Dogs with the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office got a little safer, and cooler, recently thanks to a crowdfunding effort. Judy Braham of Venice launched the fundraising effort to buy five ballistic vests for the K-9 Unit’s four-legged deputies. The new vests are lightweight enough for the dogs to wear throughout a shift. The old vests caused the dogs to overheat.

City backs tax increase DAVID CONWAY DEPUTY MANAGING EDITOR

Photos by David Conway

St. Armands Circle merchants have expressed concern that the implementation of paid parking, set to take place in December, will scare away potential visitors if other commercial areas like downtown have free on-street spaces.

Circling back to paid parking DAVID CONWAY DEPUTY MANAGING EDITOR

A

s a divided City Commission debated Monday the best way to close a budget gap nearing $900,000, none of the board members expressed interest in a proposal staff said could generate $310,000 in net revenue next year. That proposal? Paid parking on Main Street and Palm Avenue. It’s a controversial prospect in the city — one the commission backed away from last October, but didn’t quite rule out. At the very least, city officials are not eager to discuss the prospect of paid parking downtown. That reticence remains in place even after staff produced a report recommending parking meters in high-demand locations in the city’s core. The opposition is connected to a failed effort in 2011 to create a paid parking program downtown. The idea that paid parking is a controversial subject in Sarasota isn’t new. But it has recently become a point of concern for business owners on St. Armands Circle, who have already committed to a paid parking system in the commercial district set to launch at the end of the year. Merchants in the area are worried about the prospect of doing business in the only area of Sarasota where visitors are required to pay to park. Beginning in 2015, St. Armands leaders said they were willing to accept paid parking to help fund a long-desired parking garage project, which is under construction. Those leaders saw paid parking as an inevitability citywide. In 2016, the City Commission adopted a comprehensive parking strategy that recommended parking meters downtown. Staff developed a strategy for where to place the meters and began researching equipment. The goal was to establish paid parking downtown by 2017. “It’s not a question of if we’re

The city has selected two different pieces of paid parking equipment for installation on St. Armands Circle later this year.

going to put paid parking in,” Marty Rappaport, then co-chairman of the St. Armands Business Improvement District, said in 2016. “I think we’re one of the very few cities of our size that don’t have paid parking.” But gradually, support fell apart. Downtown merchants spoke up against paid parking. The process of searching for a vendor to provide meters took longer than expected. Before staff was prepared to finalize a plan, two new commissioners took office. Last fall, the reconfigured board reversed course, instead encouraging staff to explore other opportunities for reducing a parking deficit that’s set to top $630,000 next year. City Parking Manager Mark Lyons said paid parking downtown was never an explicit condition of the St. Armands paid parking program. Still, he said he understood the concern of the Circle merchants. City administrators said staff intends to once again discuss parking revenue options —

including downtown on-street paid parking — with the commission in the fall. City Manager Tom Barwin said officials are sensitive to the concerns of downtown merchants. But he anticipated the community could become more receptive to the idea as downtown continues to grow, increasing the demand for the existing parking supply. “Additional pressure on the street may force the issue this year or next year,” Barwin said. Irrespective of what happens downtown, Lyons believes that paid parking can be an effective tool for St. Armands Circle. The preliminary city budget projects the initiative will generate more than $1 million in revenue. Lyons said paid parking will improve circulation in prime spots in front of business and decrease traffic congestion associated with drivers circulating to find a space. The future of parking management in the city is a policy decision the commission will ultimately settle. Lyons indicated he believed the city still has work to do in terms of establishing a comprehensive parking policy that will be sustainable for the long term. He pointed to mid-2000s master plans that recommended construction of parking garages, installation of on-street parking meters and more. “The difficulty, of course, is that we pick certain things that we would do and other things that we didn’t do,” Lyons said. “It’s become costly because of that. Now, we have to look it more holistically instead of thinking there’s just one answer.” Whether that holistic approach will include expanded downtown paid parking remains to be seen. Merchants on St. Armands Circle will be watching for a resolution.

