MARY MAGUIRE News-Leader A skydiving company wants to open in Fer nandina Beach and land its tan dem jumpers on the beach behind Sliders Seaside Grill at South Fletcher Avenue and Sadler Road. ere going to generate money said John Hornsby, who attended the Nassau County Commission meeting Monday to ask for the boar s support. Hornsby said he has been getting the r un-ar ound fr om Fer nandina Beach of ficials, who would have to approve a plan for skydiving on a city beach. Hornsby said he represents the companys owners, which include his brother and sister-in-law, Richard and Lisa Hor nsby He identified the busi ness as Sky Dive Fernandina Beach. Hor nsby said the business could generate $700,000, based on numbers at his brothers skydiving business in Ar uba. Hornsby said 15 percent of the proceeds would go to the city, and that he already has a deal with McGill Aviation in Fernandina Beach to get the airplanes. Hornsby said the business would employ five people who would do the pushing. That comment generated laughs from the board and Hornsby corrected himself to say that no one would be pushed. He said plans call for tandem jumpers every 10 to 15 minutes, with planes completing a r ound in 30 min utes. He did not say what days or hours the business would operate. Hor nsby told commissioners that the effort is a good marketing opportunity for Amelia Island. He said the jumpers would wear helmets mounted with video cameras that would at times point at four canopies stenciled with the wor ds Amelia Island.

MARY MAGUIRE N ews-Leader N assau County accepted a bid W ednesday for the construction of a n ew sheriffs administration building and for the expansion of the Emergency Operations Center to house 911 dispatchers. The bids, totaling nearly $10 million, wer e within county estimates. Acon Constr uction Company of J acksonville came up with the lowest p rice to design and build both proje cts. Her e are the price tags: Sheriffs administration building: $7,756,000, 35,000 square feet. 911 Call Center: $1,920,000, 5,000 squar e feet. Design work gets under way in August and shovels ar e scheduled to g et in the ground Dec. 22, according t o county officials. Excited and anxious, said Sheriff Bill Leeper, who attended the opening of the bids Wednesday morning at the Rober t M.

The new building will help us prov ide better service to the public and better conditions for our employees, said Leeper. County Commission Chair Bar r y Holloway also attended the opening of the bids. Absolutely Im happy with the n umbers, said Holloway Its less than $10 million and I t hink that will help us as a board make a decision on whether to write a check or look into financing the project. Holloway said he is leaning towar ds borrowing the money. Of course in business you want to pay for something if you can with cash, but ther e are great advantages to borrowing the money, said Holloway. Rates are so low and there are tax advantages to consider as well, T he county board has set aside $10 m illion for the construction project. T he five commissioners have disagreed about whether to pay cash or borrow the money. Commissioner Danny Leeper has previously said in public meetings that he would like to finance the constr uction. C ommissioner Steve Kelley has a dvocated a pay as you go approach. C ommissioner Walter Jr Boatright has leaned towards financing. Commissioner Pat Edwar ds has expressed a desire to pay cash.

A ccording to police reports, Michelle King, 25, of 96023 Hawthorne C ourt, left her house Tuesday at 4:45 a.m. with her husband and three children to drive him to work in Jacksonville, arriving back at the residence about 6 a.m. The child, one of a set of twins, was reportedly discovered by his 6-yearold brother, who went to the vehicle a round 10 a.m. to retrieve a toy. T he older child reportedly removed the toddler from his car seat located on the right rear side of the vehicle, carried him into the house, laid him on the c arpet just inside the door and woke his mother, according to reports. King called 911 after being awakened by her older son. One of my twins was outside. He got outside. And hes all sorts of hot. A nd hes just really tired looking, a tearful King told a dispatcher during h er call to 911. Hes still awake, I think he has heat stroke, she said. I dont know how he got out of the house, King said during the call. I was sleeping with my other children. ... I should know better than to keep any d oors unlocked ... its so hot out there. After being evaluated by rescue workers, the child was found to be suffering from heat exhaustion and dehydration, and was transported to UF Health in Jacksonville, where he was in stable condition, according to reports. T he child had a temperature over 100 degrees when rescue personnel arrived, the report stated. While interviewing King, her son and one of the rescue workers, police discovered that King had forgotten to get the third child out of the SUV when s he returned home from Jacksonville. According to a police report, Mrs. K ings failure to remove the child from the vehicle could reasonably be expected to result in serious injury and/or a substantial risk of death for the child.

