Robin C. Lentz, a Fer nandina Beach educator and c ommunity volunteer has announced plans to seek elec t ion to the Fernandina Beach City Commission, Group 3 The incumbent in that seat, Sarah Pelican, has filed for reelection. Other candidates may file before the Aug. 8 deadline. The city election is Nov. 4. Lentz said her platform consists of three major objectives: Ensur e that gover nment will be good stew a r ds of taxpayer money, be efficient, achieve d esired results, follow the law and operate in a b usiness-like manner Think ahead, plan carefully and address long-term budget issues instead of short-term issues. Focus on downtown waterfront and South Eighth Street improvements without raising taxes. I will work to pr otect our quality of life and pr eserve all those things that make our community a n attractive place to live, and do so economically, said L entz in a press release. In order to fund waterfront improvements, there are ways to work with city staf f to increase revenue without incr easing taxes, she said. For example, we can pursue d evelopment within the CRA to attract investors. Along w ith waterfront improvements, we need to create an e nvir o nment that encourages businesses and local gov ernment to cooperate in generating a more attractive Eighth Street corridor. It will aid in positive growth. e need to bring our government in line with the realities that businesses and families face every day. Spending plans must depend on the amount of money that is available. Our elected of ficials ar e s tewar ds of that money and therefore must e nsure strict accountability. Before allocating f unds, a thor o ugh understanding of what the money is being used for is required and that appropriate contracts and agreements are signed. A resident of Nassau County since 2002, Lentz has lived in Fernandina Beach for nine years. She ear ned a bachelor s degree from Georgia State University in 2002 and moved to N assau County with her husband, Toby, who was fulfilli ng his commitment to the U.S. Navy at Naval Submarine Local educator Robin Lentz see ks city c ommission seat Rules of the Trail: No horse, golf cart ...

The city also will pursue a claim against developers for failing roads in a relatively new subdivision. Accor ding to the complaint received Tuesday, a representative of the Citizens A wareness Foundation Inc. asked a city marina employee for a slip rental agreement related to a particular vessel docked at the cityowned Fernandina Harbor Marina. The complaint further states the employee acknowledged the existence of the r ental agr eement, but said the plaintiff would have to make a request for the paper work in writing to the City Clerk.

Mar ys River channel was dr edged f or Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Ga. The beach is performing way better than predicted by the Army Corps of Engineers, because the Navy is putting sand on the nor th beach, Olsen said Wednesday.

The Navy has been incredible with respect to honoring i ts agreement irrespective of costs, Olsen said. Olsen also noted county beaches at mid-island havent needed any re-sanding, and are actually growing. Some areas, in fact, are significantly better than they were in the s and s, Olsen said. The beaches havent eroded enough for the Corps toc ome in and do what they need to do, Olsen said. We meet w ith the Corps almost monthly, and they totally agree. ... Thank goodness for the Navy. Commissioners approved a $30,000 payment at their meeti ng Tuesday for a task order for Olsen Associates to prepare a local funding request to the Florida Department of E nvironmental Protection for beach management projects, and to continue to be liaison with city staff, the U.S. Navy a nd U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. A ccording to Olsen, federal funding pays for 79.1 percent o f the beach renourishment cost, the state pays for 46.44 percent and the city and county split the remaining 11.2 percent. T he city has had a professional services agreement for O lsen Associates to perform beach management services f or the past 15 years. adaughtry@fbnewsleader.com suit byparties who are preyi ng on the technicalities of a statute. The city employee violated Section 119.07 of the Florida Statutes, according to the complaint, because, among other allegations, the requested document is a public record that is readily accessible to D efendant, and because future harm will occur when ... other members of the public make public records requests in the future. The complaint also alleges an unreasonable and therefore unlawful withholding of public records as contemplated by Floridas Public Records Law. R elief requested by the plaint iff includes a declaration by the c ity that the failure to provide t he public records was uncons titutional and unlawful. T he complaint also asks for easonable attorneys fees, costs and expenses incurred in t his action, plus further relief as the Court deems proper. Bach also was directed by city commissioners Tuesday to pursue a claim against developers of Isle de Mai subdivision for costs to reconstruct r oads that are prematurely failing due to being designed andc onstructed in a negligent manner. Cost to reconstruct the r oads Spanish Way East and S panish Way West is estimate d to be up to $200,000. According to a city document, staf f believes engineers, contractors and the developers of the subdivision are respon-s ible for the prematurely failing roads, which were cons tructed along with the subdivision. It turns out the groundwater is higher than the roads were designed for, Bach said. The city accepted the roads based on the information we had ... and will spend the money to replace the road one way or a nother. Because the subdivision was c onstructed 10 years ago, Bach said, the statute of limitations is expiring this year, requiring t he city to file the complaint by A ug. 4. We have to move quickly to figure out which engineers the city r e lied on and who submitted the plat in 2004, Bach said. Were doing a lot of workf iguring out just what we want to allege. We know we have seve ral developers. adaughtry@fbnewsleader.com Base Kings Bay, Ga.

