Council wants board resignations


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


Council sets higher


working tax rate


The Venice Airport Advisory
Board is still in existence, but
some of its members may have
attended their last meeting.
Several council members
have expressed exasperation at
the board, which they say has
shirked its duty by failing to fol-
low directions to re-review the
MEA Group's proposed Airport
Master Plan Update and Airport
Layout Plan. It also offered no
advice regarding the recently
published request for qualifica-
tions seeking bids from prospec-
tive new consultants, they say.
"I don't feel like I've gotten my
money's worth in terms of
advice," said Vice Mayor John
Moore, one of three members of
an ad hoc committee that rec-
ommended reconstituting the
board in 2005 because it was
dysfunctional.
He also said the board had
polarized the city over the air-
port and called e-mails between
board members using derogato-
ry terms to refer to the airport's
neighbors "childish and irre-
sponsible."
He stopped short of calling
for the board's abolition, though,
recommending it be put on
"probation."
"I would like to suggest that
everybody grow up around here
and listen to council," he said,
"and if you're on that board and
you don't feel you can do that,
resign."
Council Member Ernie
Zavodnyik also was willing to
grant the board a brief reprieve,
although he said he put the item
on council's agenda with the


Widening of at least a part of
the Venice Bypass took a small
step forward Tuesday.
Venice City Council voted
unanimously to ask the Saraso-
ta-Manatee Metropolitan Plan-
ning Organization to recom-
mend to the state a plan to
widen the bypass to six lanes
from Albee Farm Road south to
Gulf Coast Boulevard, including
the East Venice Avenue/U.S. 41
Bypass intersection.
The plan was one of four pre-
sented by Florida Department of
Transportation engineer Chris
Piazza and Jeff Trim of Wade-
Trim, the outside engineers on
the project, to try to get the
stalled project moving.
Expanding the bypass was
first studied in the early '90s,
according to MPO Executive Di-
rector Michael Howe. It has been
no lower on the agency's priority
list than No. 2 since 1994 it's
currently No. 1 but the price
tag has grown as the years
passed, from $10 million-$13
million at the outset to more
than $100 million to take it all to
six lanes today.
That led to the suggestion
that the project be done in sec-
tions, an idea the MPO adopted.
"My recommendation to you
today is to break this project
apart," Howe said. "In a lump
sum it's undoable."
Particularly, he said, for an
agency that only has about $12
million-$15 million a year to
spend.
Other choices
The plan council endorsed
wasn't the cheapest, though.

intent to have the board abol-
ished.
"For me the time frame is
short," he said the board
members either needed to get a
change of attitude or resign.
Council Member Sue Lang,
who sent mayor Ed Martin an e-
mail in December regarding dis-
banding and replacing the
board, made the motion to do
just that.
"I feel very strongly it's too
late to salvage this board," she
said.
When her motion died for
lack of a second, Zavodnyik
moved to give the board mem-
bers until Aug. 26 to get in line or
resign. That motion failed, with
Moore, Rick Tacy, John Sim-

A plan endorsed by Venice City Council Tuesday would widen U.S. 41
Bypass in three segments: from Albee Farm Road, shown above, south to
Gulf Coast Boulevard, and later from Bird Bay to Albee Farm Road and
from Gulf Coast Boulevard to Center Road.


Option 1 would have widen-
ed the bypass from its current
six-lane terminus at Bird Bay,
transitioning back to four lanes
at Gulf Coast Boulevard. Cost:
$49.8 million, including $30 mil-
lion for right-of-way acquisition.
Options 3 and 4 were varia-
tions on a theme, widening the
bypass from Albee Farm Road to
Pineland Avenue, one block
north of Gulf Coast Boulevard.
The difference in cost $35
million versus $28.5 million is
because Option 4 involves tak-
ing the minimum amount of
right of way needed in the area


where it's most expensive -
south of East Venice Avenue.
"Basically, we're just building
the intersection and transition-
ing back as quick as we can,"
said Trim.
Howe, Piazza and Trim unan-
imously recommended Option
2.
"I think it gives you the best
benefit out of all four alterna-
tives," Piazza said.
Even though Option 1 was
only $10 million more, and
would leave just the southern

As required by law, Venice
City Manager Marty Black and
Finance Director Jeff Snyder pre-
sented city council a balanced
2008-09 budget Tuesday without
an increase in the 2.779 millage
rate.
The budget includes funds for
beach renourishment, the My-
akka River Park and enhanced
landscaping for the northern
Business 41/41 Bypass intersec-
tion, among other projects.
But, Black and Snyder warn-
ed, leaving the rate at its current
level could have serious conse-
quences in the near future.
"What's different this year,"
Black said, "is the impacts of tax
reform and economic condi-
tions."
Additional tax-cutting mea-
sures are expected from the
Florida Legislature next year,
including the possibility of cap-
ping local rates or restricting the
amount they can be increased.
And, Black said, the economy is
not recovering very quickly.
That could leave the city
without funds to pay for projects
being put in the revised compre-
hensive plan council has been
working on for months.
For example, he said, there
would be no money for any

City council will hold budget
workshops on Aug. 11 and

will be on Sept. 9 and 23.


improvements on the cement
plant properties next to the train
depot the city has budgeted 1-
cent sales surtax revenue to
acquire.
"Understand you have a very
limited budget," Black said.
He and Snyder recommend-
ed council adopt a working tax
rate of 3.3588 mills to create a
"safety margin." (A mill is $1 per
$1,000 of a home's taxable val-
ue.) That rate can be adjusted
downward, but not raised, as
council goes through the bud-
get-adoption process.
Flexibility
Due to tax-reform measures
passed by the Legislature this
year and the continuing weak
economy, the current millage
rate would bring the city about
$2 million less revenue next year.
The higher rate agreed on for
discussion purposes would gen-
erate about $100,000 more in
2008-09.

County sees savings in solar


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Sarasota County may have
found an easy way to go green
and save us money.
Encouraged by recommen-
dations from a grassroots citi-
zens group, the county has been
studying the possibility of estab-
lishing a solar hot-water utility
to serve homes and businesses.
Twenty citizens met over sev-
eral months in workshops under
the auspices of Sarasota County
Openly Plans for Excellence, a
goal-setting organization. They
concluded that the county can
save residents money by reduc-
ing energy costs.
Their proposal, submitted to
county Public Works, has led to
staff recommendations to the
board of county commissioners.
The SCOPE discussion group
set a goal of half of all new resi-
dential and commercial build-
ings and half of existing build-
ings in the county to have work-
ing solar water heaters by 2013.
SCOPE, a nonprofit organiza-
tion established in 2001, brings
county residents together "to
build understanding of the qual-
ities that make (the county) a
good place to live, work and


raise a family," according to its
2007 annual report. It has since
2006 organized networking ses-
sions, workshops and mentor-
ing meetings of citizens examin-
ing the community.
Gary Patton, energy coordi-
nator in the facilities services
office of county public works,
said that staffers have consid-
ered several approaches to
encourage the use of solar hot-
water systems. Two examples: a
utility could be created to install
water heaters; or, the existing
county utilities department
could incorporate a water heater
section.
They visualize a solar thermal
citizens task force that would, as a
first step, assume the SCOPE
group's workto advance a program.
Expectations
Patton said that Orange
County works with its area utili-
ty on such a program, the only
one in the state. But FPL, the
area utility, has expressed no
interest, even though Gov.
Charlie Crist proposed an alter-
native energy initiative.

