Sarasota News and Your Commentary

This mini Sarasota News Page is available for you here all in one place. This will make it easy for you to see what's currently going on around our Suncoast area from near and afar and to keep in touch with important area developments and local news of the day.

This is especially good if you're a "snowbird" who likes to keep up on matters while you're away from the Suncoast part of the year.

There's nothing like "being in the know."

Not only does this page feature the big local stories of the day, culled from a wide variety of sources, but, if you have a "nose for news" and have an important story that you want to share, you may do that here as well as add your own editorial comments to other stories you read here.

Who knows, you may even "scoop" the local and national media!

Yes, you may act as reporter and editorialize, or opine here as well.

All we ask is that you keep it civil and respectful of others who come by herel.

You'll not only find Sarasota, Florida news stories here but also news about other nearby Suncoast communities along the southwest Florida gulf coast, plus Florida news as well.

This has been designed to be a one-stop-shop for current Suncoast news and information for you.

In reality, it's a virtual local news network for you to scroll through.

Simply click on the individual story links that you're interested in below. It couldn't be easier! Simply click and read.
