Arts by the Sea Art, storytelling, sand and wine are all components of this yearâ€™s Swansboro Arts by the Sea, scheduled for 9am on Saturday, June 14 on the downtown waterfront. Artisans will line the streets with pottery, jewelry, paintings, stained glass, fiber, carvings, photography, sculpture, metal work and more. The juried show represents some of the finest crafters from North and South Carolina, Virginia and more. Art is also showcased through the talents of people at this event, so expect belly dancing, martial arts and choral groups performing from 10am-3pm. Big Frank, storyteller, singer and songwriter, is on hand for stories and songs about his travels and life experiences. Ed Moore, a sand sculptor, and his popular team Sandy Feat will sculpt an exclusive creation designed for the festival. As a child, Moore would spend hours in a sand pile behind his Raleigh home. Though he grew up to be an architect, he never gave up his pastime. He formed the professional sand-sculpting team 22 years ago. The team will transform eight tons of sand donated by Morton Trucking of Jacksonville from the ground up beginning at 9am. As the afternoon comes to a close and the shopping is complete, the festival continues into the evening with the Wine Tasting Gallery from 5-8pm, sponsored by the Emerald Isle Wine Market. The wine tasting tent will be located on (Cont. on page 10)

56 Years of Big Rock For 56 years, the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament has drawn droves of spectators and media to the Morehead City waterfront. Visitors and residents visit shops and restaurants downtown while waiting for an angler to catch the top prize, a blue marlin. While prizes are still awarded for game fish such as mahi mahi, tuna and wahoo, the blue marlin weigh-ins are what draws the crowds to the bleachers and the streets to see who is at the top of the leader board and in the running for the purse, which annually tops $1 million. 10

With so many different places to catch the fireworks along the Crystal Coast, it’s best to plan ahead. From concerts to parades, there’s plenty to do leading up to the main event, spectacular fireworks. Morehead City Parks and Recreation Dept. added an additional date to the Concert in the Park summer series for Friday, July 4 featuring The Main Event Band. From 78:30pm, the tunes will be flowing well ahead of the fireworks, giving visitors the chance to be entertained while grabbing a great seat at Jaycee Park for the nighttime event. The Morehead City fireworks are set to go off at 9pm and can be enjoyed from any vantage point on the waterfront. It’s best to arrive early to get a good spot.
Beaufort takes an old-fashioned approach to the holidays with families, businesses and clubs taking to the street for the annual Fourth of July parade. Line the streets and watch the patriotic floats at 11am then head to the Carteret County Courthouse for free ice cream and music. The fireworks begin at 9pm and are sponsored by Front Street Village. The family affair is held at the NC Maritime Museum’s Gallants Channel Annex off West Beaufort Road. This event includes food and beverage vendors, with all proceeds benefitting the Beaufort Fireman’s Association. Along Bogue Banks, Atlantic Beach and Emerald Isle host fireworks displays. Atlantic Beach holds its display at the Circle, with parking around the circle, in the CAMA lot on West Boardwalk, the dirt lot north of Atlantic Boulevard and the paved lot to the south as well as the grassy lot on the 100 block of East Bogue. The town recommends car pooling, walking or biking to help with traffic congestion. The celebration starts at 9pm and should be seen from nearby oceanfront locations and neighborhoods. The Emerald Isle Fireworks are launched off the Bogue Inlet Pier. Parking is available at the pier and along Hwy 58. The display begins at 9pm and should be visible from Bogue Sound and the Intracoastal Waterway.
Tiny Tots Triathlon Cheer on tiny tots in a tiny triathlon as the Emerald Isle Parks and Recreation Dept. hosts its Tiny Tots Triathlon.

Pig Kahuna Pirates
“Best Beach Games” which came out in the last year. It is full of ideas for fun on the sand.
By Jennifer Sattler
Duck and Goose Go to the Beach
Fergus and Dink are pigs. In the little book “Pig Kahuna” they discover the world of surfing. The follow up “Pig Kahuna Pirates” is clever because the two little surfers are again at the beach where they dig up a pirate hat. They try to build a sand castle in the shape of a pirate ship. “Aaarrrgh!” – the adventure continues as the piglet brothers raise their pirate flag. When Dink has a temper tantrum he finds life can be challenging on the beach. Brotherly love is the guiding theme and beach play is the storyline. It is so neat when they name their surfboard “Dave” in the first book. Parents and grandparents can find many other colorful beach related books to help young ones enhance their imaginations such as: Jim Carrey’s “How Roland Rolls,” Kristy Dempsey’s “Surfer Chick” and “If You Want to See a Whale” by Julie Fogliano. Also families might enjoy Barry Coleman’s

There are a number of excellent new children’s books which have coastal themes. “Duck and Goose Go to the Beach” is the latest addition to the very popular Duck and Goose series by Tad Hills. These two friends decide to take a trip and end up at the ocean. The artwork is fantastic and the picture of the two characters getting their first look at the beach over a sand dune is a treasure. Then Duck dips his hot feet in the water and is rolled by a wave. They meet a variety of creatures, build a drip castle, and relax on the sand. This is an excellent book for younger children, and the expressions are wonderfully charming.

