Dream condo plans dropped


Venice residents withdraw a height-exception
petition for a four-story building downtown after
council votes to hear an appeal of the planning
commission's approval of it.


BY JJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR


On the move
Decagonal buildings
make the rounds.


Nearly a year ago, Mike
and Addy Griffith said they
weren't looking for a fight
when they proposed a four-
story building downtown.
A fight is what they got,
even though all the longtime
Venice residents wanted to do
was beautify downtown and
create their dream home.


The Griffiths have with-
drawn their special exception
for an extra 9 feet for their
building at 215-217 W. Venice
Ave., granted by the Venice
Planning Commission in
January, after city council
voted 4-2 last week to rehear-
ing the case.
They planned to have a
pair of retail stores on the first
floor, two condominiums on
the second and then live in


the third and fourth floors.
"With the attitude of the
majority of council members,
I don't think we'd have a
chance," Mike Griffith said. "I
think we'd just be wasting
everyone's time."
Council's action was
against the advice of City
Attorney Bob Anderson, who
said Herb Levine did not
meet the legal standard of an
"aggrieved person" who could
appeal the decision.
Some on council disagreed
with Anderson. Others said
the issue of building heights
downtown was too important
to ignore, regardless of legal
interpretations of city laws.


Anderson advised council
members they risked court
action by the Griffiths if
members held the hearing,
called a de novo review.
Backpedaling
Mike Griffith wasn't out for
a long legal fight. Instead, he
and his wife wanted to build
their dream house that over-
looked downtown Venice.
All of the controversy cen-
tered around a pair of fourth-
story bedrooms pushing the
building up to 44 feet when
only 35 feet is allowed in the.
area. The proposal's unveiling
last summer prompted nega-
tive reactions, which cooled


as more people saw design
drawings.
Opposition didn't heat
back up until after the plan-
ning commission granted
approval in January. At the
hearing, all neighboring
property owners spoke in
support of the plan and only
one resident spoke against it.
None of those involved in
the appeal attended that
planning commission meet-
ing.
The hardest part to accept,
said Mike Griffith, was watch-
ing city council "backpedal"
from existing laws for ones

Rising prices cause rising

BY DAN TIERNEY
STAFF WRITER

At this time last year, the
average price of regular
unleaded gasoline in Flor-


ida hovered around $1.80.
For many area drivers,
paying that little for gas
seems like eons ago.
According to the AAA
fuel gauge report, the aver-
age price of unleaded gas
in Florida is $2.29 in Flor-
ida, nearly 50 cents higher
than last year.
"I'm appalled," said
Debbie Abrams, who trav-
'els to the area from her
home in Tampa for her job
as a customer service rep-
resentative. "This is awful."
Rising gas prices across
the nation finally came to a


halt last week, falling for
the first time since Feb. 23.
The national average now
sits at $2.25, up from $1.78
last year. Drivers in Cali-
.fornia continue to get the
brunt of the high prices,
with Carmel, Calif., leading
the nation with a $3.12
average, as of Thursday.
And people are now
learning to conserve fuel,
or risk a continuously
draining bank account.

Mayor to suggest


finance director


by May 10

After the position has been vacant for nine
months, the mayor hopes to make a recommen-
dation for a city council vote in three weeks.


BYJJ, ANDREWS
NEWSEDITOR.

Perhaps it's the fact Venice
has been without a full-time
finance director for nine
months.
Or, maybe it's how the last
finance director that was
hired abruptly quit after a lit-
tle more than a month on the
job.
Regardless, in his quest to
fulfill one of his mayoral
duties, Dean Calamaras is
bringing in the top three
finance director candidates
Friday so they can have one-
on-one interviews with coun-
cil members. By the May 10
meeting, Calamaras hopes to
have a recommendation for
council vote.
One of the mayor's respon-
sibilities is to lead charter offi-
cer replacement searches.
Involving council members to
this degree is not required,
but after James Olson quit
without notice last August,
Calamaras decided to expand
the interview process.
"I thought it would be a
good idea to get feelings from
council on this," Calamaras
said. "They'll get to meet all
three or four (candidates) and
may be able to narrow it
down."
Venice is working on a
fourth candidate, but as of
Tuesday afternoon an inter-


view date had not been set.
Why the delay?
Salary and charter officer
status have been blamed as
two stumbling blocks in
bringing in a replacement for
Mike McPhail, who retired
June 30, 2004, after 12 years
on the job.
When McPhail was hired,
Calamaras remembers him
actually taking a pay cut in
order to live and work in
Venice.
"I don't think we'll be as
lucky this time," Calamaras
said. "It may have been as
much as $15,000 (less). I re-
member thinking how lucky
we were to get him."
McPhail retired at about
$76,000 per year, and his
replacement may be offered
$80,000 or more as a starting
salary.
Don't expect talk of elimi-
nating the finance director as
one of four charter officer
positions now or in the near
future, another hitch in find-
ing a replacement. Calamaras
supports the checks-and-bal-
ance system where the fi-
nance director remains inde-
. pendent of city manager con-
trol which would be the
case if it wasn't a charter offi-
cer position.
Besides number skills, a

Round houses move



without a hitch


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR
It looked like a convoy
coming down Beach Road
with two houses looming over
the red and white lights of the
lead Charlotte County Sher-
iff's vehicle Monday morning.
Early-morning drivers on
Englewood roads saw a
strange sight as crews from
R.E. Johnson and Sons House
Movers transported the first
two 10-sided Deltec homes
from the Charlotte County
side of Manasota Key to
Kiwanis Park and Buchan
Airport between 3 and 4 a.m.
The crews will move the
other two homes Wednesday
at 3:30 a.m.
Led by a Charlotte County-
Sheriff's deputy, the convoy of
about 15 vehicles came down
Beach Road and crossed the


Tom Adams Bridge to State
Road 776. From there, the
convoy, with its police escort,
headed north to Old Engle-
wood Road and Buchan
Airport.
The move went smoothly
with only slight glitches at the
turn from Beach Road to S.R.
776 and in the loose sand at
the airport. Crews from Flor-
ida Power & Light and Verizon
were also on hand in case their
assistance was needed.
The move was made in the
early morning hours so the
project would not interfere
with rush-hour traffic.
Once installed at Buchan
Field and Kiwanis Park, one
house will be turned into a
field station for pilots at the
airport. The other four homes
will be used by the Englewood
Environmental Learning Cen-
ter as an education center.


Sarasota County Commissioner Shannon Staub, left, and
Community Redevelopment Area Coordinator Chris Davis came
in the wee morning hours, to watch the houses being moved.

'Very special'
Sarasota County agreed to
purchase the buildings after
the owner of the property,
Lemon Bay Horizon, indicat-
ed it didn't want to keep them
there because the company
plans to erect condos on the
site. Lemon Bay Horizon had
donated them to the Herm-
itage Association, which
found the buildings would
not fit on the site at Middle
Beach.
Commissioner Shannon
Staub then suggested the
county purchase the build-
ings.
In March, county commis-
sioners approved a loan of
$120,000 to the Englewood
Community Redevelopment
Area to purchase the build-
ings from the Hermitage As-
sociation and complete the
move to the Englewood Road
site.
The Hermitage Association
can use the money to reno-
vate the last building on its
site, part of a years-long effort
to renovate the oldest struc-
tures on the Sarasota County
side of the Key into an artists'
retreat.
"We don't do this very
often, except in the city of
Sarasota," Staub said in an
earlier interview, "so this is
very special for Englewood.
Not only will we have a learn-
ing center for the ELC, but
hopefully, we'll have a wel-
come center for Englewood."
The Englewood-Cape
Haze Chamber of Commerce
has already expressed interest
in using one of the buildings
as a welcome center for
Englewood.

early Monday morning hours. A crew from R.E. Johnson and Sons House Movers transported the
two buildings from Manasota Key to their new location at Buchan Airport and Kiwanis Park. ^


Two of the decagonal houses leave their locations on Manasota Beach Road just north of
Englewood Beach and travel over the Tom Adams Bridge Monday morning toward their new
home at Kiwanis Park next to Buchan Airport.


With daylight breaking over Kiwanis Park, crews from R.E. Johnson and Sons House Movers
prepare the first section of a 10-sided building for the move to its foundation.

CLEANING DEVICES."
Many toothbrushes have rubber tips on the end of the handle to. h
stimulate the gum tissue between the tooth. The pointed tip slips p
between the teeth and massages the gum by a rotary or jigging action.
If the gums are puffy or enlarged, the stimulation provided by these ,
': devices can return them to normal once the underlying cause such as'
i tartar deposits, is removed. Remember that if it hurts stop doing it.
Toothpicks push large food particles from the teeth, but they are '
i generally not as effective as dental floss. Care must be used to avoid'
damage. Toothpicks of soft orangewood are available to massage the
., gum as well as to clean the teeth. Chewing on toothpicks can,
traumatize and loosen tooth creating gum pockets and problem areas.

Casey Key Tiki Hut's future not so dim


.he abolition of a special district that restricted
g e use; of the former storage building could open
e door to its renovation and resurrection.


|GERALD A. ROGOVIN
RRESPONDENT

Jimmy Von Hubertz's ap-
;.eal of the Sarasota County
%oning Board of Appeals
$enial of his petition to re-
,pen the Tiki Hut at Casey
,ey Fish House -in Osprey
'ffEay have been won even
before the case is reviewed
,ly the 12th Circuit Court.
Soon after the zoning
,.hoard's 3-3 tie vote on March
7 effectively defeated Von
Hubertz, his attorney, Richard
"'Smith, concluded that the
basis for the board's decision
,W_ longer matters.
5 Zoning board chair Doug-
F. Frale., the moirt vocal
NWponen( at the hearing,
,:sed his decision on a strict


interpretation of a 1970
Special Act of the state. It cre-
ated the North Casey Key
Conservation District, which
restricts commercial busi-
nesses from expanding to
"preserve the natural beauty,
marine, animal and bird life
within the district."
The act superseded the
commercial marine zoning
ordinance covering the Fish
House property under the
county's comprehensive zon-
ing ordinance, established in
the 1980s. Smith discovered
that the state Legislature
repealed the Special Act in
1986. abolishing the North
Case Ke\ C.onsiervLaton Dis-
u ict.
"\Ve understand that the
county adopted a prohibition


on commercial construction
that would affect the Fish
House," said Smith. "But it is
no longer a state require-
ment."
The court has granted a
30-day continuence to allow
the parties to negotiate a set-
tlement.
"If we can work out some-
thing satisfactory to the coun-
ty and to Jimmy," Smith
added, "we can resolve this
long-running matter. In doing
so, we can save a great deal
of time, expense and aggrava-
tion for both parties."
At the March 7 zoning
board hearing, Fraley per-
suaded two other board
members to join him in op-
posing the appeal. Smith
described Fraley's position as
a "strained interpretation" of
the Special Act.

strategy he thinks will overcome opposition by the county planning commission to reopening
the restaurant's Tiki Hut.


when a fire partially des-
troyed the Fish House.
Von Hubertz was granted a
temporary permit to operate
by county Zoning Admin-
istrator Mary Beth Humph-
reys while repairs were being
made.
In the course of her in-
vestigation of the property,
Humphreys discovered that
the Tiki Hut had been a stor-
age building, and that exist-
ing permits allowed that use
only. But Von Hubertz argued
that his property was exempt-
ed because it had been oper-
ating almost continuously as
a restaurant and a bait shop
since 1951.
He had the popular water-
front restaurant up and run-
ning 10 days after the fire
under the temporary permit.


Substituting the Tiki Bar for
the burned-out restaurant,
and employing a portable
kitchen in his parking space,
Von Hubertz was able to pro-
vide about 75 percent of his
regular menu. A hastily erect-
ed tent covered as many as
40 diners.
As a nonconforming build-
ing, the restaurant qualified
for restoration to its original
appearance. The repairs, ac-
cording to Von Hubertz, cost
about $200,000. Another
$75,000 was required to re-
place contents destroyed in
the fire.
But when it came timq for
permits to reopen the cbm-
pleted restaurant, the zoning
board questioned the Tiki
Hut's status as anything more
than a storage building.


Heightened scrutiny of the
permit question developed
when some residents of near-
by Casey Key and South Bay
complained about loud
music from the Tiki Bar at
night.
Support for Von,Hiibertz
at the March 7 hearing was
almost unanimous and very
vocal, so much so that
Fraley had to calm. the
capacity crowd. Osprey resi-
dents have been very sup-
portive, according to Von
Hubertz, since the an-
nouncement that -the Flying
Bridge restaurant would
close, and be replaced by
luxury condominiums.
The Flying Bridge, another
waterfront restaurant, just
across the road, has operated
for 35 years.

