New Perspective

Nick Friedman

Driving south on U.S. 41 from the North Trail into downtown Sarasota, Dr. Donal O’Shea was surprised by what he saw early last summer. Largely undeveloped and dotted with vacant storefronts, the five-mile stretch of highway that serves as a gateway to the city showed little sign of the educational hub he knew existed there. The renowned mathematician and newly appointed president of New College of Florida had just relocated from Mount Holyoke College, a women’s liberal arts college in South Hadley, Mass., where he served as dean of faculty and vice president of academic affairs. A liberal arts-college enthusiast, he was familiar with New College, but he says without prior knowledge he would have had no idea that he was in the middle of such a wealth of academic resources. These include: New College, consistently a top producer of Fulbright Scholars per capita; Ringling College of Art and Design, ranked among the top art schools in the world; and

PARKING SPAT by David Conway | News Editor

Proposed parking ban divides residents Patron traffic from Walt’s Fish Market has caused headaches for some neighbors, but no consensus on the issue has been reached. A little more than a year ago, Sarasota mainstay Walt’s Fish Market and Restaurant was expanded to include a chickee bar. On it’s face, the move has paid off: Since the open-air bar, which often hosts live music, was built, turnout has increased. In the eyes of several residents on nearby Ivanhoe

Street, though, that success has come with a price. In January, eight property owners and residents signed a petition to prohibit parking on the south side of Ivanhoe. Residents presented the petition to the county’s Traffic Advisory Council in March. The document says the addition to Walt’s

has negatively impacted traffic, pedestrian safety and the ability to enter and exit driveways on the dead-end street of about 20 residences. In response to that petition, the County Commission considered an ordinance prohibit-

balancing act

3A

by David Conway | News Editor

Commissioners pick through county budget With the millage rate set to remain flat, the county is slated to dig deeper into reserves to increase its service levels. Faced with a potential shortfall in the county’s general fund reserves in two years, two budget workshops this month saw the County Commission meticulously pick through the preliminary figures county staff presented to them. This month’s workshops began with County Administrator Randall Reid outlining the priorities of the county’s proposed 2014 budget, which tops $1 billion for the first time since fiscal year 2010. Commissioners scrutinized items, such as the addition of 101 new positions from last year’s budget; a 3% raise for county employees; and other potential spending measures. After lengthy discussion, many details have yet to be nailed down. One reason for the close reading of the budget was addressed at the beginning of the June 12 meeting: Projections have the county potentially running out of reserve funds as early as fiscal year 2016. The county uses reserve funds to cover a gap between revenue and spending.

BIKE MANIA

Although 2013 figures could still change, when the budget was finalized last year, $33 million was set aside to be spent from the reserve, and projections showed $15.9 million in spending. County Chief Financial Planning Officer Steve Botelho said $9.2 million was most likely the minimum needed to be spent from the reserve when the 2013 fiscal year concludes. Projections for FY2014 include $45.7 million budgeted from the reserve and $27.7 million spent. The projections were described as conservative, and a number of variables remain in flux, not only for future budgets but also for the one currently being drafted. Still, commissioners balked at rubber-stamping several elements of the preliminary budget. “Because we’ve started to use reserves, it’s like we’ve become comfortable with not balancing the budget,” Commissioner Nora Patterson said. A millage rate increase was not discussed as a potential fix in the near-term; the rate is scheduled

Because we’ve started to use reserves, it’s like we’ve become comfortable with not balancing the budget. — Commissioner Nora Patterson

to remain flat at 3.39%. Revenues from millage are slated to increase more than $4 million from 2013 due to a preliminary 3.37% uptick in the county’s taxable values at the proposed rate.

This illustrates part of the “conservative” nature of the projections: State projections, used to forecast future revenue, predicted just a 1% increase in taxable values. The other reason for the scrutiny of the budget is the sheer increase in spending. Up almost $125 million from the FY2013 budget, the $1.02 billion preliminary budget saw most of its growth come from a roughly $90 million boost in capital spending. Most of the proposed positions and expenditures are designed to help restore programs and service levels that were cut due to the economic downturn, Reid said. He added that more than 400 employees have been laid off since 2006, and 70 of the new positions were ones the commission added during the past year. Commissioner Joe Barbetta objected to the idea that positions should be added solely to restore staff from before those cuts were made. “We were way overstaffed, inefficient and run poorly,” Barbetta said. “I don’t want to say that ‘we’re just getting back to where we were.’”

Reid clarified that department heads highly prioritized any additional staff and spending, and many requests had been denied. Some of the requests from individual departments — such as $100,000 for library collections or $130,000 for overtime expenses for SCAT bus operators — were left for the board to vote on, so it could decide the level of reserve spending with which it was comfortable. “This is an issue of how much the board feels is appropriate to expend,” Reid said of much of the discussion at the month’s workshops. He also said that returning to the funding levels of 2006 was not a target for the county. “That is not our goal, nor would it be wise, because the world changes,” Reid said. Despite the protracted examination of many of the finer details of the budget, Reid said the process was still on schedule. The county’s final tax valuation will be issued July 1, and the millage rate will be formally set July 10. A final budget workshop will be held in August, and two public hearings will be held in September before the budget is formally adopted.

