+ Lil’ philanthropists Twin brothers Zachary and Evan Rubin, 8, sold art creations they made May 15, at Urfer Park. The brothers were raising money for the Kids to Kids Backpack Program. The twins’ parents agreed to match the funds raised to help the boys give back to less-fortunate children. The twins raised $1,714 with the matching funds from their parents. The proceeds will sponsor 18 backpacks for the school year.

+ So who’s counting? Sarasota resident Renée Sheade celebrated her birthday May 16, a few days early, at Michael’s On East. Long-time friend Jeannette D’Angelo organized the birthday luncheon. This year’s gang included Sheade’s friends Terri Blumberg, Betty Schiff, Charlene Carstens, Joan Mendell, Joy Server, Dottie Garner, Helen Sherman and Sandy Greenberg. D’Angelo has been planning birthday bashes for her friends for 27 years. It is estimated Sheade has been the greatest recipient, with about 26 birthday cakes. This year is D’Angelo’s swan song in that role, however, because she will be moving to Charlotte, N.C., in the near future.

Longboat Key resident Harold Ronson and Thomas Savage, founder of the Sarasota Public Art Fund
It started at the first World Series game at Yankee Stadium in October 2001, one month after the 9/11 tragedy. Up on the jumbotron, fans watched images of American heroism. One of them was the iconic raising of the flag on Iwo Jima. Longboat Key resident Harold Ronson, 86, poked the man standing next to him at the stadium and said, “I saw that flag go up.” A young man overheard Ronson and asked him where the flagraising took place. Ronson said he polled about 10 other people
that night, stunned to learn how few of them knew of Iwo Jima. “I’ve got to do something,” Ronson told himself. So he is. At Monday’s Memorial Day ceremonies at J.D. Hamel Park, in Sarasota, Mayor Shannon Snyder singled out Ronson and Thomas Savage, founder of the Sarasota Public Art Fund, to announce their efforts to bring another iconic World War II monument to Sarasota’s bayfront.

Projected budget deficit: $6 million Rising pension costs make up a large part of the city deficit. The city manager and finance director seek ways to trim costs.
Sarasota City Manager Tom Barwin and Finance Director John Lege will spend the next few weeks with department heads for daily budget meetings. The mission: To begin paring down a projected $6 million budget deficit by trimming department budgets. Barwin and Lege seek to oper-
ate city services more efficiently, collaborate more with the county and trim costs. Barwin and Lege had originally estimated a property value increase for the city of 1.5%. That number would have resulted in an anticipated general fund revenue hike from $54 million in 2012-2013 to $55 million for the
upcoming fiscal year. But, when the property appraiser released preliminary assessed value for citywide properties May 29, the values increased 3.5%. If commissioners decide to keep the same millage rate used in 20122013, the city would see an additional $622,000 in property tax revenue, Lege said.
“It’s not going to save anything,” said Commissioner Paul Caragiulo. “It is a good indication that properties are coming back, and we are about to come out of this malaise. But it’s not party time.” The largest contributor to the project deficit is an anticipated $3.9 million increase in the city’s pension costs.

Ronson and Savage are on a mission to acquire sculptor Felix de Weldon’s original 1945 bronze Iwo Jima monument. On Memorial Day, Savage launched a pledge campaign to collect the necessary money to buy the 20-foot tall statue, install it permanently and maintain it. All it takes is $1.6 million. And, already with the mayor’s support, they want to place the 10,000-pound sculpture next to Sarasota’s other popular World War II icon, the Unconditional Surrender statue, and do so in a new plaza suitable for lasting preservation. “I can’t think of a greater salute to our Marine Corps veterans, all veterans and the greatest generation,” said Sarasota Mayor Shannon Snyder. Ronson and Savage think they can pull it off. Savage spearheaded efforts to raise $500,000 each to bring Unconditional Surrender and the Complexus sculptures to the bayfront. “All of the people we have spoken with have been electrified by this idea,” Savage said. On May 29, Savage received a “substantial” first pledge from a resident, and he had two more appointments in the coming weeks with interested donors who “could be significant contributors.” The Iwo Jima sculpture was stored, and forgotten, in a New York warehouse for more than 50 years, until Marine historian Rodney Hilton Brown discovered in the early ’90s, Salvage said. It was finally restored in 1995. “It is the original Iowa Jima sculpture,” Savage said. “It had been lost for 50 years.” The British fine-art auction house of Bonham listed the Iwo Jima monument, currently in storage in Connecticut, for auction in February for $1.2 million to $1.8 million. It didn’t sell. Ronson found out about it from his daughter. “She called me like it was a joke,” he said. But ever since late February, Ronson has broached with friends the idea of bringing the monument to Sarasota’s bay-

