rfn rS fntb tb A b R rf E FntbT b LtN c b Ob PrrbP rc b Prc R rf Prb Srb Multiple law enforcement agencies conducted a manhunt for a federal prisoner who escaped from the Nassau County Jail by jumping from the roof.June 30, 1993 Nassau Countys governing board drew a proverbial line in the sand Monday in an attempt to protect the publics right to access a certain area of local beaches. Commissioners unani mously passed a customary use ordinance on its third and final reading. The new ordinance takes effect July 1. The ordinance is a local effort to counteract HB   631, which the Florida Legislature passed earlier this year. Those opposed to the state law say that it limits public access to areas of Amelia Islands beaches above the mean high water line, or the official point where sand gets wet during high tide. The socalled dry sand area is the point of con tention addressed in the law. Beachfront private property owners could, theoreti cally, stop the public from accessing or using that part of the beach. However, the new Florida law also includes this caveat: If the recreational use of the sandy area adjacent to the mean high tide has been ancient, rea sonable, without interruption and free from dispute, such use, as a matter of custom, should not be interfered with by the owner. Efforts by citizens in the county to prove this customary use of the beach have taken the form of an affidavit drive, resulting in thousands of residents tes tifying to their recreational use of the official dry area of the beaches in Nassau County. At meetings held June 21 and June 25, the Nassau County Board of County Commissioners discussed the issue and received input from the public. At the June 21 meeting, County Attorney Mike Mullin read the proposed ordinance and explained the process: The BOCC had directed myself, the county manager, and the director of planning and economic opportunity (to act) as a fact finding committee, Mullin said. We held five fact-finding meetings where members brought documents and provided testimony. We met separately with some individuals. While the over whelming majority of the affidavits are establishing customary public use of the dry sand areas, there are affidavits that have been received that are indicating where they dont think customary public use has existed, for and against custom ary public use. Most speakers at both meetings were in favor of the proposed ordinance, but some said the issue was not as much about people on the beach, but about vehicles driven in a thoughtless and sometimes dangerous manner. One Sandpiper Loop resident, Howard Banaszak, said at the June 21 meeting that he believes that the public is being misinformed about HB 631. I do understand that HB 631 has been presented to the public as home owners want the beach for themselves, Banaszak said. Not only is that ridicu lous and shameful, it is an outright lie. Fear mongering it is called, the tactic of purposely and needlessly arousing public fear about an issue. Our concern has never been about beach access. It is about the north and south driving in the dry sand area and the damage it is doing to our dune system. Another Sandpiper Loop resident, Mike Lyninsky, said beach driving at Peters Point Beach Front Park is out of control, with drivers speeding and drag racing on the beach. He said he has called 911 about the issue, but was alleg edly told by officers from the Nassau County Sheriffs Office that he would be locked up as a nuisance caller. Attorney Earl Barker of Slott, Barker & Nussbaum, a Jacksonville firm, spoke on behalf of the Sandpiper Homes Association, and said the county needs to look to the future of its beaches with regard to growth. Your current population is about 82,000 people, Barker said. Thats up from 57,000 just a few years ago. If you extrapolate the census data, your population within (fewer than 10 years) will be over 100,000 people. Whats rea sonable when there were 57,000 people is not reasonable when there are twice that many. The burden on the beaches will become worse. The concentration on my clients property is unreasonable. It endan gers the beach. It endangers habitat. It At its June 19 meeting, the Fernandina Beach City Commission discussed how to bring together stake holders to work to develop the citys marina and waterfront. Paul Lorre, who heads Citizens for Restoration of the Fernandina Harbor, said a Waterfront Partnership Committee was formed in 2005. The Fernandina Harbor Marina was desig nated as a waterfront community as a part of the Waterfront Florida partner ship program. But some things didnt go forward due to a lack of specificity, a lack of polit ical buy-in and polarization within the community as to what should be done at the waterfront, according to Lorre, who asked the commission if the WPC could work with a new Marina Advisory Board, a body the city is currently work ing to create. Fernandina Beach Planning Manager Kelly Gibson said the committee was very active before the 2008 recession, with a goal of retaining a working water front community. It had members from the port, the mills, Tiger Point Marina, citizens who lived and worked downtown, property owners in the CRA there was a wide range of stakeholders who engaged on a monthly basis, Gibson said. She said that, while the WPC is defunct, it was never officially sunsetted and could be revived. It still exists and could be reformed and have a clear initial objective to work first and foremost on the marina, Gibson said. Right now the state is not very active in that partnership organiza tion, but the network itself still exists and the contacts related to that network. Theres a lot of good dialogue and feed back we can get from those communi ties. Mayor Johnny Miller said the pro gram could work hand-in-hand with the Marina Advisory Board, when and if that The Board of County Commissioners continues to wrestle with a projected budget deficit for fiscal year 201819, and their solution so far is to raise property taxes. As a result, two additional special meetings have been scheduled. These meetings are open to the public. The first will take place on Monday, July 2, and the second on Wednesday, July 11. Both are sched uled to begin at 6 p.m. at the James S. Page Governmental Complex at 96135 Nassau Place in Yulee. Justin Stankiewicz, director of the Office of Management and Budget, has assured county commissioners that he can balance the budget by using reserves, but there would be no addi tional capital improvement projects, no additional monies for nonprofits, no increases anywhere, and no reserves to respond to future hurricane damage. One proposed solution is to increase the millage rate on property in unincor porated areas by 1.9 mils. The millage rate has not been increased since 2014. At that time, county staff had recom mended an increase of two mills but the commissioners approved an increase of just one mill. One mill is $1 per $1,000 of the tax able value of a property. Using a sample property valued at $100,000, after adjust ing for homestead and other exemptions, a   millage rate of 5 mills would result in a tax obligation of $500 ($100,000 x 0.005). The proposed increase to the millage rates does not include state or local school board millage rates, the city of Fernandina Beach, towns of Callahan or Hilliard millage rates, nor specialty taxes such as the St. Johns River Water Management District, Florida Inland Navigation District (F.I.N.D.) or Amelia Island Mosquito Control District mill age rates. If the tax increase is approved, it would go into effect in September.

Neighbors were said to have become concerned about the welfare of four children, ages 2 through 7, living at the home. The deputies reported they found the children barefoot, unwashed, and scratching and itching constantly. The youngest child was said to be suffering from a severe case of diaper rash. Abnormally copious amounts of insects (roaches, fleas, flies, mosquitoes, ants) insect waste and even rodent drop pings were observed in both bedrooms, according to the NCSO report. Sylvia Christine Butler, 44, and her son, Brandon Sawyer Brantley, 25, were arrested on suspicion of child abuse and child neglect without great bodily harm or permanent dis ability. Butler and Brantley both allegedly stated that they moved into the residence after Butler took custody of the four juveniles approximately 1-2 years prior. The juveniles were already living at the residence with their mother who was arrested for Child Neglect. Both suspects stated that the residence was in similar or worse condition when they originally moved in. The childrens grandmother came from Jacksonville to collect them. According to inmate information provided online by the NCSO, Butler and Brantley were each being held at the Nassau County Jail on a $45,008 bond.rtbntbbnnt bnnbtb Butler Brantley rffnttb fbtWATERFRONT Continued on 5ArbtbffbtbJULIA ROBERTS/NEWS-LEADERLowell Hall is one of the local citizens who made a monumental effort to collect affidavits attesting to recreational customary use of the beaches in Nassau County.

