work on Honore extension nears


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS COLUMNIST

One of the most significant
construction projects to affect
South Sarasota County traffic
flow is scheduled to start
within the first six months of
2010.
Officially titled the Honore-
Pinebrook Extension, it is the
construction of the Honore
Avenue relief road from Pine-
brook Road at Laurel Road to
State Road 681, then linking to
the existing Honore Avenue in
Sarasota and extending north
to Manatee County.
This 3.8-mile north-south
road is intended to relieve
congestion on both the inter-
state and Tamiami Trail dur-
ing closures and in the event
of hurricane evacuation. Des-
tined to eventually be four
lanes, initially two lanes will
be completed, by mid-2012.
Sarasota County has pur-
chased 43 acres to construct
the southern extension road
right of way with ponds to col-
lect stormwater from McCann
Holdings, part of Palmer
Ranch Holdings. The land
cost $3.5 million. A section of
the Honore Avenue new high-
way will be built using two
existing lanes of Interstate 75.
Next year, the Florida De-
partment of Transportation
will begin construction of a
new 1-mile section of Inter-
state 75's southbound lanes in
the existing median. It will
begin 500 feet north of Cow
Pen Slough Bridge and rejoin
the existing Interstate a half a
mile north of the Laurel Road
interchange. It is scheduled
for completion in 2012.
Within six months, Sara-
sota County will commence

ICLEI dues irk local patriots

John Saunders, Kathy Bolam and
Rich Angley presented a petition
last month urging city council to
withdraw from membership in a
United Nations-sponsored plan-
ning organization.


A group of citizens submit-
ted a petition with 79 names
recently protesting Venice's
membership in a United Na-
tions-sponsored planning or-
ganization that promotes
"smart growth" and other envi-
ronmental causes.
"It's a foreign, international
organization. And I believe if
the citizens of Venice knew


that the local government was
a member of this organization
that has its roots in the United
Nations that they would be
very upset with you," said Ven-
ice resident Kathy Bolam at a
city council meeting.
Bolam said it took three
people two hours on election
day to come up with the signa-
tures.
"We were testing the wat-
ers," she said.
Earlier this year the city


agreed to pay annual dues in
the amount of $600 to the In-
ternational Council for Local
Environmental Initiatives,
which calls itself "ICLEI Lo-

Community Foundation of
Sarasota as an entry in its
Nonprofit Resource Center's
annual charity contest titled

one of three winners earlier
this month, winning in the
"Donor" category and netting
$500 for the preschool to
donate to the Venice Cat

Christmas, Frankie found a home
with a Russian woman in North

Two resign

from tax

oversight

committee
BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Gary Budway and Rosemary
Vauzanges, appointees of May-
or Ed Martin, announced their
resignations from the city's
Citizen Tax Oversight (1-Cent
Sales Tax) Committee and
Citizen Oversight (Bond Issue)
Committee on Dec. 17.
The two said the commit-
tees had become impotent and
served as a "rubber stamp" for
city policymakers.
Budway and Vauzanges re-
signed one day after the city of
Venice and Sarasota County
School Board announced
plans to hold public meetings
and move forward with ap-
provals to build a community
performing arts center as part
of the Venice High rebuild.
Documents were distrib-
uted Wednesday that will be
voted on by the governmental
bodies in January, including a
draft interlocal agreement and
draft joint-use agreement.
Budway and Vauzanges,
president and secretary, re-
spectively, of the Venice Tax-
payers League, denounced the
performing arts center as a
low-priority expenditure. Bud-
way threatened to sue the city
if it moved forward with the
center.
'Futile activities'
Budway expressed frustra-
tion in his letter of resignation.
"It is obvious to me that the
committee is powerless and
ignored," Budway wrote. "It is
impossible to perform any of
the oversight actions as de-
scribed in council resolution
98-2 setting out the commit-
tee's parameters.

Burglary alert
The Venice Police De-
partment wants to alert cit-
izens about a rash of day-
time residential burglaries.
The VPD has received
about 10 complaints.
These burglaries generally
have occurred between
noon and 6 p.m. Entry is
typically gained through
the rear of the residence.
The VPD believes that
the suspects may be
watching the neighbor-
hoods, as most have oc-
curred shortly after the res-
idents left the home. Items
taken have been mostly
jewelry and cash.
Contact the VPD at 486-
2444 to report any suspi-
cious persons or vehicles.

Know the laws for

sidewalk cyclists

BY MONTY ANDREWS
GUEST WRITER

"Is it legal for me to ride my bicycle on the
sidewalk?" This is the question I am asked
most by local cyclists. The short answer is
"yes." There are, however, some rules that
must be followed.
The state of Florida's bicycle traffic laws,
which the city of Venice complies with,
state that when riding on a sidewalk or
crosswalk, a cyclist has the rights and
duties of a pedestrian. However, equip-
ment and passenger regulations still apply
on a sidewalk, since the cyclist is still a
"bicycle rider." Remember, sidewalks are
not designed for bicycle speeds, so com-
mon sense must also be applied.
A cyclist riding on a sidewalk or cross-
walk must yield the right of way to pedestri-
ans and must give an audible warning
before passing. When approaching on a
sidewalk, a cyclist must obey the applicable
pedestrian control signal. If no pedestrian
signal is provided, the cyclist may proceed
in accordance with the signal indications for
the parallel roadway traffic flow.
Ride safe, ride smart.

Want better schools? Make teachers better


O ne of the biggest education sto-
ries in Florida may have gotten
short shrift from the media last
month.
That's the decision by the Bill &
Melinda Gates Foundation to give
$100 million in grants to the Hills-
borough County school district to
develop innovative ways to improve
teacher effectiveness. In the view of
Sen. Nancy Detert, R-Venice, the an-
nouncement of the grant program
didn't get its due.
That's because the experiment
could have a big impact on school
systems and funding for education
throughout Florida in years to come.
Detert pays close attention to these
things. She has been heavily involved
in education for many years, includ-
ing time as a Sarasota County School
Board member; is a strong advocate
for better public schools; and serves
as the chair of the Senate Education


Committee. She knows her business,
so it's wise to pay attention.
In late November, the foundation
announced it was investing a total of
$335 million in three public school
districts and five charter school net-
works in Los Angeles. According to
the Washington Post, this is equiva-
lent to the size of the Obama admin-
istration's school reform efforts, so it's
a big deal.
The largest grant went to Hills-
borough, the eighth largest school
district in the country, with 191,000
students in an area roughly the size of
Rhode Island. It encompasses urban
Tampa, as well as suburban and rural
schools. And it is already what we'd
consider a successful system: The dis-
trict has gotten an '"A"' rating from the
state in three of the last four years.
How to make it better?
Better teachers.
Melinda Gates, the wife of Micro-


soft co-founder Bill Gates, told a press
conference the foundation had dis-
covered after a decade of work and an
investment of $2 billion on school
reform projects that good teachers
were the key to improvement.
To sum it up, she said, "Let's focus
on the thing that actually matters the
most, which is the teacher."
The overall plan, which has the
backing of teachers unions, is to use
the carrot of additional money to
move professionals and school sys-
tems toward a new set of goals: mak-
ing the best teachers mentors for oth-
ers, giving them the toughest assign-
ments, refocusing on training and
redefining tenure.
The teacher evaluation process will
rely far more on student perfor-
mance.
A "performance-based career lad-
der" will make tenure more difficult; a
fourth year may be added. New


teachers will have trained mentors,
one-on-one support and weekly
observations for two years.
Pay-for-performance will be
refined. It will include new measure-
ments of student achievement, evalu-
ations and career ladder progress. The
plan also would give principals more
power to hire and fire teachers, based
on performance.
The public also will be able to
review performance with a more-
detailed set of scorecards.
Gates said reform won't take place
overnight.
"Any time you're trying to change a
system and have some innovative
approaches, it's going to take some
long-term work," she said.
It will be well worth keeping an eye
on the experiment, because any im-
provements and successes could be-
come models for school systems
throughout the state.


