The revised ordinance took effect on April 3. Mary Hamburg, the citys public information officer who oversees the citys special events and chairs its Special Events Committee, told the News-Leader that the citys revised ordinance means that the Shrimp Festival Committee can issue overnight RV parking permits since it has a franchise agreement with the city. Shrimp festival authority. Within the public streets, sidewalks, parking and property of the city and for the annual shrimp festival only, the shrimp festival committee is granted authority to issue appropriate permits, to set appropriate fees and to assign appropriate display and vendor spaces in accordance with the procedures and schedules as established by said committee, reads Chapter 14-1 (e) of the citys municipal code. A posting on Facebook and on the website of the Fernandina Beach Babe Ruth League is advertising spaces for overnight parking for RVs in a public area at Central Park next to the ball fields for three nights for $75 during the 55th annual Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival from May 4-6. The posting says the spaces are provided by the city of Fernandina Beach and the league and indicates the spaces are for dry camping, meaning that no utilities are provided. The camping is being allowed under the special events permit held by the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival Committee. Harry Harrison, chairman of the Shrimp Festival Committee, said the committee gave that permit to the Babe Ruth League, which it can use to rent spaces to anyone attending the festival. We dont get involved with the league, Harrison told the News-Leader, explaining that the committee only rfWho doesnt know that familiar quote from the movie Forrest Gump? But dont forget about the ever-popular shrimp pie! One can find all that, and more, during the first weekend in May here in Fernandina Beach. The downtowns streets, businesses, and residents are just days away from the crowds that will gather for the 55th annual Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival on May 4-6, one of the longestrunning and well-known special events in the state of Florida. Gil Langley, CEO of the Amelia Island Convention and Visitors Bureau, said, Amelia Island has a robust calendar of events that showcase our destination and the Shrimp Festival is a cornerstone of that. With its longstanding community tradition, the festival celebrates Fernandinas shrimping heritage and commitment to local seafood, attracting visitors from far and wide. What originated in 1964 as a featured event for the islands Fiesta of 8 Flags a shrimp boat race along the Amelia River morphed into a major, regional festival celebrating the fruits of the labor of local shrimp boat owners and crews, with booths at the riverfront, along Centre Street, and on the side streets. Those booths, run by nonprofit organizations, will be selling almost every dish imaginable that can contain shrimp. These days, not only does the festival pay tribute to the birth of the modern shrimping industry in Fernandina Beach, but it is also a celebration of the arts. More than 450 artists and craftsFirst Coast YMCA, with a local facility situated on the eastern edge of the Amelia Park subdivision, has a vacant piece of property there it would like to sell to developers so it can use the proceeds for improvements, but that plan did not get any traction during a recent City Commission meeting. At the April 17 meeting of the City Commission, the YMCA requested the citys Land Development Code be changed so 4.42 acres that the organization owns on Lake Park Drive can be used for 16 additional housing sites. Original covenants for Amelia Park call for some of the property to be available for recreational use by the residents of Amelia Park as well as the surrounding community. Developers promise certain things to the community, Commissioner Chip Ross said. They come back later and those things dont happen. Originally, when this (deed restriction) was agreed to by the city, what was part of that was an open space area. I believe that when something is committed to open space, committed to recreation, that that is what it should be going to, in perpetuity, as was put in your original agreement when you sold it to the YMCA. The developers who want to buy the property, Joel Embry and Michael Antonopoulos, originally developed Amelia Park in 1998. Embry said that, since that time, the development has evolved, with each phase improving from the last. He said the latest request represents that evolution. There have been several amendments that have changed it the evolution of demand market conditions, the existing residents, etc., Embry said of the development. Its not the neighborhood it was when we started, and its not going to be the neighborhood tomorrow that it is today.

Those vehicles will have parking passes in the windows of their vehicles that display the name of the vendor, as well as contact information. Those vehicles will not be parked in the street, Harrison said, and will be monitored. The Fernandina Beach Police Department as well as a security firm contracted by the Shrimp Festival Committee will be patrolling downtown around the clock during the festival, Harrison said. We tell the city exactly what we are doing, he said. We cant have people just pop up with things going on like they are. We monitor everything. Though overnight RV and camper parking for everyone else is prohibited on city streets and parking lots, whether someone is in it or not, parking on the unblocked streets downtown is always on a first-come, firstserved basis and is always tight.

Parking in front of a public or private driveway, within 15 feet of a fire hydrant, within 20 feet of a crosswalk at an intersection, and alongside or adjacent to a curb painted yellow is also prohibited. According to flyers distributed by the Shrimp Festival Committee, The Shrimp Festival Area encompasses all public rightof-ways (sic) within the historic downtown area ... including all public parking lots. ... (T)his year, the large number of vendor and sponsor booths has led to a change in the time of the closing of streets downtown to traffic. Beginning at 1 p.m. Friday, May 4, Centre Street from Eighth Street to Front Street will be closed to all traffic except Shrimp Festival participants. North and South Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Seventh streets from Alachua to Ash streets will also be closed.

The restriction on street parking in the festival area includes vehicles owned by downtown residents, according to Festival Chairman Harry Harrison. Only pedestrian traffic will be allowed on Centre Street after 6 p.m. Friday, May 4, through the end of the festival on Sunday. The Festival Committee has designated parking at the Fernandina Branch Library parking lot for downtown retail/restaurant owners and employees, firstcome, first-served, with a special vehicle identification issued by the Shrimp Festival Committee, according to a flyer. The citys riverfront parking lots A and B will be closed from 12:01 a.m., Thursday, May 3, until midnight, Sunday, May 6. One option for those who park outside of the downtown area is a shuttle bus.

