MICHAEL PARNELL News-Leader The par e nts of a 5-month-old child were arrested Monday after investigators determined the infant had deep second-degr ee burns on his head, shoulder and bottom that were nott r e ated by medical professionals for s ix days. The parents intentionally and knowingly inflicted great bodily harm and per manent disability and most likely permanent disfigurement by (the father) bathing his child in scalding water , by neither par ent seeking med i cal tr eatment sooner and by chang i ng diapers and even by holding the i nfant while he was in gr e at pain, police said. Denzel Malik Albertie, 19, and Shawna Noel Corbett, 26, both of 1306 Hickory Terrace, Fernandina Beach, were charged with aggravated child abuse. They r emain in jail under a $100,002 bond for Albertie and $50,002 for Corbett. T he child r emains hospitalized at t he W o lfson Childr ens Hospital Burn Unit in Jacksonville after receiving surgical pr o cedur e s to tr eat the bur ns. Additional surgery is likely. The baby was given morphine for its pain. ANGELA DAUGHTRY News-Leader A public town hall meeting will be s cheduled within the next 4-6 weeks to air concerns about a Port of Fernandina proposal to transport imported coal through Fernandina Beach, state Rep. Janet Adkins said Tuesday. City officials had asked the Florida D epartment of Environmental Protection to convene a public hearing b efore approving a permit requested by Port operator Kinder Morgan to transport coal from vessels to trucks, a nd for the loading of coal to barges for temporary storage. The permit is necessary to fulfill DEP requirements for the control of particulate matter, that is, coal dust, in the environment. T oday is the deadline for public comment on the permit, and that s parked concern among the public (see Voice of the People, 7A). While we understand and appreciate the FDEP permitting process, we hear our communitys concerns and are compelled to reach out to the FDEP as a result. Is there any possibility for a public hearing or community f orum to field questions and inform the community about the activities proposed by Kinder Morgan, prior to finalization of the permit? asked Mayor Ed Boner, City Manager Joe Gerrity a nd Deputy City Manager Marshall McCrary in an email to FDEP on M onday. The answer was yes, Adkins said a fter conferring with DEP representatives Tuesday afternoon. She too has received a flood of emails from constituents concerned. The town hall meeting will provide an opportunity for people to raise t heir concerns, ask questions and get answers, Adkins said. e will focus solely on the Kinder Morgan permit for imported coal transport, and not other issues raised b y a port master plan made public recently. A dkins said details of the hearing time, date and place will be forthcomi ng. The meeting likely will be held in Fernandina, she said. Kinder Morgan spokesman Richard Wheatley said the requested permit for coal transport is not related to the controversial Port expansion p lan that was presented to the citys Planning Advisory Board in August. Approval was put on hold due to concerns of residents that live near the Port, and a subcommittee was formed t o address certain aspects of the 10year plan. A ccording to permitting language submitted by Kinder Morgan to DEP, This operation will consist of transloading inbound coal from vessels, via ship-mounted clamshell, up to possibly Port seeks to truck coal through town $1.00 PORTContinued on 3A 2 held for abusing 5-month-old child Alber t ieCorbett CHILDContinued on 3A J O H N A STRIC KLAND RUSH C ommunit y N ewspapers After months of speculation, the National Park Service announcedT uesday that the Cumberland Island f er r y will retain its departure point in S t. Marys, Ga. T he upcoming bid process had sparked conversations on both sides of the St. Marys River with some Floridians lobbying for a Fernandina Beach depar tur e point, either in addition to or in place of St. Marys. Calvin Lang has operated the ferry since January 1987 out of St. Marys. His current 10-year contract has been extended to Dec. 31. A new requirement of the contract is to operate the Lands and Legacies tours, running between five and eight r oundtrip tours up the island each day with tour guides hired by the contractor. Each trip covers almost 30 miles and lasts five to six hours. In August 2011, park staff implemented Congr ess 2004 legislation that r equir ed motorized tours of the island s north end. Nearly 4,000 people took the t our in the first year but the pr ogram did not appear to be self-sustaining by 2012. Additionally, the operator will be required to: Run the fer ry from St. Marys to Dungeness and the Sea Camp docks. Provide ferry service six times a y ear for hunters from St. Marys to P lum Or chard. Rent carts at the Sea Camp campground. The contract also authorizes the contractor to of fer limited food and beverages; provide ferry service to Plum Or chard twice a month; rent bicycles; run a charter service to Cumberland fr om St. Mar ys or Fernandina Beach for groups such as students on a field trip or a wedding party; and operate a water taxi service between St. Marys and Fer nandina.

T he News-Leader o f Sept. 17, 1964 was f illed with news of Hurricane Dora, which hit Sept. 9-10. The newspaper is from the collection of Stanley Bunch, who recalls sheltering from t he storm at his home on Sycamore Lane, w here he still resides today. Bunch recalls that heavy rain preceded the winds from Dora, causing countless trees to bend rather than snap and b reak. Bunch worked for Rayoniers timber d ivision and recalls felling bent trees for weeks after Dora. However, he was able to right six young pine trees he had planted on his property, where they s till stand today. Granville Doc B urgess, who would go on to become chief judge in Nassau County, was a member of the football team pictured at the top of the paper, Bunch noted. A plaque at what is today Main Beach commemorates the program to construct a rock r evetment to prevent f uture erosion from s torms such as Dora, m iddle left.

t hree hoppers and then to trucks for offsite delivery. Port business and employment continues to decline at the Nassau Terminal, Wheatley said in an email, and this (coal transport) project could h elp the Port regain some of the business lost over the past s everal years. According to Port officials, the Port of F ernandina has lost more than half of its cargo deliveries during that time, as well as some vital clients. Wheatley said the Port does n ot as yet have any coal-transport customers, but that itc ould be imported from other countries to be used by local s takeholders. Coal would come in by vessels and would either be trucked to the end user, or excess coal could be transl oaded onto barges for shipment, Wheatley said. Thisw ould be based on the needs and requirements of future cust omers. e would not anticipate the amount (of coal nificantly different from the amount currently railed through town, Wheatley said. The volume of coal to be hand led and the number of trucks would be determined based on local customer need, but our l ong-term goal would be to offl oad vessels and utilize off-road m ethods to transport coal to local stakeholders. Kinder Morgan ... continually looks for ways to keep everyone at the Port employed, Wheatley said, and to g enerate enough tonnage through the terminal to keep t he Ocean Highway & Port Authority profitable. Wheatley said in a phone interview that he had no specifics yet as to how much would be transported from the Port. He also said he did not k now if any new equipment would be built at the Port to h andle offloading of coal. FDEP spokesman Rich Rachal said Monday the permit was needed because the Port wants to change operations from break-bulk cargo to transporting coal, and needed t o address how particulate matter would affect the environm ent. He noted the DEP has so far determined the Port has adequate facilities to deal witht hat particulate matter. R achal said the DEP had r e ceived some public comm ents about the coal-transport permit, and that the deadline for comment is today, Sept. 10. Email comments to the Florida Department of Envir onmental Protections contact Russell Simpson at russell. s email@example.com.. Rachal said the permit would be partly based on evaluation of those public comments and could not say how long it would take to evaluate the public input. We will leave no stone unturned to ensure the health o f the citizens and the environment, Rachal said. We dont have any deadline for when these operations would begin. We have to evaluate and address all conditions. The 10-year Port expansion p lan, which was sponsored by the Ocean Highway & Port A uthority and developed by consultants Genesis Group, has proposed extending theP orts wharf, possibly using t he former pogy plant propert y exporting liquid natural gas, a ccommodating vessels up to 800 feet and increasing truck and rail traffic to the port, among other proposals. firstname.lastname@example.org September 9, 1915Estelle Griffin is99Happy Birthday!Endless Love!

W hy? Labor costs are lower in Colombia, and its much more cost effective to move coal by ship than by train, a ccording to the newspaper. Coal imports to the U.S. surged 44 percent during the f irst six months of 2014, and total U.S. coal consumption is expected to increase 3 percent this year, according to sources cited by the Wall Street Journal.

