As no other owner submitted a request to run for the Board, all five Board members will continue to serve on the Board for the additional two years and no election needs to be held. The other four Board members (Ewa Hammer, Bill McKay, Chris Smenos and Lisa Yellin) continue to serve on the Board until February, 2016. The officers, who will serve for the year February 2015-February 2016, will be elected by the members of the Board immediately following the Annual Meeting on February 21.

The January Board meeting was held on January 13, one week earlier than originally scheduled, as the Board needed to vote on one issue before January 15. In total, four resolutions were discussed, two of which were voted on while the Board postponed a vote on the other two pending more information. The latter two resolutions were subsequently voted on at a second Board meeting on January 20. Proxy Vote at Annual Meeting Limiting Ownership of Nonresident Controlled Entities to One Unit – The Board voted 7-2 in favor of the proxy vote at the second meeting after receiving a modified text from the Association’s attorney. This vote will now be included in the package sent out to all owners asking for their general proxy to hold the annual meeting.

FEBRUARY 2015 3 President’s Post Murray Sherry Board of Directors/Committee Meetings Fellow owners, I have both good and not-so-good news for you. First, the good news! All five members of the Board of Directors, whose terms expire on February 21, have stepped forward and agreed to run for new terms. It has been a harmonious year among the Directors that has led each and every one of them to want to contribute to the running of the Association for another two years. Now, the not-so-good news! The five members of the Board of Directors, whose terms expire on February 21, are the only candidates that put forth their names for election to new two-year terms. I am disappointed that no new Board candidates stepped forward. Committee chairs and longstanding committee members, consider Board membership the next time around. Committee meetings scheduled for the months of February. Check Channels 195, the PC website or the Office for any changes. The lack of volunteers extends beyond the Board and includes our committees. They also meet monthly, usually starting up in October or November and continuing until April or May. Most of the ideas of how to improve life in the Cove germinate at the committee level. The most impressive recent example was the upgrade of the conference room in the Harbor Club, which was completed this past summer. There is a new article in this issue of the PC News summarizing what is being discussed at the committee meetings (See pg. 4) Check it out. Buildings & Facilities Committee Friday, February 6 – 9 a.m. Wilbanks Conference Room I recognize that the base of PC volunteers has been lately reduced. Over 200 condos have been sold in the past four years. A number of these were sold to younger owners who were purchasing for the future and have rented their properties in the interim. As for those new owners who bought to become residents, it takes time to become involved in the governance of the Association. This past year, several newer owners have joined one or more of our standing committees. This is a good sign and a significant step to getting involved. Finance Committee Audit Review Friday, February 20 – 9:30 a.m. Wilbanks Conference Room A personal note! It is time for new blood in the presidency of Pelican Cove. Fellow Board members, look around you and select your next president from among yourselves.

