This week is another one of those with a wealth of diverse topics — an abundance of riches, if you will. For several days we have sat on pins and needles, waiting to see whether anyone would beat us to a scoop Associate Editor Cooper Levey-Baker landed: the release of the draft analysis of the fiscal neutrality facet of the county's 2050 Plan. I have seen the story nowhere else as I type this, which means we owe a big debt of gratitude to the source who provided it to us. County Editor Roger Drouin has his own scoop about a big court ruling that went in the county's favor — which will save all of us taxpayers money. City Editor Stan Zimmerman has remained vigilant on topics no one else covers — another tremendous boon to our readers. And so much is happening on Siesta Key, I could not begin to include it all in my latest version of Siesta Seen. This also is another unusual week in terms of our Sarasota Leisure section's bounty: master sand sculptors on Siesta, a heartwarming story about a prison ministry program, another exquisite essay and series of photos from contributor Fran Palmeri, Rick Wielgorecki's monthly gardening advice and two big photo spreads — the latter thanks to Staff Photographer Norman Schimmel, Stan Zimmerman and Robert Hackney. One note I must make, though, is that without the extraordinary skills of Copy Editor Vicki Chatley and Production Manager Cleve Posey, this issue could not possibly pack as much impact.
