McKeon wins close council race


Second-place finisher John Osmulski thinks its being
a three-way contest played a role in the outcome.


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


A hotly contested Venice City
Council race with three highly
qualified candidates is over, and
it was a nail-biter.
Kit McKeon was ahead by 870
votes as of press time with some
absentee votes uncounted, but
the celebrating going on among
friends and supporters who


gathered at the Lake Venice Golf
Club was muted.
"I'm cautiously optimistic,"
McKeon said.
The Epiphany Cathedral
precinct on the island had faulty
equipment early in the day that
left poll workers collecting, but
not processing some of the bal-
lots. They were later transported
to the county administrative
building to be hand-counted in


the presence of Supervisor of
Elections Kathy Dent, who won
re-election during Tuesday's
general election.
The precinct has almost 2,000
registered voters.
McKeon congratulated his
opponents, John Osmulski and
Emilio Carlesimo, for a hard-
fought campaign.
If the numbers hold up, Mc-
Keon said, he's ready to get to
work.
"The city has got some things

Knight elected sheriff


BY TERRY O'CONNOR
STAFF REPORT


The new sheriff in town said
he's going to make sure his
troops have better training and
better equipment than they've
been working with during his
run to office.
Republican Tom Knight of
Venice soundly defeated Demo-
crat Curt Lavarello in Tuesday's
general election by winning 65
percent of the vote, compared
with 35 percent for Lavarello.
With only absentee ballots left to
count out of 157 districts, the 45-
year-old Knight led the sheriff's
race with 117,163 votes com-
pared with 62,272 for Lavarello.
Knight's platform included
hiring deputies and emphasiz-
ing marked car patrols. He said
it is time to establish a drug task
force in North Port.
"North Port has now ex-
ceeded Sarasota in population


and drug
activity in the
area is gain-
ing," Knight
said. "In addi-
tion to wide-
spread pre-
scription drug
abuse, mari-
juana dealing Knight
and use is on
the rise."
In the past 21 months, the
SCSO has discovered about 30
marijuana grow houses in North
Port, out of about 35 county-
wide, he said.
"I would advocate the cre-
ation of a full-blown task force
and further combining re-
sources with NPPD to fight
North Port's drug problem be-
fore it worsens," he said.
Knight's nephew, Officer
Michael Mills, works for the
North Port Police Department.

Detert wins Senate race


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

State Senate District 23 Re-
publican candidate Nancy De-
tert defeated Sarasota attorney
Morgan Bentley on Tuesday.
Detert received 108,787 votes,
or 58.4 percent, to Bentley's
77,520 votes, or 41.6 percent. At
press time, not all absentee bal-
lots were counted in Sarasota
County.
Among her top priorities,
Detert, 63, promised voters she
has devised a "complex plan" to
help fix some of the foreclosure
issues in the county. She said
that as senator she is prepared
to address the economic fear
she sees in people all over the
area.
Detert said there should be a
community down-payment as-
sistance program to allow buy-
ers with good credit to receive
government funding to buy
houses in various stages of fore-


"We have a two-year
housing supply. We
would allow the work
force to live in these
houses ... The govern-
ment can then provide
a noninterest-bearing
second mortgage that
can be repaid when
the house is sold."
Nancy Detert

closure.
"We have a two-year housing
supply," she said. "We would
allow the work force to live in


these houses
and pay what
they can on a
first mortgage. ^
The govern-
ment can then
provide a non-
interest-bear-
ing second
mortgage that Detert
can be repaid
when the house is sold."


Starting over
Detert said insurance com-
panies are looking for excuses to
drop customers.
"I think we have to start all
over again," she said.
In an e-mail, Detert said she
will work for "a clean, safe, envi-
ronment, good jobs, an educa-
tion system that benefits their
children and the community at
large."
"Those are the things that I
have fought for in Tallahassee,"
she said. "As your state senator,
it's my job to explain your needs
to government and not the
other way around."
A 30-year Venice resident,
Detert is a mortgage broker. Her
sons Mark, Bryan and Jamie
graduated fromVenice High and
still live locally.
Last week Detert reported
several threatening e-mails
against her and her family to the
Sarasota County Sheriff's Office.
She was advised to keep a low
profile the last few days before
the election.
Detert served for eight years
on the Sarasota County School
Board and was then elected to
four terms in the Florida House
of Representatives. She lost in
the 2006 primaries to Rep. Vern
Buchanan for the District 13
Congressional Seat.

Three generations in one family voted for Barack Obama for president in Tuesday's election: Chelsea Bolyard,
center, who turned 18 that day and got to vote for the first time; Dorothy DeMyer, left, her grandmother; and Kim
Bolyard, her mother.


Newly 18 and hyped about voting


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR


A bouquet of 18 red roses
surrounded by colorfully wrap-
ped presents paid tribute to the
young woman celebrating her
birthday on Nov. 4.
Chelsea Bolyard turned 18
on Election Day and voted in
her first presidential election.
Strange as it may seem to those
who think young people don't
care about politics and voting,
the roses and the gifts weren't
Chelsea's main focus on this
milestone birthday.
"I think she is more excited
about voting than she is about
turning 18," Kim Bolyard said of
her daughter.
Politics in general and voting


in particular have always been a
passion of Chelsea's.
"In 2000, I was only 10 years
old, but I was interested then,
too," she said.
Chelsea, aVenice High School
senior, attributes her enthusiasm
to her American Government
teacher.
"Mrs. Barbara Farrar really
gets you into it," she said. "She
had us out at the ball games
signing up kids to vote who
were turning 18 as part of our
volunteer hours."
Chelsea said most of the
political discussions she's been
involved in have taken place at
school and a few at the K2
Scrapbook Studio in Sarasota
where she and her mother work.
Her dad, Gary, chooses not to


vote, but Kim and Chelsea en-
gage in the occasional political
discussion at home.
"She was just after me be-
cause she said I had to know the
reasons why I was voting for
Obama," Kim said. "She made
up her mind first to vote for
Obama, but I was leaning that
way anyway."
No doubt
Chelsea had no doubts about
casting her vote for Obama.
"He has the charisma of John
Kennedy, he grew up in hard
times and he offers better
opportunities for the middle
class," she said. "And it's time for
change. I like George Bush as a

Mining rezone delayed


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

More than 100 residents
showed up Monday morning at
Venice City Hall to hear a rezon-
ing application for mining oper-
ations in North Venice. They left
dissatisfied an hour later after
council granted a continuance.
The rezoning of hundreds of
acres that contain four separate
mining operations north of the
Venetian Golf & River Club was
delayed after Council Member
Vicki Noren was unable to make
the meeting due to other busi-
ness. Noren is the only council
member who is employed full-

Council


Member John Sim-


monds spoke up early saying he
didn't feel well and wasn't sure
he could make it through the
day-long quasi-judicial hearing.
As Mayor Ed Martin queried
council about how to proceed,


outgoing Council Member Rick
Tacy said he, too, was feeling
under the weather.
In the event Simmonds and
Tacy left the proceedings, only

Buchanan retains District 13 seat


Dent still supervisor of elections


The first-term Republican congressman
defended his seat against Christine Jennings.


BY NEIL HUGHES
STAFF WRITER


District 13 Rep. Vern
Buchanan made it two-for-
two against Democratic
challenger Christine Jen-
nings Tuesday.
The rematch from 2006
proved a bit more decisive
this time around, with
Buchanan edging Jennings
55.6 percent, or 142,100
votes, to 37.7 percent, or
96,357 votes, as of late
Tuesday. Two years ago,
Buchanan's margin of vic-
tory was just 373 votes.
"It might be one of the
biggest increases, espe-
cially for a Republican,"
Buchanan said, "and I'm
humbled by that."
Buchanan also fended
off two candidates with
no party affiliation: attor-
ney Jan Schneider, who
captured 5.3 percent, or
13,616 votes, and Don
Baldauf, coming in with
1.4 percent, or 3,636
votes.
When all of Tuesday's
votes are counted,
Buchanan could be one of
a select number of
Republicans who retained
their seat. The first-term
representative was viewed
as vulnerable due to the
closeness of his 2006 race.
"We're just very hum-
bled tonight," Buchanan
said.


In both of
their com-
petitions,
S controversy
surround-
ed the
District 13
race. This
year, allega-
Buchanan tions of
question-
able business deals and
campaign contributions
- and accompanying
lawsuits hit Buchanan.
He returned fire by sug-
gesting that the Jennings
campaign was behind the
lawsuits, which they have
denied.
Despite the conflicts,
voters strongly supported
Buchanan. The congress-
man said he believes it's
because his campaign
talked about what the vot-
ers wanted to hear.
"I think the difference
with us is we've really
focused on issues," he said.


In his time in Congress,
Buchanan, 57, has been an
advocate for veterans'
issues and transportation
matters. He believes the
widening of U.S. 17 from
Punta Gorda all the way to
Hardee County must be a
priority. He's also spoken
of the need for a balanced
federal budget.
Going into what
appears to be a Democrat-
controlled government,
Buchanan will have his
work cut out for him. But
the Republican said he
believes his bipartisan
record that he's already
garnered in two years in
office is evidence that he
will be able to reach across
the aisle in Washington.
He cited his work with
Rep. Cathy Castor, a
Democrat from Tampa, on
obtaining $90 million for
red tide.
"We're all Americans,"
Buchanan said. "We've got
to do what's right."

