DOH: gasoline-laced water not a threat


State notification letters alert residents of
environmental cleanup in Venice, Englewood
and Sarasota cities.

NEWS EDITOR


-Nearly 1,000 Florida resi-
dents will find out within the
next couple of days that
petroleum has contaminated
ground water in their neigh-
borhood, but the state says
the situation does not pose a
threat to their health.

BY JJ. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

City planners have spent
the last five months gathering
and recording opinions about
what Venice should look like
during the next two decades.
Now comes the hard part.
They have to take those opin-
ions, see if those desires can
become reality and resolve
conflicting desires.
. And deal with a big contra-
dictidon environmental con-
servation with less density.

sent the letters out Friday as
notification of 217 environ-
mental cleanup sites across
the state. Three of those loca-
tions are in Sarasota County,
and all involve underground
gas tanks in Englewood,
Sarasota andVenice.
The one in Englewood is
the only local spot that is still
an active gas station.
However, the owner said
Friday the business had been
sold and would no longer be a
gas station after June 1.
Both the DEP letters and
Sarasota County officials in
charge of the cleanup


emphasize current drinking
water supplies are not at risk.
Area water wells have been
sampled and are not contam-
inated, according to the
county health department.
"Right now, they're not
impacting any environmen-
tal well supplies," said John
Hickey, professional engineer
with Sarasota County who'll
direct the cleanup effort. "The
ground water (at the site) is:
contaminated,- but is not
affecting anyone directly."
Venice residents are on a
city water system.
Demolition delay?
The long-vacant gas sta-
tion in Venice has been in the
cleanup phase since March
2004. Environmental workers


are conducting air sparging
and soil vapor extraction with
a large, constantly humming
machine that injects oxygen
,into the polluted water, forc-
ing out gas vapors, and then
vacuums it out.
This process is expected to
last at least another year.
DEP is picking up all or
most of the costs to remove
these contaminants, Hickey
said.
"The (gas) plume has been
significantly reduced by the
treatment system," Hickey
said.

Good morning, Gondolier
Sun subscriber,
MARSHA ROBBINS


On any given day- espe-
cially on weekends you
can sit out on Bob and,
Donna Rugen's modest
porch along Roberts Bay at
Harbor Lights Mobile Home
Park and watch boats c6me
to a screeching halt once
they reach .the edge of the
no-wake zone separating
the canal from bay waters.
The wake caused by
marine activity is destruc-
tive, says Rugen, pointing to
a damaged heron rookery
less than 100 feet away.
Incoming boats slow
down at the last second as
they draw near the no-wake
zone. Outgoing boaters
push the throttle to full
speed ahead once they inch
past the same no-wake sign.
Even a law enforcement
boat was seen doing it.
It's pretty much the way
boaters boat.
Rugen wants the county
to extend the no-wake zone
out further, crack down on
speeding boaters and gener-

ally encourage boaters to be
more considerate in order to
lessen the impact on his
waterfront property and the
nearby rookery.
This week he took his
complaint directly to the
Board of Sarasota County.
Commissioners. Rugen sent
a letter requesting the no-
wake zone be extended out
another hundred feet past
his property (from Marker 8
to Marker 9), and past a
heron rookery that Rugen
says was seriously damaged
by boat wakes April 10.-
Rugen spoke with two
members of BOCC.
"They were both sympa-
thetic and wanted more
information," said Rugen, a
former judge in upstate New
York. "They told me to get
pictures of the rookery. But
they also told me not to hold
my breath. Even if we are
successful at getting the sign
moved, we still have to
worry about enforcement.
"Part of the mangrove fell
into the water last week
because of the turmoil boats
have caused."


"Even if we are success-
ful at getting the (no-
wake zone) sign moved,
we still have to worry
about enforcement."
Bob Ruger
resident c
Harbor Light
Mobile Home Par

At the very least, Rugen
would like to see more no-
wake signs. The single no-
wake zone sign is old and
hard to see, he said.
Experiment
Ten years ago Chuck
Listowski, executive director
of West Coast Inland
Navigation District, moved
the no-wake sign further out
to the exact spot Rugen is
proposing. It was an experi-
ment, he said, to see if it
would lessen impacts on the
area.
But law enforcement
moved the sign back,
Listowski said, because it
posed problems in enforce-
ment tickets issued to
boaters in the experimental

wide, funnel-like entrance

property.
Two years ago Rugen
was forced to remove a sail
boat he had moored on the
edge of .his property
because the wave action
broke its mast.
But that isn't likely to help
Rugen's case, according to
Mike Solum, environmental
specialist for the county's
Department of Natural
Resources.

looks


to slow


growth

BY WARREN RICHARDSON '
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR
Preparing to embark on
the first update of their com-
prehensive plan in seven
years, Sarasota County corn-
missioners expressed con-
cerns about the rapid rate of
growth, particularly in South
County.
And, while they didn't use
the word moratoriumm" -
unlike North
Port, which
may act next
week to limit
the issuance of
building per-
mits for up to
18 months -
commissicon-
ers indicated
they thought STAUB
some breath-
ing room was necessary-.
"I don't know if we're at the
tipping point or if we've
passed it, but I can't fathom
growth continuing at the pace
it is now," said commissioner
Shannon Staub. "Part of me
.wants' to say 'Whoa, take a
breath.' I'm not saving mora-
torium, but we need to see if
we're outstripping ourselves."
"Our future land use map
is the picture and it frightens
me to think how we're going
to implement the infrastruc-
ture," commissioner Jon
Thaxton said. "Growth is the
No. 1 issue and we need to
take a breath."'
Glaring deficiency
Thursday's broad discus-
sion about the current growth
rate came during a board
workshop to discuss amend-
ments to the comp plan aris-
ing out of an appraisal and
evaluation process last year.
The county's planning
commission will begin hear-
ings May 11 to consider pro-
posed amendments coming
from last year's process and a
series of public workshops
earlier this year.

Area students who lend a hand honored


Celebrating its 25th anniversary, PALS program
recognizes Venice youngsters for reaching out.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

Adults often talk about giv-
ing back to the community.
Meet three students who are
getting a head start.
Venice area youths were
recognized Thursday for
reaching out in their schools
and community to help oth-
ers. Tommasina Miller,
Elizabeth Buckeye and Alex
Dorsett were selected from
nominees, districtwide as
Outstanding Youth Volun-
teers.
They were honored by
PALs leaders and district dig-
nitaries, and presented with
an engraved ruby paper-
weight April 21 at Michael's
on East in Sarasota.
In all, six students were,
recognized by the district's
PALS school volunteer pro-
gram; two in each of three
grade levels (high' school,
middle and elementary).
Other volunteers honored
were: Jimmy Newton (a
home-schooled student
nominated by Englewood
elementary), Jeffery Schmidt
(Pine View High), and Melissa
Edwards (Gulf Gate
Elementary).
Tommasina Miller
Tommasina Miller is a
youthful "mover and shaker."
A senior at Venice High, Miller
attends school full time, then
spends another 20 hours per
week volunteering on cam-
pus and in the community.
"Tommasina is by far the
most involved student volun-
teer among our high school
students," said principal
Candace Millington. "Her
academic teachers and facul-
ty club sponsors rave about


her talents as a student and
leader.
"She always exhibits a high
level of maturity and respon-
sibility and tackles every pro-
ject with an abundance of
energy and commitment to
excellence. Tommasina is a
rare individual who richly
deserves this recognition."
A volunteer for the past
four years, Miller logged 800
volunteer hours in the past 18
months.
Miller is a member of the
Honors Academy and ranks
among the top 5 percent of
her graduating class. She
serves as treasurer for the
school's National Honor
Society.
She is an active member of
the Kiwanis-sponsored Key
Club as its treasurer, and Link
Crew mentor group, which
orients and mentors newVHS
students. She also serves as a
Mu Alpha Theta math tutor
for underclassmen.
Miller was honored by her
fellow classmates by being
selected class president dur-
ing her sophomore and
junior years. She also served
as a student government sen-
ator for two years.
Miller is a foster mother for
young abandoned kittens for
the Saint Francis Animal
Shelter.
She also helped arrange for
the city to record .student
opinions on the Envision
Venice planning process.
Alex Dorsett
Alex Dorsett, a sixth-grader
at Laurel Nokomis School,
logged 360 hours of volunteer
service in the last 18 months.
For the past four years
Dorsett averaged five hours of
weekly volunteer service.

Outstanding Youth Volunteer Tommasina Miller, a senior at
Venice High School, is pictured with Superintendent Gary
Norris. Miller volunteers 20 hours per week after school.


He follows in his grandfa-
ther's footsteps. Richard Clark

the district as an outstanding
senior volunteer. Clark
passed away three weeks ago.
"Alex is a go-getter and has
given his time to make Laurel
Nokomis School a better
place," said Gloria Pino, an
educator at LNS.
During his years in die gift-
ed program Dorsett spent
hours, making props for
school plays and for the
WLNN news show. He can be
found before and after school
helping teachers on a myriad
of projects always' with a
smile on his face, say his
teachers.
Dorsett was awarded out-
standing fund-raiser for LNS
two years in a row.
He is an active member of
the school service project,
where he helped organize a
Campus Clean-Up and made,
ribbons to honor school
employees who are veterans.
He is a member of the Boy
Scouts and spends time help-
ing younger children on the
soccer fields.
Elizabeth Buckeye
Elizabeth Buckeye is an
eighth-grader at. Venice
Middle School. A volunteer
for two and a half years,
Buckeye maintains high
grades and participates in
many organizations on cam-
pus, including the National
Junior Honor Society,
Builders Club, band, FFA, 4-
H, Welcome Everybody,
Buddies, and PALS.
"Elizabeth has exceeded
my expectations by leaps and
bounds," said Elizabeth
Ouellette, VMS teacher and
club advisor.

25th anniversary
PALS is a school volunteer
program designed to increase
community involvement
through workshops for teach-
ers and volunteer coordina-


tors, networking with com-
munity groups and recruit-
ment for special programs. '
The PALS program recruits
groups churches, busi-
nesses, sororities, fraternities
and individuals for
involvement in the programs.
Venice Elementary served
as one of the three original
pilot schools, along with
Fruitville and AltaVista, in thp
first PALS program 25 years
ago.
PALS was established in
1979 with $15,000 grant from
the Selby Foundatioi,
cosponsored by United First
Federal Savings and Loan iM
coalition with the Sarasota
County School District.
In 1982 P.ALS became a
permanent fixture in the dis-
trict.

help revise Venice's compre-

-t Thursday was the final ses-

issues.
One of her tasks is to figure
out how to protect the envi-
ronment, one of the public's
-top requests, while also reduc-
jng heights of buildings and
-restricting density, another
top priority. Citizens listed
lower density and shorter
buildings as the best way to
protectt the environment.
Unfortunately,, Ebaugh
said, both of those develop-
lment concepts actually eat up
Jand and green space by caus-
mg urban sprawl.
People, forget that down-
town Venice and some of the
area's oldest districts are the
.most dense residential neigh-
borhoods within city limits.

displayed around the city for
nearly a year. Permits expire
next Saturday, and Lynn
Moseley ofVAC will ask coui-
cil members to let the pigs
stay out for another full year.
"This has been such a pop-
ular tourist attraction," wrote
Marilyn LaBallister, adminis-
trator ofVAC, in her extension
request.


City Manager Marty Black
declined to give his opinion
and will not provide council
members with a recommen-
dation, he said in a Friday
interview.
Lack of artistic knowledge
is Black's main reason for not
making his voice heard,
according to him. This was
one reason why the city man-
ager asked to create a Public
Art Committee, composed of
art experts, but council mem-
bers did not see the need and'
removed it from their strate-
gic plan last week.
Black would admit he's
against making the pigs a per-


manent fixture in the city and
letting them become some
sort of city mascot.
When VAC asked for the
extension, the city manager
suggested the pigs be dis-
played in an alternate loca-
tion, like the former chamber
of commerce building next to
the Hatchett Creek Bridge. He
believes this could be a
tourist draw once the build-
ing is renovated.
:'One of the main concerns
we have, we have had some
::degradation of city grass and
landscape areas around the
pigs," Black said. "One of the
things I would ask council for

and take a walk," Ebaugh
said. "They see it almost as
more of an open park, and
they don't like strip-style
shopping centers in other
parts of the city. ... Unfortu-
nately, their fears about
growth and development
may lead to the kind of com-
munity they don't want."


