Foreclosed houses are an eyesore in neighborhoods and are dominating
real estate sales to the exclusion of other properties.



Foreclosures key



home-sale recovery


BY TERRY O'CONNOR
STAFF WRITER


Sales of Sarasota County
properties in foreclosure are fast
and furious, but otherwise the
county has a 17-month invento-
ry of homes and it's about to get
a lot fatter.
Foreclosures are so dominat-
ing Florida home sales they are
crowding out other sales op-
tions, such as building a home
or buying a previously owned
home, analysts say. And it's
going to get worse before it gets
better.
"The actual number of fore-
closures for sale is pretty low
right now because they are turn-
ing over pretty quickly," said
Arthur Broslat, a real estate ana-
lyst for RE/MAX. "A lot of buyers
are only looking at foreclosures
because they figure those are the
best deals."
Sarasota County had 6,183
single-family homes on the mar-
ket as of Friday. Broslat said the
718 sales in the last 60 days leave
a 17-month inventory of single-
family homes in the Sarasota
market. By contrast, he said, just
a four-month inventory of fore-
closures is available.


The Sarasota-Bradenton MLS
reports 415 foreclosures over the
last two months, which is only a
shower before the deluge, Bro-
slat said.
"A zillion more are in the
pipeline," Broslat said. "It's just
like an iceberg sort of thing."
Pricing lure
Florida will lose $1.5 trillion
- with a "T" in property val-
ues before the market finishes
stabilizing, Broslat said.
"That's a lot of money in a
state with a $600 billion annual
gross domestic product," he
said. "It will take at least a couple
years."
Clearing off the foreclosures
remains key to reigniting de-
mand for homes, Broslat said.
And increased demand is irre-
placeable in propping up sliding
home values.
"Things are going to bottom
out when the supply gets sucked
up and people start building
new houses," he said.
Until the glut of foreclosed
homes is sold, the pricing lure
will be too strong for bargain
hunters to ignore in a depressed

The Asian citrus psyllid is the culprit that transmits citrus greening, a dis-
ease that attacks orange and grapefruit trees.


Growers worried


about citrus disease


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Almost all of Florida's citrus
trees could be infected with the
world's most destructive citrus
disease in seven to 12 years.
That alarming prediction
comes from a team of scientists
at the University of Florida who
have been investigating the
problem.
The disease, which obstructs
the flow of nutrients in citrus


trees, first appeared in this coun-
try near Miami three years ago
and has since spread across the
state. It originated more than
100 years ago in southern China.
The Chinese call it "yellow
shoot disease." Florida's citrus
growers gave it the name of
"greening" because many fruits
remain green and are lopsided
and bitter. Infected trees die
within several years, according

Injunction sought over committee

action on airport consultant

NEWS EDITOR


As if to say, 'What is it you
don't get about taking action in
the open,' attorneys for Anthony

who is suing |
the city of

its use of e-

filed an

to undo a city committee's rank-

The motion reads "In August

"The meeting, required by

Gabriel Dickerson gives his mom a pat on the arm before she gives blood.

Red and white and seeking donors all over


BY ALISON POSNER

Christina Dickerson was run-
ning errands with her two chil-
dren, Gabriel, 3, and Myah, 1,
when she noticed the Big Red
Bus parked at Tiffany Square.
She quickly made a U-turn
and climbed aboard.
Once inside she took a seat
and got ready to donate blood.
Gabriel, who got a Spiderman
tattoo on his hand, gave his
mom a kiss and a pat on her


arm, making sure she was all
right.
Nearby, donor service spe-

Myah on her knee.
"We try our best to accom-

Dickerson took the time to
stop to donate blood despite the
fact she was in the middle of a

The reason?
"It's important," she said.
"You can save a life."

No more paid lunch at city hall


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Life is going to be different for
about 35 city employees once a
new union-management con-
tract goes into effect.
They've been getting paid,
apparently for years, for a 40-
hour week even though some
only work 37.5 hours. The affect-
ed employees received a paid
lunch period each day, while
others don't.
Now the city is saying it plans
to end the practice.
"Forty hours pay for 40 hours
worked" that was the man-
agement mantra during recent
contract negotiations with
members of the local American
Federation of State, County and
Municipal Employees, which
represents 120 of 295 city em-
ployees. It's one of four unions


that represent city staff.
Representatives for the city
and AFSCME spent hours last
week going over Article 6 of its
contract, which describes the
work week and work day. They
reworked contract language that
stipulates lunches are duty-free,
unpaid 30-minute meal periods
for all employees. They also clar-
ified that the work week not only
consists of 40 hours per week,
but 40 hours of work per week.
The three-year contract ex-
pired Sept. 30 but remains in
effect until a new one is ratified,
although either party can re-
quest termination by providing
10 days written notice. The new
contract will go into effect in a
few months and will likely be
retroactive to Oct. 1.
Payroll records
The issue of the 37.5 work


week came to the attention of
the city's negotiating team only a
few months ago when manage-
ment took a closer look at pay-
roll records. They noticed some
employees were being treated
differently than others when it
came to the number of hours
actually worked. A select group
of employees were not leaving
early, but some were being paid
during their lunch periods.
Union officials say it's been
going on for years.
Assistant City Manager Mary
Holcombe said she requested
the clerk's office research the
issue, but was unable to come
up with any written documenta-
tion that authorized employees
to receive a full 40 hours of pay
for working less than 40 hours.
The 40-hour work week is

North Port Plaza may emulate Ocala ER


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER

They call it a 12-mile
hallway.
It's the imaginary corri-
dor and real distance -
between the Emergency
Center at TimberRidge, a
freestanding emergency
room in Marion County,
and the much larger
Munroe Regional Medical
Center.
Doctors, nurses and
TimberRidge hospital staff
want to make patients feel
like being in the ER is the
same as being in the hos-
pital miles away.
"The reason people
would prefer a facility like
(TimberRidge) is, we call it
'no matter what, no matter
when,'" Sarasota Memorial
Hospital chief executive
officer Gwen MacKenzie
said. "They have the sup-
port of the entire medical
staff at Munroe Regional
behind them."
SMH officials say their
free-standing ER under
construction at North Port
Medical Plaza on Toledo
Blade Boulevard will have
similar staff support when
it opens next year.
The distance between
SMH and the Plaza is 26
miles. The figurative dis-
tance may seem much
greater.
Replica
North Port residents
have a variety of hospital
choices although
none within city limits.
But Sarasota Memorial
officials are confident
that SMH can become
their hometown hospital



Correction
An article in the Sept.
24 edition referred to a
Venice City Council pro-
ceeding as a pre-annex-
ation hearing, it was
actually a hearing on a
petition to rezone prop-
erty owned by Venice
Minerals, Tarmac, Apac
and Cemexto a city zon-
ing designation. Neigh-
bors complained to
council that Ajax has
operated at night; the
article identified anoth-
er company as the sub-
ject of the complaints.

Imaging Facility is under construction in North Port.


through the new ER.
"Much like Munroe,
we are the dominant pro-
vider throughout the four-
county area," SMH chief
operating officer Michael
Harrington said. "We have
found in our tests that if
patients have a choice,
two out of three times they
will choose us."
SMH officials and hospi-
tal board members toured
TimberRidge recently for
ideas on how a freestand-
ing ER will function in
North Port. About 24 peo-
ple made the trip, includ-
ing North Port city com-
missioners and Communi-
ty Health Action Team
members.
Opened six years ago,
TimberRidge was one of


the first freestanding ERs
in the state. It had 23,500
patients last year with
about 2,230 admitted to
the main hospital.
"It looks like a hospital,
acts like a hospital," Mac-
Kenzie said of Timber-
Ridge. "This is a replica of
what our facility will be
like."
Offsets
Vickie Sullivan, director
of Munroe Regional's
emergency department,
said the ER is "the best
thing that we have done to
offset some of the back-
flow and the wait times for
our main emergency
department downtown."
Freestanding ERs offer
more services than urgent-


care centers, Sullivan said.
Like TimberRidge, SMH
will have board-certified
emergencyphysicians avail-
able around the clock with
an imaging center and lab
assisting the ER.
"It was a very nice facil-
ity," said SMH emergency
physician Reuben W Hol-
land III. "We've learned a
lot from them and hope to
make ours even better."
With fewer patients,
TimberRidge sees people
more promptly than Mun-
roe's ER.
"People are very smart,"
said Frank C. Biondolillo,
Munroe chief of emer-
gency services. "They
realize they can be seen,
evaluated, admitted (at
TimberRidge) and trans-
ported downtown (to
Munroe) quicker than
they might be through the
front door of Munroe."
Committed
Like TimberRidge, the
"door-to-doc" time -
how long patients wait to
see a doctor should be
significantly less at the
Plaza than at SMH in
downtown Sarasota. The
average amount of time it
takes to admit or dis-
charge patients should be
significantly less as well.
Pediatric and trauma
patients are stabilized at


TimberRidge and then
transferred to the nearest
trauma center.
"That's exactly how
we will operate," said
SMH emergency physi-
cian William Colgate. "We
have to honor a patient's
request."
After the initial ER visit,
Harrington said patients
ask why they should
return to SMH. Do they
need follow-up exams or
more information? Should
they return for future
emergencies?
"There will be a
tremendous amount of
education with (North
Port) families," Harrington
said. "We are not only pro-
viding the hospital piece,
but now we are in your
community and we want
to be a part of that. Having
that visible, community-
based service" will make a
difference.