Republican Kathy Dent
handily defeated Democrat
Barry Sullivan and Levko
Klos, who has no party
affiliation, to retain her
title Tuesday as Sarasota
County Supervisor of
Elections.
With 156 precincts
reporting, Dent received
115,634 votes, or 63 per-
cent. Only absentee ballots
are yet to be fully counted.
Sullivan received 63,235
votes, or 34.5 percent,
while Klos got 4,456 votes,
or 2.45 percent.
"I was as passionate
about this job today as I
was when I first took office,"
Dent said. "I'm very happy.
And I'll be even happier
when I get home and get to
bed."
Dent, 58, was elected
supervisor of elections in
2000 and was re-elected
unopposed in 2004.
Dent said her experi-
ence best qualifies her to
continue in her post.


"I've con-
ducted 64
successful
elections,"
she said. "I
have the
experience
and I didn't
want to turn
Dent it over to a
novice."
Glitches
Election night did not go
off without a hitch. Dent
said six scanners county-
wide were not operating
properly and taken out of
service. Four ballot boxes


required replacement and
two auto marks voting
apparatus for the visually
impaired- did not work. In
two precincts, Payne Parkin
Sarasota and Epiphany
Cathedral in Venice, auxil-
iary bins filled before scan-
ners could be replaced. This
forced many uncounted
ballots into a transport bag
to be counted in Sarasota.
Klos said Dent's office
should still be highly scruti-
nized for the next two years.
"That way, the actual
transparency that is claimed
is actually coming out," Klos
said.


Corrections
In the Oct. 19 edition, Dr. Cristina Babiak's first
name was misspelled.
In the Nov. 2 edition, a story about the Sunshine
lawsuit against the city of Venice and several coun-
cil members used the word "conspiracy" to
describe certain activities by people alleged to have
been "liaisons" between council members and
attributed the word to attorney Andrea Mogensen.
Actually, Mogensen herself made no comment on
the activities.
The Gondolier Sun regrets the errors.

WE'RE IN BUSINESS TOGETHER


Everything You'll Ever Need Is Right Here Within Our County


It's important as Venice residents that we support the small businesses that
make up our Chamber of Commerce. As we each depend on one another,
sometimes the best way to grow a business is to build a strong base at home.
When you use vendors that employ local people, you not only support them,
you support yourself. The Venice Area Chamber of Commerce has always
supported doing business with a Chamber member and this campaign fur-
thers supports buying local first.

If you believe in "buying local," take these steps:

Evaluate where your company purchases supplies or services.
Do your suppliers employ local people? If not, consider finding local
businesses to partner with by visiting ww.sarasotacountyone.com to view the
EDC Investor Directory, chambers of commerce directories,
Manufacturing Capabilities Index and more!

Encourage your employees and business partners to "buy local."

Send an e-mail to your employees!
Sample e-mail or letter: "You may have heard about a new campaign called
"Sarasota County One." Spearheaded by the Economic Development Cor-
poration of Sarasota County, this effort urges Sarasota County business
owners to use vendors and service providers who employ local people.

The point is that when Sarasota County businesses support other Sarasota
County businesses, we help build a stronger economy and stronger commu-
nity for all. The campaign also urges local government to patronize Sarasota
County vendors and service providers, as well, spending our tax money
here at home.

We're going to do our part to live up to the campaign's goals, and we urge you
to do the same in your own daily lives. So while you may do your research
on a Web portal, consider entering a local shop's door. If you migrated to
Sarasota County but kept your service providers "up north," see what our
businesses here have to offer. "And so on.

Request Sarasota County One posters and materials to display
around your business or distribute to employees and business part-
ners. Place the Sarasota County One logo and link on your website.

Consider adding the Sarasota County One signatures to your emails.

Mason elected to county commission Ford-Coates re-elected tax collector


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Republican Carolyn
Mason defeated Democrat
Jono Miller and John
Mullarkey, who has no
party affiliation, and will
succeed Paul Mercier as
Sarasota County commis-
sioner for District 1.
With 156 of 157
precincts reporting
Tuesday night, Mason
received 87,927 votes, or
50.5 percent of all votes
cast. Miller received 74,449
votes, or 42.75 percent,
while Mullarkey got 11,764
votes, or 6.75 percent.
Absentee votes were not
counted at press time.
"Good job," Mason
said, upon learning of her
victory. "Now I have to see
where the county com-


mission is and catch up.
I've had a wonderful sup-
port team
and (I'm
thankful to)
all the
county res-
idents that
have put
their faith
in me, to
vote for me.
Mason I think my
experience
on the (Sarasota) city com-
mission has been invalu-
able and I'm looking for-
ward to working with and
being a part of such a
cohesive group as the
county commission."
Mason, 57, was born in
Sarasota. Elected to the
Sarasota City Commission
in 1999, Mason also served
as mayor in 2001 and 2002.


She now works for Habitat
for Humanity as director
of recruitment and with
the Salvation Army as an
intake specialist. A widow,
Mason has three children
and 13 grandchildren.
Throughout her cam-
paign, Mason said her
experience in govern-
ment made her the best
candidate for county
commissioner of Sarasota
County's northernmost
district.
"My No. 1 priority as
county commissioner will
be to assure that citizens
and communities in South
County have access to the
same opportunities and
services that are available
to those in North County,"
she said.

Incumbent Barbara
Ford-Coates defeated
Donna Clarke in her bid to
be re-elected to a seventh
term as Sarasota County
tax collector.
Ford-Coates collected
121,724 votes, or 67 per-
cent, to Clarke's 59,231
votes, or 33 percent, of all
votes. Some absentee bal-
lots have yet to be tallied.
Ford-Coates, 60, a
Democrat who has been
tax collector since 1984,
sought re-election
because there are still
many challenges she'd like


to meet.
She awaited election
results at Marina Jack's in
Sarasota with family,
friends and other
Democratic candidates.
She credited her "incredi-
ble" staff and 400 cam-
paign volunteers in help-
ing her win.
'And of course my fam-
ily was as supportive as
they always are," she said,
talking over background
noise. "I'm here celebrat-
ing with people from my
office, my daughters, sev-
eral kids from my Girl
Scout troop, my husband
and a lot of Democrats."
Clarke, 62, is an adjunct
mathematics professor at


Manatee Community
College. She spent election
night at the George Mullen
Community Center in
North Port.
In 1988
and 1992,
Ford-
Coates was
re-elected
with the
S highest
S vote count
of any
Ford-Coates candidate
on the
county ballot. She was
re-elected in 1996, 2000
and 2004 without oppo-
sition.

Holder wins in a landslide


Tebrugge is new public defender


BY TERRY O'CONNOR
STAFF WRITER

The unofficial new pub-
lic defender of the 12th
Judicial Circuit, which
encompasses Sarasota,
Manatee and DeSoto coun-
ties, is Adam Tebrugge, a
man who campaigned on
his extensive experience
handling death penalty
cases.
Tebrugge, the 46-year-
old Democratic candidate,
nipped 51-year-old Repub-
lican Larry Eger, 115,121
votes to 114,044 Tuesday by
winning 50.2 percent of the
vote.
Tebrugge isn't counting
on a win as of 10:45 p.m.
"I think there's still
some votes out there to be
counted," Tebrugge said.


"I'll let the supervisor of
elections
do her job.
I'd like to
congratu-
l late Larry
on a race
well run, no
matter how
it turns
out."
Tebrugge Tebrugge
has the
edge because of a nearly
5,000-vote bulge in
Sarasota. He was out-
polled by nearly 4,600 in
Manatee but took DeSoto
by about 900 votes.
Unofficial results late
Tuesday were, in Sarasota,
Tebrugge, 70,855, Eger,
65,913; Manatee, 39,135
for Tebrugge and 43,903
for Eger; and in DeSoto,


5,131 for Tebrugge and
4,228 for Eger.
Tebrugge celebrated at
Marina Jacks in Sarasota
before quickly heading
home to relax.
Tebrugge said North
Port was extremely impor-
tant to his campaign. He
said North Port's lack of
infrastructure, social ser-
vice programs, and a
courtroom for major cases
are all needs that must be
addressed in the county's
most populous city.
Tebrugge plans to
improve attorney training,
hire more Spanish-speak-
ing attorneys and staff,
expedite representation of
jailed clients and reduce
recidivism.

Republican Doug
Holder led Tuesday night
to retain his Florida
District 70 representative
seat by defeating
Democrat challenger
Sam Rosenfeld.
According to Sarasota
County Supervisor of
Elections Tuesday evening,
with 99.2 percent of the
ballots counted, Holder
garnered 46,774, or 61 per-
cent of the ballots cast,
while Rosenfeld had
29,550 votes, or 39 percent.
Two years after moving
to Osprey, Holder, 41, suc-
cessfully ran as the Florida
District 70 representative.


