HERITAGE HARBOUR — Supervisors on the Heritage Harbour South Community Development District received little public comment as they signed off on the district’s 2013-2014 fiscal year budget — the first developed by a completely resident-run CDD board. The new $413,000 ope rat ing-a nd-ma in tenance budget keeps assessments the same as last year for Heritage Harbour residents in Stoneybrook and Lighthouse Cove. Including debt-service assessments, residents will pay between $489.25 and $1,64.54 annually, depending on the size of their respective lot. The Stoneybrook Golf Club will be assessed $35,363.90. District Manager Greg Cox said the most dramatic savings in the budget will stem from changes in district management, because

CDD raises concerns over asset management

Heritage Harbour South Community Development District supervisors continue to discuss whether to resume control over district assets the Stoneybrook Homeowners Association manages. Now, however, they are focusing on defining expectations. At the board’s Aug. 15 meeting, district attorney Andy Cohen raised concerns about Stoneybrook’s contract with security provider Envera, which remotely controls access through the community’s gates, as well as the fact the HOA is not following an agreement with the

LAKEWOOD RANCH — Trying to break through the muddled fate of the gate at Balmoral Woods and Lakewood Ranch boulevards, Bob Burstein made an emphatic promise. “The gate will not close Jan. 1, or tomorrow or in the near future,” said Burstein, chairman of Lakewood Ranch Community Development District 6. “We will go through fiscal year 2014 as we are.” At the first joint workshop between Lakewood Ranch CDDs 2, 5 and 6 Aug. 13, Burstein promised to delay a decision of the Balmoral gate’s fate until after fiscal year 2014. However, supervisors made preparatory moves to ensure a decision will be collaborative — and that joint workshops will become habitual. Lakewood Ranch Town Hall staff, who oversees the business of the CDDS, now has advertised for CDDs 2, 5 and 6 to have joint workshops every month. Their next meeting will be at 2:30 p.m. Sept. 17. “There is a consensus that we will make decisions as a unit,” Burstein said. “We’re one group with our own responsibilities. There is no friction between boards.” Currently, the Balmoral gate has transponder-only access from 10:30 p.m. until 6:30 a.m., and a security company mans it during the day. Supervisors want to find a more efficient way to run the gate. Last month, CDD 6 supervisors rejected a joint proposal from CDDs 2 and 5 to add a third shift for security services and to share

equally in costs for all gates accessing the Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club. The chairs of the three districts already have held four meetings, Burstein said. “Communication among us is fundamental,” said Alan Silverglat, a CDD 5 supervisor. “People sometimes feel decisions are made in a vacuum of comments and would welcome the opportunity to bring concerns to you (CDD 6).” As the CDDs vowed to come together, an emotional audience still had doubts. One woman tried to settle a stream of accusatory comments. “Why is there all this emotion and animosity?” she said. “Let’s see how we can make this one Lakewood Ranch.” From the start, Burstein has said CDD 6, which has the final say on the Balmoral gate because it is within CDD 6’s boundaries, will make a decision that benefits everybody. His district decided to delay a decision until the next budget cycle because supervisors want to ensure they make good on Burstein’s word. In another push for collaboration, unrelated to the discussion about the Balmoral gate, CDD 6 agreed to assign a liaison to the  Country Club/Edgewater Village Association’s Safety Committee. Supervisor Dick Moran already represents CDD 2 on the committee, while Marty Cohn, of CDD 5, also attends meeting. Supervisor Doug Ferry will represent CDD 6.

Bayside Community Church staff and members prayed the gifts will make it to Zimbabwe as the boxes take a three-month journey across land and ocean.

