MICHAEL PARNELL News-Leader A Nassau County deputy was justified in the use of deadly force whenh e shot and killed an unarmed man in the North Hampton subdivision in Y ulee in February, the State Attorneys Office has ruled. Deputy Wilfred Bill Quick, a 10year veteran with NCSO, shot Anthony Jamal Bartley, 21, on Feb. 10 about 20 m inutes after police received the first of numerous 9-1-1 calls about a shirt-l ess and bloodied man running wildly through the neighborhood, breaking w indows and trying to halt moving automobiles. The first call came from a woman w ith whom Bartley had spent the night, which might explain why he was s hirtless and shoeless during the incident. Another call came five minutes later from a panicked woman who described a bloodied Bartley in her yard, breaking a window in her house and banging on her garage door as she begged p olice to hurry. Another call came eight minutes a fter the first from a driver who had seen Bartley try to clamber onto her c ar. And there were more, at least eight in all. At the time Deputy Quick discharged his firearm at Mr. Bartley, Deputy Quick was confronted with a person who was described as being suspicious, and who (1ed in b lood and had just approached a moving vehicle, (2 D eputy Quicks lawful commands, (3 h ad charged at Deputy Quick and struck him multiple times, (4 attacked Deputy Quick a second time after being tased, (5 Deputy Quicks Taser from his hands, (6 Quick with closed fists after tellingD eputy Quick, you are going to have to kill me, the report stated. Under the above circumstances, Deputy Quick had reason to believe t hat the use of deadly force was necessary to defend himself and others from imminent death or great bodily harm. The report was prepared by Assistant State Attorney John I. Guy, director of the Homicide Major Crimes U nit in the Jacksonville office. State Attorney Angela Corey concurred with t he findings. The report and edited 9-1-1 calls were released Monday afternoon by Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper. A ccording to the report, an autopsy r evealed that Bartley had THC (tetrahydroc annabinol), the active ingredient in marijuana, and cocaine metabolite, the active ingredient of the coca leaf, in his system. The first 9-1-1 call came at 11 a.m. from a woman with whom Bartley had ustifiable use of deadly force by deputy $1.00 es down the street. I dont know what h es going to do. But I put his shoes and his p hone outside and everything. F IRST 9-1-1 CALLER SHOOTINGContinued on 3A B artley N assau County Commissioner Barry Holloway apparently lost his reelection bid Tuesday for a third term. County Commissioner Steve Kelley won the Republican primary election and will face w rite-in candidate Eugene A lley in the Nov. 4 election. H olloway was losing narr owly to George Spicer, with all ballots counted at 8 p.m., but r e sults ar e preliminary. W ith all 16 precincts reporting, and all early and mail ballots counted, Spicer led 5,331 to 5,152, or 48-46 percent. The winner would assume the seat because there is no Democrat or other candidate f or the seat in the November e lection. K elley defeated former c ommissioner Mike Boyle, 4,267 to 3,374, or 54-43 percent. This was a r e prise of the 2 010 election, when Kelley ousted Boyle from the commission. Turnout was light, about 11,100 voters, or about 20 percent of those registered. There were regional or s tatewide primary campaigns f or Republicans and Democ rats, and a district judges race o n the ballot as well. Complete results may be found at www votenassau.com. Kelley, Spicer victors A NG ELA D AUGHTRY News-Leader A public hearing on elec tric rate increases by Florida Public Utilities attracted a good number of residents, but those who spoke up mostly ur ged FPU to put electrical u tilities under ground. Members of the Florida Public Ser v ice Commission, which r egulates electrical rates for the state, moderated the hearing held at the Atlantic Recreation Center on Atlantic Avenue on Aug. 20. Also pr esent wer e representatives of the Office of Public Counsel, which represents the interests of FPU customers, and FPU representatives. FPU President Jeff Householder said base rates have risen only four times in the last 30 years in Fer nandina Beach, but an incr ease is now needed due to operating and corporate costs, plus costs of replacing the physical system on the island. FPU representatives have also said undergr ound utilities may not be safe on barrier islands due to hur ricane stor m sur ges. But J.R. Kelly an attor ney with the Office of Public Counsel, said, We dont believe (FPU has den of proof for the rate increase. According to his of fice, FPU s rate of r etur n on equity of 11.25 percent is extr emely inflated and unsup por ted by current market conditions. OPC also claims FPU is equesting excessive and unjustified bonuses and incentive compensation that are notr easonable or war ranted. FPU, however, has requested confidentiality for its bonus and incentive r equests. e believe the correct i ncr ease should be no mor e than $2 million, Kelly said to the audience at last weeks hearing. W e dont believe you should bear the burden of these costs. Berta Arias of the Amelia Tree Conservancy said underground utilities are the way to go for aesthetics, and would also eliminate the problem of high winds destroying above-gr ound utilities, as well as eliminating the barbaric pr uning of the tree canopy. Resident Pete Smith said there was a real problem with electric transformers exploding fr om being coated with salt water in beachfront areas, and questioned whether the new concr ete poles being er ected were making things any better. Smith also said he was looking for information on whether underground utilities were viable on the island, how much they would cost and when they could be installed. Resident Phil Scanlan said his first concer n with electric ity was getting underground utilities to make Amelia Island the best island in all of Florida. Scanlan said he also was having tr ouble figuring out how FPU calculated its rates, a nd called them inconsistent. Amelia Island resident Bob Weintraub also said FPUs numbers don t make any sense. My bill will go up $46 a month, Weintraub said. Some people really cant afford it. He added that all utilities in his neighborhood were already buried and that the ar ea has an elevation of under 10 feet. So when FPU says we cant have lines underground, I think they are being specious, Weintraub said. Michael Har rison, an Old Town resident, said he had worked on the Under gr ound Utilities Committee, which gave its final report to the city in 2011. The poles and overhead lines that we see are essentially a 100-year-old technology , Har rison said. Ther e is certainly room for moving to 21st-centur y technology . I hope that FPU will some time in the future be lenient to retirees like myself, said former FPU employee E.J. McClelland.

Alexander, former director of Jacksonvilles Ritz Theatre and Museum and now CEO of events services com-p any Alexander Productions, took the helm with Frink as v ice president. Alexanders subsequent departure led to F rink finally becoming president. Its a learning process, Frink said about leading the or ganization. I was just happy to be a part of something and contribute in anyw ay I can. A s the nation observes the 5 0th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, it becomes clear that small business owners continue to contribute to the American Beach success story and to the communitys futur e. Prior to passage of the legislation, no laws pr eventing r acial discrimination in public a ccommodations existed. White business owners could offer substandard service or altogether r efuse to ser v e b lack customers. Whiteowned hotels, particularly in the South, as a rule refused black patrons. Restaurant owners would not serve or offer seats to black customers who often had to wait at the back door for their take-out food order. I n contrast, the thriving shops, clubs, diners and m otels on American Beach brought dignity and freedom to black Americans who were denied full rights within segregated society. Today, the American Beach Villas, an active apartment community, continues tos timulate residential life on the beach. And although c losed for years, the E vans Ocean Rendezvous n ightclub, now publicly owned by the Nassau County gover n ment, has the potential to draw visitors to the beach after it is restored as part of the historic park connecting it to Nana sand d une. The sand dune stands a s a pr ominent environmental f eature on American Beach, within the National Park Ser v ice s T imucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve. Developing an economic base of ownership within theb lack community was all a p ar t of the American Beach b usiness plan, said journalist and Boston-based filmmaker Clennon King. King, who once worked as a jour nalist in Jacksonville, acquired papers that documented, among other things, the land hold-i ngs of A.L. Lewis, one of the A merican Beach founders. K ing conveyed his collection to Betsch, Lewis great-granddaughter who placed them in the car e of the Ritz Theatre a nd Museum. Black businesses got upstaged with the coming of the civil rights movement, said King, a principal owner of AugustineMonica Films. Lewis signature as a property owner was all over the place, King said, describing the d eeds included within the Lewis papers. He had propert y everywhere, including Harlem, N.Y. Lewis understood that the economic base empowered people, King said. Alfreda and Reedy Frederick had grown up together in FernandinaB each. The two lived and worked in Miami, but would r eturn to Amelia Island in the s ummer They planned the r estaurant for a long time, Frink said about his mothers oldest sister and her husband. They opened the place near American Beach in their retirement. Located off First Coast Highway about a quart er mile north of the primary b each entrance on Lewis S treet, the restaurant became well known for its crabcakes, Frink said. The most impor tant thing for any nationality or group of people is their history, said A.L. Lewis Society membera nd business owner Carlton J ones. So many of our chil d ren really dont know where we (black Americans fr o m, except for slaver y he said. e have to get our young people involved in lear ning the history, Frink agreed. I will do whatever I can to p reserve our history, he said. We have to maintain our history. If we dont talk about it, someone else, who r e ally doesn t know it, will.

