In an about-face, Venice
City Council changed its mind
this week and reconsidered
proposals regarding the draft
comp plan from its Environ-
mental Task Force.
At a Wednesday workshop,
council took out references to
deadlines and mandatory lan-
guage stating the city "shall"
perform a particular task, be-
fore it got down to word-
smithing the remaining dozen
recommendations.
Council adopted new poli-

cies on endangered and
threatened species protection
and wetlands protection, and
inserted language that would
utilize Sarasota County's envi-
ronmental studies and pro-
grams.


Council eliminated propos-
als that called for a temporary
suspension on rebuilding in
coastal areas after a disaster. It
also dropped policies that lim-
ited waterfront land uses and
discouraged the building of
docks and marinas.
City staff were directed to
clarify and rewrite other pro-
posals. A final draft won't be
available for weeks.

Six months ago Dave Aker
became the Venice Police De-
partment's school resource
officer at Venice High School.
The week before school ended,
Aker talked about his new as-
signment with great affection.
"I love this job," he said.
It's a good thing he does.
Teens are famous for bond-
ing with certain teachers, cer-
tain administrators and yes,
certain SROs. So it should have
come as no surprise to anyone,
least of all Aker, that many stu-
dents had bonded with his
predecessor. One of those stu-
dents left a pointed message
for Aker on the white board in
his VHS office.
"You have to earn respect,
new officer."
The message is still there.
"It's a good reminder," Aker
said. "And it's true."
Aker spent the last six
months balancing his various
roles on the VHS campus.
"I am sometimes a coun-
selor to parents who call in and
wonder what to do with their
teens," he said. "To the stu-
dents, I am confidante, friend
and police officer."
One early morning he was
called upon to meet with a 16-
year-old student who fell out
of his chair in class.
"I gave him a breath test and
he blew a .124 at 7:45 a.m.," he
said. "He was suspended,
probably received counseling
and maybe he was assigned a
mentor."
On another day, a teacher
thought one of her students
was on drugs. The boy denied
it and told Aker he'd walked to
the beach on his lunch break,
did some skimming and that's
why his eyes were all red. Aker
determined this was a plausi-
ble explanation for his eyes.
However, there was just one
other problem.
"So you're telling me that in
30 minutes you walked six
blocks to the beach, spent
some time skimming and
walked six blocks back?" Aker
said. "So if I check with your
third-period teacher, you will
not have been late for class?"
The student had been late
to his class. He was sent home
for truancy.
Listening
Aker said there probably are
drugs on campus. In fact,

Resource Officer Dave Aker, left,
talks with Venice High students
Amber Yonker, center, and
Lauryne Reagan about a wrecked
car installed on campus prior to
prom as a reminder for students
not to drink or take drugs and
drive.

when VPD took the drug dog
into a classroom recently, the
dog showed interest in a hand-
bag in the classroom that was
found to have marijuana in it.
In the parking lot, a car was
found to have what was proba-
bly drug residue in the trunk,
but officers also found alcohol
in the car.
Aker said he didn't know if
those youths would get to par-
ticipate in graduation.
"It's usually just a matter of
kids making bad decisions,"
Aker said.
Aker said the most impor-
tant lessons kids can learn is
that behavior brings conse-
quences.
"I'm not sure kids realize
how serious the consequences
can be," he said.
That may be, but VPD Chief
Julie Williams thinks Aker is the
right man to teach them those
lessons.
"I think that SRO Aker pro-
vides a positive police pres-
ence in school for students,
parents and administrator,"
she said. "He has a child in
school at VHS, which provides
him the opportunity to view
issues from both perspec-
tives."
Aker said it's only a few
youths who get in trouble at
school.
"There are so many kids on
campus doing the right thing,"

"Thank God he's alive," said
an angry Courtney Francese
after her 5-year-old male dach-
shund was mauled Wednesday
by what she describes as a pit
bull.
"I'm angry that people
could be so negligent," she
said. "If you want a vicious dog,
don't bring it into an environ-
ment where people have good
dogs that just want to have
fun."
Francese and a friend had
taken Chetchy to the beach at
Paw Park for a fun day in the
sun, sand and water. Turns out,


it was anything but a fun day.
Chetchy was lying on a
towel beside Francese when a
dog came over to check out her
dog.
Chetchy growled a warning;
that's when the dog grabbed
Chetchy by the throat. Chetchy
sustained major damage to his
face and throat.
Francese's friend began to
choke the other dog in an
effort to get it to unlock its jaws
while its owner and a friend
pried the dog's teeth apart. The
owner then left the scene with
his dog without giving any
contact information to Fran-

Celebrate

National

Trails Day

BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER


SUN FILE PHOTO


Looking for a good reason to hop onto
your bicycle and enjoy a leisurely ride along
our two fabulous local trails? Here is just that
opportunity: to celebrate National Trails Day.
On Saturday, June 6, a bicycle ride orga-
nized by the friends groups of Legacy Trail
and Shamrock Park will depart from
Shamrock Park at 9 a.m.
Three ride options are offered. The first
ride is an 8-miler that will take you to the
beach and back.
The second ride is a bit longer. This ride
takes you north along the Venetian Waterway
Park and the Legacy Trail for a total of 30
miles. Of course, if the ride becomes too
much you have the option of turning around
at any point and returning to Shamrock Park.
The third ride is for the young kids, who
will bike the trail around Shamrock Park.
We are so fortunate to have our two excel-
lent, connected trail systems. I highly recom-
mend you take advantage of this opportuni-
ty to join family, friends, and other riders for
a safe ride on a scenic route of your choice.
For your safety, helmets are required for all
bike ride participants.
Ride safe, ride smart.


ROAD ALERTS


The outside northbound
lane of U.S. 41 on the bridges

No injury in hard landing at Venice airport


STAFF REPORT


At 11:50 a.m. Wednesday an aircraft
landed hard at Venice Municipal
Airport on Runway 4-22.
The pilot, the only person on board,
received no injuries and the plane will


fly again, said Fred Watts, VMA manager.
According to Watts, the pilot was
intending to practice landings and
takeoffs. During his first landing, he hit
a little hard, knocking out the nose
landing gear and causing the propeller
to strike the runway.


Emergency response measures
involving police, fire and airport per-
sonnel were initiated and the Federal
Aviation Administration was notified.


FAA personnel arrived and interviewed
the pilot Wednesday afternoon.
Watts said the plane was a light
sport-aviation aircraft.

Offer to Orioles still on table


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

The best action is no action, Sara-
sota County commissioners decided
Tuesday at their meeting at the Robert
L. Anderson Administration Center.
Commissioners expressed frustra-
tion at the lack of response from the
Baltimore Orioles to a letter from
County Administrator Jim Ley offering
a $28.2 million, 30-year agreement for
the use of Ed Smith Stadium. However,
they took no formal action at the meet-
ing, saying that they would wait for a
response from Baltimore.
Deputy County Administrator Dave
Bullock, the lead negotiator for the
county, said that unless directed other-
wise, "We're not doing anything as staff."
"We'll wait to see if the Orioles con-
tact us," he said.
The board's letter, which had a dead-
line of last Friday, included a number of
terms that Baltimore was to respond to,
including a 60-day exclusivity clause.
Since the Orioles' answer Friday to
the offer wasn't the yes-or-no reply for
which county officials had hoped, Ley
wrote back Friday afternoon asking the
Orioles organization for a simple yes or

operate for 10 years in Sarasota County.
The Orioles are also in talks with Lee
County to move into City of Palms Parkin
Fort Myers. Lee officials are awaiting a
draft of a proposed lease with the Orioles,
who currently train in Fort Lauderdale.
Baltimore isn't the only organization
interested in Ed Smith Stadium. The
city of Sarasota received a letter of
intent in April from a company headed
by ex-Yankee Mike Pagliarulo for the
purchase of the complex for $10 mil-
lion. That deal would bring Japanese
teams to the area to play.
The letter from Baseline-iScouts
Group Inc. of Massachusetts was sent
to Sarasota City Commissioner Kelly M.
Kirshner.
Baseline's letter of intent says that, in
exchange for the $10 million purchase
price, it would have exclusive ownership
of the stadium and all facilities associated
with the stadium fields and all adjacent
fields. The sale also would include devel-
opment rights for the 53-acre facility.

