Feds visit airport


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


The U.S. Department of
Transportation's Office of the
Inspector General wrapped up
a two-day visit to the city of
Venice on Friday.
The feds interviewed Air-
port Director Fred Watts, who
is on administrative leave over
a domestic dispute; City Man-
ager Isaac Turner; Assistant
City Manager Nancy Woodley;
Finance Director Jeff Snyder;
and numerous airport lessees.
They also toured the airport
and reviewed documents.
Investigators asked ques-
tions about the Federal Avi-
ation Administration's han-
dling of the city's effort to
downgrade the airport, some-


thing the FAA hasn't ruled on
yet but doesn't typically sup-
port, and various leases -
issues that have occupied
council for the past two years.
The city is embroiled in a
Part 16 complaint filed with
the FAA by the Venice Jet
Center over proposed hangars
the city has refused to grant
permission for at least not
in the currently proposed loca-
tion near Airport Avenue.
A citizen complaint against
the FAA's handling of the dis-
puted hangars and the Part 16
complaint triggered the feds'
interest.

ferty at first wrote to former
U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez about

Suspects still at large


VPD: Leads are
overwhelming
BY GREG GILES AND
BROOKY BROWN
Venice Police Department
detectives are still searching
for the two masked gunmen
who briefly took hostages at TJ
Maxx in Venice Tuesday night
in a suspected robbery.
They are reviewing store
surveillance tapes as part of
the investigation and pursuing
every lead.
"Because of the huge
amount of publicity on this
case, we are receiving lots of
leads and phone calls," said
Detective Ron Solanes. "That's
a good thing, but it will take a
little while to pursue all of the
leads."
He also said they hope to
release the surveillance videos
in the near future.
Solanes said the number of
leads is a little overwhelming,
so it was helpful that the Sara-
sota County Sheriff's Office
lent VPD two supervisors and
two detectives to help with the
load for a couple of days.
"It was a good idea and a
good opportunity for us to
work together," he said.
VPD Chief Julie Williams
echoed that sentiment.

STAFF WRITERS

Christine Myette was just
locking up the TJ Maxx on
Tamiami Trail about 9:30 p.m.
Tuesday when two gunmen
burst into the store.
"They had on Darth Vader
masks and were carrying guns.
I immediately hit the floor,
then they were yelling and
cussing me out and zip-tied
my hands behind my back,"
said Myette, a Venice High
School senior.
"There was one man in the
store and he stood up and
looked around and waved us
to go out," she said. "They did-
n't ask for money. I had $2,000
in my register. I could have
easily opened my register but
they didn't ask."
About 12 employees were in
the store at the time but some
ran out the back door, leaving
four employees and two shop-
pers inside with the gunmen.

Season's sad end


Council mulls a tax break referendum


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


The city of Venice is explor-
ing whether to give residents
and local businesses a tax
break.
Council has directed staff to
determine whether Sarasota
County is going to call for a ref-
erendum next year to grant
economic development ad
valorem tax exemptions to
businesses. City leaders want
to know if they can put a city
ad valorem tax exemption on
the same referendum and
what the cost would be.
Council agreed to present
the issue to the Venice Eco-
nomic Development Task
Force for its recommendation,
then to put the issue on its own
agenda for a public hearing to
determine whether to call for a


Lang Moore


referendum on the ad valorem
tax exemption.
Vice Mayor Sue Lang raised
the issue, and urged the state
to enact a law to implement
already-approved tax exemp-
tions for hurricane strengthen-
ing and energy-efficient im-
provements so those allow-
ances can take place. The city
could then adopt a process to
participate in the program, she
said, either by establishing a

Task force

to address

pier antics

BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR

Profanity, late-night drink-
ing, reckless behavior and lit-
tering have finally spurred the
city into creating a temporary
task force to address ongoing
complaints at the Venice Fish-
ing Pier.
City council will consider a
resolution on Nov. 24 (Tues-
day) creating a new Pier Task
Force. It would be guided by
Utilities Director Len Bramble
and consist of citizens in-
volved with the pier. The reso-
lution would expire in six
months.
"People who use it fre-
quently are invited to help
solve the problems out there,"
said city Public Information
Officer Pam Johnson. "Any-
thing they come up with can
be discussed. We're completely
open to all ideas."
One recurring idea unpop-
ular with local fishermen is to
close the pier down at night.
"We don't know if that will
be one of the recommenda-
tions," Johnson said. "We'd
hate for other people to pay
the consequences of inappro-
priate actions of a few. But if
we can't find a better way to fix
the problems there, then that
might be what has to happen.
That's why we are asking the
people who use the pier to
help resolve these issues."
The resolution up for coun-
cil action next week reads in
part: "city council desires to
create an ad hoc committee to
collect information and ideas
and make recommendations
to assist the city to make sound
choices and find the most fea-
sible, coherent way to encour-
age proper use of the munici-
pal fishing pier by its residents
and visitors. Members shall
have an interest in maintain-
ing the fishing pier as a clean,
family-oriented place for peo-
ple to gather and fish."
The task force will be com-
posed of five members ap-
pointed by the mayor and sub-
ject to confirmation by city
council. Of the five, one will be
a representative of Sharky's On
The Pier restaurant, if possible.
They'll review issues "relat-

Ethics review
moves forward
The Florida Com-
mission on Ethics this
week issued notice that it
found a complaint filed
by former city council
member Bill Willson
against Vice Mayor Sue
Lang legally sufficient to
proceed with an investi-
gation.
Willson filed an ethics
complaint alleging Lang
and other council mem-
bers conspired to have
their private attorney
fees in the Sunshine law-
suit paid by the city.
Willson claims Lang,
council members John
Moore and Ernie Zav-
odnyik and Mayor Ed
Martin circumvented the
law by participating in
two separate votes that,
in the end, resulted in
reimbursements for pri-
vate attorney fees.
In all, defendants sub-
mitted nearly $300,000
in bills from private
attorneys, which council


ordered the city manager
and city attorney to pay.
Lang, the target of
the most serious Sun-
shine complaint of using
liaisons, said she incurred
approximately $2,000 in
private attorney fees but
didn't seek reimburse-
ment.
Willson filed a similar
complaint against Moore.
Restroom
appreciation
Sarasota County Com-
mission Chair Jon Thax-
ton sent a letter to Venice
Mayor Ed Martin in
appreciation for allowing
the county to connect
Caspersen Beach rest-
rooms to the city's utili-
ties infrastructure. The
new restroom and other
improvements planned
for the area will serve
those going to the beach
and using Venetian
Waterway Park.
"This action is one of
many examples of col-
laboration between Sara-
sota County and the city
of Venice for the better-
ment of our community,"
Thaxton wrote.

and training seminars, organizing and
supporting bicycling events, publishing a
quarterly newspaper and in general being
an advocate for bicyclists throughout the
state.
Displaying a Share the Road specialty

CROP cash provides fruits, veggies and bread


BY BROOKY BROWN
PROJECTS EDITOR

Richard Gilbert, Ven-
ice area coordinator of
CROP Walk, presented a
$2,600 check to Sandra
Terry, executive director
of the Laurel Civic As-
sociation on Tuesday.
The money will provide
fresh fruits, vegetables,
dairy and bread for the
meals served to young-
sters after school at the
association's Kids Cafe.
CROP stands for
Communities Respond-
ing to Overcome Poverty.
The walks to stamp out
hunger have been taking
place in Venice for more
than 25 years.
"The Venice walk has
been the top walk in the
state of Florida for over
five years," Gilbert said.
"We also are one of the
top 10 walks in the entire
United States."
Terry was grateful for
the gift from CROP
"It's a blessing for us,"
Terry said, "because we
don't have a funding
source for the Kids Cafe."
The Kids Cafe is just
one aspect of the associa-
tion's Homework Plus
programs. Terry had ask-
ed CROP Walk for $50 a
week for a year to provide
added nutrition to the
children.
Gilbert said that over
the past three years the
Venice walk has averaged
more than $63,000 to
fight hunger. CROP is
made up of 15 churches
and organizations.
The Feb. 28 CROP
Walk will have about 500
participants who will
leave Centennial Park at
3 p.m. for a 3-mile walk
through the city. The
organizations that will
benefit from the money
raised are Meals on
Wheels, the Salvation
Army, the Laurel Civic
Association, the South
County Food Pantry, the
Trinity Presbyterian Com-
munity Assistance Pro-
gram and Fishers of Men
Bible Church and Soup
Kitchen.
Also attending the
check presentation was
Pastor Ruffin Stepp, an
associate pastor atVenice
Presbyterian Church. His
church funds Carmen
Lanzo's salary at LCA.
Lanzo is an assistant in
the Homework Plus Kids
Cafe program.
"We support a differ-
ent organization every
month," Stepp said. "We
have contributed several
thousand dollars to this
program, and some of
our church families vol-
unteer here."
For information about
the 2010 CROP Walk or to
register to participate,

enough vaccines to accommodate up to 1,000 people
at each location Saturday.
Both the H1N1 nasal mist, which is preservative-
free, and an injectable vaccine will be available.
More than 21,000 doses of vaccine have been
sent to health-care providers for their patients who
are in the CDC priority groups, since these individ-
uals are among those at highest risk for the H1NI
virus and its complications. The two county vac-
cine clinics are an option for those in the CDC pri-
ority groups who did not get the vaccine through
their doctor, work site or school.
Similar to the seasonal influenza vaccine, the H1N1
vaccine provides protection to most people in eight to
10 days. Those who receive the seasonal FluMist nasal
spray vaccine should wait at least 28 days before
receiving the H1N1 FluMist nasal spray vaccine.
Health officials anticipate being able to vaccinate
the general population through walk-in and drive-
through clinics sometime after the Thanksgiving hol-
iday. Dates will be announced once there are suffi-
cient vaccines available.
Information on H1N1 vaccine availability for the
general population will be available at www.sarasota
health.org. Those who do not have access to a com-
puter can visit the health kiosks at local libraries
across the county.
Residents also can call the Flu Information Line,
861-2800, or the Sarasota County Call Center at
861-5000 after Thanksgiving. The Sarasota County
Call Center has a TDD line, 861-1833, available for
those who are hearing-impaired.
Residents also can call the toll-free Florida Flu
Information Line for general questions about
H1N1 at (877) 352-3581.

WEEKEND EDITION NOV. 21, 2009


POLICE BEAT
Backhand?
A man claimed that
misbehavior by a 12-
year-old girl was the rea-
son he struck her.
The girl
and her
mother
notified A
the Sara-
sota
County
Sheriff's
Office of


the inci- I
dent Adams
Thursday.
The responding deputy
observed minor swelling
around the girl's left eye.
The lens of her glasses
was broken and she had
a minor cut to her lower
lip. The girl and her mo-
ther told the deputy that
these things were the
result of Robert Stanley
Adams hitting the girl.
The deputy talked
with Adams, who ac-
cording to the report told
the officer that he had
struck the girl with his
hand when she contin-
ued to act disorderly in
his house after repeated
requests to stop.
Adams, 59, 600 block
Cypress Road, Venice,
was arrested and charg-
ed with domestic battery.
No bond was set.
False calls
A man on Venice Ave-
nue misled five Venice
Police Department pa-
trol units between 11:35
p.m. and 12:39 a.m.
The man kept calling
9-1-1, sometimes provid-
ing false information
and sometimes just
hanging up.
Sarasota 9-1-1 opera-
tors said
they were
getting
numerous
calls from v
a cell
phone in
the 100
block of
West
Venice Sykes
Avenue
that was no longer in
service. They reported
the man was talking
about suicide by un-
known means and
wouldn't provide any
further information.
Five patrol units
combed the area looking
for an elderly male (bas-
ed on his voice) and
found the call was false.
About 12:21 a.m. ad-
ditional 9-1-1 calls were
made by the man, who
continued to refuse to
give any more informa-
tion and continued to
hang up.
Jeffrey Sykes was spot-
ted sitting on a bench in
the 200 block of West
Venice Avenue wearing
shorts and a T-shirt. He
told VPD officers that he
had just left the Old Ven-
ice Pub and was about to
walk home. He said his
cell phone was turned
off and he never called 9-
1-1.
Sykes allowed officers
to look at his phone, and
the call log revealed that
9-1-1 had been called
from that phone.