Neighbors fear for future



of Chauncy Howard Park


City staff calls its rezoning nothing more
than 'housecleaning,' but area residents
ask for promises.


BYJJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

Tony Cagliosto under-
stands Venice has no plans to
develop the relatively undis-
turbed 0.67 acres of Chauncy
Howard Park.
The Gulf Twin Towers
Condominium resident wants
a promise that'll be the think-
ing 10 or 20 years from now.
The Venice Planning Com-
mission recommended re-
zoning approval for the small
park at 601 The Esplanade,
just north of Venice Beach. A
park with benches, beach
access and a drinking fountain
for a decade, city staff only
now is asking to have it offi-
cially rezoned from multi-
family to government use.
There are no plans to ex-
pand the park and bulldoze
over Mother Nature, but
Cagliosto would like that in
writing for 10 or more years
from now when the city is
searching for more public
beach parking spots.
"It's a quiet place, so let's
keep it a quiet place," Cag-
liosto told planning commis-
sion.
The rezoning passed 6-0,
with Benny Weaver absent
from the meeting. The matter
now goes to city council for
final approval.


As for promises of no future
development, the planning
commission could not offer
that.
Venice does not own the
land. The city has a 50-year
lease from the state, which
owns the site, and a manage-
ment agreement that only
allows for the rest area and
walkover access to the beach.
Any future development
plans would have to go
through the state first and
then through planning com-
mission, explained compre-
hensive planner Don Caillou-
ette. There are no discussions
of changes at the site, Cail-
louette said.
"What we're doing here is
cleaning house, more less,
nothing more," Caillouette
said.
Moming Star Road.
no more
Residents at the Venice Bay
Adult Mobile Home Park were
confused last year when they
showed up and their access
road on the north side of
Hatchett Creek Bridge off of
U.S. 41 Business had a sign
that said Hatchett Creek Road.
That was the wrong name,
and after some checking by
Florida Department of Trans-
portation, the state found the
road's name actually was


Morning Star Road and they
hung up that sign.
At least 54 residents of the
mobile home park said that
doesn't make sense, especially
since the road is only about
400 feet long, there are no
homes on that segment and it
leads into Venice Bay Adult
Mobile Home Park.
On Tuesday, those residents
got their wish and Morning
Star Road will be renamed
Venice Bay Drive. The confu-
sion over road names has
made it difficult for people to
find the mobile home park,
according to Leonard Dolezal
ofVenice Bay Adult Park.
"I thought I ought to do
something about it before
they change the name of
Venice (city) to Morning Star,"
Dolezal said.
Caillouette represented the
city and said the only out-
standing issue was the $400
needed to replace the FDOT
road signs at the intersection.
There was no opposition, and
the city has no preference on
the street's name.
The planning commission
approved the request by a 6-0
vote on the stipulation Venice
Bay Adult Park pays the sign
replacement costs.
"To me, it's sort of like a
comedy of errors," Caillouette
said. "If you look on the plats
(design plans), it's actually
just called 'entrance road.'"

CITY NOTES


OMI manager removed
City Manager Marty Black
has recently witnessed the
benefits of contracting out
management of the city utili-
ties department.
There's no fighting with
union officials over whether
someone gets to keep his or
her job. That person simply
goes away without ever enter-
ing the grievance process.
A 6-inch clay sewage pipe
repair along Gulf Street on
April 13 led to allegations of
hidden sewage spills and con-
taminated soil being dumped
at the city's drinking water
plant. According to official city
reports, there was no spilling
of sewage and none of the soil
removed was contaminated.
Despite this, Operations
Management Inc. foreman
Tim Newton practiced what
Black calls "poor judgment."
The utilities division is under
such intense scrutiny from
residents and state and federal
regulators that even the ap-
pearance of dumping tainted
soil at the drinking water plant
- instead of the wastewater
plant where it belongs is too
much.
OMI supervisors "remov-
ed" Newton from city opera-
tions without Black ever filing
a request.
In no way does this inci-
dent jeopardize the pending
plea agreement between the
city and the Environmental


Protection Agency, resolving a
multi-year investigation into
wastewater plant impropri-
eties, according to Black.
Beach project contractor
announced
The Army Corps, of
Engineers announced the ap-
parent low bidder for the
Venice Beach renourishment
contract is Weeks Marine, of
Covington, La.
The company, which
agreed to do the job for $12.1
million, was among three
companies to bid on the job.
An update regarding the
contract and the project will
be presented at the April 26
Venice City Council meeting,
which begins at 1:30 p.m. in
council chambers at city hall,
401 W. Venice Ave.
The project, which will add
130-160 feet of sand seaward
of the existing shoreline from
the jetties to the Venice Mu-
nicipal Fishing Pier, is expect-
ed to begin during the first
two weeks in May. About
900,000 cubic yards of sand
will be placed along 3.2 miles
of beach.
The city of Venice will be
working closely with the con-
tractor and the Army Corps of
Engineers to protect wildlife
during the project. Sea turtle
and shore bird nests will be
monitored.
The city will build 7.3 acres
of offshore reef as part of its


permit for the renourishment.
Reefs, as opposed to flat ocean
floor, help keep wave actionA
from pulling ,sand off the
shoreline.
Envision Venice meeting

Venice meeting for the current.
series of meetings takes place,
6-8 p.m. Thursday atth'"
Salvation Army facility, 1051L

issues related to land use and

District antes up for school construction upgrades


A second round of school construction upgrades
will be required to meet the class size reduction
amendment, costing hundreds of thousands to
add classrooms in a North Port middle school
already under construction.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

The Sarasota County
School Board on Tuesday ap-
proved a new facilities plan
for the second middle school
being built in North Port.
'The district's new plan is
needed to meet class size
requirements by, in some
cases, reconfiguring class-
room space, while in others,
adding additional classrooms.
While there are no price tags,
previous revisions have cost
more than $640,000.
In a separate action, the
board was unable to come to
consensus on support for the
governor's proposed class
size reforms to the amend-
ment passed in 2001, which
are tied to increases in teacher
pIy and vouchers.
Superintendent Gary Nor-
ris brought forth draft lan-
guage in support of the gover-
nor's class size proposal, but
let the board know questions
remained about certain as-
pects of the proposal, includ-
ing sections concerning
teacher pay and vouchers.
The draft language was in
response to Gov. Jeb Bush's
request for support last week.
' The governor's new class
size proposal could impact the
same facility plans the board is
in the midst of modifying.
. "I'm a little caught off guard
this evening," said board
member Carol Todd, who
asked for more information
before the board take a stand
on the issue.
No price tag
The revised facilities plan,


still a work in progress, didn't
come with a price tag, but the
board passed it in order to be
in compliance with class size
reduction requirements.
Administrators recom-
mended adding an additional
12 classrooms to the proposed
school just to meet North
Port's expected growth.
Additionally, the district
plans to reconfigure other
classroom space to meet the
class size amendment, said
Ken Marsh, director of long
range planning, in a memo to
the board.
Under the class size
amendment, which requires
no more than 22 students per
classroom in fourth through
eighth grades, the square
footage of each class will
have to be cut down from 840
to 660 square feet. But the
district hopes they will be able
to use a districtwide calcula-
tion of average class size that
would allow it to build class-
rooms of about 785 square
feet.
The second middle school,
on Lamarque Avenue on the
south side of Interstate 75
between Sumter and Toledo
Blade Boulevard, is schedul-
ed to open for the 2006-07
school year.
It's only the second time the
district has had to update a
facilities list due to the class
size amendment. The first
facilities update was approved
in February for the fourth
North Port elementary school.
That revision is expected to
increase construction costs by
,a minimum of 4 percent,
roughly $640,000, said district
officials.


The revised plan for the
fourth elementary added an
additional 20 classrooms to
the proposed school being
built at North Salford Boul-
evard and Sardinia Avenue
near 1-75.
Taylor Ranch
The board also approved a
contract for construction, in-
stallation and connection of
the Taylor Ranch Portables
Project. The contract was
awarded to Tandem Con-
struction. Tandem is the con-
tractor for the school's HVAC
upgrade.
The district decided to
contract with Tandem, said
district officials, to provide
cost effectiveness and job
continuity.
Taylor Ranch Elementary
already has 12 portables on its
campus. It's slated to receive
another seven portables for
the 2005-06 school year. Some
of the new portables will be
used to rotate students while
the brick-and-mortar school
undergoes renovation.
"Basically, we take the ceil-
ings down and redo the duct
work and wiring," said Chuck
Collins, director of construc-
tion services.
'"As we finish one space,
we'll put another group of
students into the portables,
and work our way through
the campus."
Of the seven new porta-
bles, four will be utilized to
accommodate the HVAC
project, while three will be
added for growth and to meet
the class size amendment. The.
price tag is listed at $329,743.
Glenallen
The district has its eye on
an unusual source for addi-.
tional revenue to fund school
construction.
On Tuesday the school
board approved a resolution
asking the Florida Depart-


ment of Education to approve
the district's application for
Qualified Zone Academy
Bonds,.a federal program that
provides interest free loans to
eligible schools. Businesses
earn tax credits off the bonds,
and the federal government
reaps the reward, passing on
the savings as allocations to
states.
"We can borrow and pay it
back for less than we bor-
rowed I don't see how we
can go wrong," said board
member Carol Todd.
The school board is re-
questing $5 million in bond
allocations for the renovation
and purchase of new equip-
ment for Glenallen Ele-


mentary School. The appro-
priation is conditional upon
state approval.
Florida's allocations for
fiscal year 2005 and 2006 are
$22.5 million and $22.6 mil-
lion, respectively.
"We are requesting $5 mil-
lion of these allocations for
the renovation," said Bruce
Munson, executive director of
finance, "but the actual allo-
cation, if approved by the
state, will be closer to $3 mil-
lion. We my get it; we may
not," he said.
In order to qualify, an enti-
ty either has to be in an
empowerment zone (only
Jacksonville fits this category)
or be a school where 35 per-


cent of students receive free
and reduced lunches.
Funds can only be used
for renovation of an existing
building; not for new con-
struction, Munson said. But
the funds may be used for
technology purchases and
teacher training.
It's the first time Sarasota
County School District is
requesting to utilize the allo-
cation. Manatee received
QZAB allocations last year,
and Desoto County previ-
ously received allocations,
according to Munson.

SCOUTS from page 1A
come volunteers.
The mission of Girl
Scouting is the same as it was
when it was formed in 1912 -
to inspire girls with the high-
est ideals of character, con-
duct, patriotism and service
that they may become happy
and resourceful citizens.
And selling Girl Scout
cookies is still a mainstay
fund-raiser for local troops
from mid-January through
mid-March. They earn a per-
centage of cookies sales in
door-to-door sales and at
cookie booths in front of area
stores.
New digs
But there's more going on
at Girl Scouts in Sarasota
County than ever before.
Chief among them is a new
regional headquarters cur-
rently under construction in
Sarasota. Girl Scouts just fin-
ished a three-year-long capi-
tal campaign, raising $7 mil-
lion in donations. None of the
funds raised came from
United Way contributions,
said CEO Sandi Stewart.
The headquarters (at the
northwest corner of Proctor
and Cattlemen roads in
Sarasota) consists of two.
buildings a council build-
ing and a training center for
girls and adult volunteers -
on 12 acres. Six of those are
wetlands.
"The campaign was very
successful. We're very fortu-
nate," Stewart said. "We're
doing all kinds of wetlands
education and restoring wet-
lands around the property."
Wetlands
"Kids come out to the new
center and put on their
waders. We've already pulled
out 2 tons of material that
shouldn't be there, and we're
planting wetlands-friendly
plants like pickerelweed in its
place that will blossom nine
months of the year. After that
we will restore a bird sanctu-
ary. It's going to be beautiful,"
said Kathy Carol, spokes-
woman for Gulfcoast Girl
Scouts.
Nearly 350 Girl Scouts have
participated in the compre-
hensive wetlands education
program using the 6-acre wet-
land on the property as a
demonstration site. The pro-
gram teaches girls about wet-
lands and ecosystems, their
importance, and what Girl
Scouts can do to ensure that
wetlands are protected.
This multi-phase project is
funded by two community
education grants from the
Manasota Basin Board of the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District, an
EarthPact grant from the
Elliott Wildlife Foundation
and partial funding from the
Junior League of Sarasota.
Other groups that have
participated in the wetland
program: Sarasota County
Environmental Services and
Resource Protection; Sarasota
Bay Estuary Project; G.WIZ;
and Beautiful Ponds.
Studio 2B
Stewart said Gulfcoast Girl
Scouts will move in their new
digs this summer and begin
offering programs for girls.
The center will teach babysit-

designed to attract teens, said
Stewart.
Studio 2B, in its third and

selves to explore their inter-

of extensive, nationwide re-

Scouts of the USA, according
to the Girl Scouts Web site.
Teens and preteens said, "We
are not Brownies with long
legs!" Concerned about their
image and wanting to let go of
anything that seems too
young, they said that too
often Girl Scouts is seen as a
"kid thing."
Upcoming Studio 2B activ-


ities include Wider Adven-
tures! (girls 11-17) July 17-23;
Whitewater Rafting Adven-
ture in New Hampshire July
10-17; and Oregon Camporee
2005 (girls in eighth-grade
and up).
Venice House
Girls also have the Venice
House in which to hold activ-
ities. Acquired as a bequest in
1997 from Alfred Buereau, the
1,000-square-foot house sits
on 5 acres in east Venice. It's
been renovated to accommo-
date Girl Scout meetings,
adult volunteer training and
weekend camp-ins.
Venice House is preparing
for a host of summer pro-
grams, including Circus
Camps where circus arts are
taught. Brownies and Juniors
can learn to fly the trapeze,
walk on oversize balls, learn
about what it takes to become
a clown and lots more.
Venice House also runs a
resident camp for two weeks
each summer, Carol said.
"We're still looking for
episodic volunteers, especial-
ly in our Studio 2B program,"
Carol said. "We're trying to
find places for people to vol-
unteer that may not be in a
regular troop setting trying
to find those special volun-
teers in their 20s to help ado-
lescents mature in a positive
direction."

