MIYC Extended Cruise to Hawks Cay

While many MIYC Members were cruising in the Bahamas, Bill and Sandy Wallen and their wonderful boat "Flamingo," cruised over to Duck Key for the week of March 9, finishing up the week up at Faro Blanco. Along for the ride to the (not so quiet) mid-Keys were the Holts, Winterhalters, and Henry Stanley, all of whom bunked in at Hawks Cay Resort, still alive and jumping with vacationers and Spring Breakers before the big close-down occurred. Hawks Cay was loaded with activities by the hour, but the highlight was the people swimming with the dolphins, which were not only making children laugh and giggle, but were doing their fancy stunts all on their own. After a pleasant overnight stop and dinner at Faro Blanco, another charming mid-Key, we cruised home with following seas and breezes, ready to get back to Marco and begin our "Social Distancing."

MIYC Spring Cruise to the Exumas

By Peggy Frazier If you like crystal clear water, beautiful deserted beaches and friendly people, then the Exuma Cays of the Bahamas Islands are for you. The entire Cruise was among the islands with no overnight travel required. Some stops were marinas and some anchoring. We visited islands in this chain with small hotels, restaurants, bars and local grocery stores. Others were uninhabited except for

some tropical birds on the beaches and multicolored fish in the clear water. Though Hurricanes have ravished some parts of the Bahamas, the Exumas were not affected and the Bahamas needed the tourism revenue as they deal with the Abacos destruction. The 28 MIYC Members who set sail from Palm Cay were challenged by some difficulties with the Moorings but with Geoff Walker's steady direction four boats departed on Saturday, March 14 for Norman Cay. With stops at Staniel Cay and Highbourne Cay we experienced the calm seas and fair winds and returned on the 18th of March to Palm Cay with all boats and crew on board! The Marrs, Comeauxs, Everitts, Kraemers, Kendalls, Fraziers, Doeringers, Margoliss, Niblacks, Pointers, Dorisons, and Muthers want to express our heartfelt thanks to Geoff & Cinda Walker for facilitating an amazing adventure! Stay tuned for a future Boater's night with Captains Marr (Navigation Director), Comeaux, Frazier & Niblack & their crews sharing the frustration, fun and frivolity ♥

Chairman’s Report

Well…life has certainly changed in the last month! The coronavirus pandemic has affected us all. And I am sure that by the time you read this, there will be even more impact. In our collective memories, it is hard to relate this to any previous experience. I have written a number of Chairman’s Emails to the membership to communicate the impact on the Club and steps we have taken or expect to take. I trust you have been able to see and read these messages. Some of you have responded to those notes with comments of encouragement and support, which I certainly appreciate. Probably the most frequent question I receive is: “What will the impact of the coronavirus crisis be on the Club and what will be the impact on me as a member?” As you know, we had to shut down the Club in response to Governor DeSantis’ Executive Order relating to food and drink establishments. We have been fortunate that our results for fiscal 2020 through the 20 th of March have been strong. This put us in a good position when the Executive Order was issued. Although we do not know how long the Executive Order will be in place, we have assumed an updated budget forecast that includes being closed through the end of May. This 60-day shutdown, along with pruning a number of discretionary expenses for the remainder of the year suggests we will still have a positive operational profit for 2020. More importantly, our monthly cash flow forecast also indicates favorable results. The cash flow forecast does assume we will bill 2021 dues in July. The July billing date represents our normal dues billing cycle. We are fortunate that many members choose to pay their dues in the July – September time frame. We have assumed a normal dues payment cycle for our 2020 cash flow projection. We do not, at this time, believe a special assessment will be necessary, based on available information. Certainly, if most members pay their

2020 dues as soon as billed, we would have an add i t i ona l l e v e l o f c o m f o r t f o r t h e remainder of the fiscal year. Information related to the coronavirus threats to our society, our economy and our friends and neighbors continues to evolve. In the meantime, we are continuing to closely

