+ Chapel lends a helping hand in Haiti Craig Holliday, Bob Million, Sarah Schlesinger, Fred Teeter, Maria Wattleworth and the Rev. Kathi Wiggins, of Siesta Key Chapel, left Saturday, June 23, for a weeklong mission trip to Institution Univers, in Ouanaminthe, Haiti. The group departed from Miami with 600 pounds of supplies — not counting their personal items that they planned to carry on the plane. This is the chapel’s sixth mission to Institution Univers. The group will be supplying critical medical, education and recreational supplies, as well as giving 285 Haitian children a chance to attend a week of summer camp.

Tropical Storm Debby left little of America’s No. 1 Beach exposed Monday, June 24 as the surf stretched more than 100 feet north of Siesta Key Beach lifeguard stands.

Debby dominates Key Collateral bands of rain from tropical storm Debby turned Siesta Key streets into canals, flooded the beach and delayed bridge construction. The award-winning sands of Siesta Key Beach were barely visible Monday, June 25, after Tropical Storm Debby pummeled the island over the weekend. Seawater stretched to the sand dunes separating the parking lot from the beach, and part of Beach Road was covered with four feet of water, blocking Siesta Beach’s main access. Lifeguards raised red flags barring people from entering the Gulf of Mexico for the first three days of the week.

And this was all caused by a tropical storm that made landfall on an island 300 miles north of Siesta, giving residents only a taste of the damage that a Category 2 hurricane would cause, according to Sarasota County Emergency Management Chief Ed McCrane. The biggest impact of Tropical Storm Debby was the flooding, which prompted the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office to

Beach Road drainage fix faces delay The $2.8 million improvement project that will replace an outdated system was delayed after changes were made to the design. Tropical Storm Debby caused significant flooding on Siesta Key throughout the beginning of the week and even forced the closure of Beach Road Monday

and Tuesday. But plans to improve stormwater drainage on that road could be further delayed due to blueprint changes. Sarasota County Commis-

sioner Nora Patterson told the Pelican Press before the Sarasota County Commission’s June 26 regular meeting that the expected July 7 start date of the $2.8

million Beach Road drainageimprovement project will likely be delayed. The location of a proposed retention pond was altered, which required subsequent permit changes from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

‘do you srq?’

THURSDAY, June 28, 2012

By Kurt Schultheis | City Editor

Airport unveils marketing campaign Sarasota-Bradenton International’s goal is to reduce ‘leakage’ 3.8% annually over the next five years. Do You SRQ? If you don’t, Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport President Fred Piccolo is determined to make sure that you — and the company you work for — start. And at the very least, airport officials want you to start price checking local airfares before automatically booking a flight at Tampa International Airport or other competing airports. Wednesday, June 27, at the Powel Crosley Mansion across the street from the airport, Piccolo officially released the “Do You SRQ?” marketing campaign and initiatives for reducing what the airport industry terms as “leakage” to other airports.

Airport statistics show more than 1 million local passengers leak to Tampa International Airport; a quarter-million passengers leak to Southwest International Airport, in Fort Myers, and a little more than 125,000 people leak to Orlando International Airport — every year. Piccolo hopes that more than 1,000 local businesses and nonprofit companies sign a pledge to look for airfares, locally, before booking flights with other airports. “What’s hurt our community and our airport is the level of competition and the willingness of people to go to other airports,” Piccolo said. “We’ve become very


for the project, $2.4 million of which is earmarked for construction costs, according to the Sarasota County preliminary budget for the 2013 fiscal year. Public works is expected to spend $18,000 in 2014 and 2015 to monitor water quality of affected areas and $3,200 the following two years on general operations. The design and planning portion of the project began in 2007. “The (stormwater runoff ) situation has existed for years,” Patterson said in an email exchange with a concerned Siesta resident, “although this is the worst I have seen.”

and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, she said Sarasota County deputies closed nearly one mile of Beach Road Monday, June 25 due to flooding, and the county water reclamation facility on Siesta overflowed the same day. “We have several lift stations on Siesta Key without power ... and staff is responding to the alarms,” wrote Director of Environmental Utilities Theresa Connor in an email to County Administrator Randall Reid. The county has appropriated all of the funding required

competitive and want people to realize that.” Piccolo was quick to point out the airport isn’t in dire straits and has recovered 95% of the business it was predicted to lose when Southwest Airlines officially pulls its local AirTran flights Aug. 12. The airport, which has $28 million in reserves, $100 million in fixed assets and is on schedule to pay off all of its remaining $9 million debt in 2014, has attracted the likes of JetBlue and Delta Airlines, for service to LaGuardia International Airport, and United Airlines, which will begin offering flights to Chicago in November. Piccolo is hopeful the addition of United will eventually lead to coveted Mid-

west stops in Indianapolis and Milwaukee. Adding a non-stop flight to Pittsburgh and restoring service to Baltimore is also on Piccolo’s wish list, as well as acquiring more non-stop flights. “History has shown the community favors its local airport even more when we offer nonstop flights,” Piccolo said. The airport is spending $130,000 of its $225,000 marketing budget on the new campaign. A study by the Florida Department of Transportation, Piccolo said, revealed that the airport

has close to a $1-billion-a-year economic impact for the region “without taking a penny out of taxpayers’ pockets.” “But we are leaking $1.5 million ($4.5 million in local sales tax revenues) each year to other airports,” Piccolo said. “That leakage costs local jobs, local business revenue, shifts millions in taxes away and results in fewer local flights.” “We believe it’s time to say enough is enough,” said Piccolo, who explained the airport’s goal is to reduce leakage 3.8% annually over the next five years. Piccolo said he understands there are some gaps in service with which SRQ can’t compete. Until those gaps are filled, he urges residents to only use carriers at competitor airports that also use SRQ.

About 25 construction and lawn maintenance firm representatives follow Sarasota County Business Operations General Manager Tom Maroney during a tour of Siesta Key Village.

