Tybee singer/songwriter Thomas Oliver’s new CD “The Edge of America” dropped in September. It’s a solid rendering of the best of traditional country music, with a natural blend of folk and blues. After a lifetime in Atlanta, Thomas left his job in the city of his birth and settled four years ago on Tybee (becoming a fulltime resident after visiting regularly for 15 years.) Here, on the edge of America, he says he let the salt marsh, tidal creeks and ocean breezes do their magic. “The Edge of America” is the result – melodies in the tradition of real country music, with its natural mixture of folk and blues. Stories with timeless themes told simply and clearly. Nothing fancy here. “These songs are about the lost and found,” Thomas says, “the loves we had, the loves we threw away and the loves we’ve been given. It’s about home and family.” Finally, “The Edge of America” is about place,” Thomas says. “Places we’ve been, places we are in and places we miss.” The CD contains the island favorite “The Ballad of Tybee Island.” Sometimes it just takes a while That’s how Thomas Oliver describes his reincarnation as a singer songwriter after a long career in journalism. While working at Atlanta’s largest newspaper, Thomas wrote songs and performed them on the weekends. Eventually, he produced two CDs of stonecold country – honky-tonk blues and lovesick ballads. The Georgia Music Industry Association honored five of his songs from those two CDs as its Best of Country. “Finally Over Losing My Mind” and “The Life You Save Might be Your Own” are available on iTunes and most

other Internet music sites. But all that was just a long prelude to a new life and a new sound. Fate and faith The long-declining newspaper industry was dealt a near fatal blow when the Great Recession of 2008 wiped out all but the strong, and even the major metro dailies were wounded. As a result, they offered buyouts. Thomas took one as a leap of faith and talked his long-time girlfriend, who also worked at the newspaper, into taking a buyout as well. They got married and moved to a tiny island off the coast of Georgia. On Tybee Island, Thomas became a fulltime performing singer/ songwriter. He brought his well-deserved reputation for a great show from Atlanta, where folks like Sean McPherson of the Smith’s Olde Bar says, “Thomas is one of my favorites to book because I know he will put on a great show that always leaves them wanting more.” Savannah Songwriters Series Since moving from Atlanta, Thomas has played many of the music venues on Tybee Island, from Doc’s Bar and Huc-aPoos, to North Beach Grill and Wild Wing’s in Savannah, As well as, Uncle Bubba’s on Wilmington Island and Driftaway Café in Sandfly. His shows are a blend of Americana, classic country and his originals. Although Thomas was told that most venues, since they cater to the tourist crowd, preferred covers to originals, he felt moved to play more and more of his own songs, and the crowd’s response encouraged him even further. His long-time fans couldn’t help but notice that Thomas’ songs were taking on more of a folk and blues mixture. Still Tybee Breeze

underscored with real country melodies and stories, but now layered with what folks call Americana: a little bit of country mixed with folk and blues. He soon became involved with the newly formed Savannah Songwriters Series, which showcases original music twice a month in a writers-in-the-round format. As SSS evolved and grew, Thomas became more involved and is now a producer and helps book the showcases.

Rising TYde Community Food Pantry has Second Anniversary Thank you Tybee for two years of helping Tybee people in need. It has been a fast two years in deed. The pantry is now well established and functioning like a well oiled machine. Having grown from just two clients our very first month, to 58 last November and December shows us all how the need truly still exists. We are happy to be able to help our neighbors in their personal struggle to make ends meet each month. This past year we sent out 425 grocery carts FULL of food. That is a monthly average of 35 families. Of the almost one thousand people we aided during the year, 40% were seniors and 15% were children under the age of 18. We have had an easy summer this year, as the season brings in more work for our clients. We serve mostly seniors during these months. But now, with the season over, our numbers will continually grow until the spring. We will see more families with children and single people that have had their hours cut. What does that mean in terms of the pantry stock? Well most of all it means we need a lot more canned fruit, individual fruit cups, 100% fruit juice, peanut butter and jelly, and canned meat. If you plan to donate, please drop off your items at the Y front office. It also means we will be planning our holiday distributions for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Everyone likes to get something special to make their holiday a little brighter. Watch the Y marquee for a list of items we will need for the holidays. So the counting, stocking, planning, and distributing continues. Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers that help with every phase of this worthy cause. Without you and the very generous people of Tybee it could not and would not get done. Joey Burel, Chairman RTCFP