Bayside Community Church packs gifts for Zimbabwe This month, church staff and members packed boxes with gifts to be delivered to two schools in Zimbabwe, where items will arrive in December. EAST COUNTY — For students at two elementary schools in Zimbabwe, Christmas is already on its way — $50,000 worth of toys and supplies packed into boxes to be delivered by truck, then by ship and, again, by truck. Members of Bayside Community Church stuffed a truck, locked its swinging doors and leaned a hand against it, reciting an unrehearsed prayer, Aug. 13, as they readied those Christmas gifts for departure. With no bow to add, a church employee pulled the doors back open, whipped out cans of green and red spray paint and wrote, “To Zimbabwe with love,” onto a piece of cardboard. Bayside calls this effort “Christmas in July.” The first-time event signals the church’s effort to create a presence in Zimbabwe, where Bayside officials are working to start a church campus. Nearly 70 church staff and members filled the truck with containers, packed into boxes, with goods for elementary school students at two schools — Tategulu Primary School and Mkhithika Primary School — in Cowdray Park, Zimbabwe, an impoverished suburb of Bulawayo, the secondlargest city in the country. “To see the church be so generous is amazing,” said Gregg Ellery, executive pastor. “It’s easy for us to make sure kids miles away have a spectacular Christmas. This is why we do what we do — love on people.” Preparations began in July, when church staff members gave the containers to church members with the direction to fill each with $15 worth of gifts — jump ropes, dolls and other items. From here, the goods will be trucked to Miami and then to Charleston, S.C. From there, the boxes will float by ship to Durban, South Africa, before they are

trucked to Bulawayo and, then, to the schools. The transportation process is so involved that the goods will not arrive until Christmastime. The Rev. Randy Bezet and others will fly to the schools the second week in December to throw a Christmas party for the students, who will receive the gifts at that time. The “Christmas in July” event occurred at each of Bayside’s three campuses. Bayside’s outreach to Zimbabwe began in April when Children’s Cup, a humanitarian and spiritual-aid organization based in Louisiana, invited church officials to Cowdray Park. Children’s Cup, which works with churches to provide food and water, medical care, education and discipleship to impoverished places in Africa, has been working with Bayside for more than 10 years. “My wife and I went with Randy (Bezet) and his wife to tour the neighborhood and schools,” Ellery said. “We prayed over potential land (for a potential campus) and prayed over the schools. This was the beginning.” In October, Bayside began a sponsorship program with Children’s Cup and One Child Matters, an organization that operates faith-based, child-sponsorship programs. One Child Matters helped Bayside pick 500 children for church members to sponsor. Each month, participating Bayside churchgoers each donate $34 toward each child they sponsor for the program. In May, Bezet and Don

Champion, a church volunteer with ties to Africa, visited Cowdray Park again. In 1999, Champion, a retired transportation internal consultant with ExxonMobil (then called Mobil) helped roll out a program that set requirements that made it safer to deliver gasoline to Zimbabwe, Malawi, Cameroon and Nicaragua. With Bezet, Champion used his ties and knowledge to curry favor with the Bulawayo government, a requirement to earn trust in the country. “You have to understand the people and understand the cultural differences,” Champion said. “You have to know how to apply the DNA of Bayside to a place that needs it but has never experienced it.” On the day of the box-packing, Ellery’s wife, Valerie, a teacher, was at the schools in Zimbabwe, working with the teachers and “praying for more favor.” Ellery said that Bayside is “real close” to getting the favor it needs to open a campus near the two elementary schools — hopefully, in eight months to a year. For now, Bayside is content preparing for Christmas — in August. “God we ask that you protect this, as it floats across the ocean, as it gets trucked across the ground and as it arrives in Cowdray Park in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, three months from now,” Ellery recited in prayer, blessing the truck that would deliver Christmas gifts to the children there.

LAKEWOOD RANCH — Lakewood Ranch residents will see increases in their community development district assessments for the 2013-2014 fiscal year, primarily due to costs associated with construction of Town Hall’s new maintenance facility and to increases in costs for irrigation water. Braden River Utilities, Lakewood Ranch’s irrigation provider, increased its rate for the second year in a row. Lakewood Ranch Community Development District 6 residents will see the largest increase in assessments, with homeowners paying 26.9% more than in fiscal year 2012-13.