CITY NOTES


COMPILED BY
NEWS EDITOR GREG GILES


Koszarski announces
council candidacy
Community activist Ted Koszarski
has announced his candidacy for
Venice City Council Seat No. 3.
He will run against retired firefighter
Emilio Carlesimo, who announced his
candidacy last month. Carlesimo lost in
a three-way race last year to Kit McKeon.
Koszarski has been a regular at city
council meetings over the past three
years, testifying against the proposed
Marriott Hotel and airport develop-
ment, on the city comp plan, and in
favor of passive parks at the former
beach side wastewater facility on
Harbor Drive and Legacy Park.
Koszarski is vice president of the
Venice Neighborhoods Coalition and a
board member of the Venice Taxpayers
League. He previously represented him-
self in front of city council as a represen-
tative of CONA (Sarasota County
Council of Neighborhood Associations).
O'Neill hearing set for July
The Sarasota County School Board
has set a July hearing date in the Diana
O'Neill arbitration matter. O'Neill, a
former teacher at Venice Elementary,
was acquitted of charges of child abuse
of five profoundly handicapped chil-
dren in February. But Superintendent
Lori White found O'Neill violated
numerous school district rules and is
recommending she be fired and her


teaching license revoked. The hearing
is scheduled for two days, July 21 and
22, before arbitrator Mark Lurie. O'Neill
is currently in a paid administrative job,
retaining her $80,000-plus salary until
the hearing.
The school district set up a task force
on instructional practices regarding
severely multiply disabled ESE stu-
dents in response to the case.
Woodley named Interim
Assistant City Manager
City Manager Isaac Turner on May
15 named City Engineer Nancy
Woodley to be interim Assistant City
Manager, replacing Mary Holcombe
who retired last month.
Woodley served as Interim City
Manager prior to Turner's hiring and is
recognized for her management skills.
Turner said he has become familiar
with Woodley since his appointment
and felt her skills and experience in
Venice would make her a good comple-
ment to the city manager's office.
City gets high mark
for safety report
Alan Bullock, director of administra-
tive services, received congratulations
from council members on a recent safe-
ty report that showed the lowest fre-
quency of employee injury on record.
The city experienced a total of only
one reported employee injury since
Feb. 18, which was not considered a
"lost time" worker's compensation
claim, Bullock reported.
The city experienced a total of nine


city vehicle-related motor vehicle inci-
dents in the same time period. All
resulted in relatively minor damage
and there were no injuries. Driver train-
ing was conducted in March 2009 and
is conducted on an annual basis.
Bullock reported a new Drug Free
Workplace Policy is being drafted. The
city's safety committee is in favor if
including as many positions as legally
permissible in the random testing por-
tion of the policy, according to Bullock.


The policy will be submitted for council
approval.
The safety report was the culmina-
tion of a quarterly city Safety Commit-
tee meeting by members Joe Misak
(Department of Public Works/Solid
Waste), Dan Tucci (union representa-
tive for AFSCME), Dave Adinolfi
(Utilities Department), Steve Kona (Fire
Department), Alan Bullock (Adminis-
trative Services), and Pam Stone (safety
and loss control consultant).

The Reality About Newspapers

In the past two years, the newspaper business has faced unprecedented financial challenges. The
economic meltdown and advertising recession have hit our industry hard. But make no mistake about
this: newspaper media print and digital remains strong and will emerge from the current
environment an even stronger multi-platform force.

Here is the reality about newspapers today:

1. Myth: No one reads newspapers anymore.

Reality: More than 104 million adults read a print newspaper every day, more than 115 million
on Sunday. That's more people than watch the Super Bowl (94 million), American Idol (23
million) or that typically watch the late local news (65 million).

2. Myth: Young people no longer read newspapers.

Reality: 61 percent of 18-24 year olds and 25-34 year olds read a newspaper in an average week and
65 percent of them read a newspaper or visited a newspaper website in the past week.

3. Myth: Newspaper readership is tanking.

Reality: Average weekday newspaper readership declined a mere 1.8 percent between 2007 and
2008, and about 7 percent since its peak in 2002. Compare that to the 10 percent decline seen in the
prime time TV audience in 2007 alone. Meanwhile, newspapers' Web audience has grown nearly
75 percent since 2004, to 73 million unique visitors a month.

4. Myth: Many newspapers are going out of business.

Reality: Newspapers, as individual businesses, by and large remain profitable enterprises -
with operating margins that Wall Street analysts estimate will generally average in the low to
mid teens during 2009. While that may be down from historical highs, such margins would be
the envy of many other industries today. As consultant John Morton said in a recent American
Journalism Review article, "Overall, the beleaguered newspaper industry's financial health
has been weakened but remains healthy by most measures. In this environment, that is an
achievement."

5. Myth: Newspaper advertising doesn't work.

Reality: Google's own research shows that 56 percent of consumers researched or purchased
products they saw in a newspaper. Google also says that newspaper advertising reinforces online
ads: 52 percent are more likely to buy products if they see it in the paper.

6. Myth: There are no creative options in newspapers.

Reality: Newspaper advertising options have exploded and now include shape and polybag ads,
post-it notes, "we prints," shingle spadeas, scented ads, taste-it ads, glow-in-the-dark, belly bands
and temporary tattoos, as well as event and database marketing, behavioral targeting, e-mail
blasts, e-newsletters and more.

7. Myth: If newspapers close, you will still be able to get news from other sources.

Reality: Newspapers make a larger investment in journalism than any other medium. Most of
the information you read from "aggregators" and other media originated with newspapers. No
amount of effort from local bloggers, non-profit news entities or TV news sources could match
the depth and breadth of newspaper-produced content.

This is not a portrait of a dying industry. It's illustrative of transformation. Newspapers are reinventing
themselves to focus on serving distinct audiences with a variety of products, and delivering those
audiences effectively to advertisers across media channels.

note of encouragement through life's ups and
downs. Mrs. Lorello also expressed great apprecia-
tion for the care she received from the kind doctors
and staff of Venice Regional Medical Center and
Fletcher Health and Rehabilitation Center, Tampa,

