study to cost $212,000


Expect it to take up to another year for the city to


adopt an airport master pl

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Venice City Council spent the
better part of Tuesday's regular
meeting choosing from a list of
airport consultant services to
update its master plan and air-
port layout plan.
A draft scope of services plan
was submitted for discussion
purposes that lists the costs of
each service provided. DY
Consultants characterized their
final work product as an "adden-
dum" to the airport master plan
that was completed last year by
Hanson Professional Services,


an.

but not adopted by city council.
If the city had contracted for
all the services it inquired about,
it could have cost more than
$305,000, estimated DY Con-
sultants. Council members ob-
jected to, among other things,
the $67,000 price tag for com-
munity consensus building
activities culminating in four
planned public meetings.
In the end they agreed on ser-
vices that approximate a
$212,000 contract. The contract
will be paid from the city's air-
port enterprise fund.
Council Members Kit Mc-
Keon, John Moore and Mayor Ed


Martin led the discussion to pare
down a number of expensive
studies. They cut studies on eco-
nomic implications of changing
the airport layout plan, air qual-
ity and an environmental study.
More than $350,000 was
spent last year on Hanson (for-
merly MEA Group) for a revised
master plan and airport layout
plan that was later rejected by
city council. The Federal
Aviation Administration paid for
the study completed in 2007, but
declined to pay for a second
study, after council rejected the
first one. To the city's relief, the
FAA didn't ask the city for a reim-
bursement.
'On the table'
City officials criticized the


Hanson plan for its "highly spec-
ulative" traffic counts. The
extrapolation models were FAA
approved but, said Martin, were
based on things like "income
models, none of which are valid
today."
"Big numbers sometimes
help" generate funding interest
at the federal level, he said.
"Meanwhile, we have a different
mission."
"Quite frankly, the MEA
(Hanson) plan was done techni-
cally well," said DY Consultants
program manager Lisa Mastro-
pieri.
There were just "a few things
missing," she said, like a more
detailed runway safety analysis.
"Those are key" to coming up
with an alternative airport lay-


out plan, she said.
A large part of Tuesday's
council meeting was spent dis-
cussing downgrading the air-
port.from a C-II code to a B-II
code, even though FAA offi-
cials have already told the city
it's a C-II.
The C-II airport code indi-
cateslarger aircraft also utilize
the airfields. Downgrading t6 a
B-II airport code, some say,
could deter some of the larger
aircraft, in theory keeping the
airport small and noise levels
down. Experts say that's not like-
ly
DY'consultants said the B-II
Designation would make little
Difference in the final analysis.

Task force interested



in short-term rentals


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


The city of Venice Environ-
mental Task Force recently came
up with some novel ideas to pro-
mote eco-tourism in Venice, but
first it wanted to address where
tourists will find affordable,
quality places to stay while visit-
ing the area.
A shortage of hotel rooms on
the island has long been identi-
fied as a stumbling block to


advancing tourism in the area.
Although city council has ap-
proved the building of two on
the island, it's uncertain if either
will be built anytime soon due to
the sagging economy.
One controversial idea the
task force came up with was to
ask city council to reconsiderthe
direction it's heading over short-
term rentals.
The task force agreed to send
a letter to council asking it to
reconsider a proposed ban on


one- and two-week home rent-
als.
"There is strong opposition to
short-term rentals," warned
Ernie Zavodnyik, council's liai-
son to the task force. "Whether
you can turn that around, I don't
know."
Council has already consid-
ered a draft rewrite of the city
code to. effect the ban, and will
consider it again at a workshop

County OKs foreclosure aid


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

County homeowners facing
foreclosure will soon have
access to information and funds
that may help them save their
homes.
Following a presentation
Tuesday by Deputy County Ad-
ministrator Susan Scott, the
Sarasota County Commission
offered its unanimous blessing
to the creation of a Foreclosure
and Recovery Assistance Net-
work an integrated group of
'community resources dedicated
to finding comprehensive reso-
lutions for households in crisis.
"The national housing crisis

is affecting Sarasota County citi-
zens, with approximately 8,000
pending foreclosures in the judi-
cial process and an additional
900 filings occurring monthly,"
Scott has said.
She said that about 43 per-
cent of all foreclosure filings are
homesteaded homes and 30 per-


cent are home-
steaded prop-
erties with "just
market value"
of less than
$300,000, rep-
resenting

to be funded with reallocations
of $164,202 from the Commun-

- along with $100,000 allocated

GCCFV housing project

questioned, approved


Moore Martin
BY GREG GILES
NEWS-EDITOR


Gulf Coast Community Foun-
dation ofVenice received the OK
for a rezone application on Tues-
day that allows it to move for-
ward with a planned communi-
ty development called The
Bridges,
The project goal is to create a
village that includes work force
housing in a mixed-use residen-
tial-commercial setting.
It's a unique design being
closely watched all across Florida.
Bordered on the north by
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.

mixed-use
buildings in
the northern
"town center"
and southern
M...."neighbory-
Boone hood center"
could reach 60
feet in height. Most of the single
family residences are 35 feet,
while multi-family units can go
up to 50 feet.
In the original plan one third
of the units were committed to
'work force housing," although
GCCFV was unwilling to commit
to an exact number of units due
to uncertain economic and
housing conditions.
That was the remaining stick-
ing point at Tuesday's meeting,
where city council reviewed ap-
plication materials that had
been revised to de-emphasize
"affordable" housing.
"I am not prepared to consid-
er this application if it is not

State, local graduation rates up; dropout rates down


BY AUDREY
BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER


A state report on high
school graduation rates
issued last month showed
improvements across the
state and for Sarasota
County students.
Florida's graduation
rate reached the highest
point it has ever reached
last year, 75.4 percent, a
release from Gov. Charlie
Crist's office said, based on
results released by the
Florida Department of
Education. The state grad-
uation rate was 72.4 per-
cent in 2006-07.
"This rate exceeds the
previous year's rate by
three percentage points
and represents an overall
improvement of 15.2 per-
centage points since the
1998-99 school year," the
release said.
The percent of Sarasota
County School District high
school students who grad-
uated in 2007-08 rose to 86,
a 2.5-percentage point
increase over the previous
year's rate of 83.5 percent.
In Sarasota County and
across the state, an
increased number of
minority graduates appears
to play a significant role in
the rate irtiprovement.
According to a school
district release, graduation
rates for all ethnic groups
Shave increased.
"The rise from 2006-07
was 6.5 percent for black
students, 4 percent for
Hispanic students and 2.4
percent for white students,"
the district release said.
Minority graduation
rates across the state
showed some of the largest
growth this year, according
to the governor's release.
Graduation rates for black
students increased by 3.8
percentage points and


