SIN PERRY M ICHAEL PARNELL News-Leader A Fernandina Beach High School t eacher already in jail on charges of having sex with an underage student faces 34 additional charges involving a new victim in Hilliard. Daniel Wright, 32, was charged Friday with one count of transmission of material harmful to minors and 33 counts of possession of child pornography. T he additional charges stem from a forensic investigation of his cell phone by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement following his initial arrest, Assistant State Attorney Donna Thurson of the Nassau County office said Tuesday. Authorities were looking for evidence in the first case when they found a trove of explicit and suggestive photos of other females that were not the F ernandina Beach victim. There were a lot of photos with a number of different young women, said Thurson. Some are sexually explicit. Some are just suggestive. Were in the process of trying to identify the victims. The 33 child pornography counts involve one victim from Hilliard, where W right taught at the high school before transferring to FBHS, said Thurson. T he transmission of material charge relates to a sexually explicit photo sent by Wright, according to the cell phone records, Thurson said. Thurson said the investigation is ongoing and urged students and their parents to come forward with any information and call the sheriffs o ffice if they live in the county or the Fernandina police if they live in the city. Thurson said authorities both the Nassau County Sheriffs Office and the Fernandina Beach Police Department are working to identify the y oung women in the images and determine which were under 18 when the p hotos were taken. This is a good opportunity for all parents to talk to their children about not sending images through their cell phones or other devices. They dont go away, said Thurson. Wright remains in Nassau County Jail and is being held without bond. Bond was revoked for Wright last m onth after he apparently violated one of the conditions of his earlier release,i ncluding that he have no contact with t he Fernandina victim. W right, a media teacher and yearbook advisor at FBHS, was originally arrested June 16 after city police detectives said he c onfessed to an inappropriate relations hip with a 17-yearold senior during the past school year. The student has since turned 18 and graduated. The Nassau County Sheriffs Office declined Tuesday to release arrest reports related to the latest charges because the case is still under investig ation. According to a city police report $1.00 New victim, child porn charges for teacher There were a lot of photos with a number of different young women. Some are sexually explicit. Some are just suggestive.

Kelley vs. B oyle 2 Most Nassau County r esidents know Steve Kelley, but those that dont should know he has a long history of public ser vice. Kelley has ser ved our country in the U.S. Air Force, and currently serves as Nassau County Commissioner r epr esenting District 2. Kelley seeks election in the Aug. 26 Republican primary. His opponent is former commissioner Mike Boyle, and their election campaign a rematch fr om 2010 when Kelley prevailed. Those that do know Kelley know he is a veteran, dedicated husband, proud father, grandfather and a hard working small business owner accor d ing to his campaign announcement. Steve, and his wife, Bernice, have Kelley Property Appraiser watches from the sky MARY MAGUIRE N e ws-Leader Nassau County Property Appraiser Michael Hickox said cameras fly over every piece of property within the county in an effort to help determine its market values. Property values are up this year collectively by 4.5 percent, said Hickox. At a town hall meeting last week to explain how the office works and how he calculates the numbers, Hickox also mentioned a new par tnership with the sherif f s office to expand aerial surveillance. He said the photos are so good, They almost look like a drone took the photo. Did a drone take the photo? Do you r eally think we have a drone? said Hickox. As tempting as it is to say no, dr ones have hovered over Amelia Island. The Tourist Development Council used a drone a few months ago to take photographs of downtown Fer nandina Beach and Amelia Island. Hickox asked that questions about this program be brought to his office the next day and in a follow-up email, his spokesperson said the joint effort between the property appraiser and the sheriff is in development. Hickox said he relies on sky-high scrutiny to search for property upgrades, such as additions, decks, docks, driveways, garages, sheds and swimming pools. My field agents dont go inside so I dont know about the granite counter tops and the har dwood floors, said Hickox. Pulling permit information from the building department reveals interior and exterior upgrades, but sometimes people neglect to file paperwork. So, Hickox said a camera is launched into the air for a peek and a pictur e. At the moment, the state Depar tment of Revenue pr ovides property appraisers with aerial photographs at least once every three years. Accor ding to a depar tment spokesperson, the agency coordinates aerial photograph flights and procur ement with the Depar tment of Transportation (DOTtment of Envir onmental Protection (DEP and the water management districts to eliminate duplication of effort and to obtain the lowest possible cost. For the past two cycles Nassau County received their aerial photographs at no cost to them or to us because DOT also needed aerial pho tographs of the county and paid for them, said Depar tment of Revenue spokesperson Renee Waters. ere not sure how much DOT paid for the photos for Nassau County, but the average contracted rate last year was $67.67 per square mile. email@example.com R R e e a a l l e e s s t t a a t t e e r r e e c c o o v v e e r r y y , 3 3 A A A A p p p p e e a a l l s s p p r r o o c c e e s s s s The property appraiser is scheduled to mail Notices of Proposed Taxes later this month. This notice is also known as the TRIM notice and it stands for T ruth in Millage. If you disagree with your property value, exemption or classification, contact the Nassau County Property Appraisers Office. Petitions must be filed within 25 days after the notice is mailed. Property owners have the right to petition the value through the Value Adjustment Board (VAB), which includes two members of the county commission, one school board member and two citizen members. Last year, 150 petitions were filed with the VAB. Just five of those were heard by the board, the others settled beforehand. The board granted just one, according to the property appraiser s of fice. The successful appeal was submitted by Fernandina Little Theatre on Beech Street. KELLEY Continued on 3A

Thanks again to you all! You all will be greatly missed! Jack & Wanda Watson after his first arrest, Wrights involvement in a potential crime was broached in April when a p arent of two Fernandina Beach High School students told police of a rumor regarding Wright and a student. Both Wright and the student denied an inappropriate relationship when questioned by a detective, the report stated. On June 12, police received m ore information regarding the relationship from the accused teachers wife and her sister, who was also a teacher at Fernandina Beach High School. Wright reportedly admitted to his wife that he had become involved in a relationship with the student and acknowledged h aving sexual relations with her, but said the relationship occurred after the girls 18th birthday. The student confirmed the s exual relationship with Wright b egan in February and told p olice two sexual encounters occurred before her 18th birthday, while she was still a minor, the report said. Police said the girl also admitted the relationship continued beyond her grad uation from high school in May. According to the report, W right admitted having one sexual encounter while she was1 7 years old. He was then charged with a sex offense i nvolving a minor and was in custody at Nassau County Jail for two days until posting bond. W right has been a TV production and digital design t eacher at Fernandina Beach High School for the past two y ears, and formerly taught at Hilliard High School, according to the report.

