Sunshine Law already a campaign issue


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


It didn't take long for the
campaign fireworks to begin.
At the first city council cam-
paign debate, on Wednesday,
sponsored by the Republican
Club of South Sarasota County,
HarryWalia charged his oppo-
nent, Jim Bennett, with im-
proper conduct over an e-mail
stemming from the Sunshine
lawsuit.
Both are running for Seat
No. 4 in the city's nonpartisan
election.

Bennett e-mailed a council
member in 2008 offering to act
as an intermediary, an activity
that's strictly prohibited by
public officials under the Flor-
ida Open Government in the


Bennett


Walia


Sunshine Law.
But the e-mail was sent in
February 2008, before Bennett
was appointed on June 24,
2008, by Mayor Ed Martin to
the planning commission.


It states in part: "I am also
aware of how strictly the sun-
shine law is being interpreted
these days. In that sense, I
could be an intermediary:
Would you like me to ask Ed
(Martin) if I should express in-
terest in Environmental (task
force appointment) instead of
Economic Development (task
force)? In CT (Connecticut) I
was aware of the quorum rule
- we could always talk with
each other together so long as
we didn't constitute a quo-
rum."
The e-mail came to light in

City gives FAA report mixed response


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

The city of Venice is promis-
ing to take a number of critical
steps to bring the Venice Mu-
nicipal Airport back into the
good graces of the Federal
Aviation Administration.
But the FAA will have to wait
on the two most controversial
issues impacts on the Lake


Venice Golf Club boundary
and re-evaluating proceeds
from a restaurant lease that is
split between the city and air-
port fund until the city com-
pletes its airport master plan
update. The master plan is not
expected to be presented to
council before January 2010.
The city will reappraise
three parcels occupied by
Sharky's On The Pier Restau-


rant and the Venice Fishing
Pier, then re-evaluate the dis-
tribution of payments to the
Airport Enterprise Fund and
the Pier Fund, wrote City
Manager Isaac Turner in the
city's Sept. 4 response.
Also, the city agreed a 2-acre
parcel on which the Senior
Friendship Centers is located
will need to come under lease
and reflect fair market rates.


The city also agreed to the
following:
Conducting the necessary
land surveys to delineate the
proper airfield and noncon-
tiguous nonaeronautical par-
cels.
Asking the FAA to approve
current nonaviation leases for
the Holiday Apartments,

the Sunshine lawsuit filed
against the city in May 2008.
"He's not even elected and
he has already broken the law,"
Walia said.
Bennett wanted to respond,
but by previous agreement
Walia had the last word and
club officials, sticklers at fol-
lowing predetermined debate
rules, wouldn't allow him an-
swer the question and ended
the meeting.
Later, he said Walia took his
e-mail out of context.
Bennett said he was not
offering to act as an intermedi-
ary. The mere act of approach-
ing Martin after having already
spoken to Venice City Council
Member Sue Lang, he said,
could be interpreted that way.
"I could be looked as an
intermediary and I am not
supposed to be an intermedi-
ary," Bennett said. "I don't want
to do that. There is a lot of
word-playing going on."
The Sunshine Law, he said,
is "being interpreted so crazily
that probably you can do any-
thing. It's like having brakes
but no pads. It makes a lot of
noise but it's not good in an
emergency."
Walia made no apologies for
raising the issue.
"He's a risk of doing it
again," Walia said later. "He
wants a new interpretation of
the law. If he doesn't agree with
it, we are prone to new law-
suits."
A gag
Earlier during the forum
Bennett said the need for addi-
tional interpretation of the
city's e-mail policy is one of his
top two issues he'd like to
address.
"Now it's used as a gag. You
shouldn't gag public officials,"
Bennett said.
He also wants to beef up the
city's public officials liability
insurance plan.
On Tuesday, Bennett was in
the audience when council
members learned they really
don't have liability insurance
coverage of $1 million per
occurrence for public officials,
as many thought, but actually
have an aggregate cap of $1
million in coverage. Council is
looking at increasing the cov-
erage.
Walia said a better way to
address Sunshine-related is-

South Venice

postal site on

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

It appears South Venice
won't be getting a much-
sought-after post office after
all.
The debt-ridden U.S. Postal
Service, which put hundreds of
offices on the chopping block,
recently put a "For sale" sign on
property it owns on the west
side of Jacaranda Boulevard
south of U.S. 41 behind the

Which bike's for you?

BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER

So you're interested in taking up bicy-
cling, or are considering another bicycle
that may better suit your riding style. But
what model suits you best? Let's briefly dis-
cuss the four most popular models available
at local bike shops.
The road bike is primarily designed for
the more serious rider. With those skinny
tires, lightweight frame and funny-looking
handlebars, this type of bike should be left
to the cyclist who sacrifices comfort for
speed.
A good all-around bike that provides
comfort, durability and ease of handling is
the hybrid. Designed for the casual cyclist,
the bike comes with a variety of handlebar
styles, a larger seat and medium-width tires
- all designed to provide a compromise
between the road bike and the next bike we
will discuss: the mountain bike.
The mountain bike is primarily designed
for use on dirt trails, but can be used as a
street bike as well. The handlebars are usu-
ally straight; the seat design will vary
depending on the manufacturer but usually
will resemble the hybrid-bike seat. The tires
are knobby and wide.
The cruiser is the ultimate in comfortable
riding. With fat tires similar to the mountain
bike, but without the knobs, the cruiser is
usually equipped with a large, soft seat,
again designed for comfort. Most cruisers
do not have gears and are heavier, but who
cares we live in flat Florida.
Ride safe, ride smart.

Help fight space invaders in Sarasota County


FROM SARASOTA COUNTY
COMMUNICATIONS

Sarasota County is seeking
volunteers to help celebrate the
16th annual National Public
Lands Day by improving habitat
and trails at Deer Prairie Creek
Preserve, 7001 Forbes Trail,
Venice.
From 8:30 a.m. to noon,
Saturday, Sept. 26, staff from
Sarasota County Natural Re-
sources will guide volunteers in
the removal of invasive plants
and trail improvements.
"Exotic plants have a tendency
to encroach on and take over
native habitats," said Public Use
Coordinator Brie Ondercin. "Some
invasive plant species like Brazilian
pepper are toxic and harmful for


other plants, animals and even
humans. Removing them keeps
them from spreading farther
throughout the county's natural
areas and into people's back
yards, and this is the perfect
opportunity to highlight the
problem and recruit volunteers
to help restore natural areas.
"Trimming and cleaning up
the trails allows visitors to better
explore our public lands. This
particular volunteer event is a
fun way to introduce families to
nature while improving the trails
that visitors hike."
National Public Lands Day is
the nation's largest hands-on vol-
unteer effort to improve and
enhance America's public lands.
Sept. 26 marks the fourth year
that Sarasota will participate in


the annual event, which is a pro-
gram of the National Environ-
mental Education and Training
Foundation.
All volunteers will receive gar-
dening gloves and water. Port-
able restrooms will be on site.
Participants must provide their
own hand tools, such as clippers
and shears, and should also
bring water, bug spray, sun-
screen, hat (optional) and sun-
glasses.
Volunteers should wear closed-
toe, closed-heel shoes, such as
hiking boots or old sneakers that
may get wet and comfortable
clothing suitable for outdoor
work.
For information on how to
register, call 861-5000 and ask for
Natural Resources.

West Villages district keeping an eye on tax roll


BY ED SCOTT
STAFF WRITER


There were more lawyers
than engineers at a recent
meeting of the West Villages
Improvement District.
The district board of super-
visors and its staff met at State
College of Florida Tuesday to
decide how to proceed now
that developer Sam Rodgers
has failed to pay the district
more than $3 million in taxes
on 12 undeveloped parcels
within Gran Paradiso.
The upscale community,
located across U.S. 41 from
Islandwalk on the west end of
North Port, was planned for
1,999 homes but fell victim to
the downturn in the economy.
Rodgers could not be
reached for comment. Only
four Rodgers homes have been
sold in Gran Paradiso, he said
in May. All were under con-
struction at that time. Lee
Wetherington Homes also had
one under construction and
had sold four or five other


homes, Rodgers said in May.
In August, district board
members adopted a budget for
the next fiscal year, which
begins Oct. 1. The Tuesday
meeting was held because no
one purchased 12 of the 17 tax
certificates offered by Sarasota
County Tax Collector Barbara
Ford-Coates in August. (Those
remain held by the county and
can be purchased.)
'A bunch of lawyers" were in
attendance, District Manager
Todd Wodraska of Special
District Services in West Palm
Beach said Wednesday.
'After a lot of discussion,
and attorneys speaking, we
decided to leave everything on
the tax roll," he said.
Wodraska says the district
will continue to assess non-ad
valorem fees on the properties
in 2009-10 and will attempt
to collect them via the tax col-
lector and it will continue to
hope someone purchases the
tax certificates from the tax
collector. If they are pur-
chased, Rodgers will have until


April 2011 to pay back the pur-
chaser, plus 18 percent inter-
est, to settle the tax issue, or
risk losing his property.
However, "if we get to the
scenario where we don't have
money from the tax bill and
we've run out of the debt ser-
vice reserve account (possibly
in May of 2010), then we may
need to remove the assess-
ments from the tax bill and try
to collect the money via direct
billing," Wodraska said. "If they
don't pay the bills through
direct billing, there could be a
foreclosure action on the prop-
erty."
Finances
The five-member WVID
board, elected by land owners,
makes decisions about which
infrastructure projects to begin
in the 8,100-acre community
formerly known as Taylor
Ranch. It also monitors the
work done by local companies,
such as Hazeltine Nurseries of
Venice and Construction
Technology Group of Plant


