MARY MAGUIRE News-Leader Signs are like magic when it comes to selling cars. If weve got an older car and we want it to go away, we p ut a sign on it, said Paul Clark, owner of Paul Clark Ford in Yulee. And whiz-bang, like wizardry. Gone. Clark, who spoke to the Nassau County Planning & Zoning Board at a public hearing July 15 about proposed changes to the sign ordinance, wiped his hands together seve ral times and then held them up to underscore his thoughts o n the easy ef ficiency of a simple sign. B ut the conversation has been anything but easy. The board has been discussing changes to the sign ordinance for months and cant agree on what to do. They agreed to continue the discussion at the next meeting. Some members want to r emove restrictions. Everybody talks about less and less g over nment and here we are putting up m ore and more government, said board member Jimmy Higginbotham. I dont want to put these people out of business. And other members want to contr ol the clutter. What brought this to light was the v ast amount of abuse on A1A. W e let people abuse putting o ut banners and signs. Come on, the lady standing out ther e with the mechanical arm? The whole idea was to reinforce the overlay district, said board member and local realtor Bruce Jasinsky. Nobody wants to put anybody out of business. The overlay district is the shopping cor ridor from I-95 to about the Shave Bridge. For months the board has been h earing from business owners who have received violat ions for their signs displayed along SR 200/A1A. The boar d h as also hear d pr esentations from sign sellers about how effective signs can be to move merchandise. A struggle to regulate signs on A1A $1.00 SIGNSContinued on 3A MARY MAGUIRE N e ws-Leader Don t call them food tr u cks. In Nassau County wer e calling them mobile food vend ing vehicles. I know that sounds painful, said Growth Management Director Peter King. But I couldnt just call it a food truck. King said he had to cover a lot of the bases to simplify a new program for vendors to sell food at Peters Point, the county beachfr ont park on the south end of Amelia Island. King said the new ordinance for mobile food vending vehicles would include sales at tr ucks, trailers and car ts. He pr esented the 2 1/2-page ordinance to the Nassau County Planning & Zoning Board at its meeting July 15. I did a lot of slashing to make this as simple as possible, said King. The plan was unanimously approved and will require approval by the county commission. The plan calls for six per mits, though discussion last month called for three permits. The change, said King, is to accommodate a r equest to include r etirees who are selling hot dogs fr om carts at the park, albeit illegally. Id go to six, said board member Jeanne Scott. What if someone is sick? She also wanted to know why the ordinance is limited to Peters Point, and was told by board Chair Tom Ford that this is being considered a pilot program. The plan includes infor mation on per mitting, signage, waste management and enforcement. ant me to go thr ough it? said King. No, said board member Jimmy L. Higginbotham. Ford said the food truck ordinance started with a request from the executive director of the Amelia Island/Fernandina Beach/Yulee Chamber of Commerce.

The specialized pediatric health care system provides expert care for all orthoped ic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip andp alate, regardless of the families abili ty to pay for services. Since 1922, S hriners Hospitals f or Children has provided care to more than 1 million c hildren. The first Shriners Hospitals for Children opened in the 1920s were established primarily to care f or children who had contracted polio. Today, there a re 20 Shriners Hospitals for Children providing care for children with all types of orthopedic conditions, i ncluding clubfoot, hip disord ers, limb deficiencies and d eformities, scoliosis, and orthopedic difficulties related to cerebral palsy and other neuromuscular conditions. In the mid-1960s, Shriners became aware of a l ack of medical expertise in p ediatric burn care and o pened three hospitals specializing in acute and rehabilitative burn care. These hospitals are the only ones initially established exclu sively for the tr eatment of pediatric bur n s and r e lated conditions. A fourth hospital in its h ealth care system offering t reatment for burns also provides care for orthopedic conditions, spinal cor d injur y and cleft lip and palate. These hospitals continue to be pioneers in pedi atric burn treatment and r esearch and are recognized a s leaders in the develop m ent of improved and innovative treatment techniques. In the early 1980s, the Shriners frater nity opened the nations first pediatric spinal cor d injur y r ehabilita tion centers. Ther e, patients f ound a complete range of s ervices needed to recover t o the fullest extent possible. Today, these rehabilitation centers continue to pr ovide the best possible compr ehensive care. Cleft lip and palate is the health care systems fourth s ervice line. Facial clefts are one of the most common b irth defects in the U.S. Despite the frequency of its occurrence, and the severity of the deformities, care for patients with cleft lip and p alate can be difficult to obtain. Shriners Hospitals f or Children is committed to improving care for children w ith this condition through a comprehensive, coordinated program of clinical excell ence, teaching and r esearch. Admission to Shriners hospitals is based solely on medical need. All children, under the age of 18, are eligible for care if there is a reasonable possibility theyc ould benefit from the specialized services available. A ll services are provided regardless of the ability to p ay. Shriners Hospitals for Children is dedicated to conducting innovative research to provide answers to complex medical difficulties affecting children. The orga-n izations research efforts n ot only benefit patients, t hey contribute to the overall body of medical knowledge. The health care system is also pr oud of its r o le in med ical education. In the past 20 years, approximately 9,500 physicians have receivedr esidency education or postg raduate fellowships at S hriners hospitals. At all Shriners Hospitals for Children locations, patients not only r eceive expert treatment but also emotional and developmental care that fosters healthy,h igh-quality independent l ives. T o pr ovide such com p r e hensive car e, the health care system depends on the gener o sity of donors to car r y out this mission of impr oving the lives of chil dren.