SMH emergency physi-
cians have agreed to
spend half their time at the
hospital in Sarasota, and
half in North Port. Holland
said he and the other
emergency physicians "are
very committed to this
project."
With a freestanding ER
under construction and
land purchased for a pos-
sible hospital years from
now on Sumter Boule-
vard, SMH officials say
they are poised to be
North Port's primary
health care provider.
"Our goal is to be a
health system," Harrington
said. "Inpatient is part of
what we do, outpatient is
part of what we do and pre-
vention is part of what we
do, because with technolo-
gy that's where health care
is going."

District 70 candidates debate


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

The Plantation Golf &
Country Club was the setting
Friday for a conversation
between District 70 State
Representative candidates Sam
Rosenfeld (D) and Doug Holder
(R).
The topics ranged from the
economy and drilling for oil in
the Gulf to the importance of
education.
Rosenfeld feels the Sarasota
County Commission should
play a bigger part in the eco-
nomic recovery.
"We need to work (with
them) on improving the busi-
ness environment right here in
Sarasota," he said, "because I
think the business leaders don't
think the environment is very
good at the present time."
Rosenfeld said it was time "to
look beyond the borders of the
county," to bring in solar and
high-tech companies.
"The economy of Florida can
no longer depend solely on
tourism and construction," he
said. "We need to broaden our
tax base."
Rosenfeld also suggested
implementing cap-and-trade, a
program that sets a maximum
limit on emissions. Companies
in the program receive emis-
sions allowances, limited by the


cap, and then design their own
compliance strategies to meet
overall reduction requirements,
such as sale or purchase of those
allowances.
Holder's answer was rather
simple: Stop raising taxes.
"The people in the state of
Florida are so stressed out finan-
cially right now that we've got to
make sure that they're the ones
we pay attention to," he said,
adding that it was important to
give incentives in the form of tax
breaks to local businesses while
encouraging out-of-state busi-
nesses to relocate here.
"We've got to diversify our
economy," he said. "And we've
got to stop increasing taxes -
lower taxes and make sure your
money is spent by you and stays
in your pocket."
Offshore drilling
On this touchy subject, the
candidates were diverse.
"I do believe we'll end up
drilling in our Gulf," Holder said.
"I think it's just a matter of time."
Holder said it's important to
reduce our dependence on for-
eign oil, suggesting instead "we
use our own oil in our refineries
and that way we'll reduce (that
dependency), which will keep
our dollars from getting into the
hands of those that hate us."
Rosenfeld, opposed to the
idea, pointed out that 80 percent


of leases oil companies present-
ly hold are sitting unused.
"If everybody's interested in
getting more fuel, let's set up
a 'use it or lose it' policy,"
Rosenfeld said. "If you don't drill
on your leases within a set peri-
od of time, you lose them. There
are other companies out there
willing to pick up those leases
and start to drill now."
Education
The dropout rate is almost 33
percent in Florida, said a final
questioner. Where would the
money come from to make edu-
cation better here?
Holder chose to focus on Pine
View, which he described as
"one of the top five schools in
the nation," the only so-called
"gifted" school in Florida.
"We fought very hard in the
Legislature to continue the
funding for (this school)," he
said.
Education must not be
viewed as an expense, but as an
investment, Rosenfeld said.
"It's an investment in our
children's future," he said. "It's
an investment in our communi-
ties. The education in Sarasota
County is good. The education
system in the rest of the state is
not. The cornerstone of eco-
nomic freedom is education."

Supreme Court OKs


bonds for local projects


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


The Florida Supreme Court
has ruled in favor of tax incre-
ment financing, a decision that
has major ramifications for
southern Sarasota County, which
has major problems with storm-
water run-off.
The high court's ruling means
that community redevelopment
area projects can now be funded
without requiring voter approval.
The philosophy behind TIF-
funded projects such as
roads, schools and other enter-
prises that benefit the public -
is that they increase property
values in distressed or underde-
veloped areas where new build-
ing might not otherwise occur.
This in turn generates more tax
revenue with which the bonds
are repaid.
Sarasota County Commission
Chair Shannon Staub said she is
energized by the news, but cau-
tioned that the present econom-
ic climate dictates a frugal
approach to bonding TIF-fund-
ed projects.
"That hurdle is gone, but we
don't want to go out and try to
bond (right away)," Staub said.
"Now we need to see what our
capacity to borrow will be. You've
got to be very conservative in


your estimates, because we don't
know how much revenues are
going to drop next year."
Englewood's stalled stormwa-
ter removal project, a vault sys-
tem estimated at around $6.4
million, was originally first in
line for TIF funding. However, a
recent sea change in the think-
ing of town officials could result
in a low-impact development
solution to the problem. That
could free up TIF money to fund
other CRA projects such as the
burial of overhead utilities ($1.5
million) and a town center park-
ing expansion ($7.7 million), for
example.
Englewood's low-impact devel-
opment proposal employs care-
ful site design and decentralized
stormwater management such
as green roofs, bio-retention,
porous surfaces and pavements
to reduce the environmental
footprint of new growth.
"I think what's going to hap-
pen with the CRA is that we're
looking for a conceptual plan to
try to apply low impact develop-
ment (in Englewood)," Staub
said. "We'll try to see how it
would work and maybe we won't
have to go with stormwater
vaults to the level that we had
first planned."

WORDS WORTH
HEARING


By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. I regularly use ear
plugs at work to protect
my hearing from the loud
machine noises. At my
last hearing test, they told
me my hearing was
getting worse. What's
going on? Aren't ear
plugs supposed to prevent
this from happening?
A. Hearing protection
comes with a NRR or noise
reduction rating. Some
types of hearing protection
have higher NRRs than
other types. Most
importantly, though, is the
fact that these rating are an
average and no one person
is guaranteed this much
protection. The protection
you receive from your plugs
could be more or less than
this average and the only
way to know for sure is to
have your Audiologist
perform measures directly
on your ears and your
plugs. The ear canal is a
dynamic environment
which moves when you turn
your head or open your
mouth to speak. These
movements effect the
quality of the seal that your
hearing protection provides
and can diminish the
effectiveness by as much as
20 dB. If you think you are
protecting your hearing by
simply using hearing
protection you are
mistaken. Before you can
be sure your hearing is
adequately protected, you
must have measurements
performed by your
Audiologist to insure the
hear ing protection you are
using is giving you
sufficient NRR for your
working environment. To
have your hearing
protection properly
evaluated, contact the
Audiologists at Woodmere
Hearing and Balance
Centers, Inc. at 941-492-
4327 (HEAR) to schedule
an appointment today.

As far
as your
neck is con-
cerned, holding your
head up takes a great deal
of effort. The neck must be
able to bend, turn, and twist
while supporting 10-12
pounds (the weight of the
average adult head). As a result,
neck muscles often develop
painful kinks. As with back pain,
neck pain may have no readily
identifiable cause; however, poor
posture is usually the culprit. If you
habitually thrust your neck or chin
forward or tilt your head to one side,
your muscles may start aching
under the strain. Awkward head
and neck positions for prolonged
periods may also play a role. A
chiropractic evaluation can
identify improper posture and
harmful habits that may be
causative factors.

Commission candidates address South County issues


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

The candidates for the
District 1 seat on the
Sarasota County Commis-
sion Democrat Jono
Miller, Republican
Carolyn Mason and inde-
pendent John Mullarkey
- have responded to a
series of questions that
are of major interest to
South County voters.

Do you support construc-
tion of a new jail in South
County? If so, should it be in
North Port?
Miller: It definitely
needs to be in South
County and probably
needs to be in North Port.
I don't have expertise on
the availability of land,
but the public defender's
office is really top heavy in
the northern part of the
county. They are going to
have to build additional
jail facilities. Since some
of the crime happens in
South County, forcing
people to come to North
County to (book and jail
criminals) doesn't seem to
be optimal. But I can't tell
you right now where the
money's going to come
from to pay for it.
Mason: I don't know if
there is sufficient evi-
dence to warrant a South
County jail. If that evi-
dence isn't there, we
should have community
meetings to find out the
will of the people. I would
need to see a feasibility
study, because in North
County there are far too
many nonviolent offend-
ers housed in that jail. I
think the public defend-
er's office, the state attor-
ney's office and the sheriff
ought to work together
with the South County
communities and try to
work out a way to get
those nonviolent offend-
ers placed in programs
that are going to address
their issues.
Mullarkey: If the peo-
ple of North Port want a
new jail, fine. Let's put it
down there. I have no
problem with that. But I
don't think the county is
in any position to spend
$100 million on a new jail.
And it's not just the cost of


building a new jail, it's the
cost of operating it. You
can't spend the $100 mil-
lion now.

What are the options for
funding River Road improve-
ments in the future?
Miller: It's great to have
the engineering done (for
the northernmost section
of the road), but appar-
ently growth didn't pay for
itself because we don't
have the money to build
it. The good news is we
seem to have agreement
on the U.S. 41-River Road
intersection. I am open to
suggestions, but right now
it looks like this project
may depend on federal
funding and it is not at
the top of the list. And it
doesn't matter how many
thousands of cars we can
get to River Road and 1-75
if it's not clear which way
they're turning or if the
road's already jammed.
We may need to look at
other solutions (besides
an evacuation route).
Mason: I've heard from
residents in North Port
and Englewood that River
Road needs to be
improved. The funding is
going to be a challenge,


especially in these eco-
nomic times, which are
tough for everybody.
North Port, Englewood
and Sarasota County are
all going to have to look at
some innovative ways for
funding, such as the fed-
eral government and
money from the private
sector. I don't know what
those would be, but ...
this is a major evacuation
route (and) it could be
very costly if we had a cat-
astrophic event. It could
cost lots of lives.
Mullarkey: I'd like to
know where all the impact
fees from the construc-
tion of new development
on North River Road
went, instead of River
Road. Where did all the
impact fees that (develop-
er) Lennar paid go? They
should have gone to
improving River Road.
The dime falls on the
county commissioners
and the North Port City
Commission as well. Now,
Lennar has thousands of
home sites yet to be
developed. They're going
to pay impact fees on
that. All that money
should go right to River
Road. For additional

funds, how about money
from the recently passed
$300 million bond issue?
Maybe some of the
money could go to River
Road as well.

