IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to a production error, an article appearing in our June 6 issue was incorrectly attributed to David Staats instead of Cooper Levey-Baker, our associate editor and actual author of the article. Mr. Staats was a vol- untary contributor to our publication during our first year, but we no longer have any association with him. Under no circumstances did we intend for any of our readers to believe that any of our articles in that issue were authored by David Staats. We regret the error. From birds to budgets, Warm Mineral Springs to downtown Sarasota, this week has seen its share of disappointing news. I mention this occasionally, but I especially commend to you arti- cles our staff has put together this week about topics covered in other publications. For example, Associate Editor Cooper Levey-Baker has done a masterful job of explaining what happened in regard to Warm Min- eral Springs, with up-to-date details. For another example, County Editor Roger Drouin has no peer in covering the homeless shelter saga. And City Editor Stan Zimmerman has a gift for analysis. For every human who recognizes we share this Earth with many other precious creatures, news from Siesta Key over recent days was tragic. As we "went to press," Sarasota Audubon volun- teers and law enforcement officers were work- ing to find the perpetrator(s) of terrible de- struction in a beach nesting area. On a happier note, new contributor Carolann Cahill offers a delightful look at Mote Marine's celebration of World Oceans Day. Finally, while I fail miserably in plugging the work of editorial cartoonist John Riley, I urge you to check out his latest offering. To say he is gifted is a vast understatement. Editor and Publisher WELCOME
