King verdict gets positive



response from locals


Michael King, 38, now faces
the death penalty. Twelfth
Circuit Judge Deno Economou
ordered jurors to return Tues-
day morning for the penalty
phase of the trial.
North Porters who have
been following the King mur-
der trial say Denise Amber
Lee's own actions on the day of
her death led to the conviction
of her killer.
Dave Garofalo called King's
conviction for the kidnapping,
rape and murder of 21-year-
old Lee "a heavy load lifted off
everyone's shoulders."
The North Port city com-
missioner, who was at work
Friday as a captain with the
Pasco County Fire Depart-
ment, watched the verdict via a
live online video.
On Tuesday, Lee's heart-
breaking 911 call that she
made from inside her killer's
Camaro on Jan. 17, 2008, beg-
ging to be let go, was played for
jurors. The North Port mother
of two young boys was found
buried off Toledo Blade
Boulevard two days later. Her
ring and hair were found
inside King's car.
"We were so involved in
this, and I guess I've been
biased the whole time, since
we have all the information
about what was going on

behind the scenes, and we
know what kind of a person
Denise was so to have 12 of
our peers who didn't know her,
especially after the last two
days, with the defense trying to
place the reasonable doubt, as
a city, I think it's a chance to
move forward and turn the
page," he said.
Garofalo is friends with
Denise's widower, Nathan, and
a member of the Denise
Amber Lee Foundation, which
is working to improve the 911
system. He said he had just
spoken to Nathan.
"He's elated that this has
happened, and that they (the
jury) came back the way it did
so quick," he said. "Denise is
the reason he got convicted. If
she didn't do what she did, in


terms of planting evidence, he
might have walked ... she
couldn't save herself, but she
made sure that he wouldn't do
this to anyone else ever again."
The trial is set to enter the
penalty phase Tuesday, and
Garofalo will be in the court-
room.
Garofalo worries that at-
tempts by King's defense team
to create reasonable doubt
may keep the jury from recom-
mending the death penalty
and "bought him another 15
years."
"I believe in the appeals
process, but some of those
people who have been con-
victed are still in there 31 years
later at the taxpayers' burden,"
he said. "I guess I'm biased,
being so close to the family,
but he does not deserve to be
breathing anymore."
Georgetta Ciserella, of
North Port, says the verdict
was appropriate.
"It should have happened
faster, but that's definitely what
happened and that's what he
deserved," she said.
North Port City Commis-
sioner Michael Treubert said
Friday the jury "did a good job.
They listened to the evidence. I
think they came up with the
right decision."
North Port resident Joan
Morgan couldn't attend all five
days of the first part of the trial,
but she made sure she was in

One exodus ends,


another continues


Enrollment is up for the
first time in three years,
and charter schools are
the reason.

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The exodus from public
schools triggered by the reces-
sion appears to be over, anoth-
er sign the economy is begin-
ning to recover. That's good
news for some teachers who
were laid off earlier this year.
For the first time in three
years enrollment has increas-
ed. The district enrolled 720
more students than last year,
bringing total enrollment to
41,501.
"We're pleased and cau-
tiously optimistic about our


student enrollment for the first
week of school," said Lori
White, superintendent of Sara-
sota County Schools. "Pro-
jecting student population is
as much an art as it is a sci-
ence, but the initial numbers
at many of our schools exceed-
ed our expectations. Right now
it looks as if we will be able to
put several unassigned teach-
ers back in district class-
rooms."
Overall, the district's projec-
tions on which its budget is
based were pretty close,
underestimating total enroll-
ment by only a couple hun-
dred students. It overestimated
the number of charter schools
students, underestimated high-
schoolers and was pretty much
on target at the elementary

Three men rescued at sea


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR


"It was supposed to be a day
of practice," said Venice Fire
Department Battalion Chief
Tony Grisanti. "Instead, it was
a day of the real thing rescue
at sea."
When Sarasota County
Corrections Officers Patrick D.
Busenborg, Jason LaCross and
Mark C. Wright launched their
boat off Venice Beach for a day
of fishing, they never dreamed
when they passed the Venice
Police Department boat and
commented on how nice it
was, that it would play a role in
saving their lives.
VFD had conducted jet ski
and fire boat 51 reality training
on Wednesday and was pre-


paring to do the same on
Thursday when dispatch call-
ed and said there was an over-
turned vessel about 16 miles
off the jetties with three people
in the water.
"We dispatched our boat
with three firefighters and a
couple of medics on board,"
Grisanti said. "We notified VPD
and the Coast Guard and they
put their boats in the water,
too. The Coast Guard put its
helicopter up as well."
Marine officers Phil Phillips
and Paul Joyce, were at the
helm of VPD's new 30-foot
Intrepid Marine Interceptor
unit 97.
Phillips said they received
the call about 8:30 a.m.

Swim, bike, run

BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER

It's that time of year when area triath-
letes gather at Sharky's to compete in the
annual Venice Triathlon hosted by the
South County Family YMCA. Jennifer
Tucker, event coordinator, says this year's
event is shaping up to be bigger and bet-
ter than ever.
Considered to be a sprint triathlon
because of the relatively short distances, it
provides experienced athletes the opportu-
nity to practice their transitions as well as
helping them stay in competitive shape. For
novices or those
wishing to give
the event a try, it
provides a great
venue for seeing if
this sport is for
them.
On Saturday SUN FILE PHOTO
morning, Sept. 5, SUN FILE PHOTO
at 7:30, the participants will enter the Gulf
for a 400-meter swim. Exiting the water,
they hop onto their bikes for an 8-mile ride
through the city. The final phase is the 5K
run, which takes the runners south on
Harbor Drive to Caspersen Park and back.
If this event piques your interest and you
would like more information, contact the
YMCA at www.southcountyfamilyymca.org,
or check out one of the local bike shops.
Good health it's worth the effort.

Task force seeks ideas for airport development


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


The Economic Devel-
opment Task Force has
come up with its first
actionable recommen-
dation for city council
- it wants to ask the
community for innova-
tive ideas that could
boost economic devel-
opment at Venice air-
port.
Chair Paula Dumas
will present the task
force's recommendation
at an upcoming council
meeting.
"There seems to be a
lot of ability to look at
what we can be doing
to stimulate economic
growth within the city,
and specifically at the
underdeveloped air-
port," Dumas said.
A recurring theme
during task force discus-


ESTEE L

FREE


sions with local busi-
nesses and nonprofits
was the need for a desti-
nation hotel in Venice
near the beach.
"It's on the table,"
Dumas said.
"They continue to
(say) we have inade-
quate hotel space locat-
ed in prime locations
for tourists. We have so
much to offer from a
resort standpoint -
beaches, a wonderful
historic downtown, peo-
ple who are very kind
and open yet there is
no place to stay near the
beach. Do tourists want
to stay by a highway or
by a vista? That was dis-
cussed."
Dumas said she's not
married to the idea of a
hotel, and hasn't engaged
in discussions with any-
one about any specific
project, "including folks


from the past," a refer-
ence to former council
members.
"We are making this a
pure process and open-
ing our minds to what is
possible out there.
"We are talking about
quality of life. What is
going to be the best use
of that property while
maintaining the integri-
ty of the community? A
10-story hotel doesn't at
all fit our vision."
Timing
While the task force is
anxious to move for-
ward, timing for the
request could pose a
problem. The city is
embroiled in numerous
battles with the Federal
Aviation Administra-
tion, including a dis-
pute over permits to
build hangars at the
Venice Jet Center, run-

way safety zones that
impact a local golf
course, scaling back air-
port operations, updat-
ing the airport master
plan, and, most recent-
ly, noncompliant leases
uncovered during an


FAA inspection in May.
In light of those
issues, some task force
members said it was
premature to pursue
the idea.
"Timing is impor-
tant," Mack Wilcox said
at the last task force
meeting. "If, in fact,
council has an idea to
restrict certain (airport
activities), we need to
know that."
He encouraged the
task force not to move
ahead without knowing
where the FAA or city
council stands on a
number of key issues.
"Those issues have to
be resolved before we
get to those details we
are talking about here,"
he said.

urged the board to at
least give the city time
to comply with the FAA's
latest inspection report.
It's a necessary step,
they said, to stay in the
FAA's good graces and
ensure access to future
federal grants.
'A lot of this funda-
mental compliance issue
is going to need to be
resolved," Watts said,
"before we get moving in
a proactive way on the
airport. It's very doable,
very affordable, but we
are going to have to make
some serious political
decisions."
In the meantime,
Watts urged members
to participate in the
upcoming Sept. 25 air-
port workshop to ensure
their views are heard.
"I don't think they
(council) will approve
anything at this time,"
said council member
Kit McKeon, sitting in
for vacationing ex-offi-
cio member Mayor Ed
Martin.
He encouraged the
task force to continue
planning while council
works through the com-
pliance issues and the
unfinished airport mas-
ter plan.
"In the future (busi-
nesses at the airport)
will have to go through
the same scrutiny as
you or I if we were going
to build a house," he
reminded task force
members.
'Providing value'
"We are tired of spin-
ning our wheels," said
Trent Young, task force
vice chair. "Showing our
willingness to say we
support (some kind of
development) would
help mend that FAA
relationship."
"Part of our frustra-
tion is ... are we provid-
ing value to anyone?"
said Joan McGill. "When
we started, (our direc-
tion) was for us to
decide. I am sensing
everyone is frustrated
on where we should go
from here" should coun-
cil reject the proposal.
"We have made our
intent clear," Dumas
said. "We are at a point
where we need to put
forth the idea of a RFQ
(request for qualifica-
tion) to see where they
stand on that. If there is
not a positive response,
then what are we sup-
posed to be doing? Why
are we sitting in these
chairs? We are looking
for some way to move
forward."
"Both (Fred Watts
and Kit McKeon) are
telling us very diplomat-
ically to cool our jets,"
said Dan Bechtold, the
newest member. "Just
wait and time this a lit-
tle."
"You don't want to
draw a line in the sand,"
McGill said. "We want
to be helpful."

