SIESTA BEACH CONSTRUCTION A series of major renovations to Siesta Key Public Beach will break ground this month, marking the first steps of a $21.5 million county project to alleviate a parking crunch at the area’s top tourism attraction and update its facilities. The kickoff of the Siesta Beach improvements will coincide with the wrapping up of perpetually delayed Beach Road drainage improvements. That project was scheduled for completion by December, but was stalled by heavy rainfall in September.

The property at the northwest corner of U.S. 41 and Gulfstream Avenue was emblematic of the housing trend during the last decade: targeted for a highprofile, high-rise condominium development, only to see the land remain vacant and plans fizzle out due to a lack of demand. Now, it’s emblematic of a different trend, because it’s slated to become the home of one of at least four hotel developments in downtown Sarasota aiming to break ground in 2014. The Kolter Group plans to build a 250room Westin Hotel, in addition to a 144room condominium, on the 2.9-acre bayfront property. Dwight Thomas, the west coast regional president with Kolter, said the group has targeted a vertical construction date around June. The Kolter project, called The Vue, hasn’t received the final stamp of approval from the city, for occupants of the nearby Tower Residences at the Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota have called into question the quality of a traffic study performed to gauge the impact of the development. Still, it’s one of several projects with forward momentum heading into 2014. Rendering courtesy Jim Bridges Another hotel at 1289 N.

Before you vote for that tax It’s pretty much of a foregone conclusion that Sarasota County voters next March will approve for the fourth time a four-year extension of the one-mill, local-option school property tax. Sarasota’s retiree voters have always had a soft spot for public schools. And they’re convinced this tax, which generates about $44 million a year on average, is essential to maintaining the Sarasota County Public School District’s status as one of the top districts in the state. It’s probably safe to say about the only way you might persuade Sarasota County voters not to approve the tax would be to show them, say, teachers and administrators making training videos while partying half nude in their Las Vegas hotel rooms. That, of course, is how it’s done at the Internal Revenue Service. Nonetheless, voters shouldn’t go to the polls next March and blindly scribble pencil-lead in the “yes” bubble on the ballot. At least know to what you’re saying “yes.” In that vein, in the coming weeks, we intend to give you some context and information to help you be more than one of those “lowinformation voters” whom Rush Limbaugh disdains. If you go to the Sarasota County School District website (sarasotacountyschools. net), look for the button on the lower left side of the home page, titled “Referendum Info.” There’s a great 12-page Appendix B that spells out year by year how the district has spent the $529.3 million it has collected over the past 12 years. As sold to voters, the money has covered the cost mostly of teachers. And it has done so well. Indeed, in the table titled “Teacher Salaries,” you can see Sarasota County teachers on average are paid far above the average statewide teacher salaries. You get what you pay for; at least that’s the saying. What we don’t show in the tables are the results — how Sarasota County students are doing vis-a-vis their peers. On last year’s Florida Comprehensive Achievement Tests, Sarasota County eighth-graders’ scores placed them second in math and seventh in reading among Florida’s 67 school districts. Backers of the tax, no doubt, will say those rankings confirm the efficacy of the tax. Everything’s debatable, of course. When you compare American students’ achievement to those of their international peers, we’re not so swell. U.S. students ranked 16th in science and 23rd in math among 57 industrialized countries on the Programme for International Student Assessment tests. One thing that has been proven for sure is that pouring more money into the schools isn’t the answer to improving student achievement. It takes more than that, and maybe even less money than the schools are getting now. We’ll discuss that trick in a future edition.

COST OF EDUCATION For all students in Sarasota County public schools pre-K through grade 12: Pupil/ Per-Pupil Teacher Cost Ratio 2009 $10,725 15.4 2010 $10,427 15.0 2011 $10,500 14.9 2012 $9,819 15.0 $10,017 14.4 2013 In contrast, the average perpupil tuition in Catholic parish elementary schools is $5,387. The secondary school mean freshman tuition is $10,228 per pupil.

DOW 16,000 = BOOM IN BABY BOOMER RETIREES? For more than three decades, Florida’s economic growth has hinged to a large extent on population growth and the ability of new retirees up north being able to sell their homes. As we all know, population growth pretty much came to a halt during the recent economic “unpleasantness,” otherwise known in the mainstream media as THE GREAT RECESSION. But Florida may be on the cusp of Basu another surge in new retirees. “You show me a Dow at 16,000, and I’ll show you a ton of retiring baby boomers,” said Anirban Basu, founder and chief economist of Sage Policy Group Inc., a Baltimore-based economic and policy consulting firm. As of Wednesday morning, the Dow was at 16,471. Come on down! Basu presented his economic outlook for 2014 Wednesday in Sarasota to the Gulf

Coast CEO Forum, a group of 80 CEOs from Sarasota and Manatee counties. And it was mostly sanguine — all things considered. Basu doesn’t expect the U.S. or Florida economies to be booming. About the only place you’ll find any booming is in Minot, N.D., the heart of oil-fracking. But Florida is doing pretty well as well. As Basu noted, in 2012, Florida ranked second nationally in the growth rate of new jobs, behind North Dakota. And the state’s unemployment rate fell from more than 8% to 6.4%, below the national average. “Look, I’m just an economist,” Basu said in response to a question about what he is forecasting for 2014. “I say look at the capitalists. Where are they putting their money? Are they putting it into condos in Miami? They are.” Which is his way of saying Florida’s economy looks good.

Also worth noting from Basu: • “I don’t see inflation in our near term,” he said. He says the growing middle class in India, with a surging population in the 24 to 40 age groups, will serve as a release valve on rising labor costs and thus help hold down inflation. • “If there is a QE 4 and 5, that is very bad,” Basu said of the Federal Reserve Bank’s U.S. debt bond-buying programs. “It would mean the recovery has ended.” • The U.S.’ $17 trillion debt: He’s not worried about it now. “I was taught you read the tape,” he said. “And the bond market is saying (U.S. debt) is not a problem right now. Someday, it will be, but it’s not now.” To illustrate, he said Japan’s national debt is more than 200% of its gross domestic product, and investors are still buying the Japanese government’s bond debt. • On health care: “It will be more expensive” than it is now, thanks to Obamacare’s subsidized health exchanges.

“As much as we think it’s nice to be able to give to someone else, our clients actually give more back to us.

here made all the difference; they come in feeling down and dejected, and the center looks at their entire life, not just from a medical perspective.” The faith-based pregnancy center is dedicated to ensuring women and families dealing with unexpected pregnancies are equipped to make healthy decisions regarding parenthood by providing free pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, peer counseling, education, job-referral services and support through the first year of the babies’ lives. Carey was so passionate about the cause that, after volunteering, she met with the previous director to put her business experience to use as a board member. Last year, she became director. During her time at Sarasota Medical Pregnancy Center, Carey says she’s most enjoyed working with the women and families who come through the doors. She says the women often are facing a lot of uncertainty, and that it’s rewarding to be able to work with them through whatever decision they decide is best. By working with them to ensure

Five years ago, when Jennifer Carey moved from New York to Sarasota, she learned about Sarasota Medical Pregnancy Center at a diaper drive organized through her church. The organization caught her attention, and she decided to donate her time as a volunteer. “I’ve always enjoyed mentoring children,” she says. “That’s always meant a lot to me. It really caught my heart to see that there’s so much we can give to people. Seeing their lives transformed as they come through

WEDDING CRASHERS

by Nolan Peterson | News Editor

Siesta Beach renovations have SKVA on edge The Siesta Key Village Association met for the first time in 2014 on Tuesday, opening the new year with fresh concerns about how the two-year renovation project at Siesta Beach might impact the island’s tourism industry. Other topics discussed at Tuesday’s meeting: • Siesta residents still have concerns about a proposed U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project to mine Big Pass for Lido Beach sand. Siesta Key Association Member Michael Shay, who attended Tuesday’s SKVA meeting, said the Army Corps had yet to follow up with a detailed study on how the proposed dredging and its three erosion control jetties (known as groins) would impact Siesta Key beaches. Shay said the Corps had pushed back the release of the study from January to March. “The fact is they don't know what impact it will have on Siesta,” said SKA Member Peter van Roekens, who also attended Tuesday’s SKVA meeting, referring to the Corps’ study of the dredging project’s impact on Siesta beaches.

