Daniel Wright, 32, was arrested after Fer nandina Beach detectives said h e confessed to an i nappropriate relat ionship with a 17year-old senior during the past school year. The student has since graduated. W right s pr e de cessor Stephen Brian Turner, 48, r emains incar cerat e d after his 2010 conviction for having sex with a minor. Accor d ing to a city police report, police became aware of Wrights involvement in a potential crime in April when a par ent of two Fer nandina Beach High School students told police of a rumor regarding an inappropriater elationship between W right and a stu d ent. A police detective subsequently interviewed both Wright and the student, but both adamantly denied any inappropriate relationship, the report stated. The detective was unable to uncover any additional infor mation or evidence to warrant an arrest at the time, the r epor t stated. O n June 12, police r eceived mor e infor m ation regarding the relationship from Courtney Wright, the accused teachers wife, and her sister, Shannon Strumlaugh, who was also a teacher at Fernandina Beach High School. Strumlaugh told police she had received a call from a former students m other, who said she had seen Wright a nd the student in Wrights vehicle. S trumlaugh shared this information with Courtney Wright, who subsequently confronted her husband, accor ding to the police r epor t. Wright reportedly admitted to his wife that he had become involved in ar elationship with the student and acknowledged having sexual relations with her, but said the relationship occurred after her 18th birthday. Courtney Wright reportedly called the student to confront her with the infor mation, and the student admitted being sexually involved with Wright since Febr uar y. The student was inter viewed by police Friday and allegedly confir med the sexual relationship with Wright began in February. She told police there were two sexual encounters occurring before her 18th birthday. She also admitted the r elationship con tinued beyond her graduation from high school last month. According to the report, Wright came voluntarily to the police depar tment on Monday to explain his involvement and give his account of the alleged relationship.

This reflects a 4 percentage p oint increase from 2013, according to a recent AAA Consumer Pulse survey on summer travel plans. This marks the third consecutive year that AAA d ata shows a steady summer travel season in F lorida a positive sign for the travel i ndustry said Jessica Brady, AAA Travel, The Auto Club Group. Although theme parks, beach getaways and city d estinations top 2014s summer travel list, the majority of people havent finalized their vacation plans. Travelers who wait until the last minute to b ook their hotel, rental car or airline ticket can expect t o pay more than if they book weeks in advance. Just as travel demand is expected to incr ease this summer, the cost to vacation could also rise if you do not have a plan, Bradya dded. T he majority of travelers ( 59 percent) plan to spend $1,500 or less on travel in the next three months. Mor e than half (62 percent) will pay for a hotel during a summer vacation, while 36 per cent will cut c osts by staying with family a nd friends. A lthough only 35 percent plan to rent a car this summer, nearly three in five travelers (57 percent) plan to drive at least five hours to get to their destination or for sightsee i ng. Floridians ar e for tunate b ecause most destinations like beaches and theme parks ar e within a one day drive, said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA The Auto Club Group. Gasoline prices are begin-n ing to let up just in time f or the busy summer driv ing season. Pump prices ar e not expected to have a negative impact on travel plans. Consumers who use an AAA travel agent to help plan their vacation can save up to 35 percent on average with hotel, rental car and inclusive packaging no matter the destination.

On the day he was led into a Nassau County Judicial A nnex courtr oom in a r ed jumpsuit and shackles to accept the negotiated plea agr e ement with the State Attor neys Office, he got a lecture from Circuit Court Judge Rober t Foster who told T u r n er if it were up to him the former t eacher would never see the l ight of day I dont particularly like doing this, Mr. Turner, Foster said in open cour t I think your e getting off way too easy. Your conduct was disgraceful and inexcusable. ... Though I am tempted to reject the pleaa nd order a trial, I recognize t hat would be a great disservi ce to the victim and her mother. Before you go off to prison, I wish I had the ability to stick you in a stockade at your (former) high school so the stu dents and teachers could walk by and see. The victim told authorities a t the time that she and Turner h ad been involved in a relat ionship for two years and that a sexual relationship developed more than a year prior to the report, according to the sheriffs office. During that time, T urner allegedly bought the v ictim a cell phone, jewelr y and w as in the process of buying her a ring. T u rner is to serve three years of sex offender probation, followed by two years of probation, upon his release from prison. He is also nowp ermanently designated as a s exual offender and forbidden f rom unsupervised contact with minors. His victim s mother str u g gled with her health in the aftermath of her daughter and T ur ner s r e lationship. After his sentencing, she said, This is a victory for my famil y, but I want it to be a wake-up c all for the school system. She urged tougher state legislation so all teachers ar e scr u tinized in a way that no teacher can get away with something like this.

At present, Station 90 works out of a building on River Road owned by the Hilliard volunteer department. T he county maintained a lease agreement with the townsd epartment and for years the career staff and the volunteers w orked out of the shared facility. That stopped in October when the county ended its contracts with the volunteer departm ents. The county also stopped paying its $750 monthly leasea greement in October, though it still pays utilities. The county once had plans to spend almost $130,000 to upgrade Station 90, but the board abandoned that idea earl ier this year, deciding instead to use the money to buy land and b uild its own place. The county has budgeted $127,000 for the building project, including $50,553 for the land and survey work, though officials expect the cost to rise. The county is planning to pay f or the project using fire rescue impact fees. That account curr ently holds $400,553, according to the countys budget office. The countys Facilities M aintenance Department is managing the project and doing t he bulk of the work. Director Bob Knott said he e xpects the new station to be completed in August. ere well under way, but let people know that it will be a seamless transition, said Knott. K nott said work for the new Station 90 included clearing about 1,000 trees and then grading and leveling the land. The facility includes a doublewide trailer for living space and a 24by 36-foot metal utility building for bunker equipment. The facility will also have a watert ank and metal carport to house the truck. The buildings are interconnected by a platform and thatll be an easy transition, said Knott. Itll be quick to the truck and then theyre gone.

