June 23, 1993 Jonathan Petree is a product of Nassau County schools, having grown up on a farm in Callahan. He said he is running again for a seat on the Nassau County School Board to help create an awesome community to pass on to his children. Petree won in a special election two years ago after Dr. Kathy Burns resigned to run for schools superintendent. He lives with his wife and four children on family land in Callahan. Im not on the School Board because Im retired and need something to do, Petree told the News-Leader. I run a business in two locations. I have a family of six, an elderly mother I take care of I have no shortage of things to do but this is a passion. Its serving my community. I dont have a million dollars to pass down to my kids. I want to pass down a legacy thats an awesome Nassau County. I want to make sure everyones children have this jewel. Petrees business is Atlantic Warriors, which teaches personal security to companies and organizations and mentors troubled youth. He said that experience works hand-in-glove with the need for security in Nassau County schools. School safety is number one. If you cant be safe, you cant teach math, you cant do anything else, he said. This is my wheelhouse. My profession is public safety and personal safety. We go in corporations and train their staff on how to protect themselves. Little did I know in 2016, when I was running for election, that now its one of the most important skill sets and knowledge bases that I have to bring to the School Board. Added security for schools costs money, and Petree said he took a trip to Washington, D.C. to discuss the need for more funding with Congressman John Rutherford, R-Fla., last November. I took myself and my kids up to see Congressman John Rutherford for the sole purpose of saying we do not have enough funding to provide a school resource officer at every one of the Nassau County district schools, Petree said. All we have is ad valorem taxes, which go into the general fund. Then, out of that, we reimburse, at 75 percent, the county. I went to the county-level officials, the state-level officials (who said) theres no way to do it. So, I said Im going to go all the way to the top. I made an appointment, sat down in (Rutherfords) office, and we discussed this. Him being a former sheriff of Jacksonville, he understood, he got it. So, immediately, one of his staff looked for federal grants that were available. Seeing none, they decided to create their own bill. Petree said the resulting Stop School Violence Act of 2018 would provide matching funds at the 75 percent level. Every dollar we get from the state of Florida, then we get 75 cents, Petree said, describing the bill. One person can make a difference. Now we have two sources of funding where before we had zero. The cool thing is that funding starts in 2019 and is slated to go all the way out to 2028, so every single year we can get that. As long as the state keeps giving us money, then the (federal government) will match that. Another aspect of school safety is the traffic around Nassau County schools. Petree said it was brought to his attention that there was a need for traffic signals at Callahan Intermediate School, an issue he brought to the table at a joint meeting of the NCSB and the Board of County Commissioners. I was spearheading the efforts, put it on everyones radar screen, that there were no flashing caution lights at the CES school zone, and that it was a public safety hazard, Petree said. Im very happy that the BOCC they listened they voted and approved funding for the caution lights. I was really happy that they were so responsive and listened to me on that. I followed up throughout the months. I talked to road and bridges and engineering and they were done within eight months. Petree grew up with family in the educational system. He said that experience gives him a perspective on how hard teachers work and the need of the School Board to protect their interests. How do I put that to work for the School Board? After getting sworn in, the very first act we had was a legislative priorities meeting, as we do each year. The first one we had, I spearheaded the idea that the School Board should show our teachers that we are on their side, that we have their backs, by protecting their participation in the Florida Retirement System instead of just being shoved into a 401(k) situation. The reason thats important is that some other states have been proposing and making their employees go away from a retirement system into only a 401(k) rfntfbbr PetreePETREE Continued on 5AtTo sustain the natural environment that Amelia Islands residents enjoy as well the tourist-centric economy that employs many here, the Amelia Tree Conservancy is working on four issues that are coming to a head. We are making good progress to conserve land on Amelia Island to avoid total loss of the canopy that provides so many benefits for us and to retain an environment that will support a high quality of life, explained Margaret Kirkland, the ATCs chairwoman. A land conservation program is being established by Fernandina Beach, with the City Commission in the process of approving an ordinance that will set up a funding mechanism for the acquisition of sensitive land. Approved on first reading, the ordinance was scheduled for a second reading on June 19. As moneys are identified, they will be earmarked for the Land Conservation Fund. A city fund alone will not suffice to acquire the land needed to maintain canopy. On other barrier islands that have been successful in this effort, like Nantucket, Marthas Vineyard, and St. Simons Island, multiple entities local municipal governments, small nonprofits and land trusts have all worked together to organize and fund this effort, according to Kirkland. tfbbfbrfbt t A representative of the Amelia Tree Conservancy group speaks with young attendees at the recent Wild Amelia Nature Festival.R.M. WEINTRAUB/ SPECIAL bff fftf bf bfAccording to a news release from Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper, early Friday morning there were several auto burglaries reported in the Hickory Village and North Hampton subdivisions in the Yulee area. A total of 15 unlocked vehicles had been rummaged through and a few items stolen. One of the victims returned home around 2 a.m. and observed the inside light of her car on and also saw a person running through her yard, according to the release. A Nassau County Sheriffs Office deputy responded and observed a suspicious silver Honda vehicle leaving the North Hampton area around 2:30 a.m. The vehicle was stopped, and as the deputy approached the vehicle, he reported he could smell an odor of burnt marijuana coming from inside the BURGLARIES Continued on 6A TREES Continued on 3A Tests by the St. Marys Riverkeeper at three different places along Egans Creek have again shown elevated levels of E. coli. Although no source of the contamination has been identified, the Nassau County Department of Health is asking the public to help them identify any sewage issues that may have allowed the bacteria into local waterways. The readings for the June testing of local waters taken by volunteers working for St. Marys Riverkeeper Rick Frey show levels for most testing areas listed as good, but seven out of 34 of the sites were determined to be of fair or poor quality. Egans Creek had elevated levels of E. coli last year, but those levels came back down into the good range later in the year. The maximum acceptable level for E. coli, short for Escherichia coli bacteria, is 235 colony-forming units (cfu) per 100 milliliters of fluid, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The levels of E. coli reportedly found in the June tests was 400 cfu in Egans Creek at Atlantic Avenue; 1,933 cfu near the mouth of Egans Creek at the Amelia River; and 2,567 cfu in Egans Creek just north of Sadler Road, in the Greenway.

She was born September 24, 1938 to Alice and Joe Kimble. She grew up in Mt. Holly, N.J. with her parents and brother, Jerry, who is five years her junior. She was a cheerleader throughout high school. Her family went every Sunday to Sacred Heart Catholic Church, where her father was an usher and where Joy was honored in the Court of the May Queen, being crowned May Queen as a junior in high school. Joy went on to graduate from Cabrini College in Radner, Pa. She took a job with the Girl Scouts of America, where she was responsible for hir ing and training volunteers. She had been a Girl Scout in her youth. During her employment with the Girl Scouts, Joy met Bernard Bernie McCabe at the Bayview on Long Beach Island. There, they enjoyed a tradition of watching the sun go down, even standing on chairs to catch the last rays as the sun set beyond the horizon. After several years of dating, Joy and Bernie were married April 15, 1968, at Our Lady of Good Counsel in Moorestown, N.J. In 1972, they bought their first house in Riverton, N.J., having saved enough to pay half the total cost. In the early 1970s, Joy began a career at RCA in Camden, N.J., working in human resources at the Aerospace Center. While the names and corporate logos on her business cards changed throughout the years with mergers and buy outs, Joy continued in human resources for General Electric, Lockheed Martin and Martin Marietta. Joys loyalty to her work persisted not only through the changes of company names but also through the changes in location. When Joy was transferred to Bethesda, Md. in the early 1990s, she went. Joy insisted she be allowed to travel from New Jersey because she was caring for her aging mother. She would board the train on Mondays and return on Fridays. Joy often gravitated to the beach over her lifetime. Beginning in the 1960s, she would spend any available time at Long Beach Island, a tradi tion she and Bernie continued over the course of their marriage. They even bought a house on Long Beach Island in 1980. When Joy retired in 1997, she and Bernie built a house and moved permanently to Amelia Island, Fla. For over 20 years they enjoyed living on Amelia Island and became part of that com munity. Joy used her wealth of corporate experience to help out on several boards. Her work on the Hospital Auxiliary Board, with the Amelia Island Museum of History, and with Micahs Place was something she felt strongly about. She felt deeply the work was important and hoped her efforts honored their individual causes. After battling breast cancer successfully in 1997, Joy was affected again in 2010 but more severely. She kept up a noble and deter mined fight against the cancer for eight long years. Joy is survived by her husband of 50 years, Bernie; her brother, Jerry Kimble and wife Bunny; her niece and nephew, Shell and Jeremy; a sister-in-law, Joan Rossler; and many extended family members and friends. A service celebrating Joys life will be announced at a time in the near future.