He was born to the late Clarence Peter and Naomi Parks Massing on June 26, 1929 in Buffalo, N.Y. The family lived in Kenmore, N.Y., where he graduated from Kenmore High School in 1947. After graduating high school, he was an honors gradu ate of the Albright Art School in Buffalo in 1950. He enlisted in the U.S. Army and served honorably from 1951 to 1953 during the Korean Conflict. He married his sweetheart, Maureen Allen, in 1954. Together they raised their five children in Tonawanda, N.Y. before relocating to Houston, Texas. His entire professional career he worked for Union Carbide on a number of important proj ects including rocket fuels, wastewater treatment, and oilfield services where he travelled extensive ly. After retirement he and Maureen made their home on Amelia Island in 1991. With his lifelong dedication to art, Paul exhib ited his work frequently wherever he lived. As a member of the Buffalo Art Society, he partook in annual exhibitions and frequently exhibited at The Allentown Art Show in downtown Buffalo. Amelia Island has benefited from Paul in many ways. As an artist he donated his time and resourc es to the Island Art Association. His weekly life drawing sessions drew a variety of artists for a concentrated experience capturing the likenesses of local models from the island. Paul never met a stranger and flirted with most of the female popula tion of the island along with many of its visitors. Due to his propensity for long-winded conversa tion, many considered Paul an ambassador if not a de-facto governor of the island. Paul designed T-shirts and posters for the annual shrimp festi val, exhibited his artwork across the island and the state, and illustrated many books with local authors, and his large painted map of the island at the Residence Inn has guided many out-of-town visitors. After 57 years of marriage he lost his beloved Maureen in 2011. Surviving family members include Pauls older sister, Mary Andrews of St. Petersburg, Fla., and her many children, grandchildren and great-grand children. Paul is survived by his children, Patricia A.

Teachers from around Florida took time out of their summer earlier this month to speak to the Nassau County School Board about the need for a planning period for teachers. Some brought statistics to show ways the budget could be adjusted to provide that time. Jim Glackin, a calculus teacher at Fernandina Beach High School, said that it has puzzled him that some school districts in the state could afford a planning period for teachers, but Nassau County could not, so he did a little digging into the numbers. He said a planning time committee estimated it would cost $3.4 million to fund additional teachers for a planning period. Did you realize that Nassau County ranks 23rd in average teacher pay, but we rank 51st out of 67 districts in the percent of our general fund spent on instruction? Glackin asked the board members. Mathematically, the only way to do that is, we save money by not hiring teachers. He went on to compare how the Nassau County School District spends its money on teachers with other comparable districts. Nassau County spends 58.6 percent of our general funds on instruction, Glackin said. The state average is 62.1 percent. If we spend the state average, thats $3.5 million more for instruction. That pays for a planning period. If we use the 10 districts to us closest in size, they spend 62.4 percent. Thats $3.7 million more. Districts within 5,000 of our enrollment, 62.3 percent. Thats still $3.7 million. The districts within 3,000 enrollment of us, thats including us dragging down the average, is 61 percent. That only gets us $2.4 million, but thats a great start. Tyler Odom, Fernandina Beach High School band director, said that he usually works six-day weeks, and has students for 10 hours per day. He said that he needs a planning period in order to prepare for his students, whose skills and ability level can vary. Im teaching three different courses next year, two of those periods will have five different sections, band one through five, he explained. While that is the norm, I could use some time to differentiate between freshman and advanced seniors. Im teaching a class Ive never taught. I need time to go through the textbook so that I can adequately prepare lessons for my students. I dont know how Im going to do that without a real planning time. Odom said that, while teaches do have time in the morning before school starts, that time is often spent in parent-teacher conferences and meetings with administration. Without that planning time during the day I dont understand how any of us can make functional lessons, he said. Nicole Biener is an Alachua County teacher who was in training in Ponte Vedra with some Nassau County teachers on the day of the School Board meeting. She told the School Board that she and other teachers made the drive to Fernandina Beach after learning that Nassau County teachers dont have a daily planning period. They were the only teachers from multiple districts that do not have a planning period, Biener said. Several of us were so appalled by this that we skipped dinner and drove an hour and 20 minutes to let you know that you can, and you must, do that for students and teachers, and the support staff it affects. I understand its money, but it is important that something is done differently. Biener said that the planning time is critical to the quality of education a student receives. Multiple studies have shown that, when teachers have time to plan, and to collaborate together, students show bigger gains, she said. Isnt that what we all want? We want them to learn more and gain more and grow more. For the sake of the children, I encourage you to adjust your budget and fully fund teacher planning. In my district, we teach five out of six periods, we are given a designated planning period. If we teach six out of six periods, we are compensated for that, and I dont mean comp time, I mean money. Some teachers do it, but theres lots of us that say, I need that time to reset, to make sure I am prepared and ready to help the next batch. Jamie Vienneau, president of the Nassau Teachers Association, said that Nassau teachers were able to establish through collective bargaining a one-hour early release and once-per-quarter half day so that teachers have time to plan, but that enough teachers could be hired to ensure a daily planning period by increasing the districts budget. The Nassau County school district spends 58 percent of our budget on instructional salaries, Vienneau said. The state average is 62 percent. If we could increase the budget by 4 percent, we could have the funding needed for collaborative work. With a 4-percent increase, we could hire approximately 70 highly qualified individuals who are willing to put children first. If you are as deeply committed to the success of every child as I am, you will do whats right and provide trusted professionals with the time necessary to ensure student success. School Board Chairwoman Donna Martin said that the board is limited to what it could say regarding the matter because it is currently bargaining with NTA. She did note that planning is a priority for the board. Superintendent Dr. Kathy Burns said that she also realizes how important the issue is for teachers. Im not that far removed from a classroom, and I try to be in one every day that school is in session, Burns said. I have a chart on my wall, and I have my priorities for the summer. Thats at the top of that list. I understand how important planning is. Burns said requirements for increased security in schools is affecting the districts budget and put the price tag for giving teachers a daily planning period at $3 million. She differed with Glackin as to where Nassau County ranks among Florida school districts in the rate of pay. We are in the midst of our budget process, Burns said. We are keenly aware of this as we are planning this budget. We are preparing the budget, looking at what we can do for planning periods. Its not something weve forgotten about. Youll hear more about it in the days ahead in the budget process. Its a priority in the district.rfendangers the people who are there and natural inhabitants of the beach. Lacking careful allocation of resources, vehicular access to the beach could be lost entirely, because there will be no beach there to use. At the June 25 meeting, BOCC Chairman Pat Edwards said the new county ordinance will not change laws governing driving on the beach, which were passed as SB 1577 in 1992, and are in effect in Nassau County. A copy of the law regarding beach driving in the county can be found at http://bit.ly/2KqpaEd. Commissioner Justin Taylor said he had spoken to state Sen. Aaron Bean and state Rep. Cord Byrd, both of whom voted to pass HB 631. A lot of this is a difference of interpretation, Taylor said. Our interpretation of it leads us to create and recognize the right of customary use. I dont believe it was our legislators intent to keep people off the beach. We are doing what we feel like we need to do. Were all beach goers. We tried to get ahead of what we thought was a serious threat and an issue. Commissioner Danny Leeper said the issue is an example of a disconnect between state and local governments. Sometimes Tallahassee doesnt quite understand the impact on what it has on the local level, Leeper said, speaking to the public. All of you made a difference, and it helped us to preserve customary use. We were presented this challenge by Tallahassee. We rose to the challenge. We had a small time frame to work in. I think you can tell tonight that it is a priority to make sure we protect public access to our beach. We will continue to do so, with your help. Edwards said common sense, and common courtesy, are the keys to enabling everyone to enjoy Nassau County beaches. As a user of the beach, I think all of us could listen to each of these speakers and realize that there are probably things we could do differently and change on our beach, Edwards said. Each of us should see something, say something, help be part of the reason the beach can stay open and be used by everyone. Be cognizant of each other. Treat each other with respect. Treat the beach with respect. I think most of our problems would go away. The golden rule is a wonderful thing, and it works on the beach, also. I would hope everyone, regardless of which side of this issue, at the end of the day we would live our life a little closer to the golden rule, and a lot of this would go away.rf rf rfntbfnt rfntbfrrrfrrn tfrfrbfr fffrnn*The Annual Percentage Yield (APY) of 2.25% APY is available for 13-month (Certicates of Deposit) CDs.