front. Many of his friends have kindly expressed they think it’s a fool’s mission. Ronson is serious. For one, the events of Iwo Jima are etched on his mind. He was part of the Navy’s Amphibious Forces, and during the invasion of Iwo Jima, he was one of the sailors charged with taking U.S. Marines of the Fifth Division from ships to Iwo’s shores. After the incident at Yankee Stadium, Ronson has become increasingly involved in preserving the memories of World War II. He is on the board of directors of the Institute of World War II and the Human Experience, based at Florida State University. “You ask why?” Ronson says. “Every time I go by the park and see all those people (at the Unconditional Surrender), I think about it, about helping preserving all that we did — all everyone did — in World War II.” Sarasota architect Christopher Gallagher is working on a plaza design that would stand next to Unconditional Surrender on Sarasota’s bayfront and the sculpture. Plans for the plaza include a protective barrier and a floral garden, Savage said. “Hopefully, in three weeks, I will take to city commissioners our formal proposal for gifting this sculpture to the city and a site plan for the plaza,” Savage said. Snyder believes Sarasota would be missing an opportunity if it couldn’t land the piece. He also predicts the sculpture will not draw the opposition that Unconditional Surrender did. “Much of the debate about Unconditional Surrender was that it was a copy or replica,” Snyder said. “This (Iwo Jima sculpture) is the original that every one around the world is based off.” — City Editor Roger Drouin contributed to this story

Downtown merchants welcome changes Merchants hope streetscape improvements, less panhandling and the strengthening economy bode well for the downtown’s future. Downtown merchants have seen a strong tourist season, and they hope upcoming streetscape improvements to Main Street and less panhandling economy — will bode well for a brighter future. “I applaud our city manager for what he is trying to do and our new chief of police for taking on the issues,” said Ron Kennedy, co-owner of Kennedy Studios, 1472 Main St. Kennedy saw a 14% uptick in sales, attributed in part to a greater number of seasonal residents buying prints and frames. “We had a good enough season that we will survive this summer,” Kennedy said. “For last three or four years, we weren’t sure we would make it through the summer.” The gallery’s staff shrank over the past five years, from five fulltime, including Kennedy and his wife, Debbie Mitchell, and one part-time employee down to Kennedy and his wife and one part-timer. “We’re back to being a mom and pop the way we were 20 years ago,” Kennedy said. But Kennedy said the past season, roughly from December to May, was probably the best for sales over the past three years. Popular items sold included driftwood carvings and a 6-foot-wide framed photograph of Sarasota’s skyline. “That photo is in Cleveland, Indiana and New York,” Kennedy said. “Snowbirds will put in their office. It’s a piece of Sarasota.” Georgia Court, owner of Bookstore1 Sarasota, 1359 Main St., said she saw an estimated 20% uptick in sales. “We get a mixture of locals and tourists and snowbirds because of where we are located,” Court said. Court is excited for the second phase of a $1.9 million downtown improvement project that will add wider, brick sidewalks to lower Main Street. “I am so glad that finally got going,” Court said of the project. “It’s a pretty busy section of side-
walk, and widening it is going to really help.”
In addition to infrastructure improvements designed to make downtown a more walkable and pleasing place for shoppers and diners, the city may soon be considering some other programs to help new and existing small businesses thrive downtown. One of those would be a storefront-improvement program that would give grants to downtown stores and businesses to renovate and improve their storefronts. A similar program in Greenville, S.C., was popular when it was implemented in 2002. The city ran out of its $140,000 funding for the program the first year, said Norman Gollub, Sarasota’s downtown economic development coordinator. The program continued and is still in effect. Gollub, who took the EDC job in December, worked on economic development in Greenville from 1998 to 2004. “It’s an economic-development tool,” said Gollub. “It helps improve the appearance of Main Street. It helps bring customers into an attractive storefront.” Gollub, who spent six years in Greenville helping reduce commercial vacancies and bring in redevelopment downtown, said the storefront program is one way to help ensure existing and new businesses survive downtown. He points to Durham, N.C., where city officials say for every $1 in public funding spent on façade improvements, a business owner has invested an average of $10 to $12 to improve their business through upgrades. One model would provide 20% of a storefront-improvement project’s cost, up to $10,000. The storefront grants and loan program would likely be funded through the city’s Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) funding. Gollub will pitch the proposals to the Community Redevelopment Area Advisory Board, which makes recommen-

