Council candidates



grilled about airport


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Sue Lang
was elected to
Venice City
Council a year
ago, but a re-
cent candi-
dates forum
seemed to be
as much about
her views on
airport issues Carlesimo
as the candi-
dates'.
A crowd of
50 aviation en-
thusiasts well
versed in air-
port issues
asked all the
candidates
running for
council seat Lang
No. 2 about
their relationship with Lang and
whether they support her vision
for Venice Municipal Airport.
Candidate Kit McKeon sup-
ported Lang, Ed Martin and
Ernie Zavodnyik in their suc-
cessful council campaigns last
year and has touted himself as
holding similar views on many
issues, including the airport.
Candidates Emilio Carlesimo
and John Osmulski deny any ties
to Lang and used the Venice
Aviation Society Inc.'s forum to
tie McKeon to Lang, who is per-
ceived byVASI members as anti-
airport.
"McKeon has a close liaison

with council-
woman Lang,"
Carlesimo
said. "They are
like-minded.
We have proof
of that. Kit's e-
mails from Sue
Lang ... if he
gets elected,
he brings that
with him. It's
another piece
of baggage
that comes
along with it."
At earlier
forums Car-
lesimo and
Osmulski call-
ed for McKeon
to withdraw


after his e-mails were subpoe-
naed in connection with the
ongoing Sunshine lawsuit
against Lang and other sitting
council members.
Jets... maybe
All three candidates said pre-
viously they support the contin-
ued use of small jets, but when
pressed for specifics by aviation
business owners, McKeon and
Osmulski qualified their an-
swers.
Asked if nonprofit Agape
Flights should be allowed to ex-
pand, Carlesimo said "yes,"
Osmulski said "possibly" and
McKeon said "maybe."

Feds talk River Road money


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

The Myakka River Trading
Company gas station on the cor-
ner of U.S. 41 and River Road
was the gathering place Tuesday
for a small band of federal, state
and local officials to discuss
funding options for improve-
ments to River Road.
The assembly included Re-
publican U.S. representatives
Vern Buchanan and John Mica,
both on the House Transpor-
tation and Infrastructure Com-
mittee, Sarasota County Chair
Shannon Staub and North Port
City Commissioner Fred Tower
III.
The four pored over a map
showing the entire length of the
roadway, which runs about 12
miles from Interstate 75 to
Englewood. Raising and widen-
ing the road to four lanes has
been estimated to cost from
$130 million to $150 million and
has been divided into four phas-
es. The phase under discussion
Tuesday stretched from U.S. 41
to 1-75.
"How much of the engineer-
ing and design has been done?"
Mica asked.
"Ninety percent, from 41 to I-
75," Staub replied.
"Is it a lack of money, or the
time to get it done?" Mica in-
quired.
"Money," Staub said. "We're
ready to get it done. We need $90
million for this section."
That didn't count an addi-
tional $20 million needed to
acquire right of way, said Jim
Harriott, Sarasota County gener-
al manager of public works.
Mica said that Buchanan was
"perfectly positioned" to acquire

federal funding to help River
Road.
"He's got the only seat on
Transportation," Mica said. "He's
going to pick his priorities and
I'll support them, whatever they
are."
Behind
River Road appeals to Bu-
chanan due to its combined im-
portance as a vital evacuation
route from the Cape Haze Pen-
insula to 1-75 and its relevance
as a central artery in the growing
South County area.
"North Port is (the county's)
biggest city," Buchanan said.
"And they're behind in their


infrastructure. That's why I feel
so passionate about River Road."
"And our projected buildout
is 200,000 people," Tower said.
"We're at 55,000 now."
Mica and Buchanan made it
clear the road would not get
improved solely on federal funds
- that it was necessary to get
more help through city impact
fees, a commitment from the
county and public-private part-
nerships.
Staub and Tower assured
them the ball was already rolling
on that score, with $8 million
coming from North Port, $2 mil-

North Venice village plan gets OK Sarasota, Orioles to talk


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Three years in the making,
the Gulf Coast Foundation of
Venice finally received approval
by the Venice Planning Com-
mission this week for a rezone
application. It heads next to city
council for its approval.
Despite some concerns, the
commission approved the re-
zone by a vote of 6-1 on Oct. 21.
The project goal is lofty -
create a village with multi-in-
come housing in a mixed-use
residential-commercial setting.
It's a unique design, being
closely watched all across Florida.
On Tuesday it tested the commis-
sion's commitment to "new ur-
banism" and "smart growth" prin-
ciples over suburban sprawl.
"It's all about building a good
community," said Teri Hansen,
president of the Gulf Coast
Foundation of Venice, which is
developing the project.
"We had three goals: a neigh-
borhood we'd all want to live in,
sustainable economically,
environmentally and socially -
and finally, reapplicable so
developers would look at this
and say it's good to build a com-
munity and not just homes. It
has met all three goals."
The project "brings back ur-
banism to (a nation) that took a
long detour to suburbanism,"
said Chad Minor with Kimley-
Horn's Urban Resource Group.
"It's a diverse range of housing in
an environmentally friendly,
walkable" setting.
"We're hoping to bring back
that vision John Nolen had."

Sarasota city and county offi-
cials plan to find out whether
this area is for the birds when
they meet with the Baltimore
Orioles this week, exploring
options on bringing the team to
Sarasota as its spring training
home.
"No discussions have taken
place yet," said Sarasota City
Manager Robert Bartolotta.
"They're trying to set up a first
meeting."
Bartolotta said the purpose of
the meeting will be to hear the
Orioles out and find out where

community east of Interstate 75.


Laurel Road and on the south by
Border Road east of Interstate
75, the 146-acre project calls for
a maximum of 1,100 dwelling
units. Forty-five percent of the
parcel is on wetlands.
The buildings are decidedly
not in the Northern Italian or
Mediterranean theme by design,
architects said. Instead, the pro-
ject hinges on creative use of
uneven rooftops to create the
new urbanism setting.
In the original plan one third
of the units were committed to
"work force housing," although


GCFV was unwilling to commit
to an exact number of units due
to uncertain economic and
housing conditions. The com-
mission briefly considered mak-
ing it a stipulation, but decided
against that course.
Commission Member Sid
Shrauger aired concerns the
work force housing units might
not be affordable.
"That influences my reaction
to some other requests you
made in this," Shrauger said. In

"I know they're leaving Fort
Lauderdale," he said. "(Talks will
be) about their needs and what-
ever they want to share with us."
Bartolotta said talks are still
going on with the Boston Red
Sox, who are not out of the pic-
ture yet despite the fact that
the Sarasota County Commis-
sion has indicated mixed feel-
ings about helping to fund a $70
million stadium for them.
Meanwhile, Fort Myers offi-
cials are scrambling to keep the
Red Sox at City of Palms Park,
where they have a lease through
2019.