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 3A W EDNESDAY J ULY 23, 2014 NEWS News-Leader nr n n r Im here for people who show up, said board member Jeanne Scott. Board member Sharyl Wood took issue with that statement. The people who didnt receive (violation) notices dont know were here talking about this, said Wood. We are here to repr esent a collective community. And this area we wanted to develop in a certain w ay ... signs of a (certain) height or a (certain) size. Several changes to the ordinance have been proposed, and Growth Management Director Peter King outlined them for discussion. He typically highlights changes to documents with various colors and annot ations, as appropriate, to make it easier for board members, and the public, to follow. T he proposed changes allow more signs for businesses with more frontage along the roadway, such as car dealerships, establishing requirements for decorative sign holders, and allowing electronic messages to change three times each day, rather than once. I think youre wasting your time doing what youre all doing because its not going to change the aesthetic of A1A, said Burger King owner Marilyn Armstrong. Armstrong has been using electronic signs at her fast food restaurants on South E ighth Street in Fernandina Beach and in Callahan for years and she wants the mess ages to change more than once a day. Thats all thats allowed under the current rules. She had repeatedly been in violation for flipping the messages. What Armstrong did not tell the board was that she was less than 24 hours away from selling the three Burger King establ ishments she owned in Nassau County. S he also has one in Y ulee on A1A, just e ast of I-95. She sold them July 16 to South Coast Enterprises, based in Jacksonville. The new owner knows about the sign tr ou ble. I guess its an issue Ill now have to get involved in, unfortunately, said ownerV ance Rossell, who said he now owns 14 B urger Kings in Northeast Florida. I n a phone inter v iew July 16, he said he is planning to immediately r e model the restaurants in Yulee and Callahan and likes the idea of using electr onic signs at both locations. o me its a cleaner look. On boards individual letters can fly away or the words can be misspelled and then hard to change, he said. The board also heard from Sandra A utore of Lofton Creek Seafood. She said s he has pr operty along A1A in Yulee with v arious shops, including a bail bond business, tire company and the seafood business. She unfurled a sign imprinted with a color ful graphic of a shrimp. aking this down hurt business, said Autore. It dropped 40 percent. Janie Thomas asked the board for a d irectional sign for the Church of Christ. Ther e are no balloons but it would be p ermanent, she said. She also said signs arent the only issue along the r o adway ou want to beautify A1A? How about mow? Its a disgrace. The mowing needs to be addressed too, she said. King told the board he had looked into sign requirements at the location for the b ail bondsman. They can have 16-feet d ir ectional signs and I will be happy to w ork with them, said King. Peter, youre still restricting these business owners, said Higginbotham. Boar d Chair T o m For d said someone is going to have to compromise, and he asked the business owners to put pen to paper and let King know the rules theyc ould live with.

T OM FORD, CHAIR N ASSAU COUNTY PLANNING & ZONING BOARD MARY MAGUIRE/NEWS-LEADER This Burger King sign on Eighth Street has violated county law by changing its message more than once a day. Utilities seek to reduce costs for conservation Florida News Connection TALLAHASSEE How m uch you spend on your power bill for the next 10 years and b eyond will depend on the outcome of a meeting by the states Public Service Commission (PSC Per state law, the PSC meets every five years to establish the states energy conservation p lan, and utility companies are pushing to cut conservation p rograms by more than 90 percent. Currently, power bills in Florida include a monthly charge for utilities to invest in initiatives like customer rebates for new windows or insulation. Susan Glickman, Florida d irector with the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, says u tility companies hope to remove that charge and reduce consumer access to rebates. This is a giant step backw ards for consumers in Florida, says Glickman. Ultimately, this will raise peoples electric rates, not lower them. It will saddle future generations with power plants we d ont need that will continue to p ollute the environment. S he says if utilities are succ essful, consumers will be paying for ener g y development they dont need. The utilities argue energy efficiency is e xpensive and the state needs more plants to meet projected demand in coming years. Glickman is joining members of other conservation groups and city leaders from across the state at the PSC meeting this week. Jenna Garland with the Sierra Club s ays rolling back energy conservation programs hurts the w orking families of the state. These are just massive rollbacks that are going to eliminate programs working families need to take advantage of opportunities to lower their power bills, upgrade to more e fficient appliances, and make their homes and small busin esses more efficient, says Garland. According to Glickman, the incentive for Florida utilities is on building power plants rather than saving energy. Theyre like waiters in a r estaurant. They make more money if they sell you dessert and that extra bottle of wine, says Glickman. They get a g uaranteed rate of return on w hat they spend, so the more m oney they spend, the more m oney they make and they dont want to help Florida consumers use less energy and save money The PSC hearing will continue through at least today.