City, with the help of Wodraska
of SDS, attorney Kenneth
Edwards of the West Palm
Beach-based Caldwell Pacetti
law firm and Kimley-Horn, the
district engineer, a large,
national consulting firm with
local offices.
Gran Paradiso encompasses
one of three "units of develop-
ment" established for account-
ing purposes by the board,
which typically meets once a
month at SCE Each unit in
WVID, a special district estab-
lished by the Florida Legislature
in 2004, is financed by bonds.
Gran Paradiso is one of two
major developments in the
West Villages. Islandwalk is the
other. Board members secured
bonds totaling approximately
$100.5 million in recent years.
Approximately $62.5 million
has been spent thus far on
infrastructure, from landscap-
ing to roads, and water and
sewer.
The Unit 1 account, consist-
ing of all 8,100 acres, started
with $30 million and now has


$20 million. Unit 2, consisting
of Gran Paradiso, Islandwalk
and the town center, started
with $34 million and now has
$9.5 million. Unit 3 (Gran
Paradiso only) started with
$36.5 million and now has $8.5
million.
Like many others in South-
west Florida, WVID landown-
ers, district officials and board
members were caught off
guard by the downturn in the
economy. So they have
attempted to move the massive
project forward incrementally.
Wodraska says the board
already tapped into its reserve
account to make a $1.6 million
debt payment in May 2009 for
Unit 3. Another Unit 3 debt pay-
ment of $1.1 million is due in
November. The other units are
on sounder financial footing.
If nothing changes with the
status of uncollected Gran
Paradiso taxes, "we'll have to
use that reserve again as well,"
Wodraska said.

Survey shows residents still high on life in county


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER


Residents overwhelmingly think
their quality of life in Sarasota County is
"good" or "excellent," according to the
county's 18th annual Citizen Opinion
Survey.
For the first time since 2006, when
the question regarding quality of life
was first asked, residents who said it is
"excellent" (46 percent) surpassed
those who said it is "good" (43 percent).
Susan A. MacManus of the
University of South Florida presented a
summary of the results to county com-
missioners during their meeting
Wednesday at the Sarasota County
Administration Center. MacManus, the
project director, has worked on the sur-
vey since 1998.
The focus for this year's survey,
which was conducted in June, dealt
heavily with economic issues, such as
prioritizing services, finding funding
sources and levels, how to keep busi-


nesses and jobs in-county, and what
type of budget decisions should be
made. It also asked questions about an
individual's own financial stresses.
MacManus told commissioners the
issue of jobs, especially "good-paying
jobs," is "so dominant" in the survey.
Jobs ranked 10 on a 10-point scale.
She said that in the last two years,
the economy/jobs has led residents'
concerns. As a result, 86 percent of
respondents say they would support a
temporary property tax break if it

County extends protection of trees


BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

Seeking to protect the
next generation of trees
in the county, Sarasota
County commissioners
voted 5-0 Wednesday for
a trio of recommenda-
tions by county staff.
Commissioners autho-
rized the advertising of a
Nov. 10 public hearing on
an amendment adding
"baby grand trees" to the
county's tree protection
ordinance. The new clas-
sification would protect
large, mature native trees
that do not qualify as
"grand trees" now but
might in the future.
Commissioners agreed
to consider consolidating
the Tree Protection, Street
Tree Protection and Can-
opy Tree ordinances. The
consolidation, county
staff said, would enable
consistent goals and poli-
cies to be set.
They voted unani-
mously to extend the
sunset date of the street
tree ordinance from Sept.
11,2009, to Sept. 11,2010.
The new sunset date is to
coincide with the tree
protection consolidation.
Grand trees in the
county are determined
by a points system calcu-
lated using the tree's
diameter, height and
spread of its limbs. The
minimum number of
points needed for the
designation range from
80 for a sand live oak to


100 for a live oak.
There are 13 species
that may be considered
for grand tree designa-
tion. For more informa-
tion, visit www.scgov.net
and view the "resource
protection" page.
Mitigation
The "baby grand" des-
ignation is the result of a
collaboration between
county staff and the
Sarasota Tree Advisory
Council. Like grand trees,
there are 13 trees pro-
posed for inclusion in the
"baby grand" category.
To be considered, baby
grands must have an 18-
inch diameter at 54 inch-
es of height, also called
"breast height" or DBH,
and a 70 percent or greater
condition classification.
Essentially, that condition
classification indicates the
tree is healthy, according
to Matt Osterhoudt, the
county resource protec-
tion manager.
The "baby grand"
amendment requires a
tree permit for any prop-
erty (including single-
family properties) from
which a baby grand is to
be removed. The removal
would come under specif-
ic circumstances, includ-
ing safety concerns.
For property owners,
removal of a baby grand
means replacement trees
have to be planted on the
property that would equal
one tree for each 2,000
square feet of property

polls, was tied into immigration bias.
"There is still a small proportion
who look at recipients less positively,"
she said.
Additionally, support for cutting
libraries (4 percent) or law enforcement
(3 percent) first is less than in previous
years. Along with social programs ser-
vices, there is more support for cutting
transit/bus services.
Residents split on funding for a new
jail, according to the survey. Residents
were asked if they would be willing to
pay more in property taxes for a limited
time to fund a new jail. While 35 per-
cent say yes, 49 percent are "adamantly
opposed." Another 12 percent say they
would support it "if the economy turns
around."


Of the 800 respondents to the survey,
a majority are year-round residents
who have lived in Sarasota County for
more than 10 years. More than half live
in unincorporated areas.
Among those residing in a munici-
pality, North Port had 22 percent of the
respondents, while Venice had 24 per-
cent, and Sarasota 53 percent.
Most are white (91 percent), while
blacks are 5 percent and Hispanics 2
percent. The Hispanic population is
underrepresented, according to Mac-
Manus, because they make up a large
percentage of the construction and
service industries, both of which have
been hurt markedly by the economy.

Derby if you were inter-
ested. Soula met her
husband, William (Bill)
Chadwell, a native of
Stanford, at UK in 1953
and they were married in
1955. After his gradua-

Beware bogus IRS e-mail
According to the Internal
Revenue Service, a mass e-
mail has been sent nationwide
telling individuals they might
owe money to the IRS. How-
ever, it is a bogus e-mail creat-
ed to try to get personal infor-
mation from people.
The scheme is an attention
grabber because it has the let-
ters "IRS" in it.
Snopes.com reported that
the mass e-mailing spammed
Internet users with phony no-
tices that warned them they
might be targets of IRS fraud
investigations due to having
unreported or underreported
income and invited them to
click on a link to review their
"tax statements" on the IRS
Web site. The provided link led

carrier of some form of mal-

IRS officials said the agency
"never sends out unsolicited e-
mails to taxpayers." The IRS
only sends notices through the
U.S. mail, and every such no-
tice includes a telephone
number that the recipient can
call for confirmation.
The IRS will not ask for de-
tailed personal information via
e-mail or ask taxpayers for
passwords or PIN numbers,
bank information or other
financial accounts.

retired from AET in 1996
and continued consult-
ing until 2000.

OPINION


GONDOLIER SUN EDITOR

OUR VIEW



Put an end to uncivil liberties


T he chairs of the county Demo-
cratic and Republican parties
have a novel and radical sugges-
tion for their members participating
in local debates about health-care
reform: Act like grown-ups.
To be more specific, Rita Ferran-
dino (Democrats) and Joe Gruters
(Republicans) have issued a "joint call
for respect and civility" urging the
members of both parties to "remain
respectful and engage in meaningful
civil discourse with open minds, tol-
erance and kindness toward each
other for differing points of view."
Our prediction? This well-inten-
tioned and important plea will largely
fall on deaf ears.
We can't recall an issue since the
Vietnam War that has had so many
people across the country literally up
in arms carrying guns to what sup-
posedly are meetings to debate the
pros and cons of health-care reform
proposals, even to appearances by
the president. That, to be blunt, is
nuts. It's just a matter of time before


something really ugly happens if we
don't all take several deep breaths.
This is not a call to end debate but
rather for real debate, which, as Fer-
randino and Gruters note, is the "cor-
nerstone of our democracy."
We'd be willing to bet that almost
no one members of Congress
included- has read all 1,017 pages of
the House bill on health-care reform.
That means virtually everyone is get-
ting their information about it sec-
ondhand, from a source that may or
may not have read it and that like-
ly has an agenda.
Thus, instead of open discussions
about how to improve our health- care
system, we are bombarded by rhet-
oric about "death panels" and "gov-
ernment-funded abortions," spouted
by commentators who know those
things aren't in the bills and parroted
by people who don't question what
they hear.
When Medicare recipients are say-
ing they don't want the government
providing health-care insurance, it's


time to check our collective grip on
reality.
Unfortunately, political debate has
devolved to the exchange of sound
bites among true believers who are
unwilling to acknowledge even the
possibility that the other side might
occasionally have a valid point. And
we wonder why the ship of state
keeps heading toward the rocks.
Ferrandino and Gruters deserve a
pat on the back for urging their mem-
bers to keep cool heads. We echo their
call for sanity and offer a few ideas for
achieving it:
Get educated. Read about health-
care reform from a variety of sources,
including some you usually don't
agree with. Other people's ideas can't
hurt you, and the more information
you have, the more you'll know about
what's really on the table and what's at
stake.
Keep an open mind. No person or
party has a monopoly on wisdom,
and no idea should be rejected out of
hand because it's "socialism," imper-


fect or just not the way we currently
do things. Unless you think our exist-
ing health-care system is perfect, you
have to admit there's at least some
room for improvement.
Listen if you expect to be listened
to. Health-care reform is an issue
people are passionate about, and
that's good to the extent they channel
their passion into constructive efforts.
To the extent it motivates them to
carry guns to meetings and engage in
spittle-spraying tantrums it's not just
bad, it's harmful, if not dangerous.
Somewhere on the spectrum from
a complete overhaul to doing nothing
is the best plan for our health-care
system today. How are we going to
agree on what to do if we can't even
talk to each other like civilized human
beings?
PS. to Ferrandino and Gruters: If
your plea works, and if you can get
your candidates and their support-
ers to avoid any mud-slinging in
the upcoming election, you deserve
the Nobel Peace Prize.


