rfn A rP fS ntb tb A b R rf E FntbT b LtN c b Ob PrrbP rc b Prc R rf Prb Srb A Jacksonville engineer told the City Commission he had no clearcut answer to the issue of siltation in the Fernandina Harbor Marina but that fixing the problem was a matter of money. March 31, 1993 At its March 22 meeting, the Fernandina Beach Planning Advisory Board approved a newly crafted sec tion for the citys Comprehensive Plan titled Goal 5P: Port Sub-Element and focusing on operations at the Port of Fernandina. The item will go before the City Commission at a future meeting for consideration of adoption. In 2013, the Ocean Highway and Port Authority presented its 10-year Master Plan to the Fernandina Beach City Commission as required by Florida statute. That plan is supposed to be included in the citys Comprehensive Plan, but commissioners tabled action on the plan because commissioners at the time did not agree with everything that was in the Master Plan, according to City Attorney Tammi Bach. In a telephone call Tuesday with the News-Leader Bach reiterated that the OPHA is required by Florida statute to follow citys rules to the extent fea sible. She also said that a primary goal of the two bodies is to work together on issues rather than be adversarial. The ports plan is supposed to be as consistent as possible with the citys Comprehensive Plan, but commissioners heard from a number of residents who were concerned about items in the plan such as shipping coal through the port and expanding the ports physical footprint. Commissioners never brought the ports Master Plan back for reconsideration, so since 2013, Bach and Kelly Gibson, the citys planning manager, have worked to create the new port ele ment of the citys Comprehensive Plan. Despite all that work, Bach told PAB members that the OPHA is not bound to follow any of the citys requirements and the city has no way to enforce the standards and goals in the new section of the Comprehensive Plan. We would love for the port to accept it and adopt it also, but they dont have to, Bach told the board. The issue I want you all to understand is that, if the port does not adopt it or goes even fur ther and rejects it, then the question is what happens if theres things in here that they are supposed to do and they do the opposite? What enforcement does the city have? Nothing. City Commissioner Chip Ross is the commissions representative to the OHPA and said during the PAB meeting that, while the city doesnt tech nically have any enforcement power, money may be a motivator for the port to comply with the citys Comprehensive Plan. There is no real enforcement, but for the port to get funding through the (Florida) Ports Council, they have to be in compliance with the citys Comp Plan, Ross. So, they want to get fund ing through the Ports Council, which is the main way they get funding and grants from the state, then they have to be in compliance with the Comp Plan. Ross, who was elected to the City Commission last year, was one of the many residents who objected in 2013 to the City Commission incorporating the ports Master Plan into the citys Comprehensive Plan. Ross is a neigh bor of the port. As PAB members reviewed the new Port Sub-Element section of the Comprehensive Plan, many expressed concern about shipping goods by truck or rail only. The line should read efficient movement of water-borne goods through the port, PAB member David Beal said. Rail and truck certainly is a component of the intermodal transportation into the port, but it should only be in reference Y ou gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger... These lyrics to a popular 1990s song by British R&B singer Desree became the personal mantra of local resident Teresa Vonceil King during her 32-year career with the United States Army. I used to listen to that song first thing every morning when I woke up. It got me pumped to start the day, recalls King, now retired after achieving what the federal governments website calls the epitome of success as an enlisted soldier in the United States Army the rank of command sergeant major. King retired from the U.S. Army in 2007, in Heidelberg, Germany, after serving as the highest-ranking noncommissioned officer at the Installation Management Command DirectorateEurope. Formed in 2002, the IMC provides support to soldiers, civilians and family members of seven Army garrisons in Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Italy. She had been there for eight years and was on her second tour of duty there. She had planned to stay in Germany in retirement since it was a central location for feeding the insatiable appetite for travel she acquired while serving in the military, but family matters would soon bring her all the way back to where her story began. King is one of three children born to Johnnie and Dorothy M. King of Fernandina Beach. Her father, age 87, still lives in the family home. Her sister lives out of state. Her mother and a brother are now deceased. It was the death of her mother that brought King back from Europe. Although neither of her parents served in the military, she had several uncles who did, and her parents believed in providing structure and discipline. Her father worked for Rayonier, and her mother worked at Container Corporation of America while raising their family. Her uncle, Commander Master Chief Petty Officer James H. Mullens, served 34 years in the U.S. Navy. Mullens was the colorful character who inspired King to join the military. She recalls that when her uncle retired from military service, the city of Fernandina Beach gave him a ticker tape parade and a key to the city. King and both her siblings would follow Mullens example. Her brother, Johnnie King Jr., served briefly in the Army. Her sister, Merle R. King, served 24 years in the U.S. Air Force. During her own service, Teresa King often turned to her uncle for advice. He became one of many male mentors she is grateful to have had in her long career. The first thing she did upon retirement was to look up all those who had helped her along the way and personally thank them. She says it has been gratifying to reconnect with many of her former colleagues and maintain that contact in retirement. A graduate of Fernandina Beach High Schools Class of King enlisted in the Army three days after she turned 18. If you come from small town U.S.A. and have a sense of structure and order, you will do well in the military, she advised. I have always been a take-charge kind of person, admits King. To make her point, she shared an early story that took place soon after she completed basic training. She was among 250 soldiers in Advanced Individual Training at Fort Jackson, S.C. The class included not only new privates, but also higher-ranking soldiers who had reenlisted after an absence from the service. The Association of Zoos & Aquariums announced Tuesday that White Oak Conservation in Yulee has been certified by the AZAs independent Accreditation Commission, according to a news release. The Association of Zoos and Aquariums certifies only aquariums and zoos that meet our demanding accredi tation standards, which are universally recognized as the gold-standard in our profession, AZAs president and CEO Dan Ashe said in the release. By achieving AZA-certification, White Oak Conservation demonstrates that it is committed to exemplary animal care and welfare, educational and inspiring guest experiences, and AZAs mission to conserve our worlds wild animals and wild places. To be certified, White Oak under went a thorough investigation to make certain it has and will continue to meet ever-rising standards, which include animal care and welfare, veterinary programs, conservation, and safety. AZA requires certified related facilities to successfully complete this rigor ous review and inspection every five years in order to be members of the Association. The certification process includes a detailed application and a meticulous on-site inspection by a team of trained zoo and aquarium professionals. The inspecting team observes all aspects of the institutions operation in areas such as animal care and welfare, keeper train ing, staff, animals, conservation efforts, veterinary programs, financial stability, risk management, and more. Finally, top officials are interviewed at a formal commission hearing, after which cer tification is granted, tabled, or denied. Any facility that is denied may reapply one year after the commissions deci sion is made. AZA is the accrediting body for the top zoos and aquariums in the United States and eight other countries.