Dave Everitt Chairman

monitor expenditures, refine our forecasts and plan for eventual resumption of our Club activities. We are hopeful we will be able to re-open prior to the end of May but are also prepared to extend our shutdown period, if necessary. We will continue to keep you updated as we get more information and incorporate that information into our operations planning. We have put the project to repair our seawall and pursue the Riverside Marina on a 90 to 120-day hold. It does not seem prudent to continue with our previous schedule during the current environment. We will update the project assumptions when we get a better picture of the overall economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic in the next few months. I wish all of you continued good health. Please continue to heed recommendations to minimize interaction with others and practice ‘social distancing’ if you have to be around others. I look forward to seeing you all at the Club again soon! Dave Everitt Chairman, Board of Directors Marco Island Yacht Club

Yoga Yoga in the Courtyard during March provided some calming relief from the stresses developing on the world and national scene. The Yogis were careful to keep at least six feet apart. Our own Jill Kiley stepped in when Debbie had to stop and care for her Father. Yoga is a wonderful way to relax, stay in shape and forget about problems elsewhere. The courtyard is the perfect venue for Yoga. Lying under the palm trees with cooling breezes could not be more relaxing. Hopefully, we can continue someday soon.

Check Out Our Enhanced Website! We’ve been making improvements to our website—check it out! It now has more information and it’s easier to use! Drop down menus are one new feature that makes it easier to find the information you’re looking for. In “Member Central” (the password-protected side of the website for Members only) you can more quickly access the roster, pay your statement, check the calendar of events, see our Fleet List, join a committee and more! Log in and take a spin!

Also, take a look at the new information we’ve put on the “public” side of the website. Under “About Us,” we have added a Club History, a map with directions, and photos of our Bridge Officers. Under the “Boating” tab, we have added information about our various types of cruises, the sailing program, information for visiting cruisers (under “Port Captain”) and safety and training information. And there will be even more to come!

Another Burgee Exchange! Scott and Mary Coles visited the Club on the same evening the Twilight Golfers were enjoying dinner. The Coles are members of the Royal Marsh Harbor Yacht Club in Abaco, Bahamas. Rear Commodore, Tom Wentworth was there with the golf group. So there was a burgee exchange!

Marco Island Yacht Club Sailing Center Sailing School Auction Update With the Club being closed indefinitely, we obviously have cancelled our Fund Raiser for our Sailing school. We hope that once the Club has reopened, we will be able to reschedule a Friday night for the event immediately! I ask that those of you who have verbally pledged monies towards new boats, sails and other equipment, please don’t forget about us!! We have so many great Silent Auctions items as well…..original art, antique ship clock, gift certificates for golfing, restaurants, excursions and other services. Thank you all for all the encouragement with our Sailing Programs and please stay safe and healthy! See you on the other side!

Peg & Pete Frazier Share National Allegiance with their Neighbors

We hope you are enjoying being safe in your home and taking time to take a brisk walk with purpose while you get your Vitamin D. Be sure to relish those gratitude moments during your outside time and look forward with optimism to the time when we can once again share good food and a few laughs together. We have been playing taps and the National Anthem followed by Amazing Grace and God

Bless America on our speaker on the lanai at sunset. People come out on their lanais and wave a flag if they have one and follow it with a prayer that is consistent with their beliefs. It is something we can do to connect during these challenging times and even though we do not have our Colors ritual we can join in spirit as we watch sunset wherever we are. Hugs & ♥

Sheltering in Place - A Boater's Tale

Gentle Members,

settle the boat into the dock, to shower and change for our much-anticipated dinner with the Rich’s at Punta Gorda’s p r emi e r r es t au r an t , The Perfect Caper. After an epic meal, four mariners and one fuzzy deckhand repaired to our f lybridge for after dinner drinks, laughter and complete happiness stretching far into the cool and starry night.

It began like any normal trip on the boat. The premier event in the FCYC year, the Change of Watch was nigh, and we were determined to bring home to Marco Island Yacht Club the FCYC prizes for most attendees by boat, and maybe even most attendees overall. Jim and Jan Rich, aboard Ocean Hammock, set off from Marco Island right after morning coffee. Your humble scribe, with Admiral Kelley and fuzzy crew Bud aboard Uncorked untied from Naples around 1pm. It was Thursday, March 12, 2020, and the world back then, all that time ago, was still a pretty normal place.