For the past 16 years I have had the privilege to serve as your optometrist and take care of your vision and eye health care needs. The success of my practice has been a result of the trust you have instilled in me. It has been a trust I appreciate and have taken very seriously. Upon deciding to return to SW Florida I have spent a great deal of time finding the right optometrist to serve as my replacement. I had to find a Doctor who I felt was talented and caring and the perfect match for the position and practice. I am pleased to introduce Dr. Jerry Koss, who will assume the duties of my practice as of today. He will be taking over at our present location and my wonderful staff will remain to assist in the transition and your continued care. All patient records will remain here under Dr.Koss's care. Isincerely appreciate the support and confidence you have bestowed on me throughout the years by allowing me to be your optometrist. Dr. Koss will take good care of your future vision health. Having found the right doctor allows me to leave knowing you are in good hands. Please join with my loyal staffin welcoming Dr.Koss.

This report is new vehicle sales in our country through June. The beat goes on for improved sales accomplishm ents in America, as those who follow national news are aware. The first half of the year saw sales of 8,168,888 vehicles, a 4 percent improvement over last years 7,833,026. We have come back to what is considered a more typical volume, pre-recession. L ow rates and an aging fleet of vehicles on the road have combined to keep the momentum in place. As usual, the raw numbers in the nearby box are accompanied by some observations. We will again list the top seven manufacturers creating U.S. sales, after which there is a b ig volume drop-off. I would call your attention to the middle column, the percent change in raw sales. If you didnt gain 4 percent in sales, you lost ground. Chrysler and Nissan were the clear winners, each with above-market sales increases and nice mark et share gains. GM held on pretty well, despite having to play defense on recalls. Toyota picked up a tenth of share o n a 5 percent sales bump. Ford lost a full point of share on a 2 percent sales drop. Some suggest Ford and Honda, which also went backwards, are not chasing numbers. They are focused on profit m argins instead. The Korean brands are a factor, but have retreated from big gains to more of a typical market performer. VW says it lacks product as a justification of the sales drop. The Jeep division of Chrysler continues to be on fire, up from 229,405 units last year to 332,802 units, a 45 percent gain. I n the high-line arena, gains are above market. Mercedes leads with 163,107 sales, up 8 percent. BMW is a close second, with 157,382 sales for a 12 percent gain. Lexus is third, with 138,689 sales and a 17 percent gain. Buick (113,472 (84,34959,341 L incoln(44,542 upticks in the teens. Collectively, a healthy market with an expectation for a strong rest of the year.

MARY MAGUIRE News-Leader Steve Rieck is retiring as executive director of the Nassau County Economic Development Board (NCE DB) after seven years on the j ob. Rieck said that his last day would be Sept. 30. He made the announcement in a June 20 letter to the organizations board of directors. County Manager Ted Selby said his office did not receive a copy. I typed it up and put a stamp on it, said Rieck. Im still one of the people who uses the U.S. mail. In an interview last week, Rieck, who turns 65 in August, said he plans to spend time with family, including his wife, two adult children and his t hree-year-old grandson. The first thing Im going to d o is kick back and take it easy, said Rieck. But I have a lot of work to do between now and then. At the top of his To Do l ist, said Rieck, is setting the agenda for the organizations strategic planning retreat. The board and its investors are meeting Sept. 23 at White Oak conser vation center in Yulee to map out a plan for the future. R ieck said he would work w ith the NCEDBs executive c ommittee to find a replacement. The committee includes the boards four officers and three investors from the local business community I wanted to give them time to find someone who can con t inue the goals we have establ ished and move the mission f or w ard, said Rieck. NCEDB member Helmut Albrecht, who is expected to ser ve on the sear c h commit tee, said the or ganization ben efited from Riecks professional leadership. We are grateful to have S teve working for us, said A lbrecht. One of his biggest accomplishments is Nassau Tomorrow Nassau T omor r o w is a fiveyear strategic plan to gener ate jobs in Nassau County. The pr ogram focuses on achieving goals in five ar eas, including b usiness recruitment and mark eting, business retention and workforce development, government affairs, communications and investor r elations. The NCEDB said that in its first year, seven projects br ought in 567 new jobs and $97 million in capital invest m ent. R ieck is also credited with working with county officials to establish the countys first tax incentive pr o gram. The economic development grant was established almost two years ago and is currently providing thousands of dollars in tax r ebates. Among the companies to receive local grants are Science First, ALM Technologies, Vystar Credit Union and DTW Marketing. Steve helped open the door for us, said Nassau County Commission Chair Bar r y Holloway, adding that the community has benefited from Riecks professional experience. He showed us what to do and got us moving in the right dir ection. W