SRQ DAILY MONDAY BUSINESS EDITION MONDAY APR 5, 2021

The winning entry in the month-long naming contest for the new environmental turtle sculpture at Venice Beach is “Speckles.”  Submitted by 12-year-old Val Kappelmann, the name was one of more than 250 proposed to Gulf Coast Community Foundation for the larger-than-life sea turtle that greets beachgoers and educates them about the value of recycling. A sign will be installed nearby to identify the turtle by its new moniker, and Gulf Coast will make a grant in Val’s honor to the environmental organization of her choice—Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium.
