Just had a wonderful dinner with the relatives in from Florida, Laura's Mom and Hubby. Haven't seen them for three years since my son Travis and Laura got married in Maryland. They liked our cooler breezes in Ohio, they are living in Florida in some HOT SUNSHINE! They looked great, Jerri and Gary, what a cool couple. Jerri brought me a pink T shirt from Amelia Island where they live, and a bag to go with it, pink and white. They brought Kyle a cap. He loves caps. I ate so much I'm stuffed, it was alot of fun having dinner for 7. Everyone went except my oldest son who is having ankle issues. Fun times. :) Hopefully a picture of us all will be posted soon in front of the Resturant we chose, Harry Buffalo! :) An enjoyable evening to all!

Today in Coast Guard history 11 August. 1812-The Revenue Cutter Louisiana capsized and sank at her home port of New Orleans during a hurricane. All hands were lost except for her master. 1817-"The ship Margaret, which sailed on Sunday, August 10, 1817, for Amelia Island with a number of persons on board, supposed to be going out for the purpose of joining the pirates, was brought back by the RC Active, under the command of Revenue Captain John Cahoone, and anchored yesterday morning [11 August 1817] in the Bay. The cutter fired several shots at the Margaret before she hove to. It is said that she has also munitions of war on board." [Taken from the New York Gazette-New York Post, dated 12 August 1817.] 1966-CGC Point Welcome was attacked in the pre-dawn hours of 11 August 1966 by U.S. Air Force aircraft while on patrol in the waters near the mouth of the Cua Viet River, about three-quarters of a mile south of the Demilitarized Zone (the 17th Parallel) in South Vietnam.

Amelia Island - June 12, Thursday We should have no problem getting to Fernandina Beach today in time to meet our friends for happy hour - if we get an early start! We much prefer a leisurely morning sipping our coffee and heading out about 9am. But today we dropped the mooring lines at 6:30 am. Just a few minutes after leaving the mooring field we would slip under the Bridge of Lions that connects St Augustine Island with the mainland. Next to the bridge is a big tall ship, the El Galeon, a replica tall-ship from the Spanish colonial period. (Pic 1). As we were taking pictures of the tall ship we noticed a sailboat broadside on the other side of the bridge. (Pic 2). Something was terribly wrong! The mast of the sailboat was against the bridge and the hull was being swept under the bridge. (Pic 3 &4). There were emergency vehicles on the bridge with flashing lights but no one on the sailboat or boats on the water. At first we thought the boat may have drug anchor or slipped off its mooring ball but ...

Kevin McCarthy for Majority Leader? Has the GOP learned a *** thing? Do they respect conservatives? Clearly the answer is no. They are still out to destroy us: Kevin McCarthy is going to be the new Majority Leader? *** Kevin McCarthy participated in that retreat for Republicans at the Ritz-Carlton on Amelia Island, Fla. The event was hosted by the Republican Main Street Partnership, which is a group run by representative-turned-lobbyist Steve LaTourette aimed at defeating conservatives and "destroying Tea Party candidates." The organization includes big labor unions and even George Soros connected money among its donors. The American Conservative Union rated McCarthy at 72 percent compared with 84 percent for Cantor; Heritage Action ratings place Cantor at 53 percent and McCarthy at 42 percent; and Club for Growth had Cantor at 68 percent and McCarthy at 53 percent. Moving away from conservative groups, the National Journal rated Cantor the 80th most conservative member of the House while McCarthy was 1 . ...

Florida's most romantic beaches There's no doubt that Florida is blessed with a slew of beautiful beaches packed with unspoiled dunes, coastal woodlands and tidal streams, all offering a rich habitat for loads of wildlife and photo-worthy backdrops galore. But which ones are best for couples looking for a romantic getaway? Here are a few we think you'll love. Amelia Island For most, an uncrowded beach is the key to a romantic getaway. Peace and quiet. Just the gentle roll of the waves. If that is your cup of tea, well, Amelia Island delivers. Not to mention, this is one of the only beaches on Florida's east coast that allows horseback riding on its golden sands. Choose sunrise or sunset, they are equally romantic. If you're up for a marshmallow-roasting session, the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort does beach bonfires nightly from June through August. Nearby, you can also sign up for a kayaking tour of the salt marshes. This is where the wildlife shows up. You've got everything from microscopic, singl ...

ADs agree on need for NCAA change, but not pace or practice Dan Wolken, USA TODAY Sports 6:02 p.m. EDT May 19, 2014 Kevin White is a college athletics lifer, a man who proudly calls himself a traditionalist and "conservative player" in his desire for the future. He also represents, as Duke's athletic director, one of the most pristine brands in college sports and an institution that takes the so-called "student-athlete" model more seriously than most. But at age 63, White is no different now than most of his counterparts across big-time college sports in conceding that some of the most fundamental things – all the way down to the definition of "amateurism" – are on the precipice of being recalibrated in significant ways. Even if the consequences of doing so still aren't fully understood. "I'm not unlike everybody else. I have concerns about where we're heading," White told USA TODAY Sports at last week's ACC spring meetings in Amelia Island, Fla. "But one of the things that I find myself at this age t ...

