C19, 20 & 21 Hamilton Harbor Yacht Club has been recognized as one of Floridas newest Clean Marinas, the 11th in Collier County. Representatives from the state Department of Environmental Protection and Clean Boating Partnership awarded the designation in a bayside presentation that was attended by Lt. Gov. Kottkamp. During the presentation, the lieutenant governor commended Hamilton Harbor for its environmental stewardship. Only one out of every 12 marinas in Florida has achieved the Clean Marina designation. The Clean Marina action plan has more than 150 steps in categories ranging from emergency preparedness, hurricane planning and fire safety to the management of fuel, solid and liquid wastes, chemicals, batteries and storm water, among others. Ted Maupin, director of marina operations at Hamilton Harbor, said the clubs goal was to meet or exceed every Clean Marina requirement. We provide boaters with a sewage pump at every boat slip, instead of just one or two pumps for the entire marina, he said. Storm water is recycled for cleaning, he added, and the sea wall was built to be submerged at high tide in order to restore natural tidal flowsHamilton Harbor Yacht Club earns state's Clean Marina status SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY SEE YACHT CLUB, A18 COURTESY PHOTOHamilton Harbor Yacht Club takeoff?ready for A DAY IN THE LIFE OF SOUTHWEST FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT STORY BY ROGER WILLIAMS | RWILLIAMS@FLORIDAWEEKLY.COMhings have really changed. Airports arent as bad as they once were at least, not the one that has the 12,000-foot runway perched 30 feet above sea level about 30 miles northeast of Naples. Not that Douglas Adams was wrong, necessarily, when he said, Its no coincidence that in no known language does the phrase As pretty as an airport appear. But beauty isnt everything. Like its brethren throughout the world, Southwest Florida Inter-Tnational Airport RSW in airport code is a litmus test of the region stretching from Naples to Fort Myers, and beyond. In appearance, in the people it draws, and in its presentation of itself and all of us, however, its like no other place. RSW is the crossroads of our culture, just as grand urban train stations or great harbors once played such a role in cultures everywhere.REVELATIONS ABOUT THEAT RSWSEE TAKEOFF, A8 TRAVELING PARADE