OUR VIEW



Today's grads sail the seas of possibility


H igh school and college gradu-
ates receiving diplomas this
month may face daunting job
prospects, rising tuition rates and a
shaky global economy. But they also
will embark on careers or new chap-
ters of their academic lives with a rare
perspective that should provide clari-
ty to their decision-making and pur-
pose to their pursuits.
The events of the past few years
will leave indelible marks on those
willing to heed the lessons. Greed was
punished. Lax oversight was exposed
as fiscal folly. Living beyond one's
means proved yet again to be a dan-
gerous house of cards, both for indi-
viduals and highly leveraged financial
firms.
The near-collapse of the world's fi-
nancial system should embolden
young graduates, not cow them. Bank
failures and misguided policies that


let unfettered speculation run amok
should make it clear to young people
that the rich and powerful are not
infallible; that accumulating money is
not all there is to life; and that speaking
up when wrongdoing is recognized is
not only responsible, but necessary for
our capitalistic democracy to thrive.
Individual entrepreneurs, invest-
ors and inventors are the lifeblood of
our economy prosperity. New prod-
ucts, new markets and new ideas cre-
ate jobs, expand wealth and create
opportunities for all who are willing
to work hard to improve their lot.
But today's young people have
learned the hard truth that their paths
will cross the unscrupulous, the self-
ish, the undisciplined, the crooked,
even the evil. For every Google, riding
innovation to wild success, there will
be a Bernie Madoff, bilking friends for
self-enrichment. For every Bill Gates,


spreading well-earned wealth among
disadvantaged millions, there will be
an Osama bin Laden, spreading hate
and terror among them instead.
We have been consistent in this
space for decades in our belief that
extremes are all stripes are trouble-
some, whether political or personal.
We have extolled politicians who seek
solutions, not personal rank or parti-
san spoils. We have championed indi-
viduals and groups who serve to
check government power, but not
destroy the public's faith in its ability
to provide vital services and infra-
structure. We're dismayed by festering
partisan sniping and disgusted by
peddlers of perpetual divisiveness.
We are now experiencing the rav-
ages of two extremes. The first was
when windfall revenues bloated
county coffers following Hurricane
Charley, the second came when pol-


iticians all too willing to pander to the
loudest crowd overpromised and
underdelivered on tax reform.
Today's graduates come of age at a
time of historic opportunity. One
among them may develop the next
must-have consumer product such as
the cell phone or iPod. Another may
make a medical breakthrough that
saves or improves the lives of mil-
lions. Most will embark on more-ordi-
nary, but no less worthwhile, lives of
individual fulfillment, serving their
families and communities as best
they can.
Graduations are always about
promise. The students in the graduat-
ing classes of 2009 will embark on
their paths faced with stark choices,
shaped by difficult lessons and em-
boldened by the eternal promise of
the America Dream still shining
brightly on the horizon.


How not to take a bath


Tony Ferrigno did ev-
erything wrong.
With his wife, Elena,
recovering from a stroke,
the 90-year-oldVenice resi-
dent purchased a walk-in
bathtub for $15,000 from a
sales representative who
visited his home. After
putting down a $5,000
deposit, Tony soon be-
lieved the couple would
have to move into an as-
sisted living facility and
didn't want the tub. A good
friend Ken Harris in
North Port asked for my
help when the Ferrignos
couldn't get their deposit
back.
The good news is Elena
made a strong recovery
and didn't need to move
out of their home. And
with the help of a recom-
mended attorney, the cou-
ple got their $5,000 refund-
ed.
With Tony admitting, "it
was a terrible time," and
Elena echoing that things
were "done in a terrible
rush," they both want to
share the mistakes that
were made in an effort to
help others.
Mistake No. 1: rushing
into a decision with little
information and no com-
parisons. Walk-in tubs are
not cheap but vary widely
in cost depending on ma-
terial (fiberglass vs. acrylic),
options (including heaters,
whirlpool jets and premi-
um faucets) and whether
you're dealing with a retail-
er or directlywith the man-
ufacturer. Tony never re-
searched the industry,
looked at no other compa-
ny and made an unneces-
sary impulse decision.
Mistake No. 2: failure to
check out the company.
Tony didn't call the Better
Business Bureau of West
Florida ((727) 535-5522) or
the Florida Department of
Consumer Services ((800)
HELP-FLA) to see if there
were any filed complaints
against the company. (The
BBB reports almost 100.)
He also didn't ask for any
references that would have
allowed him to speak with
former customers and
physically examine the
company's quality of work.
Mistake No. 3: paying in
cash. Tony's deposit was a


combination of a check
and real green cash money.
Using a credit card (not a
debit card) affords con-
sumers possible federal
protection for disputed
merchant charges. Pay off
the bill in full to avoid car-
rying any debt if desired.
Mistake No. 4: failure to
understand the three-day
right to cancel. Under
Florida's "cooling-off" rule,
if a sale is made for goods
or services over $25 in the
home or "at a place other
than at the seller's fixed
location," the buyer has
until midnight of the third
business day (that includes
Saturday) to cancel it in
writing. The required
notice was included in the
contract, but Tony admit-
ted, "I didn't read any-
thing."
Mistake No. 5: Not
quickly seeking the advice
of an attorney specializing
in elder law. Florida's Adult
Protective Services Act
specifically protects "vul-
nerable adults" older than
60 from being exploited.
Under another law, crimi-
nal felony charges can also
be filed. While Tony was
referred to Venice attorney
Mark Mazzeo, who spe-
cializes in this area, he oth-
erwise wouldn't have
known where to go.
"Failing to seek appro-
priate legal advice can lead
to embarrassment, loss of
financial security or place-
ment under a guardian-
ship," explains elder law
attorney Pamela Keller.
"Such individuals could
also find themselves
unwittingly embroiled in
lengthy civil litigation
causing them additional
expense and often with lit-
tle hope of recovery of their
misspent assets."
The Florida Bar Lawyer
Referral Service offers a no-
charge referral to lawyers
who have agreed to pro-
vide a half-hour office con-
sultation for no more than
$25 by calling (800) 342-
8011.
Now you know what
Tony and Elena wish they
had.
The Florida Depart-
ment of Elder Affairs has a
comprehensive publica-
tion on its Web site entitled
Older Floridians Hand-
book including informa-
tion on housing and prop-
erty rights, transportation,
health insurance pro-
grams and a resource di-

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Innocent gator gets the hook


Editor:
I purchased a home in the Venetian Golf & River
Club because the community impressed me as being
an as yet unspoiled area of Florida; unfortunately,
Florida was spoiled for me when I saw gator hunters
capture my favorite friend in the pond by the golf club
and haul him off to his certain demise. Upon further
investigation, I was told by the Gator Nuisance
Hotline, that our golf pro reported a nuisance alligator
on April 13.
I was not the only bystander who witnessed the
atrocity. Several of us booed and hissed at the profes-
sional gator goon who used a big black hook to snag
our favorite fellow.
I have played at several golf clubs in the Venice
area, and I have noticed signs that have been posted:
"Beware of the alligator" and "Don't feed the wildlife."
Nowhere in this community hasWCI posted any signs
designated for the protection of wildlife.
Perhaps my gator buddy would be yet unscathed if
residents and visitors to the Venetian Golf & River
Club were alerted to the potential dangers inherent in
our wildlife population but then, such warnings
might frighten off fee-paying patrons, and certainly
revenue is the No. 1 priority where WCI is concerned.

