Among the issues in dispute
at Venice Municipal Airport is
the number of flights in and
out.
A local aviation organiza-
tion recently raised the pros-
pect that some local pilots may
be inadvertently- or perhaps
intentionally helping skew
the numbers downward and
placing others in peril along
the way.
"This month we regretfully
acknowledge that some of our
pilots seem to have figured out

NEWS EDITOR

A joint investigation by the
Federal Communications Com-
mission and Federal Aviation
Administration apparently did-
n't discover
much about
complaints of
unauthorized
ground-to-air
radio trans-
missions over
Venice Mu-
nicipal Air-
port.
In Decem- Lang
ber local avia-
tor GregWoods sent a letter to
the FAA alleging Venice City
Council Member Sue Lang
sent ground-to-air radio mes-
sages telling the pilot not to fly
over her house. Woods said he
also heard a similar transmis-
sion in November 2008: "This
is Sue Lang. Please don't fly
over my house. Thank you."
He was told by another pilot
in January about a third inci-
dent over Venice airport.
Lang denied making the
transmissions.
"I have no radio. I occasion-
ally call the airport (to register
a complaint about noise) but I
have never called a pilot to say
... directly anything," Lang
said in December.
Airport records show that
Lang made 10 out of 91 com-
plaints filed with the airport
from February to mid-October
2008, the most by a single indi-
vidual.

Menace lurks in the medicine cabinet


BY DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER

Gloria Brosious, 71, no
longer needs her cholesterol
medicine, so she's trying to
donate hundreds of leftover
packets to Mote Marine.
The reason: The research
facility recently announced it
is conducting studies on
marine life using human cho-
lesterol drugs. The drugs have
a beneficial effect on sea tur-
tles and birds that have been
affected by red tide, helping
them to recover more quickly.
Mote would like to have the
unused drugs, but there are
procedures and policies in
place that must be take into
account before it can accept
them.
Brosious isn't alone in try-
ing to get rid of unwanted pre-
scription drugs responsibly,
but there are obstacles when it
comes to discarding unneed-
ed or unwanted prescription
drugs. Ironically, some are in
the form of government regu-
lations.
That disturbs prevention
specialists working to cut down
narcotics use among young-
sters, because medicine cabi-
nets are their leading source of
illegal prescription drugs.
Also vulnerable are the
elderly and the environment.
Antibiotics and birth control
medicine have shown up in
drinking water and in sharks,
according to recent studies.
The problem is especially
acute in Southwest Florida.
Sarasota County led Florida
in 2007 for accidental over-
doses among the elderly. Fig-
ures for 2008, still being ana-
lyzed, aren't looking good,
said Curt Lavarello, executive
director of the Sarasota Co-
alition on Substance Abuse.
The problem: Two or more
doctors may prescribe similar
or identical medicines for dif-
ferent ailments in the same
patient. Florida is one of only
a few states without a pre-
scription-tracking database,
so there's no way for doctors
to prevent duplication of
medication, Lavarello said.
Bills now working their way
through the state Legislature
will result in the establish-
ment of a tracking database, if
they pass.
The county faces "a very
serious epidemic of pharma-
ceutical overdoses," he said.
Kids at risk too
Easy access puts young
people at greater risk. Some
teens hold pill-popping par-
ties, engaging in risky behav-


HOW TO DISPOSE
OF UNUSED
MEDICINE
Best: Hazardous waste
incineration.
Second best: Municipal
waste-to-energy facility -
as long as the facility has
an operating permit that
allows for waste pharma-
ceuticals.
Third best: Class-one solid
waste landfill as long as
the facility has an operating
permit that allows for waste
pharmaceuticals.

ior using drugs filched from
mom and dad, or grandma's
medicine cabinet.
"They're called 'pharm par-
ties,' said Theresa Skinner, a
drug abuse prevention special-
ist. "They bring collected drugs,
put them in a basket and every-
one takes a handful, swigging it
down with alcohol."
National drug abuse pre-
vention specialist Marc Fom-
by recently talked to teens and
parents at a series of area town
hall meetings.
"Pills that speed up the
heart rate and others that slow
down the heart rate can make
you sit down in a chair, go to
sleep and forget to breathe,"
he said.
He urges parents to be
aware of what's in their medi-
cine cabinets, to monitor their
children's access to pills, and
to know exactly how many
pills should be in a container.
Disposal problems
The proper disposal of ex-
pired and unused pharma-
ceuticals is complicated.
Stores such as Publix and
CVS work with vendors,
sometimes known as reverse
distributors, that handle ex-
pired and returned medicines.
Those companies either
incinerate the unused medi-
cines or return them to manu-
facturers for a rebate.
But spokespeople at Publix
and CVS said neither compa-
ny is set up to handle full-
scale pharmaceutical returns
by the general public.
"If customers happen to
bring us expired meds, we will
continue to accept them," said
Shannon Patten, a spokes-
person for Publix. 'As far as
making a large announce-
ment, we're not ready for it.
We're not set up for it."
Ditto for CVS, which does
not accept consumer returns,
according to Mike DeAngelis,
a CVS spokesperson.


Part of U.S. 41 to be repaved


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
AND ROGER BUTTON
CORRESPONDENTS

If you've been living in
Osprey since 2004, you have to
wonder what is about to hap-
pen at Blackburn Point Road
and U.S. 41, once known as
"Killer Korner."
Florida's transportation agen-
cy announced Wednesday that
it will begin a 135-day project
on April 6 to resurface 5 miles
of the state-owned highway
from Palm Avenue in Nokomis
to Marcia Street in Osprey.
The $4.3 million project will
include a new traffic signal at
the Blackburn Point/41 inter-
section.
From 2004 through 2007,
residents e-mailed and tele-


BRIDGE WORK
The northbound right lane of
the Hatchett Creek Bridge
will be closed each night
from Tuesday, April 7,
through Thursday, April 9,
from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. for
repairs to the drawbridge
superstructure and counter-
weights. Work is being done
during the nighttime hours,
and the operation will be ter-
minated if traffic backs up.

Rather than discard unneeded but expensive drugs, Gloria Brosious
wants to donate some contents of her medicine cabinet to science,
but safely disposing of unused meds isn't always easy.

TO PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT, INSTEAD
OF FLUSHING UNUSED MEDICINE:
* Keep drugs in their original container.
* Black out your name, prescription number and other identi-
fying personal details on the label.
* Add water or soda to pills to start dissolving them.
* Add cat litter or dirt to liquid medicine.
* Secure the lid with duct tape.
* Put the bottle in an opaque container such as a laundry
detergent bottle.
* Tape that container closed.
* Hide the container in the trash. Do not put it in a recycle
bin.

"No pharmacy would be
able to handle a regular influx
of people trying to return
medicine," he said. "It's a very
controlled environment. You
have to have law enforcement
there."
Drugs aren't 'green'
As harmful as prescription
drugs can be to the elderly
and kids, they also can hurt
wildlife when they make their
way into the water supply.
Nine out of 10 bull sharks in
a 2006 study tested positive
for the active ingredient in the
antidepressant Zoloft. Con-
centration levels were ex-


tremely low, but antidepres-
sants such as Prozac and Zo-
loft were shown to trigger pre-
mature spawning in zebra
mussels in other studies.
Brosious, meanwhile, is
still waiting to see if Mote can
take her unused drugs.
In the past, people have
donated medicine to Mote,
but regulations have tight-
ened, said Deborah Fauquier,
a Mote researcher and veteri-
narian.
"Usually, we get (medica-
tions) from doctors' offices
and hospitals," Fauquier said.
"I just don't know if it's legal."

County not under newest watering limits


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY


New, tougher watering restrictions
enacted by the Southwest Florida
Water Management District at its
March 31 meeting do not apply to
Sarasota County.
According to Utilities Operations
Manager Tony Gipe, the new Phase IV
watering restrictions are for Hills-
borough, Pasco and Pinellas counties
in Tampa Bay. Sarasota County is not
included in this area and continues
under Phase III restrictions.


SUN FILE PHOTO
Complete watering restrictions for
Sarasota County are available at


www.scgov.net.
To report a suspected watering vio-
lation, call Sarasota County Utilities at
861-6790, option 3, or 861-5000.
Reports may be faxed to 861-0603 or
e-mailed to utilitybill@scgov.net.
Gipe said that as of Friday, March
27, Sarasota County had issued 133
citations for watering violations. Per
the Modified Phase III Water Shortage
Declaration issued in February, no
warnings will occur before a citation
is issued, and each citation now calls
for a minimum fine of $100.


Trail cycling tips

BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER

The Venice area has the advantage of
having a wonderful hard-surface trail sys-
tem for bicycle riding. These trails include
the Venetian Waterway Park and the
Legacy Trail.
Although these trails provide a safe
outlet from riding on the streets, there are
certain safety measures cyclists should
follow:
Be courteous trail users may not be
aware of what side to walk on or when to
yield. Be understanding and patient.
Ride predictably ride at a steady,
safe speed. Always look back before pass-
ing or turning, and use hand signals.
Passing trail users should stay to
the right except to pass. You will usually
pass on the left except when there is not
enough room; then, cautiously pass on
the right. When passing, loudly say "on
your left" or "on your right." A bell may
also be used to alert the person being
passed.
Yielding cyclists should always
yield to pedestrians. If there are no signs
at crossings, yield to the person who
reaches the intersection first. Observe and
obey trail signs.
We are privileged to have these com-
munity assets. Abiding by a few rules and
using common sense, we can all enjoy a
safe biking experience.
Ride safe, ride smart.

Postal center losing 59 positions


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER


The U.S. Postal Service
announced Tuesday that it will
shift originating mail process-
ing and distribution opera-
tions from both the Manasota
and Lakeland processing and
distribution centers to the
larger Tampa postal facility
beginning this fall.
Under the consolidation,
outgoing mail will be shipped
to Tampa before being distrib-
uted in Manatee, Sarasota and
DeSoto counties.
The moves will affect a total
of 98 positions, 59 at the
Manasota center at 850
Tallevast Road, Sarasota, and
39 positions at Lakeland. The
move from Manasota is
expected to begin Oct. 1 and
be completed byApril 1, 2010.
The Manasota/Tampa pro-
cessing and distribution cen-
ters consolidation will see a
net job loss of 34 positions, as
25 positions will be created in
Tampa. Lakeland will see a net
loss of 31 positions, with eight
positions created in Tampa.
Jim DeMauro, president of
Local 7136 of postal employees,
said Tuesday that those affect-
ed by the consolidation will not
automatically be transferred to
Tampa. The current waiting list
in Tampa will absorb those new
positions, he said.
According to postal officials,
all reassignments will be made
in accordance with collective
bargaining agreements.
However, DeMauro said,
those reassignments could be


100 miles to 150 miles away
from the Manasota center.
There is no limit as to how far
away reassignments could be
located; a move to another
state to maintain employment
is a possibility, DeMauro said.
"In this climate," he said,
"there are very few open posi-
tions."
Impact on service
Postal officials said local ser-
vice, including North Port, Ven-
ice and Englewood, will not be
affected by the consolidation.
"I am confident the transi-
tion will be smooth and
transparent to our customers
because of our excellent
employees in this postal dis-
trict," said David Patterson,
Suncoast District manager.
The Manasota announce-
ment drew a swift response
from U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan,
whose district takes in the cen-
ter. Restating his opposition to
the consolidation, Buchanan
said in a statement, "I also
have yet to see any data to sup-
port the claim that the consol-
idation would save money and
improve service. It defies com-
mon sense."
DeMauro said his union
will continue to fight the plan
and will keep in contact with
the offices of Buchanan and
U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson. He said
his organization will push for
an independent review of the
data to make sure it's accurate.
In a study summary issued
Jan. 28, the Postal Service said
the consolidation would save
about $2.9 million annually.

