+ Sarasota taps into its inner diva Sarasota, as well as local businesses, will be in the spotlight this weekend on E!’s show, “Total Divas.” Natalie Neidhart, better known as WWE diva Natalya, married fellow WWE superstar Tyson Kidd (T.J. Wilson) June 26, at a private home on Siesta Key, with a reception following at Michael’s On East. The first episode featuring the wedding-planning process will air Sunday, Aug. 18, on E!. Sarasota wedding planner Nicole Kaney put the wedding together, and 60 guests traveled to Sarasota to partake in the festivities.

+ Going to the chapel ... Sarasota resident Ethan Biter proposed to his nowfiancé, Molly Klauber, in late June on a private cruise in the Bahamas. Biter and Klauber met through mutual friends and share a passion for adventure and travel. The future bride is assistant general manager at Michael’s On East and also owns Go To Girl, a small consulting firm. The future groom is currently a Navy lieutenant commander stationed in Jacksonville and is serving as an instructor pilot. The couple is currently planning their intimate spring wedding in Sarasota.

A proposed 18-story downtown hotel would allow Sarasota to have its cake and eat it, too. In June 2012, the city was forced to choose between two hotel proposals for a site on North Palm Avenue. An independent Floridays Development Co. boutique hotel beat out a proposed Embassy Suites. Though the choice was unanimous, members of the decision-making committee wrestled with selecting one over the other. “They are both excellent but serve two different purposes,” said Randy Welker, then the downtown economic development coordinator at the time. “One is more weekend- and businessoriented, and the other is a unique boutique hotel. I wish we could have both.” Welker’s wish appears to be coming true. Jebco Ventures Inc., which lost out on the Palm Avenue hotel space, has submitted pre-application documents to build an Embassy Suites at 202 N. Tamiami Trail. The proposed plan includes 200 suites on 10 floors, a 4,000-squarefoot restaurant and a 4,000-squarefoot ballroom/conference area, all atop a six-story parking garage with 200 parking spaces. Jim Bridges, CEO of Jebco Ventures, says the plans for the hotel really began to ramp up again recently. He says he’s not concerned about other hotels in development in the area, because the company’s market analysis suggests there’s plenty of room for this project. “I’ve been seriously working on it for the last three months, due to the market conditions and the changes

and what we see in the marketplace,” Bridges said. “We really began to take a second look at it — we looked at the surveys we’ve done, and the timing’s right.” Bridges is excited about the new location, which he says allows the hotel to serve as a gateway to Sarasota. He praised the design of the proposed Sarasota hotel, which may buck some people’s expectations of what a typical Embassy Suites would look like. According to the Embassy Suites website, there are more than 200 Embassy Suites hotels in the United States, Canada and Latin America. “The architecture here is very modern,” Bridges said. “You could put any flag in the world on there and it would look like it would belong.” Bridges said he thinks his group will be ready to file for a building permit within the next 90 days. Construction on the hotel is currently projected to take 16 months, and Bridges said he

Low-speed vehicle debate set to accelerate County officials will discuss controversial proposals to open Siesta Key roads to vehicles limited to no more than 25 mph during an Aug. 20 meeting. Siesta Key residents will have a chance Tuesday, Aug. 20, to get up to speed on proposals to open more of the island’s roads to a controversial type of vehicle. County officials will run the public forum to discuss a proposed reduction in the speed

limit on a segment of Midnight Pass Road. Also up for debate is an existing proposal to allow low-speed vehicles (LSVs) on the half-mile stretch of Midnight Pass Road between Sanderling Road and Vista Hermosa Circle, as well as to gauge public opinion on opening other

Siesta Key roads to the speedgoverned buggies. The meeting will pit residents who own lowspeed vehicles and want greater access

TAC recommendation to lower the speed limit on Midnight Pass Road but did an about-face when she realized the move would allow LSVs on the two-lane road many Siesta residents use for their daily commute to work. “My big concern, and my only concern,” Patterson said, “is that low-speed vehicles can only go 25 mph, and that is going to seem awfully slow to most of the folks who aren’t tourists and actually have to go to work. A lot of people will be passing on the narrow, two-lane road, and that will be problematic.” The issue of low-speed vehicles was raised at the Siesta Key Association’s Aug. 1 meeting. Safety topped the board’s concerns. Siesta residents reported dangerous encounters with low-speed vehicles, particularly at night. “We all want safe roads, there’s no debate about that,” SKA board member Catherine Luckner said. “It could be good to lower the speed limit, but it’s scary to

think about tourists coming here and not knowing where and when it’s safe to drive these things.” “I am in agreement that I do not want to see the speed limit lowered to see these vehicles given access,” SKA board member Michael Shay said. “It’s a safety issue.” The Aug. 20 meeting will be an important step to measure community opinion on the low-speed vehicle debate, Wiggins said. Residents are encouraged to fill out online surveys, available on the Sarasota County website, www.scgov.net/PublicWorks/Pages/TransportationPlanning. aspx, that will use county officials to draft policy. Patterson also encouraged Siesta residents to learn more about the different proposals to be discussed and to voice their opinions. “I think people who live on the Key and care about the quality of their roads should go,” Patterson said. “People who are most affected by an issue are usually the last to know.”

PARKING BREAK

3

by David Conway | News Editor

Burns Square tenants bemoan loss of lot After the city allowed its lease of a Burns Square parking lot to expire, business and property owners in the area are demanding a solution to parking problems.

