     The weather was a little damp; and yet we had a great time together. Jan is learning how to hand-quilt on the quilt in the frame. We enjoy the times that we can sit around and catch up with what’s happening in our lives.
     Johnny, the Old Sewing Machine Man, had to cancel on his scheduled visit on Wednesday. We’ll reschedule in a few months.
     Bobbi in Orlando sent us a star top made with Gator fabric and a quilt made by Jennie of Wandering Stitches. Both are for sale.
     The Backyard Pickers are scheduled to be here June 2. Debbie, a fiddler, should be back with us. School will be out so she can join us again. We’ve missed her.


Bobbi made this great Gator quilt top.


Jennie of Wandering Stitches donated this beautiful quilt. Thanks so much.


Lions Club Says 'Thank You'

Students from Yankeetown School attend the last Middle School Social of this school year on Friday (May 18). The Inglis-Yankeetown Lions Club hosted the last of three Middle School Socials of the 2017-2018 school year. The purpose of these socials was to give the 6th, 7th and 8th graders a safe place to hang out together outside of school and to have fun. These socials were attended by 25 to 30 students (half the student body of the Middle School). There was dancing, participation in games, and enjoyment of food and beverages. It was social! The Lions Club thanks everyone who helped make these gatherings fun and successful. To the students - Thanks for coming, the club literally could not have done it without you. And thanks for being awesome people - club members enjoyed getting to know every one of you. To Melody Carson – Thank You for all your help getting this program off the ground, from coordinating between the Lions Club and the students to attending the Socials. You were an integral part in the success of these gatherings. To Brother’s Pizza in Crystal River - Thank You for helping us make these socials successful and tasty. To the parents of the students who attended - Thank you for sharing your kids with us. They were well-behaved, polite, respectful and helpful.

Horseshoe crab survey succeeds

     BRONSON --
Nature Coast Master Gardeners, naturalists and citizens count success one crab at a time.

     The Atlantic horseshoe crab (Limulus polyphemus) is a marine chelicerate arthropod. Despite its name, it is more closely related to spiders, ticks, and scorpions.
     “Limulus watch” is a citizen science initiative whose goal is to identify, tag and record horseshoe crab population numbers to better manage these important marine animals.
     “Seventeen volunteers were trained in 2016, 79 in 2017 and 113 unique participants in 2018,” reported Savannah Berry, Ph.D., University of Florida regional specialized agent - coastal ecosystems, during the season finale at Nature Coast Biological Station on Cedar Key.
     Resighting is one method of tracking crab migration, populations and health. Fall 2017 – Spring 2018 saw a 6.3 percent resighting rate. Several resights were credited to the general public, being reported by citizens at large. Dr. Jane Brockmann, UF emeritus professor, and Tiffany Black, FWC Horseshoe Crab Survey Coordinator presented resighting pins, provided by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service.
     “Pins are awarded by the Service when qualifying tag information is reported,” Brockmann said.
     The Migrating Crab Award, for surveying the most sites in one season, was presented to Linda Redditt and Linda “Digger” Headley.
     The Golden Awl Award was presented to Deborah Goad in recognition of the most tagged crabs. Goad bagged the Terminal Molt Award for most volunteer hours during the season.
     Goad (John) and George, provided leadership to the Seahorse Key sites. They made surveying a pleasant experience for novice participants Carol “Crab Whisperer” Wood and myself. I admit being hesitant to handle crabs, especially with all the flailing legs. However, I soon found my niche and three hours of measuring and tagging passed quickly.
     On full and new moons in fall and spring, horseshoe crabs congregate at high tide to breed. They prefer sandy sites in bays or inlets, protected from waves. Crab watch participants count and record horseshoe crab numbers at specific sites. Mating pair as well as single “satellite” males are included in the count. At the same time, surveyors scout for previously tagged “resight” crabs.
Crabs are collected, weighed and data recorded. Measurement is taken at the shell’s widest point. Shell damage, missing limbs, tail injury and approximate age are documented. Identification tag number are assigned. A small hole is made through the shell and the barbed tag installed. Typically, identification tags are placed on the left side of the shell. That’s the crabs left, when tail is pointed toward you. Tagged crabc are released at shoreline.
     Florida’s horseshoe crabs serve an important ecological function. Its eggs are a food source for migratory birds and shore birds. Sea turtles, fish and true crabs feed on eggs and horseshoe larva.
Along the northeast United States, horseshoe crabs are harvested for used in human medicine. Wild caught horseshoe crabs are delivered to laboratories where the heart is punctured and some blood extracted. Most horseshoe crabs survive the procedure and are released alive.
     Horseshoe crabs have blue, copper-based blood that contains a special clotting agent, Limulus Amebocyte Lysate (LAL). LAL clots when exposed to endotoxins, chemical poisons released by certain infectious bacteria. The LAL test is extremely sensitive. As a result, it is the standard for testing all injectables since 1987. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, requires an LAL test on all human and animal injectable and intravenous drugs, on medical devices used to deliver these injectable drugs, and on all prosthetic devices (such as hip replacements or heart valves).
     Horseshoe crabs don’t bite or sting, however they do have sharp spines along the lower rim of the shell. Therefore, handle them from the front upper portion of the shell. Gently lift crabs from the sand by placing your hands around the front edges of the shell with the tail facing away from you. Never pick up a crab by its tail. This may permanently damage the joint at its base or break the tail. The tail helps to steer and right the crab if turned upside down. Report the tag number and state location to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission. The toll-free number, 1-866-252-9326, is on the tag. Or e-mail horseshoe@fwc.state.fl.us.
     Black congratulated participants for launching these original Florida sites. Seven areas on Cedar Key Island (Levy County), New Smyrna Beach (Volusia County) and Fort Desoto (Pinellas County). In 2017, two sites at Bald Point State Park (Franklin County), Shired Island (Dixie County) and Hagans Cove (Taylor County) were added. Spring of 2018 brought in an additional three beaches at Fort Clinch State Park (Nassau County). Plans are to expand to 40 coastal sites in 2019.
     Contact Tiffany Black at 352-543-1080 or send her an email at tiffany.black@myfwc.com to participate in the next survey or for more information.

