Obviously the implementation of a successful hurricane evacuation in the Nor theast Florida r egion will be complex and challenging, said the r eport.

They also ran models of more than 1 4,000 storm possibilities. We used a super computer, said r egional disaster planner Beth Payne of the Northeast Florida Regional Council (NEFRC The counties in the region include Nassau, Duval, Baker, Clay, Flagler, St. Johns and Putnam. It was a team effort, said Payne. O f all of the counties participating i n the evacuation plan, it is Nassau C ounty with the longest evacuation times.

The Florida Depar tment of T ransportation (FDOT c lose a quar ter -mile section of the r oad b etween the U.S. post of f ice in Y ulee and US 17, probably on July 12-14. Accor ding to FDOT, the closure is scheduled to star t at dawn on Satur day, July 12 and continue through sunset on Monday July 14. FDOT says the closure involves widening the CSX r ailroad tracks an additional 10 feet, b ringing the crossing, including sidew alks, to 120 feet. Plans call for a new railroad signal and four gates, including two on each side of the north and southbound lanes, said Donna Whitney who is FDOTs coordinator for railroads. But we wont be ready for the gates until the r oadwork is complete, said Whitney in a phone interview last week. FDOT begins a major expansion project of A1A this fall. Plans call for increasing the number of travel lanest o six from four. The project is scheduled to happen over three phases and continue for several years. How long the pr oject lasts will depend on funding, say officials. The first phase of the pr oject is scheduled to begin in September or October and is centered on A1A at US 17. W hitney said FDOT is paying for the new railr o ad crossing and the cost is budgeted at $375,000. While the three-day lane closure is less than a month away, Whitney said FDOT was not ready to share infor mation about the closure with the public because the state is still trying to schedule a welder to handle metal work. Local roadway engineers told the News-Leader about the upcoming closure. They said that FDOT recently provided the date to them by email. A1A detour set at Yulee tracks ANGELA DAUGHTRY News-Leader Accor ding to City Clerk Car oline Best, public records requests will be char ged a fee if city staff takes more than one hour to fulfill the request. Best said at a June 17 city commission meeting that a policy regarding extensive use of public records had been in effect since 2012, but was not being fully enforced by city staff. The city s public r ecor ds policy states that any public records request that takes mor e than an hour to fulfill will be charged at an hourly rate equal to the lowest-paid staff member in the department from which the information is being gathered even if that staff member is not involved in gathering the requested information. Best said the new enfor cement of the policy was initiated partly by a request by Vice Mayor Sarah Pelican, who noticed in a public records request log that fees were not being charged by city staff. Pelican also complained at a previous meeting that there appeared to be a lot of requests from one individual, and she wanted to make sur e city staf f was billing properly for their time. Basically it s just a r eminder to city staf f, Best said in a phone inter view. It seemed like when the policy was first adopted, it was adhered to, but it started falling to the wayside. Best noted that while some municipalities may charge fees for requests taking mor e than 15 minutes, she felt that amount of time would be cumbersome for city staf f, and flies in the face of what gover nment in the Sunshine is all about. A city resolution regarding public records requests was adopted in 2012, and Florida State Statute 119 also addresses public records. The city s policy states, in par t, that all public records requests should be Ci ty to charge for s om e publi c r ecords PHOTOS BY ALAN DONALDSON/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER Kathy Gammons of the citys Parks and Recreation Department and Nicholas Clark of the Roberts Boys & Girls Club in Fer nandina Beach teach children to swim at the Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center, top.

JACKSONVILLE With m igraines afflicting more than 30 million people in the U.S., two local neurologists and Baptist Health are raising awareness and providing treatment solutions to reduce the pain. N ational Migraine Awareness Month in June a lso heightens education about migraines, which are three times more common in women than men. Migraine is a brain disease, said Erin G. Doty, MD, a neurologist, who is board-certified in neurology a nd headache medicine and provides inpatient coverage at Baptist Medical Center Beaches. Migraines are real and are not due to stress or working on a computer. Those things can make migraines worse, b ut you get migraines because you have a migraine disorder, not because you have stress. Migraines can be trigg ered by numerous internal a nd external environmental factors, such as change in weather, menstrual cycle, insufficient sleep or poor eating. D oty added that people w ho have aller gies and asthm a have a higher incidence o f migraines. S yed A. Asad, MD, chief of Neurology for Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville, also emphasizes that every headache is not a migraine. Some characteristics of a m igraine include: a visual a ura or flashing light; nau s ea; vomiting; light or sound s ensitivity. The pain is usually moderate to severe in intensity and lasts for four to 72 hours if untreated. Excessive use of over-thecounter medications can make the pr oblem worse, e specially headache medic ines that often contain a lot o f caf f eine, which can con tribute to patients developing chronic migraines. A lot of people overmedicate themselves with overt he-counter medication, Asad said. If you o verdo it, you can cause a gastric ulcer and it can affect your kidney function. People with frequent headaches s hould see their primary physicians. If the primary is n ot able to help, they should see a neurological specialist, Asad said. New and more effective prescription medications for headache prevention and to treat headaches are available and can give you back control of your life, Doty added. The use of Botox has been approved since 2010 for migraines. To qualify, Asad said insurance companies r equire a person to have 15 m igraine days a month with e ach lasting four hours or more. Another requirement is that they should have tried two or three prophylactic prescription medications that did not work or caused side effects. P eople can also try to a void certain triggers such as stress, sleep deprivation or eating food that is rich in tyramines, nitrates and nitrites such as chocolate, cheese or alcohol. Ar tificial sweeteners can also be a trigg er. Reducing stress is i mportant and regular exercise can also help to decr e ase headache fr e quency and intensity, Asad said.

these years. There remains serious challenges in this region if we are to a void loss of life and property and human suffering, said the r eport. The document cited storms such as Hurricane Katrina for the devastation it caused in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas in 2005. Everyone is looking to avoid a repeat. A lot of work is being done a t the federal, state and local levels, said Payne. The meeting was held last Friday morning at the Northeast Florida Regional Council offices in Jacksonville with the Florida Division of E mergency Management. Local emergency managem ent directors from each of the seven counties also participated in the program, including Nassaus Emergency Management Director William Estep. Officials report that evacuation travel times will depend on how many local people need to get out of town and how far they h ave to travel. They dont expect everyone to go. In fact, emergency officials say they asked social scientists to look at the reports wording a nd colors to make sure the m essage is being conveyed with g reatest impact. One recommendation they received: When it comes to water levels, say greater than, r ather than less than. A nd they told officials to use b righter reds, greens and yell ows to convey stop, go and yield. Wording is important, said Payne. Officials might have spoken with graphic artists. The report uses a lot of c harts and graphs and it is easy t o overlook impor t ant details.

The charts and graphs and colorful maps of flood zones use shor thand agency names such a s LIDAR, SLOSH and NOAA. T he report makes a big deal about stor m surge, calling it the most deadly hazard for this area. Local bays and rivers, water depth, bridges, roads and other p hysical features such as coastl ine heights, account for this, s aid the report. Estep said evacuations would be called for during day time hours and that people will be able to track them online. As long as there is power h e said. B ut if an emergency happ ens at night, there will be aler t s to wake us up? Right? Yes, said Estep. But we have days and days and days to prepare for a hurricane. What he wants people to do n ow is to make individual prepar ations. It is important that the people of Nassau County have a plan wher e they are going to go and listen to the messages and take impor tant documen tation with you, said Estep.