BMX facility upgrades could boost tourism Rowing. Swimming. BMX? One of these sports might seem like it doesn’t belong, but, for Sarasota, they could all be a boost for the economy. Satisfied with the success of the sports tourism the first two have generated, the county is considering upgrading facilities to attract aficionados of a more extreme sport. Plans to improve and expand the BMX track at Tuttle Avenue and 17th Street, including the addition of an 8-meter ramp, have been in the works for years. But County Commissioner Joe Barbetta brought up finally making the project a reality at a county budget workshop July 12. He suggested the upgrades would quickly pay dividends. “If we did finish it to those standards, I think we’d be pretty much assured of several BMX events in the community with pretty good economic impact,” Barbetta said. Nicole Rissler, director of sports with Visit Sarasota County, echoed Barbetta’s comments. Only one other track in the country, located in Chula Vista, Calif., has an 8-meter ramp, Rissler said. Being only one of two tracks in the country with that feature — and the only East Coast facility — would instantly make Sarasota a draw for BMX riders, she said. The total cost of the facility upgrades would be about $1.7 million, according to Carolyn Brown, director of the county’s Parks and Recreation Department. Currently, about $750,000 has been secured. Depending on the events that were held in the area, potential economic impact is estimated at around $3.5 million annually, Brown said. Rissler acknowledged the people the county would be aiming to bring in would be a contrast to the current targets of Sarasota’s sports tourism efforts, but said the bottom line remained the same. “The demographic is certainly a different demographic than a rowing family or a swimming family, but they still stay in hotels and they still spend locally,” Rissler said. With the planning mostly squared away, Rissler said the project could be completed within a year after funding was secured. In addition to a potential one-time expen-

Thanks to the success of sports tourism in the area, Sarasota could be looking in a more extreme sports direction to generate revenue.

Sarasota’s BMX track already has the distinction of being the nation’s oldest continuously running course. Upgrades could make it a more alluring destination for cyclists. diture from the County Commission, avenues for funding include a partnership with a private donor or the accumulation of surtax revenue. BMX was added to the Olympics starting with the 2008 games in Beijing. If the Sarasota facilities are upgraded, they could be a hot spot leading up to the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Rissler said, due, in part,

to offering a similar climate in which riders could train. This, according to Brown, would bring significant business to the area. “It’s not just one or two people,” Brown said. “It’s entire delegations that are coming to train.” The impact wouldn’t necessarily be wholly external, either. Rissler said Sara-

sota has its own BMX history, including the nation’s oldest continuously running track at the Youth Athletic Complex. The track was built in 1974. “We’re home to quite a few pros here locally,” Rissler said. “For not a huge investment, we would be able to give the community a wonderful asset that could be used by kids and adults alike.”

NEWSBRIEFS + Orioles commit $150,000 to Sarasota Tomorrow Next The Baltimore Orioles announced Tuesday, June 25, an investment of $150,000 in Sarasota Tomorrow Next, the regional economic and community development initiative of the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce. The Orioles, who moved to Sarasota for spring training in 2010, have been expanding their efforts to help improve the local economy since arriving, according to David Rovine, vice president of Orioles-Sarasota. Rovine singled out strengthening sports tourism and preparing young people for the future as two priorities both Sarasota Tomorrow Next and the Orioles prioritize, according to a press release. “We support the chamber’s drive to expand sports and recreational opportunities and tourism in the area,” Rovine said. “Preparing young people for the future through the Talent 4 Tomorrow initiative also appeals to us.” Talent 4 Tomorrow is a prekindergarten to post-graduate education-and-training program. The Chamber views the Orioles as a significant economic power, according to John Cranor, co-chairman of Sarasota Tomorrow Next. He sees this move as another example of that belief becoming reality. “The Orioles have made a multimillion-dollar investment in Sarasota — by participating substantially in the cost of the renovation projects, relocating the organization to Sarasota and attracting the marketing might of MASN radio and television to promote our tourism economy,” Cranor said.

Downtown hotel will bring out local flavor

DO THE lOCAL MOTION Kimpton senior vice president of design, Ave Bradley, shares examples of localized hotels the company has built.

Hotel Monaco Location: Alexandria, Va. Year opened: 2008 Number of rooms: 241 Details: This hotel taps into the historic charm of the city, and Kimpton’s website boasts its Civil War-era ambience and convenient foot transport along historic brick-paved streets, colonial row houses and shops, galleries and restaurants. It’s like stepping into the past without leaving modern-day luxuries behind.