households that install solar

Beaches get all-clear sign


The advisory has been lift-
ed at Brohard Park, Blind Pass
Beach and the Venice Fishing
Pier.
Water quality at these loca-
tions now meets both the U.S.
Environmental Protection
Agency and state recreational
water standards. People may
return to swimming and other
water sports at these beach
sites.
The Sarasota County
Health Department monitors
water quality weekly at 16 sites


along Sarasota's 34 miles of
beaches. The intent of this
program is to provide resi-
dents and visitors accurate,
up-to-date information on the
water quality at county beach-
es.
Residents and visitors can
go to www.OurGulfEnviron
ment.net to check beach
water testing results of area
gulf beaches, or call the Sara-
sota County Health Depart-
ment's Environmental Health
Office at 861-6133.

Estimate your Social Security benefits online


FROM THE SOCIAL
SECURITY
ADMINISTRATION


Michael J. Astrue, com-
missioner of Social
Security, has unveiled a
new online calculator at
www.socialsecurity.gov/
estimator that will provide
immediate and personal-
ized benefit estimates to
help people plan for their


retirement.
The Retirement Estima-
tor is tied to a person's
actual Social Security
earnings record and elimi-
nates the need to manual-
ly key in years of earnings
information.
The Retirement Estima-
tor is interactive, allowing
the user to compare differ-
ent retirement options.
For example, a person can

change retirement dates
or expected future earn-
ings. Individuals also can
print out up to three differ-
ent scenarios at one time,
in addition to information
about their benefits at age
62 (current age if older),
full retirement age and age
70.
Best of all, the Retire-
ment Estimator is secure.
The only thing it provides
online is retirement benefit
estimates. It does not show
the earnings record infor-
mation on which the final
benefit estimate was calcu-
lated, nor does it reveal
other personal informa-
tion.
"The Retirement Estima-
tor is just one of many


things we are doing to
make more information
and services people need
available over the Internet,"
Astrue said. "We recently
unveiled a new home page
at www.socialsecurity.gov
that reduces visual clutter
and is easier to navigate. In
the fall, we will introduce
the public to our next ini-
tiative: a total overhaul of
our online retirement
application that will reduce
the average filing time from
45 minutes to about 15
minutes.
"These initiatives will
help us better handle the
baby boomer wave and
make it easier for the pub-
lic to do business with us
online."

Three Republicans vie for Grant's seat


BY GREG MARTIN
STAFF WRITER


They may have different
professions, but a plastic
surgeon, a mortician and a
tax adviser who are run-
ning for the Republican
nomination in the District
71 state House race this
August share some com-
mon interests.
All three, surgeon Chris
Constance, mortuary own-
er Ken Roberson and tax
adviser Richard Santos,
hope to keep taxes and
insurance costs low and
value Southwest Florida's
environment, but would
consider offshore oil drilling
to help economic recovery.
But they differ on
strategies and other prior-
ities, according to inter-
views with the candidates.
All three have never held
public office before, but all
three indicated they have
been considering politics
for some time. In fact, both
Roberson and Santos have
run, unsuccessfully, for
local legislative seats with-
in the past few years.
The departure of incum-
bent state Rep. Mike Grant,
R-Port Charlotte, who
announced he won't be
seeking re-election, created
an opportunity for the can-
didates to seek the office,
which represents parts of


Sarasota, Charlotte and Lee
counties. Grant is running
for a state Senate seat.
"When Mike Grant
decided to run for the
Senate, I had a lot of peo-
ple in the community ask
me to consider running,"
said Roberson, owner of
Roberson Funeral Home &
Crematory. "After a lot of
thought and prayer, I
decided to do it again.
"I love Florida, I'm opti-
mistic about Florida, I've
got grandkids in this coun-
ty, but I think we're at a
crossroads and we need to
make some tough deci-
sions," said Roberson, a
Florida native who grew
up in Bradenton.
Constance, a plastic sur-
geon who has practiced in
Port Charlotte since mov-
ing here from New York in
1994, said he decided to
join the race last summer.
He said he came to the
conclusion "there was a
weak field" of candidates.
"I honestly see there's a
tremendous need," he said.
"I've been thinking about
this for the last four years."
Constance said he also
watched the political
career of District 72 Rep.
Paige Kreegel, R-Punta
Gorda, who is also a local
medical doctor.
"Paige Kreegel is an
acquaintance of mine and


I saw he was able to serve
in the Legislature and
keep his practice going -
and be a very effective leg-
islator," Constance said.
He said he hopes to
work "side-by-side" with
Kreegel.
Broader agenda
When Santos first ran for
election in 2006, his primary
goal was to restore the rights
of fathers in child-custody
disputes. He said he experi-
enced some of the injustices
in the system after the
mother of his son was auto-
matically granted custody. It
took him 12 months of liti-
gation to regain his parental
rights, he said.
Now, however, Santos
said his interest has broad-
ened. Now, he wants to
represent "the common
man" in his district.
"I'm young, successful
businessman myself," he
said. "While I can relate to
the common people in our
community, I'm also suc-
cessful. My youth and my
success, which I achieved
with very little resources,
should tell the voters I'm
very capable of being the
leader that they need."
Santos, a tax preparer,
runs two Jackson Hewitt
tax preparation franchises,
one in Port Charlotte and
one in Lehigh Acres.


He said his experience
as a tax adviser and busi-
ness owner makes him
qualified to manage the
state's finances.
Even in 2006, which
was a banner year for state
revenues, Santos recalled
he warned that the state
was "growing its budget
too large." It grew by 18
percent that year.
"I argued that was not
sustainable (and) would
lead to cuts that would
hurt the state," he said. 'As
a financial person and a
business manager, I would
have been more frugal."
'Missteps'
The Legislature's move
a year ago to put property
tax-exemption amend-
ments to a referendum
were appropriate, Santos
said. That's because both
the local and state govern-
ments "spent a lot of
money, put quite simply."