Seat belts aren't
the problem
Editor:
I just love it. Click it or
ticket.
To me, this seat-belt
law is an easy ticket for
the police. They can see
you aren't wearing it, so
this is a very easy stop for
them.
What's wrong with
them stopping that
speeder, the vehicle cut-
ting in and out of traffic,
the one not stopping for
a red light, the one not
stopping a a stop sign,
the tailgater, etc.
Somehow I think I
would feel safer if these
people would get a ticket,
even if they are wearing a
seat belt. Heck, they need


a seat belt to hold them
in, with all their moves.
And if you want to talk
about revenue, these
stops should give it a
boost.
But I guess this makes
too much sense.
So, I will click it, go
through the red light and
stop sign, weave in and
out of traffic, tailgate or
push granny, not use my
turn signals, not turn on
my headlights at dark or
for the rain or fog, turn
the volume on high on
my handy-dandy, $1,000
built-in boom box to lis-
ten to Jack the Rapper
and go down the road at
90 mph.
After all, I can't be seen
because my click has


made me invi
they thought
was smart.
And by the v
speeders and

Column-bury-'em is not for me

S.L. FRISBIE
GUEST COLUMNIST



Sure, we all love our
alma maters.
Some of us love them
enough to send a few
bucks to the Greater Po-
dunk University Fund
every year or so.
A few are so enamored
by their colleges that they
get down on their knees
and bark like Uga, the
famed University of Geor-
gia bulldog mascot.
In Florida, Seminoles
and Gators usually are
content to confine our
enthusiasm to either The
Chop or The Chomp;
we're just not into kneeling
and barking. And while
most of us enjoy an occa-
sional return to that colle-
giate Fount of Knowledge
from which some drank
with an unquenchable


thirst while others of us
were content merely to
gargle, we really don't want
to spend eternity there.
But there are excep-
tions.
These are the folks who
choose to have their cre-
mated remains (inaccu-
rately called ashes, al-
though that is a topic for
another day) discreetly
scattered over the football
field at the University of
Florida's Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium. These are people
who really love their alma
mater.
There is amove afoot in
the Legislature to make
this practice legal by al-
lowing UF to build what is
called a columbarium,
which is a structure which
has niches in which ashes
can be inumed. (There's
one sentence with two
words that don't come up
that often.)
I had never heard of a
columbarium, and if you
ask me, they spelled it
wrong. Let's call it what it
is: a column-bury-'em.
The problem is that in
order for a site to be desig-
nated as the final resting
place, it must have 30
acres. Apparently that's
about 20 times more space


then is available for cre-
mains (yes, that's a word,
too) at The Swamp.
So the Legislature -
pausing from its efforts to
try to figure out how to
keep government viable
without closing down the
entire public school sys-
tem is considering a bill
to let any of the 11 state
universities construct a
column-bury-'em on
campus.
For my part, I would
just as soon my children
take my grandchildren to
Florida State University
and tell them, "This is
where Granddaddy met
GranMary," and "This is
the archery range where
Granddaddy was the sec-
ond-worst archer in his
PE. class," and "This is
WestcottAuditorium, where
Granddaddy saw the
Kingston Trio," and "This
is the Strozier Library that
Granddaddy visited once
or twice."
I would just as soon not
have them add: 'And over
there, in that column-
bury-'em, is what's left of
Granddaddy."

LETTERS from Page 6A


Never saw anybody so
quick to pick up after your
dogs, and no gloves either.
Where you get 'em from?"
'Aw, it was easy. They
used to be Florida politi-
cians. Once we paid 'em to
vote for selling the rights to
drill off their coast, they
couldn't get no work, and
the citizens won't let 'em
back in the state. We the
only ones would hire 'em
'cause we know how to
control 'em. You'd be sur-
prised at what they'll do for
money. Stuff you couldn't
show on that 'Youtube' or
whatever they call it."
"But say" says the other
one, "where you go for
winter vacation now the
Florida coast is so nasty,
what with the tar balls and
all?"


"Oh, we go down to the
Care-a-bean Islands: clean
sand, good fishing cheap
politicians. Hey, wonder if
they got any oil down
there?"
At which point I woke
up.
So glad this was only a
bad dream. Can't believe
any one who lives here
would want to sell oil-
drilling rights to our close-
in coastal waters. That
fabled green flash at sunset
would be visible all day
long in an oil slick.

Editor:
I rarely read this col-


umnist's articles because
they are so biased. She, of
course, has the right to
express her opinions.
I did read her column
with the heading "Viva
Venice." It seemed posi-
tive, so I read on.
I have no problem with
this PR piece for Bruno; I
too wish him success in
his new venture. But the
digression on water-
boarding was beyond the
pale. The expression
"unfair torture" used by
Ms. Ruppel is oxymor-
onic; there is no "fair" tor-
ture.
Lesson learned nev-
er again read a column by

Readers rose to the occasion


Helped. I'm not calling to complain. I'm calling to
thank you for printing my call. This is the 90-year-old
lady who called and told you about Toprol and how I
couldn't get the generic. Yesterday, I read the paper
and there were responses from your readers, and they
told me what to do and where I could get it. I want to
thank you very much for printing my article because I
just didn't know what to do, and your paper helped
me out. God bless you for helping me out.


One more. I'm calling
in response to the person
who needed the drug
Toprol and couldn't af-
ford it. The drug compa-
ny Pfizer is giving free
drugs for those that qual-
ify. All she has to do is ask
her doctor. He'll fill out a
form and they'll take care
of it. Hope all goes well.
Unstoppable. I'm
calling to add my sup-
port to the caller who
wants the stop signs
taken down on Lucaya.
There never was any sig-
nificant accident history
to justify their installa-
tion. It was done for
activists who had to cross
the curvy street to get to
their mailboxes one
for their convenience at
the expense of the rest of
us.
Help her. I don't un-
derstand why the church-
es in this country don't
step forward and support
Miss California with the
bashing she's getting
from the gay community.
Color full. We're call-
ing to offer congratula-
tions and thanks to two
different groups in Ven-
ice. First, to the Venice
Beach lifeguards who
have done such a won-
derful job of painting the
two lifeguard stands
vibrant tropical colors.
They look fabulous. And
second, to the kids who
have artwork featured in
the current exhibition at
the Venice Art Center.
Kudos to you for such
lovely work.
Snake's alive. I've
been looking in this col-
umn in vain about a situ-
ation I observed down at
the jetty. We were in the
parking lot when we saw


a party of three young
girls walking toward the
jetty, one of whom had a
huge snake draped
around her shoulders. I
believe it was a boa con-
strictor.
I wondered if there are
any regulations about
displaying that kind of an
animal at the jetty. I
myself am terrified of
snakes and would have
avoided that location
had I known there was
any possibility that I
would encounter such a
sight. I would love to hear
your comments in the
paper.
No rights. I was born
and raised in Venice. I
was reading an article
from your paper that
said, "Confusion lingers
over South Jetty beach
access," about how they
had to put that berm up
because they didn't want
people to drive out onto
the beach. There was
nobody ever caught dri-
ving their vehicle out on
the beach. This is just
another snowbird or old
person trying to take
away the rights of people
who were born and
raised in this town. Local
people's rights are being
taken away because
these rich snowbirds are
coming down here and
they want peace. They
want no one around.
They don't want anything
to be done. They don't
even know what goes on
here in town half the
year.
It just irks me that this
would be in the paper.
Let the natives here in
Florida have a few more
rights than the snow-
birds. Snowbirds' houses


on the beach? No one
cares about it. No one
walks through it. Leave
the beach alone. Leave
the jettys alone. We
should be able to drink
beer on the beach. Why is
that a problem? You can
do it on the North Jetty
and on Caspersen, but
you can't do it in Sarasota
County. Why? Because
the snowbirds and old
people don't want it -
people who don't even go
to the beach. They ruin it
for everybody else around
it.
Booted. I just stopped
at the red light on Venice
Avenue and 41 Bypass
and I was bombarded by
what seemed to be a
dozen fire fighters with
their boots, wanting
money. I don't know why
they need money; I
thought we paid taxes
that covered all their
expenses. But the main
thing I'm worried about
is that I almost saw three
accidents, people locking
up their brakes to throw a
dollar into their darn
boot.
For people who save
lives, they're causing ac-
cidents. It's completely
ridiculous and should
not be allowed. It just
seems wrong.
EDITOR'S NOTE: The fire
fighters were participating
in the department's annual
Muscular Dystrophy Asso-
ciation boot drive.
Unbalanced. How do
we let the editor and
publisher of the Gon-
dolier Sun know that we
are extremely unhappy
with the column by a fe-
male writer which takes a
right-wing position,
which in many cases
echoes Rush Limbaugh,
Ann Coulter and their Ilk.
There is no central posi-
tion represented in the
editorials in this paper.
As a longtime subscriber,
I feel it's a shame that
there is no balance in
your editorial. How can
this be corrected?

