rfnt rfntb b rfntbtrrbrrrfrr Fernandina Beach City Attorney Anthony Leggio claimed the Ocean Highway and Port Authority owed the city more than $300,000 in taxes, fees and interest.July 14, 1993 Nassau County, choose your Best Best of the 2018 Friday, July 13, was the deadline for filing as a candidate for the Fernandina Beach City Commission Group 4 and Group 5 seats up for election this fall.

To request a ballot to vote by mail, contact Supervisor of Elections Vicki Cannon at (904) 491-7500, go to www.votenassau. com, or email info@votenassau.com. Early voting starts Oct. 26 and ends Nov. 3. The general election is Nov. 6. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day. A Fernandina Beach surfer said he is not afraid of the ocean and hopes the public will not be either, in the wake of his Friday the 13th encounter with a shark. According to the Fernandina Beach Fire Department, Ocean Rescue was dispatched to Dustin Theobalds shark bite incident on South Fletcher Avenue at 2:35 p.m. on Friday and then to another attack minutes later. The second person was reported to be an underage male. Ocean Rescue closed the beaches to swimming in the city limits for the rest of the day, but reopened them on Saturday. Theobald was surfing with his 8-yearold son, Emerson, near the Sadler Road beach access when the incident involving him occurred. Theobald spoke to the News-Leader from his Jacksonville hospital bed. He was preparing for surgery to repair damaged tendons in his leg. He said he and Emerson were surfing a sandbar when the attack occurred. He had just caught a wave, and I was laying on my belly, watching him paddle back out, Theobald said. I felt something grab my foot. I turned around and reached back toward my foot out of instinct. I put my hand over its head, not on purpose. I couldnt see anything from the white water and sand churned up. It wasnt like he was thrashing or anything like that, but he did a left-and-right and jerked on my foot to see if he could pull anything off real quick and get out of there. He could have held on a lot longer and kept going. I think once he tasted me, he let go. Theobald said the side-to-side jerking motion told him it was a shark. Since he could not see it, figuring out what type of shark it was has become a matter of deduction. Obviously I didnt see enough to do anything but made an educated guess, he said. It was most likely a bull shark, Im thinking. They come in shallow water. When they bite, they jerk. They try to shred what they are biting apart. Black tips are more speed swimmers, they grab, bite, and go. A bull shark is going to grab and try to rip and tear. Nurse sharks dont have that kind of teeth that would go around my foot and grab and jerk. I can really only narrow it down to a bull shark. According to the Florida Museum of History, before last Friday, Nassau County had only four confirmed, unprovoked shark attacks since 1882. Theobald said the rarity of the event is what has piqued the interest of the pubrfntbff PAT FOSTER-TURLEY/FOR THE NEWS-LEADERA monarch butterfly in Gainesville inspects milkweed plants, perhaps looking for a site to lay her eggs.

While investigators will not give specific details, Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper said some items of interest that he hopes will help solve the mystery of what happened to Joleen Cummings have been found this week in a Georgia landfill. It may be something, it may not be, Leeper said on Friday at a news conference held outside the Waste Management Chesser Island Road Landfill in Charlton County, Ga. We want to double check to make sure. If it is, then well have it. Leeper said the more than 200 personnel from the FBI and his office who conducted the search last week had completed their work. We believe weve done all we can do here, but we will continue our investigation, continue gathering evidence, continue putting our criminal case together to present to the State Attorneys Office, and they will determine any additional charges that may be made, the sheriff said. Kimberly Kessler, also known as Jennifer Sybert, is in the Duval County Jail on a charge of auto theft. A surveillance video allegedly shows Kessler exiting Cummings vehicle in the parking lot of the Home Depot in Yulee around 1 a.m. on Sunday, May 13. Cummings disappeared after working a shift with Kessler at Tangles Hair Salon in Fernandina Beach on Saturday, May 12. She was reported missing on May 14. A law enforcement officer found Kessler in her own car, a 2016 Kia Soul, at an Interstate 95 rest area in St. Johns County the following day and arrested her on the theft charge. Leeper has said Kessler is so far not cooperating with investigators. Law enforcement officials reported two weeks ago that they have surveillance video allegedly showing Kessler throwing away a white trash bag and the contents of a trash can into a dumpster in Nassau County. They believe what went into the dumpster could be evidence in the missing womans case. It was determined that the contents of that dumpster were taken to the landfill south of Folkston. Searchers have sifted through 3,300 tons of trash since Friday, July 6.bftbffbfSEARCH Continued on 3AA major fire off North 14th Street in Fernandina Beach late Monday night totally destroyed a building as well as some boats and equipment at Ocean Outboard Marine. There were no injuries reported. According to a news release from the city of Fernandina Beach with information provided by Fire Chief Ty Silcox, units from the city as well as Nassau County Fire-Rescue were dispatched at approximately 11:40 p.m. to the fire at 997 Egans Creek Lane, the address for Tiger Point Marina and Boat Works, where they found the Ocean Outboard Marine boat shop fully involved, with fire venting through the roof, and impinging on an additional warehouse. Firefighters maintained a defensive attack on the fire. The release says the fire was out by 1 a.m. Tuesday. The building was a total loss. Individuals from Florida Public Utilities were requested to secure power, the Department of Environmental Protection and the United States Coast Guard have been notified regarding any potential chemical exposure, and the State Fire Marshals Office is conducting an investigation into the cause of the fire, alongside members of the Fernandina Beach Police Department, according to Silcox. Deputy Fire Chief Jason Higginbotham said Tuesday morning that the State Fire Marshals Office has not yet determined the cause of the fire. The FDEP did determine that no hazardous materials at the site got into the water, Higginbotham said.tff nfnbfPHOTOS BY ROBERT FIEGE/NEWS-LEADER brSHARKS Continued on 8A Dustin Theobald is visited in the hospital by his friend, Shayna Eriksen, who brought him funny sharkthemed gifts.

