McDonald, who received a mechanical engineering degree from North Carolina State University in 1984 and attendedH arvard University Business Schools General Manager Program in 2004. He said new hires at Rayonier m ust be willing to work hard and that entry-level work is considered an a pprenticeship and that moving up takes time. And its hot, gritty manual work, said McDonald. Physically touching and walking so that when theyre in the control room they understand the world isnt just the computer screen. McDonald had this to say to stud ents skilled at videogames: We should not have gaming the easy process to get into this, said McDonald. It should be rigorous. He said starting pay is $35,000 to $45,000. The pay is good all along the way, said McDonald. McDonald said the company is n ot doing a lot with FSCJ and that participation in the program was to explore potential opportunity.

Thats $30,000 going down the h ole. We need to do something, said E dwards. The board typically allows nonprofit organizations with 501(c3 such as Scout tr oops, charitable or g an izations and political groups, to use county facilities free of charge. Many of the requests are for m onthly meetings for up to a year. R ecently the boar d has been limiting t he r e quests to six months.

The issue has come up for discusCounty re s tore s fees for buildin g MARY MAGUIRE News-Leader Developers will once again have to pay their share of the countys cost to provide new infrastructure, such as roadways. The county commission voted unanimously Aug. 25 to appr ove mobil ity fees. A start date was not decided, but the board said they could begin in December The long-studied plan outlines fees for a wide range of building projects, including houses, offices, shops, daycare facilities, recreation and medical buildings. It also divides the county into two zones, including one east of I95 and one west of the interstate. There is a third district for Rayonier s pr operty known as the East Nassau Community Planning Area (ENCPA) where there are plans to one day build 25,000 houses, commercial buildings and a school. That district has its own set of fees. I think it s an excellent mobility fee structure, said Commissioner Danny Leeper. Leeper headed the mobility fee task force that has been looking at a new fee structure for more than two years. The task force relied on consultants and attorneys for data and guidance. It paid Gillette & Associates in Fernandina Beach $193,021 for traffic studies and Nabors, Giblin & Nickerson law fir m in Tallahassee $23,000 to help write and review the mobility fee ordinance.

Oller said in an interview Thursday, Aug. 28 that the company opened in 2003 and half of its 26 employees arrived from other states. O ller is from New Jersey and, he says, so is the compan ys owner. Oller said it is difficult to find local employees sinceF lorida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ its local full-size CNC machine program. It was a shock to me, said Oller. I asked them why andt he basic reason I was told was t hat there was no enrollment. T he school brought back the program to the Jacksonville campus about eight years ago, say FSCJ officials, and students have received jobs at Florida Machine Works. O ller said he has an excellent relationship with the school but he would like to s ee the full-size program come back to the Nassau campus. H e said thats why he participated in a manufacturing forum at FSCJ on Aug. 26 with college officials, including President Cynthia Bioteau, and executives from Rayonier Advanced Materials and RockTenn.

Its still a long way off but I decided to attend to stimulate the conversation. Oller said the starting salary at Florida Machine W orks for experienced workers is $17,000 to $18,000 and $13,000 to $14,000 for workers who needed immediate training. Oller is proactive in efforts to find skilled labor and at the same time give local people a shot at employment.

Executives also said that manufacturing is a team-based operation and the ability to get along with people in highpressure situations is critical to success.

FSCJs Director of Workforce Education Dr. Jerry Collins said technology is changing rapidly and that keeping up with advances is c hallenging. ere really trying to prepare our children for jobs of tomorrow that we dont even know exist, said Collins.

C ommissioner Pat Edwards said when he joined the board, the task force was already at work, but hesaid he likes the plan. So did Commissioner Walter Jr. Boatright. Commissioners said at the meeting that the money collected within each district would b e used in that district. The board called its Tallahassee-based attorney to the podium for questions, including one about making changes to the document. Its not etched in stone, s aid attorney Heather Encinosa, who suggested reviews every few years. ou wouldnt make a habit of sweeping changes ... its flexible. The new mobility plan, offic ials said, was worth the wait. This is really a historical d ay, said Growth Management Director Peter King.

He found that the numbers were indeed too high and reco mmended that impact fees apply only to churches withm ore than 1,275 seats.

T he voters have spoken in Nassau County, but their voices were few and hardly convinci ng. However, they will have pronounced and emphatic consequences in not only how the county operates, but potentially the city of Fernandina Beach. This is the seductive nature o f politics. The re-election of Steve Kelley and the elect ion of George Spicer may not have been unanimous or decisive in terms of votes. However, t he pair of county commissioners is unanimous in direction and purpose. Both commissioners supported an approach of lower taxes and less debt within county government. It is more of a fiscally c onservative stance than their opponents touted. T he pro-conservative outcome could resonate through the upcoming city elections. The t wo incumbent city commissioners Charlie Corbett and Sara Pelican are preaching a similar sermon as their victorious county counterparts. This is not to detract from the platforms of c hallengers Tim Poynter and Robin Lentz. Voters are capable of deciding on such issues. A nd the so-called conservative stance may not be as popular in this area as it once was (as n ew residents move in). Spicer won by less than 200 votes, while K elleys victory was more substantial. H owever, the turnout was poor for both elect ions, drawing only a fraction of registered voters. Kelley received 4,269 votes to opponent Mike Boyles 3,376. The race was limited to only Republican voters because the winnerm ust face a write-in challenger in the general election. M eanwhile, Spicer got 5,334 votes to incumbent Barry Holloways 5,158. Spicer had lost to H olloway in his previous attempt at earning the c ommission seat. Their election included all voters b ecause there is no challenger in November. Spicers presence could alter the dynamics of the commission. Spicer, who is prom oting a frugal mindset, will complement Kelley. They o ppose raising taxes this fall as well as borrowing money t o pay for a new sheriff headquarters, for instance. Frequently, Kelleys motions would die for a lack of a second motion, so he has s truggled to win battles within the commission. However, Kelley has create d awareness of many issues and won points in the battlefield of public opinion. F ellow commissioners Jr. Boatright, Danny Leeper and Pat Edwards often sided with Holloway, who chaired the commission. A potential swing vote on many issues will now be Edwards, who ran on a fiscally conservative p latform but has rarely sided with Kelley. Kelleys lone ally has been County Clerk J ohn Crawford. He will apparently have Spicer on his side now. I f nothing else, it should spice up the dialogue within the county commission, asi t faces serious decisions in future months. W ith major projects and serious budgetary c onundrums staring down at the commissioners, their decisions will have ramifications for years to come on the county, its residents and its way of life.

T erms of the sale were not d isclosed. Inventory and assets were moved immediately to Science Firsts facility in Yulee, since it would prove too difficult to operate in two such widely separated locations. This is a big acquisition for u s, said Aaron Bell, vice presi dent of the Science First. The S cience Source has been in the same industry as us for about the same length of time (since 1960) and sells to many of the same customers. We expect to add a number of new jobs here in Florida and hope to gr ow the c ompany considerably We offered the people in M aine jobs in Florida, said Nancy Bell, president of Science First.