Group to solicit more jail sites


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER


The selection process for a
new jail in Sarasota County
took a step forward Wednesday
when members of the
Criminal Justice Commission's
Community Partners Work
Group approved a site submit-
tal request going out to county
real estate brokers and agreed
to an accelerated meeting
schedule for evaluating poten-
tial sites.
Currently, the work group is
addressing five areas of interest
as potential sites, including
two in North Port. The first area
(labeled Area 5 in group docu-
ments) is off Toledo Blade
Boulevard and north of
Interstate 75. The second, Area
4, is located east of River Road.
The other areas of interest
are all located in North County
- Fruitville Road in the area of
High Hat Ranch, Clark Road
east of 1-75 and the county
landfill south of Clark Road.
The five areas are only pre-
liminary sites, according to
Wayne Applebee, county crim-
inal justice policy coordinator.
They were identified by county
staffers who had applied then-
tentative criteria across the
county.
The detention center would
house 300 beds and include a
central intake center. The pre-
liminary cost for construction
is estimated at $44 million.

Laurel Park Community
Center will be included in the
five minimum requirements.
The requirement requiring a
parcel of 30 developable acres
will include clarifying language
that says the parcel doesn't
have to be one parcel, one
owner.
Jeremiah Greer, of the coun-
ty's property management and
leasing department, said the
parcel can be "an assemblage
of contiguous parcels" with
owners who are willing sellers.
More criteria
Other site criteria included
being located within Sarasota
County; being more than one-
half-mile from any type of
school; being outside of storm
evacuation zones A and B; and
being outside of environmen-
tally sensitive and preservation
lands.
Greer said the request will
go out no later than Monday.
The deadline for submittals is
April 27.
Steve Kirk, principal plan-
ner with planning and devel-
opment services, said he could
not estimate the number of


3.25 APY*

submittals the county will
receive.
"Three years ago, it was a
totally different market," he
said. Now, "we're looking for
raw land. Meeting the criteria
is easier; it's less complicated."
Members of the work group
settled on a 9:30 a.m. meeting
April 22 at the Laurel Park cen-
ter. From that point on, the
work group plans to meet
every other week at the same
time and place to work on the
site evaluation form.
April 22, the group will
review the Fruitville Road site
as an exercise in using the eval-
uation form. The form has six
weighted criteria: site size
(weight factor 3 points), loca-
tion (4 points), access (4
points), ownership/develop-
ment/construction costs (5
points), operational costs (3
points) and environmental
impact (5 points).
The work group is expected
to evaluate and rank potential
jail sites by late summer to
send to the Criminal Justice
Commission.

telephoned the county
sheriff's office to get re-
lief.
"We asked everyone in
authority we could think
of to find a solution be-
fore there was a serious
accident," longtime Os-
prey residents John and
Mary Ann Perry recalled.
They had hoped for
turn signals to allow
vehicles on Blackburn


Point Road moving east
to allow a left north onto
the highway, and those
on the road moving west
to turn left to go south.
Then, on April 26,
2005, a dramatic three-
way collision at the inter-
section sent two persons
to a hospital and severely
damaged all three vehi-
cles. Two were on 41,
moving north and south.
The third was on Black-
burn, moving east, and


about to take a left to go
north.
County engineers re-
turned several times to
the Osprey Revitalization
Committee to describe
their plans. But they
explained that none
could go forward without
permission of the state
Department of Transpor-
tation, which manages
U.S. 41.
"We wonder what
they can do now that


they didn't do years ago,"
the Perrys said Wednes-
day.
What's coming
During the first week,
Tampa-based contractor
APAC will install silt
fences and erosion con-
trol along the entire 5-
mile corridor. All of this
work will be done during
daytime hours and will
not require lane closures
in either direction.

danger," said Nick Carlucci, president of Venice
Aviation Society Inc.
He believes a recent spike in midfield departures at
the airport could be pilots trying to avoid cameras
that track takeoffs and landings. The cameras were
placed at the beginning, midpoint and end of both
runways by the city's new airport consultant, DY
Consultants.
DY is charged with coming up with a new airport
master plan and airport layout plan. Both are
required by the Federal Aviation Administration. The
master plan included an updated operations count
and noise study.
Carlucci said pilots have been seen traveling across
the grass to access the runways. Others taxi out on a
closed runway to access the main two runways mid-
field.
"The pilots then back-taxi on that runway, stop
short of the cameras, turn 180 degrees, then depart
midfield and become airborne before the center
camera can record the operation," Carlucci said.
"These actions are just plain dangerous.
"On March 21 a pilot following this procedure
departed directly through a pattern of landing traffic.
(It) looked like a covey of quail scattering."
"Pilots have been forced to abort landings as these
pilots back-taxi. Others have been surprised at seeing
airplanes all of a sudden taxi onto the runway in front
of them. Sometimes a radio call is made (warning of
the midfield takeoff). Sometimes not."
He recalled a tragedy that left two dead at Sarasota-
Bradenton International Airport in 2000 when a
Cessna 152 taxied onto a runway midfield and was
stuck by another plane taking off.
"And that happened under the supervision of a
tower," he said.
The biggest concern is that midfield departures
could confuse a student pilot or make a "fast mover"
abort, he said.


"It's not prudent at a nontowered field," he said.
Eyewitness
Airport Manager Fred Watts said he has also wit-
nessed the midfield departures and received com-
plaints from other pilots, but he hasn't been able to
catch up with any of those pilots departing midfield.
While midfield departures are technically not a
banned practice, recently the airport posted signs
reminding pilots to avoid them.
"We're monitoring the situation," Watts said.
Not only is there a safety concern, he said, it could
affect the operations count being conducted by DY
Consultants. It also leaves a louder noise signature, he
said.
"To add to this unfortunate situation, the pilots
doing this are based at VNC," Carlucci said.
Another pilot, who asked not to be identified, said
it was likely the action of a group of pilots at the air-
port who want to limit access to very small single- or
twin-engine aircraft.
Why do pilots perform midfield departures?
"Lower the traffic count. ... 'Nobody tells me what
to do.' ... 'I have always done midfield departures,' "
are just some of the reasons, Carlucci said.
The traffic count (the number of takeoffs and land-
ings, or "operations") has been a major source of con-
troversy at the airport. Mayor Ed Martin, Council
Member Sue Lang and others on city council contend
the previous airport consultant artificially inflated the
numbers, leading to an airport code designation of
"C-II," which indicates the airport can handle small
jets. That's tantamount to an invitation for them to
use the airport, say activists.
A new count, they say, would show fewer traffic
operations and support a "B-II" airport code, which
would in turn attract less jet traffic and thus less noise.

Lane closures will be-
gin in the southbound
lanes the following week,
on April 13, along with
the installation of railings
and other improvements
to the existing bridges
spanning North Creek
and Catfish Creek.
It is estimated the
work will take 135 days
with completion in mid-
August.
"We are excited to be
getting this project under
way and expect to carry it
out with minimal incon-
venience to the motoring
public as well as resi-
dents and businesses
along this important
highway corridor," said
Stan Cann, FDOT District
One secretary.
Lane closures for


milling and paving will
be restricted to the late
evening and early morn-
ing hours. Daytime and
evening lane closures for
concrete railing work
northbound at the North
Creek Bridge and south-
bound at the Catfish Creek
Bridge are expected.
The state agency has
also announced the
awarding of a contract
for work expected to start
next month on the Ven-
ice Bypass. That project
will also involve resurfac-
ing, from Bird Bay to
Center Road.
Four new traffic sig-
nals will be installed, at
Bird Bay, Venice Avenue,
Center Road and oppo-
site a shopping mall
south of Center.

County gets grant to help sea turtles


BY DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER

The turtles that nested here
last year are back at sea, travel-
ing, foraging and preparing to
deliver the next generation of
loggerhead eggs to area beach-
es in May.
Sarasota County hopes to
protect yet-to-be-born hatch-
lings by adding more coastal
light fixtures and beefing up
educational materials to
remind residents and guests
that turtles need our help.
A $13,000 grant from the
Sea Turtle Grants Program will
be used to help protect hatch-
lings from the disorienting
effect of artificial lights. This is
the fifth year Sarasota County
received an award, funded
through state sales of sea turtle


license plates.
Upon hatching, turtles
sometimes become disorient-
ed by multiple sources of light
and may end up in the street
instead of the Gulf.
"The cumulative glow of
manmade light is the leading
cause of sea turtle deaths in
Florida," said Keri Nelson,
environmental specialist with
Sarasota County.
The grant will provide for
4,000 static cling decals that
can be mounted on windows
and doors, reminding resi-
dents to close the blinds.
Posters are available to resi-
dential properties for place-
ment in common areas.
The material reads: "Let the
night provide the light. Pre-
serve the night, protect the tur-
tle."


"The materials that are made available are
directly relevant. They're talking about the
needs of the turtles that visit our beaches
annually. We can make ourselves and turtles
safe at the same time. They're not mutually
exclusive."
Coastal Wildlife Club President Wilma Katz


Decals and posters are
available free by calling 861-
5000 and asking for the Sea
Turtle Protection Program, or
by visiting cccturtle.org.
Wilma Katz saw the grant
money at work when she
served as a volunteer monitor-
ing sea turtle nests on area
beaches. She is vice president
of the Coastal Wildlife Club.


"The materials that are
made available are directly rel-
evant," Katz said. "They're talk-
ing about the needs of the tur-
tles that visit our beaches
annually. We can make our-
selves and turtles safe at the
same time. They're not mutu-
ally exclusive."
Sarasota County has a
marine-turtle protection code


and enforces lighting of coastal
properties with night-time
inspections during nesting
season from May to Novem-
ber.
Enforcement usually con-
sists of warning letters.
"People correct the lighting
right away," Nelson said.
Fines associated with viola-
tions are up to $1,000 a day for
the first violation and $5,000
per day for a repeat offense.
But in her four years with
the county, Nelson said she
hasn't seen a fine imposed.
"Educating works a lot bet-
ter for the whole community,"
she said. "You get a lot more
support that way too and that's
our goal."