MAKING MONEY At Monday’s budget workshop, staff outlined some options for reducing a $633,912 deficit in the parking fund for fiscal year 2018-19. Other than installing parking meters downtown — an option the commission has not shown interest in pursuing — staff presented information on additional revenue that could be generated by reducing the amount of free time offered in the State Street and Palm Avenue parking garages. Those adjustments would generate less revenue than on-street meters, the presentation showed, though no single change would eliminate the deficit altogether. Here’s how the options broke down: Decrease free time in garages to two hours — $49,814 Decrease free time in garages to one hour — $107,396 Decrease free time in garages to fifteen minutes — $202,393 Install meters on Main Street and Palm Avenue — $310,000

The city is poised to raise its property tax rates for the first time in five years. The City Commission voted 3-2 Monday in support of staff’s proposed $229 million budget for fiscal year 2018-19. The planned expenditures represent a 13.3% increase over last year’s budget. The city’s general fund budget is set to grow from $66.8 million to $73 million, a 9.3% increase. To cover an $875,000 budget gap, the city is proposing a general fund millage rate increase from 3.1728 to 3.2632. The revenue generated from the 2.9% increase — $914,546 — would equal the city’s projected expenses for managing parks previously under county control. The tax increase would represent an additional $18.08 in taxes on a property with a taxable value of $200,000. At earlier budget meetings, the commission directed staff to research opportunities for cutting the budget to avoid a millage rate increase. Staff proposed two reductions: eliminating $250,000 for police body cameras, and eliminating $100,000 for cityowned security cameras. The changes would not balance the budget on their own. In lieu of a tax increase, staff said the city could use reserve funds to balance the budget, though staff recommended against that option. Commissioners Shelli Freeland Eddie and Hagen Brody voted against the proposed budget. Freeland Eddie presented a series of potential cuts that included eliminating four full-time and four part-time positions proposed for the parks department. “We can’t fund everything this year,” Eddie said. Mayor Liz Alpert, Vice Mayor Jen Ahearn-Koch and Commissioner Willie Shaw voted in favor of the budget. The commissioners saw the spending increases as reasonable, and Alpert expressed concern cuts would reduce service levels too much. “I think this goes too far, and it doesn’t really cover what we need to have covered,” Alpert said of Freeland Eddie’s proposal. The commission will set a maximum millage rate at a July 16 meeting. The board will adopt a budget at a pair of public hearings on Sept. 4 and Sept. 17.

BUDGET BREAKDOWN Of the proposed $26.98 million budget increase over last year, $18.16 million is tied to the city’s enterprise funds. These are selfsustaining funds that generate revenues to cover expenditures. Increases include: n $13.6 million in new water and sewer projects. n $880,000 for the city to internally manage recycling operations and enhance solid waste services. n More than $2 million in new parking-related expenses for the St. Armands Circle garage — a project that’s also budgeted to generate new revenues.

The County Commission voted unanimously Wednesday to solicit bids for private companies interested in operating the Sarasota County Area Transit system. The decision moves the county closer to the potential privatization of local bus services. County staff intends to bring back a request for proposals in August. A list of interested operators could be ready for the county to consider toward the end of the year. The board specifically expressed interest in coordinating its search for a private operator with Manatee County, hopeful teaming up would produce increased efficiency. “These economic units are tied together,” Commissioner Paul Caragiulo said.

Preservationists urge city to save GWIZ building Architectural groups want The Bay to consider repurposing the bayfront structure — but do residents? DAVID CONWAY DEPUTY MANAGING EDITOR

As the city considers adopting a master plan for redeveloping more than 53 acres of bayfront land, the fate of a vacant 33,444-squarefoot building looms large in the mind of at least one official. City Commissioner Jen Ahearn-Koch has been a vocal advocate for the preservation of the former GWIZ building, located at 1001 Boulevard of the Arts. The building has been without a tenant since 2013, when the children’s science museum confirmed it was closing permanently. In 2014, the city decided not to seek a new occupant, instead waiting for the results of what was then a newly hatched, community-driven bayfront planning effort. The structure sits on a swath of city-owned land at the center of The Bay Sarasota’s efforts to revitalize the waterfront near downtown. Since The Bay began producing concepts for redesigning the property earlier this year, the GWIZ building has not been included in any vision for the future of the site. For Ahearn-Koch, that’s a point of concern. At a June commis-