Water conservation
efforts recognized
When the Sarasota County
commissioners declared April
a Water Conservation Month
last Tuesday, they recognized
t~ro local citizens for out-
standing efforts in conserving
water.
: Through partnerships with
county and regional water
managers, Venice Golf &
Cpuntry Club manager James
Schell saves about 125 million
gallons of water annually. He
spearheaded a project to col-
lect stormwater runoff from
his community and then
recycle it for irrigation. The
club also has been awarded
Apdubon International certi-
fiCation for its golf courses
atid for preserving and creat-
irig wildlife habitats while
reLducing the quantity and
improving the quality of
stormwater runoff.
In Venice, Lakeside Woods
South Homeowners Associa-
tion, through the leadership
of Lamont Andrews, was
instrumental in making
changes in the operation of
the irrigation system, result-
ing in a 4-million-gallon re-
duction annually. It achieved
this by calibrating the irriga-
tion system to apply a half-
inch per watering cycle, using
a soil probe to check soil
moisture, using a rain gauge
to check rainfall, and capping
irrigation wells. Andrews, who
became a master gardener in
2(03, also volunteers his time


PUMP frompage lA
admitted checking mileage to
tlie closest grocery stores
frpm her home to use as little
fl4el as possible.
"I drive for a living," she
said, "so I try to be a little con-
servative when I can."
No choice
Oil prices, which drive the
gasoline industry, fell below
$50 per barrel for the first time
in months early last week, but
went back to just above $51 as
of Thursday. In January 2004,
the price of oil per barrel was
around $34.
According to a USA Today
article, drivers in the United
States spent $3.2 billion more
on gas in March than they did
in February.
Despite the meteoric rise,
some drivers are just going
with the flow.
"You don't have a choice,"
said Mike McElroy, a Fort
Myers man who paid $2.39 for
unleaded at a Chevron station
less than a mile away from the
Hess station Abrams used.
"You pay it and shut your
mouth.
,"There's no reason Amer-
icans should be paying less
than the rest of the world."
Although rising prices
slowed last week, many ex-
perts are saying it's only for
the short-term, with prices
likely topping out around
Memorial Day.
"My best guess is we're not
completely out of the woods,"
said AAA representative Geoff
Sundstrom in a USA Today
article.
Aggravated
Drivers looking for the best
prices have some options.
Web sites like gasprice-
watch.com and gasbuddy
.corn list the best prices in the
area.
AAA also has a fuel cost cal-
culator on its site. By listing
your starting and destination
points, and your car's make,
model and year, the site will
help calculate how much it
will cost to make a trip.
"It's getting to the point
that I'm getting aggravated,"
sjd Joe Palmirotto, a New
Y&rer with a home in Port
C larlotte, while putting in
$2.46 premium gas.


.iEven with the complain-
in,g drivers continue to pay
whatever the pumps call for
because, well, they have no
other options.
'"You just have to conserve
aid do whatever you can,"
s;d Charles McDonald.
"l4opefully it will go down -
s(xnetime soon anyway."

Health department
celebrates volunteers
The Sarasota County
Health Department is recog-
nizing its volunteers who are
changing lives and strength-
ening the community during
April, which is designated as
Florida Volunteer Month.
The health department has
50 volunteers and interns
serving in a variety of roles

medical and clinical support
roles. These individuals
strengthen the delivery of
quality health services, which
contributes to the saving of
taxpayer dollars.
The contributions of vol-
unteers and student interns
will be acknowledged at a
special recognition event on
Friday, April 22.
The health department is
continually recruiting volun-
teers and student interns who

Described videos
at Jacaranda library
Sarasota County residents
with visual impairments have
a new resource for enjoying
feature films.
The Francis T. Bourne Jaca-
randa Public Library in Venice
now has a circulating collec-
tion of "described" videos
housed in its Low Vis-
ion/Hearing Room, and will
begin showing films from the
collection at 2 p.m. on the
third Saturday of each month
in the library's meeting room.
Described videos are fea-
ture films and television pro-
grams with audio descrip-
tions of visual elements (such
as costumes, gestures, and
settings) woven into pauses
and scene breaks.
They are ideal for mixed-
sighted and low-vision audi-
ences, because the descrip-
tions do not intrude on spo-
ken dialog.
The Jacaranda 'library's
LowVision/Hearing room has
98 such films on VHS video-
tape. The tapes may be
checked out, and the follow-
ing films will be shown in May
and June in the library's meet-
ing room (all showings are at
2 p.m.):
May 21: "The Joy Luck
Club," with Tsai Chin and
Kieu Chinh.
June 18: "L.A. Con-
fidential," starring Kim Bas-
inger.

Sandidge,


Laird trip


Riverview

BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR.

The Venice High softball
team is using its last couple of
games of the regular season to
prepare for next week's district
tournament.
The Lady Indiahs are the
host team and will be seeded
second behind Lakewood
Ranch.
But that's next week.
Tuesday night saw a young
but talented Riverview High
bunch come to Venice.
It served as a good tune-up
for district the kind of
game Lady Indian coach Amy
Kanter likes.
She especially liked coming
away with a 3-1 victory over
the Lady Rams.
Venice, which is ranked
seventh in the latest Class 5A
poll, improved to 19-4. River-
view fell to 16-8.
Both Venice and Riverview
only have one senior each.
For Venice, it was a fresh-
man dealing the big blow.
Freshman Maureen San-
didge belted a three-run
homer in the first inning,
giving junior pitcher Heather
Laird enough of a pad to win
her 12th game of the season
without a loss.
With both of its pitchers
nursing injuries, the River-
view coachirig staff decided
to start junior centerfielder
Michelle Hendrickson. Hen-
drickson is known for her bat
and defense, not her pitching.
The experiment didn't work,
as Venice hit Hendrickson
hard.
Felicia Taylor led off the
bottom of the first with a sin-
gle. Heather Boyts hit into a
fielder's choice wiping out
Taylor. Brittany Hipple then
lined a single to left. Sandidge
nailed a change-up dealt by
Hendrickson into a breeze
and over the fence in left-
center.
Suddenly, it was 3-0.
Riverview switched pitch-
ers in the second inning,
going with sore-shouldered
Danielle Hoeppner. She only
allowed two hits the rest of the
way, but the damage was
done.
Laird only allowed three
hits over seven innings. She
struck out six. The Lady Rams'
run in the fifth inning was
unearned, as Venice commit-
ted back-to-back errors on a
dropped fly and a botched
grounder.
Laird .pitched out of a jam
in the third, thanks to help
from catcher Amber Da-
vidson, who picked a runner
off second. Davidson will be
honored as Venice's lone
senior before Thursday's 7
p.m. game against Cardinal
Mooney.
Defensively, Hipple played
an outstanding game at
shortstop.

The Venice High boys and
girls tennis teams wrapped
up encouraging seasons with
respectable showings in the
Class 3A District 11 Tourn-


ament played Monday and

team, came back to win his
final after dropping the first'
set to Manatee's Jay Joudon.
Coffey came on to win 6-2, 6-

by beating Southeast's Robert
Rand, 7-5, 7-5. Rand was top
seed.

Venice Indians sting Manta Rays


BY DON HUTCHINS
CORRESPONDENT

Two words can describe
the performance of theVenice
High baseball team Monday
night solid gold.
Facing the Lemon Bay
Manta Rays, the Indians
managed to dominate in all
phases, shutting out their
opponent by a 6-0 count.
Andrew Tilka began the
evening on the mound for
Venice High. Tilka pitched
five complete innings, strik-'
ing out five batters, giving up
two hits, and walking one.
Joel Schmehl replaced
Tilka in the in the top of the
sixth, where he gained one
strikeout and forced the re-
maining two batters to
ground out and fly out.
After completing the sixth
inning, coach Craig Faulkner
brought in Martin Kenealy,


who due to injury, has not
seen much playing time this
season. However, he man-
aged to close the game
strongly gaining two strike-
outs.
Venice High improved its
record to 10-10 with the win
Monday evening.
Offensively, Venice High
came out of the gate strongly.
After opposing pitcher Ryan
Brew retired the first two bat-
ters, Jordan Lucas managed
to get a walk. The very next
batter, Matt Kindell knocked
a home run out to left field
giving his team the early lead
2-0. After a scoreless second;
Venice high went on the
offensive again.
In the bottom of the third
inning, Joel Erhart led off with
a walk, but was thrown out
attempting to steal second
base. Lucas hit a standup
double to centerfield. Kindell


Staszewski a jack of all trades


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


In this up and down sea-
son for Venice High baseball,
there has been one constant
- the performance of utility
player extraordinaire Jason
Staszewski.
As leadoff batter, the
senior's job is to get on base,
move into scoring position,
and the Good Lord willing,
touch home plate.
In the field, Staszewski can
play many positions and even
pitch, which can make a
coach's life a lot easier when
he's in a pinch.
The plan has worked well
this winter and spring.
Staszewski has a good bat-
ting average to start with (22-
for-68 for .324), but when you
add in' his ability to get on
base via walks and getting hit
by pitches, and the percent-


age goes way up.
Staszewski has scored 16
runs and has stolen 12 bases'
- both team

"Jason is a
valuable play-
er in many .J..
ways," Indian 31. ''
coach Craig
Faulkner said.
"He can play ..'
in the infield '
or the out- Staszewski
field. He has a
high on-base percentage. He
can bunt for singles and has
good speed."
Staszewski has played sec-
ond base for most of the sea-
son. He also handles third
base with confidence. In last
Friday's game against Arch-
bishop Carroll, Staszewski
could be found in centerfield,

continued his momentum
and launched an RBI triple to
right field. Following Kindell,
Jeremie Cook hit a base hit
to right. Greg Koehler fol-
lowed with an RBI double.
Pete Hemandez led off the
inning grounding out. The
next batter, Joe Salomone,
knocked a single to center.
Following a strikeout by Brett
Holte, Dan Martini hit a
double.
Of the Manta Rays perfor-
mance, coach Woody Smith
said "We didn't play well. We
played very sloppy."
Venice will travel to Punta
Gorda Thursday to take on
the Charlotte High Tarpons in
a big district game beginning
at 4 p.m.
Venice returns home
Friday night with a game

Kindell coming on strong


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

It was the tail end of the
2003 high school baseball
season. A regional playoff
game at Palm Beach Gardens
to be exact.
A big sophomore named
Matt Kindell roped two oppo-
site field home runs to lead
Venice High to an upset win
over the second-ranked
Gators.
Off of that flash of poten-
tial, many thought Kindell
would enjoy a
mammoth
junior year.
Instead, he
struggled at.
the plate and
was relegated
to spot duty .
for an Indian
team that
finished Kindell
26-4 and just
one game shy of the Class 5A
final four.
"I tried to crush the ball
every single time up," recalled
Kindell. "I thought I could do
it all by myself."
Kindell came into his
senior year with a new mental
approach and it has paid off
big time. C
"I'm trusting my coaches
more," Kindell said. "I'm lis-
tening to what they say. They
have helped me a lot."
He has cut down on his
swing. While he'll still pull the


fastballs middle and in, he
goes with the outside pitch.
Plus, he has improved his
curve ball hitting.
The stats speak for them-
self.
Last year, Kindell batted a
lowly .172. This year, he sits at
a sizzling .377 (23-for-61).
The 6-foot, 3-inch outfielder
has a high slugging percent-
age, thanks to three home
runs, two triples and six dou-
bles. Kindell has driven in 14"
runs.
Indian hitting coach Jose
Velez deserves a lot of the
credit.
"Hitting is mental," Kindell
said. "We discuss what pitch-
ers do. I think in my head that
I'm going to get a fastball to
hit."
And on the rare occasion,
when he doesn't see one?
"I work with the curve ball
machine," he said. "You have
to be patient don't crush
it. It's not fun, but it pays off."
Kindell is also a solid out-
fielder with a strong arm. He
is fundamentally sound with
good baserunning instincts.
"Matt has gotten 'better
and better as the season goes
along," Indian head coach
Craig Faulkner said. "He's a
great kid, too."
A good student, the ami-
able Kindell would like to
continue playing baseball in
college. Schools like Palm
Beach Atlantic and Samford
have shown interest.