The average cost of a new car last month was over $32,000. The average used c ar is now about half that, in the $16,000 range. With t hose price points as a backdrop, we can look at what to e xpect to buy for different dollar amounts. This idea emerged this week because there are two cases where people need vehicles that are i n our circle. I am never seeking to be a mused at a customers expense, but it occasionallyh appens. The request for an economical, dependable, good mileage car in the $3,000 range is just a request without a match. For the purpose of discussion, we will say the objective is the lowe st cost to achieve an outcome in a used vehicle. Thet hree numbers that I arbitrarily choose are $5,000, $10,000 and $15,000. The $5,000 number is an amount that gives you a chance to buy decent transportat ion. The odds are t hat a vehicle that c ommands less than 5K will be a huge risk to those w ho can afford it l east. You will get a l ot more vehicle by purchasing a car than an SUV or pick-up. You need to double that amount for a pick-up. Check these older vehicles in this price range out with a real mechanic, not Uncle B ernie. Many are sold privately with no guarantees. F or the young buyer, those with maximum budget constraints or those simply not wanting much outgo, set $5,000 as a minimum budget, and service the car regularly where they do a vehicle inspection each time. Try to i mmediately plan for a schedule to update the vehicle w ithin 24 months. The $10,000 budget would l ogically seem to take you to a whole new level, and it does in some ways. For that price, a buyer can get a very nice, good mileage (15,000 a y ear average) fourto sevenyear-old vehicle. Again, cars a re more bang for the buck than trucks. Many 10K carsw ill be out of warranty, but more qualify for a service contract, which is rare on 5K vehicles. Same advice on checking them out. Most dealers will share the reconditioning repair order and p ass on what has been done to the vehicle. Let youri nstincts tell you if this is adequate. Expect to get three or four years out of a 10K car. If you are shopping for a vehicle for five or more years of service, target at least $15,000. This is half the new car average, and will achieve a lot for the money. A good percentage of these vehicles w ill have factory warranty remaining and qualify for l ower cost service contracts. An outlay of 15K to 20K is a sweet spot to get a really nice vehicle and benefit from the depreciation someone else r ealized. As I have previously ment ioned, 40 million used cars are sold in the U.S. eachy ear, as compared to 16 million new ones. Too little focus goes into used vehicle news, which I have to remind myself of. Hope these perspectives are helpful in some way. Have a good week.

T he campers stayed at the Florida State campus and utilized the Florida State Capitol building to hold mock congressional sessions. Senior 4-Hers came to together to develop their skills d ebating, analyzing legislation and speaking publicly as they a re making new friends and having a whole lot of fun, said UF/IFAS Nassau County Extension Agent Margaret Johnson. At this civic education event, youth write bills and then a ct as lobbyists, representatives or senators to pass the bills t hrough committee and then present and debate them on the C apitol House or Senate floor. They have the opportunity to debate issues and experience the legislative process hands on while having a great time with their friends! Legislature camp is traditionally open to senior 4-Hers ages 13 to 18. S erving as a representative or senator, Trevis Wallace of Yulee High School and Kelly Hygema of West Nassau County High School were committee members who sponsored bills individually or with a partner. LEG is a five-day camp with four days of educational and fun r ecreational activities. Campers make friends from all over F lorida.