Hispanic students by 3.1
percentage points.
"White students also
showed sizable growth,
with a 2.6-point increase
in their rate compared to
2006-07," the release said.
Calculation
Florida's graduation
rate measures the percent-
age of students who grad-
uate within four years of
their first enrollment in
ninth grade, according to a
FDOE data report.
"Subsequent to their
enrollment in ninth grade,
exiting transfers and
deceased students are
removed from the calcula-
tion. Entering transfer stu-
dents are included in the
count of the class with
which they are scheduled to
graduate, based on date of
enrollment," the report said.
The state graduation
rate counts as graduates all
recipients of standard
diplomas, special diplomas
for students with 'disabili-
ties, and regular and adult
GED (General Education
Development) diplomas.
Not all states calculate
graduation rates the same,
which prevents states from
comparing their rates with
each other. A National
Governors Association
compact, which includes
Florida, includes standard
and special diplomas but
excludes all GEDs.
In October, the U.S.
Department of Education
said it would require all
states to adopt a uniform
graduation rate calcula-
tion by 2010-11. This
would come under No
Child Left Behind require-
ments and would include
standard diplomas and
regular GEDs but would
exclude special diplomas
and the adult GED.
A likely scenario for the
future of calculating high


New lease may


lower city take


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


SA city financial analysis
done as part of the
Sharky's lease negotia-
tions shows the restau-
rant took in nearly $8 mil-
lion in revenue last year.
The analysis, prepared
byVenice Finance Director
Jeff Snyder, detailed rents
Sharky's paid to the city,
but not other expenses
involved in running the
restaurant.
The analysis was
released the day before a
special meeting at which
the city council adopted
a new 40-year lease with
Sharky's owners The Pier
Group.
The new contract
increases the base rent but
lowers the city's percentage
on sales, from 5 percent of
sales exceeding $300,000 to
S5 percent of sales exceed-
:ing $2.2 million.
The changes in rent are
essentially a revenue-
neutral trade-off, with
what amounts to a slight
decrease ($454) to the city
had the new contract been
in place last year, accord-
ing to the analysis. As sales
increase, so does the por-
tion of the city's rent that is
tied to gross sales.
In February, the city
received $393,507 from
The Pier Group. Had the
new lease been in place,


it's estimated the lessee
would have been required
to pay the city slightly
more than $393,000.
Snyder said about third
of the city's share ($101,000)
went to the Airport
Enterprise Fund, while
the remainder went into
the Fishing Pier Special
Revenue Fund for mainte-
nance and improvements
to the fishing pier, parking
lots and the newly built,
adjacent park.
Both are funds that help
pay for city-related capital
expenditures. No money
goes to the city's general
fund to support ongoing
operations.
"While I cannot 100
percent guarantee that the
Federal Aviation Adminis-
tration will not take issue
with this procedure, I do
firmly believe that the city
of Venice is on solid
ground with this revenue
split," Snyder said.
He called the Sharky's
lease the "third-most
lucrative lease the Airport
Enterprise Fund enjoys."
The city's lease with the
Venice Golf Association for
the Lake Venice Golf Club,
which takes up far more
land than the 1-acre
restaurant, brought in
$200,000 last year, while the
Venice Jet Center's rent
amounted to $114,000. All
three operations-are on air-
port land owned by the city.


school graduation rates
would be counting them
three different ways.
Dropout rate decline
Florida's high school
dropout rate dropped to
its lowest point in 2007-08
- 2.6 percent, a decrease


of 0.7 percentage points
compared to last year's
rate of 3.3 percent.
Sarasota County's drop-
out rate decreased by 0.6
percentage points to 2.1
percent in 2007-08, which is
0.5 percentage points lower
than the state's dropout rate.


The dropout rate reflects
the percentage of students
in grades nine through 12
who leave school for any
reason other than to trans-
fer to another school or
through graduation.
School district officials
think the increased gradu-


ation rate coupled with a
steady decrease in the
dropout rate may be due
to the district's emphasis
on measuring academic
progress for all students
and for its continued
efforts at helping students
who are struggling.

... make a shorter, narrower ru


Another key decision
will be how to rebuild run-
way 4-22, the noise abate-
ment runway.
Martin said the FAA
officials suggested to him
the city could "make a
shorter, narrower runway
... far from building at full
length. You don't need two
C-II runways. I am simply
pointing out we don't have
agreement to rebuild (run-
way) 4-22, no matter what
happens to the golf
course. That stuff needs to
be discussed. It needs to
be on the table." And it
would cost far less.
Another issue: Runway
protection zones that
reach out over neighbor-
hoods. Martin said reduc-

ing," said Mayor Ed Mart-
in.
He said council had
already made conces-
sions, like rezoning to
the city's Commercial
Mixed-Use zone desig-
nation and allowing
building height up to 60
feet to support afford-
able housing units.
Council Member John
Moore said the height and
density city council agreed
to "were concessions to
encourage the work force
housing."
"The whole reason for
the foundation launching
into a development ven-
ture was to provide work-
force housing," saidVenice
land use attoreyJeffBoone,


representing GCCFV "I
think it's already clear ...
this will have a work force
component. Nothing will
be constructed unless it
makes economic sense."
GCCFV "isn't in a posi-
tion to quantify" the num-
ber of workforce housing
units, Boone said. "They
are committed to provide
as much as they can.
Instead of dreaming a
number up, that's where
they are."
Council voted. 5-0 to
approve the rezone appli-
cation. Council Members
John Simmonds and Vicki
Noren were not present to
vote on final reading.

AID from Page 1A


Fund will serve as a catalyst,
Scott said, to help mitigate a
problem that is sweeping not
only this area, but the nation at
large.
"(The commissioners) agreed
to our action plan and will go
forward with that, as long as
we're not creating any new
bureaucracy or redundant ser-
vices already being provided out
in the community," Scott said
after her presentation.
The creation of a bureaucracy
was Commissioner Joe Bar-
betta's concern. He pointed out
that national services are already
available, such as the National
Foreclosure Mitigation Coun-


selling Program and assistance
from the Florida Housing
Finance Corporation. Between
those two alone, he said, home-
owners have ready access to
financial aid and foreclosure
counseling, for example.
"There's a lot of services out
there," Barbetta said. "What I
don't want to see is a lot of
money spent on getting the pro-
grams going, when the money
could be going (directly) to stop-
ping foreclosures before they
happen."

Criteria
Commissioner Jon Thaxton
agreed with Barbetta, yet saw a


need for foreclosure assistance
at the local level.
"What I'm seeing is, people
are having a hard time embrac-
ing state and federal programs,"
Thaxton said. "I do think the
county could act in the role of
facilitator, of a navigator
(through the system). People are
punch drunk. They can't see
what's- in front of their faces,
because they're so dismayed.
and frustrated with what's hap-
pened to them."
Then commissioners came
up with an action plan with the
following strict criteria:
A maximum loan of $5,000
for qualified applicants whose


income is up to 100 percent of
the area median income
($56,000 for a family of four)'
The value of the home may
not exceed $300,000
t Repayment of the home's
lien would, only be due upon its
eventual sale
The homeowner's financial
hardship must be proven by a
credit counselor
*The act of applying for assis-
tance must be proven to be a last
resort to avoid foreclosure
Homeowners must demon-
strate a capability of making
revised, continuing mortgage
payments once they have
received aid


Scott said a Web site -
www.scgov.net/homehelp -
will be available in the next few
weeks to direct county residents
toward programs and organiza-
tions poised to assist them.
Scott said the county will seek
assistance from its cities to aid in
the effort, noting that North Port
has begun one of its own.
"North Port has put a pro-
gram together where they're
providing people up to $5,000
in assistance to help them stay
in their homes or, failing that,
prevent homelessness," Scott
said.

