A form-based code implemented in the city of Sarasota could bring a new urbanist, mixed-use project to the area between downtown Sarasota, where a controversial condo project and a Walmart were both proposed — but never built. It could also draw an ambitious map for redevelopment in the

Rosemary District. And, it could re-envision growth on the North Trail. These all are possibilities city leaders hope could be the result of a two-and-a-half year comprehensive reworking of the city’s zoning and development code into a formbased code.

In a unanimous vote Monday, June 17, city commissioners approved a strategic plan and funding to develop the new code. But, what exactly will this new development map and future developments that follow its code, look

Board approves hotel adjustments + Ocean love Lelu’s Coffee partnered with Ocean Defender of Hawaii Saturday, June 8, on Siesta Key Public Beach to bring awareness about what is happening with the ocean. Forty people joined hands on Siesta Key Beach at noon while people all across the world were doing the same to bless the ocean in a nondenominational way.

The joint-venture development team hopes to break ground in January, on 148-room hotel and 147 apartments at the corner of Palm Avenue and Ringling Boulevard. A two-tower hotel and apartment development planned for a vacant parcel of prime downtown land moved ahead June 12. In a 3-1 vote, the Sarasota Planning Board approved three ad-

justments for the development, called One Palm, proposed at the corner of Ringling Boulevard and Palm Avenue. The one-acre portion of that property has remained undeveloped since 1986.

One Palm developers Dennis McGillicuddy, a private investor, and John Meshad, of JWM Management Inc., are partnering with iStar financial, a New-YorkCity-based real-estate invest-

Encouraging redevelopment

Currently, Sarasota has 42 separate zoning districts throughout the city. A form-based code would establish a set of “transects” or areas of different building height, scale and design, ranging from more compact, urban development downtown, to less compact development in suburban areas. One challenge is to draw the new code so it meets neighborhood desires for compatibility, while also encouraging redevelopment. According to Litchet, the code must be written in a way that does not impact property owner rights. “It should offer incentives and tools for property owners to do a project a certain way,” Litchet said. A form-based plan shows building types and options. For ex-

and design of projects in a certain area, providing what Chapman calls a “more objective” way of regulating what is allowed. For example, she has heard from residents who would like to see a development similar in scale to Citrus Square, constructed on Orange Avenue in the Rosemary District; built at the site of the Ringling Walmart proposal; or on a nearby vacant parcel once slated for condo units. Chapman said she wants to see the new code written in phases — starting with the neighborhoods just outside downtown, such as the Rosemary District, Gillespie Park and Park East. “These areas are prime for redevelopment,” Chapman said. The next important phase would be work on the North Trail and South Tamiami Trail, Chapman said.

ample, such a plan would show a property owner “how the frontage could look,” Litchet said. Commissioner Susan Chapman said she is a proponent of the new code, but has some concerns. “One of those concerns is the criticism that a form-based code works better in undeveloped areas,” Chapman said. Chapman says a new development code could address problems in areas such as the Ringling Shopping Center, between downtown and the Gardens of Ringling Park neighborhood, where a Walmart was proposed, approved and successfully appealed . “Hopefully this can end border wars in these transitional areas between more commercial areas and neighborhoods,” Chapman said.

ECO-DEVELOPMENT

by David Conway | County News Editor

Duany pushes environmentalists to guide city building regulations sound bytes During his tour June 18 and a dinner event that evening, Duany shared his praise and critique of the city. On obtainable housing downtown: The planner said parking requirements downtown make it difficult to build smaller, more affordable units because so much space has to be dedicated to a parking garage. “Parking needs to be closely analyzed as an impediment,” Duany said.

Roger Drouin

On his latest visit to Sarasota, new urbanist planner Andres Duany had good things to say about the new Palm Avenue parking garage. The garage was one of his suggestions in 2000.

Checking in 13 years after first helping create the eventual downtown master plan, Andres Duany emphasizes compromise. In Sarasota’s future, Andres Duany envisions a master plan that clearly delineates the code for developers, addressing the specific needs of urban, suburban and rural areas, while lessening regulations. Duany, the new urbanist who helped create the blueprint of what became the Downtown Master Plan in 2000, thinks there’s a natural group to take the lead on this issue: environmentalists, who he said are the only stakeholders in the process with moral standing. “They didn’t get their power because they were richer — they got their power because they were on the right side of things,“ Duany said after the joint County Commission meeting with the City Commission, Wednesday, June 19. That isn’t to say he sympathizes with the primary concern of many environmentalists in the area. Duany

characterized the environmental concerns of residents as “obsessed with hydrology.” “It’s not the wrong science,” Duany said of the focus on water. “It’s just not the most critical science.” Duany suggested a shift to carbon-focused environmentalism, which could begin by easing hydrological regulations on new developments downtown, lessening the city’s dependency on cars to outweigh adverse ecological effects. A walkable downtown has been a priority of Duany’s vision for Sarasota since he first came here. Principled compromise in the name of easing the development process was a recurring theme. When recommending institution of a clear-cut city code, so developers would be more acutely aware of what they could build, he anticipated potential blow-

back from individual neighborhoods. His response was that such close oversight would stymie new projects. “Dozens of neighborhoods don’t want a master plan at all; they want to have the decision making continually embedded within a small group of people in the neighborhood,” Duany said. “You’re welcome to do that, but it ends bad.” Duany reiterated the need for separate codes for urban and suburban areas to create an incentive to build on what are otherwise smaller, more limiting plots in the city. Though Duany said he’s improved the amount of time it takes to install the sort of plan he’s envisioning, there would still be a wait for its effects to be noticeable. “Even when you put a code in place, you have to wait a generation before you see anything,” Duany said.

