D.A. Cook Sr. Cook, a native of the area, has been chosen as Grand Marshal for the Shrimp Festival Pirate Parade, to be held Thursday at 6 p.m. in down town Fer nandina Beach. A sturdy, unassuming man with a calm demeanor, Cook says he a ccepted the honor r eluctantly They talked me into it, Cook says. I didnt want to do it. Now living in West Kingsland, Ga., Cook is co-owner, with his father, Edwin A. Cook Sr., of two acres on Point Peter that have phenomenal water views of the Nor th River The pr o perty has a two-story building with office and kitchen, plus a large ground-floor workspace and 400-foot dock for his shrimp trawler I gr ew up in Nassauville, Cook says, and lived ther e after I graduated from school in 1967. Cook was there to help when the first shrimpboat races started, before they became the massive Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival. W e had the first shrimpfest gatherings at the B urbank net shop, Cook says. The building located near the waterfront in downtown Fer n andina Beach later became Standar d Marine.

Cook Sr. trawler with his father in 1979 from the San Sebastian Boat C ompany in St. Augustine and still uses it for commer-c ial fishing. Most shrimp trawlers w ere built in St. Augustine, back when they were building a pile of them, Cook says. Theyd build a custom boat if you ordered it, but t hey dont hardly build any, anymore. Daddy ran a boat for 50-some years, Cook s ays. Cook says he has stayed with commercial fishing and shrimping because he likes the freedom. I do what I want to do, Cook says. I dont have top unch a time clock, but I do put in more hours than most p eople. You have nice, clean, fresh air most of the time, and you can travel all over. I had a good boat to work with. Cook says he fishes anything I can catch the most of. His latest catch has been jellyfish, which are purchased by the Chinese, a ccording to Cook, but he p refers scalloping to any o ther catch. Scalloping is real good when they are out there, he s ays. With scalloping, you can go out and come b ack the same day. But there are no good scalloping places anymore. I did some scalloping the year before last. It used to be g ood in Cape Canaveral, then the cruise ships tookt hat over. Scallop beds are 25-30 m iles offshore, Cook says, while shrimp can be found 19 miles out. An advantage for fishermen living in Georgia, Cook says, is that they can sell their catch to anyb ody. There are fewer restrict ions in Georgia, Cook says. In Florida you have to have a blue card to unload your catch with. Its like a credit card, you have to have that number.

H EATHER A. PERRY News-Leader Butch Clark enjoys helping people explore Amelia Island and hell deliver the means to do so right to the door of their r esidence or hotel. Bikes, scooters, kayaks and s tandup paddleboards may be rented simply by making a p hone call to Butch at Bike, Scoot or Yak. Clark and his wife Debbie first fell in love with Amelia Island when visiting their son Beau during one of his first engineering assignments after g raduating from Georgia Tech. e visited him and decided t hat we would like to live here after retirement. We immediately started searching for a home on the island, said Clark. The couple, who grew up in western North Carolina, moved here from Bedford, Texas, in 2 000 after Clark retired. The idea for the business came up after renting kayaks d uring visits to St. George I sland and observing all the s cooters and bike for rent there. It was easy to carry the kayak in the back of our rental van a couple of blocks to our beachfront rental house, r ecalls Clark. Over the years, I would have done more kayak r entals, but transporting them f rom a shop to a launch site was d ifficult. Debbie and I brains tormed and came up with the idea of providing delivery service for kayak r entals on Amelia Island. The couple knew they wanted to offer more than just kayaks so their Bike Scoot Yak business was born. Its fun delivered! quips C lark. T he business got its start as a home-based, delivery-only concern but Clark is excited to announce theyve recently signed a lease for a stand-alone building next to Island Falls miniature golf course. In addition to bicycles for the whole family, scooters, paddleboards and kayaks, visitors c an also rent chairs and umbrell as, and soon even metal detect ors. Future plans include getting additional beach wheelchairs and perhaps selling kites. One thing we would like to do is occasionally offer our beach wheelchairs fr ee to or ganizations that will use them t o allow the less fortunate who c ant otherwise enjoy the b eaches, said Clark. Additional community service plans involve holding sales events in conjunction with equipment turnover and donating a por tion of the sales to a charitable or ganization. Also, well probably donate bikes to Barnabas for their program. Theyd also like to work with children and veterans groups to hold group activities involvi ng biking or kayaking. C lark welcomes inquiries for p artnering opportunities from all Nassau County organizations and sends grateful shoutouts to local businesses who helped get Bike Scoot or Yak off the ground, including Rick Kef fer Steve Johnson Auto, Allen s Pr o T railer, ONeals A utomotive, Bryan Taylor of B WT Designs, Amelia Island G raphics, attorney Pam Miller and realtor Regina Sluder.