Kimpton Hotels, a boutique-hotel and restaurant company, shares its signature process for localizing its establishments. and her creative team devote considerable time and effort to localizing their hotels to reflect the cultures of the cities in which they build. They immerse themselves in each city and explore its landscape, history, architecture and culture. They dine in local restaurants, grab coffee or drinks around town, explore the nightlife, chat with locals or join them on a jog — anything to get a feel for the city. “The last thing we want to do is look like outsiders imposing our view of what we think a city is like,” says Bradley. “We want every decision we make to come from an educated, informed place.” According to Bradley, no detail is too small to be incorporated into one of its hotels. At the Hotel Palomar in Phoenix, the area rugs include a pattern inspired by the skin of a local sidewinder snake, and other décor incorporates logs and other themes inspired by indigenous desert trees. Its two Miami hotels represent different ends of the cultural spectrum: The Surfcomber, in South Beach,

incorporates the neighborhood’s laid-back atmosphere with a pastel blue-andyellow color scheme and 1960s-themed bikini fabric repurposed into its rugs. The Epic, located downtown, emphasizes the city’s thriving nightlife with sleeker, contemporary design. “We never want the design to be too over the top or in your face,” says Bradley. “There needs to be meaning behind everything. If a customer has a question about the pattern in a rug or a particular decoration, we want to be able to give them a meaningful answer.” Although plans for a Sarasota location are still in the preliminary stage, Bradley says she looks forward to bringing Kimpton’s eye for detail to Sarasota — a city with a rich history of arts and culture. “We want to deliver hotels that are chic and stylish and responsive to local culture,” says Bradely. “It will take a lot of hitting the pavement; having coffee here and wine there to get a feel for the marketplace and what we can bring that’s new, but authentic.”

Surfcomber Hotel Location: South Beach, Miami Year opened: 2012 Number of rooms: 186 Details: This hotel features direct beach access and reflects the relaxed, breezy atmosphere of South Beach. Bradley says Kimpton saw an opportunity to provide a low-key hideaway, which they accomplished with a pastel blue-and-yellow color scheme and burlap-covered surfboards.

Epic Hotel Location: Downtown Miami Year opened: 2009 Number of rooms: 411 Details: Located in the heart of downtown Miami, this hotel complements the city’s bustling nightlife, which is reflected in its sleek, modern design elements, rooftop pools and its surrounding businesses and culture.

Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants touts itself as the anti cookie-cutter hotel-andrestaurant company. With more than 50 individualized luxury hotels and restaurants already operating throughout the United States, the San Francisco-based company might soon be bringing one of its signature boutique establishments to Sarasota. Civix Inc., a Sarasota-based real-estate development company, recently announced that it has signed a letter of intent with the Kimpton to bring a proposed new hotel to a .95acre parcel of county-owned land, across the street from the historic courthouse at 20 N. Washington Blvd. The proposed project would be the company’s third hotel in the state, and, though no official renderings or plans for the hotel have been produced, the new building is slated to be a 10-story, 150-room establishment that represents Sarasota’s unique environment and culture.

The Siesta Key Chamber of Commerce Proudly Presents the 23rd Annual

CITY to welcome Wallenda home with parade The Observer Media Group and the city of Sarasota invite the public to help welcome home the “King of the High Wire” Nik Wallenda at 7 p.m. Friday, July 5, for a Ticker-Tape Homecoming Parade in downtown Sarasota. The parade will begin at U.S. 301 and Main Street and precede the Suncoast Super Boat Grand Prix’s Festival Parade of Boats. The parade will end at Gulfstream Avenue. The parade will include the Wallenda family, Sailor Circus clowns and the Sarasota Military Academy drumline. Sarasota Ford has agreed to provide vehicles for the parade, and organizers are working with Wallenda on his availability for autograph signing and public comments.Wallenda made history Sunday, June 23, when he walked a 2-inch-wide cable suspended 1,400 feet above the Grand Canyon’s Little Colorado River Gorge.  An announcement was made on yourobserver.com Monday, June 24, that the welcome-home parade would take place Sunday, June 30. But, after meeting with city of Sarasota police officials and the city’s event staff, parade organizers determined the logistical and governmental obstacles were too great to pull off the type of parade they wanted in time for this Sunday. As an alternative, they considered holding a rally for Wallenda at Ed Smith Stadium. But that, too, presented its own logistical and governmental challenges. So, the organizers decided to accept a standing invitation from the

Sarasota sailing ladies represent Team USA

Louisa Nordstrom and Hallie Schiffman say sailing gives them independence and an educational experience.

Nick Friedman

Ryan Bodie and John Bowman unload a stack of new custom surfboards before the expansion of their nonprofit surf camp to Sarasota.

Louisa Nordstrom, 15, and Hallie Schiffman, 12, have competed in sailing regattas in South America, Europe and the Virgin Islands.