Delightful and quaint
Venice Gondolier Sun esti-
mates had about 100 people
casting votes Thursday night
at the priorities meeting.
Unofficial counts by the
newspaper had the top prior-
ity the topic of historic preser-
vation. There were 63 votes
supporting tax money spent


for historic preservation, as
long as costs remained "with-
in reason."
The issue of Northern,
Mediterranean architectural
style drew 60 responses, with
people saying they like the
style but do not want all the
buildings to look the same.
Too many of the same type of


is clear remediation of those
areas around the pigs."
Council approval is need-
ed to grant a waiver of city
codes that prevent display of
these pigs in the public right
of way.
Sewage park
The master plan for the

tentatively named Tramonto

er, is up for approval Tuesday.

stores was listed as the No. 1
reason people do not shop
downtown, bringing in 53
votes.
A combined response of
delightful and quaint was list-
ed as downtown's major
strength, bringing in 52 votes.
There also were 50 votes in
favor of setting aside a per-
centage of developments for
affordable housing.'
Ebaugh characterized the
results as reaffirming nearly
everything the public has
already asked for. Tops
among those requests
include things like connectiv-
it., preserving Venice's small-
town look, access between
neighborhoods and walkabil-
ity.
"I think people know
things are changing, but they
do not want the changes to
change the character of the
community," Ebaugh said.
"Even though things change,
the essence that makes up
our community has to
remain constant. That's
something that has been
repeated time and time
again."
More input
Public input is not fin-
ished. Envision Venice still
has a couple more survey
meetings with Venice High


There have been sharply
divided opinions on the pro-
posal. Some residents want
more of a nature preserve
park, while others support
the proposed 255 paved park-
ing spots and three 60-foot-
diameter picnic shelters with
a small concert stage.
No major design changes
have been made from what
the planning commission
and Venice Parks and
Recreation Board approved in
February.,, Both of those
boards, however, opposed the
name Tramonto Vista Park.
Please see PIGS, 4A


School students on these
issues, and regional govern-
mental partners also have a
say in the city's comprehen-
sive plan, according to
Ebaugh.
A public open house is ten-
tatively scheduled for May 12
to review initial findings and
attempt to identify trends,
with a goal of presenting a
draft critical issues report to
planning commission May
17. The report then must gp
city council and with that
stamp of approval, city plan-
ners will use that information
to write the Evaluation
Appraisal, Report to meet
state requirements.
Ebaugh hopes to have a
two-day public workshop in
June so residents can inspect
what is being written. The
EAR report must be submit-
ted to the state by Sept. 1.
So between now and then,
she and the rest of Venice's
planning department have to
crunch the numbers and see
what can be done.
"Now we start analyzing
and digesting the informa-
tion we've received from the

PIGS from,


Strongly opposing views
about the park's future means
council members will have to
decide what the area will
eventually look like, Black
said.
"So we've got these two
conflicting groups coming
together on the designs of this
park," Black said. "(Council
members) have got to provide
us with the policy direction
on how they want us to mod-
ify or move forward with the
project."
Projected cost of the park'
is $2.6 million. High-priced
items include the 255 parking
spots at $860,000, open-air
plaza at $514,000, and three
picnic pavilions at $416,000.
Plans are to have bath-
rooms at the north and south
ends, with the south restroom
serving Paw Park. A pair of
beach access points would be
added, along with walking
.trails and an observation
deck.
The park's 7 acres of land
were.bought by the city in
2004 from Venice Municipal
Airport for $213,661, after
being rented for years when
the sewage plant was in oper-
ation. Total park area will be
19 acres once the reclaimed
water storage pond is includ-
ed.
Other items
Also on Tuesday's agenda:
Beach project update -
Jacqueline Keiser of the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers will
lead a presentation detailing
the upcoming beach renour-
ishment project. The restock-
ing of 900,000 cubic yards of
sand along 3.2 miles of Venice
Beach should begin with the
next couple of weeks and
conclude in early August,
weather permitting.
Volunteer awards At
least 50 people are listed to

Sarasota considers workforce housing overlay district


The new district would be part of the affordable
housing equation, along with existing housing
programs and units added under the 2050 plan.


WWARRE MCHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

Given marching orders in
January to create a program
that awarded density bonus-
es to developers who build
affordable housing, Sarasota
County staff will bring a pro-
posal to commissioners on
Wednesday to create a work-
force housing overlay district.
Only a handful of jurisdic-
tions across the country use
overlay districts as a device to
create increased units of
-affordable housing, which are
generally defined as housing
for a family of four with a
median' income between
$44,700 and $55,900.
According to Larry Arnold,
the county's manager of com-
.munity development, the
overlay districts work by
maintaining the housing


density in the original district.
Developers, however, can
earn increased densities if
they utilize the overlay district
by meeting the criteria for
approval.
Examining areas of the
country that have employed
such overlay districts, Arnold
found they all contain similar
criteria:
A threshold amount
before a project can be con-
sidered for 'the overlay dis-
trict.
A minimum percentage
of affordable units.
Benefits and incentives to
the developers to construct
the units.
Alternatives to meeting
the program requirements,
such as payments in 'place of
construction or construction
of affordable units at another
site.


A minimum time period
for which the units must
remain affordable.
The criteria Arnold is sug-
gesting for Sarasota County
include a threshold amount
of 20 units, of which 15 to 17
percent must be affordable. A
developer meeting the crite-
ria, could obtain a density
bonus of 25 percent, which
means that if the underlying
density were 8 units per acre,
the developer would be
allowed the right to build two
extra units.
Other incentives in the
proposed ordinance would
allow relief from certain pro-
visions of the county's zoning
ordinance and land develop-
ment regulations. Arnold did
not elaborate on what that
relief would be but expects to
have that for commissioners
soon.
In a memo to commission-
ers explaining the proposal,
Arnold wrote that the most
effective programs "allow
flexibility in the ways in how


requirements are met with a
variety of incentives."
According to Wendy
Thomas, a senior county
planner assigned to the
Community Development
program, the rapidly increas-
ing market prices in Sarasota
County are making it more
difficult for working families
such as policemen, teachers
and nurses to afford housing
in Sarasota County.
Looking at the housing
market in the county since
2000 and making projections
based upon the data, Thomas
found that the market for
homes priced from $88,000 to
$158,000 would decline from
36 percent in 2000 to just 9
percent in 2007. Likewise,
homes priced at more than
$251,000 will increase from 18
percent in 2000 to 51 percent,
in 2007.
"We're seeing a gap
between what people can
afford and market prices,"
Thomas told commissioners
during a January workshop


on the affordable housing
issue. "That gap will contin-
ue."
Thomas said a typical fam-
ily of four in Sarasota County
with an annual income of
$45,000 could afford a
monthly mortgage payment
of $1,150, but the $150,000
home they could previously
afford, now costs $200,000,
which was beyond their abili-
ty to buy.
The problem becomes
critical, Arnold notes, in the
context of Suncoast Work-
force Board estimates that a
workforce shortage of 15,000
employees will exist by 2010.
To meet the economic
demand for workers in the
region, the Shimberg Center
for Affordable Housing at the
University of Florida esti-
mates that Sarasota County
will need 12,000 additional
affordable housing units by
2015.
That need could be met
through existing programs
that anticipate adding


between 4,539 and 8,348
units between now and 2015.
Another 7,805 to 8,299 units
could be created through the
overlay district, the county's
2050 program and housing
on the edge of the urban area.
Commissioners will meet
in regular session beginning
at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the
Robert L. Anderson Admin-
istration Center, 4000 South
Tamiami Trail, Venice, and at
9 a.m. Wednesday in
Commission Chambers in
the County Administration
Center, 1660 Ringling Blvd.,
Sarasota.
In addition, Access
Sarasota Channel 19 will
carry the meeting live in its.
entirety for viewing by
Sarasota County residents
and will repeat the broadcast
throughout the week. A pro-
gram schedule is available on
the county's Web site

ate television schedule.

of the Adoption of the Osprey
Works Revitalization Plan took place
services almost six years ago. It pro-
vides the framework for the
beenn preservation, revitalization
ian 10 and long-term development
.S. 41/ of the area. Several projects
Man- Kamiya and Grogg are ready to
-ased. identify include:


*- Sidewalks on U.S. 41
through the Village center and
along Bay Street and Old
Venice Road.
Bus stop bays.
Synchronized traffic lights
at Bay Street and Bay Acres
Road on U.S. 41, opposite the
Wal-Mart SuperCenter under
construction.
Turn lanes and median
closings north of Bay Street on
41, and alternatives to widen-
ing41.
Scheduling remains "tick-
lish," he added. That's because
the Florida Department of
Transportation manages U.S.
41.


Killer Komer
The proposed Washington
Avenue Streetscape project
also will be discussed. Part of
the 1999 Revitalization Plan, it
called for developing a pedes-
trian-friendly commercial dis-
trict to replace the pattern of
strip commercial develop-
ment along 41.
Although the principal con-
cerns of Kamiya and Grogg at
Monday's meeting will be
about the county's access
management plan, he antici-
pates that residents will
demand an update on "Killer
Komer" the community's
name for the intersection of


U.S. 41; Blackburn Point and
OldVenice Roads -whichhas
stirred the community since
early 2003.
When Kamiya appeared at
the Feb. 28 meeting of the
committee, he was shouted at
by several residents. One
demanded, "Do we have to get
more people killed before you
people do anything about
this?"
Two people were killed in a
two-car collision at the inter-
section last year. Traffic studies
by the county Office of Traffic
and Engineering noted 165
crashes involving 344 vehicles
on U.S. 41 between Bay Street


south to the intersection dur-
ing a four-year period.
Kamiya plans to tell the
committee that the county
remains on schedule for con-
struction of light poles and
traffic signals. He expects con-
struction to begin in August
and be completed in October.
He said that left-turn
options will be provided for
vehicles moving east on
Blackburn Point Road, and
turning left onto 41. Vehicles,
on Old Venice Road moving
west will be able to turn right,
or southbound, onto the high-
way. No such signals now
exist.

ZONE from page lA
"State law is specific about
no- wake zones," Solum said.
"Upland property damage is
specifically excluded from the
reasons why the county may
put in a no-wake zone."
What complicates part of
Rugen's complaint is the fed-
eral government actually
owns a slice of waterfront
property all along Harbor
Lights. Technically, some of
the back yards and almost all
of the pilings drilled by resi-
dents to moor their boats are
on federal property and were
not approved by the Army
Corps of Engineers.
"The Army Corps doesn't
like people to mess with fed-
.eral intracoastal waters. And
they don't take changes to no-
wake zones lightly," Solum
.aid.:

Bridges and ramps
Rugen hopes to tag onto
the end of a process under-
way to extend other no-wake
'zones.
County and state officials
plan to extend the zones in
four areas, including two in
Venice. The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Commission held its
last public hearing at the
Selby Library on March 27
regarding the no-wake-zone
.extensions.
SBOCC already signed off
on the extensions, and the
Fish and Wildlife Commis-
sion has only to OK the deal
.to make it official. That is
expected to happen within a
month, Solum said.
"We started this process to
get new wake zones in 2001,"
'said Solum. "The country was
first required to pass an ordi-
nance, which the BOCC
approved 'on Nov. 27, 2001.
Then it went to the state for
review and public hearings.
This is the final rule-making
phase. We're waiting for the
state to adopt the county
ordinance to make it a state
rule," Solum said.

Ditch will be extended.
- The zone currently pro-
tecting fuel docks at the end
of Roberts Bay will be extend-
ed another 700 feet south past
the public boat ramp (which
technically is not in a no-
wake zone) at the train depot,'
and 'beyond the Venice
Avenue Bridge.
A 300-foot extension south
of Circus Bridge, at the south-
ern end of the Venice Ditch, is
recommended to protect the
bridge and fuel dock in that
area.
The commission also rec-
ommends the establishment
of two new no-wake zones,
one encompassing the Mana-
sota Key. bridge and boat
ramp, and one covering a
300-foot area surrounding
the Siesta Drive Bridge in
Sarasota.
"Right now, some of. the
bridges are in no-wake zones,


A boat entering the intracoastal waterway from Roberts Bay
passes through the no-wake zone, making its way through the
wakes of another boat that had just exited.


and some aren't," Solum said.
"Boaters get confused about
which ones are in no-wake
zones and tend to drive right
through all of them at a high
rate. This will bring consis-


tency. All of the intracoastal
bridges will be considered
no-wake zones."
There also have been fatal-
ities in these zones, Solum
said.


"The Siesta Key bridge area
is downright dangerous,"
Solum said. "Half the prob-
lem is boats going by as other
boats are fueling and rocking.
We thought the best solution
was to make them all the
same slow down for all
bridges and boat ramps."
Meanwhile, a 400-foot
dock approved last year at
Fisherman's Wharf, near the
Hatchett Creek Bridge, has
Rugen and other Harbor
Lights citizens concerned
about the increased traffic it's
expected to generate, and the
impact that will have on the
rookery.
"The Blue and White
Heron come right up into our
back yard. They drink out of
our bird feeder," he said. "I
just hope they're still around
in the future."