Have You Hugged a Tourist Today? LIVING IN THE paradise we love – the barrier island beach towns, the colonial town of Beaufort, the villages of Down East and the thriving port city of Morehead – we sometimes forget to offer our thanks and praise for our travelers, our tourists, our rental guests who fill our vacation homes to capacity during summer’s peak occupancy. I recently read an inspirational story about Juan Mann who described himself as a lonely, friendless tourist in his own hometown of Sydney, Australia until he decided to grab a marker and a poster, made a sign saying “Free Hugs” and stood at a busy intersection and began offering hugs to strangers (read his story at www.freehugscampaign.org). While not advocating actually grabbing and hugging every tourist to the Crystal Coast you encounter, I do believe it is our duty to delight our visitors by enthusiastically welcoming them at each opportunity. On a beautiful, late April afternoon I found myself enjoying a lingering lunch at a sunny sidewalk table at the Beaufort Grocery (I highly recommend the shrimp salad and sweet potato chips). Seated next to me were four women eagerly discussing their plans for their girlfriend getaway. Our tables were so close it was impossible not to eavesdrop and I smiled thinking of how exhilarating it is for me when I travel with dear friends. At a break in their conversation I leaned in and asked,
“So, where’s home for you ladies?” They eagerly shared their hometowns in Pennsylvania and New York; I introduced myself as a local gal from Emerald Isle and thus began the conversational equivalent of a hug. They were foodies and life-long friends and soon we were discussing my favorite restaurants, little shops and interesting museums. We don’t often get the opportunity in life to have that moment when we are the most expert voice in the room, but when you are the local gal or guy sharing all your favorites on the Crystal Coast you, too, will have that sweet recognition. Lunch was soon over and I returned to my walk around Beaufort on a perfect April day, but it felt good knowing I had done a small part in reinforcing our reputation as North Carolinians being the friendliest of peoples. Tourist season is upon us folks and you will each have these same encounters of someone who looks lost and needs directions, a tired parent with small children that may need a smile and you saying how well behaved and adorable they are or, like me, sharing your favorite secret spots and notable local chefs. Some years back I first saw the regrettable bumper stickers, “If it’s tourist season, why can’t we shoot ‘em”. On the Crystal Coast let’s make our guests feel true Southern hospitality. We prefer, “It’s tourist season, we’re glad you’re here. We want you to have the most memorable vacation of your life!” Smile, hug or just have a friendly little conversation with a tourist today.

ISLAND REVIEW • June 2014
Prepare for Battle:School Start Date is Under Assault THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY members returned to session on May 14 … and trouble is already brewing in Raleigh. State Sen. Norman Sanderson told members of the Carteret County Chamber of Commerce who attended the organization’s annual Legislative Luncheon on April 25 that North Carolina’s Uniform School Calendar Law is likely to be challenged, once again. It may not come up in this year’s “short session,” he said, but it is sure to be a “contentious” issue in 2015. The current law mandates that the first day of class for public school students in North Carolina will be on the Monday closest to Aug. 26. However, legislators are getting a lot of pressure and heat to give local school districts the flexibility to set their own calendars and determine when school starts. This, of course, is extraordinarily troublesome to tourismbased businesses that depend on revenues earned during the summer season. Mary Duane Hale of Atlantic Beach Realty and a member of the Chamber’s Board of Directors asked: What is your position, Senator? He responded that “more leeway and flexibility” would be a good thing for the schools. He suggested that the state set some “parameters.” “We can’t leave it wide open or make it too flexible, but I believe we can find some middle

ground that we all can live with.” “We don’t like the sound of that,” said Mary Carlyle Brown of Realty World First Coast Realty, who chairs the Chamber’s Public & Government Affairs Committee. “We need to heed his warning and start getting our message out to influence legislators … and once again ‘Save Our Summers.’ “The legislators apparently don’t have a very good grip on the economics of the tourism industry,” Brown said. “Tourism is the golden goose. Tourism generates tax revenues that help fund public education in North Carolina. Shortening summer vacations is not the answer. “We need second homeowners, and those especially who rent their properties, to join us and help persuade their legislators back home to ‘oppose any changes to the School Calendar Law that would move the start date any earlier in August or grant local school districts unnecessary waivers,’” Brown said. “The chamber will be pulling out all the stops, in conjunction with the Crystal Coast Tourism Authority, of course, and individual tourism leaders to plead our case. Our local legislators need to hear from readers as well.” Contact state Sen. Norman Sanderson at Norman. Sanderson@ncleg.net and state Rep. Pat McElraft at Pat. McElraft@ncleg.net.