GOP Establishment Declares All-Out War on the Tea Party If you had any doubts that the Republican Establishment was fighting a no-holds-barred civil war against grass-roots conservatives and the Tea Party, wonder no more. This weekend, House Speaker John Boehner reportedly will attend a $5,000-a-head Amelia Island, Fla., event. It’s sponsored by the anti-Tea Party group Republican Main Street Partnership and heavily funded by labor unions. Boehner’s No. 2 guy in the Republican House, Eric Cantor, will also be in attendance along with 25 other Republican Congressmen. If you wonder why GOP opposition to President Obama’s policies is so weak, look no further than the not-so-dynamic duo of Boehner and Cantor. Neither one of them would have gotten their positions of power if it wasn’t for the strong support of Tea Party Republicans in the 2010 midterm election. But they seem to have forgotten that and have a strong dislike for Tea Party supporters who helped them take the House. Ballot BoxSteve LaToure ...

First, I would like to thank the Amelia Island Network for allowing this original post to remain for the past year. I am a fourth generation Amelia Island native and a past Folio Weekly “Bouquet” recipient for my contributions to this community. I respectfully ask for this post to remain as well. Please read my original post and all of the comments. Almost everyone agreed that Sliders was doing a great thing for our environment with their dune restoration project and I was wrong in assuming these actions had ulterior motives. In Friday’s News Leader, I was very disheartened to see the large photo advertisement of Sliders with a GIANT inflatable waterslide directly on the “Dune Restoration Area”. If you look closely at the photo, you can even read the sign, “Dune Restoration in Progress”. So, to recap: In June 2013 Sliders mowed down ancient native sand dunes in front of their establishment with the reported approval of YOUR Department of Environmental Protection Agency. If you go to the m .. ...

Serendipity: We ran into a concert with actor/storyteller/songwriter Ronny Cox at 150 yr. old St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Amelia Island, FL. Most famous for playing the guitar with the kid on the banjo "Dueling Banjos" in "Deliverance" (40 years ago!). It was his first role but he's been in 150 film/TV shows. Robocop, Star Trek Next Generation, Total Recall, Beverly Hills Cop, Stargate, St. Elsewhere, etc. Deliverance was both his and Ned Beatty's first film roles. Neat guy and he shook everyone's hands. Delightful evening.
Fun Fact Friday: Did you know Amelia Island is called the Isle of 8 Flags?

BENNETT Hubert C. Bennett was born in Chester, Florida, July 7, 1925, to Luther William Bennett and Anna Josephine (Josie) Church Bennett. He was the fifth of nine living children. The family moved to Amelia Island when he was a baby and Hubert attended school and was part of the class of 1944. Fernandina Beach is known for its shrimp and Hubert worked with his older brothers on the family shrimp boats. He also worked in the local paper mills. He met his bride to be, Betty Hodges, of Callahan, Florida, while waiting on the old Amelia Island drawbridge to close. They married on June 21, 1945. Their love lasted 68 years and blessed them with a daughter and two sons who all became Christians at an early age, partially because of the testimony of the life of their father: Diane, born in 1946, Michael, born in 1951 and Wade, born in 1954. The family moved to Palatka, Florida in 1948 where Hubert worked for the new paper mill. The family then relocated to Jacksonville in 1953 and Hubert worked at St. Regis Pape ...

American Beach is a historic beach community popular with African-American vacationers. It is located north of Jacksonville, Florida on Amelia Island in Nassau County. During the time of segregation and the Jim Crow era, African Americans were not allowed to swim at most of beaches in Jacksonville, and several black-only areas were created. American Beach was the largest and most popular, and was a community established by Abraham Lincoln Lewis, Florida's first black millionaire and president of the Afro-American Life Insurance Company. It contains American Beach Historic District. History[edit source | edit] American Beach was founded in 1935 by Florida's first black millionaire, Abraham Lincoln Lewis, and his Afro-American Life Insurance Company. The plan was for his employees to have a place to vacation and own homes for their families by the shore. Throughout the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s, summers at American Beach were busy with families, churches and children. The beach included hotels, restaurants, b ...
We Hollinger "kids" had a great boating expedition together all last week, during which, on one outing, we had a ceremony to disperse our late mom's ashes into the Atlantic Ocean. Fernandina Beach marina was a wonderful place to tie up, lots of really great restaurants and shops. It's a charming town on Amelia Island close to the Atlantic Ocean, beautiful beaches and surf. Our boat almost got in the way of a big dragon boat race in Jacksonville on the way back. For FB friends who love to read, I have some good recom-mendations: Ancient Light by John Banville, A Summons to Memphis, by Peter Taylor, and Grand Ambition, by Knecht. Brian is enjoying Neil Young's memoir, Waging Heavy Peace.
I have surprised myself by loving the ocean. Given that I grew up in north Jersey, going "Down the Shore" meant a 2 hour hot car-ride, sticky bodies within inches of each other on the beach, an ocean that ofttimes had more than just seaweed and fish floating by, and a guaranteed splinter or piece of gooey gum stuck in or to my foot.THANK goodness for my mate who took me to Amelia Island and gave me an entirely new perspective on "the beach".xo