Each day the class was dismissed for lunch and marched back to the barracks. One day, when no one came to escort the class at the appointed time, King took the initiative. I have always been a chow hound. I was hungry. Everybody was just waiting around for someone to come get us. When none of the higher-ranking soldiers made a move, I organized everybody and marched us all back to the barracks, shouting cadence and saluting officers as we went, she said. Her commanding officer initially bawled her out for her audacity, but a few days later rewarded her with a threeday pass. Nobody got a threeday pass during AIT, King said. From that day on, I decided to do more than was expected of me whenever an opportunity came my way. King briefly left the Army in the late 1970s to get married. Her husband was from Birmingham, Ala., where they settled. She went to work for AT&T. Birmingham was not ready for me and I wasnt ready for Birmingham! she said she soon realized. Within the year she re-enlisted in the Army. King would marry three times, once to a civilian and twice to military men. In the end, they did their thing and I did mine, she reflected. She has two adult children. A daughter, Tiffany King, is studying holistic medicine in Clearwater. Her son, Nate Bacon, graduated from high school in Germany during Kings first tour of duty there. Bacon served four years in the National Guard before becoming an elementary schoolteacher in Jacksonville. He is raising his two children, ages 5 and 6. Over the course of her career, King was stationed in Virginia, New Jersey, Kansas, North Carolina, Korea and Germany. Those ugly patches the places nobody wants to go they get you promoted, she advised. Her specialty became logistics. She was involved in the coordination of trucks, boats, and trains whatever kind of vehicles were needed to move troops from one point to another. Her job also required knowledge of the mechanics needed to keep vehicles moving. The deployment of Army personnel during the relief effort following the devastation of Hurricane Andrew in 1999 was especially gratifying for King. We really felt appreciated. Citizens lined the roads and welcomed our convoys all along the way, she recalled. King would twice serve as a drill sergeant, initially for two years at Fort Dix, N.J., where she was the only female instructor at the time. Later she became a drill sergeant instructor for three years at Fort Knox, Ky. Another CSM with a very similar name, Teresa L. King, came after her as the first female boss of a drill sergeant school. That non-commissioned officer made national headlines in a successful bid to regain her position after being fired. I had no female mentors, so I made it a point to become one myself, said King. She observed that some male soldiers, just like their counterparts in other walks of life, had difficulty treating females as equals. Some men tried to be protective of you like they would be towards their sister or girlfriend. On the other extreme, some got ugly with you, she said. Neither extreme should be acceptable to female soldiers who, King believes, should carry their own weight. One of her favorite sayings was babies and monkeys are cute, but you arent that. While she saw improvement in working relationships between men and women over the course of her career, she noted there is still a long ways to go in all walks of life. Some men just cant say congratulations, you did a good job to a woman. King maintains she would gladly return to military life tomorrow, but as with many long-term relationships her time with the U.S. Army turned out to be more complicated than she knew. Only well into retirement has she begun to come to terms with some of the issues she faced as soldier. I found out you dont need to have been in combat to experience (post-traumatic stress disorder), shared King. It wasnt until she returned home from Europe that she began experiencing symptoms including anxiety attacks, sleeping problems, decreased appetite and fears of going out at night alone. She began having flashbacks to some incidents from her life in the military. A soldier once collapsed after physical exertion and died in her arms. Another soldier in her command shot himself to death over a failed romance while on duty. And there was a personal assault she says she is not ready to talk about. She filed a claim for post-traumatic stress disorder with the Veterans Administration in December, and it has since been approved. She is receiving treatment and reported it is helping. As for her goals in retirement, King is active in Eastern Star and several related fraternal organizations as well as the NAACP, and she maintains her passion for travel. Among the countries she has visited are France, Scotland, Luxemburg, Spain, Poland, and Croatia, and she says she cant wait to travel again. She admits she spends considerable time watching The Travel Channel and planning future trips. King is also focused on spending time with her two young grandchildren. A new challenge, she says, is minding my own business. She jokes at how difficult that can be for a take-charge kind of person.

King was the highest-ranking noncommissioned officer at the Army Installation Management Command Directorate-Europe. If you come from small town U.S.A. and have a sense of structure and order, you will do well in the military, she said.Continued from 1A rfntCommemorative coins have been used to reward soldiers for a job well done since the time of the Roman Empire. Typically a superior officer presents a coin to someone under his or her command in acknowledgment of special achievement. Coins are often concealed inside a handshake followed by an explanation as to the reason it has been awarded. But there are variations on the theme. Coins can also be exchanged as mementos for special occasions such as visits to military installations. Though they originated in the military, coins displaying an insignia or emblem of the unit to which one belongs are now used by some civilian organizations as well. To promote morale within a group, members are encouraged to carry the coin on their person at all times. In recent years in the military, they have also become known as challenge coins. The challenge comes when someone pulls out their coin, slaps it on a bar and demands to see the other persons coin. The outcome determines who will buy the drinks. According to mentalfloss.com, every U.S. president since Bill Clinton has used special commemorative coins designed for their administrations. The most coveted of all is the one reserved as a memento of having shaken the hand of the president of the United States.

Hiring employees for your small business can help lighten your workload. But it also cre ates the need to manage some thing you didnt need to worry about when you were handling all aspects of your business by yourself: Payroll. Even if you have just one employee, you need to do pay roll accurately and in compli ance with all legal and regula tory responsibilities. If you dont, you could incur costly penal ties from the Internal Revenue Service. Before you hire your first employee and put processes in place to handle payroll, make sure you pay attention to two important details. Register for an Employer Identification Number (EIN). The IRS requires that you have one before you hire employees. You can apply for an EIN online at www.irs.gov or contact the IRS to establish one. Your EIN will be used for reporting taxes and other documents to the IRS. Youll also need your EIN when reporting employee information to state agencies. Also, check to determine whether or not youll need state or local ID numbers to process taxes. Know the difference between an employee and an independent contractor. Laws and requirements are different for them when it comes to with holding and paying taxes and in how you conduct your working relationship. A few key differ ences include: Generally, employers pro vide employees with all the equipment, supplies, software, and tools they need to do their jobs. Independent contractors use those that they own. Employees typically have their work hours set by their employers, whereas indepen dent contractors control their own work hours. With employees, you, the employer, will need to withhold income tax and Social Security and Medicare tax from their pay checks. Youll also need to remit federal and state unemployment taxes. When hiring help, employ ees must complete IRS Form W-4 (Employees Withholding Allowance Certificate) so you can withhold the proper amount from their pay. Conversely, indepen dent contractors are respon sible for directly remitting tax payments; you do not withhold taxes from their compensation. Ask them to complete IRS Form W-9 (Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification), which certifies they are not employees. Independent contractors send you an invoice for services rendered. After you have these key action items checked off your list, you can concentrate on other details such as decid ing on a pay period and either choosing a payroll system or outsourcing your payroll admin istration. For more information about payroll requirements, visit the Understanding Employment Taxes page of the IRS website. Also consider contacting your local SCORE chapter to get insight from a mentor who can point you to the right resources and guide you as you grow your business.