There will be seven duplex cottages, each with two 18-by20-foot studio suites, and five 20-by-20-foot single cottages with one-bedroom suites. All of the suites will include kitchenettes with a refrigerator, micro wave, coffee pot, induction cook top, and toaster oven, as well as dishes and silverware. The Sea Cottages of Amelia will be located about 200 yards from the ocean. It is near the recently announced development of a 103-room Home2 Suites by Hilton Hotel, the construction of which has been suspended by a stop work order from Nassau County due to a tree removal issue. Sea Cottages will be for peo ple who want more than a typical hotel room. They are like over sized hotel studio suites, said Philip Griffin, Amelia Coastal Realty broker and principal, who is a partner in the development. The other partners are Griffins wife, Janet, and Glenn Bewan and his wife, Emily. Bewan originally bought the one-acre site through Griffin two years ago with plans to turn the house located there into a busi ness shop for his artist wife. Emily Bewan is an artist who also buys and sells collectables and clothing. Her art will be hung in the suites. Bewan said the plans for his wifes store turned sour when the city informed him of all the changes he would have to make to the 1950s-era house and former day care nursery to make it compliant with code and ADA requirements. It was just cheaper to tear it down and start anew, he added. That is when Griffin reentered the picture with the idea for the Sea Cottages development, which he said has been a dream of mine for 15 years. He originally planned the concept for another site on the island, but he lost out on getting that site. Then the opportunity to work with the Bewans surfaced. The plan has always been to make the development ecofriendly. We didnt want to tear down any of the trees, and only removed one of the mature oaks that had been struck by lightning and was hollow in the middle, Bewan said. We recycled every thing that we could, he added, referring to the old house, which had been built using recycled railroad materials, some of it imprinted with the railroads name. We are reusing a lot of it, including for bed headboards. Griffin explained that the city originally wanted all the park ing at the rear of the property, but that would have required removing mature oak trees. A compromise was worked out that pushed the cottages to the rear of the property to protect the trees, but it resulted in having to reduce the number of cottages from the original plan. The front of the property along Sadler Road will have the building containing a lobby and a laundry, with all the parking immediately behind it. In line with being ecofriendly, the parking lot will be crushed rock, which is consid ered more pervious than sand, Bewan said. Everything the buildings and walkways will be raised above the ground, Bewan explained. The buildings will all be raised up two to three feet on piers, and the raised paths will weave around the trees through the middle of the property and connect to the front porch of each cottage. The original design had storm water runoff from each cot tage dispersed directly into the sand through perforated pipes, Griffin explained, but that was not acceptable to the watershed management people. We had to capture the water from every roof and put in an underground chamber for slow dispersement into the ground ... at $60,000 in extra costs. That work is under way. Griffin and Bewan said they hope to have Sea Cottages com pleted and open for business in November. They presently are waiting for the city to issue build ing permits. The construction of the project is being handled by Parker Contracting, Inc. of Fernandina Beach. Griffin explained that con struction should go quickly because steel-formed kits of each cottage are presently being manufactured in a warehouse in Valdosta, Georgia. They will go up like an Erector Set. ... Basically screw together the parts. The barreltype roofs are made of stoneencrusted metal, but look like clay tiles, Bewan added. Each unit will have a deck for sitting or possibly eating outside and will have large, flat-screen smart TVs equipped with apps for easy viewing or games. Sea Cottages will provide onsite laundry and vending machines. Kayaks, bikes, and scooters will be available for rent. The property is buffered on the east by wetlands. There is an existing path at the back of the property that leads to a beach access. The cottages will be rented on daily, weekly or monthly basis, but our goal would be to mainly rent them weekly, Griffin said. The website lists the rental rates for the studio suites as being from $99 daily and from $525 weekly. The one-bedroom units are listed from $129 nightly and from $775 weekly.

Once implemented, said outgoing County Manager Shanea Jones, everything on the Capital Improvement Project List would be fully funded for the first time. What would such an increase in the millage rate mean for the average taxpayer? During a recent budget discussion, Stankiewicz calculated it would result in an additional $285 per year or $23.75 a month based on a house with a taxable value of $150,000. For a home value of $350,000, the increase would result in an additional $665 and for a $1 million home, approximately $1,900 more per year, according to Stankiewicz, but it depends on where a property is located. The reason for the difference is related to what millage rate is applicable to each parcel, Stankiewicz explained. A parcel located in the unincorporated areas of the county pays the county-wide millage (0.6480 increase), the county transportation millage (0.2504 increase) and the municipal service millage (1.0020 increase). A house located in the incorporated area of the city of Fernandina Beach, town of Hilliard or town of Callahan (does) not pay the Municipal Service Millage but rather (pays) their respective city or town. The countys Municipal Service Fund pays for services such as planning, animal control, fire control, code enforcement, and a portion of law enforcement in the unincorporated areas. Generally speaking, if a parcel is located in (Fernandina Beach), Hilliard or Callahan they provide these services, not the county. The latest discussions included mention of property values being the highest in history, but a rise in the amount many homeowners can deduct via Homestead Exemption could offset much of the additional revenues the county takes in as a result higher property values. Stankiewicz, Jones and Mike Mullin, county attorney and soon-to-be-acting county manager, are all in agreement that additional planning is needed and that a good budget not just a balanced budget is in the best interest of the county. What is a good budget? According to Stankiewicz, it contains elements of financial planning, addresses immediate needs while laying a foundation for future needs and maximizes assets and resources to enhance levels of service. If county commissioners decide to increase taxes on property, it will be voted on in July.Continued from 1A SOURCE: NASSAU COUNTY OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGETOne proposed solution to the financial shortfall that the Nassau County Board of County Commissioners is facing in 2018-19 is an increase in the millage rate, which would raise property taxes. This chart depicts how it would breakdown for a property in unincorporated Nassau County. board is formed. Also at the June 19 meeting, the City Commission passed on first reading an ordinance that creates a beach rangers program, which provides Fernandina Beach officers to help patrol the citys beaches during the summer months. The officers, which can include police, code enforcement, police service aides and trained volunteers, will issue warnings and citations for offenses ranging from alcohol violations to having dogs off leash on the beach. The ordinance called for a verbal warning and $75 citation for some violations. However, commissioners said the fine was not stiff enough, and, after some discussion, changed it to $150. It also changed the area in which fishing is prohibited to 300 yards north and south of ocean rescue towers. The ordinance passed on its first reading. The commission also discussed accessory dwellings, which are apartments built into or attached to a single family home. Commissioner Chip Ross said it is currently against the law to rent an accessory dwelling unit in the city, but that they could be part of the solution to the lack of affordable housing. Commissioners had some objections about changing the law, including parking and density. Commissioners agreed to ask the Planning Advisory Board to look into the matter. The commission also approved, on second reading, a contract for garbage collection services with Advanced Disposal Services. The new contract will take effect Jan. 14, 2019. In commissioner comments, Ross thanked the city for making parking on Broome Street one-way. He said he lives in the neighborhood, and parking on both sides of the street causes congestion that makes driving difficult. In other business, the city commissioners: Passed on second reading an ordinance creating a comprehensive land conservation and preservation program; Passed on second reading an ordinance that gives the city an affirmative defense of customary use of beaches, which can be used to defend a challenge by property owners regarding use of beaches in the city limits; Heard a presentation from Mark Bennett, chairman of the Planning Advisory Board, about the work done by that body; Passed a resolution that made amendments to the income requirements for sewer and refuse exemption fees and added stormwater exemption fees; Accepted voluntary annexation agreements for properties on Amelia Road and Clinch Drive; Passed on first reading amendments to an ordinance governing newspaper racks in the city; Appointed Phillip Jones and Helen Hirsch to the Golf Course Advisory Board; Appointed Prudence Hostetter and Thomas Piscitello to the Airport Advisory Commission; and Approved the purchase of $62,000 of equipment for the golf course from Beard Equipment.

