arrested



for fraud

BY JON BRANTHOOVER
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office arrested Wanda C. Alfano,
owner of Wandalan Inc. RV
Sales, Nokomis, on felony
counts of motor vehicle title
fraud and second-degree grand
theft after police said she forged
a customer's
signature to
sell a travel
trailer that did
not belong to
her company.
An SCSO re-
port states that
a man police
identify as Mr.
Bolton used Alfano
Wandalan to
sell of his 37-foot travel trailer.
Philip J. Williams of North
Port purchased the trailer on
April 28, 2005, for $20,000
through Wandalan. Williams
said he wanted to start a pro-
duce market in the trailer, but
decided it would be too expen-
sive and never took delivery. He
instead asked Wandalan to resell
the vehicle.
Although Williams bought
the trailer, the title was never
transferred from Bolton. Ac-
cording to the report, he said
Alfano told him they would
avoid extra fees if the title re-
mained in Bolton's name.
In December 2006, Wandalan
sold Williams' trailer to Carl
George of Massachusetts for
$17,500. Williams was never
informed of the sale, he said.
Nearly a year and a half later,
on March 15, 2008, Alfano called
Williams, who was still unaware
that his trailer had been sold,
and asked if he had picked the
trailer up from the lot because it
was missing. Williams told Al-
fano it would have been impos-
sible for him to take the trailer
off the lot.
"I didn't have a truck big
enough to haul the trailer," he
said.

Red Sox deal still possible


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


Like a wild and woolly extra-
inning game that just won't end,
the Sarasota County Commis-
sion opted to continue talks with
the Boston Red Sox or any
other team, for that matter for
a new spring training site in
Sarasota Tuesday, despite issu-
ing a press release earlier in the
day that claimed negotiations
had ended.
Ultimately, the commission-
ers decided to hold a public
hearing Oct. 29 to discuss the
possible implementation of an-
other penny to the Tourist De-
velopment Tax otherwise
known as the bed tax half of
which would be used to raise
additional funds for the stadi-
um. The commissioners could
make that happen with a 4-1
vote or better.
The press release, issued by


Patterson Barbetta


the county's communications
department, cited an inability to
reach agreement about key
terms and conditions for the
project, apparently based on
limited credit market conditions
stanching available funding
resources and "limited sources
available for operations and
maintenance of the complex."
Working under strict negoti-
ating guidelines, Deputy County
Administrator David Bullock
said a proposal was put together
composed of the county's con-
tribution of 30 years of a 1 per-


cent Tourist Development Tax at
3 percent growth less $15 mil-
lion to be held back, primarily
for beach renourishment -
totaling $44 million. In addition,
between $4.5 million and $9 mil-
lion would come from Surtax III
revenues.
The city of Sarasota would
contribute land for the project,
along with $5.2 million and
$400,000 in annual contribu-
tions for 30 years on the current
Ed Smith Stadium subsidy, plus
between $1 million and $5 mil-
lion of Surtax III dollars.
Despite these numbers, Bull-
ock maintained his negotiating
team "fell short." The amount
they were short depends upon
the bond market, according to
Commissioner Joe Barbetta, a
staunch supporter of the pro-
ject.

settlement in attorney

shade meeting.

NEWS EDITOR

It's all about the money now,
according to city officials.
On Tuesday Venice City
Council authorized another
shade meeting in an attempt to
settle the ongoing Sunshine law-
suit against the city, individual
council members and other city
representatives.
Council members learned
attorney An-
drea Mogen-
sen, counsel

tiff in the
lawsuit, re-
jected an of- 1
fer made last
week by the SUNSHINE LAW
city. In addi-
tion to nonmonetary issues, the
city increased its financial offer
from $30,000 to $50,000 for
attorney fees and costs to settle
the suit without admitting guilt.
Council could authorize the
city attorney to sweeten the pot.
"I think we should offer what
we should to get this done," said
Council Member Vicki Noren.

County eligible for housing grant


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Although a federal grant for
$7.1 million could help Sarasota
County families find affordable
housing, the funds may force the
county to become an unwilling
landlord of blighted property.
The Neighborhood Stabiliz-
ation Program grant, subsidized
by the U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Devel-
opment, would allow the county
to acquire and redevelop fore-
closed properties that otherwise
might become sources of aban-
donment and blight around the
county, according to Susan
Scott, deputy county adminis-
trator.
Scott, flanked by Donald
Hadsell, director of housing and
community development, told
the commissioners Tuesday
there was an additional pool of
funds at the state level total-


ing $91 million administered
by the Department of Com-
munity Affairs from which the
county might also draw aid.
"We will bring you data to
show you where those bank-
owned properties are, in a price
range that you all are interested
in pursuing," Scott said.
Eligible uses for the funds
would include:
Establishing financing mech-
anisms to buy foreclosed homes
Purchasing and rehabilitat-
ing such homes for resell or
rental
Demolishing blighted struc-
tures
Redeveloping demolished
or vacant properties
According to Scott, all funds
must benefit families with
incomes at or below 120 percent
of the county median income
and 25 percent of the funds
must be used to benefit those at
or below 50 percent of the coun-


ty median income.
Conduit
Commissioner Jon Thaxton
looked at the windfall skeptical-
ly.
"This sounds really good
politically, but in the real world
market it's not really that great of
a deal," Thaxton said. "Because
we are now giving the banks a
financial award for kicking peo-
ple out on the streets rather than
working with them, causing
more homes to be vacated."
Thaxton was concerned
HUD's offer might become the
commission's encumbrance,
forcing on it stewardship of
property whose obligations,
repairs, liability and insurance
might prove costly even in the
short term.
"There's no such thing as free
real estate at all," Thaxton said.

Kit McKeon for Venice City Council Seat #2.
Preserving Paradise
While Moving Forward
The direction of Venice's future is at a crucial point and I want
to work toward that future on behalf of its citizens. We need a
city council that works cooperatively on the issues facing
Venice.
To work on behalf of Venice and prepare myself, I have
attended virtually all of the Council Meetings and workshops
for the last year and a half. I voluntarily worked with other
citizens and the Venice Airport Business Association trying to
find common ground so that council could complete the
Airport Masterplan Update.
KIT MCKEON I volunteered for and was selected to be a member of the
Planning Commission. And most recently, took the initiative to
attend a seminar on "Open Government and Politics" hosted by the Williams Parker
Law Firm at the Sarasota Memorial Hospital to become more knowledgeable about the
Sunshine Law and Florida Ethics Commission.
My priorities are:
* Responding to the Citizens of Venice
* Preserving Venice's Small Town Charm
* Enhancing a Vibrant and Successful Downtown
* Keeping Our Municipal Golf Course
* Keeping Our Airport Safe
* Supporting Sensible Growth and Redevelopment
Endorsements:
* Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge 57
* Venice Taxpayers League
*Venice Florida!dot com
Help me to preserve our paradise while moving forward with sensible growth.
Vote for me for Venice City Council Seat 2 on November 4.

