PELICAN C n e w s VOLUME XLI NO. 6 VE JUNE / JULY 2015 “All the news that fits” Special Events June 7 & 21 July 5 & 19 Movie Night 7 p.m. – Pavilion June 11 & 25 July 9 & 23 Happy Hour 5:30 p.m. – Wilbanks The Pelican Cove Harbor was the subject of numerous discussions over the past month. The decision was made to not dredge next year and to install larger catch basins to capture sediment before it enters the harbor. Silting will be closely monitored to determine when dredging will be necessary. The PC Office will be “Closed” Friday, July 3 for Independence Day May Board Meeting Handles Full Agenda! The May Board agenda was packed full of end-of-season items and well attended by over 25 residents who sat through the three hour plus meeting, as the Board carefully went through the dozen items in New Business. Though the meeting was lengthy, the final outcome was fruitful. Phase 3 of the Road Restoration project was approved and will come in under budget. In addition, the Board approved the installation of three large storm water vaults. These vaults will collect silt and other organic matter preventing it from running off into the harbor. The vault installation is well timed with the final phase of the road restoration project. The Board unanimously passed a resolution that clearly specifies the type of finishes that second and third floor units may apply to exterior decks, landings, porches or lanais. Unit owners are responsible to maintain any modified surfaces in order to inhibit the flow of water or ensure that these surfaces do not hold moisture; only paint (with a non-slip additive) or stain will be allowed or approved for new or replacement finishes. If tile is currently in place on elevated decks, landing, porches or lanais owners will need to ensure the grout joints are sealed to prevent water intrusion and all grout joints will need to be resealed with a waterproof sealer no less than once a year. continued on page 10 INSIDE THIS ISSUE To the Editor . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 2 Additional Kayak Storage . . . . . . 4 . .

Further, I wish to thank Judy Drohlich and her committee for their careful architectural planning to bring about an excellent change for the Harbor Club. This change allowed seating to be improved from 75 to 105. This additional space has enhanced an alternative to the Pavilion for accommodating University classes, speakers, community, and club activities. As executive coordinator for the Pelican Cove Photography Club, I have noted that our members are especially appreciative of the additional hanging space as well as new illumination for art. In addition, Jack Stevens was able to purchase for the facility a very high quality projector that allows the Photo Club and others to accurately project their images on a front screen. Connie Lang has set up an arrangement where Mike Stockhill, the electrician will assist each group with the use of the projector. This procedure allows for assisting members who have projection needs, as well as assures the equipment will not be misused. I feel very grateful that I live in a community where exemplary cooperation exists among management, board of directors, and its seven hundred and thirty one owners. Jim Redmond, BA-214 To the Editor: I would like to commend the Harbor Committee for all the hard work they have done this past season.  Under the leadership of the committee chair, Dee Tashian. the committee dealt with many issues.  The dredging of the harbor was a big issue involving a large sum of money.  After many hours of research and consulting it was decided not to dredge at this time.  Dan Alger gave much of his time and his professional expertise in arriving at this decision.  Another issue was the water runoff from Pelican Cove which contributes most of the silt that fills the harbor. Jim Russell chaired a sub-committee to deal with this issue.  The sub-committee recommended that we install three storm water collection vaults to control the silt.  Dave Schowalter, the newest member of the committee and our Kayak/Canoe Coordinator, gets most of the credit for the increase in storage racks at Clower Creek.  Dave gave many hours of his time and his professional expertise as a designer to reconfigure the arrangement of the racks at Clower Creek in order to better utilize the existing space.  Carol Russell, although not a member of the committee, offered her time and energy to bring the project to completion.. I’ve been around the block in Pelican Cove for a few years and have observed just how hard all of our committees work. This year I have to hand it to the Harbor Committee as they have done a hell of a job for Pelican Cove.  Frank Rivera, BR230 Website: www.pelicancovecondo.com PC Office email: pelicancove@comcast.net If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter. – George Washington Letters to the Editor: The Pelican Cove News will consider publishing letters to the Editor.

