With the flu running rampant and a lull this week between major local government meetings, it seemed as though some of us on the "news side" started work on this issue with what Associate Editor Cooper Levey-Baker calls "holiday hangover." We need not have worried about finding plenty to cover, though. As the days passed, more things seemed to happen! I do want to pause at this point to say we were most appreciative of all the kind words offered about our Jan. 11 issue. We obviously cannot pick the topics that will arise at meetings or on the features scene, but we do try very hard to give you a good mix of stories — and that seemed to make a lot of readers happy last week. As it turns out, we found a considerable bit of diversity in topics for this issue, too. Some of our stories are follow-ups on matters previously aired, but even among those — especially Cooper's latest report on the Warm Mineral Springs situation — we feel we have plenty of "new news" to make them very interesting. This issue also serves up a good bit of diversity in the Sarasota Leisure section once again. Even Copy Editor Vicki Chatley took another turn on the writer's side of the page, providing a great piece about the Ringling Town Hall lecture this week by Walter Isaacson. Additionally, Tyler Whitson and Arielle Scherr offer the insights they gained into sculptor Patrick Dougherty's work in front of the Sarasota Museum of Art on Tamiami Trail, and Scott Proffitt took the time to attend a lecture on world-renowned architect Paul Rudolph of Sarasota School of Architecture fame. From downtown to Siesta Key, you will see a lot really did happen this week. Editor and Publisher