Bobbi Morgan Jones beach c ottage. The museum planning c ommittee included a number of friends of historical society f ounder MaVynee Betsch. Among them Phil Scanlan, Carlton Jones, former historical society presidents Dr. Rowena Stewart, Carol Alexander and current society president Neil Frink played k ey roles. Also, committee members V icky and Bev Asbury offered their home as a staging ground for strategy meetings. One week after moving to Amelia Island in 1998, the husband and wife had met museum visionary Betsch and Russ R ymer, author of the highly acclaimed American Beach: A S aga of Race, Wealth and Memory, at a book signing in downtown Fernandina Beach. That meeting led to a long friendship with Betsch. The museum planning committee regularly met at the Asbury home and Vicky Asbury became treasurer for the historical society. Other members did other things, Eve Jones said, noting t he group collected photos, i nfor mation and artifacts to p ut into the museum. It just started coming together. e were a coalition of people, black and white, dedicated to preserving the important history of American Beach with the guiding hands of the B each Lady, Rowena Stewart a nd Car ol Alexander, Bev A sbury said. F r o m 2004 thr ough 2006, the historical society received grants totaling $45,000, Vicky Asbur y confirmed. Most of the grants awarded were for planning purposes, including acquisitions and design, with$ 5,000 in unr estricted funding. T he museum also received a nnual fees fr o m founding members. Ethnobotanist Dr. A. Kweku Andoh and American Beach resident and historian Marsha Dean Phelts, author of An American Beach for African Americans, wr ote position p apers, including their r e sear ch as suppor ting docu mentation for planning the museums exhibits. And the historical society hosted a delegation of preservationists from other historically black r esidential beach communities, hoping to benef it from their expertise and u nique perspective on manag ing the sur v ival of a historical enclave. With preparations for the museum under way one major obstacle r emained. A building to house the museum still did not exist. Site plans for the American Beach Community Center were on the table. But the Nassau County Board of County Commissioners had yet to approve full funding for constr uction. Ansley Acree, shes the one that stepped up, Scanlan said, explaining that the for mer Nassau County commissioner, whose district included American Beach, pushed funding through. Acree served in office from 2002 until 2006. In that time she became enamored with Betsch. Acr ee pr esented American Beach Day pr ocla mations to residents and stood by a triumphant Betsch as the National Park Service received from the Amelia Island Plantation Co. the deed transferring o wnership of Nana sand dune. Betsch brokered the deal, on b ehalf of the A.L. Lewiss ociety, with assistance f rom other environmentally minded advocates. Acree promised publicly at Betschs memorial service that the b oard of commissioners would make the community center ar eality. Betsch, the great-grandd aughter of American Beach co-founder Abraham Lincoln Lewis, spent the last years of her life advocating and campaigning for the museum. Her e fforts in his memory revived and revitalized interest ink eeping alive the historically black beach community founde d in 1935. With her death in 2005, a noticeable silence fell. There was a lapse, Eve Jones said, explaining that the historical society began to be less active. Focus fell apart, said Carlton Jones (no relation to Eve Jones). There was a lull. Officers resigned for various reasons. Fortunately, with community center construct ion still pending, another A merican Beach r esident s tepped into the void. Ben Carter, a member of the ABPO, called or emailed the county commission on an almost a daily basis, Eve Jones said, noting that Carter attended meetings and served as a l iaison. It sent a message that A merican Beach was serious a bout wanting that structure built. He was a driving for c e behind getting shovels in the ground, Frink said of Carter, who died in 2011. With building construction c omplete in 2010, the commun ity center opened with an e mpty museum. And, while most involved with the museum planning believed it was destined for completion, they give the cr edit for car r y ing it thr ough to its final stages to one man. e cant forget Bill J ennings. Hes a rock, Neil F rink said. I cant say enough a bout him. He has r e ally been a driving for c e to get things done. . It has been a great experience for me to be ar ound a man of his charac ter I am just so impressed with his leadership, how he k ept us focused, Carlton Jones said about Jennings, who serves as museum project director and trustee for the A.L. Lewis Society, a nonprofit o rganization. Bills passion to get the job done . hasb rought us where we are now J ennings put some oomph and some muscle into the project, Eve Jones said. Bill is someone who likes to see a finished product. He will give i t 100 percent, plus. Cleastor William Bill J ennings Jr. has fond childhood memories of visiting A merican Beach with his parents and siblings. Those memories motivated him to build a home on American Beach, after retiring from his 30-year c areer with the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority( Orlando International Airport). He served the a uthority as executive director for six years. In 2001, then Florida Gov. Jeb Bush appointed Jennings to the first board of trustees for Jennings alma mater, Florida A&M University. He later served as chair for the board. Regarding American Beach, I think its important to hold onto that history, said Jennings, who served the U.S. m ilitary as a member of the e lite T uskegee Airmen. It w ould be a shame for us to lose it. Many of the other histori cally African-American residential beach communities are essentially gone, Jennings said, noting the loss of those at H ilton Head and Myrtle B each, S.C., Bethune Beach, i n New Smyrna Beach in central Florida, and Virginia Key Beach in Miami. Jennings gr ew up in Orlando but his mother was from Jacksonville just 30 miles south of American Beach.L iving the beachs history m ade him eager to find a way t o preserve it and pass it on to the youth. Jennings said he wants to expand the museum to present the history of the other historical beaches as well, so that the generation that comes behind us willr emember A.L. Lewis was an amazing m an, Jennings said, also e xpr e ssing gratitude for Lewis gr e at-granddaughter MaVynee Betsch and her role in keeping American Beach alive. It was something he left for all of us, Jennings said. 6 A CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK W EDNESDAY S EPTEMBER 3, 2014 NEWS News-Leader L OTS ATLIGHTHOUSE CIRCLEAwesome view of Egans Creek & Fort Clinch St Park Single family estate lot adjacent to historic landmark Amelia Island Lighthouse. 370+/ft on Navigable side of Egans Creek and is one of the highest elevations on the east coast. $795,000 MLS# 37069 96106 WADES PLACEF ormerly the Down Under Restaurant, one of F ernandina's landmark restaurants on deep w ater w/ dock & small craft launch.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 7A W EDNESDAY S EPTEMBER 3, 2014 OPINION News-Leader VOICE OF THE PEOPLE I I n n c c o o m m p p a a t t i i b b l l e e v v i i s s i i o o n n The board of an organization has the fiduciar y duty for the well-being of the enterprise it leads. So, with this in mind, I applaud the board of the Por t of Fer nandina for develop i ng an expansion plan. However t heir plan is at odds with what I and m ost local residents consider to be the vision of Fernandina Beach and Amelia Island. Our island is a unique pristine environment blessed with beautiful beaches, full of diverse wildlife, a unique state park, an unpr ecedent e d new bike trail and a r emarkably q uaint historic district. Tourism is t he economic engine of the island. More and more people are discovering this precious island and attracted to these features and leisurely lifestyle. The Port is the port OF Fer nandina and as such must be sensitive and supportive of the longt er m vision of the city. Expanding i ndustrial car go multi-fold by truck, rail and sea with its shar e of noise, traffic and hazardous chemicals is certainly not part of what this community wishes or needs. The Por t authorities need to look for a diversified business model that fits with the characteristics of our precious island. That is their duty as residents of the city of Fer nandina. One needs not to go far to witness what an expanded industrial por t would look like, just drive south for about 30 minutes and visit Jaxports Talleyrand and Blount Island terminals and their surroundings. I submit that most residents of Amelia Island would reject that vision. Let s join for ces to pr e vent the expansion of the Port with the pr oposed business model while suppor ting the Ports long-term viability with an alter nate business plan. Medardo Monzon Fer nandina Beach G G o o d d b b l l e e s s s s l l i i f f e e g g u u a a r r d d s s On Sunday, we went to the beach at Peters Point with family visiting from Georgia. I have many years of experience in the oceanand consider myself to be a strong swimmer but this only caused me to become complacent in regard to water hazards. It was like any other day until I found myself and thr ee kids ages 7, 9 and 11 caught in a rip current. W e were in waist-deep water that quickly became shoulder deep. By the time I r ealized we were being pulled away from the beach it was alr eady too late. I str uggled to keep the kids on their boogie boards and begged them to kick out of it but the cur r ent was too str ong. Exhausted from trying to pull the kids toward the beach, I yelled and signaled to the lifeguards that we needed help and with some assistance from other adults in the water the message was successfully r elayed to the lifeguards. They reacted with skill and expertise that resulted in all being r escued safely and without incident. My r equest to the readers of Voice of the People is that you r esearch rip current and make yourself aware of this very serious for ce of natur e. In fact, the first ar ti cle that I came to said that 80 percent of all beach rescues are rip cur r ent r elated. Please be pr epared and become aware of the warning signs. Words cannot express the overwhelming feeling of gratitude we have to the lifeguards at Peters Point stand #9 that sprang into action that day. God bless all of you and may He continue to give you the str ength and courage that was displayed on Sunday. T ommy Weller Fernandina Beach Bless your heart, darlin, well pray for you Dear Jennifer Adams: I read in the paper about your book, Say Goodbye to Your Southern Accent, and Im much obliged for your advice. But dont forget that most advice is as useless as a steer-i ng wheel on a mule. I s too late for me to change, Miss J ennifer. Im practically retired and what I sound like is not that important anymore, except when I call the cable company and the robot lady cant understand me. But it might not be too late for my four grandkids, who have Souther n accents t o var ying degrees. Maybe y ou could work with them. W e cer tainly don t want their accents to hold them back, as you say drawls ar e wont to do. If I hadnt been strapped with my accent, why, I couldve been serving up cor n beef and cab b age in some deli in New Y ork City. But, as I said, its t oo late for me. I appr e ciate that you have a master s degree in speech pathology, and I know that comes in handy when youre helping someone exterminate a Southern accent. Matter of fact, one of our daughters is a speech pathologist,a nd she s done mighty well in the speech b usiness despite her having a somewhat n oticeable down-home sound. W i thout that accent, I bet she could be working with you. If I may quote from this newspaper story: aking the South out of a clients mouth means shortening vowels, sticking Gs back on the end of verbs and losing colloqui alisms like What in the Sam Hill? What I want to know is, what in the Sam Hill is wr ong with what in the Sam Hill? I normally dont go around saying that, but its a perfectly good expression. If I had time, Id tell you what in the Sam Hill its all about. By the way, Im right particular about putting Gs on the back end of verbs, except when I don t feel like doin it. You see, Miss Jennifer, a Southerner has a mind of his own, and he won t cotton to someone tr ying to change his speech patter n. If you dont know what Im fixin to means, well, thats your problem. You need to study up. If youll pick a day, youre welcome to drop by the house for a lesson or two. Well put it down where the goats can get it. Ill teach you how to understand Southern, and you can write another book. Y ou can call it Kiss My Grits. The point is, Miss Jennifer, folks are different in different parts of the country. Thats just fine. But if books like yours catch on, well all sound like that guy on the 6 oclock news who wears a spray-on tan and enunciates words to death. Honestly maam, some of us r eally appr e ciate our heritage and value our Southern accents. And wer e bound and determined to keep them. By the way, forget about working with my grandkids. I was just pulling your leg.