The public hearings are
expected to last through June.
While staff had planned for
a discussion with the board
about a broad range of issues
such as transportation, the
environment and the policies
dealing with the provision of
services, commissioners im-
mediately indicated their
desire to talk in wider terms.
"I did a word search, actu-
ally reading the plan, and the
word 'sustainability' does not
appear in our comp plan,"
Thaxton said. "It's a glaring
deficiency not to have it men-
tioned in the plan."
Two years ago, commis-
sioners adopted a policy of
sustainability to govern all
county initiatives.
Sustainability is the concept
of maintaining the quality of
life in a community without
damaging
natural sys-
tems for
future genera-
tions.
With com-
missioners
N o r a
Patterson,
David Mills
and Paul THAXTON
M e r c i e r
expressing thoughts similar to
Staub's and Thaxton's, it was
clear that the rapid pace of
growth in the county par-
ticularly in South County -
has caught their attention.
And the growth, which usual-
ly comes with larger, more
expensive homes on* ever-
increasing pricey lots, creates
problems as the county
attempts to maintain a supply
of affordable homes.
"Someone who's building
one of these 6,000- to 8,000-
square-foot homes, I can't
imagine what people: do,"
Mercier said. "Play hide and
seek?"
"We don't need more mil-
lion-dollar homes," Mills
added. "This is a wonderful

"I know growth is coming
east of the interstate and in
South County,
but it would ',
be better if it
happened in
a planned
fashion n,"
Patterson l
said. "It's
going to be a
huge chal-

not ready to

On Wednesday, Manatee
Community College Trustee
Steve Boone, whose Venice
law firm is involved in most of
the development proposals in


South County, gave his fellow
trustees an overview of the
future expected growth in
South County and its impact
on the college. Boone project-
ed that approved and project-
ed development plans would
bring 16,000 new homes
coming to South County
within the next few years.
That figure did not include
the projected 15,000 homes
coming with the develop-
ment of the Thomas Ranch
property in North Port.
While the planning com-
mission will begin discus-
sions next month, county
commissioners will not begin
their public hearings on the
comprehensive plan amend-
ments until September.

The Municipal Code
Enforcement Board gave SIK
until June to demolish the

fines.
"I believe this is just part of
the notification process,"
Black said.
"These are not recently
identified projects."
Despite all reassurances,
on Friday the DEP commu-
nications department did
advise that residents with a
private well who receive a
contamination letter are
encouraged to contact their
county health department
and have the well tested.
"The health of Florida's res-
idents and its environment is
the top priority of the
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection," the DEP stat-
ed through a press release.

The Englewood site,
Rogers Pure, 210 S. Indiana

that's still an active location
that stores petroleum, Hickey
said.
Misty Rogers, co-owner of
Rogers Pure, said Friday the
gas station has been tested
regularly for at least nine
years and has passed all tests.
"We've always had a clean
bill of health," she said.

The DEP letters are meant
to inform the public that the
state and county are aware of
the contamination, the sur-
rounding drinking water is
safe and cleanup efforts are
moving forward, said Homer
Rice of the health depart-
ment.
If the site were ever dis-
turbed, however, then the
petroleum-laced water could
escape and possibly pollute
active drinking water sup-
plies.
"What they have here is a
shallow layer of water that is
contaminated, but no one
drinks that water. ... No one
in that area is being exposed,"
Rice said.

CHOOSING DENTAL FLOSS
Dental floss is a nylon string that comes in various forms and has a
variety of other properties. It can be thick or thin, round or flat, waxed
or unwaxed, flavored or unflavored. Each type has its advantages and
its supporters. Originally, all floss was waxed to permit easy passage
between the teeth, but advocates of unwaxed floss claim that waxed
floss does not remove plaque. All competent studies show, however,
that waxed floss cleans as well as unwaxed, and both can be beneficial
if used properly and harmful is abused.
A waxed dental floss has the advantage of slipping between the teeth
more easily and is less likely to fray and tear. When floss breaks, it
sometimes gets stuck between the teeth. This happens much more
frequently with unwaxed floss than with waxed. If your choice is
unwaxed, have waxed floss available in case an unwaxed piece gets
stuck. Sometimes they can be tough to get out. If this happens, wait
and try again. The contact may open slightly.

Eskew second at state
weightlifting finals

STAFF REPORT


Cory Eskew had worked
very hard and waited so long
for this.
The FHSAA Boys
Weightlifting Finals were held
Saturday at the O'Connell
Center on the University of
Florida campus in
Gainesville.
After winning the Section 7
Meet at 154 pounds, Eskew
had his sights on a gold medal
at the state finals.
But it didn't turn out to be
Eskew's day, as an official's
call hurt him in the bench
press. The Venice High senior
had to settle for second place.
Chris Smith of Gainesville
,bench pressed 340 pounds
and he hoisted 305 pounds in
.the clean and jerk for a total of
645.
Eskew had a 315-300 for a
total of 615.
It could have been a lot
closer.
"I got screwed on the
benchh" Eskew said. "The offi-
cial gave an early press call. I
Lifted 325, but he said no lift.
Coach (Nick) Coleman said
you can't do anything about
it."
A 325 or 330 in the bench
would have put Eskew in line
to challenge for the gold.
Instead, the 315 killed him.
Eskew was forced to go 330
in the clean and jerk. He
failed, leaving Smith the win-
ner.
Eskew had benched 330
and lifted 310 in the clean and
jerk at the Section 7 Meet.
Venice also had Robert
Compton competing at 183
pounds at Saturday's state
finals. Compton had won
Section 7 with a 300-270--
570. The senior had a person-
al best 315-270-585 on
Saturday.
Senior Russ Harris com-
peted at 238 pounds. He had a
bench press of 325 and a
clean and jerk of 300 for a
,total of 625.
Junior Nic Guggino also
had an at-large berth to the
'state finals, but he couldn't
compete at 139 pounds
because he broke a wrist in
practice earlier in the week.

2' at 6:30 p.m. in the VHS

The cream of the crop rises
to the top in the district track
and field meet.
Only the top finishers get
to advance to the regional
and state meets.
Eleven Venice High girls
and five boys took the first
,step toward those goals by
finishing in the top four in
their respective events at
Friday's Class 4A District 8
Meet held at Lakewood
Ranch.
A top four finish earned a
trip to the Region 2 Meet next
Friday at Osceola High.


As a team, the Lady
Indians placed fifth out of six
schools competing. The boys
were sixth out of six.
Venice girls coach Brenda
Clark was pleased just to get
as many as 11 to the next
level.
"I'm really happy," said the
second-year head coach. "We
just wanted to qualify. We had
no personal bests. It was a
long day, and I think maybe it
being Grad Night also affect-
ed the girls."
Individually, Venice had
one first-place finish, as
freshman Samantha Seeley
won the shot put with a toss
of 35 feet, 11 3/4 inches.


Senior Vickie Mitchell also
qualified for regional in that
event by placing third (35-3
1/2).
Mitchell was third in the
100 meters, running it in
12.76 seconds.
Another qualifying in field
events was senior Jessica
Enander, who went 4 feet, 9
inches in the high jump.
Stephanie Korszen ran sec-
ond to Riverview's Channing
Cookerly in the 3200 meters
- 12 minutes, 23 seconds, to
Cookerly'sl2:06.
Chelsea Rose was third in
the 1600 with a time of 5:45.
Running sick didn't help the
freshman.


Carla Valor was third in the
400 at 1:02.
All three of the Venice girls
relay teams qualified for
regional.
The 3200 relay consisting
of Korszen, Genna Jones,
Katie Adams and Rose ran a
10:20 -,four seconds behind
Riverview.
"Stephanie had just run
the 3200 and Chelsea was
sick," Clark said.
The 1600 relay team of Lisa
Marie Iorio, Korszen, Valor
and Sarah Ellis ran a second-
place 4:31 nine seconds
behind Riverview.
The 400 relay team of
Mitchell, Valor, Ellis and


Jessica Votour was third at
52.14.
. "We're just not as deep as
some of the other schools,"
Clark said. "I only brought 19
girls. To have 11 advance is
pretty good."
Clark said the relay teams
need to fine tune their hand-
offs.
The boys had a thrower
and a relay team earn a visit
to next Friday's region meet.
Discus thrower Mike
Kimsonwas fourthwitha toss
of 127 feet, 10 inches.
The 400 relay team was
also fourth. Adrian Platt, Kiki
Merzius, Austin Carter and
Tony Charles ran a 46.76.

Tourney time for softballers


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR


After losing twice to
Lakewood Ranch this spring,
the Venice High softballers
want the Mustangs so bad
they can smell blood.
Hopefully, the Lady
Indians will get that chance if
they can win their district
semifinal game on Tuesday.
Venice is the host team for
the Class 5A District 11
Tournament. The Lady
Indians are seeded second
after losing two regular sea-
son games by one run to top
seed Ranch.
Venice (20-4 and ranked
eighth in the state) will play
third seed Charlotte at 5 p.m.
Tuesday.
Unbeaten Ranch, ranked
No. 2 in 5A, will play the sur-
vivor of Monday's opening
round game between fourth
seed Manatee and fifth seed
Port Charlotte.
That semifinal will be at 7
p.m. Tuesday.
The championship game
will be 7 p.m. Thursday.
To get to a third meeting
with Ranch, Venice must
defeat the Lady Tarpons.
The Lady Indians have
beaten Charlotte twice this
season.
"The last time was close,"
Lady Indian coach Amy
Kanter said. "We're not over-
confident. You can't let your
guard down or you're a beat-
en team. We'll be taking them
one game at a time."
Kanter is happy to be play-
ing at home.
"It's always an advantage
to be at home," said Kanter,
who has guided Venice


teams to five straight 20-win
seasons.
Strong pitching and
defense have been keys to
the Lady Indians success this
season.
Heather Laird (12-0) and
Heather Boyts (7-4) are a for-
midable 1-2 punch. Boyts
has lost some tough games,
including 1-0 and 2-1 deci-
sions to Ranch.
The Venice defense is led
by catcher Amber Davidson,
shortstop Brittany Hipple
and third.baseman Mandy
Simon.
Offensively, the Lady
Indians have several batting
more than .300. Davidson,
the lone senior, is at .382.
Simon is hitting .350. Hipple
is at .338. Felicia Taylor is at
.316.

BY DON HUTCHINS
CORRESPONDENT

After clinching the top
seed in the district Thursday
evening with a win a against
Charlotte, the Venice High
Indians came into Friday
night's game against the Fort
Myers Green Wave with a
renewed confidence.
Although the Indians did
not manage to get any runs
across, they managed to put
up a respectable showing
against, a formidable oppo-
nent.
Fort Myers used a seventh-
inning run to squeeze out a 1-
0 victory. ;:
Jeremie Cook began the
evening pitching for Venice
high and managed to shut out
the Green-Wave through six
innings of play.
Despite his strong perfor-
mance, coach Craig Faullkner
brought in the fresh arm of
Martin Kenealy to close out
the game for the Indians.
After facing a couple batters,
Faulkner made another
pitching change, bringing in
Jordan Lucas in relief of
Kenealy.. ,
Despite Faulkner's attempt
to mix up the rotation against
Fort Myers, the Green Wave's
offense came on strong in the
end. '
After the Indians' pitching
gave up a walk to Aaron
Crittendon, a wild pitch
allowed the batter to advance

against," Schropp said. "They
did a great job getting six hits
off of me."

going 2-for-3. Jason
Staszewski had a triple. Trevor
Pelletier, Jeremie Cook,

The ultimate golf mock draft?


Yes, I'm one of those draft-
niks.
The NFL Draft is like an
oasis in the middle of the
nothingness that occupies
the sports landscape this time
of year. ,
While I was watching all of
the invented craziness that
happens the week of the
draft, mostly bogus trade sce-
narios and mock drafts, I had
a thought. "What if...", I said
to myself out loud, the PGA
had a draft?
I know that golf is an indi-
vidual game, but that doesn't
mean it couldn't be a team
event as well.
Think about NASCAR
where the drivers are racing
for themselves but are also
members of a racing team.
This would be an interesting
way to instill some of that
team camaraderie that is
lacking on tour nowadays,
when it's all about you all the
time.
I think the tour could use
this to boost their charitable
donations, which is always

Striving for a bicycle-friendly community


BY RENEE LEPERE
STAFF WRITER

Wanda Short remembers
when there were plenty of
"boonie" areas in Sarasota and
Charlotte counties to ride
bicycles without much inter-
action with vehicles.
"It's changing," said Short,
president of the Coastal
Cruisers Bicycle Club. "You
always had to be alert, but
there is alot (more) traffic than
there used to be. It's more
intense."
An estimated 1,000 families
move to Florida daily, with 70
percent of them now moving
to the west coast of Florida. As
the population grows, so does
the number of vehicles and
bicycles. Because of those sta-
tistics, some communities
have begun to look at design-
ing roads that' accommodate
several modes of transporta-
tion, from driving to walking.
"Most roads around here
do not meet standards for
bicycle safety," said Gary
Harrell, coordinator of the
Charlotte County Metropoli-
tan Planning Organization's
Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory
Committee. "Part of the prob-
lem is the right of way.