Vendors gather for primer on Village maintenance Eleven of 16 lawn-maintenance firms remained potential bidders for an annual contract for the upkeep of Siesta Key Village after a five-hour tour and forum. Siesta Key Village inched closer to a “resort-style environment” as Sarasota County General Manager of Business Operations Tom Maroney led vendors interested in undertaking Village maintenance Thursday, June 21, on a one-hour tour of the territory. There were just fewer than 25 vendor representatives who attended the tour, which was required if a firm wants to bid on the one-year contract to perform Village maintenance. Siesta Key Village Association President Russell Matthes said he expected to generate more interest. Vendors were encouraged to ask questions during the zigzagging trek through the Village. The current cost of annual maintenance estimated by Sarasota County is $200,000, said Sarasota County Traffic Engineering staff member Ryan Montague during a forum at the Sarasota County Commission chambers immediately following the tour. There were 11 vendor repre-

Mark Smith, who oversees Siesta Key Village upkeep as chairman of the Siesta Key Village Maintenance Corp., is seeking a vendor to take over maintenance. sentatives left at the end of the forum, which lasted until noon. James Scheidel, the procurement analyst handling the Siesta Village maintenance contract, fielded questions, which were then written up and attached as an addendum to the request for proposal. The contract includes main-

tenance of various types, from pressure washing sidewalks and bike racks to replacing coconut trees after a freeze. The 11 qualified vendors have until 2 p.m. July 11 to submit their bids. The vendor with the lowest bid will be chosen for the contract and sent blueprints of the area’s irrigation system.

Sarasota County Schools Superintendant Lori White, at a June 19 work session, said the State Board of Education Charter Review Panel upheld the Governing Board of the Sarasota County School District’s rejection of a charter school application. Board members responded with cheers and applause, but there will be another hearing with the Florida Department of Education July 17, for a final determination on the school’s appeal. Sarasota County Schools Director of Communications Gary Leatherman said the board is well aware of the Department of Education’s positive stance on charter schools. Joe Savage, co-owner of Threefold Waldorf Inc., proposed Threefold Charter School last year. The school would have operated with the Waldorf theory of education, which emphasizes imagination and creativity in learning. But School Board members said the school’s proposed coursework didn’t meet state standards and criticized its reading program. (See sidebar.) Art Hardy, attorney for Sarasota schools, represented the district during the appeal hearing. “It’s just a step along the way,” Hardy said. He and Savage will have five minutes to present their cases at a July 17 meeting of the Department of Education. “For me (the meeting) is pointless because there is no hope.” Savage said the board was unclear on the recommendations it made after the initial rejection and uncooperative throughout the charter application process. “The discussions with the school board were hostile from the beginning,” he said. But Hardy said the board was specific regarding the rejection,


The Governing Board of the Sarasota County School District rejected the charter school application of Threefold Charter School Oct. 14, 2011, issuing the following statement: The Charter School Review Committee has significant concerns regarding the Threefold Charter School application. Areas of major concern center on the lack of a viable reading program, lack of provision for the state-required reading block, the applicant’s ability to appropriately staff the school with certified teachers, lack of a viable ESE and ESOL plan, a questionable loan program proposal from parents, lack of a facilities plan and an insufficient budget proposal. noting that is why it won the appeal. “We had our act together,” White said at the work session, “and, frankly, I don’t think Mr. Savage represented himself very well (at the hearing).” However, School Board member Carol Todd noted that being too specific about the reason for a charter school application rejection could become troublesome. “There is a difference between having all our ducks in order and writing their application for them,” Todd said. Savage had entertained the idea of trying to start a charter school in another district, but has no current plans to file another application. “I don’t really see this one being overturned,” White said. “But you can never really tell.”

Gulf Gate Library receives commission’s blessing Commissioners say the design for the new Gulf Gate Library could use some shade but gave the project the go-ahead. If there’s one thing Sarasota County Commissioner Jon Thaxton will be remembered for after he vacates his District 5 seat to run for Supervisor of Elections, it’s his attention to detail. That was on display Tuesday, June 26, when Sarasota County Library System Director Sarabeth Kalajian asked the commission for a consensus on the design chosen for Gulf Gate Library. He pointed out that the burntorange color picked for some of the paint seemed different and identified plant species in the drawings. Harvard Jolly Executive Vice President Ward Friszolowski said they used a different printer for these renderings, which drew chuckles from attendees. Good spirits continued as

Project timeline October 2007 — Design process started January 2013 — Final design selected February 2013 — Construction starts April 2014 — Construction complete May 2014 — Grand opening Sarasota County commissioners voted unanimously for Sarasota County Public Works to move forward with the library project after seeing the initial design concept. Kalajian and representatives from Harvard Jolly Inc., the architecture firm overseeing the

design, took questions from commissioners regarding renderings of the new Gulf Gate Library. Commissioner Nora Patterson had some concerns about the lack of shady areas on the exterior and the potential costs of maintaining a structure with such a modern design. “This is Florida, and it’s hot,” she said. But commissioners came to a consensus in support of the project renderings and applauded the public involvement stakeholders have fostered. There will be a public meeting Aug. 9, to reveal interior fixtures and finishes, Kalajian said. Sarasota County will decide on a final design in January 2013 with construction starting the following month. A grand opening is

Renderings for the new Gulf Gate Library were revealed to the public May 24 at an open house at St. Andrew United Church of Christ. scheduled for May 2014. Patterson questioned Kalajian about the timeline, asking if there was any chance that they could expedite the project. “One of the issues, of course, is that (Gulf Gate Library) is so heavily used that a temporary facility, no matter how well done, is

still (not going to be the same),” she said. “May 2013 sounds great but earlier is better.” The county already has a little more than $3 million appropriated for the $10 million project and the remaining amount earmarked in the 2013 fiscal year budget.

+ County repeals incentive resolution The Sarasota County Commission Tuesday, June 26, voted unanimously to repeal and replace a 2010 resolution related to economic incentives provided for businesses that relocate to the county. Resolution No. 2010-199, which established a fund to provide grants to firms moving to the area and tied guidelines for relocation tax refunds to disbursement of grants. Proponents of the new resolution said there should be specific guidelines for those receiving grants and those receiving tax breaks, which the new resolution established. Mark Huey, president and CEO of the Economic Development Corp. of Sarasota County, supported the legislation with recommendations from his organization, and other area nonprofits guided the process, as well. “I’m very proud that we got to this point in such a collaborative way,” said Commission Chairwoman Christine Robinson.