Is the State Road 776 Corri-
dor Plan working?
Miller: It's a very ambi-
tious plan filled with
dozens of amenities and
features (that) planners
and citizens like, so I
imagine progress must
seem slow. Because it is so
ambitious and money so
tight, I support a reality
check to prioritize the
most crucial and feasible
projects.
Mason: One of the
questions I have about it
is why is there such a big
requirement (offices
and apartments with lim-
ited neighborhood com-
mercial uses set back) 50
feet from the road. Why is
(the set back) so big? Why
is it not smaller? That
might get in the way of
redevelopment along
there.
Mullarkey: I'm 100 per-
cent for (the corridor
plan). That's just common
sense on future planning,
as long as you don't


destroy existing neighbor-
hoods. And I would look
to make developers com-
ply with it.

*What can we do to improve
industrial development in South
County?
Miller: I think the
county paid for a study
that recommended more
intense use of existing
Major Employment
Center zoning. Some of
the other impediments
exist at the state level. And
you can't do planning for
South Sarasota County
without integrating what's
happening in Charlotte
County and the Cape
Haze Peninsula. There
could be traffic impacts
for both counties, so I
think that whole region
needs to be looked at
coherently and not like
there's a dotted line on the
county line.
Mason: There's going
to have to be a connec-
tion with the chambers of
commerce, with the resi-
dents and with Sarasota
County government to
come up with a way to
make it appealing to
developers for that kind of
endeavor. Bureaucratic


red tape prohibits
(progress). Maybe the
municipalities and the
county could look at
those processes, work
with the folks from the
community, making
those a lot more user-
friendly and at the same
time work for those gov-
ernment bodies. It can be
done, but it's going to
have to take a spirit of
getting together and see-
ing how it can work for
everybody.
Mullarkey: We have to
go after businesses and
woo them and bring them
here. And the county
needs to get out of the
way. To get a company
that wants to come in
here, you don't make
them jump through a year
and a half and several mil-
lion dollars' (worth of
hoops), filled with
expenses and time, in
your permitting process.
If it's a good project and
it's going to generate long-
term jobs and it's going to
improve the tax base, then
you streamline the
process. You cut the red
tape.

market, he said.
Panicked or cash-
strapped sellers continue
deflating the market. This is
illustrated by the feeding
frenzy going on in Rotonda,
Broslat said.
"One buyer bought eight
lots in PineValley andWhite
Marsh for $22,500 apiece,"


he said. "Rotonda Sands,
Rotonda Lakes and Roton-
da Meadows have seen
sales at prices under $5,000.
If you sell now, you're going
to get ripped off."
Broslat advises sellers to
hold off putting their
homes on the market if at
all possible.

Blood Centers spokesper-
son Larry Ganz said there
is always a need for certain
types of blood.
"It's a constant need
without being an emer-
gency," he said.
Ganz said that only 4 to
5 percent of the public
routinely gives blood.
Thomas Scalley is one
of that handful of people
who donate regularly.
Scalley said that, in fact,
he usually stops to donate
whenever he spots the Big
Red Bus.
"Usually every eight
weeks," he said. "We all
need to help others out
that need help with surg-
eries or other trauma. It's a
good feeling to help peo-
ple out."
Carolyn Dodson, an-
other regular blood donor,
also stopped in Monday to
give blood.
"I give as often as I can,"
she said. "I try to give every
60 days.
"There are so many
older folks that can't give
blood and it's a gift of life.
You hope you never need
it, but you may."

Sole providers
Florida's Blood Center is
the sole provider of blood
for Venice Regional Med-


ical Center, Englewood
Community Hospital, Faw-
cett Memorial Hospital,
Peace River Regional Med-
ical Center and Charlotte
Regional Medical Center.
The centers receive
about 1,500 pints of do-
nated blood a day and
serve more than 70 hospi-
tals in 21 counties state-
wide, Ganz said.
Center staff try to make
the process as comfortable
as possible for donors.
Dickerson, for example,
was escorted through the
donation process, which
included filling out paper-
work, going through a
short interview with donor
specialists and getting an
oatmeal cookie and a glass
of cranberry juice.
"I only had a power
shake for breakfast," she
said as she eyed the cook-
ie. "I guess I'll start my diet
tomorrow."
Eating substantially
and drinking enough flu-
ids is important when
donating blood, said Mi-
chael Del Sole, a donor
service specialist.
Donors are also provid-
ed with a medication list to
make sure they are healthy
enough to donate.

already clearly delineated
in contract language, City
Attorney Bob Anderson
said last week.
Statewide AFSCME rep-
resentative Mike Temple
agreed, and characterized
the "past practice" as a
"management problem"
since current contract lan-
guage is clear employ-
ees must work the full 40-
hour week to earn 40
hours of pay.
Managers in nearly all
city departments have
been allowing an estimat-
ed 35 hourly administra-
tive staff those not out
in the field to receive a
paid lunch period, con-
firmed Alan Bullock, direc-
tor of administrative ser-
vices.
The two sides agree the
issue needs to be handled


sensitively.
Union officials asked
for, and received, assur-
ances the city would not
seek back pay from the
affected employees.
The 35 staff members
involved work mostly at
city hall, and will be re-
quested to work the addi-
tional 2.5 hours of work
per week once the new
contract is ratified by both
the city council and union
members.
Holcolmbe said it's like-
ly the city and union will
agree to some kind of
grace period yet to be
negotiated. She offered a
month's reprieve while
union officials suggested a
90-day grace period.
The bargaining teams
meet again Oct. 15.

young, vigorous trees attract
such pests.
To save the state's $9 bil-

Summary of the Lawsuit
A class action lawsuit entitled Access Now, Inc., et al. v.
Ambulatory Surgery Center Group, Ltd., et al., Case No. 99-
0109-CIV-GARBER, is currently pending in the United States
District Court for the Southern District of Florida involving
disability access at the facilities of Sarasota Doctor's Hospital,
Inc. ("Medical Center"). The complaint alleges on behalf of
all disabled individuals, including individuals with mobility,
visual, or hearing impairments, that the Medical Center is in
violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act and its
implementing regulations. The complaint alleges that the
Medical Center has failed to provide equal access for persons
with disabilities to the Medical Center's facilities, because
numerous physical, communication, structural, and program
barriers exist at the Medical Center. The Medical Center has
denied these allegations. By entering into a settlement of this
action, the Medical Center does not admit or imply that it
engaged in any wrongful action or inaction, or damages or
injured anyone in any fashion.
This lawsuit has been certified by the Court as a class action.
The Named Plaintiffs serve as class representatives, and their
counsel are Miguel M. de la O and David E. Marko of the law
firm de la O, Marko, Magolnick & Leyton. Those lawyers
serve as counsel for the class. The Medical Center is
represented by Pedro Forment of the law firm Ford & Harrison
LLP.
Definition of the Class
You are a member of the class if you are an individual with any
type of disability whatsoever, and seek, have sought, or will
seek access to or use of any facility of Medical Center.
Summary of Proposed Settlement
The named plaintiffs and the Medical Center have reached a
proposed settlement of this class action lawsuit as to the
Medical Center. The United States District Court has
preliminarily approved that settlement, although the Court has
made no findings and offers no opinion with respect to the
merits of the settlement. The proposed settlement provides in
substances that the Medical Center will make modifications
and alterations to its Facilities, including public restrooms,
paths of travel, parking, and other public areas within the
facilities, with the express purpose of improving and/or
providing equal access to and usability of the Facilities by
persons with disabilities. No money damages are to be paid to
members of the class.
Procedures Concerning the Settlement
Court Hearing. On December 5, 2008, at 10:00 a.m., the
court will hold a hearing at the United States District Court,
Southern District of Florida, Courtroom Four, 10th Floor, 99
N.E. 4th Street, Miami, Florida 33132, to determine whether
the proposed settlement agreement is fair and reasonable and
should be given Final Approval, and to consider the application
of Named Plaintiffs' counsel for attorneys' fees and costs.
Objections to the Settlement. If you believe the Court should
not approve the settlement, you may advise the Court of your
objections and a special hearing will be scheduled on a date to
be determined by the Court. To be considered by the Court,
however, any objections to the final approval of the settlement

ranking for your approval.
This process is required to
be publicly noticed and
generally requires 30-45
days to complete," Black
wrote.
The evaluation com-
mittee's failure to give no-
tice of the Aug. 21 "secret
meeting" to rank candi-
dates is a violation of the
Sunshine Law, according
to the motion.
Council ranked the can-
didates and selected its
finalist at a meeting on
Sept. 8.

Trial date set
On Sept. 26 12th Circuit
Court Judge Robert Ben-
nett held another hearing
on the Sunshine suit. He
set Dec. 1 as the trial date.
Bennett chastised at-
torneys for defendants
Mayor Ed Martin and
Council Member John
Simmonds for failing to
provide the court ordered
copies of public records e-
mails by a September
deadline. He gave them an
additional 16 days to com-
ply.
Attorneys argued they
shouldn't have to pay for
the forensics experts it
would take to complete
the task. Bennett made it
clear: Martin and Sim-
monds will pay.
The judge also dismiss-
ed a motion by Lorenzo's
attorney Andrea Mogen-
sen to find Simmonds in
contempt for missing the
deadline.
And he denied the city's
motion to dismiss the suit.