VENICE HIGH
cmonmr Athlete of the Week


Baseball coach Craig Faulkner couldn't ask for
more from Greg Koehler. The senior right-
handed pitcher allowed only one hit in nine
innings work Tuesday at Lakewood Ranch.
Koehler didn't get offensive support, however,
and left the game tied 1-1. The snakebitten
Indians went on to lose in 11 innings.

Staszewski came into his
own at the plate last year
when he opened eyes with a
.343 average, third .best
among starters on a 26-4
team.
Staszewski, like many of
his teammates, started off a

the count," Staz said.


Staszewski has shown
more pop this year.
"Last year it was all sin-
gles," he said. "I have two
doubles, two triples and a
homer."
Staszewski has also help-
ed out on the mound. He
pitched mostly in relief. He
was the winner in Friday's
game against Carroll, raising
his record to 2-1. In 11
innings, he has allowed 10
hits and' has struck out 15
batters.


"The more diversity I
have, the better," Staszewski
reasoned.
Florida Technical Institute
out of Melbourne will be
taking a look at Staszewski
inr Thursday afternoon's
game at Charlotte.

Clerk seeking



volunteers for new



pilot program


STAFF REPORT

The Clerk of the Circuit
Court, Karen E. Rushing, is
seeking "a few good volun-
teers" to work within the
court system.
"We have an opportunity
to offer local residents a
chance to volunteer a few
hours of their time each week
to work with us in developing
a new pilot, called the Partial
Payment Program, to help
individuals who have been
directed to pay fines as a
result of court actions, but are
not in a position to pay in
full," Rushing said.
"We believe this is a won-
derful opportunity to allow
local residents to participate in
the legal process, to watch jury
trials, get to know the judges
and to learn how the judicial
system actually works, plus
helping individuals to meet
their obligations to the court,"
she added. "This is a unique
learning experience, in addi-
tion to doing something which
is highly rewarding and inter-
esting."
There are positions for 12
volunteers to work within the
court for three to fours a
week, according to Rushing.
The volunteers will be
working primarily with indi-
viduals to help them fill out
the required paperwork to
participate in the Partial Pay-
ment Program, which allows
for minimum payments as
low as $25 biweekly.
Following sentencing by
the judge, if they are unable to


pay the imposed court costs
and fines, the individual is
directed to a room to meet
with an official volunteer of
the clerk's office, who will
explain the payment plan, the
consequences of non-ompli-
ance and to assist in complet-
ing the application.

The job
A qualified volunteer must
be able to work shifts on vari-
ous days from 8:30 a.m. to
noon, Monday through
Thursday, and Wednesday
from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The individuals being
counseled are non-violent
defendants, mostly charged
with traffic violations or mis-
demeanors.
"Most of them are first-
time offenders and just need
help understanding the sys-
tem," Rushing said.
Volunteers are trained in
.all required procedures.
"We currently have four
volunteers doing the work
and they all enjoy it im-
mensely, as they feel they
have learned so much from
watching the trials and
judges," said Rushing. "It's
given them a unique oppor-
tunity to learn more about
how the court system works."
Effective July 1, 2004, The
Florida Legislature enacted
laws requiring Florida's 67
clerk of the court offices to
pffer partial payment plans.
The plans are already being
offered, but the service will be
substantially expanded start-
ing in June 2005.

BOCC, staff to map out comp plan issues


"Continuous residential growth is
not sustainable and is doing great harm to our
duality of life and environment."


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


- Englewood resident Mike Price
Thursday's meeting, which he
expects will involve a general


discussion about the issues
and direction from the board
as staff prepares the amend-
ments.
After Thursday's discus-
sion, the county's planning
commission will begin a ser-
ies of hearings on the amend-
ments, followed by board


hearings in July. County com-
missioners will not take final
action on the amendments
until September.
The workshop will begin
at 2 p.m. Thursday at the
Community Foundation,
2635 Fruitville Road, Sara-
sota.


In addition, Access Sara-
sota Channel 19 will carry
both meetings live in their
entirety for viewing by Sara-
sota County residents and
will repeat the broadcast
throughout the week. A pro-
gram schedule is available
on the county's Web site


(scgov.net) by selecting TV
19 schedule from the links
list at the left of the page,
then the appropriate televi-
sion schedule.
You can e-mail Warren
Richardson at wrichard-
son@sun-herald.com.


Months before they will
begin their actual discussion
of the issues, Sarasota County
commissioners want some
say in the direction county
staff takes.
Thursday afternoon, com-
i'ssioners will sit down with
staff from the county's Plan-
ning Department to discuss
amendments to the county's
comprehensive plan required
by state law.
Over the last three months,
staff has conducted a series of
public workshops in North
-and South County on specific
topics such as transportation,
,parks and recreation, the en-
'vironment and water.
By state law, every seven
years, all county and munici-
pal governments are re-
itired to review their com-
rehen-sive plans the
Document that dictates the
timing and pattern of growth
nd the impact growth has
n infrastructure such as
lbraries, roads, water and
ewer lines and the environ-
aent and respond with
datess if appropriate.
Last year, county staff con-
lucted a series of workshops
s part of that process to iden-
iy the important community
issues to be discussed as part
.f the amendment process.
The workshops over the last
three months were in re-
sponse to the comments re-
ceived then.
The idea behind the review
is to respond to changing
trends and conditions in the
community, as well as chang-
igg state and regional growth
management policies. The
process results in amend-
nients that keep the plan
aligned with community val-
ues and visions.
Hot issue
Likely to be the hot issue is
ae proposal that commission-
-e0s directed staff to consider
l4st year moving the urban
service boundary, that line
tat sets out where the coun-
t will offer urban services
sfich as roads and sewers and
here it will not, in South
county .
; In unincorporated South
County, the line deviates from
the interstate around Center
load and proceeds in a gener-
aly southwesterly direction to
te Charlotte County line in
Englewood. It includes all of
the currently developed areas
ii South Venice and Engle-
vood, but does not include
recently approved develop-
ients such as Tuscano on the
Thomas Ranch, a proposed
settlement area for the Mc-
4murray and Moody Bible
Institute property in North
Englewood and another pro-
pqosed settlement area sur-
rounding the Myakka Pines
Qolf Course on River Road.
County staff have already
identified "'approximately
i600 acres that could be
included in South County's
ttrban service area if the line
vere moved.
No agenda
Some residents, however,
vbiced criticism of the coun-
ty's plans regarding growth in
general and in South County
it particular.
t "Continuous residential
growth is not sustainable and
i doing great harm to our
quality of life and environ-
rhent," said Englewood resi-

dent Mike Price during one
cf the workshops. "The chal-
l.nge we must accept, for the
shke of our own and future
generations is to define, plan
and achieve a true sustainable
IJalance between targeted
growth, economic prosperity,
responsible environmental-
igm, and quality of life. To do
less in any one or all of these
areas would be criminal."
?: Brian Beatty, a senior plan-
ner for the county, said no
agenda has been prepared for

Mote Marine to launch




fleet of BreveBusters


Life abounds on


Myakka


The devices, which are fixed to buoys, channel
markers or sub-autonomous machines, use light
to measure when red tide has entered the area.


BY GAVIN OFF
STAFF WRITER
Scientists at Mote Marine
Laboratory say a new fleet of
red tide-detecting machines
could lead to forecasting,
controlling and eventually
treating the effects of the algal
bloom.
The Sarasota-based lab
has assembled 12 BreveBust-
ers, devices fixed to buoys,
channel markers or sub-
autonomous machines that
use light to measure when red
tide has entered the area.
The BreveBusters, which
continuously monitor water
samples, could help scientists
discover red tide organisms
before they multiply into a
bloom a close concentra-
tion of red tide cells.
"The amount qf informa-.
tion we can get from these
research instruments ... is
astounding," said Barbara
* iwu




L A- -


Kirkpatrick, staff scientist at
Mote.
Previously, scientists had
to take water samples manu-
ally from selective locations,
sometimes miles offshore
and often when blooms had
already formed.
Kirkpatrick heads Mote's
Environmental Health Pro-
gram.
She spoke with the Eng-
lewood Area Planning Ad-
visory Board about the labo-
ratory's red tide research.
There are more than 100
species of red tide, which
forms in coastal waters all
over the world.
The microscopic plant-like
organisms live in tropical to
sub-polar water, Kirkpatrick
said.
One species, Karenia bre-
vis, forms only in the Gulf of
Mexico, releases toxins deadly
to fish, birds and marine
mammals, and is harmful to

humans.
A team of Mote scientists
has been consistently study-
ing algal blooms in the gulf for
about seven years.
Annoying
Kirkpatrick said recent
Mote studies have found red
tide causes upper respiratory
problems (throat irritation,
watery eyes and runny noses)
in healthy adults and both
upper respiratory problems
and a slight decrease in lung
capacity in individuals with
asthma or chronic lung dis-
ease.
The reaction by people
with chronic lung disease
mirrors the reaction by ani-
mals tested after red tide
exposure, Kirkpatrick said.
"The aerosol red tide
effects are very annoying and
very irritating but generally
short-lived," said Sandra
MacLeod, medical executive
director for Sarasota County's
Health Department.
Kirkpatrick said there are
several basic steps to 'lessen
the impact of red tide. They


include:
keeping the air condi-
tioner on and cleaned
checking the marine fore-
cast before going to the beach
if needed, take asthma
medication and rescue in-
haler
Bob Rigby, a Sarasota resi-
dent, told the EAPAB he filed
for a patent Jan. 14 for a mix-
ture that kills red tide.
He said just a few drops
can kill an entire bloom.
"I didn't find it ... I didn't
discover it, I developed it."
Rigby said.
Rigby said he's been get-
ting calls from all over the
world from people interested
in his formula.
He said he has been testing
it since October, but never in
the gulf because the Florida
Department of Environ-
mental Protection threatened
to have him arrested if he did
so without the necessary per-
mits.
Rigby, who said he couldn't
discuss the formula, said the
permitting process was too
long.

OUR VIEW




If they want it, let them build it


We have more evidence that lawmakers
in Tallahassee have lost their way.
This entire session, the Legislature
has struggled with the idea of giving Major
League Baseball's Florida Marlins a second
$60 million tax break to build a new baseball
stadium. They are also considering $99 mil-
lion for a basketball arena in Orlando.
Now, lawmakers are actually thinking
about giving NASCAR $75 million for a racing
hall of fame to be located near Daytona
Beach.
This, keep in mind, is the same Tallahassee
bunch that last week said there will be no.
money to rebuild Charlotte County's hurri-
cane-ravaged health department building.
Rep. Nancy Detert, R.-Venice, opposes the
measure, we're happy to say. Rep. Mike Grant,


R.-Englewood, said he could not support the
NASCAR funding and he doubts it will pass
the Legislature.
A spokesman for Rep. Paige Kreegal, R.-
Punta Gorda, said the freshman lawmaker
had no opinion on NASCAR.
We're not sure which is the most disturb-
ing that legislators would consider giving a
company that makes billions in profits each
year $75 million for a Hall of Fame so it can
make more money or the idea a represen-
tative has no opinion.
Miami Herald columnist Carl Hiaasen
wrote about the NASCAR project in a recent
column. Hiaasen's pretty good at poking fun
at Tallahassee and he pulls no punches.
The almost-laughable reason Senate
President Jim King gave for putting up the


money is that it could be paid back through
the issuance of specialty license plates.
That's right every time someone buys a
NASCAR license plate, a few bucks would go
toward paying off the $75 million debt.
We wonder if anyone has tabulated how
many plates would have to be sold and how
many years, or decades, it would take to
repay the money.
Lawmakers recently announced more
funding for education and that is a good
thing..
But, even with that, we sense legislators
feel no urgency to build new schools that will
be needed in five to 10 years to hold the thou-
sands of new students that will swell school
enrollment and spur the need for even more
portables.


