For the rest of what columnist Pat Foster-Turley saw on her recent trip to the city park, go to page 10A.While the Fernandina Beach Parks and Recreation Department has deemed the far south side of the city as deficient in recreational opportunities, not everyone is happy with plans to build a park on Simmons Road. The city has been looking at sites that may be suitable for a park in the area. Some property adjacent to the Fernandina Beach Municipal Airport was considered, but the FAA and the DEP had conflicting regulations related to the proposed park, so the city opted to avoid the issues associated with those conflicts and locate the park elsewhere. At the March 20 City Commission meeting, commissioners approved an application for a $200,000 grant from the Florida Department of Environmental Protections Land and Water Conservation Fund to build a new park. Lorelei Jacobs, the citys grants Hundreds of people fed up with gun violence took to the usually quiet streets of Fernandina Beach on Saturday. Led by students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., where 17 students and staff members were massacred on Feb. 14, the march ers were participating in a national, coor dinated effort to demand action to reduce gun violence. Christine Platel organized the local March for Our Lives, one of the hun dreds that took place across the United States on March 24. Platel asked those who gathered to hear speeches before the march to refrain from turning the event into a political one. Some in the crowd did call out for a ban on assault weapons, but those attending were generally respectful of the speakers and supportive of the movement begun by some of the survivors of the Parkland shooting. Those who spoke to the crowd included Fernandina Beach Police Chief James Hurley and Mayor Johnny Miller, Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper, local students, and students from Parkland. Kayla Sanseverino and Leo Scapino are two of the students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who were in Fernandina Beach on Saturday. Sanseverino said that the state gun legislation recently passed in Tallahassee is a good first step, but it is simply that a step. Children shouldnt have PTSD every time they hear a loud noise, Sanseverino said. We shouldnt have to constantly live in fear that something like this will happen again. Parents and siblings shouldnt go home to one less loved one. But they do. We shouldnt have one less coach next year because the witty, inspiring Scott Beigel died, but we will because we were failed by so many people. No one at Stoneman Douglas will ever forget the tragedy we faced on Feb. 14. Were making sure oth ers dont either. Because, even though life moves on, we cant let people move on from this without a change. By all of us coming together in cit ies, we are proving that we will not rest in our fight for change until we are satis fied, Scapino said. On today and every day, we are positive, passionate proud and MSD strong. Others who spoke acknowledged that the March for Our Lives, as well as the movement across the country demand ing gun control, has been led by young people. We have been called here by our young people who have taken a stand to bring the change necessary to save their own lives, said Cheryl Anderson, Jacksonville group leader of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. Im saying to all these young people persist. Keep going. You are not alone. Fernandina Beach Mayor Johnny Miller said it was one of the greatest honors of his life to support the students. Miller also said that, while adults have seen mass shootings becoming a more and more common event, until now, nothing happened to address the problem. Our generation saw the horrors of Columbine and we saw children running from the high schools. It dominated the media for weeks after that and we wait ed to see the change. It didnt happen, said Miller. A series of school shoot ings happened after that, and then we saw what happened at Sandy Hook and we thought, this time, theres going to be change. We heard for the first time, too soon and we heard thought and prayers. And we didnt see any change. In Miami, I didnt expect change and I didnt get it. After Las Vegas, everybody thought, Well, at least well get rid of bump stocks. I didnt think they would, and they didnt. And then, they walked The regularly scheduled Monday night meeting of the Nassau County Board of County Commissioners began with a sur prising announcement by Chairman Pat Edwards: County Manager Shanea Jones will be leaving her position in three months. In a let ter to the board, Jones wrote she will be retiring from the Florida Retirement System and offered to help find her replacement. It is with a heavy heart that I announce that Ms. Shanea Jones has submitted her resignation. She will be with us until July second, Edwards said. A native of Nassau County, Jones has worked for the county for 14 years. Edwards described Jones service, which began in 2004 as an accounting clerk. In 2006, she went to work as a budget analyst with the Office of Management and Budget, where she became direc tor in 2010. Her career with the county progressed from there, as she assumed the duties of assis tant county manager in 2013 and took on the role as county man ager on Feb. 6, 2017. Edwards said how much he appreciates all that Shanea has done for us and I thank her from the bottom of my heart. Commissioner Danny Leeper praised Jones as well, noting that it had been a pleasure serving with her. Commissioner Justin Taylor followed up with additional kudos, including a wish that Jones would not leave and a statement that Jones has a lot of knowledge about the county. He went on to say that he knows she has a bright future and that she will find a position with a lot less stress and a higher reward. Before he began a discussion of how the board would go about finding a replacement for Jones, County Attorney Mike Mullin said that Jones departure is a real loss because she has done a great job. A copy of her letter of resigna tion, dated March 26 and addressed to Edwards and the rest of the commissioners, was distributed. It reads in part, I have decided to vacate my position as County Manager. As you are aware, I love Nassau County and dedicate count less hours to serving the public by managing daily operations, assisting the Board and planning for the countys future. At this point in my life, I need to reallocate my time to focus more on family. When reached for comment after the meeting, Jones said that she gave three months notice to help make the transition as smooth as possible. She also said that she does not yet have another job lined up and isnt going to look for a posi tion until her son, who will enter the sixth grade this fall, returns to school in August.tb rfntbnnnfntntCINDY JACKSON/NEWS-LEADERCounty Manager Shanea Jones submitted her resignation to the Nassau County Board of County Commissioners on March 26.