On Mediterranean Revival architecture downtown: “It’s not that all Mediterranean architecture is bad. It’s just that downtown Sarasota doesn’t deserve this bad Mediterranean architecture.” On Sarasota’s progress: “You think you’re running a dysfunctional operation here. You are running a continuous fluke, and things are moving forward.” On the Palm Avenue Parking Garage: Duany said the public parking garage that opened in 2010, is a great asset the city has gained. Some of the spaces can be used to relieve the parking requirements in nearby developments. “It’s about as good as it gets,” he said about the design of the garage. — Roger Drouin

collaboration by Observer Staff

The Observer and Tampa Bay Times partner in Plant City The Observer Media Group Inc. has entered a partnership with the Tampa Bay Times to combine their respective weekly newspapers in Plant City into a new weekly — The Plant City Times & Observer. The free weekly newspaper, which will debut in August, will offer local news and advertising to its readers in east Hillsborough County. With a circulation of 15,000 copies each week, the paper will be available in racks and through home delivery. The paper will publish as a free-standing paper and as a section of the Tampa Bay Times in the Plant City area. A year ago, the Observer Media Group formed a new company, the Plant City Observer LLC, with three Plant City businessmen, Ed Verner, Nate Kilton and Felix Haynes, to begin publishing the Plant City Observer. A week prior to its launch, the Tampa Bay Times also began publishing a weekly — the Plant City Times. But, rather than continue serving the 34,000-population market with four newspapers, including the Tampa Tribune and the Tribune-owned Plant City Courier, the owners of the Plant City Observer and the Times Publishing Co. decided to join forces. “Combining our respective strengths will allow us to publish for Plant City the best daily newspaper in Florida and one of the best community weeklies in Florida,” said Matt Walsh, CEO of the Observer Media Group. The Plant City Observer staff will handle the Times & Observer’s newseditorial; the Times will handle advertising, printing and distribution. “This partnership will allow us to give Plant City residents an even more robust weekly newspaper,” said Bruce Faulmann, vice president of sales and marketing at the  Tampa Bay Times. “And we couldn’t be more pleased to team up with the local ownership group in Plant City and the Observer Media Group in Sarasota. They have done a great job with the  Plant City Observer.” The Tampa Bay Times is often ranked among the Top 10 newspapers in America and has won nine Pulitzer Prizes. It is Florida’s largest newspaper, with an average circulation of 402,422 Sunday and 340,260 daily. The Times is produced by the Times Publishing Co., which also publishes TampaBay.com, Tampa Bay’s largest local news website with two million unique visitors each month. Additionally, the company publishes the free daily tbt*, an edition of the Tampa Bay Times, tb-two*, a free paper written by Tampa Bay area students distributed to students, and the Pulitzer Prizewinning website, PolitiFact.com. The Observer Media Group publishes seven free community weekly newspapers, including the Sarasota Observer, Longboat Observer, East County Observer, Ormond Beach Observer, Palm Coast Observer, Pelican Press and Plant City Observer; the weekly paidcirculation Business Observer, serving the Gulf Coast of Florida; and five affiliated websites. The company’s combined circulation and unique viewership totals more than 150,000 a week. In 2012, the Local Media Association, a newspaper organization of more than 2,200 member newspapers in the U.S. and Canada, named the Sarasota Observer and Longboat Observer “Newspapers of the Year” in their circulation categories and YourObserver.com the No. 1 local news website in North America.

+ Entrepreneur purchases more downtown land Entrepreneur Jesse Biter closed June 18 on an .84-acre parcel at 1445 Second St. He purchased the property, which houses the United Way Building, for $2.8 million. The property, located catty-corner to Whole Foods Market, is the first of two parcels Biter is slated to buy with plans to develop an apartment complex. Biter Biter is scheduled to acquire the Marcia Wood & Co. property at 1401 Second St. in July. John Harshman, of Harshman and Co., represented the seller and Steve Horn, of Ian Black Real Estate, represented the buyer. “Jesse’s vision for the city is for people to have the ability to live and work in downtown and not have to buy a $1 million or a $500,000 condo,” Horn says. He expects demolition of the two buildings to start toward the end of the year and is hopeful that construction could start in the first or second quarter of 2014. The seller, United Way of Sarasota County Inc., purchased the 39-year-old building in late 2000 for $850,000.

Meanwhile, Biter said local architects are putting together some possible design plans for his proposed 10-story apartment development. Biter wants to build 168 obtainable-housing apartments on the two parcels totaling 1.08 acres. Early plans for the apartment project include amenities such as a laundry chute, rooftop restaurant and a share-a-car community rental program for renters who want to trade their car for a bike. Preliminary project plans also include retail space on the first floor. Because of a city approval in 2007 that granted previous developer Leonard Garner a density bonus, allowing up to 168 new residences at 1445 Second St., Biter is allowed to build a higher number of residential units. Twelve units can be built at 1401 Second St.

