and release anglers are not
fish species, does not make sense I then read the Florida
regulations on onthe Web se you provided It state 'The
intent of the new rules is to help conserve fishery
releasing fish that are not going to be harvested due to
regulations orfor other reasons"
Capt Ralph responds

than it ever has. Moving
from one location to the
next to search for fish
has proved helpful,
although many miles
need to be covered to
locate a small pod of
fish. Not typically a
technique that I have
mastered fishing in
I know quite a few of
the "regulars" who fish
the Kissimmee Chain of
Lakes. Even by most of
these older veteran
anglers' standards, the
fishing for quality bass
has been slow. The
success these gentlemen
have had has come by
moving and covering
large areas of shoreline.
Just make sure that
before you head out on
this type of fish finding
mission, you fill your
tanks up with gas before
you get rolling. It could
take some time on the
water to locate a trophy
My best advice to all
my fellow bass anglers is
to be patient. Sooner or
later we will get some
stability back in our
lakes and all will be well.
After all, we are the big
bass capital of the world,
and no one has the size
bass that we do. Well,
maybe California does,
but their big lake has
been shut down. So fish
on and keep hunting for
those lunkers. They are
there; we just need to

spots at all. These
redfish are genetic
variations from the
normal pattern of a
fish and other animals,
such as albinos and
melanistic animals, are
fairly scarce in nature.
The reason for this is
that the normal
coloration of most
animals has evolved to
give the animals a
in their natural envi-
on whether the animal
in question is more
likely to be a predator
or a prey species, the
either aids the creature
in avoiding detection
or to be better able to
sneak up on other
colored animals tend
to stand out in the
and are often unable to
survive for very long.
June 5, 2008
The melanistic long
nose gar shown here
was a healthy adult
that was probably not
overly handicapped by
it's unusually dark
color, especially while
living in the dark
colored water found in
Southwest Florida. Had
the gar been an albino,
it would probably have
been less likely to
survive to adult size
and I would have been
forced to come up with
a different topic for a
column this week.

is on for the next Idol. The
Players Theatre in
Sarasota is sponsoring its annu-
al Talent Search this summer
leading up to the Grand Finale
Show atthe theater, 838 North
Tamiami Trail onAug 23.
If you sing, dance or act and
want to be part of the action, get
your application in now, and
certainly no later than June 13.
Auditions will be July 12,19
or 26 at The Players Performing
Arts Studio, 500 Tallevast Road,
Prizes include studio scholar-
Sarasota had one finalist on
'American Idol." This event
could uncover another future
Applications are available
online at www.theplayers.org or
at the theater's box office, 838
North Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.
There is a $25 application fee
and just one week to go.
Once the application is in
you can start polishing up your
audition piece. I called Jeffery
Kin, artistic director at The
Players for some guidelines-
not for me for you!
"No more than three min-
utes," he said.
Having watched his one-play
play festival last summer, I
totally understood. Less is
more and you can showcase
one heck of a lot of talent in
three minutes or less or
prove the opposite in four.
Consider that we live in the
sound-bite generation. So get
your act together and have fun.
Tickets to the Aug 23 show
are $12 per person for adults
and $8 for students under 18.
The judges are Murray Chase,

* Kidstar Park has rides and attractions right in town *
By TEDDI THOSATH
The sound of the go-carts
can be heard while climbing
the rock wall or taking a
whirl on the ferris wheel.
The zooming sound dissi-
pates as you walk inside to
play Laser Tag or are caught up
playing black light mini-golf.
It's not a fair or in an amuse-
ment park up north but
Kidstar Park, just around the
corner from the Port Charlotte
Town Center mall.
"It's family entertainment
fun," Marge Farris, the office
manager of Kidstar said. "It's
the only amusement area
around that's close by."
Kidstar was started by Dr.
Kenneth Levy and his wife
Brenda, and his brother
Robert. The family started the
park when their three children
were young, after realizing they
had to travel out of the county
to find a place like Kidstar.
The park includes both
indoor and outdoor
JJ's Arcade & Blacklight Pool
is located indoors and includes
44 arcade games including
Dance Dance Revolution
and In The Groove 2.
Storm Mountain is a four-
story indoor soft play area.
The outdoor park includes,
"Space Sled," where park-goers
will get dizzy, a large rock
climbing wall, a small roller
coaster known as the "Dragon
Wagon," the "Christmas Tree"
(a quick-drop ride), a ferris
wheel, the airplane ride, the
balloon ride, Sunslide and the
The Kidstar Soft Serve Ice
Cream stand is located outside
near the rides with ice cream
treats, snacks and drinks. Stars
Bistro inside offers Chicago
deep-dish pizza and gelato.
There are an additional five
featured attractions -Laser
Tag, 3-D Motion Ride, Liquid
What: KidStar, which features an indoor
44-game arcade and four-story play
area, an outside amusement center,
and frie main attractions LaserTag, a

During June and July,
Winter Park's Morse Museum
is offering two free programs
for elementary students.
The special programs are
based on the museum's sum-

- Louis Comfort Tiffany's
Life and Art." While children

The family programs are
being offered on Tuesdays
and select Fridays during
those two months. The
Tuesday program features a
45-minute guided tour of the
"Quest of beauty" show and
a chance to visit all the gal-
leries. When they head
home, they will take along a
home-art project related to
what they see in the show.
On Friday June 13 and 27
and July 11 and 25, program
participants will watch a
short film, visit the exhibi-
tion and other galleries and
create a work of art which
they can talk home.
"It is all free," museum
Hinman said. "Last year the
kids got a kit to make a book.
This year they will get a box
