Manatee and Sarasota commissioners will meet to discuss the merger of both county transit systems and the possible privatization of the two services in a move to increase efficiencies.

EAST COUNTY — For the neighbors who just collaborated to bring a world rowing championship here, an effort by Manatee and Sarasota counties to merge their transit systems is the link to connect a grand vision. Commissioners representing

both counties have already met privately to discuss jointly operating their services — Manatee County Area Transit (MCAT) and Sarasota County Area Transit (SCAT) — under a single, private manager. They will come together for a

public discussion Oct. 15, at a joint commission meeting dedicated to the topic, at the Bradenton Area Convention Center, where the commissioners will try to set an interlocal agreement allowing them to secure a procurement for private sector bids to

run a shared system. “There are lot of good things happening in the near future,” said Jim Van Pelt, a public transportation planner for the Sarasota-Manatee Metropolitan Plan-

The trucks are part of the Pink Heals Tour and are driving around the country to raise awareness for all types of cancer. Each stop the trucks make raises money for a different charity. The Center for Building Hope is an organization that offers free information, programs and services to help support and connect cancer patients, caregivers and family members.

HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL

by Josh Siegel | Staff Writer

Braden River band marches on With the Manatee County School District coming off a multimillion-dollar budget deficit, money is tighter at schools this year. The result can be unseen impacts, but schools — such as Braden River High — are working to overcome them. EAST COUNTY — Kendall Carrier gathered his defending class 3A state marching band champions this summer and told them they would not be traveling to road football games this season — nor would they have district

funds to fix or replace instruments. The Braden River High School band responded to their director the only way they know how. “Yes, sir,” they said. “I told them straight up: We

have budget issues,” Carrier said. “We are real with our kids. They took it in stride. They understand.” Added John D’Amico, a junior

GLOBAL

NETWORKING Carl Hobert, a Boston University professor, led a workshop at Out-of-Door Academy called ‘Rwanda: One Village, Six People.’ The day was meant to boost the global citizenship of students.

Estate-sized homes on estate-sized lots

ODA and Booker students, including Janum Trivedi, center, learned that posture often determined how diplomatic counterparts perceive one another. Students played one of six roles, based on real-life: Bernadette, Frederic, Ancille, Joseph, Charles and Perpetune. Students negotiated with other characters to reach an agreement on the division of a contested area of Rwanda, near its borders with Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The case study takes place in present-day Rwanda, the east African state still recovering from the 1994 genocide. Students read background on the case study about two weeks before the event. Set during a complex time in which the current president, Paul Kagame, pushes national development and education but faces allegations of political repression, the case involves ownership of a contested piece of land in the Gisenyi Province of northern Rwanda. A wave of Hutus — the historical majority class to the minority Tutsis — has returned to Rwanda after the genocide. Every few minutes, the students would switch circles and negotiate with new people — from both ODA and Booker —

about a different aspect of the dispute. “At ODA, we know each other’s views before we walk in,” said Caroline Whitten, an ODA senior. “We know other students’ political beliefs. We know each other outside the classroom. We know what they will bring to the table. Here, we had to role play it and advocate for our character to people (from Booker) we’re not familiar with.” In between each negotiating session, Hobert, often raising his voice and waving his arms, gave advice in diplomacy. Hobert — who has traveled to Chad, Haiti and Rwanda with Axis of Hope — formed his hands into a “T,” like a timeout, explaining it signifies the most important diplomatic element: trust. “When you go to somebody and say something, you better go to somebody else and say the same thing,” Hobert said. “You know what happens when you say something else? You shatter the trust.” At one point, he squatted to get eye-level with a student sitting in a chair. Hobert told

The Majesty Of

the students good negotiation comes from seeing things at your counterpart’s level. Trivedi, the ODA senior playing Fredric, claims Bernadette’s land as his own. His family left the land during the 1962 Hutu uprising, and he possesses his father’s original title to the property. Trivedi, like most, found it difficult to stay quiet while others shouted competing opinions. But, as he learned, waiting out the chaos made his point settle in that much more. In round two of negotiations, he told Joseph, whose job is to settle land disputes, that he would be willing to share half the land with Bernadette. “It is important to get the opportunity to learn a b o u t s o m e thing that we’re not that familiar about,” Trivedi said. “Sometimes we get too involved in our local community and forget there’s a larger world out there. It makes it personal when you have to assume a role and maintain that role even if you don’t agree with its world view.” Hobert even arranged a Skype conversation between the students and Mathilde Mukantabana, the ambassador of Rwanda to the United States. The ambassador took questions from the students. Jillian James, a Booker

student, asked Mukantabana what it required for her to assume such a powerful position as a woman. “Women haven’t had it handed to them,” the ambassador replied through the computer. “There were no women in power in 1994. We had to prove ourselves. We are at a very exciting place in Rwandan society because we feel empowered.”