The county is spending $ 4,200 to send commissioners to the program, and another $4,000 for staff to participate, according to the county managers office. The county spent $7,663 in annual membership dues this year. FAC is a lobbying group a nd provides educational programs for elected officials and county staff. The group represents officials in all of the states 67 counties and also offers group purchasing programs. During the conference, commissioners are planning to f ulfill a state mandate for ethics training. In 2013, lawmakers passed new ethics legislation requiring commissioners and other c onstitutional officers to take f our hours of ethics programm ing each year. The program covers public records and Sunshine laws as well as workshops on ethics. Local commissioners also a re receiving certification certificates. C ommissioner Steve Kelley will graduate from the organizations Advanced County Commissioner (ACCogram and Commissioner Pat Edwards will graduate from its Certified County Commissioner (CCCogram. Commissioner Barry H olloway is the organizations first vice president and will serve as president-elect next year. The cost of his hotel room is being paid by FAC since he is part of the groups executive committee. The group is staying at the Hilton Orland Bonnet Creek in Orlando and is being charged $155 per night, plus resort fees and parking. Holloway was instr umental in bringing the FACs legisla-t ive conference to the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort next year. C ounty Attorney David Hallman, Public Works D irector Scott Herring and Engineer Jonathan Page are also attending the conference. County Manager Ted Selby is on a vacation scheduled more than a year ago and will not attend the conference. Assistant County Manager Shanea Jones, who is also d irector of the Office of Management and Budget, will attend instead. Jones has attended previous programs. When I first started attending the meetings I thought I would be the youngest person there by 10 years, but Im not, said Jones, 32, who first began working for the county in 2001 as an office clerk while attending high school, according to the county s human resource department.

In 1931, James Truslow Adams defined the American dream as life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity f or each according to ability or achievement, regardless of s ocial class or both. Maybe the toughest decision talented individuals have to make early in their careers is whether to p ursue an opportunity t o take a position which plays to their passion, especially if it means they m ay have to sacrifice s ecurity and/or compensation. For example, back in the 1950s Heisman trophy winner Dick Kazmaier of P rinceton decided to forgo a c areer in professional football because he stated, I knew I could make more money in business. While we cant imagine that taking place in todays world, it brings up a very interesting subject. Dow e still want to be the land of opportunity? U nlike what Mr. Adams wrote, back in the 1940s, 50s, s and even s, there were many individuals who, because they were the wrong color, gender or ethnic persuasion, never got the opportunity to select their area of choice because that arena was not open to them. E ven after Jackie Robinson was selected by the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1946, the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees and St. Louis Cardinals did not have a black player until the late 1950s. While less obvious, in business there were major companies that w ould not give women and black men an opportunity to perform at important managerial positions. One example among many was Planters Peanuts. They did not have a black manager or executive in their organization until 1977. In addition, while Thurgood Marshall, a famous black civil rights attorn ey, was appointed to the U.S. S upreme Court in 1967, it was 1 981 when Ronald Reagan appointed the first woman, Sandra Day OConnor. In fact, I saw the s as making the promise of opportunity for alla reality. On the opposite side of Dick Kazmaier is Peggy Stanton, formerly of Amelia Island, who always follows her passion for opportunity. Originally she made the decis ion, in 1964, to leave a broadcasting job to come to Washington, D.C., with $2,000 in the bank, because that was where she thought the opportunities were. First she took a job with Multi Media as a White House correspondent. Two years later she got her d ream job as ABC-TVs first female news correspondent in Washington, again covering the White House. Since then Peggy, in addition to marrying longtime Congressman Bill Stanton and bringing up a daughter, continued to write articles for papers like the Washington Post (and, when she lived here, the NewsL eader ) She also wrote a b ook about how faith impacte d famous people like Don Shula and President Gerald Ford and had paintings featured in a one-woman exhibit in Washington, D.C. N ot finished yet, you can still catch her weekly radio s how, Power From the P ews, on Ave Maria radio. P eggys father, a very successful advertising executive, set the standar d Despite having a wife and four children, he gave up that position to follow his passion as a university pr ofessor at half the salar y. Fortunately, he also had tale nt and, at the apex of a suc c essful car e er at Mar quette, he was awarded the Silver Medal for his achievements. How things have changed. A few weeks ago, when Jill Abramson was fir ed as the editor of the New Y ork Times, the big issue was no longer the gr eat oppor tunity to b ecome the first female editor of the New York Times, but fairness in pay. The big story, discussed for days on the major networks, although denied by Ms. Abramson, was that she was fired because she demanded pay equal to h er predecessor. This really got my attention. More and m ore we seem to be discussing fairness rather than opportunity. It is one thing to be discussing equal pay of unskilled factory workers and front-line workers and another to discuss equal pay for e xecutives. In my world, you strive for the opportunity to g et that dream job knowing that, if you are successful, the rewards will either come or you will find a better opportunity. The truth is what always differentiated us from many o ther countries and where, I believe, we should keep our f ocus is as Mr. Adams stated, opportunity. In Mexico a young friend of mine who is a terrific golfer remains a caddy because there are no opportun ities as a golf pro. In fact, m any college graduates in Mexico remain servers in restaurants because there are so few opportunities in management. What worries me is a lessening of opportunity. With the cost of educationb ecoming so high, student loans so intimidating and f ewer good jobs for graduates, more and more capable y oung people may forego their passion and opportunity to take a safe job where they can at least make a decent salary. This, I feel, is unfortun ate. When there is less o ppor tunity ther e is greater f r u stration and people begin to focus on regulating fairness.

