7/29 - Special Note:  At least 4 more lots of the submerged land in the Munyon's Cove area of Singer Island have traded hands. This is the area/historic cove that's just east of Little Munyon Island. If you read the sign at 5281 Ocean Drive there is 1 more under contract for a total of 6 lots now owned or controlled by Renegade Trust.  Each lot is approximately 100ft by 2300ft (approx 1/2 mile). You can visit this PAPA link to view the property lines: http://www.co.palm-beach.fl.us/papa/Asps/papagis/papagis.aspx?qvalue=56434222000010080 .



8/31 - Special Note:  I had a strange msg. via LinkedIn from a George Black this morning and then find my name with a complaint about a copright infringement all over his Port of Palm Beach Post website and twitter feeds.   I've tried to respond but have heard nothing back as of yet.  George, my contact info is all over this website. I'd love to discuss any issues that you might think that you have?  

8/31 - Update:  Mr George Black Jr. apparently owns www.portofpalmbeachpost.com.  He is claiming that SIPNews and his site look the same (which i feel is crazy) and claims that I have infringed his rights.  I firmly disagree, I did not use, borrow or emulate anything from his site.  He has posted my name on his website and twitter feed with a claim that I have infringed his copyrights. 
So what do you think?  (Love to hear your thoughts as I stew over this one)....

9/1 - Update:  Very sorry to have to take time out of the day to write this note.   Singerislandpulse.com was first published online and publicily available beginning in early 2011. The copyrights for this site are in full effect from early 2011 to current. This site and all content were put online by me.  SIP'News in no way copies or emulates portofpalmbeachpost.com (including design elements, source codes, image, or even the formats are even closely similar) - I take this claim as a personal offense and assault on me.  This free site consists of a few basic html pages layed out in MS Frontpage and linked together, the other site is a dynamically generated open source wordpress news template with .  I started updating the news pages after I stepped down from a year of volunteering my time on the board of directors for the Singer Island Civic Association where I had started and managed a weekly news email that grew to reach over 3000 people per week.  This site is a personal site owned by Michael C Blasdell, a 16 year local Singer Island resident and United States Air Force Veteran of Operations Desert Shield and Storm. It is simply a place for my neighbors in this area to see mention of our area around the world and to network or share information.     i've spent the majority of my life trying to help others (very often at no profit or on a volunteer basis).  I will continue to do so and will swear all of the above is accurate in court ....and BE ADVISED that I can very easily show clear documentation from my files and from independant third party website archvie sites to prove that this incredibly simple and poorly designed site is my work product.  Claims of infringment of the portofpalmbeach.com website are TOTALLY and completely FALSE.    This IS a free site and commUNITY resource for friends, neighbors and welcome visitors of our area from South to North and the waters around us.

25 years ago yesterday I was waking to learn of the crash of a C-5 transport plane that had just dropped my rescue team off a few days prior, for a long deployment in SE Asia for operartions Desert Storm and Shield. Only 4 of the 17 crew lived. My team dodged a bullet that day and several more after.   We should be spending our time celebrating those that have served and those that have sacrificed their lives for our nation ....and then working together as neighbors, residents and citizens to make America the great place that it is.
