Renowned Cellist Performs in Oriental The artistry of British cello virtuoso Natalie Clein has been described as “mesmerizing” and “soaringly passionate.” Prepare to be blown away by this gifted cellist when

she takes the stage with pianist Dina Vainshtein at 7:30pm at the Old Theater, Oriental, on Friday, March 22. The performance, presented by the Pamlico Musical Society, includes works by early 20th century composers Nadia Boulanger, Frank Bridge, Elisabeth Luygens and Rebecca Clarke. With a global reputation as an artist of exceptional musicality and integrity, Clein first came to international attention when, at the age of 16, she won the BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition in 1994. As a student she was awarded the Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Scholarship by the Royal College of Music and completed her studies with Heinrich Schiff in Vienna. Awards continued, including the Eurovision Competition for Young Musicians and the Classical Brit Award for Young British Performer of 2005. Tickets to this concert are $22 and are available online at www.pamlicomusic.org. For more information, call 252-617-2125.

E

merald Isle has been the place to be when it comes to celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in Carteret County. The town’s annual festival draws more than 30,000 folks to the Emerald Plantation Shopping Center for a day of green splattered family fun. Planned this year for 9am-6pm on Saturday, March 16, festival organizers are expecting more than 75 arts and craft and food vendors and a plethora of activities. While the festival is great for the local economy during the off-season, it also serves as pre-season bash, a chance to chase away any cobwebs that may be lingering after our long winter nap. No fear – the warm summer season are coming and the St. Patrick’s Day celebration lets us know it won’t be long. Those who venture out for the region’s first outdoor festival of the year will certainly find plenty to see and do. Sponsored in part of Transportation Impact and the Emerald Isle Business Association and organized by Emerald Isle Parks and Recreation, the festival features amusement rides, live entertainment, a beer garden. Vendors won’t open their booths until Saturday morning, explained organizers, however, those who want a little preview of the rides can attend on Friday night and purchase an unlimited armband, giving the holder a chance to ride as many times as they want throughout the evening for a set rate. From handmade jewelry and original artwork to face painting and hair bows, vendors lined up for the event are handpicked to ensure a wide variety of options. In keeping with its early philosophy, no commercial vendors are allowed. Instead, all items must be handmade. The same rings true for the bountiful food options offered throughout the day, including, of course, plenty of corned beef and cabbage. So what can you expect? Lots of green, from outlandish hats to polka dot socks, nothing is too silly for the St. Patrick’s Festival. Green tuxedos, flashy glasses, leprechaun costumes, we’ve seen them all through the years. While rides, food and fun take a center stage, a full schedule of live entertainment will provide the soundtrack as the day progresses. Be sure to be on the lookout for the Port City Pipes & Drums parading around the festival throughout the day. The beer garden will be open from 9am-6pm. In addition, those looking for something to sate their appetite will find an array of festival fare, including traditional corned beef and cabbage. Entrance to the festival and parking, as always, is free. To learn more about the St. Patrick’s celebration, call 252-3546350.

Leadership Carteret to Graduate March 13

T

he members of Leadership Carteret 2019 will cross the finish line of their 10-week journey to complete the annual leadership development program offered through the Carteret County Chamber of Commerce. Project presentations and the graduation ceremony will take place on Wednesday, March 13, at the Crystal Coast Civic Center in Morehead City. “This is the 31st consecutive year that the chamber has presented Leadership Carteret with the goal of building stronger community leaders,” said Alan Leary of RE/MAX Ocean Properties, who cochairs the Leadership Carteret Steering Committee, along with Steve Hellersperk of ACS Computer Services and Toastmasters-Morehead City. During the 10 week program, the class toured behind the scenes at the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores, the Coast Guard Field Office Fort Macon, Fort Macon State Park, Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point. They heard from Carteret County government officials, mayors and employers. In addition to getting an insiders’ view of the region, the class also heard from community leaders talking about (what else?) leadership. Some of the speakers who addressed the class were Ret. Colonel Dennis Goodwin, Powell Osteen, Senior Pastor FUMC, Mindy Fitzpatrick of the Friendly Market, Patrick Conneely of Chick-

fil-A, County Commissioner Mark Mansfield, Vie Admiral William Dean Lee (Ret.) United States Coast Guard, John Capps of Rotary, and Mayor Rett Newton of Beaufort. The class will have finished projects for five separate nonprofit entities, including the Carteret County Humane Society, Hope Mission Christian Ministries, Outer Banks Wildlife Shelter (OWLS), The Bridge Down East and the NC Coastal Federation. Prior to the graduation ceremony, each group will offer presentations to the other groups and county dignitaries that outlined their nonprofit projects and what it has meant to them. The keynote speaker at this year’s Leadership Carteret graduation will be Maj. Gen. Thomas A. Braaten of the US Marine Corps (Ret.). He has an impressive record with the Marines starting in 1966 when he enlisted up until 2001 when he retired after completing his command tour at MCAS Cherry Point. His overseas tours included Vietnam, Okinawa and Atsugi, Japan, England, Hawaii and Panama. After retiring from the Marines, Braaten served as president/CEO of the Twin Rivers YMCA in New Bern for nearly five years and then became the airport director for the Coastal Regional Airport in 2006 and retiring in 2016.

ISLAND REVIEW â&#x20AC;¢ March 2019

~Emerald Tidings~ After three months of service to Emerald Isle, I remain very optimistic about the Town of Emerald Isle and ongoing efforts to continue to provide quality municipal services to the community, its citizens and patrons. The dedicated elected leaders and capable staff are committed to success in service delivery and I am blessed to have the opportunity to lead administrative efforts on their behalf. With the guidance of a very capable and experienced consultant, the recruitment process is progressing on schedule for the town board of commissioners to select a new town manager in the March-April timeframe. In the meantime, staff and management are progressing with elected official and early citizen input to prepare a municipal operating budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1. The process will conclude with a public hearing on the recommended budget and adoption in June. I do not foresee or anticipate any obstacles that will prevent an efficient budget development process and smooth administrative leadership transition ahead.

Eastern Emerald Isle Beach Nourishment Project

Since my last update, all required approvals and permits have been secured to allow the planned $20 million Post-Florence Phase 1 nourishment project to proceed as scheduled with completion by April 30. The state grant, county and town funded project will restore the significantly eroded beaches of the Salter Path community, the Town of Indian Beach and the eastern portion of Emerald Isle with the Town of Emerald Isle portion constituting approximately 65 percent of the project scope. The contracts have all been finalized and a pre-construction meeting between local officials, the contractor and environmental regulatory agencies was held in late January. Plans call for the contractor to have two dredges on the project with the smaller of the two dredges to arrive first and begin work in Salter Path while the second larger dredge will focus on the Emerald Isle portion upon arrival. With the two dredges scheduled for work on the project, beach sand restoration activities will move quickly toward completion. Barring any unforeseen complications, contractor Great Lakes is committed to delivering a quality project on time and within budget. I remain confidant the eastern beaches of Emerald Isle will be in excellent condition for the ensuing spring/summer tourist season. The County Beach Preservation Office has set up a webpage for this project. It has been updated to reflect details on staging activities and scheduling information from all meetings and communications with involved parties. Citizens and others interested are encouraged to 24

I am pleased to advise that the town has continued to address public building and facilities damaged by the hurricane. Most notably, contracts have been authorized to repair Fire Station #2 building damages and for extensive dangerous tree and limb removal activities in the Emerald Isle Woods Park and McleanSpell Park. Upon completion, these two Town park facilities will be reopened for public use. All these improvements and other town efforts have been coordinated with federal and state emergency management officials and full reimbursement of eligible expenditures is expected to be received in the months ahead. The town has continued other clean-up activities throughout the community. Citizens and contractors are (Continued on page 26)

