Keys considering

more autonomy


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

Sarasota County's authority
is under siege from two of its
four barrier islands.
A bill filed with the state
Legislature by Casey Key to
allow it to incorporate as a
municipality awaits commit-
tee action. Siesta Key is consid-
ering duplicating such a step,
10 years after first considering
doing so.
Both communities have
expressed dissatisfaction with
the services they receive from
the county.
Casey Key resident Michael
France told a meeting of his
neighbors on March 30 that a
committee formed to study
incorporation was com- posed
of individuals "who believe
that because of the county's
ever-increasing restrictions on
personal property rights,
incorporating the key might
provide significant benefits ...
of options to decisions about
our properties."
A letter written by "nine
concerned citizens" to County
Commissioner Jon Thaxton
five years earlier to the day


registered the same com-
plaints.The signees, five of
whom were past presidents of
the Casey Key Association,
echoed France's hope.
They wrote of their concern
about the county's role in
proposing and enacting regu-
lations "that have resulted in
an erosion of homeowners'
rights on Casey Key, piecemeal
destruction of its ambiance
and livability ...."
One of the signees, Arthur
Urciuoli, reiterated at last
month's meeting in Nokomis
his objection to staff-initiated
proposals, upon which the let-
ter urged Thaxton to impose a
moratorium.
Urciuoli last month repeat-
ed his objection to a "county
staff with an aggressive mind-
set that burdens us with
unwanted, unneeded and
costly legislation serving no
demonstrated general good."
Frustrated
Siesta Key Association pres-
ident Lourdes Ramirez has
similar complaints about pro-
posals initiated by county staff.

School staff cuts likely


BY ANNE
KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER


Although no pink slips have
been issued yet, the Sarasota
County school district has
informed some employees
that their positions may not
exist for the 2009-10 school
year.
According to Scott Fer-
guson, the school board's com-
munications specialist, "320 is
in the ballpark" of the number
of positions that may be elimi-
nated. Some are teachers; oth-
ers are aides, custodians, sec-
retaries, bus drivers and addi-
tional support staff.
"But that doesn't mean
there will be 320 people on the
street," he said, adding that
there are a number of posi-
tions that may be cut within
the school district that are cur-
rently vacant or filled by tem-
porary personnel. "We call it
surplusing when a job goes
away. But people will be shift-


ed around, people will be
offered other jobs and they
might have to do additional
training. Last year, we had to
do this and, fortunately, every-
one had a job who wanted
one."
This year, however, admin-
istrators don't know if every-
one who would like a position
will be able to have one. The
district faces strict budget cuts
and the school board, along
with Superintendent Lori
White, has been working for
months to trim more than $40
million from the budget.
Members knew in February
that more than 300 positions
could be on the chopping
block.
'Serious'
Some of the cuts about 80
positions will result from an
end to block scheduling at the
high-school level. A seven-
period day will replace it.

The Golden Beach neigh-
borhood on the island has
become the focus of litigation
over short-term rentals in the
city of Venice.
Stephen Milo is suing the
city for lost income of a dozen
Golden Beach Homes he pur-
chased, after the city ruled in a
zoning determination three
years ago they're not allowed
in single-family residential
neighborhoods. That ruling
was overturned by a judge.
A jury trial was scheduled in
a few weeks but attorneys rep-
resenting both sides recently
requested the trial be resched-
uled to October.
Milo's attorney hired an
appraiser who came up a loss
value of $2.5 million for a


dozen island properties, saying
Milo's rights are protected
under the Bert Harris Private
Property Rights Protection Act.
Meanwhile, the city is work-
ing on a new regulation, which
Milo's attorneys have threat-
ened to challenge as well,
allowing short-term rentals in
neighborhoods with multi-
family housing, but not single-
family residences. That could
come before the planning
commission in May, then to
council.
In recent depositions, Milo's
attorney Richard Rumrell said
his client's properties in Gold-
en Beach were singled out and
actions, like visits by code
enforcement and inspections
by building code officials, were
selectively enforced on Milo's
properties.
City Attorney Bob Anderson


said in a legal filing the case is
moot since the zoning deter-
mination itself wasn't en-
forced.
"Plaintiffs in their allegation
failed to mention one signifi-
cant fact. The city did not take
any enforcement action based
on the zoning determination
or any other property owner,"
Anderson said.
"Targeted"
While there have been in-
formal complaints to council
members, Milo said his prop-
erties have never been issued a
citation by building code or
code enforcement officials for
noise, trash or parking viola-
tions. The zoning determina-
tion by itself, said Rumrell in
legal filings, hampered efforts

Impasse in SCAT negotiations


SUN PHOTO BY ED SCOTT, ESCOTT@SUN-HERALD.COM
Protesters with Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1701 stand near the main Sarasota County Area Transit
terminal Thursday afternoon in downtown Sarasota. The demonstration for SCAT bus drivers is in response
to contract negotiations that both sides say have reached an impasse. The latest wage proposal is for
salaries to be frozen the first year, with increases of 3 percent the second and third years.


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER


Members of Amalgamated
Transit Union Local 1701 pick-
eted Thursday at the two
Sarasota County Area Transit
events marking SCAT's 30th
anniversary.
The demonstrations by
union workers for SCAT bus
drivers were in response to
contract negotiations that
both sides say have reached an


impasse. The union's most
recent contract with Sarasota
County ended Sept. 30.
Information released Wed-
nesday by the county states
Sarasota County sent a letter to
the union and to the Florida
Public Employees Relations
Commission declaring an im-
passe. Union president Tony
Gonzalez said Greg Rauen, the
union negotiator from ATU
International in Washington,
D.C., had declared the talks at


an impasse on April 1.
However, to comply with
Florida Statute 447.403 regard-
ing the resolution of an im-
passe, a letter declaring the sit-
uation must be sent to the
other party and to the com-
mission. The next step in nego-
tiations is to secure a mediator,
with Gonzalez saying it should
be a joint decision.

Firefighters create moment of happiness


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR


As the snowbirds prepare to
leave the area for their homes
in the north, many of them
hold end-of-season parties.
That's the case at the Lyons
Cave Condos in Nokomis.
Edmund Marcinkiewicz,
however, was going to miss the
pool party. He came to the
condo in December suffering
from prostate cancer.
"I had not been out of the
condo since then," he said.
When Barbara Swan, anoth-
er snowbird vacationing at
Lyons Cover, heard the wheel-
chair-bound Marcinkiewicz
wanted to attend their party,
she took matters into her own
hands.

Please see CREATE, 9A


Lyons Cove Condo resident Edmund Marcinkiewicz is surrounded by
Nokomis volunteer firefighters Lt. Raymond Coyle, left, Capt. Dave
White, Molly Land, Lt. Victor Cleveland and Alex Davenport after they
carried Marcinkiewicz from his second floor condo to a pool party.

Walkers have fun, fitness and fellowship


BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER
If miles walked equates to health
and fitness, the Saturday Morning
Walkabout Group has to be in extra-
ordinary condition.
Last Saturday morning the group
eclipsed the 10,000 mile mark for
cumulative miles walked. In celebra-
tion of this milestone, we walked over
to Grace United Methodist Church for
one of its scrumptious breakfasts.
Every Saturday morning at 8 for
the past four years the group has met
at Volunteer Park, located behind the
Gulf Coast Community Foundation
of Venice building, to walk 2.5 miles
along the scenic Venetian Waterway
Park. Some walk at a brisk pace while
others approach the walk with a more
leisurely attitude. All enjoy the walk
and conversation, however. Pets are

County honors

9-1-1 operators

FROM SARASOTA COUNTY
The week of April 12-18 has been
declared Public Safety Telecommunica-
tions Week by the Sarasota County
Commission.
The proclamation recognizes the daily
service that public safety telecommunica-
tors provide to residents.
The proclamation acknowledges the
dedication of the men and women who
operate emergency response systems for
state and local governments. The procla-
mation also recognizes governmental
communications service for forestry and
conservation operations, highway safety
and other governmental activities.
The following are some tips for using
the 9-1-1 service:
9-1-1 is only for emergencies only.
Call 9-1-1 if someone is hurt or in danger,
or if you need police, fire or medical assis-
tance.
Don't call 9-1-1 for nonemergency sit-
uations or for information. Inappropriate
use of the 9-1-1 system wastes resources
and ties up the lines at the 9-1-1 center.
Knowing your location is the most
important information you can provide
when you call 9-1-1. Be as detailed as pos-
sible. If you don't know the street address,
find landmarks or cross streets. In a large
building or one with multiple levels, help
emergency services by telling them which
floor, office or apartment you are in.
Answer all of the 9-1-1 operator's
questions. Providing complete informa-
tion helps get service to you faster.
If you call 9-1-1 by accident, or the sit-
uation is no longer an emergency, let the
9-1-1 operator know that. If you hang up,
the 9-1-1 operator may call you back or
send help. This will take away from the 9-
1-1 center's ability to take calls and dis-
patch services for other emergencies.
The call taker can dispatch respon-
ders to your location without disconnect-
ing from the call, so remain on the line so
you can provide information or assistance
to the 9-1-1 operator.
For more information, call 861-5000, or
visit www.scgov.net.