MARY PITCHER Community Relations, Barnabas Barnabas has played a significant role in providing health car e to uninsured adults in N assau County for more than n ine years. Starting with the S amaritan Clinic in 2005, loweri ncome adults who had an urgent health care problem could see a volunteer doctor at no cost to them. Many patients sought care for oral health problems, i.e., infections and severe gum disease, which c aused other health problems. A s a result, Barnabas also b egan providing dental care to lower-income adults who could not afford to see a dentist. Additionally the majority of patients seeking medical care were identified as having a mental health pr oblem, such a s depression, anxiety or other c onditions. R ecognizing that there is a strong relationship between physical, oral and emotional health, Bar nabas r e cently adopted a different approach to addressing the health needs of its patients. T he agency now of fers pri m ary and preventative medical c are, along with dental care, chronic disease management, nutrition education, mental health and substance abuse counseling and vision and hearing scr eenings at its new loca tion at 1303 Jasmine St. in F er nandina Beach. T he Barnabas Food Pantry h as expanded as well, allowing the agency to provide fresh and fr o zen foods as well as of f er i ng cooking classes through the Cooking Matters prog ram, which demonstrates ways to prepare healthy, nutritious meals on a limited budget. This holistic or compreh ensive approach enables B arnabas to help its patients a nd clients achieve overall good health and well-being. One significant factor in ones overall health is mental or emotional well-being. Accor ding to Bar nabas Executive Dir ector Wanda L anier, the overwhelming m ajority of people who walk t hrough our doors seeking help with medical or dental care, rent or utility payments, food or other services are under a significant amount of str ess. This str ess is often related to trying to m ake financial ends meet and t heir poor health; many ar e also d ealing with additional demands of caring for children or aging parents. It is a vicious cycle that we are trying to help them break by providing mental health ser vices onsite through a partnership with Star ting Point Behavioral H ealth. O ne r e cent example of how t his comprehensive approach works is the services provided t o a 50-year-old woman with Parkinsons disease. The Barnabas medical staff connected her with physical therapy and an eye screening to h elp with her physical sympt oms. She was also connected t o the mental health counselor who will help her deal with the depression brought on by her disease. And she is currently participating in the Cooking Matters class to help her impr ove her eating habits, w hich will directly affect her o verall health. B arnabas expansion of its health, food and crisis assistance services attempts to keep pace with the growing need. Almost one out of five people in Fer nandina Beach live at or below the federal poverty l evel. Over the past 12 months, B ar nabas experienced a 50 p ercent increase in food provided to more than 14,000 people in Nassau County. People who are lower income or food insecure tend to eat inexpensive foods that are often less nutritious and laden with sugar fat and car b ohydrates. These eating h abits ar e par ticularly har mful t o people who suffer from chr o nic diseases such as diabetes, hyper tension and heart disease. How can you help be par t of the solution? Donate healthy non-perishable food items to t he Barnabas Food Pantry such a s peanut butter, dry beans, c anned tuna, salmon or chick en, low-sodium canned soups and vegetables and whole grains, i.e., oatmeal and rice. Donate your gently used items such as clothing, home furnishings, home dcor and linens to the New To You resale store, which financially suppor ts other Bar nabas programs. And consider making a financial donation or volunteer your time to help our neighbors in need.

Federal law states, Whoever k nowingly and willfully deposits any mailable matter such as statements of accounts, circulars, sale bills, or otherlike matter,on which no postage has been paid, in any letter box established, approved, or accepted bythe Postal Service for the receipt or delivery of mail matter on any mail route with the intent to avoid payment of lawful postage thereon, shall for each offence be fined underthis title. Postal inspectors say itsaviolation of federal law to intentionally circumvent paying postage in order to realize personal gain. The certified letters sent to violators f rom the Fernandina Beach post office note the fine could be in excess of $5,000. The post office charges mail advertisers $200 for an application fee, $200 for a permit fee and 27 cents per piece of mail delivered. Fernandina Beach has 17,052 possible deliveries including post office boxes and mailboxes. The certified letter was sent to several local restaurants, lawn care and pest control services and other businesses that were suspected of putting advertising circulars in mailboxes without paying postage for them. NEWS-LEADER PUBLIC SERVICE MESSGE As a community surrounded by water, we enjoy the pleasures and fun of water activities. Particularly during t he summer. But with those pleasures come true risks anda dded responsibilities as adults caring for children. F lorida loses more children under age five to drowning than any other state. Every year, about 300 toddlers drown in residential s wimming pools. Overall, more than 800 children ages1 4 and under die from drowning, and more than 4,000 go to t he emergency room after near-drowning incidents. The lure and attraction of sparkling water can inspire children to be incredibly crea tive in finding ways to get to the water. Young childrenh ave no understanding of the dangers and no sense of the risk involved in t heir playful explorationo f a pond, lake or s tream. Adults must be vigilant in their efforts to p revent a childs deathf rom drowning. T o keep your children safe around pools and open bodies of water, give kids your undivided attention. There is simply no substitute for active, a ttentive supervision. If children are near water, then theys hould be the only thing on your mind. This is the time to avoid distractions of any kind. When toddlers are in or around water, an adult should b e within arms reach to provide active supervision E ducate your kids about water safety. From the first t ime your kids play in the water, teach them to never go near or in water without an adult present. Teach your children how t o tread water, float and stay by the shore or the shallowe nd of the pool. Enroll your children in s wimming lessons when you feel they are ready. We are fortunate here in Nassau County to have several community resources prov iding swimming lessons that can save childrens lives. S wim lessons are available from the City of Fernandina Beach Parks and Recreation Department at the Atlantic Recreation Center and the Martin Luther King, Jr.R ecreation Center. Call 3103358 for details.The city spons ors Swim Fernandina, a program offering free swim lessons to children in lowincome Nassau County families. The lessons are held at the MLK, Jr. pool.