LAKEWOOD RANCH — Janum Trivedi, an Out-of-Door Academy senior, sat at the front of his seat and leaned forward, vouching for Fredric, a 22-year-old Tutsi herder who recently migrated from Uganda and wants to claim the land he left behind. Trivedi, playing Fredric, a character from a case study based on a real person, negotiated for the herder’s fate like it was his own — knowing well the implications. Students at ODA’s Upper School Lakewood Ranch campus reached outside their classroom wall’s during their Raising Global IQ workshop Oct. 2. Carl Hobert, a Boston University professor, led a one-day workshop, called “Rwanda: One Village, Six People,” with both ODA seniors and students from Booker High School. Kenneth Summers, an ODA teacher who teaches “Issues in Contemporary Society,” invited Hobert and Booker students to join his class for the workshop. It was the fourth such workshop Summers has organized. Hobert, also the founder of Axis of Hope, a nonprofit he founded that teaches global citizenship to youth, has managed each of them. But it was the first time Booker students participated — an outreach by Summers to introduce his class to people they didn’t know. The students sat in the library, in chairs forming a circle. There were three sets of circles. Role-playing a case study based on real-world events, the students assumed the identity of a specific character.

Carl Hobert, the Boston University professor who led the workshop, demonstrated with Booker senior Eduardo Ortiz the importance of maintaining eye-level contact with counterparts.

EAST COUNTY — Rosemary Altea fears death for two reasons, and they have nothing to do with her own fate. If Altea were to die, she would leave her daughter and grandson behind, and she worries how those closest to her would handle it. “I fear to leave my daughter and grandson in the physical sense,” Altea said. “Knowing what I know, I don’t fear the dying process.” Altea, 67, a self-proclaimed psychic, spiritual medium and healer, will be a special guest at the grand opening of Gold Gallery Auctions in the Creekwood Crossing Shopping Center from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Oct. 17. There, the internationally known New York Times best-selling author and teacher will discuss life after death and the art of psychometry — the ability, which Altea says she has, to absorb the energy of an object, such as jewelry and gold, and connect it back to the energy of its owner. Jennifer Cascardo, Gold Gallery Auctions’ marketing director and Altea’s friend, convinced Altea to attend the event, the beginning of a planned return to the spotlight, after a few idle years. Born in Leicester, England, Altea says she saw faces and heard voices as a girl. “I didn’t think it was a good thing,” Altea said. “I was terrified. My mom was ready to send me to the towers (psychiatric).” In her mid-30s as a single mother with a 10-year-old daughter, Altea met an old man who believed in spirits. Soon, Altea says she discovered her spirit guide, Grey Eagle, who advised her to publish her first book, “The Eagle and the Rose.”

Josh Siegel

Rosemary Altea says her ability to connect with the spirit world does not make her better than anyone. “I still steal cookies from the cookie jar,” she jokes.

Before she first realized what connecting with spirits meant for her personal life — that her needs always come second — Altea feared being alone. “People ask me if I’m ever afraid, but I only see things from my perspective,” Altea said. “Scientists say this world is an illusion. Truth is, people in spirit are more solid and real than we are.” Even if that’s true, Altea admits maintaining relationships with ordinary people can be difficult. She hasn’t remarried. But that hasn’t stopped Altea from embracing her line of work. “I think it’s very hard to have regular relationships because they always have to take second place,” Altea said. “It means more to help someone connect with that grandfather. I am not here to convince you one way or the other. I am here to change people’s lives.”

Festival brings family together The annual East County rite, the Hunsader Farms Pumpkin Festival, will feel different this year after the loss of family patriarch, Jim.