It was determined that the child had received deep second-degree burns on the buttocks, left shoulder and head six days prior to medical treatment, police said in a press release Tuesday. A police detective and investigator from the state Departm ent of Children and Family Services responded to the hospital and started an extensive investigation, which continued through the weekend and led to the Monday arrest, police said. According to arrest reports, Corbett told the nurse the baby had been burned by hot water b ecause (the fatherealize it was hot. The mother told the nurse she did not notice the burns until the next day and did not seek treatment at that time because she feared DCF would take her baby away. According to the report, the baby sustained two episodes of severe, deep second-degree b urns. The first episode of burn was noted to the left ear, left shoulder and the back of his head. . The second burn was noted and covered his entire b uttocks. A forensic exam revealed t he burns were inflicted and caused by hot liquid(s r eport stated. Severe medical neglect caused by the parents and secondary to a long delay in seeking medical care for extensive, painful and obvious inflicte d burns.

Save the Date!F iday, November 21, 20142 TALLAHASSEE In a 4-1 vote, the Florida PublicS ervice Commission approved Florida Power & Light Co.s (FPLy solar partnership pilot program and associated tarif f. The program is open to all customer classes residential, commercial and industrial providing ano pportunity to help expand Floridas solar production. FPLs voluntary solar pilot program lets FPL customers suppor t solar power if they choose to, but does not increase electric bills for those who don t, said PSC Chairman Art Graham. Pr ogram enr ollment begins in January, and FPL plans to begin solar pr oject constr uc tion at the same time. The first 300 kilowatts (kW two to five individual projects at 50 to 100 kW each, with fuel and emission savings estimated at $.05 per kilowatt hour. Renewable ener gy generated from the facilities will displace ener gy pr oduced by fossil fuels and ser ve all FPL cus tomers. Here is more information on FPLs approved solar pilot program tariff: Customers voluntarily sign up for the pr ogram. FPL will begin accepting voluntary customer contribu-t ions in May 2015. Participating customers will pay $9 per month to help advance solar power in Florida. Of fered on a month-tomonth basis, pr ogram participation can begin or end at any time. Non-participating customers will not subsidize the program. Pr ogram par ticipants will r eceive quar terly per formance reports, and a program website will track the energy generated and corresponding fuel and environmental benefits. The voluntar y solar pilot program will run for three years to assess par ticipation, r evenue and operating costs. Based on this information, the PSC will then determine whether to continue the pilot program. For additional information, visit www .floridapsc.com. In a recent development, a cargo of environmental and lifestyle concerns has arrived at the Port of Fernandina. A nd incensed city residents are plotting a response like a container ship charting itsc ourse on the open sea. They are mobilizing to attend upcoming meetings and solicit email c ampaigns, trying to make up for lost time. You see, the Port recently announced its long-term plans. It is periodically required to do so to receive state funding. However, some residents dont like the plans and feel they d id not receive ample notification. Many of the protestors reside in downt own Fernandina Beach, which would be directly impacted by i ncreased truck and rail traffic to and from the Port. They are also concerned about potential shipments of gas and coal for safety and environmental reasons. Port officials are trying t o douse any public relations fire. Theyve written responses on Internet blogs a nd tried to allay residents c oncerns in public meeti ngs. They say these are only projections and may n ever materialize. Fernandina Beach city commissioners are sort of caught in the middle. They dont control the Port, which is managed by an elected board of its own (theo fficial name is the Ocean, Highway & Port Authority). The Port commissioners are chos en countywide. However, city officials must sign off on the P orts plans. In a separate matter, Port officials are asking the city for a zoning change on two parcels they own in downtown. These par cels may be used for Por t storage. The Port is a unique operation. It was created in the mid-1980s to generate business activity as well as jobs in the community The P or t does not pay taxes, nor assess them. I n a long-standing agreement, the port p ays the city based upon shipping activity. It is sort of a courtesy, and not a requirement. Any impact on local roads and streets from additional Por t traf f ic will be shouldered by the city, county and state. Even if the Port pays the city $50,000 each year, the amount would har dly be enough to pave several pot h oles. E lsewhere, ports are enlarging and posit ioning themselves for anticipated increases in ship traffic from the widening of the Panama Canal. And much of this emanates fr om an increasingly global economy. However, most ports are not located near residential districts. For instance, Blount I sland is positioned in an industrial area, far outside the downtown of Jacksonville. I n the past, the proximity to downtown has not created problems for the Fernandina Port. Kinder Morgan, a major diversified corporation, is the operator of the Port. There are s ome environmental concerns stemming from Kinder Morgans involvement in trans-p orting coal at other ports and that it seeks to do that here. K inder Morgan has reportedly requested to change its permit for air quality, which could pertain to anticipated shipments of coal. This issue was apparently brought up before city commissioners. Other rumored plans include expanding Port operations to the old pogy plant (the port is mostly landlocked), and redirecting trucks to Sadler Road and 14th Street to handle increased traffic. P ort officials contend their activities gene rate business activity and ultimately cr eate j obs for the community. The Ports main mission is to engage in business activities that benefit the citizens of Nassau County and Florida. They also promote that they are efficient stewards of the public funds they receive. They claim that they provide a 700 percent r eturn to the community on each tax dollar t hey receive. W hile the Fernandina port is one of the s mallest in the state, it ser v es a niche within the shipping industry. Its naturally occurring deep waters have allowed it to cater to smaller container ships from around the world, transporting forest and steel products. An important Port Authority meeting will be held at 6 p.m. today at the county commis s ion chambers in Yulee. Residents are encoura ged to attend to learn about the Ports p lans and to pr o vide their input. Ultimately these types of public interac tions will decide if the Port remains shrouded in controversy, or opportunity.

He can be reached at 7 53-0236. thenicklas team2@m sn com As promised, below are some principles which, if followed, will help build trust and lower emotions when i nvolved in a win/win negotiation. The goal is to have both p arties leave the table satisfied that they have achieved their main objectives. 1. Understand you are in a negotiation. This is particularly true when dealing with colleagues or allies since the goals are usually the same, whether its increased sales or d efeat of an enemy. However, we may underestimate the colleagues concerns and forget to treat them as we do cust omers, whom we know we have to win o ver. For example, w hile Israeli l eaders a ppreciate all the financial help from the U.S., they seem to feel U.S. leaders dont fully appreciate the great dangers facing Israel from parties like Iran and Hamas. On the other h and, while we can be very c ritical of the par ticipants a d eal that seemed to be win/win was the one getting chemical weapons out of Syria. 2. Understand the goals and concerns of the otherp arty. Because we all have diff er ent values, we sometimes m isjudge the other person s or teams goals and concerns. Certainly with adversaries, but even with friends, we sometimes misread what is important. Some people relish power, some love challenges,s ome want to be liked, and w ith some it s always about t he money In addition, some have concerns they dont necessarily wish to publicize. For example, in recruiting an executive, a client of mine, w ho believed money solved all problems, didnt probe thec andidate sufficiently before making the offer. The candid ate turned it down because he wrongly believed that he could not get special schooling for his autistic child. 3. Be supportive of the o ther party. This usually means building a relationshipw hich requires spending time listening/tuning in to the o ther party. This may also mean doing things to enhance t he stature of other party. For e xample, taking time to go to the other partys office shows your support. While you may not believe U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder should have gone to Fer guson, Mo., you have to admit it helpedc alm the situation as the a ngr y citizenry felt supporte d. In addition, spending time with others gives you an opportunity to show off your talents and value. 4. Recognize the realities of the situation. If we push for things that the other party d oes not control, they may b ecome fear f ul. Pr obing con c erns when there is silence is important, as silence does not constitute agreement. In fact, when the other side does not ask questions, it usually means they either don t understand the point, or h ave concerns. So, when t her e is silence, rather than a ssume agr e ement, confir m understanding and pr obe concerns. 5. Be predictable and stand tough. This cr eates a dif fer e nt type of trust. Any time an adversary compromises, they may be concer ned that their b ase will r esist. A good exam p le is John Boehner and the T ea Party. I also faced this issue when convincing unionl eaders to compromise. The leader wanted to be certain t hat we would not back away from the agreement if there was resistance from their people (i.e., a walkout Therefore, laying down red l ines and making threats you may not keep if challenged,c reates major distrust, not just in the present but also in t he future. On the other hand, there are people who are only t rustworthy when the deal h eavily favors them. So another reason to spend time with them is to probe whether they are trustworthy and convince them that if they renege and take advantage, ther e will be serious consequences. 6 Realize you cannot deleg ate tr ust. When given an a ssignment, remember the other party has put trust in you. So be careful about delegating execution without making sure the other party understands the r easons. This was particularly true when ac lient asked me to take on a c oaching assignment. If I felt s omeone else should deliver the work, I made sure the client understood, it was for a good reason (i.e., better fit or skills) and not that I was too busy If as I have said before, y ou never have to deal with t he other par ty again, you can s ometimes get away with not building tr ust. But if it is important to have a strong relationship now and in the futur e, you had better ensur e that you spend the time and effort to build trust in both you and your or ganization.