~Emerald Tidings~ (Continued from page 24)

reminded that ongoing town crew recovery efforts do not include town collection of construction and demolition (C&D) debris. Consistent with long standing town policies, removal of all C&D materials remains the responsibility of the property owner or their agents. We respectfully request that property owners require contractors to remove these materials as soon as possible. Town officials certainly understand the challenges property owners are facing in timely completion of repairs to damaged buildings and property; therefore, we are exercising what I contend is an appropriate degree of discretion to not further pressure already strained property owner patience through the use of any heavy handed or ill-advised and cumbersome code enforcement processes. With the affected property owners and town agents working together, it is my hope that this approach will suffice in achieving our goal. We must, however, do our collective best to ensure as we inch closer to the tourist season that our beautiful community’s appearance does not unnecessarily suffer. The town administration strongly desires to avoid committing limited public resources and valuable time enforcing town regulations to this end. Concerning very important efforts to restore damaged beach and sound front water accesses, the town is pursuing plans to address necessary improvements as a high priority. In the affected area of the eastern Emerald Isle beach nourishment project which begins at the Indian Beach town limits and will end in the vicinity of the Eastern Ocean Regional Access, repairs to significantly damaged beach access points will obviously be challenged until the beach sand replenishment activities

have been essentially completed. However, I am committed to ensuring that the town takes necessary interim steps to ensure adequate and safe access is maintained throughout the project duration at all public beach accesses within the project area. As for access improvements outside the upcoming beach project area, the town is developing an action plan and will be pursuing restoration of all public access facilities with the goal continuing to be completion of most if not all necessary improvements prior to the tourist season. At this time, the only possible exceptions may be major damaged dock accesses on the sound side that will require prior FEMA authorization and reimbursement approval due to the scale and scope of these site specific projects. In closing, I appreciate all the comments and feedback publication of this information produces. I try to respond in a timely manner to all comments. I appreciate the kind words I receive and your patience. I also occasionally get a request or comment that is worthy of inclusion here. A citizen wisely suggested I include a reminder that we all remain diligent in doing our individual part to keep our community clean and green by first avoiding littering and second by helping to pick up any litter. As a result of the storm and its aftermath, we have some additional work to do along our streets, paths and on private property as well. Please do your part to help make and keep Emerald Isle a litter free special island paradise. This includes being responsible pet owners by cleaning up their waste and keeping our furry friends safe by obeying leash and restraint requirements.

Inheritance

By Dani Shapiro Dani Shapiro, the acclaimed author of her earlier memoir, “Hourglass,” discovered through DNA testing she was not the offspring of the father she had known. Growing up in an orthodox Jewish home in New Jersey she had shrugged off the physical differences she had from her parents. In the spring of 2016 she submitted her DNA to a genealogy website and received the surprising news her deceased father was not her biological father. This was especially shocking since she had always felt because of her personality, “I was my father’s daughter.” This is a book about secrets, those kept from her by her mother, who also was deceased when she discovered that it was artificial insemination which led to her birth. It was gutwrenching for Shapiro to find her religious and ethnic identity uprooted after 50+ years assuming she was who her parents had told her she was. It was a staggering discovery to find that in the early days of sperm donors her parents went to a suspect clinic in order to try and have a child. "Inheritance" is a wise and thorough examination of the news of how her genealogy affected her. She pieces together the hidden story of her life and finds out through her research her biological father is a retired doctor living in Oregon. She very much desires to meet him in order to find the missing parts of her identity. She processes and ponders each new bit of information as she recreates the story of her life. She reconsiders what it means to belong. Two gripping aspects of this book are the difficulties the author had with her mother as she was growing up and the loss of her full Jewish identity. Readers will be disturbed by her recollections of her relationship with her mother and will find interesting the insights into what her religious background contributed to her identity. Personal identity is a frail matter as this book points out. This is a true detective story, one which is not unique to Shapiro as DNA testing has opened up a can of worms for many families and served as a hidden time bomb for others. This book is intense and intimate, defining and revealing. It will cause readers to question the ethics of some medical breakthroughs and the striking consequences of what we can discover through our genealogy. For those thinking of sending off that DNA kit it may result in a pause to act or may result in a rush to find out.  Curt Finch Emerald Isle Books

Figure 1 – Site map depicting the geographic ranges, volume of sand (cubic yardage - cy), and borrow source for the upcoming Post-Florence Renourishment Project (Phase I).

Post-Florence Renourishment Project (Phase I) Roughly a year ago (or “BF” = Before Florence), the communities of Bogue Banks began planning for the first beach nourishment project that would be constructed under the guise of the new Bogue Banks Master Beach Nourishment Plan (Master Plan). Rather than taking a project-by-project approach that was necessitated in the early 2000s; the Master Plan was developed over the course of the past decade to serve as an umbrella engineering and permitting document for beach nourishment along the entire island of Bogue Banks over the next 50 years. The Master Plan also helps with our budget forecasting by projecting nourishment efforts into the future in order to better manage the portion of the County’s occupancy tax legislatively-mandated for beach nourishment. Also and again going back a year ago, it was several years since any portion of Bogue Banks between the Atlantic Beach/Pine Knoll Shores border westward to the Point in Emerald Isle had been nourished (~18 miles). Parts of Pine Knoll Shores and Emerald Isle were last nourished in 2013, while Indian Beach/Salter Path was last nourished in 2007. We had a nourishment project planned for this winter (2018-19) entailing ~5.4 miles of beach along the shorelines of east Emerald Isle (EI), Indian Beach and Salter Path. Hurricane Florence passed by in September and accordingly we refocused our efforts, made a few slight changes, and re-termed our project as the Post-Florence Renourishment Project (Phase I) – see Fig. 1. This best describes 30

ISLAND REVIEW • March 2019

what we are trying to accomplish, and is more consistent for FEMA reimbursement purposes. Decisions from FEMA concerning reimbursement for beach nourishment, or their “428” program, which provides a fixed-cost number in lump-sum, will be made later this year (2019). Phase II of the Post-Florence Renourishment Project is ideally scheduled for next winter (2019-2020) and will encompass Central and Western EI, Pine Knoll Shores, and East Atlantic Beach. The Phase I project is estimated to include 945,446 cubic yards (cy) of nourishment sand, which is obviously a large number that maybe difficult to envision, but considering a dump truck holds ~12 cy of sand; the Post-Florence project can be considered as equivalent to 78,787 dump trucks worth of sand – or enough sand to extend a regulation college basketball court (94 feet x 50 feet) well over a mile in to the air. The source of sand for nourishment is the Offshore Dredged Material Disposal Site, or ODMDS, which is a component of the dredging program that routinely occurs at the federally-maintained Morehead City Harbor. The ODMDS has been utilized before for nourishment along Bogue Banks in 2004, 2007 and 2013 and passed the eyeball/aesthetics (and engineering) test with flying colors. Visualizing the nourishment project in cross-section as one would go from the top of the dune seaward, the beachfill will be contoured by; (1) tying into the existing, eroded frontal dune at +12


feet elevation (NAVD 88) and maintaining that top dune elevation at varying lengths as one progresses seaward, (2) the slope of the newly constructed frontal dune will be graded on a 5:1 slope to the elevation of +6 feet, (3) the beach berm (flat part of the beach) will be extended from that point seaward at +6 feet elevation at varying lengths, and (4) the slope of the fill from the berm crest out to sea will be on a 20:1 grade. The newly created dune crest and dune slope will be planted (vegetated) with Sea Oats and Bitter Panicum as part of the contract (see Fig. 2). Great Lakes Dredge & Dock  furnished the lone bid for the project bid totaling $20,109,385 and the firm of Moffatt & Nichol is serving as project engineer (i.e., design, bid solicitation & award, construction Figure 2 – Typical cross-section of the Post-Florence Renourishment Project (Phase I) – administration, etc.). The construction the dune crest and slope will be vegetated as part of the nourishment contract. portion of the project will adhere to the following cost-schedule; (1) the state is providing $5 million per last year’s budget bill which will be updated at least on a weekly basis to monitor (S.L. 2018-5), which will be apportioned to the towns based on the progress once construction begins. Great Lakes Dredge & Dock percentage of cubic yardage to be received in each municipality, should begin mobilizing equipment in mid-February and dredging/ and (2) the balance of cost per municipality is subsequently split pumping should follow the first week of March. Construction must via 75 percent nourishment reserve (occupancy tax) and 25 be completed on April 30 to limit any adverse impacts to biological percent the town receiving nourishment. resources.