School board plans future budget cuts


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County School
Board began looking at options
for cutting the 2009-10 budget
at a workshop Tuesday.
"This is the first in a series of
these workshops we will hold on
a monthly basis," said Lori
White, schools superintendent.
The board looked at projec-
tions of estimated revenues,
transfers in from capital funds
and appropriations for next year
drafted by Al Widener, deputy
chief financial officer.
The board mulled over
options to reach what member
Frank Kovach said would
amount to a $39 million cut from
the 2009-10 budget. White said


decisions would not be made
until January. She said the budget
department gave a "worst-case
scenario" to start the process.
Widener estimated total
revenues for next year at
$372,552,218. Added to trans-
fers in of $17,319,401, available
funds would total $389,871,619.
Total costs are estimated at
$428,491,640, which leaves a
deficit of $38,620,021.
Revenues
Widener said the estimated
revenues in the general fund for
next fiscal year were based on
an assumption of a reduced
school enrollment of 40,800.
"This reduction of approxi-
mately 3 percent was projected
from the most recent October sur-


vey data, which shows our schools
still declining in enrollment," he
said in his executive summary.
Other general fund reductions
are due to a 10-percent reduction
of the tax roll forecast based on
the real estate market correction
and related unemployment data.
"State revenues, with the
exception of the mandated class-
size amendment, are estimated
to decrease 3 percent," he said.
Widener does not expect the
2-percent holdback amount to
be restored from the state, and
he calculated a total decrease in
state revenues of 5 percent.

More delays in restaurant lease


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


What's another two weeks
when you've been negotiating
for eight years?
That was the feeling Tuesday
as some council members
learned the renegotiated lease
with restaurant Sharky's on the
Pier was, once again, pulled off
its agenda.
"The lease will not be voted
on by council today as there are
ongoing negotiations," Mayor
Ed Martin said.
A draft of the renegotiated
contract was posted on the city


Web site Friday.
City officials wouldn't say
exactly what the latest sticking
point is, but there have been
many since court-ordered
mediation sessions over the
past year failed.
City Attorney Bob Anderson
said he didn't think any of the
outstanding issues were deal-
breakers.
"Evidently there is still some
language our attorney was
working with their attorney on,"
said Mike Pachota, part owner
of Sharky's. "They couldn't get it
done for today's meeting.
"I just want to stop paying


attorney fees. I have over
$200,000 into this ... and four
depositions next week. This is
one hell of a big poker game. The
stake's getting higher every day."
The trial has been set for
early January.
Under scrutiny
A number of residents spoke
to the council Oct. 14 in favor of
the delay, calling it a "sweetheart
deal."

County Coalition of Neighbor-
hood Associations said his group

Venice Police seek


traffic court solutions


BY JON BRANTHOOVER
STAFF WRITER


The Venice Police Department
hopes to come to a resolution
with county officials to reduce the
economic impact of the South
County Traffic Court closure.
The county closed the court,
formerly located in the Robert L.
Anderson Administration Build-
ing in Venice, because of state
funding reductions over the
summer.
Police Chief Julie Williams
said in a letter addressed to
Council Member John Moore
that the negative impacts the
police department is suffering
include increased overtime, con-
gestion at the downtown traffic
court, wear and tear to police
vehicles, consumption of fuel
and out-of-service time for on-
duty officers. It's also an inconve-
nience for violators, who now
must drive to Sarasota for their
traffic case.
Williams suggested to Sara-
sota County Criminal Justice
Policy Coordinator Wayne Apple-
bee that they break traffic court
appearances into one-hour seg-
ments with a number of cases
scheduled each hour to reduce
the amount of time officers
spend on the case. She also sug-
gested the possibility of using
video conferencing, which is
already used for first hearings
when no evidence is presented.
Applebee is currently review-
ing the legality of a video link.
"In the past video conferenc-


ing has not been used for actual
witness testimony, but rather for
first appearances," he said.
"There are some legal issues
around the concept, to include
each side agreeing to its use."
Applebee said the court has
already made changes to save
officers' time. He said the court
began holding pretrial confer-
ences for traffic offenders, which
require the defendant, but not
the officer, to attend.
"The court estimates they are
successfully resolving approxi-
mately 80 percent or more of
traffic cases without requiring
the officer to attend," he said.
Applebee also said the county
will reopen the South County
Traffic Court when funding is
reinstated.
"Of course, as of this point there
is no expectation of increased
funding anytime soon," he said.

Correction
A story in the Oct. 12 edi-
tion of the Gondolier Sun
erroneously stated the Venice
Neighborhoods Coalition had
thrown its support behind
city council candidate Kit
McKeon.
In fact, VNC didn't endorse
McKeon until the next day
after Emilio Carlesimo and
John Osmulski, his opponents
for seat No. 2, were no-shows
at the candidate forum VNC
sponsored. The Gondolier Sun
regrets the error.

OUR VIEW



Nancy Detert for District 23 Senate seat


n the race for the state Senate Dis-
trict 23 seat being vacated by Lisa
Carlton, an experienced legislator is
facing off against a newcomer.
Former Rep. Nancy Detert of Venice
is back in the political mix this year after
an unsuccessful campaign for Congress
in 2006. We've always been impressed
with the Venice Republican's energy,
common sense and generally moderate
political positions, and we're pleased to
be able to recommend her for the Sen-
ate district that stretches from northern
Sarasota into Venice, North Port, Eng-
lewood and Charlotte County.
And we are very impressed with the
Democrat in the race this year, Morgan
Bentley. Like Detert, he is a moderate,
and many of his positions are not that
far from hers.
Both are articulate and positive in
person, although their TV commercials


have taken an unfortunate, superficial
and nasty turn. For the time being, we'll
chalk that up to the pathetic state of the
modern political process and the influ-
ence of state party "experts."
Bentley, 41, a Sarasota lawyer who
has been president of the county bar
association and Legal Aid of Manasota,
could be on the political scene for years.
We hope so.
He has thought out the issues and
pulls no punches, calling the past year's
Legislature "god-awful."
Bentley is against more oil drilling in
the Gulf.
"It's a political red herring," he said.
He favored establishing a cap on all
property taxes. He'd like to establish a
board of regents to set standards for all
levels of education in Florida and was
against tying funding to FCAT scores.
As for the budget, Bentley said he'd kill


