John C. "Johnny" Jones, August 20, 1932 - July 11, 2010 tinyurl.com "Florida has lost a beloved son and unfaltering environmental leader. . . . Because of his resolute actions, the Kissimmee River and the Everglades restoration efforts are closer to reality while generations to come will enjoy countless acres of wild places because he cared." - Gov. Charlie Crist, July 15, 2010 Credo For Leaders Teddy Roosevelt said it first: "It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again -- who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and who spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best knows, in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." (This is from the backside of a business card: John C. Jones, Executive Director, Florida Wildlife Federation. Wayne Nelson has carried this tattered paper for 40 years since they first met. Upon Wayne's request this was read aloud at the funeral service for Johny.)

But a controversial multi-million dollar plan to reclaim and restore the area's delicate ecosystem is coming under attack, amid charges that it will actually harm the environment, while enriching land owners. Al Jazeera's Rob Reynolds reports. (Mar 15, 2010)

Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Oasis of the Seas arrives into Port Everglades in Ft Lauderdale, Florida. The weather was PERFECT!!! Oasis of the Seas is now the largest cruise ship in the world. Watch and listen to the excitement as the Oasis enters her home Port for the first time. Filmed from the location of the "World Famous" MortgageMobile.com Webcam. www.MortgageMobile.com Don't miss our exclusive photos from this incredible event at http Watch our site for the arrival of the Allure of the Seas in November 2010!
Oasis of the Seas is a cruise ship in the fleet of Royal Caribbean International. The first of her class, she is expected to be joined by her sister ship Allure of the Seas in November 2010. Both vessels are expected to cruise the Caribbean from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in the United States. The ship replaces the Freedom-class cruise ships (also owned by Royal Caribbean) as the world's largest passenger vessel. The vessel was ordered in February 2006 and designed under the name "Project Genesis". Her keel was laid down on 12 November 2007 at STX Europe (formerly Aker Yards) in Turku, Finland. The company announced that full funding for Oasis of the Seas was secured on 15 April 2009. The name Oasis of the Seas resulted from a competition held in May 2008. The ship was completed and turned over to Royal Caribbean on 28 October 2009. Two days later, she departed Finland for the United States. While exiting the Baltic Sea, the vessel passed underneath the Great Belt Fixed Link in Denmark on 1 November 2009. The bridge has a clearance of 65 m (213 ft) above the water; Oasis normally has an air draft of 72 m (236 ft). The passage under the bridge was possible due to retraction of the telescoping funnels, and an additional 30 cm (12 in) was gained by the squat effect whereby vessels travelling at speed in a shallow channel will be drawn deeper into the water. Approaching the bridge at 20 knots (37 km/h; 23 mph), the ship passed under it with less than 2 feet (60 cm) of ...

These are excerpts of an original film produced by businessman and adventurer Homer Augustus Brinkley in 1928 to illustrate the exotic environment found in the Everglades. Brinkley lived among the Seminole Indians for a few months. He later used the film in a traveling show that included a live caged bear and himself dressed as a Seminole Indian. Photographed by William B. Feeland, the film contains some of the earliest moving footage of Seminole Indians. First, Seminole men and women are shown playing the "ball game" with handmade sticks in an open field in the Everglades. After the game, a close-up of the winners of the game is shown, as well as a closer view of the sticks used in the game. Next, Seminole men, women, and children perform a circular group dance around a fire. "The Buffalo Dance" is one of four Seminole dances included in the entire Brinkley film. A Seminole man poles a dugout canoe with a woman and two children along a waterway in the Everglades. Then in a segment titled "returning from the hunt," the man, woman, and children are seen returning to camp after a hunting trip, and the man is carrying the game they killed. A black bear cub is shown climbing a cabbage palm, as well as landscape scenes of the grasslands and forests of the Everglades. In the last segment, titled "a grove of wild oranges amidst moss-draped oaks," the dense trees of an Everglades hammock are shown, including wild orange trees.

It was specifically designed to be compact enough to fit into the small luggage compartment of a VW "beetle" car, a particular Rory favorite.

One a recent fishing trip in April 2009, we fished out of Florida Bay with guide Eric Herstedt (www.tarpononfly.com) and while fishing for sharks in the mangroves ended up hooking a massive sawfish. Pautzke Bait Company's owner, Casey Kelley, fought the fish for 45 minutes prior to seeing it at all. Then, the sawfish rose to the surface and unfortunately because of it's endangered status, Capt Eric had Casey get the fish as close to the boat as possible and cut the line as close to the saw as possible. The fish was released unharmed. What a great experience!