Commissioner Nora Patterson motioned to delay the approval until July 11, when Arts and Cultural Alliance Executive Director Jim Shirley will return with more information about qualified South County organizations.

Reid seeks honest procurement director

Sarasota County Administrator Randall Reid backed his zero-tolerance ethics policy with Procurement Official Mark Thiele’s resignation. Now he hopes to fill the position before August.

Sarasota County Administrator Randall Reid enjoys his job. That’s good for him, because overseeing 2,000 employees and hundreds of government facilities leaves little time to think of anything else. In fact, Reid finds it difficult to say what he does for leisure. “I can make up some pretty goodsounding answers,” he said, “but I’m probably thinking about work.” That dedication is a good thing for Sarasota Randall County, as well. In the middle of Reid preparing his first county budget, Sarasota County Procurement Official Mark Thiele resigned and Tropical Storm Debby forced Reid to declare a local state of emergency. That’s some half-year celebration for the 57-year-old Ohio native, who left the same position in Alachua County after 12 years, to take over a county reeling from a procurement scandal.

“Sarasota is a premier county,” Reid said. “And, one of my goals coming in was to remind people we’re a premier county.” That began with an ethical overhaul of the organization in which Reid sent government staff a two-page set of guidelines to ethical work habits and procedures. The main points: honesty and transparency are sacred. “We want to try to Reid excel in terms of giving good customer service,” Reid explained. “And lying isn’t part of good customer service.” The ethical focus comes from Reid’s background as a lifelong Boy Scout and Rotary Club member, he said. But, the 2011 procurement scandal that led to one criminal conviction and 10 lost government jobs motivated his early efforts to change the culture of the county government. (See

sidebar.) An ethics investigation regarding Thiele’s handling of a procurement project, and his subsequent resignation, dented that goal. However, the aftermath is muted compared with last year’s procurement issue, signifying that the organizational changes ushered in under Reid caught the disparity before any serious monetary or legal damage occurred. Most employees welcomed Reid’s adjustments, he said, but change always creates some backlash. “You can have a quick stimulus and people respond,” he said. “But, for cultural change, it’s the slow dripping water torture of ‘I’m not going to stop this until there’s resolution.’” Getting to know the 2,000 employees he oversees was another hurdle Reid faced after he was hired. “I respect small-business people, but this isn’t a small business,” he said. He tours county

Filling positions

facilities and meets employees along the way, but with the $834 million budget approval looming at the end of summer, he’s pared that aspect of his schedule. “(Working through) the budgeting functions is easy, because I’ve been doing it for 37 years,” Reid said. “But the specific allocation (of funds) and what were doing here, in terms of programs, takes a lot of time.” In February, Reid had yet to decide the fate of five interim directors — nearly half of the 13 directors on his staff. After six months at his position, Reid told the Pelican Press he would recommend the appointment of four of those interim directors for permanent positions. “We’ve already gone over the budgeting (for permanent appointments), and it will be on the upcoming agenda,” he explained. (See sidebar.) But the search will continue for a new procurement official and a deputy county administrator, because Interim Deputy County Administrator Bill Little is expected to return to his position with Health and Human Services this fall. Reid said he would prefer to personally know the candidate for the procurement official position, a search he hopes to finish by the end of July. The county is also seeking a director of communication and civic engagement. Besides tweaking the 2013 fiscal year budget during County

Scouts’ Honor

Sarasota County Administrator Randall Reid taps into his history as a Boy Scout in his decision-making, as well as, the ethical standards he set for county workers. He rattled off, with gusto, the 12 values of Scout Law in an interview with the Pelican Press: from trustworthy to reverent. And having a Scout at the head of a county government during hurricane season means preparedness is the mantra this summer. “It was a kids’ game that I carried on through adulthood,” he said.

Commission meetings during the summer, Reid is also focused on land-use issues, such as countyowned property and transportation-friendly development. Bus rapid transit, commonly referred to as BRT, is a development strategy aimed at planning express Sarasota County Area Transit bus routes to fit future development. “It’s really economic development and land use,” he said. “It’s not just transporting people.” Technology is another item on Reid’s six-month agenda. He authorized a stipend for county government workers to bring their personal smart phones to work. Phones with email capability encourage communication, Reid said. “It’s not just writing memos — it’s a job where I can talk to somebody about how to raise someone’s self esteem or build a new downtown,” Reid said. “It’s never boring.”

Beth Duda and Emma Wilbur



Number of weeks of camp



THURSDAY, June 28, 2012


Every year during camp, Beth Duda makes her grandmother Dorothy’s “secret” meatball recipe.

{ CAMPER SPOTLIGHT } We interviewed Kaila Cohen, who gave The Observer some insight into her latest written work. What’s happening at camp? At camp this week, it’s our show week. Rumor has it you wrote your own piece to perform. It’s about seeing how a person is, on the inside and not on the outside.

Campers enjoy making the meatballs.

How long did it take? It took just one day, but I had a lot of help. Who helped you? Our wonderful director of education, Beth. I’ve just been learning a lot about that in school, and I had to get it down, somehow. Where do you go to school? Temple Beth Sholom.

Prior to the big fireworks display, you don’t want to miss this!

What’s your favorite thing about camp? My favorite thing about coming here … I just like having fun. It’s like my home. I like being here.