e will miss his leadership. Rieck has also been instrumental in helping Rayonier m arket its CrawfordDiamond industrial park on the c ountys West Side.T he 1,800acre site has b een approved for manufacturing, assembly and distribution. Rieck helped organized a cere monial opening in 2012 with Florida Gov. Rick Scott. We dont have a taker yet, but were going to and when w e do we will give thanks to Steve, said Holloway. When Rieck started working for the county in 2007, the economy was robust. When t he recession arrived, Rieck said he used the time to estab-l ish business-friendly ordinances and visit companies a round the country as well as overseas. One of the silver linings i n the recession was that business did not rapidly expand and we used that time to make sure that Nassau and its municipalities were ready to catch the next wave of economic growth, said Rieck. I n addition to helping the county, Rieck also has partn ered with officials within the city of Fernandina Beach to i ncrease economic development. Steve gets credit for bringing people together and showing us the importance of building alliances when it comes toe conomic development, said F er n andina Beach Mayor Ed B oner R ieck spent the bulk of his 40-year career in Atlanta, managing civic organizations, including the Clayton County Chamber of Commerce. He also did private consulting in business development, strate g ic planning and finance. R ieck, who lives with his w ife in ONeil, said he is leaving his job but is staying in Nassau County Im staying here, said Rieck. Its a great place to work, live and, as Im soon going to find out, r etir e. mmaguire@fbnewsleader.com MARY MAGUIRE News-Leader S erve now. Regulate later. When it comes to food t rucks, the Nassau County Planning & Zoning Board says l ets get cooking. At the meeting July 1, the board told Growth Management Director Peter King to stop working on a food truck o rdinance and issue three permits now for service at countyp arks. Board Chair Tom Ford c alled it a pilot program. Address it in a years time and then look at regulations after that, said Ford. Board member Pat Keogh agreed. Dont start with a regulat ion, said Keogh. Observe it, and Peter gets back to us. K ing said after the meeting that the county commission will need to sign off on the plan. During board discussion, Keogh said he owns property in the District of Columbia that he rents to the owners of three f ood trucks. It works great, he said. Why are we regulating this? T here are many factors to c onsider, as the board knows. They each have a copy of t he draft ordinance King has been writing and revising for weeks. The reasons are in there. King has suggested starting w ith the definition of a food truck because thats important. S ome questions to consider. Is it self-propelled? On a traile r? Does it need a sink to sanitize equipment and wash hands? Who supplies utilities? And nailing down the definition of a food truck is only a s tart. There are many more considerations. T he eight-page proposed ordinance lists them. L ocation, permitting, signage, noise, hours of operation, waste requirements for water and trash, licensing, permits, service on private property, insurance, violations, fines, enforcement and deciding the steps it would take to revoke a p ermit once its issued. While there was brief disc ussion about garbage cans and signage, the Planning & Zoning Board did not dwell on operational details. Keogh wanted to know why t he proposed ordinance limits the number of food trucks to o ne per acre. That makes no sense at all, H e said Austin, Texas allows 8 to 10 food trucks to congregate in one place. Its kind of an exciting concept, he said. H eres what board member Jeanne Scott wanted to know a bout permits. Why limit to three? said S cott. Keogh said three is a good indication, and then made the motion to approve the threepermits plan. The motion was seconded by board member Jeff Gray. There is one person who has b een pushing the food truck agenda. Thats Mario Manganar o, who ran Pompeos Italian restaurant in downtown Fernandina Beach for 25 years before closing and retiring about three years ago. e should concentrate on parks, said Manganaro. You just want to open up at county parks? said Ford. Exactly, said Manganaro. Ford suggested a lottery for the permits. Im not gonna spend $100,000 on a lottery, said Manganaro, who implied thats how much the investment o n a food truck would cost him. K eogh suggested parking food trucks in downtown Fernandina Beach. I want to be on record that Im very, very against this, said Manganaro, who told the board that he does not want to comp ete with storefront dining establishments. F ord asked Manganaro what he would sell? What do you want? said Manganaro. Fords reply. I want to see crabs. mmaguire@fbnewsleader.com CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 5A F RIDAY J ULY 11, 2014 NEWS News-Leader BLACKROCK BAPTIST CHURCH96362 BLACKROCK ROAD YULEE, FL 32097 (904 Pastor John Kasper, Sr. blackrockbaptist@comcast.netMOVIE NIGHT, FRIDAY, JULY 25, 2014 7:00 PMREFRESHMENTS SERVED 5:30:45 PM NO ADMISSION FEE REQUIRED FOR MOVIE & REFRESHMENTS MOVIE MATINEE, SATURDAY, JULY 26, 2014 12:00 PM AND 4:00 PM REFRESHMENTS SERVED IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING AND PRIOR TO 2ND SHOWING NASSAU COUNTY has an allocation of approximately $100,000 in affordable housing dollars available through the State Housing Initiatives Partnership (SHIP PROGRAMS FUNDED include mortgage assistance with down payment/closing costs for homebuyers who do not currently own a home.