rf The amount of raw, undeveloped land in Fernandina Beach is ever decreasing in the wake of new construction of homes and businesses, and the City Commission is now committing itself to the creation of a con servation and land management program and trust fund in order to ensure at least some of the citys remaining green spaces are protected. The code establishes the Fernandina Beach Land Conservation Trust Fund to be used for acquiring and maintaining conservation and preserva tion lands. Money can come into the program from grants or loans, from the city or from donations. The fund will begin with approximately $2.1 million in the Parks & Recreation Departments impact fees account at the end of the citys fiscal year, Sept. 30, according to city Comptroller Patti Clifford. Added to that amount will be $115,000 that the city received as part of a deal worked out last year between a developer, the Nassau County School Board and the city in which the developer donated $115,000 to the city when it vacated a right-of-way on Gum Street where a housing development will be built. One Fernandina Beach resi dent, Tayve Neese, said at the commissions June 19 meeting that she saw the dramatic loss of green space when she left Fernandina Beach and returned. I lived here. I raised two girls here, Neese said. We had to leave the island for about five years. I moved back and was shocked about how much devel opment had occurred on lands that have extreme environmen tal weight for our community. I think this will be a huge benefit for our community, for making sure that the island is the island we all love. The city manager will man age the program, which will be administered through city staff. Among the objectives and purposes outlined in the code creating the program is the the acquisition, conservation, pres -ntbttnttervation, restoration and main tenance of natural lands, marine forests, upland and wetland com munities, environmentally sensi tive lands and lands that have been altered but are capable of being restored. The law will also allow the city to preserve lands that may not qualify as environmentally sensitive, but are otherwise worthy of restoration and pres ervation for the health, safety and welfare of the citizenry. The criteria for property to be acquired includes land with the most rare, unique and endan gered habitats found in the city, land which protects the most water resource values and land containing the most biological value, including biodiversity, listed species habitat, connec tivity, restoration potential and ecological quality. Landowners and other mem bers of the public can nominate properties for acquisition by submitting an application to City Manager Dale Martin. A copy of the ordinance passed by the City Commission can be found here: http://bit. ly/2KcAh7q. The program will have two lists of properties a list of prop erties targeted for protection and an active acquisition list. The target list will contain lands with the highest natural resource values, but generally not specific parcels of land. The active acquisition list will consist of sites that have been selected from the target areas as well as proposals submitted by the public, and that have received positive responses from the property owners. Once approved by the commission, the city will actively pursue the purchase of those properties. Once land is purchased, a management plan for it must be implemented by the city within 60 days. Although Vice Mayor Len Kreger was not present at the meeting to vote on the second reading and passage of the ordi nance, he spoke at the May 15 meeting during the ordinances first reading. This is an interesting city, Kreger said. We have approximately 24 percent of our land in recreation which is mostly open space. We have 17 percent in conservation now and we have 19 percent in industrial (use), which, in many cases, is actually open space land. So, we are prob ably sitting on about 60 percent open space. Were doing well. This (program) is well-intended. Theres not a lot of land we can buy. We need to buy it. We need to get it done. Margaret Kirkland addressed the City Commission regarding funding. Speaking on behalf of the Amelia Tree Conservancy, she said having the program in place will make ATC, and the city, more attractive to donors and other funding sources. I think it gives us, not only trees that might be lost, but also I think it gives us a lot of cred ibility, Kirkland said. It shows what the will of the population of Amelia Island is, and thats important when we apply for grants. We really need that cred ibility. Its also important that we have that credibility to get dona tions to the fund or donations of property. I want to thank you for doing this.rf JULIA ROBERTS/NEWS-LEADERLocal resident Tayve Neese tells Fernandina Beach city commissioners that she is glad the city is making sure the island will be the island we all love by purchasing land to protect it from development, and supports their land conservation effort.

I say whether it affects because some lawmakers and local legal minds cling to the naive belief that the legislation merely clarifies access and use and has nothing to do with restriction and prohibition. These are the same people who have frequent-user passes to Disneys Fantasyland and whove taken up permanent residence on the island of delusional thinking. But leaving Fantasyland on an overcrowded Interstate 4, incumbent legislators who supported 631 (hereafter known as ers) have to be wondering how their support for such an outrageous piece of legislation will affect their political futures. Really? Forget the wondering and just check out the social media response to state Rep. Cord Byrds announcement that hes just qualified for re-election. Ooooooooo! Local decision-makers city and county commissioners have to be in a where do we go from here thinking mode too. Here are a few things they, and we, have to consider questions that need to be answered as we move forward, post-HB 631: Question: If the courts decision holds and the taxpayer-created dry sand above the mean high water mark belongs to the beachside property owner, what does that mean for future beach renourishment projects, given that it is illegal to use public funds to renourish private property? The city has a 50-year renourishment and maintenance agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. That agreement obligates taxpayers at the federal (roughly 80 percent of the project costs), state, county, and city levels. If the USACE simply pumps beach-quality sand onto private property, then we have a problem thats illegal. What if the Corps pumps sand onto the area below the mean high water mark and it migrates westward, ostensibly creating more private property for the homeowners by moving the mean high water mark to the east? If the created property is comprised of co-mingled sand public and private who owns it? A lawyers dream! Another question: The city also has an agreement with the Navy, a Memorandum of Understanding requiring them to put beach-quality sand on city beaches each time they dredge the St. Marys inlet channel. The channel has to be kept deep enough to accommodate Kings Bay submarines. The sand placed on the citys north end has been transformational. That sand migrates too. Some goes southward with the tide and much of it winds up at the islands center both below and above the mean high water mark. Given the ownership question, are we going to keep the Memorandum of Understanding? I certainly hope so. Yet another question: Is the countys sand tax now moot? The tax on almost all properties on Amelia Island (those in the South Amelia Island Shore Stabilization Municipal Service Benefit Unit are one exception) is meant to pay for renourishment projects, but if the future of these projects is in doubt, what about the tax? Most of you know that the part of HB 631 I find most despicable is the requirement that we have to prove our historical and continuous recreational use of the dry sand beach. That obligation defies all logic and reason. Having to sign an affidavit and swear that Ive used the beach continuously over the last 71 years is offensive to me. Hypothetical: The year is 1870 and the federal government declares a portion of the Great Plains off limits to buffalo hunting. The Sioux, whove hunted buffalo there for generations, want to continue that tradition, but the courts say no. Congress passes a bill that requires every Sioux who wants to continue hunting the area to sign a piece of paper, an affidavit, swearing that they have always hunted buffalo on the Great Plains. The Sioux refuse to sign saying that their signature would acknowledge the governments control over their traditional hunting grounds. I guess one of them, one of the bold ones, might even point out Jeffersons use of one of our most celebrated and cherished concepts when he wrote the Declaration of Independence inalienable rights. The Sioux had an inalienable right even though they werent U.S. citizens to continue hunting buffalo on the Great Plains. I believe that. And we have an inalienable right to use our beach, just like we have for generations. I believe that, too.This is a tough time being a Republican. We have a presi dent that I dont particularly like but is doing a lot of things for the country I like. At least now Democrats understand the depth of dislike we had for the Obamas. Democrats wonder how President Trump got elected. There is one person to blame. Barack Obama. President Obama divided this country so much along racial and economic lines that it was inevitable Mr. Trump would win. He is going to win another term. This is mostly because the Democrats still dont get it. It would be wonderful for the Republicans if Oprah ran. I wonder if any reporter would have the nerve to ask her why 2016 was the year for a woman president, but 2008 wasnt, when she backed Obama and threw Hillary under the bus. CNN is like a toddler in a grocery store throwing a fit because he didnt get his way. Sorry CNN, Hillary is not presi dent and never will be. Get over it. Also remember how wrong the polls were in 2016. There is not going to be a Democratic surge in 2018 as much as CBS, NBC and CNN want you to believe it. Patrick McKenzie Fernandina BeachrI have voted in every national election since Harry Truman was elected as President in 1948. Up until 2016, without exception, I respected the man elected to be leader of this country and the free world. A couple of those presidents lost my respect during their terms in office. Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton come to mind. Yet despite disagreement with some of their policies and decisions, the other presidents of this country retained my respect. But Donald Trump is, and was, a man unworthy of respect in every possible way. He lies constantly, displays ignorance and incompetency, denigrates any person who does not toady to him, and disregards every safeguard of American democ racy. The latest outrage of the Trump Administration is zero tolerance, of some immigrants crossing the border, com pletely disregarding that many are refugees seeking asylum in America. The establishment of concentration camps to hold these immigrants is a stark reminder of Hitlers Holocaust for those of us old enough to remember. My prayer is that this country will shake off the damage that Donald Trump does to our economy, our liberties, and our status as leader of the free world.