Mote Marine Laboratory: Take a Closer Look — The Gulf of Mexico As a young graduate student studying marine science in India, I first learned of Mote Marine Laboratory by reading scientific papers published by some of the lab’s greatest scientists. Genie Clark, Perry Gilbert, Charles Breder, Bill Tavolga and others enjoyed eminent reputations in their fields and had built an international reputation for the small lab, then located off Midnight Pass, on Siesta Key. In 1978, I was fortunate to be able to join Mote as a senior scientist and become its director and CEO in 1986. All told, I’ve called this region of paradise home for nearly 40 years, including 15 years as a Siesta Key homeowner with my wife, Linda, DR. KUMAR raising our three MAHADEVAN sons, Andrew, Alex and Chad. (Prior to that, we spent more than 10 summers at Seaplace, on Longboat Key) So, when The Observer’s editors recently asked me to begin writing a regular column to talk about the lab’s activities and our marine environment, I was more than happy to oblige — there’s a lot to talk about! For all of us who live on our barrier islands and for the thousands of guests who visit each year, the Gulf of Mexico is key to our way of life. In fact, many of us choose to live here because of the Gulf and the lifestyle it affords. As a scientist and a local resident, I’ve seen many changes during my tenure here. Some of the changes have been controversial — like the closing of Midnight Pass; others — like public support for lighting ordinances that protect nesting sea turtles and better rules governing our use of natural resources — have been good for our marine environment and its animal residents. Siesta Key was even named the country’s No. 1 beach last year! But other events have highlighted places where we can — and must — improve. The Deepwater Horizon explosion and ensuing disastrous oil spill in 2010, which catapulted the Gulf of Mexico into the American public’s consciousness, marked an area in need of improvement. Although this is a sad — and ongoing — human tragedy and environmental disaster, I hope that it can also become a new rallying cry for our nation. A call, perhaps, for us to come together

Mote Marine Laboratory

Former first lady Laura Bush meets resident manatees Hugh and Buffett during her tour of the world-class research facilities of Mote Marine Laboratory on Jan. 11, 2011.
Foreground, from left: Joseph Gaspard III, Manatee Care, Training and Research Coordinator at Mote Marine Laboratory, Former first lady Laura Bush, and Dr. Kumar Mahadevan, Mote president and CEO. to urge new protections and innovative economic development measures for this vital body of water that is in all of our backyards and benefits our way of life. To this end, Mote has been leading the way to help our country re-envision the way we manage the Gulf of Mexico and all of its important resources. It’s a task we take seriously. The Gulf of Mexico is the most industrialized body of water in the world, supporting nationally prominent industries, commercial and recreational fisheries, cruise lines, shipping lanes and ports. It has the largest oil and natural-gas fields in the world, and recovery of proven deepwater petroleum reserves is just beginning. Overall, its contribution to our U.S. economy is more than $150 billion per annum. And, while residents in states thousands of miles away don’t necessarily know in detail the role that the Gulf plays in their lives, they certainly play a role in its health. More than 50% of the contiguous land area in the U.S. drains into the Mississippi River, which, in turn, drains into the Gulf — into our backyard. That’s why Mote has been leading efforts to bring stakeholders together to build consensus for new protected areas in the Gulf. We hosted the first meeting in 2008 and the second, called “Beyond the Horizon,” in 2011. Working in partnership with the Harte Research Institute, the University of South Florida College of Marine Sciences and

THE CASTAWAY by Jorge Blanco

the National Marine Sanctuaries Foundation, we were able to bring together representatives from scientific organizations, government, the oil industry, commercial and recreational fishing and other forms of onwater recreation to Sarasota to talk about the Gulf. The result was broad agreement about the need for comprehensive use and protection plans that take the Gulf’s economic and environmental connections into consideration. Why does management need to be comprehensive? The Gulf is physically, biologically and socially connected to the Caribbean Sea, the U.S. East Coast and the Atlantic Ocean by the Loop Current, the Florida Current and the Gulf Stream — and, of course, by a vital network of commerce that takes place within and among the region’s nations; and, of course, politically by three nations: Mexico, U.S. and Cuba. It also includes relics of shorelines and barrier islands. These shores and islands were once above sea level, but now lie deep beneath its surface. They provide critical structure and habitat for animal and plant species that the Gulf’s currents carry from one place to another. Protecting and managing just one area or one activity cannot take these physical and social connections into consideration. On June 8, World Oceans Day, the Beyond the Horizon Gulf of Mexico Executive Committee,

which I chair, released a new report detailing some critical areas that need to be addressed if we are to protect the Gulf even as we enjoy its fruits and the economic benefits it produces for our region, our state, our nation and even the world. (You can read the report at Former first lady Laura Bush spoke of her support for new protections for the Gulf of Mexico during the Summit on the State of the Gulf at the Harte Research Institute in 2011, and she has continued to speak about the issue since, including during her visit to Mote earlier this year. She and others — including the Beyond the Horizon Executive Committee — have suggested that we protect the Gulf’s sunken shorelines and islands and their connections to each other, by establishing a series of new marine sanctuaries in the Gulf. Using the sanctuary process would allow for public input on the protections we put in place, but, more importantly, it would allow us to manage the Gulf so that it can withstand and rebound from environmental changes — and even environmental disasters like the Deepwater Horizon explosion — while continuing to support our human economy and our own region’s way of life. Dr. Kumar Mahadevan, a Siesta Key resident, joined Mote Marine as senior scientist in 1978 and has been president and CEO since 1986.


THURSDAY, June 28, 2012



Sarasota County Administrator Randall Reid declared a local state of emergency, authorizing Emergency Management to use county funding and allowing the county to become eligible for state and federal dollars. Sarasota County Emergency Management Chief Ed McCrane oversaw the partially activated Emergency Operations Center and briefed Sarasota County commissioners on the storm during the June 26 regular meeting.

Siesta nests

As of June 23, 198 sea-turtle nests have been laid this season on Siesta Key. Turtle nests are able to withstand water as long as the eggs are not exposed, according to a news release from Mote Marine Laboratory. Catherine Luckner, president of the Siesta Key Association, had been monitoring a nest of snowy plovers that was expected to hatch Sunday. The nest was destroyed by the flooding.


Siesta streets ranged from soggy to soaked after Tropical Storm Debby’s prolonged stay in the Gulf of Mexico, causing some road closures and prompting Sarasota County to place road under water signs throughout the Key. Here are some of the roads Sarasota County reported flooded or closed June 26: Canal Road, Beach Road, Avenida Del Mare, Roberts Point Circle and Flamingo Avenue.