RENTALS from Page 1A


on short-term rentals
scheduled for Monday,
Dec. 15, at city hall.
That didn't seem to
deter the task force.
The members aren't
looking to overwhelm
neighborhoods with the
rentals, they said, but
merely consider short-
term rentals as one tool
that might be used to
accommodate tourists.
They'd also like to see
more bed & breakfasts on
the island, and possibly an
elderhostel in the area.
Members agreed it was-
n't quite in their mission as
environmental leaders to
help build accommoda-
tions. They plan to pass
their recommendation on
to the city's Economic
Development Task Force
and to city council.
"Hotels are still an issue,
especially beachfront ho-
tels during season," said
John Ryan, president and
CEO of the Venice Area
Chamber of Commerce, at
a recent task force meet-
ing.
He acknowledged the
economic downturn is
delaying many plans, like
the Tra Ponti Spa & Resort
and planned businesses at
the, Venice Train Depot,
both in 'the works for
years. Two missing,bridges
connecting the Sarasota
County Legacy Trail to the
Venetian Waterway Trail
and the future Legacy
Park, stand in the way of
bicyclist touring activities,
he said.
Originally the plan was
to place up to four conces-
sions at the depot. None is
in place.
"We need to think
about eco-tourism and the
ability to travel through
numerous towns," said
Task Force Chair Laurel
Schiller.
Responding to an in-
quiry from Zavodnyik
about advertising in Eur-
ope and elsewhere over-
seas, Ryan said the cham-
ber's budget is limited, but
he is seeing German
tourism "pick up quite a
bit," and the city is "start-
ing to get Brazilians and
tourists from South
American countries."

Foundation gave the task
force numerous ideas on
Show to kick start an eco-
tourism cottage industry.
He called Venice "a slice
of Americana, with its
tremendous access to
beaches, the Nolen plan...
it's authentic Florida.
When you come to Venice
there are beaches and the
Venice Avenue (canopy)
and shops and low density
... this doesn't exist any-
where else. Sharky's does-
n't exist in New York or
California."
He said Venice has a
culture all to itself that it
should promote, with a
historic airport and Cas-
persen as one of the
longest stretches of unde-
veloped beach on the
Florida coastline.
"You don't have to
grow," Joerger said, "but
the city does need to learn
how to market itself."
He suggested targeting
local areas to begin with,
attracting day trippers and
packaging overnight stays
with, for example, Au-,
dubon Society bird watch-
ing tours at Caspersen
Beach.
"How about (offering)
camping at Caspersen
Beach? That's a low-cost
way to introduce people to
Venice," Joerger said.
"Why not market to
people in Sarasota, Tampa
and St. Petersburg? Show
them a good time. I've
never had a bad meal in
Venice."
"It takes authentic
theming ... piggyback on
Caspersen Beach, and the
city's culture. Look at your
strengths. Don't look at
$20 million solutions.
Look at $100,000 or
$200,000 solutions ...
small businesses.
"If you are selling Ven-
ice ... it's the island. Make
sure what you're propos-
ing is realistic."
Zavodnyik said he re-
cently went on an elder-
hostel birding trip and
thought it was a great
opportunity for Venice "if
we can get it off the
ground."
Accommodations
Venice resident Don
O'Connell warned the task
force that some actions by
the city may thwart plans
to enhance eco-tourism.


"Venice always has
been a tourist town," he
said. "(But) until-you make
a commitment to (more
accommodations) you
won't have eco-tourism.
"The economy. killed
(Venice developer Mike)
Miller's (Tra Ponti) plan.
All they're (city council)
talking about in the comp
plan is limiting tourism
growth. We have a great
town with 36 parks and no
one is in them. The reason
is lack of quality accom-
modations."
Zoning and Planning
Director Tom Slaughter
acknowledged, "We have
lost some tourist resorts."
On the upside, he said, city
council has approved
plans for three new hotels,
although no one knows if
and when any will be built.
"That process takes a
couple of years," he said.
As for short-term rent-
als, Slaughter wasn't opti-
mistic council would
change course.
"We have a lot of resi-
dents who want to protect
their neighborhoods," he
said. "They want to protect
the integrity of single-fam-
ily districts."
The draft comp plan
under consideration by
city council would elimi-
nate rentals of less than 30
days in residential neigh-
borhoods.
"Who has 30 days to go
on a vacation?" Joerger
asked. He supports short-
term rentals.
"Maybe you should
start that conversation
with neighbors. Next, see if
there is the political will"
to support short-term
rentals, he told the task
force.
Regarding rowdy rent-
ers, Joerger said, "it only
takes two or three exam-
ples of people who come
down, act up and end up
spending the night in jail.
You will attract people
who can be civilized."
"You don't need 800
beds in hotels only. Use
the combination of weekly
rentals, bed and breakfasts
and quality hotels to keep
the scale down."
"You want them to
spend money. Otherwise,
you want them to stay
home."

Infrastructure projects inject confidence


BY TERRY O'CONNOR
STAFF WRITER

Injecting more tax dol-
lars into infrastructure
development will help
pump up the withered
Sarasota County economy,
according to Sarasota
County Commissioner
Joseph Barbetta.
Barbetta and PGT In-
dustries CEO Rod Hersh-
berger spoke Monday
before roughly 100 people
at the Sarasota County
Economic Development
Corp.'s investor update
breakfast at Laurel Oak
Country Club.
Barbetta outlined eight
projects worth $14.15 mil-
lion ready to leap from the
drawing board to con-
struction.
"A crisis is a terrible op-
portunity to waste," he
said, quoting Google
founder Eric Schmidt.
"We're trying to put bil-
lions on the street by
bonding!'
Barbetta said the penny
tax for infrastructure
would be tapped to help
fund more fast-track tar-
geted projects, which in-
clude more than $60 mil-
lion in transportation
work and more than $50
million in environmental

enhancements.
In the private sector,
PGT Industries ofVenice is
also trying to prime a slow
pump. PGT remains the
nation's leading manufac-
turer of hurricane-resis-
tant residential windows
and doors although rev-
enues declined $93 mil-
lion in 2007.
PGT windows and
doors grabbed the domi-
nant market share after
Hurricane Andrew devas-
tated South Florida in
1992. PGT was the first
manufacturer to offer alu-
minum impact-resistant
windows and doors ap-
proved by Miami-Dade
Building Product Control,
which enforces the strict-
est codes in the United
States for wind-borne de-
bris.


Then came the latest
financial whirlwind.
CEO Rod Hershberger,
who took over the compa-
ny in 2005 and piloted its
initial public offering in
2006, said this downturn
tested his relatively young
company. With housing
starts and permits off 85
percent from their 2005
peak, Hershberger said
there was no way to avoid
losing money or trimming
jobs.

