MARY MAGUIRE News-Leader Dont write it down. When it comes to keeping secrets a secr et, ther e is a greater chance of success if the secret is not in writing. Recor ds ar e public records, said attorney Clyde Davis. Davis is the legal representative for the Nassau County Ocean Highway & Port Authority for the Port of Fernandina, and recently he led its boar d thr ough a compliance review on public records requests and access under Florida s Sunshine laws. The main thing is to know what the boundaries are, said Davis. He told commissioners that the boundaries include texts, cell phones, landlines, Internet and emails. Theyr e all public r ecor ds, said Davis. We have that obligation to the pubic that we ser ve. He also told commissioners that they are not allowed to ask who wants the records or why they want them. ou can t ask the r eason for the request or ask for identification, said Davis. Davis said that he could brief indi viduals privately if they have concer ns. And Im not going to give you anything because Im not going to generate a public record, said Davis. The meeting also focused on pub lic access to information with regard to economic development. Thats because the Por t has agreed to help finance utilities at Crawfor d Diamond, the cer tified industrial site west of d owntown Callahan, to help attract a manufactur er or industrial complex t o set up shop here. Davis told commissioners that if they make a connection with a potential company they should give it to Nassau County s Economic Development Board (NCEDB Why? They have the ability that we as a public body cannot do, said Davis. And thats keeping secrets. Let them generate the r ecor ds, said Davis. The NCEDB and the chamber of commer ce ar e good resources, he said, because they have gr eater protections from Sunshine regulations. He told commissioners that if they need to share information in public meetings, they should avoid specific details. Theres nothing wrong in keeping generalities, said Davis. This kind of infor mation sounds like anti-Sunshine advice. It did to Barbara Petersen of the First Amendment Foundation in Tallahassee. It is a violation of the spirit and inter est of our constitutional right of access, said Petersen. The purpose is oversight and accountability In a phone inter view, Petersen said that all public officials should embrace Sunshine. H EATHER A.

Profits from sale of the birdhouses fund monthly Fun Days at the center e let them choose what its going to be whether they want pizza or fried chicken or maybe ice cream and cake.

T he pilot, who a friend says was f lying a vintage plane from the late 1 940s, did not survive. A uthorities said Charles Yeagle, 6 5, died at the scene off Miner Road south of Yulee High School and that he was the only person in the aircraft. Yeagle, who was retired from a l ong career for a commercial carrier, w orked as dir ector of operations for N ealco Air Charter Services based in F ort Lauderdale. The owner of the c ompany said in an interview Tuesday that Yeagle was a dedicated employee as well as a friend. He was the consummate professional, said David Hocher. Its a loss for the company because wer e a small operation with a few employees, but its also a loss on a personal level. We were all friends. A ccording to the Federal Aviation Administrations website, Yeagle was cer tified to fly commercial jets and had FAA certification to sign off on the proficiency of other pilots. The National T ranspor tation Safety Boar d is sending investigators t o the crash site, said Nassau County U ndersherif f Geor ge Lueders. He s aid the NTSB will decide when to move the aircraft from the marsh. Lueders said a witness saw the plane go down. According to the witness, the p lane had just taken off when it a ppeared that it lost power and lost altitude, said Lueders. T he undersheriff said the pilot was apparently trying to gain altitude in an effort to return to the airstrip at the Flying A Ranch before the crash. He said the plane went down probably 10 to 15 feet from Lofton Creek itself, in the marsh. H e said someone from the ranch called 9-1-1 just after 10 a.m. Fred Arnett, who owns the Flying A Ranch as well as the airstrip on the 85000 block of Miner Road, said he and his wife, Jean, hear d Y eagle s plane take of f around 9:30 a.m. but d id not hear any sounds of trouble. It sounded fine fr om the house, s aid Arnett. Arnett said a local fisherman spotted the plane in trouble and then called him at home. Arnett said the fisherman could not say why the pilot and his plane dr opped fr om the sky Consummate pro dies doing what he loved flying $1.00 County shoots nasty geese MARY MAGUIRE News-Leader Geese are under fire at the judicial center in Yulee for soiling the sidew alks. County officials say the droppings a re a health hazard and they can no longer tolerate geese using the centers courtyard as their open air outhouse. So, theyre flushing the flock. Theyve secured a permit from the U.S. Fish and W ildlife Service to let them use bullets on the birds. T he agency issued a depredation p er mit on June 25 that allows a shoote r to eliminate up to 20 Canada geese from the Robert M. Foster Justice Center The shooter has so far killed 14 birds, say officials, and hes got until Aug. 21 to get the other six, accordingt o the permit. The paperwork says r enewal is possible if the reductions to t he flock ar e not finished by that date. s just nasty. Its slippery and dangerous. And, people track it into the cour thouse, said Chief Administrative Judge Rober t Foster You? No, I havent stepped in it, but I h ave tiptoed around it, said the judge. F oster said maintenance workers h ave tried a variety of non-lethal meth ods over the last two to three years to get rid of the birds, including repellants and sonic sound machines. The judge said they cost $550 each and that the county purchased three. It was supposed to emit some kind of sound to bother just the birds, butt hey were useless. Nothing has w orked, said Foster And were frustrated because this is a beautiful, bucolic setting and its nice to see the bir ds. All the wildlife. The judge said that ever y once in a while a black hog will wander onto the property and cows have also made their way ther e. Deer are regular visi tors. But the geese have got to go. But Im open to ideas, said Foster Id love to keep the birds. Canada geese are migratory birds and they are federally protected. Theyr e the birds with the black heads and necks and broad white patches a round the eye and throat. Theyre k nown to mate for life and in the wild they can live fr om 10 to 20 years, though at the judicial center their days ar e number ed. The judge said dealing with the geese has for ced him to become somewhat of an expert in the routine of Canada geese. Do you know how much they leave behind every day? I do. said the judge. Each bir d dr ops one and a half to two pounds every single day and weve got mor e than 20 of them out here, so whats that? Thirty to 40 pounds. That s a lot. Too much. He said maintenance workers, including a technician and a custodian, are spending too much time on cleanup and its costing the county money. While no one likes to see, or step in, saturated sidewalks, extermination seems like a drastic appr oach, doesnt it? It is a drastic appr oach, said Foster. It has become a drastic situation. The county hired Wild Things Nuisance Animal Removal based in Jacksonville on July 11 to handle the job for $1,100.

