At a special meeting Monday, the board voted 3-2 to raise the tax rate by one mill for fiscal 2014-15, which starts Oct. 1. This would mean an estimated increase of $110 to $130 for each $100,000 of assessed value for a homesteaded property in Nassau County. Two public hearings are required a nd likely will be held in September. Final approval of the budget would c ome before the new fiscal year begins O ct. 1. The county could still lower the p roperty tax rate, but could not raise it above the increase approved Monday. The tax hike is estimated to raise an additional $6.1 million, say budget offic ials. While the money is significant, it was not enough to close the $11.2 mill ion shortfall projected by the county Office of Management and Budget. The board also voted to eliminate a $1.5 million maintenance plan for the countys paved roads. They also cut in half a plan to reduce the fleet replacement program, t o $1.5 million from $3 million. The board added $2.5 million to its capital improvement projects and will a lso use money from the one-cent fund a nd reserve account to balance the b udget, as required by state statute. H ere is the result of the vote: C ommissioner Danny Leeper: Yes. C ommissioner Walter Jr Boatright: Yes. Commissioner Pat Edwards: Yes. Board Chair Barry Holloway: No. COUNTY Continued on 3A Deer graze at Fort C linch State Park in t he early mor ning h ours of the Fourth of July, above.

Its not like, well, your year is up, get over it. It doesnt work like that. People pr obably think that Im doing really well, and happy and all but . it hurts. Erin was an athletic young woman who loved sharing her enthusiasm with her Cranford Fitness T raining clients. She also did pet sitting and it is this endeavor that her mother took over after her death. An ardent animal lover, Erin was often seen driving around town with her friends West Highland White Terrier sitting in the front seat of her little convertible. T aking over her daughter s pet sitting business gave Cranford the opportunity to honor her memory and benefit homeless animals at the same time by suggesting that clients make a donation to the Nassau Humane Society instead of paying her That business plan resulted in a donation of $1,000 recently when fitness and pet sitting client Julie Bennett donated that amount after Cranfor d pet-sat her two W est Highland White Terriers, Chevy Joe and Chrysler Ann. Leigh volunteers for the Nassau Humane Society and she does such a great job. The donation was an unexpected gift to me that I didnt want to accept so I accepted it any way and gave it to the Humane Society , said Bennett, whose generosity had a profound impact on Cranford. My mouth fell open when she told me she was giving me a check for $1,000 for the Humane Society. Her kindness and gener osity wer e a total surprise. Cranfords only other clients are a Y orkie and his Shih-Tzu companion in her own neighborhood. I dont pet sit that much, but the Humane Society doesnt care about that. They ar e happy to get a dona tion in any amount. HEATHER A. PERRY/NEWS-LEADER Leigh Cranfor d does pet sitting to honor the memory of her daughter, Erin CranfordW illiams. MOTHERContinued on 3A


For the News-Leader Boaters can help reduce the r isk of collisions with manatees and other wildlife by being e xtra vigilant when out on county waterways. Slowing down in manatee habitat and observing all posted boat speed regulations can save manatee lives. Also, statistics on human/ w atercraft injuries and fatalities continue to c oncern Floridians and visitors who enjoy the states waterways. A recent press release from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC l ost their lives in Florida in 2013 due to boating accidents, and t here have been 11 deaths so far in 2014. Read more at; click on Boating Accidents. Since boat traffic often doubles or triples during the summer holidays, dangerous condit ions for the boating community as well as the slowm oving manatees can increase d ramatically. S ave the Manatee Club prod uces bright yellow, waterproof b oating banners and provides them fr e e to Florida boaters to help warn other boaters when manatees are sighted in the area. By carrying the Please S low Manatees Below banner i n motorboats, kayaks and c anoes, its much easier and m ore efficient to alert other boaters when manatees ar e present. Remember, manatees must surface to breathe and prefer shallow waters. If you see a manatee when operating a powerboat, remain a safe dis-t ance away about 300 feet. If y ou want to obser ve the mana t ee, cut the motor but don t drift over the manatee. Lori Dement fr o m South Pasadena takes the clubs boating banner along whenever she and her husband, Cyr us, are out on local waterways in their dinghy. I requested the banner so that I can do what I can to protect the manatees they are just so very precious, said Dement. The club also produces and distributes free shoreline property signs and boating decals w ith the message to Slow Please, and both feature the FWCs hotline number for reporting manatees in distress. If you see an injured, dead, tagged or orphaned manatee, or a manatee who is b eing harassed, call the FWC at 1-888-404-FWCC (3922 #FWC or *FWC on your cellular phone, use VHF Channel 16 on your marine radio, or send a text to Responsible boating practices can save both human and manatee lives, says Dr. Katie T ripp, director of Science and Conservation for Save the Manatee Club. This is especially crucial during busy holidays when more boaters are out on the water and the risks increase.

U nder a 0.3164 millage rate 31.64 cents for every $1,000 o f assessed pr o perty value the owner of a $200,000 house with a $50,000 homestead exemption would pay $47.46 in the coming year in pr oper ty taxes to the district. The tentative budget will allow the district to continuet he momentum on its strategic priorities and to implement critical projects that will result ing reater protection for our s prings and improved water q uality in sur f ace waters, said Governing Board Chairman John Miklos of Orlando.