FAST-TRACK
BORROWING
Sarasota County has
money primed to spend
on infrastructure projects
it is ready to fast track.
Planned borrowing
amounts include:

PGT still employs ap-
proximately 1,500 at a
485,000-square-foot man-


ufacturing headquarters
in Venice, a 390,000-
square-foot plant in Sal-
isbury, N.C., and a
230,000-square-foot plant
in Lexington, N.C., despite
laying off 400 workers over
the past two years.
PGT lost $80 million
through the first nine
months this year, which
more than ate up the $30
million it generated from
its IPO.
"It was like we dove off a
cliff in the third quarter of
2007," Hershberger said.
Instead of just waiting
for residential customers
to return and the housing
market to rebuild, howev-
er, Hershberger steered
PGT into the commercial
market.
"We leveraged what we
do in the residential world
into the commercial world
so we can continue to
grow," Hershberger said.
"We do things we wouldn't
do in a strong market."
He's bullish the turn-
around is near because
the falloff has been so
severe.
"There's not a lot left,"
he said. "It can't get a lot
worse."

Economic rescue plan includes tax breaks


BY D. GRADY HOUGH JR.
BUSINESS COLUMNIST


The highly publicized rescue plan
passed by Congress in October au-
thorized the purchase of troubled
,financial assets, increased the limit
Sfor FDIC insurance and included
other relief measures. But several tax
"extenders" added to the package
are also significant. Here's a brief
summary.
The alternative minimum tax
exemption amounts for 2008 are
increased to $69,950 for joint filers
and $46,200 for single filers. The new
law also allows individuals to claim
nonrefundable personal credits to
offset AMT liability.
The deduction for higher-edu-
cation expenses is extended through
2009. Under this provision, you may
deduct up to $4,000 of qualified


expenses paid during the year. The
deduction is reduced to $2,000 or
eliminated for higher-income tax-
payers.
An individual can elect to
deduct state and local sales tax
instead of claiming deductions for
state and local income tax. This pro-
vision is extended through 2009.
If you're age 701/2 or over, you
can transfer up to $100,000 tax free
from an IRA to a charity. The tax
exclusion is extended through 2009.
The recent housing law autho-
rized a one-time property tax
deduction for nonitemizers. The
maximum deduction is $1,000 for
joint filers and $500 for single filers.
This tax break is extended through
2009.
The business tax credit for qual-
ified research expenses has been
reinstated again and extended


through 2,009 with certain modifica-
tions.
Teachers and other educators
can deduct up to $250 of unreim-
bursed classroom expenses. This
deduction is extended through 2009.
Qualified restaurant and'lease-
hold improvements maybe Written
off over 15 years instead of the usual
39 years. The faster write-off is
extended through 2009.
Finally, the new law extends
through 2009 enhanced deductions
for businesses that donate food to
charity, as well as books and com-
puters to qualified schools.

Upscale consignments

on Miami Avenue


An upscale consign-
ment shop made its debut
last weekend when Full
Circle Fine Consignments
opened at 231 W Miami
Ave. in the former Bari
Jewelers location.
Owner Marcia Sevigny,
assisted by her husband,
Jeffrey, will accept and
offer clothing for women,
men and children. Cus-
tomers can shop in a
home setting, relaxing on
chairs.
"What goes around
comes around at Full
Circle, where we will be
recycling quality, newer,
well-kept clothing and
accessories," said Sevigny.
She believes the timing
is right for a consignment
store, with the greening of
the environment and the
poor economy affecting
both clients and cus-
tomers.
From Haddam Neck,
Conn., she was in real
estate for 20 years before
coming to Florida and
working for the city of
Punta Gorda. In 1999 they
acquired a 1950s-style
home on the Myakka
River. i .i;' .;--, ,

Challenge has begun
Recently when I inter-
viewed Barbara Saputo,
soon to be the president of
the Venice Area Board of
Realtors, she said, "Next
year is going to be a chal-
lenge."
How right she was.
Within a few weeks Cold-
well Banker closed her
office in SouthVenice near
Books-A-Million. The chal-
lenge had begun.
Saputo moved to Mi-
chael Saunders & Com-
pany, managing its Cape
Haze Peninsula office,
1200 South McCall Road,
Englewood.
"I'm looking forward to
the challenge of learning a
new market, getting to
know the 36 agents here
and helping buyers and
sellers achieve their goals,"
said Saputo.
The office serves Cape
Haze, Englewood, Man-
asota Beach, Boca Grande
and Port Charlotte. Call

Finding money for River Road project challenges task force


BY STEVEN J. SMITH
STAFF WRITER

Sometimes it all starts
with writing a letter.
That was the theme of
Friday's meeting of the
River Road Task Force,
saddled with the challenge
of raising both moriey and
awareness for the eleva-
tion, widening and repair
of the road that everybody
needs and nobody wants
to pay for.
"There is a national
transportation bill that
Slasts for seven years," said
,County Commission Chair
-Shannoni,. Staub, who
chairs the task force.
"That's coming up (for
renewal) starting next year.
Requests (for funds) have
to go in next March. Then
the transportation com-
mittee starts looking at it.
By June, the reauthoriza-


tion process begins."
Staub said that the reau-
thorization of funds to
River Road spurred by
letters of support coming
from chambers of com-
merce, engineering firms,
businesses and emergency
management groups -
could pour much-needed
capital into the project.
Costs have been esti-
mated at anywhere from
$130 million to $150 million
for the entire length of the
two-lane blacktop, which
runs some 12 miles from
Interstate 75 all the way
to Englewood. However,
Staub and North Port City
Commission ChairVanessa
Carusone urged their col-
leagues to focus for now on
the section from U.S. 41 to
1-75, since about 90 percent
of its design has already
been completed. About $90
million will be needed for


construction of that phase
- not counting the addi-
tional $20 million or so
needed for right-of-way
acquisition.
Staub reminded every-
one that a key supporter of
River Road has been U.S.
Rep. Vern Buchanan, who
sits on the House Trans-
portation and Infrastruc-
ture Committee.
Buchanan has said he
sees the road's importance
as both a vital evacuation
route from the Cape Haze
Peninsula to 1-75 and a
central artery in the grow-
ing South County area.
' "North Port is (the
county's) biggest city,"
Buchanan has said. "And
they're behind in their
infrastructure. That's why I
feel so passionate about
River Road."
Staub said an impor-
tant aspect of successfully

