Gas prices hurt fishing charters, too

Posted: Tuesday, July 12, 2005

Like the major airlines, fishing charter companies' largest daily operating expense is fuel cost. Also like the airlines, a fishing charter company can not raise fares fast enough or high enough to offset the ever increasing cost of fuel, as well as other expenses, without causing "sticker shock" to prospective customers. Unlike the airlines, fishing charter companies cannot appeal to the U.S. Congress to bail them out before going bankrupt. The fishing charter industry can not support a "tourist tax."

Rally is reason to be thankful

It was my privilege to attend the recent "Happy Birthday America Rally" celebrating our freedoms in America.

The entire content of the service was so beautiful, heartwarming and empowering.

I have attended many Fourth of July events over the years including a spectacular one in Washington, D.C. but none any better than the one we had right here in town July 3.

The words and music reminded me again of our great freedoms and America's blessing from God. We are so blessed.

If you have not attended this celebration I would encourage you to plan to do so next year. I am certain you will not be disappointed. For those of you who were there I know you will look forward to returning.

What a great community, state and country we share.