The worlds largest automaker reportedly feels that Dallas is a better parking s pot for many of its 5,300 California-based employees.T he lower costs and accommodative environment in D allas are apparently enough to get Toyotas financial motor running more efficiently. The loss of much of Toyotas operation is indeeda blow to California and a nother boom for Texas. Ironically, the Toyota Prius hybrid vehicle has been the t op-selling model for the last t wo years in California, a s tate with the most stringent clean-air rules. T exas Gov. Rick Perry has enticed California companies to relocate to Texas as part of an ongoing media campaign. Perry says thato ver the past two years, 50 California companies have e ither relocated to or expanded into Texas creating 1 4,000 jobs there. Perry has lured companies with his promises of lower taxes and easier r egu lations. The message obviously rang out to Toyota, which cur r ently has its U .S. sales, marketing, f inance and engineering o perations at the Torrance, Calif., campus. This offers a lesson for other states, as well as coun ties and cities. Corporations will seek out locations where they can r eap the biggest p r ofit. T axes and r egulations f actor into this equation, as d o the quality of skilled labor, accessibility to major highways and ports, and availability of land and other resources. Here in Florida, Gov. Rick Scott has attempted to emu l ate T exas model. Scott has p ushed for lower taxes as w ell as decreased regulations, two critical issues when major corporations look to relocate. In New Y ork, state officialst here are promoting t ax-free zones to attract business. On its television c ommercials, thes tate is promising t hat new companies can operate for 10 years without paying property taxes. Other states such as Ohio pledge tax breaks on a comp anys inventory, equipment and income. They promote the plan as a new taxation s ystem to bring in new busin esses and industry. E ven though some people do not realize it, but waiving o r reducing taxes (for new or existing companies) is a popular technique that subtly generates economic activity. The trickle down effects ofc apitalism are real, powerful and unmistakable. Thats w hy the economy in Texas is one of the best in the count ry. Not only is Texas blessed with an abundance of natural r esour c es par t icularly in the petroleum and gas arenas it has also been opportunistic. The state possessesm any of the economic char a cteristics that California d oes not. According to the Orange County (Calif.d, Texas has been attracting thr ee times as many new companies as has California. AndT exans ar e actively continu i ng these job-seeking strate g ies. T hey say everything is bigger in Texas. This is often true that is, excluding taxes and r egulations. Those are bigger in California.

ALAN DONALDSON For the News-Leader H ow do you know if your c hilds eyesight is 20/20? Vision problems are not necessarily appar e nt to kids or to their parents. But if your youngster is a member of one of Boys & Girls Clubs locally you both have the opportunity to findo ut, and at no charge. A cooperative program between Coastal Vision Center in Fernandina Beach and the staf f at the clubs has resulted in professional vision testing scheduled recently for as many as 140 young club members. D r John McClane III, pr esi dent of Coastal Vision, knows t hat childhood success is highly dependent on seeing properly. Working with leaders of Boys & Girls Clubs Nassau County Foundation, McClane makes interns at his practice available to visit the clubs and a ssess how well the kids can s ee. I nterns in optometry are required to get experience in the field before they receive their OD degree as optometrists. The degree involves a total of eight years of study: four years of college plus anoth-e r four years specializing in o ptometr y The two inter ns at C oastal V i sion are within a month or so of graduating and wer e delighted at the chance to check out the kids at Boys & Girls Clubs. Intern Shawna Sturgis is a native of Fernandina Beach who first graduated from FSU and then went to Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale to obtain her prof essional degree. Her newfound f riend Tara Brackley is a native o f Syracuse, N.Y., a graduate of Cornell University and is about to become an OD from the New England College of Optometry in Boston. These young women not only know all about vision testing but havea n obvious love of kids which i s easy to see as one watches t hem work. The club members are required to get parental permission for eye exams and, after being checked, they are given a form which tells if their eyes are OK or may need professional follow-up. I n the past, a number of u nsuspected eye deficiencies h ave been detected through this program, to the great benefit of youngsters who had no idea they didnt see as well as their classmates. Boys & Girls Clubs are dedicated to every phase of thew ell-being of their members. O thers in the community like J ohn McClane, shar e that same dedication.