Baptist spokesperson Beth Stambaugh said, We will have opportunities for festival goers to learn more about our new medical services as well as pick up fun giveaways like sunglasses, backpacks and sunscreen. Attendees can also spin the wheel to answer health trivia questions and win additional prizes. Physicians from Baptist Nassau will be available at the booth for Talks with a Doc, to answer questions and provide information about medical services. This year, as in years past, the festival also features a lineup of well-known local and national entertainment artists. Taking the stages this year will be the former Kansas frontman John Elefante, whose hits include Dust in the Wind and Carry On My Wayward Son, Randall Hall, a former member of Lynyrd Skynyrd, the band famous for You Got That Right, Sweet Home Alabama and Freebird, and Jimmy Hall, currently with Wet Willy and formerly of the Jeff Beck Group. Affectionately referred to as, The Party Band of the South, the ever-popular The Swingin Medallions will close out the festival it has have for the past several years with two sets on Sunday, May 6. Theres a Kids Zone that historically gets rave reviews from children and parents alike as well as an antiques row show on Fifth Street that has been growing in popularity among vendors and deal seekers alike. The mission of the festival is to help area local nonprofits. To be accepted into the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival, all food booths must be organized, staffed and run by a Nassau County nonprofit organization. No commercial food vendors are allowed. The nonprofits keep 85 percent of their proceeds. While exact figures are not available, Harry Harrison, chairman of the Shrimp Festival committee, stated, many groups say the festival is the biggest fundraiser for them. The Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival became a 501(c)(6) in 1991. That is in line with what a Chamber of Commerce might be, receiving the same Internal Revenue Service exemption that a business association receives if it is not organized for profit and the net earnings do not benefit private shareholders or individuals. An important part of the 501(c)(6) status of the Shrimp FILEA young pirate participates in the annual Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival Pirate Parade. The parade this year starts at 6 p.m. on Thursday night, May 3. Immediately following the parade there will be a free Sounds on Centre concert downtown. Decades Band is scheduled to perform.Continued from 1A Continued from 1A Fest organization is its obligation to the community. Harrison is in charge of the Shrimp Festival Committees business model. Harrison was first contacted by the Shrimp Festival organizers in 2012, when he was living in Nashville, Tenn. He started as chair of the events beverage committee. After two years at that post, he became co-chair of the festival and then elected to serve at the helm in 2016. This will be his third round as the chairman of the Shrimp Festival. This year, the Shrimp Festival is made up of 45 members and countless other organizations and volunteers. Our committee members and volunteers are the backbone of the festival, Harrison is quick to point out. No one on the Shrimp Festival gets paid for all their hard work and hours, Harrison noted. The festivals greatest challenge, as Harrison sees it? The weather, which we all know no one on Earth can control, but thanks to a hard-working committee, everything else under the sun falls into place. rfntbrtrtSt. Francis of Assisi Catholic Mission at 86000 St. Francis Way in Yulee will be holding a blood drive Sunday, April 29, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. All donors will receive a free OneBlood T-shirt and a wellness checkup including blood pressure, temperature, iron count, pulse and cholesterol screening.

CITY OF FERNANDINA BEACH 204 ASH STREET FERNANDINA BEACH, FL 32034LEGAL ADVERTISEMENT While carefully selecting employees can help prevent human resources issues, your small business might still find it has hired a staff member who isnt a good fit. A number of issues may justify termination of an employee: Sub-par performance; Disruptive or abusive behavior; Repetitive tardiness; Excessive or unapproved absences; Dishonesty; Theft. In some circumstances, a warning, coaching, or amended responsibilities might correct the problem. Depending on the nature of the issue, however, you may find the best course of action is to part ways. Keeping employees on the payroll when theyre not measuring up to expectations could thwart your businesss growth, create a stressful working environment, and do permanent damage to your reputation. In most states, an employee can be fired at will at any time for any or no reason. However, there are limits and exceptions. For example, federal law prohibits employers from terminating employees for reasons of race, gender, age, religion, or a disability. Nor can you legally fire employees for complaining about illegal activities, health and safety violations, or discrimination and harassment in the workplace. Other exceptions may exist in your state as well. According to SCORE mentor and human resources expert John Wojtecki, Documentation is imperative. One must be consistent to document behavior, action, and results. Are there witnesses? Has there been a performance improvement plan developed and communicated It has been interesting to watch how much turnover there has been during the first year and four months of Donald Trumps presidency. Recruiting for key managerial positions, even in less political situations like business, is always very difficult. The issue, many times, is not capabilities, because the candidates usually possess the necessary experience and skills. Success is sometimes more dependent on an ability to fit the demands of the particular job, the new culture, and the personality and needs of the new boss. One of our roles in business was to judge executive fit. In this regard, our judgment couldnt be based solely on what we thought would work: It had to based on what the person doing the hiring needed and the culture of the company the new hire was enter ing. When we started a recruiting assign ment, we had the company take us through the traits the executive must possess to be successful. Not surprisingly, most compa nies would list very similar traits, especially for high-level executive positions. In a leader they wanted someone who had a successful track record with similar work experiences. For example, a marketing executive from a large consumer products company possesses very different experiences and skills than a marketing executive from an industrial company. They wanted the leader to be strategic, with strong analytical and conceptual skills someone able to think outside the box. Someone results-oriented, decisive, with a bottom line, and customer focus. They also wanted the best candidate to be able to motivate the team, build trust, and of course possess emotional intelligence. The problem is that very few executives possess all of these traits, and whoever is making the final decision has to decide which traits are most important in their particular situation. And these traits often conflict. For example, highly results-oriented, driven individuals are more comfortable making decisions than being patient and strategic. In addition, the person in charge, like anyone else, needs to feel comfortable with the individual he or she is recruiting. While recruiting a president for a major confectionary company, we selected a can didate whom I felt was both right for the job and a good fit. The group vice president was ready to make the offer, but she wanted the CEO to sign off on the candidate, as she didnt want to be second-guessed later. The CEO didnt think it was necessary, but I suggested it was too important a hire for him not to at least interview the candidate. So I took the candidate to the CEOs office and he suggested I sit in. I introduced the candidate, and the CEO then spent the next 45 minutes explaining the company, how it operated and what the candidate would need to accomplish to be successful. The candidate never interrupted, and at the end of the interview thanked the CEO for giving him so much information. I was unsure how things went until I got back to my office and listened to my voice mail. The CEO was thrilled with the candidate, whom he felt would really fit in, as he was obviously very bright, very perceptive, and such a good listener. Interestingly, the CEO turned out to be right, but it was a new experience for me. In fact, a few CEOs we worked with, after some bad experiences, would not go outside to find a candidate. Instead, they settled regarding skills and experience, and promoted someone from within or from their past, someone they knew was loyal and would fit the culture. One of the problems President Donald Trump had, coming from outside politics, was selecting the best candidates for his cabinet positions. He has probably fired more of his top people in his first year as president than he did in his last 10 years as head of his firm. This should not be surpris ing in that he has not only taken on a role quite different than anything he did in the past, but most of his hires were based on others recommendations and likes rather than his own. It will be interesting whether his second round of hires will be a better fit for him since he is now bringing in people he knows and whom he believes are loyal to him. Whether that is best for the country is a more difficult question. Amelia Island resident Howard Pines has more than 30 years experience as CEO, chair man and founder of BeamPines, a premier firm in the executive coaching business. He also co-founded the BeamPines/Middlesex University Masters Program in Executive Coaching. Prior to that, he served as senior VP of human resources for a Fortune 100 corporation. He is the author of The Case for Wasting Time and Other Management Heresies.rfrntbrrrr to the employee? Make sure to have the employee sign that the plan has been communicated. It is always good to review with an attorney prior to the termination. If you believe you need and have legal grounds to fire an employee, document your reasons, all incidents that demonstrate them, and disciplinary measures (if any) prior to the termination. Having this information on record will give the employee an understanding of your decision, and it can help protect you against any claims of discrimination. Plan to break the difficult news to the employee in a private setting with a witness present to observe the conversation. If you have concerns about the employee becoming violent, consider having security personnel nearby. In breaking the news to the employee, one should be straight and to the point, suggests Wojtecki. There should always be a witness to the discussion. Upon termination, the employee should be escorted to their workstation to collect their possessions, and escorted to the exit. Either during the meeting or in follow-up to it, you are required to inform the employee of eligibility for unemployment and any applicable optional continuation of benefits (such as health insurance). Also address any entitlement to accrued vacation pay or sick leave, outstanding commissions and bonuses, and not-yet-reimbursed company expenses. Because of the potential legal ramifications when terminating an employee, make sure you do your research and consider consulting a human resources professional or attorney who can guide you. Also consider reaching out to your local SCORE chapter to talk with a mentor who can offer input, feedback, and guide you to knowledgeable resources within your community. Since 1964, SCORE Mentors to Americas Small Business has helped more than 10 million aspiring entrepreneurs and small business owners through mentoring and business workshops.