ATC has identified a number of sensitive properties, both large and small, that should be conserved to maintain the islands tree canopy, Kirkland said. The areas include parts of the Amelia Island Parkway, the A1A Scenic Highway, Egans Creek south of Sadler Road, the secondary dunes, the wetlands south of Franklin Street, and an airport buffer, she explained. A city arborist an urban forester is to be hired by the city in the near future as a result of the work of the ATC and other local environmentalists, which included the position description and rationale. A professional arborist, one certified by the International Society of Arboriculture, will have the responsibility of reviewing tree removal and building permits, and overseeing proper pruning of city trees to remove broken, dead, weak or diseased limbs to reduce stress on trees. The arborist would also assure the right trees are planted in the proper place. Loss of trees can be expensive in terms of lost property value and higher energy costs; replacing trees can also be quite expensive, Kirkland pointed out. The ATC is also working with the City Commission to establish a tree commission that would provide volunteer support to the city arborist. We have a number of knowledgeable people in the community who can offer their time to the city at no cost, thus increasing the work that the arborist can achieve, Kirkland said. The ATC is working with other environmentalists on a major revision of the city ordinance. Improvements to the county tree protection ordinance are moving toward completion. The countys Planning & Zoning Board formed a working group, including ATC representatives, that created a revision to the current tree protection and replacement ordinance that was approved in mid-May. The Board of County Commissioners took up the ordinance at a hearing on June 11, with a second hearing to be held July 9. We will need community support for this new legislation, Kirkland said. ATC was formed in 2013 as a community response to the destruction of the live oaks at the intersection of South Fletcher Avenue and First Coast Highway/A1A. Lyn Pannone spearheaded the tree protection effort. A primary objective of the organization, which now has more than 300 members, has been to raise community awareness of the importance of the tree canopy and the need to maintain it. We still have remnants of a maritime forest, among the few examples left in the Southeast, Kirkland said, pointing out a number of benefits provided by a maritime forest: Trees mediate climate as they can cool a city up to 10 degrees Fahrenheit by shading homes and streets and releasing water vapor into the air. Trees mitigate storm flood damage by retaining rain in their leaves and root systems. The fewer trees we have, the greater the needed investment in infrastructure. Trees properly placed around buildings can reduce air conditioning needs by 30 percent and save 20 percent in energy used for heating. Trees serve as habitat for animals and plants. Trees absorb CO2 and release oxygen. During a year, a mature tree will absorb more than 48 pounds of carbon from the atmosphere. Trees clean our air by removing pollutants from the air. Forested watersheds also provide quality drinking water. Trees contribute to our economy by maintaining property values and by attracting visitors and new residents. ATC is seeking to raise funds for land acquisition, planting and education.

The case was on the agenda for that boards meeting June 12 but the meeting was cancelled for lack of a quorum. McCranie, vice president and lead design engineer for McCranie & Associates, Inc., of Fernandina Beach, told the NewsLeader, It is one of those situations everyone would rather not be involved with. We designed the hotel around these trees. No one wanted the trees gone. McCranie explained that A.J. Johns Construction of Jacksonville, which is handling site land work, thought all of the trees that were supposed to be preserved had been flagged before they called in their tree removal crew. Everything that was flagged was saved, McCranie said. But not all of the trees that were to have been saved had been flagged before the removal process began. Its just a shame, he added. Director of the Nassau County Department of Planning and Economic Opportunity Taco Pope sent a letter to the hotel development company, Fernandina Investment, LLC, of Columbia, S.C., that violations included unauthorized tree removal, depositing of soils and other materials within the defined tree protection zones and improperly located tree protection barricades. In the letter, Pope identified five trees removed without authorization resulting in a loss of 103.75 inches DBH (Diameter at Breast Height) credited toward the tree protection requirements of the site. The letter indicated several locations where excavation has taken place within the required tree protection zone utilizing a methodology, likely excavated with a backhoe, which ripped the root structures as opposed to utilizing a clean cut methodology. Pope listed for the NewsLeader the following sequence of events related to the project: October 31, 2017, via site plan SP17-013, Nassau County approved a tree protection plan for the Amelia Island hotel site development project in accordance with Article 37, Section 37.02 of the Nassau County Land Development Code. May 29, a citizen complaint was received by the Nassau County Code Enforcement Department alleging a violation of the approved tree protection plan associated with the Amelia Island hotel project. May 30, PEO staff accompanied Code Enforcement Officer Michael Favors to investigate the complaint and perform an inspection of the ongoing site development project in relation to tree protection.PEG DAVIS/NEWS-LEADERAn error in marking, or not marking, the trees to be preserved versus trees to be cut at the site of a new hotel on Sadler Road resulted in five trees removed without authorization resulting in a loss of 103.75 inches DBH (Diameter at Breast Height) credited toward the tree protection requirements of the site, according to the county. The developer has agreed to replace the removed trees with 23 six-inch magnolia or oak trees.rfntrfbrnf MISTAKE Continued on 8A NL 6 col. Wed 06.20.indd 3 6/19/18 4:24 PM

Starting a small business takes time, hard work, and money. Depending on your type of business and your pres ent financial situation, you may find you need to reach to outside sources for funding. One resource you can turn to for assistance in obtaining a loan to start or grow your busi ness is the United States Small Business Administration (SBA). While the SBA does not directly lend money to small businesses, it can facilitate loans with third party lenders. Various banks, credit unions, community devel opment organizations, and micro lending institutions throughout the U.S. partner with the SBA to provide funding to small businesses without access to other financing options with reasonable terms. SBA sets specific guidelines for loans, which are made by its partners, and it guarantees that theyll be repaid by the borrow ers. This benefits small business owners by giving them access to much-needed funding, and it eliminates some of the risk to the lending partners. To qualify for an SBA loan, your business must meet certain criteria regarding business size, financial standing, and others. You must also meet the credit qualifications of the lender. Several advantages of SBA loans over conventional loans include: Lower down payments Longer repayment terms Two SBA loan programs that benefit many small businesses are: 7(a) loan program, www. sba.gov/7a-loan-program: These loans can be used for various pur poses (such as satisfying shortterm or long-term working capital needs; purchasing equipment, machinery, and supplies; buying real estate; refinancing existing debt; and more). Microloan program, www. sba.gov/content/microloan-pro gram: This program provides loans up to $50,000 to help busi nesses with lower-dollar financing needs. According to the SBA, the average microloan is approxi mately $13,000. You may not use microloans to pay existing debt, but you can use them for working capital and purchasing inventory, supplies, furniture, equipment, machinery, etc. There are other SBA loan programs as well. For informa tion about them, visit the SBA websites Loan Programs page at www.sba.gov/loanprograms. You can also find more details about obtaining financing for both start-ups and existing small busi nesses on the SBA websites Borrowing Money For Your Business page, www.sba.gov/ content/borrowing-money. If you want to explore more potential sources of financing for your business, check out the SBAs Loans and Grants web site page at www.sba.gov/loansgrants. Consider reaching out to your local SCORE Chapter to speak with a mentor who can direct you to lending institutions and organi zations in your community. They can also help guide you as you prepare to approach lenders for funding. Since 1964, SCORE Mentors to Americas Small Business has helped more than 10 million aspiring entrepreneurs and small business owners through men toring and business workshops. More than 11,000 volunteer business mentors in over 320 chapters serve their communities through entrepreneur education dedicated to the formation, growth and success of small businesses.