+ U.S. 301 to get new median landscaping

As of Monday, June 17, the new P.F. Chang’s restaurant at the corner of U.S. 41 and Osprey Avenue is open for business. Construction of the 6,900-square-foot, stand-alone building began in December, and crews spent the last few weeks wrapping up construction. They recently installed the pair of trademark horses in front of the restaurant, and last month, workers were installing tile around the base of the horses. The restaurant opened at 5 p.m. Monday, according to the P.F. Chang’s corporate website.

Roger Drouin

P.F. Chang’s China Bistro Inc. operates two restaurant chains: the full-service P.F. Chang’s China Bistro and the quick-casual Pei Wei Asian Diner. Community interest has been especially high for the restaurant, because the closest P.F. Chang’s is more than an hour away north or south, in Tampa and Fort Myers. The company operates a Pei Wei on University Parkway just west of I-75. The restaurant’s regular hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

+ Woman uses child to conceal crack pipe

+ Police find missing swimmer’s body off Lido Key The Sarasota Police Department recovered the body of a 19-year-old man before 9 a.m. Sunday, June 17, roughly 200 yards off of Lido Beach, after witnesses reported him missing the previous evening. Police and other agencies began a search for Steve A. Reserve, who was last seen in distress in Big Pass, off the beach near Ted Sperling Park at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, June 16. Big Pass’s rough tidal conditions can make the waterway difficult to navigate.

Sarasota County deputies discovered a crack pipe beneath a 6-year-old boy during a traffic stop after 10 p.m. Friday, June 14. Deputies arrested Fallon Miller and Gregory Wagner near the intersection of Dixie Drive and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, after Miller ran a stop sign in a white pickup truck. Deputies discovered crack cocaine in Fallon’s mouth and the child between the pair. The Sheriff’s Office charged Wagner, who has been arrested 16 prior times in Sarasota County, with child abuse and possession of cocaine, and Miller with possession of cocaine, tampering with evidence, driving with a suspended license and possession of drug paraphernalia.

During the Monday, June 17, City Commission meeting, commissioners: • Appointed Robert Lindsay to the Planning Board. Commissioner Susan Chapman, elected to the City Commission in May, vacated that seat last month. Board members serve for three-year terms, and cannot serve more than two consecutive terms. Mayor Shannon Snyder and commissioners Paul Caragiulo and Suzanne Atwell voted to appoint Lindsay. Lindsay served on the Planning Board for several terms from 1984 to 2009. • Voted unanimously against an ordinance that would have amended the zoning code to allow cluster housing developments as a permitted use in certain residential zones. City planning staff had recommended commissioners not approve the change. • Discussed a $225,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the possibility of using the grant to build a homeless facility in collaboration with Sarasota County. • Approved an agreement between the city of Sarasota and the School Board of Sarasota County to assign three regularly employed police officers to be responsible for three schools: one officer assigned to Booker High School; one officer assigned to Sarasota High School; and one officer assigned to Brookside Middle School. The next Regular City Commission Meeting is scheduled at 2:30 and 6 p.m. Monday, July 1, City Hall, Commission Chambers, 1565 First St., Sarasota.

City Commission Meeting Wrapup

A project to add landscaping to the median on U.S. 301 from Mound Street to Myrtle Avenue is slated to start in September. The city will begin seeking bids from contractors later this month, and by Sept. 1, the selected contractor should go to the City Commission for approval, said Neil Gaines, the city’s coordinator of capital projects. When U.S. 301 was rebuilt, all of the landscaping, except one strip north of Mound Street, in front of Sarasota Ford, was removed from the medians. This project will add in new landscaping and irrigation in the highway’s median. “It’s a big project,” Gaines said. “It will look great when it is done.” A previous bid for the landscape project came in over budget, so city officials changed the project design to keep the cost down. “We modified the design to remove specific parts of the project such as certain types of irrigation control or irrigation heads and put generic units in,” Gaines said.

HOTEL / FROM PAGE 1A licuddy said. The developers must now seek approval through either a site plan or building permit application. Both processes require city staff approval. After the June 12 meeting, McGillicuddy highlighted details of the project for a 148-room hotel which will also offer 147 residential units. An L shaped apartment tower will partially overlook Palm Avenue, while another L shaped hotel tower will be located to the east. The apartment lobby will face Palm Avenue, and the hotel lobby and drop-off will face Ringling Boulevard. “We are looking for how we will run the hotel,” said McGillicuddy, who in 1998 and 1999 sold Coaxial Communications, a cable television company he co-founded. The development will also include a restaurant on the first floor facing Ringling Boulevard. The developers were seeking an adjustment that would allow the 10-story building to be placed 8.5 feet from Ringling Boulevard to accommodate a water drainage pipe, and another adjustment allowing the developer to keep a grand oak tree and wrap the edge of the building around the tree. The developers were also requesting a smaller awning than mandated in the city’s code. The property at 240 S. Pineapple Ave totals 2.95-acres. In addition to the vacant tract, the property currently houses a parking lot and three existing buildings, including a two-story office building; an 11-story, 129,000-square-foot office tower; and an eight-level parking garage, which will be tied into the hotel and apartment project. “It will be two separate buildings with a courtyard in the middle,” McGillicuddy said about the development’s preliminary design. The location at Palm and Ringling was what attracted McGillicuddy and Meshad to the project; the developers had been eying the parcel for some time.

