Board Approves Electronic Voting Option
Casualty insurance cost also declines for a second year in
a row
At its December 13 meeting the Board took action in two areas:
electronic voting and the renewal of our casualty insurance policy
for 2017.
Electronic Voting: Early in 2015, a Florida statute was passed
permitting associations to offer electronic online voting to their
members who would prefer to vote and/or receive ofcial notices by
those means. At its November meeting, a resolution authorizing such
an electronic voting option was presented, discussed and tabled until
this meeting pending legal opinion about one of the clauses in the
resolution. That resolution was brought back for discussion, and the
Board, being satised with the requested legal opinion, approved it.
This action simply permits the association to offer owners the option
of voting and receiving ofcial notices by electronic mail. By itself,
this resolution neither obligates the association to provide this option,
nor owners to use it if it is offered. If the association chooses to make
such an option available it will need to enter into a board-approved
separate contract with an independent provider of electronic voting
service and provide information and consent forms to all owners so
that they may enroll in the service, if they wish to.
Casualty Insurance Renewal
The insurance policy that insures our buildings and carports
against damage from wind, re, and other perils, apart from ood,
comes up for renewal each December. Each year, our insurance
agent solicits proposals from the marketplace of insurance carriers
who write casualty policies for a complex of our size, age, and
location, and presents the best offering for our consideration. Owing
to the comparatively low incidence of major claims from disaster
events worldwide, and the abundance of investor capital owing
into the insurance marketplace, our renewal premiums were once
more slightly lower than the previous years costs. The Board
approved renewals for total premiums of $546,000 to provide 100%

All Artists (painter, sculptor, jeweler, woodworker, fiber,
potter, etc.)
By Joan Sable
You’ve arrived! You’re getting settled! You’re reading this newsletter! There’s so
much to do! So many people to see! Which classes are you going to take! You want to
go kayaking! You are thinking about tennis! You are overwhelmed! Well, STOP!
It’s time for you to relax and get involved with your art, whatever it may be. Take a
deep breath and don’t think about anything but the art you are working on. It’s just you
and your “art”. Why? Because you must nish your pieces on time in order to submit
them for the 2017 Annual Art Show, Pelican Cove’s largest event of the year. It is held
over three days and in two different places. The dates are Saturday, March 11, Sunday,
March 12, and Monday, March 13. Forms for submitting work will be available at the
ofce on Wednesday, January 4, and must be returned to the ofce no later than Friday,
February 17. Any person, owner, renter or worker in Pelican Cove may enter two pieces
of their work. Watch for future notices and posters. Beryl Ruff berylruff2@gmail.com
is the chair of this event.
Dear Jack and Newsletter Editor:
I would like to thank our president, our manager and all of the staff who were
mobilized to make us aware of our recent water deciency problem. Multiple
announcements were pasted to our doors making us aware of the problem, giving us the
anticipated length of the outage, and advising us of the health precautions to take once
the water was turned on.
There was nothing that you should have done that was missing from your operation
and it should be reassuring to all of us who live here that we are in good hands.

President’s Post
By Gary Gulden
Dear Neighbors,
Happy New Year!
This is the time of our year when there are
so many programs and activities on the Pelican
Cove calendar that we are spoiled for choice and
nd ourselves wishing there were more hours in
a day to t them all in. We are truly blessed with
such an amazing array of offerings – brought
to us by a large corps of dedicated, talented,
generous, and equally amazing volunteers. Hats
off, and thanks to you all for everything you do
to make this such a uniquely stimulating place to
live.
We will be holding our Annual Meeting in a little more than a month, and with it,
our election of directors. A strong board is of vital importance to our association, and
there are four seats to be lled this year. Please consider standing as a candidate for
a term as a director. The deadline for submitting your candidacy is Monday, January
9, 2017, at 5 p.m. “Intent to Run” forms are available at the ofce, on line, or as
an insert in last month’s PC News. The Annual Meeting also marks the time when
some of the seats on our standing committees turn over as certain members’ terms
are up. These committees are the heart of our governance system and equally as
important to the strength of this association as is the Board. The meeting schedules of
these committees are published in each month’s PC News and on our website, their
agendas are prominently posted, and they are open to all. I urge you to attend the
meetings of committees whose responsibilities interest you, and, provided you are an
owner, make your interest in becoming a member known to their chairs.
Of note among our committees’ work is an effort underway for the past year in the
Planning Committee to develop a long-range plan for Pelican Cove’s infrastructure.
A public forum to obtain resident input to that project is scheduled for Thursday,
January 5, 2017, at 10 a.m. in the Pelican Pavilion. Please make plans to attend.
My wife, Toodie, joins me in wishing you a very happy and healthy 2017.