Time is now to take Advantage


GRACE MARIE TURNER
GUEST COLUMNIST


From now through the end
of the year, seniors have a
chance to enroll in a Medicare
prescription drug plan, and
those who already are enrolled
can switch plans.
With Congress debating
many changes to the Medicare
program, seniors should try to
get the most out of this year's
open-enrollment period.
The Medicare prescription
drug benefit is different from
most government programs
because seniors have a choice
of private drug plans that
receive subsidies from the fed-
eral government to provide
their drug coverage. This gives
seniors a wide range of options
in premiums, copayments,
and drug choices.
The drug benefit program is
designed to keep prices low by
forcing private plans to com-
pete against one another. This
has resulted in greater choice
and flexibility. And because
seniors are smart shoppers,
the drug benefit has proven to
be among the most cost-effec-
tive government programs in
history.
When the program was cre-
ated in 2003, lawmakers pre-
dicted seniors would pay
about $44 per month for drug
coverage in 2009. According to
the Kaiser Family Foundation,
the average monthly premium
in 2009 was only $35. Further,
the program is saving taxpay-
ers money, coming in nearly
40 percent under budget so far.
Some lawmakers, though,
want to change the program
because they don't like in-
volvement by private plans,
despite the fact that the pro-
gram is highly popular with
seniors. This could mean that
seniors with low incomes
would have access to fewer
drugs while others wind up
paying higher premiums.
The health reform bill that
recentlywas passed by the U.S.
House of Representatives
allows the federal government
to negotiate prices directly
with pharmaceutical compa-
nies. This might sound desir-


able, but the government
doesn't negotiate. With the rest
of Medicare, it dictates prices
and imposes benefit restric-
tions rather than relying on
competition and consumer
choice to contain costs.
The legislation also would
force lower-income seniors to
get their drug coverage
through Medicaid rather than
Medicare, giving them no
choice of private plans and
forcing them into a program in
which the government deter-
mines what drugs will and will
not be available to them.
This could save the federal
government money, but other
changes in the legislation
would result in higher drug
costs for other seniors.
According to the nonpartisan
Congressional Budget Office,
these changes could result in a
20 percent increase in pre-
scription drug premium costs
for Medicare beneficiaries over
the next decade.
Government price manipu-
lation also poses an enormous
threat to the future of drug
innovation. If drug companies
are forced to sell their products
at below-market prices, they'll
look less attractive to investors
and thus have less capital for
research and development of
new medicines.
For now, though, the
Medicare drug benefit is a
good deal for seniors all the
more reason to take advantage
of this open-enrollment peri-
od. Many plans have lowered
their co-payments and elimi-
nated deductibles. Others now
provide coverage in the infa-
mous "doughnut hole."
Those who are Internet-
savvy can sign up or switch
plans by visiting
www.Medicare.gov. Using the
"Medicare Plan Finder,"
seniors can compare how dif-
ferent drug plans stack up
against one another. Those
without Web access can call
(800) Medicare and speak to a
customer service representa-
tive.
Just remember to act before
the end the year, since the
open-enrollment period ends
on Dec. 31. And pay close
attention to what Congress is
doing that might change
options, and premiums, for
seniors in the future.

dent of the Galen Institute, a

reform.

There is a free lunch

Freebies. Can you explain to me why the Venice Police
Department receives free coffee at 7-Eleven and free food at
McDonalds? Don't we pay their salaries? Isn't it their job to pro-
tect these businesses? I don't understand. I have to pay for my
coffee. I have to buy my food. They're making $50,000 to $60,000
a year. I think the police chief should be aware that these police
officers are not paying for food or drinks.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Chief Julie Williams said the department has no for-
mal policy on free food and drink. Officers are expected to use their
own judgment and not abuse the generosity of the businesses.


Meaningless. What does
the death sentence mean? For
convicted killer Michael King, in
the murder of Denise Amber
Lee he received death penalty,
but the paper says that it may be
15 years before he's executed. It
also says there are eight death-
row inmates in the Sarasota
County jail now. One was sen-
tenced to death in 1986. The
taxpayers are housing, feeding
and clothing these criminals for
all these years to give them a
comfortable life. Do they de-
serve that? Also, many were
given life sentences but I truly
believe they should have gotten
death. They are living comfort-
ably off of taxpayers for 40 to 50
years. Some have escaped and
gone back to their old ways
before being caught again. Our
prisons are at overflow. Instead
of executing these criminals, we
take the money of people who
have lost their homes in this
economy and give it to crimi-
nals and build more jails. At
least prisoners know where they
going to sleep tonight, where
their meal is coming from and
have clean clothes. That's more
than some of us have. Tighten
up and get rid of these people
who are sitting in prisons for
years.
Thank you. A big thanks to
the youth professional group
and Hazeltine Nursery for the
wonderful decorations on our
avenue. It is a beautiful Christ-
mas greeting to everyone. A big
thanks to them.
He paid. I want to leave a
comment for Mr. Bennett
Gross. I read his article in the


Let 'em


Have It


paper this weekend of all the
accomplishments of city
council. I've got a real problem
with No. 13. I know our mayor
likes to take a bow for every-
thing and how he has accom-
plished so much in the city, but
not on my dime. Mr. Gross
thanks council for moving Sat-
urday's farmers market back to
Centennial Park. Well, that cost
me $3,000. My name is Greg
Silvia and I own Althea's Rest-
aurant. It cost $3,000 out of my
pocket, not out of council's
pocket, to put hot water in the
city's bathrooms on Venice
Avenue so the farmers market
meets health department
standards and move back to
Centennial Park. So, Mr. Gross,
on No. 13, you might not want
to give that award to the won-
derful council. They can make


the check out to me if they
want to take credit for it. Get it
right next time. It was my
money, not council's. This
council couldn't do anything in
this city for business if they
tried. Somebody has to do it
for them.
You bet. Yes, Florida should
legalize more forms of gam-
bling, especially in the city of
Venice. Down by Sharky's on the
island, the city owns the adjoin-
ing land where it just demol-
ished a wastewater treatment
plant and is planning another
park, which we don't need here
in Venice. Why not bring in a
five-star hotel with a gambling
casino and generate millions
and millions of dollars for the
city of Venice and take a per-
centage, like you do for
Sharky's? This city would be out
of debt in six months. The city of
Venice needs to trust the times
and legalize gambling.
EDITOR'S NOTE: It would take a
change in state law to make such
a project possible, and then
approval by the city.
Step up. I've lived in Venice
for more than 30 years. I own
my own home and I see that
there are more rental proper-
ties and houses on everybody's
street. Isn't there a certain per-
centage of rental properties
allowed on any street? These
people are buying these hous-
es and renting them out to
aliens, illegal aliens, to people
who don't even live in this
country. There are supposed to
be two people for every bed-
room. My neighbor has a two-
bedroom home and there are
10 people living in the house.
I've contacted him. He ignores
me. Code enforcement or Ven-
ice City Council needs to step
up and do something before
the whole neighborhood be-
comes un-American.
EDITOR'S NOTE: There's no city
regulation on the number of
houses on a street that can be
rented, but there are rules about
occupancy. Call code enforce-
ment, 486-2626, ext. 22007 or
22010.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS

A season for miracles

Editor:
This time of year seems to have the ability to
change people in many ways. I am not sure if it starts
the day before Thanksgiving and then starts to wind
down a couple of days into the New Year.
The time line is not the important thing about the
season it is the way people change, even for a short
time. Humanity seems to come closer together and
more goodness appears through acts of kindness and
sharing.
So, I would like to share my Christmas miracle with
you in hopes you will believe this is a special time of year.
My daughter was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer
and has gone through many chemo sessions, which
made her to sick to function for several days after-
wards. During all this she held down a full-time,
demanding job and held her family together. She is a
very strong-willed woman. She has packed a good
deal of living into her 34 years, from helping her
church to helping to establish a program for children
with autism.
My wife and I have prayed, along with friends and
acquaintances, and today my son-in-law called to let
us know that the tumors in my daughter's liver are
gone. Yes, the doctors and the medicine played an
important role in her recovery. So did prayer.
I want to thank all who helped in my daughter's
recovery. I hope a miracle finds your family this
Christmas season.

Someday they'll
all be home

Editor:
Listening to the beau-
tiful Christmas music as
they lit the tree at
Rockefeller Center filled
the house with peace and
love appreciating the
peace of the season,
when a young man start-
ed singing "I'll be Home
for Christmas." His voice
was quiet and filled with
emotion.
I once more recalled
the memory of our bro-
ther sending a record to


mother from the South
Pacific singing this song.
He was so young, so filled
with love for his country
and, always, his mother.
No, he never made it
home. The plane went
down on returning from
a mission and was never
found.
All of us girls, brother,
dad and mother kept
hoping they would be
found; but no, we had
only fond memories of a
young boy who did not
have time to grow to
manhood. He lived in
each of our thoughts.