What makes Tybee a special place….which icons, memories, images come to mind…? Home, family, community, vacation, beach house, ocean, solitude, beach, flip flops, bikinis, Coppertone, lifeguards, sea shells, turtles, dunes, sea oats, palm trees, fishing pier, resorts, rivers, marshes, tides, boating, fishing, crabbing, lighthouses, Fort Screven, parties, beer, wine, tequila, bar-b-que, festivals, parades, tourists, traffic, parking, fund raisers, weddings….? My family moved here in the early 1950’s and no matter where I have been living, in the intervening sixty-plus years, Tybee was always home. So for me everything on the above list except for maybe the last two listed, call up great memories of living on Tybee, but it’s home, family and community that are seared into my soul. Now that Mike Hosti has officially declared the end of summer, with the posting of the “back to normal”

sign, we can all relax a bit and become reacquainted with this diverse dysfunctional extended family we call Tybee. It’s not very likely that the “bubba’s” and the “tree-hugger’s” are going to reach across the aisle and settle their political differences, but the important thing is that they care enough about this three-mile by one-mile spit of sand to fight for their point of view. I did some research on Google, looking for a song or poem that might eloquently sum up what makes Tybee special. For a song I didn’t have much luck, but the music video, “toes in the water” by Zac Brown does capture some of the grittier beach spirit. The search for a poetic tribute was a bit more challenging, but I may have found a candidate for the Tybee Poet Laureate: a poem by: Leisa Artus A long stretch of highway takes you there… Miles of marsh and salt-kissed air. Around the bend the lighthouse stands… Green gray water and warm white sands. Little houses, tropical hues… Brightly splashed, they welcome you ! Long walks, flip flops, sand and sea… Tybee simply let’s you be ! Remember: “If you’re lucky enough to live on Tybee, you’re lucky enough…! If you have any comments please go to my blog, sign up or send me an email and leave your, comments, complaints, etc…!

to the cost of covering the full risk of flooding in 25% annual increments. The new rates for primary residences will also be increased in phases over 4 years, 25% each year. Your home may or may not be affected. You can try contacting your insurer to discuss this. The flood maps are also being redrawn as part of this legislation. As a result of the new mapping, we all might find out that, even though our newer homes were built according to code and even one foot above minimum flood elevation, now we are below flood elevation. Lots of questions remain to be answered, but the worst case I’ve read about so far, after having read many articles about this, is insurance premiums increasing from $500 to $700 per year to as much as $30,000. That’s per year too. Kinda takes your breath away, doesn’t it? $30,000 a year!!!! You may be able to retrofit your house, by means like raising it another few feet, to get it above the new flood elevation. This could prove to be less expensive than paying the new flood insurance rates. Two types of primary residence property owners, those who own homes built before the first flood maps were made and those that were grandfathered because either they met the flood guidelines when they were constructed or they have since been declared to lie in flood-prone areas, will be hit very hard when the insurance subsidies stop. There may be financial help available from FEMA on this. So live below your means, check into the upcoming flood insurance changes so you can be prepared, and have some fun along the way, if that’s possible in this case. Contact me at pefipl69@yahoo.com if you have any questions or need help with your decision-making, or just come on over for a visit if you want.

Say what? No. Say Waters, Biggert-Waters. It’s the other name of what is officially called the Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012. Oookay, now what’s that? Well, if you’re not up on changes coming very soon to your flood insurance, get prepared for the possible sticker shock of a lifetime. This new piece of legislation was enacted before superstorm Sandy barreled into the New Jersey shore and many points north and west of there. This was done because the NFIP, or National Flood Insurance Program, had reached the point where it had cumulative losses of over $24 billion and had to be stabilized. So the feds decided that the 5.6 million property owners in flood-prone areas, which includes every property owner on Tybee of course, would have to start paying flood insurance premiums that better account for the full risk of flooding and FEMA, who administers the NFIP, which Tybee participates in, would get out of the business of subsidizing our flood insurance premiums.. Most likely, if you have a mortgage on your home, you’re required to have flood insurance. Unless something changes though, the first to feel the full impact of this new law will be vacation homes or second homes and possibly businesses. The insurance rates on these buildings will rise Rob Callahan, PFP