"Whenever the road is
going to be improved, we try
to put in bicycle lanes where it
is feasible. But the old platting
is going to be a challenge."
It can also be costly. If bike
paths had been added to the
new Aqui Esta Drive in Punta
Gorda, the cost of improve-
ments would increase from
$17 million to $32 million,
Harrell said.
"The question becomes
whether people are willing to
tax themselves for that,"
Harrell said.
Charlotte County does
have $300,000 through the
federal TEA-21 initiative, to
spend on enhancements for
sidewalks and bike paths. That
money can be used for land-
scaping and historic preserva-
tion to improve those roads
too.
However, the city of Punta
Gorda and Charlotte County,
through the MPO's bicycle
advisory committee, have
decided to pursue a Bicycle
Friendly Community designa-
tion from the League of
American Bicyclists.
The League was founded as
the League of American
Wheelmen in 1880. Bicyclists,
known then as "wheelmen,"


were challenged by rutted
roads of gravel and dirt and
faced antagonism from horse-
men, wagon drivers and
pedestrians.
In an effort to improve rid-
ing conditions so they might
better enjoy their newly dis-
covered sport, more than
100,000 cyclists from across
the country joined the League
to advocate for paved roads.

Bicycle-friendly
communities
Harrell said the BPAC is in
the process of putting together
an action plan. The action
plan includes:
Adopting a target level of
bicycle use to be achieved
within a specific time frame
and improved data collection
to monitor progress.
Safe and convenient bicy-
cle access to all parts of the
community through a signed
network of on- and off-street
facilities, low-speed streets
and secure parking. Local
cyclists should be involved in
identifying maintenance
needs and improvements.
Establishing information
programs to promote bicy-
cling for all purposes, and to
communicate the manybene-


fits of bicycling to residents
and businesses with bicycle
maps, public relations cam-
paigns and neighborhood
rides.
Make the city or county a
model employer by encourag-
ing bicycle use among its
employees by providing park-
ing, showers and lockers and
establishing a city bicycle fleet.
Ensure all policies, plans,
codes and programs are
updated and implemented to
take advantage of every
opportunity to create a more
bicycle-friendly community.
Staff in all departments should
be offered training to enable
them to complete the task.
Educate all road users to
share the road and interact
safely. Road design and educa-
tion programs should com-
bine to increase the confi-
dence of bicyclists.
r Enforce traffic laws to
improve the safety and com-
fort of all road users, with par-
ticular focus on behaviors and
attitudes that cause motor
vehicle/bicycle crashes.
Develop special programs
to encourage bicycle use in
communities where signifi-
cant segments of the popula-
tion do not drive and where


short trips are common.
Promote intermodal trav-
el between public transporta-
tion and bicycles by putting
bike racks on buses, improv-
ing parking at transit and
improving access to rail and
public transport vehicles.
Establish a city- or county-
wide. multidisciplinary com-
mittee for nonmotorized
mobility to submit to commis-
sioners/mayors a regular eval-
uation and action plan for
completing these items.
While Charlotte County
and the city of Puma Gorda
are just starting the process,,
Sarasota had the designation
several years ago and let it
lapse because the process had
become too arduous.
"We could probably still
have the designation," said
Alex Boudreau, Sarasota
County bicycle/pedestrian
coordinator. "But the applica-
tion got outrageous. It had
gone from something man-
ageable to something cum-
bersome. Some people also
thought it was a joke. They'd
say, 'I wouldn't ride my bike
around here.'"
Boudreau said thdie county
still continues to incorporate,
when it can, infrastructure


that is bicycle-friendly. Bicycle
lanes and sidewalks are
included in new project.
Bicycle parking was include
at the new Sarasota Count!
Area Transportation transfer
station in Sarasota.
"I think we are as bicycle-
friendly or unfriendly as ever,"
Boudreau said. "There af
more users on liniitg
resources."
Until engineering catch.
up, Harrell said, the best
defense for cyclists and
motorists is continuing edj-
cation.
Boudreau said that sever l
years ago, Sarasota Coun j
produced television publ
service announcements abo
the rules of the road. Tl-t
League of American Bicyclists
is now asking the county t'
send out informational fliers
in utility bills.
This summer, SarasoIta
County will try to compile 'a
bicycle level of service, which
will act as a report card for
roads in the county. It will tale
into account speed limit, the
number of heavy vehicles,
total vehicles and driveways
along a road. ..
"Education has to be a coiL
tinuous effort," Boudreau said


Miami light will be fixed


Engineers are going to
give the traffic signal at
Miami and U.S. 41
Business an attitude
adjustment.

BY TOMMY MINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

The red light at Miami and
U.S. 41 Business is still goofed
up but help is on the way.
"We were out there the
other day after we got a call, I
guess that was you, and yes,
something is wrong, we' are
looking into it," Project 41
senior engineer Tom Deer
said. "The sensors on 41 are
sensing cars and keeping
green time so we have to set a
time limit to green.'"
Deer said contrary to what
critics say, engineers actually
do go. out to the site to moni-
tor traffic in addition to using
computer models.
He said the sensors buried
in the road are designed to
recognize where the highest
demand (number of vehicles)
is and cycle the light
Willie Sutton robbed
banks because that is where
the money is the light at
Miami stays green, on '41
because that is where the
heaviest traffic is.

Too smart for us
The lights at Tampa
Avenue and Venice Avenue


are keyed to the Hatchett
Creek Bridge. The Miami light
is not a part of that loop,
according to Deer.
When the bridge is up, you
cannot turn left at Tampa and
Venice Avenue for obvious
reasons the intersections
would be blocked and there is
no place to go anyway,
because the spans are open.
However, at Tampa and
Venice, you can go straight
when the light cycles green.'
But at Miami, you cannot
cross 41 at Miami nobody
knows why so you wait
until the bridge closes-some
five, six. or seven minutes
after it opens.

And, another thing
You are going west over the
Venice Avenue Bridge hoping
to turn left onto southbound
41.
The arrows turn green so
you and a few other cars
make the turn. Of course the
light on southbound 41 at
Miami is red, so you have
nowhere to go.
So cars are stacking up
from the Miami light all the
way back to the Venice
Avenue intersection because
they turned into the red light
at Miami. Were the light
timed with the Venice Avenue
turn arrows so that when
people turned left they could
keep on going south on 41
instead of having to stop, it
would make sense.


Here's how you can help
Traffic signals have a mind
of their own.
They are triggered by mag-
netic sensors (loops), which
in turn are activated by the
metal in a car.
That wide, white line
painted across the lane is
more than cosmetic. It is
called a stop bar and its
placement is calculated.
"They (motorists) have to
pull up to the stop bar or the
sensor won't trigger the light,"
Venice Public Information
Officer Pam Johnson said.
If you pull past, or stop too
far behind, the stop bar, you
will be "out of the lpop," so to
speak. The sensors will not
know what to do and you will
likely sit there forever waiting
for the light to change.
The driver of the first car at
the intersection carries an
awesome responsibility.
Motorcycles offer another
challenge to the. sensors.
There may not be enough
metal mass on a bike to acti-
.vate the sensors and you
will likely sit there forever.
PBS&J will eventually turn
traffic signal maintenance,
including timing of the lights
on the island, over to the city.
The county is in charge of
signal maintenance off-
island.

How to outsmart
the Miami light

The plucky winner is...

and you want to go straight,
turn right onto southbound
41, then make an immediate
U-turn and head north on the
green light, or turn right on
Miami if that's where you
want to go.
If traffic will not permit an
immediate U-turn, go south
until you can turn left into a


side street, turn around,
come back to 41, make a
right on 41 and continue
north.
It sounds like a pretty com-
plicated way to beat a light,
but it is guaranteed to work,
and to be faster than waiting
for the red light to cycle.
When you get to Miami


and proceed north through ,
Venice Avenue and over te
Hatchett Creek Bridge, life
cars in line on Miami waiting
to turn left on 41 will still !e
there.

Saluting men of honor


SUN PHOTO BY JEFF TAVARES, jtavares@venicegondolier.com
sector A Cafferata, Jr., recipient of the Medal of Honor, was in Venice on Friday to be honored
Wong with other military veterans.


Medal of Honor recipient Hector A. Cafferata, Jr.,
was the guest of honor at Assisted Living At Bon
$ecours in Venice, which saluted America's war
heroes.


BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER.


It was one day in particular
|in the life of Hector .A.
ICafferata, Jr. less than a 24-
hour period on a subfreezing
evening in Korea in 1950 -
that secured his place in
American history
One of only 124 living who
earned the Medal of Honor,
the country's highest award for
valor, Cafferata is, like many
veterans, a reluctant hero.-
The Medal of Honor has
been bestowed to fewer than
3,500 individuals since 1863,
most of them posthumously,
said Dr. Michael Lindquist,
past executive director of the
Congressional Medal of Honor
Society. Lindquist was guest
speaker at the center's event
:honoring America's war
heroes.
"It's not easy to wear this
medal," Cafferata told a group
of war veterans and others
gathered at Assisted Living At
Bon Secours on Friday..
Assisted Living At Bon
Secours was an appropriate
i setting for the celebration.
JTwenty of its 100 residents are
men ana women who served
their country in the military.
IThe audience of 50 was made
,up primarily of war veterans
from the surrounding area and
ithe center.
On the podium rested a felt-
hed antique case covered by
glass containing three medals
of honor representing the
"Army, Navy and Air Force, with
their light blue ribbon and


inverted five-point stars.
The case is protected by the
FBI, even though the medals
were never worn by an
American hero. They were
among 3,000 copies confiscat-
ed by the FBI from a business
that created them on behalf of
the U.S. government, but
made extras for the black mar-
ket.
"We're getting them all
back, one by one," Lindquist
said.
Lindquist gave a historical
presentation on the medal of
honor and some of its recipi-
ents, including Cafferata.
Citation
Hector A. Cafferata, Jr. was
"only 21 years of age when he
set foot on Korean soil in 1950
as a private in the U.S. Marine
Corps Reserve (Company F,
2nd Battalion, 7th Marines,
Ist Nlarine Division).
A surprise attack that
began in the darkness of a
subfreezing November night
would change his life forev-
er.
When it was over, Cafferata
would be awarded the Medal
of Honor "for conspicuous
gallantry and intrepidity at
the risk of his life above and
beyond the call of duty while
serving as a rifleman in action
against enemy aggressor
forces."
These are portions of the
official citation:
"When all the other mem-
bers of his fire team became
casualties, creating a gap in the
lines, during the initial phase


of a vicious attack against his
company's hill position, Pvt.
Cafferata waged a long bardttle
with grenades and rifle fire as
the attack gained momentum
and the enemy threatened
penetration through the gap
endangering the integrity of
the entire defensive perimeter.
"Making a target of himself
under devastating automatic
weapons fire, rifles, grenades,
and mortars, Cafferata
maneuvered up and down the
line and delivered accurate
and effective fire "against the
onrushing force, killing 15,
wounding many more and
forcing the others to withdraw
so that reinforcements could
move .up and consolidate the
position.
"Later that same morning,
when a hostile grenade landed
in a shallow entrenchment
occupied by wounded
marines, Pvt. Cafferata rushed
into the gully under heavy fire,
seized the deadly missile in his
right hand and hurled it free of
his comrades before it .deto-
nated, severing jart of one fin -
ger and seriously wounding
him in the right hand and arm.
"Courageously ignoring the
intense pain, he staunchly
fought on until he was struck
by a sniper's bullet and was
forced to evacuate for medical
treatment.
"Stout-hearted and
indomitable, Pvt. Cafferata,
by his fortitude, great person-
al valor and dauntless perse-
verance in the face of almost
certain death, saved the lives
of several of his fellow
marines and contributed
essentially to the success
achieved by his company in
maintaining its defensive
position against tremendous
odds."