As of Jan. 1, the taxable value of property in the county totaled $6.4 billion. That i s a 4.5 percent increase o ver last year s value of $6.2 b illion. The taxable value is based on market value, minus exemptions. It was a great year, said Pr operty Appraiser Michael Hickox. M arket values did even bett er increasing 5.3 percent to $ 9.7 billion, according to the property appraisers office. The figures are based on transactions in 2013 and include homesteaded and nonhomesteaded residential prop-e rties as well as commercial, i ndustrial and agricultural d evelopment and new con str u ction. This was the first time since 2007 that taxable values increased as the local housing market continues to bounce back from recession, accord-i ng to the property appraisers o f fice. Last years values were up 5.3 percent, but taxable values did not rise. In fact, the actual numb ers went down less than 0.15 percent with the d ecrease, said spokesperson J ustin Taylor. The latest increase is good news for homeowners who ar e seeing the market value of their homes on the rise. But dont blame me if your taxes go up, said Hickox. I d ont set the tax rate. The county commission d oes. And at the moment it is tentatively balancing next years budget with a property tax increase of about $2.50 per week for every $100,000 ofa ssessed value. There has not been an i ncrease for six years and comm issioners have indicated that t hey may be able to extend this streak by financing the $7.7 million cost of two significant capital impr ovement pr ojects launching this fall, including the sherif fs administration building and emergency disp atch operations. W hen the Save Our Homes a mendment went into ef f ect in 1994, taxes on homesteaded properties were capped at either 3 per c ent or the increase in the previous years Consumer Price Index (CPI whichever is less. The CPI increased by 1.5 percent last y ear. T he taxable increase for n on-homesteaded property is capped at 10 per c ent. In rising r eal estate mar kets, the values are outdated and that often fr ustrates people who are searching for current i nformation, said Hickox. T hats because the 2014 a ssessments are based on property sales between Jan. 2, 2013 and Jan. 1, 2014. So, I get calls fr om real estate agents all the time saying my buyer is ner vous because your values are too low said Hickox. No, were about two years behind. At a town hall meeting last week to discuss the process, the departments chief deputy K evin Lilly said, When were l ooking at 2014 property valu es, the 2013 sales are what wer e looking at. The pr eliminar y tax roll, which was certified by the Depar tment of Revenue in mid-July, is used by the count y, local municipalities and o ther taxing authorities such a s the school board and the St. Johns River Water Management District, to set budgets for fiscal 2014-15 and to decide their millage rates. mmaguir e@f bne w sleader com Hickox P P o o s s s s i i b b l l e e e e x x e e m m p p t t i i o o n n s s What property tax exemptions apply to me?

ANG ELA D A U GHTRY N ews-Leader W ith r ecognition as one of t he 50 fastest-growing compan ies in North Florida, Jason H ambrecht is glad he took a gamble on Construction Solutions. Specializing in solving con struction problems for commercial, institutional and highend buildings, the company wasn t doing as well as it could w hen Hambr echt bought it two y ears ago. They were in debt when I took over Hambr echt says. It was a big risk. I took on almost $200,000 in debt. It took a lot of hustle in those first six months, he says. It definitely t hickened my s kin. A former chef with The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, Hambr echt has a general c ontractors l icense and w orked in pr oper t y management before going to work for Constr uction Solutions. T wo unfortunate incidents helped jump-star t the compa ny after Hambrecht bought it. Since the economy died, a l ot of condo associations s topped maintaining their buildings, Hambrecht says. We got t hat business when the condos h ad to play catch-up. T he other incident had to do with the weather. Literally two weeks after I bought the company, we got two tropical storms, Hambr echt says. They do a lot of damage to buildings. I t hink thats the reason why w eve gr own. S ome local condo r e nova tions completed by Constr uction Solutions include pr ojects at Beach Walker, Piper Dunes, Captains Cour t, the V illas at Summer Beach, Sandpiper Condominiums and Amelia Tennis Villas. H ambrecht has decided to t ake the plunge into another new business with a high-end vape shop on South 14th Str eet. He said he plans to use vintage construction materials like old bricks and bar nboar d to cr eate a historic Amelia Island environment. The shop, to be named Speakeasy Vaporium, will offer many types of e-cigarette flavors along with WiFi, said Hambr echt. Originally from Long Island, N.Y ., Hambr echt came to Satellite Beach as a teenager with his family. Although Florida was a bit of a culture shock, the move south was a fun adjustment, he says. M arried with three children, H ambr echt says he and his w ife, a native of the ar e a, had originally planned on settling in Atlanta, but were not impressed with the city. On a whim, we just came her e, Hambr echt says. I don t think well ever leave her e. Its s uch a cool place. I like the s mall-town type of community a nd the people. It s got a lot of ever ything, and the downtown is awesome. Hambr echt, 39, is president and CEO of Constr uction Solutions, which has an of fice on Gateway Boulevard, Fernandina Beach, and in P onte Vedra. Jeffrey Sellers is v ice president and principal designer, and the company also comprises eight employees including pr ofessional engi neers and architects. The company does con str uction evaluation, damage assessments, emergency response to structural damage, project management, legal testimony and other specialized construction services. The company s market goes as far south as Orlando and into Geor gia, Hambr echt said. For mor e infor mation, contact Construction Solutions, 1417 Avery Road, Suite 100, Fernandina Beach, 261-8703 email@example.com Amelia Island is open to tourists. And tourists are discernibly open to Amelia I sland. About as open as the Atlantic Ocean is wide. (Now thats a lot of width.) Last year, Amelia Island attracted 500,000 tourists for the first time. This year has been even better, as tourists flock to Amelia Island like m oths to a bright light. All in all, the tourism i ndustry is doing very well, says Gil Langley, the head of the Amelia Island Tourist Development Council. Langley rattles off statistics with a free-flowing cadence ofa financial analyst. This past J une, tourism continued to set records here for the fourth m onth in a row. Occupancy among Amelia Island hotels and resorts was at 78 percent, substantially ahead of last year. The average daily rental was $226, up 8 percent from a year ago. T hese numbers are significantly better than the competition, according to Langley. In fact, only two regional mark ets Charleston, S.C., and F ort Walton Beach even c ome close to Amelia Islands p erformance. For instance, as compared to neighboring Jacksonville Beach, Amelia Island proved its tourism mettle. The Jacksonville Beach occupancy was 74 percent; its average d aily rental at $154. We just blew them out of t he water, Langley boasts in coastal parlance. The most impressive aspect of the high occupancy rates here is that the expansion of the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resor t added 155 rooms to the supply. But t he demand has grossly outweighed this greater supply. As evidence, The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia I sland had 90 percent o ccupancy for the first time ever in May. And for all the hotels and resorts here, revenues are 22 percent higher than a year ago. W ith the newfound demand, properties are able t o charge more for their rooms. As demand has gone up, finally weve had some pricing power that we havent had since the great recession, Langley says. Langley spends his days p romoting tourism. His office has embarked on advertising campaigns into rich markets such as Chicago, Charlotte, N .C., and Washington, D.C. H e hopes to draw tourists f rom prime areas like these to c omplement established feeder markets like New York/New Jersey, Atlanta and Jacksonville. Langley builds his case like an attorney, defending the law of tourism. The Tourist D evelopment Council spends m ore than $2 million a year p romoting Amelia Island. The TDCs funding comes solely from the bed tax assessed when a r oom is r e nted (and not from public funds). For every $1 invested in marketing, $177 in visitor related expenditures are generated. This entails shopping, dining, lodging, etc. T o say that Amelia Island has been discovered is like saying Columbus found America. Like with a Geico commercial, everybody knows that. But did you know that tourism is a $440 million industry here (its annual impact) and a $4 billion drive r of the states economy? Langley knows that. He a lso knows that tourism generates one-third of the sales tax revenues here and accounts for one-fourth of the labor market. The Omni is the top private-sector employer in Nassau County, while The Ritz i s third. In a welcomed relief, corp orate golf outings are returning also. The rounds of golf played on the islands courses are up 24 percent from last year, buoyed by the popular Golf Channel program Big Break Florida. The long-s tanding series was played and filmed on the Plantations courses. The final segment of the p rogram this spring had the l argest viewership ever. This o bviously brought tremend ous recognition for Amelia Island golf courses and the area. In simplest terms, the tourism industry is spic-andspan clean and delivers jobs and ancillary benefits for r esidents, with few side e ffects. It is a proven and cove ted prescription for prosperity as long as we remain open to it. Steve Nicklas is a financial advisor with a major U.S. firm who lives on Amelia Island.