Aaron Bean, R-Fernandina Beach, presents a $2 million check to Nassau County Ocean Highway and Port Authority Chairman Adam Salzburg and OHPA commissioners. During the 2018 Legislative Session, Bean and State Rep. Cord Byrd, R-Neptune Beach, worked diligently together to secure the $2 million in state funding for the Port of Fernandina for a new multipurpose dock crane.So what makes a great team? For me, it is the parties complementing each other so well that one and one makes three. That was always Nick and Iris Nicholson. You could never think of one and not the other. When we first moved to Amelia Island, Nick and Iris represented what made it a great place to live. Judith became close to Iris, who as one of the founders of Micahs Place got Judith deeply involved. I became friendly with Nick, who got you into the right golf group probably so you would contribute to Micahs Place. We all knew and appreciated Nick and Iris as they counseled us on what you should do to be happy on Amelia Island. Nick and Iris did most important things together. They met in 1954 at the University of Georgia in Nicks junior year. After graduation, they married and as Nick says, We went into the military service. Of course, only Nick joined but in his mind they did it all together. Nick first thought they were going to Germany, but they ended up at Fort Gordon in Georgia. After two years, term up, Nick left and thought he was going to join Proctor and Gamble as a sales rep. However, he saw a blind ad to sell life insurance, which interested him. His father told Nick not to bother. Iris disagreed. He replied, got a favorable response, and so they went on the interview. They found out The Equitable was looking for life insurance salespeople in Atlanta. After the interview, Iris advised this was the job for them and Nick never looked back. Nick loved selling, so even when he was promoted, first to manager, then VP of new operations, and then head of a new agency, Nick insisted he would only do it if he could keep selling. By 1993, Nick and Iris with two grown children Butch and Kim and grandchildren, decided it was time to move on. Having visited Amelia Island over the years to see the Georgia-Florida football game, they decided retiring here would be perfect. Iris and Nick became very involved in Amelia Islands nonprofit world. However, Iris (Muff to her family) took the lead. A major issue she heard was that women in Nassau County, who were victims of domestic violence, had no safe place of refuge for themselves or their children. She and some others decided to do something about it. They started Micahs Place in 1999 as the answer for victims of domestic violence. They incorporated it and registered it as 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization. By 2003, Micahs Place began offering outreach services, information and referrals via a 24-hour toll-free hotline. It also opened a 16-bed emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence. Since then, Micahs Place continued to grow and presently has 18 employees and over 300 dedicated volunteers. To many on the island, this is Iris legacy. As her daughter Kim Wilcox says, Muff was the definition of a Southern woman. She had a charming way of getting anybody and everybody to help out. She raised money for a number of good causes in addition to Micahs Place. However, Kim says, what made Muff effective was who she was. She loved to have fun but manners counted and she expected Kim to call her every Sunday. She could say more with the cut of her eyes than others with a long speech. And while always the Southern lady, she had a lot of advice for her kids and others: Smile on the outside and you will feel good on the inside. Even today, when Kim thinks life has become difficult, she remembers Muff saying, Kim, sometimes sweetheart, you just got to pull up your big girl panties and get the job done. They grew old but life was great. Nick, a tough competitor, loved golf. We still laugh about leaving the 18th hole at a number of golf courses and Nick advising our friend Charlie Albright, -4 Charlie, I win. Then, on February 7, 2016, Super Bowl Sunday, Nick was making drinks in the kitchen and he heard a thud. Iris had fallen and hit her head. She never woke up. She was 83. Nick is still carrying on, but he knows without Muff the team will never be the same. Amelia Island resident Howard Pines has more than 30 years experience as CEO, chairman and founder of BeamPines, a premier firm in the executive coaching business. He also co-founded the BeamPines/Middlesex University Masters Program in Executive Coaching. Prior to that, he served as senior VP of human resources for a Fortune 100 corporation. He is the author of The Case for Wasting Time and Other Management Heresies.rfnnt SUBMITTED Nick and Iris Nicholson bnn rfntbb NL 6 col. Wed 06.20.indd 4 6/19/18 4:43 PM

The pension program is much more lucrative to the employee. I wanted to be sure our teachers are taken care of, their retirement is taken care of, but not just the teachers the custodians, the operations and maintenance people, the non-instructional people, all of the employees of the Nassau County School District which is the largest employer in Nassau County. Petree said vocational education is an important, and often overlooked, aspect of education. In my opinion, we need to change the narrative that everyone needs to go to college, he said. In the last 25 years or so, the whole country has promoted college. One of the unintended consequences is that there is now a skilled labor shortage in the U.S. So, what we need to do is to promote vocational education as a first choice, not just an alternative to the college track. In the last year and a half, I have been working to promote throughout the county to get the word out to parents that, hey, if your children arent inclined to go to college, they have wonderful, lucrative opportunities in the skilled trades. People are saying they didnt know there was a machinist program at Hilliard Middle-Senior High School. Some of those high school graduates have jobs waiting for them when they get out as a machinist. Theres an agricultural program at Hilliard, building construction in West Nassau, at the Red Bean Center theres HVAC and electrical program, automotive program in YHS. One of our model programs is the HVAC and automotive program at the Red Bean Center in Yulee. One hundred percent in that program class of 2017 got jobs. That tells you something. Our job is to let folks know that they dont have to go to college and end up with tons of student loan debt thats really hard to repay, and maybe not even be able to get a job. Petree said, in addition to hours dedicated to his company and his family, he works everyday in his position as a School Board member. This isnt just punching the clock to me, he said. School Board isnt just two meetings a month. I do this every day, in some capacity, because its so important. The general election in Nassau County is Nov. 6. The deadline to register to vote is Oct. 9.Continued from 1AEscambia Slough, a marshy tributary of the Amelia River that bisects Escambia Street in north Fernandina Beach, resulted in a level of 2,233 cfu. Frey said he has forwarded the test results to the Department of Health. Michael Godwin, environmental manager with the Department of Health, said that department does not test the waters found to have high E. coli levels. However, the DOH does have jurisdiction over septic systems. Godwin asked that anyone who has reason to believe that there has been a septic or sewer system failure, whether in the Fernandina Beach city limits or in Nassau County, to contact that department at (904) 5579150. Godwin said septic failures can be spotted visually or by an odor. The DOH can then use that information to possibly deduce where E. coli is getting into the water. Frey told the News-Leader that warm water is the environment in which E. coli flourishes. Test results spike in the summer, Frey said. We had similar results last year. We gave those results to the Department of Health, who sent them to the state. Once those results were confirmed, we wanted to post signage, warning people not to be in the water or to let their pets in the water, and that the fish caught may have E. coli, but the Department of Health asked us to wait until they could find the source of the E. coli, but they couldnt confirm where it was coming from, so we couldnt post the signs. Frey said that E. coli itself does not make people sick, but is what is called an indicator species of bacteria. It indicates the presence of bacterial pathogens that can cause illness. As far as the source of the E. coli in Egans Creek, Frey said while that cannot be definitively determined, it could be from poorly maintained septic systems. My feeling is that human waste is getting into Egans in areas further south, he said. Especially in the older sections of Fernandina Beach and in Nassau County, where the sewer system and septic tanks are older. Frey explained that homes and businesses within city limits are required to be connected to the citys sewer system. Those that are not in the city limits, like some of the subdivisions south of Lime Street along Citrona Drive, have older septic tank systems, which, as they age, become more problematic. Fecal chloroform comes from mammals humans, cows, horses and wildlife, Frey said. But, we dont have a lot of horses or cows on the island. Frey said he does not know why there would be an elevated level of contamination at Escambia Slough, which is inside city limits, since homes in the area are required to be connected to the citys sewer system. He said he has contacted the city about the troublesome test results. The sources of pollution come in two categories point source, where a certain pipe or other source can be positively identified, and non-source pollution, where pollution is washing into a body of water by rain and other runoff, so it cannot be pinned to one source. Frey said he believes that is the case on Amelia Island. Frey said he would feel comfortable boating or kayaking in the creek but would advise against swimming or allowing pets in the water. Frey said public sewer systems and well-maintained septic systems are the key to preventing runoff containing E. coli from washing into waterways. He said the Riverkeeper was able to obtain some grants from the EPA for new septic systems in Camden County, Ga., when test results showed elevated E. coli levels there. Continued from 1A rrfA local organization called EmpowHER, a professional womens network, hosted State Attorney Melissa W. Nelson at a recent luncheon at the Fernandina Beach Golf Club. Nelson, the state attorney for Floridas Fourth Judicial Circuit, was the fourth in a series of speakers hosted by the group thus far. The State Attorneys Office is responsible for the prosecution of all crimes committed in Duval, Clay and Nassau counties and is tasked with cases across the full spectrum of criminal activity including murder and violent crimes, sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse, property crimes, drug trafficking, public corruption, racketeering, and impaired driving. Nelson leads a group of more than 100 attorneys and 200 staff members. Nelsons biography on the website of the SAO says she is recognized for her ethics, integrity, professionalism, and collegiality and was recently inducted into the American College of Trial Lawyers. She is a member of the Chester Bedell Inn of Court, the Jacksonville Womens Lawyers Association, and previously served on the Judicial Nominating Commission for the Fourth Judicial Circuit. Nelson took office on Jan. 3, 2017 after a campaign in which she ran against her former boss. Nelson started her presentation discussing how different the counties of Clay, Duval and Nassau are, and mentioned the current open case of Joleen Rebecca Cummings here in Nassau County. The womans disappearance more than a month ago has rocked the community. Nelson contrasted the Cummings case in Nassau County with Duval County having had eight homicides in the week before her talk, pointing out that each county has a different set of criminal issues. She also expressed her gratitude to a few teachers and mentors along the way, including local attorney and judge Doc Burgess. Nelson grew up in Florida. Her father was a career law enforcement official and she earned both her undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Florida. When I was in law school, I got the trial bug, says Nelson. She enjoyed the verbal sparring that being successful in that role requires. But life changed and she decided to go into private practice. A firm in Jacksonville took a chance on her as she describes it, a chance to reinvent herself, and she did.