FEBRUARY 2015 4 Committee Doings, January Committee Liaisons This column used to appear in the PC News on a regular basis to keep owners aware of subjects being discussed at the committee level. We hope to continue the tradition. Bay & Water (January 8): Unless a new committee chair is found, the February meeting may be the final meeting of the B&W Committee; however, the Committee members will still support the March 24 Coffee Program with Rob Wright speaking. Members will also continue to work with the Harbor Committee in regards to dredging and to improving the functionality of drains and other solutions that improve the Cove and the Bay. Buildings & Facilities (January 9): B&F forwarded to the Board a resolution on pressure washing common elements. The Committee has agreed to move ahead with the detailed design of two projects: modifying the Fitness Room including removing the Sauna, and designing the post-andbeam balconies in the Brookhouses. A possible solution to the drainage problem near BR162 will be to exchange a visitors parking area with an assigned area. Three items will be brought up at the next meeting: the Gatehouse project, the problem with the fishing ladder at the Point, and dryer vent maintenance. The LED lighting discussion has been tabled until the April meeting. Communications (January 13): Discussion focused on the new Meet and Greet Meetings, in particular the frequency of the meetings and whether they need to be held as often as planned. The group decided to continue the ones that were scheduled for January and February and revisit the frequency for next season. The Chair announced that she will be submitting a name to the Board for the PC News editor position. Updates on the bulletin boards, recycling signage, and the website redesign were also presented. Cultural Events (January 8): For the 2016 season, the Committee is reviewing CD’s from two performers. Three 2016 dates are already confirmed. Finance (January 16): The Committee agreed to begin a process for reviewing capital expenditure requests prior to their presentation to the Board. The aim of this process is to assure that all aspects of such requests – from their economics and justifications, to the sources of their funding – are in as sound a form as possible prior to submission to the Board. The Committee agreed to be accountable for policy advice relating to the appropriate usage, fund balances, and replenishment of the Contingency and General Funds. Grounds (January 14): The shell path along Bayhouses 1 and 2 has been widened. Our booster-pump water program with the County and Benderson is running more efficiently than planned and we plan to continue with this project. The Committee discussed tree health, of both the melaleucas along the main drive and the canopy as a whole. There might be a need to remove/replace more trees in 2015 than was planned in the budget. More detailed information will be made available for the February meeting. Harbor (January 7): There are 31 empty boat slips and 28 owners waiting for kayak racks. Several solutions to increase the number of kayak racks were proposed: increasing space at our current sites, maximizing the utilization of the current sites, and establishing floating docks at the east end of the harbor. Management presented several cost estimates; however, the cost of the floating docks still needs to be researched. On February 4, a meeting will be held with Kristy Tignor, Consulting Marine Engineer, to discuss dredging and water run-off issues. Insurance (no meeting scheduled): Planning (January 8): The Chairs of all the other committees indicated an interest in meeting together to exchange information on committee projects so as to avoid overlap and enhance cooperation. A public forum on climate change, sponsored by Planning, will be held on February 24. The Committee voted to present to the Board the resolution needing a unit owners’ vote that limits unit ownership. The Committee will discuss an owner survey of Pelican Cove issues at its February meeting. continued on page 14 Annual Grounds Tour Sam Alaimo Once again the Grounds Committee and our Grounds Coordinator, Mike O’Byrne, are sponsoring the Annual Grounds Tour of Pelican Cove. Due to its popularity, we will continue to offer three tours. The tour dates are: Tuesday, February 24; Wednesday, February 25; and Thursday, February 26. Each tour will begin at 10:30 a.m. and will end around Noon. Participants are asked to meet promptly in front of The Wilbanks at 10:15 a.m. Registration for the tours will take place on Tuesday, February 17 from 9:30 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. at the Pavilion gazebo. There is room for 25 per session. Owners and renters are invited to register. If the tours are not full, registration will continue in the PC office. Each year we visit different parts of the Cove to observe the many completed projects, and learn about our wonderful flora. You will be transported in golf carts to all sites; however, you should be prepared to walk during the tour.

