But Kunk’s culinary history started in Sarasota, where he began working at Paul Mattison’s The Summerhouse at 14 years old. Kunk names Mattison, who wrote his letter of recommendation for the Culinary Institute of America, his mentor and moral compass. “When I landed in Blue Hill’s kitchen 10 years ago, I knew I found a special place,” the 33-year-old says.

THE LAST DAY

+ Bright lights Sarasota native and resident Bri Oliva made her TV debut May 7, on the “Rachael Ray Show.” Oliva was selected to participate in a segment called “Hidden Dangers on the Playground.” Oliva and her two children, Emma, 2, and A.J., 1, spent a full day with a film crew in Sarasota, then Oliva and her mother, Terri Saba, were whisked off to the Big Apple to be on the show. On the day of taping, Oliva was given her own dressing room. And after an on-camera rundown from the other show guest, Dr. Ian Smith, of what germs were found on the playground, Oliva and Saba were given time to enjoy the city before heading home to the Sunshine State. “All-in-all, it was a fantastic trip,” says Oliva. “I am grateful for the experience, which I will never forget. Given the chance to do it again ... I sure would.”

usan Chapman looks down at her silver flip phone. It says she has a missed call. It’s the one she’s been waiting for all day. The City Commission challenger steps outside the noisy gathering at Word of Mouth Café. It’s 7:14 p.m. on Election Night. The call is from Carol Reynolds, a key campaign volunteer assigned to send updates as voting results come in. Chapman tries calling Reynolds back, but there’s no answer. Chapman leaves a message. She paces. She waits five seconds, then calls back. This

time, Reynolds answers. “I had a missed call from you,” Chapman says. Outside, where it is quiet and the sun is descending, Chapman listens intently. She asks Reynolds to repeat some numbers. “OK, so it’s 100%?” she asks before hanging up. Chapman walks back inside the café. “It’s over,” she tells her supporters.

Terry Turner lobbied for a strong city manager role and redevelopment on the North Trail.

Terry Turner’s home desk is suspiciously clean — spotless and unadorned except for his cell phone sitting in the corner. That’s because Turner, a former economics professor and Bank of America corporate treasurer, has acquired the habit of clearing his desk after completing a big project to start the next one “with a clean slate.” Over the past four years, he has done so every Tuesday, af-

ter the regular City Commission meetings. But on the morning of Tuesday, May 7, Turner cleared his desk for the last time as a commissioner. Turner, 72 plans to take some time to recharge.

TURNER / FROM PAGE 1A stack of books waiting for him, which includes Orson Scott Card’s science fiction novel “Pathfinder.” “I still haven’t outgrown science fiction,” Turner says. The past four years have been busy, while Turner and fellow commissioners waded from one big issue to the next. They dealt with parking meters; redevelopment of the North Trail; and prioritized funding for $100 million in U.S. 41 roundabouts. But, for most of his single-term tenure on the commission, Turner focused on the city’s budgetary woes, emphasizing the financial climate and trying to bring about changes, such as revamping the city’s pension system — a change estimated to save taxpayers millions, but one that angered city police officers. “We probably never had an elected official who had the understanding of financial issues as Terry Turner did,” says Kerry Kirschner, executive director of the Argus Foundation and former mayor. Turner says he first decided to seek a City Commission seat in 2008 because he was aware of the fiscal problems and thought he could shed some light on the financial issues. After 35% of voters elected him in an April 2009 runoff election, the city’s fiscal plight remained his greatest concern — and his main focus.

Financial focus

During Turner’s tenure, commissioners approved a change that switched general employees from a pension to a definedcontribution plan. And in July 2012, after three years of heated meetings and discussions, the city cut a cost-of-living-increase adjustment on police pensions and delayed the pension increase until a retiree reaches 65. The changes to police officers’ pensions will save the city $132 million over 30 years, but it’s far from a complete solution to Turner’s most recent buzz phrase — “legacy cost-structure issues.” It is unlikely any kind of reform, however, would have taken place without Turner

BIO

Terry Turner From: Dayton, Ohio Age: 72 Favorite author: Isaac Asimov Children: Mark, 45, and Matthew, 47; four grandchildren Nonprofit involvement: The Nature Conservancy of Florida, past board chair; Sarasota County Environmental Sensitive Land Committee; Sarasota County Committee for Economic Development; President Ronald Regan’s Private Sector Survey on Cost Control on the commission, says Kirschner. “It started (with the prior commission), but I think I pushed it and kept it on the front burner,” Turner says about pension reform. Turner says the police-pension changes were necessary. “I’m certain our police department has a pension plan more generous than most employers,” Turner says. The fight about pensions led to a lengthy debate that angered police officers. The pension reform fight alienated Turner from one commissioner. Commissioner Paul Caragiulo clashed with Turner throughout the lengthy debate. Caragiulo says he agreed that pension reform was necessary, but he wanted to keep promises to current police retirees. When asked about Turner’s departure as a commissioner, Caragiulo had only one comment: “Good luck.” Turner worked closely with former city Finance Director Chris Lyons to reduce the city’s deficit, and he credits former City Manager Robert Bartolotta — who doesn’t get credit for much after he was ousted from City Hall in January 2012 — with recognizing Lyons’ talents and promoting him to finance director. Turner also led the push for what eventually became a charter amendment in November 2012 to prohibit the city from