The woman said Bartley had punched holes i n her walls, lunged himself through a window and pushed her through a window. (Shet hat Mr. Bartley was now outside the residence and bleeding. Hes down the street. I dont know what hes going to do. But I put his shoes and his phone outside and everything, she said during the 9-1-1call. My window was busted open and Im scared h e might come through it, she said. In response to questions from the dispatcher, t he woman said, His name is Anthony. I dont know his last name. Asked his race, she replied, Hes half black and half white. In a subsequent interview the woman said she saw Bartley snorting powder through a rolled-up dollar bill the night before the shooting. Later that evening he was acting paranoid a nd pacing back and forth with his fists clenched. Photographs of her residence revealed a brok en window and several holes in an inside wall. The domestic violence incident escalated after Bartley left her residence, according to the report.A frightened neighbor called 9-1-1 at 11:05 a.m. and said Bartley had broken a window, was bangi ng on the garage door and damaged her mailbox with his fist and head. A t 11:08 another call reported that Mr. Bartley, who was shirtless and not wearing shoes, j umped onto the moving car of one of (the bors, who stopped her car suddenly and caused him to roll off. He then approached another moving vehicle, but that car sped off. The woman told the dispatcher she was backi ng her car out of her driveway on Sagaponack Drive when Bartley hopped up on my car. Hes a ntagonizing people on my street. She said Bartley was bleeding from his head. A sked to describe him, she suggested he might be a light-skinned Hispanic . he looks o ut of place for our neighborhood. Bartley was reported walking down the street, b leeding, at 11:11. Another caller at 11:14 said Bartley entered her car and left a large amount of blood inside her car When Quick arrived about 17 minutes after the first 9-1-1 call, he stopped his patrol car in the s treet and got out. As Deputy Quick exited his patrol car, he saw Mr. Bartley running toward him w ith his fists clenched and his eyes opened wide. According to the report, the deputy then r emoved his Taser from the holster. He ducked a right-handed punch by Bartley, but was struck in the head by a left. He deployed his Taser, which knocked Bartley down. Bartley got up and punched Quick again, k nocking him to the ground. The deputy deployed his Taser a second time, and Bartley fell t o his knees. But Bartley got back up and continued his attack. As Mr. Bartley continued to punch Deputy Quick with closed fists, Deputy Quick fired his pist ol at Mr. Bartley. The initial gunshots did not stop Mr. Bartley, so Deputy Quick fired a second voll ey of shots. A witness, described as a doctor, confirmed Quicks account that the initial shots failed to deter Bartley, the report stated. Bartley was pronounced dead at the scene. An a utopsy revealed he was shot four or five times (it was unclear whether one gunshot wound was o ne or two merged shots). The documents released Monday also include d Bartleys criminal history. As previously reported, he had been convicted of the sale of cocaine and served time in prison. Some of his juvenile offenses were blacked out, but the juvenile criminal crimes that were listed included attempted a rmed robbery, attempted first-degree arson and violation of probation. B artley, who lived in Fernandina Beach and worked at a local restaurant, was the father of a t wo-year-old son. SHOOTING C ontinued from 1A A A v v i i s s i i o o n n r r e e a a l l i i z z e e d d The American Beach Museum will officially open on Saturday, Sept. 6 with a grand opening ceremony from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. at the A merican Beach Community Center, 1600 Julia St. T he opening exhibit, The Sands of Time: An American Beach Story, is the realization o f a longtime dream held by MaVynee Betsch, who passed away in 2005. Known far and wide as the Beach Lady, Betsch was a historian, activist and environmentalist. She was also the great-granddaughter of A merican Beachs founder, A.L. Lewis, president of the Afro American Life Insurance Co. Lewis founded American Beach in 1935 as a place of relaxation and recreation for African Americans. Providing an escape from the stress of racism and segregation for gene rations of devoted beachgoers, American B each quickly became both a desirable destin ation and a richly evolving community on Amelia Island. For decades, the Beach Lady was an iconic figure on the island, championing environmental causes and the preservation of the islands history, culture and stories. The success of American Beach and Betschs pass ion for the community and its heritage is a captivating story that makes for a fascinating exhibit at the new museum. Carol J. Alexander, the project director and curator of the museum, said, ... following int he Beach Ladys footsteps in the sand has been a spiritual and dedicated journey. Thisi naugural exhibition has been guided by her notes on pages, her voice in the wind over t he ocean and her spiritual energy that lingers in every crystal of sand on American Beach. It is an honor and privilege for me as her spiritual daughterto guide, curate and manage this project. The exhibit will feature the history of American Beach, photographs, a filmed tour of the beach by the Beach Lady, along with her signature seven-foot locks of hair. D r. Johnnetta B. Cole, sister of the Beach Lady, will speak at the opening ceremony. My sister, MaVynee Oshun Betsch, The B each Lady was a force! Without her vision, d etermination and bodaciousness, in cahoots with those whom were willing to join her in a righteous struggle, there would be no American Beach as we know and enjoy it today. It is with deep pride and joy that all of us in the A.L. Lewis family celebrate the opening of this museum. We are grateful to everyone who h as worked to make the dream of this museu m a reality
There are 17 trillion reasons why the U.S. is p aying higher interest rates on its government bonds than other countries like Germany, J apan and France. The 17 trillion number represents our approximate national debt in dollar terms. And thats enough dollar bills to put a frown on George Washingtons proud face. T he interest rate on government bonds is set predominantly by the marketplace. Them ore financially secure an issuer is, the less it has to pay (in interest) to borrowers. O bviously, the U.S. is not as fiscally secure as it used to be. The U.S. lost its coveted AAA credit rating (according to reputable Standard& Poors) during the infamous government shutdown, and the national debt and political t heatrics have flourished since then. If inflation sets in, interest rates could begin t o rise through dynamics of the marketplace. In this case, rising interest on the national debt c ould eventually become almost insurmountable. And the higher borrowing costs would trickle down to businesses and consumers. So why should you worry? Well, we witnessed what happened to old-line countries like Ireland and Portugal and Greece and Spain. They had to be bailed out by the European C entral Bank because their debts became (heres that word