Contribute to our Alphabetical ‘Vacation Guide’ WE’RE INVITING SUGGESTIONS for “The Crystal Coast from A to Z.” The idea is to promote Carteret County with 26 good reasons to come and “spend a weekend … or a forevermore.” A could be for Aquarium. The NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores is everybody’s favorite attraction on Bogue Banks. Exhibits are always changing with plenty of special programming and activities for families to enjoy. Watch the playful river otters and check on “Nimbus,” the white loggerhead sea turtle who is growing up fast. C could be for Croatan National Forest. It occupies a big chunk of western Carteret County. It is one of only four National Forests in North Carolina, with more than 160,000 acres of pine forests, saltwater estuaries, bogs and raised swamps called pocosins. You’ll find deer, black bears, turkeys, wading birds, ospreys and alligators. Canoeing and fishing are popular on blackwater creeks and saltwater marshes. Hikers, campers and hunters will encounter an amazing collection of bugs and poisonous snakes. Park literature contains the sentence: “It is perhaps not a forest suited for everyone.” F could be for Fort Macon State Park. Located at the eastern end of the road (Hwy 58) on Bogue Banks, Fort Macon is the most visited state park in North Carolina. Enjoy the public beach, the old fort itself and the spectacular Coastal Education and Visitor Center. Civil War reenactments are coming up on July 19 & 20 and Sept. 20 & 21. Summer concerts at the fort on Friday evenings are free. Check the schedule at www.friendsoffortmacon.org. K could be for Kites. The Carolina Kite Fest is coming up on Oct. 25 & 26, at the Circle in Atlantic Beach. The sky will be full of

spectacular colors and giant kites of all shapes. There will be an abundance of activities for children. Admission is free and no vendors will be on site – just the wind, sand and colorful kites. The event is sponsored by Kites Unlimited & Bird Stuff, Etc. Visit the store in the Atlantic Station Shopping Center in Atlantic Beach for more details … and to learn how to go fly a kite. O could be for the Outer Banks Wildlife Shelter. The facility is located off Hwy 24, a bit west of Morehead City. Known locally as OWLS, it’s a nonprofit wildlife hospital where injured, sick and orphaned native North Carolina wildlife is cared for in a professional and compassionate manner. Thousands of animals are admitted to the clinic each year, rehabilitated and released back into the wild. Visitors are welcome to meet “permanent residents” that cannot survive on their own and tour the facility, which includes an education center and small gift shop. On Aug. 2, OWLS sponsors “Sculpt for Wildlife,” a family-fun sand sculpting contest on the beach at the Atlantis Lodge in Pine Knoll Shores. It’s audience-participation time. Send us your 26 letter-perfect choices to promote the Crystal Coast as North Carolina’s recreation destination. It’s a clean slate. Address your email message to email@example.com. A distinguished panel of etymologists, linguists and lexicographers will help make the selection. Get creative. Mike Wagoner, President Carteret County Chamber of Commerce
Looking Forward to Summer Concerts I WAS PRIVILEGED to attend the DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) graduation at White Oak Elementary School recently. I was so proud of the leadership of the Emerald Isle Police Dept. Special thanks to Officer Sandra DeLorme who was the leader and to our Chief Jeff Waters. The fifth graders were so proud of their achievements and I would personally like to thank Officer DeLorme for her excellent leadership. The parents of the fifth graders were so thankful to Emerald Isle for its leadership in the DARE course. It was truly a wonderful evening!

The new course will include helpful information about the town’s programs, how to prepare for your beach visit, warning flags and what they mean, rip current identification and survival, spinal injury prevention, lightning safety, potentially harmful aquatic life and more. The course is designed for beach visitors of all ages, and is free of charge to everyone.

FY 14-15 Recommended Budget to Be Presented in May
The town’s FY 14-15 Recommended Budget will be presented to the board of commissioners at its May 13 regular meeting. The board will review and deliberate over the budget during May and June, and is expected to adopt the new budget at its June 10 meeting. The FY 14-15 Recommended Budget will maintain the town’s current property tax rate for all taxpayers, and will provide sufficient funding to maintain the town’s service levels and quality. The entire town organization, from the town staff to the town manager to the mayor and commissioners, works very hard to provide the highest quality town services at the lowest possible cost. The FY 14-15 Recommended Budget is available at www.emeraldisle-nc.org.
Emerald Isle’s “Second Helping” to Collect Food
Visitors: Please don’t throw your remaining food away at the end of your vacation! Instead, please donate your leftover food to help those less fortunate! Volunteers will collect canned goods, foodstuffs, perishables & nonperishables (even open containers) at two convenient locations on your way out of Emerald Isle. Drop-off sites are near Bert’s Surf Shop (corner of Islander Drive and Hwy 58) and near Holiday TravLPark (corner of Coast Guard Road and Reed Drive). Volunteers will collect food each Saturday morning from 7am-noon from June 14-Sept. 1. The “Second Helping” crew will distribute all food to local food banks and soup kitchens in our surrounding area. For more information, visit www.asecondhelping-emeraldisle.com.
Town’s Bicycle Path Network Officially Named
Acting on a request from the town’s Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee, the board of commissioners formally named the town’s popular bicycle path network as the “Emerald Path” at its April meeting. Upon completion of two segments currently under construction, the Emerald Path will extend approximately 11 miles from the Indian Beach town limits all the way to The Point at Bogue Inlet. The Emerald Path provides an alternative means of transportation to reach the town’s commercial areas, a relaxing recreational amenity, and a safe exercise area for walkers, runners and bicyclists. We are pleased to finally complete the Emerald Path through the entire Town!
Weekly Rides on the Emerald Path
Beginning Tuesday, May 6 at 5:30pm and every Tuesday thereafter (weather permitting) the Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee invites you to meet at Hwy 58 Bicycles for an informal ride on the Emerald Path. Riders can go as far ... or as little as they like; all ages and skill levels are welcome and encouraged to enjoy the community’s expanded path. The only thing you need is a bicycle and a 24