COMPfrom Page lA


over its relationship with a representa-
tive of another task force who wasn't
happy about feeling shut out of the
comp plan review process.
Paula Dumas, chair of the Economic
Task Force, asked the mayor if the
board should review the comp plan
and make its own recommendations to
stimulate the sagging economy. On at
least two such occasions she was dis-
couraged from doing so by Mayor Ed
Martin, ex officio task force member,
who suggested board members appear
at a workshop to offer their comments.
Dumas said she was frustrated at
how the review process played out.
"We share that frustration with you,"
said Council Member John Moore.
"This has been going on for five years,
beginning in 2004 with EnvisionVenice.
We've held 30 or 40 workshops since
then, and gotten so much input. To feel
there is still some disconnect between
the community is frustrating.
"(It's) great to seek that input,"
Dumas replied, "but if we are not using
that input, that's where the disconnect
happens. I don't want to be at odds with
folks. I want to see how we can move
this closer together and come to some
form of compromise."
"I think we are much closer togeth-
er" on critical height and density issues
than she may think, Moore said. "This
plan grants much more density than
(the former comp plan). We tried to
accommodate the economic engine of
the hospital to seven stories. We're try-
ing to expand on gateway develop-
ments and the airport separately. I
think we are all trying to get to the same
place ... to make Venice one of the best
communities in Florida."
On Wednesday, Martin apologized
to Dumas for discouraging a review by
the Economic Task Force.
"I should have known this was going
on, and should have moved that for-
ward," Dumas said.
"I'm not sure the process has been
consistent," said John Ryan, president
and CEO of the Venice Area Chamber of
Commerce, whose organization had
also sought a meeting with council on


"I should have known this
was going on, and should
have moved that forward."
Paula Dumas, chair of
the city Economic Task
Force, on not being asked
to review the draft compre-
hensive plan





the plan. "Let's see what we actually
have at the end of the day, and if we can
live with it.
"If council is moving in the right
direction and indicating (more) flexibil-
ity in the comp plan, then we are fine."
Preannexations
Council Member Sue Lang intro-
duced new language Wednesday re-
garding preannexation agreements but
it wasn't approved by council.
The proposed clause would stipulate
that preannexation agreements cannot
split an existing neighborhood. Her
rationale was that it had the potential
to destroy the character of a neighbor-
hood and create enclaves that are diffi-
cult for the city to manage.
Martin said the proposed language
could raise property rights issues and
pit neighbor against neighbor. He cited
the dispute over Sorrento Ranches,
where some homeowners wanted to be
annexed into the city while others did
not without guarantees about "compat-
ibility" with currently existing 5-acre
ranch homes.
Council opted to consider the pro-
posal later, when a new annexation
policy comes before it.
Council hopes to have a "final" final
draft of the comp plan available for
public review in five weeks.

cese.
Francese rushed Chetchy to Island
Animal Hospital, where veterinarian
Carolyn Knight performed the life-sav-
ing surgery. Lynn Duffy, another veteri-
narian, conducted the post-op ex-
amination the day after surgery.
Chetchy is recovering at home.
Francese also received teeth scratch-
es on one of her fingers while trying to
rescue Chetchy She was seen by her
doctor and given a tetanus shot.
"My doctor said it is important they
find the dog to see if it has its rabies vac-
cine," she said.
Sarasota County Animal Services is
investigating the incident. Lt. Tom
Stroud, director, said he and his staff
will go as far as they can to determine
who owns the dog. He asked that any-
one with information about the inci-
dent call 861-9505.
Doggie etiquette
Duffy and vet tech Peter Fernandez
think most of the incidents at the beach
Paw Park and there are several every
year occur because of human error.
They recommend that dog owners
observe basic playground common
sense with their pets while at the beach.
"Be responsible for your dog and its
behavior," Duffy said. "This person
should do the right thing and come for-
ward."
Though Fernandez has taken his
own dog to the beach, he doesn't any
more. Duffy has never taken her dogs
there.
"You don't take your dog to the
beach for you," Fernandez said. "You
shouldn't be there sun bathing on a
blanket because then the dog thinks
that's your territory and he should pro-


tect it."
Fernandez also recommended re-
specting the "dog rules of the road,"
which include not taking its toys to the
beach if it's going to be aggressive with
them.
Other rules include:
If you can't handle your dog under
all circumstances, don't take it to the
beach.
When an unknown dog comes on
scene, leave.
Observe basic playground man-
ners. Remember, bullies come to the
playground, and even if you have a big
dog, it could get hurt.
Duffy and Fernandez said it's often
small male dogs that are the aggressors
even though they don't mean to be. If a
fight ensues, they always get the worst
of it.
Fernandez said dog parks are never a
safe place for two reasons: There are
too many dog personalities, and dogs
are pack animals. Eventually, no matter
how well they are playing together, one
of the dogs is going to decide he needs
to establish leadership in the pack.
Duffy and Fernandez suggested that
people who want their dogs to socialize
with other dogs take the them to obedi-
ence and agility classes or join a group
like the Greater Venice Dog Club.
Getting a group of friends together
who have dogs you know at your home
is another idea.
Duffy said the things that worry her
about dogs who go to these parks are
fleas, ticks, leptospirosis (an infection
spread by drinking from mud puddles),
parasites and dog fights.
"But then my kids say I'm overpro-
tective, too," she said.

POLICE BEAT


Man charged with
child neglect
Joseph Warren Sand-
efur was arrested and
charged with three
counts of neglect of a
child without great harm
in the early hours of
Friday morning.
According to a sheriff's
office report, Sandefur is
the father of three tod-
dlers two 1-year-olds
and a 2-year-old. The
children's mother left for
work about 3:30 p.m.,
leaving him to watch the
children. Between 7:30
p.m. and 8 p.m. he
arrived at her workplace
to pick up their blue
Dodge Ram truck and
left the area.
About 9:40 p.m. a
neighbor noticed a tod-
dler dressed only in a dia-
per walking down the
middle of Edmondson
Road about 75 yards
from the Sandefur resi-
dence.
Sarasota County Sher-
iff's deputies responded
to the scene and found a
1-year-old crying on the
front step of the resi-
dence and a 1-year-old
asleep on the kitchen
floor.
Deputies escorted the
mother to her residence
to be with the children.
She stated Sandefur was
supposed to be watching
the children and she had
no idea where he was.
About 11:40 p.m.
Sandefur appeared from
the rear of the residence
and stated, "my kids es-
caped." Officers said he
appeared to be intoxicat-
ed and was slurring his
words.
He admitted drinking
at a neighbor's house and
said he had a woman
check on his children
about 30 minutes before
he returned and the chil-
dren were fine.
Sandefur was taken to
jail without bond.

