Is Gulf of Mexico Drive safe for pedestrians? Crosswalks are part of a wider strategy to keep people safe crossing the island’s main road. BRET HAUFF STAFF WRITER

T

he death of a man crossing Gulf of Mexico Drive last week once again brought into focus an issue familiar to Longboat Key residents: pedestrian safety on Gulf of Mexico Drive. Warren Roberts, 85, was killed along the stretch of road near Whitney Beach, crossing from his home to the beach before dawn, something he did nearly every day. Roberts died about 600 yards from the nearest crosswalk, which features flashing lights, warning signs and roadway markings. “People tend to cross where they are,” said Pam Fischer, a pedestrian safety consultant with the Governors Highway Safety Association. “If the crosswalk is any distance, they may not be amenable to using it.” Mayor George Spoll, who was at the scene of the crash, said more could be done to improve safety for pedestrians on Gulf of Mexico Drive, including possibly adding a crosswalk at the location of the accident. There are five on-demand crosswalks on Longboat Key that allow pedestrians to find their way across a thoroughfare with speed limits as high as 45 mph. That corridor also hosts 12 beach access points, according to the town website, many of which are more than 100 yards from the nearest crosswalk. But that’s not to say that crosswalks can be placed anywhere to provide safe crossing. A crosswalk is the infrastructure established to tell pedestrians where it’s safe to cross. Highway engineers avoid placing them in inherently hazardous sites, like on blind curves or in high speed zones. The Florida Department of Transportation uses a national standard to establish where crosswalks go and what kind of signs will alert drivers to their presence. Those requirements suggest any section of roadway with 20 pedestrian crossings per hour should have a crosswalk, said Zac Burch, an FDOT spokesman. “There’s a balancing act; there are some places that we don’t want to encourage people to cross at,” Burch said. “We cant stop people from doing it, but we’d rather encourage people to cross at a different location.” And older people, often because

TIPS FOR CROSSWALK SAFETY n Press the button to activate the crosswalk’s flashing lights. n Wait a few seconds and look both ways. Don’t cross until motorists are stopping to allow you to cross the road. n Use the designated crosswalks. Crosswalks are not 100% safe, but their use is often far less risky than simply walking across anywhere. n Wear bright clothing, especially at night.

of frailty, are more susceptible to fatal injuries when hit by vehicles, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Almost one in five of the pedestrians killed by motor vehicles in 2015 was 65 or older, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That demographic constitutes almost three-quarters of Longboat Key’s population, according to the Census Bureau. Pedestrian mobility and safety are part of the FDOT’s Barrier Island Traffic Study. It has been working with the town and other municipalities for more than a year. Burch said FDOT has been collecting data on how the town’s crosswalks are used and where new ones might be considered. “What happened earlier this week is tragic. We are not going to rest on our laurels and accept that this is a one-off [circumstance],” Burch said last week. “We’re certainly going to work with the town

ON DEMAND

CROSSWALK NUMBERS

Pedestrians can cross on demand at five sites. Crosswalks also exist at traffic lights.

on the crossing and continue to monitor the area to do all that we can to make the improvements that are necessary.” But crosswalks were not always fully supported on Longboat Key. Two months after they were first installed on Gulf of Mexico Drive in 2016, a pedestrian was struck in a crosswalk near Country Club Shores. The town demanded upgrades or the removal of the crosswalks. FDOT made the upgrades but did not agree to add small medians near the crosswalk sites, designed to further heighten driver awareness. Other options for ensuring pedestrian safety also may be considered, Burch said, including more signage to alert motorists to upcoming pedestrian crossings or decreasing the speed limit along the corridor. Speed limits are “a real issue” when it comes to pedestrian

HOW THEY GOT HERE

Aug. 7, 2012: A vehicle hit and killed a pedestrian who was sitting in front of the Quick-nEz store. The driver of the vehicle accelerated while approaching the store instead of braking, causing the vehicle to strike the person sitting at one of the tables in front of the store.