Even though the U.S. economy has been growing at a snails pace for the last few years, its growth rate has slackened recently. In other words, the snail h as slowed its crawl. While emerging from the Great Recession has been brutally challenging, the U.S. economy is recovering more slowly than normal. And this subpar and suspect recovery apparently has hit a slow-speed bump. T he International Monetary Fund (IMF this week that it is reducing its growth forecast for the U.S. economy this year by a pretty substantial amount. Even though a reduction from 2.8t o 2.0 percent doesnt seem like much, it is significant in true percentage terms (it is more than a 25 percent drop, to be exact). The IMF carries a lot of clout. It represents 188 coun-t ries and works persistently to promote economic cooperat ion and stability around the world. T he most significant implication of the IMF announcement pertains to the Federal Reserve. With the paltry economic growth within the U.S.,t he Fed may have to prolong i ts stance of zero percent intere st rates. The Fed adopted the draconian position in an attempt to stimulate the economy, knocked to its knees by the financial collapse of 2008-9. By pushing down inter est rates a nd keeping them down the F ed has made money cheaper a nd more attainable for consumers and businesses. However, an onslaught of federal regulation pertaining to lending and banking and commer ce (not to mention the ramifications of Obamacare) h as inadvertently slowed the r ecover y It has become mor e d ifficult and cumbersome for people to get loans and for businesses to operate, for instance. The low interest rates create d by the Feds action have also impacted savers, who rely on bank certificates and shortterm bonds f or return and income. This obviously has become a failed strategy. The IMF, while leaving its 2015 forecast in place for 3 percent growth in U.S., also statedt hat it does not expect full employment to be reached in this country until 2017. This will occur under the umbrella of low inflation. Momentum faded in the U.S. economy early this yeard ue to a harsh winter, a sluggish housing market and slowe r demand, IMF economists wrote. While a rebound is u nder way, its providing only a partial offset to the weakness that led to a contraction in the first quarter, they wrote. The IMF forecast comes l ess than a week after the W orld Bank reduced its 2014 g rowth forecast for the U.S., to 2.1 percent from 2.8 percent. Private economists have also lowered their forecasts this month. So its sort of unanimous. Meanwhile, the U.S. g rowth rate (at 2 percent) r anks 22nd among major glob a l economies. This is hardly an impressive showing. The fastest growing economy continues to be China, at 7.4 percent. Close behind are Malaysia and Pakistan. The U.S., at its snail-like pace,c omes in behind even Saudi A rabia (4 per cent), T urkey (4.3 p ercent) and Chile (2.6 percent). Now, thats hardly esteemed company. Even for a mollusk.

ANGELA DAUGHTRY News-Leader A job that just fell in his lap led Corey Staver to a succ essful and rewarding career helping those with work i njuries get their lives back on track. Staver, 52, is owner of David Corey Company, a home modification business with its main office in the historic schoolhouse on Atlantic Avenue. The f irm works with insurance companies to provide housing mod-i fications for people throughout the country who have had c atastrophic injuries on the job, and who face a lifetime of permanent disability. Staver says his firm is different from other accessibility c ontractors because it evaluates each client individuallyf rom a medical standpoint, and because it provides transp arency for every penny spent, rather than burying mark-ups in the bill. If youre injured on the job, the companys insurance policy provides for handicap-accessible housing, Staver said. The insurance company hires us to do the assessment based on the clients specific diagnosis a nd disabilities. Every state manages their w orkers compensation policy differently, Staver says. Its up to our interpretation of medical necessity. We call it functional necessity. The home-modification business is unregulated, and any b uilding contractor can modify h omes for insurance compan ies, Staver says. Construction has to follow building codes, but there is no national standar d (for home modifications for the disabled) and no specific license, he says. That lack of regulation can lead to contractors paddingt he bill and adding home modi fications that ar e unnecessar y a nd inappr o priate for the disabled client, Staver says. Insurance companies look for an accessibility contractor, but that could be anyone, Staver says. A lot of contractors see it as a way to get morem oney out of a job. I n contrast, Staver s compa n y requires his contractors to go through special training that helps them standar d ize the work done on homes and r eg ulate pricing. e have the ability to justify the pricing, Staver says. We look at the big picture. We control the scope upfront andc ontrol the pricing with an estimating system. O riginally from California, Staver came to Fernandina Beach 15 years ago to be with his ailing mother and stepfather. A trained occupational t herapist, Staver began working with his stepfather, who hada construction/restoration business in Jacksonville. Later, he b egan working with a man who had a large workers compensation management company. That just fell in my lap, Staver says. For the next three y ears, he says he learned a lot of what was wrong with work-e rs compensation. He eventually combined that knowle dge with his construction and occupational therapy backg round, and created the David C orey Company, Inc. about eight years ago. T he company has been steadily growing, with about3 50 home modifications nationally this year, Staver said, and a f ew jobs outside the United States. The average-size job costs $75,000 to $100,000, but some minor modification jobs run $14,000-$15,000. M odifications can be as small as adding grab bars to a home,u p to complete home construction. T he company employs four occupational therapists that do client assessments, and insurance companies fly them out to where the jobs are, Staver said. A ll therapists are required to be licensed as assistive tech-n ology professionals. e modify the home to fit t he person, rather than force them to fit the home, Staver s ays. They can have a new s ense of independence in their h ome. Clients with workers compensation injuries can r ange from quadriplegics who need breathing machines, to t hose with chronic pain. Most work-related injuries are car accidents that happen while driving for an employer, Staver said. S taver and partner Lauren Underhill in 2011 also branched i nto providing medical supplies directly from the wholesaler to c ut costs further, with a new sister company called CorLife. It cuts out the middleman, Staver says. We built the same transparency model with our products. We want show people what really is reasonable. Its not as much as a niche, but its much bigger, Staver s ays. It will end up dwarfing the business we do have. A nother brand in development is creating modular home designs for the disabled. eve created some designs for homes, Staver said, and labeled them Free Life Homes. We may make them a vailable to insurance companies, and could also make them a vailable for the aging-in-place p opulation.

