City expecting red ink in 2010


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


Despite a projected deficit,
city of Venice administrators
plan to introduce next year's
budget without an increase in
the millage rate as a starting
point for discussions. Budget
talks begin in August.
"The assumption is, you
want us to stay within the cur-
rent millage rate?" City Man-
ager Isaac Turner asked city
council members during the
annual strategic planning ses-
sion held last week. Council


members agreed his assump-
tion was correct.
Based on that, Turner said
he would look at collective bar-
gaining "alternatives" that in-
clude limiting raises, "if any,"


during upcoming union nego-
tiations. Management restruc-
turing would also be likely,
Turner said.
Finance Director Jeff Snyder
said the city will spend more
than the budgeted $1.2 million
in reserves this year to make
up for lower ad valorem tax
revenue, which dropped 16
percent this year. He antici-
pates a continued decline by
another 6 percent next year.
Budget watchdogs chided
Snyder last year for an ultra-
conservative estimate of city
revenues that would be gener-


ated from the 1-cent sales sur-
tax. The new estimate is even
lower than Snyder anticipated,
and $4 million lower than the
county estimated the city
would realize.
Bonding is no longer an
option, Snyder said, and the
city's market rating has been
downgraded three times since
the economic downturn.
City reserves are dropping
quickly. Snyder estimates the
city can afford only two more
years like this before it runs
into trouble.
A best-case scenario facing


the city is a $1.5 million short-
fall, Turner said, but it "proba-
bly" will be more like $2.5 mil-
lion by fiscal year end. That
doesn't include an estimated
$1 million to $2 million in
attorney fees alone for the
Sunshine case and other litiga-
tion that remains unsettled.
"We don't have any answers
just now," Turner said.
Mayor Ed Martin wanted to
know what actions council will
have to take to reduce the bud-
get. They may include revisit-

Two swine flu



cases in county


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY

Sarasota County Health De-
partment officials have an-
nounced two cases of swine
flu, in two boys ages 2 and 10.
Both children have been
under the care of a physician.
Neither child was hospitalized.
The older child is now back at
Tuttle Elementary School in
Sarasota.
"The health department
has been preparing for the
possibility of cases since this
outbreak began and is taking
appropriate, responsible steps
to protect our community,"
said Scott Pritchard, epidemi-
ologist for the health depart-
ment.
At press time, Florida had 23
confirmed cases in the follow-
ing counties: one in Alachua,
Clay, Indian River, Okeecho-
bee, Orange, Seminole and
Pinellas; two in Dade; three in
Lee; five in Broward; and six in
Hillsborough.
Manatee, Okaloosa, Palm
Beach, Lake, Duval, Collier,
Pinellas and Marion had one
probable case each. Lee and
Sarasota had two. Broward and
Dade had three.
On Tuesday, the Centers for
Disease Control and Preven-


tion revised its recommenda-
tions regarding closures for
schools with children diag-
nosed with swine flu. Instead
of immediately closing a
school when a student or fac-
ulty member has a probable or
confirmed case of this virus,
the Sarasota County School
District, Health Department
and Emergency Management
will follow the CDC recom-
mendations as the primary
means to reduce spread of
influenza in schools by focus-
ing on:
Educating parents, faculty
and staff of the symptoms of
flu, and urging that they stay
home from school or alterna-
tive child care if they are sick.
Early identification of chil-
dren with symptoms of the flu
such as fever over 100 degrees,
cough, sore throat, tiredness,
so that parents can be notified
to seek the care of their family
physician. Since flu germs
from coughs and sneezes can
live on hard surfaces for over
two hours, all hard surfaces
will be wiped down with a
cleanser that kills the influenza
virus.

Venice City Council mem-
bers spent as much time de-
bating whether to have a
closed meeting as they did in
the meeting.
Council eventually decided
Wednesday evening to hold
the shade (out of the sunshine)
meeting regarding the Sun-
shine lawsuit brought by An-
thony Lorenzo.
Council members John
Moore and John Simmonds
raised concerns that a discus-
sion about whether to pay pri-
vate attorneys' fees could draw
another Sunshine law com-
plaint, especially after Michael
Barfield, a legal consultant to
Lorenzo, told the Gondolier
Sun that could be the case.
City Attorney Bob Anderson
assured council that only the
timing of the payment of attor-
neys' fees would be discussed


... a meeting


and was allowed under shade
meeting rules. He wanted to
discuss whether there are
advantages to reimbursing
those fees now versus waiting
until after September, when an
evidentiary hearing is held in
which a judge will decide the
amount the city will be re-
quired to pay Lorenzo's attor-
neys. Anderson assured coun-
cil members they would not be
making any decisions at the
meeting.
That assurance wasn't
enough for Moore, who re-
portedly didn't attend the
shade meeting.
"I'm not saying you should-
n't do this," Moore told his fel-
low council members prior to
the meeting, "but I may be
stepping over the line by at-
tending that. These two things
are so intertwined ... I'm
going to get sued when that

Keeping track of sex offenders


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR


People all across America
live with registered sexual of-
fenders and predators in their
neighborhoods.
Venice is no exception.
Currently, there are no reg-
istered sexual predators in the
city limits of Venice. There are,
however, 14 registered sexual
offenders that the local police
monitor.
Is your neighbor one of
them? For that information,
citizens can visit the Florida
Department of Law Enforce-
ment'sWeb site, fdle.state.fl.us
and click on sexual offender
database under Search Our
Systems on the left side of the


screen.
Venice Police Department
Detective Alex Gregoire moni-
tors all sex offenders and is in
charge of seeing that officers
carry out the monthly sex
offender checks.
"We go beyond what FDLE
mandates that we do because
we feel so strongly about the
safety of our children," said
VPD Chief Julie Williams.
"They don't require us to
know their (offenders) cars
and tags for example," said
VPD Capt. Tom McNulty. "But
we know them, and we keep a
record."
Recently, an offender and a
predator moved in together in
the Venetian Golf & River
Club. VPD officers responded


by calling the club's manage-
ment team and knocking on
doors notifying the neighbors.
Williams and McNulty said
there are several things peo-
ple can do to keep themselves
and their children safe.
"Check the FDLE Web site
often they update it daily,"
McNulty said. "Talk to your
neighbors and develop age-
appropriate communication
with your kids."
"Decide on a code word
that only you and your chil-
dren know, and don't tell any-
one what it is unless there is a
9-1-1 emergency and you
absolutely have to depend on
someone to go pick up your

Letter Carriers'
annual food drive
is Saturday.
Letter carriers
have distributed
bags for nonper-
ishable food items.
Organizers ask that
no glass containers
be put into the bags
because of the risk
of breakage.
Residents can put
food in bags and leave

them on or by their mail-
boxes. If they don't have
a food-drive bag from a
letter carrier, any bag
will do, organizers said.
They can leave more
than one bag as well,
S organizers said.
"If they left a bag
thinking we already
did the food drive,
they are welcome to
leave another," food
drive organizer Nancy
Kimball said. "We
r need all the help


we can get this
ar. The food pantries are get-


ting more people coming in look-
ing for help than ever.
"If anyone is leaving to go back
up north, they can leave it with
their neighbor or bring it to the
post office."

An awesome ride
BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER

Sharky's on the Pier's seventh annual
Ride the Beaches bicycle ride was again a
huge success, with more than 400 cyclists
participating in this year's event. Money
raised goes to help support the Lance
Armstrong Foundation in its fight against
cancer.
The morning of the ride I was turning
onto Airport Road when the first wave of
cyclists approached from the west. In that
special glow of the early morning sun, the
view of approximately 50 cyclists outfitted
in their bright-colored riding jerseys and
helmets was a sight to behold exactly the
vision I have in helping make Venice a bicy-
cle friendly community.
The highlight of the ride for me centered
on one of the people I rode with. He was
challenged by not having the use of his legs,
but that did not deter his passion for cycling
or his various accomplishments. It didn't
hurt either that he was a conservationist.
His bicycle was a three-wheel recumbent
with a modified chain drive so he could
pedal using his hands and arms. I felt that
our pairing during the ride was somehow
arranged so we could share our views.
To all the folks at Sharky's who helped
with this event, thank you. This is another
reasonVenice is special.
Ride safe, ride smart.

More sites available for


new Sarasota County jail


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER


Members of the Sarasota County jail
siting work group got their first look
Wednesday at privately owned lands
and a better look at publicly owned
lands that meet the current guidelines
for a new jail.
Site criteria include: a total parcel
size of 30 acres or more, located within
Sarasota County, more than 1/2-mile
from any type of school outside of
storm evacuation zones A and B and
outside of environmentally sensitive
and preservation lands.
Among the nine private sites prof-
fered, following a site submittal request
to local real estate brokers, are four in
South County. The southernmost site is
at Toledo Blade Boulevard near the exit
at Interstate 75 in North Port. A second
site is at Stoner Road, east of
Englewood Road (State Road 776) in
North Englewood. Two other sites are
on either side of 1-75 Knights Trail
Road north of Laurel Road in Venice,
and 1562 Ranch Road, approximately 1
1/2 miles from Laurel Road.
The five other private sites are in
north or central parts of the county.
Four are located in the loosely connect-
ed area of Fruitville and Center roads
and Palmer Boulevard. The fifth site is
on North Orange Avenue in Sarasota.
The jail would house 300 beds and
include a central intake center. The pre-
liminary cost for construction is esti-
mated at $44 million.
The Community Partners Work
Group, under the aegis of the Criminal
Justice Commission, is expected to
review and rank potential sites by late
summer to send to the CJC. The top
three sites will be submitted to the
county commissioners, who are
expected to direct technical staff to
evaluate the sites. A decision on a final


site is not expected until early 2010.
Wayne Applebee, county criminal
justice policy coordinator, said dur-
ing the work group meeting at Laurel
Community Center that the map
illustrating the nine private sites (and
a rejected site in Manatee County) is
not definitive. He said no judgment
has been made by county staff as to
whether the parcels meet the siting
criteria.
"We will clearly identify those that
are excluded," he said, indicating an
updated list would be ready for the
work group's next meeting May 20.
A few times during the meeting,
Applebee talked of the newjail as even-
tually being the only detention facility
in the county. Afterward, Applebee said
the likelihood of that happening
wouldn't be for another 60 to 100 years.
His comments, he said, were based
on the fact that the jail (located in the
city of Sarasota) already has sections 20
and 30 years old. He said the building is
"an expensive facility to maintain."
At previous work group sessions,
members heard of five potential sites
on publicly owned lands, two in North
Port. The first is off Toledo Blade
Boulevard and north of 1-75. The sec-
ond is located east of River Road.
Wednesday, the work group received
a more detailed map delineating the
areas of publicly owned lands that meet
the guidelines.
The ability to modify the siting crite-
ria was discussed by the group mem-
bers and county staff, with Applebee
saying it could be changed if no lands
meet the requirements.
For instance, if a multistory facility,
and not the current proposed single-
story building, were to be included,
then a parcel smaller than 30 acres
could be considered.

