ANGELA DAUGHTRY News-Leader Westrec Marines contract to manage the city-owned Fernandina Harbor Marina was renewed by city commissioners at their Oct. 7 meeting with some significant changes. The management and lease agreement, which was originally a five-year contract when first written in 2009, w as changed to a year-to-year contract, as conceded by commissioners at an earlier meeting. A s it reads after its renewal, the m anagement and lease agreement can be terminated without cause at 90 days notice by the city or Westrec Marine. Westrec Vice President Gary Groenewold had asked in an April letter to City Manager Joe Gerrity for a three-year contract with two one-year options to follow. Westrec also offered to reduce its staff and close the marina at 6 p.m. d uring four winter months, rather than at 8 p.m., at a savings of $23,700 for the city, which the city accepted in the final contract. The city still covers all repair and maintenance costs for the marina, as well as personnel, insurance and administrative costs, which is an annual fixed fee of $95,000 in monthly installments. The city also pays a variable fee equal to 1 percent of the marinas $1.00 BETH JONES/NEWS-LEADER Yulee High School Homecoming Queen Bailey Wall and King Dante Owens were honored at halftime of the Hor nets football game Oct. 3, left.

CHIEF J AMES T. HURLEY Fernandina Beach Police The Fernandina Beach Police Depar tment began its very successful Shop with Cops pr ogram in 2004 and now ser ves mor e than 150 local school children each year, providing the opportunity to shop with a police officer at the Amelia Island Walmart store, while insuring that many of our underprivileged kids experience the joy of Christmas. This unique program provides an oppor tunity for chil dren in our community to spend some valuable time interacting with our uniformed police officers in a happy and positive environment. This kind of interaction is an important step in teaching some disaf fected kids that police officers are guardians of the young and should be tr usted in times of difficulty. Donations are collected all year long and every penny donated translates dir ectly to Christmas toys and much needed clothing. Our program participants ar e selected by local school guidance counselors, who make sur e that only the truly needy are given the opportunity to participate in this special program, which was inspired by local resident Don Monahan, who continues to act as our volunteer chair. Please call Don directly to invite him to speak to your church or civic group about the Shop with Cops program. He can be reached at 277-2091. Consider donating to this very worthwhile community pr ogram. The pr ogram is administer ed by the Fernandina Beach Police Foundation, which is controlled by a Board of Dir ectors comprised of Amelia Island residents. The Fernandina Beach Police Foundation isa 501(c3 ofit or ganiza tion and all donations to the program may be tax deductible. Donations may be sent to: Shop with Cops, Fernandina Beach Police Foundation, 1525 Lime St., Fernandina Beach, FL 32034. There is no doubt that this program provides some measure of comfort and hope to many of our young people, as well as their parents and guardians. As we notice each year many of these needy chil dren put others ahead of themselves, demonstrating gr eat compassion for loved ones and understanding for their own social condition. Many pass by traditional toys and games, opt ing for essential clothing and household items. The community suppor t has been inspirational over the past decade, while it is my hope that our wonderful community continues to champion this worthy cause for many years to come. T o view our most r ecent Shop with Cops video, visit the Police Foundation website at www .fb-pf.or g. Our next event will be held on Thursday, Dec. 11 at W almart.

David Hallman, 57, who held t he job since 2007, died Oct. 6. ere going to take our t ime to find an interim attorney, but weve got people we can r each out to if we have a legal question or concern that needs to be addressed, said County Manager Ted Selby. Nassau County Commissioners agreed Monday night to use local attorney Mollie Garrett for the day-to-day legal routine operations at the County Attorneys office. Paulo Soria, a ttorney, and Nabors, Giblins and Nickerson have offered their legal services if the county needs additional assistance. Garrett once worked as an assistant attorney for the county and previously filled in for Hallman, including last summer during a discussion about a tenn is club proposed for the Amelia National subdivision. Hallman recused himself from talks because that is where he lived. St. Johns Assistant County Attorney Soria, 30, graduated from the University of Florida in 2010 and worked as an intern in t he Nassau attorneys office as well as part-time until 2013. Paolo worked with David as an intern and I know (David thought highly of his work, said Selby. We have a good working relationship and as busy as we all are, I will step up and provide a s much help as I can, said Soria last week. The county has an ongoing relationship with Nabors, Giblin & Nickerson in Tallahassee. The firm specializes in local government law and Selby said the county could use the firm to a ssist with legal issues on an as-needed basis. Selby said the board is likely to consider whether to use a search firm or look for an attorney without outside help. All I know for sure at the moment is that this is an important decision that we dont w ant to go rushing into, said Selby.