Erin Cranford Williams, below, died unexpectedly on July 10, 2013. C ommissioner Steve Kelley: No. Both Holloway and Kelley acknowledged the countys money trouble during a l engthy board discussion that started at 9 a.m. and ended a fter 3 p.m., with an hour or so break for lunch. But still both c ommissioners said no to the budget proposal. Why? They did not say. Holloway and Kelley did not o ffer explanation during public discussion, and they quickly l eft the meeting after it ended. Holloway said he was late f or an appointment and did not have time to speak with a reporter about his vote. Kelley ignored the News-Leaders request for comment on his way out the door. Holloway and Kelley both s eek re-election this year. Kelley and Mike Boyle will face e ach other in a closed primary Aug. 26 and the winner will face write-in candidate Gene Alley in Novembers general election. The race between Republicans Holloway and George Spicer will be open to all voters since there are no opponents in November. D espite the boards vote, there is still time to re-workt he budget, and even potent ially for the tax increase to go a way. Commissioners are hoping that bids for the new sherif f administration building come in lower than $10 million. Thats how much money the board has set aside for the proje ct, but there is widespread b elief that the bids will come in a t $6 million. If they do, that could potentially free $4 million. The bids will be opened today at 10 a.m. The lowest bid will be accepted and pursued. But for now the boards budget discussions centered o n a tax increase and cuts virt ually acr oss the boar d. H er e is how Holloway described it. e e just taking out our scissors and cutting, cutting, cutting, said Holloway. The board questioned e very department and expense. Woooo Lordy, said Kelley about a $2.1 million expense f or new radios for the sheriff, fire rescue and Road and Bridge departments. Were down here shaking pennies. Staff was also asked to just ify expenses. Fire Chief Matt Graves a sked to replace poorly performing and obsolete extricat ion equipment, with four new units for $139,000. The board said he could have two. Heres some of the discussion. H olloway: Public safety is a priority, but that being said, c an we get by with two? Leeper: Any way they can b e phased in over two or three years? Graves: You know as well as I do, when youre trapped in a car you want out. (This e quipment means) getting the person out potentially quicke r. The board slashed a $ 233,000 request by Facilities Maintenance to replace seven beach access walkovers. It agreed to fund two projects, including Peters Point and another on the south end at #110 for $155,000. The board signed off on a $90,000 request from the Supervisor of Elections Office for new voting equipment. R oad & Bridge will receive $ 81,000 for a carpor t. S upervisor David Hearn said a variety of equipment, including mowers, cement mixers and excavation equipment, is sitting in the open deteriorating. He also told the board that w orkers are overburdened w ith maintenance pr ojects. T he budget also includes a 2.5 percent salary increase for union workers and staf f and, for the first time, the county must begin funding a portion of pension liabilities starting next year under a new state statute. B oatright asked if health c are costs were up, and he was t old no. Boatright also wanted to know why the county is spending almost $1 million to fund a health department since it is a state agency. And he didnt likea pproving a $65,000 expense t o upgrade the departments p hone system. B udget Director and Assistant County Manager Shanea Jones walked commissioners through the numbers with support from Cindy Wood, who also works in the budget o ffice. T hey worked on an intera ctive spreadsheet that was p r o jected onto a scr een and shown to the audience watching online. No one from the public attended the meeting. Jones told commissioners that she had met with Clerk of Court John Crawford and that he was on board with her budget numbers and projections. She offered five-year proj ections, but Holloway told her t o ignore them. Were only concerned with 2 014-2015, said Holloway. That r e quest puzzled Edwards. ere talking about eliminating the five-year plan? said Edwards. That leaves us with n o plan. C ounty Manager Ted Selby a greed. He has been pushing t he boar d for years for a longterm plan. These items need to be mentioned that are looming, said Selby. I dont think you can take one clean swipe. Y ou need to know whats out there. C C o o u u n n t t y y w w o o n n t t i i n n s s p p e e c c t t r r o o a a d d w w o o r r k k At a special budget meeting Monday, the Nassau County Commission questioned planned road projects, including repaving Chester Road. W hile the state is planning to give the county more than $13 million to do the work, commissioners discussed elimin ating the project altogether because the countys obligation for the roadway is about $1.5 million. The board also cut $250,000 from Public Works for a road inspector on the expansion of Commerce Drive behind Publix in Yulee. For the first time, the county is allowing a private real estate developer to help build and pay for a new road. And they p ut Sleiman Enterprises in charge of construction and inspection. S leiman officials say they have their own inspector. oure spending additional money. Thats a waste, said Sleiman executive Michael Herzberg, who attended the budget meeting with a trio of colleagues, including Eli Sleiman, one of the owners. The board liked what he had to say. County Engineer Jonathan Page did not. You dont get what you expect, you get what you inspect, said Page to commissioners. P ublic Works Director Scott Herring, who was on a scheduled vacation and did not attend the meeting, had previously argued in support of using an independent inspector to protect the countys interest. The board had previously agreed with him. But now it changed its mind. With the opportunity to save money, the board said it wants the contract with the road inspector canceled. C ommissioner Danny Leeper answered conflict of interest concerns by asking Herzberg if the company is experienced a nd reliable. ouve built a lot of roadways. Has this historically been a problem? said Leeper to Herzberg. No, said Herzberg. Theres never been a bond called to my knowledge.

HEATHER A. PERRY News-Leader Some might see the type of chiropractic Dr. Kevin Lin has b rought to Fernandina Beach when he opened his practicei n May as unique or unconventional, but its actually not new. Theres a history with this. This is what chiropractic originally was and then it kind of turned into something diff erent. A small percentage of chiropractors, say 5 or 7 per-c ent, still practice this. Were definitely different. Lin explains that when chiropractic first came around, this is the way it was practiced. He has the advantage of state-of-the-art instruments w ith which to obtain accurate measurements of structurals hifts that disturb the spinal cord. The spinal cord is the Main Street of your entire n ervous system so like domin oes, everything gets dist urbed. A gradua te of Life College in Atlanta and practitioner of Neural R estoration Chiropractic,t he young chiropractor s ays traditional chiropractic focuses on goals such as decreasing muscle spasms, increasing range of motion and the temporary r eduction of pain. This is how most chiropractors practicea nd most of them do a great job. However, it falls under the c ategory of symptom relief/symptom management, aka Band-Aid care, said Lin. Rather than constantly repairing damage, Lin concentrates on fixing the underlying neural shifts to help his p atients achieve normal structure. Our services are not for e veryone. However, if you are tired of constantly patching the problem and you are looking for a long-term solution that you can both feel and see for yourself, then Precision Chiropractic maybe be the r ight place for you. Lin explains that instead of just looking for a temporary treatment or symptom management, he focuses on the relationship between the spine and the nervous system. Its the difference b etween just filling in the pothole and having the road repaved so the pothole wont return. O ne beneficial feature Lins patients especially appreciate is the stabilization area. Following a treatment, patients relax for up to 60 minutes in one of five full-size beds or five lounge chairs. T his rest period allows the body to immediately begin stabilizing the spine in its proper position. Instead of jumping back into the routine of day-to-day life and the many stresses associated with that (i.e. work, children, traffic), the time s pent in the stabilization area allows your body to focus on healing in a calming and comfortable environment, saidL in. As a result of this unique f eature we notice that our p atients need fewer adjustments, heal more quickly and have lasting r esults. Unlike conventional chiropractic, our strategy for our patients is to p rovide a sustainable longt erm solution to their ailm ents. We dont want to just m ake an adjustment, we want t o make a correction. For the past five years, Lin has made annual humanitarian mission trips to Guatemala a nd the Dominican Republic, b ringing his special brand of chiropractic care for free to people in need as part of the KCUCS (Knee Chest Upper Cervical Protocol) pro-g ram. There was a team of 13 of u s and we saw about 5,000 p eople in a weeks time, said L in, who is a certified practitioner and also teacher for this protocol. He will be making another mission trip in October. Lin and his wife, Rebekah, have two daughters, Ayda and H adley, and are looking forw ard to the birth of their third child in September. When he is not in the office, he enjoys an occasional game of golf, a stroll down-t own and building sandcastles or looking for shark teeth at t he beach with his family.

Same old The root word to news is new, but the nagging issues attracting headlines withinN assau County are old in n atur e. With some renewed t wists. Issues surrounding budget woes and the Fer n andina Beach marina and the golf course have been swirling since David Y ulee, or at least it seems that way. And yet they re-emerge. Heck, even Yulee himself has comeu nder unfriendly fire. Its overly simplistic to say that the budget and the mari na and the golf course ar e complicated issues. Maybe that s why they have been so difficult to resolve over the years and have made for ideal fodder for discussion. T he budget complications extend fr o m the county to the city While Fer nandina Beach is in better budgetary shape than the county, there are still issues there. Fer nandina Beach commissioners relied on a tax-rate incr ease last year to balance their budget. Meanwhile, they still assess anti-capitalistic impact fees on new businesses. The countys budget outlook is worse. Proponents of higher pr oper ty taxes con tend there is as much as a $12 million budget shor tfall that only new revenues can purportedly rectify. Others (like me) believe there are surplus funds in r eser ve to neatly fill the gap for this year. The biggest mess and albatr oss of them all is the Fernandina Beach Municipal Golf Course. It s especially disconcerting because the golfc ourse was r unning s moothly three years ago under Scott Wombles able guid ance before former city offi-c ials interceded. The notion of privatizing the golf course operations is realistic and even oppor tunistic. The way it played out left a lot to be desired. The root of the problem is t he contract signed by the city to hir e Billy Casper Golf to manage the course. The contract does not contain a performance clause and even penalizes the city monetarily if it backs out early Therefore, the Casper gr oup collects something like $100,000 a year r egardless of the courses condition or financial status. Meanwhile, the city pays the salaries and retirement benefits for employees there. And, granted, this is a small contract for Casper. That s pr obably why Casper originally sent an administrative clerk here to manage the course. The clerk lacked PGA cer tification and could not even provide golf lessons. The only resolution for the golf course is to r enegotiate with Casper or bring in another company on better ter ms. Closing (or selling of the three nine-hole courses is another alternative,w hich would then require l ess maintenance, upkeep and s taff. The city marina was handled much the same. A pri vate company W e strec, was brought in to replace the former marina manager (who was a city employee). Westrec seems to be doing an admirable job, however. T he marina looks and operates much better than befor e The W e str ec dockworkers ar e courteous and professional. Theres just this annoying silt pr oblem to com plicate matters. While the mounds of silt are hardly Westrecs fault,t hey confound marina opera tions. Many local citizens sup por t the A TM plan, an elabo rate study that called for extending the existing bulkhead beyond the silt and thenr elocating some of the docks to the north. This is the only plan that r eally makes sense. If nothing is done, the silt will again accumulate and incur substantial costs to the city for its removal. Sorry to say at this late junctur e, but only things that float (boats, docks, etc.e appr opriate for a marina. It s difficult to take issue with that.