It concludes that mobile home residents are far more vuln erable than people living in site built structures. Thats no surprise.T he report says that in 2015, the vulnerable population in Nassau County totals 35,202 people. A nd, the study says that it will take 17 to 21.5 hours to take people to a shelter or out of the county. And this despite the fact that Nassau County has fewer people to evacuate than Duval and St. Johns counties to the south. People typically evacuate to the north, said Nassaus Emergency Management Director William Estep. Some of thep eople in Duval County will be coming to our shelters. Thats going to be a burden. We dont have enough for our p opulation, according to Estep. Some people are going to be on the road and stranded and well be hosting them, said Estep. We took that into consideration as well. Estep says that Duval and St. Johns counties both have a m uch greater shelter deficit than Nassau County. Duval County would need to evacuate 608,903 people.S t. Johns County would need to evacuate 171,515 people. Where are people going? I n Nassau County, people with special needs will be taken to Hilliard Middle Senior High School. Estep says he is talking to the school board about another option. And he is looking for money. The county is applying for grants up to $300,000 that Estep says would pay for 2,162 shelter spaces. One of the possibilities is the new school planned for Yulee. B ut its not built yet. e are making plans, and as the population grows that is i mportant, said Estep. At present, the health department is accepting names for people who want to be on a local list of those who will need space at the shelter. They also will sign you up for a ride to the shelter, if you need one. But that job is going to be a state responsibility later this year, said Estep. The legislature just made the change to take it from counties and give it to the state, he said. EVACUATION Continued from 1A Prepare for storm season TALLAHASSEE Hurric ane Season began June 1 and lasts until Nov. 30. The Florida Department of Health encourages Floridians and visitors to keep their health concerns in mind as they prepare to have a healthy and safe seas on. Now is the time to prepare y our family for hurricane season, said State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong. Prior to a disaster, create an emergency plan for your family and pets, identify locations o f special needs shelters and prepare an emergency supply k it with first aid, healthy meals and water Before a disaster happens, build an emergency supply kit that includes healthy, nonperishable foods and supplies that meet your familys and pets h ealth and medical needs. Talk with your health care provider a nd pharmacist about receiving emergency medication s upplies. Under a federally declared emergency, you can get an extra 30-day supply with no price increase, even for recently filled prescriptions. Other items to include in your emergency supply kit a re: Water at least one gallon p er person, per day for a minimum of three days. Healthy foods like canned vegetables, fruits and nuts. Store at least a three-day supply of foods that require no refrigeration, preparation, o r cooking, and little or no water. P rescription medications and required equipment/supplies like syringes, coolants, alcohol wipes, etc. First-aid kit. Glasses, hearing aids and medical devices with extra batt eries. If you or someone in your f amily requires daily medical assistance like routine nursi ng care, help with medication, oxygen therapy, or electricity for life-supporting medical equipment, be sure to pre-register for a special needs shelter. Contact your local emerg ency management office to learn more about special n eeds shelters and to pre-register-www.floridadisaster. org/disability/snshelterlist.ht ml.

Why not spread the news? e havent got this nailed down 100 percent, but those are the dates were planning for now, and it should happen, said Whitney. Local traffic will be diverted about 10 miles out of their way. D rivers traveling north on I -95 who want to access Yulee e ast of US 17 and points beyond, including Amelia Island and Fer n andina Beach, will be diverted north to Exit 380. Fr om there, drivers can head south on US 17 and thenh ead eastbound at the A1A i ntersection just east of the roadwork. Pages Dairy Road will be another eastbound travel option. Drivers seeking to travel south on I-95 from Yulee will be diverted to southbound US 1 7. W hitney said local drivers m ay also access Harts Road off US 17 South. But were not promoting that, because drivers who know about Harts Road and live in the area already know they can do that, said Whitney. F DOT said there would be a ccess to the Y ulee post of fice a s well as local shops, includ ing the gas station, convenience stor e and antique shops on the southwest side of the A1A and US 17 intersection during the reconstruction proje ct.

GAINESVILLE The F lorida Department of Health has awarded $1.6 million to theU niversity of Florida to help establish a statewide network t hat will quickly bring the benefits of research in labs and other clinical settings to more than 9 million patients in all of Floridas 67 counties. T he network will initially create tobacco cessation pro-g rams in doctors offices around the state in a coordin ated effort to prevent cancers and other cardiovascular diseases related to tobacco use. The tobacco cessation programs are part of a statewide network called OneFlorida that links three Florida univ ersities to translate research findings into practice. Led by Betsy Shenkman, Ph.D., and D avid R. Nelson, M.D., of UFs C linical and Translational S cience Institute, the network builds on statewide research i nfrastructure developed by UF and Florida State University and is expanding to include the University of Miami, along with the univer-s ities affiliated health practices. In total, the network will e ncompass 22 hospitals, 416 clinic settings and 3,250 physic ian providers, which covers 39 percent of Floridas patient population. e ar e excited about our partnerships throughout Florida, said Shenkman, chair of the Depar tment of Health O utcomes and Policy at the U niversity of Florida and the p rojects principal investigator. This is the first step in a larger effort to work with doctors and patients to adapt r esear c h findings into local community settings to improve the health of Floridians. T he tobacco cessation pr oj e ct, funded by the Department o f Healths James and Esther King Biomedical Research Program, will help combat the 28,600 deaths annually fr om cigarette use in Florida, as well as reduce the estimated $19.6 billion in health care costs and p roductivity loss due to tobacco-related diseases in the statee ach year. In particular, the grant will f und the implementation of a tobacco cessation program using health information technology to alert doctors to which patients are smokers, p rompt the physicians to address the issue during thep atients visit and then refer patients to appropriate comm unity-based resources for support and guidance to help them quit. By linking patients with community resources, this process will help develop a smooth transition between what happens d uring a doctors visit and the type of sustained help patients need once they leave the doct ors office. T his project is just one e xample of how the network allows research to be cond ucted in real-world settings to ensure that proven research can be adapted to actual clinical settings. The network also will get treatments and pro-g rams to patients more quickly by engaging with practit ioners on the ground. Over the last year, we have s een a tremendous groundswell of support for advancing a statewide vision that would enable r esear c hers, clinicians, communities and patients to unite in tackling some of Florida s biggest h ealth challenges, said David R Nelson, an assistant vice p resident for research at UF and director of the UF CTSI. This grant will help us build on prior state and federal investments to make that vision a reality The statewide network is d edicated to helping r esearchers and patients from u nderserved and vulnerable populations become involved in community-based research.T o this end, the grant will fund three researchers per year from either Florida A&M University or Edwar d W aters C ollege, both of which ar e his t orically black colleges and univ ersities, to conduct research in clinics affiliated with the network and recruit patient participants from minority populations. This effort will ensure treatments and programs ser ve the entir e population of the state and are tailored to i ndividual community needs. The funding for this pr oject comes on the heels of recent appropriations of approximately $16 million by the Florida Legislature to fund cancer r esear c h at the UF Health Cancer Center, said David S. Guzick, UF senior vice president of health affairs and president of UF Health. ogether these funds will allow UF to tackle cancer, which is the leading cause of death in Florida, on multiple fronts across the state. For more information on the statewide network, visit www.ctsi.ufl.edu/research-initiatives/projects/oneflorida/. They say to be careful what you wish for because it may come true. And not be e xactly what you expected. In the town of Fernandina Beach, this may be one of those times. There is a vocal section of the population that apparently wishes to return to the past, in regard to the city government. And to bring back some officials from earlie r years. While the current city c ommissioners have not garnered everyones approval, they have accomplished some things. In addition, they havent had anywhere near the missteps of their predecessors. S o for memorys sake, let us relive some of the past a nd then fast forward into today. The previous hierarchy (commissioners and staff) had a litany of miscalculations, maneuvers, etc. that are easy to remember, hard to forget. In their infinite wis-d om, they: Removed the twinkling lights f rom the trees in downtown, and spent $50,000 to put in inferior ground lights. Tried t o restrict the towns p opular huckster, Felix, from peddling his produce. Pushed through a $15 million downtown restructuring plan without allowing citiz ens to vote on it. Borrowed more than $2 m illion as the initial part of the grand restructuring plan, and delayed doing anything with it (while paying interest on it). Secretly assessed $800,000 in impact fees onl ocal restaurants. Attached a fee on residents utility bills to help pay the interest on the money t hey intended to borrow. Gave lucrative contracts to Billy Casper Golf and to several consultants, with little or no performance requirements. Raised taxes and pursued revenues (i.e., more taxes) vigorously to continue t o grow the government. Fought, and eventually l ost, a multimillion-dollar lawsuit over the operations at the city airport. (Should we go on, or do you get the point?) While the current regime has not remedied some of the difficult issues before them, t heir performance has certainly not been emblematic of t heir predecessors. To start with, City Manager Joe Gerrity has reformed and refined the building department, making it more business friendly. There also seems to be a much-wel-c omed citizen-friendly mindset and attitude among city employees. Meanwhile, city commiss ioners balanced the budget, but had to rely on a slight tax increase to do it. They placed Casper Golf on notice for lackluster performance, leading to improved conditions at the city golf course. They helped put the twinkling lights back in the trees, revamped some r ecreational facilities and built a boardwalk at Main Beach a nd supported the new library. With few gaffes or regrettable comments in the process. So when residents wish for something other than what they currently have, it h elps to step back and reflect. Because the reflection can b lind you. Steve Nicklas is a financial advisor with a major U.S. firm who lives on Amelia Island. His columns appear in several area newspapers.