All I know for sure is that this is a terrible, terrible accident. Arnett said he has owned t he airstrip for 40 years and that he has known Yeagle for the p ast 30 years. He was an outstanding pers on, a family man, well liked, and he was absolutely in love with aviation, said Arnett. He was the kind of person who would rather fly somewhere t han drive a car Arnett said Yeagle lived on t he ranch with his wife, Arlene, and that the couple did not have a ny children. They are great people, said Arnett. He said Yeagle split his time between homes in Yulee and F ort Lauderdale. He wasnt going to work t his morning, he told me he was off this week, said Arnett. I dont know where he was going today. He was always flying somewhere. Arnett said the plane was found in the marsh about a mile a nd a half from the north end of his 3,000-foot runway. He said a l ocal boater gave emergency responders the first ride to the scene. It took some effort to get them out there, but the plane w asnt in the water. It was on a dry part of the marsh, saidA rnett. Sheriffs deputies launched t heir own boats Monday morning from the Lofton Creek boat ramp along A1A in Yulee. Yeagle was reportedly flying a Globe/Temco Swift, w hich is a light, two-seat single-engine plane. The FAA reg-i stry said the plane was manufactured in 1948 and that Yeagle r egistered the aircraft in 1980. Authorities similarly identified the plane, calling it a yellow and white 125 Swift. Its an older, classic (plane a nd he won all kinds of awards for it. He fixed it up and w orked on it for hours. Groomed it. It was like his c hild, said Arnett. Arnett said Yeagle parked his plane in the on-site hangar and had purchased a home on the property 30 years ago. He s aid Yeagle was one of several owner/investors in the airstrip. A rnett said his hangar houses six aircraft. T he ranch occupies several acres at the end of Miner Road where it meets Haddock Road. It is a scenic property surrounded by old growth shade trees and a simple brown wood fence. An orange windsock is clearly seen through the trees. For most of Monday morning sheriffs deputies blocked the metal gate leading to the F lying A Ranch. One of the deputies said Yeagles wife waso n her way to the property from her job in Jacksonville and that h e was assigned to keep the driveway clear. Throughout the morning, cars and trucks arrived intermittently, and after speaking w ith a deputy through the drivers window, they werea llowed to proceed down the long dirt driveway or were t urned away. Adults, several of them holding small children, were seen gathered with emergency workers behind a brown-colo red home on the ranch near the edge of the marsh. An a mbulance was parked nearby. Fire Rescue Chief Matt G raves said Stations 30 and 70 responded to the crash. Around 12:30 p.m., a sheriffs motorboat pulled away from a nearby dock and headed east along L ofton Creek. Arnett said his airstrip is l icensed with the state and that no one from the property has e ver been involved in an accident. Late Monday afternoon, he struggled to understand and explain what happened. Theres not any magical reason to explain why this happened. I just dont know, said Arnett. firstname.lastname@example.org C RASH C ontinued from 1A company will be given $55 per bird and estim ates are for them to remove 17 to 20 birds. U nder the agreement, the company will r eceive $25 per nest (if present) and $150 for an additional visit (if necessary). The money will be paid from the judicial maintenance fund.

A spokesperson for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said in an interview Monday afternoon that nine depredation permits have been issued in Florida this year for Canada geese.

Canada geese are a protected migratory b ird, but we dont have a shortage because they j ust don t go home, said MacKenzie. Why not? The environment here is perfect, he said. MacKenzie said Canada geese are drawn to grassy fields and shallow water. They like blueberries and corn but they also feed on grass. He said they ar e drawn to broad stretches of manic ured lawns around parks, airports and office b uildings for their wide, unobstructed views. They need to see appr o aching pr ey because they put their nests on the gr o und, said MacKenzie.

T ALLAHASSEE Floridas favorable agricultural climate positions the state as the second largest produce exporter in the nation, according to a r eport from Florida TaxWatch, the independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit taxpayer research institute and government watchdog. The r epor t finds that far m ing and processing of Florida p roduce contributes more t han $7.5 billion to the state e conomy. Floridas agriculture industry is vital to diversifying our states growing economy, said Dominic M. Calabro, president and CEO of Florida T axW atch, the independent, nonpartisan, nonpr ofit taxpayer r esear ch i nstitute and gover nment w atchdog. Fr e sh pr oduce, s uch as fruits, vegetables, and juices are a key part of the agriculture industry and enhances our global trade impact. Florida is home to mor e than 47,500 commercial farms c overing 9.25 million acres, a nd pr oducing fresh fruits, v egetables and juices. In addition to the positive impact on Floridas agricultural industr y the pr oduction of these crops benefits other Florida industries, such as manufacturing. For example, 8.4 per cent of Floridas food and kindred products manufacturing output is tied to produce. In 2012, Florida was the seventh lar gest state expor ter o f agricultural products, sending the majority of exports to Canada, the Netherlands, the Bahamas, the Dominican Republic and Panama. Produce accounts for mor e than $500 million of the total agric ultural exports in Florida. T hese expor ts help diversify F loridas economy and contribute to an already positive balance of trade. Unsurprisingly, citrus is one of Floridas highest produced cr ops. Florida oranges and grapefruits exceed 65 percent of the total U.S. pr oduc t ion. H owever Florida is the n ations leader in production of many other types of produce, including squash, snap beans, cucumbers, fr e sh sweet cor n and water melons. These Florida-gr own fresh fruits and vegetables provide h ealthy food for families and p r ovide jobs for agricultural p roducers, for food processors, and transporters in our state and those who export Florida cr ops, said Jer r y D. Parrish, chief economist and director of the TaxWatch Center for Competitive Florida. Learn more about how Floridas produce impacts the economy and interacts with other sectors at www. FloridaT axW atch.or g. Russia is known for more than its exquisite vodka. The former Communist n ation is also endowed with high-octane influence andm ight as the largest producer of crude oil in the world ( and second in natural gas production). Therefore, the conflict in bordering Ukraine and the subsequent economic sanctions against