Committee Doings
Bay & Water Environmental Committee – December 8
Meeting was held at 9:30 a.m. in the Wilbanks with
a quorum.
Old business involved changing the committee’s
name, question raised that committee’s mission
statement and name change might be in conict. Vote
was tabled.
Discussed Climate Change Study and need for more
involvement in providing input to Mr. Beever. Ewa
will attend climate study subcommittee meeting next
Monday.
Two guests arrived, Willard Block with Jennifer
Schaeffer of the Science and Environment Council.
This is a collaborative council of 30 organizations
representing scientic research in Sarasota and
Manatee Counties.
Building & Facilities Committee – December 1
Window coverings for Pavilion is an ongoing project
awaiting quotes and proposals.
Owner requested dumpster be moved at Bldg#1531 to
existing parking space – it was recommended that Doug
get a better estimate of costs involved, and B&F members
go to look at area involved. It was suggested cost should be
absorbed by owners involved in that area. To be delayed until
1/6/17 meeting.
Sewer pipe issues are an ongoing discussion. We have
had one area done recently with a video before and after, and
another area to be done soon. No conclusive evidence yet
that we must take a denite action. This is an issue requiring
attention on an individual basis at this time, although it will
need some long term planning to avoid major costs in a
short term.
LED lighting proposal was further discussed and it was
determined we need more proposals for the board.
Pickle ball was also brought up as something becoming
very popular but not necessary for B&F to be involved with
at this time. May go to rules committee in the future. Further
action tabled at this time.
Carport roof replacements were discussed and will be
addressed by the Planning Committee for future consideration.
Safety doors with panic bars are being evaluated for the
Pavilion and we are awaiting three proposals.
Finance Committee – November 16
The Finance Committee had a very brief meeting; there
was no old business. The only new business was to review the
October nancials. Pelican Cove continues to be in very good
nancial shape.
Harbor Committee – December 7
The chair spoke of Dan Alger and his contributions to
Pelican Cove and to the Harbor Committee. He announced
that there will be a memorial to Dan at the Harbor Club
from 3 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, December 17. Harbor Chair
had discussion with the chair of Planning Committee - they
discussed challenges of administration of Harbor issues. Chair
discussed climate change and issues to be brought to Mr.
Beevers attention. He also drafted a letter to Mr. Beever and
wants the committee to review letter prior to sending.
An owner suggested putting decorated kayaks in vacant
slips for the duration of Holiday Harbor Lights. HC approved
with conditions that no electrical connections be allowed to
touch the water and that dock lines are secured to allow rise
and fall with tide. Kayaks can remain in slips from the day of
Harbor Lighting of the Fleet till Saturday after the New Year.
Administration reports 35 boat and 3 kayak rack slips
open. There are 11 people on the waiting list and 11 on the
move list.

Manager’s Report
By Jack Stevens, General Manager
With the new year just begun there are a couple of things already happening. Our at roof
project is scheduled to begin January 17. We will be starting with the building located at 1526
Pelican Point Drive and completing work on 1520/1518 Pelican Point Drive, 1633 Boathouse
Circle, and 1508 Pelican Cove Road by early April. In addition, we are installing new radio
frequency gate controls at the main gate and anticipate this system being operational by the
end of this month. This system will allow owners to have automatic access to the property.
We are always looking forward in order to better maintain the property and avoid unnecessary
costs. One area we are working on is a plan for funding and addressing our aging underground
sewer system. The main sewer lines for many units representing each of our neighborhoods
have been inspected, jetted clear, and videoed. This work was done not only to reduce back-
ups from known problem areas, but to gather a better understanding of the condition of our
existing pipes. The good news is that the pipes we cleaned were in better shape than we had
expected. We will continue addressing problem areas, which will add to our understanding of the condition of our underground
pipes, while we plan for our future needs.
In addition to addressing the sewer mains, our buildings maintenance crews completed painting the stairs and front entries to
the Grovehouse buildings located at 1508, 1512, and 1516 Pelican Cove Road; began structural repairs to the Brookhouse building
located at 1680 Brookhouse Circle; completed the structural repairs and painting of the Brookhouse building located at 1705
Clower Creek Drive; repaired several stairs,
structural posts and decks around the property;
removed and completely rebuilt rear decks
on units located at 1677 Brookhouse Circle
and 1701 Clower Creek Drive; removed and
replaced the concrete window sill to a unit at
1519 Pelican Point Drive; replaced roughly
40’ of the boardwalk between 1519 and 1525
Pelican Point Drive, as well as the boardwalk
leading to the Brookhouse pool; repaired the
side of the storage area located near 1505
Pelican Point Drive; replaced a pump motor
for the Pavilion pool; and started painting the
stucco areas of the Bayhouse buildings.
In grounds maintenance, we completed
the trimming, edging, and raking of the
Grovehouses, both Treehouse neighborhoods,
the Brookhouses and Glenhouses, and are
nearing completion of the Bayhouses; we
added new plantings around the Far Harbor
pool; had the large pond in the Brookhouses
cleaned; installed Poinsettias around the
property; removed several failing trees around
the property, and replanted in the areas where
they were removed.
We are moving our operating account
from Iberia to Florida Communities Bank.
Everyone should have received their coupon
books. If you have not received your books
please let the ofce know.