arrested and charged
with making false 9-1-1
calls. His bond is $120.
This wasn't the first
time Sykes had made
calls to 9-1-1.
On Sept. 9, he called
9-1-1 several times and
said an unknown female
was trying to kill him
while he was out drink-
ing in bars. Later that
night he started a fire in
his apartment cooking
while intoxicated. No
charges were filed in that
incident.
Not his TV
A man and his room-
mate pulled into their
driveway about 1 p.m.
on Wednesday and spot-
ted a thief holding the
victim's flat-screen TV
The victim ran to the
man and grabbed the TV
out of his hands and ask-
ed him why he was
stealing it. The thief said
his friend had a TV stol-
en similar to that one, so
he was getting it for his
friend. The victim took
the TV inside and called
9-1-1 as the thief and
another man rode off on
a bike. A Sarasota Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office deputy
responded.
The victim also dis-
covered that a Compac
laptop computer, pre-
scription cyclobenza-
prine, a Kodak 35-mm
camera, a blue Samsung
cell phone and an LG
Vue cell phone were
missing.
Another roommate
who had been sleeping
in the house said he
heard a knock at the
window and a male
voice asked if anyone
was there. The room-
mate looked out the
window and saw a white
male wearing a black T-
shirt and plaid shorts.
He told the man the vic-
tim wasn't home, and
the man asked him to
tell the victim that he
would be back in 30
minutes. The roommate
then went back to sleep
and didn't hear or see
anything else.
The victim drove
around the neighbor-


hood looking for the sus-
pects riding a blue bike
with chrome fenders.
The victim said he spot-
ted two people on the
bike. The victim con-
fronted them and
noticed that one of them
was the thief. The thief
threw a tan pillowcase to
the side of the road and
fled on foot. The victim
didn't recognize the sec-
ond male as the person
who had been with the
thief in the victim's yard.
The victim identified
the suspect as the one
who had been stealing
his TV The suspect was
arrested
and
searched.
He had
the vic- d
tim's pre-
scription
cycloben-
zaprine,
the Kodak
35-mm Rochek
camera
and the blue Samsung
cell phone in his shorts
pocket.
Ian Matthew Rochek,
25, 1900 block Faun
Road, Venice, was
charged with unarmed
burglary of an occupied
structure. His bond was
set at $10,000.
Domestic violence
An irate Seth N. Reed
grabbed his girlfriend by
the arms on Tuesday and
when she pulled away,
he chased her around
their residence, accord-
ing to a Sarasota County
Sheriff's report.
The victim ran out-
side, where the chase
continued. Reed
grabbed the victim by
the shoulders and then
around her neck. The
victim pushed him away
and a neighbor came
outside and called 9-1-1.
The victim went to
the neighbor's house
and Reed went back
inside his residence.
When deputies arrived,
they saw red marks on
the victim's shoulder and
on the right side of her
neck. The injuries were
photographed and the


memory card entered
into evidence.
Reed, 21, 300 block
Briarwood Road, Venice,
was arrested and charg-
ed with domestic bat-
tery. No bond was set.
Boyfriend battered
AVenice Police Depart-
ment officer interviewed a
domestic violence victim
at theVPD station, ac-
cording to the report.
The victim told the
officer that he and his
girlfriend had argued
about their relationship.
When he tried to hug
her, she bit his right fore-
arm and began kicking
his shins.
When
she got
into her
car to O
leave, he
told the
officer, he
sat on her
lap and
held the Jackson
wheel so
she couldn't leave, but
when she became angry
he got off her.
She then went back
into the house and start-
ed knocking things off
the counters and throw-
ing things. Eventually
the couple went back
outside, where she took
her car keys and used
them to put a deep
scratch in the hood of
the car on the driver
side. The victim tried to
get between her and the
car, and in doing so,
pushed her away and
she fell into the garage
door. The victim told the
officer that when his girl-
friend got up, she keyed
another scratch into the
hood. Then she got into
the car and left.
The officer saw a cir-
cular red mark on the
victim's right forearm.
The size and shape were
consistent with a bite,

Dirty water flowing under the bridge


Like an irresponsible young man
blowing his paycheck on parties,
vacations and home electronics,
Florida now finds itself with a hang-
over and a big overdue bill. Not sur-
prisingly, a host of enablers and pro-
crastinators are coming to the state's
defense hoping to keep the good
times rolling without paying the price
tag.
A federal district court ruled
Monday that Florida had dragged its
feet for too long in setting quantifi-
able standards for water quality and
must abide by federal standards to be
drafted by the Environmental
Protection Agency. The ruling, which
settled a lawsuit brought by environ-
mental organizations, was immedi-
ately labeled by business group
mouthpieces such as Associated
Industries of Florida's Barney Bishop
as ajob-killer.


That's blarney. Since 1998, Florida
and its dubiously named Department
of Environmental Protection have
failed to abide by an EPA requirement
that states set numeric standards for
pollutants. Florida got sued and lost.
Even before the court ruling,
Florida counties were warned that
they must implement plans to reduce
the level of pollutants released into
waterways. Lemon Bay has been
declared an impaired waterway due
to the amount of nutrients, bacteria
and other pollutants leaching into the
water from faulty and ill-placed septic
systems.
You'll read and hear a lot in the
coming weeks about the federal gov-
ernment overreaching its authority,
how it's singling out Florida and other
smokescreens. But Florida isn't being
singled out by the Clean Water Act. It
is a federal law passed by Congress in


1972 and signed into law by President
Richard Nixon. Every state must com-
ply. Florida hasn't.
Sunshine and beaches are Florida's
brand. Yet even as the state spends
millions of dollars to attract tourists to
its beaches and waterways, it has
been spending money trying to avoid
having to comply with the Clean
Water Act.
Septic tanks aren't the only source
of nutrients that contribute to algae
blooms. Fertilizer runoff is another
prime culprit. Yet when Charlotte and
Sarasota counties passed fertilizer
ordinances limiting where and how
fertilizer could be applied, the usual
chorus of naysayers chimed in on cue
about the cost and the heavy hand of
government.
Punta Gorda, with its miles of
canals, opted not to pass an ordi-
nance at all.


Should we wait until the Peace
River, Charlotte Harbor, Lemon Bay,
the Myakka River and Myakkahat-
chee Creek are covered with a floating
green slime broken up only by float-
ing fish carcasses before acting? That's
no exaggeration. Evidence intro-
duced in the lawsuit showed numer-
ous examples of just that kind of
impact around the state. That's the
result some folks will be arguing for,
no matter what kind of duplicitous
language they use to obscure the
issue.
For too long Florida has been
putting off the hard decisions to
ensure our precious waterways,
beaches and drinking water sources
are healthy and protected. The bill
has come due and we have nobody to
blame with ourselves and the peo-
ple we let convince us we could put it
off.


Putting the 'Doh' in FDOT


This just in from the Homer
Simpson School of Enlight-
ened Government:
The state of Florida spent
$32-plus million over three-
plus years on a major widen-
ing of 3-plus miles of U.S. 41 in
Nokomis from the Bird Bay
Village near the Venice Bypass
to State Road 681.
It was an absolute head-
ache. Motorists, businesses
and residents had to put up
with construction delays when
the project ran overtime. Well
overtime.
Originally scheduled to take
20 months, the road project
dragged on to 24, 26, 28, 30, 32,
34, 38 and more months be-
fore finally being completed,
more or less, early this year.
Everyone fumed about the
delays; businesses suffered.
And when it was completed,
there were six wide, smooth
lanes of blacktop, as many as
eight and nine lanes if you fig-
ured in the turning lanes. It is a
wide expanse of asphalt, a tar-
mac worthy of Chicago's
O'Hare Airport. A flat, black,
wide Mississippi River of as-
phalt through "downtown" No-
komis. Fast-flowing, wide ...
and unattractive.
What's lacking?
Trees.
If you drive along U.S. 41 in
North Port or South Venice,
along Jacaranda Boulevard or
State Road 776 in Englewood
you'll see plantings of oaks and
crape myrtles in the grassy
medians. You may not notice
them all the time, unless the
myrtles are in bloom, but they
make the roadway look a lot
more appealing.
Try visualizing the road
without them sometime. Trees
and bushes break up the flat
expanse. They are key to high-
way beautification.
In Nokomis, one aspect of
the road project also was com-
munity beautification. That's
hardly the case now, without
the greenery.
And that's where we take
our seats in the Homer Simp-
son School classroom.
When Sarasota County
adopted a community plan for
Nokomis, it included a nice
complement of roadway trees.
Trees in the median would tie
into smaller trees along the
roadside, according to Bruce
Dillon of the Nokomis Area
Civic Association. Community
revitalization, according to
plan.
Years ago, the plan coincid-
ed with state highway rules,


said County Commissioner
Jon Thaxton. The county even
put aside voter-approved in-
frastructure surtax money to
plant the trees and complete
road beautification.
But when the county pro-
ceeded with planting plans,
the Department of Transpor-
tation said, "nope." The rules
had changed.
Upon further review, they
told county officials that rules
forbidding trees in certain
medians in certain places -
like Nokomis had always
been there. They were just
buried deep in the FDOT rule
book. Someone finally noticed.
Adding insult to insult, it
turns out that if the project
had been completed on time,
or even somewhere close to on
time, the trees would have
been approved. The new rules
- or newly discovered old
rules took effect in July, Dil-
lon said.
Enter our teacher, Homer
Simpson: Doh!
Or as Thaxton put it: "This is
ridiculous."
Or Dillon: "If they had been
planted a year or more ago,
they'd be three feet taller by
now."
FDOT's rules involve a for-
mula dealing with highway
design speed (not the posted
speed but the speed trans-
portation officials figure peo-
ple will actually travel, which is
faster), the width of the medi-
an and curb design (mount-
able, unmountable or none).
The bottom line is that the
entire length of the Nokomis
project is classified as some-
thing called a "taper." Under
the new rules, that means no
trees.
As indicated before, Thax-
ton thinks this is ridiculous.
"If it weren't for that delay,
we would have been proces-
sed under the old rules," he
said.
He also noticed all the other
roads with trees in medians.
He even traveled to Naples to
measure the medians (curbs,
width, speed, etc.) at a recently
completed U.S. 41 road pro-
ject. It was very similar to
Nokomis. And Naples tony
community that it is had
really nice trees in its medians.
What gives with that?
Thaxton agrees the road-
way looks pretty sorry right
now.
"It makes it look like a 747
landing strip," he said Monday.
"You've got to buffer that with
something. What if you were to
put a live oak every 300 feet or
so and throw in some crape
myrtles? You would have color
and depth and height and
relief."
Relief is right. The way it is
right now, Thaxton said, mo-
torists "just want to get the hell
of of Dodge."
And that really defeats the
purpose of community revital-
ization.

It wasn't opportunity knocking

Door man. I am calling to share an experience that I think a
lot of people should know about. It happened on Monday night
at 9:30. My doorbell rings. I'm sleeping. My husband answers the
door. Anyway, long story short, there's a man claiming to be our
neighbor from three or four houses down saying he needs help;
his wife's been in an accident; he needs cash; he just needs a few
more dollars so he can get the car that's been in the accident out
of tow or from the tow company. It was a scam, but it's very scary
when someone comes right up to your door, boldly rings your
doorbell and gives you a story. To everybody: Beware. As the
world continues to get more challenging financially, I won't be
surprised if we see more of this. Don't answer your door, and
don't be afraid to shut the door and call the police. If there's
someone doing this in our little, quiet neighborhood, right
behind Mama Leone's in Nokomis, just think where they're going
to go next. Keep your eyes open and be careful.


Results oriented. Four
years ago Bob Vedder asked
Gary Norris what we had got-
ten for the 1-mill surtax that
the taxpayers had voted on.
Gary told Bob that it was too
soon to tell that you need at
least five years before you
could see results from the
approximately $160 million
that was collected and given to
the school district. Well, here
we are now, another four years
into the future with another
$200 million collected by the
school district and we still do
not have definitive evidence of
what that additional money
has gotten for us. I am speak-
ing of things such as improved
graduation rates; improved
graduation rates for minorities;
a narrowing of the achievement
gap between whites and mi-
norities (and I don't mean by
white students' scores going
down); lower truancy rates -
things of that sort. What we got
instead is how the money was
spent on more teachers,
higher teacher pay, hiring
teacher aides, additions to the
staff such as assistant superin-
tendent, assistant principals.
Nothing in the way of perfor-
mance, just "this is where the
money went." I would be very
reluctant to vote for another 1-
mill surtax because we don't
know where it's going. It's just

going into the system and it
disappears. And then, the
school board has trouble bal-
ancing its budget when enroll-
ment declines, which it has in
recent times. So, school board
and whoever is supporting the
1-mill tax has got a big job in
front of them educating peo-
ple that the money authorized
has been well spent and has
developed positive accom-
plishments.
Attention snowbirds. We in
retail do not need a calendar to
tell us when season has ar-
rived. We just tell by how much
the rudeness level in the store


picks up. Here are a few things
you need to know in order to
get your shopping done quick-
er and still have a pleasant
shopping experience. No. 1:
When a salesperson takes 45
minutes to help you find just
what you're looking for by call-
ing other stores and setting up
deliveries, etc., then the pay-
ment method or the delivery
date is not exactly what you
like, do not call her worthless.
No. 2: When you are in line and
have to wait a couple of min-
utes longer than you do up
North, and when you see an-
other employee walking by
who is on another mission
helping someone else and
does not have time to open
another register at that point,
do not call her a worthless
piece of (blank). No. 3: We are
here to help you, not be your
servants. We do manage to feed
ourselves during the off season
when you are not here. Please
act accordingly. If something
does not suit you or you think
they do it better back home, by
all means, remember that Delta
is ready when you are. Finally,
please remember the things
you learned in kindergarten. Be
nice, play fair, share with others
and smile. Your mother would
be so proud.
Kudos, Lu. I'm calling you
in connection with a successful
attempt to enter a want ad in
your paper. I was there this
morning. A lady waited on me.
The ad was for Good Shepherd
Episcopal Church. She was very
helpful answering the ques-
tions that you ask about where
to put it and so forth. I wanted
to compliment her on her very
thoughtful exercise of her
duties. That was Mrs. Dalton.
Counting. I was reading in
the paper about Mayor Martin,
and it just really makes me sick
to think that we have to put up
with this for another year until
his term is up. I hope he goes
away. If not, I hope he's voted
out along with the Lang
woman.