Deadly missile
The manager of Check-
ers, 1721 South Tamiami
Trail, Venice, received
minor cuts to his left arm
after an angry, intoxicat-
ed customer threw a
metal loading ramp
through the drive
through window, accord-
ing to a sheriff's office
report.
Loren David Schu-
mann, 49, 300 block
Channel Lane, Nokomis
was arrested and charg-
ed with throwing a dead-
ly missile into an occu-
pied building on Thurs-
day.
Schumann was stop-
ped at 480 North U.S. 41
Bypass after leaving the
scene. The report stated
he and his passengers
were very intoxicated.
According to the re-
port, Schumann told
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Office deputies that
while driving up to
Checkers his pick-up
became trapped by a
large delivery truck
blocking part of the en-
trance. Schumann drove
the wrong way through
the opposite drive


through and the manag-
er hit his truck.
Schumann said that
made him very angry
and he got out of his
truck to confront the
manager. When the
manager closed the win-
dow, Schumann said he
punched it and the glass
broke.
When a deputy ar-
rived at Checkers, he saw
a large metal ramp inside
the store where the glass
had been broken. The
manager said that after
an altercation with Schu-
mann about how he was
parked, Schumann be-
came angry and acceler-
ated through the wrong
way of the drive-through.
With an employee close
by and fearing he would
be hit, the manager tap-
ped the truck as it went
by in an attempt to make
Schumann slow down.
Schumann and his
male passenger got out
of the truck and both
began punching the
closed window. Not hav-
ing any effect on the
thick glass, Schumann
picked up a large metal
loading ramp being used
by the delivery truck and
began striking the win-
dow. When the glass
broke, Schumann threw
the ramp inside the
building, narrowly miss-
ing the manager. The
incident was witnessed
by the delivery driver and
the Checkers' clerk.
Shumann's bond is
$1,000.
Officer kills rattler
Venice Police Depart-
ment officers killed a rat-
tlesnake in the area of
Southlake Court and
Pinebrook Road Thurs-
day about 5:30 p.m.
After attempts to cap-
ture the snake with a
homemade noose pro-
vided by a passerby failed
and the snake became
aggressive, officers block-
ed north and south-
bound traffic for safety.
Once the scene was
secured, the on-scene
supervisor fired one shot
into the snake's head.
This was conducted with
an emphasis on safety
and in accordance with

County EMT faces sex charges


BY ELAINE
ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

A Sarasota County Fire
Department EMT has
been placed on adminis-
trative leave following an
investigation into an
accusation that he sexu-
ally battered a 15-year-
old known to him.
Christopher Kilduff,
28, of the 5000 block of
Brack Ave., North Port,
was arrested Wednesday
and charged with two
counts of lewd and las-
civious battery and a
third-degree felony sex
offense. He remained in
the Sarasota County Jail


Thursday on $10,000
bond.
According to a police
report, on the evening of
May 20, Kilduff asked the
victim if she wanted to
do oxycodone with him.
She said no, the report
stated. Kilduff left the
room and returned with
pills and marijuana. He
allegedly snorted a
chopped-up pill.
Kilduff made the girl
perform a sex act at the
house, then took her to
McDonald's, the report
shows. On the way to get
food, he allegedly asked
her if she would have sex
with him, and she said
no.


After leaving McDon-
ald's, Kilduff went to a
Sarasota playground and
allegedly had sex with
the girl, according to the
report. Then he drove her
back to her house.
The victim told police
that once they were at
her house, Kilduff asked
her again to smoke pot.
She told him no. He
pulled out a baggie with
marijuana and told her,
"this is so you wouldn't
tell," states the report.
Kilduff has been with
the SCFD for less than
two years.

With the summer fast approaching
and school ending, Venice athletics direc-
tor Larry Sandburg thought it was impor-
tant to hire a new girls basketball coach.
Just two weeks later, Venice has hired
Joe Whelton to oversee the varsity pro-
gram at the school.
This is a job change for Whelton, who
seven weeks ago was hired as the girls
basketball coach at Sarasota High.
Whelton, who is the sports director at
the South County Family YMCA and lives
in Venice, was chosen as coach at
Sarasota on April 8.


On Wednesday, Sarasota High
announced its new coach, Rob Jutras.
"I think it's a great fit for both schools,"
Sandburg said. "Jutras is running an AAU
travel program in Sarasota (Sarasota
Sting) and Joe is working at the YMCA in
Venice."
Whelton replaces Bruce Reichenbach,
who resigned on May 14, after two years
of coaching the Lady Indians. Last year,
Venice's record was 16-11.
"Sarasota did nothing wrong,"
Whelton said. "I had a work commitment
at the YMCA and it was seemingly taking
more time going up and back to Sarasota.
At the same time, I heard about the open-
ing at Venice and talked to my family


Athletes of the Year


Venice High senior Stephanie Sullivan, left, and Dri Archer, pose with their plaques after getting
named the Female and Male Athletes of the Year. Sullivan, who will be attending Florida Gulf Coast
University on a scholarship, was a pitcher for the Venice High softball. On the season, she had a 21-
4 record and helped lead the Lady Indians to a Class 5A state runner-up finish. Sullivan is holding
the Wentzel Award, which has been given every year since the 1978-79 school year and is named
after Marci Wentzel, a former guidance counselor in the 1970s. Archer, who is playing football at Kent
State University on a scholarship, is also track and field athlete. He helped lead the VHS football
team to a 11-1 record and rushed for 1,482 yards on 9 1/2 games. On the track, he placed second in
the Class 4A state meet in the 100-meter dash as well as set the school record in the 100- and 200-
meter dashes. Archer is holding the Kappelmann Award, which has been awarded every year since
1952 and is named after Ernie Kappelmann, a VHS athlete and graduate, who died in the Korean War.


about the Venice job. In the end it was the
best for my family, work and community
that I resign from Sarasota and pursue
the job at Venice."
Venice returns all five starters from last
year including three incoming sopho-
mores Juliana Cavallaro, Hannah
Revels and Laura Hackett who started
as freshmen last season.
Whelton hasn't coached high school
basketball since 1984 but has a wealth of
basketball experience.
The 53-year-old played guard for the

My wife and I have
lived in this area for quite
some time and have
made many friends and
acquaintances over the
years. That's a blessing
that, frankly, is getting to
be a burden.
You see, many of the
people we know have the

when we start talking
about one of them, the
other one has to inter-

"So, I was talking to
Nancy ...," she says.
"Wait," I cut in, "Work
Nancy, Running Nancy
or Neighbor Nancy?"
"Work Nancy."
"Oh, OK. Go on."
And that's just the tip
of the iceberg. I'm Bob, of
course, but so are her
dad, my boss (besides
her, of course) and an-
other neighbor. Pam
could be her mother, a
work-related friend or an
old friend who's in real
estate.
There's more.
Jerry? Her grandfather
or Running Nancy's hus-
band.
Donna? My mom or
her parents' next-door
neighbor.
Jeanne? Her grand-
mother or her brother's
mother-in-law.
Pat? One of her co-
workers (married to Lar-
ry, my uncle's name) or
the husband of another
friend.
Beth? Another work-
related friend or a close
friend from college.
It doesn't get any bet-

are actually three Bobs
here, plus a Rob. A Lou

and a Johnny. Two Gregs.
There used to be three

some I'm forgetting. I
hope they understand
the strain I'm under.
Clearly, I need to come
up with a way to quickly

them to change their


names (the obvious solu-
tion, though a complicat-

bet is for my wife and me
to pronounce the names
differently.
Sure, nicknames
would work, but eventu-

one to somebody's face;
what if he or she didn't
like it? Well, I guess that
might solve the problem
too, but not in a positive

SUN NEWSPAPERS


Congregation salutes Nazian amid heartfelt goodbyes


BY JACQUELYN HILLER
GUEST WRITER


There were tears and there were
laughs on Sunday evening, May 24,
when friends and members of the
Unitarian Universalist Congregation
of Venice gathered to bid a fond
farewell to their minister, the Rev.
Susanne Nazian. After eight years of
service to this young and growing
church, Nazian is leaving to accept the
position of minister to the Tarpon
Springs Unitarian Church.
Unitarians and friends gathered at
small tables to enjoy an evening of
musical entertainment, skits and loving
tributes as they nibbled hors d'oeuvres
and sweets. Honored guests who
joined Nazian at the head table includ-
ed Kenn Hurto, Unitarian Universalist
Association; Dr. Stanley J. Nazian, pro-
fessor of physiology and biophysics at
the University of South Florida; and
president of the Venice congregation
board of trustees, Barbara Griffin.
Well-known Venice vocalist and
UUCOV music director Deborah
Beriolli, opened the program with
soaring solos, "Yesterdays," "The Son
is You," "I Could've Danced All Night,"
"Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," and
"Summertime." Later, Janet Onnie,
UUCOV member and UU Ministerial
candidate, struck a more contempo-
rary musical note with her impudent
parody of "You Make Me Feel Like A
Motherless Child."
In a beautifully sentimental tribute,
composed and delivered by one of the
founding members, Nancy Stone
traced Nazian's eight-year history with

Stanley J. Nazian, University of South

farewell program for Nazian, who will con-
tinue her ministry at the Tarpon Springs
Unitarian Church.