Todays parents and child ren face challenges like never before. Drugs, gangs, b ullying and even social media have completely changed our ability to keep watch over our children and give them constant guidance. I firmly believe that the Chief Law Enforcement O fficer in a childs life is not the Sheriff or Chief of Police, but rather the mother, father or grandparent raising the child. I am convinced that the answer to lowering crime starts in the home, with parents teaching good family values and demanding accountab ility for poor decisions. As parents, its very important to remember that we are not just teaching discipline and responsibility, but are teaching the next generation of parents the importance of accountability and the value ofa ppropriate discipline. As a young boy growing up in Nassau County, I never worried about being in trouble with law enforcement, as I was more worried about being int rouble with my parents. P arenting is 24 hours a day a nd one of the most demanding jobs in the world, but it is also one of the most rewarding opportunities that life has to offer. I personally know how hard it is to Tough Love y our child. As a law enforcem ent officer for 37 years, I k now that going to visit your child in prison is even harder, and going to see them in a cemeter y is tr u ly unimagin able! Unfor tunately in todays society those may just be the only choices y ou have. Thats why i ts important for you to have every tool possible to be your childs personal cop. H ere are some helpful tips on how to stay involved in your childs life, hold them accountable for their actions, and also how to recognize potential problems they may face: Establish expectations and consequences for actions. K ids want and need fences in their lives and having clear-cut expectations is a great way to establish right from wrong. Be a good role model by showing understanding, respect for others, patience and rmness. Know who your childs friends are in person and online. Be suspicious (as bad as that sounds when parents are consistently suspicious oft heir childrens actions, they h ave a tendency to be more i nvolved and aware). Stop believing everything they tell you is the truth. Ask yourself this question ... did you ever lie to your parents? If the answer is yes, then it is only reasonable to assume t hat your kids are no different. Discipline your child and h old them accountable for their actions. Dont be afraid to do whats right and also make sur e you praise them for doing what s right as well. Be innovative in your approach to parenting. Think o utside the box on ways to involve your children in posit ive things and to make sure they understand the consequences of their actions and the importance of responsibility. Establish open lines of communication with your child ren. Your child cant be scared to talk to you even when they know they have done something wrong. Remember, if they dont feel they can talk to you they will find someone else to discuss their problems with who may not be the right role model for t hem. Encourage your child to do great things and praise them for their accomplishments. It cant be one way where they are only talked to about something they do wrong. Teach your child to solve and cope with problems. Problem solving is one of the most sought after abilities in employment and life. Volunteer at your childs s chool and be involved in their e xtracurricular activities. Plan family activities without technology-styled devices. Todays world is surrounded by texting, video and social media. Remember to be the r ole model you hope they will be for their kids oned ay. W hile I know that parenti ng today is dif f erent than parenting of yesterday, the one thing that has not changed is that today s par e nts ar e train ing their kids to be par ents of the future. 6 A CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK W EDNESDAY A UGUST 6, 2014 OPINION News-Leader VIEWPOINT/ N ASSAU C OUNTY S HERIFF B ILL L EEPER Sheriff: Its time to be a parent again A melia Walk Community Development DistrictNOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING TO CONSIDER THE ADOPTION OF THE FISCAL YEAR 2014/2015 BUDGETS;AND NOTICE OF REGULAR BOARD OF SUPERVISORSMEETING.The Board of Supervisors of the Amelia Walk Community Development District will hold a public hearing on August 26, 2014 at 2:30 pm at the Amelia Walk Amenity Center, 85287 Majestic Walk Circle.,F ernandina Beach, Florida for the purpose of hearing comments and objections on the adoption of Districts budgets for Fiscal Year 2014/2015.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 7A W EDNESDAY A UGUST 6, 2014 OPINION News-Leader VOICE OF THE PEOPLE S S e e e e k k i i n n g g a a l l i i v v i i n n g g w w a a g g e e S chool will start today, Aug. 6. In September 2013, according to the contract between the Nassau County School Board and the Nassau Educational Support Personnel Association, we (NESPA) began bargaining our contract for the 201314 school year. After negotiating collaboratively in good faith, NESPA d eclared an impasse in May. The NESPA bargaining team is working hard to gather facts to support our request to acquire a living wage, better working conditions and increased insurance benefits for our non-instructional support staff. Others in the district have already acquired an insurance benefit and a p ay increase. For the first time in some 30 years the two sides could n ot come to an agreement, thus we are now at impasse. A tentative date for the special magistrate to hear the case is scheduled on Friday, Aug. 8 at 9 a.m. at the main office of the Nassau County School District. This is a public heari ng. Over all, Nassau County School D istrict was fourth in the state, moving up from seventh last year. We are an A county providing the best for our students. Our district did not receive this acclamation without the a ssistance of our support staff who w ork diligently daily to make sure students have safe and well-maintained schools, transportation, hot meals, a clean environment in which to learn, staff who assure recordsa re correct at each school, extra assistance to a child that may need i t, help in directing those toward a high school diploma and monitoring a ttendance to assure that students are coming to school. The facts are in. Students who attend Nassau County Schools do get a quality education and thosew ho help to achieve this should be compensated with a living wage for t heir efforts in making this happen. The support staff asks for support as we move into this phase of negotia tions. We hope that the community as well as our constituents will recognize that we ar e valued assets to our Nassau County Schools. W e ask f or full support in recognizing that t hings don t just happen. W e ar e h ere working the jobs of the daily functions of the school system, dedicated to making every day the best day for all students that seek education in Nassau County Schools. Marian P ONeal, Pr esident Nassau Educational S upport Personnel Association C C i i t t y y g g o o l l f f c c o o u u r r s s e e The Executive Board of the Fernandina Beach Mens Golf Association strongly recommends that the Fer nandina Beach City Commission make the best business decision for the city of Fer nandina Beach and accept C asper Golf s of fer of $50,000 in exchange for a contract extension of five years duration. The course is in the best overall playing condition right now than ever in the past 10 years. The new Champion Ber muda greens installed on the South course are absolutely amazing in their put-t ing trueness and speed compared t o either of the other two 9-hole c ourses. Your acceptance of Casper Golfs offer and the renovation of the West course greens will provide you with the best 18-hole course greens in the area and solve one of the major drawbacks to the courses attraction that have plagued it for years. The city loses absolutely nothing in protection of its contractual rights by this decision. After reviewing all of the facts, this decision is a no-brainer and is in the best interests of the city. John Schroeder, President Lee Murray, Vice President Bruce Smyk, Treasurer John Rudd, Secretary Bill McKeown, Member at Lar ge B B e e a a c c h h d d e e b b r r i i s s s s e e n n s s a a t t i i o o n n a a l l i i s s m m I have just received my copy of the July 23 News-Leader I was amazed at the sensationalism exhibited in the prominent photo spr ead and half-tr uth reporting on your front page regarding the Amelia Island beach. I have been the owner of a beachfr ont pr oper ty on Amelia Island for 35 years. Each summer when my family and grandchildr en visit, we put up sunshade tents on the beach to ease the intense sun. It adds greatly to the enjoyment of the beach. Usually over a 2-3 week period the frames to these tents are left up overnight with the canopies being taken away W e also leave beach chairs there, as removing these and the tent frames is quite a task. At the end of the vacation period the frames are removed, as is everything else we have taken to the beach. This same thing is done by hundreds of people who visit the Amelia Island beach each summer. Perhaps some do not adher e strictly to this r emoval practice, but it seems most do. In the past year ther e appears to be a gr oup of do-gooders on Amelia Island Plantation who seem to think they live at a national seashore where nothing should disturb the pristine natural state of the beach. They have accosted people on the beach advising them of r emoval rules (which do not exist a nd have left the little brochure ( which you show in one of your pictures) attached to personal items (beach chairs, etc. left on the beach. I am amazed that you would publ ish obviously staged photos in your paper as happenstance. The tent f rame beside the sea turtle nest with t he least tern nesting area in the b ackground appears to be arranged, as is the picture of the leave footprints only brochure which you say was discarded on the beach. It is indeed coincidental how the photographer or reporter just happened to come acr oss it after it was dis c arded. I t is a gr oss misr epr esentation f or you to state that resort and condo visitors junk their stuff. It is simply left there overnight until used again the next day. The July 4 period is the busiest time of year for beachgoers. Obviously your lead pictur e was taken during this period, and was taken early in the morning befor e beach goers r etur ned. T o r e por t that these visitors junked their stuff is a gross misrepresentation. The comment that the beach is trashy and that the items pose a thr eat to sea tur tles and other marine life is laughable and purely an attempt to further sensationalize the issue. Most sea tur tle nesting i s done by July and I suspect that should a late blooming mother sea turtle encounter a tent frame she will simply move around it. As for the least terns, no one would put a tent near these devils. The harass ment would be too great! The beach at Amelia Island is by far the lar gest generator of tourist d ollars for the island. Let s not con fuse use and abuse, and set r u les that take away from the beach experience for mostly well meaning visitors. Please go back to your factual reporting. That which we have relied upon for lo these many years. With regard to county costs, there will always be clean-up costs associated with a public recreational facility. That is the bad which comes with the tourism good. However, with regard to the tent frames, ther e ar e scrap metal sal vagers who cr uise the beach and appear to be quite proficient at collecting the few damaged and discarded tent frames. Willis Dobbs Atlanta, Ga. D D i i n n i i n n g g w w i i t t h h d d o o g g s s On the issue of allowing dogs in outside dining areas of restaurants, the two sides will never fully understand each other but hopefully we can respect one anothers views. In general, people who want to take their dogs out to dinner with them regard their dogs as part of the family and those dogs will be clean and pest-fr ee. Just like any family member, though, they shouldnt be included unless they are wellbehaved and will not prevent other diners from enjoying their meals. Dog lovers should remember that this is an experiment, and if your dog will bark at other people or dogs it should be left at home. Lisa Reese Amelia Island F F r r e e e e c c r r u u i i s s e e s s My neighbor and I received a mailer for a car lot that was going to set up at River City on the north side of Jacksonville. W e supposedly won a 3-day, 2-night cruise to the Bahamas. Well, we did everything we were supposed to do. We were supposed to send in $59 per person for port taxes. Well, we mailed in our port taxes in April. Well, in May they claim they didn t r eceive our money. I sent in a postal money or der, and my neighbor sent in a personal check. We called every week after the first call in May. After 11 weeks they admitted they had my money or der but said they did nt receive my neighbors check. She then sent in another check but t his time she sent it in certified w here she would have proof they r eceived it. That was on June 11. A person signed for it, she received the card back. They still said they did not receive her check. We contacted the car lot and they gave us an umber to call and we spoke to a man there. He said they should have n ot done that and he put us in cont act with a woman and she was supp osed to get to the bottom of it. Well, after speaking to her a man called us from the cruise line and left a message stating he wanted to book our cruise leaving us to believe that everything was set. Well, when we called back it wasn t. He told me t hat they had lost my neighbors c heck, that was on July 22. W ent to c heck the mail at the post office and her check was there. Like I said they outright refused us our cruises. I hope everyone that reads this thinks twice about booking a cruise.W e will never go on a cr uise because the people ar e very rude and act like we dont matter. I want all the car lots that have t hese cer t ificates to know that they are not being honored. I want everyone who goes to these car sales to know what might happen if they try and use these certificates after the car lot tells them they have won one. We have received another one after we sent in our money for the cruise in question. I have called the car lota nd complained about this; we will see what will happen. The new one has another cruise line name on it but its the same people as we have already called them and the same people we spoke to for the one in question answered the phone. So if you win one just tell the car lot it is not wor th the paper its written o n. Charlene Har r ison Yulee N N a a s s s s a a u u C C o o u u n n t t y y s s f f i i n n e e s s t t On July 28 a tragic accident occurred out of the Flying A Ranch in Yulee. Charlie Yeagle, a lifetime pilot, well known in the aviation community, lost his life as he took off from the Flying A Ranch for the last time. Charlie had been a pilot in Vietnam, later became a corporate pilot for St. Regis paper company and had r ecently r etired from Continental Airlines as a 737 captain. Charlie had owned this aircraft for over 35 years. He loved this airplane and had always worked to keep it in meticulous condition. Charlie was a bigger than life fig ure. He was outgoing, funny, always had a joke for you and could always laugh at himself as well. Our neigh bor, husband and a friend to the aviation world was lost that morning. Charlie had helped me learn to fly and that gave me a career in aviation. To that I say thank you CharlieY eagle. Our family would like to thank all the fine men and women of Nassau County for their ef forts that day. They were all professional, kind and sympathetic to the tragedy at hand. They all worked together in a professional manner. They never released the name until the family was notified and did a gr eat job to keep that information from the media. W e sometimes for get about these pr ofessional people until we need them. I know if Charlie could, he would say thank you to all that wer e ther e that day So to that, we say thank you Nassau County. Would also like to thank Byron Pikula as he made the 911 call and took his boat out immediately to assist Charlie. Chaplain Noel Roberts was on the scene to assist the family and did a wonderful job with a very difficult situation. W e loved you, and we will miss you Charlie, thank you for everything you did for our family. Fr eddy Ar nett Yulee S S o o s s u u e e m m e e It appears that the Republican Par ty is on course to sue the pr esi dent of the United States for failure to enforce his own Affordable Care A ct, or Obamacare. W e now know the real reason w hy Southern President Jefferson Davis was given a prison sentence following the Civil War. He broke away from the Republican government in Washington and promisedt o establish an independent Southern Confederacy. H e failed to keep his promise. T herefore, he deserved a prison sent ence for failure to secede. Tea, anyone? Phil Mayberry Fernandina Beach G G r r e e a a t t S S o o u u t t h h e e r r n n T T a a i i l l g g a a t t e e H ow come all the fees ($7,000 t hat should be collected fr om The G reat Southern Tailgate are waived every year? Is it because the organizer is the police chiefs wife? They are also making the water slide pack up to make room for the event. The water slide brings in much neededr evenue to the parks and recreation department potentially in excess of $10,000 a year If made to move the o wner may not r e tur n. Shame on the city manager and the commissioners for allowing this all to happen! We as a city should be trying to make as much money as possible, not thr owing it away Steve Joseph Fernandina Beach C C o o u u n n t t y y s s e e r r v v i i c c e e s s Nassau County used to be a place to live and still is except for some serious issues. Does Nassau County have anyone that manages the r oads and rights of way and maintains our fall ditches? Some roads on the West Side have over gr owth. Y ou have to d rive down the middle of the r oad just to avoid damage to your vehicle and now that school is going to start, the school buses, in my opinion, will be taking changes. Your childrens lives in hand. Does the county pay someone to run the county just to justify a paycheck? They are wooden bridges that I know have not been inspected in 20 years yet still you pay a salary for an individual to ride up and down roads and do absolutely nothing (but report to those individuals who are in char ge of daily duties on what a fine job they ar e doing and their bosses believe that which is totally untrue. It is hurricane season. Is Nassau County prepared? No, it is not. I personally took my time to check the Hilliard yard and found out unless it has been or der ed maybe four loads of asphalt milling and if you ar e lucky thr ee or four of dir t and a couple loads of lime rock and Nassau County is ready? I dont think so. What the commission needs to do is start at the very top of the ladder and trim that tree of waste. Do some serious r estr ucturing in all of their offices. When you have managers on top of managers and assis tant managers ther e are some serious issues. Citizens should call those individuals backscratchers. Nassau County better get rid of riff raff and get some real help. Get rid of the waste in county of fices. W e the citizens ar e not get ting what we pay for. When you have mor e managers or chiefs than Indians, ther e has to be a very serious problem. Fact not fiction. James White Callahan B B u u r r g g e e r r K K i i n n g g s s i i g g n n It is truly our loss, the former owners of Bur ger King, the Armstrongs, have stepped into retirement. You are surely missed and many of the smiling employees. The sign lifted me up on a r ough day. Kept me in touch with the happenings of our county events. W e tr uly miss Fether in the lobby with her smile. She was dedicated to having the lobby shine at all times. To all of you that made our Burger King one of a kind, it will never be the same. Marie Lee Fernandina Beach Tell Momma not to worry about me T his summer marks the 100th annivers ar y of the beginning of W orld W ar I. The U .S. counted 116,516 war dead. But the sac rificed life of one soldier lives on through his letters home. Pvt. Maudie A. Miller wrote a lot of letters from his part of the war, the First World War. His father, Eli Miller, counted 45 in all, plus one postcard. Thec ard announced only that h e had ar rived safely over s eas. Our regiment is lucky so far he wr o te in a letter dated Sunday, Oct. 13, 1918. We have lost but very few men. ... Maudie was writing f rom somewhere in F rance, wher e he was a ssigned to Battery C, 320th Field Artillery of the U.S. Ar m y He was updat ing his family on what he had seen: The Allies sure have been doing some good work the last few weeks, he said in his letter Guess you h ave seen in the paper what they have done, a nd still have the Germans on the run. ... B ut he longed to be home in Lula, Ga., helping his family at harvest time: Guess you all are busy gathering your crops.W ould like to be there to help you all. Hope you will make a good crop. Maudies time in the Army began April 17, 1918, when he r epor ted to Camp Gordon, Ga. He stayed there 13 days and then transfer r ed to Camp Mills, N.Y A few days later, he shipped overseas to prepare for what became known as The Great War, because no one could imagine a war being greater. The private r eceived training on a machine gun and reported for duty near the front lines in France. Maudie assured his family time and again that he was just fine. T ell Momma not to worry about me, he wrote in the Oct. 13 letter. I will not hurt myself unless I do accidentally I am not in ver y much danger I am so far back of the front lines. He also assured everyone he had kept the faith. I have read my Testament through twice since I have been over here, he said. I haven t been ver y uneasy yet I feel like the Lord will protect me if it is his will. On Nov. 11, 1918 at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month hostilities on the Western Front ceased. But Maudie Miller never got the news. He was severely wounded and died 22 days before Armistice Day, the day the war ended. About two years and nine months after he died, the remains of Maudie Miller, my late father-in-laws oldest brother, arrived home for burial. His New Testament was among his belongings. Maudie had marked one verse in the little book. It was the 13th verse of the 15th chapter of St. John. It was the same verse the Rev P .M. W ebb r ead at Maudie s funeral on July 29, 1921: Gr eater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

