Talks, camp set at Lighthouse

SAINT AUGUSTINE – Mike Usina and his friend Phil Castillo will be at the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum on Tuesday, March 12 to demonstrate Minorcan cast net making.

Usina, St. Augustine native and Minorcan descendent, has been recognized recently by the state as a recipient of a 2019 Florida Folk Heritage Award.

He celebrates his Minorcan heritage by crafting hand-made cast nets using techniques passed down by his ancestors who settled St. Augustine in the 18th century.