Short delay in bridge work


no help for local restaurant


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS
COLUMNIST

At their meeting this
week Sarasota County
commissioners agreed
to an 18-day delay in
the start of repairs to
the historic Blackburn
Point Road swing bridge
in Osprey.
However, the deci-
sion likely will not pre-
vent a popular local
restaurant and tiki bar
from closing.
"I will probably be
closing my restaurant
and putting more than
30 people out of a job as
a result of the decision,"
said Jimmy VanHubert,


owner of Casey Key Fish
House & Tiki Bar, Black-
burn Point Road.
Following staff pre-
sentations, commis-
sioners decided the
road would be closed
for bridge repairs from
May 18 to June 18.
Contractors will raise
the bridge from its
anchors and replace
mechanical parts.
Requests were made
by VanHubert and local
residents for the work,
originally planned to
commence May 1, to be
delayed even longer.
VanHubert's request to
delay it until September
was rejected because of
the concerns over evac-


uation in the event of a
hurricane. Also, the con-
tractor would want addi-
tional money for putting
the bridge back in place
under such circum-
stances.
"It is the weekend
before Memorial Day
and the busiest part of
summer season," said
VanHubert in explain-
ing his request.
The only way on and
off Casey Key during
the monthlong bridge
project will be the
Albee Road Bridge, at
the opposite end of the
key from VanHubert's
restaurant.

Beer on tap Tuesday at city hall


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Keeping the beer flow-
ing after a round of golf
- that's on tap at city hall
this Tuesday.
One of the less contro-
versial items anticipated
on the April 14 agenda is
a request for council to
give its consent to allow
Lake Venice Golf Club to
reinstate its beer license.
A temporary license
expires the next day, April
15, unless the city gives
its OK.
It's been operating
under the temporary
license ever since the
death of the golf club's
longtime president Don-
ald Shrode last year.
Shrode's replacement
didn't mail the Venice
Golf Association's annual
corporate renewal card
and $150 fee in to the
Department of Business
and Professional Regula-
tion, which resulted in
the loss of the beer
license, according to doc-
umentation filed with the
city.


Technically the VGA
was dissolved for two
days until its corporation
status was renewed. But
the beer license was a
different matter. State
law requires that every-
one who owns 0.05 of its
stock and its officers and
directors be fingerprint-
ed and undergo an FBI
criminal background
check. That would have
involved more than a few
dozen members, many
of whom live out of state.
The beverage depart-
ment, however, allows
entities to form a new
corporation with as few
as five members, accord-
ing to VGA's attorney,
Dan Boone. Boone com-
pleted the paperwork for
a new 1 COP (consump-
tion on premises) license
that only allows for the
sale and consumption of
beer. A new corporation
named VGA 19th Hole
Inc. was formed.
The club learned it
couldn't sell beer shortly
before the Nov. 4, 2008,
city council election. That
didn't stop the beer from


flowing. But it was free at
Kit McKeon's victory
party on election night
because the club couldn't
legally sell the beverage. It
immediately filed for a
temporary license.
The clubhouse has
been serving beer for
more than 48 years.
Other business
Also on Tuesday's
agenda:
Consideration of an
interlocal agreement to
provide building depart-
ment services.
Final recording of
covenants regarding the
transfer of Legacy Park to
the city in perpetuity.
Approval of a grant
request from Caribbean
Conservation Corp. Sea
Turtle Grants Program.
The city is requesting
$5,647 to install new 360-
degree light shields for
lights that threaten hatch-
ling disorientation. Lights
will be retrofitted at the
South Jetty parking lot
and Venice Fishing Pier.
Consideration of
the Environmental Task
Force's recommendation
to support pending legis-
lation that would require
the department of health,
whenever it issues an
advisory against swim-
ming in beach waters, to
require the department of
environmental protection
to promptly investigate
wastewater treatment
facilities within 1 mile of
the affected beach. DEP
will determine if the facili-
ty may have contributed
to the contamination.
Results would be trans-
mitted back to the affect-
ed municipality or county.

In tough times, go with what you know


T he famous Roto-Rooter compa-
ny was founded in 1935, during
the Great Depression, in West
Des Moines, Iowa, by Samuel Oscar
Blanc, who had to quit school in the
fifth grade after his father committed
suicide.
He worked as a logger and tele-
phone linesman, then in sales. During
the Depression he took on odd jobs.
One day his son, Milton, asked him to
help unclog a sewer line blocked with
potato peelings. They cleared it with a
piece of flexible metal cable.
Having taken a correspondence
course in electrical and mechanical
engineering, Blanc created an elec-
tric-powered drain-cleaning device
with a rotating steel coil and blades
that broke through blockages.
Because it cut roots in the pipe, his
wife suggested the name Roto-Rooter.
The company was formed in 1936.
Scientist Edwin Land founded
Polaroid Corporation in 1937 after
resolving a "unsolvable" problem -


polarizing light without the use of a
large mineral crystal.
During World War II, the company
invented a variety of products,
including a tank-gunner sighting sys-
tem and polarized goggles for airmen.
In 1947, Land began producing his
instant camera.
Ladisla Biro, who worked for a
newspaper in Budapest, Hungary,
noted that printers ink dried quickly
but was too thick to use in a tradition-
al fountain pen. So with the help of
his brother, George, who was a
chemist, Biro developed and patent-
ed the first ballpoint pen, in Paris in
1938.
In the 1930s, Ruth Wakefield and
her husband ran a Depression-era
restaurant, the Toll House Inn, in
Whitman, Mass. Known for her sugar
cookies, she offered them with every
meal.
One day she chopped up chocolate
and put it in her cookies. The Toll
House cookie was born. Nestle gave


her free chocolate in exchange for
putting the recipe on its package.
Laterm Nestle sold cookies by the
thousands.
When Dick and Mac McDonald
founded their hamburger stand in
1940, then sold out to a 52-year-old
mixer salesman, Ray Kroc, neither
imagined it would become behemoth
corporation. Enough said.
During the late 1970s and early
1980s the nation faced an "economic
dysfunction." The Federal Deposit
insurance Corporation reports in
1981 the prime interest rate hit a
record 21.5 percent. Before the infla-
tionary era ended, unemployment
approached 11 percent.
Yet Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield
opened an ice cream shop in a reno-
vated gas station in downtown
Burlington, Vt., on May 5, 1978, after
they finished a Pennsylvania State
University $5 correspondence course
on how to make the cool treat. Their
success story is well known.


So what could you invent to set
yourself up for life? How about a way
to get rid of armadillos?
Dried coyote urine is sold to keep
deer, rabbits and squirrels at bay. Some
claim it will keep armadillos from dig-
ging up the lawn. We have tried it and
remain skeptical.
Possibly you and a friend can invent
a small battery that will carry a car 100
miles or more without plugging in. Or a
better way to deal with fire ants.
Others learned to meet a need, or
found a problem they could solve. You
might gain courage by reading a
Thomas Edison biography.
Are you going to go from rags to
riches overnight? Of course not. The
lesson here is to take something you
know how to do and find a way to
make it something other people will
pay you for, even if it's just for a little
extra cash.
And you never know you might
stumble on the NEXT BIG THING in
the process.


