Lake Sarasota Yard Sale Nov. 12th

The next Lake Sarasota Yard Sale is November 12th - that's a Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. You can of course choose to say open longer or shorter, but those hours will be posted on our ads in the paper and Craigslist.

This season's sale won't include any tables for food or information, and no maps, so be sure to put some balloons or other eyecatchers on your mailbox.

If between now and then you see any landscaping or other issues that should be addressed, please let us know - thanks.


Plans for the expansion of Bee Ridge Road are likely to call for creating roundabouts at several points along Bee Ridge east of I-75.

Traffic experts say installing roundabouts results in remarkable reductions in accidents:

Don't forget to come to the public meeting set for Thursday, Dec. 8th where you'll have a chance to get a view of the project, and to speak with planners from the county. And don't forget the Lake Sarasota Community Group meeting the same evening at 7 pm.