On July 9, the Department of Defense began mailing letters to notify affected veterans, and on July 11 the Internal Revenue Service issued guidance to assist veterans. The National Veterans Legal Services Program says it discovered the error in 2014 and considered filing litigation to help veterans, but felt the best option to assist all of the veterans affected, was to ask Congress to pass legislation. The Combat-Injured Veterans Tax Fairness Act of 2016 was passed and signed into law by President Barack Obama in December 2016. NVLSP will issue advice to help veterans and their families in the coming weeks through our website at www.nvlsp.org and social media accounts, said Bart Stichman, executive director of NVLSP, in the release. NVLSP offers the following preliminary advice if you are affected: Tip No. 1: Watch for your notification letter in the mail. Notification letters are being mailed until July 20 from the Department of Defense. Keep this letter in a safe place and do not lose it. When you receive your notification letter, send an email to info@nvlsp.org. Tip No. 2: Review the guidance from DFAS and the IRS. The process of requesting a refund is complex. Review carefully all the guidance from the IRS, the 1040X form, the instructions for the 1040X form, and the guidance from the Defense Finance & Accounting Service (DFAS). Tip No. 3: Take your time. This is not paperwork to rush through. It is complex. It is important veterans or their survivors or caregivers carefully evaluate their situation before filing a request for a refund with the IRS. You have at least one year from the date of the notification letter to file a request for a refund. Tip No. 4: Watch NVLSPs website and social media accounts for more advice to help you. NVLSP attorneys who have viewed public guidance issued over the last few days by DFAS and the IRS are actively working with a pro-bono law firm to assemble advice to help affected veterans and their families seeking refunds. When this advice is ready in the next few weeks, NVLSP will post it at www.nvlsp. org and share it through social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter (@Lawyer4Warriors). The National Veterans Legal Services Program is an independent, nonprofit veterans service organization that has served active duty military personnel and veterans since 1980.

I care about the future of Nassau County. I believe that the future of Nassau County depends on the decisions we make today that will impact our most precious resource, our children. It is our responsibility to ensure that the children of this county continue to be given every opportunity to learn and grow into productive citizens, fully prepared for the challenges they will face as adults, Martin said in the release. Martin is employed as the executive director of Florida State College at Jacksonville Nassau Center. Martin has lived in Nassau County for 25 years with her husband, John, who is retired from the Navy and recently retired as Nassau Countys Veterans Service Officer. They have one daughter, Janel, who is a graduate of Fernandina Beach High School, and is currently employed as a teacher there. They have four grandchildren, three of whom attend Nassau County schools, and the fourth is two years old. Martin declined to be interviewed by the News-Leader.

He said they will be analyzed at the Florida Department of Law Enforcement laboratory in Jacksonville, and that it may be several weeks before any results are obtained. We didnt know what we were looking for, but we found a few things that piqued our interest and were going to check them, Leeper said. Kessler, according to law enforcement officials, has at least 18 aliases and dozens of previous addresses. Leeper said he is confident that Kessler is the key to the investigation. I do know that there is one person who knows where Joleen is, he said. That person is in the Duval County Jail, and shes not talking. Leeper declined to give details as to why he believes Kessler knows the location of Cummings, saying that investigators reached their conclusion because of the evidence that we found. We have a lot of evidence weve recovered, a lot of forensic evidence weve recovered, Leeper continued. We believe the only person that knows where Joleens at is Kimberly Kessler, he said. Law enforcement will continue to follow all credible leads in order to build a rocksolid case, the sheriff added. We have not received any credible leads in a while, so we will continue with our criminal investigation to put a rock-solid case together to make sure that this will never happen again, he said. Leeper has said that, when details of the case are made public, the community will be shocked, but did not say what aspect of the case would prove shocking. Once were ready to release those details, we will, he said, (Kessler) hasnt been charged with anything other than auto theft. I can tell you, Im shocked.

Florida, which had one half the population of New York in 1980, recently passed New York as the third largest state. As reported by Jeff Kunerth in the Orlando Sentinel, Floridas population growth is also the result of an improving economy. There are some large benefits that come with this statistic. For example, as Kunerth notes, the numbers are more than just bragging rights. Its also money and politics. Population determines federal funding and congressional seats. Since 2010, Florida has gained two seats in the House of Representatives while New York lost two. As Neal Freeman points out in a recent National Review article, Florida spends approximately half as much on state government as New York. Freeman, having lived in and been heavily involved in politics in both places, strongly believes that consumer experiences are, despite the tremendous difference in spending, roughly equivalent in the two states, with a small but widening advantage accruing to Florida. The reason for this, Neal states, is that even as the country elected Democrat presidents in Clinton and Obama, Floridas governorship is different: Florida, for the last 24 years, has sent nothing but Republicans to Tallahassee. When Rick Scott was elected governor, we did not know what to expect. However, his two terms have brought about some excellent results. There are a lot of economic reasons why we are so happy to be Florida residents. And whether you want to give Scott the credit, here are the statistics: Since he has been in office, the unemployment rate has gone from over 10 percent to 3.6 percent. In addition, Florida employers have created nearly 1.5 million jobs, a growth rate of 20.3 percent. As Mark Vitner, an economist for Wells Fargo, writes about Scott, He has done very well. But, it didnt just happen. When he came into office, the future of the state was very much in doubt. Therefore, he deserves a good bit of the credit. And, of course, we Floridians in Nassau County are sharing in the benefits. On the other hand, Jeff Ostrowski points out in the Palm Beach Post, The Democratic side derides the wisdom of the governors economic platform with his emphasis on cutting taxes, slashing regulation and paying incentives to corporations who create jobs. But as we head to a new election for governor, some like Freeman have major concerns with what happens next. Freeman in his National Review piece worries, there are good reasons the Democrats believe they have an opportunity to win the governors race. First, as with the Clinton vs. Trump race, for the first time in eight years the governors race is an open seat. Second, the tidal wave of Puerto Ricans attracted to the mainland by economic opportunity and Hurricane Maria has changed the political dynamic. Third, and he believes most significant, is the fact that the Republicans have one too many good candidates. The Republican candidates for governor, Adam Putnam and Ron DeSantis, both say they support what Rick Scott stood for in turning around the states economy. Both are accomplished, articulate, well funded and highly competitive, so either should be a winner. However, Freeman states that after the primary on Aug. 28, whoever loses will crawl out of bed exhausted, bloodied, broke and quite possibly, seething with resentment at his Republican opponent. Then with the election only two months away, he worries whether the party will have the time and the energy to truly come together. As I watched the recent debate with Ron DeSantis and Adam Putnam, I could see how contentious it was becoming and I began to understand Freemans concern. With this as the argument, you would think Republicans would be energized to get out and support the candidate who wins their primary. Freeman is taking no chances and in trying to get everyone to come together has developed an Aug. 29 committee to gather resources, mediate between factions, smooth the path for whoever wins and focus the partisan energies on winning the November election. However, I have talked to many people who dont share Freemans concerns, and are not eager to waste their time on something that is not their reality. Sounds a little like Pennsylvania and Michigan in the presidential race, and New York after Giuliani and Bloomberg. My reality is, people love to support change.   So again, I   understand why Neal Freeman is so concerned.