sion meeting, she urged The Bay to explore options for preserving the building, which dates to 1976. “I don’t see any reason why it can’t be repurposed and fit into the plan and used,” Ahearn-Koch said. Bill Waddill, The Bay’s managing director, said several factors led to the decision to propose demolition. In 2016, city staff reported the structure needed $300,000 in repairs and cost $44,000 to maintain annually. At that time, the city researched the possibility of demolishing the building, but instead deferred any decision until the bayfront plan was complete. City staff said the building was vulnerable to flooding and possible sea-level rise. The property

is also subject to FEMA regulations that limit the amount of money that can be can invested into structures built below modern elevation minimums. Even more importantly, Waddill said The Bay hasn’t heard much public support for preserving the building. Waddill said 20% to 25% of respondents to a March survey advocated for the preservation of the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall when The Bay was considering removing that structure. Based on that feedback, The Bay incorporated the Van Wezel into its plans. The same can’t be said for the GWIZ building. “It was about 1% or 2% that even mentioned the GWIZ,” Waddill said. “And of those who mentioned it, a number of them

said, ‘Tear it down.’” In the latest bayfront master plan, the site of the GWIZ building is part of a “recreation pier” along Boulevard of the Arts. Waddill said the proposal reflects a community desire for open space and increased waterfront access. “We think there’s a higher, better use long term for that site,” Waddill said. Ahearn-Koch said the architectural and design community has asked The Bay to research options for repurposing the structure. She’s gathered letters sent from organizations including the Sarasota Architectural Foundation, the Center for Architecture Sarasota and the American Institute of Architects Gulf Coast Chapter.

All of them urge the bayfront planning group to give more consideration to preservation. One of them comes from Lorrie Muldowney, president of the Sarasota Alliance for Historic Preservation and former manager of the Sarasota County History Center. Muldowney said there are architectural and historic arguments for saving the building. Originally built as the Selby Library, the structure is the only one in Sarasota designed by renowned architecture firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill. She thinks the argument goes beyond design considerations, too. She believes the building’s connection to the city’s past makes it an important part of the community’s fabric, a legacy worthy of being maintained. “The building does represent a public investment, and it does contribute to the sense of our community,” Muldowney said. “I would just like to feel we really had explored all options fully before it was taken down.” Although the campaign for preservation may hold sway with some key figures in Sarasota, Waddill said The Bay’s plans will continue to reflect what the public has shared. Based on what the group has heard so far, that doesn’t include a strong desire to save the GWIZ building. “We believe we need to try to understand what our guiding principles are and advance a master plan that represents the majority consensus,” Waddill said.

DID grows flower Umbrella House nominated basket program for national designation The 1950s Lido Key home is a defining work of the Sarasota School of Architecture.

DAVID CONWAY DEPUTY MANAGING EDITOR

More flower baskets will be sprouting up this summer around downtown. In June, the Downtown Improvement District voted unanimously to place an additional 40 baskets on light poles throughout the heart of the city. The decision expands the Downtown in Bloom campaign launched in summer 2016 as a beautification project. DID Chairman Ron Soto said he was pleased with the project. “The amount of money we’ve put out there for what we get back on them?” Soto said. “I think it’s well worth the investment. Matter of fact, this is probably one of the best things we’ve ever done.” The DID previously placed 150 flower baskets on light poles within its boundaries, with an initial cost of $187,680 for installation and maintenance. The 40 new baskets will cost $23,320 to install and $33,950 to maintain through June 2019. The new flower baskets will be scattered throughout downtown. They include eight baskets near the Art Ovation Hotel and Palm Avenue garage, seven in the 1200 block of First Street and at least six near Five Points Park and the Sarasota Opera House. DID Operations Manager John Moran said the group was working to fill in areas — particularly

near commercial properties that contribute to the self-taxing district — that didn’t get baskets the first time around. “We had some areas that were under construction,” Moran said. “It would have been ill-advised to put flower baskets there; they would have been harmed by the construction dust.” The DID is taking other steps to beautify downtown, too. On July 3, the board voted unanimously to spend $8,800 on quarterly cleanings for alleys near the 1300, 1400 and 1500 blocks of Main Street. The decision came in response to concern that run-off from the alleys was affecting the walkability of downtown, particularly near the Palm Avenue garage. The board also selected Golden Leaf Landscaping Services as the vendor overseeing enhanced maintenance for downtown landscaping. The company bid $16,014 to win the contract for services through July 2019.