On Monday, cars drove down a flooded Beach Road, next to the current stormwater retention pond.

DEBBY / FROM 1A close June 25 a 0.7-mile stretch of Beach Road skirting Siesta Beach and issue warnings about several others. (See sidebar at left.) A Sarasota County Water Reclamation facility overflowed from the rain highlighting the nagging stormwater runoff issue that a $2.8 million project is designed to fix. Sarasota County Commissioner Nora Patterson, a Siesta resident, worked from home Monday because saltwater made her street inaccessible. And contractors were unable to reach the beach on south Siesta Key to work on Hyatt Siesta Key Beach Resort drainage pipes that were clogged because Midnight Pass Road was under water, Patterson said. The windy conditions caused work stoppages on the Siesta Key north bridge rehabilitation project, according to Florida Department of Transportation spokeswoman Jennifer Stafford.

The contractor working on the 120-day continuous work timeline stopped construction Sunday and Monday nights, and Stafford will report on the effect on the project’s timeline after a weekly meeting with the contractor. “Obviously, it’s time out of their schedule,” Stafford said. “It’s a compressed schedule already.” But the contractor, who gets a bonus incentive if work is complete by Oct. 16, will likely do what it takes to make up for lost time, she explained. The flooding was surprising, after the dry conditions the previous week, said County Commissioner Jon Thaxton, whose district experienced little structural flooding. “The drought actually helped,” he said. “What would be bad is if another storm came in after this.” Sarasota County Public Works will be sending out teams of workers to clear debris when flooding subsides, McCrane said.

snap, crackle and run By Nick Friedman | Community Editor

Runners light their fuses for the Second Annual Firecracker 5k The second Firecracker 5k and 1-Mile Fun Run on Siesta Key Beach might actually be the first. Despite a large turnout, last year’s inaugural run was called off at the last minute due to inclement weather. The idea for the event was born out of a need to diversify fundraising efforts for the Siesta Key Chamber of Commerce’s annual Fourth of July fireworks display. “In 2010, we came up about 20% short of our goal,” said Siesta Key Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Kevin Cooper. “We approached 2011 with the goal of diversifying the ways in which we raised money, in case one aspect of the fundraising didn’t go as well as planned.” The chamber partnered with the Manasota Track Club to get more of the community involved, and the inaugural run attracted approximately 250 registered participants. On the morning of the run, however, lightning caused the race organizers to cancel the event. “It was a pretty big disappointment for us,”

said Cooper. “We had put months of work into it, but the only thing that would’ve been more disappointing is if we had gone ahead with the run and someone had been injured.” Cooper and the rest of the organizers and participants are keeping their fingers crossed that Tropical Storm Debby won’t put a damper on this year’s run, as well. The event is scheduled for 7:15 a.m. Saturday, June 30, at Siesta Key Beach and, like last year, the proceeds from the run will go toward the chamber’s firework display, set for 9 p.m. Wednesday, July 4. Participants are invited to attend a packet pick-up party from 3 to 7 p.m. Friday, June 29, at the New Balance Store, 1872 Stickney Point Road. The party provides runners with an opportunity to finalize their registrations without having to show up for the 6:30 a.m. day-of-race registration. “Hopefully, nicer weather will prevail this year, and we’ll be able to put on this event that people can enjoy,” said Cooper. s s llow e pi sardine a e r f 2 n of se of ca ha & a h purc or set wit matt

11:12 a.m. — 5500 block of Contento Drive. Residential Burglary. A pool cleaner reported that there were two men in an unmarked vehicle detailing a boat behind one of his customers’ homes. When he returned for the next weekly pool cleaning, the sliding-glass door of the house was open, so he called police. The homeowner told an officer he was on vacation for two weeks and to lock up the house until he returns to assess the damage. Police left a note on the man’s refrigerator containing the case number with instructions to call the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office when he returns.


3:07 p.m. — 5200 block of Ocean Boulevard. Grand Theft. A Siesta Key Village restaurant employee said she suspects a former co-worker stole her laptop, which was last seen behind the bar where she works. The woman suspected was recently terminated for theft.

like father, like son By Nick Friedman | Community Editor

Father-and-son team up to capture life on Siesta Ryan and Shawn McLaughlin have teamed up to create a website that will showcase videos related to Siesta Key. Like the old adage says, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. In the case of father-son duo Shawn and Ryan McLoughlin, the saying rings true. Shawn, or “Siesta Shawn,� as he’s often called, is a Ringling College of Arts and Design graduate, whose paintings of beach life and murals on local establishments have earned him a solid reputation as an artist around the island throughout the past 30 years. His son, Ryan, is a web designer whose passion for art was spurred at a young age, when his father would take him and his brother to the beach while he painted.

It’s not surprising, then, that the two men are collaborating on a new project, called iSiestaKey. com, a website they hope will become a hub for all videos related to Siesta Key. “I’ve always been interested in video editing,� says Shawn. “When the kids were little, I used to film them running around, and I’d go in and add music and edit it. They were the stars of their own music videos.� Ryan, who has been working in Hawaii as a website designer for the past 10 years, has recently moved back to Siesta Key, where he and his father quickly began brainstorming ways to combine their creativity and skill sets.