Old scam is new

again in tough times


BY NICK MILANO
SUN
CORRESPONDENT

The bank examiner
scam, which dates back at
least a century, has once
again surfaced, claiming
two local victims.
In this con, the scam-
mers call innocent bank
customers and identify
themselves as a bank ex-
aminer, according to the
Sarasota County Sheriffs
Department.
Victims are instructed
to meet a law enforce-
ment agent at a designat-
ed location for instruc-
tions on how to assist in
an investigation to catch
an embezzling bank teller.
Victims are asked to
withdraw cash from their
bank accounts and hand
it over to the police officer.
The problem: There is
no investigation or crook-
ed bank teller, and the per-
son they give the money
to is no cop.


Since February, accord-
ing to the sheriff's office,
two elderly women have
fallen victim to this scam.
Both women met with the
crook posing as a cop and
each gave him $5,000.
The crook who identi-
fied himself as a law en-
forcement agent was de-
scribed by both women
as a white male between
50 and 60 years old. He
was between 5 feet 9
inches and 6 feet tall with
an average build and
complexion.
Though there are no
suspects, the sheriffs de-
partment said it has
launched an investiga-
tion and alerted other
police agencies through-
out the state.
Sarasota sheriff's de-
tectives remind people
that police agencies do
not use citizens in these
types of investigations.
Anyone with informa-
tion about these scams is
asked to call 861-1719.

County SAT scores top national, state results


STAFF REPORT


Students in Sarasota
County's public high
schools outperformed
their peers in the United
States and in other
Florida districts, on aver-
age, on the SAT taken in
the 2008-09 academic


year, according to a press
release by the Sarasota
County School Board.
Local averages were
higher than national
and state averages in all
three sections of the SAT
- mathematics, critical
reading and writing
skills.


Nationwide results
for the class of 2009
were announced Aug.
25 by the College Board,
the not-for-profit orga-
nization that adminis-
ters the voluntary tests,
which are the most
widely taken standard-
ized college admissions


test in the U.S.
According to the Col-
lege Board, the number
of SAT takers nation-
wide rose to more than
1.5 million in 2009, the
highest number of test
takers in recent years.
The Florida Department
of Education reports


that nearly 100,179 stu-
dents across the state
took the SAT this year.
In Sarasota County
public high schools,
1,313 students took the
SATs. The percent of
SAT test-takers among
the class of 2009 was 59
percent statewide and


46 percent nationally.
Other details of the
SAT results include the
following:
Sarasota County
average scores are 23
and 26 points higher
than state averages in
critical reading and
mathematics, respec-
tively, and 21 points
higher in writing.
Compared to sen-
iors nationwide, aver-
age scores for the dis-
trict are 19 points high-
er than the national
average in reading, nine
points higher in math
and eight points higher
in writing.
Average Sarasota
County SAT scores in-
creased in all areas test-
ed: there was a five-point
increase in reading; a
four-point increase in
mathematics and an
eight-point increase in
writing.
There were mixed
results at the state and
national levels. State-
wide there were slight
increases in reading and
mathematics and a
slight decrease in writ-
ing. Nationally, average
scores in 2009 decreased
slightly in reading and
writing but remained
the same in mathemat-
ics.
The SAT consists of
three major exam sec-
tions including read-
ing, mathematics, and
writing. Each section
receives a score on the
scale of 200-800. For
individual exam sec-
tions, Florida's average
score was up one point
in reading (497), up one
point in mathematics
(498) and down one
point in writing (480)
compared to 2008.
Advanced
Placement
The College Board
also released Advanced
Placement results, ac-
cording to a press
release from the Florida
Department of Educa-
tion, and for the fourth
year in a row Florida had
the greatest one-year
increase in the number
of public school AP
exam-takers when com-
pared to all other states.
In addition to large
increases in the number
of test takers, the state
also experienced a 13.7
percent increase in the
number of AP exams
being scored 3-5 com-
pared to a 9.4 percent
increase for the nation.
Minority student par-
ticipation is a primary
reason for the state's
growing AP success.
According to the College
Board, Florida contin-
ues to have the greatest
number of African-
American AP test takers
and the greatest num-
ber of AP exams scored
3-5 when compared to
all other states. Florida
also ranks third among
all states in the number
of Hispanic AP test tak-
ers and the number of
test takers scoring a 3-5.

OUR VIEW


Higher FPL rate would shock the system


Charges of conflicts of interest,
implications of excessive execu-
tive pay and political jockeying
by major statewide players are turn-
ing a $1.3 billion-a-year rate increase
request by Florida Power & Light into
a riveting Tallahassee soap opera. At
stake is a potential 30-percent base
rate increase for FPL customers.
The first day in what is expected to
be weeks of Public Service Commis-
sion hearings on the increase featured
calls for the resignation of a PSC
staffer who attended a party at the
house of an FPL vice president. Earl-
ier in the day, Gov. Charlie Crist and
the state's most influential industry
lobby issued dueling statements on
the request.
Crist called the request "excessive."
His criticism echoes previous rejec-
tions of the rate increase by guberna-
torial candidates state Attorney Gen-
eral Bill McCollum and Chief Finan-


cial Officer Alex Sink. The state's office
of the public counsel, which repre-
sents Florida residents' interests be-
fore the PSC, asked the agency to not
only reject the request, but to force
FPL to reduce rates by $355 million.
Associated Industries, which repre-
sents hundreds of Florida corporations,
said the PSC must approve the increase.
"The PSC has to balance the needs
of those who purchase this service
with the financial stability of the com-
pany providing it," read the statement
issued by AI's general counsel, Tam-
my Perdue.
The PSC and FPL have been at
odds over an agency request that the
company provide payroll records for
executives who earn more than
$165,000 a year. Commissioners want
the data to determine whether the
executives are overpaid.
FPL, which provides electricity to
all of Charlotte, DeSoto and Sarasota


counties, has been a world leader in
the expansion of solar-power genera-
tion and in converting existing plants
to cleaner-burning fuels. FPL has sub-
mitted a $1.6 billion proposal to build
a natural gas pipeline to supply two
plants that currently bum oil to pro-
duce electricity. The company is
building a 25-megawatt solar plant in
DeSoto County and is planning a 75-
megawatt solar plant on Babcock
Ranch in southern Charlotte County.
FPL, which is the Florida unit of
FPL Group, serves more than 4.5 mil-
lion customers in the state. The com-
pany operates under a complex regu-
latory regimen. In fact, even as FPL
seeks the base rate increase, it has
also filed a fuel rate decrease request
with the PSC, which it says will save
utility customers more than $100 mil-
lion next year. Ratepayers have also
been paying a surcharge since 2005 to
cover FPL's hurricane recovery costs.


Customers paid a $442 million PSC-
approved surcharge until recently to
pay for storm damage FPL incurred
during the 2004 hurricane season.
We agree with Associated Indus-
tries that FPL's viability is vital to the
state's interests. We support its for-
ward-thinking investments in green
technologies and cleaner fuels. That
said, Florida is still burdened by dou-
ble-digit unemployment and falling
home prices. A fragile economic re-
covery is taking root.
There may be a time in the near
future when FPL needs higher rates to
ensure its continued success, but that
time is not now. Even amid the reces-
sion, the company and its parent
remained very profitable. Like its resi-
dential and business ratepayers have
in recent years, FPL should first look
to trim costs and improve efficiencies
before saddling customers with high-
er bills.