SARASOTA COUNTY BRIEFS


Water conservation
efforts recognized
When the Sarasota County
commissioners declared
April as Water Conservation
Month last Tuesday, they rec-
ognized two local citizens for
outstanding efforts in con-
serving water.
Through partnerships with
county and regional water
managers, Venice Golf &
Country 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
Audubon International certi-
fication for its golf courses
and for preserving and creat-
ing wildlife habitats while
reducing the quantity and
improving the quality of
stormwater runoff.
In Venice, Lakeside Woods
South Homeowners
Association, through the
leadership of Lamont
Andrews, was instrumental in
making changes in the opera-
tion of the irrigation system,
resulting in a 4'-million-gallon
reduction annually. It
achieved this .by calibrating
the irrigation 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 mas-
ter gardener in 2003, also vol-
unteers his time removing
invasive exotic plants along
the Venice Intracoastal
Waterway and other loca-
tions.
Statewide, local govern-
ments are declaring April as


Water Conservation Month.
Gov. Jeb Bush signed a
statewide proclamation April
19 in Tallahassee.
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
were acknowledged at a spe-
cial recognition event
Friday.
The health department is
continually recruiting volun-
teers and student interns who
can share their time and tal-
ent and have a desire to be
part of a quality organization.
Volunteer positions are avail-
able as Spanish language
interpreters, licensed physi-
cians and nurses and clerical
support.
The health department's
Medical Reserve Corps,
which is composed exclusive-
ly of volunteers who serve in
medical and non-medical
roles during a public health
emergency or other disaster
needs planners, trainers and
individuals with good organi-
zational skills to serve in cler-
ical roles.
For more information,
contact Pat Jaffe at 861-2717.


Described videos
at Jacaranda library
Sarasota County residents
with visual impairments have
a new resource for enjoying
feature films.
The Francis T. Bourne
Jacaranda Public Library in
Venice now has a circulating
collection of "described"
videos housed in its Low
Vision/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 meet-
ing 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 audiences,
because the descriptions do
not intrude on spoken dialog.
The Jacaranda library's
Lvow Vision/Hearing room
has 98 such films on VHS
videotape.
The tapes maybe checked
out, and the following films
will be shown in May and
June in the library's meeting
room (all showings are at 2
p.m.):
May 21: "The Joy Luck
Club," with Tsai Chin and
Kieu Chinh.
June 18: "L.A.
Confidential," starring Kim
Basinger.
The Francis T. Bourne
Jacaranda Public Library is
located at 4143 Woodmere
Park Blvd., Venice. Call 861-
5000 for more information
about described videos at
Jacaranda and other Sarasota
County libraries.

bike race

and Recreation Department
is looking for volunteers to
help with the Suncoast
Criterium bicycle race and
arts and crafts festival.
The event will take place 7
a.m.-9 p.m. May 14 on West
Venice Avenue in downtown
Venice. The competitive bicy-
cle race is in its third year in
Venice, and is an official event
of the Florida Cup Series. The'
race is sanctioned by the
United States Cycling
Federation.

ated health and human ser-
vices directory.

Osprey, Venice and Nokomis.


The directory is part of a long-
term plan to improve the
health of residents by increas-
ing their access to timely
information on local health
and wellness services.
Community health planners
are eager to get the directory
into the hands of all residents,
especially people who maybe
in need of free or subsidized
community services.

Play Ball! still
at History Center
Fans can explore the rich
history of the sport and its
impact on the region in a new
exhibit at the Sarasota County
History Center.
Play Ball! explores the role
baseball played in the 1920's

place to visit and live. Payne
Park opened in the spring of
1924 when the New York
Giants arrived for spring
training. Season tickets sold
for $11 and general admis-
sion (or viewing from the car)

tographs of the teams that

Dodgers and Chicago White
Sox. The team played its last
game at Payne Park in 1988.

ence.

OUR VIEW



Stop SHIPping housing funds to other projects


he Legislature has been raiding State
Housing Initiative Partnership funds
for two years now taking money out
of the hands of those who would build more
affordable housing.
Now, obviously bored with making the
effort each year, the House has voted to per-
manently cap the money and divert almost
two-thirds of it to the general fund.
The Legislature's idea that it can change
the law to find more money for a general fund
weakened by millions of dollars in tax cuts is
a slap in the face to Floridians, especially
those in DeSoto and Charlotte counties
where affordable housing took a hit from


Hurricane Charley.
The Sadowski Act dedicates money from
documentary stamps (attached to assorted
legal documents) to a state trust fund to help
pay for housing.
All of Southwest Florida has benefited in
the past from those funds and, with the cur-
rent housing crisis, needs help more than
ever to build homes and complexes for
lower-income families. Without this type of
housing, we will continue to struggle to fill
jobs and more and more people will be
forced to move away.
We must keep in mind, we are not just
talking about housing for immigrants or the


poor a stereotype many subscribe to -
but housing for our elderly and disabled.
Last year alone, doc stamp revenues
amounted to more than $300 million. Only
$192 million went to the trust fund, and the
House bill. would cap SHIP funds at that
amount.
This year, with property values soaring
across the state, the revenues could reach or
surpass $400 million. That is a lot of money to
be siphoned off into the general fund to pay
for lawmakers' pork.
Diverting close to $200 million equates to
a loss of about 12,600 homes, more than $1.4
billion of economic activity and 28,000 jobs


each year. We can't afford that, and our repre-
sentatives know it.
We find it unconscionable the Legislature
would pass sich a bill. Legislators who vote
for it owe us, an explanation, especially about
how they're going to meet the growing need
for affordable housing after giving away so
much money that could be spent .on the
problem.
The fate of the bill lies in the Senate, where
we hope a more reasonable approach will be
taken.
Florida needs more affordable housing. To
ignore that need at a time when thousands
are homeless would be a travesty.


Who is most wrong?


BOB VEDDER
COLUMNIST

Herb Levine was told he
could not be a leader in the
Envision Venice process,
which for all intents and pur-
poses is over. At least, it is
transitioning into another
phase.
Depending on who you
talk to, Herb failed to be forth-
right in the table discussions
at the Salvation Army regard-
ing growth. Allegedly three
people at his table com-
plained he only gave his view-
points when asked to present
in the public portion of the
evening. Two other people
didn't see it that way and
found that he expressed the
consensus view of the table.
They also commented that it
was a pretty rushed process.
The city apparently has
reconsidered and rescinded
its action.
I was sitting at the next
table. I do not know exactly
what happened at Herb's
table, but I can see how it
could happen.
At our table the facilitator
also was the presenter,
although at other tables I saw
it done like at the table where
Herb was, where a participant
would write down everyone's
thoughts. When the time
came to present them, the
facilitator just led the discus-
sion.
At most of the tables all
ideas got written down. If
they didn't at Herb's table,
someone should have asked
for it to happen especially
the facilitator, who was in
charge.
In the two sessions I have
been at, presenters left out
items. The lady running our
table was a pro and did a nice
job, yet when speaking left
out one of our most impor-
tant points. I certainly wasn't
going to turn her in, as it was-
n't that important. Cutting
presentations short was easy,
as the public portion was very
rushed because we were run-
ning late.
, John Osmulski, the volun-
teer leader and head of the
planning commission, and
Kathie Ebaugh, the city
employee heading Envision
Venice, had taken a long time
to talk about demographics
and interesting information
about growth. They showed
wonderful examples of differ-
ent kinds of buildings and
ways to separate areas, with
methods to achieve develop-
ment.
However, if I walked away
from that night with any dis-
appointment it was how John
and Kathie quite strongly
talked about how strong
growth is important, and how
height is a good thing.
, One said that if we don't
have high-rises, others will.


(The implication is we wduld
really miss out on some-
thing). They said if you don't
have height and density, you
will have sprawl.
It had the appearance of
being a very one-sided part of
the presentation that caught
many people by surprise. The
people you expect to be neu-
tral in this kind of process are
the leaders.
It certainly could make one
believe that maybe, just
maybe, this wonderful
process was just a charade,
that no matter what we all
said, the outcome would be
as staff wants. I certainly hope
not, but when staff is selling a
point of view, it makes one
wonder.
I doubt that Kathie or John
got a letter on their out-of-
character behavior, and I
don't think it served any good
purpose for Herb to get one.
This first part of the process
was over, and if they felt he
was biased, which I certainly
could believe, then they could
leave him out in the future.
There was no need to call him
out on what was something
less than a perfect process.
Herb's characterization of
John as going off on a tirade
was off-base, as John and
Kathie were very professional,
albeit biased in that one part.
If bias is the reason to leave
people out, then they need to
leave the two leaders out.
I should mention that at
the first presentations I went
to I saw none of that.

Union bothered by Black s remarks


Editor:
As president of AFSCME Local 1718,1 must respond to City
Manager Marty Black's statements in the Venice Gondolier Sun
City Notes of April 20.
The article was about an OMI manager who was removed
from city service for using "poor judgment," even though the
city said the allegations against him had no merit. Mr. Black
feels this is a benefit: "There's no fighting with union officials
over whether someone gets to keep his or her job. That person
simply goes away without ever entering the grievance
process." ,
This article is not about the bargaining-unit employees. It's
about an action taken against a supervisor.
Even city managers have rights, under the city's rides and
regulations, to a grievance procedure. For career employees,
this attitude of dismissal without merit or recourse is a serious
issue
As for the union, the agreement with the city states, "It is the
intent and purpose of this agreement to assure sound and
mutually beneficial working and economic relationships
between the parties hereto, to provide an orderly and peaceful
means of resolving any misunderstanding or differences which
,may arise."
With the many unresolved issues we have with the city -
negotiations for a contract, many unresolved grievances, PERC
violations and now Mr. Black taking an.anti-union, union-
busting stance we have our work cut out for us.
Mr. Black was once asked how he thought the relationship
between the city and the union was. He responded "poor."
With his attitude toward the union and the employees, he is
not on track to win friends and influence people.

Ralph Hamann
President, AFSCME Local 1718


Do we want
a self-serve
economy?
Editor:
Thomas Jefferson said,
"Cultivators of the earth are
the most valuable citizens.
They are the most vigorous,
the most independent, the
most virtuous, and they are
tied to their country, and
wedded to its liberty and
interests by the most lasting
bonds."
He was speaking of farm-
ers, but one could construe
"cultivators" to be our work-
ers. I, for one, am proud to say
that I am one of those work-
ers.


Not everyone is born with
a silver spoon in their mouth,
nor is every lord or lady so
belittling to their serfs; those
that were found rebellion at
hand.
The next time you visit
your favorite establishment
for a bite of supper, imagine, if
you can, a place where you
have to serve yourself- wash
a plate, prepare the meal,
deliver it to your table and
then clean up afterwards.
Oh, you can do that at
home unless you have ser-
vants. Which, of course, you
don't, because then you would
have to house them and clear-
ly this is beneath you.


So before you look down
your nose at me, think back
where you came from, your
roots, and remember we
must all work together if we
are to be free.
Habitat for Humanity
should be a partner with gov-
ernment. Habitat for
Humanity is about home
ownership, not subsidized
housing. This "not-in-my-
back-yard" attitude needs
some reform, and those
believing in this state of mind
ought to wake up and smell
the roses, for "no man is an
island."

Question isn't 'Why
not?', but 'Why?'
Editor:
Some weeks ago, council
member Vicki Taylor was
quoted as saying that no citi-
zen had called her to protest
the county's approval of the
long pier. by the Hatchett
Creek Bridge. It is unfortunate
that Taylor, or any other
council member, had failed to
contact residents of that area
of Venice on this important
issue, especially since council
must soon approve major
construction related to the
pier.
The comment of Vice
Mayor John Moore, recently
quoted in the Gondolier Sun,
that no one had called him
to do something about the
proposed height exception
for new construction on
Venice Avenue, is more
problematic. Taylor likely
rarely runs into residents
who live by the north bridge,
but residents throughout
Venice are concerned about
height issues.
And why should council
members rely on phone calls,


where a few self-serving
callers can give a distorted
view of the public's opinion?
The city is fortunate to
have Herb Levine, who got so
much direct negative input
on the height exception that
he spent $300 of his own
money for the fee that
requires council to reconsider
approval of the height excep-
tion.
A developer or builder
brings along an entourage of
lawyers, engineers and archi-
tects when he appears before
council or the planning com-
mission to promote his prof-
itable project. Negative views
of citizens are often dismissed
for lack of professional prepa-
ration.
Shouldn't council mem-
bers defend their citizens by
having city departments pre-
pare data showing that a pro-
ject will actually have a net
substantial benefit to the
majority of residents without
harming.any minority?

Let's check for
manatees, too
Editor:
Kill to grow?
If there is evidence of
. scrub-jay territory, does this
stop planned development?
If so, the development at
Warm Mineral Springs needs
to be looked at to see how
many of these birds use this
80-plus acre area.
Looking at all unstarted
building should be a priority,
all others put on hold until
they can be inspected. I
strongly suggest looking at all
properties along the Spring
River, as this is a manatee
habitat where they winter.

