Runway paving top priority for new airport boss


Pavement inspections overdue as city continues
waiting for construction money to prevent safety
problems.


Real troupers
They're more than mere-

Venice Municipal Airport's
new manager and ad-isory
board wasted no time digging
into the most pressing issues.
No, it wasn't the possible
business park on 125 acres of
vacant airport property that's
stirred up so much resident
debate.
They wanted to know how
long before the airport's main
runway is repaved. Airport
Manager Fred Watts, on the
job for barely two weeks, said


he's trying to get the capital
improvement program "back
on track."

Neither runway is current-
ly a safety hazard, said Warts
in a follow-up interview.
though both need major re-
habilitation projects. The
main runway. 13/31, is listed
for funding, but the money
has not been awarded and the
design plans are three years
old.
Pavement at general avia-
tion airports like Venice's is
supposed to be inspected
every five years. In his brief
review of airport records,
Venice hasn't had an inspec-
tion since at least 1998, and
Watts called conditions "a

Some Venice City Council
members aren't ton thrilled
by the city's new program to
protect the public drinking
water supply.
"This is bureaucratic bum-
bling at its
worst," coun-
cil member
Rick Tacy said.
"The way it's
being execut-
ed is like it's a
government
program .
There's got to
be a more Tacy
user-friendly
way to implement this."
Council comments came
after several residents spoke
about a requirement that all
public water customers
install a backflow-prevention
device in their water lines and
pay for annual certifications.
These plumbing devices pre-
vent drinking water from
backing up in the lines during
a loss in pressure.'
Fears by federal and state
regulators are contaminants
from toilet bowl cleaners,
reclaimed water or even ter-
rorism might be sucked back
into the public's supply,
according to comments from
Rob Bolesta of the Sarasota
County Health Department.


EYE ON THE LEGISLATURE:

School board pushes for flexibility


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER


Flexibility is key to changes
the Sarasota County School
Board is seeking from Flor-
ida's Legislature during the
two-month-long session,
which began on Tuesday.
Top on the list is seeking
alignment of Florida's At Plan
with the state's plan to meet
requirements under die fed-
eral No Child Left Behind Act.
School board officials say the

A+ Plan has been effective in
aligning state policy with
classroom practice, and
shows high marks to prove it.
On die other hand, the
state's own plan to measure
Adequate Yearly Progress
under NCLB gives state
schools poor grades.
In 2004, A+ Plan statistics
showed 91 percent of Florida's
individual schools doing well
versus only 23 percent doing
well under the state's plan to
meet AYVP

Approximately one-diird
of Florida's schools are in
jeopardy of being required to
be reconstituted due to feder-
al AYP sanctions.
Fuzzy math
So serious is the lack of
alignment between the two
plans, say school officials,
that unless quickly recon-
ciled, the state's highly suc-
cessful A+ Plan may be dis-

Please see SCHOOL, 3A


Resident concerns are with
cost and location of these
devices, with the city saying
all 12,000 water customers
must have them..by- 2010.
Installation and purchase can
be as much as $500 or more,
according to some plumbers,
and annual testing can be as
much as $50.
As for location, the copper
pipe must be placed above
ground direcdy behind the
water meter. In most cases
that means the front yard.
"It honestly sounds to me
like the tail wagging the
puppy," resident Chad
Vaughn said. "In this case, it's
the utilities department wag-
ging die 12,000 customers.
"How much are we being
asked to uglilf our homes?
Don't shove this uglification
program on the property
owners."
City employees cannot
perform any of the work or
testing because any water
lines between the meter and
home are private property.
Consequendy, Florida court
cases brought by plumbers
have ruled tax dollars and
government workers cannot
be used, according to the city.
Council member Fred
Hammett said the require-
ment is not as bad as some
have made it. He was able to
install the device for less than
$300 and get it tested for $25.


The backflow requirement
has been
handed down
by the state
after it
changed the
law's wording,
forcing each
public water
system to de-
velop a pro-
gram. City. Hammett

Marty Black said the county
health department, which is
regulating local backflow pro-
grams, initially wanted the
conversion to be done within
a year.
The county
backed off
once it real-
ized that was
impossible. '
Black said. ,
Venice is still
developing a
database to
determine
which of its Black
12,000 cus-
tomers already have backflow
devices, let alone whether
they meet current standards.
Right now there are only
twvo city employees handling
the backflow program.
"Quite frankly, it's over-
whelming our ability to
respond (to utility service
calls)," Black said.

already projecting higher in-
mate admissions to the
Sarasota County jail'than last
year.
David Bennett, a jail con-
sultant from Utah hired by
the county to study its jail
and the criminal justice sys-
tem, provided the county's


Criminal Justice Commis-
sion with the latest data
about the jail during a
meeting Thursday.
Using data about the num-
ber of inmates admitted to
the jail in January and Feb-
ruary, Bennett is predicting
total admissions of 18.774
inmates in 2005, an increase
from the 17,696 inmates
admitted in 2004.

Teaching acceptance through drama and laughter

Sarasota actors with mental and physical _________________
disabilities perform for students
at the European Academy in Nokomis. ;k. '- "


BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


William Shakespeare's mo-
tivation may not have been
to teach acceptance of peo-
ple with mental and phys-
ical disabilities when he
wrote "Romeo and Juliet"
more than 400 years ago.
His classic play has done
just that, as an acting group
out of Sarasota showed to
Nokomis students at Euro-
pean Academy on Thursday.
Kaleidoscope Theatre
Company performed "A
World of Differences" for
preschool through first-grade
students. The original play
and music, created by the
Kaleidoscope staff, loosely
follows the Shakespeare story


and is performed by actors
with various forms of mental
and physical disabilities.
European Academy music
instructor Pam Henley read
'about Kaleidoscope in a
Sarasota newspaper and in-
vited the members to per-
form for the private school's
70 students.
"Everyone has personal
challenges in life," said Hen-
ley, who has a son with dis-
abilities. "Sometimes we see
the disability and not the
person. I like to see the per-
son first and look beyond
the disability."
The young students
seemed to enjoy the nearly
half-hour play, laughing at
the jokes and following the
music and dancing.


Actors with the Kaleidoscope Theatre Company perform their play to students at European Academy in Nokomis on Thursday.
Except for three staff members in the play, each of the dozen actors have some type of mental, physical or emotional disability.


Kaleidoscope coordinator Megwyn Sanders, left, signs
the words to a song performed by Suzie Goetz during the play,
"A World of Differences."


Creative outlet
After the play, director TJ
Geist answered questions
from the students and talked
about the importance of ac-
cepting different people.
One of the youngsters
asked the actors what their
favorite part is.
"I like making people
laugh," actress Suzie Goetz
said.
A major goal of Kaleido-
scope is to show people in
the community the talent a
person with disabilities has
and to remember that, not
just the disability.
Performances also benefit
the dozen actors, Geist said.
All of them are clients at
Children's Haven and Adult
Community Services, which
offers medical, education,
adult care and employment
services for those with dis-
abilities.
"It's to create an outlet for
their imaginations, to live it,"
Geist said. "A lot of their other
services do not give them an
outlet for that."

Partners
Kaleidoscope is a partner-
ship between Children's Hav-
en and The Asolo Theatre
Co. Major funding comes
from private donations,
grants and Medicaid waivers,
said Megwyn Sanders, Ka-
leidoscope coordinator who
also teaches dance to the
actors.
Created in 1994, the the-
ater program was given the
1999 Best Practice Model
award by the Sarasota County
Arts Council. Actors have dis-
abilities that include Down
syndrome, cerebral palsy and
various other mental, physi-
cal or emotional disabilities.
Community performances
continue through May.
Kaleidoscope has had book-
ings for schools, community
groups and assisted-living
facilities. Call 355-8808 for

mately dismantled.
Alignment of A+ Plan with
NCLB is a top priority for the
Sarasota County School
Board, said board member
Laura' Ben-
son, who also
serves as its .
legislative liai-
son.
The dis-
parity among
states when it i
comes to re-
porting how
well they meet Benson
NCLB require-
ments is'an issue, said Benson.
Each state is responsible
for coming up with its own
federal plan to meet perfor-
mance standards. Some
states appear to be doing bet-
ter than others.
Benson points to a report
by the National School Boards
Association showing only 4.1
percent of Florida districts
made AYP in 2003, while
California showed 42.8 per-
cent and Texas showed 81.8
percent.
It doesn't add up, accord-
ing to Benson.
Benson said the board sup-
ports a plan pushed by other
school boards and education
associations to amend the
way Florida calculates AYP.
The populations on which
meeting AYP is based include
the total population at the
school and within each of the
following subgroups: ra-
cial/ethnic, low income, spe-
cial education and limited
English proficient students.
Below-level performance by
any one of the subgroups in
reading or math identifies a
school as "in need of im-
provement." There must be at
least 30 students in each
school subgroupto be statisti-
cally reliable.
The school board supports
increasing AYP subgroup
sizes from 30 to 50 students,
in effect reducing the number
of subgroups that may be
used to grade a school.
"By increasing the number
of kids required for a measur-
able subgroup, less would
fail," said Benson.
In addition, the board
would also like to exclude
FCAT scores for first-year stu-
dents whose primary lan-
guage is other than English.
Those results also bring down
school scores artificially, say
educators.
Step backwards
The Florida Department of
Education is sticking to its
guns and moving very slowly
to make
changes to the
state's plan to
meet NCLB ..
requirements.
Department. .
officials don't
see a need to -.
make the kind
of changes the
Sarasota Winn
County School
Board is seeking.
"We have met with several
superintendents and school
boards and have heard their
concerns regarding NCLB,"
said John L. Winn, Florida
Commissioner of Education.
"However, rather than lower
standards as they propose, we
are working with the U.S.
Department of Education to
more closely align our pro-
grams. I remain optimistic





a 00 '


that we can make adjust-
ments that will better align
our accountability systems.
"We know that every child
has the ability to learn. High
standards and accountability
for all students continues to
drive student achievement in
our state. No Child Left Be-
hind ensures that every stu-
dent gets the instruction they
need and deserve to be suc-
cessful."
Benson is the first to admit
complacency in the education-
al establishment over past
decades planted the seeds of
NCLB. She supports the presi-
dent's education initiative.
"It has forced substantive
and positive changes in edu-
cation," said Benson, "but the
process has been difficult.
"Having so many schools
succeed on A+ Plan when
nearly all of them fail NCLB is
ludicrous. It doesn't begin to
reflect the amazing growth of
student performance as
shown by other measure-
ments. It's purely a function
of the performance standards
of NCLB as established by the
state of Florida that make this
so. We are asking the commis-
sioner of education to amend
our federal plan."
Benson said federal sanc-
tions for schools that fail to
meet AYP divert education
dollars away from where they
are needed most.
"Financial sanctions are
guaranteed to kick in with
small subgroups. Is that an ac-
curate measurement of school
performance?" said Benson.
Purse strings
The school board also
wants flexibility in how it rais-
es local funds for education.
One such proposal is embod-
ied in SB 6,06 by Dennis Jones,
.R.-Pinellas. The bill,, which
passed a key, Senate educa-
tion committee on Monday,
faces a rougher road in the
House, where it was assigned
to five committees by Speaker
Allen Bense.
The bill allows school
boards to seek public ap-
proval of school tax referen-
dums that could last up to 10
years instead of four. It comes
as the school board is consid-
ering whether to place anoth-
er referendum before voters
in 2006, when the 2002 refer-
endum implementing a one-
mill levy expires. Sarasota was
the first county to seek addi-
tional millage to pay for
school operating expenses.
, Rep. Nancy Detert, R.-Ven-
ice, is also working on legisla-

tion that would allow for
lengthier referendums, at the
request of the Sarasota Coun-
ty School
Board.
"If the bill
passes, the
school board
would decide
how the ballot i -
language
would read,"
Detert said.
"The board Detert
would decide
if the referendum should be
for four years, five years, or
anywhere up to 10 years. The
board would also decide if
they will continue the tax to
be the current one mill, or
would reduce the tax to a half
mill, or three-quarters of a
mill. Then the people will
vote.
"If voters think the schools
are well funded they should
vote No. If they think schools
are underfunded, they should
vote Yes. The bill I am spon-
soring simply gives the school
system more flexibility, with
voters as the final checks and
balances," Detert said.
The 2002 school tax refer-
endum was successfully dri-
ven by a grassroots, Sarasota-
based organization, Citizens
for Better Schools.
"We are waiting for that
type of grassroots support
again," said Benson. "We
aren't going to go out there
and say, 'Give this to us.' We
want the community to tell
us, 'We want to continue this.'
CBS is in the process of get-
ting feedback on a possible
2006 referendum. We're wait-
ing for that feedback.
"We're also waiting to see
the superintendent's proposed
five-year plan for the district,
and its fiscal ramifications. I
think we need that kind of
information before taking any
formal action. We plan to talk
about it at an upcoming meet-
ing," Benson said.
Class size
More difficult will be the
school board's effort to seek
flexibility in the class-size
reduction amendment pass-
ed in 2002. Gov. Bush is lead-
ing the effort to amend the
constitution to allow the use
of district-wide average class,
size limits, instead of a limit
on each classroom. To sweet-
en the pot, the minimum
beginning teacher pay would,
be raised from $31,000 to
$35,000, but only if the class-
size amendment is passed.