This is the tale of two cities, located in a state that is hardly a dog. In fact, there is plenty of tail-wagging in the state of Texas from the joy of rampant prosperity. Boasting one o f the strongest economies in the U.S., Texas endorses small government, low taxes and free markets. The recipe is working there, and in other states employing the same economic principles. Texas continues to lure businesses from other s tates, like California. Meanwhile, its oil and gas industry has exploded. Two cities embodying this prosperity are San Antonio and Austin, the state capital. They are modern cities with an eclectic flare. Construction is on s teroids in Austin. Enormous cranes dot the citys skyline. Four high-rise hotels are planned for the downtown district alone. Office buildi ngs abound like bluebonn ets, the state flower. S an Antonio is now the seventh-largest city in terms o f population in the country. Its growth and tourism are fed by a stream of riches the San Antonio River, as it branches out into the RiverW alk. The River Walk is a result o f innovative planning and coordination between the public and private sectors. It offers a Disney-type atmosphere in a near-tropical setting. The blending of r etail s hops, hotels and nature is s omething to behold. River t axis and tour boats busily motor up and back as tourists get a taste of the areas 400year history. The River Walk is a fascinating cr eation, with mon strous limestone rocks and l oads of concrete tastefully f used into the walls of the s tructure. Water falls, statues and stone bridges adorn the area. Its particularly impressive when you consider how cities, b oth big and small, struggle with harboring the potential of native waterways. Most do it p oorly. Fernandina Beach city officials have grappled over plans for improving the waterfront in this picturesque town. Revamping a silted-in marina has proven to bea difficult task. For many years now. I n neighboring Jacksonville, city planners there have wrestled with extracting economic benefits from the St. Johns River. A n ear-empty marina, vacant h igh-rise condominiums and a decimated Jacksonville Landing are the best of the c itys efforts thus far. Its eye-opening to see what is happening and succeeding in other places. Jacksonville and FernandinaB each could learn from a place like San Antonio. T aking a natural resource and converting it into an aesthetically appealing masterpiece like the River Walk is a source of scenery, pride and income for San Antonio. It has become the top touristd estination in the state. T his tale has a happy end i ng. Its exciting and refreshing to witness economic prosperity. So many places are lacking it. Texas has a lot of it. But then again, everything is big in T exas. Steve Nicklas is a financial a dvisor with a major U.S. f ir m.

During the 2014 session of the Florida Legislature, Bean s ponsored a bill cosponsored by Adkins designating this portion of A1A in memory of Gibbs, a Fernandina Beach resident and graduate of Fernandina Beach High School who died in 2013 after many years in public service and community i nvolvement. Adkins said, Francis Gibbs is a local hero who lived and worked to share his values and his love for his community throughout his long years in public service. Francisn ever forgot who he was or where he came from and always had time to catch up on local issues in Nassau County. Francis was also a warrior whether in Washington working in the halls of Congress or in Florida with t he Florida Department of Transportation. Francis was a leader no matter where he landed; everyone grew to appreciate his keen intellect and ability to understand a problem and get it solved. I am grateful to Francis for his efforts to help us get A1A r epaired, to save the St. Johns Ferry and many other issues too numerous to mention. Francis loved his family and his home here in Nassau County and contributed greatly to all those he touched.