Preliminary plans call for the tower fronting Palm Avenue to move back 32-feet to make space for a grand oak. “If you look downtown, it is one of the few locations left to develop,” MGillicuddy said, “and it is a beautiful location. It will add to the vibrancy of downtown.” Although there are hotels along the bayfront and Hotel Indigo on Boulevard of the Arts, there are no hotels in the downtown core, south of Fruitville Road and east of U.S. 41. At the June 12 planning board meeting, member Mort Siegel, who voted against the adjustments, wanted to see more specific details about the project sooner than later. “We should have as much information as possible before we start talking about 8-and-a-half feet here and a canopy this and that,” Siegel said. Siegel said he was not seeking final plans, but more specifics than what was shown in several preliminary sketches submitted to the city. Joel Freedman, a planning consultant representing the developers, said they would submit more-detailed plans as the next step. However the developers wanted to know if the planning board would approve the adjustments before they pursued that next step. “The adjustments (process) was set up because if you don’t know if you can

“We have an unusual situation here, and these adjustments are required to really build anything on the site,” Freedman said at the meeting. Freedman discussed plans to incorporate a 42-inch-wide grand oak into the development’s plans. To do so, architects stepped the apartment tower back 32 feet. “We have designed the building to literally cut a hole out of the building,” Freedman said. Four other oak trees will be cut down, and smaller trees planted to mitigate the loss of the trees. Peter Fanning, president of the Downtown Sarasota Condominium Association, said he was relieved the developer was planning to save the grand oak, but some neighbors were concerned about plans to cut down the other oak trees. Saving the one large oak will enhance the pedestrian experience as residents and vacationers will be able to walk past the tree as they walk down Palm Avenue toward Ringling Boulevard,” Freedman said. McGillicuddy said the joint venture is currently in the process of designing architectural plans and a site plan, and hopes to break ground on construction no later than January.

Golden opportunity Bring up the city of Sarasota’s zoning code, and invariably members of the city’s planning board will tell you it doesn’t work. New City Manager Tom Barwin, who has been in the trenches of city governments for 30 years, winces when you bring it up and says it needs to be pitched and redone. It would not be inaccurate to say the proposed Walmart near Lime Avenue and Ringling Boulevard and a health spa on the North Trail, not to mention overall redevelopment on the North Trail, have fallen victim to the city’s ancient and increasingly unworkable codes. Now there is hope. The City Commission Monday night approved the spending of nearly $1 million over the next two-and-a-half to three years to develop what the planning geeks call “form-based codes.” This is the code and planning system Andres Duany and his Miami architectural firm, Duany PlaterZyberk & Co., used to develop Seaside, that popular resort community in the Florida Panhandle and site of the movie, “The Truman Show.” The accompanying box, taken from the Form-Based Codes Institute, defines and illustrates how form-based codes are put into practice. On paper, this looks great. But that’s the way most architectural renderings look. When it comes time to implement, the story often is another matter. Planners love these technical processes. But look what planners have wrought. In the item below, Duany himself laments how zoning codes and regulations are choking new-business formation in Florida. Duany’s own master plan for downtown Sarasota — another attempt at form-based code — is loaded with specific regulations and recommendations, such as awning types and window sizes. The point is: Form-based codes have become the “new math” of planning and zoning, even though they have been around a long time. More and more communities have adopted and are adopting this approach. And it sounds and reads as if form-based codes are a better alternative than the system the city has used over the past 50 years. Communities that have adopted them say they reduce a city or county’s regulatory burdens and speeds up the review process, saving local governments and developers thousands of dollars. Go for it. Like the Duany master plan of 2000, converting to form-based codes will require public discussion and acceptance. If you read existing literature on the adoption of form-based codes, its proponents talk of the need for community charettes. And that is where the process can get gummy. A select few can hijack the process. To this end, our hope is that City Manager Barwin is able to maneuver Sarasota through the creation of form-based codes without letting city’s anti-everything Luddites kidnap the process and kill it. Updating the city’s zoning codes is long overdue. We hope those who become involved will keep an important tenet in mind. We say it often: Capital flows where it is welcome. Sarasota needs to attract new investment. Its zoning codes should welcome it.

Set aside the overall speech noted architect Andres Duany delivered Tuesday night to the attendees at the Downtown Sarasota Association annual dinner Tuesday night at the Francis ballroom. Let’s face it, Duany rambled. At times, it was like Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride at Disney World through the Architectural and Planning Forest. But you can always count on Duany for a few zingers. For one, he brought back his famous, or is that infamous, reference to Sarasota’s unique demographics: “What did you do with the old coots?” he asked Tuesday night early in his talk. “Because this is a much younger crowd.” And: “You’re running a continuous fluke, and it’s working,” he said about downtown

Form-Based Code defined How zoning defines a oneblock parcel Density, use, FAR (floor-area ratio), setbacks, parking requirements and maximum building height(s) are specified.