A local icon is in line for national recognition. Backed by the state Bureau of Historic Preservation, the Umbrella House has been nominated for a slot on the National Register of Historic Places. The two-story home in Lido Shores, designed by Paul Rudolph and built in 1953, is frequently cited as one of the standout works from the midcentury Sarasota School of Architecture movement. Although dozens of structures within the city are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, most of them date to previous waves of development in the early 1900s. The Umbrella House is set to become one of the few Sarasota School works on the National Register, joining the Rudolph-designed Sarasota High School addition and the Scott Building at 265 S. Orange Ave. The Umbrella House already has a local historic designation, which offers incentives for rehabilitation and requires city review of proposed changes to the home. In 2015, the Umbrella House was renovated to re-create its

namesake “umbrella” structure, designed to shade the residence. City Planner Cliff Smith said the national designation was another way the property owners are attempting to secure the Umbrella House’s historic legacy. On Tuesday, the city’s Historic Preservation Board voted unanimously to endorse the application, which a national committee will consider in August. Smith said the designation would add to the significance of an architectural movement in which the community has taken great pride.

“The Sarasota School of Architecture, that unique form of building that’s indigenous to the city of Sarasota — we’re very happy that’s reached national status,” Smith said. On a local level, city staff is working to create more incentives for preserving historically significant structures. Staff also hopes to update an index of city buildings to include those built in the midcentury period during which the Sarasota School thrived. “We’re looking to make significant advances in historic preservation,” Smith said.

The Pines of Sarasota is celebrating its 70th anniversary.

Care for those who built Sarasota The Pines of Sarasota Foundation needs $1 million annually to support residents who have outlived their resources.

EMILY WALSH

I

n 1938, Frank J. Conrad, Ben Handler and Al Shogren recognized a great need for a place to care for Sarasota’s elderly population that was in poor health and with limited incomes. These three men led the Kiwanis Club of Sarasota in creating, fundraising and building this home that opened Nov. 16, 1948. Seventy years later, that Kiwanis vision is still alive — the Pines of Sarasota Rehabilitation & Senior Care Community, the not-forprofit rehabilitation and senior care community, nestled in the heart of Sarasota on Orange Avenue between 12th and 17th streets. Originally named the Sarasota Welfare Home, the facility began with two residence halls and a dining room. Today, the Pines of Sarasota sits on a 25-acre campus with 19 buildings, housing 243 residents, employing more than 400 people and is at the tail-end of a $3.9 million capital campaign to renovate its assisted living facility. Residing at the Pines are retired teachers, construction workers, police officers, firefighters and performers, many of them former circus entertainers. Janet Ginn, president of the Pines of Sarasota Foundation, says they are the people who helped build Sarasota. More than 50% of these residents have outlived their resources. Ginn shared that Greystone, a trusted adviser in senior living since 1982, conducted a market study in August 2016 and updated it in December 2017

TO GIVE MISSION FUND Call Janet Ginn at 955-6293 or jginn@pinesfoundation. org LOVE LIVES HERE: ASSISTED LIVING RENOVATION Two-to-one match from the Esther & Harold Mertz Foundation continues until Dec. 31.

noting the Pines was the largest provider of beds to Medicaid residents in Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte counties. “It takes about $7,500 annually per person above and beyond what Medicaid pays to take care of them,” she says. To cover the shortfall, the Pines needs to raise $1 million a year. That’s why the Pines of Sarasota Foundation, which supports the Pines’ endowment, capital and program needs, established the Mission Fund. The fund enables Pines residents who have outlived their resources to continue to receive care and have a safe place to live. Many of the beneficiaries of the Mission Fund came to the Pines as paying residents. They range in age from 80 to 105. Ginn says most often there are three primary contributors to residents finding themselves with no means: longevity, health care costs and poor planning. The number of elderly in similar circumstances is expected to mushroom. Over the next three decades, the population aged 65 and over is projected to be 83.7 million, with baby boomers largely responsible for the increase. “It’s a different world,” says John Raleigh, a certified financial planner with Sarasota-based Raleigh & Associates. “Twentyfive years ago, people would retire at 65 and expect to die at