Email: mpar nell@fbnewsleader com. visit us on-line at fbnewsleader .com When my husband and I decided to retire to Amelia Island, we thought we could foresee the future of the island based on what we saw in terms of respect for environmental conservation and historical preservation. Based on restrictions on tree cutting in our community and others, the 2004 Comprehensive Plan, the 2 009 Tree Management Plan and other documents as well as restoration efforts in the Historic District and Old Town, we assumed that development would be gradual and controlled and that the character of the island would be preserved and enhanced. Werent we naive? In the few years we have lived here, we have lost considerable canopy. We have seen constant struggles between resid ents and politicians and developers regarding flagrant violations of the city and county tree p olicies, development of wetlands (difficult to believe in 2014) and even the citys attempt to sell the very limited recreational land it owns. Now, there is the proposed plan to develop the Port that seems to be based on a location like Miami or Baltimore, not tiny Fernandina. We wonder what happened to those individu als who wrote the Comprehensive Plan, and why the actions of our political and business l eaders differ so radically from the plans and policies weread. Apparently, we still need to make those same critically important choices and decide what we want the future of our island to look like. Did you ride around the island this spring o r last spring when the real estate season was getting into full swing? For sale signs absolutely everywhere homes, business sites and wooded parcels. It looked as though the entire island was up for sale. I couldnt s top imagining what Amelia Island would look l ike if these properties were all developed. W hat I saw was Jacksonville Beach (before the r ecent improvements) and the many other b each communities in coastal America that have decimated the environment that attracted tourists and r e sidents and destroyed their economy through excessive development. We need to be far more careful about the decisions we make so that we don t go down that road. W e already have excessive development e mpty storefronts and shopping malls. It seems that every business prefers to build a n ew building rather than renovating one that already exists. That choice may be less expensive for the individual business, but it is extremely costly for the economy and the future of our island. Declining property values a nd tax base are but the tip of the iceberg. We need to consider what drives the econom y of a place like Amelia Island and what attracts people to vacation and live here. P eople come here because it is a livable community, where it is easy to get around and easy to get to know people. We have the basics for shopping, medical care, entertainment, recreation, etc. We have a lovely beach, the ocean and seemingly endless waterways, extensive state and local parks, exotic birds and other wildlife and picturesque swaths of old canopy with magnolias and ancient live oaks draped in S panish moss. Among the many things Amelia Island has t o offer, I feel that the canopy is a critical lynchpin. Without the canopy, we will be like so many other beaches that are essentiallys trips of sand with a few palms or other young trees. We will lose our competitive edge that attracts tourists, residents and business. And, we will lose the wildlife that depends on this habitat. When it is difficult to limit the sale of private pr operty, how are we going to ensure that Amelia Island doesnt wind up looking likeJ acksonville Beach and most of Jacksonville w all-to-wall development, little green space a nd ungodly traffic? By selling the limited undeveloped property the city owns? We need to implement strategies for conserving more of our environment. Even Jacksonville eventually realized that they needed to create parkland ar ound the city to make its sprawl into a more livable city. The proposed expansion of the Port has to be mentioned here because it is on everyones mind. It is, frankly, a presumptuous assault on the residents of the island and on all of the recent efforts to develop our economy. We already have close to 600 log trucks and semis, not to mention a number of trains, going through the heart of the Historic D istrict every day. We cannot take any more, and we are certainly not foolish enough to allow liquid nitrogen gas to be hauled through the heart of Fernandina. The planners are touting jobs. Yes, we need jobs, good jobs that offer opportunity for growth and advancement, but we dont need just a few jobs that are associated with such terrible consequences. This plan was obviously formulated t o enrich a few individuals. We are most fortunate to live in a remarka ble place, so we need to be very careful in making decisions that will determine the future of the island. We need to understand the roles that conservation and history have been playing in building a sustainable economy on our island. If we understand this, we will develop strategies to enhance these a spects of our economy, rather than destroying them. Our strategies should begin with the f ollowing: 1. We need to attempt to live in the footprint we have already established on Amelia Island utilizing or re-purposing parcels that have already been developed and restricting new development. This would resolve the problemo f blighted areas around town. It would also be good for the economy because our occupancy rate would be far higher, which would be attractive to new businesses. Furthermore, it would maintain the quality of life that makes p eople want to live, work and vacation on A melia Island. 2 To further this plan, the city and county n eed to acquire all of the undeveloped land t hey can in order to preserve our competitive edge. It is critical for our economy. Perhaps bequeaths and land tr u sts can play a role in this. 3. Finally, we need to work together to develop a conser vation plan that furthers the spirit of the Comprehensive Plan. This wouldb e a template for the future that we would need t o stick to.