Eight-month-old Emma Pillsbury looks picture-perfect at last year’s Hunsader Farms Pumpkin Festival. family-oriented, and that really motivates us.” Jim Hunsader founded the farm with his late brothers, Paul and Robert, in 1967. He died Aug. 17, a month before his sons, Mike and David Hunsader and their wives, Trish and Kim, along with some of his 14 grandchildren, opened the farm for its 47th season. Up until the last two years of his life, when he battled with Parkinson’s disease and the remnants of a stroke he

suffered in January 2011, Jim Hunsader made sure the festival ran smoothly from the driver’s seat of his golf cart. This year’s festival, held at Hunsader Farms, 5500 CR 675, Bradenton, will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. the next three weekends: Oct. 12 to 13, Oct. 19 to 20 and Oct. 26 to 27. Entry is $8 for adults; children 12 and under are free. Parking costs $5 per vehicle. The festival will feature longtime favorites such as

children’s train rides, charity pumpkin games, a petting zoo and frog-jumping championships, but it also will include new acts, such as the Gunslinger Monster Truck Show and the Justino Zoppe Magic Show. For the first time, specially served only the first weekend, there will be deep-fried Wisconsin cheese curds — going back to when the founding Hunsaders milked cows in Wisconsin before treading south for tomatoes. New food vendors include Billy Boy’s Subs, Smoothie King and more. The roster of craft and antique vendors is full for the first weekend and filling up fast for the next two. Connie Hunsader, Jim’s wife, will assume her usual role, preparing pies in the Eat Shack. In the days leading up to the festival, she steers Jim’s golf cart, its new nametag — a sticker that spells “Papa’s Cart” — written in cursive. “She has a real eye for detail,” Trish Hunsader said. “Being out here has really brightened her up. It’s her therapy. We all have a renewed energy and excitement.” Contact Josh Siegel at jsiegel@yourobserver.com.

EAST COUNTY — They all acknowledge this year is different — how loss has shaken up 20 years of doing the same thing. Every September since 1992, 30-plus members of the Hunsader extended family gather at their farm and prepare for the Pumpkin Festival. As part of a seven-day-perweek ritual, they unload hay from a trailer. They stuff and dress scarecrows and scatter them throughout 1,000 acres of land. They plow a corn maze. This year, it twists and turns to spell out, “Rest in peace, Papa.” The Hunsader Farms Pumpkin Festival will kick off Saturday, Oct. 12, with the recent loss of the family patriarch, Jim Hunsader, tightening the core of an event all about bringing people together. “People always wonder, ‘How do you keep doing this?’” said festival co-organizer Trish Hunsader. “It’s so much work. But the older we get, we hear from more and more adults who tell you this was a part of their childhood. With Jim gone, it reinforces the generational nature of this. We’re so close as a family, and this is so

NEWSBRIEFS + Lakewood Ranch Town Hall to be early-voting place Lakewood Ranch Town Hall will be an early-voting location starting with the primary election in 2014.  Town Hall Executive Director Eva Rey and Mike Bennett, Manatee County supervisor of elections, recently met to discuss the issue, which had been debated.  Rey has assured that clubs and others who use Town Hall will not be displaced. Previously, East County voters had to drive to the Supervisor of Elections office on 301 Boulevard for early voting.  “The voters in Lakewood Ranch have been asking for an early-voting location in mid-county, and this will serve as one of the few that will be in place for next year’s election,” Bennett said.  Town Hall will also be used as a polling place on the day of the primary vote and on Election Day in 2014.  Bennett said the county will continue to expand early-voting locations as a result of a 2012 law that expands early voting location options.

in Lakewood Ranch originally approved in 2008, at its land-use meeting Oct. 3. 

 Commissioners voted 7-0 in favor of Schroeder-Manatee Ranch’s proposal for less commercial and office space in the first phase of the project and more residential housing than originally requested. The plan calls for SMR to exchange 100,000 square feet of commercial space and 100,000 square feet of office space for 1,008 single-family homes.  “The change allows us to move more rapidly in producing the residential product, which will give the critical mass needed for the commercial and office uses that follow,” said Todd Pokrywa, vice president of planning for SMR.
 Original approvals for Lakewood Centre allowed for exchanges of land use to respond to changing market demand. 

