New Nassau County hurricane evacuation zones, which have been approved by the Florida Division of Emergency Management, have been released beginning for the 2014 hurricane season. The new evacuation zones are b ased on storm surge, which is water that is pushed toward the shore by the hurricane force of winds. Advancing surge, combined with normal tides, creates hurricane storm tide. This can increase water levels 15 feet or more. Storm surge is often the greatest threat to life and property from a hurricane. T he storm surge zones were generated by computer models that utilized some of the most technologically advanced data of its kind to determine comprehensive storm s urge for Northeast Florida. Based o n this comprehensive storm surge, the impacted area of the county and the number of residents and businesses in an evacuation zone has increased dramatically, according to Nassau County Emergency Management. C ounty Emergency Management a nd the Nassau County Property A ppraisers GIS director reviewed the storm surge for Nassau County to complete the new evacuation zones. Evacuation zones now reach the West Side of the county, along the St. Marys River, and include everything east of the Intracoastal W ater way ( Shave Bridge). Other factors were t aken into consideration when creati ng the zones, such as low-lying areas, areas with historical flooding problems and access points. New this upcoming year the National Hur ricane Center will generate in real time and issue potential stor m sur ge flooding maps. This map w ill show geographical areas where i nundation from storm surge could o ccur, and how high above ground the water could reach in those areas. This is an experimental product. The map will be experimental for at least two years, during which time comments fr om users will be solicited and g athered. Here are some things to know about this map: The first map will usually be issued at the same time as the initialh urricane watch, or in some cases, with a tropical storm watch. The map is based on the latest forecast track No to gas tax hike MARY MAGUIRE News-Leader N o new gas tax. The county commission rejected a proposal Monday night to add five cents to the price of a gallon of gasoline to help fund roadway maintenance. H eres the vote. Commission Chair Barry Holloway: No. Commissioner Steve Kelley: No. Commissioner Walter Jr Boatright: Yes. Commissioner Pat Edwards: Yes. C ommissioner Danny Leeper: Yes. W hile a majority of commissioners s upported the increase, this vote needed at least four out of five commissioners to say yes. Its disappointing, said Leeper. Federal and state funding is dropping, and weve got to look for ways to have everyone share in the cost. S uppor ters contend that the tax is n eeded to bolster the budget. Its not fun and games and looking at the books were in the red, said Edwar d s. W e have to make sure the county is in the black. I support a gas tax. Budget of ficials said the nickel incr ease in the price-per -gallon would have raised $1.5 million per year. Thats about the same amount of money thec ounty now spends on its pavement management plan.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 3A W EDNESDAY M AY 14, 2014 NEWS News-Leader five years and would have started Jan. 1. Nassau County could use the money. Budget of ficials are projecting a $10 million to $12 million shortfall in the fiscal 2014-15 budget. C ounty Manager Ted Selby and Budget D ir ector Shanea Jones made a visual effort to u nderscore the countys need for more cash. They put two large maps of the county on a wall and marked both with roadway projects. One map was flush with red highlights. One wasnt. And this latter one represented existing conditions. T he point: Roadway maintenance is b eing cancelled or defer r ed because money is s car c e. Ther e hasnt been a county property tax increase for six years, though the cost of everything the county does has steadily increased over that time, including roadway maintenance, say of ficials. Everything went up. Somehow or another w eve got to come up with another revenue s tr eam, said Edwar ds. B ut this is an election year for Holloway and Kelley and voters dont like tax hikes. Thats an important consideration for politicians who want to keep their job. Kelley said his vote to reject the fuel tax incr ease was not politically motivated. I have 15 vehicles in my business and Im not going to ask the common man to pay moree ither , said Kelley who owns a pest contr ol com p any in Fer n andina Beach. How about truckers and tourists who use the roads? I don t want to share the costs with tourists either. We need tourists, said Kelley, after them eeting. H olloway declined comment Monday night on h is vote. Under the proposal, the 5-cent gas tax would have expir e d in five years. It did not apply to diesel fuel. The county already imposes a 6-cent gas tax to help pay off multimillion-dollar loans for roadway projects. There is also another 1-cent gas tax f or capital projects. U nder state statute, county of f icials ar e allowed to apply up to 12 cents in gasoline taxes. But, for now, the county is holding at 7 cents. The boar d discussion was brief, but ther e was concer n that futur e commissioners would over ride any attempts to sunset the proposed 5-cent gas tax. I dont have confidence in government and I a re one, said Kelley. U nder the r u les of this vote, just one public hearing was needed. Typically, there are two. The county heard from three people who said additional taxes ar e bur d ensome. Ther e was mention that the 5-cent gas would send people to Jacksonville or Georgia to fill up their tank. That didnt sound like a smart idea to B oatright, who said the gas tax is better than a p roperty tax increase. Spend two gallons to save five cents? That s their prerogative, said Boatright. firstname.lastname@example.org GAS C ontinued from 1A a nd intensity for the tropical cyclone, and takes into account likely forecast errors.

For the past two years, he has volunteered with Builders Care of Nassau County as part o f a crew that builds ramps for those who have difficulty getting in and out of their homes. I heard about it through a church announcement at Memorial United Methodist Church. I really feel good about h elping people live a better quality of life, said Weller. We did a ramp for a heavy, severely handicapped man whose dad was having difficulty getting him in and out of the house. Building a ramp enabled him to get in and out without assistance and he was thrilled to n ot to be confined in the house due to lack of access, he said. W eller also recalled how pleased a couple of senior ladies were who could live alone more securely after their ramps were installed. They were able to exit their homes with confidence andw ithout help. Weller, his wife Linda and daughter Ann volunteer with Barnabas and with the Interfaith Dinner Network. He w as a guardian ad litem in Ocala before moving to Nassau C ounty three years ago. The Wellers have three other grown children, Beth, Amy and Richard. To date, Builders Care has built 100 ramps with supplies purchased through donations. F ernandina Lumber and Home Depot have made in-kind donat ions, as did various homebuilders before the housing crash, notes Mac Morris, Nassau County project manager.

