With the holiday season well under way, we have more features to offer in this issue — from the lovely article by Fran Palmeri (with co-authorship by Laurel Schiller) I mentioned last week to photo essays covering the Thanksgiving dinner for the homeless to Siesta Key's annual Light Up the Village festivities to Selby Gardens' Bromeliad Tree ceremony. Dare you think the news was light, fear not. City Editor Stan Zimmerman must have cloned himself this week. He was all over the place. Associate Editor Cooper Levey-Baker put at the top of our story list Stan's article about a proposal to revitalize the Rosemary District — another coup in coverage for Stan. Not to be outdone, Cooper must have been the only reporter in town to attend the Dec. 4 meeting of the Suncoast Partnership to End Homelessness, and he heard some new points regarding consultant Robert Marbut's recommendations. On the same topic, County Editor Roger Drouin talked to city and county leaders to learn the latest in the steps for implementation of Marbut's proposal. And then there is Bob's Boathouse: I spent not a little time delving into the controversy surrounding that South Tamiami Trail business and its live entertainment. Siesta Key has plenty going on, too. Village Association members were practically giddy this week thanks to putting behind them the very successful Light Up the Village event and the Crystal Classic Master Sand Sculpting Competition. Our issues understandably may be heavier on features over the next couple of weeks, but we will continue to do our best to ferret out the news you need to know. Editor and Publisher