1913 Lovell’s Report #1 Before getting to Mayor Lovell’s report for FY 1913, I need to finish reporting on Mr. Izlar’s problems. I’m sure you will recall that we finished last month’s article with petitions presented by Mr. E.B. Izlar at the close of Council’s meeting of April 17, 1913. One of those petitions was to have Council reduce the amount of a Police Court fine imposed on him by the Mayor for an unspecified conviction. Council advised him that it did not have authority to grant such a request. Apparently this led to the next meeting of Council which was held four days later on April 21, 1913 to continue to deal with Mr. Izlar’s infraction. “Town Attorney A.P. Wright stated, that in an interview with Mr. McLaws, attorney for E.B. Izlar, the matter of the building on subdivision of Beach Lot 98, Ward 5, had been adjusted, by Mr. Izlar promising to purchase Subdivision #10 [?] from the present owner – Max Blumenthal, which would give the required 10 ft from boundary line in accordance with ordinance. [That sentence was very confusing and difficult to read, but you get the picture – Mr. Izlar built within the 10-foot property line setback and is now seeking to resolve the issue.] “In the matter of the building not being constructed on subdivision of Beach Lot 98, which work was stopped in accordance with ordinance by the Mayor, Attorney Wright suggested to Mr. Izlar, that he apply for an injunction against the Mayor and Councilmen from stopping the work on the building, which is now within the restricted distance between buildings and boundary lines per the ordinance.” I’ll be on the look to see if this matter resurfaces. Present day Izlar Avenue is located along the southern line of Lot #98, parallel and one block south of 16th Street. Return with me now to those thrilling days of yesteryear when Mayor Lovell submitted yet another exciting report of the Town’s accomplishments for the preceding fiscal year. This time for the year ending April 1, 1913 as presented at the meeting of August 14, 1913. “I beg now to submit for No One Covers Tybee Like The Breeze

your information the following account of work, etc done during the past year ending April 30th 1913. “The gravel walk north of 13th Street has been repaired in many places and considerable cypress curbing had been put down, replacing the decayed pine curbing.” [This and several other references to cypress trees that I’ve come across preparing these snippets lead me to believe that a goodly number of cypress trees grew on Tybee. I going to further speculate that they were growing naturally since planted trees would likely not have been used for curbing on walkways. It’s good to see the cypress trees that have been planted in JC Park and other places around the island. They appear to be quite happy in their new/old environment.] “The plank walk at Estill [train] Station and Tilton Avenue [used to run one block north of Hwy 80 at the big bend] to Beach and on Main Street north of 3rd St have all been repaired and placed in good condition. [Time for my regular reminder to myself and you readers that it will be another 10 years before cars arrive on Tybee. Walking, the train, horses, wheeled carts, and bicycles were in.] “The drift sand on 8th Street between the Athletic Club and J.J. McDonough’s cottage continue to give considerable trouble, and I recommend a good coating of gravel be spread over this space. “The Grand Walks from Main Street to Beach on 14th, 15th, and 16th streets are in bad order, having been used by teams in hauling building material during the winter and spring. They will have to be resurfaced. “The 3 plank walk on the beach side of 17th St being in bad shape, was rebuilt and made a 4 plank walk for about 500 feet. “A new 4 plank walk was built on 19th St from its intersection with Chatham Ave, to the beach, a distance of 752 ft, and a new 4 plank walk was also built on Main St from 18th st to 19th st 496 feet long.

We want to thank every chapel bride, groom and family member who has chosen a wedding and reception at our Tybee Wedding Chapel. We especially extend our appreciation to the Tybee Island community for the support given to our beautiful Tybee Wedding Chapel. The chapel is poised to move forward to an exciting expansion of a large ballroom beginning Nov. 11th. The ballroom will be built connecting to the existing structure with an internal staircase, enlarged groom’s room. Construction will be completed in 90 days… just before the porcelain arts school returns for its 6th year! The chapel will use the original bell tower and steeple for its “grand entrance” into the ground level ballroom. When you first drive onto the property you will see the ballroom entrance on ground level. The room will be approximately 50 x 56 ft. (2,800 square feet). You will actually be able to look into the ballroom from the upstairs Sanctuary because the ceiling will attach to our existing roofline with high ceilings! After speaking with caterers, wedding planners and other experts in the wedding community it has become apparent that Tybee Island has missed weddings ranging from 180-225 because of inadequate

reception space. Unfortunately, when a bride toured our chapel we were never advised that she envisioned a larger reception than we could host. The bride and groom would simply continue to search for a venue that offered a larger ballroom. The addition of the ballroom will offer a significant positive financial impact to Tybee going forward island wide. Hotels, shops, restaurants, vacation rentals and other businesses thrive when weddings are being held on Tybee. Please look at the renderings of the chapel’s addition. It will retain its simple grace & “fairy tale charm” but large enough for the wedding party to go downstairs to the existing enclosed space for “meeting and greeting/ cocktail hour” and then move into the grand ballroom.