MARY MAGUIRE News-Leader A significant innovation in roadway design is coming to Florida for the first time in N assau and Sarasota counties. It is called the Divergent D iamond Interchange (DDI and the Florida Department of T ransportation (FDOT would reduce congestion and increase safety. FDOT said it will use DDI in September 2016 when the state o verhauls the intersection of I95 and A1A in Yulee as part of t he $35 million widening project that starts this fall to increase t he number of traffic lanes on the state road to six from four. Anyone heading to work in Jacksonville will have their traffic times reduced because t heyll have an easier time getting on the highway, said F DOT Project Development Engineer Jim Knight. B ut there is a catch. The design requires drivers to briefly ride on the wrong side of the roadway. That sounds counterintuitive. Traffic engineers, including Knight, call it efficient. Its well documented that this is a good design, said Knight. It will increase the flow of traffic. Heres how it works. L ets say youre driving to I95 from Amelia Island and wantt o go south to Jacksonville. When you reach the interc hange, a traffic light will guide you over into the left lanes where you will motor along for about 300 feet until you can veer left onto the ramp for the interstates southbound lanes. There is no left turn signal b ecause there is no need for one, said Knight. And that means drivers coming from the other direction wont have to stop and wait for cars to turn, said Knight. Vehicles coming from the opposite direction will be guided to veer right. Think of it like s teps in a dance. When you go left, the person across from you g oes right. What happens to drivers that want to pass through the interchange without getting on the highway? Those drivers will need to drive on the wrong side as w ell, but theyll be directed back onto the right side of the roadw ay once they clear the inters ection. I t is difficult to visualize and w atching a video helps. Many a re posted online at www.youtube.com. And the state has information at www.10and95.com. Knight, who has been with the department for 23 years, said in an interview last week that DDI is very efficient when a high percentage of traff ic is getting on or off the interchange than passing through it. He said thats whats happening in Nassau County. Jacksonville is a fairly large commute and were seeing significant traffic, said Knight. Twice as many people were g etting on the highway during the morning rush than passing through. FDOT studied the numbers. Here are projections for 2015: From 7-9 a.m., the departm ent estimates that 1,100 vehic les will travel west on A1A and about 600 of them will get on s outhbound I-95. The rest will pass through the interchange. Those numbers are up significantly from the 2007 traffic study, said Knight. Our through volume back then was about 400 vehicles to 800 turning (onto the highway), said Knight. H e said the DDI has substantially reduced congestion at interchanges in other states. Missouri got the first DDI in 2009 and has since added more. The Federal Department of Transportation website says that 34 states have at least one DDI, including Georgia. K night said the design was considered for use in Duval, Clay and St. Johns counties, but transportation officials decided to put it here first. Are we guinea pigs working o ut the kinks in the system? No, not at all, said Knight. e looked at conditions and determined that where I-95 meets SR 200 is the best use so w e want to start there. Documents on the FDOT w ebsite said because the design is relatively new, specific d esign criteria has not been completely developed. Documents also said that driver expectation is compromised with the counterintuitive direction of travel. Thats why theyre suggesti ng the crossover junctions to displace movement should be a pproximately 300 feet. The FDOT report said there are eight DDIs under consideration around the state, including Sarasota County where a DDI design is planned for I-75 and University Parkway. W ho gets the first DDI, Nassau or Sarasota, depends on t he release of funding and construction timing, say FDOT officials. Knight said DDIs are about the same to build as a traditional diamond interchange, like the one that is in place now at SR 2 00, but over the long term they save money because the design c an handle growing traffic d emands for a longer period of t ime, said Knight. Knight revealed the plan in a formal presentation earlier this month at a North Florida T ransportation Planning Organization meeting. H e said he also met in July with local state officials includi ng Rep. Janet Adkins and Sen. Aaron Bean. He said there are plans to meet with local stakeholders, but to date he has not presented the plan to local leaders, including the county commiss ion or its management. This project is scheduled a nd funded, said Knight. But well have public meetings before any decision is final. Nassau County Public Works Director Scott Herring, who is on the North Florida TPOs technical advisory comm ittee, said he attended the Aug. 14 meeting and saw K nights presentation. What does he think of the Divergent Diamond Interchange? I like this a lot. It is going to simplify things and make it much easier, said Herring. If I have any concern its driving on the wrong side of the road. B ut I think it will work out just f ine. email@example.com CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 5A W EDNESDAY S EPTEMBER 10, 2014 BUSINESS News-Leader p rojects like our beaches, our n eighborhoods and city assets.

Wed eserve better P oynter served as city comm issioner from 2009-12. He was t he only commissioner to oppose the pr oposed FY 201213 city budget that called for both higher taxes (a 15 percent increase, the highest in 10 years) and higher franchise fees. Theres a differenceb etween investing in our city a nd continuing to subsidize inef f icient and outdated city gov ernment operations. And just saying no is not being r espon sible, he said. During Poynters tenure as commissioner plans and financing were put in motion for the M ain Beach boardwalk, prof essional management of the m arina and golf course and an upgraded Front Street and a new river fr o nt. Some of these pr ojects ar e now adding value to our island while others are still three years later issues for discus-s ion, Poynter said. Its time f or action on long-standing i ssues like the water f ront. Weve lost our momentum. Its time for the city to move ahead with infrastr ucture improvements that will encourage mor e public/private investment in all areas of the city, he said. Public/private par tnerships b uilt during Poynters tenure o n the commission include the p ublic library expansion, the Humane Society building and the downtown depot renovation. Its time to be good stewards of the taxpayers money. ... We deserve better Poynter applies the same l eadership principals to running t he city as he does to his succ essful businesses. Good gov er n ment doesn t have to be expensive, if you look for creative ways to manage, he said. The city commission and the city manager must work together to manage change that isi nevitable.

Tim and Theresa have been married over 30 years and have four children: Tara, Bryan, Tim and S ean, all of whom attended F ernandina Beach public s chools. T i m and his family privately and publicly support many local nonprofit organizations. While a commissioner, Tim helped the Council on Aging get a matching grant for its new trans p ortation building and made s ure other local nonprofit organi zations wer e fairly funded with city funds. Investing in nonpr ofits makes Fernandina a safer and healthier place to live and visit, Poynter said. Their impact is undeniable and our city s sup port is necessary. For example, t he Council on Aging could h ave leveraged $10,000 in city funding to pur c hase a $90,000 passenger van last year. Unfortunately, that didnt happen because the commission voted to give the Council on Aging only $5,000 last year and that was only after much com-m unity outrage over the altern ative, which was not giving anything at all. ...

But o fficials say there isnt enough money to fund it a ll. TPO officials put the numb er of needed projects at almost 700 and their collective price tag at $27 billion. They also put the projected revenue to pay for the projects at less than $6 b illion. TPO officials have drafted a cost feasible plan and now they are calling for the public to help make funding decisions.