One recent day I woke up and yes, it was autumn! Seems like the hot weather would never end, the biting bugs would never go away a nd the tourists would forever be filling our beaches. But then one day it was fall! Finally I could go out in the garden and enjoy the experience. For many weeks Ive been selectively ignoring my planted areas. Its been just too bloody hot to deal w ith and besides, the tomatoes and beans have been long gone and the zinnia flowers I planted to replace them have been all harvested weeks ago. With the crops all finished, there has been no real inducement to visit this area of my yard, hidden from t he backyard by tall bottlebrush shrubs and from the front yard by a fence. When the weather finally cooled down and I ventured here again, what a mess! The dead zinnia plants were five feet high, but towering even higher were a number of n ameless (to me were stalky and more than six feet tall. And the thorn-less blackberry vines that should have been pruned back after they produced, had been s orely neglected as well and formed a mass of long stalks reaching into the raised beds and adding t heir own chaos to the fray. And over on the other side of the house my other plot of flowers for cutting has also turned to ruin. Yes there were still some good zinnia flowers on a few of the stalks, but like t he other side garden this one too has been taken over by weeds. And dont even get me started on the butterfly garden. A few of the hardy plants had managed to flower but here too weeds had taken up most of the space. Worse yet the heavy rains this summer h ad also created growth spurts in weedy vines and the pineapple guava and chaste trees and the hydrangea and bottlebrush bushes were all getting covered and shaded with vines. So, one fall day when the temperature at 7 a.m. was f inally less than 80 degrees, I jumped out of bed, rolled upm y sleeves and set to work to m ake things right. About t ime, my husband Bucko mumbled under his breath. Hed been dutifully mowing the lawn and trimming the areas of yard I had notc laimed for myself at least once a week all summer. As a good husband he didnt nag m e about my neglect all summ er. But now, with few words said, I knew he was elated. It took two and a half hours to clear the giant weeds. I skipped my water aerobics class that day, but got my exer cise nonetheless a s I huffed and puffed and y anked out weeds, and d ragged or car r ied 10 or more large tubs full of plants and root balls off into the woods to decompose. It may have been cooler weather but befor e long I was sweating like a champ. While I was doing this manual labor though, my m ind was full of fun thoughts. I watched the green and Cuban anoles, both species, scampering up the fence at my approach. I listened to hawks scr eaming over head and the cackle of a startled kingfisher and tried to locate their landing spots in the woods. And while I worked the backyar d bunny was nearby watching me from under the hedge and maybe hopingI d come out with some car r ot trimmings like Ive been doing recently. Finally, at last, the planting beds were empty once again except for two late blooming zinnia plants that wer e still producing flowers. The blackber r y vines had been t rimmed and the r emaining strong canes were affixed to the fence. The weedy smilax and V irginia creeper vines were gone from the shrubs and the weeding ef for ts in the b utter f ly gar den r evealed vol unteer milkweed plants that now could grow to their full potential. So, I was finished. But r eally? It doesn t take a gar dener ver y long to start filling up empty spaces once again. Befor e the week was out I h ad planted mor e than 100 f reesia and ranunculus bulbs in one side bed and soon enough sweet pea flowering vines will be planted in another. I wonder, should I also plant some onion sets? And what about lettuce and s pinach surely that would b e good in the side yard r aised beds? And so another cycle begins again. Fall is a great time to be out enjoying our yards, and what better way to do it than by watching things gr ow where they should (and i gnoring once again the w eeds that will no doubt be b ack again too). And, as for the backyar d bunny soon enough I know Ill be complaining about it eating my lettuce just like last year. Some things never change. Pat Foster-Turley is a zoolog ist on Amelia Island.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 7A W EDNESDAY O CTOBER 15, 2014 OPINION News-Leader VIEWPOINT /R ON P AUL /F ORMER C ONGRESSMAN Liberty, not government, key to containing Ebola A ccording to F orbes m agazine, at least 5 ,000 Americans contacted health car e providers fearful they had contracted Ebola after the media r epor t ed that someone with Ebola had enter ed the United States. All 5,000 cases turned out to be false alarms. In fact, despite all the hype about Ebola generated by the media and government officials, as of thisw riting there has only been one identified case o f someone contracting Ebola within the U nited States. Ebola is a dangerous disease, but it is very dif ficult to contract. Ebola spr e ads via dir e ct contact with the vir us. This usually occurs through contact with bodily fluids. While the Ebola virus may remain on dry surfaces for several hours, it can be destroyed by commond isinfectants. So commonsense precautions s hould be able to pr event Ebola fr om spr eadi ng. It is no coincidence that many of those countries suf fering fr o m mass Ebola out br eaks have also suf fer e d fr om the plagues of dictatorship and war The devastation wrought by years of war has made it impossible for these countries to develop moder n health care i nfrastr ucture. For example, the 14-year civil w ar in Liberia left that countr y with almost no t rained