Path to Mindfulness

M

indfulness, by definition, is the psychological process of bringing one’s attention to experiences in the present moment. This can be developed over time by reoccurring practice. Far too often we forget about exercising our mind in addition to our physical bodies. But, with a little practice and some patience, mindfulness can become easier. One of the easiest practices for mindfulness is through meditation. Many have preconceived ideas of meditation, but I encourage you to give it a chance. The goal is to become one with the current moment, free of thought and undistracted. Sitting without thinking about anything, for me, seems impossible! How can we turn society off when we all have smart phones. I mean, my 92-year-old grandfather has a smart phone. All those notifications everywhere we go. I don’t know about you but I have a news ding followed by various notification dings such as email, my children’s school, text messages, banking, work apps, etc. It seems like an impossible feat to tune the world out and concentrate on the present all guided by my breath. But, I attempted it and have to admit, I feel amazing! Our in house health coach Juan Pulido encourages all of his clients to try meditation as often as they can. “The benefits are limitless, such as decreased stress and anxiety, increased quality of life, and increased overall happiness,” said Juan. “These are often hard barriers to achieving someone’s goals in life, such as weight loss, therefore it is imperative we work on our mental fitness as often as we work on our physical fitness.”

ISLAND REVIEW • March 2019

Jayme Limbaugh

Juan suggests starting small and aiming for 5 minutes of meditation a day, increasing by a minute each week. You can set a timer and see if you are able to tune everything out and focus on your breathing, allowing your body to relax with each successive breath. When thoughts enter your mind, acknowledge them and then move them out of your mind. Don’t over judge yourself, nothing is going to happen perfect the first time. Be patient and understanding with yourself and the thoughts that come in your head. Over time you can increase to as long as it takes for you to feel the overall effects of chronic meditation and mindfulness. Everyone’s needs are different. Some of you may benefit from simply 5 minutes a day while others may require an hour a day. It doesn’t matter what time of day you practice, just pick a time that is realistic for you and stick to it. My biggest mindfulness triumph to date is not losing my cool when something catastrophic happens at work. I used to react with crunched shoulders, clenched jaw and tight fists with racing thoughts of how I was going to fix this problem immediately. Now, those reactions are almost non-existent. I take a deep breath and close my eyes allowing my mind to not run away with racing thoughts. Instead I think the entire situation through and come to a valid and calm solution. You can read more about my journey toward mindfulness on our Crystal Coast Wellness and Performance Center blog. Feel free to reach out to myself or Juan if you have questions. We are always willing to help in anyway whether it is about your mind, body, or soul.


health & wellness Three Ways Oatmeal Benefits the Body

O

atmeal is one of many options people have when sitting down to breakfast each morning. Though brand name cereals or staples like bacon and eggs might be the most popular choices at the breakfast table, few foods pack as nutritious a punch as oatmeal. Instant oatmeal might be found in the pantries of many households. But it’s important to note that packets of instant oatmeal are often loaded with sodium and sugar, which can compromise the nutritional benefits of the oats. In fact, WebMD says some instant oatmeal packets contain as much as eight teaspoons of sugar per serving. Store-bought plain rolled oats, or steel-cut oats, are typically nutritious and low in both sugar and sodium. For example, Bob’s Red Mill Extra Thick Whole Grain Rolled Oats contain just one gram of sugar per serving and no sodium. Oatmeal can provide a great start to your day and pay other dividends as well, though itÕs important that consumers read package labels so they are getting the nutritional benefits of whole grain oats without the added sugar and sodium. The following are three of the many ways a morning bowl of oatmeal can benefit your body.

decrease low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, which is commonly referred to as LDL or “bad” cholesterol. A single serving of Bob’s Red Mill Extra Thick Whole Grain Rolled Oats provides 1.6 grams of soluble fiber, helping people get a healthy head start on lowering their LDL throughout the day.

2. Oatmeal is loaded with vitamins and minerals.

The online medical resource Healthline notes that oats contain a well-balanced nutrient composition that can help people get well on their way to consuming their recommended daily intake of various vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. For example, half a cup of oats contains 41 percent of the RDI of phosphorous and 20 percent of the RDI of iron. That same serving contains 51 grams of carbohydrates and 13 grams of protein.

3. Oatmeal can help people maintain healthy weights.

Oatmeal, so long as it isn’t instant oatmeal, is one of the rare foods that’s both filling and low in calories. That makes it an ideal choice for those who want a filling breakfast that won’t affect their waistlines. Oatmeal is filling because of its fiber content. Unlike other carbohydrates, fiber does not break down into sugar once it’s consumed. When fiber is consumed, it absorbs water and takes up space in the stomach, leading to feelings of fullness that can prevent overeating. The nutritional benefits of oatmeal make it a must-have item for anyone who wants to start their day off in a healthy way.

1. Oatmeal can help lower “bad” cholesterol.

According to the Mayo Clinic, oatmeal contains soluble fiber, which can reduce the absorption of cholesterol into the bloodstream. And it doesn’t even take much soluble fiber to reap such benefits. Five to 10 grams of soluble fiber per day has been shown to

4Ocean Supports a Cleaner Ocean Meet Andrew Cooper and Alex Schulze. In 2015 they were newly minted graduates of the business college at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton … off on a three-week surfing trip to Bali in Indonesia. Ben Waldron, online editor for Surfer Magazine, says waves off Bali in the Indian Ocean are considered “top of the line, surf city.” “Cooper and Schulze were perplexed by the amount of plastic on the beach and in the ocean. The trip they’d anticipated … was spent detangling themselves from clusters of trash,” Waldron wrote. They weren’t the only ones. “The rampant pollution was putting a damper on local fishermen who were coming in each day with nets filled with more plastic than fish,” Waldron said. The norm, however, was for the fishermen to dump the trash…back where it came from…into the ocean. “We saw them taking all the plastic out of their nets and throwing it back in the ocean,” Cooper said about the fishermen. “We were like, ‘C’mon man, why are you doing that? Stop throwing it back overboard into the ocean, that’s why there’re no fish left.’ They literally said, ‘Well, no one’s paying us to collect plastic.’” Waldron reported that this encounter caused a lightbulb to go off for Cooper and Schulze. How could they “convert the fishermen into fishers of plastic?” They described it as their personal epiphany – an opportunity to help change the polluted oceans of the world for the better. The question is pretty simple: How can we make a positive change to the environment and provide sustainable incomes for those we employ to collect the trash? The answer is unfolding … one pound of plastics at a time. Cooper and Schulze launched their business 4Ocean in 2017. They were selected as the 2018 winners of Surfer magazine’s “Agent of Change” award, given annually to “a group or individual who uses surfing to better the lives of others.” Check the 4Ocean odometer at the company website 4ocean.com. 4Ocean employees have collected millions of pounds of trash from oceans and coastlines around the planet. The number is growing by a rate of more than 31,000 pounds daily. Curiously, Waldron asked: “What were the fishermen’s reactions when you told them, ‘We’re going to pay you to catch trash?’”

Schulze replied: “At first, nobody believes you. Trying to explain it with the language barrier and the charades, you look pretty ridiculous. They wonder, ‘What’s the catch?’ Then when they really understand, they get unbelievably stoked. It’s 10 times easier to go out and collect plastic than fish.” “That’s pretty much how it started; now we have full-time retired fishermen collecting plastic seven days a week.” The revenue to support the operation is a massive retail campaign. By purchasing 4Ocean bracelets that sell for $20 each, consumers can show their support. Each bracelet is made from made from 100% recycled materials that have been recovered in 4Ocean cleanups. Each bracelet sold finances the cleanup of one more pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines. The beads are made from recycled glass bottles and the cord is made from recycled plastic water bottles. The unisex design is suitable for adults and children, and the bracelet is adjustable from 2-5 inches in diameter. A variety of styles are available, highlighting different sea creatures. The product line is rapidly expanding. Freelance journalist Danielle Macdonald in an article for InFlorida Magazine, complimented the millennial entrepreneurs and surfing dudes – Cooper and Schulte. “It has taken two young surfers to shake people’s comfort zone and shine a light on what’s really happening in our plastic-swamped oceans,” she wrote. “Not only are these eco-warriors changing the attitudes of consumers, they encapsulate the strength of human spirit and how the willpower of a few is not just a drop in the ocean.”