JUNE / JULY 2015 3 President’s Post Dear Friends, BOARD/COMMITTEE MEETINGS I hope this finds everyone enjoying a fine late spring – early summer season. As I write this from our home in New England, spring has finally arrived and the pile of snow in the shady spot by the front of our house is down to a modest two feet and fading fast. Committee meetings scheduled for the months of June/July. Check Channel 195, the PC website or the Office for any changes. Harbor Committee Wednesday, June 3 – 9 a.m. Wednesday, July 1 – 9 a.m. Wilbanks Conference Room Meanwhile, at Pelican Cove our committees and our staff have had a busy month of May. The Rules, Harbor and Buildings & Facilities Committees in particular together with our staff and the board have been working hard to wind up important remaining items on their agendas, and making preparations for projects to be completed during the summer. The board and committee business articles in this issue will give you a complete picture of the extent of this good work. Wishing you all a summer filled with all the good things you hope to enjoy – and some good surprises you hadn’t expected. Committee Doings, May Following are highlights of the May committee meetings. Harbor (May 6) – A motion to accept the Water Run Off Sub-committee recommendation to install “Sediment Vaults” to inhibit solid matter from washing into the harbor was passed. A motion to support the Grounds and B&F Committee’s efforts in this area was passed unanimously. The Water Run Off Sub-Committee has served its purpose and was disbanded. It was reported that: the Harbor Survey indicated little change from the April 2012 survey -the depth of the harbor was not a major problem at this time; there are 28 boat slips available and no kayak/canoe racks available; there are 39 people on the rack waiting list. The Committee passed a motion to increase kayak storage at Clower Creek by 63 racks. A motion to temporarily store some kayaks, while construction is in progress, at a site to be determined was passed. A motion to request funding not to exceed $15,000 was passed. An outside contractor will complete the work by the end of September 2015. Buildings & Facilities (May 8) – The Committee sent to the Board the following recommendations: to resurface the roads, install 3 silt collection vaults, and limit the finishing of outside decks to painting or staining. Other subjects covered were the cleaning of individual units’ dryer vents, the installation of a tennis wall, the expansion of the doggy park, and kayak storage expansion. These items are likely to be brought up again at the next Committee meeting in the fall. Gary Gulden, President Bill McKay (Treasurer) suggested earlier involvement of the FC with management re: the budget process. In the past few years, the board has introduced new projects in the middle of the budget cycle; these need to be identified earlier so that they can be placed in the regular budget process. The budget is tight but within bounds: income is slightly above projected figures and expenses are currently 2 percent below projected figures. Finance (May 22) – The subcommittee working on the review of possible capital expense projects plans to begin their work with an information gathering meeting with the Manager, the Maintenance Coordinator and the Grounds Coordinator. Sheldon (Shelly) Zelizer in GR110 has been appointed to fill the unexpired term of Judy Drolich who resigned from the board. The action was taken at a special meeting of Board of Directors on Tuesday, May 26, 2015.

JUNE / JULY 2015 4 Additional Kayak Storage Approved By Dee Tashian, Harbor Committee Chair Spurred on by demand from residents for more kayak storage and access to the water, on May 19 the Board of Directors approved a recommendation from the Harbor Committee to modify the existing Clower Creek storage facility. When complete, this site will provide an additional 63 racks, which is enough to accommodate a current waiting list of 39 residents, provide additional space Living In Paradise – Including The Snake By Ruth Brandwein The other morning I screamed as I entered the kitchen. There on the floor, just in front of the sink, was a long, yellow snake. I must have frightened it as much as it frightened me, because it immediately slithered across the floor and into the narrow space between the stove and cabinet and disappeared. I optimistically assumed that it had found a hole in the wall and left. Of course, the wall behind the stove doesn’t go outside, but backs into the water heater closet. I carefully opened the door and didn’t see it, but didn’t look too closely. All was well until this morning, when I was awakened by a crash of something breaking. “What the hell was that?” I walked into the kitchen and there it was, curled around the stemware on my open shelf above the sink, looking as though it was poised to strike, its forked tongue darting in for the future, and create an additional steady revenue stream. Of all the options considered, with a slight 15-foot extension to the