Miller added that he had resigned himself to living in a world where school shootings are the norm, but, he said, that has changed with the movement led by young people. I dont feel that way anymore. Its because of you, Miller said. Just a few blocks from here we had an open discussion in Nassau County, in Fernandina Beach, in a public meeting, and talked about gun laws and talked about gun restrictions. You did that. Tallahassee, for the first time since before you were born, has made real changes in gun laws. You did that. When they said, too soon, you said too late. When they said, thoughts and prayers, you said, no thank you, we want action. We all hope the next generation is better than us. Mission accomplished.Fernandina Beach Mayor Johnny Miller marched behind students at the March for Our Lives on March 24.

We have come to understand that the story of the eight flags is incomplete in many ways, wrote AIMH Executive Director Phyllis Davis in the release. The re-imagining of our exhibit spaces will make the islands story more compelling and more accessible to all ages and learning styles. Artifacts and scenically created environments in each room, along with the use of technology, will set up the story. Perhaps the greatest benefit of re-imagining the treatment of our history is the ability to incorporate much more fully all historical cultural groups, specifically African-Americans and Hispanics, who contributed to who we are today, Davis continued. We have the content (over 5,000 artifacts) and the plan (completed in November 2016) and now are ready to move forward with an exciting story that incorporates more technology, creating a 21st-century experience that our over 25,000 yearly visitors expect. The museum has received a challenge grant of $50,000 from the Delores Barr Weaver Fund through the Community Foundation for Northeast Florida. I am excited to help jumpstart the museums plan to tell Amelia Islands remarkable story in a more compelling and accessible way, Delores Barr Weaver noted in the release. I invite all those who appreciate the islands rich history to join me in supporting the museum as it pays tribute to not only the many flags, but the many cultures including African-Americans and Hispanics that have played a significant role in the region. Delores Barr Weaver established the fund at The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida in 2012 to provide grants to nonprofit organizations that do work she has supported over many years and to encourage others to do so as well. Weaver has a legacy of philanthropy and has provided transformative support to dozens of nonprofit organizations that uplift, enlighten and advance the community. Her establishment of the $50 million Delores Barr Weaver Fund in 2012 was the largest gift in The Community Foundations history. The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida, Floridas oldest and largest community foundation, works to stimulate philanthropy to build a better community. The Foundation helps donors invest their philanthropic gifts wisely, helps nonprofits serve the region effectively, and helps people come together to make the community a better place. Now in its 54th year, the Foundation has assets of more than $385 million and has made nearly $450 million in grants since 1964. For more information, visit www.jaxcf.org. For over 40 years the Amelia Island Museum of History has been dedicated to the life and culture in Nassau County through education and preservation of its local history.

According to a news release from the Amelia Island Convention and Visitors Bureau, spending at the 2018 Concours Week was slightly off due to the absence of the Vintage Gran Prix and the Sunday cancella tion, referring to vintage car races conducted in 2016 and 2017 at the Fernandina Municipal Airport and the call made to move the main Concours event to Saturday because of concerns about the weather forecast for Sunday. Overall, the Concours is by far the largest single event con tributing to our economy, wrote Gil Langley, president and CEO of the AICVB in an email. This event generates nearly twice the economic impact of the Shrimp Festival the largest event by attendance. The attendees are high-end customers who leave many happy retailers when they say goodbye! A study of the 2018 Concours Week was implemented by the AICVB to document the eco nomic impact. The findings of the study are based on 272 interviews con ducted with randomly selected attendees at 2018 Concours Week events. The inclement weather and schedule changes impacted 2018 attendance and economic impact. According to the report by Research Data Services, Inc., the estimated total direct expendi tures of off-island visitors (over night and day-trippers) was $16,276,200, and the estimated total economic impact of offisland visitors was $21,414,500. In the companys 2017 report for the AICVB, 98.9 percent of event attendees surveyed were satisfied with their experience and 97.5 percent of off-Island visitors planned to return to Amelia Island. rf Persons with disabilities requiring accommodations in order to participate in this program or activity should contact (904) 548-4660 or the Florida Relay Service at (800) 955-8770(v) or (800) 955-8771 (TDD) at least seventy-two (72) hours in advance to request such accommodations. rfntbr only apply to the unincorporated areas of Amelia Island unincorporated areas of Amelia Island nb nb nb nb nbrfntbtr trtbrr tnrr rfntbtrb ntrtb bt b nrrrrrr fntbtrbPlease contact Kailey Porter or Sue Ann Alleger with the Nassau County Department of Planning and Economic Opportunity with questions at: (904) 530-6300 or electronically at: NL/PSA REQUEST FOR PROPOSALSThe City of Fernandina Beach will receive sealed com petitive responses for requirements for the following until no later than 10:00am, Thursday, April 26, 2018.