OUR VIEW



Sarasota doesn't need baseball that bad


There comes a point in any negoti-
ation when .one of the parties
may simply decide to get up and
walk away from the table.
Sarasota County commissioners did
that last week, essentially, this time with
the Baltimore Orioles. It was the right
thing to do
They left open a sliver of possibility
that talks could be revived, but made it
clear any deal for a spring training base-
ball facility in Sarasota would be on a far
smaller and cheaper scale. We agree.
All along, we have supported the ex-
ploration of a deal to keep Major League
Baseball in Sarasota, but the parameters
of the latest plan were getting out of
hand. The benefits simply did not offset
the costs.
The Cincinnati Reds were in negotia-
tions for the renovation of Ed Smith
Stadium last year, finally walking away
from a project with a price tag of rough-
ly $40 million when it became obvious a
supermajority of county commission-


ers wouldn't agree to it. According to
Sarasota Mayor Lou Ann Palmer, Cin-
cinnati said "enough is enough" and de-
cided to deal exclusively with Goodyear,
Ariz.
Talks earlier this year with the Boston
Red Sox involved a dual-ballpark deal
that would have cost roughly $70 mil-
lion. The Orioles negotiations were in
the Red Sox range, although it was high-
ly unlikely the team could ever deliver
Sox benefits.
To pay for a two stadiums, clubhous-
es and practice fields, Sarasota County
would have to use 1 cent of its tourist
development tax. That would likely
bring in $46 million. The state would
contribute a grant of $6.6 million, the
city of Sarasota would kick in $5.2 mil-
lion and local private businesses would
fund another $2 million. The team, we
were told, might might -contribute
.$5.2 million.
The bottom line was $65 million.
There were other costs involved with


relocating current public fields, though,
running anywhere from $3 million to $9
million.
Too much, considering the potential,
economic impact.
You could argue that the Red Sox
held more promise of return, since they
are among Major League Baseball's elite
sports "brands." The Orioles sit at the
bottom of any sports marketing list.
It's even fair to ask whether they'd
draw enough fans to fill a new stadium,
once the luster of a new ballparkwore off.
Attendance at the Orioles' spring training
home in Fort Lauderdale has dropped
from 92,546 in 2005 to 74,373 in 2008.
That's no surprise to those who fol-
low the game. Once a proud franchise
with loyal supporters, the Orioles have
seen consistently lousy teams and a
shrinking fan base under the ownership
of Peter Angelos in the past 15 years.
County Commissioner Joseph Barbetta
aptly drew the distinction between the
Red Sox and the Orioles: "One's the gold


standard and the other's the tin stan-
dard."
Major League tin is worth some-
thing, though.We like Barbetta's sugges-
tion to scale back the scope of the pro-
ject along the lines of the Charlotte
County model. Charlotte renovated
Charlotte Sports Park for $27.8 million
for the Tampa Bay Rays. A beautiful park
will open for the red-hot American
League champions next spring.
McKechnie Field in Bradenton was
renovated for the Pittsburgh Pirates in
2008 for $18 million. Brighthouse Net-
works Field in Clearwater was built for
the Philadelphia Phillies in 2004 for $34
million.
Locally, it may make sense to use
one-half cent of bed tax money for a
team at the bottom of the economic
spectrum, but not a full cent.
If the Orioles like Sarasota enough,
and if they wish to explore that kind of
deal, then it's worthwhile to keep talk-
ing. If not, close the door.

BOB VEDDER
PUBLISHER


This week marks my
30th year with Sun Coast
Media Group and the
Gondolier Sun. I came here
in, December 1978 as a
consultant to help Derek
Dunn-Rankin with prob-
lems with the production
of the paper. I had been
national production man-
ager for the Wall Street
Journal and knew some
things about putting out a
paper however, none as
small as the "Gondo."
The entire company
was situated in two-thirds
of what is now the printing
and binding plant. There
were about 15 employees;
three of those are still with
the company: Lang Ca-
passo, our manager in
Englewood, Susie Coons, a
great graphic artist, and
Darlene Willis, the brains
of the layout of our paper
who makes sure ad orders
are right.
Derek had the Gondo
being published two days
a week (on Thursday and
Monday; in 1979 it became
Thursday and Saturday)
with a free news shopper
called the Sun Coast
Times. He had just ex-
panded that to North Port
with the free Times. We
had two major advertisers,
Publix and Kmart.
Things changed dra-
matically. We made much
of the Englewood and
North Port circulation
paid. We bought a weekly
in Charlotte and not too
much later took that to two
days. We also bought a
weekly in DeSoto. In the
early '80s we added to our
original building and put
our accounting depart-
ment next to the Outlook
bar.
In 1984, we took our
first stab at publishing the
Gondo three days a week.
In late 1985, we opened
the three-story office
building we are now in, in
Venice.
Toward the end of the
'80s we went daily in
Charlotte, building a new
office and printing plant.
By then we had well more
than 100 employees. We
had a weekly in Sarasota,
also. That all changed with
the recession of 1991,
when the Gondolier (no
Sun then) went back to


milestone

two days and we closed in
Sarasota.
In the early '90s we
bought the Punta Gorda
Herald, giving us domi-
nance in Charlotte County,
which we have greatly
expanded or. We were
then up to 200 employees.
During the '90s we took
Englewood, North Port
and DeSoto daily.
In the late '90s we start-
ed Sunline, an Internet
service provider that was
very successful before oth-
ers got into it. We went
heavily into the Internet
and won national awards
for ourWeb sites.
In 2001 we started our
telephone company, Day-
Star, which originally was
on the footprint of the
newspapers but now goes
from Sarasota to Naples. It
has grown well, including
all the new technologies
providing low-cost busi-
ness service. We have five
towers in three counties.
In late 2006 we added
three papers in Polk Coun-
ty, and shortly thereafter a
paper in Highlands Coun-
ty, in Lake Placid. At that
time we had 550 employ-
ees.
We had increased the
number of people receiv-
ing our newspapers for 18
years straight until just this
September. That was a feat
unmatched in the indus-
try. The slowdown is one of
the effects of the weak
economy. Taking the Gon-
do back to two days a week
is another sign.
Technology has chang-
ed a lot. We used to put
together pages by pasting
strips of paper; now it is all
done electronically. We
had five units of a small
press in the beginning and
now have 36 units in two
printing plants, all of them
much bigger and faster.
We did not run color
when I started here and
now it is a staple through-
out our papers. We also
print a wide variety of
products, mostly monthly
and weekly publications
for people from Fort Myers
to Lakeland.
Our mission in each
location has been a com-
i mitment to our communi-
ties, and we have held to
that religiously. It has been
a wonderful experience.
There is a lot of satisfac-
tion in helping advertisers
and providing enjoyment
and knowledge to our
readers. We get great joy in
helping nonprofit organi-
zations and making things
better in our community.
We continue to look for-
ward to providing news
and advertising the best
ways possible to suit our

little until this condition is

recently (I'll keep the name to myself, but they knowwho they
are) with mytrade, mytitle, mycash- everything readyto pur-
chase a care had been working on andwaitingto arrive at the
dealership for aweekWhen Iwent in and gave them mylicense
and was ready to take it for a drive, a sales manager brought
someone up to look at it also. Before I even had achanceto sign
the dotted line, he said, "He's paying cash; we'll take his money"
As far as I know, its first-come, first-served. You know, we have
ethics. Someone should get a chance when they're there first I
guess people don't need to service their customers anymore
with trades and such; theyjust want that cash.


Special one. You asked
for ideas for economizing
this Christmas; this is my
idea: If your family in-
cludes a number of adults
who all exchange Christ-
mas gifts every year, draw
names and each person
buys a gift for one person
only.
New law. I'm calling
about the recurring, short-
sighted comments about


the fire department using
fire trucks to get their
lunch. It seems to me the
logical solution would be
to allow the fire depart-
ment, like every other
worker in the United
States, to have a lunch
hour. Of course, that
would require passing an
ordinance that would not
allow any fires, traffic acci-
dents or medical emer-
gencies between the hours
of 12 and 1 o'clock every
day.