again) insurmountable in relation to their assets/income. And to simply r aise all sorts of taxes to generate more reve nues is not a legitimate answer. O f course, there are significant differences between those countries and the U.S., which h as one of the largest economies in the world. However, one major difference is that we dont have a European Central Bank to come to our rescue. Maybe China could fill that role, but would we really want that? T his is not to say that the U.S. faces a daunting outlook. In fact, the national debt has been s lightly reduced as our economy has recovered since the 2008 financial crisis. The recove ry has been slow, but sustainable so far. Another favorable trend can be deducted from the low interest rates around the globe. T o sell its tr e asuries (this is how the U.S. gov ernment borrows money), o ur country will not have to pay that much in interest b ecause no one else with any creditworthiness is. Illustrations of the magnitude of the $17 trillion figure are humorous, but sobering. F or instance, a stack of 17 trillion one-dollar bills wouldm easure 1 million miles. This is the distance from the Earth t o the moon multiplied four times. Some pundits argue that the national debt is even higher, if you factor in unfunded l iabilities. Others claim that some of the debt is essentially money we borrowed from our-s elves. Even still, it is surprising that borrowers d emand higher interest rates on U.S. debt than they do from other places. The interest rate currently on almighty 10-year U.S. treasuries is 2.5 percent. This rate dwarfs other countries, such as Switzerland and Japan (both below 0.50 percent), France and Germany (both around 1 percent), and Spain, Portugal and P oland all in a range close to the U.S. rate. This is a sad commentary about a country that has possessed the most financial clout in t he world for a long time. And a country with a n outlook that is hardly overly optimistic w ith political leaders who are hardly concerned. T here are other places in the world that pay much higher rates to borrow: Turkey at 9.20 percent, Russia at 9.30 percent and Uganda at 13.80 percent. Do we have to come up with 17 trillion reas ons why we would not want to be like those countries? I think we can. Or, I hope we can. S teve Nicklas is a financial advisor with a major U.S. firm who lives on Amelia Island. His b usiness columns appear in several newspapers in North Florida. He can be reached at 7530236. thenicklas team2@m sn .com As we watch the world s pin out of control, whether its in Ferguson, Mo., or the M iddle East, the issue of trust is vital to solving many o f the problems. We recognize building trust is never easy when dealing with adversaries, and maybe impossible when dealing with an enemy. However, what surprises us the most, a s seen with some recent events, is that even witha llies and team members, developing and maintaining t rust can be tricky. A big reason nothing gets done in Congress is the lack of trust, not only between parties, but also within part ies. The most recent examp les are the debates around the immigration and border i ssues. I dont know all the facts in Ferguson, but when the group in control withholds information, they lose trust fast. In addition, when the group in power, the police force, doesnt mirror the community, rightly or wrongly, there is going to bea lack of trust. In the H amas/Israeli dispute, no o ne is surprised by the lack o f trust between the parties as they both would like the other party to disappear. What keeps surprising our leaders is how much distrust the Israelis have for the U.S. negotiators, probably b ecause the U.S. side tried to b e even-handed rather t han just supportive of their a lly In my business career, I only had a few individuals I consider ed enemies, However I had plenty of adversaries, allies and companies/people whom I want-e d to become allies. I learned e arly the necessity of buildi ng trust with adversaries and people or companies with whom I wanted to become allies. Wher e I sometimes made misjudg ments about building trust were with clients and teamm embers. Because we usuall y had the same objectives ( i.e., profitability/winning), it was easy to assume that trust was inher e nt. However even if the objectives wer e the same, the a pproaches/strategy t hat I, the peer and c lient felt were necessary to achieve this objective, might be very differe nt. For e xample, marketing s ometimes pushed to increase price, while sales, fearing the loss of a big client, might push to reduce or maintain price and i ncrease units sold. In addition, if I delegated execution,i f the boss, the peer or the client didnt feel comfortable t hat my choice was capable of reaching the objective, they lost trust. If they thought I was capable, but they didnt like where I would come out or my approach, they might choose someone else. In addition, if they thought my firm was very capable but someone e lse had a bigger reputation, a nd their superiors or the b oard did not trust going away from the better known firm, we probably would not get the assignment. What creates the most distr ust is negative emotion, which is caused by fear, per-s onalizing and stress. If you a re trying to negotiate an i ssue with someone and your a ctions or ar g uments create emotion, the negotiation is in trouble. So look at the incidents at hand. Hate makes people ir rational and wher e hate is involved, whether it is in the Mideast, in Ferguson, M o., or in Congress there is n ever trust. If people feel the o ther party is denigrating or relegating them as our president does sometimes, trust disappears. When leaders don t share information, even for good reasons, people become distrustful. Whenp eople feel in over their h ead, as the police chief in F erguson probably does, they become stressed and do things which cr e ate distr ust. So how and when do you e ffectively reduce emotion and build trust and is it e ssential to winning? The truth is, if you do not need or c are if the other side is on board, you may feel trust is irrelevant. In business I used to call this the Godfather strategy. Modeled after Marlon Brando in the Godfather, this strategy is r elevant when you have all the leverage and dont careh ow the party feels or does after the negotiation is over. T he best example may be Ronald Reagan in dealing with air traffic controllers. This also may be how Mr. Putin felt about us in the C rimea situation. In addition, there are c ases where the principle involved is so important, or t he stakes are so high, you feel you must move forward, even if doing so creates distrust. Examples of the former involve whistle blowers or when you catch someone well thought of doing something illegal. An example of the latter is my agreeing to a deal with a top producer, a gainst the wishes of my o ther partners, who with g ood reason did not trust him, because I felt our firm could not afford to have this individual join our competition. On the other side is win/win negotiation, when trust prevails and b oth parties leave the table s atisfied that they have a chieved their key object ives. I will discuss how to control emotions and build trust in order to produce the win/win r esult in my next column.