The agreement, left over from when Kinder Morgan operated the port, has five-plus years remaining. Christopher Ragucci, CEO of Worldwide Terminals, said he understood the contract he assumed from Kinder Morgan would be negotiated into a longterm agreement that could run as long as 25 to 30 years. Ragucci obtained financing for the deal, paying off over $6 million in existing port debt. OHPA attorney Clyde Davis said at the meeting that Florida law requires port commissioners to do one of three things when the existing contract expires: request invitations to bid, request invitations to negotiate, or issue a request for proposals. The existing port operating agreement is a document, a contract that is more than 25 years old. Over the past year there has been significant evolution in the relationship between OPHA and Nassau Terminals, the operating company, Davis said. In the meeting, Ragucci disagreed with Davis about how exactly to handle the contract, saying Davis would hear from Raguccis lawyers with their position statement. But by yesterday Ragucci said he was feeling confident that things with the operating agreement would be worked out and that he and his company have a good working relationship with Davis. Ragucci also mentioned at the July 11 meeting that there had been a security breach at the port but gave no details. Commissioner Bob Sturgess took that opportunity to emphasize the need for OPHA commissioners to be better informed of port operations. According to Fernandina Beach Police Chief James Hurley, the security breach Ragucci mentioned took place during the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival weekend, when a licensed boat pilot with passengers onboard docked at the fntbbfffbf PEG DAVIS/NEWS-LEADERChristopher Ragucci, CEO of Worldwide Terminals Fernandina LLC, center, walks with state Rep. Cord Byrd, R-Neptune Beach, left, and state Sen. Aaron Bean, R-Fernandina Beach, right, on July 4 at the Port of Fernandina. Byrd and Bean were there to welcome the M/V Owl, the largest cargo ship to visit the port in recent memory, according to Ragucci. We cant afford to turn away any cargos. Fernandina is back in business in a big way and available for any and all cargoes, Ragucci told the News-Leader on July 4. port in search of restrooms. Port security officials intercepted the passengers. There are a number of agencies tasked with security operations as well as monitoring and enforcing regulations regarding the transportation of hazardous materials, including the U.S. Coast Guard, the Department of Transportation, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the National Transportation Safety Board, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Transportation Safety Administration, as well as U.S. Customs and Border Control. It is in the context of revising the operating agreement that Sturgess, an attorney who has served on the OPHA board since 2016, offered specific recommendations related to security and hazardous cargo shipments. Sturgess sees it as a perfect opportunity to include additional reporting requirements. In a conversation with the News-Leader, Sturgess said changes are needed to guarantee that the port authority has authority and the public has knowledge. Contract language proposed by Sturgess calls for the operator of the port to provide notice to the OPHA of potential liability, security breaches, and certain dangerous cargo. In addition to his suggestion that the port operator be required to inform the OHPA of any security breaches, Sturgess also recommends that the port operator provide notification when the port handles hazardous materials known as certain dangerous cargoes. Objections were made in the past that such a report would be laborious. Sturgess, in an effort to quell those objections, presented a one-page document that the Port of Miami uses for such a notification. Reached via email about the Port of Fernandinas handling of hazardous materials, Davis wrote: Cargo is not regulated at the local level. Rather ... it is done at the national level. If it is moving as a bulk tank or containerized freight, then the tank or container will carry a required placard that identifies the particular hazard presented by the item. It may be flammable, combustible, or an oxydizer. It could be toxic or poisonous, such as an insecticide. The nature of the danger or hazard depends on the particular item, but, regardless, the cargo must carry the required placard before it can enter the port. This is true whether it comes in or out by truck or by ship. Coming or going, it must be identified in order to be properly handled, Davis stated. Davis also said that the port is not licensed to handle explosives or radioactive materials. The Coast Guards primary role for ports is safety, explained Petty Officer 1st Class Luke Clayton with the Coast Guard Seventh District Public Affairs Detachment in Jacksonville. Partner agencies have similar roles, but different, more specific, missions. Ultimately the Captain of the Port, Coast Guard Sector Jacksonvilles Commanding Officer, is in charge of the port and its operations. As far as inspections, the Coast Guard inspects the port for a multitude of requirements including the handling and storage of hazardous material. This also includes inspecting policies and plans for emergencies. A port is inspected fully annually with random inspections throughout the year to test the integrity of the port. These random inspections can be for various requirements at any time, night or day, Clayton continued. Vessels entering the port are also inspected on an annual basis but can be inspected more often if they have a track record of violations. This varies from ship to ship and can coincide with other ports. Different vessels have different requirements depending on type, size and a multitude of other variations. Hazardous materials are controlled and regulated through federal law. The Coast Guard monitors all hazardous materials with port partners to ensure they are handled according to federal regulations. The overall health of the port is critical to commerce and daily function, which is why we have many laws and requirements in place. Sturgess summarized his concerns: The port authority and the public have a right to know about what goes in and out of the port and what is stored there. While it hasnt been a problem in the past, whether or not a port operator decides to handle such material is, pure and simple, a business decision. In other port news, while the state of Florida has appropriated $2 million toward the acquisition of a new multipurpose crane and the construction of a new 50,000-square-foot covered warehouse, a resolution approved by OHPA estimated the total project cost at $5,000,000. Ragucci presented some positive news during his report to the OHPA on port operations, announcing that tonnage by commodity is up, container tonnage is up, and calls to the port are up, as is rail cargo traffic. Ragucci also addressed the delay experienced when the M/V Owl made a delivery of heavy oats to the port at the beginning of the month. The ship had to first offload a portion of its total cargo in Houston, Texas. Because of siltation in the federal shipping channel and in the Port of Fernandinas berth, the ship was prevented from docking with a full load. Ragucci also hired additional staff from Jacksonville to work around the clock to get the container unloaded in three days. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is responsible for maintaining navigable depths at the nations ports. The last time the Corps did anything in or around the Port of Fernandina was in 2000. According to project manager Beau Corbett of the USACE Jacksonville office, a verbal request has been made to the Corps for new dredging, but a more in-depth and official statement of need is required before the Corps moves forward. The Corps did complete work in the past eight months on a survey requested by pilots operating to and from the port. There are three major components to consider in doing such a survey, including the depth up to the port where vessels are offloaded, the turning basin, and the rest of the channel that leads up to the Intracoastal Waterway. Ragucci is anxious to have the dredging work completed in order to fulfill his promise to increase traffic to the Port of Fernandina. In addition to noting for commissioners that all evaluation measures of port operations are up, he also mentioned a potential contract involving the transport of regionally manufactured portable classrooms destined for the Virgin Islands.rf NL 6 col.