(www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2018/05/29/heres-what-happening-immigrant-children-u-s-border/650755002) As for the cartoon, you may recall some news sources as showing a picture of two young women in a cage and they too, blamed President Trump. In very short time the truth was stated the picture was in fact taken in 2014, also during the Obama administration. The author also has stated: Once upon a time in America, we stood up and fought against actions like these. Really, where was the media in reporting all these atrocities during the eight years of Obamas leadership? Now the same media tries to act as though these atrocities didnt happen until Trump was president and sadly, many people believe this FAKE NEWS! By the way, note that in February of 2009, there was a bill titled: Keeping Families Together Act of 2009. You may recall, in 2009 the Democrats held the majorities in both the House and Senate as well as President Obama was in office, and he promised to reform immigration in his first year in office. Nine years later, the Democrats blame Trump and Sessions. Why didnt the Democrats pass this bill when they held the majority? The writers of our Constitution knew the importance of an immigration policy that would be a responsibility of Congress as of 1808 (Article I sec. 9). Throughout the years, Congress has made changes to the law and the last major change was done in 1986 and was called the Immigration Reform and Control Act. Passed by both bodies of Congress and signed into law by then President Reagan. At the time of its passage, an estimated 4 million illegal immigrants would apply for legal status. Today we have estimates from 12 to 18 million illegal immigrants within the USA. Why so many illegal immigrants today? The letter writer stated: I dont think we can argue with the need to protect our borders. Fact is, since 1986, for the most part, we failed to do just that! Lets take a look at crime associated with immigration. According to Wikipedia, the notorious MS-13 gang was founded in the East L.A. Barrios in the 1980s. The Mexican gangs reigned in the local underworld. In 2012, during the Obama administration, the U.S. Treasury Department labeled MS-13 as a trans-national criminal organization. The gangs reach now extends from Central American countries through Mexico and into the USA and Canada. The U.S. Southern Command states there are as many as 70,000 members in the Northern Triangle. In California, according to the California government website, 39.9 percent of all felonies and misdemeanor arrests in California are Hispanic people. In comparison, 37.4 percent of felonies and misdemeanor arrests are white people. Yet white people (according to the 2015 Census Bureau estimate) make up 72.9 percent of the population. Of course, not all illegals are criminals, but statistics do not paint a good picture! I find it unfair to compare the legal immigration of the first generation immigrants the author worked with: Italians, Polish, and Germans. They came here legally and went through the government system in place at the time. Like the letter writer I respond to, I too, am old enough to remember when we were so different, but that was once upon a time. Finally, something we can agree on! What ever happened to reporters investigating and reporting facts and not political motivated ideological attacks? Whatever happened to civility and honest debate? Who said: If they bring a knife to the fight we bring a gun. Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. Barack Obama, June 13, 2008. During the most recent presidential election, many political rallies were disrupted and in some cases turned violent. These peoples party identity is no secret and I expect the 2020 campaign to be even worse. I may only wish for truth and factual reporting. Civility and respect of all people, and I wish those folks who appear to care so much about illegals would have at least equal compassion for our veterans and homeless Americans. I also wish the Democratic Party would see fit to include God in their 2020 platform, unlike their denial of God at their 2012 convention. The Democratic Party of today is much different than the old Democratic Party. I pray most people come to recognize such change and act accordingly.b K btD trY fftrnrrrt Raise your hand if you have no relatives who immigrated to this country to gain religious freedom, to escape tyranny, to literally save their lives, or who came to our shores with the hope of a better life for them selves and their families. But wait, you say, Mine were different than these people. And that was a different time! Really? Were they Irish? Fleeing from famine and starvation, these poor and disease-ridden folks according to newspapers of the times threaten to take away jobs from the Americans and strain welfare budgets, practice an alien religion, pledge allegiance to a foreign leader, and will bring crime with them. Yes, at one time America feared and despised the Irish! Italian? In the late 1800s, it was written of Italian immigrants: Those sneaking and cowardly Sicilians, the descendants of bandits and assassins, who have transported to this country the lawless passions, the cut-throat practices, and the oath-bound societies of their native country, are a pest without mitigation. Our own rattlesnakes are as good citizens as they are. Read your history. Italians were lynched in this country! Polish? German? Jewish? Chinese? Japanese? Indian? Pakistani? Go to Google and type in (your forebears nationalities) American Experience. Our country, unfortunately, has always had fear mongers willing to promote and perpetuate a legacy of lies, discrimination, and stereotyping designed to further their own agendas. And weve made a deal with a devil to hear, or see, no evil in return for false promises and lowered taxes for the ultra-wealthy (with trillions of dollars of debt passed on to our children) or the opportunity to make the already more-than-rich business owners even richer. Heres a short list of what you and your children are giving up. It is worth it? Federal funding for science is being cut back. Federal agencies are being directed to ignore science-based evidence. The EPA is a cruel joke. Rules or funding for programs protecting us against harmful water and air pollutants such as car emissions are being emasculated. Threatened species of animals are losing their protections. Weather disasters are increasing, seas are rising (yes the seas and waters surrounding Amelia Island) yet FEMA does not seem to care. Offshore drilling is being allowed to expand, risking Floridas pristine beaches. Americans are continually massacred by bullets shot from AR-15/AK-47s and from pistols that can be purchased by those not subject to a universal background check. Workers and basic human rights are being rolled back. The internet will be more expensive. Consumer protections are being weakened. Big banks are again being allowed to do some of the same things that triggered the great recession and economic collapse. Health care and food for the most needy is being stripped away. These are not right or left Republican or Democrat issues. We can live our American dream under either partys normal push and pull. But whats happening now is very different. Its our moral compass thats deviating and its pointing south! We are at a crossroads. Wake up! Its ALL of us who are in this together! What harms your neighbor harms you. We cannot allow our highest elected officials to deliberately and consciously misinform, distort, misrepresent, and mislead us, or to turn us against each other. We need to decide who and what we want to be as individuals and as a country and do what needs to be done to restore integrity, character, decency, and compassion.b S tL m fA m I t NL 6 col.

rPEOPLE, PLACES, THINGS TO DO 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.