ANGELA DAUGHTRY News-Leader A retail distillery is in the planning stages in downtown Fernandina Beach, to be located in a vacant commercial building at 115 S. Second St. T he new business is the brainchild of former airline con-s ultant Roger Morenc of Brunswick, Ga., who is plann ing to start with distilled rums as a cornerstone product. The distillery, called Marlin & Barrell, will offer tastings and tours, and may also be available f or private parties and events, according to Morenc. Today, most spirits consumed are really only made by a handful of large distilleries, Morenc wrote in an email. They make their product, and thats great, but the amount of variety and innovation in produ ct development is nowhere what it will be as craft distiller-i es continue to pop up and push the envelope. The complexity of product types, flavors and c ombinations of raw media, processing and aging is, to me, wonderfully exciting. Morenc said he is also excite d about the prospect of moving his family to Amelia Island as the business gets going. e reviewed a good number of markets to set up a dist illery in prior to our decision, Morenc says. As it turns out, the attractiveness of Amelia Island in terms of being a livable community with good schools f or our children helped tip the scales for us. Florida is a great produce and farming state, Morenc says, Wed love to bring those flavors forward in our products. S o maybe someday well prod uce a honey brandy or a local t riple sec liqueur, but how that exactly manifests itself is something only time will tell. Morenc says he is planning on a brightly lit tasting room that is open to the distillery area so guests can connect with w hat were doing. I foresee that well do v odka, gin and someday an America r y e whiskey Mor enc says. The number of employees Morenc hires will depend on whether he is able to get distribution rights. We are trying to work with t he city to obtain changes so t hat we have distribution rights like other craft distilleries in Florida, Morenc says. The city has been really great so far, but we just havent worked through the process yet. ... Im optimistic it all works out and then we seej obs come along with what w ere trying to accomplish. T he new distiller y pr oject is located in the Community Redevelopment Area, and has received approval by both the Historic District Council and the Technical Review Committee. Morenc said he hoped to have final approvalsf rom federal, state and city leve ls within the next few months and constr u ction completed by the end of summer. adaughtr y@f bne w sleader com There is usually a price to be paid for growth with the environment, with density, with lifestyles. B ut sometimes the price is right. The payoff exceedst he costs. An example is the breatht aking Stadium golf course at Sawgrass Country Club. Here, growth has trumped any unfavorable impacts. Its hard to find fault in the prist ine course and The Players Championship eventh eld there this past week. The fabulously run golf e vent provides entertainment to residents as well as draws attention from around the world, showcasing the Jacksonville Beaches and North Florida. It again provided theatrical episodes t his week, further enriching its history. From a historical pers pective, the footage of d evelopers transforming t hick woods and marshes into the Stadium course is a s ight to behold. Of course, there were some environmental repercussions. However, the final product neatly blended the contrastso f nature with commerce. There are other examp les of effective growth in North Florida. The Amelia I sland Plantation and The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. The St. Augustine Amphitheater The St. Johns Town Center. And in Yulee, the North Hampton and Amelia National develop m ents and golf courses. M ore growth lies a head. Our area draws too much recognition and acclaim to not be desired by outsiders. As mor e people visit here and relocate here, developers and commercial inter ests will continue to fol l ow A lready, within Nassau C ounty, the Terra Point project in Yulee will be expansive, encompassing thousands of homes, with a blend of parks and retail venues. In Bryceville, the Crawford Diamond pr oper ty will even t ually engage some major i ndustry. A stage/performance area is being discussed for the Main Beach area in Fernandina Beach, as is a riverfront park in historic downtown as part of longawaited marina impr ove ments. Inevitably, there will be impacts o n traffic, parking,r outines. You c ant stop growth, however. You cant put a morat orium on it, or elsea n area will decay and d ie. You must instead manage it. High-demand properties will be acquired for business and industrial purposes. And we have a lot of them here, with our water and beaches a nd accessible acreage. Embracing growth with reasonable and effective p olicies is the best alternat ive. We should continue to d o that here. Look at the beach accesse s along South Fletcher and on A1A (on Amelia Island These were planned and executed by our forefathers. And the Egans CreekG reenway is enjoyed by many residents while b ecoming a protective refuge for raccoons and o tters and a plethora of birds. Just think. The Amelia Island Plantation pr oper t y used to be strip mines, the St. Johns Town Center was at one time dair y land and N or th Hampton and Amelia N ational were pine-tree f orests. In each case, the outcome significantly outweighed the previous conditions. Anti-growth factions must be willing to compromise on this impor tant issue.

U sing money involves a lot more than just spending it, a t alent that seems to come naturally to everyone. But how about saving, budgeting, borrowing, investing? Surveys show that financial literacy a mong teenagers, the ability to handle personal finances, is s adly lacking. No more than a third of teens know how to balance a checkbook, and even fewer understand how credit cards work. A cooperative program between Boys & Girls Clubs ofA merica and the Charles Schwab Foundation aims to h elp fix that problem. The foundation is a non-profit organizat ion established by Charles Schwab, founder of the highly successful brokerage firm. His daughter, Carrie Schwab-Pomerantz, has been foundation president for 10 years. She remembers her teen years all too well, working and saving into her 20s while her dad was struggling to succeed. C arrie is determined to help youngsters gain the financial k nowledge she had to learn the hard way and turned to Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA W ith research and program development funded by the F oundation, BGCA has developed a program called Money Matters: Make It Count which has been adopted by over half of the 2,700 clubs nationally. The program involves a number of hour-long sessions f or teens in an informal, group setting facilitated by a knowle dgeable adult. There are five basic sections that cover issues such as Budgeting, Saving, Planning for College Financially and Credit & Debt. Damon Williams of BGCA says: We dont want to be S chool, Part 2. The object is to present an enjoyable, intera ctive discussion of how financial life works and how to make i t work for teenagers.

M ARY MAGUIRE News-Leader How much does it cost North Floridas economy to have people sit in traffic? $316 million annually. Add a vehicle crash to the mix, and sitting in traffic costs $ 526 million each year. The North Florida Transport ation Planning Organization (North Florida TPO) reported those numbers from the state in a public hearing last month in Yulee. And, they say, we move too much freight for that kind of c ongestion, 100 million tons at last count. So, this message from a video played at the meeting might be cause for concern. The future as Americas logistic center is in jeopardy because of congestion. And as the population grows t he situation could get worse, say officials. The population is expected to about double to two million people by the year 2040, said Jeanette Berk, a consultant for the organization. We need to plan now The North Florida TPO leads a four-county effort to plan and fund transportation resources. Officials are working now on a long-range plan known as P ath Forward 2040 in Nassau, Duval, Clay and St. Johns counties. The organization conducts an update every five years, completing the 2035 plan in 2009. There is a need to look so far down the road because it takes years of planning to build transp ortation infrastructure. They also take time to pay for, and money is a concern. Our needs are bigger than the funding available, said Berk, who is chief transportation planner for HNTB Corp. in St. Augustine and has been in the business for 25 years. B ut right now, its wish-list time and that means ignore the budget and focus on the dream. As part of their work, the organization asks the public for input. ell us whats important? Whats not? said Berk. The North Florida TPO held a series of public meetings late last month in each county asking for input about the need for roads, transit systems, moving freight by train or at ports, bike paths and sidewalks for pedest rians. The organization sent five people, including three consultants, to the local meeting held April 23 at the county administration building. About a dozen large maps of the region were propped on easels and marked with dizzyi ng sets of lines and dotted lines in primary colors. Each line identified proposed projects. Participants were asked to vote for projects by dropping tokens into glass cylinders positioned at various projects. The countys Director of Growth Management Peter K ing dropped tokens into a plan for more bike paths and another for intelligent controls, such as setting traffic lights to the number of cars at an intersection rather than to a timer. Thats smart planning, said King. And realistic. The state is considering intelligent controls, also known as adaptive traffic lights, for A1A that would come with the expansion project starting this fall. Details are still in the planning s tages but the first light to make the switch is targeted at the US 17 and A1A intersection, say officials. Organizers also offered lists of the proposed projects in Nassau County, including the expansion of US 17 north of A1A to four lanes; adding exp ress bus service to Jacksonville from Yulee and building a commuter rail service to Jacksonville from Fernandina Beach. T here is also a proposed f reight plan to add a cruise or c argo berth to the Port of Fernandina. At this point, it s all optimistic goals. But the future has to start somewhere. For the Path Forward 2035 plan, which was called Envision 2 035, for example, a commuter rail from Jacksonville to Yulee was put on the list for $125 million. That project is still under consideration. Is it moving forward? Not at this point, said Marci Larson, public affairs m anager for the North Florida TPO. Its all about money. Its all about funding. But Larson says it has to get into the long-range plan to secure federal funding. So how many 2035 projects have been completed? None, said Larson. It takes time, and its a moving target with a lot of planning. Such as securing easements and mitigating environmental considerations. The list of priority projects can be found online at www.northfloridatpo.com. The l ist is updated each August. This is a federally mandated process, said Larson. Larson said that a typical project from initial idea to finish c an take 12 years. T he Nor th Florida TPO is c oming back in September for a public meeting on the numbers, specifically attaching project proposals with a cost-feasibility plan. Where will the jobs be? Where will the growth be? T hats important, said Larson. She said for the first time, the ports are on the list. Its important how you move freight, because that impacts the roadways, said Larson. And rails. There is ability to move freight out of region, whether its going to the M idwest, south or north. But keep a Nov. 14 deadline in mind. Thats when the North Florida TPO needs to wrap up its work. The final report is due in December. Commissioner Danny Leeper, who serves on the North Florida TPO board, attended t he meeting but did not take part in the presentation. Public Works Director Scott Herring was there. So were representatives from the Amelia Island Fernandina Beach Yulee Chamber of Commerce. Who wasnt? No one from the general public. Its Wednesday, and thats a church night for many people, said John Finotti, a media strategist for the organization. The information is available o nline, and the public is invited t o of fer input on the North F lorida TPO website at www.northfloridatpo.com. mmaguire@fbnew 6 A CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK W EDNESDAY M AY 14, 2014 NEWS News-Leader Sitting in traffic wastes millions of dollars ONLY1WEEK LEFT*Cash Price*NOW60%OFFEverything in the Store ALLTABLES, SHELVES AND DISPLAYS MUST GO.