dations to the City Commission. Other possible programs include expedited plan review and impact fee abatement for new businesses and a revolving loan fund for startups and existing businesses. The city would loan funds to businesses, and, as the loans are repaid, the city would be able to replenish the program, Gollub said. Recently, a retail business owner from England came to Sarasota and asked Gollub what kind of incentives the city offers to new businesses downtown to help set up interior space or install new signage. Gollub had to tell the prospective business owner there will not be any such incentives. “I think he is still going to go through with opening the business,” Gollub said, “but it makes a little bit of a difference if there are incentives.” Such programs would give a boost to a downtown that is already attracting attention from prospective new businesses, Gollub said. “Small businesses are the heartbeat of downtown Sarasota,” Gollub said.
brick bulbouts On a warm day in May, a dozen customers sat at the tables outside C’est La Vie on Main Street, in the shade. Come August, after a contractor wraps up the first phase of the city’s $1.9 million sidewalk improvement project, C’est La Vie will have 276 more square feet of new brick outdoor dining space, enough room to add four or five additional tables. That phase of work will cost $150,000. “It will be an improvement,” says owner Christopher Coutelle said. “It will be better during season.” In front of C’est La Vie, an area of unused asphalt adjacent to parking spaces will be replaced
with brick pavers to match the existing sidewalk café area in front of the restaurant. During the improvement project three parking spaces will be removed during the first phase of work, while more than 1,100 square feet of sidewalk and café space will be added to three sections of Main Street. The project, initially slated to begin May 28, was delayed after the project’s engineer had to make structural changes to stormwater inlets. City officials decided to hold off on the project because they didn’t want construction work to interfere with the Fourth of July celebration and downtown boat parade, Richard Winder, Sarasota CIP project coordinator, wrote in an update
email to city staff. Spectrum Underground will begin work again July 8. In addition to C’est La Vie, the sidewalk and café area in front of Pastry Art will be expanded around existing trees. The café will get an additional 337 square feet of bricked outdoor space. The area in front of Gator Club will see the largest increase in sidewalk space, with an additional 545 square feet of pavers. A seldom-used right-turn lane on Main Street will be abandoned to make way for the expanded sidewalk. Mid-Main Street and sidewalks will remain open during construction. Outdoor seating, however, will be disrupted as the three bulbouts are constructed.

Florence Katz shows giving knows no age limit Home Instead Senior Care honored the 97-year-old Sarasota Bay Club resident with the Florida Salute to Senior Service award.
Florence Katz has volunteered at the Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Sarasota-Manatee for the last 17 years.
Don’t be fooled by Florence Katz’ slight stature — the petite 97-year-old has a giving spirit large enough for someone at least twice her size, and she now has the accolades to prove it. Home Instead Senior Care recently named Katz, a Sarasota Bay Club resident, Florida’s Salute to Senior Service award winner for her volunteer work at the Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Sarasota-Manatee. Every Wednesday and Friday, for the last 17 years, Katz has volunteered as part of the Senior Outreach Service program, which serves more than 120 homebound, isolated seniors and caregivers. The program offers these seniors transportation, group therapeutic counseling sessions, lunch and an entertainment program. Each week, the ever-elegant Katz, usually
dressed in high heels, sets the tables for lunch, hands out coffee and cookies and makes sure the meals look attractive. “I always look forward to my volunteer days,” says Katz. “I love every minute of it, and I love every participant.” Katz began volunteering at JFCS nearly 18 years ago, after retiring from the choir she helped form at Temple Beth Israel. One day, Katz was eating lunch with her friend, Alice Taich, then chairwoman of the JFCS board, and she brought up the topic of volunteerism. “My husband had just passed away, and I was looking for a way to get involved,” says Katz. “I told her I wanted to get involved with something really good and do something different. She suggested I come volunteer at JFCS, and I fell in love right away.”
Katz continued to serve in the Senior Outreach Service program, where she says she’s formed many lasting relationships. When fellow volunteer Amanda Cattaneo asked Katz if she could nominate her for the award, Katz was convinced she stood no chance. Tuesday, May 14, Katz learned she had been selected out of all the senior volunteers in the state and that Home Instead Senior Care would donate $500 to JFCS in her honor. “I’m very humbled,” she says. “I still can’t believe it, but I’m honored. A lot of people are fortunate enough to be able to give financially, but to be able to give of yourself is an amazing feeling. As tired as I am after volunteering, it makes me so happy that I’m fortunate enough to do this.”