UUCOV from her installation as the
congregation's first minister, working
quarter time to the full-time position
she has held most recently.
The Florida executive director,
Hurto, had words of high praise for
Nazian and for the UUCOV church.
He told the audience that Nazian
excels in all the major areas that are
needed in a ministry and that mem-
bers can best honor her by moving
forward with love and peace. "We
shall survive and so shall she," he
concluded. Later he spoke of the Rev.
Don Boudreault, who will fill the
position of interim minister begin-
ning in September and through the
upcoming year.
Bennett Gross, representing the
Jewish Community Center, brought a

message of praise and support for
Nazian, citing her role in uniting the
interfaith community in this city. Many
UUCOV members shared favorite
memories in honor of Nazian's legacy,
among them Fran Vanecek, Dale
Provenmire, and Sal Salorenzo, Serena


and Richard Serennelli alternated as
emcees.
As the evening drew to a close, a cur-
tain draping the lectern was drawn
back to reveal a brass plaque that dedi-
cated and named the lectern as "The
Rev. Susanne Nazian Lectern."

PINE VIEW fromPage 1B

year, the school has 177 graduating
seniors the largest graduating class
ever at the school founded 40 years ago
for academically gifted students. In
keeping with tradition, Pine View Prin-
cipal Steve Largo will introduce each
graduate and share personal anecdotes
about each one. He has done that for
each class since 1988 when he became
principal. Lori White, current super-
intendent of Sarasota County Schools,
was in the first graduating class in 1973.
The seniors raise money for their
graduation throughout their high
school years with various activities.
Their fundraising culminates in their
senior year with the sale of water at
events and holiday wreaths and poin-
settias. As an extra bonus for the
seniors, the junior class traditionally
pays for the seniors to attend Cobalt -
the prom as their guests.
A school brochure shows the first
student body totaled 128 students, who
attended classes in portable class-
rooms on 5 acres of land on Tami Sola
Street in Sarasota.
The current enrollment is roughly
2,092 at the school's Osprey location on
Old Venice Road. It moved there in the
1990s to expand its campus. The school
is capped at 2,250 students, but has not
come near that figure in the last couple
of years, which is in keeping with the
decreased enrollment across the dis-
trict.
"And we don't anticipate a need to
cap enrollment next year," Largo said.
The current U-shaped design is
modeled after Thomas Jefferson's plan
for the University ofVirginia with a cen-
tral green. The campus is surrounded
by acreage of native Florida wetland
palms and other foliage. Cement-block

permanent buildings mix with color-
coded portables to identify classroom
studies.

Summing it up

Largo summed up his pride in the
school and the students' accomplish-
ments. He borrowed a quote from Sir
Isaac Newton, 17th century mathe-
matician, physicist and theologian,
stating he uses it a lot: "'If I've seen a lit-
tle farther than others, it's because I
stood on the shoulders of giants.'"
"The current students are able to
accomplish a lot because of those who
went before us, and we have an obliga-
tion to those who come after us," Largo
said.

Student focus

Pine View School is one of the few
full-time public schools for academi-
cally gifted students in the United
States and the only such school in
Florida for elementary through high
school students. The students continu-
ally rank first in the state in student
achievement at this school with its
strong academic focus, and many of its
students go on to become doctors,
lawyers, business entrepreneurs and
more. U.S. News & World Report
ranked the school llth best public
school in the nation this year.
One Pine View graduate Dr. Jay
Skipper, who teaches 10th- through
12th-grade chemistry and physics is
a medical doctor. He moved with his
classmates in 1990 to the present cam-
pus and went on to medical school.
After completing his undergraduate
degree in biochemistry at Florida State
University and his medical degree from
the University of South Florida's College
of Medicine, he said he compared what
life would be like as a doctor and as a


teacher and decided to teach.
"My students are amazing. They're
so smart, as smart as the medical
school students were," he said.
In a recent article, Largo said all of
the school's graduates attend college,
and the students are awarded millions
in scholarship dollars. But that fact
doesn't paint the whole picture of the
Pine View experience. The students
possess a strong sense of humanity and
work equally hard at helping others.
"Part of our school's mission is giving
back to our community and making a
positive difference in the world," Largo
said.
"I've seen changes in the facility, the
campus and the number of students.


Throughout the years we have had the
same, strong academic focus, but of
greater importance is the students
sharing their gifts with service learning.
They've learned the importance of
making a positive contribution to our
neighbors," he said.
This year, he said, the students were
involved in a schoolwide service pro-
ject with All Faiths Food Bank whereby
they gave "tens of thousands of pounds
of food to help a lot of needy people."
With this kind of academic success
and character development, Pine View
School should continue to be a top-
ranked school for another 40 years
... and beyond.

The Reality About Newspapers

In the past two years, the newspaper business has faced unprecedented financial challenges. The
economic meltdown and advertising recession have hit our industry hard. But make no mistake about
this: newspaper media print and digital remains strong and will emerge from the current
environment an even stronger multi-platform force.

Here is the reality about newspapers today:

1. Myth: No one reads newspapers anymore.

Reality: More than 104 million adults read a print newspaper every day, more than 115 million
on Sunday. That's more people than watch the Super Bowl (94 million), American Idol (23
million) or that typically watch the late local news (65 million).

2. Myth: Young people no longer read newspapers.

Reality: 61 percent of 18-24 year olds and 25-34 year olds read a newspaper in an average week and
65 percent of them read a newspaper or visited a newspaper website in the past week.

3. Myth: Newspaper readership is tanking.

Reality: Average weekday newspaper readership declined a mere 1.8 percent between 2007 and
2008, and about 7 percent since its peak in 2002. Compare that to the 10 percent decline seen in the
prime time TV audience in 2007 alone. Meanwhile, newspapers' Web audience has grown nearly
75 percent since 2004, to 73 million unique visitors a month.

4. Myth: Many newspapers are going out of business.

Reality: Newspapers, as individual businesses, by and large remain profitable enterprises -
with operating margins that Wall Street analysts estimate will generally average in the low to
mid teens during 2009. While that may be down from historical highs, such margins would be
the envy of many other industries today. As consultant John Morton said in a recent American
Journalism Review article, "Overall, the beleaguered newspaper industry's financial health
has been weakened but remains healthy by most measures. In this environment, that is an
achievement."

5. Myth: Newspaper advertising doesn't work.

Reality: Google's own research shows that 56 percent of consumers researched or purchased
products they saw in a newspaper. Google also says that newspaper advertising reinforces online
ads: 52 percent are more likely to buy products if they see it in the paper.

