City considering prisoner work program


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Venice City Council agreed
this week to investigate a
county sponsored "sentenced
defendants work program."
The program trades jail
time for work by those serving
jail time only on weekends for
DUIs, or those convicted of
municipal ordinance offenses,
technical violations of proba-
tion, or serving time for con-
tempt issues. More than half of
those incarcerated in county
jails are awaiting trial.


Zavodnyik Martin


Wayne Applebee, criminal
justice policy coordinator with
Sarasota Health & Human
Services, invited the city to
participate and submit a list of
projects offenders could work


A similar program by the
Sarasota County Sheriff's Of-
fice known as the Road Gang
provided inmate labor for
the county's Public Works
Business Center, Applebee
said.
That program, however,
was never intended to serve as
a sentencing alternative, and it
was eliminated last year due to
budget constraints, said
Twelfth Circuit Court Chief
Justice Lee Haworth in a letter
to city officials about the pro-
gram.


'Low risk'
The sentenced defendants
program is designed to ease
prison overcrowding and re-
duce costs.
"There were people in our
jail that didn't need to be
there," Applebee said.
The program serves as an
alternative to jail time, sending
offenders to jail only as a last
resort.
"The ultimate goal" is to
"need less beds in the future,"
Applebee said.
It's not a new concept. The
program is in effect in several


nearby counties and through-
out the nation as an additional
sentencing option.
Last year the county con-
ducted a study of who was in
its jails and the rehabilitation
services they might need.
It found a significant num-
ber of persons who had a low
risk of committing more
crimes. It also found that de-
fendants who had employ-
ment prior to incarceration
would make good candidates
for the program, Applebee

Found stranded in Naples, loggerhead turtle Vicki Lee was rescued and returned to Mote Marine Laboratory
21 years after first being tagged. The turtle is named in honor of Vicki Wiese, shown to the right of her name-
sake, who tagged the turtle as it nested on Casey Key in 1988.

Tagged turtle returns

after 21 years


BY DANA SANCHEZ
STAFF WRITER


A sea turtle tagged 21 years ago by Mote
Marine Laboratory staff was found stranded in
Naples and returned to Mote's rehabilitation
hospital.
The female loggerhead still carried a relative-
ly primitive tag attached in 1988 a piece of
metal bearing a number crimped around her
flipper.
Stranded near the Naples Beach Hotel and


Golf Club, the turtle was rescued by the Florida
Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission and
weighed 225 pounds.
"To have this tag stay on is amazing," said
Vicki Wiese, who originally tagged the animal in
1988, according to a report.
The turtle was named Vicki Lee to honor
Wiese, who is now Mote's events director.
New technology has changed tagging meth-
ods since those early days of turtle tagging

A complaint filed by the De-
partment of Business and Pro-
fessional Regulation against
Hans Behrens, city of Venice
building and code enforcement
director, could put his license
in jeopardy.
The complaint arises out of
an alleged failure by Behrens to
require the owners of Tavern
On The Island, a bar at 127 E.
Tampa Ave., to comply with
the city building code, and for
allowing it to open while con-
struction was going on without
necessary permits and inspec-
tions.
Behrens, a longtime admin-
istrator who remains on the
job, has requested a hearing
before the board; no hearing
date has been set.
"We don't believe the charg-
es are substantiated in any
way," said Bob Moore, Behr-
ens' attorney.
In fact, Moore doesn't think
an investigation was even
requested.
He said the initial commu-
nication to the DBPR from
then- city manager Marty Black
in 2008 sought a "cursory
examination" of why permits
were granted without appro-
priate inspections.
On Friday the former city
manager agreed, saying he
"asked for a review" of the


building officer's responsibili-
ties, not an investigation.
Black said he asked for the
review because he couldn't
find an independent building
official who wasn't already
under contract with the state
to review the facts.
"They said show it to us and
we will look at it," Black said.
"Frankly, I was surprised the
issue hadn't been resolved
sooner. It's been pending over
a year. It seems like a lot of time
to let something like that go."
Behrens wasn't the only
building official the DBPR
investigated. Deputy Building
Official Dan Weigner was also
scrutinized but no complaint
against him has been filed.
The gap
The issue surfaced in late
2007 when two building in-
spectors grew concerned about
issuing Behrens' alleged deci-
sion to allow TOTI despite
numerous code and permit
issues.
Construction appeared to
ramp up in August 2007. By
November 2007 TOTI's owners
had secured the required per-
mits, but ran afoul of other fire
and safety codes, piling up
dozens of infractions. Some
are still outstanding at the
property. Still, the bar was
allowed to open.

New visitor to Curry Creek Preserve


FROM SARASOTA
COUNTY


Visitors to the Curry
Creek Preserve in Venice
this week were treated to a
visit of the winged variety
by a Cape May warbler on
its way from the West Indies
to New England.
While the warbler is not a
rare bird, it has not been doc-
umented before at Curry
Creek Preserve, said Environ-
mental Specialist Jeff Weber,
who was leading a free
nature walk for the county
when the bird appeared.
"This is a beautiful
species, one of several

its first documented appear-
ance at Curry Creek Preserve
this week.

types of warblers passing
through the area during the
current spring migration,"


said Weber. "Cape May
warblers winter in the West
Indies, and are currently on
their way back northward
to their summer breeding
grounds in northern New
England and Canada."
According to the Cornell
Lab of Ornithology, Cape
May warblers are larger
than other such birds, with
a unique curled tongue that
allows them to collect nec-
tar. They feed mostly on
spruce budworms during
their breeding season and
nectar and insects in winter.
Females lay between four
and nine eggs in nests of
sphagnum moss, twigs,


pine needles and bark, lined
with hair and feathers, near
the tops of spruce trees.
Weber says that in the
next few weeks, similar
sightings of the Cape May
warbler are possible as they
continue making their way
north.
Curry Creek Preserve is
located at 1075 Albee Farm
Road, Venice. The 81-acre
preserve was purchased in
2002 through the Environ-
mentally Sensitive Lands
Protection Program.

Tree City USA

BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER

What is a "Tree City" and why should
Venice be interested in obtaining the desig-
nation?
According to the Web site arborday.org,
the Tree City USA program is sponsored by
the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation
with the U.S. Forest Service and the
National Association of State Foresters, and
provides direction, technical assistance,
public attention and national recognition
for urban and community forestry pro-
grams.
Recently the Venice Parks and
Recreation Advisory Board recommended
to city council that staff look into the feasi-
bility of becoming a tree city. With 3,310
nationwide community members, includ-
ing 133 cities in Florida, the program has
become very pop-
ular during its
over 30 years of
existence.
Four standards J
required to be met
include: (1) a tree
board or depart-
ment, (2) a tree-
care ordinance,
(3) a community
forestry program A" 1f.
with an annual budget .
of at least $2 per capital, and
(4) an Arbor Day observance proclamation.
Why should we concern ourselves with
such a program? A few good reasons
include: providing shade for the cooling
effect on people and homes; photosynthe-
sis and its oxygen byproduct; wood prod-
ucts; and the fact that caring for trees tells
visitors we are a community that cares
about its environment.
The planet it's worth saving.

Swine flu confirmed in state


FROM THE FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH

Florida now has two Centers
for Disease Controls and
Prevention-confirmed cases of
swine flu: an 11-year-old male
who attends Spring Creek
Elementary School in Lee
County and a 17-year-old
female who attends Hallandale
High School in Broward
County.
Gov. Charlie Crist has direct-
ed State Surgeon General Dr.
AnaViamonte Ros to declare a
public health emergency that
will allow her to take any action
necessary to protect the public
health.
There are currently no
school closures in Florida.
Decisions regarding school
closures will be made by local
superintendents.


The symptoms of swine flu
in people are similar to the
symptoms of regular human
flu: fever, cough, sore throat,
body aches, headache, chills
and fatigue. Some people have
reported diarrhea and vomit-
ing associated with swine flu.
Like seasonal flu, swine flu
may cause a worsening of
underlying chronic medical
conditions.
Samples are being received
by Florida Department of
Health Laboratories for analy-
sis from physicians and hospi-
tals across the state. Anti-viral
medications have been sent to
areas of potential need.
Viamonte Ros provided
these recommendations:
People with respiratory ill-
ness should stay home from
work or school to avoid
spreading infections, including


influenza, to others in the
community.
Avoid close contact with
people who are coughing or
otherwise appear ill.
Avoid touching your eyes,
nose and mouth.
Wash hands frequently to
lessen the spread of respiratory
illness.
People experiencing
cough, fever and fatigue, possi-
bly along with diarrhea and
vomiting, should contact their
physician.
If you think you have
influenza, call your health-care
provider and discuss whether
you need to be seen in the
office or emergency depart-
ment or should just stay home.
The department of health
hotline, (800) 342-3557, is open
8 a.m.-8 p.m. Its Web site is
www.doh.state.fl.us.


