Friday Meanderings

Not so many meanderings today, I actually have news!

Terry and I went into the Homosassa Library to check out the 90% plans for the Yulee Drive Sidewalk in Old Homosassa.  I’ve been on my soapbox about the sidewalks for a few months.  Writing commissioners and other county officials and alerting friends, neighbors and anyone else I could get to listen! 

Happy to see that all that noise I made might have paid off!

The sidewalk goes around ALL of the trees that had previously been marked to be removed. I plan to send a BIG Thank You to all the people I’ve been bugging at the county offices.  Also want to say thanks to everyone out there that also called and emailed our officials!

You remember those old movies where the spy would surreptitiously take pictures of the secret plans with her tiny camera?  Well, I didn’t even have to hide my camera and these photos didn’t turn out all that great.  Do not think I’d make a very good spy!

The most important thing on all these photos is that there are little bumps where the sidewalk goes around the trees.  These pics start at the exisiting sidewalk and go just past Anchorage Street.

 The library also has a copy of the old plans on display so we were able to compare the old with the new.

I’ve highlighted so you can see the difference. The top plan is the new one. The bottom plan had the tree removal.

If you are interested in seeing the plans a little more clearly, I would highly recommend stopping in at the library.  The plans will be there until next Friday, the 22nd.

What else is going on?

There’s an All Hazards and Hurricane Expo at the Crystal River Mall on Saturday.  It’s almost Hurricane Season!

Monday is the Acoustic Meetup at the Coastal Regions Library in Crystal River.  From 2 – 4:30.  Open to anyone that plays an acoustic instrument or just wants to sing.  We also welcome listeners.

On May 25th, Memorial Day, there will be a special service at the Old Homosassa Veterans Memorial at 2:00.  Parking is available at the elementary school.

The annual Big Fish Cobia tournament is on June 6th and 7th which is right around the corner.  The Old Homosassa Heritage Council will have a booth there.  If you don’t yet have your beautiful high quality t-shirt yet, they’ll be available.  They are really popular and we’ve already sold a bunch.  DeeDee Wilcox, co-chair of the organization just made her third bulk order! You can also buy them at Watson’s Art Gallery in Old Homosassa and River Haven Marina on the other side of the river.

Scalloping season this year is June 27 through September 24.  Are we ready for that?

Have a great weekend!