73 or 74. Now when you retire, your retirement is about the same amount of time that you worked.” “That’s why the Mission Fund is more important today,” says Ginn. “We never want anyone to apologize for living too long. Living a long life should be celebrated. Pines offers peace of mind not only for the resident, but also for families.” But let’s be honest, it is expensive to age. Says Raleigh: “If you’re a married couple, you need $250,000 to $300,000 put in place for health care or potential health care costs. And that’s a substantial portion of people’s retirement funds.” Oftentimes, taking care of the health care costs of an ill spouse drained the resources of many Pines residents. What’s more, Ginn says, these residents also have children in their late 70s and early 80s dealing with their own health issues and related costs, leaving them unable to contribute to their parents’ care. Ginn is careful to point out the people outliving their resources weren’t frivolous with their money. They were working-class people who didn’t have a 401(k) or used what money they had to put their children through college. Raleigh says it’s tough for people to believe how much they need to set aside for retirement and that outliving their resources won’t happen to them. “As an industry,” he says, “we’re still not doing a good job helping people see the reality of it. It’s scary.” To a great extent, that’s why the Pines exists — to fill the need those visionary Kiwanians saw 70 years ago. “We want to give individuals who have longevity a peaceful, loving life,” says Ginn. While the Pines of Sarasota Foundation is just about $200,000 away from meeting its $3.9 million goal for its Assisted Living Renovation, Ginn says, “Where our needs are now is for the Mission Fund.” The Mission Fund campaign begins Aug. 1 and will conclude Dec. 31 with a goal of $1 million for the 2019 shortfall of Pines.

Pedestrian overpasses: Not the answer Previous studies show not that many people actually want to cross Tamiami Trail by foot.

BY RODGER SKIDMORE

A

bout 10 years ago, the Sarasota Observer published an article citing a study done in downtown Sarasota. The study was about access to the areas west of U.S. 41 — Bayfront and Centennial parks. Much discussion before the study, in print and at public meetings, centered around the supposed inability of those wishing to get to Bayfront Park and Centennial Park. The first part of the study was about conditions relative to crossing Tamiami Trail at the time those feelings were at their highest. Timings done for the study showed that a person using a walker or wheelchair could cross in the time allotted before traffic started up again — if they began at the start of crossing cycles. The second part of the study was about the need (or desire) for people even to attempt to cross U.S. 41. Those to the east of U.S. 41 were asked if they knew about the attractions west of Tamiami Trail, and did they wish to go there if they could do so easily. Those who knew about the parks

said they enjoyed them but did not wish to go at that time. They said they were busy shopping, visiting galleries, going to the movies or library, having lunch, etc. They did not have time nor energy to go to both areas in the same day. Those in the parks along the bay were asked similar questions: When they were finished relaxing along the bayfront, did they wish to cross U.S. 41 and spend time there? The answers were uniform: No, I’ll enjoy myself here and then return home. Residents and tourists alike have limited time, even when doing nothing and just wandering around. They pick one place to go or one activity to pursue. The only people who did go to both were those knowing threehour parking was allowed around Marina Jack’s rather than the two hours allowed downtown. So why all the discussion about the “inability” to cross Tamiami Trail? There are two schools of thought. The first being that many urban planners see parks as underutilized. If people aren’t in the park, something must be stopping them. If parks are on the other side of some divide, the divide is at fault. Hence the need to bridge that divide with something like a bridge. If the bridge, overpass, underpass or magic flying carpet was there, thousands more people would cross over and properly use the park. But spending millions on a wished-for result is not always the wisest course. It also became evident that part of the question being raised about crossing U.S. 41 were discussions about the roundabouts being proposed from 14th Street around to where Orange and Osprey intersected Mound. The City Commission wanted to slow traffic along the bayfront

CONTESTED PROTEST 2:40 p.m. — 400 block of North Washington Boulevard Dispute: A store employee reported that a customer was outside the store protesting the business because she was disgruntled over a recent sale. The employee said the store had been receiving numerous bad ratings online from unidentified sources. An officer spoke to the customer, who said she was there to protest her recent purchase of a vehicle. She was aware she could not enter the property and was staying on the sidewalk. The officer later spoke to an owner, who said he was attempting to take legal action to stop the protest. Both parties were informed the matter was a civil dispute and they should contact an attorney if further issues arise.