doctors. Those who could leave the war-torn country were quick to depart. Sadly, American foreign aid props up dictators and encourages militarism in these countries. President Obamas response to the Ebola crisis has been to send 3,000 troops to West African countries to help with tr eatment and containment. Obama did not bother to seek congr essional authorization for this overseas military deployment. Nor did he bother to tell the American people how long the mission would last, how much it would cost or what section of the Constitution authorizes him to send U.S. troops on humanitarian missions. The people of Liberia and other countries would be better of f if the U.S. gover nment left them alone. Leave it to private citizens to invest in African business and trade with the African people. Private investment and trade would help these countries develop thriving free-market economies capable of sustaining a modern health care infrastructure. Legitimate concerns about protecting airline passengers from those with Ebola or other infectious diseases can best be addressed by returning responsibility for passenger safety to the airlines. After all, private a irlines have a greater incentive than does g overnment to protect their passengers from c ontagious diseases. They can do so while providing a safe means of travel for those seeking medical treatment in the United States. This would remove the incentive to lie about exposur e to the vir us among those seeking to come here for treatment. Ebola patients in the U.S. have received per mission from the Food and Drug Administration to use unapproved drugs. This is a positive development. But why should those suffering from potentially lethal diseases have to seek special permission from federal bureaucrats to use treatments their physicians think might help? And does anyone doubt that the FDAs cumbersome approval pr ocess has slowed down the development of tr eatments for Ebola? Fir estone Tire and Rubber Co. has successfully contained the spread of Ebola among 80,000 people living in Harbel, the Liberian town housing employees of Firestones Liberian plant and their families. In March, a fter the wife of a Firestone employee develo ped Ebola symptoms, Firestone constructed i ts own treatment center and implemented a program of quarantine and treatment. Firestone has successfully kept the Ebola virus from spreading among its employees. As of this writing, ther e ar e only thr ee Ebola patients at Firestones treatment facility. Firestones success in containing Ebola shows that, far fr om justifying new state action, the Ebola crises demonstrates that individuals acting in the free market can do a better job of containing Ebola than can governments. The Ebola crisis is also another example of how U.S. foreign aid harms the ver y people we ar e claiming to help. Limiting government at home and abroad is the best way to pr otect health and fr eedom. Ron Paul is a for mer congressman and presidential candidate. He can be r eached at VoicesofLiberty.com.

Who would imagine that a grown, semimacho, clod-kicking, cornbread-loving man would sit and watch spangle-clad men and women dance around for an hour or two? T hats what I asked myself about eight y ears ago. T oday it s still har d for me to say d -d-dancing within earshot of other men, thinking they might take away my Man Card. But because confession is good for the soul, and guests on the Dr. Phil show, I admit openly andw ith uncoerced consent t hat I watch Dancing with t he Stars, or at least par t of it, most every week. It wasnt my idea originally. It was my wifes idea.I wouldve preferred watching Dirty Jobs you know, where some guyn amed Mike Rowe puts on h ip boots and slogs into a b og to find out where crustaceans live. Or he crawls up under a locomotive to lear n what all goes into maintain ing an Amtrak train that charges twice as much and takes four times as long as a plane. Now, thats a mans show. But Dirty Jobs was canceled, and Dancing with the Stars is still goings trong. Maybe that means that TV watchers p refer tight-fitting pants to loose-fitting hip b oots. If it had been up to me, I would have sur f ed the channels to find an old John Wayne movie whose plot I had forgotten. (Memory is the second thing to go with age, and I cant remember the first thing.) Anything with John W ayne in it is a man s s how. Id rather turn over to that sports channel that r eruns the college football games I saw on TV the Saturday before. Thats a mans show. Id rather watch the latest debate between an elephant and a donkey running for a spot in the nations jungle without a clue about what they could do if they got it. Forget I said that. Id rather watch dancing. And I have been watching. I also have been reading a newspaper or a magazine or a book, catching up on the latest ways to conserve water. I could have gone to another r oom to r ead in private, but my r ecliner is in the keeping area of our house, an area I didn t know existed until we got one. So Ive stayed with the TV and the r ecliner But I didnt want to miss Tommy Chong of Cheech and Chong fame as he shook his 76-year-old hips, gliding the floor with a beautiful blonde like two wheel dollies on greased concrete. I didn t want to miss actor Alfonso Ribeiro busting out the Carlton, which, if Chong tried it, would mean emer gency shoulder sur ger y the next day. I didn t want to miss Randy Couture, the icon of Mixed Martial Arts and Ultimate Fighting Championship as he pretended to dance. Now theres a real man, that Randy Coutur e, showing people of like gender that its OK to wear tight britches and spangles and flutter ar ound the r oom like a butter fly, a wounded butter fly but a butterfly. I feel much better now. Thanks for reading my confession.