The Pelican Cove University Committee is gearing up for
the start of classes on Wednesday, January 4, 2017. Our rst
class will be Robert Rothstein’s “Running on Empty: Failure

The University Committee is very sad to announce
the death of our chairperson, JoEllen DeMarco. We are
working hard to duplicate all of the things that she did for our
community and to try and have the university run as smoothly
as it did under her able guidance. Alice Levine, an active
committee member, is serving as acting chair for this season.
We will honor JoEllen’s memory on Saturday afternoon,

Award-winning jazz pianist Rossano Sportiello is
recognized for effortless swing and his broad interest in
many jazz styles. Born in Vigevano, Italy, Sportiello played
professionally at the age of sixteen in venues in the Milan
area. With Europe’s historic “The Milano Jazz Gang”, he
toured throughout Italy and West Europe leading to invitations
for personal appearances in many countries. His rst trip to
the U.S. and introduction to the American audiences was at
the 2003 “March of Jazz” party in Clearwater Beach, Florida.
He is now established in New York City and married to
American writer Lala Moore.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see and hear three
compelling and innovative jazz artists on stage together,
promising to be an evening of jazz to remember at Pelican
Pavilion on Tuesday, January 24, at 7:30 p.m.
Due to the popularity of this group, tickets will be
available on January 24 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Pavilion,

Pelican Programs Rings in the New in 2017
By Felice Perlmutter & Libby Ross
And January is jumping as our own Wylie Crawford
presents our opening program on Tuesday, January 10, 8 p.m.
in the Pavilion and literally rings in the new. A carillon player
extraordinaire, Wylie is the fth University Carillonneur for
the University of Chicago, and is the president of the World
Carillon Federation.
The University of Chicago carillon is an enormous
instrument, with 72 bells cast in an English foundry, ranging
from 10-pounders to 19-ton heavyweights. The stationary
bells are struck by clappers wired to an organ-like console.
The carillonneur controls both dynamics and rhythm by
playing on a double row of keys and a pedal board. This is
a rare opportunity to hear and learn about this most unusual
instrument.
And we continue jumping in January as the outstanding
Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe returns to Pelican Cove on
Monday, January 23, 8 pm, in the Pavilion. Founded by actor,
singer, director and playwright Nate Jacobs, the WCBT has
enjoyed tremendous growth from a grassroots organization
(supported by Pelican Cove enthusiasts from its earliest
days) to a successful not-for-prot professional theatre. Their
performances have delighted our community.
And February is equally exciting. On Saturday, February
18, 8 p.m. in the Pavilion, singer Rhonda Liss, Pelican Cove
resident, presents The Many Faces of Love: A Broadway
Tapestry. Vocalist Liss was a professional opera singer
both here (at the Met in New York) and in Europe (The
Netherlands Opera in Amsterdam) for many years. Her
long-running cabarets, The Heartache and Sorrow Show,
A Canary Called Quintessence and Everybody Says Don’t,
met with critical and public acclaim in London, Berlin and
Amsterdam. Her pianist is Alan Jay Corey, an award-winning
musical director with credits at the Van Wezel, Sarasota
Opera, American Stage and Theater Works, among others.
This one-hour cabaret takes you from West Side Story
to Cabaret to Carousel to Sondheim and many others, all
interwoven with Rhonda’s humorous, lively, and engaging
stories. A short sing-a-long will follow. Don’t miss this!
Do mark your calendars for our March programs. Our
popular Cinema Club leader, Del Jacobs, will explain how
movies get made on Wednesday, March 1 at 8 p.m. at the
Pavilion. Del is director of Film & Media Studies at State
College of Florida, and professor of lm at Ringling College.
He will lead a panel discussion on the traditional role of
the Hollywood studio producer and the independent lm
producer. Joining him will be Victor Simpkins, producer
of the lm “Swingers” among other mainstream and indie
productions, who will provide a professional perspective