Thank you again for the opportunity you have given me to serve as your Property Appraiser. It truly is an honor and a privilege. It has been rewarding to bring my private-sector experience into a gover nment of fice and prove that government can run more efficiently and be productive. For the second year in a row we have reduced our expenses by cutting waste, cross-training staff, eliminating unproductive positions, outsourcing work and embracing technology. We will continue to look for ways to impr ove our ef ficiency save tax dollars and offer the very best in customer ser vice. The 2014 assessment r oll was recently approved by the Department of Revenue and reflects an increase in the taxable value for Nassau County for the first time since 2007. Strong sales activity during 2013 has helped stabilize the local market by r educing invento r y and shifting the market fr om a buyer s mar ket to a sellers market in some price ranges. The value incr ease is dir ectly related to supply and demand economics and is being driven by selling prices and historically low interest rates. It is the statutor y r esponsibility of the Property Appraisers Office to list and appraise all pr oper ties within the county to a Fair Market Value every year and to administer exemptions. It is the commitment of this office to execute the duties and responsibilities of the office of Property Appraiser in a fair and equitable manner Ther efor e, we have continued to work hard to correct inconsistencies in the way property had been appraised in the past and to try and make sure we are not appraising property for more than it could reasonably sell for in the open market. The market value for 2014 is up by more than 5 percent compar ed to 2013. This is good news for Nassau County property owners because it helps r estor e equity lost during the r ecession. Homeowners with homestead exemption ar e protected by the Save Our Homes Amendment, which caps the amount of incr ease in assessed value to no mor e than 3 percent, or the consumer price index, whichever is lower For 2014, the incr ease is capped at 1.5 per cent. Also, it should be noted that higher property values do not necessarily mean a tax incr ease. Local taxing authorities have the option to use the r ollback rate which would keep taxes at their current level. Now as to the recent News-Leader article: This of fice does not and never has used drones or any other type of surveillance system to spy on pr oper ty owners. W e ar e required to update our aerial maps at least every three years and these maps are available to the public on our website. The recent article in the News-Leader was wildly misleading with fabricated quotes and innuendos suggesting we are watching from the sky. The use of aerial maps by this office is for the purpose of reducing staff time on the ground and increasing our efficiency in the field. My goal is to be less intrusive to property owners while we perform our jobs according to state statute, which is to appraise each par cel at a fair market value every year and inspect each parcel at least once ever y five years. By now property owners should have received their Notice of Proposed Property Taxes in the mail which will give you your 2014 values. If you believe your pr oper ty is worth less than the market value stated on the notice, please call our of fice to discuss. If you have questions about pr oper ty tax rates or taxes, please plan to attend the scheduled meetings listed on your notice. It is the goal of this of fice to be efficient, consistent and fair with all property owners. I am happy to meet with you personally.

I s ometimes hear tales of people finding gopher tortoises on the beach and, thinking they are sea turtles, uninformed visitors sometimes try to h elp them by carrying them to the ocean and tossing them in. Well ify ou look at a gopher tortoise you can see that it has the shape and h eft of a brick. And, with its stubby legs it swims about like a brick would swim too. Gopher tortoises inhabit o ur dunes and just arent built f or the sea. But lately the reports Ive been hearing about gopher tortoises on the beach are even more unusua l. Take the case reported by Chip Kirkpatrick for i nstance. Chip is an avid metal detector who spends a lot of time patroling the beach using his equipment to locate treasures of all sorts, but sadly, mostly bottle caps, buried cans and other metal junk people leave behind. O ne morning at Peters Point Park Chip encountered a gopher tortoise in the surf line walking n orth. Chip patiently blocked the t ortoises path until he managed to g uide it back into the dunes. But a s soon as Chip moved away the tortoise turned around and walked to the surf line again. Chip picked him up this time and carried him back to the dunes. Again the tor-t oise turned around and headed for the ocean. Again Chip put him b ack in the dunes and finally, as f ar as Chip could tell, the tortoise s tayed there. The next day on the beach by Sliders Chip again saw a gopher tortoise, this time actually in the water. Chip carried this tortoise b ack to the dunes and recognized its unusual dark brown, polished coloration and realized it was most likely the very same tortoise he had seen further south at Peters Point the day before. Later on it turns out, Chips wife, collecting garbage further up the beach, also found a tortoise, maybe the same o ne, floundering in the water and getting swept out to sea. She waded in and rescued it too. In all cases this turtle did not stay in the dunes but again headed back to the sea and once there again began heading north. This tortoise seemed to be on a mission, heading north along the surf l ine, Come Hell or High Water. It makes one wonder about its destination. Is it looking for greener pastures to the north? I guess well never know. L eslie Camp, who also knows a g opher tortoise when she sees o ne, recently also reported seeing a gopher tortoise walking down a dune access road off South Fletcher and right to the waters edge. The tor toise stepped into the water, let it swirl around itsf eet, then returned back up the b each to the dunes but couldnt c limb the four-foot escarpment so L eslie helped it. Leslie reported t hat it was about 8:30 a.m. and only 80 degrees or so, not very hot, and the water temperature was nearly the same. Sandra Baker-Hinton, who does the sea turtle patrol at Fort Clinch State Park, has seen gopher tort oises in the water a number of times and sent me a few series of p hotos to illustrate this. In one series, an adult tortoise was in the s urf line and Sandra, worried about its swimming abilities, lifted h im up and returned him to the dunes. In another incident a few weeks later Sandra again encountered a tortoise heading to the sea and this time she was curious and j ust watched, figuring she could haul it out if it got in trouble. The t ortoise entered the surf, came out again and then went back in, even deeper. The tortoise was actually swimming! After this brief swim the tortoise left the water and walked back up to the dunes. So why are gopher tortoises h eading to the sea? One theory is that on super-hot days like weve b een having lately, tortoises are seeking the relative coolness of the water to cool down. (But Leslies encounter on a cool-ish morning seems to negate this theory.) Others think that maybe the tortoises want to take a bath. I think it might have something to do with salt intake, like a deer to a s alt lick or whatever. Sandras idea is even more interesting. She thinks that maybe over the years o ur tortoises have been brought to t he sea by so many nave tourists t hat they have learned to like the occasional dipping! Inter n et searches also reveal the facts of occasional tortoise forays into the surf elsewhere too, but no one else knows why either.I guess its just another fact of n ature to enjoy but not unders tand. So be it. P at Foster-Turley is a zoologist on Amelia Island. She welcomes your natur e questions and observations. firstname.lastname@example.org 8A W EDNESDAY S EPTEMBER 3, 2014 NEWS News-Leader CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK S o why are gopher t ortoises heading t o the sea?