"We are
certainly
very fortu-
nate and
very appre-
ciative,"
Holder said
Tuesday
evening.
Holder "Overall, I
think it's
been the communication.
We've been very connect-
ed with the people in
District 70."
Florida House District
70 stretches south from
Siesta Key in Sarasota to
north Englewood.
Holder, a real estate
broker, cited his legislative
role serving on
Conservation & State


Lands, Health Quality,
Homeland Security &
Public Safety committees.
He also has a seat on the
House Economic Expan-
sion & Infrastructure
Council, and he received
"A" ratings from the Florida
Chamber of Commerce in
2007 and 2008.
The 57-year-old Rosen-
feld, a retired dentist from
Pennsylvania, is a Venice
resident. It was his first
stab at running for an
elected office.
When asked if he con-
sider running again,
Rosenfeld said, "To be per-
fectly honest, it is too early
to make a decision."

have been available to vote
on the critical conditions
residents are seeking to
lessen the impact of mining
operations.
Apparently the numbers
weren't appealing to land-
use attorney Jeff Russell of
Abel Band, representing the
mining interests. He re-
quested a continuation of
the proceedings until all
council members are avail-
able.
"This may destroy my
client's business," said
Russell. "I know we cannot
guarantee a future comple-
ment at a future date" but
voting with "only four
members is just unaccept-
able given the stakes here."
City Attorney Bob An-
derson said it was council's


decision, but past practice
was to grant the continu-
ance when requested.
Concerned with litiga-
tion, Martin pushed for the
continuance.
Simmonds spoke
against the continuance,
saying council owed it to
residents who showed up
Monday to complete its
business.
"Do the job right now.
That's why you were elect-
ed," shouted an audience
member.
"Please don't do that,"
Martin pleaded. "It would
deteriorate the civility" of
the proceedings.
Lang and Simmonds
voted against delaying the
hearing. Voting "yea" were
Martin, Moore, Tacy, and


Zavodnyik.

Conditions
Moving Cemex's con-
crete operations from
behind the Historic Train
Depot to join other mining
operations on 300 acres in
the northeastern part of the
city has been in the works
for a decade.
Mining began in the area
back in 1969 under a spe-
cial exception granted by
the county allowing an
asphalt plant and other
mining operations oper-
ations that recently helped
rebuild U.S. 41 Venice
Bypass.
But when WCI built
Venetian Golf & River Club
in 2004 it wasn't long after
that complaints surfaced
over blinding overnight
lights, dust and smell.


The original annexation
was controversial. The next
step is to rezoning the
property from county
"OUE-1" (open use estate
1) to the city's "planned
industrial development."
The rezoning passed on
first reading by a vote of 5-1
in April, with Zavodnyik
voting against it.
Tacy joined the meeting
late and under city rules
was excluded from the final
vote. Council agreed at the
time to deal with the condi-
tions on second reading.
The homeowners asso-
ciation, led by retired attor-
ney Marshall Happer, hired
Sarasota attorney Dan
Lobek to make its case
before council.
VGRC is seeking to limit
the companies' hours of
operation, add visual


buffers and other condi-
tions.
Those conditions were
the subject of Monday's


special hearing.

person, but I don't like him
as a president."
Kim's mother, Dorothy
DeMyer, remembers voting
for John Kennedy in 1960. It
was the first time she voted.
She met her granddaughter
Chelsea and her daughter
at the polls so three genera-
tions could cast their votes
together. DeMyer was vot-
ing for Obama as well.
"I think it's great that
Chelsea is voting," DeMyer
said, "and that she is voting
for Obama."
Chelsea plans to attend
Arizona State University


and major in journalism.
She wants to be in either
broadcast journalism or
photojournalism.
In the meantime, she'll
be looking ahead to that
next milestone birthday -
21 when she plans to
take a trip to Vegas to play
21. Her dad may not ac-
company her to the polls,
but he will be her escort to
Vegas.
"It's a dad thing," she
said.

River Road gets


floodplain land


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

River Road's "much-
needed" redevelopment
received a shot in the arm
Tuesday from the Florida
Department of Trans-
portation.
The Sarasota County
Commission unanimously
endorsed FDOT's acquisi-
tion of 28 acres near the
River Road-Venice Avenue
intersection.
The plan is to accom-
modate floodplain mitiga-
tion for the anticipated
roadway-raising in the pri-
mary segment of the pro-
posed Englewood
Interstate Connector, a 4-
mile section of River Road
between Interstate 75 and
U.S. 41.
The 28-acre floodplain
mitigation site in the
southeast quadrant of the
River Road-Venice Avenue
intersection will be ob-
tained by FDOT from B&B
Holdings, according to
James Harriott, executive
director of public works.
Harriott did not know how
much FDOT would pay for
the land.
"But we did present that
parcel to the board about a
year ago, when it was
going for about $2.8 mil-
lion," Harriott said. "And
the board turned it down.
Property values have
dropped since then, so
that changes the picture a



Sarasota

County OKs

study for tree

protection

BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Tree huggers, take note.
The Sarasota County
Commission directed staff
Wednesday to explore
options to create a new
protection category for
trees, particularly the
Majestics, or so-called
Baby Grands large,
mature native trees that
have not yet qualified as
protected Grand trees.
According to Matt
Osterhoudt, resource pro-
tection manager, although
standards in other coun-
ties create opportunities to
provide open areas and
landscaping which ben-
efit the trees they do not
address tree protection
where development is pro-
posed or constrained to
small land parcels.
"This (effort) will create
a future arsenal of Grand
trees," Osterhoudt said.
"So at this point, we have
been working with the
Sarasota Tree Advisory
Council ... and we'll ulti-
mately bring ideas to the
community for their con-
sideration and then go
back to the board with
some kind of a draft."
Osterhoudt said that a
public workshop will take
place at some point to gar-
ner input toward the cre-
ation of the tree protection
policy.
"We want developers,
we want tree experts- we
want to bring all those
people together and talk
with each one of them,"
Osterhoudt said.
He said a proposed tree
protection category policy
for the Baby Grands would
come back before the
county commission no
later than the spring.
"That will give us
enough time to work out
some details, create the
workshops, have them and
see where they go," he
said.

bit."
River Road extends for
some 12 miles from 1-75 all
the way to Englewood. The
four-phase restoration
project to both raise
and widen the road has
been estimated to cost
anywhere from $130 mil-
lion to $150 million.
County Commission
Chair Shannon Staub was
heartened by the land
acquisition, which she said
will provide much-needed
space for stormwater
ponds to offset improve-
ments to the intersection.
"It's one more step
toward making River Road
happen," Staub said. "You
have to have more storm-
water ponds because
you're adding asphalt. So
this was a nice piece of
land to get."

we need to do quickly, like passing
the comprehensive plan and getting
an airport consultant on board," he
said. "Once that is done, a lot of
these contentious issues will go
away, and that's where we need to
get to."
McKeon, along with Council
Member John Moore, who ran
unopposed, will be sworn in at a
special meeting Nov. 12 at city hall if
the numbers don't change.
McKeon won with 4,2090 votes
(41.6 percent) over Osmulski's 3,399
(33.6 percent) and Carlesimo's 2,504
(24.7 percent) at press time.
He will replace outgoing Council
Member Rick Tacy for seat No. 2.
Tacy decided not to seek re-election
because under city term limits he
could only serve one more year.
The money factor
In last year's election money mat-
tered little in the end. Incumbents
raised twice as much as their chal-
lengers in the 2007 election, but lost
by twice as many votes to three new
slow-growth candidates.
McKeon's contributions in this
election far exceeded his rivals. He
outspent Osmulski by more than 5
to 1, and Carlesimo by 3 to 1.
McKeon raised $22,229, using
$13,000 of his own funds. Osmulski

raised only $4,600, putting only
$1,500 of his own funds into the kitty.
Carlesimo raised contributions in
the amount of $7,500, mostly from
firefighter associations in the area
and throughout the state.
Spoiler
Throughout the campaign Car-
lesimo's candidacy was generally
considered somewhat of a spoiler -
but for whom? At first pundits
thought the political newcomer's
candidacy might favor Osmulski.
As the campaign progressed,
however, it became clear Carlesimo
and Osmulski had similar positions,
potentially splitting votes.
"We did the best we could," said
Osmulski. "The city is going to get
what it asked for.
"I ran a clean campaign. I am
proud of what I did. Unfortunately it
was a three-man race. Someone
stole from somebody, and it proba-
bly was from me."
Carlesimo was unavailable for
comment, but did leave a message
with the Gondolier Sun that he
called McKeon at his home to con-
gratulate him.
Gremlins
The sign gremlins that mysteri-
ously uprooted Obama and McCain
signs in Venice and throughout the
region leading up to the election -


to the point where they were hard to
find on Election Day- were more
forgiving of council members. Only
a few of their signs went missing,
they reported, and few were vandal-
ized.
While McKeon spent the evening
at the Lake Venice Golf Club with
supporters taking in the election

