The Sea Turtle Preservation Society reminds all coastal Florida residents to go "lights out" for sea turtles from May 1 to Oct. 31. Now is the time for all business and property owners to make sure no artificial light sources can be visible from or illuminate the beach at night.
Artificial lights can discourage female turtles from nesting on the beach and can cause hatchlings to become disoriented.
If kitchen gadgets and fuzzy slippers just won't do for Mother's Day this year, Save the Manatee Club recommends a more memorable gift: a manatee gift adoptions!
A tax-deductble gift adoption from Save the Manatee costs $25 and includes an adoption certificate, full-color photo and a biography of a real, endangered Florida manatee. If you adopt at the $35 level, you'll also get a free ceramic manatee heart ornament.

Jazz Guitarist Tom Hueston will be a special guest on A Taste of Jazz this Monday, April 28, 2014. Tom is a teacher and very special performer. He was Matt Heister's first guitar teacher and also helped launch the career of Jeff McLaughlin.
Tom is one of only a handful of people in the world who can play bass pedals as the same time he plays guitar! This blend of two instruments in this way will bring a unique sound to his performance. We will talk about his teaching techniques, the physics of playing two instruments at the same time, one with his hands and the other with his feet, and listen to some tracks he has recorded with other local musicians.
Join Dave Fries this Monday following All Things Considered for an evening of the very best in jazz and a fun filled as well as informative set by Tom Hueston.