T he local meeting will be held at the American Beach Community Center, 1600 Julia S t., on the south end of Amelia Island on Thursday, Sept. 18 f rom 5-7 p.m. Officials say this is the l ast round of public meetings before the Path Forward 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan is adopted in November. firstname.lastname@example.org Nassau meeting on transportation plan A NGELA DAUGHTRY News-Leader At the first of two public hearings, the new rollback millage rate for fiscal 2014-15 was announced by city comm issioners at a special meeting Sept. 3. T he new rollback rate is 6.1021 mills per $1,000 of a ssessed property value, with a voter debt millage rate of 0.2642 for a total of 6.3663 for Fernandina Beach residents. L ast fiscal year, the millage rate per $1,000 of assessedp roperty value was 6.2844, with a voter debt millage rate of 0 .2236 for a total of 6.5080. According to numbers provided by the city, the new rate will lower the yearly property tax of a $100,000 house by about $14, if the homes taxable value stays the same. I f the homes taxable value increases to $103,000, the year-l y property tax will increase about $5. T his will be the first time in six years that the millage rollback rate has been lower than t he year before. The rollback rate is an adjustment to prope rty taxes that is meant to bring in the same amount of revenues t o city coffers as the year before. A second public hearing of the property millage rate is scheduled for Sept. 16 at 5:05 p.m. at City Hall, 204 Ash St., Fernandina Beach. email@example.com City adopts ollback rate NOTICE OFINTENTION TO CONSIDER ENACTMENTOFORDINANCENassau County proposes to amend the Nassau County Land Development Code by adopting the following Ordinance:AN ORDINANCE OF THE BOARD OF COUNTYCOMMISSIONERS OF NASSAU COUNTY, FLORIDAAMENDING THE CODE OF ORDINANCES BYAMENDING ARTICLE 35 O F THE LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE TO PROHIBIT CERTAIN TYPES OF SIGNAGE ALLOWABLE ON LANDS LOCATED IN THE SR 200/A1AACCESS MANAGEMENT OVERLAYDISTRICT; PROVIDING FOR DEFINITIONS; PROVIDING FOR FINDINGS; PROVIDING FOR SEVERABILITY; PROVIDING FOR CODIFICATION; AND PROVIDING AN EFFECTIVE DATE.NOTICE IS HEREBYGIVEN that the Planning and Zoning Board of Nassau County will conduct a public hearing on Tuesday, September 16, 2014 at 7:00 PM regarding the proposed ordinance.

P P o o r r t t e e x x p p a a n n s s i i o o n n T he citizens of Fernandina Beach and Yulee need to decide what kind of future they desire for N assau County, particularly Amelia Island. The first thing you see cr o ssing I-95 into Florida are the paper mills at Fernandina. Nassau County is the gateway to Florida and should be representative of the whole state. (What is the future of our island? on Sept. 3) is so true. You need to decide the direction the county is taking. Do youw ant families and vacationers or polluting factor ies? Where do you want your children to work? S ur e these polluters put food on the table and pay taxes, but I heard the same story about cigarette factories in North Carolina. At some point you need to take a stand and decide the futur e of the county and your children. Did you just fall off the turnip truck? Dont you think Fernandina was chosen because the small population would be as mall voice in the battle against coal pollution of t he air and water? A beautiful r e sor t hotel and large marina full of yachts would be a wonderful greeting viewed from I-95 coming into Florida. One end of the island has The Ritz and the Omni, while the other end is turning into West Virginia. Before any other industry ideas are developed by the city, I would suggest you visit the areas that alreadyh ave these companies. Looks like Kingston, Ga., h as alr eady beat you to the idea of attracting v acationers with the r e sort they have planned. And they are trying for a year-round group with a convention center If you don t choose the busi ness you want, it will choose you, and pr obably not what you desir e. By the way what killed all the fish at Dee Dee Bar tell Park last Wednesday? The boat ramp was c over ed and the shoreline was stacked with dead f ish. This cannot be a nor mal event. Yvonne DiAmico Fernandina Beach As you already know, the local Port Authority is in the process of some very big changes. While they dont really brag about it, they have some opportunities coming for our little town. They have r ecently made thr ee impor tant public moves: 1. Rezoning the land in the Historic District 2. Revealing a new master plan that takes the Por t in a much busier direction 3. Repurposing the facility to handle 500,000 tons of coal annually. I have been told that all this is none of Fernandinas business, and that we cant do anything about this. I beg to differ. The city of Fer nandina has the obligation to its citizens to request a review by the state of the coal transfer application. Being right in the downtown area, this will likely affect the residents and businesses here. Shouldnt the city officials at least ask what is going on here? The traffic being created by the huge increase in business anticipated via the master plan is cer tainly something the city should restrict. At a rate of several hundr ed new truck trips per day, Id think this is indeed Fernandinas business. Rezoning part of the Historic District for Port use is a first. This has not been done since the Port opened in the s. The Port understands that they can grow by moving ancillary uses off their industrial property such as offices and parking. While these uses can be located elsewher e, they are making a concerted effort to break through the Historic District for their expansion. I ask that the city commission please help protect that which we cant replace: Our quality o f life, roads, Historic District and neighborh oods. S omethings coming, and it looks ominous. Chuck Hall Fer n andina Beach In his Viewpoint article (Sept. 6 a series of articles, Richard Bruce, OHPA commissioner, introduced the basic facts regardingy our Port Authority and how it affects you. We w elcome his ef fort to familiarize the public with t he Port Authority, but are concerned about the discrepancies between the statements in this article and the intent demonstrated in the OHP A master plan update. Mr. Bruce emphasizes that the intent of OHPA is to benefit the community He quotes the pur pose from the charter as being to benefit the citi zens of Nassau County and Florida and further s tates that the OHPA is a publicly owned busin ess (yourstunities and serious obligations to benefit all 75,000 of us in our county and the 1.5 million citizens in Nor t heast Florida. Incr easing truck traffic fourfold and rail traffic substantially through the Historic District, as outlined in the master plan update, is clearly not in the interest of the citizens of Amelia Island. This will have a detrimental effect on tourism, the basis of our economy, and the quality of life for res-i dents. Also, OHPA seems interested in any business that is willing to come to our Por t This includes fossil fuel products. Transporting fossil fuels via train or truck through the Historic District and trans-loading and storing them on the edge of the Historic District are clearly not in the interest of the community. It will introduce a dramatic increase in pollution (air, soil, water and noise) that will make Fernandina Beach unlivable. It will also intr oduce a risk level that is unacceptable for any community. Leaks and explosions are common in areas where fossil fuels are piped, trans-loaded and stored. An example of our Ports expansion related to fossil fuels is cur r ently in pr ocess. OHP As contractor Kinder Morgan is on the verge of obtaining an air constr uction per mit to repurpose their operation to transport coal here. This would entail hauling coal through the Historic District via train and truck and trans-loading it at the Port. Other similar operations have r uined the com munities where they are located. This is not in the interest of our community. The OHP A master plan update also expr ess es interest in expanding its facility to accommodate cr uise ships. The cruise industry also has a bad reputation for pollution and spoiling small towns. Mr. Bruce characterizes the creation of jobs as their ultimate objective. However the mas ter plan update only claims to create about 22 jobs, and many more will be lost as the impact of their expansion diminishes tourism and causes retirees to relocate. A lack of substantial net increase in n umber of jobs is not job creation, but simply d estabilization of the community by shifting jobs f rom one area to an unrelated area. We are in favor of a port that functions well and that can maintain its r e cent higher levels of activ ity However we ar e not interested in this at any cost. Margaret Kirkland Amelia Island F unny how thr ough all the recent Planning A dvisory Board meetings regarding expansion of the Port they forgot to mention that Kinder Mor g an is asking the Florida Depar t ment of Envir onmental Pr o tection to revise its air quality permit because they now want to annually transpor t 500,000 tons of bulk coal thr ough our community. Is this an oversight, an indiscretion, a misunderstanding, a basic hoodwinking, outr ight lying or quiet omission? I am confused. K inder Morgans core business is moving fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas so why should this surprise me? W e ll, even the city didn t even know about the request to change the air quality permit until a concerned citizen br ought it to their attention last week. By the time the city did know of the application however there was less than a week left within the FDEP comment period. P ort Commissioner Richard Bruce said in his editorial viewpoint (Sept. 6t is a publicly owned business (ours obligations to benefit all 75,000 of us in our county.... In reality, the Port has turned complete control of its operation over to Kinder Morgan (Nassau Terminals LLC), which cares about one thing and thats Kinder Morgan not the welfare of the citizens of Fernandina Beach and Nassau County. The FDEP air quality per mit (0890440-001AC) that Kinder Morgan has applied for says that they want to off-load and transport 500,000 tons of coal through our community without any restrictions on their hours of operation, i.e., 24 hours a day/365 days a year Or as they expr ess it in the application: hours/year (8784 in any Leap Y ear). In the application they describe their operation as trans-loading coal from vessels to hoppers and then transferring to trucks for offsite delivery; they also will trans-load coal via clamshell to bar ges for temporar y storage. The coal will then be transferred from the barge via clamshell to the hoppers and then to trucks for of fsite deliver y . Kinder Morgan has grown into one of the lar gest bulk port operators in the country. They already operate coal export facilities in Virginia, South Carolina and Louisiana. If you do research, they have a miserable track record and their existing coal expor t operations ar e well known for blighting neighborhoods and fouling rivers. Welcome to the future. Coal trains and trucks are known to release coal dust into the air that can degrade air qualit y further and expose the community to dust i nhalation. Health ef fects of coal dust exposure i nclude: increased asthma, wheezing and cough in children and persons with respiratory problems; plus a possible wide range of health pr o b lems associated with exposur e to heavy metals which are designated as hazardous air pollutants including lead, selenium and mercury. This is not a clean industry, but not to worry our island already supports six pulmonary spec ialists because of the par ticulate matter already f loating in the air. So there will be a place to turn to if respiratory problems become more frequent than they alr e ady ar e Air quality is a lar ge concer n for our community, but so is water quality. The Ports master plan alludes to utilizing storage at the pogy plant. Whether coal is kept on barges in the river ors tored there, any release of coal residue could be d evastating for the Egans Creek watershed. Coal d ust and coal dust pollutants could affect the whole tidal area from Tiger and Little Tiger islands to the marsh and thr o ugh the gates under Atlantic into the Gr eenway, devastating all the natural resources and wildlife we all cherish so much in this community Here is my question: Do the citizens of Fernandina and Nassau County have a strength of vision that springs from a deep commitment toa healthy environment and natural beauty of Amelia Island, or a lack of cohesiveness that will allow deep-pocketed corporate inter e sts to risk our communitys health and property values as they profit from our towns environmental decline? The answer should be easy: We as a community must hold fast to the tenets that best showcase the spirit and beauty of Fernandina/Amelia Island and therefore reject any plan that poses such environmental dangers. As many have said before, this is not just a local Fer nandina Beach city issue. Take action by contacting city commissioners and ask that they request an FDEP Administrative Hearing on behalf of the citizens of Fernandina Beach and the Historic District. This must be done immediately for the city to have a stake in this decision! There is a designated point person at FDEP, Richard Simpson.