NATURAL CROWDING
Even after orthodontic treatment has resulted in excellent tooth
alignment,;there is the possibility of slight relapse due to the continued
bone growth. This may cause the front teeth to crunch together to
relieve the strain. There is a natural tendency for teeth to move forward,
to remain in contact with the tooth in front. At the midline, forces on
one side are countered and neutralized by the opposite forces..This is
called the "anterior component of force".
The teeth are not set absolutely vertically in the bone but are tilted
toward the front of the jaw. As the teeth come together in chewing and
swallowing, forces are applied in a forward moving direction. This
action is usually sufficient to keep the teeth in contact with each other,
preventing separation and food impaction. If there is disharmony or
imbalance in these structures and forces, and if space is not sufficient,
the incisors tend to crowd and overlap. The movement is self-limiting
and harmless except for esthetic considerations.

Evelyn Lynn, R.-Ormond
Beach, and Rep. John Stargel,
R.-Lakeland, implementation'
of the class-size amendment
would be moved up to 2007,
rather than 2010.
To build or not
The school board would
also like the legislature to
bring pressure on the De-
partment of Education to
bring facilities regulations in
line with class-size limits.,
"Districts are asking for
flexibility in the way they
choose buildings that make
sense programatically," Ben-
son said. "There has been no
correlation between the
number of student stations
and program needs by DOE,"
she said.
The problem with current
department regulations is
they are out of date, says
Benson.
"Square footage limits per
student were in place before
the class-size reduction
amendment passed. Due to
the amendment, a school
that could fit 1,000 students
can now only fit 800. Yet the
department hasn't effectively
recognized that change.
"Today, a class that used to
house 28 students is only
allowed 25 kids because of
class limits. Yet, the depart-
ment counts the class as hav-
ing three available stations.
DOE will not let you build
new schools if there is space
available in existing schools."
It interferes with school
construction efforts, says
Benson. North Port is the
exception because it is set
apart geographically from
other areas.
i "But you have schools up
here in Sarasota and else-
where that need to be built.
Right now the department
insists we can handle, the
problem by redistricting the
whole county," Benson said,.
"It is part of the reason we
have one out of every four
students in a portable class-
room. We are adding relocata-
bles, retrofitting, redesigning
and otherwise trying to find a
balance, between building
new schools and meeting
class-size limits, which may
change in the future.
"We are receiving little
guidance," Benson said. "We
also want the legislature to
understand the problem be-
fore they start placing new
demands on us." ,

AIRPORT from page 1A
VASI and sunshine
Six of seven airport board
members are new since city
council reorganized the
board a month ago, with for-.
mer chair Susan Balsinger the
only holdover.
City Clerk Lori Stelzer
reviewed public records and
Sunshine Laws, which coh-

are active members of the
Venice Aviation Society Inc.,
also called VASI. They wanted
to make sure their VASI group
functions do not violate state
laws preventing government
board members from dis-
cussing agenda items outside
of a meeting.
"We have discussed a lot of,
issues as it relates to the air-
port at VASI,
but we did
not know it .
was coming
up at the advi-
sory board,"
said Joe Rand,
who was se-
lected as vice
chair of the
airport board Rand
and also is the
president of VASI.
City Attorney Bob Ander-
son advised them that if all
else fails, error on the side of
cafition.
Members of the same board
can be in the same room and
talk with each other. They just
can't talk about anything that is
coming before the airport
board.
Paul Hollowell was select-
ed as chair of the airport
board, and he
is the treasur-
er of VASI. Dr.
John. Yurosko
and Roger
Jernigan both
are active
VASI mem-
bers, while '
Ralph Conner Hollowell
is a former


pilot.
Balsinger and Jim Leis are
the only members without
direct aviation experience.
Wildlife habitat
A motion was made and
then withdrawn by Rand to
declare the airport not a suit-
able location
for creating
wildlife habi-
tats. While
many on the
board seem-
ed to. agree,
councilmem-
ber John Sim-
monds, the ex
officio, warn- Simmonds
ed them pass-
ing such a motion may be
"kicking a lid off Pandora's
box."
Members were responding
to a Venice Area Audubon
Society letter asking city
council to support creating a
habitat for the endangered
Florida scrub jay on the
vacant 125 acres, which may
be developed at some point
in the future.
The loss of potential air-
port revenue didn't enter
their conversation. Creating
wildlife habitats at an air-
port increases the. risk of
accidents where birds strike
airplanes.
Several members disputed
the VAAS statement that the
Federal Aviation Adminis-
tration does not consider
"scrub jays a threat to aviation
because they only fly 10 to 15
feet off the ground," accord-
ing to the VAAS memo.
That actually creates more
danger during takeoffs and
landings, the most critical times
during any airplane flight
"As far as encouraging new
habitats, it's going to be hard
to get the FAA to buy out on
that," Watts said.

Casey Key Tiki Hut dispute headed to court


Jimmy Von Hubertz has sued the county to get a
permit to reopen the facility at the Casey Key Fish
House because the county says all that's allowed
is a storage building.


BYGERALDA. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT

The 12th Judicial Circuit
Court is Jimmy Von Hubertz'
next battleground in his effort
to expand his business by
reopening the Tiki Hut at the
Casey Key Fish House in
Osprey.
His attorney filed suit
against Sarasota County on
Tuesday seeking a permit
again. He hopes that the case
will be before a judge within
30 days.
Von Hubertz's action fol-
lowed Monday evening's 3-3
vote by the county Zoning
Board of Appeals, which ef-
fectively defeated his appeal
of a Jan. 13 ruling by the


board. At issue was whether a
1970 Special Act of the state,
which created the North
Casey Key Conservation Dis-
trict, supersedes commercial
marine zoning for the restau-
rant. That was part of a com-
prehensive zoning ordinance
of the county established in
the 1980s.
A strict interpretation of
the 1970 Act by zoning board
chair Douglas Fraley appear-
ed to defeat Von Hubertz's
argument. Insisting that the
act's prohibited commercial
structures within the district
- termed a "strained inter-
pretation of the act" by Rich-
ard Smith, Von Hubertz's at-
torney he persuaded two
board members to join him in


opposing the appeal. A tie
vote is considered a denial of
an appeal.
Nonconforming
Throughout the lengthy
hearing before a capacity
audience at the County Gov-
ernment Center in Sarasota,
applause for several support-
ers of Von Hubertz who testi-
fied was so frequent that
Fraley asked for restraint.
The principal argument of
supporters of the Fish House
was, in the words of Robert K.
Volk Jr., of Osprey, that "clos-
ing down this business would
remove one of the few
remaining instances of old
Florida charm. All too often in
recent months, waterfront
restaurants and marinas are
vanishing, to be replaced by
condominiums."
Zoning Administrator
Mary Beth Humphrey reveal-
ed that the Tiki Hut had been
a storage building, and that


existing permits allowed only
that use. In the form it took
before being shut down by
the county, involving music
and activities outside the
restaurant building, it violat-
ed the district's zoning. The
restaurant, a separate build-
ing that has operated as a bait
shop among other uses since
1951, was exempted from the
prohibition because it pre-
ceded the 1970 Act.
An early morning fire
caused by lightning in Feb-
ruary 2004 at the Fish House
initiated the current toning
dispute.
Operating under a tempo-
rary permit issued by Hum-
phrey, Von Hubertz had his
business up and running 10
days after the restaurant was
severely damaged. He used
the Tiki Hut and a portable
kitchen in his parking space
to provide about 75 percent of
his regular menu. A hastily
erected tent covered as many


as 40 diners..
As a nonconforming build-
ing, the restaurant qualified
for the "50 percent rule," al-
lowing Von Hubertz to restore
the building to its original
appearance. He said that res-
toration of the structure cost
about $200,000. Another
$75,000 was required to re-
place contents destroyed in
the fire.
Heightened scrutiny
But when it came time for
permits to reopen the restau-
rant as a complete -operation,
the zoning board discovered
that the Tiki Hut was still
approved only as a storage
building. In addition, residents
of CaseyKey and the South Bay
subdivision in Osprey had
begun to complain about loud
music at night at the Tiki Hut.,
This heightened the zoning
board's scrutiny of operating
permits.
Von Hubertz is expected to


argue before the circuit court
that commercial marine zon-
ing under county rules is
more protective of the envi-
ronment than the 1970 Act.
That has as its objective "the
preservation of the natural
beauty, marine, animal and
bird life" of the North Casey
Key Conservation District.
"The support of the com-
munity hasbeen enormous,"
said Von Hubertz. "So many
turned out at the hearing to
let the zoning board know
that Osprey doesn't want to
lose another waterfront rest-
aurant.
"It may well be that the
court will have a. better un-
derstanding of how we're
meeting tough zoning re-
quirements than the zoning
board did. That's my hope."
In the six and a half
months that the Tiki Hut has
been closed, Von Hubertz
estimated, his business has
declined by about 25 percent.

Fire 'watch' continues at



Waterfront condominiums


Graser


honored


Because of malfunctioning sensors
in the sprinkler system, somebody
is on alert 24 hours a day in case of fire.


BY JJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

One of the newest and
most visible additions to the
city's skyline is under a fire
watch.
The Waterfront on Venice
Island isn't at risk of going up
in flames, according to Fire
Marshal Jack Stevenson, and
the designation is a standard
one.
Stevenson. found out two
weeks ago the nine-story
building's automatic sprinkler
system has a short, meaning
it must be turned on manual-
ly. That's a violation of fire
codes, so until the problem
is fixed, Waterford must pay
someone 24 hours a day just
to watch for fires or else get
the building evacuated.


"Since it's a life-safety is-
sue, we could order the evac-
uation of the building,"
Stevenson said. "If we felt like
they weren't keeping up their
end of the bargain, the fire
chief or the designee could
do that. ... But (fire watches)
are not an uncommon occur-
rence. It actually happens,
pretty regularly."
There is only one other
active fire watch in Venice.
Bird Bay Shopping Plaza has
been under one for a couple
of weeks while repairs to a
broken fire hydrant on private
property are made, Johnson
said.
As for the actual sprinkler
system at the Waterfront con-
dominium, Johnson said it
works fine. His only issue is
the automatic alarm is not


working 100 percent of the
time.
"It didn't work perfectly
every time, and it has to, so it
did not satisfy me," Johnson
said of his follow-up 'inspec-
tion last Friday.
Electricians are working to
find out what is causing the
short circuit, said Mike Miller,
president of Waterford and
owner of the condominiums.
A second tower is under con-
struction and a third is
planned with accompanying
retail shops in the major re-
development on Venice
island.
"It's the first time this elec-
trician has encountered this
type of problem," Miller said.
"We will keep working on it
until the short circuit is fixed.
... Until they get it fixed, we'll
keep two people working on
the fire watch."

Retum of Villa Lago
A proposed 151-unit devel-
opment off Pinebrook Road,
just north of Edmondson
Road, returns for public re-
view three months after city
council refused to vote and
sent it back to staff.
City council and Venice
Planning Commission mem-
bers will have a joint meeting
at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday to
discuss Villa Lago and re-
design alternatives. Council
refused to vote last December
after the planning commis-
sion .denied approval by a
6-1 vote.
More than 30 residents


of neighboring Sorrento
Ranches attended that coun-
cil meeting, wanting to speak
in opposition, but, were de-
nied the, opportunity when
members decided not to vote.
The original design called
for Villa Lago to have 151 liv-
ing units similar to triplexes,
on 46 acres of property.
Challengers questioned the
development's impact on
natural wetlands and wildlife
habitats and said it is out of
character with the area.
Sorrento Ranches borders
city limits and remains zoned
as only one home for every
5 acres.