Gwen MacKenzie, president and CEO of Sarasota Memorial Health Care System, has been named in Becker’s Hospital Review’s “100 Leaders of Great Hospitals of America.” The list was released May 20. “As president and CEO of Sarasota Memorial Health Care System, Ms. MacKenzie leads the only public hospital in Southwest Florida, named among the 50 best hospitals in the nation by Healthgrades in 2011,” the magazine’s list reads. “She previously worked for 25 years at Detroit Medical Center as an advanced practice oncology nurse and later as interim CEO of the system.”
During its regular meeting May 21, the Sarasota County Commission approved a $7.7 million contract amendment for construction for phase two of the new Gulf Gate Library at the site of the existing library, 7112 Curtiss Ave. Lakewood Ranch-based Willis A. Smith Construction Inc. will oversee and manage the building of the 25,800-square-foot, two-story library. Construction is expected to start in June and be completed in late summer 2014. Commissioners originally contracted with Willis A. Smith in June for preconstructionmanagement services during phase one of the project. The phase one contract was $65,000 and included reviews of design and construction elements, value engineering, preparation of project estimates, bidding assistance and construction administration. The May 21 contract amendment includes a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) for construction of the library. The

infrastructure surtax (one-cent sales tax) and library impact fees will provide the funding for the construction of the new library. The library has been at the Curtiss Avenue site since 1983. In February, Gulf Gate Library moved to temporary quarters at the southern end of the Westfield Sarasota Square Mall, 8201 S. Tamiami Trail. The new library will offer lending, reference and children and youth services; public access computers and wireless Internet access; informational and educational programs; automated book returns and sorting; and community gathering places, such as meeting rooms.

+ Quay property settlement reached in foreclosure lawsuit A foreclosure lawsuit holding the city’s premier piece of vacant land in litigation was settled May 24. A settlement was reached during the trial before 12th Circuit Court Judge Charles E. Williams. The settlement marks an end to the longstanding dispute between lender Anglo Irish Bank Corp. and the previous owners, including Patrick Kelly, a Dublin developer, and partners. Over the past few weeks, before the recent court hearing, a handful of investors and developers had shown informal interest in the property at the city’s planning department. The Quay land, at 333 N. Tamami Trail, is considered one of the best tracts for development statewide, with bay views and close proximity to downtown and upscale hotels such as the Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota and the Hyatt Regency Sarasota. In March, West Palm Beach-based the Kolter Group submitted plans for a twotower hotel and condo project just south at the corner of U.S. 41 and Gulfstream Avenue.

+ Street Teams program marks one year anniversary The city of Sarasota, in partnership with The Salvation Army, launched the Street Teams program, a homeless initiative, one year ago May 24. Street Teams helps homeless individuals find permanent housing and employment. To date, 63 individuals who recently lived on the streets in Sarasota now have a safe place to call home and are employed as a direct result of the Street Teams program. The Street Teams initiative was designed to assist the homeless by providing them with housing and job experience, while simultaneously helping them acclimate to the responsibilities associated with a stable work life, including punctuality and meeting job-performance expectations. So far, 122 homeless individuals have participated in the program, with a 51% graduation rate. Of those who have graduated, all, except one, have landed jobs and moved into housing.
Virgil, a 32-year-old Sarasota native, is a recent Street Teams graduate. A recovering homeless alcoholic, he learned about the program while serving a sentence in the Sarasota County jail for a child-custody issue. With no post-jail plan for employment or housing, Virgil was deemed a good candidate for the Street Teams program. He transitioned into the program and immediately started changing his life, according to a press release from the city. He’s now bussing tables and earns enough money to pay his monthly rent at a sober living house, where he just marked 19 months being sober. “I’d be sleeping on the streets right now without the Street Teams,” Virgil said. The city of Sarasota is providing an $80,000 grant toward operating the program: $40,000 in Tax Increment Funds from the Downtown Community Redevelopment Agency and $40,000 in Tax Increment Funds from the Newtown Community Redevelopment Agency.