Nobody wants a parking garage


No garage. Responding to the question, Does Venice need a
downtown parking garage: It does not need a garage.
Furthermore, people do not want a garage. They don't want to
pay for it, they don't want to pay to park and they don't want to
park in a garage. That's why people like to come to Venice. St.
Armands Circle does not have a parking garage and there are
tens of thousands of people going there every week, so Venice
certainly does not need a parking garage.

The Gondolier Sun has

to make it easier to find these

It is estimated that in 2025
the city of Venice will have
33,485 people and in 2030 the
county will have nearly
600,000 people. This is just
one of the stats coming from
the Envision Venice meetings.

The last time I tried to get
over the north bridge one of
the four sections took twice as
long as the others to close.
The northwest one takes for-
ever. It is ironic that this is the
one that has a pink bottom -
maybe it's a little shy or
embarrassed.
I hope the city can get the
warranty checked to find out
why that one part takes so
much longer to open and
close, and help move traffic a
little faster.

Venice bank robber getting around?


Rape charges dropped


The same man who did Bank One in Venice earli-
er this month may be getting a little greedy and
expanding his base of operations.


BYTOMMY MaNTYRE,
STAFF WRITER


The man who robbed
Bank One in Venice recently
may be making the same mis-
take all bank robbers make -
getting greedy and establish-
ing a pattern.
Someone knocked over
BankOhe inVenice onApril 1,
Fldgship-gNational Bank in
Sarasota on April 15, and and
the SouthTrust Bank in Punta
Gorda after that.
"From the descriptions
and the surveillance photos,


it looks like it might be the
same guy," said Sarasota
County Sheriff's Sgt. Chuck
Lesaltato.
One detective who has
worked many bank robberies
has a theory.
"If these guys would hit
one bank and quit, we'd rarely
catch them," he said. "But
they get greedy so they knock
over another one, their aiiili- '
er, next thing you know they
establish a pattern and we
nail them."
At Flagship, the suspect
came 'into the bank and


demanded money. No
weapon was seen or implied.
He fled on foot with an unde-
termined amount of money.
Maybe a shirt with his
name on it next?
The suspect was described
as a white male, mid-40s to
mid-50s, black hair, about 5
feet seven' to five feet nine
inches tall, 130-150 pounds.
He was wearing a white,
pinstriped, sports-jersey-style
shirt, blue jeans, sunglasses,
and a Kansas City Royals
baseball cap.
In 'the Venice bank heist,'
the suspect was wearing an
Old Navy sweatshirt.
In that job, the suspect said
he had a box and in the box
was a bomb.


No bomb was found.
Police are asking for help
in solving these robberies.
Anyone with information
should contact the North
District Criminal Investiga-
tion Bureau at 861-4900 or
leave information anony-
mously on the Crime Stop-
pers tip line at 366-TIPS
(8477).
You can also contact Ven-
ice Police Detective Bob Perry
at 486-2444.

McIntyre at:tmcintyre@

STAFF REPORT


A Venice man accused of
sexually assaulting a woman
on two occasions will not face
charges.
Jose Arias, 45, was arrested
March 9 on two charges of
sexual battery after a woman
said Arias had sexually as-
saulted her twice, only days
apart, in February.
The charges will be declin-
ed due to a lack of physical
evidence, assistant state at-
torney Betsy Sinphaywrote in
a memo. -
The woman told investiga-..


tors that Arias had begun sex-
ually harassing her, and she
had turned down his advan-
ces. The woman said he raped
her Feb. 21, but she did not
report it to police or tell her
family. She said two days later
Arias raped her again.
She waited until Feb. 28 to
seek medical treatment or
report it to authorities. Be-
cause of the delay in report-
ing, no physical evidence
could be recovered.
Initially, Arias denied hav-
ing sex with the complainant,
but later said he had conseni
sual sex with her. :

Flag burning charge amended to criminal mischief


BY RENEE LEPERE
STAFF WRITER

An Englewood man ac-
cused of burning 16American
flags in November will not
face a charge of public mutila-
tion of a flag, since it would be
a violation of his FirstAmend-
ment rights.
AndrewVincentMoore, 29,
1818 Whispering Pines Circle,
was charged Nov. 3 with pub-
lic mutilation of an American
flag and obstructing or op-
posing an officer. Moore told
police he was upset he was
unable to vote in the general
election.
Moore will be charged with
criminal mischief because the
flags did not belong to him.
Both charges are misde-
meanors.
According to a North Port
Police Department report, a
Sarasota County Sheriff's offi-
cer responded to a call of a
white male carrying a gaso-
line c and setting American
flags on fire. Witnesses identi-
fied Moore as having set fire
to 16 American flags at the
Lemon Bay Shopping Center,
1855 State Road 776.
Police found Moore walk-
ing in the Whispering Pines
subdivision, carrying a gas
can. When the officer asked to
speak to him for a minute,
Moore began to walk faster,
attempting to hide the gaso-
line can in front of him. When
police parked their marked
car in front of him, Moore ran.
Moore was caught in his
front yard, still carrying the
gas can. Moore denied light-
ing any flags.
Smell of gasoline
Moore told police the gas
can was at home. The report
said a Bic lighter and Camel
cigarettes were in his pocket,
but noted that he smelled of
gasoline at the time of arrest.


According to a memo from
the Sarasota County State
Attorney's Office, the United
States Supreme Court ruled
that burning the American
flag at a political protest rally
is expressive conduct subject
to the protections of the First


Amendment.
Assistant State Attorney
Mark Hillary wrote that the
facts and context of the
events of this case are pro-
tected by the First Amend-
ment. Moore will still face ob-
struction charges.

BYWARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


A little more than a week
after a Sarasota homeowners
group discussed problems
with State Road 776, a
Charlotte, County., group did
the same thing Monday
morning.
Dee Hawkins, a spokes-
woman for the Charlotte
G county Fire & ENMSI.and
Deputy First Class Edward
Moos from the Sheriffs Office
met with 30 members of the
West Charlotte Civic
Association to discuss prob-
lems with ,.the Charlotte
County side of the road.
Hawkins, who lives in
Englewood and drives the
road five times a day,
acknowledged that there were
problems.
Pulling statistics for colli-
sions that her department
responded to, Hawkins said
there were 604 collisions on
S.R. 776 from the Port
Charlotte Town Center mall in
Murdock to the county line in
Englewood in 2004. That's an
average of 50 collisions a
month.
For the period from Jan. I
to April 12, 2005, the depart-
ment has .responded to 201
collisions, an average of 67
wrecks a month.
And, she added, the statis-
tics could be higher because
the Sheriff's Office responded
to more collisions than Fire &
EMS did.
In particular, intersections
with Flamingo Drive, and
Oceanspray and Spinnaker
boulevards had the highest
incidents, Hawkins said.
"We know there are prob-
lems," she said. "I do my best
to avoid these areas."
What about Winchester?
Noticeable by its absence
was the intersection of
Winchester Boulevard and
S.R. 776. Hawkins said there
were no problems with traffic
entering or exiting
Winchester, but rather with
traffic in the median trying to
turn west or east.
Moos, who is the new com-
munity policing officer for the
Charlotte County side of
Englewood, was not that
familiar with specific prob-
lems regarding the road. He
was adamant, however, about
the cause of most collisions.
"It's a lack of discipline and
disregard of the traffic laws,"
Moos said. "Every segment of
the population is responsi-
ble."
Speed, however, was not
the cause of the collisions he
has investigated, Moos said.


More often, there are con-
tributing causes, like viola-
tions of rights of ways or the
failure to stop.

cellular phone usage, accord-

Association, was the fourth
leading cause of accidents.

The world in

perfect harmony

Thanks to the boys and
girls and their parents in-
volved in the Challenger
Baseball Program, the world
seemed in perfect harmony
last weekend. The tempera-
ture hovered in the 70s with a
nice breeze and the skies had
just enough clouds to color
the blue.
Rich Carroll organized the
Challenger Baseball Festival.
He got to the Wellfield Com-
plex at 2:30 a.m. to set up and
make sure details were in
place. Rich honored this col-
umnist by asking me to throw
out one of the first ceremoni-
al pitches. I was at field 6.
Assigned to the same field,
Randy Smith, armed with
one of the throw away cam-
eras, provided took photos.
Venice Indians baseball play-
ers Dan Martini, Trevor Pel-
letier and Jeremy Cook com-
pleted our team.
The young men pushed
wheelchairs, helped play the
outfield and held the'bat with
challenger players who had
difficulty grasping it on their
own.
Other Venice Indians base-
ball, players were on hand
along with players from the
North Port Bobcats. Coach
Craig Faulkner and coach
Rob Roe worked as well...
I learned that some Little
League parents don't lust fade
into the sunset. They join the
Challenger Baseball Team.
Christi Bennett, Fran Slump,
Nancy Carroll, Sue Heist and
Jim Hanks helped where
needed as they did when their
children played at Chuck
Reiter,
Rich Deto directed traffic.
Venice Police Officer Daniel
Whittaker and the Police Ex-
plorers worked as needed as
did CodyNichols and Tommy
Hanks. Members of the,
Moose served the meals. It
was amazing to watch their
organization. What a group.
The award ceremony gave
everyone a chance to high five
and the players loved their
medals. Ray Sinibaldi an-
nounced each team as
though he was announcing
his Boston Red Sox.
Rich Carroll wants to to
build aVenice Field of Dreams
for Challenger Baseball
equipped with all the tools
the players need to partici-
pate in the sport.
One mom told me they
don't play after rain as most
players are in wheelchairs
and can't manage a wet field.
Be generous.
Think pink
The Women's Sertoma
Club of Venice scheduled the
Sun Fiesta for Oct. 21, 22 and
23. Some profits will benefit
the Susan Korman Breast
Foundation so the group is
thinking pink.
Yvonne Pinkerton, known
around town as "Pinky," is the
grand marshal of the parade.
These pink ladies and their
newly elected president, Syd
Gibson will come up with a
lot of great ideas.
Welcome to Venice
Darlene Curtin recently
moved to Venice from Wash-
ington, D.C., where she work-
ed with Child Passenger Safe-
ty.
Even though Darlene re-
tired, she wants to do some
similar work in Venice along
with helping make this com-
munity better by getting in-
volved in organizations.


BY JOHN MCCAFFERTY
GUEST WRITER

It's time to 'turn the spot-
light on a group of dedicated
volunteers who make history
come alive at the restored
Venice Train Depot along the
Intracoastal Waterway. Tour
the last remaining depot in
Sarasota County with any of
its docents and you'll leave
better informed about both
the historic depot and Venice
itself.
Since its dedication in Oc-
tober 2003, more than 3,300
people have visited the depot
built by the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers in
1927 for $47,500. It was used
for many years until train ser-
vice began to wane.
The last passenger train left
the depot in 1971. Boarded up
to keep out vagrants, the
depot stood neglected and
forlorn until Sarasota County
purchased the depot site in
1999. The depot was restored
in 2002-3 with $2.3 million of
federal, state, county and lo-
cal funds.
Much has been written
already, and rightly so, about
how former Venice resident
Rollins Coakley and others
worked long and hard to push
the restoration idea forward.
Little.has been said about the
volunteers who've, worked
faithfully since to tell visitors
about the depot's importance
to Venice and Sarasota Coun-
ty. .
"We have 13 regul.-- do-
cents on board since 2003,
five new docents and six peo-
ple who greet visitors while
the docents are on tour," said
Betty Intagliata,. president of
the Venice Area Historical
Society Betty and her hus-
band, Paul, are regular do-
cents themselves. The others
are: Sue Chapman, Judi
Foote, Dot Fuahrmeister, Bill
Gallagher, Jerry Madden, John
Osborne, Fred Otte, Carolyn
Shrauger, Joan and Dick Wat-
son, and GeorgeYoungberg Jr.
New docents are: Ed and
Lee Dellert. Sal lavaroni, Jim
Middleton and George Wil-
son.
According to Jerry Mad-
den, vice president of the
society, some docents have
had to drop out due to time
constraints or home responsi-
bilities. So, the society is
always looking for new re-
cruits, he said.

IF YOU GO .
Depot tours: (Nov. 1-May 1)
Monday, Wednesdays and
Friday.
Tours start at 10 a.m. and run
every half-hour. Last tour
begins at 2:30 p.m.
(May 1-Oct. 31) Every
Wednesday (10 a.m.-noon).
Tours last a half hour.
For special group tour (15 or
more) or special lecture, call
the Historical Society at 412-
0151 and leave a message.