GAINESVILLE Consumer sentiment among Floridiansr emained flat at a post-recession high for the third consecutive month in August, according to a University of Florida survey. While U.S. consumers are somewhat more pessimistic, F lorida consumers are holding s teady , said Chris McCarty, d irector of UFs Survey Research Center in the Bureau of Economic and Business Research. The five-component survey showed mixed results. Survey participants perception of b eing financially better off now t han a year ago remained u nchanged, while their confid ence in having impr o ved per sonal finances a year from now rose. Trust in the national economy over the next year, confidence in U.S. economic conditions over the next five yearsa nd the opinion about whether n ow is a good time to buy a big c onsumer item, such as a car all went down. Age and income were key factors in this months study. The overall index fell for thoseu nder age 60 but rose for those aged 60 and over. Households with incomes over $30,000 sawa drop in confidence, while confidence among low-income households remained flat. Further analysis found increase d pessimism among respond ents ages 50 to 65, who may b e concerned about their current personal finances. If this continues, it may be a sign they feel unprepared for retirement, McCarty said. These results suggest the Florida economy is not growing r apidly, McCarty said. While i ts good news that the index i s not volatile, we would like it t o be about 10 points higher given that the recession ended more than five years ago. The states unemployment rate for July remained at 6.2 percent, matching the national rate. Florida s unemployment r ate has wavered between 6.2 a nd 6.3 percent since D ecember 2013, after pr e vi ously declining each month for 19 months. Florida lost jobs in July, primarily in manufacturing, services, wholesale tradea nd government; this loss was balanced by a decline in the labor force. Floridas wages have been relatively flat, and a larger percentage of the labor force is working part-time when they w ould like to work full-time, M cCar ty said. H ousing prices in July were higher than a year ago, but they were flat compared with Junes figures. The median price of an existing single-family home was $185,000 for both months. Mortgage rates remained near h istorical lows, yet housing s ales slowed in July. Some of t his is due to a pull-back from i nvestors many who paid cash, McCarty said. Near-record stock market highs continue to generate optimism among some Florida consumers, McCarty said, although there is increasing speculation that a correction in stocks, typically defined as a decrease of 10 percent or more, is likely in the next year Looking ahead, all eyes are on the Federal Reserve, M cCarty said. The debate among mem b ers of the Federal Open Market Committee, which sets short-term interest rates, reflects discussions among economists about where the economy is headed, McCarty said. Members are split with s ome seeing us firmly on the r oad to recovery and advocati ng for increased interest rates t o head of f inflation. Others see signs of weakness and stagnation and advocate a delay in raising interest rates.

The new general revenue p rojection is $141.6 million less than previously thought. The states estimators attribute the scaled back projections to normal fluctuations, not any underlying weaknesses in the economy. The final estimate for next years budget wont be announced until March. F or the fiscal year ending June 30, actual general revenue collections fell short of projections made last March by $106 million. The revenue collection estimates for the current fiscal year (2014-15e increased by $49.2 million, but the estimates for the next year (201516) were lowered by $84.1 million. E stimates for the sales tax, the largest source of general revenue, were increased. However, the estimates for corporate income taxes and real estate taxes (documentary stamp and intangibles taxes) were all revised lower. Florida is now in the middle o f its largest ever state budget, which is expected to grow even larger next year, said Dominic M. Calabro, president and CEO of Florida TaxWatch, the independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit taxpayer research institute. Florida is experiencing steady recovery and growth and our revenues have finally recovered from the recession. The projected general revenue collections for this year are expected to exceed the prerecession high of FY 2005-06 for the first time and are expecte d to continue to grow between 4-5 percent annually through f iscal 2017-18. While state revenue cont inues to grow, the next budget may be a little tighter than expected, said Kurt Wenner, vice president for tax research of Florida TaxWatch. If legislators want to keep the same level of reserves there are now, t here will be only $43 million more GR available than was s pent this year, which will likely result in increased competition to fund social programs, provide tax cuts and increase investment in core government services, such as education and health care. Florida TaxWatch is a statewide, nonprofit, non-partis an research institute that over its 34-year history has become recognized as the watchdog of citizens tax dollars. Visit www.FloridaTaxWatch.org. No change in consumer confidence T here likely will be increased competition to f und social programs, provide tax cuts and i ncrease investment in core government services, such as education and health care.