Records, of varying types, can become scratched, outdated or broken. W ith that in mind, lets assess the public record herei n Nassau County on certain publicized and contested i ssues. And try to set the record straight. Enough spin has been applied to these issues to make residents dizzy with c onfusion. And this can be hazardous to your financialh ealth. The paramount issue is a t ax increase proposed by Nassau County commissioners frugal custodians of their budget in recent years. However, a pro-spending movement has disseminated from the office of County Manager Ted Selby and rippled through the commission. T o put them on record, t he commissioners backing a t ax increase are Danny Leeper, Junior Boatright and Pat Edwards (in order of their conviction). So when you see a $100 or $200 or $300 incr ease in your next tax bill, you can credit them. T here is no shortage of c onfusion over the county b udget. Selbys office has c onvinced these commission ers that the only way to balance the budget is with a substantial tax incr ease the first in years. Others have countered that notion. Several alterna-t ive plans could balance the b udget using the substantial r eserves accumulated in recent years (excluding essential reserves for an emer gency). These options have been mostly ignor ed. Commissioner Barry Holloway voted against a taxi ncrease in the 3-2 vote, even t hough he previously defende d a hike. The other dissenter, Steve Kelley, has promoted a viable plan that avoids a tax incr ease, as has County Clerk John Crawford. The commission has not r eally given Crawfor d the c omptroller of county funds a n oppor tunity to present his p lan. In addition, most of the same commissioners want to bor r o w money for a new sherif f s headquarters. This is also a questionable ventur e. Again, this avoids the use of r eserves, which c ould easily cover the $10 m illion projected cost of the new sheriffs office (the funds have even been earmarked for this purpose). So not only are these comm issioners encumber-i ng the citizenry with a tax increase, they also want to indebt us f or years to come.M eanwhile, they are h ardly questioning the projected cost of the sheriffs office. For instance, Sheriff Bill Leeper passed on acquiring an old school in Yulee (at an attractive price) and retrofitting it for the new headquarters. Leeper instead wants a new building. T here is no denying that t he sheriffs department e ventually needs a new headquarters. The old building on A1A has outlived its usage. However, there are sheriffs departments around the countr y that have constructed new headquarters atm ore reasonable costs. But l ike with the tax issue, there a ppears to be an all-or-nothi ng mindset her e For instance, in Loudoun County, Va., a new sheriff headquar ters was built and equipped for $6.7 million. And the population in Loudoun is 350,000 versus7 0,000 in Nassau County. I n Berkeley County, W.Va. ( pop. 104,000), a new sheriffs building was constructed out of an old food market. The cost: $3.2 million for ther enovation, furnishings and equipment. The Berkeley project also ridded the towno f Martinsburg of an empty b uilding. H ere in Florida, a new public safety complex in Pinellas County dwar f s these two examples with a price tag of $80 million. However, the costs ar e being cover ed by a Penny for Pinellas r ef e rendum (meaning this decis ion went to the voters). E ven so, Pinellas has nearly a million residents more than 10 times what we have. W ithin the Nassau County budget, the sherif s and fir e departments engulf a lar ge part of the expenses. T hese ar e certainly vital s ervices (along with rescue). However, for a small, slowly growing county like Nassau, these costs as well as those in other departments should be scrutinized within the budgeting process. All the spin aside, a tax incr ease should be a lastgasp option. Several hearings ar e upcoming on the pr oposed county budget when commissioners must go on the record with their final decisions.

Bayacal says being a Volunteen is a wonderful opportunity for those considering a m edical career. I like seeing how a medical f acility works in person. Hoping for a career in pharm acy, Bayacal comes by her medical interest naturally, witha mom who works at Baptist and an aunt and several cousins also in the field. She spends her volunteer hours in patient care, giving out water, picking up food trays, cleaning wheelchairs, escorting patients to the lab and stocking supplies. Leisure activities include reading and playing piano. Sheppards volunteer hours are spent in the main lobby, answering phones or escorting v isitors and patients to various locations in the hospital.

She also has helped out with the hospitals annual jewelry sale. She gets a kick out of some of the older patients, saying they remind her of her grandparents.

MARY MAGUIRE News-Leader A cost of living salary inc rease is terrific. Receiving a pay raise because your boss t hinks youre doing a great job is satisfying. Most of the 302 people who work for the Nassau County Commission are up for a 2.5 percent salary increase for fiscal 2014-15. A ccording to the countys human resources office, about 5 0 people are not eligible for the increase because they are at the top of the pay scale for their position. And this is not a cost of living increase. Is this the right time for a raise? T he county faces a $12 million budget shortfall and, for t he moment, is balancing its budget in part with a property tax increase. Absolutely, yes, said Commission Chair Barry Holloway. In a phone interview last week, Holloway said that by and l arge the BOCC employees work hard and deserve the m oney. So, despite the dollar difficulties, hes a pay pal. Our Road & Bridge Department could probably use another 25 employees. Everyone is d oing more and more with the same. T he county currently spends $12.7 million annually on staff salaries. The proposal for next year is $12.9 million. Holloway is concerned about the numbers. He was one of two commissioners who voted No for the $62.7 million spending plan and its tax hike at a special m eeting held earlier this month. Commissioner Steve Kelley w as the other. B oth Kelley and Holloway a re up for re-election this year. T he commissioners who voted y es, including Danny Leeper W alter Jr. Boatright and Pat Edwards, are not. Here is how Kelley answered a question about whether staff deserves an increase this y ear. Its somewhat unfair to say that they are not deserving. Thats not what Im trying to s ay. From what Ive seen, Nassau County has some dedic ated employees, said Kelley. When it comes to salary, Kelley thinks merit is not the only consideration. Does the economy dictate when the salaries are given out? We should give out raises when people deserve them and when we have financial ability to do t hat, he said. Kelley has another concern w hen it comes to staff salaries. H e said the salaries of C ounty Manager Ted Selby and C ounty Attorney David Hallman a r e too high and he is planning t o bring it up for discussion in September. He said that is the earliest he can do it under terms of their contracts. Human resources said H allman is the countys highe st paid employee at $153,000, not including benefits. Im saying that we need to o pen (the contracts if there are savings for the taxp ayer, said Kelley. They have some very lucrative contracts. I realize that when they were written money was flowing like water and thats not the case today, he said. Taxpayers are paying more for county commission salaries, which are set by the Florida L egislature. Holloway, Kelley and their b oard colleagues each received a $1,603 pay increase this year. A nd, according to human r esources, commissioners have b een given a raise ever y year for t he last four years. The current salary per commissioner is $44,258. Last year it was $42,655. Their pay package includes health care and a r etirement savings plan. firstname.lastname@example.org 6 A CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK W EDNESDAY J ULY 23, 2014 NEWS News-Leader POLITICS IN BRIEF R R e e g g i i s s t t e e r r t t o o v v o o t t e e The deadline for new voter registration and party c hanges for the primary election is July 28.