Now, however, both
governments have been
doing "a decent job at cut-
ting back," he said.
Roberson said Amend-
ment 1, which doubled the
homestead exemption, was
"a good first step," but more
needs to be done. He said he
supports additional legisla-
tion to go on the November
ballot that will cap property
tax increases at 5 percent for


nonhomestead properties.
Currently, the Save Our
Homes Act caps tax increas-
es at 3 percent for home-
stead properties.
Roberson is also con-
cerned, however, that fur-
ther cuts will hurt educa-
tion funding, something
he sees as critical.
"The first thing we need
to do is restart our econom-
ic engine in Florida,"
Roberson said. "One of the
ways you do that is you have
an educated work force, so
you have to make sure that
education is funded."
Local governments have
had to make drastic budget
cuts due to the decline in
revenue.
Despite that, Constance
thinks local property tax
rates are "still too high."
"I think there's been
some missteps," he said.
"The medicine we're having
to take now stems from the
mistakes made yesterday."
The budget woes illus-
trate a need for "better
communication and over-
sight," Constance said.
He said he hopes to not
only communicate with
county commissioners but
also members of Congress.
Drilling
Constance, Santos and
Roberson all said that while
they value the environmen-


tal resources in Southwest
Florida, they would consid-
er offshore oil drilling.
"I'm big on the environ-
ment," Roberson said. "I'm
a native Floridian, born
here, and know what it
was like years ago.
'At the same time, we've
got to plan for the future.
We've got to look at every-
thing, nuclear, solar. Off-
shore oil drilling is just one
of the things that need to
be considered, as long as
it's done in a way that pro-
tects Southwest Florida's
coastline."
Constance has expressed
some angst over drilling,
but is in favor of it.
"We have a whole lot of
oil and natural gas in the
Gulf, but it may not be
easy to sell to people who
love the beach," he said at
a recent forum.
Constance, in his plat-
form, also emphasizes a
need to provide more bor-
der security and safeguard
the elderly from caretaker
fraud.
"These people are able
to take over complete con-
trol of their assets, even
their homes, and slowly sell
things off until these peo-
ple are penniless," he said.
The winner of the Aug.
26 primary will face
Democrat Betty Gissen-
danner in November.

"I think you risk not being

Howe said.
And, he reassured

in taxes regardless, Black
said, because their proper-
ty values went up. The
higher millage rate would
mean more taxpayers
would see an increase.
Besides the projects to
be funded, the proposed
budget has good news for
city staff: It includes no
layoffs. It would authorize
313 city positions, of which
about 290 are currently
filled.
Funding for the extra
positions gives the city
some flexibility, Black said,
so the budget would not
have to be amended in
order to hire someone. It
also gives the city some
negotiating room when
talks begin with the em-
ployees' union.
Council voted unani-
mously to take the higher
millage rate into its budget
talks.
"I think it would be dan-
gerous for us to do any-
thing different, with things
being so uncertain," said
Council Member John
Simmonds.

SOLAR from Page lA
water heaters two months
ago ran out of money. Five
million dollars was bud-
geted for the current fiscal
year.
Incentives similar to the
state's range as high as
$1,200 elsewhere in the
United States, according to
the Florida Solar Energy
Center. Tax and federal
credits are also available
for installation.
Typically, according to
FSEC, hot-water use for a
family of four costs about
$70 a day. Patton and oth-
ers suggest that such a
family can save 50 to 85
percent of the hot-water
portion of its monthly util-
ity bill with a solar water
heater. That is, assuming
the back-up heating ele-
ment is maintained at 122
degrees.
They estimate annual
savings of $200 to $300.
Even more can be saved
if the family turns off the
back-up, and relies solely
on the sun. That is espe-
cially so in summertime,
when the sun shines
longer and the back-up is
used less.
Rule-of-thumb in these
estimates is that this family
uses an electric dishwasher
and clothes washer.
Two types of solar col-
lectors are common to
such programs. They are
usually 4 feet by 5 feet and
12 inches thick, and cost
$3,500 to $5,500 to install.
The collector takes up
about 40 square feet of
space, and includes two
tanks that store 80 gallons
of water.
Sunshine hits the col-
lector and heats the water
inside. That is circulated


by a pump as the sun's
intensity changes.
Before an incentive is
paid in most programs, the
household has to prove
that it completed an ener-
gy audit, and that a system
was installed. Incentives
are normally limited to
one per property.

SUN NEWSPAPERS 5A


Groups sue for 'nutrient' limits


Algae bloom causes water treatment plant to
stop production.


BY GERALD ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

A water treatment plant
serving 30,000 Southwest
Florida residents was shut
down two weeks ago after a
toxic blue-green algae
bloom on the Caloosahat-
chee River threatened the
plant's source water supply.
It was the latest incident
of pollution-fueled blooms
threatening public health.
Algae blooms have


been fouling Southwest
Florida beaches, lakes,
rivers and springs much
more in recent months.
They were responsible for
the high bacteria counts
that forced the closing of
beaches at the Venice
Fishing Pier, Manasota
Key and Brohard Park.
Every times it rains, run-
off from fertilized land-
scapes and farms pour fer-
tilizer and animal waste
residue into coastal waters.


Referred to as "nutrients,"
these contaminants nour-
ish algae blooms.
A lawsuit filed last week
by five statewide environ-
mental groups seeks to
compel the U.S. Environ-
mental Protection Agency
to set new limits on the
nutrient poisoning that
triggers harmful algae
blooms.
The complaint was filed
in the U.S. District Court
for Florida's Northern
District.
The suit challenges de-
lays by the state and the
EPA in setting such limits


Woodley appointed interim city manager


FROM THE CITY
OF VENICE


Nancy K. Woodley, PE.,
Ph.D. was named interim
Venice city manager Tues-
day. She will begin her
duties in August, when
current City Manager
Marty Black begins his re-
tirement.
Woodley began work-
ing for the city in 1997. In
2007, she was named gen-
eral manager of develop-
ment services, adding the
oversight of the planning
and zoning, building and
code enforcement depart-
ments.
Woodley began her
professional career in 1967


as a planning analyst for
the city of Sarasota. In
1968-69 she served the city
of Louisville and Jefferson
County Regional Planning
Commission as a current
planner.
The following year, she
moved to Tuscaloosa, Ala.,
where she worked as the
principal planner, and
later project manager for
the regional planning
commission.
After receiving her doc-
torate from the University
of Alabama, Tuscaloosa,
School of Engineering, she
then worked for a consult-
ing firm.
At the same time she
served as an adjunct pro-


fessor at the University of
Alabama, teaching grad-
uate classes in environ-
mental engineering and
environmental law.
In 1997, Woodley re-
turned to Sarasota County,
where she worked part-
time for a consulting firm
the city of Venice hired to
help obtain permits for
what was then its newly
formed stormwater utility.
She was hired as the full-
time assistant city engi-
neer Oct. 1, 1999, and was
promoted to city engineer
in 2001.
Woodley was selected
to serve as interim city
manager by unanimous
vote of city council.


since 1998.
Florida and most other
states have only vague lim-
its regulating nutrient pol-
lution. The complaint
seeks a court order that
requires the EPA to impose
specific and enforceable
limits for those contami-
nates in Florida, as re-
quired in the Clean Air Act.
The EPA gave Florida a
2004 deadline to set limits
for nutrient pollution,
which the state disregard-


ed. The EPA was supposed
to set limits itself. It also
failed to do so.
"Each time an extension
is granted, it essentially
guarantees these contami-
nates will continue to flow
into our rivers, lakes and
oceans," said Manley Fuller,
president of the Wildlife
Federation, one of the five
complainants.
"That endangers our
wildlife and threatens our
economy."