As part of a continued comm itment to patient safety, Baptist Health is partnering with Vestagen Technical Textiles of Orlando, a global innovator in the development of advanced textile technologies. More than 30,000 pieces of staff uniforms, lab coats and s crub jackets for employees are being distributed in phase one and will feature Vestex textile technology, which has a durable fluid barrier, an antimicrobial and a special breathable material for wearer comfort. Baptist Health plans to roll out patient apparel featuring the same techn ology in September. The fabrics fluid barrier binds to individual fibers, resulting in material that is highly repellent to bodily fluids, water, oil and dirt. This high repellency has been shown to synergize with Vestagens embedded antimicrobial technology to prevent organisms from being acquired and retained on the f abric. Soft surfaces, like unif orms, are vectors for the s pread of organisms in acute care settings. Patient safety is the bedrock of what we do, said Baptist Health President and CEO Hugh Greene in a press release. There is nothing morei mportant than the safety of our patients and these garments are p ar t of an or ganization-wide e mphasis on quality and safety t o create the safest possible environment for our patients and staff. Mor e than 6,000 Baptist Health inpatient staf f with frequent patient contact, including nursing, imaging, r espirator y t herapy and envir onmental s ervices members, are conv erting to the new uniforms during the phase one distribution. Staff uniforms will also be color -coded by function so that patients can more easily recognize who is caring for them. Baptist Health is focused on making health car e safer for e ver yone staff as well as p atients and their families. The more than $1 million Baptist Health is investing in phase one for the uniforms and patient garments represent this commitm ent to safety and the brand promise of Changing Health C are for Good. Diane Raines, Baptist H ealths senior vice president and chief nursing officer, said patients ages 1 year and older also will receive newly-designed apparel made from Vestex protected fabric that provide them with dignity as well as protection. Baptist Health is not making the change because of a p roblem with infection, but to be proactive in our use of technology to enhance our environment. The technology is part of a broader safety strategy designed to reduce exposure to pathogens. Hand washing, Raines said, remains the primary strategy a s well as rigorous cleaning of rooms and other surfaces, appropriate use of personal protective equipment, appropriate preparation of patients for surgery, and other measures. e know that this technology is not the ultimate answer to achieving zero infections, Raines said. However, as with many patient safety bundles, t he adoption of this technology c ombined with an enhanced e mphasis on other infection prevention techniques will elevate our level of protection for patients and staff and enhance the safety of the health care environment. The health care industry n ationally is moving toward improvements in infection cont r ol. Baptist Health is a pioneer i n the field well before guidance c ame out in February from the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America onr ecommendations to pr e vent transmission of health car eassociated infections from health care personnel attire. The report points to studies demonstrating that clothing of h ealth care personnel, including the traditional white coat, m ay have a role in transmission of pathogens and that future s tudies are needed. e believe this is not just an investment in uniforms, but in an innovative technology that will make our environment safer, said John Wilbanks, Baptist Health chief operating officer. This is a symbol of our commitment to our staff and t heir families, and our patients and their families. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports about one in 25 hospital patients has at least one health careassociated infection. The agency estimates that 2 million patients suffer from hospitala cquired infections every year and nearly 100,000 of them die. Hospital-acquired infections result in up to $4.5 billion in additional health care expenses annually. Vestagen executives said Baptist Health is blazing the trail and setting the standard for others in the health care industry. Some other institut ions have used the staff unif orms on a smaller scale, but B aptist Health is the first to institute the Vestex uniforms systemwide for staff with direct patient contact. Baptist Health is also the first to have Vestex patient apparel. R esearch on the Vestex uniforms published in Infection C ontr ol and Hospital E pidemiology documented a g reater than 99.99 percent reduction in the super-bug MRSA on the Vestex uniforms compar ed to the non-pr o tective unifor ms.