the state deal to buy U.S. Sugar property
and would look at least look at a broader
sales tax on services. His fellow lawyers
aren't always thrilled with this stance.
Still, he said, "Joe's vacuum guy down
the street has to pay, so why not us?"
All in all, he is very impressive.
But in Detert, 63, we have a steady
hand with a strong record of public ser-
vice and a wealth of experience in Talla-
hassee.
A longtime small-business owner,
Detert served on the Sarasota County
School Board from 1988 to 1992. She
represented House District 70 from
1998 until 2006, when she had to leave
office due to term limits.
Detert, who is endorsed by Carlton and
Buchanan, favors reduced government
spending and lower taxes, but it's clear she
won't take a meat cleaver to the budget.
She favors taxing Intemet sales to boost


tax revenues. She also decries the
Legislature's recent tendency to shift costs
from the state to local governments, often
by way of statewide referendum.
"Nobody's willing to take any respon-
sibility for anything. There's no bravery,"
she told us.
That's typical of Detert's candor. Her
plain-speaking style and commitment
to constituents are reasons she was
honored by more than 20 groups for her
work on behalf of housing, museums,
libraries, schools and businesses. She
has been a member of key House com-
mittees, including stints as chair of
commerce, tourism and children and
family services.
Detert has the common-sense ap-
proach and leadership qualities we ad-
mire.
We recommend Nancy Detert for the
Senate District 23 seat.


Can we get it done?

It appeared the city had
settled with Sharky's for
the third or fourth time,
but apparently, once
again, it has unraveled.
That dispute has just
gone on too long. On at
least two occasions the
parties got together and
reached an agreement
only to have council turn it
down, against the advice
of its attorney.
Moving forward with
litigation against good
advice has been a trait of
the recent councils. They
went ahead on the short-
term rental controversy
and lost after not settling
despite a recommenda-
tion from the city attorney.
They had a settlement
offer on the e-mail scandal
and are moving forward
without taking it. And then
there were two settlement
offers in the Sharky's law-
suit before we got to the
latest attempt.
I remember that when
Marty Black stepped into
the city manager's job, he
inherited a bunch of prob-
lems, from EPA fines to
FAA disagreements, the
rental problem and several
more. He went about
cleaning them up and had
them almost all solved. In
short order we are in much
worse shape than we were
when he took over.
Actually, the situation
we are in is worse, as the
city is also trying to com-
plete comp plan revisions
that are long overdue and
finalize a long-delayed air-
port master plan, as well as
resolve the rental suit and
the lawsuits facing com-
mittee and council mem-
bers over Sunshine Law
violations.
John Moore has been
the biggest opponent of
the Sharky's agreements.
He went on council with
the reputation of being a
problem-solver, so I hope
he helps this get this done.
It would be good to at
least get the Sharky's dis-
pute resolved.

The gathering of friends
to celebrate the life of
Claude Lewis, former

really touching. People
told wonderful stories of
the fun Claude brought to
those around him. I found
out which ones of the
news team played football
in the building late at
night.
Claude was a very
bright grownup with all
the innocence you love in
kids. If his temperament
and love for people were
the norm, we would have a
much nicer world.

Peg Tomanio sent a
thoughtful e-mail saying
she believes Sue Lang is
right on the airport, as wit-
nessed by the fact two-
thirds of city residents
voted for her. She outlined
Sue's plan: safety for pilots,
repair runway 4-22, get
accurate data, keep the
airport within the current
airport boundaries, devel-
op appropriate areas, no
control tower, protect the
environment and golf
course, and control noise.
Most of these it is hard
to argue with. Others, it is
how you define the prob-
lem, and the solution you
want.

Please don't miss the
Sun Fiesta, which starts
Friday night and goes
through Sunday down-
town. There is a lot to do,
lots of great entertain-
ment, great food for
instance, you should try
Sertoma's cheeseburgers
in paradise crafts and,
of course, the parade.
On Saturday morning
you can watch a thrilling
bed race before the
parade. You likely will see a
few politicians also.
The Women's Sertoma
Club does such a fabulous
job of putting this on each
year. Patty Corona is the
president, but 30 women
handle a wide variety of
tasks to help us all have
fun. The money goes to
local charities, such as
scholarships for women.

Do not miss getting
your pumpkins from
Grace United Methodist
Church. They have every
size, shape and kind. Our
grandchildren loved paint-
ing a couple of them. The
money helps fund church
programs.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Just let me make up my own mind


Editor:
Is anyone else wondering whywe might be heading to
the polls in November? The pundits, pollsters and prog-
nosticators, all of them, have it all figured out.
If we further believe the media, the voting machines
will once again be suspect. It is getting so difficult to
stand in the booth with instrument in hand and mark
with pride and confidence one's personal choices. It is
insulting how the results are being aired so in advance of
this national event.
Another ongoing dilemma, perhaps to be repeated, is
the 18,000 "lost" votes in the last Buchanan/Jennings
race. I believe the voting apparatus was fine; the very
negative behavior of both candidates cost them my par-
ticipation and just maybe that of 17,999 others. In my
mind, neither should be rewarded any high office
around their chosen vote strategy.
All of us need to demand the freedom to be free of
media hype that distorts, tells in advance the whole big
picture. Perhaps technology has brought us too far, too
fast. It takes me 37 buttons on my TV remote to "get it"
these days when a few years ago, I got more "getting up"
exercise to be informed through an on/off switch and a
dial volume control.
The American voter needs more space from
overindulgent candidates. Time used, money spent and
bashing styles are turnoffs. The media get caught up in
the frenzy and we're all the losers.
I will still cast my studied votes next month. I always


have.

One thing you can say
about Sarah Palin: She
brings out the best and
worse in people.
Watch the sarcastic,
snide remarks such as Sar-

absolutely enraged when
Sarah brought her family,
including children, onto
the political platform.
Wait a minute. Didn't I
see Michelle and her hus-
band Barack Hussein Oba-
ma bring their two kids
onto the platform, too? I
think someone here has to
take the beam out of their
own eye before making
such slamming remarks.
That's the worst side of

Candidate shows South County knowledge


EDITOR'S NOTE: Jono
Miller, a candidate for the
Sarasota County Commis-
sion District 1 seat, is re-
sponding to an editorial
questioning the familiarity of
the District 1 candidates with
South County.