Safeguarding loved ones



from undue influence s


C. KELLY CORBRIDGE
GUEST COLUMNIST


The basic estate-plan-
ning documents attorneys
typically prepare for their
clients allow for personal
and financial care in the
event of incapacity.
The power of attorney
allows someone to "stand
in your shoes" to deal with
personal issues, including
bill paying, the Internal
Revenue Service, Medi-
care, insurance compa-
nies, banks, etc.
The health-care surro-
gate document allows
someone to make medical
decisions for you in the
event you cannot make
those decisions yourself.
If you have a trust, the
trust agreement provides
for a successor trustee to
make distributions, in-
vestment decisions and to
provide general financial
management.
Unfortunately, there are
circumstances when cli-
ents' original incapacity
protection plans may be
circumvented by oppor-
tunistic "friends," neigh-
bors, caregivers or even
family members. These
are circumstances where


Big


the client may not be "in-
competent," but may in-
stead be making poor de-
cisions due to physical or
mental deterioration. These
circumstances are extreme-
ly challenging to both the
client's family and to the
professionals (including
attorneys, accountants and
financial advisors) who rep-
resent the client.
The "almost competent
client" in these circum-
stances may operate un-
der mistakes of facts (i.e. a
child has somehow upset
him or her and should
now be cut out of the
estate plan), or may per-
haps become susceptible
to undue influence (i.e.
dependent upon a care-
giver and becomes con-
cerned that if the client
doesn't leave his or her
estate assets to the care-
giver, the caregiver will
leave him or her all alone).
In other words, the client
might make decisions that
he or she never would
have made in his or her
"right mind."
In some cases, the
actions of the "undue in-
fluencers" may be undone
after death usually
through lengthy and costly
court battles. In other
cases, the person taking
advantage of the client
may do significant finan-
cial damage during life-
time (i.e. through gifts,
joint ownership arrange-
ments and even fraud). In
either event, the damage
may be substantial and
may be extremely difficult
and costly to undo.


What can be done to
prevent these types of
abuses from occurring or
minimize their likelihood?
Probably the best advice is
to have trusted family
members or friends in
place to provide some type
of oversight protection.
This should probably in-
clude frequent communi-
cations and periodic visits
by family members.
It may also be beneficial
to provide for a second set
of eyes to monitor finan-
cial transactions possi-
bly in addition to the per-
son being granted power
of attorney or trustee
authority. The oversight
could be from a family
member receiving copies
of checking account and
investment account state-
ments, or it could involve
the use of a professional
fiduciary (i.e. a bank or
trust company) to monitor
cash outflows.
There may even be cer-
tain restrictions that could
be built into the client's
estate plan (i.e. limitations
on the ability to modify a
trust) that could provide
additional safeguards.
If you are concerned
that you or a loved one
may be especially suscep-
tible to undue influence or
being taken advantage of,
you should consult your
estate planning attorney
to see what additional pro-
tections may be available
to you.

Construction is set to begin for the $8 million phase 1 of the 40,000-square-foot clubhouse at
Gran Paradiso Resort.


Work begins on Gran Paradiso clubhouse


BY TERRY O'CONNOR
STAFF WRITER

Another day in paradise means anoth-
er Tuscan-styled clubhouse resort is on
the way.
Earth moved Oct. 28 with a ground-
breaking ceremony at the $8-million
phase 1 of the 40,000-square-foot club-
house at Gran Paradiso Resort.
The economic downturn hasn't damp-
ened Gran Paradiso's plans, spokesman
Michael Van Beck said.
"The fact we're starting now and at the
trough, I think we're positioned to come
up out of this thing," Van Beck said. "The
timing is perfect."
The first four families moved this sum-
mer into the Gran Paradiso community
developed by Sam Rodgers Homes and
Neighborhoods. Phase 1 contains 408
homes. Homes range from 1,526 square
feet to more than 4,500 square feet for the
largest of the four estate homes now
under construction.
Phase II will include a ballroom, bar
and grill, catering kitchen and more game
rooms. No cost estimates are available
yet.
The clubhouse project includes a spa
with aerobics center, saunas, steam, mas-
sage and treatment rooms. It will also
include a library, media center, games
and crafts room with kiln, reception area,
boardroom, porte-cochere entry and
adjoining loggias.
Outdoor amenities include a 7,000-
square-foot resort lagoon pool with
reflection ponds and fountain, hot tub, a
Tuscan cabana with grilling area, court-
yard gardens with brick paver walkways,
tennis pavilion with eight lighted clay
tennis courts, a stadium champion's
court and a junior Olympic heated lap

The 1,068-acre Gran Paradiso project
at The West Villages on U.S. 41 is 3 miles
south of Jacaranda Boulevard in Venice. It
is part of the Thomas Ranch, a 15,000-
acre tract south of Sarasota.
The Gran Paradiso tract was known as
Taylor Ranch for decades until Stan
Thomas of Fourth Quarter Properties
bought it in 2001-02. When completed in
an estimated 10 years, Gran Paradiso will
provide a housing mix, including estate
and other single-family homes, paired-
villas and multifamily residences, all built
Tuscan-style.
Nine single-family and two paired-
villa models are open with prices starting
at $250,000.

and Native-American.
There is so much that differentiates
us in the simmering stew of this society
and one guiding principle that binds us:
One nation, indivisible.
Easier said.
Especially today, following a long,
passionate, divisive political campaign,
both on the national and local level.
The seemingly endless campaign
season has seen a healthy exchange of
ideas, but also the disturbing continua-
tion of wedge politics and tactics that
exaggerate, distort and trash an oppo-
nent's character and motives.
Look no further than this year's
Florida Senate District 23 race to see
how fetid the politics of personal
destruction can be. We had two decent,
articulate, moderate candidates whose
mailings and TV ads descended into the


poison of televised smear propelled,
supposedly, by the aggressiveness of
state party hacks. Two decent citizens
hoping for public service, but refusing
to forswear the tainted tactics of their
fellow travelers.
We've come to expect such methods
on the national level, and this year's
campaign deviated little from what has
become the norm.
So much of our politics is built on
half-truths, distortion, lies.
No wonder we have become a nation
of cynics. No wonder we've become
angry and distrustful of our political
process. No wonder we find it so hard to
differentiate between a healthy, respect-
ful disagreement among competing
visions and a politics that transforms
opponents into monsters.
If nothing else, yesterday's election


was about "change."
It's certainly time to change the
process, if not the result.
We have plenty that divides us and
one overriding belief, that there is a
mystifying, inherent wisdom in this
democratic system we've devised over
the past 200-plus years. It's far from
flawless, but we somehow get it right,
more often then not. We believe this.
Will the flaws in the mechanics of the
voting process again undermine this
belief? Will the win-at-all-costs style of
politics further erode the credibility of
the electoral process? We can only hope
not.
In the end, we are a large, blemished,
diverse society struggling to make this a
better world for ourselves and our
neighbors.
One nation, as always.


Ideas for the


BOB VEDDER
PUBLISHER


At a recent meeting fea-
turing speakers on the
health of business in the
state and our county, a few
interesting ideas came
forth.
One theme from state
representatives or those
running against them was
that there will be no
money for new projects
this year. This is the year to
find new revenue sources
and fix things that might
not be controversial, but
could make a difference.
John Ryan, head of the
Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce, brought up
one such idea. He finds
that people buying small
businesses in this state
have difficulty getting a
group health plan. Up
North they were able to go
to their chamber to get
health insurance provided
as a group to allow for
economies of scale. John
said that cannot currently
be done but should be. He
feels that this would be a
great shot in the arm for
small businesses. As with
many good ideas, we may
find that lobbyists for
health insurance compa-
nies don't want the prob-
lems caused by this kind of
arrangement.
Another idea would be
to put this state in with the
22 others in an Internet
consortium that brings in
some Internet sales tax
revenue. It really should be
a national law, but Con-
gress bows to pressure of
the big Internet compa-
nies.
A third idea would be to
take us from having the
second-lowest tax on ciga-
rettes to the middle of the
group. Add $1 a pack and
that will help curb smok-
ing and bring in a lot of
revenue.
The head of the Florida
Chamber, Brad Swanson,
said he expects a special
session to be called after
elections to cut more bil-
lions from the budget.
Obviously you would not
do that during elections.
******

By's Crack: For you
gardeners, the hot item
this year is Bush Re-
covery tulip bulbs.
They arrive late, grow
slow and put a big
deficit in your budget.

Legislature

When we were inter-
viewing candidates for
office it was interesting to
find that the most com-
mon state to be from was
Pennsylvania. The Pitts-
burgh area was the most
popular. The most com-
mon age was 57, with the
preponderance of candi-
dates between 56 and 61.

The girls volleyball
team won big in the dis-
trict final, so they now will
play their first regional
game at home. It is tonight
(Wednesday) at 7 p.m. at
the Teepee at Venice High
School.