Russia c ould combust like flammable gas. A nd potentially push oil prices higher particularly w hen incorporating tensions in Iran and turmoil in Iraq into the complicated equation. Consequently, any debilitating spike in oil prices could ripple through the U.S. and global e conomies and rattle the financial markets. So far, the U.S. and fore ign financial markets have h eld steady throughout t hese escalating conditions. That could change if a disr uption occurs in the global pipeline of oil (recall the Arab oil embargo). Oil prices also impact us at the gas pumps. Higher oila nd gas prices create a financial drag on consumers, and t he vitality of the overall U.S. economy. Yes, the U.S. econo my still runs on oil (despite attempts at alternative sources). This is magnified during the peak travel months of summer. Judging from record tourism levels on A melia Island andn eighboring areas t his summer, the relatively high gas prices have h ad little impact,h owever. Accord ing to tourism officials, the record levels of tourism last summer have been eclipsed this year. And more than 500,000 visitors came to Amelia Island last summer. W ithin the U.S., oil and natural gas discoveries in shale deposits in North D akota, Texas and P ennsylvania have helped s tabilize energy prices. These newly found deposits h ave bolstered the production and subsequently the supply of oil therefore suppressing prices. Europe is not so fortun ate. Most European nations rely almost solely on o il and gas from Russia. This puts them in a precarious p osition with the impulsiveness and aggression of Russian President Vladimir Putin. This is the biggest reason that Europe has hesitated to support economic sanctions against Russia. Any disruption to oil and gas imports ( from Russia) could send Europe reeling, and backi nto recession. And any disruption in d emand could upset Russias economy. Oil and gas account for nearly 70 percent of all of Russias exports. Many of these exports go d irectly to nearby Europe, while some go to Asia. M eanwhile, Europe has grappled with its reliance on o ne country as its primary source of energy. This concern is magnified by Russias aggression toward neighboring countries, particularly with their proximity to Europe. R ussia. Iraq. Iran. Three large and pivotal producers of oil. And three volatile c ountries that could cause t he global economic engine t o blow a gasket, spewing uncertainty into the energy m arkets. The situation is as unpredictable as playing Russian roulette. And this is a game we should try to avoid or atl east be careful if we decide to pull the trigger.

He can be reached at 753-0236. email@example.com A s we keep up with current events, an issue which h as become quite bothersome is the refusal of people at all levels and different cultures to admit they were wrong or made a mistake. The first r esponse usually is to deny but, if caught, they then justif y their actions by blaming someone else for creating the problem. My sense is this issue has transformed itself over the last 50 or 60 years more than any other, and I see three very different cate-g ories. The first are represented by amoral leaders like V ladimir Putin, who have no problem lying and if caught callously blame some other party. However, the Putin types are nothing new and have been with us throughout history. The second type is the hero with clay feet who, b elieving he has too much to lose, denies he has transgressed until caught redh anded. In this group are Bill C linton, Lance Armstrong a nd Alex Rodriguez. Whether because of ego or dollars, they would rather be embar rassed than come clean. Again, maybe the stakes are higher but these examples are nothing new. T he third type, I believe, is n ew and involves cultur es b oth in the Middle East and in Western countries where being labeled a victim has become a badge of honor. Here people like Hamas blame everyone else for their need to send missiles intoI srael to kill civilians, or terr orists, desiring to bring back r adical Islam, believe hacking civilians to death is justified. In the U. S., young killers blame the fact they wer e bul lied for their rage against uninvolved bystanders. In fact the only time any of theseg roups or individuals takes r esponsibility is when, like t he Mideast terrorists, they are trying to spread fear. O ur culture was s tarted on a different note. WhenI was growing up P arson Weems s tory of George Washington and the cherry tree was considered morallyi nstructive, especially for our youth, and t he ideal we wanted to follow. It spoke about the virtue of being honest, being accountable and admitting you madea mistake. It also spoke of the potential to forgive those who admitted error and took responsibility, especially when the harm was limited. T oday, rather than lead by the example, our leaders have taken to denying responsibilit y or blaming others for whate ver goes wrong. It seems t hat admitting you were wrong is considered foolish and/or nave. In justifying decisions, many times there seems to be a need to show how the other partys actions are really the problem, or h ow as victim you had no c hoice but to lash out. I n this regard one of the more laughable rationalizations made to me came fr o m a CEO of a failing manufacturing firm. The CEO blamed the banks for why his company was facing bankruptcy. Ia sked, Why are the banks at f ault ... is it that they cut the c ompany off in your time of need? No, he replied, the r e al issue is they loaned us money for a number of bad acquisitions which should never have been made. So what has changed? I b egan discussing the issue w ith a number of people I r espect. On my list was Ted Schroder, pastor of the A melia Plantation Chapel. Unknown to me he had given a talk on the subject a few years back, so he was well prepared to discuss his thoughts. Helping me through his more spiritual e xplanation, he advised that the victim culture has been e ncouraged. The current debate, he stated, is over free will, which we must have if there is to be any sense of moral responsibility. Those who advocate genetic and environmental determinismv ersus free will also excuse immoral behavior I see an additional issue which, in my opinion, makes the problem more complicated. First, while victims are encouraged to speak out, people in leadership positions who counsel that taking the path of the victim is harmful, instead of being applauded, m any times are attacked or chastised. Bill Cosby openly counseled black males to take m ore personal responsibility f or their families. Rather than l eading to thoughtful discussion or being saluted for standing up, he was bitterly attacked as insensitive. Others who have emulated Mr. Cosby have actually lost their jobs. S o the question is does a ny of this matter? I think that i t does, and leaders like our president need to speak to it, plus set an example, especial ly for our youth.