Town Considers Commercial Slips at Public Boating Access
The Town is currently considering the creation of up to 10 town-managed rental slips for commercial operations only at the Emerald Isle Public Boating Access Area. The slips would be available to those offering commercial recreational opportunities, including charter fishing, sightseeing cruises, boat rentals, kayak and paddleboard equipment and any other recreational opportunities for our visitors. No residential slips will be available. The town is currently pursuing permits for the creation of the new slips and will be working on this issue over the next several months. For more information, please contact Town Manager Frank Rush at email@example.com or 252-354-3424.

Town ordinances require that all unattended beach equipment (tents, canopies, chairs, volleyball nets, etc.) be removed from the beach between 7pm and 8am daily, and town staff regularly enforces this ordinance. The penalty for leaving unattended beach equipment out overnight is confiscation, so please make sure you remove all unattended beach equipment at the end of the day. Oceanfront property owners ONLY are eligible for two exception permits, and these exception permits can be obtained by visiting (7509 Emerald Drive) or calling (252-354-3424) the town administration building during normal business hours. (Due to beach nourishment and property ownership issues, no exception permits are available for oceanfront property owners located east of the 3000 block.

Reminder – Yard Debris Collection Procedures
The town’s yard debris collection program continues to be heavily utilized by our property owners, and we expect recordbreaking volumes during May and June. Town crews will be working seven days a week to collect yard debris, and your patience is greatly appreciated. It is no longer necessary to call in to be placed on the collection list. Town staff now makes a continuous pass through all streets in the town and our goal is to collect from every area at least once per week. If you place yard debris near the street, town staff should automatically pick up the debris within one week. With the busy season at hand, it may take a few extra days to get everyone, but it will be collected as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience!

Gardening ... Rid Your Yard of
Pesky Pests SPRING IS THE season when lawn and garden equipment is dusted off, windows are washed and homes are aired out. Spring also is a great time to get started on lawn and garden projects, including an inspection of the yard for any property damage or problems, including pests. Small animals like groundhogs can compromise lawn and garden projects. For example, vegetable gardens are prime targets for such pests, while trees and shrubbery offer cozy abodes and camouflage from other predators. Homeowners can grow frustrated by the damage such critters can do to their properties. But identifying the offenders early on can minimize that damage.
Groundhogs are one of 14 species of marmots and are the largest members of the squirrel family. They frequent the areas where woodlands meet open spaces, like streams, roads or fields. Groundhogs feed on grass, plants, fruit and tree bark. They also will feast on home gardens during the summer and fall seasons. Groundhogs are most active during the warm months, when they forage and feast to build up large reserves for winter hibernation. Humane methods of keeping groundhogs at bay include making the area inhospitable. Groundhogs can climb trees and fencing, but they’re less likely to get into plants if there is a fence around them. Dogs can be preventive as well, as some dogs will chase groundhogs off of the property. The scent of urine can also scare groundhogs off. Using traps to capture and then relocate groundhogs is another option.
Moles are cylindrical mammals that are most comfortable living a subterranean lifestyle. The fur of moles feels similar to velvet, and they have small ears and eyes. Moles also have strong forelimbs with forepaws that have an extra thumb and multiple joints. These help them to burrow underground effectively and hollow out subterranean chambers. The diet of moles is primarily earthworms and 32

While there are traps and if there is a poisons available, one of the easiest ways to prevent mole infestation is to remove fence around their sources of food. Homeowners also them. can cut back on watering property and get rid of grubs and other insects. Also, consider installing a mole barrier of aluminum sheeting or hardware cloth by burying these materials between two and three feet deep along the perimeter of a lawn or garden. Cats are natural enemies of moles, so sprinkling cat litter around mole runs may dissuade moles from visiting the area.
Often mistaken for mice, voles are small rodents with shorter, hairier tails and more stout bodies than mice. Voles are commonly referred to as meadow or field mice, and they feed on small plants and will eat nuts, fruits and even dead animals. Voles will frequently eat succulent root systems and burrow under lawns and gardens. The runways of voles will be shallow, so they aren’t prevalent in frequently cultivated soils. They are also less likely to burrow beneath frequently mowed lawns. Voles do not like open areas. Remove protection like weeds, tall grass, dense vegetation and heavy mulch to make a yard a less popular habitat. Keep grass adjacent to flower beds or gardens mowed short. If groundhogs, moles and voles become particularly troublesome or infest a yard in great numbers, an exterminator may be needed.