 County staff reviewed the proposed changes and determined this new mix

CUTS / PAGE 1 drum major: “We trust our director. When he tells us to do to something, we do it.” When a district undergoes what turned out to be a $38 million shortfall, as the Manatee County School District did last year, schools have to cut back in areas that aren’t always seen. Provided less internal account money for her school this year, just like all the district schools, Jennifer Gilray, Braden River High School’s principal, had to make tough decisions on how to distribute the money she did have. There would be no money for the marching band to travel to away football games, such as the school’s final game at DeSoto County High School Nov. 8, she decided, and there would be no freshman football program this year. Freshmen could still play for the junior varsity squad. The marching band also did not travel to a game at Sarasota High School Oct. 4. But they did march at Southeast High School Sept. 13, and they will perform at Palmetto High School, Nov. 1. “You just have to make deci-

sions,” Gilray said. “These are not forever decisions. It affects all aspects of our organization. We are doing the best we can in a tough situation. We want to make sure kids get the best high school experience.” Schools across the county had to make similar decisions, but most of the cuts don’t look the same, because a school decides individually how to budget its money from the district. The district directly funds some accounts, such as the instrument repair and replacement account, which applies to all music-related programs within a school. The district provided no money in that account this year — for any school. Schools could set aside money from their internal accounts for instrument maintenance, if they wanted. Carrier says his school usually gets approximately $9,000 from the district for instrument repair and replacement — a common occurrence for a band whose practices routinely go four hours and whose season, counting summer camp, goes year-round. Travel to a road football game typically costs $1,000 per game,

Tindale-Oliver, a consultant the Sarasota-Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) hired, has identified three routes that can serve Lakewood Ranch. A project-review committee made up of MPO board members, MCAT and SCAT staff and Florida Department of Transportation employees will review the routes later this month and recommend one for the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners to approve.

ning Organization. “It’s not if, but when. There is so much interaction between the two counties, it stands to make sense to have easier access between them.” Manatee County leaders and transit experts believe any such system could be a model for the Tampa Bay region. Pinellas and Hillsborough counties have explored the idea. Ed Hunzeker, Manatee County administrator and a proponent of a merger since he assumed his position in 2006, says any shared transit system will increase efficiencies without adding costs to taxpayers. He cites a system in St. Louis that began when he was chief financial officer of a regional transportation authority there in the 1980s. That service, run by a private management firm, serves seven counties in two states. Similarly, the Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority serves Orange, Seminole and Osceola counties in the Orlando area. Hunzeker says talk about shared bus service has nothing to do with recent growth in the counties. Rather, a change in leadership at both the transit agencies has pushed a longstalled and overdue idea. “This is the starting point for a bigger project,” Hunzeker said. “It has been a vision of a lot of people for a long time. This has nothing to with the Mall at University Town Center and the rowing. It has everything to do with improving the ability of people to get around. We can’t keep spending money on widening roads and building multi-roads. We can take advantage of efficiencies from shared transit, and with money saved from efficiencies we can expand service without going to taxpayers.” MCAT’s 2013 farebox recovery, a measure of how much of the operating budget is offset by riders’ fares, was 12.8% — leaving a significant amount of the budget

for a private company to offset with cost-saving measures. The conversation comes as an MPO consultant, Tindale-Oliver & Associates, completes a study to determine if bus service can serve Lakewood Ranch, a growing, urban-trending, masterplanned community with no mass transit. Van Pelt says Tindale-Oliver has designed three alternative routes (see map) that identify how bus service would work in Lakewood Ranch. A projectreview committee made up of MPO board members, MCAT and SCAT staff and Florida Department of Transportation employees will review the routes later this month and recommend one for the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners to approve. State funding for the cause becomes available in fiscal year 2015-16, so implementation of bus service to Lakewood Ranch would not begin until then. 
 As Lakewood Ranch waits, MCAT and SCAT have already made moves to collaborate. The two agencies co-operate Route 99, which travels north and south on U.S. 41, servicing passengers from Palmetto to downtown Sarasota. MCAT and SCAT have two buses each serving that route. SCAT has a partnership with Benderson Development to design a transfer station at the northeast corner of North Cattlemen and DeSoto roads. Van Pelt says SCAT and MCAT will meet at the location — by the Mall at University Town Center — to provide services east and west. SCAT has also been working on a route that will also help serve shoppers and employers at the under-construction mega mall. The two-bus route will start on U.S. 41 and will serve SarasotaBradenton International Airport and areas along University Parkway to University Town Center and Benderson Park. Hunzeker said, depending on the proposals private firms provide in the procurement phase,

the governments would decide if more buses or people are required for the expanded service. A new shared system would still be publicly owned and funded, and the governments could still apply for federal grants to add buses and other capital. Money from taxpayers, which Hunzeker and MPO officials say won’t change, won’t cross county lines. When the governments receive the proposals, county staff will rank the best ones and commissioners vote on the best one. Or they can reject the plan all together.

