Iditarod dream comes true for 10-year-old

  #

GRANTED: Wasilla boy with cystic fibrosis rides out a wish with Brooks.

Jacob Smith, a bright-eyed 10-year-old who was born with cystic fibrosis, could have traveled anywhere in the United States.

How about a trip to Seattle to watch a professional baseball game, or Valdez to fish for mammoth halibut?

How about a limousine ride around Anchorage, or a roller-coaster ride at Disneyland in southern California?

"No way," said the Wasilla fifth grader. His ultimate adventure: riding in the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.   more...

The Passing of a Legend

  #

Violet Redington

by Jo Wood

If it is true that behind every great man stands an even greater woman, Violet Elizabeth Redington was living proof. From her birth on July 17, 1924 in Kintnersville, PA to her passing of cancer on March 4, 2006, Vi led a life of which most others could only dream.

In 1948, with her husband, Ray Redington., his brother, Joe and his family, and his father James Wesley Redington, this self-described “little Pennsylvania girl” hit the road to Alaska with no other goal than to have a life of adventure.   more...

Paddlers ready for season

  #
By Heather LaRoi
Post-Crescent staff writer

Odd as it might seem, the first thing many novice kayakers are taught to do is not how to get into the boat, but how to get out of the boat.

“The first class, the first day, the first thing you learn to do is the wet exit,” said Bill Merrick, president of the North East Wisconsin Paddlers club. “We teach that until you’re blue in the face.”

Not literally blue, of course, which is exactly what a lot of beginning kayakers might fear at the prospect of flipping upside-down in the water.   more...

City takes first step to water meters for all

  #
By Gary Washburn
Tribune staff reporter

Thousands of Chicago homeowners happily watered their lawns without giving it a second thought during the bone-dry months of last summer even as the yards of their suburban brethren turned brown.

But the handle on the free-flowing spigot is about to tighten.

The Daley administration plans to purchase an automated meter-reading system that officials said Thursday is a first step toward installing water meters citywide to reduce waste.   more...

Tribe wants to restore sturgeon to Lake Michigan

  #

By PATRICK SULLIVAN
Record-Eagle staff writer     

MANISTEE - Members of the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians hope to restock Lake Michigan with a prehistoric fish known for its large size and a back covered with rows of bony plates.
      The sturgeon is considered historically important to the tribe and was once a major food source, said Glenn Zaring, tribe spokesman.
      "Because of the way the sturgeon have been depleted over the years, we have taken this on as a cultural project, as well as a science project," Zaring said.   more...

Boat-safety classes to become law

  #

By Ed Culhane
Gannett Wisconsin Newspapers

The days when any 16-year-olds, trained or not, could jump in powerboats, fire up the motors and cast their fate to the waves are coming to an end.

Under a bill headed for the desk of Gov. Jim Doyle, anyone who turns 16 this year or hereafter will be required to take and pass a state-sanctioned boating safety class before he or she can operate a powerboat on Wisconsin waters. A spokeswoman for the governor said Doyle will sign the bill into law.   more...

Invasive species at the Shedd Aquarium

Big, public aquariums spend a lot of money to make fish look like they’re at home in the wild, but lately some aquariums are showing fish that are out of place. The GLRC's Shawn Allee looks at one aquarium’s effort to give them the spotlight, too:

The federal government’s spending millions to keep Asian Carp out of the Great Lakes. Biologists worry Asian Carp could devastate the lakes’ ecosystem. Recently, though, several carp were brought within sight of the Great Lakes, and biologists are happy about it.   more...

Can a Middle-Aged Woman Learn to Sail?

  #

By Liz Powell

The nest is finally empty and I’m wondering what’s next? We’re in between our own kids and grandkids—that happy time of life when the aches and pains are still few, the disposable cash is a little more than ever before, and time just for each other has finally reappeared in our schedules. The question looming large and on the horizon now is: Whatever shall we do with ourselves?  The late night scene and raucous parties just don’t hold the same appeal—the ‘been there, done that’ column includes community work, flying lessons, golf, photography, and on and on and on.  But, true to the nature of the male species, my darling husband has yet another idea: “Let’s go sailing!”    more...

Off-Season Boat Projects

  #

by Tom Wood

While your boat lies sleeping under a blanket of snow and you long for the new season to start, you could be getting ahead on boat maintenance projects at home and saving yourself from that withdrawal feeling that grows exponentially in relation to the number of days away from the water. So when the season finally gets underway again, you'll have less pressure with fewer jobs to get done. Best of all, you'll be able to get back out on the water under sail faster than ever before. Here are a number of projects that I recommend doing at home over the long winter months—so let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.   more...

THE FLINT JOURNAL
By Todd Seibt

For many a Michiganian, a place on the water is a lifelong dream - but paying for it can be a financial nightmare.

Quin Bartlett of Flushing Township, a lifelong boater, has a fresh answer to that old problem: the Aqua Lodge.

It's a cottage built on a catamaran, designed to be mobile on the water or land.  more...