FEBRUARY 2015 6 Green Sarasota Expands Recycle Efforts Alice Hawrilenko Sarasota County recycling has changed – it’s now mandatory. Nearly every plastic container, except for styrofoam and deli-tray type containers, can now go in the recycle bins. The Communications Committee has prepared new informational placards with the help of the PC Office. They have been posted on the doors of the recycle containment areas, and printed on the reverse of the calendar in the February issue of the PC News. Here are highlights of the changes in the Green Sarasota County program: Flattened cardboard pizza boxes no longer need to go in the trash. Recycle them instead. Shredded paper should be placed in paper bags or the special plastic recycling bags formulated for shredded paper. (available at Staples) Regular plastic bags, plastic grocery bags, dry cleaner plastic, cellophane and the like cannot be recycled and should be discarded in the trash. The county has prepared an updated guide to Sarasota Recycling which can be downloaded from their website. You will find a link to the guide at: https://scgov.net/ResidentialSolidWaste/Pages/default Please review them and make every effort to participate in this ever-evolving program. Remember, it is mandatory in our county. What’s up with the Bulletin Boards? Erlinda Rejino Our outdoor bulletin boards remain a key communication tool. However, they are really crowded during the season. The Communications Committee is piloting a way of increasing the posting space. Six bulletin boards, those with six or fewer full size (8.5 x11) display sleeves, were modified as follows: • Two full-size sleeves remain, specifically for the weekly class, multiple-listing poster and the Pelican University information; • The remaining full-size sleeves were removed and each was replaced with two half-size sleeves; • The half-sized sleeves (8.5 x 5.5) are attached in a lateral position. After the modification, a bulletin board that had six display spaces now has ten display spaces, a 66% increase of separate posting spaces. What does this mean for groups posting information? Normally, 30 copies of posters are printed in order to have continued on page 14 Pressure Washing or Cleaning of Finishes Added by Owners to Common Elements Jack Stevens To maintain the cleanliness and safety of the community, the Association pressure washes common element and limited common element decks, patios, lanais, walkways, etc., as part of its maintenance program and as requested by work orders. Over time, owners have altered these areas by applying paint, tile, epoxy, or other finishes to the surfaces. These altered finishes belong to the unit owner(s) and maintenance of them is the responsibility of the current owner. These altered areas have delayed the staff’s maintenance program, as items not owned by the Association could not be cleaned on schedule. The Buildings & Facilities Committee recommended that the Association should maintain the common elements without bypassing areas or being delayed by working around altered finishes. Based on the Buildings & Facilities Committee recommendation, the Board of Directors passed a resolution at the January Board meeting that allows the Association to maintain these areas without becoming liable for damage done to owner finishes during cleaning or pressure washing activities. The resolution contains the following items: 1. The Association will pressure wash or clean common element exterior decks, patios, lanais, walkways, etc., that have owner applied finishes as part of a regular maintenance schedule or as requested by work orders when needed. 2. Unit owners remain responsible for the maintenance of finishes applied by them or by prior owners who installed them. 3. The Association will not be responsible for the replacement or repair of owner-applied finishes damaged during pressure washing or cleaning activity. 4. Owners, who do not want the Association to pressure wash or clean their finishes, shall provide a written request that their areas be excluded. Once the request has been received, the areas will be excluded from all future cleanings. This resolution improves staff’s ability to maintain your property. We are proactively pressure washing and cleaning many surfaces around the property. If you do not want your area washed and cleaned by the Association, be sure to provide written notice to the PC Office.

FEBRUARY 2015 7 Cultural Events Committee Presents courses at the Paris Conservatoire, the Geneva Conservatoire, the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, Yonsei University in Seoul, and Toho Gakuen in Tokyo. Earl Kaplan Cultural Events Committee Presents a Cello/ Piano Concert on February 16, at 8 p.m., in the Pelican Pavilion. Emilio Colon, cellist Pelican Cove Cultural Concerts Derek Han, pianist An extensive international career has taken Colon throughout North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia. His recordings are featured on the Enharmonic, Centaur, Zephyr, and Lyras labels. He currently records for Klavier as solo cellist, chamber musician, conductor, and composer under the label. Most recent engagements include soloist with the Classical Symphony Orchestra of Guatemala, The Texas Festival Orchestra, The Texas Festival Chamber Orchestra and the Orquesta de Camara Concerto in Puerto Rico; Barge Music in New York City; concerts at the Casals Festival of Prades, La Musica International Chamber Festival in Sarasota and recital tours throughout Europe and Asia. At the age of 26, Colon was appointed to the faculty of the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, and has since established himself as one of the most sought-after pedagogues in the country. He has been invited to offer Stan Hendricks Jazz Concert Series Bobby Barnhardt Big things come in small packages – pearls in an oyster shell; Godiva chocolates in golden foil; a stick of dynamite; and Melanie Massell. Seasoned, spicy, saucy and sassy, this petite 4’10”, curly red-headed vocal song-stylist delivers every song with the smoothness of a pearl, the richness of Godiva and the explosion of TNT – all at Melanie Massell Colon, a good friend of the late Laszlo Varga, our worldrenowned resident cellist, will dedicate the concert to him and play a specific work, the Romanian Folk Dances of Bartok in his honor. Derek Han is without a doubt among the leading American pianists of his generation. His elegant, polished and compelling playing has dazzled audiences across six continents. Though he was originally identified with the concertos of Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven – not least because he recorded them all to highly favorable critical response – he possesses a vast repertory that includes the concertos of Mendelssohn, Chopin, and MacDowell, as well as individual concertos by Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky, and Shostakovich, in addition to a large body of solo and chamber works. Han was a precocious child, becoming proficient on the piano at an early age, and then graduated from Juilliard at 18. Han’s breakthrough came in 1977 when he captured First Prize at the Athens International Piano Competition. He thus experienced a meteoric rise in the late ʼ70s and early ʼ80s, appearing as soloist with leading European and American orchestras and as a recitalist and chamber player at an array of important concert locales. He began to appear regularly at the Marlboro Music Festival (at the behest of Rudolf Serkin) and at many major concert venues in the United States and Europe: New York, St. Louis, Buenos Aires, Amsterdam, Milan, Berlin, London, Warsaw, Moscow, and elsewhere. Tickets will be distributed on Monday, February 16 between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. and at 7 p.m. at the Pavilion. We appreciate a contribution of $5 per ticket. Reserved seating will only be available for our “Benefactor” contributors. Many thanks to all our contributors. once.