Social insecurity


MARY KAY RUPPEL
COLUMNIST


I'd like to share a recent day
of mine with you.
While driving merrily along
in my personal clunker, I rolled
down my window to say "Hi"
to a poodle pal of mine named
Lucy. She barked "Hi" back,
and as I pressed the button to
roll up my window, a loud
popping noise was followed by
the window being unmovable.
I made a reversal in plans and
decided to head to my friendly
mechanic's place, when guess
what it started to pour.
I walked into the shop quite
disgruntled and wet. I was told
they would diagnose the prob-
lem, so I sat down, drying
myself with a paper towel, and
decided to read their paper
while waiting. That was my
second mistake, my first being
to wave at a dog.
A page 3 headline said: "No
payment increase slated in
Social Security." Trustees (cz-
ars?) who oversee Social Secur-
ity are projecting there will not
be a cost-of-living adjustment
for the next two years. How-
ever, the average monthly de-
ductions for the millions of us
people with Medicare Part B
coverage will still be taken.
I don't know about you, but
that looks like a reduction in
our benefits. I know that our
benefits as the program is set
up are not supposed to be
reduced. Last year, we received
a 5.8-percent increase in our
benefits. So, what happened?
Barbara Kennelly heads the
National Committee to Pre-
serve Social Security and
Medicare and her group wants
Congress to increase Social
Security benefits next year,
even though the formula does
not call for that. She would like
to see either a 1-percent in-
crease or a one-time payment
of $150. Oh well, whatever.
As I finished reading the
"good" news, my friendly me-
chanic sat down next to me to
give me the diagnosis. When
they sit down, you know you're
in trouble.


My little clunker's door
mechanism had imploded, so
to speak, and would require an
amputation and replacement.
My car does not have a health-
care plan, so as its caretaker I
sweetly asked if they could just
get that window in an upright
position until my finances are
in a more upright position, but
they said it was too late for
that. So, my window was rep-
aired and I drove on to face the
day, poorer and wiser.
Now, you know that I'm real-
ly not old enough to know much
about Barry Goldwater and his
run for the presidency in 1964,
but my mommy told me about
it. Anyway, Goldwater proposed
that Social Security not be man-
dated, but that people would
have a choice as to whether they
wanted it. He thought some
folks might want to keep all their
income and invest it as they saw
fit. Opponents of that idea, who
obviously outnumbered propo-
nents, said that many too many
people would spend everything
and not invest in their future.
I know I was in the minority,
but I liked the idea of being
able to do with I wanted with
my income. I could see possi-
bilities of making investments
as I desired and being in con-
trol of my own destiny. I really
liked that idea, but most peo-
ple didn't. So here we are.
Adding insult to injury, the
administration wants to re-
vamp our entire health care
system. Why? It has been prov-
en that 85 percent of the folks
enroll in the health insurance
provided by their employers.
Fifteen percent do not. So, the
entire health-care program is
to be "adjusted" to accommo-
date the people who won't
carry their own cumbersome
weight. It's not fair.
I know that our editor wrote
in his "Fine Whines" column
that Gondo opinion writers
have boundaries from which
we are not to digress, as we are
a community paper. I agree
with the guidelines and be-
lieve Social Security and health
care are community interests.
However, in anticipation of
my critics who keep suggesting
to the editor that I find employ-
ment elsewhere, may I suggest
that when looking for faults, try
using a mirror, not a telescope.

Mixed emotions about photos of dogs

Purpose served. If you can take one more call about the pic-
ture of the dogs on the front page of the Gondolier Sun, here's
mine: I think it was a good idea to print that picture. If it stops one
person from using dogs as a weapon against police officers, or
anybody else for that matter, then I think it served its purpose.
People who train dogs to attack, to be vicious, need to know that
it won't be tolerated. It's cruel to the animal and they need to be
stopped. I think that picture served its purpose.


Disappointed. I'm very dis-
appointed with the decision of
the Venice Gondolier Sun to
publish the picture of the dead
dogs lying helpless on the
lawn. The accompanying arti-
cle was well-written and self-
explanatory. Perhaps a picture
of the actual arrest could have
been published instead.
Shame on you.
Nice dogs. Your newspaper
has shown very poor judgment
by posting a large front-page
photo of two dogs that were
shot to death due to a domes-
tic dispute. And what is more
troubling than that is that
there was more than one
police officer on the scene. I
know these dogs and they're
not aggressive.
Shame on you for the photo
and the police. I think that
should have been handled way
differently.
Nothing wrong. I was cer-
tainly surprised at all the peo-
ple calling in about the dog
photo on the front page. I
think you ought to put a photo
on the front page of an aborted
baby. Maybe that will wake up
the people to see what's really
going on. It seems like dogs are
more important than little
children, and that just hurts
me terribly. It seems like peo-
ple would rather have pets
than children. People spend
more on their dogs than they
do on their children. Where is
our country going to?
I'm sorry, but there was
nothing wrong with that pic-
ture on the front page. Like you
said, it wasn't a gory picture; it
was an accurate picture, this is
what happened. The dogs had
to be shot. But let's print some-


Let 'em


Have It


thing that's really important -
a picture of an aborted baby -
a situation that needs to be
changed.
Assault and pepper. On
the dog thing yeah, it was a
horrible thing that they had to
kill the two dogs, but officers
are trained to use two types of
force. You got deadly force and
not-so-deadly force. They can
hold a can of pepper spray in
one hand and a gun in the
other. It did say they were
shooing off the dogs, so it's not
like the dogs came out and
jumped directly at them and
the only thing they could reach
for was their gun.
They said they were trying
to shoo them away. Why wasn't
pepper spray mentioned in
the articles? We would use
pepper spray on a human
being that was attacking a
police officer, but on an ani-
mal, we shoot it. Why didn't
they use pepper spray?


Sensationalism. With all
due respect to your Opinion
writer and to Bob Vedder, I sin-
cerely feel that showing that
picture of the two dogs dead
on your front page, full color,
in better graphics than you've
ever shown in any of your pic-
tures in Our Town, was totally
unnecessary and verging on
sensationalism. And that's my
opinion.
Egregious. I'm having
trouble understanding the Gon-
dolier Sun's editorial choices. For
example, in today's paper, you've
repeated on sequential pages, a
three-columned, lengthy article
about the Ospreywaterfront revi-
talization. It is the exact same
article taking one-third of the
page on page 3A and then
rearranged, the same words,
about a fourth of a page on
page 5A.
This is not something an
editor can easily miss. I don't
understand how you people
are getting away with publish-
ing this newspaper when you
make from the smallest gram-
matical and spelling errors,
which you do every week, to
egregious errors like this, this
week. This is separate from the
publisher's decision last week
to run erroneously a front-
page picture about two dead
dogs that, despite what you
say, did actually show a pool of
blood.
Something is wrong with
the management of the Venice
Gondolier Sun if you can so
easily make these mistakes
and expect us to continue buy-
ing your newspaper. You need
to do way better.
EDITOR'S NOTE: The repeated
story wasn't an editorial choice, it
was a mistake. And no blood was
showing in the photo of the dogs.
Done with dogs. Enough
already about the dogs on the
front page. You don't know
about the abuser and trouble-
maker who turned his dogs on
the police. How about the offi-
cer protecting himself, not
knowing whether the person
also has a gun?

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Molesters are


lowest of the low

Editor:
I am sick of opening the paper and reading about
child molesters, but I am not surprised. The "sun
coast" seems rife with these subhumans who destroy
the lives of their young victims. Where better to find
children than in an alleged paradise that draws fami-
lies?
Most of the perverts (often relatives) are allowed
access to their prey by the parents, but ignorance is an
excuse that won't hold water. Pay attention, folks.
I am, however, surprised that perhaps well-mean-
ing idiots want to help the molesters through some
inane therapy programs, often at taxpayers' expense.
Anyone who would deliberately harm a child cannot
be helped by some school-trained sympathizer who
believes in the basic decency of every human being.
Some humans were abused, which led to their inabil-
ity to tell right from wrong, but I don't give a damn
about that anymore. Many molestees grow up with-
out harming another soul.
Sex offenders are treated better than DUI offenders
as long as they play by the rules, because "perma-
nently revoked" means nothing to a kiddie-rapist; but
surely anyone can understand that every case is dif-
ferent than the next. Child molesters will not stop.
There is the drunk driver who is at .08 after a busi-
ness supper, and the college boy who meets an
underage girl who sneaked into a bar with her sister's
ID. But what about when "Uncle Ernie" has his way
with the kids while he babysits?
Pardon my language, because I am a Christian and
want to heap no more upon other Christians' shoul-
ders, but I say God damn a child molester.
What say you?


'Feed-ins' are food

Most Venice residents
realize that Venice City

bold leadership from

Gainesville may be the

It is time for leader-

10 percent. Now you
know why there are so

they are so rich.
Many injured people

often it is best to hire one.

