Leaving turtle nesting grounds on Vero Beach. Headed back to the CCC in Winter Haven. Catch U all on the flip side.

FACT OF THE DAY: 90% of all endangered Sea Turtles (5 kinds) nest in Florida.

CGNC...90%of Sea Turtles can't be wrong, FLORIDA is where it is at! LOL

TJL...Wellington is very nice. We went through there a few months back and did some scotuing around as a potential future place to live.

### In one of the most notable claims in last week's Yahoo story alleging more UM recruiting violations, Yahoo writer Charles Robinson quoted an unidentified former Canes staffer as saying Sean Allen arranged for Olivier Vernon and Anthony Chickillo to gain entrance to a strip club in Coral Gables Jan. 22, 2011 on Chickillo’s recruiting visit, and that Allen paid for drinks and entertainment that night.
Vernon on Friday vehemently denied that he went to a strip club with Chickillo and said he would be willing to say that under oath. He said Allen “wasn’t with us” and paid for nothing that night.

“It’s not true,” Vernon said, repeating it twice. "We took him out for bowling in Sunset Place. Al Golden and all the coaches stress not to take [recruits] to strip clubs.”

Yahoo cited phone records showing 12 calls between Vernon and Allen that night, but without proof of where they were or whether Allen paid for anything. The question is whether Robinson's anonymous "former UM staffer" has an ax to grind against the program.

Hassan,

I pray for your comfort. I pray your father knows Jesus and is washed in his blood of salvation. I pray for his forgiveness. I pray for his mercy. I pray for his love and the promise of the Gospel to surround your father and family. To bring you comfort and a peace that goes beyond all understanding.
May God bless you, Comfort You and welcome your father by saying it is well, my true and faithful servant.

I am sure he is very proud of you!

We are!

I pray:that you will mount up with wings as eagles,that you shall run and not be weary,and that you walk and not faint.
TRUST man-never give up,never give up!

LOL, I love my city, but we have to be the only school in America, whose HC stresses NOT to take an under-age kid to a strip club...IJS!

Posted by: Canezitis | July 29, 2012 at 12:44 PM

Canezitis,
I live in Englewood, about 45mins. South of Sarasota on the Coast.
If you enjoy golf... you'll enjoy Sarasota... LOTS of golfing & golf courses. Also lots of boating and fishing. The area is still growing... mostly in an eastern direction, (east of I-75.) Lakewood Ranch is an up and coming community out there.
WARNING: The median age group in Sarasota is probably about 70. I'm about to turn 58 and I feel like a youngster around here most of the time.
Having said that, there are also young families around, and plenty of good schools. (Sarasota & Charlotte County schools are always some of the highest scoring Districts in the State.)
Lots of good restaurants... Siesta Key beach has been rated as having the best sand in the world. (If you like beaches.)
If you're just visiting, Mote Marine Lab is a nice half-day attraction. St. Armands Circle is a nice upscale outdoor shopping area.
Ringling Art museum is nice... Overall, it's fairly "touristy" over here.
The biggest draw to me, (having grown up in Miami), is just the slower pace over here. Not as crowded and crazy as the east coast.
It's different though, (in terms of the number of "cultural" choices especially), and I would recommend scouting it out for a weekend AT LEAST though, (unless you already have a job lined up here and are for sure moving in.) With the construction business so "down" right now... there are not many jobs around... no real "industry" per say.
Anyway... it USED to be REAL SEASONAL with snowbirds coming in for the winter and leaving after Easter like clockwork... now, not so much... way more year-round residents.
For the 33 years I've been over here, I've not regretted the move. (Felt more comfortable raising a family over here versus the east coast.)
Hope this helps a little, & Good luck!

Hassan, prayers out and up for your father.

Good Sarasota overview Roach. I'd second everything you said. There's also a pretty good cultural scene in terms of dance, theater (FSU "cough" theater puts on some decent plays), classical music. Hip. Sarasota ain't. Think of it as a Midwestern Boca Raton with an average age 20 years higher

Sling-got many friends in Lox-was going to buy there 10 years ago but saw too many pickups with rebel flags!

Here's a start

Go to Cousins Restaurant in Charlotte Amelia, St. Thomas for local food which can be very good. Warning: do not drink Mobi, it tastes like cough syrup. Do not order mannish water unless you're feeling particularly macho: that's goat head soup.

The diary over next to the golf course makes some killer milk shakes.

The ferry to St. John is worth it, particularly the ride back at night.

Posted by: Old Skool | July 23, 2012 at 11:48 AM

Old Skool-went there today-awesome food!! will take the car ferry over to St John's tomorrow-thank U

Old Skool

Glad you liked it. Be aware the established underwater snorkeling trail in the National Park on St. John is so-so at best and can get crowded. I'd explore the island, find my own beach and enjoy.

Here's a wacky/unique/romantic idea that if you have the time and negotiating skills (and are with female company), I might try.
At the end of Hassel Island (which sits on the right of the bay Charlotte Amalia is located on) there an old cannon embankment. Find out what day will be most crowded with cruise ships. Get a picnic dinner and some of your favorite beverage, hire a water taxi/boatman to drop you off very late in the afternoon (and pick you up a couple of hours later). You'll have a private view of the parade of lighted cruise ships as they pass by and chug out to sea. Any of the local retailers or taxi drivers will know the schedules of the various cruise ships.

Solar and Skool...found dome GREAT kayaking places over on the Indian River and Vero each area. Lots of kayaking trails, mangrove islands, backwater fishing and sea turtle nesting grounds.

Smells like a Canespace WYPT III?

86Cane

Sebas13...here U go:

http://www.miamialumni.net/swflorida

Game watch parties to be announced soon and ALL Canes fans are welcome U do NOT have to be a UMAA member.

The director of the UMAA club there is the former best friend of "The Truth" from back in the day on the blog.

Canezitis

Thanks roach for all the info. I live near palm springs, so we're trying get away from the 70 something age group. We're in our early 30's and feel like we're in our 50's out here. And golf courses we have, but I'm not golfing in 110-120 degree heat:) . We're gonna keep our options open I think until something great comes along that gets us away from 5 mo of 100+ heat and around a younger community.

The Dude

OhioCane,
do you know when our next target is announcing?

I seriously cant take anymore of this insomnia, something has to give.

The Dude

Hassan, my wishes for you and your family. In reference to the Sean Taylor link, I kmow I can always close my eyes and watch him running in the rain.

The Dude

That Sean Taylor video also makes me think what in the hell happened to us?

Canezitis

Comparisons will always be made but there will never be another Sean Taylor

LB

Hi all,

Long weekend of shooting and was out. I hope things are good with you, Hassan.

I've got an issue: is there anyway I can find out where to watch all UM games? I know a bunch are on the ESPN family, but is there a weblink for the smaller games (i.e. Bethune-Cookman)? Maybe contact someone in the athletic department?

I'll listen to WQAM if necessary, but I'd rather not.

I'm also curious about the next target. Go Cunningham!

LB

Stargazers' lament: Michael Dyer has been axed from Arkansas State.

That's not a typo. Michael Dyer was dismissed by his own offensive coordinator at Auburn.

LB

"ACC commissioner John Swofford is equally confident in the ACC’s return to the top. Speaking at the ACC Kickoff on Sunday, he addressed the whole issue of the league’s BCS record.

“I have to believe there will be a day when that 3-12 becomes 12-3,” Swofford said."

Not until UM claims an ACC bid, it won't. See the records.
