Island Chamber Singers Present Looking Back

Island Chamber Singers Present Looking BackIsland Chamber Singers present their fall Mozart concert, “Looking Back” on November 22, 2013 at 7:00 PM, and on Sunday November 24th at 3:00 PM.

As they celebrate their 10th anniversary season with style, the Island Chamber Singers will perform Mozart’s Requiem accompanied by a 10-piece orchestra on November 22 and 24 at the Amelia Plantation Chapel.

The concert is one of a pair being performed this season in which the singers are “looking back” in November by re-performing one of its most well-received works with a bigger orchestra and “looking forward” in March by performing something entirely new, Dave Brubeck’s Mass, To Hope, a Celebration and Songs and Sonnets by George Shearing. The orchestra for the Requiem will incorporate woodwinds as well as a string quartet, trumpet, timpani and piano.

The Requiem in D minor was composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1791 in Vienna. Mozart died on December 5 that year with the work unfinished. Franz Xaver Sussmayr, a student of Mozart, completed the requiem. In the movie Amadeus, the audience is led to believe that Mozart thought that the piece had been anonymously commissioned for his own funeral. It actually had been commissioned by Count Franz von Walsegg as a tribute to the Count’s wife on the anniversary of her death.

In addition to the Requiem, the November concert will feature six of Mozart’s vocal nocturnes that were written as entertainment music for parties in the 18th century.

The Fall concerts will take place at Amelia Plantation Chapel, 36 Bowman Road, Fernandina Beach, on Friday, November 22, at 7 pm and Sunday, November 24, at 3 pm. An opening night reception will be held in the Fellowship Hall immediately following Friday evening’s performance.

Tickets are $15 for adults when purchased in advance of concert day. They can be purchased online at islandchambersingers.com, from a member of Island Chamber Singers, at the Amelia Island Welcome Center, 102 Centre Street, (800) 226-3542, and AIFBY Chamber of Commerce, 961687 Gateway Blvd., Suite 101G (at A1A and Amelia Island Parkway), (904) 261-3248. Tickets my also be purchased at the door for $20. Tickets are always FREE for K-12 students.

American Teenaged Racer, with The Amelia Connections, Scores Big

American Teenaged Racer, with The Amelia Connections, Scores BigAmerican Austin Kimberly scored a British FF win at the Trac Mon Circuit in Wales (Photo: Keith Kimberly)

Amelia Island, FL – American teenager Austin Kimberly scored his first victory in the 2013 Avon Tyres National FF1600 Championship season at the 2.1 mile Anglesey road racing circuit in Wales (UK) May 12, 2013. After qualifying third, the young American racer led every lap of the 25.1 mile championship race for 1600cc Formula Ford racers.

A go-kart racer since the age of nine, Austin opened the British Racing Sports Car Club’s 2013 national Formula Ford Championship season with two podium appearances in the first two races of the 14-race national championship. Recently, Austin stood on the podium’s top step in just his third race.

The British National Formula Ford Championship is the nursery of World Champions. Emerson Fittipaldi, Ayrton Senna and Jenson Button all have Formula Ford Championships on their resumes.

In 2013 Austin joined forces with UK-based Cliff Dempsey Racing, a premier team in Britain’s ultra-competitive junior formula ranks. His Ray Formula Ford carries red, white and blue American livery and the internationally-recognized blue and white insignia of The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. Austin’s grandmother Joan Kimberly is a senior volunteer of The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in charge of volunteer relations, executive, staff and VIP lodging. She’s also her fast grandson’s biggest fan. Now in his senior year of high school, Austin traveled to England with his parents when his father Captain Keith Kimberly was assigned to liaison duty with the Royal Navy.

“‘The Amelia’ is often called ‘the racer’s concours’,” said Bill Warner, Founder and Chairman of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. “It’s right and appropriate that we support one of our own, especially in a series with the international stature of the Avon Tyre National Formula Ford Championship. Besides, our Amelia Concours logo looks great on Austin’s racecar with its star spangled red, white and blue American livery.”

Manipulation

ManipulationJacksonville, FL – From the writing team that brought you Indisputable Proof, named one of the “Best Fiction Books of 2012” by the Miami Examiner, comes their latest thriller, Manipulation (Suspense Publishing $2.99). Authors Gary Williams and Vicky Knerly take readers on a suspense-filled journey, exposing the darkness that lurks within the human soul.