That is the perfect phrase to describe the half-acre oasis that Ann and Jim Kemp have created at Nassau Lakes in Yulee. Married for some 31 years, the couple moved to Nassau County in 2007 after Ann worked for the Social Security Administration and Jim worked for Floridas Agency for Health Care Administration. Their careers, however, dont come anywhere close to defining who they are and what they do. Jim is also a professor of Asian studies, having developed a curiosity about the culture after serving in Vietnam. Ann is an award-winning photographer whose work can be found in galleries and boutiques in Fernandina Beach. They chose their home in Nassau Lakes for the sheer size of the property, as one of the passions they share is a love of gardening. They started sowing the seeds of this shared passion just one week after moving into their Yulee home. It began very modestly, with day lilies and border grass, but evolved into a showcase of many species, including fruits and vegetables. Jim wanted to grow citrus, and the first tree they planted sprouted tangerines. They later added lemons, limes, and blood oranges. After that came other fruits, like blueberries, raspberries, and muscadine grapes. They also have a fenced-in area dedicated to a winter garden for cultivating a bounty of vegetables including tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, kale, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts. Jim is a graduate of both the Master Gardening and Naturalist programs offered through the University of Florida Extension Service in Nassau County. When asked what the vision was when they began planting, Jim replied immediately: They wanted to attract pollinators bees, wasps, and butterflies. We only choose plant varieties that are natural to Florida, Jim said. That means perennials for the most part, adds Ann. They both say that large nurseries are best for buying plants. In addition to their favorite establishment back in Tallahassee, they credit Liberty Landscaping Supply and Ace Hardware on South Eighth Street as major contributors to their beautiful yard. Jim says his secret weapon (and he responded in the affirmative when asked if it was OK to divulge his secret) is to stand and watch where the bees and butterflies are going. He added, There are a lot of gorgeous flowers around, but not all attract pollinators. The Kemps use no pesticides or herbicides and are proud that everything is cultivated and grown au naturel. They are ever-mindful of creating a healthy under-environment, as they call it, traveling with a trailer in-tow to pick up random leaf piles, fertilizer left behind by cows and horses and just about anything else that might help their garden grow. Ever the professor, Jim explains the issue: Nutrients in the sandy soil of Nassau County get washed away with every heavy rain and so we need to add nutrients. There is another fenced off area that serves as a compost pile. Ann says that she cant quite find the right word or words to describe their home and garden, but considers their property half farm, half sanctuary. In addition to cultivating their fruits and vegetables, there are a number of animals that have come to call their house and yard home. Currently in residence is a one-and-a-half-legged goose they call Peggerty and her boyfriend, Thomas. As they tell it, Thomas will run to defend his mate should any member of a gaggle of geese try to steal her food or bully her in any way. There are also ducks, a handful of squirrels, egrets, and a lake full of turtles that come bobbing for food the minute Jim takes a rstand on the dock. Ann says the yard Serves as a great inspiration and subject for my photography. And the Kemps are generous with their harvests and their time. Last spring they invited over 30 children and their families from the Wild Amelia Junior Naturalist program to their yard to explore. Many of the youngsters had never seen a yard quite so large. Robyn Nemes, who leads the Junior Naturalist program, spoke of what a great experience it was. Ann and Jim Kemp opened their home, their garden, and their hearts to these children, Nemes said. She explained that the field trip was undertaken as part of the Butterflies and Compassion class the students took earlier in the year: It was a phenomenal learning experience for the children present as well as their families, and has led to the creation of butterfly garden areas in some of their own yards.

Most interactions consist of seeing alligators at a distance. However, if you have a concern about a specific alligator, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission urges you to call its toll-free Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR (392-4286). The FWC places the highest priority on public safety, said Eric Sutton, FWCs executive director. When someone calls our Nuisance Alligator Hotline to report an alligator they believe poses a threat, we dispatch a contracted trappers to resolve the situation. Alligators inhabit all 67 counties in Florida and can be found anywhere there is standing water. Reduce the chances of conflicts with alligators by swimming only in designated swimming areas during daylight hours. Keep pets on a leash and away from the water. Because alligators control their body temperature by basking in the sun, they may be easily observed. However, the FWC urges people to keep their distance. Never feed alligators, it is dangerous and illegal. The FWC also works to keep the public informed by providing advice about living with alligators at http://bit.ly/2yH9ivz and MyFWC.com/Alligator.

Bucko planned an expedition for us on one recent morning: We would get up early on a Saturday and head south on Heckscher Drive to watch the cooling towers implode at the Jacksonville Electric Authoritys coal-powered generating plant. Why not? Well, we werent the only ones with this idea. By 7:45 a.m., cars were parked all along the road and people were lined up on the high bridges and anywhere where they could see the towers in the distance. We found our own spot and crossed the road to join the other spectators to view the happenings across the marsh. It was due to happen at 8 a.m. We only had 15 minutes to wait, but me being me, I could not just stand there waiting. I had to do something. I aimed my camera at the roseate spoonbills feeding at low tide among the oyster shells. I pointed them out to other bystanders, one of whom thought they were flamingos, but I explained a bit further. Nearby, a great egret was also fishing for breakfast in the muddy tide pools, a stark white bird that stood out on the dark muddy background. I admired the rosy eastern horizon where the sun had just risen. A red crab trap was glowing above the mud. Fiddler crabs scurried in the weeds and sea ox-eye daisies in front of me, and I tried unsuccessfully to photograph them too. And then, it was over. By the time I aimed my camera at the twin towers, all I captured was a billowing cloud of debris followed immediately by a loud boom that echoed around us. Bucko managed to get a video of the momentary happening, and Ive seen it since on television. Still, being there was its own form of excitement even if I didnt really see anything. We were now close to our spot, a place along Heritage River Road where we like to sit in our car and watch the St. Johns River happenings. So with hot coffees still in hand, we headed there next. As usual, our trip was quickly rewarded. There were only two spoonbills across the road when we watched the towers, but here there were scores of them in a large flock near the road. Another flock of spoonbills was off in the distance. A mixed group of egrets, herons, white ibis, and wood storks fished in a nearby channel created by the incoming tide. I happily photographed birds until we tired of this activity and continued on to the boat ramp at the end of the road. The cats were out in full force that morning. Lots of feral cats live here, fed by some kind soul who sets out cat food in plastic pans and hopefully has had them neutered. Sometimes we dont see the cats they are off somewhere in the brush but at feeding time a dozen or more cats wait at the gate for their caretaker, someone we have not yet encountered. That morning we only saw one cat perched in an information kiosk, another fun shot. On the way back down Heritage River Road, Bucko spotted another of our old favorites. A black-crowned night heron was perched in a tangle of branches, vying for space with a nearby egret. We havent seen this bird in a couple years, ever since the upland was cleared of trees and the area returned to a salt march in a mitigation project. This might not be the same bird that used to haunt the now-gone stream and wooded banks, but still, to us, it was like seeing a long lost friend once again. On the way back to our house we stopped at Peters Point Beach Front Park. I was compelled to show Bucko the signs that have so enraged me in front of Carlton Dunes No trespassing or camping. Private property extends to mean high water mark seaward of this sign and he became outraged too. But we didnt want to dwell on the negatives on this fine Saturday morning. All and all, it was an interesting adventure, fun to join a group of spectators with the same idea, unusual to visit our spot at a different time of day, and great, as always, to see the spectacle of water birds in the marsh. Heres hoping these natural features and the beaches will always be available to us, but Im beginning to have my doubts. Pat Foster-Turley is a zoologist on Amelia Island.