CITY OF FERNANDINA BEACH 204 ASH STREET FERNANDINA BEACH, FL 32034 LEGAL ADVERTISEMENT It is said President Trump has had the most difficulty dealing with allies. Those include Justin Trudeau of Canada, Theresa May of Great Britain, Enrique Pena Nieto of Mexico, the Republican leaders and, of course, his cabinet. So it is not surprising that the media and many Democrats throw out nefarious thoughts when it appears that his dealings with Vladimir Putin seem pretty smooth. While this makes for interesting headlines, there may be a very innocent explanation why this is the case. The truth of the matter is often that it is easier to deal and negotiate with adversaries than it is with family, friends, and colleagues. If you dont think this is true, go back into your business and personal life and review some of your interactions that got testy. I can think of some very difficult discussions, especially with my daughter when she was in high school, regarding issues I thought were quite routine. For example, trying to be helpful, I would ask her, Why are you always on the phone? Not appreciating that I was being helpful, she would usually reply, Dont you care if I have friends? On the business front, an example of being caught off guard concerned a phone call I had with the secretary of a companys president. We had been asked to assess a potential senior vice president of marketing. We did the executive assessment report and I called to meet with the president and his team to discuss the results. I got the presidents secretary and gave her my dates. She said my dates didnt work, but she had an alternative. When I said I couldnt meet on the alternate date, she advised that she guessed they would have to meet without me and hung up. Since I still had the actual report they wanted to discuss, I assumed she would call back and, of course, she did. On another occasion I was caught totally unprepared. It involved a CEO after I had begun coaching his executive vice president. His secretary called to advise me that the CEO wanted to meet me for dinner. I was expecting a great meeting. Our assessment pointed out that since the executive VP was also extremely bright and very talented with different skills than the CEO, they should make a great team. I did not think to ask the CEO what he wanted to discuss at dinner or if he had any concerns with the assignment. At dinner the CEO surprised me by advising he did not trust the executive vice president, and what he really wanted was for me to coach him to leave the company. The reason it is easier to deal with adversaries is that before we meet with the Putins and the Kim Jong Uns of the world, we realize we will be in a tough negotiation. Therefore, we do the planning to make the meeting productive and even amicable. In that regard we think about how we want the meeting to develop, how we could draw out concerns about our proposal and how we want the other party to feel as he or she leaves the meeting. We want to come across as supportive of the other party, if not their objectives. Whether or not it was the appropriate action for the leader of the free world to take, President Trump calling Vladimir Putin to congratulate him on his re-election was Negotiations 101. However, when we meet with family, friends and colleagues, we assume we are after the same things (happiness, profits or customers), so we wing it, not realizing we are in a negotiation. This causes us to be unprepared and surprised. This takes us to North Korea. In many ways, since Trump will have time to plan, and he usually does well in these situations, the first meetings could exceed expectations. The real issues will come later, especially if a deal appears attainable and we demand ways to hold North Korea accountable. Even if he reaches an agreement, as with the Iran agreement, the different parties will either praise or criticize the deal more from their political perspective than on its merits. And, as with all deals of this kind, it could be 25 or 30 years later before we know whether President Trump did the right thing. Amelia Island resident Howard Pines has more than 30 years experience as CEO, chairman and founder of BeamPines, a premier firm in the executive coaching business. He also co-founded the BeamPines/Middlesex University Masters Program in Executive Coaching. Prior to that, he served as senior VP of human resources for a Fortune 100 corporation. He is the author of The Case for Wasting Time and Other Management Heresies.

The grant will fund up to $200,000 for jurisdictions looking for a 50/50 match, Jacobs said. We have to come up with $100,000. We have Parks and Recs impact fees that are set aside specifically for projects like this. This is a highly competitive grant. I dont know that we will get it. Parks and Recreation Director Nan Voit shared the citys plans for the 6.45-acre facility at a special meeting called to discuss the park on March 22. The proposed plan is to bring the park in off Simmons Road and have a pervious parking area of approximately nine spaces, one of which will be handicap accessible, Voit explained. There will be a path to a small pavilion with one restroom that connects to a playground with a variety of components that have not been determined at this point. From the playground you will be able to access a small walking trail that will be accessible as well. Weve proposed to put interactive educational signage about the flora and fauna throughout the walking trail in an effort to educate children and adults about the indigenous species in the area. Voit said that the length of the trail has not yet be determined but that plans are to work around the existing vegetation to create a passive park that blends in with nature. Several people attending the special meeting to discuss the park offered opinions for and against it. I just wonder, in general, just because we can get something doesnt mean we need to have it, one audience member said. Its a very small island and we do have a lot of park land, but what we dont have is a lot of preserved land. Every space I drive by says this is for sale. Its kind of hard to see another thing being built. City Planner Kelly Gibson explained that the site and the properties that adjoin it to the south are currently zoned and have a land use of recreation, which protects it from development. The city, once it zones a property for recreation or conservation, that has placed on it a land use that has very limited abilities for development purposes and certainly excludes residential, commercial development, Gibson explained. In order to overturn that particular land use, a vote of the public has to be obtained. Its not a simple commission vote. In the case of conservation land use in zoning, it requires a lot more effort. It is very well-protected. Protecting the trees in the area was a major concern for those at the meeting. Margaret Kirkland with the Amelia Tree Conservancy said that, while her group would prefer that nothing be done with the property, a low impact park is a good thing. Kirkland also pushed back on cutting trees to create a park. Im glad to see that there arent 1,000 trails all through the thing, Kirkland said of the plans. However, where you see the trail, the parking, the playground equipment, the access road all of that means cutting trees. We dont need to lose canopy and, every time we cut trees, we allow salt to come in and were not just losing the trees