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 7A W EDNESDAY A PRIL 30, 2014 OPINION News-Leader VOICE OF THE PEOPLE M M a a i i n n B B e e a a c c h h s s l l i i d d e e B efore we slide into a position as to whether we should have a slide at Main Beach, lets take a breath and study the issues, as your Park and Recreation Advisory Board has done for the last 15 years on which I have served. T his is the committee on which I a nd many other dedicated citizens s erve. There is a Main Beach Master P lan in which we have studied, amend ed and made suggestions to the commission with good, thoughtful dialogue. The master plan has been accepted by the commission. We have discussed and r eceived various pr o posals since the demise of the old water s lide. Many in our community lamente d the loss of this attraction. W e looked a t the Main Beach geography and stud ied car efully the active and passive use of the jewel we call Main Beach. Let us study the proposal and make recommendations to the commission and incr ease public dialogue befor e misstatements are made. Recently, o ver a six-year period, we worked with t he outstanding gr oup of volunteers t hat wanted to place an all-access play gr ound on some of Parks and Recr eation r e sponsible acr eage. W e are now poised for a ribbon-cutting of the Pirate Playground. Thanks to the many volunteers associated with the project, the dedicated staff of Park andR ecreation, the support of the comm ission and the community I could go and name many other projects that the board and the Parks and Recr eation staff have carefully planned, or ganized, presented and bought to completion the changes that have enhanced our community over the years. Let us go to work for y ou! B urton K. Bright P ark and Recreation A dvisory Board B B u u r r g g e e r r K K i i n n g g a a m m o o d d e e l l As I read the article concerning the Bur ger King signs (April 25 der where the county commissioners are coming from and in what day and age they are living in? Eighth Street is the gateway to Fernandina Beach and should be inviting and attractive to those who drive here to visit our community The Bur ger King is one of the few buildings and properties that provides a clean and inviting appearance. Many of the properties look unkept and resemble that of a ghetto. Rather than attack the property owners that are being responsible and doing what is good for the county/city they need to be going after the owners that ar e not maintaining their pr oper ties. We should be supporting Mrs. Armstrong by contacting our county commissioners or maybe we should have a local Burger King Day in Fernandina and Callahan. Patrick Orr Yulee S S t t . M M i i c c h h a a e e l l ( ( c c o o n n t t . ) ) Lets try a different approach to the alleged problems at St. Michaels. Why dont we let the people of St. Michaels and the city of Fernandina Beach solve their pr oblems. They both ar e smar t enough and capable of handling the situation. Mar y Ellen Corbin Fer nandina Beach In reference to the letter entitled St. Michael, the city and the newspa per which appeared in the NewsLeader April 25, ther e is a paragraph which states: Lets make a distinction. Some things are indeed internal church matt ers. Does a pastor preach orthodox e asy-to-understand ser mons? Does he b ring the comforts of religion to the sick and dying? Is he there for his people when they lose a job, when they go to jail, when they are abandoned, when they sin and need to be sought out with a merciful call to repentance? Is he visible; does he understand his peo-p le, their history and their culture? D oes he tr eat the rich no better than t he poor who have the same needs as the rich? T o clarify these questions: they ar e not now nor wer e they ever intended to imply that Father Jose, the pastor of St. Michael s chur ch, has ever failed in any of his obligations in this parish. H e is responsive to the needs of all t he parishioners. He has been awak e ned at 2 a.m. and gone out in response to the call. Father Jose is an excellent priest and tends to his parishioners in an understanding way that covers both the spiritual and pastoral duties. The intent was not to criticize