RADIO from Page 1A


Woods said the transmis-
sion could have been a hoax,
albeit a dangerous one. He
called it an irresponsible act
that could cause an accident.
"For a critical radio trans-
mission to be blocked at the
wrong moment by an irate res-
ident ... broadcasting on a
handheld transceiver railing at
airplanes passing overhead, is


a serious threat to safety and
must be addressed immedi-
ately," Woods wrote in his letter
to the FAA.
Transmissions ceased
A Washington, D.C.-based
spokesman said the FCC's En-
forcement Bureau did in-
vestigate the complaint in con-
sultation with the FAA. The


FCC was unable to determine
the source of the transmis-
sions.
"After investigating the inci-
dent, it is our understanding
the transmissions on the avia-
tion frequencies have ceased,"
said the spokesman, reading
from a prepared statement.
"If we receive any new infor-
mation or complaints regard-


ing transmissions of this na-
ture in the future, we will again
immediately investigate the
matter and take appropriate
action."
The FCC typically deploys
agents with monitoring equip-
ment to track down errant
transmissions, confident they
can find any interference as it
occurs, but only if it's in the


process of being transmitted.
The FAA records radio
transmissions, but only at larg-
er, towered airports. The FAA
leaves it up to general aviation
airports' fixed base operators
to determine whether they
record transmissions. The
Venice Jet Center, Venice's FBO,
does not.

CITY NOTES


COMPILED BY NEWS EDITOR GREG GILES
Circus bridge traffic advisory
Repair work will take place on the Circus Bridge
(South Bridge) in Venice, Sunday, April 5; Monday,
April 6; and Tuesday, April 7; from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
each night. Drivers should use the Venice Avenue
Bridge during this time. The work is being done by
Florida Department of Transportation.
Local stimulus projects funded
Venice can expect $445,000 for intersection
improvements at the Venice Avenue-Harbor Drive
intersection and another $816,068 for the resurfacing
of Venice Avenue from Ramsey to Jacaranda boule-
vards.
The Florida Department of Transportation official-
ly named those and other state projects Thursday that
could receive federal stimulus dollars.
FDOT's recommended list must be approved by
the Florida Legislative Budget Commission and then
sent to the Federal Highway Administration for its
approval. According to FDOT officials, they received
more than $8 billion in requests.
FDOT District 1 which includes Sarasota,
Charlotte, DeSoto and Hardee counties would
receive a total of $404 million, including more than
$53 million for resurfacing, intersection improve-
ments and similar projects. Another $20 million was
identified for public transit grants.
Sarasota County also received funding for various
road projects in North County, totaling more than
$3.9 million. The city of Sarasota received more than
$1 million for drainage improvements along Siesta
Key Drive.
Sarasota County received $300,000 for bus shelters.
Beach access gift accepted
The city of Venice recently accepted the gift of an
additional pedestrian access point to Venice Beach.
Ownership of a strip with a small sidewalk was
turned over to the city by Paul G. Hamilton and PDH
LLC on March 10.
The sidewalk, which is not ADA accessible, is on
the west side of Tarpon Center Drive between two
condominium buildings. It provides another access
for emergency services and is available for public use.
Those needing ADA amenities should use beach
accesses to the north or south.
City reimbursed for Legacy Park
This week city officials in Venice breathed a collec-
tive sigh of relief, having received $3,684,690.50 from
the state for its share of the purchase price of Legacy
Park.
City officials grew concerned months ago when
lawmakers decided to tap the Florida Conservation
Trust and other conservation trusts to help plug holes
in the state budget. The move left cities like Venice,
which contracted with the trust to purchase the prop-
erty, wondering if they'd be reimbursed after having
fronted the entire purchase cost. Gov. Charlie Crist
vetoed a bill siphoning the funds off to pay for state
government.
The 10-acre park will be developed behind the
Historic Venice Train Depot.
Comp plan gets a break
City officials have decided to give their review of
the comprehensive plan a rest for a month and give
staff time to complete its meetings with stakeholders
on numerous issues like rebuilds, vesting rights, and
whether to allow exceptions through "conditional
use" permits.
Canceled are the remaining final workshops in
April. City Manager Isaac Turner will instead take city
council through a strategic planning process while
staff and consultants complete directives. Comp plan

Heard first reading of ordinance 2009-02, extend-
ing the city's inclusion in the Sarasota County Emerg-
ency Medical Services municipal service taxing unit.
Accepted the recommendation of the special
magistrate to proceed with implementing a compro-
mise for the Village at Venice rezone application
changing the zoning designation to Planned Unit De-
velopment district while raising density and lowering
height with the added stipulation of a color palette.
Reached consensus to transcribe minutes of the

ue in reverse chronological order, with workshop

ment for a community block development grant
between Venice and Sarasota.

OUR VIEW



Unfortunately, it's time to off the lizards


Think of them as something out
of "The Invasion of the Body
Snatchers."
Creatures from the Black Lagoon.
Mini-Godzillas.
There's a science-fiction quality
about black spiny-tailed iguanas, but
they propagate and spread strictly
according to scientific fact. They
aren't "natural" to Southwest Florida;
they didn't start out here, species-
wise. They were imported, released
into the wild and, boy, do they like it
here. And, boy, can they wreck havoc
with the natural habitat.
Just ask the residents of Gasparilla
Island, who have been trying for years
to slow the tendency of iguanas to go
forth and multiply quickly in our
warm, welcoming environment.
Those who have dealt with iguanas
on the island will tell you, this can be-


come a big problem quickly. Science
facts:
Female iguanas may lay up to 80
eggs at a time, three times during the
breeding season, according to biolo-
gist Jerry Jackson of Florida Gulf Coast
University in Fort Myers. That can
mean a lot more iguanas in a little
time.
Iguanas have natural predators
and diseases in their native Mexico,
but not here. That means they have
few natural checks and balances.
Iguanas feed mostly on foliage,
flowers and fruit, but may also feed on
lizards and other small animals, nest-
ing birds and eggs, nesting sea turtle
eggs. That means they destroy the na-
tive species.
They damage plants and shrubs,
and dig burrows that harm seawalls
and sidewalks.


With all this in mind, Charlotte
County joined Lee County two years
years ago in an effort to eradicate the
ballooning iguana population on the 7-
mile-long Gasparilla Island, split
between two counties. It takes time and
money Charlotte County has spent
more than $110,000 over two years, and
Lee County spends $120,000 annually
on iguana removal. But it's worth it to
the residents and anyone else who val-
ues native habitat and wildlife.
"The reptiles operate in opposition
of conservation efforts," Amy Meese,
Sarasota County's natural resources
general manager, told the County
Commission recently.
And they are on the march north.
Iguanas have been spotted on
Cape Haze, at Lemon Bay Park in
Englewood, Shamrock Park in South
Venice and other points north.


Aware that the biological rule of
thumb is, "two today, many more next
year," Sarasota County has begun to
consider its own homeland defense.
The county commission will hear this
month from New College naturalist
Meg Lowman, who will outline this and
other scientific issues facing the region.
Based on the Gasparilla experi-
ence, it will be wise to meet a growing
problem with dispatch, so to speak. A
dollar spent today will mean many
more saved in the future.
Until a more robust program is
developed, county environmental
officials are asking anyone who spots
an iguana in the wild to contact the
county's call center, 861-5000, and ask
for Chance Steed in the natural
resources office.
No doubt a simple phone call today
can help ward off future problems.


Vedder's views


are out of whack


BY RITA KUTIE
GUEST COLUMNIST

I found Gondolier Sun
Publisher Bob Vedder's
column in the March 25
issue unreasonably nega-
tive in tone, biased and
factually inaccurate. More
important, it is a disser-
vice to those residents in
our community who rely
on the Gondolier Sun for
accurate and useful in-
formation about Venice
city government.
The column impugns
the reputations of three
current Venice city coun-
cil members who have
been in office for about
15 months and one
council member who has
served less than five
months. The Sharky's
lease and short-term
rental issues critiqued are
the result of council deci-
sions made prior to the
November 2007 city
council elections. Those
decisions of previous
councils were legally
challenged, and current
council members have
been required to resolve
them in the best interests
of the city.
Yes, the city has in-
curred significant unan-
ticipated legal expense
related to them. The col-
umn, however, criticizes
only the fact that legal
expenses occurred no
facts are presented to
support the inference
that the sitting council's
actions and the resultant
expenses were unreason-
able or ill-advised.
The play on the word
"stimulus" and refer-
ences to lawyers is tacky
at best. The writer chides
council for not following
the city attorney's advice
in one instance; in anoth-
er he chides council for
following it.
Yes, Mr. Anderson's
billable hours for service
in recent months seem
excessive. Citizens should
be concerned about the
quality and usefulness of
his services, not only
their cost. We rely on the
Gondolier Sun as well as
city council and its entire
staff of professional ex-
perts for accurate and
substantive information
to form our points of
view.
In the possibly frivo-
lous Sunshine Law viola-
tion case, council did in
fact follow the city attor-
ney's advice and seek an
out-of court solution. To
do so, they put at risk
their personal reputa-
tions for integrity to save
the city from an expen-
sive, possibly long and


further-delayed court
trial.
If I heard him correctly
at the council meeting,
attorney Anderson stated
that the plaintiff's first set-
tlement offer was about
$200,000; he implied that
council's now agreeing to
a negotiated settlement
would reduce this
amount significantly.
Those negotiations
have not been complet-
ed, but I trust that coun-
cil will settle only if it is in
the best interests of the
city.
With respect to the
proposed hangars at the
airport and Nadel issues,
the writer concludes by
labeling current council
members and concerned
citizens who want the
airport to remain gener-
ally within its current
confines and current size
in terms of traffic as the
"anti-airport" group. The
negative terminology is
unwarranted.
Legitimate questions
have been raised, and are
yet unresolved, as to
whether a change to the
current FAA-approvedVen-
ice Airport Layout Plan
can or should be revised
merely by a "penciled-in"
change.
The court-appointed
receiver recently testified
that the jet center was
purchased with illegal
funds; he does not intend
to build hangars and has
no funds available to
build hangars. However,
he wants the application
to build hangars granted
by council to increase the
airport's future sale value.
Council has time to
study the correct legal
decision. Perhaps the city
through its council and
staff should evaluate the
merits of being a bidder
when and if the receiver
places it on the market.
Hangars and the jet
center receivership are
only the most recent air-
port issues. In the past
two years, council, staff
and citizens have been
concerned with a series
of airport-related prob-
lems safety, noise, the
golf course, accurate
take-off and landing sta-
tistics, runway improve-
ments and correct inter-
pretations of FAA regula-
tions are examples of
other aspects of the "air-
port issue."
Again it was a previous
council that first and
rightly rejected a flaw-
ed airport Master Plan
Update document pre-
pared by the MEA Group.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Runway 4-22 wasn't 'shovel-ready'


Editor:
There seems to be misperception about why stim-
ulus funds were not requested for the improvement of
Runway 4-22 at Venice Municipal Airport.
Projects for this funding are to be "shovel-ready,"
meaning that everything should be in place to begin
construction immediately. The projects are also
required to provide employment for area residents.
Venice City Council is in the process of completing
the airport master plan (and recently hired DY con-
sultants to undertake that process). The master plan
will identify what is needed at the airport. Without the
plan in hand, the project does not meet the require-
ments for economic stimulus package grants.
Once the master plan and airport layout plan are
completed, the city will move toward assessing the
appropriate means of improving runway 4-22. The
city has been successful for many decades in attain-
ing federal funding for such projects.
One example is about $4.5 million for the rehabili-
tation of runway 13-31 in 2006. The city expects to
continue its success in the future.