Plastics 101: Nip Pollution at its Source Plastic is not the enemy, asserts Andrew Cooper, co-founder of 4Ocean – both a for-profit company that is growing and an environmental movement that is gaining global momentum. Cooper says the problem is where the plastic ends up – in the ocean. “Every time it rains, it’s like pressing the reset button, so (Continued on page 42) ISLAND REVIEW • March 2019

(Continued from page 41)

much trash flows in from the streets,” he said. Capt. Tim Hyde, who is the skipper of the bright blue 4Ocean Carolina Skiff, told reporter Marci Shatzman of the South Florida SunSentinel, headquartered in Deerfield, Fla.: “The trash collects at the outfall pipes and everything people throw away comes through the storm drains.” “In three days,” Hyde said, “we collected well over 1,000 pounds (of trash in the water) between West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale” – a distance of just over 40 miles. If it’s bad here along Florida’s eastern coast, said Alex Schulze, also a 4Ocean co-founder, “You can imagine what it’s like in underdeveloped countries that have a lack of recycling infrastructure and lack of trash pickup in general.” “What happens in these different countries is that there’s no incentive for people to clean up after themselves,” Schulze said. “Plastic just gets thrown into the streets. As soon as it rains, it comes surging out of the rivers and into the ocean.” 4Ocean’s research department indicates that as much as “90% of plastic in the world’s oceans is coming from land-based sources.” Cooper and Schulze came up with the idea that they could help to establish “plastic economies around the world by paying fishermen whose livelihoods have been affected by pollution to catch plastic,” wrote Ben Waldron of Surfer Magazine. The workhorse of the cleanup operation is 4Ocean’s OPR (Ocean Plastic Recovery) Vessel – a 135-foot offshore supply ship that goes into “the filthiest river mouths” to install floating barricade systems that will stop the plastic and collect it before it has a chance to enter the ocean. The OPR Vessel can bring in bring in 310,000 pounds of plastic per trip. Schulze says the mission is referred to as “intercept

and remove.” A fleet of smaller panga boats can be launched to get into harder to reach and narrow areas. Each panga can haul out about 1,500 pounds of trash. Schulze commented that 4Ocean “has every intention on expanding. Our dream is to be able to use that plastic we’re collecting to make sustainability-based products that consumers would want to be a part of,” he said. “There’s a wide array of things you can do with the plastic, and that’s both recyclable plastic and the stuff that’s deemed un-recyclable. We can make structurally based materials; we can make ‘plastic lumber ‘for houses from the plastic we pull out of the ocean.” “We are doing everything we can to not only pull the plastic out of the ocean but to find sustainable based solutions with that plastic. That’s what’s going to create the circular economy,” Schulze said. Cooper made note: “We live in a world of consumerism; every purchase we make is a vote, and it’s the big brands that are counting the ballots. If we can teach people to use their dollar to vote for a company that’s doing good, they will listen and these big brands will start using ocean plastic in their products.” “Or Coke will start saying, ‘For every soda purchased, we’ll remove a bottle out of the ocean.’ The reason why these big companies aren’t doing things like this is because there’s not enough attention on it right now. But if we can raise enough awareness, they’ll start doing it.” “Understand that small actions can have a huge impact,” Cooper said, “just by adopting a sustainability lifestyle and cutting down the use of plastic. If you do have to use plastic, make sure that it gets recycled so it doesn’t end up in the trash and certainly not the ocean.”

Girls Campaign to Eliminate Plastic Bags

B

ye Bye Plastic Bags has become a global youth movement to end plastics pollution within the Earth’s oceans. According to the originators, sisters Melati and Isabel Wijsen of Bali, Indonesia, the project sort of named itself back in 2013. Bye Bye Plastic Bags is clever, catchy and memorable. They are making a difference. It’s a fascinating story that was told recently by Michael Sullivan, senior Asia correspondent with National Public Radio. Melati is now 18, and Isabel is 16, so they were quite young when they formed their anti-plastics posse. Sullivan explained that “Bali is part of the island nation of Indonesia, which is the world’s second biggest polluter when it comes to marine plastic, trailing only China. And when ocean currents carry that plastic to the tourist island of Bali, it’s a public relations nightmare.” It’s a numbers game. Bali is about the same size as the State of Delaware. Bali has a population of some 4.3 million people, while Delaware has a mere 1 million inhabitants. Simply, the Bali waste stream is overwhelming the waste collection and treatment capacity. From another perspective, the population density of Bali is about 1,930 people per square mile. In contrast, Carteret County has about 70 residents per square mile. The Bali plastics pollution problem was apparent every day, right in front of Wijsen family, Sullivan said. The Wijsen home is beachfront property. “If we went swimming,” Isabel said, “a plastic bag would wrap around your arm. You just say enough is enough.” Sullivan reported the girls “went online and discovered that more than 40 countries had already banned or taxed plastic bags” by 2013. “We thought,” Isabel remembered, “if they can do it, c’mon, Bali! C’mon, Indonesia. We can do it, too! So, without a business plan or a strategy or a budget … we went forward with pure passion to make our island home plastic bag free.” Sullivan said the girls tried to model “influential world leaders who they viewed as change-makers, including Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi.” Melati explained: “We didn’t want to wait until we were older to start making a difference. It wasn’t even a question, really. It was

more like, what can we do, as kids, right now?” Bye Bye Plastic Bags was going on a food strike, Sullivan reported, employing one of the tools used by Gandhi. “He had peaceful ways of reaching his goals, of getting attention, so that was a huge inspiration for us,” the sisters noted. Bali’s provincial governor got wind of the scheme and said, let’s talk. “Within 24 hours, we had a phone call and … were picked up from school and escorted to the office of the governor,” Isabel said. He pledged his help to rid Bali of plastic bags. “Dancing with politicians,” Melati told Sullivan, “is like three steps forward, two steps back and again, and again. It’s almost like the cha-cha.” In September 2018, a new governor took office. He is Wayan Koster, and he promptly instituted a law banning single-use plastics in 2019, thanks in large part to the sisters’ efforts, Sullivan stated. Single-use plastics include shopping bags, Styrofoam and plastic straws. Producers, distributors, suppliers and businesses have six months to replace items with alternative materials. Those that do not comply could lose their business permits. Bali also plans to implement a $10 per tourist tax to help clean up its beaches, reports The Jakarta Post. “Overseas visitors will pay to preserve the environment and Balinese culture. Tourists will understand,” said Gov. Koster. “They will be happy to pay it as it will be used to strengthen our environment and culture.” The Post estimates that 80 percent of the ocean pollution comes straight off the island. It cited multiple instances where hotel workers would collect trash and just dump it into the rivers, which would then carry the waste out to sea. The trash eventually finds its way back to the resort island’s beaches on coastal tides and currents. “That’s so gross,” say the Bye Bye Plastic Bag (BBPG) girls. BBPB chapters have sprung up in 28 locations so far around the world in places “where kids can feel like their voices are being heard.” The movement has reached the United States, in places like California, New York and Pennsylvania. Why not in North Carolina? BBPB is a worthy cause waiting for a worthy champion. C’mon, Carteret.