THURSDAY, may 30, 2013
Sarasota Memorial Hospital CEO speaks on adaptability
At our new Bee ridge LocAtion
The Argus Foundation hosted its “Meet the Minds” luncheon Wednesday, May 22, at The Francis. Featured guest speaker Gwen MacKenzie, CEO of Sarasota Memorial Health Care System, addressed her intentions to keep the facility a world-class hospital, even in a changing medical and political environment. Sarasota Memorial Hospital holds a Healthgrades ranking as one of the nation’s top 1% of hospitals, and MacKenzie says she hopes to maintain the elite ranking. Specifically, she focused on the consequences of the Florida House of Representatives’ decision to pass a limited health care bill, which will only provide coverage to 10% of the 1.1 million Floridians who would have been covered under a more comprehensive plan. MacKenzie expressed concern for the 60,000 uninsured people in Sarasota County. Of the hospital’s 100,000 yearly emergency room visits, she estimates half those patients have no insurance and rely on the emergency room as a primary health-care provider. This shifts health care away from a prevention-focused model. MacKenzie says a more comprehensive plan would actually be a serious economic driver in Sarasota County, and she says SMH will continue to advocate for it. She encourages the business community to follow suit.

The city’s days of reckoning Page 1 headline: City budget — $6 million deficit. Welcome to Sarasota, Mr. Tom Barwin. Good luck in your new job as city manager. Same to you, Shannon Snyder, new Sarasota mayor. Good luck. The days of reckoning are here. And the options are not pleasant. Perhaps that is why Commissioner Terry Turner decided to move on. He left some tough decisions for his replacement, Susan Chapman, and her commission colleagues. Like their counterparts in Washington, D.C., Sarasota city commissioners over the past decade and a half have kicked the proverbial entitlement can down the road. In the city’s case, the entitlement can includes all of the city-employee pension costs, which at last count in 2012 totaled $173 million in unfunded liabilities. That’s $173 million that city taxpayers eventually must pay. Oh, and that $173 million doesn’t include the $122,948,014 in unfunded liabilities for employees’ post-retirement health-insurance plans. Altogether, city employees’ unfunded pension and insurance liabilities total $295.9 million, which is 11 times greater than the $26.6 million the city collects each year in property taxes. To make the picture even gloomier: In the past fiscal year, the unfunded liabilities increased 21.2%, or by $30.3 million. More angst for city taxpayers: According to the city’s 2012 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, which reveals all of the city’s ugly financial truths, city taxpayers in 2011-2012 paid $23.4 million in cash to cover the city’s annual contributions to the employees’ pension plans. County taxpayers even contributed. They paid some of the $3.6 million toward the general employees’ pension cost and $4.6 million toward the city’s fire-department pension obligations. Of that $23.4 million in pension costs, the largest amount — $4.8 million — went to the police pensions. Think about this for perspective, too: As noted above, the city’s property-tax collections totaled $26.6 million; but pension costs, theoretically, swallowed 88% of the city’s property-tax revenues. More piling on: Add another $9.5 million in cash that is required each year to cover the city’s long-term debt payments. Altogether, then, pensions and current debt payments consume $32.9 million — 66.4% of the annual general fund budget of $49.48 million. Do you get the picture? Debt and pensions are sucking the city dry. The point is obvious: The city needs and must increase its annual revenues. And while some pension cuts and other expense cutting must occur, cutting expenses is never a complete or satisfactory strategy to be a thriving, successful enterprise. It’s going to be a long, hot, intense summer at City Hall.