America, the land of equality?


BY KAYLEE REAM
GUEST COLUMNIST

Have you ever been in a situation
where you feel like you have not
been treated equally?
The term "glass ceiling" means dis-
crimination, mostly against women.
Think about it: How many companies
are controlled by a woman? Not very
many, that's for sure.
Types of "glass ceiling" barriers
include different pay for men and
women doing the same work, sexual
or racial harassment in the work-
place and the lack of a family-friend-
ly work environment.
It is not fair that men are getting
treated better just because they are
men. Even women who have a bet-
ter education and are smarter aren't
going to get the recognition they de-
serve for it.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was
supposed to get rid of sexual dis-

crimination in hopes of allowing
women to rise in the working world.
Obviously, it didn't work.
Take a look at the government.
Have we ever had a woman as our
president? Our country today be-
lieves that our government can't be
controlled by a woman.
Hillary Clinton tried to break that
barrier. She used the term "glass ceil-
ing" in her concession speech in the
Democratic presidential campaign:
"And although we weren't able to
shatter that highest, hardest glass
ceiling this time, thanks to you, it's
got about 18 million cracks in it."
One of the major indicators of
inequality between males and
females is the wage gap. Women
make 75.3 cents on the dollar com-
pared to men, according to statistics
maintained by the United States
Census Bureau from 2003 in an
across-the-board comparison of
year-round, full-time workers.

Unfortunately, gender inequali-
ties are often embedded within the
social hierarchy, and this affects how
women and men are perceived in
leadership roles.
As a woman in today's society, I
feel that this "glass ceiling" is outra-
geous. I believe women should have
the same opportunities as men and
get the same respect. Women need
to speak out and defend themselves
or else this "glass ceiling" is never
going to get broken.
Our Constitution states that we
are all equal,, but in reality we are
not. Our world is filled with many
talented and smart women who are
never given a chance to show it. It's
time for a change, and time to prove
that men are not dominant over
women.

may not be aware
that the source of the pain
they are experiencing
actually originates from a
seemingly unrelated part of the
body. So-called "referred pain"
is a phenomenon that is
characterized by pain generated
in one part of the body and felt in
another, apparently unrelated area.
) For instance, nerve root pain in the
Smid-back can simulate coronary heart
disease. As with a heart attack, the
pain may radiate to the jaw or upper
left arm. Chiropractors know that the
nervous system can transmit its effect
over the entire body. By relieving an
obstruction to the flow of nerve energy
in the back, the chiropractor can
provide beneficial effects elsewhere in
the body.

P.S. One common example of
referred pain involves eating ice so
quickly that it causes "brain
freeze," a temporary headache due
to chilling of the vagus nerve.

MR. SHEEPSHEAD
COLUMNIST


The


'S'


is


not silent

Enough is enough.
I'm tired of correcting peo-
ple about the name of my fish.
If you want to call it a sheep-
head, then you should be in
Michigan, Ohio or any other of
the Midwest region states.
That's the area that the fresh-
water trash fish lives. It's a dif-
ferent fish. My sheepshead
don't deserve to be compared
to that impostor.
Even game wardens some-
times call it the wrong name.
About five years ago, local
fisherman Andy Schoener
called and informed me that a
fisherman from.Apollo Beach
wanted to fish for sheepies
with us. We set it up for 10 a.m.
at the North Jetty.
I got there about 9:15 a.m.
and caught three nice sheepies.
I usually don't keep my fish, but
I put them in my cooler. They
arrived a little later and Apollo
Beach Hank commented on
my "sheephead."
I immediately answered:
"They're not sheephead."
By this time Andy was walk-
ing away, afraid that Hank
might punch me out for my
comment. I inform Hank that
they are sheepshead and he
took it well.
Later on, I was fishing anoth-
er spot and looked over to see
two Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission offi-
cers talking with my friends. I
walked over and one officer
commented that they're nice
sheephead.
Andy and Hank walked
away, fearing that we would all
be arrested for my arrogance. I
corrected the officer and he
informed me that he knew the
difference but most fishermen
call them sheephead. Needless
to say, he took it well.
Well, fellow Sheepsssshead-
ites, the time has come to say
goodbye until next week.

Venice edges Charlotte

BYTRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


Three days of practice and no
preseason games is hardly the
kind of preparation required to
defeat your biggest district rival
in a season opener.
But the Venice High School
boys basketball team did just
that, downing Charlotte High
School 48-43 Tuesday night in
the Teepee. Three ofVenice's five
starters joined the team just this
week after advancing to the
Region 5A-3 semifinals in foot-
ball.
"Three of our starters we've
had for three days and every-
body else has been working for
four or five weeks. To try to blend
them all together and get them
all on the same page, I think that
alone they've done a really good
job," Venice head coach Steve
Cavallaro said. "They're really
good kids. They all get along and
they all respect each other."
The football boys, Justin
Grant, Trey Burton and Clay
Burton, combined for 17 points
and nine rebounds. Senior cap-
tain Kyle Jutras led Venice with
17 points as fellow senior starter
Anthony Hackett led the team
with seven rebounds. For a
group that hasn't had much time
to play together, they looked like
a cohesive team especially on
defense.
"The real credit for blending
us together is the leadership in
our two captains, which is Trey
Burton and Kyle Jutras. Right
now, I can't think of two better
captains to have," Cavallaro said.
"They do a really good job of
leading everybody else and
showing them to do the right
things. They've got everybody
bought into what we are doing
and that's huge."
Venice (1-0, 1-0 in 5A-12)
smothered the Tarpons (2-3,1-2)
in the first quarter, taking a 13-0
lead that proved to be just big
enough. Charlotte attempted
only three field goals in the
opening period. The Indians'
defense contested shots in the
second, holding the Tarpons to
just 4-of-14 shooting. Venice led
25-9 at the half.

Tuesday night's game against Charlotte High School.


Charlotte came back in the
third, outscoring Venice 20-11.
But Cavallaro didn't have much
to complain about.
"They just hit some shots," he
said. "I even thought once they
started hitting some baskets that
we-were doing a good job of con-
testing their shots."
Again Charlotte outscored
the Indians in the fourth 15-12,
but Venice held on for the win
thanks to an early lead and more
than a few trips to the line.
Venice hit 22 of 34 free-
throws, including 9-for-11
shooting by Jutras and 4-for-5 by
Stefano Cavallaro, compared to


Charlotte's Nick Goshay led the
team with 11 points, followed by
Alex Mut with 10. Both players
finished tied with Justin Gomez
for a team-high four rebounds.