As the third oldest town in the state, Beaufort is home to more than 200 homes in the National Registered Historic District that are more than a century old, and several private residences that are more than 200 years old. The Beaufort Historical Association sets aside one weekend every June to show off the picturesque seaport town and the history that calls this area home. The 54th annual Beaufort Old Homes & Gardens Tour is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, June 27-28. For the eleventh time, the Old Homes and Gardens Tour has been named a recipient of the Southeast Tourism Society’s Top 20 Events for June 2014. This prestigious award includes events like the Kentucky Derby, the International Cherry Blossom Festival in Georgia and Beaufort Wine & Food Weekend. From small cottages to double-porched homes, this year’s tour features 11 private homes, 10 gardens and artist studios, as well as plein-aire artists around town. New this year is a vintage Airstream trailer completely decorated. The restored buildings on the Beaufort Historic Site will be open both days with docents in period dress. Other popular events include an antique car show, an opening concert by the Carteret Chorale and narrated tours of the Beaufort Historic District aboard the association’s vintage English double-decker bus. 34

charm of Beaufort’s waterfront town and stunning coastal landscape through the eyes of a visitor. His painting, “MC Thomas House, Beaufort, NC,” is featured on this year’s fine art poster and will be used in marketing and promotional materials for the event. The “Men Who Cook” party coincides with the release of the second volume of the “Beaufort Cooks” cookbook, a compilation of dishes from the local men of Beaufort. During this special event, several of these men will be on hand as guest chefs to prepare delicious tastings of the recipes included in the cookbook. This party also serves to thank the homeowners and garden owners who work hard to get their homes and gardens ready for the tour that showcases Beaufort each year. “The first cookbook was very popular as a gift or keepsake because of the artwork as well as the recipes, so we wanted to do another one with a different twist,” said Tour Committee Chair Katherine Bland. “The men in our town are very proud of their cooking. Many of their favorite recipes are ‘highly improvised,’ so

this is the first time some of the recipes were actually written down.” Tickets for the party are $30 and can be purchased by calling 252-728-5225 or online at www.beauforthistoricsite. org. Held in conjunction with the homes tour, the Antiques Show and Sale is scheduled for June 27-29, with more than 40 dealers from throughout the Southeast, displaying furniture, silver, crystal, jewelry, linens, dolls and much more. The show is held at the Crystal Coast Civic Center in Morehead City and offers three days of great antiquing to fit any budget. With such a wide range of dealers offering treasures and collectibles of all types, from fine china to vintage jewelry to refurbished one-of-a-kind furniture pieces, there is truly something for everyone. A Gourmet Tea Room will be open during the show and will offer specialty sandwiches provided by Amos Mosquito’s Restaurant, Beaufort Grocery Co. and the Spouter Inn, beverages and a variety of homemade desserts. This annual event gives visitors the chance to find out more about the wonderful history of Beaufort with most wanting to return for more. Tickets for the Old Homes & Gardens Tour are $18 in advance and $20 at the door, and the Antiques Show and Sale tickets are $7 and good for all three days. Combination tickets for both the tour and the antique show are available for $21 in advance and $24 the days of the events.

at the AQUARIUM BIG News! TRAVEL BACK TO the days of dinosaurs and hear them roar! The aquarium’s Marsh Boardwalk becomes a time machine for the summer of 2014. Let Dinosaur Adventure and your imaginations take you back millions of years. The fierce allosaurus, the long-necked apatosaurus and other bygone beasts seemingly come to life as you approach.
You might want to duck when you pass the dilophosaurus – it spits. Don’t let the tyrannosaurus-rex out front scare you – it’s stuck. Strike a pose with it for your next post. Dinosaur Adventure features several species of lifesized, realistic, animatronics creatures, most of them from the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. Enjoy this experience free with admission or membership, but don’t wait too long. The dinosaurs make their comeback only from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend.
Remember When Inspired by the dinosaurs, Way-Back Wednesdays also take a peek into the prehistoric past. A morning stingray feeding, animal encounters and other programs, activities and displays weekly spotlight creatures that have changed little over the ages. Way-Back Wednesdays, free with admission, runs June 11-Aug. 6. Along the same lines, the new Ancient Seas exhibit highlights ocean creatures that are living links to early animal species. Ancient Seas is across from the stern window of the Living Shipwreck. This exhibit is free with admission or membership.