During January the Website Review Committee had its first look at the revisions to the website. The orientation of the menu was changed from a vertical menu on the left margin to a horizontal menu across the top with fewer categories. The need to reorganize the “many” menu items was identified as a key issue in the focus groups last year. Work continues on getting the current website data organized to fit the new layout. The new website will have the capacity to have a page devoted to each Board Recognized Club or Group. The Website Review Committee will be contacting the group leaders to share the template that will be used and identify the data for each club. continued on page 14 Pelican Cove Social Club Art Blum On Sunday, February 22, Annette Zaffiro will host the Social Club at the Pavilion at 5:30 p.m. Albeit a few days late, the theme will be Valentines Day and love will be in the air… or at least love songs, as our own Sheryn Deis will be performing many of your favorite romantic ballads and standards. Annette asks to keep your eyes open for additional details regarding this event to be posted on the area bulletin boards. Beth Duggan reports that the December 14 Holiday Party was a great success. There was plenty of good food, dancing and holiday cheer. On behalf of Toys for Tots and the Pelican Cove Social Club, a huge “Thank You” goes out to the many generous guests that donated toys to make the children’s holiday a little happier! On January 25, Lea Buschgans hosted a Hawaiian Luau at the Pelican Pavilion. There was a poolside happy-hour at the Tiki Bar followed by a dinner of Polynesian cuisine and entertainment. Guests donned their best Hawaiian attire, and joined us for an evening of fun! A final reminder to all members and those wishing to join the Pelican Cove Social Club: 2015 Dues of $15 per individual were due in January.

FEBRUARY 2015 Run, Don’t Walk To The February Pelican Programs! Felice Perlmutter and Libby Ross More treats are in store in February for enthusiastic Pelican Covers as they come to enjoy more off-beat Pelican Programs. A completely different program is planned for Tuesday, February 17, 8 p.m. in the Harbor Club. We are all fascinated by “drones” and will now have the opportunity to learn more about how drones work, the use of drones and the ethical considerations involved. The program will be in the form of an interview as Sidney Axinn, Professor Emeritus in Philosophy, Temple University, an expert in the question of ethics and their implications in modern use and in warfare, will respond to questions posed by Daniel Perlmutter, Professor Emeritus in Chemical Engineering, University of Pennsylvania. You will be invited to further the conversation by asking questions that will clarify the uses of this new technology and the pros and cons involved. Make a note on your March calendars to reserve Tuesday, March 3, when Dina Labes will discuss and show video examples of the career of Mikhail Baryshnikov, one of the greatest ballet dancers in history. We suggest you read the bulletin boards for all of our announcements and we know you will enjoy these events with us. A one-time voluntary contribution of $5 for the season is suggested. Mark Your Calendars! 9 Pelican Cove University Alice Levine The Pelican Cove University season has opened with a bang! Over 200 residents attended the Expo on January 5 to hear the instructors describe their classes. The next day classes began, and have been very well attended. All have been scheduled in the more spacious, newly-renovated Harbor Club with two exceptions. Both music classes are to be held in the Pavilion. Feedback from the many students and instructors has been positive. Instructors are still working out seating arrangements and audio visual changes in the new Harbor Club classroom. All new things take time to figure out, but our hardworking staff and committee are trying hard to accommodate everyone’s needs. Improvements are being made every day! Most classes begin in January, but don’t forget the two classes starting in March, Current Events – starts on Wednesday, March 11, 10:30 a.m.-noon, and Modern Architecture and Newtown Planning in the Twentyfirst Century, with four sessions beginning Thursday, March 5 at 1:30 p.m. The architecture course is being taught by Robert Cassaway.