And we know that
each Christmas time
when we hear his song,
"I'll be Home for Christ-
mas," we will find him
waiting for us singing
that when we will all be
one together come Christ-
mas in the future.

Ann R. Hawkins
Venice
Parade has and
hasn't changed
Editor:
Another city of Venice
Holiday Parade (the 34th)
has now passed, and it
was a wonderful evening.
The people came, partic-
ipated and left with a
warm feeling of commu-
nity pride. It speaks well
of our community when
people can place chairs
on the avenue the Tues-
day night before the pa-
rade and the chairs will
still be there on Saturday.
Back in the beginning,
the parade drew many
fewer people to the ave-
nue, enough that my
mom could make cook-
ies. Nokomis Groves do-
nated oranges and
orange juice and Publix
donated candy canes.
Now, more than 35,000
people come to this pa-
rade, and it is televised
live on a local TV station.
Many organizations, such
as the Lions Club and
Venice High School, are
able to have concessions
as fundraisers.
Many thanks to the
parade committee for
their time, effort and
funds to arrange such a
great parade, and thank
you to the police, fire
department and public
works for their work that
night. And just a re-
minder if you wish to


see the best of the best of
the holiday parades past,
please stop by the Tri-
angle Inn. During the
month of December, the
Inn will be running a
montage showing the
parades, including the
Ringling elephants.

Is the Grinch
in charge?
Editor:
I just can't help but
make a comment on how
drab and unfestive it is to
drive down 41 between
Venice Avenue and Cent-
er Road. We have gobs of
furniture stores and car
dealerships not one of
them has the courtesy to
hang a Christmas light or
put up a holiday decora-
tion.
I find it troubling that
these businesses make so
much money off of us
and yet they can't con-
tribute one drop of fes-
tive spirit. Not one string
of lights, or as at Mat-
thews-Currie Ford, little
figures that the children
love to see that make it
seem a lot more like the
Christmas season.
I can remember when
businesses used to take
pride in decorating their
property. I find it a dis-
grace and want to see it
in print. I am certain
other people feel the
same way.

Margaret De Fer
Venice
Hey, Santa,
can you help?
Editor:
Warm greetings to our
early arrival snowbirds.


Advantage plans not for everyone


(Please come sooner and
stay longer.) We're happy
to see you.
Kudos to VRMC for
placing in the top 100
heart centers in the na-
tion. (Idea: a human
cloning center.)
Could we get Santa
Claus to give Len Bram-
ble money to get LED
bulbs for the island's
crosswalk signals? The
regular bulbs blow out
too soon.
Maybe Santa Claus
can give us great eco-
nomic conditions for the
summers also.
Two thumbs up for the
Rialto Shopping Center
remodel.
May we all have a
wonderful holiday sea-
son and a prosperous
2010.

Why we do
what we do
Editor:
Tonight as I left the
Venice Art Center and
looked around at the cre-
ativity and the quality we
represent I was humbled,
only to come home to my
husband making rum
balls, which he had me
taste. They are rolled in
powdered sugar and I
was fearful as to the
mess.
I first tried to make a
paper holder for them
and suddenly thought of
Tonya Sauppe, VAC chair:
"We are a nonprofit tax
write-off ... I called Kil-
win's and spoke to the
manager, Tim. I asked
him if he had 120 candy
holders. He said, "Please
come in and ask for Tim;
we are open until 11."
As Steve and I drove
down Venice Avenue and
saw the candle-lit street,
with all of the shops
open, the many jazz per-
formers and people

walking brought such a
sense of belonging within
a wonderful community.
I walked into Kilwin's
prepared to give my
"nonprofit, tax write-off"
speech, and Tim said, "It
is about community; just
remember us when look-
ing for chocolate and ice
cream, and tell your hus-
band thanks from me."
As I walked out to the
busy street, I truly felt the
presence of a working
community, with every-
one hoping the next one
succeeds.
I love our small town
of Venice. I love support-
ing our Venice Art Center.
This is why we do what
we do.

BY JOHN BURTON
GUEST COLUMNIST

Recently this paper
published a column by
Kathy Winans, the execu-
tive director of United
Health Care in Florida, ex-
tolling the virtues of Medi-
care Advantage plans.
United Health Care
sells Medicare Advantage
plans. She did not men-
tion that an Advantage
Plan gets a set amount
from Medicare each
month to take care of
your health-care needs.
Think about that. It
gets the money whether
or not it provides you
care. How strongly is it
motivated to provide you
with expensive care for
which it can expect no
further payment from
Medicare?
For example, if you
were to call the Advant-
age Plan complaining of
a severe headache, do
you think it would be
more likely to advise you
to go to the emergency
room or to suggest you
take an aspirin and rest?
It is true that persons
entitled to Medicare can
save premium dollars by
joining an Advantage
Plan. It is also true that
for many plans you can
go to the doctor or other
health-care provider of
your choice. If you are in
excellent health, you may
want to risk it for a year. It
may work out fine.
However, even if the
plan accepts any doctor,
your doctor is not re-
quired to accept the plan
or, if the doctor does
accept the plan, he or she
can drop it at will. If your
doctor decides to no
longer participate in the
plan once you have
joined, you must pay out
of your own pocket, or
find a doctor who will
accept the plan.
Do doctors drop plans
once some of their pa-
tients join? My experi-
ence, based on years of
working for and with


Medicare and assisting
Medicare beneficiaries
with their health insur-
ance problems, is that
doctors often drop plans
for a variety of reasons.
The main reasons are
that the plan pays too lit-
tle, pays it too late or sets
up too many arbitrary
conditions for payment
authorization. Health-
care providers want to be
paid what they consider a
fair fee, they want to be
paid timely and they do
not want artificial limits
placed on their medical
judgment. If the Ad-
vantage Plan fails to meet
any of these conditions,
the provider may choose
to end its participation in
the plan.
The same holds true
for institutional provid-
ers such as hospitals. The
hospital may participate
in your chosen plan
when you first enroll, but
may opt out once you
have joined the plan.


You, however, may not
change plans or go back
to regular Medicare until
the once a year "open sea-
son." Open season runs
from Nov. 15 through Dec.
31, with the new plan
choice effective Jan. 1 of
the following year. If your
preferred providers leave
your chosen plan in the
interim, you are stuck in
the plan until January of
the following year.
There is no free lunch. If
you want freedom of
choice for your medical
care, and if you want your


doctor or other provider to
function without unrea-
sonable restraints, regular
Medicare is your best bet.

in," Zavodnyik said.
Dictation
Bolam agreed the organization is,
indeed, helpful. And that's the problem.
"They are very generous to the com-
munity. They give you access to 'green
experts,' facts (sheets), case policies ...
practice manuals, blueprints, every-
thing, and they offer training" in an
effort to indoctrinate followers, she
said.
"Bottom line we ask you to cancel
your membership," Bolam said.
For Nokomis resident Rich Angley,
the issue is about the potential loss of
individual property rights.
He pointed to Zavodnyik's failed
attempt last year to persuade council to
adopt the International Property Main-
tenance Code as an example of how the
organization's efforts came close to
infiltrating local government. ICLEI
supports and promotes the code.
"There are sections (of that code)
that mandated inspection of private
homes," Angley said. "Once you do
that, and have enforcement policies
that back up that, essentially that per-
son has lost his right to that property. If
we lose that property right, we are no
longer a free people.
"The sole purpose of the ICLEI is not
to protect the environment as they
state. Its purpose is to maneuver itself
into and encumber our local govern-
mental structures and strengthen the
hold of world government powers on
every aspect of our lives. Eventually this
will lead to the dissolution of property


rights. That's the goal of ICLEI.
"It sounds like communism. Maybe
we need to think about this."
"It is not an anti-environmental peti-
tion," he added. "We are not against
your efforts to save energy or to protect
our environment. The problem is
membership equates to acceptance of
U.N. program Agenda 21. What we ob-
ject to is use of taxpayer funds to sup-
port an organization with expressed
desires to supersede the authority of
the United States of America and its
constitution."
"It may be the case that most of us
think we should impact the environ-
ment as little as possible," said Sarasota
resident John Saunders. "While Agenda
21 sounds innocuous enough, we have
foreigners trying to dictate what
Americans will do with their property."
Mayoral assurance
Mayor Ed Martin addressed the
ICLEI membership issue earlier in a
Oct. 31 blog on his InsideVeniceFlorida
Web site.
"On the 9th of October, 2007 the pre-
vious city council passed a resolution
which read, in part, 'The City Council of
Venice, Florida, endorses the U.S.
Mayors' Climate Protection Agreement
... and will work in conjunction with
ICLEI Local Governments for Sustain-
ability ... and other appropriate organi-
zations to track the progress and imple-
mentation of this agreement,' wrote
Martin.
"This spring the current council fol-
lowed through on staff recommenda-
tions and paid $600 to join ICLEI and
obtain the Emission Modeling Program
to complete the global emissions in-
ventory.
"It is the city staff's recommendation
to implement the Mayors' Agreement
in stages, this being step one, which
includes ICLEI free training courses
and assistant resource. The city will
work cooperatively with Sarasota City
and county on future steps the council
may approve as they come forward,"
Martin wrote.
Based on that comment, asked a
blogger on Martin's site, "would that
necessitate the passing of their recom-
mended environmental controls with-
out the consent of the local voters?"
"Elected officials would approve any
new policies, etc. in public meetings.
The organization does not impose oth-
ers' wishes on the cities ... to my knowl-
edge," Martin wrote.
In October 2008 city council ap-
proved expenditures in the amount of
$15,000 to join ICLEI and hire a consul-
tant to help complete the city's global
emission inventory.