Liaisons subpoenaed
Candidate for city
council Seat 2, Tom "Kit"
McKeon, is one of four
people Mogensen has sub-
poenaed for acting as go-
betweens for council
members to circumvent
the Sunshine Open Meet-
ings Law.
Mogensen filed the
third-party subpoenas on
McKeon, a planning com-
mission member, Jim Leis,
budget oversight commit-
tee member, Jim Marble,
former airport advisory
board member, and Mike
Rafferty, who helped draft
the controversial airport
layout plan.
"We've decided we want
to seek production directly
from e-mail providers (like
AOL or Yahoo) so we can
make sure there is a com-
plete production, to the
extent they still have them,
to avoid claims of dele-
tions," said a representa-
tive from Mogensen's
office.
Bennett found the sub-
poenas overly broad and
ordered them narrowed
before considering them
again. He also stipulated
the city attorney should
get the first shot at review-
ing e-mails to protect per-
sonal information from
being introduced into evi-
dence.
More subpoenas are
anticipated.

OUR VIEW


Take our recommendations for what they're worth


O ne of the most popular parts of
our newspaper is the letters to
the editor we publish on this
page and sometimes the next one.
The location and content of those let-
ters is not accidental. We try to give as
many readers as much leeway as possible
with as much exposure for their views as
we can because we believe your views are
just as important as ours. Taken together,
all of those viewpoints constitute what
we hope is a lively and beneficial discus-
sion of important issues in our commu-
nity and our country.
Each election season we get a few let-
ters taking us to task for recommending
candidates for public office. We wanted
to take this opportunity to anticipate
and acknowledge those views, but
defend our small role in the electoral


process.
Newspaper recommendations of
candidates for public office are as old as
the institution itself. While some read-
ers, candidates and their supporters
oppose our role or any newspaper's role
in elections, we believe newspapers
play an important role in the process
and will continue to make recommen-
dations.
We want to be as transparent as pos-
sible about how recommendations are
made. This is how it works.
Members of our editorial board meet
with candidates for public office and
discuss the candidates' backgrounds
and many of the issues pertinent to that
office. Based on those interviews and
our collective knowledge of the issues
and candidates through personal expe-


rience and our news reporting, we offer
our readers brief thoughts on each can-
didate and our reasons for recommend-
ing one over another (or others.)
We believe all candidates for public
office are performing a vital function of
self-governance and often express our
appreciation both personally and in our
recommendations. But we think we
would be remiss if we did not also try to
give readers the benefit of our collective
experience covering and commenting
on local government and the access to
the candidates we have that they may
not.
We give our readers considerable
credit for their ability to process input
on candidates from a variety of sources,
including friends, media reports and
first-hand interactions at forums and


public meetings.
We also understand that some readers
trust our judgment and give our recom-
mendations significant weight as they
make up their minds. We do not take this
responsibility lightly, but we're skeptical
that an endorsement from us can affect
the outcome of an election except possi-
ble in an unusually close race. Plenty of
candidates who lost despite our endorse-
ment can testify to that.
We understand that this may not
change someone's mind about our
endorsement policy, but we think it's
important for readers to know we take
their input seriously. We take elections
just as seriously and because of that we
will continue to make recommenda-
tions to encourage candidates to partic-
ipate and voters to cast ballots.


Is there a better way?


BOB VEDDER

Our city and county
governments follow a state
procedure for acquiring
consultants that I find
lacking. I don't fault the
officials but rather the law
that establishes the proce-
dure.
The city, for instance,
brought in firms to learn
about their qualifications
to be our airport consul-
tant. Three replied; the
previous one we used,
MEA, opted not to be
involved.
The presenters champi-
oned their qualifications
and experience and told
why their company was
the one to pick. They spent
some time tying their
experience to the project.
One, for instance, men-
tioned how the city was
interested in a control
tower, which instantly lost
it any chance of considera-
tion.
From those rough pre-
sentations council picked
the one it wanted to go
with. The favorite was DY
Services. We now are going
to develop for DY the
scope of work to be done
so we can get a price from
it and then negotiate a
final deal.
To me, that is putting
the government entity -
the city, in this case at a
disadvantage. The winner
knows it has been picked
and likely can get more
money from the city than
if the city would have pro-
duced a detailed specifica-
tion of work and bid it out.
There have been a lot of
high numbers quoted in
the press from city council
and staff members and
others and that likely will
make the price higher than
it could have been. With
bidding, we would give the
citizens the best deal.
We bid all other con-
tracts to get the best deal,
why not consultants? I
hope our state legislators
will help change or give
more flexibility in this
statute.

By's Crack: I voted
for change and by golly,
after the new taxes,
change is about all that
is left.


Well, September came
and went and the Noko-
mis Thruway and Skyway
that were to be finished are
not done. Of course, they
were to be done last March
and before that last fall.
Let's hope it gets done
by Jan. 1. Crews are work-
ing weekends and nights,
so it could happen. When
it's finished it will be sad
not having any roadwork
going on.

We put a correction in
about the fact I mentioned
Ruth Jelks as the person
donating the Jelks Pre-
serve; rather, she was a
great, very long-standing
teacher in Venice, now
retired.
******
Today is the 100th an-
niversary of the Model T.
There were 79,000 cars
registered before Ford
started production on it
and by 1925 there were
more than 20 million vehi-
cles registered.

It was 64 years ago this
week that a group of 400
Chinese aviators came to
Venice to train at the Ven-
ice Army Air Base during
the war.

Claude Lewis, our for-
mer sports editor who
passed away a week ago
Friday, was going to have
his life celebrated at the
Gondolier Sun this Satur-
day but tragically there
was another death in the
Lewis family. There will be
a service later on.
******
We should be glad we
aren't in Tennessee and
North Carolina.
While I was there two
weeks ago, and even now,
there was a huge run on
gas due to Hurricane Ike,
which caused price-goug-
ing and very long lines.

For the months March
through August we were 5
inches ahead of average
rainfall yet for the full year
we're just about even.
******
It is great to see MCC
going for a four-year de-
gree program. The process
will take a couple of years
and there is no guarantee,
but with the college's spe-
cialty programs, such as its
nursing program, that
could be a great plus.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS



How far back do you want to go?


Editor:
Where were you all 12 years ago. Venice? I doubt it
because you would have remembered that the Venice
Theatre was indeed a little theater with a seating capaci-
ty of 286, and looking a lot like an old-fashioned gas sta-
tion.
The only mural was a controversial effort by the then
Tomato Patch Restaurant on the right side of its drive-
through. There was no park on the east side of Venice
Little Theatre but an attached pub and restaurant,
Storming Norman's and the Wedgewood.
There were no fancy banners and street lights. The
north and south bridges were two lane and the north
bridge was much lower. There was no kiosk downtown,
and more important, almost no sidewalk dining. (The
naysayers didn't want to destroy our small-town flavor.)
And that's just a sampling, as there were a lot more
negatives that were overcome. We've come a long way,
baby, despite the naysayers. The old-time flavor of our
town lies on Tampa, Miami and West Venice avenues,
not city council.
Without growth to support these businesses and
progress, empty shop windows will become the norm,
and then you can let the wake begin.


McCain is the
only choice
Editor:
Each one of us is mold-
ed by the time we are 3
years old our needs and

mined and established.
Barack Obama's first
three years were not the
"norm," which makes him
a difficult person to under-
stand. Who is the real
Obama?
It is obvious that Oba-
ma is a driven man. He
does not converse, he
preaches. Obama could
easily follow into the foot-
steps of his longtime men-

each of them can arouse
many with their preach-
ing.

For trash pick-up, once is enough


Too much. Fifty thousand bucks on a study to deter-
mine if we should have once a week or twice a week trash
pickup? I can't believe that we don't have a mayor and a
city council that has enough backbone to say, "OK, forget
about the mechanical arms and the new garbage cans,
let's go to once a week pickup." That definitely will save
money. Forget about the extra equipment. Come on,
that's an obvious decision that the council and the
mayor should make. Go!


Sightseeing. The Re-
publican nominee for vice
president says that from
one place in Alaska, she
can see Russia. This was in
reply to a question about
her foreign policy experi-
ence. Does she realize that
what she was seeing in
Russia was just mountains
or a fishing village? The
center of power in Russia
is in the Kremlin in Mos-
cow, many, many thou-
sands of miles away. I once
lived in Boston on Beacon
Hill, and from my apart-
ment, I could see the state
capitol building, but I nev-
er felt that that qualified
me to be the lieutenant
governor of Massachu-
setts, one heartbeat away
from being the governor of
Massachusetts.
Penalized. I was just
reading theVenice paper on
Sunday afternoon where
Coach Peacock is not
pleased with his team. I'm
glad to hear that. When I
see that the team was
penalized 85 yards and
some because they are run-
ning with their mouths, I
can understand it. What I
have seen at the Venice
High School is that there's a
big discipline problem with
the team because they do


not know when to go out
there and do their job. I see
a lot of celebration, a lot of
mouthing. I know this goes
on on the field, but not to
the extent that I've seen it
this year. The boys just need
to be coached well on
offense and defense, and
maybe this what Peacock
and his coaches need to
look at. I see this as a disci-
pline problem and a coach-
ing problem because these
boys are not pro ballplayers
yet. They're just high school
players, and they only play
as well as they're coached.
So Coach Peacock, I hope
you take this for what it's
worth. Talk to your boys,
and tell them just to go out
there, do their jobs, keep
their mouths shut and
come back to the sidelines
when they're not suppose
to be on the field. I enjoy the
games and go to all the
games, but I'm not happy
with them this year. It's the
same thing week after
week.
Groupies. I never real-
ized how naive I was. Here
I thought our slow-growth
city council was concern-
ed about the homes and
the runway safety zone at
the airport. I thought the
FAA was demanding that


these homes be removed.
Not really so. City council
can exempt them. City
council doesn't want to
take the responsibility for
its actions. They want
somebody else to do it.
They're so busy trying to
get rid of the airport, these
people don't matter. They
seem more interested in
getting rid of the airplane
noise so they don't have
their cocktails and conver-
sations interrupted. Never
mind the income the air-
port brings into the city of
Venice, who needs it?
We've got plenty of money.
There's the slow-growth
angle. If you look real hard,
you can see that they've
done nothing and stopped
nothing. Growth in Venice
has stopped because no-
thing is going on. We've
also got a group of board
member groupies involv-
ed here. Folks, it's time to
take the city back and get
moving.
Goosed. It's hilarious.
Little Miss Sunshine Andrea
Mogensen, attorney, trying
to get $100,000 from the city
of Venice, is upset because
her offer to settle became
public. It's like trying to say,
what's good for the goose is
good for the gander.
Dems to blame. The
House and Senate have
been controlled by Demo-
crats for almost two years.
Direct responsibility for
oversight of the failed sav-
ings and loan institutions,
Fannie and Freddie, rest
with this body. Where were
they?