Sarasota County has
what amounts to a geo-
graphic distribution re-
quirement for county
commissioners. This en-
sures our commissioners
won't all come from one
area, like the city of Sara-
sota now (or North Port in
the future).
So we elect one com-
missioner from each of
five districts, yet everyone
in the county votes in each
of these races. That means
South County voters will
be voting in the November
general election on candi-
dates from the northern-
most tier of the county.
These District 1 candi-
dates are required to live
there, so unless they have
some reason to venture to
South County, their know-
ledge of Venice, Engle-
wood and North Port can
be somewhat limited.
Conversely, South County
voters may not know


much about candidates
who live closer to Braden-
ton than Venice.
The Gondolier Sun re-
cently challenged the Dis-
trict 1 candidates with a
series of South County
questions. The following is
my response.
What's the biggest city
in Sarasota County?
North Port in terms of
land area and population
but not yet in terms of reg-
istered voters.
What can Sarasota
County commissioners do
to improve relations with
North Port city govern-
ment?
Beyond basic respect,
three things. County com-
missioners need to under-
stand the territory, the citi-
zens and the leadership
direction. I've known
North Port since 1983 and
I've been meeting citizens
and listening as I cam-
paign. Learning about di-
rection will involve spend-
ing more time with North
Port commissioners, and
City Manager Crowell. I'm
also interested in learning
more about Vision North
Port.
Do you support con-
struction of a new jail in
South County? If so,
should it be situated in
North Port?
Yes, and probably.
Do we need to im-
prove River Road? What
steps have been taken in
the past year and what are
the realistic options for
funding in the future?
It's great to have the
engineering done, but
apparently 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.
The next time com-
mission districts are re-
drawn, would you favor a
North Port-only seat?
Not sure. I'd have to
know more about rules
and goals of redistricting.
What area does the
Lemon Bay Watershed en-
compass? What can we do
to protect it?
I've actually given pre-
sentations about the Lem-
on Bay watershed. We've
done a good job protect-
ing much of the remaining
undeveloped land, and
now we need to work on
stormwater retrofits to
improve the quality of
water entering the bay.
Some of this will be lot-by-
lot and some will be more
regional.
What was the Gott-
fried Stewardship District?
Would you have voted for
it?
Anyone can Google this
(3,662-acre overlay district
proposed to be developed
at two dwelling units per
acre), but I was one of
about five citizens to testi-
fybefore the planning com-
mission regarding GSV I
said I would take more time
to address some unan-
swered questions.
The only responsible
answer for how I would
vote as a commissioner is
that I would have to read
the entire proposal, plan-
ning staff comments, pub-
lic testimony from both


hearings, any North Port
or agency comment,
DCA's analysis and the
changes proffered by the
applicant. To shoot from
the hip would be unfair
both to the applicant and
South County citizens. I
have a reputation for
being open-minded and
listening to all sides and I
will thoroughly under-
stand any subsequent
resurfacing of this propos-
al before voting.
What's the purpose of
the Englewood Commun-
ity Redevelopment Area?
What is the most pressing
need there?
The CRA exists to im-
prove and redevelop what
I think of as the older sec-
tions of Englewood. The
stormwater issues need to
be resolved and I support
the low impact develop-
ment approach. Person-
ally, I tend to focus on the
historic charm of Dear-
born Street and the poten-
tial for better connection
to the bay, but I under-
stand it involves a broader
project area.
Is the State Road 776
Corridor Plan working?
It's a very ambitious
plan filled with dozens of
amenities and features
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.
What can we do to
boost industrial develop-
ment in South County?
I think the county paid
for a study that recom-
mended more-intense use
of existing MEC zoning.

LAWSUIT from Page 1A
leges improper e-mail communi-
cations and destruction of public
records.
Named in the suit are current
Council Members Sue Lang, John
Simmonds, John Moore and
Mayor Ed Martin.
"From the beginning they said
this wasn't about money," Venice
City Attorney Bob Anderson said.
"If the plantiffs are motivated by
teaching the city a lesson and get-
ting them to comply with the
Sunshine Law and Public Records
Law then they have accomplished
their task."
"Remember, it is the taxpayers
who are going to pay the freight."
Anderson said the plaintiff's


$200,000-plus settlement propos-
al was really $100,000 in actual
expenses inflated by a multiplier.
"We vigorously contend no
multiplier" in a Sunshine case has
ever been or should be awarded.
Anderson argued the city's coun-
teroffer of $50,000 was reason-
able. If even half of the 12 counts
of impropriety stick, the offer
would be in the ballpark, he
asserted.
Not only did Mogensen reject
the financial offer, she withdrew
the previous offer which included
nonmonetary stipulations gov-
erning the future use of e-mails by
city council and others.
That included a single manda-
tory annual training session for
council members and members


Not only did Mogensen
reject the financial
offer, she withdrew the
previous offer ...




of all other city boards, commis-
sions, committees and task forces.
The heart of the settlement was
a stipulation to only use city e-
mail accounts when transacting
city business. If adhered to, that
could take personal computers
out of the picture.
The city agreed to implement a
new e-mail system that provides


remote access to all city e-mail
accounts.
In return, the defendants
would admit no violations of the
Government in the Sunshine Law
or Public Records Law. Further,
city council action taken on pro-
jects previously discussed via e-
mail would not be overturned.
Anderson said Mogensen
agreed to all the nonmonetary
issues at a meeting Sept. 25.
"If we met their nonmonetary
stipulations, then let's just find the
appropriate number," Anderson
said.
Attempts to reach Mogensen
on deadline were unsuccessful.
The shade meeting takes place
Oct. 28 at city hall.

the deal, clearly opposed it
- especially if additional

"And keeping the proper-
ties vacant is going to do
nothing but prolong the
economic stagnation and
decline that we're in."
Thaxton said it would
be a challenge to use the
funds for foreclosed prop-
erties which could make
them market-ready and
affordable.
"Our intention is to just
be a conduit for the
funds," Scott replied, "and
we would never take title
to these properties. They
flow through to the orga-


money would come from
the suggested implementa-
tion of another half penny
of the bed tax.
Commission Chair Shan-
non Staub remained hope-
ful at the meeting's end.
"This is a business
negotiation," Staub said. "I
think people have to get


nization that has a buyer
on the back end, creating
an opportunity for people
ready to buy or rent."
That's where Hadsell's
office would come in, she
added, administering re-
quests and helping the
most qualified, deserving
individuals and organiza-
tions acquire and take
charge of the properties
quickly.
Where to start
Scott suggested the best
properties to start with


creative in what they're
looking at."
That creativity might
stem from a combination
of a number of possibili-
ties, she added.
"On Oct. 29 there will be
a public hearing on the
possibility of increasing
the TDT by a penny,"


would be single-family
homes.
"There's 9,600 single-
family homes on the mar-
ket right now," she said.
"And there are 926 homes
on the market for under
$100,000. We'll only be able
to get about 70 homes for
the $7.1 million we have."
Commission Chair Shan-
non Staub suggested staff
"look at the inventory of
people" in the community
rather than the inventory
of houses, focusing on
acquiring an apartment


