Is it a Job or is it a Career?

Tennis

READ MY TIPS Doug Browne dbrowne912@aol.com Color me delusional but I always approached each new opportunity as a part of my extensive career as tennis professional. As my mentor, Jak Beardsworth, once coined, “It seemed like a good idea at the time,” he said with a wry smile. Indisputably, my early ascent to running my own tennis program was an integral aspect of my joy in choosing my path in life. Similar to my playing career, I was lucky to taste success early, and that offered motivation to keep climbing, pursuing my dreams. My hometown club hosted the United States Clay ... Read More »

By Richard Alan harborgoldsmith@comcast.net For many island businesses, the month of April is usually when things begin to wind down a little. It can still be busy but not as crazy as the prior months and many call it “a good busy”.

“ONE WORLD ONE HOPE” What is Your Definition of Relay?

Untitled-1

By Maureen Chodaba What does the word “relay” mean to you? The dictionary defines relay as “the act of passing something along from one person or group to another, as in passing a baton in a race” or “an electrical device designed to permit current flowing through in one circuit can switch on and off a current in a second circuit”. These are both adequate definitions, but there is another meaning of the word when it is used as the Relay For Life.

DiamondTennisBracelet

ALL THAT GLITTERS Richard Alan harborgoldsmith@comcast.net Season on Marco Island is in full swing, and I survived another Valentine’s Day rush that required my son and me only a couple of nights burning the midnight oil in the work shop. It was the smoothest, hassle free and profitable Valentine week I can ever remember!

I mentioned that I had seen the Endless Jewelry line while in Europe last summer. It ... Read More »

By Carl and Joan Kelly Africa. Say the word. The mind begins to spin the images. Vast open expanses of grasslands covered by seemingly endless herds of wildebeest, impala, gazelle, zebra. Sleek, efficient predators, lion, cheetah. And elephants, majestic elephants. The culture and people, Zulu, Bushman. Africa. Now say safari. The mind reels with excitement and danger. That is how we approached our trip to South Africa last fall. It is what we expected. And South Africa did not disappoint. We began on safari.

Conversational Drifts

B11-CBN-1-23-15-2

Artful Life Tara O’Neill taraogallery@marcocable.com Some of my favorite conversations — whether I’m actively involved or just eavesdropping — consist of one bright topic setting off a circuit of others. There are times when linear conversations — those that start with one topic and finish with it before moving to another — have their proper place, but it’s exhilarating to listen as creative ideas spark like electric arcs from one to another freeform. A recent article by David Pitt of the Associated Press on the spate of piano store closings around the country has ignited an impressive nationwide debate as to ... Read More »