Bright Futures works fine


ROBIN STBLEN
GUEST COLUMNIST


A recent editorial in the
Gondolier Sun suggests that
the Florida Bright Futures
program works "too well."
What do theywant to do to a
government program that
actually works? Change it!
They believe that because it
is so successful and that en-
rollment in several of our
most popular state colleges
must be capped that there is
a problem.
Bright Futures is an excel-
lent program that rewards
hard work and outstanding
effort equally. Depending on
the student's achievement it
rewards him or her with
either 75 or 100 percent of
tuition only. That is a frac-
tion of the cost of higher
education. The student is
still responsible for food,
books, clothing, dormitory
or apartment, transporta-
tion and many other items
throughout the school year.
The Gondolier Sun be-
lieves that standards should
remain the same and that a
student's needs be factored
into the process. This is
wrong. There are thousands
of scholarships and grants
for students in need. Do an
Internet search and you will
find a government site where
a student and his or her par-
ent's income are submitted


to determine if a student is
eligible for financial aid.
The beauty of this pro-
gram is that every single stu-
dent has the same opportu-
nity for success. Every stu-
dent is rewarded based on
individual effort. To suggest
that every student receive
$500 and the rest be decided
on need is a slap in the face
to every hard-working stu-
dent. This program looks at
results only. It is color-blind,
it is gender neutral and it is
unbiased.
My son received 100 per-
cent from Bright Futures. I
witnessed his hard work and
effort to succeed. Like many
other students he took Dual
Enrollment, Advanced Place-
ment and Honors courses in
order to prepare for his fu-
ture and to receive Bright Fu-
tures dollars. My daughter
is currently on the same
course.
They and thousands of
other students stay up all
night doing class work. They
give up social functions in
order to excel in their class-
es. They have assignments
to complete during their
summer vacation. They are
required to perform com-
munity service. All of these
students make a commit-
ment to the program and
the state must fulfill its com-


SUN NEWSPAPERS 9A


just as it is

mitment to these students.
There is another matter
that bothers me concerning
the "need" factor. Most stu-
dents begin their college
career at the age of 18. Inthe
eyes of the law they are con-
sidered adults. They can
vote, enlist in the military,
purchase a home, rent an
apartment and enter into
any contract. Yet when it
comes to "need," their par-
ent's income is considered.
Why in only this situation
does society believe they are
still dependent children?
What is the solution to
the shortfall of funds in
Bright Futures? The pro-
gram can raise the stan-
dards for students. It could
reduce funding in other pro-
grams. It could do a combi-
nation of the two. However,
these changes must not
affect the students who have
already begun high school.
I have another idea. Every
election cycle, candidates for
office from the dog catcherto
the president talk about the
children and their education.
I suggest that 5 percent of
every single campaign be
given to Bright Futures to
support higher education.
It is time to walk the walk
and tax the candidates for a
change.

Baugher, local minister, dies OBITUARIES


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER


It was a match made in
Pompano Beach that grew
and blossomed in North
Port.
He was a World War II
veteran and Methodist
minister, serving in south-
ern Illinois before moving
to Florida. She was the
daughter of a bandleader,
a recent resident of north-
ern Illinois and accus-
tomed to moving from
town to town.
Each had three children
- two girls and a boy, ages
3-15 from previous 16-
year marriages that had
ended recently in divorce
for both.
The Rev. James W "Jim"
Baugher (pronounced "Boy-
er"), of Venice, who died
Sept. 14, met his future
wife, Judy, in 1971 at a
social for adult singles at
First Baptist Church in
Pompano Beach. They saw
each other six weeks later
and he got her name and
phone number.
"It wasn't love at first
sight for me. It was love at
first sight for him, appar-
ently. It took me about a
week," she said, laughing,
on Friday.
On the day of their first
date dinner at Mor-
rison's Cafeteria he
learned he was being
transferred to Trinity Unit-
ed Methodist Church in
North Port. So she knew he
had job security.
"We just hit it off and
were married three
months later (Aug. 21,
1971)," she said.
Against her mother's -
and his sister's loving
counsel the band-
leader's daughter quit her
job as a junior accountant,
packed her bags again,
married the minister and
they moved to North Port.
Along with four of their
children, the Baughers
started a new life together.
Jim was the pastor
Trinity until 1978, a long
time in one place for itin-
erant Methodist ministers
in those days. She worked
first in Port Charlotte, then
in Venice. Over the ensu-
ing years, various combi-
nations of their children
lived at their home in
North Port.
"The hardest part was
the children because they
weren't used to living" in a
small town, Judy said.
They kids rode the bus to
Englewood Elementary
School, Lemon Bay Junior
High and Venice High
School, "and there was
absolutely nothing to do
there. The sidewalks rolled
up at 6 o'clock at night.
Everything that did go on
happened either in Eng-
lewood or Venice."
A civic-minded Kiwan-
ian, Jim ran for a seat on the
Sarasota County School
Board in 1974. The out-
come surprised everyone.
"We had no representa-
tion in North Port," Judy
said. "We had no school.
We were ignored by Sara-
sota County (govern-
ment). Talk about a step-
child. North Port was the
stepchild of Sarasota
County."
North Port needed
young leaders at that time,
and Jim was in his 40s
when he ran for office.
During the Republican
primary, he touted his mil-
itary service, six years of
teaching experience and
his past work with the
North Port Civic Associ-
ation. And he won the pri-
mary, defeating radio per-
sonality Dick Doudna of
Venice, by a large margin.
When he was looking at
the newspaper to see how
he fared in each precinct,
Jim discovered that he did
not live in the district in
which he ran.
"He kind of turned
pale," Judy said.


This was news to Jim, to
Doudna and to the Sara-
sota County Supervisor of
Elections, "who also
thought North Port was in


District 5," Judy said. "What
had happened was the
school district had redis-
tricted" and put the Baug-
hers' District 5 North Port
neighborhood in District 3.
For two weeks his name
was in the headlines, Judy
said: "They wanted him to
move to Venice."
As a pastor of a North
Port church, Jim said his
first priority was to the
church. So he pulled out of
the race, and Doudna
moved up and won the
general election and the
school board seat.
Jim was upset, but he
didn't complain.
"One thing it did ... the
location of that church is
kind of hidden," Judy said.
"All the sudden everybody
knew where the church
was, and the church grew
like crazy.
"I said to him many
times, 'What would you
have done if you had won?
How would you have ever
had time to serve?' "
Jim, a tenor, was also a
noted singer. People came
from Englewood and Port
Charlotte to hear him per-
form his annual Christmas
singing sermon, which
included standards plus
some lyrics he wrote.
"It was very well re-
ceived," Judy said.
The Baughers left North
Port in 1978 and served
churches in Coral Gables,
Cocoa Beach, Orlando,
Winter Garden and Merritt
Island before they retired
to Venice in 1993.
Jim then joined the Ro-
tary Club of Venice and
went on staff at Trinity as a
visiting pastor until late
1997, when he perma-
nently retired. He lived at
Manor Care in Venice until
his death.
Judy tearfully reflected
that she wanted people to
remember that Baugher
"loved the Lord and that
his ministry was the most
important thing in his life.
It really came before fami-
ly."

Jeffrey Lyn Saal,
age 61, of Nokomis,
Fla., passed away
Tuesday, Sept. 23,
2008, inVenice, Fla.
He was born in Mil-

PUTTIN' ON THE RITZ
The Education & Business Development Committee is pleased to recognize a
Chamber business that has given back time and again to the organizations
networking and sponsored activities. They are to be lauded as well for community
service achievements.
In recognizing today's Business of the Month recipient, a Chamber member
praised Puttin' on the Ritz for it's cordiality When I walked into the salon, it was
evident that the staff was very friendly and caring with their warm greeting. The
family friendly aura continued through my appointment for hair styling and facial
services. I have recommended Puttin' on the Ritz to many friends and they have
echoed my sentiments."

Puttin' on the Ritz has a strong commitment to community welfare. Salon
staffers have donated countless hours to Our Mother's House, Student Shelter
for Homeless and St. Francis Animal Shelter over the years. They have contrib-
uted hairstyling and make up for area fashion shows for charitable groups fund
raising efforts as a gift. Their out reach includes area youth by donating haircuts
to St. Mark's preschool children. Puttin' on the Ritz salon staffers are regulars at
Chamber events sponsoring tabletop displays often at the Business After Five
networking events.

Puttin' on the Ritz is located at 530 US Hwy 41 Bypass S,
Ste: 14A in Venice.