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 7A W EDNESDAY J ULY 23, 2014 OPINION News-Leader VOICE OF THE PEOPLE D D o o g g g g i i e e D D i i n n i i n n g g I was saddened to see that Doggie Dining is now allowed (County permits Doggie Dining, July 16). I will not be dining at any of the restaurants that do allow this. I went to North Carolina (Chimney Rock) last year. They allowed pets in the dining area. There were two p atrons on the patio besides us. One patron had four dogs with her and the other patron had two. The animals stunk, they barked and/or growled continuously at the other dogs there. It was not a pleasant eating experience. I do not understand the need to bring your animal with you to dinner. J oanne St. Ores Yulee T T o o d d o o o o r r n n o o t t t t o o d d o o Since it is an even-numbered year, most of the politicians will be breaking out the smoke and mirror acts. The blue smoke and hot air w ill start rising to the ozone layer. Sorry about that, Al. The politicians will start telling you all the wonderful things they have done and what they will do if elected. The robocalls will start and always come at mealtime. What a refreshing change it might be if they told you what they havent done and dont intend to do. Most politicians should heed what a majority of taxpaying vot e rs want, rather than what a few w ealthy donors want. You can usua lly look at a candidates contribut ion list and see who is going to get the ripe plums for the next four years. All eligible voters should make an extra effort to go vote. Stanley Bunch Fernandina Beach I I r r a a q q A recent Voice of the People contributor missed something in his rant r egar d ing Ron Sapp. He missed the fact that Obama probably got elected because of the electorate s dismay over the Iraq W ar. R emember Bushs Mission A ccomplished? He and Vice President Cheney told the American people that Iraq had weapons of mass destr uction, when in fact that wasnt true. While the letter writer mentions many scandals (r eal or imagined) t hat have occurred under President O bama, nothing can compare to b eing lied into a war that cost thousands of lives and trillions of dollars. Loraine Chinner y Fer nandina Beach R R u u l l e e s s o o f f t t h h e e T T r r a a i i l l R e: Rules of the T rail (July 1 8). A fter reading the article I reread it to make sure of what I was reading was r e ally ther e and not a mirage. I am appalled at the minuteness and extent of the rules that someone or group wants applied to a publicly funded recreationalp athway. In plain words, its a blat ant attempt by a few to limit the t rails use to a few pedestrians and a few bicyclists (since most bicyclists still use the A1A bike lane because of all the stops required on the trail). Anyone with knowledge of horses would not want to use a paved surface for riding since its hard on horses hooves. As for ATVs, they are combustion-engine-propelled and are already classed as a motor vehicle and, as such, banned. Oh yes, the poor dog, on only a sixfoot leash. What about the busi ness end that can be dangerous? Shouldn t they be muzzled? What of the seeing eye dog using a halter, guess they are OK since not mentioned in the r ules. Then skate boards were not mentioned so I guess they ar e OK, but to me they would be mor e danger ous to a pedestrian; and what of other banned items such as a Segway which can stop immediately and hold position. The proposed rules did not avoid blatant discrimination against all handicaps by noting powered wheelchairs ar e OK, but then slams the door on vast majority of other handicapped people who might be able to use powered scooters, tricycles, bicycles and, yes, non-highway-equipped golf carts. Hopefully higher authority will see through the sham of a few in their attempt to limit a significant majority particular handicaps use of this public trail and say a r esounding no to this mirage of rules. Joe Reece Amelia Island I I s s r r a a e e l l v v s s . H H a a m m a a s s : : A view from inside. I am an ac countant and financial and management advisor who had a long executive law enforcement career with the U.S. Treasury Depar tment. I was a U.S. T r easur y consultant to the Palestinian A uthority working in Ramallah from 2 011 thr ough 2012 to assist them b uild a financial and management infrastructure that meets international standards and prevents terrorist money passing into the state. A friend, watching TV news r eports of damage done in the Gaza S trip by Israeli warplanes, asked why dont they leave those poor people alone? That reaction shows the trap people fall into when they form an opinion from an isolated TV image without any effort to understand the issues complexities. And the Israel/Palestine issue is a complex one. T elevision, an entertainment m edium, pr efers to show people b eing pulled out of a demolished building, or a man carrying the body of a child, than boring scenes of peo ple rushing into bomb shelters or flashes of light in the sky. Unless people investigate and look behind the ugly scenes, they can easilyc ome to the wrong conclusion. H amas, the ter r orist organizat ion that controls Gaza, not the West B ank, is an exper t at pr opaganda. They put the grisly scenes of Israeli destruction on Facebook and YouTube and those images are immediately flashed around the world, exciting world opinion against Israel. W hat isn t broadcast is the cons tant fear in which Israelis live. M any Americans get annoyed with airpor t security; imagine if that same security existed at ever y r estaurant, grocery store, caf and shopping mall! In Israel that is reality; patrons are searched for bombs to guard against suicide bombers. T hen there are the rockets that h ave consistently rained over Israel f or years. In the autumn of 2012 my wife, Terri, and I resided in Jerusalem, within blocks of the Old City, near the Dome of the Rock, one of the holiest sites in Islam. There was an alert of an incoming r ocket and we had to take shelter. O ur building had a built-in bomb s helter It occur r e d to us that if Hamas didnt care if they destroyed the holiest mosque, then they cared for nothing except ter r or! This and other factors weighed into our decision to return to the U.S. The Hamas rockets are not controlled ballistic missiles. They are unguided Syrian M-302 rockets that could land on a house or in an empty field. They are weapons of terror. Since Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip in 2005, the Hamas ter r orists have fired more than 11,000 rockets into Israel. Fortunately, Israel developed with American