$1 million for EOC included in spending bill


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


A new Sarasota County
Emergency Operations Center is
$1 million closer to reality, thanks
to a new bill recently signed into
law by President Bush.
The EOC money was included
in an omnibus spending bill -
H.R. 2638: Consolidated Security,
Disaster Assistance and Continu-
ing Appropriations Act 2009 -
that incorporates homeland secu-
rity funding sought by Republican
U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan of
Florida's District 13. Bush signed
the bill into law Sept. 30.
"Sarasota County has been
fortunate to avoid serious


storms in recent years, but it
needs to have a facility that can
withstand a major hurricane,"
Buchanan said. "This funding
will improve the county's ability
to serve the needs of the com-
munity and assure public safety
services that would be needed in
a severe storm."
The funding will aid in relo-
cating county emergency oper-
ations from the existing facility
at 1660 Ringling Blvd., which
was built in 1974 and can only
handle the 110-mph winds of a
Category 2 storm. A secondary
location has been secured 6
miles away at Wilkinson
Elementary School in the event
of a bigger storm.


Plans
The school has impact glass,
is out of the storm surge at a
higher elevation and can with-
stand winds of about 150 mph,
which equates to a Category 4
or 5 storm, according to Sara-
sota County Emergency Man-
agement Chief Ed McCrane.
However McCrane said a new,
fully equipped, stand-alone
site is preferable to dividing
the EOC between two sites.
"As soon as the money comes
through we'll probably apply it
toward the first couple of phases
of the new EOC's four-phase
planning process," McCrane
said. "Most of that million will
probably lead us up to the initial


planning and development
stage, up until just before we
break ground."
Phase 1, McCrane said, will
encompass information gather-
ing and site selection and will
cost $168,000. The entire pro-
ject, which could be 50,000
square feet, has been estimated
to cost $16 million to $20 mil-
lion, depending on whether the
county includes a full-blown
data center. Candidate sites cur-
rently include an area near 1301
Cattlemen Road or Twin Lakes
Park.
Phase 2 will include prelimi-
nary floor-plan specifications
and design, McCrane said, esti-
mating that the entire project


could take between three and
five years to complete, depend-
ing on acquiring additional
funding and organizing con-
struction.
"The million is a good
start," McCrane said. "Defi-
nitely, the county commis-
sioners and administration
are all committed to making
this happen and figuring out
a way to pay for it. We're look-
ing to take the best practices
from every EOC that's been
built in the Southeast U.S. in
the last couple of years and
incorporating them into our
design."

Amendment leaves some uncertain


BY GERALD A.
ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Amendment 4 on the
Nov. 4 ballot is causing
some concern, even among
environmentalists who
have overwhelmingly sup-
ported it.
The proposal calls for
permanent tax relief for
permanent conservation
easements and temporary
tax benefits for shorter-
term conservation land
uses.
Could an owner get a
tax break, then develop
the land when the real
estate slump ends?
The question has many
environmentalists vexed.
They recall past abuses of
tax incentives. One early
proponent, Florida Tax
Watch, now wonders if the
ballot question has been


oversimplified.
There are two parts to
Amendment 4. The first
would eliminate all prop-
erty taxes on land with
conservation attributes set
aside in perpetuity. The
second would reduce such
taxes for a shorter period
of time. Property apprais-
ers would have to estab-
lish a value on a parcel
based on "character of
use," not its full potential.
Large landowners would
get a big advantage, in the
opinion of Florida Tax
Watch.
Taxpayers, especially
those in rural counties,
would take a big hit
because of the potential to
remove millions of dollars
from the tax rolls.
It would be up to the
state Legislature to deter-
mine how long land would
have to be preserved to


qualify for the shorter
term reduction.
A coalition of envi-
ronmental groups advo-
cates a minimum of 10
years. It also wants
landowners to submit a
plan annually that iden-
tifies wildlife habitat
and water resources on
their properties.
And if any landowner
withdraws from an agree-
ment, the coalition wants
it fined.
Most of the land that
would be transferred to
the new program is
already getting a tax
break under an agricul-
tural exemption, accord-
ing to the Florida Wildlife
Federation, one of the
earliest proponents of the
amendment.
Approval by 60 percent
of voters is necessary to
pass the amendment.


Clarifications
The 1.75 millage rate figure mentioned
in an Oct. 15 story about the school board's
plans for future budget cuts referred only to
the capital portion of the budget. The
school district's total millage to support its
budget is 7.045 mills, which includes the
1.75 millage rate for capital expenditures,
3.717 mills for the required local effort part
of the millage and discretionary operating,
supplemental operating and voted operat-
ing portions.


A story in Sunday, Oct. 19, edition of the
Venice Gondolier Sun on how to become a
Habitat for Humanity homeowner was
unclear about income qualifications. Family
income can be from various sources, such
as wages, spousal or child support, pen-
sions, disability payments, public assistance
or Social Security. If income is from employ-
ment, you must have been employed for at
least six months. For specific income
requirements, call Habitat for Humanity of
South Sarasota County at 493-6606.

LET 'EM HAVE IT: DO YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS THAT YOUR VOTE MAY NOT BE PROPERLY COUNTED THIS YEAR? CALL US AT 207-1111.


I thought that only happened in Chicago

Unlisted. I just received a flier from Kathy Dent, supervisor of elections. It was
addressed to my address in the name of someone who hasn't lived here for more than
10 years. I have been told the gentleman since died. I don't know if that's true or not. I
hope that her mailing list is not as bad as her voting list.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Dent told us state law requires her to carry voters on the rolls for a fixed
period of time unless a voter requests a change or information about a death is provided by
the Bureau of Vital Statistics, which may or may not have a record of it, depending on where it
occurred.


Unbearable. I have just
returned to my Florida
home from up North. I
headed for my senior
group at the Salvation
Army, which I have done
for several years. Upon my
arrival, I noticed what a
drastic change had taken
place at the senior group.
When I left, there were 50
to 60 in attendance every
Tuesday, but now there are
about 25 to 30. Where have
all my friends gone? I've
found that they are sys-
tematically being forced
out to make room for the
teens. My question is,
why? It is such a shame to
see the loving senior group
go downhill as it has. In
these trying times, we
seniors need to have
something to look forward
to make life a bit more
bearable.
Proud. I would like to
comment on the article in
Let 'em Have It about the
lack of discipline on the
Venice High School foot-
ball team. My son is a
recent transfer to the area
and on the Venice football
team, and you folks here in
Venice have no idea what
it's like to be on a team that
lacks discipline. We came
from a team where we saw
kids doing things that
were covered up and
pushed under the rug by
coaches because they
were football players.
That's not done here in
Venice. The coaching staff
here has taken stances


when kids have done off-
the-field antics. They have
suspended kids and
helped the kids to be more
responsible and better
members of our commu-
nity. As far as penalties in
the game, it was the sec-
ond game of the year and
that's when most penalties
are incurred because the
team is just working on
getting the kinks out.
There were fewer penal-
ties in the game after that.
As far as celebrations on
the field well, I enjoy
watching the celebrations.
They do it to congratulate
the other players on a job
well done. It's never in a


taunting manner towards
the other team. The
Golden Gate coach, who
we just played, called our
team a class act. Be glad
our team has a reason to
celebrate. The coaching
staff here leads by example
by showing respect for the
opposing team, and they
really are trying to help
teach the team to become
men and be accountable
for their own actions. I'm
very proud of the coaching
staff and the team.
Life sentence. Stop
crime at its source. Support
Planned Parenthood.
The math. No more free
lunches for city hall. Good