east, this plan works well within the existing boundaries of the present site. All existing bushes/ hedges along Clower Creek Drive remain in place, which means there is no change to the sight line approaching or returning from the Far Harbor Bridge. By reason of a very heavy summer work schedule, Pelican Cove staff will be unable to complete this project, so outside labor will be sought. Management will take the lead by and out. One of my best stemware lay shattered in the sink below. After my first near encounter I had checked my Florida nature book and determined it was a rat snake, the second most common snake to southwestern Florida. The book had cautioned that although it is non-poisonous, a bite can be very painful. I withdrew from the kitchen and called the office, but of course, at 8 a.m. the office was closed and I was instructed “in case of emergency call the gatehouse.” I decided this WAS an emergency! I called Rosie and within 5 minutes Doug Stockhill, my hero, arrived. By now my snake had stretched itself in and out among the stemware. It looked to be about 3 feet long. Doug was baffled. “I don’t know how I’m going to get it out without breaking all your stemware.” But first he took a photo of it for the record. At that point, the snake’s head was all the way to the right end of the shelf and the end of his tail was at the other end. Asking recruiting and supervising labor. The Harbor Committee will provide the design plan (courtesy of David Schowalter, a retired professional designer), and manage the temporary relocation of any kayaks that will need to be removed to accommodate the new design plan by coordinating with residents and their alternates. Depending on the weather, work is estimated to take no more than 3-4 weeks to complete, and is projected to be finished by September 30. Doug not to move, I quietly approached the shelf on the left, with my walking stick held handle up, in case it should strike. I spoke softly to the snake, shushing it and telling it not to be afraid. As it stared at me I carefully and quietly removed one of my large wine goblets at the end farthest from its head. I then proceeded in the same manner to remove two more, but as it continued to move its head, always staring at me, I withdrew, not wanting to press my luck. The snake now had moved from a flat position covering the entire shelf to a more contracted pose in one corner. Now Doug had an idea. He got a TJ large paper bag and with a pair of tongs and my oven mitt over one hand, he gently prodded it into the bag, and only two more glasses fell into the sink. He quickly shut the bag, opened the door and freed this marvelous creature into the bushes where it can eat rodents or whatever, to it heart’s content. A final word to the wise: we live in paradise, but even paradise has spiders, palmetto bugs, hungry raccoons, snakes and other critters. They are usually as afraid of us as we are of them. They’re just trying to live. Don’t panic. Call Doug!

JUNE / JULY 2015 Connie’s Corner By Connie Lang, General Manager 5 months. They will begin working on the twelfth Glenhouse building at 1707 Pelican Cove Road once they have completed the emergency Brookhouse deck repairs. The painters are completing the tenth Glenhouse building at 1711 Pelican Cove Road and completed painting the new siding associated with the roofing project. The painters have continued to perform drywall repairs in units affected by structural repairs and have assisted with accomplishing set-ups for events and classes. The crew cleaned the rip-rap at the bay end of Bayhouse Point Drive and will be installing a new catch basin to help filter the storm water runoff before it drains into the bay. The crew has been heavily pruning the scheffeleras and fiddle leaf figs that are too tall so that they will fill out later in the year. A good example of this technique is the scheffelera at the end of Pelican Point Drive; it was heavily pruned last year and is flourishing now. The crew also raised the level of a sidewalk at BR162 that was underwater in heavy rain storms. The carpenters completed the maintenance of the eleventh Glenhouse building at 1709 Pelican Cove Road. The carpenters have started replacing the failing elevated decks in the Brookhouse neighborhood. The first deck in this project is located at 1667 Brookhouse Circle. The carpenters will work on this project for the next two Celebrating 35 Years By Linda Wolf, Virginia Tashian November 15, 2015 will mark the 35th anniversary of the Pelican Cove Condominium Association we know today – when the owners voted to merge the then 17 existing associations into one. Eighty-nine percent of owners voted in favor – all 17 condos had to We permanently mounted a condensing microphone on the ceiling of the Harbor Club meeting room. This installation allows the hearing loop and built-in speakers in the room to be used during meetings and presentations without requiring the installation of multiple microphones and cables. The Wind Mitigation Inspector inspected the buildings that have