Boy, are we all happy the
elections are over. There has
to be a better way.
The negative cam-
paigning award for this
election goes to Nancy
Detert, who had a won-
derful TV commercial up
front about how she wasn't
going to run a negative
campaign. Some of the
negative ads for her are
from groups supporting
her without her approval
of the ads. They should
have to be cleared by the
candidate so that we know
they in fact did approve of
them. That would end a lot
of the negative campaign-
ing.
Also, the state house
race got negative at the
end, which was not a big
surprise.
Let's hope the signs will
all be gone by the end of
the weekend.
******
It is nice to see that once
the driver license office
closed it did not take tax
collector Barbara Ford-
Coates long to set it up at
the South County Admin-
istration building. The
only difference is there is
no road test there yet.
******
It is good that the bid-
ding for the Red Sox is over.
It looks like the team used
Sarasota County to get
what it wanted in Lee
County. It certainly did not
offer anything publicly to
us. With that in mind, I'm
not too upset we didn't get
the team.
It is not unusual for
owners of teams making a
lot of money to use emo-
tions to get tens of millions
of dollars with little com-
mitment on their part.
It would be so good to
save a penny of tourist tax
revenue for the time we
want to do a conference
center, which might actu-
ally attract people year-
round as opposed to for
one or two months of
spring training. Hopefully,
we can get the Orioles or
another team with the $60
million that has been iden-
tified.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Time for another pier review


Editor:
The Venice Fishing Pier used to be a safe place to go
when we had security by the night watchman or regular
patrols by our local police.
This not a good place to be on any given late weekend
night or when school is not in session. Now it is a drop-
off for kids by their parents. Beer-consuming kids smoke
at the "T" head at night from age 13 up. Something needs
to be done before something bad happens.
Mike Cavallo and I went before the parks board a
while back and suggested a watch group, but that must
have fallen on deaf ears.
Stealing, smoking, drinking, swearing and being just
plain rude to our visiting tourists out watching the sun-
set is not a message we wish to send.

Gary Anderson
North Port


We've seen this
movie before
Editor:
Senior citizens are good
targets for con artists. The
latest example is that
many seniors are falling
prey to the new scam
cooked up by the insur-
ance companies known as
Medicare Advantage-HMO
plans. This is how the scam
works:
The bait an initial
package of low-cost-in-
network health benefits.
Seniors may even get
some money back. Insur-
ance company stooges cry
out with the red flags of
socialized medicine, tax
increases and government
control of health care to
cover their tracks, divert
attention and scare you.
The hook Medicare
tax dollars are diverted to
the insurance companies
at the expense of private
doctors who will accept
traditional Medicare pa-
tients. The private doctors
are forced out of the sys-
tem, leaving seniors no
choices except the HMO


plans.
The sting when the
insurance companies
have reached their target
market share and the pri-
vate doctors are out, then
the insurance companies
begin squeezing benefits,
raising premiums, reduc-
ing drug plans, restricting
access and rationing your
health care.
*The aftermath- insur-
ance company executives
and shareholders are danc-
ing in the board room,
smoking Havanas and pop-
ping the corks with their
massive tax-dollar profits.
Senior citizens are left fight-
ing with the claims adjuster
to access their Third-
World-quality health care.
Senior citizens know
the players that support
the insurance companies.

LET 'EM HAVE IT: WERE THIS YEARS POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS MORE OR LESS DIRTY THAN IN
THE PAST, OR ABOUT THE SAME? CALL US AT 207-1111.

Where are we supposed to boogie down?


Floored. Just like the Shark's Tooth Festival, the Sun
Fiesta had some great live music, but there was no place
to dance. We came downtown ready to shake a leg, but
doing the cha-cha or swing or salsa on asphalt is like try-
ing to swim in mud. If you want to liven up the Venice
festival scene, provide a portable dance floor, publicize it


and the dancers will come.

Clarifications. I'm call-
ing about the recent col-
umn by Howard Bearse,
who is the chief of the No-
komis Volunteer Fire De-
partment. I am born and
raised in this area, not too
far from the volunteer fire
department. There were
two slightly misleading
statements in his column.
One stated that they had
two stations, one they share
with the county actually
the county owns it. The sec-
ond misleading statement
had to do with the fact that
they get no tax revenues
from the county as the
county residents do not pay
for fire taxes. While that's
essentially true, he didn't
state that the fire depart-
ment does get money from
the county to respond to
EMS calls, so they do get
paid for responding, con-
trary to his column.
Insane. I'm responding
to my call, which you titled,
"Boy that's some lunch
wagon." I still want to repeat
that it makes no sense to
send out a big fire truckwith
two employees to Publix to
get lunch or get some mate-
rials for their lunch. If they
need something they can
have someone bring it in or
they could do without, or
they could send someone in
in their own automobile.
And if there is a fire, they can
scoot back to the fire station
within a matter of five min-
utes or catch up with the
other fire trucks. This is
absolutely insane to send
that truck out with the cost
of it and with two employ-
ees tied up.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Read the
next two calls.
Not amused. If you want
a good laugh, just read the
Let'em Have It column
about the firefighters going
in Publix for their lunch. I
often have wondered why it
takes a big, big fire truck and
three fireman to go in Publix
every noon for their lunch.
Whoever gave the dumb ed-
itorial answer must think ev-
erybody in Venice is stupid.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Read the
next call.
No break. I am a retired
police officer from New
York. I get urked every time I
read an article about the fire


department truck being
some place getting supper.
Let these people under-
stand something. There is
no such thing as a sched-
uled lunch or supper break
for policemen or firemen.
You take it when you can.
You don't always keep it. I
don't know how many
meals I've thrown out the
window of my patrol car
because I got a rush call, or
how many times I had to
leave a restaurant and a nice
hot meal behind because I
had to respond to an emer-
gency call. So, whoever you
people are out there, get this
straight: We do not have a
scheduled lunch or supper
hour. We do it when we can
and if we can. When they
send the fire truck out to get
a meal, it's so that if they get
an emergency call, they can
all jump in the truck and
respond, not go back to the
firehouse and pick up the
necessaryman power. There
are not that many men
available. Whatever crews
are there, are in the truck.
Please get this through your
head. Look at it this way:
They're doing you a favor. If
your house should catch
fire, they're going to jump
into the truck and all re-
spond, and they're not going
to have supper or lunch.
Give them a little leeway.


These guys are doing this
service to save you. I don't
want to see any more things
in the paper about lunch
hour and the trucks parking
outside of Publix or a
restaurant.
Shot. I wonder if you can
help. I have been waiting for
a list of the places that offer
flu shots to seniors in the
community. I haven't seen
the list for Publix, and Publix
used to put out fliers when
you went in. I live on the
island and would like a flu
shot, but I don't know where
to go to get one. It would be
most helpful if you would
print a list in your paper.
Thank you very much.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Flu-shot
clinics were scheduled
through October; we printed
the list several times. Call the
Sarasota County Health
Department, 861-2784, or
visit www.sarasotahealth.org
to see where shots may be
available now.
Politics. Concerned cit-
izens should write to the
attorney general of Florida if
they find the failure of the
Sarasota County state attor-
ney to bring criminal charg-
es in the Venice Sunshine
Law fiasco to be politically
motivated. There is a fine
line between "I didn't fully
understand the law, nobody
explained it to me," and
secret codes and couriers
carrying secret messages
like a spy novel. This mat-
ter is growing whiskers.
The resources and weight
of the state's investigators
should now be brought to
this abomination.


Bind up the nation's wounds


ROBERT BONADONNA
GUEST COLUMNIST


Our democracy has
performed its fundamen-
tal right and duty. We have
arrived at that privilege
allotted to us by the strug-
gle and blood of many
generations of heroes and
statesmen.
Like us, these preceding
generations had passion-
ate and differing beliefs.
We had Federalists, Whigs,
liberals, conservatives,
Christians, Jews, deists
and nonbelievers. From
this diversity and conflict-
ing philosophies was
molded "one nation, indi-
visible." Our differences
became our foundation
and strength. From many,
one (E pluribus unum).
We took the early
democratic principle from
ancient Greece and built
on it, improved it, polished
it. But by its very permis-
sive definition, democracy
- freedom for such a
great variety of ideologies
can become messy at
times.
Our recent, sometimes
contentious and combat-
ive campaigns have inflict-
ed many philosophical
and political wounds.


Passions have been deep,
and too often bitter, unfair
and even dishonest.
We are an arrogant and
often aggressive species.
This conviction that we
are right and the others are
wrong is hard-wired into
our survivalist natures.
Both sides have been
guilty and crossed the line
on occasion. Many have
whipped themselves into
a hate of their equally wor-
thy, and guilty, adversaries.
The battle is over. The
winners and losers should
withdraw from the battle-














I,


field without malice to-
ward courageous and
equally patriotic oppo-
nents. We must now, as
Lincoln advised, "Bind up
the nation's wounds." We
must come together again
as past generations of
American warriors and
patriots have done.
We must devote our-
selves to the "great task
remaining before us" in
this world arena, and in


these troubled economic
and political times. This
requires that we and our
leaders join forces again
and address the econom-
ic, ecological and other
challenges facing the
United States and this tiny,
fragile sphere that we all
inhabit.
Our nation and the
world are on a dangerous
brink, in so many ways.
Fighting or hating our do-
mestic and foreign adver-
saries will not help any of
us, it will only deepen our
problems. As I learned in
China during World War II,
we must all "gung ho" -
work together for the
common good of our
country and the world.
This fragile home called
Earth is in need of greater
care and nurturing for
coming generations. Now
that our contentious elec-
tion is over, it is time to
bury the bitterness and
work together to make our
nation and the world a liv-
able place for our progeny
and all the peoples of our
planet.
We must put our polar-
izing labels away. No more
Democrat, Republican, lib-
eral or conservative. Let us
get back to the most im-
portant and unifying la-
bels: Americans and hu-
man beings all.

