a 50% reduction in her business. “I think they called it a ‘slight disruption,’” Parker said, mocking the Downtown Improvement District’s characterization of the Main Street improvement proj-

POLICE FRUGALITY

by David Conway | News Editor

Big budget, questionable results for police City police receive almost $30 milllion in the proposed 2013-14 budget, but the department has fallen short compared to other municipalities. As part of the city’s 2013-14 proposed budget presentation July 8, Sarasota Financial Administration Director John Lege went over a chart comparing

the Sarasota Police Department with 14 other Florida municipal police departments. To focus on the police department was natural: Police spend-

ing represented more than half of all general fund expenditures in the budget, $29.45 million in total. The analysis, however, didn’t seem to justify the spending.

Among those 15 municipalities in fiscal year 2012-13, Sarasota was either average or below average in population, area and population density. The police department was sizable, with

ect. When the Downtown Improvement District — the group spearheading the Main Street improvements — attempted to expand the construction to include new brick crosswalks at Palm Avenue, Parker was prepared to make a stand. She spoke at the July 15 City Commission meeting and asked the commissioners to reject the additional construction, which would shut down the intersection at Palm and Main for 18 work days, for the sake of her business. That aspect of the Main Street improvement efforts was postponed to September, traditionally a slower month for business. Still, the rest of the construction continues, and Parker isn’t the only downtown business owner upset about the construction. Ron Soto is the owner of Soto’s Optical, also on the 1300 block of Main Street, and president of the Sarasota Downtown Merchants Association. He also opposed the construction, calling the entire process “backwards.” From a storeowner’s perspective, Soto said, parking is paramount. He said the stillin-development State Street garage should have been in place before the streetscape improvements began. Soto says the installation of additional bulb-outs and the institution of parallel parking on the north side of a segment of Main Street will result in a shortage of parking spots. “The residents, thinking it was going to create a walkable downtown, were all for it,” Soto said of the Main Street improvements. “I get that, but as far as the merchants are concerned, you need to have a place to park the car before you can walk around.” Ernie Ritz, chairman of the Downtown Improvement District, says there was ample public input in deciding which projects with which to go forward. “We have to understand that it wasn’t a spur-of-the-moment idea we had,” Ritz said. “It took three years to get these plans and hundreds of people — merchants included — coming to meetings and workshops we had.”

the most police staff per 1,000 citizens and the second-most officers per 1,000 citizens. And, yet, in 2012, the city had the second-highest crime rate — 62 crimes per 1,000 people, 17 above the average. The 2013-14 budget includes a reduction in police staff; there will be 17 fewer sworn-officer positions. The department has also worked to reduce operating expenses; 88% of the police budget is now spent on salary and benefits. Still, the new rate of three officers for every 1,000 citizens would only lower Sarasota from second to third highest among the similarly sized municipalities. Police Chief Bernadette DiPino has only been on the job since October, but she says an early focus of her work has been analyzing how to operate more efficiently. In addition to reducing positions, she’s been focused on community-oriented policing: working more closely with individual neighborhoods to better serve the area. She’s also prioritized intelligenceled policing, which included bumping up a part-time criminal analyst to a full-time position in the department’s 2013-14 budget. DiPino believes the work an analyst does — including gathering data on past crimes with an eye toward identifying patterns — will allow the department to operate more efficiently despite carrying fewer officers. “It’s about having an individual who will crunch numbers, but will also allow us to be predictive and proactive in our deployment,” she said. “I think we will be able to still do good police work in a higher-quality way, where we’re predicting where crimes will take place.” She also said it might not be practical to measure Sarasota’s crime rates

Construction between Gulfstream Avenue and Palm Avenue on Main Street has resulted in a reduction in parking spaces near businesses across the street.