Signs promising free public parking convenient to Burns Square are still standing near the lot at Orange Avenue and Laurel Street, but it’s a promise the city no longer stands behind. An agreement between the city and the owner of the parking lot, Saunders Family Limited Partnership, which allowed for public parking in the lot, expired July 25. It’s a decision that’s taken some Burns Square business and property owners by surprise. Cherylyn Van Kirk, a member of the Burns Court Neighborhood Association, was named the point person regarding parking in the area while the city debated whether to renew the agreement. Despite the fact that she has been taking the lead on the issue since the spring, she wasn’t made aware of the city’s decision until Aug. 2. Van Kirk, owner of Starflower Essentials, 411 S. Pineapple Ave., criticized the city’s lack of communication with Burns Square stakeholders. She said that the decision to let the parking lot agreement expire “outraged” merchants because the parking lot, with 63 spaces, was essential for those working at and patronizing businesses in the area. Beyond that, she said the city has been unclear as to what the next step will be to address parking needs in Burns Square. “We don’t quite understand why Burns Court and Burns Square is being undervalued as a viable contingency for the city, why we’re being treated like this,” Van Kirk said. The decision was made to let the parking license agreement with Saunders Family Limited Partnership expire after the City Commission did not direct staff to renew the contract, city Parking Director Mark Lyons said. City commissioners discussed renewing the lease at a July 3 commission meeting. Commissioner Susan Chapman said the onus should be on businesses, not the city, to secure parking for private use. Lyons said the city has communicated that directive to Burns Square business owners. He said it was still early in the process, and that there were hundreds of street spaces in the area to use while multiple avenues are explored. “We certainly have encouraged them to form some other business group — similar to our Downtown Improvement District within downtown, or some other sort of

mechanism — that would help them fund parking within their district,” Lyons said. Denise Kowal, founder and chairwoman of the Sarasota Chalk Festival, is also the owner of a building in Burns Court that contains residential and commercial units. She said her building — mixed use, with frontage on Orange Avenue — represents something the city is seeking in creating a walkable city center. In exchange for preserving property of that nature, which frequently has little or no parking space, Kowal thinks the city should fill the parking gap. “If they want people like me to maintain a historic structure, then they have to have the sustainable elements in place so that the area can continue to prosper,” Kowal said. Kowal pointed to the Downtown Parking Master Plan from 2005, which listed a parking garage at Laurel Street and Orange Avenue as the No. 3 priority behind garages

on Palm Avenue and State Street, as evidence that the city knows Burns Square is in need of parking beyond what’s available on the street. She said the city should stick to that plan, rather than leaving the fate of Burns Square parking in the hands of the commission. “You can’t reinvent the wheel in a small committee, which is what they’re trying to do with this situation,” Kowal said. “They’re trying to design something different by committee, which is ridiculous; we already did this.” Lyons, along with City Manager Tom Barwin, will meet with the Burns Square Neighborhood Association Sept. 5 to discuss the parking situation in the area. Van Kirk said she was looking forward to finally discovering what the city had in mind for Burns Square businesses in need of parking. Kowal, on the other hand, expressed her dismay that a meeting was

even necessary in the first place. “I find it frustrating that we’re having a meeting about something that is 100% a no-brainer,” Kowal said.

Pension liabilities: the elephant in the city Sarasota’s unfunded pension obligations are widely acknowledged as a serious issue that needs to be addressed — so why isn’t more being done? There’s little disagreement among city commissioners that Sarasota’s ever-looming pension liabilities are a problem. Commissioner Paul Caragiulo: “It’s not a question of whether the bomb goes off, it’s a question of how.” Commissioner Susan Chapman: “There is a point — and we’re at it now — when our pension costs are taking away from our ability to provide city services.” Commissioner Suzanne Atwell: “Although we’ve been taking proactive steps to address (our unfunded pension liabilities), we have to do more.” Mayor Shannon Snyder: “Some people say it’s really bad, and some people say it’s really, really bad. That’s the only thing people are debating.” According to the city’s 2012 comprehensive annual financial report, the city has almost $296 million in unfunded actuarial accrued liabilities from pensions. That number is based on a 7% assumed rate of return for investments that fund the pensions — a rate some commissioners have called unrealistic. A 6% rate of return, which those commissioners say is closer to accurate, leaves the city with about $376.5 million in unfunded liability.

With such harmony among members of the city’s primary governing body, a question arises: Why isn’t this issue being dealt with more proactively? Snyder says there’s a lack of political will in City Hall to deal with such a daunting issue. He has harped on a refrain that Sarasota is Detroit, 10 years out — a comparison other commissioners roll their eyes at — and foresees the city dealing with the issue in bankruptcy court in the future rather than confronting a harsh reality today. His preferred course of action is to begin to contract out police services with the county sheriff’s office. The savings could then go to fulfilling existing police-pension obligations. “There’s a financial initiative for the county to jump in and help us with this issue,” Snyder said. “They would rather help us out now than save this mess in 10 years.” Chapman doesn’t think that goes far enough. She said it was regrettable that there were expectations of lush pensions for employees, but that it’s an expectation that can’t be met. Her proposed solution is to shift all city pensions to defined contribution plans, such as a 401(k). It’s a move that the city has begun to make for general employees: Those hired

before a 2011 agreement can choose between a defined benefit pension and a defined contribution plan, and those hired afterward are locked into a defined contribution plan. Snyder believes soon police may become amenable to a defined contribution plan, an option they’ve stood firmly in opposition to in the past. “I was surprised, for general employees, how many people went from defined benefit to contribution,” Snyder said. “When the average police officer really comes to terms that they won’t get what they’re promised, I think you’ll see the same thing.” Caragiulo has a different answer for why anything isn’t getting done: It’s complicated. That means not only that developing a solution demands careful consideration, but that there are so many moving parts — including many on a state level — that it’s not possible to come up with a quick fix. The challenge for the city now, he said, is establishing a new normal. He, too, advocates for a leaner police department, so that they might be able to maintain better benefits with fewer people. “There’s no way you can form additional

payroll costs,” Caragiulo said. “Pension costs are at 80% of what the payroll number is — it’s 10 times what it was just a few years ago.” Even dealing with the local aspect of the issue is challenging. In collective bargaining with city employees, Caragiulo said, people have become entrenched on both sides. Mistrust, built up over the years since the economic downtown, is just another obstacle that must be cleared to get to a solution. Down the road, if the market improves to the point that the city can bond out its pension shortfall, he’d like to see the city get out of the pension business entirely, migrating its costs to the state-managed Florida Retirement System. A platform for considering these issues is the city’s second annual State of the City’s Pensions workshop, which will be held Aug. 23. Snyder credited the city for meeting more frequently in the past 18 months on the issue of pensions and said the severity of the issue has become clearer as a result. Still, Snyder said, a more acute awareness of the problem hasn’t led to significant progress on a solution. Unless the mindset of the city changes, he finds it hard to believe that progress will be made. “Everybody’s still wanting to believe that there’s a money tree somewhere, and there isn’t,” Snyder said.

what slow season?