ANGELA DAUGHTRY News-Leader T he Fernandina Beach commission last week authorized City Attorney Tammi Bach to defend the city in two new litigation matters involving property within the city. Gateway to Amelia Condom inium Association, represented by Yulee attorney Mollie G arrett, has petitioned Nassau County Judicial Court to review a recent city ordinance that annexed 17.46 county acres into the city at South Eighth Street and Gateway Boulevard. T he petition for writ of certiorari claims the property owners at Gateway to Amelia will suffer material injury as a result of the annexation because of increased property taxes they will have to pay in the city, and because of more stringent regulations for operating their busin ess and development of their properties. The petitioner also seeks to recover attorney costs already incurred by opposing the annexation. The petitioner is asking the c ourt to determine if it was afforded due process and whether the citys annexation was based on competent and s ubstantial evidence. The annexed area includes t he Gateway to Amelia r etail/office center, a Florida P ublic Utilities substation, r estaurants and a gas station. T he Somerset r e sidential units, which were originally part of the annexation, were r emoved because its sewer system is not connected to the city and because the Somerset annexation agreement was never recorded by the city, according to city staff. The annexation was proposed because the properties a re already hooked into the city sewer system and because the area has become contiguous to the city. In another litigation matter, First National Bank South of Alma, Ga., is seeking mediation with the city regarding the citys denial of a wetlands variance for 1 4.8 acres at South 14th and Lime streets. The variance was denied in May by the Board of Adjustment, which claimed the land is unique due to an unmaintained ditch that has resulted in the conversion of uplands to wetlands. A ccording to the petition, the wetlands were created by a mosquito control ditch that was abandoned 20 years ago, and have accumulated enough water to impact upland species and trees. The petition also notes, The wetlands on the subject p roperty are low quality, with little benefit to wildlife ... due, in part, to the fact that ... they are relatively small ... and surrounded by other developm ent including busy roadw ays. M ichael Mullin of Rogers Towers, attorney for the applicant, writes, The denial of the variance by the BOA adversely impacts the applicants ability to achieve the intended use of the subject property by unreas onably and unfairly burdening t he pr operty. B ach said at the meeting July 1 that such mediation usually ends in some type of development agreement between the parties. She also noted the city would be getting an independent environmental report on the parcel before going to mediat ion. Several residents spoke in support of the variance denial, including local zoologist and environmental advocate Pat Foster Turley, who writes the weekly Wild Ways column for the News-Leader I just hope everybody k nows this is going to set a trend if we give in to this, Turley said. She added that, because of the surrounding wetlands, there was a greater diversity of species on the island. I hope you are not willing to lay down, resident Julie F erreira told commissioners. I think this amounts to greed ... this is a bank coming to our community and trying to change our laws (andying to increase property values before they sell it to a developer. These are jurisdictional wetl ands and not open for any debate, said resident Bailey Struss. Bach also said at the meeting that a petition filed in June 2 013 by The Palms of Amelia Condominium Associa-tion was denied on June 27 by Circuit Court Judge Suzanne Bass. The condo association had p etitioned the court for a review of an annexation ordinance for an 8.5-acre parcel of county land off Nectarine Street that was annexed into the city in June 2013. Residents of the complex, represented by local attorney Harrison Poole, opposed annexa tion with essentially the same arguments as the Gateway to Amelia petition, saying they did not sign an annexation agreement with the city, nor did they know the property was to be annexed when they bought their units. The residents also said they d id not want to be annexed into the city because property taxes and permit fees were higher than the countys. The Court finds that the decision of the City Commission of Fernandina Beach of June 4, 2013 was supported by competent substantial evidence, that t he Plaintiff was accorded procedural due process ... and the essential requirements of law have been observed, Bass wrote. 6 A CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK W EDNESDAY J ULY 9, 2014 NEWS News-Leader City to defend 2 new lawsuits D inner:Wed.-Sat.5pm-9pm Lunch:Tues-Sat 11pm-3pmPark Place 5472 First Coast Cannot be used with special menu, or events or other discount offers.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 7A W EDNESDAY J ULY 9, 2014 OPINION News-Leader VOICE OF THE PEOPLE K K e e e e p p t t h h e e g g o o l l f f c c o o u u r r s s e e Unfortunately, I voted for Fernand ina Beach Commissioner Johnny Miller, who suggests that we dont need the city-owned golf course. Now we have the News-Leader editor in agreement. I love it when people voice opinions on something they dont participate in. Can you say b ias? I work in the golf shop at the city c ourse. It is my retirement job. I also live in the city and my taxes help support the marina and city park, neither of which I use. But I gladly support them because they have value. They help make Amelia Island a great place to visit and a w onderful place to live. I feel the same way about the golf course. It is o ne of the reasons my wife and I chose Amelia Island as our retirement home. We thought having a 27-hole public golf course nearby was fantastic. It is true that the golf course loses money, due to old debt (clubhouse and irrigation system). W ithout it the golf course would break even.Its also true that the g olf course made significant profits for a number of years, which went directly to the city, and was subsequently spent, not reinvested in the golf course. As a result the golf course deteriorated to the pointw here it was no longer competitive. Despite many challenges, bumps in the road and a limited budget, the golf course has significantly improved under Billy Casper management, compared to its condition just prior. It is now very playable a nd can compete once again in the m arketplace. Bad press in this paper k ept some people away, and those that have tried us anyway are pleasantly surprised. The Fernandina Beach High School golf teams practice and play some of their matches at the city course. Junior camps are also hosted during the summer m onths. We are a perfect course for f amilies, providing an affordable and p layable golf course. The course has 340 members and hosts numerous winter visitors, some of which have been golfing at the city course for 25 years. Gr oups of winter visitors, some as large as 40, play the course nearly ever y day for the thr ee or f our months they are here. They n ot only spend money at the golf c ourse, they rent condos, eat out at our restaurants and support many of our local businesses. Would they visit the island without the city golf course? Perhaps. But without competition, the rates at the other public golf course would most likelyi ncr ease, potentially for cing some w inter visitors to look elsewhere for a winter vacation spot. Sending vacationers to other cities for golf doesnt seem to suppor t our goal of incr e asing profits for our local businesses. When tourists come in after a round of golf and ask for r ecommendations for wher e to eat and shop, I send them to one o f our many wonderful local busin esses. I dont believe that one of the off-island courses would send them back here do you? This could potentially cost our businesses a lot of revenue. The other golf courses on the island are associated with the Omni or are semi-private, private and expensive. W e frequently h ave guests staying at The RitzC arlton, Amelia Island or Omni A melia Island Plantation Resort playing golf at the city course. The other two courses in Yulee are either too difficult, expensive or both. Although the golf course loses money, I believe it can be profitable again. The South course nine holes is receiving new greens, and will reopen Aug 1. The plan is to redo the West and North course greens next. This will substantially make the golf course more competitive, and I think some of the golfers who l eft due to poor conditions will return. And the improvements will increase our ability to draw new golfers who were not willing to try us before. Keep the city golf course. It is an underappreciated gem! Carl Galpin F ernandina Beach I feel an issue has been overlooked during the commissioners discussions, the newspaper editors comments and those letter writers who do not see the value of keeping t he municipal golf course. The golf c ourse attracts a sizable number of p eople to the island that contribute in a myriad of ways to the local economy These would be snowbirds and people like myself who started as snowbirds and in time became property-owning taxpayers. These folks support local restaurants, a whole h ost of area businesses and those in t he vacation rental business. I started coming to Amelia Island as a snowbir d fr o m Maine and 10 years later bought a home that is now our year-round residence. A major influence in pr ompting me to return here year after year was the f act that there was a municipal golf c ourse whose rates were reasona ble and allowed unrestricted walking, still the only course within a r e asonable distance that of f ers this combination of featur es. Since moving here I have met many others who have also chosen to vacation or r eside her e because they value t hese same qualities that are offered b y the city course. Selling or leasing t he course to a private entity would almost guarantee the loss of pricing and walking guidelines that the municipal course is able to offer. As an aside I would commend the Billy Casper gr oup for the impr oved course conditions they have made while working with tight budgetary constraints. I would conclude by stating that the subsidy some city commissioners feel is being paid to keep the golf course does in reality come back as a financial advantage to the community businesses and individuals wher e the golfers that have been mentioned spend their m oney. R obert Robinson F er nandina Beach D D i i s s h h e e a a r r t t e e n n i i n n g g The lead stor y in the July 4 edition (Bond revoked for accused teacher) was hardly inspiring fare for our nations birthday. Disheartening is more the case. A local high school media teacher admits to forbidden conduct with a student, following in the tainted footsteps of his immediate predecessor. It would seem ther es more than mere misc hief afoot here; something isnt right! Once upon a time teachers taught serious coursework and acted like grown-ups. Faculty advisors for extracurriculars such as yearbook, photography, etc., werea ssigned as supervisors; many teachers took this on voluntarily. Long ago I edited a large high school newspaper and our advisor carried a full load teaching English and literature. No soft subjects there! O ne might wonder if there is dang er in the proliferation of less rigo rous fun courses where teachers can more easily slide into peer like relationships with students rather than providing adult leadership. Lets hope our school officials have some answers and some questions. T J. Robertson F ernandina Beach H H a a n n d d i i c c a a p p p p e e d d p p a a r r k k i i n n g g Why is it that some people have a dif ficult time understanding that Handicapped Parking means just t hat? After a wonderful Fourth of J uly spent with family at the Salty P elican, Sounds on Centre, band concert and fireworks show, we came back to our daughter s van, parked in a handicapped spot just across from the Palace Saloon, and a motor cycle is sharing this spot! The owner of this motor cycle pulled n ot only into our spot, but blocked t he ramp which comes out of the s ide of the van so that our daughter can roll in! Honestly, our first thought was, Just r o ll out the ramp and when it knocks the motorcycle over it will teach the owner a lesson, but common sense pr evailed and we spoke to one of the volunteer police aides, explained the issue and then stopped traffic while we backedt he van out into the street, let the ramp down and proceeded to get our daughter in. W e did ask what would happen to the motorcycle and hoped that a ticket would be issued hopefully the $250 fine for parking in a handicapped spot would jolt the owners sense of common courtesys o that he/she would never do this a gain! W e have found many people believe that if they are just running in for a minute or will only be gone for a bit that parking in a handi capped spot is acceptable! This is so untrue and inconsiderate! These people should thank God that they truly do not need to park there as that means they are unable to walk ver y far if at all. Please, think of your actions and how they affect others show r espect for the law and others for you truly are very lucky that you do not need one of t hese spots! I am not sure if the person who did this will read this letter, but maybe it will hit home with others who also do this! Marlene Chapman Fernandina Beach A A r r e e y y o o u u k k i i d d d d i i n n g g m m e e ? ? In Michael Parnells front-page article July 2, (Nassau County Commission candidate) Mike Boyle talked about people who had switched from the Democrat party t o the Republican Party in recent y ears. Boyle went on to say, There a re opportunists . who saw that if they were ever going to be elected again, they need to change par t ies. And he cited John Crawford and Steve Kelley. Are you kidding me, Mr. Boyle? Both Kelley and Crawford switched t o the Republican Party over 20 y ears ago. John Crawford joined the Republican Party in 1990 and Steve Kelley joined in 1992. This is a mat ter of public r ecord. More than 20 years ago can hardly be described as ecent years. It is also interesting that in 1990, 7 1.2 percent of registered voters w ere Democrat and only 24.7 perc ent were registered Republican. So, I hardly think John Crawford switched to the Republican Par t y in or der to gain votes. He actually switched to the less favored party and still won. Also, as far as Steve Kelley is c oncerned, he switched to the R epublican Party in 1990, yet did n ot run for office until 20 years later. I hardly think his switch was a ploy to gain votes 20 years down the r o ad. Its interesting to note that in the early 1990s Mr. Kelley was elected as chair of the Republican Executive Committee, and under his leader ship, the Republican Party did not lose a single race. That sounds likea pretty dedicated Republican to me. I am willing to give Mr. Boyle the benefit of the doubt and believe that he was misled about Mr. Kelley and Mr Crawfords reason for switching par ties, and that he did not mean to give out wr ong information. However, even though he may h ave been misled, as a responsible c itizen it was his obligation to check t he facts befor e he attacked two loyal Republicans in the press. Why did Kelley and Crawfor d switch par t ies? To quote Steve Kelley We were Southern Democrats who left the party because it became too liberal, and we are both conservatives at heart. I am one Republican who is very happy that they switched. They have served the citizens of Nassau County ver y well. Rebecca Walker Fer nandina Beach Also, freedom from religion E very coin has two sides, and so does every story. Today, from reactions to my c olumn published a couple of weeks ago, I will present the other side. M y side was that public school of f icials in Brawley, Calif., went too far in telling a high school salutatorian that he could not mention God in his graduation speech. They said references to his religion were inappropriate. I maintained and still do that the Free E xercise Clause of the First Amendment a llows a student speaker o r a student writer of an assignment, to talk about his or her r eligion. Her e, then, is the other side from a reader in Florahome: our recent column, Graduation speaker finally g ets his say , spoke vol u mes to me about how hard it is for an even mildly r eligious person to understand the hur t caused by being preached to or witnessed by a person of a religious faithw hich is anathema to his o wn. For those in this country who happen to be religious, if you lump all Christians together they ar e by far the majority That shouldn t mean the r est of us ar e for ced to endure distinctly Christian prayers and testimony at gover nment, school or employment functions. Religion is emotional, spiri t ual stuf f. But in a country with separation o f church and state as a founding principle, t her e r eally should be a fr e edom fr om being forced to listen to other peoples versions. ... es, I would agree, you are right about the freedom of speech aspects of including religious references in the graduation speech. But it seems you missed the point of the school district s r ule. They might have been paranoid that the court will smite them. It is mor e likely it was the desir e to not cause discomfort to anyone. ... A reader in Spruce Pine, N.C., wrote this: ... What the law does mean is that teachers and principals, etc., cant force a student into religious expression. In Mitchell County I would say we have the opposite problem. I would be willing to bet you can find teachers leading mor ning prayer and students getting shamed or feel ing left out if they don t pray The reader in Spruce Pine is right. The U.S. Supreme Court did outlaw state-sanctioned prayer in public schools. But theres a big difference in a public school teacher a state employee voicing a prayer in class and an individual student saying in a speech how much his faith means to him. Decades ago, we students read the Bible and said a prayer befor e high school classes began. Our daughters could not do that. But my wife and I did not depend on our kids public schools to promote faith. That job belonged to us parents and to the chur ch. Id like to think, however, that if one of our daughters had wanted to talk about her faith in a speech at school, she would have been allowed to do so. And without interference from overreaching speech police with black Magic Markers.