H EATHER A. PERRY News-Leader Lee Collins was awake when doctors drilled holes in his skull. He told the doctor, I want you to do me a favor. I want a teaspoon of smarts in each hole and half a teaspoon of common s ense. It broke up the whole operating room. His sense of humor has served him well since being diagnosed with Parkinsons disease in 2001. The holes in his skull were part of a procedure called Deep Brain Stimulation that for C ollins was nothing short of a miracle. I talk about DBS all the time because its fabulous! Its the coolest thing since sliced bread or pockets on a shirt. Before the surgery, he couldnt turn over in bed; he had involuntary muscle cont ractions in both legs and the tremors in his hand made even simple things like putting on a belt impossible. As soon as they got the i mplants in and the tremors s topped, I said, Oh, God, that f eels good! Collins was diagnosed with Parkinsons in 2001 while living in East Texas. I had a two-hour pity party on the way home and that was it, he recalled. A fter undergoing the DBT s urgery in his home state, C ollins was looking for a change of scenery and moved to Fernandina five years ago. For just over a year, he has f acilitated a local support group to aid others like himself. Our group is very positive and has a can-do attitude, said Collins. Theres an exchange of ideas and they look forward to the guest speakers. W hen Dr. Michael Okun, codirector of the Movement D isorders Center in the McKnight Brain Institute at the University of Florida in Gainesville spoke to the group, it was standing-room only. Hes my physician and when he opened his facility there, he asked me to come down and thats where I met Mohammed Alis daughter. Shes an advocate and she travels to Lebanon where theyre really advanced in ther esearch. Okun is also National Medi cal Director of the National Parkinson Foundation in Miami. F our members have had DBS since the group started. Parkinson s disease is an incurable progressive disorder of the nervous system. Medications help to manage s ymptoms but DBT can reduce t he side effects of many medications, allow a decrease in medications, or make medications mor e tolerable. As many as one million A mericans live with the disease e ver y day and over 60,000 new c ases are diagnosed annually.

I certainly was n ot told about this rule since that would have required someo ne to speak about it. So I must have learned it, or rather absorbed it, gradually over a long period of time. Whenever the topic of sexuality came up, incidentally or accidentally, I must have sensed the abrupt s hift in the ambience of my family life. Suddenly someone w ould laugh or crack a joke, give a look, lower her eyes or try to change the subject. I learned to enter into an unspoken pact with my parents an ancient conspiracy of silence and denial to k eep my family and myself emotionally safe from this dangerous t opic. I s your teenager having sex? You may not want to b elieve it a nd, to your face, they may d eny it, but research confirms t eens are engaging in a wide range of sexual activities at e ven younger ages. So, is your teenager having sex? The answer may surprise you. Teenagers today are engaging in a variety of sexual activities,i ncluding oral sex, anal sex and s ex with a variety of par t ners. W hen asked, many teenagers deny having sex because they ar e not engaging in sexual inter course penile/vaginal penetration. Many teenagers are under the mistaken impression that ift hey are not having sexual i ntercourse, they are not having s ex and, therefore, are not at risk for contracting sexually transmitted infections, includ ing HIV/AIDS. They may not be using condoms when they do engage in sexual activities, putting themselves at further risk. H ow can you talk with your t eenagers about sex when you m ay not feel comfor t able talk ing about sex? How can par ents speak with their teenagers about sex when they may not b e OK with the fact that their teenagers are sexually active? D o not gear up for one big conversation. The best a pproach is to create a relationship with your teenagers where you have short conversations about sexual topics. For example, if you hear something on the TV or radio such as HIV/AIDS, start a short con-v ersation with your teenager. Ask them if they know what H IV stands for or what it means to have AIDS. Aim for many conversations many teachable moments. Do not worry about knowing all the answers to your teens questions; what you know is a lot less important than how you respond. If you can convey the message that no subject including sex is forbidden in your home, you a re doing fine. S peak with them when you f eel comfortable and be willing to admit that you do not know everything. Your daughter or son will respect this. Take a moment to think of an answer rather than just saying the first thing that comes to mind. Let t hem know that you will get t he infor mation that they are l ooking for and will get back t o them so that you can talk again later. It is really important that parents take a few moments and calm down when speaking with your teens about sex. If you act all fr eaked out, your t een will act all freaked out. L ike totally! This will shut down c ommunication completely Y o u want to maintain a constant dialogue with your teenager and you want them coming back to you with more questions. If you are uncomfortable or they sense negativity your t eenager is not likely to come b ack to you with questions and w ill seek infor m ation cor r ect or not elsewher e It is not always easy to talk about sex, especially with your teens. It is hard to see our t eenaged children as sexual beings. But teenagers, with t heir adult-looking bodies, will have the same sexual urges y ou have. Without accurate information, without an available and receptive ear to listen and without a safe place to ask their questions, teenagers will attempt to navigate the complex maze of sexuality and sex-u al expression, on their own. Exploring their sexuality in i gnorance is not the way you want your son or daughter to find out about sex. The results could be deadly. Because adolescents engage in behavior that puts them at risk for many sexually transmitted diseases and have high rates of many of these diseases, routine testing for HIV and other common STDs is reco mmended for sexually active a dolescents.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 7A W EDNESDAY J ULY 30, 2014 OPINION News-Leader VOICE OF THE PEOPLE B B e e a a c c h h b b l l i i g g h h t t I want to compliment the NewsLeader for its fr ont-page coverage that finally exposed the beach blight seen d aily on our Amelia Island beaches! I walk the island beaches almost e very morning and on Thursday. between The Ritz-Carlton and the Scott Road beach access (less than 1/4 mile I counted over 35 tent awnings! This included a 30 by 20-foot monstrosity lar ge enough to park two pickup tr ucks, beach chairs and childrens toys. (See photo O bviously there is a distinct minori ty of resort visitors who believe it is t heir right to ignor e beach r egulations. Unfortunately, in addition to destroying the natural beauty of Amelia Island beaches, this minority is also endan gering both tur tles and seabir ds tr ying to nest on our shores. As far as Im concer ned this beach b light is abandoned trash and should b e cleaned up and thrown away every e vening. If Nassau County did this for two or three evenings the message sent would be the citizens of Nassau County will no longer tolerate beach blight on Amelia Island! My question is, why isnt Nassau County enforcing the beach regula-t ions? J ohn Fletcher Fernandina Beach I was pleased to see your cover photos under the heading of Beach Blight (July 23 takes such pride in sea turtle conservation and has guidelines for leaving the beach in a pristine condition, the county cer