Children’s surf camp rides into Sarasota

Louisa will age out of sailing Optimists and has also aged out of sailing on the national team. She is not sure what boat she’ll sail next but knows she wants to continue to sail and ultimately sail in college. “Sailing is a lifelong sport,” Louisa says. In October, Hallie raced in Berlin for the BMW Team Race Cup and recently returned from the Scotia bank Regatta in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where she represented Team USA. She dreams of one day competing in the Olympics and of racing around the world in the Volvo Ocean Race. “I would like to surf and navigate the world alone,” Hallie says. The girls say they could not have done any of it without their parent’s support. “There are many kids who may have great sailing ability but cannot do as much because of their parents,” Hallie says. Through their travels, the girls have made friends abroad. “A lot of kids don’t think of the world, they only think of their world,” Louisa says. “It broadens your view.” Both Hallie and Louisa leave Sunday, June 30, for Bermuda to represent Team USA in the North American championships.

In the alley behind Compound Board Shop, John Bowman stands next to five stacks of long cardboard boxes, each stack standing a few inches taller than him. He removes a box from the top of one of the stacks, slices through the packing tape with a razor blade and reveals its contents: a bright-blue surfboard emblazoned with the words “Eternal Summer Surf Camp.” Bowman, the director of the non-profit Christian surf camp for children, has just received a delivery of 130 of these boards to launch the camp’s new Sarasota location, which is set to open Sunday, June 30. Today, a handful of campers help unload the boards and move them into storage, and Bowman is quick to show his appreciation. “Nobody leave before I get your hat size,” he says. “Everybody helping out gets a hat.” In 2008, Bowman founded the surf camp on Anna Maria Island, where he and friends Ryan Bodie, Jay Travis and Justin Hey set out to make Christianity more relevant to children through teaching them to surf. “I really think (kids) need good mentors, so we wanted to use this ministry as an outreach, so that kids who want to learn how to surf can learn about God at the same time,” says Bowman. “It’s a combination of my two passions.” In five years, the camp has grown from

a small group of 15 students to 1,000 surfers last year. Camp directors enlisted the help of more than 100 volunteer instructors. Bowman says with the camp’s evolution, he felt a calling to expand the camp to Sarasota, where more children would have access to the same sense of awe he felt when learning to surf. “I was 13 years old the first time I stood up on a wave, and I never looked at life the same,” says Bowman. “Surfers have always had this idea that they’re searching for something, and all it takes is to go after it. It’s the same message in the sermons.” Thanks to a Tucked In Media sponsorship collaboration with local supplier One International, Eternal Summer Surf Camp now has 130 new boards, as well as bracelets, signs, trophies and raffle items for this year’s camp. “That was huge for us,” says Bowman. “Now, we can have more kids in the water.” Jake Shields, of Compound Board Shop, will help run the Sarasota location near the south bridge on Siesta Key, and with more than 200 children already signed up, he’s excited to share the experience with them. “It’s such a contagious feeling, and it’s like nothing else,” says Shields. “Every other thought you have just goes away. It’s a blessing for me to be able to be a part of that.”

Fifteen-year-old Louisa Nordstrom and 12-year-old Hallie Schiffman demonstrated the kind of maturity it takes to be at their caliber of sailing in only a few short years. Eric Bardes coaches the girls for the elite traveling racing team, team FOR, or Florida Oceanic Racing. Louisa and Hallie both qualified and competed abroad for Team USA and for the National team. Although both girls are naturals at their sport, their success didn’t come easily. Hallie learned how to sail in 2011, during the Sarasota Sailing Squadron’s summer camp. Hallie says sailing takes a lot of hard work, but when she is out on the water she feels independent and free. “You are the one controlling the boat, and you are the one making the next moves,” Hallie says. “It gives you a nice feeling with the wind and waves.” Louisa was first introduced to sailing as an infant in her home country of Sweden. When Louisa was 2 months old, her family lived on a sailboat and sailed all around Sweden. Her family continues to sail every summer in Sweden. “A sailboat is home away from home,” Louisa says. She took lessons at Venice Youth Boating Association four years ago during a summer session but says the competition was not challenging enough for her. “I was about to quit because it wasn’t fun anymore,” Louisa says. “When I joined Eric’s team, I was bumped up to the next level.” Louisa has sailed in regattas all over the world. She placed fifth last summer in the European championship, in Italy, and was home-schooled for part of the year so she could train and compete in Brazil for the South American Championship. “It’s a lot of physical work, but it is also a lot of mental thinking,” Louisa says. “You are predicting the weather and the wind.” Both girls sail an 8-foot Optimist and say it’s basically a bathtub not made to go fast but good for learning.