Furhmeister and Shrauger
"were on duty when I stopped
by the depot recently and was
greeted by Ann Cattes, who
sat in a chair with a leg in a
brace because of a recent fall.
SThe two docents were easy to.
identify because ofthestriped
locomotive engineer hats
they wore and the red ban-
danas around their neck.
As we waited for the day's
first visitors, I examined some
of the historic photos and
other items displayed around
us. These visual aids show
how the depot was once used
by cadets with the Kentucky
Military Institute, by the mili-
tary stationed at the Army Air


SUN PHOTOS B'i JOHN MCCAFFERTY
bocent Dot Fuhrmeister (right) enjoys leading tours of the Venice Train Depot. Here she explains some Venice history to Pinky
Downes (left) of Plainfield, III., and Gayle Maxey of Nokomis.


Base in Venice inWorldWar II,
and by many performers with
the Ringling Bros. and Barn-
urn & Bailey Circus.
Don and Flo Radzwion of
Nokomis and Dearborn
Heights, Mich., were the first
visitors and Shrauger took
them on a tour. Later, Furh-
meister did the same with two
women, Pinky Downes, on
vacation from Plainfield. fIl.,
and Gayle Maxey of Nokomis.
I tagged along as the do-
cents led us through .the
depot's various rooms, point-
ing out many interesting de-
tails in each. For example, we
learned that the BLE made
some of the materials used in
the depot and that the
waiting-room floors are origi-
nal concrete scored to look
like tile.
We saw a railroad hand car
donated by the Bailey family
of Venice and restored by the
Historical Society. We also saw
the old freight room, from
which produce, goods and
supplies were loaded onto
freight trains on the east side
of die building. Now rented
out by the county's Parks and
Recreation Department, this
large room can be used for
meetings, parties and other
activities.
The property north of the
depot is a small park with pic-
nic tables.
"Last month," said Intag-
liata, "the Sarasota County
Board of County Commis-
sioners named this the Rollins
W. Coakley Railroad Park. The.
depot site will always remain
the Historic Venice Train
Depot," she said.'
The red caboose to the
extreme north of the depot is
now the headquarters for the
Venice Area Historical Society.
As we walked toward it, the
docents called our attention
to a grassy area where a statue
of famed Ringling Bros. and
Barnum & Bailey animal
trainer, the late Gunther Ge-
bel-Williams, will be installed
later this year.
With all there is to see, I un-
derstand why Betty Intagliata



Docent Carol Shrauger (left) at the caboose with Flo and Don Radzwion of Nokomisand
Dearborn Heights, Mich.


said the docents' biggest chal-
lenge is "not to overwhelm
visitors with too much infor-
mation and to keep visitors'
timeframe, usually a half
hour."
During this time the do-
cents are expected to cover all
the basics, such as the depot's
Northern Italian architectural
style, how and why it replaced
an earlier train depot, its uses
through the years, and how
the restoration was financed.
On that and all other counts,
I'd give Furhmeister and


Shrauger anA.
Curious why people volun-
teer to be a docent and the
kind of questions they re-
ceive, I sent out a question-
naire.,
"Venice is a new home-
town for me," replied Judi
Foote, who now lives in Pel-
ican Pointe. Being a docent
"connects me to people and
the town's history and makes
me feel like a contributing
member of the community,"
she said.
Bill Gallagher does it be-


cause he enjoys sharing his
knowledge of Venice with vis-
itors. He said his interest in
Venice history and in saving
the train depot "makes it a
good fit."
Snowbird Fred Otte took
the job because he "wanted to
do something useful" after he
retired.
Another snowbird, Jerry
Madden, said the job gives
him "a chance to enlarge my
knowledge and appreciation

Donating blood is an inex-
pensive and effortless way to
give back to your community.
Since there is no artificial
substitute for human blood,
the Blood Bank relies on the
generosity of blood donors to
help replenish the blood sup-
ply available to three local
hospitals.
An average of 80 units of
blood are needed on a daily
basis. A blood donation is
separated into components
and can help cancer patients,
people undergoing surgery,
premature newborns and vic-
tims of traumatic accidents.
Giving blood is a simple
process that takes about 30
minutes.
The need For platelets
* One of the blood compo-
nents in high demand is
platelets. Platelets are small
cells that help control bleed-
ing, and they are essential to
blood clotting.
A cancer patient undergo-
ing chemotherapy may re-
quire platelets. A transfusion
of platelets replaces the plate-
lets damaged or destroyed by
chemotherapy. Others who
may need platelets are leu-
kemia patients, those under-
going surgery, organ trans-
plant recipients and bum vic-
tims.
For example, a bone mar-
row transplant recipient
requires, on average, 120
units of platelets, and severe
bum victims can require 20
units of platelets. It is neces-
sary to have an adequate sup-
ply of platelets because they
do not have a shelf life as long
as red blood cells. They must
be used within 5 days of col-
lection, whereas red blood
cells have a shelf life of 42
days.
People who donate plate-
lets can do so more often than
those donating red cells or
plasma-as frequently as two
times per month. People
interested in donating plate-
lets must have a platelet
count of at least 150,000 and
have not taken any aspirin-
containing medicine for two
days prior to donation.
The process to donate
platelets takes longer than a
normal whole blood dona-
tion, about 60 90 minutes,
but donors are given a chance
to relax and watch TV a

movie, read or talk with the
Blood Bank staff.
Volunteer blood donors
are given refreshments dur-
ing their wait. Platelet dona-
tions are performed through
a technique called apheresis,
which means to "separate."
The Blood Bank has an
instrument that removes
blood continuously from the
person's body, separates the
platelets from the rest of the
blood components, and then
returns the plasma and red
cells back to the person.
This can either be done
through a one or two arm
procedure. The donor feels
physically well after donating
because the body fluids are
replaced.
In addition, a person's
body quickly replaces the
donated platelets. While it
may seem to be a complicat-
ed process, the volunteer
blood donor only has to sit,
and relax.
Donation requirements
People interested in donat-
ing blood must be at least 17
years old, weigh at least 110
pounds and be in reasonably
good health. However, some
people may be excluded tem-
porarily or permanently due
to certain travel or health
risks. First time donors need
to bring photo identification.
For more information
about how to donate, where
to donate or a schedule of
bloodmobile drives, visit

By Vicki Connell,
M.A., CCC-A
Certified Audiologist
Q. My mother was recently
fit with two, digital hearing
aids but was never given any
testing to determine if they
are working right. Isn't some
follow up testing required?
A. There are numerous post
fitting tests which should be
performed and are part of the
verification process. To what
extent these tests are performed
depends on who fit the hearing
aid initially. Most quality
audiology clinics perform two
sets of verification tests,
objective and subjective.
Objective testing consists of
performing real ear
measurements in order to
record the response of the
hearing aid at various input
levels. If real ear measurements
are not obtained, there is no
way to insure, the programming
of the instrument is appropriate
for the patient's hearing loss.
Subjective testing is when a
patient is asked to identify
-difference words and sounds
with their hearing aids on and
set appropriately. These tests
are conducting in quiet and
noisy environments to measure
how well a patient can hear in
various surroundings. If your
mother purchased her
instruments from a quality
clinic, these tests were
performed and you are entitled
to a copy of the results. If these
tests were not performed then
your mother needs to be seen
by the Audiologist at
Woodmere Hearing Center as
soon a possible at 492-4327 to
insure that the instruments she
purchased are the correct
solution to her hearing problem
and will be able to serve her
needs into the future.

Retiring on campus provides opportunities


Many of us who are old
have time to do anything we
want as long as it can be done
from a chair think, watch
(or listen to) TV, play games,
read, etc. To some it may
sound like the good life. When
there is pain, or confusion, it
isn't easy. But is anything in
life easy?
My dear, glamorous friend
Gladys hailed from Long
Island, N.Y. She was always
beautifully dressed and full of
zest. One year she began hav-
ing many medical problems
and said to her son, "Harry,
I'm getting older!" "Mother,"
he said, "I have news for you.
You are old!" Where I live we
are all old.
The same delightful lady
was on her way to a drug
store. Her granddaughter was
visiting, and asked her to buy
a pregnancy test kit. Gladys
dutifully did as asked. She
paid for the kit and started to
leave. But then she wheeled
around and went back to the
cashier, asking "Do you give
senior discounts?" I wonder
what the cashier thought?
The children of people my
age are now reaching retire-
ment age. They are part of the
"sandwich generation." They
still have busy careers, are
expected to be active in char-
itable functions and to help
widi the grandchildren. At the
same time they are expected
to provide emotional and
physical care for aging par-


ents. My son and his wife are
definitely in the sandwich
generation. Both sets of par-
ents are in failing health, he
has a new job, they are
putting a daughter through
college and once in a while
trying to find time for their
love of the outdoors and
nature far away from civiliza-
tion. Part of their solution isa
cabin deep in the woods with
a wireless network to make
sure they are always in touch.
That is definitely the sand-
wich pickle.
As I write this I have a tem-
perature 2-1/2 degrees above
normal. I say I don't want any
heroics, so why do I accept
antibiotics? I dunno? For
three days I have been pon-
dering the question. Prior
cultures took care of the
decision for us. Now, as a
result of modem medicine,
we have to decide for our-
selves. Rationale tells us it is
time to let go to push the
ice floe away. The subcon-
scious tells us to live on. It is a
pickle for us as well.
I know my little rhymes
aren't poetry in the real sense
of the word, but here's one I
hope you like:
'Rusty'
Old age is golden, or so we
hear.
It's more like rust after the
80th year.
The carburetor fails, need-
ing costly repairs,
The exterior shows signs of
wear and tear.
The battery gets weak and
the lights go dim,
It's a terrible shape the
body is in. .
The gas line gets clogged,
the motor breaks down.
The whole caboodle has to
be towed to town.
I think I know where we
oldsters goofed,
We simply forgot to get the
bus rustproofed!


Let Gondolier Sun Classifieds work for you.

JIM MILLER
GUEST COLUMNIST

Dear Savvy Senior,
Some friends of mine recent-
ly moved back to their alma
mater at The University of
Florida in Gainesville to retire.,
They told me they were moving
into the new university retire-
ment housing complex near
campus that offers many differ-
ent university activities like
access to classes, a performing
arts center and even a wood-
working shop. My question is
can you tell me if there are any
other colleges or universities
offering this same type of ser-
vice and where I can find them?
I'm a 68-year-old widower, and
this sounds like something I
would also like, but I can't han-


die the heat down in Florida. -
College-Bound Bob
Dear Bob,
There are actually about
20 university-linked retire-
ment communities through-
out the country and about
30 more in the planning or
building stages. Universities
like Michigan, Arizona, Penn
State and Notre Dame just to
name a few. If you're the type
of person who enjoys being
around young people and
values the concept of life-
long learning, this is a nice
option to consider.
Perfect retirement
The idea of a perfect
retirement is much different
today than it was 25 years
ago. Yesterday's retirees tend-
ed to be more interested in
leisure and recreation, while
today, the ideal retirement
trend is more about working,
staying active and personal
growth. That's where colleges
and universities come in,
by offering their alumni,
retired faculty and other
interested retirees a retire-


ment community lifestyle
that provides intellectual
enrichment with unlimited
social opportunities. And the
timing couldn't be better.
With more than 35 million
people currently over the age
of 65, and another 77 million
baby boomers rapidly
approaching retirement
age, it's a good time'to be
reaching out to a whole new
"senior" class.

Retirement housing
There's no standard blue-
print for university-linked
retirement communities.
Housing facilities and cost
will vary. For example, some
retirement communities
are built on campus, some
near by. Some offer rentals
(costing between $1,000 and
$3,000) while others may be
purchased. Some feature
single-family homes, condos
or apartments for indepen-
dent living only, while others
may offer life-care facilities
called continuing care retire-
ment communities (CCRC).
These provide independent
housing as well as assisted


living and nursing home care
for residents as they age.
CCRCs usually require a
hefty entrance fee (between
$100,000 and $1 million)
along with monthly charges
that may include meals, per-
sonal assistance, housing
services and medical care.
Campus amenities
The amenities will also
vary from college to college,
but most offer their residents
access to university classes
(to audit or work toward a
degree), campus cultural and
sporting events, libraries and
fitness facilities. Residents
will also have unlimited
social opportunities through
volunteering, tutoring,
mentoring, part-time teach-
ing or participating in
research projects.