Bypass roadwork


starts on Monday


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

Contractors begin the
Venice Bypass Project next
week, starting May 4 on U.S.
41 Bypass between Bird Bay
Drive and Center Road.
Venice Bypass will be
resurfaced and new traffic
signal supports will be
installed at Bird Bay Drive,
Albee Farm Road, East
Venice Avenue and the
entrance to the Sweetbay
shopping center. Median
improvements, curb and
gutter work and ADA
upgrades to sidewalks at
three locations will complete
the project.
During the first week, con-


tractors will install silt fences
and erosion control along
the entire corridor during
daytime hours and not
require lane closures. In
future weeks lane closures
will be needed for milling
and resurfacing the travel
and turn lanes and some of
the utility work.
Barring any unforeseen
delays Florida Department
of Transportation expects to
complete the whole project
in 130 days, said Ken
Nelson, public information
officer.
The total cost of the pro-
ject is $2,105,992.48. The
general contractor is AJAX
Paving Industries Inc., 510
Gene Green Road, Nokomis.


Police investigation into water pressure comes up empty


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

AVenice Police Depart-
ment investigation into
charges alleging the
city's utilities depart-
ment increased water
pressure to boost depart-
ment revenues could be
summed up as a case of
loose lips and no merit.
Capt. Tom McNulty,
VPD's public informa-
tion officer, conducted
the investigation in late
February and early March
after two city employees
sent e-mails to a resident
who passed on the com-
ments to the VPD.
The VPD interviewed
14 individuals.
The investigation cen-
tered around a utilities
staff meeting at which
Len Bramble, city utilities
director, allegedly said
increasing water pres-
sure to test a recently
installed altitude valve
might increase city rev-
enues. The comment
was characterized by
those who attended as
being made "in jest" and
"tongue in cheek."
But a couple of indi-
viduals took it more seri-
ously and ran with it, said
Pam Johnson, city public
information officer.
The increase in pres-
sure from 56 pounds
per square inch to 60
p.s.i. -was marginal and
occurred only four times.
Water pressure charts
provided by the city
showed that at no time


did the pressure exceed
normal levels, according
to Marc Swartz, an engi-
neer with the Sarasota
County department of
health environmental
health division.
Water pressure is regu-
larly increased to 60 p.s.i,
according to city staff,
from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. to
meet daily demands.
Nothing unusual
A staffer who docu-
mented the four occa-


sions when the pressure
was increased on his shift
said he didn't keep notes
on why it was increased,
except in one instance.
Better notes could certain-
ly be kept, he told the VPD.
Ray Burroughs, a
county environmental
specialist, went back
through records to 2003.
Nothing unusual was
noted, Burroughs states
in the report.
Increasing the pres-
sure at that level that


number of times would-
n't provide any addition-
al revenue, other utilities
staff told the VPD. One
characterized the poten-
tial impact on revenue as
"a wash."
Bramble told the VPD
he believed the whole
matter started during a
meeting he had with a
utilities staff member on
Feb. 11. Bramble said
"something suggesting
the added benefit of sell-
ing more water 'would be


a positive, but the specif-
ic need to raise the pres-
sure was to test the new
value,' according to the
VPD report.
Bramble said he was
aware that any rise in
pressure has the poten-
tial of causing water line
breaks.
Two utilities staff
members then told oth-
ers that raising the pres-
sure was an effort to
increase revenue.
"The Venice Police


I I;FA0.IVAIT1l0


Department found no
criminal intent was
involved," said City
Manager Isaac Turner. "I
am confident no action
was followed through
that would adversely
impact" customers.
At the last city coun-
cil meeting, a half-
dozen residents used
the opportunity to com-
plain about utilities rates,
saying they're too high
and questioning the
city's billing method.

MCC stands by name change


BY SYLVIA LIM
BRADENTON HERALD

Manatee Community
College President Lars
Hafner said Wednesday
that he abided by the
Sunshine Law and stands
by the way the institu-
tion's name has been
changed to the State
College of Florida,
Manatee-Sarasota.
The college's new
name did not hit the
right chord with some
community members
and has raised questions
as to whether the name
change, decided within a
month of the college's
approval to offer a four-
year nursing degree, was
lawful.
Hafner said the name
change had been dis-
cussed at various com-
munity meetings and
forums he has attended
since the college started
talking about offering the
four-year degree.
"The community had
their say when we moved
forward with baccalaure-
ate and BSN (bachelor
of science in nursing)
degree," he said.
The college's board of
trustees and Hafner had
to get the new name in
because the college plans
to roll out the program by
next January, he said.
To enroll students in
the program, the name of
the college has to reflect
its new status an insti-
tution that offers the
four-year degree, he said.
"Students who are
going to enroll in the
baccalaureate program
would not enroll in an
institution if it has a
community college as a
name," he said.
The new name need-
ed to be codified by state


lawmakers before the
legislative session is over,
and a bill in Tallahassee
could potentially make it

the college
to change its
name if offi-
cials decid-
ed to wait,
he said.
Since the
state board
Hafner of educa-
tion approv-
ed the nursing degree on
March 17, the college's
board of trustees ap-
proved the name change
on April 15.
Discussion about the
name change was not
recorded in the minutes
of the board's March 25
meeting because it was
not an official item. But
Hafner said a board
member directed him to
research the matter and
return to the April meet-
ing with recommenda-
tions.
In that meeting, Hafner
and his staff showed board
members the college's
new logo and mascot.
Experts on the Sun-
shine Law have said the
agenda for the April


meeting did not clearly
reflect that the name
change would be dis-
cussed.
"We have done every-
thing according to the
statute," Hafner said. "We
have done it transparent-
ly, and according to the
statutes and to the com-
munity college's policies."
Alexis Lambert, a
deputy general counsel
who specializes in the
Sunshine and public
records law at the Florida
attorney general's office,
said college officials did
not violate the letter of
the law, but college offi-
cials could have done a
better job notifying the
public of the discussion.
"There's case law
showing the court
rejected specific notice
requirements because
they didn't want to pre-
clude members of the
public from bringing up
issues at the public
meeting," she said.
"Many times over last
30 years, we have advised
postponing taking action
on controversial issues or
issues of critical concern
until those issues have
been properly noticed."

POLICE BEAT


Road alerts
Motorists traveling on
U.S. 41 between Bay
Street and Palm Avenue
will find one lane closed
from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.,
Monday, May 4, through
Friday, May 8, for the
milling and resurfacing
of one lane per night,
starting with the outside
(west side) southbound
travel lane.
When the resurfacing
of the outside south-
bound lane is complete,
most likely by mid-week,
the crew will change di-
rections and begin pav-
ing the outside north-
bound lane, starting
north of Palm Avenue.
The exact location of the
lane closure will change
from night to night.
The inside north-
bound lane of U.S. 41
from MacEwen Avenue
to the north end of the
North Creek Bridge will
be closed 24 hours a day
starting at 7 p.m., Sun-
day, May 3, through Sun-
day, May 10, for the in-
stallation of a new railing
on the west side of the
bridge. A new railing will
be installed on the west
side of the northbound
Catfish Creek Bridge in
this same time frame but
will not require a lane
closure. The erection of
new traffic signal mas-
tarms at the intersection
of U.S. 41 and Blackburn
Point Road also may
require intermittent eve-
ning lane closures.
A Florida Department
of Transportation project
providing for the resur-
facing of all travel and
turn lanes along the
Venice Bypass from Bird
Bay Drive to Center Road


is scheduled to begin on
Monday, May 4, with the
installation of silt fences
and erosion control
along the entire corridor.
All of this work will be
done in daytime hours
and will not require lane
closures.
The Blackburn Point
Swing Bridge will close to
vehicular traffic Tuesday,
May 26, while necessary
repairs are made to the
83-year-old bridge. The
closure is expected to last
about a month, and
vehicular traffic to and
from Casey Key will be
detoured south to the
Albee Road Swing Bridge.
Boat traffic will not be
affected.
Message boards will
be installed on all major
roadways leading to the
bridge, including U.S. 41,
State Road 681, Laurel
Road and Casey Key
Road, about two weeks
before the bridge is clos-
ed. Fire and emergency
services crews and equip-
ment will be temporarily
stationed on Casey Key
during the closure.