 Town Hall Chief Financial Officer Steve Zielinski’s $862,070 operating budget for CDD 6 uses no reserves. He warned of the district’s potential inability to obtain future financing unless it saves more money.
 
Zielinski projects CDD 6 to have $120,900 in reserves by Sept. 30, compared to $829,200 for CDD 1.
As of Oct. 1 2012, going into the current fiscal year, the district had only $37,000 in reserves. “We should really be at $160,000 in reserves,” he said. “Setting aside 15% of your operating budget for reserves is really the minimum bar to be fiscally prudent and responsive.” District 6 also will pay an extra $47,500 for improvements to roads. The district’s limited reserves mean CDD 6 must improve assets in phases. That fact will not limit CDD 6 from updating technology at its gatehouse, an added $27,000 expense that includes a design study. The improvements are required to update transponder readers that are 12 years old, said Ryan Heise, director of operations, and have nothing to do with changes to the operations of the much-discussed gate at Balmoral Woods and Lakewood Ranch boulevards. “No one wanted to increase the budget like we did,” said Richard Williams, CDD 6 vice chairman. “To meet standards and complete our transition (to a resident-controlled board), this is what we had to do.” In CDD 5, supervisors adopted a $2.3 million budget that includes a 7.4% increase in assessments. It will restore an anticipated $152,200 budget shortfall for fiscal year 2013, after the district dipped into reserves to fund storm drain repairs ($242,000) and litigation costs ($235,000). Without those costs in 2014, overall expenses will decrease by $206,600. 
CDD 4 adopted a $1.8 million operating budget, including a 7.8% increase in assessments. Supervisors are preparing for repairs to mitigate beach erosion along the Braden River to drain its projected $573,100

IN OTHER BUSINESS:

• Operations Director Ryan Heise introduced Town Hall’s new landscape manager, Eddie Tanguay. • Town Hall will host a newresident orientation at 4 p.m. Sept. 10.

CDD 1:

• The board selected Robert Swiatek, the president of the Summerfield/Riverwalk Village Association, to replace the retiring Jean Stewart as CDD 1’s newest board member. Chairwoman June Stroup dissented in the 3-1 vote, as she expressed worry about potential conflicts of interest with Swiatek’s homeowners-association commitment. There is no rule against serving on a CDD and HOA. “I don’t see any conflict of interest,” Supervisor Alan Roth said. “He understands how governance in Lakewood Ranch works, and his law-enforcement experience can be useful here.” Swiatek will report to the board in September and keep his position for the remainder of Stewart’s term, through November 2014. • The board gave staff the go-ahead to install six light poles at the Summerfield Park basketball courts. Estimated costs are $17,000.

CDD 2 & 5:

• CDD 2 and 5 supervisors revised the language of their palm tree-removal policy. Both districts will remove and stump grind any street palm tree that is dead. The districts will not replace the palm trees.

CDD 4:

• The CDD 4 board picked Spectrum Underground Inc. to repair erosion near the Braden River, along a trail behind Greenbrook Adventure Park.

IDA:

• The board gave Eva Rey, Town Hall executive director, approval to enforce parking rules at Town Hall. The East Manatee Fire Department officals told Rey that, during Music on Main, people are parking on Town Hall’s property in places that prevent emergency access to the building. Rey said Town Hall will put up two signs, at both entrances to Town Hall, warning that illegal violators will be towed.

in reserves. CDD 2 adopted a $2.8 million operating budget, with a 9.6% assessment increase. The district is facing a 27.9% increase in landscaping expenses because of the economic rebound. CDD 1 adopted a $1.8 million budget, after a 4.9% increase in assessments. The 2013-14 fiscal year budgets take effect Oct. 1. Contact Josh Siegel at jsiegel@ yourobserver.com.

