Jim Goodwin, who makes our wonderful "ships in bottles" (see http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/goodwin1.htm), will have his creations featured in the upcoming motion picture, "The Lovely Bones," based on the novel by Alice Sebold.
Recently he sent me this link to the trailer for the movie: http://www.apple.com/trailers/paramount/thelovelybones/hd/ The main web site is www.lovelybones.com
You can see Jim's ships as well as one of his big models behind Mark Walberg. Jim says, "Look for the 'Mercury' with the Ocracoke Lighthouse."
This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is Lou Ann's story about volunteering for turtle patrol with the National Park Service. You can read her story and see her pictures here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news072809.htm.