working in this years event. In partnership with 12 Nassau County Girl Scout troops, NCVC collected over 600 pounds of peanut butter and jelly during its 18th annual Peanut Butter and Jelly Drive enough to make more than 2,700 sandwiches. The supplies collected were donated to the Barnabas Center, Head Start Centers of Nassau County, the Nassau County Council on Aging and the Salvation Army Hope House. Over the last 17 years, more than 11,900 pounds of peanut butter and jelly have been collected by NCVC and donated to food pantries. NCVC netted $26,351 at the 25th annual Taste of Amelia Island, held at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort. More than 300 families were served by NCVCs 27th annual Adopt-A-Family Wishlist Program. That included 750 individuals and 45 seniors. Over 2,000 volunteers with 35 donor groups served those families, which included Big Brothers and Big Sisters children and homeless clients of the Salvation Army Hope House. NCVC also partnered with the Lions Club to collect used eyeglasses for the needy in partnership with west Nassau County and Jacksonville churches and agencies to serve the homeless population and those in crisis in Callahan to find three families housing. Poole said NCVC hopes to find nonprofits to take over all the programs that have not come under the umbrella of Barnabas. We are doing the best we can to make sure those programs live the Planned Unit Development. If we had not intended for it to be an evolutionary process, we wouldnt have done the PUD. Representing First Coast YMCA at the meeting, John Dearolf said that the property is an unused asset and that selling it would allow his organization to invest money into its facilities. We found that this is an underperforming asset for us, and this gave us an opportunity to monetize that asset, Dearolf said. Also, 1998 was the last major renovation on our facility. Our Y is growing exponentially. Our island is growing rapidly as well. Weve identified that our demographic is changing as well. Half our members are over the age of 55. Over the last five years, we have gained over 1,000 members as a result, thus calling upon us to do some much needed expansion so we can continue to serve the community. This is an opportunity for us to be able to reinvest back into the facility. Dearolf said the organization had planned to use the property to bring athletic activities to the neighborhood, but, since the citys Parks & Recreation Department has successful programs, the YMCA could not recruit enough young people to support the programs. The YMCAs intent was they wanted to use it as a playing field, Embry said. They are not abandoning a need thats been demonstrated. They are abandoning an effort that was unsuccessful. The YMCA committed to build some very nice facilities, which they did, and went above what we ever expected, but on the other hand the discovery that the city had so many excellent programs for recreation led the Y to a decision after several false starts to try to build some programs that this was not going to happen. The demand for it was not there. That has led to the property being fallow, basically, except for some slight passive uses that occur from time to time, and, unfortunately, some uses we dont desire going on, on that property today. This has led to the proposal by the YMCA, the applicant, to sell the property and use the proceeds for other uses. Vice Mayor Len Kreger referred to a comment made by Embry during a meeting he had with Embry in which Embry said the city had enough parks. Embry said he did not mean to imply that the city had enough parks, but that the Parks & Recreation Departments programs are answering the recreational needs. Kreger said he believes the YMCA did not pursue the development of additional recreation opportunities for the entire community. It doesnt look like there was any real effort, to me, to develop those or to work with Parks and Rec and see whats going on, Kreger said. It is rezoning to sell houses. What were getting now is lots of rezoning, people buying property to build houses. At some point, Im concerned that that is not in the best interest of the city. The recreational thing is an issue, but that will be the bottom line. Ross also mentioned a prior meeting in which Embry told him that, if the sale of the property by the YMCA to him and his partner does not go through, development on the property could include things considered obnoxious by current residents. Thats always been a concern of ours, Embry said. When we made a commitment to sell the land to the Y, that play field had the potential of being obnoxious to the neighborhood nearby with the involvement of more people, traffic, stands, etc. All that comes with the kind of competitive kind of things that could happen there. He said the property is money in the bank for the YMCA, and that, if the Y is denied the opportunity to sell it for residential use, they dont have but one other alternative, and thats to figure out how to use this for recreation. The uses, the potential uses, could be much more intense than we would like to have there. Ross also referenced another comment Embry made in his opening statement requesting the change to the LDC when he said the property has homeless folks that have encamped on it in a very consistent manner. Ross said that in the meeting he had with Embry prior to the City Commission meeting, he had also referred to homeless people on the property. I kind of feel like youre saying that your solution to homeless people is to put in expensive housing and I kind of find that I was offended the other day. I wasnt going to bring it up, until you brought it up, Ross said. Embry apologized for offending Ross but said that people in the neighborhood had expressed that concern to him and that those residents are his priority. (I have) heard complaints from the residents about being afraid of the people who they encounter in the woods, Embry said. That is what drives my concern, how the neighbors feel about it. I dont mean it in any pejorative way. I dont think we are out of order by thinking that dealing more directly with the homeless and using that land for other purposes other than leaving it fallow and allowing it to continue is a good practice. I dont think putting in expensive houses is a good way of dealing with homeless people, Ross said. They are good people. They live here too. Some Amelia Park residents spoke, both for and against building more houses. Attorney Teresa Prince said that she represented the Amelia Park Homeowners Association board and that the body gave the zoning change its full support. Robert Duffy expressed concerns that proceeds of the sale of the property by the YMCA would not go to the Fernandina Beach facility, but rather to Jacksonville YMCAs, and that the current developers would be the ones controlling the development. He said another developer might build townhouses or condominiums. Duffy added that the open space is seldom used for recreational use, other than dog walking and golfing practice. While not disapproving of the change, Robert Buckley said, The development would be less preferable than open space. Buckley said he has tried to speak with the YMCA about the neighborhood buying the property, but the Y did not respond to his inquiries. Thomas Washburn said he had located on Amelia Island because of the green spaces on the island, and Amelia Park because it is a traditional development. He said he wants the green space to stay. After more than an hour of discussion, Commissioner Roy Smith made a motion to approve the request. That motion died for lack of a second. 904-321-2430www.horizonsameliaisland.comDinner: Tues.-Sat. 5pm-9pm Lunch: Tues.-Sat. 11pm-3pm Park Place 5472 First Coast HighwayLes DeMerle TrioApril 27th and 28th BUY ONE GET ONE50%OFFLUNCH OR DINNERCannot be used with special menu, or events or other discount offers.