The sands of
time were whiter
Editor:
The photo of Casey
Key on page 2 of the
March 25 paper, taken in
the 1920s in Casey Pass,
sure makes it look like
Venice had a fine white
beach at that time. Beach
photos can give a mis-
leading impression of
sand color, but this one
includes a variety of
items for color compari-
son, such as dry grass,
fences, etc.
Also, the sand at
water's edge is light; all
sand looks darker when
wet, but only a very light
sand like Siesta Key
Beach shows minimal
darkening.
Could intracoastal
dredging in the early
1900s be the origin of the
dark sand? Or possibly
(gasp!) the later Venice
canal?
The record shows that
Corps of Engineers pro-


jects in Florida were eco-
nomic-driven with little
concern for environmen-
tal side effects.

If this is change,...
Editor:
They are selling us
down the river.
Is anyone else in beau-
tiful Venice shocked and
dismayed at what the
arrogant Democrats in
the House and Senate are
doing to our country and
the American people?
Does anyone under-
stand a trillion dollars in
deficit pork spending
with 9,000 earmarks, fol-
lowed by $410 billion in
deficit pork spending
with 8,000 earmarks -
irresponsible and mind
boggling.
And now we have a
president who lies about
earmarks, transparency
and integrity. Is this the


change the electorate
thought they were going
to get when they voted in
November back-
breaking debt and lies?
It's obvious the president
has no power; he is but a
puppet of Speaker Pelosi
and her henchman in the
Senate, H. Reid.
Our country is in the
hands of an empty suit
and two arrogant, third-
rate political backs with
no clue about how to
solve anything except
with tax-and-spend def-
icit pork piled on the
backs of the American
people, consequently
plummeting us down the
road to bankruptcy and
socialism, or worse.
Though I know it's a
waste of breath, how
about bailing out the
American people by ex-
ercising fiscal restraint
and balancing the bud-
get?
I'm a very disappoint-
ed and angry American.

Relay is community
rallying point
Editor:
The American Cancer
Society Relay For Life is a
community event in
every sense of the word.
It is a chance for the
community to come to-
gether to celebrate those
who have faced cancer,
remember those lost and
empower everyone to
fight back.
But we are faced with
a critical shortage of vol-
unteer leaders. With the
challenges of our day-to-
day demands, time has
become a premium and
many people are finding
it more difficult to partic-


ipate in community ser-
vice. It is because of the
volunteers who preceded
us, however, that certain
types of cancer are now
highly treatable or even
curable. With more help,
we will continue to win
the war.
The American Cancer
Society needs your help
now. Plans are under way
for the 2009 annual fund-
raiser Relay For Life, held
at Laurel Nokomis School
on April 24 and 25, to
support cutting-edge
cancer research, help
provide free transporta-
tion to hospitals, help
prevent youth smoking,
publish lifesaving litera-
ture and develop a new
generation of weapons to
fight cancer.
Now is the time for in-
dividuals, families, orga-
nizations, schools, reli-
gious groups, corpora-
tions and small business-
es to build a team and
join our fight to reduce
the burden of cancer
across America. Relay
For Life can be the site of
a company picnic or
family gathering while
supporting a great cause.

LET 'EM HAVE IT: WHAT SHOULD BE DONE TO REDUCE TRAFFIC TIE-UPS DUE TO BRIDGE OPENINGS? CALL US
AT 207-1111.


I can't even drive away from the bridge


Paralyzed. It's ludicrous and frustrating to have
one sailboat paralyze downtown Venice. The bridge
goes up and downtown traffic is paralyzed with red
lights. Left-turn green arrows are needed, especially
going west on Tampa Avenue. Why hasn't this been


addressed a long time ago?

Rigged. Ijust sawa car
from Traverse City, Mich.,
which had a "Drill here,
drill now, save money"
sticker on it. I thought,
great idea. Let's let the oil
rig set up in Lake Mich-
igan, Lake Superior and
Lake Huron and go to it.
I'm sure the folks in Port
Austin and other coastal
towns in that area will be
happy as clams. I know
we'll be happy because
we're not drilling in the
gulf.
No surprise. Why
would anyone who lived
across the street from the
airport start complaining
about the noise? What
did you expect to happen
when you lived across
from the airport? You're
the ones who should
move away from where
you are. Quit complain-
ing about something that
was there before you.
Mr. precedent. The
other day I went to the
wine shop and seriously
overbought. Now, some
might say I should have
known better, but I be-
lieve the city of Venice
should be responsible.
After all, it allowed the
wine shop to exist in the
first place. More impor-
tant, I never received
adequate training in how
to choose an affordable


merlot or pick a preco-
cious pinot noir that's
within my budget. There-
fore, I'd like the city attor-
ney, who, after all works
for me since I'm a taxpay-
er, to negotiate a settle-
ment with my credit card
company. I think this is
only fair. And after all, it's
not like we haven't had a
precedent.
Hooked. I break the
law and then compound
it by running up extended
attorneys' fees, denying,
hiding, trying to get out of
it and trying to handle my
own personal agenda
toward the airport. Let's
see. You've got a broken
law, lawyers' fees and my
employer decides to take
the fall, pay the fees and
I'm off the hook. Right? I
don't think so.
Bad fans. We were at
the Venice High School
baseball game in North
Port Tuesday evening.
The actions of some of
the fans from Venice
throwing objects at the
opposing coach, the vul-
garity in their voices, and
our head coach standing
only 20 or 30 feet away
and not hearing it, were
totally beyond our belief.
Finally, after looking for
some school officials, of


which
found,


none could be
the coach, Mr.


Faulkner, came over and
admonished the crowd
and told everybody off
and that their conduct
would not be tolerated.
But it went on for several
minutes. It's just not good
sportsmanship, much
less Venice baseball.
We've supported Venice
baseball and Venice foot-
ball for 22 years and we'll
continue to do so. We
hope that the school in
the future will have more
security at the games,
and any of these so-call-
ed kids, yelling all these
obscenities, should be
barred from attending
any school sports. Again,
we appreciate the Venice
Indians and all that their
coaches try to do, but the
actions of some fans of
the schools could have
turned into a great big
brawl, something like you
see on TV Please don't let
that happen in the future.
Buttered up. Your call
line says we're not to do
any attacks on business.
Well, your writer, Christy
Herzog, had an attack on
Walmart. She says they
sell butter for $2 less than
the grocery stores, and
that they should give
their employees, quoting
her, "a damn raise." Well, I
did some research and
found out that the aver-
age Walmart employee
actually earns more than
$1.50 more than the local
grocery store employee.
Herzog apparently has
some type of a grudge
against Walmart. She


shouldn't be using her
column to do that, and
she should get her facts
straight. People go to
Walmart because they do
save money, and in these
tough times, that's what
we need to do. I'm glad
there's a Walmart near
me. I don't like her attack-
ing a local business, and
I'm surprised that you
printed that.
Editor's Note: Her-
zog's piece was a guest
column in which she men-
tioned Walmart as a com-
pany; its history of labor
issues is well-documented
on the Internet.
No apology? As a citi-
zen of Venice, I wasn't
even asked if we should
pay our city officials' legal
bills. Why is that? How do
these council members
justify and yet never
apologize for their deeds?
Don't you at least owe us
something an apology
or paying a fair share of
the legal costs you passed
on to all of us? In my opin-
ion, you do the crime, you
pay the fine. That should
come from each person
who was responsible for
this entire legal mess.
Respect for our city lead-
ers? Your respect is greatly
diminished as a result of
these actions.
Happy now? I cer-
tainly hope all of you no
growth, anti-airport vot-
ers are all happy with
your selection of the gang
of four to be on Venice
City Council. Now you
will have their million
dollar legal costs to re-
mind you how ill advised
your choice was.

is going to change drastically?
There's fighting and turmoil going
on in most countries of the world.
What were peace-loving countries,
aren't anymore.
People are leaving their home-
lands and flocking to Europe and
the United States, and these people
are treated the same or better than
we are. They are allowed to develop
terrorist camps to train others in
gangs, kill and smuggle in drugs.
Innocent people get killed in drunk-
driving incidents, are raped, mur-
dered and more. Yet these people get
let off by the system.
So, where on Earth is there a

Tell FAA to take a flying leap
Editor:
The headline, "FAA questions
Sharky's lease," should infuriate
us. The FAA misconstrues and uses
the U.S. Commerce Clause to poke
the federal government's nose
under our local government's tent
flap to illegally tell us what to do.
Here is the gotcha it uses: "The
FAA must concur with all nonaero-
nautical leases for airport proper-


ty." The FAA's chief concern is
"whether the city is getting a fair
rate of return on its lease."
This means much more to our
community than a rate of return.
We need to develop a little intesti-
nal fortitude and tell the FAA to
stay out of it or we will see it in
court. This business is not that of
some big brother bureaucrat in
Washington, D.C.
Our government was elected;
the FAA was appointed, and we
don't even know by whom.