CITY NOTES


COMPILED BY
NEWS EDITOR GREG GILES


Airport workshop Tuesday
Venice City Council holds a work-
shop regarding Venice Municipal
Airport on Tuesday, May 12, from 9 to
11:30 a.m. in council chambers at
Venice City Hall, 401 W Venice Ave.
DY Consultants will present informa-
tion regarding the process and schedule
for updating the airport master plan
and explain the aircraft count now
under way. The consultants will also
brief council members about chal-
lenges and opportunities for the airport.
The workshop precedes a regularly
scheduled city council meeting begin-
ning at 1:30 p.m.
City told to pay attorney fees
A judge has ordered the city of
Venice to pay fees related to the ongo-
ing short-term rental case.
Judge Robert Bennett ruled April 27
that Jacksonville businessman Steve
Milo is entitled to attorney fees for suc-
cessfully challenging a city planning
department determination that short-
term rentals were not legal in single-fam-
ily residential neighborhoods in the city.
Milo, who rents out more than a
dozen homes in Venice, appealed the
2006 decision. The city planning com-
mission agreed with Milo, but city
council overturned the planning com-
mission's decision. Milo appealed
council's decision in court and Bennett
ruled in his favor, saying the city didn't
specifically rule out short-term rentals
in its current ordinance.
The city is drafting an ordinance to
ban the rentals. Milo's attorneys have
threatened to litigate over that policy
change too. A call to Richard Rumrell,
Milo's attorney, was not immediately
returned.
Holcombe resigns
Assistant City Manager Mary
Holcombe finished a 10-year stint with
the city last week. She resigned quietly,
citing a desire to be near her twin chil-
dren now in college in North Carolina.
Holcombe rose through the ranks,
starting out in the city clerk's office. Her
soft-spoken manner and human rela-
tions background proved especially use-
ful when it came to union negotiations


and negotiating preannexation agree-
ments. She eventually supervised the
city's administrative services depart-
ment and IT department, among others.
She was close to former city manag-
er Marty Black, and turned down the
opportunity to step into his shoes as
interim city manager when he resigned
last year amid political turmoil.
Calesimo running
Emilio Carlesimo is the first person
to submit the necessary paperwork to
file for Seat No. 3 in November's city
council election. He unsuccessfully ran
last year for a council seat, losing in a
three-way race to Kit McKeon.
Council Member John Simmonds,
who currently holds the seat, said he
won't seek another term.
"It's been a miserable year,"
Simmonds said.
Now in his 60th year in public ser-
vice, Simmonds said he had only one
year that was worse while serving in
Vietnam.
City purchases indigent's home
The city of Venice is the new owner
of a vacant lot in Hatchett Creek Mobile
Home Park.
In 2008 Audrey Allen-Wordell was
evicted from the property by the city after
failing to maintain the home and default-
ing on park assessments. City officials
found her and her husband a place to
stay in Grove Terrace low-income apart-
ments, but Allen-Wordell was forced to
leave there when the Venice Housing
Authority vacated residents to prepare for
a future redevelopment project.
The city was the highest bidder at
auction, securing the property for
$11,000 in March.
Fertilizer ordinance coming
City Attorney Bob Anderson this
week said city council is only two
months away from considering a pro-
posed fertilizer ordinance.
The city began by attempting to
adopt the county's ordinance, but
county officials said they don't have
funds to enforce the measure within
municipalities. That forced the city to
revise its draft policy.
The county implemented its ordi-
nance two years ago reducing the use of
fertilizers.
"We are on it now," Anderson said.


City pares down its



comprehensive plan


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Citing a full plate and dwindling rev-
enues, Venice City Council members
decided last week not to take on any
more large projects or initiatives.
Instead, they're hoping to finish what's
already on their plate.
Finishing the draft comprehensive
plan, they agreed, is by far the single
most important task at hand, followed
closely by revising land development
regulations required to implement the
plan and ensure height and density are
reduced throughout the city.
The comp plan, already more than a
year behind schedule, and the regula-
tions are at least two years out from
completion at the current rate.
Council members tried to light a fire
under the city administration to
encourage redevelopment of the old
Circus Arena. Kit McKeon urged the
city to explore options that include
offering the space to the federal govern-
ment for a new post office. In return,
the city could take over the existing
post office and possibly turn it into a
parking garage, alleviating another
high-profile dilemma.
Mayor Ed Martin and other council
members urged City Manager Isaac
Turner to proceed with haste in the
effort to position the city to purchase
the Venice Jet Center. The jet center,
currently in receivership after owner
Art Nadel was arrested for fraud, is
expected to be sold in the not-too-dis-
tant future. The proceeds would be


used reimburse investors of Nadel's
hedge fund that went belly up.
Turner said the city could be receiv-
ing a marketing packet from the receiv-
er any day. If the city can afford it,
Martin said, it might be able to negoti-
ate with the Federal Aviation
Administration to keep certain types of
aircraft (presumably those that are
loud) from frequenting the airport.
Martin also said he thought an FAA-
sponsored Part 150 noise study is
inevitable at some point. That could
signal a turning point in negotiations
between the airport and activists
opposed to any development at the air-
port. Council Member Sue Lang has
opposed such a study in the past.
The study could be a double-edged
sword. If it confirms a noise problem,
that could lead to a push to purchase
homes in the flight path or spend funds
on expensive noise mitigation mea-
sures. If the study shows there isn't a
noise problem, it would undercut
efforts of activists who want to see,
among other things, jets and flight
schools banned or discouraged from
using Venice Municipal Airport.
"It's time for real leadership not just
mere management," said strategic
planning facilitator Larry Ritcey. "Good
leadership, not bad leadership. ... I'm
talking about credibility, because you
need it. If you are going to lead, you are
going to have to have credibility. You
can't just want to do right, you have to
do right. You have to deliver."

Do your direct-mail homework


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

Margaret Butler of South Venice
called the Gondolier Sun on Friday to
say she had received a warranty letter
and thought it was a scam.
It's not, but she was wise to question
it anyway.
The letter, from Warranty Activation
Headquarters in St. Louis, Mo., encour-
aged Butler to extend the bumper-to-
bumper coverage on her vehicle.


"I think they are preying on widows
who will be scared when they read the
cost of car repairs in this letter," she
said. "The envelope didn't even have a
return address."
Detective Howard Dunn of the
Venice Police Department didn't think
the letter qualified as a scam, but might
fall into the category of less-than-best
business practices.
"The letter isn't asking for any per-
sonal information or any money up
front," he said. "But it pays to read any


mail like this very carefully."
An Internet search revealed several
complaints about Warranty Activation
Headquarters on blog sites, including
800notes.com. The search also showed
that the Better Business Bureau of
Eastern Missouri gives the business a
"D" rating.
According to its site, the BBB of
Eastern Missouri has received numer-
ous complaints against this company
alleging difficulty in canceling war-
ranties and obtaining refunds, mislead-


ing advertisements, poor customer ser-
vice, failure to cover repair costs and
misrepresentation of the warranty cov-
erage, among other complaints.
Warranty Activation Headquarters
isn't the only warranty company that
sends out information like this.
Dunn said it is always a good idea to
check with your auto dealer about your
warranty.
"Usually, these types of warranties
aren't as good as the dealers'," he said.

OUR VIEW



Legislature right on seat belts, cameras


T he Florida Legislature got it
right this session when it failed
to pass a bill allowing red-light
cameras but strengthened the state's
seat-belt law.
Red-light camera legislation has
inched forward in recent years but
finally seemed to be on the road to
passage last week. While proponents
have always insisted the measure was
strictly a matter of safety, the state's
current budget problems propelled it
onto the fast track.
You didn't have to squint too hard
to see why. Initial estimates said a
new film-and-fine camera system
might bring the state $56 million in
new-found revenues. That figure grew
larger and larger, though, which
attracted increasing support, then
proved to be its undoing.
Similar bills passed the House by a
101-7 vote, then the Senate 35-2.


Despite that overwhelming support,
everything fell apart in conference
late in the week. The issue was over
how to carve up what looked to be a
big pie.
Rep. Ron Reagan, R-Bradenton,
who was the prime sponsor of the
House bill, told the Bradenton Herald
his version of the legislation would
have sent more of the money to cities
and counties, while the Senate ver-
sion would have kept more for the
state.
The House offered to compromise
by hiking the state's share from 20
percent to 30 percent. Not bad. The
latest figures were that it could have
brought in another $220 million.
However, according to Reagan, the
Senate held fast, looking for a per-
centage that could have yielded $400
million.
Without resolution, the measure


died.
It was a fitting end to a measure
that was sparked by good intentions,
but fueled by greed. We don't doubt
the conviction and passion of those,
like Reagan, who have long fought for
this legislation. We just didn't think
cameras would solve the problem.
The one certain result would have
been the institution of a self-perpetu-
ating revenue machine that would
never have been dismantled, even if it
proved to be ineffective.
Studies tend to show that danger-
ous T-bone crashes drop somewhat,
while rear-end collisions rise even
more. That's because people in places
with cameras tend to slam on their
brakes when they see yellow, even
though stopping short may be more
dangerous than clearing the intersec-
tion.
A 2005 Washington Post study of


red-light cameras in the District over
a six-year period showed the program
was a wash: fewer side impacts, but
more rear-end collisions.
One clear result was the $32 mil-
lion in revenues.
Money also may have played a part
in tightening Florida's seat-belt laws,
but this measure made perfect sense
and the greed was less evident. Seat-
belt use will be mandatory as of June
1, and police will be able to ticket any-
one they see violating the law. Now,
they must first have another reason to
pull someone over.
With this in place, the state will be
eligible to receive $35.5 million in fed-
eral funding, a fact that likely brought
some legislators on board.
There is no doubt that everyone
should buckle up, though, like it or
not. The old law was half-baked. The
new one gets it right.


Viva Venice!