tainly does not do their par t. On the Gulf side of our lovely state, a lightweight garbage tr uck drives down the beach every evening just before dusk and picks up all the awnings, chairs and other debris left by unconcerned visitors not complying with the posted regulations. Are we not able to do the same on our small section of beach, even if it s just on the busier days of the week (ThursdaySunday)? And while we are on the subject of improving the look of our community, why in the world does our main post office on Sadler look so terrible, inside and out? Our tax dollars keep this facility running yet the landscaping is shoddy at best, and the interior has not been swept or mopped in months. Twice in the past week the inside trash receptacles were literally overflowing onto the floor. There appears to be absolutely no awareness of or pride taken in the appearance of this public facility. It would take so little to make a big difference both inside and out. Sur ely Mr. Postmaster, the public that you serve deserves better than this. Rebecca McCartney Fernandina Beach Y Y o o u u r r e e g g o o n n n n a a g g e e t t b b i i t t The issue of restaurants allowing dogs to accompany their owners has raised a good deal of discussion lately. I shared my thoughts in last months Voice of the People, and I wanted to follow up with another piece of important information. I had a conversation about the issue with a woman whose family owns a restaurant here on the island. About a month ago, a woman came to the restaurant with her dog, and the restaurant owners allowed her to dine on the patio with the dog. The restaurant was not cr owded, and the owners felt that this would be fine. A couple soon came in and wanted to sit out on the patio. They were seated next to the woman and her dog. One of the people in this party went to pet the dog, or moved too f ast and the dog lunged at them and b it the person. The woman who owned the dog is being sued, as are the restaurant owners. I am not sure if the restaurant owners have insurance for this incident. What I do know is that this restaurant will no longer be allowing dogs in their establishment. Except for service dogs, there is no reason for having animals in dining establishments. And speaking of service dogs I was informed that you are not permitted to ask for documentation from people who claim that their dogs are service animals. This does not seem right. We have a dog. We love her very much. But we would never think of bringing her into a restaurant. For so many reasons, allowing animals in eating establishments is a foolish idea. Steven Crounse Fernandina Beach O O b b a a m m a a a a n n d d I I r r a a q q Looks like Ron Sapp is still generating comments from a recent NewsLeader piece. Unfor tunately the latest comment, Iraq, might need some more thought in that Obama got elected because people generally wanted change. Be careful what you wish for! Think about the many things that we know are there, but have a hard time finding. The weapons of mass destr uction (WMD e a fact under Saddam Hussein, we just didnt find them. Research the Halabja genocide, March 16 1988, where 5,000 Kurds wer e killed, 7,000-10,000 injur ed, by poison gas, a WMD, and the Kurdish villages of Askar and Goktapa that wer e bombed with poison gas on May 31988. Saddams WMDs are probably in Syria now If the U.S. military was allowed to wind down the Iraq war, without interference from the politicians inW ashington, ther e would be stability instead of chaos in Iraq today and the lives and injuries of American ser vice people wouldn t be in vain! As far as the scandals under the current presidents watch, he is pr oving to be the most inept, secr e tive and divisive president we have ever had. Steve Zercher Fernandina Beach A A l l l l s s p p i i n n a a s s i i d d e e Steve Nicklas column, All spin aside, we dont need a tax increase (July 23responsible and intellectually vacant that a rational response is certainly required. Nicklas admitted early on that he was dizzy with confusion and went on to document it. Steve obviously has joined the Steve Kelley train wreck that is hellbent on driving our county resources into the ground. For those unfamiliar with the Kelley Plan published May 15, Kelley calls for spending every last cent of county reserves and freezing any replacement of county vehicles including several Fir e-Rescue vehicles with odometers in the 300,000-mile range. Can you imagine suffering a stroke or heart attack and calling 911 and discovering your closest response vehicle is out of service and there will be a 20minute wait. The Sheriffs Office hovel must be replaced and bids are coming in below pr o jections. Nicklas and Kelley say spend the remaining reserve for this anticipated investment. An alternate plan widely endorsed by experie nced business people suggests borr owing the $7 million, selling the current sheriffs property for the projected $2.5-3 million to draw down the cost to about $4 million. Interest rates are at historical lows. Nicklas, who purports to be a financial advisor, is clearly offering some bizarre advice. Why would anyone suggest that current county taxpayers absorb the total cost of a building that will ser ve all addi tional county residents well into the future? Further, the Kelley plan leaves the county with zero reserves, which will have a devastating impact on our attractive credit rating achieved under the leadership of former commissioners. Kelley s pr edecessors left the coun ty with a $14 million reserve. Repeat $14 million! Kelley will draw that down to zero while driving our county into the ground. Nicklas proudly endorses the Kelley death wish. Financial advisor? That s frightening. JT King Fernandina Beach B B i i k k e e t t r r a a i i l l As a frequent user of the newly built bicycle trail on the south end of the island, I hope to see it expand fur t her nor t h toward the town. There is v ery little room in the bicycle lanes a nd I often worry about being hit by one of the cars that drive right next to me. I think if the bicycle trail were expanded, it would make the roads much safer for cyclists and pedestrians. Brian Camp Fer nandina Beach M M i i s s p p l l a a c c e e d d m m a a i i l l Neither snow nor rain nor heat.... Ive had a post office box for my business for about the last eight years and I check it 4-5 times weekly Last Thursday I checked it and found no mail but ther e was a yellow slip infor m i ng me that I had a package that was t oo large for the box. Not having o r d ered anything, I was curious. I gave the slip to one of the desk clerks and what I got in return was a plastic mail crate filled with dozens of pieces of mail going back to April that had never been put in my box. There were bills I didnt get (for which I am beinga ssessed late fees); payments from my c ustomers (to whom I had to r efund late fees); and last, but not least, many pieces that belonged in other mail boxes! Now, I find it hard to believe that the USPS would hire someone that cant read, so I chalk it up to lack of a comprehensive Box Clerk Training Manual. In an attempt to prevent this happening again (because the post master cant imagine what went wr ong!), I have put together an abbreviated instruction manual. Step 1: Take a piece of mail from the stack. Step 2: Read the box number on it and match it up with the mailbox of the same number. Step 3: Place the piece of mail into the box. Step 4: Pat yourself on the back for a job well done. Step 5: Look up to the heavens and give thanks for your excellent working conditions, good salary, great benefits package and great retirement plan. Step 6: Repeat steps 1 through 5 until all the mail is put up. By and large, the service I receive from the walk-up windows and myr ural letter car rier is ef ficient and friendly. The postmaster and box clerk not so much.