The plans for Main Street improvements were developed at Semcon 2010, a city workshop to devise a vision for the future of downtown. The people complaining now, Ritz said, are the vocal minority: people who never went to meetings while plans were being developed and are “totally uninformed.” He believes they’ll see the work pay off in the long term, and he pointed to the 2004 bricking of Lemon Avenue — where he owns a business — as a project that paid dividends. “I don’t know what to tell you about people still complaining — we’re trying to improve downtown,” Ritz said. “When it’s done, we’re going to improve business.” Not all businesses are upset by the improvements. Daniel Christian is the manager of A. Parker’s Books, 1488 Main St., where work crews are tearing up the ground directly in front of the store. Still, Christian said the bookstore hasn’t seen a decline in traffic since construction has begun. “They picked a really good time of year to do it because it’s a slower period, so I don’t know that it’s affected business at all so far,” Christian said. With the construction already under way, all Soto can do now is wish for the best from the repairs. “What we pray and hope is that these guys made a good decision, and by doing the widening of the sidewalks that it’ll bring more people downtown,” Soto said.

against other cities. Sarasota’s population belies the fact that it’s at the center of a larger county, DiPino said, and that it regularly draws in a sizable population of non-residents. “I think with a city like Sarasota, it’s tough to compare apples to apples,” DiPino said. “We’re talking about a city center that has a huge population in a tight area, and you’ve got individuals who come work and vacation here, too.” Ultimately, DiPino believes taxpayers will be content with the money the city is spending on police as long as the department is doing its job effectively. “I think people live in communities because they feel it’s a clean and safe place,” she said. “You want to have a police presence, and a good police response and a good handling of investigations.”

growing pains

by David Conway | News Editor

Budget growth comes with a catch The school board’s 2013-14 budget shows signs of recovery following years of cuts and declining revenues, but board members say they have limited spending options. The tentative Sarasota County School Board fiscal year 2013-14 budget includes increases in both revenues and expenditures, but board members said both of those figures came with strings attached via a legislative mandate. Due to a higher proposed millage rate and an increase in county taxable values, the school board’s proposed tax levy would increase to about $348 million, 6.7% more than the 2012-13 proposed levy. The budget includes a 2% millage rate increase, which rose to 7.970. A portion of the levy, set by the state legislature and required to collect about $70 million in state grants, represents the entirety of the variance over last year. The school board set the rest of the rate, which is slated to remain flat over last year. Operating expenditures are also set to increase for the first time since the Great Re-

cession, rising 4.54% over last year. More than half of the increase — about $10.7 million — is tied to legislative mandates to increase teacher pay, an uptick in retirement benefits and an anticipated rise in health insurance costs, according to Al Weidner, the school district’s deputy chief financial officer. “We got more money, but it came with a lot of strings,” board member Shirley Brown said. “What they gave us is the opportunity for our taxpayers to pay a little bit more.” Despite the slight millage rate bump, the school board is still spending out of reserves to balance the budget.

Weidner said the board was able to reduce $3.8 million in general fund spending from last year. He added that, after seven years of general fund cuts and a reduction of 651 positions over that period, the board was running out of room to draw down spending. “I don’t see anywhere else we can cut,” Weidner said. “I really don’t.” The other major source of the operating budget increase is a $6.2 million rise in purchased services, which is due to an increase in students attending charter schools. The proposed millage rate includes a 1.5 mill property tax that would generate

The board’s list of projects for 2013-14 includes construction and remodeling at 15 schools, building purchases for charter schools and the purchase of 45 school buses. The board approved the advertisement of the proposed budget at Tuesday’s meeting. A public hearing on the budget and millage rate will be held at 5:15 p.m. Tuesday, July 30, and final adoption of the budget is scheduled for a public hearing Sept. 10. More information about the 2013-2014 tentative budget can be found at the Sarasota County Schools website.

Lasting Legacy

After more than two decades with the organization, Reid is preparing for retirement. In 1967, when the Jacksonville, Ala., Boys Club hired J. Mack Reid to teach arts and crafts after his morning college classes, he had no idea the experience would change the course of his life. Reid was studying at Jacksonville State University to be a tax accountant, when a friend suggested he apply for a job at the local Boys Club. Having grown up in the organization himself, he decided to apply. Although he admits he was hoping for something along the lines of coaching basketball, he took the job. After just two weeks of working with the children in an old drugstore-turned-club facility, Reid knew he’d found his calling. He promptly changed his major from accounting to business administration and decided he wanted to work for the organization full-time. Today, after more than 20 years with the Boys and Girls Club of Sarasota County, Reid is preparing for retirement. He served as president and CEO of the local club from 1989 to 2011, when he stepped down and began working from home in a new fundraising position. After two years in the new role, Reid will fully retire from the organization Aug 1. Looking back, he says his early years with the club as a child gave him a greater appreciation for the work he would go on to do in Sarasota. “It really ignited a passion in me,” Reid says about the club. “I didn’t realize the guidance I was getting at the time, but, looking back on it, I realized that’s what I wanted to do for kids.” At the age of 10, Reid joined the club in his hometown of Gadsden, Ala., at the sugges-