PC Jazz Combo
By Wanda Darlington
Jazz is “just around the corner” at the Pavilion every
Thursday night, beginning January 12. The downbeat will
again be at 7:30 p.m. in response to favorable comments from
residents and musicians. While the name of the group implies
strictly jazz, the PC Combo plays a wide variety of music for
both listening and dancing.
The Combo has a long history dating to l980, when
a group of jazz-loving residents gathered to listen to and
discuss music. Those with instruments enjoyed playing for
themselves. With Stan Hendricks at the helm, soon others
came to listen, and the Combo became a regular seasonal
Thursday night event. Nick Cannici, Bob Howland, and
Dave Farr kept the music owing after Stan’s death. The
monetary gifts of residents and donations at the door have
enabled the combo to continue through the years.
Now, under the direction of Bobby Barnhardt, the
Combo is composed of Sarasota musicians. You can expect
to see Johnny Moore back on drums, John DeWit on bass
and pianist Keith Carmen. Musicians comprising the “front
line” will be Joe Bruno on trumpet, trombonist Marvin
Luckett, and Bobby Barnhardt, sax and clarinet. Vocalists
Sam Kaplan, Kathryn Anderson and I, are Pelican Cove
residents who add their talents to the group.
Plan to join us 7:30-9 p.m. in the Pelican Pavilion starting
January 12, and on each following Thursday evening
through March.

uses her experience as a math tutor in Sarasota, to write a
series of books which teach basic elementary level math. The

she would benet from a tutor. The next two chapters are the
math lessons given by the tutor, Ms. Gibbs, to Kayla, with
considerable personal interaction. The books are aimed at
4th graders, but can be used for any age. Vicki is planning
workshops for tutors. She will teach them to use her books
with students, helping them gain the skills necessary to be
successful in school.
About Vicki: after she raised six really smart kids, she began

“Our World, Our Country, Our Community,
Ourselves”
By Jan Hasselbring
Ourselves – Thursday, January 26, Downsizeology
Roadshow, with Andy Rousseau.
What is your New Years resolution for 2017? How about
a resolve to change your life and make it more joyful? Heed
the advice of tidying up guru, Marie Condo, bestselling
author of “The Art of Tidying Up,” and “Does it Spark Joy?”:
“When you tidy up, you gain condence; you start to believe
in the future; things begin to go more smoothly; people you
meet change; unexpected things happen in a positive way;
change begins to accelerate, and you begin to really enjoy
your life.” Sound like a plan? Start today and while you’re at
it, set aside an interesting item to bring to the Downsizeology
Roadshow on January 26. Label it and have it to the Pavilion
by 9 a.m. where it will be on display during the coffee hour at
9:30 a.m. and will be part of Andy’s presentation at 10 a.m.
Our World – Friday, February 3, 7 p.m. Pavilion.
“Unlocking the Mysteries of Iran” with Ruth Brandwein
“You’re so brave!” “Aren’t you afraid?” “Be sure never to
leave the group!” “I’ll post your bail when you’re arrested.”
“I did leave the group to stroll with one or two others and I
was never followed by the Revolutionary Guards! I never
even saw a policeman. What I did nd was completely
different than I had been led to expect, and unearthed a
number of surprises and contradictions.” Ruth will share her
experiences, impressions and reections.
Our Country – Thursday, February 23, 9 a.m. with John
Adler – “The First Candidate from Chappaqua” – John will
compare this past election with the election of 1872, when
Horace Greeley ran against President Grant.