5

by Nolan Peterson | News Editor

Sarasota tourism sees another banner year Sarasota County tourism revenue grew by more than 10% last year, continuing a trend in the tourism industry’s growth. The numbers are in, and Sarasota’s tourism industry is looking good. Buoyed by an unusually profitable slow season, Sarasota saw another year of growth this year in both the total number of visitors to the county and the dollars those tourists spent, continuing a yearslong trend in growth in the tourism industry that has brought valuable tax revenue to the area. According to Visit Sarasota County, Sarasota County had 740,300 visitors in fiscal year 2013, which ended June 30, spending $640,974,200 in the area economy. That is a 5.8% jump in visitors from fiscal year 2012 and a 10.2% increase in direct spending. “These are extraordinary increases,� said Virginia Haley, president of Visit Sarasota County, referring to the increased level of direct spending by tourists. “We’ve seen more consumer confidence and a whole lot more spending across the board.� In March, Visit Sarasota projected only a 3% increase in tourist visits for 2013. The better-than-expected results come after an unusually active summer season, generally the slow season. Haley attributes the increase in tourism to the improving economy, as well as several high-profile events such as June’s PanAm Masters swimming competition and the Sarasota Cup soccer tournament. “Any time we expose people to Sarasota, it’s a good thing,� Haley said. Business leaders on Siesta Key report that 2013 has been one of the best tourism years in recent memory. “Our visitors are up, our business is up. Things are looking good,� said Cheryl Gaddie, president of the Siesta Key Village Association. “What a difference from three

years ago.� Kevin Cooper, executive director of the Siesta Key Chamber of Commerce, said the return rate of visitors is higher for Siesta Key than most other Florida tourist destinations. “We have a high retention rate for visitors, so continuing to introduce people to the island is vital to us,� Cooper said. “We want people to know about Siesta Key.� Data from the Sarasota County Tax Collector paints a positive picture for the area tourism industry. Asked if 2013 will be record-breaking year for tourism revenue in Sarasota County, Haley said, “I don’t see how it can’t be.

There’s just no way we won’t come out on top.� With three months of revenue left to be calculated for 2013, Sarasota County has already raised $12,179,818 in revenue from the Tourist Development Tax — eclipsing the total revenue reported for 2011. This comes after multiple years of increased revenues from the tax. Development Tax revenue grew 16% in 2011, and 17.5% in 2012. The Tourist Development Tax is a 5% charge on the revenue from rentals of six months or less. Revenue from the tax is used for tourism promotion, maintenance

and renourishment of beach park facilities and beaches, sports stadiums, nature center facilities and promoting new tourist attractions and events. Projects such as the proposed dredging of Big Pass rely on Development Tax revenue. Siesta Key business owners agree; they report that growth has been consistent and predictable since about 2006. Chris Brown, owner of the Beach Club in Siesta Key Village, reports that he has seen a steady 8% to 12% increase in business every year since 2006. “It just keeps getting better and better,� Brown said. “We’ve seen steady, stable growth for a few years now.� Brown attributed the steady growth to the improving economy, but said the rejuvenation of the Village and the efforts of the Siesta Key Chamber of Commerce and the Sarasota Chamber or Commerce have had a positive effect. “The chamber does a great job promoting the island,� Brown said, referring to the Siesta Key Chamber of Commerce. “People are starting to take notice.� Cooper said high-profile events, such as the Siesta Key Crystal Classic, a sandsculpting competition, help introduce people to the area. The Crystal Classic, scheduled for Nov. 15 to Nov. 18, is expected to bring 30,000 to 50,000 visitors to Siesta Key, with more than half traveling from outside Sarasota County. “Any time people from outside come to Siesta Key, it means rooms sold,� Cooper said. Asked if she thinks the current tourism uptick is sustainable in the long run, Haley said, “Our goals are ambitious. We expect an increase next year, but not at this level.� “But we’re looking at reports that October will be particularly good,� Haley added.

unmanned patrol

7

by David Conway | News Editor

Empty city police cars serve as crime deterrent

Since April, the Sarasota Police Department has been stationing unoccupied vehicles around town in an attempt to prevent criminal activity in the area. After slamming on the brakes at the sight of a cop car on the side of the road, Sarasota motorists may notice something peculiar about the patrol vehicles: There is nobody inside. “It’s a little bit of an outside-of-thebox theory,” Sarasota Police Department spokeswoman Genevieve Judge said. “It’s to show there’s a police presence in the city.” Though Judge pointed out that you can’t tell if an officer is inside a vehicle when you’re driving 60 mph, the cars aren’t just intended to trap unsuspecting motorists. The unoccupied vehicles, first used in April, are a general crime-deterrence technique, part of the department’s efforts to emphasize preventing crime rather than fighting it after it’s occurred. By placing the cars in areas where they believe crime is likely to take place — whether it’s to combat prostitution on the North Trail or cut down on speeding in a hotspot — the department can have a presence without necessarily employing an officer,

Judge said. There aren’t any hard figures on whether the tactic is working, but Judge said there’s been positive anecdotal feedback from business owners in areas near unmanned vehicles. She said the business owners have indicated that people in the area took note of the cars. After seeing a police vehicle, Judge said, the decision-making process for wouldbe criminals could be altered, even if an officer is not present in the area. “It just makes people do that double take,” Judge said. “‘Is there a police officer in there? Maybe I need to think twice about what I’m doing.’” Judge said the cars are all functioning, and that they’re periodically moved around the city during the day. The cars double as pool cars, serving as backups when regularly used patrol vehicles are out of service. Overall, she said, there are anywhere from five to 10 unmanned cars stationed at a time at various points throughout Sarasota.