Making the announcement after the organization awarded volunteers for their efforts, NCVC board member Kris Meyer said the organization cannot continue to operate as a separate nonprofit entity over time. Meyer said the organization determined it needed to change in order for the services we provide to the community to be sustainable and on a sound financial footing. Harrison Poole, acting president of the NCVC board, said he has served on the board since 2010 and is proud of what the centers volunteers have contributed to the community. Its bittersweet, Poole said. I am proud of what we have accomplished, but it is very competitive for nonprofits right now. He gave an example of the Adopt-A-Family program, which helps provide families in need with food during the holiday season. Without those volunteers, they might not have had food for Christmas, Poole said. Im very glad that the results of our efforts remain here in Nassau County. The NCVC recruits volunteers and matches them with organizations where they donate thousands of hours to community nonprofits each year, according to the organizations literature. The group began in 1985 with 25 volunteers from the First Presbyterian Church of Fernandina Beach, according to the NCVC website, and grew to more than 3,000 volunteers who provided services to 35 nonprofits by 2017. Several of the centers programs will be taken over by the Barnabas Center, a local nonprofit crisis center. Those programs include the Peanut Butter and Jelly Drive, which provides food security for school-age children, the GOKIDS Drive, which provides schools supplies to low-income students in Nassau County, and the Adopt-A-Family Wishlist Program, which contributes to families in need during the holiday season. In a statement, the NCVC shared some of the highlights of its services. According to NCVC, from July 2016 through June 2017, the organization raised over $12,000 worth of school supplies during the 16th annual GOKIDS School Supply Drive for students in all 16 Nassau County schools. Over the past decade, $172,000 worth of school supplies have been donated, with 250 volunteers rfntfnbJULIA ROBERTS/NEWS-LEADERAt its recent annual volunteer awards luncheon, the Nassau County Volunteer Center honored the people recognized as a Volunteer of the Year by each organization or company listed: Front row, Loretta Rhette Angus, city of Fernandina Beach; Coleen Bellar, Amelia Island/Nassau County Association of Realtors; and Martha Robinson, Rayonier Advanced Materials.

After three weeks of living in opioid hell of constantly being sick to my stomach, of throwing up, of having the shakes and feeling depressed and crying my body and brain are back to normal. Im no longer high and messed up on painkillers. Im no longer trying to withdraw from them. And I have a new, up-closeand-personal understanding of the countrys opioid epidemic and how easy it is for a 70-something guy like me to become addicted to potent pain pills. My opioid nightmare started on March 13 when I had my left knee replaced. The surgery went fine, but with knee replacement all the pain comes during recovery. When I was released from the hospital on March 15 my doctor wrote me a prescription for oxycodone. Fifty pills. Two every four hours at first, then one every 12 hours. Hello opioid addiction. For the first 10 days and 30 oxycodones, I was pain-free but a complete mess. I was often nauseous. I threw up now and then. I tried to do my knee exercises as I sat in my recliner chair and watched The Voice and whatever else was on. I dont really remember much else from those first 10 days, except for feeling sick and occasionally throwing up, but my wife told me my whole personality changed. I was angry. I was sad and depressed. The pressure I was putting on my family to take care of me made me start crying. On Sunday, March 25, my wife took my opioids away, but I took pill No. 30 against her will. On Monday morning I got up, felt nauseous and threw up. I threw up every day after that for 10 days, but the third day of my withdrawal was the worst. I felt like I had been hit by an earthquake. I had the shakes all day. When I went to have my surgery staples removed, the knee doctor took one look at me and sent me straight to my heart doctor. The heart doctor took one look at me, ran an ultra-sound on my heart and sent me back to the ER for blood tests. At the ER, I threw up. I sat in the ER for several hours, then went home and got lots of fluids. I was shaking so much I couldnt hold my hand steady or sign my name. Today April 5 I can say Im finally recovering from addiction. Yesterday was the first day since March 15 that I woke up and didnt feel like I was going to be sick. For the last week I havent thrown up once. Last night was the first time I thought I could safely go out to dinner and order food. My wife Colleen and I split a dinner. The worst for me is over and Ive learned some lessons the hard way. I now understand how powerful and dangerous opioids are. And how important it is to have a loving family at home to take care of you when youre taking them or trying to get off them. During the last few days, Ive run into several other guys who had their knees replaced. What they said made me feel kind of stupid. One guy said he never touched oxycodone. He took Tylenol 3, which has codeine but is less potent. When I ran into George Thomas, the retired foreman of my fathers ranch, he told me he had had both of his knees replaced. When I told him I was still recovering from opiates, he said, I didnt take anything. OK, well. Im not as tough as old George. I know opioids are valuable weapons against pain, and that before they were over-prescribed to help create the current crisis, they were often under-prescribed. But if I have to have my other knee replaced, Im going to take Tylenol 3 and keep the oxycodone in the box. Copyright 2018 Michael Reagan.