Planned renovations of the pavilion at Siesta Beach will expand the facility while respecting architect Tim Seibert's original design. “It’s not that we aren’t going to be doing weddings at the beach, it’s just that we can’t guarantee a particular section of the beach will be available,” Preisser said. “County Parks and Recreation know that wedding days are very special days. There are access points to the beach that are going to be accessible, and staff will be willing to work with couples wishing to get married during that time.” To plan a wedding at Siesta Key Beach, couples are required to obtain a permit from Sarasota County Parks and

Recreation, which costs $54 per hour with a three-hour minimum. Preisser said 212 permits were issued in 2013 by Sarasota County Parks and Recreation staff for events at Siesta Beach Park, the majority of which were for weddings. When asked if construction could potentially limit public access to the beach, Preisser said: “The beach is going to remain open during the project,” adding, “We’re not doing any construction on the beach; we’re not touching the sand.”

With three weeks still to go before the Jan. 28 groundbreaking of the $21.5 million Siesta Beach Park renovation project, the Siesta Key Village Association is already on edge about the project potentially limiting access to the area’s top tourism draw. The association of Siesta Village business owners met for the first time in 2014 on Tuesday, and wedding permits for Siesta Beach Park were the meeting’s hot topic, foreshadowing what will likely be a two-year-long dialogue between county officials and Siesta business owners about how best to mitigate the potentially harmful impacts of the Siesta Beach renovations to the island’s tourism industry. Association members raised concerns about rumors that Sarasota County Parks and Recreation would be canceling all wedding permits at Siesta Beach in 2015, claiming such a move would negatively impact the revenue of restaurants, retailers and hotels that depend on tourist dollars for their bottom lines. “This could really impact businesses on the Key,” said Russell Matthes, co-owner of the Daiquiri Deck Raw Bar. “You can't just say no to people wanting to get married at Siesta and have them go to Venice Beach or Turtle Beach.” County officials, however, rejected the rumor, declaring that wedding permits will be available for all of 2015. The only caveat, according to Sarasota County Press Information Officer Curt Preisser, is that during the 2015 “wedding season,” which runs from March through June, the park’s historic pavilion will be under construction, requiring couples to move their ceremonies to other beach access sites.

Chalk Festival art lingers on Burns Square streets Sarasota Chalk Festival artwork is still visible on Pineapple Avenue, but city staff says an agreement required the street to be cleaned more than three weeks ago. The Sarasota Chalk Festival was held almost two months ago, but remnants of the event still exist on Pineapple Avenue. Some of the artwork, faded but still visible, has not been cleaned off the streets since the event concluded Nov. 18. While Burns Square businesses say they are appreciative of how the festival went this year, some are wondering when the last traces of the event will be gone. Denise Kowal, founder of the chalk festival, says the group behind the event is moving forward with plans to clean the streets, and that it shouldn’t be a problem. She added that, by and large, the reception to the artwork and event has been positive. “We’re still dealing with the same typical people in the neighborhood,” Kowal said. “But overall, the reaction to what was done this year — and the art that still remains — is that most people love it.” Kowal said she is unaware of any agreement with the city that required a cleaning, but City Manager Tom Barwin said a stipulation of the festival’s event permit was that the streets must be cleaned within 30 days. Barwin said public works was working with the festival to try to ensure the remaining artwork was removed with care. “We just want to make sure that the pavement isn’t damaged by any removal,” Barwin said. “I think the neighborhood and the city have certainly been collaborative with the festival, trying to leave a viewing period while the art was still clear and high-quality.”

Works from the Chalk Festival, such as this drawing near Dolphin Street, have not yet been cleaned from the road. At least one Burns Square tenant backed Kowal’s claim that people appreciate of the lingering art. Nadja Moeller is the owner of Nessentials, located at 532 S. Pineapple Ave. “It brings people down here that still want to look,” Moeller said. “Some of the art is very beautiful.” LeeAnne Swor, owner of L Botique and president of the Burns Court Neighborhood Association, said businesses have reached out to her to ask that the streets be cleared. Swor said there was no animosity on the part of the people who requested to remove the artwork. “We were just wondering when it was going to happen,” Swor said. “It seemed like it was a great party, and people are wondering when it’s going to get cleaned up.”

BEST OF THE BEST

by David Conway | News Editor

by Nolan Peterson | News Editor

DID grapples with present, Alta Vista principal named future budget considerations one of the best in Florida Between Five Points Park lighting and potential expansion, the Downtown Improvement District is dealing with fiscal concerns. blocks of Main Street in December. He balked at the cost, which was more than three times as expensive as the Main Street installation. Ron Soto, president of the Sarasota Downtown Merchants Association and a DID board member, said the increased cost was due to the size of the trees in the park. The Main Street trees were each outfitted with 1,000 lights; the proposal for Five Points lighting would place 3,500 lights on each tree. The DID passed on the current proposal, but said there was still an interest in a similar project if the merchant group could reduce the price. After the failure of the previous system, installed in 2010 and deactivated last summer, Moran believes the DID should be responsible for helping to find a replacement. “I feel we have an obligation to do something,” Moran said. “I think we can proportionately trim this, to the point to where it’ll still have the wow effect.” The DID has been dealing with budget constraints in the new fiscal year after committing future funds to last summer’s $1.9 million Main Street improvement project. An ex-

panded DID could lead to as much as $1.3 million dollars in new revenue, but any action on that front is at least six months away, Moran said. A consensus has emerged among board members that expansion would be good for the DID, but the group is split about how far-reaching it should be. Moran advocated a vast expansion, with boundaries as far north as 10th Street, as far east as School Avenue, as far south as Mound Street and extending west to the bayfront. He said the DID could then fund “gamechanging” projects, such as a downtown circulator or Fruitville Road improvements. Kauffman has pushed for a more limited expansion — a few blocks around the current boundaries, and extending far enough northwest to include hotels along the bayfront. Ritz suggested holding a conference that invites stakeholders from throughout the area to see who’s interested in joining and what projects people want to see completed. Moran agreed, saying that this will be an ongoing effort for the group. “This is not something we do today or tomorrow,” Moran said.