Defund Obamacare

This is sick. No, actually it’s sickening. Obamacare. The federal government is now hiring “navigators” to instruct Americans how to navigate those so-far-fictional “Health Exchanges.” Navigators? Really? No doubt many will be recent college grads who can’t find jobs. And who are they kidding: They’ll be advising Americans on a law and system that no one understands to begin with. And, to top things off, everyone will be monitored by the trustworthy IRS. Really? It gets more absurd: Federal leaders are now saying to qualify for a federal healthinsurance subsidy you will not have to verify your income when you enroll. It will be an honors system. You can picture the Medicare fraudsters in South Florida. They can’t wait. Now there’s even more free money MATT to scam! WALSH In all of their decades as B-to-B health-plan advisers, Joe Part, founder and CEO of Palm Harbor-based Alltrust Insurance, and Rich Pierro, managing partner of Bradenton-based Kitchner & Pierro, have never, ever seen anything like this. “Not even close,” Pierro says. They wouldn’t say it this way, but we will: Never, ever have they seen anything so absolutely, unequivocally awful in their professional lives. “Confusion and frustration,” says Part. “If there’s anything business owners don’t want, it’s confusion and frustration. It’s uncertainty and ever changing — everything a business owner does not want to deal with.” Twenty years ago, when Part visited clients to renew their annual health plans, he met with the heads of companies’ payroll departments. Ten years ago, he met with the HR directors. Seven years ago, he met with the CFOs. Today, at every meeting, he’s sitting with the CFOs and CEOs. Ditto Pierro: “They’re nervous and scared about what’s going to happen.” It’s chaos. And it’s getting worse. Pierro tells of a restaurant client who employs 350 people, 250 full-time equivalents. The owner figured if he didn’t offer health insurance, he would end up paying a $500,000 fine. It would shut him down. When Obamacare first passed, Part says, “We all had the opinion this law wouldn’t have legs. Then we thought the Supreme Court would overturn it. Then it was Obama wouldn’t win re-election. All of a sudden, there’s a lot more focus on what does this all mean? Rates are going up 80% one day and down the next. Employers have hit the pause button again.” What’s galling is the Democrat majority in the U.S. Senate — and especially Obama — have no clue what uncertainty does to the economy. It freezes growth and new initiatives. The chief operating officer of a Gulf Coast group of 30 internal-medicine physicians

told us horror stories of the effects of one regulation after another coming down from Washington. Take Medicare. Every year, physicians sit on edge wondering how much the federal government is going to cut Medicare reimbursements. Imagine, the COO says, trying to plan your business’ annual staffing and budget in that environment. Or going to your bank for equipment financing. Few banks will say yes when they don’t know whether the borrower’s income is going to be cut by 2% or 24%. That is real. Here’s another Obama nightmare for doctors: If a health-exchange enrollee does not pay his health-insurance premium, the insurer still must pay the physician for the first 30 days. But between 30 and 90 days, the physician must try to collect from the patient who hasn’t paid his insurance premium. Here’s the catch: There is no mechanism in the law to allow physicians to check if a patient’s premium has been paid when he shows up at the doctor’s office with an insurance card. You can predict what’s going to happen. Other effects: Obamacare is creating jobs all right, but the wrong kind. The physiciangroup COO told us his firm has one employee dedicated to regulatory compliance. Part says he hired a compliance manager more than a year ago. The job is to educate Alltrust’s employees and customers on the details of Obamacare and produce models to help customers predict their costs. You can see where this disaster is headed. Just as every business must have a trusted accountant and lawyer to “navigate” the federal tax codes, every business will soon face the next inevitability: hiring “compliance” staffers and departments to comply with Obamacare. Health care is now as bad as, if not worse than, banking, an industry that is suffocating from government regulation. These are the wrong kinds of jobs to be created. They’re non-producing; they do not create wealth. They’re jobs that suck productive capital out of the economy to feed the regulatory and legislative leeches in Washington, D.C. The government monster just continues to grow and choke off your freedom. You become further enslaved. None of Obamacare is going to save a nickel. Obama and Democrat lawmakers missed an obvious fix: Give individuals the same tax deduction on health-care costs that businesses get. There isn’t a rational business owner in America who wants to manage his employees’ health insurance. They don’t manage their employees’ car insurance or 401(k)s. Why health insurance? Health insurance should be an individual choice and responsibility, not a government mandate. Confusion and frustration. Part is correct. But he is being diplomatic. It’s far worse than that. It’s beyond comprehension how any lawmaker in the U.S. Senate or House can believe Obamacare is good for America. Defund it. Call or write your congressman or senator. Urge them to kill it. The entire debacle makes you sick to your stomach.

THE CASTAWAY by Jorge Blanco

WHAT THEY SAY, DO ABOUT OBAMACARE

When the U.S. House and Senate reconvene in September, they are expected to pass and adopt a new spending bill to continue funding the federal government. They have many choices. One choice that freshman Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and others are advocating is for Congress not to provide appropriations for Obamacare, or “defund” it. If you think Obamacare is further destruction of America and your freedom, urge your representatives to have the courage to defund it.

Rep. Vern Buchanan

Rep. Buchanan has voted to repeal since it passed in 2010, most recently voting to repeal in July 2012. “This government takeover of the healthcare system does nothing to bring down the cost of health care for Americans … Once fully implemented, this health restructuring law will cost $2.5 trillion. We cannot afford those costs … ” How to contact: http://buchanan. house.gov/; 941-951-6643; 202-2260828.