Will power
Dear Savvy Senior,
My mom and dad are both in
the real estate business and
have done pretty well financial-
ly but are getting older now.
They are in their upper 60s and
they haven't taken the time to
get a will done. My mom says
she's afraid to get a will or trust
because she's not ready to die
yet. But with five siblings, two of
them not speaking, I really don't
want the mess or complications
of sorting things out after they
die. Any advice? Talked Out

Dear Talked,
Do you have a will drawn
up for yourself? If not, get
one, and show your mom
that getting a will doesn't
necessarily guarantee instant
death. But not getting one
does guarantee you and your
siblings along, drawn-out
mess. Also, keep in mind that
you're not alone. More than
40 percent of Americans
older than 50 don't have a
will, mostly due to procrasti-
nation. Here are some helpful
things to know.
Basic rules
SIf you die without a will, or
some other legal method to
transfer your assets, your
state will determine who gets
everything. In most states
your assets will pass directly
to your spouse or your child.
If you're not married and
have no children, it will be
distributed to your next of
kin. If the courts cannot find
your next of kin, then your
assets go to the state.
Need help?
Most people can create
their own wills without the
help of a lawyer. With good
self-help materials it's easy to
make a will that takes care of
basic concerns, such as leav-
ing a home, investments, a
small business and personal
items to your loved ones.
Here are two good places
to help you get started:
Nolo: offers great informa-,
tion including Nolo's Simple
Will Book ($31.99), and a do-
it-yourself computer software
program called Quicken
WillMaker Plus ($49.99).
Visit nolo.com or call (800)
728-3555.
Wills.com is an estate
planning Web site that can
help you create your own will
online ($29.99) or find an
estate planning attorney in
your area.
Savvy tip
If you have a blended fam-
ily or a complicated financial
situation (property that is
jointly owned) or if you have
assets of more that $1.5 mil-
lion, get help from a lawyer.
Who gets what
Simple instructions like
who inherits your money,
home and other large assets,
need only a will. But, if you
want to attach various condi-
tions, you might want to cre-
ate a trust within your will.


Trusts are more complicated
and expensive (between $750
and $2,000) to set up but can
offer some nice advantages.
Trusts allow your assets to go
directly to your heirs without
passing through probate.
And some types of trusts can
cut or eliminate estate taxes.
Sweating the small stuff
Siblings are more likely to
fight over mom's dishes and
dad's fishing pole than the
money. So, consider making
a list that spells out which
personal items go to whom,
sign and date the list, and
attach a copy to your will.
Updating and storing
It's a good idea to review
and update your will every
two or three years, especially
after any major life change,
like a death, remarriage or if
you move to a new state.
Also, be sure to store your
original will in a secure loca-
tion, such as a safe deposit


box. It's also a good idea to
keep a copy at home and give
a copy to someone you trust,
including your executor.

Holland America Line goes wild for salmon recipes


Cruise guests experience Alaskan destination
through cuisine, too.


PHOTO COURTESY OF HOLLAND AMERICA CRUISE LINE
Holland America's 1,266-passenger Veendam, shown docked in St. Thomas Harbor at Charlotte
Amalie, U.S.V.I., will be Alaska-bound Sept. 11, offering a salmon feast at nearly every meal.


STAFF REPORT

Holland America Line will
launch a new Alaskan culi-
nary experience on its seven
Alaska-bound ships during
the 2005 season. Holland
America Line's Master Chef
Rudi Sodamin has developed
an industry first with "Going
Wild for Salmon," which will
feature an extensive menu
rotation of Alaskan salmon
dishes during each cruise.
The "Going Wild for Salmon"
program will also include
special on-board culinary
events, cooking demonstra-
tions and seminars.
"I recently spent some
time in Anchorage and I real-
ized that when our guests dis-
embark in Alaska's ports, they
are met with fabulous salmon
preparations of all kinds,"
Sodamin' said. "Bingo! I
thought. We must bring more
of Alaska's delicious, fresh
favorite fish to our guests so
they can experience their,
Great Land adventure
through cuisine, too.
"Every night they will get a
whole new range of tasty
salmon choices from the
cruise line that offers more
Alaskan salmon dishes than
any other cruise line,"
Sodamin adds.
Sodamin and the Holland
America Line culinary team
developed 50 distinctive
recipes to showcase on din-
ner menus, which already
offer poached, sauteed or
baked salmon as an alterna-
tive to featured menu choic-
es. The "Going Wild For
Salmon" menu additions ,will
be available five nights a week
in the Main Dining Rooms,
Lido Restaurants 'and Pin-
nacle Grills on all Alaska
cruise ships.
"We are delighted to intro-
duce our guests to the world's
most intriguing destinations
through cuisine with this tai-
lor-made culinary program,"
said Rick Meadows, CTC,
senior vice president, market-
ing and sales. ,"Our culinary
team is always looking for
ways to deepen the experi-
ence for our guests and to
provide the authentic flavors


of the regions we visit. Our
guests can experience Alaska
with their eyes, their ears and
their palate."
"Going Wild for Salmon"
dishes will include both ap-
petizers and entrees, such as
Thin Salmon Scallops with
Fresh Herb Dressing, Hazel-
nut-crusted Salmon with Sor-
rel Sauce, Salmon & Lobster
Chowder, Salmon Baked in
Phyllo with Shitake Mush-
rooms & Champagne Sauce,
and Sesame Crusted Teriyaki
Salmon with Braised Bok
Choy & Sake Rice.
The leader in Alaska cruis-
es and CruiseTours, Holland
America Line will sail seven
ships on 134 cruises in 2005.
The company's premium
ships offer unmatched spa-
ciousness, carry fewer pas-
sengers than any other major
cruise line and offer the most
entries into Glacier Bay Na-
tional Park of all cruise lines.
Itineraries include seven-
day Alaska Explorer cruises
roundtrip from Seattle; Gla-
cier Bay Discovery journeys
between Vancouver, B.C., and
Seward, Alaska; and Glacier
Bay Inside Passage sailings
roundtrip from Vancouver.
Prices start at $729 per per-
son, double occupancy, for
the ms Veendam Sept. 11
departure.
About Holland
America Line
In 2005, Holland America
Line's fleet of 12, five-star, pre-.
mium ships are offering near-
ly 500 cruises from 27 home
ports 17 in North America.
Itineraries range in length
from two to 116 days, visit all
seven continents and offer
the most extensive selection
of ports the line has ever visit-
ed on cruises to the Carib-
bean and Panama Canal
(175), Alaska (134), Can-
ada/New England (18), and
longer, exotic voyages to Eur-
ope (45), Mexico (43), Ha-

Jan Oppenheimer, a cus-
tomer service manager at the
Teleflex Electronics facility in
Sarasota, has won the 2005
Chairman's Award from the
Teleflex Foundation. The
award provides a $10,000
grant to a Teleflex employee
who demonstrates commu-
nity leadership through vol-
unteerism. Oppenheimer, a
member of the executive
committee on the Humane
Society of Sarasota County's
board of directors, will give
the Humane Society of
Sarasota County $8,000; the
other $2,000 will be gifted to
an out-of-state animal shel-
ter.
"Teleflex employees are
doing great work in their
communities but Jan's record
of service and leadership 'is
very impressive," said Teleflex
Foundation Executive'.
Director Thelma Fretz. "She is
a wonderful role model for
others in the company."
Oppenheimer began vol-
unteering at the Humane
Society of Sarasota County in
1991 and was elected presi-
dent of the board of directors
in 2000. She stepped down
from the president's role in
January 2005. Oppenheimer
volunteers at the shelter to
support day-to-day opera-
tions and adoptions and uses
her management savvy to
help the shelter run effective-
ly. Under her direction, the
Humane Society of Sarasota
County's board evolved to
encompass a wide range of
dedicated, talented profes-
sionals who donate valuable
skills including law, finance,
fund-raising and marketing
services.
"Jan's dedication, passion
and leadership skills make
her a valuable asset to the
Humane Society of Sarasota
County and an outstanding


addition to the esteemed
group of Teleflex Foundation
Chairman Award winners,"'
said Fretz.
Oppenheimer is thrilled to
be able to do even more for
the organization she loves.
"Though I give what I can and
raise money, having the
opportunity to give a bigger
check is beyond anything that
I could imagine," she said.

DOCENTS from page 1 B
of Venice and Sarasota Coun-
ty and an opportunity to in-
teract with people from all
areas of the country."
Paul Intagliata does it
"because I've always enjoyed
meeting people and the inter-
play with the public." Betty
Intagliata is a docent "be-
cause I've always loved
imparting my love of history
to others." She served on the
Venice Historical Commis-
sion for 15 years and helped
found the Venice Area His-
torical Society in 1991. Before
Betty and Paul came to Venice
in 1981, she taught history
and social studies in Con-
necticut for 14 years.
John Osborne also taught
history for 36 years to high
school youth in New York
state. Co-author of five text-
books, he likes to relate local
history about train service
and its impact on this area.
Docent George Youngberg
Jr. never taught school but has
a special insight into the his-
tory of the depot and Venice.
His father, George Sr., was the
engineer in charge of laying
out Venice for the Brother-
hood of Lodomotive En-
gineers between 1925 and
1928. Later, his father became
mayor of Venice and a mem-
ber of the Florida Legislature.
A book Youngberg's father
co-authored with a local
writer covers the first four,
decades of the incorporated
city of Venice. It's available at
the depot for $3 as isa copy of
the June 1927 issue of The
Venice News, a magazine
originally published by the
BLE.
As for questions the do-
cents most frequently receive,
here are some:
How, did the BLE build a
city from scratch?,
When did the train service
cease?
What are the future plans
for the depot?
Why doesn't the county set
up the depot as a museum?
Why was the depot located
here rather than on the west

side of the Intracoastal?
Will they ever run a train
out of Venice to Sarasota?
What's the latest about the
Rails to Trails plan?
When will the Gunther
Gebel-Williams statue be
completed and dedicated?
Where is the Pullman Cir-
cus Car that was supposed to
come here?
Visitors also have many
other questions about the cir-
cus, the caboose and even
where to find a good restau-
rant in town.
Betty Intagliata said the
docents do more than edu-
cate the public about local
history. "They also gather in-
formation and even photos
from some of our visitors,"
she explained. "Because of
their efforts, we're building
the knowledge base about the
history of our community and
winning more support for the
Historical Society."
Personally, I was impressed
when docents Fuhrmeister
and Shrauger told us the
depot had two waiting rooms
separated by the central ticket
area. The larger of these
rooms is the "white waiting
room" while the smaller one
was known as the "colored
waiting room."
"Some people are shocked
to learn that the depot was


segregated," Shrauger said.
"They don't want to hear it
but that's the way it was."
Indeed it was not only in
Venice but in many other
parts of the country.
If you want the real McCoy
- not a watered-down
rewrite of history take a
docent-led tour of the historic
Venice Train Depot. You won't
be disappointed.
If you would like informa-
tion about becoming a
docent, contact Jerry Madden
,at (941) 496-9474. For more

Area Historical Society's tours,

More than 500,000 senior
citizens live in assisted living
facilities across the United
States.
Eight-three of them live at
Park Place Assisted Living
Facility in Venice.
Bill Theiss is one of them.
"I've lived here over 40
years, what would you ans-
wer to that? If I didn't like it
here, I'd be dead by now,"
answered Theiss, 95, when
asked how he enjoys living at
Park Place.
In fact, Theiss has lived at
Park Place since 1998 and
may have been referring to
the number of years he has
lived in Venice when answer-
ing that he lived "here" 40
years.
However, born on Nov. 11,
1909, Theiss seems to main-
tain most of his memory and
sense of humor.
Theiss says he was born in
Pittsburgh and spent most of
his life in Cleveland working
for Sherwin Williams Paint
Company. After retiring in


1965, Theiss

used as a dormitory for its
cadets.
After KMI closed in the
early 1970s the building re-
mained vacant until 1983,
when it was purchased by
Far South Developers LTD for
use as retirement housing.
After extensive renovation
the facility opened and
served as retirement housing
until 1988, when the current
owners Adult Care Manage-
ment Corporation acquired
the building, renaming it Park
Place.
Leonard Peck has been in
Park Place for just less than a
year. His wife currently still
lives in their home in Venice.
Peck enjoys living at Park
Place although he added, "I
kind of miss my wife, living
with her." Peck's wife visits
him every day.
Peck sits outside of Park
Place on a spacious patio
lined with rattan furniture
on a cool afternoon. He sits
alone and extends his hand
with enthusiasm to greet this
reporter.
Peck was born in "eastern
New Jersey" and worked at

1960s as a studio cameraman

Park has fond memories of


Walter Cronkite, managing
editor and anchor of the "CBS
Evening News" during that
time period. "Walter Cronkite
was a wonderful man. Mar-
velous. Wonderful."
Peck says he will spend
the afternoon sitting out-
side enjoying the beautiful
weather.
Assisted living in the
United States costs an aver-
age of $2,524 per month, or
$30,288 per year, according
to a 2004 MetLife market sur-
vey: of assisted living costs,
The highest monthly average
base cost was reported in
Stamford, Conn., at $4,327
while the lowest was Miami,
Fla., at $1,340.
All of the residents of Park
Place this reporter spoke
with enjoy their life at the
facility, citing things to do and
the wonderful people who
staff the facility.
In fact, there is a waiting
list to become a resident.