David deNagy District Manager rfWhat is Florida low country living, and what does it look like? Ask Jenn Kjellman, market ing manager for Dream Finders Homes, and shell describe it as double porches, shiplap and a palette drawn from coastal colors, and that is the style of home Dream Finders is building at Wildlight. Despite not having a model house up yet, they have already sold their first home. Kjellman attributes that to Dream Finders unique marketing effort in 2015: They built and opened for inspec tion their Stadium model home at Everbank Field in Jacksonville. That initiative has resulted in many potential homebuy ers doing a walk-through. The Stadium is just one of the house plans they will build at Wildlight. As Kjellman describes it, The Stadium home model is a two story plan with 3,094 square feet of indoor/outdoor living space. The home has a large open floor plan with three bed rooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and a home theater (or) fourth bedroom. With the master suite downstairs and all secondary bedrooms and a loft upstairs, the family will have plenty of com munal space, as well as privacy. In addition, she says, in keeping with the vision of Wildlight, there are grand dou ble porches on the front of the home and an oversized outdoor living space on the side of the home perfect for enjoying the natural beauty of the surround ings. Kjellman added that their one-story floor plans are per fect for folks that want to age in place. With color schemes of white, light grey and accents of blue and teal, the design does say coastal. Stainless steel appliances (although black appliances are quickly taking over, according to Kjellman), easy care tile often with a wood-look, and granite countertops are just some of the basics. Home prices for Wildlight are currently in a range from $278,000 to $323,000, according to their website, www.dream findershomes.com/wildlight. Only two homebuilders have been officially selected so far by Raydient Places+Properties, the developer of Wildlight, and Dream Finders is one of them. They have purchased some 14 lots, but more are expected down the road. D.S. Ware is the other homebuilder. Dream Finders was founded in 2008 and is responsible for more than 30 communities in Northeast Florida including Eagle Harbor and Eagle Landing. They just finished 120 singlefamily homes and 18 townhomes in the popular Nocatee area and here in Nassau County, their plans are the heart of Plummer Creek, the Dunes of Amelia, Amelia Concourse and Harbor Concourse.rfntbrtttCOURTESY DREAM FINDERS HOMESThe Stadium Home model is a two-story plan with 3,094 square feet of indoor/outdoor liv ing space.

We dont need to be using the port for general warehousing. I dont know what the answer is but I dont think that the intention was that this becomes a warehouse and has nothing to do with water traffic, fellow PAB member Donna Lewis said. Ross pointed out to the PAB that the citys Comprehensive Plan does require that goods at the port be water-borne at some point. If you look at the Comp Plan and you look at the land use there under waterfront, it says it has to either come in by boat or go out by boat, Ross said. So, you cant use the port to bring something in and then send it out by rail. The port cant be a transfer station. It has to under our Comp Plan one part of the journey has to be on a boat. It has to come in by boat or it has to leave by boat.Continued from 1A rfrAlthough officials with the Port of Fernandina have made announcements that they are planning to build a lignin storage tank for use by LignoTech Florida, that company says it has no plans to use the port as a storage facility. We plan to self-contain everything, LignoTech Floridas Supply Chain Manager Scott Saettel told the News-Leader. We would have no need or reason to store anything at the port. Laura DiBella, who has been acting as interim port director and is also executive director for the Nassau County Economic Development Board, first mentioned the ports intention to build a lignin storage facility at a Dec. 29 meeting of the City Commission. DiBella gave commissioners an overview of operations at the port. We are talking about helping out LignoTech with that need, which will require both liquid and possibly dry, she said at that meeting. I dont know if it is going to be going through the port, but we have spoken openly about that in our meetings. That is something that would be very complementary with industry that is here. Last year, DiBella applied to the Florida Department of Transportation for funds toward the $5 million cost of building the storage tank at the port that LignoTechs Saettel says the company does not want. A one million gallon storage tank is needed for this operation and the ideal setup would be at the Port of Fernandina where the lignin could be delivered via rail and the tank managed by Kinder Morgan, who specialized in these types of applications, reads the Seaport Development Application FY 17/18. The application for the grant was submitted when Nassau Terminals LLC, owned by Kinder Beginning this month, the government will start sending out new Medicare cards, launching a yearlong effort to reach 59 million people enrolled in Medicare. Florida residents are scheduled to start receiving their new Medicare cards after June 2018. If a friend or family member in a different state gets their card first, dont fret. The cards are scheduled to go out at different times. Prior to this new rollout, Medicare cards had the individuals Social Security number on them. This has been problematic because, if a wallet or purse was lost or stolen, someone could use the information from the Medicare card to steal that persons identity. The new Medicare cards will not include a Social Security number. Instead, it will contain an 11-digit Medicare number. There will be some bumps along the way, so you can continue to use your old Medicare card until Dec. 2019. If you think Social Security might not have your current address, call 1-800-772-1213 or check your online Social Security account at ssa.gov/ myaccount. When you get your new Medicare card, it is recommended that you shred or cut up your old card before putting it in the trash. Social Security or Medicare will never contact you via phone asking for your Social Security or old Medicare number. If this happens to you, hang up. This is a scam. For example, Joe Hernandez, 65, who lives in California, received a call from a man who told him that Medicare was going to issue new cards and that he needed to verify some information, including his name, address and Social Security number. Joe said that he doesnt give his Social Security number out so the caller put his supervisor on the phone. The second person said the government needed to make sure it had Joes correct information. Feeling pressured, Joe gave his Social Security number, and as soon as he gave it out, the caller hung up the phone. Joe was just scammed! The new Medicare cards are free, and you do not need to do anything to receive one. They are being sent automatically to everyone enrolled in the program. Do not give out any personal information to callers who contact you by telephone. If you suspect a caller may be trying to scam you or commit fraud, hang up and immediately report it to the Federal Trade Commission fraud line at 1-877-438-4338.

OHPA Commissioner Danny Fullwood said that the sale of port operations to WTF did not affect the plans for the lignin tank, which included building the tank on the existing footprint of the port inside a fenced area. DiBella said that it is not unusual for the industry to have a storage tank off-site, to be used in the case of an emergency, such as a hurricane. She said that, if an emergency affected the LignoTech facility, the company could continue to service its customers from the storage facility. Recently, though, DiBella said that plans for a lignin tank were never any more than a discussion, even though the port applied for the grant. At a joint meeting between the Fernandina Beach City Commission and the Ocean Highway and Port Authority in March, Clyde Davis, attorney for the OPHA, said the port was considering locations where it could build a storage tank to be used for lignin, a byproduct of operations at Rayonier Advanced Materials that will be used by LignoTech to manufacture a variety of binding agents. Saettel said that the OHPA had approached LignoTech Florida and told the company there was grant money available for projects such as the storage tank, but that neither OHPA or Worldwide Terminals has made a formal proposal to LignoTech regarding building a storage tank at the port. As for the grant application, Saettel said, They were probably just doing their due diligence. Any plans to build a storage facility at the port may be affected by recent changes to the port element of the citys Comprehensive Plan. The citys Planning Advisory Board met on March 22 to approve changes that, among other things, would ensure that the port is not used as a storage facility. In the budget signed by Gov. Scott earlier in March, the port received $2 million for a new crane and warehouse.f DiBella ntt tbnbt ntb n rfn ttbttt tttbbrtt bttt nt f NL 6 col. Wed 04.04.indd 5 4/3/18 4:08 PM