Bypass priority
Every year Venice City
Council selects its highest leg-
islative priority. This year
members have set their sights
on funding for U.S. 41 Bypass
expansion from four to six
lanes. '
This means all state lobby-
ing efforts and funding that
accompanies it will focus
on persuading legislators to
dish out the needed money.
"Since 1979, the need to
widen the U.S. 41 Bypass has
been a top priority for Ven-
ice. ... The city would like
your help in securing the
necessary financial commit-


ment to make the U.S. 41
Bypass improvements a re-
ality," wrote Mayor Dean
Calamaras in his letter to
state lawmakers.
Florida Department of
Transportation conducted a
road-widening design plan in
1993, but that report remain-
ed dormant for a dozen years
and little to no right-of-way
purchases were made. FDOT
has only recently started to
.revise that design plan, at-
tempting to avoid major costs
in buying right-of-way land.
Work to expand U.S. 41 to
six lanes north from Bird Bay
Drive for 2.5 miles to State


Road 681 is predicted to start
this September, said Chuck
Wood, project manager for
the U.S. 41 expansion, during
a January interview. This ex-
pansion project is expected
to last two years.
As for the bypass, the area
south of Bird Bay Drive to
Center Road is undergoing
three years of redesign, and
there is no predicted con-
struction date. State money
has not been budgeted for
needed land purchases, let
alone construction.

" "^ ,' Firefighters stop natural gas leak


STAFF REPORT


Venice firemedics were
called to the scene of a natur-
al gas leak at the corner of
Turin Street and Nokomis
Avenue around noon Thurs-
day.
The leak was the result of a
city contractor hitting a 4-
inch gas main and a stormwa-
ter pipe while working on the
street light project, according
to a city press release.


TECO Gas Company re-
sponded after the fire depart-
ment pinched the gas pipe
and vented stormwater
drains where gas accumulat-
ed.
TECO capped the line and
will replace it by directional
bore next week.
Due to the location where
the gas line was hit, no cus-
tomers were without natural
gas service. No one was
injured.


Venice firefighters move from the scene of a gas leak Thursday. VFD later pinched a 4-inch gas main and vented stormwater
drains where the gas had accumulated.

JAIL from page 1 A


"That's much higher than
it's ever been," Bennett said.
"Something's going on. We
just don't know what it is."
But while admissions may
be on the rise, the number of
days a person spends in the
jail and the average daily pop-
ulation are on the decline.
Bennett told the group that
in January and February, an
inmate spent an average of
13.5 days in jail as compared
to 15.6 days in 2004. On aver-
age, the daily jail population
is hovering around 700 in-
mates, Bennett said.
The jail had an average
daily population of 696 based
on the first two months of the
year, compared to 756 in 2004
and 819 in 2003.
Overburdened?
Sheriff Bill Balkwill said
that as of Thursday morning,
704 inmates were housed in
the jail. Balkwill attributed
part of the rising admissions
to the number of arrests com-
ing from South County, which
he said was an effect of the
growth in North Port.
Balkwill said three van
trips a day were currently
being made from South
County, bringing prisoners
from the Venice jail to the
county jail in downtown
Sarasota.
Adding that the Venice jail
is taking in 4,500 inmates
annually, Maj. Kevin Gooding
said additional problems lay
ahead with North Port's pop-
ulation projections of 100,000
people by 2010.
"We really need to look at
the need for a new jail in
South County," Gooding said.
"Our county is growing at the
two opposite ends. At what
point do we become overbur-
dened by van runs?"
"We can probably justify a
jail in South County right
now," added 12th Circuit
Chief Judge Robert Bennett,
who chairs the commission.
"South County no longer
ends at Basketville. The dis-
cussion about South County
needs to start now."
Act of faith
While the increasing num-
ber of admissions was a dis-
turbing trend, Bennett said
the hiring of more pretrial
officers by the county last
year, and his assumption of
first appearance hearings was,
making a difference.
The idea behind those two
approaches is to get people
out of jail faster and under the
supervision of the pretrial ser-
vices staff pending disposi-
tion of their cases.
Bennett's initial study
found that people arrested in


Sarasota County were staying
in jail longer than necessary
because the county lacked
staff to provide adequate pre-
trial services and provide
judges with information nec-
essary to make decisions
about pretrial releases.
"The commissioners did
this as an act of faith," he said.
"The program is working."
But more needs to be
done.
Dennis Liebert, another
consultant from Boulder,
Colo., hired by the county, has
been studying the physical
layout of the jail and pro-
posed a plan to consolidate
present booking area, which
occurs on two floors now, into
one first-floor operation.
Booking a prisoner now,
occupies an enormous
amount of the arresting offi-
cer's time, Liebert said, as he
must remain with the prison-

er until processing is com-
pleted. Reconfiguring the lay-
out of .the booking area will
help get the arresting officer
back on the street sooner.
Liebert estimated the cost
of the renovation at $4.3 mil-
lion, and the commission is
hoping to get the project
included in the 2006 fiscal
year budget now under
preparation by county staff.
Beyond intervention
The commission also
heard a presentation about
plans by local social service
providers to create a secure
Marchman Act Receiving
Facility, where those with
substance abuse problems
could be taken instead of the
county jail, where they area
currently housed.
First Step already has a 15-
bed detoxification facility and
"it's almost always full," said a
representative of the agency.
Expanding that to 45 beds
would reduce the number of
people going to jail and allow
social service workers to
move beyond acute interven-
tion and into dealing with the
abuse problem.
Chip Taylor, the county's
human resources manager,
estimated it would cost $1
million to do the. expansion.
"This is a major step for the
service agencies in this town,"
said Public Defender Elliott
Metcalfe, "to come together
and put forth this proposal."
The commission is expect-
ed to take action on Liebert's
proposal and the Marchman
Act facility at its meeting in
April.

Girls tennis unbeaten after 5 matches


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The Venice High girls
tennis team received its
toughest test of the'season
Thursday at the Pine View
School, as Bayshore proved
to be a worthy opponent
even though its lineup was
injury depleted.


The Lady Indians pre-
vailed 4-3 to keep their sea-
son unbeaten at 5-0.
Venice won three of the
five singles matches and one
of the two doubles to pull
out the win.
Two Venice singles players
lost their first matches of
the season. Super freshman
Rachel Rossi lost 6-2, 6-1 to


Laime Contreras at No. 1,
while Elisabeth Diamond fell
6-1, 6-1 to Nina Alimpic at
No. 2. Contreras and Alimpic,
who train at Bolleteiri, were
responsible for Bayshore's
other point at No. 1 doubles.
Venice saw singles players
from No. 3 through No. 5 all
win.
At No. 3, Pine View student


Ashley Grozier won 6-3, 6-0
over Kelly Officer. At No. 4,
junior Marta Kowalik took a
6-0, 6-2 match from Katarina
de Naguira.: At No. 5, junior
Ashley Lane defeated Irene
Garcia.
Grozier, Kowalik and Lane
are still undefeated.
The decisive doubles win
came at No. 2 where Grozier

and Lane teamed up to de-.
feat Officer and de Naguira,
6-0, 6-1.
Venice's captains this
season are Diamond, Jenna'
Ferretti and Daniela Agu-
delo. Coach Barb Ginn is
carrying 16 girls on the team
this season.
"We have more depth
than ever before," Ginn said.
"We're strong at the top of
the ladder."
Venice is scheduled to
host the Class 3A District 11
Tournament April 18-19. The
only problem, the eight new
on-campus courts are only
half done.
"They're supposed to be
ready March 16, but they
still have to put on the sur-
face and let it cure;" Ginn
said.
The nets have to go up
and the lines need, to be
painted.
The district encompasses
Venice, Manatee, Southeast,
Port Charlotte, Charlotte and
'Bayshore.
Ginn expects Charlotte to
be very tough. And the April
11 rematch at Bayshore
should be interesting.
Bayshore coach Jeannie
Galindo expects her No. 3
player to return from injury.
Her No. 4 is also out with an
ACL tear. Her No. 1 player
graduated in December and
is currently unbeaten play-
ing college tennis at
Southern Mississippi.

selection as a libero.
Her outstanding defen-
sive skills were a big part of
the Lady Indians'. 28-3
record..
Whitescarver didn't get
any All-State mention, but
the outside hitter was a
well-rounded player who
.definitely added to the state
finals charge.
"A lot of players specialize

kids have the whole package,"
said Venice coach Brian
Wheatley, who has sent 24
players on to college since
he came to town in 1993.

Hernando and have -the
opportunity to move on and
continue playing at a four-
year school;"
Both Davidson and White-
scarver will be getting free

for, but cable TV and tele-

Davidson was courted by
other schools like Sante Fe
Community College, the
University of Tarhpa and
Florida Gulf Coast University,
for her softball skills.
She is an awesome catch-
er for the Lady Indians,
going by nicknames of
"Mer" or "Hustling Harry."
Davidson wants to study
elementary education.
Whitescarver wants to be a
pharmacist.

It has been a disappointing
year for the Venice Vikings
semi-pro football team, but
the local gridders can gain a
measure of consolation with
a strong showing in the final
home game of the season
against the Polk War Eagles.
Game time is 7:05 p.m.
Saturday at Powell-Davis Sta-
dium.
The Vikings and War Eagles
have a few things in common.
Both are winless and are in last
place in their divisions.'
Which makes the game a
matter of pride to Viking head
coach Skip Poole.
"We need to step up and
see what we're made of," Poole
said. "We've played some
teams tough but had some
things go against us at the
end. We've played two over-
time games.",
The Vikings are coming off
a 47-0 loss to the St. Peters-
burg Sharks. The Sharks are
three-time Southern States

Football League champs.
They lead the AFC West with
a record of 6-1.
Both the Vikings and War
Eagles are 0-7. The Vikings
are at the bottom of the AFC
West and the War Eagles
beneath the AFC East.
The SSFL's prognosticator,
Gridiron Abbey, has the
Vikings a three-point favorite.
She has been right on most
of her predictions this sea-
son with an overall SSFL
record of 43-12.
The two teams met last
year with the Vikings winning
29-7.
"We're prepared for them
on both sides of the ball,"


Some people have a special
talent taking to something
new.
When it comes to sprint car
racing, Stephen Darvalics falls
into the category of being a
natural.
The 18-year-old out of
Venice was competitive the
first time he crawled into a
1,300-pound winged beast
powered by an engine turning
650 horsepower.
And with his first full
United Sprint Car Series
ahead of him, Darvalics is
ready to take his potential to
the limit.
Darvalics first drove a
sprint car last year. He ran in
six USGS events and the regu-
lar Saturday night shows on
the East Bay dirt.
Darvalics finished a most
respectable fourth in points at
East Bay and was the sprint
division's rookie of the year.
S: "I did test and nine before I
raced and I went out my first
race up to full throttle," he
said.
Darvalics won several heat
races and placed as high as
second in features. His father
Steve selected six USCS shows
to race in. He had three top 10
finishes and a top five.
"He was racing against guys
with a lot more experience,"
his father said.
This year, the Darvalics are
ready to race USCS week-in,
week-out.
The O'Reilly USCS tour,
which is run by former sprint
star Pete Walton and ex-
NASCAR favorite Ernie Irvan,


Poole said. "It's time the tide
changes. We need a win to
start us on a positive roll."
Saturday night's game will
be High School Night. All
students will be admitted for
$2. Adults are $5.
There will be free food
before the game for tailgating
fans beginning at 6 p.m.
sponsored by Denny's
Restaurant. Food items
include chicken sandwiches,
burgers and hot dogs.
Players will be available to
sign autographs at 6:30 p.m.
The first 100 fans will re-
ceive free Vikings T-shirts.

The track sizes range from
a quarter mile up to 5/8ths.
"I like the bigger ones,"
Darvalics said. "I get up to
around 155 miles per hour.
The smaller tracks are harder
to drive."
Darvalics also likes driving
on dirt.
"I've never tried asphalt
yet," he said. "I love racing on
dirt. Asphalt is where the
money is. They pay about
$3,000 to win on asphalt and
$2,000 on dirt."