investing in derivatives, complex financial instruments that can reap — or lose — money quickly. His experience as the managing director of First Union Corp.’s derivatives group in the 1990s, gave him knowledge of how problematic the complex financial instruments could be. In 2011, he says hundreds of cities lost billions on derivatives, and the city of Sarasota didn’t have the level of expertise required to use them prudently. In 2012, 60% of voters approved the referendum prohibiting the city from investing in derivatives.

Tough decisions

After Turner was elected in 2009, the new commissioner called Kirschner. Kirschner, along with some of the Argus Foundation’s directors, had opposed Turner during the campaign, in large part because of Turner’s earlier work supporting the neighborhood activists’ efforts to prevent the expansion of Sarasota County’s Urban Service Boundary development line. “I called Kerry Kirschner and I said, ‘I’d like to meet with you and the executive committee.’ I said, ‘I think I’m not the commissioner you expected I would be, and I would like to work with you,’” Turner says. Although Kirschner and Turner didn’t — and still don’t — agree on every topic, over time the two found common ground. Turner admired the Argus Foundation’s work studying how to run the Sarasota County School Board better and more efficiently. Kirschner thought Turner was right-on when he talked about the urgency of reforming the city’s pension system for both police officers and general employees. Turner lost some community support in August 2012, when he voted on the affirmative side of a 3-2 vote of an initial contract to sell a parcel of city land at the corner of Beneva and Fruitville roads. Turner’s rationale was the land was underused as a park. He felt a commercial project would give surrounding communities a needed economic boost. He acknowledges that, at the time, he

didn’t do a good job of explaining his vote. Recently, the public’s strong opposition of the project and millions in necessary traffic improvements now have Turner doubting if the project is a good idea. The vote was illustrative, Turner says, of one of his flaws as a commissioner. “One part of politics is running for office, and I was pretty good at that. That part is about explaining who you are what you want to do,” Turner says. “Another part of politics is looking at an issue and deciding what to do.” But there is a third side to local politics — a side much different than the corporate business world, and a side with which Turner says he struggled. “If I decide something based on analysis and data, I need to explain that to the electorate, and I admit I was not as good at that as I could have been,” Turner.

The past and the future

Turner says he’s proud of his involvement on the Sarasota-Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), which helped to secure funding for some of the planned roundabouts on U.S. 41. During his tenure, he would have like to have seen a Comprehensive Master Plan drawn for the North Trail, something the commission did not approve, instead opting for a North Trail Overlay District. Turner says a revamped U.S. 41 will be a first step for positive redevelopment. A master plan and a form-based code, Turner says, could make changes such as higher density in specific areas targeted for growth on the North Trail. Turner sees potential in Barwin, the new city manager. Looking ahead, Turner says the manager will need the commissioners’ support to succeed at a difficult post. Turner, who had supported Chapman during the campaign, says the results of Tuesday’s at-large runoff election are a good sign. He hopes the new City Commission will give the city manager and police chief “the option to manage better.” “It was the commission I hoped for,” Turner says.

ELECTION / FROM PAGE 1A whole heart,” Dorfman responds. This kind of voter interaction doesn’t come as a surprise to the second-time City Commission candidate; he’s included his contact information — including his cell phone number — in most of his campaign material. Dorfman has built his eightmonth election campaign around personal interaction with the community, and since qualifying for the runoff in March, he’s increased his efforts. His greatest chance at winning the election, he says, depends on showing voters, in person, who he is and for what he stands. “When I’m in front of people, and I get a chance to talk to them face to face, they get a different impression of me,” he says. “There’s a lot of misinformation about me out there — that I’m anti-neighborhood; I’m irrationally pro-business; I’m progrowth at any cost; I’m going to pave paradise. Once I have the opportunity to talk to them and explain my position, it’s hard for them to object.” His mission is clear on Election Day: reach as many voters as possible before they head into the polls. He’s aware of the difference one day can make in an election. In 2011, he missed qualifying for the runoff election by 16 votes. As he finishes his morning routine, he politely wraps up the phone call and makes his way downstairs to the guest parking lot. Donned in khaki pants and a royal blue polo shirt, he meets his campaign manager, Valerie Dorr. The two load a few-dozen signs into the back of Dorfman’s Cadillac SUV and drive to the Sarasota Municipal Auditorium to place a few signs before the polls open at 7 a.m. From here, they head to Precinct 209, located at First Presbyterian Church on Oak Street. The church is typically one of the busiest precincts in the city. Dorfman wants to catch the morning rush. He demonstrates his strategy almost immediately. After discussing his views on various issues with an on-the-fence voter, he successfully sways one person. “Every vote counts,” he says.