Championed by state Sen. Aaron Bean, R-Fernandina Beach, and state Rep. Cord Byrd, R-Neptune Beach, the program will help fight hunger by providing warm, nourishing meals for homebound and nutritionally challenged seniors, as well as more than doubling the number of seniors served through nutrition programs by 2020; delivering nutritious meals to low-income veterans of all ages; providing emergency assistance as a disaster response center with back-up generators; and serving as a Nutrition Support Program model for the entire State of Florida. Its a great day for Nassau County, said Bean in the release. Through a team effort, we convinced the Florida Legislature of the vital importance of this strategic need. If and when the next hurricane, natural disaster or other type of emergency happens, well need a place to feed people and well be ready. Byrd echoed the celebratory sentiments. It definitely takes a team effort, and it feels great to cross the finish line, he said. Its an honor to help the Council on Aging, and support the good work the staff does for the seniors of Nassau County. NCCOA will move into its new facility at 1901 Island Walkway in late summer, almost a year after Hurricane Irma caused more than $1 million in catastrophic damage, mostly to the roof and building structure. The 25,000-square-foot facility will host double and triple the number of seniors currently served. The nutrition program will be housed in a commercial-grade kitchen, complete with state-of-the-art appliances and a serving line for congregate meals for seniors. In addition, the larger facility will offer seniors a media lounge, an extended selection of enrichment classes that include exercise, karaoke, arts and crafts, and photography and lifelong learning for subjects including technology, travel, and language. Barbara Gingher, NCCOA chair and former assistant administrator of nursing at Baptist Medical Center Nassau, said, The day weve been waiting for has finally arrived. It opens the doors for so many possibilities for the nutrition and health of our seniors. NCCOAs Nutrition Support Program will nearly double the number of meals provided to seniors by 2020, as well as provide volunteer organizations with a nutrition center to prepare meals for the homebound and serve as a learning center by offering healthy cooking classes for seniors on medically restricted diets. This is a dream come true for the seniors of Nassau County, said Janice Ancrum, NCCOA president and CEO. Our vision of a Senior Life Center large enough to help take care of the seniors in our community is becoming a reality. We are thankful for the support of so many people. Sen. Bean, Rep. Byrd, Buddy Jacobs for his strategic guidance throughout this process, the Nassau County community, our board, our supporters, Director of HR Don Harley and our staff all for our seniors. They will have a nutrition program a beautiful kitchen they truly deserve. In keeping with its past support of childrens issues and organizations that assist children, the Northeast Florida Chapter of the Florida RV Trade Association has donated $2,500 to Nassau County student Brianna Batrous to use for financial support in attending college. Batrous, a senior who is legally blind, will graduate with a 4.5 GPA from West Nassau High School and has amassed more than 1,200 community service hours. After hearing about Briannas need for financial assistance to continue her education, local association member Jamie Lawson of Dick Gores RV World of Jacksonville came to the board and brought her compelling story to our attention, said local FRVTA Board President Ken Loyd. We felt her determination to succeed in school at such a high level and overcoming her blindness was a very compelling story and the board wanted to reward her for that. Faced with adversity since she was born blind and prematurely at only 3 pounds, Batrous has volunteered with many local agencies including the Vietnam Veterans and Nassau Council on Aging contributing so much to the community that her work has received notice from Florida Governor Rick Scott and Nassau County School District Superintendent Dr. Kathy Burns.

Despite extensive medical and psychosocial interventions, these children remained intractably incapable of learning a language or acquiring a modicum of social skills. They remained unsocialized. Ongoing research attests to important facts about brain development and learning. Humans and animals require specific experiencebased learning opportunities at certain ages in order to profit from those events. Otherwise, brain cells dedicated for particular functions are withered or pruned and learning in those areas becomes compromised. Essentially, in early stages of development, the use it or lose it adage applies to brains and learning as well as bodies. Similarly, science finds that key areas of mental health and social development are largely dependent upon the quality and quantity of experiences within critical windows of time during early childhood. Historical evidence on families shows that providing positive and loving experiences within intact two-parent arrangements generally produced healthy pro-social children. This became societys justification for its social and economic promotion of stable families and public education, assisting parents in forming civilized and moral behavior in their children. Rapid cultural changes are leading to radical experimentations in the way many children are now being raised. Traditional civil and moral principles formerly instilled by intact families are being replaced by progressive relativistic beliefs about child rearing. Diverse family lifestyles and behaviors that previously might have been considered suspect or potentially harmful are now tolerated, ostensibly at the price of innovative experimentation regarding malefemale relationships and important traditional parental roles. As a consequence, although not necessarily intended or condoned, many children born out of wedlock or to dysfunctional, unstable families are at risk of acquiring antisocial and immoral characteristics. Whether or not stable family lifestyles and educational instruction designed to produce morally responsible, civilized youth will be able to withstand the progressively ubiquitous anti-tradition forces is debatable. What does seem certain is that too many of todays children who suffer antisocial and mental problems have rarely enjoyed stable and positive family lives. Sadly, these budding sociopaths find themselves floating in a sea of civil and moral ambiguity causing them to be confused, angry, and hostile; characteristics then passed on to their offspring. Absent positive early-life experiences, they tend to be resistant and often immune to exhaustive interventions by schools and counseling. While spiritually based programs, grandparents, and surrogate fathers help to ameliorate the feral-like damage, expecting teachers or well-meaning social programs to cure them is unrealistic.

All that noise and traffic. Finally we can get some peace and quiet on the island. But I was laughing at the irony, because the days of peace and quiet at any time, night or day, on this island are long gone. Its all rush hour, traffic jams, and angry people trying to shove ahead of everyone else nowadays. Remember the science experiments with over crowded rats that led to aggression, violence, and mayhem? Welcome to the new Amelia Island! Colette Bonsall Fernandina BeachrfrfntttFirst off, let us discuss what is wrong with soci ety. They took God out of schools. If your teenage daughter gets pregnant, she can go kill the baby without her parents knowledge. I know times have changed, but I got my first gun at 10, a .410 shotgun. I got my second at 16, a .22 lever-action rifle. My dad made it pretty clear. You are carrying a device that if mishandled can cause death, I was not allowed to take it out of the house by myself. We went hunting whenever we got a chance. When I turned 16, he let me go hunt ing by myself. I do think it has a lot to do with the upbringing, respect for others, and others prop erty. Yes we went to church. During high school there was not a day that my truck did not have a gun in the rifle rack, knives in the tackle box. By God, you sure cant do that these days. The lady questioned about funding, extra tax for guns and ammo. Why should we have to pay extra taxes for a constitutional right? We all pay taxes. Our tax dollars are being used for abortion Im not happy with that but killing a baby is not a constitutional right. So are you going to tell these kids that they will have to fund their own abortion? Most people still dont understand why we have the Second Amendment. Its not about selfdefense; its not about hunting. Our Founding Fathers saw under tyrants that we needed the abil ity to defend ourselves from tyrants that sought to dictate over us, rather than a government by the people. So our Founding Fathers gave us the right to keep and bear arms, this thought came right after freedom of speech, freedom of religion. They had the insight to know without a means to pro tect yourself from tyrants, our country would not last. In other countries where this right was taken away, whole cultures were lost, Germany, China, Russia. Now, I can already hear your response: that cant happen here! But I suggest you check history, because it already has happened here. The Indians, the blacks in the s and s were restricted from buying guns, remember the lynch mobs of the KKK. Police did nothing to stop the Klan, so yes, it can happen here. And again, I can hear you thinking: well, that was a long time ago, surely it cant happen again. Why not? Simply because times have changed? I think times have changed for the worse. My final point. Ms. Ross talks about our chil dren being in possession of automatic weapons. An AR-15 is not an assault weapon. An assault weapon is a fully automatic weapon. You pull the trigger, it fires till you release the trigger. Now again, most people wont know, but full automatic weapons can be purchased, but the background check, the extra money for the tax. You cant buy just any weapon once you find a weapon (which is not easy). Most people that have them will not sell them. You cannot buy a weapon that was made after 1986, so the current stock of these weapons are never increased, the number may fall, but it will never rise. Again, since the ban on automatic weapons there has not been an incident of a legal automatic weapon being used in a crime. But please lets get things straight, the NRA is not a terrorist organization, its a organization that defends our right to keep and bear arms. You have the ACLU that should protect all our Bill of Rights, but because there are so many that would strip us of our rights to keep and bear arms, the ACLU will side with the left, trying to take weapons. As a law abiding gun owner, I would hope my brothers and sisters of gun owners would keep their weapons locked up. A gun safe should be the first purchase before you buy a gun. But NO, not an extra tax because you want to fund the mental health clinics. Society needs to accept a lot of blame, taking God out of school. Video games are rated, but I bet your kids are shooting zombies while youre read ing this. Its not the guns that are the real threat, its our young adults that respect nothing. J.L. Brown Jr. Fernandina BeachrbbfrI want to commend the fair, balanced and com mon sense Viewpoint by Lucy Nadeau, entitled Human Failure. In the face of all the politically motivated rhetoric, it is refreshing to read such a well thought out explanation of why there has been an increase in gun violence. The law-abiding citizens, whether or not they are members of the NRA, are not committing these crimes. If our political masters feel so strongly that the solution to the problem is to take away our guns, then perhaps they should lead by example and do without their armed bodyguards. Many politicians feel the need to be seen to do something. Generally their solutions tend to be simple, quick and cheap. Ms. Nadeau has very eloquently spelled out a way forward. First and foremost, fix the back ground check system so that it actually does what it is supposed to. Ensure that any legitimate concerns about an individuals mental state, with particular reference to gun ownership, are properly logged in the system. For the uninformed, an AR-15 is not an auto matic machine gun. It fires one round for each squeeze of the trigger, in the same manner as a regular semi-automatic pistol, it just has a longer barrel.