wind mitigation forms that expire in 2015 and the buildings that we recently re-roofed. As of May, the office had assisted with 26 real estate sales. We are upgrading our telephone plan with Verizon to save $200 per month on the Association telephone bill at no cost to the Association. The Communications Committee plans to activate the updated website on October 1. At this time, 95% of the group/club web pages have been created. The office provided the Planning Committee chair with the complete survey data-base. agree to the merger and 100 percent agreement of lien holders was required. Interestingly, a quick study of the names of the 83 “founders”, those who actually owned PC property at that time, as listed in “A History of Pelican Cove”, suggests that about 35 of them, or their family members, still own today. We, who live here now, owe a great deal to these visionaries. The staff will accomplish the following projects during the off-season: • Update Wind Mitigation Forms • Restore Remaining Roads • Install Stormwater Vaults • Rebuild Failing Brookhouse Decks • Replace Specified Carport Roofs • Renovate Harbor Club Fitness Facility • Expand Clower Creek Kayak Storage Facility • Proactively Fumigate Five Buildings • Resurface Far Harbor Pool • Improve the Surveillance System • Install Bayhouse Point Drive Catch Basin • Extend Reclaimed Water Line • Install a Connecting Walk Path Beside the Pavilion Pool Building • Improve the Walk Path beside the Pavilion • Re-grade the Sodded Area Behind HA231 • Re-grade the Area Behind BR141 • Replant Areas Around the Harbor • Replant Area Under Oak Tree in Front of the Office • Re-landscape Area at TR137 at Owner Expense • Update Reserve Study • Archive Files • Prepare the 2016 Operational Budget • Complete Continuing Education Coursework Thirty-five years is listed as the emerald, jade or coral anniversary celebration. Pelican Cove’s lush grounds certainly reflect the green option. Plans are afoot to hold a celebration on Sunday, November 15, and other later programs planned by Board Recognized Groups will support the anniversary. Save the date, and stay tuned.

JUNE / JULY 2015 6 Bulletin Board Bullets By Erlinda Rejino Another active, successful season has come and gone at the Cove. Activities slow down and demand for posting space on our outdoor bulletin boards quiets significantly. The multiple listing poster for weekly activities has been removed and weekly classes may again post individually from now through November. Managing the boards during the 12 weeks (January-March) of high season is when multiple activities compete for the posting space. During the 2014-15 season the Communications Committee ran an experiment using smaller sleeves on selected bulletin boards to increase the posting space. Upon review of the Dryer Vent Cleaning experiment’s results the committee has determined that the smaller sleeves are not the answer and will return all the bulletin boards to the 8.5 x 11 sleeves over the course of the summer. What is the answer? The committee is working over the summer to find some alternative posting mechanisms and will be developing proposals for the Building & Facilities Committee’s consideration for the long term solution. In the shorter term, there are some questions the various groups using the boards can ask themselves to make the cooperative use of the current posting space workable. 1. Are we adhering to the 10-day prior to the event posting rule or, do we post when convenient and sometimes it is a day or three early? is prudent for PC to look into anything that can help prevent these fires. By Selden Sutton Each year there are approximately 15,500 dryer fires in the U.S. due to uncleaned dryer vents. Staff is aware of one such fire happening in Pelican Cove. While there is no cause for alarm, given our wooden structures and the fact that we are surrounded by woods, it In the coming months the B&F committee will be presenting a recommendation to the Board on this subject. Questions to be resolved include whether or not to leave it up to individual owners to make their own dryer vent cleaning decisions, whether to hire an outside company to check 2. Do we immediately remove our postings or do we depend on other folks to take care of this for us? 3. If posting a registration date for an event and registration is required for the event is it necessary to post the event as well? 4. Although there are 30 outdoor bulletin boards on site, is it reasonable to expect that each event will be posted on all 30 boards? Might strategic placement in each neighborhood be more reasonable? 5. How can we use the revised website to help with our posting needs? Let’s continue working together to find the solution and make cooperation and camaraderie our guiding principles. and clean all PC dryer vents, or whether to handle the matter in house using PC staff. Costs vary significantly as you may imagine with the greatest expense going to individuals who handle this problem on their own. We will have more news on this subject – so stay tuned.