S S h h a a r r k k d d a a m m a a g g e e s s d d o o c c k k A large shark caused $76,000 in damaged electrical lines at the city docks after being caught and left tied to a c leat, where it was later found dead by dock workers, according to a city police report. The report states surveillance footage from the Fernandina Harbor Marina showed five men carrying coolers and fishing equipment to the dock area on Aug. 16 around 10 p.m. All ramps leading to the docks have signs stating that fishing from the docks is prohibited. A rather large shark, found b y dock workers the next day, w as left tied to a cleat by a hook o n a rope and chain, the report stated. Police surmised the shark damaged electrical wiring connected to a 100-amp pedestal when it was thrashing about trying to get free, or possibly when i t was being reeled in. A ccording to the report, the p edestal, which supplies electricity to lar g er boats docked at the marina, was completely d estroyed. An estimate to repair the pedestal and electrical lines was $76,000. The marina, however, had recently accepted a bid to refurbish the electrical system at the docks, which will result in loose electrical lines b eing placed in a conduit. Fernandina Harbor Marina M anager Joe Springer told police that visitors have ignored the signs and fished from the docks before, sometimes leaving dead fish, blood and trash that must be cleaned up by dock workers. Springer said this occurs after the marina closes and Bretts Waterway Caf t urns off the lights at 10 p.m. Springer asked for increased police patrols of the docks and for anyone caught fishing there to be trespass-warned by police. Springer was to provide police with video footage so the suspects could possibly be identified. D D o o g g l l e e f f t t i i n n h h o o t t c c a a r r A small dog was taken from its owner Aug. 24 by Nassau County Animal Control after it was left in a hot vehicle outside Walmart, according to a sheriffs office report. Responding to a call from a passerby, police found a small, frail female Jack Russell terrier which was whimpering and panting heavily inside a Dodge D akota around 11:45 a.m. outs ide the Walmart Supercenter in Y ulee. The trucks passenger window was rolled down about 2 inches, according to the report, and the drivers side window was rolled down about six inches. The report also stated the s un was shining directly on the v ehicle, and the dog had been t rying to get cool in a shaded ar e a under the dashboar d The trucks doors were u nlocked so a deputy took the dog out of the car. According to the report, the seat and floorboard were extremely hot and uncomfortable to touch and the dog was very warm. The deputy put the dog in h is air-conditioned patrol car and gave it some water, accordi ng to the report, and the dog stopped panting after cooling off. A short time later, the man who owned the truck and the dog came out of the store and became hostile toward deputies and the passerby who had made the call, the report s tated. The man also reportedly told police to hurry up and put my dog back in the truck, Ive got to finish my shopping. Nassau County Animal Control was consequently contacted by police and took possession of the dog, according t o the report. The outside temperature was reportedly 94 degrees with a heat index of 103 degrees. The dog had been left in the truck for about 15 minutes, according to a Walmart surveillance video. The dogs owner was given a summons to appear in court on an animal cruelty charge, a misdemeanor. T T r r u u c c k k i i n n r r i i v v e e r r A Hilliard woman was arreste d Aug. 16 after driving her pickup truck into the St. Marys River at the Kings Ferry boat ramp and for battering a law enforcement officer, according to a Nassau County Sheriff Office report. A man reported to police late i n the evening of Aug. 16 that he h ad picked up Tina Lowe, 52, in his boat along with another female from the waters off the r amp in Hilliard. Lowe was reportedly having trouble staying above the water and the other woman was trying to help her get out. Once on land, the man reportedly retrieved Lowes p ickup truck, backed it up to the boat ramp and helped Lowe g et inside. She would not let the other woman drive, however, and attempted to leave the scene. But instead of putting the truck in drive, she put it in reverse and drove into the St. Marys River, according to the report. Arriving at the scene, a d eputy observed the vehicle was completely submerged in the river, but Lowe was nowhere to be found. She was shortly found nearby, asleep in a lawn chair in a neighboring yard, according to the report. When the deputy confronted L owe, she was verbally combative, her speech was slurred and she had a very strong odor of alcohol on her breath, the report said. She also was unsteady on her feet and did not want to answer any questions as to how the truck got in the water. She also would not identify the other woman who had been at the scene earlier, the report said. Lowe became agitated on being read her Miranda rights, a ccording to the report, and r efused to submit to field sobrie ty tests. Placed under arrest for DUI, Lowe was put into a patrol vehicle, but then began throwing a loud verbal tantrum, which interfered with the officers radio communication with dispatch. I n an attempt to calm Lowe d own, the officer reportedly s tepped out of the front seat of the patr o l car and opened the back door. Lowe then attempte d to get out and began yelling and kicking her feet, striking the officer in his knee and belt, the report said. Lowe, of 36199 Pecan Drive, Hilliard, was charged with battery of a law enforcement offic er and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

For more information, call:261-70001303 Jasmine Street, Suite 101 F ernandina B each,FL Connecting People, Help & Hope New charges filed against teacher News-Leader New charges were filed Thursday against Daniel W right, a Fernandina Beach High School teacher arrested i n June for having sex with an underage student and subseq uently charged with 33 counts of possession of child pornography and one count of transmission of material harmful toa minor. T he new charges include three counts of sexual battery, t wo counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor and one c ount of tampering with evidence. Wright, 32, pleaded not guilty in court Thursday. The charges involve one female victim in Hilliard, where Wright once taught, and one female victim in Fernandina Beach. W right, a media teacher and yearbook advisor at FBHS, was originally arrested June 16 after city police detectives said he confessed to an inappropriate relationship with a 17-yearold senior during the past school year. As part of their investig ation, detectives s earched Wrights cell phone, which led to the discovery of a second victim in Hilliard and the pornography charges, according to police r eports. The investigation continues. A nyone with any knowledge particularly students and/or their parents regarding inappropriate sexual conduct or inappropriate photos sent to or received by Wright should contact the Nassau County S heriffs Office at 225-0147 or 855-725-2630 if they live in the c ounty, or Fernandina Beach Police at 277-7342 if they live in the city. Wright was a TV production and digital design teacher at Fernandina Beach High since 2012, and formerly taught at Hilliard High School. Wright Children f ace bullying online Florida News Connection TALLAHASSEE Bullying is no longer a behavior that happens mostly on the playgr ound or the school bus. Social media i s providing online channels for n egative interactions between c hildren, with more than half of teens reporting they have witnessed online bullying. Exper ts like Peggy Caruso, a life coach and author of the book Revolutionizing Y our Child s Life, says the best way an adult can help their child is to be aware of the sources of bullying. The biggest thing is understanding the types of bullying and the signs that you look for Caruso says. Those signs include a child who seems withdrawn, lacks the desir e to interact with oth ers, or exhibits extr eme changes in behavior. Florida law prohibits bullying, and specifically prohibits the use of technology to inflict psychological distress. In addition to increased techn ology providing outlets for bull ies, Car uso says it has also d ecr e ased traditional communication between children, like face-to-face problem solving. One of the issues with technology and social media is the loss of communication, says Caruso. So, I also teach themh ow to mastermind together, b rainstor m with other childr en, a nd just try to bring back some t hings that ar e lost. To deter negative online interactions, she says advise your child to r esist the temptation to respond to the bully, dont retaliate, save any evidence and use online privacy tools and settingst o block the bully