OK, now it's your turn


Ta-ta for now. Season's over and we're leaving. You
call us "part-time owners" to our faces and worse
behind our backs while you benefit from our dispro-
portionate property taxes and the boost we give the
local economy. While we're gone, do support those
locally owned businesses that depend on you to keep
them going until we return. You know, the ones you
curse us for crowding you out of during season. Since
you are so certain that you really don't need us, I'm
sure you're all up to the challenge.

more high taxes, no more

We want fiscal responsi-

reward failure. Let's get
back to the Constitution.
None of this is in the
Constitution. We need
fiscal responsibility in
Washington. We need
capitalism, not socialism.

to Mary Ruppel and an-

idea who she is or her
qualifications, but her
column is very well writ-

and still want, the nec-

Lucaya. It reduces speed.
We are grateful to Maxine
Barrett for helping us
make our community a
safer place. And about
Casey Key being incor-
porated. If you're doing a
survey, my answer is no.
Drugs needed. I hap-
pen to be a senior citizen,
age 90. I'm a widow of 25
years, have maintained
myself, never asked for
anything. Recently, I lost
my son, my brother and
a nephew. It's been very
difficult for me. My prob-
lem today is that I'm on
medication. I'm on drugs
called Toprol and Digitec.
I had problems when
Digitec had a recall, and I
had to wait on that one.
The biggest problem is
the Topral, which is for
the heart. I just learned
that the generic for
Toprol is not available,
and I'm out of it. I'm to
take one pill a day. They
told me they could give
me the Toprol, the real
thing; but my God, the
expense when I'm on a
small pension and Social
Security, I just cannot
afford to buy Toprol at
that cost. I wonder if there
is anybody out there that
can tell me what's going
on with Toprol if I can
get a generic or who I can
turn to to get some help?
We're supposed to be the
greatest generation,
fought all the wars, etc.,
but I tell you, we're kinda
forgotten too. But maybe
people who read your
line can tell me what to
do about getting my
Toprol at the generic
price. I sure need help.
Shoot? Yes. Thanks,
Kim Cool, for the inter-
esting and informative
article about the Cleve-
land Museum of Art. I


remember the school
field trips to the museum
as kids. We'll be sure to
visit the next time we go
home again. They allow
photos, Kim?
Her choice. It is ab-
solutely ludicrous that
Sue Lang is representing
the citizens of Venice on
city council. She has filed
10 out of 91 noise com-
plaints, according to your
paper. She picked where
she lives a long time ago.
We have enjoyed Venice
and the airport for 30
years. If Sue Lang doesn't
like it, she can just go back
to where she came from.
Unconnected. I bought
a pay-as-you-go cell
phone at a local depart-
ment store. The clerk told
me to call the 800 num-
ber listed in the box and
within five minutes I
would have my new cell
phone number. This is
not what happened.
When I called the 800
number, I got a person
from Central America
who could hardly speak
English. He asked me my
zip code. He then told me
the phone was not com-
patible with the Venice
area because they didn't
have any towers in the
941 area code area. I told
him I was going to return
the phone because it
wasn't any good for me.
He then spoke with his
supervisor who told me
that they would make a
special exception and
send me a 941 area code
phone number, but that
it would take more than
five mailing days to send
in the mail. I don't have
five days to wait; I'm
going on a trip. I'm going
to return the phone and
select another carrier.
Also, local stores should
not carry this particular
cell phone on their


shelves since this com-
pany does not readily
service this area.
Natural wash. I've got
an idea to save more
water and keep your car
clean: Use Mother Na-
ture to wash your car.
Just put it out when it
rains, bring it under
cover and wipe it down.
No water waste and the
car is clean.
Pack up. Thanks for
your service, Gondolier
Sun. Seems to me an in-
telligent person like Sue
Lang would realize that
some of us love this town,
and we've enjoyed every
bit of it. If you're so un-
happy, please, get your
friends together and
move back to where you
came from. Don't spend
anymore taxpayers' mon-
ey on your lawsuits.
Paper or ... I agree
with the person who
wrote in that there's too
much plastic being put
into the garbage and into
our landfills rather than
into recycling. However,
according to the how-to
guide for residential solid
waste, which is available
at city hall, the only plas-
tics that can be put into
the recycling are No. 1
and No. 2 plastic bottles
with necks crushed. The
list of things that cannot
be put into the recycling
bins includes butter or
margarine tubs, contain-
ers that held pool chemi-
cals or other chemicals,
egg cartons, prescription
bottles, plastic deli trays,
plastic toys, Styrofoam
and yogurt cups. So a lot
of the items this person
mentioned that should
be in recycling are not
allowed in recycling. She
should educate herself
about what is and what is
not accepted in recycling
in this area.

OPINION


GONDOLIER SUN EDITOR

OUR VIEW



Time to put the city's interests first


From a newspaper point of view,
Anthony Lorenzo's Sunshine
lawsuit is the gift that keeps on
giving. Every time it looks as though it
will hibernate until the fee hearing in
September, it raises its ugly head and
demands our attention.
If you're a city resident, however,
chances are you are getting pretty
tired of the warring between council
members or, now, between Council
Member John Moore and counselor
Bob Anderson, the city attorney.
Moore hired his own attorney to
defend him and wants him paid now,
by the city. Anderson has advised
council that the issue of reimburse-
ment is far more complicated than re-
viewing the bills and cutting a check.
For one thing, Anderson has said,
there is a question whether anyone
who chose to hire private counsel
instead of using him or the other
attorney representing the city should
be repaid at all. Separate attorneys are
needed when defendants plan to
point fingers at each other but that
was never the case here because all of
them have always said they were
innocent. Why should city taxpayers
have to pay for duplicated services?


Second, payments of more than
$100,000 require council approval;
with four members potentially mak-
ing a reimbursement claim, there
wouldn't be a quorum eligible to vote.
Finally, if that issue is resolved (by
one member probably Sue Lang,
who reportedly has the smallest bill
- waiving reimbursement, or
through appointment of a special
master), Anderson said that dealing
with reimbursement now will weaken
the city's position at the fee hearing.
Lorenzo's attorneys are expected to
ask for hundreds of thousands of dol-
lars and argue that the award should
be multiplied because of the com-
plexity and difficulty of the case.
These issues are complicated
enough that Anderson is seeking eth-
ics opinions on a couple of the ques-
tions because there are no clear prec-
edents.
That sounds like game, set, match
for Anderson to us, at least as far as
bringing this issue to closure now
goes. It might be possible to finesse
one problem, but not all three.
Moore, however, is not in the mood
to wait and has tried both increasing
the pressure on Anderson to approve


payment and doing an end run
around him by trying to persuade City
Manager Isaac Turner to do it. Both
have rightly stood their ground,
though without making any headway
in getting Moore to understand their
position.
We're sympathetic with Moore's
desire to get his attorney paid the
work is largely done and September is
months away. As a lawyer and judge,
he's well aware of the business end of
a law practice. But there's nothing
stopping him from paying the bill
himself and waiting to see how things
shake out in September. His obliga-
tion to the residents of Venice out-
weighs his interest in getting his per-
sonal financial affairs taken care of.
We know that Moore maintains his
innocence of any Sunshine Law viola-
tions, and with no trial to be held,
there will never be a judicial determi-
nation one way or the other. But his
actions and those of the other
defendants are likely to cost the
city big even before any claims for
reimbursement are resolved. The
defendants should do anything they
can do now to minimize the amount
taxpayers will have to cough up in


September.
We are also concerned about the
impact of this matter on the relation-
ship between Moore and the city
attorney and city manager. Moore has
years of legal experience but never
practiced in Florida, while Anderson
has handled the city's business for 20
years. His only motive is to protect the
city now as best he can, and it looks to
us as if that's what he's doing by urg-
ing caution and seeking outside
ethics opinions.
Turner, still new to the job, is being
put in an uncomfortable spot by
Moore. It's not fair to ask Turner, who
is not a lawyer and probably isn't fully
up to speed on the Sunshine case, to
overrule Anderson and OK the pay-
ment of Moore's fees when the city
code requires a vote of council. It's not
just a formality, as Moore thinks.
The defendants in the Sunshine
case only incurred attorneys' fees be-
cause actions they took were close
enough to the legal line to be the basis
for a lawsuit that withstood motions
for dismissal. Even though they may
claim that the settlement vindicates
them, we don't think they're in any
position to be making demands.


Cutting impact


fees a bad idea


I note with alarm the
Florida Legislature's at-
tempt to eliminate im-
pact fees charged by local
governments.
Various reasons have
been suggested. Some
have fostered the idea
that elimination of the
fees would somehow
help solve our economic
woes by stimulating the
construction industry
during this time of reces-
sion. Others are not as
interested in explaining
their motives because to
do so would expose their
self interest.
Whatever the reason, I
submit that the elimina-
tion of these fees, either
for a short time or per-
manently, would be a
serious mistake in that it
would have the effect of
making our economic
recovery more difficult.
First, let me state that
there is no evidence that
the collection of impact
fees has had any negative
effect on construction
since they were enacted
in 1983. After members
of the construction in-
dustry displayed their
opposition to the enact-
ment of the ordinance by
staging a huge parade
down Main Street, the
board of county commis-
sioners showed great po-
litical courage by voting
to begin collection of
impact fees, which would
greatly assist our county
in the funding of much
needed road improve-
ments.
The volume of new
construction since the
enactment of the impact
fee ordinance has not
been negatively affected.
In fact, many might ar-
gue that the collection of
these fees actually pro-
moted growth that might
not have occurred had
not new roads been con-


structed utilizing the new
revenue generated from
the collection of these
fees.
Local banks, realizing
that the new fees were a
cost of construction sim-
ilar to concrete and lum-
ber, allowed the fees to be
financed. Certainly the
cost of construction rose
commensurate with the
new fees charged but, as
could be expected, the
value of existing homes
gained in value as well.
This fact is the basis of
my concern. There are a
great many existing
homes for sale here in
Sarasota County and our
neighboring counties
due to foreclosures and
the need for families to
relocate because the
principle bread winner
has lost his or her job.
These homes have lost a
large portion of their
value due to the reces-
sion and the tight credit
situation that exists in
our nation. The elimina-
tion of impact fees in
order to stimulate new
construction would deal
another crippling blow to
the owners of existing
homes who would suffer
yet another loss of value
due to the need to com-
pete with the subsidized
new construction.
I would submit that
our first priority should
be to re-establish a vibrant
existing-home market.
Stimulating new con-
struction not only would
be counter-productive to
this goal, it would deprive
the taxpayers of our
county of the very source
of revenue it badly needs
for necessary public pro-
jects. Why would we en-
courage more new con-
struction and at the same
time eliminate a very
source of funding needed
to build the infrastruc-
ture the new construc-
tion requires?
We should examine
the motives of those in
the Legislature who are
promoting the elimina-
tion of impact fees. Are
they using the real pain
that this recession has
caused to promote an
agenda of self interest?
I would urge our local
commissioners to defend