The once quiet issue has ignited a firestorm of protest, worry, even fear within a p opulation that had gotten used to, but not fully accepted, a level of industrial activity so incongruous with our towns quality of life goals that its saddening to even think about it. Numbers can be comforting Over 90 percent of our young people graduate high school these days or numbers can be scary Port expansion will increase truck traffic on Eighth Street by 700 trucks per day, and there are a l ot of scary numbers being thrown around out there. But Ive always been skeptical of numbers. You can prove anything with numbers; you can comfort anybody with numbers and you can scare anybody with numbers. Personally, when considering serious issues like port expansion, I look away from the numbers, from balance and spread sheets, from numbers meant to s hock and from numbers meant to soothe, I look away and take a more human approach whats the history of the issue? How do my initial feelings, negative or positive, fit with how I see the future? Its a vision thing, first and last, beginning to end its a vision thing. For me, the issue of port expansion starts with a premise thats inviolate: any attempt to expand the Port of Fernandina has to be, must b e, met with opposition from any and all elected or appointed bodies involved in the decision-making process. Just say no, resoundingly, emphatically and unanimously; just say no. See, for me the issue of port expansion is p ersonal: In the interest of full disclosure, Kasey a nd I live downtown, not far from the Port and the intermittent beep, beep, beeping of the P orts heavy equipment is irritating. But its worse at night and our window-unit air conditioner is, thankfully, purposely overpowering. The noise factor somewhat conquered, the o nly other negative impacts to our living situation are the trucks on Eighth Street and the extension of a once limited industrial panorama along the waterfront. I was a city commissioner when the Port project was initially presented for a pproval. I remember, distinctly, the Ocean, Highway and Port Authoritys representative saying this: The Port of Fernandina will only be postage stamp sized, the real impact and growth will take place at the Lofton Creek site. Comforted, and convinced of the minimal impact, the commission approved the Port Authoritys plan. Well, the Port of F ernandina never was postage stamp sized and it never was a secondary site. Its footprint immediately exploded like a zinnia in spring and its being the Port Authoritys primary site has never been in question. After seeking permission to expand into the historic district in the late s, the Port promised no future similar expansion requests. The commission, to protect the hist oric district, passed a resolution prohibiting the Port from expanding further south. The implication: the ports as big as its going to get. The reality: its not as big as we want it to get. H eres the thing: the Ports required to u pdate its master plan every so often; every f ive years, 10 years, I dont know, Ive forgotten, and master plans are wish lists that everyt hings added to handling, storing and shipping coal, more trucks per day, new warehouses, etc. I get that. But master plans have this annoying way of becoming reality, unless opposed and rejected. Once master plans are approved, thats it; its over. Ten years from n ow if the Port wants to do this or that and the community is opposed, sorry, this or that was approved when the master plan was approved in 2014. Bottom line for the committees, agencies and commissions that have to approve the Ports master plan port expansion: is this what we want for our community? Do we really want further industrial expansion along the w aterfront? Does industrial expansion in an area that prides itself on historic preservation work? Much of downtown is residential, populated by homeowners who value quiet enjoyment of property, how do their goals and rights mesh with industrial expansion? If increased truck traffic is an inevitable byproduct of port expansion, can our infrastructure really handle it? I ts a vision thing. Ive written, many times, about the difference between place and town. Some people want our community to be a place; in my mind a place is to be used and exploited and some people see our community in purely economic terms. Others see us as a town; a community where essentials are valued, protected and preserved green space, public buildings, public access to public p laces, parks, etc. For me, industrial expansion along the waterfront port expansion violates our concept of town and continues the process of making us a place. Decision-makers I ask y ou, once again, to keep our community a town; vote no, over and over again, on indust rial expansion along our waterfront vote no, over and over again on port expansion.

DEBATE AND T ACKLE R on Sapp THE PAST: Befor e the Fr ench, befor e the Spanish, there was the harbor. It is the finest natural harbor south of the Chesapeake Bay inV ir ginia. Native Americans fished its waters and har vested oysters from its shallows. Remnants of their oyster shell middens are still visible at various locations around our community. The French came to visit, and then the Spanish came to stay. They constr ucted For t San Carlos and the T own of Fernandina. It is reported to be the last Spanish town platted in the wester n hemi spher e. They did not come because of our white, sandy beaches. They came because of the harbor. THE PRESENT : Today this harbor is called the Port of Fernandina. It is governed by the Ocean Highway and Por t Authority of Nassau County (OHPA) and its property is held in that name. The OHP A is a Special District of the state of Florida. It is not a branch of Nassau County government, nor the city of Fernandina Beach. It belongs to the citizens, and both its boundaries and its authorities ar e described in a charter issued by the state of Florida thr ough an act of the legislatur e. It is your Por t and its boundaries of operation ar e not limited to the city of Fernandina Beach, or even Nassau County. They extend into Duval and Baker counties in Florida, and into the state of Georgia. Its operations are not limited to a maritime port. Instead, they include a wide range of economic endeavors, from recreation to heavy industry to transpor tation. Y our Port is one of the 15 deep-water ports named in Florida Statute 311.09. Your Port moved 11,628 tons of freight in the month of July 2014. The car go consisted of containers, kraft liner board for boxes, lumber and miscellaneous cargo. There were 5 vessels calls on the por t in August. THE FUTURE: OHP A is r equired, as a matter of law, to plan for its futur e. This law is Florida Statute 311.14 and the plan is called a Port Master Plan or strategic plan. There are five areas in the plan which ar e specifically described at FS. 311.14(2eas has r equir ements, which may include components or studies. Ther e ar e other laws which also dictate pieces of the plan. The OHP A adopted its most recent plan in June 2014. It replaces a previous plan which, in turn, replaced an earlier plan. Because of our charter, our planning extends beyond the maritime port located in Fer nandina Beach. Because of the law our planning looks at the maritime port as part of a transpor tation system. As a matter of law (FS. 311.14(1 must be consistent with the goals of the Florida Transportation Plan. It must identify 510and 20-year needs for the seapor t system, including seaport, road and rail projects that are needed to ensure the success of the transpor tation system as a whole, in suppor ting the economic development goals of the state of Florida.