to see that happy-meal
time may be coming to an
end atVenice City Hall and
a few other city depart-
ments. What people are
saying has gone on for
years, too long for sure at
taxpayers' expense. There
should never be time
when, with taxpayers'
money, someone is being
paid for work not per-
formed. If this were done
in the private sector and
you had competition,
you'd be out of business.
No more 40 hours of pay
for 37 1/2 hours of work or
35 hours of work for some
management employees
who took an hour or so for
lunch. Employees should
schedule for one-half hour
for lunch, work from 7:30
to 4 or 8 to 4:30. This is the
norm in the private sector.
For employees who have
taken an hour for lunch
over the years, they should
work from 8 to 5, or 7:30 to
4:30. Again, the norm. No
more free lunches on the
taxpayers. A conservative


estimate says it has been
costing the taxpayers
approximately $150,000
per year for paid lunch
time. It adds up to about
$750,000 for just five years.
Amazing, isn't it? Just do
the math. Nothing magic
here. Happy meals on your
own time, please.
Bread line. If Palin
weren't so pretty and such a
personality, she'd be toast.
Burning issue. This
should be entitled, Lights
are on, but nobody's
home. How could every-
body leave the high school
ball field Thursday night,
Oct. 9, and leave all those
blazing lights on? It's hard
to understand how this
could happen.
Perspective. I was very
disturbed to see all the
attacks on the column by
Mary Kay Ruppel. I really
enjoy reading her column.
She has a wonderful sense
of humor and she's a very
gifted writer. I'm glad she's
informing people about
things that we would not


otherwise know. I don't
have any problem with
anything she says. In fact,
Mary Kay Ruppel is the
main reason I buy your
newspaper, and I'm really
glad she's a columnist for
your newspaper. She
brings a perspective that
we need. She balances out
the information that we
otherwise would not know.
So, I'm calling in to support
your columnist, Mary Kay
Ruppel, and to tell you I'm
so glad she writes for the
Venice Gondolier Sun.
Report it. I'm calling
about the woman who
called about the weed
whackers killing the rab-
bits. Hopefully you'll
encourage her to expose it
because that is animal
cruelty. Hopefully, she will
call the police department
or animal services. We
hardly see the little bun-
nies around, but even if it
wasn't a bunny, or a bird
or anything else, it's still a
live being. I hope she
reports it to someone.

Voters to decide on amendments


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


The presidential, senate,
congressional and local govern-
ment races may be getting the
most attention for early voting,
but voters will also weigh in on
six proposed amendments to
the Florida Constitution.
For the benefit of those unfa-
miliar with the proposed amend-
ments, each is detailed below -
excepting Amendments 5, 7 and
9, which have been withdrawn
from the ballot with sum-
maries, pros and cons as provid-
ed by the League of Women
Voters of Florida.
Amendment 1 repeal
of alien land law
Summary: This amendment
would delete provisions autho-
rizing the Legislature to regulate
or prohibit ownership, inheri-
tance, disposition and posses-
sion of real estate property by
aliens ineligible for citizenship.
Pro: The amendment would
remove what some consider to
be outdated and discriminato-
ry language from the Florida
Declaration of Rights.
Con: Constitutional action is
not necessary because no cur-
rent Florida statute exists bar-
ring ownership of property by
aliens ineligible for citizenship.
Amendment 2 gay
marriage ban
Summary: This amendment
asserts marriage is the legal
union of only a man and a
woman and declares other
unions would not be recog-
nized as legal or valid.
Pro: Some contend the
amendment would protect chil-
dren by ensuring that only the
union between a man and
woman would be legal in Florida.
Con: Health care and pension
benefit plans covering unmar-
ried couples living together,


MORE INFORMATION
For more information on the six proposed amendments to the
Florida Constitution, visit:
www.flamendments.org, a Web site developed by the
Collins Center for Public Policy Inc., an independent, nonparti-
san, nonprofit organization devoted to helping Florida solve its
toughest issues
www.lwvfla.org, the Web site of the League of Women
Voters of Florida, and click on "Election Info"


which are currently legal, might
be adversely affected.
Amendment 3 -
hurricane and energy
tax break
Summary: This amendment
authorizes the Legislature to pro-
hibit consideration of improve-
ments to residential property -
such as increasing wind resis-
tance or installing renewable
energy source devices as fac-
tors in assessing the property's
value.
Pro: Hurricane safety might
be improved and real estate val-
ues could increase.
Con: Individuals' savings
might be minimal; plus, the
amendment does not apply to
new construction.
Amendment 4 -
conservation land
tax break
Summary: Applying to prop-
erty taxes beginning in 2010,
this provision would favor
landowners preserving their
property in its natural state.
Pro: It may encourage more
conservation of land in its nat-
ural state.
Con: Local revenues could
decrease; plus, policies already
exist favoring those who pre-
serve their land.
Amendment 6 work-
ing-waterfront tax break
Summary: Due owners of
marinas and other waterfront
properties finding it hard to
resist developer dollars, access


to these properties has lessened.
The amendment would require
those properties to be taxed
based on their current use rather
than on a "highest and best" use.
Pro: The measure could
reduce taxes on waterfront
properties, reducing their own-
ers' desire to sell to developers.
This, in turn, could keep public
access to these properties at
current levels.
Con: Local revenues would
suffer and the Legislature
would be allowed to define
terms and impose conditions
and limitations on any tax
breaks for property owners.
Amendment 8 -
local-option sales tax for
community college funding
Summary: Amendment 8
would require the Legislature to
pass a law giving counties the
authority to levy a local-option
sales tax to supplement com-
munity college funding. The tax
would have to be approved by
voters. The measure would
expire after five years, requiring
voters to reauthorize it.
Pro: Community colleges, a
lower-cost alternative and gate-
way to higher learning, would
benefit. Plus, voters would have
the option to renew or repeal
the tax after five years.
Con: Increased sales taxes
could burden lower-income
families, and the funding bur-
den would shift from state to
local authorities.

McCain campaign




coming to Sarasota


BY TERRY O'CONNOR
STAFF WRITER


The presidential campaign
trail runs through Sarasota
Thursday, with Republican can-
didate John McCain's appearance
designed to helped boost his
chances of taking the state.
The doors open for McCain's
talk at 3 p.m. Thursday at the
4,000-seat Robarts Arena on
Fruitville Road. McCain is expect-
ed to speak at 6 p.m.
McCain is in danger of becom-
ing the first GOP presidential can-
didate to lose the state since Bob
Dole in 1996. Florida voted
Republican in six of the last seven
presidential elections, but McCain
is 8 points down to the Illinois sen-
ator in the latest Harris Poll.
The Sunshine State's 27 elec-
toral votes are crucial to McCain's
chances. But, unlike 2000 and
2004, Democratic rival Barack
Obama has more money and
momentum going into the final
two weeks of the election. He's
spent $39 million in Florida
alone.
"A state that was leaning
Republican six or eight weeks ago
now is clearly a battleground
state," said Bob Jackson, professor
of political science at Florida State
University. "Obama has raised
and spent more than any other
candidate in history. ... Obama's
resources and the economic crisis
have put Florida in play."
State Republican leaders
planned a two-pronged end-game
strategy in Orlando over the week-
end attack Obama's platform
and muscle up a get-out-the-vote
push to give McCain a winning
boost before the Nov. 4 election.