Tom Wentworth Rear Commodore

The next day the Richs and we went shopping and sightseeing at Fisherman’s Village in Punta Gorda, a strangely not-very-crowded Fisherman’s Village. We came back to find two more FCYC boats, one couple

Sea conditions were glorious, less than 6 inches of “sea”, a gentle breeze wafting up from Havana and Key West. No cloud intruded upon the sapphire blue of a serene, untroubled Florida sky. We talked over the cell phone with Jim about important topics, like whether he had his Navy Blue blazer and Club tie to wear for Saturday night’s gala Change of Watch Ball. The first inkling of trouble came around 4pm, one hour out of our destination in Punta Gorda. Jim phoned to say that, on approach to the dock, the Dockmaster at Isles Yacht Club had just informed him that the FCYC events had been cancelled, but that boats under way could still come in, if they wished. The plan was quickly revised: If there would be no FCYC, we would hold our own little gathering with the Richs. The first ad hoc meeting of MIYC Abroad in Punta Gorda was about to be convened. We glided into the Isles Yacht Club just behind Ocean Hammock. There was just enough time to

from the Field Club in Sarasota, another from Marathon Yacht Club, who had come all this way to accept the 2019 FCYC Yachtsman of the Year Award, having visited all 36 clubs aboard their boat in that one year. The news on TV that evening was turning grim, and, amazingly, there were no longer any Ubers available to take us to dinner. Google suggested something called Happy Taxi, which turned out to be an aging, box-like vehicle which had once been bright orange in color, driven by a very chipper lady about our age, who assured us that the tapas wine bar Jan Rich had proposed was indeed an excellent choice.

Sheltering in Place - ABoater's Tale We opened the doors to a nicely decorated, welcoming little restaurant with a music trio in one corner and only about ¼ of the tables with customers, each and every one of whom looked at us rather apprehensively, at least until it could be established that we were neither coughing nor sneezing. Dinner was excellent, the music great, and Miss Happy Taxi brought us back to a still and moonlit dock. Saturday dawned for us with news from the Dockmaster that Isles Yacht Club was closing down its main dining room, which would have been the site of the FCYC gala dinner and dance. I kidded Jim Rich about no longer being able to show off his impeccably tailored

cream parlor with a drive thru that had turned pizzeria, but I bit my tongue and waited to see what would happen. Inside, we could see that the fast food joint had undergone a transformation. Paintings with Italian scenes dominated the hand-plastered wal l s, interspersed with Italian musical instruments like mandolas, mandolins, a lute or two and even a regular guitar. Festive-looking tables with crisp linen covers dotted the room, around 1/3 filled with diners. The only thing missing was the usual canned music from overhead speakers. Instead, we heard the pleasant clink of crystal and flatware, over a low hum of contented conversation. After ordering from an extensive menu filled with delectable-sounding Italian fare, and after the delicious appetizers were delivered, a slight sudden draft made us look toward the kitchen. A handsome thirty-something couple swept into the room through the kitchen doors. The petite young woman was vivacious, with sparkling Genoese or maybe Venetian eyes. The good-looking young man had a completely shaved head, with classic, chiseled Northern Italian features, and he was holding a beautifully decorated mandola, which he began to play. Out of his mouth came a sweet operatic tenor voice. As he moved in our direction, the young lady danced away. “..Stu core canta sempe nu taluorno...” he sang, right by our table. At the other end of the room, she replied, hands clapping, “…Sposamme, oje ne! Sposamme, oje ne!..”, then from both, “ ‘ncoppa, jamme ja, funiculi, funicula!” As each delectable course arrived, a new song would break out. Jan had truly found the perfect restaurant, and it was fabulous! The next day we waved goodbye to Jim and Jan Rich, who needed to be back on Marco for Monday morning. We stayed at Isles, having planned to look at investment properties, but there were few open houses. In the two or three that we visited, lonely-looking real estate agents stood well back as we walked through. No shaking of hands, no signing in with the communal pen. The age of social distancing was rapidly arriving. Our original plan was to continue up the coast as far as Clearwater Yacht Club, then take our time coming back, yacht club hopping, through the end of March. But we began to get messages from all the yacht clubs we had reserved that they were closing, so we resolved to go back home. (Continued on next page)

blue blazer and Club tie, borrowed as it was through the generosity of Commodore Ray Rosenberg. We asked Jan Rich (who had done so well finding the previous night’s dining spot) to find us a great place for the evening. After a few hours of diligent research, Jan announced that she had found the perfect restaurant, but that it was located in Port Charlotte, across the river. Kelley and I had prearranged to rent a car, which was duly delivered that afternoon, so there would be no problem driving into Port Charlotte. As the dinner hour approached, we four hopped into the car and headed off across the bridge over the Peace River, watching twenty or more vessels tied to mooring balls, every bow pointing toward the setting sun. We eventually found a long, narrow building with a bricked- up former drive-thru window. The sign proclaimed it to be “Rossini Trattoria Gastronomica”, but a trash can out back had “Sprinkles Ice Cream” stenciled on it. I groaned inwardly at the idea of dining at a former ice