Sen. Marco Rubio

“I hope this law never goes into effect,” Rubio said Aug. 1 at a press conference with Sens. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. He and they are campaigning to defund Obamacare. “I don’t think it can be fixed … We have to go home and say, ‘We did everything we could. We took every step available to us.’ And that’s why this is such an important issue. That’s why defunding this … is so critical. Because it truly is our last best chance to stop this law from moving forward.” How to contact: http://www.rubio.senate.gov/; 813-977-6450 (Tampa); 202224-3041

Sen. Bill Nelson

Nelson supports Obamacare. At a town hall meeting in 2012, Nelson made no apologies for (his) vote, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Nelson said at the town hall meeting: “Would you like me to repeal the part where you can keep your kid on your family policy until age 26? Would you like me to repeal that part that says that the insurance company can’t cancel you when you’re in the middle of treatment?” How to contact: http://www.billnelson. senate.gov/contact/email.cfm; 813-2257050 (Tampa); 202-228-2183

Cops

by Rodger Skidmore | Guest Columnist

Lowered Siesta Key speed limit could lead to ‘assisted suicides’ According to the law, suicide is illegal. And assisting someone to take their own life is currently illegal, as well.  We have all seen the newspaper articles about Jack Kevorkian and how he, time after time, “helped” others to end their own lives. The fact that they were diseased, dying, in extreme pain and trying to be masters of their own fate was beside the point. For many years our society has decided that suicide is against the law and that decision has not been amended here in Florida and, more to the point, not in Sarasota. Given that it is illegal to take one’s own life and illegal to assist someone in doing so, what is the legal and moral culpability for those who watch someone commit that act and do nothing: to just observe and, when it is over, to walk away.  Here is your chance, right here in Sarasota, on Siesta Key, to watch a number of people attempt to commit suicide and to watch others assist them. Even more interesting, you will have the choice to say, “No, stop,” or to remain silent and then, later, read about their deaths. And worse, too, perhaps read about the deaths or injuries of others who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. On Tuesday from 5 to 7 p.m Aug. 20, at the Siesta Key Chapel, residents of the Sanderling Club gated community are going to request that the speed limit on Midnight Pass Road, between Vista Hermosa Circle and Sanderling Road (.4 miles) be changed from 40 to 35 miles per hour.  How can lowering the speed limit by 5 miles an hour lead to their possible deaths and the potential deaths and in-

3:53 p.m. — 3400 block of South Osprey Ave. Petit Theft. A man walked up to the register at a gas station and asked for gas on his pump. He left a credit card next to the register and pumped $35.75 of gas into his car before leaving. After 20 minutes, the manager ran the credit card to see if the customer had been there before, and the card was denied. The manager used an Internet search engine to search the name on the card, and a picture of the man came up.

THROWING STONES 7:15 p.m. — 5300 block of Ocean Boulevard. Criminal Mischief. A person in a condominium complex reported hearing an “explosion,” and another person saw a man jumping a gate in the complex. Rocks were found in the pool, and two windows were broken. Rocks were found on the balconies where the windows were broken, as well. The person reporting the incident said the suspect either had a really strong arm or was possibly shooting rocks out of a water gun.

Aug. 10 QUIET TIME 2:47 a.m. ­­— 1400 block of Main Street. Dispute/Fight. Law-enforcement personnel told a group of about 20 people involved in a verbal confrontation on Main Street to break it up. Several of the people began loudly arguing in front of the Selby Library a little while later. Two people

said the confrontation started when one group of people started taunting another group for unknown reasons.

Aug. 11 NAKED TRUTH 2:30 p.m. — 1700 block of Ken Thompson Parkway. Suspicion Person. Police received a complaint about a suspicion of naked toddlers running around a park. When he arrived, an officer observed two boys, about 18 months old, not wearing clothes. The mother of the boys said she didn’t think anything was wrong with the situation. The mother’s mother said she would talk her daughter into putting clothes on her children.

4:30 p.m. — 200 block of Canal Road. Battery. A man came into a store and was eventually asked to leave. The store’s owners said the man was a former employee, and that the man had made threats after being fired, although they hadn’t heard from him in weeks. One of the owners walked to the door, opened it and told the man to get out. The man claimed he was shoved through the door, and that he hit his knee against the door and was injured. The owner and a witness claimed the man was not touched. When told there was no evidence of battery, the man said he would go to the hospital for his knee if he had to.

juries of others? First, the speed limit on Midnight Pass Road, between the Stickney Point Bridge and Turtle Beach, a distance of just 2.6 miles, will go from 25 to 40 to 35 to 40 to 35 mph. If anyone thinks people will obey all those changes, they are insane — and in the case of those committing suicide, criminally insane. What is their stated reason for wanting to lower the speed limit? So they can ride their golf carts from the club to where they moor their boats on the bay. Sounds like fun (for them), but what will happen should they be able to do this? Currently, drivers are clocked at between 30 and 50 mph in this area. Reducing the speed limit means drivers will be going anywhere from 30 to 45 mph. This leads to the second reason. Usually, golf carts drive across roads, not along them. A driver on a county road going 30 to 45 mph is not used to rapidly coming upon a golf cart going only 10 to 25 mph in their lane of traffic. The result will be wild breaking, swerving and attempts to go around the golf carts by switching lanes without being fully aware of oncoming traffic — cars to the left and bikes (in the bike lane) on the right. If these predictions are wrong, the only outcome would be Sanderling Club members having lots of fun. If they are right only once, then all those who approve, and all those who do not disapprove (not attending the meeting is a conscious act of silence), will be guilty of either assisting in the tragedy or of standing silently by and then walking away.

A burst of citrus instantly captivates the taste buds because the sea bass is topped with an aioli made from blood oranges, olive oil from Venice Olive Oil Co., Cara Cara oranges and balsamic vinegar. Detroit natives Mike and Donna Pachota opened the restaurant in 1987. It seated 87 people then and now seats 299. The restaurant is on the beach and only a few feet from the fishing pier.