Morals and myths


WE WfI4. WEVER FOR6ET


MARY KAY RUPPEL
COLUMNIST


While watching Sen. Ted
Kennedy's elaborate funeral, I
was deeply moved by the eulo-
gies of his sons, Teddy Jr. and
Patrick. They were so touching
and showed that the senator
was a loving, caring and
involved father.
Being a believer in the fact
that there is no such thing as
an original thought, I have to
feel that many other folks
brought up in the Catholic
faith were as puzzled as I was
by his funeral in the Catholic
Church. So, I checked it out.
Catholics are raised to be-
lieve that once they have been
married in the church, there is
no divorce; however annul-
ments are approved under
very rare conditions.
In 1958, Ted Kennedy and
Joan Bennett were married in a
large church ceremony. They
had three children together,
and divorced in 1982. Joan
Kennedy, suffering severe
bouts of alcoholism in the en-
suing years, has never remar-
ried. Ted married Vicki Reggie,
also a divorced Catholic with
two children, in a private cere-
mony in his home in 1992.
The answer to my question
was found in a biography of
Ted Kennedy written by Ed-
ward Klein titled, "The Dream
that Never Died." He wrote
that Ted was unhappy with the
condition of being "excommu-
nicated" from the Catholic
Church by his second mar-
riage, and was actually denied
communion by a priest at one
time. So, Ted went through the


process of having his first mar-
riage declared null and void,
which required the written
permission of Joan.
According to Klein, the
grounds were that Ted said he
was "dishonest" when he mar-
ried Joan and that "he never
intended to be faithful." Wow!
I know quite a few Catholics
who have gotten annulments
under the same types of cir-
cumstances. What I am not
happy with is the disingenuous-
ness of the Catholic Church in
allowing these sorts of annul-
ments so that folks can remar-
ry and remain faithful mem-
bers of the church. Maybe
what the church needs to do is
loosen up its restrictions, do
granting annulments in the
first place instead of the sec-
ond place.
Perhaps the reason I am
sensitive on this subject is that
in my youth my mother had a
dear friend who was a "di-
vorcee." My mother told me
that her husband had been a
severe alcoholic. However, this
woman was condemned to
single life because she di-
vorced him. I didn't under-
stand or like that then, and I
still don't.
This information is not
meant as an indictment
against the late senator. Nor it
is an indictment of the Cath-
olic Church, which remains
my religion of choice. I have
not excommunicated myself.
As H.L. Mencken said, "The-
ologians themselves dispose of
the matter (of faith) by calling
everything they do an act of
religion, including such opera-
tions as bedizening them-
selves with high-sounding
titles and dignities, superior to
any ever claimed by Christ."
When one's faith becomes a
chore and not a comfort,
things need to be adjusted.

Take a little off the top

Overboard. After attending the council budget meeting and
looking at the very thick volume of the city budget, I'm disap-
pointed to say that the proposed budget shows no rollbacks,
reductions of any kind for council, charter officers, managers
and nonunion employees. You may recall that several depart-
ment heads and top people at city hall received large increases,
some up to $10,000 a year for two years. I think it would be nice
that somewhere in this new budget, this item was addressed.
Some of the our city employees make more than six figures, and
it just seems to me that before they start throwing overboard
people like code officers, who are very badly needed, that they
start thinking about reducing the salaries of council, the charter
officers, the managers and so on.


Disaster prep. Vice Mayor
Sue Lang wants to spend down
our city reserve to help bal-
ance the budget. Needless to
say, it wouldn't be such an
issue if she and her fellow
council members hadn't run
up $3 million in needless legal
bills. But it's a dumb idea
because the reserve exists for
disaster preparedness. It was
created back when city leaders
saw how long it took to get fed-
eral money after Hurricane
Charley. I suppose you could
make the argument that the
current council is a disaster,
but somehow I think that's not
what Vice Mayor Lang had in
mind.
Problem solved. Thanking
you publishing my Let'em
Have It, Trailer trash there
went the neighborhood. The
trailer has been condemned, I
have been told, by the health
department and the environ-
mental code department. It's
going to be condemned and
torn down.
Thank you health depart-
ment, thank you code depart-
ment, thank you sheriff's
department. Thank you, thank
you. Maybe the neighborhood
can recover now.
Clipped? More than two
months ago, I stopped by the
Gondolier Sun office and left
four copies of one of the best
hometown newspapers in the
world, The Duxbury Clipper,
and asked that they be given to


Let 'em


Have It


Bob Vedder. He has never
mentioned receiving them or
having read them, and yet in
his column he's always men-
tioning other people's newspa-
pers. I wonder if he ever got the
Duxbury Clippers and if he
ever read them. If he did, he
would notice what a wonder-
ful newspaper it is.
Bill me. Let's get this
straight. The Venice Comp-
rehensive Plan states: "There
are provisions to rebuild con-
dos and townhouses if knock-
ed down by hurricanes or
fires"? Does this mean the plan
would rebuild my home too,
under the same circum-
stances? Wow. That's great.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Changes were


made to the comprehensive plan
to ensure that buildings destroyed
in such circumstances could be
rebuilt by the owners at their
expense even though they might
not comply with new density
standards.
Welcome home. Hey,
grads. Who says you can't go
home again? Robert Frost said
it best: "Home is, when you go
there, they have to take you
in." Hi, Mom and Dad.
Keep it open. Why, oh, why
is Kmart closing? This all-
encompassing store is about
the only store in the Venice
area where you can shop for
anything needed for everyday
living. The prices are great, ser-
vice is improving, you can find
anything you need there and
we need such a store. Venice
wants to be kept a small town,
and as it is, we don't even have
a large pharmacy in town.
Shopping or eating on Venice
Avenue is almost impossible
for the working person. Prices
are for tourists and not for the
natives in Venice. Restaurants
and store prices there are so
unrealistic, it's a fright. In this
economy, we need a store
nearby. Walmart is great too,
but surely not convenient for
older people wanting to shop
nearby. We don't even have
more than one supermarket to
choose from anymore.
Why doesn't the chamber of
commerce or city council try
to promote businesses that
can cater to the retired or
working class and not worry so
much about the tourists who
come to town for maybe four
to six months a year? Please try
to see that the powers-that-be
reconsider closing Kmart, for
the benefit of the majority of
people living on the island and
nearby.
Pony up. My call is about
managers in restaurants with
long hair hanging all over the
place, but they make their staff
wear caps or have a ponytail. I
think they should follow their
own policy.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Atlantic City lost this gale

Editor:
Atlantic City's Bader Field was where I took my first
flying lesson back in the early '50s. It was located
immediately north of the city.
Since Bader Field had all that unused space, the
city's fathers and mothers decided they must put that
space to good use, so they put in baseball and soccer
fields. Apparently those were well used facilities.
Then one day the city's mothers and fathers said,
"You know what? All those planes flying out of Bader
are a safety factor to those using the fields, so we bet-
ter close the airport." And so they did.
Now that field provides no income to the city. So
the fathers and mothers decided to put the property
on the selling block, asking price $1 billion. No takers
until one day in 2008, a Pennsylvania firm offered
$800,000 plus it would donate another $100,000 to the
city's coffers to compensate for lost tax revenue. It
wanted to build three new casinos on the property.
The mothers and fathers, in their wisdom, refused
the $900,000 package and the land lies vacant yet
today.
Does this all sound kinda familiar?

Ward L. Barritt
Venice


Representing all,
districts or no
Editor:
My opponent for
Venice City Council Seat
3 commended me for
bringing the districting
issue to the forefront. It's
no secret that I live in
Golden Beach, and I'm
extremely proud of it. So
you won't find me the
least bit apologetic for
buying a home here over
30 years ago.
What he isn't telling
you, of course, is the fact
that I have knocked on
thousands of doors all
over Venice, including
those of his neighbors, to
assure the people of
Venice that all voices are
heard and represented by
Seat 3. I think equal rep-
resentation is essential
and have always empha-
sized that I support what
is in the best interests of
Venice as a whole, and
not just issues that are
particular to any one sec-
tion, including Golden
Beach.
While I'm not opposed








0.08


to districting in the fu-
ture, I believe it can only
be instituted after careful
planning so that the elec-
torate is not denied rep-
resentation by their cho-
sen candidate. In the
meantime I am listening
to the voters as to what
they think is right for
Venice as a whole.
Last, my opponent
implies that I am some-
how "teamed" with Harry
Walia. Candidate Walia
and I operate separate
campaigns, and more
important, develop our
positions independently.
This is a very important
distinction in light of the
fact that our two oppo-
nents are supported and
endorsed by at least four
members on council.

Emilio Carlesimo
Venice


Let's read it
in the papers
Editor:
Why has our U.S. pres-
ident issued an executive
order restricting the re-
lease of his personal
records: birth certificate,
baptism, grade school
and university, passport,
health history, Illinois
State Bar Association and
files from his years as an
Illinois senator?
What is he hiding?
Why is he hiding any of the
above-mentioned rec-
ords?
Our FBI and CIA cer-
tainly must know Oba-
ma's birth records and
passport information. It
is time living in the shad-
ow of secrecy be stopped.
We all can stand tall
and without shame if our
president quits hiding
who he honestly is. Bar-
ack, you have a passport
(perhaps several). For the
president of the United
States of America to con-
ceal every aspect of his
birth and life up to the
day he was inaugurated
is inconceivable and un-
American.
Barack's paternal grand-
mother was proud to pro-
claim Barack's birth in
Kenya, which she claimed
to have witnessed. Barack
claims to have been born
in two different hospitals
in Honolulu. Rumor has it
that Barack's mother went
to Canada to give birth.
Official legal docu-
ments exist. Why are you
hiding them?