FEBRUARY 2015 10 Kayak and Canoe Club From the Library Frank Rivera Betty Mitchell On Saturday, January 10, Pelican Cove Kayakers showed up at the Little Manatee River and made the ten-mile run downstream. We arrived at the Canoe Outpost at 9 a.m. and were all loaded onto an old school bus that had to tow a rig full of kayaks, and one canoe. The bus took us ten miles upstream to our launch site. The water was fairly low with a 2.5 mph current. Initially, this seemed to be an easy paddle, but that was a misconception. During the heavy summer rains, many of the large trees found along the river banks got washed into the river. During the fall the Outpost staff use chain saws to cut passages through these tangled obstructions. THANK YOU, THANK YOU! The library staff would like to say a special thank you to Mickey and Marcia Schonberger’s family for the more than 11 boxes of beautiful hardcover and paperback books they donated to the Pelican Cove Library. We also found old stumps and large limbs left over from last year. At each and every obstruction, the flow of water tended to speed up and form a spillway. A paddler had to stay focused in order to position a kayak for the proper entry into a cut. One mistake in this fast moving water ensured that the kayak would get pinned up against a tree stump, and then would have to back up out of the current and start all over again. At times there were two or three turns, one after the other, which complicated things. It didn’t take very long for everyone to learn how to judge the speed and angles to negotiate the obstacles. We had lunch on a wide, sandy beach that was big enough to haul out 19 kayaks. Both banks were full of briar patches with thick thorns. This didn’t stop several of our crew from climbing through them to collect oranges, tangerines and grapefruit that lined the banks, returning with their arms full. Weather permitting, our next paddle will be on Sunday, February 8 to Linger Lodge on the Braden River. After that, we will go to The Spanish Point Marina on Sunday, February 28. In addition, we received books from John Adler in memory of his wife, Viola; the family of Barry Cohen donated a huge box of CDs from his extensive, music library; and a thank you goes to Murry and Leona Brochin for seven boxes of “like new” hardcover and paperback books they did not have room for in their condo. All of the books and CD’s are current and in perfect condition! All have been sorted and shelved. Those for which we did not have room were donated to either the Friends of the Library at Gulf Gate or Goodwill Industries for their book store on Clark Road. We are very grateful for the variety of all the books donated and know the residents of Pelican Cove will enjoy their generosity for some time to come. A Notice for Our 1st Time Residents: Only the DVD’s and VCR’s need to be signed out for a 3-day limit on the one-disc items. There is no sign out for books, and no time limit for returns. Magazines should be returned as soon as possible, as notes have been left by some residents requesting prompt returns. Book returns do not need to be shelved; just put them in the wooden box under the sign-out sheet for movies! Donations of six books or less can be put in the black basket next to the desk and wall. MOVIE NIGHT Earl Kaplan New Owners Welcome Two movie nights this month: Sunday, February 1 and Sunday, February 15 at 7 p.m. at the Pelican Pavilion.