This annual event focuses on the dangers of driving, especially around the Labor Day holiday weekend, and the tragic loss of life that occurs in traffic crashes. During 2013, 34 people lost their life inF lorida during Labor Day weekend with almost 30 percent of those alcohol-related. L aw enforcement officers in both states cracked down on drunk driving over the holid ay weekend with special patrols and safety checks resulting in DUI arrests. HANDS ACROSS THE BORDER Sheriff produces series of crime prevention videos M ARY MAGUIRE News-Leader The Nassau County Sheriffs Office will produce a new series of crime prevention videos to post on the departments website at www.nassauso.com. T he safety messages will feature a variety of subjects, including bullying, domestic violence, identity theft, shoplifting and illegal drug use. The videos also will be available to the school districts resource officers to show to local students. T he program was announced at the recent county commission meeting when the sheriff asked the board to spend $12,000 from the Crime Prevention Trust Fund for production. The request is required by state statute. The budget office said the f und holds $225,000. The money is collected through court fees, including $50 imp osed on felony convictions and $20 for other criminal o ffenses. Assistant County Manager a nd Office of Management and Budget Director Shanea Jones said the Crime Prevention Trust Fund collects about $40,000 annually and that m oney must be spent on crime prevention programs. A ccording to support documents from the meeting, the s heriffs office will hire Don Flynn Pictures, Inc. in Jacksonville to produce the videos. In an email last week, Sheriff Bill Leeper said the prod uction schedule is still being developed and that all of the v ideo will be taken in Nassau County. T his sheriff has previously produced a series of public service announcements (PSAs are posted online. The videos put the spotlight o n a variety of subjects, including the departments agricult ure and marine unit, crime scene evidence, motorcycle u nit and Shop with Cops program. In an email last week, Leeper said, Go to our website at www.nassauso.com and click o n NCSO-TV and you will see (them T here is also a singing presentation from the sheriffs staff a nd local children titled Safety Tips for Christmas. The tips seem appropriate in any season and include: wear your seatbelt, lock your d oor, check your credit card bill, designate a driver, say no t o drugs, always be alert, protect your identity, hide your v aluables, dont text while driving, carry minimal cash, park under lighting and have a visible house number. Watch for utility bill scams TALLAHASSEE Attorney General Pam Bondi advises F loridians to be wary of utility b ill scams. In recent utility s cams, someone calls and c laims to be a representative of a utility company and tells the c ustomer that their utility bill is overdue and payment must be received or services will be shut off immediately. Scammers use devices that alter the caller ID to look like a utilityc ustomer service number. Payments are requested in ways, such as wiring the m oney, prepaid cards or gift c ards. Targets include restaur ants and other businesses that c ant afford to have their utilit y services abruptly shut off; h owever, individual consumers are just as likely to be targeted. Consumers can protect themselves from utility scams by following these tips: Never provide personal i nformation over the phone or through email; If contacted by a suspic ious person claiming to be the c ustomers utility company, the c ustomer should contact his o r her utility company and notif y them of the recent commun ications and check the billing status of their account; and Report any suspicious activity to Attorney General Pam Bondis Fraud Hotline by calling 1-866-966-7226 or by vis-i ting MyFloridaLegal.com.

T T o o d d d d l l e e r r f f o o u u n n d d w w a a n n d d e e r r i i n n g g A 24-year-old father was a rrested for child neglect Aug. 29 after his 21-month-old son w as found wandering by himself naked in a Fernandina B each subdivision, according to a police report. A man in the Flora Parke neighborhood called police around 10:30 a.m. Aug. 29 to say he found a child standing on the side of the road with two dogs. T he child was naked a nd exposed to the sunl ight, and also had a severe rash on his buttocks, the man told police. The temperature was reporte dly 91 degrees. Child Protective Services w as called immediately and a supervisor took custody of the c hild. Using information from the dogs tags, police found the child s pr o bable residence and attempted to make contact with his guardians, according to ther epor t, by banging loudly on t he door W hen no one answered, offic ers entered the house through an open side door, announcing themselves loudly several times, the r eport stated. Once at the top of the stairs, police found Kyle Frazier Higginbotham asleep in a bed r oom; but Higginbotham r eporte dly did not wake until police w ere in the bedroom announcing themselves. H igginbotham was reportedly slow in understanding why police were there and told them he believed his son was in the house, according to the report. A fter being read his rights, Higginbotham told police he w as at a friends house with his son until 2:30 a.m. and returned h ome around 5 a.m. Police determined through a horizontal gaze nystagmus sobriety test that studies the eyes that Higginbotham was i ntoxicated, the report stated. The Child Protective Servic es official informed police there was already an investigat ion in reference to inadequate supervision for the child, the report stated. Urinalysis showed Higginbotham tested positive for mari juana, benzodiazepines, cocaine, oxycodone, opiates and m ethadone, the report stated. Police determined the child h ad walked up to half a mile from his residence in order to make his way to the area where he was eventually found by the neighbor. According to the report, it was an hour from the time the child was found until police were able to locate and question Higginbotham. Higginbotham was arrested for child neglect without great h arm and transported to Nassau County Jail, where he w as being held on $50,002 bond. C C r r u u e e l l t t y y t t o o h h o o r r s s e e s s A Hilliard man was arrested for aggravated animal cruelty after the horses in his care weref ound to be in extremely poor health, resulting in the euthan ization of one horse, according to a police report. P olice were called to 2609 Lott Road, Hilliard, due to two complaints that horses on the pr oper t y were in poor health. A Nassau County Animal Control investigator told police he found six horses on the pr op e r ty at various levels of emaci a tion, according to the report. S everal horses appeared to have infected wounds, but one horse had a severe injury to itsr ear legs and swelling of its hoof. The horses hooves also appeared misshapen, as if they had not been tended to in a ver y l ong time, and the animal was r eportedly in visible pain b ecause it kept lying down and could not put weigh on its left l eg, the report stated. The resident of the property, Joseph Mark Kraai, 43, told police he assumed responsibility for the horses after his mothe r moved to Jacksonville 10 months ago. He said he had an a ccount set up with a local feed store and fed the horses twice d aily. He also noted the horses had not been de-wormed in six to nine months, police said. A veterinarian was called to the property and confirmed the i njured horse was in extreme pain and, due to Kraais failure t o take action, would have to be euthanized, the report stated. S he also noted the horses could be emaciated due to not being de-wormed every six weeks. Kraais mother arrived and told police she had left the anim als in her sons care and agreed to sign over the remaini ng horses to Animal Control. The veterinarian told police the o ther horses could be rehabilitated with proper medical treatment. Because Kraais failure to take action resulted in cruel, excessive and repeated inflicted pain or suffering to the horses, he was arrested for aggravated animal cruelty.