LOSING HIS SHIRT 11:56 a.m. — 1500 block of North Washington Boulevard Dispute: The manager of an auto repair store called the police about an employee who was chasing him around the building. An officer met with the manager, who said the employee left several minutes before the officer’s arrival. The manager said he questioned the employee about some things and the employee became angry, tearing off his shirt and chasing the manager before leaving. While the officer was gathering information, the employee called the store. The manager gave the officer the phone. The officer said the employee was still irate and would not stop speaking long enough for the officer to say the manager was no longer on the phone. After the officer successfully identified himself, the employee continued to go on a tirade until the officer hung up the phone. The employee called back several times before the officer left the property. On the instructions of the manager, the officer told the employee not to return as he was effectively fired from the business. The officer told the manager to call the police if the employee returned.

So our crews can mark down every item in the store!

so people who did not want to cross Tamiami Trail would have time to do so, even though they already had enough time, based on how traffic lights were timed. The proposed roundabouts would slow traffic but would make it more difficult for people to cross 41. Some, seeing that as a problem, suggested an overpass rather than traffic lights, which were being eliminated. Now The Bay is suggesting three overpasses (costing millions) be built just for people crossing U.S. 41 to the new Centennial Park. One: Just who are these people wanting to walk to the park? Two: Isn’t there going to be a two-story parking garage in the park? If people aren’t crossing U.S. 41 because they perceive it is hard to cross (even when it isn’t), wouldn’t changing the perception be easier (and cheaper) than building three overpasses? Building larger traffic islands in the center of Tamiami Trail, where the city wants people to cross, coupled with much larger signs showing the amount of time left to cross, would let even the slowest person know he could make it. And if he couldn’t make it across in time, would not standing in a large landscaped place in the middle be more attractive than walking a greater distance up a long wheelchairaccessible inclined ramp. Safety is an issue. Those not taking the longer route, who jaywalk, are at risk of being hit by unsuspecting drivers. And, if the city is, as it says it is, putting roundabouts at those intersections, aren’t they the large traffic islands where people could wait to finish crossing Tamiami Trail without the need for an overpass?

should have been star-struck. After all, Ilardi scored a 95 and won the Roller Coaster event, which features a 300-meter slopestyle ramp with street, bowl and megaramp elements. It was the most recent instance of Ilardi showing his star potential, but not the first. Ilardi is ranked 14th-best in the world by The Boardr, a top skateboard organization, and holds a seat on the board of World Skate (the sport’s governing body). He wasn’t on the global radar 18 months ago. Back then, he worked at Publix while taking part in local competitions and occasionally traveling out of state to skate. Then he got a chance to skate in Montreal’s “Am Getting Paid” event in September 2017, and everything changed. He won, hitting a “540” and a “big flight front board” in the same run. He took home $10,000 from that event, and for the first time his dream of making a living off skateboarding seemed within reach. He’s in the “transitional” stage now, he said, but he’s made enough off skateboarding (The Boardr has his 2018 earnings at $60,750) to move to Los Angeles, which he did in March. That’s skating mecca, he said, and as much as he thanks Sarasota for all it’s done for him, he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to head west. Ilardi has wanted a pro skateboarding career since he was 4, when his grandmother Paulette Moulton bought him and his twin brother, Nate Ilardi, their first skateboards. They pushed those around for four years, doing

tricks off the half-pipe their family built. When the boys turned 8, they bought their first “real” boards at Compound Boardshop in Osprey and conquered the bowls of Payne Park. Eventually, Nate moved more into the skate photography realm, and now runs his own business, Ilardi Media. Jake never got off the board. “I would watch the C1RCA (Footwear) video compilations of pros and then just skate, skate, skate. All the hard working is paying off,” he said. It’s been an explosion of popularity for Ilardi since the Montreal event. His social media presence has ballooned from 5,828 Instagram followers on Sept. 30, 2017, to 16,410. A video uploaded to YouTube on June 12 titled “Jake Ilardi — Where The (expletive) Did This Guy Come From?!” has approximately 43,000 views. He’s using his platform to tell people the general perception of skaters is wrong. “We’re stereotyped,” Ilardi said. “People think we’re bad and we vandalize things, do drugs, etc. That’s not the case. A few bad apples ruin it for everyone.” Skateboarding will be featured in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, and Ilardi said it would be “an honor” to represent his country at the event. There are eight Americans ahead of him on The Boardr’s global rankings. If he qualifies well through the Street League, he has a real shot to make it. “As long as I’m still skating, I’m happy,” Ilardi said.