, How about Medicaid? Or why not put
more money into preserving land while we
still have some that can be saved?
What would it mean to Floridians if the
Legislature found the money to boost the pay
and staff at nursing homes a promise that
has not been kept?
And, finally, what about the new health
department?
Someone suggested Gov. Jeb Bush put the
hammer down on any new capital projects as
a message to some rogue legislators.
Whatever the reasoning, you cannot call
for more tax cuts as legislators have done
- and consider giving mega-money produc-
er NASCAR $75 million for a tourist attraction
and not fund the things that matter most to
Floridians.

Sing that the market will keep

It probably will, although
there are prophets who warn
that real estate, like dot.com
stocks, can be a "bubble" that
pops.
I can give you a real estate
tip that figures to be a winner.
What you want to learn about
is an organization called Gulf
Coast Strategic ,Investments
Inc.
S'-Before I start getting criti-
cized and follow Martha
Stewart into federal housing'
for offering investment ad-
-, vice without a license, I better
disclose that GCSI is a new,
Snonpiofit company, a sup-
porting organization of Gulf
: Coast Community Founda-
tion of Venice now being
*' formed. It will accept and, in
4 some cases, operate, "real"
^ property. For many people
and for the community, GCSI
, will be a "win/win" situation.
The Venice area is truly
Blessed by the wisdom of the
people who used the pro-
ceeds from the sale of Venice
Hospital to establish the Ven-
ice Endowment, which man-
; ages the funds for GCCFV.
. The organizations health,
education, cultural and com-
munity building that have
benefited from this founda-
tion touch virtually every
Aspect of our community. The
foundation is one of the
1 largest community founda-
Stions in the United States.
' According to Marjorie
: Floyd, vice president for mar-
keting and communication
for the foundation, who is
heading up the new effort,
there are only a handful of
foundations in the United
States that have set up mech-
anisms to accept real proper-
ty homes, buildings, busi-
nesses, land, etc. the most
established being in the Sili-
Scon Valley area of California.
GCCFV will be one of the
national leaders in this new
'process.


Usually when a foundation
gets a gift of property it will
sell it, placing the proceeds in
the endowment or other fund
designated by the donor. The
new organization will have
the resources to hold the
investment, allowing it to
grow; or perhaps will manage
it, directly or indirectly, if it
can provide a revenue stream
allowing a greater gain for the
foundation.
Floyd said the new pro-
grams have resulted in in-
creases in the value of the
foundations' holdings by as
much as 30 percent. The
donor gets a tax deduction for
the appreciated value of the
property, which can be
applied the year of the gift.
Many people will have
property that has appreciated
beyond the amount exempt
from taxes and would have to
pay a capital gains tax on the
surplus if they sell, or would
have to buy an equally or
more expensive property.
Others may simply wish to
form a charitable legacy as
part or all of the distribution
of their assets. Making a gift of
property assures tax benefits
now and can be a valuable
tool in estate planning.
Gulf Coast Strategic In-
vestments, the new nonprofit
affiliate, will have its own vol-
unteer board selected for real
estate experience and skills.
The majority of the board will
be "outsiders," that is not
members of the current foun-
dation board or staff,
Primary consideration in
selection will be that the
members have no conflicts of
interest that might come into
play in choosing or managing
the properties.
The current status is that
board members are being
identified. Once they are cho-
sen, the board will approve
articles of incorporation and
bylaws, and select officers
and then begin operations.
Teri Hansen, -CEO of the
foundation, and Floyd are
very excited about the many
advantages of this new devel-
opment, providing existing
funds and properties to help
support "workforce" housing
as only one example.
"Transform your real estate
holdings into your legacy," is
their motto.
To learn more about how a
similar foundation operates,
Web-wise folks may want to
go to the site of 'the Com-
munity Foundation of Silicon
Valley (cfsv.org) and click on
"real estate trust."

the same site gives informa-

members, John Sobrato, a

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


No complaints about Levine's performance


Editor:
The article by J.J. Andrews on April 15 stated residents who
were seated at the Envision Venice roundtable discussion at
the Salvation Army were dissatisfied with Herb Levine, and
that he cheated. We were two of the people at that table, and
that simply is not true.
Herb Levine was not the facilitator. Mr. Ebaugh, Kathie
Ebaugh's husband, was the facilitator and had no opinion dur-
ing the discussion. Mrs. Ebaugh is the director of Envision
Venice.
Herb Levine was simply writing the opinions discussed by
our table. There were two other residents present. We heard no
dissatisfaction from them either. Mr. Levine noted what was
said, and we were all in agreement with less growth, height
restrictions and increased environmental protection of unde-
veloped land. We feel Mr.'Levine acted in the best interest of all
residents at the table.
The article also stated we were to be approached by the city
manager 'regarding our opinions we were not. Tom
Slaughter, planning and zoning director, was to give us a sec-
ond opportunity to respond to questions we were not. We
do not feel we need a second opportunity as all our opinions
were noted.
We have no affiliation with Mr. Levine, and we have no ax to
grind. We are new to Venice; however, we do not like to be mis-
represented in this manner.
We want only to make our views known and felt the
Envision Venice roundtable discussion was the place to do so.

One flu reveals

Editor:
Reports on the deadly flu
virus samples sent to thou-
sands of labs reminded me of
reports on the visa issued to
Mohammed Atta months
after he had died. It also
brought to mind that Sweden,
not the U.S.S.R., warned the
world about Chernobyl.
Though nearly all the kits
were sent to U.S. labs, it was a
Canadian lab that alerted the
World Health Organization to
the danger.
The College of American
Pathologists had "contracted
with Meridian Bioscience ...
to distribute the kits." Was this
the cheap way of doing it, as
the contracting with the com-
pany that issued the dead

Whose Venice is
being envisioned?
Editor:
I am disturbed to read
about Herb Levine being
accused of cheating. I attend-
ed one Envision Venice meet-
ing where the person writing
down responses omitted vari-
ous things and was very
cranky when I pointed this
out. He asked me very sarcas-
tically if I "wanted to write
down the comments."
I did not complain to any-
one, nor did I complain when
John Osmulski spent a great
deal of time defending growth
at the beginning of each
meeting. It is obvious where
his interests lie. Moreover, it is
annoying to have his scare
tactics clouding the issues.
The last meeting was par-
ticularly frustrating because
the questions were difficult
and at times required special-
ized knowledge. Time was
wasted asking us questions
with multiple-choice answers
when these questions could

Idling at open bridges wastes gas


What a waste. I witnessed the worst waste of energy
Saturday on my way to the island. The No. 1 waste was the
power used to open the bridge for three dinghies on the
Intracoastal. The next waste was the tie-up of vehicles idling
and wasting the high-priced gasoline. I was the 60th car in the
two lanes, not quite to Center Road. Both lanes were filled back
to 41 and southward. Cars waiting on the island side were
backed up beyond Avenida del Circo. Time to telescope these
masts. There had to be more than 250 cars idling, waiting for
the bridge to close. What a waste of energy.


Go for it. Yes, Sarasota
Memorial should build a
satellite hospital in the Venice
area so they can serve the
needs that are not being met

Port Charlotte citizens, spe-

those who are required or
prefer to travel up to Sarasota
for outpatient care. Go for it,
Sarasota.
No renewal. I also will not
renew my subscription be-
cause of the Gondolier Sun
changing to three times a
week.
Good point. It's 8:15 Sun-
day morning and I'm sitting
in my Florida room in Venice
Isle mobile home park read-
ing the Gondolier Sun. I wish
you could hear the noise from
the airport where I am. I can-
not even imagine what those
people who are down near
the airport have to listen to all
the time. I feel so bad. I read
about all their complaints
and they have a point.
New game. Watching a
boat barely larger than a toy


creeping below the Circus
Bridge caused me to suspect
there is a new game in town,
hereafter referred to as Bridge
Hostage. To win, a team of
boats tries to pace and space
itself in such way as to maxi-
mize the down time of a given
bridge in a given time inter-

Happy face. You guys have

Shame. I am reading the

want to say shame on all of

Misses Saturday. I really
wish your paper would come
out on Saturday instead of
Sunday, with the ads and the
TV book. It would be a lot
more convenient than getting
two papers on Sunday. And it
would be helpful to have the
ads on Saturday to know what
the specials are for the next

Religion? Where? I'm not
quite sure where the caller got
the definition of sodomy. It
has nothing to do with pro-
creation or religion. My dic-
tionary says it's any form of
sexual intercourse held to be
unnatural or abnormal.
Doesn't sound like procre-
ation or religion to me.
Grown up. I'm enjoying the

Venice has grown enough so
that the Gondolier Sun can
come out three days a week,
and I'm enjoying it three days
a week, and on Sunday.

CHARLIE CRIST
OT^I^T'T


There is a change in Flor-
ida. While we have made great
strides in our fight against
crime in the last 10 years, the
tragic events of recent
months raise new concerns
about our safety and security.
It began in Sarasota last
year with the kidnapping and
murder of 11-year-old Carlie
Brucia. A few months later, six
young people in Deltona were
bludgeoned to death with
baseball bats. In March,, we
learned of the kidnapping,
rape and murder of 9-year-
old Jessica Ldtnsford in Homo-
sassa. Now we are learning
the tragic details surrounding
the death of 13-year-old Sarah
Lunde in Ruskin, near Tampa.
These nine young people
had their entire lives before
them, only to have them taken
away by criminals with prior
records of violence. The com-
mon thread linking these mur-
ders: the abuse of probation.
Those accused of these
heinous acts were probation
violators with prior convictions
for violent crimes. Put simply,

one's way through the myriad

legalities involved.

these criminals were out of jail
enjoying the privilege of proba-
tion and are accused of turning
around and again committing
violent acts.
Those of us who serve you
as your elected representa-
tives are obligated to do
everything possible to pre-
vent such senseless outrages.
We have a chance to do that
with an important piece of
legislation before the Florida
Legislature that would give
judges the authority lock up
these violent criminals.
Senate Bill 608/House Bill
451, known as the Anti-Mur-
der Act of 2005, would require
an immediate "danger to the
community" hearing before a
judge when these prior felons
violate probation. The judge
will have the opportunity to
review the felon's entire rec-
ord, and if he or she finds the
probation violator to be a
danger to the community, the
criminal goes back to prison.
In order to release the vio-
lator, the judge must docu-
ment in writing that the
offender is not, in fact, a dan-
ger to the community.
This important public
safety legislation enjoys the
endorsements of the Florida
Sheriffs Association, the Flor-
ida Police Chiefs Association,
the Florida Prosecuting Attor-
neys Association, the Florida
Police Benevolent Associa-
tion, the Florida Coalition

and the Unified Sportsmen of
Florida.
While these bills have
unanimously passed every
House and Senate committee
that have heard them, inex-
plicably they have not yet
been placed on the agendas
of some other committees.
Time is running out, for the
2005 session ends soon.
The anti-murder legisla-
tion was proposed within the
context of a $61.6 billion bud-
get, but now we know that
Florida will have $2.2 billion
more in the budget than orig-
inally thought.
Our experts project the
cost of the Anti-Murder Act at
$56 million for the coming fis-
cal year. Our proposal would
account for just 2.5 percent of
the budget windfall out of
an entire budget of $63.8 bil-
lion, this would be less than
9/100ths of 1 percent.
Ultimately, the question is
not whether we can afford to
pass this legislation, it is
whether we can afford not to.
Our proposal is more than
a budget line item, it is a life-
line. I urge the Legislature to
take. up and pass the Anti-
Murder Act sponsored by Sen.
Rudy Garcia and Rep. Bruce
Kyle, and co-sponsored by
more than 100 of Florida's 160
legislators. Our children's lives
depend on it.

Despite discord, water-rate compromise possible


Who pays for expansion when a member needs
more water for its customers remains the major
sticking point in negotiations.