New Out-of-Door dean finds a home Adam Seldis hopes to impart a global message to students at The Out-of-Door Academy. place he earned admission to on a music scholarship, a teenage Seldis taught 8- and 9-year-olds how to play the violin. “I knew then teaching was where I wanted to go, but I knew I didn’t want to teach music,” Seldis said. After earning his bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Northumbria, in England, Seldis took a year off and moved to New Zealand, where he was a teacher aide to children ages 8 to 13 — a demographic for which he had little patience. The experience made Seldis want to change careers. In his mid-20s, he decided to find a more lucrative career. From 1999 to 2003, he served as a senior insolvency administrator for Smith & Williamson Chartered Accountants, in London. He consulted businessmen who knew more than he did about how they could improve. “It was absurd,” Seldis. “Here I was straight out of college trying to tell people what to do.” That’s when he decided to become a teacher. “The same day I passed a major accounting test, I said to myself, ‘What are you doing with your life?’” Seldis said. “‘Stop being an idiot. You’re a teacher.’” It took one year for Seldis to earn a teaching certificate. The next year, in 2005, Seldis started teaching at Wellington

Josh Siegel

Adam Seldis comes to Out-of-Door Academy from Yokohama, Japan, where he taught at the world’s second-oldest international school. College, a school for high school students. There, he also met his wife, Maggie. Newly married in 2010, Seldis wanted to explore the world. He moved to Japan to head the social-sciences department and teach at the Yokohama International School. There, Seldis taught high school students mostly from western backgrounds. He also got a first-hand look at the exam-centric educational system that defines Asian culture. He learned, as ODA promotes, that finding success in a fastchanging world requires skills gained outside the classroom. Seldis took that concept and created the Global Citizen Diplo-

ma program. It features a system of categories that incorporate activities and achievements that define a global citizen. If a student is deemed proficient in all 15 categories, which is rare, they earn a Global Citizen diploma with distinction. One student traveled to Tohoku, Japan, in 2011, after an earthquake and tsunami hit the country. She spoke to people who had lost their homes and created a cookbook of their family recipes; she dedicated the proceeds to recovery efforts. Her success, shaped by Seldis’ program, tells an important message he hopes ODA students take to heart. “You are incredibly privileged to go to school at ODA, and with

LAKEWOOD RANCH — Adam Seldis’ possessions are on a ship somewhere in the Panama Canal. Seldis’ career has taken him everywhere, from Yokohama, Japan, to Wellington College, in the United Kingdom. But his heart, which has always pumped for teaching but once strayed to the more lucrative accounting field, is here, at The Out-of-Door Academy’s Upper School in Lakewood Ranch, where Seldis, 36, began his new job Aug. 1. Although he has spent his life teaching everywhere and everything — from music to economics — Seldis, ODA’s new assistant head of Upper School, finally has a home. “I am struck not only by the journey this school has been on so far, but also the fact that it is entering a very interesting chapter in its life,” he said. “It’s gotten over the growing pains, and it’s ready for the rest of a fantastic journey.” It’s a journey familiar to Seldis, who grew up outside Cambridge, England. Born into a sort-of musical family — both of his brothers are or were professional musicians, although his parents have no musical talent — Seldis turned a gift of song into mentoring. During a summer home from boarding school, a selective

that comes an obligation to help others,” Seldis said. “Don’t be insular. There’s a big world over there. It’s a global world, and you need to know how to work with these people.” Seldis proved his adaptability when, seeking a more permanent place to live after he and his wife decided they wanted to start a family, he learned about ODA at a job fair in Philadelphia. There, Seldis shined in the speed-dating-interview format and proceeded to Skype chats, which he carried out from Japan. Now, Seldis will take on a more administrative role — one with which he had to become comfortable. “It’s still my big love to stand in front of a class and teach economics,” Seldis said. “No one becomes a teacher to sit at a desk. Suddenly my job is 90% administration and 10% teaching. But, in doing that, I can impact teaching and learning in a broader sense.” At ODA, Seldis will help develop the academic program and administer discipline. He will assume some of the day-to-day responsibilities of Noel Dougherty, head of Upper School. He will also teach one class, history. His wife just joined him in the new home they purchased in Lakewood Ranch. Their first child is due in October. “I feel at home,” Seldis said. “I’ve found that educators here will walk over burning oil if it makes them better at teaching and learning. And I will do the best job I can so that I am walking there with them.” Contact Josh Siegel at jsiegel@ yourobserver.com.