Traffic to double by 2040 MARY MAGUIRE News-Leader If you think there are more cars and trucks on A1A in Nassau County every day, you ar e right. T ransportation officials e xpect a daily average of 32,000 v ehicles on the r o adway fr om I-95 to Old Nassauville Road by 2040. Thats more than double the 14,700 daily average in 2012, the latest numbers available. The Florida Depar tment of T ransportation (FDOToje cts the daily average will be 1 7,700 in 2020, and 21,200 by 2030. But FDOT says relief is coming. The state is widening the roadway from I-95 to Old Nassauville Road star ting this fall, increasing the number of traffic lanes to six, from four. B ut officials have another p lan to r educe congestion along t he roadway. They will tie green, yellow and red lights to the number of cars on the r o adway in r eal-time. Right now the signals ar e programmed to change to green when a lot of cars are expected, such as the morning and evening r ush. But that s like s etting the alarm clock everyday to 7 a.m., even on the days when you have to get out of bed at 6 a.m. Its outdated, said Charles Houston, a traf fic engineer for Nassau County. Drivers should notice significant improvement with the new system. T his approach is called an Adaptive Traffic Signal System. But it wont be up and running for a few years, said Houston. Its because you need a b unch of them along the corrid or for the system to work, s aid Houston. So, were starting at the light at 17, but we need to get a few mor e in place to be ef fective. Accor ding to FDOTs project manager Will Lyons, the system upgrade will add 5 percent to the $550,000 estimate to constr uct the signalization plan. I n an email he said the computerized brains of the system will be located in Nassau County s traf f ic engineering office. While Adaptive T raf fic Signal systems are new to the county, they have been used ar ound the world since the 1 970s. email@example.com

Raven Vanpelt Fernandina Beach S S i i g g n n l l a a w w s s Loosening our sign ordinance would be like adding gasoline to a fire. With technology rapidly making signage both mor e per vasive and invasive, strict limits are more important than ever But the Achilles heel is enfor cement. That is because our sign ordinances are complaint driven. Illegal signs can be put up to stay forever if no one takes the trouble to complain. This is absurd. This encourages violations. How many of us know what constitutes an ille gal sign to even consider lodging a for mal complaint? Or have the time or inclination? Any business told to remove its illegal signage knows only to wait until the dust settles before putting out it out again. Months or years can pass before a complaint can spark an effort to get it r emoved. Commissioner Danny Leaper deser ves huge cr edit in r ecently cleaning up the unsightly mess of illegal signs and eyesores on A1A. But it needs to be noted that this took about six months to do. And that this ugly proliferation of sign violations existed in full view of ever y motorist on A1A for sever al years prior without prosecution. I believe the r eason for this is most p eople erroneously assume that the signage they see is lawfully there, and the powers that be wouldnt let it happen otherwise. Well, not so. Next will be food trucks: their signage needs strict limits and enforcement. These are compellingr easons the county commissioners s hould not consider r elaxing the c odes. Enfor c ing them should be consistent and proactive. Ordinary citizens cannot be expected to be the ones to blow the whistle on violators, when our county Code Enfor cement appears to have no mandate to initiate action otherwise.