LOVE from Page 1A


turned away due to space limitations.
Venice Cat Coalition agreed to take
the kittens, finding homes for the two
healthy babies. Frankie, however, had a
useless hind leg that would need
amputation.
The coalition and the preschool had
developed a relationship through a
starving and injured cat that had shown
up on the preschool doorstep a few
years before.
When the children heard about
Frankie, they wanted to meet him and
to help. Frankie visited in late Sep-
tember. It was love at first sight.
The children petted Frankie and
drew his picture. A donation jar was


labeled and a table was set up with
items for sale. It is called "Frankie's Ta-
ble."
Parents and staff have donated both
cash and items to sell. They have also
kept the table almost bare by purchas-
ing the items on it. A garage sale was
held with parents and staff donating
merchandise.
These are tough economic times,
and the families of the children are
struggling. Many have experienced job
loss. But despite this, the children
raised $210.16 toward Frankie's care in
less than two months.
The love and prayers of all Frankie's
supporters have also helped to bring
about a small miracle: Frankie is going
to get to keep his leg.


RESIGN from Page 1A


zens Tax Oversight Committee, is not
oversight.
It is merely providing window
dressing for decisions made after pri-
vate meetings with other interested
parties.
"Therefore with due respect I have
little time to spare for futile activities,
and must withdraw from the commit-
tees. I cannot condone, agree with or be
a party to wasteful expenditures in such
sad economic times being forced on
citizens (and) taxpayers which will
cause higher service fees, increased
sewer and water rates in the coming
years."'
'Not an urgent need'
Vauzanges echoed Budway's com-
ments, saying that the committee is
powerless to provide oversight, alloca-
tion or reallocation of sales tax pro-
ceeds under the council resolution.
She criticized the city and county for
reallocating 1-cent sales tax funds with-
out its input, and moving up the per-
forming art center project from 2015 to
2011.
'At no time were members of the
committee invited to meetings, kept
informed of discussions and decisions
made at those meetings, nor invited to
make any contribution whatsoever to
the interlocal agreement between the
Sarasota School Board and the City of
Venice. Nor were there any open public
meetings in Venice to discuss these
matters.


"Council has chosen to redecorate
the Titanic, rather than buy lifeboats
and life jackets, by gifting $7.5 million
of tax money for a Performing Arts
Center, rather than on very badly need-
ed water and sewer infrastructures.
'A performing arts center is not an
urgent need, whereas water and sewer
processing are vital necessities. Higher
utilities rates, instead of a viable water
processing plant, is hardly in the best
interests of Venice, no matter what it
does (for) those who have brokered this
deal."
Both Budway and Vauzanges used
their personal e-mail accounts to
announce the resignation, a violation
of city policy.

Appreciation
School board officials previously
said that meetings by a special commit-
tee on the performance center have
been open to the public. Budway
attended one of the meetings.
Martin sent a brief e-mail acknowl-
edging the resignations.
"Thank you for notifying us of your
resignation from the Bond Oversight
and One-Cent Oversight committees,"
he wrote to Budway. "We appreciate
your willingness to serve. Although I
recognize your disappointment with
the role of the committees, we think
they can serve their described purpos-
es."

Countywide

addressing

system OK'd

BY CAROL SAKOWITZ
STAFF WRITER

County commission-
ers voted unanimously
Wednesday to approve
an ordinance adding a
county uniform address-
ing system to the county
code, and to cut in half
the fees for addressing
appeals.
The new system
would eliminate duplica-
tion of address numbers
and street names, and
maintain a consistent
numbering system with-
in the county.
Commissioners reiter-
ated their desire to have
staff focus first on number-
ing changes before making
street-name modifica-
tions.
Readdressing is ex-
pected to begin in 18
months at the earliest, and
take about 10 years to
complete, according to
Fire Marshal Jane Ross.
She said the project is
expected to cost about
$80,000 over four to five
years, with the money
being used for advertising
and educational materials.
A key suggestion relat-
ed to businesses along
major thoroughfares, she
said. For example, a busi-
ness whose building
fronts a major road such
as U.S. 41 may have its
entrance located on a
side street, as mandated
by the state Department
of Transportation.
Under the ordinance
originally proposed, the
business address would
have the name of the side
street. Under the approv-
ed measure, the business
can keep its current street
name, even if its number
is changed.
Now, according to Ross
and Fulwider, more atten-
tion can be paid to getting
numbers on buildings so
emergency services can
locate the site of a call.
"Our objective is to
educate, to be proactive,"
Ross said.
The three important
points regarding street
numbers, she said, are to
have them in colors that
contrast with the house
color; to have plain, block
letters (no script); and
post them in a conspicu-
ous place. She also advis-
ed that home and busi-
ness owners make sure
there are no obstacles,
such as awnings or
shrubbery, blocking the
numbers.
"If you can't see it from
the street, emergency ser-
vices can't see it from the
street," they both said.
The first phase in imp-
lementing the system,
Ross said, is unifying the
various addressing data-
bases currently in use.
Sarasota County has 13
databases while "the cit-
ies have multiple address
banks, as well," she said.
Following that, num-
ber and street name
changes will be done on a
grid-by-grid basis going
from south to north.
If an address is chang-
ed, property owners have
the right to appeal. The
fee for such an appeal
before the addressing
program coordinator aft-
er a county-initiated
change is now $75, down
from $150. An appeal to
the addressing review
board is now $250, down
from $500.
Should the property
owner want to appeal to
the county commission,


the fee would be $500,
down from $1,000. Ad-
vertising costs for the
appeal are extra.


Red tide thickening off Nokomis Beach


BY STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER


Sarasota County officials is-
sued a precautionary alert that
the red-tide levels rose along
Nokomis Beach this week.
High levels of the single-cell
algal organism Karenia brevis,
better known as red tide can
wreak havoc at high densities
along Florida's Gulf Coast with
fish kills, and can lead to respira-
tory irritations in humans.
According to county officials
and state researchers at the
Florida Fish andWildlife Institute,
low-medium levels of red tide -
111,000 cells per liter of water -
were detected along the shore at
Nokomis Beach this week.
"We believe it is a fresh bloom
blown (into Nokomis)," said
Cindy Heil, a senior scientist
with the institute.
Red tide blooms are a natural
phenomenon to Gulf waters
typically in the fall. So far this
year, she said, the occurrence of
red tide is "patchy." In October,
Sanibel and beaches south
experienced a bloom affecting
its shorelines.
The state researchers will
post a full report today on the
institute's Web site at http://
research.myfwc.com.
Low levels of the algae were
detected off Siesta Beach, North
Jetty, Venice Beach, Service Club
Park and the Venice Fishing Pier.


RED TIDE CELLS PER LITER OF
WATER AND POTENTIAL IMPACTS
PRESENT: background levels of 1,000 cells or less. No
impacts.
VERY LOW (a): more than a 1,000 to less than 5,000.
Possible respiratory irritation.
VERY LOW (b): more than 5,000 to less than 10,000.
Possible respiratory irritation and shellfish harvesting closures.
LOW (a): more than 10,000 to less than 50,000. Respiratory
irritation, but chlorophyll levels too low to be detected by satellites.
LOW (b) more than 50,000 to less than 100,000. Respiratory
irritation, may lead to fish kills, and bloom chlorophyll probably
detected by satellites.
MEDIUM: more than 100,000 to less than 1 million.
Respiratory irritation and probability of fish kills.
HIGH: more than 1 million cells per liter. Respiratory irrita-
tions, fish kills and discoloration of the water.
(Source: the Florida Fish and Wildlife Institute at
http://research.myfwc.com)
For more information about red tide, visit the institute's Web
site at http://research.myfwc.com.
For up-to-date reports, Sarasota County Health Department
officials recommend people visit http://coolgate.mote.org/beach
conditions/ or contact the health department at 861-6133. To
report red tide outbreaks, call the Sarasota County Parks and
Recreation Red Tide Hot Line at 346-0079.