Scott toured the site, before joining in a press conference, during which he noted the state lost 832,000 jobs in the four years leading up to his election. “That made no sense,” Scott said. “We should be the absolute tourist destination in the world, but it won’t happen unless we invest and make things like this (park) happen.” The state has committed $10 million, in total, to the park and efforts to bring the International Federation of Rowing Associations’ 2017 World Rowing Championships there. The site has been recommended for hosting the regatta, with formal approval expected in September. Benderson Development, along with Sarasota and Manatee counties, led efforts to lengthen the lake at Nathan Benderson Park to accommodate a 2,000-meter rowing course and for the creation of the regatta venue itself. During the ceremony, Scott honored Randy Benderson, president of Benderson Development, and his family, with the Governor’s Business Ambassador Award, which recognizes individuals and companies for significant contributions to the Florida economy. “It’s a great honor for our family and

Rick Scott. our company,” Benderson said of receiving the award. “Our company spends a lot of time trying to bring businesses to our community, and it’s wonderful to be recognized for it.” Benderson Development is responsible for many of the shopping destinations along University Parkway between Interstate 75 and just west of Honore Avenue, among others. It also has partnered with Taubman Centers to construct the Mall at University Town Center, just north of Nathan Benderson Park. The mall is slated to open in October 2014.

IMPROVEMENTS: • Expansion of the Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club Athletic Center by 6,900 square feet. Pickleball courts also to be added. • Addition of a double-ended driving range and practice area at the Royal Lakes Golf Course. • Construction of a new clubhouse at the Royal Lakes Golf Course. Clubhouse will include a golf shop and casual dining area, as well as a paved parking lot.

ASSETS / PAGE 1 CDD on how it contracts with vendors. “I don’t object to having the HOA manage (the asset),” Cohen said. “My issue here is the contract; some of the provisions are pretty burdensome.” Supervisors directed Cohen and District Manager Greg Cox to meet with Tony Burdett, a representative of Heritage Harbour’s developer, Lennar, to discuss the issues.

BUDGET / PAGE 1 property-management company Rizzetta & Co., for which Cox works, has assumed management of all the district’s assets. Morris-Riley Development Management previously oversaw the district’s stormwater system. “It’s going to end up with an overall savings,” Cox said. However, legal costs associated with a lawsuit between the CCD and the Stoneybrook Golf Club and Lighthouse Cove Homeowners Association exceeded project-

First on the list of projects is the addition of a doubled-ended driving range and practice area at Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club’s Royal Lakes Golf Course; it will be similar to the range at the club’s existing facility. Those improvements will be followed by the construction of a permanent 10,000- to 12,000-squarefoot clubhouse with a golf shop and bar and grill, as well as a paved parking lot. Currently, a doublewide trailer, with a gravel parking lot, serves as a golf shop and clubhouse for the course. SMR President and CEO Rex Jensen envisions a two-story building that overlooks the greenway and maximizes interaction with the outdoors through the use of patio space and architectural elements. “Its primary focus will be food and beverage,” Jensen said of the facility, noting a survey of members dictated a more “casual” option than SMR originally had planned for the site. SMR also is planning to expand its 11,000-square-foot athletic center by about 6,900 square feet to give the facility more space, in general, and for fitness classes. “We want to expand that building as much as we can on the existing