Someone writing about the of fensive whips in the Pirate Parade must not realize that crackers were poor whites w ho were lucky if they could afford the whip, much less own a slave. Although I am sur e some slaves were whipped by something leather in the past, so why not just outlaw leather? And our European ancestors completely decimated the Native American population, so why did we bother to tour the replicas of the Columbus ships? Hey, lets outlaw wooden ships too. Im not sur e which is the worse indicator of our society: that some one has nothing better to do that look for something to offend our diverse cultur e, that we know so lit tle of our own history or that our newspaper even printed something so er r oneous but so polarizing. But wait, thats what our media do everyday Pitiful. Tammy Robinson Fernandina Beach T T a a r r g g e e t t i i n n g g t t e e e e n n s s Y ester day after noon my 17-year old daughter got the call she had been hoping for. It was a company calling her about a summer job where she would be making $14.95/hour, full or part-time. She was over the moon, as any 17-yearold would be when pr esented with such an opportunity. She was asked if she would be inter ested and if so, could she make it to an inter view at 5 p.m. That was in 45 minutes! She was so excited. I asked her what s the name of the company and she replied Vector, as she ran towards her bedroom to change in order to make it to the inter view on time. While her excitement grew I did a quick sear ch online for V ector Their website adver tised a fun and exciting workplace for young adults. After reading all the hoopla, I went back to my favorite search engine and found more articles about Vector Marketing. This time, though, I see few dozen pages with headlines that read a little differently It seems that V ector Marketing has a r eputation for pr eying on high s chool and college students. They are looking for young adults with little or no job experience to sell their products. They get your childs information from the school, or at least that s what they told my daugh ter, which made them that much m ore believable to her. I personally w ouldn t have a pr oblem with them o f f ering our kids jobs for the sum mer, as long as they make it clear how they are going to make their money. As it tur ns out, V e ctor does pay the hourly rate which they so r ead ily advertise. They pay this rate for ever y hour you actually sit with a qualified customer in their home o r on the Internet showing/selling t heir pr o ducts. The hours of cold calling fr o m the phonebook it takes to make these appointments, ther e s no pay. For the time and money it takes getting to and r eturning from these appointments, theres no pay. For the three days training that is o ffered, theres no pay. For the attendance to their sales meetings that is mandator y theres no pay. If you are not in someones home or with them online, you arent going to get a single penny. I had to explain this all to my daughter. I had to watch as the excitement left her happy smiling face and was replaced with disappointment and disbelief. The world is cruel enough without tr ying to deceive our childr en. I went to the of fice that Vector has set up in Yulee to confirm all of this information and misinformation. It was confir med by the manager when I asked the questions that most young adults with little or no job experience would not know to ask. I made it clear that I thought they wer e misleading these kids, who deserve praise for trying to find work and spend their summer doing something constructive with their time. It appears that the company is not breaking any laws with their deception. Ethically well, in my opin ion they ar e stepping over the line. So, if your teenager gets a call about a gr eat opportunity over the summer, you might want to make sure they know which questions to ask before they get too excited. Mark Johnson Yulee S S t t . M M i i c c h h a a e e l l After r eading newspaper articles, letters to the editor, material directly from our church, attending city official meetings what is the truth? The expansion of St. Michael has been a long and painful process. In the mid-1980 s ... I can say that s tr ue having joined this parish in the mid-1980s. What about you? Have you been here through the one step forward, two steps back era? Now, here we are in the 21st centur y Is the survey being interpreted cor r ectly as to demographics? Y es, we took into account oni sland vs. off-island properties. No, 32034 responses were not allocated properly. 30 percent of parishioners will attend Mass in Yulee per surveyr esults. Even with that, we still need the e xpansion. W ithout first building a chur ch in Y u lee, we won t know if this per cent will take care of the standing room only issue in Fernandina. ... we are not gaining more people by expanding the chur ch we ar e simply giving seats to those who ar e already in the church. Allowing mor e people to attend M ass at one time is only exacerbati ng an incredibly bad problem ... T he city appr o ves the valet parking as submitted on paper Is this just a for m ality to comply with city requirements? When questioned, the city s Technical Review Committee responded by saying if the valet p arking is not being used the church could be closed for non-compliance with this appr oved valet parking plan. Should you be concerned? We only have one priest. Well have an associate pastor as of July 1. No one is trying to deny anyone a seat at our church in Fernandina Beach. My understanding of the Yulee First gr oup is they feel in their hear ts that the parishioners of St. Michael do not have the entire picture as it relates to the expansion and the new chur ch in Y ulee. So they chose public media to reach these parishioners. Do we r eally need to expand? one individual asks. Lets wait three to five years after the chur ch in Yulee is built to see if we need it. Others have privately spoken these same or similar words. However for whatever r eason, this is not made known outside of conversations with close friends. Y ou might disagr ee with the ulee First groups approach in delaying the expansion, but they have been of help in raising awareness of our new church plans for off-island. Rather than a small sign at the cor ner of SR 200 and Christian Way, we can thank them for the banner in fr ont of this of f-island loca tion which weekly displays the Mass time. And, due to their knowledge of pr operty taxes, and at their own expense, everyone can now see our St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Mission Church sign from SR 200 and, prior to that, our St. Michael sign. Some might believe the overcr owding at our Satur day Y ulee Mass at 4 p.m. is due to snowbir ds. Personally I tend to lean more on the numbers increasing because of the banner and sign. Could it be a combination? What is your truth? The expansion pr oject was scheduled to begin May 12.

Older folks get into the movie theater for a dollar less than young sprouts; they can eat out for less, espec ially if they go for the early-bird special; they can inadvertently say offensive things and be f orgiven more quickly, and my dentist tells me their teeth are less sensitive. No, he wasn t talking about dentures. The latest revelation over which old folks may revel is that theyre likely to be nicer. The Wall Street Journal reported last month that most people tend to become more agreeable, more responsible, more emotionally stable as they grow older. Researchers call it theM aturity Principle. Unfortunately, some people are immune to t he Maturity Principle. You might be thinking of the old man down the street who never speaks when you meet him on your morning walk and who complains when your cat purrs too loud. But, generally speaking, I think theres a lot of truth in the study of maturity. Here are some ways I think older people of whom I am one, thus the use of the plural personal pronoun we demonstrate were nicer: We are less likely to come back with a cutting response when someone remarks hurtf ully about us. Reason: We didnt hear what was said. W e are more polite. Example: When we break in l ine at the cafeteria, we politely say, Excuse me, please. We are not trying these days to enhance our rsums. That means we dont live as much on the edge, which means were less edgy. W e are less likely to care what other people think of us. I t turns out, of course, that no one has been thinking of us in the first place. We are more patient with others. Reason: It takes too much energy to argue. Most of us do not have children to rear, which means that we are not ultimately responsible for how young people turn out. Thats one reason grandparents often are nicer and m ore lenient to their grandchildren than they were to their children. We are less likely to become frustrated working around the house, trying, for example, t o fix leaky faucets and toilets. We are more likely to forgive people who have made stupid m istakes, because we have made our own stupid mistakes over the years. W e wish that others around us would use good manners and respect their elders. But we dont consider ourselves elders. Theyre older folks. I could go on, but you get the idea. I believe the research showing older folks are nicer, but it really boils down to this one gem oft ruth reported in the W all Street Journal : that friendly, outgoing, responsible people tend to b e happier than shy, irresponsible, unsociable people. Maybe older folks have figured it out. Well, most of us. The Maturity Principle is still avoiding that crabby old man down the street.

M ARY MAGUIRE News-Leader Nassau Countys Fire Rescue needs new ambulances and the county commission voted 5-0 at its April 28 meeting to spend almost $450,000f or them. We have two vehicles on t heir last legs, said County Manager Ted Selby. One has an engine out and the other is on the ver ge. The county is also buying two administrative vehicles, likely spor t utility vehicles, and the t otal price tag for the r escue u nits and SUVs is $524,938. All of the vehicles have more than 200,000 miles on the odometer. Thats a lot, especially for emer gency response vehic les. O f f icials needed to shift m oney into the general operat ing fund to cover the expense. They have to. There is no savings account for new vehicles. Not even for fire trucks or ambulances. In fact, Selby reminded the b oard that they eliminated a f unding plan to r eplace vehicles l ast year to help balance the Fiscal-year 2013-14 budget. So, now all vehicles are replaced on an as needed basis, limping along until they virtually stop running. The county has spent $100,000 on r epairs for two resc ue units and officials say its t ime to stop doing that. The v ehicles both need new engines and repairs are a waste of money. ere here to uphold public safety issues, guys. This is a public safety issue, said boar d Chair Barry Holloway. As m uch as we struggle to find the d ollars, this is something that w e need to do. Commissioner W alter Jr Boatright agreed. He said he has personally seen back-up units traveling around the county and that is not a good situa tion. I want to know that when I c all 9-1-1 that somebody is going t o be ther e without it being a back-up vehicle, said Boatright. Commissioner Danny Leeper, who retired as chief of the Fernandina Beach Fire Rescue depar tment, said resc ue units are expensive and he a sked if County Fir e Chief Matt G raves looked for a used vehi cle to help save money. They dont have the mileage and the roads that we do. Is that something youve explor ed? said Leeper s a tremendous cost savings. G raves said its difficult u nder pur chasing policies that r e quir e exact vehicle r eplace ment. But well look if thats the direction of the board, he said. Commissioner Steve Kelley asked Graves about the leadtime on the vehicles purchase. G raves told him 270 days.