A public hearing will likely come at some point. The two counties do have obvious differences. SCAT, with more routes and, thus, capital and people, is unionized, while MCAT is not. But the steps toward collaboration so far mean something. “This level of cooperation far exceeds anything I’ve ever seen,” said Mike Howe, director of the MPO. “There is going to be a viable transportations system that connects Lakewood Ranch to the west. This is going to happen. Everyone is focused and committed.”

Carrier said, with most of the money going to pay for a bus. The Braden River Marching Band also travels to competitions other than football, such as the annual Florida Marching Band Coalition State Championships (FMBC) at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, where the Pirates were crowned state champs last year. The marching band’s Boosters association covers those expenses, mostly through selling concessions at football games and also through fundraisers. Donna Love, the Booster president, says they raised $1,000 selling snow cones and taking donations at an event this year, and at least $3,000 at a walk-a-thon in September. “We make a priority list of what’s absolutely necessary to pay for,” Love said. “We have a very supportive band family.” Love said the Boosters have set aside some money for instrument repair and replacement, however, they do not have the funds to contribute to footballgame travel. Braden River marching band members say they have become closer because of the budget

constraints. After all, those five hours spent performing at an away football game can be utilized to work on a new production that will help them win another FMBC state title, they say. This year’s production is called “Art” and, in it, the bandmates play music using art as props. At a recent practice Oct. 3, Carrier and some of his band members rolled out giant paintings, such as “American Gothic,” from a storage trailer onto their practice field. “It’s a bummer that we can’t travel everywhere, but it’s always good to have an extra run to prepare for competition,” said senior Sam Savage. “Some of the football players do come up to us in school and say, ‘It sucks you’re not there,’ because we are part of the whole hype thing.” D’Amico, a drum major and leader, just enjoys creating art, wherever it happens. “We are all mature enough to handle this,” D’Amico said. “Instead of sitting around a lot at football games, we’re playing music out on the field.” Contact Josh Siegel at jsiegel@ yourobserver.com.

THE GOOD NEWS // BRIDES AGAINST BREAST CANCER

by Nick Friedman | Staff Writer

Everybody has a story to tell. It’s amazing what people say in that little room. There are some strong women out there, and it’s amazing what people can survive and go through. — KAREN DERITTER, BRIDES AGAINST BREAST CANCER

KAREN DERITTER Bridal consultant // Brides Against Breast Cancer

When she arrived, she began searching online for job and volunteer opportunities, and she found the Gulf Coast Community Foundation’s You’d Be Perfect For This website. While browsing, she learned about an opportunity to volunteer at Brides Against Breast Cancer, a local nonprofit organization that contributes funds to programs for cancer patients, their families and caregivers. Having been personally impacted by breast cancer, she saw the opportunity as a chance to relate to people with similar experiences. “I thought, ‘Oh, I would be perfect for this,’” says DeRitter. “It fit the bill. My mother is a breast-cancer survivor, so it’s nice to be able to give back and support other families going through the same type of thing. I feel a connection, and I’m lucky to meet so many strong women who have survived and are able to tell their story.” DeRitter worked as a volunteer for a few months, working one-on-one with brides to help them pick a dress, and eventually she was hired as a bridal consultant. Just a few months after moving to Sarasota, DeRitter says her volunteer opportunity had not only helped her

As a newcomer to Sarasota, Karen DeRitter was searching for a way to connect with her new community. After relocating in December from upstate New York, the retired schoolteacher began looking for ways to meet new people, get involved and learn a new set of skills that she could use to make a difference. “I was concerned about moving,” she says. “I lived in a small community for 30 years, and I thought, ‘How do I start again?’ I’d asked my kids to do it when they went off to college, and here I was getting ready to do it again.”

become immersed in a new city, but it was also a rewarding experience. She says she enjoys helping women plan one of the happiest days of their lives and that she’s thankful for the chance to meet and connect with the women who come into the store. “Everybody has a story to tell,” she says. “It’s amazing what people say in that little room. There are some strong women out there, and it’s amazing what people can survive and go through. I’m lucky to be part of an organization that’s so passionate and committed to making a difference in people’s lives.”

Myakka City Fire Station became home to six chickens as a part of the Manatee County Mosquito Control’s project to test for West Nile virus. Six more chickens were housed in a private residence near Lena Road Industrial Park, the East County Observer reported Oct. 10, 2002. The chickens were placed strategically throughout the county to attract virus-carrying mosquitoes. Chickens are able to contract the disease and then thwart it with antibodies, so their eggs are not affected.