ed budget numbers for the item by more than $40,000 in fiscal year 2012-13. As of July 31, the district was about $74,000 over budget for fiscal year 2012-13 because of legal fees associated with the lawsuit concerning assessments for stormwater maintenance, Cox said. However, Cox said he did not expect the district to have to dip into its emergency fund to cover the costs. Instead, budget savings found throughout the year would offset legal fee overages. “I think you’ve taken some large expenses and you’ve contained them somewhat,” Cox said. “It’s under control, but it hurt.” Supervisors moved $134,580 from two line items under the stormwater-control category and one miscellaneous line item into the miscellaneous contingency category. Supervisor Michelle Patterson said the dollars moved did not have a specific purpose attached to them and supervisors moved them to help provide better accuracy in budgeting in future years.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR + Bridge comparisons are ‘apples to oranges’

Dear Editor. In response to the article about the Fort Hamer Bridge in the Aug. 15 edition of the East County Observer, let me comment on the statement concerning cost. You say, as does Mr. Peate, that the cost of the Fort Hamer Bridge will be $30.2 million, and the Rye Road alternative would be $80.8 million. That is like comparing apples to watermelons. The Fort Hamer Bridge will be a two-lane bridge with no improvements to either the north or south side two-lane roads approaching the bridge. The Rye Bridge would be a fourlane bridge, two lanes of which

would be new, with widening the roadways from State Road 64 to Golf Course Road to four lanes. Why do we need to make the Rye Road Bridge four lanes when millions were recently spent to build a new bridge at the same site? The Fort Hamer Bridge will be 2,570 feet long, and the Rye Bridge is a couple of hundred feet long. Hardly the same in either case! The $30 million cost for the Fort Hamer Bridge is based on costs projected several years ago. My bet is the Fort Hamer Bridge will cost well more than $50 million by the time construction starts in two years. By the way, the Fort Hamer Bridge has never been described as a hurricane evacuation route.

site,” Jensen said, noting a high demand for classes and heavy use of the gym area. “It will be quite a project. We’re pulling the trigger right now (to get started), but we (have to go through design and permitting, still). We’ll do it as rapidly as we can.” The expansion will include upgrades to lighting and the air-conditioning system, as well as exercise equipment. Pickleball courts will be installed, as well. Jensen said design work is in process for all three projects, which will be completed as quickly as possible, with construction likely starting in 2014 for all three. “This is a big deal for us,” Jensen said, noting plans were put on hold when the economy slowed. “It’s time to expand our facilities to accommodate the demand (we have).” Jensen said he expects the investment for all three projects to be about $5 million, although that figure is only a guess until architectural and other details have been confirmed. Jensen also noted he hopes the facility improvements will generate new membership — a change that will offset completely or minimize potential increases in dues for country club members, at least for now. Contact Pam Eubanks at peubanks@yourobserver.com.

POTENTIAL TIMELINE • Design, engineering, architectural and permitting for all three improvements to occur in 2013 and 2014. • Construction of the driving range to occur in 2014. • Fitness center renovations to begin in 2014 and finish in 2015. • New clubhouse construction to start in 2014 and finish in 2015.

In other business: • Supervisors voted 3-2, with Lee Bettes and Richard Lane dissenting, to set future board meetings for 6 p.m. the third Thursday of the month, starting in October. • Supervisors voted unanimously to hire Rick Schappacher, of Schappacher Engineering, as the district’s new engineer. Schappacher has been providing engineering services to the district on an interim basis. • Supervisors asked district counsel and the district manager to meet with a representative of the Stoneybrook Golf Club about an existing agreement that allows the golf club to permit divers into CDD-owned lakes, on occasion, to collect golf balls. Revenues are shared with the CDD. The district also will research options for the dis-