Staub said. "At the same
time, we have asked that
negotiations with the Red
Sox- or anyone else be
brought to us as detailed
as possible, so we can con-
sider them both at the
same time."
What could come out of
it might be a good deal


building, for example, that
could house many low-
income families at once.
Commissioner Paul Mer-
cier did not want to be "a
bailout to a bailout," sug-
gesting the money should
go toward demolishing
blighted structures and
redevelop them.
"We'll be the conduit,"
Scott told the commission-
ers. "You set the policies."
Staub then made an ap-
peal to "professionals on
the front lines" in the real
estate industry to weigh in


from the Red Sox, willing-
ness to put another half
cent toward the stadium,
and maybe another team
will come to the table.
"Or, maybe that's the
time we decide the whole
thing just won't work,"
Staub said.

the funds might best be
used, once the application
process is completed by
Oct. 27 and submitted

ing a 15-day public com-

people are that can quali-

to hear from the profes-
sionals from the private
sector that can give us
advice on this."

raged when he learned the
dealership had sold the
trailer without his knowl-
edge.
"She got a new title
made, sold it to someone
and took all that money,"
he said. "She got paid
twice for the trailer."
Records show in Jan-
uary 2007, Wandalan filed
an application for a dupli-
cate title. According to the
SCSO report, she forged
Bolton's signature. A title
runner then retrieved an
electronic duplicate of the
title through the Sarasota

forged Bolton's signature,

the school's budget.
Projected salaries were
prepared based on current
staffing allocations.
"The enrollment decline
allocates 71 fewer positions
for the 2009-10 fiscal year,"
Widener said.
The only increases in
the salary computation
were for step and longevity
increases.
"The employee benefit
computation includes
the legislative retirement
increase from 9.85 per-
cent to 11.71 percent,
restoring workers com-

Cuts
White gave the board a
list of actions taken this
year that resulted in nearly
$600,000 in savings for the
district beyond those built
into the budget. Actions
included lowering the cost
of progress monitoring to
$100,000 from $350,000
with the termination of the
contract with Princeton
Review. It also included
reductions in warehouse
supplies of $20,000 and
purchase card rebates of
$33,000.
For 2009-10, the district
may see a total one-time
saving of $4,152,000 with
legislative flexibility allow-
ing the use categorical
funds for other areas -
using textbook dollars to
purchase other items, for
example and class-size
reduction dollars.
Recommended cuts for
the board to consider for
2009-10 include consoli-

urged the delay "until concerned citizens
have time to thoroughly review" the
agreement.
He referred council members to a let-
ter by CONA President Ann Kaplan, who
said "From the terms of the agreement
that we have reviewed, it appears that it is
an extremely lucrative deal for the lessee
with very little benefit to the city and citi-
zens. You can do much better ... with this
valuable asset."
In addition to the rents and fees,
CONA highlighted a number of provi-
sions for scrutiny like the noncompeti-
tion clause and future collection of fish-
ing pier admission fees.
In an e-mail to Mayor Ed Martin, resi-
dent Mike Rafferty criticized the inclu-
sion of a sublease provision, which reads,
"It is anticipated that the Lessee may sub-


sites and holding it only
four days a week, which
will reduce personnel and
energy needs; implement-
ing a district four-day work
week; and consolidating
middle- and high-school
transportation routes and
implementing zone pick-
ups. The estimated savings
total $587,000.
Venice rebuild
If the millage rate
remains at 1.75 mills next
year, there is a good
chance rebuilds will con-
tinue as planned for
Venice and Booker high
schools. However, Kathy
Kleinlein, board chair, said
there is a possibility the
millage rate will be only
1.5 mills next year.
According to Widener,
"If it goes down to 1.5
mills, that will have a sig-
nificant impact on capital
projects. If the amount is
down by $12 million or
$15 million, that could
cause major school issues."

lease or assign this Lease to a corporation
or other legal entity."
"The council has promised the citizens
'no more subleases.' Please incorporate
provisions into the Sharky's lease to pro-
hibit any subleases," Rafferty wrote.
He also called the ground rent of
$9,000 per month "dirt cheap."
All that could be moot.
Anderson reminded those in atten-
dance the court was considering a contract
that was previously entered into in 2000,
and not negotiating an entirely new one.
The city, which leases the popular
beachfront property, sued the restaurant
owners in 2006 over blanks left in an
amendment to that lease. The city is ask-
ing a judge to determine whether the
lease was valid.

MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST


The word


is out

This past week, everywhere I
went fishermen and bait shop
owners were all saying the same
thing.
Almost every store I went to in
the Tampa/St. Petersburg/Clear-
water area, they all said the same
thing about how good the Venice
area has been. Then I heard it in
Fort Myers and Cape Coral.
It's all true. Our local fishing,
inshore and offshore, has defi-
nitely been fantastic. The reason
is very simple. The green-
backs/white bait are here by the
millions.
It won't last. They will start
thinning out with each upcom-
ing cold front.
The small tarpon are still in
the Intracoastal in downtown
Venice. Last week a few fisher-
men found larger tarpon less
than 500 feet from the beach.
They were hooking them and
losing most of them to the crab
traps. These weren't babies -
most were more than 100
pounds.
The Venice Municipal Pier
fishing remains fantastic. The
Venice Jetties have also been
great with fewer fishermen. I
understand they're starting to
hook some bonita at the pier in
addition to the Spanish macs,
kings, tarpon, ladies, jacks and
mangrove snappers.
The good old days are here
today. Dust off your old rod and
reel and maybe re-spool with
fresh line and get out there.
While you're going fishing, take a
kid with you. The younger the
better.
I started fishing at age 5 and I
did the same thing with my
grandsons. Now they claim that
they're better fishermen than I
am. Of course I've been hearing
the same thing from Mrs.
Sheepshead for about 40 years.
Who knows, maybe they're all
right.
Well, fellow Sheepsheadites,
the time has come to say good-
bye until next week.