Email: pegdavis@fbnewsleader.com.The recent events in Broward County created concern, chaos, and calls for change throughout our country. School is the one place students should feel safe. The priority of legislators, local leaders, and law enforcement quickly became students and their safety! Safe schools have been a priority for the Nassau County School District since the beginning of the 2017-18 school year. The district has made plans to upgrade locks, add fencing, secure and streamline entrances, add cameras, and much more. In the past two weeks, we have met with Chief Hurley and Sheriff Leeper to review current safety procedures and opportunities for improvements. The passage of Senate Bill 7026 includes a list of requirements for local school districts. These include: District School Safety Specialist; Active shooter training; By August 1, 2018, each school district must complete a security risk assessment for each public school campus; By September 1, 2018, each school should establish a threat assessment team with expertise in mental health counseling, academic instruction, law enforcement and school administration that will coordinate resources, assessments, and interventions; and One school safety officer at each school at the beginning of the 2018-19 school year. While we are grateful that our legislators provided additional funding in the areas of mental health and safe schools, these funds will not be sufficient. The cost of resource officers alone is estimated at over $1 million. However, we will review our budget and make the necessary changes for prioritizing safety. Fortifying our schools is important; however, the most important key to safer schools that we cannot ignore is relationships and mental health. Every student must have a meaningful relationship with a caring adult. In Nassau County were blessed to live in communities that care. We have teachers, staff members, and volunteers who invest their time and resources to make our students and learning communities better. As educators, we spend much of our time reviewing data and making plans for improving instruction for every student. Just as we target instruction, we must ALL be deliberate and targeted in our approach to meeting the mental health needs of students. The Nassau County School District has made safety a priority. The district has already begun the work to make our schools safer, comply with the requirements of Senate Bill 7026, and address the mental health needs of students. Our priority safe schools.There has been much talk lately about rights, specifically our rights to do this or that, to have this or that, to be this or that. Most of us believe our rights to be inalienable and self-evident, but its amazing how many of them dwell in the grey areas of our lives. Taken for granted and often misunderstood, the issue of property rights comes to mind. The legal concept of property rights migrated to this country through English common law. Constitutionally, they are part of the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments the federal government cannot take away our right to life, liberty or property without due process of law, fair procedures like a trial, a hearing, etc. (Amendment 5). Amendment 14 says the same thing, but applies to state governments. What are property rights though, really? Does our local noise ordinance violate a bar, tavern or restaurants property rights? Do businesses have the right to entertain people with amplified music, or does the amplified music violate a nearby residents right of quiet enjoyment of property? As the co-author and sponsor of our tree ordinance (Susan Laird was the primary author, while I was proud to occupy the second seat), I heard over and over again how it violated the homeowners property rights: Its my tree and nobodys going to tell me I cant cut it down. The greater good argument was lost on a great many people whose homes were surrounded by oak trees. Nuisances, they said, that seemed to be in the perpetual state of shedding, first one thing then another. Property rights purists say that zoning laws are a violation of property rights: You cant operate a bed-andbreakfast in a residential, R-1 zone; you can only build a single-family home, or duplex in R-2; you can only build a condominium in R-3 multi-family zoning; and you cant combine lots for development purposes at the beach unless you get a variance from the City Commission, of course. Cant, cant, cant all these government bureaucrats telling us what we cant do. Well, suppose Im upset about all the hormones being fed our cattle, pigs and chickens, and I want to raise my own livestock keep a cow, some chickens and a couple of pigs in the backyard, property rights, you know. What about the property rights of my neighbors? Hmmmm, theres the rub. All this brings me to a bill recently signed by Governor Scott. That piece of odious legislation allows beachfront property owners to regulate public access within a kind of no persons land, the land between the owners property and the mean high water mark. So many questions. So much vagueness. So much baloney. First, I defy anyone to walk out on the beach and tell me where the mean high water mark is. Without that clear delineation that agreed upon line in the sand (pun intended) the property owner could regulate (read: prohibit) activity within lands they have no business regulating. Second, much of this land in the city and elsewhere on the island has been created by beach renourishment public tax dollars creating public beaches. Do property owners have the authority to keep people out of, and off of, beach property government created and paid for? The city has a Memorandum of Understanding with the U.S. Navy guaranteeing that sand will be pumped on city beaches when the St. Marys channel is dredged to a depth able to accommodate submarines public tax dollars creating public beaches for, you know, the public. The city, state, county and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have a contract guaranteeing the monitoring and maintenance of our beaches for 50 years. Again, public tax dollars creating public beaches for use by the public. Maybe the legislation the governor signed has a remedy for all this. Maybe some communities with existing memorandums and contracts are grandfathered in. I dont know, but I hope our local representatives made sure it did. Beachfront homeowners, Im sure, say they have property rights that protect their authority within those newly created lands, and beachgoers and users say they have property rights that are equally important. The courts will decide which rights are superordinate and which are subordinate. I wonder which side James Madison would come down on? If the arbiter was Jefferson, I think I know, or Hamilton even, sadly but Madison?