from AARP urging me to

You bet there is, and
it's called quid pro quo,
which means "you do
something for me and I
do something for you."
With the end of Medicare

care, AARP could gain
millions of seniors seek-

this bill passes?
I think everyone
should call AARP to tell it
that it needs to go back to

of all seniors rather than

to do everything possible

chanan represents the

Health reform we can afford


VERN BUCHANAN
GUEST COLUMNIST


With an unemploy-
ment rate of more than
10 percent, the worst
thing Congress could do
is raise taxes on small
businesses and create a
government-run health-
care program. Yet that is
precisely what would
happen under the health
care bill that recently
passed the U.S. House of
Representatives.
I voted against the big-
spending bill that raises
taxes, cuts Medicare for
seniors, expands govern-
ment control of health
care and increases the
federal deficit.
People are fed up with
reckless spending com-
ing out of Washington.
They want health care
reform that lowers the
cost of health insurance,
not expands the size of
government. But the 10-
year, $1.2 trillion House
health-care bill (H.R.
3962) would open the
door to a government
takeover of health care.
Medicare has been
successful in providing
seniors with access to
health care. The Demo-
crats' health-care plan
would threaten care for
seniors by cutting $500
billion from Medicare.
That includes a $150 bil-
lion cut to the Medicare
Advantage health-care
plan enjoyed by 30,000
seniors in Florida's 13th
District, as well as cuts to
hospitals, home health
care and nursing homes.
This health-care plan
would also increase taxes
by $740 billion, including
a 5.4-percent surcharge
on those with incomes of
$500,000, which are
mostly small business
owners. Like the Altern-
ative Minimum Tax, the
surtax is not indexed to
inflation. That means it


could eventually result in
higher taxes for middle-
class families.
The bill would also
force individuals to ob-
tain insurance and force
employers to provide it.
Under the plan, small
businesses that can't
afford to provide health
insurance coverage to
their workers would be
charged a job-killing 8-
percent payroll tax.
Furthermore, individ-
uals without health in-
surance would be charg-
ed an individual tax
equal to roughly 2.5 per-
cent of their income. The
nonpartisan Joint Com-
mittee on Taxation con-
firmed recently that peo-
ple who fail to comply
with the individual man-
date to buy health insur-
ance could land in jail for
up to five years or pay a
criminal fine of up to
$250,000.
And it extends health
insurance to illegal im-
migrants. That's just
plain wrong.
I voted instead for an
alternative bill that
would do more to reduce
health insurance costs
without damaging the
economy or putting
Washington bureaucrats
in control of our care.
This alternative would
increase competition by
allowing insurance to be
sold across state lines,
establish high-risk insur-
ance pools to cover peo-
ple with pre-existing
conditions and limit friv-
olous lawsuits that drive
up the cost of health care.
What it doesn't do is
raise taxes, cut Medicare
for seniors or expand
government and add to
the deficit. Nor would it
offer insurance to illegals.
The nonpartisan Con-
gressional Budget Office
said this plan would lower
premiums by as much as
10 percent, making health
insurance $5,000 less
expensive than under the
bill that passed the House.
It would also reduce the
deficit by $68 billion dol-
lars.
That's a prescription
that makes sense. And a
plan America can afford.

sents Florida's 13th con-
gressional district.

"We haven't thrown in

"We're working with staff
to see if there are some
legal variations FDOT
could grant because of
the unique circum-
stances."
Which is a polite way


of saying the county and
community activists are
hoping the state will
bend its new interpreta-
tion of the rules because
the road project was so
messed up in the first
place.
Another way of saying
it is: Doh!

ed to pier use, gather information

tive to maintaining the fishing
pier for its best intended use,"
states the resolution.
The resolution would take
effect immediately upon passage.

Solutions sought
For years late-night drinking
and occasional smoking of illegal
substances has raised the ire of
some fishermen at the 720-foot-
long refurbished pier.
"It's the profanity more than
alcohol that's the problem," said a
local fisherman who asked not to
be identified. "They're overreact-
ing to the situation. It's just a few
kids, and occasionally an adult.
"There's a simple solution.
What they need is an undercover
cop to come out here two or three
times that's all it would take -
identify the troublemakers and
kick them off the pier.
"The police do a good job.
They come out and everyone
cleans up their language and
hides their beer, but when they

leave, the swearing starts up
again. Families from all over the
world come to the pier to enjoy
the sunset. They shouldn't have to
put up with that kind of lan-
guage.
The problems almost always
occur at night, say locals. Thus,
the city has frequently consid-
ered closing the pier at night. The
pier, located west of Sharky's On
The Pier restaurant on West
Harbor Drive, is currently open
24 hours a day, seven days a
week. A fishing license is not
required to fish off the pier.
Aloosely knit group of citizens
called Pier Watch formed a few
years ago but quietly disbanded.
"The group is not active," said
Venice resident Jim Leis, who
helped organize the group.
He said the group notified
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission if
fishing rules were violated, and
occasionally the Venice Police
Department if they saw ha-
rassment.
The group encouraged the
city to adopt a rule to permit only
two rods per person on the pier, a
reference to some zealous fisher-


men who use up to 10 rods and a
considerable amount of valuable
fishing real estate. That led to
some turf tantrums, said law
enforcement authorities.
The group also recommend-
ed council consider charging
nonresidents for pier access, and
match the hours of operations of
the pier to that of the bait shop,
which closes at 9 p.m.
The recommendations were
never adopted.
"We didn't get what we felt was
alot of interest from the city," Leis
said. "Theywere understaffed and
had higher priorities than the pier.
It's the same problem bigger
pile, smaller shovel."
Law enforcement did start
coming out more, and the city
put up some signs that seem to
have helped, Leis said.
"Sharky's and the pier is a des-
tination. It's a draw for Venice,
probably the biggest tourist
attraction we've got," he said. "I
don't want to see so many rules
out there that it restricts the fun,
but something needs to be done,
apparently."

Election complaints



filed against sheriff


BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
STAFF WRITER

A seven-member Tallahas-
see board has 10 days to review
complaints filed against Sara-
sota County Sheriff Tom
Knight for alleged election vio-
lations.
Knight will receive a notice
from the Florida Elections
Commission within two weeks
on the board's vote regarding
claims he accepted illegal cam-
paign contributions from busi-
nesses not registered with the
state.
The complaint was lodged
by the Caltrop Watchdog
Group, a nonprofit organiza-
tion created to "oversee short-
falls, injustices and oversights
by Sarasota County govern-
ment and its officials."
Caltrop contends some of
Knight's contributions were


from companies that do not
exist on a state database.
According to a Caltrop Web
site post Wednesday, Knight
believed the FEC did not have
"proper jurisdiction to handle
the complaint."
Caltrop officials responded
on the Web site by calling
Knight's alleged comment
"ludicrous," adding that the
FEC plans to move forward
with the case.
The hearing is not open to
the public, and Knight did not
attend.
But Knight said he hasn't
said a word about the com-
plaint.
"I've been given written
instructions by the state that
I'm not allowed to talk about
this matter," Knight said
Wednesday. "I can't discuss it,
but I'm certainly not going to
lose any sleep over it."

"concerns within our commu-
nity regarding the impact of
the airport on our public golf
course."
In March he wrote again,
asking for an investigation into
FAA's Orlando office, saying the
FAA "failed to consistently ap-
ply regulations by asserting
strict compliance in some
areas and not in others."
Rafferty says the FAA inap-
propriately changed an airport
layout plan to allow aircraft
storage hangars in an area des-
ignated for a terminal. Other
"failures," according to Raf-
ferty, were the approval of
widening and strengthening
runway 13-31 without proper


environmental reviews, accep-
tance of exaggerated opera-
tions counts to develop long-
range forecasts and designa-
tion of an airport reference
code resulting in 24 residences
being placed in a runway pro-
tection zone.
The FAA replied to Rafferty
in April, saying it was working
with the city and, indeed, had
previously advised the city it
could approve a hangar in the
areas formerly labeled as a ter-
minal area and future apron. It
insisted the city was not out of
compliance with its grant
assurances by continuing with
development of the hangars
already approved by the FAA.


In July the FAA wrote back
to Martinez saying it had
already responded to Rafferty's
concerns and had not been
inconsistent with its rulings.
Environmental impact stud-
ies were not required for the
rehabilitation of runway 13-31,
wrote Catherine Lang of the
FAA Orlando Office, because
the potential impacts associat-
ed with the rehab "did not have
a significant adverse effect on
the human environment and
needed no further environ-
mental analysis." Under the
National Environmental Policy
Act, the FAA issued an "exclu-
sion finding."
As for the exaggerated air-


port count, council member
Sue Lang said "the airport
sponsor (the city) is responsi-
ble for developing proper fore-
casts for its airport."
She said the airport refer-
ence code is developed during
master planning, and is not
issued by the FAA. The city is
currently seeking to down-
grade the airport to a B-II ARC,
which favors smaller planes,
from its current C-II ARC listed
on the city's 2000 Airport
Master Plan document. The
ARC is based on the number of
operations and types of aircraft
using the airport.
In July, Martinez replied to
Rafferty just before he re-


signed, saying he hoped the
information found in the FAA's
response was useful. His re-
placement, Sen. George ,
picked up the issue, according
to a source, resulting in this
week's visit from the Office of
the Inspector General.
The city expects to hear
back from federal authorities
within a month.
Public Information Officer
Pam Johnson characterized
the visit as "information gath-
ering" and said city officials are
"cooperating in every way they
can in response to a letter a cit-
izen wrote to a congressman."

homes, for hurricane strength-
ening and improving energy
efficiency.
She wants to make it a leg-
islative priority for the city to
urge the state to enact laws
allowing personal home ex-
emptions for retrofitting, and
the federal government to
increase the existing $1,500 tax
credit for energy efficiency
improvements to $5,000.
"The $1,500 doesn't give
much of an incentive right
now," Lang said. "We have
company in Venice (where)
people could be put back to
work manufacturing doors
and windows."
Council will take the issue
up at its Nov. 24 meeting.
Council Member John
Moore agreed the tax abate-
ment program is worth pursu-
ing.
"The same incentives have
already been articulated by the
county's Economic Develop-
ment Corporation," he said.
"It's almost like an opportunity
has fallen in our lap here."


The program would grant a
tax exemption when a busi-
ness expands its property or
work force.
"We're not giving them any-
thing, but deferring," he said.
"I think it's a win-win situation.
"If we could work with
county to add (our) initiative
to the referendum sometime
next year, when they do the
school board (referendum),
and let voters decide, then I
think it would be a wonderful
opportunity."
Qualified support
Council Member Kit
McKeon supported the busi-
ness program but was cau-
tious about supporting a "give-
away" for individuals.
"A tax abatement for a busi-
ness as proposed by the EDC
- I am a million percent sup-
portive of that," McKeon said.
"Quite frankly, in the long run
if they are successful we will
gain that money back.
"On the exemption for the
individual houses like my own,
I'm more comfortable (sup-
porting) tax exemptions at the


national level. When I realize
our ad valorem tax base is so
small within the city of Venice,
I don't see a payback ... other
than emotionally. My sister, for
example, qualified for a grant
to get hurricane windows.
Those I would support ... (but)
I don't want to see us at the
moment ... giving tax relief for
people like myself to go and
improve the quality or green-
ness of my house."
McKeon said, however, he'd
keep an open mind on it and
asked for more analysis of the
programs.
"There's a lot of council
interest in this," said Mayor Ed
Martin. "I think we should look
at all of them.
"I just bought a new air
conditioner and got the
$1,500 plus a little rebate
from Florida Power & Light,
so if the federal government
would like to do more that
would be great, and I cer-
tainly think it's a legitimate
thing for us to put forward."

alarm. My boss managed to get
out of the zip-ties and called 9-
1-1. We heard them yell, 'Juan,
Juan, Juan!' or maybe 'One,
one, one!' I think they might
have gone out the side door by
the cash room after that,"
Myette said.
Inside, the remaining six
people had their hands tied
behind their backs with zip-
ties, and they lay, some face-
down, in the aisles. The rob-
bers didn't see everyone in the


store, however.
"My friend Morgan Najm's
mom was there and said she
actually hid in between the
rugs hanging up in the store,"
Venice High senior Kelly Taylor
said.
Perfect attendance
Rachel McCandless, also a
senior atVenice High, was out-
side the discount clothing
store during the robbery. She
was waiting for her friend


Halley Vanselow, who was in-
side.
"I was standing outside with
Halley's family; she was still in
there," McCandless said. "She
hid in the fitting rooms during
the whole thing."
She and other witnesses
said they could see someone
dressed in red and black crawl-
ing around on his hands and
knees. That led some people to
think that the gunmen still
might be in the store.


A crowd gathered during
the aftermath of the robbery.
"There were so many peo-
ple watching at Taco Bell ...
people were sitting on cars to
listen and watch for anything
to happen," said Venice High
senior Brett Norton.
Venice High sophomore
Najm, whose mother had hid-
den behind some rugs, said
her mom came out of the
ordeal with no problems.
"Nothing really bad hap-


opened, just two guys decided
to go in and hold up the place,"
she said. "My mom's fine."
Wednesday morning, most
of the victims had recovered
from the shock of the robbery.
Myette, for example, show-
ed up at school at 7:15 a.m. as
always.
The reason: She's had per-
fect attendance since kinder-
garten and wasn't about to let
something as inconsequential
as a robbery spoil that record.

ample of the partnership
and collaboration of law
enforcement agencies in
this county," she said. "It
was in our jurisdiction,
but we knew in minutes
we would need the
Sheriff's Office Tactical
Unit and the helicopter."
Williams and Sheriff
Tom Knight were on
scene the entire time.
"This sheriff under-
stands collaboration and
maximizing tax dollars,"
Williams said.
The Sarasota Police
Department SWAT Team
also was present that
night.
On the downside, SNN
Local News 6 broadcast
the situation live.
"They ran a live feed to
include all tactical ma-
neuvers," Williams said.
"By doing that, so many
lives were placed at risk."
There was also the
issue of VPD Capt. Tom
McNulty asking the cam-
eraman if he was running
it live and the camera-
man telling him "no."
As it turned out, the
gunmen had fled the
scene apparently before
the SWAT team arrived,
but at the time that was-
n't known.
"If they'd been inside
watching or someone
else was watching and
giving them the informa-
tion," Williams said, "they
would have seen every-
thing before it happened
and it could have result-
ed in hostages getting
shot."
Because of that, VPD
communicated with
Sarasota Herald-Tribune
Executive Editor Mike
Connelly. The Herald-
Tribune partners with
SNN.
"We told SNN that
until appropriate action
on their part to remedy
what happened on Tues-
day night, our working
relationship is seriously
affected," Williams said.
The Herald-Tribune
also reported that a VPD
report said the building
wasn't surrounded.
Salones and McNulty,
who were both on scene,
said that isn't true.
"The reporter was
reporting from a report
and it wasn't written in
that report, but every
door was covered," Sa-
lones said.