Mr Sheepshead is Dave Hack.
His column appears on
Wednesdays. Contact him at

VENICE HIGH SCHOOL GOLF




Boys take district by 15 strokes


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


The Venice High School boys golf team
sufficiently made up for last year's disap-
pointment at districts.
The Indians captured the District 2A-14
championship by a whopping 15 strokes
Monday at Kingsway Country Club in Lake
Suzy There were only eight scores below 80
in the 57-man tournament. Venice had
almost half of them.
"We played great," Venice head coach
Marty Tarala said. "It was a tough day ...
windy. For us to win by 15 is a surprise."
Tyler Jones (76), Tim Garofalo (76),
Spencer Dunford (79) and Erick Bennett (81)
combined for a team score of 312 on a day
with gusts of up to 30 miles per hour. The
next closest team was Lakewood Ranch
High School with a 327. Riverview High
School was the third team to qualify for
regions, finishing third with a 328.
The top three teams and top three indi-
viduals not included in those teams advance
to the Region 2A-5 tournament, which will
be played Monday at Stoneybrook Golf Club
in Bradenton.
Venice's display at the district tournament
showed off their depth. The Indians don't
have one world-beater on the team even
though many of the player are certainly
capable of winning tournaments. Instead,
Venice brings a level of depth and consisten-
cy that makes them hard to beat.
All five players that competed on

The Venice High School boys golf team celebrates their District 2A-14 championship Monday at
Kingsway Country Club. The Indians shot a 312 as a team in the 18-hole competition.


Monday, including Kyle Collison, who shot a
non-scoring 86, averaged under 40 through
nine holes this season.
"I would say consistency was definitely
the key for us today," Tarala said. "They're all
capable of shooting in the 70s for 18 holes."
Venice advances to the Region 2A-5 tour-


nament Monday. Teams must finish in the
top two at regions to advance to the FHSAA
Finals. The top two individuals not on those
two teams will also advance, provided they
are within five strokes of the low medalist.

Kennedy, who took second in

Undersized, overlooked?


TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


When Southern Cal fell 27-21
to Oregon State and their 5-foot-
7,193-pound running back, you
thought about it.
When Jeffrey Demps (5-foot-
8, 176) and Chris Rainey (5-foot-
9, 185) exploded for 195 yards
and a touchdown on 21 carries
in Florida's 51-21 rout of then-
No. 4 LSU, you though about it a
little harder.
Can Dri Archer, Venice High
School's 5-foot-7, 157-pound
tailback, do what he does in high


school at the next level?
First, you have to understand
what Archer does.
He's an "undersized" running
back who runs a 4.37-second 40-
yard dash. He's "hard to tackle in
a phone booth," as Venice head
coach John Peacock says, and
he's got a way of finding the end
zone.
Through only six games,
Archer has rushed for 1,037
yards on 106 carries, caught 15
passes for 293 yards, and scored
12 touchdowns either on the
ground or through the air. He
averages 11 yards every time he
touches the football.
But can he do it in major col-
lege football?
I don't see why not.
There is a growing trend at
the next level. You don't have to
have a big, bruising tailback to
be successful anymore. The
spread offense, the great equal-
izer, allows smaller, faster, more
elusive backs to get into open
space and make things happen.
Right up the road, Florida's
Demps and Rainey are proving
they can run the football in the


realm of smash-mouth, SEC
defenses.
Oklahoma State's Kendall
Hunter (5-foot-8, 190) is fifth in
the FBS (formerly Division I-A)
with 862 rushing yards this sea-
son. He leads the Big 12 as a
sophomore.
West Virginia's Noel Devine
(5-foot-8, 173) is second in the
Big East with 642 rushing yards.
As a sophomore he has 1,269
yards on 171 career attempts.
Oregon State's Jacquizz
Rodgers (5-foot-6, 180) leads the
Pac-10 with 718 yards as a true
freshman. That's O.J. Simpson,
Reggie Bush and Tailback U's
Pac-10.
Speaking of Tailback U,
Rodgers shredded USC for 186
yards and two touchdowns
against what is (somehow) still
considered one of the best
defensive fronts in the country.
In a world where everything
from computers to cell phones
are getting smaller, why not run-
ning backs?
Why not Dri Archer?

SUN NEWSPAPERS 9A







1OA SUN NEWSPAPERS WEDNESDAY OCT. 15, 2008


LET 'EM HAVE IT: SHOULD VENICE CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS BE ELECTED FROM DISTRICTS? CALL US AT 2071111.


Future is 'Bright'... for a select few


For whom? The Bright Futures Program works just
fine as it is, according to guest columnist Robin Stublen.
Fine for whom? Does it help Florida's educational system
assure that all students meet their potential? News sto-
ries indicate that Bright Futures students come from
welfare families and grab a lion's share of seats at state
four-year schools. This leaves other high school gradu-
ates who are less financially well off and less able to
ignore studies to earn money to enter the more costly
private schools. Oh, and yes, what does Bright Futures
do for the training of those fine students who will be fix-
ing my house and car and becoming great foremen in
our offices and factories?


Embarrassed. I can't
believe how incredibly
embarrassing it has be-
come to live in the city of
Venice. I can remember a
time not so long ago when
the sun shining in Venice
was a good thing. The new
mayor and the two new
council members, Lang
and Zavodnyik, were
warned several times that
the way they were com-
municating about city
business was inappropri-
ate and it needed to stop.
They chose to ignore all
the warnings, were above
the law and now it has
come back to bite them in
the form of a very costly
lawsuit. As for John Moore,
I'd like to know how he can
pretend not to know the
law when he is a retired
judge. When will all of us
come together and de-
mand their resignations?
We deserve an open and
honest government, and
they have proven inca-
pable of that. Now on to
Kit McKeon. If he cares at
all about our city, he'll drop
out of the race and spare
the citizens of Venice
another black eye.
DIY. So that's how you
do it: If you can't get some-
one to say what you want,
fire them. We have all
kinds of groupies in the
wings that will help close
the airport. Another thing
is, I wonder if the folks at
Venetian Golf & River Club
realize that they have
friends in high places. Aft-
er all, they're complaining
about the noise and pollu-
tion, and here we've got a
sympathetic city council
complaining about noise
and pollution and working
very hard to get rid of the
airport. Venetian Golf &
River Club must have
some real friends in there. I
wonder what they'll do for
money if we keep getting
rid of income sources for
the city. We're going to
have to cut back on ex-
penses some place -
maybe cut back on the
health care for city council.
You folks at Venetian Golf
& River Club, you could do
what the others have done
and next election, run for
office and get done what
you wanted.
Insured, incensed. The
other day on Glenn Beck's
radio show someone call-
ed in from Galveston and
said, "See, we can take care
of ourselves, we don't need