S o me remarkable news recently came from a r emote corner of Floridas Panhandle. Deeply conservative Franklin County recently adopted a Leave No Trace ordinance t o clear beaches of furniture, debris, gear and holesb etween 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. Citizens were complaining of t he increased impacts observed on the beach and the ordinance was passed by a 4-1 margin to inspire more sharing of the beach with visitors and wildlife. As has been recently docum ented on Amelia Island and exposed by the News-Leader a ll the same conditions and circumstances are present on Amelia Island and likely to a higher degree yet they pass unaddressed by county leaders. Furthermore, impacts to wildlife are probably far more egregious on Amelia due to the multiple and diverse activi ties, greater development and associated beach lighting issues and higher numbers of u nleashed dogs. G iven the world-class beach resorts on Amelia and their focus on quality visitor experiences, one might anticipate that they would be lead-i ng the charge for a restorat ion of the integrity of Amelias natural beach. The m ore Amelias beach resembles its pre-development character, the healthier it will be, the more attractive it will become and the more benefic ial it will be for all visitors and wildlife. Fernandina has s hown leadership on these issues and the county would b e well served to emulate the citys efforts to maintain a clean, uncluttered and natural beach. Any visitor to Amelias B urney Park at American Beach is aware that Nassau C ounty has no lack of ordinances addressing beach a ctivities. However, they will note an absence of regulations addressing abandoned f urniture, debris, holes and l ighting and, despite the abundance of existing regulations, it is clear that oversight and enforcement are seriously lacking on county beaches. The evidence of this circums tance is overwhelming. It is past time to clean h ouse on Amelias beaches, begin a restoration effort to a natural condition and foster a more inclusive attitude of sharing the beach with all visi tors and wildlife. Despite issues of jurisdict ional boundaries, setback lines, property rights and so o n, Amelias beach is a public trust and natural heritage for all. If we dont treat it as such, it will continue to degrade and become a public r elations liability despite all promotion to the contrary. L ets raise the standards and maintain our natural heritage w ith the respect and appreciation it deserves. Now is the time for Nassau County to a dopt a leave no trace ordin ance and begin enforcing existing regulations to restore the shor e lines natural character and integrity for the benefit of all that use and depend on it. 6 A CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK W EDNESDAY A UGUST 27, 2014 OPINION News-Leader VIEWPOINT / P AT L EARY / F ERNANDINA B EACH Time for a sea change on county beaches 1998 S.Fletcher Ave. FREE WiFi Hotspot 277-6652www.SlidersSeaside.comBACK BY POPULAR DEMAND...Bringing back W W i i n n g g I I t t N N i i g g h h t t !Tuesday Nights 4 pm to CloseL L I I V V E E M M U U S S I I C C 7 7 N N I I G G H H T T S S A A W W E E E E K KFriday Nights at Breakers Bar 9 pm CloseKaraoke & Late Night Happy Hour1/2 Price Domestic Drafts, Wells,& House Wine BrunchEvery Saturday & Sunday10 am 2 pm $3 Bloody Marys or Mimosas Franklin County recently adopted a Leave No Trace ordinance to clear b eaches of furniture, debris, gear and holes b etween 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. P HOTOS BY PAT LEARY/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER D ogs roam freely on a south Amelia Island beach, doing their business at will.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 7A W EDNESDAY A UGUST 27, 2014 OPINION News-Leader VOICE OF THE PEOPLE P P o o r r t t o o r r n n o o p p o o r r t t As a textile conservator, I work w ith many museums. One of the first q uestions I always ask is, Do you h ave a mission statement? For those of you who are not familiar with a museum mission statement, in sim ple terms it is the beating heart of a museum. It articulates the museums educational focus and purpose and itsr ole and responsibility to the public a nd its collections. It is important b ecause a mission statement drives everything the museum does; vision, policy-making, planning and operations ar e all extensions of a museum s mission. The mission gives the gov erning authority a foundation from which it can strategize. The governinga uthority sets the museums strategic d irection through the mission, which i mpacts the policies and plans influ encing staff actions and behaviors. Businesses often write a mission statement not unlike a museum s. It is generally defined as a written decla ration of an organizations core purpose and focus that normally remainsu nchanged over time. Properly crafte d mission statements (1ve as filt ers to separate what is impor t ant from what is not, (2 markets will be served and how and (3 dir ection to the entir e organization. As I look at the port debate that surrounds the city I often wonder if anyone has thought in ter ms of a miss ion statement. Does the city have a l ong-term goal as to what type of city we want? Is it to be industrial or not? Are we, and the people who lead us, putting our focus on the city, downtown, historic district and the people who live there? Or not? Do we really want an enlarged port, with 600 trucks buzzing through town, traffic intersections backed up (Eighth and Centr e is already a nightmare)? Do we want tr ucks lined up to get into the port? Stacked containers? Larger metal sheds? Mor e people working, who will also increase traffic? Do we need more noise, pollution, rutted roads and increased train traffic downtown too? If so, we are heading toward a more industrial plan for our city I think we should take a step back and consider our future. Do we want a city that is beautiful for the all the people who live her e and the people who come to visit? How can we think of developing the downtown, while putting it right next to an even lar ger industrial complex? What is the impact not only to the city but to the envi r onment (land erosion and pollution and dredging of the waters surrounding us)? So instead of debating por t expan sion or not, we should be asking what is our mission for the downtown? We should filter out the things that don t add to our mission, serve the market (in this case the city its people and the envir onment). Do we have vision and policy making that will get us to our goal, or are we being distracted by shor t-ter ms plans of others that do not fit our mission of who we are or who we want to be? The answer to the por t debate, to be or not to be, is then easy to answer. Muf fie Austin Fernandina beach S S h h i i p p o o f f f f o o o o l l s s Is the expansion of our Port of Fernandina seriously being considered? Would the five people on the Nassau County Ocean Highway & Port Authority (three who live on Amelia Island) jeopardize our growing t ourist and convention industry? T he engineering firm of C ardno/Tec Genesis Group has pres ented a three-phase expansion master plan for our port. The Ocean Highway & Por t Authority (OHPA) Commission has approved and adopted this master plan. Phase 1 of this expansion involves r ear ranging some assets, utilizing existing pr oper ties o wned by the por t This phase appears t o be benign. Phase 2 and Phase 3 i nvolve plans that threaten the future of this island as we know it. I hope that the good people of Fernandina will keep their eyes and ears tuned to this expansion. Please visit www .fbfl.us and click on Por t Master Plan Update. If Phase 2 and Phase 3 become a r eality it would h ave a huge negative impact on this i sland and all of our lives. I do not t hink Im overstating the ef f ects this will have. The business model for this community over the last 25 years has been tourism, with a str ong and positive secondary manufacturing presence of RockT enn and Rayonier These com p anies have been good stewar ds of F ernandina and have provided many j obs for the people in our community The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island and the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resor t have invested over $150 million in the last thr ee years alone to make our island a destination for tourism and conventions. Our other hotels andr estaurants have invested significant m onies, as have the businesses in our historic district. And of course, you and I live on an island paradise. Natural beauty abounds, and people who care about the environment work hard to make sure the beaches are nearly pristine, Egans Creek is a sanctuary for our wildlife and I could go on and on. The effects of a port of this magnitude would be catastr ophic on our way of life. Projections for truck traffic alone ar e mind-boggling. In 2012, truck traffic on the island was 19,796. (I assume this is a primarily logging and container trucks.) The projected number of trucks coming onto the island over the bridge down Eighth and 14th streets in 2023 would be 151,244 a seven-fold incr ease in traf fic. Also, because of a lack of container storage ar ea at the port, even after filling in 2.5 acres of wetlands, there would not be sufficient room to handle all the containers. So offsite areas will have to be utilized for empty contain ers. These figures for extra truck trips are not declared in the proposal. Rail traf fic would also incr ease. In the proposal, there is a discussion about liquid natural gas transport, which would come into the Port of Fernandina via rail or truck tankers for offloading and shipment. In the proposal, it is stated that liquid natural gas is well suited to the Port of Fernandina, but there will likely be blast zone security issues that will have to be addressed. Really? The only rail system in this town runs through our historic district. Imagine what a liquid natural gas explosion would cause. Another item in the master plan is the purchase of the old pogy plant property. That is an 11.5-acre parcel of land by the nor th end boat ramp. The plan talks about a cruise ship terminal, but they state that OHPA could not help finance this ter minal. The cruise line would have to foot the entir e construction