in Pine Knoll Shores
THIS MONTH, PINE Knoll Shores is hosting several events to raise money for Hope for the Warriors, a program dedicated to helping provide a variety of services to military members and their families. Included in this year’s fundraising weekend is Kayak for the Warriors, 5K and 10K bike rides, the new Pine Knoll Shores Homes Tour and the Warrior Reception. First up is the newest event to the scene, the PKS Homes Tour, scheduled for 3-7pm on Thursday, June 5. Twelve beautiful and unique homes are included on the tour, all located on the ocean, sound and canals in Pine Knoll Shores. Since the homes are separated into three distinct areas, organizers have recommended routes for groups of ticket numbers in order to avoid congestion and to ensure all participants can see all the homes. Participants must be age 18 or older for this event. Tickets are $30 and include admission to the Warrior Reception later that night at the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. Tickets can also be purchased in person at PKS Town Hall. Immediately following the homes tour is the Warrior Reception at the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. This event features silent and live auctions which include works of local artists and goods and services from local businesses. Stroll through the aquarium to view the exhibits while sampling a variety of wines, beer and heavy hors d’oeuvres and bidding on silent auction items. The live auction begins at 7:30pm and additional beverage tickets can be purchased at the event. To attend just the reception without buying the homes tour ticket, a $5 donation will be accepted at the door. The fun continues on Saturday, June 7 with onshore and water activities at McNeill and Garner parks. The day kicks off with the Fun 5K and 10K bike rides at 8:30am. The rides begin and end at McNeill Park, and participants should arrive by 8am in order to register. The $15 registration fee includes lunch. Next up is Kayak for the Warriors, a 3.2-mile kayak and paddle board race through the Pine Knoll Shores canals, which begins at 10am. Bud Pitzer, event coordinator and team leader, said that there are some changes to this year’s kayak race. “A new little wrinkle on the race itself on Saturday, June 7, is that we are having multiple start times. The first cannon shot will be the start for the serious kayakers. The second cannon will be the start of the paddleboarders and the third cannon shot will start the rest of the kayak racers. All these changes have been made so that as our event continues to grow, everyone continues to have a great experience no matter how they participate,” he continued. The race consists of a standard race and a Warriors race. The winner of the standard race is based on raw time.

INDIAN BEACH IS preparing for another busy summer with visitors and homeowners coming to visit and stay. We are excited to see the cold winter head out and the warmth of the spring and summer. This excitement is evident with our commissioners and staff as well. The board of commissioners recently held their annual board retreat. During this time, the town departments presented issues that could arise over the next few years. The board approved several expenditures for the police and fire departments to help them expand their technology. They approved the police department to purchase new mobile data terminals. Every officer will have the ability to be connected immediately to local, state and federal law enforcement information and officers will be able to acquire driving and criminal histories instantly. The department will also purchase new tasers. This will allow every officer to carry one. These tasers will provide an added layer of safety for the officers and the public. Officers must go through training to use the taser which includes them being tased to know its affects. The board approved the fire department to purchase four new self-contained breathing apparatus’ (SCBA), tablets and a stair chair. The SCBA’s will replace older units that are at the end of their life cycle. As firefighters enter structure fires, they need to feel assured that their tanks will be some of the safest and quickest to use on the market meeting OSHA standards. They have also approved the purchase of computer
tablets to be used on the engines. These tablets will allow our firefighters to have immediate incident information during emergency response. They also approved the purchase of a stair chair for our ambulance. This stair chair replaces one that is approximately 25 years old. This chair will allow our EMS to remove a patient from a multi-story residence that has limited access. This will also decrease potential injuries to staff. A parks and recreation workgroup was formed by staff to discuss issues relating to the health and well-being of our homeowners and visitors. This workgroup is comprised of residents and business owners in Indian Beach. Over the next few months, this group will focus on the needs of our town and will relay ideas to staff. Our staff will analyze these ideas and bring them to the board of commissioners for possible action. We have also had several oceanfront homeowners ask about sand fencing on their property. The town does not fund sand fencing or other similar projects, but we do encourage the importance of preserving our beach to our homeowners. If homeowners or condominium complexes are interested in placing sand fencing on their property, our town hall has information to assist with proper installation. We hope everyone has a safe and happy summer and know that our staff is available to try to assist you if have a question concerning the town. Mayor Stewart Pickett Indian Beach
tourism BAROMETER Hosting Travel Writers Brings Maximum Awareness to the Crystal Coast AS PART OF the marketing strategy to drive awareness and build definition for the Crystal Coast, hosting group media tours is the number-1 editorial tactic, resulting in beautiful, multipage spreads within a dynamic blend of niche, national and metro magazines in secondary markets advertising is unable to impact. Travel magazines, newspapers and websites have a huge impact on the decisions made by potential visitors to our area. Everyone wants to have the best possible experience on their next vacation, so what better way to ensure that than to take the advice of the experts? Once a destination is featured in a spread of a major magazine like Travel + Leisure or on a primetime spot on the Travel Channel, it piques the interest of potential guests. Because the guess work has been done for them, guests will be more likely to book a vacation that has enjoyed the favorable reviews of a trusted travel writer. Recently the Crystal Coast Tourism Authority and its marketing firm, The Zimmerman Agency, made arrangements for two groups of journalists to visit the Crystal Coast with an itinerary chock full of unique activities – from double-decker bus tours & culinary bike tours to stand-up paddle boarding & boat rides, visiting area attractions and exceptional dining experiences. The travel writer trips are always well planned and 48

executed by the Zimmerman team and we receive very positive feedback from participants. In fact, many of them plan return visits with their families. “I loved everything about our stay at the Crystal Coast. It is very hard to pinpoint one activity or place – but I very much enjoyed the trip out to the Cape Lookout National Seashore & Hungry Town Bike Tours. I enjoyed every activity and place we visited – the entire area is beautiful, everyone was very friendly, and the food was wonderful! I also loved the house we stayed in with spectacular views, bright colors & tasteful décor. I am very thankful to the Z team and the Crystal Coast Tourism Authority for planning and executing such a seamless trip and cannot wait to share with our readers!” – Virginia Bride Magazine. “The four days we spent in SOBX flew by, thanks to the fabulous activities, food and frankly an exceptionally congenial group of journalists. Lots of fun moments. It was clear that the Zimmerman Agency and Crystal Coast Tourism Authority put a lot of time and effort into the itinerary, and went to great lengths to show us a great time and all that the area has to offer. Everything was really lovely, from start to finish.” – Ladies’ Home Journal We look forward to another group of journalists to visit in the fall.