MARY KAY RUPPEL
COLUMNIST


Guess what? You do
not have to leave Venice
to have a blast.
Thanks to Bruno of
Venice, Venice Avenue
came alive last Friday at
the new Dream Cafe (the
former James' Place).
Bruno sent me an e-mail
invitation to participate
and asked that we dress
in "European" fashion. I
took that to mean not in
the standard apparel for
us Venice women, who
usually want to be casual,
cool and comfortable.
Quite frankly, I was
more than ready for
some diversion from my
preoccupation with poli-
tics. For example, locally,
it concerns me that all
these lawsuits being in-
curred by our new city
council will end up com-
ing out of our pockets;
and nationally, that we
will be paying for the
bailouts.
I wonder why a tactic
called waterboarding is
considered unfair torture
if it saves one American
life but, surely, I digress.
If you haven't been
paying attention, Bruno
is the singing disc jockey
who has anointed Venice
"the greatest little city in
Florida," and he has been
proving it on a regular
basis. Last Friday he
moved the action from
the Venice Beach Pavilion
to this new swinging spot
on Venice Avenue. The
food was exceptionally
good, the service won-
derful, but the music
blew it away.
When I first arrived
around 8 p.m. clad in my
sexiest-looking garb,
people were sitting rather
sedately on the outdoor
patio enjoying their deli-
cious food and bever-


MISSION STATEMENT


ages. Bruno started the
music around 9 p.m. and
a few of us moved inside.
Bruno kindly invited
me to sing a song, and
then he switched to some
very hot music. A few of
us regulars from the
pavilion got up and start-
ed moving to the beat. I
watched the sedate pa-
trons sitting on the patio
watching us through the
window. When Bruno
pumped out the next
tune, people started mov-
ing inside to dance along.
Venice Avenue is where
it's at.
Even before I moved
to Venice, I felt it was sad
that Venice Avenue clos-
ed up so early each night.
I knew we have a lot of
action going on inVenice,
especially for the seniors.
The Senior Friendship
Centers provide a lot of
fun. However, I think it's
good for one and all to
blend the ages and swing
out together.
I could tell by the
dancing, laughing and
pure enjoyment that Bru-
no had pulled off a coup
de grace on Venice Ave-
nue. If that sort of action
continues, I can imagine
that a few of the shops
will decide it would be a
good idea to stay open a
little longer, especially on
weekends.
When my son and
daughter-in-law, and my
granddaughter visit, they
feel things are a little too
sedate here. They would-
n't have felt that way last
Friday.
Well, I sang a couple
more slow songs to give
the folks a chance for a
little slow and up-close
dancing. Later than I'm
usually up and about, I
left the Dream Cafe, car-
rying my highest high
heels in my hand, and
dragging my previously
shaking booty quite a bit
- recall that I am a se-
nior citizen but did I
have fun.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Help letter carriers make special delivery


Editor:
The Venice and North Port carriers will be partici-
pating in a nationwide food drive on Saturday, May 9.
Last year 73.1 million pounds of food was collected
nationwide while our area collected more than
127,000 pounds of food. Over the past 16 years 909
million pounds of food have been collected.
Although this is the nation's largest one-day food
drive, it only stocks the pantries for a short period of
time. In our area, the Salvation Army feeds more than
150 families a week. There are 12 million children and
3.4 million seniors living in a food-insecure house-
hold.
Campbell's has donated 107 million postcards
while locally Publix has donated 10.6 million food-
drive bags.
All of the postal employees work hard on this day,
but hope to work harder. This food drive is only a suc-
cess with help from the community.
Our community is a bright, shining star, so thank
you to everyone who helps us.


Rebuilding
is not growth
Editor:
Recently, Venice Tax-
payer League President
Herb Levine wrote a let-
ter to a local publication
under the misleading
heading, "Pro-growth
doesn't want flexibility."
Not surprisingly, Mr. Le-
vine is once again abso-
lutely and categorically
wrong.
He either doesn't un-
derstand the situation
that could face condo-
minium owners located
near the beaches in Ven-
ice should their proper-
ties have to be rebuilt
because of age or de-
struction by some cata-
strophic event, or he is
deliberately misleading
the public for his own
political ends.
Under new FEMA
rules, we need flexibility
in our new comprehen-


Megan Owen
Venice

sive plan to accomplish
such rebuilding to cur-
rent standards so that no
one would be dispos-
sessed. To this end, 18
waterfront condomini-
um associations (about
950 Venice households,
taxpayers and residents)
have united to pursue
their property rights. But
remember, this is an
issue that could be faced
by many other Venice
residents.
The issue of flexibility
to rebuild is not compli-
cated. We have simply
asked that the new com-
prehensive plan contain
clear and unambiguous
language that will allow
property owners to re-
build their homes on the
property they already
own. It is not a desire to
generate profit for the
property owners, as Mr.
Levine has inferred. Such
an egregious suggestion


is not only obviously
wrong on its face, but it is
also offensive to all clear-
thinking residents.
City staff, under coun-
cil's direction, has
worked to achieve lan-
guage equitable to both
parties. We are apprecia-
tive of their considera-
tion and are confident
our position will be sus-
tained.

Businesses rose
to the occasion
Editor:
We are so very grateful
to the businesses of the
Venice area. More than
100 of them donated
prizes to be given away at
the community event
entitled Venice Rising '09
held on Easter Sunday at
the Venice Community
Center.
Together these gener-
ous entrepreneurs gave
gifts and prizes valued at
$10,000. In this depress-
ed economy the people
of this great town have
gone above and beyond
to lift the spirits of this
community.
In my dreams, 40 to 50
would step up, but not
more than 100. It was
beyond our wildest ex-
pectations.
The cost of a haircut:
$20. The cost of an oil
change or gasoline
voucher: $25. However,
the look on the faces of
the folks who won some
much-needed assistance
and encouragement, that
was priceless.
Our church, Venice
Assembly, was honored


to have the privilege of
hosting the event. I was
truly honored to have the
opportunity to partner
with these businesses
listed in serving the fami-
lies ofVenice.

Marriott's not
out of the picture
Editor:
Everyone loves Vicki
Taylor.
That is what I am told
in every issue of your
paper since the Sunshine
mess surfaced. Ms. Tay-
lor says she opposes the
city having to pay council
members' legal fees. That
is admirable, but her boy-
cott of a special meeting
on the matter cost tax-
payers even more.
She was not there, but
a lot of lawyers were, and
their clocks were ticking.
Not surprisingly, the
Marriott representative
was present as he has
been since the political
blood began flowing over
the frivolous Sunshine
suit.
Vicki Taylor smells the
blood too. Getting rid of
council members who
ran on a platform that
included preservation or
affordable golf at Lake
Venice Golf Club seems
to be the goal. This would
pave the way for Marriott
to take over the VGA
lease.
Wake up, people. Mar-

lease. It will then turn our

FRAN VALENCIC
COLUMNIST


"It's not just for the
good times," my daugh-
ter, Shari, said to me as
she put on my hospital
gown on me.
We were in pre-op at
Moffitt Cancer Center.
Shari was helping me get
ready for the skin graft I
needed that would help
my incision heal after my
cancer surgery to ampu-
tate my left arm and
shoulder.
I had to ask Shari if her
standing at my side for all
the biopsies and surg-
eries for the past 10 years
was not beyond the call
of duty. This time when
she was standing by my
side she was seeing my
disfigured body, and I
wanted to shield her
from that pain.
It was then she touch-
ed my heart so deeply
with her "good times"
statement. In our 40
years together, while we
shed any number of tears
and engaged in mother-
daughter battles, the
good times far outnum-
bered everything else.
Since that afternoon at
Moffitt, I've thought a lot
about Shari's and my life


together. I've especially
thought about the past
10 years and I've thought
about the meaning of
this Mother's Day.
Sitting back and re-
flecting on this time, I've
come to appreciate the
joy of having this won-
derful woman as a
daughter. The last few
weeks taught me that
Shari is part of my cancer
treatment.
Each time she says,
"Mom, I'm proud of
you," or "Mom, I admire
your courage," she con-
firms my life is terrific
and worth every treat-
ment.
When, six weeks after
surgery, Shari said to me,
"Mom, you are still mak-
ing the 15 pounds of Pol-
ish sausage and sauer-
kraut for Mariska's First
Communion, aren't you?"
my first thought was,
"What does she think I

"What does she
think I am, Super-
woman?'
Venice Gondo-
lierSun columnist
Fran Valencic


am, Superwoman?" Then
I realized she does.
I've always told her,
"Shari, we are Polish
women. We come from
good stock. We have our
babies in the fields and
go back to work."
Shari's confidence in
my ability to bounce
back gives me confi-


dence.
Shari knows the most
important part of my
cancer treatment is her
daughters, Tali and Mar-
iska. These two girls
know about cancer and
know it is an up-and-
down adventure.
I told 11-year-old Tali I
was freaking out about
losing my hair to chemo.
She told me to pretend I
was Hannah Montana
and get wigs.
When I explained to
Mariska what amputa-
tion was, she thought for
a moment and then said,
"Flusia, the good thing is
that cancer will be out of
you." Then she said, "You
might have trouble going
potty. I can cut up toilet
paper in small pieces for
you."
She put her left arm
through her left sleeve
and walked around that
way to experience what it
would be like for me.
Now she often helps me
with tasks so instead of
two hands like I had
before, in my "new nor-
mal" I have three hands.
There is a lot of re-
search about cancer
treatment. I have learned
love is the greatest tonic
of all.
As we celebrate Moth-
er's Day, I wish that all
moms receive the gift
Shari gave me in that pre-
op room at Moffitt Can-
cer Center when she said,
"It's not just for the good
times."
Happy Mother's Day.

You've got the power; use it


Power up. Monday morning, 9:20 a.m., I got
caught by the North Bridge as a sailboat under sail
power at 1 mph blocked the whole downtown and
north side area. Unbelievable. There should be a law
against sail power through the bridges. Ten minutes
later, I was on the island and looked back. The bridge
was up again. Ridiculous timing.