Meet Your Neighbor: Rebecca Harp
By Donna Anderson
It’s 2017. We’ve drunk the cups, snuffed the candles,
and boxed the lights. Strains of Auld Lang Syne are but a
memory, and resolutions could dwindle as we face those rst
100 days. A crisp calendar, however, prompts an expectation
of the new, the shiny, the promising. Like the years rst
born or a freshly minted coin, then, it is nice to consider the
reections of our young neighbor, Rebecca Harp.
Rebecca is 35, single, and has just signed the fourth lease
for her Grovehouse condo. She is a certied Neuromuscular
Massage Therapist, a certied Reexologist, has a private
practice, and teaches yoga. She is a very modern gal.
“Do you ever look around your world and just feel like,
‘I am an odd duck.’” Interestingly, Rebecca’s referring to her
native Harbor Beach, Michigan, not Pelican Cove. She had
a lightbulb moment in her 17th year. Sitting in a basement
playing Euchre with friends, she noted the parents on the
other side of the room – beers in hand, a mullet haircut,
missing teeth. It was perhaps a rare snapshot, but it struck a
chord. “I look at Chris and I said, ‘Hey, do you want to be
doing this when you’re 40?’ And, she’s like, ‘Yeaaahh!’”
Rebecca called her sister in Sarasota the next week, and
stayed with her for summer vacation. The options seemed
better here.
Rebecca graduated from high school in 2000, and moved
south. She lived with her sister, Sarah, and looked after her
young niece. She took classes at Florida College of Natural
Health. She met her husband and married, only to divorce
early on. The transitions from Michigan to Sarah’s home to
marriage gave Rebecca little chance at independence. So,
when she left their 4-bedroom home in Lakewood Ranch,
hopscotching the county to live in borrowed bungalows and
short-term rentals, accommodations were far from ideal. On
the rst morning of the third move, she remembers waking
up “in this sweet little townhouse where appliances were
working, there was an air-conditioner, a coffee maker, and a
laundry facility. I sat and cried.”
More moves followed. Pelican Cove came up in a search
on Craigslist. Rebecca thought it was magnicent. “I have
pockets of solitude [here]. That’s what I really enjoy. My
space.” Additionally, the cove’s deference to foliage and
wildlife is a value she’s shared since childhood. With a seven-
year-old friend, she would often set off for the tree-lined street
two blocks from home. They searched for “Raw Nature.”
Their motto: “to go where no human has ever been before.”
Rebecca enjoys life in the cove. Once the rst question
is out of the way – Why are you here? – people embrace
and accommodate her. The next-door neighbors are
musicians. She has had to request that they ‘keep it down’
in the evenings because she works early. She hears that the
conversation has become, “Shhhh, Rebecca needs her sleep.”
Another neighbor worries about Rebecca’s social life. She
suggests, “You should go to Bonesh Grill. I think there’s a
lot of young people there.”
Between her practice and teaching yoga, Rebecca takes
improv classes at Florida Studio Theater. She hangs out
at Simon’s Coffee House, and meets up with friends. Her
parents also migrated to Sarasota, so she spends time with
family. Had she available hours to volunteer, Rebecca would
work with youth. “I would be involved with empowering
girls. One of the biggest things I’ve learned is not to listen
to anybody else’s story about you. Don’t give anybody
the patent to your story…And wildlife, following wolves
especially. Yeah.”
Like many her age, Rebecca’s tattoos tell a story. There
is a heart on her left shoulder symbolizing the need for self-
awareness. “I thought, goll, what a beautiful tattoo that would
be, you know, right on my sleeve, a heart.” Her right arm
bears a peacock feather. She has come to think of it as a quill
that records her journey. A favorite line of poetry from “She
Let Go” by the Rev. Sare Rose reads, “Like a leaf falling
from a tree, she just let go.” The leaves that trail down her arm
represent that line. It is a reminder: Move on; choose better;
listen to your heart. She also likes dragonies. There are
several. “But,” she says, “I have to x it. These two have this
element of beauty and uidity, and these look like stickers. So,
I’m like, crap, it’s permanent!” Her laughter is contagious.
Future plans include owning her own home. A nice
kitchen, lots of windows, enough property, “something where
I could put my hands in,” are priorities. Rebecca would like
a dog and a life’s partner. Friends have commented that her
requirements for a mate are a tall order. She says, “I got
divorced because I wanted a partnership. That’s why I’m
single. I don’t want to date. There’s just too much that I want

Kate & Bill Isles
Acoustic Folk Duo at Harbor Club
Friday, January 13 at 7:30 p.m.
By Joel Leonard
Bill & Kate Isles are an acoustic singer/songwriter duo
based in Duluth, Minnesota. Using a wide variety of musical
styles, their performances carry audiences through a broad
landscape of experiences from metaphorical worlds to
small-town family stories and zany comedy. Consummate
performers, they are known for their catchy melodies
and memorable songs, many of them original. They tour
nationally, presenting their profound songs for audiences
large and small, from house concerts to festival stages
and everything in between. Words like “Mesmerizing”
“Transcendent”, and even “Hysterical” are common
descriptions from audience reviews, and audience members
feel that they are listening to stories of their own lives, told
by two of their best friends. They have toured nationally as a
duo, full-time, since early 2007, performing 100-150 shows
per year. CDs will be available.
The Folk Music Club has invited this professional duo to
Pelican Cove and we are requesting donations at the door. The
next community singalong will take place on Sunday, January
29 at 7:30 p.m. Everyone is invited; song books are available
and the Pelican Cove String Band will be there to lead.