Flashback to 1948:

The Day President Truman Came to Raleigh More than 50,000 people converged on the North Carolina State Capitol grounds in Raleigh some 70 years ago to witness the dedication of a new monument, which had been erected to memorialize three native Tar Heels who ascended to the office of US president. To do the honors on Oct. 19, 1948, was US President Henry S. Truman. He sang the praises of Andrew Jackson, James K. Polk and Andrew Johnson. “All three … were men of the people, men of deep religious faith … and men with dauntless courage. They never swerved from the people’s cause. They deserve not only an enduring monument, but they deserve understanding and remembrance.” Each man served as president in time of trouble, Truman said, while occupying the White House during the 19th century. Andrew Jackson of Union County served as the seventh president from 1829-37, and his inscription reads: “He revitalized American democracy.” Jackson is credited with making “democracy the touchstone of American politics.” He was viewed as the first “people’s president,” ushering in what historians have dubbed the era of “the common man” in American politics. James Polk of Mecklenburg County served as the 11th president from 1845-49 and was praised because: “He enlarged our national boundaries.” Indeed, during Polk’s term in office, the United States annexed Texas, acquired California and determined the 49th parallel as the international boundary with Canada, thereby setting the stage for Congress to establish the Oregon Territory. Andrew Johnson of Wake County served as the 17th president from 1865-69. His inscription attests: “He defended the Constitution.” Johnson was serving as vice president to President Abraham Lincoln when Congress passed the Thirteenth Amendment to the US Constitution to “abolish slavery and involuntary servitude.” When Lincoln was assassinated in April 1865, Johnson was sworn in as commander in chief. A great accomplishment was Johnson’s perseverance in securing the amendment’s ratification by the states. He personally appealed to governors of six hold-out states (including North Carolina and South Carolina). Johnson prevailed, and the amendment was ratified Dec. 6, 1865. The Raleigh monument was sponsored by the NC General Assembly, and it is one of the last works completed by acclaimed sculptor Charles Keck of New York City. The figures are cast bronze – Polk and Johnson are shown in seated positions, flanking Jackson, who is shown riding his horse. All are atop a pedestal of Mount Airy 46

granite. The mystery remains to this day – which of Jackson’s many horses is in the statue? He was both an ardent breeder and an avid bettor. Terra Schramm, state capitol site administrator, said it appears to be a horse with no name. Just for fun, let’s assume he is a white stallion known as Sam Patch. Jackson named that horse after America’s first daredevil Sam Patch, a professional waterfall jumper. Or perhaps the horse is a she – Jackson’s gray mare named Bolivia, who was a sleek racehorse. A third possibility is Duke, Jackson’s warhorse from the Battle of New Orleans. Remember the year? It was 1814 when American troops “took a little trip … along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississipp’ … and caught the bloody British in the town of New Orleans. We fired our guns and the British kept a-comin’ – there wasn’t nigh as many as there was a while ago.” Truman Praises the Carolina 3 Presidents Andrew Jackson, James K. Polk and Andrew Johnson “lived through days when reason was overcome by emotion,” President Harry Truman said, so their “acts were misunderstood and misinterpreted. Intense feeling obscures the truth.” “Each of these men did his duty as president of the whole nation against the forces of pressure and persuasion which sought to make him act as a representative of a part of the nation only,” Truman said. “Each provoked the wrath of some sincere and honest men, which is a serious thing. A president may dismiss the abuse of scoundrels, but to be denounced by honest men honestly outraged is a test of greatness that none but the strongest men survive.” Truman commented: “It is a happy circumstance that this is a monument not to one man but to three … who are forever a part of North Carolina.” “The Constitution declares that there shall be no ‘titles’ of nobility in this republic. It does not say that there shall be no nobility. But it is not nobility attained by birth. One may come to it from a camp, as Jackson did, or from a university, as Polk did, or from a tailor’s bench, as Johnson did. “Do your duty, and history will do you justice,” Truman concluded.

Truman’s ‘Other Speech’ Was Pure Politics The date of US President Harry S. Truman’s appearance in Raleigh is significant – Oct. 19, 1948. The presidential election was just two


weeks away – Nov. 2. The presidential side of Harry Truman shone through in his statesman-esque delivery of remarks about North Carolina’s trio of American presidents. His formal address contained about 2,625 words. He was more than glad to accept the invitation to come to Raleigh to mix “business and pleasure.” For Truman, the fun part was being on the campaign trail and speaking at a political rally that the Democrats had set up in the afternoon at the NC State Fairgrounds. He had the 3,155-word political speech in his back pocket. The fairgrounds seemed to be an ideal agricultural-related venue for Truman to memorialize a North Carolina “invention,” fondly remembered as the “Hoover Cart.” Although by 1948, America was viewing the Great Depression era in the rearview mirror, the Democrats were still clinging to the flashback image of the Hoover Cart to try to appeal to rural voters. Truman noted that the first “models” of Hoover Carts were created by North Carolina farmers, beginning during the administration of Republican Herbert Hoover (1929-33). Basically, the Hoover Cart was part of a car with seats and rubber wheels, pulled by a horse, mule, oxen, goats or a pair of husky boys. Some carts were fairly elaborate, while others were rudimentary and rustic. Surely, during the Great Depression, times were tough. Families who had relied on automobiles for travel suddenly found themselves without the means to pay for fuel or maintain their vehicles. Available gasoline was expensive and highly taxed. Automobile transportation suddenly became a luxury, so common folks had to find alternative means of transportation. Hoover Cart drivers would stop at service stations for water for their animals and air for the tires. Service station owners began stocking and selling hay. Truman recalled how the Washington politicians in the early 1930s kept saying, “there was nothing to do about the Great Depression but ‘ride it out.’ Ride it out! You did – in Hoover Carts,” he said. One who saw opportunity in the 1930s to make lemonade out of the Hoover Cart phenomenon was Eugene L. Roberts Sr. of Pikeville in Wayne County. He was a local minister and publisher of a weekly newspaper, the Goldsboro Herald. Lew Powell, a veteran North Carolina journalist, wrote that Roberts suggested Goldsboro host a “Hoover Cart Rodeo” with contests and prizes as a publicity stunt. What a great idea, everyone agreed. Bronson Gardner, a native of Goldsboro, who has written several historical articles about the Goldsboro of yesteryear, said the rodeo was held on Sept. 10, 1932, and “some 400 Hoover Carts paraded through the town. Streets were jammed. Goldsboro’s police and four state highway patrolmen could not untangle the traffic jam.” The news media had a field day, saying the Hoover Cart Rodeo was the biggest thing to hit Goldsboro since 1896, when presidential candidate William Jennings Bryan came into town on the train. The media darling in 1932 turned out to be Goldsboro’s own Alphonso “Fonzy” Atkins Epps. Someone took a photograph of Epps standing by his Hoover Cart frame while strumming his guitar. A hand-painted sign read: “Hoover’s Got My Mule.” The photo was distributed nationwide by the wire services. In that day and time, that was the equivalent of “going viral.”

Governor Zeb: Do you mind moving over? That was the “request” issued when the North Carolina Memorials Commission selected the best location on the State Capitol grounds in Raleigh for a new monument to memorialize the presidential native