PROSE AND KOHN

RYAN KOHN

Playing hardball

T

he Observer softball team exited Fruitville Park’s softball field No. 2 on Sunday the same way we had all season — in defeat. I don’t say this in shame. We knew when we signed up to play in SoCo Club Sports’ Sunday league that winning would be a tall task. The majority of the team members had never played softball before, and those who had, myself included, had last played two presidents ago. It started, uh, bad, with a 32-0 loss, and it is here I must remind you we were playing softball, where each score counts for a single run, and not, say, football. While the pitching and defense would improve, that zero would haunt us for a bit. In fact, it took us until our fifth game to score a run, when we scored five in what was easily our best game of the year (we still lost 17-5). But we persevered, and even though we remained winless, there were some lessons learned I think everyone will carry with them through the rest of their softball-less lives, because let’s be honest, I’m never going to get them to play with me again. I learned that SoCo Club Sports takes its rules seriously. Before the season, the team purchased a brand new bat — the DeMarini Dinger Slinger, to be exact. I can neither confirm nor deny that I bought it solely for its name, but either way, the thing also carried some serious heft

and, thus, power. Things were going great on the bat front until game seven of our season, when SoCo officials did a bat check for the first time all year and discovered the bat was not supported by the American Softball Association, and SoCo falls under its jurisdiction. Despite being approved by every other softball league, the bat was banned. We were forced to borrow our opponents’ bats for two games before finding an old, approved one to use. Now, I’m not trying to call SoCo out for banning the bat. It’s the league rule, and the league has every right to enforce it. What I am saying is I miss the Dinger Slinger greatly, and I encourage everyone to try saying it out loud, just for fun. I learned that the bat comes back much easier than the glove, as least for me. At the plate, I was able to recapture much of my former timing and heatseeking swing, old bat or new. Playing the field was a chore, with my dilapidated body (I’m 23) struggling to get all the way down for ground balls or stretch for balls hit down the foul line. As a team, our defense improved much more than our hitting. I’m not sure why this contrast existed, but I found it interesting. I learned that coaching is ever more difficult than playing. Forget about running drills in practice; finding a time when

The Observer softball team tried its best, and that’s all you can really ask of us.

everyone could even show up was an exercise in futility. Journalists don’t exactly work 9 to 5. When we did practice, my tips on hitting more or less boiled down to “Keep your eye on the ball,” which is a fancier way of saying “try harder.” We did run some pickle drills, which were the highlight of the whole thing for me personally. I felt like I failed my teammates in my overall instruction, but when I asked a few of them recently, Black Tie reporter Kayleigh Omang said I was “encouraging” and Longboat Observer Community Editor Katie Johns called my leadership style “determined and positive.” I then asked them to roast me and none of them

would do it. That’s something, I guess, because … I learned that none of the above matters as much as us enjoying making fools of ourselves. After every game, we would sit for an hour at the park’s picnic tables and drain the last of our game day beers. We’d talk about who the game’s MVP was, recap any crazy plays and, like any self-respecting team, complain about the myriad calls that went against us. We were the Bad News Bears of the SoCo rec league, except we never got good, and that’s OK. I love my teammates more than ever, and I hope you’ll still respect us as journalists despite our failings on the field. I’d also

encourage each of you to join a league. Softball is a challenging sport to play, but it’s the stumbles that bring people together, and I suspect you’ll have more fun than you think you will. Just make sure to use an ASA bat. Once you go Dinger Slinger, there’s no going back.