H illary Clinton called the Hobby Lobby de cision deeply disturbing. The White House r eacted like the world had just ended. Harry Reid promised that Democrats in Congress would fight to preserve womens access to contraceptive coverage and keep bosses out of the examination room. All this liberal hysteria followed the Supreme Courts ruling on Monday that forpr ofit employers who have r eligious objections cannot be for ced to provide their employees with contraception coverage under the rules of Obamacare. The challenge to whats left of Obamacare in the Hobby Lobby case was brought to the Supreme Court by Hobby Lobby, a national chain of craft stor es owned by evangelical Christians from Oklahoma. Hobby Lobby s owners, and the owners of other businesses that supported them, werent seeking to deprive their 13,000 employees of all contraception coverage in their health plans, just certain kinds that they had religious and moral objections to. The business owners didnt want to be for ced by Obamacar e mandates to pr ovide the morning-after pill and certain intrauterine devices because they consider ed those contraceptive methods to be the equivalent of an abortion. Of course, liberals and progressives i.e., most of the mainstr eam bicoastal media don t care what a bunch of religious people from Oklahoma think. Fr eedom of r eligion my hat. Bar rack, Hillar y and Har r y believe free contraception for every American woman is a new constitutional right and companies should be forced to pay for every dime of it. Hillar y showing her famous empathy for poor people like her, blurted out her knee-jerk spin: Its very troubling that a sales clerk at Hobby Lobby who needs contraception, which is pretty expensive, is not going to get that service thr ough her employer s health care plan because her employer doesnt think she should be using contraception. Hillary got it doubly wrong. She made it seem that contraception is affordable only to non-rich people like her and that Hobby Lobby was seeking to deny its employees all contraception coverage. But exaggeration and fear -mongering is par t of the Democrat game plan. They want all women to think the Hobby Lobby ruling is just the latest campaign in the never -ending Republican/conservative war on women. Democrats already are sending out emails, trying to raise money and rally voters to fight the assault on their contraceptive rights. Theyre accusing Hobby Lobbys owners of wanting to for ce their r eligious beliefs on women, yet Democrats think its perfectly moral and just to use government to force their non-r eligious beliefs on the owners. The news media, of course, played along with Democrats. Instead of tr eating the Supreme Courts decision as news and explaining what it did and did not mean for women and business owners the media focused on the politics and the war on women. The reality of the Hobby Lobby ruling is that no one is telling women they cant get contraceptives. What they ar e saying is that in some cases you are going to have to pay for them yourself. What a concept! BYOC Buy Your Own Contraceptives! I have a question for all you poor women, like Hillar y who think that having to pay for your own contraception is some sort of government oppression: Did you ever think of asking the man your e having sex with to buy his own condoms? Or do you think the government should provide those also? Nobodys taking your contraceptive options away. You still have plenty of choices. Purchase your own bir th contr ol. Don t have sex. Get a new job. Nobody is forced to go to work for Hobby Lobby or any other company If your e not happy with your employers contraception benefit package, find another job where theyll provide all the free things you want.