He says the experience afforded him many opportunities he would never have had, such as the chance to see his first Alabama football game. “We all piled in this old bus with no windows on a freezing cold November morning,” he says. “The bus ended up breaking down, and we didn’t make it there until after half time. But, it’s experiences like those that I’ll never forget.” Throughout his career, Reid has had an enormous impact on the Boys and Girls Club. In 1970, he helped establish the newly built facility in Sarasota. Reid left in 1975 to work as director at clubs in Alabama and Georgia. In 1987, he left the club in Albany, Ga., for two years to work as a bank executive, where he “felt like a fish out of water.” In 1989, he returned to

Positive influence Throughout his career, J. Mack Reid has made a lasting impression on many young Boys and Girls Club members. Nineteen-year-old Kevin Stalker has been attending the club for 10 years and has been a counselor for three. He was named Youth of the Year in 2012 and says Reid has had a profound influence Sarasota to head up the local club, which was in financial trouble at the time. He was instrumental in tapping into his philanthropic contacts to get the club back on its feet. “Sarasota is a great community, and it rallied around us,” says Reid. “That proved to me that the community feels we deserve a club like this.”

on his life. “He’s my biggest role model,” Stalker says. “He started in the same place I did, and he became CEO. My brother and I never really had a father figure, and he’s been a mentor to my brother. He’s shown me right from wrong by example. I’m going to become CEO one day because of what he taught me.” In retirement, Reid, 65, will serve as a consultant for Boys and Girls Clubs throughout the Midwest and Southeast. “I’m going to miss the kids,” he says. “That’s the reason we all get into this. But, now I’ll have more time to come volunteer and mentor. I want to come back and coach softball.”

Sarasota man facilitated peace during Korean War James Ballard, stationed in Germany during the Korean War, worked as an Air Force intelligence specialist. As the 60th anniversary of the end of the Korean War approaches Saturday, the Sarasota Observer commemorates the service of United States veterans who served their country, not only on the front lines, but also from afar. During the war, Sarasota resident James Ballard served as an intelligence specialist with the Air Force Security Service, and he was stationed in Germany. After completing the two required years of Air Force ROTC at the University of Kentucky, Ballard enlisted in an active-duty Navy Reserve unit, and, Nick Friedman following his disJames Ballard charge in 1951, he enlisted in the Air Force. “I always wanted to be a pilot or navigator, because I was in engineering,” says Ballard. “But at the outbreak of the war, so many people were enlisting in the Air Force that there was a two-year waiting list for training, so I decided to go into intelligence.” His job during the war was to write intelligence reports and provide pilots with the information they needed, along with other French and English servicemen stationed with him in Landsberg, Germany. Together, they were monitoring the Soviet Union’s provision of pilots and aircraft to the North Koreans. Ballard says that, thankfully, there was no combat in the area, but that the border between East and West Germany was a hotbed that could have erupted if things had gone differently. “It was a very delicate situation,” he says. “I’m glad we were able to keep the peace there.” During his three years in Germany, Ballard says he earned a newfound respect for its people and culture, despite the lasting negative impression many Americans had of Germans following World War II. He says the experience was eye-opening for him, and he hopes the United States will continue to do its part to maintain peace. “I’m proud that I had an opportunity to serve my country and do something for it,” says Ballard. “We have so much freedom, and this country provides us with so much. I think everybody should do a little something to give back. It’s like JFK said: ‘Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.’”