financial assistance the Iron Dome system that intercepts these rockets. But not all of them. A Hamas r ocket blew up a gas station in Ashdod some 100 miles away. Another destroyed an Israeli house. Sir ens aler t Israelis who have approximately 15 seconds to take shelter, consequently Israeli deaths are limited but with many wounded. (You can get an app for your smar t phone called r ocket aler that will alert you every time a Hamas rocket is fired at Israel and its destination.) Israels response has been to find and destroy the rocket launchers, the rocket caches and Hamas command and control centers. But with Hamas disregard for human life, they put the launchers next to homes and hospitals, mosques are used to stor e r ockets. This is why we get TV images of mosques and hospitals bombed and civilians killed. My son, who completed two tours while in the U.S. Army in Iraq, was often fired upon from mosques. Special permission was needed from commanders to fir e back at the mosque as it was a religious building. (It is my opinion that a mosque used for military purposes is no l onger a religious center but a valid m ilitar y target.) I srael routinely warns Gaza residents before there is an air strike. But Hamas encourages people not to evacuate. At one targeted house of a Hamas leader, women and child ren were sent to the roof, so when t hey were killed Hamas used their d eaths as propaganda. Hamas and its rockets are part of bigger geopolitics. Hamas is the creation of Iran, which provides the rockets and other weapons and gives them their marching orders. The current crisis triggered by the kidnapping and killing of threeI sraeli teenagers and the increased H amas r ocket attacks undoubt e dly was ordered from Teheran to divert world attention from other issues. Hamas is politically weak because of its failure, after nine years, to improve the lot of Gazans. The recent Hamas agreement with the Palestinian Authority (PA) int he West Bank was an effort to s tr engthen Hamas standing with P alestinians, to create a united front a gainst Israel. This agr e ement scut tled the peace plan U.S. Secr e tar y of State John Kerry was working on with PA President Mahmoud Abbas, because while the PA recognizes Israel, Hamas is vowed to destroy Israel (and all Jews ever ywher e). W est Bank Palestinians have w orked well with Israel to create a g r o wing economy and mutual safe ty Peace with the W e st Bank is pos sible but not with Hamas. Palestinians in the West Bank strive for a better life and work with the Israeli authorities for peace. Hamas is just the opposite. T he involvement of Iran and H amas vendetta against Jews m akes resolution of the Israel/Palestine issue difficult at best. Israelis hope only for a long period of quiet. Peace is but a dr eam. Ef f or ts by the U.S. and Egypt to mediate will go nowhere b ecause extr emists and there are e xtremists on both sides see viol ence as the only solution to their problems. If Hamas would stop firing rockets at Israelis, Israel would stop bombing Gaza. If Hamas would recognize Israels existence, a peace plan already tentatively agreed to could be implemented. Sounds simple; but extremists dont compromise, theyd rather die than change and take many inno cent people with them. The rejection of a cease fire by Hamas further demonstrates their unwillingness to end the violence. We should all pray for a lasting peace for all who reside within the Middle East: Jews, Christians and Muslims alike. It is about time that peace r eigns. Fred Borakove Amelia Island C C h h i i l l d d d d e e a a t t h h s s The Florida Department of Children and Families is committed to reducing child deaths. This is an achievable goal, but we cant reach it alone. To make progress, we need the communitys help and we need it now DCF launched a new Child Fatality Prevention section on our MyFLFamilies.com website where the public can see summaries of each child death case reported due to abuse or neglect this year and whether or not the childs family had any pr evious involvement with DCF or our community-based car e partners. Under the leadership of our new Interim Secretary Mike Carroll, we are increasing transparency and using common sense, instinct and experience combined with r esear ch to determine how to better help childr en and their families. The site will educate the public about the actual c auses of child deaths in our state, w hich may surprise some people. The two highest causes of child deaths in our state are unsafe/co-sleeping, where a parent rolls over on top of their baby while sleeping together, and drowning. R esearch shows both of these types o f deaths are highly preventable by e nsuring babies sleep alone, in a crib on their backs and an increased public awareness that children should never be alone in and near water sources both large and small. In 75 percent of all child death cases in Florida, DCF had never previously been called regardingt he children. 89 per cent of childr en who d ied from abuse in Florida were under the age of three. The number of child deaths fr o m serious abuse or trauma has actually declined over the years. Many cases involved single mothers whose boyfriends had abused their chil-d ren. An early family investigation m ay have led the mother to leave h er abusive boyfriend and create a s afer envir o nment for her child. For some, a subsequent r e tur n to the past behavior of involvement with another abusive man cost the life of her child. DCF urges all single parents to carefully choose their partners. Mor e infor mation on war ning s igns is on our website. T he new Child Fatality Prevent ion site also includes infor m ation for par e nts about DCF s many cam paigns to pr event child deaths. W e believe that increasing awareness may change peoples behavior and save lives. For example, through this education, many people willk now how to take action if they see a child left alone in a hot car. T he site will also help local community leaders understand where resources for families are falling short and determine what strategies for pr evention can r e verse these trends. T his website is par t of many i mprovements that Secretary C ar r oll is making. He has worked his way up through DCF in various program ar eas, fr om entr y level to the top executive throughout the past 24 years. This gives him a unique lens through which he sees and understands the challenges of our workforce. Although DCF has investigators working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, we cannot stop every case of child abuse, just like law enfor ce ment cant stop every murder. But we are working to improve what we do. A new budget approved by Gov. Scott and state legislators to add mor e staf f r esour ces will help reduce the average caseload per investigator from 18 cases down to 10. Investigators may now look deeper into the root causes of abuse in each family to better prevent future maltreatment. This should also significantly reduce the challenge of turnover among investigators. By having local leaders and the community join us in these bold new initiatives, ever yone will be working to reduce child deaths and ensure a brighter future for our children locally and Floridas children statewide. Do you suspect that a child is being abused or neglected? State law requires you to report it to the Florida Abuse Hotline. Call 1-800-962-2873 to r eport suspected abuse or neglect.

