Just 5 fewer degrees of bass: That is the plea of neighbors of Bob's Boathouse regarding proposed changes to the Sarasota County Air and Sound Pollution Ordinance. The suggested revisions will be consid- ered during a March 19 public hearing in Sarasota at the County Administration Center, located at 1660 Ringling Blvd. The agenda item is scheduled for the morning session. Jim McWhorter, president of the River Forest Civic Association, and two Montclair Drive residents appeared before the County Commission during the public comments por- tion of the March 4 board meeting to make their case for lowering the maximum bass level reading 5 more degrees for homes on the receiving end of noise. "This is the r o o t c a u s e o f o u r ongoing nightmare," r e s i d e n t M i c h e l e Chapman explained. Homes on Montclair Drive stand across Phillippi Creek from Bob's Boathouse.