sons – Andrew Jackson, James K. Polk and Andrew Johnson. “One of the biggest issues that the monument commission faced in the 1940s was deciding on a Union Square location for the ‘Three Presidents,’” said Terra Schramm, state capitol site administrator. “The most prominent spot, at the east entrance to the Capitol, was already occupied by the Zebulon Baird Vance monument. “Plans to relocate the much beloved governor were met with cries of outrage from some quarters. Ultimately,” she said, “the North Carolina Memorials Commission decided to move Vance in order to highlight the national importance of Jackson, Polk and Johnson.” Vance was born on a farm near Weaverville in Buncombe County, and he was elected state governor twice. He served from 1862-65 and again from 1877-79. Only three other men hold that distinction in North Carolina history – to serve nonconsecutively as state governor. They were: Richard Caswell of Lenoir County, the very first Tar Heel governor, who served from 1776-80 and was returned to the office to serve from 1785-87; Benjamin Williams of Johnston County, who held the governorship from 1799-1802 and again from 1807-08; and James Baxter Hunt Jr. served from 1977-85 and also from 1993-2001. (Hunt was born in Greensboro and grew up in Wilson. He is credited as being “the longest-serving governor in the state’s history – at 5,838 days.” That reportedly puts him in a tie for fourth place for longevity among all governors in U.S. history.) Gov. Vance’s statue is now on the perimeter of Union Square, and it has worked out nicely, in that he is facing fellow governor Charles Brantley Aycock, who was born on a farm near the community of Fremont (then called Nahunta) in Wayne County. Aycock served as North Carolina’s governor from 1901-05. The original sculpture of Vance was dedicated in 1900. It was created by sculptor Henry Jackson Ellicott of Philadelphia, Pa., who specialized in Civil War-era statues. It was one of his last creations, as he died the following year. As constructed, the statue of Vance was mounted on an 11.5-foot tall base made of Mount Airy granite. The height of the pedestal “aroused criticism as it prevented viewers from admiring the details of the statue.” In response, when it was decided in 1949 that the Vance would be relocated to face the Aycock, the commission announced that Vance “would be lowered” to match the level of Aycock. Fortunately, both men were cast in bronze to be about 8.5 feet tall. The Aycock monument was dedicated in 1924 and sculpted by Gutzon Borglum, who was born in the Idaho Territory. His parents were Danish immigrants. (Borglum’s most important work was the Mount Rushmore National Memorial in Keystone, S.D., completed in 1941.) Back in Raleigh, on brisk fall nights…whispering music wafts skyward from Union Square. Is it the doing of the ghost of William Starr Myers, who was a student at UNC-Chapel Hill in 1897? A poet and songwriter, Myers created both “Hark the Sound” and “Tar Heel Born.” He supposedly comes at night, eluding a hungry wolfpack, to coach the voices of Zebulon Vance and Charles Aycock, for both men studied law at the UNC-Chapel Hill. Under Myers’ tutelage, those old statues can carry a tune … for they are “Tar Heel born and Tar Heel bred … and Tar Heel dead” … still singing “RAH, RAH, Car’lina … lina … RAH, RAH, Car’lina … lina.” Mike Wagoner ISLAND REVIEW • March 2019

Generation Z Comes to the Beach

I

f you have children or grandchildren, nieces or nephews, born after 1996, then you are already familiar with the wonder and joy represented by this newest generation of young Americans, Generation Z. Within my own family, we laughingly refer to our two “pods” of grandchildren as our “littles and bigs.” Our “bigs” birth years range from 2000 to 2006 and our “littles” from 2016 to 2018. We love the sweet synchronicity of three older grandsons and one granddaughter and then again in the younger set, three grandsons and one granddaughter! As a grandmother of eight members of Generation Z, I also understand the uniqueness of creating relaxed, comfy spaces for them to enjoy gatherings at our beach home. Generation Z cannot imagine a pre iPhone or Android world. Their childhood has been infinitely documented; every parent and grandparent can instantly photograph and video their every move and then post to Facebook and Instagram or share endlessly via text messages. Of course, if they are pre-teens or teens, they carry their own mobile phone in their pocket and are being defined as the best multi-multitaskers on the planet as they switch seamlessly from homework, Snapchat, YouTube, texting their grandmother, back to homework, listening to music on their headphones, snacking and playing Fortnite. Even our youngest toddler grandchildren know to request the phone from the nearest older sibling or adult “to see the pictures” or play their favorite “Old McDonald Had a Farm, E-I-E-I-O”! How to ensure that these digital natives still clamor for a good old fashioned beach vacation? Create an amazing oasis that shows you love them for who they are, these loving, compassionate, creative and adventurous young souls. I have recently embraced this challenge by designing just such a room to be used for the next few summers by the “bigs” and then will transition after that to be the enclave for the youngest grandchildren. A little used ground level kitchenette was severely flooded by hurricane Florence, which necessitated the removal of moldy cabinets and sheetrock. The post-disaster silver lining is we realized that a better use would be to create a bedroom haven for our grandchildren, which is now eagerly anticipated by all the cousins. Because we were designing with children over 6 years old in mind, we playfully turned to a treehouse shaped twin over twin bunkbed in a coastal driftwood color for one space for sleeping and 52

ISLAND REVIEW • March 2019

relaxing. For our second bunkbed, we chose a twin bed over a full size bed with its own staircase built-in as a more imaginative and fun alternative to a bunk ladder. The full size bed is a bonus whether used by a taller teen or, even more important, on the occasions when adults may choose to occupy the room. Generation Z also travels with lots of power cords for phones, iPads, and video game systems so we ramped up to double duplex electrical outlets (four separate plug-ins) in multiple locations around the room to ensure sibling and cousin harmony when time to charge their devices. The Generation Z bedroom wouldn’t be complete without a wallmounted smart TV for movies and video games. A collection of small, square ottomans scattered about will be mobile seating for TV viewing and gaming or fiercely contested board and card games. A cozy and colorful area rug laid over the vinyl wood-grained tile in driftwood white will provide a welcome spot for hanging out with their favorite cousins. A few well-placed shaker peg boards or wall hooks for hanging wet towels will restore some form of order to the teen chaos. Best of all for them, they are just steps away from the outside hot and cold shower with a bright, artistic mural by a local artist, their favorite shower at the cottage after long hours in the ocean and on the beach. Night time falls and the laughter and conversations continue until one by one, the brothers or sisters and cousins drift off to sleep. Cousin Camp … and another wonderful memory of their best beach week ever! Score one for their grandmother Honey again! Julia Batten Wax Broker/Owner, Emerald Isle Realty

BAROMETER

Crystal Coast Weddings

S

etting the stage for an amorous getaway, where wild horses roam  freely and southern charm meets rich maritime history,  the Crystal Coast is  nestled along North Carolina’s central shore.  The 85 miles of gleaming Atlantic beaches only begin to tell the story of  North Carolina’s Crystal Coast. The natural beauty of the  Southern Outer Banks lends itself to awe-inspiring coastal weddings. The Crystal Coast  will impress the most discerning,  nautical-loving bride with attentive  and gracious southern  service, award-winning chefs, and an array of distinctive venues to accommodate weddings of all sizes.  Endless venue options, ranging from quaint seaside cottages to  beachfront mansions, referred to locally as  “sandcastles,” provide the  perfect backdrop for a sophisticated  seaside soirée. A number of professional vacation rental companies come equipped with talented wedding and special events teams to cater to your every need. For the rustic-loving bride, Butterfly Kisses Pavilion provides just the right touch of farmhouse chic, whereas stunningly historic churches cater to the taste of a quintessential southern bride. Originally constructed in 1855, the perfectly preserved Octagon House stands sentinel among 60 acres of marshland. Other distinctive venues include the full-service, Celebration Cottage,  overlooking the serene  waters of Atlantic Beach, the NC Maritime Museum in Beaufort, where  boardwalks are  adorned with artisanal hand-carved wooden boats along the  glassy  waters of Taylors Creek and more. The secluded silken beaches, and the gentle lull of waters from  the  Atlantic make for idyllic ceremonies. Nature lovers and eco-

enthusiasts may opt to say “I do” at Cape Lookout National Seashore — a 56-mile strand of glimmering beaches that make up the coastal islands of eastern North Carolina, and one of the few remaining natural barrier island chains in the world,  accessible only  by boat. Those seeking an intimate and peaceful wedding will find it here, where Mother Nature has all there is to offer. An intimate ceremony at Shackleford Banks boasts romantic views of wild horses. For more than 300 years the wild horses of Shackleford Banks have  taken care of their young, frolicked  on pristine deserted beaches and foraged  for food with not a  saddle or fence in sight. The horses have enjoyed the  protections afforded by Cape Lookout National Seashore in  cooperation with the  Foundation for Shackleford Horses dedicated to maintaining the animals’ way of life. The Crystal Coast provides the chance to dine on “fresh from the docks” seafood caught the same day in clean, North Carolina coastal waters with the Carteret Catch program — a joint venture between local restaurants, retailers and the fishing  industry,  guaranteeing fresh seasonal seafood caught by local fishermen. Along with award-winning chefs, this eco-friendly approach makes for a distinctive wedding plate. From waters of crystalline purity bordering sandy, sparkling beaches, a towering lighthouse and a herd of wild Mustang horses, to the charming setting of famous Nicholas Sparks’ romance novels “A Walk to Remember” and “The Choice” — the Crystal Coast is an exceptional destination to celebrate an fairy tail romance.