Get over it!


MARY KAY RUPPEL
COLUMNIST

Someone once told
me to choose your battles
carefully. That's what this
is about.
President Obama has
accepted an invitation to
give the commencement
address at Notre Dame
on May 17. My fellow
conservatives are up in
arms over this and de-
manding that his invite
be rescinded.
Come on, get over it.
It's a done deal.
Out of respect, I'm cer-
tain that President Oba-
ma's speech will not get
into abortion and stem
cell research. On the
other hand, Notre Dame,
a Catholic college, invit-
ing Obama is about as
ridiculous as it would be
if Planned Parenthood
invited Gov. Sarah Palin
to speak. If I were paying
tuition for a student, I'd
pull him out.
I have something
much more interesting to
tell you that the Notre
Dame incident reminded
me of.
When I was in high
school in Detroit, I
was introduced to twins,
Harry and Brian Kelly, the
sons of Gov. Kelly. I saw
Brian, a Notre Dame stu-
dent, on a few occasions
and he was very hand-
some and a lot of fun. He
called me last-minute
one New Year's Eve to go
out with him. Because of
false pride, I told him I
had a date, which I didn't.
How stupid!
Eventually, Brian's
good looks and charm
got him to Hollywood.
Remember? He played
the dad on "Flipper" for
quite a while. Sadly, Brian
left this mortal coil a cou-
ple of years ago. His
health never actually was
good following a terrible
motorcycle accident that
virtually ruined his acting
career.
For years, I have chas-
tised myself for not going
out with him that New
Year's. Self, get over it!
I want to make it clear
that there are some
decent environmental-
ists. These comments are
directed at the doomsday
fanatics.


Our own city council
member, Sue Lang,
wants to green up Venice
and has introduced some
actions to begin the pro-
cess. Beware, fellow Ven-
etians, I read the propos-
al thoroughly and we
will pay for this goofus
plan by an increase in our
utilities bill's recycling
charges.
To wacko environ-
mentalists I say that this
earth has been here for
hundreds of millions of
years. I believe in cre-
ation, not some haphaz-
ard, random selection
process. God gave us this
earth and God will take
away this earth if and
when he chooses. To the
people who are pre-
sumptuous enough to
believe that we mortals
can destroy the most
magnificent creation of
the entire universe, I say,
get over it!
I am ambivalent about
the legalization of "soft"
drugs, i.e., cannabis. I
have this feeling that if
the criminal element is
eliminated from marijua-
na use, it would be better.
Then the other side of
the argument is that soft
drug use leads to hard
drug use. It's a perplexing
problem, and President
Obama has already come
out against the legaliza-
tion of marijuana. How-
ever, when my sister,
Barbara, was suffering
those final pangs of in-
curable cancer, her doc-
tor prescribed an evening
"cocktail" that was a
combination of mor-
phine and cocaine. The
druggist told us not to let
people know what we
were carrying in the bag
lest we get our heads
beaten in.
Anyway, I don't really
see a problem with
"medical marijuana."
Unless someone can give
me a really good reason
not to have this drug
available for suffering
humans, I say, get over it!
To people who seem
to be getting gratification
from seeing our automo-
bile industry reduced to
begging and pleading for
mercy, I caution that we
do not want the govern-
ment running General
Motors. I am sorry that
the CEO stepped down
so easily. I think he was
just tired and glad to
leave the problem to
someone else.
I would like to remind
the ilk that just automati-
cally hate "big business"
and their leaders that the

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Don't just complain


Editor:
The new members of Venice City Council were
elected by a landslide because the Venice residents
didn't like what the old administration was doing to
the town.
They were elected on the platform that they would
keep the old-time ambiance that we moved to Venice
for: no more high-rises, responsible growth only. Keep
the airport small, limit the disturbance made by the
jets. I voted for them. I am pleased with their accom-
plishments.
There is a hateful person who lives in this town. His
venom regularly spills over into the Let'em Have It
column of this newspaper. He never gives his name.
He always attacks anonymously. Wednesday's col-
umn was filled with his hate.
He didn't come to the council meeting to voice his
complaints against the mayor and vice mayor of
Venice or to sing his praises of Vicki Taylor. He has
never run for city council (or has he)?
Why is it that only Golden Beach residents seem to
run for council? Anyone who lives in the city ofVenice
can throw their hat into the ring. It's time for all you
complainers to put your money where your mouth is.
After all, the last two mayors of Venice did not live
in Golden Beach.

Now is not the
time for cuts
Editor:
The panic our politi-
cians are displaying in an
attempt to reverse this
crushing economy has
brought panic into our
personal lives.
Tallahassee has re-
ported that domestic vio-
lence has risen 40 per-
cent in the state of
Florida. The Department
of Children and Family
Services calls this situa-
tion "the worst in years."
The combination of
high unemployment, fi-
nancial stress and part-
ners spending more time

Although there has
been a rise in men being
battered, women remain
the majority.
Many women during
the court process lose
income and transporta-

medical attention. Many
are forced out of their

Financial retaliation
from the abuser for
"making that phone call"

We like some old things to be old


Leave it alone. Hands off the North Jetty fish
camp. We like it just the way it is: quaint, old and nat-
ural. The area already has restrooms. We surely don't
want a meeting room. It's a big park. Put it someplace
else. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Hands off the old trol-
ley car. Why do you think 344,000 people visit there?
It's because it is just the way it is. Leave it alone. Why
do we have to modernize everything?


Self-service. It is un-
believable that Judge
Bennett allowed the set-
tlement of the lawsuit,
especially after reading
the statements and the
testimony of the previous
city manager, reading the
e-mails that were admit-
ted and the fact that the
members involved could
have had more instruc-
tion of the Sunshine Law.
It's just very sad. It's clear
that the city attorney
works for them and not
for the city and the peo-
ple. When you look at the
arrogance and the self-
serving defendants, you
just sort of get sick. I hope
this city can survive these
three people.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Settling
a civil lawsuit is a preroga-
tive of the parties. Bennett

Editor:
For years now the
defense budget has been
too high and based on
threats we no longer face.
This unnecessary ex-
pense takes away from
services that the people
in this country really
need, such as health and
education services.
I support the scaling
back of a variety of pro-
grams, including missile
defense, the F-22 and
the DDG-1000 destroyer.
There are further cuts that
could be made, but I sup-
port the effort to try to start
turning the priorities
around at the Pentagon.

we could house inmates
in tents. We would still
need a site to do that, but
it would be a whole lot
cheaper than building a
jail. I think that would be
a great idea, and then
these inmates could do
work to pay for their
keep. That would be for
nonviolent inmates. We
could keep the violent
ones in jail. Also, there's a
program that Sheriff
Knight has applied for
which means we could
deport some of the illegal
immigrants currently in
our jail. So, it's very possi-
ble that by the time we
start construction, the
number of inmates being
housed could go down. I
think we need to hold off
a little bit and plan on the
tent city to take care of
the overflow at this par-
ticular time or as a per-
manent thing. We don't

mayor is very difficult to
understand. He seems to
spend a great deal of time
coddling developers, the
chamber of commerce.
When a meeting is over,
he rushes like crazy to the
back of the room to talk
to the Venice Jet Center's
receiver or other people
who are involved in sell-
ing the jet center. The
receiver will not answer
direct questions; he
directs everything to his
Web site. He won't tell us
who are the investors in
this limited liability com-
pany, which is very ger-
mane to our problems;
and by in large, is most
reluctant to give us any
information about the
people who want to buy
the jet center. I don't
know why our mayor
is apologizing to the
Boones, apologizing to
people who want to rip
off the city, trying to be
Mr. Nice Guy and run-
ning ineffective meetings
where he's so busy trying
to conciliate everybody
that he can't steer a direct
course forward.