These are the typical pleadings of people hoping to fix a failing relationship. The mayors of Hilliard and Callahan are u sing these sentiments now in efforts to salvage their ailing association with Nassau County officials over fire service. Hilliard Mayor David Buchanan and Callahan Mayor Shirley Graham say they want to sign a new agreement with the county for fire protection. T he county cancelled their contracts in October after decades of service, though the county still has an agreement with Nassau Oaks Volunteer Fire Department in Callahan. Theyve got a tanker truck and the county needs to bring water to fires on the West Side b ecause hydrants are scarce. The county said goodbye to the contracts, saying that the volunteer departments in both towns did not have compliance from the Florida Bureau of Fire Standards and Training. B ut they have it now and the county board knows it. Hilliard received certification in March. Callahan r eceived certification in February, according to theb ureau, which is part of the State Fire Marshals Office. We did what they wanted and made changes, said Buchanan. What else do they want? Money. T he county board wants the people in Hilliard and Callahant o pay for fire service. Theyre serious. They hired a lawyer l ast year to see how much they should potentially charge. It came out to $217 per person annually. County officials have said t hey welcome volunteer service but maintain that it is note nough to offset the cost of service from the countys fire r escue. And, they have said, its not fair to the taxpayers in the unincorporated areas of the county who do pay. County Manager Ted Selby f ormally notified the towns in April that the county has beeno ffering fire suppression, fire prevention, fire investigat ions, public fire safety education and response to other emerg encies, as needed, without p roper payment and it has got to stop. While no one is letting anyones house burn down, there have been threats by the volunteers that they will take their equipment and sell it. A couples counselor might boil the argument down to this: O ne side is too demanding and the other is a freeloader. However the situation is defined, the relationship is dysfunctional and it is costing county taxpayers money. Fire Chief Matt Graves says he needs to hire three firefighters to staff the countys o nly tanker truck at Station 40 in Hilliard at a salary of $37,642 each because he cant rely on the volunteers to bring water on their tanker. In an April 30 request to the county manager, Graves said hes spending too much on overtime and the additional staff is n eeded given the demand for service and the lack of reliable volunteer forces. He said the truck has responded to 131 calls for service since the volunteer contracts were cancelled and that 114 oft hem were for fire service. He also asked to promote t hree firefighters to engineer. He did not list their salaries, but he put the annual collective overtime at $249,660. The board was scheduled to consider his request at the June 9 meeting, but it was removed from the agenda hours before the 6 p.m. start. Commissioners d ecided to wait for Selby to return from vacation so he could participate in the discussion. Selby has outlined three solutions for this situation and sent them to Buchanan and Callahan Town Manager Michael Williams in a letter dated April 21. They include: 1 Have property owners pay through a Municipal ServiceT axing Unit (MSTU 2. Have the towns pay coll ectively. 3. Have the towns provide their own fire protection service. e dont like any of those c hoices, said Buchanan. We dont think we need to payb ecause we provide volunteers. The county doesnt see t hings as quite so balanced. While Selbys letter did not say how much the towns should pay, there has been talk of tying the payment to the fire s ervice millage rate of 1.6, said Buchanan. So whats that, $1.60 or so for every $1,000 of a homes v alue? said Buchanan. We need to meet. Buchanan has proposed July. He and Graham have asked the five members of the county b oard to meet with them for a summertime sit-down. O n June 9, they mailed letters to each commissioner using t heir home address and certified mail delivery. W hy send the letters to the house? e want to take the politics o ut of this, said Buchanan. Did you invite the county m anager or county attorney? No. We dont want them t here, said Buchanan. The letter asks for a meeting between the town council of both communities, the county board and Nassau County S heriff Bill Leeper. Buchanan said he wants the s heriff to attend because his department handles emergency d ispatch calls across the county. At a minimum, the agenda would include an interlocal agreement between the respect ive towns and the county They ask that the meeting b e held on the West Side so that affected citizens will have a g ood opportunity to attend it. Why should commissioners meet with you? I go back to value, said Buchanan. There are times w hen we need the county and there are times when the coun-t y needs us. We need to get our relationship back on track.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 7A W EDNESDAY J UNE 18, 2014 OPINION News-Leader VOICE OF THE PEOPLE D D a a v v i i d d L L e e v v y y Y Y u u l l e e e e On June 11-12 the Amelia IslandFernandina Restoration Foundation i n collaboration with the Tourist D evelopment Council, the city of F ernandina Beach and the Amelia I sland Museum of History together with Mayor Ed Boner, County Commissioner Danny Leeper State Sen. Aaron Bean and U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson celebrated the installation of a br onze sculptur e of David Levy Y ulee at the historic railr oad depot n ow being restored at the foot of C entre Street June 12 was the 204th a nniversary of the birth of the man called the Father of Florida Statehood and the Father of Florida Railroads. I would like to acknowledge Gil Langley and the TDC and John Cotner and Clayton Buchanan fort heir contributions, as well as City M anager Joe Gerrity and the city c ommission for joining, together with the TDC and the Foundation, in the funding of the restoration of the depot. I thank Phyllis Davis, Gray Edenfield, Harry Green and the staf f of the Amelia Island Museum of Histor y for their efforts. A lso I express thanks to the memb ers of the Amelia Island-Fer nand ina Restoration Foundation, both p ast and pr e sent, whose contribu tions fully funded the statue of David Levy Yulee. To sculptor Susan Luer y for her r emarkable work, our inestimable gratitude. The Florida Times-Union at the time of his death in October of 1886 said the late Hon. David Levy Yulee has had probably a larger influence upon the character and develop ment of the State, and played a larger par t in its histor y than any other man. The state of Florida designated David Levy Yulee as a Great Floridian in 2000. David Levy Yulee platted the new Fernandina, todays Centre Street historic district, in 1857, planning to make Fernandina the Manhattan of the South. Upon the granting of statehood to Florida he was elected to serve as one of Florida s first two