The Sarasota County School Board kicked off 2014 with its first board meeting of the new year Tuesday, taking time to highlight an area elementary school and its principal for their outstanding achievements. The board honored the recent ranking of Alta Vista Elementary School among the state's top 20 Title I schools, as well as the recent selection of Alta Vista's principal, Dr. Barbara Shirley, as one of the three final- Shirley ists for the Florida Principal Award for Outstanding Leadership. Shirley received a standing ovation from a contingent of Alta Vista parents and teachers attending the meeting. "We never think about honor or recognition when we do our work," Shirley said. "We do it because it is the right thing to do for the children." Shirley has been principal of Alta Vista Elementary since July 2007 and has worked for the Sarasota County School District since 1993. Alta Vista Elementary has maintained an “A” rating during Shirley’s tenure as principal. It is designated as a Five-Star School, a distinction that recognizes schools with high levels of family and community involvement.

The East Coast Technical Assistance Center (ECTAC), a network of 36 school districts across Florida, named Alta Vista Elementary School as one of Florida’s top 20 Title I schools (out of 1,243 statewide) based on improving student achievement. Title I schools have a high percentage of students living in poverty; more than 90% of Alta Vista students receive free or reducedcost meals. The school was praised for “exceeding expectations on academic indicators when compared to other schools with similar characteristic and populations.” The Principal Achievement Award for Outstanding Leadership was established in 1988 to recognize Florida school leaders for notable contributions to their schools and communities. Each district is allowed to nominate one principal for the award. John Zoretich, executive director of elementary schools, said it was the first time a principal from Sarasota County had been selected as one of the state’s three finalists. The winner will be announced Feb. 3. “No matter who wins in February, we already know who the best principal in the state is,” Zoretich said.

THE DOCTOR IS IN HAND PAIN Hand pain has many causes. Nighttime pain with numbness and tingling is most classic for carpal tunnel syndrome (compression of the median nerve at the wrist). Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is treated non-operatively with splinting and sometimes steroid injections. If the symptoms persist or worsen, surgery is recommended. Endoscopic carpal tunnel release uses smaller incisions and therefore usually results in a quicker recovery and return back to use of the hand. Other causes of hand and wrist pain include tendonitis – which can occur in the fingers as trigger fingers – or in the wrist as DeQuervain’s tenosynovitis – especially common in new mothers or families with new babies. Steroid injections

are usually very helpful for these problems. Basal joint arthritis (CMC arthritis) is another common cause of pain in the hand – this is localized to the base of the thumb. This is most painful when gripping or squeezing with the hand, such as with opening a jar. Non-operative treatment with splinting and steroid injections is usually very helpful for the treatment of this condition. Occasionally surgery is indicated. Sarasota Orthopedic Associates has been serving the community with orthopedic excellence since 1978.

At the beginning of Tuesday’s Downtown Improvement District meeting, DID Director John Moran envisioned a future in which the group, by expanding its boundaries, could undertake massive, multimillion-dollar projects. That discussion made the stringent economic reality the DID is currently operating in even starker, as the group then demurred on committing $43,550 to the installation of a new tree-lighting system at Five Points Park. The proposal, which came from the Sarasota Downtown Merchants Association, was already a sizable price decrease from the color-change LED lighting system the DID paid to demonstrate in December. That option, which would have cost between $91,000 and $136,000, failed to receive enthusiastic support from local stakeholders. DID member Mark Kauffman said the price point made it unfeasible for the group to fund that system itself. DID Chairman Ernie Ritz was the loudest objector to the newest proposed lighting system, which would use the same lights that were installed along the 1300, 1400 and 1500

The Sarasota School Board’s first meeting of 2014 recognized the recent achievements of Alta Vista Elementary School and its principal.

Ryan McMahon has taken on a new role. It’s one unlike any the Cardinal Mooney High junior guard experienced during his first two seasons with the Cougars. As a sophomore, McMahon was dubbed Cardinal Mooney’s sixth man — providing a boost of energy and defense off the bench whenever the Cougars needed it. Now, in his second varsity season, McMahon is responsible for bringing that same energy to the floor every day, both in practice and in competition. “I love being in charge,” McMahon says. “There’s a little bit of pressure that comes with that, though. At the beginning of the year I felt it, but I just try to calm down. When I don’t think about it and just play the game — the pressure’s not there.” McMahon’s father, a former Valparaiso University basketball player, introduced his son to the sport at an early age. “All of my baby pictures have basketball toys in them or are basketball-related,” McMahon says. McMahon quickly took to the sport; he spent countless hours perfecting his game. Last season, McMahon averaged 8.3 points per game while helping lead the Cougars to the Class 3A-District 10 championship and a berth in the regional finals. Now, McMahon is hoping to use last season’s disappointing loss to Community School of Naples as motivation toward another state-title run. “I like the team aspect of it,” McMahon says. “You have five guys who are basically a family going to battle every night. “We put in a lot of work over the summer, and now it feels like we’ve finally clicked as a team and our hard work is paying off,” McMahon says. In his junior season, McMahon is averaging 15.9 points, 3.6 assists, 3.1 steals and 2.1 rebounds per game while helping lead the Cougars to a 9-5 record (4-0 Class 3A-District 10). “He’s picked up right where he left off last year,” Cardinal Mooney coach Stefan Gates says. “He’s a very dynamic player. He really sees the floor well, and he gets his teammates involved. He’s a gym rat. He works really hard, and he loves it.” Following this season, McMahon will resume playing travel ball for Florida Elite; he plans to play college basketball. “I’ve gotten a good amount of exposure,” McMahon says. “I’m just going to see where basketball takes me.” Contact Jen Blanco at jblanco@ yourobserver.com.

Pam Donehew sits at her desk surrounded by piles of schoolwork, books and reports. Since she was promoted to director of instruction/ IB at Sarasota Military Academy a year-and-a-half ago, Donehew says she has not only gained new responsibilities, but also a small family consisting of students, parents and teachers. SMA introduced its International Baccalaureate (IB) program in August. The intense educational program teaches students the skills to succeed in a rapidly globalizing world. Donehew and Headmaster Dan Kennedy started the application process in January 2011. Donehew was confident in the program after she saw her granddaughters thrive in Riverview High School’s IB program. “It changes lives,” Donehew says. Six months into the school year,

Donehew says she sees personal growth among the 50 freshmen in SMA’s IB program. Donehew works closely with the students, their families and 16 SMA teachers to make the experience as rewarding as possible. She maintains a tight bond between IB families and teachers with a weekly email. While this new small family grows, Donehew strives to keep the SMA family atmosphere throughout the school and not make the new program an “us and them” situation. “We’re all a family at SMA,” says Donehew. “I want to keep it that way.” Looking forward, Donehew hopes more students will join the IB program next year. Her goal is for 100 incoming freshmen to join the 50 students currently enrolled in the IB program. She is also working on offering the IB’s Middle Years Program to SMA middle school students.

+ Correction In the Dec. 26 issue, we inadvertently omitted the top home sale in the listing of the top transactions of 2013. The highest home-sale price was $10 million for the home at 3410 Flamingo Ave., on Siesta Key. The six-bedroom property, sold in February, is called “Snook Inn” for its Old Florida resortlike feel, according to a release from Michael Saunders & Co., whose agents represented both the buyer and seller. The sellers were Philip and Brooke Callanen; buyers were Kenneth and Grace Solinsky, of Bedford, N.H.  The more than 6,000-square-foot home, with a deep-water, double-vessel boathouse, is on nearly two acres with 500 feet that front Sarasota Bay. The home features an antique pine-paneled library, custom millwork, waterfront verandas and a one-bedroom guest suite attached to the boathouse. A resort-style swimming pool is outside, in addition to shuffleboard courts.The architect was Clifford Scholz, and the builder was Michael Collingwood.