The City of Tybee has been very supportive of the addition. It changes our status to “mini convention” where we can now be able to host small municipal conventions, State Bar of Georgia conventions, etc. We may be able to host the Shiner’s convention this coming year! The occupancy for a convention is over 320 which will allow us to host small conventions. Please wish us luck! Lannie Jarrell and I are looking forward to the addition and are proud to work towards our vision of Tybee Island becoming a more established wedding destination. We have already been working with “the dream team” who helped us move and built the chapel: Anthony Sapone with Catskill Builders, Engineers Mark Boswell and Mark Cadman. We are all ready to begin construction! We want to thank Ray Anaya for his guidance and suggestions regarding this addition. Ray, Director of Events for Tybee Wedding Chapel, has done an outstanding job guiding this business. He and Carla Michael, his assistant, are well respected in the wedding community. Thank you guys for your hard work. More importantly, thank you for making the chapel bride’s dreams come true! We also wish to thank First Chatham Bank, the SBA & SBAC for believing in our project and funding it.

be entertaining on this date at The Oaks. What could be more charming than Halloween on Tybee? Adults and children dressed for the stroll down Lewis Ave. and equally ghoulish pets! The decorations for the homes and lawns is something to behold. Tybee Island and its residents truly reflect the perfect small town celebration of “trick or treat” going all out on this street. What a wonderful surprise for children of all ages! I can still remember my first Halloween on Lewis. Lannie and I plan to slow down a bit and enjoy the month of October. Many of you know that we are going to have an extremely busy November (and several month afterwards) when the construction of the chapel’s ballroom begins. If you see us around wish us luck with the next project. We are looking forward to October knowing that afterwards the construction and busy holidays will hit hard. See you around the island! AAARGH to ya’ll! Stacye, Lannie and the Oceanfront Team

What ’s Cookin’

with Chef Espy

Provencal Chicken Stew Sometimes comforting simple recipes like this are the best. A meal that you can start in the late afternoon and that will bubble away on your stove, fragrancing and warming your home until dinner time. This particular chicken stew is inspired by the flavors of Southeastern France. Generally associated with summer, tomatoes, fennel and herbs de Provence make a wonderful rustic stew you can enjoy in cooler more autumn-like months. Easy to make and very fulfilling. Serves 4 to 6 Ingredients:

1 tsp. fennel seeds ● 1 tsp. herbs de provence ● salt & freshly ground black pepper ● 6 chicken thighs (or more) ● 2 tbsp. olive oil ● 1/4 onion, diced ● 1 fennel bulb ● 1/2 cup white wine (chardonnay) ● 4 yukon gold potatoes, med. sized or 6 small red potatoes halved ● 1 28 oz. can San Marzano whole tomatoes, crushed by hand or chopped ● 3 cups water ● 1 cup low sodium chicken broth

Prepare: Use a mortar and pestle or coffee grinder, or bottom of a pan to crush the fennel seeds. Remove the skin from the chicken and sprinkle with the fennel, herbs de provence, and salt & pepper. Heat a large dutch oven, or large heavy pan with a lid over med.high heat. Add the olive oil and brown the thighs on both sides. While chicken is browning, cut the fennel in qts., remove the core and dice. Push chicken to sides of pan to form a hole and add the onion and fennel.

