Mom arrested for leaving child in hot car
ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
A Yulee mother of three was arrested Tuesday for child neglect after her
18-month-old son was apparently left in
a vehicle for four hours.
According to police reports,
Michelle King, 25, of 96023 Hawthorne
Court, left her house Tuesday at 4:45
a.m. with her husband and three children to drive him to work in Jacksonville, arriving back at the residence
about 6 a.m.
The child, one of a set of twins, was
reportedly discovered by his 6-yearold brother, who
went to the vehicle
around 10 a.m. to
retrieve a toy.
The older child
reportedly removed
the toddler from his
King
car seat located on
the right rear side of
the vehicle, carried
him into the house, laid him on the
carpet just inside the door and woke his
mother, according to reports.
King called 911 after being awakened by her older son.
“One of my twins was outside. He
got outside. And he’s all sorts of hot.
And he’s just really tired looking,” a
tearful King told a dispatcher during
her call to 911.
“He’s still awake, I think he has
heat stroke,” she said.
“I don’t know how he got out of the
house,” King said during the call. “I
was sleeping with my other children. ...
I should know better than to keep any
doors unlocked ... it’s so hot out there.”
After being evaluated by rescue

workers, the child was found to be suffering from heat exhaustion and dehydration, and was transported to UF
Health in Jacksonville, where he was in
stable condition, according to reports.
The child had a temperature over
100 degrees when rescue personnel
arrived, the report stated.
While interviewing King, her son
and one of the rescue workers, police
discovered that King had forgotten to
get the third child out of the SUV when
she returned home from Jacksonville.
According to a police report, “Mrs.
King’s failure to remove the child from
the vehicle could reasonably be expected to result in serious injury and/or a
substantial risk of death for the child.”
“Through Mrs. King’s failure to
take prescribed medication, failure to
remove the child from the vehicle, and

PHOTOS COURTESY OF THE U.S. NAVY
U.S. Secretar y of Defense Chuck Hagel meets Wednesday with
personnel at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Ga. He thanked
them for their ser vice and warned that threats in the Mideast from
a newly declared Islamist state created by rebels fighting in Syria
and Iraq pose new dangers to the United States that will require
continued militar y vigilance.
Nassau County accepted a bid
Wednesday for the construction of a
new sheriff’s administration building
and for the expansion of the
Emergency Operations Center to
house 911 dispatchers. The bids, totaling nearly $10 million, were within
county estimates.
Acon Construction Company of
Jacksonville came up with the lowest
price to design and build both projects. Here are the price tags:
Sheriff’s administration building:
$7,756,000, 35,000 square feet.
911 Call Center: $1,920,000, 5,000
square feet.
Design work gets under way in
August and shovels are scheduled to
get in the ground Dec. 22, according
to county officials.
“Excited and anxious,” said Sheriff
Bill Leeper, who attended the opening of the bids Wednesday morning at
the Robert M. Foster Justice Center in
Yulee.
“We still have a long way to go but
we’re moving the process forward,”
said Leeper.
The sheriff and his staff operate
out of a collection of trailers on A1A,
just east of I-95. Plans for the construction of a new building have been
in various planning stages for more
than a decade.
“The 300 employees, reserve officers and volunteers affiliated with the
Nassau County Sheriff’s Office are
excited and anxious to move out of
our current trailer park facility into a
modern-day operation,” said Leeper.
In an interview after the bids were
‘Bang for its buck’
In bid documents submitted to the county, Acon Construction Co., Inc.
in Jacksonville said it has handled projects ranging in price from $500,000
to $6 million. They include renovation of the Emergency Operations
Center for the city of Jacksonville, a drainage program for Baldwin, an
Explosion Ready Room for Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Ga., an aircraft maintenance facility for Cecil Field and a fire department training
room for the Naval Air Station (NAS) in Jacksonville.
“You don’t do work for the Navy unless you’re really good,” said the
county’s Facility Maintenance Director Bob Knott. Knott is an engineer with
certification to work in Florida and California. He spent 30 years with
Anheuser Busch and worked for a consulting company for NASA’s space
program.
“The county is going to get a lot of bang for its buck,” said Knott.
Officials say that construction should start in late December. As for
completion dates, the 911 center should be done in July 2015. The sheriff’s administration building should be completed in March 2016.
Knott said that Sheriff Bill Leeper will pick the building’s finishes.
“Once the (county commission) signs off, we’ll get busy,” said Knott.
open, Leeper said the new facility will
help the community and the department.
“The new building will help us provide better service to the public and
better conditions for our employees,”
said Leeper.
County Commission Chair Barry
Holloway also attended the opening
of the bids.
“Absolutely, I’m happy with the
numbers,” said Holloway.
“It’s less than $10 million and I
think that will help us as a board make
a decision on whether to write a check
or look into financing the project.”
Holloway said he is leaning towards
borrowing the money.
“Of course in business you want
to pay for something if you can with
cash, but there are great advantages to
borrowing the money,” said Holloway.
“Rates are so low and there are tax
advantages to consider as well,”
The county board has set aside $10
million for the construction project.
The five commissioners have disagreed about whether to pay cash or
borrow the money.
Commissioner Danny Leeper has
previously said in public meetings that
he would like to finance the construction.
Commissioner Steve Kelley has
advocated “a pay as you go” approach.
Walter
“Jr.”
Commissioner
Boatright has leaned towards financing.
Commissioner Pat Edwards has
expressed a desire to pay cash. But, at
the board’s budget meeting on
Monday, Edwards said he was plan-