our priest, but to show a difference of what the pastor does in the internal matters of the church, and what the city has asi ts responsibility. Therefore, in conclusion, I am officially apologizing to both Father Jose and any parishioners for statements perceived as intentional affronts to our pastor That was never my intention. Barbara Book Fernandina Beach W hat? Another letter about St. Michael? Her e s the latest update: I talked to an official at City Hall who said the church does not have to prove they have enough parking before they start the expansion! They can do all they want to do to our old historic chur ch and then addr ess the parking situation. At present, there is enough parking because they count the 48 spaces of valet parking. This only works on paper and there are no plans to actually test it. (This is the place wher e we have to cut down the 100-year-old magnolia tr ee because its in the way.) If this is the city law, then we need to change it. We are about to destroy the peace and quiet of a whole historic neighbor hood. Wheres the common sense? Joan Bean Fer nandina Beach As a parishioner of St. Michael s, I am saddened by the recent flurry of letters to the News-Leader regarding our church. One writer stated: The madness has to stop; indeed it must! The church is nothing other than the family of God. Obviously, some members of our family have disagr ee ments, as I suppose most families do fr om time to time, yet of course, such disagreements do not nor should reach the newspaper. e must learn to live together as br others or perish together like fools, Martin Luther King said. The Rev. Billy Graham once responded to a dissident: Y ou should keep sear ching for the perfect church and once you find it, join it and then it no longer will be perfect. One of this past Fridays letter writers had questions about what our pastor does. I have personally obser ved our pastor perform a baptism of a young child and an hour later preside over a funeral. I have seen after Mass, distressed people walk back, unannounced, to seek Fathers guidance or help, and never been denied. Our priest is on call 24/7 and, even getting a phone call late at night, has gone and given somebodys loved one their last rites, oftentimes to a person who hasn t been to church in 20-30 years. Fathe r is there for them. Father Jose is the s hepher d of our chur ch and celebrates M ass at least eight times per week, so yes, he is tending to his flock. What does Bishop Estevez say about the expansion of St. Michael and building a Mission Church in Yulee? The bishop has publicly suppor ted both pr ojects on numer ous occasions both verbally and in writing. Why expand the chur ch? I star ted going to Mass at St. Michael around the year 2001. Even 13 years ago, people often had to stand during Mass as ther e wer e not enough seats. Her e we are in the year 2014, can anybody deny the fact the population as well as tourism has not gr own in our commu nity? Just a week ago, St. Michael held a Vigil Mass on Saturday evening. Another Mass in the new and expanded Parish Hall at 8 a.m. along with a Mass at 8:30 a.m. in the chur ch for Spanish-speaking Catholics. The Spanish Mass was attended by folks who could not get into the hall because it was full. The 10 a.m. and noon Masses wer e again held at the Parish Hall and simultaneously at the church. I guess all these people found somewhere to park! The neighbors have been ver y sup portive and understanding of the family of God at St. Michael. What a nice neighbor hood. I am cer tain the neigh bors have been supportive since the church founding in 1872 (142 years publicly thank them! For some people, change is very hard to accept. In this case, a few people have done ever ything they know to thwart this expansion including going beyond r eason and civility I r ecall a couple of years ago, just after Father Jose became our pastor, a very lengthy parish survey was mailed to all registered parishioners. Father sought input from all parishioners and even had folks call those people who did not r etur n their sur vey so that they were reminded to respond. A vast majority of parishioners desir ed for the chur ch to be expanded! St. Michael is a wonderful place for people of the family of God to come and worship. But dont take my word for it, please come and see for yourself. Her s a tip, come early so you can get a seat. My response to dissidents would be to ask them to consider what we r ead from Luke 11:17, a house divide d against itself will fail. And maybe rer ead (above Billy Grahams r esponse to one of his dissidents as well as the statement from MLK.