Sarasota is in critical voting
territory for Florida. The Tampa-
Orlando region includes four in
10 Florida voters.
"It's always about the I-4 corri-
dor," said Susan MacManus, a
political science professor at the
University of South Florida in
Tampa.
All over
Obama has spent $21 million
on Florida TV ads four times
more than McCain.
But McCain, whose campaign
rallied repeatedly in landing the
presidential nomination, can't be
counted out. Gov. Charlie Crist on
Saturday called McCain "a come-
from-behind guy. He did it in the
primary here and I think he's
going to do it 17 days from today."
Florida Republicans have
grumbled about McCain's thin TV
presence in the state and wonder
why Crist hasn't cut any TV ads
for him. Crist said he hasn't been
asked to by McCain's camp.
"Charlie Crist has been going
all over the state to campaign for
him," said Sarasota rally organiz-
er Eric Robinson.
The Sarasota rally will feature
small businesses, organizers say.
Small business owners will be
highlighted as will McCain's big-
picture economic stances.
"He's the only person with a
plan at getting people back to
work," Robinson said. "He's the
one concerned with small-busi-
ness owners. The small-business
owners are not the ones who got
us into this mess, but they are the
ones who will get us out."

PLAN from Page 1A
the end, he gave his "en-
thusiastic endorsement of
the concept."
The project includes a
mix of housing types, like
single-family detached
homes with small front
yards allowing porches to
encourage neighborhood
conversation, townhous-
es, multi-family apart-
ments and condos, live-
work artist units and ac-
cessory units.
Mixed-use commercial
centers with two- to four-
story buildings are at the
north and south end of the
parcel. In between the
centers are clusters of resi-
dential units along Bridges
Boulevard.
It's the only other north-
south connector for resi-
dents west of 1-75 on
Laurel Road. The road will
provide residents east of
Laurel on 1-75 with an
escape route should an
accident on Laurel at 1-75
block access.
Height
Some of the mixed-use
buildings in the northern
"town center" and south-
ern "neighborhood cen-
ter" could reach 60 feet in
height a concern for
some commission mem-
bers. Most of the single
family residences are 35
feet, while multi-family
units go up to 50 feet.
The height was needed,
said Totems Architecture
Inc.'s Jerry Sparkman.
"To make it simple, you
need a density of people,
enough rooftops" to create
a village atmosphere. "It
needed to be compact,
and available to a wide
range of people."
New Commission Mem-
ber Jim Bennett, who re-
sides in Venetian Golf &
River Club, was the only
"no" vote.
"I am not a height fan at
all," he said. "If we are
going to have height to
subsidize lower cost hous-
ing, they need to take into
account ... the negative
impact on neighboring


properties. I don't see how
I can support this exciting
and positive concept."
The commission added
a final stipulation that
developers meet with the
Venetian Golf & River Club
residents to gather their
comments and concerns
prior to city council con-
sidering the rezone appli-
cation.
VGRC resident Michael
Rigdon, active in the
homeowners association,
was in attendance at the
meeting and said he sup-
ported the concept.
"We'd like nothing bet-
ter than to bicycle down
the street to go shopping.
On the other hand, we
haven't seen the plans.
There will be concerns
about the height and loca-
tion of some of the build-
ings," Rigdon said.
Jeff Boone, land use
attorney for GCFV pointed
out the plans had been
available on the city Web
site. New city rules requir-
ing neighborhood meet-
ings, he said, didn't apply to
this project because it be-
gan three years ago. Never-
theless, a number of com-
munity meetings were held
early on, and GCFV agreed
to hold another, hopefully
within a week or so.
J&J rezone approved
In other action, the
commission approved the
rezone of a 394-acre parcel
owned by J&J Properties
further east of The Bridges
project, also bordered by
Laurel Road to the north
and Border Road on the
south.

"Obviously, we'd have to look at
the return on investment in terms of
what the economic impact with one
team would be versus the other
team," Bartolotta said. "Any offers
would be based on the value they
would bring to the community."
Questions
He said the Orioles would proba-
bly come considerably cheaper than
the Red Sox, due to their losing


ROAD from Page 1A
lion from the West Villages
Improvement District and
another million or so from
Sarasota County toward
improving the intersection
of U.S. 41 and River Road.
Top of the list
Mica said the Trans-
portation Committee was
"paying close attention to
connectors into the In-
terstate and they will get a
top priority." He said the
current transportation bill
expires Sept. 30, 2009, and
the next one will offer pos-
sibly the most dramatic
impact in transportation
financing over the next


record over the last decade.
"I don't think any offers to
Baltimore would be the same as they
were to the Red Sox," he said, adding
that the Orioles might have further
interest in coming here because they
already have a minor league training
facility in place at Twin Lakes Park.
"The offer would look very differ-
ent," agreed Ken Shelin, vice mayor
of Sarasota, "because the Red Sox are
a first-tier team and the Orioles are
not."
Shelin said the Orioles might


two decades, due to
changes in funding, iden-
tification of projects and
policy.
"If the (2009) bill is what
we've agreed to already, we
want to be at half a trillion
dollars," Mica said. "That's
double what we had be-
fore. (Committee) mem-
bers got about $40 million
with the last bill. With this
bill, you could easily dou-
ble that. Then if we do the
creative financing, the
public-private partner-
ships, we could get that
puppy up over $100 mil-
lion."

make do with a refurbished Ed

Shelin hopes the initial meeting
with the Orioles will reveal whether
they are interested in coming to
Sarasota and, if so, what they are
looking for.
"What would they like to have us
provide them?" he said. "Then the
staff will bring that information back

supplies to Haiti and other
Caribbean islands.
"I guess, in fact ... the
mission is honorable," Mc-
Keon said. "I can't tell you
why I wouldn't support it.
If they were talking about
bringing in cargo aircraft
(however) I would not sup-
port it. I would judge it on
its merits."
Osmulski said he would
support expansion of
Agape to include more air-
craft and "possibly more
jets."
"I would have to look at
it ... as long as it would be
compatible with the air-
port," he said.
Carlesimo said he sup-
ports the current types of
jets that already use the
airport.
"When I hear a corpo-
rate jet, I hear the sound of
money coming into the
economy," he said.
Safety zones
All three candidates
agreed that pilot safety
should come first in deter-
mining safety protection
zones surrounding the
runways, but they all also
said the Lake Venice Golf
Club should be left alone.
Some protection zones
the Federal Aviation Ad-
ministration might require
bulge into parts of the
course.
"Let the golf course stay
as it is, if possible," Car-
lesimo said. "The primary
concern should be pilot
safety.
McKeon wants the pro-
tection zones "within bal-
ance of airport property ...
complimentary with the
golf course."
"I would like fences to
stay where they are ... not
change the golf course,"
Osmulski said, "If there is a
safety question ... if we
need to extend that to use
a runway, then that's very
open to negotiation. Many
areas (already have) devia-
tions (from protection
zones). (The FAA) will al-
low them in the future, and
negotiate if we need to
move around the golf
course. But safety is essen-
tial; I would never com-
promise safety."
Noise
What about airport
noise?
"It doesn't bother me,"
Carlesimo said.
Osmulski said residents
who purchased homes
near the airport should
have known there would
be noise. But, he added,
the city could do more to
make sure people who
consider purchasing a
home near the airport are
made aware of the airport.
He said he'd require an
earthen buffer to separate
airport noise from the
apartments across the
street and enhance the air-
port.
McKeon agreed that
purchasers have to be alert
to where they're buying.
"(We) have to tell the
person, 'You did buy in an
area of concern,' he said.
"In some ways, it's buyer
beware."
McKeon appeared to
agree with Osmulski that a
Part 150 Noise Study was
necessary, parting with
Lang on this issue.
It "will tell us what noise
profile we are talking
about. If you have the
facts, you can remove the
emotion out of it," said
McKeon.
McKeon also departed
from Lang's views by say-
ing he "absolutely" sup-
ported maintaining air-
port properties for avia-
tion uses.