On Tuesday, Susan Chapman navigates to another voting precinct, where she met with one of her supporters.

outside the polls while Chapman runs back to her Hudson Bayou home to feed and let out her three Malteses, Abby, Lacy and Lucy. Chapman’s neighbor, Becky Tharpe, got to know Chapman two years ago when they both worked to keep a convicted murderer and rapist in prison. Another supporter, Cathy Antunes, is a downtown resident who ran for County Commission and is deeply involved in county politics. Erika Brigham just moved from Miami Beach, and she believes Chapman will work to protect the local environment here. All three agree about the decision made on the proposed Ringling Plaza Walmart. “It should never have gotten as far as it did,” Antunes says, noting that Chapman, as a planning board member, voted against the project, saying it was a department store and that type of development did not fit in the plaza’s zoning.

Logic to the madness

Around 1 p.m. Susan Chapman stops her off-white PT Cruiser at a stop sign and pulls a wrinkled map from the car floor. The map covers her steering wheel. “This is the hardest precinct to find,” she says just seconds before another car pulls up behind her and honks. Chapman drives forward off to the side of the road. Once stopped, she continues to read the map, which lists — in miniscule font — every neighborhood and each of the 18 voting precincts in the city. Once she locates Southside Baptist Church, on Magnolia Street, on the map, she puts the car in drive and heads out to U.S. 41. Today is anything but organized, as Chapman drives from precinct to precinct meeting with her volunteers and greeting voters. Although she has helped on several city campaigns, including Kelly Kirschner’s successful 2007 City Commission bid and Dick Clapp’s 2007 and 2011 campaigns, it’s Chapman’s first time running her own campaign. It’s different this time. “It’s a lot of multi-tasking,” Chapman says as she continues to drive. But, there is logic to the madness for Chapman, a lawyer and longtime neighborhood advocate who calls herself “dataorganized.” Chapman is headed to Southside Baptist , because she came in third at one of two precincts at the church during the general city election in March, capturing only 19.5% of the vote there. “That’s a tough one for us,” she said. A group of 15 volunteers holding signs and donning blue “Chapman for Sarasota Commission” T-shirts greets her at Southside. In the morning, Chapman visited Precinct 209, at First Presbyterian Church, and she spent a large part of the afternoon there. In March, she was in a virtual tie with Dorfman, with both candidates earning 24.4% of the votes cast at Precinct 209. (Chapman had 488 votes at Precinct 209; while Dorfman had 487.) The precinct covers downtown and some surrounding neighborhoods, including Hudson Bayou. Chapman agrees with Dorfman — every-

Richard Dorfman spent the day greeting voters at precincts around the city. He believes Election Day is crucial in gaining votes, and that it can have an effect on the outcome of an election. thing counts, even on Election Day, in a city where the 2011 commission election was decided by 14 votes.

Hard-fought battle

Since January, Dorfman and his campaign volunteers have been relentless in their efforts to reach the public. He estimates he’s personally knocked on more than 2,000 doors. The efforts have left him visibly exhausted, and between the stress and exercise, he’s shaved about 25 pounds from his physique. “Richard, if you lose any more weight, you’re going to blow away,” one voter at First Presbyterian jokingly says. Voter traffic is slow at the precinct, and close friend and campaign supporter, Linda Holland, offers to make a coffee run for Dorfman — his second caffeine boost of the morning. She returns from Dunkin Donuts with coffee — his with cream and sugar. The early indications of low voter turnout have Dorfman concerned. In his opinion, a low turnout will favor Chapman, and he anticipates a close race. He knows her neighborhood following is loyal and longstanding, and he hopes new voters and a higher turnout in the runoff will give him an edge. At the next precinct visit at St. Armands Key Lutheran Church, Dorfman continues his push to converse with voters, and he reiterates his belief that many people have an inaccurate perception of him and his ideas. His typically calm demeanor gives way to frustration as he begins to reflect on what he perceives as negativity and personal attacks against him throughout the election. “I’ve just seen so much hate,” he says. “It’s unbelievable. I’m a very pragmatic person. I’ve campaigned on the issues, but it seems like other people have decided to campaign on me as a person, and it’s gotten very personal. I think a lot of that is motivated by fear of change, or of losing control.”