The crosswalks came to fruition after Jo Schatterman, 73, of Elk Grove Village, Ill., was fatally struck by an SUV the evening of Jan. 28, 2012. Schatterman was returning to the Key at dusk from St. Armands Circle with her sister, Myra Sandler, when she crossed the southbound traffic lane in the 2200 block of Gulf of Mexico Drive en route to Sandler’s Islander Club condominium. That fatality prompted discussions between the town and the Florida Department of Transportation for ways to promote pedestrian and bicycle safety.

safety, Fischer said. A pedestrian hit by a vehicle traveling 40 miles per hour is 40% more likely to die from a crash than if the motorist was driving 30 miles per hour, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Police Chief Pete Cumming said the average speed of drivers on Gulf of Mexico Drive, on any given day, is often slower than the speed limit of 45 miles per hour. When he saw a motorist drive through an on-demand crosswalk with its lights flashing recently, Cumming said he stopped the driver. “If those lights are flashing and people are crossing, we’re stopping them,” Cumming said of motorists who don’t stop when required. Education about pedestrian and motorist safety is also an important component of making roadways safe for everyone who uses them, Burch said. Part of making a roadway safer is ensuring that motorists and pedestrians follow the rules of the road. Fischer recommended pedestrians use a free mobile application called PedSafe, which flashes random amber pattern on a phone screen to alert motorists. Bright or reflective clothing may also be helpful to alert drivers to a pedestrian’s location. “I can’t overstate how important it is for pedestrians to be as visible as possible,” Fischer said.

OPENING RECEPTION: MAY 24, 5:30-8PM

Town commissioners have appointed Debra Williams to the Planning and Zoning Board, filling a vacancy left by Ken Schneier. Williams is no newcomer to public service. She served on a Planning and Zoning Board for almost five years in Rumson, N.J., Williams wrote in her application for the position. She said that work prepared her for a seat on Longboat Key’s Planning and Zoning Board. “We face many of the same coastal-related issues relating to development, flood preparedness, resiliency to storm impact and other natural hazards,” Williams wrote in her application. The 55-year-old Longboat Key resident spent her professional career in the technology sector, working for 16 years with AT&T as a consultant. After she left AT&T, Williams worked with technology startups on technology infrastructure, human resources and operations, she wrote in her application.

Debra Williams

Williams’ appointment, which came with unanimous support from the Town Commission, accompanied three reappointments to the board: Chairwoman BJ Bishop, Philip Younger and Ken Marsh. The Planning and Zoning Board operates as a seven-person board established to make decisions about changes to comprehensive road and zoning plans, applications for subdivisions and motions to adapt the building and zoning codes as the board sees fit. Williams said although she moved to Longboat Key two years ago, she and her family have been visiting the area for years and decided to settle when all of her children were in college. “If I were appointed, I would bring this experience, dedication, and a fresh perspective to the Longboat Key Planning and Zoning Board,” Williams wrote.

Residents, officials monitor bayfront traffic Longboat Key residents are hopeful changes along U.S. 41 will reduce seasonal congestion. DAVID CONWAY OBSERVER STAFF

O

n U.S. 41, in the middle of one of the most scrutinized stretches of roadway in the area, a long, metal arm has been

erected over the street — a signal of imminent change. The Florida Department of Transportation is constructing a pedestrian crosswalk connecting First Street to Ritz-Carlton Drive in Sarasota. It’s part of a series of modifications between Fruitville Road and Gulfstream Avenue, a crucial corridor for those traveling to and from Longboat Key and other barrier islands. In March, FDOT added an extra left-turn lane onto westbound Gulfstream Avenue at U.S. 41.

David Conway

Barrier island residents asked the city of Sarasota to sign off on that change last August, hoping to move more cars through a congested intersection. Sarasota City Manager Tom Barwin expressed some skepticism about the proposal, but the Sarasota City Commission agreed with the citizens, voting unanimously to implement the change. The extra turn lane has been in place for just more than a month. Island residents believe it’s helping.