Paws cause needs your help


Editor:
We are so proud of the volunteers and organiza-
tions and all the people who came out and supported
our cause, Paws for Patriots.
We have had many fundraisers in the past three
months and together we raised $10,000 for South-
eastern Guide Dog Association. This money will be
used for the raising and training of a seeing-eye dog
for a blinded veteran returning from Iraq or Af-
ghanistan.
We still have a lot to do the estimate to train one
of these dogs is $50,000. These dogs are given to our
veterans at no charge to them.
We need help. We need civic clubs, service clubs
and community clubs to join us. We would like to plan
a walkathon and picnic in the park. Since none of us
has ever done this, we would appreciate help and lots
of suggestions and ideas. Please call Jim Mowat, 484-
5406. Our next planning meeting will be May 6 at the
VFW Hall on East Venice Avenue at 7 p.m.
Another way you could help is to write letters to
our congressmen, senators and VA administrators in
Washington and Tallahassee. We need to know why
our government is not supplying these dogs to our
blinded veterans. Our government provides arms and
legs, wheelchairs and medical help. Our blinded vet-
erans should expect just as much help.
Please write today.

A climatological
Ponzi scheme
Editor:
At your paper's sugges-
tion, I went to the
Sarasota County Web site
containing the Com-
munity Conversation on
Energy and Climate sur-
vey and was amazed that
the county and, obvious-
ly, your editorial board are
so grossly uninformed re-
garding the hoax known
as "global warming."
The county survey op-
erates from the premise


that "global warming" is
an undeniable fact. Yet
there is simply no evi-
dence of the Earth per-
manently warming. We
are going to spend a
boatload of money on a
colossal scam that is
even bigger than the con-
gressional bank bailout
scam.
Under the guise of
saving the Earth, envi-
ronmental Marxists and
fascists are using un-
proven science to initiate
laws to control our prop-


erty rights and limit our
freedoms. There is no
aspect of our lives that
will not be affected by the
coming totalitarian cap-
and-trade laws, which
will tax us into bankrupt-
cy and fund the coming
world government.
Harvard climatologist
Willie Soon recently said,
"It's the sun, stupid," In
fact, 31,000 American sci-
entists, more than 9,000 of
whom are Ph.D.s, say
"global warming" is just
not happening. They say

I decided not to tell my

He and I shed a few
tears as we discussed the
surgery. After David left, I
thought about his words.
My mind recalled fel-
low cancer patients I saw
in the past years who lost
their hair, and had tu-
mors, rashes and other
signs of treatment. Then I
thought of people I knew
in wheelchairs and un-
derstood that David's
words covered many peo-
ple I knew who had some
kind of badge of courage.
I decided from then
on to always find a way to
let people know I recog-
nize their badge and ap-
plaud them for it. I hope
you will do that too.
My journey continues. I
am scheduled for a skin
graft for a small area of my
incision that needs a little
help healing. The thought
of more surgery and anes-
thetic makes me want to cry
I won't let it get me down.

graft as one of those times.
I'll bite the bullet so I can

me this will speed healing.

Bella Citta in foreclosure


BY GERALD A.
ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

A foreclosure lawsuit
filed last week against
Vesta Equity L.L.C., own-
ers of the proposed Bella
Citta development, for
failure to make interest
payments on a loan of
$5,275,000, is the latest in
a series of setbacks for
the project.
Bella Citta had won
approval by Venice City
Council in January 2008
to build 184 condomini-
ums and townhouses ad-
jacent to Sorrento Ranch-
es despite strong opposi-
tion from the neighbor-
hood, a community of 5-


CHIEF from Page 1A
Troubling for state
investigators was the lack
of any building permits
issued from the time the
former bar, Norma Jean's,
closed in 2002 until 2007.
The only thing on file was
a code enforcement in-
spection in 2005 that
documented ongoing
construction.
Behrens wrote in a
March 13, 2008, memo to
Black that upon his per-
sonal inspection of the
property in November
2007, "I could not detect
any structural work being
done that required any
permit."
It was the first time
Behrens had ever set foot
inside the property in his
13 years on the job, he
said.
He didn't address the
2005 code enforcement
inspection.
The lack of permits is-
sued between the 2005
code enforcement in-
spection and in 2007 was
troublesome for DBPR's
investigator.
At risk
Records of the inspec-
tions were not main-
tained by the city build-
ing department or the
Venice Fire Department,
concluded John Yano-
viak, DBPR contractor
who reviewed the matter.
Behrens "provides no
description of events to
indicate how the unfin-
ished interior walls of
TOTI as recorded by code
enforcement (in 2005)
happened to be clad with
finished and painted dry-
wall, covering uninspect-
ed mechanical, electrical


acre homesites.
Its homeowners asso-
ciation sought relief in
the 12th Circuit Judicial
Court, charging that
council denied the asso-
ciation due process at a
Jan. 8 public hearing.
The rezoning contin-
ued even though the
court ruled for the asso-
ciation. But the collapse
of the nation's economy
and Southwest Florida's
real estate market inter-
vened, and Bella Citta's
owners put the 46-acre
site up for sale.
First Priority Bank fil-
ed the lawsuit. It named
Vesta Equity, Dale E. Des-
jardins, Jeffrey 0. Gates,
Michael K. Greig, Step-


and plumbing installa-
tions without application
permits issued" from
October 2005 through
November 2007.
Behrens' "failure to
collaborate the findings"
of code enforcement
staff "to require code
compliance through per-
mitting ... supports the
impression that probable
cause exists that Mr.
Behrens willfully violated
provisions" of Florida
statutes by "willful mis-
conduct or negligence"
and failing to execute
duties as a licensed build-
ing code official, Yanoviak
wrote in his findings.
Mayor Ed Martin re-
ceived a similar com-
plaint, according a memo
by Black, in February
2008.
Martin said Behrens'
reputation is for being
tough but fair.


hen L. Hazeltine, James
A. McLeod, two "John
Does" and Venice as
defendants.
The city may have
been included because it
had filed a lien against
Bella Citta's owners for
$138,466 in unpaid prop-
erty taxes and interest in
2007 and 2008.
First Priority is no
longer in business. It was
seized by federal bank
regulators in August.
Desjardins, Gates, Mc-
Leod and Grieg are de-
fendants in a $35.5 mil-
lion lawsuit filed by
Orion Bank against Vil-
lages of Manasota Beach
Inc., a proposed residen-
tial development.


Martin suggested to
him that the city was
more likely to have a
complaint against the
aggressive enforcement
of codes as opposed to
an allegation of failure to
require compliance.
As recently as a month
ago Behrens issued a list
of nearly 30 outstanding
issues regarding the TOTI
property that were unre-
solved.
Penalties that could be
levied against Behrens if
he is found guilty include
or suspension or revoca-
tion of his inspector's
license and a $5,000 fine.
A handwritten note in
the city's file indicates the
city is insured up to
$25,000 in this instance,
and states Behrens will
have to pay any legal fees
that exceed that amount.

research.
Today, a microchip is
embedded under a tur-
tle's skin, carrying infor-
mation about where and
when it was tagged.
Mote also uses satel-
lite tags, which are more
expensive but allow re-
searchers to follow turtles
around the world when
they return to sea after
nesting.
When turtles surface
to breathe, a signal is sent
to a satellite.
Before, only females or
stranded male turtles
could be tagged, accord-
ing to Nadine Slimak,
spokeswoman for Mote.
"Imagine how skewed
the research could be,"
Slimak said. "We had no
understanding of what
the males do and what
females do when they
leave the beach. We're
only just now gaining
those insights."
For example, Mote
learned from new tagging
methods that in the sum-
mer of 2008, a female tur-
tle named Thunder nest-
ed eight times on Casey
Key, a world record for
any loggerhead.
"They lay 100 to 150
eggs each time," Slimak
said. "That's a lot of eggs.
That came out of satellite
tagging."
After laying those eggs,
Thunder swam across
the Gulf to feed for the
winter.
Also gleaned from new
tagging methods was the
journey of King, a male
turtle tagged and releas-
ed after being treated at
Mote's turtle rehab hos-
pital.
During the 19 months
after release, King swam
nearly 5,000 miles look-
ing for food and mates

offshore.
A map of King's travels
can be found at www.
seaturtle.org. People also
can track other satellite-
tagged turtles through
the summer at the same
Web site by clicking on
Casey Key Loggerheads.
For Vicki Lee, the old


tag wasn't her only one.
She also was tagged in
2003 with a microchip
readable by passing a
wand over the animal's
body. In fact, Vicki Lee,
which nests on Casey
Key in Southern Sarasota
County, has been tagged
four times by Mote since
1988.
Vicki Lee may be suf-
fering from lethargic log-
gerhead syndrome, which
makes animals weak,
according to her medical
evaluation.
"New technologies
such as satellite tags are
helping us fill in the
blanks on turtle's life his-
tories," said Dr. Tony
Tucker, manager of
Mote's turtle program, in
a report. "This informa-
tion is crucial for a
species that is in danger
of extinction."