any help. We don't need
FEMA." He was making
derogatory comments
about New Orleans need-
ing so much help. Well, I
just saw CNN and these
people from Galveston are
begging for FEMA to help
them rebuild their busi-
nesses. And, of course,
they had no flood insur-
ance even though every-
body knows Galveston is
in the floodplain. Well,
how come in South Venice
we have to have flood
insurance where we are,
but Galveston didn't have
to? It doesn't make sense.
No end. Pay raises for
some city of Venice em-
ployees were excessive.
Everyone seems to be ex-
periencing difficult times,
especially financially. How-
ever, there seems to be an
exception: city of Venice
nonbargaining employees
must be smiling all the way
to the bank. About a year
and a half ago, the nonbar-
gaining employees were
given a middle-of-the-year
raise totaling more than
$320,000 for approximate-
ly 59 employees based on
some kind of a salary sur-
vey. That special $320,000
is now in the second year
and has now cost the taxpay-
ers approximately $640,000
to date. Next year, that sum
of $320,000 will have
grown to and cost the tax-
payers $960,000 for the
first three years, and that
will be part of their pay for-
ever. That does not include
regular raises given Oct. 1
each fiscal year during that
same period of time, for all
city employees. There nev-
er seems to be a stop to it,
regardless of the hard
times being felt by non-
government employees. If


we ran a business like Ven-
ice City Hall, it wouldn't
take long to go under. The
problem is there's no com-
petition for their services.
It's a monopoly. They make
mistakes, sometimes big
time, taxpayers bail them
out and management
ends up dividing $320,000.
Scam call. I'm just call-
ing in to warn people
about a new scam. I got off
the phone with a lady who
claimed to be calling about
my motor club insurance
renewal, and said if I paid
it by credit card, I would
get 25 percent, off which
would cost $56.70 instead
of $75. Well, no way. Aft-
erward, I called and spoke
to somebody who looked
into the computer and
said he had never heard of
such a rebate. Therefore, I
think people in an un-
guarded moment might
give somebody their credit
card number to renew
their motor club in-
surance, and they should-
n't do that. It's a scam.
No help. This is about
the crimes going on in
South Venice. We've had
three crimes at our resi-
dence. We live right off
Gentian Road. I have seen
the person who did it. The
person called and threat-
ened me while the police
were here, and they talked
with him on the phone;
but yet, they won't do a
thing about it. They told
me I can't be outside
watching my car at night
for damage, but to go
inside and watch out the
window; and if someone
shows up, call 9-1-1 and
they'd send a public ser-
vice agent. They left evi-
dence, a mail box on my
car. They've threatened me
over the phone I have
witnesses that they're
threatening me and I
have seen them leaving
the scene of the crime, and
they still won't do anything
about it. It's happened
three times now. I've lost
my car because of it,
because the damage got so
bad. This is just ridiculous.
They said talk to a lawyer,
but I can't afford a lawyer.
So, let'em have it on that


one. South Venice dep-
uties are not doing their
job.
Jealous? I been read-
ing the letters in the paper,
and there was quite a neg-
ative letter on Vern Bu-
chanan by Daniel Deren of
Sarasota. All I could get out
of it was that perhaps Mr.
Deren is a little bit jealous
of Mr. Buchanan, because
he keeps mentioning his
110-foot yacht over and
over. He's a successful
businessman, we know
that. I think he went a little
bit overboard (so to
speak). I do think, also,
that the lawns that are too
high should be cut and
yes, bill the property own-
ers to keep the yards and
neighborhoods in good
shape.
Sue them. Why is
someone in Sarasota suing
the city of Venice? What

rello is a big fan of plan-
ning. And he's planning to
win the Nov. 4 general elec-
tion for Sarasota County
sheriff against GOP con-
tender Tom Knight.
"I am the best candi-
date for sheriff because I
have the broadest base of
experience, because I care
about human beings and
because I am the only can-
didate with extensive
national law enforcement
executive experience," La-
varello said.
Lavarello, 47, said the
shrinking $86 million
SCSO budget is not a prob-
lem for a new sheriff. The
budget was reduced by
$1.8 million this fiscal year.
"I am the one candidate
who has said from the
beginning I do not think
our budget is out of con-
trol," he said. "I feel there
are areas of the budget we
can increase our efficiency
in."
Fuel and vehicle costs
are an area of possible
streamlining, he said. He

intends to scrutinize the
SCSO policy of personnel
taking home patrol cars.
'As part of the complete
staff study that I would
commence upon taking
office, I would also focus
on the need for a take-
home vehicle by each
member of the
agency," he said.
"I do support
the take-home
car policy for
sworn deputies
in the agency,
and positions
where a rapid
response would
aid in our mis- Lavarello
sion of public
safety. However with grow-
ing fuel costs exceeding
$1.3 million, I would look
at limiting off-duty use of
the vehicles immediately."
The No. 1 crime prob-
lem requiring the new
sheriff's attention is drugs.
"More than 85 percent
of our inmates currently
incarcerated for substance
abuse-related cases sub-
stantiate the need," he
said. "Substance-abuse
problems impact all other
areas of crime, including

Curing North Port's
drug problem and tighten-
ing the budget would be
high on Tom Knight's list of
priorities if elected Sara-
sota County sheriff.
"Electing a sheriff is like
hiring a CEO to run a large
organization, and I bring
to the voters a resume with
all of the right qualifica-
tions, not just one or two,"
Knight said. "We live in a
growing urban area with
37 miles of coastline, mak-
ing us a target for natural
disasters and evolving
crime problems. We can't
risk electing a sheriff who
is unqualified or under-
qualified."
The 20-year Florida
Highway Patrol veteran
supervised 342 FHP per-
sonnel in seven counties
with a budget of more
than $20 million.
Knight, a 45-year-old
Republican, faces Demo-
crat Curt Lavarello in the
Nov. 4 general election.
Knight said he intends


to add to law enforcement
staffing despite budgetary
challenges. The SCSO has
cut $1.8 million and 29
staff positions this year
from its $86 million bud-
get.
"Putting more deputies
on the streets of the North
Port area and throughout
the county will help the
SCSO better com-
bat all crime prob-
lems, and make
our citizens feel
safer," he said.
"Sarasota County
currently has one
of the state's low-
est ratios of deput-
ies to residents,
and I pledge to find Knight
innovative ways to
reallocate resources and
add more deputies."
Budget concerns could
be dealt with more effi-
ciently by employing a chief
financial officer from the
private sector, Knight said.
'Although there are
many capable employees
at the SCSO, I believe the
organization has grown to
a point that it must have a


finance expert managing
its budget as opposed to a
law enforcement officer,"
he said.
North Port needs a drug
task force to manage its
burgeoning problem with
drug trade, he said.
"North Port has now
exceeded Sarasota in pop-
ulation, and drug activity
in the area is gain-
ing," Knight said.
"In addition to
widespread pre-
scription drug
abuse, marijuana
dealing and use is
on the rise."
The SCSO rooted
out 30 marijuana
grow houses in
North Port in the
past 18 months out of about
35 countywide, Knight said.
"I would advocate the
creation of a full-blown
task force, and further
combining resources with
North Port Police Depart-
ment to fight North Port's
drug problem before it
worsens."