THE WAY TO YOUR PET'S HEART
IS THROUGH THERE TEETH
Dental disease is an all too frequently overlooked malady
that commonly occurs in our pets. Although considered
by many to be insignificant, the impact on your pet's
quality of life and longevity is dramatic. As with
humans, the chronic bombardment of the body by the
bacteria found under the tartar leads to a variety of
diseases and death. Bacteria streaming towards the
heart adhere to the heart valve causing distortion
(endocardiosis) of the heart valve and congestive heart
failure. The same bacteria can migrate to the kidney
causing kidney failure. This kidney failure is the #1
reason for death in cats and the #2 cause of death in
dogs. Proper dental care can avoid this.
Besides routine dentals to remove the plaque and tartar
we have one more weapon against these catastrophic
diseases. A recent vaccine has been developed for
periodontal disease in dogs and is the most significant
proactive measure you can take to prolong your pet's
life. This vaccine is not currently available for cats or
humans but development is in the process. Dental scaling
and vaccination is strongly recommended for the overall
health of your best friend.

enice out for revenge


MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST



What if


they don't


come?

We take for granted how
much we need our winter
visitors.
At the same time they
also need us, particularly if
they're fishermen. Let's
suppose that 80 percent of
our fishing snowbirds don't
have a boat here in Florida.
The Venice area is one of
the few places where there
are numerous places to fish
from bridges, jetties, piers
and unposted shoreline.
This is not idle talk. Look
around, we have a free pier,
which has become a fan-
tastic place to fish year-
round. We have both sides
of a great jetty and miles
and miles of accessible
shoreline in the Intra-
coastal as well as the Gulf.
Go north about 40 minutes
and the Sunshine Skyway
Pier is world famous. While
you're traveling, go south
and Charlotte Harbor is
also world famous.
As I write this article, the
fishing in these areas is fan-
tastic. I talked to several fish-
ermen and they all said the
same thing. Fantastic reds,
snook and now the kings
have showed up in the near
Gulf. The old days are here
today. Two buddies went
fishing in Charlotte Harbor
and each one caught their
keeper red in ten minutes.
They said they released
about another ten reds.
We keep reading about
how other areas are attract-
ing our potential visitors
and future full-timers. What
true fisherman would even
consider going to another
state? If it's the money, if
they don't mind eating fish
4-5 times a week where else
could they live so cheap? At
the same time, we really
need these people and
unfortunately some people
complain about our crowd-
ed stores and roads.
Do you think the inde-
pendent bait and tackle
stores could survive with-
out the snowbirds? No way!
While I'm thinking
about it, please patronize
these stores. They need
your business.
Maybe we should have
a "Be nice to a snowbird
day" this winter.
We'll talk again next
week.

Remember the Titans?
It's printed in large letters on the front of
this week's defensive scouting report. If you
remember, the Golden Gate High School
Titans spoiled Venice High School's home-
coming last season with a 19-14 upset.
Now the Indians want to return the favor.
"(Homecoming) is a big deal. It's when a lot
of alumni come back and watch us play. Last
year they came and saw a sloppy football
team," Venice head coach John Peacock said.
"I hope they have a little revenge and some-
thing in their grit that wants to get these guys
back for spoiling their homecoming. I would,
personally, so I hope they do."
Venice fumbled the ball seven times, losing
four to the Titans. Then sophomore quarter-
back Trey Burton also had one interception,
giving the Indians five turnovers on the night.
None was more crushing than the last.
Trailing 19-14, Burton led Venice on a 12-
play drive to the Golden Gate 15. On the 12th
play, Burton coughed it up with just 20 sec-
onds to play. The Titans took a knee on the
next play to seal the victory.
"That was the only reason we lost that game
and I know I was the reason why we lost it,"
Burton said. "We're definitely looking forward
to beating them this year."
Venice has improved dramatically in the
turnover department. The Indians have fum-
bled just five times (losing one) in four games
so far. They carry a plus-three turnover margin
heading into the game with Golden Gate.
Burton is confident, but not cocky.

Brandow during Tuesday's practice.

"We never show up at a place and expect to
have it handed to you," he said. "We always
have to go out there and work hard. We want to
win, we need to win to be 5-0 and it will be a
real big win for our program right now."
Record controversy
Old-time Venice fans have been chirping
ever since the Gondolier Sun reported that
Burton broke the school record for passing
yards (his own) in this year's game with
Riverview High School.
Burton threw for 256 yards, breaking his
old record of 218 yards against Port Charlotte
in 2007. Some people remember Charlie
Hixson throwing for more in the mid-1970s.
Others say Ron Demasi did better in the early
1980s. Other names have also been floating
around.
In any case, no one has come forward with
an actual statistical record to confirm their
memory. Peacock said he certainly believes it's
possible, but he has no records prior to 1999.
"If anybody has any records, anything, let
me know," he said. "He's going to eventually
break it anyway."
Peacock said he wishes they had better
record keeping and would entertain the idea
of hiring a team historian. Contact him if you
are interested.

Still out
Although coaches hoped to have senior
defensive end Gerald Oriol (knee) back in
practice this week, doctors have decided to
hold him out for at least another week. At best,
Oriol could be back beginning Monday. Either
way, he is still expected to be ready for the
showdown with Manatee High School.
Donald Schillinger is almost ready to
return to action. The senior defensive tackle is
serving out the final week of a four-week sus-
pension for an undisclosed violation of team
policy.
Stat tracking
Senior wideout Robert Fordham nearly
tripled his receiving yards Friday with 96 on
two catches. His season total is up to 130 yards
from 34.
Burton's passer rating of 129.2 gives him the
area's best by more than 15 points. Within
District 5A-12, the next closest is Brion Carnes
of Manatee High School with a 95.2. Burton is
37-61 for eight touchdowns and two intercep-
tions. His total touchdowns (16) lead the area
as well.
While the Venice defense allowed less than
100 yards up until this point last season, the

Golf: Beginners showing improvement


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


The Venice High School girls golf
team is creeping toward .500.
The Lady Indians (5-8) defeated
St. Stephen's Episcopal School for
the second time Thursday before
their Tuesday match with Charlotte
High School was canceled due to
weather.
Defending Class 2A state cham-
pion Casey Kennedy and defend-
ing District 2A-14 and Region 2A-5


champion Crystal Smith continue
to shoot low scores, but the other,
lesser known players have been
improving to get Venice a few wins.
Morgan Farrell, who is playing
golf for the first time this season,
took 20 strokes off her score from
one match to the next two weeks
ago. Taylor Olson and Maggie
Kowalic, who played last year but
didn't see much competition from
the six and seven slot, are ever
improving.
Olson has been focusing on


eliminating what head coach
Wayne Robertson calls "big num-
bers," which are anything more
than double par. Olson had just
one big number Thursday.
Robertson said that Kowalic has
really improved her drive distance,
but still needs to work on her con-
sistency.

SENIOR SOFTBALL PLAYERS' ASSOCIATION

Center For Sight finishes behind Tremont, again


FROM CENTER FOR SIGHT
SOFTBALL

TheVenice Center for Sight age-80
softball team placed second in the
Senior Softball Players' Association
Tournament in Dalton, Ga., recently.
CFS won their first three seeding
games by a combined 43-13
behind solid hitting by Bob
Fuhrmann, Dominic Pasquariello,
Pete Petropoulos, Harry Herms and
Ed Eyles. Pitchers Al Murray and
Bill Eaton each earned wins.
The first game of double elimi-
nation proved more challenging
than the seeding rounds. The CFS
bats fell silent for the first five
innings as Baltimore's Tremont
Hotel built a 7-0 lead. Venice rallied
with three runs on singles by
Wilbur Bruce and Al Murray fol-
lowed by a two-run double by
Herms. One more RBI-single by
Del Babb drove in Herms, but
Tremont held on to win 7-3.
Facing elimination, CFS edged the
Texas All-Stars in a 14-13 tilt. Texas
scored five first-inning runs but
Venice scored seven. CFS extended

Texas responded with five in the
fourth and three in the fifth to take a
13-12 lead. In the seventh, Ed Schultz
started things off with a double and


Andy Devine finished them with a
two-run home run.
Tremont eliminated Texas the
following day, setting up a matchup
with CFS for the title. Venice would
have to take two from Tremont for
the championship.
CFS took an early 3-0 lead on
back-to-back doubles by Bill
Burkins and Petropoulos, followed
by singles from Eyles and Bob
Murphy and an infield error by
Tremont. Baltimore took a 4-3 lead
in the fourth before the teams went
back-and-forth in the fifth and
sixth innings, with Venice coming
out leading 11-9. CFS extended the
lead to 13-9 on a single by Jack
Hudson followed by a homer by
Lee Hebert. Tremont would not be
denied, though, scoring five in the
seventh for a 14-13 win and the
tournament title.
Named to the all-tournament
team were Pasquariello, Fuhrmann,
Schultz, Eyles, Murray and
Petropoulos.
Next up for CFS are the 2008
World Championships in Phoenix
in October.