I had no plans to write another Okefenokee story so s oon after my last one a f ew weeks ago, but well, things happen. After my previous column some gal friends who read it a nd had never visited the swamp convinced me to take them there. At first I was hesitant. For one thing, the weather was predicted to be blazing hot, and these gals were not e arly risers so avoiding the heat of midday was not an option. And besides, I had just been there and this revisit seemed too soon for me. But a nyway, long story short, one h ot summer day I filled my car with friends and off to Folkston, Ga., we went. Sure enough it was hot but there were no problems at first. We stopped by the visitors center in the Okefenokee N ational Wildlife Refuge to see their orientation movie in f ull air-conditioned splendor, then got back in my air-conditioned car for a slow drive around the five-mile loop road. And luck was with us, at least as far as bugs go. No bugs beat against the windshield and none attacked us on our brief forays out of the car to l ook at things more closely. Marie, a new Florida resident, was anxious to see an alligator. The water levels were high after all our recent rainstorms and I knew this meant that the gators would be spread out all over the place and not necessarily visib le in the ponds and ditches near the road. But we were lucky here too. In a newly burned area right beside the road, a maybe six-foot-long g ator was laying on the canal b ank. Great photo op for Marie. And her smiles were a relief for me. Mission accomp lished. By the time our group got to the parking area for the 3/4mile boardwalk everyone was still full of energy and the thermometer in my car said it was only 81 degrees, not so hot after all. No heat, few bugs, everyone decided to yes, go o n the walk. Since it was midday there was not much life stirring along the boardwalk, no raccoons, no birds, mostly silence. The bay magnolias and other wildflowers were in bloom, but the trees had been destroyed from the last big swamp fire and, apart from a f ew man-made shelters, there was no shade. It was all very beautiful and serene but it was getting hotter and hotter byt he minute. We made it to the observation tower, took a quick look and by then we were more t han ready to wrap up our trip and get back into the air-conditioned car. We set a good pace heading back in the blazing sun. But then, Look, a big gator! Sure enough a large gator was slowly cruising near the boardwalk. We stopped to look. And then, Look here c omes another one! In all my years going to the Okefenokee and visiting alligator habitat all over Florida, Ive never seen what we saw next. The second gator swam right up to the first one, slid over its body and surfaced facing it. Two gators, side by side. Then a view of a tail, then a splash, and again two alligator heads facing one another. We watched until one gator swam offi nto the brush and the other one continued leisurely down the channel. All in all it was less than five minutes that we w atched the two gators in tactile contact with one another. Well, from the surface we could only guess at what they were doing, but two adult gators touching one another, what do you think? Later on the Internet I learned that alligator mating begins with c ourtship behaviors including head facing like we witnessed and might be as brief as the five minutes that we saw, sometimes longer. To know for sure if they were mating or just courting we would have to watch them underwater like my old university friend K ent Vliet did for his PhD but really, none of us were inspired to jump in and check. Its lucky this all took place i n five minutes or less. By now the heat was overwhelming and one of our party nearly succumbed to heat stroke b efore we made it to the next shade structure for a long cool down period, then eventually to two more shelters and then to our car. We were all overheated and dehydrated and just from a 1 1/2-mile walk. It could have been worse if the bugs were biting like they usua lly are in the summer. We gals ended our day with an all-you-can-eat buffet at the Okefenokee Swamp Restaurant in Folkston, now fully rejuvenated by the air conditioning. It was great seeing courting alligators, yes, but my advice to one and all: D ont plan your visit in the heat of a summer midday! Pat Foster-Turley is a zoologist on Amelia Island.