that we cut; were also losing other trees that die as a result of that salt coming underneath the canopy. That is a concern that we have. Kirkland said a lot of bird species have been disrupted in the last five years, one of several comments regarding the impact to wildlife. Im so against encroachment of wild space for animals, another audience member said. Anybody who looks at Facebook like once a week you see somebody complaining about some animal thats in their yard. Should I kill this snake? Get rid of these possums? I dont like this in my yard. The coyotes, the birds. You know, we have to leave somewhere. Its what makes the charm of the island that these animals are here. If we keep spreading and taking over all their space, theyre going to go in peoples yards, and then people are going to get exterminators and poison them and get rid of them and we wont have anything left. The citizen also voiced concerns regarding use of the parks facilities by homeless people. Where do we get the money that maintains everything? she asked. Who cleans it up? Who keeps the homeless people from using that bathroom? That seems to happen when there are bathrooms and nobody around, or whoever the people are, not homeless people. Trudie Richards, who is on the Parks & Recreation Advisory Committee, said that she lives near the Atlantic Recreation Center and that the public restroom there has not been a problem. There is a public bathroom there. I dont find it abused at all, Richards said. There may be homeless people who use it. I dont have a problem with that. Frankly, they close the door when they leave and somebody comes and cleans it up. Its sad that we have homeless people in our community, but I sure as hell dont want to evict them or prevent them from having access to a place to relieve themselves. Continued from 1AI think (thats) an elitist attitude, but thats my personal view. Richards said the plans for the park are a product of compromise between those who did not want any kind of development of the area and those who realize the city needs to serve residents on its south side. Sometimes I think we have to be willing to bend, Richards said. I think this is a good, lowimpact compromise idea for people who are directly affected and people like me, who are not. (You) have to give a little bit, even if its not necessarily the best thing. Its not a bad thing. Vice Mayor Len Kreger said he has advocated for the park, even if the city does not get the grant and has to pay for it with impact fees. People bought property and they paid their impact fees, and they have rights, Kreger said. We are obligated to provide services. That park will be (handicap accessible.) Well make that park where people can go out and see nature, not just let nature stay there. I supported it (and) my fellow commissioners supported it. Its a good opportunity, like other things with grants, to use other peoples money to move forward and save us money. The fact that the park will be accessible to disabled individuals was also a point of discussion. Jacobs said it would be the only park with trails that are accessible by wheelchair. Jacobs added that the plans for the park include an educational element. There will be features along the trail, and we hope to contract with the University (of Florida) for some of these so they are interesting and invite involvement and interaction with nature. We have seasonal bird information and things like that. One man who attended the meeting said he lives in the Simmons Cove development, which is adjacent to the park area. He called the plans a terrific idea. (The city) came very close a couple of time to selling it to developers, he said, noting it was a three-to-two vote. The developers are going to come in there and theyre going to clear cut the trees and theyre going to do what they did when they developed Simmons Cove, put 20-something houses in there. This is a tremendous opportunity with a very low impact to the area. When I first looked at it, I saw a park, and I said, Oh geez. Then I looked at the drawing and its very low impact to the homes on both sides and maintains most of the nature back there, of which there is quite a bit. I am in full support of that. CITY OF FERNANDINA BEACHThe plans for a park off Simmons Road include a trail, but how developed that trail would be has yet to be determined. Lorelei Jacobs, grant administrator for the city of Fernandina Beach, said the trails could join a system in the 30 acres that surround the park area, which could be a primitive trail or a dirt trail.

The 2018 hurricane season is approaching, and according to a news release from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, preparation means more than just creating a disaster kit and reviewing your familys disaster plan, although these are critical first steps. Theres much more you can do to protect your home and family before hurricane season begins on June 1. Plan ahead Document items and contents in your home in photos. Buy a National Flood Insurance Policy from your insurance company. Standard homeowners insurance policies do not cover flood damage. Only about half of Florida homeowners inside high-risk areas had insurance against flooding before Hurricane Irma made landfall Sept. 10, 2017. See msc. fema.gov/portal to know the flood risk in your area and see www.floodsmart. gov for information about risk and rates. Download the FEMA app at www. fema.gov/mobile-app. The app provides disaster resources, safety tips, maps of open shelters and weather alerts from the National Weather Service. Go to www.Ready.gov for more details. There are many ways to strengthen your home against wind and winddriven rain. FEMAs Wind Retrofit Guide for Residential Buildings is a good resource. Consider elevating appliances such as water heaters, air-conditioning units and electrical equipment. Trees with trunks larger than six inches in diameter should be far enough away from your house they cannot fall on it. Trim trees so that limbs do not hang over your house. Remove branches that hang over utility wires. Professional regular pruning can create a sturdy, well-spaced framework of branches with an open canopy that allows wind to flow freely through. During a Hurricane Watch, Hurricane conditions are possible Stay tuned to your phone alerts and TV or radio for weather updates, emergency instructions and evacuation orders. Severe weather information is also available from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration at noaa.gov. Activate your disaster plan. Check your disaster kit. Important items include flashlights, battery-powered radios, batteries, medical, accessibility and pet supplies, cash and first-aid supplies. Place important papers and documents such as drivers licenses, social security cards, passports, birth certificates, vehicle registration cards and insurance policies in a waterproof, portable container. Know what you and your family will do if there is an evacuation order. During a Hurricane Warning, Hurricane conditions are expected within 48 hours Stayed tuned to phone alerts and TV or radio for weather updates. Fill vehicles with gas. Keep mobile devices fully charged. Bring any loose items like trash cans, yard furniture including items on your deck barbecue grills and tools inside; store in a garage or sturdy building. Disconnect electrical appliances. If you evacuate, turn off gas and electricity at the main switch or valve.

