Thursday, January 17, 2019

NEW YEAR – NEW THOUGHTS By Ed Bertha “Don’t look back or the future will pass you by.” – Ed Bertha It’s the New Year! Reflections, we all reflected on the past year — some with regret, others with happiness, or maybe with an appreciation for all we received. The New Year is also the time to look forward — perhaps longing for a fresh start or possibly fearful of what is to come. How will you deal with it?

Are The Lights Going Out On Florida’s Charm? By Ed Bertha “Not One Florida Official Can Claim To Be Surprised By This Year’s Algae Crisis” bullsugar.org As early as January South Florida Water Management District officials warned that suspended bottom sediments in Lake Okeechobee, stirred up by Hurricane Irma and winter cold fronts, had spiked nutrient levels in the lake’s surface waters. So the lake started the year with unusually abundant food for algae. The other factors needed for major blooms–sunlight and warmth–are inevitable in South Florida. But discharges are not inevitable. The US Army Corps of Engineers Lake Okeechobee […]

Happy Holiday Wishes to All! By Ed Bertha “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.

What’s Next? By Ed Bertha “Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything” George Bernard Shaw While we had a fun run with REAL’s flipping book format it’s off to something new and different with the next edition. As one can imagine the flipping book was not intuitive to a designer or the printer. What was right facing became left facing. Pages are literally upside down and so on. Just a bit of controlled confusion, yet fun! In the next issue look for something innovative and fresh. And no, we did not copy […]

To A New Year! By Ed Bertha & Kim Burns “Celebrate what you want to see more of” Tom Peters Once again we sit here and look back at another year passing us by. To some the New Year is a time to party, watch a few football games, and maybe make a few resolutions (Knowing deep down inside the resolutions won’t stick). It is all those things for us, but the New Year is also a time for reflection, a yardstick for measuring what I’ve learned so far, not just in the last year but all along the winding […]