Juniper Springs Run is a 7mile canoe trail in Ocala N ational Forest, beginning at the spring and ending at theo nly road to cross this wilderness area about three or four p addling hours later. And if you need help along the way, forget it. No cell phone connections, no roads, no way for anything other than a canoe t o get through. The day we went there were no otherc anoes in sight or hearing during our entire outing. W e had the river and the wildlife all to ourselves. Wonderful! Bucko and I got to the springs around 10 one Friday m orning. Already the temperature was in the 90s but no p roblem here. The water is a constant 72 degrees originati ng from the springs and the heavily shaded canopy provides a welcome relief from the usual Florida heat. I ts a bit of a hassle getting your canoe to the water from the rental concession, though, so be forewarned. By the time we filled out numer-o us forms, got rid of all our disposables like water bott les that we had to empty into purchased non-disposable containers, and put our camera and keys in only one Ziplock bag per canoe, then hoisted our canoe onto a cart to drag it a long distance to the p ut-in point, then drag t he cart back again to the start, it took us 45 minutes to finally get on the water. But as soon as we g ot going, all inconveniences were forgotten. The start of the trail is very shallow and sandy, barely passable, but as we continued downstream the current picked up and soon we were using all our canoeing skills t o keep from crashing into the banks on every turn, or tipping over on many logs near the surface. Here and there large logs crossed the stream, and the only way to get by was to hunker down in the canoe and pass under them. All of these obstacles made the trip a rare Be Here Now experience with no time to worry about the future or think about the past. Instead it was all Pull l eft! Pull right! Fend off! D efinitely not a trip for beginn ers. As we made our way downstream we came close to large basking turtles who did not even blink as we passed by within touching distance of them. They knew their river, and knew where the currents would take the canoers just a regular p art of their life. The water was so clear we could watch s chools of fish go by and others staking out their nests and territories on sandy patches of the bottom. Along the way we spotted pileated woodpeckers, a large blue heron and no alligators, although most people see them here too. B ut we did see otters! Just as we got into an open prairie area of the stream and rounded a bend, right next to us, maybe eight feet away, two large river otters were feeding in a pond. In the front of the canoe I saw them first, stopped paddling and scramb led to get my camera out of the Ziplock bag. That was a mistake. In my few seconds of inattention Bucko in the back was swept into a bramble bush. We spent the next few minutes trying to extricate him from the thorns without tipping over, and, of course the otters were long gone by the time we looked for them again. Im sure they are chuckling about this still. O n the final stretch of the r un, Buckos shirt was bloodi ed from the thorns, I was scratching insect bites and we were both getting tired. Black storm clouds were gathering and we heard distant thunder. By now the take-out point couldnt be c lose enough for us. We were d one. B ut there it was, the bridge and the take-out point! In short order we were out of the canoe and in the air-conditioned shuttle van heading back to our car. And then the appr oaching stor m hit us full o n, lightning bolts right next t o us, rain in sheets causing t he van to hydr o plane over the r o ad. W e wer e safe and sound, but 10 other canoes, poor souls, were still on the water behind us! Check out Juniper Spring Run online and see it your self. Its a great Florida exper ience.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK OUTDOORS/ TIDES WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER10, 2014NEWS-LEADER/ FERNANDINABEACH, FL ORIDA Yu lee Middle School beat Camden County's eighth-grade team 44-12 Sept. 2. Maurice Moore had 129 yards rushing with three touchdowns. Antwuan Alexander had 77 yards and a score. Chase Crider rushed for 75 yards and a TD. Quarterback Jaxon Crosby also scored a TDon the ground. The YMSHornets had more than 300 r ushing yards on the night. Linebacker Jordan Richo and defensive ends Bryson Smith and Colin Williams led the defense. "For our first game the boys played better than I expected," Shaun Forbes said. "We were firing on all cylinders of the game. The offensive line was opening up holes all night long for our backs. The defense did a great job pursing to the ball." Y ulee hosted Callahan Tuesday. BETH JONESNe w s-LeaderThe Hornets are 2-0 with Friday's 53-12 r out of visiting Potter's House. "It was kind of a sloppy game, way too many penalties,"said Bobby Ramsay, head football coach at Yulee High School. "That part was disappointing. I am really happy though with a lot of the player development. I think our guys, from a skill standpoint, are coming around. The coaching staff has really done a good job of getting players in position to make plays. "I think this was the first time since 2012 we had over 400 yards and, defensively, we forced turnovers, which is always a focus of ours." Jamari Peacock had 110 of those yards on 16 carries. He also scored a touchdown for the Hornets. Kris Maxie had 10 carries for 97 yards and a TD. Ironne Coley had 58 yards on four touches with a score. Brody Vinson and Chauncey Hamilton also scored on the night. A.J. Damiano had a pair of interceptions and Chris Roberts and Kenny Gammons had two quarterbacks sacks apiece to lead the defense. The Hornets have a bye week before entering district play Sept. 19 at Westside, formerly Forrest High School. "The key for us this week is twofold," Ramsay said. "One, we need to begin to prepare for Westside. They have played some good teams really close and have excellent athletes in the front seven and at quarterback and running back. We need to take advantage of the extra week. "Second, we need to get as healthy as we can; we have yet to go into a game with our whole team suited out." FOOT B ALL SO C CER SATURDAYHornets roll to 2-0, beat Potters House 53-12 Nease Panthers r ally, edge PiratesBETH JONESNe w s-LeaderThe Pirates lost a nail-biter Friday night at Nease. After leading 12-0, the host Panthers rallied to beat the visitors 14-12. "I'm very proud of our effort Friday night," said Travis Hodge, head coach at Fernandina Beach High School. "I thought the kids r esponded very well from the Yulee game. We must focus on ourselves and getting better, not on the opposing team. Regardless of who we play, we have to get better every week or we're gonna come up short. "Disappointed we lost but very proud of our effort and really feel that we found our identity. Defensively really a bunch of guys had great games. Offensively we had right at 300 yards of offense; just too many mistakes but we'll fix those things." Brett Evans scored on a 12-yard run in the second quarter. With a bad snap on the pointafter, the Pirates led 6-0. "The defense played strong through the first half,"Hodge said. "On offense we missed a lot of scoring opportunities." The Pirates carried the 6-0 lead into the lockerroom at halftime. In the third quarter, Tyreke Hubbard broke a 54-yard run to put the Pirates in Nease territory again. Spencer Cutajar scored on a 24-yard run. The Pirates went for two but the attempt failed. Nease scored early in the fourth and with four minutes left to move ahead 14-12. The Pirates (0-2) host Hilliard Friday in the home opener. "Hilliard is always a tough game for us," Hodge said. "Coach Allison has really done a great job there since he took over. Their quarterback is a very good football player." Kickoff is at 7 p.m. at Pirate Field.

Upward Basketball and Cheerleading is not only fun for children but a great fit for families. The programs conveniently fit into a familys busy schedule with no travel teams and just a one-hour practice and one-hour game each week. Coaches use practices and games to teach and build basketball skills while making sure the kids have fun. Kids will also learn teamwork and build self-esteem in the basketball leagues and kids basketball camps, making for a positive sports experience. Cheerleading is becoming more popular throughout North America and the Upward cheerleading programs strive to teach the basics in a fun environment. This foundation in cheerleading will help kids cheer successfully at the next level. Each coach will make fun a priority as they teach kids cheerleading skills to each child on the squad and, since there are no tryouts, every child will have the chance to bring the crowd to their feet. Busy families can even take part in the cheerleading programs because games and practices are one hour each per week. Deadline for registration is Nov. 22. This year, basketball shorts and cheerleading mock turtlenecks are included at no additional cost. Early registration (before Oct. 30) is $75. After Oct. 30, the fee is $90.

Male players age 16 TITLE BOUTChris Vendola, 43, of Fernandina Beach captured the World Boxing Federation heavyweight title in August in Winston-Salem, N.C. V endola defeated Andrae Carthern, 34, of California, a two-time state Golden Glove champion with 25 professional fights under his belt, including two televised fights. "He's been eight and 10 rounds with two of the top 10 fighters in the world," Vendola said. Originally scheduled for November, V endola kept up his routine after three fights earlier this year. "Ihad a feeling they were going to pull a surprise,"he said. "I fought three times in the last 90 days. I stayed in the gym." V endola won the first three fights of this year by first-round knockout. "Iwas in the gym the next day (after the third fight),"he said. "I've been in the gym constantly. Riding the bike, running on the beach, in the gym at night. "I was 239 pounds at weigh-in and in unbelievable shape." V endola and Carthern went five rounds, V endola's longest bout. "I knocked him out in the fifth round," V endola said. "It was a good, good, solid fight." An upset for Vendola, who started boxing just over 10 years ago. He had one amateur fight before turning pro. His professional r ecord stands at 14-3. "First, I would like to dedicate this fight to David Rickman, the one who got me started in this,"Vendola said. "When David passed away, I stopped for a while. Iwasn't really focused on it." Rickman's widow convinced Vendola he had to keep fighting. Vendola had debated on r etiring after this fight but will fight on. "I've worked so hard the last five months," V endola said. "This is the fourth fight in three months. Finally, after years, the sport paid off for me financially. I made more money this last fight than all my previous fights added up. No sense of stopping now. I have so many offers on the table for even more money." V endola will fight in November in Jacksonville. "They called me to fight Riddick Bowe, a three-time world champion who fought Evander Holyfield three times, losing only one time out of 43 fights."SPECIALChris Vendola of Fernandina Beach won the WBF heavyweight title last month, beating Andrae Carthern, a two-time California Golden Glove champ.Ve ndola claims WBFtitle SHORTS Continued on 4B