Restricting aircraft
All the candidates said
they did not support
restricting the types of air-
craft that use the airport.
McKeon said pilots
know whether the run-
ways are long enough for a
take-off or landing.
Osmulski and Car-
lesimo agreed.
When asked about
complaints about flight


schools that practice
touch-and-go landings on
the runways, Carlesimo
and Osmulski said it was-
n't an issue.
"I don't know we want
to effect change in that,"
Carlesimo.
"To be honest, it hasn't
been a nuisance for me,"
Osmulski said.
Restricting revenues
Lang would like the rev-
enue from the city-run
mobile home park on air-
port property to go to the
city, not to the airport
enterprise fund, said one
questioner. Do you sup-
port that?
"We cannot sell off any
more parcels until we get
something there to sus-
tain" the airport, Osmulski
said. "I disagree ... until
there is something infra-
structure-wise that will
make itself self-sustaining.
"I don't think (the pro-
posed) marina was a bad
idea. We should have test-
ed opening and closing
the bridges every 20 min-
utes to see if it would work.
A marina is not the only
answer. There are lots of

harmony with the airport."
"If you sell off proper-
ties, then I don't know
what will take its place,"
said Carlesimo.
"The way it is right now
it's self-sustaining," Mc-
Keon said, adding that it
needs to generate more
income.
"Do you support limit-
ing airport hangars, as Sue
Lang proposes?" asked
another questioner.
"I don't see any prob-
lem with T-hangars," Mc-
Keon said. "I think it's con-
sistent with where we are
trying to go."
"I have no problem
with hangars or tie-
downs," said Osmulski.
Fuelish
Another questioner ask-
ed about Lang's idea of the
city, instead of the fixed-
base operators, selling
fuel.
"I don't agree with that,"
said Carlesimo.
"Private enterprise will
do a better job," Osmulski
said. With 43 legal actions
pending against the local
government, it had better
things to get involved in,
he said.

McKeon said he was
open to the idea, but the
timing might not be right.
"There are airports that
do that (successfully). The
issue here is our history ...

lems," McKeon said.
Limiting hours
Osmulski and Carlesi-
mo were against restrict-

to the idea.

said.
McKeon said that when
he lived near Washington

limit flight operations, to
between 6 a.m. and 11

"If something like that
would assist us, I think it
would be worth consider-
ing," said McKeon.
"Are you comparing

said.

get you to say, 'Let's see if
we can make this the best
5,000-foot runway in Flor-
ida?' asked former Air-
port Advisory Board Mem-
ber John Yurosko.
Yes, said Osmulski and
Carlesimo.
"That's a bit of a loaded
question," McKeon said.
"If compatible with histor-
ical uses, yes."

OUR VIEW



Rosenfeld for Florida House District 70


S ince his election to the House
District 70 seat two years ago, Rep.
Doug Holder has done a cred-
itable, if unspectacular job. He's a lik-
able fellow who clearly cares about his
district, even though he's still a relative
newcomer.
Despite those qualities, we believe
there's good reason for a change this
year. We're particularly impressed with
Holder's opponent, Democrat Sam
Rosenfeld, who has a sharp mind and
analytical ability that we find refreshing.
He has a strong grasp of the issues fac-
ing Floridians and was able to convinc-
ingly articulate his moderate positions
with subtlety.
For that reason, we recommend
Rosenfeld for the seat in this district,
which stretches from Siesta Key to
Englewood and North Port.
Holder, the Republican, said his
greatest asset was that he works "well
with other people." A friendly personal-


ity can account for much.
He also seems to be responsive to the
community. He helped with Legacy
Park funding in Venice. And when Pine
View School was at risk of losing fund-
ing last year, he helped a local parents'
lobbying effort that resulted in the
restoration of funding. That fix was nec-
essary, however, because of unintended
consequences in a bill that citizens, not
legislators, caught.
The problem is that Holder seems a
bit too quick to line up behind state
party powers. And we believe he is too
doctrinaire in his positions.
For example, he is against taxes, no
matter what. Property taxes are one
thing, but he wouldn't budge in the
slightest, even when asked if he'd con-
sider an Internet sales tax, which might
level the competitive playing field for
local businesses, or an increase in the
cigarette tax, which might support
health care programs.


Rosenfeld impressed us with his com-
mand of a wide range of issues and his
ability to offer nuanced solutions. He
seems to be someone who will look to
build consensus in the center. He told us
that would be his goal in the state House.
Rosenfeld characterized himself as a
moderate. This comes from his back-
ground as a dentist operating what
amounts to small businesses in his native
Pennsylvania. Rosenfeld said that experi-
ence gave him a strong feel for the prob-
lems of small businesses, such as the
question of providing medical care for
employees at a reasonable cost.
As for the sinking state budget,
Rosenfeld favors re-examining sales-tax
exemptions and taxing Internet sales.
"Giving retailers online a 7-percent
discount is not protecting business peo-
ple here," he said.
He saw a need for studying the bud-
get to find places where cuts could be
made, but wasn't about to haul out the


broadax.
"Any large department would need
to be examined," he said, but wholesale
cuts would likely mean further job cuts,
which would only add to the rising
unemployment rate and foreclosures.
Rosenfeld was against Amendment
1, arguing it gained taxpayers little while
shipping millions out of Sarasota to
poorer counties. He called ideas to con-
vert state highways into private toll
roads "a joke."
Holder has tried to paint him as a
"tax-and-spend liberal" guilt by asso-
ciation with the Democratic Party -
but Rosenfeld insists that is not the case.
"I believe less government is better,
but there are times when individuals are
unable to help themselves and govern-
ment needs to step in," he said.
That seems like a smart, moderate
approach to us.
We recommend Sam Rosenfeld for
state representative from District 70.

My brother, Richard,
who is a nationally and in-
ternationally known econ-
omist, has his take on the
whole economic mess.
When I talked to him,
he had just returned from
Albania where he was sent
by the state department to
help with the country's fi-
nances, which Rich said
were in fine shape, better
than ours. (It certainly
makes one wonder why
the great minds aren't all
working on our problems.)
However, he was sort of
glad to get away from the
fray over here.
He said his phone has
not stopped ringing since
the financial mess started.
He has had calls from lots
of publications looking for
articles and from con-
gressmen looking for his
feelings about the bailout
bill.
He thinks we will mud-
dle our way through this
but cautions that we are in
uncharted territory. No
one has had experience
dealing with this kind of
trouble, thus it is very hard
to predict the outcome. (As
all economists do, he
hedges his bets.)
He felt that the bailout
bill was necessary but
hated its final form, which
was loaded with pork and
other things to placate dif-
ferent people.
He said that the whole
secret is confidence. If the
public is confident, then
the economy improves;
thus, gaining that confi-
dence is the key to success.
He thinks that other con-
ditions will help make a
difference. Fast-falling oil
prices which might help
transportation and food
costs, for instance can
go a long way to boosting
confidence ... although I
never thought I'd be so
happy to see gas at $3.10 a
gallon.