The love coming from

When you see me
making my way around

In order for the doctors to
get the cancer out of my
body, they had to ampu-

1OA SUN NEWSPAPERS WEEKEND EDITION APRIL 4, 2009


Tentative agreement reached on River Road


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER


Despite recent con-
cerns about a $2 million
shortfall, three local gov-
ernments have reached a
tentative agreement and
are moving forward with
the long-awaited, $13.7
million widening of the
intersection of U.S. 41
and River Road.
Sarasota County, the
West Villages Improve-
ment District and the city
of North Port are review-
ing a draft interlocal
agreement, according to
J.P Marchand, an engi-
neer with Kimley-Horn
and Associates, who rep-
resents the West Villages
district.
He said the parties to
the agreement "are all con-
fident" that the main is-
sues are being addressed.
The biggest issue was
who would be responsi-
ble for construction of the
intersection improve-
ments, and thus hold the
money for the construc-
tion, Marchand said.
"We agreed that we
(the district) would con-
tinue finishing off the
design and permitting of
the improvements and
then the county would
take over for construc-
tion," he said.
The other big issue
had been traffic capacity


reservation, which en-
sures West Villages ca-
pacity at the intersection
in exchange for its finan-
cial contribution. The
parties agreed to address
that issue in a separate
agreement.
All three parties are
looking over a draft
agreement prior to their
April 15 meeting.
"I think we are in pret-
ty good shape here,"
Marchand said, adding
that he anticipates being
able to report more pro-
gress to the district board
of supervisors at their
next monthly meeting
April 28. Meanwhile, the
North Port City Com-
mission and the Sarasota
County Commission also
will discuss the agree-
ment at upcoming meet-
ings.
The intersection is a
key segment of the coun-
ty's overall, long-term,
$92.9 million Englewood
Interstate Connector
plan to widen River Road
from Englewood to In-
terstate 75. That would
assist motorists who may
need to evacuate the Gulf
beaches prior to hurri-
canes.
Intersection improve-
ments also are critical to
the future success of
West Villages communi-
ties Island Walk and Gran
Paradiso.


The costs, including
design, permitting, right-
of-way acquisition, in-
stallation and construc-
tion of the improve-
ments, are estimated at
$13.7 million.
In July of last year, the
county passed a resolu-
tion authorizing the use
of more than $8 million
in impact fees collected
within the city of North
Port for completion of
the intersection improve-
ments. The city followed
with a similar resolution
in September. Combin-
ed, the city and county
will contribute $9.5 mil-
lion.
The district sold
bonds in November 2005
to cover its $2.4 million
commitment to the
intersection improve-
ments. That includes
purchasing parcels on
the southwest quadrant
for nearly $38,700 from
Fourth Quarter Proper-
ties.
The county is present-
ly reviewing partial plans
submitted by the district
engineer, as well as the
probable cost estimate
for the construction pro-
ject.
"We've been working
on it for quite a while,"
county senior planner
Beth Wasson said.

Bridge repairs will close restaurant


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS
COLUMNIST

The swing bridge on
Blackburn Point Road is
scheduled to be closed for
almost a whole month.
"If this happens I will
have to close my restau-
rant," said Jim Van Hu-
bert, owner of Casey Key
Fish House and Tiki Bar.
"It will mean 35 employ-
ees being unemployed
for a month or however
long it takes in these hard
times."
Pinky Pakalapati, pro-
ject manager for Sarasota
County Capitol Manage-
ment Services, said the
half-million-dollar con-
tract to replace the me-
chanical bearings and
gears has been approved.
This work will not affect
the superstructure of the
historical landmark.

outlined for the work to
be done during May
Following the presenta-
tion by attendees re-
questing a delay in the
work until June, the
county is considering the
situation and having dis-
cussions with the con-
tractor.
Van Hubert has ap-
pealed to the county to
delay the work until Au-

he closes his restaurant
annually. May, June and
July are the peak state
and European tourist
season for customers at
Casey Key Fish House.

the bridge completely
and anchoring nearby if
the project is delayed un-
til hurricane season.
However, this could lead
to a longer shutdown.
Emergency evacuation
for residents would also
present major problems
in the event of a storm.
Compensation for the
restaurant during the
period of closure has not
been considered. Alter-
nate access using the Al-
bee Road Bridge to North
Casey Key and Van Hu-


bert's restaurant is an
estimated 20-to-30 min-
ute ride, said Pakalapati.
"Technically people
have access by boat and
car, but relistically that is
not going to happen,"
saidVan Hubert.
A final decision on the
commencement of bridge
work in May or June is
expected within a week,
enabling the contractor
to complete arrange-
ments.

WEEKEND EDITION APRIL 4, 2009


POLICE BEAT


Charges forwarded
The results of a Sarasota County Sheriff's Office
internal investigation have led to charges being for-
warded to the state attorney's office for review,
according to an SCSO press release.
The investigation concerns a laptop computer
used by former Sheriff Bill Balkwill from which public
records allegedly were deleted. The documents are
also evidence in a lawsuit against Balkwill and the
department alleging that Balkwill improperly award-
ed a contract relating to county jail services.
The sheriff's office has also hired an accounting
firm to do a financial review of several agency
accounts, according to the release.
Shoppers followed
Steven Michael Zelaney, 23, 400 block Valencia
Road, Nokomis, was arrested and charged with pos-
session of a controlled substance, loitering and
prowling and obstructing or opposing an officer with-
out violence at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Zelaney's bond was
$1,870.
The Venice Police Department received a com-
plaint that a white male was trying to break into sev-
eral cars in the Sweetbay Supermarket parking lot off
U.S. 41 Bypass. A witness advised a VPD officer that
the suspect ran in the direction of Burger King as the
patrol car pulled into the supermarket parking lot.
Zelaney was apprehended after a foot chase by a
VPD officer and a Sarasota County Sheriff's deputy.
Officers found Zelaney in possession of the drugs
Clonazepam and Trazadone. On-scene investigation
revealed Zelaney had actually been following individ-
ual shoppers through the parking lot.
Child taken into custody
On April 4, Stephen Zalaney told a Venice Police
Department officer at Motel 6 in Venice that another
person in the motel had possession of a purse that
belonged to Zalaney's girlfriend. Police later deter-
mined the purse was likely stolen in previous thefts in
which Zalaney is a suspect.
When police searched the motel room of Angela K.
Courtney, Charles M. Lehnert and Joan C. Clark, they
found a variety of narcotics paraphernalia and pills,
some of which were located near a sleeping 4-year-
old child. Lehnert admitted all three suspects had
been shooting up earlier in the evening. Fresh track
marks were observed on Courtney's arms.
Child Protective Investigator Debbie Theriault
responded to the scene to take custody of the child.
She was given information on two other children that
were residing at another location. Additional charges
are pending.
Courtney was arrested and charged with posses-
sion of a controlled substance, possession of drug
paraphernalia and child neglect (without injury).
Lehnert was arrested and charged with possession


of a controlled substance and possession of drug
paraphernalia.
Clark was arrested and charged with possession of
a controlled substance and possession of drug para-
phernalia.

Indians rally to beat Southeast


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


Venice junior Joe Iorio's walk-off dou-
ble scored the winning run with one out
in the bottom of the seventh inning as the
Indians escaped with a 4-3 win over
Southeast in a Class 5A-District 12 game
Friday at Venice High.
The Indians (6-11 overall, 6-6 district)
trailed 3-0 after four innings before rally-
ing with two runs in the fifth and single
runs in the sixth and seventh innings.
With one out in the seventh inning,
Rex Ingerich reached on an infield single
in the hole between shortstop and third
base. Iorio then crushed a 1-1 pitch over
the leftfielder's head rolling to the fence
scoring Ingerich with ease and ending
the game.


Venice senior Chris Atamanchuk (3-3)
got the win in relief by allowing just one
hit in two innings.
Trailing, 3-0, Venice finally tagged
Southeast starter Branden Bechtel in the
fifth inning for two runs. Bechtel, who
retired nine batters in a row, allowed a
leadoff single to Brent Krauss. Michael
Geers walked and a sacrifice bunt by
Austin Hill moved Krauss to third and
Geers to second. Atamanchuk followed
by hitting a ball up the middle which was
bobbled by the shortstop for an error
allowing two runs to score. The Indians
loaded the bases with one out but the
Seminoles (3-15, 1-12) got out of the jam
with a fly out and groundout.
The Indians tied it at 3-3 with a run in
the bottom of the sixth inning. Venice
loaded the bases as Matt Tellor, Krauss


and Geers reached on consecutive sin-
gles including two by bunt. After a strike-
out, Atamanchuk's sacrifice fly into right
field scored pinch-runner Andy
Ellingsen.
Southeast batted around and scored
three runs on four hits and three Venice
errors in the third inning. Joseph
Muldoon doubled and Josh Grabski
walked. An errant pickoff attempt at sec-
ond base moved pinch-runner Paul King
to third base. A bad throw by the center-
fielder moved Grabski to second base.
Andy Ramirez hit a two-run single then
Michael Suchy plated the third run on
another single.
Ingerich and Krauss led Venice with
two hits each.

Archer's three golds power Venice


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High boys track
and field team captured six
gold medals including three
by sprinter Dri Archer as the
Indians put a
scare into River-
view's domi-
nance in the
Sarasota County
Track and Field
Championships
but fell short for
second place on Archer
Thursday at
Booker High.
Riverview, which has won
the county boys title every
year but once since 1984, used
its depth to edge the Indians,
169-155.
"It's very important to the
kids," Venice boys coach Larry
Shannon said about contend-
ing for the team title. "It's very
special. Something Venice
High School hasn't done for a
long time. To push a team like
Riverview to the very end
speaks volume of the kids
hard work and coaches hard
work."
In the girls, the Lady
Indians had two first-place
finishes to place fourth with
82.5 points. North Port ran
away with the team title with
160 points.
"Overall I'm hoping we are
third. I came in here hoping to
get second but I had a couple
of people come up sick ove
the last couple of days," Venice
girls coach Brenda Clark said.
"I didn't get as good as results
as I wanted in some events. I


would have like to have done
better. I think we could have."
Venice trailed, 144-109,
with four events remaining.
The Indians grabbed 17 points
in the 800-meter run with a
second, third and sixth place
then added 24 points in the
200-meter dash as Archer set a
personal-best time of 21.63
seconds to notch his third win
of the meet. Teammate Robert
Fordham was second in 22.44
while Max Brandow and Trey
Burton were fourth and
eighth.
The Indians couldn't get
any closer than 154-150 with
two events left.
"We are missing a guy on
vacation and didn't finish a
couple of races that I thought
we should," Shannon said. "It
would have made it a lot
closer."
Archer was once again
dominate in the sprints as
the senior, who signed to
play football at Kent State
University, smoked the com-
petition in the 100-meter
dash with a school-record
time of 10.51 seconds with
the wind. Fordham was third
and Burton eighth.
"I was tight at the start,"
Archer said. "I needed to
warm up a little more."
Archer also anchored the
winning 4x100 relay team
with Burton, Brandow and
Fordham in 42.79 seconds.
"He was very excited about
competing," Shannon said
about Archer. "He seems like
he is getting faster as the sea-

for," said USPTA district

"Well we ended up with
over 130 people and the
love in the air was incredi-
ble. We made more money
than last year."
The food was donated by
Sweet Tomatoes, The Soup
King, Simons & Geicko's and
drinks from Coke. Lori
Mooney and Brigitte Bressler
served the food. Jazz band

Tumbler gave a mide to
every participant with the

"I feel we've been in most every game;' said
Venice coach Craig Faulkner. "I feel like we beat
ourselves every game. We are averaging 3-4 errors