Reminder: A1A detour this weekend
A1A will be completely closed from
5:30 a.m. Saturday to 8 p.m. Monday
at the railroad crossing between I-95
and U.S. 17 in Nassau County while
the crossing is reconstructed. The
detour routes are US 17 and I-95.
Motorists and pedestrians will be
allowed to access businesses and residences on A1A but will not be allowed
to cross the railroad tracks.
The existing railroad crossing,
owned by CSX Transportation Inc., is
being replaced with a new concrete
crossing. The area is also being resurfaced once the crossing is replaced.
The
Florida
Department
of
Transportation is overseeing the construction and roadway resurfacing.
Skydiving on the beach?
MARY MAGUIRE
News-Leader
A skydiving company wants to open
in Fernandina Beach and land its tandem jumpers on the beach behind
Slider’s Seaside Grill at South Fletcher
Avenue and Sadler Road.
“We’re going to generate money,”
said John Hornsby, who attended
the Nassau County Commission
meeting Monday to ask for the board’s
support. Hornsby said he has been
getting the “run-around” from
Fernandina Beach officials, who would
have to approve a plan for skydiving on
a city beach.

Hornsby said he represents the
company’s owners, which include his
brother and sister-in-law, Richard and
Lisa Hornsby. He identified the business as Sky Dive Fernandina Beach.
Hornsby said the business could
generate $700,000, based on numbers
at his brother’s skydiving business in
Aruba. Hornsby said 15 percent of the
proceeds would go to the city, and that
he already has a deal with McGill
Aviation in Fernandina Beach to get
the airplanes.
Hornsby said the business would
employ five people who would do the
“pushing.”

from the board and Hornsby corrected himself to say that no one would be
pushed.
He said plans call for tandem
jumpers every 10 to 15 minutes, with
planes completing a round in 30 minutes. He did not say what days or hours
the business would operate.
Hornsby told commissioners that
the effort is a good marketing opportunity for Amelia Island. He said the
jumpers would wear helmets mounted
with video cameras that would at times
point at four canopies stenciled with the
words “Amelia Island.”