Grand job. I'm calling
because I disagree with
Rita Kutie, guest colum-
nist in the Gondolier Sun.
I think Bob Vedder is
telling the truth, and
there's so many people
that agree with this. I
think Mrs. Kutie was
completely out of line.
I'm sure she's a mem-
ber of this membership
association because they
all write the same thing. I
hope this will be pub-
lished because I agree
with Bob Vedder.
I think he's doing a
grand job and I hope he
continues.
I don't know what
we're going to do with
these council members
who want to destroy our
little airport. I favor what
Mr. Vedder is doing. Keep
it up.
Paperwork. I was in-
trigued by Chief Williams
saying that she gave up

the extra funds that we
could have possibly got-
ten because we don't
have much crime. Well,
this morning, there was a
constant fixture in the
Venice Masonic Lodge
parking lot some of
her officers sitting there.
Now what could they be
doing? Is it their break
time?
Doubt it. They proba-
bly just got on or just got
off shift. Could they be
doing paperwork?
I didn't know that it
took more than one
police officer to do their
paperwork. Maybe they
could be at Caspersen
where they're actually
having problems.
Blow 'em up. I used to
enjoy Around Town with
all the pictures, but the
pictures have been get-
ting smaller and smaller
with more print.
Now, I just glance at it


world-class resort. Next, it will want to
upgrade our airport so its guests can jet
into Venice in overwhelming numbers.
Think about this: Was Marriott
the real plaintiff in the Sunshine
lawsuit?
I have no political agenda whatsoev-
er. I support and defend the council
members who want Lake Venice Golf


and pass it by.
If you're getting that
many pictures, how
about two pages of pic-
tures so they can be a lit-
tle bit larger and you can
even see their faces?
Triple play. I have
three things. The Venice
police are giving out tick-
ets for parking that are
unnecessary.
I'm trying to find out
why this is. Is there a new
police officer doing this
or what?
I received a parking
ticket and there was no
"No parking" sign there.
Also, when I bought
my house near the air-
port, there were not big
jets flying in. Small
planes are fine; the big
jets that come in are not
fine.
We do not even know
who flies in and out of
this airport. That is a con-
cern.
Also, the littering. The
kids of the snowbirds that
are not being taught that
littering is bad and leav-
ing trash at the beach can
just head out north on I-
75 and not stop. The lit-
tering needs to stop.


Club to remain as is: affordable, suc-
cessful and environmentally sound.
Lake Venice Golf Club is a huge
tourist attraction and a source of plea-
sure to our citizens. Let us not lose it to
Marriott or anyone else.

children," Williams said.
McNulty takes that
advice a step further.
"Have a code word,
but don't even have the
child stay around long
enough to use it," he said.
"Have them get out of
there or wrap themselves
(arms and legs) around
their bicycle or anything
stationery. Predators
can't get the kid and the
bike into the car."
County monitoring
Like the Venice Police
Department, the Saraso-
ta County Sheriff's Office
monitors offenders more
frequently than the state
requires only twice a
year.
Deputies verify where
the offenders are sup-
posed to be living. If they
have moved and didn't
notify the officials, dep-
uties find and arrest
them.
"We do the checks
every few months, and
we go the extra mile by
keeping track of their
cars and tags," said SCSO
Sgt. Mark Brewer. "In
addition to the informa-
tion we send to FDLE, we
keep our own files and
information in case there
are any problems."
Brewer said the sher-
iff's office is currently re-
sponsible for the where-
abouts of 52 offenders.
There are many more
offenders in the area that
the Florida Department
of Corrections is respon-
sible for.
"When offenders and
predators have served
their prison sentence,
they are then put on pro-
bation usually for sev-
eral years," Brewer said.
"While they are on pro-
bation, the department
of corrections officers
monitor them. They usu-
ally see them once a
month."
Brewer said that once
the offenders and preda-
tors are off probation it is
up to local law enforce-
ment to monitor them.
"Between us and local
police departments and
FDLE, we make sure we
know where they are liv-
ing," he said. "When
predators move into an
area we notify residents
within a two-block area
and licensed day-cares
for up to a mile and a
half."
Brewer said that while
there are many more
offenders than there are
predators, citizens should-
n't automatically assume
that the offenders aren't
as dangerous as preda-
tors.
"A predator receives
that designation either
because the crime is so
heinous it immediately
qualifies them or the
judge gives them the des-
ignation based on the
outcome of the trial," he
said. "Remember, the of-
fender could have taken
a plea on a lesser charge
to avoid the worse
charge. So don't think
because they are offend-
ers they are automatical-
ly less dangerous."
A visitor to the FDLE
site will see that some
offenders have left their
registered address while
others are listed as out of
state.
'As soon as we see that
an offender has abscond-
ed, we issue an arrest
warrant," Brewer said.
"We found three had
absconded during our
last check and we arrest-
ed all three within a week
in a half."
Brewer said that those


who are listed as living
out of state usually come
to Sarasota County for
the winter.

tored through the On-the-Job Training
Program at Venice High School. This
program allows students to earn course
credit while earning money and acquir-
ing work-based experience in partner-
ship with local businesses.
A native Floridian, Adam was born
in Tampa and raised in Port Charlotte
until his family moved to Venice, when
he began high school. Habitat Ex-
ecutive Director Judy Wilcox first met
him several years ago when he was lay-
ing sod with his family at a Home
Builders of Sarasota County Blitz Build
in North Port.
Adam's greatest passion is comput-
ers, and he was actually applying for a
job at a computer store when he heard
about the volunteer opportunity at the
ReStore. His initial contribution includ-
ed computer maintenance and repair,
but he quickly moved from checking
out donated computers to bookkeep-
ing, merchandising and manning the
cash register.
Within six months he had created
the ReStore's Web site. About a year ago
he helped ReStore Director Brian
Dickerson create the Purchased Goods
Program. On his own time, Adam wrote


Vicki Noren Taylor. "Ei-
ther have it or let's go.
Just make a decision. I

other half hour to discuss

both the Purchased Goods mark-up
plan and its inventory-tracking pro-
gram.
Not only has the Purchased Goods
program been a financial success for
the ReStore, it has also provided Adam
with the opportunity to become profi-
cient in a multitude of business skills.
Even though he does not intend to
change his major from computer sci-
ence to business, Adam realizes the
value of the skills he has learned if and
when he ever decides to open a busi-
ness of his own.
Adam's focus these days is on the
Purchased Goods Program and book-
keeping. When Adam leaves at the end
of the summer for the University of
Central Florida, Brian says filling his
shoes will be a challenge his com-
puter and people skills, coupled with
his intelligence and sense of humor,
have made him almost indispensable.
But Brian intends to continue part-
nering with the VHS OJT program, with
the hope of finding another gem like
Adam.
Even though Habitat is primarily in
the business of building homes, this
young man is an impressive example of
how it builds competency, confidence,
and skills in people as well.

Job program needs youth, business participation


BY ANNE
KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER

The Suncoast Work-
force Board Inc. is pre-
paring for a five-week
work readiness training
class for teens and young
adults.
The program, for
youth ages 16-21 living in
Sarasota and Manatee
counties, is designed to
provide a meaningful
work and training experi-
ence during the summer
months. Features of the
program include individ-
ualized career assess-
ments, career explo-
ration, goal setting and
career planning, as well
as comprehensive work
readiness skills training.

"It's great for our
youth ..."
Sally Hill,
Suncoast Work-
force Board
public relations
manager


"The first week the
participants will learn
how to write an effective
resume, practice inter-
viewing techniques,
learning what the appro-
priate attire is for an
interview, how to con-
duct a job search and the
importance of working in
a team environment,
respect for colleagues -
all the employability
skills that are so impor-
tant in the workplace,"
said Sally Hill, public
relations manager for the
SuncoastWorkforce Board.
The program is geared
toward young adults from
low-income families.
"But regardless of where
they think they fall in that,
we encourage them to go
ahead and fill out an
application," Hill said.
She said that the next
four weeks of the pro-
gram, 20 hours per week,
would be spent at the
employers' worksites. At
the moment, the pro-
gram is seeking both
nonprofit organizations
and for-profit businesses
that would be willing to
partner with the pro-
gram, so applicants can
have a short-term, mean-
ingful work experience as
interns.
"We're looking to pro-
vide variety and be near
where the youth live. We
are ramping up this
effort," Hill said.
The goal, she contin-
ued, is to have 40 work-
sites, which essentially
means 400 jobs. Em-
ployers can have more
than one youth working
at their site.
"What's really exciting
about this is that it's been
a good 10 years since
we've had a summer
youth program," she said,
"and due to the American
Recovery and Reinvest-
ment Act, we received
funding to be able to offer
this program again."
She said employers
also receive a benefit, in
that they get summer
help and can perhaps
tackle projects that have
been delayed, or try
something new they've
been meaning to imple-
ment.
"(Employer) partici-
pants are paid a training
incentive, and the pro-
gram also covers the req-
uisite liability coverage,
so there's no cost to the
employer," Hill said.


Southern exposure


Hill said they are espe-
cially eager to have both
youth and businesses in
South County sign up for
the Summer Youth Pro-
gram.
"This is such a great
opportunity, and we're so


excited about it," Hill
said. "It's great for our
youth, who are our
emerging workforce. But
employers can get some
summer help, and also
contribute to developing
an area workforce."

CLASS 4A FHSAA TRACK AND FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS




Venice athletes set for states


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


The timing isn't the best but
there is no escaping it.
Before the biggest track and
field meet of the season looms
the high school prom.
This is what the majority
of the Venice High athletes
are faced with as they pre-
pare for the Class 4A FHSAA
State Track and Field Cham-
pionships on Saturday at
Showalter Field in Winter
Park.
Good thing the meet does-
n't start until 1 p.m. as eight of
Venice's 12 state qualifiers
attended their high school
prom at the Ritz-Carlton in
Sarasota on Friday night.
"It's definitely a factor and
really concerns me and we've
talked about it with our kids,"
Venice boys coach Larry
Shannon said about the prom.
"Being smart about how
much rest they get and being
focused for the opportunity of
their high school careers to go
run in the state track meet."
Shannon said seven of his
nine boys will be attending
prom.
"The good news for the
majority of the kids nothing
starts until 1 o'clock and good
news for Dri and the sprinters,
the prelims aren't until 4 p.m.
We don't have to get up at the
crack of dawn. We can let
them sleep in."
"It's very difficult," Venice
girls coach Brenda Clark said.
"This is a major moment
especially for the girls. You
want to go have fun, relax and
want to dance which is what I
talked to them about today
(Thursday). The more you
dance the more sore you are
going to be the next day.
Please have a good time but
dance in moderation. Don't
stay out late and go home and

Venice's Dri Archer, shown here running the final leg of the 4x100
meter relay in the Class 4A-District 7 meet, is one of 12 Venice High
athletes who qualified for Saturday's Class 4A FHSAA Track and Field
Finals at Showalter Field in Winter Park.

