LOOKING BACK YEAR IN REVIEW: FEBRUARY The sign for beer is clearly visible at a concession window on Siesta Public Beach. File photo FEB. 3 Residents of the Siesta Cove Association ask for the help of the Siesta Key Association in seeking state action to reduce speeding along a portion of Midnight Pass Road where Donna Chen was killed by an allegedly drunken driver on Jan. 7. At the minimum, Steven Grantham said, association members want to see radar signs installed on both approaches to the curve, to warn people when they are exceeding the posted 34 mph speed. Sara- sota County Commissioner Nora Patterson, who was attending the SKA meeting, says the commission already has asked county staff to work with the Florida Department of Transportation on additional safety measures for that stretch of road. Additionally, during the first full week of February, commission Chairwoman Christine Robinson is scheduled to meet with members of Chen���s family, which is seeking a ban on sales and consumption of alcohol on county beaches.