FRAN VALENCIC
COLUMNIST


Being the social col-
umnist for the Venice
Gondolier Sun must rank
up there as one of the
best jobs ever. My heart
sings every Wednesday
morning when I turn to
the back page of the Our
Town section of the
paper and see the photos
and column.
I'm grateful for how
terrific the page looks, as
I just turn in the photos
and words and someone
makes it all work. I'm also
grateful to have a chance
to publicize the terrific
citizens who live in my
hometown and the
events they plan to make
life good.
As I recovered from
my cancer surgery, I real-
ized how much I missed
being in the loop and
couldn't wait to get back
to work. I knew I would
face some challenges
since I had my left arm
amputated at Moffitt
Cancer Center as part of
my cancer treatment.
The time came, and I
went to my first assign-
ment. I managed to take
photos and get captions.
I always made sure I had
a bench, table or chair
nearby on which to place
my reporter's pad to get
names written and spell-


ed correctly.
The Venice Gondolier
Sun has a door-code
security system. I went to
the paper after hours as I
usually do to download
my photos. I plugged in
the door code, turned the
lever and tried to pull the
door open, just grasping
the small lever. It didn't
work.
I tried a second time
with no luck.
"I need some help,
Lord," I said as I assessed
the situation.

...because in
the big picture,
life is good."


- Fran


Valencic


On the third try I
plugged in the numbers,
turned the lever and
wedged my arm between
the door handle and the
door, still holding onto
the lever. I was able to
pull open the door
enough to get my knee
into the opening be-
tween the door and the
frame to hold it open. I
released my arm, opened
the door the rest of the
way and I was inside.
"Thanks, Lord," I said.
Once inside, I turned
on the computer without
a hitch but needed to
hold my camera between
my knees so I could open
the case and take out my
memory card. The rest
was all doable. As I
watched the pictures ap-
pear on the screen I had
the same excitement I
always do when viewing
wonderful, smiling faces.
After downloading, I
checked my Gondolier


space and saw I had
some cards and invita-
tions for social events. I
closed my eyes and
thought how good the
office smelled and how
great I felt to be back.
I went home, wrote my
columns and captions
and when I went to e-
mail them to Bob Mudge
the way I always did, the
procedure wouldn't work.
Every time I went to
copy and paste, the In-
ternet would disconnect.
Luckily, my techie
granddaughter, Tali, was
home. She got a disc and
copied my story and cap-
tions to the disk. I took it
to Bob and his computer
couldn't read the disc.
Perry Pentz, our wonder-
ful sports editor, in-
tervened. He copied
from my disc to his com-
puter, reconfigured the
work and sent it to Bob's
computer and we had
script.
After discussions with
some local computer
gurus, I learned the prob-
lem may have occurred
because of a simple up-
date I got somewhere
causing my Dragon Nat-
urally Speaking program
to need what the experts
call a patch. Until the
problem is solved, I'll be
using a flash drive. I
developed new skills and
vocabulary because of
the whole procedure and
all the glitches.
Since being the social
columnist for the Venice
Gondolier Sun is the best
job ever, I'm viewing
these forks in the road as
learning experiences be-
cause in the big picture,
life is good.

School board: Obsolete computers must go


BY CHRISTINE HAWES
SUN CORRESPONDENT

At first glance, the situation
seemed a perfect example of
outrageous government waste
- stacks of laptop computers
sitting in a school cafeteria,
seemingly discarded rather
than being donated or sold
cheaply to needy citizens.
That's the story Sarasota
County school officials faced a
week before
the start of
this school
year, after
photos of the
computers at
EmmaE.
Booker Ele-
mentary
School sur-
faced in the Puleo
media. It's a
story that former school board
candidate Millicent E. Puleo
tried to revive at a recent
meeting.
She called attention to a list
of computers purchased in
2005 or earlier and other
equipment, valued at just
more than $15,000, that was
slated for "deletion" from the
school district's inventory list.
"I do hope that the removal
of these computers has been
done with consideration,"
Puleo said during the meet-


ing's citizen comment section.
In reality, said school dis-
trict spokesman Scott
Ferguson, the district's efforts
to accommodate fast-chang-
ing technology is not only
considerable, but tries to
address what happens long
after the computers are out of
the district's hands.

Up to date
Ferguson received 23 e-
mails, plus uncounted calls, in
the days following mid-August
news reports about the stacks
of Apple laptop computers in
the Booker cafeteria. Some
people were concerned the
district was wasting money;
others questioned why it
failed to donate or auction off
the computers to families that
couldn't afford their own.
While Ferguson provided a
lengthy answer to the ques-
tions raised, his response did
not receive coverage by the
outlets that had triggered the
story.
"The original stories have
been repeated and in some
cases expanded upon via the
Internet, adding fuel to the
rumors," he wrote in his
explanation. "We hope this
information about our poli-
cies and practices regarding
computers will bring some
balance to the discussion."


School Board Chair
Caroline Zucker, who defeated
Puleo in the 2008 election,
said the need to continuously
replace obsolete computers is
real, intensi-
fied by efforts
to equalize
every
school's.
access to the
same tech-
nology.
"Your
computers
become out- Zucker
dated, they
really do," Zucker said. "You
can't even add software to
some of these computers
we're replacing, because they
don't have enough memory
for today's software. (We're)
also making sure every school
has up-to-date computers to
make sure that no school is
left behind."
While basic word process-
ing and Internet access are
possible with 7- or 8-year-old
computers, most software
programs and manyWeb sites
require capabilities present
only in modern-day models
from recent years, said Phil
Sorrentino of Sarasota's PC
Users Group, which refurbish-
es computers for the school
district, needy families and
other entities.


"If, as an individual, you
wanted to stay abreast of
things, you'd be getting a new
computer every two or three
years," he said.

Where they go
The formal inventory "dele-
tion" by the board of a com-
puter or other property is a
legal requirement whether the
computer is obsolete, or do-
nated for refurbishment, said
Mitsi Corcoran, the district's
chief financial officer. Once a
computer is declared obso-
lete, everything on it must be
wiped clean because of licens-
ing laws.
Computers that can be
refurbished are sent to either
the Education Foundation, a
nonprofit organization that
has donated more than 2,500
computers with software
obtained through a licensing
agreement to needy fami-
lies, or to the PC Users Group,
which handles Apple comput-
ers, Corcoran said.
And while the district used
to auction off computers that
those organizations could not
refurbish, a call several years
ago from Charlotte County's
Code Enforcement depart-
ment put an end to that prac-
tice. The department had dis-
covered dozens of old
Sarasota County computers


illegally dumped by someone
who had purchased them at
an auction.
The district, choosing not
to contribute to "e-waste" or
rack up disposal costs at a rate
of $15 per unit, instead turned
to MARS LLC, a state-licensed
salvage company, to recycle its
computers, Ferguson said.
The district now receives a
small stipend from MARS
based on the market value of
recycled components.
As for the computers pho-
tographed in Booker's cafete-
ria, Corcoran said they were
stored there while being
assessed, not to be thrown
away, and are likely still being
reviewed to determine which
can be refurbished, trans-
ferred among schools in the
district, or determined obso-
lete.
Meanwhile, the district is in
the first year of a program to
lease, rather than purchase,
computers so that the task of
keeping up with changing
technology is more fluid and
less costly.
"It's a little disappointing
that that is how the district is
being perceived," Corcoran
said of the earlier reports
about wasted computers. "We
try very hard to be good stew-
ards of the taxpayers' money.
That's my job."


School district to add virtual high school classes


FROM THE
SARASOTA COUNTY
SCHOOL DISTRICT

The Sarasota County
School District has se-
lected Florida Virtual
School as its partner in
offering eligible students
in grades nine-12 the
option of participating in
its online instruction
program, known as Sara-
sotaVirtual School.
The choice of Florida
Virtual School as the ven-
dor for the portion of SVS
serving grades nine-12,
as recommended by dis-
trict staff, is subject to
approval by the School
Board of Sarasota County
at its next regular meet-
ing, Tuesday, Sept. 15.
Previously, the district
announced that it will
contract with a company
known as K-12 to provide
an online instruction op-
tion for eligible students
in grades K through
eight, in accordance with
the new state require-
ment to offer "virtual"
instruction. The school
board already has ap-
proved this provider; the
Sarasota Virtual School
began for students in
those grades on Aug. 24,
the first day of the 2009-
10 school year. Students
in all grades who are eli-
gible for the SVI program
and are not yet registered
must do so by 4 p.m.,
Tuesday, Sept. 29, through
the district's School Choice
office.
Sarasota Virtual School
is an interactive learning


environment created
through technology, in
which the student and
teacher are separated by
time, space or both. It
will use a state-approved
curriculum with instruc-
tional materials that in-
clude a computer, Inter-
net access and printed
materials. Computers
and Internet access may
be provided at no charge
to eligible students who
meet family income re-
quirements. Instructors
will be highly qualified or
certified teachers, as
defined by the federal No
Child Left Behind law.
Eligible students for
the 2009-10 school year
are those who will be in
grades K-12 (pending
school board approval of
the program for students
in grades nine-12) and
were enrolled in a Florida
public school (tradition-
al, charter or alternative
school) since Oct. 1,
2008; are dependents of a
member of the United
States military trans-
ferred to the state within
the last year; or were en-
rolled in 2008-09 in a
school district virtual in-
struction or an approved
K-eight virtual school
program.
According to Florida
Statute, students who
were home-schooled dur-
ing the 2008-09 school
year are not eligible. Stu-
dents who already have
begun the year in anoth-
er district school or pro-
gram and who meet all
the requirements for eli-


NEED YOUR 5TUF[ OLDFAST (tiidri

gibility may apply for the
virtual school option for
the remainder of the cur-
rent school year.
The virtual program
will be graded, just as all
schools in Florida receive
a grade each year. Teach-
ers will monitor student
progress and give assign-
ments online and through
physical materials ship-
ped to and from stu-
dents. Students, parents,

changes to take effect in late October or
November.
Citizens can come any time during the
90-minute open-house-style meetings to
review the changes, make comments and ask
questions. While held in different areas of the
county, all four meetings will have the same
information.
The dates and locations of the meetings, all
from 4:30-6 p.m., are:
* Monday, Sept. 14: Elsie Quirk Library, 100
W. Dearborn St., Englewood
* Wednesday, Sept. 16: Community Hall in

SCAT riders, particularly in the south county
communities of Venice, Englewood and North
Port. SCAT will discontinue several routes
and replace most of the current service with
planned route improvements. In addition to
restructuring south county bus routes, many
schedule adjustments are being planned to
SCATs north county routes, including some
added trips.