Salones said many
people were very helpful
that night.
"Taco Bell closed the
front part of its business
so we could take the
employees there to inter-
view them," he said. "Dr.
Johnson came to the
scene, too, in case we
needed to use his build-
ing."
How it went down
Police received the call
at 9:30 p.m. and were on
scene shortly thereafter
but the suspected rob-
bers, as it turned out,
were likely gone by then.
Hostages gave con-
flicting information
about whether the gun-
men were still in the
store or had already left,
according to Sarasota
County Sheriff's Office


Community Liaison
Officer Wendy Rose. So,
for the next three hours
the Sarasota County
SWAT Team methodical-
ly searched the building,
releasing hostages along
the way.
The store was open
when the gunmen enter-
ed. Four employees and
two shoppers were taken
hostage while at least
eight people escaped
from more than one lo-
cation in the store.
They ran to Sweetbay
Supermarket for help.
Solanes said a Sweet-
bay employee was stand-
ing outside the back door
of Sweetbay smoking,
and he let the employees
in to call 9-1-1 so they
didn't have to go around
to the front of the build-
ing.


It wasn't until after
midnight that the hos-
tages were able to exit
under machine gun cov-
er of the SWAT team.
At 12:15 a.m. Wednes-
day a single person scur-
ried out of TJ Maxx fol-
lowing speakerphone in-
structions by sheriff's
deputies. She was follow-
ed a few minutes later by
three more women.
At 12:29 a large group
of SWAT members enter-
ed the store in single file.
Fourteen minutes later
another women made
her way out of the store
to safety.
Five minutes after that
a store employee was
dragged out on a blanket
by a single SWAT team
member, placed on an
ambulance gurney and
removed from the scene.


She is a store employee,
Rose said, who was shak-
en up and received a
minor cut after being
shoved to the ground by
one of the suspects.
At 12:48 a.m. three
more women exited the
store safely.
Officers escorted the
hostages to the nearby
SuperMatt Laundry, but
it was too close to the
scene, so they were then
taken to Taco Bell and
debriefed. Family mem-
bers, and later the hos-
tages, gathered outside
the building but would
not talk with the media.
On Friday, Solanes
said they have tips that
the gunmen were on foot
and others that there was
a car in the area.
"We stopped a car on
Albee Farm Road, but it


clearly wasn't them," he
said.
Hundreds of bystand-
ers flocked to the scene
upon learning about the
hostage-taking through
the media. They cheered
from U.S. 41 Venice By-
pass and the Taco Bell
parking lot as each per-
son ran to safety.
At 1:30 a.m. more than
20 SWAT members emerg-
ed from the building, sig-
naling an end to the
search. Shortly afterward
the VPD canine unit con-
ducted a secondary
search. By then the
crowd had begun to dis-
perse and the hostages
were being allowed to
leave with family or
friends.

FOOTBALL CLASS 5A-REGION 3 QUARTERFINAL





Indians bedeviled by St. Pete



Venice rally stalls in


season-ending loss


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


The silent walk off the field
and shock on the faces of the
Venice High football players
spoke volumes.
In the end, the Indians
couldn't overcome a 14-point
first-half deficit as St. Peters-
burg used a ball-controlling
offense to pull off a 28-21
upset victory to end Venice's
season in the Class 5A-Region
3 quarterfinals on Friday at
Powell-Davis Stadium.
"We got beat by a good foot-
ball team," said Venice coach
John Peacock.
The Green Devils (10-1) will
play at Manatee (10-1) on Nov.
27 in the regional semifinals.
St. Petersburg, which is
ranked No. 8 in the Class 5A


state poll, showed its strength
with its Wing-T offense and
ground game from the start
with an eight-play, 76-yard
drive to take a 7-0 lead at the
end of its first possession.
On the night, St. Pete ended
with 302 yards, including 283
on the ground, a season-high
against the Indians this season.
The Green Devils chewed up
chunks of yards with four runs
of 14 yards or more. Ben Sams
and Rashad Lewis had 29 yards
rushing each on the drive. Sams
scored on a 10-yard run up the
middle with seven minutes left
in the first quarter.
St. Petersburg's defense set

touchdown drive by sacking

VOLLEYBALL CLASS 5A STATE SEMIFINAL




Venice comes up short


BY PERRY D. PENTZ
SPORTS EDITOR


With what Venice has
accomplished on the national
stage this season, a state
championship should have
been at the end.
However, Tallahassee Leon
derailed those plans as the
Lady Lions used blocking and
digging to sweep the Lady
Indians, 25-23, 25-11, 25-22,
and abruptly end Venice's sea-
son in the FHSAA Class 5A
state semifinals on Wednesday
at The Lakeland Center.
Stuart Martin County (31-1)
ended up winning the state
title by beating Leon in four
games.
The end of a dream came
up short for Venice's six
seniors.
Blocking which has been
Venice's go-to defense of the
season was missing against
Leon.
The Lady Indians failed to
record a block in the match
while the Lady Lions finished
with 14 blocks.
Venice also struggled all
match to get a ball to hit the
floor as Leon players laid their
bodies out all over the court to
dig the Lady Indians' shots.
"They were touching every-
thing they possible could (at
the net)," said Venice senior
Jillian Allen. "They were very
scrappy tonight."
Venice head coach Brian
Wheatley was proud of his
team this year in what they
accomplished.
"They put Venice High on a
national level," said Wheatley
as the team was placed eighth
in the prestigious ASICS
Challenge in Chicago.
"Chicago was amazing and
making it to the final four was
amazing," said senior Emily
Daniels, who had nine kills
and 13 digs. "I'm just proud of
us. I don't regret anything
about this team except not
playing our best tonight. I
think we were playing not to

lose other than to win. That
was our only real mistake."
Wheatley, in his 16th year,
knows his offense needed to be
better.
"We just couldn't get in
synch with our offense, which
has pretty much carried us this
year," said Wheatley "They did
a great job of attacking us and
keeping us out of system. We
hit .056 as a team, which I
would say that maybe one our
lowest hitting percentages of
the year. It's tough to compete
when you barely hit over zero."
Venice had more kills, 39-
36, than Leon but the Lady
Indians also had 31 errors
compared to eight for the Lady
Lions.
Helping the Lady Lions was
the fact this was their fourth
straight trip to the final four
and it showed from the mid-
way point of the first game.
Leon led 8-7 before rattling off
eight straight points to grab a
16-7 lead just 11 minutes into
the match.


"I think the experience that
Leon had of being here the last
three years absolutely helped
them and prepare them for
tonight's match," said
Wheatley "(Leon coach) Joy
(Becker) does a great job with
their team and they are very
well disciplined. They played


Joey Carlin off an assist by George Shreiber.
In the second half, Venice scored the winning goal

an overall better game than
us."
The Lady Indians didn't go
quietly as they rallied from the
nine-point deficit to eventually
tie the first game at 22-22 on a
lift violation by the Lady Lions
(25-5). A kill by junior Autumn
Duyn, who had nine in the first


game, gave Venice its first lead,
23-22. Leon scored the next
three points including a kill,
hitting error by Venice and
block by Taylor Vaughn to give
them a 1-0 advantage.
"I think it would have been
a huge difference," said Allen
about winning the first game.
"We would have had the
momentum. It would have got
us going. I definitely think it
would have been a different
ball game if we would have got
that first game."
The second game turned
out to be Venice's worst of the
season.
The Lady Lions jumped out
early and kept the pressure on
Venice as the Lady Indians had
just seven kills and Duyn was
limited to one kill.
"They did have pretty good
blocking," said Duyn. "We
were out of system and it's
harder to get a good approach
and strong swing when it's
coming from a different area."
"They were definitely pre-
pared on defense," said
Wheatley. "We weren't swing-
ing as hard as we normally do.
The outside attack is huge.
They have to terminate balls. It
all goes back to the two con-
tacts before that as well. Our
outside (hitters) have carried
us all year and have done a
great job of making plays.
When we were able to swing
tonight, we were very success-
ful."
In the second game, Venice
had 13 errors while Leon had
10 kills including five by
Marcella Desloge and just one
hitting error.
"They have a setter (Molly
Pearce) that does a great job of
mixing things up and moving
the floor around," said
Wheatley "Obviously, Alex
Johnson is one of the best play-
ers in the state.
Johnson, who signed with
the University of Miami, fin-
ished with 14 kills and 15 digs.

LOSS from Page 10A


at the Venice 7-yard line.
After a 37-yard punt, St. Petersburg
only needed to drive 44 yards.
St. Pete overcame four penalties to
add another touchdown as quarter-
back David Jones scored on a 1-yard
sneak up the middle with 2:26 left in the
first quarter. The PAT gave the Green
Devils a 14-0 lead. A key run on the
drive was a 21-yarder by Sams down to
the Venice 1-yard line. Sams rushed for
65 yards on six carries in the first quar-
ter.
The Green Devils' defense, which
allowed only 12.1 points a game with
four shutouts, didn't allow Venice's
offense to get rolling in the first half as
they were limited to 50 yards total.
St. Petersburg's offense amassed 149
yards in the first quarter, all on the
ground. The Green Devils finished with
196 yards in the first half.
It was the first time all season that
Venice, which averaged 38.2 points per
game, was held scoreless in a half.
"I can't put a finger on it," Peacock
said. "I think it might have hurt us a lit-
tle bit (having a week off.... We just had
a tough time getting it going offensive-
ly. I don't know what it was."
Venice (9-2), which was ranked No. 3
in the state, came out fired up in the
second half and attempted a come-
back.
The Indians got on the scoreboard
with 4:12 left in the third quarter with
the help of a roughing-the-punter
penalty to keep a drive alive.
Three penalties pushed Venice back
to its 49-yard line. On third-and-25,

Burton connected with Josh Boyle
down the left sideline for a 51-yard
scoring strike.
The Green Devils ran nearly four
minutes off the clock before being
forced to punt.
"They were a better football team
than us," Peacock said.
Venice was pinned back at its 12-
yard line and punted after six plays.
St. Petersburg's Dondre Davis
returned a punt 24 yards down to the
Indians' 26-yard line.
The Indians' defense, which held St.
Pete to just 106 yards in the second half,
held strong and held the Green Devils
to a potential 36-yard field goal.
However, St. Pete's Adam Christner
ran 10-yards off a fake field goal giving
the Green Devils first and goal at the 9-
yard line.
"Good call by them," Peacock said.
"Obviously it was huge if you look back.
I thought for sure they were going to
kick it to put them up by two scores
because that guy has a pretty good leg."
Four plays later, Jones scored on a
quarterback sneak up the middle with
4:57 left in the game for a 21-7 lead.
The Indians' offense wasted little
time in scoring asVenice needed just 57
seconds to cross the goal line as Burton
scored on a 6-yard run. Big plays in the
drive were catches of 49 and 13 yards by
Boyle, who finished with 182 yards on
seven catches. The PAT by Joey Carlin
had Venice trailing by 21-14 with four
minutes left.
Once again, Venice's defense held
tough and forced another punt by St.
Pete.
The Indians got possession with 2:15


remaining at their 27-yard line.
On the first play from scrimmage, St.
Pete defensive back Calvin Robinson
jumped in front of the Venice receiver
for an interception and returned it 29
yards for a deciding touchdown.
"I couldn't really see what hap-
pened," said Peacock about the inter-
ception.
It was only the second interception
of the season for Burton and first since
the fourth game.
Venice still had one drive left in the
season as the Indians drove 71 yards on
11 plays. Boyle scored on a 16-yard pass
from Burton with 34 seconds left.
The Indians tried an onside kick but
the Green Devils recovered it to seal the
win.
Burton finished 12-of-29 for 242
yards. On the season, he was 123-of-
212 for 2,114 yards with 20 touch-
downs.
The Indians lose 27 seniors to gradu-
ation but return nine of 10 starters on
defense.
"These seniors have been here for
three years," said Peacock. "They
came in here we had won four (five)
games in two years. We won 27 games
years in last three years. They did a
good job. They got us back on the
right track. Great examples on and off
the field. I am going to miss coach
them. I loved everyday going to prac-
tice coaching those kids. I am going
to miss them. There is nothing I can
say to them to make them feel better
now."

Pearce, who signed with
the University of West
Florida, had 30 assists
and 13 digs. Both players
were starters for last
year's final four team.
The 11 points in the
second game was the
fewest by Venice all sea-
son. The team's previous
low was 15 against
Tampa Berkeley Prep on
Sept. 26.
"We couldn't get a
swing really," said Venice
setter Taylor Capasso,
who had 33 assists and
seven digs. "Tonight we
just couldn't get it
rolling."
Venice tried to change
its lineup in the third
game by inserting differ-
ent players.
"We wanted to give
them a new look," said
Wheatley. "This match
really wasn't about
match-ups. It was just a
matter of this whole year,
it's rare if we actually had
the best player on the
floor. Usually we have the
best team on the floor.
We are a team. Everyone
has to be rolling and
moving and making the
right decisions. Where
one or two of those facets
veer off, then it's tough
for us to stay in synch."
Wheatley tried not to
focus on what Leon was
doing but had to figure
out what his team need-
ed to do better.
The third game was
tied nine times. Venice
had its biggest lead of the
match at 18-16 on a kill
by Daniels.