Sheltering in Place - ABoater's Tale On Wednesday, March 18, we untied from Isles Yacht Club, headed for Naples. As we got out into the main channel in the wide Peace River and we got up on plane, the temperature suddenly shot up on the starboard engine. I shut it down and, with the Admiral at the con, looked below, where I found about 8” of water in the bilge. A hose on the starboard fuel cooler had burst, so we limped back to Isles on one engine. We made repairs over the next two days, which brought us to the weekend. By this time, the Club and restaurants had closed and all dining had moved to the boat. As we sat on the flybridge

Monday morning, bright and early, we headed out with Paradox II in the lead. Accustomed as we are to travel at around 20 knots, we found it relaxing and comforting to glide along at 8 knots with Dave and Shelly. The nearly flat Gulf was like being at the dock, no problem moving about the boat, very little engine noise, lovely vistas at every point of the compass. It was a lingering dream of a voyage, ending around 6pm at the Naples City Dock, where our Paradox II joined us for the night. Another potluck dinner, including Shelly’s delectable salmon, crowned the evening and the trip with an unforgettable evening of contentment with good friends. The next morning we watched our comrades set off for Marco Island and home. We were safe at home aboard our boat, but it seemed a bit quiet to be there all by ourselves. We’re at that same dock now, enjoying the fresh breezes coming up the Bay of Naples, the absence of curious tourists walking by (since the City Dock was closed to the public the other day), and our cocktail hour in the cockpit every evening, watching the light gently change from orange to deep purple, and waiting for the evening star to pop out like a golden bead in a velvet sky. We miss the Club, we miss our friends, and we miss all the good times, the joy and laughter. But, a new day comes tomorrow, and there was a brilliant red sunset tonight. It makes me think of the old seagoing rhyme, “red sky at night, sailor’s delight….”. That red sky gives me hope, the promise that tomorrow, some bright tomorrow, will bring us back to where we were, and more. We’ll value all our many friends all the more for having briefly lost the pleasure of being with them, and whenever we touch a friend’s hand, whenever we safely can touch a friend’s hand, it will mean so much more to us, in the Club and in our homes, when they’re filled again with friends, filled with laughter, filled with love. Tom Wentworth Rear Commodore

on Friday, musing about the coming weekend, Dave Randall and Shelly Derrough called to report that they had arrived back from the Bahamas via their own airplane. As we told them about our plight, they offered to jump onto “Paradox II” to come and join us! So it was that on Saturday, we welcomed Dave and Shelly to the slip next to us in Punta Gorda, just in time for docktails. We had potluck dinner aboard Uncorked, and laughed, and talked, and laughed some more far into the star-bathed night. Sunday night brought another potluck dinner aboard Paradox II, where we decided to return together to Naples the next day.

Introducing the state-of-the-art MIYC Riverside Marina Wet Slip Membership

Because market demand for boats over 65 feet has grown substantially over the past 10 years, the inventory of available slips large enough to accommodate them in Naples and south to Marco Island is tight. In addition, and for the same 10-year period, Southwest Florida accounts for a 10% growth in boats 40 to 65 feet. The MIYC Riverside Marina will provide 27 new slips, ranging from 50 to 124 feet. All slips are designed to be a minimum of 24 feet wide.

Wet Slip Memberships Do you know someone who wants to buy a bigger boat, but they don’t know where to keep it? Tell them about our new state-of-the-art Marina! They’ll get a top-of-the-line boat slip and Full Membership in the Club, too! The sales team is ready to answer any questions! Membership sales team: Captain Geoff Fahringer: 239-253-4091 Lee Dorison: 561-756-7375 Ken Gandy: 239-877-3777 Web: www.marcoislandyachtclub.net MIYC Phone: 239-394-0199

Some slips will have lifts, all slips will have water, electricity, pump-out facilities, lighting and security cameras. A full-time Dockmaster will be on hand for any needed assistance, and each Wet Slip Membership includes member- ship as a Full Member in the Yacht Club. Construction is slated to begin in 2020, to be completed in early 2021. Because slips are in high demand, now is the time to take advantage of this one-of-a-kind, turn- key, pre- construction investment opportunity.