+ Sarasota boards OK column donation for Five Points Park The Parks and Recreation Department and the Downtown Improvement District boards heard a report Tuesday on the possible donation and relocation of a Corinthian column from its current home near the Five Points roundabout. City staff recommended the pillar be moved to Selby Five Points Park, located near an existing historic clock and historic marker. Both the Parks and DID boards voted unanimously to recommend accepting the column and placing it in Five Points Park. The column, which marks the 100th anniversary of the landing of Scottish settlers in Sarasota, has a renewed historical significance at this time, according to city senior planner Clifford Smith. “In May 1913, the governor signed the enabling act to create the city of Sarasota, to become effective as of Jan. 1, 1914,” Smith said at Tuesday’s DID meeting. “We’re in a period, between May and January, marking the 100th anniversary of the city of Sarasota.” The cost of relocating the column is estimated at $1,650. Final review of the donation is at the discretion of the city manager, who can handle the dona-

According to a July 22 project update, crews will begin work — including the removal of curbs, trees and sidewalk — on the new segment, because construction between Gulfstream Avenue and Palm Avenue has moved close to completion. This week, crews are completing the installation of Silva Cells for tree growth and pouring curbs and putting in irrigation systems for landscaping areas between Gulfstream and Palm. Demolition on the west side of the street, at Pine Place and Main Street, took place this week. Crews are preparing for further demolition on the north side of Main Street, just west of Goodrich Avenue.

Lakewood Ranch-based Center for Building Hope, which provides free programs and services for cancer patients and their families, will focus on a new affiliation with the renowned Moffitt Cancer Center, in Tampa. The two organizations this week announced an affiliation that will expand Center for Building Hope’s services to Moffitt, allowing the organization to provide onsite programming there. “It’s a big project,” said Andrea Feldmar, Center for Building Hope’s program director. “We’re doing our due diligence (to see what we still need to do). We’re going to work out the details and the strategy (in the coming weeks). It’s a quantum leap in growth for us.” The affiliation with Moffitt has been actively in negotiations since October, at which time officials from Moffitt toured the center’s Lakewood Ranch campus. Feldmar said the two organizations still are finalizing details of the agreement, but Center for Building Hope plans to offer onsite programs at Moffitt’s two existing facilities, as well as one that currently is under construction. Programming, which will be similar to what is offered at CBH’s campus and may include yoga, art or nutrition classes and educational forums with specialists on cancer-treatment options, is expected to start this fall. Moffitt’s Dr. Sarah Hoffe, a radiation oncologist, will serve as liaison for the

CBH also announced this week the launch of its $5 million “Say I Do” campaign, to fund the network. Singer/songwriter and two-time breastcancer survivor Margo Rey and her fiancé, comedian Ron White, will lead the fundraising effort on behalf of CBH’s Brides Against Breast Cancer program.

INTERCOASTAL MEDICAL GROUP

welcomes Louis H. Cohen, MD

Board Certified, Urology

Visit Sarasota Sports Commission Director of Sports Nicole Rissler says she couldn’t have written a more perfect job description for herself. In September, the former athlete, volleyball coach and sports-marketing employee brought experience on both ends of the athletic-event spectrum to her new position as the face of Sarasota’s ever-growing sports-tourism industry. “It was great coming back,” Rissler said. “This job allows me to combine my passion for sports with my experience in marketing and events. “I get to wake up every morning and do something I love,” she says. “It’s honestly the perfect job for me.” Having previously worked for Visit Sarasota County in sports marketing until 2005, Rissler says the county had grown during her time away. With the renovation of Ed Smith Stadium, expansion of IMG, construction of Nathan Benderson Park, as well as other developments, Rissler says the timing was perfect for her to return. “Eight years ago, Sarasota was just beginning to get into sports tourism,” says Rissler. “It’s incredible to see the impact our increased venues and resources are already having, and I want to see the industry continue to grow.” In her first year on the job, Rissler has worked with staff to revise Visit Sarasota County’s grant process from an annual to a monthly one, and she’s had her hand in a number of projects aimed to bring national and international events to Sarasota. She worked on the Pan-American Masters Championship swimming event and continues to help plan the 2014 IBCPC Dragon Boat festival and the 2017 World Rowing Championships. “I think of myself as the facilitator,” she says. “My job is to get the right people sitting at the table to make events happen. I don’t put on the events, but I do everything possible to make sure they’re successful and have what they need. I’m the spoke in the middle of the wheel.” Most recently, Rissler joined a delegation of representatives on a trip to Lucerne,

Nicole Rissler began her position in September.