"I was real proud of
them, to get beat like
they did in the second
game, then to come back
and compete in the end
there," said Wheatley.
"We just didn't get the
swings we needed."
Leon then scored
seven straight points
with two blocks and a kill
by Vaughn and two kills
by Wavie Chin to grab a
23-18 lead.


"We weren't making
runs at points," said
Wheatley "We didn't
make enough points
consecutively at a time.
Leon did a great job of
putting points together
and keeping the pressure
on to score."
Venice got within
three points but no clos-
er as a kill by Johnson
ended the match.
This was the third


meeting between the
teams.
"We split (matches), so
it was a matter of who was
going to come out in the
other team's head," said
Wheatley. "That's how it's
been the last two match-
es. First time we wanted
to destroy them, the sec-
ond time they wanted to

,- I miss those days.

holds up her completed Old days
It has been many years since I've crafted ornaments. I think about it every year,
but never get around to it. I've missed putting Christmas music on and losing
myself in the peace and serenity of creating.
So I was especially excited when I learned that fabric artist Debbie Jones was
tLaching an ornament-making class. I'll admit part of the intrigue was that it
involved no stitching or gluing. How could you possibly make an ornament with-
out at least one of those things? I longed to return to the tradition of making
holiday ornaments and these were gorgeous.
Jones was teaching the Folded Star Fabric Ornament class at Deborah's Quilt
IL Iket, where she often teaches her Fabric Decollage Landscape and Seascape class-
S~.,Is well as fabric jewelry and greeting cards using her unique gluing technique.You
c al see some of Jones' artwork at Abbacino Galleria, 243 W. Venice Ave.
Scvcial women gathered around the classroom table in the Quilt Basket to make orna-
ments. Jones supplied the plastic foam balls, fabric scraps, pins and ribbons to all participants.
Deborah Iversen, owner of the store, carries many of the supplies needed for Jones' classes.
The pins are small straight pins that will stick through several layers of fabric and into the plastic foam ball.

NOV. 21, 2009 WEEKEND EDITION


BALL from Page 1 B


The fabric was cut into small
squares, and Jones began
explaining the folding tech-
nique.
Women chatted as they
folded and pinned and fussed
with fabric. It was almost like
gathering around the dining
table of old.
Watching the ornaments
emerge as you carefully folded
and pinned and dreamed
about just where you would
hang your finished folded star
ornament was all part of the
magic.


Obviously, the ornaments
can be hung on your tree or
from an ornament stand, but
Jones likes hanging them on
her door knobs.

Wonky
As the class began, Jones
reminded crafters that practice
makes perfect and suggested
their first ornament might not
be as good as future ones.
"Your first ornament will
probably be a wee bit wonky,"
she said.
This was comforting to class
participants who were agoniz-


ing over dividing the ball into
four equal parts.
When all of the fabric is
folded and pinned into place
on the ball, then it's time to add
the ribbons. If making bows
has always been a challenge
for you, Jones has an easy
method you will love.
Part of the intrigue with this
craft is that your own creativity
plays a huge role in how the
ornament looks in the end.
And it can have a different look
on front and back. You choose
the fabrics and the colors.
Jones even has a Halloween
folded-star ornament. Also


exciting is that the pattern
includes several variations for
you to try.
As you become proficient
and enjoy adding your own
creativity to the design and
process, you'll be proud to give
these elegant ornaments to
your most discriminating
friends and relatives. Just im-
agine their delight when they
receive a Folded Star Fabric
Ornament made of blue and
silver or green and red or pink
and silver or lime green and
royal blue. It will be beautiful,
unusual and, most important,
from you.


The next Folded Star Fabric
Ornament class will be held on
Dec. 10 at Deborah's Quilt
Basket, 337 W Venice Ave. The
three-hour class costs $30 and
includes the $10 pattern and
all supplies to make one orna-
ment. To sign up for the class
visit Deborah's Quilt Basket or
call the store, 488-6866. Seat-
ing is limited and on a first-
come, first-served basis.

Inside and out




New Haven is a fal spectacular


BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR


The crisp fall air for
some New Englanders is
a signal to pack up their
shorts, dust off their
favorite Parrot Head ball-
cap and head to Paradise
for the winter months.
Next year, why not set
aside time for an inex-
pensive two-day Yale ex-
cursion?
The charm and histo-
ry of New Haven, Conn.
- the Elm City are
unparalleled. It is home
to Yale University, which
was founded in 1701 and
is the third-oldest higher
education institution in
the United States.
Within a few short
blocks are two of the
world's great museums,
international cuisine
and one of America's
most influential uni-
versities with its gothic
architecture set amid
fall colors.
Here's the skinny for a
great vacation.
Dining
Don't make plans for
dinner. Just stroll down
Chapel Street at the foot
of Yale's old campus and
take your pick of world
cuisines. There's no
shortage of white-linen
dining or of authentic
Asian restaurants that
won't dent your pocket-
book. Want a local to
make a recommenda-
tion? Visit the city's pock-
et visitor center at 1000
Chapel St. Someone
there will give you direc-
tions and even make
your reservations.
Theater
A few blocks down
Chapel Street is the criti-
cally acclaimed Yale


Repertory theater. Fun
fact: Meryl Streep is just
one of the country's most
distinguished actors to
come out ofYale's profes-
sional school of the arts
- the Yale Conservatory
of Drama which, like
the FSU/Asolo Conserv-
atory of Actor Training, is
one of the 10 major actor
training programs in the
country.
Museums
Take your pick here
but don't try to tackle all
three in one day. Across
from the theater, still on
Chapel Street, the Yale
University Art Gallery,
founded in 1832, is con-
sidered one of the major
public art museums in
the country. It houses an-
cient, medieval and Ren-
aissance art, Near and
Far Eastern art, works by
European and American
masters and modem art.
Across the street is the
Yale Center for British
Art. Opened in 1977, it
houses the largest collec-
tion of British art and
illustrated books any-
where outside the United
Kingdom. It was funded
by an endowment from
Paul Mellon, son of in-
dustrialist Andrew Mel-
lon, one of the wealthiest
men in America in the
Roaring '20s. Mellon,
who went to Yale, also
studied at Cambridge
where he grew fond of
British culture.
The museum's perma-
nent collection features
more than 2,000 paint-
ings by the likes of British
masters William Ho-
garth, Thomas Gainsbor-
ough and J.M.W Turner,
European masters Ru-
bens and Van Dyck and
Americans John Single-
ton Copley and James

able, or visit the Pierpont House at 149 Elm St. for a free tour escorted by a student guide.


McNeill Whistler.
Yale's Peabody Mu-
seum of Natural History,
founded in 1866, houses
one of the great dinosaur
artifacts collections in
North America, includ-
ing the largest intact
brontosaurus in the
world.
The Peabody is a
working museum, so
don't be surprised to see
conservation experts at
work cleaning exhibits or
murals, or high school
kids on a school assign-
ment.
There's also the Col-
lection of Musical Instru-

Yale visitor center
For a free tour of Yale
University, visit the
Pierpont House at 149
Elm St. across the street
from the New Haven
Green (so large the three
churches encompassed
in it are dwarfed). The
center is the oldest sur-
viving house in New
Haven (1767). It was the
family home of the
grandson of one ofYale's
founders.
The guided tours are
led by Yale University
undergraduates. Special
tours and foreign lan-
guage tours are available
for a fee by appointment.
But don't rush up there


next week without
checking for blackout
dates. There will be no
tour on Harvard-Yale
Game Day, Nov. 21.
Before you leave, give
a toast to Edmund Fan-
ning, the secretary to the
British general and Yale
graduate in 1757.
As the story goes,
British troops at that
time invaded New Haven
in response to support at
Yale for the American
Revolution. Fanning per-
suaded the British to
leave without burning
the city.

Shell Factory remodeling and revamping for season


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

One of the last re-
maining roadside tourist
meccas, the Shell Fac-
tory, just north of Fort
Myers, is making
changes.
"Expanding" is the
word owner Tom Cronin
used in a Nov. 2 press
release.
A pirate-themed grot-
to is being added, and
the menu at the factory's
on-site restaurant is
being changed to fit the
new look. Reworking the
Pirates of the Caribbean
and the movie of the
same name has given
pirates near-celebrity
status, which has not

gone unnoticed by
Cronin's crew. Within the
new grotto, animated
swashbucklers will inter-
act with visitors, who
now will have far more
to do than look at every-
thing one could possibly
make or do with a
seashell.
There will be no cost
to visit the new attrac-
tion, which is just inside
the entrance to the icon-
ic building that has con-
tinued to draw tourists
despite the construction
of Interstate 75 several
miles to the east of the
factory's location on U.S.
41 (Tamiami Trail).
What there will be is a
whole new line of pirate-

FINE WHINES

Feline all right


BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR


The wife and I decided it had
been a long time since we'd heard
the pitter-patter of little feet
around the house (our sons typi-
cally clomp around like they're try-
ing to stomp a particularly thick-
skinned variety of grape), so we
made (another) life-altering deci-
sion: We adopted two kittens.
We've had Einstein and Yoda for
a few weeks now and, in the fine
tradition of cats since Fred
Flintstone "tamed" the saber-
toothed tiger, they have pretty
much taken over. We've enabled
that, since by general consensus
they are the cutest kittens in the
history of the world, but it may
come back to bite us, as it were.
For one thing, we already had
two boys who don't do what we tell
them to, expect to be waited on
hand and foot and threaten to eat
us out of house and home. Lucky
for them, they are the cutest sons
in the history of the world, or we
would have sent them to military
school by now. But they started
agitating for a pet, and someone
had these two abandoned orange
tabbies who needed a home, and
the boys promised they would take
care of them ...
So now we have four boys who
don't do what we tell them to, etc.
They are all awfully cute,
though.
Pound for pound, our sons have
nothing on Einstein and Yoda

Train Depot needs tour guides


STAFF REPORT


Jim Middleton, summer coordi-
nator of the Train Depot Tour
Guides, is looking for more people to
volunteer as a tour guide.
Part of the mission of the Venice
Area Historical Society is to tell sto-
ries about our wonderful city of

mind, why not consider being a
depot tour guide, or perhaps a
greeter?
The tours are short and informa-
tive. Volunteers will typically com-
mit to three hours a month for one
or two days. Interested people can
go to the depot and take a tour. For

when it comes to food. We think
the kittens are about 10 weeks old,
and they eat like they hadn't been
fed since birth. They slurp water in
about the same quantity, which
makes for a high level of activity in
the litter box, if you know what I
mean.
On the bright side, that means
the little guys are healthy. On the
not-so-bright side, the litter box is
in the laundry room, which is off
the master bedroom, which is not
where the two boys who pledged
to keep it clean sleep. Their bed-
room (and their bathroom, fortu-
nately for the wife and me) is on
the other side of the house, appar-
ently in the "low-fragrance zone."
Mind you, we all enter and exit
the house exclusively through the
garage, which is off the laundry
room, so the boys are regularly
exposed to the work the kittens
have been doing while we've been
gone all day. But the fatherly thrill
of changing that first diaper, if you
will, has long since worn off. Of
course, neither one of them can
tell when he is in desperate need of
a bath, so it could be a nasal issue
in part.
But this is all quibbling. We fully
intend to keep all four boys, even
though we'll have to pay to put two
of them through college and the
other two will never give us grand-
kitties. (Please don't tell them,
though. It's already hard enough to
get them to go to the vet.)

