The printed t-shirt is a Florida invention, when back in the 50's several companies
started to decorate T-shirts with Miami resort names. ("We copied and pasted
the sentence you just read from Wikipedia and all we got
was a lousy t-shirt!"). Today, you can get nearly anything printed
on a t, including Charlie Crist (another Florida invention but born in Altoona, lives in Tallahassee
and wants to move to D.C. And how is it that Charlie
Crist's hair has gone almost completely white, but his eyebrows
have stayed completely black? Is this some kind of underground
signal to a Just for Men eyebrow-tinting group? Have those
eyebrows been cleared by Homeland Security?) But we digress ...
raise some eyebrows when you sport the astoundingly colorful
the Sand t-shirt, available this Saturday, May 23rd for
just $10 at Treasure Island's 11-hour rockin' country, funky-bluesy,
island-jammy beach concert.
Mitigation only sounds dull. (It's probably a
federal requirement to give a pedestrian name to something
exciting. Like those spacewalking astronauts fixing a
telescope whirling around our planet at five miles per second? Are
they on a "Screaming Space Rocket Repair Ride"? No. They're on what
is federally called an "Extra Vehicular Activity." Dull, dull, and
dull.) Flood Mitigation (zzzz) is actually flood protection
and prevention, an extremely progressive program (with
money and everything!) to keep your home or business, in the event
of a flood, high and dry. We'll remind you again about the community
flood meeting coming up Wednesday, June 17th at 1pm at
TI City Hall, as the date gets closer, on the
who, what, why, when, where and the how come.
Outstanding in its field are the
field trips, part of TI's Summer
Camp for Kids. Parks and Recreation Director Cathy "Fun Queen" Hayduke says the kids this
summer will go bowling, ice skating, spend a day at the Museum of
Science and Industry, hit Lowry Park Zoo, check out some cool
flicks, take in a couple of Rays games and be humming Johnny
Cash's "I've Been Everywhere" by summer's end. Camp registration is
now, Mom and Dad, at the TI Recreation Office. Download
the proper forms here.
Camp runs June 8th thru August 14th.