COLLEGES / FROM PAGE 1A and simultaneously take classes at more than one institution. Shortly after his arrival, O’Shea recognized the potential for a similar system in Sarasota, especially considering none of the schools directly competes with one another. “People never think of Sarasota and Bradenton as an educational destination,” he says. “We have the academic resources; we have all the infrastructure and a transportation system already in place. We have all the makings of a fine college town; it seems crazy that we don’t have that reputation.” Two weeks ago, O’Shea’s idea sparked a meeting with the presidents of five area colleges. The three-day retreat took place in St. Petersburg, and the presidents discussed their visions for a more collaborative college community. The Gulf Coast Community Foundation sponsored the retreat. Presidents and academic leaders from New College, Ringling College, USF Sarasota-Manatee, State College of Florida Manatee-Sarasota and Eckerd College met for the first time in years to take stock of their existing collaborations — and create new ones. The push for more collaboration between the colleges along the North Trail and their potential role in the area’s redevelopment is not a new one. In February 2006, New College, Ringling College and USF collaborated with the Ringling Museum of Art, Manatee County and Sarasota city and county officials with the same goal in mind. Together, they created Innovation 41, a study intended to provide an outline to rebrand the North Trail as an educationaland-cultural corridor. “The North Trail has always been an area that needs to be showcased just as much as downtown,” says Ringling College President Dr. Larry Thompson, who was involved in the study. “It’s a unique environment, and it’s phenomenal what we have

here, not only in terms of education, but also with cultural institutions such as the Ringling Museum and the Van Wezel.” The first step was to create a better sense of identity among the nearby colleges through increased signage, but, as the economic recession began, these efforts, and eventually all of Innovation 41, fell by the wayside. Since then, however, each school has grown and evolved — Ringling College expanded its campus and curricu-

lum; and USF purchased its own campus and split with New College. Thompson says that, now, the schools are in a better position to continue the conversation they began seven years ago. “There are a lot of new players involved now,” says Thompson. “And that’s great, because you can start to become a little discouraged. It’s refreshing to see someone like Dr. O’Shea bring a new sense of enthusiasm and experience to the table.”

Although collaborations already exist among the colleges, each president agrees that many additional opportunities remain. Sharing simple back-office functions, such as acquiring visas for faculty and visitors from abroad; creating a database to find housing and employment for faculty spouses; and standardizing an allschool disaster plan and emergency-alert system, would be easy first steps toward cost-sharing and could pave the way for bigger collaborations. Dr. Arthur Guilford, regional chancellor of USF Sarasota-Manatee, envisions future large-scale projects, including a shared student dorm and student union, seamless cross-registration for students and new graduate programs that, for example, might combine USF’s business school with Ringling’s art and design resources. Guilford also hopes a more unified college community will attract more businesses to help revitalize the North Trail. “Students want coffee shops, better places to eat lunch and a place to congregate in a safe environment,” says Guilford. “I would be interested in looking into property that the colleges could develop jointly for something like that.” Although all plans are still in their infancy, the colleges agreed to continue meeting on a monthly basis, and future meetings will include additional employees, including the provosts and other administrators, as well as finance, HR and security departments. Each school is compiling a list of current collaborations and ideas for the future, and they hope to develop a mutual list of ideas before presenting them to city and county officials. “This really is an untapped resource,” says O’Shea. “Historically, universities have been tightly interwoven with community development, and we really think we can play a role. And we’re not starting from nothing; Sarasota has so much going for it. I really think this would not just change the perception of the area, but fundamentally alter it in good way.”

PARKING / FROM PAGE 1A iting parking on the south side of Ivanhoe Street at the commission’s June 19 meeting. The county’s Traffic Advisory Council had recommended against such an ordinance during its March meeting; and the commission postponed a decision, leaving the future of parking in the area stalled. Brett Wallin, the owner of Walt’s, says any tension between him and the neighbors is overblown. According to Wallin, it’s a few loud voices in a crowd — mostly people new to the area and renters. He says the established residents are sympathetic to his cause. Wallin believes he’s made efforts beyond what many business owners would do to help alleviate the problem. That includes securing alternative parking; Walt’s now uses the lot across the street after the hair salon on the property has closed for the day. He also has a parking attendant to direct customers toward overflow parking. “Most people are just happy to get the business, and they don’t care about the

neighbors,” Wallin said. “I went through a lot of money and a lot of hassle to get the parking lot.” At the June 19 commission meeting, Steve Schember, a lawyer and Wallin’s father-in-law, spoke on behalf of Walt’s. He acknowledged street parking was an occasional issue, but said it wasn’t common. “Ninety-nine percent of the time, there’s not a problem along here,” Schember said. Those who have taken the time to voice their stance are a little more divided about the issue. According to Paula Wiggins, the county’s transportation planning manager, five people have written or spoken in favor of the no-parking measure, while four have been against it. Sandy Fishbein lives at the end of Ivanhoe, and he says he’s been contacting county officials for a year to try and fix his problems. He believes Walt’s solutions aren’t adequate and that the county needs to re-evaluate the permits and parking plan for the restaurant. Fishbein described the activity created