Partridge's Barbershop



is still making the



cut after 50 years

BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

The guys started Partridge's Barbershop, but the girls are in charge now. That,
and a move from Nokomis to Venice are about the only changes in the shop in the
last 50 years.
Oh, yes, there is one other difference. Joe, the talking mynah bird that the original
owners kept at the shop, has been replaced with a talking parrot named Cosmo.
The current owners of Partridge's Barbershop in the the Sweet Bay Supermarket Plaza
off U.S. 41 Bypass are Jenny Ernst and Martha Heath, decedents of the original owners.
The shop originally opened across from Captain Eddie's Family Seafood Restaurant at
U.S. 41 and Colonia Lane in Nokomis.
Ernst's grandfather Buck Partridge and her dad Dick Partridge along with Heath's dad
SidneyYawn were in the business together. Later Heath's uncle Wilmer Smith joined the
shop as well.
Today, Ernst and Heath employ Ernst's sister Lisa Murphy who became a barber in
1991 and Ernst's son Ryan Wilson, who joined the team in 2000. Wilson is the fourth
generation of Partridges to cut hair locally.
Heath's brother, whose name is also SidneyYawn, worked in the business for 20 years
before becoming a Sarasota County Sheriff's Public Service Aid. He's still a licensed bar-
ber and has his 1929 antique chair, his tools of the trade and a 1958 back bar mirror in a
mahogany frame stored at his house.

Barbering
Yawn loves the work he does as a service aid, but he misses the people he met in bar-
bering.
"The people I saw in the barbershop ranged from a retired CIA operative to a biker
and everything in between," he said. "It was a great place to get added
knowledge, too. If you needed to know how to do some-
thing, there was always someone to talk it over with."
As a small child, Yawn hung out at the barber-
shop with his dad.
"I think I fell asleep during my first haircut," he
said. "To this day, I still get sleepy in the chair."
By the time he left the business, Yawn was
doing third generation hair cuts. Now, he cuts
his grandchildren's hair at his home.
Les Jerger, who got his hair cut by the origi-
nal owners when the shop was in Nokomis,
remembers the smiles and friendliness of the
owners as well as their infinite patience with
Jerger's son.
"My son was 2 years old when he got his E E WAR
first hair cut from Buck Partridge," Jerger said. PARROT
"So there he was sitting in the chair screaming and sucking on a sucker that Buck
had given him."
John Corbin has been getting his hair cut at Partridge's for more than six years.
"I like the atmosphere and good people here," he said. "It has a neighborhood
feel, and I grew up in barbershops like this.
Tony Bollers, who recently retired and bought a house in Venice, said the shop
was recommended to him.
"I keep coming back because of the pretty women and Ryan, of course," he
said. "I tell people I go to the barbershop where the parrot is."
Cosmo is an added attraction at the shop. Whether he's sleeping or talking
everyone stops to chat with Cosmo.
Ernst said Cosmo's dialogue includes the phrases "birds don't talk," "wanna a
cold beer?" and "what kind do you want?" Cosmo is better behaved than his
predecessor who was known for his wolf whistles and bad words.

"We're trying to get Cos-
mo to say 'get a hair cut,'"
Heath said.
There's a mutual admi-


ration thing going
on between Part-
ridge's customers
and the staff. Heath
especially enjoys
the children whose
hair she cuts.
"One day a little
boy with lots of
freckles was getting
his hair cut, and I
asked him how he
got all of those
freckles," she said.
"He looked at me
and said, 'I swal-
lowed a dollar and
broke out in pen-
nies.' "


Look at us now
Not only do Ernst and
Health enjoy their cus-
tomers, they enjoy kicking
back and daydreaming
about what their dads
would think of what
they've accomplished.

"I think my dad thought
my brother would be the
barber," Ernst said. "But I
became a single mother
and went to barber
school."
Heath was a hair
stylist, but she
developed an al-
lergy to the chemi-
cals. That was about
the same time men
began wearing their
hair long.
"My dad gave me
a job in the shop to
help me out," she
said with a sly wink.
But she thinks he
really wanted her
there to cut the
guys' long hair.
"Sometimes we
like to think of our
dads sitting here
when it wasn't busy
and talking about
how good it would be
when the boys took over
the shop. It gives us a
laugh," Heath said. "Some-
times no matter what
plans you make, the girls
take over."

Mother Goose a success at Venice Public Library


BY DEBBIE AMSBAUGH
GUEST WRITER
On a recent Saturday,
Venice Public Library's
HeadYouth Librarian Jo Lise
(A.K.A. "Mother Goose")
hosted a pilot program for
12 girls. Her plan was to
have a lesson on invitation
writing and manners fol-
lowed by the opportunity
to practice what they had
just learned by inviting
their mothers or grand-
mothers to a tea. The girls
ranged in age up to fourth
grade. Most of them have
known "Mother Goose"
from the time they were
preschoolers attending
her Story Time.
As the young ladies
assembled in the library's
youth section, nervous
chatter with their moms
could be heard. They kept
looking around for a
friend. At 1:30 p.m., the
mothers and grandmoth-
ers said "good bye," and Jo
took over. She had a table
full of books on manners
and etiquette. They in-
cluded "Don't Slurp Your
Soup" to "The Emily Post
Book of Etiquette."
After a brief introduc-
tion, Jo demonstrated the
art of writing an invitation.


The girls had a chance to
practice or, as Hannah
said, "make a sloppy copy."
After they worked through
the rough draft, Jo distrib-
uted tea party stationary
that Laranne Ahern from
the Paper Pad donated.
Once the invitations were
written and addressed, the
class started designing
place mats for their guests
and themselves. Each girl
was able to express herself
through the placemat. The
library supplied the paper,
markers and stickers.
There were tea cups, cardi-
nals, Ferris wheels and
abstract creations. It was
an impressive display.
Debbie Amsbaugh gave a
brief talk on table manners
and how to make polite
conversation.
At 3 p.m. the guests
arrived. The girls escorted
their mothers and grand-
mothers to a beautifully
decorated room with clas-
sical music playing. There
were flowers on the tables,
delicious treats and tea.
Willa, a library volunteer,
served beverages for the
event.
The event was a smash-
ing success. By the end of
the tea party, there were
no strangers, just a lovely

and director Allan Kollar
deserve an award for their

through Oct. 19 and is a
must-see.
"They had authentic
Southern accents," said
Lisa Wheatley, who hails
from Alabama, after see-


ing the show. Each actor

great cast," said Kollar.
"That makes the job easy."

Society and Shannon
named her new friend
Eddie.