GREETINGS TYBEE! We are rapidly coming into the fall season with open arms welcoming the cooler (i. e. less humid) weather. I hope you enjoy Pirate Fest, Third Thursdays on Tybee, and your Halloween celebrations this month! Plus, remember Tybee for the Holidays is right around the corner too. It is wonderful that there is so much to enjoy and be thankful for throughout the year!! The fall series of Third Thursdays on Tybee continues this month in the Main Corridor. An Island favorite, Roy Swindelle, will be playing on Oct. 17 at the Lot at Tybee Oaks (1213 E. Highway 80). Swindelle started playing drums at age 7 and by age 12 he joined his first band and has never looked back. In

the mid ‘70’s with his own bass guitar he became a bass player and has been playing in favorite local hotspots, performing at events – large and small, and helping with fundraisers ever since. Always prepared and armed with one of the most positive attitudes around, Swindelle has been a chosen Tybee Breezy Awards’ Best Musician recipient throughout the years and has been spotted at Savannah Songwriters gatherings. We are thrilled that he will showcase his Steel Drum talents for you during October’s Third Thursdays on Tybee. If rain prevails that evening, Eric and Heather at Huc-a-Poos will graciously accommodate everyone for Roy’s concert. Thank you to everyone that was part of the second annual Tybee Community Day last month. In true Community spirit, the day was a wonderful celebration of getting back to normal and reconnecting at the backyard picnic style party while spending time getting reacquainted among all the activities and music. Pictures are posted on the Tybee Community Day FB page. Enjoy! We’re looking forward to next year’s gathering already! As mentioned earlier, the holiday season will be here soon! The Main Street Promotions Committee has been prepping all year for Tybee for the Holidays. There will be a few additions this year to experiencing Tybee in a different light between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. One of the new additions will be Shop Small Saturday®. Various merchants will be participating in this special day between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We encourage you to “Buy Local Tybee” even more this year than last. A second addition is Community of Caring. Every year, donations are collected for the Tybee’s food pantry, Toys for Tots and the animal shelter(s). This year, true to the giving spirit of the holiday and of Tybee, a listing of known drop off locations on Tybee will be available on the holiday website! Tybeefortheholidays.com and the Tybee for the Holidays FB page are being updated regularly with information. Please check them out and share them with your family, visitors, friends and even soon-to-be friends.

Sharing the Road A few weeks ago, before the tornado of Labor Day debauchery skittered across the island, a little girl had a near miss with disaster. This story comes second-hand from my better half, Tim, who bumped into the kindergartner and her family walking home from the beach. Anyone familiar with By Kelsey Bankert Tybee streets knows that sidewalks are not a common part of the scenery here. You could say it’s unsafe, but it’s also part of our charm. Fat tire beach cruisers drift easily along the widened blacktops of the numbered avenues, while silent couples walk their dogs, pulled ceaselessly into the grass by curious noses. It may be polite & safer to stay to one side or the other, but without sidewalks to keep things tidy, bikers, hikers, drivers, and drifters all magically navigate the gravel and tar of Tybee in a very communal way. In this vein, Tim, walking back from the ocean on one of our many sidewalk-free streets, found himself close behind a family of four. The mother and oldest daughter walked ahead, side-by-side, carrying beach supplies, talking. The father and his little girl, no older than six, tarried behind. She was close by his side, but furthest from the curb. The road was wide and empty; it was a quiet afternoon. Let me pause here for a seeming non-sequitar and remind you of a powerful sociological phenomenon that applies to our tale. It is that of in-group/out-group mentalities. One famous study that evidences this form of human behavior was conducted on bicyclists and motorists. Many of us, while driving, have become irrationally aggravated by a cyclist. Maybe, in our opinion, they are taking up too much of the road. Maybe, with our feet on a heavier pedal, we think they’re moving too slowly. Maybe we go so far as to think that “they” shouldn’t be sharing “our” road at all. But how many of us who recognize ourselves in the above scenario also ride a bicycle? Haven’t we once or twice felt aggressive towards motorists? Maybe we felt they were crowding us, were oblivious to us, even hostile to us. So this is both the