JUNE / JULY 2015 7 here. On our way back to Tampa, I stopped at… an Italian restaurant. I asked the fellow that was setting up, ‘When do you open for lunch?’ He told me, and I said, ‘Oh, that’s not going to work for us…we’ve got to catch a plane.’ He said, ‘Well, I’ll make it happen.’ So he opened early. We were the only two [customers]…I said to Colleen, ‘why are we going home?’ She said, ‘Well, let’s make it happen.’ We put a deadline [on it] and made [30 days] our goal. We just did it. We moved here not knowing anyone but it’s been wonderful; it’s turned into a life that’s very rewarding.” Meet Your Neighbor: Bob Gibson By Donna Anderson Bob Gibson is a factotum, a bicycler, and a very romantic guy. He hails from Michigan, and though there isn’t much about Saginaw he misses, Bob has recreated a bit of his boyhood lake-side summers here, replacing the family johnboat with a motorized canoe. A couple of years ago, if you saw a small yellow craft cruise our waters, replete with hand-painted shark teeth, an umbrella-sheltered blonde and a khaki-suited captain at the helm – well then, you know the Gibsons. Bob and Colleen have a new boat this spring which has yet to sport the same flair, but wait for it. It will come. They live life large, and together. Bob was a career fireman, protecting the homes and businesses lining Saginaw’s city streets during General Motors’ heyday. He joined the force at 21 because he needed a job. Bob says, “They helped mold who I am.” He trained as a paramedic, learned to cook, and honed mechanical skills that he uses today. “To be a good fireman…if you’re going to start a saw up in the middle of the night…when it’s 0 [degrees] out, you better know how to do it,” Bob says. “That fit me to a tee.” And though memories of the many fatal fires he was called to still hurt, it was a great career choice. “We used to have guys that said, ‘I’d take the better job, but God’s already got it.’ They felt that strong about it. They loved what they were doing and I did too.” Bob retired in 1994 and had the “misfortune,” he quips, “of owning a mortgage company. I’ve owned 50 homes…some of them…rented, some…flipped, some of them bought and sold the same day on a land contract to someone who couldn’t buy a house. If it has to do with a home, I’ve pretty much done it.” Misfortune or not, it is what eventually brought him south. “I had Florida branches. We’d come down here for work…and then to go back to my gritty little town…What’s the point?” he’d think. Eventually, Bob brought Colleen down on vacation. “[Her] birthday is in January, and I bought tickets…to come down Once here, Colleen took a job with the Herald Tribune. To keep busy, Bob advertised on the bulletin boards for handyman services. He didn’t want pay. He wanted connection, and maybe a beer. A trade system ensued. Much of the bartered treasure lines their walls and graces their tables. The gallery is beautifully exhibited. Before hanging them, Bob set paintings and photos out on the floor to find the perfect artistic arrangement. “That’s Maria Kron, that’s Ike Steinberg,” he says, and so on around the room. “I think it’s wonderful!” But the barter system didn’t last. People felt a need to pay. “So I came up with a nominal fee and it’s exploded. During season, I take all the work I can get.” Through it all, however, they make time for themselves. “We ride bikes on Sunday[s], go to yoga Tuesdays & Fridays,” and they take out that new boat when possible. “We don’t miss those things.” The occasion that sets Bob apart from all others is the surprise wedding he planned for his bride. “She said to me, ‘I’d like to get married, but I don’t really want to deal with all of the planning.’ That set my gears in motion, and I thought, I can do this. It really was kind of the funnest thing I’ve ever done.” Under the guise of attending another party, Bob proposed to Colleen on Siesta Key, gave her a bouquet, and said, “This is your wedding day.” Colleen adds, “We walked up the beach, and there was a heart [carved in the sand, strewn with] rose petals. Our friends greeted us with champagne. I was impressed. Bob had rings and vows, and I had nothing,” she laughs. Richard Weingarten performed the ceremony, eliciting a promise that they legalize the marriage downtown the next day. Dee Hamill hosted the reception. “It was gorgeous. I went over there on Thursday, and she had ladies…helping her set up…I didn’t know who they were, and she wouldn’t tell them what they were doing. ‘You can’t tell a secret in Pelican Cove,’ she said.” Their wedding album is stunning. Photos of joyful faces fill each page. “My new thing is let’s take advantage of being here. Every morning we get up early and I make a pot of coffee. We go somewhere and drink it so if you see us in your neighborhood, that’s what we’re doing, drinking our morning coffee.” Bob sees the future simply. “I want to grow old here, that’s what I want to do and get as much of this as I can. I don’t see that changing in me.”