N ew climate change studies just r eleased br ought new inter est in how sea level rise will impact on our coastal cities and communities. Thats good, whatever your thoughts on this hot-button issue. Why? Because the first step in being pr epar ed is being awar e and any coastal manager or resident who knowingly ignor es a potential thr eat to the community and inter ests is not being a good steward for those interests. Saying it could happen is not necessarily saying it will but to deny even the chance of catastrophe is a fools game. The good news is that, in cities from Miami to Manhattan, Seattle to Old Saybr ook, people ar e looking at how vulnerable their community could be if seas star t to rise more rapidly. In some areas, this is not an abstract interest. For instance, some areas of Miami Beach and Honolulu flood at slightly higher than normal high tides today a pr oblem that calls for action especially when this flooding is a new development in the past decade. Other cities, particularly those with major infrastructure within the tidal or storm surge zone, are looking at the lessons of coastal catastrophes such as Sandy to see what steps could be taken today to make this infrastructure withstand whatever tomor r ow has in stor e. Given the price tags some cities could be fac ing, starting this process early is wise since its always easier to adapt over time than to make up for lost gr ound all at once when tr ying to recover from a coastal disaster. What s the key to being pr e par ed? Looking at your vulnerabili ties today so they dont become liabilities tomorrow. Look at coastal areas that are prone to trouble in normal conditions low spots that flood quickly; hot spots that er ode quickly; vital infrastructure such as roads, utilities and public ar eas that ar e most likely at risk in any stor m or weather event. What can you start doing today that will make them safer tomorrow? Look at properties that are most vulnerable or have made your repetitive-risk list thanks to multiple dam age claims. Can you plan to do something that will lower that risk, or can you work to move those structures away from future risk (or eventually remove them altogether)? Look at your community Does it have a realistic view of coastal conditions, a desire to proactively address pr oblems (coastal and other wise)? Or does it lurch from crisis to crisis, addr essing pr oblems only when they become nearly unmanageable or major threats to public safety? Smart communities anticipate disaster (as much as possible, of course rather than allowing a crisis to set the local agenda. How? By being pr epar ed. When it comes to sea level rise, pundits and policy makers may have the luxury of debating or delaying because it is abstract issue for them, but people with something at stake such as coastal residents and managers had better be pr epar ed for whatever might be ahead. That doesn t mean coastal inter ests should embrace the worst case scenario whatever this weeks iteration of that looks like. Nor does it mean those who care about the coast should let their ideologies override their interests, so their opinion about sea level rise closely follows their voting r ecor d. It means you have to keep an open mind and an adaptable attitude, to be willing to r espond to what you see and what can scientifically be proven in a way that keeps you and your community ahead of the game in preparations. And it means looking for weakness and vulnerabilities before they put people at risk, and doing the necessar y thing even if it s not politically easy. Har r y Simmons is pr esident of ASBP A, which advocates for healthy coastlines by promoting the integration of science, policies and actions that maintain, protect and enhance the coasts of America. For more information visit www.asbpa.org. S o metimes, you cant just keep t urning the other cheek. A fter reading Steve Nicklas column (July 9 cannot just sit there and let a veiled character assassination continue to haunt me. In his column Steve wrote: The marina looks and operates better than befor e. T he Westrec dockworkers are court eous and professional. He then c ontinues by adding While the mounds of silt are hardly Westrecs fault, they confound marina opera tions ... Well, lets start with the Westrec workers. I agr ee that the workers ar e cour teous and pr ofessional, but let s get the facts: four out of the seven present employees worked fort he city before Westrec took over (dockmaster Kevin Little, maintenance worker Jay W i lliams, dock hands Roger Dittbenner and Roy Pirkle). Those guys were professional and cour teous, back when I was ther e, and no of fense to the pr esent manager Joe Springer (who I think has done a great job, by the way),b ut I find it more than a bit insulting to suggest that only with the Knight in Shining Ar m or aka W estrec coming in, that out marina staff is courteous and professional. Next, why does W estr ec get a bye because the mounds of silt ar e hardly Westrecs fault, they conf ound marina oper a tions yet the city is vilified for mismanaging things with the same set of circumstances? I agree that Westrec has a steep hill against it, consider i ng the siltation i ssue, but that was a clear and known fact when they bid on the operational contract, so it is not like they