// ARTS&ENTERTAINMENT: SERIAL THRILLER

by Mallory Gnaegy | A&E Editor

KILLER

“My main characters are resilient and strong. It doesn’t mean they aren’t worried, threatened or scared to death, but they figure it out and no one comes in and saves them,” Mary Jane Clark says.

INSTINCTS There’s almost always a smart, strong leading character who has to save herself in the face of a killer in Mary Jane Clark’s mystery thrillers.

hen actor and wedding-cake designer Piper Donovan came to Sarasota for a wedding one year ago, she witnessed multiple murders. She’s headed to New Orleans this January, and she’ll take that mental baggage with her — Donovan always seems to be around when dead bodies appear. Luckily, Donovan is the fictional character in New York Times’ bestselling author Mary Jane Clark’s Piper Donovan Mystery Series. Clark is a part-time resident of Siesta Key who splits her time with Hillsdale, N.J. The fourth book and newest installment to her series, “That Old Black Magic,” will be released Jan. 21. It follows Donovan to New Orleans, where she guest bakes at a bakery in the French Quarter when a series of voodoo-related murders take place. Clark says the location of her books is always important. “New Orleans has everything you’d want to have in a mystery,” she says. She was inspired after an American Library Association convention took place there following Hurricane Katrina. “I remember being so touched because you could tell when you walked down the street and went into the little shops, that

people were so glad that you had come,” Clark says from her Siesta Key apartment. “I got this feeling, and really keyed into what they had been through and the hope and resilience of the people.” In March 2012, right before she started writing, Clark went back for a visit. She saw the above-ground crypts, went on a voodoo tour, took a steamboat ride on the Mississippi and, of course, ate lots of food — to conjure just the right descriptions of the Big Easy. Her actress daughter, Elizabeth Higgins Clark, inspired the main character of the series. A $75 Martha Stewart coffee-table book on cake decorating inspired the character’s career. She says her daughter and Piper Donovan are very similar. “They know what they want. They have a good heart and a real sense of what’s right and wrong,” Clark says. Clark sits comfortably atop a cozy denim couch surrounded by rattan furniture in her Siesta Key condo with a killer view. Based on her beachy, relaxed appearance and upon a first introduction, she doesn’t seem like the type who spends her days thinking up gruesome black magic killers. But, her bio fits the bill, or rather, kill. First off, the name “Clark” might also

// ARTS&ENTERTAINMENT Mary Jane Clark’s 5 favorite Sarasota spots: 1. Cà d' Zan 2. Standing at a sea turtle's new nest on the beach 3. Feeding the flamingoes at Sarasota Jungle Gardens 4. On a pontoon taking the Mote Marine/Sea Life Encounters cruise around Sarasota Bay 5. Watching the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico from her condo on Siesta Key trigger the names Mary Higgins Clark (her former mother-in-law) or Carol Higgins Clark (her former sister-in-law) — two other famous writers. Although, Mary Jane Clark kept her name long before she started writing books, for her children’s sake. Her former mother-in-law had some influence on Mary Jane Clark’s career. “I always thought writing books was something mystical, like, ‘How could anyone write a book?’” she says. While the rest of the family was out waterskiing or having hot dogs on the deck, her former mother-in-law would be in her room working on her next book. “I would see how hard she worked and I realized it wasn’t so much about the magic, but it was about the hard work,��� Clark says. More so than her former in-laws’ familial connection to writing, Clark herself grew up in an environment prone to suspense. She grew up in New Jersey where her father, Fred Behrends, worked for the FBI on Russian espionage, kidnapping and extortion cases. “He never would talk about his cases, but sometimes I’d read about them in a newspaper,” she says. “There was a feeling of suspense for what he did for a liv-

A shelf in Mary Jane Clark’s condo proudly displays her first 15 books. ing, and I wouldn’t be surprised if that influenced me in going into suspense writing.” But, it was media coverage of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination that made her want to work in television news. She got her first job in New York at CBS as a desk assistant making $117 a week, working the overnight shift. She’d work her way up over the next 27 years, covering everything from hurricanes and shootings to politics and visits from the pope. “Sometimes you’d think, ‘God, you couldn’t make this stuff up!’” she says about the content she was producing. “That was so wonderfully fertile and showed me that if I could think of it, it could happen.” She started writing her first book, “Do You Want to Know a Secret,” on the side of her CBS job. In 1991, she was newly divorced from her husband, David Clark. She had a 5-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, and a 1-year-old son, David, with Fragile X syndrome, a developmental disability. Clark began working part time at CBS to be around for her son, and needed an additional means of financial support. She says she probably wouldn’t have started writing if it weren’t for her son’s birth — she wanted to secure a financial future for him. It grew into something much bigger

than she thought. “It was totally therapeutic for me,” she says. “Because my life was kind of spinning out of control, and in writing the story I could control everything that happened.” She wrote 10 books while at CBS, and retired from the news career in 2007 as a producer. She now devotes her time to writing her successful thrillers. Clark fits the recurring theme of her books: characters, mostly women, who find themselves in hard situations, but figure it out and save themselves. “It may not be some killer with a knife hiding in your closet or anything that obviously dramatic, but I think everyone has ups and downs and hard things they have to get through in life,” she says.

// ARTS&ENTERTAINMENT: SPOTLIGHT

by Mallory Gnaegy | A&E Editor

Sarasota stages foster upcoming actor Actor David Foster is an example of what happens when a talented child grows up on the stages of Sarasota and then decides to pursue acting. He has performed in national tours and received positive reviews as a director, but for the next month, he will perform in the city where he got his start. He can be seen in Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe’s threeman play, “The Whipping Man,” through Feb. 2. He’s playing a Jewish Confederate soldier who returns home following the Civil War to learn it was destroyed and his family fled, and the only two remaining people who can help him are his former slaves who are now free. Foster calls it a “secrets play,” meaning the plot is well constructed with secrets revealed as the play goes on — it constantly surprises. Although Foster is from Sarasota, he showed big ambition when it came to his career. First, he didn’t go to just any college to study acting — he studied it at Juilliard. He isn’t one of those actors who has to work at a restaurant on the side. And he isn’t a “New York-based” actor who really live in Queens — he lives in Manhattan. He didn’t struggle for work upon graduation, either. Instead, he immediately joined a national tour of “West Side Story” for two years. He’s also met success as a director. Last summer, he and a producer took over Shelter Island Theatre Co. in Long Island, N.Y., and he directed “Much Ado About Nothing,” which garnered enough positive reviews that Foster will di-

enjoyed the experience so much his mother, Kim Raymond, enrolled him in Florida Studio Theatre’s youth acting program. When area professional theaters needed a child actor, such as in The Golden Apple Dinner Theatre’s 1999 production of “Camelot” and Asolo Repertory Theatre’s production of “The Merry Wives of Windsor”

— they cast Foster. Soon after, he was performing at Manatee Players, Sarasota Players and in the Island Shakespeare Festival on Anna Maria Island. Foster worked with Howard Millman throughout his youth. Millman is the former producing artistic director at Asolo Rep and is also directing “The Whipping

Man.” He contacted Foster about the latest role. “It’s so wonderful to be woring with Howard again now that I’m an adult,” Foster says with a small chuckle. “When you’re a kid, adults are just adults.” When he was a kid, Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe wasn’t an equity house. Instead, it didn’t have a theater space. The theater at 10th Street, which it now owns, was a fencing academy then. The company has grown a lot in the time that Foster has been away. “I think ‘The Whipping Man’ will be really great for this company, without sounding too presumptuous,” Foster says. He thinks audiences will be impressed with the quality, the direction and the set. “Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe constantly has to raise the bar on itself to grow the audience and have a footprint in the community theatrically, and this is the next step in its path,” he says.