David Abramowitz Northeast Florida Region Dir ector Florida Department of Childr en and Families Shoot, we like our fooddo wn South Its odd, I guess, that Garden & Gun maga zine would grace my reading table. I dont h ave a garden only three tomato vines that p r o vide appetizers for local deer and Im not into guns. Actually, the magazine is about Southern lifestyle at its best, and I like that. The one for August/September is the annual Southern food issue, and subscribers are inclined to forget aboutt he usual fare for now and, i nstead, enjoy generous h elpings from excellent writers whose words are guaranteed to activate salivar y glands. Ther es a piece on the grouper sandwich by Rick Bragg, one of my favoritew riters, a man so Southern h e thinks milk gravy is a v egetable. Roy Blount, a funny man who gr e w up in Geor gia, writes about the perfect biscuit, which, incidentally my mother made on a r egular basis. And she used an ingr edi e nt that has become a four-letter word in our m oder n imposition of healthiness: lard. W riter Brett Anderson interviews Alton Brown, the fast-talking showman of food TV and son of Alton Br o wn Sr ., who once pub lished the White County News in Cleveland, Ga. Br own arrived for the interview on a motorcycle, but underneath his motorcycle suit he was wearing seersucker. Even the r egular column called Good D og is written by a Southern chef, John C ur rence, who reminisces about his Great D ane named Calpurnia Cal for short. Cal is gone now, but she ate well for many years. All of this indulgence causes me to think back over the years I traveled four states Georgia, Florida and the Carolinas sometimes to fill in for editors who had left the fold. Like Cal the dog, I ate well. In Jacksonville Beach, Editor Kathy Bailey encouraged me to try barbecued shrimp at a favorite restaurant. Where I come from, the adjective barbecued does not exist. Barbecue is a noun and refers to the slow-cooked meat of a pig. But Ill have to admit: Barbecued shrimp aint bad. Around Wadesboro, N.C., a friendly debate ensued over coleslaw: whether r ed slaw or white slaw is better. I like them both. I used to work with a woman who would not eat seafood in a place more than 50 miles from the ocean, but Ive found good seafood in the mountains of Blue Ridge in Clayton, Ga., and Spr uce Pine, N.C. In Cheraw, S.C., I had lunch with a managing editor of Irish descent who ordered both mashed potatoes and Fr ench fries on the same plate, which I thought was taking his Irishness a bit too far. In Highlands, N.C., I was thankful for Rib Country, which, at that time, was about the only restaurant that stayed open late in the winter time. I could go on, but, unlike all-you-can-eat Southern restaurants, newspaper columns have their limits, and Ive r eached mine. So Ill leave on this note: There are a lot of good things about the South, and food and Garden & Gun are at the top of the list.

Well, heres a cool place to do it. Its at the annual Nassau C ounty Marine Corps Leagues Toys for Tots Christmas in J uly event to kick off the giving season here in Nassau County for the nationally acclaimed Toys for Tots Foundation conducted by the U.S. Marine C orps Reserve. The roots of the Toys for T ots program go back to 1947, when Maj. Bill Hendricks, a M arine Corps Reserve member, started the first collection of toys for needy children in the Los Angeles area. The first toy collected and distributed was a h omemade doll. In 1948, the Marine Corps R eserve adopted the program and set out to expand it to a n ational level, by which each Marine Corps Reserve Center throughout the country would conduct a campaign to collect and distribute toys in their a reas. In 1995, the Secretary of Defense approved the programa s an official mission of the U.S. Marine Corps and the Marine Corps Reserve. And in 1996, the R eserve expanded their area of coverage by designating selected local Marine Corps League Detachments and other nonprofit community organizations to collect and distribute toys where Marine Reserve units w ere not available. And the rest, as they say, is history. A history p raised by all and documented b y the happiness brought to disa dvantage kids and their famil ies all across the county. Allen Elefterian started the Toys for Tots program in 1999 as a member of the Marine Corps League Everett P. Pope Detachment 1017 here in Nassau County. Allen and his w ife, Carol, lead the program here along with the Marine C orps League commanded by P aul Kicker, MGySgt (ret.) and t he many Marine members. C arol Elefterian, who is in c harge of daily operations, said, The objective of Toys for Tots i s to help less fortunate children throughout our area experience the joy of Christmas, and to play an active role in the development and mentoring of a positive example in the positive development example to o ne of our most valuable resources our children. Wea lso would like to unite the Nassau County community a round what we do. Without the community support, in the giving of new toys, monetary donat ions and volunteering their time to the success of this great p rogram, so many children, right here in our own commun ity would literally go without Christmas. Last year we were able to bring one of the joys of Christmas to 840 children here. This year, we are hoping to expand that number to identify and include many more. All of the money raised and new toys donated stay right here in N assau County, and thats a wonderful blessing! S he added, There is a screening process involved for parents or parents/relatives to be eligible for the program. Between the starting date in early November and the distribution date in December near Christmas, applicants may apply through the Toys for Tots Program here in Nassau County. The dates and locations to sign up will be announced. Eligibility requirements include completion of an application, proof of Nassau County resid ency and being a custodial parent with documentation. P aul Kicker and Mark Brummer, Sgt. Maj. (ret.) play a huge part of the Toys for Tots program by leading the 68 members of Marine Corps League Detachment 1017 to institute educational informat ion to the public, establishing collection points for new toys a ll over the county, collecting and sorting of toys by age and gender, soliciting monetary donations for the Toys for Tots program to purchase new toys and continuing to maintain a positive image for the program and the U.S. Marine Corps League and Marine Reserve. So all you have to do is come by and eat at Sonnys BBQ restaurant at 2742 South Eighth St. on Friday from 5-9 p.m. or Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., meet Santa and enjoy an All You Can Eat Barbeque Buffetganza featuring ribs, chicken, pork, brisket and all the fixins f or $13.95 adults and kids (10 and under) $6.95.