I do find it nece ssary, however, to respond to the article written by Mr. Steve Nicklas that appeared in the April 23 edition of the News-Leader I find it very difficult to believe that a professional financial advisor would take such a short-term view of the financial situation in Nassau County. I t is well known and often written that my staff and I do not hold the same financial phil osophy as that of Clerk of Court John Crawford. Although there is a distinct difference of opinion as to how the Board of County Commissioners should address the current situation, there is no difference when it comes to the facts in this issue. It has been acknowledged and commented upon by the countys l ongtime financial advisor with RBC Capital Markets, our external auditor who prepares t he countys annual financial statements and more than one credit rating agency that our ad valorem taxing funds that provide funding for day-to-day operating expenses are structurally imbalanced. The shortfall in those funds is projected to be $10-$12 million in the upcoming fiscal year budget. T he Annual Financial Report, prepared by the external auditors and submitted by Clerk Crawford in March, does reflect reserves in e xcess of $40 million. What is not included in Mr. Nicklas opinion piece is t hat over $23 million of the $40 million is restricted by l aw and cannot be used to support day-to-day operating expenses. The remaining undesignated balance as reported by the auditors was $23.9 million. The board chose to use $4.5 million of the $23.9 million to balance the current year budget in l ieu of increasing the tax burden on our citizens. $10 million is currently designated for the new Sheriffs Administrative Building and $4.5 million is designated for the expansion and upgrades of the 911 emergency dispatch operations facility. Mr. Crawford has proposed using all onecent sales tax revenue to cover day-to-day operating expenses and balance the budget. T his certainly is an option for the board to consider but an estimated $7.5 million does not cover the entire shortfall and it does not address several serious needs that exist in the county today. The sales tax was originally implemented to support capital expenditures. A large portion of the one-cent revenue has been used in recent years in lieu of a millage increase to cover operational expenses. As a r esult, much needed capital expenditures such as pavement management and fleet replacement has been deferred. How long can the c ounty defer action in these critical areas? Our r oads are deteriorating and there is no money available to protect and preserve them to e xtend the life expectancy. Emergency service vehicles have been operating well beyond the p rojected useful life. Much of our heavy equipment in our Road and Bridge Department is also well beyond recommended replacement periods. Do you really want fire and rescue vehicles that are well beyond normal replacement cycles responding to your emergency? Is it wise to defer much-needed upgrades to our 911 dispatch system? This is the heart and soul of our public safety operations. Yes, onec ent money can be used to cover operating expenses but is this really a tradeoff we want to make? Mr. Nicklas predicts that our ad valorem revenue will increase by $1 million next year. Even the most optimistic estimates for future growth indicate that Nassau County is at least 5to 7-years from the growth necessary to generate $10$12 million in additional ad valorem t ax revenue to cover the current shortfall. Does anyone actually believe that other critical expenses such as insurance, fuel, electricity and health care will not increase over the same 5-7 year period? Can Nassau County continue to defer critical capital expenditures and capital maintenance? I certainly do not think this type of action is in the best interest of Nassau County citizens. Deferring capital projects and c apital maintenance will only magnify the problems and result in further deterioration of our infrastructure and increased costs in the f uture. Is this the legacy you want to leave for f uture generations? VIEWPOINT/ T ED S ELBY /N ASSAU C OUNTY M ANAGER How long can the county wait?

This time of year migratory birds a re passing through and visiting our feeders, and other birds are settling in to make their nests. Painted buntings are a special treat when they visit us in the spring and this year they seem to be here in droves, with many readers reporting seeing them for the first time. Male painted buntings look like gaudy clowns with their vivid blue, red a nd green coloration. The females and young are less colorful but still attractive little greenish birds that provide interest to our feeders. Painted buntings migrate through our area this time of year, heading to their breeding grounds in south central U.S., where they are cherished and protected. But sadly, they spend their winters in the C aribbean and Mexico and are often captured to be caged pets, which, along with h abitat destruction is leading to their decline in numbers. If you have buntings too, you might want to check out the Painted Bunting Observer Team website ( http://pbot. troynt.com/) where you can j oin other citizen scientists to help conserve them. S ome people are also reporting vivid blue indigo buntings at their feeders now too, while others are seeing similar, but lar ger, blue grosbeaks. Goldfinches, thrushes and house finches are also pass-i ng through many backyards this spring, a ll there for the curious naturalist to watch. I was writing this column when I got a message from my neighbors Ann and Dick McCarthy. There are buntings at our feeder all the time these last few days. Come on over and see them! I couldnt resist, and shut down my computer and walked down the str eet to visit them. I ts been awhile since Ive seen the M cCarthys backyard and I was amazed at t he bir d sanctuary it had become. They have four or five