rffntb rfffntfbfff Though a crowded field of 34 candidates qualified to run for 26 elected posts, including sheriff, tax assessor and the Board of Public Instruction, seven Nassau County offices remained without any candidates. March 28, 1968 rffnftbfrbft MARLENE KOZAK/SPECIALWhile their parents are away foraging for food, two young owlets are seen watching the comings and goings of the area around their nest in a local oak tree. The tree has been a home to many young owls for several years. Amelia Island resident Marlene Kozak recently captured the pair in a series of photos that can be seen on page 3B.ffnfnAmy Lacroix, director of marketing for the Amelia Island Tourist Development Council, shared some impressive statistics on the state of tourism in Nassau County at the March 26 meeting of the Nassau County Board of County Commissioners. She also said the AITDC would be expanding its geographic outreach, noting, The farther away, the longer they stay. In addition to reporting on the record-breaking numbers from 2017, the AITDC aired a few of the award-winning videos that are partially responsible for attracting more tourists to the island and surrounding area. The theme of its latest campaign is Island Enchantment, Ever So Slightly Special. Gil Langley, the AITDCs managing director and president and CEO of the Amelia Island Convention and Visitors Bureau, also participated in the presentation. Over $138 million in taxable room sales was achieved in 2017 and overnight guests spent a record $485 million in the area, according to the AITDC. The organizations report states that, while visitors make memories, our local businesses make money. Other benchmarks include a total economic impact of $638 million, a tourism payroll totaling nearly $121 million from jobs in Nassau County with those jobs representing approximately 24 percent of total county employment, and tourism-related business generating 38 percent of total sales tax collected in the county. Ask what the demographics are for visitors to Nassau County, and the AIDTC can answer that too. The average age of a visitor is 49.8 years, and the average party size is 2.9 persons while the average annual household income is over $133,000. Created by the county commissioners in 1988, the AITDC oversees the development and marketing of Amelia Island as a world-class tourism destination. Funded by a 4-percent bed tax on local short-term accommodations, 75 percent of the AITDCs revenues go to advertising and promotion. In 2017 the AITDC also spent over $1.5 million for beach-related cleaning and cleanup efforts, collected over 500,000 pounds of debris, and inaugurated the Sea Sculptures program to raise awareness of the countys Leave No Trace ordinance to help protect the islands 13 miles of beach.

A Fernandina Beach woman involved in a fatal crash in October 2016 that killed two of her sons and injured six other children, including her daughter, received a sentence of 30 years in prison on Thursday. Tonya Naomi Capallia-Eason, 34, pleaded guilty on Feb. 1 to two counts of DUI manslaughter and three counts of DUI serious bodily injury, according to the docket of Circuit Court Judge Robert M. Foster. The prosecution agreed to consider a sentence cap of 30 years and a minimum of 10 years in Florida State Prison. There was a pre-sentencing investigation, according to the courts records. Capallia-Eason was under the influence of alcohol when she got behind the wheel of an SUV the night of Oct. 22, 2016, after a Halloween rf ntnfb ff CapalliaEason fff f nYulee High School senior Jaya Riley has been awarded a $10,000 Horatio Alger Association scholarship and plans to use it to pursue a psychology career. The association bears the name of the renowned author Horatio Alger Jr., whose tales of overcoming adversity through unyielding perseverance and basic moral principles captivated the public in the late 19th century, according to the associations website. State scholarships are awarded to eligible students in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. According to the website, the associations founder, Dr. Kenneth Beebe, in association with Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, hoped to inspire individual Americans to reach their highest potential, thereby strengthening American society as a whole. They created the Association to recognize men and women of outstanding achievement as a way to remind Americans of the limitless possibilities that exist through the free-enterprise system. The program specifically assists high school students who have faced and overcome great obstacles in their young lives. The scholarships are funded by Horatio Alger Association members who, like the scholars, have experienced challenges but ultimately overcame them to become successful business and civic leaders, according to the association. To be eligible to apply for a Horatio Alger State Scholarship, applicants must exhibit a strong commitment to pursue and complete a bachelors degree, demonstrate critical financial need, be involved in co-curricular and community service activities, display integrity and perseverance in overcoming adversity and maintain a minimum grade point average of 2.0. Riley wrote an essay about a member of the Horatio Alger Association, poet Maya Angelou. Scholarships were given to 615 students nationally, twenty in Florida. Riley was the only recipient from Nassau County. Riley said she has not finalized plans for college because she is waiting for a decision from Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H. Her second choice for a school is Florida State. She said she had plans to become a doctor, but that in her freshman year she changed her direction to psychology. I took a psychology 101 class and fell in love with it, Riley said. I knew right then I wanted to go into that field.tnnn bfn SUBMITTEDJaya Riley has participated in sports including soccer, cross country, and track and field, and is a member of several clubs at Yulee High School.

An audit conducted for Florida State University shows that a $1 million mental health screening program funded by the state, administered by the FSU College of Medicine, and headed by Fernandina Beach-based Florida Psychological Associates lacked adequate planning and did not produce any statistically meaningful results. The projects goal was to screen school children in Nassau, Duval, and Clay counties and adults facing criminal charges in the 4th Judicial Circuit Court. The program was conducted under a contract between the College of Medicine and FPA. The Audit of the Contract Between the University College of Medicine and Florida Psychological Associates was performed by the FSU Office of Inspector General Services and dated March 9, 2018. We concluded that screenings measured by the number of letters sent to parents of schoolchildren requesting permission to screen their children (fell) significantly short of earning amounts paid and the accomplishment of program intent, according to the report by Chief Audit Officer Sam McCall. Our review of correspondence between the (College of Medicine) and FPA showed that both parties worked diligently in an effort to implement the program. However, as noted above, there was a lack of clarity on what was being procured, what was actually done to support invoices received, and how accountability would be demonstrated, wrote McCall. According to a section about why administering the contract was difficult, The contract was not clear as to whether the screening deliverable was based on attempted screenings or administered screenings. The College of Medicine stopped making payments to FPA at the end of March 2017. FSU and FPA terminated their contract in July 2017. Browning Brooks, FSUs assistant vice president of university communications, responded to a News-Leader request for comment by saying, At the request of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, FSU returned $310,000 for this project to the state of Florida. The university has no further comment regarding it. Requests for comments sent to FPA owner and CEO Catherine Drew went unanswered by press time. A section in the report where the FSU College of Medicine responded to the audits findings states in part that the school had $1 million