oo T rf Nw ntbblot Katie Freeman refuses to let a genetic disorder sideline her. The 18-year-old Fernandina Beach High School student competes in multiple sports with Nassau County Special Olympics. The great thing about Katie is that she is an excellent example for new athletes to look up to, said Matt Bellar, Nassau County director. She is always going to give 100 percent in every aspect of the sport that she is participating in. There is never any challenge too big for Katie. It could be a giant wave or a tough split in bowling; she is going to conquer it. Her positive attitude is infectious to everyone around her. Born with neurofibromatosis type 1, Freeman had to find her athletic niche. It causes learning disabilities, said her mother, Toni. She actually has a brain tumor. She has an optic glioma (a tumor that develops in the cells surrounding the optic nerve), and she has tumors down her spine. She has rods in the spine, and she still does all her sports. Freeman wanted to play sports, so she started with baseball. She did that for two years, and shed had enough of that, her mother said. She didnt have the strength to hit, so they told her to bunt. Her ball pretty much fell right at her feet. They would tag her out or throw her out, but she never got upset. She was like, Mom, did you see me? I hit it. Most kids are crying at the age. She didnt care. She was just so excited that she hit it. Freeman moved on to swim competitively for the McArthur Family YMCA. She didnt so well when she first started, her mother said. It kind of looked like she was drowning. Her first meet, Freeman was struggling. Her coach jumped in to swim next to her, encouraging her to make it just to the wall. Her coach looks up and me and says, Im not going to make her go back. She can get out. But, Freeman was determined. She turned around and started to swim back, her mother said. It was so cool. All the other kids had already finished, but Katie was like, Im doing this. She turns around and starts swimming, and the coach is swimming with her. It was one of those moments when everyone was cheering her name. She gets out of the pool and it doesnt even phase her that everyone is waiting for her. She runs up to me and says, Mom, I finished. After one season with the Y, Freemans mother was approached by Special Olympics coaches. It was such a blessing for her, her mother said. In the Y swim, even though she was doing it, she was coming in in not very good times. With the Special Olympics, it was athletes with her caliber. And her confidence just went through the roof. They were just so awesome. Shes been swimming four seasons and joined the surfing team three years ago. The first season, she stayed on her hands and knees, her mother said. But, last year when we went to area, she just pops up on the board like shed been doing it her whole life. Shes posing on the board and everything. It was so weird. Where did this come from? She just started doing it. Freeman qualified for state, but the competition was canceled because of Hurricane Irma. Freeman has advanced to level 2 and has the potential to be a level 3 surfer for Special Olympics, her mother said. She also competes in basketball, bowling and track and field.

Her attendance at practice and competition is punctual and rarely does she miss a practice. Katie is a joy to have on the team with her competitiveness and humor. She displays all the exemplary attributes of a Special Olympic athlete. Freeman competes nearly year-round. She loves it and, when theres not a sport, shes like, When does this start and when does that start? her mother said. Athleticism is a family affair for Freeman, who served as the manager last season for the FBHS girls basketball team. Freemans sisters, Zada Freeman and Erica Foote, were Lady Pirates, and Freeman had a front-row seat to watch the team pile up wins en route to the Final Four. I asked Zada to ask the coach if I could be the manager and help the team, Freeman said. Head Coach Jacob Nantz was immediately on board. One of the biggest heroes I have in my life is my brother, Tony, who is handicapped by being deaf since he was born, Nantz said. My wife, Cindy, and daughter, Karri, have been coaches for Special Olympics, and my daughter was going to college to be a special needs teacher as well. Because my family and I have always had a heart and desire to help people with special needs and disabilities, when I found out Katie had an interest in being part of our team as a manager, I was excited and without hesitation I said yes and brought her on board. She has been a real blessing to our team. Katie is such a wonderful kid and brings her excitement and enthusiasm to every game and helps our team out a lot as manager. Freeman has her duties. I have to collect the practice balls and I give them water when they need it, she said. And I cheer for them. Her efforts didnt go unnoticed by the team. Anna (Arato) told me I was the best manager ever, Freeman said. The girls made me feel included, like I was really part of a real school team.

r If you would like to improve your fishing and boating skills, join a fishing club. By joining a local club, you will have the opportunity to meet fishermen who will share their fishing knowledge and, in many cases, partner up and go fishing with you.The Nassau Sport Fishing Association, a local fishing club based out of Ten Acres, promotes good fishing and gives local fishermen the opportunity to pair up with other fishermen. The popular club holds several events during the year, including the annual Fernandina Beach Fishing Rodeo, which will be held Aug. 3-4. Throughout the year, expert fishermen are on hand giving various fishing instructions on a variety of local fishing opportunities including surf, offshore and backwater fishing. And, the covered dish dinners are extremely popular. Some members bring dishes while others grill out chicken and other delicious entrees. The NSFA will hold its annual all-American cookout today. Black angus hamburgers, all-beef hot dogs and grilled chicken sandwiches will be served. The event will be held at the Ten Acres shelter house beginning at 6:15 p.m. Bring your own beverages. National Marine Fisheries Service law enforcement officer Benjamin Boots will also be on hand at 6:15 p.m. to answer any questions members and guests may have regarding the federal fishery laws and regulations pertaining to the South Atlantic. Of special local interest are kingfish, snapper and grouper. For information on the NSFA, visit www. nsfafish.net. The International Game & Fish Association keeps records of fresh and saltwater gamefish with fly and standard rod and reel. There are also records kept for lady and junior angler divisions as well and for all species of gamefish. Former Amelia Island residents Gary and Sherrell Carter developed Las Ventanas Del Mar in Costa Rica. He is the chairman of IGFA and holds several IGFA world records. She is also a world-class angler and presently holds the four-pound line class record for dolphin by landing a 44.9-pound dolphin on her ultra-thin twopound fishing line. By becoming a member, you will receive the International Angler magazine and certainly become a better angler. I particularly enjoyed reading the IGFA article on Unbreakable Records written by Mike Rivkin. Fernandina Beachs Lynn Joyners IGFA world-record goliath grouper was included. It was caught right off the city docks and weighed 680 pounds. Also included was Alfred Glassell Jr.s record 1,560-pound black marlin, which more than likely will never be topped. Visit www.igfa.org and become a better fisherman. The Coastal Conservation Association is an excellent organization to join; it promotes good conservation. The CCA is holding its annual Star Tournament. A lucky fishermen who catches a tagged redfish may win a brand-new truck or boat. Current information is available at West Marine or by visiting www.ccaflstar.com. You can become a better fisherman by joining a local fishing club or any of the organizations mentioned. Not only do they promote fish conservation, but they can also make your day on the water a much better experience.