It is time to be thinking
about getting in the boat
parade. This event draws
the biggest crowd of the
year.
The Christmas Boat Pa-
rade needs entries and is
hoping your club or group

It is a great time, and thril-
ling to see so many people

braries will be closed Fri-
day for a staff develop-
ment day, whatever that is.
Hope all develops well.

My wife went to Naples
to have lunch with our
granddaughters at their
elementary school. I was a
little surprised that parents
were invited to come any-
time. I guess almost every
day they have some par-
ents having lunch. Wonder
if that helps keep the cafe-
teria a little more under
control?

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Witnessed a job done well


Editor:
This past Tuesday evening at the Venice Theatre I had
the chance to see the responders to a 9-1-1 call in action.
Alady was found collapsed in a restroom. We called 9-
1-1, answered the operator's questions and within two
minutes, the medical team was at the door.
These men were attentive, polite, focused and profes-
sional in every sense of the word. The lady was persuad-
ed to be taken to the hospital and was taken away.
When I worked for wages, the watchword was, "if I do
well, tell my boss; if I do poorly, tell me." This is to tell the
supervisors that that response team did indeed "do
well."

Obama's agenda
is frightening
Editor:
In the Illinois Senate,
the "Born Alive" legislation
- to keep a baby alive if it
survived an abortion -
was blocked by Obama.
Babies were put in the
dirty laundry to die. He
made sure the legislation
never reached a vote.
His agenda includes
surrender in Iraq; retreat
in the war against radical
Islam; appeasement of
Iran, North Korea, Red
China and other danger-
ous enemies; the giveaway
of our sovereignty to the
U.N.; amnesty for illegal
aliens; wide-open borders;
higher taxes and federal
spending; draconian envi-
ronmental regulations;
unconstitutional restric-
tions on gun ownership;
and a "right" to universal
health care.
According to Dr. Dob-
son, he has mocked the
authority of scripture and
twisted the plain meaning


of the Constitution.
Obama is for the Global
Poverty Act (S. 2433),
which is a redistribution of
wealth scheme perpetrat-
ed by the U.N., costing tax-
payers $845 billion as
though money to Third-
World tyrants and dicta-

This isn't the Great Depression


DEREK DUNN-RANKIN
GUEST COLUMNIST

As disturbing as the
economic news has been
lately, those of us with
memories that go back to
the 1930s know we are not
facing anything like the
distressed dozen years of
the Great Depression.
In the early 1930s, our
family rented a 200-year-
old green frame house just
off the 9 W Highway, where


it paralleled the Palisades of
the Hudson River. Our fa-
ther, Frederic, with a teach-
ing certificate from Co-
lumbia University, could
not find any teaching jobs.
He got lucky. A newly elect-
ed Franklin Roosevelt de-
clared a bank holiday.
Frederic was employed
by one of the accounting
firms auditing the banks
that were teetering on fail-
ure. We left the large house
in Hackensack for the
small-frame rental.
It was not unusual for a
traveling hobo to stop at
our door looking for some-
thing to eat. We had little to
offer, but my mother never
turned anyone away.
She would send the visi-
tor to the well pump on the
back porch and ask him to
split a little kindling to feed
our iron kitchen stove. She

always fixed them some-
thing. As she explained it to
me, the chore was so they
could earn their lunch and
preserve their dignity. She
was generous, but also
believed in hard work.
We seemed to get all the
neighborhood traffic, which
puzzled my mother and
father. One day, she asked
that day's visitor if he knew
why we seemed to be a
hobo favorite. "I'll show
you," he said.
A few small rocks bor-
dered our front yard. Mark-
ed on the roadside of one
rockwere chalk hieroglyph-
ics. These, the traveler ex-
plained, were code that
said, "This is a good spot for
a handout but some light
work is required."
With 25 percent unem-
ployed across the nation,
there were a lot of hobos.


There was no unemploy-
ment insurance, no Social
Security, no Medicare and
no Federal Deposit Insur-
ance Corporation. Retire-
ment plans were a new
concept, home ownership
was not so widespread
and ownership of stocks
was by a small minority of
Americans. It was the loss
of trust and confidence
and the huge unemploy-
ment rolls that made life
so difficult and uncertain.
Today's economy will
force adjustments and test
us all this year, but these are
new times with cushions
and brakes that did not
exist in the 1930s. As usual,
we are likely to be well out
of it before we realize the
recession is over.

MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST



Early



sheepshead



season?

Many strange things are hap-
pening.
For instance, when I first
arrived in this area 20 years ago,
the five-week or so hot
sheepshead season was about
Feb. 1 to very early March five
weeks when the spawning
sheepies were thick and hungry.
One could always catch some
before and after those dates, but
the "hot" fishing was then.
Things have changed since
then. The "hot" fishing is now
entire month of March and even
into earlyApril. This is complete-
ly opposite of the global warm-
ing or climatic change theory. It
doesn't make sense to me. One
would think that the season
would start earlier, not later.
To bring you up to date, the
sheepshead bite increases as
they spawn and congregate in
rocky and structure areas.
Apparently this happens when
the water temperature gets
down to the low 60s in our area.
Now, here's another strange
thing. Sometimes we get a
warming trend and the water
temperature goes up five
degrees or even more. That
doesn't seem to stop them from
doing their thing.
Now I have some good news
and some bad news. First the
bad news. The last two seasons
have been way off. Prior to that,
not counting the red tide years, I
could go out on the jetty in the
peak time and catch 40-50 in
one day. I'm not exaggerating,
that's how good it was. I would
release 99 percent of them.
Now for the good news. The
past several months the sheepies
have been very visible. They're
not catching that many but they
are all over the place. The surf (at
high tide and rough water), the
Intracoastal and at the Venice
Jetties and the Venice Municipal
Pier.
Last week a diver told me that
the sheepies were stacked up on
the Gulf side of the sand bar. He
said he had to be careful walking
through them. Apparently they
were looking for sand fleas. I'm
hearing the same thing from the
other area counties.
Perhaps the last two seasons'
poor fishing was a result of the
red tide years. Another thing that
would probably help is that fish-
ermen don't keep the ridiculous
creel limit of fifteen. Particularly
the roe-laden females. Who
would want to clean fifteen
sheepies?
Well, fellow Sheepsheadites,
we'll talk again next week.

Mr Sheepshead is Dave Hack.