(Answer: Ill always be a Giants fan first, but a good friend in high school was devoted to the Red Sox, so I started to follow them too.) Why are you a Georgia Bulldog fan when y ou live in Florida? (Answer: Good taste Some questions, though, are more difficult: Whats it like to be a liberal in Northeast Florida? (Answer: Not as difficult as you m ight think.) Area liberals simply have to abide by two simple rules: 1) know your audience, and 2) be willing to accept a few unsavory political realities. Rule number 1 know your audience. In the early s one of my favorite TV shows was Firing Line, hosted by William F. Buckley. Ip articularly liked his ideological sparring sessions with liberal economist John Kenneth G albraith, a former New Dealer and advisor to President Kennedy. Although I was philosophic ally drawn to the positions and ideas of economist Galbraith, I loved Buckleys use of language, his facial expressions when making an argument and his idiosyncratic speaking style. What made the viewing experience more enjoyable, though, was knowing the two were friends and that, although clearly on the oppos ite side of things, debated without animosity, without yelling at each other, without questioni ng the others patriotism and love of country, without name-calling. Firing line couldnt h appen today most viewers, accustomed to t he shouting matches of todays talking heads, w ould be bored to tears. Know your audience. There are few things, politically, that I enjoy more than a good philosophical argument the Buckley v. Galbraith kind of argument. There are few things, politic ally, that I enjoy less than a heated argument w ith a scary person. For me, a scary pers on is defined as an extreme radical, and theyre not the same thing. I enjoy talking to radicals, its the extreme radicals that make me a little n ervous and I try to get out of those conversations as q uickly as possible. No good can come from a debate with s omeone whos afraid of, and consequently hates, science (Every textbook has to make clear that global warming and evolution are theor ies, not fact kind of like gravity! OK, I added that last p art.) No good can come from a d ebate with a person who hates the First Amendments establishment clause, the part that separates church and state, who hates spending tax dollars on welfare cheats, even if those cheats are impoverished twoyear-olds and the list goes on. Nothing goodc omes out of those debates. Barry Goldwater said, Extremism in the defense of liberty is no v ice.... Barry Goldwater was wrong though, because as long as liberty is self-defined, e xtremism can be justifying and enabling, sometimes with horrible consequences. Rule number 2 be willing to accept a few unsavory political realities, like: Understand that Fox News, that journalistic marvel of fair and balanced reporting, is considered the sole well from which facts and o pinions are drawn. Back to know your audience, if you find yourself in the midst of a gagg le of conservatives, dont let on that you watch the Communist News Network (CNN is c onservative parlance) and never, ever admit t o watching the Proletarian Broadcasting S ystem, better known as PBS; spare yourself the astonished, disbelieving looks. In the interest of full disclosure, not only am I a proud watcher of PBS but Im a card-carrying member! Knowing that local campaigns U.S. H ouse of Representatives and Senate, state l egislature, county offices have been reduced to wars of words between Republican candidates all seeking to paint the opposition as being less conservative than themselves: He/she voted to raise taxes 4,232 times, doesnt support my plan to build a series of f orts along our southern border to keep out illegal immigrants, doesnt support our C onstitution, supports same-sex marriage (curiously, a person who did support the Constitution would then support the 14th Amendments equal protection clause, the part of our Constitution upon which every battle for c ivil rights has been fought, including the fight for same-sex marriage) and is for the hoped f or nail in the oppositions political coffin government sponsored health care (if a TV comm ercial, the candidate is seen snarling vehemently, Obamacare!) Never mind that Medicare is also government-sponsored health care, a fact that must have been missed by Fox News. Finally, the oft-wished for refrain, Why cant we just go back to the America envi-s ioned by the Founders? Well, President Washington, in his farewell address, warned A mericans about the danger of political parties and urged us to stay away from foreign entang lements, hows that worked out? The greatness, it is argued, of the U.S. Constitution is its vagueness. Maybe the Founders wanted future generations to debate the meaning of freedom of speech, or the right to privacy which isnt mentioned in the Constitution, or who is entitled to habeas corp us rights, or who decides immigration policy. I am not a believer in the doctrine of original i ntent. I believe the Founders wanted us to sit down and decide these things ourselves, in a B uckley v. Galbraith kind of way. But, I also b elieve that the Founders would watch the P BS News Hour instead of Fox News; American Experience instead of the which talking head is screaming now hour. What is it like to be a liberal in a sea of conservatives? Not as difficult as you might think, p articularly if you know your audience and y oure willing to accept a few unsavory politic al realities. Im going to go watch a little Bill Moyers.

PERRY News-Leader In her second summer as a Volunteen at Baptist Medical Center Nassau, Julia Clarks duties see her primarily located at the front desk or outpatient, although she has occasionally volunteered in both the cafeter ia and the emergency room during her three days at the hospital. The volunteers and instructors are always nice and ready to help the Volunteens if they have trouble with something, notes Clark, who enjoys her interactions with hospital auxi lians and other Volunteens. The rising Fernandina Beach High School senior is still weighing her options, considering the University of Central Florida, Clemson or Georgia Tech. Her major will definitely be electrical/mechanical engineering, with an eye toward a career in robotics. S he comes by her interest in engineering naturally since b oth parents chose careers in the field Ive had this interest in robots for a long time. I always liked to build Lego sets. My dream job would be to build robots for NASA. L eisure activities include writing science fiction stories b ased on shows such as Doctor Who, playing video games such a s Legend of Zelda and reading science fiction books. Clark is the daughter of Lee Davis-Clark and Mike Clark and has one sister, Jessica. T he four-footed members of the family are cats Amber, K itzu and Cato, and Matilda the dog. email@example.com HEATHER A. PERRY/NEWS-LEADER Volunteen Julia Clark helps folks enter the door at outpat ient services at Baptist Medical Center Nassau. Its an excellent volunteer opportunity because you get to see how the hospital really works and you can have a lot of fun while working, she says. 2 teens charged with torturing gopher tortoise Officers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservat ion Commission (FWC arrested two Clay Countyt eenagers Friday on charges of torturing a gopher tortoise.