United States sen ators. Yes, Yulee actively preached the sanctity of states rights, supported secession and encouraged the seizure of federal forts in Florida before he resigned from the U.S. Senate, which became the basis of the charge of treason against him at the end of the Civil W ar Y es, the Florida Railr oad beginning in 1855 and during its construction used slaves as did virtually every construction project and railroad built in the South before the Civil War. We all now abhor the American practice of slaver y It was, however patently an American institution. Four of the first five American pr esidents owned slaves while they were president: Washington, Jefferson, Madison and Monroe. Of the next five presidents four owned slaves, two while president: Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren (in NewY ork), W illiam Henr y Har rison (in Virginia) and John Tyler. James K. Polk and Zacher y T aylor owned slaves while pr esident. And both Andr ew Johnson and Ulysses S. Grant at one time owned slaves. So, 12 of our presidents owned slaves and eight of them owned slaves while president. To a greater or lesser extent we celebrate the lives and achievements of these men. As historians acknowledge, the narratives of the lives of individuals must be understood within the framework of the times in which they lived. As it is in the case of four of our Founding Fathers and the other presidents listed above, the chr onicle of David Levy Y ulee s life, his endeavors, accomplishments and transgr essions, must be taken as a whole and understoodi n the context of the times and place i n which he lived. It may well be true, as the Fernandina Mirror asserted in October 1886, that it is not too much to say that Florida owes more to Mr Y u lee than to any other citizen of the State. Again, thank you to all who par ticipated in the commemoration of David Levy Yulees contributions to Fernandina Beach. Adam Kaufman Pr esident Amelia Island-Fernandina Restoration Foundation H H o o w w t t o o k k i i l l l l a a n n i i s s l l a a n n d d Our city and county governments seem determined to do all they can to destroy our once beautiful island. How? Thr ough thr ee avenues: Kill the economy by discourag ing tourists: make the entrance to the island as ugly as possible with strip malls lining both sides; cr eate a six-lane highway that will sud d enly r educe to four lanes at the b ridge and then, when the travelers are really tired on a Friday afternoon, the two lanes drop to one. Make the economic climate so dif ficult for storeowners that half the shops on Centr e Str e et are put out of business. T ourists like to shop empty stor efronts will encourage them to go somewhere else for their next vacation. Increase the ugliness by cutting down as many trees as possible, paving as much ground as possible for parking and installing huge, ugly concrete pylons so the wealthy folks at the south end of the island wont be inconvenienced by a power outage. Tourists can choose where to spend their money; we need to attract rather than repulse them. Kill the spirit: put all development money into strip malls and road widening. Ignore the waterfr ont a potentially really attractive feature. Build a bigger police/sheriffs office and keep money for education disturbingly low to ensure that our children receive a mediocres chool experience at best. Waste any discretionary funds on lawsuits r ather than feeding the hungry and h ousing the homeless. Elect offic ials who pray on an issue and decide battered women and their childr e n are not worth our support. Kill the environment: this is a barrier island. The only thing that helps keep us anchor ed her e ar e the tr ees and plants. These ar e being removed, systematically, at a n alar ming rate. The next big blow m ay take much of the island with it. Allowing more development in the wetlands will hasten our demise. Destruction of trees and plants means destruction of the habitat for our bir ds and wildlife, which will also pr ovide a negative draw for tourists. Add these all up and, on our p r esent course, our futur e shows a barren, concrete-covered, sand dune ready for the next big hurricane to destroy it.

On behalf of the students, faculty and staff of Fernandina Beach High School, we thank you for your continued support and commitment to academic excellence. Sarah Coombs Guidance Counselor/ AP Coor dinator Fer nandina Beach High School Welcome mat is always out Only one son and daughter-in-law were visiting at Uncle Jamies home when I arrived, prepared to kill a couple of hoursb etween my blood work and doctors appointment. But before I left, a daughter, t wo sons-in-law two granddaughters and one friend had stopped in. One r e ason might have been that Aunt Sarah, Jamie s wife, wasn t feeling well, and everybody wanted to check on her. But nobody needs a reason to visit my mothers brother my last surviving uncle and hisw ife of 65 years. T hat s just the way things have always b een at the Stevens home. When Jamie and Sarah say, Yall come to see us, theyr e not just thr owing out one of those worn-out Southern expressions. They mean it. And if Queen Elizabeth d ropped by, theyre liable t o kiss her right on the m outh, even though, as Michelle Obama was r e minded, nobody should lay hands, much less lips, on the queen. Jamie and Sarah had six children: three girls and three boys. He br ought in the bacon for t hat brood, working as a supervisor at a General Motors plant, and she cooked it. Jamie was also a horse trad er who didn t have any horses, but who always had an automobile hed sell at a good price. One time he had a 1975 Dodge for sale for $2,000. And he had a man in Atlantaw ho wanted to buy it. Then he saw a notice o n a bulletin boar d at an Atlanta hospital: F or sale, a 1976 Dodge, slant-six engine, low mileage, $2,000. I can buy this one, he thought to himself, and have two Dodges for sale, and this one is a later model. He started taking down the phone number on the card andr ealized it was his phone number Sarah had put the notice on the bulletin board without telling him. I was getting ready to buy my own car Jamie said. By the way Sarah, he said, thats a 1975 Dodge, and Ive got it sold already. Jamie has always been able to make something out of nothing. He bought an old, dilapidated, leaky inboar d boat that could have been piloted by Humphrey Bogar t in The African Queen and actually got it running. I took it out a couple of times, not sur e Id r eturn. He turned a Merita bread truck into a camper and called it his Meritabago. He converted a storage house into his man cave, complete with framed photos and certificates from his ser vice on the city council. If Jamie couldnt do it himself, he knew someone who could. But the best thing he and Sarah have going for them is a loving family wholl be ther e whether theyr e needed or not. And no matter what your stage of life whether kith or kin youll be welcome. What greater blessing to give thanks for at a family gathering, writer Rober t Brault said, than the family and the gather ing. That means Jamie and Sarahs cup overflows with thanksgiving.