SIN PERRY News-Leader It took a jury just 30 minutes t o find a Yulee man guilty of the sexual battery of a five-year-old girl at his trial last week in Nassau County Circuit Court. Justen Dean Alexander, 18, abused the girl as her babysitter from August 2012 until March 2013, when she told her mother about the assaults and the m other reported it to the school guidance counselor, who alerted police, said the Nassau County State Attorneys Office. Alexander, a member of Yulee Highs Class of 2015, according to the school yearbook, maintained his innocence throughout and testified at the t rial, said attorney Donna Thurson of the State Attorneys Office, who prosecuted the case with colleague Beverly Collins. He did testify and no, hes not apologetic and he denied it, said Thurson in a phone interview Thursd ay, adding that is not u nusual when such cases go to trial. Its typical. The victim, who is now 7, also testified along with three other witnesses, said Thurson. The defense called five witnesses, including Alexander and a n expert, a psychologist. The state has to prove three factors to bring a sexual battery charge, two being the victims age and the defendants age, and the third being that his penis either penetrated or had union with (touched of the victim, said Thurson. A lexander, currently in custody at the Nassau County Jail where he is listed on an inmate search as 6-feet-1 and 220 pounds, will be sentenced on Aug. 21. His crime is an automatic life felony but because he w as 17 a juvenile when the assaults occurred, he cannot r eceive life in prison under new sentencing mandates. If the judge sends him to prison, it will have to be a term less than life, said Thurson, but the law requires that he be deemed a sexual offender upon release and subject to the provisions of that probation for the r emainder of his life. Alexander was arrested on June 13, 2013, following an investigation by the Nassau County Sheriffs Office and was initially taken to the Department of Juvenile Justice facility in Jacksonville, said Thurson. The prosecutor said she t hen direct filed on Alexander, essentially making the case to take him to adult court based on the nature of the allegations, the facts of the case and his age. Alexander was subsequentl y arrested on a warrant on June 28, 2013 and booked into N assau County Jail, according to a sheriffs office booking report that remains heavily redacted due to his age at the time. His bond was set at $500,002. Alexanders trial July 14 began with jury selection at 8:30 a.m. three men, three women a nd one alternate were chosen and ended when they returned with a verdict at 6:04 p.m. after deliberating 30 minutes, said Thurson. Thomas Townsend of the Nassau County Public Defenders Office represented Alexander at his trial. firstname.lastname@example.org 10A W EDNESDAY J ULY 23, 2014 NEWS News-Leader CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK G r a c i a s Th a n k Y o u Taste the Latin American Traditional FoodLa Tierra Prometida (The Promised Land)Will Host a Dinner Featuring an Array of Hispanic dishesSaturday, July 26th,2014 5:00 8:00 pm416 Alachua Street Fernandina Beach, FL (the old Baptist Church)Ph.

