South Florida Social Circle Ends
A New Time -I've loved the years, (17 years), that I've been puttingtogether events, and have met a lot of wonderful people who have becomeclose friends. After many yeas of putting together social events, theater,dinners, group travel, and fund raisers for community organizations, I'vedecided to end South Florida Social Circle and concentrate on some personalendeavors. In my last email that went out, I said I was selling my home (itsold). I will be staying in the greater Fort Lauderdale/Wilton Manors area,and look forward to seeing all of you out and about. This is the last emailfrom South Florida Social Circle.

-Engage in water war
Florida, including the state's congressional delegation, finally seems to beputting up more of a fight in the tri-state water war that endangers thePanhandle. But the entire state has to fight soon, and hard. So far, Georgia is the winner in the decades-old fight with Florida andAlabama. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has cut flows of fresh water fromGeorgia's Lake Lanier to Panhandle rivers and Apalachicola Bay, where thewater sustains the oyster industry, and to Alabama, where it cools powerplants. In the meantime, Georgia has not curbed development, and just lastweek denied Atlanta's request to impose stricter outdoor wateringrestrictions than the state.