A couple of days later, a progressive friend who wanted to warn me about a hateful tweet aimed at a Muslim lobbying day at the Pennsylvania Capitol jokingly observed that she tried to keep her feed a happy bubble of the like-minded but this one had slipped through. These two incidents speak volumes about where we are as a country these days. Were deeply entrenched in our own worldviews, taking comfort among those who agree with us, and peering cautiously over the battlements at those who believe differently from ourselves. The schism is years in the making. But it feels more pronounced now in a time where bias confirmation is king, and whole communities of the like-minded (on the left and right) are no further than a click away. An October 2017 Pew poll found fewer Americans, in the time of peak Trump, harbor a mix of conservative and liberal viewpoints than they did during the Bush era in 2004. Overall, not quite a third of Americans (32 percent) now take a roughly equal number of conservative and liberal positions. Thats down from 38 percent in 2015 and off the cliff from the 49 percent who did in 1994 and 2004, Pew pollsters found. Reflecting growing partisan gaps across most of the individual questions in the scale even those where both parties have shifted in the same direction, Pew pollsters concluded. Republicans and Democrats are now further apart ideologically than at any point in more than two decades. Ive written at length about the breakdown in our culture when it comes to agreement on the basic facts that underlie our political debates and the corrosive effect that social media has on our shared dialogue. And now that we know that foreign agents were actively working to inject misinformation into the 2016 campaign, maybe that breakdown is more easily explained though its no less unsettling. Still, in the five-plus years since I made the jump from being a political beat reporter to an opinion columnist and editorial writer, Ive been struck by this notion, harbored by some (on the left and right alike) that its no longer enough to merely disagree with someone; you have to hate them as well. The premise that I hate conservatives is laughable on its face. And though it feels ridiculous to even have to say it aloud, Ill say it anyway: No, I dont hate conservatives. I disagree with them. Thats because hating someone requires you to actually know them. And I have too many friends from across the spectrum for that ever to be the case. Yes, my conservative friends and I disagree on matters of policy. And, yes, we debate those policy points vigorously. But were just as likely to kick back on our bar stools and talk about shared interests in film, music, books, baseball and, oh yeah, our children and families. One of the great perks of my job as an opinion page editor is that I get to read and publish some of the best opinion journalism from all across the political spectrum. Sometimes, the stances taken by the writers I publish drive me absolutely batty. Sometimes, they make smile or move me. But I always come away having learned something new, my horizons expanded. Yet, here we are, with some of us claiming that we hate people weve never met simply because we disagree on politics, which, as has been observed time and again, isnt for the faint of heart. Disagreements about politics have been with us since Pericles. Still, they can be healthy because the right kind of disagreement results in the kind of compromise that makes for good policy and law. The my way or the highway that colors our politics right now isnt the way forward. The encouraging thing is that potential solution actual knowledge lies no further away than the newsstand, your public library, laptop or your mobile phone. All you have to do is reach out for it and make an honest effort to engage in ideas different from your own. Its no further away than an earnest conversation with someone who disagrees with you. It requires you to actually listen, but the hard work is worth it. Its always worth it. Copyright 2018 John L. Micek, distributed by Cagle Cartoons newspaper syndicate.

After lunch, I went to my car to leave, and my car didnt start. All the good people at Chick-fil-A and a young security man from Walmart tried to start it. After many unsuccessful tries, I called the Paul Clark car company. They got my car going again. We are lucky to have two such fine businesses, and Id like to thank them for the wonderful help they gave to me. Jo Mauldin YuleebrbfThe Board of Cummer Amelia, the Nassau County affinity group that supports the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens in Jacksonville, would like to thank the many guests, sponsors, and volunteers who made our fourth annual Garden Walk such a big success. The event allowed us to reach the financial goal we needed to send all third and fourth graders in Nassau County public and private schools to the Museum for a day of art education which supports and enriches their school curriculum. We would especially like to thank Donald Stamets and the staff of the Omni Amelia Island Plantation; Danny Leeper, Peggy Harris, and the staff of Amelia Island Plantation Real Estate; The Amelia Island Plantation Community Association, with special thanks to Alan Barker and his security team. The people who made our event possible were the four generous homeowners who allowed over 300 people to walk through their beautiful yards: Deb and Frank Adams, Janice Bratches, Paula and Bronson Lamb, and Amy and Doug Wilsterman. Adding to the enjoyment of the afternoon were over 50 volun teer docents, parking attendants, and transportation directors. A team of UF/IFAS Nassau County Master Gardeners, includ ing DeeDee McGraw, Dee Hester, Shirley Lohman, Sandy Barron, and Carol Ann Atwood, were on hand at each home to answer questions. Special speakers Becky Jordi, Aimee Underwood, and Candace Bridgewater gave informative gar den chats. Ashlee Davis and her talented students entertained with their violin and cello music. Jean Middleton and Trisha Norton provided a display and answered questions about the Amelia Island Plantation Bluebird Trail. Demonstrating artists at each home included Andrea Mateer, Pam Vieser, David Freilich, Charli Leniston, Lis Krawiecki, Ed Mosher, Holly Gifford, and Kathy Miller. A new feature of our event this year was a Garden Market with vendors selling plants and garden accessories. The vendors were Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens, Ever Blooming, Liberty Landscape and Nursery, Island Flower and Garden, McCrorys Sunny Hill Nursery, Happy Plants and Pots, Coastal Cottage, University of Florida Books, Pink Flamingo, and Love Chic Jewelry. We are very grateful for our community sponsors who supported our event: Key Fitness, Benjamin Diller, DDS, Spray Foam Insulation Technology, Quality Health, Amelias Fine Jewelry, Mine Hill Trading Company, Artistic Florist, Color It Green, Red Otter, The Plantation Shop, Monkey Barrel, Fern and Dinas, Cafe Karibo, Corbins Automotive, Crawford Jewelers, Gage Tree Care, Cape House Home and Hospitality, Island Flower and Garden, Amelia Island Coffee, Story and Song, Julia Hall Interiors, Harris Teeter, Shoe Visions, Ciao Italian Bistro, Serendipity, Pelindaba Lavender, Art on Centre, Claudia Watts of Coldwell Banker, 2nd Story Gallery and Studios, Bar Zin Bistro and Wine Bar, The Book Loft, Ace Hardware, Nana Teresas Bake Shop, Plantation Art Gallery, Coastal Cottage, New York Nails and Spa, Evelyne Talman, and Amelia Styling Salon.