bill. The master plan states, This site could be used for a variety of uses such as a tank farm (petroleum or natural gas) or bulk storage and handling (fertilizers, for example). These materials bring to mind yet more hazardous scenarios. I have not touched on the dredging or filling in of wetlands. The tur n basin for these larger container ships would have to be increased by at least 300 feet. This is only part of the story. I ask you, again, to visit www.fbfl.us and click on Port Master Plan Update. If you love this island, talk to your com missioners and let your voice be heard! Steven J. Cr ounse Fer nandina Beach D D e e b b t t n n o o t t t t h h e e d d a a n n g g e e r r Much has been made this election season whether to incur debt for investment into long-ter m assets, or to use current reserves to pay for those assets and r etir e existing debt. While the debt is bad sound-bite might play to local fears and win votes, it is alarmingly misguided and potentially very dangerous. A financial crisis is not created by the presence of debt, but by the absence of liquidity. Ive spent 30 years as a tur nar ound CFO in a wide variety of mid-sized companies, taken companies suc cessfully thr ough bankr uptcy proceedings and raised over half a billion dollars of debt and equity in a variety of capital market conditions, often for firms in financial distress. A very common cause of that distress comes from companies spending operating cash for long-term assets when times are good but when tur moil r oils the financial markets and new cr edit is no longer available, these firms run short of operating cash and are forced into bankruptcy or a painful financial restructuring at gunpoint. All because of the absence of liquidity not the pr esence of debt. This same dynamic using current funds on long-term assets has also been the r ecipe for most ever y bank failure, anywhere, ever. Our country is a prime example: by any prudent measurement, we have way too much debt. Yet we are not in a crisis because the liquidity the cash we need to ser vice that debt keeps showing up at the last minute. About ever y week the U.S. Treasury has a bond auction of some maturity, and buyers keep showing up to buy those bonds. However, if one day they don t show, then the crisis is instantly upon us. You could also pick one of several other global developments that could spark another financial meltdown, and could happen at any time. It is pr ecisely because of this con tinuing worldwide uncertainty that good financial strategy now would be to protect liquidity at all costs not spending current reserves for longterm investments, and not paying down debt any faster than r equir ed. It is the same reason why smart CFOs all acr oss corporate America have been issuing debt to become mor e liquid taking advantage of interest rates that conceivably cant drop below zero, and raising huge amounts of cash. Disney recently issued 100-year bonds. Do you think Disney needed the cash? No, they simply r ecognized that now is the best time in a generation to issue debt, and a time wher e danger ous eco nomic uncer tainty r equires liquidity to outlast a crisis. Proper strategy for financing longterm assets is a far too detailed and nuanced discussion for a letter to the editor. Ive not yet studied in detail the financial plans of the competing politi cians to offer endorsement of any candidate. But I am extr emely alar med by the r epor ted statements by some politicians, by the Clerk of Court and by this newspaper of the no new debt mantra when anyone with basic financial experience through difficult credit markets should realize now is, without question, the most attractive time in our lifetimes to raise debt and the most strategic time to pr otect liquidity Our wonderful way of life in Nassau County deserves to be protected by solid financial planning and diligent risk management by our elected officials. Id hate to see our politiciansr un down our operating r eser ves through misguided policy disguised as good intentions only to face anoth er financial crisis with fewer r eserves, and credit markets locked down. Then well wondering how we suddenly became Coastal Detroit. Now is not the time to run scared when someone starts screaming debt is evil.W e need cool heads with experience and sound judgment that understand in this ver y uncertain economic world, our best financial defense is a thick operating account and an annually balanced budget that adds to that surplus each year Matt Laffey Fer nandina Beach P P o o s s t t a a l l S S e e r r v v i i c c e e In a letter to the editor (Aug. 22 the writer correctly noted that the U.S. Postal Service has been steadily losing money over the last five years. Why? In 2006, the Republican-controlled Congr ess legislated that the Postal Service had to pre-pay retiree health car e benefits to the tune of $5.5 billion per year As of now, Postal Service retirees health care benefits are pre-paid for the next 75 years. Thats right, benefits are pre-paid for employees who have not been born yet, while private companies ar e defaulting on employ ee pensions right and left. The r esponse fr om Congr ess? Time to privatize mail deliver y with a non-union company (can you spell FedEx or UPS?). When dealing with this Congress, it seems you cant take anything at face value.

Box 16766, Fernandina Beach, FL., 32035 E-mail: mpar nell@fbnewsleader com. visit us on-line at fbnewsleader.com I dont know about you but Im kind of old school in a lot of ways: as a teacher I prefer c halk and a chalkboard to smart boards, so called. I was perfectly happy with my old flip p hone and find my new, more up-to-date phone frustrating. As a college football fan I long for the days of pure amateurism even if it was a myth, it was a comfortable and reassuring one. And, as a local political observer, I remain dedic ated to our Founders vision of keeping the people as close to the politician as possible. U nfortunately for me chalk and chalkboards, flip phones, amateurism in college footb all and our Founders vision are all going the way of the buffalo. Some of the change is good, for the better, some not so much. In our political science classes we learn about linkage institutions, those institutions that link the people with the government, the politicians and the political decision-makingp rocess. Political parties, interest groups, the media and elections are all linkage institutions a nd its the last one, elections, that Im concerned about locally. Instead of keeping the p eople of Fernandina Beach as close as possible to the city commission, it seems that some want to move us farther apart, consider: The Founders those who wrote the city charter designated a three-year term for commissioners. The beauty of a three-year term is that it keeps the commissioner in a state of cons tant campaigning and being constantly in the midst of a campaign keeps the commissioner c loser to the people. Some commissioners reject the Founders notion, however, and want t heir terms increased to four years. The Founders wanted city elections to be held every year, but some commissioners want them held every two years. The Founders thought that holding city e lections at different times than county, or state or federa l elections would allow city voters and candidates to d ebate and discuss issues peculiar to the city in a deeper, more in-depth way. Sadly, this important element of the Founders vision went away s everal years ago. So, like so many things l ately, here we go again. Increase our terms from t hree to four years, the wideeyed commissioners say, because it takes at least two years to learn the job, and that would give us another two years to do stuff. Lets have elections every two years like t he other folks, itll save us money and voters wont suffer from election fatigue. Wasnt that a great thing we did a few years ago, moving city elections from April to N ovember? Turnout is up, right? I believe the Founders were right on the money. The length of a commissioners term has nothing to do with learning the job, it has everything to do with performance and then allowing the voters to comment on that performance through an election; the shorter the t erm the quicker the input. Allowing the issue of saving money to be p aramount with scheduling elections is unworthy in a democracy. Elections should be schedu led, like the Founders wanted, so as to allow c ity issues to be discussed openly and thoroughly. But it seems that the voters of Fernandina Beach will, in November, get to decide whether o r not to amend the citys charter to extend the term of commissioners from three to four y ears and to have city elections every two years, only. M y empirical analysis of the decision to move city elections from April to November has yielded this: 1) Turnout did increase, but many voters were unfamiliar with the issues and the candidates. Those voters tended to not vote in t he city election, or vote for the candidate whose name they had seen most often. 2) The c ity did save some money, but, as previously stated, is saving money what elections should b e about? I dont think so. Elections are a linkage institution, they do link the people to the government, the elected representatives and the political decision-making process. In order to be effective, though, I believe elections should mean something and keep the people as close to decision-makers asp ossible. Increasing the length of a commissioners term doesnt do that, it does the oppos ite and scheduling elections so that the citys is hidden beneath a mountain of other candidates county, state and federal accomplishes nothing beneficial to the voter. Im old school in a lot of ways and keeping democracy meaningful is one of them. Voter participation is down and one of the reasons given is a decline in political efficacy a perception by the voter that their vote means somet hing and that elected officials take them seriously. In other words, most voters are old s chool, too, at least when it comes to politics. I hope that when we vote in November, well d ecide to keep the link strong between city e lections and the people. Keep the terms three years and elections every year lets come down on the side of the Founders. Ron Sapp is a former city commissioner.