Airport report

will be useful tool


ISAAC D. TURNER
GUEST COLUMNIST


The city of Venice
recently received a land-
use inspection report
from the Federal Aviation
Administration regarding
Venice Municipal Air-
port. Every year the FAA
selects two general avia-
tion reports per district
to inspect land-use and
rental agreements. This
year, the Venice airport
was one of the two in the
Southern District.
The 33-page inspec-
tion report:
Addresses 60 years of
activity at Venice Munic-
ipal Airport.
Calls for more docu-
mentation, information
and discussion about
some nonaviation uses.
Questions the city's
use of some airport prop-
erty for storage of con-
struction materials and
vehicles before they go to
auction.
Calls for clarification
of agreements dating as
far back as the 1940s.
Seeks information re-
garding long-term leases,
which were the norm
decades ago when it was
difficult to lease airport
properties, and those
businesses that were
willing to do so needed


time to recoup their in-
vestments in structures
they built that eventually
would revert to airport
ownership.
Questions if the rev-
enue from Sharky's rest-
aurant is divided appro-
priately between the air-
port enterprise fund and
the pier fund.
Questions why the
Senior Friendship Cen-
ters, located on the east
side of the Intracoastal
Waterway, does not pay
rent to the airport.
None of the items
identified for discussion
or correction was the re-
sult of the current coun-
cil's actions.
City staff has already
met with FAA representa-
tives in an effort to
understand and resolve
all issues affecting federal
grant assurances and
other compliance re-
quirements.
In fact, in 2008, before
the FAA initiated its
inspection, city council
directed staff to begin
looking at the leases on
airport property. The city
council also hired DY
Consultants to create the
airport master plan to
fine tune the airport's
land uses. DY's master
plan draft is scheduled
for first review by January
2010.
The city views the
inspection report as a
tool to improve activities
at the airport and contin-
ues to work closely with
FAA to modify and im-
prove its leaseholds and
other current issues.

SEA from Page 1A


"We knew the three in the water had
life jackets on and that the boat was a
20-foot white Aqua Sport boat," he said.
"We headed out with lights and sirens
to the site."

Hard to find
Still it took them a while to find the
overturned boat and the men. Several
things contributed to the slower recov-
ery.
"While the water was smooth at the
jetties, sea conditions quickly became
very unfavorable with 3-4 foot seas and
a good size storm building to the west
of us," Phillips said. "The other thing
that hampered us was a change in
directions."
Originally the rescuers were told to
head due west off the Venice Inlet.
About nine miles out they received a
verbal course change to head north,
running parallel to the shoreline.
"When we arrived at the location,
there was no debris, no boat and no
people in the water," Phillips said.
About the time the Coast Guard
arrived at the same site, another verbal
course change took rescuers back out
to the original location, which would
have been Marker M-9.
"We began doing 300-foot grid
searches in the area and we were find-
ing nothing," Phillips said. "Then we
noticed the Coast Guard helicopter had
stopped and was hovering south and
west of us."
The helicopter radioed that it had
found an overturned vessel with three
people in the water clinging to the ves-
sel. The actual location was 18.4 miles
out at Marker M-8.
"The helicopter dropped a rescue
diver in the water who gave us a
thumbs up that the three people were
uninjured," Phillips said.
At that point the helicopter backed
off, and the three men were pulled into
the police boat.
Fortunate
"They were so happy to be on the
boat," Phillips said. "This was one of the
guys' first dives since he was certified.


One is a relative of North Port Police
Chief Terry Lewis and the one piloting
the boat worked for us for about three
months before leaving to work for the
county."
Once the men were on board, the
helicopter and the coast guard cutter
left the scene, but the VPD boat stayed
in the area.
"We were afraid to leave the over-
turned boat until Sea Tow and Tow Boat
US arrived because we were afraid the
boat would become a navigational haz-
ard," Phillips said.
The men arrived back at the jetties
about 1 p.m. minus their cell phones,
licenses and keys. Because none of
them were injured and since they still
had their wet suits on, they dove from
the VPD boat and recovered their fish
marker, two spear guns and a GPS.
When the men knew the boat was
sinking they did all the right things,
Phillips said. They grabbed a bag cooler
with three bottles of water and five
peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
They had also fired a flare, but it fizzled.
Despite the bad luck, the men were
safe.
"It was a good day," Phillips said. "No
one lost their lives, the overturned boat
came in about 5 p.m. and everyone
worked together as a team.
Shannon Wright, wife of Mark, said
when the Venice Police Department
officer called her about 11:30 a.m.
Thursday, the call unnerved her.
"We have two small boys, so it was
pretty scary," she said. "We feel so fortu-
nate and blessed that they came back
safely. My husband is out getting a new
cell phone right now because his is at
the bottom of the ocean. We're just so
fortunate and happy."
Phillips said VPD's new boat more
than paid for itself Thursday.
"It was just the right size for this type
rescue," he said.
In fact, everyone performed so well
that VPD Chief Julie Williams met the
rescuers and the survivors when they
came ashore, and she presented
Phillips and Joyce with gold challenge
coins. These awards are given for out-
standing service to the community.

Kennedy recollections


SUN PHOTO BY KIM COOL
Thomas H. Smith of Venice looks at an inscription from the late Senator Edward M.
Kennedy on the flyleaf of a book of recollections of Joseph Kennedy assembled by the
senator in 1964.


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

As the nation mourns
the loss of Sen. Edward
Kennedy of Massachu-
setts, Venice resident
Thomas H. Smith looks
back on a longtime fami-
ly connection to the
Kennedy family.
Among Smith's Ken-
nedy collection is a pri-
vately published book
written by the senator for
his siblings and their
children. The subject was
his father, Joseph Ken-
nedy, patriarch of the
clan that produced Pres-
ident John E Kennedy
and Senators Robert and
Edward Kennedy. Robert
was Attorney General for
a time during the 1,000
days of JFK's term in the
Oval Office. Following the
assassinations of John
and Robert, Ted made
one run for the presiden-
cy before settling into the
long-time career in the
Senate that ended with
his death late Tuesday
evening, Aug. 25, at the
family home on Cape
Cod. He was 77.
The book is signed on
the flyleaf to Smith's aunt
and uncle, John and


Eileen O'Rourke of North-
hampton. O'Rourke, a
Massachusetts state rep-
resentative, and his wife,
whose family knew Jo-
seph Kennedy, became
friends of both John and
Ted Kennedy back in the
1950s. John dined at their
house several times and,
in 1962, when Ted was
gathering recollections
for the book on his father,
they contributed to that
effort.


"My progress at
the hospital has
been fine and my
doctors tell me I
will be home for
Christmas":'
From a 1964
letter to John and
Eileen O'Rourke
from Edward
M. Kennedy






Oct. 12, 1964, while in


the hospital recovering
from a plane crash, Ted
Kennedy wrote a two-
page letter to the O'Rourk-
es requesting their help
with the book.
"It is hoped that these
essays could be complet-
ed by the first of the year
in order to get the book
published by early
spring.
"My progress at the
hospital has been fine
and my doctors tell me I
will be home for Christ-
mas. I enjoyed this chance
to say hello and send you
warmest regards.
"Sincerely, Edward M.
Kennedy" and signed by
hand, "Ted."
Copyrighted by Ken-
nedy, the book was a lim-
ited edition meant for his
family and close friends.
Smith said he does not
know how many copies
were printed.
A more extensive story
about Smith's collection
of Kennedy family mem-
orabilia will be published
in the Our Town section
of the paper for the Nov.
21 edition of the Venice
Gondolier Sun.

FOOTBALL VENICE VS. OSCAR SMITH




MISSED CHANCES HURT INDIANS


Venice falls to Tigers, 27-13,

in front of national audience


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


Venice missed three chances
to score within 10 yards of the
goal line and nationally ranked
Oscar Smith didn't.
The Tigers scored touch-
downs in each quarter to notch
a 27-13 win over the Indians on
Friday night in the season-
opener before a nationally tele-
vised audience on ESPNU and
more than 8,000 fans cram-
med into Beard-DeLong-Easley
Field at Oscar Smith High in
Chesapeake, Va.
Oscar Smith, the defending
AAA Division 6 state champs,
are ranked No. 6 in the nation by
Rivals.com, No. 8 in nation by
USA Today and top-ranked
team in the Triple-A Preseason
byVirginiaPreps.com.
"Playing the number eight
team in the country, you get
inside the 20 (yard line) four
times (actually three times) and
come away with zero it's tough,"
Venice head coach John
Peacock said. "You have to take
advantage when you get down
there. They scored when they
got down to our side and we did-
n't do it on our side."
Venice showed it the national
spotlight didn't effect them.
On their second possession,
the Indians used a 25-yard punt
return by Josh Boyle to set up the
first touchdown.
Starting at the Tigers' 27-yard
line, two runs by University of
Florida-bound senior quarter-
back Trey Burton got Venice to
the 16-yard line. Four plays later,
Burton scored on a 1-yard run


off tackle with 6:11 left in the first
quarter. The PAT by Joey Carlin
went wide right.
It is the first time in more
than a year that Oscar Smith
trailed during the regular sea-
son. In going unbeaten last year,
the Tigers never trailed the regu-
lar season.
Oscar Smith came right back
to score the tying touchdown
thanks to completions of 26 and
19 yards to Quinta Funderburk
and Charlie Ricks from
University of Alabama-bound
Phillip Sims. The duo hurt
Venice the entire game as they
combined for nine catches and
200 yards.
Funderburk scored on a 17-
yard pass from Sims near the
pilon with 2:35 left in the quar-
ter. The kick failed as the snap
was fumbled.
Oscar Smith grabbed a 13-6
lead with 11:53 left in the second
quarter on atwo-yard run byJ.C.
Coleman. Ryan Trotman kicked
the PAT.
Then the rains started.
The wind pushed the rain
sideways but the teams contin-
ued to play.
Midway through the second
quarter, Venice moved the ball
down to the Oscar Smith 10-
yard line thanks to catches of 24
and 20 yards by senior Beckett
Wales.
However, on fourth down
and 6 from the 10-yard line,
Burton's pass to Wales was
knocked down by a Oscar Smith
defender in a driving rain storm.
Venice, which had posses-
sion of the ball most of the sec-
ond quarter, once again