Tree City Plants 200 New Trees

C

ome on spring! (With my fingers crossed! As I write this in January it’s 70 degrees outside and I’m hoping it’s still 70 degrees outside when you read this! Spring will roll in and we’ll find out “the rest of the story” from our visitor in September last year that came for a visit and seemed to have taken up residence in a summer home. The more trees bloom with flowers the better off we’ll all be. Also, as this edition of the Island Review hits the streets, we should be finishing up planting our first 200 trees from our 2019 – Year of the Tree campaign. This is very exciting for every property owner in PKS! There are several people I want to give all of the credit for this project. First, after the storm, we had a donation of $5,000 to our town, then I heard from a town resident, Chris Freeman, that he and I had the same idea of planting “a lot” of trees! He contacted our friends at The National Arbor Day Foundation, who eventually donated $5,000 to our cause. He managed the ordering of the trees for the campaigns also. Another volunteer that helped to the ”extreme” for our town is Steve Felch, recently appointed chair of our Community Appearance Commission. He took the orders and went to the individual properties to put in flags where the trees were to be planted. Then he, and our Super Hero Sonny Cunningham, called “811” to mark our planting flags for underground utilities. The volunteers from the CAC helped

Without advertising your business here, the message you are sending is...

organize the planting of the right trees in the right places. The potential for something going wrong with so many moving parts was huge, but they overcame the odds and got the job done. Staff involvement was very supportive and “all over” making this project work. I mentioned Sonny Cunningham, who is always thinking of the best for Pine Knoll Shores! Sarah Williams, our town clerk, smartly organizing our three prongs between the National Arbor Day Foundation, the state Forestry Service and our local campaign. Our town manager, Brian Kramer, made sure that this whole campaign was operating effectively and our every move was headed in the right direction for the big picture campaign. I want to say “THANK YOU!” to everyone that made this campaign a huge success! This is yet more proof that when we work together for a common goal, we make it happen! I am very proud to have worked with this team to make our town so rich with trees and the “Tree City USA” we are known for. Before this storm hit us, we had built up the town’s fund balance enough so we didn’t need any outside help. Thank you Julie Anderson, our finance director, for putting us in a position that we were able to meet the needs of our town to recover. My final point is that we all make a great team! We have the best people in place to conquer anything as long as we work together. One Team, One Town, One Pine Knoll Shores!

club news PKS Garden Club The members of the PKS Garden Club have had a busy fall season. In addition to cleaning up their own gardens in the wake of Hurricane Florence, the club spent the October meeting cleaning up the town gardens and “putting them to bed” for the winter. At the November meeting, several club members demonstrated Christmas crafts and thoughtfully provided written instructions. Donna Belanger showed everyone how she constructs Christmas bows; using wired ribbon helps. JoAnn Shallcross showed off her beautiful memorial tree and demonstrated how she made it. She started with several tiers of children’s small alphabet blocks, mounted on a turntable. She tucked all sorts of small holiday memorabilia in between the blocks for a festive display. Jean McDanal demonstrated a simple snowman wall hangings. Susan King demo’d a “debris tree” using crepe myrtle and magnolia leaves that had been spray painted in gold and silver. On Veteran’s Day, the group rededicated the Blue Star Memorial on Salter Path Road with a lighting ceremony. Several of the town’s many veterans spoke. After the ceremony, we adjourned to the town hall for a wine and cheese party, attended by close to a hundred people. In late November, Martha and Clark Edwards once again drove to the Mistletoe Meadows Christmas Tree farm in the western mountains and took delivery of more than 200 fresh green wreaths for the club’s annual fundraiser. The club sells the beautiful wreaths for a modest price; they were distributed on Nov. 29. At that time, many of Donna’s bows were sold. In December, about 20 club members worked for 1½ hours, quickly producing over 100 swags. Martha and Clark Edwards had scoured the area to find branches of Frazer fir for use. Greenery was donated by The Fishstrong Foundation and The Market at Cedar Point. Donna made all of the bows for these swags. Later that day, three groups drove up and down the Pine Knoll Shores section of Salter Path Road and hung swags on each street sign, then decorated it with one of Donna’s red bows. A different group went to Beaufort to decorate the Cape Lookout National Seashore Visitor’s Center on Front Street, in what used to be the Post Office building. This is the second year club members have decorated the building in time for Beaufort’s Candlelight Tour. This project began with a request from Kathleen O’Grady, a ranger with the Cape Lookout National Seashore. The annual Holiday Luncheon was held on Dec. 12 at the Country Club of the Crystal Coast. Members played games, held raffles and distributed door prizes while enjoying delicious food and festive decorations and piano music by Cathi Turner. They also collected 15 grocery bags full of nonperishable food donations for Martha’s Mission. Generous cash donations were collected for Caroline’s House, the local domestic violence shelter. On Jan. 9, the club enjoyed a program entitled Flexman for the Birds by local photographer Bill Flexman. He captured each image with an artist’s eye. He showcased local birds, and everyone was amazed by how many birds either lived here year round, or, like the cedar waxwings, migrated through our area in February, stripping our hollies and pyracanthas of their bright red berries. 56

ISLAND REVIEW • March 2019

The audience was alert as he shared his images. Some of us disputed that these birds were ever seen in our area. He threw in a few that weren’t just to see if we were paying attention. He showed us a photo or an Audubon Oriole, making a rare appearance. This oriole is native to Texas In February, club members are set to attend the annual meeting of the Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners at the Crystal Coast Civic Center. The PKS Garden Club holds meetings on the second Wednesday of the month at town hall, unless they are having a special outing. They meet at 9:30am for social time with light refreshments, followed by a program at 10am. A business meeting follows the program. All members of Pine Knoll Shores are welcome to join the club, and guests are always welcome. For further information, email pksgardenclub@ gmail.com or find them on Facebook, at www.facebook.com/ PineKnollShoresGardenClub. Jan Corsello & Charlotte Hamilton

PKS Women’s Club In January, the club welcomed Kathryn Hudson who is a Reiki Master-teacher, author and speaker based in Europe who has an off-season presence in Emerald Isle. After 22 years as an international banker, Kathryn’s life path veered sharply toward the spiritual in 2006. For the last decade, Kathryn has practiced and taught the art of Reiki; a practice of personal and energetic well-being. Reike is now valued by the traditional medical community in the US . Certain hospitals, like Columbia, now hire Reiki parishioners, as the work is now recognized to accelerate recuperation after surgical procedures. Kathryn taught club members some basic practices and everyone enjoyed an initial experience of the energy it provides, finding it easy and relaxing. Kathryn offers REIKI sessions and teaches Reiki classes internationally, in New York and North Carolina. She has written several books in French and is now looking for a publisher in the US. Bonnie Ferneau organized a group of club members to take part in the annual “Penguin Plunge” in Atlantic Beach on Jan. 1. This event raised money for Mile of Hope, an organization that offers young cancer patients a weekend at the beach. They and their families will enjoy various activities, with a day at the beach and a sand castle building contest. The event is held annually on Mother’s day weekend. On the first night of the event, club members will register the participants and help them enjoy a buffet dinner, after which they can do crafts. On Saturday the members will serve the hot dog lunch and enjoy time with the families. The Women’s Club raises money each year to be used for donations. The scholarship recipient this year is Rachel Lehman, in her second year studying respiratory therapy. PKS Women’s Club membership is open to all women in Pine Knoll Shores. Monthly meetings are held on the third Friday of each month at town hall. Social time and refreshments begin at 9:30am, followed by a speaker at 10am. Visitors are always welcome. Jan Corsello