Revenue losses could hurt residents


GREAT VALUES FOR OVER


County Budget
Director Steve
Botelho says mill-
age increase
unlikely.
BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER
Sarasota County's pro-
jected property tax rev-
enue shortfall could be
between $29 million and
$36.5 million in fiscal
year 2010.
Now it's up to Budget
Director Steve Botelho
and the financial plan-
ning staff to find ways to
absorb those losses in
the budget's general
fund.
For FY09, the county
budget is $1.095 billion.
In reality, commissioners
have more discretion in
the general fund, which
this year is almost $252
million.


A decrease in ad val-
orem taxes could affect
the level of service that
residents are accustom-
ed to; alternatively, resi-
dents may have to pay
for services that currently
are free.
Parks and recreation
facilities have come un-
der the budgetary micro-
scope. According to Bo-
telho, the county poten-
tially could generate new
revenues by charging for
beach or boat ramp
parking. Revenue from
paid beach parking
could bring in $1.75 mil-
lion annually. Boat ramp
parking fees could add
another $200,000.
Increases in rental and
license fees and leases
could bring in another
$100,000 annually.
Then there is a public
services tax, which could
be levied on any one or
all county utilities -
electricity, natural gas,


propane or water.
No joke
When Jeff Seward,
chief county planning
officer, and Dave Bullock,
deputy county adminis-
trator, presented a bud-
get update recently, com-
missioners at first joked
about a public services
tax, calling it "Jeff's tax."
Commissioner Nora
Patterson changed the
mood to a serious one
when she said, "I don't
think it should be reject-
ed out of hand."
The budget for fiscal
year 2010 must be ap-
proved by Sept. 30 or the
county reverts to its cur-
rent budget and is sub-
ject to fines. The first set
of budget workshops is
scheduled for June 16, 17
and 19. The final proper-
ty valuation is July 1.
Botelho said commis-
sioners will hear every
cost-cutting option the


staff can devise to handle
the shortfall and "the
board will do the best it
can."
A mini-team includ-
ing Seward, Bullock, a
human resources repre-
sentative and a few other
department representa-
tives is meeting to review
furlough options within
the county staff.
Of the $1.095 billion
budget, $88.5 million
goes to the county sheriff
and another $34.8 mil-
lion to the constitutional
officers.
County commission-
ers always have the
option to raise the mill-
age, a step Botelho thinks
they are unlikely to take.
"I think the board is
hesitant to increase the
millage," he said. "We're
assuming and planning
they're not."

TRACK AND FIELD



Venice qualifies 12 for states


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

Last year, the Class 4A state
track and field meet only fea-
tured two Venice High athletes
- a boy and a girl.
The number has increased
to 12 this year after the Class
4A-Region 2 Track and Field
Championships on Thursday
at Tampa Gaither High.
The top four in each event
qualified for the Class 4A
FHSAA Finals on Saturday,
May 9 at Showalter Field in
Winter Park.
The Venice boys qualified
nine different athletes in four
events and took ninth place
with 30 points while the Lady
Indians qualified three in
three event for 10th place with
24 points.
"Overall it was a good day,"
Venice boys coach Larry Shan-
non said. "We knew there was
going to be great competition
here at this level. We advanced
a lot of kids in a lot of races
and events."

Venice edges Manatee in regional semis

BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


In close games, the bunt plays a big
role.
On Friday night, Venice used it not
only to move runners but for base hits.
Nothing was bigger than Kelly Ott's
two-out bunt single to score the go-
ahead run as the Lady Indians pounded
11 hits en route to a 6-3 over Manatee in
the Class 5A-Region 3 semifinal at Venice
High.
Venice (21-7-1) hosts either Chamber-
lain or Tampa Plant at 7 p.m., Tuesday in
the regional final.
Tied 3-3, the Lady Indians went ahead
for good with a run in the fourth inning.
With one out, Courtney Markusson
singled. Emily Parsons reached on an
error by the shortstop moving Markusson
to third base. A strikeout produced the
second out setting the stage for Ott. On a
1-1 count, Ott laid down a perfect bunt in
front of the plate as Markusson was run-
ning home to give Venice a 4-3 lead.
"I was thinking this is my chance," Ott
said. "I didn't know anyone was going to
score on that but if I got on bases would
be loaded."
"That was just a bunt for a hit," Venice
coach Larry Sandburg said. "Girl from
third just took off. I wouldn't squeeze with
two outs."
"We knew we had to relax and play our
small ball and whatever we got to do to
get it done," Venice junior catcher
Chelsea Zgrabik said.


"We tattooed the ball," Sandburg said.
"We hit the ball really well. Right now we
are playing as well as any team we ever
had. We are making plays. These kids are
young but they are exciting. They just
make things happen. We are bunting the
ball, we are running. It's unbelievable
how much fun this is."
Venice added a run in the fifth inning
on a two-out double by Stephanie

juniors Breanna Hafeli (discus),
Heather Williams (pole vault) and
sophomore Alyssa Tresch (400-
meter dash).
For just the second time this sea-
son, Archer got beaten in the 100-
meter dash final as Chamberlain's
Dentarius Locke, who is running
track at Tennessee in the fall, sped
past him in the final 30 meters.
Archer cross the line in a school-
record time of 10.49 seconds, which
is 0.2 seconds better than his previ-
ous best. Locke won with a 10.31
seconds.
"The kid's amazing," Archer said
about Locke. "He is really fast. I've
never seen anything like it. It's just
crazy what he can do. This is my
first time going to states and really
my first season running track and it
worked out for the best."
"He just keeps getting better,"
Shannon said about Archer. "He
finally had someone to have to go
out and get. I knew it was going to
be a PR. Excited for him."
The race was a little costly for
Archer, who will be attending Kent
State University for football, after
tweaking his hamstring in the race.
Archer gutted it out and ran
anchor leg on the 4x100 relay team,
who set a personal best time in the
preliminaries in 42.31. In the final,
the Venice foursome placed third in
41.35 seconds.
"We have a lot of work to do on
our handoffs," Shannon said. "It
wasn't good at all especially in the
finals."
After five races, Archer's ham-
string couldn't take anymore so the

senior didn't finish the 200-meter
dash final after having the second-
best qualifying time of 21.46 in the
preliminaries.
"I busted it (hamstring) in the
100 final," Archer said. "Still got next
week and football coming up soon.
It hurts pretty bad."
"Look toward next week and
knowing that it's going to be a tough
day with even greater competition
and just wasn't worth the risk of
him injuring it to the point where
he wouldn't be able to run on it at
all," Shannon said.
Shannon said they will begin
treatment over the next 48 hours
and get some training in next week.
In the shot put, Steele saved his
best for last with a throw of 47 feet,
9 inches to grab a third-place rib-
bon. In the preliminaries, his best
throw was 47-2.
"It's definitely nice," Steele said
about going to states. "It's going to
be fun. All this week during prac-
tice I was constantly throwing 49-
6 and 50. Kind of a disappoint-
ment. I never really do that well in
meets. I'm a much better practice
thrower."
Steele said he wants to do better
as states this year after having one
of his worst meets of the year there
last year.
"I want to get top eight so I can
get a medal," said Steele, who will
be playing football for the
University of Toledo in the fall. "If
I don't get top eight I'm going to
be disappointed."