Ahoy Members of MIYC! I hope this column finds you safe and well with family and/or other loved ones. Please know that the MIYC Clubhouse is being looked after on a day to day basis by Pam and myself. We are answering telephones, surveying the Club grounds, monitoring our refrigerators, wine coolers, HVAC units, etc. for daily temperatures as well as tracking new anticipated business and reorganizing our purveyors and suppliers during this transitional time. As most of you have figured out by now, I am by nature an optimistic fellow so when these uncertain times have reached their end, I look forward to the wonderful rebound that will occur. I would imagine that people who have never really cooked before are gaining some interest,

(possibly) whi le other “ foodies” l ike me are enjoying more time in their personal kitchens than ever before. Enjoy this recipe, feel free to call me a n y t i m e f o r a d v i c e (cooking related of course. Ha-ha) and/or questions about Club operat ions during this brief closing. 239-687-0840

Chicken Piccata Some people may wonder the difference between Scallopini and Piccata? Both Italian words meaning basically the same thing, “pounded flat” or “boneless seasoned cutlets” have been used in many forms throughout the culinary years. Over time the word Piccata became synonymous with a thin lemony sauce, often with capers and parsley. Very simple to make and so truly delicious, you could say this recipe is Scallopini Piccata which would make some Italians chuckle. Dinner for Two Ingredients

1 tsp capers 1 tsp chopped parsley ¼ cup “your favorite white wine” 3 tbsp water 1 fresh lemon 1.5 tbsp butter (not melted) Salt and Pepper Fresh Spinach for 2

2 boneless (6-7 oz.) Chicken Breast, Veal Medallions or Pork Tenderloin ¾ cup all-purpose flour seasoned with salt and white pepper (2/3 for dredging / 1/3 for sauce) ¼ cup Olive Oil 1 tbsp chopped shallots ½ tsp fresh garlic (optional)

Method Cut chicken breast into 2 or 3 scaloppini’s Light pound them flat with “meat mallet” or something similar, dredge in seasoned flour

Add olive oil to skillet and heat, when ripples develop in the oil add scallopini's and brown slightly on both sides Remove from oil and rest on fresh spinach leaves. Drain off ½ remaining oil, add shallots, garlic and capers to remaining oil and stir until slightly translucent. Add wine , ½ squeezed lemon and water Return scallopini to skillet, slice other ½ lemon into 2 or 3 slices and lay on top of chicken, add parsley and butter. Put skillet in 350-degree oven for 4 minutes. Pour scallopini and sauce over the fresh spinach leaves and enjoy.

MIYC Member Events By Angela Holt

In keeping with the mandates of the federal, state and local authorities, our Club closed on March 21. The events that were put on hold will eventually find their place on our new Club calendar. As we are sheltering in place, I've had lots of time to plan activities for when we are back- in-action. God willing, we will have a very upbeat summer schedule starting with an Independence Day Eve Party and Dance scheduled for July 3. Also on the Summer Schedule is Trivia, Karaoke/Dance Party, Lobsterfest, Dances under the Stars, Cooking with Chef and a Beach Party/Luau. As we open the Fall and Winter Season, there will be a Welcome Back Monster Mash held on Halloween Night. Now, you have plenty of time to start planning your costume. Or, you can just come as you are and judge the rest of us who might be unrecognizable. What keeps me going is planning ahead and keeping a positive view to the future. I'm hoping for the best year ever of events. I'm getting rested and ready to roll. We will be looking at a very special Country Western Jam Session ( plan on wearing

your cowboy hats); the elegant Commodore's Ball; the romantic Valentine's Dinner and Dance; and then to ce l ebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Marco Island Yacht Club - the First Annual Mar iner 's Gala which will be a dress-to- the-nines affair. I, for one, can’t wait to

The Holts are “Hanging in There!” Fifteen years ago as we celebrated our 10th Anniversary in Italy, we bought a Murano chandelier in Venice to commemorate the date. Well, 15 years have past and Jon finally found the time to assemble the many pieces of glass, wire it up and now ceremoniously hang it in our new home in Lesina, Hammock Bay. Happy 25th Anniversary to us!

