Welcome residents, realtors, reporters, and all the buyers and sellers who reached out to me via email reporting what Christi Phelps did to defraud them when Christi was their agent on their Venice, North Port, and Englewood home purchase or sale. Our goal has always been to get a judgement by the Judge against Christi Phelps, and her husband and broker of Corin Bay - Jonathon Erick Phelps so that we can immediately take that judgement to DBPR and FREC so they will discipline and ultimately revoke permanently both their licenses to practice real estate in Florida FOREVER. There is also a $50,000.00 FREC recovery fund for buyers and sellers who were defrauded by Phelps and Corin Bay. All that is required to apply for the recovery fund is a judgement by the court- (which I have told all of you who reached out to us already) The time has come to stop the crooked, dirty, unscrupulous realtors who prey on the banks, stressed sellers who need to sell, and all the buyers who want to buy their dream home in paradise. Christi's time is up- her last dirty deal is done, her good friend Kim Eckman who did all Christi's dirty work via community title is going to jail for embezzling $360,000.00 from her employer-and community title is closed- (tipped off by a audit precipitated by our lawsuit- also called KARMA) Christi's partner in crime - developer David Olshansky , Ratiba Mekki, Gilya Alchits,1285 Gulf Blvd, and the fraud against Suntrust Mortgage has been revealed to the Suntrust fraud recovery department. Thank you Mary Hank from Community Title for turning all records on David Olshansky over to us so we could turn him and Ratiba Mekki in to Suntrust! Thank you Mary for the complete unedited closing file on 805 Laguna! Finally a honest person who wanted to do the right thing. Not to worry Englewood and Venice.

Founded in 1985 with a mission "to perpetuate the legacy of the past and honor the pioneer settlers of the Lemon Bay area.”

The Society grew out of a Pioneer Days Celebration on September 4, 1983 honoring Englewood’s first newspaper editor, Josephine Cortes, author of History of Englewood and Pioneer Days founder. In May, 1984 an organizational meeting was held, and by the next Pioneer Days celebration on September 2, 1984, the Society had organized a mullet roast for 150 people! The mullet was freshly caught by members of the Platt family and Bill Davis and Bob Cashatt foraged some swamp cabbage, which was cooked using Eula Davis’ (Bill’s mother) famous recipe. In 1985, the Lemon Bay Historical Society was officially incorporated as a non-profit organization whose mission was “for the specific purposes of perpetuating the legacy of the past [and] honoring the pioneer settlers of the Lemon Bay area.” Bob Cashatt, also an artist, designed the logo for the Society. We always welcome new members. Membership dues are $15 for a single membership, $20 for a family. Meetings are held on the last Tuesday of the month (generally) from September—April. You do not need to be a historian to join, just someone interested in preserving the history of this small town. If you’re interested in joining, download the following membership form and send it to us with your dues. We’ll welcome you!

Celebrating Old Florida at the Cracker Fair.

For the past 17 years Englewood has been celebrating Old Florida with a Cracker Fair. This year the tradition continues. It is said the term Cracker comes from the cracking of the whip that Florida cow hunters used to herd cattle. Florida was the first cattle producing state in America. The Cracker Fair is the Lemon Bay Historical Society’s gift to the community. It is the culmination of an entire week called “History with Zest, the Lemon Bay Fest” presented by the Englewood libraries.

There will be food vendors, artists, authors, merchants, crafts, music, cracker demonstrations and the ever-popular lemon dessert baking contest.

Historical Society Board member Don Bayley says there will be several great musicians at this year’s fair. “We are pleased to welcome back John Tuff and Friends. This very talented group of musicians will provide music consisting of classic country hits, the kind many of us grew up with on the radio. Good music, good times and great fun!” Starting out as a duo performing for a fundraiser at the Englewood United Methodist Church, the John Tuff group is now in its 11th year singing all over Southwest Florida in a variety of venues.

Also on stage will be James Hawkins. His specialty is crafting and performing songs about our rich local history. A perfect fit for a celebration of Old Florida.

New this year is Paul Chantey. He grew up in New England, hanging out in seaport towns. As a sailor, Chantey was drawn to sea music and chanteys and played and sang in a sea chantey/Irish band for almost 20 years. After moving to Florida, Chantey started writing and singing his own songs, just for the fun of it. Like most things in his life, he tries not to take anything too seriously. Which may be why Paul, born Paul Elliott, calls himself Paul “Chantey.”