"I kind of though I did," Tresch
said about her chances of qualify-
ing for states. "I did it. It's a great
achievement to go to states. I felt
like I could have done better (in the
finals). I felt better in the prelims."
"She's just been outstanding,"
Clark said about Tresch. "Nothing
more I can say. She just fights it out
and keeps going."
Williams was third in the pole
vault for the Lady Indians with a
height of 9 feet, 6 inches.
In the discus, Hafeli threw it 110
feet, 10 inches which was good
enough for third place. Sarasota's
Raeann Raisor was first in 116-9.
"She was seeded fifth and I knew
she had to throw her best," Clark
said. "Did I think she had a chance.
Yes. She just had to be focused on
herself and not be distracted by
everything around her."
Venice also picked up a ribbon
from Sean Ruehr in the discus with
a throw of 131 feet, 11 inches for
eighth place and senior Dan
Medrano, who took seventh in the
pole vault with a height of 12 feet, 6

Yonker's bunt was thrown wildly at first base to run-
ners at the corners. After a fly out to second base,
Zgrabik hit her fifth home run over the left-center
field fence on a 3-1 count to knock in three runs.
"I hit second base and thought it was going to
hit the fence because that wind was coming in
hard," Zgrabik said of the home run. "I always look
for a mistake off that pitcher (Caroline Curran)
and that was my pitch I've been working at so hard
for the past two weeks: the outside high pitch."
Manatee (24-5) came right back to tie it with
three runs in the top of the fourth inning.
The Lady Hurricanes got five of their six hits in
the inning off Sullivan including a RBI double by
Tura Magley and two infield singles. With runners
at second and third, Manatee's other two runs
scored on a fielding error.
Sullivan (19-3), who had five strikeouts in the
game, got out of the bases-loaded jam with a
strikeout.
"I looked them in the eye and said 'Look, is
there anybody here who thought Manatee was
going to lay down?'" Sandburg recalled saying on
a visit to the mound. "'This is a competitive team.
They have won 24 ball games. They are not just
going to lay down. You knew this was going to hap-
pen. Make sure we get an out and get out of this
inning.'"
Manatee only had one more hit the rest of the
game.
Zgrabik, Mary Dembinski and Sullivan had two
hits for Venice.

Sarasota nervous about bonding risk in Orioles offer


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

Sarasota city commis-
sioners, who for months
have seen the county
take the lead on negotia-
tions with the Baltimore
Orioles regarding spring
training at Ed Smith
Stadium, plan to discuss
the current situation at
their May 4 meeting.
Newly installed Mayor
Richard Clapp said the
issue of city responsibility
and liability surfaced in his
talks with City Manager
Robert Bartolotta.
"The city manager
expressed concerns about
the bonding plan," Clapp
said.
In the single offer to
Baltimore, according to
county Deputy Adminis-
trator Dave Bullock, the
only pledged funds were
approximately $23.5 mil-
lion in tourism develop-
ment tax dollars and $7.5
million in grant funds
from the state Office
of Tourism, Trade and
Economic Development,
for a total of $31 million.
Because the Sarasota
County charter forbids
the county from bonding
more than $20 million
without a referendum,
Clapp said, the city -
which has no such bond-
ing restriction is being
asked to bond the $23.5
million. The bond would
be repaid with revenue
from the Tourism Devel-
opment Tax, with the
money channeled to the
city through the county.
The tax revenue comes
from surcharges, such as
those assessed for hotel
or motel room rentals.
The county is allowed a
surcharge of up to 5 cents.
If the city agrees to the
county request, Clapp
said, each year county
commissioners would
have to reauthorize the
payment of the baseball
tourism tax funds to the
city. He said that is a con-
dition to which he can-
not agree.
"It increases our risk,"
Clapp said, because a
future county commis-
sion might not agree to
reauthorize payment.
"The city is taking on
more and more risk.
We're getting a little
more nervous."
Clapp said he dis-
cussed the possibility
of two bondings with
Bartolotta, with the
county bonding a larg-
er share that wouldn't
need to go referendum
and the city bonding
the rest.
"He didn't have a real-
ly good answer," Clapp
said. The mayor said he
was told "potentially, it
could be done."
City Vice Mayor Kelly
Kirshner said that because
the 1/2-cent surcharge
has been collected for
about two years, the
county has almost $2 mil-
lion that could be used to
reduce the total amount
bonded.
Since the Orioles
rejected the county's
offer in January, the city
has entertained other
options. Most recently, a
letter of intent to buy the
stadium and complex for
$10 million has been sent
to the city. The company,
Baseline-iScouts Group
Inc. of Massachusetts,
said it would bring a
team from the Nippon
League (the Japanese
Major League Baseball
equivalent) to spring
training for games in the
Grapefruit League.
The city itself offered
the Orioles a short-term
lease at the stadium for
the next two to three
years. Thursday was the


deadline for that offer.
Kirshner said the
short-term lease has a
number of benefits. It
would stop both the city
and county from operat-
ing under pressure and
would give time to all the


parties to develop a more
convivial relationship.
"It would allow for
a cooling-off period,"
Kirshner said. In that
time, he said, all parties
could "grow in good
faith and establish a
relationship."
"(We could) identify
our needs and costs at a


slower pace," he said,
"preventing one com-
munity from competing
against another."
Bullock said the coun-
ty's offer included stipu-
lations. Those stipula-
tions, and other pro-
posed revenue sources,
are the reason the total
amount of the deal with


the Orioles varies.
He said the final
amount of any negotia-
tion would be based
upon the interest rate at
the time of the agree-
ment, and what is
included in the deal. For
instance, including the
rent from the Minor
League Twin Lakes facili-


ty was never part of the
stadium agreement.
That facility is rent-
ed annually for about
$300,000, with the money
going into the general
fund. If the rent were
taken out of the general
fund and the money used
for improvements, Bul-
lock said, then another $3


million to $4 million could
be bonded.
"There are so many
moving parts," he said.
"What are you including
in your numbers? You
really have to know what's
in it."

A HUMOROUS LOOK AT SOAPS 7B


Inspired author to


appear at library

BY JOHN MCCAFFERTY
GUEST WRITER
Garret Frey would love to move away from frequently frigid Iowa to normally
\\.11 in and sunny Florida.
Not just another young man from Iowa, Frey will be sharing his story Tuesday, May
-. ,11 the Venice Public Library, beginning at 3:30 p.m. It will be his 27th birthday and his
2 ;i d birthday since an accident snapped his spinal cord and paralyzed him from the
ne(k down.
The accident occurred on April 24, 1987, just a few days before his birthday. He
\\. i, i iding on a motorcycle with his father.
From a playful, tree-climbing youngster, Frey suddenly was transformed into a
ventilator-dependent quadriplegic.
Today, Frey doesn't even remember what it feels like to breathe on his
own. Since the accident he has had to depend on a ventilator 24 hours a day,
seven days a week, to supply the air he needs to stay alive.
He isn't able to take a step, open a door or even touch someone because
he is paralyzed from the neck down. It's likely he will remain that way for life.
The people of Cedar Rapids learned about the young boy in April 1987.
Several years later, members of the United States Supreme Court learned about
Frey, because of his mother, Charlene Frey. She insisted that her son was
entitled to a normal childhood

DR. KAREN the time, most people who were seri-
ously handicapped as children were kept in hospitals. Charlene
said that wasn't good enough because part of Garret worked fine.
She took her argument with the local school district through state courts
and finally to the nation's highest judicial body. Mother and son appeared
before the Supreme Court in November 1998. March 3, 1999, by a 7-2 vote,
the Supreme Court affirmed a lower court's decision in his favor. The ruling
set a precedent of access to public education for thousands of handicapped
children throughout the nation.

Local supporters
Celebrities such as the late actor Christopher Reeve have met the young
man. Frey met filmdom's Superman after the actor was paralyzed in an
equestrian competition in 1995. Later, Frey dedicated his new book, 'As I
Am," to the memory of Reeve, who died in 2004.
Former Vice President Al Gore, Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin,
Denver Broncos quarterback
John Elway and retired
basketball star
Scottie Pippin all
have met Frey;

The person in this area who knows Frey best is Dr.
Karen Pirnot, a clinical psychologist in Sarasota and the
coauthor of his book. Pirnot, with Frey's mother,
Charlene, will be with Frey at his library presentation on
May 5 to sign books and answer questions.
"Garret is the nicest man you ever would want to
meet," Pirnot said.
"He's an amazing young man," said the book's
editor, Susan Haley of Nokomis. Haley is a member
of the Florida Writers Association.
"I'm in awe of his courage," Venice Public
Library youth manager Joanne Lize said after
reading Frey's book.
Lize was so moved that she recommended
"N. the library buy a copy of the book. The Friends of
Venice Public Library quickly obliged.
"Venice has many compassionate residents
who will be supportive of Garret and his mother if
tI hey read about him," Lize said.
Thanks to Frey's courage, resilience and optimism,
plus support from family, friends, teachers and med-
.. ical caregivers, he has learned to live with his physical
disability. He devotes four pages of his book to
thanking the people and organizations who have

helped him through the
years. Two of the most
important people in his
life are Pirnot and her
husband, Dr. Carl Davis.
"I admire you both
immensely," he wrote.
"Thank you for all the
support and encourage-
ment you provided to me
and my mom by teaching
us to go the distance. We
are better people be-
cause of you both ...."
Dreading the beep
After the 1987 acci-
dent, doctors at Mercy
Hospital in Cedar Rapids,
University of Iowa Hos-
pital in Iowa City and
Denver Memorial Chil-
dren's Hospital in Denver,
Colo., did all they could
for Frey, including a
spinal fusion and phrenic
nerve stimulation tests.
Finally, the family's pedi-
atrician asked Pirnot,
who then lived in Cedar
Rapids, to see Frey be-
cause he was depressed,
wouldn't eat and refused
to leave his bed or wheel-
chair.
As director of chil-
dren's services in a pri-
vate practice, Pirnot rou-
tinely saw disabled chil-
dren and children who
were abused and neglect-
ed. Still, nothing pre-
pared her for the shock
she received walking into
Frey's room in pediatric
intensive care. Pirnot's
voice broke as she re-
called that first meeting.
"I just gasped," Pirnot
said. "I had never seen a
child before with that
kind of total destruction.
Even talking about it now
gets to me."
So began a psycholo-
gist-patient relationship
that continued for seven
years and a friendship
that surely will last a life-
time.