Do you know what was really lost here? When this project was proposed 12 years ago, it was a federal project paid for by the government. The county commissioners, in their wisdom, pulled out of the project just after the DEIS was completed. The rules, etc., for this project are the same as 12 years ago, but the difference is that now the county is footing the bill. Donald McFadden Bradenton

trict to assume that function. • Supervisors discussed the further erosion of lake banks at golf course holes 10 and 17, despite the installation of riprap there. Schappacher said the original repair was not done correctly. • Supervisors noted time is allotted at each meeting for representatives of the Stoneybrook and Lighthouse Cove homeowners associations and for the Stoneybrook Golf Club, as per stimulated in a settlement agreement. Representatives of those organizations have not spoken at or attended the last several meetings, and supervisors said they wished for more participation. • The next board meeting is set for 5 p.m. Sept. 15. A location has not yet been set.

Polo Grill plans renovations Renovations soon will begin on the Polo Grill and Bar restaurant, which will stay open throughout the remodeling process.

The restaurant’s current chairs will be refinished to create a new look, seen in front.

LAKEWOOD RANCH — Six years after opening, the Polo Grill and Bar, home to the East County’s largest banquet venue, will be getting a facelift, albeit only to the restaurant area. Polo Grill owners Tommy and Jaymie Klauber are busy preparing to renovate their roughly 25,000-square-foot dining area. The restaurant will remain open during renovations. “It’s going to be a different place,” Tommy Klauber said. “Our goal is to add intimacy, brightness and more comfort.” Jaymie Klauber agreed. “We needed to go to the next step,” she said. “We needed to create a style more conducive to the style of dining (we offer).” The new design includes some structural changes, including closing off the kitchen, noise mitigation between the restaurant and bar areas and also the sectioning off of the back part of the restaurant into a separate dining area that can be reserved for parties and other events. The private-dining area will be called the “tack room” and will be

used for regular dining when not reserved. The main area of the restaurant will be reorganized and designed to create space that fosters a sense of intimacy. “I would have liked to do (these changes) from day one,” Tommy Klauber said. “I don’t think the restaurant was properly finished, even according to the (original tenant’s) plan. “We wanted to make sure we were going to be here after five years,” he said of the timing for the project. “We see us being here for a long time, and we want to make this investment now. The economy has grown. It’s a good time to do it. We don’t want to close at all (during renovations); we ask the public to get excited about it and pardon our dust.” Jaymie Klauber’s mother, Nancy Barrie, an interior designer, has been working with her daughter to pick out colors and fabrics for the new design. She called the new scheme “smart and elegant.” Jaymie Klauber said the colors will complement

the Murano glass lights the restaurant already has. “It’s fun, but a little stressful,” Jaymie Klauber said of finalizing design details. “We can’t walk in here anymore without getting excited. It’s going to look totally different.” The restaurateurs are using the opportunity to re-brand the

facility, as well. The Polo Grill will have a new menu — although signature dishes will remain the same — and new staff uniforms, among other changes. The Klaubers anticipate a grand re-opening of the restaurant in November. Contact Pam Eubanks at peubanks@yourobserver.com.

EXTREME MEASURES 5:57 a.m. — 8500 block of State Road 70 E. Criminal Mischief. A suspect threw a tape measure at the victim’s vehicle. It hit the dashboard. When the victim arrived at work, the suspect then threw an unknown object, which struck the driver’s side door. A deputy observed a minor scratch to the side of the vehicle. The victim estimated damages at $150.

The deputy approached the vehicle and smelled marijuana. The man inside the vehicle had marijuana in his pocket. The offender also admitted he had a bag in the back of the vehicle that contained a “large amount of marijuana.” The deputy arrested the offender, who was transported to jail without incident.

Racking up W’s TENNIS

4 — The number of district singles and doubles titles Bongart has won.

Ashley Bongart spent the summer traveling to some of the region’s top USTA and College ITA tournaments in hopes of improving her game.