Deep-rooted support

Chapman’s Election Day plan is to visit as many polling locations as she can. But, most important, she coordinates and relies on her loyal band of supporters wearing the blue shirts. Chapman had ordered 50 blue T-shirts saying “Chapman for Sarasota Commission” before the election. She ran out on Election Day and started giving out buttons. In total, Chapman had more than a 100 supporters, some who worked behind the scenes. Some called “super voters,” who, according to Supervisor of Election forms had not yet voted in the runoff, and some canvassed for Chapman in their neighborhoods. Chapman’s supporters range from some of the city’s most vocal neighborhood advocates whom she has known for years to new residents who feel Chapman’s message about protecting neighborhoods, fighting for compatible development and preserving the environment resonates with the kind of future they want to see for their city. On this sunny Election Day, one of Chapman’s supporters, 74-year-old Al Abrams, sits in a lawn chair in the shade outside the Robert L. Taylor Community Center, Precinct 115. Abrams greets both voters and those who don’t plan to vote. Abrams is involved in the Amaryllis Park Neighborhood Association, and he met Chapman when he was the neighborhood’s representative to the City Coalition of Neighborhood Associations (CCNA) in 2005. Abrams, wearing a blue Chapman shirt and an “I Voted” sticker on his faded Florida A&M hat, suddenly forgets he didn’t call his niece, who, according to the latest paperwork from the Supervisor of Elections officer, has not yet voted. Back at Precinct 209, just before 6 p.m., three Chapman supporters hold their signs

Final push

As the day fades to late afternoon, Dorfman and Dorr continue to visit precincts around the city to check in with volunteers and attempt to earn votes. The consistently low turnout, combined with hours of standing in the sun, adds to Dorfman’s exhaustion. He turns to Dorr, who reminds him the polls will close soon enough. “I feel like a personal trainer,” she says with a laugh. “I just keep pushing him. ‘Three more houses, Richard.’ ‘A few more hours, Richard.’” “I wouldn’t have made it this far without Suzette (Jones, Dorfman’s girlfriend) and Val,” he says. “Suzette has been my solace, and Val has been my motivator. She keeps me going.” With fewer than 30 minutes remaining until polls close, Dorfman prepares to head to his watch party at Patrick’s. “You know what’s really strange?” he asks. “In the next hour, the last eight months of work will be over, and I’ll either have the result I wanted, or I’ll go back to my old life.”

The winning moment

Chapman has just walked back into Word of Mouth and told her supporters, “It’s over.” After a silent moment, she says the final results are in: Atwell and Chapman were the top two vote-getters. Atwell had 38% of votes; Chapman had 32%. Several supporters yell, and everyone in the café, many wearing their blue “Chapman” shirts, take turns hugging and congratulating Chapman. Former Mayor Lou Ann Palmer and Chapman look over a printout of the final results. Chapman receives more congratulatory hugs. This was an old-fashioned grassroots campaign, and means a lot to me to have you as my roots,” Chapman says to her supporters, after news of the win. Supporter Edie Jones comes up to give Chapman a hug. “I was right,” Jones says. “It’s the two Susans. Or actually, Susan and Suzanne.”

Property investor Chris Brown purchased a two-story building at 1400 Main St., at the corner of Main Street and South Pineapple Avenue. Brown purchased the building, which consists of 7,000 square feet of property, from Kress International Plaza owner Harry Walia, for $2.65 million. The deal, which closed May 8, is Brown’s second investment downtown in the past year. In November, Brown purchased two Main Street office buildings, at 1718 Main St. and 1734 Main St., for $2.8 million. The property at 1400 Main St., bordering the southeast corner of the Five Points roundabout, fronts one of the most-walked sidewalks downtown. Brown said Floribbean, a restaurant and nightclub currently at that location, plans to relocate to a new location on Ringling Boulevard later this month. Brown said he does not have specific plans for the property. “It is a very special building, and I want whatever goes there to be compatible with the area,” Brown said.

TREAT PEOPLE RIGHT

5A

by Nick Friedman | Community Editor

THE GREAT COMMUNICATOR Retired Capt. Paul Sutton devoted his 29-year career with the Sarasota Police Department to the golden rule.

Born in St. Louis, Sutton moved in 1973 to Sarasota with his family.

Nick Friedman

Retired Capt. Paul Sutton began his career with the Sarasota Police Department in 1984. He graduated from Sarasota High School, and, like most of the men in his family, he served four years in the Army. Initially wanting to become a lawyer, Sutton took the police exam to give himself a more diverse background in law. “After I took the test, I discovered I loved police work, and I realized I didn’t want to do anything else,” he says. “I’d rather be the one catching the bad guy.” Sutton quickly moved up the ranks within the department. Solving a murder as a rookie

earned him a promotion to detective with just three years of experience on the force. As a detective, Sutton began to hone his ability to relate to suspects, and his ability to garner confessions earned him a reputation. He boasted a 100% conviction rate on every case he oversaw as the lead detective. “On TV, you see detectives screaming at people to get them to talk,” he says. “That never made sense to me. I tried to think about what would make me talk to the police. I never asked them if they