Beach dwellers can sift through the sand for prehistoric shark teeth at the shark-tooth capital of the world. Venice Beach boasts darker sand due to the mix of white sand and fossilized material. Scuba divers can explore the reef a quarter mile from shore, or beachgoers can soak up the sun next to the Gulf of Mexico. The large public beach provides free parking, lifeguards, restrooms, picnic tables and beach wheelchairs.

Sarasota resident Jason Collins started coaching when he was 15 years old after spending six years as a competitive gymnast in South Carolina.

Artistic

EXCELLENCE

Former competitive gymnast Jason Collins returned to the gym last year and was named the Sarasota Surge’s new program director in December after spending 15 years as a professional opera singer. SARASOTA —  Jason Collins always knew he could fly. But, the then 9-year-old just hadn’t quite mastered his newfound set of wings. That didn’t stop the former soccer goalkeeper from testing his limits every chance he got.

Collins would sit in the box and wait for the ball to cross the other side of the field. As soon as that happened it was game on. Collins would pull himself up onto the top bar of the goal and backflip off. He would repeat the

process again and again with the same result until the ball made it’s way back down the field. “I always landed on my face,” Collins says with a laugh. After her son attempted one too many backflips, Collins’ mother enrolled him in gymnastics much

to his delight. “I always wanted to be in it,” Collins says. Now, 30 years later, Collins is teaching backflips to Sarasota’s new wave of young gymnasts — albeit in a safer setting. Last week, Collins celebrated his one-year anniversary coaching the Sarasota Surge YMCA gymnastics team. Collins returned to the gym after 15 years as a professional opera singer. In December, Collins was named the Surge’s new program director. Since then, Collins has hired a pair of former Olympians and also started a boys program. Most recently, Collins took 39 gymnasts to the 2013 YMCA National Gymnastics Championships. Of those 39 gymnasts, 38 placed in the top 10, with 11 gymnasts capturing individual allaround titles. “It was an embarrassment of riches,” Collins says. “Seeing them do well or learn a new skill is as good as, if not better than, any standing ovation I’ve received.” A native of South Carolina, Collins began taking gymnastics when he was 9 years old; within six months he was training at a competitive level — traveling 90 minutes away three times a week to compete. “It was fun,” says Collins, who thrived on the high bar and floor exercise. “It was an adrenaline rush. Although I didn’t know what an adrenaline rush was at that age.” Collins competed until he was 15 years old. At that point, he felt he had achieved all gymnastics had to offer and was ready to take the next step in his career. His coach at the time gave him a job as an instructor, and Collins quickly discovered he had a passion for helping other gymnasts achieve their goals.

“I had really influential coaches who taught me good technique, how to stay safe and have fun,” Collins says. “They were just good people who I looked up to, and I wanted to be like them.” Collins coached through his sophomore year at the University of South Carolina before his career took a somewhat unexpected turn. A former voice major and Gamecocks cheerleader, Collins received a call that the university was in need of a singer. Collins obliged and shortly thereafter he was approached about auditioning for The Juilliard School. After submitting a tape and participating in a weeklong series of auditions, Collins received a fouryear scholarship. After graduating from Juilliard with bachelor’s degree in music, Collins was one of two people accepted to the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music, in Philadelphia, where he received his master’s degree in opera. Upon graduation, Collins traveled throughout the world performing at the Kennedy Center, the San Francisco Opera, the Seattle Opera and throughout Italy, among other locations. But, after nine months out of the year on the road, Collins decided to take a break from the stage and return to his first passion. Now, Collins, who still flips about the gym on occasion, is focused on building the Surge program and bringing national recognition to it. Collins’ competitive gymnasts train a minimum of 16 hours a week, but there are some who will spend 25 to 30 hours a week in the gym. “We’re building champions inside and out,” Collins says. “The serious ones —  I’m not going to deny them training. I’ll sacrifice a little sleep.”

he adage “eat more vegetables” is difficult when serving sizes for the average adult amount to eating four to five cups of leafy greens daily. Tommy Klauber, owner of Polo Grill and Pattigeorge’s Fine Costal Cuisine, puts it best: “That’s a lot of chewing!” There’s a gourmet solution cropping up around the country, which celebrities such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Gwyneth Paltrow are touting. Klauber discovered it when he was training for his first triathlon — juicing. In 2010, Klauber decided to get in shape after things such as raising kids and owning businesses got in the way of personal health. He was feeling the effects of living unhealthily, so he joined a fitness studio, started eating right and began training for triathlons. Klauber started working with holistic nutritionist Stacy Koski and got into making and drinking juices. He did a four-day cleanse, a juice fast, leading up to a triathlon. The juice he drank isn’t the kind chock-full of sugar or made from concentrate, it’s made up of a combination of raw fruits and vegetables such as carrots, beets,

// FOOD&COOKING ginger, red peppers and apple. There’s no sugar added to it, but it’s just as sweet as something loaded with sugar. “You don’t even know you’re drinking spinach,” Klauber says. Klauber thinks it’s not long before more people jump on the trend. For now, Polo Grill (10670 Boardwalk Loop, Lakewood Ranch) is one of the only finedining establishments in Sarasota to offer freshly squeezed organic juice (Klauber’s brother, Michael, also offers a pressed juice daily on Michael’s On East’s menu). Polo Grill offers organic juice daily on its Polo Fit menu, which Koski helped him develop. The menu features organic, nutrientdense foods presented in an eyeappealing and appetizing way — and it offers some of the most inexpensive juice of this kind in Sarasota at just $6 a glass. Lynn Morris, owner SaraFresh Juice, has juices that start at $6, too. She was the first in town to start distributing cold-pressed, raw juice made from local produce. Places such as Whole Foods offer national brands similar to Morris’ such as, Suja and Blueprint, for around $10 each. This begs the question: Why is this kind of juice so expensive? Answer: Because they’re packed

with pounds of produce in one little bottle. Morris explains these details from the small headquarters of SaraFresh Juice, which is tucked inside the retail warehouse for Detwiler Market. She samples a beautiful, earthy red juice made from beet, carrot, fennel, apple, lemon and ginger to make sure it’s up to her taste standards. She produces around 600 bottles a week to fill orders and to sell at the Sarasota Farmers Market. She’s just created a new variety made from Thai young coconut, spinach, banana, raw sprouted almonds, spirulina (freshwater algae), and, although it looks too green and healthy to taste good, it is divine. Morris, like Klauber, also grew to love juicing after trying a cleanse. She found adding juice to her diet was an efficient way to pack a lot of nutrients into her diet, and she decided to start making the juices herself. Her main goal for drinking juice (and for the people she sells it to) is that everyone gets in more good than bad. “We’re all going to have Chickfil-A every once in a while,” she says with a laugh. It’s why she offers both an organic and non-organic line of juices; so that those interested in