We believe that strong newspapers build strong communi ties Newspapers get things done! Our primary goal is to publish distinguished and profitable community-oriented newspapers.

To earn my merit badge for marksmanship required certification by an authorized range instructor that I was both knowledgeable and proficient in gun safety and marksmanship. Everyday after school I would rush home, get my .22 caliber rifle, walk three blocks to catch a public bus downtown, where I walked another several blocks to the sporting goods store that had a shooting range upstairs. While there, I would be tested on my safe handling of firearms and shooting skills. Afterwards, I would retrace my way, with rifle in hand, back home. Not once during the week that I car ried an open rifle on public transpor tation and walked city streets, did any bus driver, uniformed police officer or other adult that I encountered question or challenge me. Why was my behavior not considered highly unusual or potentially threaten ing to the community? Why wasnt a S.W.A.T. team summoned to neutralize me? Why? To answer these questions, and better understand recent school shootings, we must first examine the profound and disturbing changes that have occurred within our contempory culture during the past 50 or so years. The root causes enabling increas ing violence in the U.S., such as school shootings, can be traced to a perfect storm of changes in our contempory society and culture that, for too many, has lost respect for human dignity and does not value human life. The systemic cultural issues underlying these detrimental changes include, but are not limited to, fewer stable families; loss of moral authority in our homes, schools, government and other institutions; desensitizing social media and movies including pornography and violent video games; ondemand abortions; the epidemic drug crisis and undiagnosed or uncontrolled mental illness. U.S. society should demand more from itself and its children. It would be nave to think that a single solution could remedy such systemic and pervasive cultural problems requiring comprehensive solutions and concerted long-term efforts. Simplistic solutions based solely on gun control, that fail to reconcile the contemporary cultural issues, are hypocrisy and doomed to failure. The assumption that the school shooting problems and other gun violence are not grounded in the erosion of contempory culture is a false premise. Samuel Jefferson Kennard Amelia IslandfrntbThe march was interesting. Sheriff Bill Leeper gave a good speech, as did Chief Hurley. There was a good-sized crowd, but very few students. Many people were from out of town and you can see the difference between students marching on a Saturday (their time) and marching when they can get out of school! One of the speakers admitted that there was significant money raised and donated (many, if not most, were from out of town or from Amelia). I didnt recognize many people from Fernandina Beach, but did see a dozen or so (all good people). We just differ politically. I was amongst them (carry ing, of course). They were mostly very polite and respectful. I have no issue with people that think differently than me! A beautiful day to march or fish, although I prefer the latter. Mutt Daniel Fernandina BeachbbbThe school shooting in Parkland and the motivated students from that school have raised public awareness of gun violence, epitomized by the March for Our Lives on March 24th. Polls show national support for stronger gun laws; the Florida legislature even passed a bill. But how do we know if sensible gun laws are, in fact, sensible? The Dickey Amendment, passed in 1996 after intensive NRA lobbying, forces us to operate in the dark. It blocks the CDC from conducting research on gun violence. Proposing strategies to address gun violence without studying the effectiveness of those strategies is nonsensical. One wouldnt treat can cer without conducting research first. Why is gun violence different? We must repeal the Dickey Amendment to allow proper studies on firearm violence and to identify reasonable, effective solu tions. Arming teachers sounds great to the NRA, because it sells more guns, but will probably do more harm than good. But the NRA doesnt want you to know that. Their donations to congressmen ensure that we are blinded to real data that might contradict their worldview. Let the data drive our decisions rather than politics. John Findlay Fernandina BeachWeek after week I have read Viewpoint after Viewpoint in the NewsLeader lambasting the NRA and guns as being the villains. Having lived in Nassau County the majority of my life, I would have never expected such. Perhaps most of these have come from people that are relatively new to the area, I thought to myself. Certainly the fine citizens of our county havent permitted the mainstream media to taint their opinions of the Second Amendment? Sadly, it appears either the News-Leader has chosen to print only anti-gun Viewpoints, or there are no pro-gun viewpoints to be printed. I decided I needed to change that. I want to set the record straight. I am very upset that our governor allowed emotion to overcome him and the majority of our state (legislature) and permitted passage of SB 7026. It may have some good points, but removing the right of 18-20 year old citizens to purchase a long gun is not one of them. Neither is adding a three-day waiting period for the rest of us who have committed no crime. Now, a gun is merely an inanimate object. The person who picks it up and uses it is and always will be the criminal. Until society accepts that, we are lost. How many of you know about the PROMISE Program? The PROMISE Program is what caused the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. If anyone cared enough to do a little due diligence and research, they would have learned that in 2013, the school superintendent enacted this program. Why? Because in 2011-12, Broward County Schools had the highest arrest record in the state. Over 1,000 kids arrested. So, what is this PROMISE Program? Preventing Recidivism through Opportunities, Mentoring, Intervention, Support, and Education. Instead of having the cops arrest kids for their infractions, schools would deal with it in house. The Obama Administration thought it was such a great idea that they gave Broward $54 million