H H e re in North Florida we have a few species of terns that nest on our beaches. The least terns are not the l east of them. These diminutive shorebirds are found in an umber of places in the U.S. but here in Florida they are o fficially threatened. And thats worth strong efforts to ensure their protection. The difficult thing about protecting them, though, is the locations they choose to lay their eggs and raise their c hicks right on the beach in some of our more populated s tretches. Take the area behind the Amelia Island Plantation and adjacent developments on the south part of Amelia Island. Homeowners and visitors alike enjoy this beach, the dunes, the swimm ing options, the nearness to their homes or vacation spots. T his beach area is in the county, not the city, and is not subject to the stricter beach protection and enforcement measures of Fernandina Beach. Dog leash laws are not regularly enforced p roviding a threat to the t ern colonies and beach c leanup measures a re not in place either, as demonstrated by the many s keletons of beach c abanas left behind on the beach overnight in the way of nesting sea turtles. But there is hope for this area. The South Amelia Island Stabilization Association( SAISSA), a nonprofit group of homeowners, have supported l arge-scale efforts over the years to add sand and stabilizers to prevent beach erosion in front of their homes. But now in recent years their efforts have also turned to dune and shorebird protection as well, in conjunction with the Florida Fish and Wildlife C ommission (FWC I recently had a chance to get a close-up look at these l east tern conservation e fforts. Last Friday I parked m y car at Burney Park and headed to the beach to watch the sun rise. And shor t ly thereafter, right on schedule, Patti Rendo picked me up on the projects ATV and we set off to survey the birds. T wo least tern colonies are i n this ar ea. Both colonies h ave been carefully roped off and posted with signs warning people to avoid disturbing them. It is only about three months, from May to July, in which any terns are nesting in this area, but still some con-f licts with people have arisen. S ome people ar e focused on d une protection and claim that the large roped-off beach ar e as encourage people to walk on the dunes instead. Others do not realize or care that their loose dogs disturb the colonies, causing aban-d onment of eggs and chicks, o r worse. And sadly some p eople resent the fact that their closest access to the beach has been inconve nienced. But happily most residents and visitors recognize the impor tance of the native species, and honor the terns right to nest here. In the expert company of P atti, I saw for myself how invisible the tern nests, eggs and chicks ar e and why their ar eas needed to be roped off. The adult terns themselves ar e visible enough, and espe cially when they are divebombing interlopers to keep them away from their off-s pring. But those eggs wow! without a knowledge of nest ing behavior and a good set of binoculars the eggs are virtually invisible in and amidst the crushed shell substrate exactly the same shades of br own and grey as the eggs themselves. And, even the mottled little fluf f ball chicks are difficult to spot and harder still to photograph from a distance. With Pattis skilled spotting and familiarity with the terns based on her twice-a-week sur veys to pr ovide data for the FWC, I saw some chicks and car efully stayed far enough away from the colony to avoid disturbing the adults. This year, Patti tells me, has not been a good year for the ter ns on this beach area, compared to years previous. At least one adult ter n has died and many more have been driven away. But still some of fspring are surviving. Hopefully in another few weeks these babies will fledge and fly away, to someday come back her e and star t the process all over again. Be respectful of these thr eatened bir ds and let them enjoy their last few weeks on their nesting beach. Don t let your dogs off their leashes. Dont walk close enough to the colonies to disturb the adults into dive-bombing you. Even if you are not directly beside the posted areas, if a ter n dive-bombs you, ther e may be chicks nearby that have wandered out of the posted area. Please watch where you step, and back away. After all, the birds have had their str etches of Florida beaches well before we moved here. With a bit of cooperation and suppor t they will continue to return year after year to delight us with their grace. Lets support the efforts of FWC and SAISSA to make sure this happens. Save the ter ns! Ever y good ter n deserves another! Pat Foster -T urley is a zoolo gist on Amelia Island.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK T ournament kingfish baitsAvid king mackerel fishermen have waited all year for both this week's 34th annual Greater Jacksonville Kingfish Tournament and the 32nd annual Fernandina Beach Kingfish and Fishing Rodeo next weekend. And the news all small boaters have been waiting for the kingfish have moved into the beaches, where a winning kingfish may well be hooked and landed. "It was slow way offshore this past weekend during the 2014 Northeast Florida Kingfish Shootout," Kenny Crawford said. "Our fishing team landed one kingfish that weighed just under 20 pounds. I believe with the clear water conditions, the big kings have moved into the beaches and inlets." Several king mackerel in the 30to 40-pound class were r eportedly caught along the beaches of Northeast Florida this past weekend with the r eturn of stable weather conditions and clean water. Dead baiting king mackerel is certainly the fastest way I know to hook up to a speedy king mackerel. Frozen Spanish sardines or cigar minnows make excellent dead baits for kingfishing and, when rigged properly, make for an easy day of king mackerel fishing. Dead kingfish baits can be purchased the day before your planned fishing trip and simply placed in a cooler with ice. No hightech live wells are needed and the worry of keeping kingfish baits alive is simply out the door. One of the more successful dead baits for catching king mackerel is the cutlass fish, also referred to as ribbonfish. Brimmed ribbonfish sell from $2-6 each, when they are available. The cheaper ones typically are net caught ribbonfish while the more expensive ones are hand caught. Reports are that ribbonfish sales are up this year and king mackerel fishermen are stocking up their freezers. So, you might consider making an order now for frozen ribbonfish and stocking them up in your freezer just in case the stocks of frozen ribbonfish are depleted. When a major kingfish run is in full swing, king mackerel boats may use from 15-25 ribbonfish per day, particularly when sharks and barracuda are on a major feed. Another option includes purchasing live baits at the marina or boat ramp. During the past few king mackerel seasons, purchasing live baits including blue runners and goggle eyes on land is becoming more and more popular, particularly when fishing in a high-dollar king mackerel tournament. Actually, a live oneto twopound blue runner or goggle eye is more expensive than purchasing ribbonfish. At $5 each, ribbonfish would cost $60 per dozen. Live blue runners or goggle eyes often cost from $100-150 per dozen. Obviously having on board a dozen or more live goggle eyes or blue runners and a fish bag loaded with brimmed ribbonfish is a guarantee that you and your fishing team will be able to run straight to your designated kingfish waters and start fishing without hunting live baits. For both upcoming kingfish tournaments, call Lee's Live Bait at (561) 624-0089. Many area tackle shops will be selling frozen ribbonfish OUTDOORSTerry Lacoss OUTDOORS2BWEDNESDAY, JULY23, 2014 SPORTS News-Leader SPECIAL PHOTOSMatt Farlow, left, and Chris Cathey landed a real "smoker" during the 2012 Northeast Florida Kingfish Shootout.
