The pirate and the cracker reach accord

When St. Augustine’s latest high-profile, millionaire attraction owner, Pat Croce, moves his Pirate and Treasure Museum from Key West to its completely rebuilt headquarters at 12 Castillo Drive South — at the epicenter and adjacent to St. Augustine’s soon-to-be-built Visitor Orientation Center — who does he employ to create and serve as registered agent for his new Florida limited liability company, Grand Marana, LLC, but local mayor-attorney Joseph L. Boles Jr.

Should guarantee fair winds and calm seas for our newly discovered, historically significant pirate heritage, don’t you think? Maybe all that hype over our Second Spanish Period isn’t such a big deal, after all? Arrrgh!