MARY MAGUIRE News-Leader T he five-year-old boat ramp at Goffinsville Park in Nassauville is not safe to use and will be closed for six to eight weeks, according to the countys F acilities Maintenance Department. O fficials say the aluminum boat ramp and floating dock is s heared in several places and must be replaced. They were constructed in 2009 at a cost of $75,000. Barricades are up and the c ountys director of facilities maintenance is asking people tos tay away. It could easily toss you in t he water, and you dont want to get tossed in the water with those currents, said Facilities Maintenance Director Bob Knott. We have closed the boat ramp for public safety Knott said the rest of the p ark is open to the public. This includes the playground, picn ic shelter, trail and restrooms. Knott said strong currents and the boat ramps design dont work. He estimates the replacement cost at $12,000. Previous engineers never considered all the stresses from the cross currents, said Knott. Had they done proper engin eering, they would have engineered the ramp in one piece. T hey designed the ramp and floating dock as two pieces and i t doesnt work in this location, in these conditions, said Knott. The county will handle most of the work, including removing the existing ramp, said Knott.H e said he is working with sheriffs office to get the dock o ut of the water. Sheriff Leepers departm ent has got some equipment we need and anytime we can work together we will do that to save the taxpayer s money Knott said they are planning to make repairs and hope to use the dock in the future at ad ifferent location. Well find a use for them, s omewher e , said Knott. Knott is collecting quotes from metal fabricators now and did not yet know when the work will be completed. e are trying to get three bids, and were working to gett he work done as fast as we c an, said Knott in an interview o n Monday The popular park is located about three miles south of A1A off Old Nassauville Road. It occupies 19.42 acres along the N assau River and the views are stunning. T he park opened in 2009. It cost $2 million to build. This park and the boat ramp are not old and this should not have happened,s aid Knott, who has been on the job since 2012. It is disappointing, especially at this time o f year because many people will want to take their boatso ut. Knott said the damage was n oticed earlier this month during a routine inspection. Knott said he does inspections witht he countys Parks and Recreation Project Manager Jeff Little monthly. We took some video to show whats happening, saidK nott. We wanted to document how on an average day the d ock will repeatedly slam together. It was a bad design.

The county commission a pproved an extension at its meeting Monday night. The final date to accept bids is now July 8. The review committee will open the bids on July 9 at1 0 a.m. Bids for the new 9-1-1 cent er will also be considered at the meeting. The review committee includes the directors of the countys facilities maintenance and building departments. Contract Manager Charlotte Young will serve as the facilitator. A dditionally, a construction manager for St. Johns County has also agreed to serve on the committee. Officials say that Michael Rubin will provide additional technical expertise. At Mondays meeting, County Attorney David Hallman said contractors requested the extension. He e xpects the county to receive f our bids. All of the contract ors have been pre-qualified. The county has put $10 million in the bank for the project. Officials told contractors that they thought the project should come in ar o und $6 million. We said we would take the lowest (bid A t the meeting, Hallman offered a simple review of the b id process, calling it a double-envelope system. The bids, he said, ar e likely to include two sealed envelopes, including one with the overall project price and the other with a detailed scopeo f the work, including technic al details and a plan for carr y ing out the assignment. Hallman said all of the pric ing envelopes will be opened, and the one with the lowest number will be pursued for technical review. If it is deemed to be com plete and compliant, it is a ccepted without looking at t he others, said Hallman. s not a combination of who is the prettiest and the lowest. Just the lowest. Hallman said any bids not opened by the review committee can be opened by a publ ic records request. He told the board to expect calls from companies that did not win the contract. Here is what they would say, he said. Mine is so much better. We use local guys or better brick, said Hallman. C ommissioners did not ask for a local preference when they put the project out for bid, according to the countys contract management office. The board has said publicly that it is seeking the lowest price. Members never voiced support for giving local resid ents and businesses an opportunity to be included in the work. The county has been planning to build a new sheriff administration building for more than a decade. The board has budgeted $10 million for the project and has the m oney in the bank, but there is dispute among the board about whether to pay cash or keep the bank account beefya nd borrow the money, even if i t means paying millions of doll ars more in interest payments. T he board has not decided what to do. The countys outside financial advisor has come to two meetings to outline the options. That was months ago. So far, the board agreed to see h ow much the building costs. T he sheriff operates out of a cobbled collection of old trailers along A1A in Yulee, less than a mile east of I-95.

For the single man or woman, finding the ideal mate seems like a daunting, imposs ible task. However, the truth about finding an ideal mate isa ctually very simple it is simply that many people just d o not know where to look or how to begin. If you are keen to get out of singledom and into a loving relationship, this article is geared at helping y ou work out how to get started on your search. S ome people hate being single. Some of us imagine t hat when we finally find the one, that is when we will finally start living. To the contrary, our job is to live fully that is how your mate will k now you. Look around your life for ways that you might bep reventing love from finding you. If you are traveling in the f ast lane of life with little time for nurturing the heart or spirit, or if you hide out in a way that isolates you or do not recognize opportunities, t he window of opportunity could be delayed or missed.M ake a choice to uncover beliefs and behaviors that no l onger serve you. Cleanu p what you no longer n eed, get your life in the best order possible and you w ill find yourself get-t ing ready for a great r elationship. This will open the doors and the windows to love and begin to truly open your heart as well. H ow to start: Honor the state of not yet h aving a mate. Enjoy your life, go out with friends and purs ue paths of self-improvement. Spend time fine-tuning skills, nurturing interests and having adventures. Study, take courses and do things t hat help you grow personally, spiritually and professionally.W ork on creating the life you want to be leading even if there is no one to share it with yet and in the process, y ou will create a fuller, richer and more welcoming life.P rince Charming is not going to knock on your door. The h ealthier you become, the healthier partner you will attract. Mythology, fairy tales and Hollywood movies that s hape our consciousness about soulful love and epicl overs have a series of challenges to meet and master, a nd a few dragons to slay, before they can claim the precious prize of everlasting love. The same holds true for modern soul mates. While s ome people seem lucky in love as if they were born ina state of readiness for true intimacy and partnership t he rest of us typically have some life lessons to muddle through first. Identifying the dragons: Be brave now and name t he things dragons that are keeping you from love.A re you immature in love relationships? D emanding? In your mind, t hey are the source of all w rongdoing, and nothing they c an say is going to make you consider their side of the story. Controlling? Do you allow others to be themselves, or do you unduly influence their behavior. N eedy? No matter how m uch they gave you yesterd ay, you can never be filled. Obsessive? You may dwell at length on whether an offhand comment at work alienated a co-worker, or whether a small misunderstanding ruined a romantic relationship. D o you love too much? Y ou demand attention or reass urance from the other person, requiring repeated statements of proof of their commitment level or feelings for you. Do you give yourself away too fast? You tell them every-t hing there is to tell about you o r do you disclose all your f eelings, fears and insecurities too soon. Have a hard time accepting faults in yourself or oth ers? If you want to have a relationship with yourself that is realistic and conducive to growth, then you need to b ecome your own mother. A sensible mother can distin-g uish between that which is useful for her child and that w hich is detrimental. But she does not stop loving the child when it misbehaves. Do you consistently choose the wrong kind of peop le, with the same kinds of issues? Try selecting a matew ith your head versus your heart. That way, instead of a utomatically selecting the same type of person for the same negative traits, you select a partner who is entirely different. For instance, if y ou grew up feeling invisible or ignored, you may avoids omeone who shows a real interest in you. Instead, you m ay feel more attracted to someone who is distant or withholding of affection. Are you stuck in a relationship with the wrong person? T he moment you release the expectation that you can onlyc omplete yourself with another, the moment you can r elease the idea that you have t o adhere to societys mold, is t he moment you find freed om. And in freedom, you can find true happiness. Begin to identify the things that get in your way and have burned you in the past. That is the first step toward healing and adjusting y our behavior. When looking a t anyone from an abused b ackground, look instead at how they behave toward children, pets, people weaker or subordinate to themselves, stressful situations and personal conflicts. Many people from abusive backgrounds become strong and gentle butm any others perpetuate the a buse. If dating a recovered a lcoholic or addict, years in recovery is a good benchmark. If they stick with recover y for thr e e or mor e years, things will usually only get better with them. The healing:I n healthy relationships, p eople bring one another s omething they do not already have and take each other to a place neither have been. In its essence this love brings an end to the sense of separation because it truly is like being reunited with the self. In the process of loving o ne another, your mate will help heal you, but cannot ber esponsible for fixing you even if he or she wants to, do n ot let them. The healing process must begin inside you. Find a forum in which you can work on healing your h eart, and stick with it. Do it for you and love will follow. Ifh ealing has not begun or progressed through therapy, g rief work, spiritual practice and any other form of transformational work you risk being needy and overly anxious and jumping into the w rong relationship. So choose to make this year a time toh eal and move on. Get ready: B e open. Do you look approachable when you go out? Do you make eye contact? Do you initiate a conversation? Do you have a busin ess or personal card handy if someone wants to exchangep hone numbers? Part of looking for true love is being prep ared to find it, even when y ou least expect it. A void tunnel vision. I am r eferring to someone whose requirements for a mate are so specific that they limit their opportunities for romance. For example, I once counseled a single Jewish male who wanted to meet a Jewish w oman. The only social activit ies he pursued were those l abeled Jewish, and he was getting bored seeing lots of the same faces. I suggested he consider being less restrictive. There are many Jewish singles and those of other faiths who do not attend religious functions or events spe-c ific to their religion. They m ay engage in more interesto riented activities, like biking or hiking. You do yourself a disservice if you limit your pursuits, so be open-minded and you might even discovera new passion. Remove the checklist. T here is no such thing as a p erfect person. If you have a h uge list of qualities you are seeking in a mate, I urge you to write them all down, and then discar d half the list. It is not possible to get everything in one person, and this does not mean you are settling. Know what you can live with a nd what is a deal-breaker for you. Deal breakers includem ental illness, a person with a criminal or prison record, m ultiple marriages and lack of job skills. Look at successful marriages you know, see what makes them work and take it to heart. That will help c reate a reasonable checklist worth keeping. T he date. You should tell them you are looking for a r elationship after the first few dates it is a bit desperate to discuss this on the first date, or as soon as you know you are interested in this person. D o not be in a rush to commit; just make sure you areb oth on the same page. Let them know that is all you are d oing. And bear in mind that you need to use your common sense when sounding out commitment issues; after all, nobody wants to disc uss marriage on the second date. R esist the urge of overdoing email when you meet s omeone on an Internet dati ng site or hand out your e mail address to someone y ou have met casually. It is so easy to correspond endlessly before you make the date. And, all too often, I have seen people later get hugely disappointed when they finally get together and the date falls f lat. T hrough email, people t end to reveal too much, almost as if they are writing in a journal. But there is something to be said for creating a little mystique. If you tell all befor e you meet, where do you go from there? I had one love-coaching client who actu-a lly fell in love or deep infatu ation through an extensive e mail exchange. She was convinced he was The One he was not. So schedule a date and save your conversation for the r eal world not the computer. First impressions mean much more in person. F inally, have fun . .