Sutton’s career spanned nearly every position and duty within the department. From homicide, he moved on to became a detective sergeant specializing in crimes against children, then on to lieutenant, commander of narcotics, captain and even acting police chief. Whether he was interviewing accused sexual predators, coaxing confessions from suspected murderers or intercepting duffel bags of cocaine from drug dealers on a boat in Venezuela, his ability to talk to people helped him become a strong leader who earned the respect and admiration of those around him. “I think that ability to communicate is important in any aspect of a career,” says Sutton. “My job as a supervisor was to help other people do their jobs, and that meant treating people the way I would want to be treated. I’m more proud of their work than of anything I did.” Perhaps Sutton’s biggest passion, especially in the latter portion of his career, was doing his part to solve Sarasota’s homeless problem. “There’s a lot of division over the issue in Sarasota,” he says. “People think it’s the rich condo owners against the homeless people. To me, there’s only one

side, and that’s getting these people the help they need without enabling them. That helps everyone.” Sutton’s passion for the issue is evident in his service. He was a founding board member of the Suncoast Partnership to End Homelessness, and he also serves on the Salvation Army’s advisory board. He was influential in creating the Salvation Army’s VIPER drug-and-alcohol recovery program in an effort to provide help to many of Sarasota’s homeless. Bryan Pope, general manager of the Salvation Army, says Sutton has been a valuable asset to the advisory board. “He’s a man of integrity, and he’s passionate about finding solutions to problems,” he says. “He’s not there for a plaque on the wall — he’s there to get the job done.” Although the reality of his retirement has yet to set in, Sutton says he knows it will be an adjustment. Most of all, he looks forward to having more time for his wife, children and grandchildren, and he hopes to continue serving on various boards to address homelessness and addiction. “Paul has had an enormous impact on Sarasota, in a very quiet way,” says Pope. “Although his career in law enforcement is coming to a formal close, we’ve not seen the end of him having a positive impact on the community by a long shot.”

Paul Sutton stood at the scene of a murder at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Pershing Avenue. Still a rookie officer, he was assigned to control the perimeter of the crime scene to ensure no one interfered with the police work. When a woman approached the young officer to tell him she knew who the killer was, Sutton recognized her from regular conversations during his patrols. Most officers tended to avoid her, but Sutton had developed a rapport with her, and she felt comfortable enough to confide in him. Sutton learned early on the importance of being able to relate to people. When he joined the Sarasota Police Department in 1984, a senior officer gave him a tip: Treat people right; if you arrest someone today, chances are, you’re going to deal with them again in the future. The advice helped Sutton solve that first murder case as a rookie officer, and it’s a skill he developed and carried throughout his career. Now, one week into retirement after 29 years with the SPD, Sutton reflects on his career in law enforcement, and the people skills that made him successful.

CONA opposes changes to Sarasota 2050 Plan

President Lourdes Ramirez says changes to the plan could increase taxes for Sarasota County residents.

During the Sarasota County Council of Neighborhood Association (CONA) meeting Monday, May 13, the organization’s president, Lourdes Ramirez, made a presentation about the group’s stance opposing changes to Sarasota County’s Sarasota 2050 Plan. Ramirez cited potential tax increases to residents as one reason she is concerned about changes to the Sarasota 2050 Plan. The current 2050 plan, approved in 2002, includes fiscal-neutrality conditions. Without fiscal neutrality, many of the costs of development would be passed along to taxpayers, Ramirez said. Ramirez expects environmental groups will also oppose changes to the 2050 Plan, which aims to keep a wildlife corridor east of I-75. When Sarasota County officials approved the 2050 Plan in 2002, they hoped to create urban-style, walkable villages in undeveloped areas of the county, particularly lands east of I-75.

 Ramirez said there seems to be more than enough proposed development already in line, when compared to the county’s anticipated population growth. Many county residents emailed commissioners prior to the commission’s 4-1 vote in favor of considering changes to the 2050 Plan, which happened during its May 8 meeting. “We were very disappointed in the County Commission,” Ramirez said at the CONA meeting. “By caving to the few dozen emails from

In a separate presentation

Bill Zoller said the grassroots, Open Our Elections, launched May 12, in an effort to reform county elections. Zoller, treasurer of Open Our Elections, said the organization is leading the campaign to make all county office elections non-partisan. Five other counties have nonpartisan county elections, Zoller said, and supporters of the change want to see elections here in Sarasota County where any resident can cast a ballot for county commission candidates and other county candidates running for office. “Really it would just make the county elections consistent with what we have in the city,” Zoller said.

ANOTHER DAY AT THE OFFICE 8 a.m. — 700 block of S. Washington Boulevard. Suspicion Panhandling. An officer was advised of a panhandler in the median. The officer observed the man, but didn’t see him collect any money. The man walked into a fast-food restaurant, and the officer left the area.

SAFETY FIRST 11:30 p.m. — 2100 block of N. Washington Boulevard. Petit Theft. A store manager reported a woman left the store without paying for a small box of Band-Aids.

HUM-DRUM CALL 2:54 p.m. — 700 block of Benjamin Franklin Drive. Suspicious Noise. A resident reported a loud humming noise in the parking garage of a resort. The resident did not want to meet with the officer, but told the officer to stand on the sidewalk to hear the noise. The officer could hear a humming noise coming from inside the parking structure. The officer entered the parking garage and positively identified the sound as a generator. The officer found no violation and spoke to the resort manager, who said the resort was involved in an ongoing problem with the condo nearby. No further action was taken.

NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH 11:43 p.m. — 1900 block of Magnolia Street. Suspicious Vehicle. An officer responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle parked in front of a home. When the officer questioned the car’s owner, the car owner said that a resident came out and became aggressive toward him. The officer told the car owner, who was visiting from New Hampshire, that residents are just looking out for their neighborhood and reporting when something appears suspicious. The owner said he doesn’t get harassed in New Hampshire.

LETTERS TO THEEDITOR

by Dr. David Rossin

Seniors oppose nuclear plants? Not so fast Lately it seems every interest group and political candidate trying to win a public debate wants to claim that “senior citizens are on my side.” As a senior, I’m flattered by this. But I’d rather these groups just stick to the facts and stop trying to exploit my advanced chronological status for their political gain. Sometimes, I know a good bit about the subject from my own experience. If we seniors must be drawn into the debate as a demographic group, perhaps we should provide some adult input for the discussion. An obvious case in point is the publicity about nuclear energy in Florida. It has ramped up recently, in part because of a well-managed campaign by out-of-town, anti-nuclear activists who have been trying to kill future nuclear plants by promoting legislation that would eliminate the current pay-as-you-go financing. Duke Energy fanned the flames after it decided to retire the Crystal River Nuclear Plant after 29 years of operation — even though that decision had nothing to do with new nuclear plant development or the proposed legislation to repeal existing financing laws. The nuclear opponents assume that senior citizens would support their cause. They figure that a typical elder Floridian would oppose new nuclear plants that do not generate electricity until eight to 10 years into the future, presumably beyond the point when this constituency is still alive. That is a grim view of my life expectancy. It is also an insult to assume that all of us seniors assess the merits of public works solely through the

selfish lens of our potential public use based upon a cold calculation of our life span. If these nuclear opponents were correct, seniors would be opposing development of other infrastructure that takes years to plan, develop and build, such as elementary schools, colleges, hospitals, water and sewer treatment facilities, roads or airports. These people are simply wrong about us. Our parents and grandparents invested in these necessary assets. We care about our children and grandchildren, whether they choose to live up the street or in a different state. Look, seniors do care about the future. We do care about clean air. We can see that nuclear power provides the one form of large-scale, base-load electricity supply with none of the smoke or sulfur dioxide emitted by coal plants and none of the CO-2 coal or natural-gas plants emit. We understand that these clean-air benefits will disappear if the activists persuade politicians to repeal legislation that helps to bring online future nuclear plants for us and our children. During my career, I have seen previous examples where pay-as-you-go financing for power plants was implemented, only to have opportunistic politicians lead repeals and cause their states to end up paying a steep price for years thereafter. Most of us seniors are wise enough to figure out that the current pay-asyou-go financing — also known in Florida as “alternative cost recovery,” or paying as costs are incurred — has saved billions of dollars that we would

9A

have had to pay for fossil fuel necessary to power the alternatives. Nuclear opponents have tried to promote a contorted image that the current financing law is a “nuclear tax.” Not so fast. We seniors are smart enough to figure out that politicians who vote for the current repeal effort would be voting to eliminate real cost savings and that would be the real nuclear tax on us. A single nuclear plant in Florida reduces CO-2 emissions by an estimated 255 million tons over the life of the plant. The activists have tried to ignore this. Not so fast. We seniors realize that politicians who vote for the current repeal effort would be voting for more air emissions, and that would be a tax on seniors’ health. As a senior, I am not swayed by antinuclear campaigns or even misguided endorsements by the AARP or any other political group. When you see further reporting by anti-nuclear activists, politicians and associations claiming that we elderly persons don’t care about the future, we don’t care about clean air, we don’t care about electric bill cost savings, and we support legislation that would eliminate these benefits we get from nuclear energy, tell them “not so fast.”

+ Two-lane Fruitville support Dear Editor: I support Commissioner Shannon Snyder’s efforts to change Fruitville Road from four to two lanes in the blocks approaching US 41, to encourage development north of Fruitville Road. I probably would not have understood this suggestion had I not attended author Jeff Speck’s lecture in March, when he came to Sarasota. I later read his book, “Walkable City.” After that, I began thinking about Speck’s suggestions.  I realized when driving on Fruitville Road that there are many antique, furniture and other stores that I hadn’t even noticed while whizzing by at 35-plus miles per hour.  I saw pedestrians standing bored on the side of the road, waiting for the long light to change so that they could cross the four-lane highway. I came around to the idea that, although there could be a delay for me as a motorist at times, there would also be an expansion of the downtown with a whole new openedup area north of Fruitville Road.  I’d suggest to anyone who opposes this idea to first read “Walkable City” to understand the thinking underlying this suggestion. I am glad Commissioner Snyder has the vision to understand it and propose further exploration of this idea. Joan Lovell Sarasota