// ARTS&ENTERTAINMENT: BACKSTAGE PASS

by Mallory Gnaegy | A&E Editor

The Alfstad family paints a collaborative vision “All in the Family” is more than The Ice House’s most recent exhibit, which features the work of Sarasota artists and the work of their fellow artist children. But there’s another prominent family tied to this exhibit, which opens Friday, Jan. 10: the Alfstads. Sam Alfstad and his daughters, Casey Alfstad and Annie Mayme Alfstad, are the reason The Ice House debuted in November. In January 2013, Sam Alfstad, 67, moved to Sarasota to figure out what he wanted to do with the rest of his life. He had previously worked in advertising as a creative director and eventually founded a market research company, eMarketer. When Casey Alfstad moved to Sarasota in summer 2012 to work in the arts (she was responsible for SRQ Magazine’s Saturday morning editorial cartoons), Alfstad decided to plant roots, as well. Annie Mayme Alfstad, the 28-year-old business-minded daughter, was living in New York in 2012 working at eMarketer. The trio doesn’t remember the specific details, but somewhere along the line they began to envision founding a production company in Sarasota. On Nov. 25, 2012, they met at Sam Alfstad’s home in New York for a first official meeting. “The thing that got us all excited was the concept,” says Annie Mayme Alfstad. They pictured a production company that would re-imagine how to make and market art. They pictured a studio space where artists could collaborate on one topic. “Most artists working independently go into the studio (to work),

Sculptural pieces by Mark Anderson on display in “Sarasota Artists: All in the Family.” then pop out with piece and say, ‘What do you think?’” says Alfstad. “And most people don’t know what to think.” Alfstad says it’s like when he was a creative director and had to focus his artists on one idea — narrow confinement and collaboration was how the artists worked best. In January 2013, the Alfstads rented a studio space at 1421 Fifth St. They gathered a group of local artists, freelancers and Ringling College of Art and Design students who began creating work in March 2013 for what would become “Reimagining Georgia O’Keeffe and

Alfred Stieglitz: 2014” (the February 2014 exhibit). That’s when Alfstad realized they would need a place to showcase the work. Before that, The Ice House wasn’t even a thought. The three Alfstads first envisioned a pop-up gallery, when Casey Alfstad stumbled across the old icehouse in the Rosemary District last summer. Back then, it was being rented as a furniture-upholstery and consignment shop. It had a contemporary feel — white 13-foot-high walls, cement floors and the perfect rough-aroundthe-edges quality reminiscent of major contemporary galleries in

Los Angeles and New York. It had a room they could revamp into an educational room to tell the story and context of the featured art. “It was perfect,” Casey Alfstad says. And the Alfstads’ business plan worked out perfectly, too: Alfstad would oversee the whole company, Casey Alfstad would run the studio space, and Annie Mayme Alfstad would run the gallery. “Reimagining Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz: 2014,” which opens Feb. 6, will be the Alfstads’ realized vision. There are about 15 visual and dance artists represented who use a variety of medi-

ums — seven are in house, others are local collaborative artists, and some are internationally based. They created appropriations of the late groundbreaking artists’ (O’Keefe and Stieglitz) work using modern technology and techniques to create new pieces. “We’re trying to re-imagine something that’s been there, but hasn’t been fully realized,” Annie Mayme Alfstad says of the model they’ve formed. “It’s based on an ideal rather than a profit plan,” Casey Alfstad adds. Just as the Alfstads combined their unique talents and visions to create Alfstad& Productions and The Ice House, the artists do the same. “We think there’s room in the art world for other models and other ways to go,” Alfstad says.

How tHey met: Both being at a point in their lives in which they were ready to meet “Mr. or Mrs. Right,” Dan and Courtney are happy to admit they met through eHarmony. At the time, Dan was living in Apollo Beach, so the two emailed back and forth for quite some time before they met in person. The couple’s first date was Feb. 13, 2010, at Mediterraneo.

He tried to get her to go out of town one weekend, but Courtney’s focus was on her 4-day-old nephew. Because he couldn’t get Courtney out of town, Dan decided the morning of Feb. 13, 2012, that he had waited long enough and was ready to propose.

MUSIC // Perlman Music Program 10th Anniversary Gala This is not a review. I wouldn’t attempt to review what is, in most ways, perfection. Rather, it’s the personal story of one of the most exciting, fun evenings of music in memory, and it all revolved around the 10th anniversary gala of the Perlman Music Program’s Winter Residency here in Sarasota. Although the program involved open rehearsals, master classes and performances for a couple of weeks over the holidays, I’ll concentrate on the concert and gala that took place this Saturday evening at the Sarasota Opera House. The concert featured a bevy of super-talented string players between the ages of 12 and 20, with the internationally renowned and beloved violinist, conductor and singer (yes, singer), Itzhak Perlman. What we heard at the gala concert is that PMP is doing everything right. The first part of the program was devoted to choral music under the direction of Patrick Romano. Singing string players? Yes. They learn to sing in a chorus so they can sing with their instruments. They learn to breathe and phrase and be great musicians. These are string players, not singers. But the musicianship they learn from using their Godgiven instruments, the built-in ones, will make them finer players in the long run. (And there was, somewhere in that group, one soprano who had a real voice. Maybe she’ll become another Judith Blegen, the violinist-turned-Met

Brian Owen puts in an inspired comic performance as Truscott of the Yard. Essentially, he’s a self-satisfied, self-righteous rotter: a man with no morals whatsoever, who’s bloatedly moralistic about it. On top of that, he’s a bloviating parody of Sherlock Holmes, complete with deerstalker, pipe and magnifying glass. Truscott starts off with a series of dazzling deductions, but he fails to notice the corpse in the room. It’s a brilliantly written character — and the comic mainspring of the play. Owen brings him to life. Paul Herbig is fine as Meadows, Truscott’s robotic bobby sidekick, mangling the English language or suspects as the need arises. Michael Frishman channels Mr. McLeavy’s increasingly tattered presence. Nurse Fay (Olivia Williamson) cloaks herself in Heaven’s righteousness, as opposed to the State’s. She marries and murders for money while spouting sanctimonious drivel. Her walk doesn’t match her talk, but she never notices. Speaking of talk, “Loot” is stuffed with savagely funny dialogue. Bad people say nice things and it’s funny; hypocrisy is the fuel of farce. Orton didn’t discover that fact. His genius was unplugging the machinery of moral punishment. In the world of his play, crime often pays. It does in the real world, too, after all. That’s the uneasy joke at the play’s heart. And the joke’s on us. — Marty Fugate

Opera soprano, who used her instrumental training to become one of the world’s finest singers.) In the second half, the players did a memorable performance of Mozart’s exposed “Eine kleine Nachtmusik.” As Perlman said before he conducted the work, this may sound like simple music but it’s very difficult and very complex. With Perlman’s help on the podium, the kids got it, especially the richness of the inner voices, and this was a beautifully crafted presentation. They concluded with the outer movements of Mendelssohn’s great octet for strings in the orchestral version. Here, it was the lower voices that soared, especially in the final movement when the basses and cellos positively buzzed with passion and precision. But now we come to the personal part. Toby Perlman and I were both at the High School of Music and Art in New York City at about the same time. That means we’ve known each other for more than a half-century. Her inspiration gave birth to the wondrous PMP. And the party that followed the concert, and included the faculty and students as well as sponsors and PMP Friends, was what making music is all about.