Individuals with disabilities who need assistance to participate in any of these proceedings should contact the county administration at least three (3) business days before the meeting time and date at 941-861-5344.

WEEKEND EDITION SEPT. 12, 2009


Town hall meeting set on H1N1 flu


FROM THE SARASOTA
COUNTY HEALTH
DEPARTMENT

Sarasota County and
the Sarasota County
Health Department will
hold a communitywide
forum to provide preven-
tion tips and information
about the H1N1 virus
and seasonal flu at 3 p.m.
Monday, Sept. 14, in the
Sarasota County Admin-
istration Center, 1660
Ringling Blvd., first-floor
County Commission
Chamber.
A panel of local ex-
perts will address the fol-
lowing topics:
What to do if you get
flu-like symptoms
When to seek emer-
gency care
Caring for a sick per-
son in your home
What pregnant wom-
en should know
Precautions and prep-
arations at home, school,


work and in your neigh-
borhood
H1N1 and seasonal
flu vaccinations
This forum is open to
the public and will be
broadcast on Comcast
19, Verizon 32 and online
at www.scgov.net.
Citizens can ask ques-
tions during the broad-
cast by e-mail at commu
nityconnections@scgov.
net or by calling 861-
2255.
Flu shots available
While the H1N1 (swine)
flu virus has been a re-
cent concern, it is impor-
tant to remember the
risks posed by seasonal
flu. Health officials say
that getting vaccinated is
your best defense against
the seasonal flu. Every-
one 6 months and older
is urged to get their sea-
sonal flu vaccine. To pro-
tect babies under 6
months who are too


young for a flu shot, all
members of their house-
holds need to be vacci-
nated.
The seasonal flu vac-
cine will not protect
against the H1N1 (swine)
flu virus. The H1N1 flu
vaccine is being tested
and may be available in
mid-October.
Sarasota County Flu
and Pneumonia Coalition
walk-in clinic partners are
offering seasonal flu vac-
cinations for adults and
children 9 and older at the
Nokomis Walk-In Clinic,
621-623 Tamiami Trail,
Nokomis; Monday, Tues-
day, Thursday and Friday

8 a.m.-noon.
The following flu shot
drive-through clinics are
especially helpful for
oxygen-dependent per-
sons and for those who
have difficulty walking or
standing:
Thursday, Sept. 17,


10 a.m.-noon, Venice As-
sembly of God Church,

ship Center, 881 South
River Road
Tuesday, Oct. 13, 10

cepted. If you have Medi-
care B, bring a copy of
your card with you.

the South Venice folks
know of this since it was
one of the projects on
their community plan
list," she wrote on the
county e-mail server to
county officials.
According to John
Herrli, land acquisition
manager with the coun-
ty, the postal service pur-
chased the 8.66-acre
property in April 2000 for
$1.3 million. The proper-
ty is now on the market
listed with Grubb and
Ellis Corp. for $3.1 mil-


lion, or $359,359 per acre,
according to the Grubb &
Ellis Web site.
Staub said she had
been working on estab-
lishing the South Venice
post office for a decade.
The postal service had
gotten as far as submit-
ting a site plan, but put
that on hold three years
ago, it said, over equip-
ment layout issues.
"I would say it's off the
table now," Staub said.
But never say never.
"It's not an easy prop-


erty to sell," Staub said.
"They paid a lot (for the
property) and are selling
it for a lot. If they don't
sell it, who knows. I have
a glimmer of hope I keep
there, but it is really wan-
ing.
"I was surprised I did-
n't get any calls" about
the property being up for
sale, she said. "I guess
everyone has come to
understand" the reces-
sion affects everyone.

The FAA inspection report,
dated Aug. 10, found a series of


nonaeronautic leases that
were not approved by the FAA,
as required in its original quit-
claim deeds.
The city was given 30 days
to respond and sought an
extension but was denied by
the FAA.
The 728-acre Venice Mu-
nicipal Airport, a former Army
Air Corps training facility, was
deeded to the city in 1947 fol-
lowing World War II. Since then
more than 185 acres have been
released by the FAA for pro-


jects like the Intracoastal
Waterway built in 1963, Chuck
Reiter Park and the Italian
American Club and Brohard
Park in 1998, and the former
water treatment facility in
2004, according to the cityWeb
site.
The FAA wanted assurances
the proceeds from those sold
parcels went into the airport
fund.
Instead of looking back into
decades-old paperwork, the
city simply agreed to designate


of $561,032 from the existing
airport fund into a "restricted
net assets" account that can
only be spent with FAA ap-
proval on capital improve-
ments.
The airport has received
$5.6 million since 1984 in
grants from the federal govern-
ment, according to the city,
much of it to rehabilitate run-
way 13/31 in 2006.

ISSUE from Page 1A


sues and take pressure off the
budget was simply to comply
with the law.
"It's only a two-page law"
that every council member
can memorize, he said.
Emilio Carlesimo, candi-
date for Seat No. 3, said council
needs to restore integrity.
Carlesimo's opponent, Ted
Koszarski, a Democrat active
in party politics, wasn't invited
to the forum a decision by
the club's board.
Charter change?
Candidates were asked if
the city charter should be
amended to require council
members who are found
guilty of personal wrongdo-
ing to pay their own attor-
ney fees.
Carlesimo said individuals
should be held responsible.
Walia said no taxpayer
funds should be used.
"You mess up, you clean it
up," he said.
Bennett said the city should
defend against individual
charges, but "if proven they did
bad acts, they need to pay."
Taxing issues
When asked how each
would reduce taxes, answers
varied.


Walia said he supports re-
ducing the city's $25 million in
debt. He'd take a second look
at the city's annual $6.5 million
tab for health coverage.
Panama City with 40,000-
plus population is managed by
40 employees, he said, com-
paring it to Venice's 22,000
population and 301 employ-
ees.
"The bureaucrats are too
many," he said. "They need to
be streamlined."
Bennett said he would not
accept federal funds of any
kind. That could have implica-
tions for the airport and the
city budget.
"They have too many
strings attached," he said.
The city could be more effi-
cient, he added.
Carlesimo said the city
could cut down its liabilities
in lawsuits through better
management and agreed
that a closer look at the city's
health plan is warranted.
He warned that the draft
comprehensive plan that
reduces height and density
in much of the city is going
to hurt the city's bottom
line.
"The seeds have been
planted that will come back
to haunt the city," he said.


COUNCIL GETS ITS
DAY IN COURT
Twelfth Circuit Court Judge
Robert Bennett will hear
final arguments Sept. 14-15
at the South County
Courthouse on the amount
of attorneys' fees and costs
to be awarded to plaintiff
Anthony Lorenzo in the
Sunshine lawsuit after the
city admitted violating the
Sunshine Law and Public
Records Law. The suit was
filed in May 2008 against a
handful of sitting city council
members and members of
the since disbanded airport
advisory board and was set-
tled earlier this year.


Representation
When asked about the cur-
rent concentration of council
members who reside in Gold-
en Beach, all three candidates
played down the issue and
pledged to represent the entire
city.
Bennett, a resident of Saw-
grass off the island, said the
current imbalance was more
by chance than a plot.
Walia, who lives on the
island, said the difference is he


doesn't live in Golden Beach.
A better indicator of how
candidates are likely to vote,
said Carlesimo, is to look at
their endorsements. His are
from all over the city, he said.
"They're giving my neigh-
borhood a bad name," said
Carlesimo, a Golden Beach
resident.
CQG forum
Later Wednesday evening,
all four candidates braved tor-
rential rains to attend a candi-
date forum sponsored by
Citizens for Quality Govern-
ment at the Venice Yacht Club.
Koszarski got his first
chance to sell himself to the
pro-business group.
"I tried to humanize myself
for them. Tell them a little
about my background. The
skill set I bring here and how
I've been involved locally," he
said. "I respected this is a busi-
ness group and spoke about
how the city could grow by
placing more emphasis on the
value of senior citizens.
"Most people don't know a
retired couple brings in
$70,000 a year into the local
economy. Half of that could be
medical expenses. It stays here
and regenerates. Let's not dis-
miss seniors."