on the dead-end street — trucks parking at the corner to make deliveries, pedestrians crossing a road without a crosswalk from the overflow lot — as a “catastrophe waiting to happen.” “At worst, it’s dangerous,” Fishbein said. “At best, it’s an inconvenience.” Often, Walt’s isn’t necessarily the central point of division. Thomas Jefferson lives at the end of Ivanhoe, where the road dips and a retaining wall limits his parking options. He parks two cars on the street, and he says a parking ban would render him unable to keep the vehicles near his home. “I would have never bought my home if I knew 15 or 20 years later I wouldn’t be able to park my cars there, which I’ve always done,” Jefferson said at the County Commission meeting. Several people are worried about their ability to host company if the ban were instituted. Marc Overfelt, who lives at 1832 Ivanhoe St., said Walt’s parking problem has largely subsided. He hosts an annual Christmas party that depends on street

parking, and he says he’s not alone. “I know our neighbors have parties; they have people who park on the street,” Overfelt said. “If we have these signs there, we wouldn’t be able to have them park on the street.” Although the Traffic Advisory Council recommended against the parking ban, it suggested the institution of permitted parking on Ivanhoe — an idea two residents spoke in support of at the TAC meeting in March. The County Commission won’t make a ruling until July 10. Wallin is hoping for a favorable outcome — for business, but also for maintaining the peace in the neighborhood. “I like my neighbors,” Wallin said. “I don’t have a problem with anybody, to be honest with you.” Fishbein also wants peace in the neighborhood but doesn’t think the maintenance of the status quo at Walt’s will accomplish that. “I don’t think he’s being a very good neighbor,” Fishbein said.

ankle injuries

Common Problem in the Emergency Room Over 4.8 million visits are made to the physician office each year due to foot and ankle problems. One of the most common problems seen in the ER rooms is ankle injuries. Ankle injuries can result in either a sprain or fracture, or both. These should be evaluated by trained foot and ankle specialists. Treatments needed can include; rest, ice, compression, elevation and bracing. In some cases, surgery may be required. Typical healing time is 6 weeks depending on the injury.

There can be an underlying deformity of the foot which can cause repetitive ankle injuries. This happens when there is an inversion of the heel bone. This causes the ankle to easily tilt to the outside resulting in injury. There are conservative and surgical treatments depending on the patient’s history, and the nature and severity of the injury.

June 16 LOOT SCOOTIN’ BOOGIE

June 17

7:22 p.m. — 4900 block of Ocean Boulevard. Possession of Paraphernalia. The victim’s bag was stolen from the pub- l i c beach. Her credit-card company said the card was used at a rental company. The rental company said a man and woman used the card to purchase clothing and rent a yellow scooter. The two suspects were later identified while driving the yellow scooter. A pipe used for smoking crack was found in the woman’s purse.

8:00 a.m. — 1207 block of Sharswood Lane. Burglary. An unknown person or persons entered a house under construction in an unoccupied area of a subdivision. The suspect(s) took $400 worth of wire. The house had no doors or windows, so the suspect(s) had no access barriers.

June 17 BARK WORSE THAN HIS BITE 10:49 a.m. — 1000 block of Central Avenue. Threats. An ex-employee confronted a former co-worker, asking for $5. When the former co-worker said he didn’t have any money, the ex-employee threatened to go to the man’s house and harm his dog. Officers checked on the man’s house and confirmed the dog was unharmed.

June 18 MOTO-CROSS 3:05 a.m. — 1400 block of Main Street. Criminal Mischief. A man’s motorcycle was tipped over in the parking lot of a bar. He thought a man with whom he had gotten into an argument earlier was responsible for the damage and took his frustrations out on the motorcycle.

Two French Olympic gymnastics team members, Joel Suty and Martha Roberta, highlighted the Gymnastics Jamboree at the Boys Club June 21, 1985. The Boys Club regular staff also assisted about 350 children, ages 4 to 14, who tried out nine different gymnastics events in the packed main gymnasium. The two Olympians came on a day’s notice from Sea World, where they were performing a gymnastics act. Suty represented France in the 1980 and 1984 Olympics. He placed ninth overall on the parallel bars and pommel horse in the 1984 Olympics. — June 27, 1985, Observer archives

A six-year-old offer came to fruition in June 1995, according to the Observer archives. The City Commission approved Jack Graham Inc.’s plans, for a $200,000 fountain to be placed on Island Park. The fountain, marking Jack Graham’s more than 25 years of operation at Marina Jack, was described as “a gift to the people of the city.� Steve Dickey, a Ringling College of Art and Design graduate, designed the 40 feet in diameter fountain. Dickey also created the Martin Luther King bust, which sits at Cocoanut Avenue and Martin Luther King Way, and completed the bronze work in Ken Thompson Park. Lee Sullivan, of Jack Graham Inc., said in a letter to commissioners, “It is notable that this project is being accomplished entirely by members of the Sarasota community; a local representative of Delta Foundation arranged for the fountain construction; and the sculpture is being created by a graduate of the Ringling School of Art and Design. The actual manufacturing of the sculptures took place in foundry located in Sarasota.� — June 22, 1995, Observer archives CPC 1456671

Former Cardinal Mooney guard Parker Del Medico helps lead this year’s camp.