On a Sunday morning, Florida couple James and Bethany Fenner discover they have won the $161-million state lottery. The middle-aged city auditor and his 31-year-old trophy wife dream of exquisite homes, high-performance cars, and lavish vacations. In order to collect, they must first make the three-hour drive from Jacksonville to the state capital in Tallahassee. Fearful that someone might rob them of the winning ticket, they tell no one and hire 29-year-old limousine driver, Riley Lake, to chauffeur them across the state in style. Lake, however, harbors a secret that he’s hidden since his childhood; a secret that will soon be exposed.

As Jacksonville Detective Kay Larsen investigates a series of gruesome murders where the female victims overdose from a powerful hallucinogen, the clues begin to mount against Riley Lake. When she discovers Lake is driving the Fenners, Larsen fears for the couple’s safety.

For the Fenners and Riley Lake, the journey will take them down a dark road fraught with sex, greed, and murder. Only when Detective Larsen digs deeper into Riley Lake’s past will a disturbing question arise: Who is the hunter and who is the prey?

Praise for Manipulation

“Manipulation” is a twisting, turning story exposing the most primal aspects of human behavior. It’s a classic tale of greed and lust, told with a fresh perspective that drives the story at a frenetic pace.. You won’t see the ending coming.. Williams and Knerly have done it again!”
Allison Leotta, author of Speak of the Devil

“Even veteran suspense readers will be kept guessing in Williams’ and Knerly’s gritty new thriller. With more turns than a mountain switchback, Manipulation plunges the reader into the blackest depths of the human soul, showing exactly how far some people are willing to go for sex, love and money.”
Lisa Clark O’Neill, author of Deception

Join Judie and Ally Thursday Night at Girls Night Out

Join Judie and Ally Thursday Night at Girls Night OutNow that Shrimp Festival is out of the way for 2013, my daughter, Ally, and I are are focusing on Zumba Fitness this week!

May’s Girl’s Night Out at Fifi’s Fine Resale on 8th Street in Fernandina Beach will be held this Thursday, May 9th, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM, and Ally and I will be demonstrating a variety of Zumba routines, just in time for Mother’s Day.

As a “Mom” it is pretty exciting to work with my youngest daughter while we team-teach a fun fitness program that raises your heart-rate and burns a few calories, too.

Zumba Fitness
Zumba Fitness is not your typical, aerobics-style counting of music, instead the music and chorography are international inspired by authentic beats and dance movements from around the world including salsa, cumbia, belly dance and more. Typically, we turn the lights down low and turn the music up to create a party atmosphere when we teach at CLUB 14 FITNESS. You do not need a dance background to attend; this class is designed to move your body and have some fun!

Zumba Gold
Zumba Gold follows the original Zumba concept and falls under the category of endurance training. Designed to keep the heart healthy and the circulatory system strong, Zumba Gold is approachable by all populations including those returning from injuries, the active older adult and unconditioned beginners. We like to call it Zumba Light because we have removed any steps that include sudden or sharp twisting of the knee or back, as well any jumping movements. While you still experience the exciting choreography of any of the Zumba Fitness programs, you will improve your balance and flexibility, and strengthen your heart, too. Among others, you’ll enjoy music and rhythms including Merengue, Cha-Cha, and some Rock and Roll!

Zumba Core
Zumba Core is a new discipline that focuses on choreographed, core conditioning routines. Zumba Core is not a class, it is a module Zumba instructors may choose to add to their licensing by continuing their Zumba Fitness Instructor trainings.

We traveled to Atlanta in July of 2011 to become licensed Zumba instructors after becoming addicted to the program taught by local Zumba Queen Jackie Norton. At the time, Ally was the youngest licensed instructor in NE Florida. In 2012, we earned our “Gold” license and I recently completed the new “Core” discipline.

Ally is my third child to graduate Fernandina Beach High School. She will graduate with the Class of 2013, and as of May 3rd she is one of 14 students who are now Certified Nursing Assistants, a program taught this year at FBHS and instructed by Teacher of the Year Mrs. Sharon Belcher.

Be sure to wear comfortable clothing and sneakers to Girl’s Night Out at Fifi’s. The event is free, but an RSVP is requested by Tuesday night to (904) 277-4430, so we can prepare plenty of refreshments!