1.50%

“It seems like a number of my constituents here on Longboat have indicated that generally, the traffic flows from Longboat Key over to Sarasota this year at peak times seemed a bit lighter,” Town Commissioner Jack Daly said. Daly pointed out that there’s no concrete data on the significance of that perception. Still, he thinks the extra turn lane has helped, too. He’s hopeful the addition of a northbound right-turn lane along Fruitville Road on U.S. 41 will lead to more improvements. The new pedestrian crosswalk at First Street may complicate the equation. Those interested in reducing congestion along U.S. 41 have asked whether a pedestrian-activated signal will work against their goal. When Sarasota approved the changes in August, FDOT presented models indicating the crosswalk would create a longer average delay, even after the addition of the third left-turn lane on Gulfstream. The city of Sarasota has prioritized pedestrian-oriented improvements on U.S. 41. Barwin said the opening of the Vue Sarasota Bay condominium and Westin Sarasota hotel has increased foot traffic heading to and from the bayfront near Gulfstream. Even with the uncertainty regarding the effects of the First Street crosswalk, Daly is optimistic the new traffic configuration could be a long-term solution on U.S. 41. FDOT and Sarasota have said the changes are meant to be temporary. Daly, however, wants the state to study how the roadway functions in 2019 before making any decision. “We’d be best advised to get that experience next peak season here before finally committing

CORRECTION A formal proposal to build a center-turn lane on Gulf of Mexico Drive extends from an area adjacent to Country Club Shores to a spot less than a mile to the north. Residents have requested an island-length lane, but there has been no formal action on such a plan. A story in the May 3 Observer about the proposal was incorrect.

to what FDOT is continuing to support and propose — namely, a roundabout at the GulfstreamU.S. 41 intersection,” Daly said. FDOT is evaluating the prospect of adding a roundabout to that intersection. Both state and city officials have said a roundabout could provide the optimal balance of improving traffic flow and pedestrian safety. Daly is skeptical about that claim. He worried adding more pedestrian-activated crosswalks within the roundabouts could exacerbate traffic delays. He acknowledged the city’s desire to effectively move pedestrians and suggested a pedestrian overpass could allow people to move across U.S. 41 without affecting drivers. As city and Key leaders look to the future of U.S. 41, the competing interests of the two groups will play a role in conversations about any additional changes. “The city’s focus, understandably, is on pedestrian mobility,” Daly said. “Longboat Key, and I think Lido Key and the other barrier islands, are focused on automobile traffic.”

Contractors survey Colony site for possible repairs BRET HAUFF STAFF WRITER

Unicorp National Developments President Chuck Whittall met Tuesday with a former competitor for development of the Colony Beach & Tennis Resort property to discuss the future of beachfront units. Whittall and his company earlier this year gained approval from the town to redevelop the property at 1620 Gulf of Mexico Drive into a 166-room St. Regis hotel with 78 condominiums. But several obstacles remain, including ownership of the individual Colony units. Some owners con-

tend their condo units can be renovated. They have rejected offers from Whittall to sell. Before Whittall can proceed, Unicorp must gain the right to raze everything on the property. Manfred Welfonder, who previously proposed a development

plan of his own for the site, said he was acting on behalf of a group of beachfront-unit owners — including Blake Fleetwood, Ruth Kreindler, Shelly Rabin, Gordon Bratter, Jeff Jagid and Andy Adams, some of whom have challenged the development project in court — to determine whether the beachfront units can be salvaged. Together, they own dozens of former Colony units. Here’s what most who were there on Tuesday, reached by phone, agree on: Welfonder and five professionals — two engineers, two appraisers and a contractor — met with Whittall in the morning to walk the site.

Manfred Welfonder

Whittall said the consultants told him the buildings cannot be saved. When he asked one consultant whether the buildings should be razed, Whittall said his answer was, “Oh yeah.” Welfonder said his consultants have not made any decisions.

Whittall wrote in an email to town staff that contractors told him that the buildings should be razed. Welfonder disagreed. “From an engineering standpoint, it can be done,” Welfonder said of repairing the beachfront units. “An engineer says everything can be repaired.” John McCall, an engineer with McCall and Young Engineering, was on-site. The Lakewood Ranch-based engineer said anything can be repaired from an engineering standpoint, but do the costs support the outcome? “I didn’t really see a final position,” McCall said.