No, I wasnt imagining t his. Two factors were in my favor: time of day and isolated location. F or once the tides were right for a dawn walk, with the sun rising just about the time the tide was nearing its lowest state. Fourth of July, dawn, was still a bit early for all the beachgoers. By 9 a.m. on the Fourth I heard t hat Peters Point and Scott Road beach accesses were a lready filled to capacity. But at 6 a.m., the hordes were not y et awake. Good luck for me. And as far as location goes, I had that one all figured out too. My husband Bucko was working the early s hift at the Fort Clinch State Park gate, so I decided to v isit the park too, the long way around. Before dawn I d rove to the north end of the island and was the only car there in the citys North End beach access. Great! A perfect start to a perfect Fourth! I was alone on the beach. I walked north towards the Fort Clinch Fishing Pier and beyond as the light started filtering above the horizon. Along the way I saw tracks of a sea turtle that had come to lay eggs. I watched a laughing gull tear into a fresh fish, an osprey p erching on a signal buoy and sandpipers scutt ling along the sand, all the regular cast of c haracters. But wait, what is that light-colored duck with a thin orange beak standing near the surf? I took photos and later learned that it was a red-breasted merganser, normally here in the winter but what was it doing here now? Another snowbird that didnt fly home. Its happening more and more these days, in the a vian and human community alike. W hen I passed the fishing pier I was on my f avorite stretch of beach and today I was not d isappointed. Acr o ss the water I could see Cumberland Island, Ga., and heading out the channel was a bright orange Navy vessel, which I guessed was going out to meet a submarine. Later from the front gate Bucko confirmed this, having admitted a group of Navy families heading to the for t early to wave their h usbands home again. I didn t stick ar ound for the submarine I ve seen their magnificence many times befor e. No, it was the natur e that drew my attention. And this morning, the nature was mostly deer. All along the open areas bordering the beach I saw deer. Mostly they were unper turbed by my quiet ar rival, briefly look ing up from their grazing then settling back in to finish their breakfast. During my three hour, 8-mile hike that morning I counted nine different deer in different sections of the park. Too many deer, in fact, is getting to be a probl em for the habitat at Fort Clinch. In recent years the number of bobcat sighti ngs has declined dramatically, for unknown reasons, but maybe due to an infectious disease. And with few predators, too many fawns produced here are growing up, and having their own offspring. At some point, if not already, the carrying capacity of the park for deer will be exceeded, the vegetation will be o vergrazed, the ecosystem will be unbalanced and other native species will decline in numbers. Heres hoping more bobcats migrate here from neighboring areas to repopulate the park before the situation becomes critical. I continued my walk past the fort, and a round to the River Campground, and then b ack through the main road of the park and o nto the road to the beach parking area. Along the way I peered down gopher tortoise burr o ws and kept my eyes open for snakes crossing the road. On previous trips along this road Ive seen a diamondback rattlesnake (alive and moving) and a coachwhip snake (sadly hit by a car and dying). Im always hopeful for more s nake sightings, but alas, today, nothing. B y the time I hit the beach again I was gett ing hot and tired. By now it was nearly 9 a.m., and sur e enough the beach was coming to life. Her e and there fishermen were parked beside their buckets and poles, walkers were coming my way and families wer e beginning to set up their canopies for the day. The north end b each parking access was filling up. T he crowds over the weekend filled up our b eaches, roads and businesses and thats great for our economy. And whats great for me is finding a way to avoid these cr o wds like I did on the morning of the Fourth. A perfect Fourth of July for one and all! Pat Foster -T urley is a zoologist on Amelia Island. She welcomes your natur e questions and o bservations. Lots of deer can be found grazing around Fort Clinch State Park in the early morning, above. A laughing gull tears into its earlymorning breakfast, right. Even on the F ourth of July, if y our e up early e nough, the beach can be all yours. Dawn was quiet, but by 9 a.m. the beachgoers had taken over.

Florida News Connection TALLAHASSEE A comb ination of warmer weather a nd hur ricane season can bring o ut the door-to-door solicitors in Florida neighborhoods. O ne r e d flag is the company that claims to have extra materials left over from another job nearby and can do the work right away at minimal cost. Dont fall for it, said Dan Hendrickson, a communica t ions coor d inator for the Better Business Bureau, adding that professional contractors estimate the materials theyll need for a project with great accuracy. If a company comes to y our door and says, Hey, weve g ot a bunch of leftover asphalt, c hances ar e it s a company that s kind of flying by the seat of their pants, or maybe really doesnt know what theyre doing, Hendrickson said. In many cases like this, we hear fr om customers who agree to w ork with them and then come b ack and say, Well, the work is h or r ible. They char ged me way mor e than they said they would and now, I dont know how to find them. When dealing with a doorto-door solicitor Hendrickson said, people always should ask f or identification and refere nces, verify the company and t hat the individual works for it, and inquir e about his or her licensing. Florida Attor ney General Pam Bondi has just r eleased a Hur ricane Pr eparedness Guide to help people avoid stormr e lated scams. Hendrickson cautioned people to be wary of high-pressure sales tactics, particularly in the wake of a storm that brings out bogus roofers and tree-removal companies, explaining that anyp aperwork thats signed could b e construed as a contract. Even if they just say ell, this will just kind of get us star t ed to check out your roof, he said. In some cases, weve had complaints where people say, ell, now suddenly theyre (the contractor s a c ontract and in some cases, i t actually is a contract. So, at t hat point, then people have a headache on their hands to tr y and straighten out. He also reminded people that it is, after all, their house so if they don t like wher e the sales pitch is going, they always c an take a step back and close t he door M or e infor mation is online at bbb.or g Floridas consumer fraud hotline is 1-866-966-7226. The Florida attor ney generals tips on avoiding hur ricane-related scams ar e at myfloridale Nearly 800,000 children are r eported missing each year in the United States. According t o the U.S. Department of Justices Office of JuvenileJ ustice and Delinquency Prev ention, about one-third of t hose children have been kidnapped and about one-fifth were taken by non-family members. If an average of 2,185 children are reported missing each day what can we do to protect our kids? We live in a high-tech society that is moving faster every d ay, Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper said. We all have s martphones and computers to stay connected with our kids,b ut we need to continue fingerp rinting our children to protect t hem in the event they go missing. If a child is missing, authorities can use a childs fingerprints to scan into the National Crime Infor mation Center database. These fingerprints cani mmediately be used to help locate a child in a variety of w ays. Fingerprints are composed o f a unique combination of ridges that make patterns ofl oops, arches, ridges, forks, d ots, spurs and other disting uishing marks. Fingerprinting is the only infallible means of identifying individuals, and in 80 years of fingerprint classification, no two identical sets have been found. U nique fingerprints are formed seven months after conc eption. Although the size of each finger continues to grow f rom birth to adulthood, the relative position of ridgesr emains the same. An average f ingerprint yields 175 to 180 p oints of information which makes it a really important source of information in the event of a missing child scenario.

