Healthcare is a front page story item, and probably will be for a long time. Whether we’re talking about the implications of the health care reform tax credit, or coverage options, health care will be a hot topic for the foreseeable future.  […]

…or maybe I should say “mule”. Try all you will to change someone’s thoughts or beliefs, and you fail almost every time. Why is that? Maybe some folks just don’t get it….

Well, I think it’s Boy Scout Island…seems there is some confusion as to what spoil island is actually Boy Scout. I thought I would go with that title instead of “A Kayak Trip to the northernmost island south of the Stuart causeway”. It just doesn’t flow well….

I love to fish, it’s a serious distraction to me. And while I try to learn as much as possible, I’ve grown to understand that they call it “fishing” rather than “catching” for a reason.