Knight Minor PearsonHo-Sang Farley News-Leader Guide To Nassau 2017 2Nassau County HISTORYNassau County, established Dec. 29, 1824, is a 649-square-mile area in the most northeast section of Florida, adjacent to the state line. Some say the county is named for the main island of the Bahama chain because of the large number of Bahamians that were among its early settlers, while others say it was named for the Duchy of Nassau in Germany. Nassau was the 10th county formed of 67 in the state of Florida. Gen. James Oglethorpe of Great Britain gave Amelia Island its name in honor of Princess Amelia, the daughter of King George II. Fernandina Beach was named in honor of King Ferdinand VII of Spain. COUNTY LIMITSThe St. Marys River serves as the Florida-Georgia border and forms the western and northern border for the county. Nassau County is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, Duval County, Baker County and Georgia. Nassau County offers a diversity of landscapes from rural, wooded areas to beaches and bodies of water ranging from secluded rivers and bays to the Atlantic Ocean. The county of nearly 80,000 residents borders Georgia to the north and Duval County, Fla., to the south. Fernandina Beach is the most populated area. Old Yulee Rd. Middle White Rd.

Though designed to house 500 soldiers and 78 pieces of artillery, construction of Fort Clinch was never completed. Still, the incomplete fort served as a military outpost during the Civil War, the Spanish-American War and World War II. In 1935, Fort Clinch became one of Floridas first state parks when the state purchased the fort and surrounding property to preserve it and to provide opportunities for outdoor recreational activities. From 1937 to 1942, Company 1420 of the Civilian Conservation Corps repaired the fort and constructed camping areas, roads, bathhouses, picnic areas and a visitor center. Today, the 1,427-acre park offers fishing and swimming and is home to beautiful beaches, scenic hiking, biking trails, 63 campsites equipped with electricity and water along with six primitive campsites. Hurricane Matthew destroyed a half-mile fishing pier on the parks northeast corner. Florida officials have said the state will rebuild the pier by 2027 but have provided no other details. Other popular park activities include bird watching and shell and shark tooth hunting. Fort Clinch is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., year-round. Park admission is $6 per vehicle (limited to 2-8 people per vehicle), $4 per vehicle with a single occupant or $2 for pedestrians and bicyclists. The cost of admission to visit the fort is $2 per person. The park offers guided nature walks at Willow Pond every Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m. Guests can rent out the conference room located in the visitors center at $40 per hour. Guests can also enjoy a meal at the Live Oak Grill, also housed in the visitors center. The fort offers catering for private events in its visitors center.

R r P bD f E Af BO r ffr fC p E Rrrnf D B n Sp E G CD EB R r rf P bD f ntbrf DftN Sm fn Tnm Cm rf ntnntb tntnnnt nt nf I applaud Mr. Ron Sapps zeal in his efforts to make the Amelia Island beaches more accessible to the general public. However, as a learned schoolteacher, he should be more accurate with his facts and arguments. He starts his latest opinion piece to the News-Leader (Dont mess with my beach access) by writing, That court (referring to a recent case in the Florida panhandle), it seemed, believed that the land between the mean high water and a homeowners property belonged to the homeowner, not the people of Florida, and the homeowner could control what happened within their property. He seems to be implying that there is a strip of land between the mean high water line and the waterfront property owner. This misstatement could lead an uninformed reader to believe that waterfront property owners are attempting to take this (fictitious) strip for their own use, excluding the general public. Such is simply not the case. The mean high water line is the dividing line between private and public property. There is no strip of land between the mean high water line and the waterfront property owner. Waterfront property lines that are perpendicular to the waterfront generally extend to the mean high water line. This is true throughout the United States and most of the world, and the precedent for this has its roots far in the past in Roman law under Emperor Justine, A.D. 530. When Florida became a state in 1845, the state took title to all sovereign lands within its jurisdiction, and the wet sand beach falling seaward of the mean high water line came under the Public Trust Doctrine. Floridas constitution asserts that state owner ship of beaches below the mean high water lines, is held in trust for all the people. (Florida Bar Journal, June 2009). The federal rule for determining the mean high water line is determined by the average height of all waters over a period of 18.6 years. With increasing populations and leisure time to enjoy our beaches, a handful of liberal states, notably California, Oregon and New Jersey, have attempted to chip away at the private property that lies along the divide between private and public owners of waterfront property. This has led to very expensive litigation and mixed results. Even these liberal bastions have tempered their efforts to open more water front land areas by imposing some rather onerous conditions. Some have designated set paths which must be used to traverse the private property, others have allowed private owners to charge reasonable fees for use or crossing, others have, under the doctrine of prescriptive easements, required the signing of a sworn affidavit stating that the individual wishing to intrude has adversely and continuously (whatever that means) used the property in question for 20 years, and many other approaches are being used. Taking by Eminent Domain has generally been ruled out due to the high property value of waterfront property. The Florida courts have, in the past, issued some rulings, mostly favorable to increased public use (Walton County, et al v. Stop the Beach Renourishment and City of Daytona Beach v. Tona-Rama, Inc.), but the facts in those cases are somewhat different from the Amelia Island situation, and the Florida Legislature may have recently, with the passage of HB 631 that Mr. Sapp referred to, made moot prior court rulings on these issues. The fact is, Florida has neither judicially nor legislatively established a doctrine that would eliminate imperfect and case-by-case litigation to determine who may use the white sands. It has become a highly contentious and expensive area of the law, and now Florida seems to be on the threshold of jumping into the water with both feet. (No pun intended). It is worth mentioning that there are strong competing interests here. Beachfront property owners can legitimately feel just as strongly about persons who cross or use their property without permissions as Mr. Sapp would feel about a stream of daily strollers making a path across his lawn. Enjoyment of our beaches is a sacred right, but so are private property rights. One final word. My wife and I moved to Amelia Island 23 years ago, and we have seen the changes that have taken place, and while some of the amenities are enjoyable, overall, the changes sicken us, and the future does not bode well. I suppose it could be argued that we are at least a small part of the problem, as we moved here from elsewhere, adding our footprint to the ever increasing congestion. Mr. Sapp has on several occasions waxed poetically about Amelia Island of yesterday, but sadly, those days are gone forever, but they are nice to reminisce over, and we hope Mr. Ron Sapp will continue to remind us of what once it was like here. As you can see from todays Voice of the People section, some readers feel very strongly that the News-Leader should have further censored the harsh language in, or not published at all, an equally strongly felt submission printed on this page last Friday. The responding readers were offended by the message as well as the invective. But the News-Leader did not print the letter with the intent of offending readers. The NewsLeader printed the letter with the intention of informing you about how your fellow reader feels. We believe that you have a right to know what a neighbor, a friend, a customer, someone who shares the community with you thinks, whether you agree with them or not. We believe the writer was fearless to put his name on such a screed, in a community where the majority will roundly reject his minority opinion. We believe the News-Leader should continue to print opinions that will inevitably be repugnant to some. Freedom of speech and the press are key to being able to have the sensational conversations that communities need to have sometimes. Some have conflated the messenger with the message, so let us be clear: We do not print only the letters we agree with, and we certainly do not expect all members of our community, all readers, to agree with everything they read on the editorial page. If you did, then our community would be a surreal, boring place much like North Korea, with little need for a democratically-elected government, much less a community newspapers opinion page. We print letters because we support the voice of the people and an effort to be heard by fellow citizens in a public forum. Outrage is rampant in 2018. If a letter full of outrage can spur communication, discussion, and debate about why that is, or about other topics like politics and harsh language, we believe that is a good thing.Its amusing to see liberal Americans virtue signaling the world by apologizing for Trump for attacking Canadian Prime Minster Trudeau. According to these patriotic citizens, Trump is a boor, an insult-machine, crass and nasty; and he forced poor, traumatized Trudeau to courageously stand with armed guards nearby squeaking, We will not be bullied. Lets you and I do something here that the Mika and Joe Scarboroughs of the world simply cannot bring themselves to do: look at the trade wars from the perspective of the people most affected by years of ongoing battles. Canada actually dictates (Trudeau the Dictator?!!) how much milk, eggs and various dairy and poultry products farmers are allowed to produce, and at what price they may sell such products. This was put in place by the benevolent bosses of the Canadian government to compensate for surplus production in the 1950s and 1960s. To keep supply as stable as possible and make everything fair, the government benevolently blocks imports from the U.S. by whacking our dairy farmers with tariffs that are, as Trump has said, up to 270 percent on dairy products. So, if any Canadian says, Now doncha know yew guys import more dairy to Canada than we sell to you, its true, because their government makes sure they dont have much to spare. Then, theres timber. When builders shop for materials, they want good quality thats affordable and allows for a profit margin. When the Canadian government subsidizes their timber industry to the point where Canadian timber costs nearly 10 percent less than local U.S. timber, builders are going to dial the Canadian area code. Imagine that. Last November, the U.S. Commerce Department released their final finding that imports of Canadian softwood lumber are being unfairly subsidized and dumped in the United States. This is no small problem for American timber businesses. Imagine being in this business and then having to compete with Canadian companies whose government subsidizes about $5.5 billion worth of lumber so their companies can undercut your own. The Commerce Departments report said exporters from Canada have sold softwood lumber in the U.S. market at nearly 9 percent less than fair value. Nine percent. Thats yuuuuge! Add to that Canada is providing unfair subsidies at rates up to 18 percent. So, when mean old Mr. Trump slapped tariffs of up to 24 percent on imported Canadian softwood lumber, Trudeau squealed like a squirrel chain-sawed out of his home. The Press-Herald reported: What weve desired all this time is a level playing field, and news like this gives us confidence, said Jason Brochu, co-president of Pleasant River Lumber, which employs 300 people at (Maine) sawmills. With a strong presence from the government and such an emphasis on trade and jobs, it is timed perfectly for us to expand our operation and increase employment, which is exactly what we are going to do. (Note to Bobby DeNiro: Maine is in the United States.) U.S.-owned lumber companies have pushed for our government to counter these duties for years through the U.S. Lumber Coalition, which also has claimed Canada is dumping softwood lumber on the U.S. market below cost. So, if youre one of the Americans writing to Canadian news outlets to apologize for Trump, remember hes keeping his promise to fight Trudeaus Canadian tariff bullies. All I ask is please dont screw it up by suggesting Trudeau impose huge price increases for their delicious seven-year Canadian cheddar cheese. Its the best thing we get from Canada besides a well-manicured victim for American self-aggrandizing virtue signaling.