POLITICS IN BRIEF Kites in the air (and other raptors too) A n yone who looks up at the sky around the middle of Amelia Island is almost certain to see a usual-for-us sight t hese days swallow-tailed kites! And, if you look closelya t the sign for the Flora Parke development you will find a nother surprise a pair of nesting ospreys! And, on the North 14th Street pole near the back gate to Fort Clinch the pair of ospreys there is getting ready to celebrate a hatching. Elsewhere the s ounds of hawks screaming at one another or owls hooting a t night fills our airways. Yes, folks this spring we have more birds of prey than ever flying our skies. Weve always had ospreys here, and a pair has been nesting on the 14th Street pole that Florida P ublic Utilities provided for them for the last 10 years that I ve been keeping track of. Prior to this they nested for many years, Ive been told, on the pole next door. Some years they successfully fledged two or three offspring but not every year. L ast year some of you may recall that one adult bird was found nearby with an injured wing and taken to BEAKS w here its injuries rendered it u n-releasable. Sadly the r emaining parent was unable to feed the two young osprey. One disappeared from sight early on the parent apparently only had enough fish foro ne of them. And then, even more sadly, the parent a bandoned the remaini ng chick, which finallyj umped out of the nest i nto the salt marsh below. This bird too ended up at B EAKS with permanent i njuries. But even with this bad year for osprey, the many good years at the 14th Street nest have resulted in a number of new osprey with many returning to thisa rea to make their own nests. One pair has reclaimed the o sprey nest on the 14th Street pole. Unfortunately we cannot r ecognize individuals so we dont know if the surviving parent came back to try again, or if another pair took the opportunity. It also looks like this population boom is making other o sprey less and less choosy about nesting sites. The Flora Parke ospreys are a case in p oint. For a couple of years now ospreys have set up their n est right on the billboard in front of the development. Many Flora Parke r e sidents now are happily watching Parker and Flora (named by June Jones) conduct their family rearing activities. O ther osprey nests on Amelia Island this year are off Eighth Street near Lime S treet, near Gourmet Gourmet on the south side a nd one in another undisclosed location. If you listenf or their wimpy cries and look up on high power poles and t rees you just might see these yourself. And soon, when the eggs hatch and the babies become large enough to investigate their surroundi ngs, you might even see more osprey activities around u s. Ospreys are magnificent birds, of course, but the real news around these parts this year is the proliferation of swallow-tailed kites. These medium-sized birds of preya re distinctive with their white head and body and b lack wings and tail, their slender wings and forked tail. A lthough swallow-tailed kites breed in many places in Florida one of their main strongholds up until now these areas have not included us. No one has yet found a nest in a tree, but many resid ents in the mid-part of Amelia Island, around the airport and Bailey Road, have b een seeing a handful of them soaring our skies. Generally t hese birds nest further inland and it is unknown why, this year we are seeing more of them over here. Gail Pfoh has been keeping me updated about the birds of prey in our area and h as been maintaining a F acebook site, Ospreys of Amelia Island, which anyone is welcome to enjoy and contribute to. For those of you not involved in Facebook, ther e is also an email list of Polewatchers that was starteda number of years ago and p eople still post sightings a bout the 14th Street osprey pair. If you want to join the l ist, just send me an email about it and I will make sure you get included. June Jones has been managing this list for us and would be happy to add you to the list (thanks June!). A nd if following them on c omputer postings is not your t hing, have no fear. If you just get outside and listen for h awk cries and owl hoots and look up into the sky when a large bird flies over, you most likely will see firsthand another wonder of our natural world her e on Amelia Island. Pat Foster-Turley is a zoolog ist on Amelia Island. She welc omes your natur e questions a nd observations. email@example.com GAIL PFOH/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER Swallow-tailed kites are paying Amelia Island a visit this year. WILD WAYS Pat Foster-Turley

Manchester was arrested in June 2013 after confessing that he impregnated a 15-year-old s even years earlier, according to the Nassau County Sheriff Office. The State Attorneys Office had launched an investigation into Manchester after the sheriffs command staff received a tip about him, Undersheriff George Lueders said at the time. The matter was passed t o another agency to ens ure an independent invest igation, he said. According to the arrest report, investigators got a search warrant for M anchesters DNA on June 4, 2013, and served him with it t hree days later at the Nassau County Sheriffs Office. D uring an interview, Manchester confessed to having a sexual relationship with the victim when she was 15 years old, the report said. M anchester told investigators he fathered two children with t he girl, according to the report, the first when she was 15 and t he second when she was 17. Manchester, who started with the sheriffs office in a part-time reserve role before advancing to corrections, prev iously served as a school resource officer at Callahan M iddle School from August 1995 to February 1999, accordi ng to sheriffs records. After joining patrol for seven years, Manchester requested a transfer to school resource duties at Yulee High, an assignm ent approved by then sheriff Tommy Seagraves, Lueders s aid. Manchester was suspended w ithout pay following his arrest and subsequently fired. Manchester was additionally sentenced Thursday to 10 years of sex offender probation d uring which he must attend psychosexual counseling. He i s also designated a sexual offender and was ordered to p ay $1,010 in fees.

They were transported to St. Marys, Ga. for Georgia Department of Natural Resource authorities to investigate. There were n o injuries. OVERTURNED BOAT Drivers, share the road with motorcycle riders The Nassau County Sheriff O ffice would like to remind motorists and motorcyclists a like during Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month to share the road in order to help prevent motorcycle crashes, deaths and injuries on our roads.M otorcyclists will be out in f orce as the weather gets warme r, which is why May is the perf ect time for Motorcycle Safety A w ar e ness Month. All road users need to share the responsibility of keeping ther oadways safe, said Sherif f Bill Leeper. By following road signs, obeying speed limits, and always staying focused on the road, deaths and injuries could b e prevented. Safety tips for drivers: Always allow a motorcyclist the full lane width; never try to share a lane. Be on the lookout for motorcyclists. Check for motorcycles by l ooking in your mirrors and b lind spots before entering or l eaving a lane of traffic and at i ntersections. Do not tailgate. Allow more following distance when following a motor cycle, so the motorcyclist has enough time to maneuver or stop in an emer gency. Dont drive distracted. Drive sober. Tips for motorcyclists: Be alert drowsy driving can impair your ability to react. Drive sober. Inspect your motorcycle before each ride. Know the local traffic laws a nd rules of the road and obey t hem. Make sure you can be s een; wear bright clothing to increase visibility. Plan your route in advance and coor dinate it with the other riders when riding in a gr oup. Wear appropriate gear. Manchester