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK OUTDOORS/ TIDES WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER3, 2014NEWS-LEADER/ FERNANDINABEACH, FL ORIDA BETH JONESNe w s-LeaderJamari Peacock scored three times in the Hornets' season opening victory over the visiting Pirates. Yulee defeated Fernandina Beach High School 41-12 to open the 2014 campaign. "I give our players and staff all the credit," said Bobby Ramsay, head football coach at Y ulee. "We knew Fernandina is a good team and that we needed a fast start against them. I feel like we were able to get a couple big plays early and create a cushion. "R.J. Adams' interception and A.J. Damiano's forced fumble really made a difference, as they both set up scores. I was really proud of the defensive effort; we had everyone running to the ball and playing with the kind of effort that we stress. "Offensively Dylan Basham had one of the better games a quarterback has had for us since I have been here. Bryce Oldaker, Ironne Coley and Apollo Pederson all had catches of over 30 yards, so it was great to get so many big plays. "Also our kick coverage was as good as we have had, Bradley Thornton kicked extremely well." Peacock had 140 yards on 12 carries. Basham was 5-for-8 for 145 yards and a pair of touchdowns (50 yards to Oldaker and 62 yards to Coley with one pick. Basham also r ushed eight times for 53 yards. Coley also scored on the ground and finished the night with 22 yards on six carries. Damiano had eight tackles to go along with the forced fumble. Kyrdin Huguley had six stops for Yulee. Jed Marsh had five and Isaiah Leverett had a quarterback sack. "Give Yulee a ton of credit,"FBHSCoach T ravis Hodge said. "They waited on us for a year and they took it to us Friday. Out-coached us, out-played us, they were the more disciplined team. Coach Ramsay had his guys r eady to play. Bottom line for us is we have a long long road ahead of us if we don't change something quickly. We have to learn how to practice, learn how to prepare and that's my job and somehow I have to find a way to do a better job at that." Y ulee hosts Potter's House Friday before opening district play.3 scores for Peacock in Yulees win over FBHS"We have a big district, so this is our last game before that part of our schedule begins," Ramsay said. "We told the team that we have to make our biggest improvements this week. We are stressing to the players that it is not about the opponent, we are competing against ourselves for something bigger." On the road again, the Pirates head to Nease Friday. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. "It doesn't get any easier this week,"Hodge said. "Nease is probably the most sound offense we have faced." The Pirates' home opener is Sept. 12 with Hilliard.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Be st outdoors action September, OctoberThe first day of fall arrives Sept. 22 and is long awaited by local outdoorsmen. This past weekend you could already sense the hint of fall weather with morning air temperatures running in the high 60s with a noticeable lack of humidity. Labor Day holiday weekend signals the last major holiday of the summer season and children return school. This past weekend saw a lot of fishing activity taking place both in the backwater and offshore fishing waters. Yet, the best outdoor action is yet to come. "I simply love to bass fish during the cooler months of fall," said Ryan Graddy of Manor, Ga. "Topwater action is excellent when the water temperature begins to cool off, particularly for trophysize bass." Graddy regularly bass fishes with his grandfather, Johnny Steedley, in a private pond just east of Waycross, Ga. "My grandfather has caught two 14-pound bass on topwater plugs and several trophy bass weighing over the 10-pound mark," Graddy said. "During one bass fishing trip to their private pond, my granddad hooked a giant of a bass but unfortunately the hooks pulled free. "Granddad claims that bass made those 14-pound bass look like bream. "My favorite bass lure is a Rage Tail frog in the watermelon/red flake color pattern. I have caught and re leased several big bass fishing weighing over the eightpound mark with the frog. "I recently caught and r eleased an 11-pound bass while fishing with the frog." There are many lakes and ponds located throughout Southeast Georgia and Northeast Florida that harbor shallow water structures where cypress trees and a wide variety of southern aquatic vegetations set up for exciting bass action while casting surface plugs. Some of the more successful surface plugs for fishing heavy vegetation include the ever-popular plastic frog, Gary Yamamoto Sinko swimming worm, buzz baits and a weightless spoon. T arpon fishing also heats up in Southeast Georgia and Northeast Florida during the month of September and often runs into the first portion of October, barring any unexpected cold fronts. Look for tarpon migrating south from as far north as Vi r ginia to stop by in our menhaden-rich waters to feed along our inlets and beaches before heading further south. A major run of mullet typically takes place during the month of September and October, which typically heats up redfish, sea trout and flounder action along the beaches, inlets and backwaters. Charlie Freeman targets r edfish, flounder and sea trout while fishing in the fishy waters of Egans Creek. "I will typically fish with live finger mullet, shrimp, bullhead minnows or frozen OUTDOORSTerry Lacoss OUTDOORS4BWEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER3, 2014 SPORTS News-Leader Charlie Freeman is pictured with daughter Kim Musto and their nice catch of Egans Creek r edfish, above left.Ryan Graddy, above right, is pictured with his 11-pound largemouth bass he caught and r eleased recently while retrieving a Rage Tail plastic frog over a huge stand of aquatic vegetation. Left, Mike Dotson is pictured with his fishing dog, Honey, who loves the water and redfishing. finger mullet while fishing close to boat docks in Egans Creek," Freeman said. "My tackle set-up includes 40pound braided main line, 30to 40-pound fluorocarbon leader, 3/0 Owner circle hook while using a Fish Finder setup. "A one-ounce egg sinker is employed to keep the bait dead on the bottom. "I often fish by myself but simply love to fish with my wife Cheryl and daughter Kim Musto. "Right now the shrimp and mullet are moving into the creeks, where the fishing should be excellent during the upcoming fall months." Mike and Linda Dotson also look forward to the months of September and October for some of the best r edfishing action to take place. "When Linda can't fish with me I will take our pet dog Honey along," Mike Dotson said. "Honey loves the water and it's often hard to keep her from spooking shallow water redfish." Mike and Linda Dotson are regular competitors on the IFA redfish tour but it looks like their pet dog, Honey, may become a fill-in!. "Honey is a rescue dog," Mike Dotson said. "I first took her to the water to see if she would be compatible. Honey jumped right into the water and became real happy. I knew we had found the right dog." Bow season is open in Zone-C Sept. 13 through Oct. 12. Muzzleloader, crossbow and bow season are open Oct. 18-31 and general hunting season for Zone-C is open Nov. 1 through Jan. 18.

ANGELA DAUGHTR Y/NEWS-LEADER The porch of yesteryear is making a comeback A realtor friend of mine sent me a n ote the other day and mentioned an article she had read about the return of the porch. Locally know as the Porch Lady, she knew I would be interested. For close to 15 years m y musings from my porch have entertained News-Leader readers.M y porch is where I am happiest. My porch is a place of retreat, comf ort and enjoyment of the ebb and flow of coastal breezes, seasonal flowers and the birds that visit our backyard feeders delighting us with their antics. T he article stated that 63 percent of new single-family houses complet-e d last year had porches an increase of 42 percent over two decades earlier. As t hey say, it is a start. Our island has wonderful examples of joyful porches just take a stroll through the historic district anda dmire the glorious porches of our V ictorian beauties. Amelia Park is a community that celebrates the social aspect of p orches that line its streets. S o why this development? Some experts suggest that people are seeking feature-rich h omes and porches are wonderful additions. Robert Stern, dean of the Yale School of Architecture, sees the return as a desire for social connection. As he describes, a porch friendlies up a house. Stern was the architect who made porches a n integral part of Celebration, Florida Disneys master-planned c ommunity. Interestingly enough porches go back to the earliest days of our countrys history. As Americans developed their own distinct architectural s tyles, porches were essential. Before air conditioning, porchesa llowed for the enjoyment of a cool breeze. Many houses built in the mid-1800s incorporated the popular w rap-around porch so often used in Victorian-era homes and guaranteed a breeze no matter which way the wind was blowing. Porches are not completely i nside and not completely outside they offer a transitional space. Tooo ften today we get sucked into our sealed, air conditioned homes full of n oisy technology from televisions to computers. Wheres the treasured interaction that characterized earlier times? You dont dress up to enjoy porch time. Furniture is comforta ble, not fancy. You can enjoy a porch from early morning to late atn ight. A porch is always open. Whats not to love? I loved reading about Claude S tephens, who is the education director at an arboretum in Louisville, Ky., who has adopted a porch-sitting alias, Crow Hollister. He is founder of the Professional P orch Sitters Union Local 1339. The organization is about not planninga nything or even deciding anything. A meeting can be called at any time a nd attendance is optional. Now thats my kind of organization. So celebrate your porch. Its a good thing.