Tybee Breeze

in-group/out-group paradigm and paradox. One person, equal parts motorist and bicyclist, sees one group as “out” while the other as “in” depending on their own immediate personal stake in the situation. This is not a complex idea, but the complexity lies in its infinite iterations. The sociologists and I have used the words in and out, but we could easily substitute important and unimportant, valuable and useless, worthy and unworthy. As Tim walked behind that little girl and her family, he suddenly saw a truck careen into sight. It raced down the straightway towards the family ahead, driving in the center of the road and going well over the speed limit. And what happened next? The truck came within inches, inches, of that tiny little girl, walking so carefully next to her father, on her way home from a day in the sun. What Tim remembers most clearly was the father’s gaze turning to follow the tail of the truck screeching through the next intersection and blazing onward. His was the look of both the bicyclist and the motorist. It was the look of a man trying to understand how such an important little girl had been treated so unimportantly. This simple story, of a small child who was almost struck by a driver, is really a story of so much more. It’s the story of the in-group and the out-group. It’s the frightening story of anyone so consumed with their own, however brief, identity that they forget the power to hurt those that don’t share it. And these aren’t the near the misses I’m referencing. These are the times when the car careens around the corner and hits the little girl, who her father can’t protect, who the driver never intended to hurt, but who lost sight of those outside. I used the motorist/bicyclist study as scientific example above because of its benign nature and suitability to the story. But these same psychological models are most often used not to figure out why people can’t “share the road,” but to elucidate the sociological and historical motivations behind genocide. A scary thought that should remind us of this above all else: to forget others is to forget our own selves. It is then that we are all lost. So this is a parable of emotional safety. It is a reminder that when your group becomes the only group, even for a short moment, even for the split second it would take to hurt another person, you have lost sight of the path and you are driving blind. Look out your windows and check your mirrors, because the man on the bicycle drives when he’s not peddling, just as you pedal when you don’t drive. You are much the same in the end; remember to share the road.

The Tybee community showed-up and showed out at Vivian’s Victory over Cancer Fundraiser. The American Legion hosted the event. There was a live and silent auction where many wonderful things were on display, music presented by Ron Denning, and a lot of goodies. Proceeds go to medical debts for Vivian Austin a beloved Tybee resident; she has battled cancer for two years. Vivian was there, although she had no teeth (a temporary condition), she looked beautiful with her trademark beetle haircut and healthy sense of humor. Everybody meet Joesy, she is the little sister to Gavin and daughter of Bonnie and Yan. She is being held by her proud Aunt Wanda. Donna was spotted at the Legion Bar with a cute upsweep hairstyle. Look who we enjoyed seeing at Vivian’s American Legion Fundraiser Nedra Hendrix, Phyllis Saunders and Terry Brown in his iconic rose colored glasses.

politically savvy clientele. Everyone is welcomed, but as with any country club, everyone is not accepted. It is important that city council candidates show up at the Legion and play some Bingo, Screw Your Neighbor or House Shoes. Like the great Tybee political philosopher James LaFavor says, “There are a lot of votes in this place.” Volunteerism is the backbone of Tybee. These are just some of the many selfless people that put on a successful fundraiser for Vivian Austin. Over 12,000 dollars was raised. Praise The Lord!! Well, summer is gone. All you missing Red Hat ladies are back in town. Sherri Simmons and Kathryn Williams were counted in the number of a record attendance of the Tybee Flashes Red Hats.

Sarah & Michael Elliott continue to court each other like they ain’t married. Tell them to stop sucking face in public. Makes it difficult on the rest of us. Enjoyed seeing the graciously beautiful J a n e Lindner at the Legion. The American Legion is the unofficial country club of Tybee with those dark hunter green walls and the

Karen proves age is truly just a number, just a bigger number for some of us. Just Julia had one of her legendary “It’s 5 o’clock Some where” Parties. This was to honor the arrival of her “mum,” both are English. Savannah Steve and Debi Burk Scott provided enjoyable, festival entertainment. Just Julia had an uninvited guest show up at the party. A huge rat snake was found in her boathouse. Dave released it back into the marsh. Rock Star Dave and Snake, thinking of going on the road, but Snake just wanted to go home. Sara and Dean Cromer had a glorious wedding on a beautiful Saturday afternoon on September 7th on the Walter Parker Pier on Tybee. They were

surrounded by some family and plenty of friends. Sara is the daughter of Queen Wanda, Flower Poshposy and Beach Bum Queen 2012. The pier was decorated like a dream. Father Sam Adams, pastor of the Tybee Church, was the officiant and the whole south side of Tybee was present. Join me in wishing the newlyweds much happiness. Mother of the Bride and Karl. Lona Crask and Christina Anderson are mother and daughter. They were two of the many quests at the Cromer wedding. They are always fashionably attired for all occasions.

Joan Gara is a live wire. She is full of energy... go to Marlin Monroe’s on Sundays and party with her crew. Christy Alan & Martha Peltier Swindelle entertained a lively crowd at Marlin’s. Jenny Orr & Frances Clark were present to witness the fun. Tracy, owner of Coco’s Grill, let Mary Shepherd off the chain. Mary showed up with her crew Amy Vaughn, Deb Morrell, Michelle Nooney & Kathy Brown. Pretty Lady, Shiela Noon, is back on Tybee. She spent five weeks in New Jersey. Sheila is glad to be home, by the way she danced she really missed Tybee. We missed her too. Annette & Gene w e r e spotted out enjoying food and live music.