r fntFlorida Department of Health Nassau County partnered with the Nassau County School District and others to receive grant funding from the Northeast Florida Healthcare Coalition to purchase Stop the Bleed kits in 2017. The hemorrhage control tools in the kits are easy and effective methods of treating severe bleeding and preventing complications and death due to bleeding related to traumatic events. By implementing Stop the Bleed, additional resources and training to the public became another effort to strengthen community capacity. FDOH Nassau has placed a Stop the Bleed kit in every school in Nassau County and trained a minimum of two people at each school on how to use the kit. Nassau County School District has the only schools in the state of Florida to have a bleeding control program, kits in every school, and personnel trained to provide this life-saving immediate aid. As this program was grant-funded, there was no cost to the citizens of Nassau County, other than staff training time. According to Dr. Eugenia Ngo-Seidel, Health Department director, Our local public health system has worked together to strengthen our skills and tools to be better prepared for emergency situations. We continue to encourage citizens to learn more about what they can do in medical emergencies until professional help arrives. As early as 2016, FDOH Nassau recognized that lifethreatening bleeding can occur from emergency situations in our communities every day. From vehicle crashes and incidents involving farming equipment or public transportation to accidental injuries from natural disasters like tornadoes or inflicted injuries from intentional acts of violence like shootings and bombings, uncontrolled arterial bleeding can result in death within three minutes even before emergency medical services or other emergency responders can arrive. These first minutes following a traumatic injury are crucial in saving a life. FDOH Nassau realized that help offered by bystanders can often make the difference between life and death. Previously the agency promoted public awareness of hands-only CPR and automatic external defibrillators (AED) use. According to the National Trauma Institute, a traumatic injury with a major loss of blood is responsible for over 35 percent of pre-hospital deaths and is also responsible for over 40 percent of deaths that occur with the first 24 hours of hospital admission. In response to these devastating statistics, the American College of Surgeons created the National Stop the Bleed awareness campaign that was launched by the White House in October of 2015. This program focuses on promoting community resiliency through first responder and citizen training on hemorrhage control. Additionally, placement of kits for hemorrhage control is a key pre-hospital strategy to reduce mortality. The goal is to make Stop the Bleed training as widespread as basic life support like cardiopulmonary tesuscitation (CPR) and to preposition hemorrhage control kits alongside automatic external defibrillators to facilitate use and early response. This strategy is especially important in a large semirural community with a limited number of EMS and law enforcement first responder units. By further increasing hemorrhage control capacity of law enforcement, school health personnel and selected citizens, there is great potential to save lives.

They know their boyfriend or girlfriend, spouse, or parent of their child is hurting them emotionally, physically, or financially. So, why wont they just leave? Its all easier said than done. Each relationship is different and there will never be one unified reason as to why someone may not leave their unhealthy relationship. But, there are some commonalities. It is dangerous. A survivor may have heard from their partner many times what will happen if they leave. They may have never had to even say it they just know from experience that it will be bad if they try to go. One of the most high-risk times for a survivor is when they leave a relationship, since the abuser may feel as though they have nothing left. The person they were controlling is no longer within reach and all caution may go, leading to an even more violent situation. When a child is involved, the dynamics of a relationship completely change. When an abuser takes control over their partners life, which can include financial dependence, they will be isolated and left on their own.

theyre worried that they cant make ends meet without their abusers income or they dont feel comfortable breaking up the family dynamic and leaving the child without a parent in their life. Or, its because the legal system can often make it very difficult for a parent to feel confident that if they ask for custody of their child, the violent parent will not receive any time with the child. According to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, a woman will leave 7 to 9 times before finally cutting ties for good. There are many more reasons as to why this may hap pen.

Bucko and I have owned our home for nearly 20 years now. Soon after we moved in, we started to get some landscaping going on the bare, backyard lot. I perused gardening books, visited nurseries, bought and planted lots of shrubs and flowers, and had great dreams of the wonderful landscape it would become. Well, many of those plants died somewhere along the way bad construction-grade soil most likely, but perhaps some other, more human-caused factors. Right plant, wrong location? Maybe that too, but I really did do my research ahead of time. But whatever the cause, the diversity of plants we put in are not there, and my dreams of a perfectly landscaped garden shrunk to those plants that managed to survive. Some of these are now magnificent, if I do say so myself. And most magnificent of all, in my opinion, is the wisteria! Ive always loved these vines climbing up walls and along fences that are indicative of the Old South. Asian wisteria is known to be invasive and to get large enough to crumble walls, and Bucko was not at all happy about this plant fixation I had. Eventually he gave in, though. He and our friend Rhonda built a deck with a heavy-duty pergola on top for me, just for my sought-after wisteria. I purchased two plants from a nursery, put one on each of two supporting posts, and dreamt of purple fragrant flowers. But in all the years since, this has never happened for me. First off, the first two plants died. One got eaten away by ants, or so we think, and the other just failed to thrive and eventually died too, no matter what I did to try to save it. You cant kill wisteria they say. Well, I can. Somewhere along the line, I got a third plant that I dug up from a friends house in Gainesville. This was a feeble plant, and I probably damaged its roots in the digging, but I put it on a third post between the other two dying wisteria plants and hoped for the best. Well for me, the best didnt happen until this year. Although the plant from Gainesville eventually thrived and grew up to the top of the trellis, I always seemed to be away somewhere in the early spring when it bloomed. For Bucko and I, this plant seemed like more of a nuisance than an asset, as it vined up into the neighboring crepe myrtle and cypress trees and hung down almost to the ground on some sides of the deck. But this year, at the right time, Im home. I am finally seeing the wisteria blooming just like I visualized it many years ago. For a few weeks now this deck with wisteria on top has been a prime place for Bucko and I to relax. The scent of wisteria wafts in the air, the purple petals rain on us, and the bees that it attracts entertain us with their movements. On one beautiful afternoon, Bucko and I sat on the deck and watched the bees. Soon we noticed the green anoles in mating chases (and sometimes, captures) on the shrubs in front of us. Looking a bit closer to the pond, I noticed that my wild zephyr lilies (aka local Easter lilies) were blooming. This was another scavenged plant that I got by digging them up along north Florida roadsides years ago, and now they have multiplied and are thriving. We watched the cardinal pair at the bird feeder, the pair of ducks and the pair of geese in the pond, and laughed when the male goose chased the resident anhinga into the woods. Further into the woods, I could see a few of the azalea bushes in bloom. Like most everything else I planted, many of them died, but the four that survived are now large and, yes, magnificent. To cap off the afternoon, I cut some sprigs of wisteria blooms and then put on boots to walk through the deep duff of the pinewoods to cut some sprigs of azalea blossoms too. I arranged them in a perfect pink vase and put them on a side table where I could continue to admire them through the evening. Well, I now know that wisteria and azaleas do not stay fresh long as cut stems, but no problem there. For the next couple of weeks I have an ever-ready source of more to replace them. My wisteria is blooming and alls well with the world! Pat Foster-Turley is a zoologist on Amelia Island. She welcomes your nature questions and observations. rrf *W.A.C. All rebates apply to price.