Cardinal Mooney High held its boys basketball and soccer summer camps June 17 through June 20, at the school. More than 50 boys, ranging in age from fifth through ninth grade hit the court for the Cougars boys basketball camp. During the four-day camp, participants learned the fundamentals essential to the game of basketball, including: shooting, ball handling, passing, footwork and the concepts of teamwork and defense. Meanwhile, outside on the field, Cougars boys head soccer coach and SUFC Men’s Premier Soccer Team player Sebastian Marin led this year’s soccer camp for youths

Sarasota resident Nate Ditchfield and Lakewood Ranch resident Troy Larkin started EverythingGolfUSA.com for area golfers. Sarasota resident Nate Ditchfield had everything ready to go. Or, at least that’s what he thought. His bags were packed and his golf clubs were neatly stowed away in the backseat of the car. In a matter of hours, Ditchfield and his family would be on their way to North Carolina for vacation. At that point, the only thing left on Ditchfield’s to-do list was to figure out where his first round of golf would be played. But after nearly two hours of Internet research that left him right back where he started — without a tee time —  Ditchfield realized there was a need for a basic online golf directory. The Sarasota High graduate, who first turned pro in 1990 at the age of 16 and had wanted to get back into the sport professionally for the past couple of years, toyed around with the idea. Ditchfield mentioned the idea to Lakewood Ranch resident Troy Larkin, and, before long, EverythingGolfUSA.com was born. The website, designed by golfers for golfers, is an online resource that lists all the private, semi-private and public courses in the state, including scorecards, yardage, handicap and slope-rating information. The site also has information on restaurants, golf and pro shops, driving-range and practice facilities and miniature-golf and putt-putt courses. Additionally, players can book tee times and golf lessons and find out what tournaments, scrambles or golf outings are available to the public. “Everything that could be related to golf can be found here,” Ditchfield says. Ditchfield and Larkin, who met several years ago in church, began by focusing on golf in Florida, but they plan to expand their website nationally. “Our goal for the site is to increase awareness for local golf,” Larkin says. In October, Ditchfield and

SIDELINES + Highlands Golf Course set to re-open The Highlands Golf Course, part of the Meadows Country Club, will hold its grand reopening July 5 to July 7. The course recently underwent a complete restoration of its greens. It offers a unique blend of old Florida-style golfing mixed with modern technology. The Highlands Golf Course is the only semiprivate course in the area with GPS-equipped golf carts that provide a 3-D image of the hole that displays hazards and yardage information. “We are incredibly excited about this event and can’t wait to show golfers the results of the complete overhaul of our greens,” says Doug Domino, general manager of the Meadows Country Club. During the grand re-opening, afternoon tee times, including carts, will start at $15, and morning tee times will be $25. Hot dogs, draft beers and free soft drinks also will be available. There will be contests and drawings for prizes every hour from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., including a summer golf membership to the Meadows. Guests also can enter to win an X-Hot Callaway driver. The Highlands Golf Course is a par 72 semi-private championship course. For more information, call 371-0982.

Each discount card costs $40, with $10 from each card benefiting The First Tee Sarasota/Manatee, which offers clinics and events to local children. “The money goes to the kids in our community,” Ditchfield says. “We’re very excited about that. We’re transitioning from just a directory to a resource. We’re looking to change the way things are done, and this is a really cool thing.” In addition to their website, Ditchfield and Larkin also started their own radio show, “Tee It Up,” in April. The weekly program airs from 8 to 9 a.m. Saturdays, on WSRQ 1220 AM and 106.9 FM Sarasota. Larkin, a Manatee High graduate and former Division I track athlete, has prior experience in TV broadcasting as a news and sports anchor and a reporter. Ditchfield has been involved in the golf business off and on since he turned professional. “It’s kind of got a life of its own,” Ditchfield says of the show. “It’s been a lot of fun. It’s informative and a good listen, so it goes by pretty quick.” Every week, Ditchfield and Larkin play one of the area courses and discuss its positives

Nate Ditchfield and Troy Larkin are eager to share their love of golf with others. “We really want the local golf industry businesses to benefit from what we do,” Larkin says. on the show. “I’m playing more now that I ever have,” Ditchfield says. “I’m very competitive, and, to me, golf is very cerebral. It’s you against the course, and not you against the competition. “It’s a game you can learn how to play when you are 5 years old and keep playing until you’re 95,” he says. “There aren’t any other sports like that. It’s something you can do for the rest of your life.” The duo also shares tips from professionals, highlights upcoming local tournaments and non-profit organizations and offers giveaways, such as free golf lessons and equipment.

“We’re really focused on the local golf scene,” Ditchfield says. “Our goal is to promote local golf. “It’s very fulfilling,” Ditchfield says. “I’ve been able to do a lot of things in life, and now to get back into it — it’s kind of a full circle. It’s what I love to do. I’m passionate about it, so to be able to get back into it is exciting.” For more information on Everything Golf USA, “Tee It Up” or the discount card, visit www.EverythingGolfUSA.com.