Friday's game in Chesapeake, Va.


advanced into Tigers territory.
Faced with a second-and-
four from the 4-yard line, Venice
was called for an illegal proce-
dure penalty moving the Indians
back to the 9-yard line. A option
run byJustin Grant got two more
yards but an incomplete pass
forced a fourth-and-seven with
two seconds remaining in the
second quarter.
Burton, who had 78 yards
rushing, took off from 7-yard
line but was ruled just inches
from the goal line as time
expired in the first half.
"They said upstairs he's in (for
the touchdown) but I don't
know," Peacock said. "I guess we
will find out tonight when we
watch the replay."
Burton finished with 276 yard
passing, which is just two yards
from his own record of 278 set
last year against Port Charlotte.
"I thought overall being the


first game we did pretty well,"
Peacock said.
However, the outcome was
unacceptable.
"We weren't able to establish
then run I thought we would be
able to do and that hurt us,"
Peacock said.
"Not happy with it at all (the
outcome), "he said. "We lost the
game but I see some things we
can definitely build on."
Oscar Smith scored a touch-
down in the third quarter and
Venice came right back and got
down to the Tigers' 11-yard line
but lost the ball on downs.
The Tigers added their final
TD in the fourth quarter to grab
a 27-6 lead with 8:34 left.
The Indians didn't quit as
Burton took Venice down the
field and scored in 1 minute, 23
seconds thanks to catches by
Boyle, Bo Ceravolo, Wales and
Grant.


Burton scored on a 8-yard
run with 7:16 left to pull Venice
within, 27-13. Carlin ended the
scoring for Venice with his PAT.
"I think it's definitely a great
experience for them and defi-
nitely thinkwe grewup as a foot-
ball team," Peacock said. "I was
proud of the way they fought
back in the end."
Ceravolo finished with five
catches for 53 yards while Wales
had four for 77 yards and Boyle
had three for 94 yards.
NOTE: Before the game at
midfield, Burton received the a
plaque after being named the
Marines Honor, Courage,
Commitment Award for the
hard work, service and dedica-
tion to his community.
Venice will return to action
Sept. 11 for the first of three
straight home games, against
Braden River at Powell-Davis
Stadium.


Volleyball team falls to Berkeley Prep


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

There is no letup in
Venice's schedule. Not even
the preseason.
Two days after playing the
23rd-ranked team in the
nation Tampa Plant, the Lady
Indians followed it up with No.
13 Tampa Berkeley Prep in the
Preseason Classic.
Venice's play was like night
and day between the matches.
The Lady Indians battled
every point, attacked the ball
and played strong defense
against the Lady Buccaneers
but fell just short in their four-
game loss, 25-23, 23-25, 25-23,
25-16 on Thursday at Venice
High.
In the other match, Plant
defeated Fort Myers in three
games.
"We were disciplined and in
the right spots," Venice coach
Brian Wheatley said. "We
played hard for four games.
Tonight we didn't care what
Berkeley did on their side of the
net, we cared about what we
did on our side of the net. There
was not a lot of strategy. We've
got to do our things right before
we can compete with another
team.... This is what preseason
is about. We had a bad match.
We had a great match."

change in their defense from
Tuesday night's four-game loss
to Plant.


"We changed our base
defense," Wheatley said. "It
wasn't working for us Tuesday


night. We went with something
that we are pretty good at."
Venice jumped out to a
quick 6-1 lead in the first game
as the Lady Indians were div-
ing all over the floor digging
balls. In total, Venice had 76
digs including a match-high 18
by senior Dorothy Rahal.
"Our record is still 0-0,"
Wheatley said. "I wouldn't
change anything. I definitely
had their attention in practice
yesterday. All you really want is a
team that works hard and cares.
The team showed the coaches
tonight they do just that."
Berkeley Prep, ranked No. 13
in the nation by Prepvolleyball.
com, battled back to tie it at 10-
10. The game was tied five more
times including 19-19 before
the Lady Buccaneers took a 21-
19 lead. Venice got within a
point at 24-23 on four hits, but
Berkeley sealed the first-game
win on an unforced error.
The second game was tight
as the teams were tied 12 times
with the biggest lead by any
team just two points.
Tied at 23-23, junior
Autumn Duyn pounded down
one of her five kills in the game
to give Venice game point.
Senior Morgan Shattuck
closed it out with a block.
Junior Payton Herschberger
tore up the right side with four
kills in the first game and five


more in the second game. She
finished with a match-high of
16 kills.
Matching her on the other
side was Duyn, who also had
nine kills combined in the first
two games and ended with 15
kills.
"Quite a big difference
tonight," Duyn said. "We were a
lot crisper and the team was
working really well together. We
realized what we were doing
wrong on Tuesday and prac-
ticed getting to our spots
Wednesday so now we've got it."
"Payton did a great job on
the right side and Autumn was
big again on the outside,"
Wheatley said. "We were able
to sustain rallies tonight. It was
really a good quality volleyball
match. We played the 13th-
ranked team in the country
down to the wire every game.
We were in every game."
In the third game, Venice ral-
lied from a 22-17 deficit and got
within a point at 23-22. Venice
fought off one game point on a
kill by Emily Daniels, who had
nine kills total in the match but
Berkeley closed it out with a kill
by Lindsay Young.
"It was all positives
tonight," Wheatley said. From
what we saw Tuesday night to
tonight, it's a much better way

GIRLS GOLF


Venice is young as new season begins


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


Losing two of the best golfers in
school history to graduation, this year's
version of Venice High girls golf team is
without any seniors.
Gone are Casey Kennedy, who is a
freshman at Auburn University, and
Crystal Smith, a freshman at the
University of Illinois.
Kennedy, who qualified for states
four years, captured a state title in 2007
and tied for third last year. She placed
22nd and 13th in her first two years for
the Lady Indians. Smith, a three-time
state qualifier, tied for 28th as a fresh-
man, 13th as a sophomore, and 14th in
her junior year.
These two golfers helped transform
the Lady Indians into title contenders.
In 2006, Venice placed third in the Class
2A state tournament and was just a


stroke out of second place. In 2005,
they were seventh in the state and 13th
in 2007.
This year's team is made up of four
juniors and two freshmen.
"Obviously without those two the
makeup of the team changes dramat-
ically," Venice coach Wayne Robertson
said. "When you don't have a couple
of girls who can shoot in the 30s that
changes a team quite a bit."
This year's team isn't entirely new as
the Lady Indians do return three golfers
from last year juniors Maggie
Kowalik, Taylor Olson and Morgan
Farrell. Also back is Jessica Broverman,
who played as a freshman before mov-
ing away last year. Rounding out the
team are freshmen Alissa Roegge and
Madeline Chavez.
"We've only had a short time out
here but they have gotten stronger and
are hitting the ball farther," Robertson


said. "They have improved over last
year and are enjoying themselves. They
are showing up for practice and work-
ing hard. They like playing together and
are having a lot of fun too."
Robertson is excited for the season.
"I look forward to the season, and
the group of girls that come out are
great kids who are working hard.
Honestly their game is not at that level,
for sure, but it doesn't matter. Each year
is new. I want them to have fun and
enjoy the season."
With the loss of top two players,
Robertson wouldn't call this a rebuild-
ing year.
"Like golf and tennis, I don't know
if rebuilding is applicable," he said.
"Playing this sport starts years ago
before they get into high school. You
are playing golf for years and that is
why they have the skill level they
have. To some degree, it's out of your


control. Those girls who play for years
and put the time in, come around
once in a while."
Venice will play 10 matches this year,
including five at home, and will open
the season Tuesday against Sarasota
High.
Robertson's squad will work on con-
sistency as the season progresses.
"More than anything we are lack-
ing consistency in hitting the ball," he
said. "We hit a good shot then not a
too good shot. We have to eliminate
some of those bad ones. We have the
talent to make putts, hit off the tee
and chip the ball, but putting it all
together and doing is consistently is
what we have to work on. That comes
over time. Every round gets better,
and we will see where we end up at
the end of the season."

