A History That Never Ends…

by Michael Paragon

Sarasota has long been a city of diversity and culture, but little tolerance for change. And so the old guard that has always been in place has progressively managed to maintain a level of “normalcy” over the years.

The challenge happens when the world around Sarasota continues to move forward and we remain where we’ve been for the past 40 years. I, too, believe in maintaining a certain standard, especially when it comes to matters of historic preservation. Sarasota is stuffed to the gills with reasons to glow with pride over our nostalgia. There’s a time and place for those sentiments. Let’s not mince words here though…this is neither that time nor that place.

This is where we fight for our tomorrow…not against anyone other than ourselves!

Ciao for now…me