Robert Bonadonna, a
resident of Venice, is a for-
mer management execu-
tive and owner ofa con-
sulting business. He sub-

MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST


Sheepshead

Sheepshead 2005-06, revisited:

"December and January
sheepshead fishing was way off.
The fish were affected even
before we knew red tide was in
the area.
By mid-January and February,
red tide was in the air and the
sheepies still weren't very visible
and definitely not biting. About
Feb. 20, they arrived, but still
weren't biting. By the end of
February, the red tide was so bad
that I decided to stay away.
I had a phone call from a
friend early on March 7. He told
me that nobody was fishing at
the jetty, but the water had
cleared up and the sheepies
were all over the place. Little did
I know what was going to hap-
pen for the next week.
Here it is March 7: 12 ...
March 10: 15 ... March 11: 31 ...
March 12: 35 ... March 13: 34 ...
March 14: 32. The weather was
horrible March 8-9, otherwise
my total of 159 would have been
even higher. On March 15, they
completely stopped biting. I had
several small nibbles, but no
fish. The next day, the same
story. The season was over."

Remember, this was three
years ago. This season should be
completely different. I realize
that the past two seasons have
been off. The good news is that
sheepies are all over the place
already. I couldn't resist telling
you about bad things that
turned into great things.
Well, fellow Sheepsheadites,
the time has come to say good-
bye until next week.

Mr Sheepshead is Dave Hack.

Wednesday. Contact him at

The Venice High School swim
team qualified 14 swimmers
Saturday at the District 3A-6
swimming and diving meet.
Twelve of them (6 boys, 6 girls)
are bound for Thursday's Region
3A-2 meet at Florida Gulf Coast
University in Fort Myers.
The Indians placed in the top
eight in 16 of 24 events at the dis-
trict meet. Senior Mark Cox cap-
tured a district title in the 200-
free and 100-fly. Senior Tyler
Revels picked up a champi-
onship in the 100-breast. Those
two are almost guaranteed to
make a third consecutive trip to
the state meet.
Cox has a good chance at
repeating his 2006 state title. As a
sophomore he took out two
juniors for the Class 3A state
championship in the 100-fly.
Those two seniors edged him
out a year later, but now the


senior Cox stands alone. His
seed time of 51.62 is a good two
seconds faster than anyone in
the state. It has also earned him
All-America consideration.
"We're not going to get cocky,
though," Venice head coach
John Bruenning said. "He's got
some more work to do. He won't
be happy if he goes that time
again (at regions)."
Revels has yet to reach the
pinnacle and win a state cham-
pionship, but he'll likely get one
more shot before graduating.
Bruenning said Revels has the
potential to swim a 56-second
100-breast. Last year's Class 3A
state champion in that event
swam it in 58.13. Revels swam it
in 1:02.32 at districts.
Freshman Derek Pridemore,
who qualified for regions by
placing seventh in the 200-free
and sixth in the 500-free, could
make his state meet debut this
season.
"Pridemore is going to have to


step up," Bruenning said. "If he
goes his best time in the 500-
free, he'll make state. The 200-
free is going to be tight."
The freshman swam 4:55.91
in the 500-free. Bruenning said
he would probably need to
break 4:50 Thursday to make it
to the next level. He could also
get there in the 200-free by shav-
ing 2-3 seconds off his 1:51.19
mark in the 200-free.
"He's definitely got the talent
to do it," Bruenning said.
The coach expects Cox and
Revels to make it and would love
to see Pridemore get there as an
individual as well. All three are
expected to make it to states in
the 200-free and/or 200-medley
relays.
As far as the girls are con-
cerned, Bruenning doesn't
expect them to make it past
regions. He can't count them
out, either.
"Girls high school swimming
in this state is so fast," he said.


"We have an outside shot, we
have a couple girls that could
make it, but we just have to wait
and see."
Danielle Manthey, Jetta
Wright and Melinda Spinella
have the best shot at qualifying
as individuals. Manthey and
Wright swam the 100-free in
57.27 and 57.47, respectively.
Bruenning said if they can again
break 58, they have a shot at
states.
Spinella, who swam the 500-
free in 5:28.55 at districts, proba-
bly needs to shave about 14 sec-
onds off her time.
"I would love for our girls to
make it, but it's just one of those
things," Bruenning said. "You
never know. Every once and a
while a kid will surprise you and
throw up a time you never
expected."
Thursday's meet begins at 9
a.m. Finals are scheduled for 5
p.m.

Underestimated Indians prep for playoff run


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High School vol-
leyball team is 20-8.
At this point of the season in
2005, the last time the Indians
won a state title, their record was
21-7.
Both groups started their sea-
sons underestimated. The '05
group was led by a host of
sophomores. The '08 group has
no seniors. This year's team
appears to be peaking at just the
right time, much like their pre-
decessors did.
Venice hosts St. Petersburg
Northeast High School Wednes-
day at 7 p.m. in the Teepee for
the Region 5A-3 quarterfinals.
It's win or go home time. Five
more wins gets you a state
championship.
"It's our goal every year to win
a state championship," Venice
head coach Brian Wheatley said
following the Indians' District
5A-12 championship win over
Manatee High School. But can it
be done this year, as in '05?
"I never like to compare
teams because they've all got
their little personality," Wheatley
said after practice Tuesday. "I
know that we're playing great
volleyball right now and we're

night's match against St. Petersburg Northeast High School. This match
will be the quarterfinal match in the Region 5A-3 Tournament.


playing with a lot of confi-
dence."
Wheatley didn't talk about
this group of girls that way
back in August. He guaranteed
they would look "terrible at
times." They have, but they've
looked much better much
more often, which he also
promised. More importantly,


they've looked near unstop-
pable as of late.
Since St. Thomas Aquinas
High School swept the Indians
Oct. 1, Venice has won eight of
its last nine matches includ-
ing wins over volleyball pow-
ers Tampa Preparatory, Winter
Springs High, PK. Yonge
Developmental Research and


Fort Myers High schools. The
only loss came to a Berkeley
Preparatory School team that
had not lost to a team from
Florida all season.
"We're peaking at the right
time," Wheatley said.
Junior Emily Daniels emerged
as a terminator on the outside in
Gainesville during the Gator
Town Classic. Dorothy Rahal has
shown exactly why she's headed
for Marshall University on a vol-
leyball scholarship in 2010.
Sophomore Autumn Duyn has
been phenomenal from the ser-
vice line and junior setter Taylor
Capasso can set, tip and even
sometimes come up with a
block. Junior Whitney Steranko
has finally emerged as a force in
the middle and back row defense
has been stellar, no matter who's
back there.
"This team has the 'it' factor,
definitely. I don't know what the
'it' factor is, but there are certain
teams that have the 'it' factor,"
Wheatley said. "This team, they
act like champions, they think
like champions, they practice
like champions. What more can
you ask?"
For starters, a quarterfinal
win over Northeast.

VHS FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK

Freshmen, JV cap


off perfect seasons

BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

Only time will tell if this group of baby Indians will
grow up to be stars at the varsity level, but one thing
is certain: these guys are winners.
Both the freshmen and junior varsity football
teams at Venice High School finished their respec-
tive seasons undefeated. The freshmen finished 8-0
and the JV finished 7-0. With the varsity team cur-
rently at 8-0, the Venice football program is a com-
bined 23-0 in 2008.
"I don't know if that can tell the story of the future.
I think it's all about personnel and who can replace
who as people graduate, but I'm definitely happy
how it turned out," said varsity head coach John
Peacock. "Obviously we've got winners. If you've got
winners and you bring up winners that are used to
winning, that's important."
While instilling a winning tradition and attitude is
vital to a football program, junior varsity head coach
Pete Dombroski says there's more to it that that. At
the lower levels, it's all about preparing individual
players for the varsity ranks.
"Your No. 1 priority is to those kids," said
Dombroski, who also serves as assistant athletic
director at Venice. "You have to teach them the sys-
tem, make sure they know the system well enough to
be able to come up and fit in with the varsity. That's
got to be your No. 1 priority and if you win along the
way, that's icing on the cake."
Though the JV enjoyed leadership from quarter-
back A.J. Rotella, who was among the 12 players
called up to varsity this week, Dombroski's team was
devoid of any one superstar.
"It was 27 kids pulling together for a common
goal," Dombroski said. "They became a team. That's
the biggest issue for winning. You have to be a team

before you can win."
The freshmen, on the other hand,
had a few stars that could make an
immediate impact with the varsity
squad.
Running back Jihad Williams was
awesome at times (and big, for a
freshman) and could compete for the
tailback position after Dri Archer
graduates.
Quarterback Zach Flerlage showed
great decision making for a freshman.
He also proved to be quite elusive.
Both Flerlage and Williams have been
called up for the remainder of the var-
sity season.
Freshmen head coach Wayne
Skelton added that Williams had help
in the running game from fullback
Jack Jesky along with right tackle
Michael Friend and right guard Jeff
Blackburn.
"They were really something on
the right-hand side," Skelton said.
"We commonly saw Mr. Williams
running behind them. They did a
super job."
Friend is now a member of the var-
sity team for the remainder of the
season.
"Most of them have good potential,
the really do," Skelton said. "I would
say the ones John (Peacock) asked to
pull up are probably the ones that
would have an immediate impact,
but we've all seen late bloomers and
sleepers come out of nowhere."
Skelton and his staff, which
includes Pete Walker (defensive coor-
dinator), Rich Starowesky (DL/OL)
and Tony Rotella, have one of the
toughest jobs in the Venice football
program. They get a completely new
team each year and have a very short
amount of time to groom them for the
demands of a championship-caliber
program.