Darvalics will drive the red
No. 32 sprint sponsored by
CineMoves, Gauthier
Fabrication, Sign Masters and
Day's Inn of Venice. There is
approximately $50,000 in the
car. The chassis came from
Shaw Chassis. The engines
,come--from Gaerte :out,'of
Indiatia. The motor is a'small
block Chevrolet, 360 ubic
inches wvidi aluminum heads.
Darvalics, a 2004 Venice
High grad, got his start in rac-
ing with dirt go-karts. Casey
Johnson and Gale Harmen
gave Stephen his start in
sprints.
"I worked on cars two
years before driving," he said.
Darvalics is an accom-
plished welder at Gauthier,
which is located in Laurel. .
He hopes to someday get
noticed and work his way to
the top.
"NASCAR fame and for-
tune,"- laughed Darvalics.

County program makes students into STARs


The Students Taking Active Roles
in Sarasota County program teaches youth
about local government and then puts
them on boards to get real-life experience.


BY GERALD A. ROGOVIN
CORRESPONDENT


When he took his seat at the
Feb. 28 monthly meeting of
the Osprey Revitalization
Committee, Jonathan Patrice
was performing a unique civic
duty: participating in a gov-
ernment body that serves the
community.
The 14-year-old freshman
at Pine View School for the
Gifted is one of 83 teenagers
serving in government and
community organizations as
decision-makers in matters
affecting residents of Sarasota
County.
Patrice joined the eight-
member Revitalization Com-
mittee after completing the
Students Taking Active Roles
in Sarasota County program.
In training sessions totalling
60 hours spread over 14
weeks, he learned about lead-
ership, how county govern-
ment works and how youth
can be equal partners with
adults in governing. He spent
Saturday and Sundays in the
course in sessions that ran for
five hours or more.
, STAR offers its graduates
their choice of advisory
boards with the county and
two city governments as full
voting members. They also
serve on a county law en-
forcement council that in-
volves them with the sheriff's
office and local chiefs of
police.
Some serve on a county-
wide advisory board that
assists school district officials
in addressing the needs of
youth within schools. Still
others are directors of the
more than 1,000 nonprofit
organizations in the county.
Altogether, 190 teenagers


have graduated STAR train-
ing, and moved onto county
government and community
boards since 2000.

Rewards
STAR is one of only two
programs of its kind in the
United States. The prospect
of a national financial grant
to develop civic engagement
activities prompted county
commissioner Shannon
Staub, Wend' Hopkins of the
Community Foundation of
Sarasota and Karen Bogues,
Community Youth Develop-
ment, to try to develop'an
appropriate plan to win the
grant. They put together a
successful proposal after
meeting with teenagers to get
their views on how to im-
prove teen lives.
Youngsters told them,, ac-
cording to Bogues, that they
did not understand how
government works here, and
they wanted to learn. They
complained that their parents.
didn't talk about politics or
the way government works.
And few were involved. Con-
sequently, they said, they
could not discover how to
become involved themselves.
Participants must agree to
serve at least one year., They
can renew, or move to an-
other organization.
One reward, beyond per-
sonal satisfaction, is a half
credit toward graduation from
high school, as well as com-
munity service hours, which
support scholarship applica-
tions.
The future of Osprey
A collaboration among the
Community Foundation of
Sarasota County, Community
Youth Development, the


county school board, the city
of Sarasota and the county
government has operated
STAR from its beginning in
2000. An annual budget of
more than $650,000 under-
writes the program. The
money comes from the coun-
ty, private foundations and
contributions from individu-
als and businesses.
An Osprey resident, Patrice
requested assignment to the
revitalization committee.
"Of all the advisory boards
I could serve," he said, "this
one affects me the most."
The Revitalization Plan is
supposed to "renew the area
of Osprey for the future, and
we teens and children are
the future of Osprey."
He hopes to stay on the
committee until he graduates
from. Pine View in 2008.
Meanwhile, he's already
working with his colleagues
to reexamine revitalization of
the Osprey waterfront. Once
a fishing village, the com-
munity has lost a significant
portion. of public access to
Little Sarasota Bay. .
"Until recently, I never
looked down Bay Street to-
ward the water," he admitted.
"The water's right there, at
the end of the street. It
would be a shame if devel-
opers built there, and took
away that access."
Probably busier than most
teenagers, Patrice has further
complicated his life with his
committee duties. He's a
shooting guard on the Venice
High reserve basketball team
- "I've patterned my game
on that of Paul Pierce of the
Boston Celtics," and a
member of the Future Busi-
ness Leaders of America.
The Patrice family, which
includes his 6-year-old twin
sisters and parents, moved to
Osprey 2-1/2 years ago.
His long, long-term objec-
tive is to emulate his father,
and go into medicine. Stephen
Patrice, his father, is a radia-
don oncologist.

Local bishop reacts to


announcement of farm


worker, Taco Bell agreement


STAFF REPORT .

Most Re\. John J. Nevins,
Bishop of the Catholic
Diocese of Venice in Florida,
said he was pleased to learn
that the Coalition of Immok-
alee Workers iCIW), YLJNI!
Brands Inc., and Taco Bell
had reached a satisfactory
agreement March 8 to end a
three year boycott of the
firms by CIW and its sup-
porters.
"I congratulate the leader-
ship and members of the
Coalition of Immokalee
Workers for their long-term
and persistent efforts to


bring human dignity and fair
wages to farm workers and
their families," said Bishop
Nevins. "At the same time I
thank the executives of
YUM! Brands, Taco Bell and
the major growers for their
willingness to. enter into
constructive dialogue with
the Coalition and to con-
clude with a fair and just
agreement that will improve
the lives of the farm workers.
I hope others will follow
their lead. But now is a time
for prayers of thanksgivifig
and celebration."
Bishop Nevins is a long-
time advocate of CIW who


has met with the workers,
marched with them, prayed
with and for them, and
helped bring this conflict to
national attention with the
hope that it would encourage
a fair and peaceful resolution
to the dispute.
He said the Coalition's suc-
cess would not have been
possible without the grass
roots involvement of people
throughout the nation and
"all the faithful, our parishes
and other Church organiza-
tions that endorsed the boy-
cott and remained in solidari-
ty with the Coalition during
this. struggle."

OUR VIEW



Questions arise concerning Bush's new voucher plan


ov. Jeb Bush, not one to be put off by
court rulings, continues to expand his
school voucher program.
The governor's latest foray into vouchers
calls for targeting students who fare poorly on
the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test's
reading exams.
Bush would allow those students to seek
vouchers to attend private schools on the
assumption they could improve their perfor-
mance in the atmosphere private schools
offer.
We are not entirely opposed to the vouch-
er idea. There are, however, many problems
and discrepancies that must be addressed -
not the least of which is the state Supreme


Court's concerns over the legality of the pro-
gram.
The idea that private schools can produce
better students has not been proven, but it is
understandable to accept that premise.
Class sizes are generally smaller in private
schools. Parochial schools are also not hin-
dered by budgeting constraints and other
mandates set by the Department of Edu-
cation. Private schools have the ability to put
their money where it is 'most needed and
they have the luxury of being able to address
problems immediately and directly without
going through a school board or a hierarchy
of administrators.
The biggest issue surrounding giving pub-


lic dollars to private schools to educate our
children is the lack of accountability. To grant
vouchers to students who need to improve
reading scores and then not test them to
determine if their reading is improving is
hypocritical. Students at private schools have
no FCAT to measure their progress. There are
no state guidelines they must adhere to.
The state might be better off redirecting its
efforts to improving reading scores. It seems
before a solution can be suggested, we must
first determine why students are not reading
well.
We suspect there are myriad answers.
Some students may be struggling with a sec-
ond language. Some may have mental or


physical problems that affect their reading
skills. Others may simply be poor readers or
too lazy to work at improvement.
If the state can pinpoint specific reasons -
instead of lumping bad readers into one pot
- each school can plan a course of action
targeting each problem area. With that type
of specialized attention, students should be
able to improve their skills.,
Gov. Bush should reconsider his newest
idea for vouchers. But, if he insists on pursu-
ing it, he must ask private schools or at
least the students who transfer there through
vouchers to participate in tests that will
determine if taxpayers are getting their
money's worth in improvement.


Assembling the



jigsaw puzzle


LORRAINE COCCARO
COLUMNIST

It pays to go to every meet-
ing on an issue. Piece by
piece, just like ajigsaw puzzle,
the picture becomes more
and more complete.
When Sue Lang, who advo-
cated a passive park. asked
the planning commission,
"Why weren't the people con-
-sulted about this park before
plans were made?" there was
no real answer.
Rosemary Vauzanges ask-
ed the same question at the
Town Hall Meeting last week,
but this time there was. an
answer I had never heard be-
fore.
Mayor Dean Calamaras
said this was always going to
be a park area and that is why
there would be no develop-
ment on the beach. Then he
came out with the surprising
statement that these plans
were made 15 to 20 years ago.
If so, that is all the more
reason to have citizen input
first. The city has changed
enormously in those years. It
has extendedtwice as far east
as it was 15 or 20 years ago.
As the city has grown, the
center of population has
moved east as well. Active
parks make more sense closer
to those areas. Many of those
facilities planned for the
beach park that I discussed in
my first column in this series
belong closer to where the
people are living.
As for the remaining facili-
ties I have not mentioned, not
as controversial as parking
but still questioned, are plans
for three, 60-foot-wide hexag-
onal pavilions that will be
built on the site of the present
water tanks and two smaller
picnic shelters.
Each of the three pavilions
will have 20 tables and seat 80
to 100 people. There will be
two grills at each. Planning
Commission Chair John Os-
mulski pointed out that Sara-
sota has large picnic areas
that are used by different
groups and we should also.
He did not mention that
just a bit farther down the
road, Sarasota County does
indeed have a large picnic
pavilion. It is at Caspersen
Park. There are 11 tables and
each table can seat eight.
There is a very large grill and a
smaller one. This pavilion can
be reserved by renting from
the county.
On only one of my four
trips down the beach road
was the Caspersen pavilion


the 40 people who were en-
joying the site. They were
from Punta Gorda.
Besides that large pavilion
there is another picnic shelter
nearby with three tables and z
grill.
At nearby Service Clul
Park, there are six small table,
and five grills in the parking
lot area. I have never seer
more than one of these tables
in use. There are also tables
closer to the beach with E
view of the beach.
If there is a demand foi
such a facility, that is one
thing. But why not wait to see
how much need there is foi
three more pavilions?
Cost of the pavilions
$308,000- plus 35 percent
more in fees. Total cost
$415,800.
Cost of the two picnic
shelters: $52,600 plus fees.
Total cost: $71,010.
There will be a large rest-
room near the pavilions and a
smaller one near the dog park
for, a total of six stalls. That
seemed ample, but it was sug-
gested more stalls be added.
Also, if the pavilions are
delayed then the larger of the
two restrooms could also be
delayed. Cost without added
stalls: $165,920 plus fees. Total
cost: $223,992.
A stucco wall 60 feet long
and 6 feet high is proposed in
order to block a view of the
substation. Considering the
graffiti that might appear on
such a wall, landscaping
would be a better screen. A
spokesman 'from Wade-Trim
said that could be done.
Landscaping is more in keep-
ing with the park and the cost
of the wall ($4,500 plus fees)
could instead be put toward
that landscaping.
When city council mem-
bers consider the revised
plans to the park, I hope they
vote on each item as they go
along rather than discuss and
vote for it "all or nothing" as
the planning commission
and the parks and recreation
board did.
The remaining cost covers
exotic species removal; land-
scaping, including 50 canopy
trees (live oaks) and 45 other
trees; boardwalks that con-
nect to the pier, beach and
dog park; an observation
deck at the pond; foot wash
and shower at the boardwalk;
benches; a bike rack; trash
receptacles; drinking fomn-
tains; lighting; a half-mile
trail; water and sewer con-
nections; and construction
expenses.
This part of Venice is beau-
tiful and unique in its natural
state. We must be very careful
that any improvements are
really necessary and in keep-
ing with the natural land and
seascape.,

Have patience
with older drivers
Editor:
Twent'y-five years ago
when we retired to our beau-
tiful state it was referred to as
"God's waiting room" by the
seniors. People took the time
to say "Hi" and pass the time
of day with their neighbors
and friends. Things moved at
a leisurely pace. I
Then: came "progress,"
bringing with it increased
tourism and residential
growth. The laid-back every-
day existence seemed to dete-
riorate rapidly, especially the
respect and patience shown
to older senior drivers by tail-
gating younger drivers with
the "hurry up or get out of my
way" attitude.'
You know, using and hav-
ing a car becomes the last ves-
tige of our independence and
freedom. Driving permits us
to get to the doctor, dentist,
pharmacy or just to take our
"Sweeties" out for an occa-
sional "early-bird dinner."
Sure; we are overly cau-
tious and drive a little slower
and more carefully, but
crowded traffic conditions
three to six months out of the
year, diminishing reflexes and
failing eyesight demand we
stay more alert and slow
down. We're sorry about that,
but growing old happens to
all.
You know, I don't recall
ever seeing a senior driver
tailgating, speeding 30-50
mph down a residential
street, dumping trash along-
side the roads or giving some-
one the finger for not moving
fast enough. All we ask for is a
friendly smile, a wave and lots
of patience and kindly con-
sideration.
Please, slow down and
smell the orange blossoms.