and middle schools.
High schools up
The county's six high
schools enrolled 10,891
students, 69 fewer than
last year, but 355 more
than the district project-
ed.
In South County, North
Port High enrolled 2,593,
175 more than was pro-
jected.
At 1,985, Venice High
has 74 fewer students
than last year, three less
than they had projected.
Laurel-Nokomis
School, which serves pre-
K-eighth grade, was pre-
dicted to lose nearly 50
students, but remained
steady, going from 1,057
last year to 1,058 stu-
dents this year.
Enrollment at Pine
View, one of the nation's
few schools for the gifted,
rose from 2,124 to 2,180.
Middle
schools down
District officials cor-
rectly predicted fewer
middle and elementary
level pupils in regular
public schools.
Enrollment at the
county's seven middle
schools fell by almost
300, enrolling 6,634. The
district projection was off
by a mere 50 pupils.
In South County, Ven-
ice Middle enrolled 743.
North Port's Heron Creek
School enrolled 1,171, six
less than anticipated,
while Woodland Middle
enrolled 764, 78 more
than anticipated.
In North County, mid-
dle school enrollments
were: Booker 863, Brook-
side 1,070, McIntosh 897,
and Sarasota 1,126.


Elementary down
The county's 23 ele-
mentary schools enroll-
ed 15,662 pupils, down
389 from 16,011 last year.
The district underesti-
mated the total number
of elementary level pu-
pils by 90.
Venice Elementary
showed a significant
drop, losing almost 10
percent of its students.
The district predicted 680
would show, but only 603
did. Garden Elementary
fell from 694 to 669. Taylor
Ranch fell 851 to 808.
Englewood Elementary
fell from 400 to 386.
The district's four
small alternative schools
for troubled youth
enrolled 105 students,
down from 131 this time
last year.
Charter schools up
Where did all the mid-
dle school and elementary
level students go? Many
appear to have switched to
charter schools.
Districtwide, charter
school enrollment in-
creased by close to the
same number lost by the
public middle and ele-
mentary schools.
Enrollment in the dis-
trict's 10 charter schools
went up almost 30 per-
cent, from 2,988 to 3,642,
an increase of 654 pupils.
The district anticipat-
ed an even larger in-
crease of almost 1,000.
Imagine Schools, a
national chain of charter
schools in 12 states, cre-
ated by teachers and
based in Washington,
D.C., opened a school in
North Port last year and
at Palmer Ranch this
year. Those two schools
garnered the lion's share
of increased charter


school enrollment dis-
trictwide.
Having added a grade
level, Imagine School at
North Port enrolled 612
students, up from 490.
Imagine School at Palmer
Ranch opened this year
with 300 pupils.
Sarasota Military
Academy went from 616
to 712 students. Sarasota
School of Arts & Sciences
grew from 632 to 671.
Sarasota Suncoast Acad-
emy enrollment went up
from 321 to 336. Student
Leadership Academy on
Venice island went from
271 to 285 pupils. All of
the charter schools saw
an increase in students.
Negative ad
makes debut
The continuing trend
in charter school growth
hasn't gone unnoticed by
the local teacher union.
The Sarasota Classi-
fied/Teachers Associ-
ation recently mailed a
four-color glossy bro-
chure to elementary and
middle school parents in
the district. Apparently it
was an effort to protect
their ranks and stop the
exodus of students from
public elementary schools.
The brochure de-
nounced Imagine School
in North Port in particu-
lar for being the only "C"
rated elementary school
in the district when all
the others are rated "A"' or
"B" schools. "Who would
choose to send their chil-
dren to the lowest ranked
elementary school?" it
asked parents.

the school's parent group
who were offended by its
content.
The school's rating, he
said, was typical of any
school starting out.
"Historically, schools
in their first year don't do
as well on FCATs, based
on the nature of FCAT
scoring. A good amount
of points are predicated
on comparing previous
results," Matthews said.
Because the school
opened its doors only last
year, it has not yet had
the chance to benefit
from "student improve-
ment" points.
"Second year schools
typically make a jump. We
are expecting to continue
our tradition of excel-
lence," Matthews said.
FCAT pushback?
The economy is partly
responsible for increasing
charter school enrollment,
Matthews said. Private
schools are less affordable
and home school parents
may need to go back to
work, he said.

"Second year
schools typically
make a jump."

Matthews, princi-
pal of Imagine
School


Another reason could
be testing pushback.
"Parents are disen-


franchised with FCAT-
driven teaching and want
vs, prin- more of a three dimen-
Charter, sional education pro-
rised by gram. Our niche is overall
ich riled excellence," Matthews
said. "We attend to the
entire child, which in-
cludes character educa-
tion. We have an ex-
tremely strong financial
2009 literacy program ... and
our enrichment program
321 is arguably better than
94 any in the area.
35 "They left the public
612 system for a reason in the
300 first place. The charter
336 option really is a strong
671 option for them. They
vote with their feet. That's
712^ a strong testament to the
285 quality of charter school
systems."

Parents complain of

overcrowded buses


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

Call it growing pains or
beginning-of- school
woes, but complaints
about overcrowded school
buses are flooding into
Sarasota County School
Transportation Director
Ellery Girard's office.
Girard says it happens
every year, and it takes
about 10 school days to
get all of the bus-route
bugs worked out.
"None of our buses are
running over capacity,"
he said. "We have over-
flow buses to take care of
that problem and get the
kids home safely."
Buses for the district
are 65, 71 and 77 passen-
ger capacity.
Girard said if a bus is
overcrowded, the excess
number of students are
off loaded and put on an
overflow bus. Some of the
reasons that buses be-
come overcrowded is be-
cause children forget
what bus they are sup-
posed to be on and get on
the one they rode last year.
"Some kids get on a dif-
ferent bus than they rode
to school because it will
take them near the place
where they have an after
school job," Girard said.
"We do have what we call
courtesy busing, which
allows children going to a
grandparent's house, ajob
or piano lessons to ride a
different bus home than
what they took to school."
Girard said they ask
parents to wait 10 days
before their children take
advantage of this service,
but some parents just
don't follow the rules.
"They can sign their
child up during the first
10 days of school, but we
don't begin the courtesy
busing until after those
10 days," Girard said. "It's
first-come first-served
until the bus reaches


SUN FILE PHOTO
capacity. If a child moves
into the area and that is
his normal bus, then one
of the courtesy riders
would have to stop riding
that bus."
Of the overcrowded
buses, the problem has
been remedied for three
or four of them already.
There are about seven or
eight to go.
"We will have them all
fixed by the end of next
week," Girard said. "We're
working out the prob-
lems one at a time."
One parent complain-
ed to Girard that her son's
bus was overcrowded.
Girard checked. It was a 65
passenger bus, and when
he called the driver there
had only been 30 some
children on the bus for the
last three days. When he
called the mother back,
she said her son didn't like
sitting with three people
in a seat.
There were com-
plaints concerning four
children to a seat with
some children sitting on
the floor.
"Our buses are built for
three kids to a seat,"
Girard said. "Ideally, we
run them about 10 under
capacity to make up for
bulk. If there is a kid sit-
ting on the floor it's
because he doesn't want
to sit with his brother and
he's trying to see what he
can get by with. The dri-
ver won't leave until
everyone is in a seat."
After the 10th day of
school, bus drivers give
Girard a seating chart,
meaning each rider has
an assigned seat.
Girard said 20,000
children ride district bus-
es and he thinks the
transportation depart-
ment has a pretty good
track record for getting
all of the bugs worked
out in a 10-day period.