Sea turtle nesting begins
in May on many beaches

Published May 11, 2018 at 6:48 a.m.
Written By the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission

     FLORIDA -- May is the beginning of sea turtle nesting season on many of Florida’s sandy beaches. Beachfront property owners and beach visitors can help nesting turtles and hatchlings by turning off or shielding lights that are visible from the beach at night.
     “People’s efforts to keep our beaches as dark as possible at night, without affecting human safety, can make a tremendous difference for nesting sea turtles,” said Robbin Trindell, head of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) sea turtle management program. “Female sea turtles and their hatchlings can be disturbed or confused by artificial light, whether it comes from a house, a flashlight or a cellphone camera.”
     Sea turtle nesting is starting now on beaches from the Gulf coast, including northwest Florida, to the state’s northeast Atlantic coast and from Miami-Dade County south to the Keys. Nesting began earlier in March along Florida’s southeast Atlantic coast from Brevard County south to Broward County.
     Florida is a critically important destination for nesting sea turtles. More loggerhead turtles nest here than anywhere else in the continental United States, with nearly 97,000 loggerhead nests counted statewide during the 2017 nesting season. Leatherback and green sea turtles also nest in significant numbers in Florida.
     What are the basics of being sea turtle-friendly?
     It’s a sea turtle night, turn off the light – After sundown, turn off any lights not necessary for human safety. Use long wavelength amber LED lamps for lights that must stay lit and shield lights so they are not visible from the beach. Remember to close shades or curtains.
Sea turtles get lost in the light – On the beach at night, don’t take flash photos or use bright cellphones or flashlights.
     Sea turtles are protected and must be respected – Stay back and give sea turtles space if you see one on the beach at night. Don’t touch a nesting turtle because it may leave the beach without nesting if disturbed. Remember, it is illegal to harm or disturb nesting sea turtles, their nests, eggs or hatchlings.
     Clear the way at the end of the day – Beach furniture, canopies, boats and toys left behind on the sand may become obstacles that block nesting and hatchling turtles. Fill in any holes dug in the sand.
     Help hatchings home by leaving them alone – Do not handle hatchlings crawling toward the water. Any interference or disturbance by people, such as getting too close or taking flash photos, increases the chances the hatchlings will get confused, go in the wrong direction and not reach the ocean quickly. That makes them vulnerable to dehydration, exhaustion and predators.      As with all wildlife, watching from a distance is best.
     Buildings and other structures along the beach that need lights for human safety can be lit with long wavelength amber LED bulbs in a downward-directed, well-shielded fixture that is not visible from the beach. The FWC tests lights submitted by manufacturers to see if they meet our “Keep it long (wavelength), Keep it low (lumens and mounting height) and Keep it shielded” requirement. Approved fixtures are less likely to impact nesting or hatchling sea turtles. The agency maintains a list of these certified wildlife-friendly fixtures so property owners along      Florida’s coastlines can easily find options that work for human and sea turtle safety. The list is available at http://myfwc.com/Conservation by clicking on “How You Can Conserve,” “Wildlife Lighting” and then “Certified.”
     The FWC works to conserve Florida sea turtles, including coordinating nesting beach survey programs around the state. People can help by reporting sick, injured, entangled or dead sea turtles to the FWC’s Wildlife Alert Hotline: 1-888-404-3922, #FWC or *FWC on a cellphone or text Tip@MyFWC.com.
