    • Advice to Transients on Dredging at Coquina Harbor, off SC AICW Statute Mile 346


      Myrtle Beach Yacht Club is unmatched for its Lowcountry charm and gracious hospitality.

      A CRUISERS NET SPONSOR, Myrtle Beach Yacht Club occupies the northerly banks of Coquina Harbor; Coquina Harbor itself cuts into the northern banks of the Waterway, opposite marker #13. Our thanks to Roger Long for this information and advice referring to the upcoming dredging in Coquina Harbor scheduled to begin April 1.

      I had a nice conversation with the Project Manager since we promised MBYC that we would return from New York and move our boat if necessary. Permitting is not yet complete. Earliest work could begin is two weeks but paperwork could delay that. Dredging will begin at the channel entrance and work back. Slips and marina fairways will be done after the channel is finished so not for a couple weeks after work begins. Don’t avoid inquiring about transient slips in this harbor because of this news item. It could be as much as a couple months before there is any significant disruption.

      “WE THE ANIMALS” NEXT IN LGBTQ FILM SERIES
      Thursday, April 11th
       
      The LGBTQ Resource Center at Gulfport Public Library is proud to continue its monthly LGBTQ Film Series on Thursday, April 11 with WETHE ANIMALS, an independent drama about three brothers growing up in a troubled family. The Film Series is a free gathering to watch a film in the company of friends and neighbors on the second Thursday of each month. 
       
      Popcorn, candy, bottled water and soda are available. Donations will be accepted to benefit the LGBTQ Resource Center. Feel free to bring your own “brown bag” supper and beverages. Each film begins at 7pm in the Friends Room at Gulfport Public Library (5501 28th Avenue South). Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
       
      About WE THE ANIMALS (2018): Manny, Joel, and Jonah tear their way through childhood. Their parents have a volatile relationship that makes and unmakes the family over and over, often leaving the boys fending for themselves. As their parents rip at one another, Manny and Joel harden and grow into versions of their father. With the brothers fractured, Jonah, the youngest, becomes increasingly aware of his desperate need to escape. Driven to the edge, Jonah embraces an imagined world all his own. Directed by Jeremiah Zagar. “Artful and frank, a rare combination.” (San Diego Reader). (Rated R. Includes sexual content and strong language. Adults only.)
       
      Save the date for our next film, Thursday May 9, DO I SOUND GAY? (2015): Director David Thorpe embarks on a hilarious and touching journey of self-discovery, confronting his anxiety about “sounding gay.” Enlisting acting coaches, linguists, friends, family, total strangers, and celebrities, he quickly learns that many people – both gay and straight – often wish for a different voice. In this feature-length documentary, what starts as a personal journey becomes a chance to unpack layers of cultural baggage concerning sexuality, identity, and self-esteem. Featuring appearances by Margaret Cho, Tim Gunn and George Takei. “Surprisingly entertaining, highly informative and honest.” (Newsweek) (Not Rated)
       
      Also save the date for our film on June 13, STONEWALL UPRISING. Watch for announcements of other films as they are added to the series on the second Thursday of each month.

      Call for Applicants for its 2019/2020 Community Support Grant Program
       
      The Gulfport Merchant’s Chamber (GMC) has announced a call for applicants for its 2019/2020 community support grant program. Local non-profit organizations that target or include Gulfport in their activities are invited to apply. Applicants must be certified tax-exempt non-profit organizations, government entities requesting funds for public purposes, or schools and colleges at any level.
       
      For more details and to apply, see the application available atwww.VisitGulfportFlorida.comClick on “Community Grant” at the bottom of the home page. Submission of an application does not guarantee funding and the Board of the GMC reserves the right to determine or adjust the amount awarded to any recipient. Applications must be received in writing and must be emailed, postmarked or delivered no later than March 31, 2019. Applications received after the deadline cannot be considered. Decisions on recipients are scheduled to be announced by April 27. 
       
      Special consideration will be given to organizations that are able to help promote and provide volunteers for the GMC events that raise the funds making these grants possible. “Gecko World” events with funds earmarked each year for community giving include “Gecko Crawl,” “Gecko Ball” and the GeckoFest street festival. The events grow in size and popularity every year and each requires a large promotional effort and a large number of volunteers. Grant amounts will be determined and funds distributed to grantees after these GMC events have concluded for 2019.
       
      Since sponsoring the community grants, the GMC has provided many thousands of dollars in funding to a large and growing roster of worthy non-profit organizations. The GMC also gives back to the community in other ways during the year, including sponsoring “Gulfport’s Get Rescued” each February, benefitting animal rescue groups. A monthly Clothing Swap benefitting CASA is held during the Gulfport Tuesday Fresh Market; and the GMC’s “Holiday Hoopla” helps collect donations for Operation Santa in December. Public art installations have also been commissioned and installed with GMC funding.

      2020 Census: How to Get Involved
       
      The 2020 Census provides an opportunity for everyone to be counted. Tribal, state, and local governments; community based organizations; faith-based groups; schools; businesses; the media; and others play a key role in developing partners to educate and motivate residents to participate in the 2020 Census.
       
      When community members are informed, they are more likely to respond to the census. Through collaborative partnerships, the U.S. Census Bureau and community leaders can reach the shared goal of counting EVERYONE in 2020.
       
      The Complete Count Committees (CCC) program is key to creating awareness in communities all across the country.
       
      • CCCs utilize local knowledge, influence, and resources to educate communities and promote the census through locally 
      • based, targeted outreach efforts. 
      • CCCs provide a vehicle for coordinating and nurturing cooperative efforts between tribal, state, and local governments; communities; and the Census Bureau. 
      • CCCs help the Census Bureau get a complete count in 2020 through partnerships with local governments and community organizations.
       
      WHO?
      Tribal, state, and local governments work together with partners to form CCCs to promote and encourage response to the 2020 Census in their communities. Community-based organizations also establish CCCs that reach out to their constituents.
       
      WHAT?
      A CCC is comprised of a broad spectrum of government and community leaders from education, business, healthcare, and other community organizations. These trusted voices develop and implement a 2020 Census awareness campaign based upon their knowledge of the local community to encourage a response.
       
      WHEN?
      The formation of CCCs is happening NOW! Leaders are identifying budget resources and establishing local work plans. In 2020, they will implement the plans and lead their communities to a successful census count.
       
      HOW?
      It’s up to all of us! CCCs know the best way to reach the community and raise awareness. Some activities could include:
       
      • Holding CCC kickoff meetings with media briefings.
      • Participating in Census rallies or parades.
      • Coordinating Census unity youth forums.
      • Hosting Interfaith breakfasts and weekend events.
      • Encouraging the use of Statistics in Schools classroom resources.
      • Incorporating census information in newsletters, social media posts, podcasts, mailings, and websites.
      • Helping recruit census workers when jobs become available.
       
      WHY?
      The primary goal of the 2020 Census is to count everyone once, only once, and in the right place. Community influencers create localized messaging that resonates with the population in their area. They are trusted voices and are best suited to mobilize community resources in an efficient manner.