For eligibility and availability information, call (904 265-1775. Whether you go swimming in a backyard pool, a lake or the beach, teach your children to always swim with an adult. Older, more experienced s wimmers should always swim with a partner. The buddy system is a valuable preventive measure that helps protect children in many ways, including water safety. A t the beach, stay near a lifeguard for added protection. B y educating children, staying attentive around water a nd never leaving a child unattended around water, we can keep children safe while they enjoy water fun.

H H olidays are usually the t oughest part of a Peace Corps volunteers servi ce. Theyre when we get homesick, when we reminisce, when we crave traditions. Today happens to be one of my very favorite holidays, and today I a m absolutely homesick, Im reminiscing on past celebrations andI m craving the beach, fireworks, hot dogs and hamburgers on the g rill and cold ones in the cooler. But on this particular day, Im also feeling extremely proud. Many of us volunteers say we had no idea how patriotic we were until we left America. I guess its similar to the saying, You never k now what you have until its gone. Now that weve been d ropped into an environment so different from our own, we I have learned to appreciate all that comes from being a citizen of the good ole US of A. Theres comfort things like insulation, high speed Internet a nd a variety of foods and beers. But theres also heavier things. T heres our education system, our diversity, our work ethic. Theres our job opportunities, our efficien-c y, our democracy. Theres our a ccessibility, our history and theres our freedom. Our freedom of speech, of expression, of religion. Our freedom to be who we want to be and our freedom to dot he things that we want to do. Its this and so much more that m akes a person like me, on the o ther side of the world, jump at a ny opportunity to scream that I am American. It propels us volunteers to sing loudly any patriotic songs we can think of on a 17hour bus ride. Its what makes my favorite article of clothing my USA flag bandana. Its what we m ean when we high-five and say America after anything r emotely r elated. Peace Corps goal two states, o help promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served. This has easily been one of my favorite par ts about my service. I absolutely love getting to talk about America and some of theq uestions ar e quite enter taining. Im most often asked if I personally know Beyonc or Justin Bieber, or if I can bring a shirt back for the stranger whose name I dont know but just happen to be sitting next to on a combi. But I also get to explain the simple brilliance ofa grilled cheese sandwich, that t her s mor e to the U.S. than New York or California, what its like to wake up on the beach, how awesome American football is, how it only snows in some parts of the countr y but making a snowman is super fun and how country music makes you feel good all over. And even mor e impor tantly I ve gotten the chance to talk about equality equal rights and women political leaders. I get to talk about our ban of corporal punishment and scholarships for academic achievers. I get to talk about opportunity. And, for the most part, people are interested, even if Ive never been to President Obamas house for dinner and even if I dont know Lil Waynes favorite color. So yes, today I miss my gr eat country, more than usual. But I am also so pr oud that I get the chance to r epr esent it each and every day. Im so honored that I was given an opportunity to serve our country and so incredibly grateful for all the men and women who made the United States what it is today Land of the free and home of the brave. So happy bir thday America. Ther e aint no doubt I love this land, God bless the USA. Kim Kelly is a 22-year-old serving in the Peace Corps in Botswana, Africa.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE G G o o l l f f c c o o u u r r s s e e f f a a c c t t s s I first read Steve Nicklass Market Place article (July 9 with dismay. Then angst. Then a bit of anger. And finally I sat back, just plain sad. I and others had given so much for this? I am one of the people who spent months upon months researching and then working the details for the RFP (Request for Pr oposals) and then the contract when we, the Golf Course Evaluation Committee, were searching for the best way to manage the golf course and the best management company to join with to do the job. The members of that committee came from a broad variety of professional backgrounds. The one trait we all shar ed was an understanding of golf courses and the issues involved. Personally, I possess a 30-year backgr ound in technical pr o gram management and strategic planning for NASA. RFP design was my baby, and I have served on too many selection committees to mention at the multimillion-dollar levels. I know research. I know contracts. I know RFPs and what makes a good RFP and what makes a good contract. I also know quite a bit about golf course architectur e and constr uction. Shor tly befor e moving to Fer nandina Beach, I managed the r eno vation of an 18-hole golf course and then oversaw its operation. I admit that this is the first time in my life that I have seen work that I gave my all to belittled by a man who didnt even bother to find out what he was talking about. Regarding those performance requirements that Mr. Nicklas claims are lacking? Give me a break. The contract with Casper includes by refer ence the RFP and the Casper pr oposal in response to that RFP. This inclusion is clearly stated in the contract (management agreement). Ther e ar e many per for mance requirements listed in these documents. The Casper proposal and the contract can easily be found on the city s website. The RFP itself which contains many detailed requirements is no longer on the website, but can still be easily obtained from the City Clerk s of fice. The fact that the city has not cho sen to implement and enforce these requirements has to be placed exactly wher e it belongs at the feet of the city Manager Mr Nicklas and the News-Leader editor should be talking to Mr. Ger rity if they have any questions in this regard. And where are the city commissioners? Do they have any questions, or are they just happy that one of their own, Commissioner (Charles Corbett, has inser ted himself into the golf course chain of command. Among that group, there exists an abysmal lack of understanding about golf, golf courses and golf course management. Unfortunate. Mr. Nicklas speaks of the lavish contract that Casper enjoys. It is a management contract, folks, for which they are paid $84,000 annually. No more and no less. And with that contract comes a lot of administrative and marketing sup port to the city at no additional cost. All of this is clearly spelled out in the contractual documents. All r evenues and expenses belong to the city Casper performs the day-to-day management. I wish people would read those documents before mischaracterizing the contents. That includes the city manager and the city commissioners, who I am afraid do not understand nor bother to ask the right questions of the right people. Mr. Nicklas also claims that the city is penalized monetarily if it backs out early This is pur e fabrication. See my problem with his assertions? They ar e included in a regular column printed in a local paper, so why wouldnt readers assume his words are based on diligent research and founded in truth? Unfortunately, I personally have found too much of what Mr Nicklas writes to be based on unsubstantiated assertions pulled out of thin air In the futur e, I hope that you, sir as editor provide better guidance to Mr. Nicklas about the standar ds he should adhere to. There should be some boundaries regarding what he writes. ruth and integrity are cited in your papers mission statement. Perhaps you could remind Mr Nicklas of those wor ds along with the famous quote attributed to Daniel Patrick Moynihan: Ever yone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts. Jim Powers Fernandina Beach A A m m e e r r i i c c a a , t t h h e e m m o o v v i i e e America, the movie, written and pr oduced by Dinesh Desouza, is a must see! It s hear t-wr enching, brilliant, hear twarmingly patriotic and tr uthful. So truthful, in fact, that movie theater managers had ordered the limiting of viewing times to 10:15 9:55 and 10:05 at all Jacksonville area theaters. This did not go on for long because of movie goers complaints. Who wants to go to a movie, ideally, late at night? The regular movie times, i.e., 1:30, 4:15, 7:25 and 10:15, have since been r estored. Our local Island 7 has, so far, not shown America at all. This follows Costcos owner, a huge financial suppor ter of Obama, or dering that all copies of Dinesh Desouzas book, America, be pulled of f the Costco shelves all ar ound the countr y Again, public outcries have caused the books to be put back on the Costco store shelves. Do you wonder why all the pr otests of America? See the movie and you wont wonder anymore.