I ts been awhile since Ive walked along one of my favorite beach stretches from Peters Point to American Beach, and the last time I did it was not pleasant for me. There was nothing wrong with the beach or the sea or the people, the only thing w rong was me. I was in a sour frame of mood, anticipatingbad news about a job prospect, but thought this beach walk would take my mind off it. Well, it didnt. As usual I spent my time looking at nature, but what I saw that d ay all seemed negative. The ocean was stormy, the clouds w ere dark and there was no sunrise to be seen. Half a dozen large stinging P ortuguese man-of-war j ellyfish were scattered along the sand. Although these werec ertainly dead, their many-foot-long tentacles contained stinging nematocysts t hat discharge even when d etached and in tiny pieces, a nd cause a very painful sting i f encountered. Further along I found a dead seagull, not a h appy sight either. And to cap it off, I noticed that the lifeguard stand where I exited the beach was number 13. And no, I didnt get the job. B ut this time, weeks later, t he same walk was totally diff erent. The same sand, sea and sky, for sure, but the sights wer e mor e fun, or maybe I was just mor e r eceptive to the positives. To begin with, I got to the beach just in time for a beautiful sunrise,a nd right off the bat I found a f ossilized shark s tooth, my f irst in many months. I photographed a lone surf fisher m an highlighted in the dawn. A bit fur ther along the flat beach r evealed by the low tide I saw a greeting, Good Morning, recently carved into the sand. I thanked then earby people for their artw ork, but no, they didnt leave i t ther e instead they had just completed full-scale outlines of a thr esher and a great white shark, for Shark W eek, they told me. A fun encounter. Nature was vibrant this day too. I couldn t help but notice a squawking royal tern flying d own the beach with a fish in i ts mouth. Now why would this bir d adver t ise its find? The nearby seagulls were just waiting for a chance to steal someone elses fish. But then further down the beach I saw my answer A juvenile royal t er n in full begging mode was t r ying to get an adult s atten t ion. But instead, the adult flew away and the begging chick followed. My best guess was that the terns were in the pr ocess of teaching their of f spring to be independent. Her e I come with a fish. Now follow me and catch your own! The sand was interesting too, this low tide morning. Ghost crabs were scurrying into holes beside mounds of sand they had excavated. Here and there little humps of sand shelter ed some sor t of mollusks, which I guessed might have been olive shells by the oval shape of the humps. I tried to dig up a few but they were deeper than I thought and elusive. Then, finally I had success when I saw a squirt of water as I was digging. This time I found the mollusk, a moon snail, per fectly round, not oval at all. I photographed the creature, then put it back deep into its sandy refuge, safe again. This time, this day, I didnt make it to lifeguar d station number 13. Instead I noticed a couple of wooden beach chairs up against the dunes labeled Thank you for Glendas healing beach chairs, please enjoy! a friendly touch for sure. I exited the beach here past a well-kept, cheerful old style American Beach home, past Nanas Dune and on up Lewis Str eet to visit the little chapel maintained by a local resident, John. Even my walk back to my car on the pedestrian pathway along the concourse was filled with pleasantries. I hear d and located a pileated woodpecker pounding on a tree trunk high in the canopy I admired the fallen native muscadine grapes on the pathway and those on vines high up in the tr ees that pr ovide food for birds and squirrels. Dogwalkers and joggers gr eeting me as we passed each other. This walk was a positive way to start my day and foretold a good day to come, just like my previous walk here was a negative beginning to ad ay that got worse from there. I know its superstitious thinki ng to look for signs in nature to tell my future outcomes, and Im a scientist, for heavens sake, that cant believe this stuff.

M M e e t t h h a a r r r r e e s s t t s s Two people were arrested for manufacturing methamphetamine Thursday at a Callahan residence after an investigation resulted in a s earch warrant by the Nassau County Sheriffs Office, according to a press release. During a search by the NCSO Narcotics Unit at 8:35 a.m. at 540701 Lem Turner Road, deputies found plastic bottles, plastic tubing and a glass pipe with methamphetam ine residue. A further search revealed ammunition, multiple precursor chemicals including boxes of pseudoephedrine, two cooking vessels and other equipment used to manufacture methamphetamine. Nicholas Adam Holden, 30, of Callahan, was arrested on charges of manufacturing or producing methamphetamine, unlawful possession of listed chemicals, possession of drug p araphernalia and possession o f ammunition by a convicted f elon. Patricia Ann Robson, 41, of Callahan, was arrested on charges of manufacturing or producing methamphetamine, and unlawful possession of listed chemicals. H H u u f f f f i i n n g g a a r r r r e e s s t t A Yulee man was arrested after a deputy found him inhal ing from an aerosol can while behind the wheel of a vehicle, according to a sheriffs office report dated Aug. 13. While investigating r epor ts t hat a suspicious vehicle had c rashed into a Dumpster b ehind the Dollar T r ee stor e on A1A in Y u lee, a deputy found a black four -door SUV with a man inside. According to the report, the man was sitting in the driver s seat with the all windows down and the engine running, a nd appeared to be inhaling f r o m an aer osol can. The man did not r e spond to repeated commands to step out of the vehicle, the report stated, even after the deputy banged on the drivers sider ear quarter panel and continued shouting commands to g et the drivers attention. F or safety the deputy took out his gun and appr o ached t he drivers door with extreme caution, according to the report, and again commanded the man to step out of the vehicle. The driver continued t o inhale from the aerosol can, but finally rolled down a win-d ow to speak with the deputy. On being told to step out of t he vehicle once again, the man refused, according to the report. Seeing both of the mans hands in plain sight, the deputy switched from his gun t o a dart-firing stun gun, according to the report. At thatp oint, the man removed his keys from the ignition and s tepped out of the vehicle. According to the report, the mans speech was extremely slurred and he was very unsteady on his f eet. The deputy also reportedly had to give the man support to keep him from falling over. The man said he was meeting his wife at Home D epot and denied inhaling f rom an aerosol can, the report said. When asked why he had ignored the deputy, the man said he thought the officer was just driving by. Due to performing poorly on field sobriety exercises, and b ecause a witness stated he o bser ved the man hit the D umpster, the man was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. He was also charged with inhaling or ingesting dangerous chemicals. Both are misdemeanors.