BOARD from Page 1A


Matters appeared at an
impasse until one of the
airport board members
spoke.
Walter Hake, a recent
appointee, said he felt as if
all three meetings of the
board he has attended
have been a "waste of
time." Council should just
ask all the members to
resign so it can make new
appointments.
"I'll be the first one," he
said.
Noren made the mo-
tion and it passed 5-2, with
Tacy and Simmonds in
opposition.
"I'm out of a job," said
board member Jim Leis,
who was at the council
meeting.
Reminded that council
had only requested the
resignations, Leis said, "It's
what they want."


HANSON IN
LIMBO
After extended discus-
sion, city council decid-
ed to go through with
the request for qualifica-
tions it published seek-
ing a new airport con-
sultant. Members
agreed, though, that
they would consider a
submission from
Hanson Professional
Services, which a year
ago acquired MEA
Group, the firm that pre-
pared the plan to be
revised. Lisa Waters of
the firm said they
haven't yet decided
whether to apply.

OUR VIEW


What the airport's boosters just don't get


Venice Airport Business Asso-
ciation President Chuck Schmiel-
er made at least one point recent-
ly that everyone should agree with: The
city ofVenice has done a rather poor job
educating the public about the issues
concerning the Venice Municipal Air-
port.
To be fair, however, a good deal of
information has been put out, but it's
either been so technical that lay people
can't understand it or so vague that it
created confusion that people with an
agenda have used to their advantage.
We're probably going out on a limb
purporting to speak for the people who
are worried about whether their house
is going to be taken away from them, or
the Lake Venice Golf Club is going to be
paved over. But we think we've heard
these concerns and others expressed by
enough readers in person and through
letters and Let'em Have It calls to have a
pretty good feel for what the city's talk-
ing points should have been.
Such concerns are glibly dismissed
by the airport's boosters, but they fail to
recognize that they don't have enough


credibility with this group to get the
message through. Also, they don't grasp
that most Venetians don't have the kind
of connection with the airport that they
do.
Most have never used the airport for
aviation purposes and never will. They
may understand intellectually the risk
of a crash in a residential area or the role
the airport would play if a hurricane hit,
but neither has happened. Other than
eating at a restaurant there, or perhaps
attending an event on the festival
grounds, they just don't see the airport
as a significant part of their lives. If it
didn't exist, they wouldn't miss it.
Sadly, the city has become polarized
over the airport and, in the finest new
American tradition, earnest and open
debate have given way to partisanship
and rhetoric. Maybe addressing a few
myths will help get the discussion back
on track.
Myth 1: They're trying to lengthen
the runways. No, they're not, whoever
"they" may be. No proposal regarding
the airport has included lengthening
either runway. Accommodating Federal


Aviation Administration standards
could infringe on the Lake Venice Golf
Club, but to enlarge the safety zone, not
to make the runway longer.
One potential solution to the problem
of a runway protection zone extending
over the Gulf Shores neighborhood is to
lengthen runway 13/31, but only at the
Circus Bridge end, while shortening the
usable length at the western end, keeping
it at 5,000 feet total but ending the RPZ
short of Gulf Shores.
Myth 2: Homes in the Gulf Shores
neighborhood are going to be confiscat-
ed because they are in a runway protec-
tion zone. While the FAA does some-
times fund the purchase of properties in
this situation, the decision to take them
has to be made by the city, which strikes
us as political suicide. It's very likely a
less drastic solution will satisfy the
agency.
Myth 3: VMA is a B-II airport in C-II
clothing. As we understand it, these
designations refer not the the amount
of traffic at an airport but rather the size
of the planes it can accommodate. With
two mile-long runways built for training


pilots in World War II, VMA can handle
some pretty big aircraft. And, from what
we've seen, the city has no authority to
reject planes that fit on the runways.
Now, that's not the same as encour-
aging more use of the airport, but the
business community and the city are
both looking to make more money from
it somehow businesses because
that's what they do and the city because
the airport is supposed to be self-sus-
taining.
It's not likely to come from more air
travel; the number of take-offs and
landings appears to be way down post-
Sept.11 and in a time of sky-high gas
prices. That probably means more busi-
ness growth, and city council is on
record supporting more commerce in
the arena area.
There's a lot more to the airport issue
than these three myths, but if we can
put them to rest, maybe we can move
on to some subjects that really deserve
attention.
Next, though, we'll take a look at
some things the airport's detractors are
in denial about.


Very sneaky


BOB VEDDER
PUBLISHER


When we voted for the
1-cent sales surtax, we
were told that there was a
very specific list of things
that we were voting for. Oh
sure, there were a few
things open-ended, like
sidewalks and parks, but
by and large it was for spe-
cific capital expenditures.
Now the county is con-
sidering how the 1-cent
sales surtax can be used
for the Boston Red Sox.
Nowhere do I remember
voting for a Major League
Spring Training stadium
for the Red Sox or anyone
else.
I guess they figured if
they had the money down
for the fairgrounds and
they built a stadium on the
fairgrounds, that meant
we approved it for that
purpose. On the other
hand, maybe we thought
"fairgrounds" had some-
thing to do with the fair
and its facilities. Heck
maybe it will, when it is all
said and done.
Robarts Arena needs to
be replaced a lot more
than we need the Red Sox.
We use that facility 80
times year and would use
it a lot more if it were
upgraded, while we use
the ball field maybe 15
times in March. It would
get used some other times,
especially if there is a
minor league team (which
almost nobody watches).
I love baseball more
than most, so I'm sure I
could get excited for a
team but to give $80 mil-
lion to promote a business
that is worth billions is
very difficult for me to
swallow. How is it there is
no commitment of any
kind from the Red Sox?

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Gateway to Venice? For whom?


Editor:
What Bob Vedder's column in the Gondolier Sun for-
got to mention is that it was the old city council that did
not submit the MEA-developed Airport Master Plan to
the FAA, and wasted $300,000 of federal money. This
problem was dumped on the current council because of
the overzealous and misguided directions by the last
council.
He also mentions the Sunshine Law mess as if it only
involves the new council members. It appears from e-
mails made public that John Simmonds (who serves as
ex officio on the Airport Advisory Board) may have com-
mitted the most deliberate violations.
The correction published on page 3A points to the
fact that the paper does not know the difference
between a runway and a taxiway. The picture of weeds
on the runway was taken of a taxiway; maybe a gallon of
Round-Up would help. Do we not have a maintenance
person on the airport staff?
This is the second time Mr.Vedder has mentioned the
airport as the gateway to Venice. If you are still laughing
at this comment send Bob an e-mail (ravedder@venice-
gondolier.com) and let him know how you arrived in
Venice.
It is about time this paper starts reporting facts and
not slanting every article in support of the good old boy
network. The last election spoke very clearly that their
days are over and no longer do a few insiders run Venice.