Other Sarasota County area
beaches, including those on
Manasota Key, reported very
low levels of the algae.
As of Thursday, Sarasota
County lifeguards reported no
signs of respiratory irritations at
Nokomis or other beaches due
to the red tide.
When asked what their advice
would be to someone sensitive to


respiratory irritations, both Heil
and Chuck Henry, environmental
administrator for the Sarasota
County Health Department, said
people should check updates and
weather reports.
"Check the beach reports,"
Henry suggested.
When winds and currents
drive red-tide blooms ashore,
the toxins generally are released


when the delicate algae cells
break up due to wave action.
Younger blooms tend to be less
toxic than older blooms.
Research shows red-tide algal
blooms originate 15 to 50 miles
out in the Gulf. They are more
affected by the turnover of Gulf
waters in the fall due to windier
conditions. Wind and weather
conditions can affect the currents
along the shallow Gulf shelf.
If the winds are blowing east
to west, then the red tide proba-
bly will not affect those enjoying
the beaches. However, if the
organisms break up in the surf,
then people might feel their
effects, the officials said.
Sarasota County health offi-
cials offer the following advice:
Red-tide events do not pro-
duce urgent public health con-
cerns. The effects can cause
mild and short-lived respiratory
symptoms. If affected, people
should leave the red-tide area
and will usually see the symp-
toms disappear. Those with
chronic respiratory ailments are
advised to avoid areas with con-
centrations of red tide.
A rash can sometimes occur
after contact with affected wat-
er, and usually goes away within
24 hours. After swimming in an
affected area, it is a good idea to
rinse off with clean, fresh water.
Swallowed water is unlikely to
cause health effects.

Grant commits to Eastern Illinois


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

As a freshman, Venice High's Justin
Grant needed talked into playing high
school football.
Four years later, he doesn't need con-
vincing to play college football.
The senior committed to attend and
play football for Eastern Illinois
University in Charleston, Ill., on a full ath-
letic scholarship.
"I didn't even want to play football
my freshman year," said Grant. "Trey
(Burton) and Brandon (Wilkinson) kind
of got me into it. They said 'you should
go out. You are an athlete and you will
like it.'"
"I fell in love with it right off the bat,"
said the 18-year-old Grant, who didn't
start playing until his freshman year.
The Panthers compete in the Football
Championship Subdivision, formerly


known as Division 1-AA
and play in the Ohio Valley
Conference.
Last season, the Pan-
thers finished with a 8-4
Overall record and 6-2 in
the conference. They lost in
the opening round of the
Grant FCS playoffs to top-seed
Southern Illinois.
"It's not too big, not too small," Grant
said about Eastern Illinois. "I will go
there and fit in well. They want me at
safety and I'm familiar with the posi-
tion. I like the coaches and they treat
me like I am one of their kids already."
"They have a good program and the
coaches are excited about Justin," said
Venice head coach John Peacock. "They
have a need for that position and he is
the No. 1 free safety on their board. It's
always good when you are going to a
school that you know you are wanted


and No. 1 priority."
Other colleges interested in the 6-foot,
185-pound Grant were Troy and Middle
Tennessee.
Grant's commitment makes the fifth
Venice High football player to receive a
full athletic scholarship to attend college
in the fall.
Grant started his senior season as the
starting tailback but moved to defense
the second half of the season.
He would rather play defense.
"This year I had to switch over to
offensive side and getting hit and I was
tired of getting hit," said Grant. "They
want me at safety so I get to hit people.
Instead of me taking punishment, I can
go punish people."
Grant won't officially sign his letter of
intent until National Signing Day on
Feb. 3.

Lackluster Venice downs Bayshore


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR

A win in name only.
That's how to describe
Venice's 53-21 wrestling victory
over Bayshore on Wednesday
at Venice High.
Despite keeping their dual-
meet record perfect at 7-0, the
outcome of the match didn't
sit well with coaches.
Without Venice's six wins
by forfeit, which were good
enough for 36 of their points,
the Indians would have lost
to the Bruins as they won five
of the eight matches actually
wrestled.
"It is the worst we've ever
wrestled," said Venice assis-
tant coach Dave Porvaznik.
"We had a lack of effort, lack
of heart and lack of desire. You
can't just expect to win because
you have a bunch of forfeits.
The kids, who have to wres-
tle on the mat, have to show up
to wrestle. They have to go out
there and do more than just
put their head in the ground.
Raising his record to 14-2
was Jeremy Erickson, who
moved up to 130 pounds and
closed out his match in a hurry
with a pin in one minute.


match, Venice's Mike Herndon
notched a pin over Kyle Fagan
in 55 seconds. It was the
Venice football player's first
time ever wrestling.
Venice is off until next year
when the Indians wrestle at
Manatee High on Jan. 6.

GIRLS WEIGHTLIFTING


Lady Indians take second in quad meet


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


Venice grabbed two first-places and
five runner-up spots but it wasn't enough
as Charlotte edged the Lady Indians, 51-
50, for first place in the quad meet against
North Port and Sarasota on Thursday
afternoon at Venice High's Wellness
Center.
A total of 126 lifters took part in the
meet, in which North Port was third with
36 points followed by Sarasota's 18 points.
"It was great to have four schools there
with 126 kids letting everybody compete
and everyone get on the platform," said
Venice coach Nancy Tessier.
Although the longtime coach wanted a
different overall result.
"I think they just need to work harder
and do better," said Tessier. "Some of the
girls played it really, really safe and went
in really low in weights. If they went in
where they should have been they would
have done better."
Despite taking second in the second
meet of the season, Tessier was happy
with the individual results.
Taking first for the Lady Indians were
Kara Dooling and Emily Daniels in the
129- and 154-pound weight classes as the
duo, who are returning state qualifiers,


increased their totals on the season by 15
pounds.
Dooling increased her total by lifting
140 pounds in bench competition and
135 pounds in clean and jerk for a total of
275 pounds while Daniels lifted 110
pounds in the bench and blew away the
competition in the clean and jerk power-
ing up 160 pounds as her nearest com-
petitor lifted 135 pounds.
"We took a lot of first and second
places and placed really well," said
Tessier. "The veterans did well and some
of the new girls really improved by 10 to
15 pounds which was impressive."
Grabbing second place for the Lady
Indians were Lauren Thomas (110
pounds), Taylor Capasso (119), Amanda
Chappel (129), Daniela Cardenas (169)
and Kaitlyn Beck (UNL).
Capasso also raised her total by 15
pounds by lifting 90 pounds in the bench
and 120 pounds in the clean and jerk.
Venice will compete in at least a quad
meet on Dec. 30 at Port Charlotte High
against Port Charlotte, Avon Park and
North Port and possibly Lemon Bay,
Sarasota and Sebring.

GULF COAST RALLIES OVER VENICE: Naples
Gulf Coast outscored Venice 33-11 in the second
half to rally from a five-point deficit en route to a 55-

Naples Gulf Coast.
The Lady Sharks (8-0 overall, 4-0 district) made
25-of-35 from the foul line while Venice missed 6-
of-13 from the line.


"We started the third quarter under control but
missed too many foul shots," said Venice coach Joe
Whelton. "We just couldn't score and all of sudden
they got hot and took control of the game. We need
to play for 32 minutes and we don't. It's a lack of
concentration."
Sophomore Juliana Cavallaro led Venice (5-4
overall, 2-1 district) with 16 points.