LET 'EM HAVE IT! WHAT SHOULD THE CITY DO TO RELIEVE


LET 'EM HAVE IT! WHAT SHOULD THE CITY DO TO RELIEVE
I CONGESTION ON THE ISLAND? CALL 207-1111.


Advice: Don't rock the boat


Leave water to Swiftmud,


growth to the city


Who's next. After reading the Gondolier Sun article "Ethics
plaintiffs may have to pay for defense," what is the message to
citizens in Venice? What happened to the First Amendment?
What would our forefathers think of recent events in Venice: a
vocal activist being arrested and taken to jail for speaking at a
city council meeting; scaring a citizen for a homemade yard
sign that said no to the bond referendum; and now going after
a citizen who questioned some actions by an elected city rep-
resentative? In light of how citizens have been treated by city
government, should any scared citizen want to say anything or
volunteer for anything in Venice? Recommendations to my fel-
low Venice citizens: stay at home; don't volunteer; don't rock
the boat; and absolutely don't submit a grievance to the state.
Could you be next? And all this thanking the citizens for voting
to give them a pay raise.


Rabid. Overly zealous
homeowners associations
should take serious heed of
the recent debacle at beauti-
ful Bellagio. Lighthouse Man-
agement of Osprey has re-
cently canceled its manage-
ment contract with Bellagio
due to the many and vitriolic
disputes set in motion by
Bellagio's rabid board of di-
rectors.
Check it out. In answer to
the pilot's wife who thinks she
knows all about the airport,
she should be more knowl-
edgeable about the airport
and the people who live
across from the airport. These
people love the airport; that's
why they bought there. I think
if she had jets running from
20 minutes to one hour, less
than 75 yards from her front
yard, and got the jet fumes in
her home and lanai, I don't
think she would like it. So,
check things out so you
would know the problem.
Bad manners. I'm calling
about an incident that hap-
pened a few nights ago while
we were at a fast-food restau-
rant. The mannerisms of
some of the young people are
getting a little bit out of hand.
I understand that the lady
was at fault also, but she said
that the young employee had
flipped her off and she had
young kid-s in the car, and the
young manager inside \vas so
loud and obnoxious. Then he
made the remark, "What, are
we going to get all the weir-
does tonight?" while we were
sitting in the dining room try-
ing to enjoy our sandwich. I
don't know what has hap-
pened to the young people
with their manners. I was
always taught as an employee
that you walk away from a
bad situation.
Gassed. I wish our Venice
elected officials would ask
this question: Why are the city
of Venice gasoline prices
much higher than elsewhere?
Missing. I'm upset with the
front-page article "Most dan-
gerous intersections ranked."
It says that there are six in


South County and only men-
tions the one at River Road.
I'd like to know what the other
five are. Give us the whole
story.
Made in the shade. Politi-
cians in Venice have it made.
They don't have to report to
.anybody, they don't have to
justify what they do. They put
in all the trees; everybody
complained, wrote letters,
and not one word from them
as to why they put. in such
expensive trees. it's a great
job. Keep up the good work.
It's curtains. I have a com-
ment to make about all the
people who use sheets for
curtains; Sheets are for beds,
not for curtains. For the price
of a carton of cigarettes they
can go out and buy a set of
curtains for their front win-
dow.
Not confused. I have been
a winter resident in Venice for
several years and use "North
Confusion" daily and have
always wondered why it was
called that. I have never had a
problem. The only problem I
see is impatient drivers,
which you run into every-
where. Venice is the safest,
easiest city I have ever driven
in, with all your turn arrows
and long turn lanes. I'd like to
know what the confusion is
supposed to be.
Stormy deal. A coupleof
years ago an advertisement
for hurricane-proof windows
sounded great. As an added
bonus a customer was sup-
posed to get $75 back for each
window replaced plus a free
cruise for two. What a great
deal. I needed jalousie win-
dows replaced, so I called.
After a seven-hour demo, I
finally signed. What a big mis-
take I made $13,000 of mis-
take.
They never did show me
how they came up with that
amount. The windows look
great; I just wish they would
open and close right. Some I
can force open, but thei*they
don't close all the way. One
window I have to keep locked
so it doesn't fall out again. I

have called the company
numerous times, and I am
still waiting for them to install
the equipment for the storm
shutters. I get lots of promis-
es: They'll be here next week,
but next week never comes. I
never did get $75 for the old
windows and never been on a
cruise in my 70-some years.
Would you believe the corn-'
pany is still running the same
ad? Anybody want a free trip?
Bad choice. All of the mil-
lions spent on the inaugura-
tion is a disgrace when many
of our servicemen and wom-
en are at war, many of them
without proper equipment.
President Franklin Delano
Roosevelt canceled his inau-
guration during World War II
because of the servicemen
and women over fighting the
war.
Unsigned. I have called
several times because the Cir-
cus Bridge was dedicated
before it was finished and it
still doesn't have a sign. I real-
ly think in all fairness the sign
should be up immediately.
Not showing. I've lived in
Venice for quite a while. I was
sorry to see the movie theater
go down and Lowe's put in. I
think they should have built
the theater before Lowe's was
put in. There's no place for our
teenagers on the weekend. We
need a movie theater this is
a large place. People like to go
to movies once in a while.
Instead of having to go to
Sarasota, I wish city council
would say, let's get some land
and put in a theater.
Wired. I'm calling with a
comment on an eyesore in
Venice. That would be the
property that's owned by the
construction company, I
would guess, that has the
building supplies and the
large spools of cable and wire
on the west side of 41 just
north of Center Road. It,
seems to me they could just
put some bushes up there
and create some sort of natur-
al green, palm-looking barri-
er.
Ed who? Who is this guy Ed
Martin who comes back to
Venice whenever it gets cold
up North and tells us how
much better things are up
there? Why does he think he
knows better than us as to
how,we should do things?
Should we be impressed with
all the credentials he puts at
the end of his column to con-
vince us they do tings better
up there?
Change needed. I agree
with the caller in regards to
the diaper-changing stations
in restaurants and other
establishments in the Venice
area. I have been to several in
this area that not only don't
have a diaper-changing sta-
tion in the ladies room but
also don't have one in the
men's room, and my husband
is quite disappointed about
that.
If more parents would just
speak up and ask for these,
maybe we could get that
changed.

GUEST COLUMNIST


Swiftmud, the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District, wrote a column criti-
cal of my January column,
"What's so swift about Swift-
mud?," for containining inaccu-
rate information. Some of the
information was in error in
detail, but the relevance of the
information was not dimin-
ished.
Swiftmud either missed or
ignored the point of my col-
umn: that it is time for Swift-
mud to join local govern-
ments in ensuring that costs
of new growth do not burden
current residents. Swiftmud
can do that by helping in-
clude water on the list of
infrastructure on which
growth impact fees are now
levied, such as roads, libraries
and fire stations.
Initial growth in a region,
when land and water are
abundant, can be beneficial,
making needed services more
convenient. Once those
needs are met, congestion by
growth begins to override fPr-
ther benefits, and special
efforts are required to prevent
growth from harming the ex-
isting population's quality of
life.
A few decades ago, local
government tried to reduce
rapid growth by delaying con-
struction of infrastructure like
roads and public facilities.
Growth came anyway, and
eventually the residents had
to pay for construction of the
infrastructure through a 1-
cent sales tax increase.
The more effective trend is
to levy impact fees on growth
so it at least pays its own way.
These impact fees will contin-
ually increase as congestion
and increasing land values
raise the costs of building new
roads and other infrastruc-
ture. This is hardly unfair,
since these same forces con-
tinually increase new private
construction costs as well.
In our region of Florida,
once-plentiful, low-cost wat-
er is nearing exhaustion, and
it would seem rational that

nerves and prevent acci-
dents.

growth should pay for costly
new water development and
production.
Swiftmud uses some of the
taxes it levies on current resi-
dents to subsidize water
development. It also uses
these taxes to promote water
conservation by current resi-
dents.
Since any water saved by
current residents is for diver-
sion to growth, these promo-
tional costs should come
from growth impact fees.
Swiftmud seeks federal and
state grants to build new wat-
er infrastructure, but it must
be kept in mind that such
grants are derived from funds
taxpayers sent to Washington
and Tallahassee. Citizens
should be told the real cost of
water sources, not the subsi-
dized cost.
A particularly misleading
practice by Swiftmud and
other water managers is use
of the term "blending" or
"mixing" of water from differ-
ent sources. Of course, no
actual deliberate mixing of
water occurs; the terms refer
to averaging the cost of water
sources to consumers. Thus,
as costly new water sources
come on stream, the current
residents' water rates will be
increased by small incre-
ments, making it less obvious
that they are subsidizing wat-
er for growth.
At times it appears that the
ultimate goal of Swiftmud is
to interconnect all municipal-
ities with water lines deliver-
ing just one single-priced,
potable water product to all
customers. This "mixed"
water might include the water
a customer originally paid $1
per 1,000 gallons for, to water,
such as desalinated seawater,
costing more than $5 per
1,000 gallons.
Agreed, such mixed water
.pricing simplifies life -for
Swiftmud. But then our coun-
ty property tax assessor
would also find his job simpli-.
fied if he could just assess all
properties at the same value.
'That's a change unlikely to
happen.
A change that will surely
not happen is our elected offi-

pacts than conventional wat-
er pumped from the ground
or streams. Desalinated sea-
water, in particular, requires
much electrical energy and
subsequently adds to the
greenhouse gas problem.
It is therefore important to
levy the impact fee in a man-
ner that emphasizes the cost-
liness of the water, and en-
courages design of homes
and businesses that use the
water frugally. A one-time
impact fee, with subsequent
low water rate, delivers the
wrong message. Instead, wat-
er rates to new growth should
be high to reflect the full cost
of all required water facilities
and water production costs.
According to the Swiftmud
column, "The Legislature has
given the district the respon-
sibility of meeting all reason-
able and beneficial water
demands in an environmen-
tally sustainable manner."
Then it notes that "the district
has no statutory authority to
regulate growth" but that
"control of water demand is
part of the district's statutory
responsibility."
Swiftmud must also con-
trol water for agriculture,
industry and recreation, and
is thus subject to political
pressures. Can a Swiftmud
without authority to say "No"
to growth "control" municipal
water demand, determine
what municipal water use is
"beneficial" or establish fair
impact fees on growth to pay
for new water?
A huge wave of growth is
headed for water-short Flor-
ida. Current Florida residents,
many already having to
choose between medicine
and food, should not shoul-
der the burden of providing
water for growth.
Our municipal and county
governments have expertise
in the complex task of deter-
mining fair growth impact
fees for infrastructure like
new roads. Swiftmud has the
expertise to monitor and as-
sess the condition of our con-
ventional water supply, and to
determine the most environ-
mentally friendly, and cost
effective nonconventional
water sources for growth.
That's a big job. Swiftmud
should do that job and let our
governments determine how
growth is to pay for their
water.