Venice snaps streak vs. Manatee;


BYTRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR

It might not count for much as far as
District 5A-12 tournament seeding is con-
cerned, but the Venice High School girls soc-
cer team gained something equally valuable
Monday night.
The Lady Indians defeated Manatee High
School for the first time in more than two
years, picking up a 4-1 win at Joe Kinnan
Field in Bradenton.
"It was a good win," said Venice head
coach Sheldon Chamberlain. "They're a
good team and I'm sure we'll see them again
in districts."
When and if they do meet again, this
match won't count toward tournament
seeding. Manatee blanked Venice 2-0 earlier
this season and only the first match between
district opponents counts in the official dis-
trict record. Manatee is 5-0 in district play
and would clinch the top seed with a win

Darvalics wins Charity Truckers 200


BY TRIPP MILLER
SPORTS EDITOR


Venice driver Steve Darvalics
took the lead in the 150th lap of
Saturday's Charity Truckers 200
at Orlando Speed World. It was
gravy from there as he took
home first place and more than
$2,000 in prize money from the
200-lap Pro Trucks class race.
"It was really a good way to
cap off a great year," Darvalics
said.
The 22-year-old Venice High
School graduate, who just con-
cluded his first season in the
Pro Trucks class at Desoto
Super Speedway, finished ninth
in the qualifying race Friday
night. The top 10 drew for
placement in the feature race,
and Darvalics drew No. 2.


That's where he stayed until
making a push for the lead with
50 laps to go.
Darvalics got inside on then-
leader Travis Hanson, which
opened the door for teammate
Charlie Montgomery and Brent
Huber, both of Venice, to pass
and take second and third,
respectively. Hanson finished
11th.
All three Venice drivers will
take some time off to make the
necessary repairs to their
trucks following Saturday's
race. Between now and next
season, the team's owners are
looking for new sponsors. Call
co-owner Chris Bryson at 650-
4652 for information on spon-
sorship opportunities.

Girls win all three divisions in sailing series


BY JABBO GORDON
CORRESPONDENT
Carla Johnson captured the
Ernest Green Fleet championship
and Cara Patete grabbed the Red,
White and Blue crown while
Michelle Thomas won the
Portsmouth Division in theVenice
Youth Boating Association's Fall
Series, officials announced this
week.
In fact, girls took the top three
spots in the Green Fleet. Behind
Johnson's 11.75 points was
Samantha Wood, who placed sec-
ond with 21 markers. Lizzie Karras
was third with 32.
Lucas Galarza finished fourth
with a score of 37, and Sophie
Hollingworth was fifth with 39.
Stephan VerHulst came in sec-
ond to Patete's 10 points with 29
markers in the Red, White and
Blue Fleet. Alicia Muscato and


Garrett Lawlor both accumulated
36 points, but Muscato was
awarded third as the result of a
tiebreaker as determined by the
Racing Rules of Sailing. Lawlor
garnered fourth.
Bryan White had 13 points to
Thomas' 12 markers to place sec-
ond in the Portsmouth Division.
Chloe Dietrich sailed to third place
with 19.83 points.
The series started Aug. 16 and
ended Nov. 22. The Red, White and
Blue Fleet competed in 11 races
while the Green Fleet had nine
races. The Portsmouth Division
featured eight events.
All skippers were allowed to
throw out their worst scores,
which changed some of the overall
standings, and the procedure
caused all the scores to be much
closer. However, Patete sailed so
well during the series that she had
to throw out a first place.


Several VYBA sailors sail com-
petitively for either Pine View
School or Venice High School in
prep regattas which conflict with
local racing on some Saturdays.
However, officials gave "regatta
points" to those who attended the
high school regattas. These points
amount to an average of scores
accumulated when the sailor sails
with VYBA. This accounts for the
fractions of points included in
some scores.
VYBA's Winter Series begins
Saturday. It is scheduled to have 11
races and will end Feb. 21.
Nine local skippers attended
the annual Thanksgiving Regatta
at Tampa's Davis IslandYacht Club
Nov. 29-30. Thomas placed second
in the Laser 4.7 class and Johnson
finished fourth in the Green Fleet.
Many sailors manned two
sailboats in Saturday's Christmas
Boat Parade.

CITY NOTES


COMPILED BY
NEWS EDITOR GREG GILES

City warned not
to delay expansion
The Federal Aviation
Administration on Dec. 4 issued a
warning to the city of Venice not to
unnecessarily delay the building of
new hangars at the Venice Jet Center.
"The FAA agrees that the city of
Venice appears to be unnecessarily
delaying the expansion of the Venice
Jet Center," wrote Rebecca Henry, FAA
planning specialist.
"These delays created by the city
appear to be restricting aeronautical
access to the airport, which is incon-
sistent with federal grant assurances
and the surplus property deed restric-
tions. The FAA believes the airport
sponsor's primary concern in the
development of airport properties
should be meeting aeronautical
demand."
To avoid a full blown investiga-
tion, the FAA "strongly" advised the
city to include the Venice Jet
Center's request on its Jan. 13 city
council agenda, "and to allow the Jet
Centerto develop the proposed air-
craft storage areas."
Mayor Ed Martin said Tuesday the
matter has been handed over to out-
side counsel for further study. The city
is awaiting a report on, among other
things, the implications of declining
to approve the building of new
hangars. One section of the city's lease
agreement with the Venice Jet Center
calls for new hangars to be built, but
another section requires additional
city approval.
Martin also said consideration of
the jet center issue might also hinge
on a new airport traffic study it is
proposing in a draft master plan.
That's expected to take almost a year


to complete.
The jet center filed an
informal complaint with
the FAA on Sept. 2 citing
delays.
City, union approve
one-year contract
The local American
Federation of State,
County and Municipal
Employees chapter and
the city of Venice ratified
a new one-year contract
this week.
The new contract, rati-
fied by the union on
Monday and OK'd by city
council on Tuesday, is
retroactive to Oct. 1.
The agreement calls for
a 3-percent across-the-
board raise. In addition,
employees will receive a
second increase of 3.5 per-
cent (annual step increas-
es on the salary schedule),
bringing the typical annu-
al raise to',6.5 percent for
140 members of the
AFSCME Local 1718. The
city has a total of 295 full-
time-equivalent employ-
ees in four unions.
In addition, the parties
agreed to upgrade the
salary of seven positions.
The city also agreed to
increase annual bonuses
for a small group of
employees from $1,200 to
$1,300 in lieu of 3.5-per-
cent step increases for
those who are maxed out
on the salary schedule and
don't receive the automat-
ic step increases.


It's the first one-year
contract negotiated.
Interim City Manager
Nancy Woodley said
retroactive pay will be
included in December
paychecks for affected city
employees.
Fees reduced for
solar installations
Responding to a recom-
mendation by the city's
Environmental Task Force,
Venice 'unilaterally decid-
ed this week to reduce per-
mit fees for solar installa-
tions.
Building and Code
Enforcement Director
Hans Behrens made the
announcement in a Dec.
5 memo to the task force.
The task force recom-
mended the city waive
building permit fees asso-
ciated with the installa-
tion of solar energy sys-
tems, solar hot water and
space heating, and solar
air conditioning systems.
Behrens said that's not
allowable under state
statutes, but he did agree
to include alternative-
fuel water heaters under a
category that allows for a
combination permit and
fee.
It will bring down the
permit charges from the
current $441.08 to $127.11.
The permit covers
building, plumbing and
electrical work and plan
examinations during three
inspections.