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 7A W EDNESDAY J UNE 25, 2014 OPINION News-Leader VOICE OF THE PEOPLE D D a a v v i i d d Y Y u u l l e e e e s s t t a a t t u u e e One of the things I liked when I saw the new D avid Yulee statue downtown is that it made me t hink. Who exactly is he? Why is he here in F ernandina Beach? What is he thinking about, examining his watch? What was his world like? His expr e ssion and for m invite you to speculate on the measure of this man, frozen in a moment of time her e on the park bench. Such feelings ar e induced, I believe, because this is a seriously rendered depiction of an individual by a sculptor of considerable talent anda bility. And while its true that life-size statues of i ndividuals have been installed in other towns and c ities on benches or in other such envir o nments to encourage public interaction, I think the con cept is further burnished here. Theres only one place now in Florida wher e you can be pho tographed sitting next to David Y ulee, a man who has had a significant role here and in Floridas history and thats right here in FernandinaB each. And have some fun in that photo, too. K udos to the sculptor Susan Luery for a beaut ifully done, accessible work. And also to Adam Kaufman, the Fernandina Restoration Foundation and the Amelia Island Museum of Histor y for making our downtown mor e historic, distinctive and richer with its pr esence. Id love to see more public works of art of this quality and p ermanence here. R alph W. Allen M arsh Lakes T T h h e e T T r r a a i i t t o o r r ! All the pr opaganda and hype that accompanied the establishment of a sculpture honoring David Levy Yulee on Centre Street compelled me to set the record straight but News-Leader Editor Michael Parnell beat me to it (A man of his time, not ours (June 20 too nice! Simply, David Yulee was a traitor to his countr y to the religion of his birth, to his friends and business par tners. He was one of the architects of the rebellion against the United States and was convicted of treason and served time in prison until released as part of a general amnesty by President Grant. He rid himself of the name Levy one of the 13 tribes of Israel adopting the name Y ulee, an Arabic honorific given an ancestor by the king of Morocco, so his Jewish heritage would not inter fer e with his political car eer. He was a con man of the or der of Bernie Madoff! Before leaving the U.S. Senate he had legislation passed that benefited his scheme to provide mail to California. He raised millions of dollars from unsuspecting investors based on the concept of a trans-Mexico railr oad that was little more than a pipedream. When his mailboat/train scheme collapsed many investors were left holding an empty bag. His FernandinaCedar Key railr oad was financed with bonds based on land grants before the company had title to the lands. The Florida governor complained he was confronted by a Wall Street scheme that enabled Yulee and others to enrich themselves at the public expense. The chief judge of the Florida Supreme Court called Yulee specious. All this information resides in the files of the Amelia Island Museum of History. But those who preferred to lionize David Levy Yulee to support their mission to honor him chose to ignore the pain and havoc he wrought. As Michael concludes in his essay, a shame. Rober t W eintraub Amelia Island F F e e r r n n a a n n d d i i n n a a w w a a k k e e u u p p The marina sediment problem is ongoing, a nd the scope is unchanged. Past dredging c osts have been high in part because proper d isposal of pollutant sediments is not free. The plan to flush deposited sediments into the Amelia River pr o mises to save hundr e ds of thousands of dollars by dodging the cost to properly r emove and dispose of the muck. That is wher e the savings come fr om by simply flushing tens of thousands of tons of muck into the river If you dont flush much, you dont s ave much so you know where the commission w ants to take this. They dont even require a w ritten plan or r e ceipts for spending tax dollars (tr y r u nning on that platform next time). More muck flushing means more money saving; you cannot save a lot of money without flushing a tr emendous volume of muck into the river! Nobody is showing any concern for the incremental costs to the river, or to water quali-t y, or to aquatic habitat, or to aesthetics or to i ncreasing the need to dredge adjacent c hannels. How about a new tourist slogan to go along with the plan: Muddier than the Mississippi. If flushing pollutant wastes into the river is such a good idea, maybe commissioners will expand this approach. If the Amelia River is t ruly a cost-free disposal system, just think of the a dditional hundreds of thousands of dollars t he city could save by not paying to tr eat our sewage, and by not paying to landfill our garbage or yar d waste. Get with the pr ogram, folks pr oper treatment and disposal is just too expensive. Im sure the commission would gladly hand out another $8,000 of taxpayer money for another proof-of-concept experiment. Somebody can dump a ton of crap and a couple Dumpsters of garbage and a truckload of leaves and branches into the river and next morning presto! its all gone. Success! Don t pay any attention to the naysayers; they don t realize that we will now save millions of dollars. If you believe it is a bad (dumb, irresponsible, unprofessional, etc.) idea for our local government to actually fund and promote the use of the Amelia River as convenient, money-saving waste disposal system, please let them know wher e you stand. Dave Braatz Fer nandina Beach E E c c i i g g a a r r e e t t t t e e s s After a compelling presentation by Deputy Doc McDonald, chair for the Tobacco Free Nassau Partnership (TFNPegarding the risks and marketing of electr onic cigar ettes to the youth and young adults of Nassau County, the Nassau County Commissioners voted unani mously to support an ordinance limiting access and use of e-cigs. Specifically, the sale of e-cigarettes and liquid nicotine is prohibited to persons under the age of 18. Use of the e-cigarette is prohibited in all areas where smoking is currently prohibited, a pr ohibition of self-ser vice mer chandising in the sale of e-cigarettes and liquid nicotine and the enfor cement and penalties for failure to adhere to the ordinance. Compliance will be monitored by the Nassau County Sheriffs Office and Fernandina Beach Police, in the same fashion that they monitor for alcohol and cigarette purchases to minors. The TFNP commends the Nassau County commissioners for joining only a handful of counties in Florida, such as Alachua, Ocala, Gainesville, Weston and Orange Park, in supporting the fight against tobacco. The Tobacco Free Nassau Partnership, which is r epr e sented by many community gr o ups and businesses, works actively to reduce tobacco use in Nassau County. Meetings are held quarterly, with work being done in the fields of educatingy outh and adults about the risks of using tobac c o products, prevention and treatment of tobacc o addiction in conjunction with Northeast Florida AHEC. The Partnership also works to support legislation related to limiting use of tobacco in public ar eas, such as parks, beaches and play grounds, the limitation of smoking in cars when children are passengers and supporting tobacco fr ee multiunit living. The TFNP and SW A T (Students W orking A gainst Tobacco) have also championed Candy F lavored Tobacco Resolutions throughout the county and continue to educate community members at local events on the dangers of all flavored tobacco pr oducts including cigarettes, dip, e-cigarettes and hookah use. Most recently, the TFNP and the Tobacco Prevention Network of Floridar ecognized Sen. Aar on Bean to thank him for working on the issue of smoking in cars when c hildren are present. There is much more work t o be done on this issue, but ther e is a tremendous amount of excitement acr o ss the state that a first step was taken. The next meeting of the Tobacco Free Nassau Partnership will be on Sept. 9 at 4 p.m. in the meeting r oom of the Fer n andina Beach Police Department. Anyone interested in participating or just coming to see the work that is being done is invited. For questions, call Sheryl Gerhardt at 321-3892. Sher yl Ger har dt Tobacco Free Nassau Partnership T T o o o o m m u u c c h h o o f f a a g g o o o o d d t t h h i i n n g g As we commemorate our 13th year of helping thousands of animals in our community, it is very discouraging every spring and early summer for Nassau County shelters and rescue groups to be over flowing with kittens. What do we have to do to get the message acr oss that spaying and neutering animals in your care is the answer. The service is free in Nassau County. There is even a drop-off and pick-up service at two locations. Cats Angels will loan you traps for ferals or stray cats that you are feeding and we will even help trap and transport; and please dont assume a stray that has shown up is fixed. If you ar e feeding them, then go the next step and get them spayed/neutered and vaccinated right away Just this year alone, people and businesses that know what we do and have done for years have called about what to do with the litters of kittens the strays they wer e feeding had. Why is this happening? Each animal welfare group in Nassau County has over 100 cats and kittens for adoption. This is too many, folks! The reality is there are not enough homes for all of them and to add to the burden of the groups out there trying to keep up with all of these kittens is just not fair; not only are kittens a lot of care to keep healthy until adoption, but most shelters and r escue gr oups have many loving adult cats who have been waiting for homes too and simply get overlooked. Please help these animal welfar e gr oups who spend countless volunteer hours caring for the many animals at their facilities by not adding to the already at capacity population. It is your responsibility and there is help out there. Beth Hackney, President Cats Angels, Inc. SPCA God, schools and the F irst Amendment Well, theyve done it again. They ar e public school of f icials, this time top dogs of the Brawley Union School District in Brawley, Calif. What they did was tell a young man three times, no less t hat he couldnt mention God or Jesus in his h igh school graduation speech. They said t hat r e ferences to his religion were inappropriate. I didnt want to compr omise my faith, 18-year old Br ooks Hamby said. He just wanted to say something that would bem eaningful and would l eave a lasting positive i mpact. His first draft of the speech was written in the for m of a prayer Lor d have mer cy. Hamby was called to the fr ont of fice, wher e a s chool counselor advised h im that the speech was n ot acceptable. Later that day this is the day before graduation, mind you he submitted his second draft, which boldly r efer e nced the schools censorship of his first speech. ... If I could pray with you this evening, his script r ead, I would say something along these lines. The next mor ning, just hours befor e g raduation, Hamby and his parents were summoned to the principals office. No paddling just a war n ing that if this young speaker tried to sneak in some religious content, the microphone would be cut off. After that meeting, Hamby talked to his pastor and then presented a third version of his speech this time to the superintend ent. This speech, of course, was rejected. In fact, it was r eturned with every religious reference blacked out. Now theyre getting really serious. Brooks Hamby wasnt trying to be a rabble-r ouser he said. He didn t want to be a rebel. But he didnt want to compromise his values either. At 5:09 p.m., he emailed his four th speech to the superintendent, the principal and the counselor And when his time came to speak that night, he had not heard back from any of them. He stood before the microphone and spoke of his faith. And the micr ophone worked per fectly At the end, he said: May the God of the Bible bless each and every one of you every day in the r est of your lives. Obviously many public school officials are paranoid that the court will smite them if some student mentions God in a paper or a speech, violating the separation of church and state. So they overreact. They start editing speeches, like Br ooks Hamby s. They try to prohibit religious clubs meeting on school grounds. They tell a second-grader she can t sing A wesome God in an after-school talent show. They write policies that go too far. What they ignore or fail to realize, however, is that under the First Amendments Free Exercise Clause, a student can expr ess his or her r eligious beliefs in a speech or in a paper or in a song. Folks, the U.S. Supreme Court is not the enemy W e are the enemy. Brooks Hamby finally had his say. But he went through a hellish mess before getting to say it. And it shouldnt have been that way.