in unrequested legislative funds directed to us and received on July 1, 2016. This was not expected or planned for, and we had no relationship with FPA prior to this time. In spite of that, we entered into an agreement with FPA with expectations, negotiated benchmarks, and proposed outcomes to be reached. The College of Medicine made a good faith effort to administer the funds appropriately throughout the agreement. As noted in the report, the complexity of the steps in procuring contracts, recruiting study subjects across multiple counties and school districts, requesting multiple (institutional review board) approvals, and recruiting staff to fulfill the requirements in a timely fashion proved insurmountable. A section where FPA responded to the auditors findings states in part: Not only did we face delays in gaining approval from the FSU institutional review board, we also faced unanticipated barriers regarding screening in local schools including overcoming the strong negative stigma associated with mental illness. At times those challenges required that we change some aspects of our anticipated study design in an attempt to ensure that we were able to obtain the information needed for quality research and to ensure a good return on investment for the state. When concerns were raised regarding FPA not meeting deliverables associated with this project, FPA repeatedly offered to extend the timeline of the project with no additional costs. In fact, we continued to administer screeners in schools and in the justice system after the funding was cut short. We sincerely appreciated the opportunity to work with FSU to gather more information in this area, communicate findings to the scientific community, and to serve so many in our community with unmet mental health needs. To help launch the FPA project, state Sen. Aaron Bean, R-Fernandina Beach, submitted a local funding request in the amount of $692,774 in early 2016 during the legislatures budgeting season, but the request did not survive the appropriations process. Instead, $1 million was allocated to the research budget of FSUs College of Medicine just days before the state budget was finalized and sent to Gov. Rick Scott. The report does not explain how the appropriation ended up in the College of Medicines budget, saying only on February 29, 2016, (College of Medicine) management was made aware that $1 million dollars was allocated to them for Mental Health Early Screening. The appropriation came without instructions, legislative intent or guidance and simply identified the money was to be distributed to FPA for a mental health-screening program, according to the audit report. FPA hired lobbyists at roughly the same time the $1 million appeared in FSUs budget, and Drew attributed this expenditure to the insertion of the money in the College of Medicines budget. I am very grateful for the opportunity and for Senator Beans willingness to step up and tackle challenging areas, that he allowed me to submit a request through the Senate, Drew told the News-Leader in 2017. My understanding is that it was killed in a House subcommittee meeting. When it was killed, smart people around me advised that I reach out to a lobbyist. FPAs original proposal for the program in the spring of 2016 said it estimated 12,500 screenings would be administered in Nassau, Clay and Duval schools and in the judicial system in the 4th Judicial Circuit. The audit places the initial screenings estimate at 12,300. That number was broken down into 7,500 screenings of students distributed evenly across the three counties despite their disparate populations and 4,800 screenings of adults entering the 4th Judicial Circuit Court system. The audit report makes the point several times that Drew expressed that the companys estimates were for actual screenings of students plus individuals facing criminal court proceedings. McCall included a response he said Drew sent to the Senate Education Committee in January 2017: Throughout the FY 201617 fiscal year it is estimated that the project will screen 7,100 children in the school systems, and adults within the court system of Nassau, Duval, and Clay counties. The specific measure and data source for this output data is the number of screeners administered. As FSU negotiated the contract with FPA in May and June 2016, FPA lowered its screenings estimate to 7,100 and changed language in the contract to say the estimate represented attempted screenings and not actual screenings. FPA expected to begin those screenings in September 2016, but difficulties in obtaining approval from FSUs College of Medicine to use human subjects delayed the screening program until Oct. 13, 2016. FPA began screening in Nassau County schools in November 2016. Screenings in Duval and Clay counties never occurred, according to the report. The auditor said that, to his knowledge, the College of Medicine had not received documentation that school or court personnel in Clay or Duval counties had been engaged in August to October 2016 about the potential of screening children and adults there. We are aware of e-mails dated February and March 2017, when FPA contacted schools in Clay and Duval counties to discuss the desire to screen schoolchildren in those schools, according to McCalls report. Despite the delays, Drew asserted in January 2017 that her company was still on track to administer 4,500 screenings in the schools by the end of June 2017. The report also notes that FPAs attorney sent a letter to House Speaker Richard Corcoran saying that the company had not only met its budgeted screening objectives, it had exceeded them by a factor of two. In April 2017, FPAs attorney stated in a letter to the Speaker of the House of Representatives that the screening deliverable was the number of letters sent to parents requesting permission to administer screenings to their children (8,363 letters were sent to parents of school children in Nassau County only). Previously in January 2017, the FPA CEO stated in a letter to the Senate Education Appropriations Committee that the specific measure and data source for program output was the number of screeners administered. The CEOs statement is contrary to the attorneys assertion, according to the FSU auditor. The (College of Medicine) stopped making payments to FPA at the end of March 2017 because of the low number of screenings administered and given that, startup activities should have been complete at that time. Permission from the FSU College of Medicine to screen individuals in the 4th Judicial Circuit Court did not come until April 2017 because of problems with the number of applications needed to work with human subjects and absences of key individuals on the university committee that reviews and approves research. Subsequently, in July 2017, the (College of Medicine) and FPA signed a consent agreement to mutually terminate the contract. We concluded the (College of Medicines) actions to cease making monthly payments and the agreement to terminate the contract were appropriate, according to the report. FPA financial records submitted to the Speaker of the House of Representatives in April 2017 showed that, of the $590,192 the (College of Medicine) had paid, FPA had recorded expenses to the project of $420,603. FSU returned to the states coffers $210,000 it had not paid out to FPA as well as an additional $100,000 that represented one-half of a fee FSU collected from the $1 million to administer the program.

While driving northbound on Lonnie Crews Road, she failed to negotiate a right-hand curve and struck a utility pole before the vehicle overturned on Lina Road. The vehicle came to a final rest on its roof at the shoulder of Lina Road, according to the Florida Highway Patrol report. Capallia-Easons sons, Nicholai Capallia and Nehemiah Capallia-Bird, were killed and six of the children were injured in the crash, including daughter Nina Capallia. A GoFundMe account was created to assist the father of the two boys who died, Andrew Bird. Bird lives in Michigan with daughter Nina. The GoFundMe account was created by Jason Wolford on behalf of Bird and his wife, Sara, to help cover travel costs, costs for the continued care of Nina, and burial costs for the two boys, according to the GoFundMe page.