N ew laws affect all local schools LET'EM HAVE IT: SHOULD VENICE CONSIDER SWITCHING TO A STRONG-MAYOR
FORM OF GOVERNMENT, AND DO AWAY WITH THE CITY MANAGER POSITION?


BARBARA RENDELL
GUEST COLUMNIST


The main mission of
the state Legislature this
past session was to slash
the 2009 budget.
Because of sinking state
revenues, legislators made
$6 billion in cuts that ran
deep and wide, signifi-
cantly affecting many ba-
sic functions of state gov-
ernment, including our
schools. Education fund-
ing was cut by $1 billion.
Though budget-cutting
was uppermost in most
lawmaker's minds, they
also passed a slew of bills,
some of which will bring
major reforms to Florida's
education system.
Here's a rundown of
some of the more signifi-
cant bills.
SB 1908 is a huge bill
that addresses a variety of
education issues. It requir-
es the current Sunshine
State Standards be replac-
ed by the "world class"
NeXt Generation Stand-
ards known for their de-
manding benchmarks and
emphasis on civics and
social studies by De-
cember 2011. The new
standards are meant to
raise Florida's national
academic standing and to
raise the performance of
high school graduates.
The bill also prohibits
school districts from sus-
pending regular instruc-

quarterbacking is really
much easier, though.

Two fundraising ideas
were sent to me from local
folks. One, from Jerry
Gallagher, is an additive
that you put in your gas to
improve gas mileage. It is
purported to save 15-25
percent in gas mileage.
You sell the stuff, which is
good for maybe 10 fill-ups,
at a mark-up and the
agency gets the profit. I
have this product in the
Vedder Testing Labs but it
is too earlier for a verdict.
The other is a travel
Web site that each non-
profit can have on its own
Web site; 60 percent of all
commissions that come
from your Web site returns
to the nonprofit. I need to
get into this a little further.

Virginia Koss brought


tion in order to prepare for
FCAT, and it sets a later
date for the FCATs to be
administered.
Additionally, it de-empha-
sizes the role FCAT plays in
grading high schools.
Currently, a high school's
grade is determined entire-
ly by FCAT. Now, FCAT will
compose half of a school's
grade and the other half
will include graduation
rates and student perfor-
mance in advanced cours-
es and on college place-
ment tests (e.g., SAT, ACT).
Hopefully, this broader
grading system will more
accurately reflect a school's
performance.
Another bill that pass-
ed was The Don Davis
Physical Education Act (SB
610). Written to further
improve the fitness of
Florida's students, this bill
addresses middle school
students. It requires dis-
tricts to provide one class
period a day of physical
education for one semes-
ter a year for students in
sixth through eighth grad-
es. The class may be waiv-
ed for students in remedial
courses and parents may
waive the requirement un-
der certain conditions.
Currently, districts are re-
quired to provide 30 min-
utes a day to elementary
students.
SB 1712, The Ethics in
Education Act, was written
in response to many cases
of teacher misconduct.
The bill obligates school
officials to conduct thor-
ough background checks
of prospective teachers
and administrators. It re-
quires districts to aggres-
sively investigate charges
of misconduct. It forbids
"confidentiality agree-
ments" that would cover
unethical behavior, and it

Vee Garry-Chiulli drop-
ped off a couple of copies
of the Branson Daily,
which has been the local
paper for more than 100
years. It had a nice Q&A
sort of man-on-the-street
column about local issues.
It also did something I
have never seen before:
lowered the price of the
paper (from 75 to 50 cents)
in the racks and stores to
help people in tough
times.

Robert A. Vedder writes
a twice-weekly column in
this paper.

also prohibits the state
from giving retirement
benefits to teachers who
commit certain felony of-
fenses against a minor.
Also, administrators who
knowingly hide an offense
could lose a year's salary.
Another bill, HB 669,
created The Jeffrey John-
ston Stand Up for All
Students Act. It prohibits
bullying or harassment,
including cyber bullying,
of any public K-12 student
or employee. School dis-
tricts will be required to
report all instances of bul-
lying or harassment and to
notify the parents of the
bully and parents of the
victim. The bill also re-
quires school districts
(together with parents,
students, teachers, admin-
istrators, and law enforce-
ment) to develop policies
to prohibit bullying. Hope-
fully, this communication
among parents, students
and teachers will help pre-
vent bullying.
HB 653, The Stand Up
for Children Scholarship
Program, is one of the few
bills that provides for an
increase in funding. The
increase, however, goes to
private schools. Though
lawmakers cut public
school funding by about
$1 billion, they allotted $30
million to expand the cor-
porate income-tax credit
to supply scholarships for
tuition to private schools.
Businesses are allowed to
designate a portion of
their taxes to fund the pro-
gram. This year, an addi-
tional 5,000 students will
be able to take public
money to attend private
schools.

Barbara Rendell is the
vice chair of the Charlotte
County School Board.


LETTERS from Page 6A
A tale of two signs
Editor:
Who is Doug Holder?
As I was driving down
U.S. 41 today, I saw a sign.
It said, "Elect Doug Holder,
State Representative." I
thought back and remem-
bered the last time I saw
that name.
It was two years ago
when he was running for


Plastic is worse than any butt


Worse than butts. I think there should be no plastic
foam lunch carriers in government buildings; no plastic
on boats, only glass. It should be illegal to smoke on
boats because they throw their butts in the water, too,
just like they do on the beach. I think beachgoers should
be allowed to smoke with buckets of sand that they can
put their butts in. I don't smoke anymore, but one thing
I did enjoy about the beach was having a smoke after a
swim. I think that's a joy that should not be taken away;
if people want to harm their health, that's their business.
It seems to me all this junk in the ocean and in our water
is doing a lot more damage than a cigarette butt.


Rerun? In the July 6
issue in the Around Town
section, there's a picture of
the Rev. Andy Simpkins
dedicating the Habitat for
Humanity home; I believe
this is the third time you
printed this picture and
covered this story. Al-
though it's a wonderful
project, I don't understand
why it keeps being rerun
and rerun and rerun. May-
be someone can explain.
EDITOR'S NOTE: We cov-
ered the story from two per-
spectives, once as an Our
Town feature, once on the
Around Town North page.
Low tech. The city of
Venice and its information
management: It sounds
like the city has created a
monster when it didn't
have to. As mentioned in
the local news, generally
speaking, most of the info
sent or received via com-
puters has to be retained
for three years minimum.
That's a no-brainer. If
there is no way to guaran-
tee the info being retained
for that period of time,
then laptop computers or
whatever they're using
cannot be used for con-
ducting city business from
the homes of the council,
staff or anybody else.
Again, this is not rocket


science. The city staff has a
duty to see to it that the
information has to be re-
tained according to the
state mandate. Don't buy
into the latest technology.
Some states and local gov-
ernments saw the poten-
tial problem with certain
computers and did not
allow certain technology
to be used, even if it seems
more efficient. Think of
the cost from attorney's
fees being accrued by the
city of Venice with this lat-
est situation. The headline
reads, "Venice e-mail
training is lacking." Well,
whose fault is that? Thou-
sands of dollars, and who
knows how long this will
drag out? We could spend
several hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars before this
is all over. The city taxpay-
ers paid for these council
members' computers, so
personal business or infor-
mation have no business
being conducted on these
computers.
Triple play. Three short
items: What ever hap-
pened to no shoes, no
shirt, no service? If some of
these men would see their
physical bodies without
their shirt on, they proba-
bly would not do that.
Also, we still have to drive