Wednesdays. Contact him at

Golf boys bound for state, SCOREBORD
VHS Boys Golf


Kennedy too


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

The drought is finally over for the Venice High
School boys golf team.
The Indians captured the Region 2A-5 champi-
onship Monday to advance to the state finals for
the first time in three years.
"The last two years we've finished third," Venice
head coach Marty Tarala said. "We were due."
Seasoned veterans Spencer Dunford and Tim
Garofalo led the Indians on the 7,131-yard course
at Stoneybrook Golf Club as the team posted a
combined score of 309. Dunford shot a three-over-
par 75 for fifth place and Garofalo shot a four-over-
par 76 for sixth.
Lakewood Ranch High School finished second
with a 311 after a one-hole playoff with Barron
Collier High School. The top-two teams from each
region, as well as the top-two individuals not on
those teams, advance to the state tournament Oct.
28-29 at Providence Golf & Country Club in
Davenport.
Ryan Mosely (71) of Northeast High School and
Joey Newell (74) of Manatee High School won the
at-large bids. Lakewood Ranch's Rocky Khara was
the low medalist with a two-under-par 70.
The Indians posted a few big numbers in the
tournament, but never lost their cool.
After a birdie on the par-4 first, Kyle Collison
shot a triple bogey on the par-5 third. Collison fin-
ished with a non-scoring 87. As a team, Venice shot
eight-over-par on No. 3.
Garofalo was on track for a third-place finish
and one-over-par 73 before the final hole. He was
perfect on fairways and greens in regulation until
he decided to hit driver on the 336-yard par-4 18th.
"That was a bad decision," he later admitted.
He wound up with a triple bogey but it could
have been worse after his tee shot, which he said

green Monday at Stoneybrook Golf Club. Dunford shot

was his worst of the day.
Tyler Jones, who was playing lights-out with an
even-par 36 through nine, hit a stumbling block on
the par-4 10th. He doubled par for an eight on that
hole, but finished strong with a six-over-par 78.
"I think that sometimes when you get those big
numbers, it takes you out of your game," Tarala
said. "We had those big numbers and yet we still
stayed with it."
Erick Bennett struggled on the front nine with a
41, but finished with a three-over-par 39 on the
more difficult back nine. His 80 proved just enough
to give Venice a two-stroke edge over second place.

Title defenders
Venice's Casey Kennedy will have a chance to
defend her 2007 Class 2A state title.
The Auburn University-bound golfer shot an
even-par 72 in the Region 2A-5 tournament
Monday at the Manatee County Golf Course in
Bradenton. She finished second to qualify for a
return trip to states.
Crystal Smith, who has committed to play for
the University of Illinois in 2010, did not qualify.
The defending Region 2A-5 champion finished
tied for fourth with a five-over-par 77.

VHS FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK


Mix no stranger to big games


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


It doesn't take much to get
Ethan Mix prepared for big
games.
TheVenice High School senior
linebacker eats half a watermel-
on (which he admits is a little
weird), plugs into his iPod and
he's good to go on game day. He's
so used to big games, such as the
upcoming District 5A-11 clash
between unbeaten Venice and
Charlotte high schools, he
spends the week leading up to
them getting his teammates
ready.
"I try to make sure the rest of
the team is ready too because
you can't have just one kid that's
ready," Mix said after practice
Tuesday. "I figure out what makes
everybody else pumped up and I
just encourage it, be loud about it
and it usually carries on to other
people."
Whether it's a team meeting
like the one he led after a lack-
luster practice two weeks ago or
a slap to the head like the ones
he gives offensive tackle Billy
Nagle when he isn't trying hard
enough, Mix knows how to get
the most out of his teammates.
"Maybe they won't go 100 per-
cent and I'll see it and freak out
on 'em and rough 'em up a little
bit," he said. "It just takes getting
them a little aggravated and
angry. Once you get them mad,
like some of the linemen, they
start pushing a little bit more."
Mix is comfortable in big-
game preparation because he's
been here before. In his first var-
sity game as a freshman, he was
matched up with the Pouncey
twins of Lakeland High School.
Mike and Maurice Pouncey now
account 624 pounds of the
Florida Gators offensive line.
Although that was a big game,
he said this year's matchup with
Charlotte feels more like last
season's showdown with
Manatee High School, which
Venice won 21-7. The district
championship is on the line,
both teams are undefeated and,
just like last year, Venice has yet
to be truly challenged.
"I'm more excited (than ner-
vous). The only thing that makes
me nervous is the fact that we
could throw away our season if
we lose this Friday," Mix said. "It

No. 32 Ethan Mix tossing the football during Tuesday's practice.


would still be a good season, but
we're not settling for good this
year."

Special teams work
In a big game, special teams
can make all the difference.
That's why the Indians took the
extra time provided by the bye
week to put a little more empha-
sis on the kicking game.
Every practice last week start-
ed with the field goal unit. Mike
Bishop won the holder position
from backup quarterback Joe
Iorio and Javier Aguadelo will
continue to serve as the place
kicker. Ed Delahanty will serve
on kickoff duty.
On the punt return unit, look
for senior tailback Dri Archer to
return as the return man.
Sophomore wideout Josh Boyle
has been taking punt returns to
save Archer for work on offense.
Venice head coach John Peacock
said the Indians will have "all the
bullets in the chamber" this week.

Game of the Week
Friday's 7:30 p.m. showdown


between Venice and Charlotte
has been chosen as Comcast
Sports Southeast's High School
Game of the Week. The game will
be televised live by CSS across
the Southeast to more than 5.9
million subscribers.

White-out the Tarpons
It's a little unorthodox to
schedule a white-out for a road
game, but Venice fans do travel
well.
Special white-out shirts ($10
each) will be available:
* Wednesday-Friday in the cafe-
teria during A and B lunches
* Wednesday, 4-7 p.m. in the
cafeteria before the home vol-
leyball match with Berkeley
Preparatory School.
* Thursday, 6-9 p.m. at the fresh-
man football game at Powell-
Davis Stadium.
* Friday at Charlotte High School
prior to kickoff.
Pick yours up to support the
Indians in their biggest game of
the season.

POLICE BEAT
Busted for funny money
On Oct. 18, Venice police officers
were sent to Sun Fiesta in
Centennial Park regarding a white
female attempting to pass a coun-
terfeit $20 bill at one of the food
stands.
The victim said that when the
female asked him to make change
for a $20 bill, he took a closer look at
the bill and noticed the serial num-
bers were the same as counterfeit
$20 bills passed earlier in the day.
The victim told the female the bill
was phony and she needed to stop
or she was going to get in trouble.
The female then left the booth and
was seen by another witness run
toward Nassau Street tossing a white
piece of paper. The witness gave
directions to officers, who found and
detained Janet Suzanne Berman, 35,
at the rear entrance to 309 1/2 W.
Venice Ave.
Officers then checked the area
and were able to locate three coun-
terfeit $20 bills.