Mariner's Fund Donations from Members make a real difference to the success of Marco Island Yacht Club. Our generous Members enable the Club to make beautiful renovations and provide extra "pop" at events. For example, the Burgee Bar renovation was made possible entirely by Member donations. The bar was expanded, new drop down window covers were installed and attractive curtains and valances were added. How Can I Donate? You can make a general donation or donate for a specific project. We have identified a number of needs and wishes, which are listed in a binder just below a recognition plaque in the lobby area. Here is a sampling of initiatives we are looking for Member donations to fund: • Landscaping around the front of the Club • Upstairs dining room chairs • Major update of upstairs dining room $ 2,500-$4,000 $40,000-$50,000 $$$ to be determined If you'd like to donate to one of these initiatives or any other project of your choice, please download the Mariner Donation Form , on which you can indicate the project you wish to support, the amount of donation and how you wish to pay (separate check, credit card or Club monthly statement.) If there is something special you would like to see happen and would like to financially support, please let any member of the Board, Bridge or Mariner's Committee know. Mariner's Fund Recognition Levels A Mariner's Fund recognition plaque in the lobby hallway honors the cumulative contributions Members have made. • Bronze

Burgees at MIYC

Have you noticed the Burgees hanging in the Burgee Bar? A private burgee, or owner's signal, is a way of expressing your own vision of the pleasure of sailing, and pride in your boat. The tradition of a unique pennant flown from the masthead goes back hundreds of years. The word "burgee" usually refers to a yacht club flag, but modern yachtsmen often use the term for any private flag. You can choose to make your own flag or hire someone to do the sewing.

Blue Moon

This burgee belongs to Jim and Linda Marr. Blue Moon is the name of their boat.

MIYC Mini Reef Program Helps Clean Our Canals We all love our Island Paradise and the beautiful waters we boat on. Doing what we can to keep our waters clean is a priority at Marco Island Yacht Club. That’s why we are promoting Ocean Habitats’ “Mini Reefs” to Members to be installed under your docks. We have three under our MIYC docks and dozens of Members are installing them, too. . Each reef establishes an ecosystem of aquatic life under the docks which mimics the environment normally found in the prop root system of mangrove trees. Once established, one reef can clean 30,000 gallons of water a day. Left: Carri and John Kendall with David Wolff.

Below: The Mini Reefs are lowered and set it place. Right: Nancy McNally with David and her new Mini Reef.

Marco Island Yacht Club Friday Golf Group Marco Island Yacht Club has a lot of members who enjoy getting out on the links. In recognition of this, we have a golf club within the yacht club! Every Friday morning a MIYC men’s golf group gets together at one of the local courses to enjoy the beautiful Florida weather and golf. This golfing opportunity has been going strong for many years, probably as long as MIYC has been a private, non-profit yacht club. In the winter and spring when we play at Hibiscus, the weekly participants swell to around 50 players on any given Friday. In the summer, when many in the group head north, some weeks we only have between 12 and 20 for play at The Glades. For those of you who have no knowledge about our Friday golf, let me tell you that it is right for everyone of us who can still swing a golf club and bend down to pick up a golf ball! It is purely for the fun of being out

together and enjoying each other’s company on a beautiful 18 holes. Additionally, every 4 -6 weeks, we have a $5.00 tournament that usually has three flights. Everyone has a good chance to win. So, please, if you are looking for some friendly golf on a Friday morning, consider joining our group. Call me at 239-970-0273 or Bob Winterhalter at 239-389-0825, for more information and to get signed up. Dick Irwin, Past Commodore

MIYC's "Sunshine Program" Please help us spread the sunshine! Let us know about big milestones such as 50th anniversaries or other special occasions or achievements. We'll share them with Members in Anchor Lines and send a card to the celebrating Members. Also let us know about any Member who is hospitalized so we can send a card to cheer them up. Meet Our Own “Mary Sunshine!”

Our contact point for this information will be Mary McKeown...our "Miss Mary Sunshine!" She's the one to tell when you know of a major event, happy or sad -- and Mary will be sure to get the word out.

Please contact her at: maryamckeown@aol.com or 847-812-8386