Some elected representatives cant decide which is preferable, a root canal or scrutinizing p ages of numbers, seemingly endless and almost always a little disappointing. I thoughtw ed have more revenue this year is a common theme, or Does it really cost that much? B udget time, too, finds a diminishing number of meeting attendees. Those interested in non-issue issues tend to spend more time at the beach and even the enthusiasm of local government hobbyists, or groupies those individuals w ho devote themselves completely to monitoring the daily minutia of city and county govern-m ent with the ultimate goal of controlling both tends to wane slightly. B udgets are boring, right, especially to policy folks? Not if you look closely, consider: Some say the county is roughly $10 million in the hole, some say no whos right? Well, if the county commission and the clerk c an put aside their differences for awhile, budget discussions, assuming the numbers are real,s hould tell us. For the city, budget time marks the annua l appearance like a poorly animated horror movie monster of the worst contract ever entered into by a city commission, known commonly as the marina contract. For taxpayers the suffering is year-round, but at budget time t he full impact of that misguided agreement is fully displayed and illuminated for all to see.M ore in the next paragraph. Budget time also marks the appearance of t he second-worst contract ever entered into by a city commission, referred to by most as the g olf course contract. These two contracts the m arina and golf course were championed by supporters as privatization efforts, designed to free taxpayers from the muck and mire associated with decades of city mismanagement. The resulting numbers from those cont racts tell a different story: in this years budget the generalf und (city taxpayers spend $640,000 subsidizing t he two privatized contracts. Over the last three years then, if this year is typical, city taxpayers have spent almost $2 million supporting a privatized marina and golf course. T his commission, though not responsible for originati ng the contracts, has to find a way out of both. Blaming a past commission and past city leadership doesnt work anymore current commissioners, this is your watch. It seemed that city and county governm ents were working together in an attempt to make public safety (police, fire and rescue) ont he island more efficient and effective. The city, if allowed to provide public safety for the island, c ould save the county more than $600,000 a year and allow current county operations to be utilized more effectively and efficiently elsewhere. The city would be reimbursed for the coverage and the two nonsensical mutual aid a greements would happily go away. Win-win, right? Well, never underestimate t he power of politics to undermine a great situation. The talks fell through and status quo r eturns no $600,000 savings to the county a nd the two nonsensical mutual aid pacts which c all for city police to answer routine calls in the c ounty and for city fire/rescue to still be responsible for much of the unincorporated area of the island are still in place. See, budgets arent boring. As a practical liberal, much of this local budget stuff amazes me. All of the current repr esentatives claim to be fiscal conservatives, yet all at the city level seem quite willing to tol-e rate two contracts that obligate city taxpayers to pay the salaries of private company employe es at the city marina, all maintenance at the marina and golf course, all dredging at the marina and all improvements at both. Fiscally responsible? I dont think so. And the fiscal conservatives on the county c ommission, when they reject the cooperative effort regarding public safety coverage on thei sland, they reject $600,000 in savings for county taxpayers, they reject more effective and effic ient use of personnel (more effective and efficient government) and they continue to reject reimbursement to city taxpayers (even though they never admit it, city residents are their constituents, too) for services rendered. Fiscally r esponsible, nah. Whether youre a flaming liberal, practical l iberal, concerned moderate, fiscal conservative or flaming conservative, keep a close eye o n the budget processes of both governments. The results of those processes will not only determine the size of the checks you write to both entities, but the policies each will focus on during the upcoming fiscal year. S o, non-issue issue people get involved; local government hobbyists and groupies geti nvolved, surely theres enough minutia in both budgets to keep you going until the next waterf ront plan is presented, or which un-needed w aterfront park plan is discussed or the CRA ( DSF) requests more seed money to funnel i nto the pockets of waiting consultants.

I ts our favorite day trip, a drive up to the east entrance to the Okefenokee Swamp just outside Folkston, Ga., and each time we do it we never know what to expect. Last w eeks trip there was even more unusual than most. To start with, when we arrived at the entrance gate the road was covered with smoke and fire workers directed us into the inferno. W ell, not actually into it. But the trees and shrubs on one s ide of the road were ablaze in a prescribed burn that workers in vehicles were carefully monitoring. Such burns are a necessity in managing this public land. The hardy palmettos and most of the pine trees survive a controlled burn, but other underb rush is burned away leaving open ground for new green vegetation that flourishes and provides new fodder for the many creatures that call the Okefenokee home. Small-sized prescribed burns like this one are easily avoided by birds that can fly away and snakes and small mammals that can flee on land. In fact, as we slowly drove by the burning area a snake zoomed across the r oad in front of us, leaving the h eat for the cool tr e es on the o ther side. Usually we stop to identify any snakes we see, but this time, in the heat of the moment, and with all the fire personnel on the road, we just kept driving. Exciting enough, yes, but f or us the Okefenokee advent ur e continued. As usual we headed to the five-mile loop road to drive slowly along the borrow ditch beside i t looking for critters. S ometimes we see otters in this canal, sometimes gators, and always there a re pond turtles sunning o n the logs and wildflowers in bloom no matter what the season. If the biting flies are not pummeling our windows I usually get out of the car a few times to take p hotos and to look at things more closely. This five-mile d rive sometimes takes us more than an hour. This day we saw alligators in the canal, a large one and a smaller one further down the channel. Alligator photos, no thanks, Ive got plenty, so we j ust kept driving. As usual, Bucko was the first to notice a n ew sight this time. Whats t hat over there? It looks like t he back of a turtle and a frog i n front of it. Upon closer i nspection it turned out to be a soft-shell turtle, and what w e took for a frog was the head of the turtle stuck out way far fr o m its body. Amazing. These turtles have a long neck like a snorkel with bulbous nostrils sticking above the water, a great adapt ation for living most of the t ime invisibly underwater t hats for sure. But the best was yet to come in the strangest of places. About halfway around the loop road there is a parking area for the 3/4-mile boardwalk to the observation t ower. But first things first: this parking lot also has a r estroom. And thats where we found her. Near the mens room door, on the lawn, a large soft-shell turtle was digging a nest! We watched her use her hind legs to laboriously hollow out a h ole in the dirt beneath a grassy lawn. Another car d rove to the lot, and we called these visitors over to watch the show with us. Once a turtle is busy digging a nest, nothing gets in her way, but we were still cautious about disturbing her and stayed at a s afe distance marking her progress. It was a great photo o p and a good look at that strange face and long neck that we had seen earlier in the canal. On the way back along the loop road our sights turned up into the trees. Here and t here a red-headed woodpecker hid from us on the back s ide of pine trees. The redc ockaded woodpeckers, an e ndangered species, were not q uite as distinctive in colo ration and even harder to f ocus on, but everywhere we l ooked we saw trees holding their nesting cavities, with sap flowing down the pine tr e es giving away their location. Soon enough we were out of the swamp and heading back to Fernandina full of c hatter about the animals w ed seen and the fire we w atched burning. It was another great field trip to the Okefenokee. Weve never been disappointed yet! Pat Foster-Turley is a zoologist on Amelia Island.

