1. Goodland Holiday Bazaar coming this weekend

The Goodland Civic Association and Collier County Parks and Recreation are co-hosting the 4th annual Goodland Holiday Bazaar Nov. 16-17. Ten local musicians will play both days and there will be wonderful artisans and crafters. Food will be offered by Marker 8.5 and Moma Mack and hot dogs and chili dogs. This event is being held at the Margood Harbor Park, 321 Pear Tree Ave. and the historic museum will be open the weekend of the event. Information: (239) 734-5523.

2. Net fishing once again prohibited

Over a span of only 15 days, there has been an incredible fourth reversal of state laws regarding net fishing. Now, until further notice, fishing with certain types and sizes of nets will remain prohibited in state waters. On Nov. 5 the First District Court of Appeal granted a motion by the State Attorney General’s Office to reinstate an automatic stay on laws that pertain to the types of gear used when fishing commercially with nets. That means that the law enacted 18 years ago by 72 percent of Florida’s voters will remain in force, at least for the near future. The controversial case that started all this legal fish wrangling will be argued in appeals court on an as yet to be undetermined date.

3. RE/MAX Affinity Plus holds grand opening

A grand opening celebration was held on Friday, Nov. 8 at the company’s new office at 599 South Collier Blvd. in Marco Walk. Refreshments were served and attendees had the chance to tour the new offices and meet the agents. Information: (239) 260-3500.