Apollo 11 turns 40

BY DON BLAIR
GUEST WRITER

Four decades after man stepped on the moon, NASA held a reunion for those involved -
including this retired Mutual Radio Network reporter.
I watched the launch from the carrier that tracked the mission, and I was there for the splash-
down and recovery.
The actual Apollo 11 Command Module is at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.
The quarantine trailer, MQF, which housed the Apollo 11 astronauts for three days (not 21, as
many still assume these days) now resides at the Udvar-Hazy Air Museum at Dulles
International Airport outside Washington, D.C.
The USS Hornet, the aircraft carrier that tracked that epic mission until the splashdown in
the South Pacific just over 40 years ago, is firmly docked at the former ni .il. i st' ion in
Alameda, Calif., across the bay from San Francisco. I had the high honoi1 oi iiling on ihii

Hundreds of book buyers lined up to get Aldrin's autograph, and I was pre-
pared to do the same until circumstance found us joining him for lunch (or Aldrin
joining us?) in the ward room just below the hangar bay. So there I was, elbow to elbow
with the second man to walk on the moon, kidding around, getting him to sign my
copy of his book and having no trouble getting him to accept a copy of my book,
"Splashdown, NASA & The Navy," which made its debut at that reunion five years
before.
Then I produced a very good-looking blue silk NASA tie, which he had never seen

before, and asked if he
would like to have it. He
graciously accepted. In
the picture of the two of
us shaking hands (with
an unidentified guest in
between us) you can
clearly see the tie in
Aldrin's left hand while I
am tightly holding to a
bundle of stuff, includ-
ing the book that he
had just autographed for
me.
Earlier, I had hosted a
press conference a few
rooms away from where
this photo was taken. It
included Aldrin; Bruce
Johnson, pilot of the
famed Helicopter 66 that
brought Aldrin, Arm-
strong and Collins back
to the Hornet after their
splashdown; Dr. (still in
practice) Bill Carpentier,
who was one of the two
NASA personnel to join
the space trio during


quarantine; and Clancy
Hatleberg, one-time
NASA swimmer who led
the swim teams on
Apollo 11 and whose job
it was to toss in those
isolation garments to the
astronauts while he put
one on himself, all in the
name of safety from pos-
sible moon germs.
(That fear was put to
rest after only two more
lunar missions.)
Old friends would
approach me during our
three days on the Hornet
and say they had won-
dered if we would be
attending this celebra-
tion. How little they
knew?
You couldn't have
kept me away.

we're still kicking five
years from now.
By then an arduous
effort to get the Hornet
moved to a more tourist-
attractive site closer to
San Francisco may have
bore fruit.
I certainly hope so,
and if it happens within
two years as the group
fighting for that reposi-

Mrs. Blair and I will be

STIFF OR PAINFUL NECK


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
If you suffer from recurring
aches, pains, or stiffness in the neck that
last more than 24 hours, you should have
your neck examined and treated. When you
have a persistent pain in the neck area, it
may be caused by nerve irritations or
pinched nerves. It may also be the
symptom of early stages of joint or disc
degeneration. The neck or cervical area of
the spine contains the upper portion of the
spinal cord and eight pairs of spinal nerves.


These nerves are connected to almost
every part of your body. Misalignments in
the cervical area cannot only cause pain
and discomfort in the neck but in other
parts of the body as well.
Because of constant movement,
the neck is very susceptible to stress and
strains, especially if some vertebrae are out
of alignment. Through gentle manipulation
and other therapies your doctor
chiropractic can correct the misalignments
and bring welcome relief from pain and
discomfort.

FINE WHINES

Letters ... we get letters


N Ix S4-ck. IS f *PS


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


The column that appeared last week
explaining the parts of our opinion
pages seems to have gone over well, so
I thought I'd strike while the press is hot
and talk about one of those parts in a
bit more detail.
We get lots of letters from our read-
ers. Our hope is to print all of them. So,
why don't we?
First, not every letter is suitable for
publication. We're not going to run any-
thing that will get us sued or that wasn't
written specifically to us as a letter to
the editor no form letters, open let-
ters or letters that were sent to every
newspaper this side of Mars, please.
We also don't want letters praising or
complaining about a business' prod-
ucts or service. It's too easy for either of
those to be faked. We accept, with a
time limit before an election, letters
about political candidates but closely
review them for basically the same rea-
son.
Second, we only publish twice a
week. We've redesigned the opinion
pages a bit to give us more flexibility
with the number of letters we print in
each edition, but the space is still limit-
ed. Occasionally, that can mean that a
letter gets left out because it's no longer
timely.
Sometimes when we have a bunch
of letters all taking essentially the same
position on an issue we'll leave the last
one or two of those out, too, in order to
print ones on other topics. And we gen-
erally limit each letter writer to one let-


ter every 30 days, to give other people a
chance. We might bend that rule when
a letter draws a response that deserves
a rebuttal.
Publishing only twice a week also
means there will be a bit of a delay
between the submission of your letter
and its appearance in print. Other
things can slow it down even more.
If you mail your letter, there's the
time it takes for the post office to deliv-
er it and and for someone here to type
it into our server. E-mailed letters can
be cut and pasted in immediately.
You can also speed the process by
ensuring that your letter simply and
clearly expresses your thoughts in 250
words or less, and includes your full
name, city and phone number. A longer
letter might be considered for a guest
column, but we only run two or three of
those a week compared to 10-15 letters.
If it's rejected as a guest column, it
won't be rejected as a letter but it will
get hung up to be edited for length.
That's not hard if it's only a matter of 10
or 15 words too many, but it's a chore if
it's hundreds. I'd prefer that you choose
your most important 250 words than
have to guess at them myself.
Understand, though, that a 250-
word, beautifully written letter is still
going to get edited meaning checked
for grammar, spelling and newspaper
style. Don't feel insulted I do that
with pieces from our publisher and our
president, too.
Did I leave something out? E-mail
me and I'll address it in a future col-
umn.

Four open house-style meetings are scheduled, all from 4:30-6 p.m.
All interested parties are welcome to attend anytime during any of the
meetings to review all the route and schedule changes and ask questions.
Among the highlights:
* Route 16 (Englewood): Route 16 will be redesigned to be more direct between
Venice and Englewood, and will operate every hour.
* Route 21 (Englewood Loop): Route 21 will be discontinued, removing service from
the Englewood Sports Complex. But Route 16 will be extended to cover the portions
along Dearborn Street east, Pine Street and Medical Boulevard to the Englewood
Community Hospital.
* Route 26 (Venice Connector): Venice area neighborhoods along Center Road,
Shamrock Boulevard and Alligator Drive served by the current Route 16 will have the
new Route 26, which will operate every 90 minutes and include a stop for the Senior
Friendship Center.
* Route 24 (Scenic-Woodmere) and Route 25 (Bird Bay): SCAT will discontinue
Routes 24 and 25, removing service from Bird Bay and from Santa Maria Street on
Venice island. Affected areas will be served by other routes. Eligible riders in
neighborhoods that are not directly covered by other routes are encouraged to use the
new SCAT Senior to Shopping Services offered by THE RIDE.
* Route 19 (North Port via U.S. 41): Route 19 will be discontinued since the
redesigned Route 16 will serve U.S. 41 north of Jacaranda Boulevard and portions of U.S
41 Business on the Venice island and because the new Route 26 will cover the U.S. 41
By-Pass. Riders from North Port will need to transfer to Route 26 and to Route 16 if
their destination is along U.S. 41 in Venice.
* Route 9 (North Port via Jacaranda Boulevard): Route 9 will operate every hour
between North Port and the Venice Train Depot SCAT Transfer Station.
* Route 9S (North Port-South Venice): North Port will get Sunday service for the
first time on the new Route 9S that will connect at the Jacaranda Boulevard Wal-Mart
hourly to Route 1713 and travel directly on U.S. 41 to Sumter Boulevard.
* Route 1713 (Trail-South Venice) and Route 1411 (Lake Sarasota-Siesta Key):
On Sunday, Routes 1713 and 1411 will operate every hour from 9 a.m.-7 p.m., and then
every two hours in the evening.
* Route 99 (Palmetto Fairgrounds to downtown Sarasota): Route 99 will receive
evening service for the first time, as far as the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport,
hourly until 10 p.m. Monday-Saturday. The first partial round trip from the airport at
5:30 a.m. will be eliminated, but passengers at that time may use the Route 2
(Cocoanut Avenue).
* Route 15 (Cattlemen): Saturday service will be restored to every 60 minutes. On
Monday-Saturday, the last trip of the day will be a full trip to the airport.
* Route 17 (Trail): The 6:44 a.m. inbound trip, and the 9:15 p.m. outbound trip, will
extend to Venice Monday-Saturday.
* Route IA, 2, 5, 6, 12, 14, 15, 20, 29, 1713 and 8517: Minor schedule adjustments
will be made to improve on-time performance.