remove the child from the vehicle,
and failure to determine if the child
was absent from her presence for
four hours, she followed a course
of conduct which she reasonably
should have known could have
caused death or great bodily harm,”
a report stated.
There was no further information about the prescribed medication that the woman had failed to
take. That information is exempt
from public record by federal law
but could be introduced in court
during a criminal case.
“This course of conduct was further established by the fact that the
child was found in medical distress
by his unsuper vised sibling and
Mrs. King was not aware of the situation until she was awakened by
her child.”
King was arrested and charged
with child neglect without great bodily harm, and police alerted the
Department of Children and
Families to evaluate the case,
according to police reports.
King was booked into the Nassau
County Jail on a $10,002 bond. She
posted that and was released from
jail.
She has no previous arrests in
Nassau County, according to Clerk
of Courts records. According to the
Duval County Clerk of Courts, King
was arrested June 26 in Jacksonville
on a criminal traffic charge of having
a driver’s license expired more than
six months. She was fined $141.25 in
that case.
According to court records,
Michelle Lee Clayton and Daniel
Ronald King were married on Dec.
26, 2012.
Following is Michelle King’s call to 911 Tuesday
after her 18-month-old son was found by his brother in the family car. King’s voice is shaky throughout the call and at times she moans or is inaudible.
Her other children can be heard in the background.
Dispatcher: 911, what is your emergency?
King: One of my twins was outside. He got outside. And he’s all sorts of hot. And he’s just really
tired looking.
(missing portion)
K: He’s 18 months
D: OK, has he lost consciousness or anything?
K: No, he’s still awake. I think he has heat
stroke.
D: You said what?
K: I think he has heat stroke.
D: OK, is he responding to you?
K: No, no, no, ... yeah, he is, yeah.
D: OK, and is he able to talk to you normally?
K: No, he doesn’t talk really yet. He’s starting to
fall asleep.
K: (King calls the baby’s name) Get up. Get up.
D: OK, is he responding to you?
K: He’s trying to sleep right now.
D: OK, and he feels hot to the touch?
K: Oh yes.
D: OK, has anything like this ever happened
with him before?
K: No! No ma’am.
D: Alright. Has he had anything to drink? Or
have you ...
K: I’m giving him water right now.
D: OK, just a second ... (typing can be heard)
K: Is that good or bad?
D: Well, normally we tell you not to give him
anything to eat or drink before the paramedics get
there but if you think he’s overheated he may need
something cool. Um, can you take his clothes off?
K: He already has his clothes off.
D: Alright. Another dispatcher is sending the
paramedics, OK, so just stay on the line and I’ll tell
you what to do. I want you to remove his clothing.
K: OK, he doesn’t have any on.
D: I want you to apply cool water to his skin.
K: OK. Like in the tub?
D: Yeah, you can put him in a cool tub of water,
um, you don’t want it to be so cold that it upsets
him, but if you can just put him in a cool tub of
water, or, you know, or in the sink, wherever he will
sit. Is the air conditioner on in the house?
K: Um, yes, the air conditioner is running.
D: Is anyone there with you?
K: I’m sorry?
D: OK. Is anyone there with you?
K: No. It’s me and my three children.
D: OK, is your front door unlocked for the paramedics?
(King can be heard asking one of her children
to please unlock the front door, then returns to the
dispatcher.)
K: He’s all red like he’s got sunburn. I don’t
know how he got out of the house!
D: OK, was he outside by himself?
K: I’m sorry?
D: Was he outside by himself?
K: Um, yes ma’am. I don’t know how he got out.
D: OK. Do you know how he long he was out
there?
K: Um, probably two hours.
D: OK. Where were you during this time?
K: I was sleeping inside with my other two children.
(audible whimpering and moaning)
D: How old are the other children?
K: Um, there is another twin and she’s 18
months and I have a six year old.
K: You said cool water?
D: Yes.
(King can be heard directing one of her children
to get a stepstool)
D: Did you have a fenced yard or something, is
that where he was? Where was he outside?
Where was he outside by himself ma’am?
K: Um, he was out ... out ... out in the back.
D: Is there a fenced yard or ...?
K: Yes.

K: He’s acting real lethargic.