Nw r frntb CbrwrfS pllb rf C hasing balls. Many of us do it. It could be a tennis ball, golf ball, football or soccer ball. Sometimes when you step back and look at some of the things we do and how we spend our time, you have to really wonder about human intelligence. The Big Guy and I each have our own sport that involves balls his small white dimpled ones and my yellow fuzzy ones. We debate the merits of our chosen sports. The Big Guy maintains that golf is a thinking mans game that takes skill and science to win. I argue it just takes too much darn time to complete a round of golf. Tennis is efficient and provides a good work out. Riding a golf cart? Come on. Clearly tennis is the better choice for sporting hours. The Big Guy and his cronies will respond that golf is a game of precision, patience, and intelligence, and takes the talent of a finely tuned athlete. Yes, there are similarities in our pursuits. They both require specialized equipment and appropriate apparel. I like to point out that tennis requires only one piece of equipment to compete, while golf requires an entire bag of various clubs and endless gear of one kind or another. Each sport requires shoes. My shoes are adapted to be worn on the islands clay tennis courts. Big Guys are designed to minimize damage to the carefully maintained golf courses and steady you as you set up for shots. We both agree practice can make the difference. We study our games and watch the pros on television. He can pronounce the stars in his game. Woods, Fowler, Mickelson and Rose not too bad. My game is not so easy. Wawrinka, Jokovic, Sharapova and Wozniackido do not come trippingly off the tongue. We aspire to be better, but find it harder and harder. Sometimes when one of us has a bad day and we are ready to give up our game of choice, the tennis god or golf god sends some good shots and reignites our determination. We both enjoy watching sports on television, so yet another ball preoccupies us once football season starts. There always seems to be a game on one or all of our television sets. Stop to think about it. Why call it football when a very small amount of time is spent kicking it? People get pretty darn excited watching determined teams of men trying to kill each other and get that ball in the red zone. When they finally get the ball over the goal line, THEN they kick it. The Big Guy likes to point out that there is no equivalent to a hole in one in my game. Cant argue with him there.

Langley, VA agencyOne of the most influential voices in American political and social culture for more than 40 years is coming to the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, according to a news release. Bob Colacello, close friend and colleague of Andy Warhol, will be speaking at the Cummer Museum on July 19. As the editor of Warhols Interview magazine for nearly 10 years, Colacello helped to build the magazine into one of the most recognizable and respected lifestyle magazines in history. Colacello is also the author of Holy Terror: Andy Warhol Close Up, a memoir recounting his work with Warhol throughout the 1970s and early 1980s. The book offers a unique perspective on the creativity and eclectic style of Warhol and has cemented Colacello as an authority on the enigmatic artist. Of the reminiscences that have appeared to date, Colacellos Holy Terror is certainly the bestwritten and most killing ly observed. Dissecting Warhol with an amiable but sharp wit, Mr. Colacello also manages to give him more of a human dimension than anyone else has succeeded in doing, The New York Times wrote of Colacellos work. In addition to his work with Warhol, Colacello has worked as a special correspondent for Vanity Fair since 1984, writing numerous profiles on influential cultural figures such as Prince Charles and Naomi Campbell. Colacello is also the renowned biographer of Ronald and Nancy Reagan, receiving high praise for Ronnie and Nancy: Their Path to the White House, 1911-1980. Throughout his lifetime of work in social and political journalism, Colacello has established himself as an important cultural participant and observer. The Cummer Museum proud to display Andy Warhols Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century in the Museums permanent collection, and is thrilled to have Bob Colacello participate in this event, the release states. The lecture will begin at 6:30 p.m. and end at 8:30 p.m. Following the lecture, there will be a question and answer session with Colacello, followed by a book signing of Holy Terror. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the Cummer Shop. Registration is required, and costs $30 for Museum members and $40 for non-members. There will be light bites, beer, and wine included in the registration price and served before the lecture. For registration visit cummermuseum.org/events/calendar or call 899-6023. Warhol NL 6 col.

Spay and Neuter The Responsible Solution. rf rIts a yearlong celebration of flavor and beauty as we honor and grow the beet, coreopsis, calibrachoa and tulip. The National Garden Bureau has declared 2018 the year of these garden mainstays. This nonprofits goal is to inspire you to grow these and more plants in your gardens at home and work. The celebration starts with the tulip, a symbol of spring. They come in a variety of flower types and colors. Select from early bloomers like Apricot beauty and end spring with a late blooming double tulip like Backpacker. Then add some pizzazz with more double blooms, ruffled petals of parrot, pointed flowers of lily types or fringed tulips. Add more low-maintenance beauty to your garden with the other two National Garden Bureau Year of Flower designees. 2018 honors the annual calibrachoa and perennial coreopsis. Once you grow calibrachoas, youll know why it has become a gardeners favorite. Youll appreciate the wide selection of colors and outstanding performance in containers. You may know these beauties by their collection or series names such as Superbells, Million Bells, Callie, and Calipetite. Fill a basket with these beauties or mix them with other flowers, vegetables and herbs. Dress up a pot of elephant ears or base of trees with calibrachoas, cascading over the edge of the pot. The only challenge youll have is deciding which one of these colorful plants to grow. Grow a bit of sunshine in your garden with coreopsis. No matter where you garden or your gardening style you can find a coreopsis that fits the situation. Enjoy the long blooming, small yellow daisy-like blooms and fine foliage of threadleaf coreopsis (Coreopsis verticillata). Include these versatile plants in natural, informal and even formal garden settings and containers. The towering tall coreopsis (Coreopsis tripteris) brightens the back of the flower border with its yellow daisy like flowers from mid summer into fall. Try a few of the newer coreopsis introductions with larger blooms and different colors. Big Bang Cosmic Eye has bright yellow flowers with dark red center, while Coreopsis Ruby Frost of the Jewel Series has ruby-red flowers with a fringe of frosty white. Dress up your dinner table with the NGBs edible of the year, beets. Not only are they tasty and pretty, but theyre also good for you. These small vegetables are high in fiber, vitamins A and C, have more iron than most vegetables and are rich in antioxidants, calcium, potassium, phosphorus and folic acid. Use beet greens in salads and roast, cook or juice the colorful roots. Change things up with yellow and gold beets like Touchstone Gold. Its vibrant orange-red exterior and golden center will add something special to any dish. Entice those reluctant to eat beets to the table with All-America Selections winner, Avalanche. The snow-white root has all the sweet flavor of the beet without any bitterness or earthy flavor that may have discouraged them in the past. Then visit the NGBs website (ngb. org) for creative and tasty ideas for adding beets to your meals. Chef Jonathan Bardzik shares fun and easy recipes and a video to help you brighten your meals with beets. Join the fun and add these 2018 National Garden Bureau designees to your containers and gardens. Then share the beauty and flavor with friends and family throughout the growing season.

The Amelia Island Genealogical Society will hold its regular monthly meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 17, in the Community Room of the Fernandina Beach Branch Library, located at 25 N. Fourth St. in Fernandina Beach, according to a news release. Marie Santry will present Whos Your Daddy: Even Original Records Can Lead You Astray. Genealogical case studies explore a research problem and how it has been solved. One of the best ways to learn is through the successes, mistakes and techniques of other genealogists. This program is a case study of a man who grew up with the surname Haskell. He had his fathers birth record, Social Security application, and other documents identifying the Haskell surname. These records indicated the father was born in 1892 in Lapeer County, Mich., but searching census records did not find any such person in 1900 or 1910. He doesnt surface in census records until 1920. Thus began a mystery that led to two other surnames, more birth records, marriage records, news paper accounts, court papers, and finally DNA tests. Santry has been researching her family history for almost 30 years and has helped others in their search as well. As a member of the Amelia Island Genealogical Society, she designed an update of a genealogy course for beginners and has been a principle instruc tor in the course for 10 years. She has pre sented programs for AIGS, the Jacksonville Genealogical Society, the Coastal Georgia Genealogical Society, the Amelia Island Historical Society, and the Amelia Island Museum of History. She is past-president of AIGS, pastregent of the Amelia Island Chapter NSDAR, and a former vice chair of the Genealogical Records Committee of the Florida State Society DAR. She also serves the Florida State Genealogical Society, reviewing appli cations for their Descendant of Florida Pioneers program. Santry taught high school and college math for 14 years before joining RCA as an electrical engineer in 1983. She retired from Lockheed Martin in 2003, having worked for over 20 years in the fields of automated test equipment and jet flight simulators.fntbtb tn SUBMITTEDMembers of Nassau Council on Agings Adult Day HealthCare also known as The Club enjoyed the warm sunshine June 14 as they celebrated Flag Day with staff and volunteer support.