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK T he flounder season has arrivedMany seafood lovers claim flounder is their favorite fish to eat. However, if you notice of how many area fishermen fish exclusively for flounder, the numbers may well be less than 20 percent. Remarkably fishermen angling exclusively for flounder are hooked both for its fighting ability and excellent table fare. Larenza Mungin made Amelia Island famous several flounder fishing seasons ago while fishing from the George Crady fishing pier at the southern tip of Amelia Island. Mungin, fishing with 25pound fishing line and fresh dead shrimp on the bottom, landed a 20.9-pound southern flounder that made the I.G.F.A. record books as the all tackle record. Mungin made his historic catch on Dec. 23, 1983. Several giant southern flounder have also been landed by area fishermen while fishing at the footsteps of historic Fort Clinch. Carl Middleton has landed several flounder from these fishy waters, some weighing over the 10-pound mark with his largest weighing right at 14 pounds. The shoreline running from the Port of Fernandina Beach to Fort Clinch has also produced some real doormatsize flounder. A shallow edge laden with broken pilings and r ocks drops into a deep channel, offering ideal habitat for flounder. Flounder is a very unique species of gamefish with a flat body and camouflaged skin that allows them to lie flat on the bottom and totally concealed from passing baitfish. Flounder will also semi-bury themselves into the bottom, thus further concealing their presences. Once a baitfish passes over their concealed position on the bottom, the foraging flounder can easily capture its dinner. T aking into consideration how flounder relate to both habitat and concealment, flounder fishermen will typically drag their flounder baits slowly along the bottom, hoping to place their barbed bait right over the stalking flounder. However, key to becoming a successful flounder fisherman directly relates to how good you are at being patient. Once you have detected the solid strike of the flounder, fishermen must resist setting the hook. Instead, skilled flounder fishermen will drop their rod tip, allowing slack in their fishing line, count slowly to five and then set the hook. Foraging flounder will often kill their prey first and then slowly move the dinner back into their mouth, where the barbed bait is likely to make a good hook set. And on occasion, flounder will actually kill their prey, discard their meal onto the bottom and then come back and eat their meal. So, once you feel that solid flounder strike, wait patiently OUTDOORSTerry Lacoss OUTDOORS4BWEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER10, 2014 SPORTS News-Leader for a second strike and then set the hook. Flounder terminal tackle includes 20-pound braided main line with an egg weight threaded onto the main line followed by a plastic bead. The terminal fishing line is then attached to a 50-pound barrel swivel employing a Palomar knot. Next, a 12-inch section of 30-pound fluorocarbon shock leader is then attached to the business side of the two-way swivel. Finally, a 2/0 kahle hook is tied to the r emaining end of the shock leader using a Palomar knot. Best baits for flounder include live finger mullet, small menhaden, large bullhead minnows and live shrimp. Once again, fish all of these live baits slowly along the bottom and employ plenty of patience when setting the hook. The daily bag limit for flounder is 10 per bag measuring at least 12 inches.

One of the more interesting is found on South Seventh Street. Lined up all in row are four houses that are the same but different. They are affectionatel y called the sisters. One can tell they are related in some way. T hey offer a true Cinderella story, or should I say Cinderellas. They were built f rom salvage left from the remains of the elegant Egmont Hotel. Long gone, the hotel was considered one of the most glamorous of its time. Its advertising brochures boasted steam heat, lighted by g as, hot and cold baths, oral annunciators and a fireplace in every room. In addition,a ctivities included rowing, sailing, fishing and hunting. The hotel offered a bowling a lley, shooting gallery, billiard room and transportation to the finest beach in the world. Built in 1878, the hotel was as elegant as any in her day with elaborate gardens a cross the street. The four-story hotel stretched 134 feet along Seventh Streeta nd 128 feet along Beech Street. During the season of 1880 the Egmont served 1 ,000 guests. As tourism moved south, the hotel became less popular and all attempts to find a use for the building failed. Samuel Swan, a prominent real estate e ntrepreneur, tried to sell the land and salvage from the elegant hotel and in thee nd bought both the land and salvage himself. The hotel was originally built for $ 150,000 and Swan purchased four large lots and the salvage for $2,100. It was torn down in 1901 and in 1905 local entrepreneur Louis Hirth bought the deteriorating hotel and built four identical houses on S outh Seventh Street and three cottages on South Sixth Street. M any houses and properties in the Historic District have bits and pieces of t he elegant hotel. The claw-foot tubs original to the hotel remain in some of the homes. The saddest of the four houses was sided with asbestos at one time and cannot be restored. The silhouette r emains, but the poor house has been nick-named the Ugly Step-Sister. T he hotel was named the Egmont as a reference to the English era on the island w hen John Perceval, the Second Earl of Egmont, was given a vast land grant. During this period of British rule, the island may have been known as Egmont. The sisters feature classic Victorian d etailed doors, windows and porches that give a hint of the wonderful grand, oldh otel that once occupied the entire block where the houses now stand side by side. D ickie Andersons book Great Homes of Fernandina, Amelia Islands Architectural Treasures, offers profiles of some of the historic districts most interesting homes and includes a driving tour. The book is availa ble at the Book Loft and island gift stores or by contacting Dickie at dickie.anderson@ gmail.com.

MICKI SMITH For the News-Leader F F i rst Baptist Church on South Eighth Street in F ernandina Beach is celebrating its 155th birthday during the month of September. Each S unday will highlight a period of time in the history of the church. Sunday, Sept. 14 will feature photo displays spanning the years 1909-1959, when the red brick church that still stands today at Fifth and Alachua streets was erected. I n 1916, G.C. Burgess was elected church clerk and chairman of the Board of Deacons, a position he held for 3 0 years. Two years later, the Womens Mission was initiated and circles established in three geographic areas. I n 1925, the Rev. T.J. Herring and the congregation tore down the wooden church that had served the town for 37 years. Herring, who had recently arrived from pastoring in Parrott, Ga., led in the design and construction of the new brick building at Fifth and Alachua.( Similar church buildings can be found in Parrott and S hellman, Ga.) T he new church had 16 Sunday School rooms and a total capacity of 700, and by 1925 it had 267 members. A pipe or g an was added by the Y o ung W omen s Auxiliar y in 1928, but a year later the Gr eat Depr e ssion hit and from 1929-39 the church was able to pay only the interest on its mortgage. In 1939 two pulp mills located in Fernandina Beach, j ust before the outbreak of World War II. From 1941-45, t wo temporar y buildings wer e erected to take care of the g rowing Sunday School needs. A mission Sunday School began in the Five Points ar e a in 1942, meeting in a building that once ser v ed as a r estaurant. This work stalled during the war but resumed afterwards and First Baptist Church conveyed the property to constitute the Five Points Baptist Church in August 1950. In 1949, membership at First Baptist reached 684 and a pastorium was built acr oss Fifth Street from the c hurch for the Rev. John Hunt and his family. Three years later, an educational building was added to the main chur c h building to house the Sunday School class es, administration, choir and, later the Jack and Jill pr e school. The first addition to the church staff came in 1955, with a Minister of Education and Music, and in 1956, Mrs. A.J. Fox began the Jack and Jill pre-school ministry with 34 children. By 1958, the Rev. Loren Williams wash olding two Sunday mor ning services to accommodate the gr owing congregation.

Because the administrative hear ing pr ocess is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Permitting Authoritys final action may be different from the position taken by it in this written notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit.Persons whose substantial interests will be af f ected b y any such final decision of the P er mitting Authority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding,in accordance with the requirements set forth above.