Switzerland, to pitch Nathan Benderson Park as the venue for the 2017 World Rowing Championships. She says the presentation was well received, and that in early August the FISA Council will make its venue recommendation, which the FISA Congress will approve Sept. 2. Rissler says landing the bid would have an enormous impact on Sarasota — the event itself would have an estimated $25 million economic impact, and its television broadcast would help put Sarasota on the map as an international sports destination. “I’ve always said that if we had the venues to compete, we would win more often than not,” says Rissler. “Who wouldn’t want to come here? And, now, we’re in that position; we have the world-class facilities.” Rissler will present information on the value of sports tourism in our community during a free event Thursday, July 25, at Gold Coast Eagle Distributing, 7051 Wireless Court. She’ll give details on the Sarasota County Sports Commission’s new housing bureau, which will work with area hotels and event holders to secure lodging and calculate room rates during the event.

Observer Media Group notches 13 first place Florida Press awards Last year was another newsworthy year for the Observer Media Group newspapers. During the Florida Press Association’s annual conference, held July 18, in Orlando, the industry organization recognized the Observer Media Group newspapers in multiple categories for its 2012 Better Weekly Newspaper Contest. This year’s contest included a total of 1,641 entries in 43 categories for three circulation divisions: 15,000 or more; 15,000 to 7,000; and 7,000 or fewer. Overall, the Observer Media Group’s papers took home 50 awards. Notching a top award was the Business Observer, which tied for first place in the sweepstakes cup. The sweepstakes award

is determined by an accumulation of points for most wins in a division. In total, the Business Observer notched 13 awards, including five first-place wins, five second-place wins and three third-place wins in Division C (circulation under 7,000). The Business Observer’s first-place wins include: Overall Graphic Design (Nicole Thompson, Kat Hughes and Foster Barnes); Education Reporting (Jean Gruss); Best Obituary (Mark Gordon and Pam Eubanks); Business Reporting (Mark Gordon); Health, Medical and Science Reporting (Mark Gordon); and Tax Watch (Jean Gruss), an open-circulation award given for reporting on state and local taxes. For Gordon’s first-place win in Health,

Medical and Science Reporting for a story titled the “Beat Goes On,” judges said, “Well-researched, well-written, supporting graphics, strong photo, nice typography work to create a powerful package.” In total, the Observer Media Group notched 13 first-place awards for all of its newspapers: the Sarasota Observer, the Longboat Observer, the East County Observer, the Pelican Press and the Business Observer. In addition, the Observer Media Group received 21 second-place awards and 16 third-place awards. The Sarasota Observer, competing in Division A (circulation more than 15,000), notched two first-place wins: Best Headline (staff) and Informational Graphic (Nicole Thompson). The Sarasota Observer also received second place in the General Excellence category. The East County Observer, also competing in Division A, took home one first-place award in the Special Section category for

its 2012 Back to School special section. It also received six third-place awards. The Pelican Press, competing in Division B (circulation 7,000 to 15,000), took home three first-place awards: Front-page Makeup (Nancy Schwartz and Nicole Thompson); Community History (Yaryna Klimchak); and Feature Story: Non-profile (Alex Mahadevan).

’Tis the season: for tax rates It’s that time of year. All of our taxing authorities are in the midst of budgeting for next year. And for taxpayers, it’s easy to get a bad case of “MEGO” — “My Eyes Glaze Over” — when all of the news reports come out about proposed millage rates (aka property-tax rates). Especially when you hear the same old songs — our government bodies reciting the annual “woe-is-us” refrain of not enough money to provide the services taxpayers are demanding. Welcome to just about every household’s world. In the fog of all of these numbers, it is indeed easy to lose perspective. For instance, the Sarasota City Commission last week adopted a maximum millage rate of 3.172 for the 2013-2014 fiscal year, an 8.5% increase. While that would be a big jump — certainly well above the nation’s inflation rate — when compared to the Sarasota County School District and Sarasota County, city property taxes comprise only 19% of your local taxes. As the dollar bill and millage-rate table show, the biggest portion of your property taxes funds public schools. And yet, school funding typically tends to get the least amount of public scrutiny. In Sarasota County public schools, there’s a case to be made the district certainly is doing more with less. According to district figures, the amount of money spent per student has contracted 11% since the 2007-2008 school year. Consider:

WHERE YOUR LOCAL TAX DOLLARS GO

WHERE YOUR SCHOOL MONEY IS SLATED TO GO FOR 2013-14 Instruction $280,572,996 48% Facilities Acquisition/Const. $55,473,127 9% Transfers Out $49,701,354 8% Plant Operations $34,290,237 6% Debt Service $30,886,316 5% Pupil Personnel Services $23,806,058 4% Food Service $17,343,208 3% School Administration $16,852,471 3% Pupil Transportation Services $16,486,807 3% Community Services $14,154,519 2% Plant Maintenance $13,822,771 2% Central Services $13,154,449 2% Instructional Staff Training $4,100,889 1% Instructional Media Services $3,685,622 1% Instructional Technology $3,427,557 1% Curriculum Development $3,328,930 1% Admin.

What’s more, district budget figures show the district has reduced its total staffing count 11% in that period, from 5,848 to an expected 5,197 staffers for the 20132014 school year. And yet, student enrollment will be almost equal in the next year versus what it was when the economic downturn began in the 2007-08 school year — roughly 37,840 students. And student performance is holding steady. Sarasota public schools continue to

rank among the highest in the state. But while the school district is doing more with less, taxpayers have been paying more — not necessarily in aggregate dollars but in higher tax rates. School district data show the millage rate has risen five out of the past six years, or 12% since 2007-08 — from 7.12 mills in 2007-08 to a proposed 7.97 mills. Here’s one other data point worth noting:

The Legislature is making Sarasota County residents carry a larger and larger share of the state-required funding for Florida’s public schools. To balance funding for all districts, some of Florida’s 67 counties are donor counties. Sarasota is one of those. As a result, the state has increased the required local millage rate for Sarasota County 27% since the 2007-08 school year.

EXCERPTS: ON THE ZIMMERMAN-MARTIN FUROR Black historian-author Shelby Steele and “O’Reilly Factor” host, Bill O’Reilly, published and broadcast their positions on the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin controversy July 21 in The Wall Street Journal and July 22 on O’Reilly’s Fox News talk show, respectively. If you missed them, look them up. Steele: http://online.wsj.com/ article/SB10001424127887324 448104578618681599902640. html?KEYWORDS=Shelby+Steele O’Reilly: http://www.foxnews. com/on-air/oreilly/2013/07/23/billoreilly-president-obama-and-race-problem What follows are two excerpts from their commentaries: “The civil-rights establishment’s mistake was to get ahead of itself, to be seduced by its own poetic truth even when there was no evidence to support

it. And even now its leaders call for a Justice Department investigation, and they long for civil lawsuits to be filed— hoping against hope that some leaf of actual racial victimization will be turned over for all to see. This is how a once-great social movement looks when it becomes infested with obsolescence. “One wants to scream at all those outraged at the Zimmerman verdict: Where is your outrage over the collapse of the black family? Today’s civilrights leaders swat at mosquitoes like Zimmerman when they have gorillas on their back. Seventy-three percent of all black children are born without fathers married to their mothers. And you want to bring the nation to a standstill over George Zimmerman? “There are vast career opportunities, money and political power to be gleaned from the specter of Mr. Zimmerman as a racial profiler/murderer; but there is only hard and selfless work to be done in

tackling an illegitimacy rate that threatens to consign blacks to something like permanent inferiority. If there is anything good to be drawn from the Zimmerman/ Martin tragedy, it is only the further revelation of the corruption and irrelevance of today’s civil-rights leadership.” Shelby Steele, July 21 “The sad truth is that from the President on down, our leadership has no clue, no clue at all about how to solve problems within the black community. And many are frightened to even broach the issue. That’s because race hustlers and the grievance industry have intimidated the so-called ‘conversation,’ turning any valid criticism of AfricanAmerican culture into charges of racial bias. “So many in power simply walk away leaving millions of law abiding AfricanAmericans to pretty much fend for themselves in violent neighborhoods. You want racism? That’s racism.” Bill O’Reilly, July 22