WHO’S THE ‘L’?
About 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, May 15, the morning after Sarasota City Commission candidate Richard Dorfman lost the election for a seat on the commission, Dorfman saw an email awaiting him from outgoing Commissioner Terry Turner. Dorfman opened the email, and there it was. See above. Surely you recognize the symbol. Turner’s email explains a lot about the current state of the city of Sarasota and those who control City Hall.
Our conclusion: The underlying ramifications and plans to tie this tax to propertytax relief needed more vetting. Good ideas, but it is fraught with problems. This week, we address the second question on the ballot: whether to allow county commissioners to grant property-tax abatements to new or expanding businesses. Manatee County business leaders won’t like how we state this, but here are a few other ways to view the second question: • Should the County Commission be allowed to give special property-tax breaks to new or expanding businesses — if the businesses create or add jobs? • Or, put another way, should the commissioners be allowed to subsidize new or expanding businesses, via property-tax breaks, at the expense of everyone else — so long as the businesses create or add new jobs? • Or, to put it still another way, should commissioners be allowed to pick winners and losers? Our guess is most voters’ instinct is likely to answer “no” to these questions. Americans have a strong disdain for special
MANATEE BALLOT QUESTION #2 2) ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AD VALOREM TAX EXEMPTIONS
Shall the Board of County Commissioners of Manatee County be authorized to grant, pursuant to Section 3, Article VII of the State Constitution, property tax exemptions to new businesses and expansions of existing businesses that are expected to create new, full-time jobs in the county?
THE CASTAWAY by Jorge Blanco
interests. And yet, we create them all of the time. Here are the arguments you hear in support of giving the commissioners this “taxabatement” authority: Manatee commissioners need this authority so the county can be competitive in the national and state economicdevelopment arenas — that includes being competitive with Sarasota County as well. As the county’s economic development and chamber of commerce officials will tell you, Manatee is the only county in the Greater Tampa Bay region that does not have this economic-development “tool” available to recruit and help expanding businesses. And as a result, the county loses out to companies and businesses considering relocating or expanding. This is hurting Manatee’s economic attractiveness. Proponents also argue that granting these “tax-abatement tools” produces a justifiable return on investment. They say the economic multipliers far outweigh the cost of the property-tax subsidies. Instinctively, this sounds right: What’s a small tax break if it means a particular business will hire 10 or 20 more employees that it otherwise might not? Those new employees buy homes, cars, groceries, insurance, medical services and on and on, fueling still more growth in the local economy. And as the size and value of that subsidized company grows, when its tax break ends, it will be paying more taxes than it otherwise would have been if it didn’t receive the tax abatement to help it grow. What’s more, the argument goes, taxabatements are a fact of life in economic development circles. Everybody does it. Manatee, the argument goes, must stay competitive. To paraphrase the late eminent economist, Milton Friedman, seldom is the other side of this coin considered. As Friedman explained many years ago to Forbes magazine, when governments give tax breaks and subsidies to businesses, government officials are assuming the new jobs that those subsidized businesses promise would never be created by anyone else. To the contrary, Friedman said. Who is to say Manatee County’s other businesses and taxpayers would not create the same number or more jobs than the subsidized business if existing taxpayers were able to use the money that is taken from them to subsidize the new business? In a perfect world, which, of course, is a dream, all cities, counties and states would discontinue their corporate subsidy (welfare) programs. Instead, they would compete on what they should really focus, which is creating the right economic climate — low taxes and low regulation. Get out of the business of creating special interests; it fosters community backlash. While this newspaper has always been a strong proponent of business and economic growth, we have likewise opposed business tax breaks in the name of economic development. We still oppose them. Nonetheless, it won’t be catastrophic if Manatee voters give commissioners the authority to offer businesses tax breaks. But here’s the catch: Any business that is awarded a break must be held accountable.

Eighty-year-old sets a masterful pace In June, the Pan-American Masters Championship will come to Sarasota for the first time. As the event approaches, former Olympian Dr. Bumpy Jones reflects on a career of firsts.
IF YOU GO 2013 Pan-American Masters Championship
Dr. Burwell “Bumpy” Jones swims in his home lap pool to train and clear his mind.
When: Saturday, June 1, through Thursday, June 13 Where: Evalyn Sadlier Jones YMCA, 8301 Potter Park Drive Info: For a complete schedule of events, visit panamericanmasters2013.org.
His parents dubbed him “Bumpy” as a child, simply to differentiate him from his late father (also Burwell Jones). Jones’ swimming career began early in his life. Born in 1933, in Detroit, his family spent much of their summers on a boat in the lakes of Michigan. He learned to swim when he was just 2 years old. By age 5, he was swimming competitively, and he earned his first national-event victory at 13. “To be a successful swimmer, it takes talent, but it (also) takes a lot of desire to put in the effort and the training,” says Jones. “That’s something a lot of kids don’t want to do.” Driven by his love of the sport, Jones put in the effort, with considerable results. Career highlights include four years as an All-American swimmer at the University of Michigan; swimming on the gold medal-
winning 1952 U.S. Olympic team in HelsinBumpy ki; swimming in the 1971 inaugural Masters Jones, Swimming event; and a 2005 induction into circa 1950 the International Masters Swimming Hall of Fame, among many other accolades. Today, Jones continues to enjoy swimming competitively — he broke seven Masters national records last month at the 43rd St. Petersburg Championships, and he’ll join nearly 2,000 athletes from North America, Central America and South America this weekend in the PanAmerican Masters Championship, held at the Evalyn Sadlier Jones YMCA, where he’ll compete in the 800 freestyle, 200 backstroke, 200 freestyle, 100 individual medley, 400 freestyle and 1K open water. At 80, he says he’s not sure how much longer he’ll continue to compete, but he attributes his long career and wellbeing to Courtesy of Sarasota YMCA Sharks his continued participation in the sport. and there’s nothing better than swimming “Swimming is mostCDdefinitely responAND MONEY MARKET ALTERNATIVE! sible for my longevity and my health,” he to clear your head.