Rams hand Indians another loss


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


Despite losing three of his first four
games, Venice High boys basketball
coach Steve Cavallaro isn't upset.
The latest loss was a 47-41 setback
to Riverview on Thursday night at
Riverview High.
The Rams hit 10-of-12 free throws in
the final two minutes to pull away from
the Indians for a 47-41 victory.
"I am happy because we are not that
far off," said Cavallaro. "You can still see
the rusty stuff. How many layups did
we miss? How many free throws did we
miss? We did a much better job on the
turnovers. As soon as we knock the rust
off, we will be all right."
Venice reduced its turnovers from 31
against Manatee to just 18 against the
Rams (5-3).
"They are flat out working their tails
off," said Cavallaro. "How do you get
upset at that? There wasn't a kid on the
floor tonight that didn't give us 100 per-
cent effort. I can't be upset."
Venice trailed by 10 points at half-
time but cut the deficit to two points,
37-35 with 2:55 left in the fourth quarter
on a layup off a rebound by Omari
Phillips.
Riverview's Jeremy Jones, who came
off the bench, sank 7-of-8 foul shots
over the next minute to give the Rams a
44-39 lead with 52.2 seconds left. Three
more foul shots closed out the scoring.
Venice outscored Riverview, 26-22 in
the second half. The Indians were hurt
by rebounding giving Riverview sec-
ond-chance points and layups.
In the first quarter, scoring was at a
premium as Riverview led 8-5.
The Rams increased their advantage
to 13-6 with 7:02 left in the second
quarter. Venice then strung together
nine straight points including seven


points from leading scorer Clay Burton.
His tip-in with 5:02 left gave the Indians
their only lead, 15-13.
Riverview closed out the remainder
of the first half with a 12-0 scoring run to
give the Rams a 25-15 halftime cushion.
"That is trying to get basketball legs
back," said Cavallaro about the scoring
drought. "We were fatigued. The major-
ity of our turnovers came when we
were fatigued."
Venice chipped away at the deficit by
outscoring Riverview, 13-8, in the third
quarter.
Riverview's Eric Traver, who had 14
points, scored four points to open the
fourth quarter to give the Rams a 37-28
advantage.
However, the Indians scored seven
consecutive points including four by
Phillips and three by Burton setting up
the final three minutes.
Burton had eight rebounds while
Phillips added six rebounds.
In the junior varsity game, Quaheem
Kapinski scored 14 points in the
Indians' 69-37 loss.
Venice plays at Booker on Dec. 22.

in 1982 from Columbus, Ind.,
where he was supervisor of

ing the Korean and Vietnam

POLICE BEAT


Woman fakes
abduction
An 18-year-old woman
toldVenice Police Depart-
ment detectives that on
Dec. 10 a man forced her
into her own car near The
Soda Fountain, drove her
to an unknown location
and let her out. She said
she walked to a Shell gas
station, met up with an
unknown man and got a
ride back to downtown
Venice.
She went back to The
Soda Fountain because
she said she knew the
man would leave her car
there.
Later, she admitted
she'd made the whole
thing up because she
didn't want her mother
and boyfriend to find out
that she had sexual con-
tact with the man.
Jennifer Masella, 900
block East Gondola Drive,
Venice, was arrested
and charged with mak-
ing a false report to law
enforcement authorities
and giving a false state-
ment to a public servant.
Her bond was set at $240.
Domestic bar fight
According to a Sara-
sota County Sheriff's
Office report, an alterca-
tion between a woman
and her estranged hus-
band at the Plantation
Golf & Country Club led
to his arrest.
The woman was at the
bar eating dinner when
she ordered a drink for
her husband, who was
seated at a table in the
bar area.
Her husband refused
the drink. About 10 min-
utes later he approached
her at the bar and said,
"You are a dead woman."
An argument ensued
and the man grabbed
the victim's arms and
began pulling her off
the barstool. She grabbed
his arms, attempting to
push him away.
The country club staff
called 9-1-1.
The bartender told a
deputy that she saw the
man approach the victim
and grab her arms. She
also said he balled up his
fists and waved them at
the victim in a threaten-
ing manner.
The man told the
deputy that he had
approached his wife at
the bar, but he said she
attacked him. He claimed
marks on his left forearm
were from the attack.
Donald Francis Woods,
75, 300 block North
Cerromar Way, Venice,
was arrested and charged
with domestic battery. He
received no bond.

Feeding the hungry in Venice

IBY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR
Imagine creating a banquet and inviting the homeless and hungry to
be your guests.
That was Carol Prichard's vision. She even wanted to go a step further
and develop relationships with those who had fallen on hard times.
Prichard is part of the Christian Justice and Social Concerns commit-
tee at St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Venice.
"We checked and found there weren't many options for people to get
meals," she said. "And some of those options came with strings
attached."
Prichard and the committee contacted social service agencies in the
Venice area and found there definitely was a need.
"We wanted the dinners to be an interfaith effort," she said. "The
Venice Interfaith Community Association was on board, and cur-
.rently there are 12 churches participating by supplying funds or
hosting dinners.
"With more than 40 churches in Osprey, Laurel, Nokomis and
Venice, one might wonder why so few are helping feed the hungry
among us."
It's believed some churches may be so small
They lack the resources.
Others, however, want to

Still, other churches wish to feed the body and the soul, insisting those who are physically hungry listen to
a sermon before giving them food.
Not so at St. Mark's, which hosts a community dinner every other week.
"Our church embraces feeding the hungry," said Jim Puryear, associate rector. "We don't preach to
them because they are here to be fed. It's a community dinner."
Puryear said St. Mark's parishioners are warriors of love.
"We're living out the gospel at these dinners rather than shouting it out," he said. "Our
responsibility is to make Venice better than it was yesterday."
And that is in keeping withVICA's goal to feed, acknowledge and accept its community din-
ner guests for who they are and the circumstances they find themselves in.
Dinner guests
VICA is the only organization providing regular dinners in Venice, according to
Prichard. The Venice Salvation Army offers occasional dinners and Fishers of Men Bible
Church serves a soup and sandwich lunch on Saturdays.
It seems to be working, if the numbers are any indication.

TO DONATE
Checks may be made payable to the Venice Interfaith Community Association.
Write "community dinners" on the memo line of the check. Donations may be mailed to
VICA, P.O. Box 2022, Venice, FL 34284-2022.

The project began with two dinners in
April and two in May. The first dinner had 15 guests. By fall, there
were 100 people. The largest number has been 135.
i-No one is turned away; a few guests come from Sarasota.
V"I lie dinner guests are made up of those who have lost jobs or
SI homes, or who are teetering on the brink of those losses.
Families and the elderly who are out of money or lonely, or
x both, also are in attendance.
S---' \ "There are more families out there who need these din-
-i s." Prichard said. "We are trying to get the word out to
*...them."
.- In order to provide the community dinners, VICA
"St. Mark's has a licensed kitchen and a licensed
kitchen manager," she said. "The Jewish Center has
a licensed kitchen, so meals are cooked there and
then transported to either the United Church of
Christ or Trinity Presbyterian."

BANQUET from Page 1B


$20,000. Of that amount, $11,000
came from a Gulf Coast Community
Foundation of Venice grant. The rest
is from donations. The dinners cost
about $300 a week. Prichard said they
plan to apply for another grant.
There are 275 volunteers helping
with the dinners in various capacities.
The chefs are dedicated to cooking
the dinners week in and week out.
Jim Blow was once the chef at the
Sheridan in Washington, D.C., which is
now out of business, as well as the Park
Hyatt Hotel in D.C. In Florida, he is the
former Longboat Key Club banquet
manager. Now he shares his cooking
skills with those in need of a meal.
Bill Hershkowitz alternates chef
duties with Blow. Hershkowitz cooks at
The Jewish Center, then transports the
food and about 12 people to help serve
the dinners. Many of the servers are
youths between the ages of 10-14.
"I love the dinner guests because of
the gratitude they show and how they
connect with the kids who serve them,"
he said.
Hershkowitz serves in his chef's hat
and coat to show respect for the diners.
"I worked very hard, sold my busi-
ness and, when I retired, I wanted to
volunteer as much as possible," he said.
It's part of his religion. In Jewish tra-
dition, you are supposed to do several
nice things mitzvahs each day.
"Your life should be full of mitzvahs,"
he said.
Volunteers
Prichard said the dinners have
caused a transformation in the volun-
teers especially the ones who social-
ize with the dinner guests.
Puryear agreed.
"Our volunteers get fed more than
the guests we are feeding," he said.
Volunteer Jim Koepkey is a good
example of what Prichard and Puryear
were saying.
"It is fascinating how working together
for the community dinners has trans-
formed us," he said. "Volunteers are from
Epiphany Cathedral, Trinity Presbyterian,
The Jewish Center, the United Church of
Christ and others. We haven't had much
interaction with those outside our own
denominations. This helps us drop those
silly little barriers we erect."
Koepkey said the community din-
ners have been a wonderful eye-open-
ing experience for all of the volunteers.
Though he has lived in Sarasota County
for 21 years, he admits he had no idea
how big the disenfranchised popula-
tion is.
"We look at paradise and think
everyone here is doing just fine," he
said. "We think homelessness is up in
Sarasota but not here. Well, it's here and
it's bad."
Koepkey said the volunteer work is
sometimes deflating, sometimes ago-
nizing and sometimes exhilarating. It's
most rewarding for him when someone
tells him they landed a job.
One woman had been without work
for nine months.
"I got a job, Mr. Jim. I got a job," she
told him. "It's part-time, but I'm work-
ing for a cleaners and that's what I
know. I grew up in it. It won't make
everything perfect, but I have my foot
in the door."