G G u u n n s s f f i i r r e e d d A Jacksonville couple fired handguns during a scuffle May 3 in Callahan involving an exspouse while the mans young s on was present, according to Nassau County Sheriffs Office reports. The report states Gerald Storch Jr., 39, and his wife, Nichole Lacretia Gordon Storch, 28, went to Gerald Storchs ex-wifes house in C allahan on May 3 to purchase a car for $500 from the ex-wifes boyfriend. The son, who was with his father and stepmother during the incident, told police that his mother (his fathers ex-wife l ives with her boyfriend at the residence in Callahan. A ccording to the juvenile, his mother told Gerald Storch when he arrived that he would need to pay for the vehicle before getting the title or keys. At that point Nichole Storch and the ex-wife began to argue, and started pulling and shoving on each other, according to a report. During the argument, Nichole Storch reportedly yelled to Gerald Storch, Come get this bitch, because I dont want to shoot her. The boy stated his father was standing outside his vehicle and chambered a round in his h andgun. At that point, the exwife starting pulling on Gerald Storch, and as he was trying to shield himself with one arm, the gun went off, according to the juvenile. The ex-wife stated in a police interview that, during the scuff le, Gerald Storch chambered a round in his gun and pointed it at her head and then fired a shot at her foot. She also told police that as she was walking away to call 911, Nichole Storch took her gun out, pointed the l aser at her and stated Ill kill you, bitch. The ex-wife told p olice she was in fear for her life during these incidents. After the argument, the couple and the child got into the vehicle and Nichole Storch reportedly fired three rounds as they drove off. The Storchs vehicle, a gray Mazda pulling a trailer, was a pprehended soon after by police at the corner of Ratliff and Jarrett roads in Callahan. The couple was ordered out and to the ground and then detained in separate vehicles, a report stated. The son was interviewed by police. After being advised of his r ights, Gerald Storch stated his ex-wife was attempting to hit him in the head with a beer bottle after the argument began between her and Nichole Storch. He told police he subsequently fired a warning shot at the feet of his ex-wife, and t hen left. Nichole Storch told police that the ex-wife grabbed her by the face, which caused small scratches on the right side of her face, according to a report. She also admitted to firing her h andgun while driving away and allegedly stated, I know t hat was not a good idea. A search of the Mazda revealed a Ruger handgun with a spent casing in the glove box and a Ruger handgun in the center console. The handgun belonging to Nichole Storch had a laser attached, according to a report. T he son was released to his mothers custody and the state Child Abuse Hotline was alerted by police. Gerald Storch Jr., of Jacksonville, was arrested and charged with assault with intent to commit a felony. Nichole Lacretia Gordon Storch, same a ddress, was arrested and charged with firing a weapon or discharging a firearm from a vehicle. A A p p p p l l i i a a n n c c e e t t h h e e f f t t A Callahan resident reported t o police that all her major appliances were stolen from her house some time in the past three weeks while she was away, according to a Nassau County Sheriffs Office report. The resident told deputies s he had received a phone call while away from the house, i nforming her the water pump was running. On arrival at the residence, she saw that a deadbolt was not locked and that several items had been stolen. Police found that a thief had somehow gained entry to the house and removed the refrigerator and stove from the k itchen.

The report, Overcriminalization In F lorida, calls for the state to review options to reduce the prison population through downgrading offenses and implementing alternatives to incarceration for nonviolent, level one and two offenders. Florida s criminal justice s ystem can do more to improve p ublic safety beyond locking u p all offenders, said Dominic M. Calabro, president and CEO of Florida T a xWatch, an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit public policy research institute and gover nment watchdog. Nearly half of Florida s new p rison admissions are nonviol ent offenders charged with t hird-degree felonies, the lowest offense on the felony severity chart. Florida would be safer by rehabilitating these offenders without having them spend time in costly prisons, or crime colleges, wher e they are detained with dangerous, violent criminals. The report calls for a review of third-degree felony offenses to determine if Florida is overcriminalizing certain low-level o ffenses. The report suggests t hat some third-degree felonies c ould be downgraded to misdemeanors, which still result in significant punishments for offenders while reducing taxpayer burden. The punishment should fit the crime and the cost, said Dan McCar thy dir ector of the T axWatch Center for Smart J ustice. Florida could save mill ions of dollars and improve public safety by reducing our nonviolent prison population through alternative adjudication. Florida s prison population has incr eased by mor e than 400 p ercent in the last 35 years, t hough the state population has g rown by slightly more than 100 percent. Currently the state has 1.5 million felons, but the states crime rate is at its lowest point in more than 40 years. Read the full analysis at www .FloridaTaxWatch.org.

HEATHER A. PERRY News-Leader Teens have enough pressures to deal with in their young lives without the added stress of a parent, family member or close friend with a drinki ng problem. Alateen was created to help teens in this situation learn how to deal with the effects of alcohol in their lives and families. Part of the Al-Anon Family Groups, Alateen offers teens a safe place to share, gain selfesteem and hope, and realize t heyre not alone in their struggle. Teens work through their problems in a structured way, finding courage and comfort among their peers and group facilitators. The group has an exceptionally beneficial impact on the t heir lives, report teens who attend. One 14-year-old girl who has been going to meetings for about six months said, The r eason why I am in Alateen is b ecause my mother and aunt recommended Alateen to me and I gave it a chance. I have an anger problem. I can honestly say I felt lonely and angry that I had no one to turn to. But being in Alateen, I feel like a new person. I absolutely fell in love with Alateen. Another teen, 17, said, Before Alateen, all I could remember about home was the f ighting. This happened so often that I thought it was normal in every family. The fighting made me emotionally numb because I was so focused on e veryone else. When I can to A lateen, I learned to feel my feelings and express them. It i s also OK to have my opinion and not be afraid to what people w ill say about me. Ive grown a lot since coming to Alateen. I a m glad I found the Alateen program. Otherwise, I would still be in the middle of all the fighting. Facilitators and sponsors s ee a marked improvement in the attitudes of the teens they s upport. This is my second year b eing a sponsor for our Alateen group. I became a sponsor because I was told getting busy doing service in Alanon/Alateen would help me g row and experience new avenues to happiness. In every m eeting Ive attended, I can say this has been true, said one s ponsor. At the meetings, a teen picks a topic and all the teens share their experience or thoughts about it. Something about the fact that others listen to the sharing without interrupting or judging or trying to fix each other helps us all find our paths to peace and even happin ess. T rained adult facilitators g uide the teens through the structured 12-step support group. There are no requirements, other than having a relative or friend who drinks too much.

PERRY News-Leader L ocal author Jim Weinsier founded Nassau Youth WritersP rogram after friends and acquaintances around town t hat knew he had written childrens books remarked they have a talented child and its a shame there arent any writers groups around town for t hem. When I got to about the f ifth person, I thought we could start something. T he group offers young writers in grades 7-12 an opportunity to sharpen their skills and develop their talents through instructional gatheri ngs held at 4:45 p.m. the first and third Tuesdays of eachm onth at the Peck Center Library. I partnered with a petanque club friend and former history teacher, Ms. Arlyse McDowell, and we went to all the county high schools and middle schools promoting the opportunity, said Weinsier. Along the way, Colleen Hodge, a librarian and teacher at St. Michael Academy, joined t hem. Weinsier has high praise f or Hodge and McDowell. When we switched meeti ng from Books Plus to the Peck Center, Arlyse knew a lot about the Peck Center so she gave the kids a little history lesson and the we did a writinge xercise. And Colleen adds a bridge between the ages b ecause she s 30ish so we h ave a lot of good elements in p lace for the kids. Critique sessions during meetings give members the opportunity to get feedback on their work. Ther e ar e so many talent ed kids out ther e that just need a little guidance. Our pr ogram a f for ds the oppor tunity to e xpress themselves, and share their thoughts and ideas with other kids with the same pas sion writing. We also talk about resources for getting their work published, writing contests and so on, said Weinsier. Truthfully, these kids are a ll great writers. Its impress ive. And they love getting together. They eat everything up. Theyre like sponges. The young writers pooled their talents to produce a childrens book, Finley Flips for Books, in support of the Nass au County Library System a nd Family Suppor t Services l ibrary program. They have a backpack program where they give backpacks to any pre-kindergarten or kindergarten child who takes out a librar y car d. The backpacks ar e stuf fed with p encils and other little things a nd this book is in ther e, too. I ts a coloring book so it gives the kids an activity They wr o te an ar t icle for the News-Leader and were invited to submit articles for other publications as well. Students enjoy special inter active presentations by authors, scr eenplay writers, e ditors, publishers and other professionals in the field. V i c DiGenti, group leader of the Florida Writers Assoc iation Northeast Florida G roup, was one of the first to s peak to the students. Authors Bill Reynolds, Chuck Barrett, Maggie DeVries and Teri Grimm have also addressed the group. Becoming members of the Northeast Florida Writers A ssociation has also given the t eens an invaluable r esource t o network with other writers. Theyre thrilled about it, said Weinsier. Lacey Mickler is very enthusiastic in her praise for the gr oup. This gr oup has gr own a l ot since the first meeting, and i t has become a gr eat way for m e to share my work with other students, bat around ideas and get my name out there in the writing world.