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 The discussion around HB 631 has been on the kitchen table for many families and a topic of lunch for many here in our community. I, along with my family, took our pictures to complete the affidavits to protect our interests in the dry sand and to submit to the county the evidence they would need to show the customary use or ancient use of these areas where our children and family would use the beach. In reviewing the statute that was passed, it is clear that both state Rep. Byrd and state Sen. Bean just did not read the bill or had no clue that this bill would become applicable to a wide range of properties that could fall under the term beach. There are beaches created along rivers, lakes, and of course along the coastal areas of Florida. It would appear that the Byrd/Bean beach improvement plan seems to suggest, in basic terms, that you would be able to place your towel on the wet sand because that is clearly under the law public property. In order to place that same towel on the dry sand, however, the county would need to file a complaint and seek a court declaration affirming its position that there is an ancient, customary use to that parcel of dry sand. I know that my son would like to play as a young child in the dry sand, so fortunately I had some pictures to send along to the county for them to use. I am sure many other residents of our lovely community did the same. The fact remains that with this new law, which has imposed a tremendous burden upon a whole community, has raised new issues for beach property owners and for people who go to the beach as to where the property lines actually really exist. This dispute never was an issue in our community until the Byrd/Bean beach improvement plan was adopted under HB 631. In my view this law opens a Pandoras box to judicial activism. It allows the courts the ability to start issuing declaratory rulings about the proposed decisions of local governmental entities, de novo. This legalized styled of judicial activism is a problem that will blur the lines between our elected local municipalities and county commissions and the judicial branch, which should have the power to settle disputes over laws that these entities adopt or acts they take up. But this should not be the case before the local elected body has crafted its policy or law. I know that Representative Byrd was on a recent news show and stated that other laws would circumvent HB 631 somehow. This was a disingenuous statement in that he should know having been at the capitol that the committee staff who work on these bills do significant research to ensure that these bills or proposed laws do not contravene other laws because that would not be permitted under the process. I believe Byrd should have filed an amendment to exempt Nassau County from this hostile legislation from the start. This would have forced the South Florida Democrat Rep. Katie Edwards, who is also a lawyer, to come to him to make her case why Nassau County should be included. Byrd was in the majority party, the sponsor of the bill was a South Florida Democrat, and he could have easily sought an amendment to the bill to protect our interests. Instead, Byrd decided it was not controversial and no action was necessary on his part. He would come to this conclusion, because in his home community at Neptune Beach they have had customary use ordinances for decades, so this proposed bill would have no effect on the beach where he states he runs each morning. The problem with having a state representative who does not live in your community is that he does not understand the issues and the needs properly. Clearly the issue was not controversial for Byrd because where he lives was not being adversely affected. The (primary) election on Aug. 28 is a time for the community to make many decisions about who should represent them in the seats of government. I was told many years ago by GOP Chairman Tom Slade, If an incumbent cannot tell you three problems they have without dispute provided leadership on, then maybe its time for new leadership. It was wise counsel in my early days of political involvement and has always helped guide my decisions when evaluating incumbents who are asking to be re-elected to their seats. Leadership is about solving problems for the people here in Nassau County. It makes a difference where your state representative lives, and for many years this seat was in Nassau County. Its time to bring the seat back to Nassau County, repeal HB 631, and save the dry sand. Its time for new leadership. D A tfrfB rn Adkins There is an old saying that there is more than one way to skin a cat. Meaning that if you have a goal in mind, you can achieve that goal, even if initial efforts prove unsuccessful. If your goal is to grow a garden, and your vegetables dont grow, plant them in a better-drained area. If your goal is to lose weight and the pounds dont budge after counting calories, try adding an exercise regimen to your efforts. If your goal is to go to school but your job requires you to work 9 to 5, take night classes. If your goal is to keep the press from telling the world what you are doing as a public official, make the people stop reading the news. Simple. But, in a country in which one of the founding principals is a free, unbiased press, how does one do this? Well, first, discredit the press. Call them the enemy of the people. Call them out by name, CNN, The New York Times. It doesnt matter if they are trusted, reliable institutions. Call them liars. People wont read what they dont believe. When they lob a difficult question, make fun of them, bully them, discredit them. If they point out a policy or personnel decision that seems self-serving or not in the public interest, mock them. But, that could be like whack-amole. Sure, the national media are sitting targets especially if they are often literally in your face. Their job is to be in your face, so its difficult to miss them. But, there are thousands of local newspapers across the country. And they have boots on the ground. They can report how bad decisions are affecting the man on the street, be it a person who has lost their job due to tariffs, the mother whose child no longer has health insurance because you didnt like the program put in place by your predecessor, the student whose school in uninhabitable while cuts are made to education. As another saying goes all politics are local politics. According to the Pew Research Institute, 72 percent of Americans follow local news. Thats a pretty large percentage of the population that is reading local newspapers. A number that cannot be ignored. So, if you tried working on it from the consumer end by addressing the demand for reliable news, and newspapers are still reporting, attack the problem by going after the supply of newspapers literally. Donald Trump has enacted tariffs that will affect items as American as Harley-Davidson, Levis, Budweiser and orange juice. Now tariffs are working to destroy another American staple small, local newspapers. The 22-percent tariff the Trump administration has imposed on some Canadian newsprint has raised the cost of newsprint to some newspapers, which could be a death knell for smaller papers when the newspaper business is not doing well in general. Large papers, some of which had been in print for 100 years, have closed. Hundreds of thousands of journalists have been laid off, leaving just a few to cover what has traditionally been covered by dozens of reporters. While larger newspapers, owned by multibillion dollar corporations, might be able to absorb the additional cost of printing, smaller newspapers, already threatened by electronic media and the 24-hour news cycle, might not survive. We at local newspapers have persevered, covering breaking news, local sports, features about the people in your community, and politics, from those elected to the mosquito control board to the president. Local newspapers not only give you insight as to who is elected, but follow the effects of those elected on their constituency, because we are the constituency too. Going at the problem of journalism has now come full circle. Cut off the demand for journalists by calling them liars, whip up a frenzy of hatred for reporters. A free press is still the best way for the American public to know what the president is up to. His goal frequently appears to be to move that attention scrutiny of his policies and decisions away from himself. Dont let that happen. Dont let him skin that cat.trntf rt NATE BEELER-THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH-CAGLE CARTOONS Nassau County Commissioners:Danny Leeper, District 1-Fernandina Beach, 261-8029 (h), 430-3868 (cell), email: dleeper@nassaucountyfl.com Steve Kelley, District 2 Pat Edwards, District 3 George V.