in grants. How did the police feel about it? Well, this is what the Broward County Sheriffs Union president told Laura Ingraham of Fox News when asked: They dont want the police officers making arrests on campus and they dont want the drugs to be found on campus and they dont want the warrants to be served on campus, because it looks like there is bad stats at the school. So, I place a lot of blame on the school board with that and some of the programs that they have initiated with the state attorney and the sheriffs office in the years past, for example the PROMISE Program. The problem is, when that program started, we took all discretion away from the law enforcement officers to effect an arrest if we choose to. So, we have a program that will not allow police to do their job, arrest criminals, regardless of where they are on a school campus or not. You know what happens when you get arrested? It goes into a database. You know what happens with that information? It prevents you from buying a gun. That information would have prevented Nikolas Cruz from buying that AR-15; however, it appears the 30-plus times police officers went to his home and who knows how many times he was dealt with at school, that information was never put into the database that tracks the stuff for offenders. So, all of you that say that the system is broken are correct. But, it is not the gun system. The people who buy and sell guns all day long are doing it right! The NRA and those who support it are not broken! We are 100 percent whole and have been since this happened. We have been scapegoats for a mentally ill person that this PROMISE Program failed miserably. The bill that Governor Scott passed was done so to appease the families of those who lost loved ones. I guarantee those families dont know about this PROMISE Program. If they did, they would be livid. I urge you all to look at both sides of the story before you start ripping away at our Constitution as this bill does. There are those among us that would like nothing better than to see us all disarmed. They are the same ones that walk around with bodyguards who are armed. Pol Pot, Hitler, Mao Tse-tung, Joseph Stalin they all took arms from their citizens. While many of you may think this isnt a dis-arming, I see it as a baby step. In this country, they wont do it all at once. If we let them take an inch, they will take the mile one inch at a time. Stand up for your rights. Think about what we have just allowed to happen just because of a broken system. Guns are not the problem humans are. And it has been proven in this case that the FBI failed, and the school system failed, because, had either of them done their jobs properly, then the databases would have had the information they needed to keep the gunman from buying the gun that he used to kill 17 innocent people.Last year, in 2017, President Donald Trump signed into law the Vietnam Veterans Recognition Act of 2017, designating March 29 as National Vietnam War Veterans Day to honor all men and women who served and sacrificed, as did their families, during the longest conflict in United States history. It was on March 29, 1973, that all combat and com bat support units withdrew from South Vietnam to de-escalate the war. March 29 is also a day to give proper recognition to all the men and women who returned home from that war and didnt, by any means, receive a proper welcome home for doing their sworn duty in heeding the call of our countrys direction at that time. The war in Southeast Asia occurred during a very divisive time in the United States and in other parts of the world. The protests against our own military divided returning Vietnam veterans by politics and socioeconomic status. The nation was not prepared to handle their physical and psychological needs. The scars of combat and support included invisible wounds of yet to be discovered post traumatic stress disorder, Agent Orange, and six other agents that would prematurely cause malady and death in their futures and the futures of their generations to come, and memories that are seldom mentioned but always in the minds of those who served there. They were just trying to readjust to civilian life, but the echoes of that era would change the course and attitude of millions throughout the post-war decades. In one of the wars residues and most profound tragedies, many of these fine men and women came home to be shunned or neglected for many years, and to face treatment unbefitting of their service and welcome home unworthy of the example they deserved. As time passed, some critics softened and felt that our veterans were only doing their duty, but the hurt and remembrance of those stormy times left many scars, both physically and emotionally, upon our veterans, who went where they were ordered to go, knew they were the very best America had, and yet were scorned in many ways for decades for serving faithfully. There were 11 years of combat and support that left an imprint on their generation. These warriors of all different backgrounds, colors, education, and youth came together in a lifetime brotherhood to fight and die in a mission to attempt to halt communist domination. Many Americans, some merely boys, from all corners of our nation, left their jobs, schools and families to serve the country they loved. They served in so many ways to preserve the values we should all share today. They won every major battle in the conflict and upheld the highest traditions of our armed forces, but many feel they were defeated by the decisions of our own leaders. This Thursday will find American flags flown everywhere, commemorative events and services and the opportunity for everyone to say thank you for serving a grateful nation to our Vietnam veterans! It has been more than 50 years since we entered Vietnam. We suffered the losses of more than 58,000 people. We who served pay a huge and humble tribute to the fallen, the missing, the wounded, the millions who served there or supported our effort and the millions who awaited the return of our military Vietnam-era men and women. We encourage you to attend a veterans event, visit with a veteran in a hospital or care facility, speak to and celebrate a veterans relative, friend or neighbor, fly your flag proudly, buy them lunch or dinner, and most of all, thank them for their service and sacrifice.