JUNE / JULY 2015 8 Above and Below Stairs… By Virginia Tashian (Editor: This story is printed as an example of the type of memoir that the Writer’s Group is collecting from residents for a major project, Tales Out of Pelican Cove, which will be presented during next season. This is not a contest. All submissions will be accepted.) Watching “Downton Abbey” reminds me of my own younger days, from the age of 9, through teens and university years, of my many visits to Breadsall Priory, a grand house in Derbyshire, England, with some 400 acres of land. My godmother, Norah, was the lady of the manor. She had married, quite late in life, an untitled landed gentleman, Eric Haslam. His father, a refrigeration pioneer, had purchased the house in the late 1800’s. It was a former 13th century Augustinian priory dissolved by Henry VIII in 1536. Over the years it fell into disrepair, was purchased around 1800 by Erasmus Darwin (grandfather to Charles Darwin) and restored later that century to its ultimate Victorian grandeur. At the end of a long drive stood the house, complete with turret. There was a vast entrance hall with highly polished floors, an organ and a large gong that the butler, Keene, sounded to summon the household for meals. My brother and I were privileged, on occasion, to beat the gong! Other old retainers were Hannah, the cook, Eileen, the housemaid and those who lived on the property in cottages and came in daily – cleaning staff, gardeners, chauffeur, the bailiff and tenant farmers. There was a gun room, a large paneled dining room, a “morning room”, drawing room, large library, and a wonderful billiard room, wood paneled, with a musicians gallery from which I gave performances of verse and song to the assembled household. There were bedrooms and bathrooms, some bath fittings having elaborate polished wood borders and gold faucets. There were copious attics, a nursery suite, and a suite for bachelors, far from the rooms of young ladies. Below stairs, through green baize swing doors were larders, pantries, 2 vast kitchens, storerooms, cellars, the bailiff or estate manager’s office and, of course, the servants’ hall. There were even excavations of the old priory. My brother and I moved happily, above and below stairs, filling our days with whatever our host and hostess might be doing, as well as helping in the butler’s pantry, the kitchen, or with bed making, ironing, table setting, flower arranging, beekeeping, rose pruning (for me) or with the wine cellar, shooting, hedging, ditching, other estate work for my brother. Keene, the butler, was much of an age with “Mr. Eric” and served as his valet and shooting companion. He was also, probably, his oldest friend. Keene, a widower, lived in the gatehouse at the end of the drive. My brother and I both learned from him the skills and techniques of serving at table, holding the vegetable or other dishes on the left of each diner and removing soiled plates from the right. The china, glass, silver services were magnificent and different for each meal. Derby is home to Crown Derby china, and the house had a magnificent collection of historic show pieces, arrayed in a vast cabinet. The adjacent home farm was another delight. Almost everything served was home grown. There were cows, to learn how to milk, calves to admire and feed, cats, chickens, pigs, as well as vegetable gardens, greenhouses, a walled herb garden, stables and coach houses converted to garages. There were woods, rolling lawns, a pond, cedar tree and a rose garden, a hillock where daffodils bloomed in spring, where gravestones of former family dogs, horses and other pets were found. We went walking with the dogs, usually after luncheon, and returned for tea at 4 p.m.. Dinner was at 8 p.m. and we always changed into something a little dressier. Sometimes there were guests, country gentry, who came for luncheon or tea. One memorable snowy night, all the god daughters, nieces and nephews were invited to stay at the same time. Local guests were invited for the evening, and there was a Ball with a band, midnight supper and all the excitement of the house decorated for Christmas. Two of the invited guests were actors from the holiday show, in nearby Derby. Cinderella, an attractive blonde, soon became well-known as Susannah Yorke. Over time, the long serving staff retired or passed away. The worries of getting qualified live-in staff began. I did my bit, in my late teens, as chief cook and bottle washer for a short spell when I learned, to my surprise, that I could cook freshly killed grouse. When Uncle Eric died without direct heirs, the property was sold. There was an auction of furnishings and art when I was too far away to attend. My godmother built a house on a part of the estate, keeping items and treasures she wished. Dee and I visited her there once or twice. All this is a long time ago. However, if you want to know more about Breadsall Priory, you can visit it, in person or on the web, as Breadsall Priory Marriott Hotel and Country Club – “the oldest Marriott in the world” with two golf courses, a spa, new buildings where farm buildings stood. Many of the rooms in the house have been converted for banquets and conference rooms. Much of it looks familiar. I really must go there myself and see what I might recognize.