Our more than 1.2 million members have united to tackle some of humanitys most difficult problems, chal lenges that could only be met by hard work, dedication, and a desire to improve the human condition, regardless of who, where, or at what cost. Rotarians have led the fight in the eradication of polio with over 2.5 bil lion children immunized through their efforts. Globally in 2017, we have dedi cated over 16 million hours toward the key Rotary principles of promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water and sanitation, saving mothers and children, supporting education, and growing local economies. Locally, the Rotary Club of Fernandina Beach has worked tirelessly to advance awareness and provide relief and solutions to each of these six key causes. Our members also dedicate time, talent, and treasure to other community service groups like the Council on Aging, the Volunteer Center, Boys and Girls Club, St. Marys Riverkeeper, and Micahs Place, just to name a few. The Rotary Club of Fernandina Beach has also taken the initiative on several global projects, helping to provide clean water and sanitation to several towns in Central and South America, and in Indonesia. We have welcomed foreign exchange students to our community from Belgium, South Korea, Croatia, and Bolivia, and are currently are host ing a wonderful young man from Finland. We hosted renowned pianist Francesco Attesti, who played an amazing concert at St. Peters, with all proceeds donated to the McArthur YMCAs child safety around water program. Our World Polio Day barbecue, hosted by Amy Petroy and the Patio Place Bistro, helped us raise over $7,500 for Polio Plus, Rotarys global polio immunization program. Those funds were matched 3-to-1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and might be the dollars that end forever a disease that has killed and crippled mil lions. However, the two core principles of Rotary that the Fernandina Beach Club has truly embraced are education and growing local economies. The Rotary Club of Fernandina Beach has been in existence for 93 years and chartered the FBHS Interact Club over 50 years ago. That club of 30 students is currently led by teacher Dawn Karpels, who has long been dedicated to instilling and nurtur ing the next generation of community servants. This year, we expanded the reach of Rotary across the bridge and into Yulee High School, with history teacher George Lavino chartering an Interact club of 35 students. Rotarians are inclined to serve, but we also have a knack for inspiring others to help out. The Rotary Club of Fernandina Beach has a long his tory of fundraising to provide scholarship assistance for Nassau County high school graduates, with over $380,000 awarded over the past 27 years. This year alone, we raised $36,000 in donations from members and community partners. Upon graduation, we will be provide 13 scholarships to students from all four Nassau County high schools in amounts up to $5,000. These exceptional young men and women are awarded scholar ships based upon academic achieve ment, civic involvement, demonstrable need, and completion of a challenging interview before a panel of community leaders. Part of that interview process included queries about what the student was going to do after college. Many of this years winners indicated that they were planning on returning to the area, to make Nassau County a better place, bringing their skills home and enrich ing the local workforce. Better educated, service minded students become the catalyst for growing the local economy. It is incredibly important to recog nize the hard work that both the Amelia Sunrise Club and the Rotary Club of Fernandina Beach contribute to our com munity. There are over 100 Rotarians between both clubs working every day to make the world a better place. Come join us. Make a difference.

Micro-greens are flavor and nutrient dense. We started growing them and adding them to our own diet, added his wife, Darlene. It started out as his hobby and went from there. Schaffer established Fresh Greens Micro-Greens as a business operated from his home greenhouse in October 2017. He now supplies 12 local restaurants and just started offering micro-greens directly to consumers in late March at the farmers market in Fernandina Beach. Favored by chefs since the 1980s, there are now 25 varieties of micro-greens cultivated. Of those grown by Schaffer, customer favorites are peas, sunflowers, and purple radishes. Those tend to be the big three because they have the most robust flavor, said Schaffer. He also grows seedlings of cabbage, arugula, broccoli and watercress. Micro-greens can be used in salads, on sandwiches, as garnishes for soups and other dishes, and in juices and smoothies. My wife is a gourmet cook, said Schaffer. She is always finding new ways to use them. Among incentives to grow and consume micro-greens is that the tiny seedlings tend to be loaded with nutrients. Although content varies with the type of plant, micro-greens overall are estimated to have four to five times the vitamins and other nutrients as leaves of adult plants. Secondly, they can also be loaded with flavor. Just what are micro-greens? Basically they are seedlings of edible vegetable and herb plants harvested after the first leaves begin to show, one to two weeks after germination. Micro-greens are the stage between a sprout and a baby plant. Baby greens are simply those picked before a plant reaches maturity. A sprout is a germinated seed harvested after only three to five days of growth consisting mainly of the root stem before leaves have developed. Micro-greens are favored for consumption over sprouts because the latter are grown in dark, humid environments making them more prone to contamination by bacteria like salmonella and E. coli. The growing of sprouts is, therefore, subject to regulation by the Federal Department of Agriculture. Micro-greens need no such regulation because they are germinated in soil and grown in air and light. Since microgreens do not mature long enough to require fertilizers or other chemicals, they are easy to raise organically. That is really important to me. I use organic soil, non-GMO seeds and filtered water, Schaffer pointed out. Turning his hobby into a business has complicated life somewhat. The delicate seedlings need daily attention and there is constant turnover in the product. Once a seedling starts to add more leaves, it tends to become bitter to the taste. I just throw them in the compost and start over. He admits he hasnt been free to travel much since getting serious about the business. Schaffer is aware of large corporate micro-greens operations in California and the northeast where everything is automated in large greenhouses and tons of greens are produced, but he has no interest in that. Since his existing greenhouse received wind damage and he lost plants this spring to a freeze, Schaffers ambition is to replace the structure with a new one that has an automated water system. He also wants his new greenhouse to be air temperature-controlled. I dont make a lot of money at this, he admitted. Its something to do in retirement, but I do enjoy it. Originally from South Florida, the Schaffers previously ran a KOA campground in Kingsland, Ga., before retiring to Yulee in 2005. I like it here because it reminds me of how South Florida used to be when I was growing up, said Darlene.rfntbftfttb Logan Schaffer just started his microgreens business in October 2017. He now supplies 12 local restaurants and has just begun selling directly to consumers on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month at the market in Fernandina Beach. Logan and Darlene Schaffer of Fresh Greens Micro-Greens, Yulee, are newcomers to the Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market. On their first two visits they sold out of radish, sunflower, peas, cabbage, and broccoli micro-greens used to add flavor or eye appeal to salads, sandwiches and other dishes. The farmers market is held downtown on Saturdays.PHOTOS BY PAMELA BUSHNELL NEWS-LEADER NL 6 col. Wed. 04.25.indd 8 4/24/18 2:16 PM