Francesca Martel tosses a tennis ball over her head and winds up for an overhand serve. Her racket connects with the neon ball with a satisfying “thwack,” and the serve clears the net and lands near the back of the court. She and her coach exchange a smile, and she leaves the court to make room for her sister, Elizabeth, who demonstrates an equally impressive show of skill. “I think they’re ready,” says their coach, John Cesar, of Special Olympics of Florida, Sarasota County. This weekend, the sisters, ages 15 and 14, respectively, will join 29 other Sarasota athletes as they head to the Special Olympics State Summer Games, in Orlando. Other events include bocce, track and field, cycling and soccer. For the last few months, the girls, along with six other athletes, have met weekly in Arlington Park, where Cesar has coached them to develop their skills and techniques, including serves, groundstrokes and basic hand-eye coordination. But, Cesar says the experience is about more than just tennis fundamentals. “It builds their confidence, and it teaches them about commitment,” he says. “It’s great to see their improvement over the season, in tennis and socially.” Francesca and Elizabeth began participating in Special Olympics eight years ago, at the suggestion of a family member. Over the years, they’ve competed in swimPork ming, gymnastics, bowling Spareand Ribs equestrian Frozen a few trips to the events, and they’ve made Costillas de cerdo

ARCHIVES

by Yaryna Klimchak | Community Editor

MOMENTS IN TIME The Observer takes a look back at this week in Sarasota’s history.

1973

MAY 17. David Graue once drew Alley Oop cartoons on the front porch of his Siesta Key home, which overlooked the white sands and blue water of the Gulf of Mexico. V.T. Hamlin created Alley Oop, a syndicated comic strip, in 1932. The comic consisted of the life of a caveman. Hamlin used the cartoon as satirical commentary on suburban American life. Hamlin saw Graue’s talent and pulled him into the world of Alley Oop, and, then, after Hamlin died in 1973, Graue continued to draw the popular comic strip through the ’70s and ’80s. Graue retired in 2001. He died later that year, when a dump truck hit his car in Flat Rock, N.C. At its peak, 800 newspapers carried Alley Oop, and, it was one of 20 strips showcased in the Comic Strip Classics series of commemorative U.S. postage stamps.

1995

MAY 18. The SarasotaManatee Airport Authority packed the auditorium May 16, 1995, to discuss the controversial proposals to raise parking fees and to expand the runway at the airport. Among other rate changes, commissioners voted that the 24-hour rate be increased from $7.50 to $8; they increased maximum daily rate for one to seven days from $4 to $5. Also, the decision to submit a $161,000 environmental impact study for runway expansion to the Federal Aviation Authority was approved in a 6–2 vote, after 90 minutes of discussion. Airline executive Edward Stanley said expanding the runway would lead to additional national and international flights. The proposed expansion generated opposition from neighbors and caused the authority to delay its approval for a month.

13A

1972

MAY 15. The Pelican Press placed an ad in the paper, which was then called the Key News, encouraging Siesta Key community members to help rename the paper. Community members had until June 15, 1972, to come up with a more catchy newspaper name and for a chance to win a gift certificate of $25 to any of the newspapers advertisers.

Cameron Smalley was named the Taylor Emmons Scholarship Fund’s third scholarship recipient May 6. SARASOTA — Cameron Smalley didn’t think anything of it. It was a typical Saturday afternoon, and the 14-year-old second baseman and his Bradenton 14U Sun Sox teammates were in the middle of the Nations Spring Slam Championship, at Lakewood Ranch Park. It was baseball as usual for the Sarasota Middle School eighth-grader, and Cameron patrolled the infield with a quiet confidence that comes with having played America’s favorite pastime for the better part of the last nine years. There, on the diamond, Cameron felt entirely in control. But, outside the dugout, Cameron’s mother, Tammy, was harboring a secret —  one she had been keeping to herself most of the afternoon. Only after umpires called the final out and he walked over to see his parents did Cameron learn his life had changed in a matter of innings. An elated Tammy Smalley told her son he had just been named the Taylor Emmons Scholarship Fund’s third scholarship recipient. “I was shocked,” Cameron says. “I couldn’t really talk. I was just so happy. It’s an honor to just represent their family and to follow Taylor Emmons, who was a really good person.” Tammy Smalley agrees. “We were very shocked,” she says. “We don’t have that kind of luck. We knew they liked him, but it felt like forever.” Cameron always assumed he would be going to Riverview High School next fall. But, about four months ago, Cameron’s mother approached him about Out-ofDoor Academy. “I had always known about ODA, but it wasn’t in the cards,” Tammy Smalley says. “The public high schools seem so big to me. I know he would’ve been fine, but I thought he would’ve done way better in a smaller setting. He’s a pretty special guy.” After learning more about the school and its baseball and academic programs, Cameron knew ODA would be the perfect fit. “I wanted to go to ODA because of how many kids get good scholarships to colleges; and the baseball program is developing and starting to get really good,” he says. “Overall, it’s a great school.” Cameron spent a day shadowing at ODA, before applying for the Taylor Emmons Scholarship in mid-February. He filled out an application, wrote a couple of essays and took a reading, math and writing test at the school. He then spent two months waiting to hear back. After receiving the scholarship, Cameron met with the ODA baseball coaching staff and attended the Thunder’s final three