find out why members of

fits for themselves and
their families after leav-

ple are unable to either
get health insurance or
cannot afford it that it is
arrogant for council

why only Milo's proper-

Because a vocal group of

the answer. Milo report-

Changing the mid-

from a six- to a seven-

identified as a cost-sav-

role, in that less money
is coming to the district
from the state.
A total of 215 teach-


KEYS from Page lA

The association support-
ed a 2007 ruling of the
12th Circuit Court that
the county should not
have disallowed a density
called for in an island
zoning ordinance in
force since 1954 on
parcels created in 1925.
'A lot of us are frustrat-
ed by the county's errors
in Siesta Key matters,"
Ramirez said. "We think
they bend the rules, and
violate the county com-
prehensive plan."
A 1999 poll of Siesta
Key Association mem-
bers turned up 76 per-


owners association, but
was turned down.
Former mayor Fred
Hammett and current
Council Member John
Moore were asked simi-
lar questions.
Rumrell produced a
list of properties that he
says were "targeted." The
list was originally drawn
up by Black as being
those identified by Gold-
en Beach residents as
troublesome. It included
only Milo's properties. It
was later revised a cou-
ple times.

incorporate. But 10 years
later, the "no" vote was
only 35 percent, she said.
"Many of our resi-
dents are growing tired of
the county ignoring our
rules, and finding ways
to go around them
instead of fixing prob-
lems," Ramirez said.
She said that Siesta
Key's population is about
4 percent of the county's.
"Yet, we pay 10 per-
cent of the total property
tax and one-third of the
bed tax," she said. "What

said the list was intended
to be illustrative of a city
wide problem and said
they initially weren't
aware all the properties
were owned by Milo.
While that may be
true, Rumrell said during
Black's deposition, that's
not what the evidence
shows.
He questioned
whether several of the
council members, who
own rental properties,
were unbiased when
they overturned an Aug-
ust 2006 planning com-
mission ruling that said


about the possibilities
earlier in the year to give
them more time to plan.
And while no one has
been handed a pink slip
yet, the situation is "cer-
tainly serious."
"We don't discount
that, but there are going
to be some options for
many of those people.
Whether they elect to go
with those options is

Key? What do we lose in
county services if we
incorporate?"
Ramirez expects the
association will decide
on incorporation in
another year. First, she
wants to hire a consul-
tant to review the infor-
mation gathered 10 years
ago by a previous consul-
tant, and examine asso-
ciation records
State law governing
incorporation requires a
60 percent "yes" vote by
the key's 12,000 full-time
residents. Rep. Doug


Slaughter's original zon-
ing determination was
flawed. Anderson quer-
ied each to determine if
they could act on the
matter.
Recently uncovered e-
mails also play into the
case. One, from Council
Member Sue Lang to
Moore before Lang was
elected to council, shows
bias against Milo, Rum-
rell said during one of
the depositions. The e-
mails are part of the rea-

"We're putting the infor-

people will know that
their position may be
going away. The posi-
tion they may be in now
may be eliminated, but
there will also be vacan-
cies."

Holder, who filed the
Casey Key legislation, has
discussed state require-
ments for incorporation
with the association.
Both keys are in his dis-
trict.
Ramirez said that
since 2001 she has been
tracking discrepancies in
those county actions that
ignore Siesta Key regula-
tions.
"I have long felt that
county staff doesn't
appreciate our special
needs," she observed.
"We are not like the
mainland."

A mediation effort
between Milo and the
city resulted in impasse
on March 19, 2009.
"A different issue"
Also being explored is
whether a racial motive
could have played a role
in restricting the rentals.
Some of the original
complaints were about
workers who rented the
homes, some of whom
were Hispanic or African
American.
In a July 7, 2006 e-mail
to council, Milo said it
was important to deter-


mine what the real issue
is with neighbor's con-
cerns.
"If it is concerns about
noise, trash or parking,
then once again ... I am
committed to amend or
clarifying existing laws."
"If this is a concern
about the type of people
who the weekly renter
attracts (working fami-
lies, protected racial
classes, etc.) than that is
a very different issue."

time in scoring against the
Rams and taking care of their
inability to throw strikes.
Rex Ingerick and Joe lorio
started the game with back-
to-back walks off Riverview
starter Griffin Valentich, who
threw eight straight balls.
James Browning followed with
a double over the left fielder's
head scoring two runs.
Riverview (10-9) pulled
within a run with runs in the
first and second innings.
Venice padded its lead

inning. Mike Geers' single

Venice scored a run in the
fourth on a RBI single by
Tellor.
"I talked to them about
having fun playing the game,"
said Venice head coach Craig
Faulkner. "Let's make it fun.
When you are working so hard
and working since August
and your record is what it is,
it wears on you a little bit.
You start dreading coming


out here because you are
struggling."
The Indians went ahead 8-
4 with two runs in the fifth
inning on a two-run single by
Iorio.
In the sixth inning, Venice
concluded the scoring with
four runs on two hits, two

Indians have good showing at Pepsi Florida Relays


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


The Venice High boys track and field
team got to show the rest of the state their
strength in the 65th annual Pepsi Florida
Relays on April 4 at the University of
Florida's James G. Pressly Stadium at
Percy Beard Track.
The Indians picked up a second-,
third-, fourth- and 11th-place finish
against some of the best track and field
athletes in the state.
"Overall it was a pretty good experi-
ence," said Venice High boys coach Larry
Shannon. "Venice had a good showing.
The most valuable thing was experience
and running in a meet like that. Good
competition and the atmosphere of col-


lege meet was valuable for those guys."
The Indians' Ben Steele took second in
the shot put with a throw of 48 feet, 11
inches. Gainesville Eastside's Isaac Joseph
was first with a throw of 49-10. Six in the
competition fouled out.
"He was excited about his finish,"
Shannon said.
Venice's Dri Archer got a chance to
shine in the sprints.
Archer finished third in the 100-meter
dash with a time of 10.84 seconds.
Chamberlain's Dentarius Locke won the
event in 10.57 seconds. Cape Coral
Baker's Joseph Byrd was second in 10.74.
Archer, who won his heat, edged
Charlotte's Mike Bellamy, who was in
another heat, in 10.85 seconds.
"It was a really good experience for


him," Shannon said. "He won his heat
and had a really bad start. It was his worst
start of the year."
In the 4x200 relay, the team of Trey
Burton, Max Brandow, Robert Fordham
and Archer, who won its heat, grabbed a
fourth-place finish in 1 minute, 29.86 sec-
onds. Flagler Palm Coast won in 1:28.12
while Dillard was second in 1:28.38.
Baker was just ahead ofVenice in 1:29.43.
In the pole vault, senior Dan Medrano
grabbed 11th place with a height of 13 feet.
Five other athletes had the same height as
four finished in a tie for seventh place.
"Thirteen feet was the opening
height," Shannon said. "He cleared it but
couldn't get 13-6."

between the teams but the first
win for the Indians.
Sarasota 16, Venice 5
Against the Sailors, Venice fell
behind 5-0 after two innings as
Sarasota pounded out eight hits in
two innings.
The Indians got a run back in
the second inning on a RBI
groundout by Atamanchuk and
got within 6-4 by adding three runs
in the third inning.
In the third inning, Alec Stiver
slugged Venice's first home run on
the season by connecting on a 3-2
pitch and sending it over the left
field wall. After a strikeout, Iorio
singled and Browning doubled
over the center fielder's head to
score lorio. Browning came
around to score on a fielder's
choice by Geers.
Venice's pitching couldn't stop
Sarasota's hitters as the Sailors
scored runs in every inning.
It is the most runs allowed by
the Indians since a 13-2 loss to
Sarasota on March 26, 1999.
"We've got a lot guys some work
(pitching) but they are not quite
ready yet and it showed up today,"
Faulkner said. "We might have set
a record for hits (allowed). It's the
most hits we've given up since
we've been here (10 years)."
The first three hitters in
Sarasota's lineup accounted for 12
of 21 hits and eight RBI. Seniors
Scooter Gennett went 5-for-5 with
four RBI while Eric Williams was 4-
for-5 with a RBI. Garrett Custons,
the leadoff hitter, was 3-for-5 with
three RBI.
Venice's other run scored in the
sixth inning as Atamanchuk's dou-
ble scored Tellor, who led off with a
double.
Stiver paced Venice with two
hits while Atamanchuk had two
RBI.