The two came up with the idea for the website, which will consist of both original and usergenerated content and will be organized by location and subject matter, including wildlife, events and the various accommodations offered on Siesta Key. “We just kept coming back to this idea of a video website,� says Ryan. “We want to highlight a few specific areas, and we hope to offer some unique perspectives with our original content.� Shawn says the site is still in its early stages, but the two are excited to see how their project evolves. The pair has already gotten to work, producing some original

Nick Friedman

content for the site including a video of the effects of Tropical Storm Debby on Siesta Key Beach, shot by Shawn using a high-definition helmet camera. “My art has always helped me make a little bit of money,� said Sean. “But, it wasn’t about the money. I liked it, because I was able to do whatever I wanted to do. With the advancements made in technology, it’s really opened up a whole new world for artists — even amateurs can produce professional-quality work.�

The site is up and running, and users are able to submit Siestarelated content for consideration. Ryan says he and his father will also continue to add content to the site and will begin making site updates within the next few weeks. Above all, Ryan says he’s enjoying the opportunity to work with his father. “We have different skills, and we each have our own roles, but, creatively, we’re on the same page,� he says. “It’s been fun. Our skills really complement each other.� CPC 1456671

It’s About tIme. Surely you’ve heard the stereotype of the “mean” dentist with his big, noisy drills, intimidating instruments and sharp needles. Unfortunately these understandable fears keep 50% of the population away from the dentist office. Fortunately sedation dentistry can help. From simply taking the edge off, to a “twilight” state, to full sleep, this specialized form of dentistry uses sedation during dental procedures to relax a patient by eliminating pain, anxiety and discomforting sights, smells or sounds. It also allows for multiple procedures to be addressed at one time in “mega sessions.” Sedation dentistry requires specific training and equipment, however. Only dentists who have been trained in a hospital setting should perform dental procedures with sedation, as this training ensures they’re fully prepared to handle any emergencies that may arise. In addition, the dentist’s office should be equipped with a dedicated recovery room and hospital-caliber equipment with full emergency capabilities. Impressively, when performed by a properly trained dental professional in a well-equipped facility, sedation dentistry has also shown the same safety record as simple dental freezing injections. So it’s about your comfort. It’s about your smile. It’s about time, isn’t it? LV2946

JUSTTHE Eric Delaney STATS athlete of the week


Sean McAdams’ jersey number for the Baltimore Orioles. McAdams graduated from Cardinal Mooney High this year and was picked in the 14th round of the draft by the Orioles.


Number of Sarasota Sharks who are currently competing in the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials.


The height in feet and inches that pole vaulter Lacy Janson cleared to make the Olympic pole vaulting team.

Eric Delaney, 25, got into CrossFit two years ago when a friend told him about a new workout he was doing. Delaney, a diesel mechanic for a road construction company, now trains at CrossFit Sarasota. Delaney, who moved to Sarasota three months ago from Port Charlotte, will be competing at CrossFit Evolution for its Iron Curtain Competition in October. What did you think about CrossFit at first? It sounded really stupid at first but I grew tired of the same routine, so I gave CrossFit a try. Within 30 minutes I was lying on my back gasping for air and have been hooked ever since. What do you enjoy about CrossFit? I enjoy the fact that every day I’m pushing myself to my limits and everyday I see improvement. I like how everyone stays until the last person is finished to cheer them on, and every day is basically like a competition. Is there a workout involved in CrossFit that you dislike? Ugh … anything that involves running. But, I continue to work on it.

petition: 10 snatches, 20 front squats, 30 chest-to-bar pull-ups, 40 wall ball shots with a 20-pound ball, 50 push-ups, 60 sit-ups, 70 sumo deadlift high pulls with a 70-pound kettle-bell, 80 feet of lunges holding a 45-pound plate overhead and, last, a 900-meter run. Are you training for anything right now? I’m not really training for anything right now, I’m just trying to set personal records with the workouts my coach gives me.

What is the best advice you have been given when it comes to CrossFit? Insertion Date: Is there an ultimate goal you The best advice I got was Client: have in mind when it comes toJob Number: from my coach, Matt Wilmoth. CrossFit?

by Heidi Kurpiela | A&E Editor

“There’s no new-kid-on-theblock feeling with Kristofer,” says Venice Theatre Executive/Artistic Director Murray Chase, of Kristofer Geddie. “It feels like he’s always been here.”

man of distinction

Heidi Kurpiela

A year into his post as director of diversity at the Venice Theatre, actor Kristofer Geddie is finding his place in South Sarasota County and discovering he can make a difference through community theater.

It took Kristofer Geddie years of poundIt was in Venice, inside a building that ing the pavement as an actor in New York used to be the gymnasium for the KenCity to realize his stage wasn’t on Broad- tucky Military Institute, at a commuway, off Broadway or even in New York. nity theater that was so hard-pressed to

find a local black actor to play the part of Coalhouse in “Ragtime,” it had to do something it rarely does — hire outside talent.

“I never in a million years thought that I would be here,” Geddie says, surveying the quiet second-story lounge in the Venice Theatre. “Yet, here I am.” When he arrived in September 2010 for “Ragtime” rehearsals, he had just wrapped a NASCAR comedy in North Carolina and was thinking about pursuing a graduate degree in arts administration. Fed up with the commercialization of New York theater, Geddie, 35, was itching to make a change — a change in his own career and a change in the industry. “In New York, it’s all about the all-mighty dollar,” Geddie says. “This is why we see less-thanstellar shows on Broadway. Producers need to make seven figures a week to keep a show open and please the masses. They think with their wallets and not with their hearts.” He found the heart he was looking for at the Venice Theatre. The positive energy of the cast and crew of “Ragtime” brought him back to his roots. In the company of a mostly volunteer cast, Geddie was reminded of why he wanted to be a performer. Actors would arrive for evening rehearsals still dressed in their work uniforms or business attire. Geddie would often catch them nibbling out of takeout boxes because they had yet to eat dinner. “These people work eight-hour shifts then drive to the theater for rehearsal,” Geddie says. “To them, it was more than just a gig. They were here because they loved it. It was really quite refreshing.” He wasn’t the only one who felt refreshed. Executive/Artistic Director


(continued from page 1)