BY JOHN HAUGHEY
STAFF WRITER


If the Peace River/Mana-
sota Regional Water Supply
Authority is to be a true
regional utility, members will
have to "hurt a little now for
long-term benefit," Sarasota
County Commissioner Shan-
non Staub said.
"One of the ..
ways you do if
that is com-
mon rates -
sharing costs ..
for expan-
sion," said a p
Staub, an au-
thority board
member Staub
"Every time
you are trying
to create a regional authority,
there are bumps in the road."
A gaping chasm in that
road surfaced last week when
Charlotte County commis-
sioners hammered a pro-
posed common-rate struc-
ture that would raise county
water bills from 51 cents to 77
cents per 1,000 gallons a
51-percent increase.
Charlotte County and the
city of North Port oppose the
common-rate proposal and
want the authority to finance
a $117-million expansion the
same way it has since 1991.
Under that system, exist-
ing customers paid cheaper
rates for water while newer
customers paid higher rates
for new water supplies. When
one authority member need-
ed to increase water usage, it
paid for expansions without
requiring other members to
subsidize them.
In this instance, the expan-
sion calls for constructing a 6-
billion-gallon reservoir off
Peace River in DeSoto County
and increasing capacity of the
treatment plant by 15 million
gallons a day by 2008.
The improvements will
add 9.725 mgd 66 percent


of the expansion's additional
volume to Sarasota Coun-
ty's draw of authority water. At
that point, Sarasota will con-
sume up to 40.5 percent of
the authority's water.
Charlotte County is now
allotted 12.758 mgd of au-
thority water. It will be receiv-
ing 2.25 percent 3.342 mgd
- of the additional 14.7 mgd
generated by the expansion,
bringing its consumption to
49 percent of the authority's
volume.
Essentially, Charlotte
County will be receiving 22.5
percent of the additional
water, but will pay nearly 40
percent of expansion costs
while Sarasota County will
receive 66 percent of the addi-
tional water and foot less than
40 percent of the bill.
One financing proposal
leaves Charlotte County Util-
ities $11 million in debt from
the expansion.
The Peace River/Manasota
Regional Water Supply Au-
thority is composed of four
voting members Charlotte,
Sarasota, DeSoto and Mana-
tee counties.
North Port does not have
a representative on the
board, but is an authority
member.
Staub maintains the ex-
pansion will eventually bene-
fit all members and, there-
fore, all members should
share the costs.
"It was understood there
was some light at the end of
the tunnel," she said, noting
opposition "is probably not
unexpected when four juris-
dictions are trying to come
together on a critical issue like
this."
What Staub didn't expect
was how vociferously Char-
lotte County commissioners
objected. She thought there
was "a conceptual agreement
that we really want the au-
thority to become a real
regional authority" among all

members.
"It came out of the blue. It
sure got our attention," she
said. "I was just surprised they
took offense so adamantly.
Talking about going to court,
that doesn't do any jurisdic-
tion any good."
Charlotte County Com-
missioner Adam Cummings,
who represents the county on
the authority board, said talk
of litigation was premature.
'"Even though I meant
what I said and I still do, we
aren't necessarily at that point
yet," he said. "I should not
have let my irritability get the
best of me. I shouldn't have
said that."
However, Cummings said,
Charlotte County Utilities
customers are not going to
absorb a 51-percent rate in-
crease to finance improve-
ments that will primarily ben-
efit Sarasota County.
"If we can't make the new
way work, we have to make
the old way work," he said,
"and I do believe Charlotte
County has the legal right to
force the issue if it becomes
necessary, but I don't think it's
at that point yet."
North Port's water rates


will increase from 42 cents to
77 cents per 1,000 gallons -
an 83 percent increase.
Not surprisingly, the city
also opposes the proposed
common-rate structure,
North Port Utilities Director
Cindi Mick said.
"I think that Charlotte
County certainly has done its
due diligence when lookingit
the impacts of the common
rate," she said. "I respect their
position on this matter."
Mick said the city recently
dispatched a letter to the
authority outlining its oppo-.
sition, but offering to com-
promise if North Port receives
the water allotments it pro-
jects it needs.
"On the whole, the city
does not fare well with the
proposed contract changes,"'
the letter states. "The city has
expressed a willingness to
cooperate on issues impor-
tant to the authority, such as
the common rate, if issues
important to the city are also
addressed. Principal among
these is the allocation issue."
And cooperation is essen-
tial now, said Manatee Coun-
ty Commissioner Patricia
Glass, the authority board's

chair.
"I'm trying to act more as a
facilitator," she said. "I know
what their concern is. The
way it was articulated to us, it
was the amounts."
Glass said Charlotte Coun-
ty and North Port would have
opportunities to offer alterna-
tives during a county admin-
istrators' conference Monday
and at a yet-unscheduled
workshop before the authori-
ty's May 4 meeting.
Glass said the authority is
willing to work with Charlotte
County, but some members
and authority officials are
growing impatient with the
county's perceived obstinacy.
"We worked very hard in
getting federal dollars for the
Peace River pipeline. Char-
lotte County was very reluc-
tant to get aboard with it," she
said. "In my point of view,
when you have 125,000 plat-
ted lots, sewer problems and
a lot of other infrastructure
problems, and here you have
a hand-made water source,
you get on board."
Despite the discord, Staub
is confident a suitable agree-
ment can be forged in the
coming weeks.


"We need to find the com-
mon ground that we know is
there," she said. "If we could
all just work toward it, there
ought to be some way to
compromise."
Time is of the essence,
Staub said.
"Charlotte County and
North Port, particularly, are
going to be up against the
wall faster than DeSoto and
Sarasota counties will be," she
said.
Mick concurred. "We are
hoping we can resolve these
very important issues -
common rate structure, a full
expansion, how to get the
water we need as quickly as
we need it and come to
some fair contract that is
going to be in the best interest
of the region."
And defining the authority
as a regional entity rather
than as an association of indi-
vidual members is an impor-
tant distinction, Glass said.
"We're stakeholders be-
cause we share equally," she
said. "We need to share and
work with everybody. We
need to recognize it for what
it is a very good investment
in the future."

False report adds arrest to injury


A man shot himself in the foot literally and
tried to make police believe he was the victim of a
drive-by shooting.


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

A man from Venice has
given new meaning to the old
expression "shooting yourself
in the foot."
Ian M. Rochek, 20, 1000
block Capri
Isles Blvd.,
Venice, has
been arrested
and charged
with making
.alse -reports
to- law- en-
forcement au-.
thorities.
According Rochek
to the Saraso-
ta County Sheriff's Office
arrest report, .Rochek told a
deputy he had been shot dur-
ing a "drive-by" shooting.
Rochek said he came out of
a house on Shamrock Drive to
get cigarettes from his car. He
said a person he did not know
in a vehicle he did not recog-
nize came up to him and shot
him in the foot.
At least five detectives and
crime scene technicians were
called out to the scene to
investigate Rochek's drive-by
claim. In addition, five patrol
officers also were helping in


the investigation.
Rochek was taken to the
Venice Regional Medical Cen-
ter emergency room.

terview at the ER, the deputy
told Rochek his story did not
make sense or support the
evidence.
The deputy told Rochek
that the hole in his foot made
by the path of the bullet was
straight down and appeared
to be self-inflicted.
After repeated warnings


about perjuring himself, Ro-
chek boldly stayed the course
and insisted that the hole in
his foot was caused in a drive-
by shooting.
The deputy talked to three
of the witnesses who were
with Rochek at the time of the
shooting. One of them told
the deputy that Rochek was
lying about the drive-by.
The deputy talked to Ro-
chek again. Confronted with
the fact a witnesses ratted
him, Rochek admitted he shot
himself in the foot.
"He. wouldn't tell us how he
shot himself," sheriff's Sgt.
Chuck Lesaltato said.
According to court records.
Rochek has had nine contacts
with the law since 2003.

Sarasota County Sheriff
William Balkwill has launch-
ed a Sexual Predator/Sexual

This tool will provide a cur-
rent list of sexual predators
and offenders who have regis-
tered with the Sarasota Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office under Flor-
ida law because of a convic-
tion for a sex-related crime or
a specified crime against chil-
dren.
The information about an
offender in this report is not
intended to indicate that any
judgment has been made
about the level of risk a partic-
ular offender may present to
others, but is made available
to assist interested persons in
forming their own risk assess-
ments based on the offender's
personal circumstances and
conviction history.
It is important to remem-
ber:

person believed to be a sexual
offender or predator cannot
be established unless a fin-
gerprint comparison is made.
It is illegal to use public
information regarding sexual
offenders and predators to
facilitate the commission of a
crime.


This report may not re-
flect the entire Florida crimi-
nal history of a particular

Friday Night

Comedy Club

is April 22

Little did I know when I
sent Venice Gondolier Sun
Homeroom Editor Peggi
Conlin-Paquette to do a story
about McCurdy's Comedy
Theatre that I would lose my
understudy. Paquette, a
teacher by day at Laurel
Nokomis School, has been
entertaining us at the paper
for years, which is why she
was the natural choice to go
to comedy school and do a
first-person accounting. Not
only did she go to classes for
six weeks and perform a five-
minute gig at graduation, she
has since gone qn to develop
a third career. Paquette is now
a teacher, writer-comedian
and making great strides in
her newest career. In addition
to performing several more
times at McCurdy's, she has
performed at Hogbody's in
Port Charlotte, at the Garage
in Delray, the Laugh-In in
Fort Myers and Coconuts on
St. Pete Beach. Following her
performance as the warm-up
act at the new Friday Night
Comedy Club at the Holiday
Inn of Venice on April 8, that
evening's headliner Ren6 Bray
invited Phquette to open for
her in Vero Beach in a few
weeks.
This coming Friday, April
22, Paquette will be managing
the show at the Friday Night
Comedy Club with Larry Silva
as the opening act for Uncle
Dow. Admission is $10 per
person and the show begins
at 8:30 p.m. On the 8th, it was
a near sell-out so be there
early this Friday. Coming up
May 6 is Pat Daux, and May
27, Dale Jones.
The Holiday Inn -is at 455
U.S. 41 Bypass North.

One of the books that Joan
Brown, owner of The Book-
shop, 241 W. Venice Ave., can-
not keep on the shelves for
long is "Welcome to Ter-
iorland," by Dan Hopsicker.
The subject is Mohammed
Atta, the terrorist who trained
for the Sept. 11 attacks on the
Trade Center by learning to fly
at the Venice Municipal Air-
port. Hopsicker will be at the
store on Thursday, April 21,
for a signing 6-8 p.m. during
the Thursday Evening Stroll.
Published by MadCow Press,
the book is $29.95 in hard
cover. To reserve a signed
copy, call the store at 488-
1307.

Scottish photographer
Lindsay Robertson, current
artist-in-residence at The
Hermitage, will speak about
his work at the Englewood
Art Center at 7 p.m. Thursday,
April 21. Admission is free and
open to the public. In his talk,
Robertson will be showing
images of his work and speak-
ing about the process.
Robertson is the owner of
Strawberry Productions, a
commercial photography stu-
dio based in Edinburgh, and
is among Scotland's most
accomplished black and
white landscape photogra-
phers. Additionally, he is the
brother of noted sculptor
Malcolm Robertson, the first
artist to enjoy residency at
The Hermitage.

SUN PHOTOS BY JEREMY ROTTGEN


Butch Gerace howls during a performance of "Hang On Sloopy."


BYJEREMY ROTTGEN
STAFF WRITER

Pirates wore bandanas like
Butch Gerace. It doesn't mean
he's going to plunder Venice.
He may start a party in Venice
with his band.
In fact, Ger4ce wears his
bandana to keep his helmet
on tighter. What kind of a
name is Bandana for a music
group anyway? You would
think there should be a
straightforward explanation.
"I literally got the name off
the top of my head," Gerace
said.
Bandana has been per-
forming in and around Venice
for the past 15 years. It was
formed in October 1990
among the ranks of estab-
lished musicians. Gerace, 59,
has had a busy background in
the music business. He began


performing at age 9. Gerace
said he was too old to be a
flower child and too young to
be one of the beats, so he
chose to play rock 'n' roll from
the '50s and early '60s.
By the time he was 19 he
was playing bass in a house
band at a club in Times
Square. Before long he was
picked to perform with the
Sam the Sham and the Phara-
ohs who had just released the
number one hit "Wooly
Bully."
"When the guy approach-
ed us about it we were like
'yeah right' because we were
in NewYork City and we were
used to all these guys coming
up to us and talking crazy,"
Gerace said.
- Crazy or not, two days later
Gerace was on the road per-
forming in Canada with Sam
the Sham. As a pharaoh


Del Ray, bass player for Bandana, sings back up and lead
vocals.