The News-Leader published these comments about her experience: Seniors vs. Crime. I dont know if people are aware of how helpful Seniors vs. Crime are. I had a problem and I was at my wits end trying to solve it on my own. The company I had dealt with just gave me the run around. They wouldnt return my money, so I got in touch with Seniors vs. Crime here in Fernandina. Barry (one of the volunteers) started calling the store, the manager, and anybody he could think of he wouldnt let go! If it wasnt for him, I would not have gotten my money back until?... I just want people to be aware of their good work and also to thank them. Now, you as readers should be made aware of what this statewide organization, Seniors vs. Crime, does to help you avoid fraud or resolve your civil issues. We write articles for publications and make presentations to groups interested in hearing how to avoid scams, fraud, and other civil issues. We listen to your complaints about how you were cheated, work on your complaint, and return about $2 million a year to people throughout Florida: $10 here, $50 there, $1,000 over there it all adds up to money back in your pocket. At the Fernandina Beach office, we look for Nassau citizens who need our help. Please call us or stop by our office and we will try to help you. There is no fee for our services, and we will make every effort to help you resolve your issues. You can contact the local office, or you can make an online complaint at our website: seniorsvscrime.com.

Its that time of year again. Time to get out in the garden. Last year, as some of you readers might recall, my spring gardening didnt turn out that well. Last spring, I finally convinced Bucko to have a fence and gate put in to isolate my veggie garden from the rabbits that, in previous years, ate up all my bean sprouts as soon as they sprouted. They ate almost everything else too, despite the attempts we made over the years, like installing wire mesh rabbit proof fencing, which they happily hopped through, and livetrapping and removing some rabbits. Others always came back. Last year, with a wooden fence in place, I was eager to get to work establishing a garden again. But there was a hitch: I had a dream of a trellis on the fence full of native honeysuckles to form a backdrop for the rest of my butterfly garden. I dutifully yanked out all the other vines that had grown up in the area, a days worth of work carrying armloads of vines off into the wood in preparation for planting the five new honeysuckle plants. Then disaster struck. Those vines I laboriously removed? Virginia creepers. And, unbeknownst to me then, I had developed an allergy to those plants. The next day, before I even attempted to plant anything, a poison ivy-type rash broke out on my arms, chest, and legs a horrible itchy, weepy mess that took me to the doctors office three times before it was resolved. That was it for my gardening last year. Bucko planted the honeysuckle for me, but the back veggie garden, even with the new hopefully rabbit-proof fence, remained unplanted. I just couldnt face the garden again, for weeks. But its another year now and a fresh start. This time, Bucko dutifully cleared out the Virginia creeper that had grown back. Out of the five honeysuckles planted last year, at least three survived, and they are now climbing up on the trellis. Great! But alas, it seems that Bucko is now a bit allergic to Virginia creeper too. His rash wasnt as bad as mine last year, but still unpleasant. Now weve both teamed up to get our spring garden in shape at last. We carted bags of amendments for the vegetable beds. I dug it into the soil and planted one whole bed of three different varieties of beans. I planted another bed of basil for my pesto making and lots of zinnias for cut flowers. Fingers crossed now, we are on high alert for rabbits. The beans havent yet sprouted and time will tell if this new wooden fence does the trick. Together we pruned the bottlebrush, pineapple guava and Virginia sweetspire shrubs, and I saved some of the cuttings to fill a vase in the house. I spent a few days at various nurseries collecting more butterfly-attracting plants to replace those in pots that didnt survive through the winter. My butterfly garden is a hybrid of sorts. Instead of battling the weeds, I let some like the Spanish needle, the reseeded milkweeds, and some of the spiderwort flowers live in this area, in and among the pots with better soil and more elaborate plants. Its looking good. I also spent more time repotting all my herbs and arranging a tower of potted vegetables and herbs for a decorative kitchen garden. Even Bucko this year got into the mood. His favorite gardening tools have always been chainsaws, pruners, and Roundup. Where I see things happily growing, he sees things that need to be managed. But this year marked a big difference for him. He read an article about sunflowers and decided that he, too, would actually plant some seeds. Hes never done this before, as far as I know. But now for him, spring is finally a world of hope. He has his packet of seeds planted here and there around the garden, expecting, no doubt, lots of giant sunflowers around our world. Well, heres hoping, Bucko. Each year my own seed planting efforts yield some results, but not nearly as many as the seeds I put into the ground. Hes got the sprinklers set to water deeply and often, and well see. Stay tuned to hear how things work out for us this year. Wish us luck... Pat Foster-Turley is a zoologist on Amelia Island.

oo T A rfn Nw tL bbo Fernandina Beach and Yulee high schools baseball teams squared off last week in district action. The FBHS Pirates hosted the Yulee Hornets Thursday; Yulee was the host Friday. Yulee beat its hosts 9-1 on Thursday. Nick Love threw a complete game one-hitter. He did a good job on the mound without his best stuff, YHS Coach Fred Matricardi said. Offensively, Jensen Peters had a big two-out, tworun single to get us going. Braxton Wall and Josh Bedell had two-RBI hits to break it open in the eight-run third inning; Austin LaFavor and Tyler Green each drove in a run. We didnt play a very good game, but the boys never quit, FBHS Coach Jon Shave said. Their pitcher did a great job of pounding the zone with all his pitches, and their defense made all the plays. The Pirates avenged the loss on Friday, beating the host Hornets 14-3. Gabe Mathews came in in relief and completely changed the momentum of the game, and our offense finally got going, Shave said. We had 13 hits and managed to take advantage of some of their mistakes. Caleb McCormick took the loss on the mound. He had good stuff but walked a few guys, and we made a few errors, Matricardi said. Give Fernandina credit. SUBMITTED PHOTOSThe second race of the season for the Amelia Island Sailing Club was held on April 14. Four club member boats competed in the race on a course in the St. Marys River and Cumberland Sound. Capt. Glen Stettler was the skipper aboard Sea Esta, a Cape Dory 30 sailboat that was declared winner of the event. Wind and sea conditions provided a challeng ing afternoon run on the 10-nautical mile course. Left, Sea Esta on the left, skippered by Stettler, and Misty, on the right skippered by Wilby Whitt, were side by side traveling south in Cumberland Sound at the beginning of the race. Center, two vessels race around a 10-mile course set on the St. Marys River Darby, skippered by Ed Spang, and Wayward Wind, skippered by Larry Murphy. Right, the gusty winds and choppy seas provided challenging conditions for the participants. The Amelia Island Sailing Club holds races monthly throughout most of the year. The club also sponsors various other boating and social activities and meets the first Tuesday of each month at the Kraft Athletic Club on Buccaneer Trail.