EVERY COUPLE OF years the Town of Atlantic Beach sends out surveys to our citizens to get input on the state of the town and the things we should be working to improve. In addition to collecting specific information from our residents, these surveys allow our second home owners who do not vote in Atlantic Beach a very real say in what happens in their beach town. We recently received the results of our most recent survey and I’m glad to report that the areas of concern for our citizens are areas in which we have been actively working to improve. As a business person, I sometimes wish we could move faster in the public sector. But, given that we are spending taxpayer dollars, it is good that we are deliberate in our actions and our spending. Following is a listing of the three biggest areas of concern in our recent survey and what we are doing to address these concerns. Family Entertainment To a large extent, the private sector has pulled out of the family entertainment business in Atlantic Beach. This is simply a factor of increasing real estate values and a seasonal economy – the numbers don’t work anymore. To fill this void, the town is working on two fronts – infrastructure investment in our parks and the creation of events, such as our Seaside Cinema and Junior Lifeguard programs. The real action this year will be taking place at our park across from Atlantic Station. We have recently opened our new splash pad – a water play feature geared toward younger children. With older kids in mind, we have recently completed the design phase for a skateboard park. Skateboarding is now the third most popular recreational activity for kids between the ages of 6 and 18, yet there is no public skateboard park in our area; we need to change this. The next phases of the park will contain miniature golf,

walking trails and, hopefully, a water slide.
Mayor Trace Cooper
The Circle After several years of delays caused by a very difficult economy, this year has seen a lot of activity return to the Circle. The developers have several residential projects underway in the area and are finishing up the reinstallation of dozens of public parking spaces around the interior of the Circle. There are multiple commercial projects in the permitting stage and we have an exciting slate of public events planned at the Boardwalk this summer including our first annual AB Beach Music Festival. It’s been a long time coming, but the Circle is on its way back. Streetscapes A significant amount of survey respondents commented that we need to improve the appearance of our town, particularly in the commercial districts. I agree with this assessment, but it is a tricky problem to solve since most of the run-down buildings are privately owned. We need to encourage private landowners to improve their own properties as many have in recent years. And, if necessary, we can strengthen our ordinances to force those landowners who are not taking proper care of their buildings and grounds to do so. The town will continue to do what we can with public land, including moving forward with the design of an attractive new use of the old bridge abutment on the west side of the high-rise bridge. We have done a lot of planning to address these concerns. Now, I am excited to see us making things happen. I am looking forward to this summer in Atlantic Beach and the years to come.
turtle tracks Emerald Isle Watching for Turtles AS THIS CONTRIBUTION goes to print near the end of April, the Emerald Isle Sea Turtle Protection Program volunteers are turning their eyes seaward. The volunteers began walking the beaches in search of evidence of nesting sea turtles on May 1 and will continue every morning through the end of August. There had been reports of loggerhead sea turtles being seen offshore and green turtles being sighted in Bogue Sound during the last two weeks in April, so we know that turtles are approaching our area. Traditionally, the first nesting turtles crawl out onto the
Georgia and South Carolina beaches in early May. Within a few weeks, nesting turtles (almost all loggerheads) turn up on the southern-most beaches in North Carolina. The central part of the coast, including Emerald Isle, Atlantic Beach, Pine Knoll Shores and Indian Beach, usually see their first nests in the latter half of May. By the time this contribution is read by our visitors, there should be several nests along our beaches. Nest sites are generally recognized as six foot square flagged sites with a large yellow post. These sites are monitored throughout Kevin Geraghty photo their 55-60 day incubation period. The program volunteers request that nest sites not be disturbed and that any sign of a sea turtle coming ashore on the Emerald Isle beaches be reported to the Emerald isle non-emergency Police phone line at 252-354-2021.