inherited some problem our pr evious man a gement created. A nd what Westrec also has over t he for m er city management, is an appar e nt open checkbook, and amazing patience and support from the city commission. When we turned over control to Westrec, we were in the last days of the Great Recession, yet we still handed over ar ecently dredged facility. Yes, it was n ot perfect, and it still had high s pots, and ther e was a huge debt ser v ice (all things we had to battle during our tenure), but to say that things are so much better now than before is turning a deliberate blind eye to the reality that is the marina, and has plagued us for decades. Also remember, that the city ( that s you and me, folks) is still payi ng for the maintenance, the dredging, the employees, their FICA and federal taxes and paying Westrec $100,000 to do exactly what the city did for many years. Additionally, Westrec benefits greatly from the renovated dockhouse. Y es, they paid for the r enova t ions, and kudos to them for that, b ut that came with important conc essions fr o m the city First, when we used the building, we had a small retail area; because we also had to provide for a dockmasters office, combined with a staff breakroom, and a storage/ workshed. W estr ec was given per m ission to move the dockmasters o ffice out of the dockhouse and c ombine it with the manager s of fice and the bookkeeper s of f ice in the old dockhouse that was previously leased out to the charter boat association (which brought in $10,000 year). Additionally, the new administrative of fice by the boat ramp, w hich was used by the city (it h oused the director and bookeepers o f f ice) is now being used as a glori fied storage r o om, allowing mor e valuable retail space in the dockhouse instead of consuming it with storage. And lastly, when we asked to sell beer and wine in the dockhouse (a good r evenue generator), we were denied. So Steve is not being accurate or fair comparing apples to oranges, in any sense of the matter. But instead of trying to make Westrec look good by kicking the old dog yet again, let s take the facts a s they ar e: regardless of who is m anaging the marina, it is a silt trap a nd that is the crux of it all. As I have stated publicly ad nauseam, the water injection concept is the only game-changer in town. And regardless of the ill-informed naysayers who refer to the silt as muck, which it is not (please looku p the definition it does not cont ain filth or manure it is a naturally o ccur r ing par t of our local ecology Jeez, I wish people would know what they are talking about!). I will be glad to debate the merits of the water injection concept with anyone, and I doubt anyone canr efute my claim that the backgr ound t urbidity rationale is flawed. Just go d own to the river on a str ong west w ind and look at the water Better yet, put on a mask and jump in and go three feet below the surface (yes, I have done it), and see what you see (or what you cant see cloud mass is so concentrated that you can barely see any light, much less anything else. Mother Natur e is per for ming agi t ation dr edging and water injection a ll the time, transporting the cloud c ontinually, allowing it to settle in one spot, only to be stirred up again, re-suspended and transported elsewhere. It never ends. Isnt about time we stop playing politics, continually making hay on the favorite whipping boy (the for m er city management of the marin a), at the cost of the taxpayers? If w e want W e str ec to succeed (and believe me, I am one who does), then lets stop just patting them on the back, giving the same old excuses the silt, the silt, the silt. Instead, let s push ahead on the only eco nomically viable option that we have water injection technology. T imes a-wasting, and so ar e our t ax dollars! Coleman Langshaw is the former city marina director. Marina is a silt trap, and that is the crux Our kids were all working late today so Oma and I picked up the three grandkids from daycare and took them all to our house for supp er. My 3-year-old granddaughter, Lora Leigh, is the precocious one of the group. In fact, if y ou look up precocious in the dictionary, youll see her grinning face beside it. So, our conversation in the car on the way home went like this: Papa, wheres mommy? she inquired. Shes at work, sweetie, I replied. Oh. Papa, wheres daddy? she wanted to know. Hes at work, too, darling, I answered. Oh. But Papa, wheres Uncle Richard? she persisted. Hes working late tonight, short s top, I explained, knowing whose name was coming next. Papa? Wheres Auntie Em? she asked. Shes working in New York this week, Lora Leigh, I told her. Long pause. And then: Papa, dont you go to work? she asked. No, baby. Papas retired, I explained. And then the most candid, e mpathetic answer ever: Poor Papa. Im real tired, too. If I hadnt been driving, Id have b een bent over double on the side of the road slapping my knees and laughing myself sick. For those of you who are parents, what are the things that you look back on when your kids are grown that you remember most vividly? The little handprints in watercolor sent home from the daycare center? The singsong A BCs all the way through, including the ageless character Elliminopee? The A+ on the scie nce project that you did while your