I was saddened to learn that
"Guiding Light," the longest-running
TV drama, is being canceled after a
mere 72 years on the air (57 on TV 15 as
a radio show).
I'm not a fan of the show, though I
did watch it a bit when I was a kid
because my grandmother was a fan. I
never got into the daytime soaps
because I like shows to begin and end
within their allotted daily time frame
and have some connection to reality as
I know it. And those issues are related in
the case of the soaps.
My grandmother had several of
them in her rotation, but I remember
they all had a bizarre sense of time. The
goal, obviously, was to get people
watching every day, so moving the plot
along other than incrementally might
mean someone who missed a couple of
episodes would be lost upon returning.
My recollection is that meant a woman
might be pregnant for far more than
nine months if the child's paternity
were in question.
And I know that on one of my grand-
mother's "stories," a child was born
around the same time I was and aged at
about half the rate I did, making him
eligible for elementary school about
the time I hit my teens.
But every now and then, for no
apparent reason, the plot would seem
to jump years ahead, with no one on
the show noticing. That boy who aged


so slowly at the beginning was married
with children by the time I graduated
high school.
I assume those breaks with the
show's reality occurred to reverse a dip
in ratings, or possibly to resolve a con-
tract dispute with an actor. Some
famous ones got their start in the soaps
(James Earl Jones and Cicely Tyson,
among many others, appeared on
"Guiding Light") and went on to bigger,
if not better, things.
Perhaps they should consider
returning to their roots. According to
CBS, the show is the lowest rated of the
eight soap operas still on TV and had
been on the chopping block for quite
some time. CBS Paramount Television
Group chief Nancy Tellem said it "had
kind of run its course."
The real reason, no doubt, is that
truth is stranger than fiction. Dr. Seuss
on acid couldn't possibly come up with
the kind of "drama" on display on any
episode of "The Jerry Springer Show,"
which is much cheaper to produce: the
host's salary, a couple of security
guards, a couple of camera guys and
someone to mop up after the audience
members who foam at the mouth are
the major expenses.

This was not the first service
project carried out by the
church in this area. Last
November, the church donat-
ed food valued at thousands of
dollars to the Venice Salvation
Army in addition to blankets
and hygiene kits. Similar con-
tributions have been made in
Lee and Collier counties. After
Hurricane Charley, the church
sent construction supplies to
repair roofs, truckloads of food
and basic necessities to assist
families and worked to set up
warehouses filled with desper-
ately needed supplies to help
rebuild this area of Florida.
As Christians, church mem-
bers believe that service to
their fellow man should be an
integral part of their daily lives.
This fishing event was a won-
derful opportunity to serve a
very special group of our
neighbors.

Pirnot said. "But you see peo-

according to a script written by
the American Psychological

"Basically, we had the brain
to work with; here was
absolutely no motion below
the neck and there was limited
motion in the turning of the
head."
Because of his plight, the
young Frey was frustrated,
depressed and even terrified at
times that his ventilator would
malfunction and cut off his air
supply.
"I oftentimes would lie
awake at night wondering if
the nurses would actually
come if they heard the
screeching beep of a malfunc-
tioning ventilator," Frey wrote.
"To this day, I still have fears
that some day no one will hear
the beep and my time on this
Earth will be up."
Frey had just turned 5 when
he and Pirnot met. Recog-
nizing his intelligence and
good verbal skills, she devised
a plan to speed up the matura-
tion of his brain.
"By the time Garret was 11
or 12 years old, he would be

Travels
Pirnot had been trained in
clinical hypnosis and used it
to take him away to places
where he would feel comfort-
able and relaxed. She taught
him deep relaxation tech-
niques and developed a sys-
tem of stimulating mental
exercises designed to help him
live day by day in his situation.
She also taught him to ask oth-
ers to "please be my hands" or
tell them "I could use a pair of
feet."
With her imagining tech-
niques, Pirnot took Frey on
vicarious "trips" to a warm
sandy beach, to an Easter egg
hunt, to go mountain climb-
ing, on an undersea adventure,
even to the planet Pluto.
She also got him involved in
a yearlong project to think up
and illustrate stories about
children and the problems
they experience growing to
adulthood. This project result-
ed in a book of stories with
titles such as "Sad Sam's Silly
Song," "Oscar the Opinionated

ny the Butterfly."
As a reward for these and
other tasks successfully com-
peted, Frey and his family
finally earned a real and long-
awaited trip to Dinosaur
National Monument in Utah.
FAQ
Only the person with the
disability really knows what it
is like to live day-to-day as a
quadriplegic, but Frey shines a
bright light on that mystery in
his book.
Frey describes the frustra-
tions he felt as a student from
kindergarten through high
school. But he also writes
about good times he has had
with loyal friends, including
trips to ball games, concerts
and other social events.
Though he enjoys flying, he
rarely travels by plane because
it's difficult to accommodate
all the equipment and supplies
he needs when he travels.
He explains how he moves
about in his "Sip-N-Puff" mo-
torized wheelchair, and how
he operates a computer with
the aid of an instrument
known as a Headmaster. It's
placed on his head and emits

Frey includes answers to
questions he is frequently ask-
ed and devotes a chapter to
"Things You May Not Want to
Know" (such as cleaning, hy-
giene/personal care, catheteri-
zation, bowel procedure and
other topics. He even writes
about one time when he tried
to take his own life and anoth-
er when he was partying with
friends and became ill from a
small amount of alcohol.
Frey writes lovingly about
his parents and older brother
Kevin, and describes family
tensions that followed the
accident, causing him to get
the most attention. He was
saddened when his parents
grew apart and eventually
divorced but he continued to
admire both. His father, Jerry,
died recently, as this article
was being written.
True heroine
The book's title came from a
poem, 'As I Am," written to
Frey by Pirnot. It's reprinted in
the book, as are the court case
rulings.

to humankind," Pimot said. "I
asked him what he would want
most in the world and he said,
'It would not have to be a cas-
tle. It would be to be able to
touch another human being.'"
Charlene Frey is not quoted
in the book but it is clear that
she is, in her son's words, "a
true heroine in a world of pre-
tenders."
She has been and continues
to be Garret's primary caretak-
er. More than anyone, she took
his legal case through a
lengthy court process up to the
Supreme Court. For many
years, she has been the family
breadwinner, working night-
shift and double shifts and
even on a loading dock to be
able to pay for Garret's needs.
The Freys would love to
move to a modest house in
Florida that can be retrofitted
to meet Garret's situation. To
do so, Charlene would need to
sell their house in Cedar
Rapids and find a job and suit-
able house in this area.
Even with the help of Pirnot
and her husband, that won't be
easy in today's economy. But
after what Garret and his
mother have been through,
who says they need easy?

ON HEARING
AIDS?
Friendship Hearing of
Venice and Englewood

So many hearing aid
companies advertise low

a much higher number.
There is NO reason to pay
exorbitant prices for hearing
aids. Friendship Hearing offers
top quality digital hearing aids
at the GUARANTEED best
prices in the area. We will
BEAT anyone's price by 15%!!!
Friendship Hearing has been
serving Venice since 1992

Bright sunlight

Great Blue herons and white egrets

REAL ESTATE COLUMN




Meet Karen Rolland ...