W ASHINGTON, D.C. With 10 days left for public comment, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.ging local officials to speak out against expanded drilling activity closer to Floridas Atlantic coast. It was recently announced that the O bama administration could allow oil drillers to conduct seismic testing offp arts of Floridas east coast. The Interior Department has said it will take public comments on the issue until Aug. 15. Nelson submitted his own comm ents to the interior secretary to make his opposition known. Im writing to express my strong o pposition to oil and gas drilling and seismic testing off the Atlantic Coast of Florida, Nelson said in a letter sent last week to Interior S ecretary Sally Jewell. Such drilling is incompatible with Floridas coastal economy, space launches, military bases and marine ecosystems, N elson wrote. As your department begins the process for developing the F ive Year Oil and Gas Leasing Prog ram for 2017-2022, I urge you to maintain the longstanding protections against offshore drilling in the waters off the Floridas Atlantic coastline. ... Over four years have passed since the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster, which took the lives of 11 rig w orkers and spilled more than 4.9 million barrels of oil into the Gulf ofM exico. Floridians are well aware of what an oil spill in the region could do, from spoiling beaches that attract tourists from all over the world to damaging productive fisheries and c oastal communities. For instance, a recent report from Visit Jacksonville n oted that tourism is responsible for m ore than $1.5 billion in visitor spending to the area in 2013. Our tourism economy relies on clean beaches and healthy coastal ecosystems, and the Interior Department should carefully coordinate on the impacts of oil and gas development with the resource s cientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. N elson added, Oil and gas production would disrupt ongoing national security and research mission at coastal military installations.