garden gate Selecting the Right Fertilizer

F

or plants to truly flourish, the right growing conditions and soil that offers the right nutrients is of paramount importance. Fertilizer enhances soil so that plants and flowers can thrive. However, fertilizer is not a one-size-fits-all mix. Choosing fertilizer can be a little overwhelming thanks to the variety of formulations available at neighborhood lawn and garden centers. Shelves contain all-purpose products, such as those billed as vegetable fertilizer, and even formulations geared toward specific flower varieties. Others may feature buzz words like “all-natural” or “organic,” and consumers may not be sure just what they need to keep plants healthy. The following guidelines can help any would-be gardener or landscaper grow more vibrant plants. Start with a soil test – It’s difficult to determine what plants need without an accurate picture of what’s going on in the ground. A soil test can paint a picture of what’s going on and indicate if any nutrients are lacking. A common misconception is that gardeners fertilize plants. But fertilizer amends the soil that feeds plants, according to the soil-testing lab professionals at Virginia Tech. Soil types vary by region, and conditions may even vary between spots on a landscape. Testing where the plants will be placed can yield the most accurate results. Soil tests are available at gardening centers and online. Otherwise, landscaping professionals can conduct tests. Know the N-P-K ratio – Most fertilizers will come with information concerning the nutrients within. Most notably it will have a breakdown of how much nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P) and potassium (K) is in

the mix. Judging by the soil test, gardeners can choose a product that will give them the right ratio to amend the soil for the type of plant they are hoping to grow. Complete fertilizers often have NPK in the formulation. Incomplete fertilizers may have only one or two nutrients. This allows a person to customize fertilizer even more without overdoing it with a particular nutrient. Grow plant knowledge – A cursory knowledge of the plants being planted in the garden also can be helpful. Gardeners must recognize that some plants will not tolerate excess amounts of a particular fertilizer component, while some may need more. Checking books out of the library, seeking information online and consulting with landscaping experts will help expand homeowners’ knowledge about plant types and the needs of each particular plant they hope to grow. Solid and liquid fertilizer – Fertilizers are generally sold in pellets, spikes and liquid forms. Pellets or granules are dispersed over large areas and will gradually offer nutrients when the soil is watered. Liquid fertilizer is concentrated and fast-acting. These may be used for container plants or smaller areas. Spikes usually are placed in houseplants or to feed individual trees or shrubs. Depending on the formulation, fertilizer may need to be reapplied once a month or more. Consult the product packaging for the correct application advice. Fertilizer amends soil to grow stronger, more resilient plants.

MARCH ARIES (March 21-April 20)

LEO (July 23-August 23)

SAGITTARIUS (November 23-December 21)

Aries, there’s always ample opportunity to learn from past mistakes. You can make amends for previous miscues this month when you’re reunited with someone from the past. Your thoughts and actions may be spurred on by your emotions. It may be better to wait to make decisions until things quiet down. One great thing about your personality – you are always receptive to innovative ideas. You may feel inspired to try out many new things this month. Catalog those that make you happy. You might have to make a few concessions in the shortterm if you are eager to make real progress in the long-term. Eventually all things will even out.

The good will you demonstrate will come around in time, Leo. Continue to be generous and help others whenever possible. Karma is on your side. Friends are lining up to be helpful over the next few days. Take advantage of their generosity, especially if you find yourself feeling under the weather. You have carte blanche to hibernate for a while mid-month if you feel you need some alone time. But try to put your selfimposed exile to some good use around the house. There are a few ways a situation at work can go. Not every path may meet with your utmost approval. But you may have to swallow your pride and compromise.

Sagittarius, you may be eager to step into a new job right when another is finished. While this can be good for productivity, make sure you avoid burnout. Your inclination to meet the needs of others this month is commendable. Just be sure your generosity does not come at the expense of your own well-being. You are always ready to take on more. This month you may have to set some limits or you may burn out. An adventure with a BFF is doable. Your perseverance is a source of inspiration to others. Don’t be bashful when others share these thoughts with you. Accept their well wishes and give thanks.

TAURUS (April 21-May 21)

VIRGO (August 24-September 22)

Others seem to be feeding you information on a need-to-know basis. This may be frustrating, Taurus. But a little extra patience is required for the time being. You could be in for a roller coaster ride this month, especially as it pertains to spending. Money could fly out of your wallet faster than you can earn it. Exercise caution. You might need to turn off the logical part of your mind for a little while. Let your fantasies run wild. Trying to manage everything down to the minute detail can short-circuit your brain. Put exercise to the forefront of your list of things to do as your schedule allows. If you have not been physically active lately, work slowly and diligently to build up your endurance.

It is not easy to admit when you are wrong. When the need to do so arises, be gracious and offer your apologies in a heartfelt way that will resonate with others. The personalized touches you put on any project will showcase your personality and passion. Think about embracing a crafty task to really display your talents. Don’t be afraid of pointing the spotlight on yourself this month for a change. Then enjoy the rush that comes from it. If illness has been going around, do your best to avoid getting sick. Be diligent in handwashing and other preventive measures.

Capricorn, sometimes you are acutely aware of details that others readily miss. This trait comes in handy when you are asked to advise others. There is nothing wrong with seeing the world through rose-colored glasses from time to time. Such a positive perspective might change your outlook for good. It is possible to accomplish much in stressful situations. But sometimes you don’t realize when you need to take a step back. This is the time. Hold tight to those friends who have your best interests at heart through happy and trying situations. These are the people you can call upon this month.

GEMINI (May 22-June 21) Gemini, the need to delegate will present itself throughout the month. Don’t take on more than you can handle. Trust that those around you are up to the task. As long as you have a solid team in your corner, you can adapt well to the changing environment. However, even a superhero needs a break from time to time. A truckload of new ideas is coming your way. These may serve as catalysts for new hobbies, projects and even developing new friendships along the way. Important decisions cannot be made in a matter of minutes. You really have to work through all the angles. Seek opinions from trusted friends.

CANCER (June 22-July 22) The image that you project can be much more important than the work you actually do. Have a good public relations team in your corner. Overcome your resistance and listen to another person’s side of the story. Embrace letting this person take the lead on something at work or in your home life. You may not be entirely sure what’s holding you up mid-month. But once you put your finger on it, you’ll be able to work through the issues that much more readily. Make a list of things you need to accomplish this week. If not you are bound to forget something. 64

ISLAND REVIEW • March 2019

LIBRA (September 23-October 23) Libra, support is a two-way street. If you boost the confidence of a friend or loved one, in return he or she may help you in big ways. Work as a team to foster communication. On the surface, it may seem like you have your act all together. But beneath your emotions may be roiling. You may want to let some close people in on your secrets. Home is definitely where the heart is, especially this month. Spend as much quality time as you can with loved ones in the days to come. Find a cozy spot to read and unwind as well. Even the most doting parents can use some down time once in a while, Libra. Plan an adults-only date night and enjoy some welldeserved conversation.

SCORPIO (October 24-November 22) Take a step back from the rush and pressure that has surrounded you lately. You can use the rest to clear your mind. This break will help you tackle new things. So many things hinge upon balance, Scorpio. Make a concerted effort to balance things in your life. You may have to make some changes and experiment. Might you be so fixated on a problem that you’re overlooking the simplest solutions? Take a step back and refocus. The answer might be simpler than you think. Illnesses or medical obstacles can have many sources – from the foods you eat to your emotional wellness.

CAPRICORN (December 22-January 20)

AQUARIUS (January 21-February 18) It is important to be self-aware of the way you communicate with others. Pushing too hard might shut some people off. Adjust your approach accordingly. You are adept at staying on track when you need to, Aquarius. This makes you an ideal fitness guru. Try to inspire others to be regimented as well. A long-held belief might be holding you back or preventing you from moving forward. Once you let it go, you’ll feel emancipated and ready to take a step in the right direction. For so long you have been doling out advice to other people and helping them improve their lives. Now you are the one who could benefit from some counsel.

PISCES (February 19-March 20) Psychic feelings are pronounced early in the month. Try to hone in on what these sensations are attempting to tell you. Do your best to honor requests from friends, associates and family this month. If you pull it off, take some time to recharge. A bad mood need not dictate how you approach the day or even the month ahead. Call up a friend, join hands with family members and beat the funk together. A recent birthday celebration could have you feeling like you need to make drastic changes. But small changes can fit the bill as well.