Heaven's door is


open


on Jewish New Year


FROM THE CHABAD
JEWISH CENTER


Just a few weeks before Rosh
Hashanah, the Jewish New
Year and one of the holiest
days on the Jewish calendar,
there are still many Jews who
have no plans to attend syna-
gogue services.
Some of these Jews are not
affiliated with a synagogue;
others will be traveling on
business; and a sizable per-
centage simply don't feel com-
fortable in a synagogue setting.
Another alarming issue, partic-
ularly in light of today's flailing
economy, is that many cannot
afford the cost of services,
which these days can run a
whopping $1,000 or more for a
family of five.
Whatever the case is, many
of these would-be worshippers
are feeling the pangs associat-
ed with being left out of the
holiest days of the Jewish cal-
endar. The local branch of the
largest Jewish outreach organi-
zation in the world, has pre-
sented its own High Holiday
services option, providing free
Rosh Hashanah and Yom
Kippur services in a warm and
inclusive setting.
Chabad's services are user-
friendly, making them enjoy-
able and meaningful for
both the beginner and the
advanced. Song, commentary
and the use of English-Hebrew
prayer books enable those of
all levels to become active par-
ticipants in the services.
'According to Jewish tradi-
tion, on the Jewish New Year,
the doors of Heaven are open.
God accepts prayers from
everyone," said Rabbi Sholom
Schmerling, who is hosting
free services in Venice. "The


least we can do is open our
doors as well, to the entire
community.
"The Lubavitcher Rebbe, of
righteous memory, insisted
that Judaism is accessible to all
Jews. During the Jewish High
Holidays, acces-
sibility can trans-
late into different
factors for differ-
ent people, such
as a nonjudg-
mental atmos-
phere, affordabil-
ity of the services,
Schmerling or the ability for a
beginner to fol-
low along. Our goal is to lower
the barriers of entry and
encourage each and every Jew
to actively participate in these
most holy and introspective
days."
Rosh Hashanah begins this
year after sundown on Sept. 18
and extends until nightfall on
Sept. 20. Yom Kippur begins
this year after sundown on the
eve of Sept. 27 and extends
until nightfall on Sept. 28.
Celebrate the Jewish New
Year with a gourmet four-course
dinner on Rosh Hashanah eve.
Apple and honey and other tra-
ditional holiday foods will be
served along with song and
words of inspiration.
The Rosh Hashana dinner
will be at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 18
at The Chabad Jewish Center,
2169 South Tamiami Trail. Yom
Kippur Service will be held
Sept. 27-28 at The Best Western
Hotel in Venice.
To reserve a space, register
online at www.chabadof
venice.com or call 493-2770.

Roberts is the rector of The
Episcopal Church of the Good
Shepherd in Venice.

WASHINGTON Rates
for 30-year home loans
edged up this week, but
remain close to record
lows reached over the
spring.
The average rate for a
30-year fixed mortgage
was 5.14 percent, up from
5.12 percent a week
earlier, mortgage compa-
ny Freddie Mac said
Thursday. Rates, while
above the record low of
4.78 percent hit in the
spring, are still at attrac-
tive levels for people
looking to buy a home or
refinance.
"Long-term mortgage
rates were barely changed
this week, remaining
historically low, which is
helping to sustain a high
level of affordability in
the home-purchase
market," Frank Nothaft,
Freddie Mac's chief
economist, said in a
statement.

backed securities, which
has driven down rates on
home loans. It has also

Now that the economy
is on the mend, Fed
policymakers must
decide how and when to
withdraw that support.
Some analysts think it
could take four or five
years for the Fed to pull
back entirely and shrink a
balance sheet that is now
about $2 trillion, more
than double what it was
when the financial crisis
struck.
Despite government
efforts to prop up the

tightened their standards
dramatically over the past
year, so the best rates are
available to those with
solid credit.
Freddie Mac collects
mortgage rates on
Monday through Wednes-
day of each week from
lenders around the
country. Rates often

I know that you all
know exactly what you
were doing when you
heard about the planes
crashing into the twin
towers, the field in
Pennsylvania and into
the Pentagon building.
Just like we remember
where we were when
President John E.
Kennedy was shot in
Dallas. Those things
that happen in our
lives that burn a hole
in our heart.


Why do you

love living

A day that we will


never

Remember all of the
flags that were flown
after 9/11. Every house,
car, business, bridges,
light poles in town, had
a flag waving proudly.
Where are these flags
now? Many we saw on
the roadways that had
fallen from the window
attachments but we
don't see them any-
more, do we?
WHY NOT? Why
don't we celebrate all
that our flag represents
all year long and not
just on days dedicated
to do it?
Do you know what
the red in the flag
stands for? Do you
know what the blue
stands for? How about
the white? I know you
know that the stars
represent our 50 states.


forget

The Red symbolizes-
Hardiness and Value.
The Blue represents
Vigilance, Perseverance
and Justice and the
White symbolizes
Purity and Innocence.
The flag is a wonder-
ful symbol of what our
ancestors and our
service men and
women have sacrificed
for the freedoms that
we have today.
Let's appreciate what
we have. Let's thank
the military when we
see them by a Smile, a
Hug or a Handshake.
We are so blessed living
in the United States of
America. I know that
we sometimes forget
the fact that we have
the privilege of so
many freedoms which
others throughout the


- 9/11

world don't have. It
seems as though those
being sworn in with
this new honor of
citizenship, know more
about our history and
what it has taken to
obtain our freedom,
than those that have
never known any
difference than their
daily abilities to choose
what they can do.
PLEASE LET'S ALL
FLY OUR FLAGS ON
9/11.
Let us never forget
what we have and show
appreciation to those
that have sacrificed for
this.
I'm proud to be an
American. It truly is
the "Home of the Free-
Because of the Brave"
THINK POSITIVE.
Remember.

Excalibur: the car, not the sword


What do you do if
you're an
automotive
hobby writer who, only a
week ago, wrote about
one of the slowest full-
sized vehicles in modern
times?
The answer is a no-
brainer: simply feature
the opposite, one of the
fastest or, should I say,
quickest "boy toys" that
can be driven legally on
Florida roads.
By quickest, I mean
like from a dead stop up
to the top speed limit of
70 mph, which is the
maximum here in the
Sunshine State. I'm not
talking late-model cars,
but one 34 years old, so
the following should be
interesting.
That vehicle is a 1975
Excalibur Phaeton,
factory built in
Milwaukee, Wis., by a
small, family-owned auto
manufacturer. The
designer, Brooks Stevens,
an already renowned
gentleman who had
designed many things
both inside and outside
the motoring industry,
decided in 1965 to
produce a reproduction
version of the famous
1929 Mercedes Benz SSK
Roadster. Said cars often
were raced throughout
Europe with great
success, usually backed
by Mercedes directly or
with their support for
wealthy playboy types
out to make a name for
themselves.
Excalibur is a name
many know well, espe-
cially English history
buffs and those who read
the comic strip Prince
Valiant in the Sunday
papers. The sword is said
to have some sort of
magic in it when carried
into battle by King
Arthur. The car itself
seemed to have some of
its own magic when it
was first exhibited at
National New Car Shows
in major cities, because
of the large number of
orders placed by very
interested attendees.
When the actual cars
were delivered and on
the road, notables such
as movie stars and
athletes became owners
and often had photos
taken next to their four-
wheel gems. They were
priced three to five times
that of most regular
upper-class American
autos.
Series III, of which this
is one, was more
powerful than the early
versions that were built
on Studebaker Lark
Daytona convertible
chassis. They were


'You Auto
Know'

intended to be an image
sports-type car, however,
financial problems of
that company stopped
all such projects. Brooks
Stevens decided to go it
alone and refined the
ride, steering and
handling, plus added a
"hotter" engine and a
heavy-duty drive train.
Later ones were
delivered with every
imaginable accessory,
the best available at that
time including a drop-
dead AM/FM stereo
sound system. All
featured box frames with
X cross members, heavy
duty suspension, brakes,
Positraction, Turbo-
hydromatic transmission
and GM engines of
various horsepower.
This one started out
with a Corvette 350-
cubic-inch L+1 370-
power engine to which
the owner, Paul DiMaria,
had aVortech super-
charger installed and
modified to run with a
custom water-alcohol
injection system. Results:
about 425 horsepower
and, get this, 341 horse-
power at the rear wheels
proved when tested
several times on a
dynamometer. With its
relatively light weight
(built of all fiberglass),
short wheel base of 112
inches, and only 175
inches overall length,
this baby goes like a
slingshot. I know from
personal experience of
being slammed back in
the passenger seat, like
that of the 435 big block
'Vettes and 426 Hemi-
head small-bodied
Chrysler products.
Paul's model, a limited
edition, is one of the last
true Phaetons, using side
curtains for windows; a
little crude and they are
known to leak. That
doesn't bother him one
bit as this piece of
transportation has been
a dream for years and
that neck-snapping
performance brings a
wide smile while
motoring along listening
to tapes playing patriotic
music. Lee Greenwood
would be proud to know
him.
Paul, 70, lived in the
Long Island area for 60
years. As he put it, "I was
doing anything I could to
have my own money." He
went on to become a
very successful painting

SUN PHOTOS BY LEE ROYSTON


contractor until moving
to Florida during 1999.
This man designed and
built a fantastic home
near the beach area of
Port Charlotte, complete
with every bell and
whistle plus fancy
garages. He and his wife
Carmen have been
married 49 years and still
act like honeymooners.
This couple spends the
coolest six weeks of
winter in St. Thomas,
plus they travel a lot,
which keeps them busy.
They have two married
sons, one in California
with four children. The
other resides in Cape
Coral with two kids.
Excalibur is out of
business after being in
bankruptcy three
different times over the
years, but the legacy lives
on enough so that when
a good one comes up for
sale, it's quickly snapped
up by an eager buyer.
Watch for this fellow at
vintage car events, and
feel free to speak to him
about his four-wheel
love!