Tom Hughes & Stacy Lusk,Owners Nelson opposes drilling off Florida N elson When voters elect trial court judges, they choose the people to p reside over business disputes and family matters in civil court as w ell as criminal trials. But frequently voters make these important decisions with only limited knowledge about candidates, who are cons trained by law in what they can say i n campaigns. W ith 67 trial court races on the ballot across the state this year, voters can learn more about the county and circuit judge candidates in those races through The Florida Bar Judicial Candidate V oluntary SelfDisclosure Statement program. I nformation about candidates b ackgrounds and personal statem ents can be found on The Florida Bar website at www.floridabar.org/ judicialcandidates. Contested trial court races will be on the Aug. 26 primar y ballot. In races with thr ee or more candidates and wher e one candidate does not get a majority, the two top vote getters will have a runoff in the Nov. 4 general election. The form asks trial court judicial candidates about their education, career and civic involvement; areas where they are certified; and exper ience in trials, mediations, arbitrat ions or administrative proceedings. O ther questions cover their pro bono and public service work and disciplinar y history, if any, as a lawyer or judge. Candidates are also asked about their health and military service.I ncluded in the final form is an essay q uestion that asks candidates: In 1 00 words or less, without discussing any particular issue which may come before you if you become a judge, explain why you believe you would be a good judge. As with other judicial candidate communications, voluntary self-disclosure statements are governed by C anon 7 of the Code of Judicial C onduct, which bars candidates from m aking statements that appear to commit them on legal issues likely to come befor e them in court. Before posting their statements with The Florida Bar, candidates had to attest to the accuracy of the infor-m ation they provided. To be posted, s tatements had to be r eceived by J une 9. In total, 108 out of 156 candidates responded to the voluntary questionnaire. In the 50 circuit court r aces, 81 candidates responded, for a 70 percent participation rate. In t he 17 county court races, 27 candidates responded, for a 66 percent participation rate. The forms are for candidates only s eeking county and circuit judges hips. They are not for District Court o f Appeal judges in merit retention elections. In August, the Bar will poll instate members regarding judges in merit retention elections. The results will be published in early September.

TAMPA In recognition of Distracted Driving Awareness Month, AAA is warning drivers to avoid any activities that divert attention from the primary drivi ng task. Any distractions could endanger a driver, passengers o r others sharing the road, such as bicyclists or pedestrians. While weve made substantial progress in the past few years by raising awareness about risky driving behaviors, the simple fact is that distraction continues to be a significant contributing factor to deaths and i njuries on our roadways, said AAA Traffic Safety manager John Pecchio. We all should take personal responsibility for focusing on driving rather than on dangerous distractions. Distractions are responsible for vehicle crashes leading to more than 3,000 deaths and 3 87,000 injuries in 2011, according to the most recent data provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA Driving distractions come in all forms. A few examples are: Texting Using a handheld or handsf ree cell phone Conversing with passengersE ating/drinking Using a navigation system (GPS Personal grooming The use of electronic devices are among the most well-known a nd common sources of distraction for drivers. Text mess aging behind the wheel is one of the riskiest things a driver can do as it involves manual, visual and mental distraction simultaneously. Any kind of cell phone use can be risky. There isa public misperception that using a hands-free cell phone reduces risk but research states o therwise. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety completed groundbreaking research last year finding that mental distraction by itself dangerously affects drivers behind the wheel, said Pecchio. The research showed that handsf ree features, increasingly common in new vehicles, are actually among the most mentally distracting. Just because a drivers eyes are on the road and hands are on the wheel does not mean that they are safely focusing on driving. Here are AAAs top 10 tips to a void distractions while driving 10. Fully focus on driving a nd do not let anything divert your attention. Actively scan the road, use your mirrors and watch out for pedestrians and cyclists. 9. Store loose gear, possess ions and other distractions that could roll around in the car, so y ou do not feel tempted to reach for them on the floor or the seat. 8. Make adjustments before your drive. Address vehicle systems like your GPS, seats, mirrors, climate controls and sound systems before hitting the road. Decide on your route and check traffic conditions ahead of time. 7 Finish dressing and personal grooming at home before you get on the road. 6. Snack smart. If possible, eat meals or snacks before or after your trip, not while driving. On the road, avoid messy foods that can be difficult to manage. 5. Secure children and pets b efore getting underway. If they need your attention, pull off the road safely to care for them. Reaching into the backseat can cause you to lose control of the vehicle. 4. Dont use cell phones while driving handheld or hands-free except in absolute e mergencies. Never use text messaging, email functions,v ideo games or the Internet with a wireless device, including those built into the vehicle, while driving. 3. If you have passengers, e nlist their help so you can focus safely on driving. 2. If another activity demands your attention, instead of trying to attempt it while driving, pull off the road and stop your vehicle in a safe place. To avoid temptation, power down or stow devices before h eading out. 1. As a general rule, if you cannot devote your full attention to driving because of some other activity, its a distraction. T ake care of it before or after your trip, not while behind the wheel. Established by AAA in 1947, the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety is a 501(c3 profit, publicly-supported charitable educational and research organization. D edicated to saving lives and reducing injuries on our roads, the Foundations mission is to prevent crashes and save lives through research and educat ion about traffic safety. The foundation has funded over 200 research projects designed to discover the causes of traffic crashes, prevent them, and minimize injuries when they do occur. Visit www.aaafoundation.org for more information on this a nd other research. 10A W EDNESDAY A UGUST 6, 2014 NEWS News-Leader CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Paying attention is key to safe driving Pets in the car can be dangerous distractions When we hear the term dist racted driving, most of us think of the obvious culprits eating, putting on makeup, talking on the phone, texting or rummaging for a dropped object on the car floor. However, few of us consider the driving distraction leaving our furry friends unsecured can cause. This fact is underscored by a Kurgo and AAA survey of peop le who frequently drive with t heir pets. The survey found t hat while 64 percent of drivers admitted to engaging in a potentially distracting pet-related activity, and 29 percent admitted to actually being distracted by their pets, a full 84 percent allowed their pets to ride unres trained. I ts easy to see how an unres trained pet could be distracting. An anxious dog may cry uncontrollably, pace or seek comfor t fr o m its owner A dog or cat that becomes suddenly f rightened might jump or run around unpredictably. A curious dog might burst into the front seat to get a better view of something interesting he spotted from the back window. A small dog or cat might try to burrow under your seat, or worse, into your lap. In the survey, drivers admitted to doing everything from p etting their dogs, carrying t hem on their laps, to playing w ith them and even giving them t reats while driving. And 3 percent of drivers admitted to taking photos of their dogs as they drove. Restraining pets in vehicles isnt just about pets causing distracted driving. Its about what c an happen during an accident. U nrestrained pets can be serio usly injured or killed if they are thrown from a vehicle. Pets carried on drivers laps can be cr ushed by the impact of an airbag. Frightened pets have b een known to escape vehicles and run away in shock after accidents. And unsecured pets can actually put everyone in the car in danger; during an accident, a 60-pound dog can suddenly become the equivalent of a 2,700-pound projectile. Keeping your pet and human passengers safe and s ecure is as easy as using the r ight safety restraint. From pet s eat belts or pet car seats, to c rates or front seat pet barriers, there is an option out there that will suit your pet and your vehicle. Taking the time to find it may save you the hassle and danger of driving distracted. It m ay make trips with your pets m ore fun and worry-free. And it j ust may save the life your pet or your own.