Come see me, Eric Childers Locally owned and operated www.fivestarquicklube.com (904NL1401 P0LICE REPORT Holden Robson Identity thieves target kids too JASON ALDERMAN For the News-Leader Im sorry to report that child identity fraud is alive and well in 2014. If anything, the problem m ay be worsening as identity thieves devise new methods to s teal and use childrens personal information. Most commonly, theyll harvest kids dormant Social Security numbers (SSNs ly obtain jobs or open fraudulent bank and credit accounts, m ortgages or car loans. Many victims dont realize t heres a problem until they later apply for a student loan, bank account, job or apartment and are turned down because of the poor credit history someone else racked up. Some families are even hounded by collection a gencies or arrested because the debts or criminal activities w ere so extreme. There are no completely foolproof methods to protect your childrens identities, but here are some precautions you can take: While its tempting to simp ly not register your kids for SSNs until they turn 18, thats not practical in todays world. For one thing, theyll need one to be claimed as dependents on y our taxes. You may also need SSNs for your kids to obtain medical coverage or government services or to open bank accounts in their names. Because each persons SSN is unique, its not uncommon for schools, healthcare providers, insurance companies, b anks and others to require them as ID. However, dont be a fraid to ask: Why do they need to use an SSN is there a legal requirement? Will they accept alternative identification? What will happen if you dont d isclose it? What security precautions d o they take with personal information? Will they agree not to use the SSN as your childs personal identification number on correspondence, account statements or ID cards? W atch for these clues your childs personal data may have b een compromised: They receive pre-approved credit account offers. They receive calls or billing statements from collection agencies, creditors or government a gencies. Youre unable to open a bank account in their name because one already exists with the same SSN. Theyre denied credit, employment, a drivers license or college enrollment for unknown or credit-related reasons. R emember, there could be legitimate reasons why your c hild is receiving credit offers. For example, it could be a marketing outreach from an affiliate of your bank or because you opened a college fund in their name. If you strongly suspect or h ave evidence that identity theft has been committed, you can: F ile a police report and keep a copy as proof of the crime. Contact the fraud units at the three major credit bureaus for instructions: Equifax (800525-6285), Experian (888-3973742) and TransUnion (800-6807 289). Notify the Federal Trade C ommission (877-438-4338 whose Identity Theft site contains information on fraud alerts, credit freezes, how to work with police and much more (www.ftc.gov). A sk Social Security (800-7721213) whether anyone has reported income using your childs SSN. Search Identity Theft at www.ssa.gov for information. Contact the IRS Identity Protection Unit (800-980-4490 The FTC recommends cont acting the three credit bureaus around your childs 16th birthd ay to see whether they have credit reports on file. (There usually wouldnt be unless theyre an authorized user on one of your accounts.) If there is a report and it has errors due to fraud or misuse youll h ave time to correct it before you kid needs to use credit. W arn your kids about the dangers of revealing personal information by phone, email, or social networking. Dont hesitate to monitor their accounts and install parental blocking software. And remember, if they s hare your computer, a downloaded virus could infect your a ccounts as well. Jason Alderman directs Visas financial education programs. Bicycle, pedestrian safety tips

ALAN DONALDSON A ND CINDY DICKINSON For the News-Leader If smiles and laughter are measures of success, then both the 2014 Boys & Girls Clubs of N assau County Summer Camps were highly successful. T he dedicated staff and volunteers at Miller Freedom C enter in Nassauville and Roberts Learning & Achievement Center in Fernandina Beach are deeply vested in the success of ourl ocal youth. Throughout the year the centers provide a safe p lace wher e ar ea youth have t he oppor tunity to participate i n carefully planned, creative, educational and, most of all, enjoyable activities. Roberts Club Unit Director Sherryl Smith emphasizes that themes of safety and r e spect for others are maintained in every program by teaching sportsmanship and awareness of surroundings. T he goal for this years summ er camp pr ogram was B est Summer of Your Life. Some 260 participants from ages 6 to 18 agr e e it was just that. Varied activities included a Field Day sponsored by Kohls, blueberry picking, swim lessons, talent shows, numer-o us field trips, a Basketball C amp, a Fashion Show a C arnival, bowling at the Batt Family Fun Center, the Read Acr o ss America pr o gram and mor e. Read Across America is an initiative of the National Education Association, offered to schools and nonpr ofits t hr oughout the nation, dedic ated to the fact that better r e ading skills impr oves kids school performance in all subjects by making reading fun to do. Pr ograms differ between younger kids and those older than 10. Puppet shows and Dr. Seuss liven up the sessions. Summer Camp provided older childr en with the oppor tunity to enter contests, such as for prose and poetry. The winner of the pr ose contest was Bridget Peeples for her book r eport on the Adventures of Tom Sawyer; runner-up was Hailey Jones. The poetry contest was based on the concept of fr eedom and was won by Traysea Malama-Auger for her poem on World War II. Noah Smith s Revolutionar y W ar poem was runner-up. Teen participants had their own programs. They produced, designed costumes and sets, and performed The Wiz and Thr ee Little Pigs. On field trips to Jacksonville teens learned about the civil rights movement, endanger ed and abused animals, and hip hop music. They took yoga lessons, attended classes to teach success in secondary education and had a visit from the State Attor ney General s Of fice to learn about online safety. And they gave back to the community by volunteering r egularly at the Barnabas Center Food Pantry in Fernandina. But the July 23 Summer Carnival was the highlight of the 2014 Boys & Girls Clubs Summer Camp for 240 young people. They had the most fun prancing under the str eams of water fr om Nassau County Fir e & Rescue hoses in the Miller Club parking area. The firefighters donated bikes as prizes for the best artwork by kids depicting fire trucks. Sparky, their mascot, made the pr e sentations. The water slides, field games and face painting got a lot of attention fr om the young people, to say nothing of the great food prepared and served by Ritz-Carlton volunteers. No rain marred the day, which capped a hugely successful six-week summer camp at both Roberts and Miller Clubs. 12A W EDNESDAY A UGUST 27, 2014 NEWS News-Leader CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 277-3942 CFC 1426558 F LCFC 057478GAMPR 006661 474390 E.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK OUTDOORS/ TIDES WEDNESDAY, AUGUST27, 2014NEWS-LEADER/ FERNANDINABEACH, FL ORIDA BETH JONESNe w s-LeaderIt's time again for Friday night lights and both the Yulee Hornets and Fernandina Beach Pirates were in action last week in preseason Kickoff Classics. Y ulee High School's football team hosted the First Coast Buccaneers. The FBHSPirates traveled to Lee. Both teams are in action again this week but on the same field. Yulee hosts Fernandina Beach Friday in the 2014 season opener. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. Ty r eke Hubbard scored on a 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown Friday night to put the Fernandina Beach High School Pirates up 7-0 over host Lee in the preseason Kickoff Classic. The Lee Generals responded with a field goal but the Pirates were back in scoring position when Andy Reyes returned an interception 20 yards to the Lee three. Hector V anlennep scored two plays later. Lee answered just before halftime with a touchdown. The Pirates led 14-11. "Then in the third quarter our offense and Lee's offense exploded," FBHSCoach Travis Hodge said. Devin Bulna threw a pair of touchdown passes, connecting with Chris Grego for 31 yards and Hubbard for 37. Bulna also had a 60-yard TD run. "I felt offensively we really had some guys grow up,"Hodge said. "Devin really played well. He's got to fix some things; he knows that and he will. Chris Grego played extremely hard with great effort very proud of him. "I thought the strength of our team the whole night was our offensive line. Six seniors played very, very well for us. If those guys keep playing at a high level we will have a fun year. "Defensively we got out of position a few times and Lee has some speed so they make you pay for that. But we'll fix some fundamental things there and we'll be a better team this Friday than we were last Friday." This Friday, the Pirates head to Yulee for the 2014 season opener.