FEBRUARY 2015 11 February Coffee Programs Janet Hasselbring On Friday, February 6 at 7 p.m. in the Pelican Pavilion the Coffee Program will be “High Voltage” with students from Sarasota Academy of the Arts. Power! Energy! Electrical Current! Sounds exciting! Invigorating! So what’s up? Thirty-three talented and energetic students, comprising the advanced-auditioned show choir from Sarasota Academy of the Arts will take the stage in the Pavilion to provide some high voltage. Student performers from Sarasota Academy of the Arts This cabaret-style troupe has performed at many venues in and around Sarasota, including at the Waterside Stage at Downtown Disney. The audition process for a group to perform at Disney is quite rigorous, so these students felt very fortunate to be selected, and we, in turn, are fortunate to have them come to Pelican Cove. An Evening with Georgia O’Keeffe Phyllis Camesano Famed artist, Georgia O’Keeffe, comes to life Monday, February 23, 7:30 p.m. in the Pelican Pavilion when actress Jenny Aldrich impersonates O’Keeffe and, in the artist’s own words, discusses her work, ideas and life. With O’Keeffe’s artwork full screen and Aldrich adeptly in character, the audience gets an intimate look at O’Keeffe as Mark your calendars for this lively performance at the Pavilion. Participants are asked to contribute a $3 donation. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. On Wednesday, February 25, 9:30 a.m., in the Pelican Pavilion, there will be A Virtual Museum Tour with PC resident Ralph Schiller. How would you like to visit famous museums and view their artifacts, paintings and sculpture without having to leave the comfort of your seat? You can do just that, when Schiller presents a Grounds for Sculpture, Hamilton, NJ photographic program of museums he’s visited. Because he considers these photos art, he will discuss issues of presentation through his view on editing photographs. He will also provide some historical perspectives on several of the art works shown. Though a professor of physics by profession, Schiller has always been interested in photography, taking photographs in his teens. But, he became a more serious photographer about ten years ago, when he came to Pelican Cove and became engaged with serious photographers. This program, fittingly, is cosponsored by the PC Photography Club, of which Schiller is a valued member. Check out their stunning website: pelicancovephotographyclub.zenfolio.com Mark your calendars: 9:30 a.m. coffee; 10 program. Donations accepted at the door. she wryly comments on her sensational flowers, the New York Art World in the 1920s, her breakdown, her constant battles with the critics, and her extraordinary relationship with photographer Alfred Stieglitz. O’Keeffe is one of several female artists that Aldrich portrays in her different performances at museums, colleges, libraries and numerous other venues. In each situation, Aldrich combines her theatrical training with extensive research and her love of art. The hour-long performance is made possible by a donation to the PC Art Club. The event is free and open to all PC residents. Jenny Aldrich

FEBRUARY 2015 12 PC Writers Events By Janet Hasselbring The Circus Came To Pelican Cove! Libby Ross On Monday, February 23 at 7 p.m., Pelican Cove Writers Present “History with Mystery” with Louise Titchener at the Harbor Club. Ms. Titchener will talk about writing the historical mystery novel. She will discuss the history of the mystery novel, and her own history as a novelist. She is the author of over 40 published novels in a variety of genres, including romance, science fiction, fantasy and mystery. In addition to her fiction writing, she has written articles for magazines and newspapers, and reviewed books for the Washington Post. Her latest novel, “Hard Water”, is the third in the Oliver Redcastle series. “Hard Water” is set in 1884 on the Lake Erie Island, where Louise spends her summers. Be at the Harbor Club with Carol McAfee and George Kaufman on Monday, March 2 at 7 p.m. McAfee and Kaufman will share the podium for what promises to be an enjoyable evening celebrating the art of writing. McAfee will discuss alcoholism and the impact on families and read from her new novel, “How To Live Without a Mother”. We knew the January 5 opening Pelican Program in 2015 would be special. We knew there would be the unexpected, but we were still surprised when half-way through Jerry Bilik’s wonderful program on the origins of the circus in Sarasota – Bilik at the Circus – two unexpected stars walked through the doors of the Pavilion. Dolly Jacobs and Pedro Reis of the Circus Sarasota joined Jerry on stage, delighting an overflow audience. Dolly described growing up with her internationally famous clown father Lou Jacobs, what it was like as a young girl to travel on the circus train from town to town, and her growing conviction that she wanted to fly, to become an aerialist. Reis described his path from South Africa to wanting to soar higher and more dangerously on the flying trapeze than anyone else. Today, through the formation of the non-profit Circus Arts Conservatory, Sarasota is the richer. What a pair! What an evening! The PC writers will hold their first Writers’ Fair on Tuesday, March 10, 6-9 p.m. The Writer’s Fair will offer residents an opportunity to view books/writing of the writers of the Cove, along with live readings and brief discourses by selected writers.