child watched? OK. Those are important milestones. But Ive got to be honest here. And yall know me well enough by now to know that I never flinch at addressing the sometimes off-color things of life. The things that give me the m ost laughs about my kids and grandkids are the verbal f oibles, gaffes, nonsequiturs and cobbled together mumbo-jumbo that oftentimes passes for answers or explanation. And chief among these sometimes embarrassingly innocent utterances that u sually fells me the hardest is a younguns observations a bout some bodily functions. A teacher friend of mine once told me that the quickest way to get a whole roomful of fourto six-year-olds to laugh in unison is for one of them to pass gas loudly. Kids love commenting on farts. If you dont believe it, do it around one and wait for the r esults. We were in the kitchen several weeks ago when I accidentally and suddenly made a s tartlingly loud sound of that sort. Papa Fartied! my precocious one screamed gleefully. Dean, our 4-year-old grandson is the more serious and stern of demeanor of the two. Shaking his finger and frowning he responded: e dont say that word, Lora Leigh. We say tooted. Well hells bells. Thats all it took. Farty! Farty! Farty! My sweet little granddaughter chanted, capering around the k itchen. And then Dean decided not to be left out. Tooty! Tooty! Tooty! he sang along. Did Papa apologize and correct his young charges? Nope. Did Papa lean on the counter and laugh himself silly? Bet your bottom dollar he did. And it isnt just my own. We were at our y oungest son and daughter-in-laws house for a cookout awhile back and one of our grandsons l ittle neighborhood friends was there. She looked like a sweet little pixie but it didnt stop her from running through the house giggling and shouting to everyone present and to her fathers great embarrassment Peee-Youuu. Diddy tooted out his butttttttt! Several weeks ago, Dean and Lora L eigh wandered into the bathroom as I was applying deodorant. Whatcha doing, Papa, they a sked, craning their necks for a better look. Putting on deodorant, I answered. Why, Papa? Because it makes your armpits smell better, I answered, bereft of a better explanation. Ewwww, Papa has stinky armpits! And that was all we heard the rest of the evening, all the way through suppertime, tubbies and bedtime stor ies. Now, if I want a great photo of my grandkids with great big laughs and grins, I dont say c heese. I just yell Stinky armpits! Try it sometime. No more frownie photos, I promise you. The late, great Art Linkletter was famous for featuring and interviewing kids on his radio and television shows. His experience with the brutally candid speech of children lead him to w rite a series of books called Kids Say the Darndest Things. A nd they do, too. We got a new one on us just the other night: Donkey balls.

SUBSCRIBETODAY! f bnewsleader.com "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands."Psalm 19: 1 Seeing images of Earth from space can induce a variety of powerful feelings, from awe over its beauty to fear over its apparent fragility. Ours is a living, breathing planet and at least so far, we haven't found any others where life occurs. Seeing pictures of the Earth from outer space is one thing; actually seeing the Earth from outer space is almost invariably a life-changing experience. Consider what various astronauts have said about their view of our planet from space. James Irwin remarked "That beautiful, warm, living object looked so fragile, so delicate, that if you touched it with a finger it would crumble and fall apart. Seeing this has to change a man, has to make a man appreciate the creation of God and the love of God." Edgar Mitchell observed "Suddenly, from behind the rim of the moon, in long, slow-motion moments of immense majesty, there emerges a sparkling blue and white jewel . rising gradually like a small pearl in a thick sea of black mystery. It takes morethan a moment to fully realize this is Earth . home." Mitchell says elsewherethat "My view of our planet was a glimpse of divinity." Finally,consider what Taylor Wang felt upon seeing Earth from space: "A Chinese tale tells of some men sent to harm a young girl who, upon seeing her beauty,become her protectors rather than her violators. That'show I felt seeing the Earth for the first time. I could not help but love and cherish her." Earth is our home and is entrusted to us for its protection.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK FRIDAY, JULY11, 2014 NEWS-LEADER/FERNANDINABEACH, FL ORIDA 10AHornet heads up 2014 all-N assau County baseballBETH JONESNe w s-LeaderIt was a successful season for the Yulee Hornets but it didn't start out that way. "We started off, got no hits and lost 8-0," Yulee High School junior second baseman Zack McCue said. "We were beat pretty bad by Sandalwood. "We went to practice the next day and Coach Dean told us not to worry about that game. We started hitting the ball a lot better. And pitching. My boy Lake (Bedell)." The Hornets rebounded to ride a seven-game winning streak. And in a rematch with Sandalwood, Yulee turned the tables on the larger school. "We can't lose to this team twice,"McCue said. "We beat them. It was a good game. That was pretty fun for me. I like the close ones." The Hornets didn't fare so