An update on the fiscal neutrality review of the 2050 Plan, action on the homelessness front, news from the U.S. Army Corps of En- gineers on the Lido Renourishment Project and conviviality and controversy on Siesta Key — yes, it has been another busy week. Add to that mix an interview with the artist behind the rivet- ing exhibit Kin Killin' Kin at the North Sarasota Library and a wonderful recounting of the Ringling Town Hall Lecture Series program, and I feel we have another very well-rounded issue for the week. Although the County Commission sessions were shorter Tuesday and Wednesday, they still managed to cover a lot of ground. For example: County Editor Roger Drouin was prescient in his Jan. 24 profile of Tom Harmer, with the County Com- mission this week asking Harmer to stay on as administrator without the "interim" part of the title. I also highly commend to you City Editor Stan Zimmerman's analysis of community action over the past year in regard to the homeless- ness issues. It is a superb companion to Rog- er's article on the same topic. And this is one of those periods when Siesta news just keeps popping up all over the place — so much so, I could not manage to cover it all this week. Finally, I wanted to take this opportunity to offer special thanks for Copy Editor Vicki Chatley. Not only does she save me from all sorts of ghastly mistakes in my stories, but she also is an excellent writer, as you will see again in From behind the camera. Editor and Publisher WELCOME