(Domestic Designs) in Fernandina Beach in early 2001 fol lowing careers in the construction and legal industries. Growing up in Texas, Buddy began building custom homes in 1984 while Cindy practiced law. Following his custom home building in Texas, Buddy extended his construction experience through jobs in civil engineering, production and custom home construction and com mercial and residential roofing sales. Cindy practiced litigation with an emphasis in construction and insurance law. In 2001, they opened Domestic Designs Roofing, Inc. to concentrate solely on residential and commercial roofing and have never looked back. Buddy holds licenses from the state of Florida as both a Certified Roofing Contractor and a General Contractor and is OSHA certi fied. The company is licensed and insured. Since 2001, Domestic Designs has met the roofing needs for new and existing homeowners and commercial businesses in Nassau, Duval, St. Johns, Clay and Baker counties. The companys 5 crews install shingle, metal, tile and flat roofs as well as provide inspection, repair, additional installation and cleaning services for both residential and commercial customers. A full service company, Domestic Designs works with home owners and builders everyday to provide the highest quality, warranted roofing services at the lowest costs and least incon venience. Everyones needs are different. I enjoy working with individual homeowners and builders to solve their specific prob lems and meet their needs. I understand that any type of home or business construction can be challenging so it is our goal to provide every client with the most cost effective and least intru sive solutions. In todays fast-paced and economically challenging environment, you cannot expect anything less, said Boyd. The company offers a wide variety of products including GAF/ Elk, CertainTeed, Owens-Corning, Monier, Hanson and American Tile, all of whom offer a complete line of warranties. With recent changes to the state of Floridas wind mitigation roofing requirements, there are many new savings opportunities for residential and commercial owners. We offer clients several roofing options to save money on their homeowners and wind insurance policies, said Boyd. We work closely with local insur ance agents and have seen that many owners today are unaware of the savings opportunities available to them through policy discounts related to roofing modifications. We can evaluate, with owners, their individual needs and available options. Additionally, Domestic Designs partners with a certified solar technology and installation firm to provide energy efficient roofing solutions that reduce your carbon footprint and utility expense. We are excited about the unlimited opportunities we now offer in alternative energy resources and costs savings, said Boyd. To discuss your roofing needs or to simply learn more about potential roofing modifications, related to insurance savings or energy efficient roofing solutions, call Buddy Boyd at 904-3210626 or 904-753-1438. They look forward to working with you. Tesla, the great mass-market hope for electric vehicles, has seen its stock plunge of late. At 2:11 p.m. Wednesday, Tesla was trading at $255.06, hitting a 52-week low. The 52-week high was $389.61. Lack of production of the new Tesla 3, big quarterly losses, and cash drain are causing more detractors. Musk may have too many oars in the water. SpaceX, founded in 2002, has succeeded in some trials recently, which is great for Musk. There is a fast-growing satellite competition globally, which may produce a need for better rocket economics. There will have to be an economic model for the private rocket market. Musks early successes included the cofounding of Zip2, a web software company sold to Compaq in 1999 for $340 million. Musk then started an online payment company named X.com. It merged with Confinity and became PayPal in 2000. In 2002, eBay bought it for $1.5 billion. Tesla was founded in 2003 as an electric vehicle and solar panel company. In 2006, Musk birthed SolarCity, a solar energy services company that recently became a Tesla subsidiary. In 2015, Musk co-founded OpenAI, a nonprofit research company promoting friendly artificial intelligence. In July 2016, he co-founded Neuralink, a neuro-technology company focused on braincomputer interfaces. In December 2016, Musk founded The Boring Company, an infrastructure and tunnel boring company. He serves as CEO. Musk had two big, early successes and has an appetite for being groundbreaking and making money. His February 2018 net worth was $20.8 billion per Forbes, making him the 53rd richest person alive. He makes a lot of people scratch their heads with Tesla, including me. From a pocketbook standpoint, you cannot throw stones. Ubers autonomous vehicle wreck in Tempe, Ariz. took the life of a pedestrian and will give pause to the testing of autonomous cars in the short term. Uber wants to be the Amazon of Transportation, according to a senior exec I met on our recent trip. They grew 110 percent in 2017, despite a CEO controversy and subsequent replacement. They hope to manage a lower 60-percent growth rate in 2018. They have hired 5,000 people in the last eight months, upping the total to 18,000. These are corporate jobs, not drivers. Ubers restaurant delivery and freight divisions are booming. They are in a very dynamic stage as a company. Look for them to continue to build as a brand. Uber will have its IPO in 2019. The tragic death in Arizona will result in a more cautious approach to self-driving vehicles, to all our benefit. Electric vehicles and autonomous cars are here and coming. The question is how many, how soon. Teslas struggle for economic viability and this autonomous wreck will be setbacks in the short term. We are a resilient country of innovators that will make transportation better in our future. Have a safe and Happy Easter. Rick Keffer owns and operates Rick Keffer Dodge Chrysler Jeep in Yulee.

Heron Isles Community Development District David deNagy, District Manager The U.S. Department of Agricultures Natural Resources Conservation Service is seek ing assistance to complete restoration work of degraded wetlands, floodplains and forest lands.   NRCS is requesting pro posals from qualified individuals and organizations to implement restoration activities on eligible easement properties. Up to $250 million is avail able for these restoration proj ects in all 50 states. Potential applicants should review the funding opportunity called USDA-NRCS-US-WRPACEPEWPP-HFRP-18-01 at   https://www.grants.gov, which includes application materials and submission pro cedures. Applications must be received by May 18, 5 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. This request streamlines the restoration process and improves customer service while also allowing restoration entities of all sizes to submit proposals, said USDA Under Secretary Bill Northey. We always are looking for ways to improve our conservation efforts.   Restoration activi ties may include: designing restoration plans, installing conservation practices includ ing structural and vegetative, construction management and inspection. Agreements will be three years in length. Restoring wetland, flood plain, or forestland easements provide an abundance of bene fits including: improving water quality downstream; protecting nearby towns and other areas from flooding; enhancing and protecting wildlife habitat; and providing outdoor recreational and educational opportunities. All complete and compli ant proposals will be reviewed by an NRCS technical review panel established by the Chief of NRCS. Recommended pro posals will be distributed to the applicable NRCS state conser vationists for final selection.   For more information on wetland, floodplain and forestland ease ments, visit the   NRCS ease ments page. A key way to cope with a disaster is to have a   plan, accord ing to the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Know how to react before, during and after a disaster and know the   haz ards that could affect where you live, work and go to school. It is important for all Floridians, espe cially   individuals with access and functional needs, to plan ahead.     Your family may not be together when a disaster strikes. Know how to contact one anoth er and reconnect if separated. Establish a meeting place thats familiar to everyone and easy to find. Complete your   fam ily emergency communication plan   online   and print it onto   wal let-sized cards. Ensure all family members have a copy. Install the   FEMA mobile app. It provides severe weather alerts from the National Weather Service for up to five selected locations. Keep a   NOAA Weather Radio   tuned to the local emer gency station; monitor TV and radio. Follow mobile alerts and warnings about severe weather.     Evacuation orders can come with little notice. Planning ahead is vital to evacuating quickly and safely. Florida Division of Emergency Managements website   FloridaDisaster.org   has com prehensive information on what to do before, during and after a disaster under   Plan and Prepare. Plan   how to leave   and where to go if advised to evacuate. Fill vehicles with gas if an evacuation seems likely. Wear sturdy shoes and clothes. Those without cars should plan how to leave. Listen to a battery-powered radio and leave when told to do so. Leave early to avoid being trapped by severe weather. A list of nearby open shelters is on the   FEMA mobile app. Florida Division of Emergency Management has a list of   open shelters by county. Inform an out-of-state con tact about your evacuation plan. Unplug radios, TV and small appliances. Secure the home by locking doors and windows. Leave a note letting others know the plan for evacuation. If the home is damaged, shut off water, gas and electricity. Take   pets   along, but be aware some shelters or hotels only accept service animals. Check with neighbors who may need a ride. Follow recommended evac uation routes. If stranded when driving, stay in the vehicle, put on flash ers, call for help and wait until it arrives.   