2009 president of Punta Gorda-Port Charlotte-North Port Association of Realtors


By NANCY F. PADGETT
ADVERTISING MANAGER
As an Illinois native,
born in South
Holland, a suburb
of Chicago, Karen Rolland
is happy to have found
home in Punta Gorda.
Purchasing a home in
2001 and moving perma-
nently to Punta Gorda
Isles in 2002 with
husband of 20-plus years,
Ken, Rolland soon
decided to pursue a
career in real estate. Both
Rollands are Realtors and
sell real estate as a team
with the Punta Gorda
office of Prudential
Florida Realty.
When asked what
brought them to our area,
she responded, "We lived
on Lake Minnetonka, just
west of Minneapolis, for
almost 20 years in
Minnesota and knew that
we wanted to retire on or
near water in a warmer
climate. Ken grew up in
Miami and we had family
and friends all over
Florida. My uncle's family
settled in Punta Gorda in


the '60s, my cousin
owned one of the first
homes in PGI, and, in
fact, he and his sister
opened the first Dunkin
Donuts on U.S. 41 in
Punta Gorda. My family
spent winter months in
the area and when I was
about 15 I came here on
spring vacation. The jewel
of the town was the new
Holiday Inn! After my
mother passed away, my
sisters and I read her
journals and throughout
she mentioned the
Riviera Oyster Bar,
Fishermen's Village, the
new U.S. 41 bridges, and
the nice weather on the
south side of the Peace
River. When we decided
to move permanently, we
started looking in
Sarasota and drove down
the coast visiting each
community along the
way. Punta Gorda was
exactly what we wanted.
We love boating and
fishing, loved Charlotte
Harbor and the barrier
islands, and were not too
far from family and
friends. Last, but not

Port Charlotte-North Port
Association of Realtors.
least, this area had the
most to offer and at a
very reasonable price."
Rolland's real estate
career is a far cry from
her previous professional
life ... 18 years in
banking, a vice president
of a municipal bond
underwriting firm, the
director of administration
for a company which
provided employee
benefits and later, the
marketing director for the


same company.
However, true to her
personality to be the best
she can be, once Rolland
decided on a real estate
career, she got involved
and moved through the
ranks with both the
Association of Realtors
and the local Chapter of
the Women's Council of
Realtors. She has served
as Secretary, president-
elect and president of the
Women's Council, and
secretary of the MLS
Board, president-elect,
and currently is the
president of the
Association of Realtors.
To prepare for her
leadership roles, the
energetic and personable
role-model, has received
several Realtor designa-
tions including, Graduate
Realtor Institute (GRI),
Performance
Management Network
(PMN), E-Pro, At Home
with Diversity and she is
currently a Certified
Residential Specialist
candidate. Rolland
earned a bachelor's
degree at Loyola


University of Chicago, in
finance and manage-
ment, and a master's
degree in finances from
DePaul University of
Chicago.
The Rollands are
boaters who enjoy
fishing, cooking and their
pets ... Kassie, a dalma-
tian/black lab mix; Molly,
a boxer, shar pei, bulldog
mix and Sammie, a
toothless cat who thinks
he is a dog all were
adopted.
They are members of
TEAM Punta Gorda, the
PGIslanders cruise club
and she is an
Entertaining at Home
consultant in her spare
time. Step-daughter,
Laura, and her husband,
Shawn, live in
Minneapolis. As the
youngest of six, three
brothers and two sisters,
Rolland says she is
blessed with 11 nieces
and nephews, 21 great
nieces and nephews, and
one great-great nephew.
Family get-togethers are
never boring!
When asked what she


sees in her future, she
responded, "When we
first moved down, we
weren't sure what we
wanted to do, but quickly
became bored with being
at loose ends. I have
always been involved
with marketing, sales and
management. Ken and I
are very accustomed to
the independence of
being self-employed. I
had always thought that I
would enjoy real estate,
so I decided to get my
license. I fell in love with
it and knew that Ken
would enjoy it, too. So, he
took the course three
weeks after I did and here
we are. We work together
as a team and comple-
ment each other's
strengths and weak-
nesses. (Writer's note:
none are apparent!) Our
clients come first with us
and assisting them is a
pleasure and we get paid
to do what we like in an
area that we love!"
The dynamic duo
seems to best describe
the Rolland team ...
Minnesota's loss was
certainly our gain.

t is Spring and time
to plant seeds. Not
only in our yards or
gardens but also in our
values. We love to see
the beauty of the
colorful flowers and
benefit from the bounty
of our gardens, but we
also need to cultivate
and replant our own
code of values.
Have you ever thought
about what your values
are based on? What you
live by daily and don't
really think about.
Maybe it's time to
reflect on what we have


planted in our value
gardens. Do we have a
row of ethics, a row of
respect, a row of
compassion, a row of
love, a row of forgive-
ness?
This garden can be as
large as you want, as
long as you continue to
fertilize, pull the weeds
and appreciate the
results. Have we gotten
away from our original
values? Maybe it's time
to replant.
Do you put family
first? Kids will grow up,


parents and friends will
die. We need them all to
know we love them,
respect them and will
miss them when they're
gone.
Your co-workers -
what are the values at
work? Are you fair and
honest? Do you live with
a good code of ethics-
with your customers
and co-workers alike?
Do you treat people the
way that you expect to
be treated?
We can all make a
difference in how our


futures will turn out.
Let's just think back at
how we were brought
up. We were taught to
respect our elders, do
more than what was
expected of us,
remember our manners,
among numerous other
values. Have we
forgotten them? No, I
don't think so, we have
just not gone back and
rechecked our lists
lately.
Maybe that should be
part of our Spring
cleaning or Spring
planting.


Remember, we reap
what we sow. Just like a
good, crisp apple. We
can all be good to the
core.
What have you
planted and will it grow?
Grow with hope and
confidence that our
future will be great if we
just put value in our
lives and spread that
value to others. Always
remember to "Think
Positively." Enjoy
Spring, and to our
"Snowbirds" drive
carefully going back up
North.

Waiting 40 years for a 1955 Crown 'Vicky'


es, it's true, Tom
Eisaman did wait
40 years before the
right timing, the right car
and right price finally
came together to result
in his purchase of the
beautiful Crown Victoria
seen here today.
It's a long story of how
many "things" kept him
from being able to obtain
the car of his dreams,
few of which he regrets.
It all started when he
was 16 and his father
owned a 1956 Crown
Victoria. Tommy was
fascinated by the looks of
this auto with its unique
bright metal band that
swept over the rakish
roof, making this car very
different from other
vehicles.
He asked his dad to sell
it to him and this young
man worked every kind
of job he could find.
Somehow his step-
mother convinced his
father to sell it to
someone else, which
broke his heart.
Tommy was used to
working long and hard
by then and he did just
that, learning the air-
conditioning and heating
trades. After enough of
the cold Pennsylvania
winters, he moved to
Florida to be near his
brother in the Port
Charlotte area. A job in
the A/C business kept
him busy, but one day an
idea to go into business
for himself became
reality. That was the
beginning of Tommy's
Air Conditioning, now a
40-year-old company.
Along the way, Tommy
married and became the
father of three daughters
who in turn produced
five grandchildren. His
wife became seriously ill
and passed away,
however, through the
years, the desire for a
Crown Victoria stayed
with him.
As it happened, a nice
1957 Chevrolet two-door


sedan came along and
occupied whatever free
time there was to do a
required restoration. But
still no Crown Vic!
Years ago, Tommy did
the air-conditioning
installation at a new
house being built by a
then-young couple. Fate
took the life of the
husband after a long
illness, leaving Jane a
widow. She and Tommy
eventually got together
and the two married two
years ago.
While out at events
where there were old
cars, the subject of
wanting a 1956 black and
white "Crown Vicky" kept
coming up. A joint
decision was made to
not wait any longer.
Forty years was long
enough, and they started
looking everywhere for
such a model. It seemed
like all the good ones
were not for sale and
going through a full
restoration didn't appeal
to them.
Finally in Hemmings
Motor News, an original
1955 black-and-white
featuring a real
Continental Wheel with
only 39,000 miles was
listed. Not a 1956, but
close enough to warrant
an investigation about its
background which
revealed being sold new
in Oregon, then Vermont
and not used at all in
winter.
The Eisamans bought
this dream car with the
intent of keeping it
forever. Both are full of
smiles when talking
about their "baby" and
grin widely when riding
or driving this rare
machine. They surely


SUN PHOTO BY LEE ROYSTON


have a right to! Can you
imagine waiting 40 years
for anything?
In all my 50 years of
writing about the car
hobby, this couple holds
the record. They have
other interests too,
including a 32-acre farm
with eight beef cattle, 50
chickens, two horses,
four dogs and one
Macaw, which all keep
them super busy.
Here's something to
remember: A vehicle that
was an image when it
was new and in demand
- convertibles are a
good example is likely
to be the body style to
own. This includes the
1955-56 Ford Crown
Vickies. Just ask any guy
or lady of that era, and
they will say you could
really "make the scene"
in one of those.
Some brief specs on


Tommy's Vicky: The
engine is a Y block, 292
cubic inches, with an
auto transmission and
198 HP. It weighs 3,313
pounds. The base price
was $2,202. Ford sold
33,165 in 1955 and only
9,209 during 1956.
I must tell you this
style was so popular, J.C.
Whitney and Warshawski
Co. marketed for a while
a roof kit that could be
installed on a regular
two-door sedan or two-
door hardtop which gave
a halfway look of a
Crown Victoria. It was
short-lived because the
real ones were so much
better.
Yes, both are VMCCA
members and can be
seen at shows and
cruise-ins. Matter of fact,
they won a special award
at the recent AACA show
in Gilchrist Park two


weeks ago.
This classy beauty is
expected to be on exhibit
at the Redfish Cup
Tournament in Laishley
Park Saturday and
Sunday. It's a great family
event with plenty to see
and do, especially the
diving dogs. ESPN2 will
show it live too!