Dr. Burwell “Bumpy” Jones is standing in his home gym, which also doubles as a trophy room for his collection of swimming memorabilia. A window near the back of the room reveals a view of his personal lap pool in the backyard, which he’s already used twice today. Dozens of rows of plaques, spanning decades of competitions, line the walls, and three glass display cases house countless medals and ribbons. Jones shuffles through a handful of medals, saying it’s impossible to remember how many meets in which he’s competed, but he estimates there have been thousands. “Every once in a while, somebody will ask me that,” he says. “The truth is, I have no earthly idea.” As he points to a framed table of contents from the first issue of Sports Illustrated in 1954, which mentions him by name, the 80-year-old former Olympian says he plans to donate posthumously his extensive collection to the International Masters Swimming Hall of Fame, in Fort Lauderdale. “Who else would want it?” he asks with a humble laugh. This sense of modesty might be the reason Jones, a retired dermatologist, says many of his neighbors and acquaintances know him from the golf course or from work and have no inkling of his renowned swimming career.

DOWN IN THE DUMPS 11 a.m. — 2100 block of Fifth Street. Littering. A resident reported that an unknown person dumped a large pile of cut shrubbery on the sidewalk and right of way. The debris had been there for about a week. Six days later he saw a white truck carrying more debris at the location.
WHERE THERE’S SMOKE ... 12:15 p.m. — 1400 block of First Street. Suspicion General. A bus driver was taking a lunch break at a grocery store and used the restroom. While inside the restroom, he saw a man smoking an unknown substance. The bus driver felt light-headed and advised his supervisor. The driver did not know if the substance was marijuana, spice or something else.
NO ‘FUELING’ HIM 7:48 p.m. — 3500 block of Fruitville Road. Miscellaneous Public. A man called police after he paid $25 at a gas station and tried to pump gas but nothing had registered in his tank. The pump was registering that it was putting gas in the tank, but was dry, and the area around the fuel intake on the man’s truck was dry, as well. An employee told a police officer they would check the surveillance camera to see if there was an issue.

CARTE BLANCHE 8:15 p.m. — 2100 block of Princeton Street. Burglary of a Structure. A suspect pried open the rear door to a business. Once inside, the suspect disconnected the camera system and removed two cameras and spray-painted another with black paint. The suspect then removed the DVR to which the camera system was connected. Once the system was disabled, the suspect went through both offices and the warehouse area and took computers, a safe and a fax machine. The suspect used a clothing cart to move all the stolen items to the front door where he or she exited the business.

Cougars roll past Pirates The Cardinal Mooney High football team showed promise in all three facets of the game during its 32-13 spring-game victory over Braden River May 23.
Cardinal Mooney quarterback Reese Vita scrambles for yardage in the second half. pass from Reese Vita to Sean Morris. The Cougars extended their lead on Demardre Patterson’s 4-yard touchdown run late in the first quarter. Blake Young added a 32-yard field goal midway through the second quarter to give Cardinal Mooney a 16-0 lead heading into the locker room at halftime. Cardinal Mooney elected to return punts and kickoffs and attempt field goals as if it were a regular game. The move paid off for the Cougars, who saw Patterson return a kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown following a Braden River touchdown to open the third quarter. “I like special teams just for the simple fact that it gives you a chance to play more guys, and
it’s a part of the game in the fall,” Smithers says. “Spring is supposed to be a (progression) period. It’s not just offense and defense.” Defensively, the Cougars held Braden River to three first downs in the first half. The Pirates got onto the scoreboard early in the third quarter on a 2-yard run by Davion Banks. Freshman quarterback Jake Huesman, who was playing in his first varsity game, scored Braden River’s final touchdown with 5:44 left in the game. Huesman came on after starting quarterback Dusty Peebles left after suffering a concussion on the third play of the game. Huesman completed 15-of-32 passes for 218 yards. “That kid is a warrior,” Braden River coach Curt Bradley says of Huesman. “He played his heart out. You hate to see what happened to Dusty, but it was good to see what that young kid could do and know that, if we need him in the future, he’ll be there for us. “We would have liked to end on a positive note, but there were some positives in the overall spectrum of the game that we are proud of,” Bradley says. “We’re a better program now than we were at the end of last spring. That’s all you can ask for.”