Smith Phil Chapman Chip Ross: 410-394-0220 (cell), email: cross@fbfl.org rfntbrI am happy to read in the NewsLeader July 13, that the city of Fernandina might institute beach park ing fees. As a former resident of Sanibel Island for 20 years, Sanibel finally began a beach-parking fee. Kindly allow me to describe how Sanibel instituted it. The Sanibel beaches began to be so crowded with litter and other debris from individu als all over Lee County. Consequently, resident parking became very difficult, and Sanibel residents were paying for the beach up-keep. To fund the cost of maintaining Sanibel beaches, annual resident beach decals were issued by the Sanibel police. Residents also were charged a fee. Residents had to provide proof of their residency, which was their drivers license, which gave them the opportunity to park at the differ ent access points on the island, very similar to Amelia Island. The annual resident sticker allowed residents to park free at the paid parking lots. If non-residents wanted an annual pass, they paid MUCH more than the resi dents. The two large (main) beaches on Sanibel had paid parking. Each beach parking lot had a self-pay parking meter that issued a parking stub and had to be visible on the dashboard. Beach goers had to choose a time from the meter. Of course the meter took credit cards. Tickets were issued as well as tow trucks called for offenders.   I hope you find this helpful. Please feel free to contact me. Janice Clarkson Fernandina BeachftbfA little haiku: Coyotes live here. They will kill cats and small dogs. Keep your pets inside! Urban coyotes are here to stay its up to us to find ways of coexisting with them. Coyotes are predators of small prey and are generally scavengers. The most common food item for coyotes is small rodents. However, they are also opportunistic and will shift their diets to take advantage of the most avail able prey. Keeping pets and pet food inside is the best way to keep coyotes out of your yard. If your pet is missing, call the ani mal shelters immediately. If you live in the city limits of Fernandina Beach, call the Nassau Humane Society at (904) 321-1647. Unincorporated Nassau County residents should call Nassau County Animal Services at (904) 5306150. If you live in the area of both the city and county, please call both. Be sure to call them back when you find your pet. Deborah Biggs Fernandina BeachfftAaron Bell, candidate for Nassau County Commission, District 2, is a seasoned businessman, dedicated fam ily man, and concerned citizen who cares deeply about the quality of life in our county. A practiced problem solver, with no personal interests in development or ancillary businesses, he clearly understands and articulates how the addition of 40,000 new county residents in the next few years will put tremendous strain on our emergency services, schools, the countys infra structure, and the flora and fauna of our region. He knows that the addition of one more lane each way on S.R. 200 will not be enough to handle the demands of a burgeoning population. And, as the newest of our public schools, Wildlight, is already at capacity, he knows at least two, if not more, elementary schools must be built, as well as a middle and high school. With no funding sources clearly outlined in existing plans, he is gravely concerned for the countys current taxpayers. Bell is running for office with the goal of addressing and remedying these issues. He intends to be a full-time county commissioner who is accessible and available to all residents. When you speak with him, you know he well understands the many future struggles our county faces. As he says, We cant just keep kicking the can down the road and not worry about where it will go. It is imperative that we vote for Aaron Bell, making him a county commissioner for the people and our future. This (primary) election takes place August 28. All registered voters, regardless of party or district in which you live, may vote in this election. If you will be out of town and need an absentee ballot, or have other vot ing questions, please contact the Board of Elections, (904) 491-7500 or www. votenassau.com. Pamela Park Fernandina BeachbfThe Light-Up Amelia Committee would like to thank the community for its participation in our 2018 Hometown Fourth of July Celebration presented by Community First Credit Union.

I really dont want people to be scared, he said. I want them to understand the odds of something like this happening. Its such a rare thing. I was surrounded by 100 to 150 people. There were a bunch of people out there with their kids. Im glad it happened to me versus anyones child thats out there. Theres a bunch of people out there with their kids. That little quick bite could have taken a foot. Theobald said he has been surfing for 22 of his 30 years, and the shark bite will not stop him, nor will it keep him from surfing with his son. Being a father, I cant stop. I have to set an example for him, he said. I think there will be some stuff I have to work through, mentally. I have to make sure that he knows, if you fall off the horse, you get back on. I cant imagine if it happened to him. Since he has been hospitalized, friends and acquaintances have helped him maintain a sense of humor about the attack, Theobald says, including gifting him with items such as a T-shirt with a picture of a shark on it proclaiming Human Week and a shark on a leash, which rides a surfboard. Its really uplifting my spirits, he said. I cant imagine having a negative attitude with something like this. Theobald owns Handyman and Home Maintenance LLC in Fernandina Beach and says he will be off work for a minimum of six weeks. His brother has started a GoFundMe campaign at http://bit.ly/2NojgEr, and the Fernandina Beach Stingrays, his sons swim team, is holding a fundraising event as well. He said the outpouring of support from the community has moved him. I havent shed a tear, except for thinking about my son, and the outpouring of support from the community, he said. Friday the 13th is traditionally a day for bad luck, but Theobald said he doesnt feel unlucky. I wasnt very superstitious before this, he said. I was thinking about playing the lotto that day. I guess maybe I had a choice and in some alternate timeline I would have won the lottery. Ive won the lottery in some ways. Everyone has come out to support me, mentally and emotionally. People have been really supportive. I never imagined it would turn to this. Im ready to go home and kick it on the couch with the dogs.