C OMMUNITY CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK F R IDAY J U LY 1 8, 2014 / N E WS L E ADER 8 A Dont let fear and worry take away joy W e should be convinced that n othing can ever separate us from Gods love. Deathc ant, life cant, the angels cant and demons cant. Our fears for t oday, our worries about tomorrow and even the powers of hell cant keep Gods love away. Sometimes we may meet people who say, God doesnt love me anymore, and we may be tempted to respond, ou are a liar. M aybe what they mean is, if I were God, I would not love me because of w hat I have done. That is probably the very reason that a six-year-old girl so truthfully said, God is God and no one else can be Him. The only thing that can convince people that God loves them is His word. The most convincing evidence of Gods l ove is that he sent Jesus to the cross to fully accomplish the requirement of the l aw for us. Then what robs people of being convinced of Gods love? The m ost common thieves of the knowledge of H is love are fears of today and worries of t omorrow. If God asks someone to name the two days of the week that begin with the letter T, a fter a couple of seconds they would reply, t oday and tomorrow. We might smile, but today and tomorrow are the days were talking about. It is sad that so many of Gods people allow todays fears and tomorrows worries tob lock out their enjoyment of todays successes and tomorrows potential. When t hey allow fear and worry to take their joy away, they lose sight of Gods love for them. If we have rebelled or behaved in a way that is displeasing to God, repent. T hen reject all fears that come your way. Refuse to allow concerns for tomorrow t o rob us of our joy today. Todays fears and tomorrows worries will only make u s doubt Gods love for us, and that is an expense we cant afford. Ask the Holy Ghost to help us and He will. The family of the late Brenda E. Henry would like to thank you, their f amily and friends, for your expressions of sympathy which have done so much t o strengthen their family. May God richly bless each of you.

