Some weeks we at the News Leader cannot believe our good fortune in the amount of interesting news popping up around us. This has been one of those weeks. Perhaps the City and County commissions and the School Board are just focused on getting things done before the holiday season begins in earnest. Whatever the reasons, you won't hear us complain — except that we wish we had more time. We strive diligently to cover the news we think you will find most worthy of your attention. However, we also keep looking over agenda items and eyeing scraps of paper on our desks that bear tidbits of information we heard, knowing some readers would be drawn to that news as well. Alas, as my husband is fond of saying, the only person ever to get everything done by Friday was Robinson Crusoe. This week, for your reading pleasure, we invite you not only to take note of Stan Zimmerman's usual re- sourcefulness in ferreting out news of the city of Sarasota, but also his satirical take on the incident involving a homeless person and a police officer in Gillespie Park. Cooper Levey-Baker put on his political reporter's cap to cover a legislative issues breakfast involving a broad array of area nonprofit groups; then, he pulled out his county reporter's credentials to cov- er final County Commission action on a proposed new assisted living facility. Scott Proffitt also has done double duty — offer- ing a report on a program about how integration affected Newtown residents, then turning his at- tention to the Sarasota County Public Schools' new plans for career and technical education. The best part for us is that we are bringing you stories you likely will not find anywhere else. Editor and Publisher
