Davis Islands News Letter March 2018

 

 

 

 THE DAVIS ISLANDS NEWSLETTER

Greetings and welcome to the March issue of the Islands View newsletter. Spring starts this month and with it comes planting, landscaping and if you’re like me, a determination to grow veggies. I’ll let you know how far I get with that project soon!

March is also a great time to get outside and enjoy our beautiful islands life. Take a walk, bike the trail, take up tennis or head down to the DI Yacht Club on a Thursday night and sail with a crew!

We are so fortunate to have so many outdoor options in our community to help kick start our March!

Hope to see you around the Islands!

Give your yard a Little “Aqua-Love” this Spring
Spring is almost here! Do you have plans to re-landscape? If so,  will you be Florida-Friendly?
Believe it or not, the number one use of our municipal water supplies is the irrigation of lawns and landscaping.
Why is this problematic? The over use of municipal H2O directly affects the aquifer, which is the source of our drinking water.  The aquifer also supports our natural springs and a variety of eco systems. Not to mention, the fertilizers and pesticides we use to make our lawns look great, negatively impacts our lakes, bays and rivers.
How can we be better?
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences developed the Florida Friendly Landscaping Program,which promotes 9 principles to preserve and protect our natural water resources.
 
Here they are from the FloridaYards.org website:
 
1.     Right Plant, Right Place- Choose plants that can survive our Florida heat with minimum need for water, pesticide or fertilizer.
2.     Water Efficiently- Only water when your lawn really needs it.
3.     Fertilize Appropriately- Less is best.
4.     Mulch- Two-Three inches of mulch will help retain moisture and reduce weeds.
5.     Attract Wildlife- Think butterfly plants.
6.     Manage Yard Pests Responsibly- Choose pesticides wisely and the more natural the better.
7.     Recycle- Composted grass clippings and yard trimmings provide nutrients to the soil and reduce waste.
8.     Reduce Stormwater Runoff- Doing so will reduce pollutants into our bay.
9.     Protect the Waterfront- Waterfront property is fragile. Protecting it will help to maintain freshwater and marine ecosystems.
 
There are terrific recources out there to help all of us be more Florida- Friendly this year. And, I personally can’t wait to see Davis Islands look better than ever!

March Islands Events

Book of the Month

As we move about our busy lives each day, week, month and year we can tend to forget about those who are serving our country.  This month one of the books I read really jolted me back to the reality our military men and women face who are on the front lines.  The book “RED PLATOON: A True Story of American Valor”  by Medal of Honor recipient Clinton Romesha was a harrowing description of the Battle of Keating, the most isolated and inaccessible outpost in Afghanistan.  This battle gives vivid details of the battle between less than 60 Black Knight Troops vs over 350 Taliban insurgents.  The accounts of bravery, leadership, decision making, friendship and loss are presented in such compelling details that it took me less than 3 days to read!
We continually hear about celebrities and famous folks who are role models, and they just might be, however once you have read this book I would wager to say your definition might change.

Gasparilla 2018

Gasparilla seems to have gone off without a hitch…or should I say without a major hitch! In fact, according to Tampa PD the arrest numbers were low!
Our islands were a buzz with invasion parties and boat watchers.  I have heard from a few restaurant owners and they were packed too.
If you are interested in cleaning up beads from our waterways and surrounding green spaces, learn about Green Gasparilla!
The pirate fest continues with the Sant’ Yago Knight Parade and the Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic. Are you running this year?
Green Gasparilla: February 3- 9am

Sant’ Yago Knight Parade :  

February 10 – 7:00 pm
Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic: February 24-25 – 5K, 8K, 15K and Half Marathon – Please see website for start times!

Book of the Month

Each January I like to start the year reading one of my favorite books “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill.  I am sure you have either heard or read this book at some time in your life and for me it is one of the original sources for which ALL success books originated.  The essence of this book truly brings to life the reality of how humans can achieve greatness and success in whatever they truly desire.
If you have never read this book or it has been years since you have read it, I encourage you to acquire a copy.  Within the first chapter you will not only feel reinvigorated to accomplishing your goals, but most importantly reprogram how you might think about success and achievement.

How to Experience Islands Living in 2018!