rf   Have disaster supply kits ready at all times in your home, work and vehicles. A disaster kit is a collec tion of basic items needed in the event of an emergency, and can be assembled well in advance. Have enough   food,   water   and other necessities, including all medications, in sufficient quantity for each family member to last for   at least   72 hours. Florida Division of Emergency Management has a list of items to include in   disas ter kits and www.Ready.gov   has a list of recommended emergency supplies. MySafeFlorida.org   is anoth er source for suggested items for disaster kits. Include sup plies for   individuals with disabili ties,   children,   seniors   or   pets, and protection against the Florida weather. Insect repellent and sunscreen should be in all kits, as well as rainproof gear for everyone.With the recent hesitation of the Army Corps of Engineers to issue the necessary permit to rebuild the marina, a significant amount of effort has been spent in response to the Corps concerns. All of Floridas federal legislators Congressman John Rutherford, Sen. Bill Nelson, and Sen. Marco Rubio have devoted staff resources to support the citys efforts. Direct conversations with those staff have regularly occurred every week this month (the next such discussion was scheduled for Thursday, March 29, with Sen. Rubios staff). The city commissioners have been actively engaged, as well, lending their political influence to resolve the issue. I expect that with this exten sive involvement of so many officials, the issue will be concluded soon and the rebuilding effort can finally commence. While that issue has drawn time and resourc es, the business and other projects in the city move forward at a different pace. A meeting of several key agencies took place on Wednesday, March 28, to discuss the ongoing interest and conceptual planning to open the Alachua Street railroad crossing. The agencies represented at the meeting included the Florida Department of Transportation (six attending), Genesee & Wyoming Railroad (three), a signal contractor (two), an engineering firm recommended by both the state and the railroad (two), and the city. In addition to my participation, Commissioner Philip Chapman and Main Street Interim Executive Director Arlene Filkoff were part of the tour and discussions. This safety-vested, hardhatted army marched from Ash Street north to Alachua Street and back, and then did it again over the course of several hours. Concepts and constraints were discussed, measurements were taken, and locations were marked at each of the intersections along Front Street: Ash, Centre, and Alachua. All of us sought to reach some level of understanding regarding the impact of the railroad on Front Street: what are the requirements and regulations for crossing signals, what is the role of pedestrian crossings, how will vehicular traffic and circula tion be affected, will the Front Street parking lots be impacted, can additional sidewalks be added to discourage or even restrict pedestrian activity on the railroad? Throughout our tour, the agency officials shook their heads at some of the pedestrian behaviors. One person, who was part of a tour bus group, ran awkwardly along the railroad bed, talking on a phone. Another person manhandled a baby carriage across the tracks in the middle of a block. A dog walker crossed the uneven ground at Alachua Street to get to Front Street. Now observed first-handed (by) railroad and state officials, those officials strongly believe that the safety issues must be addressed. It is a dangerous assumption to argue that mishaps have been infrequent and the slow speeds of the moving trains offer a false sense of security. My office at City Hall overlooks the crossing at Ash Street. I often witness the last minute no, last second dashes across the tracks by pedestrians and around the gates by vehicles to beat the slowly moving, yet nearly impossible to stop, hundreds of tons of unforgiving metal mass. While dining downtown, Ive seen people dart between the rail cars of a train that has paused briefly for switching, for the purpose of placing coins on the track. Common sense (as well as the law, by the way) dictates that pedestrians should cross at safely marked and signaled crossings. Ours are woefully substandard, requiring atten tion irrespective of what transpires at Alachua Street. The crossing and the improvements will cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Road and storm water improvements need to be made along Front Street, whether part of a crossing at Alachua or part of the redevelopment of the waterfront. Front Street is a broken and failing road. We talk about investing in waterfront and marina improvements, but the road to get to that area is crumbling. Is the waterfront encompassing the parking lots, the parks, the marina, the road, Alachua Street, the city-owned failing structure at 101 N. Front St. the jewel that many contend? If so, lets make an investment in that asset; if not, lets move on. This area has befuddled the community for decades. I believe that with the cooperation exhibited by the various agencies on Wednesday, the opportunity for area improvements has not been greater, and will likely never be replicated. Smaller projects included in the current budget move forward. The city will rebuild two beach walkovers. A pavement management study will examine every road within the city and provide the framework for an objective long-term financial plan to maintain and improve the roads. Grant funding for a small park located off of Simmons Road is being pursued. Improvements are being made to the water, wastewater, and stormwater systems. Art is being installed at the Egans Creek Park. The beaches are being renourished. These projects are manageable because of strong and capable staff who tirelessly serve our community. Most of their efforts do not attract attention: The directors and their staffs simply do their jobs and make Fernandina Beach a wonder ful place. Pretty soon, well start preparing for next years budget and another list of projects. I look forward to hearing from you about projects that interest you.rfrrf ntbrff frffrf ntrbrf INVITATION TO BIDThe City of Fernandina Beach will receive sealed com petitive responses for requirements for the following until no later than 10:00am, May 3, 2018.

This year, GSGC is offering summer camp experiences at two different locations. Camp Kateri near Gainesville and North Fork in Middleburg will be the selected sites for Girl Scout activities this summer and will offer a variety of session themes that will allow campers to earn Archery, Gardener, Adventurer, STEM and Survival badges. Camp Kateri will offer multiple resident camps throughout the months of June, July and August. Resident camps are overnight camps for girls of varying ages to practice independence, test their ideas and try new things. At Camp Kateri, campers can participate in activities such as swimming, kayaking, outdoor skills, arts and crafts, canoeing and archery. The North Fork Leadership Center will host day camps where campers can enjoy the wonders of nature with canoeing and archery. Day campers may also choose the STEM emphasis camp to combine nature with the sciences such as robotics, photography, astronomy and more. Beyond day camps at North Fork, the North Fork campsite offers girls the option of a twoor three-night stay to test out a traditional camp experience. Girls choosing to try a sampler overnight camp will sleep in a cabin, cook over a fire at night and enjoy customary camp activities including swimming, boating, shooting and making smores. Teens who have completed high school will be able to earn their Counselor in Training designations.

The Nassau County Planning and Zoning Board will conduct a workshop at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 3, to discuss the results of the Amelia Island Tree Protection Working Groups fact-finding mission and resulting proposed changes to land development regulations that apply only to the unincorporated areas of Amelia Island, according to a news release. The group completed its study and drafted an ordinance modifying tree protection standards for the unincorporated areas of the island with the intent to preserve and enhance the maritime forest which benefits the health, safety and general wellbeing of the inhabitants of Amelia Island, the release states. Proposed changes to the existing tree protection regulations in the unincorporated areas of Amelia Island include the following: All properties, including properties with an existing single family home, will be subject to tree protection standards. There will be a permitting process to remove protected trees for all properties including for individual homeowners. The list of protected trees will be expanded. The methodology for calculating tree preservation requirements will be modified. To view the draft ordinance and provide feedback electronically, visit the Amelia Island Tree Protection webpage at nassaucountyfl.com/886/ Amelia-Island-Tree-Protection. The Tuesday workshop will include a presentation from the Amelia Island Tree Protection Working Group and an open discussion of proposed changes between all interested parties. Anyone interested in the ordinance is encouraged to attend the workshop, review the proposed ordinance, provide comments and ask questions. The workshop will be held at the James S. Page Governmental Complex, located at 96135 Nassau Place in Yulee.