How design guidelines define a one-block parcel Density, use, FAR (floor-area ratio), setbacks, parking requirements, maximum building height(s), frequency of openings and surface articulation are specified.

How form-based codes define a one-block parcel Street and building types (or mix of types), build-to lines, number of floors and percentage of built site frontage are specified. Source: Form-Based Codes Institute

The following is from the Form-Based Codes Institute: Form-based codes foster predictablebuilt results and a high-quality public realm by using physical form (rather than separation of uses) as the organizing principle for the code. They are regulations, not mere guidelines, adopted into city or county law. Form-based codes offer a powerful alternative to conventional zoning. Form-based codes address the relationship between building facades and the public realm, the form and mass of buildings in relation to one another, and the scale and types of streets and blocks. The regulations and standards in formbased codes are presented in both words and clearly drawn diagrams and other visuals. They are keyed to a regulating plan that designates the appropriate form and scale (and therefore, character) of development, rather than only distincSarasota. But in his one-hour-plus presentation, he delivered at least three cogent takeaways: • Sarasota doesn’t know what it wants to be. Duany illustrated this point by noting how downtown Sarasota morphs from one- and twostory buildings on Main Street to what he called 25- and 28-story buildings lining the bayfront, with no transition in Andres Duany between. “You don’t know whether you’re a city or a village,” Duany said. Valid point. It reminds us of similar advice from the world’s foremost author of university textbooks on marketing, Phil Kotler of the Kellogg School at Northwestern University and a part-time Longboat Key resident. Last winter he told attendees at an Argus Foundation luncheon that Sarasota needs a clearly, defined brand. He, too, said Saraso-

tions in land-use types. This approach contrasts with conventional zoning’s focus on the micromanagement and segregation of land uses, and the control of development intensity through abstract and uncoordinated parameters (e.g., FAR, dwellings per acre, setbacks, parking ratios, traffic LOS), to the neglect of an integrated built form. Not to be confused with design guidelines or general statements of policy, form-based codes are regulatory, not advisory. They are drafted to implement a community plan. They try to achieve a community vision based on time-tested forms of urbanism. Ultimately, a form-based code is a tool; the quality of development outcomes depends on the quality and objectives of the community plan that a code implements. ta hasn’t figured out yet what it wants to be. • Regulations are killing Florida and entrepreneurism. “A monster of regulation has arisen in Florida,” Duany said. “We have completely lost our minds on what it’s like to get a permit now. “Government has exterminated the ability to start a business,” he said. “No one can do anything now without government help because the government has sterilized everything with gold-plated rules. It’s completely ridiculous. That’s why the young are going into the arts.” To counter this, Duany says he is now advocating what he calls “pink codes,” codes that reduce regulations. “I’m really excited about this, because I want those 25-yearold (architects and planners) to be able to feel as excited as I did when I was 25.” • Sarasota County’s 2050 plan is a failure. “It’s not worth administering. It’s yielding suburban sprawl.” On that, we’ll continue to hold out for a miracle — that, like the city of Sarasota’s zoning code, 2050 will be scrapped and reworked in a way that actually welcomes residential and commercial development.

Sarasota County Emergency Medical Director Steven Newman says “working together with guys he’s helped train to resuscitate a life” is the best part of his job.

License to mend County Emergency Medical Services medical director since July 1984. As part of that position and through individual agreements, Newman also holds the title of medical director of emergency services for Longboat Key, North Port, Englewood, Sarasota County Tech-

nical Institute and the SarasotaBradenton International Airport. That means Newman allows more than 600 firefighters, paramedics and emergency medical technicians throughout Sarasota County to use his medical license seven days a week.

Florida statutes and the Department of Health require that every licensed emergency medical services provider employ or contract a licensed emergency medical services doctor to serve as its medical director. That’s because firefighters, paramedics and emergency medical technicians don’t possess medical licenses but, are able to perform medical procedures through the training and guidance they re-

ceive through directors such as Newman. “My primary job as medical director is to develop protocols, which act as recipes for care, that allow those to operate at the scene of an accident or at the home of an injured patient using standards I help to create,” Newman said. Every two years, Newman is charged with updating those practices, so those using his license have the best information and practices possible to both treat patients and resuscitate them. According to Rod VanOrsdol, assistant chief in charge of EMS operations for Sarasota County, Newman’s procedural updates underscore a willingness to adapt that is essential for the success of the area’s emergency medical personnel. “He has really shown himself to be a phenomenal leader for us, as far as allowing us to really give the best of the best of medical care to Sarasota County, because he's willing to be open to suggestion and to look at what is the most progressive and best treatment,” VanOrsdol said. You name it, Newman has developed a Sarasota County emergency protocol for it. Those include cardiac arrest, burns, emergency childbirth, pediatric respiratory distress and allergic reactions just to name a few.