WHEN: 1 p.m. Saturday

Robert Fordham (4x100 relay); Trey Burton (4x100 relay);
Ben Steele (shot put); Jake Scully (4x800 relay); Brian White

get your rest."
The top eight finishers in
each event receive medals.
After tweaking his ham-
string in the 100-meter final at
regionals last week, Venice
senior Dri Archer is ready to
run.
"His hamstring has been
great all week," Shannon said.
"The first 48 hours we got a lot
of treatment. We pushed it a
little in practice to test it and


he seemed fine. As the week
went on, it got better and bet-
ter so I think he will be ready
to go."
Archer has the best chance
to pick up Venice's first state
medal since Kyle Brunette
place fifth in the 3,200-meter
run in the 2006 state champi-
onships.
The speedy Archer, who
signed to play football at Kent
State University, has the third


fastest time this season in
Class 4A 100-meter dash with
a school-record time of 10.49
seconds.
"He's excited about the
state meet," Shannon said.
"We are going to make sure his
legs are fresh and see if we
can't go over there and make
some history."
Only Chamberlain's Den-
tarius Locke and Deerfield
Beach's Denard Robinson
have run faster in the classifi-
cation this year in 10.31 and
10.44 seconds.
Venice's 4x100 relay team of
Trey Burton, Max Brandow,
Robert Fordham and Archer
will likely have to run below 42
seconds to earn a medal.
The foursome's best time
this year is 42.31 seconds, set
in the Class 4A-Region 2 meet
last week.
"We worked really hard on
our handoffs all week,"
Shannon said. "We feel we can
go there and place. Kids are
really motivated to go over
there and get a medal."
Senior Ben Steele would
likely need a throw over 50 feet
in the shot put to place in the
top eight as the top eight
throwers in Class 4A have
eclipsed this mark.
Steele's best throw of the
season is 49 feet, 5 inches in
the Sarasota County Track and
Field Championships.
This is Steele's second
straight trip to states as the
senior qualified last year while
attending North Port High.
Venice's other boys com-
peting include the 4x800 relay
team of Jake Scully, Brian
White, David Enander and
Dillon Boyd.
In the girls, junior Heather
Williams, who is also a cheer-
leader, has a chance to medal

Williams, 17, is trying to
become the first female athlete
at Venice to pick up a state
medal since Sam Seeley took
eighth in the shot put in 2006.
"Kind of nervous," Williams
said about her first time at
states. "I haven't seen it before.
It's going to be different. I want
to get 10 feet. I want top eight. I
want to be on the podium. I've
always wanted to go to states
my junior year and then place
top four my senior year. That's
been my goal since I made it
regionals my freshman year."
"If she clears 10 (feet) it
could bump her up. She's seen
the two best vaulters in the
state as they are at regional,"
Clark said. "She looks really
good. One thing I like about
Heather is her focus. She does-
n't let other things around her
rattle her too easily."
Other Lady Indians compet-
ing at states include junior
Breanna Hafeli in the discus

Tresch said she is nervous

125 county teachers looking for work


BY ANNE
KLOCKENKEMPER
STAFF WRITER


According to Scott Fer-
guson, communications spe-
cialist with the Sarasota
County School Board, 125
teachers in the district have
not been assigned to positions
for the 2009-10 school year.
"We hope that will change
over the summer, but some of
them could become layoffs
just before school starts in
August, if those people don't
have positions," he said.
Counting classified staff -
aides, custodians, secretaries,
bus drivers and other support
staff school district officials
said last month that about 320
positions some already
vacant would be eliminat-
ed. The school board has
worked for months to trim
more than $40 million from its
budget.
"The highest number is at


Woodland Middle (School),
with 16," Ferguson said.
'Again, (the teachers) are cur-
rently working."
That's little consolation to
Kim Emery, one of those told
Thursday she wouldn't have a
place at Woodland next year.
As chair of the school's read-
ing department and yearbook
editor, the 2009-10 school year
would have been her 10th as a
reading teacher. Emery was
home sick Thursday when
Woodland principal Kris
Lawrence called her to give her
the news.
"She said, 'I didn't want this
to happen and have you hear
from someone else,' Emery
said. "She said 'Kim, this is the
hardest call I have to make.
Honey, you don't have a job in
the district (next year) as of
today' There's no position for
me anywhere in the district, is
what I was told."
Lawrence, who spent all day
Thursday meeting with staff,


couldn't be reached for com-
ment.
Emery was in the middle of
developing a reading enrich-
ment program and had started
the certification to become the
school's cheerleading coach.
Track and basketball coaches
and other teachers in the
school's English department
were among those told they
wouldn't have a place.
It's the kids
Despite the natural con-
cerns about paying bills and
no longer having health insur-
ance although her salary
and benefits will be paid
through August Emery is
most worried about how the
cuts will affect students.
"We just got 94 percent on
the FCAT. Our kids who got Is
and 2s last year got 5s this year
... It's these kids I'm worrying
about, and it's my principal I
feel sorry for," she said. "All of
that planning and stability that


was there is gone. All of these
afterschool activities and clubs
- the kids aren't going to get
it."
Ferguson said there is a sep-
arate process for classified
positions, and some teachers
might be moved into those
vacant aid positions at the end
of the classified staffing
process, which will take place
May 18-19.
"Teachers may be overqual-
ified for those positions that
remain, but they could be
placed in those positions,"
Ferguson said. "They may also
be given priority for long-term
substitute assignments."
Teachers who are laid off
have two years to exercise their
right to recall, Ferguson said,
which means the district won't
hire anyone new for a position
as long as there are laid-off
teachers who still qualify.
The number of vacant posi-
tions might also increase over
the summer as some employ-


ees choose to retire or leave the
district for other reasons, Fer-
guson said.
Emery said that not enough
people will leave or retire from
the district to give all those
eliminated other jobs.
She will try to find a job
teaching next year at a private
school or preschool, she said.
"I just love teaching, and 10
years is a long time to be in a
school setting," she said.
"Reaching that milestone of 10
years is probably more impor-
tant than anything I've done in
my life than have my daughter.
"I'm not a superintendent
and I'm not a budget master,
but there have got to be other
options," she said. "But I just
have to suck it up, and if (my
students) ask me if I'm coming
back next year, I'll probably tell
them, and I'll probably cry. But
there's three weeks left of
school. They're stuck with me."

Manatee Community College foundation board member resigns


BY GRACE GAGLIANO
BRADENTON HERALD


A member of the Foundation for
Manatee Community College has
resigned, alluding to a difference of
opinion over the way the college's name
change was handled.
Andy Gregory, a member of the col-
lege's fundraising board, submitted a
resignation letter May
1 notifying fellow
board members of his
departure. He refers in
the letter to a differ-
ence of opinions, stat-
ing, "To have an op-
posing opinion has
generated a valuable
lesson."
He declined to com- Hafner
ment further.
The resignation comes nearly three
weeks after MCC's board of trustees
approved its new name: State College
of Florida Manatee-Sarasota.
Minutes from the foundation's
March 25 meeting show Gregory in-
quired about whether MCC would
change its name. According to the min-
utes, President Lars Hafner made the
board aware the name would change,
saying "it would be a decision made by
the district board of trustees." He did
not mention that, earlier the same day,
he had been instructed by the board of
trustees to research a new name and a
logo redesign.
Foundation members were notified
of the name selected for MCC after
trustees' approval April 15.
"They knew it was a board of
trustees decision," Hafner said. "They
knew it would probably move quicker


rather than not be-
cause of the process."
MCC Foundation
member Charlie Hack-
ney said Tuesday he
would have preferred
Hafner had given citi-
zens who had a vested
interest in the college
an opportunity for in-
put.
"The first that I


Harner


found out about it was the executive
director of the foundation sent us an e-
mail after the (April 15) meeting when
they made the decision that the name
would change," Hackney said. "Quite
honestly, I'm a little disappointed
something as significant as changing a
college's name didn't have more input.
It should have had more input from
everybody the community, alumni
and so forth."
But foundation member Henry Ab-
bott on Tuesday said he didn't believe
input on the renaming was necessary
from the foundation because it is not a
decision-making board.
"That wouldn't be part of my
purview with the foundation because
the duties are different. The foundation
is more of the fundraising arm," Abbott
said. "It appears that the process was
followed according to the rules."
Steve Harer, chair of the board of
trustees, has previously said the board
of trustees "were acting in good faith" to
quickly get the name change approved
by the Legislature before the session
ended.
Trustees wanted the name codified
by the Legislature this session so the
college could begin the four-year nurs-
ing program in 2010. A delay might


have set back the launching of the
nursing program to fall 2010, as MCC
would have had to wait for 2010 legisla-
tive session for the name's approval,
Hafner said.
The process for renaming MCC dif-
fers significantly from a similar renam-
ing Hafner went through as an associ-
ate vice president of St. Petersburg
Junior College in 2001, when it changed
to St. Petersburg College.
According to a St. Petersburg Times
report published May 17, 2001, Hafner
participated in a roundtable discussion
on how to implement a name change
for SPJC. President Carl Kuttler hosted
the meeting and invited provosts, high-
level administrators and faculty who
discussed how to drop junior from the
name, the school's mission and logo,
potential slogans and a marketing cam-
paign.
Hafner said that was the route St.
Pete College chose, and the MCC board
of trustees opted not to because they


"We began conceptualizing
in February..."


- MCC President
Lars Hafner


wanted to ensure the state board of
education granted approval of the four-
year nursing program sooner rather
than later.
Hafner submitted a letter of intent to
the Florida commissioner of education
in September that MCC was interested
in offering four-year degrees. In Feb-
ruary, the public affairs department
received a $3,000 invoice for logo
designs it requested from Bryan Gor-
don Design in Sarasota.
"We began conceptualizing in Feb-
ruary what this could be," Hafner said.
"We were very cognizant and careful
with the process to make sure all our
't's' were crossed and 'i's' dotted."

Artists can submit works to solo art exhibition


FROM THE SARASOTA
ORCHESTRA


The Sarasota Orchestra in-
vites artists to submit applica-
tions to exhibit their work dur-
ing its 2009-2010 season,
which is themed Seeing Music,
in the orchestra's Harmony
Gallery, located in the atrium
of the Beatrice Friedman Sym-
phony Center.
The application deadline is
June 12. Juried decisions will
be announced by July 17.