"This year he took a leadership role and became a strong presence in our basketball program," Warrior Head Coach LaTroy Strong said. LaTroy became captain and learned to act as a role model. "It was hard, but at the same time I learned to be a leader as the season went on," he said. "Coming from last year's team and the year before, I hadn't really seen how difficult it is to be a leader." The Warriors were back-to-back district champions in 2012 and 2013, with former teammates Keith George and D.J. Roberts leading the team those years. Both were allcounty team most valuable players and LaTroy's leadership role this year brought him to the same title. He leads the all-county team as its MVP. "It's been at West Nassau the last two years and I wasn't about to let it go anywhere else," LaTroy said. In the offseason he played travel ball for the Jacksonville Knicks for two seasons, earning a state title. At West Nassau this season, he earned an average of 23.5 points, 7.5 re bounds and 3.4 steals per game. He racked up double-figure points in every game except against Hilliard. During that game, the Flashes doubled the defense on LaTroy and he scored his lowest points ever 2. "Hilliard, that had to be the most defense I had seen my whole high school career," LaTroy said. "I could tell they did their homework that game and were really prepared. I have to respect that." In the past few seasons, the Warrior student section has grown at games. "We really owe it to Hailey Wright, Josh Y oung and the baseball team," LaTroy said. "They really came out and supported us." The Warriors finished the season 14-12. "We kind of struggled a little bit," Strong said. The team lost several players prior to the start of the 2013-14 season. In addition to those who graduated, three players transferred to University Christian and a fourth dropped out of school. The Warriors gained fellow all-county team member Camerin Hunter through a transfer and still had Jeff McGee, who is also on the all-county team. The difference between LaTroy and his teammates was he always had his father making the calls during games. The father-son duo found positives and negatives along the way. "Coaching your son is an emotional roller coaster," the elder Strong said. "You get an opportunity to see your child through major successes ... but at the same time you have your father-son disagreements and the competitive nature of the coach and player." Though most parents were in the stands, like LaTroy's mom, Erica Williams, he always had his father next to the court, focused on the game. "At times it was difficult very difficult," he said. "You have to balance it out ... It's already a chip on your shoulder because the coach is your father, so you have to play hard to be the best." LaTroy has made several college visits and is weighing his options on where he will play basketball next. The front-runners are Eckerd College in St. Petersburg and Concordia University in Alabama.BLUE WATER SHOOTOUT TERRY LACOSS/SPECIALBilly McFadden, Adam Pepper, Tony Peeples, Blake Cantrell and Nick Cantrell, from left, with a big catch of Amelia Island blue water gamefish caught while fishing aboard the Play-N-Hooky.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Fi shing Machine wins blue water tourneyEleven blue water fishing teams departed Amelia Island at 4 a.m. Saturday, setting a course for Northeast Florida's Continental Shelf, where water depths drop sharply from 180 feet to over a 1,000 feet in less than a mile. The month of May typically produces prime blue water fishing action for a variety of pelagic gamefish, including dolphin, black fin tuna, wahoo and the occasional sailfish or blue marlin. Area blue water fishermen each year organize the annual Amelia Island Blue W ater T ournament that offers high competition between local saltwater fishing teams. Capt. Allen Mills, John Adams and Marvin Lieninger organize the popular event, which is staged at the Fernandina Harbor Marina. "It was pretty rough with seas, running from 3-5 feet," Bear Croft said. "We were getting pretty wet due to the whitecaps and 15to 18-knot southeast winds and, to top it off, our GPS stopped working when were some 30 miles offshore. We had no choice but to start fishing, which at the time we felt we were somewhere southeast of Georgia's R-4 Navy tower." Global Positioning Satellites give mariners accurate positioning of their fishing boat and, more importantly, navigates their fishing party to and from prime fishing destinations. "We actually ended up having a pretty good day of blue water trolling," Croft said. "We are very fortunate to have placed second in the event while weighing in the second-place tuna, secondplace wahoo and a pair of nice dolphin. "While navigating back to Amelia Island without electronics to guide us, we ended up a little north of the St. Marys inlet; then made it safely back to the Fernandina Harbor Marina." Also fishing aboard the Bear Caught were Steve Barnhard, Louis Pucci and Mike Clough. Seasoned blue water angler Dwight Griffis captained Team Fishing Machine to yet to another first-place finish while weighing in a first-place blackfin tuna, weighing 13.28 pounds, and a second-place blackfin tuna weighing 12.74 pounds. Fishing Machine's total points were 130. "It was one of the roughest blue water tournaments that we have fished in," Griffis said. "However, the fishing was excellent even with the r ough seas while trolling a combination of cedar plugs, plastics and ballyhoo." T eam Ella Cate finished in third place with a total of 110 points, which actually tied team Bear Caught, but they weighed in after Bear Caught. T ournament rules state that, in case of a tie, the first boat that weighs in is the winner. T eam Ella Cate was captained by John Hopkins with fishing team members Scott Thompson, Michael Gowen, Danny Mortan, Taylor Hopkins and Brandon Alison. Their blue water catch included a first-place wahoo, weighing 25.20 pounds, and a second-place dolphin, weighing 36.14 pounds, for a total of 110 points. Blake Cantrell fished with father Nick Cantrell aboard the Play-N-Hooky, taking top youth angler honors with a 31.78-pound dolphin. Also fishing aboard the Play-NHooky were Tony Peeples, Bill McFadden and Adam Pepper. It was simply a team effort for first place lady angler honors with Johanna Mickler, Darla McCulough and Emily Nanken weighing in a massive 46.14-pound dolphin. Capt. Spencer Ross captained the Pirate Punch with team members Mike Yonn and David Hagins also aboard when the massive dolphin was landed. "It was really a lady team effort," Ross said. "The big dolphin hit a Sea Witch and ballyhoo combination trolled way back from an outrigger. It took the ladies 40 minutes to land the big bull dolphin that made numerous jumps and power runs." "We stayed soaking wet the entire day," Capt. Benny Hendrix said. "We ran out some 30 miles, then trolled the rest of the way to the 30fathom curve with seas running from 4-6 feet." Seasoned local charter boat Hendrix fished aboard Michael Peeples' sport fishing boat, the Ashley Dawn, with James Razer, Ashley Peeples and Jasmine Tulloh. A large crowd gathered at the Fernandina Harbor Marina Saturday afternoon to enjoy the weigh-in and the excitement that blue water fishing offers. Many thanks to Mills, Adams and Lieninger for hosting the tournament.