of this trip was a mama gator. According to the experienced birder nearby, this mama has had a clutch of babies every year for a few years now, usually in the same place, right near the wooden observation deck. She has only three legs, I was told, although at the time I couldnt tell since she was floating in the water, her legs underneath her. But what was most fascinating were the hatchlings, 20 or more of them basking near her on the muddy edge of the pond. Once I tore myself away from the gators and continued along the boardwalk, I saw that in the reptile world spring had really sprung. Even the green anoles were scampering along the railings, with their orange dewlaps extended in hope of attracting a mate. And it wasnt only reptiles enjoying the sunny, early spring day. The birds were acting up too. One great blue heron was chasing another one through the canopy of forest bordering the wetland, most likely a breeding ritual, as they landed tree to tree. Along a channel, two great white egrets were also chasing each other down its length until they finally settled down and strode together along the bank looking for fish. A group of cormorants noticed the action and joined in from the waterside in an act of cooperative fishing, where both species benefit from confusing the fish about which way to flee. I watched all of this wildlife action in less than an hours time, and I admired the host of other birds visible too: the white ibis feeding in reddish water plants that highlighted their own red beaks; the glossy ibis following another white ibis group, staying shyly in the background; the limpkins feeding on apple snails; the gallinules, coots and ducks floating in the ponds; the red-winged blackbirds and anhingas perched on tall poles or snags. But alas, I had to leave to move on to my next engagement that day, an evening with my friend and former Ph.D. professor Elizabeth Wing at her senior living center. The next day, I just had to go back to Sweetwater Wetlands, this time with Liz in tow. She and I slowly walked around the shortest loop of the boardwalk admiring the birds and reptiles all around. I led her to the spot where I had seen the mama gator and babies the afternoon before. Yes, she was still in the same area, a bunch of babies beside her along the muddy bank. And better yet, three of the babies had climbed onto her back, one near her head and two near her tail, a great photo op for sure! It was another great visit to the Sweetwater Wetlands Park. There are no bad days there Im sure. You might not see baby gators on a mama or a ball of breeding snakes, but theres always something. Youve got to check it out!

But on this last visit in early March, it was the reptiles that captivated me. As usual, when entering the park, I quizzed a photographer leaving the area with his professional camera gear and long lens: Seen anything special today? Yes, he had seen some snail kites, but they were far up the side trail and too far away to view without a camera like his. Ok, what else? And then he told me about the pile of snakes. At first I couldnt see the snakes where he had described them, near the first bridge. They were partially hidden in the riprap underneath the bridge, but when I spotted them and stopped, a few other people joined me to observe them too. These were banded water snakes, some younger ones with more vivid bands, and some larger with the bands blending into their overall dark color. It was hard to see if there were four snakes or five, since all were entwined and all of the heads were not visible. But it was a fascinating sight, this pile of mating snakes, something Ive only seen once before. Other water snakes were visible elsewhere in the clear shallow water, hunting for frogs and fish in the native vegetation. On higher ground, I found a rat snake basking in the sun. Great! The snakes were interesting enough to make the visit worthwhile, but then I came to the alligators.

rf Sheepshead should be spawning hard this week, with some of the best sheepshead fishing coming just before the full moon, which arrives this Saturday, Capt. Kenny Crawford said. It has been rough offshore, where most of the best sheepshead action has been coming from; however, the St. Marys jetties are currently offering an excellent sheepshead bite. During a recent offshore fishing trip, Crawford was targeting sheepshead, and his fishing party had a surprise visitor. We were catching some really nice sheepshead and black drum when a nine-foot great white shark literally swam up and ate my hooked sheepshead, Crawford said. It was actually the same day that Captain Tony Peeples had a similar size great white come up to his boat and eat a hooked black drum. I really believe these frequent sightings of great white sharks in our local fishing waters are due in part to the current black drum spawn. During the spring fishing season, we have a lot of black drum in close to the inlets and nearshore fish havens, where they become an easy meal for any large sharks, particularly great white sharks. Crawford is also an excellent sheepshead angler and predicts a big sheepshead bite will take place during the next few days; a full moon will occur Saturday. Windy weather is predicted for the next few days which will limit offshore fishing, Crawford said. However, the St. Marys jetty rocks should be loaded with sheepshead, which will be spawning for the next few days. Once the spawn is over, the majority of sheepshead will migrate up into the rivers, where they will spend most of the warmer months. Crawford has also found that, during recent sheepshead fishing trips, monofilament fishing line attracts more sheepshead bites than the newer and popular braided fishing lines. I have been doing a lot of experimenting with both braided and monofilament fishing lines, he said. Typically, I will fish one rod and reel with braided fishing line on one side of the boat and one with monofilament fishing line on the other side of the boat. I have found that monofilament fishing lines attract more bites than braided fishing lines. What I personally have found when fishing close to jetty rocks, barnacle-clad pilings or any structure where a hooked fish might run my fishing line around structure and break off, coloring the last four feet of braided fishing line with a black magic marker helps promote more strikes.

After my recent column on the fascinating horseshoe crab, I received a note from Sandra Baker-Hinton, a friend who is passionate about our island and its creatures. She was the first non-employee to volunteer for Fort Clinchs sea turtle program. She trains each spring and monitors the turtles egg laying May to October. A popular local artist, she maintains a studio at Fern and Dinas Gallery on South Fifth Street just off Centre Street in the Historic District. Several years ago I joined her on one of her early morning turtle patrol outings. The trick is to be on the beach at first light and to search for signs of the 350-pound turtles that crawl out of the ocean and up on the beach to lay eggs. We jumped into her specially adapted golf cart and traveled down the beach. Lucky for me, we found crawl marks indicating a nest and BakerHinton quickly set markers designating the site and noting the date. Baker-Hinton was excited to share her newest project. It is a new program focused on the study of horseshoe crabs conducted by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the University of Florida. The Amelia Island volunteers are among several in other parts of Florida. Her small group of volunteers will gather on high tide mornings checking for nesting and tagging horseshoe crabs. They will be monitoring three mornings consecutively during high tides of the new and full moon in the spring and fall. Two areas of Fort Clinch beaches are currently designated for this study. This is the first horseshoe crab study in Florida so not much is known, but it is known that there are five different populations in the state that vary in appearance. The study will be somewhat like the Sea Turtle Program but volunteers are not sure that it will continue like the turtle program has. The group traveled to Cedar Key, across the state and on the Gulf coast, to get their training. Volunteers were surprised that the adult females found there were half the size of the crabs in our area. Baker-Hinton has long been interested in the horseshoe crabs and has been reporting her sightings to the FWC because she had noted that our area was not listed as an area where the crabs could be found. She noticed that the nesting areas have been growing each year. While on her Fort Clinch turtle patrol, she would see hundreds of nests. They look like a pothole in the sand. She also would find crabs stranded, upside down or buried deep in the sand. They might have been baked in the sun if not righted and helped back into the water. Recognizing Baker-Hintons passion for things native to our island, she was approached to head up the study in our area. The group is excited about the project and suggests that, if you see the volunteers on the beach with their buckets, scales, all sorts of measuring devices and crabs spread out on a table, come ask questions and learn more about this latest effort to protect the creatures so important in our world. For information about this new program contact Sandra Baker-Hinton at sbh@sandrabaker-hinton.com.