Email rick@DBCMedia.com.A letter writer (Beyond the pale) in the June 15 NewsLeader may be in need of a good sedative. He regrets his two years serving the nation underwater as a senior technician in the submarine force because there are now so many audacious deplorables among us who support President Trump. We are thankful for his service, and hope he eventually finds some peace. But veterans with significant experience have gener ally shown more subtle understanding of national security, and sought more balanced perspective of public affairs. As one familiar with how much cumulative time career submariners spend submerged, this veteran wonders if the unhappy sailor would be even more regretful of his service had he spent more than a comparatively minimal two years submerged. While we have much to be concerned about regarding the operations of our government, it is what we have warts and all, and we all win when we make useful inputs rather than hapless rants. Considering the high opinion the writer has of his own accomplishments, as a senior Navy veteran he could have plenty to offer to our elected officials in a more professionally constructive manner. Lets hope he might redirect his energies! T. J. Robertson Fernandina BeachrfrfnI read the News-Leaders recent article in Voice of the People entitled Beyond the pale. Perhaps public discourse and debate involving our President should include more facts and data than unsupported conclusions, opinions, obscene and profane words. In addition, the writer uses the word colliery in his article. That is a coalmine and build ings and equipment. I infer he meant corollary in his well reasoned writing. Steven Heller Fernandina BeachtbnrbbnBecause of the anger and misinformation inherent in them, I usually avoid editorial sections of newspapers. Then a colleague emailed Fridays section to me. The one entitled Beyond the pale was not only that in itself but it was so divisively vituperative that it shocks me that the editorial staff chose it for publication. Since my ego is not as bloated as the one possessed by the author of Beyond the Pale, I will not bore readers with my rsum. Suffice to state that I spent 20 years in the Navy and that my rsum is far superior. Though it may have galled him, due to my senior rank the author would have had to greet me with a crisp salute. I am registered as no party affiliation. What is lost in the letter is that, regardless of time or place, those of us who served in the military protected our fellow citizens not from Soviets or Nazis or terrorists, but mostly from unyielding tyrannical mindsets that cer tain groups held monopolies on morals, truth, vision, and good ideas. That because of this self-determined superiority, their dictum must prevail regardless of outcomes. That those who dare hold different viewpoints were not only wrong but immoral and villainous persons who deserved mistreatment. My concern today is not the threat from Soviets or other outside entities, but the threat from fellow citizens who with out shame stomp on civil liberties of those who think and vote differently than they. Current interpretation of civil rights is the freedom to speak only what certain groups want said, freedom to associate only with favored groups, freedom of religion if it is no religion and freedom to vote your conscious without intimidation only if one does not vote for a conserva tive. Recently this is evidenced by the firing of persons who were merely suspected of voting for Trump, the bullying letters written in feces sent to Republican college students, and the inability to earn a living in Hollywood or on Broadway due to one having a wrong political bent. Sadly, police in Virginia were called to arrest citizens for disturbing the peace because they placed Trump campaign signs in their own yards. As happened to my friend, persons shoved to the ground and kicked for having the nerve to practice their constitutional right (and civic duty) to attend the recent inauguration. Most disturbing has been the calling persons traitors, deplorables and f***ers and telling them to go to hell because they in good conscious voted in a way determined by pedan tics to be beyond the pale. As happens in a democracy, voting results swing and sway over time. So will those who now condemn Trump voters accept bullying and vilifying of themselves as fair play when their candidates eventually win? Regardless of which individuals and political group holds power, I will never ask to have even a single hour of my years of serving our country be given back to me. If it were within my capability I would give time back to malcontents who desire it. All I ask in favor is the return of productive discourse, of human dignity and of the bill of rights (in the ory AND practice) to all citizens regardless of their political speech, action Â or affiliation. Kathleen Warren Fernandina BeachrnThis is in response to Mr. Dennis Stipe ( News-Leader June 15). First, I cannot understand for the life of me why the NewsLeader printed such tripe. But thats freedom of the press. Second, you devoted fully two-thirds of your letter to brag ging about your accomplishments, the point of all of which escapes me entirely, and about which I see nothing to brag. You mentioned you graduated summa cum laude from some college associates degree program. Were you the only one in your class? Finally, I would urge you to change your voter registration to Democrat, then move to Hollywood where you will be wel comed with open arms by Mr. De Niro and the rest of his ilk. Joel M. Carter, M.D. Fernandina BeachrrnnrfbImmigration is about people; dividing parents from chil dren is abhorrent. Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. There seems to be no empathy in this government. The course of action separating parents from children at the border is unconscionable. This policy is a course of action proposed by this administration. It is not a law. This policy is a strategy, a means to an end. Children being housed in wire encampments and proposed tent cities is merciless. We are all immigrants one way or another. Former First Lady Laura Bush has likened these events to Japanese internment camps of WW II. DHS directions for caring for these children includes food, bed, games but no touching or comfort for distress of separa tion or illness. I have zero tolerance for this! Joyce A. Frink Fernandina BeachnfSomewhat perplexed and dismayed, I read Mr. Sapps column in Debate and Tackle regarding beach driving (Dont mess with my beach access, June 13). The perplexing part of his article was that he seems to relate beach access with beach driving. The former being a right that I agree each and every Floridian and Amelia Islander should be entitled to enjoy. The latter, however, is a destructive, invasive and sometimes quite dangerous proposition. Do we really need vehicles on our beaches? Fernandina has already limited beach driving to, as Mr. Sapp noted, 600 feet of sand. Why are we wasting valu able resources and breath over this topic? Last I checked, Fernandina and the rest of the island maintained 41 beautiful beach accesses, many with ample parking. This isnt, as Mr. Sapp attempted to characterize it, a beach access issue. To the contrary, this is a beach driving issue. No one that I am aware of is trying to privatize the beach north of Peters Point and elsewhere. Rather, it appears those few homeowners are simply hoping to make the beach there safer, free of garbage, fornication, intoxication and urination that seem to accompany those driving on the beach. As for the dismay, clearly Mr. Sapp did not know my grandfather all that well, or at all. Don Adams was a man of principle, a lover of this island and the beaches. Of the people left on this earth that knew him, I dare say none did better than me. So, please, Mr. Sapp, allow me to answer your question about what my grandfather would think of this issue. I will even use your own words. He would be disgusted and irate. Disgusted at the behavior and the actions of those actually driving on the beach, disgusted at the tolerance for what is allowed to continue to occur and disgusted that you put words in his mouth. He would be irate that those driving on the beach leave behind mounds of garbage on his beloved beach, urinate and defecate in his beautiful sand dunes and destroy the land he so fervently fought to protect. Similarly, hed be embarrassed that you, sir, turned this issue into one of access, one of affidavits, one of trespassing and ignored the real issue before our community.