6. Myth: There are no creative options in newspapers.

Reality: Newspaper advertising options have exploded and now include shape and polybag ads,
post-it notes, "we prints," shingle spadeas, scented ads, taste-it ads, glow-in-the-dark, belly bands
and temporary tattoos, as well as event and database marketing, behavioral targeting, e-mail
blasts, e-newsletters and more.

7. Myth: If newspapers close, you will still be able to get news from other sources.

Reality: Newspapers make a larger investment in journalism than any other medium. Most of
the information you read from "aggregators" and other media originated with newspapers. No
amount of effort from local bloggers, non-profit news entities or TV news sources could match
the depth and breadth of newspaper-produced content.

This is not a portrait of a dying industry. It's illustrative of transformation. Newspapers are reinventing
themselves to focus on serving distinct audiences with a variety of products, and delivering those
audiences effectively to advertisers across media channels.

REAL ESTATE REMODELING


Angling for a great room


DIVINE
DESIGN

Candice Olson
United Feature
Syndicate Inc.


THE 411
WHO: Interior decorator
Candice Olson is host of
Home & Garden Television's
"Divine Design'.
FOR MORE: Visit
www.HGTV.com or
www.divinedesign.tv

Cindy and John
have a "room with
a view." In fact, the
wooded ravine in the
back yard is the reason
they originally fell in love
with their home. Inside
the house, though, the
view was less than
spectacular.
Wood paneling on the
14-foot-high ceiling and a
dark brick wall absorbed
all the natural light, and
the bulky hearth took up
a huge amount of floor
space. Oversized furni-
ture made the dark room
feel small and cramped.
Add to that the mountain
of plastic storage bins
holding their three kids'
toys and Cindy's collec-
tion of Japanese dolls,
and the clutter factor was
high enough to block out
the view. This great room
sure didn't live up to its
name.
Cindy and John called
me in to shed some light
on this dark, cluttered,
not-so-great room and
create a bright, comfort-
able gathering space. As
the first room you see
when you walk into the
house, it needed to be
beautiful, inviting and
plastic-free, incorporate
storage and display
space, and provide room
for the whole family to
watch TV, play games,
read or just hang out

AFTER: With a few finishing touches including track lighting and lamps this room is now bright, beautiful and perfect for the family to kick
back in and enjoy the view.


together in style.
The family told me
they wanted a casual
cottage feel, so I starting
with warm white and
ivory, and chose a
complementary palette
of sandy tones, pale
blues and light greens.
Add furnishings in
distressed leather and
distressed wood, and we
have the makings of a
room that's a beautiful
extension of the natural
surroundings.
But before we could
start lightening things up,
we needed to do some
heavy lifting. We built
faux beams and installed
molding on the ceiling to
add architectural interest,
and painted it all creamy
ivory to brighten things
up.


Then we took a jack-
hammer to that clunky
hearth to open up some
floor space. We built a
mantel and painted the
brick above it white. A
gorgeous sandy-tone
marble mosaic-tile
surround and a new gas-
log insert make this
fireplace a beautiful focal
point.
We covered the rest of
the overpowering dark

storage.


brick wall with light-
colored custom cabinetry,
which serves double duty
as storage for all the kid
stuff and a display area
for Cindy's Japanese
dolls. It solves the
problems of the "bin
there, done that" plastic
clutter and the domi-
nating ugly brick in one
stroke.
We hung a fan 36
inches below the ceiling


to give the area a more
intimate feel. A sectional
sofa with washable
slipcovers (slipcovers and
kids: a match made in
heaven) is a perfect place
for the family to cozy up
for some quality time.
And where the hearth
once awkwardly
projected into the room,
we now have an ideal
space for a gorgeous
leather armchair. Accent
cushions, an area rug and
a rustic coffee table
complete the space.
In the dining area, I
framed the windows (and
that great ravine view)
with striped cotton
panels in white and wispy
sky blue. Woven grass
blinds provide privacy
and add texture. Cindy
and John's existing wood


pedestal table took on a
whole new look in these
surroundings, comple-
mented by soft white
upholstered dining
chairs. Overhead, a
mother-of-pearl chande-
lier is a natural but
contemporary fixture that
picks up all the colors of
the room.
A few finishing touches
- including track
lighting and lamps and
the room was complete.
Before, Cindy and John's
great room had nothing
going for it but its
windows. It was cramped,
dark and piled high with
plastic storage. Now it's
bright, beautiful and
perfect for the family to
kick back and relax in and
enjoy the view.
It's greatly divine!

Check Will to see how debts get paid

A recent case ruled on by

the Third District Court
of Appeals will likely
send shutters through the legal
community regarding the
language contained in your
Will and its potential effect on
your homestead property. The
general facts of the Third
District Court of Appeals case
are simple Mom has a Will
prepared that states that her
debts are to be paid upon her
death. However, this clause


goes on to state that her
properties are to be used to
satisfy those debts in the event
her estate has insufficient
assets to cover her debts.
Mom's real property was titled
in the name of her trust, which
also provided that her property
be used for satisfaction of her
debts.
Following Mom's death, the
personal representative applied
to the court for homestead
status, which the court
granted. One of Mom's children
objected to the trial court's
ruling and appealed. The Third
District Court of Appeals
agreed with the trial court that
Mom's property was properly
devised but refused to grant
homestead protection against
creditors because the language
contained in the Will and Trust
stated that her property was to
be sold to satisfy her debts.
The devastating part of this
ruling is that the testamentary
documents did not specifically
state that the real property be
sold, but that her real property
be used to satisfy her debts.
Generally speaking, if a testa-
mentary document specifically
states that homestead property


A simple fix might be to insert
language that excludes the
homestead property from creditor
claims or removal of the
debts clause altogether.


be sold, it will lose its exemp-
tion against satisfying creditor
claims. The ruling from the
Third District Court of Appeals
has now changed that rule to
mean that language used in a
Will or Trust that suggests a
person's homestead property
be made available to satisfy
creditor claims is now ripe for
loss of the exemption from
being used to satisfy creditor
claims. In essence, the loss of a
decedent's homestead protec-
tion against claims from
creditor's is no longer limited
to instructions in aWill or Trust
that it be sold.
In previous articles, it was
explained how Florida's
homestead laws exempt a
person's permanent residence
from begin forcibly sold to


satisfy a debt. The general
exceptions to this rule are
mortgages, claim of liens and
the failure to pay taxes both
property and income. In most
estates, the most frequent
creditors who file claims
against an estate are credit card
companies and health care
facilities. These organizations
cannot force a decedent's
homestead property to be sold
to satisfy their claims unless
the property loses its exempt
status. The recent ruling from
the Third District Court of
Appeals may have changed all
that depending on the
language contained in a
person's testamentary docu-
ments.
So what does this mean to
you? Most testamentary


documents will have a "pay
debts" clause. The idea behind
these clauses is to ensure that
the personal representative
pays the decedent's debts
before distribution of their
estate. These paragraphs need
to be reviewed to determine if
the language used has any
reference to using real property
to satisfy those debts. The real
question will be to what degree
such paragraph describes the
property to be used to satisfy
creditor claims. For example, if
the paragraph says "all my
property" this may be enough
to cause loss of the homestead
exemption. A simple fix might
be to insert language that
excludes the homestead
property from creditor claims
or removal of the debts clause
altogether.
If you are not certain as to
whether the language
contained in your testamentary
document runs the risk of
losing your homestead exemp-
tion from creditors, you should
contact your attorney and ask
for a review of your pay debts
on death clause. It might be the
best gift you could give your
descendants.