T he weather is warm now, just fine for raising a family in the lushness of the Florida wilds. But lots of our wild no longer is so. Many o f our creatures around us have had to learn to live in s uburbia. And for those of us humans that share our back yards with them, summer is an exciting time to watch the action. Many of us have had the opportunity to watch nesting Carolina wrens in summer. These persistent little birds w ill find the most inopportune places to put their nests mailboxes, clothes on the clothesline, corners of the garage, etc. and will continue to try to put new nesting material in place even when their old material is removed by humans. Luckily they are s o persistent because their eggs and babies make fine meals for snakes, raccoons, and other predators. Others of us are luckier still, with bluebirds, chickadees and titmice inhabiting bird houses we put up for them, woodpeckers nesting in rotten snags, hawks with nests high up in our pine trees. Bucko and I are not that lucky Not that we havent tried to install birdhouses.W eve tried and tried, but e ven when some bluebirds or c hickadees stay around a few days to check them out, they most always seek other places to set up their families. And as for nesting birds in our backyard woods, they must be there but we have yet to find them. S o, for Bucko and I t he summer doesnt mean nesting birds. Instead we are delighted to have n esting pond turtles. Just w hen the sea turtle nesting season begins on our beaches in early May, so does the pond turtle nesting season commence in our own back yard. Its usually our cat, D umela, that notices the turtles first. She is an avid wind ow-watcher and we can always tell when she is fascinated and following a turtle from window to window. The turtles leave the retention pond and hike across our small grassy area and then to t he bare sandy soil beyond. They are headed for Buckos Yard, an area he keeps manly with no vegetation, places to store our canoe, our firewood and our various pots a nd mulches and lumber with o pen space for working on his r iding mower, setting up sawhorses and other outdoor tasks. I used to taunt him about this bare patch of earth which he keeps Rounded Up and weedwhacked to bare dirt. But Ive long since stopped teasing him. Now I see this bare area as a very special habitat its Turtle Beach for the pond turtles, the only unv egetated area anywhere around the pond where they c an put their eggs in warm sand and let the sun incubate them. But Dumela in the house is not the only one keeping an eye on the pond turtles trudging across our yard in dayl ight. Up on the pine limbs and high on the power poles o ne of their major predators is on the alert. Crows! No sooner does a turtle leave the pond than one or many of the crows start crowing. All eyes follow the turtle as she slowly chooses just the r ight spot to dig her nest. Its a laborious process, all this d igging and resting and digging and laying and then covering it all up so no raccoon will spot it. But the crows (and Dumela) watch the entire process. The momma turtle l eaves the nest area and heads back to the pond and the crows swoop in to dig up her handiwork. Crows are wonderful creatures and yes, they have to f eed their families too. But s omehow or another we a lways side with the turtles. If we spot a turtle laying her eggs we try to rush in behind her and put a five-gallon bucket over it until the watching crow loses interest (we hope In a few hours we remove the bucket and try to scrape up the rest of the area so the crow cant find the exact spot again. S ometimes this must work, since most years we s ee baby turtles that have made the journey from egg to h atching to pond. And sometimes instead we come home and find an excavated hole where the crow got its dinner instead. I ts a life and death struggle out there for sure. But as l ong as weve lived here the crows still crow and the turt les still nest, and although there may be many individual winners and losers along the way, nature always seems to balance it out.

Two men were arrested in connection with shooting a firearm from a moving vehicle July 19 after leaving a Hilliard b ar, according to Nassau County Sheriffs Office reports. T he victims said they were in fear for the lives during the i ncident that reportedly covered several miles. Deputies received a 911 call at 2:45 a.m. with the callers saying someone was chasing them i n a vehicle while firing shots, the report stated. P olice came in contact with the suspects vehicle within five m inutes of the 911 call, near the intersection of Eastwood Road and CR 108, according to reports, stopping it near the intersection of Mill and Alma s treets. Deputies ordered the rear p assenger, Philip Sheffield III, out of the vehicle. When he got o ut, several spent shell casings fell from Sheffields lap to the ground, but the gun was nowhere to be found, according to reports. The driver of the truck, Nathan Dennis, was also ordered out of the vehicle. According to reports, Dennis was very u nsteady on his feet, and s melled strongly of a lcohol. Dennis told police he had recently left Kings Bar in Hilliard after d rinking at least two beers. The victims of the chase told d eputies that, after leaving Kings Bar and heading to their v ehicles, Dennis, who had Sheffield and another passenger in the truck, began circling their cars in the parking lot and doing donuts. A fter leaving the parking lot, the victims said the pickup t ruck began chasing them while someone shot a firearm from t he moving vehicle. At one point, Denniss truck reportedly passed the victims vehicles and slowed down in front of them, while Sheffield, in the back seat, fired more shots from the window into the air. After the victims called 911, the pickup truck reportedly slowed down and followed them for two more miles before being stopped by deputies. N athan Lee Dennis, 29, 37417 Libby Road, Hilliard, was a rrested for DUI after refusing to perform field sobriety tests, a nd was also charged with being a principle in a firstdegree crime. He has since bonded out of jail.

Hamilton Rainey, right, won four gold medals. Junior lifeguards race into action during the competition, left. Junior lifeguards show off skills The city of Fernandina Beach Parks and Recreation Department took 11 pool and beach junior lifeguards to compete in the annual Jacksonville Beach Junior Lifeguar d Challenge on July 19. Many of the junior lifeguards trained d uring the junior lifeguard programs offered by t he city this summer They showed of f their s kills in a variety of events including a distance run, a distance swim, a paddle board race, runswim-run, a swim relay race and beach flags. Highlights included Hamilton Rainey, who took home many medals including four gold medals. Also, Madison Gates, who trained at the pool and at the beach throughout the summer, was one of the youngest to compete at age 10 years old. Madison was extr emely brave along with the other junior lifeguards who persevered t hrough heavy surf, swimming to buoys hund r eds of meters of fshor e. M adison was one of 10 kids that par t icipated in a junior lifeguard program that offered pool lifeguard training after school last spring, and continued with beach lifeguard training throughout the summer. This program was sponsored by the Ed Gaw Open Water Challenge Fund, which donates funds to programs that promote youth water safety in our community. A special r escue boar d was used at the competition by Jonathan Azar, a Fernandina Beach o cean rescue lifeguard, to patrol the competition w aters keeping the junior lifeguar ds safe during t heir races. This r e scue boar d was donated to Angela Ray and the city of Fernandina Beach Parks & Recreation Department by the Princess of Monaco Foundation in association with the International Surf Lifesaving Association in a campaign to prevent drowning in communities around the world. These highly efficient rescue boards are expensive and Ray was able to establish connections with the Inter national Lifesaving Association and Lifeguards Without Borders w hen she and Hannah Wrenn (also from F er nandina Beach) par ticipated in a lifesaving m ission in Nicaragua last April. These connec tions will help support drowning prevention efforts in our community through grants and scholarships, training support and international opportunities for local lifeguards.