Back in the mid-1960s, Joe Orton, the late, lamented, bad boy British playwright, burned up the theater world with three outrageous farces. (“Outrageous” used in its original, literal sense of inspiring outrage.) “Loot,” the current FSU/Asolo Conservatory production of one of his farces, shows us what the outrage is all about. The play is a slaughterhouse for sacred cows. These include dogged detectives, noble nurses, religion in general, Catholicism in particular, sexual repression, the sanctity of the British family and respect for the dead. The plot? A young lad’s bisexual lover works as an undertaker at a funeral home next to a bank. The pair tunnel into the bank, steal a ton of loot and stash it in a wardrobe in the lad’s house. Unfortunately, a thuggish detective pokes his nose in, pretending to be from the waterworks to avoid the tedious paperwork of search warrants. Er, fortunately, the lad’s mum is dead — the victim of a serial killer nurse. To avoid detection, the lads stuff the money in the coffin, and they put the corpse in the wardrobe. Corpse and money change places repeatedly. A glass eye rolls away. Human rights are abused, and common decency violated. This goes on for a while as Orton dials the outrage up to 11. Ultimately, the guilty are rewarded and the innocent punished. This truncated summary may sound hilarious, but it doesn’t really say why it’s so hilarious on stage. Orton, for want of a better term, plays it straight. (His material reminds me of that Monty Python undertaker sketch where the bereaved son is informed they can bury, burn or dump his mother — and nobody ever cracks a smile.) Director Jonathan Epstein plays it straight, too. No winking, mugging, elbows to the ribs or giggles. He offers us an absurd, amoral, bizarro-world universe where black is white, good is bad and up is down — and nobody seems to notice. (Except for the one innocent person who gets what’s coming to him.) Nobody in this comedy knows they’re in a comedy, and that’s why the comedy works. Bravo. Epstein’s comic timing is equally sharp — a clockwork outrage, if you will. The reactions, pauses, double-takes and slow burns are all perfect. Kudos also for movement coach Eliza Ladd and fight choreographer Brian Nemiroff for the flow of bodies in space. This staging is as much a dance as a performance. As to the second-year conservatory student actors, they all seem to be having the time of their lives. Jory Murphy and Matthew Anderson

MUSIC // The Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota Just before the Christmas holiday, the Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota had a particularly busy weekend; it produced three different programs in two days at the Historic Asolo Theater. We attended two of them: a semi-staged version of Menotti’s “Amahl and the Night Visitors” and a variety show called “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” featuring “Annie” star Andrea McArdle. The performances shared some of the same singers and, except for a couple of imports such as McArdle, most of the talent was local and, for the most part, non-professional. The afternoon performance of “Amahl,” for example, featured Le Voci di Venezia, an accomplished group of high school singers from Venice High under the direction of a rather self-effacing Stephen Johns. These talented young students had a lovely blend, excellent diction and paid special attention to well-accented rhythms with a wide dynamic range. There were also some excellent, though unnamed, soloists. “Amahl,” one of the wonders of mid-20th century television operas, didn’t come off quite so well, but it was still good to hear it again. Performed in costume with minimal staging and little theatricality or emotion, it was well sung, and we couldn’t help thinking it would have come off better in a simple concert setting. Although Amahl is supposed to be a young shepherd boy, Andrea Guaita, a 12-year-old local girl who sings with the Sarasota Young Voices and plays violin with the Sarasota Youth Orchestra, sang the role attractively. She’s an exceptionally musical singer with good diction, and it will be interesting to follow her path. Deborah Berioli, a local soprano, sang the role of the Mother

“Annie” star Andrea McArdle performed in the Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota’s variety show “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” at the Historic Asolo Theater.

Sarasota’s Maria Wirries, 16, was featured in two songs in the Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota’s variety show “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.”

with a rich, mellow sound that managed the low tessitura of the part (originally written for a mezzo), quite well. Tenor Christopher Culpepper and baritones Anthony Offerle and Todd Donovan suitably performed the roles of the three kings, with 19-year-old Jose Guaita as the Page. Pianist Mary Jeanne Moorman and flutist Michael Alegria, who offered clarity and support to the singers, accompanied the piece, originally scored for small orchestra. And members of Le Voci di Venezia played the chorus of peasants. “Amahl” is a particularly dramatic opera that, through Menotti’s music and libretto

(yes, he wrote it all), shows us one of the minor miracles of Christmas: a young peasant boy who, through faith, is able to cast aside his crutch, walk, run and even jump. It has wonderful arias for almost everyone, tuneful, beautiful melodies that further the plot and take us to a time when miracles were both astonishing and commonplace. It’s a beautiful story set to sublime music, and we commend the Artist Series for bringing it back to us and introducing it to youngsters who may not have encountered it before. “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” which we attended the next evening, was

less than wonderful because, like many talent-show-type events, it was a hodgepodge of miscellany centering around popular Christmas songs performed by a muddle of performers, some more winning than others. McArdle, who is now 50, has less voice than she had at 14 and seemed to have trouble not only sustaining her higher notes, but also making any real emotional connection with the audience. She’s professional. She looks good. But there’s an emptiness about her performance that I found rather sad. What used to be remarkable and cute is now hollow and tired. Maybe it was a bad night for her. Some of the other acts were more positive. A quartet of singers (Johanna Fincher, Amy Connours, Baron Garriott and Timothy O’Connor) from Gloria Musicae had an excellent blend and sound in a group of well-known carols, especially the Wilhousky setting of “Carol of the Bells,” which was originally arranged for a massive chorus and is particularly difficult for four solo voices. Sixteen-year-old local superstar, Maria Wirries, was featured in two songs, including a lovely new work by James Grant called “Christmas Comes Tomorrow.” Deborah Berioli returned with songs by Alec Rowley and Joaquin Nin, and Todd Donovan, who had played King Balthazar in “Amahl” the day before, was barely recognizable as himself in carols and pop songs. The three distinguished pianists performing with the singers were Lee Dougherty Ross, Alan Corey and, doubling as pianist/ musical director, Steve Marzullo. We should mention one funny moment when Berioli began one of a set of Nin’s “Villancicos” in a Spanish dialect. As do most of these charming songs, this one begins with the syllables “ah” and “ee” (spelled “A-iiii”). A gentleman a few seats away from us said rather loudly, “Can’t understand a word.” Ah, the joys of trying to impress an audience. — June LeBell

hana, the spectacular new home on Longboat Key, is more than the just the most expensive property in town. It’s also a glimpse into Sarasota’s future, where one-of-a-kind showplace homes are already beginning to lure the world’s super rich to our corner of Florida. Every day, it seems, writers and photographers show up to document the home’s design for the media. A TV crew from Qatar is preparing a feature. And real estate bloggers from all over the world are chiming in with gushing praise. For Sarasotans, Ohana has