SUBSCRIBETODAY! fbnewsleader.com Work hard & cheerfully at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.Colossians 3:23 We all know that work can sometimes bemindnumbingly boring, difficult to the point of frustration, and stifling to the soul But, it can also be exciting, provide a sense of accomplishment, and allow us to serve God by serving our fellow man. So, how do we ensure that we have more of the latter and less of the former? There is considerable evidence that what makes workers happy is a sense of agency, the sense that they are effective at what they are doing and that it is worthwhile work. What this really boils down to is doing something that you are good at. So, if you're in a job or career that you don't feel particularly suited to, you're probably not feeling great about your work. In that case, you should probably either retrain for a different job or work on the skills that will make you more effective in your current job. God has given all of us specific talents, and if we can incorporate those into our work we arebound to be happier and more effective. But, even if you aren't particularly good at what you do or happy where you work, do your best to put on a happy face each day at work. Sometimes happiness at work, like happiness in life, is just a choice that we make.

FBHS student Envisions the future F reshman Scott Wardrop of F ernandina Beach High School was one o f 196 outstanding students fr o m across t he nation, and one of 11 from Florida, to take part in a unique leadership development experience in W a shington, D.C. this summer. The National Young Leaders Conference: Skills in Leadership forC hange, an Envision program, serves as a living classroom for empowering y oung scholars to emer g e as influential v oices in their community, state and even at the national level. The conference was held June 28 to July 5. This seven-day conference helps scholars build leadership skills and strategies that are critical for leaders int he 21st century, said Marguerite R egan, Ph.D., the dean of academic a f f airs for the National Y oung Leaders Conference. At the program, students learned skills and the art of standing out fr om the cr o wd in any pr o fession, including networking, social media man agement, communication, conflict resolution and self-promotion. A highlight of the program was the c hance to apply leadership skills to s er v ice in The Envision Initiative: Igniting Community Change, a social advocacy project that students undertook while attending the confer ence. W ar drop met with members of Congr e ss on Capitol Hill, took part in an e xclusive pr e ss panel with national news reporters and explored future careers in myriad public ser v ice fields: elected office, intelligence, national security, journalism, public policy, lobbying, campaign management and public relations. He met with Sen. Bill Nelsons legal a dvisor, David Grittess and Sen. Marco R ubios assistant and also attended a t alk with for m er Rep. Jim Colby of A rizona on the floor of the House. He was able to talk to members of the National Pr e ss Club with members of his team. For Wardrops final project, with his team of five students, they brain-s tormed, created and implemented a p lan to help fund education for homel ess childr e n in South Florida who do n ot receive an education as they have no address, inoculations or means to attend school. Scott s group competed with 10 groups and rated first place, winning a $500 grant for the project to educate homeless children in readinga nd writing, and sought further funding f or this worthy project so that it will cont inue. The National Young Leaders Conference is part of the Envision family of pr ograms (www envisionexperi ence.com), which enables students of all ages to explore their interests and gain learning experiences beyond thec lassroom. Since 1985, Envision prog rams have served more than 800,000 s tudents in mor e than 145 countries, with programs designed to help students develop the leadership, scholarship and car eer skills needed to succeed in today s competitive college and car e er landscape.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK FRIDAY, JULY18, 2014 NEWS-LEADER/FERNANDINABEACH, FL ORIDA 10A The Jacksonville Axemen have partnered with Money Pages Magazine to host an official party to give away four pairs of tickets to the Carrie Underwood concert and Fulham Soccer video board unveiling event July 26 at EverBank Field. The party will be hosted Sunday at Time Out Sports Grill, 13799 Beach Blvd., from 48 p.m. Also win a four pack of tickets to the VIP suite with all food and beverages included for the Aug. 2 USA Rugby League Southern Conference Championship Game at UNF. Visit www.jaxaxe.com. The Fernandina Beach High School girls basketball teams traveled to Camden County High School Monday night for their final tuneup of the summer. The junior varsity girls kicked things off, beating Camden 38-36. The Lady Pirates led at halftime by nine points and withstood a late flurry by the Lady Wildcats to edge out the victory and exact revenge for a loss at FBHS a month earlier. The second game of the night featured two strong varsity teams. Fernandina has no recent memory of ever beating Camden on the basketball court for girls basketball. They fell short a month earlier at home by eight points but this time found a way as they beat the Lady Wildcats 32-25. "The entire team was clicking and working very hard defensively. We struggled a bit on offense but we did not make silly turnovers and kept control under the pressure to win the game," Coach Jacob Nantz said. Leading the victory with 10 points was Shanaya Thompson. Thompson (or Naya, as her team calls her), hit a late three that iced the game and held off a late rally by Camden. Also with a great game was Julie Fournier, with four points. "This was the best game we have had from Julie,"Coach Nantz said. "Not offensively but having control of the game, the team and having incredible decision making as a guard. She has made great strides in this area and she did everything I asked her to do throughout the game. She was also very intense on defense, which is why we won the game. "If the whole team continues to follow my lead and give this kind of effort, we are going to be very hard for anyone to beat."L ady Pirates avenge loss to Camden B ASKETBALL SPORTS SHORTSB B a a s s k k e e t t b b a a l l l l t t r r a a i i n n i i n n g gGenetic Potential Academy will host process basketball training, a cutting-edge ball handling clinic and offensive clinic, arming players with innovative drills, concepts and footwork they never experienced before.