I had chalked him up years ago as yet another foul-mouthed boor who thought he was funny, but his views on how to stay young are not only funny, they are also very true. One of my favorite tips is for me to throw out nonessential numbers. I have never particularly cared for numbers anyway, so this was easy advice to follow. I have dumped all numbers dealing with my age, weight, height, and blood pressure. Let the medical types worry about them. The absence of these pesky numbers has improved my outlook considerably. Since I no longer monitor my age, I can move and act the age I feel. Some days I feel 35, while other times I am burdened with a higher number. Keep only cheerful friends, George tells me. We all know at least one person whose sole topic of conversation is his/her personal ailments, as well as everyone elses. Broken bones, debilitating conditions, surgery, complications from surgery, death and dismemberment are discussed with great fervor and at great length. No, thank you. I just smile sweetly and keep walking. Keep learning. I surprised the young (30-ish) mechanic not too long ago when he began a rather technical explanation of why my Check Engine light kept coming on. He stopped halfway through by saying, But youre not interested in that. I contradicted him and told him Id like to learn. We had a lively discussion about sensors that are supposed to tell your engine whether or not its getting enough oxygen. It was a win-win situation: He got to talk about something that interested him, and I got to exercise my brain. Enjoy the simple things. I am astounded by the number of people who never notice whats going on around them. A friend confided the other day that hed spent 30 minutes watching the news about that terrible snowstorm in the Northeast, and had shaken his head at the large number of people who had no electricity as a result of it. He turned off the news and hit the shower. Halfway through, it dawned on him that those people up north werent going to have a hot, soapy shower that morning, and would thereby miss the pleasure of feeling clean at the start of the day. Laugh often, long, and loud. I know one woman who has no sense of humor. I watch her in amazement. The rest of us crack up over a witty comment, and she just sits there, patiently waiting until we returned to the (oh, so important!) business at hand. After an afternoon alone with her, I came home and talked to myself in the mirror until I recovered my sunny disposition. Tears happen. Take the time to grieve, but then move on. I know each person has his/her own private timetable on this one, but George tells me that the only person whos going to be with me all of my life is me. I want to be alive while Im here. I like the next bit of Georges advice: Surround yourself with what you love. Family, pets, knickknacks, music, hobbies it doesnt matter. I looked around right after I read this advice and realized with glee that I had already done this! Drives my maid crazy, but everything sitting around reminds me of a trip or a person or a place that I particularly enjoyed. Cherish your health. If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help. The only thing I would add to this last bit is get help and then deal with it. Make the lifestyle changes you have to in order to continue having lunch dates and cheap movies on Tuesday. Dont take guilt trips. They always lead you down a deadend road. My own advice is dont have a pity party, either. That will paralyze you. The If Only and the ShouldaWoulda-Coulda games will rot your brain and kill your social life. Tell the people you love that you love them. Oh, boy. I know thats really hard for some people, but youll get the love back three times over. Besides, life can change in a heartbeat. Pun intended. George summed it up with Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. There are plenty of those moments right here in Paradise. I intend to live through as many of those moments as I can how about you? rEaster weekend often brings family and friends together for spiritual gatherings, Easter egg fun, and large family-style dinners. The Fernandina Beach Market Place farmers market is a great place to select farm fresh, yard eggs. Available at A Natural Springs Dairy and Boatright Family Farms, these eggs are perfect for coloring and for making deviled eggs, egg salad, or a high protein, low calorie snack. Another fun item available to make your Easter special is the Bunny Bread from Great Harvest Bread Company. This adorable honey bunny bread is made from just five ingredients. Whole wheat flour, yeast, honey, water, and salt are crafted by artisan bakers into the shape of a bunny. It may be too cute to eat! Oizeo, our Asian tapas vendor, as well as Roses Unbelievable Egg Rolls will both be back this Saturday. Look for the return of Jays Marketplace and their chopped olive salad, and Upstream Seafood will be back at the market with their salmon, scallops, and smoked salmon dip. Join these and another 30 or so vendors presenting seasonal produce, fresh baked breads, blooming baskets, landscaping plants, home made ice cream, soy candles, orchids, dips, jams, jellies and sauces, local shrimp, fresh fish, beef, pork, and more. Liam Carrol and Brooks Vanderhoff make up this weeks entertainment, known as Chill. Carrol is an 17-year-old student at Douglas Anderson School of the Arts. Living in Fernandina Beach, he has a passion for music and theater and he intends to pursue a career in movie acting and singing. Vanderhoff moved to the area from California four years ago. He is a 17-year-old junior and plays soccer for Fernandina Beach High School. He has played guitar for about 5 years and occasionally plays for his church worship team. After graduating high school, Vanderhoff plans to attend college and study law. Representatives from Fort Clinch State Park and the Friends of Fort Clinch will be onsite to provide information about the park and its recreational opportunities exploring Floridas natural and cultural resources. Stop by and learn how to become a Friend of Fort Clinch, adopt a sea turtle nest or attend an educational program at the park.