Florida beachgoers should r emember to use sunscr een, stay hydrated, practice water safety, prevent injury and be respectful and aware of the animals and organisms that call our coast home. Sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 is recommended. When going outside, apply a liberal amount of sunscr een to all exposed skin, even on cloudy days. Remember to r eapply sun screen to your skin when outdoors for mor e than two hours, and after swimming, sweating or toweling off. Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water when outdoors, especially in the summer heat. Pack bottled water when vis iting the beach. Be mindful of the signs of dehydration: Dr y mouth, dizziness, lack of sweating, dry skin, low blood pressure, rapid heartbeat, and fatigue. Pay attention to weather and water conditions such as rip cur r entS. Designate a Water W atcher to super vise children playing in and around the water. Learn CPR. Learning CPR empowers you to make a differ ence and save a life. Floridas beaches are known for soft white sand; how ever, rocks and shells are a natural par t of the beach envir onment. Watch where you step and avoid sharp rocks and shells. Wear sandals or water shoes to pr otect your feet on r ocky or shelly surfaces. Water and wounds do not mix. Do not enter the water if you have fr esh cuts or scrapes. It is important for those who are immune-compromised to wear pr oper foot pr otection to prevent cuts and injury caused by r ocks and shells on the beach. Be respectful of our wildlife. Many animals call Floridas beaches and coast home. Many animals, such as sea turtles, rely on responsible human behaviors to survive. It is ever yone s r esponsibil ity to share the beach with these creatures and be mindful of their home.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Re el Quick tops NSFA kingfish field"We started king fishing at the Nassau Bottom, then navigated to Haddock's Hideaway," Jerry Carter said. "We originally planned on fishing at the popular Elton Bottom but rough seas had kept our kingfish team in closer to land. Later in the morning the seas and winds began to calm down allowing our Reel Quick fishing team to run further offshore to the Elton Bottom fishing grounds." T eam Jacksonville's Reel Quick won this year's Ancient City Kingfish Classic by weighing in a 48-pound kingfish and 41-pounder for a winning aggregate weight of 91 pounds. Their second win came during the 2014 King Buster Tournament while weighing in a 43-pound king mackerel. "Once we arrived at the famed Elton Bottom, we rigged live blue runners to our Cannon downriggers and slow trolled them at water depths of 40 and 70 feet," Carter said. "Minutes later, a big king took our deep downrigger blue runner and we were soon chasing a massive kingfish. "After two reel-burning r uns, the big king simply r olled over on the surface allowing my son Jeremy Carter to gaff it right in the upper back. "We had no idea that our kingfish would win the tournament but obviously are glad it turned out to be the tournament winner." T eam Reel Quick took home the first-place prize, which was a nice check for more than $6,700. Some 60 kingfish teams competed in the kingfish portion of this year's 32nd annual Fernandina Beach Kingfish T ournament and Rodeo. A second Jacksonville kingfish team, including Ray McClain, Brook McClain, Cook McClain and Les Beale, took second place in the largest kingfish category with a 34.82-pound king mackerel. "We king fished off of the beaches at the famed Captain's House," Brook McClain said. "The water was crystal clear and you could see a lot of baitfish in the water. We caught our second-place king trolling a ribbonfish deep with our Cannon downrigger first thing in the morning." Lee Way took second place with a 33.32-pound kingfish, Ryan Rodeffer was third with a 27.62-pound kingfish, W illiam Taylor was fifth with a 25.2-pound kingfish, Scott Frye was sixth with a 22.88pound kingfish, Geoffrey Stam was seventh with a 21.16-pound kingfish, Jeffrey Dunbar was eighth with a 21.12-pound kingfish, Brian Kolshak was ninth with a 20.94-pound kingfish and Dennis Hollingsworth was 10th with a 20.92-pound kingfish. Te r esa Owens took firstplace lady angler honors with a 21.38-pound kingfish. Blake Cantrell took first place in the junior angler division with a 20.61-pound kingfish and Kevin Faulk took first in the single engine category with a 25.18-pound kingfish. Dennis Hollingsworth took top honors in the inaugural Northeast Florida Kingfish Challenge. There were also several winners in the rodeo portion of the tournament. Largest re dfish was weighed in by Jeff Crumpton at 5.62 pounds. T ony Reagon captured top honors in the flounder category with a 6.48-pound flounder. Andy Gowen weighed in a 3.26-pound sea trout for top honors. Dave Edwards claimed first-place sheepshead at 4.9 pounds. R yan Rodeffer took top honors in the wahoo category with a 18.82-pound wahoo and Spencer Fox won the redfish spot competition with seven spots. In the kayak competition, Craig Von Brocklin was the overall winner with 74 inches. R yan Conner was a close second with 64.9 inches. Kayak fishermen actually caught, measured, photographed and released their catches, which could include up to one sea trout, one redfish and one flounder. V on Brocklin also won top honors for redfish with a 35inch redfish. James Miller won top honors for sea trout with a 24.2inch sea trout and Conner took top honors in the flounder category with a 21.6-inch flounder. The Southern Kingfish Association tournament trailer was also on hand with Chief Operating Officer Ben W ells and VIP Jeff Berndt. Ben Wells assured tournament teams that the SKA is doing well and, under NBOA Marine Insurance, the SKA will continue to showcase king mackerel fishermen for years to come. Once again, the Nassau Sport Fishing Association did a wonderful job and, I might say, with a tremendous amount of hard work. A big hand goes to club officers John Hartrich, Joe Wise, Karl Mrozek, Marvin Leininger, Dave Smith and all of the volunteers who helped make this year's event a big success. "We also would like to thank our major sponsor, the News-Leader ," Hartrich said. "Also sponsors North Florida Budweiser Sales and Universal Electric based in Jessup, Ga."