BRET HAUFF STAFF WRITER

Documents are being drafted to establish a new condominium association on a Longboat Key property that already has one: the former site of the Colony Beach & Tennis Resort, the developer says. Unicorp National Developments President Chuck Whittall, in an email sent May 3, discussed the status of the St. Regis Hotel & Residences development project. Whittall wrote that he’s met with architects and landscapers to design the size of the hotel and condo rooms, the look of the resort’s common spaces and the appearance of the landscape and hardscape at the entrance of the development project. The Orlando-based developer said he has also met with lawyers drafting documents to establish a new condominium association to be managed by Marriott, the parent company to the St. Regis brand. Whittall expressed optimism about the three legal fronts he’s battling: The termination of the Colony Beach and Tennis Association, an appeal of the town’s approval of a site plan for the project and a partition lawsuit to gain ownership of the remaining property not controlled by the association. The lawsuit to terminate the condominium association has been disputed by at least nine of more than 200 defendants, most of whom challenge the legal action with claims that Unicorp does not have approval from unit owners to dissolve the condo federation. The developer has also filed a motion to intervene in the appeal of the town’s decision to approve the development. That intervention, if granted, would give Unicorp standing in the matter, affording the developer the same rights as the town and Blake Fleetwood, an investor at the former Colony and condominium association member who appealed the approval of the St. Regis project.

DO NOT TAKE THIS LIGHTLY Selecting streetlights gives Longboat Key’s residents an opportunity to make a statement.

committee. You’ll never get complete agreement, and compromises often lead to mediocrity. But better that approach than leaving this important decision to utility and Town Hall technocrats. This is a once-in-50-years opportunity to enhance the physical image of the Key. And even though this decision hardly has the magnitude of, say, whether Longboat Key should be one county, pardon the pun, it’s a matter that should not be taken lightly.

T

his is another one of those decisions to which residents pay little attention until it’s too late: the design of streetlights. The Longboat Key Town Commission and town administration since January have been considering the town’s options as it prepares the conversion to underground utility lines. The matter of streetlight design should not end up as an afterthought. In reality, it’s a 40- to 50-year decision. It deserves careful thought and discussion. Indeed, this is an opportunity for the town and its residents to create a look that makes a statement about the character of Longboat Key. In that vein, 125 respondents of 159 polled by the Keep Longboat Special organization said they would prefer decorative-style lights throughout the town’s neighborhoods. But that’s only 125 of 6,800 residents. Perhaps this is a time for the town to organize a detailed educational display at Town Hall that shows options, benefits, advantages, disadvantages and costs. Perhaps erect a few models near Town Hall to give residents a real-life sense of how the streetlights look and function. Conduct educational workshops at Town Hall, or take a presentation directly to town organizations

and condominium and homeowners’ associations. After all that, consider a straw poll or straw election during the upcoming summer primaries or the November election to learn residents’ preferences. Give taxpayers the opportunity to contribute and have a say. The risk of this approach, of course, is the old saw of building a horse by

You have heard all of the ideas to improve traffic flow on Gulf of Mexico Drive. Make it four lanes; lower the speed limit; build roundabouts; widen the bike paths; make it a toll road; buy it from the state and put up gates at both ends; add center turn lanes the length of the Key. The latest repeat idea gaining traction is for more center turn lanes, perhaps the length of the Key. But resident Dr. Jim Whitman was right when he admonished commissioners not to be hasty. There are consequences to consider. As Whitman said, a center lane the length of the road would eliminate the passing of slow motorists. And such lanes could adversely affect residences abutting the road — moving road noise closer to their homes. Yes, there are places where more turns lanes would help. But watch out what you wish for.

Only one U.N. member has not had the right to choose its capital BY DAVID HARRIS

May 14 loomed large in 1948. It was the date, according to the secular calendar, when the modern state of Israel was born. It was a time of ecstasy. Nearly 19 centuries had passed since the last chance for Jewish sovereignty was destroyed, but the prayers for a return to the ancestral land — and to Jerusalem, the heartbeat of the Jewish people — had never stopped through all the years of wandering, exile and persecution. Fast forward 70 years to May 14, 2018. This day will be remembered, above all, for another celebration — the transfer of the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to its rightful place in Jerusalem. I am in Israel’s capital city to join in the festivities and express appreciation, on behalf of the nonpartisan American Jewish Committee (AJC), to the Trump administration for its bold decision. It shouldn’t have had to be so bold. Every country ought to have the right to choose its own capital. But that basic political rule applies to each nation on earth, save one. Think about it. The other 192 U.N. member states pick the site for their capital, and it’s no one else’s business. No doubt, diplomats assigned to Australia would prefer to be situated in Melbourne or Sydney, but the political choice was Canberra. Nor did anyone utter a peep when Germany, following reunification, moved its capital from Bonn to Berlin, compelling governments around the world to spend a fortune to find new premises in Berlin. The same goes for Kazakhstan, which decided to move its capital from Almaty to Astana in 1998, again disrupting the lives of every country that

