News from Swish Appeal:

It’s only fitting that the best point guard of all time in the WNBA is on this special team.

State Farm Insurance is well known for its “Born to Assist” marketing campaign, featuring Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul and his twin brother insurance agent, Cliff Paul who wears quirky diamond-patterend sweaters, thick rimmed glasses, and a mustache.

On Christmas Thursday, State Farm released a new commercial where Cliff Paul joins the company’s elite National Bureau of Assists, or NBA. He joins four more twins of famous basketball players, one of whom is a familiar face to women’s basketball fans, which one WNBA superstar announced on Twitter earlier this afternoon:

Meet Summer Bird, the twin sister of Seattle Storm point guard Sue Bird, who is also known as “The Tenacinator” of the NBA. Though Summer doesn’t look too thrilled in the snapshot below, let’s face it.

State officials urge boat safety for July 4th

State officials urge boat safety for July 4th
News from Online Athens:

SOCIAL CIRCLE | State officials are urging boat safety this July 4th and reminding boaters of a new law requiring them to complete an education course approved by the Department of Natural Resources.

Officials say rangers will be working “to keep the lakes and rivers safe and patrolling for those who make poor decisions and unsafe choices.”

The new law took effect on July 1 and requires anyone born on or after Jan. 1, 1998, must complete the course before operating a motorized vessel on state waters. The law also requires anyone renting a boat or personal watercraft to watch a short video and complete a safety checklist unless they have completed a boater education course.

Officials say 40 boating incidents so far this year have resulted in three deaths and 28 injuries.

Say Goodbye to Smelly Shoes

I know it is not a very pleasant thought but it is not surprising. As the average foot has 250,000 sweat glands it is safe to say all feet sweat. If you are not wearing socks there is nothing to soak up this excess moisture. This can:

- Cause your feet to swell and rub against your shoe creating blisters and calluses.
- Make your shoes change shape and look old and worn quicker.

- Make your feet smell more.

State of State focuses on boating safety, budget plans

State of State focuses on boating safety, budget plans
News from Gainesville Times:

ATLANTA — Gov. Nathan Deal laid out his vision for 2014, along with his budget priorities, Thursday morning in his State of the State address.

Among Deal’s priorities are public safety, education, health care and boating safety laws, including changing the blood alcohol laws for boating. Members of the Hall County Legislative Delegation said they agreed with his vision of the future of Georgia.

Early in his speech, Deal addressed boating safety with two laws named after children who died on Lake Lanier this past summer.

The Jake and Griffin Prince Law would change boating under the influence laws to more closely mirror driving laws. It would lower the BUI blood alcohol limit to 0.08 from 0.10, and penalties would be similar to DUI consequences. The pontoon the boys were on was hit by a boater who has been charged with being under the influence of alcohol.

“If you are too drunk to drive an automobile, you are too drunk to drive a boat,” Deal said.

Deal also proposed The Kile Glover Boat Education Law. It would require boat safety education and make wearing life jackets mandatory for children who are 13 years old or younger. It would also place restrictions on what kind of boats and other vessels children and teens could operate.

Most state agencies have been targeted for budget cuts for the amended 2013 budget and the…………… continues on Gainesville Times

BILOXI, Miss.: DMR leases boats from director’s foundation | State | The Sun …
News from SunHerald.com:

— The Mississippi Department of Marine Resources has spent more than $ 1.4 million in public money on two recreational fishing boats leased from a foundation managed by the agency’s director.

The Sun Herald reports ( http://bit.ly/VspAbr) that the Mississippi Marine Resources Foundation supplies DMR with a 36-foot Topaz open fisherman and a 42-foot Californian convertible. Paid for with public money, the DMR leases, upgrades, repairs, maintains and stores the boats, which are valued at $ 350,000 and $ 284,000 for insurance purposes.

The newspaper reports that Bill Walker, the head of DMR, manages the foundation.

The revelation comes at a time when DMR is facing state and federal audits. The agency’s use of public money to buy and conserve coastal property also is under scrutiny.

Walker told the Sun Herald that DMR leased the boats for the Artificial Reef Program to take people out and educate them about marine resources.

Walker said the foundation gets money from private donations.

“No state money goes to the foundation other than reimbursements for insurance on the vessels and whatever they spend on maintenance and repairs, and all of that is covered under a lease agreement between the department and the foundation,” he said.