a special significance. Here is something new. It’s like a page is being turned, from the hermetically sealed Mediterranean mansions of the past to something much more elegant and sophisticated. Ohana celebrates two of Sarasota’s greatest glories — its modernist architecture and its beach lifestyle. Here, no matter the price of the home — and Ohana is listed at $22 million — chances are the lucky owner still has a little sand in his very expensive shoes. *** Ohana was built by a wealthy Canadian family who lavished

three years and a medium-size fortune on getting their dream home just right. They hired Guy Peterson — definitely Sarasota’s architect of the moment — to design the home, builder Michael Walker to execute the structurally complicated plans, and renowned landscape designer Raymond Jungles (yes, that’s his real name) to turn the two-and-a-half acres of beachfront into a tropical resort. And “resort” is the key word here. Ohana feels like that exclusive getaway in the South Seas that you sometimes stumble across online: turquoise water,

white sand, and deceptively simple rooms that rely on nature for beauty. And as in a resort, separate areas create retreat-like spaces for privacy while others — the pool, beach, and tennis court — offer conviviality and recreation. The original bones of the compound date back to the 1950s, with a 2,900-square-foot beach home. Peterson turned the structure into a Zen-like guest house, spare and elegant, with large expanses of glass that draw the sea oats and white sand indoors. To one side is a large swimming pool, designed by Jungles, with a shallow “sunning shelf” and

// HOME&GARDEN IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS ...

Handcrafted teak cabinets add warmth to the kitchen. Countertops are granite.

A tennis court and a private seawall are among the estate’s special amenities.

The main living area is elegant but informal. Across the terrace lies the master bedroom.

a deeper area for serious swimming. A chickee hut, the local equivalent of the classic tiki hut, covers a portion of the water. The property contains several “chickees” built using the traditional methods and materials of the Miccosukee Indians — palm thatch covering a cypress roof structure. Set a little further inland are the three new pavilions, elevated and connected by outdoor walkways. Farthest south are a guest suite and staff quarters. Next comes the main living area, with a large gathering space more than 40 feet long. The surprisingly small — but very deluxe — kitchen opens off the living area, reinforcing the fact that this is a vacation home for family and friends. A wet bar and a “breakfast nook” — actually the size of a dining room — add flexibility to the space, and a semi-circular media room is tucked off to one side. The northern-most pavilion is Ohana’s tour-de-force, featuring what may well be the most beau-

luxurious and deluxe, which repeat his design theme of wood and stone. The floors in most rooms are white oak set in borders of Philippine shellstone, the oversized interior doors are of Douglass fir and mahogany, and the vaulted ceilings are also clad in carefully detailed mahogany. Built-in cabinets are teak. And there are touches you don’t expect. The home’s glass walls are tinted so as not to confuse newborn turtle hatchlings with bright lighting. There is not just one elevator but two; the one in the master descends directly to the pool and garage. There’s airconditioned parking for seven or eight cars, and a catering facility on the ground level. The most surprising touch is the cleverly hidden powder room near the living area. Hidden behind a sculptural wooden panel, you’d never know it was there. *** Who will buy Ohana? Realtor Deborah Beacham of Michael Saunders & Co., who

Because of the way the structure is situated, the view to the north encompasses several miles of white sand beach with no other houses visible. The master bath is entered through large sliding doors set on ball bearings, rather like an elaborate barn door. There are his and her water closets, each with the “light box” walls that have become a Peterson signature. The bathtub is filled through a waterfall mechanism but it is the shower that provides the real wow factor: it’s 8 by 10 feet, with various sprays, some wall-mounted, and a programmed lighting and sound system. There’s even a window offering a view of the Gulf. Ohana — it means “family” in Hawaiian — is a large home with many distinct spaces, and it was Peterson’s challenge to make everything seem part of the whole. He has done this by using a limited vocabulary of materials, all

is handling the sale, feels it will be someone who, up until now, would have headed for Naples or Palm Beach. In the race to capture the high-profile celebrities and mega-rich CEOs, our neighboring cities to the south and the east have traditionally held the edge. But maybe not anymore. Ohana is raising the bar. Sarasota is now firmly on the radar of the world’s rich and famous, drawn by our informality, our culture and our incredible beaches. And our prices don’t hurt either. Even the rich love a deal. Ohana, with its $22 million price tag, would easily cost twice that in Naples — if you could find something so unique.

White oak floors bordered by Philippine shellstone help unite the home’s design.

Most rooms are capped with vaulted ceilings and clerestory windows.

SARASOTA WINS COVETED AWARDS

W

e’re sure you’ve heard that Business Insider recently named Sarasota as the No. 1 city, for its size, in music and nightlife. Now we’re pleased to report Florida Trend magazine honored 10 Sarasota restaurants with accolades in its annual Golden Spoon Awards, which recognizes the culinary and dining leaders in Florida. Writing about Louies Modern’s Best New award in Florida Trend, Chris Sherman said it “… is hip casual and slamming. Bang into short rib burgers, 48-hour pork chops, wood-oven duck or ease into sweet potato taquitos or spaghetti squash pomodoro. Very smart drinking.” Meanwhile, LM’s older sister, Libby’s Café + Bar, also earned a top honor when it was awarded its fifth Golden Spoon. Writing about Libby’s, Sherman said it is “the (Hillview) neighborhood’s staple for nouveau comfort foods, from sliders of Kobe meatloaf and Velveeta, truffled fries

A SPECIAL NEW YEAR’S TREAT FOR OUR READERS

I

n this new year, as we all scramble resolutions and eggs with equal ardor, I thought I’d share with you part of an email my friend and WQXR colleague, Robert Sherman, sent to me last year. Although Bob loves food, he’s not what you’d call a seasoned chef. Here’s what happened when he attempted what he thought was a fairly simple recipe for banana bread by his late wife, Veronica, who was a fabulous cook.

and pork filet mignon, to Gulf grouper and Mote caviar.” We weren’t aware there was a “nouveau comfort food,” being old-school comf o r t , ourselves, but we’re certainly willing and happy to try it. Perhaps everything old really is new again. About Shore Diner, another Best New restaurant, Sherman wrote, “St. Armands gets a colorful shot of hip Southern California retro and a fresh take on shop-n-chew retail. Sip rubyred cocktails and eat quinoa salad and lobster LGBTs à la Malibu on the patio after eying/buying harem pants, jams, tees and fedoras.” In addition to Libby’s, Derek’s, Mozaic and Selva Grill also received Golden Spoon awards.  After receiving numerous Golden Spoon awards throughout the years, Michael’s On East earned the Hall of Fame award. And Carmel Café, Fleming’s and Roy’s, which all have restaurants in Sarasota, were named Best Brands.

‘DOWNTON ABBEY’ COMES TO TOWN

T

he “Downton Years” are being celebrated at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 17 with a glorious four-course wine dinner in the traditional English style at the magnificent Powel Crosley Estate, 8374 N. Tamiami Trail. Love the TV series? Eat like a Downton lord and lady with smoked duck breasts on puff pastry (with cranberry and mint relish, of course), leek and Stilton cheese soup and a choice of several other sumptuous dishes,

“I warmed up the lemon told me that there was a juice and milk, set it aside, tube inside the spout preand then put the bananas, venting all but a few drops eggs, sugar and butter (I going through. I had to only had 3/4 of a stick, spoon out the soured milk, but who’s counting?) in which by now looked rather the food processor. ‘Whirl curdled, and dump it in. for five seconds,’ it says, “I then read further: ‘Com‘adding soured milk Steven J.