had a diplomatic post in the Central Asian nation … But Israel, and Israel alone, has found itself in the unique position of having its self-declared capital in Jerusalem, while other nations insist it’s in Tel Aviv, where they locate their embassies and residences. Why? Well, we’re told, it’s because the original U.N. resolution recommending a two-state solution, adopted in November 1947, designated Jerusalem as a corpus separatum, or a city with no sovereign affiliation to the proposed Arab and Jewish states. But the Arab world rejected the resolution in its entirety and declared war on Israel. Fortunately, Israel, though heavily outgunned and outmanned, prevailed. The western part of Jerusalem came under Israeli control. The offices of the president and prime minister, the Knesset, the Supreme Court and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs were all established there. For nearly seven decades, we have witnessed the anomaly of world leaders, whose countries reject Jerusalem as the capital, traveling precisely to that city to meet with Israeli presidents and prime ministers, to see Knesset members and to hold dialogues in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. How patently absurd! We have also been treated to the assertion that Jerusalem’s status should not be determined until there is a final peace agreement. But that gives the Palestinians veto power over the process, even as they have rejected one proposal after another, including those that would have essentially divided Jerusalem into two parts. Why should Israel’s capital be spurned by the international community ad infinitum because the

Palestinian leadership refuses to make a deal? In the case of the U.S., the situation was a bit different. The rhetoric was often right, and there was even congressional legislation (Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995) to back it up, but the results never matched the words … In September 2016, Donald Trump pledged to move the American Embassy to Jerusalem. Some observers understandably thought he was simply parroting his predecessors by making a campaign promise he had no intention of fulfilling. But he meant what he said, which is why we all gathered in Jerusalem to mark this historic occasion, to be followed two days later, it should be noted, by the Guatemalan decision to do the same. In today’s hyperpartisan world, many who oppose the president on other issues are unlikely to give him any credit for this move. But we remain fiercely nonpartisan and call them as we see them. President Trump, as he said, simply recognized reality. Jerusalem is Israel’s capital. Period. Does this move preclude a peace deal with the Palestinians? Absolutely not. In fact, perhaps in the long haul it accelerates the chances by signaling to their leadership that they don’t necessarily have the continued luxury of avoiding the peace table and rejecting one peace deal after another. And does it prevent the possibility of a Palestinian state that includes part of Jerusalem within its borders, allowing the Palestinians to declare their own capital? Again, absolutely not. May 14, 2018, is a special day in the life of Israel. And it’s a proud day to be an American friend of Israel. David Harris is CEO of the American Jewish Committee.

“Does this move preclude a peace deal with the Palestinians? Absolutely not. In fact, perhaps in the long haul it accelerates the chances …” — DAVID HARRIS

Survey: SCAT cancellation would impede workers A proposed cancellation of SCAT Route 18 would impact at least Longboat 13 businesses, according to a survey conducted by the Longboat Key Chamber of Commerce.

STAFF WRITER

Almost 100 island employees would need a new ride to and from work each day if Sarasota County Area Transit shuts down Route 18 between Longboat Key and Downtown Sarasota, according to a recent survey by the Longboat Key Chamber of Commerce. Of the 57 responses to the survey, 13 businesses on Longboat Key said their employees would be affected by a stop in SCAT service. That halt in transit has been proposed by Sarasota County as a means of reducing a burden on its strapped general fund. Chamber of Commerce President Gail Loefgren said she was surprised by how many employees could be affected by a change on this route, which connects Bay Isles with the SCAT terminal at First Street and Orange Avenue in downtown Sarasota. “We’re not happy with it,” Loefgren said of the proposed change. “It will affect the business com-