DEC. 19, 2009 WEEKEND EDITION


Another time, Koepkey and his wife
were shopping when they saw one of
their dinner guests ringing the
Salvation Army bell for its kettle drive.
Koepkey said he knew there were a very
few paid bell-ringer positions.
"I'm pleased to be here," the woman
told the Koepkeys. "It helps me get a lit-
tle leg up."
Koepkey said another man came to
say thanks with tears in his eyes after he
had nearly cleaned the enamel off his
plate.
"Nobody, nobody does it like you
people do," the man said. "We can go
anywhere and get a meal; here we get
nourishment.
Koepkey said he is proud in a very
humble sense to be a part of the com-
munity dinners.
"It's nice to be able to go home and
put your head on the pillow and realize
that you did a little something for
someone today," he said.
Betty Williams agreed. She was a lit-
tle reluctant to volunteer at first, but
now she is all smiles.
"They asked for co-captains," she
said. "I put my hand up, and then down
and when not very many responded, I
put it up again. I'm glad I did. What a
nice group of people come for the com-
munity dinners."
Williams said the plight of people
when seen up close is very real.
'A couple came to a dinner with a big
suitcase," she said. "I asked them where
they were living. They told me until last
May they lived in a house. Now they live
in the woods."
Challenges
Because of the carefully thought out
organization and vision of the commu-
nity dinners, there have been few chal-
lenges.
The rules are simple, really: No alco-
hol, drugs or smoking.
Male volunteers are used as greeters
to welcome the dinner guests and
remind them of the rules, if necessary.
Koepkey said a volunteer told him
he noticed a guy in cargo pants and
believed he had a beer in the right front
pocket. Koepkey approached the man
as he was making his way to a table. He
asked him if he had a beer in his pock-
et. The man said he did, and Koepkey
told him he would have to get rid of it.
"We have very few rules here,"
Koepkey told the man. "If you come
back with alcohol, you will not be invit-
ed back."
The man told him it would never
happen again.
Another time Koepkey saw a con-
frontation between two areas. He
stepped into the middle of it and
reminded the dinner guests that the
community dinner was to benefit
everyone. Then he suggested that a
couple of people take their plates to a
different table and cease talking. They
complied.
Koepkey said that has only hap-
pened a couple of times.
"We are intent on providing a very
safe environment for our guests," he
said.
Koepkey said it has been interesting
to watch the dinner guests police them-
selves and one another.
"They will talk to an unruly peer," he
said. "Our dinner guests are really great
and good people."

FINE WHINES

Bye-bye, Bobby


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


Copyrighted Material


Syndicated Content

Available from Commercial News Providers


I'm glad Florida State football
coach Bobby Bowden has finally
retired. Now I can stop hating him.
OK, I didn't actually hate Bobby
(years ago I represented Gator
Nation in a local Seminole Club golf
tournament he attended, so I feel
like we're close). I did hate that his
team sometimes seemed to have the
Gators' number when we could have
really used a win against it.
Fortunately, that has not been a con-
cern lately.
But like many Gators, I always
had a certain amount of
pride in FSU's success and
rooted for the team,
except for that one
game a year. In fact,
rivalries aside, I
think most col-
lege football
fans in Florida
like it when
UF, FSU and
Miami are
riding high
and are sad-
dened by
FSU's recent
struggles
(except for
that one game
a year.)
It's especial- '
ly sad that
Bobby is depart-
ing on a low note
and not of his own
free will. I'm not sure
how much he's actually been coach-
ing for the last decade or so and
that may or may not be part of the
problem but he is and will always
be one of the iconic figures in college
football. It would have been great for
him to be able to go out on top, after
a one-loss (to guess-who?) season
instead of being strongly "invited" to
retire.
It also would have been nice for
him to go out as the winningest
NCAA top-division coach, but that
would have required the prior retire-


ment of Joe Paterno, who has led a
resurgence of Penn State and is
under no pressure to make way for a
new coach. Bobby will have to settle
for second place, which isn't bad and
probably will be his spot for a long,
long time.
There are some outstanding
young coaches out there, but how
likely is it that any of them will still
be coaching at 80, especially with
what the top coaches get paid these
days? And Bobby was never tempted
by the challenge of the NFL, in which
some of them have
dabbled only to
beat a hasty
retreat back to
the college
ranks.
Just as the
possibility of
playing for
Bobby was
used to lure
players to
FSU, his
replacement,
Jimbo Fisher,
will try to use
the transition
to his advan-
tage, urging
high school stars
to be part of the
Seminoles' return
to greatness (though
I'd have a hard time
taking a grown man
named "Jimbo" seriously).
Florida's Urban Meyer, of
course, will be urging them to go
with a winner, though he won't be
able to dangle the prospect of imme-
diate playing time in front of them.
Oh well; that's recruiting.
I don't know when, but I'm sure
FSU will be back. In the immortal
words of the late Catfish Hunter, "the
sun don't shine on the same dog's
(butt) every day." In view of all he's
done for the school, I hope Bobby
can be a significant part of that
resurgence other than that one
game a year, of course.

Lions Club names local peace poster winners


FROM SIRI EKANAYAKE
VENICE LIONS CLUB


Each year, Lions clubs around
the world sponsor the Lions
International Peace Poster Contest
in local schools and youth groups.
This contest encourages young
people worldwide to artistically
express their visions of peace.
The theme of the 2009-10 Peace
Poster Contest is The Power of
Peace.
On Nov. 15, students, ages 11,
12 and 13 are eligible to partici-
pate.
Throughout the world, students
in some 200 countries take part in
this contest.


The Lions Club helps the partic-
ipating schools with financial aid
for art supplies and other needed
materials.
The Venice Lions Club con-
cluded its poster contest with the
following area schools: Epiphany
Cathedral School, Laurel-Noko-
mis School and Venice Middle
School.
One international grand prize
winner will receive a trip to a spe-
cial award ceremony with the
sponsoring club president and two
family members at Lions Day with
the United Nations.
During the ceremony, the
winning artist will receive an en-
graved plaque and a cash prize


of $2,500.
Each of the 23 merit award win-
ners will receive a cash award of
$500 and a certificate of achieve-
ment.
From the large number of
posters submitted to the art teach-
ers in each school, the teachers
sent what they judged as first, sec-
ond and third place winners to the
Lions Club.
The Lions Club in turn will send
them to the district contest to be
judged against other entries from
other districts.
The district winners will then be
submitted to the state, then na-
tional and finally to the inter-
national contests.

Cat rescuers save 16 cats from Hendry County facility


BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER

Two local cat rescue operations went
into overdrive recently with the news that
a cat sanctuary in Hendry County was
being shut down due to substandard liv-
ing conditions, leaving 500-600 cats
homeless.
Theresa Foley, owner of Venice Cat
Coalition-Key West Cat Society, a no-kill
operation, said she drove more than 100
miles to Clewiston Nov. 23 to help with
rescue operations at 10th Life Sanctuary
there. VCC has 10 cats from Clewiston.
"This was the first day of the rescue
operation, and we were the first rescue
group to accept cats," Foley said.
She said 550 cats had been surren-
dered to LaBelle Animal Control by the
owner of the sanctuary, and the cats were
being released by staff members of
LaBelle Animal Control.
"I drove there to get the cats and also
spent 12 hours that first day as an on-site
team member, helping with medical
treatments, assessments and cleaning,"

HOW TO HELP

St. Francis Animal Rescue recently added

dry and canned cat food (VCC); Pur-
ina Cat Chow (SFAR)

bleach and laundry detergent
hand sanitizer
gift cards to Home Depot (SFAR)

she said.
Foley needs a couple of people to vol-
unteer to become a foster home to allow
a few of the cats an "adjustment/assess-
ment period where it would be quiet
and they could interact with humans
outside a cage.
"They have been caged for quite a
while, and there is trauma involved,"
she said.
St. Francis Animal Rescue, a no-kill
rescue facility in Venice, took in six of
the Clewiston cats, according to Jill
Clark, who works at the shelter section
of SFAR.
"We took the cats on Dec. 7. We al-
ready have a large population of cats but
could fit them in," she said.
Foley said a local resident adopted a
Russian blue, female cat named Mem-
phis Belle from Pet Supermarket's adop-
tion cage Dec. 17.
"Four more cats will be rehomed into
three locations Christmas week," she said.