through a lake to get into
Bird Bay Shopping Center.
And, will they be fixing the
service road in front of
Taco Bell when it opens as
a new store?
EDITOR'S NOTE: The road
has been fixed, though who
knows how long it will last.
Face off. I was reading
an article where it says,
"Minister's family acquires
beauty parlor." I thought it
was quite nice and goes on
to say that they going to
put their daughter to work
when she obtains her cos-
metology license. That was
all fine until I continued
reading, and I will quote
the Gondolier Sun: "We
will be hiring new, younger
faces, and our cosmetolo-
gists will continue re-
searching new products,"
she said. I'm very dis-
turbed by the fact that a
minister's family empha-
sizes hiring new, younger
faces. What are they going
to do, get rid of the good-
time beauticians that they
have, whom I know per-
sonally? They're not as
young, but they're very,
very good at their profes-
sion. I feel that this is cer-
tainly a discrimination of
age, and for a minister's
family to come out and say
this sort of thing ... I doubt
very seriously it's their real,
true intentions. I think this
is terrible, and an apology
should be noted, and these
people should be in-
formed. I think everybody
knows, from the article,
which beauty salon they
have purchased and go
from there.

ASHA Certified Audiologist

Q. My hearing aid started
sounding very noisy, so I
took it into a hearing aid
shop to have it looked at.
The man cleaned it and
put in a new battery and
said it should be fine but
it still sounds funny. Now
what?
started Even though your
hearing aids working, it
may not be working as it
did when it was original
manufactured. Many
people think that if their
hearing aid "whistles"
when they hold it in their
hand, that everything is
working as it should. The
only thing the whistle tells
you is that your battery is
still good, and that there is
an electronic current
flowing through the
instrument. It tells you
nothing about the quality of
sound the instrument is
producing. The only way to
insure that your hearing aid
is working as it was
originally meant to, is to
have an electroacoustic test
performed on it. This test
will check the operation of
your hearing aid at many
difference frequencies and
loudness levels. These
measures are then
compared to the measures
that were taken when the
hearing aid was brand new.
The measures should be the
same. If they differ, the
hearing aid should be
returned to the
manufacturer for repair. If
you feel your hearing aid is
not performing as it once
did, contact the
Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing & Balance
Centers, Inc. at
(941) 492-4327 to schedule
a electroacoustic test on
your hearing aids. Then
you will know for sure if
repairs necessary or not.

OBITUARIES


POLICE BEAT


Patricia Damico
Patricia Carol Damico,
59, of Port Charlotte, Fla.,
passed away Sunday, July
20, 2008, at Fawcett
Memorial Hospital in Port
Charlotte.
She was born Dec. 11,
1948, in Pittsburgh, Pa., and
moved to Port Charlotte
with her family in 1989. She
worked at the Charlotte
Sun and for Daystar
Communications. She was
a member of Elks Lodge
No. 2153 in Port Charlotte.
She is survived by her
loving husband of 40
years, Thomas V Damico
of Port Charlotte; her son,
Jeffrey (Jill) Damico of Port
Charlotte; her daughter,
Jennifer (Scott) Wadsworth
of Port Charlotte; and her
brother, Phil Turner of
Georgia. She will be
missed by her five grand-
children: Davin, Tyler and
Peighton Wadsworth and
Julia and Joel Damico.
Pat, whose friends called
her Patty, spent her last
days battling cancer. But
the disease isn't what her
family will remember.
They'll remember how she
was a horrible backseat
driver, that John was her
favorite Beatle, how she
loved to play cards and
shout Bingo! and how she
played air sax years before
anyone strummed an air
guitar But Pat's true joys in
life were her children and
grandchildren, who will
never forget her hugs, her
bright blue eyes, her sense
of humor or her meatballs.
Services: There will be a
Memorial Mass at 10 a.m.,
Wednesday, July 23, at St.
Charles Borromeo
Catholic Church, 21205
Augusta Ave., Port
Charlotte. The Rev. Father
John Ludden will officiate.
Friends may extend con-
dolences to the family and
sign a guestbook online at
www.robersonfh.com.
Arrangements are by
Roberson Funeral Home,
Port Charlotte Chapel. For
anyone wishing to send
cards to the family, the
address is Tom Damico,
1631 Abalom St., Port
Charlotte, FL 33980.
Contributions: Memorial
contributions may be


made to Tom Damico for
memorials planned by the
family at a later date.

1951. Mark was an electri-
cian by trade but for many
years worked as a superin-

jft Rahal digs Marshall, becomes first commitment of 2010


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


Venice is

'TitleTown'
Today begins the voting
for ESPN SportsCenter's
TitleTown, USA, competi-
tion. The so-called "ex-
perts" have narrowed it
down to 20 finalists for you
to choose from. Venice
wasn't nominated, but
we've got a better shot
than some of the finalists.
Venice High School has
eight state titles in the past
10 years.
The run began on the
volleyball court. Led by
Head Coach Brian Wheat-
ley, Venice got their first
state title in school history
in 1998.
Next came the football
team in 2000. The 10-0
Venice Indians romped in
the state tournament open-
er, then the Green andWhite
went on an improbable run,
winning three games by a
combined 11 points. Most of
you remember the Romp in
the Swamp that followed.
Thousands of Venice
faithful packed the stands at
Florida Field in Gainesville
to watch the Indians roll
Dwyer High School 77-14
for the program's first state
championship.
Wheatley's 2005 volley-
ball squad sandwiched the
football team with another
title before the baseball
team had an improbable
run of their own in 2007.
After a close, 2-1 win over
Middleton High School that
vaulted Venice into the
regional finals, the Indians
pounded out three more
wins by a combined 25-3
for the ultimate prize.
In the wrestling pro-
gram, names like Jeremie
Cook (2005 state champ at
189) and Wade Consul
(2008 state champ at 112)
come to mind. The swim
team has Mark Cox and his
100-yard butterfly cham-
pionship in 2006.
On the links, there is
Casey Kennedy with her
state title in 2007.
But it's not just success
on the field that makes
Venice TitleTown.
The boys basketball
team is the two-time
reigning Academic Team
Champion. Venice fans
turn out in greater force for
road games than any other
team in the area.
But the titles go beyond
Venice High.
Just this year, Miss
Venice Fastpitch softball
claimed five tournament
championships.
Venice Little League has
had their share of success,
including a national title for
the Seniors division in 1990.
Teams from the program
have won eight County Cup
titles since 1991. Venice
National League All-Star
teams have won seven
District 16 championships
since 1996, including a cur-
rent run of four straight by
the 9- and 10-year-olds. The
Venice American League
has one district title, to boot.
The Suncoast Orthope-
dic 70+ softball team has
won 15 national tourna-
ments since 2003. The
youngsters on the 60+
team have amassed a 258-
24 record since 1999, win-
ning nine consecutive Tri-
County Championship
tournaments.
Venice is TitleTown,
USA, or surely we have a
better shot at it than
Columbus, Ohio.