“Expectations”, A Tybee Arts Association Show and Sale. It is almost time to kick off the holiday season, so do it right, and come out to the TAA Show and Sale, Nov. 1st – 3rd. The TAA is not only a supporter of the arts on Tybee and the Savannah area, but will, once again, have a giving tree decorated with presents from the artists with proceeds from the raffle going to a local children’s charity. The lucky winner of the raffle will take home a fully decorated Holiday tree for their very own. The tree will be raffled off on Sunday afternoon, Nov. 3rd. Among the artists participating in this Holiday season kick off show will be Co Chair for the event, Brad D. Hook, Watercolor Artist, Owner of “Strokes” by Hook and Managing Partner of “The Irritable Pelican” Art gallery on Tybee. Brad will display his detailed, fresh and unique style of Watercolor paintings along with some holiday décor for your home or gift giving. “These Art shows give our guests a chance to buy from local artists and to hear their stories on how the creations were made. Gifts from the heart”, Hook says. Dave Kartzman’s incredible woodturning is a sight to see. He takes, what an ordinary person would think of as a piece of wood, and turns it into a work of art. From Ikebana bowls for flower arranging, to wine bottle stoppers to seam rippers, Dave has great gift ideas. Other artists include, Robin Sterns from “Ardsley Art Glass”, Stained glass sculptures and Art glass jewelry, RL Brethauer from “Art by RL”, with his Driftwood Art, and Kala Peper from “Creations by Kala”. Dr. Alice Gerber, Bonnie Bishop, and Marianne Bramble are just a few more of the other wonderful artists in this show.

With only a few nest remaining on Tybee, we are winding down from yet another record season of sea turtle nesting. Tybee will finish the season with 21 loggerhead sea turtle nests. Although this is 3 less than last year, we still consider this a very successful nesting season. The average number of nests on Tybee is usually 7, but for the last 2 years we have averaged 22 nests! Statewide there are over 2,300 sea turtle nests along the coast. Of that total, an estimated 123,000 baby sea turtles have emerged and made their journey to the sea. Our state totals for the season makes 2 years in a row with nesting numbers over 2,000! Although loggerheads are the usual species of turtle nesting on our shoreline, the state has recorded 3 green sea turtle nests this season. Tybee has had 17 of 21 nests emerge and those nest inventories are complete. Approximately 1,400 baby loggerheads have emerged from nests on our island. Tybee will finish the season about the first week of Oct. Please help us keep the beaches dark, pick up trash left on the beach, smooth out sand castles and fill any holes dug on the beach. This will help the little baby turtles safely crawl towards the oceans under the disguise of night. More info about sea turtles can be found by visiting the TIMSC or www.tybeemarinesscience.org.

“Expectations” Show and Sale will be: Friday, November 1st from 6 – 9, Meet the Artist reception. Saturday, November 2nd from 10 – 6 and Sunday, November 3rd from 10 – 5. At the “Old Cafeteria” next to the YMCA Join us for some Holiday cheer. No One Covers Tybee Like The Breeze

Bees and Wasps Bees in their nesting habits are similar to wasps. Bees are fed pollen and honey instead of animal tissue. Bees are most important in the cross pollination process that is vital to fruit orchard, berries, vegetables and flowers. Most bees are solitary nesters. The most prolific of the species for pollination are bumble bees and honey bees. They both nest in colonies. Most of the North American bee species are solitary nesters. It has been studies that most of the 3,300 bee species that inhabit North America are solitary nesters. Honey Bees - Honey bees were first introduced from Europe in the time of the colonial period and are most importantly insects that pollinate our flowers and fruit crops. They are a major group of bees that are most beneficial to our economical process of the food chain order in how we live. They can also distinguish the smell of any flower or plant by the scent of the nectar that is given off. They produce honey and make wax from their secretion and are not known to be aggressive but can sting if the colony is threatened. Honey bees unfortunately are in a decline and should not be disturbed unless absolutely necessary. Carpenter Bees - Carpenter bees are similar in appearance to bumble bees with the exception of the abdomen that is completely black. The larger of the species chew burrows out of wood for nesting with their eggs and then leave those areas after the process is completed. I’ve found that a good pesticide residual applied to the target places can detour them from coming back to their seasonal nesting areas as long as rain and other factors have not disturbed the application of pesticide. Horntail Wasps - Horntail wasps also known as wood wasps are related to the bee family. Females