FAITH, VALUES AND LESSONS


Give from the heart, not for reward
SUBMITTED BY THE REV. DAVID MILLER
PASTOR OF FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH


Matthew 6:1-4
"Be careful not to do your
acts of righteousness before
men, to be seen by them. Ifyou
do, you will have no reward
from your Father in heaven.
So when you give to the needy,
do not announce it with trum-
pets, as the hypocrites do in
the synagogues and on the
streets, to be honored by men. I
tell you the truth, they have
received their reward in full.
But when you give to the
needy, do not let your left hand
know what your right hand is
doing, so that your giving may
be in secret. Then your Father,
who sees what is done in


secret, will reward you."

and why we do good
deeds ("acts of right-
eousness"). We are not
to stop doing good deeds; we
simply must examine our
motives.
Too many times good peo-
ple do good things for the
wrong reasons. The good deed
gets done, but God is not inter-
ested in our good deeds. God
doesn't need us to do anything
to help Him help His children.
God is interested in our hearts.
In fact, this is the underlying
message of the whole Sermon
on the Mount. Our outward
appearances, our outward
actions, are not what God is
interested in; God is interested
in our hearts. Once we get our
hearts aligned with God, then
our deeds will be good, and we
will be able to be "perfect,
therefore, as your heavenly
Father is perfect" (Matthew
5:48).
The quote about trumpets
being blown in the synagogues
and the streets announcing


someone's good deeds seems
ridiculous, but to put it into
modern terms, ask a fundrais-
er which is easier: to raise
funds for a building or for the
maintenance of a building.
The answer will always be a
building because people are
very eager to have a building
- as opposed to a mop -
named after them.
Many of our churches are
littered with plaques that
announce the good deeds of
some person from the past.
There is nothing wrong with
recognition, but if you are
doing something good in order
to have a plaque in your honor
attached to your good deed,
your motivations are wrong.
And what about this whole
matter of not letting your left
hand know what your right
hand is doing? What Jesus is
talking about is people who
have been so transformed by
their daily walk with God that
good deeds just naturally flow
from their character. They do

good naturally, often
automatically, simply
because of who they are.
They hardly notice their
good deeds and rarely
remember them. These
are people who have
God's attention and
become God's creative
partners in well-doing.
The proper motiva-
tion for doing good
deeds is God. God will
reward good deeds, but
that reward is not our
motivation. The last
thing we want to be
doing is attempting to
strike a deal with God -
"I will do this good deed
as long as you reward
me."
The reward is the icing
on the cake. The motiva-
tion is to have God say,
"Well done, good and
faithful servant." Our

HOROSCOPES FOR NOV. 2127, 2009


ARIES (March 21-April 19). Unlike
life in a comic strip, no person is
inherently good or evil. The difficult
people are simply behaving as they
have learned to in order to cope with
their own particular set of circum-
stances. Your compassion will be
required.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The
only difference between a rut and a
groove is your attitude. Figure out
how you feel about this routine you
have going. "Pretty good" isn't good
enough. See if you can't do something
to enliven the whole picture.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Avoid
being too rigid in your dealings, espe-


cially if you sense real talent in your
potential partner. A handshake is
sometimes all that's necessary to
begin an agreement that, over time,
becomes a dynasty.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You're
not into living life in the minor
league. You want to make the kind of
contributions that will outlive you.
What you may not realize is that it is
the small kindnesses that fit the bill
the best.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It's validat-
ing to be a part of another person's
development. You're merciful in this
position. You'll help someone save
face. In time, this person will under-


stand why the action they took was
unacceptable.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The word
that best describes your shining inner
light has not been invented yet. It's
more than "brilliant," "awesome" and
"breathtaking" combined. It's not your
birthday, but the stars are yours.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Thoreau
said: "I know of no more encouraging
fact than the unquestionable ability
of man to elevate his life by conscious
endeavor." You are taking control,
thinking things through and acting


with a clear head.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You
want to make a connection with
someone whose love will be deep and
abiding. If you can honestly say that
you love yourself with that kind of
intensity and loyalty, then you are on
your way.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Fondness and glad tidings gather
around you like leaves around a
young sapling. All you have to do is

You may suffer an accidental injury to your
spine and not know it until long after the
incident that caused it has been forgotten. It
may have happened during a period of
intense activity on the job, when you were
too busy to give it much thought. But if your
back has been injured, even in a minor way,
you will soon begin to feel pain and
discomfort. Sudden blows and jars to the
spine can cause injury. Back pain can be
caused by lifting, sprains or even the strain of

sitting or standing in one position for long
periods. If you slip or fall, it may provoke
laughter at the time, but not when pain makes
its presence known.
Any back problem or injury that is related
to your job is covered under the state's
workers' compensation law. This includes
treatment by a doctor of chiropractic. Without
resorting to drugs or surgery, your doctor of
chiropractic will use skilled manipulation and
other therapies to correct the spinal
misalignment.

HOROSCOPES from Page 11B

follow the course put before you and accept
the encouragement and advantages you are
given.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your mojo
is working. You don't have to use force to get
what you want.You smile that charming smile
of yours, and people open up their hearts and
wallets to give you what you want.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Work on the
larger problems of life like world peace or
finding a geeky friend a date. Your keen intel-
lect and vivid imagination are more than
enough to guarantee success.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your effort is
making a difference. You can't realize it in one
day. But when you look back on the year, your
heart will be full because of the very incre-
mental growing you do in the next 48 hours.

Award-winning 1956 Ford convertible


S'You Auto
Know'

Don
Royston

T his beautiful Fiesta
Red fully restored
"ragtop" was on
display, along with more
than 100 collector-type
vehicles, at the Sun
Papers Welcome Back
Car Show and Open
House on Nov. 14. Most
of the four-wheel gems
were in very good to
excellent condition.
Some were rare, such as
a 1912 Ford; a 1921 Wills
St. Clair; a 1942 Buick; a
1948 Packard; a 1949 MG
TC; a 1950 DeSoto; a
1954 Hudson Super Jet; a
1960 Edsel; a 1969 Opel;
a 1973 VW Camper; and
a very interesting 1954
Kaiser Darrin Roadster
with sliding doors that
was one of only 435
manufactured. Each of
these gleamed bumper
to bumper, however the
automobile that
appealed to the
publisher and his wife
was the eye-catching
1956 Ford.
It looked, sounded and
smelled like the day of
delivery, and all who saw
this beauty agreed the
Publisher's Choice Award
was justified. Look at the
size of the trophy being
presented to the owner,
Bill Irwin, by Publisher
and President of the Sun
Papers David Dunn-
Rankin. It's so special
and different from
normal trophies -
besides being 7 feet 8
inches tall, there's even a
built-in clock. Gigantic
in size, thus too big to
take to shows, Irwin will
probably do what other
winners of this perpetual
prize have done -
arrange for a blown-up,
framed photograph
suitable to display at
hobby events. The actual
trophy remains in his
possession until the
Fourth Annual Welcome
Back Show next fall.
Bragging rights to
having won this presti-
gious prize can continue
on for years.
Immediately following
the event, Lee took
several photos and I
briefly interviewed Bill
and his wife Donna
regarding their back-
ground with vintage
cars. They cooperated as
best they could, however
"busyness" around us
was simply too great for
developing an in-depth
story. We both agreed it
would be better for them
to write up a guideline
about their personal past
life and details of this
particular car I could
use. The result was
fascinating for me as I
read the text, almost
eight pages. Due to
space limitations, I
selected highlights as
follows:
"From the time I was a
teenager back in
Michigan, I had a
fascination for cars. My
first car was a 1936 Ford
V8. I was only 14 and
had limited mechanic's
skills, so the '36 never
made it out of the yard
and onto the road. I still
remember that car and

how proud it made me
feel to own it. At 18 I
went to work at a Kaiser
Frazer automobile plant
(in) mail delivery. There I
earned enough money to
buy a real running auto
that I could drive. It was
a 1941 FordV8 two-door
sedan.
"Shortly after that I
enlisted in the U.S. Army
for a three-year stint.
Out of basic training I
was stationed in
Baltimore, Md., for a
year. While there I was
able to purchase a 1949
Oldsmobile for trips
home. It was a baby blue
Fastback with a Dynamic
88 V8. A real beauty! I
was lucky enough to be
shipped out to Germany.
The year and a half I
spent there was a great
experience. (Upon)
discharge I went home,
where my folks stored
the '49 Olds for me so I
would have wheels to
use.
"I immediately
enrolled in what is now
Eastern Michigan
University, spending five
years studying that
resulted in a B.S. degree
in liberal arts, with an
English major. Also
during that time period I
met and married my
wife, Donna. (Now 52
years later, we have four
grown children, 12
grandchildren and one
great-grandchild.) There
wasn't much time to
think about cars except
for transportation.
"My first real job was
as an accountant at the
Chevrolet Willow Run
Corvair plant. That work
experience with GM was
a valuable one for me,
but I decided I didn't
want to spend my life as
a corporate employee.
"In 1966, I left
Chevrolet and became
an employee of the
University of Michigan,
also in the financial area.
This gave me the flexi-
bility to spend more
time on a new business I
started earlier that year.
(The business was)
equipment rental, which


was opened in Ypsilanti
and was being run by my
brother-in-law, who is
also part owner. I am still
involved in the owner-
ship of the business
today, although it is run
by other family
members.
"We vacationed in
Florida and somehow
ended up in North Port
in 1987, making us true
'Snowbirds,' spending
three months here
during the winter. I also
had gotten in the old car
hobby up north, owning
1965 to 1968 Mustangs,
which belong to family
members now.
"The desire to own
one really good car for
show and go was still
with me, then came a
heart operation that
convinced me to get
serious in looking for
such a vehicle. A chance
meeting with another
North Port snowbird,
Bob Patten of Maine, a
partner in 'Vintage Cars
of North Port,' which is a
semi-private fenced-in
building with a club-
house atmosphere. He
owned a tangerine-and-
white 1956 Ford convert-
ible I seriously liked, but
it was not for sale. Bob
introduced me to Skip
Mucci, the other partner
of their operation who is
from the Boston area. He
too owned a 1956 Ford
convertible, only with a
full frame off restoration
that could be bought.
"Photographs
convinced me this was
the one I wanted. My
wife and I went to his
northern residence in
Malden, saw this great
automobile, finalized the
deal, and Skip arranged
to have it shipped to
(the) Michigan resi-
dence. We drove it
regularly for shows and
cruise-ins, winning
prizes along the way.
That was (May 5, 2005),
thus the auto (with
which) we won the
award at the Sun papers
is nicknamed the "05.'
The Pattens and the
Muccis have become
our personal friends and
have visited us in
Michigan during the
great Woodward Ave.
Cruise."
Now you know why
they are so proud of this
long-awaited dream car.

Venice =





-1 -,
S Roo rr


When Frank Higel and his
family arrived in what is now
Venice in 1884, he purchased
some land on Roberts Bay
from Richard Roberts, who
had lived there for a little
more than a decade. The
Higels planted orange groves,
built boats and fished in the
area along the Gulf and bay
called Horse and Chaise.
The post office known as
Venice was located where
Nokomis is now. In 1911,
Bertha Honore Palmer, a
wealthy widow from Chicago,
found this area of Sarasota
County and bought thousands
of acres. Before she died, she
succeeded in moving the train
station terminal to the site
where the Historic Venice
Train Depot is now, causing
the area south of Hatchett
Creek to be renamed Venice,
and the former Venice,
renamed Nokomis.
In 1925, Dr. Fred Albee,
an orthopedic surgeon from
New York, moved to the area.
He brought famed city plan-
ner John Nolen to plan a mag-
nificent Italian-style city north
of Hatchett Creek. Before he
could bring his dream to
fruition, he sold most of his
land to the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers when
it made an offer he couldn't
refuse about $800,000
more than what he paid nine
weeks earlier.


Ihe BLE Realty
Corporation also acquired
Nolen's services, as well as
those of landscape architect
Prentiss French and New York
architectural firm Walker and
Gillette.
Nolen planned a city with
European amenities, side-
walks for walking and wide
streets for driving. Hotels
sprouted almost overnight
and beautiful Italianate spec
homes were built along West
Venice Avenue, between
downtown and the beach.
Bungalows went up along
Hatchett Creek and in
Edgewood off of East Venice
Avenue to house workers.
Meanwhile, the BLE trans-
ported northerners from its
headquarters of Cleveland and
other colder climates by train
to view the wonderful city it
was building. The develop-
ment during this Florida boom
period was intended to recoup
the BLE retirement fund,
which had dwindled due to
insecure investments.
Streets were laid out, street
lights lit up, drainage ditches
built, water lines installed and
a golf course created where
the island Publix now stands.
But the project, which Nolen
planned to span from the Gulf
of Mexico to the Myakka
River, would not see comple-
tion for several decades. On
April 29, 1929, the BLE


admitted to a loss ot $18 mil-
lion, packed up and left town.
Over the next 50 years,
there were few changes. A
few brief years during World
War II, the Army Air Base
(now Venice Municipal
Airport) brought new life to
town, with military families
moving here temporarily.
From 1932 to 1970, the
Kentucky Military Institute
made Venice its winter home.
The "island" of Venice did not
exist until the last segment of
the Intracoastal Waterway was
completed in 1967.
It was not until 1989 that
Nolen's plan was revived, his-
toric and theme districts
developed and the city's archi-
tectural review board formed.
About 15 years later, during
another real estate boom, John
Nolen's vision of stretching
the city from the Gulf waters
to the Myakka River was
finally realized with the devel-
opment of Venetian Golf &
River Club.
Much like 1929, today
there is not much construction
going on. But Venetians have
a passion for their hometown
and continue to protect its her-
itage, just the way John Nolen
planned it.

Discover Venice 2009-2010


























Whether you're a tourist, snowbird, short-
term visitor or even a lifelong resident like
myself, I'm sure you will find the 2009-
10 edition of Discover Venice one of the
must-keep resources of all our area has to
offer.
Within you'll find almost everything
you'll need to know about living the
Venice lifestyle, who to contact to get
your questions answered, emergency
information and how to get involved. Of
course, we also welcome you to contact


referrals.
The Venice area includes the commu-
nities of Osprey, Laurel, Nokomis, North
Venice, Venice and South Venice. While
each has its own unique quality, there is
one common thread that bonds us togeth-
er. To sum it up in one word, it is simply:
COMMUNITY.
We truly are a community in every
sense of the word. The Venice area attracts
and retains those who want to be a part of
something that seems to be in great


demand but is getting harder to find. This
is not just a place to live; this is a place to
call home.
Here you can experience the arts and
cultural amenities of much larger cities, be
reminded of our rich history, enjoy fine
dining with casual style and participate in
more outdoor activities than you can
count. There's something here for all ages
and outlooks.
And all of this comes with more than
10 miles of beach front, most with easy
public access minutes from any part of the
area. While we're known as the Shark's
Tooth Capital of the World, I think you
always will remember Venice for having
the best sunsets the world has seen.
If you haven't done so already, I hope
you'll consider making the Venice area
your permanent home. We welcome you!

Enjoy!