Crisis intervention training for first
responders in Sarasota County is up and
running. The idea is to make sure the mentally ill


go to a hospital rather th

BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

In a crisis situation where
seconds mean life or death,
police officers may have to
decide if a person goes to jail
or a hospital.
Through Crisis Intervention
Training, first responders are
better equipped to recognize at
least some of the more obvious
signs of mental illness.
"We absolutely think so,"
Sarasota County Sheriff's Lt.
Charlie Thorpe said. "There
is a lot of positive feedback


an jail.

from the CIT classes."
Many citizens say it is not
a police officer's job to try
and diagnose mental illness
on the spur of the moment.
But in many cases, that is
exactly what police officers
must do.
"The idea is to reeducate
our officers so they can help
get people into crisis centers
instead of jail," Sarasota
County Health Department,
spokeswoman Dianne Ship-
ley said earlier.
In addition to deputies
and jail personnel from the


sheriff's office, the SO is trying
to get first responders from
other agencies enrolled in CIT.
Thorpe said the ideal en-
rollment for CIT classes is 30
students. He said the SO is
hoping to have another class
begin the week of April 11.
Ideally, Thorpe said he would
like to see three CIT classes
per year.
While most of those who
take CIT are law enforcement
or emergency services per-
sonnel, civilians also can at-
tend the class.
Crisis-intervention training
teaches select patrol officers
how to recognize, deescalate
and handle a mental-health
crisis.
The program
The CIT program is an


intensive 40-hour training
course to better equip first
responders for handling some-
one who may be mentally ill.
"It enables law enforce-
ment officers to recognize the
signs and symptoms of men-
tal illness, acquire an under-
standing of how mental ill-
ness is treated," according to
Sarasota County Criminal
Justice Policy Coordinator
James Schultz, "and enhance
crisis intervention skills
through real-life situations."
Schulz said police officers
are trained to look for any
strange, erratic behavior that
may be a symptom of mental
illness or emotional distur-
bance.
"For instance," Schulz said,
"why is he or she standing on
the street yelling at cars?"


Schulz said the idea is to
not take people with signs of
mental illness and immedi-
ately put them into the crim-
inal justice system. He said
they should be taken to facili-
ties designed -to deal with
emotionally disturbed people.
Trained therapists teach
the curriculum, Schulz said.
Schulz said the most im-
portant thing for a first re-
sponder to remember is his
or her own personal safety
when confronted by a person
exhibiting signs of mental ill-
ness.
It works in Miami
The Miami Herald report-
ed in an Aug. 3, 2004, story
that the Miami Police De-
partment had not fired a shot
in 19 months.'


The story stated one of
the main reasons was the
agency's Crisis Intervention
Team program.
The story also stated MPD
officers handled more than
3,600 mental-health-related
calls without incident.
At the root of the increase
in mental health calls is the
deinstitutionalization of state
psychiatric facilities, accord-
ing to the report.
Today, there are fewer than
40,000 people in state psy-
chiatric hospitals, though
there are more than 300,000
people with mental illnesses
in our jails and prisons and
another 500,000 on probation,
the report stated.

Firehouse Subs corn


Work started this week on
the construction of the first
Firehouse Subs station in the
Venice Marketplace near Of-
fice Depot on Tamiami Trail.
Kendal Cogan, franchise
owner, commented this
would be the first of two, with
a possible third planned for
Venice. He has opened simi-
lar restaurants on Sarasota's
Fruitville and Bee Ridge
roads. A third is being con-
structed outside Sarasota Me-
morial Hospital on Tamiami
Trail, shared with Dunkin Do-
nuts.
The Venice restaurant will
be double the average Fire-
house Subs station at 3,000
square feet, with 50 seats
inside and more outside. He
has obtained 20 fire and res-
cue photographs from early
1900s to the 1970s supplied
by Venice Archives. Each will
be framed and hung together
within the restaurant with a.
12-foot firehouse mural
including local faces.
Historical uniforms, picks
and axes will adorn the walls
together with three TVs. It's a
total Firehouse Subs experi-
ence with memorabilia, an-
tique fire trucks, hats and
shirts available together with
hot subs including the New
York steamer and the engi-
neer engine company. Drinks
will be supplied from the hy-
drant with free coffee, plus
firehouse brownies and cook-
ies. To create an ambience
and atmosphere, there will be
a little fence around the patio
with two lamp posts and
more seating. Southern Coast
Construction of Sarasota is
the contractor, and Cogan
plans for the sub-station to
open in April from 10.30 a.m.
to 9 p.m. Twenty-five staff are
being hired for this location,
which is one of 176 stations
around the country.
Bye Venice, hello Phoenix
"It's been a great experi-
ence in Venice, and that's the
hardest part of leaving," com-
mented Community National
Bank Senior Vice President
Paul BarribalL With his wife,
Patricia, and three children he
is moving to Arizona to re-
place the retiring president of
Desert Hills Bank. Formed in
November 2000, the bank has
offices in Ph6enix and Pres-
cott with a third opening in
Sedona this summer.
Barriball will assume re-
sponsibility for a larger staff of
62, compared to 38, and an
office with $170 million com-
pared to $110 million assets
in Venice. Originally from
Ohio, he joined the Center
Road office team in May 1989,
the year after it opened, and
proudly admits he has done
everything accept the win-
dows. Phoenix he sees as sim-
ilar to the Tampa metropoli-
tan area with a large retiree
population, plus an expand-
ing light manufacturing
industry.
"I will miss Venice, but it's
an offer I couldn't refuse, with
different opportunities. Now I
will be able to ski in winter
and enjoy the Mexican coast
in summer," said Barriball,
who takes over on April 4.

Opening date for store
Building outwork and fit-
ting out the new premises is
on schedule for a grand open-
ing of the new Ross Dress For
Less store opening in Venice
Village Shoppes at Tamiami
Trail by Jacaranda Boulevard,
according to Katie Loughnot
company spokesperson. The
large 30,000-square-foot store


April 30. The off-price retailer
offering reduced price name
brand apparel for all the fam-
ily will hire 40-50 associates
and anticipates an annual
gross of $7 million.
Casey's is opening
Casey's Grill & Tavern
replacing the former Key West
will definitely open next
week, according to Bill Coyne,
general manager. Renova-
tions to the restaurant at
Venetian Bay Boulevard on
U.S. 41 are almost completed.
Last-minute construction
glitches combined with con-
tractors swamped with work
following the hurricanes last
year have caused delays.
"We've hired staff and our
kitchen is solid with guys who
have cooked in top notch res-
taurants. The furniture is
ready to move in as soon as
the carpeting is completed.
I'd like to get it open tomor-
row, but it will be next week,"
said Coyne.
Could have moved, but
staying in Venice
"We plan to move into our
new building during the first
week of June," confirmed
Lloyd Weed, Company CPA &
Controller of Southern Spring
& Stamping Inc. The compa-
ny produces sheet metal fab-
rications, springs and stamp-
ings supplied to aerospace,
amusement parks and the
cell phone industry through-
out the eastern United States
with some international
exports.
Started by the Deaterly
family in 1957, it has remain-
ed under their control, and
currently is with the third
generation. The new, 52,000-
square-foot building at their
existing location on Substa-
tion Road will double their
size, holding not only all the
existing specialized equip-
ment, but new computerized
production, CAM, technolo-
gy, eventually giving them the
ability to triple their business.
Recently, general business
growth has increased sub-
stantially, necessitating the
need to expand.
"We could have moved,
but the business friendly
approach of city hall encour-
aged us to stay inVenice," said
Weed, who this year com-
pletes 25 years with Southern
Spring & Stamping. There are
55 employees, bu t is expect-
ed more will be hired follow-
ing the move.
Increased traffic,
we love it!
Fourteen years ago, when
Sicilian bom Emilio and Lore-
dana Rossitto came from
Connecticut to Venice and
opened Angelo's Italian Mar-
ket, there were only two
stores on the street, the 7-El-
even and their own.
"Our business has increas-
ed dramatically. Some people
hate the increased traffic, but
we love it," commented Ros-
sitto, who has major expan-
sion plans.
In October, he will open a
new 5,200-square-foot build-
ing at 841 E. Venice Ave. An-
gelo's Italian Specialty Gro-
cery Market will be triple the
size of the existing store. Add-
itionally, there will be storage,
coolers and catering facilities
and larger selections of Italian
regional wines and gourmet
delights. The family business
with brother-in-law Emrnesto,
sister-in-law Maria and neph-
ew, Carmelo, will be launch-
ing their new party catering
service.

Are you planning a party,
but dread cooking and clean-
ing up the mess?
Robin Simpson of RS Party
Planning offers these services
and much more.
Before moving to Florida,
Simpson worked for a cater-
ing business in upstate New
York. She has also worked as a
bartender for Olde World
Restaurant for the past 13
years.
"I've helped cater events
for Olde World over the past
years," said Simpson. "So with
the catering and bartending
experience, I have a lot to
offer."
Even though Simpson
delights in catering elaborate
parties, she also prepares
meals for individuals who are


not able to cook for them-
selves.
Customers who hire
Simpson can be assured their
meals are not prepared in
advanced and reheated
before serving. Simpson uses
the client's kitchen.
"I want my customers to
have a wony-free evening,"
she said. "My services include
doing the shopping for
them."
Being a single mom,
Simpson understands the
hectic life styles and little time
left for preparing meals.
"I do birthday parties, reg-
ular meals so parents don't
have to depend on
McDonald's," said Simpson.
Simpson relishes doing
theme parties especially
sports.
"I'm a football fan so I love
to cook for sporting events,"


said Simpson. "I make a great
lasagna and guacamole dip."
RS Party Planning can
accommodate any special
events needs.
"I have an on-call staff
available for large parties,"
said Simpson, "dressing for-
mal or casual is not a prob-
lem, it depends on the cus-
tomer's wishes."
Simpson request that cus-
tomers call three weeks in
advance for regular bookings
and four weeks for holidays.

lorette parties, RS Party

CITY BRIEFS


Tree removal breaks
sewage line

A contractor removing a
tree from an area that had
been designated as being
above a sewer force main,
and consequently marked
not to be removed, caused
approximately 35,000 gallons
of raw sewage to spill out in
the area of Santa Maria Street
and North Nokomis Avenue
in Venice, according to a city
news release.
When city of Venice utilities
workers arrived on the scene
theywere able to contain about
half the spill. The rest had
flowed into Roberts Bay.
The pipe is believed to
have been damaged at about
11:30 a.m. Thursday, but the
break was not immediately
reported. Once on the scene,
utilities crews collected the
sewage in tanker trucks, vac-
uumed and limed the soiled


.areas along the street and
ditch, and worked to repair
the force main. The work took
about three hours.
The health department
was notified. People are
advised not to have contact
with the water in Roberts Bay
in the vicinity of the spill until
the water has tested and the
results confirmed to be safe.
The health department does
not anticipate the spill to
affect the beach areas, but
their representatives will
sample water in those areas
to ensure water quality.
Sewage service was not
disrupted.
Street closings for parade
The annual St. Patrick's
Day Parade on Saturday will
close off several downtown
streets.
The closing will be from

that time: West Venice

Avenue and Blalock Park.
Two exceptions are Nassau
Street, between Tampa and
Miami avenues, and Armada
Street, between Barcelona
and Granada avenues, which
will close an hour earlier at
10:30 a.m.
The parade is sponsored by
T.J. Camey's restaurant and is
scheduled to last until 2:30 p.m.
Going on at the same time
is the St. Patrick's Day Side-
walk Sale throughout all of
the Downtown Avenues. This,
runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

going north on the bypass in
the right travel lane ap-
proaching the entrance to the
shopping center.

According to the police
report, the victim said the first
rape happened when Arias
grabbed her by the arm and
told her, "You're mine, to-
night."
He also said he wanted the
victim to be his wife.
Then, he raped her, the vic-
tim said.
The second battery hap-
pened two days later after the
victim's" children went to
school.
Arias ripped off the victim's
clothes and raped her.
She told police she strug-
gled and Arias overpowered'
her.
Arias cut her phone line
and prevented her from leav-

dents to police for fear that
Arias might harm or kill her or
her children.

the sister called police.
At first, Arias denied hav-
ing sex with the victim.
Then, he changed his story.
"Whether I did it or not I
am screwed. I have to accept


it," Arias said. "I did it, howev-
er, whether I did it or not I am '
going to jail no matter what."

BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Her mother treated young
RosemaryAltea as though she
might be crazy. Years later,
Larry King said he was
amazed by her, and Diane
Sawyer referred to Altea as the
"woman everyone is talking
about."
Now somewhere in her
middle years, attractive in a
way that makes one feel com-
fortable and at ease, this lady
that "everyone is talking
about" has an English accent
softened by her years in
America.
Recently moved to Venice,
Altea is still settling into her
Florida house. The front land-
scaping, patio and fountain
seem to have been recently
installed yet it is so right for
the house it also seems as
though it might always have
been there. In the back, work-
men are nearly finished
installing a swimming pool. A
large lake adds to the serenity.
We are seated on opposite
sofas in a small room at the
back of the house. I can see
the lake through the open
doorway.
"Grey Eagle told me I'd be
coming to America," she said.
"I had no desire to come. My
idea of Americans was that
they had large mouths, big
teeth and they were pushy."
Grey Eagle is Altea's spirit
guide (think of a spirit and a
guide) and one of the reasons
she came to America in the
first place, she said.
Altea's initial view of Amer-
icans was formed in Hong
Kong, which had a large col-
ony of Americans when she
first visited there in the early
1990s. Listening to their vari-
ous comments and descrip-
tions of people, she thought
Americans a strange bunch,
especially when they made a
point of describing people by
their color or their religion.
Yet neither her trip to Hong
Kong nor her first trip to-
America was as long a trip as


the one that took her from
being a frightened child who
saw nameless faces in the
middle of the night to the in-
telligent and well-spoken!
adult who sat before me,
describing the journey that
had brought her here.


"You Own the Power," by
Rosemary Altea, pub. by Quill,
an imprint of Harper Collins,
2001. ISBN 0-06-095936-3, PB,
$13.

Back to the beginning
Growing up in Lecester,
England, the frightened little
girl had many a sleepless
night, often scared nearly out
of her wits by the appearance
of so many nameless faces. To
make matters worse, when
she would awaken in the mid-
dle of the night, screaming in.
fear, her mother would not
comfort her. Instead, she
would tell her she would end
up being "sent to the Towers
like her grandmother."
Altea's grandmother also
had seen nameless faces' and,
when she did, she would sign
herself into the Towers, an
asylum for the insane, until
the faces would go away. They
rarely did, nor did she ever
understand what might be
happening to her. She just
considered herself crazy. Her
grandmother diedwhenAltea
was just 6 weeks old. Altea
never knew that woman but


she heard plenty from her
mother, who must have
feared that her child also was
crazy.
"I grew up knowing I was
strange," Altea said. "I learned
to suppress it. If I streamed
she (her mother) would give
me a beating."
Keeping quiet about her
experiences, Altea married
and had a child, trying all the
while to both live a normal life
and to appear normal, de-
spite her continual "dreams"
and "visitations."
When she was 34, her frag-
ile world shattered. Her hus-
band left her and her then 10-
year-old daughter, and the
voices began to come on even
stronger.
"One day I saw a man
across from me," Altea said.
"It would have been normal
to run, not to talk to him."
Altea talked to him.
On another morning, she
was in bed, cuddling with her
daughter, when her daughter
asked her if she could "see
silly grandpa."
"I asked her if he could give
me a message and he said,
'Pee Pie,' to my daughter,"
Altea said. "Popeye was his
favorite cartoon character so
that was his way of telling me
it was really him."
Thatwas the turning point. .
Altea began to accept her gift
and began taking consulta-
tions. She placed one little
two-line ad in the paper, the
only ad she has ever placed.
People found their way to
her and soon she was helping
people in all walks of life and
from all over the world,
including a lady named Anne
Fuch who lived in New York
City.
When she finally did come
to New bork, Fuch took her to
lunch and asked what she
could do to help the woman
who had helped her so much.
"You need an agent," Fuch
said to Altea, who was writing
her first book.
As it happened, Fuch was
then the editor of Vogue mag-

azine. She found an agent for

Soon she was appearing on
the "Diane Sawyer Show,"
"Larry King Live" and "Op-

The class consists mostly
of Bird Bay Village residents,
but some from outside
choose to attend the class
for its benefits. The hour-
long program starts with
stretches and calesthenics,
then moves on to moderate
to fast paced dances. The
dancing is followed with a
cool down period of relax-
ing exercises and slow
stretches. .
"Sometimes we get an
audience," McFadden said of
the pool outside.
A mix tape of oldies and
dance tunes help the enthusi-
asm members have for the
class. Songs include "Mu-
stang Sally," "Wooly Bully"
and "Ruby Ruby." Other
dances include a soft-shoe
number that uses the track
"Carolina." Some of the
dances require the whole
class to dance in unison like
a square dance, which is
always a bail of hay.
"We get snowbirds and
regulars," class member Judie
Bauer said. "It's because of
our wonderful teacher."
Regulars include front
row members like Marisa

To donate blood, you must
be in good health, 17 years of
age or older and weigh a min-
imum of 110 pounds. There is
no upper age limit and most
chronic health conditions
and medications are accept-
able. As a benefit to the do-
nor, a mini health check,
which includes evaluations
of blood pressure, iron level
and cholesterol screening, is
performed to help the donor


maintain good health. The
entire procedure, from com-
pleting a short medical his-
tory to drawing blood and
resting afterward with re-
freshments, takes about 30
to 45 minutes. Blood dona-
tion is safe, and healthy
people can donate every 56
days.
With one donation three
lives can be saved. Accident
victims, burn victims and
cancer patients, including
young children, are only a
few of the life-saving rea-


sons to give blood. Giving
blood can change your
life. It reduces the risk of
cancer, stroke and heart
attack.
Florida's Blood Center is
the sole provider of blood
and blood products for
Venice Regional Medical
Center and Englewood Com-
munity Hospital.

blood donation, visit flori-

Raised up on the third day


In predicting his coming
death and resurrection Jesus
told his disciples, "The Son of
Man must suffer many
things, and be rejected by the
elders and chief priests and
scribes, and be killed, and be
raised up on the third day"
(Luke 9:22). Jesus predicted
his death and resurrection
months before it occurred. As
other defenders of the
Christian faith have pointed
out; if any of us were to make
such predictions about our-
selves to those around us, we
would most likely be regarded


as crazy.
Josephus, a Jewish histori-
an, writing at the end of the
first century A.D. for the pur-
pose of pleasing the Romans,
includes this most interest-
ing section found in his
Antiquities, (18.3.3): "Now
there was about this time
Jesus, a wise man, if it be law-
ful to call him a man; for he
was a doer of wonderful
works, a teacher of such men
as receive truth with pleasure.
He drew over to him many
Jews, and also many of the
Gentiles. This man was the
Christ. And when Pilate had
condemned him to the cross,
upon his impeachment by
the principal men among us,
those who had loved him
from the first did not forsake
him, for he appeared to them
alive on the third day, the
divine prophets having spo-
ken these and other wonder-
ful things about him. And
even now, the tribe. of
Christians, so named from

him, are not extinct at this
day"
In our times when so
much effort is being made to
play down the Christian her-
itage of our nation's history,
it is important to consider
again the place and role- of
primary sources in doing his-
torical research. The resurrec-
tion of Christ is a fact of his-
tory recognized by those who
were personally opposed to
Christianity within- the first
century. Josephus was not
seeking to defend Christ-
ianity. He was simply refer-
encing its historical setting.
Although this may seem like a
small matter, it puts to death
any notion that the resurrec-
tion of Christ was a later
development of some Christ-
ian community in North
Africa several hundred years
after the fact. The resurrec-
tion of Christ was not an idea
that evolved from within the
context of the "faithful."


Expressed another way, the
resurrection of Christ is not
the stuff of legends and
mythology.
Anyone reading the New
Testament will discover that
the preaching and teaching of
the Apostles of Christ cen-
tered on his life, death and
resurrection. As Josh Mc-
Dowell points out in his book,
"Evidence that Demands a
Verdict" (pg. 186), "all but four
of the major world religions
are based on mere philosoph-
ical propositions. Of the four
that are based on personali-
ties rather than a philosophi-
cal system (Judaism, Bud-
dhism, Islam, Christianity),
only Christianity claims an
empty tomb for its founder."
Christianity is not in the first
place an ethical system or a
path to living a good life. It is
an acknowledgement of God
taking on flesh and blood in
the person of Jesus Christ.
The resurrection of Christ


from the dead vindicates this
claim.
It was Socrates who chal-
lenged his hearers to "know
thyself," to examine their
heretofore unexamined lives.
If we do examine our lives, we-
will face the truth that we are
sinful and contribute to the
burdens and sorrows of a fall-
en world. It was Jesus Christ
who. asked the following
questions, "Who do you say
that I am? What do you think
of Christ? Whose son is He?"
Now is an excellent time
for you to consider your re-
lationship to the one man
who has triumphed over
death. Might he not have
something hopeful for you?

Veterinarian: Exercising with your pet is good for both of you


BY DR. TRACY ACOSTA
GUEST WRITER

As we all anticipate the
upcoming beautiful days of
spring, many of us are already
gearing up and warming up
for the great outdoor activi-
ties.
So, as we plan to ditch the
boring treadmill days and
head outdoors for our exer-
cise, why not include your pet
as our renewed spirit is in full


swing.
Just as with us, our pets
can benefit in many ways
from physical activity. For
starters, exercise can greatly
enhance the physical and
mental well-being of your
pets. Yes, I said mental health.
For many active dog
breeds, such as the sporting
and the terrier groups, exer-
cise is an absolute necessity
to a happy life. For example,
no retriever can live a satis-


fled life without participating
in regular games of fetch until
its owner's arm absolutely can
no longer throw the ball or
training dummy one more
time. That's one more reason
why it is critical to choose the
pet that fits your lifestyle.
The more active breeds, if
not properly and regularly
exercised, become bored and
frustrated, which can cause
them to exhibit bad behaviors
such as digging, excessive


barking and destructive
chewing.
For optimum physical
health some sort of exercise
should be part of your pet's
routine. Constantly, we are
reminded by the media of the
endless reports of a dramatic
increase in obesity and dia-
betes in the United States. I
am sorry to report that this
trend is also occurring in our
pets.
In fact, obesity is the most


common nutritional problem
seen by small-animal veteri-
narians, affecting about one
out of every four pets. Just as
in humans, obesity can lead
to serious life-threatening
medical conditions in our
pets.
Another benefit of exercis-
ing with your pet is the
strengthening of the human-
animal bond. The time you
spend with your pet is an
investment in the uncondi-


tional love and loyalty that
you get in return. Remember,
you too can benefit just as
much as the family pet by
exercising together. What bet-
ter way to stay in shape your-
self and to de-stress after a
long day at work than to go
for a walk or a run with an
exercise partner who rarely, if
ever, complains. If you make
that type of commitment to

were not huge. That was
about to change.
"Someone had to kick the
ball," she said of those years,
which corresponded with the
publication of her book, "and
I had to do it."
Speaking about her view of
the possibility of reincarna-
tion, she said that most peo-
ple's view of that is that peo-
ple live multiple lives, period.
"I believe that we decide
before we come here and
then when we die, we choose
again," she said. "Some
choose to have other experi-
ences. I think it is arrogant for
us to suppose that it is just us
and heaven as you look at all
the universes that exist.
"I believe in Christ. I con-
sider myself a Christian and
have since I was 2, but two-
thirds of the world does not.
Christianity is a relatively new
religion. When someone says,
'It says in the Bible,' how can
they be so closed? They're
condemning two-thirds of
the world to having nothing
after this life, and they just


don't get it. That seriously
intelligent thinking humans
can say that there is only one
way makes no sense. It is all
about intolerance and every-
where you go you see intoler-
ance."
Getting her message out
into the world is important to
Altea, and not always easy.
English is her native lan-
guage, yet communicating to
other English-speaking peo-
ple is a constant challenge, a
"cultural barrier I have to
climb over all the time."
"I am trying to communi-
cate, but not just with the
spirit world," she said, citing
the word "solicitor," which is
used in England instead of
"attorney" or "lawyer," and
"boot" in reference to a car
trunk lid.
She was communicating
quite well with me, I thought,
as we continued our one-on-
one conversation.
A second later, it seemed
that we were no longer alone.
Altea began describing a
man behind my left shoulder.