For example, when an acre of beautiful old oaks at Amelia City were removed to make room for a gas station/convenience store, island residents became vocal on the need for tree protection. But it was too late! Some six years earlier, when a strong tree protection ordinance was considered by the county, residents stayed h ome allowing a West Side contingent to overpower the small band of Sierrans trying to get i t passed. Had the island residents who were upset over the loss of the Amelia City oaks supported tree protection years ago, most of those old oaks would still be there. Similarly, the current brouhaha over the Nassau Ocean Highway and Port Authority plans for expansion could have been avoided h ad the public paid attention to the election of port authority commissioners. T here are a number of environmental issues that impact Nassau and Florida as a whole that will be decided at the polls in the next four weeks that impact potential crises. One issue is Amendment 1 on the ballot: Florida Water and Land Legacy Constitutional Amendment. If voters do not adopt the amendm ent, the prospects for restoring and protecting Floridas waters and for land acquisition w ill remain at the mercy of the legislature, which has not been friendly to the environment in recent years. Amendment 1 gives Florida voters an opportunity to keep drinking water clean, prot ect our rivers, lakes and springs and protect o ur beaches and shores. It will direct one-third of existing fees collected by the state when r e al estate is sold to protect natural areas and wildlife habitat and preserve our water quality. Fees on real estate transactions, aka doc s tamps, have been allocated to water and land c onservation since 1968. Yet since 2009, these fees have been diverted by the legislature to the states general revenues while funding for water and land conservation projects has been slashed by more than 95 percent. Amendment 1 would provide $10 billion over the 20-year life of the measure, all without any tax increase. If the amendment is approved, there will h ave to be an implementing bill that creates the laws that will carry out the intent of the a mendment. Even if the amendment passes, there is no guarantee that an implementing bill will be passed soon. Florida legislators are not known for their support of environmental causes. And this is the second issue voters must decide in this election: The makeup of the T allahassee government. The current government administration a nd legislature has failed in environmental protection. Funding has been cut to the point where it is meaningless. The popular Florida Forever program has been defunded; state leaders have slashed its money by more than 95 percent, putting more than a million acres of open spaces, from wetlands to prairies to b eaches vulnerable to development. The Florida Department of Environmental P rotection (DEP employees fired and those who were doing their jobs trying to stop polluters from harming Floridas environment punished. (The number of actions the DEP has taken against p olluters has plummeted by more than 85 perc ent in the last four years.) Tallahassee has worked to weaken urban fer t ilizer rules that protect our estuaries. The Florida coast is facing a massive red tide algal bloom that could devastate tourism and dimini sh recreational fishing, yet our legislators still o ppose strong water-quality standards proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency. Florida is on the front lines of climate change. Coastal property owners are on the verge of seeing their flood insurance premiums rise as seawater inches higher. The landmark National Climate Assessment, released earlier this year, warned that just inches of s ea level rise will impair the capacity of stormwater drainage systems to empty into t he ocean. Yet the state government keeps its head in the sand and leaders say climate change is hypothetical. No political entity local or state has taken action concerning our finite fresh water. If nothing is done now to conserve that resource, large increases in water bills are on t he way and no public outcry will stop it (just as Florida Public Utilitys rate increase was a pproved despite community opposition). Its not just Republicans who are to blame. Two sitting Democratic legislators I have spoken with rolled their eyes when I brought up environmental issues. A Democratic candidate for state office told me environmental protection is a dirty word (siconmental c aucus of the Florida Democratic Party asked office holders and seekers to sign on, but only a small fraction did so. Because of this disinterest in environmental issues, we are headed for a series of crises. The time to deal with these issues is now, while they are manageable. We need to elect p eople to public office who are committed to p rotecting our environment (not just committed to protecting their political careers). We may need new people to r u n for office; we may need a new green party to mobilize this protection because the existing parties arent. A nd we need to pass Amendment 1. Now! VIEWPOINT /R OBERT M. W EINTRAUB /A MELIA I SLAND Vote Yes on Amendment 1 VOICE OF THE PEOPLE C C i i t t y y e e l l e e c c t t i i o o n n The time is nearing when the citizens and voters of Fernandina Beach have some crucial decisions to elect candidates who will strive to put our city going Forward and leave those who don t think we need to do the important issues. V oting times ar e not dif ficult these days, we have absentee, early voting six days starting on Tuesday and ending on Nov. 1 from 10 a.m. till 6 p.m. at four locations: MLK Recreational Center, 1200 Elm St.; James S. Page Governmental Complex Y ulee; Callahan County Building, Mickler Street, Callahan; and Hillar d Community Center Pecan Str eet. These are for early voting. On Tuesday, Nov. 4 you vote at your regular polling locations. Super visor of Elections V icki Cannon and her staff are giving the voters and poll workers the tools that few of our counties have in Florida. The staf f and poll workers are the best trained and the voters need to vote and help the city get through the difficult decisions. I attended one for um so far it was well attended, the candidates wer e given a chance to r espond to the well-thought-out questions and most of them did. The next forum will be at City Hall on Thursday at the chambers. The local chapter of the AARP had a Meet and Greet informal chance for the voters to ask questions and meet the candidates onT uesday at the Council on Aging building. Again, getting back to having a good business appr oach, the city can encourage and not discourage businesses from coming here and locating their businesses. We need to look at all the possibilities of getting businesses (large and small) plus developers to put their money and tax dollars in Fernandina. That brings back past ef for ts to open Alachua Str eet and Fr ont Street for new developments, and that needs to get done quickly. There are people waiting for this to happen, our commissioners need to open the street and area for development and these improvements will happen. This will increase our tax dollars, and make the blighted area more productive. This was part of the For war d Fer nandina plan, and it also would benefit the devel opment of the water front park and CRA area, plus the downtown area. The railroad and city would become a joint effort along with the developers to increase needed tax revenue and make a dif fer ence to the entire area. As my infamous College Pr ofessor would say Things may look bad and they probably are just think, they could be a lot worse. John P.