INCOMPLETE THERAPY


DR. DAN BUSCH, DR. ERENE ROMANSKI
CHIROPRACTOR
Perhaps you've been shown exercises to
help your lower back problem. What do you
think? Is it ok for you to use them, too?
It would be enlightening to know the
number of people with qualified back
problems who are told they only need to
exercise. They are led to believe that nothing
else need be done except to follow the sheet
of stretching exercises.
This is not only incomplete i, p., it is
also therapy that could be disastrous. When


we exercise and stretch muscles without
removing the cause of the spasms, it actually
forces the body to degenerate faster. You are
better off doing no exercise at all.
In chiropractic, we know that exercise is
an important part of health, but only after
chiropractic care has removed the spinal
fixations that caused the problem in the first
place. Then, and only then, can the spine be
correctly stretched and strengthened without
traumatizing muscles and nerves.

Families recall story of Hanukkah

FROM THE JEWISH CENTER
OF VENICE


Children and parents cele-
brated Hanukkah at the
Jewish Center of Venice, on
Sunday, Dec. 13, with special
holiday foods, including
latkes (potato pancakes) and
sufganiyot (jelly-filled dough-
nuts). Families created their
own dreidels (spinning tops)
to play a betting game with
nuts or pennies and lit the
eight-branched Hanukkah
candelabra (menorah).
Hanukkah celebrates the
ideal of religious freedom by
recalling both a historical
military victory, around 165
B.C., and also a miraculous
legend.
When the tyrannical Syrian-
Greek rulers were routed out
of Jerusalem by a small but
courageous Jewish army, and
Jews were again permitted to
practice their religion, a
rededication (hanukkah) of
the Holy Temple was required.
Unfortunately, only a one-day
supply of the special purified
oil to light the lamp before the
Holy Ark was found. Yet,
according to legend, the lamp
burned for eight days until a
messenger returned with

Hanukkah.


more oil.
Jews celebrate Hanukkah
by lighting the menorah for
eight days, and enjoying foods
fried in oil.
The dreidel reminds us of
the Jewish children who were
secretly studying their reli-
gion under penalty of death.


When a stranger approached,
the sacred scrolls were quick-
ly hidden, the dreidels were
spun, and the group of chil-
dren was seen playing an
innocent game.
Hanukkah is celebrated
Dec. 11, beginning at sun-
down, to Dec. 19.

Charlotte honored by arrival of Vietnam Memorial Wall

WHO: Maurie Woosley,
Realtor at Prudential
Florida Realty
LOCATION: 309 Tamiami Tr.,

The holiday season is
now in full bloom and
Beverly and I hope that
you are able to enjoy
some quality time with
family over the next few
weeks.
No matter what our
circumstances, we all
have a lot to be thankful
for as this special time of
year gives us a chance to
gather close with our
loved ones.
We could not help but
think about the many


folks who could not be
with those family mem-
bers who are currently
serving overseas in the
military at this time.
The residents of Punta
Gorda and all of Char-
lotte County were
honored to see the arrival
of the Vietnam Traveling
Memorial Wall which was
on display in Laishley
Park for several days.
The opening ceremony
was held on Veterans Day
and thanks to a signifi-
cant percentage of
Charlotte County's
population with military
service, this event drew a
large crowd to honor the
58,000 men and women
who gave their lives in
Vietnam.
Punta Gorda is very
fortunate to have its own
Military Heritage and
Aviation Museum located
in Fisherman's Village.
This museum is home to
more than 30,000 arti-
facts from all branches of
the military. Included are
relics from as early as the
civil war as well as items


from the recent conflicts
in the Middle East.
If you spend time in
our museum, it will be
obvious to you that
freedom is not free! For
more information, about
the museum, visit
www.freedomisntfree.org.
Although the traffic on
our usually quiet roads is
increasing, we are very
pleased to welcome back
to the Sunshine State our
many snowbird friends
who boost the economy
by visiting our local shops
and restaurants and often
stay to become our friends
and neighbors.
In working with clients
recently searching for a
waterfront home, I was
reminded that Punta
Gorda is a world class
boating community with
34 miles of canals where
you have the conve-
nience of being able to
park your boat directly
behind your home.
It is a real morale
booster to be able to
spend the day relaxing on
the boat on Charlotte


Harbor with easy access
to nearby restaurants
located on Boca Grande,
Palm Island or at Cape
Harbor or Burnt Store
Marina or up the Peace
River to the Navigator
Restaurant for lunch.
John Magnin, a well
known Punta Gorda
website designer recently
produced a short video
featuring our fantastic
waterways and highlight-
ing that Punta Gorda is a
"Special Place for Special
People". To view this
video, please visit
www.puntagordatv.com.
The media is highlight-
ing that home sales are
continuing to rise and
year to date sales in our
area are tracking at 35%
over last year. It is
obvious that a lot of
people who were on the
fence are now buying
homes while the prices
are so low. Is the time
right for you?
In summary, if you or
any of your friends are
considering the purchase
of a home in Florida, now

Field find: Original 1951 Dodge pickup


.' nYou Autow'
Know'


Certainly most
people in the old
car hobby have
heard of "barn find."
That's when an old
original vehicle is found
in a barn, usually
covered over or partially
covered, or parked in the
shadows of a barn,
garage or chicken coop.
The 1951 Dodge 3/4-
ton pickup pictured here
actually was the oppo-
site, as it was parked out
in a field along Kings
Highway with a "for sale"
sign in the window. The
present owners, Steve
Kasper Sr. and wife
Diane, saw it on their
way to Arcadia and in a
very short time bought
this totally original "in
the rough" Dodge.
They remember the
date vividly, as it was July
4, 2009. Since then the
fluids were changed,
some electrical repaired,
and a tune-up
performed, making this
former work horse road-
worthy, ready to drive
anywhere from their Port
Charlotte home.
The Kaspers, including
Steve Jr., haven't decided
whether to restore it or
keep it as is, a good fun
truck. They've taken it to
several cruise-ins and
found fellow hobbyists
and the general public
like it because of the
originality. So do I, from
the minute I saw it at the
Charlotte Cruisers
Murdock McDonald's
Cruise In with "car guys"
showing a lot of interest.
First of all, old trucks are
rather rare and original
versions are very scarce.
Now I'm happy to be
able to feature it and the
interesting owners.
This couple grew up in
the Buffalo, N.Y., area,
and lived and worked in
nearby Amherst. He was
an employee of the
town's police department
as a crime lab fingerprint
examiner. After 21 years,
Steve took retirement
along with Diane, who
also was a city employee,
first in the recreation
department, then after
raising their two chil-
dren, returned part time
in the tax collector's
office.
Having enough of
winter weather, they
departed the North in
1995 with 12-year-old
son, Steve Jr., to move to
the Sunshine State.
Daughter Katherine
elected to stay in New
York to complete college
and go on into teaching.
Steve Sr. quickly found a
job with the Lee County
Sheriff's Office, where he
worked again as a
fingerprint examiner. In
2000 he was hired by
FDLE as a senior crime
lab analyst and is setting
his sight for a second
retirement in the near
future.
Meanwhile, son Steve,
now 27, went on with his
education, then became
an officer with the state
Department of
Transportation, of which
he is very proud and
happy, as his wife
Melissa is about to make
him a first-time daddy
any day. He too likes the
old Dodge and it was
very evident when he
took his mother from
their home to where we
took the pictures. He had
that special smile that
comes over folks when
they are in control of
something more than 50
years old. Diane was
happy too as she
bounced along.

George Chamberlain, Craig Henry, Don Hawkins and AI Boscaglia of Peace River car club. "Rather than exchanging gifts with one another, this year
our club decided to put a smile on the face of those that help us. I am very proud of our club members generosity," said Craig Henry. The club
members donated a trunk load of gifts for our men and women stationed overseas. When they stopped by Bob Campbell's museum Mr. Campbell
donated many much needed items to be shipped to our troops.