The 2020 Cracker Fair will also welcome Bucket List — The Acoustic Version. Rick Holt and Bill Lundgren have both been playing guitar for most of their adult lives. They also both share a love for classic and blues-based rock. They have been in several all-electric bands together since moving to Englewood. More recently, they have taken their favorite electric music and adapted it to acoustic guitar, which makes for a rather interesting acoustic repertoire.

Baking contestants show the breadth and depth of lemon pies and other desserts at Englewood’s annual Cracker Fair on West Dearborn Street. Entries for Lemon Dessert Baking Contest will be accepted from 10-11 a.m. Judging begins at 11 a.m. Winners will be announced at noon

Sarasota County will be 100 years old next year. Author Frank Cassell will discuss “Creating Sarasota,” his new book about Sarasota County's succession from Manatee County in 1921. He’s scheduled to talk 7 p.m. Jan. 28 at the Green Street Church and Museum, 510 S. Indiana Ave., Englewood

Sarasota County’s birth coming to life in Englewood
By STEVE REILLY
STAFF WRITER
ENGLEWOOD — Sarasota County’s birth wasn’t an easy one.
Sarasota community leaders battled their colleagues in Manatee County for years before they achieved their independence with the creation of Sarasota County in 1921. The road to independence for Sarasota was literally a battle for better roads and transportation, as well as ensuring for the county an economically viable future.
The county in its infancy also had to contend with the heyday of the 1920s Florida Land Boom, then the bust and the Great Depression soon to follow.
The Lemon Bay Historical Society invited Frank Cassell to talk about his history, “Creating Sarasota,” and the struggles the county faced to assert its independence from Manatee before becoming a county unto itself in 1921.
Cassell is scheduled to speak at 7 p.m. Jan. 28 at the Historic Green Street Church and Museum, 510 S. Indiana Ave. The event is free (donations will be accepted) and light refreshments will be served. Cassell will have copies of his book “Creating Sarasota County” available for purchase.
Cassell has explored other historic aspects of Sarasota County.
He researched the life of Bertha Honoré Palmer, of Palmer Ranch fame, for his “Suncoast Empire: Bertha Honoré Palmer, Her Family, and the Rise of Sarasota, 1910-1982.”
Cassell also authored “Josie and Salem: An Indiana Love Story,” “Merchant Congressman in the Young Republic: Samuel Smith of Maryland 1752-1839,” and “The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee: A Historic Profile.”
Cassell and his wife, Beth, moved to Sarasota County in 2007. He had been a professor and served as president of the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg. In 2012, Pittsburgh University trustees named an academic building for Cassell on the Greensburg campus.
He now serves on Sarasota County Historical Commission, as chair of the History and Preservation Coalition of Sarasota County, and chair of the Sarasota County Centennial 2021 Steering Committee.
For more information about Cassell, visit frankcassell.com. For more information about the Lemon Bay Historical Society, call 305-504-7220 or visit lemonbayhistory.com. Email: [email protected]

Our Story

The Society grew out of a Pioneer Days Celebration on September 4, 1983 honoring Englewood’s first newspaper editor, Josephine Cortes, author of History of Englewood and Pioneer Days founder. In May, 1984 an organizational meeting was held, and by the next Pioneer Days celebration on September 2, 1984, the Society had organized a mullet roast for 150 people! The mullet was freshly caught by members of the Platt family and Bill Davis and Bob Cashatt foraged some swamp cabbage, which was cooked using Eula Davis’ (Bill’s mother) famous recipe. In 1985, the Lemon Bay Historical Society was officially incorporated as a non-profit organization whose mission was “for the specific purposes of perpetuating the legacy of the past [and] honoring the pioneer settlers of the Lemon Bay area.” Bob Cashatt, also an artist, designed the logo for the Society. We always welcome new members. Membership dues are $20 for a single membership, $35 for a family. Meetings are held on the last Tuesday of the month (generally) from September—April. You do not need to be a historian to join, just someone interested in preserving the history of this small town. If you’re interested in joining, download the following membership form and send it to us with your dues. We’ll welcome you!