N N e e w w l l y y w w e e d d a a l l t t e e r r c c a a t t i i o o n n According to a city police report, a 41-year-old man from Providence, R.I., was arrested at the Blue Heron Inn, Fernandina Beach, on Sept. 26 for batteri ng his bride of two days. Police were called to the inn on South Seventh Street the morning of Sept. 26 by staff that said a man and woman had been involved in a domestic dispute the night before. A female guest had approached staff at that time, telling them she had been injured by her husband. P olice subsequently interviewed the couple separately t he next day. T he woman, who was d escribed as upset and crying, told police she and her husband were married two days ago and were on their honeymoon. She stated they had bothh ad a lot to drink while in the downtown Fernandina Beach a rea, and when they got back to t he inn the husband became u pset and pushed (the woman into the pool. The alter c ation continued when the newlyweds returned to their room, where the husband r epor tedly grabbed his wife s ar m, causing a large bruise. During the fight, a doork nob r epor tedly was damaged a nd flower ar r angements wer e thrown about the room, after which the husband disappeared and did not return until morning. After being r ead his rights, the husband admitted to hav ing pushed his new wife into the pool the night befor e and t hr owing the flowers. The man also reportedly stated he was upset about some money that was lost in the room. The man was arrested for domestic batter y a misde meanor, and taken to Nassau County Jail. E E l l d d e e r r l l y y n n e e g g l l e e c c t t A man and woman from Yulee were arrested by Nassau County deputies Sept. 22 for neglect of an elderly woman in their car e, according to a police r e port. Deputies were called to Baptist Medical Center Nassau after a doctor contacted authorities in reference to the poor health of a 76-year -old patient. The treating physician told police the victim had been br ought in by r escue personnel after she was found unresponsive by her caregivers, according to the report. On examination, she was found to be suffering from major malnutrition, weighing only 77 pounds, and had a body temperatur e of only 88 degr ees. The victim was also suf fering from bedsores, bruises and a urinary tract infection. Due to her body temperature, emergency personnel believed she may have been deceased. The physician told police she d id not believe the patient would die within 24 hours, but c ould not say what would happen after that time. She also said the patients condition was the result of neglect, and that the bedsores, which were not being cared for properly, were the result of the patients staying ino ne position for extended periods. T he patient had reportedly been in the care of Lennon Scott Hayman, 52, and Angelica Christine Holcombe, 42, where they were providing 24-hour care for the victim at their Yulee home at 85517 Haddock Road. Hayman and Holcombe initially denied a request by police t o inspect the victims living conditions, but allowed police to come by the next day. According to the report, on inspection the residence had an extremely pungent odor of urine and cleaning supplies. The room where the victim had been staying consisted of a f uton couch, a dresser with a television set on it and an electric floor fan ... as the room did not have central air or heat. During questioning later that day, Holcombe said she and Hayman provided 24-hour care for the victim, which included bathing, changing diapers, feeding, and cleaning her room. Holcombe also told police the v ictim received money through Social Security ($1,800 a month p lus a pension through her d eceased husband, which was d eposited into a joint account with Holcombe and the victim. Those funds were reportedly supposed to be used to provide care for the victim. Haymana lso stated he provided care for the victim while Holcombe was a t work. P olice determined that H olcombe and Haymans lack of care was the direct cause of the victim s physical condition, and that they failed to take action in providing the necessary medical ser vices that wer e essen tial to her well-being. Both were arrested for f elony neglect of an elderly per s on without gr e at bodily har m.

Influenza is a serious disease that can lead to h ospitalization and sometimes even death. F lorida Department of Health, Nassau County recommends all Floridians six months of age and older receive a flu shot each year.