different bird feeders, all squirrel-proof and filled with fresh seeds of many varieties hanging near the shr ubs and har dwood tr ees in the empty lot behind them. A hummingbird feeder with fr esh nectar in fr ont of their por ch window a lso lured in its own contingent. Nearby a s mall koi pond with rushing water from a f ountain and enhanced with Louisiana irises and other aquatic plants provided habit for dragonflies and drinks for passing wildlife. All ar ound wer e native and or n a mental flowering plants adding color and aroma to the scene. All thought of finishing this column that day disappeared and instead I spent a happy hour or so in their backyard, relaxing on a chair and watching the bird show. First, a gaudy male painted bunting flew to one feeder, soon to be joined by a greenish female or sub-adult, difficult to tell t hem apart. And then an indigo bunting flew to the next feeder and vied for space with a cardinal pair. Occasionally a blue jay flew in and disrupted the scene but, after it had its own fill of seed, the buntings returned. The show continued, with birds taking their turns at the well-stocked feede rs. I could have stayed there all day! Its not only bird feeders that draw in m igratory spring birds, its our natural environment as well. Many birds visit us on along their travels to feed on the berries, seeds and insects found in the w oods, marshes and brush land around u s. If you walk the Greenway or the trails in Fort Clinch State Park and listen for b ird calls, you are likely to find bright yellow prothonotary warblers and other small warblers with distinctive markings as well. They may be dif ficult to spot but with a bit of patience trying to track down the birdst hat are calling, you can find them. P art of the fun of finding new birds is t rying to identify them. If you have photos of the birds you see, even those that arent quite professional you can always look them up in a bird book later. A good bird book to own for this task is the Sibley Field Guide to Birds of Eastern North America. The car eful drawing of each s pecies that point out identifying markings a nd the different plumages of males, f emales and juveniles has enough infor m ation for even a beginning birder to decipher. If you ar e going to under t ake the chal lenge of spotting spring migrating bir ds, youd better get at it. It is only a brief period befor e summer sets in and these bir ds h ave left us and moved into the places furt her north where they will nest and raise t heir families. But while they are here, be sure to enjoy the show! Pat Foster-Turley is a zoologist on Amelia Island.

A Yulee man is unfit to keep dogs, which he has used for fighting, according to Nassau C ounty Animal Control. The county has taken the m atter to Nassau County court, asking that it be allowed to keep t he seven dogs it seized from George R. Scoates. According to the legal complaint filed April 17, Animal Control officers made repeated v isits to the Radio Avenue residence of Scoates, where they s aid they found deplorable conditions related to the care, cust ody and living conditions of these animals. Officers witnessed certain circumstances and evidence that, taken together, led them to believe that these dogs were being kept for the purpose of training dogs for use in the illegal and cruel activity of dog f ighting, the complaint alleges. That included intravenous (IV from cages, consistent with well known practice for preparing fighting dogs, it stated. Officers also found skeletal remains appearing to be the bones of dogs on the premises and found a pen containing feral pigs, which are commonly used t o dispose of the remains of dead dogs killed in training or fighting, according to the complaint. Some of the dogs seized wer e described as animal aggressive, including Taj Mah al, a three-year-old male pit bull; Yogi, a 10-year-old male Rott-weiler; Scratchy, a two-yearold female pit bull; and Cujoe, a fiveto six-year-old male bulldog. I nvestigators found online photographs and magazines d escribing Scoates as being involved in illicit dog fighting a ctivities, including a photograph of Taj Mahal, who was described as his champion. Scoates warned officers when they seized Taj Mahal that the dog was extremely animal aggressive and warned that no a nimals should be in close contact to him. T wo of the dogs seized, a f ive-year-old female shepherd n amed Sheba and a two-yearo ld male Patterdale named Fat B oy, were described as human aggressive. Fat Boy was frightened and highly aggressive when taken into custody, the complaint stated. A five-year-old female Patterd ale, Bullet, also seized, was k ept as a breeder, according to the complaint, which asserted that Patterdales are commonly used as bait by those who train larger fighting breeds. A physical examination by a veterinarian on April 12 found a pattern of lack of proper andr easonable care for the animals, including deprivation of food, w ater, shelter and medical care, the complaint stated. T he dogs lacked required licenses and rabies vaccinations, it said. The complaint described Scoates as unable or unwilling or unfit to care for the dogs, and asked the court to allow N assau County to take ownership and dispose of the dogs as i t sees fit. Scoates could be r equired to pay for care of the a nimals while in county custody. T he county asked the court t o bar him from possession of other animals in the future. Scoates has not been charged with any crimes related to the alleged dog fighting. He w as arrested in a separate matt er April 2 and charged with poss ession of six pills of Adderall and six pills of Oxycontin without a prescription. 