Errors costly in softball team's loss to Manatee


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


Errors against good teams
don't mix.
The Venice High softball
team found out against Mana-
tee on Wednesday night at
Venice High.
The Lady Indians commit-
ted four errors and allowed
three unearned runs in a 3-0
loss to the Lady Hurricanes in
a Class 5A-District 12 game.
The loss gives the Lady
Indians (14-5 overall, 12-2 dis-
trict) the No. 2 seed in the
upcoming district tourna-
ment.
Manatee is the top seed as
the Lady Hurricanes (18-2, 13-
0) are the only team to beat
Venice in the district this sea-
son.
This is first regular-season
shutout against Venice since
March 6, 2007 when Lakewood
Ranch won, 4-0. This is also the
first regular-season home loss


since Feb. 27, 2007 when Sara-
sota pulled out a 7-5 victory.
"You can't give good teams
four or five outs an inning,"
said Venice coach Larry
Sandburg. "That first inning
we gave them four outs. They
are a good team. That's what
happens when you give them
two more outs. You are going to
pay for it."
Venice's Stephanie Sullivan
and Manatee's Caroline Curran
were locked in a pitcher's duel.
Curran (9-0) got the upper
hand in the first inning as
Manatee scored a run. With
two outs, Shelby Knox reached
second base on a dropped fly
ball in left field. Tura Magley
followed with a single into
right-center field gap to score
Knox.
Venice's offense couldn't get
on track against the left-hand-
ed Curran, who allowed five
hits and finished with 13
strikeouts including strikeout
out the side in the second and


seventh innings.
The Lady Indians threat-
ened in the third inning. With
one out, Amber Yonker sin-
gled. Kelly Ott laid down a sac-
rifice bunt to move Yonker to
second. Yonker tried for third
on the play but was thrown out
on a close play at third base to
end the inning.
Sullivan (12-3) was just as
effective for Venice as she
allowed just five hits with
seven strikeouts.
Before the seventh inning,
Manatee only had one batter
in scoring position after the
first inning.
Venice put two runners on
base in the sixth inning as
Chelsea Zgrabik doubled and
Mel Dembinski walked with
two outs. Curran got out of the
jam with a strikeout.
Manatee scored two
unearned runs in the top of the
seventh inning as the Lady
Indians committed three
errors. Casey Craft hit an infield


single just over Sullivan's head.
Cindy Micochero reached on
an fielding error. Kasey Gray
laid down a bunt and was safe
at first as the ball was dropped.
Curran singled into left field to
score Micochero then another
fielding error scored the final
run.
"I told them the name of the
game is to make plays and we
didn't make the plays when we
needed to," said Sandburg.
"We need somebody when
things start going bad. We need
someone to step up and make
a play and get us out of the
inning so we can get in the
dugout and nobody did that."
Venice plays at the
Sebastian River Tournament
on April 10-11.

of his times. I'm proud of him.
Hopefully it just keeps him moti-
vated to keep working hard."
Brandow also took an individ-
ual gold medal in the long jump
with a leap of 21 feet, 3 inches.
In the shot put, Venice's Ben
Steele set a personal best with a
throw of 49 feet, 5 inches to take
first place by nearly five feet over
second place.
"He was in a rut for a while and
couldn't go over 48 (feet)," said
Shannon. "He started getting a little
frustrated so we went back and
looked at what he did last year to get
better at the end of the year. I think
that gave him confidence to go back
to practice and it showed today."
The Indians added 25 team
points in shot put as Mike Lopez,
Kyle Gilbert and James Auxier fol-
lowed Steele with a third- through
fifth-place finishes.
Venice also won the 4x800 relay
with the team of Naphatara
Teerasitikul, Jake Scully, Brian
White and Dillon Boyd.
In the girls, junior Heather
Williams took first place in the
high jump with a height of 4 feet, 6
inches as she beat three other
jumpers on less misses. Williams
also took third in the pole vault.
Freshman Kelly White used a
tremendous kick down the back
stretch to win the 800-meter run with

a time of 2 minutes, 35.82 seconds.
"I tried to stay as close as I could
but I was on the outside so I could
have the straightaway at the end,"
said White. "Not my best but it was
good for the wind."
"She can go a little faster than
that. I believe by the district meet
she can run a 2:25 or 2:27," said
Clark. "She has a phenomenal kick
and work that to our advantage. I
want her within striking distance
of the first-place person. I want her
10-15 meters back to try and con-
serve a little bit."
White also anchored the 4x800
relay with teammates Rosa Canas,
Lucy Horton and Cynthia
Melendez-Flynn, who took sec-
ond.
The only Lady Indian athlete to
place in the top eight three different
events was Alyssa Tresch, who took
third in the 400-meter dash, eighth
in the 200-meter dash, and ran on
the second-place 4x400 relay.
Venice's Breanna Hafeli led
Venice in the field events with a third
place in the discus and shot put.
Clark said she was happy for the
long jumpers as they improved by
over a foot. Kyela Fayett and Maura
Szerbin placed sixth and eighth.

Once-in-a-generation


sun celebration April 8


BY DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER


A rare astronomical event that
happens every 28 years will unite
Jews at Venice Beach and at parks
and outdoor places around the
world on April 8.
On that day, due to an alignment
of space and time, the sun will be at
the same spot where it was when it
was created 5,769 years ago, accord-
ing to the Torah.
It happens only once every 28
years because each solar year begins
365 days and about six hours after
the previous year. It takes 28 years
for the solar year to start again at the
the same point in the week a
Wednesday said Rabbi Sholom
Schmerling, with Chabad of Venice
and North Port.
Why Wednesday?
Jews observe the Sabbath from
Friday at sundown to Saturday at
sundown.
"We know the sun was created on
the fourth day of creation a
Wednesday," Schmerling said.
The last time the sun blessing
occurred was in 1981.
Schmerling, 28, was an infant at
the time.
"It's going to be my first time cele-
brating it; my children's first time," he
said. "It's a remarkable event to
remember. I'm very excited to be
there celebrating with other people."
Observant Jews say thanks to God

with myriad blessings, ranging from
daily thanks for food to weekly,
monthly and annual prayers mark-
ing the Sabbath and holy days.
There are blessings for natural
events such as thunder and light-
ning.
For those who believe in creation,
and for all mankind, the sun bless-
ing is an opportunity to be thankful,
Schmerling said.
"With solar power an increasingly
viable alternative to nonrenewable
energy sources, this once-in-a-gen-
eration event is timely and practi-
cal," he said. "It reminds us we are
blessed with virtually unlimited
power and potential just waiting for
us to tap into it."
Thousands of years ago, rabbis
argued over the precise length of the
solar year, and their discussions are
recorded in the Talmud.
The actual sun blessing will take
only a few minutes, and there will be
no noticeable changes in the heav-
ens, the rabbi said.

Residents worried county's 'binding' plan isn't


BY GERALD ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

How much assurance
do you have that a pro-
posed development in
your neighborhood will
turn out as promised?
Not much in Sarasota
County, it seems.
Despite a carefully
conceived set of proce-
dures allowing residents
to review zoning peti-
tions neighborhood
workshops, charettes,
public hearings and pre-
sentations to revitaliza-
tion committees, in the
cases of Nokomis and
Osprey current lan-
guage in county ordi-
nances for land use sug-
gests a loophole.
A safeguard suppos-
edly exists. It calls for
binding development
concept plans. But what
constitutes "binding"?
A proposal to revitalize
Osprey's waterfront with
a 178-room "luxury re-
sort destination" hotel
going before the county
commissioner on April 7
illustrates the dilemma.
Osprey residents, par-
ticularly those living next
to the hotel site, have
been up in arms for
months about the pro-
posal.
They fear that the
commission will approve
the idea, and then the
developer will sell the
land to someone else to
build something less
than luxurious.
The current developer
won the endorsement of
the Osprey Revitalization
Committee after showing
it artist's renderings. But
it took until a subsequent
meeting to prepare a
binding site plan.
That looked so differ-
ent, neighbors were alarm-
ed.
According to David
Merrill, when asked how
binding a specific use on
a site plan would be,
county Zoning Admin-
istrator Tina Crawford
said a change to another
use within the same zon-
ing district would be
"almost automatic." Mer-
rill has been the most
vocal neighbor.
She explained, accord-



SCAT turns 30

STAFF REPORT

There's no free ride -
except on April 9.
Sarasota County Area
Transit will turn 30 years
old that day and will cele-
brate by offering free
rides on all fixed-routes.
SCAT will also hold two
events: a 9 a.m. ceremo-
ny to honor current and
past SCAT employees and
a customer appreciation
celebration at 3 p.m.
The 9 a.m. event at
SCAT's office, 5303 Pink-
ney Ave., Sarasota, also
will feature a ribbon-cut-
ting ceremony for the
opening of its expanded
Mobility Center, accord-
ing to SCAT officials. A
current or former SCAT
employee will be induct-
ed into the SCAT Wall of
Fame.
"We want to show our
appreciation for the 40
million passengers SCAT
has been privileged to
serve over the last three
decades," SCAT general
manager Anthony Beck-
ford said.
From its beginning in
1979, with just six buses
covering nine routes,
SCAT currently operates
44 fixed-route buses,
including 10 diesel-elec-
tric hybrid buses, on 24


routes Monday through
Saturday, according to
information provided by
the bus line. It also offers