"It's wonderful," he said. "We get 50
little soldiers starting in June and they
learn to march and they learn yes sir
and no sir. That's the way we want
them, disciplined and focused."
Backup controversy?
Not really. Backup quarterback Joe
lorio has been itching to move to wide
receiver, where he played all spring.
Now that Rotella has made the move
from JV to varsity, he's the new backup.
Quarterbacks coach Jon Cooley said
there would be a competition between
Iorio and Rotella in case of an injury,
but expect to see Rotella late in games
when Venice has a big lead.
Cooley added that lorio will be
capable of helping the team at wide-
out. By throwing one more body into
the rotation, that frees up Justin Grant
to rest for play on the other side of the
ball.
Rest the starters?
Not really. Though there is little
doubt the Indians would like to get
their second-teamers some time
against North Port High School Friday,
there are no plans to hold anybody
out. Venice has already clinched the
District 5A-11 title and a playoff berth.
"I think we've got to keep the
momentum going into the playoffs,"
Peacock said. "Definitely, I think it's
important that we're healthy, but at
the same time we have to keep the
ball rolling."
Peacock admitted to holding
something back after the Indians
clinched a spot in the playoffs a year
ago. After Venice defeated Manatee
for the 2007 district championship,
they lost their last two games to
Booker and Cape Coral high schools.
"I learned the hard way," Peacock
said. "I think we've shown enough
and we're not going to hide from any-
body now."


YOUTH SPORTS CORNER


Knights run through
Sundevils, Riverdale next

BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice Vikings Pop Warner
Football and Cheer Organization's
Junior Pee Wee division got a little
revenge over the weekend.
The Knights (7-3) eliminated
the Sarasota Sundevils 34-12 in
the second round of playoffs
Saturday. Sarasota defeated
Venice 7-6 earlier this season,
but it's the Knights who will be
playing for the Peace River
Conference championship this
Saturday in North Fort Myers.
"There were a lot of things
different (from the last game).
We were motivated in this one,"
Venice head coach Mike Trapani
said. "Probably the biggest dif-
ference was five more weeks of
instruction, five more weeks of
coaching. We have such a good
coaching staff that five weeks
can make a big difference for
us."
The Knights lost a defensive
struggle the first time, but all the
struggling in the Division 1 North
title game was on the Sarasota
side of the ball. The Sundevils
managed just 126 yards of total
offense on 27 total plays. Venice's
power running attack ran 54
plays not one was a passing
attempt for 276 yards.
Offensive linemen Andrew
Harvey, Ibrihim Muhammed,
Michael Miller, PJ. Ewing, Jacob
Szuhany, David Reister and Kade
Sleight won the battle up front all
afternoon.

Joey Morgan led the
offense with 103 yards and
a touchdown on 15 carries.
Aaron Hackett ran 12
times for 91 yards and a
score. Kyle Johnson picked
up 33 yards and two
touchdowns on 16 tries.
Stone Wilson ran it four
times for 15 yards and a
touchdown.
Key plays on special
teams put this one out of
reach early. Bo Williams
blocked two Sarasota
extra-point attempts. On
the flip side, kicker Jacob
Szuhany punched two
extra points through for
the Knights. Extra points
count for two in Pop
Warner football, so that's
an eight-point swing in
favor of Venice on special
teams alone.
Combine that with
opportunistic plays on
defense byAndrew Shofner
(1 interception) and Dan


Dinka (1 fumble recovery),
and you have a 34-12 rout.
Venice will face power-
house Riverdale in the
conference championship
game Saturday at 11 a.m.
Riverdale (8-0) allowed 19
points in their season
opener and has not been
scored on since. Venice
lost 13-0 to Riverdale dur-
ing the regular season, but
the game was tied to start
the fourth quarter. Trapani
hopes the outcome will be
different this time around.
"We just have to play
our game," he said. "We
can't get out of what we're
good at doing. We just
have to keep doing what
we've been doing all year."
The winner of the Peace
River Conference title will
advance to the Division 1
championship in Miami
Nov. 16.

LAMINATE/WOOD FLOORING TILE CARPET AREA RUGS


Ar


. /MB Mark ""'-
Twain once
remarked that "golf is a
good walk spoiled," but
the opposite may be true.
That is, walking the course
may spoil a golfer's score.
This finding emerged after
researchers studied recreational
golfers who played a simulated
) golf game carrying weighted golf
bags. The golfers'body mechanics
changed for the worse, causing
them to hit with less distance and
accuracy. The golfers were less able
to properly transfer weight to their
front legs during a swing, which
resulted in less club-head velocity.
The angles of golfers'front knees
and ankles also changed at the
top of their swings. These
findings suggest that golf
mechanics and performance
may decline the longer a golfer
walks and swings.

i T


O'Donnell


of Edie
O'Donnell,
his wife of
66 years,
Lawrence
H. O'Don-
nell went to
join her.
Born Aug.
18, 1920, in
St. Louis,
Mo., his par-


Sent were
S Cornelius ("High-
pockets") and
S Emily O'Donnell.
He graduated from
McBride High School in St.
Louis, played football for
the University of Dayton
and was graduated from
the University of Missouri
with a degree in chemical
engineering.
During World War II,
while his bride began rais-
ing the family, Larry
served as an officer in the
U.S. Navy, primarily on
board the USS Marshall
(DD-676), a warship fresh-
ly minted at the Brooklyn
Naval Yard, which saw
action in several engage-
ments in the Pacific the-
ater, including the Battle
of Leyte Gulf, the largest
naval battle in history.
After the war, he worked
for the Veterans Admin-
istration and was called
up in the Korean War,
serving in the Pentagon
and at atomic test sites in
the United States. In the
course of time, he and
his wife lived in various
parts of the country,
including Louisville, San
Diego, Oklahoma City
and Washington, D.C.
After his service ended,
he and his family moved
to Chester County when
he took a job with the
DuPont Company, work-
ing for some 25 years at
the Louviers Building near


Newark, while residing in
Kennett Square and rais-
ing a family of four chil-
dren and various animals.
He had a long-stand-
ing interest in education-
al matters, and read and
followed the teachings of
Dr. B.E Skinner. He exper-
imented in "positive rein-
forcement" theory, and
once trained a cat to stare
at a wall when she want-
ed to be fed. He worked
on the development of
"teaching machines," often
trying out new programs
on his children.
Two bouts with serious
cancers occasioned his
retirement from DuPont
and Edie's retirement as
the school nurse at
Kennett High School, and
began the best 25 years of
their lives. The couple
moved to Florida, first
residing in Osprey and
then in Venice until
recently moving back to
Chester County. They also
spent about 20 years living
in their self-designed and
self-built cottage in Grand
Cayman during the winter
months.
He is survived by four
children and their spous-
es: Lawrence and Susan
O'Donnell of Chester
Springs, Patrick O'Donnell
and Hannah Gardner of
West Chester, Katie and
Rob Mehne of Sycamore,
Ill., and Marnie and Ed
Graybill of Lusaka, Zambia;
and by 11 grandchildren
and now eight great-
grandchildren. His sib-
lings have predeceased,
but he is survived by his
wife's sister, Patricia
O'Dowd Metz of Venice,
Fla.
Services: Interment will
be private and an Irish
wake will be held at a later
date, to celebrate both of
their lives when all the
family can be together.
Arrangements are by
DellaVecchia, Reilly, Smith


& Boyd Funeral Home
Inc., (610) 696-1181 or

Contributions: In lieu of
flowers, the family
requests that donations be

O'Donnell to the Barclay

1ST BIRTHDAY

Mulvihill


Greyson Patrick Mulvi-
hill turned 1 year old on
Nov. 9, 2008. He is the son
of Rachel and Michael
Mulvihill of Altamonte


Springs, Fla., the grandson
of Frank and Nancy Viggi-
ano and the great-grand-
son of Robert and Valerie
Wallen ofVenice.