SARASOTA — It doesn’t determine how a team will fair throughout the regular season. It doesn’t count toward a team’s overall record. And, most importantly, it doesn’t impact a team’s playoff chances. But, what it does determine is how a team has progressed after three weeks of practice. The spring game is a measuring stick designed to give coaches and players an opportunity to see how they stack up, as they prepare to head into their summer and fall programs. For Cardinal Mooney, it was an opportunity to gauge how it faired in all three aspects of the game — offense, defense and special teams. And when it was all said and done, Cardinal Mooney coach Josh Smithers was pleased with his team’s effort; all three units played a part in the Cougars’ 32-13 victory over Braden River May 23. “Obviously, it’s spring, so no one’s going to be rolling perfectly,” Smithers says. “I felt like, in all three phases of the game, we played pretty well considering there are some things that we’ve got to clear up. “The thing we did well, when we weren’t producing offensively, (was that) the defense came out and got three-and-outs and were giving us opportunities.” Cardinal Mooney took a 6-0 lead on a 45-yard touchdown

Junior Richie James, a former wide receiver who converted to quarterback following the departure earlier this year of former quarterback Dominic Mario, accounted for all five of the Ramsâ€™ touchdowns. James completed all five of his passes for 94 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for a game-high 173 yards, scoring touchdowns on runs of 46, 18 and 59 yards. Riverview running back Karan Higdon rushed for 108 yards and hauled in a 55-yard touchdown.

YOUR NEIGHBOR | Barbara Glidden
by Melanie Mason | Observer Intern
According to an advertisement in the June 1, 1978, issue of the Pelican Press, Siesta Maintenance Painting offered full house painting for only $150.
In 1961, Barbara Glidden was named Tarpon Queen at the Sarasota Tarpon Tournament.
arbara Glidden basks in the sunlight of her Siesta Key home as she flips through old photographs of herself in New York, Mexico and the Caribbean. Her scrapbooks are filled with ticket stubs, Neighborhood: flyers and adverSiesta Key tisements for Lays, Neighbor Pepsi and Alka-Seltsince: 1980 zer featuring Glidden with jet-black hair and crystal blue eyes. As she goes through the ads, she tells a detailed story of what it took to make each one and what it was like working for ad agencies such as James Walter Thomas Co. Glidden moved in 1960 to Sarasota when she was a junior in high school. Her mother, Jessie Dunn, now 100, was the first art teacher in Sarasota County. After high school, Glidden attended The American Musical and Drama Academy
MAY 26. Disruptions and dead lines in telephone communication frustrated many local Siesta Key residents in May 1977. But when a group of irritated neighbors confronted the phone company about the service issues, General Telephone Co. found an interesting reason behind the residents’ phone frustrations: Inside a foot-long cable casing was a nest containing six baby birds that had just hatched. Luckily, the babies were rescued without harm from the dangerously located nest and relocated to a safer environment.

in New York, where she studied acting and dancing for two years. She went on to work as a fur garment model and a cocktail waitress and singer at the Gas Light Club in New York, before moving to Mexico to be a dancer. While in Mexico, Glidden joined a small ballet company and performed with famed Spanish singer-songwriter Julio Iglesias. After her six-year adventure in Mexico, Glidden went on to be a showgirl on a cruiseliner. She returned in 1980 to Sarasota, where she worked as a personal trainer and aerobics instructor until 2010. Although Glidden is officially retired, she says she will always be doing something. “My passion is travel,” Glidden says. “I love the freedom of my choices now. I am really looking forward to travel and all the artistic endeavors.” — Yaryna Klimchak

JUNE 5. On June 1, 1979, one unlucky family’s 25-foot Vermont-made sailboat ran aground while they were on a trip from Venice to the Siesta Key; Siesta scavengers then ransacked the boat. The scavengers stripped the boat of all of its possessions and valuables. Asked what he did in the face of such cruel luck, boat’s owner replied, “I said to heck with it and went home.”
May 29. Siesta Key beach joined other beaches in Florida in implementing a new flag warning system to minimize the risks of drowning or serious injury while swimming in the ocean. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection teamed up with the Florida Beach Patrol Chiefs Association, the U.S. Lifesaving Association and the International Lifesaving Federation to develop the uniform warning system for the beaches, consisting of five colorcoded warning flags: double-red, red, yellow, green and purple. The flag system helped reduce the risk of serious injury or death due to ocean-related incidents.