Officials hoping for a boost from regionalism


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER


Back in 2005, when
officials at Sarasota Brad-
enton International Air-
port were seeking a fed-
eral grant for air service
development, Sarasota
and Manatee counties
each contributed $250,000
of tourism tax revenue
for advertising. The grant
was approved, resulting
in AirTran coming to the
airport, now with eight
daily flights.
"It was wonderful
and it resulted in great
economic opportunities
for the airport and the
community," said Fred
Piccolo, airport presi-
dent and chief execu-
tive officer.
The airport is a clas-
sic example of regional
cooperation. But local
governments typically do
not work together to gen-
erate economic growth
- to create and keep
jobs.
Governments in the
same county or the
same region often com-
pete against one anoth-
er when a business seeks
to relocate. Commissions
reduce their impact fees
to keep them in line with
a neighboring county, or
conduct branding cam-
paigns to help distin-
guish themselves from
their neighbors.
But regionalism can
create jobs, too.
No matter where
they live or work in the
area, most residents of
Southwest Florida have
been affected by the eco-
nomic downturn. Gary
Jackson, a Florida Gulf
Coast University pro-
fessor and director of
the Regional Economic
Research Institute, ex-
pects the Southwest
Florida economy to
begin to recover during
the fall, when seasonal
visitors return.
Unemployment, how-
ever, will lag because com-
panies will wait to ensure
that the economy is com-
ing back before they hire.
"Regionalism is going
to be very, very impor-
tant, for us to be able to
compete in the global
economy," Jackson said.
Projects
One regional project on
which local governments
have collaborated is shar-
ing the work of area build-
ing departments. Elected
officials in Charlotte and
Sarasota counties, Long-
boat Key, North Port,
Punta Gorda and Venice
moved to avoid possible
layoffs of inspectors and
plans examiners in build-
ing departments which
constrict in size when
construction is down
- by signing interlocal
agreements.
To combat rising
unemployment, the Eco-
nomic Development Cor-
poration of Sarasota
County created Sara-
sota County One, which
encourages buying local.
"The idea behind this
campaign is to raise
awareness among busi-
ness operators and gov-
ernments about the
importance of buying
goods and services local-
ly," C.J. Fishman, incom-
ing chair of the EDC, told
North Port commission-
ers recently.
Fishman said buying
local means patronizing
any vendor that employs
local people, from an
office supply company to
a creative services firm to
a bank.
"We should be doing
this whether times are
good or times are chal-
lenging, like they are," he
said. "Using local ven-
dors helps keep money
from leaving the area.


marketing programs to
combat the downturn,
local governments can
reduce fees and provide
economic development
incentives. But govern-
ments must find the
proper balance between
thinking regionally and
thinking locally.
If a business is "willing


to put up a CVS on one
corner and the cost is X,
and the cost is lower onY,
they are going to build at
Y," said Kathy Baylis, EDC
president and CEO. "The
value is that the jobs will
remain. You always have
to look at your cost of
doing business."
Baylis said the EDC is


"very, very supportive of
regionalism. We think it is
the wave of the future, par-
ticularly when it comes to
funding streams" such as
grants and federal outlays.
Baylis and other area
economic development
managers from jurisdic-
tions in Charlotte, Collier,
Glades, Hendry, Lee and


Sarasota counties but
no elected officials -
meet regularly to work
on branding Southwest
Florida for economic
growth, in what they are
calling Southwest Florida
Economic Development
Partners.
Meanwhile, Sarasota
County Commissioner


Shannon Staub said that
what's nice about Char-
lotte, Sarasota and possi-
bly DeSoto working
together is "if it's small
enough to actually be
workable, you might
actually get something
done."

Art teacher paints a


portrait of successful


students


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

Most any artist knows it takes
the right mixture of color to get a
painting just right.
The same can be said for the art
teacher who is the inspiration
behind the student. It takes the
right amount of teaching and let-
ting go, wisdom and humor,
hands on and hands off to allow
students to reach their full creative
potential.
Whatever it is, Craig Seidell has
what it takes. His students won an
unprecedented 11 out of 25
awards at the 2009 Evening Of
Excellence auction held Feb. 27 at
Michael's On East in Sarasota.
"He is the best art teacher I ever
had," said Nichole Timoney, who
garnered an impressive $23,100
bid for her acrylic titled "Radio
Geisha."
How so?
"He is not afraid to tell us when
our work is crap," said Timoney.
She said he is very knowledgeable,
has a master's in painting and is
very supportive.
"He knows about scholarships
and helps provide supplies. If you
get in trouble with what you're
painting, he will push you, but not
force you. This was the first time I
painted with professional grade
paints and brushes. He gives good
instruction, knows the elements
and principles of design and the
color wheel. He tests you, and you
get it," she said.
Timoney is a senior in Seidell's
Advanced Placement art class at
Venice High School.
Her winning bid was made by
philanthropist Al Weis, who also
purchased the Best of Show paint-
ing by Amberose Courville, titled
"Warm Seas Breath." Courville,
Timoney's classmate, praised
Seidell's teaching techniques.
"He pushes me and gives cri-
tiques of my artwork," Courville
said.

Venice High School students took home 15 of the top 25 student art awards at
the Education Foundation of Sarasota County's 2009 Evening of Excellence held
Feb. 27 at Michael's On East.
Student artwork from six high schools in the district was auctioned off at the
foundation's 14th annual fundraiser. Venice High School senior Nichole Timoney's
painting, "Radio Geisha," took the highest bid of $23,100. The bid set an all-time
record for a single work of student art.
The benefit grossed more than $260,000 in cash and in-kind support, accord-
ing to a foundation press release. The Evening of Excellence is an innovative art
program and an established social event that raises significant funds annually to
benefit 41,000 children in the public schools through the work of the foundation.
The program has raised more than $1.5 million for the schools over the past 14
years.
Eleven of the top student artists were taught by Craig Seidell at Venice High
School; four were taught by Retsy Lauer at Pine View School. Some students had
two winning titles. The winning local students, title of their art pieces and awards

STUDENTS from Page 1B
Other students comment
Grace Betts, another senior student
in Seidell's AP class, also thinks highly
of the teacher.
"He puts a lot into what he does and
wants us all to succeed. He takes away
from his personal time to get us to art
shows," she said.
Matthew Bingham, a junior art
student, said Seidell is an excellent
teacher. "He is one of my favorite
teachers at this school," he said.
30 years and counting
Seidell holds a Bachelor of Science
degree in education from Northern
Illinois University-DeKalb and a mas-
ter's in painting from Texas Women's
University in Denton, Texas.
He has been teaching art for 30
years, at Sarasota High School for 21
of those years and the last four at
VHS. He has taught in Illinois, Texas
and Florida. Seidell has taught the
current seniors since they were fresh-
men, when they started out in his
Drawing I classes. He pulled the ones
he felt had artistic potential into his
AP class to see what they could
become.
"You have to be focused to do this
kind of work. And in this day, kids
expect to have things right now. But
they have to take it from square one,
from A to Z themselves, rather than
those that can accomplish things
quickly on a computer. Art is different
from other classes," he said.
In talking about the students, a
sense of pride in their accomplish-
ments oozed from Seidell as he
revealed his four beliefs about the kids
and the AP art program.
"Number one, these are all good
kids. Number two, administration gets
behind you and gives you the money to
make the program function. Third, you
have to talk to the kids at their level.
Number four, this is a viable program,
the art program. The kids believe in it
and they have to believe in what you
know."

push themselves," he said.
So how is it going to be when the
senior students he has nurtured along
graduate?
"I love these kids. I've gotten to
know them over the last four years. It
is going to be hard to see them leave.
They have been a real inspiration to
me," he said.
Seidell has painted a lifetime of suc-
cess for the students in his AP art class.
Hopefully these seniors will continue to
create art for the rest of their lives and
others will know their success as they
join the VHS AP class roster.