As Islands residents we can sometimes forget about all the great amenities we have at our fingertips.  In fact I would venture to say that we have more amenities than any other neighborhood in the City of Tampa.  To this end, I compiled a list of things you can do this year:

  • Take a Walk or jog on the 1.3 mile Davis Islands trail.
  • Take a Dip in the Roy Jenkins Community Pool that is now heated and open year round.
  • Play a Game, set or match at the Sandra Freedman Tennis Complex’s clay courts.
  • Take Fido for a swim or run at the Davis Islands Dog Parks.
  • Launch your Boat or kayak at the Davis Islands Public Boat Ramp.
  • Picnic and Play at Seaplane Basin or the Thumbprint on the South Part of the Islands
  • The Plane the Plane watch the plains take off and land from Peter O Knight air port.
  • Ride the “Tour de Islands” i.e. join one of the many road bike groups that cycle week.
  • Rent a Bike from “Coast” bike share and ride from the Islands to Downtown.
  • Take the Pirate Taxi Boat from Channel Dr. (near the ball fields)
  • Take in a Little League baseball or softball game at the Bayshore Little League fields on Columbia Dr.
  • Find a Special spot around the Islands to take in a little fishing.

Book of the Month

Book of the Month
This past month I had the chance to read a great autobiography from the legendary college basketball coach John Wooden “Wooden on Leadership”
Wooden holds the record for most NCAA basketball championships at 10 in 12 years.  That being said after reading this book it seems the most important thing to Wooden was the development of leaders both on and off the court rather than the championships.
Over his coaching tenure, he developed a pyramid of success that he utilized with all his teams. This pyramid can also be used in business and personal life.
Great book about a solid individual.  I am always seeking new books to read so if you have a favorite let me know!

Book of the Month

This past month a special book came across my desk, while it is a short read it is inspiring. “Make Your Bed Little Things That Can Change Your Life..and Maybe the World” written by Admiral William H McRaven (Retired). Admiral McRaven combines his personal experiences as a Navy Seal and US Naval Commander with pragmatic thoughts on how to improve yourself with just small changes. In fact this book was inspired by a commencement address he gave at the University of Texas in 2014. Click to see this commencement address. I think this is a great book, in particular for our kids to read as they are going into high-school. I am always seeking new books to read so if you have a favorite let me know!

Fantastic Halloween in the Village Turnout 2017!

This years Halloween in the Village was a huge success, with more families and dogs than ever before.
First, a big shout out to Jenn Fadal of Wag Natural Pet Market for creating and organizing this event each year.  This was the 8th Annual event and the number of participants continue to increase.
Second, a special thank you to PROforma or all of the fantastic goody bags with so much swag.  Five-hundred goody bags were passed out with tons of toys and treats for the kids. And thank you to Fountain Mediterranean who graciously welcomes all kids, parents and dogs to take over their stage and patio that day.
Third, this event would not have been possible without the continued sponsorship of Islands and off-Islands businesses.

Book of the Month

As a young child and teenager I did not like to read and would avoid at all costs.  That has changed as I became an adult and now have a child of my own.  Each month I work to read 2 to 3 books and I thought it would be fun to pass what is on my bookself or in most cases my iPad.  This past month’s book is “Relentless: From Good to Great to Unstoppable” written by Tim Grover.  Tim is the training and conditioning coach for basketball greats like Michael Jordan, Dwayne Wade and Kobe Bryant.  This book really captures the essence of what is necessary to truly be at an elite level in anything you do and in particular the mental attitude.  It is a quick read and many of his example with his professional athletes are entertaining.
I am always seeking new books to read so if you have a favorite let me know!

Underground Utilities

While some would consider power lost on Davis Islands a common occurrence, the impact of Hurricane Irma on creating an extended power outages to the Islands was more eye opening.
The issue of underground utilities has been on the Davis Islands Civic Association’s action item list for awhile, and with the most recent outage, this issue could be gaining some traction.   In particular, there is a subcommittee within the association that has been working with our City Council representatives to develop City Ordinances that would allow communities like ours to underground their aerial lines.
Currently, Hillsborough County has such an ordinance and the Dana Shores community served as a pilot program.  While there are varying opinions on whether to underground or not,  the first goal is to at least have an ordinance at the City level that would allow communities to evaluate, discuss and decide on the issue.
For more detailed information on the currently process underway or to volunteer you can contact the Civic Association at leslie.stein2@verizon.net

Hurricane Debris Collection

The most recent information from the City of Tampa regarding debris collection from Hurricane Irma began on Sept 14th and will continue through October 13th.  Debris should be separated as follows click here