Keeping on the cutting edge

Sarasota County Medical Director Steven Newman’s healing touch has a far reach: His license reaches up to 60,000 patients annually through more than 600 first responders. For 29 years, Dr. Steven Newman has treated Sarasota County residents who have a medical emergency and call for an ambulance. But, the majority of those patients don’t know his name and have never seen his face. Newman has been the Sarasota

When asked if having all those emergency responders work under his license on a daily basis makes him nervous, Newman quickly responds. “I don’t have trouble sleeping at night,” Newman said. “I sleep just fine.” In July 2014, Newman will have held the post for 30 years. What that job entails is much more than a 40-hour-per-week job. In his prime, Newman worked 180 hours a month as an emergency room doctor at Sarasota Memorial Hospital and its various clinics, while working an additional 40 hours per month or more training emergency responders the ins and outs of emergency medicine for their shifts. Today, the 63-year-old works about 110 hours per month at the hospital and clinics and more than 50 hours training and working with emergency responders. Newman evaluates and treats more than 5,000 patients a year. But, his license alone, he estimates, helps treats 50,000 to 60,000 patients a year. “I consider it a privilege and an honor that my license is helping so many people,” Newman said.

Newman calls the “ride time” he spends with the emergency responders one of the best perks of his job. “I’m not a back-room, rubber

NEWMAN / FROM PAGE 9A stamp-medical director demanding rules and regulations be followed,” Newman said. “I’m bunkered up with the men in gear, following them to a scene in my car that’s equipped with lights and a siren.” Newman and his assistant medical director each take two weeks out of the month to be on call 24 hours a day for any emergency medical services personnel who might need their advice while on the scene treating a patient. Newman’s hands-on approach is not only a defining characteristic of his tenure as medical director, but one appreciated by the people he’s working alongside, VanOrsdol said “There are a lot of places where people see the medical director and immediately think they're in trouble,” VanOrsdol said. “That is absolutely not the case here. They know that he's doing that as a support mechanism — people enjoy it and actually invite him to come out and ride with them because he's such a positive influence.”

Medical director recognition

On July 17, in an Orlando hotel banquet hall, Newman will receive the state’s Emergency Medical Services Raymond H. Alexander Medical Director of the Year Award for 2013. But the humble, soft-spoken medical director downplays the honor. “I’m humbled to receive the award, but it’s really the firefighters and paramedics that should be receiving this for all they do on the scene each and every day.” If he had his wish, instead of accepting the award in Orlando next month, Newman said he would be on a shift with some of the men he’s helped train. “I love to get bunkered up and get dirty,” said Newman, who used to be a member of a volunteer fire department in a Los Angeles suburb. “I respect what those guys do so much and stay out of the way. I am only there to be of assistance if they need me.” When asked if his appearance on shifts and emergency response calls has ever

THURSDAY, JUNE 20, 2013

helped to save any lives, Newman downplays his response with a soft-spoken response, followed by a smile. “A couple of times it was a good thing I was on scene to provide assistance,” Newman said. “I’ve saved a couple of phone calls from having to be made, let’s put it that way. But, those guys know what they’re doing and I rarely have to do anything but observe.” Newman said it’s his goal in the future to reduce his hospital hours to 60 hours a month and his emergency medical services hours to 15 hours a month, but you get the sense he’s not serious about reducing his workload as the words come out of his mouth. He then contradicts his reduction of medical assistance hours in his next sentence. “If I retired or reduced my medical director hours, I would be selling the system short,” said Newman, who said he has at least another five to seven years of fulltime work left in him. “It’s extremely important a medical director walk the walk and talk the talk. Those guys have to see me on the scene with them, slugging it out with them from time to time or my credibility starts falling.” VanOrsdol said Newman’s leadership serves as a powerful motivator for those working under his license. “It really drives home the reason why the EMTs and paramedics within Sarasota County really do the best that they do, because they don't want to let him down,” VanOrsdol said. When asked what the best part of his job is as medical director for Sarasota County and other departments he serves as medical director, Newman doesn’t hesitate to provide a response. “That would be receiving a patient while I’m in the ER from a crew I helped train that has brought the patient back to life for me to work on,” Newman said. “Working together with those guys to resuscitate a life together is the best part of my job.” — David Conway contributed to this article.

The Coastline Volleyball 14U Rox Black team was one of 48 teams to earn a national bid after finishing second at the 2013 USAV Florida Regional Qualifier April 27-28, in Orlando.

Bound for

Nationals

The Coastline Volleyball 14 Rox Black team earned a bid to the USA Volleyball Girls Junior Nationals June 30 through July 3, in Dallas. Decked out in her team colors, Margo Schnapf bounces around the court with a giant grin splashed across her face. The 13-year-old Pine View