well in their first encounter with McCue's former team, the West Nassau Warriors. "It was a big game for me because it was my old team and I wanted to beat them more than anything," he said. "We were winning and we blew it." But again, Yulee avenged a loss, beating West Nassau in the district championship game later in the season. McCue transferred to Y ulee last year to be closer to Florida State College at Jacksonville's Yulee campus, where he takes part in the dual enrollment program. "It's just five minutes from campus,"he said. Academics are a priority for the most valuable player on the 2014 all-Nassau County high school baseball team. "I get in trouble if I get bad grades,"the honor student said. "I haven't gotten a C in high school." McCue boasts a 4.1 Y ulee junior second baseman Zack McCue is the most valuable player on the 2014 allNassau County high school baseball team. This story was published W ednesday with the incorr ect photo.PHOTOS BY BETH JONES/NEWS-LEADER weighted grade point average and this fall will be taking one class at the high school and three college courses at FSCJ. McCue got his start in the sport at the age of four. He's pretty much always been a middle infielder. "Iused to catch a little but I don't like catching," he said. Second base seems to be his niche. He hit .323 this spring for the Hornets with a .429 on-base percentage. He scored 19 runs and knocked in 18. The speed devil recorded 24 stolen bases. "I got thrown out just one time,"McCue said. "Guess what team did it? West Nassau. The one team I didn't want to get thrown out by." McCue has one goal for his senior season at Yulee. "Iwant to win state,"he said. "We're at workouts every day not because it's fun." Coach Mark Dean will be happy to take that ride with his second baseman. "Zack McCue is a highcharacter individual,"Dean said. "He has an unbelievable work ethic and has his life priorities set. "This season for Zack was impressive; he was the table setter. Zack led most of the offensive categories for Yulee this past year. He has great baseball instincts and a strong desire to win. He was a key component to this year's success. "Zack McCue has earned all that comes his way. I'm extremely proud of him." McCue is the son of Mike and Mandy McCue of Callahan. The 2014 all-Nassau County high school baseball team includes: Zack McCue, junior second baseman, Yulee.

S o the couple began searching for p r operties where they could open t heir own theater with an emphasis on musical shows and embracing anyone and ever y one with a genuine inter e st in being on stage or working behind the scenes. They finally landed on the former Midtown bar, with its distinctiveo ctagonal shape. They liked the locat ion in a commer cial district and the a mple parking.

MUSIC NOTES Fill in the squares so that ea ch r o w, column and 3-by-3 box c ontain the numbers 1 thr ough 9 S olution will appear in the Wednesday B-section. Wednesday, July 9 Solution O UTAND A BOUT of us have been in choirs, but for half of us it is the first time we have been in a musical. Now we all have a greater appreciation for actors. Director Geoffrey King feels that we are ver y for tunate to have all of this musical and choreographic talent. I hope that as the months and years go by that partly, because of the show age spectr um wer e developing a pool of talent that will matur e and go from being young ingenues to teenagers. That is the journey Sophia Rose Morris has taken: At 10 she played the r ole of Brigitta, and this is her second time playing Maria. Morris has found that the most fun is working with the kids and seeing how they grow their characters, starting at the first day of rehearsal. Children and adults who see the show and go away with a bit of the theater bug can be assured that Amelia Musical Playhouse plans to pr oduce mor e pr oductions with lar ge casts and young singers in the futur e. As Mary Williams puts it, the more voices, the better . there, said Gregg everything had to be brought up to current code. Then there was t he trash, and the wax. The wax on the floors was so thick! Jill recalled, holding her thumb and index finger three inches apart to indicate just how bad. e spent the first few months cleaning and hauling out trash kegs that were s till half-full, bottles of liquor, garbage, she said. Next they removed walls, pulled up carpet, renovated bathrooms, converted a utility closet into the box office, painted, decorated, built a stage and installed seating to transformt he space into a theater. My husband can fix anything he can build something out of stuff he finds in the Dumpster, said Jill.W orking 24/7, we had a lot of help from a lot of volunt eers, she said. Now people walk in and s ay, I didnt realize it was so nice, said Gregg. We wanted it to be welcoming, not austere. In fact the space is elegant, fresh and fun, including a piano bar that opens to reveal a hidden trove of b ottles inside. Each show feat ures free refreshments and sangria, with donations welcome, and works by local ar tists grace the walls. Its become a community, said Jill. We have kids working for minimum wagea djusting their schedules to b e in a show. We have a large m ilitary presence and the talent that walks in from that is amazing. Added Gr egg, We have such a mix of socio-economic