Heidi Kurpiela

“People think of diversity as just a racial thing,” Kristofer Geddie says. “We need more children in here, too. We need a lot more of everything.” Murray Chase was just as invigorated by Geddie’s presence. “He was the most-liked person in the ‘Ragtime’ cast,” Chase says. “He brought the show to a higher level. He was the guy who made sure we got it. He made sure outside rehearsals were scheduled. He helped people when it was needed. He was a steadying influence.” The actor not only came with countless stage credits, he exhibited leadership qualities at a time when Chase was looking for someone to implement a diversity program. When “Ragtime” wrapped, he asked the actor to stay on for the run of “Falsettos.” When “Falsettos” wrapped, he applied for a grant to cover the cost of Geddie’s salary, should he be interested in becoming the theater’s full-time diversity director. “He was the perfect person for the job,” Chase says. “He’s fearless. He has management experience, and he can see the

broader picture.” In April 2011, the Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice awarded Venice Theatre a $30,000 grant to hire Geddie as its director of diversity. As far as Geddie is aware, he’s the only person in Sarasota County with this position at a theater. He’s also the only African-American on staff at the Venice Theatre, which explains why people recognize him everywhere he goes, notoriety he rarely experienced during his 10 years in New York City. “People are so much more receptive here,” he says. “People I don’t even know are coming up to me to show their support. They’re like, ‘Hey, we know what you’re up to and it’s cool with us.’” A soft-spoken native of Fayetteville, N.C., Geddie grew up in what he describes as an “artsy, no-sports” family. A trumpet player and choir singer, his earliest memories are of going to the theater with his

parents and two sisters. “I remember I was terrified the first time I saw ‘Hello, Dolly,’” Geddie says. “The train was so loud, I felt like it was coming after me. I was maybe 3 or 4 years old, too young to realize what I was hearing was a sound effect.” By the time he saw “The Great White Hope” as a curious middleschool student, he was hip to the magic of sound effects and, consequently, hooked on theater. “I always wanted to be a performer,” Geddie says. “And then I got to college and decided I needed to know how it all worked.” In 1998, he graduated from Mars Hill College with a bachelor’s degree in musical theater and a concentration in arts administration. His first job was brief, but fiery: a short-lived run in the “Beetlejuice Graveyard Revue” at Universal Studios. His recollection of the experience is clouded by smoke — literally. In summer 1998, wildfires scorched large portions of Central Florida, driving Geddie back home to North Carolina. “I vowed I’d never come back to Florida,” he laughs. “I’ve since had to swallow my words.” Last month, the Gulf Coast Community Foundation renewed the organization’s diversity grant, in essence buying Geddie another year in Venice. Says the actor: “Florida has been good to me.” His work with the Venice Theatre has really only just begun. In addition to networking with leaders in African-American communities, Geddie spent the season developing outreach programs for area schools that were

focused on the theater’s productions of “Big River” and “The Phantom Tollbooth.” He also helped facilitate an internship partnership with Berea College in Kentucky and select repertoire for next season, including “Crowns,” a play about African-American women in church hats that Geddie is slated to direct. “I’m not here to force anything or change the theater’s mission statement,” he says. “I’m just trying to make people more aware. It’s going to take time … and trust.”

CELEBRATING DIVERSITY ON STAGE Kristofer Geddie lists his favorite open-minded plays and musicals. ‘Ragtime’ – “It’s really about the coming together of America at the turn of the last century. It’s about that melting-pot era, when the music of ragtime was a symbol of changes in America.” ‘Intimate Apparel’ – “It’s a love story set in the early 1900s that sweeps across different classes.” ‘Hairspray’ – “It teaches us that despite our racial and social differences, we’re really all the same.” ‘Angels in America’ – “It takes the AIDS epidemic and puts a face on it. We see that these people are human and loved.”

HEARD by Heidi Kurpiela | A&E Editor

+ Cigar-box guitar craze spawns a band Last week, I touted the ingenuity of The GarbageMen band that came out of Pine View School’s 10th-grade class. This week I’m tooting the horn of another crafty musician: Steve Cinnamon, a Nokomis retiree, who after recovering from a heart attack in 2009, shook himself out of a funk by building cigar-box guitars. You heard right. Cigarbox guitars. They used to be all the rage when jug bands first cropped up in photo by Heidi Kurpiela the 1920s. Steve Cinnamon Well, guess what? They’re all the rage again. Just ask Cinnamon, a 65-yearold former advertising exec from New York who continues to rack up press, both nationally and locally, for his homemade instruments. In February, Cinnamon was the focus of a long St. Petersburg Times feature. Last month, “A Gulf Coast Journal” picked up the story. According to Cinnamon, host Jack Perkins and his film crew were so taken with the instruments they each purchased one at the end of the three-day shoot. The next step for the entrepreneur: forming a cigar-box band with local musicians Eddie Wright and Steve Arvey. The group will go by the same name as Cinnamon’s company: Cotton Pickin’ Blues. Cinnamon says he won’t be playing with the band. Despite his dexterity at building cigar-box guitars, he claims he’s “no musician.” “I’ve got to learn how to build a bass guitar for Steve,” Cinnamon says. “I better get the move on. They already booked something in August.”

After eight seasons, nine Suncoast Emmy Awards, 33 Suncoast Emmy nominations and two Griot Drum Awards, WEDU has canceled “A Gulf Coast Journal.” Fans of the monthly PBS news magazine are bummed, to say the least. Hosted by Casey Key resident and former A&E “Biography” host Jack Perkins, the program was born out of a $178,000 programming grant — the largest programming grant in WEDU’s history. Perkins signed off the air May 31, with an episode devotCourtesy of WEDU ed to Jack Perkins Steve Cinnamon’s cigar-box guitars, shark teeth, teen court, Lakewood Ranch lacrosse and baby owls. The veteran journalist is working on a book, “Finding Moosewood, Finding God: What Happened When a TV Newsman Abandoned His Career for Life on an Island.”

HOT TICKETS >> ‘Celebrate Sarasota’:

Launched by the Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota, this inaugural summer festival showcases national and local performing artists in concert June 29 through July 8, at a variety of venues. Emmy Awardwinning singer/actress Liz Callaway and pianist Alex Rybeck will kick off the series at 7:30 p.m. June 29, at the Sarasota Opera House. The program will include guest performances by tuba player Jay Hunsberger, composer Francis Schwartz, dancer Leymis Bolaños-Wilmott, harpist Bonnie Caplan and violinist Anita Brooker. For tickets, call 360-7399 or visit artistseriesconcerts. org.


