Do you have any plans to celebrate the Kentucky Derby this weekend?
Jack and Kathy Mann
“We don’t have plans this year, but we actually went to the Kentucky Derby once. We drank mint juleps and had an absolute blast. It was a huge social event. The only bad part was the traffic leaving the race afterwards.”
“I’m not sure if there are any Derby parties going on or anything. I think I might drink a mint julep or wear a big hat. Or both!”
“I’m from Louisville, so I grew up right there in the shadow of Churchill Downs. When I was young we would sneak through the fence and watch the races.”
Anne and Mark Burnell
“We’ll probably watch the race. It’s not one of our favorite sports to watch, although we do love riding horses.”
“I’m from Michigan, so the Kentucky Derby isn’t a big event where I’m from. It’s a huge party weekend down here in Florida though. It’s definitely a big Southern thing.”

Can you dig it?
Third- and fourth-grade students of Temple Beth Sholom had a chance to brush up on their paleontology skills last week while digging for faux dinosaur bones.
Sound of scholars
Local students Caleb Upton and Matthew Vaadi received some help for their upcoming studies to the tune of $1,000 each from the Sarasota Chorus of the Keys. The scholarships were made possible through the Sheridan E. Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund. Both students plan to use the funds toward a career in music.