The Sweetwater Wetland Park, with all its nature, is a favorite stop of mine. Ive written about it often. The Museum of Natural History at the University of Florida is another regular visit of mine, especially the Butterfly house theres always something interesting to watch there. I usually stay at my friend Karen Browns house in Gainesville. Over the three decades or so that it has been my home base there, Ive watched Karen expand her double-lot garden. Shes added a water garden, a collection of carnivorous plants, bird feeders of all varieties, from suet to seeds, and most of all, an ever-expanding habitat full of native flowers, shrubs, and trees. Often when I visit, Karen and her partner, Bill, and I set off for some adventure or another, but this visit I took the time to savor the wonders of their garden. Karen recently retired from her job of 30-some years as information manager of the University of Floridas Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants, and she finally has more time for the gardening and bird watching that she loves. Wow, do her gardens show it! I learned a lot touring the gardens with her. I saw the beetles that she and others in her neighborhood have released to eat the invasive air potato vines. Judging from all the holes in the large heart-shaped leaves, they were doing a fine job of it. We have invasive air potato vines around here too, and those beetles have been released on the edge of the Greenway I hope they do as well. But theres another problem plant trying to get a toehold in Karens garden. Just beyond her fence, swallowtail butterflies were busy feeding on tall glorybower shrubs. These are highly invasive plants, so Karen keeps them out of her side of the fence, as much as she can, anyway. I hate to say invasive because they have beautiful pink flower heads that certainly do attract the butterflies. Mostly, though, Karens yard is a masterpiece of wellthought-out plant selections. She spends a lot of time digging out and chopping down overgrown shrubs and vines and planting native replacements. Everything she plants now is known as a Florida native that attracts birds, bees, or butterflies. Sometimes she has to make hard choices. For years now shes been yanking wild grapevines off her holly tree. Shes planted another holly tree nearby, since this species needs both a male and a female plant around to produce berries. The berries attract birds, but so do the grapes! Grape vines also create a bird-friendly structural habitat. Now she is letting the grapevines grow over the holly. In the fall, when the leaves die off, holly berries should be there too. Karen and I only spent a few minutes on this garden tour, but it was enough time to watch monarch butterflies hovering above her milkweed plants, maybe ready to lay their eggs on this host plant. Elsewhere in her yard, zebra longwings Floridas state butterfly fed on orange firebush flowers. And hummingbirds were zipping to and from her feeders. Once her buckeye shrubs started blooming, the hummingbirds showed up for the spring. She had not gotten her hummingbird feeders set up before they arrived, and they hovered near the place where the feeders had been last year. Now the feeders and the hummingbirds are settled again. There was a lot more to see in Karens garden, but it was getting hot and I had to leave for my drive back to Fernandina. Right before I left, Karen pointed to the sky, and we saw a snail kite high above us a rare treat in this part of Florida. For the first time accurately recorded, snail kites have been found nesting in Paynes Prairie, far north of their more typical, south Florida habitats. Gainesville is indeed a birders paradise, surrounded by natural areas in every direction. There is always something to watch in the wetlands, woods, and in your own backyard. Although Karen is now retired, its just the beginning of a new life, and birds and bees and butterflies will be a big part of it. In Karens volunteer roles as newsletter editor and membership coordinator of the Alachua Audubon Society, she has a lot of work still ahead of her. Fun work on her own schedule at last!

oo T rfr Nw nL tbto Skylar Whitty returns to lead the all-Nassau County team for a second season. She led the state runner-up West Nassau team on the mound in 2018 and will soon join the pitching line-up at Florida Atlantic University. I just enjoy softball and always compete, Whitty said. She doesnt like to lose. I hate it. Its the worst feeling ever. Whitty first joined a softball team at age 7. Since then, shes mostly played yearround, gaining the visibility of several college scouts. She originally committed to Georgia Southerns athletic program, but the coaching staff was reorganized and she found a better roost among FAUs Owls. I really liked the coaching staff at FAU and the campus, Whitty said. The picturesque Boca Raton campus features suite-style housing. Whitty will room with two teammates and another athlete. After four years at West Nassau, which included two seasons that ended as state runnerup, Whitty has strong ties with her teammates. Ill miss being around them and knowing everybody Im around and being familiar with how they play and knowing that they have my back. She heads south Aug. 16 to begin her college career. Im ready to venture out on my own, Whitty said. I feel kind of pressured, but its exciting at the same time. Shes ready to accept the challenge. The Owls play a few games in the fall, acclimating the freshmen into collegiate play. The Lady Warrior freshmen impressed Whitty throughout the 2018 season. For their age, they stepped up and did their jobs, she said. I think theyre going to continue to get better. They were great this year, but theyre going to get better as they mature as high school players. West Nassau set its sights on a championship bid early on. We worked hard all year, from the fall to Brooke Geiger Kayla Bradberry Emily Dixon Shelbea Holland Hope Epps Madison Dixon Linzie LaFavor Tristan Edwards Casey Erb Whitty COMMUNITY NEWSPAPERSSkyler Whitty in action this season for the Lady Warriors. the season, in hopes of getting back to the state championship, Whitty said. Morning workouts began at 7 a.m. throughout the fall. The team also held offseason conditioning games against Yulee, Oakleaf and Baker County. They were prepared for the state quest. After defeating Keystone Heights 4-1 in the Final Four, I think most of us thought, weve got this, we can win it, Whitty said. But Coral Springs Charter was ready to defend its Class 5A title, winning 4-1. I was devastated, Whitty said. I was like, this just happened again.