A Little Bit of This and That… IN 2008 THE Town of Pine Knoll Shores honored veterans from World War II. In 2010, we all gathered to honor veterans from the Korean War. John F. Kennedy said, “One measure of a great nation is how they treat their veterans.” In 2014, it is time to honor the men and women that served our country during the Vietnam War Era. This era is most commonly defined as the period from 1961 to 1975. The event on Saturday, Oct. 4 will begin at 3pm with a rededication of the Town’s Veterans Monument in Veterans Park adjacent to our town hall. This event is open to all Carteret County Vietnam era veterans and all citizens of Pine Knoll Shores. The rededication will last about an hour. We will have a dinner at the Country Club of the Crystal Coast in Pine Knoll Shores for all past and present residents of Pine Knoll Shores that are Vietnam Era Veterans and their families at 5:30pm the same day. Our committee chair on this effort is Craig Letchner, a Vietnam vet himself. We are asking all PKS Vietnam era veterans to identify yourselves. To help facilitate this, we have established an email address: PKSVietnamvets@gmail. com. We will send you a questionnaire and work with you and your family – we want to honor you and thank you for standing with our country. It’s time to say “thank you.” I’m always saying what a great staff we have in Pine Knoll Shores. Because of this, a few years ago we established
Mayor Ken Jones
the “Team Member of the Quarter” award. The purpose is to showcase the person or group that made a significant contribution to our town in that quarter. The first quarter of 2014 we recognized Scott Sherrill, our town clerk. Scott contributes to our town team every day, but this first quarter he did tremendous work on the strategic plan for PKS. He not only taught a lot through this whole process, he organized the meetings, planned the agendas, got us professional help, kept the whole process on course and kept meeting minutes and produced the final product. Sounds like he did it all! Thank you Scott, great job! As I write this we are heading into the final stretch of the 2014-15 town budget process. Again, your board of commissioners and your town staff have done a yeoman’s task of putting together a balanced budget and keeping the tax rate steady. I feel very confident here in April saying the tax rate will stay the same. That said, with inflation and the ever changing economic and political climate, we have some tough decisions to make in the future. With all of the good news out of the way, it’s time to start our summer! Please enjoy the season with visitors, friends and family, but please, please do it safely!
the DIVOT Summer Arrives… JUNE IS THE month of the Men’s and Ladies US Open’s being played in our backyard – Pinehurst. It’s the first time both tournaments have been held at the same facility in the same year. It’s a great opportunity for you to see the world’s best players compete on one of the best courses in the country. Golf Tip of the Month Last month we talked about “getting it up and down” to knock shots off of your score and make you a better player. This month is the secret to downhill putts. Knowledge and technique of downhill putts is the key to becoming a better player. Putting is half the game of golf. That being said, the ability to putt well is so important to improving your scores. The trick to control the distance on downhill putts is where to strike the ball on the face of the putter. Most putters have a line which indicates to center of the putter face, called the sweet spot. This is the location where you’ll hit the majority of your putts. But on downhill putts, try striking the ball between the center line and toe of the putter. This puts less mass into striking the golf ball and the ball will come off of the face of the putter slower, which will help you control your distance of the putt. 52

club news PKS Women’s Club LIVING AS WE do in a community surrounded by sound and sea it’s not unlikely that at some point we might find ourselves on a boat – either through ownership or friendship. If so, would we know what to do if the captain became incapacitated? On April 25, Commander John (“JB”) Bagby of the Fort Macon Sail and Power Squadron presented prudent and practical advice on how to handle a situation when the captain becomes disabled. Commander Bagby, a former Naval Officer and Vietnam combat disabled veteran, is the husband of past PKS Women’s Club President Barbara Bagby. After moving to Pine Knoll Shores in 2003, he became involved in the US Power Squadron organization of over 400 local squadrons and moved up to Commander of the Fort Macon Squadron in 2008. In February, he was elected secretary of the 20 North and South Carolina Squadrons. His informative talk focused on the Partner in Command course offered by the Power Squadron which equips boaters with the ability to take over the boat if the captain is unable to continue. The objectives are to safely operate the boat, deal with common emergencies and exercising proper procedures to call for help. If the captain is down it is vital to stabilize the captain and call for help. It is important to have available at all times a horn, bell, whistle, mirror, radio, cell phone, orange distress flag, flares and flash lights. Most importantly, a marine radio can get you to the right people quickly. MAYDAY is the international call to alert the Coast Guard that help is needed. When your MAYDAY signal is answered it is important to give as much information as possible including coordinates, name of boat, color of boat, make of boat, reason
for distress, number of people on board. The Partner in Command course teaches how to dock a boat, handle medical emergencies and exercise onboard safety measures. Based on Commander Bagby’s presentation the course should be a high priority for anyone contemplating spending time on the water. Following the presentation, the club’s business meeting focused on club activities including Cook’s Night Out, Supper Club and the Mile of Hope event for children with cancer. Nominations for the 2014-2015 board of directors were discussed and next year’s philanthropic donations were outlined. The Pine Knoll Shores Women’s Club has a tradition of donations to community organizations including the Bogue Banks Library, the Broad Street Clinic, Caroline’s House, the Boys’ and Girls’ Club and other worthy local organizations. Of special significance to club members is the yearly scholarship awarded to a worthy female student attending Carteret Community College. In cooperation with the financial aid office at CCC, a scholarship recipient is selected; many of these students would not have been able to begin, or continue, their studies without this assistance from the PKS Women’s Club. The final meeting of the season, before the summer hiatus, will be the Installation Luncheon to be held at 11:30am on June 6 at the Coral Bay Club. As we look forward to our fall programs, we invite all women in Pine Knoll Shores to consider joining the club. Meet your new neighbors, rekindle old friendships, attend enlightening presentations and enjoy social activities with other Pine Knoll Shores residents. Monthly club meetings are open to all Pine Knoll Shores women – plan to attend a meeting in the fall and join in the fun! By Michelle Powers and Linda Langheld