School freshman is living a dream —  one only a handful of players get to experience in their careers. And for Schnapf, who will play volleyball for Riverview High this

fall, the anticipation of playing on a national stage is enough to keep her bubbling over with excitement. But, in a matter of moments, play resumes and Schnapf’s exu-

berance is put on hold. With wisps of hair breaking free from her ponytail and beads of sweat trickling down the sides of her face, the 13-yearold stands unwavering — a look of pure focus and determination splashed across her face. The defensive specialist digs down, holding her position as her Coastline Volleyball 14 Rox Black teammates maneuver back and forth across the court around her. It isn’t long before the ball sails toward Schnapf who digs the ball back up to one of her teammates. The ball makes its way back to Lakewood Ranch High freshman middle-hitter Kahlee York’s outstretched arms and she sends the ball spiking back down onto her opponent. Cheers reverberate throughout the gym, as the players come together in celebration before quickly disbursing back to their positions as the next play is called. It’s a typical practice session for York and her Coastline Volleyball 14 Rox Black teammates who are eagerly preparing for their next chance to compete — this time on a national stage. The team was one of 48 teams who earned a bid to the USA Volleyball Girls Junior Nationals June 30 through July 3, in Dallas. Coastline Volleyball finished second out of 57 teams at the 2013 USAV Florida Regional Qualifier April 27 throuhg April 28, in Orlando, to earn the bid, becoming the club’s first team to earn a national bid in its first year of existence. “I started crying and kept thinking this is so surreal,� Schnapf says. “Then it hit me. ‘Oh, my gosh, we did it.’�

York agrees. “It’s amazing,� York says of qualifying for nationals. “We lost our first game, so to be able to come back and get that win was so emotional and exciting.�

Will to win

The Coastline Volleyball 14 Rox Black team formed in November following a series of tryouts. “I just thought this feels right,� Schnapf says of joining Coastline Volleyball. “I had to be here.� The girls competed in four tournaments, playing up in the 15s division, before competing in the first of three national qualifiers March 29 through March 31. “That first practice they all just hit it off and clicked really well,� says Coastline Volleyball coach Matt McElhiney. “They are extremely motivated, which is half of the battle. They are a (coachable) group of kids who are enthusiastic about learning and want to get better.� The team competed in the Big South Qualifier in Atlanta and the Lonestar Qualifier in Dallas, but finished ninth in both tournaments out of a combined 316 teams. The top-two teams in each qualifier earned a national bid. With their season on the line, the girls headed to Florida Region Qualifier with high expectations. The team went 8-1 over a two-day span to secure the bid. “We don’t really have one player who is the star — we all contribute equally,� Schnapf says. “We really peaked and came together at the qualifier to be able to get the bid to nationals. “The first two (qualifier) losses were really hard,� Schnapf says. “We knew this was our last

chance. Once we did it, I couldn’t even believe it.” Florida is one of the best regions in the nation. This was their last chance for the season, and they found ways to win when they had to.” Following the Regional Qualifier, the girls took a month off before reconvening at the end of May to begin preparing for the USA Volleyball Girls Junior Nationals. The girls practiced three nights a week, before heading to Orlando for the 2013 AAU Girls Junior National Volleyball Championship, which began June 19 and runs through June 22. The open tournament features 153 teams in the 14U Club division, from across the United States and Puerto Rico. “I’m so excited to be able to compete and have that experience with everyone,” York says of competing in nationals. “The passion on this team is so strong and everyone on this team wants it so bad.” Schnapf agrees. “We’re a 14s team that hasn’t been playing together for more than a year, so this is something to be proud of,” Schnapf says. “I’m just so excited. This is something I’ll always keep with me and maybe I’ll be able to do it again in the future.” Following the AAU Girls Junior National Volleyball Championships, the girls will return home before flying June 29, out to Texas. “They’ve set the bar extremely high and they’ve really risen to that,” McElhiney says. “They don’t shy away. They rise up to the occasion. “I’m very confident, but I don’t want them to think ‘Oh we’re just happy to be here,’” McElhiney says. “If they approach it point by point and game by game, and keep the same focus they’ve had at practice the past few weeks then I think they’ll do very well.”

Mollie Lafferman has worn her engagement ring for more than 60 years. She first saw it when her husband, David, asked her to marry him at a stoplight. “I asked her what she thought about the ring. She said she loved it and I never got it back.” Lafferman said.

Three area couples reflect on decades of marriage and how they keep it going. They were honored June 14, during a blessing of their marriages at Temple Emanu-El. Mollie Lafferman met her husband, David, when she was 6 years old. She was visiting her cousin, Ceva Setlen, in Baltimore from High Point, N.C. “I was just a little girl and in everyone’s way,” Mollie says. David was 15 years old and lived down the street from Mollie’s cousin. “We didn’t pay a whole lot of attention to her, ” says David. But, years later, Mollie hapWedding pened to catch more than just David’s eye. After he Anniversary returned from the United States Army Air Corps and Mollie finished colMarried: June 21, 1953 lege, Setlen set them up Number of Children: 3 on a date. “We went out with Number of some of his friends and Grandchildren: 3 he was very easy to be Residence in Sarasota: with and always has Palm-Aire been,” Mollie says. The couple dated for two years before David popped the question. “He stopped at a red light, handed me a box with a ring in it and asked me, ‘What do you think?’” Mollie recalls. “I said, ‘I love it,’ and never gave it back to him.” The couple has raised three children, including their mentally-challenged daughter, Beth, who is now 52. “She brought us closer together because of the needs she had,” Mollie says. According to David, a successful marriage needs to be worked on, it doesn’t just fall into place. “Love is great, but commitment is just as important,” says David.

perfect paddle

by Yaryna Klimchak | Community Editor

SUP series shows off Sarasota waters

The Sarasota SUP Series will showcase the pristine water conditions Sarasota offers paddlers, while raising funds for Suncoast Charities for Children.