Koszarski also spoke about
supporting a senior communi-
ty like Aston Gardens.
"It's like living in a nice
hotel. They may pay $5,000 a
month," he said. "Think of the
payroll we are talking about
here. And that doesn't even
include spending on medical
services. It's something I
thought the folks need to think
about."
He also put in a plug to sup-
port for his Veterans Memorial
Archive project in which he
videotapes veterans speaking
about their role in various
wars.
"It's a project that they and I
can get behind," he said. "Take
these stories and make them
available to all Florida high
schools. We could do that and
it wouldn't require much
money."
The evening, he said, "was
about our hopes, not our
hatred."
As it did last year, the CQG
declined to endorse any candi-
date in this year's city council
race, and was not approached
by any candidate seeking its
endorsement, said CQG mem-
ber Dan Boone.
The city election is Nov. 3.

Burton's 3 TDs lift Venice to win


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


Venice's Trey Burton doesn't
talk about himself except for
one thing his speed.
The quarterback got to
showcase it as he outran
Braden River's defense en
route to two long touchdown
runs as the Indians held on for
a 28-20 victory over the Pirates
on Friday at Powell-Davis
Stadium.
The 6-foot-3 1/2,228-pound
senior rushed for 188 yards on
20 carries and scored three
touchdown on runs of 1, 58
and 95 yards. He also passed
for 163 yards.
"That is about the only
thing I will say about myself,"
said Burton, who runs a 4.49


40-yard dash. "My speed is
really underestimated.
"I haven't seen him get
caught too often," Venice coach
John Peacock said. "When he
gets rolling he is tough."
Leading 14-0 in the second
quarter, Burton went down the
right sideline kicked it into
high gear and outran three
Braden River players then cut
back at the 7-yard line for a 58-
yard touchdown with 5:28 left
in the quarter. Joey Carlin's PAT
gave Venice a 21-0 cushion.
"I am going to do my best
not to get caught," Burton
said. "If I have to shake some-
body or run somebody over. I
just wanted to win. Whole
team wanted to win."
Then Braden River made a
comeback.

Venice sweeps Tallahassee Leon in three


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


Unranked Venice wanted
to make a statement against
nationally ranked Tallahassee
Leon.
Did and done.
The Lady Indians got a
total team effort to sweep the
Lady Lions, 26-24, 25-19, 25-
19, on Friday at Venice High.
"Opportunities come along
throughout the season and
we've recognized that this
weekend is an opportunity for
us to play two nationally
ranked teams," Venice coach
Brian Wheatley said. 'A team
is a product of what they do
over and over again. If we
want to be state champs, we
have to continually do that
over and over again."
"We were trying to make a
statement tonight," Venice


senior setter Taylor Capasso
said. "Just go out there and
worry about what we had to
do. If we play our volleyball,
we are going to beat anyone."
The first game couldn't
have been any tighter as nei-
ther team had more than a
two-point lead and the teams
were tied 13 times.
Leon, ranked No. 73 in the
nation by Prepvolleyball.com,
led 21-19 after a kill by Taylor
Vaughn. However, two con-
secutive lift violations tied the
game at 21-21.
Two straight points by the
Lady Lions gave Leon a 23-21
advantage. A kill by Jillian
Allen and unforced error tied
it at 23-23.
A block gave Leon game
point, but the Lady Lions
served out of bounds for
another tie at 24-24.
Venice grabbed a 25-24


lead as Leon hit the ball out of
bounds. Venice closed out the
first game as Leon hit the ball
into the net.
Venice spread the ball
around as six Lady Indians
recorded kills in the first game
with junior Autumn Duyn
leading the way with six kills.
"I thought everyone played
outstanding," Wheatley said.
"It was a great team effort. Our
outside hitters were phenom-
enal. Taylor Capasso did a
good job of moving the ball
around. We did a lot of things
really well. You have to do a lot
of things really well to beat a
nationally ranked team."
Determination
The second game was tied
at 8-8 whenVenice scored four
straight points with two kills
and a block by senior Morgan
Shattuck and another kill by


Emily Daniels, who finished
with 10 kills in the match.
The Lady Lions got within
17-16 but kills by Duyn and
Shattuck and block by Duyn
gave Venice a 20-16 cushion.
Venice closed it out as Leon
committed four unforced
errors.
Leon jumped all over
Venice in the third game, and
it looked like the match was
going four games.
The Lady Lions had leads of
7-1 and 13-5 before a timeout
by Wheatley settled down the
Lady Indians.
"I hammered them," Wheat-
ley said in the timeout. "I told
them I am not going to let
them give up and we are here
to make a statement. There
is no better way to make a
statement than to win in

Braden River came
out in the third quarter
and drove 53 yards on
just three plays to score
again as Bryant busted
up the middle for a 56-
yard TD run. The two-
point run conversion
was stopped by Evan
Boone.
After Venice couldn't
do anything offensively,
Braden River added
another touchdown on a
19-yard run by quarter-
back Stephen Fischer.
Quinton Jones caught
the two-point pass con-
version to pull the Pirates
within, 21-20, with 5:41
left in the third quarter.
"We just kept making
mistakes after mistakes,"
said Peacock. "Don't
know if it was the off
week but we are going to
correct it. Definitely over-
all it's a great victory for
us."
The Pirates had Venice
backed up at its 5-yard
line late in the third quar-
ter.
Then Burton showed
his speed once again.
Burton rolled into the
end zone and ran down
the right sideline and
outran the last Braden
River defender at the 50-
yard line for a 95-yard TD
run with 2:47 left in the
third quarter.
"I am tall and big and I
don't know if they think I
can run that fast but I am
going to give it my all,"
said Burton.
Venice caught a break
on a fumbled punt return
when David Williams
recovered the ball at the

tions by linebacker Kye
Rodgers and tackle Dino
Fanti as well as a forced
fumble by Clay Burton
which was recovered by
Omari Phillips.
"The fourth quarter I
thought the defense
came to play," Peacock
said. "They did a good
job of stopping them. We
are just couple plays here
and there of being a real
good football team."
"I'm real happy we got
our first win but it was
horrible," Burton said.
"We didn't play too good
at all. We are going to
learn from this."
Venice jumped out to
a 21-0 with 5:28 left in the
second quarter.
The Indians took
advantage of the lone
turnover in the first half
to score the first touch-
down.

Dorsey lifts Venice to victory

BY PERRY D. PENTZ by six strokes.
t- r r "-t' r' i~-r .. . .


SPORTS ED~ ITORU


Venice junior Justin
Dorsey wasn't even going
to get a chance to play in
a quad match against
Lakewood Ranch, Port
Charlotte and Booker.
An injury put him in
the lineup and he made
the most of it by card-
ing a 1-under par 35 to
earn medalist honors
and lift the Indians to a
148-152 win over Lake-
wood Ranch on Wednes-
day at Jacaranda West
Country Club.
Port Charlotte was
third with 167 while
Booker scored a 193.
The win raisedVenice's
record to 6-1.
On Tuesday, Venice's
other starter, Kyle Phillips,
was supposed to play but
an injury to his shoulder
put Dorsey in the lineup.
On Wednesday, Phillips
had a doctor appoint-
ment to get his shoulder
checked out.
"He said 'I don't think
I should play,' so we go
to the next person in
line and that is Justin,"
Venice coach Marty
Tarala said.
All the drama landed
on Venice's final golfer
as the Indians were
trailing the Mustangs by
one stroke.
Dorsey, who had
birdies on No. 2 and 6,
closed out his day with
a birdie on the final
hole. His 40-foot putt
for an eagle was just
short as he tapped in for
the birdie.
His 35 improved his
best score of the season


You don't expect
that from your last guy
to be your low man,"
Tarala said. "Great sur-
prise. He's worked real
hard. He had good
opportunity to get some
golf in over the summer
and took advantage of
it."
Senior Tim Garofalo
and sophomore Frank
Perilli finished with eight
pars and one bogey for
37s. Senior Erick Bennett
shot a 39 while Tyler Jones
and Austin McCaffrey had
a 40 and 42, respectively.
"A nice little win,"
said Tarala. "I think it
(the score) does send
somewhat of a message
to the northern schools
that read the paper. ...
Anytime you get under
150, that's good golf. I
don't care where you are
playing. You still have to
get it in the hole."
Venice hosts a quad
match against Charlotte,
Lemon Bay and Sarasota
at 3:30 p.m. Monday at

try Club.

Sthe beach


I An estimated 1,700 people attended the first One Christ Won City event at
Brohard Park during the evening of Sept. 6.
Of those, a little more than 70 people were baptized in the Gulf of Mexico.
Jim Foubister, an originator of the idea of a unifying theme to bring togeth-
er the various Christian churches in town, calculated the total. Twelve church-
es participated: Auburn Road Presbyterian, Cornerstone Baptist, First Baptist,
First Christian, Fisherman's Net, Fishers of Men, Grace Community Bible, New
Life Assembly of God, The Bridge, Venice Assembly of God, Venice Bible and
Venice Presbyterian.
"Our volunteers parked 900 cars along the roadway near Sharky's, and
another volunteer made an estimate from the Coast Guard Station," he said.
Doing the math, Foubister said previous First Baptist Church events have
brought 200 people to Venice Beach. People stretched 100
yards wide for those events. Going by those figures and
adding in that people at Brohard were 12 and 15 people deep,
Ie made his estimate.
W E "From the stage, you could see people lined up near the
restrooms and walkways too," Foubister added. "It was an
incredible night. You could just feel the warm feeling every-
one had in being there. And it was very special for the people
being baptized."