That stumped no ‘whirl,’ only ‘pulse’ and ‘dough.’ me, since I assumed the batter was Dough didn’t sound right, so I pulsed, the glop still in the processor, and I but the thing kept turning on and off, had no idea what sifting meant. I inso I couldn’t pour in the milk. Eventu- tuited that it must mean putting the ally I managed to do it, except nobody flour through some sort of strainer.

including a classic beef tenderloin and Guinness stout demiglace served with a puff pastry crust that will have you untying your corsets and loosening your knickers for a few days to come. Be sure to make a resy, deah, at localwineevents.com/events/ detail/511731/sarasota-taste magazines-downton-abbey-winedinner or 366-7950, or the butler won’t let you in. So I used a pasta drainer, shaking the flour through it into a pie dish, and (tried to) put it into the processor. Maybe 2/3 of it went in, the rest landing on the counter, floor and my shirt. The next line said, ’Add fruit and nuts.’ “Whoops, I had already done that. So, I panicked, and seeing the remaining walnuts, threw those in. Next, it said, ‘Turn into a well-buttered loaf pan,’ but I couldn’t because I used up all the butter. So I sprayed some vegetable oil in the pan, instead, and started ladling in the goop from the processor, removing some globs of flour that had somehow escaped my sifting.

One of Sarasota’s newest and trendiest restaurants, The Blue Rooster, at 1525 Fourth St., started a Sunday gospel brunch a few weeks ago and, between its authentic Southern food and the live, traditional and contemporary spirituals and gospel music, the place is really rocking. Fried chicken, brownsugar glazed ham, sweet catfish fingers, biscuits and red-eye gravy, cheesy grits and fried green tomatoes are just a few of the tasty treats you’ll scarf down while you wrestle with TBR’s signature brunch cocktail, the “Hail Mary,” and swing to the beat of Sister Tsa and the Spirit Singers. If Sunday brunch ain’t enough, ya’ll, remember there’s Southern comfort food and more music — blues, jazz, bluegrass and soul — seven nights a week. Again, make a reservation at blueroostersrq.com or those low-country shrimp and grits will be kissing you bye-bye.

“I won’t bore you with the ghastly details of the mess I left behind, but I took the pan out of the oven, only burning myself slightly in the process, and it looks OK, except for being burned, and I’ll have to figure out how to remove another glob of unsifted flour at the top, that looks like a half-opened eye glaring at me. Maybe I could cover it over with whipped cream (if I had the cream).” We don’t recommend you follow the above, but it works for a really good belly laugh and reminder that not everyone who loves to eat also loves to cook. Hooray for great Sarasota restaurants. Happy New Year!

SOCIAL STUDIES: JEAN WEIDNER GOLDSTEIN Sitting on a couch in Designing Women Boutique, founder and CEO Jean Weidner Goldstein opens up about her life as a dancer, an entrepreneur and a newlywed.

GROWING UP we used to go on

family picnics and campouts — I love to fish; people think that’s so funny. I’m actually a bit of a tomboy. They had trouble putting shoes on me, but the next day I would be performing in a large production looking like a little princess; the day before I was covered in dirt, barefoot, up a tree. I’ve kind of kept that.

I STARTED DANCING when I

was 4 1/2 years old. I had a wonderful teacher, a brilliant teacher, who taught her students how to interpret and act, as well as dance — I was a full artist already as a young child. I loved the fact that my parents used to rehearse and coach us — they were very supportive. My mother made all of my costumes and taught my sister and me to sew. I can sew anything from a tablecloth to a wedding dress.

MY FIRST real professional job

was Stuttgart — they were the leading company in the world at that time. I took a big chance leaving my homeland, my family, my friends and my language. I was working with a company composed of 17 different nationalities — it was like the United Nations of ballet. It was such an amazing experience; I loved my years there. The company had a wonderful musical reputation, I worked in the theater with the opera, the ballet, the dramatics, the symphony, with the artists on new productions. And we had huge budgets — real minks on stage.

It was incredible to be a part of that. I performed in all of the great opera houses of the world for 14 years. Every day when I got out of bed it was so exciting knowing that something great and incredible would happen that day.

IN BALLET, you work with designers all the time, and not just ballet designers. I can remember we had clothing designers that would take a stab at doing a ballet. I was always in the costume department — I loved watching the creative design of the production. But I think it was also living between Paris and Stuttgart that spiked my interest in fashion. Everything was a cut above, everything was so beautiful, the streets, the buildings, the restaurants, everything — it was such an easy style. And my mother being an artist, watching her make my costumes and décor, learning from her at such a young age and being in two companies with the best design — I’ve always loved it. I’ve always been fascinated with sequins, crowns, I loved it and I can do it. I used to make my own costumes, sew on every sequin. I HAD ALWAYS SHOPPED

at secondhand stores in Paris — not the mothball-smelling, grubby secondhand stores, high-end stores with secondhand designer clothing. There is a great deal of taste and style in this community, so I thought, “Let’s do something like that.”

I’M A HARD TASKMASTER

— as a dancer, you’re always correcting what you’re doing wrong. I’ve come to work slightly different with people who aren’t professional dancers. The way I correct (and have been corrected)

any other person to do.” And I live by that. If you’re going to do this, I’ll do it too.

I’M PERHAPS BUSY too

is taken as criticism to someone else. People need that feeling that you are aware of what they are giving forth. The biggest lesson I’ve learned is knowing how to thank people. There are thousands of shoulders on which we stand and we must appreciate.

STRATEGIC PLANNING, that’s

how I handle my companies, my businesses. It’s like choreography — everything must be planned out, a business plan is all about organization, it’s as if you are putting together a choreographed dance.

MY DAD TAUGHT ME, “If

you’re going to lead, you can’t lead from the rear. You have to be up front, doing what you expect

much at times — too involved. I’ve had to let go a little. Being newly married, I have to be able to devote a little more time to my husband — being with him, having fun together. It’s nice now with Skype and Facebook, I can be available for a meeting or whatever, but be anywhere.

WE ENJOY YACHTING. He’s

got a new boat that he loves and he is just enjoying it — I think if he had his way he’d never come back again and he’d be on the boat. We are going to spend a few months in the Mediterranean this summer, visit a few different places; the trip will really just evolve as we go.

ALFRED AND I have been married one year. He’s a great philanthropist. We’ve been friends for

25 years. He’s a brilliant man — he has a work ethic I understand.

I’VE COLLECTED vintage gowns for many years — I have a few of those. I love embroidery work. I was in Turkey and I bought this beautiful split sleeve jacket with heaving embroidery, on a heavy black base, just amazing. I’ve kept pieces for many years. But really, I’m a pant girl. And I like a pant that can move, that I can move around in. THERE ARE SO MANY wonderful people in this community — dedicated people trying to give back. And that’s a very American thing, giving back. You don’t see that in other countries, at least nothing like what we do in this country. I still sometimes shake my head and can’t believe the generosity here — and I believe, that if you took everything away that is volunteer-based, the country would come to a standstill.
