    Housing, Stretch Code & Energy Efficiency with Constance Kremer, Hakim Janah & David Abel

    Housing, Stretch Code & Energy Efficiency with Constance Kremer, Hakim Janah & David Abel

    In this episode we speak about the Massachusetts stretch building code as well as energy efficiency, fossil fuel dependence, housing capacity & struggles on Cape Cod and more with Constance Kremer, Hakim Janah and David Abel.  David joins us about half way through the interview.  

    This fall at the Orleans town meeting, the expansion of the stretch code failed the town vote and I wanted to further discuss the details of why, and what the upside is to this new structure should it someday be adopted.  At town meeting Hakim gave a great speech in support of this new measure, which led to Constance and I discussing the idea of making this episode to dig deeper on this topic.  

    Constance is on the Finance Committee in Orleans and also owns Kremer & Daughters interior design.  Hakim is on the Energy & Climate committee in Orleans and was prior an engineer in a large scale industry leading energy supplier.  David Abel is also on the Finance Committee in Orleans with Constance and works in housing management/development and planning .

    This is certainly a part 1 of two or three on this topic as there is much to be discussed.  Thank you so much for listening as always!

    Homeless for the Holidays Charity Drive with the Orleans Fire Department

    Homeless for the Holidays Charity Drive with the Orleans Fire Department

    In this episode I speak with firefighters Gabby Parker and Ian Mack of the Orleans Fire Department about their charitable efforts surrounding the 2023 Homeless for the Holidays drive from December 6th through December 10th in Orleans.  They and their firefighting colleagues will be camping out for 103 hours straight to gather donations for this drive, the location will be directly next to the Red Balloon Toy Shop in Orleans, 116 Route 6A.   

    Accepted donations will be unwrapped toys, clothing, food, financial donations and more.  This year there is a greater need for teenage clothing and unwrapped toys, but all donations are greatly appreciated.  On Saturday December 9th from 9am to noon Santa will be there with the fire truck to meet local families and he'll be joined by many of our local firefights, please come out to show your support and donate if you can!  If you have questions or can't make it in person, reach out to OFD at homelessfortheholidaysofd@gmail.com.

    Bourne Fire started this charitable drive 22 years ago and has encouraged other departments, fire and police, to join their efforts.  Collectively Homeless for the Holidays has gathered over 100,000 toys, 106,000 pounds of food, over $600,000 in financial donations, and much more.  This is a great group effort from our local Fire and Police departments.  Also, if you can't support through donations this year, consider coming to support the Firefighters, say hello and share a high five, or even just share the information on social media to help boost exposure.

    Thank you to Gabby, Ian and of course Chief Geof Deering for supporting this effort.  Also thanks to Todd Thayer for donating the location for this drive. 

    Let's make this holiday season a good one for all of our friends, family and loved ones!

Mahtahc ,

Great show!!!

Just listening to this 2part pilot episode, I can tell this is going to be a great show. About 1/2 way through part 1, they start digging into comparisons between growing up gen Z vs. gen X and millennial, how technology changed and is shaping the way we approach the world and how we were (or are being raised in it). All that in relation to music and other forms of creativity, etc. Really looking forward to more episodes, and as a Cape Cod local, it’s going to be cool hearing thoughts and viewpoints from other local folks. Very cool!