Six exhibits, strategically
themed to support the orches-
tra's Great Escapes concerts,
will be presented in the 2009-
2010 season. The Great Es-
capes concerts are themed:
Musical Postcards; All That
Glitters; I'll Be SeeingYou; The
Green, Green Grass of Home;
Mona Lisa; and Beyond the
Blue Horizon. Artwork loosely
supporting these themes is
ideal, but not required.
"Musicians and visual
artists have inspired one an-


other throughout the centuries
and continue do so today,"
said LeifBjaland, artistic direc-
tor.
"The impressions that one
takes in when viewing a paint-
ing are very similar to the sen-
sory response one gets when
listening to a great oratorio or
piano concerto."
Interested artists should
submit a biography, artist
statement, at least 10 digital
samples of their most recent
work or a link to an online


portfolio site and a completed
application, available online at
SarasotaOrchestra.org or by
calling 953-4252.
Submit applications to
Sherrie McKinley at smckin
ley@SarasotaOrchestra.org or
Harmony Gallery at the
Beatrice Friedman Symphony
Center, 709 North Tamiami
Trail, Sarasota, FL 34236.
The orchestra will host an
artist reception for each exhi-
bition in the atrium of the
Symphony Center.


A portion of the proceeds
from the sale of Harmony
Gallery artwork will be donat-
ed to the orchestra.
The gallery is free and open
to the public during normal
business hours, 8:30 a.m. to
4:30 p.m., Monday through
Friday, and during concerts
that take place at Holley Hall in
the Beatrice Friedman Sym-
phony Center.

POEMS from Page 1B


By Kayla Walker

Mom I love you
Without you I feel blue
And you're a great memory
When you come through the
house door
I give out great happiness
galore
You tuck me in at night
I can't wait until Mother's Day
When it comes I'll say hooray!


By Samantha Kelly

Roses are red, violets are blue
I made this poem especially
for you
Sugar is sweet you are too.
You are helpful and caring
when I feel sad.
You are patient and kind when
I am mad.
Roses are red, violets are blue
Because of the mother you
are,
I really appreciate you.

By Kaytlyn Korte

Mom, you have always been


there,
Through thick and thin you
always care
You go out of you way every
time
Just to read my little rhyme.
You are special to me,
And I hope this poem helps
you see
That I care just as much as
you
Although you are usually at
work,
You are still the best mother
you can be
Whether you're with me or not
You care about everything and
everyone
And that kind of love can't be
bought.


By ulia Lesko


And for that I think you're
number 1!
I love you,
And I'm sure you do too.
Love you!


By Bailee McNamee

On this day I give to you
A bouquet of flowers which
are blue,
A huge box of chocolates, and
a hug just for you!
In the morning you will wake
up to a feast
And all I know it's the least
I could do for you!
I love you


By Taylor Paull


Dear Mom,
Thank you for being my
mother,
Because I would want no
other.
You are so nice,
And cool as ice.
Thanks for all you have done


Today's a day just for you
Flowers and roses too
You pack our lunches
Hugs and kisses by the bunch-
es
Mom you're always there
When we get a bad scare
I love you Mom!!!


By Ethan Reeves

My Mom is awesome
And has an all helping pur-
pose
My mom is great
And deserves a celebration
Happy Mother's Day, Mom


By Hannah Richards

Everyday you do what's best
for us
Making sure we didn't miss
our bus.
You always know what's right,
Especially when we get a mos-
quito bite,
You are truly the best,
Without a test.
You know how to make me
smile,
Even when I have been sad for
a while,
I love coming home to see you
And you say "I missed you
too."
I love getting your hugs,
When we watch "American
Idol" and drink out of our
mugs.


I hope you have a wonderful
Mother's Day,
Because you have always been
there with no dismay!
I love you more than my own
life,
Since I have you in my life I
have no strife


By Nora Simpson

Every year every day,
You clean the house with no
dismay
You know what's best
Without one test,
Without one test.
When I am sad,
You make me glad
When I am mad at Dylan,
You make me feel like chillin'
You always calm me down,
When we're out of town,
When we're in a fight.

Amid Egypt's deserts, a green lotus bud blooms


BY JOHN BORDSEN
MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS

What's it like to live in a far-
off place most of us see only
on a vacation? Foreign
Correspondence is an inter-
view with someone who lives
in a spot you may want to
visit.
Neil Hewison, 52, is a
native of Yorkshire, England,
who has lived in Egypt since
1979. The Cairo resident is
associate director of the
American University in Cairo
Press, which recently pub-
lished a revised edition of his
"The Fayoum: History and
Guide" ($19.95).
Q. The cover of your book is a
startling landscape like a palm-
filled golf course in the foreground
and stark desert in the background.
Is this typical of the area called the
Fayoum?
A. When you look at a map
of Egypt, the Nile is like the
stem of a lotus, and the
Fayoum looks like a lotus bud
that comes out from its side.
You drive about an hour in the
desert southwest of Cairo to
the edge of the Fayoum
depression. Water goes into it
from a river that's off the Nile,
and this creates the fertile area
in what basically is the middle
of the desert. Fayoum is one
of six main oases in the
Western Desert of Egypt.
What you see on the cover
is very typical. In the fore-
ground is alfalfa, which they


grow and feed to animals in
winter. Just beyond that it
looks like onions. Then the
lake shore the big salt lake.
And on its far side, the north
side is desert. There's no irri-
gation on the north shore, so
they can't grow anything.
Q. Your first edition came out in
1984; has it changed much?
A. I lived in the city there,
which is also called Fayoum,
when I came to Egypt with
Voluntary Service Overseas -
the British equivalent of the
Peace Corps. For three years I
taught English at a small col-
lege.
Egypt has a rapidly growing
population it has just about
doubled in my 30 years here.
The population in Fayoum
itself probably doubled, too.
It's now more crowded and
spread out.
People have left behind
some of their traditional ways.
When I lived there, village
houses were mostly mud
brick, adobe style. Now they're
built of red brick, block and
concrete. The old mud-brick
building was much better for
this climate a good insula-
tor that keeps homes cool in
summer and warm in winter.
But brick is considered more
modern.
There are taxis now. Before,
the only way to get around
was by foot or horse-drawn
taxis. Those are being phased
out now.
The countryside itself has-


n't changed much. It's still
agricultural. There's a little
more farm machinery.
Q. The town of Fayoum was
called Crocodiloplis in ancient times
and was where crocodiles were wor-
shipped. You write that they're all
gone, but there are still reptile-eating
Egyptian mongoose. Did the crocs
get eaten?
A. I wouldn't blame the
mongoose, to be honest. The
extinction has more to do with
competition with human
needs over the millennia.
Once they were no longer
sacred when the old reli-
gion died out there was no
need to conserve and breed
them. They just died out
because of habitat loss as well
as hunting farmers going
out to kill them to keep the
crocodiles from killing live-
stock.
You still see mongoose
around the farmland. Snakes,
though, are rare. I've only seen
snakes once or twice since I've
been there.
Q. The Fayoum was part of
ancient Egyptian culture.Why isn't it
prime pyramid country? Was it off
the beaten track back then?
A. The ancients went to
much more remote oases.
Fayoum wasn't that remote -
they could get there by water
from the Nile, or across the
desert by donkey caravan.
The pyramids built in the
Fayoum are from the Middle
Kingdom about 800 years
after the Great Pyramids of


Giza were built. The ones in
the Fayoum certainly don't
compete for grandeur with
the main pyramids, which are
along the Nile Valley. Most
people will go to Giza or
Saqqara. There are more than
100 pyramids in Egypt; most
visitors only see a half dozen.
Q. The pyramids at Fayoum:
Better-preserved because they're
less visited?
A. They're not well-pre-
served at all. They were built
for kings and had burial
chambers inside and so on,
but were not built the same
way as the Great Pyramids.
These have a mud brick core:
Each pyramid is a mountain
of mud brick that was encased
in a casing of limestone to
make its exterior shape.
Hundreds or thousands of
years ago, that casing was
robbed for use elsewhere.
Once that casing went, the
mud brick was subject to
occasional winter rains. The
pyramids weren't washed
away, but look more like big
lumps.
Q. Do archaeologists still work at
them?
A. Hawwara, the one
that's better known, was
explored at the end of the 19th
century by William Flinders
Petrie. He made a few impor-
tant discoveries and cleared
the site.
But just last year, a team
from a Belgian university did
soundings radio echo


things around that pyra-
mid. The area next to it was
once called the Labyrinth, and
(5th century B.C. Greek writer)
Herodotus described it as the
greatest building in Egypt -
3,000 rooms, half above
ground and half below. It all
disappeared above ground
and what you see next to the
pyramid now are piles of rub-
ble.
But these people last year
claim to have detected some
regularly shaped structures
about 8 meters (26 feet)
underground. They theorize
that Petrie didn't dig down far
enough, and that parts of the
labyrinth which was proba-
bly a temple of some kind -
are still there. They believe
there are still things to be dis-
covered.
Q. People have been picking over
Egypt for ancient artifacts since
before the days of Julius Caesar. Do
things still turn up?
A. Egyptologists make
new discoveries all the time.
Also, every day people find
things.
There is a black market in
antiquities. The government
does its best to stamp it out,
but people are still smuggling
things out. Every now and
then you hear of a case where
something is tracked down in
Europe or America where it
turned up in a museum.

Southwest Florida Museum


of History offers self-guided


bilingual audio tours


SUN PHOTO BY KIM COOL
A typical Florida Cracker house is part of the tour at the Southwest Florida Museum of
History in Fort Myers. Unlike original Cracker houses, this one is handicap accessible.