ARTfrom Page 1B


At the corner of Turin Street and South
Nokomis Avenue, the building had a
small entrance gallery, a larger exhibition
gallery, two studios and a room that pro-
vided studio or exhibition space as need-
ed by its 300 members, who paid dues of
$5 per year.
The original lease has long since been
renegotiated and the site enlarged. In
1996 ground was broken for the center's
largest expansion the creation of the
Pat Buster Gallery, two outdoor court-
yards, additional studio and retail space
and room for the center's popular Garden
Party Cafe.
The cafe is open daily for lunch from
11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The center itself is open
Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4
p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The next 50
Local artist Tonya Sauppe is the cur-
rent president of the center's board of
directors, an all-volunteer group that
plans programs and fundraising events.
Sauppe has actively worked on redecorat-
ing the center and annually decorates a
Christmas tree, which is sold to raise
funds for the center.


This year's tree, decorated in fossil sea
shells, will be unveiled Dec. 5 at the cen-
ter's Golden Anniversary Tea Party. Tick-
ets for afternoon tea and entertainment
including the Madrigal Singers of Venice
High School and a fashion show from
Casa de Quetzel, are $35 per person and
are already in short supply. Call 485-7136.
Also in the works is development of a
joint program with the Loveland Center.
Sauppe also oversees the balcony art
gallery at the Venice Theatre, coordinat-
ing displays with its mainstage and Stage
Two productions. Marilyn LoBallister, the
center's managing director, is one of just
four paid employees. There are more than
600 volunteers; Sauppe hopes to double
that number in the next few years.
Moving into its second half-century,
the Venice Art Center has earned its place
as a cultural hub in Venice. The VAC is at
390 S. Nokomis Ave., Venice.
For information on the VAC, visit
www.veniceartcenter.com or call 485-

A new look at


diabetes and vision


FROM NAPSA


People with diabetes
know well that healthy
diet, exercise and regular
glucose monitoring are
essential for reducing
the risk of serious, even
life-threatening compli-
cations. But for people
with diabetes and vision
loss a common side
effect of advanced dia-
betes there's yet anoth-
er level of complication
and risk added to a
patient's treatment regi-
men. If you are one of
the 3 million Americans
now living with both
conditions, there is a
new guide from the
American Foundation
for the Blind to help you
manage your health
safely and effectively.
The guide, available at
www.afb.org/seniorsite,
addresses the health
issues facing people with
diabetes and vision loss,
such as diet, exercise and
monitoring blood glu-
cose levels. The good
news is that with the help
of specially trained
health professionals, you
can learn the skills to
independently manage
your diabetes. Some of
these tips include:
Eat smart. Healthy
eating is where all dia-
betes care begins. Control-
ling carbohydrates and
fats, using whole grains
and eating plenty of fresh
vegetables are familiar
guidelines to most peo-
ple living with diabetes.
If you also have vision
loss, you can learn adap-
tive techniques for gro-
cery shopping and
preparing meals, and
giving special attention
to measuring portion
sizes accurately.
Stay active. Regular
physical activity is
essential to diabetes
management. It helps
keep heart and blood
vessels healthy, can help
prevent diabetes-related
complications and can
help to keep blood glu-
cose levels near normal.
Many physical activities
can be adapted and
enjoyed by people with

agement. Fortunately, many
physical activities can be
adapted and enjoyed by peo-
ple with vision loss.

vision loss, including
walking, dancing, gar-
dening, swimming and
tandem biking. Remem-
ber to talk to your doctor
before starting an exer-
cise program.
Monitor your health.
When managing dia-
betes, your good health
depends on your ability
to monitor and under-
stand your blood sugar,
as well as your blood
pressure, weight and
body temperature. If you
have vision loss, consid-
er investing in large-
print or talking blood
glucose meters, blood
pressure monitors, ther-
mometers and weight
scales.
Manage your medica-
tion. Medication man-
agement is one of the
earliest obstacles that
people with vision loss
must confront in order to
continue living indepen-
dently. Most people are
able to address these
issues by adopting a few
new skills that apply to
everything from taking
aspirin for a headache to
measuring insulin.

successfully managing
diabetes with vision loss,

Jeannette Hanchey-Flok-
stra took the helm at the
Venice Yacht Club, receiving
the first Legacy of Leadership
Award from the South
County Family YMCA.
"All your friends at the

more than 35 years of love,
time and dedication," the
program read.
Ken Modzelewski, Grady


Hough, Mike Miller, Bob
Vedder, Tony Levering and
Michelle Hazeltine echoed
those sentiments, talking
about the Hanchey legacy.
Over the years I saw
Jeannette wearing a dazzling
gown to the black-tie event
she originated and on the
next day dressed in shorts
with a chain saw trimming
bushes at the facility.
Jeannette and her late
husband Herb deserve the
heartfelt thanks of this com-
munity for sharing their
blessings and their commit-
ment to the YMCA.
And the winner is
Executive chefs Rolando
Cassillas of the Sarasota
Yacht Club, Jack Arendt of
the Tampa Yacht Club and

won the People's Choice
Award.
The chefs wowed the
crew with their delicious and
elegantly served samples.

annual competition. His staff
served dinner to Venice Yacht
Club members and friends.
"The event gives chefs a
chance to earn points toward
their certification," said

This dedicated woman
worked all year gathering his-

made sure the data were dis-
played at the Legacy of

in an orderly way, giving
everyone a chance to enjoy

Volkswagen's All-New Clean Diesel Jetta TDI
Sets New Guinness World Record for Lowest
Fuel Consumption: 58.82 MPG.


The Taylors break Guinness World Record
driving a stock clean diesel Jetta TDI*


HERNDON, Va., Sept. 29 / PRNewswire/ The
world's most fuel efficient couple, John and Helen Taylor,
have broken the current world record for lowest fuel
consumption across the 48 contiguous United States
averaging 58.82 miles to the gallon. They ended their 20
day trip in West Virginia on Thursday, September 25, 2008.
To help them break the world record, they drove the all new,
50 state-compliant clean diesel Volkswagen Jetta TDI,
fueled by Shell Ultra Low Sulfur diesel fuel under real world
driving conditions, simply applying easy to use fuel saving
tips and the latest efficient engine technology available for
good cleaning diesel fun.
"We are very excited and grateful to have broken the
current Guinness World Record for lowest fuel consumption
across the 48 contiguous United States," said Helen Taylor.
"We would like to thank Volkswagen for providing us their
new clean diesel Jetta that helped us get another World
Record and to Shell for supplying the diesel fuel."
The previous Guinness World Record for the lowest
fuel consumption on a nationwide drive was 51.58 miles per
gallon and the Taylors broke it by setting a new record of
58.82 miles per gallon, a whopping 14 percent
improvement. In 20 days, driving across 48 states the
Taylors drove 9,419 miles, exceeding 60 mpg on several
legs of the record-setting run, spending only 6.9 cents per
mile (total was $653). "The terrain was very diverse, the
weather less than ideal, and the traffic heavy at rush hour
and the VW Jetta TDI handled it all beautifully, showing its
fuel efficiency and its fun-to-drive dynamic capability, just
two of this vehicle's many attributes," said John Taylor. "The
car efficiently helped us to drive to a fuel economy world
record."
People were encouraged to e-mail the Taylors along
the way at: fuelacademy@gmail.com with any questions
they may have about the tour, the vehicle or about fuel
economy tips and join their "Fan" page on Facebook.com.
As of the end of the trip, more than 2,000 people have e-
mailed the Taylors.
Approximately 12 official check-in and refueling stops
across the country were included throughout the duration of
the drive. The couple drove on a counterclockwise route
passing through, Washington D.C.; New York City; Rutland,
Vermont; Toledo, Ohio; Des Moines, Iowa; Spearfish, South
Dakota; Missoula, Montana; Winnemucca, Nevada; Santa
Monica, California; Durango, Colorado; Oklahoma City,
Oklahoma; Mount Vernon, Illinois; Ponchatoula, Louisiana
and Beckley, West Virginia. Some of the fuel saving tips the


Taylor advocate include: avoiding idling and higher speeds,
minimizing vehicle drag and performing regular vehicle
maintenance.
The Taylors have made a 26-year career out of driving
economically and conducting workshops globally on fuel-
efficient driving techniques. They have collected 82 world
fuel economy and vehicle-related records from drives
around the globe in Australia, Asia, South Africa, Europe,
the Middle East and North America.
Via their website, the Taylors will be sharing their
personal experiences on the road. For more information and
regular reports from the road, visit http:/
www.fuelacademy.com and
http://www.media.vw.com. For a complete list of fuel-
saving driving tips, visit http://www.shell.com/us/
fuelstretch.


Far from secretive techniques or driving at a snail's pace,
the Taylors employed "Fuel Stretch" Techniques
(http://www.shel I.us/home/content/usa/products
services/on the road/fuels/fuel stretch/fuelstretch
052908.html)
that they developed jointly with Shell Oil. Driving
economically is a way of life for the Taylors; they've been
earning world records for 26 years, and this record marks
their 37th world fuel economy world record. They also
conduct workshops around the world on fuel-efficient
driving techniques.

Via their website, they Taylors share experiences from their
journey. For more information and reports, visit their Fuel
Academy Website.