Gerace recorded "Lil' Red
Riding Hood" at Sam Phillips'
Sun Studios in 1966, which
earned a gold record. Gerace
also performed with MECO,
the instrumental dance king.
It was MECO's Cantina band
that popularized a disco ver-
sion of the Star Wars theme.
Gerace was, again, part of
another No. 1 hit. He would
continue touring and per-
forming for 14 years.
After getting enough dust
on his boots Gerace, decided
to move to Venice in 1978
because he wanted to watch
his children grow up. He went
into business -for himself as a
water treatment specialist
and a home repairman. Out
of suburban boredom Gerace
formed Tight Squeeze in
1988, which became very
popular with the local biker
crowd.
Tight Squeeze ultimately
led to the creation of Ban-
dana. Del Ray's brother-in-
law was a big fan of Tight
Squeeze and he happened to
mention that he knew of a
bass player that would be
moving to Venice. Gerace and
Del Ray became acquainted.
after they discovered they
shared similar influences. Del
Ray was a welcome import.
Del Ray, 56, is a former
member of Bo Diddley's
band. He moved to Venice
from Buffalo, N.Y, and has
been playing in bands since
1959. He is appropriately.
named after a brand of guitar
and he is considered the joker
of the band. He enjoys the
camaraderie that the mem-
bers of Bandana share. Be-
cause Bandana is essentially a
hobby for them the mood is
never allowed to become
tense.
"I've been in 100 bands
and in none of them were we
as good as friends," Del Ray
said. "We take our music seri-
ous, but not that serious.
When someone makes a mis-
take on stage we just laugh it
off and call it jazz."
Both veteran musicians
have remained a constant in
the band, although guitarist
Larry Kurran has been in the

Disabled American Veterans Chapter 101.


band for eight years and
.drummer Gary Arnold has
been in the band four years.
"Gary is the youngest," Del
Ray said. "He gets all' the
girls."
Musicians like keyboardist
Stephen Shower and saxo-
phonist Wally Gator also join
in on occasion. Usually Ban-
dana plays to a packed house.
Performances by Bandana
contain songs that span the
decades and you can expect
to hear anything from classic
rock staples to slow dance
numbers. A live performance
of Bandana can offer more
than one might think because
there are endless possibilities
to what you might hear when
they take the stage. At recent
shows Bandana has per-
formed amazing renditions of
classic rock tunes.
"I like to rock but I'm really
a ballad guy," Gerace said. "I
grew up listening to guys like
Perry Como and Don Cor-


Larry Kurran plays guitar
solos and sings lead vocals.

nell."
Gerace's years of entertain-
ing experience makes him a
valuable frontman. Del Ray
says he is the perfect liaison

STAFF REPORT


The Venice Exceptional
Student Education program
at Venice Elementary School
was presented with four
bicycle/tricycles through
the efforts of some dedicat-
ed civic-minded local orga-
nizations.
Donations of specially
equipped "Hot Trykes" was
initially introduced by the
Women's Auxiliary of the Gulf
Coast Detachment, Marine
Corps League. The men of
the Gulf Coast joined in the
program and have presented
additional "Hot Trykes" to the
special needs program. These
trykes are unique in that they
are propelled by a hand dri-


ven chain gear cranked at
the handlebar. They are
designed and produced by
the Pioneers of America and
Lucent Technology.
These particular bikes
were purchased by the Sara-
sota-Manatee Bicycle Club
and presented by Tom Chiotti
and Nancy Heinrick, officers
of the club. Representing the
Gulf Coast Detachment,

Epiphany Cathedral stu-
dents learned firsthand about
life in Afghanistan in a pre-
sentation by school parent
and Army Staff Sergeant, Eric
Schroder. Schroder and his
wife, Katie, have two children
at Epiphany, Matthew in pre-
school and Jacob in kinder-
garten.
Schroder received a warm
welcome from the preschool
and kindergarten classes
who had a patriotic themed
party in his honor. He shared
with them stories of life in
Afghanistan and what the
United States is doing to
make life better for the people
in that country.
In addition to the younger
students, Schroder also spent
time with the middle school
students. Following a brief
presentation of his job in
Afghanistan he shared a mili-
tary "meal" with them and
answered questions.
Students found out
Schroder was in a forward
operation fire base. He and
his team would visit and get
to know the people in
Afghanistan, communities,
many who lived in mud
houses with no bathrooms.
Students also learned
that the favorite part of


Epiphany preschoolers welcome home Army Staff Sergeant Eric Schroder.


Schroder's job was traveling
to other countries and
receiving packages and let-
ters from the United States.
Whether they came from
friends, relatives or strang-
ers, letters were always
much appreciated.
Middle school students
asked about Afghan wom-
en's rights. He said in the


large city of Kabul, women
are slowly gaining rights and
being educated, but the far-
ther you get from Kabul, the
worse it is. He also talked
about only being able to
take a shower once a week
and how their bathrooms
did not include plumbing.
This shocked many stu-
dents.


The visit with Schroder
was a wonderful learning
experience for the students
of all ages. After hearing the
stories of his days in Af-
ghanistan, the children walk-
ed away with knowledge of
what our military personnel
do on a daily basis. They also
learned more about the peo-
ple of Afghanistan.

STAFF REPORT

The newly formed Oak
Park South Parent Teacher
Organization will be holding
a yard sale at the Venice K-
mart parking lot Saturday,
April 30,9 a.m.-4 p.m. All pro-
ceeds will go directly to the
children and classrooms.
Oak Park South is a school
for the exceptional students
of south Sarasota County. It
was created in August 2004,
due to an ever-growing popu-
lation in the community of
special needs children. It was
also created to accommodate
those disabled children, who,
living in South County, were
spending up to one and a half
hours on a bus to and from
the North County facility.
The school is located on
the Venice Middle School
-campus. The teachers and
staff have worked diligently
on grants for needed items
such as books, and other


items have been generously
donated, but more is needed.
Financial support is needed
so that children who earn
community based instruc-
tions such as field trips, can
attend functions they would
otherwise be unable to due to
lack of funds.
The PTSO needs youth help.
Donations of things to sell at
the yard sale and customers
are needed. Donations are
being accepted and are being
stored at the Jacaranda Shop-
ping Plaza thanks to the gen-
erosity of the Krayer Real
Estate Management group.
Donations may be delivered
to the K-mart Plaza or during
business hours at Eco Water
Systems located at 22 S.
Venice Blvd. For pickup, call
809-2575 or 375-2417.
Businesses can help also
by donating items to be raf-
fled off.
Come join in the fun and
help the students of Oak Park.

Do you have questions
relating to your child's educa-
tion? Do you want to voice an
opinion about what's hap-
pening in our schools? This
column is focused on answer-
ing common questions and
sharing views on education.

Is it possible to improve
kids' memories and make
them smarter? Scientists say,
"Yes." The brain is constantly
reorganizing itself. This is
called neuroplasticity. The
flexibility of the brain makes it
possible to make positive
changes based on input.
Science has now proven
that even those with specific
disabilities and challenges
like dyslexia, reading prob-
lems and language process-
ing problems can respond to
interventions that modify
brain networks.
This is great news, but how
does one go about improving
brain networks? One way is
exercise. Researchers found
that mice doubled the num-
ber of new brain cells in their
hippocampus, the part of the
-brain vital for memory and
learning, when they had
access to running wheels. Ex-
ercise alters the molecular
mechanisms, which are im-
portant for learning and
memory.
So, turn off the T.V, video
games, etc., and get outside
with the kids to run, ride bicy-


cles, walk, or engage in what-
ever physical brain stimulat-
ing exercise you prefer.
Eating the right kinds of
fats, known as Omega-3s has
also been proven to make
your memory better and your
thinking faster. Good fats are
found in cold-water fish oils,
real butter (not margarine),
olive oil, flax seeds and flax oil.
These important fats have
been found to affect mental,
physical and emotional intel-
ligence. They influence both
the brain's structure and its
function. One reason is be-
cause our brains are made up
of more than 60 percent fat.
This is not belly fat, but the
kind of fat that forms your cell
membranes.
A Purdue study found that
boys with ADHD were defi-
cient in Omega-3 essential
fatty acids, evidence that.
these fats help the learning
process.
Another study at Purdue
University, on 100 boys be-
tween the ages of 6 and 12,
demonstrated that those with
the highest levels of Omega-3
fatty acids had the fewest
learning problems. A recent
study published in the Amer-
ican Journal of Clinical
Nutrition, showed that people
who eat oily fish or take fish
oil supplements score 13 per-
cent higher in IQ tests.
Another way to get smarter
is to exercise the brain.
Neurobiologist Larry Katz
tells us that neurobic work-
outs strengthen the connec-
tions between brain cells and
help us form new ones. When
exercising the brain, natural
growth factors (neurotro-
phins) are released. These
enhance the brain's level of
fitness. You exercise your
brain when you use it to think
hard, try to remember and to
solve problems.
Riddles and crossword
puzzles are some examples of
exercises for the brain. Mem-
orizing jokes and poems and


visualizing and creating pic-
tures in the mind while read-
ing can improve ability to
recall information faster.
Thinking about and learn-
ing new information on a
variety of subjects will keep
the brain fit, strengthening
and developing new connec-
tions. Taking trips to muse-
ums and reading books with
children gives them more to
think about and remember,
working the brain.
Stress, however, is detri-
mental to the brain, changing
both its structure and func-
tion. It can actually shrink the
hippocampus, the memory
center of the brain.
Researchers found that
stress hormones can block
retrieval of information
stored in the brain.
Therefore, it would make
sense to explain this to chil-
dren and give them some
stress-busting strategies, like
deep breathing. It is also
important to keep in mind
that if homework time has
reached the shouting and cry-
ing stage, it's best to regroup
and take a time out to calm
down. Effective learning can-
not happen under stress.
According to the latest sci-
entific research, exercising
the body and brain, eating the
right kinds of fats, and staying
relaxed and calm can make
kids (and adults) smarter.

BY ELAINE ALLEN-EMRICH
NORTH PORT ASSISTANT EDITOR

He's not only one of
America's Most Talented Kids,
he's an up-and-coming child
star who lives in North Port.
At 15, Tucker Barkley was
on TV performing in an
episode of PAXTV's "America's
Most Talented Kids." Barkley
and his parents taped it when
it originally aired, while they
were in Atlanta at the Mon-
sters of Hip Hop dance com-
petition, where he earned a
scholarship to perform in
NewYork.this summer.
Today Barkley's fans can
see his hip-hop break-danc-
ing routine filled with a lot of
tricks and tumbling. Hosted
by comedian/actor Dave
Coulier ("Full House"), "Aner-
ica's Most Talented Kids" is a
weekly series featuring seven
budding talents between the
ages of 6 and 15 who compete
for a chance at stardom. Con-
testants are judged by a panel
of three young, celebrity
judges, who are very familiar
with what it takes to capture
the showbiz spotlight.
The show's producers
selected the music Barkley
was asked to perform to, leav-
ing him with a little more than
one week to practice a rou-
tine, according to his mother,
Carla.
"I wasn't nervous," said the
ninth-grade homeschooler,
who competed -against six
other performers around the
county on the show, which
was filmed live in Los Angeles
on Dec. 17. "I've been on tele-
vision before."
Tucker was in a Rooms to
Go furniture commercial. He
has also been on TV on a
music count down show in
Miami.
Off to L.A.
When "America's Most
Talented Kids" saw Tucker's
tape, he was immediately
asked to be on the show's new
season, Carla said. He was
also preparing for a venture
with music impresario Lou
Pearlman, who helped launch
careers of several boy bands.
However, he has decided to
switch gears and move to Los
Angeles.
"We are moving where the
action is," she said. "We fly to
California where his agent
often books him on auditions
and performances. L.A. is
really big in the dance world.
It's time we move there, so he
can go on regular auditions."
Once again Tucker will
miss seeing himself on TV
from his North Port home.
Thursday he left for the city of
angels to begin training under
the direction of Shane Sparks,
who choreographed the hip-
hop movie "You Got Served."
Sparks will lead a May 25
performance where he will
showcase talented dancers at
the Key Club in Los Angeles.


Following the May perfor-
mance, Barkley will prepare
to enhance his skills as an
assistant to world-renowned
choreographer Brian Free-
man, who taught Brittany
Spears, Mya and N'SYNC.
Barkley will help him with
warm ups and show routines
to the 14- to 17-year-olds at
the dance intensive Broad-
way Dance Center. He will
also take dance lessons from
Freeman.
When he's not in LA or
preparing for New York,


Barkley trains at a dance stu-
dio in Cape Coral and also in
Miami.
Carla Barkley, who owned
a studio for 22 years in Texas,
said her son grew up in her
dance studio.
By the time he was 7,
Tucker won his first national
title. He has also won medals
at U.S. and World Hip-Hop
championships.