Galarza, Patete, White win


divisions in Crow's Nest Regatta


BY JABBO GORDON
CORRESPONDENT

Lucas Galarza didn't
learn to sail until this past
summer, but he personi-
fies the term "quick study".
Galarza liked sailing
almost from the start
when he took a beginners'
course, sponsored by the
Venice Youth Boating
Association. So he decided
to take the advanced
course and to join the
association's year-round
program that meets most
Saturdays at the Venice
Yacht Club's Pram Shed.
Racing as if he had been
sailing all his life, Galarza
won four out of the eight
races in the annual Crow's
Nest Regatta last Saturday
to capture Green Fleet
honors with 13 points. But
it was a tight finish.
Carla Johnson grabbed
three firsts and also had 13
points, but lost to Galarza
in a tie-breaker. Samantha
Wood, who finished first in
the only other race, placed
third with 22 points. The
green fleet, which is
reserved for first year com-
petitors, had 11 entries.
Cara Patete tallied six
bullets in the Red, White
and Blue Fleet, which is for
more experienced sailors,
to garner top spot with

eight points. Garrett
Lawlor placed second out
of eight skippers with 18
markers. StephanVerHulst
took third with 19.
It was a close battle in
the Portsmouth Division
with Bryan White edging
Michelle Thomas for the
title. White sailed to four
firsts and eight points
while Thomas had three
firsts and 10 points. Paul
Kreider, in his first year as
a Laser sailor, was third
with 15. Six Portsmouth
skippers had only seven
races.
VYBA officials allow
competitors to throw out
one if they have seven or
more races. Thus, all
sailors were able to toss
their worst score. But this
caused a couple of upsets.
Lizzie Karras was ahead
of Sophie Hollingsworth,
39 to 41, in the Green Fleet.
But Hollingsworth tossed
a 10th-place finish while
Karras eliminated a sev-
enth, giving Hollingsworth
fourth place with 31 points
and Karras fifth with 32
markers.
Aubrey Khachetoorian
nipped Alicia Muscato 42
to 43 in raw score. But
Muscato did away with an
eighth-place finish while
Khachetoorian discarded
a seventh, forcing a 35-35


tie between the two skip-
pers. However, Muscato
earned fourth place
because she had won the
seventh race.
Muscato and Hollings-
worth proved that it is pos-
sible to come back in the
second half of a regatta.
Officials held four races on
Roberts Bay before noon,
broke for lunch and ran
four more in the after-
noon. Muscato had 31
points in the morning, but
only 12 in the afternoon
while Hollingsworth accu-
mulated 28 in first half but
only 13 in the second.
The Crow's Nest
Restaurant, which spon-
sored the regatta, will
honor the sailors with
lunch and an awards pre-
sentation at Higel Park
Oct. 11. The regatta is nor-
mally held the first week-
end in October, but offi-
cials moved it up a week
because the SAT exams are
scheduled for Oct. 4.
Some 16 VYBA skippers
will participate in the River
Romp Regatta, hosted by
the Edison Sailing Center
of Fort Myers, Oct. 18-19.
The annual event, held on
the Caloosahatchee River
west of the U.S. 41 bridge,
is one of several Junior
Olympic Regattas spon-
sored by US Sailing.

Loophole allows pensions and paychecks


BY JASON WITZ
STAFF WRITER

More than 200 elected offi-
cials are taking advantage of a
legal loophole that allows them
to return to the public payroll
while simultaneously drawing
retirement.
It's been called "double dip-
ping."
The practice, which cost the
state roughly $300 million last
year, has raised eyebrows
among tax watchdog groups,
which question the choice,
given the economic downturn.
Richard Worch would've be-
come the highest-paid sheriff in
Florida had he been re-elected
for a fourth term.
The 53-year-old left the Pasco
County Sheriff's Office in 2006
and was paid $207,820 of his
pension up front as a member of
the Deferred Retirement Option
Program, a benefit to state and
county employees of the Florida
Retirement System, agency rec-
ords show.
Since then, he has collected


about $7,617 per month -
$91,404 annually in retire-
ment. Add his salary as sheriff,
and his annual income would
have exceeded $219,000.
DeSoto County Sheriff
Vernon Keen has been collecting
about $5,927 per month since he
retired in 2001.
Currently, the 65-year-old
makes $106,149 annually, ac-
cording to Florida Legislative
Committee on Intergovern-
mental Relations. His Demo-
cratic successor, William Wise,
57, has been getting a yearly
pension of around $37,000 since
2004.
Keen said his pension was
created by the state in 1970,
when he started his law enforce-
ment career.
"I'm aggravated that people
keep saying it's taxpayers' mon-
ey," said Keen, who lost to Wise
in the August primary. "It's not.
It's my money and no one else is
entitled to it."
Misused
The loophole was created in


2001 to help several lawmakers
who had been school employees
prior to their elections.
But the concept has caused
concern among one govern-
ment watchdog group, which
believes the bill has been mis-
used.
Robert Weissert, spokesman
for Florida TaxWatch, said while
the state needs to offer competi-
tive wages, it shouldn't be overly
generous.
"These are loopholes that
really need to be closed," said
Weissert, whose nonpartisan
organization provides research
on government revenues and
expenses. "It can get out of hand
sometimes."
One state representative said
it's not the government's place to
prohibit such practices.
"I would hate to discriminate
against someone from running
because they collect a pension,"
said Mike Grant, R-Port Char-
lotte, indicating it would be no
different if the person retired
from the private sector and then
sought office.


Some officials reach an age
where they have to collect retire-
ment, although they can remain
employed.
Alleen Miller retired from the
Charlotte County School District
in 2003, after 42 years as a
teacher.
Her pension started through
the Deferred Retirement Option
Program, which amounted to
about $2,650 per month.
Miller was then appointed to
the Charlotte County School
Board in 2005, a position that
paid $32,048 last year.
In reality, Miller said the extra
check really isn't that much for
all the hours she puts in as a rep-
resentative of the district.
"To me, it's a nonissue," she
said. "If a person earns it, they
deserve it."
Option
But an alternative exists for
leaders who reach retirement age,
but only want one paycheck.
The Deferred Retirement Op-
tion Program, or DROP allows
officials to remain employed for


up to five years while their pen-
sion accumulates interest at 6.5
percent. Officials in high-risk
fields such as law enforce-
ment are eligible for retire-
ment at age 55, or after 25 years
of service.
In other cases, members of
the Florida Retirement System
are eligible at age 62, or 30 years
of service.
Charlotte County Sheriff John
Davenport officially retired in
2003, but he opted to let his pen-
sion collect interest through
DROP On Jan. 5, he will receive
about $400,000, followed by
monthly checks of an undis-
closed amount.
Others see the two paychecks
as more of a hindrance.
Caroline Zucker wanted her
pension to stop when she was
elected again to the Sarasota
County School Board in 2006,
but was unsuccessful.
"For me right now, all (my
retirement) does is put us in a
higher tax bracket," Zucker said.
The St. Petersburg Times con-
tributed to this report.

Visitors Can Cash In At Roadshow


Gold scrap selling big at Roadshow,

as price for metal hits record high
BY ARCHIE DAVIS
Roadshow Representative Staff Writer


Roadshow Representative Archie Davis assists a visitor with pocket watches
and clocks. The collection sold at the Roadshow for more than $2,000. Other
visitors brought a variety of items including coins, toys, dolls and trains.
Admission is free and no appointment is necessary.


Clean out your attics, closets and lock
box, the Roadshow is coming to town.
Roadshow experts are in town all this week
purchasing antiques and collectibles.
While the Roadshow will accept anything
that's old, they are focusing on gold and
silver, also coins made before 1965,
military items, musical instruments, pocket
and wrist watches. Modem jewelry with
diamonds and other precious stones are also
being accepted.
One person that attended the Roadshow
brought in an 1864 Civil War sword and
a coin collection and left 45 minutes later
$10,000 richer. Another was not as lucky
but seemed happy with the $355.00 they
received for broken gold jewelry. "I think
this is a great idea" said one lady that sold
her old class ring and some broken gold
chains. "The stuff was just lying in a dresser
drawer for years." She received $248.42 for
her efforts. Jeff Parsons, the president of
the Treasure Hunters Roadshow explained
what the show is all about. It's a chance for
anyone to sell their stuff and get what it's
really worth he said. It seems everyone has


items they have wondered about or want to
sell but really don't know where to go said
Parsons. He said the show has been in over
600 cities since 2001. When asked what
the most memorable experience was he had
a quick answer. "Without a doubt it was
a show in Pennsylvania when an elderly
gentleman asked if we could send someone
with him to visit an old toy store he had
closed down 50 years ago. It was like
walking back in time" Parsons said "the
store's 50 year old inventory was still on
the shelves the store was a treasure trove of
collectible toys. I have never seen anything
like it. It was simply unbelievable!"
It seems the store was closed due to World
War II. "I had to go serve my country."
the owner told Parsons. Serve he did
for the next 35 years. The collection of
vintage toys still in their original boxes
sold for more than $650,000. All this
week Roadshow experts will be accepting
various types of antiques and collectibles.
The event is free and no appointment is
necessary.

SCHOLARSHIP GOLF TOURNAMENT 3B


OUR TOWN


ANNIVERSARIES 6B


Looking for a great vacation alternative to a fuel-
intensive road trip or flight out of state?
Grande Tours offers outdoor boating adventures
from its headquarters at 12575 Placida Road, Placida,
which is about 23 miles south of Venice.
The company's Sunset Cruise provides a two-hour
trip through the Gasparilla Sound. Onlookers get to
view dolphins at play in the wake of a fiberglass marine
catamaran while it skims the 3- to 5-foot deep waters of
the greater Charlotte Harbor.
They also get to view the ever-so-rare white pelicans
at home on White Pelican Island and the backyards of
some of the nation's rich and famous personalities. The
most important sight, however, is the reason for the
trip a fantastic view of the sun setting over the Gulf
of Mexico.