I n pr eparation for season thr ee of TrophyCatch, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC to facilitate gathering data on Florida s famed tr ophy lar ge mouth bass and to reward anglers for r eleasing them alive. TrophyCatch is an incentivebased conser vation program designed for anglers who catch and release largemouth bass heavier than 8 pounds in Florida. There are three different tiers and two bonus cate gories offering the opportunity to win prizes: The Lunker Club (8-9.9 pounds) $100 in gift car ds, a short-sleeve T-shirt, certificate and decal. The Trophy Club (10-12.9 p ounds) $150 in gift car ds, a shor t-sleeve T-shirt, certificate and decal. The Hall of Fame Club (greater than 13 pounds) a $500 fiberglass mount, $200 in gift car ds, a duf fel bag, hoodie and other apparel, Glen Lau DVD, cer tificate and decal, worth approximately $1,000. The biggest bass of the sea son wins a $3,000 championship ring from the American Outdoors Fund, and if it happens to come from a major water body in Osceola County Experience Kissimmee chips in $10,000 in cash. The cur rent leader is J. Morrell, with a 14pound, 9-ounce bass caught and released on Lake Kingsley, last March. One lucky registered angler will win a $40,000 Phoenix bass boat, powered by Mercury Marine and equipped with a Power-Pole. Besides getting a chance at the boat just for r eg istering, every verified catch pr ovides 10 extra chances for the drawing, which is conduct ed at the end of the season. TrophyCatch seasons run from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30 each year. Anglers should carefully follow catch-and-release guidelines for these big bass and docu ment the catch through a photograph of the entire bass on a scale with the weight clearly legible, said Tom Champeau, dir ector of the Division of Freshwater Fisheries Management. The new T r ophyCatch Florida.com website makes it easy to register and review the rules and prizing details. Anglers should remember to take a camera and scale, and perhaps a tape measure to document the catch quickly and safely before releasing it. People then simply upload catch photos (up to five a n MP4 video clip up to 50 MB in size, complete a simple for m and submit. Since this is a citizen-science program, properly verified data helps FWC biologists enhance, conserve and pr omote tr ophy bass fishing. This will ultimately benefit anglers, fishing-r elated businesses and local communities. Corporate par tners, including Bass Pro Shops, Dicks Sporting Goods, Rapala and Bass King Clothing, provide the rewards, in return for carefully documenting these catches and live-releasing them in the same water system wher e they were caught. This pr ogram pr ovides extremely valuable data and encourages live-release of these older, female bass, so they can continue to challenge other anglers and spawn in their home waters. The pr ogram began in October 2012, and the World Fishing Network was gracious and conservation-minded enough to create the first website free-of-charge. TrophyCatch continues to expand, going fr om a total of 1,941 r eg istrants and 185 verified club w inners in season 1 to 7,903 r egistrants and 798 winners through the first three-quarters of season 2. Similar growth is anticipated for season 3. ith additional demands on the website and r ewar d pr o cessing, and evolution of the Inter net, the enhancements that our new partnership with Brandt Infor mation Services brings are sure to be appreciated by TrophyCatch participants, said KP Clements, the TrophyCatch director. The new website integrates social media resources so that anglers can brag about their catches with their social networks. The FWC encourages all anglers to check out the site, register to be automatically entered in the boat drawing and be prepared to catch-and-r elease lar gemouth bass. Fr om Okeechobee, through the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes to Lake Talquin, trophies are being caught year-round, but trophy bass are also being caught on small local lakes and even golf course ponds. These places are accessible and good bets for oppor tunities to land a lunker. 2B W EDNESDAY J ULY 30, 2014 SPORTS News-Leader CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK F FE E R R N N A A N N D D I I N N A AB BE E A A C C H HT TI I D D E E S ST T i i d d e e s s , S S u u n n & & M M o o o o n n : : J J u u l l y y 3 3 0 0 A A u u g g u u s s t t 6 6 , 2 2 0 0 1 1 4 4 Sat. 8/2 Sun. 8/3 Mon. 8/4 Tues. 8/5 Fri. 8/1Thurs.7/31Wed.8/6Sunrise6:42A Moonrise9:55A Sunset8:21P Moonset10:23PWed.7/30Low5:21A2.11 High11:55P7.60Low5:37A2.49Sunrise6:43A Moonrise10:47A Sunset8:20P Moonset10:56P Sunrise6:43A Moonrise11:40A Sunset8:20P Moonset11:30P Sunrise6:44A Moonrise12:35P Sunset8:19PHigh12:06A7.98 Low5:56A2.21 High12:32P7.59Low6:16P2.69 High12:41A7.82 Low6:32A2.25 High1:08P7.59Low6:59P2.82 High1.19A7.65 Low7:12A2.24 High1:46P7.62Low7:49P2.87Moonset12:07A Sunrise6:44A Moonrise1:31P Sunset8:18PFirst Quarter8:50PHigh2.00A7.49 Low7:58A2.16 High2:31P7.69Low8:45P2.81Moonset12:47A Sunrise6:45A Moonrise2:29P Sunset8:17PHigh2.48A7.35 Low8:51A2.02 High3:23P7.79Low9:45P2.66Moonset1:32A Sunrise6:46A Moonrise3:28P Sunset8:17PTide calculations are for Amelia River, Fernandina Beach.