Carrot juice • 6 carrots • 2 apples • 1/4 bulb of fennel • lemon juice and ginger to taste This serves two, and you can make it with organic or non-organic produce. *Courtesy of Lynn Morris

juicing, who might not be willing to spend the extra money for organic, can have their cake and drink it, too, so to speak. She can personally attest to the benefits and says the juice keeps her energized — it even got rid of the muffin top she once had. Plus, it makes her feel better. Her boyfriend, Steve Seidensticker (owner of Libby’s and Louies Modern), lost 25 pounds juicing. You can find her products year-round at the SaraFresh Juice booth at the Sarasota Farmers Market, at Definition Fit, 1489 Fifth St., and at Detwiler Market, 6000 Palmer Blvd. You can also find pressed juice at Get Fit Fuel, located at 2063 Siesta Drive, which opened in March. It’s what owner Greg Gentile refers to as a healthy fastfood restaurant with portioned, balanced meals that offers delivery. Gentile first started juicing 10 years ago because he could drink all of his servings on the go. He packed as many vegetables into a blender as he could without paying attention to the flavor. His juice was brown, but at least he was getting all the nutrients. “This is like eating at least four salads minimum,” he says. “You wouldn’t imagine the amount of produce it takes for one juice.” When he opened Get Fit Fuel, he started doing the research to offer the same convenience he found in drinking juice, but with great flavor so it appealed to customers. He brought on an expert juicer three months into opening and sold her organic juices in-house. They prepped 120 juices the first day (no brown ones offered) and sold out. He sold more than 100 juices daily in the

Masticating blender (cold-pressed) — the kind of juice Lynn Morris makes. This process uses pressure to squeeze nutrient-rich, raw juice leaving the fiber and shell of the vegetables and fruits behind. It’s cold-pressed, because when heat is used in the process, it cuts down on the percentage of healthy enzymes and nutrients. This is the most expensive method. Centrifugal blender — This is Tommy Klauber’s favorite method for blending hard vegetables such as beets, carrots and peppers. Fruit and vegetables can be pushed through a rapidly spinning chamber, which is funneled over a mesh filter. The medium-priced method. Blender and strainer — Tommy Klauber recommends using this if you are a beginner and don’t want to put a lot of money into juicing. It doesn’t fully separate the liquid from the pulp, but you can blend everything up, and strain the juice to leave behind the fiber segments. You could get the same effect using a citrus juicer and a blender for the citrus products. This is the most inexpensive method. first week. “If I had known what kind of demand I would have had, I would have carried them from the beginning,” he says. He’s been carrying them for two months, and he, himself, has been drinking up to five daily. Since drinking more fresh juice, he has noticed changes in his complexion; he’s sleeping better; and he has lost 15 pounds. He’s also taken the past two

months to learn the juicing art form and, with his chef, has been developing Get Fit Fuel’s own recipes. He has ordered two of what’s considered the Cadillac of juicemakers —  the Angel —  that can churn out around 50 gallons of juice in an hour. Get Fit Fuel started carrying Gentile’s new original recipes Monday, Aug. 12. “If I could drink all of my food for the rest of my life, I would,” he says.

// Arts&Entertainment: Against the grain

by Mallory Gnaegy | A&E Editor

Building a legacy Shawn O’Malley’s grandfather taught him the art of woodworking from salvaged material. Now, O’Malley is the teacher.

Mallory Gnaegy

“Everybody brings different things to the table,” Shawn O’Malley says of his co-op woodshop. “This camaraderie is what I envisioned.”

SIDAF INC.

Craftsman Shawn O’Malley has sawdust in his blood. His grandfather Frank Ross, or “Pop” as he was known, had also made furniture. In those days, you didn’t buy a table — you made it. Ross had once made a bench from pine resurrected from a barn in a valley nearby where Ross lived in Kentucky. The barn was standing during the Civil War and, within a 48-hour period, both Union and Confederate soldiers spent the night in the barn. The bench currently resides in O’Malley’s kitchen; his family sits on it nightly for dinner. Ross not only passed furniture and woodworking adages, such as “measure twice, cut once,” down to O’Malley, but he passed down the love of woodworking. When O’Malley had children —  Liam is now 10 and Jack is 13 —  he and Ross used to work in Ross’ woodshop, a building adjacent to Ross’ Sarasota home, making wooden toys for O’Malley’s children. They were ones Ross would have played with as a child. After Ross died nine years ago, O’Malley retreated to the woodshop and began building farm tables out of salvaged wood — a way to connect to his heritage. O’Malley was the manager of Home Depot at the time. People would come in and say, “I want

// Arts&Entertainment Five things that inspire Shawn O’Malley: 1. My wife — She is my rock.

She is my support. She is my inspiration and the reason I do everything.

2. My kids — For the exact

same reasons as my wife.