Dorothy Rahal is wise beyond
her years.
Not long after the end of her
sophomore year of high school,
she has already decided where
she's going to college. Rahal, 16,
committed to play volleyball at
Marshall University on a full ath-
letic scholarship beginning in
2010. She has even picked a major.
"I think it's a great fit for her
and it's a good school," Venice
Head Coach Brian Wheatley said.
"It's a great college town atmos-
phere and (Marshall Head Coach)
Mitch Jacobs does a great job. He's
a real good coach."
Rahal is part of an expanding
trend that sees kids even in middle
school committing to play Division
I basketball. Wheatley said it's get-
ting much more common for vol-
leyball players to start committing
before their junior year. It can be a
risk, but a working relationship
between Wheatley and Jacobs
eased some of that uncertainty.
Rahal was able to benefit from
Wheatley's connection to Jacobs,
who served as an assistant at the
University of South Florida and
the head coach at Florida Institute
of Technology before taking over
in Huntington. That relationship,
and the similarities between the
two coaches, is what led her to

in Tampa last season. Rahal recently committed to play Division I volleyball at
Marshall University.


commit to Marshall.
"Since Wheatley had already
kind of known about the whole
Marshall situation, he was able to
give me information on what the
volleyball was like and how the
coaches worked," Rahal said. "I
loved hearing that from him.
When I got to go to their recruiting
camp, it was just kind of reassur-
ing knowing that this was the right
place for me."


Last season with the Indians,
who reached the regional finals
against Plant High School, Rahal
was limited for half the season.
She spent that time on the bench
with a fractured wrist, but she says
she wasn't unable to help her
teammates, and she certainly
wasn't unable to improve. When
she finally did return, she was able
to contribute almost right away.
"I learned many things that I


didn't even realize as a player," she
said. "Just from sitting on the
bench I could see, 'oh, we need to
do this rotation. Oh, we should do
perimeter defense instead of rota-
tional defense.' All of the little
things that you don't see playing I
saw on the bench. It was great to
see it from that perspective."
With that knowledge, and
through experience coaching
younger players at Wheatley's
youth volleyball camps, Rahal
said she would like to major in
physical education and become a
volleyball coach one day.
"I would love to become a PE.
teacher and be able to coach my
own team, to start my own volley-
ball club in Huntington, or even in
any small town, just to create my
own name as a coach and a player
in a different state, a different
town," she said.
Rahal admitted she would miss
Venice, but that she's ready for
new experiences. After all, things
won't be all that different in
Huntington.
"It's kind of weird thinking that
I'm trading my coach for almost
the identical coach and trading
the colors (green white) for the
same colors," she said. "You lean
towards what's familiar, yet its
such in a different atmosphere
that it's a new experience. It's
weird, but I'm excited for it."

In a class all her own, Smith commits to Illinois


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


It only took Renee Slone about
an hour to build her entire 2009
recruiting class.
The Illinois women's golf coach
gave Venice High School senior
Crystal Smith a call July 1 and
offered her a full athletic scholar-
ship. That's all she had to do.
Smith is the class of 2009.
"Right now, she's having seven
freshmen come in the fall of '08,"
Smith explained. "So I will be her
only one in the fall of '09."
July 1 is the first day NCAA
coaches are permitted to contact
potential recruits. Smith was
aware of that fact when she
brought her cell phone onto the
golf course that day, just in case.
Sure enough, the phone rang
and it was Slone on the other end.
She said she was building a win-
ning program, and wanted Smith
on her team. It took a little less
than an hour of discussion, and
despite never having seen
Champaign, Ill., Smith couldn't
say no.
"I was kind of second-guessing
myself, maybe I should have wait-
ed," she said. "But it was one of
my top schools and I just couldn't
turn down a full scholarship on
the first day they were allowed to
contact me ... I had to say yes,
there's no other answer."
Smith originally contacted
Slone on a whim. Smith's grandfa-
ther graduated from Illinois, so
she sent Slone an e-mail detailing
her golfing accomplishments.
Slone was impressed, and replied
in less than 30 minutes. Later,
Smith received a pamphlet on the
newly opened, 16,000-square-

TideWell Hospice Golf
Tournament
The fifth-annual TideWell Hospice and
Palliative Care Golf Tournament, spon-
sored by First Draft Choice Sports Pub, is
scheduled for Aug. 10 at Lake Venice Golf


"That really caught my eye and
really got me interested in
Illinois," Smith said.


She didn't have to be sold on
the campus. As a Florida Gators
fan, she was already sold on the
school colors. Mostly, though, she
was sold on Renee Slone.
Slone, formerly Renee Heiken,
played at Illinois from 1990-93
and is the most decorated golfer
in school history, winning the
1993 Big Ten Championship and
earning National College Player of
the Year honors from the National
Golf Coaches Association and
Golfweek Magazine in the same
year. She is the school's all-time
career stroke average leader at
75.53. She is now set to begin just
her second year as coach.
In 2006, the year before Slone
took over, the Fighting Illini fin-
ished 10th in the Big Ten stand-
ings. In her first year as coach,
Slone took Illinois to sixth in the
final standings. In the same year,
the Fighting Illini shot an 890,
crushing the old 54-hole school
record of 901. It's all in the recruit-
ing.
"The coach that retired after 28
years really didn't recruit well,"
Smith said. "Coach Slone is
recruiting all over the country so
she's trying to build a really good
team."
Only time will tell how that tal-
ent develops, but for now Smith is
happy with her leap of faith. She
wants to pursue a career in sports
broadcasting, hopefully with the
Golf Channel.
"(Slone) told me that the
University of Illinois could offer
me a bright future in my career,"
Smith said. "She offered me a full
scholarship and I said yes, I'll take
it!"