The many pocket parks
throughout Venice are part of
its charm and ambiance. That
is by design. When John
Nolen planned the city, he
placed many small parks, link-
ing walkways, providing a
place to rest and a feast for the
eyes.
Today, there are about
370 acres of parks inside the
city limits. Their uses range
from providing respite from
the hustle and bustle, to places
to gather for high-energy
sports of various kinds.
One of the most popular
parks is Paw Park at Brohard
Beach where dog owners can
take their best buddies for a
romp in the sand and a swim
in the gulf. Located on South
Harbor Drive, across the street
from the airport, it will soon
share amenities with Maxine
Barritt Park, and is a stone's
throw from the fishing pier
and a waterside restaurant.
At the north end of
Brohard Beach is Service Club
Park, named for the service


clubs in Venice that donated
money, time and muscle power
to create it. Picnic here and a
scrub jay is sure to be interest-
ed in what you're doing. The
gopher tortoise, another pro-
tected species, inhabits the
park as well.
Another popular place for
fishing and sunset watching is
Humphries Park, known by
locals as the South Jetty. It is
located at the north end of the
island of Venice, at the mouth
of the Intracoastal Waterway
and Gulf of Mexico, where the
most common activity is
pulling snook and mangrove
snapper from the water. It's a
good place to watch for dol-
phins and manatees, while
nearby, pelicans dive into the
competition for dinner.
A gathering place for
those who love action is
Wellfield Park, home of sever-
al soccer and Pop Warner foot-
ball fields, a croquet club, fit-
ness trails and tennis courts in
the adjacent Pinebrook Park.
It is located along Pinebrook
Road. Other tennis courts are
located at Hecksher Park on


\N -,[ V10[lk. ..\ k .I1 .11. 1
Woodmere Park on Jacaranda
Boulevard. These courts are
free.
For a longer trail hike, try
Venetian Waterway Park, a
wide sidewalk that lines both
sides of the Intracoastal
Waterway for 5 miles. Start on
the west side at the trailhead,
located under the Hatchett
Creek Bridge, and head south.
Along the way take in the
mural by Colleen Henry
depicting the history of Venice
on the Venice Gondolier Sun
building, a butterfly garden
and art work next to the high
school. Cross U.S. 41 for
sightings of bald eagles,
gopher tortoises, scrub jays
and possibly bobcats, not to
mention airplanes


.k1 1ig .ll .1111 .1 11d1g .11
Venice Municipal Airport and
all types of watercraft using
the ICW.
Near the northwest trail-
head is another mural, framed
by a water feature, located at
the base of the Hatchett Creek
Bridge on U.S. 41 Business
and West Tampa Avenue. Here
Michael Biehl Park welcomes
visitors with artwork by local
artist BJ Carson, depicting
native sea creatures. It adorns
the wall of the national award-
winning Venice Theatre.
On the east side, begin at
the Historic Venice Train
Depot near the Venice Avenue
Bridge. If the volunteer
docents are available, take a
quick tour and history lesson
at the train station before tak-
in, to the trail


-= Venice






Hike, bike or run north to the
Legacy Trail, which goes all the
way to Clark Road in Sarasota.
Or, turn south and go to
Shamrock Park and Nature Center
where 80 acres of natural area
invite exploration. There is a but-
terfly garden and, at times, guided
tours by Sarasota County Parks
and Recreation employees.
Centennial Park in the center
of downtown Venice is where
people gather to hear music, shop
at the Farmers Market on
Saturday mornings and take the
children and grandchildren to the
interactive fountain to cool off.
On two Friday nights every
month, the Gazebo is stage to a
light-rock band. During some
afternoons in winter season, big
band music draws a crowd.
Centennial Park is located
between West Venice and West
Tampa avenues.
Venice Myakka River Park is
expected to open in early 2010.
Located at the east end of Laurel
Avenue on the Myakka River, it
will have picnic facilities, rest-


rooms and a place to launch a
kayak or canoe.
For a more extensive
encounter with nature, travel
about 10 miles north, on U.S. 41,
to Oscar Scherer State Park. Learn
about alligators, birds and native
plants from educational displays.
Then get a first-hand look at them
while trekking through the park.
Favorite activities here are fishing,
canoeing, kayaking, and camping.
Admission is $2-$5 and camping
is $26 plus tax per night.
There are many more parks
in the Venice area. To begin a
search, visit the city of Venice
Web site, www.venicegov.com
and click on parks and recreation;
the Sarasota County Web site,
www.scgov.com, and search
parks; or the state parks Web site,

Or, just strike out and dis-
cover these wonderful sites on
your own.

Enjoying the Legacy

BY KIM COOL
Features Editor

Walkers, cyclists and in-line skaters have been enjoying
the exercise and beauty along Legacy Trail, this area's
"rails-to-trails" park linking Venice and Sarasota.
With seven trailheads and two detours, the 10.6-mile
trail extends nearly to Clark Road in Sarasota from its
beginning just north of the historic Venice Train Depot.
Purchased for $11.75 million by Sarasota County in a part-
nership with the Trust for Public Land, the railroad right of
way once belonged to the CSX Railroad, which used the
rails for passenger and freight and, from 1960 to 1992, for
transporting the The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey
Circus to Venice. When the tracks were no longer strong
enough to carry both train cars and elephants the circus
left Venice and railroad service ended locally.
For more than a decade both the depot and the right
of way were empty and neglected. Finally, led by the late

Rollins Coakley and several
other volunteers, plans were
made to renovate the old
depot, which opened on Oct.
24, 2005, as a historic site,
SCAT bus depot and home of
the Venice Area Historical
Society. The latter has offices
in a restored red caboose on
the north end of the depot
property.
Token tracks remain next
to the depot as a reminder of
the depot's glory days, when
trains came often to Venice,
bringing the Ringling Bros.
and Barnum & Bailey Circus
for its annual winter hiatus and
rehearsal time, students to the
Kentucky Military Institute
and visitors to Venice.
Today, a ribbon of pave-
ment has replaced the tracks,
enabling skaters, bikers, jog-
gers and walkers to get out
and explore the great outdoors
and the scenic path from
Venice to Sarasota, with rest
stops along the way.
To the south the trail


extends along the Intracoastal
Waterway and south to
Caspersen Beach.
The trail
The trail is ADA compli-
ant. It has 15 rest stations with
shelters and drinking water at
1-mile intervals. Restrooms
are available in Potter Park, on
Stoneybrook Trail, due west of
the Legacy Trail near Central
Sarasota Parkway; at Oscar
Scherer State Park, which is
near the midpoint of the trail;
at Laurel Park, slightly more
than 2 miles north of Venice;
and at the Venice Train Depot.
Legacy Trail park trail-
heads, with parking, are in
Oscar Scherer State Park, at
Laurel Park, Nokomis Park,
Patriots Park in Venice and at
the Venice Train Depot.
Additional parking was
added at the Central County
Utilities site on McIntosh
Road.

Businesses serve Venice


BY ROGER BUTTON
Businews Columnist

The recession came, and
hopefully is going, without
too much more business tur-
moil. A few larger businesses
have fallen by the
wayside and
almost all manu- "Do
facturing compa-
nies have down-
sized or moved north. Some,
unfortunately, closed perma-
nently.
We are seeing signifi-
cant growth in the Rialto
Shopping Center, where
Goodwill Industries has cre-
ated one of the largest retail
stores in South County and, a
few yards away, the new, lat-
est-design Dollar General
store has opened.
Historic downtown
Venice island merchants have


braved the downturn by
adapting to serving year-
round residents and the large
influx of snowbirds coming
to enjoy the many amenities
offered throughout the area.
The "Ma and Pa" busi-


cuisine and varieties of popu-
lar American dishes.
Venturing around town in the
coming months you will see
a new Italian restaurant and a
South Beach Miami-style
restaurant with a new steak-


wntown, everything's waiting


ness model encourages new
ideas, products and services.
It is, and always has been,
the American dream to
launch a new business. Here
in Venice each week we wit-
ness entrepreneurs opening
stores with new products and
services.
Popular in Venice are
family-owned restaurants
offering varying menus fea-
turing Thai, Sicilian, Italian,
Greek, French and British


house and evening entertain-
ment center.
As singer Petula Clarke
sang, "Downtown, every-
thing's waiting." This theme
has been adopted for
Thursday evening strolls.
This year we have more
stores where you can buy all
kinds of knives, glitzy items
for pets, specialty cookies,
personalized photo placemats
and much more and soon,
Italian gelato.


And by the time tourist
season returns next year, a
Denny's restaurant will have
opened on the South Trail.
We have more pharmacies,
with both CVS and
Walgreen's planning for even
more.
Many downtown
y" merchants are staying
open till 8 p.m. every
Thursday to provide
additional shopping time for
working and visiting cus-
tomers.
Another perk for down-
town shoppers starts in
January with the free valet
parking available on West
Venice Avenue across from
T.J. Carney's.
Life is good in Venice,
Nokomis, Osprey and
Englewood and our business-
es are ready and willing to
serve your every need.

with many attributes that
draw visitors and new resi-
dents here annually.
First and foremost, this
is generally a very safe area.
The Venice Police

about 28,000 calls for service
that range from lost property
to stolen property to a traffic

coastal community and
tourist destination, the police
department's greatest con-

owners to keep valuables out
of sight and their vehicles
locked.
The department focuses
on community partnerships
as well. We collaborate with

Throughout the year, on
many a weekend there is likely
to be a parade or festival hap-

The giant Rotary Art
Festival kicks off the festival
year the third weekend in
January, followed a week later
by the Miami Avenue Craft
Festival. In February the
Italian Festival fills the Airport
Festival Grounds with a carni-
val atmosphere, Italian food
and plenty of entertainment.
March brings warmer
weather, the Downtown Venice
Art Classic and, at the Airport
Festival Grounds, the Scottish
Games, which offer caber toss-
ing, sword dancing, Celtic
crafts and plenty of people
sporting the colors of their


clans. Mid-month, the Sarasota
County Fair is held at the
county fairgrounds in nearby
Sarasota.
In April, people throng to
Venice for the annual Sharks
Tooth Festival at the airport's
festival grounds.
Fourth of July fireworks
make all of Venice and its sur-
roundings the center of
Independence Day celebra-
tions as the big show explodes
in the skies above the Venice

Held each September is
the annual Venice Jazz

AVEDA-


BY DANA SANCHEZ

ENGLEWOOD One
in five Americans are bird
watchers, earning the label
because they leave home on
birding trips or observe and
identify birds in their back-
yards, according to a new
report by the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service.
Those 48 million
Americans bought $36 bil-
lion worth of binoculars,
bird houses and bird seed
among other things, in pur-
suit of their hobby in 2006,
the most recent year for
which data is available.
And the level of interest
has been this strong at least
since 1996.
The report, "Birding in
the United States: A
Demographic and
Economic Analysis" identi-
fies birders, where they
live, how avid they are and
what kind of birds they
watch. It also estimates how
much they spend and the
economic impact of those
dollars.
The new report is an
addendum to the 2006
Survey of Fishing, Hunting
and Wildlife-Associated
Recreation, the 11th in a
series of surveys conducted
since 1955.
The wildlife service uses
the information as a refer-
ence for participation and
expenditure information on


fish and wildlife recreation
in the U.S.
"Birding is big business.
It's not a surprise, not to
us," said Gary Morse, a
spokesman for the Florida
Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
in Lakeland. "Bird watch-
ing is a widespread activity
that almost everyone enjoys
and you don't have to be a
master naturalist to enjoy
it."
Bird watching participa-
tion varies. The northern
half of the country is more
into it than the south. The
top five states with greatest
participation rates include
Montana (40 percent),
Maine (39 percent),
Vermont (38 percent),
Minnesota (33 percent) and
Iowa (33 percent).
Florida ranks below the
national average of 21 per-
cent with 17 percent of resi-
dents identified as bird
watchers.
Lisa Beever, program
director for the Charlotte
Harbor National Estuary
Program, was surprised to
hear about the report.
"That's a significant por-
tion of the U.S. popula-
tion," she said.
The Charlotte Harbor
area attracts bird watchers
from all over the world.
They come to see roseate
spoonbills, wood storks and

(ECONOMIC) NEST
























neo-tropical migrants such
as scarlet tanagers, Beever
said.
In Osprey, people visit
Oscar Scherer State Park
for scrub jays.
Registrations at area
wildlife refuges such as
Ding Darling on Sanibel
Island show significant
European tourism, accord-
ing to Beever.
"This is good news,"
Beever said. "It means the
efforts we've invested in
wildlife protection are being
enjoyed; that there's intrin-
sic value in natural preser-
vation but also economic
value."
Punta Gorda resident
Starr Zachritz is an avid
bird watcher and board
member of the Peace River
Audubon Society.
Bird watching is one of
the fastest growing hobbies
in the United States and it's
inexpensive, Zachritz said.
The hobby has given


enthusiasts other new hob-
bies including photography
- several bird watching
organizations have photo
clubs and there's the
added element of competi-
tion.
"Competitiveness is part
of bird watching," Zachritz
said. "You can keep track of
the species and it becomes a
competitive sport. When
you add in photography,
that's a sporting thing to do
too. You can compete on
getting photos."
Most people who get
into bird watching are
preservation and conserva-
tion-conscious, Zachritz
said. Birding strengthens
that.
The Great Florida
Birding Trail offers 24 sites
for bird watching in
Sarasota and Charlotte
counties. For a list, go to
myfwc.com/gfbt.

wedged in place. Willson said
one diver takes a saw with
him.
When diving at the jetty,
they also must watch the tides,
for a strong incoming tide
could carry the diver to Snake
Island and the outgoing tide
could take someone far out in
the Gulf of Mexico.
Clean-up divers enter the
water just as the tide is chang-
ing. That gives them about 45
minutes before rip tides form.
Jetty divers also must be care-
ful that they and their gear do
not become entangled in the
rocks.
A police officer stands by
for added protection and oth-
ers remain on land to help haul
up whatever the divers find.