T o them, I was riding a worn-out 1975 Honda motorcycle that needed e ngine work. To me, the sound was much better. I had learned to hear it in spite of how things really were. Ringing in my helmet, my motorcycle sounded as impressive as all the o ther bikes in the race. Looking back, that sound is what kept me g oing. As a kid, I loved motorcycles e specially dirt bikes. The only problem was, I couldnt afford a nice one. Somehow, delivering newspapers and cutting grass never put me in the same class as my rather affluent n eighbors. It was years before I could even buy one of their leftover, w orn-out ones. Just the same, the one I did have served me better than I realized. Although watching my f riends come whizzing by me in a c loud of dirt was never fun; and, e ventually, my lack of good equipment turned into an unexpected blessing. I ll never forget the day when K enny Smith, one of my neighborh ood motocross heroes, stood on the sideline, cheering me on with two thumbs up as I plowed through a c orner and passed by a group of other riders. Even I was in shock. T he fact that I was still on my clunker and they were riding much newer a nd more powerful motorcycles m ade my transformation all the more impressive. It wasnt until y ears later that I figured out how the changed occurred. The i nsight continues to speak to me even now. Learning to ride my poor-handling clunker to the best of my ability had actually driven my skill level t o a whole new place. Thats right having to hang on to that heavy, p oor-handling, awkward motorcycle eventually made me a really good r ider. While all the other guys were riding with their cushy suspension and powerful engines, I was wrestling for dear life just to keep from crashing. In the end, I got s tronger and more skilled. By the time I actually was able to purchase a nicer, more competitive motorcycle, the difference was amazing. W ithout question, having to make d o with little made me better in the end. B y now, I trust you see the application. In so many places and in so m any ways, being forced to put up with things we wish were different ultimately; but, if we hang in there, we will draw out our real potential. I cant tell you how many times Ive l ooked back and thanked God for the way tough situations have w orked great things into my life. Though it usually isnt much fun w hile youre going through it, real change is right around the corner. Our job is to just hang on. Like the boy in the movie The Karate Kid, little did he know how all the seemi ngly bad stuff he had to endure was actually preparing him for great. Im c onvinced the same thing is true with us. I n the Psalms, King David said it w ell when he confessed, You have enlarged me when I was in distress. ( Psalm 4:1) Again, the apostle Paul, speaking out of his own experience, e choes the same thing: Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces h ope, and hope does not put us to shame, because Gods love has been p oured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to u s. (Romans 5:3-5 So, if its true that learning to ride difficult things can actually make us better, then perhaps some of the stuff we face is not our enemy but o ur friend. For me, its absolutely been the case. R obert L.