Formed in 1967, The Missing Links reunited in 2008, to play at founding member Gary Roy’s 40th high school reunion. But, the one-time gig turned into a permanent reunion.

The Missing Links decided to keep playing after being reunited at high school reunion performance. Here they are shown playing at a bonfire in February.

S

itting behind his drum kit, peering out over the crowd at his 40th high school reunion, Gary Roy felt the memories come rushing back. The night was more than just a high school reunion for him — it was also the first time he’d played with his high school bandmates since the four men went their separate ways shortly after graduation. Here, on the familiar Sarasota Municipal Auditorium stage, Roy and his band, The Missing Links, reached deep into their songbooks and revived the tunes that were popular at the time they attended Riverview High School. Despite the cheering crowd, all Roy could focus on was the surreal joy he felt being reunited with his old band. “I was just thinking, ‘Whoa — this The Missing Links at their first practice, in 1967. is like a trip back in time,’” says Roy. “We’d played this venue so many thick, Charlie Daniels-esque beard. times before. I could look out into the crowd and find the spot where I met “There were only so many of us running my wife or the spot where we sat and around Sarasota with long hair. We all talked to B.B. King, when we opened for knew each other.” The group changed its lineup sevhim. It was just an overload; I wanted to eral times during its four-year career, stay and play all night.” Formed in 1967, The Missing Links but Roy (drums) and Purcell (guitar) was founded in part by Roy and John remained the band’s constants, and, Purcell, who met at Riverview High together, they toured the surrounding area, playing songs in the style of Jimi School. “It was a small community of mu- Hendrix and Cream. They even recordsicians,” says Purcell from behind a ed an album on the Florida-based Paris

band on the run: Upon arriving at a Tallahassee gig in high school, the band members realized they’d been booked under the name of a bigger, more successful band. Needless to say, the crowd was less than pleased to learn they’d been tricked, and the Missing Links finished their set and high-tailed it back to Sarasota.

Tower Records label. But, after graduation, the men went off to different colleges and started families, and the band broke up. It wasn’t until 2007, when Roy was assigned to the entertainment committee for Riverview’s 40th reunion party, that he began to contemplate a band reunion, as well. “I thought there was no way this could happen,” says Roy. “I knew John was still in town playing music, so I looked into it. The committee thought it was a great idea, and I got all the guys to commit. Luckily, nobody backed out.” After recruiting Sarasota High School alumni and old friend David Anson to play acoustic guitar and keyboards and Jon Hausburg to play bass, the group spent most of the year preparing for the show. “We practiced nonstop,” says Purcell. “It was like the old days.” Although the reunion was only supposed to be a one-time performance, the crowd’s reaction at the high school reunion was so overwhelming that the members decided to reunite permanently. Today, The Missing Links continue to perform several times per month, and they still play songs from the 1960s, although now their main focus is on vocal harmonies. The group meets weekly in their practice space, called “The Palace,” where they rehearse old material, learn new songs and enjoy each other’s company. “The best part is being able to jam with guys I’ve been friends with since I was a teenager,” says Anson. “It’s brought us all back into music, which is the thing we love the most.”

NEXT GIG The Missing Links will play during the Sarasota Farmers Market third annual Shrimp and Lobster Festival from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 29, at the Downtown Sarasota Farmers Market. Festivalgoers can munch on Maine lobster rolls, shrimp, steamed clams, lobster and shrimp crêpes and Maine lobster dinners underneath a 60-foot tent. American cuisine will also be available. The Sarasota Downtown Merchants Association, sponsor of the festival, will hand out treasurehunt maps with clues. Festivalgoers can decipher the clues and visit various downtown merchants, located on First Street, State Street and Main Street, to get stamps or initials indicating they were there. Festivalgoers should return to the SDMA booth by noon with their stamped maps for a chance to win gift certificates from downtown businesses. In addition, people can purchase a $10 raffle ticket at the Sarasota Farmers Market for a chance to win a three-night weekend cruise; a Tommy Bahama electric bike; or three baskets loaded with gifts from the Farmers Market vendors. Raffle proceeds will support the Sarasota Farmers Market.

What is your favorite part? I am always looking to make myself a better singer, so I look forward to chorus and voice classes. At the same time I always learn something new about technical aspects. I am in a wig class right now, and we are learning about wig making. I was also really interested in the lighting class. I learned so many things about color temperatures that I had no clue about.

Do you think you want to pursue opera as a career? I don’t think I am going to make singing a career. I really enjoy it, and I know I will be a supernumerary for the rest of my life in any opera house I go to.

What would your tell your classmates about the camp? I would tell them to come here because they can be exposed to opera itself as an art form. But, even if you don’t like opera, you can expose yourself to traditional aspects in musical settings, theater settings, as well as techniques when singing any type of music.