Uncle Sam is offering near-term help.
Centex adds a long-term benefit!
You may be eligible for up to an $8,000 tax credit from Uncle Sam. At Centex, we think that's a
great start. But even smarter is what we're adding in: Centex will help you lock in today's great
rates. Plus if rates go down, on many homes you get a one-time chance to float down to the new
lower rate, giving you the reassurance to build the home you really want, where you want-with a
lower monthly payment. Not to mention we are also giving you up to $10,000 in design options to
personalize your new home so you really get what you want! Hurry, offer ends April 30th, 2009!

Find your new home at CGntexcOClM


New homes starting from the mid $100s!

e The credit is a federal tax credit subject to qualifications, conditions, and restrictions. The credit is only available
... for a limited time. General information is available at FederalHousingTaxCredit.com. Centex does not advise on
any personal income tax matters or issues. The information provided here is for general information only and does
not represent tax or legal advice (either express or implied), nor should it be a substitute for professional tax or legal services
and/or advice and you should not construe any statement made by Centex or its agents, representatives or employees as
such advice or service. We strongly urge that before you purchase a home, you seek advice from a professional advisor that
is familiar with your personal facts and circumstances. They can assist you in determining whether you qualify for the new
credit and the amount available to you. Rate lock offer is limited to certain 30 year conventional or FHA loan programs offered
through CTX Mortgage Company LLC ("CTX"), 2728 N. Harwood, Dallas, TX, 75201, an affiliate of Centex, and is limited to
qualified borrowers with contracts for construction of selected new homes accepted between 04/01/09 through 04/30/09 in
select neighborhoods, with qualifying financing through CTX. Upon receiving verified loan approval through CTX, Centex will
pay the cost to lock the buyer's mortgage interest rate for up to 180 days at the then current market rate. Centex maximum
payment or reimbursement is the lesser of 6% of sales price or $10,000, subject to requirements and limitations on amounts
that Centex may credit or contribute to buyer under buyer's loan program. Market rate is an interest rate offered by CTX
without requiring the payment of discount points, may vary based on the buyer's individual loan qualification, and may not
be the lowest rate offered by CTX. In certain loan programs, up to 15 days before scheduled closing, borrower can exercise a
one-time float down to a lower rate. Buyer is responsible for paying closing costs and reserves. Program may not be available
with other promotions or discounts. The amount of design option incentive varies depending on the price of the home, and
will not be $10,000 for all homes. See a Centex sales consultant for details. This material shall not constitute a valid offer in

FINE WHINES


Here's the beef


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


The West Michigan Whitecaps, a
minor league affiliate of the Detroit
Tigers, have proudly announced the
latest addition to the ballpark menu:
the Fifth Third Burger.
Named for the bank that sponsors
the stadium the Whitecaps play in, the
$20 burger consists of "five-thirds (1.67)
pounds of meat, smothered with chili,
salsa, sour cream and cheese, topped
with Fritos, lettuce and tomato, all on a
huge eight-inch sesame seed bun,"
according to the team's Web site.
Upon learning of the existence of
this taste treat, I had two immediate
thoughts: 1) Too bad Burger King has
already trademarked the name "the
Whopper"; and, 2) Can I get fries with
that?
Just kidding ordering fries would
impinge on my ability to eat the whole
burger and earn myself a T-shirt with a
photo of it on the front and its "nutri-
tional" information on the back. A sam-
pling: calories, 4,889; total fat, 299.5
grams (460 percent of your recom-
mended daily value); 744.6 grams of
cholesterol (248 percent); and 10,887.9
milligrams of sodium (454 percent -
about the same as eating a salt lick, I'd
guess).
It probably won't surprise you to
learn that the T-shirts go up to XXXXXL.
And that they're not available in small.
Now, to be fair, the team has done


this in part as a publicity stunt, much
like its planned Defibrillator Night pro-
motion (I made that one up). And it has
worked. According to the Web site, the
burger has been featured on ESPN,
"The Today Show," CNBC, "CBS This
Morning" and "many other TV stations
and newspapers across the world!"
Not all the reviews have been favor-
able, however. A dietitian at a doctors
group wants the team to put a warning
label on the the Fifth Third Burger.
According to ABC News, Susan Levin of
the Washington-based Physicians
Committee for Responsible Medicine
sent a letter to the team asking that the
burger be labeled a "dietary disaster"
that increases the risk of cancer and
heart disease.
Spoilsport.
A Whitecaps spokesman told ABC
the team isn't considering putting a
warning on the burger, and I hope it
doesn't. After all, this is America, where
bigger is always better (well, maybe not
if you're talking about the recession,
but you know what I mean), and base-
ball is the national pastime. Don't screw
with it, not even the food at the ball-
park.
Besides, anyone who would need to
be told that the Fifth Third Burger isn't
exactly health food has probably taken
too many foul balls to the head to listen
to advice from a dietitian.

Golf resort offers unlimited play


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

If my father were still
alive, he would be head-
ing to the Omni Orlando
Resort at Champions
Gate for its "Unlimited
Golf" deal.
Taking up the game as
a teenager, my father
played and caddied until
he was out of school and
working. He once played
54 holes in one day.
Working never kept him
from playing golf almost
daily. He would play until
dark and for as much of
the year as Cleveland
weather would allow. At
the age of 68 he had two
holes in one in the same
month at Lake Venice.
At ChampionsGate,
which I visited and
attempted to play two
years ago, real golfers are
challenged by two rigor-
ous courses. One is pat-
terned after the likes of
the best European lay-
outs and, despite the lack
of the North Sea, remind-
ed me of St. Andrews in
Scotland. The other
course is as tough as any
American course I've


seen. To use the word
play about my game of
late, seems to be a
stretch.
Packages begin at
$259 per night per per-
son during April for con-
tinuous play on either of
these two courses or on
the more casual par-
three nine-hole layout,
which is lit for night play.
Accommodations and
breakfast at Trevi's are
included.
In May, the rate drops
to $219 per day per per-
son. The deal even
includes a 3 p.m. check-
out. Compare that to the
more common 11 a.m.
check-outs at many
resorts or the half-day fee
charged to stay that late
at some resorts. Tips and
taxes are extra.
There are several fine
places to dine at the
resort as well as a deli
where one can grab
sandwiches and snacks
to go more time on the
course(s).
For those who need
help, the Omni also is the
home of the David
Ledbetter Golf Academy.

and other equipment to help golfers
improve their swing.
Lessons are in addition to the pack-
age price.
For those needing equipment, there
is a full store in the clubhouse offering
everything from golf socks and gloves
to a full set of clubs. Also, there is
David's a sports bar with several flat-
screen TVs, billiards and an outdoor
terrace from which one can watch the


bagpiper.
The resort also has two outdoor
pools and an 850-foot long tubing river,
spa and fitness center and, because it is
the ultimate golf resort, a bagpiper who
plays nightly at sunset on the 19th tee
of the Internationals course.
Pool cabanas at the formal adult
pool and spa services are extra.