munity, it will affect how people get to work.” Of all the businesses that responded saying their employees would be affected, The Resort at Longboat Key Club would be most impacted: At least 50 of its employees would lose access to work if Route 18 is canceled, according to the survey. Jeff Mayers, general manager at the Resort at Longboat Key Club, said if the route is canceled, it would affect the Resort’s ability to retain workers and attract new employees. Many of the resort’s staff live in Sarasota, Mayers said. “It makes it much more difficult for our employees to get here to the Key, to come to work on a daily basis,” Mayers said of a potential loss of SCAT service. “In a very competitive job market, having modified service could present some major problems.” And although the bus serves half the island, Loefgren said canceling the route would also impact employers in Manatee County because some of their

employees transfer from SCAT to an on-demand transportation service provided by the Manatee County Area Transit.

MCAT changed its general-service bus route to an on-demand service in 2016. The SCAT proposal is part of Sarasota County’s larger goal to reduce its general fund by $5.4 million. Route 18, which averages 62 riders on 14 round trips each day, costs the county about $140,000 annually to operate. The proposed cut would take effect for fiscal year 2019, which starts Oct. 1. Two other SCAT routes are similarly proposed for elimination. “We’re not looking at ways to remove transit,” County Administrator Jonathan Lewis said at a March 23 County Commission meeting. “But how do we make it better than it is now, and hopefully less dependent on the general fund?” The answer is still up in the air. SCAT Interim Director Rob Lewis said there are “lots of ideas on the table,” and the county and town are working together to develop some kind of solution. But canceling the route may

not be the final outcome of this decision by the County Commission: The proposed halt of Route 18 must first undergo an equity analysis to determine how a service change would impact the communities it serves. That independent survey, which requires input from public hearings and final approval by the County Commission, could take months to complete. If all is approved, the route could stop service by August 2019. Before that happens, the Chamber of Commerce is hosting a meeting June 5 for members of the business community to meet with SCAT officials to discuss alternatives to canceling the route. Loefgren said she hopes this meeting will produce simple solutions to the complex problem of transportation. “They must come up with some simple solution to get people here and not make it complicated,” Loefgren said. “It’s got to be easy for people to navigate.”

NEWS BRIEFS Wells Fargo volunteers work to plant 227 native plants around Save Our Seabirds.

Save Our Seabirds gets hands dirty for Earth Day

I

n honor of Earth Day, Save Our Seabirds went on a mission to cultivate land for 227 native plants on its property. On April 21, the day before Earth Day, volunteers from Wells Fargo grabbed shovels and gloves and took to the dirt around Save Our Seabirds to plant the new species. Earlier in the week, the organization received a grant from the Longboat Key Garden Club, which allowed this project to happen. CEO David Pilston said following Hurricane Irma, some plants were damaged, including the large tree that sat in the entrance of the bird sanctuary. So, the tree and non-native plants were replaced with palm trees and native plants. Laurel Schiller, owner and manager of Florida Native Plants Nursery, was on hand to advise about the plants. She said the native plants are fruit and seeds for the birds. “The wild birds recognize and roost in them and feed in them,” she said.

Expert on opioid crisis addresses Kiwanis Club The work of the Florida Center for Early Childhood, helping children whose families have been swept up in the state’s opioid crisis, will be front and center on Thursday, May 17, at the Longboat Key Kiwanis Club’s monthly luncheon meeting. According to figures from 2016, Manatee County had the highest rate of opioid-related deaths in the state, and Sarasota County ranked 16th of Florida’s 67 counties. In 2017, 247 opioid overdoses were investigated in Sarasota County alone. Among the discussion points for the luncheon include local statistics, the effects of the opioid crisis on children in the Manatee and Sarasota areas and the work to mitigate the problems. A question and answer session with Dr. Kristie Skoglund, vice president of Clinical Services at the Florida Center, will follow. The event, which begins at 11:45 a.m. at the Portofino Restaurant and Grill, 2600 Harbourside Drive, is open to the public. Lunch is $24, which includes tip. RSVP to club president Steve Branham at jsalor@aol.com

Warren Roberts, who died May 8, was a distinguished professor at the University at Albany, SUNY before becoming a beach fixture. File photo

Warren Roberts, 85, was a distinguished professor at the University at Albany, SUNY, an author and avid beach walker.