Museum realizes a long-held vision T he American Beach Museum will officially open on S aturday with a grand opening ceremony from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. at the American Beach Community Center, 1600 Julia St. The opening exhibit, The Sands of Time: An American Beach Story, is the realization o f a longtime dream held by MaVynee Betsch, who passed a way in 2005. Known far and wide as the Beach Lady, Betsch was a historian, activist and environmentalist. She was also the great-granddaughter of American Beachs founder, A.L. Lewis, president of the Afro American Life Insurance Co. Lewis founded American B each in 1935 as a place of relaxation and recreation for African Americans. Providing an escape from the stress of racism and segregation for generations of devoted beachgoers, American Beach quickly became both a desirable destination and a richly evolving c ommunity on Amelia Island. For decades, the Beach Lady was an iconic figure on the island, championing environmental causes and the preservation of the islands history, culture and stories. The success of American Beach and Betschs passion for the community and its heritage is a captivating story that makes for a fascinating exhibit at the n ew museum. Carol J. Alexander, the project director and curator of the museum, said, ... following in the Beach Ladys footsteps in the sand has been a spiritual and dedicated journey. This inaugural exhibition has been guided by her notes on pages, h er voice in the wind over the ocean and her spiritual energy t hat lingers in every crystal of sand on American Beach. It is an honor and privilege for me as her spiritual daughter to guide, curate and manage this project. The inaugural exhibition, The Sands of Time: An American Beach Story, will feat ure the history of American Beach, photographs, a filmed t our of the beach by the Beach Lady, along with her signature seven-foot locks of hair. Dr. Johnnetta B. Cole, sister of the Beach Lady, will speak at the opening ceremony. My sister, MaVynee Oshun Betsch, The Beach Lady, wasa force! Without her vision, determination and bodaciousn ess, in cahoots with those whom were willing to join her in a righteous struggle, there would be no American Beach as we know and enjoy it today. It is with deep pride and joy that all of us in the A.L. Lewis family celebrate the opening of this museum. We are grateful t o everyone who has worked to make the dream of this museu m a reality S UBMITTED The American Beach Museum will officially open on Saturday with a ceremony from 1 1 a.m.-4 p.m. at American Beach Community Center, 1600 Julia St., above.

First Baptist celebrates 155 years M IC K I SMITH For the News-Leader F irst Baptist Church o n South Eighth Street in Fernandina Beach is celebrating its 155th birthday during them onth of September Each Sunday will highlight a period of time in the histor y of the chur ch. Sunday, Sept. 7 will featur e photo displays spanning the years 1859-1909, fr om the time the trustees for David Yulees Florida Railroad Company deeded a 50by 100-foot lot at the corner of Fourth and Calhoun streets to the Baptist Chur ch for the sum of $1. Florida had become a U.S. T er ritory in 1821 and that same year, the first Baptist Church constituted in Florida was located in Nassau County, near Hilliard. In 1845, Florida was admitted to the Union as the 27th state. In 1851, David Levy Y ulee and his Florida Railr oad Co. acquired the land of the present-day downtown and moved Old Town to this new town. Six years later, trustees for the railroad company deeded the lot at the cor ner of Fourth and Calhoun str eets. Geor ge Call, the attor ney for the railroad, was a Baptist and was a leader in getting a church built on the site. In 1860, Dr. James Kirk Mendenhall became the first pastor of the new church, where he served from 186061. The Civil War caused many to evacuate the town from 1861-65, but in 1866 the railroad resumed operations and most citizens returned to Fer nandina Beach. From 1867-72, Fernandinas Baptist Church is listed in the minutes of the Santa Fe River Baptist Association. Leonard Dozier, the churchs clerk, records ther e ar e 15 members and that $5 was given to missions. In the 1870s, ser vices were not held regularly and when held, may have been supported by Northern churches, such as the Sabbath School of the First Baptist Church of New Jersey, which sent a silver communion set to the Baptist Church of Fernandina in 1874. From 1879-81, worship ser vices wer e held on the first and second Sundays of each month, but in 1887 the wooden church at Fourth and Calhoun streets burned to the ground along with all the r ecor ds. Mrs. J.Y Pur vis witnessed the fire. That October, the church members sold the lot for $500. The following year, R.S. Lukenbill, a Baptist, arrived from Missouri to work witht he railr oad. He rallied members who wer e meeting in homes and incorporated the church. Together, the members purchased a lot at Fifth and Alachua str eets for $800. J.G. Freeman, a member and Sunday School superintend ent, built a modest wooden church on the site. The church records from that time show there were 40 members. Late that fall, the second Y ellow Fever epidemic hit Fernandina and for three months the town was under quarantine no one is allowed to enter or leave and the mail is fumigated. R.S. Lukenbill died and his funeral held in the uncompleted church. His son, E.D. Lukenbill, complet ed the white wooden structur e at Fifth and Alachua and by 1893, the church had grown to 67 members. In 1902, they purchased an adjoining lot for $750 and two years later, the church paid off its indebtedness. There wer e now 119 members and offerings of $1,584.45. In 1906, the chur ch was able to purchase another adjoining lot for $300. To learn more about the month-long celebration of First Baptist Churchs 115th birthday, visit www.fbfirst.com or call 261-3617. The chur ch is located at 1600 S. Eighth St. This sketch is of the first Baptist Church erected in Fernandina Beach at the corner of Fourth and Calhoun str eets, left. It bur ned to the ground i n 1887. The lot was sold and anothe r purchased at Fifth and Alachua s tr e ets, wher e the second Baptist Chur c h was constr u cted. R.S. Lukenbill, above, a Baptist fr om Missouri, was instrumental in rallying church members to incorporate the church and build the new sanctuar y below.

NASSAU COUNTY ANIMAL SERVICES Bocephus is a handsome, m ellow fellow who was found as a stray, apparently an a bandoned hunting dog. But he came to live with an owner who loved him very much and gave him excellent care and training. She faced health issues and couldnt give him as much attention a s he deserved, so she reluctantly decided Bocephus n eeds a person or family who can give him more attention, and a fenced-in yard. Hes very intelligent and hes an excellent walker, because he went on lots of walks since he had no yard to run in. He n ever chased after dogs, cats or people. Hes also houset rained and has a great disposition. He does well with other dogs that match his mellow personality he lived with a senior dog and they got along very well. Hes a Treeing Walker Coonhound/ B eagle mix, and we estimate hes about 8 years old. He s eems to be in excellent health, and youll love his handsome face and smile! Hes affectionate and hes a leaner, who will gently lean in on you to soak up all thel oving he can get. He will come to you with vet records and a great letter from his former owner telling you all about him. We think Bocephus would be a wonderful companion for a singlep erson, a family or seniors. He knows how to be a great f amily dog and hes eager to love you! Cactus Flower is an absolute beauty! Shes a S iamese mix, about 2 or 3 years old, and while we cant say for sure that shes a purebred, she certainly has the regal markings. She has lovely blue eyes and a soft, luxurious buff and black coat. Shesa large cat and she was found as a stray, but she didnt e njoy the experience she was a bit prickly when she first arrived, but we knew she would bloom with some security and TLC. She certainly did, just like a cactus flower. Shes a sweet cat and she doesnt ever want to be back on the streets she is hoping f or a forever home where she can get lots of love and attention. You need to see her in person to fully appreciate what a beauty she is! Y ou can see bios, pictures a nd videos of our adoptable d ogs and cats at our website, NassauHumaneSociety.com.