FROM GCCFV


Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice has
awarded 367 scholarships
totaling $450,000 to deserv-
ing local students for the
2008-09 academic year.
This year's awards bring
the foundation's total schol-
arship awards since 1997 to
$3 million.
Many of this year's
recipients were honored at
the foundation's annual
scholarship reception at
Plantation Golf & Country
Club.
"This is a historic mile-
stone," said Teri A. Hansen,
foundation president and
CEO. "It shows what we
can accomplish, together,
as a community."
Scholarship recipients
ranged from recent high
school graduates entering
their freshman year of col-
lege to nontraditional stu-
dents returning to school
while working full-time or
raising families.
Nearly 300 attendees at
the July 10 event included
students' families and

The foundation's schol-
arship program was creat-
ed in 1997 when the board
of directors set aside funds
to help provide local stu-
dents with access to mean-
ingful postsecondary edu-


cation. Since then, 42 addi-
tional scholarship funds
have been established by
foundation donors.
Foundation scholarships
are available to qualified
students of all ages who are
pursuing postsecondary
education at an accredited


vocational school, two- or
four-year institution, or
graduate school.
Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice, the
largest community founda-
tion in Florida, has assets of
a quarter of a billion dollars.
Founded in late 1995, it has


awarded more than $76
million in grants in the
areas of arts and culture,
health and human services,
education, civic affairs, and
the environment.

i~ hi


RDS SCHOLARSHIPS 8B


BY JESSICA MILLER
INTERN


Although a picture is
worth a thousand
words, his goal is to tell
the story "without any
words at all."
Bill Farnsworth is known for
the extensive research he puts
into each project before even
starting his first sketch.
For the past 27 years,
Farnsworth has created paint-
ings for magazines, advertise-
ments, children's books and fine
art commissions of portraits
and landscapes.
Farnsworth is a 1980 gradu-
ate of the Ringling College of Art
and Design and has lived in
Venice with his wife, Debbie, for
more than 10 years.
Throughout his career as an
illustrator, Farnsworth has
designed the covers of more
than 80 children's and young
adults' books.
"I use the library all the time
when researching a project,"
Farnsworth said. "The Sarasota
County Library System is a great
resource for information."
Farnsworth visits schools and
libraries in the Venice area sev-
eral times a year to talk with
students about how an illustra-
tor works.
Recently, he spoke to chil-
dren at Jacaranda Public Library
emphasizing Native Americans
and his numerous illustrations
in the six-book series of
'American Girl."
"It is my pleasure to be able


to give something back by host-
ing these sessions at Jacaranda
Library," Farnsworth said.
From ideas to artwork
Farnsworth's subject matter
of his work ranges from a canoe
trip down the scenic Mississippi
River to extensive Native
American history.
A combination of library,
Internet, and his own collection
of books and photos are all ref-
erenced in detail before
Farnsworth begins to sketch his
first draft.
"I will even travel to the loca-
tion of the story," Farnsworth
said.
Farnsworth traveled to Idaho
and described the journey as a
"National Geographic expedi-
tion."
In his slide show presenta-
tion at Jacaranda Public Library,
Farnsworth described how he
used family members and even
himself to pose for different
shots.
"I like to take real pho-
tographs so I can capture the
feel of what I need to portray in
an illustration," Farnsworth
said.
Farnsworth had his wife pose
as an elderly Native American
woman.
"She was a real trooper,"
Farnsworth said jokingly.
After he brings his ideas to
life, Farnsworth is back in his
home studio to follow a process
of preliminary sketches and
color studies.
"Using light, color and tex-


SUN PHOTOS BY JESSICA MILLER
Bill Farnsworth describes the personal research process he went through when illustrating the novel "Buffalo
Song" to children at Jacaranda Library.


Farnsworth draws his favorite childhood character, Donald Duck, upon
request by a child during his visit at Jacaranda Library.


ture I try to bring the viewer
into the painting, so they too
can feel the moment in time,"
Farnsworth said.
How it all started
During the presentation at
Jacaranda Public Library, a
young boy asked "When did
you want to become an artist?"
"When I was little, very little,
I started drawing on the walls of
my bedroom," Farnsworth said.
His grandfather then gave
him a real drawing notebook
where Farnsworth began to


sketch birds and cartoons.
Farnsworth's favorite charac-
ters to draw were Mickey Mouse
and Donald Duck.
"I used to sell my sketches to
my classmates for 5 cents each
until I got in trouble by the
teacher," Farnsworth said.
Today, one of Farnsworth's
most accomplished illustrations
is the series for 'American Girl."
The six-book series is about a
young Native American girl,
Kaya, who lives in the tradition-
al homeland of the Nez Perce
tribe in 1764.


Farnsworth went through
several processes to perfect the
illustration of Kaya.
The model that Kaya's char-
acter was based off was flown to
Venice for photo shoots on six
different occasions.
Farnsworth was then able to
catch the reality of the character
he was portraying.
Worth all the hard work
The extensive research and
preparation of Farnsworth's
Please see ARTIST, 2B


p

ARTIST from Page 1 B
illustrations have been
recognized and appreci-
ated by many.
Farnsworth's paintings
were part of The Society
of Illustrators annual
show, and the Oil Painters
of America National
Show.
In 2002, the Kaya series
won New York Times
Bestseller Award.
An experienced speak-
er, Farnsworth gladly
travels to schools and
libraries in the area to talk


about how he illustrates
books with original art.
Farnsworth takes his
audience through the
step-by-step process of
research, sketches, pho-
tographing models and
painting the final piece.
Any age from second
grade to the college level
will benefit from Farns-
worth's years of experi-
ence as an illustration
instructor.
At the conclusion of
Farnsworth's presenta-
tion at Jacaranda Public
Library, a final question


was asked by the young
audience.
"Have you ever drawn
a bad picture?"
"I have drawn many
bad pictures," Farnsworth
said. "More bad ones than
good ones. You have to
break a few eggs first."
He continues to ex-
plain the hard work and
dedication needed to ac-
complish a goal.
Farnsworth will give
another presentation at
Jacaranda Public Library
Wednesday, July 23, at 6
p.m.

people with back
pain turn to custom-
made orthotics and other,
more generally available
forms of shoe insoles in the
hope that they will bring some
relief. While it may seem
reasonable to assume that these
foot-cushioning devices may take
) some of the stress off an aching
back, there is evidence that shows
otherwise. In fact, when Israeli
researchers recently analyzed six
studies that evaluated back pain
among people who either did or did
not use insoles, they found that the
shoe inserts neither prevented nor
treated pain significantly. It was
concluded that shoe inserts may
cushion the feet, but they do not
address alignment issues that
are an underlying cause of back
pain. For that, a chiropractor is
needed.

"Since 1997, the foun-
dation has awarded schol-
arships totaling $3 mil-
lion," Hansen told the
group.
Recipients are students
accepted to accredited
post-secondary schools,
technical programs and
graduate schools.
Their goals vary. Nicole
Holt, a single mom, looks


forward to her certifica-
tion as a massage thera-
pist. The scholarship helps
her achieve that dream.
"I know it will take a
long time, but I want to be
a pediatrician," said Lidice
Duran.
Donors told stories of
their loved ones wanting
to provide opportunities
for young people to enrich
their lives and to enrich
the community.
About 40 volunteers
served on the Scholarship
Selection Committee, in-
cluding Tony Levering,
who contributed more
than 60 volunteer hours.
Marcia Seman, past-presi-


dent of the American
Association of University
Women, and Walter Yo-
vaish, teacher and former
board member of the
Venice Art Center, also vol-
unteered.
The 367 scholarship re-
cipients come from Venice,
Nokomis, Osprey, North
Port and Englewood. These
young women and men go
forward with dreams and
goals knowing this com-
munity has faith in them,
thanks to the Gulf Coast
Community Foundation of
Venice Scholarship Pro-
gram donors who make it
possible.