Books encourage


.. children to be true


to themselves
BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR
Bobette Stanbridge has her daughter Tiffahy, 31, to thank for helping her resurrect
some old, charming characters to become a children's book author.
S" A native Californian Who attended the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles in the
Early 1970s, Stanbridge was hired in 1974 to create
the characters that are now in her children's books.
The characters were originally screened onto T-shirts, quilts, pillows, tote bags and other
items and sold in several large department stores, including Macy's.
"A long time later, my daughter saw one of the renderings I'd done," she said. "I had given
them all away as gifts and she saw one hanging in a home.
She told me I Had to bring the characters back."
Stanbridge also does energy healing and has always wanted to teach it. She thought chil-
dren would be the perfect students for her positive
teachings because they are open to new ideas:
|" b dgqe I "I wanted to teach them all about energy, appreciation for nature, how everything is alive
and how it is all connected," she said.
This year, Stanbridge introduced her first two
picture books, '"A Joyful Day!" and "The Magic Kite."
Meeka Mouse, Chirpy Bird, Sir Gus Grasshopper, Miss Annie Elephant, Smooch Pooch
and other similar characters leap off the pages to share lessons of gratitude, music, friend-
S ship, joy and hibernation (meditation) with children.
"I was inspired to write and illustrate children's books with life messages for young readers," she said.
The stories and illustrations focus on appreciating thq moment, dreaming big, the importance of expressing yourself;
and having balance in life, all in a fun and engaging manner appealing to young children.
Stanbridge said her books are best suited for children ages 4-11.
In the opening pages of her books, Stanbridge shares her reason for writing the books: "(To introduce) a new type ofpic-
ture book that has been created to engage children in conversations about important
subjects that are guides to successful lives."
In the fun department, bunkyisms "words that you will not find in the dictionary" appear in "The Magic Kite."
Stanbridge even provides a challenge for young bookworms.
"Katy the Kite ate an eight in order to blend her names. The deed was done all in fun.
Can you find where her name's not the same?"
This is followed with clues to find the unusual spelling of Katy the Kite's name in the book;

Illustrations
The illustrations in "A Joyful Day!" and "The Magic Kite" also are
\ being sold exclusively at'the Abbacino Galleria in Venice. The
gallery carries the books as well.

"I wanted to carry
Bobette's prints because I
like the illustrations," said
Chris Davis, co-owner of
Abbacino Galleria.
Davis said the two
women clicked right away.
"I have an advertising
degree and she does, too,"
Davis said. "She's good."
Stanbridge approached
Davis about a year ago,
and Davis said she found
the prints delightful and
unique.
"The prints are unusual
because there is meaning
rs behind the illustrations,"
Davis said.
Stanbridge's prints car-
ry positive messages such
as "Beauty is Everywhere,"
"Dance with the Wind,"
"Life is Magical," "You are
Magnificent" and more.
Between the two books,
there are some 57 positive
message illustrations.
"She took the time to
hand-embellish each print
and issue a certificate of
authenticity with a print
number for each print,"





Davis said.
Children's books
Stanbridge has long
been a fan of children's
books.
"Othello Bach was one
of my favorite authors,"
she said. "She wrote fun
books which you can't get
any longer with titles like
'Whoever Heard of a Fird?'
'and 'Lilly, Willy, and the
Mail-Order Witch.'"
When Stanbridge sent
her manuscripts and illus-
trations to three or four
children's book publishers
,and received the standard
rejection form letter, she
decided to take matters
into her own hands.
"I'm 60 and I don't have
time to wait on someone
to decide if they like them
or don't like them because
they may or may not fit
their criteria," she said.
So far she hasn't been
disappointed, with the
path she chose.
"Sales were really great
at the Venice Art Fair," she
said. "And the books are
selling great in Canada."

In November, she had a
book signing at The
Sanddollar Bookstore on
Miami Avenue in Venice
and at Mystic Sea in Eng-
lewood.
"We like to honor chil-
dren's books because so
many speak to adults,"
said.Lynn Kloss, Mystic
Sea owner. "We also honor
first-time authors."
Kloss said she had
nothing but praise for
Stanbridge and her mes-
sages to children about liv-
ing healthy, abundant
lives.
"If you want it to be a
joyful day, then the day
will be joyful," Kloss said.
"We would like to sched-
ule her for another book
signing and add the mini-
meditation seminar she
does for children and their
parents."
As for Stanbridge, she
said the books just flowed
out of her.
S"It (the message) is me.
It isn't something I have to
go study, create or find,"
she said. "Each one of us
goes through our life and

A Whatever you do, don't ask for
aces now if partner shows one ace,
you won't know what to do. Start a
cue-bidding sequence by bidding
four clubs. If partner bids four dia-
monds, you need to investigate fur-
ther by bidding four hearts and wait-
ing to hear what he has to say.

Q 3 East-West vulnerable, as South
you hold:
4Q6 AQJ10843 o 10 *K 10 9

In third seat after two passes, what is
your opening bid?
A According to the Rule of 2 and 3,
your hand rates to take seven tricks
and therefore, at this vulnerability,
merits an opening bid of four hearts.
That is a two-way action. If partner
has some useful cards, you could
make game. If not, your pre-empt
might keep the opponents out of a
makable game.

The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
14 Pass 1 'Pass
What do you bid now?

A No spade raise comes close to
doing justice to your prime-rich hold-
ing. A splinter bid in diamonds
would, but that is not recommended
with a singleton ace or king. That
leaves a fake reverse of two hearts.
That is forcing, and here it is quite
safe because you can always correct
to spades without raising the level of
the auction.

Q 5 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
49763 v873 oQJ82 *A8

Partner opens the bidding with one
no trump. What do you respond?

A Even if partner has a maximum
17 points, chances of making either
four spades (after using Stayman to
locate a possible 4-4 fit) or three no
trump are slight. So why risk getting
overboard by using an invitational
sequence? Pass.
Q 6 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
AQJ743 8 0 A9 *K 1095
The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
14 4v Pass Pass
What action do you take?

A It is close between four spades
and pass. Since most believe that
bridge is a bidders' game, we opt for
four spades, but would not criticize
those who elect to defend. A double
(for takeout, since partner has not yet
bid) is beyond the pale.

Patients
may not be aware
that the source of the pain
they are experiencing
actually orginiates from a
seemingly unrelated part of the
body. So-called "referred pain"
is a phenomenon that is
characterized by pain generated in
one part of the body and felt in
another, apparently unrelated area.
For instance, nerve root pain in the
Smid-back can simulate coronary heart
disease. As with a heart attack, the pain
mpay radiate to the jaw or upper left
arm. Chiropractors know that the
nervous system can transmit its effect
over the entire body. By relieving an
obstruction to the flow of nerve energy
in the back, the chiropractor can
provide beneficial effects elsewhere in
the body,

P.S. One common example of
referred pain involves eating ice so
quickly that it causes' "brain
freeze," a temporary headache due
to chilling of the vagus nerve.


SThe patient and any other person responsible for payment has a right to refuse to pay, cancel

discounted fee, or reduced fee service, examination, or treatment.