I h ave never noticed it before and it appears to be everywhere. LC A: Thanks for bringing in a clipping, which made i t easier for me to identify. The shrub is most likely, W hite Titi ( Cyrilla racemiflora L.) This shrub is often c alled summer ti ti, which is a common tree or small shrub, found in swamps and on stream banks from Alachua C ounty northward. I t blooms May to July. I t usually produces little nectar, but in heavy production y ears, like now, it is c onsidered undesirable because the nectar and p ollen are r esponsible for a condition k nown as purple brood, which kills the brood, turning it a rich purple color. In areas where White ti ti abounds and there is a histo-r y of such problems (Taylor and Jefferson counties), beek eepers routinely move their bees away when the White T iti is blooming. White Titi plant should not be confused with spring Titi, black Titi or the Buckwheat tree, Cliftonia monophylla. The photo pictured is of the White Titi tree. L ets look at the trees a litt le more closely and make s ome comparisons. White Titi is deciduous (drops its leaves in the fall), whereas t he Buckwheat tree is evergreen. The flower of the W hite Titi has the long (3-6 inches), finger-like structures blooming downward in the late spring to early summer. The flowers of the Buckwheat are small, white to pink, 5 petals, occurring in upright clusters at the branch tips, 2-4 inches long, appearing in spring. The fruit o f the White Titi is long w hereas the fruit of the B uckwheat tree is rounded and winged similar to a buckwheat achene. Q: I found this pretty, lilac wildflower growing near a ditch in my neighborhood. Can you tell me what it i s and can I dig it up and p lant it in my yard. LL A: I consulted the U niversity of Florida Herbarium to be sure my guess was cor r e ct and they agree, the wildflower is probably a false dragonhead in the genus, Physostegia. Physostegia is fr om Gr eek p hysa bladder and stege covering, in reference to the somewhat inflated a c alyx. A calyx is the green leaf-like sepals that enclose the petals and forms a protective layer around a flower in bud. Some species in this genus go by the name obedient-plant because the flowers remain temporarily in place when pushed to one side. F alse Dragonhead is best planted in rich, moist soil in full sun or light shade. False Dragonhead has 1-inch tubular flowers tightly clustered in long spikes at the top of stems and grows wild in moist ground in prairies, edges of glades and along s treams. The leaves are opposite, with toothed edges, up to 5 inches long, becoming smaller in size as the flower head develops. The stem is four-sided (roughly square in cross section) as is typical of members of the mint family. F alse dragonhead is sometimes used as an orna-m ental and the Obedient P lant name really doesnt a pply to the plant in cultivate d gardens as these plants c an be aggressive colonizers. Regarding picking or removing wildflowers illegally from wildlife areas, here is the USDA Forest service c omment: Almost all wildf lowers ar e fragile and many w ilt and perish soon after b eing picked. Over the years, t he repercussions of wildflower picking by unthinking people go far beyond the loss of the flowers themselves. A critical chain of events is triggered for years to come once wildflowers ar e lost. W e don t o ften realize it, but wildflowe rs support entire ecosyst ems for pollinators, birds, and small animals on a micro s cale. Butterflies and other insects, small birds, and anim als depend on seeds, nectar, and pollen for their food supply and life support system. In addition, some pollinators are not very mobile or have very small home ranges or depend on just one species of plant and die once their habitat has been destroyed. Q: M y neighbor has planted a bromeliad in full sun. I thought they all had to be grown in shade. JD A: Bromeliads come from a wide range of environments, from areas with deep shade to full sun, so chances are good you can find a b romeliad suitable for the amount of light your landscape receives. Light exposure can alter a bromeliads leaf color, leaf shape and growth rate. If the light levels are too low for the variety, then the leaves will become long, thin and g reener in color. If light levels are too high, the leavesb ecome shorter, thicker and l ighter in color, sometimes e ven the edges of the leaves w ill turn brown. B romeliads have very shallow roots so it is important to provide well drained soil which is moist but never wet. The i deal soil should consist of e qual par ts peat, bark and c oarse sand.

GARDEN T ALK R ebecca Jordi Tips for safe generator use T ALLAHASSEE The Florida Public Service Commiss ion (PSCeminds residents that summer is in full swing, meaning severe weather, includi ng hurricanes, can strike and knock out electric power. W hile portable generators benefit consumers during p ower outages, they can be extremely hazardous and even life-threatening, if not used properly. e encourage Florida residents impacted by severe weather to be careful when using generators, said PSC Chairman Art Graham. Preparedness is t he key; plan where and how youll use your generator and t hen do a test run. By planning ahead, you will keep your families safe and healthy during hurricane season, which runs through Nov. 30. Here are more tips from the PSC on how to safely use a portable generator. T ips on how to operate a generator: Never use a generator in a n enclosed or par tially e nclosed space. Opening doors and windows or using fans will not pr e vent carbon monoxide (CO When using a portable generator, remember that you cant smell or see CO. Even if y ou cant smell exhaust fumes, y ou may still be exposed to CO. If you feel sick, dizzy, or weak while using a generator, get to fr e sh air immediately The CO fr om generators can quick ly kill you. Locate your unit outdoors and away from doors, windows,a nd vents that could allow CO to c ome indoors. Install battery-operated C O alarms, or plug-in CO alarms with battery back-up in your home. T ips to eliminate electrical hazards: Keep the generator dry and do not use in rain or wet c onditions. For best results, operate it on a dry surface, under an open, canopy-like structure. Connect appliances to the generator using heavy-duty extension cords designed for outdoor use. Never try to power the h ouse wiring by plugging the generator into a wall outlet, a p ractice known as backfeeding, a dangerous code violation. Tips to prevent fires: Never store generator fuel in your home. Do not store flammable liquids near a fuel-burning appli-a nce. Before refueling your gene rator, turn it off and let it cool d own. Gasoline spilled on hot e ngine parts could ignite. For more information on generator safety please visit the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners website, www.naruc.org/resources. cfm?p=561.