I read with interest the article in the Voice of the People in the March 23, 2018, edition of the News-Leader titled Caveat emptor regarding homeowner associations (HOAs) in our community and the State of Florida in gen eral. For full disclosure, I have been serving on the board of a local HOA for four years. Believe me when I tell you it is a thankless job. My wife and I have lived in the Fernandina Beach/Amelia Island area for 20 years. In those 20 years, we have lived in three communities controlled by an HOA structure both on-island and off-island. Freedom does not excuse anyone from responsibility. Not one time in those 20 years, in signing either a lease agreement or buying a house in an HOA community, have we ever had a jack-booted, leather trench coat-wearing Gestapo, KGB, NKVD or SSD agent and his snarling, drooling doberman pinscher standing over us with a hot spotlight screaming, We have ways to make you sign. We chose to live in these communities out of our own free will, and we knew beforehand the HOAs Covenants and Restrictions (C&Rs) and agreed to abide by them. If the author of the article did not know beforehand of her HOAs requirements, there are only two logical reasons she was not informed. First, she was simply not given a copy by her real estate agent or builder. In either case that is not the fault of the HOA. She needs to take it up with one of those above. There is something called full disclosure in contracts, but I wont get into the legality issues. The second logical reason, if she did receive a copy of the HOAs C&Rs, she simply didnt take time to read them. She titled her article caveat emptor. This term is used in contracts which means let the buyer beware which places the onus on the buyer of performing due diligence before making a purchase, in other words, common sense. These C&Rs are not fun nor interesting to read, but that doesnt excuse anyone from their caveat emptor responsibility regardless if it is or is not written in a contract, especially when making such a large investment in a home particularly in an HOA Deeded Community. I do not know of any HOA that does not have C&Rs available and published. Secondly, in Florida, we have duly elected representatives who serve in the Florida legislature. This organization of elected citizens passes lengthy legal documents called Florida statutes. Like C&Rs, they are not fun or interesting to read for the general public. HOAs and Condominium Associations (COAs) abide by FS 720 and others. These are the dos and donts in how to structure and manage either HOAs or COAs. Having lived in three HOA communities, I have never seen where an HOAs C&Rs did not have the foundation of these legal Florida statutes. As a rule, these C&Rs are established by the community developer before ownership of the community is passed to the homeowners association. In our case, our C&Rs were established in 2000-01. These C&Rs are registered with the county. It normally takes a supermajority vote by the homeowners to make changes to C&Rs. Any changes made to any HOAs C&Rs also must be registered with the county. These requirements protect the homeowners from any board trying to exercise dictatorial powers or establishing as the author of the article calls a totalitarian regime, over any HOA through arbitrarily changing C&Rs at their whim. If any board of an HOA or COA overreaches their authority established by their C&Rs and Florida statutes, there can be serious legal consequences. As board members, our main priority is the fiduciary responsibility for our total community, not to some disgruntled homeowner who didnt get their way. We go the extra mile in treating everyone fairly and without prejudice or favoritism. In many HOAs, including ours, there is an appeals process for a homeowner to go to the Board of Directors and dispute an issue of a ruling by the architectural review or modification committee. And the author is wrong: reasonable variances are given under certain circumstances. If the author of the article doesnt like the rules and regulations of her HOA, I suggest she first start with the Florida state legislature or become involved in her community as a contributor. The author of the article was correct in asking her question, Why on earth would you buy a house in a development with an HOA? My ques tion to her is, Why did you? There are areas in this community where I choose not to live for various reasons. There are clubs and organizations I dont belong to because I dont like some of their rules and requirements. There are churches I am not a member of because I dont agree with their beliefs and worship structure. There are people I dont associate with because I dont like the way they conduct themselves. The point is, I am free to choose where I live and with whom I want to associate. If you dont want to live in an HOA-controlled community then, by all means, dont live in one. For that matter, dont move to Florida because it is full of HOAs and COAs. In our 20 years living in this beautiful coastal area and HOA communities, we have received our fair share of HOA letters regarding our grass, our landscaping, our trees, our mailbox, our dog, our cars and our garbage cans. We have filled out our share of modification request on painting, landscaping, tree removal, fencing, etc. We complied because it was required and it was our accepted responsibility in living in these communities. Over the years, common decency, common sense, and common courtesy left our society around the same time along with personal responsibility and accountability. If you dont like what your HOA does, either get involved and legally make changes or sell and buy elsewhere where you can do whatever you please. That is your freedom. If you sell and move to a nonHOA-controlled community, I need to give you a warning: The city, the county, the St. Johns Water Management District, the EPA and other government organizations have restrictions as well, so be careful. rfD frrfrrrnf rfrrnrf Sen. Aaron Bean made such a haul for Northeast Florida at the state legislative session that he could have used a trailer to bring it all back. Maybe a U-Haul? This years session proved to be that bountiful for the Fernandina Beach/Nassau County/Jacksonville areas that Bean represents. Bean, who lives in Fernandina Beach, said it was one of the most productive sessions I have been involved with for Northeast Florida. The numbers tell the whole story. Like $50 million for beach renourishment, a bulk of it targeted for Northeast Florida. And another $25 to $50 million for revitalizing the St. Johns River watershed, which impacts Nassau County. Then there is $450,000 for drainage repairs at the Fernandina Beach waterfront, and funds to help plan the William Burgess Boulevard-Miner Road connector (as an alternate route to State Road 200/A1A in Yulee). This connector will help alleviate some of the congestion there. Not to overlook $2 million for improvements to the Port of Fernandina, as well as $400,000 for a kitchen project at the Council on Aging to encourage sound nutrition. Overall, it was quite a haul. In addition, Bean sponsored 12 bills at the annual session in Tallahassee. They included the following bills, which passed both chambers: Pro Bono Attorney Act: This legislation encourages attorneys to do pro bono work for children in the welfare system. Right now, lawyers must pay the court costs out of pocket when representing special-needs children. With the passage of this bill, we can remove the obstacles and unintended consequences of pro bono work thereby benefiting Floridas most vulnerable children, Bean says. Excess Credit Hours Act: This legislation brings financial relief to college students who earn excess credits. Right now in Florida, university students are penalized for taking too many classes, essentially punishing them for wanting to learn more, says Bean. The bill stops these penalties and reimburses qualifying students. This will help thousands of students annually. The total state budget amounted to $88 billion. Unlike the federal budget, and many other state budgets, it was balanced and included $3.3 billion in state reserves. This is a sound financial status for any state. In addition, the budget included two sales-tax holidays, a permanent reduction in sales taxes on commercial leases, and unprecedented per-student funding for K-through-12 education. Bean, a senior senator who also served four terms as the state representative here, is quite pleased with the entire haul. Northeast Florida will be better for it, even if we have to haul it ourselves. Steve Nicklas is a financial adviser and a chartered retirement planning counselor for a major U.S. firm who lives on Amelia Island. He is also an award-winning columnist. His business columns appear in several newspapers in North Florida and South Georgia. He has published a book of his favorite columns from the last 20 years, All About Money. The book is available in local stores and on Amazon. He can be reached at (904) 753-0236.On March 31, McGill Aviation will cease to do business at the Fernandina Beach Municipal Airport. For the last 20 years we have been honored to provide efficient, friendly, honest, and safe aviation ground support to the users of Fernandinas airport. While it was our intention to continue our family oper ated service, others had a different plan. That is the nature of the beast when operating on a leasehold facility and we are ok with that. I would like to thank the many people who have touched our lives over the last two decades. First, everyone who has worked at McGill Aviation. We have had over 240 great members of our team come and go. It has been my privilege to work with every one of them and personally rewarding to see some