Play hardball to get your partys nomination. D o whatever dirty party tricks it takes to knock off whats-hername up in Massachusetts, or whats-his-name out in Montana. Compared to you, theyre a pair of minor league batboys two lefty Democrats who cant hit to every field or duck Monica Lewinsky fastballs like you can. T urn it on, Hillary. Spend a billion dollars trying to get your own key to the Oval Office. Crank out two or three more books about all those hard choices you had to make when you were a secretary of state, a U.S. senator and the starving wife of public-servant-in-chief Bill Clinton. A ppear on TV with Diane Sawyer every Monday. Use Bill to seduce the big campaign contributors. Deploy Chelsea to explain to the families of those who died at Benghazi why, now that it matters to your future plans, you really do care about what happened there. A nd if anyone in your party thinks youre too old, too aloof or too close to Wall Street to win the general election in 2016, sic that old attack dog Carville on them. I n case I havent made myself c lear, Hillary, I want you to run for p resident. I dont want any organization on my side of the aisle to oppose your nomination by the Democrats. In fact, maybe Ill see if I can get the GOP to help you win it. I want to see you take the m ound for the Democrats in 2016 a nd face whomever the Republican Party puts up to bat against you. I dont know who thatll be, but it won t matter The GOP has its deepest bench in a long time. Its got half a dozen governors w hose states are doing well Walker in Wisconsin, Kasich in Ohio, Daniels in Indiana, Jindal in Louisiana, Christie in New J ersey, Perry in Texas. Plus theres ex-governor of Florida Jeb Bush, probably the best and brightest of them all. Theyre all executives. They all have real-world experience in governing. The GOP can nominate a ny one of them by pulling his name out of a hat and hed be more qualified to be president than you, Hillary. Lets face it, Hillary. Youve never excelled at anything except being an activist in college and standing by your man Bill. You were a lousy senator from N ew York. You were a lousy secretary of state and not just because of Benghazi. You have no issue to run on, except that youre a woman. And t he only thing you have going for y ou is that youre still married to B ill and everyone loves and adores him now that he is powerless. Hillary, you dont even have the demeanor or the personality to be president. Did you see yourself in that Diane Sawyer interview? D o you think anyone wants an i n-your-face person like you to be p resident? Someone who acts like an arrogant ass Im Hillary Clinton and I want to do what I want to do and so Im going to do it. And by the way, Diane, did I ever tell you how hard Bill and I worked as public servants? And how dirt poor we were when we left the White House? So, seriously. I repeat. Please, H illary. Run. And to the D emocrat Party, I say, Please n ominate her In fact, lets make it official. I, Michael Reagan, hereby endorse Hillary Rodham Clinton to be the 2016 pr esidential nomi nee of the Democrat Party And Hillary, if you run, I even promise you this.