Tour
The tour begins two hours before sunset so it can
reach the right spot for viewing the sun as it slips below
the horizon. On a trip in late August, the guide was
Capt. Pete Wallis, certified U.S. Coast Guard master
operator.
"I do most of the yapping," Wallis told the crowd.
Steering the vessel was Capt. Vince Molnar; his
friend, Eric Brucks, a marine biologist, acted as second
mate. Our group totaled 40 and we had taken advan-
tage of an off-season group rate of $20 each, rather
than the standard season rate of $25 per person from
Nov. 15 May 15.
Wallis spoke continuously through a hand-held
microphone giving verbal snapshots of the sound its
inhabitants and its history.
"This is the second most productive estuary of
infant sea life in the United States, except for the
Chesapeake Bay system," Wallis said. He added that it

is the most productive for
every kind of sea life one can
imagine.
The estuary is so produc-
tive that Mote Marine
Laboratory is planning to
build a lab to answer the
question of why the area is
so productive when other
areas are failing, he said.
Wallis attributed one
reason for the heightened
productivity to mangrove
trees.
"When people began popu-
lating Tampa Bay, they cut down the mangroves. But
here, they realized their importance and now it is
against the law to cut down mangroves," he said.

Wildlife
The tour was joined about halfway through by
playful dolphins. During our trip, they got caught
up in the boat's wake and raced with it, jumping
up and diving back into the cool blue water.
Wallis said the dolphins searched out the boat.
"Because of their sonar, echolocation that sends out

exactly what is out in the water. They knew where we
were, even though we didn't know where they were," he
said.
Several Osprey nests were seen in battery boxes
where the bird's built their nests for the "youngsters to
have a nice life" and where the Ospreys come back to
every year, according to Wallis. He said the Osprey
mates for life, and if one disappears, the other never
takes another mate.
Other birds within view included great egrets, brown
and more rare white pelicans on their homeland, the
man-made White Pelican Island that is a bird sanctuary
forbidden to humans.
"This island is strictly for
--- the birds," Wallis said, tongue-
in-cheek.

Rich and famous
Along the Intracostal Waterway of Gasparilla Sound,
Cabbage Island loomed in the distance. This area is
said to have been the inspiration for Jimmy Buffett's
song, Cheeseburger in Paradise.


White Pelican Island is home to some of the nation's once-endangered species. The American White Pelican is a very large (50"-70") white bird with black wing tips and a long, wide orange bill. It
has a wing span of up to 110 inches and typically weigh about 15.5 Ibs., according to Wikipedia.The island is manmade, but humans are forbidden from touching the land to protect the species.

Other highlights of the
rich and famous included
views of the Gasparilla
Inn, where the presiden-
tial Bush family visits
around the Christmas
holidays; a view of the
three-boat boathouse
built by the Vanderbilt
family; a red boat moored
bearing the name Red
October and said to
belong to Tom Clancy,
author of the book-
turned-into movie, "The
Hunt for Red October";
and boat slips belonging
to the daughter of Eli Lilly
and the owners of 3M.
Village
Early arrival at the tour
sight allows shopping at


little souvenir shops in the
fishing village. And, if
timed just right, after the
cruise, on any day but
Monday or Tuesday off
season, visitors can stop
in for Old Florida-style
waterfront dining at the
Fishery Restaurant. It's
located in the fishing vil-
lage that houses the tour
boat. In season, Nov. 15-
May 15, it is open seven
days a week, 11:30 a.m.-9
p.m.
You just might find
shopping a bargain with
what you saved in fuel for
this little "staycation" that
the whole family can
enjoy. And it's all in your
own backyard.

S teve Carroll portrays Charles
Lindbergh on the Lemon
Bay Playhouse stage on Friday, Oct. 10,
7:30 p.m., the evening before the Fly-In at
Buchan Airport. "The Lone Eagle" was one
of many nicknames given to Charles
Lindbergh by the press after he became
the first pilot to fly nonstop from New
York to Paris in May 1927. Carroll, who
wrote and performs the play, feels it was
an apt description of the man who did
almost everything alone. Tickets for The
Lone Eagle, at $15 for adults and $10 for
students, are available online at

GOREN BRIDGE


SQ 1 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
* Q 7Q754 Q8742 A6 473


0*


A This hand is a point weaker than
the previous example, but they are
worlds apart in playing strength. This
hand should take five or six tricks
even if partner does not have the
king. Bid three no trump.
Q 5 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
K 10 5 QJ 8 OK 7 AKJ 9 4
The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
1NT Pass 24 Pass
9
What do you bid now?
A You have a super-maximum one-
no-trump opener, including a good
five-card minor. However, partner is
interested in your major-suit holdings
and you have no idea of his strength.
Your first duty is to deny a four-card
major by rebidding two diamonds,
and see what transpires.
Q 6 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
K 1094 J J763 oAKJ 4KJ


Partner opens the bidding with one
no trump. What do you respond?
A Your hand is worth an invitation-
al raise if there is a major-suit fit. The
way to accomplish that is to start with
a Stayman inquiry of two clubs.
Raise either major if partner bids one
or bid two hearts if partner denies
one. Don't transfer into hearts that
guarantees missing a spade fit or get-
ting too high since a two-spade rebid
would be forcing.
Q 2 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
SQ754 8J8742 0 Q6 473
Partner opens the bidding with one
no trump. What do you respond?
A Your hand is too weak to use
Stayman; should partner deny a
major, your next bid would be a one-
round force. Simply bid two hearts
(or transfer into hearts). You have no
safety at the three-level.
Q 3 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
K J 8 c 75 0 K 107632 J 3
Partner opens the bidding with one
no trump. What do you respond?
A If you have some means of estab-
lishing what opener holds in dia-
monds, by all means use it. If not,
invite game by raising to two no
trump, inviting partner to go to game
with a maximum and hope your dia-
monds can be developed into tricks.
Q 4 As South, vulnerable, you hold:
* 10 63 z 94 AQJ 9 7 4 4 7 3


A Actually, there are three different
camps here. The largest always bids
spades first. The middle group
always bids hearts here. And the
smallest believes in bidding the
stronger first. We don't mind which
you do, as long as you and partner are
on the same page.

Suncoast Polytechnical High School.


Foundation raises $1.2 million for schools


FROM THE EDUCATION FOUNDATION OF
SARASOTA COUNTY INC.

Lori White, superintendent of Sarasota
County Public School District, congratulated
the Education Foundation of Sarasota County
donors for raising a record $1.2 million for the
schools this past year.
The donors heard from the schools chief
after touring the new Suncoast Polytechnical
High School in mid-September the most
technically advanced public school in the
region. The tour was guided by students from
the school's class of 2012.
White thanked the foundation for launch-
ing initiatives, like its computer donation pro-
gram, that give students the tools they need to
keep up with their peers around the world.
Christine Pfahler, head of the foundation's
board of directors, joined executive director
Cindy Kaiser to welcome more than 135 guests
attending the annual donor reception.
"Through our TeXcellence program," she


said, "you helped us provide home computers,
training and support for over 1,400 students
and changed the lives of entire families."
Other programs made possible by Edu-
cation Foundation donors include classroom
grants for teachers; literacy programs and
after-school tutoring; Teacher of the Year and
Employee of the Year; the Regional Science,
Engineering and Technology Fair; Academic
Olympics; student achievement awards and
scholarships.
Kaiser surprised SPHS principal Jennifer
Putnam with a check for $3,000, which the
school will use to underwrite student research
into sustaining the county's water supply. She
also offered special accolades to contributors
who led the way with gifts of $100,000 or more
during the past year, including Allan and
Sandy Weis, Advanced Network & Services
Inc., the Dart Foundation, William G.. Selby
and Marie Selby Foundation, W.G. Mills Inc.,
James and Shirley Ritchey, and the Swift
Family Foundation.


SPHS freshman Peter Cyran thanked the
audience, adding "and let's not forget the tax-
payers," for taking career and technical training
to an entirely new level at the magnet school.
Sarasota County's Teacher of the Year, Tom
Marshall, told those gathered how well this
district compared with others in Florida. The
Venice High School government and econom-
ics teacher described how his teaching was
transformed by technology available in every
classroom here.
Entertainment for the event was provided
by the Booker High School Visual & Per-
forming Arts Jazz Combo, directed by Ned
Rosenblatt.
Dedicated to quality education for all chil-
dren, the Education Foundation of Sarasota
County is an independent, not-for-profit orga-
nization that works in partnership with the
community and Sarasota County public
schools.

Welcome breakfast
Members of the
Healthcare Volunteers of
Venice introduced recruits
and veterans to the joy of
volunteer service at a con-
tinental breakfast at


Venice Regional Medical
Center.
Everyone got a chance
to meet, chat and learn
about services being
offered at the facility and
how volunteers affect the
community.
One of our best
I met Claude Lewis at
Wellfield Park. We spent
about a half hour talking
sports and became instant
friends.
Claude and I often sat
at sports events together,
and sometimes Joe Kelly
and Jim Chappo joined us.


Joe played senior baseball
and Jim worked at the
Venice Gondolier Sun.
When the Lady Indians
volleyball team was play-
ing for the state champi-
onship in Lakeland, the
football team was playing
for the regional champi-
onship down south.
"I can't be in two places
at the same time," Claude
told me. "How about cov-
ering the state champi-
onship game?"
My heart sang at the
chance to do a sports
story. The Lady Indians
won and I wrote the story.


I am blessed to have
many Claude memories,
including his getting ring-
side seats for a boxing
match for Jim and me after
I told him I'd never been to
a boxing match.
Claude never asked me
about my cancer treat-
ment. One Saturday he left
the office about a half hour
before me. When I got to
my car there was a note
under the windshield that
read, "Fran, you have to
get better. We need good
people on this earth." It
was signed with a smiley
face. The note was from


Claude and I still have it.
When I learned the cir-
cumstances of Claude's
death, I figured God left a
note under Claude's wind-
shield that read, "I need
more good people in
heaven. Come on home." I
know Joe Kelly and Claude
are talking baseball saying,
"Hey, what about those
Rays?"
Claude made Venice a
great place to live. He
made everyone of us who
loved him a little bit better.
Sports Editor Claude
Lewis was the epitome of a
nice man.