South County couple honored




by Community Video Archives


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

Arts activists Annette and Tom Dignam of Manasota Key are being immortalized in the Community Video Archives this
year.
With fellow inductees Wendy Resnick, Julie Rohr McHugh, Stuart Stearns and DickVitale, they join an elite group of
people who have made a difference in the greater Sarasota area.
CVA is a nonprofit organization that recognizes living people who are interviewed about their lives in the area and
immortalized on video for inclusion in a collection of video records kept at area archives and libraries as a valuable his-
torical resource. Creation of the archives was an idea of Annette Scherman, who, with Jan
Wilhelm, founded the organization. Scherman, known for her TV show, "Community,"
which is broadcast in the Venice area on BLAB-TV channel 21, continues to run the
organization with the help of several additional volunteers. Like the CVA hon-
Tom and Annette orees, Scherman has been an active member of the community, hosting
fundraisers in addition to the CVA.
DThis year's luncheon will begin with a reception at 11:15 a.m. followed by
an 11:45 a.m. lunch at Michael's on East Ballroom in Sarasota. Clips of the
videos compiled of each inductee will be shown. The luncheon chair is Chris
Pfahler of Venice. Married to Dr. Ken Pfahler, she is on the board of Manatee
Community College, Girls Inc., the Education Foundation of Sarasota County
and the Van Wezel Foundation. She also is president of the board of the
Sarasota Ballet of Florida.
/ P Past inductees
Past inductees have included Deane Allyn, the founder and driving
7 force behind the Sarasota Opera; Bill Mote, who endowed and
inspired Mote Marine Laboratory; humanitarian Stanley Kane;
1 Realtor Michael Saunders; theater entrepreneurs Robert and Bob
Turoff of the Golden Apple Dinner Theatre; former Sarasota Ballet
l Artistic Director Robert de Warren; and the late Dale Shields, who
founded the old Pelican Man Bird Sanctuary. The CVA also has
honored events like the Opera Gala, Designer Showcase and
Looking Glass Ball; corporations like Northern Trust and SunTrust;
and artists such as Richard Capes and Gale Fulton Ross.
Annette and Tom Dignam
College sweethearts, Annette and Tom Dignam have made an
impact on the entire area as well as their own Englewood area
o where they have worked tirelessly to raise funds for and to pro-
mote the Hermitage Artists' Retreat on Manasota Key.
"HWe met in college at Auburn," she said.
In their second year there, Tom proposed.
She accepted but thought they would wait until they graduated.
I He didn't want to wait so they came back to Englewood and he
worked in her family's insurance business (Key Agency) for two
years before they returned to Auburn, where they graduated in
1966.
"We have been married for 46 years," she said.
Annette's father started the Key Agency, from which Tom recent-
ly retired. It is today run by the third generation of the family, son
David Dignam and daughter Leslie Edwards, who, like her father,
is active with the Hermitage.
The newly named Tom Dignam Beach Cottage
is the newest renovation on the property that has
become a retreat for artists. Resident artists are
chosen by a committee to come to the Hermitage
for up to six weeks at no cost. In return, they are
asked to contribute something to the community
a talk, concert or work of art.
SUN PHOTO BY KIM COOL Tom became active with the Hermitage in 1999
because of his friendship with Hermitage founder
Syd Adler. After Adler's death, Dignam took up the
charge to restore the entire 8.4-acre campus along
the beach, involving his family in the process.
Community involvement is a family activity and
extends to involvement with many boards and
activities such as the American Cancer Society's
Relay for Life, Annette's involvement on the board of
directors of MCC and many other causes.

Interest in Ringling Towers relics 'phenomenal'


BY ROB BROYLES
STAFF WRITER


The interest at the re-
cent sale and auction of
architectural elements of
The John Ringling Towers
at Sarasota Architectural
Salvage drew a large, en-
thusiastic and passionate
crowd. The group was
shoulder to shoulder and
constantly moving through
the aisles and around the
section partitioned off
toward the rear of the
building containing the
majority of the sale items.
The line of people stretch-
ed outside the building,
waiting for an opportuni-
ty to buy a piece of Sara-
sota's history and the
John Ringling legacy.
People bought small
horsehair plaster pieces
of the hand-painted cor-
bels for between $5 and
$25. The corbels once
lined the entryway and
dining room of the grand
hotel. The plaster is
called horsehair plaster
because a layer of horse-
hair was embedded in
the wet plaster to add
extra strength when origi-
nally formed. In some
pieces, the horsehair was
still visible protruding
from the rough edges of
the corbel.
A lot of folks showed
interest in, and bought,
the huge beams painted
with floral and geometric
designs that once adorn-
ed ceilings in several of
the public rooms. Some
items, such as colorful
tile-lined niches and
large pieces of wall they
were built into, were re-
served for the silent auc-
tion.
"It's been phenome-
nal," said Sarasota Arc-
hitectural Salvage owner
Jesse White. "We've got a
full house and people
waiting in line outside to
get in. We've got three
cashiers, and the people
are backed up to the
door."
At press time White did
not have a total for Sat-
urday's sales, although he
said about $25,000 will be
given to the Sarasota

County History Center.
When the final buzzer
rang for the silent auc-
tion, three or four cou-
ples came face-to-face
over who had made the
last bid and, according to
White, it became a tense
situation. However, he
added that, in the end,
everything was worked
out between the bidding
couples.
Proceeds from the sale
will benefit the Friends of
the Sarasota County His-
tory Center, the Sarasota
Alliance for Historic Pres-
ervation and the Histor-
ical Society of Sarasota
County.
Originally built in 1926


by Owen Bums and de-
signed by Dwight James
Baum, the hotel was first
named El Vemona Hotel
after Bums' wife.
With the decline in
interest in Florida real
estate of the late 1920s,
the stock market crash in
1929 and Great Depres-
sion that followed, John
Ringling bought the
property and building in
1930 at auction. He re-
named it The John Ring-
ling Towers. Despite diffi-
cult times, it was one of
the more outstanding
hotels on the West Coast
of Florida.
When the building
was demolished, relics

Hand-painted beams,
intricate tile work and
handcrafted plaster add-
ed to the elegance of the
hotel overlooking spark-
ling Sarasota Bay. But it
was not to last.
The Depression hit
John Ringling hard. He
lost his vast fortune, and
many of his holdings
were sold. However, he
was able to keep the
museum, his home and
huge art collection. At his

death on Dec. 2, 1936, in
New York City, he willed
his bayfront mansion, art
collection and the muse-
um to the state of Florida.
The John Ringling
Towers were eventually
converted into apart-
ments in the 1960s. In the
early 1980s the apart-
ments were permanently
closed and the building
sat empty until 1998
when it was demolished
to make way for the Ritz-
Carlton Sarasota.
During the time it was
vacant, vandalism and
exposure to the harsh
Florida elements took


their toll on the historic
building. Vagrants slept
in its empty rooms and
left their litter when they
moved on to other
places.
Although it is a sad
ending to a once-splen-
did dream, some of the
glory lives on in the
grand relics of this fa-
mous hotel. And fortu-
nately, some are now
owned by area collectors.
Sarasota Architectural
Salvage is at 1093 Central
Ave., Sarasota. For infor-
mation on any remain-
ing items for sale, call
White at 362-0803.

FINE WHINES


While you're in a firing mood...


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


Dear President Obama:
First of all, let me offer my belated
congratulations on your victory last
year. It was truly an election for the
ages, and I'm not just saying that
because I'm about to ask you for some
favors, or because I'm a lefty pinko
media type (Go socialism!).
Since we're both busy men, I'll get
right down to business.
I read about your decision to force
the resignation of Rick Wagoner, the
head of GM, as part of the effort to res-
cue the company without putting it
through bankruptcy. Now, I'm in no
position to judge whether the gentle-
man was doing a good job or was just
backing up to hit the same iceberg over
and over. I do, however, see the psycho-
logical boost that a change in leader-
ship can provide during times of crisis.
That was your major campaign theme,
as I recall.
Of course, it's too soon to know if this
strategy will work for GM, though I join
all Americans (well, everyone but Rush
Limbaugh) in hoping your policies get
our economic ship of state sailing full
speed ahead again real soon. But if
kicking Wagoner to the curb does the
trick, I'd like to suggest a few other
CEOs who at the very least should feel
some heat from the White House.
In no particular order, perhaps you
could have a word with:
The president of the company that


made our printer. It has a little doohick-
ey that seems to have no purpose other
than to jam the machine eight to 10
times a day, making us use too much
paper. Come to think of it, you might
want to include the companies that
make and sell paper in this chat.
The president of the Detroit Lions.
My hometown football team set a
record for incompetence and futility
last year that makes GM look like a
Swiss watch. We do have a new coach
(like that's helped before) and general
manager but, barring some other
major changes, the Lions might be bet-
ter off competing against college teams.
The city could really use something to
look forward to this fall, don't you
think?
The presidents of the companies
that make the products Billy Mays and
"Vince" sell in those annoying com-
mercials. I don't really have to go into
detail on this one, do I?
I know you have a lot on your plate,
so I don't expect immediate action on
my suggestions. But now that the NCAA
basketball tournament is almost over,
maybe you can squeeze one in
between picking out a dog and hoeing
your new garden. After all, a lot of peo-
ple think it was the media that got you
elected. Personally, I didn't know we
had that many votes.

Your friend,
Bob Mudge

Great American

Cleanup needs
volunteers

FROM SARASOTA
COUNTY
GOVERNMENT

Keep Sarasota County
Beautiful is asking volun-
teers to join forces for the
2009 Great American
Cleanup from 8 a.m.-
noon on Saturday, April
18, at sites throughout
the county. In case of
rain, the cleanup will be
held Saturday, April 25.
According to Sandra
Washington, manager of
Keep Sarasota County
Beautiful, the Great
American Cleanup is a
fun, educational way to
protect Sarasota's natural
beauty. It is also the
nation's largest annual
community improve-
ment program, where an
estimated 3 million vol-
unteers in more than
17,000 communities par-
ticipate in 30,000 im-
provement activities and
educational workshops
to clean local parks, wa-
terways, trails, sidewalks
and streets.
Washington said that
in its 23rd year, the Great
American Cleanup con-
tinues to make a lasting
impact by creating a
cleaner, safer and more
beautiful environment.
The 2009 Great Amer-
ican Cleanup is made
possible locally through
the generous support of
corporate sponsors, in-
cluding Glad Bag, Village
Caf6, Waste Manage-
ment, ReMax Platinum
Realty and Arm & Ham-
mer.
For more information
about how to sponsor
this year's cleanup, or to
volunteer, visit www.
scgov.net, or contact the
Sarasota County Call
Center at 861-5000.


According M
to the most
recent survey by the U.S.
SCenters for Disease Control
and Prevention, children are
five times more likely to use
"alternative treatments" such
as chiropractic if a parent or
other relative did. The study also
pointed out that more than a third
of adults use alternative treatments,
which is about the same amount that
a 2002 survey reported. The survey
mentioned that women are the most
likely to use alternative medicine, and
That the most common reason that
adults turned to therapies such as
massage and chiropractic was back pain.
Many of those surveyed indicated that
They experienced difficulty getting
back-pain relief from mainstream
medicine. Apparently, people search
out the most effective treatments on
their own.


P.S. Now that chiropractors can be
found in general hospitals, it is
increasingly becoming questionable
as to whether chiropractic can be
labeled an "alternative treatment."

Cleveland Museum of Art reopens


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

In Cleveland, detours
are not just for pothole
paving.
Over at University Cir-
cle, the largest collection
of detour signs may well
be within the Cleveland
Museum of Art.
Closed for more than a
year, the famous muse-
um is in the throes of a
massive six-year building
program that will more
than double its space.
Recently reopened, de-
spite the construction,
the museum offers one
giant "art detour" to visi-
tors.
Ground was broken in
2005 and by January of
2006, the museum closed
for some six months,
sending employees off to
another building and the
gift shop in another
neighborhood entirely.
Modern masters in the
museum's collection went
on a world tour, and
Clevelanders had to get
their museum fix in the
neighboring museums at
University Circle.
Six months later the
education wing reopen-
ed and then in October,
some special exhibitions
and the expanded park-
ing garage opened while
a new central utility plant
was created.
One year after con-
struction began, updat-
ing of the original 1916
portion of the museum
was completed and cura-
tors began reinstalling
artwork.
When I was there a
week ago, the south gal-
leries were open. Filled
with American art circa
1700-1920, some Euro-
pean art circa 1600-1820,
including Dutch and
French works, and the
Faberge collection and
Art of the Goldsmith.
These are all items I grew
up with on countless
museum visits, so it was
comforting to see them
reinstalled in their reno-
vated space. Also open
was the Armor Court, the
rotunda (minus the old
wishing well fountain)
and what used to be the
atrium a space filled
with plants and benches.
That space is now a
gallery with a new par-
quet floor. The new atri-
um will be much larger,
quite contemporary in
design and is expected to
open in 2011.
"If you use that eleva-
tor in the corner," a mu-
seum guard said, "you
can get to the upper
level."