The week ended on a 8-1 loss to Baker County on Thursday. LaFavor hit in Erb for the Lady Hornets lone run. Yulee lost captain and four-year starter McKenzie Flowers to injury in the game.

rf Jim Cartwright, a seasoned Northeast Florida black drum angler, has accounted for many Fernandina Beach drum weighing over the 70-pound mark. And, whenever there is a full moon and a rising tide, you can bet your last big drum bait Cartwright will be fishing just off the beaches of Amelia Island. Black drum just seem to bite a lot better during the full moon and a rising tide, he said. I even prefer drum fishing after dark, when the moon is full and there is an incoming tide. More importantly, night fishing doesnt disrupt my daytime work schedule. I honestly believe the big fish I was currently fighting was a shark. We hook a lot of sharks at night, particularly when fishing in close to the beaches. My fish was really acting like a large shark, with its long runs and the way it stayed away from the boat. But this time I wouldnt need my filet knife to cut a shark free when a huge black drum came slowly into our boats lights. On two occasions, the big drum had almost emptied the 50-pound fishing line from my 320 GTI Penn fishing reel. I was overjoyed to see a monster of a black drum at boatside. As the huge drum came slowly up to the side of the boat, Mike Colon gaffed the fish in the bottom of the head and began to lift the big drum into the 21-foot fishing boat with Cartwrights help. Cartwrights black drum was weighed on Atlantic Bait and Tackles certified fish scales, and the weight showed 96 pounds even, a current Florida IGFA record. Large black drum are equipped with large grinders in the back of their large mouths that crush any type of shellfish into small pieces, hard shell clams included. It seems large black drum are in no hurry in swallowing their shellfish, often frustrating drum fishermen in a long period of waiting before setting their hook. Curtis Clark is currently holding down first-place honors in Don Whitmans annual Amelia Island Black Drum Tournament with a massive 72.46-pound black drum. Don Jones, a past winner, is in second place with a 70.14-pound black drum. Fishermen will be able to weigh in their black drum catches through April 22. The awards ceremony will take place at Leaders & Sinkers on May 12, beginning at 7 p.m. Barracuda head the list for most awesome catches with rows of long, pointed teeth in the front of their mouth that grip their prey and then cut them up into small pieces with rows of smaller sharp teeth in the back of their mouth. Deep sea fishermen need to be aware of the dangers of getting too close a sharp-toothed barracuda brought aboard their fishing boat. A good pair of fishing gloves is a must. Largemouth bass are definitely the mouth of the South with their large bucket-like mouths. Largemouth bass are capable of blowing up on a variety of fish and wildlife on the surface, making a loud popping noise as their prey is sucked back into their large head. A favorite freshwater fishermans dream is to have a 10-pound plus largemouth bass blow up on his surface lure. Big mouth bass often prey on small turtles, ducks, snakes and even large fish when they make the mistake of swimming overhead of a large bass. Leading the tail category is the popular redfish, which often fool their predators with eye-like spots on their tail. Sharks and other large predator saltwater fish often feed on large schools of redfish, which are abundant throughout southern waters. When spotting a redfish, the eye-like spot on the redfishs tail often is deceiving, allowing redfish to speed away from harm with their wide tail. Shallow water fishermen often target redfish during a flooding tide when reds will migrate onto flooding spartina marshes while feeding on fiddler crabs. Redfish will feed heads down and tails up as they search the bottom for an easy meal.

With a lovely sunburst detail in its gabled roof, the charming house on the corner of Alachua and North Fourth streets is one of many Victorian-era homes on the street that have remained unchanged. Built in 1902, the two-and-half story frame Queen Anne-style home has distinctive ornamental shingles, two-story hexago nal bays and a classic porch. The original owner, AfricanAmerican druggist and physician Dr. Percy N. Richardson, operated a drug store at 18 N. Fourth St. Richardson and his wife purchased the lot in 1900 and later built their home. They lived on the island many years before building their home. Ads for Dr. Richardsons nerve medicine can be found in an 1880 copy of the Florida Mirror (now the News-Leader). Through the years, the home has had many owners including Everett Johns, a former sheriff of Bradford County. He took a job in Fernandina, joining his good friend, the then-Sheriff Higginbotham. The Johns bought the property in 1905. When they moved into their new home on Alachua, their son Charley was 9 months old. Tradgedy struck when Johns was sent to the beach to check out reports of stolen fishing nets. When he did not return, search parties were dispatched. They found his drowned body. It was rumored that he was murdered because he was scheduled to be a key witness in a federal trial the next day. His widow sold the house to Noble A. Hardee and moved to Starke with her young son. Little Charlie was heard from again in 1935, when he went to Tallahassee as a member of the Florida House of Representatives. Later, he was elected to the state Senate. Johns was president of the Senate when the then-Governor Daniel McCarthy died in 1953 and ended up completing McCarthys term serving as governor from 19531955. The Noble Hardee family were prominent on the island. Nobles brothers Ira and John founded Standard Marine Supply in 1900. The shrimping industry was at its height, and Standard Marine was key to its success. It was the hardware store for the fleet of shrimping boats. Noble Hardee owned the Firestone Tire Store and was a distributor for Standard Oil. Noble and his wife, Emma Love, had three sons born in Tennessee and two daughters born on the island. One son, Will Love, operated three shrimp boats on the island and later moved to Brownsville, Texas to form the Seagarden Sales Company. Will donated the land for the Emma Love Hardee Elementary School and also sold the land that is now Island Walk Shopping Center. The house remained in the Hardee family until recently. Suzanne Hardee had a deep interest in Fernandinas history and served as president of the Amelia IslandFernandina Restoration Foundation. She was active in the founding of the Amelia Island Museum of History and volunteered as archivist. She authored The Golden Age of Amelia Island: A Glimpse and The Golden Age of Fernandina: The Churches. The house is one of the stately houses built on Fourth Street in the late 1800s and early 1900s that are part of the Silk Stocking District. Each house belonged to families who were part of the islands history.