Warren Roberts remembered for his enthusiastic teachings COMMUNITY EDITOR

W

arren Roberts had a way of seeing the potential in people. While his wife, Anne, was prepared to be a stay-at-home mother for their four children, Roberts insisted she was too smart. His son James can recount story after story of his father’s students saying they were so close to dropping out or felt they were wandering aimlessly until they landed in one of Roberts’ classes. “He changed their lives, and he changed their lives by helping them develop critical skills and helping to give them the ability to organize their thoughts,” James

Roberts said. Roberts died May 8, on his 85th birthday, when he was hit by two cars on Gulf of Mexico Drive. “I think [he had] enthusiasm and making things come alive,” Anne Roberts said. “People would say to me, ‘I’ve walked down this street all my life, and I never noticed things until Warren pointed them out to me.’” Perhaps best known locally as an avid beach walker each morning, Roberts led a distinguished career as a professor at the University at Albany, State University of New York, before retiring to Longboat Key. Roberts began his teaching career in 1963. He was a professor there until his retirement in 2013.

“He was very supportive,” William Hedberg, senior vice provost and associate vice president for academic affairs at the University at Albany, SUNY, said. “I think he was well-known on the campus for being interested in what other faculty were doing. He was very supportive of their efforts. He offered encouragement, particularly to the junior faculty to try and cheer them on and show an interest in their work.” In 1984, Roberts was promoted as one of the first distinguished teaching professors, one of the highest ranks given at SUNY, Hedberg said. Hedberg called him a legend. “Some professors can be a bit tedious in their lectures,” Michael

Huber, a former student of Roberts’ said in an email. “Warren possessed an uncanny ability to make absolutely stunning connections between history and art and current events and poetry and architecture. My classmates often talked about how special he was. I’ve never met anyone like him.” Roberts’ neighbor, Alan Ackerman, said the two often got together to talk about history. One time, Ackerman’s men’s breakfast club at Longboat Island Chapel needed a speaker, so he approached Roberts, and he agreed. He just wanted to know what topic would be interesting to the group. He decided to speak about Napoleon. He talked for 20 min-

THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2018

utes, which was the normal time for a speaker, but when he said he was finished, the group encouraged him to continue. Ackerman said everyone was glued to their chairs listening. “He could talk any phase of anything that has happened since the world began keeping records,” Ackerman said. When Roberts wasn’t writing or reading, he was often found outdoors, as he had been in Albany, when he would walk around campus, play basketball with students or tennis with colleagues. After his retirement, Roberts didn’t slow down, despite a bike crash in 2013 and a stroke in 2016. Roberts was the author of six books and was working on another about the history of Vienna and its music. He continued his daily exercise but in different ways. For four years, Roberts would play fetch with Grace “Sasha” Haskard’s yellow Labrador retriever, Stardog, daily at 3 p.m. “He had a brilliant mind, and he was aware of the changes needed in the world,” Haskard said. He started each day with a walk on the beach and became a fixture for fellow beach walkers. Whether they had known Roberts for years, like Naima White, or just a few months, like Roey Gangloff, Roberts’ presence on the beach was a high point for many. “I’m sure he was just the light of a lot of people’s lives,” Gangloff said. Whether it was raining and cloudy or blue skies with a shining sun, Roberts always told fellow beach walkers it was “a beautiful day for a walk.” “He was the anchor,” White said. “Steady as the tide. [Is the tide] going to be high or low? Warren will be there.” Roberts is survived by his wife, Anne; four children Carissa, James, Thomas and Peter; and six grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to Southeastern Guide Dogs at guidedogs.org/donate or the Silverstein Institute by calling 888-418-9200.

fter more than 30 years of organizing tennis matches for his friends, Robert Ruff’s friends paid him back. On May 9, about 40 of his tennis friends gathered after their 10:30 a.m. matches to celebrate Ruff’s 90th birthday. The party was supposed to be a surprise, and though the group wasn’t able to keep it secret, Ruff said he was still surprised at how many people came to celebrate with him. “It’s a great group of guys,” Ruff said. “Many of

them have been with me for a long time.” Ruff’s son-in-law and daughters, one of whom he shares a birthday with, came to join the party that took place on the upper deck of The Resort at Longboat Key Club’s Tennis Gardens. Bob Coyne, who helped organize the event, called Ruff one of “the finest gentlemen most of us have met,” before presenting him with a golden racket. — KATIE JOHNS

Robert Ruff was given this golden racket in honor of his 90th birthday.

