If last week seemed a tad dull, this week more than made up for it. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' release of its draft report on the Lido Beach Renourishment Project is just one of many big stories. But if that article is not your cup of tea, you might try Associate Editor Cooper Levey-Baker's story about a tea party candidate who has filed to run against School Board incumbent Jane Good- win. Cooper uncovered quite an interesting tidbit in his research for that piece. And City Editor Stan Zimmerman was all over the place again this week — from learning that city water customers very likely will see their bills go up and up for years on end to covering a hear- ing in Circuit Court on Thursday about the "stingray" cellphone monitoring matter involving the Sarasota Police Department to finding out the fate of the latest Jesse Biter project when it went before the city Planning Board on June 11. County Editor Roger Drouin has a report from last week's Tiger Bay Club discussion of leg- islative actions (with special attention to the diverging diamond interchange at I-75 and Uni- versity Parkway and Benderson Park), along with an update on the homeless initiatives and the county's proposed Post Disaster Redevel- opment Plan. The latter's storm surge evacu- ation map is a must-see. Add Warm Mineral Springs, Sanborn Studios and the Siesta trolley into the mix, and you will see we covered lots of territory. Fortunately, along with that array of news, contributor Fran Palmeri has made it pos- sible for us to add a wonderful new month- ly feature called It's a wild world. Don't miss it!