have a tendency to have a long projection at the end of the abdomen and this is where the name horntail is derived. They can emerge from lumber used to build homes and deface many finished surfaces by their boring habits. They are normally harmless and do not usually re-infest when treated accordingly. Any and all fire wood should be stored outside of the home as a preventive measure for these types of insects. Mud Daubers - Mud daubers, also commonly called dirt daubers are a large species in the wasp family. They are solitary insects that build their nests of masonry out of dirt and moisture in porch areas, eves and any cornered structure of cavity. Hornets - Hornets are social wasps that are aggressive in their manner and from personal experience I can detest to that from many confrontations with them (ouch)! They can nest in or near building structures. They chew leaves and small bits of wood and fashion their nests to resemble a type of a paper coverall. Yellow Jackets - Yellow jackets mainly nest underground. They can have an entrance tunnel and an exit tunnel as well. When disturbing the nest or hovel they become very aggressive and quickly swarm from both sides of the tunnel. They have an intense sting as I have experienced also (double ouch)! When dealing with these types I incorporate our rig system an am able to use an extended jet stream application before actually penetrating the nest. This has worked greatly in the total treatment of the pests and reduces the eminent contact with the technician consumer.

Until next time, Johnny “the bugman” Herald Let’s work the bugs out!

Fun bug Facts:

Fact: The praying mantis is the only insect that has one ear and can turn its head. Fiction: Ants and termites live separately and never come together. Fact: Both species will harbor close by without conjoining each others nest or colonies.

A BIG THANK YOU to Tybee and the best group of friends a person can have! The benefit was exciting, overwhelming and I went home exhausted and with a heart full of love. A special THANK YOU to the fundraiser committee, Capt. Mike, Crab Shack, American Legion and its SAL and auxiliary. A lot of people worked very hard to make this event successful ($12,600 and counting) and they hold a special place in my heart. THANK YOU to all the incredible people who made donations and to those that came to support the cause. Many had to park in the boonies and walk over. I hope I got to hug each and every one of you! Y’all are a special group of people and I love each and every one of you. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! ~ Vivian Austin

Libra (September 23 - October 22) You love & appreciate humor. You trly on your sense of humor to get thru some sticky situations, especially those in which you have to deliver some bad news... Scorpio (October 23 - November 21) Because of your secret agent lifestyle, you’re prone to come in contact with questionable opportunities. When you find yourself in a calmer state of mind you’ll realize that convenience doesn’t always equal the best option. Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21) It’s no secret that you’re a hard worker or maybe it is a secret. Success at a new role in your life will lead to a promotion or upgrade. Capricorn (December 22 - January 20) Because something seems difficult or even impossible, doesn’t mean its not worth pursuing. Pursuing that difficult project may be worth the effort. You never know what one accomplishment will ultimately lead to. Aquarius (January 21 - February 18) You always come to the aid of those in need, but be wary of those that are always in need. Your generous nature let’s people take advantage of you. Say no! Pisces (February 19 - March 20) You’re approaching a drastic lifestyle change. It could take the form of a new living situation, a new relationship, or a new career move. Whatever happens you’ll be paying yourself a little more attention than usual... Aries (March 21 - April 19) You’re on fire work wise! You can’t even blink your eye without someone offering you work. Taurus (April 20 - May 20) Your life is great right now, this is a time in your life that you’ll never forget. You also have a lot on your plate. Focus on planning so that your life runs more smoothly. Gemini (May 21 - June 20) You’ll reconnect with old friends, relatives, and strangers that you never knew that you knew. You have a lot of socializing to do. In the midst of all that socializing, it’s important to take time to relax. Cancer (June 21 - July 22) Focus on eating healthy, getting plenty of exercise and restoring balance in your body. Persistence is key to seeing results. Be patient during this healing process. Leo (July 23 - August 22) You get so social that you become very popular. On top of that your need to socialize can become overwhelming so much so that you may call people at random. Virgo (August 23 - September 22) You may be quiet in real life, but something happens when you get on the internet. You can’t be more vocal! No One Covers Tybee Like The Breeze