From its creation in 1916 until about four years ago, this area was an atrium, filled with plants.


The armor room looks better than ever now that its renova-
tion is complete.


My daughter, Heidi
Cool, and I did just that,
finding a balcony from
which to take photos of
the space and a glass
door that gave a view of
part of the museum's
archives.
The former cafe had
reopened temporarily to
the left of the main en-
trance, in what was once
the special exhibition
gallery. A guard nearby
said the dining room
would move several
more times and that the
space ultimately would
be used for offices.


We parked on the
entry level of the parking
garage, and took the ele-
vator up to the entrance
level on the University
Circle (north) side of the
building. The museum's
original front entrance
on the south side is tem-
porarily closed due to the
construction. Not much
more than the roof can
be seen by passersby.
What is obvious is that
the new addition is
reflective of the 1971
Marcel Breuer-designed
addition in the horizon-
tally striped granite face.


The difference is that the
new stripes are twice as
wide. My daughter told
me that the finish was
chosen to blend the first
addition on the north
side of the building to the
1916 facade of white
marble blocks, which has
a more subtle appearance
of horizontal stripes.
Heidi is on Cleveland's
Public Art board, which
puts her in the loop
about art projects all over
the city, including con-
struction projects such
as the museum.
The architect for the
museum addition is Ra-
fael Vinoly, who was se-
lected in 2001. His design
plan, as described on the
museum's Web site (www.
clevelandart.org), is bas-
ed on an engagement
ring, with the 1916 build-
ing as the jewel in the
ring. Demolition of the
1958 and 1983 additions
was part of the plan.
Using the north en-
trance, we were on the
opposite side of the ring,
as far from the jewel as
one could be. The east
wing is nearly complete.


Plans call for completion
of the west wing and the
remaining parts of Phase
II in three years.
For now, visitors fol-
low the giant yellow ar-
rows, denoting the de-
tour routes. In some
places, one can see
through thick glass walls
into what appear to be
completed galleries, al-
though they will not be
totally ready for visitors
for a few more months.
In one spot, three port
holes give a view of part
of the construction. In
another area, we found
ourselves in a glass-
enclosed walkway to the
1916 building and a view
toward the construction
of the new east wing,
which is nearing comple-
tion. The upper level of
the east wing is expected
to open later this year.
We did not find a map
until we were nearly
ready to leave, but the
detour signs did their job
and we didn't miss any of
the open galleries, nor
did we miss any of the
construction viewing
opportunities. Some of

The book that never closes


BENNETT GROSS
GUEST COLUMNIST

It was a time of great
uncertainty, not knowing
what tomorrow would
bring, only that it would
bring change.
Turn back the pages of
our biblical heritage and
that is the situation facing
Moses and the children of
Israel before their Exodus
from Egypt. God had
commanded them to leave
and had given them a
chance to throw off the
chains of bondage, a
chance to be free from the
tyranny of the pharaoh.
But there were doubts,
unanswered questions.
They had been slaves in
Egypt for 400 years living a
life that was predictable,
where there were no sur-
prises, only suffering. They
had endured, what did the
future hold for them?
In the Haggadah, the
book that recounts the
story of Passover that the
Jewish people read on the
first night of the holiday, it
is said: "In each genera-
tion, everyone must think
of himself or herself as


having personally left
Egypt." We are left to imag-
ine what went through
their minds.
When God command-
ed them to leave Egypt he
offered them freedom. Yet
what did freedom mean
to them except the free-
dom from their back-
breaking toil? "The offer
of freedom interrupted
their lives," says Rabbi
Bradley Artson in his book
"The Bedside Torah" as he
explores the Exodus and
its effects on the Jewish
people.
"To be free means being
able to choose, and also
means to be able to choose
from a confusing and para-
lyzing number of options.
Life would become more
interesting, but it would
never be so simple."
"We do not know with
what we are to worship the
Lord until we arrive there,"
Moses announces to
pharaoh. While he intends
to keep the pharaoh in the
dark as to where the
Jewish people will worship
God, Moses himself isn't
quite sure where the jour-
ney will lead either.
"Uncertain of where
they are going or what
they will do when they get
there," points out Rabbi
Artson, "the Hebrew slaves
have to be willing to live
with the burden of free-
dom the power to make
choices and to take
responsibility for those
choices."
Each of us in our own
way arrives at similar


Young and old



celebrate Passover


PROVIDED BY CHABAD
OF VENICE & NORTH PORT

The Chabad Jewish Center of
Venice & North Port presented a
Model Matzah Bakery for their
Hebrew school children last week.
In the Model Matzah Bakery, the
children, along with their parents
and friends, learned how Shmurah
Matzah is made literally from
"scratch," all under the direction of
Rabbi Sholom Schmerling, direc-
tor of Chabad.
Passover commemorates the
exodus of the Jews from Egypt
and will be celebrated with festive
Seder dinners on April 8 and 9 at


the Chabad Jewish Center, 2169
South Tamiami Trail in Venice.
This year's community Passover
Seder features discussion about
Passover, excellent food and joy-
ous singing. Rabbi Schmerling
will facilitate the intergenera-
tional program. Other holiday
observances include restricting
the consumption of leavened
products such as bread and
pasta, instead eating unleavened
matzah.
The eight-day festival of
Passover is celebrated this year
from sundown on Wednesday,
April 8, until after nightfall on
Thursday, April 16.


crossroads where we are
faced with change and
have to leave the comfort
zone of where we have
been and face the chal-
lenges and opportunities
of new possibilities. It
takes courage to rethink
old ways of doing things,
to let freedom ring in our
minds as well as our
hearts. Yet there is a guid-
ing principle that has
come down through the
ages, following the path
of humanity, a path of
goodness and giving, of
caring for and about each
other.
When God sent Moses
down from Mount Sinai,
God gave Moses two
tablets. Why? The answer
as explained in the Talmud
is because God wanted us
to know about the true
meaning of religion. The
first tablet revolves around
laws between man and
God. The second tablet is
about our ethical practices
toward our fellow human
beings. How we treat them
is just as religious a state-
ment as how we worship
God. Do we practice what
we preach?
No matter how difficult
or demanding the times,
the sense of community
remains. It is the founda-
tion of civilization as we
know it. In that respect,
the book that we live by
never closes. Shalom.

Bennett Gross is a mem-
ber of the Jewish Center of
Venice and is active in com-
munity Interfaith activities.

ederal, state and
local governments
have been working
around-the-clock to
bolster the economy with
new programs and
initiatives. Two new tax
credits expand and
improve previous
programs and are worth a


Q: Who is eligible?
A: The $8,000 tax credit is
available for "first-time"
home buyers only. That's
someone who has not
owned a principal
residence during the
three years prior to the
purchase. If you owned a
home three or more years
ago, but haven't had your
name on a deed since
then, you probably
qualify.

Q: Does it have to be
repaid?
A: Not unless you sell the
home within three years
of purchase.
Q: Are there income
limits to qualify for the
credit?
A: Yes. Generally, though,


singles earning less than
$75,000 and couples
earning less than
$150,000 will qualify. If
you earn more than that,
you may still qualify for a
partial tax credit.

Q: What are the dates for
the tax credit?
A: The credit applies to
home purchases between
January 1, 2009 and
before December 1, 2009.
You must close on the
sale of the home during
this period.

Q: Is the tax credit
refundable?
A: Yes. A refundable credit
means that if you pay less
than $8,000 in federal
income taxes, then the
government will write
you a check for the
difference. For example, if
you owe $5,000 in federal
income taxes, you would
pay nothing to the IRS
and receive a $3,000
payment from the


government.
If you are due to receive
a $1,000 tax refund from
the government, your
refund would grow to
$9,000.

FOR HOMEOWNERS:
AN EXPANDED
ENERGY EFFICIENCY
HOME IMPROVEMENT
TAX CREDIT
Q: What kind of home
improvements qualify?
A: Homeowners can
recoup 30 percent of their
costs (up to $1,500) in the
newly expanded tax
credit when replacing
windows, doors, HVAC
systems, water heaters
and certain types of roofs
for greater energy-
efficiency in existing
homes.

Q: When does this go
into effect?
A: This tax credit will be
available for 2009 and


2010.

Q: Are there tax credits
for making energy
efficient choices during
construction of a new
home?
A: Yes and, for these
upgrades, the credit is 30
percent of the costs
without an upper limit.
Eligible energy efficient
options include solar
panels, solar water
heaters, small wind
energy systems and other
alternative energy
upgrades.

Q: Where can home-
owners find more
information on this
program?
A: At www.energystar.gov
/taxcredits there's more
information on what
types of improvements
qualify and how to claim
the credits.

For first-time home
buyers, the $8,000 credit


is a real slam dunk.
Combined with histori-
cally low interest rates
and bargain basement
pricing on existing and
new home inventories, it
could be a once-in-a-
lifetime opportunity to
get a head start on all of
the benefits of homeown-
ership.
For homeowners, the
energy efficiency tax
credit is likely just a
beginning. Sustainability,
"green" and energy
efficiency are buzzwords
that are finding their way
into bills on Capitol Hill,
legislation in Tallahassee
and ordinances on
Murdock Circle. The real
win-win for homeowners
with programs like the tax
credit is that the savings
is two-part. Homeowners
can enjoy the tax savings
to recoup some of costs
of the improvements and
enjoy savings for years to
come in lower utility bills.

Keller Presents to the Punta Gorda-Port Charlotte-North Port
Women's Council of Realtors
The monthly "WCR" meeting was held on April 1st at the Association of Realtors
office. Featured speaker was Kay Keller, Asst. Vice-President and Commercial
Lender, Florida Community Bank. The topic was "Attracting New Business in a
Lagging Economy". Keller, who was formerly a national speaker/trainer for many
major corporations, gave an engaging presentation that included topical information
to challenge the thought processes in the current economic conditions. Some ideas
presented were how to overcome "stinking thinking", what type of networker are
you? fake, shallow or genuine! and referral information and tips. The speaker's ref-
erences were included in the materials handed out so that the attendees could obtain
them if they desired. For more information on WCR and how to attend the meetings,
please contact Linda Mazner, 941-205-2128.