10A W EDNESDAY A PRIL 30, 2014 NEWS News-Leader CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK T IME CAPSULE On March 27, the N assau County Sheriffs Office was invited to p lace items into a Duval County Courthouse Time C apsule, which is to be opened in 2064, 50 years from now. Sheriff Bill Leeper represented NCSO and placed the f ollowing items into the capsule: A letter from L eeper to a future sheriff of Nassau County; a s houlder patch; lapel pin; challenge coin; information regarding NCSO; the Police Officers Bible; and an a utographed copy of his book, H ighway of Horror. S UBMITTED The crime rate dropped by 17.2 percent in Nassau County during 2013, Sherif f Bill Leeper announced. This r eduction is t he lowest since 2010. N assau County s crime rate c ontinues to be well below the statewide average of 4.7 percent. According to the Uniform Crime Report (UCR pr ovided by the Florida Department of Law E nforcement (FDLE t her e wer e 247 fewer crimes o verall in 2013 than 2012. While the Annual Crime Report marks a significant reduction in the local crime rate, it s extr e mely impor t ant to r emember that criminals adapt quickly to any effort made by law enforcement to combat crime, Leeper said. T hat is why it is vital that citizens continue to use crime prevention tools to help protect themselves, their families and their community Now is not the t ime to let up on efforts, but i nstead is the time to apply even m ore aggressive pressure to make sure a strong message is sent to criminals and there is continued reduction in the crime rate, he said. I am ver y pleased that crime in Nassau County is cont inuing its downward trend. T her e ar e several key r easons f or this success, including our valuable partnerships with other law enforcement agencies and the community; our proactive appr oach to solving crime tr ends before they become an issue; and the fact that we work hard every day to prove to the people of Nassau County thatw e are committed to excellence, said Leeper. Nassau County continues to be a safe place to live, work, raise a fam ily and visit on vacation. H ere are some of the ways c itizens can help law enfor ce m ent drive down crime: Lock your car and keep valuables out of view. Start or join a Neighborhood Watch program. Mentor a child.

Robinson, who was killed in 1891 while assisting other deputies and Fernandina Beach police officers apprehend a violent fugitive in the c ity. Patrol Deputy Everett E.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Am e lia run and gun redfish"What is your favorite game fish?" UCF Professor Chuck Dziuban asked while making a long cast with a noisy surface plug. "I have sentimental ties with freshwater largemouth bass," I replied. "Summer kingfish are great fun when they make skyrocketing leaps. Summer tarpon will always find a way in my heart, but redfish are simply my favorite gamefish. "Every day there is a new challenge when targeting back country redfish. The day you think you have solved the challenge for catching redfish is the day you need to start all over again. Not to say they are not fun to catch once hooked in shallow water." After 15 minutes of casting topwater plugs to a variety of flood tide redfish cover, including spartina marsh islands and flooded oyster bars, Dziuban had just one small sea trout to show for his many years of redfishing. It was time to move further up the river. "I typically redfish with Capt. Scott Tripp on Mosquito Lagoon," Dziuban said. "It's a short drive from Orlando and Capt. Scott is a wonderful captain. I have also been looking forward to redfishing here at Amelia Island with my wife Judy. We have vacationed here a few times, but never had the opportunity to fish for Amelia Island redfish." Next stop was a boat dock further up Bell's River, where a falling tide was exposing mud banks and prime redfish habitat. Power poling down on the up-current side of a prime boat dock Dziuban was soon casting a led head jig and Berkley Gulp shrimp combo into prime ambush locations of the boat dock. After missing strikes on a pair of dock game fish, Dziuban hooked a pair of redfish, which were released back into the tannic-stained waters of Bell's River. "We have experienced heavy rains during the past few weeks," I explained to the fishing "professor." "As you can see, the water is very dark due to the heavy rains and has also slowed down our backwater fishing. However, the old saying, The fish are biting somewhere,' is certainly true when there has been more than average rainfall." At the end of our morning of chasing the tides for redfish, we navigated a shallow Langsford Creek mud flat and bumped into a small school of r edfish. "Chuck, there is a nice school of redfish holding right in that shallow slough," I pointed out. "The water is still very stained so let's switch to a spinner bait so the flash and vibration we'll hopefully get their attention." A perfect cast produced a nice three-pound Amelia Island redfish that was soon r eleased. Minutes later a seven-pound redfish swallowed Dziuban's spinner and was pulling drag from his brand new spinning combo. A wide smile filled the fishing professor's face when I secured his big red with a pair of Fish Grippers, followed by a quick photo and r elease. "I really like the challenges of Amelia Island red fishing," Dziuban said. "Certainly you have to fish a variety of ways while targeting a variety of different structures. Also the big tides make it more of a challenge. Also Amelia Island does not have the fishing pressure that we often experience while fishing Mosquito Lagoon." I have to admit that guiding a client who consistently fishes on one of the world's most renowned redfish destination, "Mosquito Lagoon," was one of my top guiding challenges, particularly when r ecent heavy rains had drastically slowed down the backcountry fishing here at Amelia Island. Amelia Island is one of North America's finest resort destinations and places to live. In my opinion our redfish waters are world class too. During the Nassau Sport Fishing Association's meeting and cover dish dinner April 23, winners of the 16th annual NSFA Drum Tournament were honored.