Singer/actress Liz Callaway

When Sarasota wants a sculpture, it’ll stand at nothing to get it. “Complexus,” the 70-foot tall red sculpture in front of One Sarasota Tower, is well on its way to becoming a permanent fixture in downtown Sarasota. Its creator, John Henry, must be so relieved. I was there in November when Henry and his team erected the monumental steel work for this year’s Courtesy Sarasota Season “Complexus” by John Henry of Sculpture. It took all day to set up. Its price tag was originally $850,000, but when the Sarasota Public Art Fund (SPAF) launched a campaign to purchase the piece from Henry, the sculptor agreed to sell it for $500,000. At a public meeting June 18, the Sarasota City Commission approved the group’s request to buy the outdoor sculpture for the city’s permanent art collection. The group has already raised $350,000 toward the purchase, thanks to Sarasota resident Jan Schmidt’s $250,000 donation. Says Thomas J. Savage, president of SPAF, “‘Complexus’ is one of (John Henry’s) most significant pieces — a signature piece that cries out, ‘Hey, look at me! I’m big, bold and beautiful!’ This physically powerful work makes an immediate impact on all who see it.”

Shabby elegance Mark and Susie Holt’s 1920s shabby-chic beach cottage is one of the oldest homes on Casey Key. With the ocean as their front yard, the owners of Posh On Palm, in downtown Sarasota, love to take in the view of the water and the beach. “Beach life is a whole different world,” Susie says. “The second you go over that little bridge and come out here … ” With Susie lost in thought as Tropical Storm Debby sends dark, angry waves flying toward the shore, her husband finishes her sentence. “ … I put my shorts on with the holes in them,”

“It’s a lot of old vintage white lace fabrics pieced together using old French sheets.” — Susie Holt

“I believe I got this in Texas. When we came here, there was a single French door that needed the wood replaced, so I replaced it with an old door. Because there is not a straight door in this place, I used the old door as a pattern and cut it the same. I painted the outside because I knew it would get weathered and left the inside alone because it goes with the whole theme of the house and furniture.” — Mark Holt


“This is one of my favorite chairs. It’s an old little French 1920s chair, and we set it next to a little French table that Mark painted. Above the shelf is mercury glass, white McCoy Pottery and a white iron stone.” — Susie Holt

Mark says. When the couple first toured the house, which they purchased just more than one year ago, they wondered if the one-bedroom, one-bath bungalow would be large enough. But, with just a few little design touches, it proved to be much bigger than it seemed. “People don’t fix these up anymore,” Mark says. “They tear them down and build mansions, but … ” This time, it’s Susie who completes her husband’s thought. “ … We love the character of our old little place,” she says. “It’s a very lazy life.”






“I love everything white-on-white and texture. We wanted a feeling of all white and used soft blue to bring the ocean in. The matching French chandeliers on the wall were imported from Paris. There are a total of six chandeliers in this little one-bedroom bungalow. You can never have too many.” — Susie Holt

“Peely and edgy is in. It looks like something I’d pick up at the flea market. It’s neat when you can add that with elegance.” — Susie Holt

“It’s a European piece that we got from France. We wanted something to make a statement.” — Susie Holt

“I love the shingled ceiling — another thing that drew us to this house. We’re thinking about adding a claw-foot tub in the bathroom.” — Susie Holt

>> ‘Love, Loss, and What I Wore’ It was a special treat to see the iconic “M*A*S*H” star, Loretta Swit, and an exceptionally talented cast, at the Asolo Rep last week, all under the direction of Karen Carpenter. Carpenter was responsible for the original off-Broadway smash hit, “Love, Loss, and What I Wore.” The Rep is one of the first theaters in the country to independently produce this witty piece, written by two of my favorite writers, Norah and Delia Ephron, based on the book by Ilene Beckerman. You’ll recognize the Ephrons’ scripting from the popular films, “Sleepless in Seattle,” “You’ve Got Mail” and “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.” The Ephron sisters, like the Brontës, know the internal clockwork and generational zeitgeist of their female compatriots inside and out, and it was cathartic, as well as great fun, to see our egos splayed on the stage in the form of the shared insecurities and emotional follies to which the female gender are prone. The men loved laughing at us, too — no surprise there. After the actors idiosyncratically made their way on stage in individualized, adorably black outfits, Swit anchored the collection of estrogen-infused monologues by intermittently referring to a large sketchpad containing a panoply of artist-drawn sartorial creations on an easel to her right. As Gingy, Swit told her poignant story, and the rest of the women, perched energetically on stools, responded with whatever memories were unleashed regarding the outfits presented. The results formed the kind of hilarity that really sticks to your ribs: heartwarming and heartbreaking. Although it was all compelling, some highlights included

Chris Bennion

Roni Geva is part of the all-female cast in “Love, Loss, and What I Wore,” at the Asolo Repertory Theatre. Roni Geva’s standout moment in a scene where she charmingly gets fitted for her first bra. Rosalyn Coleman’s long legs flash and her charm shines in tales about boot obsessions and an errant boyfriend. Donna McKechnie bravely stares down a mastectomy with the aid of an artful tattoo. Mary Testa, especially, made the audience ache with laughter at her hysterical gestures and intonations in a bit about literally losing her shirt. She raised the personal recognition factor off the chart and delighted the men in the audience as well, to rousing applause. — Paula Atwell

he recently opened Carmel Café is a mold-breaker. The food is “modern Mediterranean” — a fusion of favorites from countries including Italy, Spain, France, Morocco and Greece. The décor is modern moderation — clean lines and neutral backgrounds with handsome color from red couches and large-scale artworks by architect Albert Alfonso, who is also a painter. What makes the place unique is the way that customers order from the menu. It is called a MenuPad, and it is an iPad loaded with software developed by NetStar in Australia in collaboration with Carmel Café founders and owners Chris Sullivan, Nancy Schneid and Alexander Sullivan. It is an intuitive app for the increasingly ubiquitous tablet; you launch it by tapping an icon on the home screen and selecting a category for food or wine. When you make your selections, they go instantly to the kitchen or the bar. Other restaurants are experimenting with iPad systems,