How it began
The club was founded by
Willson, Fred Hind and Elaine
Brosnan in 1997. The goal was
to match up dive buddies and
promote local dives.


"There were eight or 10
of us at a chamber (Venice
Area Chamber of Commerce)
meeting and we decided to
take diving lessons," Willson
said.
Hind and Willson perse-
vered, had the club incorporat-
ed and lined up 16 original
members. Although Willson
grew up in the area, he never
went scuba diving until he
took lessons and started the
club when he was about 45.
He also had to conquer a type
of claustrophobia that caused
him to use more air than the
average diver.
Referred to as an "air-
sucking dog," he did 57 dives
his first year. To this day he
uses a larger, 100-pound tank,
which allows him to stay
down for about two hours. He
said an 80-pound tank is more
typical.

Collectors and 'lookers'
Now numbering close to





60, the club has members
ranging in age from 15 to 83.
They dive all over Florida,
hold regular meetings followed
by dinner and take an annual
trip to someplace special, such
as Bonaire, which is known
for its crystal-clear water and
the variety of things to see
there.
"We are not shooters,"
Willson said. "Our focus is
fossils and the promotion of
local diving."
Club members have
found prehistoric fossil sharks'
teeth as large as a person's
hand, plus countless fossilized
remains and mammoth teeth.
Venice could as easily be
called the Fossil Capital of the
World as it is the Shark Tooth
Capital of the World. Doug
Jones has several showcases of
his finds in his home. Willson
said they find the most sharks'
teeth out where the water is
about 17 feet deep but the
larger ones are in deeper water


where the bottom is also rocki-
er.

Special dives
Once, Willson was able
to dive at Epcot.
"They only do eight a
day and we had to arrange it
months in advance," he said.
Venice divers also were
allowed to dive at the Aquarius
Underwater Laboratory off the
Florida Keys. That, too, had to
be arranged months in
advance. They could not enter
the underwater lab, but even
being able to dive next to it
was a thrill.
"We had to do it when
they were not working on a
project," Willson said. "It is 60
feet down."
In addition to several
trips to Bonaire, group mem-
bers also have gone to the
Turks and Caicos and, more
often, to places in Florida such
as Jupiter and Boynton Beach.

Sea 'Tur tles

need all the help they can get


BY KIM COOL
Features Editor

On or about May 1 each
year, sea turtles return to
Venice beaches where they
were born some 20 or more
years ago.
Nesting females come
ashore to dig nests and fill
them with 100 or more ping-
pong-ball-sized eggs, which
will hatch 47-60 days later. In
the Venice area, where the
sand is darker and warmer
than on other beaches, turtles
are more likely to hatch within
47-50 days of nesting.
Ideally, both nesting
females and their hatchlings
will be guided only by the
light of the moon and stars
during their nocturnal crawls


to the water.
Since the arrival of
humans in coastal areas,
homes, condos, jetties, piers
and electric lights have trans-
formed beaches into alien ter-
ritory, increasing the odds
against their survival to the
point that just one of 1,000
hatchlings is likely to grow to
sexual maturity. If half are
females, the true odds are
closer to one in 2,000 hatch-
lings that will continue the
species.
Disoriented by artificial
light shining onto the beach,
turtles too often veer off
course and into harm's way on
the street or in a parking lot.
The farther away from the
water, the more chance they
have to become the prey of
wild animals.

Loggerheads
Guided by researchers
from Mote Marine Laboratory
and Aquarium and its many
sea turtle volunteers, and by
state and federal conservation
laws, Venice, with a marine
turtle lighting ordinance since
1995, is a proactive city in
regard to turtles.
On Venice beaches, most
of the turtles will be logger-
heads, which can weight as
much as 200 pounds and are
listed as threatened according
to the federal Endangered
Species Act. Green turtles, a
smaller species prevalent in
this area until over-harvested
for eggs and meat, are less
often seen.
Trained volunteers patrol
the beaches at sunrise seeking
evidence of egg laying and
hatching. They mark new
nests and inventory nests
vacated by hatchlings.
Nesting continues almost
until August. Hatchlings
emerge from mid-June
until to mid-October at
Venice. The same turtle
will nest about five


times during the season.
Mating takes place in the Gulf
during April, generally with
multiple partners.

You can help
If you live near the
beach, close draperies at night.
Shield outside lights or change
light bulbs to red, especially
red from light-emitting diodes.

sea turtles.
Stay off the beaches at
night. Do not use flashlights or
even a cigarette lighter, lest
you confuse a turtle. Do not
build bonfires at the beach.
If you see a nesting tur-
tle, stay away from and behind
it. Do not take flash pictures.
That can disorient and frighten
the turtle.
If you see someone tam-
pering with a nest or touching
a sea turtle, contact the nearest
law enforcement agency.

Since 1927, when stunt
pilot Lt. George Haldeman
flew in to Venice to deliver
strawberries to the old Hotel
Venice, the air space over the
city of Venice has been as
important as its waterfront
along the Gulf of Mexico and
its many waterways.
From 1943, when the
present Venice Municipal
Airport opened as the Venice
Army Air Base, until the early
1950s, when the old Albee
Airport closed, the city of
Venice had two airfields,
despite a population that
ranged from only about 700 to
more than 4,000 during the
war years.
That first flight landed in
a field west of the hotel, which
today is known as
Summerville of Venice. The
field was about where the east
parking area for Epiphany
Cathedral is located.
Albee's airfield was
established a few years later,
about where the Venice
Gondolier Sun and Venice
Elementary and High schools
are located. Albee's field was
important to his orthopedic
practice but also to the city,
which benefited from the
influx of patients and their
families to Albee's Florida
Medical Center on West
Venice Avenue.
Today's airport grew

from one of many flight train-
ing centers established in
Florida during World War II.
Most, like the Venice field,
remain as general aviation air-
ports today, providing training
for new pilots, facilities for
recreational fliers and, for the
city's safety in times of hurri-
canes and other catastrophes, a
place where medical supplies
and other help can be flown
in. Many pilots provide need-
ed medical help by flying
donated organs in or out of
Venice for life-saving surger-
ies.
A fly-in was held in
December 2008 as a celebra-
tion of the legacy of flight in
Venice. Said to be the first-
ever such event, the fly-in was
attended by an estimated
3,000 people who could look
at and even climb into a vari-
ety of small and experimental
aircraft.

Brenda Braden has cre-
ated a tropical paradise on
little more than one-quarter
acre in Nokomis.
That most of the plants
are edible is what sets her
yard apart from others in the
greater Venice-Nokomis area
where growing plants is an
easy exercise.
"It is only 100 by 129
feet," she said. "But every
ounce of it is edible. These
are foot-long African beans.
That is a rare form of ginger.
Both the leaves and the root
are edible."
Braden's old Florida-
style home with its heart-
pine floors and shabby chic
decor is attractive, but it is
the surrounding yard that is
even more impressive.
Partially shaded by a
giant oak in the back yard,
there is little grass to mow.
Instead there are fruits, veg-
etables and herbs to harvest
- in every season.
Several pineapple plants
joined Meier lemons, key
limes, figs and two yellow
watermelons that she had just
carried into the house.
Also ripe were those
African beans that, when


ripe, are at least 12 inches
long and nearly black in
color, which may be what
gives them their peppery
taste.
Nearby was a young
mango tree, a "black fig" and
a fleshy loquat, which has
loquats with more flesh than
stones.

'Gift of the gods'
Braden, a self-described
health nut, works out every
other day, eats healthy foods
and looks at least 15 years
younger than she is. Her
actual age does not matter as
much as her enthusiasm for
her plants and her gardening
lifestyle, which she pursues
in addition to a career in real
estate.
"This is a big hobby for
me, besides my workouts,"
she said.
It was her career that
led her to her house a block
from Shakett Creek, where
she has a 40-foot boat slip
she doesn't use. Instead, this
diminutive lady hefts a kayak
up onto the roof of her car
and takes off to places like
Snook Haven or Oscar
Scherer State Park for several
hours of paddling. She
prefers waterways that are
covered, partly for the shade
but mostly because of the
tropical environment she
loves so much.

Drum 1
BY BROOKY BROWN
Projects Manager

Stress and frustration some-
times make us feel like we want to
throw something or use a baseball
bat for something other than its
intended use.
Barbara Gail of The Rhythm
Inlet, 2301 North Tamiami Trail,
Nokomis, suggests beating a drum
instead.
"It's a primal thing for humans
to make rhythm." she said. "We live
our lives by rhythm, sometimes
chaotic and sometimes not."
Gail teaches drumming classes
for beginners, intermediate and Dru
advanced students. Her husband mi
and co-owner of The Rhythm Inlet,
Jeff Hanna, participates and does his
share of teaching in the classes as well.
He also tunes and repairs the drums.
"As contemporary people, we find
drumming a natural and easy thing to
learn," Gail said. "It's no wonder early
humans came together through rhythmic

drumming. The drum circle was the first
church and the first nightclub."
She believes there is a yearning to
return to the natural side of life, and peo-
ple are telling her there is a sense of


community in drumming they've never
felt before.
"I've witnessed the drum heal peo-
ple from feeling isolated because there is
a lot of nonverbal communication

through drumming," she said.
"It builds self esteem."
Gail said many people are
using drumming to work with
at-risk children because it
brings them into a mode of
cooperation.
Drumming also works on
the neurological system. Gail
said it helps children focus who
are suffering from autism or
attention deficit hyperactivity
disorder.
"It helps calm their ener-
gies and channel it and after-
wards they can be more calm
and focused," she said.
Physical therapist and
ergonomics consultant
Raymond Ferrier said drum-
ming is important for all of us,
especially as we age. Ferrier is
in one of Gail's classes.
"Drumming helps build
our neuropathways (in the
brain)," he said. "When you do
that you bur a lot of calories
and you're able to focus and
learn something new."
Jennifer Mainey, another


of Gail's students, agreed.
"You have to be in the here
and now when you're drum-
ming," Mainey said. "It's some-
thing you can do when you are
older."
Isabelle Dunkeson agreed
that drumming requires the
drummer to be mindful.
"You can't be thinking
about your to-do list," she said.
"Drumming is a form of medi-
tation and relaxation which pro-
vides stress reduction."
Gail said drumming and
the centering it causes can be a
key to making good decisions.
"A businessman had been
grappling with a very difficult
decision and couldn't come to
a conclusion," she said. "He had
discussed the situation with his
friends, colleagues and his wife
to no avail. On the way home
from a drum class, with his
mind cleared of all extraneous
chatter, the clarity of his own
inner wisdom came through and
he had the answer."

STRESS continued from pg 29

Teaching rhythm
Gail began teaching
drumming in 1994. She
worked with children and
conducted school programs.
"It was successful
because the children would
focus in a positive way," she
said. "Their teachers said they
wished we did drumming
every day."
One thing Gail likes to
stress is that music is not just
for musicians on a stage -
it's participatory.
"The drum can work
magic on everyday people
whether their challenges are


physical, mental, spiritual, or
perhaps they just need some
peace in their lives," she said.
Gail said she has been in
northeast Brazil twice where
there is much music and
dance every night in the
streets.
"You will see little girls
and grandmothers singing,
dancing and playing instru-
ments together," she said.
Gail thinks it would ben-
efit American women with
very full lifestyles to find
ways to replenish their own
wells.
"Women put everyone
else first," she said, "but we
must give to ourselves, also."

BY CRISTINA BABIAK, M.D.
Feature Writer

The change in our econ-
omy leaves most of us with
less money for luxuries like
eating out. This has inspired
many of us to try more home
cooking.
Both fast food and fine
dining are more expensive
than preparing fresh food at
home, so many of us are
learning to cook. One advan-
tage to this is that when we
cook at home we can be more
aware of the freshness and
purity of the ingredients in
our food.
Some restaurants serve
prepackaged, highly salted
foods that may have been
stored and frozen. It is a
delight to learn about new
spices that may enhance the
flavor of your foods without
the health risk of added salt.
Sodium directly weak-
ens the heart muscle and may
cause swelling and heartburn,
raise blood pressure and put
stress on kidney function.
Most flavor packets sold with
prepared foods and seasoned
meat at the grocery contain
mostly sodium salt.
Read food labels to
detect sodium added per serv-
ing on packaged and canned
foods. The recommended
daily amount is around 2,000


and flavor
milligrams per day, so a prod-
uct with several hundred mil-
ligrams per serving is a high-
salt food. Fresh and frozen
vegetables contain all the
sodium you need.
Healthier flavor
enhancers include juice and
zest of lemon and lime;
leaves of sage, bay leaf and
mints; hot peppers; ginger
root; garlic; basil; and onions.
Fresh herbs are alive and
bring energy, colors and
aroma to our food. If using
fresh herbs in a cold salad,
salsa or sauce, add them early
to allow time for the flavors
to mix. When simmering
soups or beans for a long
time, add the herbs about 20
minutes before serving so the
flavors do not cook away.
Dried herbs can be added
sooner to cooking foods to
allow the flavors to wake up.
Fresh, clean culinary
herbs can be purchased at the
Venice Farmers Market
Saturday mornings in the
Centennial Park parking lot
between Venice and Tampa
avenues. Economical organic
spices can be purchased in
bulk online at mountainrose-
herbs.com.
For information about
cooking with herbs and
spices, contact Babiak at 474-
6593 or chabik(< milul. u