+ Patriotism is dying

Dear Editor: To have the city of Sarasota art snobs turn down the Iwo Jima statue is a lesson in what really matters to this town’s leaders.  What matters (to the leaders) is having something as useless as an empty picture frame titled “art” as it frames the comings and goings of water traffic; or a pile of cars dancing to the tune of a horrible accident.  What matters is a tangle of wire of which no one can guess its purpose. What doesn’t matter is the lives given so our flag could be raised in all its glory on a foreign land or that it wasn’t white, brown, black, yellow or red, but a combination of brave men who thought our flag worth raising.  What doesn’t matter is the beauty of our brave men and women fighting to save other brothers and sisters across the oceans.  What doesn’t matter is that so many of those soldiers gave their lives before they reached their 21st birthdays. What does matter is “art” no one understands, although the real snobs will swear they do.  What matters is a red metal horse that destroys the real beauty of the

animal; squares tilted up on one corner are considered art, while the real beauty of a homecoming is tainted by a reader as “a sailor forcing himself on a nurse.” Trust me, that nurse was as thrilled as the sailor to hug and kiss everyone in sight when the war ended and those left alive returned home. My dad served in the Navy, and, although he stayed stateside, uncles on both sides of the family went to the worst areas.  One came home with frostbite on his feet and the skin falling off his toes; he was the lucky one.  Another came home with the indelible picture seared in his mind of a child bathing in a tub.  The “water” was blood and entrails from the enemy. That uncle left a happy-go-lucky young man and returned mired in alcoholism and nightmares that never ended. These men and all the others deserve better than to have the statue that represents how this country strives to preserve freedom and defeat tyranny discarded as though it’s less than a piece of trash. Sadly, patriotism is dying in this country and it seems to be fading in Sarasota, too. Maggie DiGiovanni Sarasota

1977

Siesta Key residents with a sweet tooth could also get a show if they stopped by Richard Webb’s Southgate Mall ice-cream parlor. In addition to serving up small-batch ice cream without artificial flavors or coloring, Webb provided family entertainment in the form of his clowning character, Mr. Wabbit. The magician and entertainer would dress in face paint and costume to provide entertainment for his customers. — According to the July 28, 1977, Observer archives.

1984

The United States Marine Corps selected 24-year-old Siesta Key resident James Schmidt for honor guard duty at Camp David and the White House. The prestigious selection serves ceremonial and protective purposes, and Schmidt was one of only two Marines selected for the position that year. Schmidt traveled to Marine headquarters in Washington, D.C., to learn protocol and etiquette and then spent a six-month, breaking-in period at Camp David. Selected immediately after boot camp, Schmidt’s appointment to serve President Reagan was uncommon. Selected Marines are typically older and more experienced. — According to the July 25, 1984, Observer archives

The first El Toro Bravo Restaurant was established in 1982 in Roswell, New Mexico by David and Ruth Wise, Ruben’s sister. While managing the El Toro Bravo, Ruben dreamed of owning his own restaurant one day and along with his wife Connie Caban, established El Toro Bravo #2 in Sarasota 8 years ago. El Toro Bravo serves recipes from the “Best of the Best.” Chile Colorado from Ensenada, Stacked Enchiladas from Northern New Mexico and a number of Mexican dishes from Southern California. What makes El Toro Bravo different from other Mexican Restaurants is that Chef Ruben handpicks the vegetables and the salsa is made fresh daily. As the business grows, Chef Ruben and Connie want to give back to charities such as Angel’s Attic, Belize Children Orphanage and World Vision. El Toro Bravo is the ONLY Mexican Restaurant that serves truly “Southwestern Mexican Cuisine.” Chef Ruben wants you to feel like a friend and neighbor. Customer service is top priority. Reservations are accepted. Come and discover a new dining experience!

Matthew Chapman expected the worst. The then Sarasota Military Academy sophomore knew his mom, Nicole, wasn’t kidding around; this time she meant business. So, when the two climbed into the car last spring and headed toward the beach, Chapman had a feeling he wouldn’t be having fun in the sun. Instead, the two were headed out to an early-morning practice with the Sarasota Storm Tri Club — the first of many practices during the eightweek camp. Nicole Chapman, who is the president of the Sarasota Storm Tri Club, had signed her son up for the camp as punishment for missed homework assignments and bad grades. And, unbeknownst to him, he was scheduled to compete in the Top Gun Triathlon, at Fort De Soto Park, at the end of the camp. Chapman, who had no triathlon experience, aside from assisting Alex Miller in the Florida International Triathlon 2012 as a relay, woke up early every Saturday morning and participated in grueling workouts. But, aside from occasionally giving his mom a hard time about the training, he took it all in stride and learned the value of hard work. “It was OK,” Chapman says. “From a physical fitness standpoint, at least I was getting something out of it. It was much easier than I thought it would be. It was good experience with physical fitness.”