3. The story behind something

— Whatever that story might be. I love it when something has got more of a story than just what it is. It has a past

What’s in a name:

and history … it has a little more to it. 4. Cooperativeness — It’s (the

to build a table.” O’Malley would ask how they planned to attach the legs, and then cringe at their haphazard plans. O’Malley wanted to take them under his wing and show them the proper way — the way Ross would have done it. O’Malley always envisioned a place he could do this —  something with more space where he could create a cooperative environment and turn commoners into craftsmen. This desire for a co-op grew when O’Malley became store manager for Sarasota Architectural Salvage in 2006. In spring 2012, a 5,000-squarefoot warehouse became available on Central Avenue a few doors down from Sarasota Architectural Salvage. The space was perfect — it is a short distance to transport wood or other salvaged supplies, such as beams from the old John Ringling Hotel, from SAS to the woodworking space. O’Malley gets first dibs on what comes into the store. The new space is also large enough that his fellow artist-type

co-workers from Sarasota Architectural Salvage can explore their own creativity. It’s the type of place that draws in outsiders from all walks of life — his shop has grown to house about 12 fellow craftsmen. “There’s no shop class offered in high school anymore,” O’Malley says, “but people crave it and don’t have the means to do it.” O’Malley invites those with “sawdust in their blood,” as he says, to work in his shop. He lends his tools and space for free and helps teach them the art. Nothing excites O’Malley more than artistic people who have a project in mind but don’t know how to build it. Though he doesn’t ask for anything in return, he has found that they are glad to give something back to him. One craftsman specializes in home brewing and stocks a row of refrigerators at the front of the shop with the beer he makes. Another is a tattoo artist who offers his services to the craftsmen. Another is a

I feel like I put kids out into the world and I’m like this grandfather looking back ... ... Shawn O’Malley says about all the tables he has built. Pictured are a few of the pieces he’s made.

fisherman who often hosts cookouts at the workshop. O’Malley says it’s exactly the type of camaraderie he wanted when he envisioned what this place could be. ���You get what you put in,” O’Malley says. “That’s what this

woodshop has taught me tenfold.” And, in keeping with their great-grandfather’s legacy, O’Malley’s two sons have also tapped into the art form. Jack helps deliver the custom tables

once they’re finished, and Liam has started his own company painting hand-carved fish his father makes from salvaged wood. “It’s such a shame Pop didn’t get to see what I’m doing in the workshop,” O’Malley says.

Mandy Jane and Shawn O’Malley met in the fourth grade at Pine View Elementary, where they were both students. They were placed in the same group on a trip to Epcot, and they were friends until they started dating in their junior year of high school. In high school, O’Malley used to sign notes he wrote his sweetheart with a heart with wings. So, years later, when they were brainstorming what to call his early painting and craftsmanship, his wife said, “Heart’s Art” — not only as homage to his signature, but because everything he made came from his heart. He says the theme has translated itself a few times and tends to be recurring. Most recently, he has been working with heart pine.

CHILDREN’S CAMP

Tiny ballerinas pranced around in tutus Aug. 4 to Aug. 9, in preparation for their “Sleeping Beauty” performance in front of their families. Six campers, ages 3 to 6, met from noon to 3 p.m. each day and made an activity book that included ballet terminology and the story of “Sleeping Beauty.” They learned basic ballet steps and practiced their dance for an hour each day.

ost people are lucky to have one or two grandmothers in their lives. Jennifer Riesenberger, the new senior center manager for Sarasota Senior Friendship Centers, says she can count 50 or 60 in Sarasota alone. During her first four years of working for the SFC, which partners with the Robert L. Taylor Community Center in North Sarasota, Riesenberger formed close, lasting relationships with the seniors at the center — a group of mostly women who gather every day to play cards and socialize. Together, they’ve gone to the circus, the museum and various performing-arts productions, and they’ve learned a lot from one another. “They’re like an extended family to me now,” she says. “They’re very genuine and honest, and they’ve taught me a lot about family devotion, faith and friendship and the joy that can be found in fellowship: socializing, eating or just sharing each other’s company.” Riesenberger first began working for Senior Friendship Centers in 2008. The youngest of her three children had started kindergarten, and she was looking for work that could utilize her degrees in arts education and curriculum instruction, as well as the experience she’d gained immediately after graduation as an AmeriCorps volunteer. She contacted AmeriCorps, and she worked for two years as a volunteer for SFC in North Sarasota until they hired her as coordinator. Senior Friendship Centers is a nonprofit network of centers that provides volunteer services in the areas of healthy aging, support and volunteerism to people ages 50 and older. For Riesenberger, the job offered her a chance to tap into her passions for creativity and helping others. “It means an opportunity to express my creativity,” she says. “It’s an opportunity to use that to influence others and promote healthy aging and introduce more youthful programming.” In her new role as senior center manager, Riesenberger oversees day-to-day operations at the Brother William Geenen location, including introducing new programming. In her first two months, she’s started to introduce new programs in the areas of exercise, technology and even dating. Although she knows some people might be apprehensive about change, she says she’ll rely on the valuable experience she gained in North Sarasota. “At first, it was a challenge to get the seniors to open up and become comfortable with me,” she says. “It took awhile to get them to trust me fully enough to try new ideas and programming and outings that might be outside their comfort level.” As much as Riesenberger encourages seniors to try new things and step outside of their comfort zones, she says that with their age and experience, the teaching goes both ways. “A lot of them are great-grandparents,” she says. “They have great parenting experience and advice. I share my family experiences with them, and they share their experience with me. They’ve definitely taught me more than I’ve taught them.” YourObserver.com // View a video of Riesenberger at work.

Rotary Club members help stuff backpacks An assembly line of backpack stuffers filled approximately 1,000 backpacks with pens, pencils, notebooks and markers Tuesday, at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. The “stuffers” were members of the Rotary Club of Sarasota Bay, who worked alongside representatives from the schools that will be receiving the backpacks. Six schools in the Sarasota area will each receive 150 backpacks, and 60 will go to the Salvation Army Family Center. The backpacks and supplies are paid for through the Rotary’s Backpack Program, which runs throughout the year. “Since we’ve started this program, we’ve probably given about 7,000 to 8,000 backpacks to students who need them,” says Bill Folz, Rotary Club of Sarasota Bay president-elect and chairman of the backpack program. “Rotary is always looking for ways to help our community, and doing so is such a rewarding experience.” The backpacks will be taken to the schools this week.