A Nw rL fntbL CtwfS PPt P rr fnRotary means service. Rotary means fellowship and networking. Rotary means business. And Rotary International is the largest service organization in the world. All do important work and have missions that have major impacts across the country and around the world. Amelia Island has two Rotary Clubs the first is the Rotary Club of Fernandina Beach, created 85 years ago. It meets at noon on Wednesdays at The Florida House Inn. The second, the Rotary Club of Amelia Island Sunrise meets on Friday mornings at 7:30 a.m. in the clubhouse of the Fernandina Beach Golf Club. Amelia Island Sunrise started with just 25 members back in 2007 but has grown to more than 60 today. Each club has their signature events. The Fernandina Beach Club has the Harlem Ambassadors Event which helps to raise money for its scholarship program, a dictionary distribution project that puts dictionaries into the hands of third graders across the county, and this year that club, under the leadership of president Ron Heymann, started the first-ever Interact Club at Yulee High School. Also this year, the Rotary Club of Amelia Island Sunrise experienced its own first with an inaugural cultural exchange. This was the first time anything remotely like a foreign exchange of club members has ever been attempted by the club. How did it happen? Turns out, the president of a Rotary Club in Nyons, France, Carol Stephens and her husband Richard, are often visiting Rotarians at the Rotary Club of Amelia Island Sunrise as they spend half of their time here in historic Fernandina Beach. While chatting very informally with Mickey Ulmer, president-elect of the Sunrise Club, the two determined that a cultural exchange was in order and the exchange would be built around each clubs major fundraiser. Annually, Carols club has a fundraiser built around the harvesting of truffles. A truffle is a rare, edible mushroom that is considered to be a delicacy due to its intense aroma and characteristic flavor, according to wisegeek.com and many food aficionados. Truffles are known to be the most expensive delicacy in the world. In 2014, they sold for more that $3,200 a pound, according to CBS News. An Amelia Island equivalent to a truffle tasting would be the Annual Wine and Food Tasting Event sponsored by the Rotary Club of Amelia Island Sunrise. This event, held the first weekend in March, showcases the culinary talents of the chefs of Northeast Florida. This tradition started six years ago and to date has raised over $258,000 for area nonprofits. Originally, the venue was DICKIE ANDERSON/SPECIALThe Noble Hardee House at the corner of Alachua and North Fifth streets was built in 1902. rfntbbbb PHOTOS BY CAROLINE BLOCHLINGER/SPECIALRotarians Christal Fish with Bruce and Barb Heggenstaller enjoy the 6th Annual Food and Wine Tasting Event, above. Steve and Jennifer Gibb, both Rotarians purchase raffle tickets the proceeds of which will be split between the Friends of Aviation (for scholar ships), the Council on Aging and the Boys and Girls Club of Nassau County Foundation, below. the Amelia Island Museum of History. However, it didnt take long for this fundraiser to outgrow the intimacy of the museum. The event now has a following all its own. This year, as was the case in 2017, the event was held at the Atlantic Recreation Center. Over 250 tickets were sold. Participants would never guess they were in an auditorium thanks in large part to the imagination of the club and the hard work and dedication of Brian Henning, a two-year Rotarian and financial adviser with Edward Jones. With the help of many a would-be carpenter, engineer and architect found among the ranks of the Sunrise Rotary Club, the space at the Atlantic Rec Center was turned into an European market. Over the years, the process of selecting the benefactors of event proceeds has become more formal and more competitive. Now there is an official application and presentation process. The 6th annual Wine and Food Tasting event, held on March 3, raised over $50,000 that will be distributed among the three selected nonprofit beneficiaries: The Friends of Aviation (for scholarships), the Nassau County Council on Aging, and the Boys and Girls Club of Nassau County Foundation. In addition to partnering with Rotary to help sell tickets and to man the event, the selected nonprofits were introduced to Rotarians who fast became active partners in the organizations events and activities. Such a concept effectively strengthens and increases the outreach, engagement and understanding of the challenges faced by Nassau County nonprofits. This year, there was something new the international component. Nine individuals from the Rotary Club of ValrasNyons, France came to town. They took up residence with a number of local Rotarians, volunteered with set-up and tear-down of the Wine and Food Tasting event, and enjoyed participating in a quintessential Fernandina fundraising event. While here, the French CINDY JACKSON/NEWS-LEADERRotarians of the Amelia Island Sunrise Club Pete Williams and Mickey Ulmer oversee the low country boil for visiting Rotarians from France. contingent enjoyed an Amelia Island River Cruise, a re-enactment at Fort Clinch, a round of ptanque at the Fernandina Harbor Marina, and a trolley tour. The week was topped-off with a lowcountry boil hosted at the Stephens beachfront home. This last supper idea was cooked up by Mickey Ulmer, next years president of the Rotary Club of Amelia Island. Ulmer said at the end of the week, We were able to show off some of the best parts of life in North Florida, and in true Rotarian fashion our French guests eagerly pitched in to help with our big fundraising event. The club members directly involved and their French counterparts shared five days of fun and built friendships that will only be strengthened as Amelia Island Rotarians visit France next month. Chief organizer of the exchange and president of the Valras-Nyons Rotary Club, Carol Stephens, had this to say, Making cultural exchanges as we did with the Valras-Nyons, France and Amelia Island Sunrise Rotary Clubs surpassed any expectations I had. We explored and learned about the Amelia Island area but for me, the tight friendships that grew (between the two clubs) was more than one could have foreseen. The smiles, the laughter included working, playing and enjoying life together. That is what defined the camaraderie of this Rotary exchange adventure. Up next, 15 members of the Rotary Club of Amelia Island Sunrise depart America in late April to join the Rotary Club of Valras-Nyons to see how the French fare at fundraising. Included as part of that end of the exchange will be trufflefinding tours, jazz concerts, and museum excursions. An unforgettable memory of the heartfelt welcome bestowed by the Fernandina Rotarians, said Claire Weiss, one of the visitors from France. Added Sarah Hughes, We had a fantastic trip! We, and all our club, look forward to welcoming everyone on the return trip in Provence at the end of April. Merci to all.trbrf CINDY JACKSON/NEWS-LEADER CAROLINE BLOCHLINGER/SPECIAL Left, Carol and Richard Stephens split their time between Nyons, France and Fernandina Beach.

The Trinity Knot: Releasing the Knot of Silence is the first book in a new fiction trilogy by local author DonnaLee Overly that deals with this timely topic, according to a news release. The twist is that in this saga there is no celebrity or political figure involved. Since the issue is universal, the author captivates the reader with a compelling story that involves the lives and dreams of average peo ple who could live in any town in America, the release states. In the series, Gabriella King is a talented artist who cannot find her voice during and after being sexually assaulted by the club tennis pro. Living with torment and selfblame, she uses her brush and canvas to paint her anguish and confu sion. She finds strength as she begins to gain a deeper understanding of what motivates people to take certain actions and eventually finds her voice, the release goes on to explain. In The Trinity Knot series, Overly gives an emotional voice to issues such as sexual assault, infidelity, abortion, adoption, grief and depression and weaves them into tales of soul-searching, heartbreak, courage and love. Overly graduated from St. Petersburg College in Florida in 1983 with an Associate of Science in Nursing and worked as a critical care nurse for 20 years before pursuing a degree in studio art from University of Texas in Austin in 2005. After observing the positive response to her exhibitions that expressed her per sonal struggles through art and words, Overly created The Trinity Knot series to further her passion of providing people stories that are engaging and immer sive. Contemporary fiction novels, her new series is a trilogy written to give a voice to womens issues that are often hushed, the release says. When I write from the heart, causing tears to flow, those scenes become the most powerful. In an often superficial world, I believe, readers crave raw emotion and honesty, Overly said in the release. When Overly is not painting or playing ten nis, shes busy writing. Her second novel in The Trinity Knot series The Zeppelin Bend is sched uled to be released later this fall. Overly splits her time between Fernandina Beach and Austin, Texas. She is a member of the Florida Writers Association. You can learn more about Overly by visiting her website at donnaleeoverly.com or following her on Facebook at DonnaLee Overly Author. The Trinity Knot will be released in trade paperback Friday and a launch celebration is planned to begin at 4 p.m. that day at The Book Loft, located at 214 Centre St. in Fernandina Beach. Published by Giro di Mondo, the book will be available at local independent bookstores and online at Barnes & Noble, Indie Bound and Amazon. If youre looking to practice your drawing or painting skills of flowers, Lisa Inglis will be holding a class every Tuesday from 1 to 3 p.m. in April at Shady Ladies Art Studio, located at 432B S. Eighth St. in Fernandina Beach. Inglis will provide guidance but not formal instruction to participants, who will be free to practice each week with a different floral arrangement or botanical still-life. Paper and basic drawing supplies will be available for use during class as well as some basic craft acrylic paints and brushes. Participants should supply any other needed supplies. The cost is $40 per session. The Friends of Fort Clinch State Park Citizen Support Organization was awarded two state awards in March by Florida State Parks Director Eric Draper at a meeting and awards program held at Crystal River Preserve State Park, according to a news release.

The Amelia Island Museum of History will hold a Brown Bag Lunch at noon today with guest speaker D.J. Williams, who will present Surviving at the South Pole for Science. In her previous role as an academic physicist, Williams lived and supported research at Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station for 12 months beginning in October 2001. Her experience there as an amateur anesthesiolo gist led to her current career as an emergency physician.