JUNE / JULY 2015 9 These hardy PC fishermen enjoyed several jaunts out to "blue water" about 18 miles offshore to snag these good looking fish! Winner of the day in this picture is Dick Parins (second from left) with his 18 lb grouper. From Left to right are Jerry Clancy, Dick Parins, Jim Russell and Len Hawrilenko, beaming with his enormous snapper catch! The Pelican Cove Yacht Club By Frank Anderson The spring has been busy. The March rendezvous at Turtles on Siesta Key filled the restaurant’s upstairs party room to capacity. On March 28, Treasurer Jean Gomoll and Fleet Captain Alice Hawrilenko worked with the Sarasota Power and Sail Squadron to provide vessel safety checks for 16 boats based in the Pelican Cove Harbor. The April 8 cookout with the Siesta Key Sailing Club filled the harbor gazebo. The cookout was also the occasion for the Siesta Key Sailing Club to present awards for the winners of the SKSC 2014-2015 racing season. The second place honors went to Pelican Cove’s Alberto Dimillo and Howard Wuertzel’s yacht, “Friendship” and third place went to Pelican Cove’s Alice Hawrilenko and her “Lapwing.” For just this year, we had to cede first place to Frank Von Almann’s “Ace High.” That probably won’t happen again, of course. We owe special thanks to Rear Commodore David Schowalter who provided both the management and labor arranging the cookout and to Len Hawrilenko and Alberto Dimillo, our “Grill Masters.” Our May rendezvous was a gathering of determined year-round Pelican Cove boaters. Seventeen of us gathered at the Venice Yacht Club on May 15. Our next rendezvous is set for June 18 at The Old Salty Dog on City Island. MOVIE NIGHT Earl Kaplan Two movie nights this month: Sunday, June 7 and Sunday, June 21; and two next month: Sunday, July 5 and Sunday, July 19 at 7 p.m. at the Pelican Pavilion. Watch for more information on Channel 195 or the PC website, www.pelicancovecondo.com. Movie Nights are open to all residents and are sponsored by the PC Social Club.

JUNE / JULY 2015 10 May Board Meeting from page 1 In response to the demand for more kayak/canoe storage the Board unanimously approved the reconfiguration of the Clower Creek kayak storage area. When completed, this modification will add an additional 63 new storage spots thus accommodating the 39 people currently on a wait list while providing additional space for the future. The plan is for the work to be completed by September and take no more than a month to complete. In response to a significant increase in pets during holidays, which caused many complaints from residents, the Board unanimously approved two resolutions clarifying language in The Rules We Live By regarding pets. Currently TRWLB states that lessees may not have pets (Rule X-K-1) and that owners are allowed a total of two pets (Rule X-K-7). To more precisely clarify these rules, Rule X-K-7 now reads, “Owners are allowed a total of two pets including visitors’ pets in any combination.” And Rule X-K-1 now reads “Lessees and/or their visitors may not have pets in Pelican Cove. While proposing these clarifications, the Rules Committee recognized that there was no way to clearly identify those pets that are valid members of the PC community and that there needed to be a mechanism for management to enforce TRWLB regarding pets. Furthermore, it was noted that over the years the rules governing pet behavior have been consistently violated. Therefore, two additional resolutions were presented to the Board. In a vote of 5 to 2, the Board passed a resolution regarding the registration of pets. While the specific details are still being worked New Owners June/July 2015 NEWCOMER UNIT FROM: CITY, STATE/COUNTRY Polly Boegel BR128 Sarasota, FL 34238 Joel Gordon & Melissa Wenig GL338 Cambridge, MA 02138 Ivan & Judith Kazen TR124 Greenwich, NY 12834 Gail Reardon GR209 Watertown, MA 02472 Brian Weiss & Melinda Hayes BA101 Sparks, MD 21152 out, there will be an annual registration process to be held in conjunction with the annual car registration process; there will be a small fee for this process. Upon registration pet owners will receive a special tag to be worn by the pet when outside. All pet owners, except those with service animals or emotional support animals, shall renew or cancel their pet registration on an annual basis. Registration will require the unit owner’s name and contact information, pet license and number, name, age, weight class, color, distinguishing marks and a photo of the pet. And, in compliance with state and federal regulations, Pelican Cove passed a resolution regarding the approval of emotional support animals (a vote of 4 to 3). Emotional support animals need only be registered once, but may renew annually to obtain a current tag if they choose. Further, those lessees who wish to obtain and live with an emotional support animal shall present documentation (the Office has copies of a sample letter) from a physician, psychiatrist, social worker or other licensed mental health professional that the animal provides support. Other actions at the May Board meeting included the unanimous approval of: • The purchase of supplemental flood insurance for 1503-1507 Clower Creek, Far Harbor, thus brining coverage up to the 80 percent. • The resurfacing of the Far Harbor pool. Hurricane Season is Here! Now is the time to make your evacuation plans. Don’t wait to gather your supplies: bottled water, non-perishable food, first aid kit, etc. If you will need assistance evacuating your unit, it is important that you pre-register by calling the Sarasota County Special Needs Registration at (941) 861-5000.