She kept her phone on her pillow every night as her boss was wont to call her at three in the morning. Despite being a new mom to her third child, when that phone rang, she would get up, feed the baby, and do the research, she said. Nelson worked for McGuireWoods in private practice for seven years, then came the opportunity to run for office. Making the decision was a very difficult decision because I am quite a private person, Nelson said. My kids, my family had never been on social media. But now, I pimp them out all the time. She noted that her talk was unusual in that it was not a typical policy speech, but that groups of women are good audiences for the inspirational message of saying yes. Regardless of how the election could have turned out, Nelson said, Because I said yes, I faced something that scared me so much in its face and by virtue of doing that, I am forever a different person. ... We are all faced with decisions all the time where no is an easier and safer choice, and even if we choose yes, and it doesnt end up the way we were hoping, we are still better for taking on the journey. The next meeting of EmpowHER network is Sept. 17 when the guest speaker is scheduled to be retired U.S. Army Command Sergeant Major Teresa Vonceil King.rfContinued from 5A June 1, a Stop Work Order was issued. June 4, Notice of violation was sent certified mail to property owner, Fernandina Investment LLC. July 10, Code Enforcement Board hearing scheduled with Stop Work Order on agenda. The issuance or lifting of a stop work order is beyond my authority, Pope said. However, it is my understanding that the stop work order will remain in effect until a decision is rendered by the Code Enforcement Board, whether that takes place on July 10 or at a later date. Pope said the county is working with the local representative for the developer (Fernandina Investments LLC) to resolve the issue, but he did not identify that person. McCranie said the developer gets all the blame, which is just a shame. The sub-contractor made the mistake and will be changing their procedures on all future jobs in Nassau County and will call in an arborist to verify the tree markings before any trees are removed. But McCranie said the development company likely has to pay for the mistake, including new replacement trees, an arborist to oversee the work, legal fees involved with the illegal tree removals, etc., but said he is not the person negotiating on behalf of the developer. The developer has agreed to replace the removed trees with 23 six-inch magnolia or oak trees, McCranie said. That will cost the developer $50,000. In addition, we wont know until the Code Enforcement Board hearing whether nor not the developer also has to pay fines. We are hoping there will be no fines, because we did not want this to happen, McCranie stated. We hate the fact that these trees got taken out. We believe in preserving the tree canopy on the island. McCranie pointed to a design effort that was meant from the start to save trees. We got Hilton to change the prototype design for this style hotel from a front entrance to a side entrance and move it back on the property to save the big trees on the front of the site. The building will have to be constructed before the new trees are planted, he added. McCranie said nothing can be done at the site until after a hoped-for resolution at the July 10 meeting of the Code Enforcement Board. We are not even allowed to put fill dirt to protect the exposed roots of the trees that remain. He added that an arborist has been called in to evaluate the situation to see if the county will allow action to protect those trees. Meanwhile, the county is reviewing possible major changes to its tree ordinance that applies to Amelia Island. The BOCC reviewed those proposed changes June 11. The ordinance is very vague now, McCranie said. That is why the county is working on a new revised Amelia Island Tree Protection and Replacement Ordinance. Depending on what happens with the Code Enforcement Board meeting July 10, progress on the development of the new Home2 Suites by Hilton Hotel could be set back at least two months from its previously announced June 2019 opening, and that delay means more cost to the developer. The hotel site, which is currently in an unincorporated area, lies on a narrow section of a wooded wildlife corridor stretching between Egans Creek to the north and the Fernandina Beach Golf Club to the south. There are plans for the hotel property to be annexed into the city in the future because it will be using the citys water and sewer system, as well as police and fire services. The Fernandina Beach City Commission was scheduled to address mechanisms to protect the disappearance of green space at a regular meeting on Tuesday with the second reading of a Land Conservation Fund Ordinance on its agenda. The developer of the hotel is IMIC Hotels of Columbia, S.C., which also owns the Hampton Inn almost directly across the street at 2549 Sadler Road. Interstate Management & Investment Corporation, which operates under the name IMIC Hotels, opened the Hampton Inn in 1997 and has been a good steward of the island and Fernandina Beach citizen since, said McCranie. IMIC President Bert Pooser III said this is the first Home2 Suites by Hilton the company has developed, although it does have other Hilton products in its portfolio. The construction company for the hotel project is Pinkerton & Laws of Atlanta, which Pooser said has an impressive portfolio of client projects it has done in the hospitality industry. The company recently completed a Home2 Suites by Hilton hotel near the airport in Brunswick, Ga. and is in the process of building one in LaGrange, Ga. Fernandina Investments LLC, Pooser told the News-Leader, is a company specific to this project and which was set up this year, according to state records. It is based at the home office of IMIC Hotels in Columbia, S.C.. The News-Leader attempted to get input for this article from the development company and Archie Johns of A.J. Johns Company, but neither responded to our phone messages before the print deadline. Public Defenders Office.

But in just three weeks, while I was away on an assignment in Serbia, it emerged that the Amelia Island I know and love is facing a big threat. A recently passed, poorly written Florida law now looks like it is giving the publics right to use the dry sand portions of the beach the part we sunbathe and build sand castles on, the part we walk when the tide is high and we want to go for miles, the part we mostly use to the private homeowners along much of it. But not without a fight, thats for sure. I recently attended a beach affidavit signing event at the Peters Point county beach access. Lots of people were hanging out on the beach as usual, but were sure to see the canopy where volunteer notaries were certifying everyones signed affidavits which asked questions like, What parts of the beach do you use, from where to where? and, What activities have you observed on dry sand areas of the beach? Now we have to prove we use the beach! Why else did most of us move here, anyway? Why do people come here for their vacations? What is Fernandina without a Beach? I couldnt have timed my visit to Peters Point any better all the factors were at play. Just behind the affidavitsigning canopy were the giant high-rise condominiums of Carlton Dunes. This is the usual start of my five-mile morning beach walks, that Ive been doing for years, although not as often lately as I should. My early morning walks start at Peters Point and continue to American Beach, where I head inland and take the pedestrian pathway back to my origin. All along the beach, most mornings, I greet dog-walkers, say hello to turtle volunteers searching for nests, talk with fishermen about their catches, watch kids digging in the sand, and people lying in the sun. All along the way I have always seen people enjoying the dry sand areas of this particular beach. Ive written about these walks many times in my 15 or so years writing this column, and most always I find something new to talk about. But today this walk turned sour on me. It was already too hot for a long walk, but I started south anyway. I was quickly horrified to see new signs in front of these condos all the way from Peters Point to the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. No trespassing or camping. Private property extends to mean high water mark seaward of this sign. I never before considered that this walk of mine down the beach could be closed to me, but if the Ritz-Carlton follows suit, and the beachfront homeowners beyond this do the same, my walk is over. When I saw these signs, I walked back to the ocean; the tide was coming in and who even knows exactly where the mean high water mark is. I took a guess and shot a photo from there, with the Carlton Dunes looking small in the distance. All that soft white sand, a place where people fly kites and play Frisbee, walk their dogs and lie in the sun, right next to the main parking lot at Peters Point. On the other side of Peters Point is another private complex and more private houses to the north. If they follow this approach as well, all the beach goers to Peters Point could now be crushed into a very limited beach closed off by private property on both sides. Ever been to New Jersey beaches? That could be us. And what about all those houses even further north from there? Yes, we have beach accesses that we are proud of, but what beach will they access beyond the width of the small parking lots? Private homes border these accesses and they could potentially close off their dry sand too. While I was pondering the horrors of a new world on Amelia Island, I noticed still other related activity. Manzie and Drake surveyors were on the beach too, following Nassau County orders to mark another invisible beach boundary the erosion control line, which might well be closer to the homes than the mean high water mark, but who knows. All I know is, everyone I know loves the beach. Our beach. Our home. Lets not let that be taken away. Pat Foster-Turley is a zoologist on Amelia Island.

They landed kingfish, red snapper, grouper, amberjack and sea bass on Sunday. The Florida High School Athletic Associations Fred E. Rozelle Sportsmanship Award winners have been announced, and Yulee Middle School was among them. Recognizing member schools that promote sportsmanship both on and off the field, the award is given to schools whose athletic teams demonstrated exemplary sportsmanship during the 2017-18 regular season and FHSAA State Series competition. This year, 10 high schools and two middle schools received the prestigious award. One of our goals as an Association is to promote and reward outstanding sportsmanship, FHSAA Executive Director George Tomyn said. This mission statement goes far beyond the confines of competition; it reaches into everyday life and will assist our student-athletes as they develop into productive citizens in communities around the state. We are thrilled to award these schools who exemplify not only sportsmanship, but teamwork and citizenship as well. Â The award, presented annually since 1991, is named in honor of FHSAA Commissioner Emeritus Fred E. Rozelle. The overall classification recipient is presented to one school in each classification whose total sports program best exemplifies the qualities of sportsmanship as demonstrated by its coaches, players and spectators. Awards are also given to a runner up within each classification. Criteria for selection of the winners includes programs and activities implemented within the school and community to promote sportsmanship; the number and type of exceptional sportsmanship reports; and the source of the nomination. Classification runner-ups receive $500 and a commemorative plaque, with the classification winner taking home $2,500 and a plaque. The Fernandina Beach High School girls basketball team kicked off its summer schedule by playing a double-header on Thursday against Bishop Snyder and Fleming Island. The FBHS Lady Pirates took control early and never looked back as they defeated Bishop Snyder 44-24. The Lady Pirates played Fleming Island next and found themselves behind the whole game. But, they took the lead with less than a minute to go on a 3-pointer by freshman Maddie Millar. The Lady Pirates kept their composure in the final seconds, winning 40-38. It has a different vibe from last season, as we have a new nucleus of players learning to gel together and learn our system of play, Coach Jacob Nantz said. I am encouraged by a lot of what I saw, but we realize we have a lot to work on in fundamentals and game decisions as we are setting our goals high for next season.