West Nassau High Schools Entrepreneurship Team of Luke Libby and Kameron Witt recently led a group of six finalists from Nassau County at the Future Business Leaders of America State Conference, according to a news release. Libby and Witt placed second in their event at the state compe tition held at the Orlando Hilton Resort and Convention Center. In all, more than 50 students from five Nassau County schools competed in various events relat ed to business, sales, customer service, and technology careers. Students qualified for the statelevel competition by winning their respective categories at the FBLA District IV Conference in January. This year, Hilliard MiddleSenior High School expanded its chapter to include middle school students. Sixth grader Andrew Huber took advantage of the opportunity and placed third in the Introduction to Computer Science and Coding event. Beatrice Davis from Yulee High School placed fourth in the Help Desk competition, and Robert Cooke of Yulee Middle School also placed fourth in Career Explorations. Carlene Tompkins at West Nassau High School rounded out Nassau Countys finalists with a fifth place finish in Client Services. Brody Mandelbaum from Fernandina Beach High School became the first Nassau County student in more than a decade to be elected to a state office. He will serve as the state vice president for Region II. The posi tion is the top post in Northeast and North Central Florida and is a cabinet-level position for Florida FBLA. To win the posi tion, Mandelbaum put together a campaign team, gave a speech to the crowd of over 4,000 students, and networked throughout the state convention to garner votes. nftbSUBMITTED PHOTOSClockwise, Future Business Leaders of American finalists from West Nassau High School include from left Kameron Witt for Entrepreneurship Team, Advisor Joyce Finley, Carlene Tompkins for Client Services, and Luke Libby for Entrepreneurship Team.

When older adults stop driving, they may worry about losing their independence. Now, a University of Florida and Florida Department of Transportation Safe Mobility for Life team wants to help them find transportation options so they can get to medical appointments, go shopping, head out with friends, or travel wherever else they want to go, according to a news release. UF and FDOT have launched the website FindaRideFlorida.org, which features transportation options in all of Floridas 67 counties. We know that a lack of transportation can have a big impact on physical and mental health. We want people to continue to meet their daily needs, participate in their communities and do the things they enjoy, Sandra Winter, Ph.D., OTR/L, the UF teams project leader and the associate director of the Institute for Mobility, Activity, and Participation, or I-MAP, housed in the department of occupational therapy at the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions, said in the release. Site users indicate their starting location and can select other search filters, including purpose of trip and special needs, such as wheelchair accommodations. Search results list the various transportation providers in that geographical area, along with details on cost, reservation requirements, service hours and contact information. Providers include traditional taxi companies, public transportation, nonprofits and ride-hailing services. Everyones mobility needs are unique, and by providing our aging population access to more transportation options, it will help older adults remain independent and connected to their communities, Gail M. Holley, FDOT Safe Mobility for Life program manager, also stated in the release. The sites design features address the needs of users with low vision, and the site offers links to resources for screen readers that read the content aloud. While FindaRideFlorida.org was developed with older adults in mind, the site is open to users of any age. UF and FDOT first began offering an online transportation database in 2004. The newly launched FindaRideFlorida.org offers several technological upgrades over the previous database, including the use of geographic information system mapping to make the site more accurate and user-friendly. The GIS data captured by FindaRideFlorida.org could also inform state transportation policy, according to Sherrilene Classen, Ph.D., M.P.H., OTR/L, director of I-MAP and a professor and chair of the UF department of occupational therapy. Find a Ride data enables public transportation agencies and decision-makers to respond to transportation gaps more effectively, leading to better, more equitable public transportation service planning and delivery to benefit the most vulnerable populations in Florida, she said. Ultimately, Classen noted, the goal is that transportation options in Florida pass the ice cream test, an idea proposed by Joseph F. Coughlin, Ph.D., the founder and director of the Massachusetts Institute of Technologys AgeLab. If an older adult desires to have an ice cream cone at 9 p.m. on, lets say, a Thursday evening, they should be able to obtain just that via user-friendly alternative transportation services, Classen said. In addition to Winter and Classen, UFs FindaRideFlorida.org development team includes Ilir Bejleri, Ph.D., an associate professor of urban and regional planning in the UF College of Design, Construction and Planning who led the geographic information system mapping component; Jason Rogers, web and database developer, and Donna Schoenfelder, database assistant, both in the department of occupational therapy; Marni Fowler, a junior mapping developer at the College of Design, Construction and Planning; and senior developer Nathaniel Wingfield, formerly of the College of Design, Construction and Planning.