I t can take up to two w eeks after vaccination for a ntibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against influenza virus infection. In the meantime, you are still at risk for getting the flu. That is why it is important to get vaccinated early in thef all, before the flu season reall y gets under way. S ymptoms of the flu may include headache, fever, sever e cough, r u nny nose or body aches. Contact your health care provider immediately if symptoms appear The depar tment of fers the following pr evention tips: Get vaccinated every y ear since flu viruses change. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. W ash your hands often with soap and water If soap and water are not available,u se an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. A v oid touching your eyes, nose and mouth since germs are spread this way. A void close contact with sick people. If you or your children ar e sick with a flu-like illness, s tay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone, unless you need med ical car e. Flu vaccines ar e of fer ed in many locations, including doctor offices, clinics, health departments, retail stores, pharmacies, health centers and thr ough many employ ers. Recently, the health depar tment, school district and Healthy Schools, LLC, partnered to offer the nasal flu mist to all schoolage children in the public schools.

We just couldn't finish some of our more productive drives. "Ribault is a very talented team, on defense in particular. Our defense, I thought, gave us a great chance to win the game, but on offense, we just couldn't sustain anything over the course of the game. We also had a few injuries, but I was proud of how some of the other guys stepped up." Dennis Borregginne anchored the defense with 11 tackles, four assists and a quarterback sack. Christian Anderson had six stops. Isiah Leverett had five tackles and a sack. Jamari Peacock had 15 carries for 68 rushing yards; Kydrin Huguley had three for 24 yards; A.J.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK NSFA hosting 28th annual trout tourneyThe popular Nassau Sport Fishing Association 28th annual Trout T ournament will get underway Nov. 7 with a mandatory captain's meeting. Fishing teams can also sign up for the event at the meeting, which will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the T iger Point Marina. Entry fee is $120 per boat with cash prizes being awarded for several species of backwater and nearshore saltwater gamefish, including sea trout, flounder and redfish. The most coveted award typically goes to the angler who catches the largest sea trout. During last year's big event Ed Pennington weighed in the largest sea trout of the event at 5.12 pounds. Robin Pennington, Jason Pennington and Brayden Rosenbatt were also fishing aboard the winning boat. "We anchored up at the 14th Street Bridge and drifted live shrimp deep all day," Jason Pennington said. "Dad hooked the big trout when the tide started back in and was running strong during mid afternoon. I actually thought that Dad had hooked a big r ed as his big fish pulled real hard and stayed deep. However, when the big speck came to the surface, we all became real excited and I told Dad not to lose that big trout." The fishy waters of Egans Creek offer excellent sea trout fishing during the fall fishing season when schooling mullet and a big run of shrimp are the main attraction for tournament-size sea trout. However, there are several other Amelia Island hot spots to tempt big specks, including the mouth of Sawpit Creek where the Nassau Bridge creates a perfect ambush point for big sea trout. The Shave Bridge also harbors a deep pass with bridge pilings where sea trout school when a big feed is on and the tide is r unning. Also included are the St. OUTDOORSTerry Lacoss OUTDOORS4BWEDNESDAY, OCTOBER1 5, 2014 SPORTS News-Leader Marys jetty rocks, the little jetties located at the southern tip of Amelia Island, the deep channels located at the foot of both Amelia Island paper mills and Tiger Basin. A favorite fishing technique for catching big trout r emains fishing with large live baits, including shrimp, croaker, menhaden, mullet and large shrimp if available. Live baits can be drifted under a float or simply free lined without a weight into the fishy waters. Casting lures into these same sea trout waters also will produce tournament-size sea trout. When a flood tide is taking place, casting a surface plug including the Chug Bug or Zara Spook will certainly land tournament-size sea trout into your boat's live well. Other lures that work well for sea trout include the 52MR Mirr-0-Lure in the mullet color pattern and suspending minnow-type plugs like the rapala Count Down minnow. High tide arrives at 9:31 a.m. on tournament day with a low tide taking place at 3:32 p.m. There will be three places paid in the largest sea trout category with $575 for first place, $300 for second and $150 for third. In the threetrout aggregate category there are also three places with $575 for first, $300 for second and $150 for third. Finally, $575 will be paid for first-place slam, $300 for second and $150 for third. In the slam category the heaviest weight of one redfish, one sea trout and one flounder is calculated. Y outh fishermen 16 and under will be fishing for larges sea trout with first place paying $100, second $80, third $70, fourth $50 and fifth-place youth will win a brand new fishing rod and r eel combo. Lady angler honors will also be up for grabs with $100 being awarded to the firstplace lady angler 17 years old and older weighing in the largest sea trout. Secondplace lady angler will take home $50. All cash awards are based on a minimum of 38 paid tournament boats. V isit www.nsfafish.net or call Marvin Leininger at (904) 923-7201.