W e started with lunch sitting ar ound the dining room table that was decoratedw ith seashell plates and b right balloons in ocean colo rs. Each young mer maid was served a sandwich that looked like a crab. A cr oissant with sandwich makings inside was decorated with strawberry claws and cream cheese eyes. There was ocean blue Jell-o, of course. Too much fun. W e all par ticipated in activities. First we made clothespin mer maid dolls. Pink, r ed and yellow hair, green mermaid tails and we added our own details. Then we decorated flowerpots and each mermaid got to take home a decorated pot and a package of seeds to plant. Josie, sharing your bir th day made me r emember bir thdays of long ago. Our birthday parties were not girly, they were all boy. Miniature golf was a favorite of your Dads. One time we had a magician come and that was a great hit. Maybe the most unusual and memorable was the party wher e the guest of honor was a boa constrictor. It seems like we had more than one party at a pizza place where all the employees came dancing out and sang Happy Birthday. Six is so gr own up. We had a chance for a grandmother to granddaughter talk and exploring what you want to be. First a scientist. You always are looking for creatures and are fascinated with all gr owing things. Then we talked about what a good ar tist you are so you could be an artist too. You like your dance class and might also be an entertainer. Well, why not do it all? How special sharing your special day So pr oud.

Friday Mar ch 25 Solution Wild Nite for Saving Manatees The ninth and final Wild Nite of the Wild Amelia Festival 2014 Festival series will feature the topic of Saving Manatees. T he program will begin at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 13, and will be held at the Peck Center auditorium at 516 S. 10th St. The pro-g ram is free and open to the public. Guest speakers will be Craig Miller, curator of mammals at t he Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, and Nadia Gordon, marine mammal research biologist for the Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission,. Since 2006, the Jacksonville Zoos Marine Mammal Response Team has been collaborating with and assisting the Florida Fish a nd Wildlife Conservation commission to rescue manatees. Now, the zoo is about to build a manatee critical care and reha-b ilitation facility. At this Wild Nite, learn about this new facility, which will provide increased capacity for manatee care in F lorida and will enable the FWCs northeast region to operate more effectively; and hear stories of manatee rescues and research. Miller has been with the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens since 1992 and established the Marine Mammal Response Team in J uly 2006. Gordon has been with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission since 2010 and had worked for thez oo for six years before that, coordinating the response team with Miller. T he manatee is Wild Amelias featured critter of the year selected in part because of the devastating mortality which plagued Florida manatees in 2013. Over 800 manatees succumbed to red tide, brown tide, boat strikes and cold shock last year. Yet Miller and Gordon will offer some good news about t he manatees future at this upcoming Wild Nite. The Wild Nites nature forum series is held on the second Tuesday of each month and is only one of the year-round educ ational efforts of Wild Amelia, whose mission is to protect the wildlife and wild places of Amelia Island through education. For more information on Wild Amelia, visit www.wildamelia.com or the Wild Amelia Facebook page. The 8th annual Wild Amelia Nature Festival will be held from May 16-18. Registration for e cotours and nature photography classes is ongoing.