r There is the Daytona 500, where race car fans gather for the years most popular race, and The Players Championship golf tournament, where you can shake hands with Phil Mickelson. Then, there is the Greater Jacksonville Kingfish Tournament, where any fisherman entered in the event has the opportunity to become a fishing legend by catching the largest kingfish.Such was the case during the 2009 Fernandina Beach Fishing Rodeo, when Capt. Bob Johnson of North Carolina teamed up with Yulees Keith Lane and weighed in a massive 48.64-pound kingfish. Fishing aboard Johnsons 17-foot Boston Whaler, the Traveler, the pair of seasoned king mackerel fishermen fished in close to land and topped all other tournament teams with their impressive catch. Eighty-degree water temperatures fired up the beach kingfishing during the second and final day of the event, with the largest king mackerel, a 48.64-pound smoker, weighed in by team Traveler. At exactly 11 a.m., we had a big kingfish eat a large menhaden trolled just behind the prop wash of our 90-hp Mercury outboard, Johnson said. During its slow and methodical first run, not typical of most kingfish we hook, the line tangled with another kingfish line, and Keith had to bite the line free. After a deep run, the king came close to our kingfish boat, where Keith easily gaffed the tired king mackerel right in the shoulders. We took one look at the big king and headed to the Fernandina Beach City Marina kingfish scales. The Red Top condos are located some five miles south of the Jacksonville inlet and are well identified with their bright red roofs. Kingfishing there is excellent through the warm months of summer. A hard shell bottom attracts both baitfish schools and tournament-size king. During this weeks Greater Jacksonville Kingfish Tournament, the popular Red Tops will once again attract several skilled kingfish boats and more than likely produce several top-money kingfish. The regular tournament is July 19-20. Fishermen will be fishing a wide variety of kingfish waters, from just outside the Jacksonville jetty rocks to some 50 miles offshore where the deep waters of the Elton Bottom will more than likely F ERNANDINA B EACH T IDES T ides, Sun & Moo n : July 18-July 25, 2018 Sat. 7/21 Sun. 7/22 Mon. 7/23 Tues. 7/24 Fri. 7/20Thurs.7/19 Wed.7/25 Moonset 12:11A Sunrise 6:35A Moonrise 12:32P Sunset 8:28PWed.7/18 High 1:45A 8.62 Low 7:45A 1.34 High 2:21P 8.30 Low 8:15P 1.90 Moonset 12:48A Sunrise 6:35A Moonrise 1:32P First Qtr. 3:53P Sunset 8:28P Moonset 1:23A Sunrise 6:36A Moonrise 2:29P Sunset 8:27P High 2:37A 8.22 Low 8:41A 1.55 High 3:18P 8.21 Low 9:19P 2.16 High 3:30A 7.83 Low 9:36A 1.72 High 4:16P 8.15 Low 10:19P 2.30 High 4:25A 7.51 Low 10:29A 1.85 High 5:13P 8.12 Low 11:16P 2.36 Moonset 2:39A Sunrise 6:37A Moonrise 4:21P Sunset 8:26P High 5:20A 7.29 Low 11:19A 1.94 High 6:07P 8.12 Low --P -- Moonset 3:16A Sunrise 6:38A Moonrise 5:15P Sunset 8:26P Low 12:09A 2.35 High 6:12A 7.16 Low 12:07P 1.99 High 6:57P 8.14 Moonset 3:59A Sunrise 6:38A Moonrise 6:07P Sunset 8:25PTide calculations are for Amelia River, Fernandina Beach.

Popular baits for tournament-size kingfish include blue runners and goggle eyes, which can be purchased early each morning of the event by contacting Lees Live Bait at (561) 624-0089. He has a truck with a large livewell, and he meets fishermen at various boat ramps, including the local Dee Dee Bartels public boat ramp. Ribbonfish are long, knifelike baitfish that can also be purchased ahead of time at most bait shops; they are frozen and packaged in plastic sleeves. However, if you simply wish to secure your own live baits, casting an eight-foot cast net over a large school of menhaden is also an excellent kingfish live bait tactic. Live menhaden are typically fished with 20-pound fishing gear where a six-foot length of 30-pound coffee-colored wire is attached to the terminal fishing line using a small black barrel swivel. Next, a No. 4 live bait hook is haywire wrapped to the tag end of the wire leader. A short piece of 40-pound coffeecolored wire is then haywire wrapped to the eye of the live bait hook. Finally, a No. 4-4X treble hook is haywire wrapped to the tag end of the stinger wire. The length of the stinger wire is set so the stinger hook lays just behind the dorsal fin of the live menhaden. Live menhaden are then slow trolled at 1.5-2 knots on the surface and deep with the aid of downriggers. However, one of the best live bait kingfish tactics includes slow trolling a live bait just behind the prop wash of your outboard motor.

Nw L rfntbfL CtwrS pt r W henever I get a chance to visit White Oak, it makes me happy. Being outside, seeing endangered animals well cared for, and learning more about the difference White Oak is making in protecting endangered species makes for a very good day. For many, White Oak is the bestkept secret in Nassau County. You might be surprised to find giraffes, cheetahs, rhinos, zebras, all kinds of antelopes and gazelles and even a 100pound cassowary bird, all hidden in the piney woods of North Florida. White Oak encompasses more than 16,000 acres of hardwood hammocks, pine forest, and tidal wetlands. As you travel north and approach the Florida-Georgia state line, you make a left turn on a dusty dirt road that leads you to a guard gate and entrance to White Oak. I joined a group on one of the trolleys that tour White Oaks labyrinth of roads. We passed the generous enclosures that are home to a wide variety of amazing animals. We were able to step off the trolley and feed a long-necked giraffe that came to the fence and enjoyed the branches of fresh leaves we offered. At another stop we cautiously touched and petted with supervision a thick-skinned rhinoceros leaning against his enclosure fence. Surprisingly, rhinos are very gentle and we were in no danger. White Oak focuses on the conservation of threatened and endangered species. It was originally developed by an eccentric but brilliant man, Howard Gilman, who had fierce passion for those things he loved. These passions included arts of all kinds and endangered animals. Gilmans family owned extensive acreage that offered an ideal environment for many of the worlds endangered species. Through his foundation he not only worked to protect and save endangered species, he hosted a variety of national and international conferences and seminars at White Oak focusing on conservation and the environment, arts and culture and public policy. In 1990, a dance studio was built for Mikhail Baryshnikovs White Oak Dance Project and has served many other dance and theatrical projects. In 2013, Mark and Kimbra Walter purchased White Oak and have built on the base created by the Gilman Foundation. Through their financial commitment and innovative strategies they have realized great success with some of the worlds most endangered species. The Walters are committed to inspiring and teaching the next generation of conservationists. As their website shares, White Oak promotes endeavors in conservation through innovative science, education, training, and collaborations. We are committed to providing conservation options for the species that need them the most. We invite you to explore our over 16,000 acre haven for people, animals and ideas, and join in our effort to save species. The breeding programs have been very successful and have helped species closer to home. White Oak has worked with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to bolster wild populations of critically endangered Florida panthers and the Mississippi sandhill cranes. Yes, White Oak is a happy place for me and maybe for many others! There are a wide variety of activities offered from camps to tours. To find out more and support White Oak, go to their website at whiteoakwildlife.org.