PERRY News-Leader Jana Williams starts enjoying her workday even before s he arrives at Omni Amelia Island Plantation. I love the beauty of this property. Just driving in each morning through the beautiful tree canopy, the marsh on one side and the beautiful ocean on the other side how could you not like your job! I also love the f act that no day is ever the same. But most of all, I love this great group of hospitality professionals that I have the joy of working with each day. Williams started working on the resort part-time 31 years ago in sales. Moving through a couple different departments, s he is now executive assistant to the propertys three top administrators, Managing Director Donald Stamets, General Manager Mary ODonnell and Director of Finance Wayne McLellan. Stamets describes Williams as charming, polite, passionate, s mart and professional. And with her tenure, she understands what has worked well and not so well from our past. Jana is truly the voice of t he Omni Amelia Island P lantation. W ith her deep roots w ithin our community and within the hotel, her knowledge has become priceless, her personality is authentic and genuine, and her wisdom is appreciated, said Stamets. Although shes not on the f ront lines at the property, Williams gets a firsthand look at h ow guests view the resort through guest surveys. These are reviewed on a daily basis and I do a lot of follow-up both with guests and with associates who are mentioned as having given exemplary service, said Williams. With more than 1,000 employees during the high season, this task alone keeps Williams busy. Handling the occasional less t han stellar review is also part of h er job. Dealing with a challenging guest is probably the most difficult par t of the job. While we a re not perfect and make mistakes, most people understand w hen a mistake is made, but there is always that one guest that can be very difficult to deal with. After growing up in Folks ton, Ga., Williams and her husband, Bruce, have lived on A melia Island for 31 years. This is where we raised our f amily and it will always be home to us, she said. Being a working mom, her job always allowed Williams to be active and participate in activities with her daughters Beth and Emily. I served as PTO president at Fernandina Beach MiddleS chool for three years and was on the PTO board for a total of s ix years. I served on the Fernandina Beach High School Foundation Board for seven years. She and her husband have a lways been active at First Baptist Church. S ince being diagnosed with melanoma four years ago, sitt ing on the beach reading is no longer an option during leisure hours for Williams. I do enjoy reading whenever I get the chance, but spending time with our daughters, sons-in-law and our two-yearold grandson is the way I like to spend my time outside of work. Omni Amelia Island Plantat ion is located at 39 Beach L agoon Road.

Keeping seniors and their pets fed HEATHER A. PERRY News-Leader For Debbie Davis, workd ays are long and sometimes difficult but she wouldnt have i t any other way. Davis is devoted to the seniors she serves through the Meals on Wheels program at the Council on Aging. It feels good to know that youve given somebody food or pet food or soup. I may not be able to do much else for t hem, but I can make sure they get a meal. A s a 14-year employee, Davis is the nutrition manager and Meals on Wheels coordinator. Arriving at 6 a.m., Davis first prepares the boxes for the program. M eal preparation begins around 11 a.m. as Davis assemb les the hot meals for delivery to homebound and frail seniors. By law, the food has to be at a particular temperature, so the drivers have to carry thermometers and make sure they are at the right temp upon deliver y to the home, said COA Director Janice Ancrum. D avis also prepares the pet f ood for the Meals on Wheels f or Pets program and goes by Publix two mornings each weekday to pick up donated bakery goods that are used as daily bingo prizes for seniors in the Adult Day Car e Program. Davis also prepares lunchesf or these seniors. A s if all this isnt enough to k eep her busy, Davis also w orks with the Soup T r ain to get meals to seniors on the Meals on Wheels waiting list, a nd manages the Westside N utrition Program with the help of two assistants. Ive just always worked in institutional culinary. I was head cook in a senior center up north. I like being around thes eniors, said Davis, who pitches in to deliver sometimes. Most all of the people weve got have been on the p rogram for awhile so they know me and they know my people. Ive got 21 volunteers here in Fernandina and theyre very happy to see them at thed oor and to receive their m eals. L eisure days find Davis either gardening or on the road. My husband and I both h ave motorcycles so we ride and we collect antique motorcycles and antiques. After moving here from Benton, Ill., to be near three sets of friends and her hus-b ands cousin, Davis shares her island home with husband T ommy and Yorkies Halley and Courtney. The couple has o ne grown child, Shelley. For information about receiving Meals on Wheels, contact the Council on Aging at 261-0701 to speak to a casem anager.

Florida News Connection ORLANDO Four Florida metr o ar e as Orlando, T a mpa, Jacksonville and Miami top a nationwide list of metropolitan ar eas deemed most danger ous to pedestrians. T he report Dangerous By D esign released by Smart Growth America highlights the number of people killed annually while walking or bicy cling on roadways. Laura Cantwell, associate state dir ector of advocacy for AARP Florida, says older A mericans, people living with d isabilities and children are disproportionately impacted by unsafe roadways. Older adults often face mor e risks as pedestrians because they are less able to react quickly to oncoming vehicles, and if they are struck theyre l ess likely to recover from the collision, she points out. When compar e d with other states, Florida ranks number one in pedestrian fatalities with almost 5,200 deaths from 2003 to 2012. The report recommends increasing pedestrian-safe walking ar eas, ramps on curbs to accommodate wheelchairs and s trollers and bike lanes. A dditionally, it recommends t he passage of the Safe Street Act, currently before Congress, that would r e quir e federally funded roads to accommodate bicyclists and pedestrians, in addition to cars. The report notes that since t he study concluded in 2012, s everal Florida metropolitan a reas have made great strides in improving pedestrian safety. Jacksonville hir e d a full-time bicycle and pedestrian safety coor dinator and the Best Foot For war d Coalition in central Florida has a goal of r educing pedestrian fatalities and injuries by 50 percent in the next fivey ears. S till with that, Cantwell says the state has a long way to go. Theres a lot of places in Florida that dont even have sidewalks in a lot of the cities, and making sure that if you do have sidewalks that there are enough crosswalks so that people ar e able to cr oss over the road safer and more comfortable, she says. Nationwide, 47,000 pedes trians were killed from 2003 to 2012, which, according to the report, is six times as many who d ied during the same time perio d in natural disasters. E xploring is a nationwide career-based learning program, d esigned to expose and immerse high school and college-aged young persons into a career field of choice. The Nassau County Sheriffs Office Explorer Post 750 was re-established in 2010 to show Nassau C ountys young men and women what law enforcement is a ll about. Exploring not only teaches career-based topics, but also prepares young people for daily life as an adult by teaching responsibility, good citizenship, ethics, care for the environment, s portsmanship and making good life choices. Many of our Explorers have gone on to be employed with the sheriffs office in many areas, said Sheriff Bill Leeper. Explorers work together with deputy sheriffs and other members of the sheriffs office, called advisors. Advisors supervise all Explorer Post functions, such as special events called details w here we assist with security, t raffic, parking, crowd control a nd other events. T he Nassau County Sheriff O ffice Explorer Program is a m ember of the Boy Scouts of America and adheres to the s tandards contained with the bylaws of the program. Nationwide there are more than 2,000 charted posts with over 40,000 members. The goal oft he Explorer program is for m embers to explore law e nforcement as a possible career choice, develop physical fitness and community ser v ice. The intent of law enfor ce ment exploring is to educate and involve youth in police opera tions, to interest them in possible law enforcement functions w hether they enter policing or not. Through involvement, the law enforcement Explorer program establishes an awareness of the complexities of police service. Explorers are given the opportunity to broaden their u nderstanding and gain firsthand knowledge of the chall enges and job skills that make up their communitys police service. The program will encourage the individual to continue their education, encourage the Explorer to participate in rewarding and productive c ommunity service activities, and to help the Explorer prep are for their future roles as citizens and community members. Explorer personnel perform a tremendous service to the citizens of Nassau County Leeper said. They truly exemplify the spirit of striving for the p ublic good. The Explorers are involved in many different training exerc ises to assist them in their a ctivities. The following is a list o f some of the training exercise s offered: Guest speakers from the s heriffs office and surrounding agencies Training in first-aid, CPR and emergency preparedness Traffic control Sheriffs Explorer Academy A ride-a-long program, w hich places the Explorer in c ars with the deputies during reasonable hours and conditions. The Explor e rs ar e eligible for this pr ogram after they have completed the Sheriffs Explorer Academy. T he following is a list of qualifications that are required of all individuals who are interested in becoming an Explorer: Must have completed the e ighth grade and is 14 years of a ge, or is 15 years of age but h as not yet reached their 21st birthday Must be enrolled in school, maintaining a 2.0 grade p oint average on a 4.0 scale Must pass a criminal backg round check and be a current r esident of Nassau County U nifor m s and associated e quipment will be provided by the sheriffs office at no cost to the Explorer. However, the Explorer may be responsible for purchasing a pair of black leather shoes or boots, whichc an be polished.