We teach Zumba Fitness classes at CLUB 14 FITNESS, currently on Tuesdays evenings, from 6:40 to 7:40 PM.

Fifi’s Fine Resale Apparel is a nationally recognized resale store that offers quality merchandise at great prices with exceptional service, and is located at 1853 S. 8th Street on Amelia Island. For information about resale shopping or guidelines on consignment, please contact Jessica Miller, Owner, at (904) 277-4430 or fifis.amelia@gmail.com

Doug Smith

Doug Smith is an award-winning journalist with more than 30 years of successful achievement as an editor and writer with three of the most influential newspapers in the United States: Newsday, The New York Post, and USA Today.

In October 2001, Smith retired from a 15-year stint at USA Today where he was recognized as one of the world’s most preeminent and influential tennis writers. He covered numerous tennis events each year, including the Grand Slams – Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and U.S. Open. In addition Smith wrote a column – “Match Points” – on the USA Today website. Since his retirement, Smith has worked as a freelance journalist for several publications, including USA Today and The New York Times.

Smith routinely broke news in the tennis world. His 1992 world exclusive on the late Arthur Ashe having contracted AIDS prompted years of useful discourse in newsrooms, as well as in the nation’s journalism schools. He wrote numerous cover stories and introspective features on the superstars of tennis – Andre Agassi, Jennifer Capriati, Pete Sampras and the Williams sisters, Venus and Serena. Junior players consistently sought the byline, “By Doug Smith” as he monitored their development.

Although tennis has been his major racket, Smith distinguished himself in writing about other sports throughout his career. Less than a month after joining USA Today, he became the lead reporter on the paper’s coverage of the death of Len Bias. Smith got an exclusive interview with Bias’ parents for a cover story and assisted with other stories in the paper’s two-part series about the Maryland basketball star, who died of a cocaine overdose in 1986.

In recognition of his sustained excellence in tennis reporting and writing, Smith is the recipient of numerous awards, including the U.S. Tennis Association Lifetime Achievement Award (1988), the Women’s Tennis Association Media Person of the Year (1989), (1995), Tennis Week Great American Writing Award (for deadline writing) in 1990 and 2000, and the U.S. Tennis Association/Mid-Atlantic Section’s Outstanding Media Press Award (2012).

Same Same, by Doug Smith

Smith’s latest project, his novel, Same Same is available in hardback, paperback, and ebook on amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, googlebooks.com and various book-selling sites.

Same Same
Samuel Lewis, the youngest of seven children born to African-American working-class parents, and Hamilton Armstrong III, the only son of a wealthy white family and whose father is the local leader of the Ku Klux Klan, grow up in the same small Virginia town, but live worlds apart. They meet through mischief and despite the racial barriers of the pre-Civil Rights era, a life-long friendship is formed.

Both driven by a passion for writing, they begin journalism careers at different New York newspapers, experience dangerous, as well as raunchy times in Vietnam and enter the sunset years of their careers at the same Atlanta newspaper where they are dueling political columnists: Sam provides the conservative viewpoint and Ham pens the liberal perspective. Unexpected excitement enters their lives as a bomb meant for Sam kills his mentor in the midst of their coverage of Barack Obama’s rise to the presidency.

Ethereal Desire by Kate Alister Now AvailableEthereal Desire is a new release by Kate Alister, available at www.ellorascave.com.

Young veterinarian, Brandy Taylor, focuses her time on building her practice. She needs to care for an orphaned baby bull that she’s birthed and wonders where she’ll house the animal until it’s weaned. Luke Callahan comes to the rescue, offering his time and his pole barn. Brandy hadn’t counted on meeting a man who’s personality and body is as irresistible as his. She jokingly thinks he’s too good to be real and must have come from another planet.

Truth is, she’s right. Unknown to Brandy, Luke is a highly intelligent ethereal being, a spirit from the planet Caddock. Before this visit to Earth, he’s never had a physical body. His mission is to experience human emotions and hopes the lovely vet will teach him how to feel. When he first sees Brandy, Luke wonders why the full mounds on the her chest, the curve of her rounded hips, and her long legs draws his eyes and holds them? He’s about to find out.

Imagine what our world would be like if we could eliminate the negative side of our human nature such as greed and violence and retain only the wonderful aspects like joy and love.

Kate Alister is an award winning author who loves animals and the beach where she receives her inspiration. She lives with her loving husband and three mischievous cats in northern Florida.