C C r r a a s s h h a a r r r r e e s s t t A Fernandina Beach woman was charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia after hitting a parked car and then turning around to go home, according to a police report. A witness told police she heard a loud crash outside her house and saw a red Hyundai leaving the scene to park at a residence down the street. According to the report, the driver had crashed into an unoccupied vehicle legally parked in front of a residence, causing severe damage to the right side. Police spoke with the driver of the car, who said she was aware that she hit a parked car, but decide d to go to her home down the s treet. D uring the interview with the driver, police observed a smoking pipe in plain view on the drivers side of the red Hyundai, according to he report. When asked about the pipe, the driver allegedly told police she used it to smoke marijuana. On a search of the car, police discove red a clear plastic bag in the cent er console. The green, leafy substance inside tested positive for marijuana, according to the report. After being read her rights, the driver told police she was driving down the r oad when she str uck the p arked vehicle, and decided to go h ome because she just wanted to g o home and because she only lives 30 seconds away accor d ing to the r eport. She also allegedly told police she smoked marijuana in order to calm down. Damage to the parked car was estimated at $6,000 and damage to the drivers car was estimated at$ 3,000. T he driver was ar r ested and char g ed with failur e to leave infor mation after a crash, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, all misdemeanors. B B a a t t a a t t t t a a c c k k A Y ulee man was ar r ested June 4 after an incident thr e e days earli er during which he smashed the windows of a friend s pickup tr u ck, according to a police report. Police were dispatched to 85479 Ther esa Road, Yulee, on June 1 in r esponse to a 911 call. The victim told police David Carr Bowles, 62, had destroyed his truck by breaking all the windows. The victim explained that he and Bowles had gone out drinking earlier in the evening, and when they came back to Bowles residence, Bowles went crazy b ecause the victim had been talking to a girl a the bar, the report stated. During the altercation, Bowles reportedly grabbed a baseball bat and began hitting the windows of the victims truck. At the scene, police observed the trucks front windshield, passenger side window a nd side mirror were broken. During questioning, Bowles said he and the victim had gone drinking at a bowling alley and came back to his residence. An argument ensued, and Bowles said he grabbed the bat and began hitting the windows of the victims truck.

She b egan working in the late 1980s to assist with opening t he library at the request of Marie Stevens. Stevens wanted to expand an after-school program to include access to b ooks and other reading m aterials. The children were not r eading, Albert said. Donated used books had b een stored at the Elm Street Recreation Center (now the Mar t in Luther King Jr. Center) and the preparation to move them to Peck was exhausting work. I washed so many books, s aid Albert. I n the beginning the Peck C ommittee served as an advoc ate for the library, acting in t he capacity of liaison with the city. After the committee diss olved several years ago, Albert and her staff were left to become r e sourceful on their own regarding generating public interest. ere operating on donat ions, Albert said, noting that t he city of Fernandina Beach d onates space to the librar y t hat is community-supported and operates for two hours, thr e e days weekly. When a library volunteer suggested presenting the fashion show to generate publicity, Fashion Fantasy cof ounder and executive prod ucer Emma Noble immedi a tely agreed to produce the show. She has a beautiful spirit, A lbert said about Noble who h as for mor e than two d ecades recruited youth models from the community with their par e nts consent. This Christian woman is some thing else. In the librarys early years, it kept busy with student vol-u nteers earning service h ours. Today the librarys s taff of four is one of a few tenants remaining in the Peck Community Center I know this is a new day Albert said. Its a new time. Despite the changes she would like to see the libraryr emain operational as an altern ative to help maximize a ccess for all residents to the citys recreational and educational r e sour c es. Were not trying to comp ete with (the Fernandina Beach Branch Library), Alber t said, If you had just one rec (recreation center), you wouldnt have the same amount of participation, she said, explaining that the l ibrarys location downtown l imits some and inhibits othe rs from traveling to the Fer n andina Beach branch. The city of Fer nandina Beach recently joined Nassau County and the Friends of the Library in funding theb ranchs building expansion a nd renovation is currently u nder way. The Peck library, which Alber t r e fers to as a r eading r oom, is designed to serve the community. Despite the waning patr onage, the librar y r emains, she said, to encour a ge parents to make the l ibrary an important part of t he family.