C C o o c c k k f f i i g g h h t t i i n n g g c c h h a a r r g g e e d d Three men were arrested in Callahan June 15 i n connection with a cockfighting operation after a Nassau County deputy pulled them over for erratic driving, according to a police report. An officer stopped the vehicle around 11:30 p.m. June 14 at the intersection of US 1 and Sauls Road because it was repeatedly driving over the white line, the report stated. Two passengers w ere also in the vehicle. On advising the driver, Wayne Mack Brown, 3 5, of Middleburg, of the reason for the traffic stop, Brown reportedly replied, Yeah, thats always been a bad habit of mine. An officer who arrived shortly after the traffic stop noticed roosters in wooden crates in the vehicles rear hatch, according to the report. After being read his rights, Brown allegedly t old police he was coming from a cockfight, and said weapons for rooster fighting could be foundu nder the hood and in the air vent of the vehicle. Police reportedly found seven sets of metal spurs and other items used in cockfighting in t he air vent. They also discovered a small notebook with numbers written in it, after searching Brown, and a piece of paper a ttached to his shirt with as afety pin. Police reportedly found two .22 caliber bullets in the front center console, plus eight roosters and one hen in wooden containers, with no food or water. They also found a large s heet of tarpaper, two bottles of vitamins with instructions for fight day and a syringe Browns aid was for medicine for the birds. A glasses case and a pipe were also found that tested positive for marijuana. Those were determined to belong to William Dean Carter, 48, of Green Cove Springs, who also admitted to attending the cockfight, according to the report. A search of the third passenger, Tyrone Floyd, 4 7, of Middleburg, revealed he was carrying a Raven P25 handgun and ammunition. Floyda dmitted to police he was a convicted felon. The items confiscated were reportedly all indicative of animal fighting, and were photographed and placed into evidence. A card with information on weigh-ins and $25 parking was later found in Floyds wallet. Brown was arrested for possession of ammun ition by a convicted felon, possession of animals used for fighting, possession of equipmentf or animal fighting, unlawful confinement of animals and attending an animal fight. His bond is set at $65,010 and he remained in Nassau County J ail on Friday. Carter was arrested for attending an animal fight, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

14A W EDNESDAY J UNE 25, 2014 NEWS News-Leader CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Beach babies T his time of year a band of early-morning volunteers with Amelia Island Sea Turtle Watch patrols our beaches looking for turtle nests and eggs. The rest of us beach walkers can easily spot these n ests once the volunteers are finished. Each nest, with a bout 100 eggs inside, is carefully roped off and marked to protect it for the two months or so it will take until the young turtles hatch out. Other beach babies also receive special protection. A reas of Amelia Island beaches that present likely habitat f or nesting terns and plovers are also carefully cordoned off to prevent inadvertent causalities from foot and vehicular traffic. Eggs and baby birds are well camouflaged and difficult to spot. If y ou see roped off areas with shorebird signage, please r espect these boundaries and be careful nearby as well, since moving baby birds do not always stay in the roped off areas. And if you have a dog, please do not let themr un loose! Although turtles and shorebirds are the most obvious babies on our beaches in summer, they are not the onlyo nes. If you are lucky, observant and curious you just m ight find evidence of some others. Take mollusks for i nstance. Recently I received an email fr o m Robyn Nemes with photos attached of a s trange-looking mass made of many individual compartments that she f ound washed up o n the beach. It looked similar enough to the linear strand of egg cases from a l ightning whelk snail so I knew it cont ained baby mollusks. But what kind of mollusk? With the help of a Google search for mollusk egg cases, sure enough it was an egg mass from another related marine snail s pecies, a horse conch. This conch is the largest s hellfish in the United States, with adults growing almost two feet long. Although this giant shell is found along the coast from North Carolina to the Gulf of Mexicoo nly the state of Florida has honored it by naming it the State Shell. Both lightning whelks and Florida horse conchs producet hese masses of egg cases. Each compartment in the c ase contains a few tiny snails which go through a larval s tage in the case and eventually break out of their sac to star t their life roaming the ocean floor. The cases you m ight find on the beach either still contain these snails, which you can see if you look closely, or instead show tiny exit holes where the babies escaped. There are other mollusk b abies on the beach too, even harder to find and more conf using to identify. Have you ever seen a snail collar? Moon snails that live below the surface of the sand also produce eggs after mating, but instead of encapsulating these tiny eggs in hollow s acs, these eggs are imbedded in sand and snail slime t hat together form a rubbery semi-circular mass on the sands surface. When these tiny eggs hatch in the surf, the young larval (veliger snails swim and in a few more days grow a shell and settle o n the bottom like their parents. F inally, another egg case commonly washes up on our beaches, but this time from a fish. Have you ever found a mermaids purse? Some people know it by that name, oth-e rs call it the devils pocketbook. But what you are really looking at is the egg case fora cartilaginous fish, a skate. Unlike the egg cases of mol-l usks each case contains only a single young fish. Those m ermaids purses that wash up on the beach are most a lways empty ones, shed after the young skate emerges or dried out dead ones. Sometimes a live embryo is inside if you feel something moving, toss it back in the water. Its worth a try to save i t. S o, ther e ar e mor e than just seashells and sharks teeth on our beaches, lots mor e, if you pay attention. T o find out mor e about what you are seeing, I strongly recommend the book FloridasL iving Beaches, which gives y ou great photos to help steer y ou to your own Google sear c hes to find out more. Enjoy our beaches this summer and see how many babies you can find ther e. Its a living breathing world out there just waiting to be discovered. P at Foster-Turley is a zoolog ist on Amelia Island.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK OUTDOORS/ TIDES WEDNESDAY, JUNE25, 2014NEWS-LEADER/ FERNANDINABEACH, FL ORIDAFlorida State's D.J. Stewart closed the book on the 2014 season by adding two more All-America honors to what was an impressive sophomore campaign. Stewart was named a first-team All-American by the American Baseball Coach-es Association and garnered second-team honors from Perfect Game. Stewart becomes the 42nd player in Florida State history to be recognized as a first team All-American and first since 2012 when Robert Benincasa, Jayce Boyd and James Ramsey were all named first-team All-Americans, including Boyd and Ramsey by the ABCA. Stewart was also named to the ABCA All-Atlantic Region first team. Earlier this year, Stewart, who garnered All-ACC honors for the second year in a row, became the seventh Seminole in school history to garner Player of the Year accolades. He was also recognized as a second team All-American by Baseball America, Collegiate Baseball and the NCBWA, a third-team Capital One Academic All-American, a semifinalist for both the Golden Spikes Award and Dick Howser Trophy and was named to the NCAA T allahassee All-Region team all in 2014. The sophomore outfielder currently ranks in the top 10 in the ACC in eight offensive categories while leading the league in average (.351) and on-base percentage (.472). He also ranks in the top 50 nationally in six categories including base-on-balls per game (0.75, 27th), on-base percentage (30th), doubles per game (0.36, 39th), doubles (19, 41st), base-on-balls (40, 42nd) and runs batted in per game (0.94, 48th). Stewart finished league play hitting .388 with 11 doubles, four home runs and 30 RBI in 26 games. The Yulee native finished the season tied for the team lead with 20 multi-hit games and second with 13 multi-RBI games. He r ecorded a career-high four hits three times in 2014. Stewart also finished the season reaching base safely in 52 of the 53 games in which he played. Stewart will represent his country this summer as a member of the USA Collegiate National Team.