FEBRUARY 2015 13 Climate Change Forum on February 24 Tennis Club This year’s Public Policy Forum will be held at the Pavilion on February 24, 7:30 p.m. The growing national debate over what steps must be taken to deal effectively with the consequences of global warming and what steps must be taken to halt the rise in emission of greenhouse gases, provide the context for this discussion. The focus will be local as well as national in scope, providing insights into what is happening in Sarasota County and what more we can do here in Pelican Cove. The Tennis Club is in full swing with many opportunities for you to join us and play. At the last club meeting the group voted unanimously to expand its Round Robin hours of play every morning 8:30-10 a.m. and 10-11:30 a.m. at both sets of courts. The goal is to increase the opportunities for all to play even if they don’t have a scheduled game, and to meet others with whom they can play at other times. The Tuesday and Thursday afternoon Round Robin will continue 3-5 p.m.  The Forum will include a panel of experts who will respond to questions from the audience. Professor David Triggle will lead off with a brief overview of the consensus views of climate scientists. Ms. Lee Hayes Byron, Manager Sustainability Sarasota County, will share the concerns of our local government and their plans for dealing with climate change. Susan and John Darovec, Bradenton residents and active members of the national non-partisan Citizen’s Climate Lobby will describe their organization’s proposal to Congress to enact a revenue neutral measure to reduce carbon emissions by creating a carbon tax. Willard Block, a member of the PC Planning Committee, will be the moderator. Club business meetings are held on the first Monday of the month at The Wilbanks at noon. Pictured below is coach Mike Price, who is at the Cove for clinics on Saturdays at 11 a.m. and on Wednesday nights at 6 p.m. at the Harbor Club Courts. Willard Block and Lou Levitt The Forum grows out of the work of two PC University classes: “Making a Difference in Influencing Public Policy” taught by Professor Lou Levitt and “Science and Technology” taught by Prof. David Triggle. The planning for the Forum was aided by discussions of the PC Planning Committee, which is considering how Pelican Cove can prepare for the significant climate changes to be expected. To prepare for the Forum, members of the PC University class on “Making a Difference” will be viewing documentary films on climate change on two Tuesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. at the Harbor Club, January 27 and February 4. The film showings will be open to all and will be followed by discussion. At the close of the Forum, there will be refreshments during which the presenters and panelists will be able to meet with attendees and follow through in individual discussion. Information Box Joan Lappin Tennis coach Mike Price The Social tournament is held the second Monday of every month 9 a.m.-noon, followed by lunch.