great aviation careers get started at McGill Aviation. Many thanks go to the Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 943 for hosting their monthly cookouts and, most rewardingly, conducting their Young Eagles events. We loved seeing the families and kids running around the building, and my personal favorite was getting to take kids on their first airplane rides. I will never forget that experience. I absolutely have to thank the many groups that have used our facilities over the years. Especially the Humane Society. Being such a dog lover, it was a pure joy to be able to help out such a worthwhile organization. Im sure the volunteers did not love setting up all of the tables for the great sales they used to have in the hangar with no air conditioning, but we were happy to have everyone hanging around and hopefully raising money for their now awesome facilities. It was a true honor to be included by Ken and Laurie Byrns in getting the Ben Byrns Runway Rally off the ground. We loved supporting this event honoring Ben and seeing the community get to experience a 5K run on the airport and truly run the runways. There are so many great memories from all of the groups that have visited the airport over the years, these include Leadership Nassau, the Boy Scouts, and the Amelia Island Montessori School, just to name a few. Thank you all for including us in your aviation education. We have to thank all of the aeronautical users that allowed us to provide them service over the years. Thank you for giving us the opportunity for being nationally recognized for helping coordinate the many large-use special events such as the Super Bowl, the many owner/pilot associations that have visited, and of course, the Concours dElegance. It was our privilege to be the first and last interaction with many of these visitors. Nathan Coyle, the citys most recent and best airport manager, needs thanks. He has brought professional airport management that this facility has never had. It has been a pleasure to work with him. I wish him the best in the incred ibly difficult job he has. Finally, I want to thank my father, John, for allowing me the opportunity to be part of such an amazing community. It was under his direction that I have been able to be part of so many great organizations. Thank you to the Amelia Island-Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber of Commerce, the Rotary Club of Fernandina Beach, the Amelia Island Montessori School, Marathon High, and the Trinity Love Hoblit Foundation that have allowed me to be part of your organization and serve in a variety of leadership positions. Although McGill Aviation will be gone, Tifini and I still plan on being active members of the community with our son and look forward to the next 20 years. Sean P. McGill, President McGill AviationrfntbThe Corps of Engineers issued a permit clearing the way for the construction of the mixed-use development at 14th and Lime.The city must now assure that the developer lives up to his representation to construct affordable housing on the property which was a key consideration in community support for the project. The representation was never formalized in documents as a commitment, e.g. deed restriction at the time of the approval by the City Commission. Early indications are the developer does not intend to develop affordable housing on the property. The application for a change in zoning allowing increased density and developing wetlands approved by the Commission indicates the developer will build a Class A multifamily development and high-quality building infrastructure including a pool and clubhouse offered at a market rent. This is not generally considered affordable housing, which HUD defines as the resident commits no more than 30 percent of their household income to housing including utilities. Households paying more than 30 percent are considered cost burdened and may have difficulty affording basic necessities including food, transporta tion and medical care. The 2016 Median household income in Fernandina Beach according to the US Census Bureau was $52,448. The average salary for a high school teacher in Nassau County is $47,190 and police/firefighter salaries are comparable. To avoid the misunderstanding at best or bait and switch disagreement currently occurring between the East Nassau Community Planning Area, a.k.a. Wildlight, and the county commissioners, the city must formal ize its understanding with the developer of the 14th and Lime project. The city must use any opportunity, e.g. per mits, variances, exceptions to the Comprehensive Plan, impact fees, request for services i.e. water and sewer, to formalize into perpetuity a commitment to provide afford able housing. John Barrickman Fernandina Beach The Community Service Committee of the Newcomers Club of Amelia Island wishes to thank all of the many local businesses and newcomer members who gave so generously and eagerly to our annual Give A Heart fundraiser. Through all of their wonderful dona tions and member raffle ticket sales, we were pleased to donate $4,010 to Barnabas Hurricane Relief Fund. After Hurricane Irma, Barnabas helped, and continues to help, 50 fam ilies in the county recover from the storm damage, lost housing and wages, and FEMA assistance. We are truly blessed to live in a community where businesses and citi zens are so caring and giving. Thank you all for your generosity.

The Duncan Lamont Clinch Historical Society will host Willie Sweatt, who will present Pilots and the Golden Age of the Port of Fernandina, at 7:30 p.m. Monday, April 9, at the Amelia Island Museum of History, located at 233 S. Third St. in Fernandina Beach, according to a news release. Willie Sweatt is a native Fernandinian. Born in 1944, when the town was small and undiscovered except by the south Georgia folks who had beach cottages for summer vacations, he enjoyed adventures boating and fishing in Egans Creek basin, the ocean (and) beaches, and the Amelia River. He graduated from Fernandina Beach High School in 1962, went first to the University of Florida, and then to the U.S. Naval Academy. He went Surface Warfare after graduation, getting his first command of an ocean-going salvage ship. In 1979, he left the Navy, got a Merchant Marine license as Chief Mate, and sailed for Military Sealift Command. He got his Unlimited Masters Oceans license. Coming back to Fernandina, he piloted for Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base, ran tugs for Sun State Marine, worked with dredge companies, did some towing and salvage work. When Desert Storm was developing, the American merchant marine companies needed mariners, so he went back to sea on super tankers. When his elderly parents needed help, Willie came back home. He towed for Towboat U.S., helped run Amelia River Cruises, and now has a boat dealership in town. Willie loves history and genealogy. Hes always happy to swap stories and the old-timers or help newcomers feel at home, the release states. Sweatt will discuss the bar pilots from the golden age of shipping in Fernandina. The release explains, It was a tight knit group of mariners who had to risk their lives to assist vessels over the bar in dangerous situations. This was a boom period. Fernandina had natural resources that could rfntbfftThe acclaimed drama Doubt: A Parable, winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play, opens April 5 at Amelia Community Theatre, located at 207 Cedar St. in Fernandina Beach, according to a news release. This thought-provoking play takes place in a Catholic school in the Bronx in 1964. Sister Aloysius, the school principal, suspects the priest assigned to the school of having an improper relationship with a male student who seems troubled. No solid evidence of wrongdoing exists and details from a young nun who teaches at the school are ambiguous. Sister Aloysius begins her own investigation, questioning the students mother, and confronting the priest, Father Flynn, who denies the accusations, the release states. It continues, Thus begins a gripping mystery, written by John Patrick Shanley, set in the midst of a power struggle between the old way of doing things and the new ways, both in the church and society. A traditionalist, Sister Aloysius fills her fountain pens with a bottle of ink on her desk. To her, Father Flynns use of a ballpoint pen is a tangible sign of his undesirable progressive ways. He has the advantage of being able to voice his ideas from the pulpit. Sister Aloysius has only the power of her convictions. The play is less about scandal, and more about the nuanced quest of moral certainty, wrote a reviewer for Variety when the show premiered on Broadway in 2005. It is blunt, yet subtle, manipulative, but full of empathy for all sides, stated Newsday. Catherine West, who was last on ACTs stage in the lead role in Wit, plays Sister Aloysius. Director Jennifer Webber said in the release, I am excited to introduce cast members Sam Cobean, Katie Stanley, and Sara Payne to our audiences as they make their ACT debut as Father Flynn, Sister James, and Mrs. Muller. Doubt is sponsored in memory of Char Bachman, an actor, director, and artist in the Fernandina Beach community who passed away in 2017, the release indicates. This show was one she greatly admired, and there will be a table with remembrances of Bachman in the theater lobby. In conjunction with the run of this production, ACT has partnered with Amelia Lifelong Learning for a course that studies and compares the play and movie versions of Doubt. The movie starred Meryl Streep. The class, taught by Ron Kurtz, will run from April 5 to May 10. To register, visit amelialearning.com. Performances of Doubt are at 8 p.m. April 5-7, 12-14, and 19-21 and at 2 p.m. April 15.