rf Late April and the entire month of May offer some of the best sea trout fishing of the year, especially for sea trout weighing over the five-pound mark. Large sea trout are often referred to as gator trout, and large female sea trout will be preparing to spawn while aggressively feeding on shrimp and baitfish before spawning. My personal preference in catching big spring sea trout is working a slow sinking or shallow running minnow-type plug where shallow shorelines drop off into a nearby deep channel. One of the better places to hook up to giant spring trout is the Amelia River, where numerous deep channels run close to dock pilings, oysterbars and rough shorelines. Both the Rayonier and WestRock paper mills offer ideal habitat for catching large specks; a deep channel runs close to rockand dock-laden shorelines. Speck fishermen position their saltwater skiff just offshore of the shallow water drop while working hard plastic plugs, live shrimp, finger mullet or large bullhead minnows. Key to catching the sea trout of a lifetime is to work the plug or live bait slowly from the shallow edge of the structure out into the nearby deep channel. Look for areas where numerous schools of mullet are working the shallow edges of the deep drop. Successfully working suspending hard baits in the chartreuse color pattern from the shallow edge of the creek into the deep channel is a deadly speck fishing tactic. Live baits include finger mullet or live shrimp barbed to a 1/4-ounce led head jig is also a deadly deep creek speck fishing tactic. Live finger mullet are barbed right through the bottom of the mouth and out through the top of the head, while live shrimp are barbed just in front of the tail and out through the top of tail. Live baits are also cast to the shallow edge of the deep creek and worked slowly into the deeper portion of the tidal creek. Key fishing gear includes a six-and-a-half-foot spinning rod with a light tip action and a medium butt action. The light tip action affords for long casts; also, when fighting a large sea trout, the light rod tip helps hold the hooks in the soft mouth of a large sea trout. The spinning reel should be filled with 15-pound braided fishing line with a three-foot section of 10-pound fluorocarbon shock leader. I recommend a very light drag so your hooked sea trout will be able to make short runs without the hook or hooks ripping free from their soft mouth. If you plan on releasing your sea trout, the best method is to use a landing net, wet your hands take a photo and release your big speck. Avoid putting your fingers in the gills of the sea trout. Current Florida sea trout regulations allow fishermen to keep five sea trout per day measuring at least 15 inches with one of their bag limits measuring 20 inches or more. Visit www.myfwc.com.

We are spoiled most days. Sunny days are just part of living in Florida. Not all days at the beach are full of sun and bright blue skies. Sometimes rainy days force a change in routine and can offer surprising rewards. Rainy days at our house are an opportunity to get inside jobs done. So a rain day means we cannot put off a garage clean up. The garage seems to be the place in our house where stuff accumulates the fastest. When clearing things out of the house, where do those things go? The garage. When unloading the car after shopping, where do some of our purchases go? The garage. Another chore that is often a rainy day project is dog washing. When I get out the shampoo and lay out towels in the kitchen, Flossie and Kate know whats coming. One at a time they are lifted into the sink for a lathering up and a rinse. Big Guy stands ready with a fluffy towel to dry the squirming dog, then the hairdryer. Surprisingly both girls seem to like the warm air and getting dry fast. Some rainy days we go to the movies. We search the internet and find a movie we have been wanting to see and look forward to our movie date and popcorn. I remember rainy days at the beach when I was growing up. Each summer my family would pack up our old station wagon and travel from Chicago to the isolated coast of North Carolina. We counted on our beach time. We also knew there were sure to be some rainy days, but that was part of the deal. When a Noreaster came in, we would begin to plan our rainy day activities. One favorite activity was a visit to the weather-beaten and weary old beach arcade. You could buy cotton candy and ride the two rides they offered. Sometimes we would bowl with little tiny balls that hit miniature pins at the end of narrow lanes. The amazing thing about this makeshift bowling alley was that real people reset the pins. Sometimes those real people had to react pretty fast to avoid being hit by an ill-timed ball rolling their way. Beach houses always have games old worn out games, but none the less fun to play. We even managed to finish entire Monopoly games. I learned Scrabble from my word-clever grandmother. The grown-ups would play bridge. There were usually jigsaw puzzles that we would lay out on a wob bly legged card table; more often than not it was some dark dreary European landscape. Bookshelves held dog-eared paperback books. The assortments offered were eclectic. Avid readers all, we could always find something to read. We pressed our noses to the damp screens, hoping the rain would pass and we could once more return to the beach. We knew that a storm would leave all kinds of new treasures for us to find. There is something special about the beach after a storm. The beach has a scrubbed look. Big Guy and I are always eager to get to the beach and see what the ocean has offered up. Our best treasures have been found after storms. Rainy days are just part of beach living. We have learned to treasure them, but do not want too many and certainly not another hurricane!

Recently, hoping to forestall a midlife crisis, she studied both jewelry making at Bostons North Bennet Street School and gemology at the Gemological Institute of America.

A recent transplant to Amelia Island, she is happily creating away, finding limitless inspiration in her new surroundings. coribdesigns@gmail.comSuzanne BinnieObserving colors, textures and scenes in the natural world are starting points for my work. I use a limited palette for pleasing color harmonies. I like the viewer to be drawn into my paintings and be provoked into their own interpretation and conclusions. Moving to Florida has opened new possibilities for study of art in all mediums. I graduated from Penn State University with a fine arts degree. Prominent artists Janet Walsh (floral painting), Tom Lynch and Stephen Quiller (landscapes), Margaret Huddy (color theory), and Susan Abbott (design theory) have been instrumental to my artistic style, as well as classical artists Paul Klee, Morris Lewis, Richard Diebenkorn, and Helen Frankenthaller. suzybinnie@gmail.comCamille BreenCamille, a native of Pennsylvania and a graduate of the University of Miami, worked as a professional potter for 25 years in Coral Gables, Fla., selling to galleries throughout the world.