Just after high noon, a large kingfish took one of our long flat-lined blue runners and took off on a long run, Spencer Ross said. Jeffery Crabtree took charge of the deeply-bent kingfish rod and moved to the front of my Mercury-powered kingfish boat Flossy. I put my Mercury outboards in gear and began to chase that big kingfish down while maintaining a deep bend in Jeffs kingfish rod. Twenty minutes later, we sank our long kingfish gaff into a 48.9-pound kingfish and won first-place honors in last weekends SKA-sanctioned Two Way Kingfish Tournament. Earlier that morning, we checked out of Georgias Brunswick shipping channel and ran some 100 miles south to a deepwater kingfish live bottom. After jigging up a livewell full of blue runners, we began slow trolling live boats deep with our boats downriggers and on the surface. Kingfishing was slow during the morning until that big king struck a long flat-line live blue runner at high noon. Fortunately, the seas were calm, making the 200-mile round trip pleasant, especially when we were anticipating that we had the winning kingfish iced down in our kingfish bag. Making long-distance runs with modern day kingfish boats is made possible with twin and even quad outboards that can speed from 60-70 miles per hour on a slick, calm ocean. Many kingfish boats are rigged with 200-300 hp outboards with the change to fourstroke, more efficient outboards has been dramatic during past kingfish seasons. Ten percent of the horsepower of your outboard will give you a close estimate on how many gallons your outboard will burn in one hour at wide open throttle. For example, 300 hp will require 30 gallons per hour at wide open throttle. This formula can differ from 10-20 percent or, if you are running at 30 miles per hour, you are burning one gallon per mile. This will give you a close estimate on how many gallons of fuel you will burn when running and gunning for big macks. Several marine companies offer a variety of electronics that can accurately calculate the amount of fuel your engine or engines are burning. FloScan instrument company offers a variety of fuel monitoring gauges, in both dial and digital readouts. Mercury Marine and Yamaha Outboards also offer fuel monitoring gauges. Fuel-monitoring instruments show boaters when their outboard or outboard motors are running at the most fuelefficient RPMs. Fuel monitoring instruments will also tell boaters when the boat is burning more fuel than it normally burns because of fouled spark plugs or even a clogged fuel filter. An increased fuel reading and increased RPMs at the same speed should wave a red flag in front of the operator that something is wrong with the boats outboard or outboards. In many cases, costly repair bills can be avoided by fixing the problem before a major breakdown happens to your boats outboard engine. I know in the past that I have been guilty of purchasing lower-grade outboard motor oils but soon learned this could be a costly mistake down the road. Make sure you purchase the recommended outboard engine oil, and your outboard engine will not only run better, but it will also burn less fuel, which is also a huge saving with the price of fuel.

Nw rfntbf CtwrS pllt W e all struggle to find the best way to keep track of our many appointments, birthdays and other critical information. How to keep organized? Its a puzzle. I continue to try and find the perfect system. Too many calendars fill my life. There is the one on my computer that I dont trust. The same calen dar is supposed to pop-up on my phone and laptop. A cheerful bing tells me that I have a dentist appointment or lunch with friends or it is a grandchilds birthday. Everyone has a different system. I struggle between my technology and my good old-fashioned appointment calendar. I like to rely on a real, hold-in-your-hand, old-fashioned paper calendar. It is large with generous boxes to fill in appointments and birthdays. Sometimes those handwritten notes are mysterious. I once found a neat note indicating a lunch date. Problem? No name of who I was joining for lunch or where. Do they all match? Think you know the answer. Rarely. Big Guy shakes his head and smiles when he sees me juggling my calendars and trying to reconcile all of them to ensure I do not miss anything. Many use both. Big Guy loves his computer screen calendar but also has a small Day-Timer. We all strive to find the perfect system and ensure we will be at the right place, at the right time with the right people (or doctor). So bless those patient receptionists who spend their days calling people to remind them of an appointment. You know the call. You look at the caller ID and it is doctor so and sos office. Every once in a while, you realize, yes, your calendar system has failed. The appointment either works into your schedule or it doesnt and Rebecca Receptionist tries to find a new date to fit in your busy schedule. Then she has to take her list of folks waiting for a cancellation and contact them and try and coordinate with their calendar. Bet she hears more than her share of excuses for missed appointments. The dog ate my calendar? Lists challenge me too. Many people keep their shopping lists on their phones. The phone thing doesnt work for me but works for lots of people. I envy those superorganized people who go up and down the grocery store aisles and checking their phone list to ensure they dont forget anything. Big Guy keeps his list on his phone. When I remind him we are out of dog food, he is quick to make a note on his phone list. I am an old-fashioned paper list person. Where is that list when I get to the store? On the kitchen counter. Technology or pen and paper or both? We all have our own system.

JULY/SEPTEMBER SENIOR LLIFE 9 Continuing our support of the Council on Aging
10 JULY/SEPTEMBER SENIOR LLIFE Painting a multigenerational portrait through NCCOA hree generations of the Gilbert-Lindsey family love taking art classes together. Not unusual. What is unusual is the venue: the Nassau County Council on Aging. This issue s cover feature is a testament to the power of family and the surprisingly far-reaching interest of NCCOAs enrichment class offerings. The Gilbert-Lindsey family has lived in Fernandina Beach for the past 27 years. Joyce Gilbert is a grandmother with eight children, 24 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren and six great-great grandchildren. Cindy Lindsey, Joyces daughter, has seven children and 10 grandchildren. Cindys daughter, Charity, is a rising 11th grader with lots of friends and diverse interests. Togetherness is the norm for the Gilbert-Lindsey family. Their homes are within walking distance, most special occasions are celebrated as one unit and the Community Baptist Church in Yulee is home away from home. As a matter of fact, Cindys husband, Carl, is the pastor and she is the church secretary. So, when the opportunity arose to attend art class at NCCOA as a trio, Joyce, Cindy and Charity didnt hesitate. We just really like doing things together, Joyce said. Its second nature. Cindy had originally reached out to Melody Dawkins, NCCOA Membership Director, regarding volunteer opportunities. Through conversation, they soon realized their sons knew each other. In sharing their own family news, Melody spoke with her about the many classes offered at NCCOA. The art classes struck a chord. Ive always been art-inclined, said Joyce. She even created a mural on her living room wall, complete with a lighthouse, waterfalls and church. Cindy teaches a co-op cake decorating class, and Charity is involved with the art program through the Christian Homeschool Support Group, Nassau County Home Educators (NCHE). More than 200 families in and around Nassau County comprise the high school group. Photography and acrylic painting are two of her favorites. Even though NCCOA programs tend to skew much higher in age than her Generation Z school classes, Charity doesnt see any downside to learning about new visual and aesthetic art forms in a group of folks usually more than triple and quadruple her years. Theyre all people, she says, and part of our community. So far Joyce, Cindy and Charity have enjoyed watercolor, clay, intro to drawing and pen, pencil and color classes together at the Councils current location across from Baptist Medical Nassau. They admit theyve had fun socializing in the cozy little building, but are really looking forward to the grand opening of The Life Center at 1901 Island Walkway. The time spent bonding with family is priceless, Cindy says. Socializing with each other is important, as well as getting to know our community even better . It s more fun with people you know and care about, adds Charity. And, Joyce chimes in, If you like people, join us! On behalf of the Council, we certainly hope you do. rf nt b TThree generations of the Gilbert-Lindsey Family Joyce, Cindy and Charity learn from Lamar Miles as teaches the finer points of his characteristic painting style. Lamar is a Fernandina Beach native and his artwork is featured on local buildings in Northeast Florida and Georgia. BRANDIHILL.COM