-- In the works


S Mark Graves was baptized in the Gulf by the Rev. Tom
Hodge, senior pastor of First Baptist Church, and the Rev.
-- Larry Frank, senior pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church.
"I've been baptized before, when I was younger," Graves
said. "I want to be rebaptized to show my son."
"We've been here a year. I'm very sentimental, and I want my
son to see me getting baptized," he said, pointing to his wife and
child. His family accompanied him into the Gulf when he was
baptized.
Eleanor Stockert, with New Life Assembly of God, said she was
serving as a prayer partner in the prayer tent set up at the foot of
the bath house.
"We'll have 12 prayer partners there, one from each church that's
involved. We'll pray for anyone who wants us to," she said.
Barbara Edwards and her friend Elaine Cassidy sat in beach
chairs that they brought along. They were waiting for the event to
start. Both said they had already been baptized.
Barbara Webb, from Venice Assembly of God, said she had been
baptized already but was happy to be there.
"It's exciting, the event," she said. "We prayed at church today for
good weather, and it is good."
A praise band comprised 10 members, one each from 10 of the
121 churches that participated.
On stage, after the praise band played some contemporary
I ( hristian songs, Foubister, Ron Perry and Bill Swanson spoke to the
I owd. Perry and Swanson were the other two lay church members
\\ho worked with local pastors for 22 months to bring One Christ
\\'i n City together. They quoted Scripture and said how happy they
S\\-re to have such a large attendance. They all said they expect to see
t1 I hi, movement grow.
'"The humility among the pastors and praise band members was
1n -cognizable," Foubister said. "The pastors recognized it was lay peo-
phi speaking, and they allowed us to speak and say what we wanted."
According to Foubister, more events of the One Christ Won City
gi )utip are being planned.
"We are putting our heads together now and will announce the
pins as soon as we make a decision," he said.

Making simple chang-
es to improve the energy
efficiency of your home,
such as cleaning or re-
placing air filters once a
month, can save money
and is friendly to the
environment.
Tip: Vacuum and wash
the filters with soap and
water. Make sure they are
completely dry before
replacing them.
Show your stripes
A fresh coat of paint
does wonders for any
space, but make a state-
ment by painting stripes.
Tip: Start a pattern in
an inconspicuous place,
such as behind a door to
hide first-time mistakes.
To keep the stripes
straight, mark the top
and bottom of the wall
and attach a string to
both marks with a push-
pin to determine if the
line is straight before you
paint.

Maine's central coast filled with wonderful sites


BY MARY ANN ANDERSON
MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE
NEWS SERVICE

My preconceptions of visit-
ing the Maine coast were right
on the mark.
As a Southerner, I figured
there would be no grits. I was
right. I pictured pretty and
scenic fishing villages, tower-
ing forests and miles of dra-
matic coastline. Right again.
Too, I figured there would
be moose galore. Missed that
one by a country mile. There
are moose, but they are cam-
era-shy and prefer hiding in
the woods to posing for
tourists.
I also figured that people
would talk funny in Maine.
They do. The vernacular is
about as New England twangy
as it gets, and soon I was
searching for a translation
book from Old South to New
England, ah-yep. There are no
"r's" in Maine, but lots of "h's."
Car becomes cah. Yard to yahd.
Farmer to fah-mah.
And that means lobster
becomes lob-stah, which sent
my husband and me on a
Mission Possible: to eat as
much of it as we could in the
few days we had to spend in
Northpoint, Maine, in Waldo
County on the central coast.
Picturesque Waldo County,
anchored by the town of
Belfast that dates to 1770, is an
amalgamation of more than 20
small towns and villages, in-
cluding Searsport, Winterport,
Unity and Thorndike.
Here you can walk the
docks and watch as daily
catches of lobster are hauled
from the ocean, shop in myri-
ad one-of-a-kind galleries and
boutiques, sample seafood
supreme and locally crafted
wines and beers, or just
browse the farms and orchards
for fresh apples, blueberries,
and a cornucopia of vegeta-
bles.
I liked the fact that Waldo
County is one of the few coun-
ties in Maine without a "big
box" store like Walmart or
Target.
Buttered up
We feasted on lob-stah
broiled, fried, entwined in
pasta, steamed and, of course,
drowned in buttah. At Anglers


Seafood Restaurant, an actual
live crustacean was even
placed on our table so that we
could see what a lobster looks
like up close. Since I prefer my
dinner anonymous and not
staring at me with those shiny
lobster eyes, I declined the lit-
tle fellow, much to his relief,
I'm sure.
Lobster wasn't the only rea-
son we went to Maine. We real-
ly wanted to see those quaint
fishing villages and the fa-
mously dramatic coastline. On
the recommendation of a
friend who vacations there
every summer, we rented a
cabin at Point Lookout Resort
in Northpoint.
"Waldo County is midpoint
on the Maine coast," our pal
Carol said. "That makes it ideal
for branching out and visiting
other parts of the state. Within
just a few hours, you can see
the Maine Highlands, Acadia
or shop in Freeport and be
back here in time for dinner."
Staying in a cabin in Maine
seemed so, well, Maine-ish,
which led us to Point Lookout
with its stunning views of
Penobscot Bay. Our first morn-
ing there, we walked from our
cabin up to the summit of
Point Lookout. It didn't take
long for the illustrious Maine
fog and mist to lift, and from
the top of the "mountain," if
you want to call 600 feet a
mountain, Penobscot Bay
shimmered blue against the
viridity of the forested hills in a
true postcard moment.
The resort itself offers hik-
ing, biking, kayaking, racquet-
ball, bowling and snowshoe-
ing, all against the backdrop of
the bay. While this part of
Maine is for those with an
active physical lifestyle, it's also
for those who just like the
quietness of a cabin in the
woods. The cabins, cozy and
comfortable and roomy, are
hewed from of white pine in
the Maine woods.
Colors of fall
Leaf-peeper? Foliage season
begins around the end of
August, with some color al-
ready tinting the maples. From
there, it's on to a glorious
slideshow of a naturally or-
chestrated autumn. Black-
berries and blueberries dot the
landscape, too, and there are

weed for this onshore lobster dinner.


plenty of deer and even the
occasional moose wandering
about.
"In many ways, our leaves
are prettier than those of
Vermont or New Hampshire,"
said one of our cheerful servers
at the Weathervane Restaurant
where we had gone to sample
the lobster. "They are com-
bined with the green of the
pines and firs, set against the
backdrop of the blue water."
We didn't discover until we
checked into Point Lookout
that the resort promotes
healthy lifestyles, and its fit-
ness and wellness center is one
of the best-equipped I've ever
seen and even offers fitness


assessments like bone density,
balance, reaction skills and
motor control.
"The program offers a good
glimpse of how fit you are,"
said Jessica Shaffer, wellness
program manager. "It very
much opens your eyes as to
how you've lived your life and
what you should be doing to
promote a healthy lifestyle."
Taking her statement to
heart, I took the bone-density
test and passed with flying col-
ors, primarily since I'm a hiker,
with Jessica declaring that I
have excellent bone density for
a woman of my age, which I'm
not telling for all the lob-stah
in Waldo County.


The history of Waldo
County lies in the sea, which is
evident everywhere. We pop-
ped into Searsport's Penobscot
Marine Museum, Maine's old-
est maritime museum that is
composed of eight buildings
listed on the National Register.
Then later that afternoon, we
visited Bluejacket Shipcrafters
in Stockton Springs.
If you love the sea, if you
love scale-model ships and
kits, if you love building things
with your hands, you must see
Bluejacket, founded in 1905 by
a French naval architect and
now owned by Jeff and Suzi
Marger.
Each scale-model ship,
some one-of-a-kind pieces in
museums worldwide, contains
hundreds and even thousands
of pieces and takes hours and
hours of painstaking patience
to complete. Bluejacket Ship-
crafters can sell you the kit,
but, as Jeff said, "We can put a
lot of things in a box, but
patience we can't."
And then came wine time.
Much to my surprise and
utter delight Maine pro-
duces some wonderful and fla-
vorful fruit and grape wines. At
Winterport Winery and Pen-
obscot Bay Brewery, I tried sev-
eral award-winning, hand-
crafted wines made with
Maine-grown fruits like blue-
berry, pear, apple, blackberry
and cherries. While the vinos
may not be of the highest qual-
ity of those from France or
South Africa, they are definite-
ly worth a try.
With plenty of Waldo
County wine and lobster and
even a few moose to go
around, I found myself not
missing grits at all.

FINE WHINES

Letting them have it


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR

In my continuing ser-
ies discussing parts of the
paper, today's topic is
Let'em Have It.
Let me start by dis-
pelling a couple of myths.
First, there is no caller
ID on the line. Calls to
207-1111 go to an old-
fashioned cassette-tape
answering machine on
the corner of my desk.
Unless the tape needs to
be replaced, I don't even
know when a call comes
in.
The tape is tran-
scribed by someone who
might recognize the voic-
es of frequent callers -
you know who you are -
but couldn't put names to
them. The transcription
goes into a folder for me
to check for grammar,
spelling, newspaper style
and general printability,
and to add a "title" the
one or two words in bold
type that precede each
call.
Second, none of the
calls is made up by us.
That's not to say that a
caller has never been jok-
ing or ironic, but every-
thing that you read is
from a call or, rarely, a
written Let'em submis-
sion.


Feelings about Let'em
among our readers are
somewhat mixed. Lots of
them like the outlet it
provides while others feel
that such comments
don't belong in the paper
if the people making
them won't attach their
names to them. It's a fact,
though, that Let'em is
one of the most-read
parts of the paper, which
suggests that even its de-
tractors read it.
Another criticism is
that some of the calls can
be quite long. Though we
ask callers to keep their
comments brief, not
everyone honors the re-
quest. We like to let peo-
ple say their piece, but
sometimes we'll delete a
part of a call that is repe-
titious.
People sometimes
wonder why we print
calls from people who
don't know what they're
talking about. As far as
we're concerned, people
are entitled to have
"wrong" opinions -
"wrong," of course, being
a matter of one's point of
view. We do try to correct
factual mistakes, though,
on the assumption that
the caller isn't the only
person who thinks, for
example, that South Ven-
ice is within the Venice


city limits. That's why
you'll see an editor's note
after a call now and then.
There are a few rea-
sons that a call might
never make it into print.
As with letters, we're
not going to publish any-
thing that we think might
get us sued. We let callers
beat up on public offi-
cials if it relates to their
job performance but per-
sonal attacks on anyone
are going to get axed. So
will attempts to plug or
criticize a business by
name.
There's a lag between
the time a call is made
and when it pops out of
the pipeline for publica-
tion. If a call is no longer
timely, it usually won't
run. When we've received
a bunch of calls about
something, we omit the
ones we haven't run
when it becomes appar-
ent they would be beat-
ing a dead horse.
And occasionally we
lose a bunch of calls for
technical reasons the
tape jams. There's no fix
for that.
Did I miss something?
E-mail me with a ques-
tion for a future column.

