Regarding editorial “Longboat Commission Masters The Art of Clumsy Defeat” To: Editor Your Friday, July 8 editorial states: “The voters of Longboat Key wanted to see their neighborhoods undergrounded.” In one sense, this is true because, “wanted” is past tense.  Some of those who “wanted,” now do not want.

Storm and commission meeting disappointing To: Editor Although I thought we were under a storm watch on Monday night, I went to an LBK Commissioners meeting because I had not gone for a while.

Mar Vista expansion considerations To: Planning and Zoning Board Chair Jim Brown Jim, the new proposal by Ed Chiles, to re-position the Mar Vista indoor seating onto the ground floor, is, I think a more neighborhood-friendly option than elevating the added light and noise above the boarder vegetation. However, again we have a grandfathered non-conforming [...]