Anniversaries light up London this year


BY SUSAN MCKEE
GUEST WRITER


If the museums, the-
aters, restaurants and
palaces of London aren't
enough to lure you across
the pond this year, what
about history?
This year marks sever-
al anniversaries of events
that have reverberated
not only in England, but
across the world.
Take Charles Darwin
for example. Not only is
this the bicentennial of
the English naturalist's
birth (he was born on the
same day -Feb. 12, 1809
- as Abraham Lincoln),
but 2009 also marks the
150th anniversary of the
publication of Darwin's
seminal work, "On the
Origin of Species."
You'll have to hurry
across the pond for
"Darwin: Big Ideas Big
Exhibition." It's on dis-
play in London's Natural
History Museum only
through April 19. Here,
you can learn more
about both the man and
his scientific research.
Then there's Henry
VIII- he of the six wives.
This year marks the 500th
anniversary of his acces-
sion to the throne. Both
Hampton Court (his
favorite palace) and the


Visitors will be "guests" at
the marriage, which took
place in 1543. In addition
to the usual exhibits
throughout the sprawl-
ing complex, there'll be
special exhibits related to
his happy event.
Things are a bit more

brings together objects
and items known to have
belonged to Henry VIII,
including key paintings
from Henry's reign.
The Royal Botanic
Gardens at Kew are cele-
brating their 250th an-
niversary in 2009. The
Gardens were founded in
1759 by Princess Augus-
ta, the mother of King
George III.
Spring is a great time
to wander among the
300 acres alongside the
Thames between Rich-
mond and Kew in south-
west London. The Gar-
dens (a UNESCO World
Heritage Site) have six
greenhouses, and more
than 14,000 trees. My
favorite place is the Palm
House (dating to the 19th
century), and I never miss
the chance to climb up
the stairs for a birds-eye
view at the new Xstrata
Treetop Walkway. (There's
an elevator, but it never
seems to be working.)
Kew's entrances are
being transformed with
new garden displays to
mark the anniversary
year, which began April 4.
A Seed Walk with huge
willow sculptures line the
mini-Broadwalk at Main
Gate. Reaching more

than 13 feet tall and
about 16 feet wide, there
are five sculptures at first:
a sycamore seed, coco de
mer, a conker and a lotus
seed head. They are set
against tropical display
beds planted specially for
the anniversary. By the
end of the summer, all 10
sculptures by artist Tom
Hare will be complete.
The Seed Walk is
inspired by Kew's Mil-
lennium Seed Bank, which
aims to collect and bank
seeds from 10 percent of
the world's wild flowering
plant species by 2010. An
exhibition about Kew's
MSB Partnership will run
next to the Seed Walk in
the Nash Conservatory
until September.
Is your first name
George? Then you have
to be in London on April
25 for this year's St.
George's Day celebration
(the saint's day is really
April 23, but a Saturday is
ever so much better for a
party than a Thursday).
Parades, food festivals
and theatrical events
mark the day honoring
the guy who slew that
dragon ... and ended up
as the patron saint of
England. His flag a red

The essentials on Social Security retirement benefits


FROM NAPSA

The "silver tsunami"
has begun in America.
That's what demogra-
phers have dubbed the
massive wave of baby
boomers swiftly moving
toward retirement. And
despite concerns to the
contrary, Social Security
will play a central role in
most boomers' retire-
ment income. According
to the Social Security
Administration, 90 per-
cent of the nearly 80 mil-
lion Americans sched-
uled to retire over the
next two decades will
rely on Social Security to
some degree.
According to Kathryn
Hanson, Social Security
specialist for SecurePath
by Transamerica, a ser-
vice of Transamerica Re-
tirement Management,
Inc., and former Area
Director for the Social
Security Administration,
workers with average
earnings may depend on
Social Security to replace
up to 55 percent of their
after-tax income as


retirees. She says a clear
understanding of Social
Security "basics" is criti-
cal. But it can be hard to
get.
"Pre-retirees are
brimming with ques-
tions about accessing
these benefits, but get-
ting answers can feel
overwhelming," says
Hanson.
"For instance, the Fre-
quently Asked Questions
section of the Social
Security Administration
Web site alone has more
than 600 entries."
Hanson points out
the following questions
and answers as good
starting points for pre-
retirees struggling to
make sense of their
Social Security benefits.
Answers to these ques-
tions and more can be
found at www.ssa.gov or
in the Social Security
Handbook.
1. How do I become
eligible?
People born after
1928 need 40 "credits" to
receive retirement bene-
fits. Currently, a credit


represents $1,050 of cov-
ered earnings and you
can gain up to four cred-
its per year. This means
you need to work at least
10 years to collect Social
Security benefits.
Keep in mind that the
highest 35 years of cov-
ered earnings are used
to calculate your month-
ly benefit amount. If you
haven't worked 35 years,
"zero" earnings years
will be used in the 35-
year calculation. Social
Security beneficiaries
also receive an annual
cost-of-living increase
based on the Consumer
Price Index. In 2007, the
average monthly check
was $1,007, or $12,084 a
year.
2. How will my retire-
ment age affect my
Social Security income?
For decades, the tradi-
tional retirement age
was 65, but with Amer-
icans living longer, the
federal government has
increased the age at
which people can re-
ceive full Social Security
benefits.


People born in 1937
or earlier can retire with
full benefits when they
are 65. The Full
Retirement Age gradual-
ly rises for those born
between 1943 and 1954
to age 66, and gradually
rises to 67 for those born
in 1960 or later.
Still, anyone eligible
for Social Security can
begin receiving benefits
at age 62, though at a
reduced rate. The closer
you are to 62, the larger
the monthly benefit
reduction. For instance,
if your normal full retire-
ment age is 66 but you
opt to begin receiving
Social Security at 62,
you'd collect about
three-quarters of the full
benefit amount.
Likewise, if you post-
pone receiving Social
Security until after your
full retirement age, you'll
get a boost in benefits,
ranging from 3 percent
to 8 percent by age 70.
3. What happens if I
work after I retire?
Social Security benefi-
ciaries who are younger


than their normal full
retirement age may earn
$13,560 annually with no
effect on benefits. For
every $2 earned above
that limit, the federal
government withholds
$1 from the worker's
Social Security payment.
When a person
reaches full retirement
age, there's no reduc-
tion in benefits for
earnings.
Another plus: Pen-
sions, investment in-
come, annuities, capital
gains, inheritance mon-
ey, IRA distributions
and other government
benefits do not affect
your Social Security
benefits.
4. What about bene-
fits for my spouse?
Of course, a spouse
who works on his/her
own and meets the eligi-
bility requirements will
receive his/her own
Social Security checks.
Spouses who did not
work enough to have the
required 40 credits or
whose earnings were not
enough to yield a full


retirement amount one-
half that of the other
spouse will receive an
amount equaling 50 per-
cent of the higher-earn-
ing spouse's full retire-
ment amount, reduced
for the number of
months under full retire-
ment age.
5. How do I apply?
Begin the application
process no more than
four months before your
planned retirement date.
Start by calling 1-800-
772-1213 to locate the
nearest field office, or
check online at www.ssa.
gov or www.ssa.gov/
onlineservices.
You can use these
Web sites to apply for
Social Security directly
online, or if you prefer to
deal with a real person,
you can make an
appointment at your
local office.

Security and other issues
facing people preparing
for their retirement tran-
sition are available on-

Christ United Methodist Church group


helps orphans in Dominican Republic


PROVIDED BY CHRIST UNITED
METHODIST CHURCH

A small group from Christ
United Methodist Church recently
loaded up 3,547 pounds of pinto
beans that will help feed orphans
in the Dominican Republic. Tony
Morley, a member of the church's
missions committee and a board
member of Homeless Orphans and
Outreach Inc. based at Memorial
United Methodist Church in Lake
Placid, Fla., headed up the project.
"Last year we challenged the
small groups of our church to
bring in 2,000 pounds of beans for
the orphanages. They brought in
2,182 pounds," Morley said. "This
year we challenged the church
during our mission's conference to
bring in 3,000 pounds of beans for
the orphans and this year they
brought in 3,547 pounds."
The church has supported the
Dominican orphanages for more
than 25 years. HOOI, a Florida-
based nonprofit charitable organi-
zation, raises money to support
Hogar de Ninos in the Dominican
Republic. The organization pro-
vides shelter for four orphanages
and has built four schools that are
also open to the public. Kids in
surrounding communities can
attend and 1,500 kids from the
community now attend each day.
HOOI also coordinates one-week
trips for various church groups to
participate in during the summer

Why

I Love

Living

Here


I'm one of the real
lucky ones who live
here. Why? I'm retired.
This area is paradise to
me for many reasons. I've
been able to meet people
from all over the world, and
they, too, love this little
piece of heaven.
The natives who were
born here are very proud of


their heritage. They work
very hard to keep our lovely
county a special place to
live, work and play in.
The numerous restau-
rants are great, and the
varied entertainment
superb. We are blessed with
wonderful hospitals, and
many highly educated
physicians. If we ever find


ourselves in need of help,
people are there at a
moment's notice.
My dream is that my
descendants will have the
opportunity to experience
the warmth of Charlotte
County.