They host the Fernandina Beach Pirates Friday in the 2014 season opener. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. that can play,"Hodge said. "Their defense is well coached and very active. It will be a battle. "We have built a lot of respect between our program and theirs; Bobby and I have a great r elationship, so it should be a great game. "Respect on both sides, well coached, disciplined, so, if I was a fan I'd come out and watch it. It'll be a lot of fun.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Be ach tarpon and more ...Chris Foster cast his barbed menhaden right into the middle of a washtub-size boil and smack in the midst of a giant beachside school of menhaden. It was simply a crazy morning as tarpon were busting schools of menhaden everywhere along the beaches of Amelia Island from the Elizabeth Point Lodge all the way to the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort at the southern portion of Amelia Island. Keith Williams chose to cast a large plastic tail lure rigged to a led head jig, working the weighted lure deep into the school of menhaden, also frequently called pogies or bunker. As expected Foster's spinning rod soon took a deep bend, making a strong run for the open ocean. However, with a wink of an eye, his fishing line parted, leaving our fishing party speechless in the warm summer sun. "Wow, that was a big fish," Foster said. "There was absolutely nothing I could do to physically stop that fish from breaking my fishing line, which was the result of a big fish that simply did not want to get caught." Seconds later a pair of 100pound tarpon busted the same school of menhaden 50 feet from our fishing boat. Both Foster and Williams had suddenly forgotten the big fish that had gotten away and were now casting their tarpon baits and lures right into the middle of a crazy tarpon feeding frenzy. "It has been crazy tarpon fishing," Capt. Jimmy Johnson said. "I recently guided Billy Burbank and son Hunter to an excellent morning of tarpon fishing. We had tarpon all around the boat while anchored up and chumming. "At the end of the tide we must have jumped over 20 tarpon and released several at the side of my Rappi charter fishing boat." Several tarpon boats were targeting Amelia Island tarpon Saturday from the St. Marys inlet all the way to the fishy waters of Nassau Sound. W ith surface water temperatures running in the mid 80s paired with ultra-clear water, a flooding early morning tide and literally a beach full of menhaden schools, conditions could not have been better for targeting Amelia Island tarpon. A nearby tarpon boat pulled right into the same large school of menhaden we were targeting and cast a barbed menhaden perfectly into a small school of foraging tarpon. As the angler's barbed menhaden sank slowly into the beach feeding frenzy, a 100-pound tarpon gobbled up the angler's bait and was soon hightailing it out to deep water. Seconds later, the giant tarpon leaped from the water with gill rattling noises that prompted the two beach fishermen into shouts of angling success. After a 15-minute battle, the two anglers returned to the school of beach tarpon. "We just hooked a much larger tarpon and released it minutes before you arrived," one said. The tarpon fishing has been excellent this year with the plentiful supply of menhaden, clean water conditions and the lack of thermoclines. Capt. Danny Flynn guided Mark and Val Matta to firstplace honors in the Cabin Fluff Tarpon Cup over the weekend. "We hooked five and r eleased four tarpon," Flynn said. Val Matta had never fished for tarpon before and caught all four tarpon. I was impressed. "This has also been an excellent summer for tarpon fishing with the lack of thermoclines, clean water conditions and a good showing for menhaden. With these stable patterns, our local stock of tarpon develops a more consistent feeding pattern as well." Flynn predicts that if we have stable weather condiOUTDOORSTerry Lacoss OUTDOORS4BWEDNESDAY, AUGUST27, 2014 SPORTS News-Leader RECREATION ROUNDUPFERNANDINABEACH P ARKS & RECREATION DEPARTMENT RECREATION ROUNDUP For information on any of these programs, log onto www.fbfl.us or call 277-7370.

Britt became inter ested in the pr ogram after meeting students fr om Brazil and Croatia that the club brought to Nassau County After completing the intensive screening process, Britt was accepted into the program and traveled to Istanbul. He attended a private school in the mountains of Marmara where he helped teach English to other students and attended classes to lear n T urkish but said it was difficult to master. He visited western Turkey and the Black Sea region, the biblical town of Ephesus, the r uins of the ancient city of T r oy and was surrounded by history in Istanbul with its many Greek, Roman and Byzantine influences. He gr ew close to his host family and has kept in constant contact since his return. Britt said his time in Turkey exemplified the RYE mission of building a cultural link of understanding and peace between the U.S. and other countries. He is pictured with club President Dr. David Page. A day on the river with the Atlantis II A day on the St Johns River is a lways a treat. It became more of a treat when I was invited to be part of a group that would climb aboard the Atlantis II, an amazing ship with more than one story to share. Not a s mall girl, she is 220 feet long, has 32 staterooms, a fully equipped hospital,a dining room that seats 45 and everything a scientific explorer could w ant. Capt. Dave Allan and 40 guests boarded the Atlantis II in a shipyard adjacent to EverBank Field. She had spent several months being r ehabbed and was ready to travel home to her dock in Mayport. As wec ruised to Mayport, I explored the ships amazing labyrinth of decks, r ooms and specialty areas. It was easy to get lost. Capt. Daves passion for the amazing ship with so much history was clear as he shared stories about her adventures around the world. The Atlantis is just one of Allans many toys. His collections include planes, helicopters, motorcycles, cars, trucks, motor homes and boats o f all sizes. He is licensed to fly anyt hing in the air balloons, hang glide rs, trikes, helicopters and commercial jets. He is equally qualified on water he is licensed to captain any size boat up to 3,000 tons. Probably his biggest toy, the Atlantis II, was b uilt in 1962 as a research vessel when it was owned by Woods Hole Oceanographic I nstitution in Massachusetts.S etting off on her second exploratory v oyage, she was interrupted and sent to join the search for the U.S. nuclear submarine T hresher, which had sunk just offC ape Cod in 8,000 feet of water. A tlantis II collected the first photographic evidence of the subs remains. No other research vessel has covered as much of the ocean. She has sailed more than 1 million miles on every ocean of the world conducting marine research and engineering projects. Perhaps the most romantic and fascinating assignment was the e xploration of the R.M.S. Titanic. F irst discovered by another research v essel, it was the Atlantis that staged the dives of the Alvin, the small manned deep ocean research submersible that took the pictures of the Titanic on the ocean floor. Capt. Dave shared, If she could t alk she would have tales to tell. S hes done many other things in her c areer that no other ship had done. She has spent 8,135 days in a row at sea and has been on ever y ocean in the world and both North and South Poles. If its on the face of this planet and its got water, shes been there. C lose to $5 million has been spent r efurbishing the 220-foot vessel. S hes for sale. Allan hopes to find a new owner who will appreciate her histor y and her amazing capacity for even more adventures. There is even some interest in opening her to the public for tours. C apt. Dave enthused, Shes r eady to go back to work T o receive her weekly newsletter or get information about her books including her four Fr o m the Porch books contact Dickie at firstname.lastname@example.org.

They were joined by officials from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Florida Fish a nd Wildlife Conservation C ommission. Y uma arrived at Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park on April 3. Yuma is a Native-American word that means son of the chief. As a one-week old kitten, he was discovered barely alive o n Jan. 23 by Florida Fish and W ildlife Commission biologists c hecking on the den of a female panther in the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge in Naples. The kitten had apparently been abandoned, was dehydrated and non-r esponsive. He r eceived emer gency care at A nimal Specialty Hospital in N aples and rehabilitative care at L owry Park Zoo in Tampa. It is an incredible honor to have Yuma at the Wildlife Park, said Clif Maxwell, district chief for the Florida Park Ser vice. While we ar e sad dened he cannot be r eturned to his natural habitat, this will pr o v ide visitors to Homosassa S prings the opportunity to view o ne of Florida s rar est and most iconic endangered species. We are very proud to add Yuma to the Homosassa family and will enjoy watching him gr ow Since he cannot return to the wild, he will live at EllieS chiller Homosassa Springs W ildlife State Park, where he w ill ser v e as an ambassador for his species. Park staff and volunteers have been preparing this exhibit for the rambunc tious panther kitten for the last seven months. It is estimated that only 100 t o 160 adult panthers r emain. M ost of them ar e located in L ee, Collier, Hendry, Dade and Monr oe counties. By 1995, only 20 to 30 panthers remained in t he wild. That year, eight female T exas cougars were relocated t o the area to restore genetic viability. The biggest threat to Florida panthers is loss of habi tat. Florida panthers ar e con sider ed an umbr ella species. Many plants and animals ben efit from its protection and thep rotection of its habitat. P anthers prowl the same w oods as black bear coyotes, bobcats, white-tailed deer, wild hogs and many smaller mammals. Many varieties of bir ds, r eptiles and amphibians live side-by-side with panthers. Rar e tr opical plants flourish in the s outh Florida wilderness where p anthers roam. By protecting h abitat for panthers, we pr o tect our envir o nmental heritage and health, and pr ovide a wildlife legacy for our childr en and generations to come. R escued panther kitten Yuma, now healthy and growing stronger, w ill reside in Ellie S chiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, where he will serve a s an ambassad or for his species.