FEBRUARY 2015 14 Meet Your Neighbor: An Interview with Louise Titchener Donna Anderson Pelican Cove can once again lay claim to an ‘author in residence’. John and Louise Louise Titchener Titchener rented here during the winter of 2012, then retired and bought a condo the following year. John, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at University of Maryland, Baltimore, enjoys retirement and thus far has not been enticed to teach a class at Pelican Cove University. It is proving to be more difficult for Louise. Though many may know her as a fellow student, kayaker, sculptor and artist, few might appreciate that she is a gifted and prolific writer, publishing 40+ novels in numerous genres. She’s taught “Writing the Novel” at Johns Hopkins and Howard Community College, and Creative Writing for other continuing education programs. She has won awards and been translated into scores of languages, including Chinese. Book blurbs, written by no less than Nora Roberts, Eileen Dreyer and Barbara D’Amato, pepper the back covers of her mysteries. Her retirement came fully to an end last year when she published the third in a series of historical novels, “Hard Water”, an Oliver Redcastle Mystery. Louise began her writing career freelancing for the Columbia Flier, a subsidiary of the Baltimore Sun. There, in a critique group, she met other aspiring novelists. They researched and learned that romance was the most publishable genre, so they concentrated their writing to that end. Interestingly, three of the foursome had never read romance. They loaded their shopping carts with Harlequin novels, discussed what they found, and collaboratively wrote “Love is Elected,” selling it to Simon & Schuster. After publishing a second novel, the team regrouped, and Louise co-wrote with one, then another, and finally launched her solo career in the mid-80’s. She says she owes much of her IRA balance to romance, publishing 15 titles under Harlequin alone. She has young-adult and science-fiction fantasy titles to her credit, along with successful mystery series in both modern day and 1880’s Baltimore. Moreover, she has diversified by-lines, writing under her own as well as eight additional pennames. Her last novel continues the historical Baltimore character, Oliver Redcastle, to a covert operation in Put-InBay, Ohio, the Titchener’s summer island residence. She is learning more about our adopted state’s history, and we may soon look forward to the Pinkerton agent’s adventures in 19th century Florida. She has a yen to write literary fiction. Like many, Louise has diverse interests, and wasn’t satisfied with only verbal creative expression.   “I do like to paint and have sold a few paintings. I enjoy painting figures and landscapes in oil and have shown my work at the PC Art Show. I’ve tried other mediums but always seem to come back to oil. Currently, I’m honored to have an oil painting hanging at The Wilbanks. I did a couple of book covers for mysteries published by Hard Shell, specifically, ‘Buried in Baltimore’ and ‘Bumped off in Baltimore’.  That was probably not a good idea as I don’t think my covers are so great. I like the cover Mundania gave me for “Hard Water”, though the guy on the front doesn’t look the way I picture Oliver.” You can learn more about Louise’s career when she hosts Writers’ Present, on February 23, 7 p.m. at the Harbor Club. Committee Doings, from page 4 Rules (January 26): The Rules Committee is sending the following recommendations to the Board: 1) to place a ‘Noise Rule’ in the TRWLB, and 2) to authorize the Rules Committee to offer informal neighbor-to-neighbor dispute resolution. Other issues discussed were: for sale signs on cars/bikes, number of times a year renters or guests are allowed during owner’s absence, parking of trucks in PC and dog registration. What’s up with the Bulletin Boards, from page 6 at least one poster available for each board. At least six of the posters will need to be the half-size format. During the “high” season not every board ever has every poster, but this season the smaller boards now have a better chance to provide more information for the community. Depending on the feedback received regarding increasing the posting space by using smaller display sleeves, the Communications Committee will determine whether to make this change on other bulletin boards in the future. The topic will be on the Committee’s agenda in March and April. We look forward to hearing your thoughts. Website Word, from page 8 We still need those new photographs for the website. We are looking for great shots of our lovely grounds and all the different activities that occur (social, recreational, and business) and shots of the various facilities. If you have a picture you would like to submit for consideration, please attach a full-size jpeg file and send it to pcwebsitereview@ gmail.com or contact Erlinda Rejino at 518-728-5129 to make other arrangements.

Last year, 80% of those voting were in favor of the ownership restriction; however, with only about 480 of owners voting, the positive vote did not reach the target of 2/3 of 731 possible votes.

An overall theme of the course is what Robert calls “Starchitects” of both genders. These are famous designers of well known buildings and developments like the Apple stores. Approving Employee Benefit Plans for 2015-16 – The Board voted unanimously to approve the plans which were unchanged from the previous year. By committing to a full-year agreement by January 15, the Association will be paying only 15% more for the employees’ health plan instead of 30%. Application by Get Fit (GF) to Become a Board-Recognized Group – After gathering the details of Exercise To Go (ETG), an existing Board-recognized exercise group, at the second meeting the Board voted unanimously for Get Fit to be another Board-recognized group.

The final lecture will be “City Planning for the 21st century” and take us from historical examples of single-family houses to the New Urbanismdevelopments such as Seaside and Celebration in Florida, and then on to look at the planning for a carbon neutral city now under construction. The Committee feels that it’s not too early for us to begin to think about the next season of our university.

During the “Owner Comments” phase of the first meeting, an owner in the audience suggested that the Board resubmit for membership voting the resolution, that also failed last year, allowing owners to register and park specific types of trucks. The Board agreed to place the question on the agenda of the second meeting. At that time the Board, by an 8-1 vote, turned down the request to put this issue to an owners’ vote at the February Annual Meeting. Instead, the issue will be sent to the Planning Committee for reconsideration.