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK OUTDOORS/ TIDES WEDNESDAY, JUNE18, 2014NEWS-LEADER/ FERNANDINABEACH, FL ORIDAKingfish, cobia and tarpon action"We hooked seven tarpon this past week during a morning charter while casting lures to a school of flood tide tarpon at the St. Marys inlet," Capt. Danny Flynn said. "We were able to release two of the tarpon that weighed close to 100 pounds. "We have been waiting since the first of June for the main run of tarpon to take place, which has been later than usual due to a cold winter and lots of rain." Capt. Kenny Crawford r ecently guided 13year-old Rob V ael to a 150pound Amelia Island tarpon while fishing with live menhaden on the bottom at the St. Marys south jetties. "After making several jumps, Rob's tarpon stayed deep, where we had to follow the big tarpon far out into the channel," Crawford said. "Rob actually hooked the tarpon in Florida waters and finally r eleased his big silver king in Georgia waters. Rob's father, Rick Vael, also assisted with landing the giant tarpon." A big migration of king mackerel is now taking place along the beaches, inlets and offshore live bottoms of Northeast Florida. Most of the larger kingfish are being caught along the beaches including the Jacksonville fishing pier and the Red Tops, located just south of the Jacksonville inlet. Michael Peeples recently kingfished with his two sons, Justin and Denver, and landed a beautiful 36-pound "smoker" kingfish while mackerel fishing along the Jacksonville beaches. Area sport fishing boats are catching schooling kingfish at some of the more popular offshore live bottoms, including FA, FC, HH and the AH fish havens. Most of the offshore kings are being caught while deep trolling live baits, including cigar minnows and menhaden with the aid of downriggers. Capt. Allen Mills is enjoying excellent cobia fishing action offshore at some of the more popular fish havens, including FB and FC live bottoms, ledges and wrecks. "We have been hooking up to small schools of cobia mainly at the offshore wrecks," first mate Travis Mills said. "Oftentimes cobia will follow up a hooked fish like a grouper or amberjack. Here we will cast a four-ounce buck tail jig, saltwater rapala or plastic swim bait to the cobia and retrieve the lure r eal fast so that the cobia gets excited into taking the lure."L L o o c c a a l l k k i i n n g g f f i i s s h h t t o o u u r r n n a a m m e e n n t t u u p p d d a a t t e eThe annual King Buster T ournament will be held from the Mayport-based Morning Star Marina June 20-21.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK P AGE 4B W EDNESDAY J UNE 18, 2014 N EWS -L EADER / F ERNANDINA B EACH FL Historic houses a chance to step back in time Living on Amelia Island we have a unique opportunity to experience a living museum Fernandina Beachs Historic District. Like sleepi ng beauties, elegant homes built in the late 1800s are frozen in time. No two alike, each offers a story about the people and events that shaped part of the history of Floridas most northern barrier island. After the Civil War great prosperity came to Amelia Island. Not only was there a deep natural harbor, it w as the home of an amazing man who forever changed the history of the island and the state. Prior to the Civil War, David Levy Yulee expanded the existing town of Fernandina, the last town platted by Spain in the Western Hemisphere in 1811, to create an Old Town and a New Town. His dream? Ships could sail the A tlantic and off-load in our spacious harbor, placing their cargoes onto t he first trans-peninsular railroad terminating in Cedar Key. Florida being a state was part of his vision and he is considered to be the Father of F lorida statehood. He served two t erms as a senator in our federal government. In the late 1800s homes reflecting the wealth and stature of Fernandina residents were crafted by builders, craftsmen and island architect R obert Sands Schuyler. Many of the soldiers from the North stationed on the island during the Civil War chose to return, bring their families and build homes. M aybe most interesting of all, tourism brought people to northern Florida. Word spread about Floridas palm trees and warm breezes. The island was referred to as the Newport of the South. The Mallory Steamship Line d elivered delighted tourists twice weekly. The railroads brought a b oom to the island. Ironically, they were also the cause of her decline. Yulees fortunes ebbed and another railroad entrepreneur, Henry F lagler, pushed south, taking with h im both tourists and economic opportunity. Englands Queen Victoria reigned from 1837 to 1901. It was a time of great excess, imagination a nd technical innovation in architectural design. It was during that time that many of the Historic Districts elegant homes were built. During that period a house could reference a wide variety of styles, ranging from Gothic Revival, Italianate and Queen Anne to Greek and Colonial Revival, Shingle, East Lake and others. Island houses were rarely d esigned by architects. Carpenters, s hip builders and harbor pilots w ould build houses that suited their v ision or the fancy of those who employed them. An exception is W illiam Sands Schuyler, who returned to the area after serving during the Civil War. Schuyler designed the old school house, St. Peters Episcopal Church, the Fairbanks House, the Hirth House, the Tabby House and the enhancements of the pre-Civil War Williams House. The Golden Era was short lived, b ut we have our painted ladies to r emind us of that charmed time in o ur history. The economy declined a nd Amelia Island, like Sleeping B eauty, quietly waited for an economic awakening. It came in waves. First came the paper industry, to be followed by our resorts and hotels that now bring visitors to enjoy our i slands treasures once again. Our island museum offers e xhibits and tours to enhance your enjoyment of the neighborhoods t hat surround it. Best of all take a walk and step back in time and imagine a gentler time and place the Golden Age of Amelia Island. Dickie Andersons book, Great H omes of Fernandina Architectural Treasures of Amelia Islands Golden Age, is available at the Amelia Island Museum of History, the Book Loft and island gift stores or contact The b ook offers a driving tour highlighting 2 2 of the Historic Districts Victorian h o mes.

Bean said that, while the session is only 60 days long, legislators begin meetings in Tallahassee some two and a half months beforehand. The primary goal is crafting a balanced budget. Legislators passed a $77.1 billion budget, which includes increased spending for education. Bean said other priorities included decr easing taxes and fees and said we should soon see a reduction in the cost of tags and driver s licenses. In addition, legislators implement ed thr ee tax-fr ee holidays this fiscal year: Hurricane Preparedness Week, the Back to School Tax-Free Week and the Energy Efficiency Week, with tax breaks on Energy Star appliances. Rotary Past President Larry Myers is pictured with Bean.
