BY MELISSA LATERZA - Marcy Levine was born and raised in East Windsor, New Jersey, located one hour from New York City. It is a rural town surrounded by farms and country.
“East Windsor was a great jump-off point to everywhere else,” said Marcy. “It’s 45 minutes away from Philadelphia and just 30 minutes away from the Jersey shore. My family spent the summers at Beach Haven, N.J. and our winter vacations in Venice. I really wanted to live on the beach.”

BY MARCY SHORTUSE - Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation commissioners have announced they intend to pursue a new “sportfish” designation that would include tarpon as a catch-and-release only species.
The determination was made at their Thursday, Sept. 6 meeting held in Tampa.
BY MARCY SHORTUSE - Tropical Storms Debby and Isaac didn’t pack much of a punch for Boca Grande, but they were good warm-ups for potential future storms. One of the most important things any resident or business owner can do right now, if they haven’t already, is to get their hurricane hang tags updated.
