Letter From The Publisher Ed Bertha – ANTICIPATION

Monday, March 4, 2019

ANTICIPATION By Ed Bertha Anticipation “The joy of looking forward to a favorite activity – Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance” – Ed Bertha “People continue to be the most important component of The Amelia. They’re all “Car Guys” of one stripe or another. They are the reason people tell me that The Amelia is still, in our 24th year, the “Racers’ Concours” or “The Fun Concours”. These days, even with the rain, I still think it’s both.” Bill Warner Founder and Chairman Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance

The New Year is also the time to look forward — perhaps longing for a fresh start or possibly fearful of what is to come. How will you deal with it?

Are The Lights Going Out On Florida’s Charm? By Ed Bertha “Not One Florida Official Can Claim To Be Surprised By This Year’s Algae Crisis” bullsugar.org As early as January South Florida Water Management District officials warned that suspended bottom sediments in Lake Okeechobee, stirred up by Hurricane Irma and winter cold fronts, had spiked nutrient levels in the lake’s surface waters. So the lake started the year with unusually abundant food for algae. The other factors needed for major blooms–sunlight and warmth–are inevitable in South Florida. But discharges are not inevitable. The US Army Corps of Engineers Lake Okeechobee […]

What’s Next? By Ed Bertha “Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything” George Bernard Shaw While we had a fun run with REAL’s flipping book format it’s off to something new and different with the next edition. As one can imagine the flipping book was not intuitive to a designer or the printer. What was right facing became left facing. Pages are literally upside down and so on. Just a bit of controlled confusion, yet fun! In the next issue look for something innovative and fresh. And no, we did not copy […]