JULY/SEPTEMBER SENIOR LLIFE 13 tbbBy Jay Magee, APR Community Hospice & Palliative Care For people who live with an advanced, life-limiting illness and those who love them, hospice care offers much-needed comfort, relief and peace of mind. Born out of European care traditions from the Middle Ages, the modern American hospice movement began in the 1970s, and it has taken root in a big way. In 2016, the National Hospice & Palliative Care Orgacomfort and the best possible quality of life. While hospice care has been available in the U.S. for nearly 50 years, numerous popular myths persist even today about what hospice isand what it isnt. Here in Northeast Florida, Community Hospice & Palliative Care has served more than 200,000 patients and families since our founding nearly 40 years ago. Below is just a small sampling of the more prevalent myths we have heard over the years, along with the truths you need to know. MYTH: Hospice is a place. A CLEARER PICTURE: Instead of being a place of care, hospice is a unique kind of care for people with advanced illness and those who love them. It is an approach to care that accepts dying as a natural part of life when death is inevitable, seeking neither to speed up the dying process nor avoid it. Community Hospice & Palliative Care is available wherever you reside in your private home, in a nursing home, assisted living community or in the hospital. At times, pain or symptoms tions, we offer a higher inpatient level of care at our homelike inpatient centers. In Nassau County, the Community Hospice Jane and Bill Warner Center for Caring, on the campus of Baptist Medical Center Nassau, provides this special kind of care when needed most. MYTH: Hospice is only for people in their last days of life. A CLEARER PICTURE: Here in Florida, hospice care is appropriate for those who have a limited prognosis of 12 months or less (six months for Medicare eligibility) if the illness runs its normal course. A common misconception about hospice is that it is a last resort and that a person must be bedridden or unable to communicate to receive help. Nothing could be further from the truth. Involving hospice care early means theres more quality time for patients to spend with the people they love and time to MYTH: Hospice care means giving up hope. Hospice involves acknowledging that an illness in its advanced stage may not be cured. A CLEARER PICTURE: Accepting hospice services does not mean you or your loved ones need to surrender hope or ongoing medical support. You can continue to plan each day for the best possible quality of life, even while no longer pursuing aggressive curative treatments. Your decision to receive may discontinue hospice care and elect to receive other kinds of care. MYTH: Hospice means nothing else can be done. A CLEARER PICTURE: At the core of the hospice philosophy of care is the relief of pain and symptoms, for you and your loved ones. Community Hospice & Palliative Care focuses on providing comfort when there is no cure and offers comprehensive services to enhance your quality of life and support your family members. MYTH: Hospice is just about dying. A CLEARER PICTURE: Hospice is about living as fully as possible and making the most of the time you have. Its about living in comfort and with dignity and helping you have a better quality of life with the support you and your family need. MYTH: Hospice means giving up control. A CLEARER PICTURE: Hospice care gives you choices about where to receive care, how you want to live your life, and decisions regarding the kind of care and treatments you do and do not want. Your hospice care is individualized based on input from you, your family, your physician and the hospice interdisciplinary team. MYTH: Hospice costs a lot of money A CLEARER PICTURE: Financial issues are among the greatest concerns people have about health care. Paying for doctor visits, hospitalization, equipment, medications, longterm care and more can be very expensive. Hospice care is the exception. At Community Hospice & Palliative Care, we work to ensure Medicaid and most private insurance plans cover most costs associated with hospice care, we provide services to all who request them and are eligible, regardless of ability to pay. MYTH: Hospice is just for cancer patients. A CLEARER PICTURE: Hospice improves the quality of life for people with a wide range of advanced illnesses, including (but not limited to) congestive heart failure (CHF), stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), Alzheimers disease, advanced dementia, kidney disease, liver disease, Parkinsons disease, Lou Gehrigs disease (ALS), complications of AIDS, multiple sclerosis and cancer. MYTH: Ill have to give up my own doctor A CLEARER PICTURE: Every aspect of Community Hospice & Palliative Care involves teamwork, which can include your own doctor. Our professional hospice team members are experienced in coordinating and discussing with your doctor the best plan of care for you. T o request hospice care or a no-obligation information visit, contact Community Hospice & Palliative Care at 904-2685200 or 800-274-6614 toll-free, or visit CommunityHospice. com to learn more about our comprehensive care and support.
14 JULY/SEPTEMBER SENIOR LLIFE Stephen Lucie Â sports medicine. He graduated from the University of North Carolina and the Medical College of Georgia, and he completed his residency in orthopedics at the University of Colorado in Denver. BY R R S STEph PH EN L LUCIE, MD D Lets face it. Most of us have no intention of growing old gracefully. In fact, many of us lead, or plan to lead, an active lifestyle well into our 60s, 70s and 80s. If youre in the Baby Boomer Generation born between 1945 and 1965 chances are youve recently been seen bicycling, jogging or running a 5k. This is a good thing! Even though a sedentary lifestyle is a problem that affects most Americans and contributes to rising obesity and diabetes, the Baby Boomer Generation stay active. While sedentary counterparts develop the same health Â issues as the average American, a subset of Baby Boomers is bucking the trend by staying active and living their best. Depending on level of activity its not unusual to see younger Baby Boomers, active people in their 50s, develop muscle pulls and strains common in younger athletes. Shoulder and knee problems are some of the most common issues affecting baby boomers and producing the phenomenon known as boomeritis. These are mid-life, active people who encounter a snag in their active lifestyle. There are new ways to treat wear-andtear problems and preserve your activity level, but prevention is the best way to keep you on top of your game. Here are some ways to keep you healthy: Stay active. You will feel younger and healthier than your counterparts, and you might be able to delay osteoarthritis and joint problems. Exercise daily not just on weekends. rect your posture and make sure youre moving correctly. Choose good footwear Pay attention to your body Dont continue working out through the pain. Improve your posture, and work on avoid injuries. See a doctor if you feel discomfort. Early intervention is best. How can you tell when it s time to see a doctor? When your gait starts to be affected by pain, or when you develop a limp, its probably time to talk to a doctor about knee or hip discomfort. If any other problem curtails your normal activities, its time to get those problems checked out by a family doctor and possibly an orthopedic specialist. If a doctor tells you that you have early arthritis, you can stay active by switching to low impact activities such as swimming, bicycling and elliptical machine workouts. These are preferred over high-impact activities like running. If you enjoy group exercise classes, you can continue by simply modifying your movements. Most instructors will accommodate your needs and help you exercise effectively and without risking injury. The deterioration of muscle, bone strength and agility might seem like a normal part of the aging process, but you can avoid boomeritis by exercising with a new awareness of your strengths in order to preserve your active lifestyle.

16 JULY/SEPTEMBER SENIOR LLIFE BY MARK BANDYK, MD D MPH, MS S As a man ages, his prostate gland, a golfball-size organ, Â part of the lower urinary system, becomes more important to him. The prostate gets a mans attention when he starts developing voiding symptoms with more frequent day and night trips to the bathroom, slow stream and straining with urination. Â Many men live with these symptoms, because they are getting older and thats life. Â However that is not necessary nor true. There are numerous medications to open an obstructing prostate or shrink an enlarged one. Â If medicines fail to correct the problem, there are both minimally invasive treatments and surgery with high success rates to improve the quality of life. Â V oiding problems are more likely to be related to an enlarged prostate or benign prostatic hypertrophy. It is fortuitous that a man gets these symptoms as they may lead him to seek medical attention. In most situations, there are no warning signs with the development of prostate cancer. Â When the prostate gland grows, it has the ability to grow with both benign and cancerous growth. Therefore, it is very important a man is screened for prostate cancer with a PSA (Prostate PSA is protein produced by normal, as well as malignant cells of the prostate gland.

Â However, it remains a Â there will be about 165,000 new cases Â and about 30,000 deaths due to prostate cancer. Â It is not a perfect screening test, so an elevated PSA blood test must be further evaluated with a biopsy to In 2018, I am amazed that men are not adequately screened and presented with advanced stage disease. Lack of knowledge regarding PSA cannot always be blamed on a mans apathy. Â In the recent past, Â misinformation in the popular media and medical literature has given the impression that the PSA blood harm to a man. In an effort to improve PSA screening and the detection of prostate cancer, the American Urologic Association guidelines have recently focused attention on younger men, under 69 years of age. Â A younger men would therapy if prostate cancer is diagnosed. Â With new research developments, Â I utilize the most accurate methods of diagnosis using prostate MRI imaging, MRI-guided fusion biopsy and genetic testing. If the diagnosis of cancer is made early, the mortality rate is low. About 1 man in 40 will die of prostate cancer. Â Now we know some prostate cancer grows so slowly, so low-risk cancer can be safely observed, managed with active surveillance. Â Intermediate or high-risk cancer can be curative with robotic surgery and proton radiation therapy. Â My 15-year experience with robotic surgery has demonstrated minimal side effects of incontinence and erectile dysfunction with a high probability of surgical cure. Â Also, nonsurgical therapy is possible with proton therapy. Â In my Urologic Oncology practice, I utilize all of the current modalities in the diagnosis and management of prostate cancer. Â In conclusion, there are important things to know about the detection and therapy for prostate cancer: 1. There are no warning signs for early stage prostate cancer. 2. T rust and obtain a PSA Â blood test, and physical exam for early detection. 3. If urinary symptoms develop, seek medical attention for help. 4. Early diagnosis of prostate cancer leads to more management options and optimal therapeutic Â outcomes. Â 5.