Think You Know Everything About Your Medications?

Max Freeman catches a wave during a 2017 Sarasota County camp.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 22

SARASOTA COUNTY PARKS, RECREATION AND NATIONAL RESOURCES CAMPS

Nine Things Your Pharmacist Does NOT Want You Doing By Kathleen Price, RN, Florida Blue Registered Nurse

3. Don’t skip doses. Take your medication as prescribed or it may not work. Some medications have to build up in your body before they take effect, and others need to be taken at the same time every day. 4. Don’t split pills unless your doctor or pharmacist has told you to. Some medications are less effective if you split them. Certain medications have special coatings that help them work in your body longer. If you break the coating, they may not work as they’re supposed to. 5. Don’t wait until you’re out to get refills. Make sure to get your refills before your medications run out so you won’t miss a dose. You may consider signing up for mail order. It won’t cost extra to have them delivered to your home, unless you ask for urgent delivery.

SKIM, SURF AND PADDLE CAMP All skill levels are invited to join this camp at Lido Beach that consists of skim, surf and stand-up paddle board instruction, demonstration and practice. Campers also will participate in beach activities and learn basic ocean knowledge. Ages: 7-15 When: 8 a.m. to noon on May 29 to June 1, June 18-22 and Aug. 6-10. Cost: $180 for four days and $225 for five days Contact: scgov.net/parks

7. Don’t forget to ask for 90day refills. Switching from a 30-day supply to a 90-day supply can make it easier to never miss a dose and will often save you money. 8. Don’t keep any medications in your car (including EpiPens and inhalers). Heat and frost can change or inactivate your medications. If you need to carry medications for emergencies, carry them with you in a purse or bag.

MARINE EXPLORERS AND WATERMAN’S CAMP As campers learn water safety, they will explore barrier island marine environments by kayaking, snorkeling, swimming and

9. Don’t leave medications in the reach of children or pets. Be especially careful what you put in the trash. Your pets could get into your trash and ingest medicine. To find an authorized disposal site for medicine, call the DEA Office of Diversion Control’s Registration Call Center at 1-800-882-9539. Kathleen Price is a registered nurse at the Florida Blue Center in Sarasota at UTC where she teaches free health and wellness classes that are open to the public in addition to providing health coaching and assessments.

SURFIT KIDS SUMMER CAMP Campers will learn all about stand-up paddleboarding, surfing, swimming and ocean safety at Lido Beach. All classes are led by certified lifeguards. Ages: 6-14 When: 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on June 25-29, July 2-6, July 9-13 and July 16-20. A mangrove tunnels tour will take place at Ted Sperling Nature Park from July 23-27. Cost: $215 for half-day camp and $300 for extended day option Contact: 952-8245

2. Don’t forget to tell your doctor and pharmacist what vitamins and over-the-counter drugs you take. Vitamins and common over-the-counter drugs like ibuprofen can affect your body’s systems and how well your body absorbs your medication.

6. Don’t forget to ask your pharmacist questions. Your pharmacist is an expert on medications and how they interact with each other. Take advantage of their expertise and ask any questions you have about your drugs.

attempting to stand-up paddle. Experienced guides will lead campers on these adventures on kid-sized equipment. Ages: 8-15 When: 9 a.m. to noon on May 29 to June 1, June 4-8, June 11-15, July 23-27 and July 30 to Aug. 3 at Ted Sperling Park; and June 1822, June 25-29, July 2-6 and July 16-20 at Ken Thompson Park. Cost: $180 for four days and $220 for five days Contact: scgov.net/parks

1. Don’t share your medications. You may think you are helping out a friend when you lend your medications to another in need, but you could be risking your own life and theirs. Your medications are prescribed to you and may not be appropriate for someone else. Instead, help them find resources to get the meds they need by calling 211.