Fingerprint your children The Nassau County Jail & Detention Facility was reaccredited June 24 by the Florida Corrections Accreditation C ommission at its semi-annual c onference in Bonita Springs. S heriff Bill Leeper accepted the FCAC Accreditation Certification on behalf of each member of the detention facility. Maintaining accreditation status ensures the Nassau County Sheriffs Office meets t he highest professional stand ards set by the Florida C orrections Accreditation Commission, said Leeper in a press release. As sheriff of Nassau County I will continue to work tirelessly to meet, and exceed, the high standards set by FCAC. In May 2014 assessment t eams from FCAC conducted i ndependent, intensive and t horough inspections of the detention facility. To earn reaccreditation an agency must comply with all applicable FCAC mandatory standards. Independent assessors were p rovided with complete access t o review written documentat ion, conduct personnel and inmate interviews, observe agency operations and conduct facility inspections to ensure the Sheriffs Office compliance of accreditation standards. The assessment team found the N assau County Sheriffs Office i n compliance with mandatory F CAC accreditation standards and recommended reaccredited status to their respective Commission. Those who are placed in jail usually are facing many challenges in their personal lives.

The Nassau County Clerks Criminal Division par ticipated in the 2014 Biennial Computerized Criminal Histor y Audit. The audit was conductedby the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE May and the r esults exceeded performance standards. The records submitted by the Nassau County Clerk of Cour ts were 100 percent accurate. The audit consists of obtain ing arrest affidavits and arrest fingerprint cards from the agency for the arrest events identified in the audit sample. In addition, copies of the respective final court dispositions wer e r eceived fr om Floridas Clerks of the Courts. These documents were compared to the corresponding criminal r ecor ds in CCH to deter mine the number and percentage of er rors and discrepancies. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement recognized the Clerk John Crawford for the pr ompt attention and quick turnaround in returning the r equested sour ce documents needed to complete the audit. The FDLE also encouraged the clerk to continue his commitment to provide accurate and complete criminal historyr ecor ds in Florida. Even gr e at parents can forget a child in the back seat, but caregivers who are unaccustomed to transporting children are especially prone to forgett ing. T hink about the last time y our routine was interrupted. Maybe you forgot something, or were afraid you might forget something. Or maybe you decided to leave your child alone in the car, thinking Ill just run into the store for a minute. In either case, itsi mportant to know the risks a nd consequences associated w ith leaving kids in cars espe cially hot cars. Shopping with childr e n can be challenging. The process of buckling and unbuckling a child repeatedly to take him/her in and out of the carf or errands may become u npleasant for both of you, s aid Sheriff Bill Leeper in a press release. As tempting as it is to leave your child behind in the car, leaving a youngster unattended in a vehicle might lead to serious consequences. Risks: In 10 minutes, a car can h eat up 20 degr ees Fahr enheit. Cracking a window does little to keep the car cool. W i th temperatur e s in the 60s, your car can heat up to w ell above 110 degrees. A childs body temperature can rise up to five times faster than an adult s Heatstr oke can happen when the temperature is as low as 57 degr ees outside! A child can die when h is/her temperature reaches 1 07. C onsequences The heat-related death of a child. Misdemeanor with fines as high as $500 and even imprisonment in some states. Felony depending on the s tate, if bodily harm results f rom leaving kids alone in a hot c ar. According to Florida State Statute 316.6135, par e nts, legal guardians or caregivers of children younger than 6 may not leave them unattended or unsu per vised in any kind of motor v ehicle for longer than 15 minu tes. If the vehicle is running, or if the child is in any danger, no amount of unattended time is acceptable. Officers are instructed to r emove the unattended child immediately. Individuals could f ace fines up to $500 or jail t ime. A ny Florida law enforcement officer who sees a child alone or unsuper v ised in a motor vehicle is instr ucted to do whatever is necessary to r emove the child fr om the vehi cle. After r emoving the child, t he officer places paperwork n otification of the childs wherea bouts inside the car. If the officer is immediately unable to find the par e nts, legal guar d ian or caregiver, the child will be placed with the Department of Health and Rehabilitative Ser vices. Pr e vention tips: Never leave a child alone in a car. Dont let your kids play in an unattended vehicle. Teach t hem that a vehicle is not a play a rea. Never leave infants or children in a parked vehicle, even if the windows are partially open. Keep a large teddy bear or other stuffed animal in the car seat when its empty. Move the teddy bear to the front seatw hen you place the child in the s eat as a visual r eminder If you ar e dropping your children off at childcare, but nor m ally your spouse or par t ner drops them off, have your spouse or partner call you to make sure they were not left in the car. Become vigilant about l ooking in the vehicle befor e l ocking the door. Always look front and back before walking away always! Leaving a child alone in a vehicle even for just a minute is a bad idea, Leeper said. Left unattended, a child in av ehicle is vulnerable to abduct ion and dehydration. Please d ont take the chance.

Dont leave kids in a hot car! APUBLICSERVICEANNOUNCMENT BYTHENEWS-LEADER As tempting as it is to leave your child behind in the car, leaving a youngster unattended in a vehicle might lead to serious consequences. . Leaving a child alone in a vehicle even for just a minute is a bad idea BILL LEEPER N ASSAU COUNTY SHERIFF Ne w la w on child car seats T AMPA Gov. Rick Scott signed legislation that r equires children to be properly restrained in passenger vehicles thr ough age five, ensuring that Florida no longer has the weakest child passenger safety law in the countr y. Previously, Florida law required that only children through three years old be secured in a separate car seat. Children ages four and older were required to be restrained but could use the vehicles safety belts which are designed for adults. Adult passenger safety belts do not fit pr op erly on young children and can cause them injury in a crash, said Kevin Bakewell, senior vice president and chief public af fairs Of ficer for AAA The Auto Club Group. AAA is pleased the legislature and the governor took action to protect children by requiring they be properly restrained in an appropriate safety seat. Motor vehicle injuries are the leading cause of death among childr en in the U.S., but many of these deaths can be prevented by placing children in ageand size-appr opriate car seats. While this law does not cover all childr en who need to be safely r estrained, it is a step in the right dir ection, said Bakewell. On matters of public safety, Floridas parents look to state law for solid guidance. That s why this law is so important. AAA, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommend that children who have outgrown their five-point harness car seat by weight or height use a booster seat until they reach the height of 4-feet, nine inches (typically between the ages of 8-12). A booster seat simply boosts a child up and allows for proper placement of the lap and shoulder belt, which is crucial for safety during a crash. Without a booster seat, safety belts improperly cross over a childs soft stomach and neck, which can lead to serious debilitating injuries in the event of a crash. Use of booster seats can r educe injuries by 45 percent compared to using an adult safety belt alone.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK OUTDOORS/ TIDES WEDNESDAY, JULY9, 2014NEWS-LEADER/ FERNANDINABEACH, FL ORIDA BETH JONES/NEWS-LEADERY ulee junior second baseman Zack McCue is the most valuable player on the 2014 all-Nassau County high school baseball team.Hornet heads up all-county teamBETH JONESNe w s-LeaderIt was a successful season for the Yulee Hornets but it didn't start out that way. "We started off, got no hits and lost 8-0," Yulee High School junior second baseman Zack McCue said. "We were beat pretty bad by Sandalwood. "We went to practice the next day and Coach Dean told us not to worry about that game. We started hitting the ball a lot better. And pitching. My boy Lake (Bedell)." The Hornets rebounded to ride a seven-game winning streak. And in a rematch with Sandalwood, Yulee turned the tables on the larger school. "We can't lose to this team twice,"McCue said. "We beat them. It was a good game. That was pretty fun for me. I like the close ones." The Hornets didn't fare so well in their first encounter with McCue's former team, the West Nassau Warriors. "It was a big game for me because it was my old team and I wanted to beat them more than anything," he said. "We were winning and we blew it." But again, Yulee avenged a loss, beating West Nassau in the district championship game later in the season. McCue transferred to Y ulee last year to be closer to Florida State College at Jacksonville's Yulee campus, where he takes part in the dual enrollment program. "It's just five minues from campus,"he said. Academics are a priority for the most valuable player on the 2014 all-Nassau County high school baseball team. "I get in trouble if I get bad grades,"the honor student student said. "I haven't gotten a C in high school." He boasts a 4.1 weighted grade point average and this fall will be taking one class at the high school and three college courses at FSCJ. McCue got his start in the sport at the age of four. He's pretty much always been a middle infielder. "Iused to catch a little but I don't like catching," he said. Second base seems to be his niche.

