Determining Contact Point

B13-CBN-5-1-14

ByTodd Elliott telliott@hideawaybeachclub.org   The secret to better golf is making solid contact with the golf ball. Off-center hits affect the flight of the golf ball, distance, accuracy, and more specifically, launch, spin, trajectory, and spin axis. Spin axis determines which way and how much the golf ball turns after initial launch. As an instructor I first look at ball flight before evaluating the student’s golf swing. Then I will try to change any swing patterns that may be causing the undesired ball flight, and unwanted misses. Before making any changes to the ball flight I determine where the student ...

Get Ready to Scream

B11-CBN-5-1-1

By Doug Browne dbrowne912@aol.com At the risk of sounding too fuddy-duddy, I may not be ready to endorse the new Big-12 Conference tennis rule which supports, screaming, yelling, shrieking during play. Yes, it is okay to yell at the opponent when he is about to strike his serve or when he is gearing up to rip a big groundstroke. Anything goes on the tennis courts during Big 12 Conference play. Why is collegiate tennis making such a dramatic — and seemingly desperate — change? In order to understand this new rule, we need to examine the big picture. For years, ... Read More »

Spring Ring Bling Fling

B7-CBN-5-1-7

By Richard Alan harborgoldsmith@comcast.net April was here and gone, it’s time to spring clean, clear-out and check your fine jewelry. Periodic cleaning and inspection is the surest way to prevent diamond or gemstone loss from faulty or missing prongs in settings. It seems this past season many have heeded my advice and many have not. I replaced a record amount of “missing” diamonds these past months, all of which losses could have been prevented by a simple inspection. A prong in time saves nine grand. My simple cleaning and inspection, which by the way is a free service takes three ... Read More »

The Southern Cross

B5-CBN-5-1-11

By Mike P. Usher usher34105@earthlink.net We are going to change our viewing time from our usual 9PM to 11PM until October. There are two reasons for this: 1) The longer days of summer mean it is not fully dark at 9PM, and 2) the rapidly approaching rainy season means early evening clouds blot out the stars. By 11PM there is at least a chance of clearing, although it’s not usually totally clear until after midnight. Did you think you would have to travel to Argentina to see the Southern Cross? Not so! Theoretically, you can see the whole cross (official ... Read More »

Farmer’s Market Packs Up Until Next Season

The gang from Clay Guild, Writer’s Guild, Angela’s Gourmet Pasta, Katherine’s Bead Designs and Cardzbynikki bid adieu.

By Steve Gimmestad steve@coastalbreezenews.com (Insert heavy sigh here) Well, another season of the farmer’s market is in the books. April 22nd was the final takedown and many hugs and, yes, even a tear or two on the last day. Let’s hope the summer goes quickly cause there are many people that will be missed. “Many of these vendors don’t have a store,” said Amanda Kuck, a farmer’s market regular. “The only place I can get some of this great stuff is right here. You’d think I’d be used to it by now, but it’s still kinda hard when they’re gone.” ... Read More »

Re: The Marco Island proposed Rental Ordinance Reconsideration Apples, Oranges, Lions and Tigers and Bears. What do they have in common? Everything, according to a few Marco Island City Councilors that are proposing to once again reconsider Condominiums in the proposed rental ordinance. Single family detached homes and Multi unit Condominiums. These are two different animals! 1) Condominiums have rules and regulations that effectively address, renter, guest and owner problems coupled with strong management that actively enforces those rules. Single family homes have no such requirement. 2) Condominiums have legal obligations to have annual fire inspections. Single family homes do ... Read More »

Naomi’s April Woes

B12-CBN-4-17-15-8

By Naomi & Karina Paape chestergun@comcast.net Dear Fellow Felines: Spring has pounced, we’re still in the paw-grip of kitten season, and sherpas packing fleas are pitching tents in our warm and radiant fur coats. Now let’s talk bikini season. Most felines, such as ourselves, eat way too many carbohydrates in the form of dry food. I don’t care how much your staff (as you may recall only dogs have owners; we felines have staff) pays for a bag of the good stuff, even if it’s $175 for an eight -pound bag. Cats don’t need to carbo-load like amateur athletes in ... Read More »

Can You Really Boost Your Metabolism?