Running greatness hidden within lives

J.J. Andrews
BACK OF THE PACK


of retirees, mothers


I


When friends found out I
was moving to Venice, one
question kept rearing it's ugly
head.
"Why? Aren't they all really
old down there?"
Turns out, there are quite
a few older folks living in
Venice, and to my relief, quite
a few folks closer to my age.
The most surprising sur-
prise has come in how talent-
ed Venice's area runners are.
Back of the Pack's twice week-
ly morning runs from down-
town Venice have me chasing
people up to 40 years older
than me and a mother of two
who spends 10 hours a day
running Geraldi's restaurant
with her husband.
And the running greatness
of these four individuals goes
nearly unnoticed, hidden be-
hind the lives of retirees and
parents: Jim Eagleston, 72,
Mickey Johnson, 66, Tuula
Pakula, 55, and Linda Sul-
livan, 39.
Tuula finished the Tampa
half-marathon two months
ago in 2 hours, 8 minutes -
that's 9 minutes, 43 seconds,
per mile for 13.1 miles. On
Monday, she ran in the Bos-
ton Marathon, which re-
quired a marathon entry
qualifying time of 4 hours,
5 minutes, in her age group.
According to the Boston
Marathon online entry list,
Tuula is the only South
County resident who ran
Monday, and one of only 20
in the entire county to qualify
(the other 19 listed Sarasota
city). Our Town's early dead-
lines prevented me from
checking in with Tuula to see
how she did Monday, but
look to next week's column
and find out.
As for Jim, Mickey and
Linda, they helped give Ven-
ice an impressive showing at

the Thunder Run 3.1-mile
race April 9 with a pair of firsts
and a second in their age
groups. At 72 years old, Jim
won his age group of 70-plus
in 24 minutes, 52 seconds,
Mickey won the 65-plus in
24.50, and Linda running
her first road race in more
than a year was second in
the 35-39 group with
a 23.06, and fourth overall
among all females.
Now I understand why I
struggle to keep up with these
folks every Wednesday and
Friday morning.
Why we run
There's a different story
behind why Jim, Mickey and
Linda each got into running.
Jim was stationed overseas
with the Air Force during the
Vietnam War, and his after-
noon runs became a routine
that took his mind off of what
was going on around him.
He's kept running ever since
and attributes his fitness to
helping deal with heart prob-
lems several years ago.
For Linda, who has two
children, 7 and 12 years old,
she began working out five
years ago to try and get back
into shape. She has gradually
become hooked on running,
after starting out with weights
and swimming.
Out of all three, Mickey
started running the latest in
life at 48 years old. He was
overweight and wanted to
drop a few pounds.
"I was 49 before I ran my
first race," Mickey said. "It was
a 10K (6.2 miles), and I didn't
even know how far that was."
Though they all had their


to pavement year after year.
own reasons for starting,
competition and camarad-
erie keep them coming
back.
"I just enjoy it, coming out
here with everyone, running
around," Linda said. "I was
thinking, 'There's gotta be
other runners out here.' I was
so glad to see this start
(Venice morning runs)."
Jim also points to the social
aspect and all those warm
feelings.
The 72-year-old isn't afraid
to admit he also likes the
competition. I know from
experience, Jim has no prob-
lem holding an 8:45 or faster
pace for 5 miles while also
carrying on a conversation
that leaves me gasping for
air.
"I'm a competitive per-
son," Jim said. "rven when
you start out, from the very


beginning, you're running
against yourself."
Retirement isn't the end of
being competitive, as Mickey
pointed out. Road races have
sliding scales for awards -
age groups.
So while he runs against
everyone in a road race,
Mickey knows he can prove
he's the best within his age
group while also beating a
few young upstarts like me.
"What else can we do,
where can we go at 66 and 72
and still compete against
world class athletes," Mickey
said. "It feels pretty good."

Q 1 Neither vulnerable, you hold:
6AK4 v 10932 o Q5 .Q752

Partner opens the bidding with one
heart. What do you respond?
A If you play limit raises, by all
means jump to three hearts. If not,
start by bidding two clubs, then raise
hearts at your next turn.
Q 2 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
4J76 coVoid 0 KQ9865 49853

The bidding has proceeded:
NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST
16 Dbl ?
A Obviously, the choice is between
bidding diamonds or raising spades.
Even if you play four-card majors,
an opening one-spade bid usually
shows a five-card suit. Your hand is
likely to be of more use to partner
than partner's is to you raise to
two spades, but it is a close decision.
Q 3 Neither vulnerable, as South
you hold:
4943 KJ 10 9 09763 94

Partner opens the bidding with two no
trump (20-22). What action do you
take?
A Your intermediates just make this
hand worth a bid. However, do not
raise to three no trump. Should part-
ner have four hearts, your hand will
almost certainly play better in the
suit contract. Check for a major suit
with a Stayman three-club bid.
Q 4 Neither vulnerable, you hold:


4Void vAKQJ854 OAJ9 #A87

Your left-hand opponent's one-spade
asking bid is passed round to you.
What action do you take?

A Your hand is too strong for any
bid (except, perhaps, a jump to six
hearts). The way to show your power
is to start with a takeout double and
then jump in hearts at your next turn.
Q 5 Neither vulnerable, you hold:
*Void vA10764 o A1053 &AQ54

Your right-hand opponent opens the
bidding with one diamond. What
action do you take?
A Unlike the previous problem, you
have neither the strength nor the dis-
tribution to make a takeout double.
All you can do for the moment is
make a simple overcall of one heart
and see how the auction develops.
Q 6 Both vulnerable, as South you
hold:
*54 4 A5 0 AJ862 *KJ53
The bidding has proceeded:
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST
10 Pass 16 Pass
?
What do you bid now?

A We know there are those who
would rebid one no trump but, in the
words of Samuel Goldwyn, include
us out. We see no reason not to
describe our holding as best we can.
Bid two clubs.

weather heats up because
heatstroke is a very real prob-

This is especially true
when animals are left in a car
on a hot day (even with the
windows cracked), or left
anywhere outside without

car windows open, the inter-

watch for the warning signs
including excessive salivation
and panting, fast pulse rate,
vomiting and high body
temperature. Heatstroke can
cause brain damage and
death.
If you notice that your pet
exhibits any of- these symp-
toms, act quickly by immers-
ing the animal in cool water,
pouring cool water over
them, or placing ice packs on
their head. Once the animal
cools off, seek medical treat-
ment from a veterinarian
immediately.
Prevention is the best
treatment so remember these
summer safety rules:


1. NEVER take your pet
with you in the car if you
plan to leave them unat-
tended for ANY length of
time. Even just a moment or
two while you run into a
store can be extremely dan-
gerous.
2. If your pet is left outside
on warm days, provide pro-
tection from the sun and
access to plenty of fresh
cool drinking water. Stren-
uous activity and excitement
should also be avoided on
warm days.
3. When traveling, carry
fresh, cool water with you
and give your pet small
amounts frequently.

BANDANA fomrn page IlB


between the crowd and the
band because of his excellent
showmanship. However, Ger-
ace is not the only talented
vocalist in the band. Every
member of the band has their
own special numbers to sing.
. After 15 years, some stories
have made Bandana infa-
mous band.
One story involved an old
club on Englewood Beach.
The band was supposed to
play at Calico Jack's one week-


end. In advance, the band
usually would set up on
Thursday, but this particular
day time wouldn't allow it.
On Friday morning Calico
Jacks was destroyed when a
liquor closet caught fire.
Bandana was still on the mar-
quee outside while the build-
ing was ablaze.
"That's when we were dub-
bed the hottest band in
town," Gerace recalled. "I
thanked God because we


could've lost everything in-
cluding my trailer."
Recently, when Bandana
played with Gary Lewis and
the Playboys at the Venice
Little Theater locals gave
Bandana two standing ova-
tions. The next day dee jays
from a local radio station
claimed Lewis had been out-
performed.
Del Ray's favorite story
involves a new pair of boots
Gerace was sporting one


night at a show. Trotting
around proudly, Gerace man-
aged to trip over a curb and
fall flat on his face. -
"I guess you had to be
there," Del Ray said.
The Venice area changed
since Bandana formed. A slip
in the demand for live music
has diminished the number
of clubs in the area, but
Bandana still performs fre-
quently. Younger crowds are
always welcome to come out


and dance to them.
"We've evolved over the
point to where we were very
popular, but we had to start
playing down in Fort Myers,"
Gerace said. "There used to
be a lot of places to play in
Venice."
Bandana has performed at
benefit shows for the Dis-
abled American Veterans
Chapter 101, The American
Cancer Society and the
D.A.R.E. program.


Most recently, Bandana
played a benefit show for St.
Francis Animal Shelter. The
band likes doing benefits, but
admits that it's hard work.
Both shows were held at the,
Disabled American Veterans
building.
"Maybe we can provide
them with things they don't
get from the government,"
Gerace said.
Bandana performs April 23
at the DAV

If you're an American war veteran or wish to
pay tribute to veterans, we invite you to join
us at Bon Secours Place for a special event


adding a special dimension to
the dynamic chorus.
This concert serves the
group's mission to pass on
skills and "musical fire" to the
younger generation by featur-
ing LeVoci diVenezia in selec-
tions from their current
repertoire. Both choirs join
forces to build the "Credo!"
program around excerpts
from Randall Thompson's
powerful "Testament of
Freedom," which sets writ-
ings of Thomas Jefferson to
music.


Other selections celebrat-
ing the spirit of our nation
with songs by American com-
posers include Irving Berlin's
"Give Me Your Tired, Your
Poor" arranged by Roy Ring-
wald and Stepphen Paulus'
"Hymn for America."
Tickets are $15 or $5 for
students. They are available at
the door or by calling Don
Walker at 496-4977.

If you think Venice is for the
birds, you are right. Members
of the Venice Audubon
Society make sure feathered
creatures can safely nurture
their young at the South
Venice rookery located be-
hind the Robert L. Anderson
Administration Building.
David Evans coordinates
volunteers who meet and
greet visitors at the Nature
Center and the rookery. The
center is usually open Mon-
day through Friday from 9
a.m. to 4 p.m. unless the
group can't get a volunteer for
the time.
Volunteers like Gail Pigeon,
Roberta Williams, Phyllis
Courter, Joan Klein, Marian
Shern and Guenn
Winterbottom take their work
at the center and the rookery
seriously and invite you to
join their ranks. Call 496-8984
to volunteer.
Right now baby herons fill
the nests at the rookery and
it's fun watching them. Charlie
Sample had a telescope
focused on a tower at the
building where an owl family
evicted some osprey. The
baby horned owls enjoyed
their vantage point and
seemed to be guarding the
South Venice location.
The Venice Audubon Soci-
ety is one of the top groups in
the state. Dan Kixmiller is
president and Nancy White is
membership chair. To join the
group, call 484-0368.

The Venice. Lions Club is
the pride of Venice. The group
recently helped manage the
downtown Easter egg hunt.
Members like Bev Kruger,
Carol Steenson and Robert
Burtwell passed out eggs and
prizes.
Bryan Lockyear spent
weeks collecting sharks' teeth
for the annual Sharks Tooth
Festival. Service is the club's
purpose.

One of the popular places
in town on Saturday morn-
ings is the Farmer's Market in
Centennial Park. Merchants
sell vegetables, fruit, seafood,
fresh flowers and herbs. Some
days the German Bakery sells
their delicious raisin bread.
The newest addition to the
market is the Little Donut
Shop on Wheels where you
can buy a half a dozen dough-
nuts and a cup of coffee for
only $2.
Maryann McNutt told me
recently when her daughter,
Michaela, wakes up on
Saturday mornings her first
words are, "Let's go to the
market, mom."

If you are looking for enter-
tainment to warm your heart,
get tickets for "I Do, I Do"
playing at the Venice Little
Theatre. Steve and Diane
Dawson fill the stage with
music and love and guarantee
a feeling like one of the popu-
lar songs from the show, "My
SCup Runneth Over With
Love." Call 488-1115 for tick-
ets.

The special person of this
week is David Evans. This
nice man spends hours mak-
ing sure the south Venice
Nature Center and rookery
are staffed and available for
visitors. He also takes time to
serve wine and cheese to
members and help them feel
appreciated at the annual
party.
David Evans is one of the
members of the Venice Area
Audubon Society who helps
make Venice special.


Lions Club member Robert Burtwell shows
little Katie Krohn the way to blow a perfect
bubble.