During the weeklong event in June, Florida received first place honors in community service programs for education, home life, public issues, and communication and public relations. In addition, GFWC Florida was recognized for its outstanding service to several GFWC partners, including Operation Smile, Canine Companions, March of Dimes, United Nations Foundation Shot@Life, and Legislation and Public Policy. Little Women of Fernandina Beach received a participation award for their service to the General Federation of Womens Clubs, and Powell took home the 2016-2018 Charlotte Emerson Brown Award for Exemplary Service & Excellence in State Leadership. More than 1,800 attendees participated in the weeklong event.SUBMITTED ntrfrfbrtrfrDespite wearing a seatbelt, Tracy Alls was ejected from her Jeep in a crash during a snow storm in February in Illinois. Suffering many life-threatening injuries, including multiple lower back, neck, wrist and pelvic fractures, a cerebral hemorrhage and a punctured lung, she spent several weeks in ICU before being released to start physical therapy in May. She was transported to Yulee so she could rehab under the care of her sister, Stormy Kubatzke, who is a nurse, and Eric Kubatzke, a physical trainer who manages Advance Rehabilitation in Fernandina Beach.

This is Meera. Meera is a 3-year-old dog, reddish brown in color with a white chest. She currently weighs 44 pounds. Meera is a very friendly girl. She loves to go out for walks and be petted and loved on. She says she is better than a puppy because she is not so hyper and they are overrated!

Spay and Neuter The Responsible Solution. rf r The Nassau Humane Society has a new executive director. Jacki McDonald, who moved to Nassau County from Atlanta, Ga., said her top goal is saving and adopting more pets into loving forever homes. McDonald is a graduate of Emory Universitys Goizueta Business School and spent the first decade of her career in the business world, including nation al television and media marketing. She then decided to make a life change. Ive always cared deeply about animals, she said. While volunteering during her cor porate career, I noticed many animal welfare groups did not have the resources that many business people take for granted basics such as office supplies to print adoption forms. Rescue staffs were purchasing kitty litter or dog leashes out of their own pockets. I thought I could use my marketing and sponsorship skills to help get more resources and attention for animals in need. And so she entered the world of animal rescue full-time. She has worked with a large metro animal control, DeKalb County Animal Services; with one of Georgias oldest no-kill shel ters, PAWS Atlanta; and most recently as executive director of the Georgia SPCA. She has led fundraising efforts, matched future pet parents with the per fect dog or cat, and helped save literally thousands of homeless pets lives. In addition to pet rescue and adoption, McDonald said her goals at NHS include ensuring that all animals are treated with respect and proper care. She also wants to focus on education regarding issues such as the importance of spaying or neuter ing pets and planning for your pet rfntb frnrbrn SUBMITTEDJacki McDonald took over as the executive director of the Nassau Humane Society last month. after you are gone. She assumed her new role at NHS in June. Everywhere she goes in her extremely welcom ing new community, she said, she seems to make a new friend. As for NHS, the animals are so, so lucky to have this beauti ful facility and caring staff, she said. Joining McDonald in her move from Atlanta is her beloved rescue dog, Fizzle. He brightens my life, she said. I could hon estly write a book on the ben efits of pet ownership. You could have the most exhausting day and come home to your dog or cat, and the stress immediately melts away. They look at you as if you hung the moon especially rescue pets. I truly believe in my soul that rescue animals know that you saved them. Its a bond like no other. She pointed out that most rescue animals dont come from a bad background or have abuse in their past. Often they just were dealt a bad hand, she said. Their previous humans may have had a baby or moved or had some other life change and decid ed a pet didnt fit into their life style anymore. Our NHS pets are often house-trained already and easily adjust to their new family, and sometimes even purebred pets are available at shelters! We always welcome everyone to get involved through volunteering at the Adoption Center, socializing our cats, walking our dogs, assisting with landscaping, helping at our community dog park, or over at our wonderful resale shops, Second Chance and the Closet. Even if you only have a couple hours a week or month, come on over, McDonald said. More than 1,000 pets were adopted last year through NHS, a not-for-profit group whose facil ity meets the criteria of a nokill shelter. NHS also provides animal control services within the city of Fernandina Beach under a contract with the city and transports animals from over crowded shelters to help them find forever homes. More information about adoption and volunteering at NHS can be found at NassauHumaneSociety.com or simply pop in during business hours at the NHS Adoption Center, located at 639 Airport Road in Fernandina Beach. rfntnbtntSUBMITTEDThe final performances of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time at Amelia Musical Playhouse will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Amelia Community Theatre will pres ent the irreverent comedy An Act of God beginning this weekend at its Studio 209 stage located at 209 Cedar St. in Fernandina Beach. In this adult comedy, God has chosen to appear at a theatre, in the human form of a local actor, to address the audience on the many misconceptions about the way He thinks and works. God says, Yeah, I have grown weary of the Ten Commandments in exactly the same way that Don McLean has grown weary of American Pie. Assisted by the angels Gabriel and Michael, God reveals a new, improved set of commandments. The concept for the show began as a series of tweets by God, as written by suc cessful comedy writer and playwright David Javerbaum. That effort led to a book and then the 2015 Broadway play that starred Jim Parsons and, later in 2016, Sean Hayes. ACTs cast includes Sam Cobean, Scott Campbell and Toni DAmico. An Act of God is directed by Laura Swaim and carries a suggested R rating, based on content. Its funny and often poignant, as God chastises humankind for using Him to further its own plans. The show is sponsored by Amelia Island Escape Rooms. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, July 20-21, and July 26-28 and 2 p.m. July 22.