LAKEWOOD RANCH —  Ashley Bongart is taking the college ranks by storm. After spending the summer competing in a handful of USTA and College ITA tournaments across the region, the Lakewood Ranch High junior is drawing the attention of college coaches and athletes alike. Bongart, who turned 16 years old a few months ago, has defeated players from Florida State University, Auburn University, the University of Tennessee and Furman University, as well as former The Out-of-Door Academy tennis player Caroline Dailey, who will play for the University of South Carolina this year. Bongart also faired well against Auburn’s No. 2 singles player, before losing a close twosetter. “This summer has gone really well,” Bongart says. “I’ve beaten a lot of girls who have been tough. I’ve been playing a lot of college tournaments, and I’ve beaten some of the girls already. So, I feel like I’m kind of there. “I feel like when I play higher competition, I tend to step up more,” she says. “If I know (my opponent) does play in college, then I tend to play better be-

12 — The number of

USTA tournament matches Bongart won this summer.

42 — Bongart’s national

ranking among girls in the class of 2015, according to tennisrecruiting.net.

Lakewood Ranch High junior Ashley Bongart is currently ranked sixth in the state and 11th in the Southeast region for her graduating class. cause I rise to the occasion.” Bongart made the decision to spend the summer traveling to different top-tier tournaments in the hopes of developing her game, particularly her serve, and becoming more explosive and aggressive on the court.

“College is coming up soon; I’m just trying to get better, so I get looked at by different colleges and get noticed,” Bongart says. Bongart, who began training at the Lakewood Ranch Tennis Center when

she was 8 years old, hits the court for an hour or two twice a day. She spends time training with her coach, Chris Marquez, as well as her father, Ed, who also is her high school tennis coach. “It’s good to have a variety,” Bongart says. “They both know what’s best for me, and Chris has helped develop me a lot.” Additionally, Bongart often will hit the court with Dailey and Taylor Lederman, who recently signed with the University of Kentucky, for additional practice. “I like to get with girls in the

13

area who want to hit, because it gives me a chance to play different-style matches,” Bongart says. With her junior year upon her, Bongart will spend the next few months training and competing in preparation for the upcoming high school season. She also plans to start competing in national and minor league professional tournaments. “She’s established herself in Florida,” Marquez says. “Now, she needs to get out in that competitive field and develop her game. College tennis is a whole new ball game.” Bongart, who captured Class 3A No. 1 singles and No. 1 doubles titles this spring, has aspirations of playing Division I tennis for a nationally ranked program and becoming one of the top college players in the country. Bongart has been a Florida Gators fan since she was a child, but she’s keeping her options open. Marquez has received positive feedback on Bongart from a number of college coaches, including from Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, the University of Mississippi and Georgia Tech, among others. “Her upside is very high, and coaches see that,” Marquez says. “It would mean a lot to play college tennis,” Bongart says. “That means that I’ve reached that level where every match you play will be tough because they are all good players. I’ll know I’m up there with the best.” Contact Jen Blanco at jblanco@yourobserver.com.

Competitors in the mixed 4s race toward the finish line.

When should I see a sports medIcIne doctor? I love athletics. Whether it’s from internal competition against myself or from another competitor, athletics has been a major influence that has developed my personal strength and confidence. But like many athletes who push themselves, I have been limited from my best due to injury. Playing through these injuries only frustrated me as my performance and confidence suffered, on and off the field. While most lingering injuries can be treated with rest and activity modification, some of these problems may represent a more serious issue. Visiting a sports medicine physician can help with identifying the cause of these problems. Sports

medicine physicians specialize in the treatment of sports injuries to all levels of athletes. Our common goal is to minimize further injury and get athletes back into the game, whether that’s for the weekend warrior or professional athlete. Recent advancements in our field have altered the way injuries are managed, allowing athletes to return to the field sooner, stronger, and with more confidence. If you are having difficulty performing at the top of your game, visiting a sports medicine physician may just be what the doctor ordered. Dr. Gibbs is with Sarasota Orthopedic Associates. For an appointment please call 941.951.2663. www.SOA.md LV6510