Unitarian church welcomes interim pastor


BY JACQUELYN HILLER
GUEST WRITER


PHOTO COURTESY OF UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST CONGREGATION OF VENICE
The Rev. Don Beaudreault, left, the new interim minister at
Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Venice, sits with partner
Juan Rivera, and the latest family addition, Lacy, a 3-year-old
Rhodesian Ridgeback who needed a home.


The Unitarian Universalist
Congregation of Venice wel-
comed to its pulpit on Sunday,
Sept. 7, the newly appointed
interim minister, the Rev.
Donald Beaudreault. He will
serve for the upcoming year
while the congregation conducts
a search for a settled minister.
The vacancy in this pulpit
occurred when the Rev. Susanne
Nazian accepted a call to the
Tarpon Springs Unitarian Uni-
versalist Church. She had served
as minister of the Venice church
for more than eight years.
Beaudreault will mark the
30th anniversary of his ordina-
tion in October. He comes to
Venice from Norfolk, one of 40
locations where he has lived and
worked, lending further depth to
the topic of his first sermon here
in Venice: "Home, Sweet Home."


An accomplished jazz pianist
who often uses music to illus-
trate his sermons, he furthered
the theme by playing the well
known nostalgic country song,
"Take Me Home, Country Road."
"Life is too fleeting not to
accept home wherever you can
find it," he said in concluding
his Sunday-morning sermon.
Although he is familiar with
this area, having served as minis-
ter of the Unitarian Universalist
Church of Sarasota for seven
years, still he will discover some
welcome improvements such as
The Legacy Trail (he and his part-
ner, Juan Rivera, are runners)
and the dog park (they have a
new dog, Lacy).
Don is father of two much
loved daughters; one is now fin-
ishing law school and the other
lives in New York City where she
is an artists' representative and
the drummer in an all-female
rock band.

Mortgage rates edge down, still above record lows


WASHINGTON -
Rates for 30-year home
loans ticked down for
the second-straight
week, remaining close to
record lows reached over
the spring.
The average rate for a
30-year fixed mortgage
was 5.07 percent this
week, down from 5.08
percent a week earlier,
mortgage company
Freddie Mac said Thurs-
day.
Rates, while above the
record low of 4.78
percent hit in the spring,
are still at attractive levels
for people looking to buy
a home or refinance.
Rates should stay low
for another month or
two as government
efforts to keep them low
remain effective, pre-
dicts Michael Larson, an
interest rate and real
estate analyst with Weiss
Research.
But it won't last
forever. Rates will
eventually trend upward,
Larson said, as the
economy starts to turn
around and concerns
return about how long
overseas investors can
stomach massive levels
of U.S. debt.
"Over the longer-term,
there's going to be
general upward pressure

week jump since mid-March.

on interest rates across
the spectrum," he said.
"Mortgage rates will be
caught up in that."
To prop up the hous-
ing market and help the
economy revive from the
worst recession since the
1930s, the Federal
Reserve is spending
$1.25 trillion on mort-
gage-backed securities,
which has driven down
rates on home loans.
That money is set to
run out by winter,
though some analysts
expect the central bank
to add more money to
the program or allow it
to last longer by gradually
reducing its purchases.
"What the Fed does
not want is to see a sharp
pickup in mortgage
rates," said Greg McBride,
senior financial analyst
with Bankrate.com. "That
would throw cold water
on a recovering housing
market."
With rates low, bor-
rowers are seizing on the

opportunity. Mortgage
applications for refi-
nancing surged 22.5
percent for the week
ending Sept. 4 in the
biggest one-week jump
since mid-March.
According to the Mort-
gage Bankers Associa-
tion, applications for
home purchases were up
9.5 percent.
Despite government
efforts to prop up the
mortgage market,
qualifying for a loan is
still tough. Lenders have
tightened their standards
dramatically, so the best
rates are available to
those with solid credit
and a 20 percent down
payment.
Freddie Mac collects


FOR


mortgage rates on
Monday through
Wednesday of each week
from lenders around the
country. Rates often
fluctuate significantly,
even within a given day.
The average rate on a
15-year fixed-rate mort-
gage fell to 4.5 percent,
from 4.54 percent last


week, according to
Freddie Mac.
Rates on five-year,
adjustable-rate mort-
gages averaged 4.51
percent, down from 4.59
percent a week earlier.
Rates on one-year,
adjustable-rate mort-
gages rose to 4.64
percent from 4.62


percent.
The rates do not
include add-on fees
known as points. The
nationwide fee for loans
in Freddie Mac's survey
averaged 0.7 point for
30-year and 15-year
loans, 0.5 point for five-
year loans and 0.6 point
for one-year loans.

THE HORTON STORY

OVER 30 YEARS AGO, DONALD R. HORTON HAD A VISION
Of livable and affordable new homes built with unmatched efficiencies and uncompromising .-
quality. Of family traditions passed on to new generations. Of a business that would grow by
making customers' dreams a reality.
That philosophy of creating value every step of the way was the Company's signature focus
when Horton unveiled his first neighborhood in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area over three decades
ago. As the Company grew from a local homebuilder, to a regional homebuilder, to ultimately
the largest homebuilder in the United States, that philosophy has never wavered.
Today, D.R. Horton continues to demonstrate its leadership in residential development through
design innovation, superior craftsmanship, and responsiveness to the needs of its customers.
The simple vision that began over 30 years ago represents years of value and security when
you choose America's Builder to make your dreams come true.

Lady prefers '57 T-Bird to engagement ring


his week's column
may be most
interesting to
female readers, however,
I'm sure you "car guys"
can learn from it too!
Jan Barrett of Punta
Gorda is a very accom-
plished "car gal" and a
unique person, to say the
least. She wrote about
her background in the
hobby and life experi-
ences that immediately
woke me up with its text,
enough to use most of
the content as the
feature part of this
article.
"I have loved cars since
I was a girl of 7. When I
met my future husband,
he was the owner of
eight classic and antique
cars. Upon our engage-
ment, he wanted to give
me a diamond ring, but I
didn't want a diamond. I
wanted a 1957
Thunderbird and that
could be my 'engage-
ment ring.' From the age
of 17, I1 wanted to own a
T-Bird, and though it was
a little large for my
finger, he said he would
get one for me.
"We went to a Barrett-
Jackson Auction and
then to a Kruse Auction
in Miami, where we
found a '57 Bird that I fell
in love with. It was
Thunderbird Bronze
color and came into the
auction pulled by a rope.
I checked and found it
had no brakes.
Nevertheless, I wanted
this 'Bird,' especially
when I overheard it had
been owned by a
Hollywood actor.
"People were wary
about bidding on it
because they didn't know
why it wasn't driven
through. We had the
highest bid and brought
it home on a flatbed
truck.
"That was in 1978, and
I've had my 'baby bird'
ever since. The marriage
didn't last, but the
automobile did! I had an
excellent restorer repaint
the original bronze color
that is still on the car. I
bought a white porthole
hardtop, as it came only
with the soft top. He
totally detailed the
engine and replaced
parts that were needed.
The brakes were No. 1 on
my list, so that I could
safely drive it. An under-
the-dash A/C unit was
installed without
damaging the firewall, to
be able to drive in the
Florida heat.
"My 'Bronze Baby Bird'
now has only 33,390
original miles, which
include about 4,000
miles that have been put
on since the purchase.
During the past few
years, wire wheels and
radial white walls were
added for a smoother


SUN PHOTOS BY LEE ROYSTON


The owner of this beautiful 1957 Thunderbird is Jan Barrett of Punta Gorda.


"My specialty in old
cars was paint and body.
I helped many amateurs
and professionals buy
quality cars using my
knowledge. I joined
different car clubs in
Florida over the past 30
or so years and made
many good contacts with
top flight collectors all
the while.
"In 1987, I moved to
Colorado Springs, Colo.,
trailering my 'Bird' there,
and belonged to the
early T-Bird Club both
local and national.
"I moved back to
Florida after 13 years
because of the two
previous bitter cold
winters. Freezing and
staying indoors for five
months was too much for
this Florida transplant.
"I still enjoy antique
and classic car auctions
and the old car hobby. I
became a member of
(the Veteran Motor Car
Club of America) when I
came to Punta Gorda,
which is the busiest car
club I've ever belonged
to. There's such a variety
of events for me to
choose from.
"The biggest thrill,
car-wise, in my life was
participating in the first
Great American Race. It
started in California and
finished in Indianapolis.
I was the navigator in
my 1939 Ford four-door
convertible sedan for
the entire race. Upon
arriving at Indy, all of
the cars entered in the
event got to drive two
laps around the track.
This was very rare, as


most groups granted
this privilege are only
allowed a single lap.
"Over the years, I've
been the proud owner
of many classic cars.
The car hobby and great
people that I've met
through it have been a
wonderful experience in
my life."
How about that! Not
many people have had a
fun background such as
Mrs. Barrett. Look for
her and, as she deems
it, the "Bronze Baby
Bird," at collector car
activities.