B ASEBALL Stewart c ollects honors Stewart W est Nassau High School senior pitcher Morgan Williams, the 2014 all-Nassau County girls softball team's most valuable player.W illiams MVP on all-county team Karla Beasley Chelsea Holland Courtney Smith Ariel McCullough Hannah Pipkin Kacie Kelly Mackenzie Gray Graison Murray Mariah Durrance AMANDA REAMC ommunity NewspapersAlthough Morgan Williams' father couldn't physically be in attendance, his presence was strong at the Lady Warriors' senior night. Christopher Williams built the foundation of his daughter's love for softball, setting up a pitching mound in the backyard and coaching batting practice every night. But he passed away before Williams ever pitched a high school softball game. She expected to walk with only her mom, Sandy, on senior night. As West Nassau prepared to face Trinity Christian, W illiams told her teammates she was not going to cry during senior night. Then she noticed a group of adults changing into yellow shirts in the opponent's parking area. She thought the T rinity parents were dressing alike and making a larger presence and she was a bit peeved, given the fact the Lady Warriors were honoring their seniors. "I stared at them all the way from the parking lot all the way to the stands ... and then I began to recognize them," Williams said. They were her father's former softball teammates from various adult leagues. Tears fell down her face as they formed a line and she hugged them one by one. "It was awesome," Williams said. "There was just a whole line of them and I just kept hugging them. I didn't want it to stop." And when it was time to announce the senior players, they were beside her and her mother on the field, standing in memory of her father. She continues to strive for improvement on the field and stepped up as a leader this year, both for West Nassau and as Nassau County's most valuable player a position she shared with Yulee's Karla Beasley in 2012. "I just matured as a person, as an individual," W illiams said. "I became more of a leader and I knew what it took to lead the team." Leadership was important among the Lady Warriors, as the team's starting line-up included four freshmen by the end of the season. And equally matching the youth of the team was its determination and athleticism. West Nassau made it to the state's Elite Eight in Class 4A, falling 2-1 to West Florida the eventual state champion. W est Nassau reviewed game film in preparation for the Lady Jaguars' visit to Callahan. They noted the pitcher's mannerisms. "She was definitely a strong leader of that team," W illiams said. "We knew that we had to go after her and there was a couple fast girls on their team. We practiced hard that week before. Hard, hard." Rain caused the game to be delayed multiple times, r esulting in a Sunday afternoon game. Although the Lady Warriors ended their season that afternoon, W illiams is proud of what they accomplished. "We definitely clicked this year," she said. "After our Bartow tournament, we came out of there 2-2, that was a major point and we knew we could make it." Unity was key, as the team bonded every moment of the trip, never leaving anyone out. Food was the team's top motivator. "We love to eat," Williams laughed. "We have to eat before a game and, if we win, our reward is we get to eat after the game." The team listened to "Let It Go" from the "Frozen" soundtrack prior to the win at Buchholz and became superstitious, adding the song to their pre-game rituals. "Lord, that song got on my nerves, but if it was doing the job ..." Williams said. They won every game after that until they faced W est Florida. W ith her high school career complete, she prepares for her next venture as a pitcher at Seminole State College, where she plans to study occupational therapy. The 2014 all-Nassau County girls high school softball team: Morgan Williams, senior pitcher, West Nassau.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Hot kingfish and redfish bite"It was absolutely perfect conditions for catching redfish during last weekend's Inshore Fishing Association's Jacksonville Redfish T ournament," Fernandina Beach's Adam Loud said. "There was very little wind, which helped my fishing team partner Warren Stoughton and I sight fish for shallow water redfish in our home waters of Amelia Island. Also a low tide arrived at 10:30 in the morning helped us locate large concentrations of shallow water redfish." "Simply every one of our favorite low tide redfish spots was holding good numbers of r edfish and they were also on a good bite as well. Most of our reds were caught while casting Berkley Gulp shrimp and plastic swim baits. "We were a little disappointed though in not being able to catch a second large r edfish to go along with the 6.59-pound redfish we already had in our boats live well. We did, however, hook a good tournament redfish that broke the fishing line right at the boat. Also two of the redfish that we had caught measured just over the maximum 27-inch length." Like many of last weekend's fishermen, it was steamy hot with air temperatures running in the mid 90s with water temperatures running in mid 80s. "We made sure we filled our boat's live well with clean water from the deep waters of the Intracoastal before navigating the shallow water redfish structures," Loud said. "There was actually a threeto five-degree difference in the water temperatures from the deep channel to the one foot of water we were redfishing in." The local father-and-son fishing team of Ronnie and Nathan Turner also did real well during the IFA redfish tournament. "We caught both of our r edfish during the first few hours of the tournament," Nathan Turner said. "The first redfish hit a top water plug and the second redfish was caught while casting a plastic swim bait. Unfortunately, one of our redfish died in the livewell, which cost us an eight-ounce penalty and definitely a higher finish." Nathan and father Ronnie Tu r ner weighed a two-redfish aggregate weight of 11.12 pounds. Fernandina Beach's Harvey Cox and Trish Hardage also finished well in last weekend's redfish tournament while weighing in two legal r edfish for an aggregate weight of 9.84 pounds, good for 14th place. Some 77 redfish teams fished the event, which was held from Morning Star Marina on the St. Johns River in Mayport. Don Dingmans' 2014 Mercury Marine King Buster 400 Kingfish Tournament was held over the weekend with excellent results as well. Local kingfish pro Kenny Crawford weighed in a 27.5pound kingfish for 15th place. The largest kingfish was weighed in by Jerry Carter on the Reel Quick; it weighed 43.5 pounds. "We really did not have a good tide for king fishing this past Saturday," Crawford said. "I prefer the flood tide, which did not arrive until 5:30 p.m. that day. "Also, the kingfish bite was really scattered with a few big kings caught at the Red Tops, the Nassau Live Bottom and at offshore fish havens."

It is something that can only happen when you are lucky enough to have all your family together. At our house it doesnt happen often. For most of us that is not an easy thing with busy young famil ies. A birthday celebration created an opportunity to coordinate a visit t hat included the entire clan. It was perfect time to take pictures. The grands are at a wonderful ages between 4 and 8. There are so many wonderful photographers on our island. We worked with Pam Bell, an amazing t alent, known for her family and wedding portraits. Capturing nine adults a nd four children is not an easy task. We knew she could meet our challenges. Of course, we wanted a beach photo. OK, we had the cast of characters. Now to get everyone dressed i n semi-coordinated outfits, but avoiding a uniform look. We choose blues. Pam and her son Jensen met us on one of Amelia Islands amazing beaches ona cloudy, overcast a fternoon. There is something about a b each that makes everyone happy kids run, shoes are kicked off ... everyone is relaxed. Pam has many loves and brings her talent and enthusiasm to all. She has a passion for photography, especially portrait lifestyles babies, weddings and family gatherings. Originally from Valdosta, Ga., her f amily had a house on St. Simons Island, Ga. When her Navy husband, W ade, had a chance to teach ROTC in Fernandina, they grabbed the opportunity. She loves music and solo handbells are her main outlet. She is the mother of four children, two granddaughters and her troop of basset/beagles JoJo, Bentley and D aisy. She has taught music at both Montessori and St. Michaels before m aking her photography a full-time commitment. Her talent is obvious. She has been taking photographs for over 35 years but turned pro as she describes it in 2000. The evolution of photography from 35mm film to the magical world of digital has created endless opportunities for photographers. I most admire her talent with children. You never know when one will g o shy or is determined to make faces. Adults have their own little quirks and have to be coached to geta picture that works. Then there are the multipliers how to get a good picture of everybody. Pam will tell you shoot, shoot and shoot. And she d oes. Click, click and click. She recently shared, I love photog raphing people, pets, landscapes and things, but people more. Every photo opportunity I get is another chance to get unique photos for my clients. I do love to photograph from an artistic perspective for those once in a lifetime captures. Check into Facebook or her blog, you cant help but smile at photog raphs of brides and grooms, families and especially babies. W e eagerly awaited Pams photographs and almost instantly were able to look at proofs online. They are wonderful and captured our photo romp on the beach perfectly.

W ilson became inter ested in ultra-r un n ing after r e ading the book Bor n to Run by Christopher McDougall detailing his experiences with the long-dis tance r u nners of the T a ra Mara Indian tribe of Mexico s Copper Canyon.

In 2011, the For t Clinch 50 Mile Endurance Run was born, with 40 ultrar unners completing a 50-mile or 100-mile run within 24 h ours. The race has gr own each year and the 2014 e vent, held in April, reached its cap of 100 runners. Wilson plans to expand the race to a 50to 100-kilometer r u n incorporating loops on Big Talbot Island and Amelia Island. His goal is not only to gr ow ultra-racing locally but to make the For t Clinch race a destination event highlighting the history and natural beauty of the area, promoting local businesses and tourism.

E E x x c c h h a a n n g g e e s s t t u u d d e e n n t t s s Recently, the Fernandina Beach Rotar y Club said far ewell to its two Rotary Youth Exchange students who are returning home: Bo young-An of South Kor ea and Mario Jankov from Croatia, shown with Past Pr esident John Boylan. Both students lived with three separate host families Bo on Amelia Island and Mario in Callahan and Br yceville. Bo, who attended Fernandina Beach High School as a freshman, was active in Interact and played in the Jazz Band where she was awarded Top Jazz Musician. Mario, a senior at West Nassau High, volunteered at the Concours dElegance and gained a love for American football while attending both Jaguar and University of Florida Gator games. Both said they enjoyed traveling and lear ning mor e about the people and cultur e of the U.S. The abundance and variety of foods Americans take for granted was another pleasant surprise, they said, as they discovered pizza, steak with loaded bake potatoes and IHOP. However, the memories they will take away were of the warm reception wherever they went and the lifelong r elationships they built while her e. Bo said she would always cherish the friends she found and will tell everyone how wonderful the people of Fernandina Beach and the U.S. are. Mario said that even though he would have to repeat his senior year in Croatia, he wouldnt have given up the past year for anything.
