Jensen takes up new hobby


APRIL FOOLS — If you see Rex Jensen sporting some bright new jewelry, don’t poke fun. Those necklaces, bracelets and anklets actually are part of the Schroeder-Manatee Ranch president and CEO’s new health regimen.

Jensen, on the advice of his doctors, will be beading two days a week at his wife’s shop, Knot Awl Beads. Doctors said the hobby should help alleviate some of Jensen’s stress following a tumultuous few months at Lakewood Ranch Town Hall and the community’s homeowner’s associations.