Chief Jim Hurley said Smith s dedication and commitment to the police department and the community made her worthy of this honor. Hurley also gave his annual Fer nandina Beach Police Department update. A highlight was the launch of the FBPD s new Facebook page another way of reaching out to the community according to the chief. He spoke about several issues of concer n, includ ing the increase in synthetic drugs available to teenagers, a rise in the number of homeless in the ar ea and pr oblems with illegal sales of prescription drugs. However, he also noted that in 2013 the city enjoyed the lowest crime rate ever recorded even though he continues his goal to reduce the budget and rely on grants and other resources to fund the department. CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK r P AGE 4B W EDNESDAY M AY 14, 2014 N EWS -L EADER / F ERNANDINA B EACH FL A good hair day makes all the difference Some of us are never happy with our hair. Too long. Too short. To straight. Too curly. Too many bad hair days. So we all d ream of good hair days somehow hitting the perfect balance the right color, the right amount, the right curliness or straightness, right length, etc. When moving to a new place it is more important to find the right beauty shop than a plumber or electrician. When I first moved to Amelia Island I shamelessly stopped people on the street asking who had cut their h air. I found Nancy and have been hers for nearly 20 years! I love my beauty shop, or should I say salon. No matter how dreary the weather or dark my mood the bright light, clean smells and happy chatter bring me to a happier state. You may see a gentleman or two, but make no mistake, chicks rule. A s I walk through the salon, soft circles of chatter bubble up around the room. Arms wave and magazines are traded as everyone catches up on the latest gossip from Hollywood. Want to know what is really happening in the community? Important things like new stores or restaurants, who is getting a divorce, who is sick or has just died? J ust get your hair done. As conversations develop around the shop, often a question will come up from one station and a voice from another station chimes in. The chatter is not just gossip, there is a lot of love going around too conversations always include a genuine sharing of concerns about friends, family and neighb ors who have suffered some tragedy or illness. Upon arrival I stop to grab favorite magazines that I love to read, but do not subscribe to hurrying through so I finish before my turn comes. When called I settle into Nancys chair, looking into the mirror and at my hair trying to describe my dreams and w ishes. Occasionally I will force a picture of a desired haircut into her hands. Then reality sets in. Nancy then tells me what I really need and what she is going to do. In my case, the key is a great haircut and she has the magic touch. The process begins usually a trip to the sink and the wonderfully relaxing s hampoo gentle hands massage shampoo into the hair and then cool water washes the soap down the drain and then back to the chair. Many artful clips later, a blow dry and I look back at a much happier woman. We have managed to catch up as she does her magic and before I know it I have a spiffy new haircut and feel reenergized and ready to face the w orld.

Spay and neuter the responsibles olution. CATS ANGELS Marky Bark (formerly known as Marky Mark) is black and white and lovable all over! Hes a laid-back bulldog mix, about 2 years old, with a wonderful personality. And heres great news this month NHS has reduced the adoption rate for black or black-and-white dogs and cats by 50 per cent! Marky has a gorgeous white coat with black markings that range from big spots to little freckles, and soulful brown eyes. Hes accustomed to living with people who loved him, but they couldn t keep him because of landlord issues, not because of anything Marky did wrong. Hes fully grown at about 41 pounds, so hes a fine size for a house dog. Hes heartworm-negative and already neutered. He loves affection and he likes to keep a clean kennel and do his business outside, so we think he s housetrained. He will chase toys and return them to you, and very gently picks them up almost as if he doesnt want to hurt them. Marky needs a forever home where he can feel loved. Mrs. Snoops is an amazing beauty, and very affectionate too! Shes a long-haired tortoiseshell whos accustomed to living with people, but unfortunately they couldnt keep her any mor e. Her luxu rious coat is super-soft for petting, and while she might look like a diva, she actually has a sweet personality She s spayed and declawed on her front paws. We are having some dental work done on her, and it would be wonderful if you could take her home and let her rest up in a nice, quiet home instead of a shel ter with lots of other cats ar ound. W e think she probably got the name Snoops from being inquisitive as a kitten, but now that shes about 5 or 6 years old, shes much happier with a quiet lifestyle and giving you lots of affection. She pur rs when you pet her and wants all the love you can give! Y ou can see pictures and videos of our adoptable dogs and cats at our website, NassauHumaneSociety.com. Were having a special adoption promotion this month, focused on helping black or black-and-white ani mals find forever homes! Nearly 200 par tners with Best Friends Animal Society are participating in this Back in Black event. At the Nassau Humane Society, were offering 50 percent off adoption prices for black or black-andwhite cats and dogs during May.

On Friday he will speak to students of Duval County SUBMITTED PHOTOS For the News-Leader Erik Weihenmayer, the most prominent blind adventurer in the world, is coming to The RitzCarlton, Amelia Island on Thursday as the keynote speake r at a major corporate event. On Friday, he will speak to thes tudents of Duval County public schools about dreaming big and then working through the hardships they will encounter enroute to achieving those d reams. Weihenmayer, from Golden, C olo., is well known locally, having dedicated the grounds of t he Yulee site of the Boys & Girls Club many years ago. He previously presented his message at Fernandina High and many local private schools and has shown two of his films to local audiences at area premieres. One film, BlindSight, played at the Carmike Theater i n Fernandina. Erik is the son of Ed W eihenmayer of Amelia Island Plantation. Erik Weihenmayer is the o nly blind person to climb Mt. Everest and the Seven Summits, the highest peak on each of the seven continents. For this feat, he was a Time magazine cover story. He has also climbed the 3,200-foot overh anging rock face of El Capitan a t Y osemite, and the 3,000-foot i ce face of Losar in Nepal. He has completed the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race at eleva tions above 10,000 feet, as well as the Primal Quest, billed as t he toughest adventure race in the world 460 miles, 60,000 f eet of elevation gain, no timeouts. He has also starred in a TV adventure series, ABCs Expedition Impossible, a race across the mountains, rivers and deserts of Morocco. In September, Weihenmayer will solo kayak the Grand Canyon, with a fearsome reputation as o ne of the most daunting whitewater venues in the world, 277 miles over 21 days. The Jacksonville schools program is sponsored by Sheriff John Rutherford of Duval County and Glenn Ellison of the Parent Help Center, who believe that students who have establ ished life dreams will squeeze the most value from their academic experience. Unfortunately, those without dreams risk an aimless walk through secondary school, impacting on their life prospects and increasing the chances of trouble in their teenage years. T he Parent Help Center, encompassing EmpoweredP arents and Camp Conseq uence, has worked with area t eenagers and their parents for 1 4 years, saving thousands of y oung people fr o m unfulfilled l ives and their families from disruption and pain. A fundraiser for the Parent Help Center will be held at Fire Fighters Hall in Jacksonville on F riday evening.