Gov. Crist stumps for early voting in Sarasota


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER


Gov. Charlie Crist came to town
Monday, urging voters to take advantage
of early voting.
The rally, sponsored by the Republican
Party of Sarasota, took place at Horse
Feathers Grill & Lounge and gave Crist an
opportunity to encourage all citizens,
regardless of their political leanings, to
vote for the candidates of their choice -
particularly candidates seeking the office
of president of the United States.
"Everybody has to win in Florida in
order to win the presidency," Crist said.
"And it can start today. Early voting begins
today and that's what we're really here to
stress; to make sure everybody takes
advantage of that wonderful opportunity
to get out and vote early."
Crist said this particular election
promised to be a close one and empha-
sized the heightened significance of
everyone's vote.
Republican U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan,
also at the rally, echoed Crist's remarks
with cautionary words of his own.
"I won (in 2006) by only 369 votes,"
Buchanan said. "It's going to be a tight
race. We've got to make sure we turn out
the vote here big."
Crist asked the audience to remember
voting is a right that does not exist every-
where particularly in Cuba, a nation


only a short distance from our shores.
"There are people this evening who
will go to sleep about 90 miles south of
Key West that don't have this wonderful
privilege and opportunity," he said. "To
have a free, open, fair election to be
able to exercise that freedom really is a
privilege. And we have to make sure that
(everyone) gets out to exercise that right."
Crist said early voting is "a wonderful
thing" to have in Florida.
"It gives us the opportunity to not have
such long lines at the polling places," he
said, hastening to add he wasn't knocking
long lines.
"That's a sign of democracy in action
and that's something we should be very,
very proud of," he said.
Crist acknowledged the emergence of
recent figures indicating Democrats now
outnumber Republicans in Florida by
some 600,000.
"I saw that," he said. "That means
there's a lot more registered. But it's been
that way for quite some time. Just a cou-
ple of years ago there were about 400,000
more registered Democrats than Re-
publicans and (the Republicans still)
won."
He said voter registration is important,
but stressed it is more important for reg-
istered voters to actually get out and cast


their ballots.
Crist said
divisiveness


it's "hard to say" whether
engendered by negative

ing.


campaigning practices of both political
parties might affect the vote.
"But I think it's important (for candi-
dates) to get the message out about cut-
ting taxes, about fighting for the people,"
he said.


He then returned to his central mes-
sage.
"Everybody get out and vote," he said.
"Whoever you vote for, get out and vote.
It's real important."

HISTORY IS NO



MYSTERY TO



CITY ARCHIVIST
BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Director of Historical Resources James Hagler is the city's archivist, histori-
an and preservation expert.
That is the short list.
Following in the footsteps of his predecessor, Dorothy Korwek, Hagler is in
charge of maintaining most anything to do with preserving the history of
Venice and keeping the memories of its past for its citizens and others interested in Venice
and its people.
'Archivists save the physical reminders of the history of the community," Korwek said.
"They make judgments about what is important to the community and to remember those
who came before us." Left, Director of
Working in the Historic Triangle Inn Building, which was saved through the efforts of Historical Resources
Korwek and others, Hagler supervises the maintenance and accumulation of objects per- Historical R esources
taining to the city and its history as well as what is going on today. Items assembled city's archives at the
include everything from newspaper clippings and recent photos to donated items such Triangle Inn
as old Kentucky Military Institute cadet uniforms, circus memorabilia, high school year- Triangle Inn
books, vintage postcards and other items of a historic nature.
"The people here have proven they want to have the archives," he said, "although
there are still some who are not aware that we are here."
In addition to maintaining the city's archives and acting as the city's official receiving
agent for additions to the city collection, Hagler also helps educate citizens on the SUN PHOTOS
proper maintenance and renovation of historical buildings within the city. BY KIM COOL

Background
Hagler came to the city from Fort Myers where he was curator of the Edison/Ford
Winter Estates and the Fort Myers Historical Museum. In addition to working on
the Estates' five-year strategic plan and collaborating with the executive director on
the Estates' $3.7 million budget and other day-to-day operations, Hagler paved the
way for new publications and special exhibitions based on discoveries he made while researching
its existing collections. He said he hopes to do something similar with the Venice Archives and
Historical Collection.
"I want to see Venice become a destination for anyone coming to Florida," he said. "We've got so
much to offer. If they knew it, they would pull right off (Interstate) 75 and come 6 miles here."
As one of only three planned cities within the state of Florida, and one of few cities of its size any-
where to have four city districts listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Venice is a special
place in the eyes of its residents and many others who care about its historic preservation. Its city plan
makes it unique.
One of several ideas for developing the site as a destination is to develop a line of products associated
with the collection. One possibility would be to reprint some of the vintage postcards from the 1920s, he
said. Other product ideas are being considered.
Creating exhibits for the Inn is another one of Hagler's duties. He is equally qualified for that given
several years experience in developing exhibits that traveled to a variety of museums. He also has exten-
sive exhibit experience from his association with the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame in Titusville as well as
work with associates of the National Air and Space Museum, Johnson Space Center, the Kennedy Space
Center, Euro Disneyland and others.

a.m. to 4 p.m. in Venice at
2210 South Tamiami Trail.
To learn more, call Carroll
Leis at 492-6491.
I have a friend in Ohio

Don't panic Saturday
morning if something is
missing from Centennial
Park.
For one day only, Satur-
day, Oct. 25, the beloved

they will be made avail-
able for purchase. For the
best costume choice, be
there early on Saturday.

Volunteers
Assisting Hagler with
his duties at the archives
is a small army of dedicat-
ed volunteers.
"It is important to have
volunteers who feel as
though they are con-
tributing to the collec-
tion," he said. "I try to pair
them with their likes.
Some are more people-
sided. You can't have one
without the other."
Those volunteers who
are people-oriented are
the ones most visitors
see when they go to the
archives to see an exhib-
it or need help in
researching something
in the city's past. The
other volunteers, who
are rarely seen, spend
their time upstairs, usu-
ally wearing white cot-


ton gloves as they care-
fully document and pro-
tect the ever-growing
collection. Some spend
their time on the com-
puter, updating files.
More volunteers are
needed, and Hagler will
be glad to speak with any-
one interested in helping
to preserve the city's his-
tory. Also needed are
members of the Triangle
Inn Association.

Truth Revealed About

Anti-Aging Creams!


DEAR DONNA: I am a "Baby
Boomer" and am noticing
wrinkles around my mouth, lips
and cheeks, which are making
me look older than I am. I also
have very dark circles under my
eyes. I see so many ads with
model and actresses for "miracle"
creams. Do any really work?
Confused Boomer, Dallas, TX
DEARBOOMER: Therearetwo
products for your aging skin that
really work. EB5 Facial Cream
was invented by an Oregon
pharmacist, and extensive clinical
tests have proven that when used
twice daily, EB5 does smooth
the appearance of facial wrinkles,
especially "crows' feet" and those
"feather lips". EB5 contains the
same effective ingredients as
the more expensive creams,
anti-oxidants and hydrators,
which will make your aging
skin almost disappear. And it's
not expensive!
344680


D Ik iLI

In fact, EB5 is like having
five creams in one jar: a Wrinkle
Cream, Throat Cream, Firming
Cream, 24-Hour Moisturizer
and Make-Up Base...all in one.
And as for those puffy, dark-
circled eyes, there is EB5
Eye Treatment that effectively
relieves puffiness and reduces
the appearance of dark circles
while firming, moisturizing dry
eye areas. It's perfect for the
older woman with deep circles
or the younger woman just
beginning to notice symptoms
of aging eyes. NOTE:
EB5 Formulas are available
at JCPenney Cosmetic
Departments. To learn more,
call toll free 1 800 929 8325 or
visit online at www.eb5.com.

flower company and serves three counties. Each

are left over each week are donated to nursing
homes. Snyder's mom died recently. She spent her
last months in a nursing home and loved flowers.
Snyder believes she honors her mom with her