FROM SOUTHWEST
FLORIDA MUSEUM OF
HISTORY

The Southwest
Florida Museum of
History is offering a new
audio tour, in English
and Spanish, to museum
visitors.
Thanks to the Lee
County Arts and Attrac-
tions Grant administered

Community Foundation
with funding provided
by the City of Fort Myers
and the Lee County TDC
and additional support
from the Southwest
Florida Museum of
History Foundation Inc.,
the audio tours will be
available for individual
visitors at no extra cost.
The audio tour system


uses digital wands to act
as guides for visitors
throughout the muse-
um's exhibits and dis-
plays.
Each numbered
exhibit corresponds to a
digital audio file in the
wand, allowing visitors
to explore deeper in the
museum's collections.
Additionally, there are
five oral histories avail-
able at selected exhibits
from a Southwest
Florida native and muse-
um volunteer.
It is hoped that the
program will lead to
increased visitation and
enhance the museum
experience, in addition
to facilitating access to
and understanding of
the history of South-
west Florida to our


Spanish speaking popu-
lation.
The museum is locat-
ed at 2031 Jackson St.,
at the corner of Mart-
in Luther King and
Jackson, in downtown
Fort Myers next to the
Lee County Library
System.
Use Exit 138 from

the museum from Exit
138.
The museum is open
Tuesday through Sat-
urday, from 10 a.m. to 5
p.m. Admission is $9.50
for adults, $8.50 for

sales, margins and book-
ings for the fourth con-
secutive year since form-
ing in 2004. For the more
than 2,000 destinations

FINE WHINES


Warming to the idea


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


Is Earth getting warmer? I don't
know, but a lot of smart people seem to
think so. Of course, a lot of equally
smart people don't, so what's a guy to
do?
Here's the way I see it.
I'm a big guy. I do not like heat.
People who move here from up North
like to say that their blood thins out
after year or so, and they get cold if the
temperature dips below 70. I've lived in
Florida for more than 40 years and my
blood isn't any thinner than the day I
got here. So I'm in favor of a touch of
global cooling, at least during the sum-
mer, which for us is about mid-May
through November.
Unfortunately for me, plenty of evi-
dence can be assembled to show the
opposite is happening: glaciers and
polar icecaps melting, bizarre weather
patterns, etc. There seems to be a lot of
agreement that these are signs of some-
thing bad.
Of course, critics dispute this evi-
dence and call current trends cyclical.
Maybe so. The fact that Al Gore has
become the poster boy for it certainly
turns some people off (though not the
Nobel Prize people).
And they point to the Global
Warming Petition (Google will take you
right to the Web site) that more than
31,000 United States scientists have
signed and which states that there is no
"convincing scientific evidence" that
humans are causing "catastrophic
heating of the Earth's atmosphere and
disruption of the Earth's climate."


That's good news. But I'd feel better if
I knew all those 31,000 scientists were
experts in this field. No doubt some are,
but anyone who claims to have a sci-
ence degree can sign the petition
(Manatee Community College's new
Bachelor of Science degree in nursing
would qualify you) and I have no idea
what, if anything, is done to confirm
those claims.
Web sites that describe efforts to ver-
ify some signatures say some scientists
didn't recall signing or said they would-
n't sign today (the petition began in the
late '90s); some names are question-
able or duplicated; some scientists are
educated in fields math, for example
- that on their face wouldn't seem to
give them any special knowledge about
our climate.
Troublesome too are news reports
that the Global Climate Coalition, an
energy-company-funded organization,
suppressed a report in which its own
experts said the scientific basis for the
greenhouse effect "is well established
and cannot be denied."
I'm all for healthy debate on this or
any issue, but it needs to be open and
honest. Unless and until we're sure the
naysayers are right, doing nothing
about global warming strikes me as
pretty risky. And even if they are right,
aren't conserving energy, polluting less
and otherwise taking better care of the
planet smart things to do on general
principles?
In this case, I'd rather do the right
thing for the wrong reason than the
other way around.

Crossing oceans of time and sea

water: A very special friendship


BY JOSEPHINE
GROUND
SPECIAL TO THE
GONDOLIER


In the 1920s, when the
teenage high school stu-
dent Eleanor (Pedersen)
Craig qualified for a pen
pal project, she eagerly
took up the challenge by
writing to a girl in France.
Her answer came back
in French and sent Craig
to the dictionary time
after time. After deci-
phering the writing, she
composed a letter in
English and mailed it.
Soon another letter in
French came back. Be-
fore long, letters were fly-
ing back and forth, each
writer learning to read
the other's language.
Thus began a near-
century of correspon-
dence that ended just
months ago when a letter
from France announced
the demise of Craig's
friend and pen pal, Yvette
Marvaud, in October, at
age 104.
Catherine Thauvin,


PHOTO COURTESY OF JOSEPHINE GROUND
Eleanor Craig, standing, told members of the Venice
French Club about her near-lifelong friendship with Yvette
Marvaud, of France, that began as pen pals in the 1920s.


Marvaud's daughter,
wrote Craig that her
mother "was always
happy to write to you, to
send postcards and cut
out newspaper clippings
that could be of interest
to you. ... The last letter
she wrote was to you."
"We shared hundreds
of letters back and forth.
Through those letters we

SUN NEWSPAPERS


FAITH, VALUES AND LESSONS

SUBMITTED BY DAVID MILLER
PASTOR OF FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH


"Yet a time is coming and
has now come when the true
worshipers will worship the
Father in spirit and in truth,
for they are the kind of wor-
shipers the Father seeks. God is
spirit, and his worshipers must
worship in spirit and in truth."
John 4:23-24


conversation between

Here we have a piece of a
Jesus and a Samaritan
woman at a well. Jesus is
traveling through Samaria and
has stopped to take a break,
and he strikes up a conversa-
tion with a woman. She asks
him to explain to her why the
Jews say that the only true wor-
ship happens in Jerusalem and
the Samaritans say that the
only true worship happens on
a nearby mountain. Jesus'
answer lets her know that her
question is no longer valid
because the time has now
come when it won't matter
where people worship, it will
only matter how people wor-
ship.
Christianity was a "doing"
religion, faith without works is
dead. We "do" things in and
with our lives because we
believe in Jesus. One of those
things that we do is worship.
We do not worship in order to
be saved, we are saved by our
faith in Jesus, so we worship.
Worship is something that all
Christians do in some way,
shape or form.
The problem with worship
is that too many times we put
so much humanity into it that


we shut out God. Our worship
becomes more about preserv-
ing our traditions as opposed
to glorifying God and allowing
the Holy Spirit to minister to us
and through us. This is why
Jesus lifts up two characteris-
tics of Christian worship that
are vital spirit and truth.
A worship service can be
contemporary with a praise
band, hand clapping, singing
and dancing, or it can be tradi-
tional with hymns, a choir, a
pipe organ, vestments, and
mystery or anything in be-
tween. None of that matters if
our worship services are miss-
ing spirit and truth. The catch
is that the service itself cannot
be filled with or lacking spirit
and truth. Only the people
who attend the service can be
filled with or lacking spirit and
truth.
A worship service is just
that, a worship service. It is a
time, a place and a style, that is
all. What makes a worship ser-
vice more than a worship ser-
vice what makes a worship
service worship is the peo-
ple who attend and their will-
ingness to be open to the spirit
and to the truth. This is where
we all too often miss the boat.
As the church, we focus so
much on the worship service
- the time, the place and the
style that we forget about
the worship. We need to spend
more time working on the peo-
ple who attend worship than
on the worship service itself. It
does not matter how good the
music is if the people are not
filled with spirit and truth. It
does not matter what time the
service is if the people are not
filled with spirit and truth. It
doesn't matter what the sanc-
tuary looks like if the people
are not filled with spirit and
truth.
Jesus makes it very clear
that the time has come for us
to stop having worship ser-
vices and for us all to start to
worship in spirit and in truth.

Termite swarming season under way


Take steps to protect your home


FROM FLORIDA AGRICULTURE
AND CONSUMER SERVICES

Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is urging
Florida homeowners to take
steps to protect their houses from
one of Florida's most expensive
pests termites.
Swarming season is under way
and now is the time to take protec-
tive action to avoid costly damage.
This swarming season appears to
be more active than the last sever-
al years, perhaps because of last
year's substantial rainfall.
Swarming begins when the
weather starts warming up. The
small, black, winged insects seen
flying around are leaving their
colonies looking for new nesting
sites. While swarmers aren't the
ones that eat the wood, they are a
warning sign that a house is infest-
ed with termites.
Houses should be inspected
annually by a licensed profession-


al for evidence of an infestation so
damage can be caught before it
becomes significant.
Although homes are usually the
single largest investment a person
will make in their lifetime, half of
the houses in Florida do not have
regular termite protection. Termite
damage can be extensive by the
time a homeowner notices saw-
dust or other evidence.
The department's Division of
Agricultural Environmental Ser-
vices regulates and licenses pest
control companies and can pro-
vide homeowners with informa-
tion about whether a business is
properly licensed, the number of
consumer complaints that have
been filed against a company, and
the various types of termite con-
trol contracts.
The division also conducts regu-
lar inspections to ensure a company
is abiding by all the rules and regu-
lations governing pesticides and
pest control businesses. The Florida
Pest Control Act includes measures


designed to protect consumers.
The two main types of termites
in Florida are subterranean ter-
mites, which live in the soil and
attack homes from the ground up,
and dry wood termites, which live
in wood in a building and can go
undetected until they cause exten-
sive, visible damage. Businesses
are required to clearly tell cus-
tomers whether their contract cov-
ers one or both types of termites.
Bronson said people should
also find out before they sign the
contract whether it covers repair
costs for termite damage after a
home has been inspected and
treated or just provides for retreat-
ment if termites are found.
Repair contracts typically have
limits as to when repairs will be
paid for and consumers should
clearly understand these. For
example, a business might not pay
for repairs if there are no live ter-
mites found, or if moisture from
an unrepaired plumbing leak con-
tributed to the termite infestation.

termitehelp.org, or call (800)
HELPFLA ((800) 435-7352).

adolescence. If allowed to
progress, scoliosis can cause the
ribs to crowd together on one
side while ribs on the opposite
side separate widely. The
curvature may force the spaces
S between the spinal discs to narrow
Sand the vertebrae to thicken along
the outer edges of the curve. In a
minority of cases, the cause can be
Traced to habitually poor posture or
leg-length discrepancy; however,
most cases are considered to be
genetic in origin. Regardless, the
chiropractor offers a far more
comprehensive assessment of
- youngsters' spine health than
S schools usually provide.

P.S. For more severe forms of
scoliosis, surgical correction may
be necessary.

POEMS from Page 5B


Tank you for all your gifts, you have showed much care
That on this day I give to you, a box which you don't have to share
Inside you will find candy, a picture too,
With some flowers, pick a few.
I wrote this poem just for you
To really say,
Happy Mother's Day

ByAshley Ittel

Oh, Mom, you're the one,
You make me happy when I'm sad,
And help me up when I fall.


I see you all the time,
But you never yell at me,
Just listening,
And teaching me.

So I want this day,
To celebrate,
What you do for me.


By Mallori Johnson

Mother's Day 0' Mother's Day
It's a day all for play
So grab your Mom and come along
With you I know I belong

You're always there for me when it's needed
And your advice I've always heeded
You're gentle like a dove
And that I really love.