B11-CBN-4-17-15-19

By Crystal Manjarres Crystal@PinkIslandFitness.com I’m sure you’ve read the claims splashed across fitness magazines and various canisters of green tea: “fire up your metabolism” reads Herbalife’s Ultimate Thermofit or “naturally boosts metabolism – no jitters” reads Garden of Life’s fucoThin Green supplement. Sounds legit, right? Sadly it’s not. The scary truth is that these supplement companies need no evidence whatsoever that what they claim is actually true. It’s frustrating for the consumer who wastes their hard-earned cash on flimsy statements, which further demonstrates the rule of thumb that if something sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. ...

Time to Review Your Condo Insurance Policies?

B9-CBN-4-17-15-14

By Gary & Sandy Elliott www.marcoislandcondoguy.net www.SandyElliottInteriors.com Now is a good time to review your condo (HO6), wind and flood insurance with a knowledgeable and reputable local agent familiar with the Florida condo market. HO6 policies provide liability protection, medical payments, and cover losses due to water, hurricane, lightning and condo association loss assessments up to certain limits with defined deductibles.

It’s All Good

B8-CBN-4-17-15-8

By Tara O’Neill taraogallery@marcocable.com   Painting outside can be an unparalleled pleasure for an artist, but it can also present some unexpected challenges. I usually enjoy besting the forces that endanger my mission – though sometimes I’m not so successful. It seems when the troubles are nature-made, I am usually prepared and able to rise above…but when they’re man-made, well, sometimes the buckle just breaks and patience snaps. In my plein aire experiences I’ve dealt with the surprise of sprinklers, swarms of mosquitoes, the rise of fierce winds and the fall of rain. I’ve been nipped by dogs and ‘saluted’ ... Read More »

Springtime Brings Close Encounters of Manatees, Boaters

A30-CBN-4-17-14

Submitted As springtime arrives, chances increase that manatees and boaters will have close encounters. Boaters can enjoy opportunities to observe one of Florida’s unique species but to avoid colliding with manatees, people on the water should take basic steps such as slowing down, watching out for the animals and complying with regulations in manatee zones. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) law enforcement officers will be on patrol in state waters to remind boaters of the seasonal manatee speed zones that go into effect in April. They will be taking enforcement actions when necessary. “Our officers do their very best ... Read More »

To: City Council, City Manager, City Attorney and City Clerk for City of Marco Island This letter is to state our opposition to the new Rental Ordinance or at a minimum our opposition to include condominiums.  We are opposed to reopening and reconsidering the ordinance which recently passed. We have owned a condo on Marco Island for 11 years and have never had any issues in which this new ordinance proposes to solve. We are opposed because: There are no problems reported at the Gulfview. Problems should be analyzed before sweeping all condominiums into an ordinance proposed to solve a problem in single ...

Give Florida’s beach-nesting shorebirds space to help them survive

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) asks beachgoers to watch out for and avoid disturbing beach-nesting shorebirds on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the state. Shorebirds build nests out of sand and shells on Florida beaches in spring and summer, hatching chicks that are difficult to see. Shorebird nests, eggs and chicks are well camouflaged and can be easily missed and even stepped on unless people know to look out for them. The snowy plover, least tern, black skimmer, American oystercatcher and Wilson’s plover are several of Florida’s beach-nesting shorebird species that face conservation challenges and need ...

To Your Health Scott Lowe CEO, Physicians Regional-Collier Blvd On Monday, March 30, our nation, once again, celebrated National Doctors’ Day. At Physicians Regional Healthcare System, we know the extraordinary role our local physicians play in our community. We witness their profound impact on a daily basis.