JUNE / JULY 2015 11 And the Winners were Everyone! (photos by Alice Hawrilenko) A Special prize for creativity went to the Angel Table! Participants were Sally Billington, Back to is Thelma Bold, barely seen is Kay Reich, Clare Walker, Nancy Walsh, Sally Billington (back to) and David Bold the devil in back and winner of best male costume. The missing angel is Alberta Gregory. To the left under her parasol is the lovely Louise Rivera who took away the lady’s prize for best costume. Lea Buschgans bearing “baskets” of hors d’ouvres heads for her table clearly approving the contents of her armload. Donna Anderson was the coordinator for this, the Cove’s first Diner en Blanc. Congratulations Donna. It was a resounding success!  Judy Limekiller and Kenny DeCamp put the finishing touches on their table. Kenny, together with Lisa Yellin (who spent much of her time in the kitchen and out of camera range) coordinated the picnic menu for the event. From baguettes to Fromage, chicken to caviar, the menu was a hit. Nancy Golden tunes her harp in preparation for serenading the party goers. The music was heavenly given that it was performed only a few feet away from the Angel table! Iris Bergas and Joel Leonard teamed up to provide music for the event and what a team they made! Elinor Chovnick waits peacefully on the Wilbanks lawn for her turn to be caricatured by artist Michael White.

JUNE / JULY 2015 12 Writers Group Wants Your Tales! Being a St. Louis Fan Pays Off This is not a contest. All submissions will be accepted, edited only if necessary and with the writer’s permission, and collected in booklet form to be shared sometime during 20152016 season to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the creation of our 731-unit strong Association!. By Jan Hasselbring Submissions should be 800-1000 words, typed if at all possible, double spaced, preferably in Word format, with any biographical information you wish to include. They can be emailed to janhasselbring@yahoo.com or veetash@comcast. net or brought to the Office, to the Writers’ Group box, clearly marked, “Tales Out of Pelican Cove.” Please let us know if you would be willing to read your story. Tales Out of Pelican Cove – The following story is an example of the type of story we are looking for. Although, a bit “lightweight” in content, it’s a vignette that incorporates both past and present, is entertaining and provides a brief window into someone’s life. Virginia Tashian’s story on page 8 was written for the same purpose. In January, 2015, my husband, Don was waiting to undergo back surgery at the Surgical Center in Sarasota. We were in the pre op room, when the anesthesiologist arrived. Dr. Lee was describing his procedure when Don stopped him. “Is that a St. Louis logo on your shirt?” Sure enough, it was. When Don revealed that he was born in St. Louis and was a Cardinals’ fan, a huge smile spread across the doctor’s face. From that moment on, the atmosphere in the room changed from a doctor/patient relationship to the animated comradery of fellow Cardinals’ fans sharing their experiences. Turns out, they had been to many of the same games, including one in at Wrigley Field in Chicago last fall where they had sat near each other and both had tickets for the Cardinals/Orioles spring training game coming up in March. As he left the pre op room, Don joked, “Take good care of me Doc.” In the operating room, the last thing Don remembered, before he lost consciousness, was Dr. Lee saying to the surgeon, “Take special care of this one Doc. He’s a Cardinals’ fan.” Did you know that the pineapple plant originated in South America? It didn’t reach Hawaii until the early nineteenth century.