A c heerful, yellow cottage on North F ourth Street has an amazing history. Built in the final year of the C ivil War, the charming little cottage is a one-and-a-half story house best described as Folk Victorian. It is not as grand as many of its neigh-b ors built during the islands Golden Age, but has an important and impressive history. At one time it was the home of the Sisters of St. Joseph, an order of Catholic nuns from LePuy, France. T he first eight sisters arrived in St. Augustine in September 1866. During this turbulent period after the Civil War there were thousands of freed slaves without education and religion. The sistersw ere challenged to educate and evangelize. They sold French lace to visitors and gave music and French lessons to several northerners who resided in St. Augustine during the winter months. Initially two sister came to A melia Island to teach and their ranks s oon grew to six. The sisters prepared children for t heir first communion.T he school they establ ished thrived and an academy and convent school were s tarted in 1882. Thel ittle house was purchased in 1875 by J ean Pierre Augustin Verot, Bishop of St. Augustine, for the nuns. The purchase price is said to have been $900. The sisters grew famous for their beautiful lace, jams and jellies and used the funds they generated to help fund the school, originally called St. Josephs Academy and C onvent, which now operates a s St. Michael Academy T he Sisters of St. Joseph were heroines in Fernandina Beach even before their academy was built. In 1877, during one of the islands worst yellow fever epidemics, the sisters nursed the sick and dying. It is estimated that 1,600 people lived on the island at that time and more than 1,000 contracted the disease. The nuns were called the Angels of Mercy. A quote from the archives d escribed their her oism They nursed the sick, bathed fever-wracked bodies, fed the hungry and abandoned, sewed lifeless bodies into shrouds and even buried the dead with quick prayers of faith and consolation. Two of the sisters lost their lives in the epidemic. Long after the epidemic, when their bodies were moved to Bosque Bello C emetery, it is said that when t he bodies wer e unearthed t hey were unchanged and a fragrance of roses came from the gravesite. By 1993 the house was in great disrepair and became the center of controversy. A tree grew through its porch. The church that owned the house and the land wanted to expand its parking lot. The house had long been abandoned and was literally falling d own. The church chose not t o r epair it or try and save it. A group of passionate preservationists, the Amelia Island Restoration Foundation, fought to save and restore it. It was renovated and is now a beautifully preserved and a private home. The Phelan-Verot House is one of 22 historic homes featured in Dickie Andersons Great Homes of Fernandina.

6B W EDNESDAY O CTOBER 15, 2014 AROUND TOWN News-Leader CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Tasha has a beautiful smile and lots of love to go with it! Shes our tennis star, because she loves to play with tennis balls, can catch them and willc hase them and bring them back to you. But she can do lots more, too shes an excellent walker on her leash, and shed love gentle walks with you. Shes also very well housetrained and she s quite smart. She comes when shes called and knows how to sit, and absolutely loves tummy rubs. Shes a Labrador Retriever mix and about 6 years old, and has that affectionate Lab disposition. She had heartworms when she came to us, but weve had her treated and were happy to say that she now is hear twormfree. Shes also spayed and ready to go home with you! Tasha gets along with some dogs but not all, so shed pr ob ably do best as the only dog in the household she loves af fection and sometimes does nt want to share it. She has a soft black coat for petting, and soulful brown eyes. Tasha has been in shelters for about a year now, and she has kept her happy disposition thr ough out. But shed be so much happier to find her forever home at last, and shell r epay you every day with loyalty and affection. Our staff and volunteers just love Tasha, and we predict you will too! Sunshine is a sweetheart and a tr ue sur vivor and she would love a foster home for the next several weeks. Wer escued her after r eceiving reports that she had been seen dragging herself down the street. She was obviously injured, possibly hit by a car, and wasnt using her hind legs. W e took her to a veteri narian who stabilized her and took X-rays, which showed that her pelvis was fractur ed in two places and her tail was fractured. Fortunately those injuries should heal themselves over time, and she is now stable and comfortable. Most of all, she is ver y sweet despite everything she has been thr ough, and once she s r ecover ed we think she will be a great pet who will love you completely It would be wonderful if a cat lover could give her a foster home for about the nextt wo months so that she can r ecover in a home envir on ment rather than the stress of a shelter. She cant walk yet but she can get around, and she can do her business on puppy pads. She is ver y friend ly and loves affection. Shell r egain str ength in her back legs as time goes on. Shes a white and black Domestic Shorthair mix, about 4 years old, and we think she must have belonged to someone because she seemed to be in good condition other than the injuries.