He had slightly thinning hair
and was stroking my hair, she
said.
Another man was on the
other side of me, she said. As
she described them in greater
detail and the manner in
which each died, I soon real-
ized she was describing my
husband and my father, both
of whom had been dead for.
more than 14 years.
It seemed their spirits had
joined us.
She then described two
women who were also pre-
sent, describing in perfect
detail my mother and her
twin sister, my favorite aunt.
Imagine being a reporter and
taking your entire family
along to an interview?
I had yet to tell her that I
had written three books of
ghost stories. She was new to
town and knew only that I
was a reporter for the com-
. munity paper, yet she seemed
to know things about my
family and me that she could
not possibly have known
without speaking to those


members of my family who
were no longer alive on this
plane of existence.
What brought,
Altea to Venice?
Vetoing the Orlando area
because it was too touristy,
she found her way to Venice
partly because she has
friends here.
"I really like Venice," she
said. It is so peaceful and it
gets me out of the snow. I
want to hunker down and do
some real work here."
She plans to conduct class-
es here and, with another
book due out in the spring,
she will continue her writing.
Altea also owns a 600-acre
farm in Vermont where she
hopes to found a healing and
education center where peo-
ple can go for help at no cost,
she said. When she conducts
healings, she does not charge
but accepts donations to the
Rosemary Altea Healing and
Educational Inc. Foundation.
She helps people with
hands-on healing, describing


it as similar to what Christ
did.
"I'm grateful when they
come and grateful when they
go," she said. "They don't
have the resources (to heal
themselves) when they come.
I want them to move on from
their time of crisis."
Some people have trouble
knowing when to ask for help,
she said.
"They (the spirits) can give
us incredible advice and then
there will be a point when
they won't say a word," she
said. "Our attitude is what
counts."
Altea's first public appear-
ance in the area will be March
18, 7-9:30 p.m., at the Suda-
koff Conference Center, New
College of Florida and Uni-
versity of South Florida Man-
atee, 5700 North Tamiami
Trail, Sarasota. Tickets are $35
per person.
March 26, she will hold an
all-day workshop at the
Radisson Riverwalk Hotel,
200 North Ashley Drive in
Tampa. Tickets are $150 per


person and include lunch.
Altea's.books include "The
Eagle and the Rose," "Proud
Spirit," "You Own the Power"
and "Soul Signs." Audio tapes
include '"A Journey Towards
Healing" and "Give the Gift of
Healing." Her books also have
been put on tape. Altea's CDs
include "Not Perfect But Yet
Still Beautiful," "The Heart-
beat of the Soul," "'A Garden of
Souls" and a four-CD collec-
tion of meditations.
She has been a profession-
al medium for more than 20
years; is the founder of the
Rosemary Altea Association
of Healers; a charitable orga-
nization based in England
with patients worldwide; has
five.healing centers in Britain;
and a staff of 30 unpaid heal-
ers, who practice spiritual
healing.
Altea believes in life after
death and that we are all spir-
itual beings who come to
Earth to learn.

EXERCISE tiom pa,. SB
your pet to exercise regularly,
it can definitely be an incen-
tive to-not be lazy yourself.
With your pet, just as with
us, it is important to choose
exercise activities that suit its
particular capabilities, en-
durance levels and health
classification. Consult with
your veterinarian about the
type of exercise that is safe
and adequate for your pet,
especially if your pet already
has some health concerns or
is older.
A great new online pro-
gram created by Purina Pet-
Care is geared toward helping


to improve the health of dogs
and cats and the people who
love them. The program,
Purina Healthy Steps, is an
interactive, three-level well-
ness program for dogs, and
cats and owners that outlines
healthy activities and tips for
people and their pets.
This site is a great way to
get you and your pet started
toward a healthy lifestyle.
The categories include
healthy eating, fitness, dental
care and grooming. I am
extremely impressed as a vet-
erinarian and as a health-
conscience person with this


comprehensive site and
encourage all pet owners .to
check it out at purina
.com/healthysteps.,
When exercising with your
pet, remember a couple of,
important tips. Be sure to use
an appropriate collar or har-
ness that is comfortable for
each activity.
When relevant, use a leash
in order to prevent accidents
involving cars or other ani-
mals.
Always bring enough wat-
er for you and your pet, so
both of you perform well and
stay properly hydrated.


So, whether you are a seri-
ous triathlete or a, couch
potato looking to reform, I
hope that you are ,now in-
spired to get out there with
your pets and exercise. The
benefits for both will be
amazing.
Dr. Tracy Acosta is a
veterinarian at Biloxi (Miss.)
Animal Hospital. Do you
have a question aboutyour
pet? Write to the pet doctors
at the South Mississippi
SVeterinary Medical
Association, 20005 Pineville
Road, LongBeach, MS 39560.

the produce section of your
supermarket, or as a supple-
ment. It's tasty as a.salad,
known in the Middle East as
tabouli; or you can juice it
with some carrots or apples.
The Greeks used parsley to
relieve kidney and bladder
ailments. Ladies, this can
reduce bloating around your
monthly cycle and also
provide iron, which is lost
each month.
We can't forget cranberry,
another natural diuretic. It
guards the bladder wall and
keeps bad bacteria from
sticking to it, thereby reduc-
ing the number of bladder
infections in some people.
And finally, goldenseal.
It's very popular and is used


short-term to flush the
system. Don't take it if you
are pregnant; it could induce
labor. Goldenseal is some-
times used as a laxative, for
hemorrhoids and to ward off
infections.
Did you know?
Second-hand marijuana
smoke can cause lung can-
cer. It contains 50 to 70 per-
cent more cancer-causing
substances than tobacco
smoke.

Tuscan-inspired courtyard home offered


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR

II Miraggio is not just any
courtyard home. Located on
Highland Circle, off Mission
Valley Boulevard in Nokomis,
this custom-designed home
weds formality with casual
living. It is all in the details
and there are plenty in this
house.
The formal feel begins at


the massive cypress door,
which leads into a courtyard.
Directly ahead is a bronze
statue of Athena, serving as a
fountain figure in a small pool
edged in intricate mosaic tile
work. To the right is a swim-
ming pool and on either side
of the entrance but within the
courtyard are hand-painted
murals that depict views of
Tuscan hills as seen through
trompe l'oeil arches. The

home's owner said she sat in
the family room to watch the
Ringling School of Art &
Design artist as he worked.
Two stately round columns
complete the formal look.
Beyond the Athena foun-
tain, visitors may enter the
home's casual area. Twin slid-
ing doors open into the spa-
cious family room and
kitchen area. One wall of the
family room has been devot-
ed to a state-of-the art enter-
tainment center.
Beyond the family room is
the master suite, a larger than
normal laundry room, private
office area and guest room.
The master suite has a large
bath with Jacuzzi tub, spa-
cious shower and customized
closet.
A third bedroom, located
off the courtyard, near the
pool, is a self-contained space
containing its own wet bar,
refrigerator, private bath and
bedroom with sitting area.
Extra storage has been built in
throughout the house and
there is a'workshop with its
own air-conditioning system
off the two-car attached
garage.
Facing the courtyard is a
built-in banquette dining
area, which is surrounded by
aquarium glass windows and
reflected in a mirrored wall.
Granite counters gleam in the
adjacent kitchen area where
the dishwasher has been ele-
vated slightly for. conve-
nience. The waUs beneathdihe
kitchen cabinets contain

inspired by a piece of anti-
quarian mosaic work set into.
the courtyard's floor. That
small section of mosaic work,
circa 200 A.D. was brought
from Rome for installation in
this home. i
Located to the left of the
Athena fountain, the antique
mosaic work points the way
to the formal part of the
home, a formal living and,
dining room, which features
faux-painted walls and for-
mal draperiesat the windows.
There is a wet bar in the din-
ing room. Listing Realtor
leanne Balock said that more
than 100 yards of silk fabric
were used for the window


treatments. Beyond the living
room is a wood paneled li-
brary with leaded and bevel-
ed glass windows .of the type
seen in Newport mansions.
Further gilding of this lily is
apparent in every room. Walls
are either faux painted or have,
been treated to additional
trompe l'oeil or stencil work by
the Ringling school graduate.
One powder room is
"swagged" with tromp l'oeil
fabric and :its walls are
trimmed in ornate Greek key
stencil patterns further em-
belJshed with additional mo-
tifs. The home's owners said
guests often touch the wall to.
see if they can find the walipa-


per seanms. This is decorative
painting-not wallpaper.
Another prime piece of
trompe l'oeil is a wall niche,
which' has been edged in
tromp l'oeil stonework and
filled with a tromp l'oeil urn.
Travertine marble has
been used for most of the
home's flooring.
Ballock, a Michael Saun-
ders Realtor, has listed the
4,289-square-foot house for
sale at $1,095,000. Located in
Mission Valley Estates, it in-
cludes more than 2 acres of
property. For an appointment
to view the holne, call Ballock
at 468-1738, 308-7777 or 485-
5421.

We all need to use boat ramp courtesy


The scene at a crowded
public boat launch site is
often a source of amuse-
ment, unless, of course, you're
in line waiting to launch or
trailer your boat. Then it's a
source of extreme aggravation.
A day on the water is supposed
to be relaxing but often begins
or ends in a stress-inducing fit
of frustration or anger.
We all have heard stories-
about some guy that not only
launched his boat but also
sank his trailer and vehicle. I
even heard of a large RV that
backed so far down the ramp
into the water that the rear
wheels floated off the ramp
depriving him of traction. The
entire rig slipped into the water
and floated for a while before
sinking. Tales of ramp mishaps
are legendary and funny unless
they happen to you.
Because I keep my boat in a
marina, I am fortunate not to
have to deal with public ramps
like I used to. There was a peri-
od when I used public ramps,
both here andin Montana, on
almost a daily basis. Nothing is
more frustrating than having to
endure some thoughtless
boater that doesn't have it
together enough to launch or
trailer his boat. I witnessed
actual fistfights at ramps, heat-
ed exchanges of colorful lan-
guage and even one guy get in
another's truck and drive it 6ut
of the way in short, ramp-
rage.
The other day I fished out of
a friend's skiff and we used a
local public ramp. It wasn't
crowded, so putting the boat in
the water was a snap. After we
were through fishing we
returned to the ramp. There
were two other boaters there;
one was waiting for his buddy
to get the trailer and the other
was backing down the ramp to
launch. We watched as the guy
attempted to float his boat off
the trailer without untying the
straps holding the boat to the
trailer. He backed farther and
farther into the water and we

quite the ordeal.


We trailered my friend's boat
and left this hapless guy still
tinkering with his boat while
his vehicle and trailer were still
parked on the ramp effectively
preventing anyone else from
using it. Had this happen on a
crowded weekend, someone
would have been angry.
It would be a safe bet to make
that something similar to this
needlessly happens on an
d almost daily basis. I know that
launching and trailering a boat
S alone isn't easy for the novice -
it's always easier with the help
of another person, but it isn't
sub- brain surgery either. All it
sub- takes is a little common sense
ped and some prior planning.
e Most public ramps have
ailer places where a boater can pre-
rae pare his boat before launching
without holding up other
d). boaters. If the launch site is
sped crowded, do the prep work well
t still out of the way of others. The
prep work should include load-
ie ing anything that needs to go
ed the into the boat, fishing gear,
,the coolers, and so on. Make
the sure battery switches are on,
oceed- the bulb is primed, the motor
p into can be steered and key is in the
kes. ignition. Make sure the boat's
ie plug(s) are firmly seated, straps
oing untied, and, if necessary, bow
oat. line attached. In short, make
stood sure everything is operational,
at loaded and ready to go.
Lch. Then get in line to launch
es to your boat. You should, at this
ter point, have an idea about how
i his far you need to back your trail-
;e. He er down the ramp to float your
I we boat off of it. If you are alone
d, make sure a line is not only
ugh attached to your boat but also
e-leapt to the trailer (remember our
Irink, hapless fellow). Depending on
irt his your individual rig, push, slide
rfering or float the boat off the trailer
rew it and immediately bring it to
r. one of the courtesy docks or
he dis- somewhere out of the way.

Secure the boat and return to
the ramp and drive away mak-
ing room for the next person in
line.
Many will have buddies drive
their boats off the trailers to a
courtesy dock. This is fine;
however check each ramp's
regulations. Many do not allow
for power launches or trailer-
ing.
Don't hog the dock leave
room for the folks launching
after you. No one wants to
have to line their boat around a
bunch of others just to tie up.
Be considerate and slide down.
After a day on the water
when the sun, wind and water
take their toll, getting off the
water needn't be a hassle.
Again, prepare for trailering
before hitting the ramp. Have
everything necessary out and
available to insure that getting
the boat on the trailer is expe-
dient. If there is a line, get in it
and patiently wait your turn.
Once the boat is loaded, pull

up and out of the kway where
you can then prepare your
boat and trailer for the ride
home.
A bit of common sense,
courtesy and consideration for
others will go a long way to
rnaking the experience of using
public ranps a pleasant one.
Of course, there will still be
some folks that experience
problems. Instead of com-
plaining, lend a hand they
may be new to the process and
appreciate the help.