backgrounds and ages and they all call each other by their first names, fr om r etired judges to the tax coll ector to 20-something wait ers. Were all in here for the purpose of a common goal. Even though she and Gregg are funding this venture, we listen to everyone we don t need to have meet ings, said Jill, who eschews t he board of directors model i n favor of a fr ee-flowing, cr e ative back and forth. We are open to peoples ideas. If you think youve got something that will float, bring it. That means multiple shows ar e in r ehearsal at any time, and everyone makes it w ork, she said. The general p lan is four big productions a y ear four r evues and then smaller variety shows in between. Currently the schedule is booked through this time next year ere on a learning curve were finding out what we can and cannot do, said Jill, who has plans more cutting edge entertainment as well. Its been extremely time consuming. We havent walked on the beach in so long, but we figur ed it would take a year or two, added Gregg. That s saying something for a couple with seven children between them. Only one remains at home fulltime, but the kids and their friends still frequent the duplex Gr egg and Jill con verted into a single-family home since moving her e fr om the Keys. No doubt thats been good training for the rigors and challenges of theater especially the highly collaborative venture the couple envisions. Our str ong point is our adaptability and we listen to ever yone, said Jill. People have been so generous. Its my job to pick up the garbage and clean the toilets, but people dive right in, she said, her eyes wide with amazement. She cr edits much of that to the goodwill her husband has cr eated, noting, Gregg has all these skills and he does things for people all the time. Before she can finish, Gr egg begins a laundr y list of Jills generosity and good works, but she quickly cuts him of f and deflects the praise. Im not being shy I do work r eally har d, but ever y one else does too, said Jill. e couldnt do this without our volunteers. sperry@fbnewsleader.com THEATER Continued from 1B PLAY Continued from 1B We listen to everyone we dont need to have meetings. ...

Nowadays its w here my dad lives. After suffering a massive stroke some 12 years ago, h e eventually landed there in the V.A. nursing home. Every couple of w eeks my mom and I load up the van and head that way to take him out to lunch. His being there has been a bittersweet thing. Bitter because I hate not having him closer; sweet because I m glad hes still alive. They said at best hed only last three years. But G od! Though its hard having to watch him do life from a bed and a w heelchair, even there God has given us many wonderful times together. Every day is a gift. Once we got over the initial grief of his stroke, and decided to move forward with what we had, things got better. Since then, every step has brought a new a ppreciation for life and for each other not to mention the faithfulness of G od who turns bitter things into sweet. One unexpected blessing has been t he three hours of driving back and f orth to Lake City with my mom. Ive r eally gotten to know a lot about her that somehow I had missed while growing up. Take for instance her love for plants. Though I knew she spent her early years on a farm, her deep appreciation for plants was something I hadn t fully understood. Thanks to Maxwell all that changed. Maxwell y ou might ask. Yes, Maxwell. Maxwell is the plant man on the side o f Hwy. 90 not far from the V.A. nursing home. Right there in the middle of what seems like nowhere, Maxwell has beautiful plants lining the roadway. Every time we pass by h is house, my mom tells me to slow down. The fact that the plants are for s ale sometimes makes the slow down a complete stop. On one particu lar day, unknowingly, Maxwell handed me a simple reminder that Ill never forget. Theres three things ya gotta pay attention to, he said in a voice equal to the pace of the town where he lived. The soil, the fertilizer and the bugs. Though he continued to e xplain himself, my mind drifted somewhere else. W here we are planted, what we are fed and how we deal with the s tuff that comes to eat up our bugs are by far some of lifes most important issues. To ignore them, is to despise our God given potential. On the topic of good soil, and w here we put down our roots, the Bible has this to say: They that are p lanted in the house of the Lord; they shall flourish in the courts of o ur God. (Psalm 92:13 Along the same line, when it comes to our need for fertilizer, the apostle Peter puts it like this: Desire Gods pure word as newborn babies desire milk; then you will grow in your salvation. (1Peter 2:2 As far as bugs are concerned to m e they represent the things that are constantly eating at us, often in the r ealm of our thoughts its clear we are the ones who have to pull them o ff. And we tear down every proud idea that raises itself against the knowledge of God. We also capture every thought and make it give up and obey Christ. (2Corinthians 1 0:5) In the end, Maxwell the plant m an has a bigger garden than Im sure he realizes. Not only has he prov ided some beautiful plants for my mom and our family, but has helped me stay focused on the stuff that matters most. Robert L.