-Phyllis M Poirier,
Port Charlotte

Uncle Sam is offering near-term help.
Centex adds a long-term benefit!
You may be eligible for up to an $8,000 tax credit from Uncle Sam. At Centex, we think that's a
great start. But even smarter is what we're adding in: Centex will help you lock in today's great
rates. Plus if rates go down, on many homes you get a one-time chance to float down to the new
lower rate, giving you the reassurance to build the home you really want, where you want-with a
lower monthly payment. Not to mention we are also giving you up to $10,000 in design options to
personalize your new home so you really get what you want! Hurry, offer ends April 30th, 2009!

Find your new home at Cenltex.CTm

The credit is a federal tax credit subject to qualifications, conditions, and restrictions. The credit is only available
for a limited time. General information is available at FederalHousingTaxCredit.com. Centex does not advise on
S any personal income tax matters or issues. The information provided here is for general information only and does

such advice or service. We strongly urge that before you purchase a home, you seek advice from a professional advisor that
is familiar with your personal facts and circumstances. They can assist you in determining whether you qualify for the new
credit and the amount available to you. Rate lock offer is limited to certain 30 year conventional or FHA loan programs offered
through CTX Mortgage Company, LLC ("CTX"), 2728 N. Harwood, Dallas, TX, 75201, an affiliate of Centex, and is limited to
qualified borrowers with contracts for construction of selected new homes accepted between 04/01/09 through 04/30/09 in

payment or reimbursement is the lesser of 6% of sales price or $10,000, subject to requirements and limitations on amounts

Meet Linda Mazner...

2009 President of the Punta Gorda-Port Charlotte-North Port Chapter of the Women's Council of Realtors


By NANCY F. PADGETT
ADVERTISING MANAGER
Career that begin
more than three
years ago that was
"started for something to
do and meet more
people" has certainly met
all expectations and then
some for Linda Mazner.
A successful Realtor at
Prudential Florida Realtor
this active community
volunteer is the current
president of the 2009
Punta Gorda-Port
Charlotte-North Port
Chapter of the Women's
Council of Realtors.
"One of the first people
I met at Prudential


Florida
Realty was
Nancy Bell.
Nancy took
me under
her wing
and got me
involved
withWCR. I MAZNER
have met so
many people and the
education and
networking opportunities
are tremendous. I was
hooked," Mazner said.
Traveling to conventions
sponsored by the Florida
and National Association
of Realtors is a benefit
afforded to the WCR
president. "I have met


many Realtors from all
over whom I now
consider friends. What a
great organization."
The local chapter was
just notified that they will
receive a 2008 Gold
Chapter Excellence Award
in Washington D.C. in
May at the National
Association of Realtors
Convention.
Born and raised in
Onaway, Mich., and later
living in Lansing, Mazner
married her high school
sweetheart, Steve.
"We had visited Punta
Gorda with friends on
vacation and stayed at
Fishermen's Village. We


always said we would
retire here. After our three
children finished their
education, we decided to
move to Florida. My
husband's job required
travel and we could live
anywhere. We went up
and down the East and
West coasts of Florida and
kept coming back to Punta
Gorda. We were home. We
found a house, lived in it
while it was completely
remodeled (something I
do not recommend), slept
on air mattresses with no
furniture for three months,
which was quite a feat for
me, until all work was
completed. It was well


worth it," she said.
Mazner's three grown
children assisted with the
home repairs and two of
them and their families
are now Florida residents.
The third son lives in
Chicago and is working
toward a career in radi-
ology. Two grandchildren
complete the immediate
family and are a big part of
her life.
A very active partici-
pant in the American
Cancer Society
fundraising, Mazner was
involved in the recent
Relay for Life event. A
very close friend got her
involved a few years ago.


She admires the dedi-
cated volunteers who are
working so hard to find a
cure for cancer.
One of the goals of
WCR is growth. Mazner is
spearheading the addi-
tion of new members and
membership retention.
WCR is open to women
and men, Realtors and
affiliates. The local WCR
Web site is www.
wcr-charlottearea.com.
Most WCR meetings are
held monthly at the
Association of Realtors
office on Loveland Blvd.
in Port Charlotte.
To attend contact
Mazner at 941-205-2128.

I've been told that the antifreeze is going out my exhaust. See page 2.

Three firsts featured this Saturday


f you are a regular
reader of this column,
the title above fits
what I have been writing
about for the past few
weeks the Saturday
Benefit Car Show at the
new Muscle Car City
Museum to help our
friends at The Salvation
Army with their funds.
It's true there are three
firsts involved in this
venture.
For Rick Treworgy,
owner of the museum, it
is his first involvement in
a benefit car show at this
location. Many people,
including some auto
clubs, have visited
unofficially and several
officially, however never
as an event to raise
money for a charity.
Treworgy and his
daughter, April, are
experienced hosts, thus
it should be successful.
This twosome also are
writing a check that day
to The Salvation Army for
a sizable percent of the
museum admission
taken during the 10 a.m.
to 2 p.m. show time.
The second first
involves the beneficiary,
The Salvation Army,
which never has been
connected with any type
of local fundraising
associated with vintage
vehicles until now.
Maj. Caleb Prieto and
his wife, Maj. Rebecca


Prieto, enjoy yesteryear
forms of transportation
and are looking forward
to greeting those arriving
with their four-wheel
gems.
For the Veteran Motor
Car Club of America,
Southwest Florida
chapter co-sponsor
and director of all
outside activity it will
be the club's very first
endeavor to develop and
carry out an exclusive,
100 percent charity
event. The members are
doing this without any
help other than their
hard work and the
generosity of this truly
community newspaper
and others who know
and understand the need
for this particular
fundraiser.
Believers and patrons
of The Salvation Army,
besides the Sun papers,
donating services and
supplies are: Signs-R-Us;
Buffalo Graffix; Office
Depot; Staples; Robert
Howell, club member
and aWalmart assistant
manager, who personally


purchased some needed
materials; and the
Charlotte Harbor & Gulf
Islands Florida Visitor's
Bureau. Plus, the Punta
Gorda and Charlotte
County chambers of
commerce provided
important informational
items for owners to keep
in their collector car
glove boxes; and music
and disc jockey services
will be provided courtesy
of Herman and the
Cruisers.
I urge county residents
to come out and see the
great variety of cars,
trucks and motorcycles
- plus the museum.
There is no fee for the
outside show, however
several large containers
will be in place for your
much-needed donations
to help this 144-year-old
organization.
The same day, from
4 p.m. until 8 p.m., is the
regular Downtown Punta
Gorda Cruise-In located
on Sullivan Street and
Virginia Avenue. Nearby
are stores and restau-
rants that want and
appreciate your busi-
ness, only a short walk
from the old car parking
area. Rick Baker, aka
Herman and the
Cruisers, will be playing
those tunes a lot of us
grew up with. For more
information, call 941-
426-7887.


Next to a 1930 Ford pickup and a 1967 Corvette Coupe in front of the new Muscle Car
City Museum in Punta Gorda, where this Saturday's event will take place, are Rick
Treworgy, museum owner; Maj. Caleb Prieto, Salvation Army Commander and pastor;
and Don Royston, president of the Veteran Motor Car Club of America, Southwest
Florida chapter.


Today: 5 p.m. to
9 p.m.: McDonald's in
Murdock. 941-240-5799.
Before I forget, there
is a big '50s "Sock Hop"
Thursday at the new
Charlotte Harbor Event
and Conference Center
on Taylor Street, also in
downtown Punta Gorda.
This facility reeks of
class, and when mixed
with '50s/'60s lively


music, an evening of fun
is assured. Some period
cars of those years have
been reserved for the
attendees to reminisce
before going inside. This
type of dance, too, is a
first for this new center.
Old car people and
others who simply like
this kind of music should
support these affairs so
there will be more of


them in the future. For
more information, call
941-639-5833.

Don Royston is
president and co-
founder of the
Southwest Florida
Chapter of the
Veteran Motor Car Club
ofAmerica. He can be
reached at 941-
575-0202.