When asked if the two boats are necessary, Walker said…………… continues on SunHerald.com

Top NY court rejects state liability for inspectors’ role in boat disaster …
News from Washington Post:

ALBANY, N.Y. — New York’s top court on Thursday rejected damages claims against state inspectors who continually recertified a tour boat for 48-passenger capacity before it overturned on an Adirondack lake in 2005, drowning 20 people on a fall foliage tour.

The Court of Appeals unanimously ruled that the state generally isn’t liable for “the negligent performance” of government functions unless it has some “special duty” to those hurt.

Federal investigators afterward said the 40-foot Ethan Allen should have been limited to 14 passengers. The boat tipped over in clear, sunny weather, sending 47 tourists and the captain into Lake George. The National Transportation Safety Board concluded that “insufficient stability,” partly from the passenger load, was the probable cause of the accident.

Nineteen of those killed were from Michigan. One was from Ohio.

“Although the law is clear, the upshot is that, regardless of any negligence on the part of the state, the victims of this disastrous wreck are essentially left without adequate remedy,” Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman wrote for the unanimous court. “The Legislature currently has a proposal before it to require public vessels to carry marine protection and indemnity insurance. We note that such a requirement — had it existed — might have been able to provide a modicum of relief here.” continues on Washington Post

Warm State or Cold State? Why Boats Wintered in Either Need “Freeze …

Warm State or Cold State? Why Boats Wintered in Either Need “Freeze …
News from ParamusPost.com:

By Mel Fabrikant    Tuesday, September 11, 2012, 02:58 PM EDT   

Boats stored for the winter in regions with consistent below-freezing temperatures in heated storage facilities have it best, except when winter storms bring power outages and the heat goes off. Suddenly, the boat’s motor, which is often not winterized or prepared for freezing temperatures, becomes a liability as water in the engine block freezes, destroying it. And for boats stored in warmer states, an unexpected cold spell can lead to ice damaging the engine block. That’s why no matter where you keep your boat over the winter, Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) recommends having ice and freeze coverage on your boat’s insurance policy.

Ironically, the most claims for ice-related engine damage are from temperate states such as Florida, where boaters are caught off-guard when temperatures suddenly plummet overnight for an unexpected freeze. Even a small amount of ice in an engine block can exert tremendous pressure, cracking cylinder walls or other internal engine passageways. The good news is that insurance for boats in warmer, temperate states usually have this feature automatically added to their policy, including BoatUS’ industry leading Yacht Policy and it’s Perso…………… continues on ParamusPost.com

2 bodies recovered at marina in Washington state

2 bodies recovered at marina in Washington state
News from WDRB:

BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) – Divers recovered two bodies Thursday from sunken debris from a fire that burned boats and a boathouse at a marina in Washington state.

The two have not been officially identified, but police said the families of Jim Langei, 43, and Sterling Taylor, 33, have been notified. The two lived aboard a 42-foot boat that burned and sank in Friday’s fire at the Squalicum Harbor.

They owned the America’s Cup coffee shop near the marina. Police said a 911 call from the boat indicated the two were trapped. Their boat was one of as many as 10 boats destroyed in the fire.

Witnesses reported hearing fuel tank explosions as a black cloud drifted over downtown Bellingham, which is about 80 miles north of Seattle.

The fire was difficult to fight because of its size, and crews didn’t have a fire boat, Fire Department Assistant Chief Roger Christensen said at the time. The city decommissioned an old fire boat last year and didn’t have the money to replace it.

It took nearly a week to recover the bodies because the roof of the boathouse had collapsed on the boats. High winds delayed a barge with a crane needed to remove debris.

Divers started rigging debris for the crane Wednesday and removed the roof debris.

Officials expect the investigation into the cause of the fire and cleanup work will take seve…………… continues on WDRB

State: Company sold invalid boat insurance
News from NBC2 News:

A Port Charlotte insurance business owner is accused of selling invalid boat insurance policies. Insurance Depot owner Jack Alexander and former employee Kristin Decker-Hopkins were arrested after a state investigation.

Detectives allege the two knowingly sold policies for a company not licensed in the state.

Alexander told NBC2 he thought the company, International Water Safety Foundation, was legitimate and always had customers’ best interests at heart.

In the arrest report, investigators claim Alexander was warned more than 4 years ago that IWSF wasn’t licensed in the state.

Alexander contended any money that was collected on the policies was forwarded to the now-bankrupt Canadian company.

“Never in my wildest days did I think a company would try to do business in Florida and not be authorized,” said Alexander. “I took the company at face value.”

The business owner went on to say he believes there could be other boaters in our area insure…………… continues on NBC2 News