Cameron Smalley, 14, who will play baseball for ODA next year, attended the Thunder’s final three games of the season. Cameron says he is eager to get to know his future teammates. games of the season, including its district championship victory over Cardinal Mooney. “It was pretty cool,” Cameron says. “I knew those would be my teammates and coaches who I would be playing for. It was cool to see what everyone was like.” Cameron began playing baseball when he was 5 years old and transitioned to travel ball four years later. Since then, Cameron, who plays for Sarasota Babe Ruth Baseball and the Sun Sox, has developed a passion for the game. “I really want to try and play baseball professionally,” Cameron says. “I just really want to go as far as I can with baseball.” Two years ago, Cameron won the Sarasota County Cup Championship Home Run Der-

by, after hitting 14 home runs. Cameron and another player were tied in the final round of the competition, before Cameron ultimately pulled away to win the title. “It was a battle,” Cameron says. “I was just hoping to hit one home run and make it past the first round. I was one of the smallest kids out there, but I ended up doing really good and winning. It was pretty cool.” Now, the slugger is eager to join a Thunder team that has reached the postseason each of the past three seasons. He hopes to elevate his game to the next level. “I’m just really happy I’m going there,” Cameron says. Contact Jen Blanco at jblanco@yourobserver.com.

This season meant a lot. It was one of the only times that I’ll (probably) have a chance to make it that far. I was happy, and the seniors and coach Lee were happy about it. That was one of the reasons why we wanted to make it to states.

Siesta Key Village...

I knew there were times when it was going to come down to me to get the hits that we needed. We have a batting cage at my house, so I practiced a lot.

I always used to play shortstop when I was younger and I was pretty good at it. Now I catch, play center field and play pretty much anywhere in the infield except first base.

People who know good food know Miguel’s on Siesta Key

French & continental cuisine

I started playing baseball when I was 6 years old. I saw my older brother playing, and it looked like fun. I grabbed a bat and my dad put me into baseball. I would rather be batting than in the field. I always love to hit the ball and find the pitches to get the runs in.

If you consider yourself a gourmand you owe yourself a leisurely visit to Miguel’s for some of the best french continental cuisine in southwest Florida. This little gem, tucked away in a tiny shopping center just south of the Stickney Point Bridge, has everything going for it. Longevity for one. It’s been around for 29 years, owned and operated by the Garcia family with the utmost care and affection. Certainly, the Early Dining menu, available from 5-6:30 pm every night, is a distinct cut above from what we have experienced in other restaurants. Prices range from $16.95 for the Veal Marsala to $17.95 for the Roast Duck and Lamb Chops to $18.95 for the Coquilles Mornay. But these dinners include a fabulous salad, fresh garlic bread, fresh vegetables, potatoes du jour, a sumptuous dessert, and coffee. What’s so stunning about this is the quality of food and professional service you get at Miguel’s. We were in on a Sunday night around 5:30 and the restaurant was filled to capacity with diners obviously “in the know”. There were 15 entrees on the early dining menu. If you prefer to dine later, Miguel’s is famous in the area for superb Chateaubriand, Dover Sole and Caesar Salad, prepared tableside. The Tournedos Diane and Veal Oscar are often cited by gourmands as “the best” in the area. And if you have a favorite dessert, like Cherries Jubilee or Crepes Suzette, just give Miguel’s 24 hours advanced notice and they will make it for you! There is a full bar with ample portioned drinks and fine wines to accompany your meal. The atmosphere is decidedly old world, reminiscent of a fine European inn. What you may not know is that Miguel’s can be reserved for private party luncheons, as well. You’ll find this epicurean delight at 6631 Midnight Pass Rd. in the Crescent Plaza.

Sarasota Middle School student Zachary Rafael

• Residential Lending • Business Banking • Personal Banking • Association Services • Cash Management Services

THURSDAY, MAY 16, 2013

Zachary Rafael may only be in the seventh grade, but he’s already made strides in educating students and the public about the harmful effects of tobacco. Zachary is president of Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) at Sarasota Middle School. The group uses fun activities to educate students about the effects of smoking. Zachary’s advocacy started on a personal level: Both of his parents used to smoke. Since he joined SWAT, his mom has kicked the habit, and his dad is slowly quitting, too. “Being around it gave me headaches and just made me feel nauseous,” Zachary says. He tries to set a good example for his younger sister, Brianna, and helped organize Kick Butts Day, a carnival day that educates young people about tobacco through rides and games. The Sarasota Coalition on Substance Abuse awarded Zachary the Shining Star Award in March, for his diligent work to create positive changes in his school and community. “It doesn’t matter how old you are,” Zachary says. “You can do whatever you want, as long as you put your mind to it.” — Yaryna Klimchak