Aaron Whitley will be a sophomore on the Riverview High girls golf team this fall. She won the 13-15 division of the Florida State Golf Association’s Girls Junior Amateur Championship at Bent Pine Golf Club in Vero Beach on June 29, shooting a three-round total of 216. When did you start playing golf? When I was 10, and I got serious around 12. My dad (Kent Whitley) played, and when I was bored one day he took me to the driving range. I fell in love with it right away. What is the appeal to you? I’m a competitive person. I want to win and be good at everything I do. I happened to be naturally good at golf. What is your best skill? I’ll say my short game. I’m a wellrounded player, so there’s not specifically one area that stands out, but my short game helped me win (the Girls Junior Amateur Championship). Did you expect to win the championship? No. (laughs.) Last year, I didn’t even make the cut, so my mom (Danielle Whitley) didn’t pay for a third night at our hotel this year. I have improved a lot since last year, though. I have been working hard in practice and my scores have improved.

partied in our hotel at night, and when I won, they all poured water on me, which was funny. What is the best advice you have received? Have fun! Don’t worry how you play, just have fun. What was the biggest challenge you faced in golf? I used to get nervous when I first started. Teeing up on the first hole was hard. I had to learn to not be so nervous and forget about the pressure on me. It came through more experience. I’m used to it now.

Sarasota Lionfish Derby harvests destructive fish and turns them into delicious dishes.

MOST LIONFISH 1st place: Humpty Dumpty, 244 lionfish 2nd place: ZooKeeper/Proweb, 153 lionfish 3rd place: Got Fish, 88 lionfish

SHANE DONGLASAN COMMUNITY REPORTER

T

eams of divers removed 545 invasive lionfish from the Gulf of Mexico from July 6-8 during Mote Marine Laboratory’s Fifth Annual Sarasota Lionfish Derby. Although that number is lower than last year’s record of 1,079, Lad Akins said he hopes to keep seeing those numbers drop. Akins is the director of special projects for Reef Environmental Education Foundation, which organized the event with Mote. He said the numbers hopefully reflect a decline in lionfish in surrounding waters. Originally from the Pacific Ocean, lionfish are beautiful, yet deadly fish with voracious appetites that decimate local fish populations, including species key to maintaining healthy reefs. Lionfish have few natural predators and reproduce at a faster rate than native species. That’s the reason why organizations such as Mote and REEF encourage divers to collect and remove as many lionfish as possible. This year, seven teams, made up of two to four people, competed to catch the most lionfish, the largest lionfish and the smallest lionfish to win cash prizes ranging from $150 to $1,000. During the final weigh-in event July 8, the public watched as lionfish were counted and measured

by REEF staff and dissected by Mote scientists. Collecting data on local lionfish populations each year helps scientists study population dynamics, behavior and adaptations over time. Team Local4Good, the one team new to the competition, didn’t make a single catch while hunting out in the Sarasota Bay, but leader Roger Landry said that was a good sign that few lionfish have invaded the area. Environmental sustainability is one of the reasons Landry chose to become a vegan a few years ago, and participating in the derby was a way

Help document the lionfish invasion by reporting sightings through REEF or the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. FWC has a Report Florida Lionfish app available for smartphones, and its Lionfish Challenge rewards those who harvest the species. REEF also has a free Lionfish Sightings app for iPhone, which allows people to track and record lionfish sightings all around the invaded region.

for him to hunt and eat lionfish while staying green. “I saw it as a kind of a loophole,” he said. “I can’t feel bad about killing fish, and I’m doing a good thing for the environment, so it was a win-win situation for me.” The derby culminated with a tasting event July 8 to promote the consumption of the destructive, yet delicious fish. Attendees voted for the tastiest dishes prepared by chefs from Michael’s on East, Indigenous, Mattison’s Forty-One, Tableseide Restaurant Group and Mote’s Deep Sea Diner. Chef John Mancini of Deep Sea

Diner said after the fishermen are done removing the lionfish’s venomous spines, it is just like preparing any other fish. “It’s similar to most white fish,” Mancini said. “It’s super delicate and just a tiny bit muddy tasting. It’s not super mild, but not very strong or too oily.” Mancini served a lionfish cake with chipotle aioli on a bed of spaghetti cucumber. “The ultimate goal is to let people know that there is something more that they can do with this fish that is also destroying the habitat out there,” Mancini said.

LARGEST LIONFISH 1st: Humpty Dumpty, 391 mm (15.4 inches) 2nd: Barbarella, 382 mm (15 inches) 3rd: ZooKeeper/ Proweb, 380 mm (14.9 inches) SMALLEST LIONFISH 1st: Got Fish, 98 mm (3.85 inches) 2nd: ZooKeeper/ Proweb, 142 mm (5.6 inches) 3rd: ZooKeeper, 153 mm (6 inches) TOTAL LIONFISH CAUGHT: 545