The ensemble was named Cleveland Quartet Award winner for 2016-17 and 2017-18 and has been awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant and Hunt Family Award, one of the inaugural Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Awards.

We will imagine the miracle of our Lord and Savior overcoming death and the greatest result of all the Risen Christ walking again among His followers and charging them with the mighty task that has come to be known as the Great Commission. The Day, of all days, that changed the lives of every Believer on the planet, forever and always! The Day, for all of those people who heard Him then and all Believers since who have been commanded to Go and Make Disciples. What a wonderful day of remembrance and celebration! But wait a minute maybe we are being way too selffocused? There are other things we think of too, arent there? Give it a minute of thought and really search your mind. Besides a gathering or reunion of family, eating great food, celebration, and Easter egg hunts for the kids, arent there some lingering questions in the back of your mind left unanswered? Why is it that many churches are filled to capacity or more crowded during Easter than any other time of the year, except following a national or local disaster? How many of these extra people are there just because of tradition, spouse or family urging, expectation of others in some way, for their childrens sake or because its expected? How many people are thought to be C&E Christians (Christmas and Easter) those people who only attend church on Easter, dust off the old navy suit and put on a tie? How many of us have been once-a-year people at some point in our lives or maybe still today? What can we do to become Easter People all year long and reach out each day of the year to do as Christ commanded to Go and make disciples? How many of the people who are around us are celebrating the holiday and really dont have a clue about what the Great Commission is all about and have a misguided definition of the truth? How many wish they had a true, sincere and believing guide to help them understand and truly open their hearts and minds to Christ and be Easter people all year long? What can we, especially as believers, do to change that for sure, and how and when do we start to reach out? The simple truth is that many people are present during these times for the simple reason that this is or has been a social structure in their lives, was built upon modeling of their parents, families and others. There is the simple significance of participation so that others will think positive of them. They want to spend time with near or far families. They are a part of what our society has established over many years, no matter what their level of belief may be. The reality of these things is a plain, honest fact of life. But if we really believe, we have to step up, see the big picture and truly know that we are dealing with matters of eternity when we say we are saved and decide to follow Christ! The other major truth is that a very high percentage of these holiday people have a great number of questions on their minds no matter what they say. We may not be aware of that because we havent had or taken the opportunity to approach them, speak with them and try to form productive relationships with them. Many of these men, women and children are reluctant to come forward and admit how they feel or discuss questions about faith and values in their personal lives for many reasons. They may have carried these feelings with them for years. The lack of leap of faith may be a byproduct of their childhood, family or married values. Others may also feel that their lives are going along just fine for now and believe only in the pleasures and rewards that their earthly life provides. There are also many that are waiting for someone to reach out to them in Christian love, faith and patience. They are waiting for believers to give enough of themselves to reach just one other person and make a disciple for Christ. It is the Christian duty of all of us to serve and reach out for His Kingdom. There are so many waiting, wondering and willing for us to meet with them to answer the many questions and get to simply know Him! If you or someone you know is struggling with questions and answers about Faith, YOU can rfntbThe resurrection of Jesus Christ, celebrated on Easter Sunday, is the pivotal point in this worlds history. To grasp the magnitude of it, its important to see that the resurrection wasnt a weird and inexplicable event that took place in the world as it had always been. Rather, says theologian N.T. Wright, it was the introductory event within the world as it had, at that instant of Christs rising, begun to be. The resurrection of Christ was the commencement of Gods promised new creation. And that new creation, not better morals or happier times or more fulfilling lives is the ultimate, mindboggling hope of the Christian faith. Such hope springs from the joyous truth that this new creation anticipates our involvement. In Romans 8:20-22, we see that creation this world, fashioned by God at the beginning of time eagerly awaits our redemption. In these few verses we learn that our planet, including Amelia Islands 13-mile beach, longs for mankind fully redeemed and once again the perfect image of God to fully engage; not to selfishly exploit it or passively neglect it, but to care for it, appreciate it as a gift from God, and empower it to be as fruitful, productive, and beautiful as he intended. The passage reads: For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. For us to take part in Gods redemptive plan, its crucial that we Gods people who live in this post-resurrection era see that its because of mankinds Fall that the creation was subjected to futility. We must grasp the fact that its because of Adam and Eves sin, that creation including Fernandina Beachs maritime forests needs to be set free from its bondage to corruption. We must act on the knowledge that it is because of mans sin that the whole creation, including the downtown waterfront, has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. And we must lay claim to the fact that as a direct result of Christs resurrection all creation, including every inch of our island, will one day obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. In these verses, Paul again pictures Israels Exodus from Egypt. But here, Wright points out, hes not drawing parallels to Jesus or the Church. Instead, hes the using the imagery of the Exodus to make a point about the planet. Hes telling readers that our physical world, like the children of Israel, is enslaved (verse 21). The whole of creation, Paul says, has been suppressed by mankinds sin and thereby thwarted from flourishing as he intended. Even so, creation detects that its redemption is nigh. Creation itself, in some mysterious way beyond our knowing, perceives that man and the world were made for one anoth-rrffntbtrrffntbf SCHERER Continued on 6B DOSTER Continued on 6B rfntbnrGood Friday on March 30 is the Friday before Easter when we remember the crucifixion of Jesus.

make a difference in their lives! We all remember the day we were saved, but perhaps we didnt realize then how the Holy Spirit led us down that aisle in church or at that gathering or at that revival to commit ourselves to Him? After we received Gods non-returnable gifts of salvation and eternal life, did we lose our way and need to correct our course as we travel down that road of justification towards sanctification? Easter is not only a time of celebration but of rededication as well! All of us come to a fork in the road of our continuous journey of spiritual learning; one of the paths is worn and wide from so many people choosing it and making the easy choice and the other path is narrow and much less traveled!

Instead, because of mans rebellion, the creation has been subjected to futility and decay. But Easter changed everything. Because of Christs resurrection, Gods people will be redeemed. And one day they too will be resurrected. The creation waits with eager longing. Our beach, greenway, and marsh are literally standing on tiptoe because somehow, in a realm beyond our five senses, the physical world aches for the day when we and it together fully become new creations. Its been waiting a long time. From the day of mankinds Fall, when thorns and thistles first infested the ground, Gods creation has whimpered and sighed as if in the throes of childbirth. For all these years it has longed to emerge from the effects of mankinds Fall; to re-revealed in all its glory. The day is coming when the resurrected Christ comes again, this time with his resurrected people. And because of Easter, he comes not to destroy the world, not to discard it or to make something altogether new; he comes, as he declares in Revelation 21:5, to make all (existing) things new. This is the climax and the hope of the Christian story. Richard Doster lives in Fernandina Beach with his wife Sally.