The amount of Love you have for me is
large
That's all that matters
And I don't want that love to break and shatter.


By Brent Killam

More than I have ever asked for!
Outstanding and compassionate about me!
Thoughtful and caring to everyone!
Hopeful!
Everything she does is amazing!
Rejoices me when I'm feeling depressed!
Superb!

Day and night you still amaze me
Amazingly cool
You are truly amazing!


ByAlicia LaMaida

Mother's Day oh Mother's Day
It is a day for love and play

Thank you for all you have done
You brighten my world like the sun
You comfort me when needed
With your help I have succeeded

Mother's day oh Mother's Day
It is a day for love and play

I love you!!!


By Veronica Phifer

Mom you do so very much for me
This is a day that you can see
I love you so very much
You always give me a gentle touch
You're a great mom
And you're the bomb
Home is so great when you're around
I love your voice when you sing a sound


By David Reister

Mom,
I love you
And I hope you feel better
When you do
We'll spend time together
And I bet we'll enjoy it
You are the best mom


By Kate Sarnoski

When Mother's Day comes around
You will never see me frown
I am happy to have a sweet mother like you
And just think of all the wonderful things you do
I know you're a #1 Mom who I will love forever
You can be funny, nice, and even clever
And that's just why I love you!


ByAustin Tarala

I love you
More than anyone else
You're such a great mother
I wish I could see you everyday
I love you more than everything in the world

TIME from Page7B


sonal tour of the Versailles Palace,
which happened to be walking dis-
tance from their large apartment. It was
an unforgettable experience."
Today, the remembrance of that
friendship and its many events remain
in the many letters kept on both sides
of the Atlantic, as Thauvin wrote that all
the correspondence from Craig had
been saved.
Craig also saved the letters she
received. They tell a fascinating story of
the huge events of a very amazing cen-
tury.
Craig, now 97, recently visited the
French Club at the Venice Library. She


came with donations from her collec-
tion of French books.
"At my age," she said, "one must be-
gin thinning the things collected over
the years."
She addressed the two groups of the
French Club the less advanced and
the more advanced in between their
sessions. They were both equally
enthralled with Craig's lively accounts
of her remarkable friendship along
with some snippets of her fascinating
life and travels.
Craig took her friendship beyond the
lines of ink to fill her life with an ocean
of memories.

Creating model


classrooms for


young children


FROM SARASOTA
COUNTY
GOVERNMENT


Forty-five early child-
hood teachers, directors,
and specialists recently
completed intensive six-
day training on positive
behavior support.
The goal is help them
develop skills to support
young children's social
and emotional develop-
ment and prevent chal-
lenging behavior. The
training increases teach-
er confidence and im-
proves the quality of
classrooms, creating op-
portunities for young
children and with emo-
tional, behavioral or
mental health problems
to participate in class-
rooms with typically de-
veloping peers.
In national studies,
early childhood teachers
report that dealing with
challenging behavior is
one of the greatest diffi-
culties in the classroom.
As a result, children are
being expelled from day
care and early childhood
school settings at three
times the rate of those
in kindergarten through
high school.
Through the use of
proven techniques in the
Positive Behavioral Sup-
port program, provided
by the University of
South Florida, partici-
pants are learning to cre-
ate supportive and nur-
turing environments in
their schools and cen-
ters. Experts believe that
fewer children will be
expelled as this training
is integrated into pro-
grams such as early care
and education, Voluntary


Prekindergarten and
HeadStart, and district
classrooms across Sara-
sota County.
Through a joint ven-
ture between the school
district, HeadStart and
the Early Learning Co-
alition of Sarasota Coun-
ty, the Sarasota Part-
nership for Children's
Mental Health funded a
Positive Behavioral Sup-
port coordinator to over-
see the training and pro-
vide follow-up coaching
in selected classrooms in
Sarasota County.
USF's Positive Behav-
ior Support training was
provided by the Tech-
nical Assistance Center
for Social Emotional In-
tervention for young
children and the Tech-
nical Assistance and
Training System for pro-
grams serving prekinder-
garten children with dis-
abilities.
The Sarasota Partner-
ship for Children's Men-
tal Health operates under
a special Substance
Abuse and Mental Health
Service Administration
grant. The focus is on the
mental health and social
and emotional well-being
of the county's youngest
residents children from
birth through age 8.
The partnership fos-
ters collaborations with
service providers, par-
ents and others in the
community.
This helps to create a
comprehensive care net-
work to ensure that no
young child or their fam-
ily falls through the
cracks and fail to get the
help they need.

call 861-1412.


New research center,

scientist and program

added at Selby Gardens


FROM MARIE SELBY
BOTANICAL GARDENS

As the threat of both
habitat loss and species
extinctions increase, Ma-
rie Selby Botanical Gar-
dens, a world leader in
plant science and con-
servation, continues to
expand its capacity to
understand and con-
serve our world's vital
diversity.
As part of this effort,
the Gesneriad Research
Center has recently been
added to Selby Gardens'
Center for Tropical Plant
Science and Conserva-
tion.
Gesneriads are con-
spicuous ecological and
horticultural compo-
nents of tropical forests.
Additionally, many spe-
cies are quite rare, and
even threatened with
extinction, warranting
intensive research to un-
derstand and conserve
these species. Gesneriads
can be herbs, shrubs, epi-
phytes, and even small
trees. While many gesner-
iads are commonly known
- including African vio-
lets, lipstick and goldfish
plants many others are
not well known, including
a diverse group of tropical


plants.
Dr. John R. Clark, a re-
cent graduate from Wash-
ington State University,
will oversee the develop-
ment of the GRC and will
conduct research on the
plant family Gesneria-
ceae. Clark's training is in
molecular systematics,
the study of relationships
between organisms us-
ing DNA sequence data.
In the coming months,
he and other Selby re-
searchers will develop a
molecular research pro-
gram at the gardens to
modernize research cap-
abilities. This research
will address relevant
questions in plant diver-
sity and conservation
and will also be used for
orchids, bromeliads and
other tropical plants.
To learn more about
the Gesneriad Research
Center and molecular re-
search at Selby Gardens,
contact Clark at 366-
5731, ext. 256, or e-mail
jrclark@selby.org.
The gardens are at 900
S. Palm Ave. in Sarasota.
They are open daily from
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with the
exception of Christmas
Day. For more informa-
tion, call 366-5731 or visit

Children First gets $24,000 literacy grant


FROM CHILDREN FIRST


Children First Inc. received a
$24,000 literacy grant from the
Comcast Foundation.
The grant will be used to fund
its Ready to Read! program. The
program is site-based focusing on
literacy and reading skills in pre-
schoolers.
"We're proud to support Chil-
dren First," said Mark Lipford, vice
president and general manager for
Comcast of West Florida.
"Illiteracy is an ongoing prob-
lem in Sarasota County and its sur-
rounding areas, and we hope our
partnership with Children First
will make a difference locally one


child at a time."
Philip Tavill, executive director
of Children First, said, "Children
First is pleased that Comcast has
continued to support the impor-
tance of early literacy in our com-
munity. This grant will directly
impact over 500 children this year
alone."
The Ready to Read! program is
one of five local programs to re-
ceive a Comcast Foundation grant
over the past two years.
Comcast presented the check
March 6 at Children First in Sara-
sota.

Growing up with



Harley fever


T he Harley Fever
isn't a medical
condition, it's
something some men
(and ladies) get from
being around Harley-
Davidson motorcycles.
It's not harmful in most
cases, but it can be
contagious.
John Sizemore, 75,
proud owner of a
beautifully restored
1939 Harley "45,"
caught that special fever
as a kid growing up in
Long Island, N.Y.
Boys around his town
had scooters and
Whizzer motor bikes,
while those a little older
bought used Indians
and Harleys. Anytime
he had a chance he
would watch them work
on their motorcycles,
especially Harleys, since
these were more than
any other make. Hand-
ing owners' tools,
cleaning parts, helping
with adjustments all
resulted in rides on the
back plus gave him a
knowledge of how bikes
worked.
In 1949, a neighbor
bought a 1940 H-D "45,"
which was soon to be
purchased by young
Sizemore for $60.
"Boy did that bike
give me a lot of fun,"
Sizemore said.
Another of the same
model, a 1946, turned
up and he bought it to
replace the aging 1940
version. This one was
low mileage and like
new, but rather plain
because of lack of
chrome available at that
time.
The fever continued
causing a purchase of a
new 1952, 61 cubic-inch
"Pan head" model,
which was a really big
deal. The Korean War
was going on and rather
than be drafted, he
joined the Navy and
sold that fancy bike.
John stayed in that
branch of the service for
four years, was inactive
for four years, then
switched to the Air


Force, eventually
retiring in 1995 as a
lieutenant colonel.
The Sizemores, which
includes wife Karen,
moved to Punta Gorda
at that time, but he
became restless and
naturally being around
airports much of his life,
this man started hang-
ing around the Char-
lotte County Airport.
There he found a
part-time (almost full-
time) job at an aircraft
training academy
owned by a German.
This man owned a 1928
and a 1939 Harley-
Davidsons, both 45
cubic-inch models,
each in excellent
condition.
In his scant spare
time, John found
himself maintaining
them. The '39 had been
sold new and shipped
to Austria just before
WWII and allegedly
hidden under hay in a
barn until a couple of
years after the war.
Somehow his boss, too,
had the fever, tracked it
down and became the
owner. He wanted his
children to grow up in
the "old country," thus
they moved back,
keeping the 1928 and
selling the 1939 to Mr.
Sizemore.
This particular cycle
has very rare options,
including a reverse gear
that was usually used
when side cars were
attached or the owner
simply wanted a con-
versation item. It works
fine but one must be
very careful when
backing up.
Some interesting
specs are as follows: 45
cubic inches (742 cc)
flat head design, mean-
ing 25 horsepower;
three forward-hand


shifting, plus reverse;
compression only 6 to 1.
The original cost was
about $295. The top
speed is 80 mph. It has
a rigid frame with
special spring solo seat.
It was first manufac-
tured in 1928 and
modified several times
to 1939, then no more
serious modifications
took place right up to
1972, the end for this
"workhorse." Many
thousands were made
and shipped all over the
world, often for military
use.
Like Tom Eisaman,
last week's 1955 Crown
Victoria owner who
waited 40 years for it,
John Sizemore had a
long wait of 61 years to
get his "keeper." I'll
probably get a call from
someone who will beat
this record.