Braden River Elementary School kicked off its monthlong push for pedestrian safety Oct. 3, 2007. The East County Observer reported Oct. 11, 2007, 500 students and parents walked, biked, rolled and scooted to school Oct. 3, for the school’s Walk and Roll to School Day, in honor of International Walk to School Day. The month-long event included other outdoor activities.

ODA Thunder taps new head coach Former Venice High and USF outfielder Tim Orlosky was recently named The Out-of-Door Academy’s new varsity baseball coach. LAKEWOOD RANCH — Tim Orlosky couldn’t wait to get to the ballpark. He spent all week thinking about it. There was just something about the thrill of competition and playing around in the dugout with his teammates that the then 5-year-old couldn’t get enough of. The feeling only intensified the older he got. Orlosky became enthralled with

the sport, and he soon realized he was right where he belonged. “I wasn’t terribly good at the other sports that I tried, but baseball was easier and I enjoyed it,” Orlosky says. “I couldn’t wait to get there. I lived for it when I was younger. “I like the competition and winning, but I also like the bond,” Orlosky says. “It’s fun to be a part of a larger group and the camaraderie

that comes with it.” Now the former Venice High and University of South Florida outfielder is hoping to share some of his insight and passion for the game with his new team. Orlosky recently was named The Out-of-Door Academy’s new varsity baseball coach. Orlosky becomes the program’s third head coach, replacing former coach Billy Dietrich.

“Tim embraces the core values that ODA stands for: excellence, respect, integrity and service,” ODA Athletic Director Brett Timmons says. “He has a desire to get back out into the community where he (played) baseball. He has so much respect, and I think he’ll be able to take what coach (Billy) Dietrich and (Mike) Verrill did and push us on to the next level.” After graduating from Venice in 2001, Orlosky went on to play for Daytona State College, where

sistant athletic director and assistant varsity baseball coach at Windermere Preparatory School in Orlando. “I really like coaching,” Orlosky says. “I enjoyed playing, but the most rewarding thing about baseball is following the guys who I coached and watching them grow up. Watching them become men and good people is the most enjoyable part for me.” Orlosky knew about ODA and had seen the progress the program had made over the past few years. So, when the position became available a couple of months ago, Orlosky jumped at the opportunity. “It’s kind of like coming back home for me,” Orlosky says. “My No. 1 objective is definitely to grow the players, not necessarily talent wise, but to make them better people for having been in the program.” In addition to his coaching duties, Orlosky also will oversee the maintenance of ODA’s athletic infrastructure, as the school’s new associate athletic director for facilities management. Orlosky also will be responsible for making sure all of ODA’s athletic facilities are pristine and preparing them for all home competitions.

he was named an All-Conference Outfielder in 2002 and 2003 and 1st Team All-Region in 2003. He also helped Daytona State capture its first conference championship in 2003. Orlosky went on to play at the University of South Florida, for which he batted .327 with seven homeruns, as the Bulls’ leadoff hitter. “I felt less pressure at the plate,” Orlosky says. “Statistically, you’re going to fail more times that you’re going to succeed, and yet you can still be a great hitter.” Upon graduation, Orlosky, who earned his bachelor’s degree in education, quickly began to miss being on the field every day. Orlosky decided to reach out to his former coach and, before long, he returned to Daytona State where he served as the Falcons’ hitting and outfield coach, as well as the head coach of the developmental team. Orlosky served as a JV assistant coach at Venice High before taking over as the JV head coach from 2008 to 2009, when he coached the Indians to a 19-4 record. Most recently, Orlosky served as the as-

Highly advanced robotic surgery in Manatee County I would like to thank Dr. Rekkas for the masterful work he performed in removing my enlarged spleen. While initially I was not inclined to have robotic surgery, Dr. Rekkas’ consultation changed my mind and I’m glad I did. My recovery was amazingly fast and the scars are negligible. I’m a true believer in technology and an advocate for daVinci Robotic Surgery.

At Mosaic, our 3,000-plus Florida employees understand that watersheds are the lifeblood of our drinking water supply, estuaries and coastal economies. In planning our phosphate operations, we use state-of-the-art technology and hydrology modeling to verify how surface and groundwater flows before, during and after mining. Working with regulators, we can design reclaimed landscapes that provide flow to preserved floodplains — thereby replenishing flows that may have been impacted decades before mining.