“I wanted him to learn what hard work and dedication is,” Nicole Chapman says. His hard work and dedication paid off. He finished fifth in the 15- to 19year-old age group at last year’s Top Gun Triathlon. Now, Matthew is gearing up for his second Top Gun Triathlon — this time without the added pressure. Matthew will compete in the Top triathlon July 27, at Fort De Soto Park. This time around, he is going into the

event with little training. He has participated in a few open-water swims and training sessions with the Sarasota Storm Tri Club. “It’s more on my own will,” Chapman says. “It’s nothing hard. I make the best of them. I’m not the type of kid who is going to sandbag it. If I’m going to do it, I at least want to get something out of it.” After wearing a black speedo last year, he hopes his new gold speedo will help him match or break last year’s time of one hour, six minutes. “Wearing a black speedo is one thing, but now I have to do something more fantastic,” he says. “I dare to be different.” He’ll be one of more than 25 Sarasota Storm triathletes competing in the Top Gun Triathlon. Founded in 2005 through the YMCA, the Sarasota Storm Tri Club became its own entity in 2007. Today, the club is home to roughly 200 active members, ranging from 11-year-old children to individuals in their 80s. The club’s season runs from April to November, and members often travel across the country to compete. “The sport is really exploding,” Nicole Chapman says. “We like to be a good home base for people to meet other people to train with. We’re trying to grow the sport with the younger kids, too. It’s a good experience to know what physical hard work and dedication is.” For more information on the Sarasota Storm Tri Club visit sarasotastorm.org.

CAMP SPOTLIGHT

THURSDAY, JULY 25, 2013

mmunity Editor by Yaryna Klimchak | Co

Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh, here I am at:

{ CAMPER SPOTLIGHT }

Scents of tomatoes and pasta float through the air as Chef Camp campers at Mattison’s Forty-One prepare to serve a special lunch to their guests. Chef Camp offered four sessions through the summer, during which area chefs taught children how to sauté and grill, and make pasta, sauce and desserts. The “Taste of Tuscany” session ran July 15 to July 19. Fifteen campers participated. During the camp, Mattison’s Forty-One chefs Jeff Sladky, Ken Smith, Ray LaJoie and Aaron Mortensen taught campers proper table setting, event logistics, kitchen safety and, of course, how to cook the meals.

CHEF CAMP

Brianna Wall, 15 years old What have you done this week? The first day of camp we prepared food. We also went over some safety rules on how to prepare food and how to use the equipment properly. The second day we started cooking and cooked a lot of food. What are you serving your guests today? We are serving them pasta with Bolognese sauce. We have a salad with a cheese soufflé; and for dessert — we have the cheesecake. What is your favorite part of camp? My favorite part is getting to know people and getting to meet new people everyday.

Samantha Reisky, 11, tops the arugula salad with tomatoes.

Jennifer Woodford, 14, wipes off any excess Bolognese sauce from the side of the plates before serving.

SKIN CANCER

The most common of all cancers Some skin cancers can also be deadly. The good news is that most skin cancers can be cured very easily if detected early. Early detection is the most important step in curing skin cancer, but most skin cancers have no symptoms. They lay silent for years without a sign. The most important thing to do is to have regular skin exams with your dermatologist as well as self skin exams at home. Self examinations can alert you to changes in your skin and aid in the early detection of skin cancer. You may find it helpful to have your dermatologist do a full body exam first to assure you that any existing spots, freckles, or moles are normal.

Your dermatologist can also spot the dangerous silent skin cancers before they become more aggressive or deadly. Hawthorne Clinic and Research Center is a multispecialty medical practice which offers a full spectrum of dermatologic care, MoHS Surgery in addition to oculofacial plastics, allergy, asthma and immunology. our boardcertified physicians are dedicated to patient care and scientific innovation.
