      Bay Voices was formed in 2007 after several members of the former Tampa Bay Gay Men’s Chorus got together and realized how much they had missed singing together. Since that time, the group has grown in popularity and renown and has performed concerts at venues including the Salvador Dali Museum, University of Tampa, International Plaza, the Sandpearl Resort and several local churches. This will be their fifth holiday concert at the Gulfport Public Library, performing Christmas and Chanukah favorites to ring in the season. Bay Voices are under the direction of Stephen L. Allen. For booking information, contact John Lulias (Lulias@aol.com). Find out more about the group at www.facebook.com/BayVoices.
       
      The event is sponsored by the LGBTQ Resource Center in conjunction with the Gulfport Public Library. The Resource Center provides collections, services and events throughout the year to the local LGBTQ community, its friends and family. Find out more about the Resource Center and the Library on the web at www.mygulfport.us/gpl or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/GulfportLibraryFL.  
      Body Movement & Being
      Wednesday, December 11th
       
      11:30 a.m.
       
      Scout Hall, 5315 28th Ave. S.
       
      How is this class unique? It reminds one of yoga, Pilates, Feldenkrais and maybe other practices and yet it is not. It does not focus on repetition of a set of exercises. The classes are built on a flow of movement with a main theme that develops and finds connections in the body that make sense for more efficient movement. Words do not do it justice; it has to be experienced within the body. Is it easy? Not really. Is it too hard? Absolutely not. 
       
      This class will focus on attention as we work, coupled with body awareness, allows us to find pathways for movement that re-balance our system. It is a study about our own patterns of movement which we can change to make more sense to the system. 
       
      Classes are slower than most classes, which allows us time to find the connection, pay attention and concentrate on the center and the core of the body. No mindless repetition, but a strong mind-body connection. 
       
      We allow movement to flow, progressing in a circular motion so as to follow the shape of the joints, utilizing breath, imagery and intention while we work. All that puts us on the pain toward attaining new levels of wellness.

      Join me in the search for wisdom, fulfillment and inner joy. We will make this happen through sound healing, gentle-meditative movements and inner smiles.

      “PRIDE” (2014) NEXT IN LGBTQ
      FILM SERIES
       
      Thursday, December 12th at 7 p.m.
       
      The LGBTQ Resource Center at Gulfport Public Library is proud to continue its monthly LGBTQ Film Series on Thursday, December 12 with PRIDE. 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 PRIDE (2014): This film is inspired by a true story. In 1984’s Thatcher-ruled Britain, a strike by the National Union of Mineworkers prompts a group of LGBT activists to raise money for the families of striking workers. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the LGBT group targets a small village in Wales where they decide to try and offer their donation in person. The strike drags on and the two groups find that standing together forms the strongest of all unions. “A joyous crowd-pleaser that genuinely works.” (Rotten Tomatoes) (Rated R)
       
      The LGBTQ Resource Center of the Gulfport Public Library is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The Resource Center provides collections, services and events throughout the year to the local LGBTQ community, its friends and family. Find out more about the Resource Center and the Library on the web at mygulfport.us/lgbtq-resources or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/GulfportLibraryFL. Or contact the LGBTQ Resource Center by email to LGBTQGulfport@gmail.com.

    • High Praise for Robert Creech and Hank Pomeranz of Southport Marina, NC AICW Statute Mile 309.5


      Our thanks to Looper David Heinsohn for these kind words, as posted on AGLCA’s Forum, for two stalwarts of Southport Marina, a longtime CRUISERS NET SPONSOR. This Cruisers Net editor has been profiting from the advice and wisdom of Robert and Hank for years!

      Mollie, with Chris and I stopped at Southport Marina, in Southport,
      NC this afternoon. What a wonderful and surprising stop.

      Robert Creech: We attended the Joe Wheeler Rendezvous, in October. I
      attended both of Robert’s Briefs. They were great. As a Harbor Host,
      before we started south, I asked him to make some suggestions for us on
      our passage as first timers, from Portsmouth, VA to Jacksonville. He
      offered up some good suggestions. We’ve not followed all of them, but
      they’ve certainly been valuable.
      The day before our arrival in Southport, I called to warn him we were
      expecting to be in town the next day. We talked about some problems we
      were having with the boat. As we were arriving on a Saturday, he offered
      to do a bit of boat part shopping for us. What a relief! Then I got to
      spend some quality time on his front porch swapping lies, err I mean Sea
      Stories, err that is chatting.
      If you’re coming through be sure to let him know you’re coming so he
      can at least say hi.

      Hank: The folks at the marina told us about a weather and route briefing
      that happens every night at the marina. The briefing is put on by Hank.
      Sorry I don’t have his last name, my bad. The brief is also sponsored by
      the Southport Marina, Carolina Yacht Care, and Zimmerman Marine. Robert
      also told us about it.
      For two hours Hank provided detailed information about the weather
      going south from here and known problem areas along the AICW. Included
      was a take home printout of all the slides so you don’t need to take
      notes. This was a very detailed brief, with lots of valuable
      information. That slide printout will be in the cockpit with us until we
      reach Savanna.
      A thank you to Hank and all of the sponsors for their work on this
      project.

      Bottom line, we’ll be stopping in Southport again on our northbound
      trip if at all possible. Might even spend a couple of days as it sounds
      like there’s some good food to be had nearby as well.

      David
      M/V Mollie

    • Present and Future Environmental Concerns for Southeast Coastal Waters as of 12/7/2019

      Future environmental concerns, such as coral collapse, lionfish, blue and green algae blooms, the impact of dredging, water levels in Lake Okeechobee and rising sea levels in general, all remain for our coastal waters after this past year of ecological and economic disasters of red tide and sargassum blooms in Florida.

        Any info on the east coast?

        • Cruisers' Net -  January 14, 2019 - 12:55 pm

          Patti – I think this report addresses thru title only, so E. Coast not as sever as Gulf. In fact we see very little on that side except around St Lucie area “maybe”