W ithin four years of the diagnosis, O'Day lost his life to this progressive and fatal disease, which slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. In 2002, O'Day left behind his wife, Ardith, their five children and 12 grandchildren and many grieving friends and family members. O'Day was an avid golfer and the entire family was very athletic. "We all played tennis and golf, we loved sports," says son Mark O'Day. "My father eventually became president of the Amelia Island Club in 1999, and he had so many friends here. It was only natural that after his passing we would want to hold a golf tournament in his honor." Mark O'Day decided to start the yearly golf event to honor his father's memory and raise money for the Florida ALS Chapter. That was 10 years ago, and so far, they have raised over $125,000. The tournament will be held Aug. 1 at Long Point Amelia Island at The Amelia Island Club. Registration and warm-up lunch buffet will be held from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. A shotgun start is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. and followed at 5 p.m. by a dinner reception with raffle prizes, awards and silent auction. All the proceeds from the event benefit the ALS Association Florida Chapter. "Besides money to fund r esearch, proceeds from the tournament also help families whose loved ones are suffering from the disease," Mark O'Day said. "The outpouring from the community and our sponsors has been astonishing."

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK R ed snapper season opening FridayRecreational fishermen will be able to harvest red snapper beginning Friday. The red snapper mini-season will be open for eight days, consisting of weekend openings. The first two open weekends will be this Friday through Sunday and July 1820. The last open weekend will be July 25-26. The bag limit in federal waters will be one fish per person per day and there is no minimum size limit. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are asking anglers to help collect vital information about the Atlantic red snapper fishery. Researchers at the FWC's Fish and Wildlife Research Institute will be out along Florida's east coast during each day of the season, asking recreational fishers about their red snapper trips and their catch. This special survey is needed to gather more precise information on the numbers of red snapper caught by r ecreational anglers. Researchers will also collect biological samples of harvested fish to help determine the age of each red snapper. Fishermen will first clean their red snapper catches and then donate the carcasses to the FWC officer for research. The tiny ear bone of the red snapper gives vital information to researchers, including the health and age of the fish. Last year researchers collected 1,701 samples from red snapper harvested during the three-day recreational season. "Information shared by r ecreational fishers during this cooperative research effort is an important opportunity for fisheries scientists to obtain valuable data that can be used to assess the health of the stock and sustainability of the fishery," explained FWRI researcher Beverly Sauls. "Data provided by recreational anglers during the 2013 season helped to make the 2014 season possible; these data are integral to understanding the Atlantic r ed snapper fishery." While the federal opening will have no minimum size limit and a bag limit of one fish per person per day, in Florida state waters (from shore to three nautical miles), there is a 20-inch total length minimum size limit and a bag limit of two fish per person per day. Vessels with red snapper smaller than the state's minimum size limit must travel through state waters without stopping and have fishing gear stowed.

Giant red snapper weighing to over 30 pounds will be caught during the upcoming red snapper weekends. r eport it to the Angler Tag Return Hotline (800-3674461). When calling, anglers should indicate species, tag number, date and time of capture, catch location, fish length, type of bait used and whether the fish was kept or r eleased. If it is released, the angler is asked to leave the tag in place to help with future data collection. During last year's mini-red snapper season, there were several area sport fishing boats participating in the open red snapper weekends. Some of the best red snapper fishing was coming from FB, FC, HH and the Amberjack Hole. Bottom fishermen this year have been reporting excellent fishing for red snapper that seem to get in their way when targeting other species of bottom fish. The harvesting of red snapper has been close for some four fishing seasons now by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The next major kingfish tournament will be this weekend with the Ancient City Game Fish Challenge. The popular Southern Kingfish Association-sanctioned kingfish tournament will be held from St. Augustine's Camachee Cove Yacht Harbor.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK P AGE 4B W EDNESDAY J ULY 9, 2014 N EWS -L EADER / F ERNANDINA B EACH FL Deja vu date night at the local Laundromat Never ever take your washing machine for granted or your dryer or dishwasher. We forget how dependent we are on these w onderful machines until one quits or needs medical attention. The Anderson household experienced a breakdown this time our trusty washing machine. Very bad timing. In this hot, humid weather with frequent changes of clothes we run the washer 24-7. There is always a pile of sweaty clothes waiting for their turn in the washing machine. Maybe i t decided to go on strike? As I write, it is in many pieces waiting for a replacement part. All fingers are crossed that it will not be declared dead. A new washing machine is NOT on our list of must-haves. No washing machine? Laundromat time. As the laundry pile grew, the Big Guy began to avoid me. I cornered h im and suggested that we consider the situation not a problem but an opportunity. We would go on a Laundromat date. We arrived at the island Laundromat. Talk about deja vu. Memories came rushing back. Loading clothes in basement washing machines and pushing quarters in the slots. My first washing machine was a lmost as treasured as my first car. It took years for me to stop hoarding quarters. Old habits are hard to break. Nothing had changed. We faced walls of machines ready to accept laundry of all sizes and shapes. No quarters these days. You buy a card that is then used in the machines and allows you to buy laundry supplies out of a vending machine. We q uickly got two loads going one white and one everything else. We left our clothes tumbling in warm sudsy water and headed out for a pizza and a cold beer. Back to the Laundromat and pulling the wet, heavy clothes out and into baskets and then into a huge dryer. Off again, this time for dessert ice cream on Centre Street. Back again, loading c lothes and home to fold. Big night for the Andersons. So who thought of Laundromats and pay for doing laundry? In the United Kingdom they are called launderettes. The word Laundromat is a trademark of Westinghouse. In Texas you might go to a washaterias. It is thought Laundromat isa play on Automat a concept made popul ar by Horn and Hardett that dispensed sandwiches, pies, etc. when you put coins in slots. This all happened around 1945 and those of us that remember Horn and Hardat know it was not automated you could see busy hands replacing pie slices behind the glass. One Laundromat date is enough, Big Guy and I agree. We eagerly await the n eeded part for our washing machine and have renewed respect for our machines.

LoGuidice began working with exotic animals in the 1 980s and founded Catty Shack Ranch to provide a safe and healthy environment for big cats and other exotics. The facility is fully licensed by both state and federal governments and run solely by volunteers, including an allvolunteer medical team. M any of the animals were confiscated from facilities unable to care for them or were acquired from owners who could no longer handle their house pets. Once rehomed at Catty Shack Ranch, the animals are never sold or traded and will live out their l ives at the sanctuary. The facility is now home to nearly 50 animals, primarily big cats including tigers, lions, cougars, leopards and bobcats as well as coatimundi ( members of the raccoon fami ly) and foxes. The animals eat more than 600 pounds of meat each day. Funding comes from private donations, the sale of merchandise at the Catty Shack Ranch thrift shop and the price of tours. Though the sanctuary is only open to the public a few times a month, more than 5 0,000 people visited in 2013 and it has been named the number one attraction in Jacksonville by TripAdvisor.