Steve O sprinting to finish at the Siesta Key Classic.

Sarasota offers mangrove tunnels, the Gulf of Mexico and the bay, all with flat calm water on most days. This makes the area the perfect environment for paddle boarding. Rob Alfieri, the founder of the Sarasota Stand Up Paddle Board Series, knows this and wants to share it with others. “What Waikiki is in Hawaii to surfing, is what Sarasota should be to paddle boarding,” says Alfieri For the past five months, the competitive paddle boarder has been organizing the SUP Series to showcase Sarasota’s pristine water and ideal paddling conditions; and an added bonus — giving back to the community. To do so, he partnered with Suncoast Charities for Children. The SUP Series will offer three races for elite paddle boarders and also involves people who are interested in paddling. The first race will be held Saturday,

IF YOU GO SARASOTA SUP SERIES When: Saturday, June 22, Check-in is from 7:30 to 8:45 a.m. Race Starts at 9:15 a.m. 1 to 2 p.m. — Pro Clinic and Kids Paddle 2 to 4 p.m. — Paddle Demos Where: Siesta Key Beach Info: Sign up by visiting SarasotaSUPseries.com UPCOMING: *Saturday, Aug. 24, at Nathan Benderson Park *Saturday, Oct. 12, at Sarasota Sailing Squadron * Times to be determined

June 22, on Siesta Key Public Beach, to mimic a battle-of-thepaddle-type race held in Dana Point, Cali. During that race, there will be a six-mile elite race;

a three-mile open race; and a sprint race that is open to everyone. Alfieri also decided to make the race more interactive for viewers, so instead of doing a long paddle around the island, paddlers will complete 1.5-mile laps that can be seen from the beach. “This way the spectators will be able to see the whole course,” Alfieri said. After the sprint race, paddlers can participate in the 100-yard relay-style sprint race alongside elite paddlers. This means the more novice paddlers will have the chance to experience a new caliber of competition. “It is a way for elite and open racers to be together,” Alfieri said. And, spectators will have more to do than just watch paddle boarding. Alfieri aims to make the series more of a festival, where families can check out vendors, listen to music and

try paddle boarding for free to see what all the hype is about in the growing sport. Even children will get the chance to participate with demos and lessons from professional racers and volunteers during a Kids Paddle session. The next SUP series event will be held Aug. 24, at Nathan Benderson Park and will show off another prime Sarasota paddle-boarding location. And the third of the series, which launches from the Sarasota Sailing Squadron, Oct. 12, will give paddlers the chance to race underneath a Sarasota landmark, the John Ringling Bridge. “The advantage Sarasota has over any other place in the world is the ease of access and amount of pristine flat water,” Alfieri said. The SUP series currently has 35 sponsors and aims to raise at least $5,000 for Suncoast Charities for Children throughout the whole series.

Children weren’t afraid to get a little sandy Wednesday, June 12, during the first session of the Sarasota County Parks and Recreation Sand Sculpting Camp, held on Siesta Key Public Beach. Campers spent the week learning basic and intermediate sand-sculpting techniques, including the skills necessary to

build a basic sandcastle and the advanced techniques required to build arches. “It’s amazing what these kids can create after just a few hours of instruction,” says Bill Knight, a Master Sand Sculptor, who has co-operated the camp for two years. “Once they understand how to correctly pack the sand, they advance pretty quickly.”

Every morning when Dr. Bertram Gold wakes up and every night before he drifts off to sleep, he tells his wife, Renee, that he loves her. The Golds joke and finish each other’s sentences in an energetic exchange that makes everyone around them smile. They met in 1954, at a synagogue, in Brooklyn, N.Y. “Who could resist, he was so cute,” Renee says. Bertram was attracted to Renee’s intelligence, sense of humor and her beauty. He didn’t actually ask Renee to marry him; instead he left a box with a ring on the table after dinner. “We had never even talked about marriage,” Renee says. “‘It’s a big one,’ is what came out of my mouth, and then I said ‘yes.’” The couple agrees that mutual respect has played a large role in keeping their marriage strong. Fifteen years ago, Bertram was diagnosed with cancer. He says, although the doctors at Sarasota Memorial Hospital saved his life, “What kept me alive was my love for her and desire to spend the rest of my life with her.”

Family Disaster Plan • Discuss the type of hazards that could affect your family. Know your home’s vulnerability to storm surge, flooding and wind. • Locate a safe room or the safest areas in your home for each hurricane hazard. In certain circumstances the safest areas may not be your home but within your community. • Determine escape routes from your home and places to meet. • Have an out-of-state friend as a family contact, so all your family members have a single point of contact. • Make a plan now for what to do with your pets if you need to evacuate. • Post emergency telephone numbers by your phones and make sure your children know how and when to call 911. • Check your insurance coverage – flood damage is not usually covered by homeowners insurance. (National Flood Insurance Program.) • Stock non-perishable emergency supplies and a Disaster Supply Kit. • Use a NOAA weather radio. Remember to replace its battery every 6 months, as you do with your smoke detectors.
