Selectively posting only negative stories from a newspaper about a community does not give a fair or realistic picture of that community.

If you want to play that game, I could post several negatives stories from the Sarasota paper today with headlines such as:

Shawn Tyson found guilty in murders of 2 British tourists

30 year old Sarasota man attempted to choke a 5 year old

15 prescription fraud accounts for Sarasota man

More charges filed against Sarasota kidnapping suspect

North Port man accused of sexually assaulting girl

Port Charlotte family grew hallucinogenic mushrooms




Sarasota and Bradenton are large metro areas. Crime will occur. No community is perfect, not even Disney World. I've lived in the Sarasota - Bradenton area for almost 30 years and have never been a victim of crime, although my work takes me all over both communities into all sorts of neighborhoods. I have many friends scattered throughout the area, living in different neighborhoods of diverse price points. Of those friends, only 1 has experienced a crime, someone took a GPS that he left in his unlocked SUV while parked on a public street.

I wonder why someone would go to such lengths to try to paint a one sided, negative picture of a particular area??


The newspapers also have positive and upbeat stories about Bradenton.

For example, in today's paper is the following story about how Benderson is expanding their commercial footprint in Bradenton in several locations. Today's story included the following comments:


"These great retailers now see vibrancy in west Bradenton," said Mark Chait, executive director of leasing for Benderson. "Marshalls and Fresh Market are very studious and cautionary where they grow, and for them to see that potential really speaks to the area."

Successful retail chains like Marshalls and Fresh Market do extensive, unbiased research and fact finding before committing major funds and expanding into a community, especially considering the current economy, and they think Bradenton is a good place to invest their money.

By the way, Benderson is also investing major money to build an upscale mall on University Parkway in north Sarasota county, less than a mile from the south end of Lakewood Ranch. Construction is finally supposed to start this year with a planned opening sometime in late 2013.