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK P AGE 4B W EDNESDAY A UGUST 6, 2014 N EWS -L EADER / F ERNANDINA B EACH FL A backyard garden provides simple pleasures A special part of my every day is checking out my backyard garden. Myr egular companion is Flossie, our young Yorkie. She follows along not q uite sure what I find so interesting. There is nothing planned or formal about my garden. It is random and meandering sometimes blooming and sometimes not. A large cement frog stands sentry and spits water in a large bird bath. He is surrounded by the ever dependable k nock-out roses. They are the only roses I will ever attempt. I envy a friend who is t he rose whisperer her rose garden is legend. If the Big Guy and I are at a garden center and something catches my eye it is in our cart. The rule is survival of the f ittest. Plants that sputter get cut back and they either make it they dont. Eachs pring we watch for the return and rebirth of plants from years past. S ome get a little pushy and have to be cut back. So each morning, coffee cup in hand and little Flossie by my side, I dead head the day lilies, pull up weeds and generally tidy up. Nothing stays the same. We surprise the abundance of very fat rabbits a nd an occasional black snake that has taken up residence on the patio. Word m ust have spread that we have the best salad bar in town rabbits thrive. We have tested various sprays and theories about deterrents none have worked. I like a picking garden. Grabbing a r andom collection of bright colored flowers to take to a friend who needs a cheer-u p is always a winner. Whats not to love about day lilies? My garden is filled with l ilies in all colors and sizes, which generously offer fresh blooms each and every day. My early morning tour finds me pinching the dried blooms and reminding each plant that I expect more and more. Hydrangeas with their snowballs of pink blooms, plumbago with its ever-blooming a zure flowers, the elegant agapanthus with their thick, elegant orchid-like leaves o ffering up tall buds that burst into white and deep purple flower clusters are a few of my favorites. Big Guy and I moved into a new house four years ago and found a clean slate f ew trees, bushes or plants. We have had great fun populating the yard with bushesa nd trees that have thrived. We have added a birch, several bottle bushes. We a re especially proud of some magnolias that we brought home in the back of our station wagon. They are higher than the house now and amaze us at how fast they have grown. Of course we have our challenges dollar weed and the fattest rabbits on A melia Island. Such simple and delightful pleasures a backyard garden.

SUBMITTED P P r r o o t t o o n n t t h h e e r r a a p p y y The Fer nandina Beach Rotar y Club r ecently welcomed guest speaker Dr Charles Nichols, Jr., associate professor at the University of Florida Health Jacksonville Pr oton Therapy Institute. Nichols spoke on treatments for cancer, specifically proton therapy a type of radiation treatment that of fers a mor e tar geted appr oach to killing cancer cells. Nichols said radiotherapy works because nor mal cells can r epair the damage caused by radiation, but cancer cells cannot, causing tumors to shrink over time. However, radiation can damage healthy tissue, causing side ef fects during and after treatment. Proton therapy, however, provides a low entry and exit dose while tar geting the highest concentration of radia tion to the cancer site. Nichols said proton therapy of fers superior cur e rates with a reduced risk of side effects and a lower rate of radiation-induced secondary cancers. In fact, in some cancers like that of the pr ostate, cur e rates can be as high as 99 percent. The UF Proton Therapy Institute also offers targeted radiation treatment for lung, head and neck and pancr eatic cancers and lymphoma and childhood cancers.

He was adopted fr om us as a young pup, but his owners couldnt keep him because of a change in living situation. He s a hound mix and close to being fully grown. He loves to have fun and wouldr eally love play time with you! He gets along well with other dogs here at the shelter, and also gets along well with children who come to play with him. Hes crazy about tummy r ubs, too. He s learning how to walk on his leash and hes smart and aims to please. He was known as Fonzie when he was first with us because hes so handsome he has a soft, beautiful chocolate/tan coat and a little white tip on his tail! T yson will make you happy every day, and we think hed be a wonderful family or individual dog and a loyal companion forever! Paddy Anne is an amazingly beautiful Persian mix, and she has a great personality too. She loves to interact with you and will even car r y on a conversation in Persian of course! Shes flirty and friendly and a wonder ful companion. Shes about 6 years old and is declawed, so she needs to stay inside at all times. She s on a urinar y tract diet and has been doing just fine with it. She lived with people who had several cats but came back to us because she had pr oblems hitting the litter box, but weve taken corrective measures and shes had no problems while with us. (For instance, we replaced her cat litter with finely granulated litter that s easier on her paws.) She might prefer to be the only cat in the household so she can have her own litter box. Her luxurious coat is a joy to pet, and to look at shaded blue cream cameo/apricot. Shes not very big and shes already spayed, so she s r eady to go home with you. Shes a beauty inside and out!

The 39 Steps is the two-time Tony Award-winning hit that ran a recordbreaking 1,135 performance from January 2008-January 2010. The 39 S teps was originally a big, serious, c lassic 1935 Alfred Hitchcock movie a bout spies between the wars, dashing heroes and classy dames. Then in 2006, Patrick Barlow turned the story into farce, opened the show in London and won the Olivier Award (Britains equivalent of the Tony) forbest new comedy. Two years later, B roadway audiences adored it, too; B en Brantley, in T he New York Times, c alled it throwaway theater at its finest, adding, And thats no backhanded compliment. The plot remains the same as in the film. Richard Hannay, a debonair 37year-old Canadian bachelor, is boredo ne evening and goes out to the theater a lone. A mysterious woman in black, A nnabella Schmidt, fires a gun in the middle of a memory-artists act and asks for Richards help. Let me hide in your flat, she begs, presumably because he is a bachelor without a date. She tells him about the spies pursuing her and hints at weaponry-related s ecrets that could threaten Britains security. Annabella is murdered in the night, and Richard must go on the run to find the leader of the spy ring and clear himself of any connection with A nnabellas death. D uring his travels, Richard encount ers an extraordinary number of colorful people. A cast of four plays more than 140 characters, including a milkman, a newsboy, a cleaning woman, a train conductor, theater performers, politicians, secret agents, husband-andwife Scottish hoteliers, traveling ling erie salesmen and a wide variety of law e nforcement officials. Their quickc hange artistry is a running joke that never gets old, and if they ever seem dismayed by the challenge of changing hats, clothing, wigs and accents in fractions of a second, their frustration is right in the script. H itchcock devotees will be happy to s ee that The 39 Steps pays homage to a number of his other films. A cropdusting plane tries to run down our hero. Lots of birds perch on a house sign. Pamela suffers from vertigo. The hotel desk sign reads, Dial M for meal s ervice, and even the Bates Motel is s till accepting guests. A lfred Hitchcocks The 39 Steps w ill r u n at the Alhambra today thr o ugh Sept. 7. Show time is 8 p.m. for evening shows.

Each will make a cameo appearance during the performance, and the proceeds from the show in which they perform will go to the charity of their choice.