Dr. Jay Crump
For the past 16 years I have had the privilege to serve as your
optometrist and take care of your vision and eye health care needs.
The success of my practice has been a result of the trust you have
instilled in me. It has been a trust I appreciate and have taken very
seriously.
Upon deciding to return to SW Florida I have spent a great deal of
time finding the right optometrist to serve as my replacement. I had
to find a Doctor who I felt was talented and caring and the perfect
match for the position and practice. I am pleased to introduce Dr.
Jerry Koss, who will assume the duties of my practice as of today.
He will be taking over at our present location and my wonderful staff
will remain to assist in the transition and your continued care. All
patient records will remain here under Dr. Koss's care.
I sincerely appreciate the support and confidence you have
bestowed on me throughout the years by allowing me to be your
optometrist. Dr. Koss will take good care of your future vision health.
Having found the right doctor allows me to leave knowing you are in
good hands. Please join with my loyal staff in welcoming Dr. Koss.
Sincerely
Jay Crump O.D.,P.A.

There’s more than monkey business going on at
the Monkey Barrel in the Spa & Shops at Amelia
Island Plantation.
Owner Dina Martin offers a wide selection of
items with little ones in mind.
“We carry a variety of clothes and toys from
around the U.S. and some European countries as
well.”
Martin worked in retail management after college.
When she decided to open her own store, she
took business development classes to familiarize
herself with the business side of retailing.
Dina chose to open a children’s store because
she enjoyed working in retail and being around
children.
She wanted to create a whimsical atmosphere in
the shop using an animal that children could enjoy,
so she chose monkeys.
With the help of family and friends, Monkey Barrel
was opened in March 1996 and it’s been a source
of fun and fulfillment ever since.
“It’s been great and my family loves to help me
with unpacking inventory, merchandising and
working/selling.”
Patrons will find clothing in sizes from newborn to
size 10 for boys and size 14 for girls and a good
selection of toys including puzzles, games, dolls,
and cars as well as beach and pool toys, stuffed
animals and arts and crafts kits.

This report is new vehicle
sales in our country through
June. The beat goes on for
improved sales accomplishments in America, as those who
follow national news are aware.
The first half of the year saw
sales of 8,168,888 vehicles, a 4
percent improvement over last
year’s 7,833,026. We have come
back to what is considered a
more typical volume, pre-recession.
Low rates and an aging fleet
of vehicles on the road have
combined to keep the momentum in place. As usual, the raw
numbers in the nearby box are
accompanied by some observations. We will again list the top
seven manufacturers creating
U.S. sales, after which there is a
big volume drop-off.
I would call your attention to
the middle column, the percent
change in raw sales. If you didn’t gain 4 percent in sales, you
lost ground. Chrysler and
Nissan were the clear winners,

County’s Economic
Development Board
director to retire
MARY MAGUIRE
News-Leader
Steve Rieck is retiring as
executive director of the
Nassau County Economic
Development Board (NCE
DB) after seven years on the
job.
Rieck said that his last day
would be Sept. 30.
He made the announcement in a June 20 letter to the
organization’s board of directors. County Manager Ted
Selby said his office did not
receive a copy.
“I typed it up and put a
stamp on it,” said Rieck. “I’m
still one of the people who
uses the U.S. mail.”
In an interview last week,
Rieck, who turns 65 in August,
said he plans to spend time
with family, including his wife,
two adult children and his
three-year-old grandson.
“The first thing I’m going to
do is kick back and take it
easy,” said Rieck. “But I have
a lot of work to do between
now and then.”
At the top of his “To Do”
list, said Rieck, is setting the
agenda for the organization’s
strategic planning retreat. The
board and its investors are
meeting Sept. 23 at White Oak
conservation center in Yulee to
map out a plan for the future.
Rieck said he would work
with the NCEDB’s executive
committee to find a replacement. The committee includes
the board’s four officers and
three investors from the local
business community.
“I wanted to give them time
to find someone who can continue the goals we have established and move the mission
forward,” said Rieck.
NCEDB member Helmut
Albrecht, who is expected to
serve on the search committee, said the organization benefited from Rieck’s professional leadership.
“We are grateful to have
Steve working for us,” said
Albrecht. “One of his biggest
accomplishments is Nassau
Tomorrow.”
Nassau Tomorrow is a fiveyear strategic plan to generate jobs in Nassau County. The
program focuses on achieving
goals in five areas, including
business recruitment and marketing, business retention and
workforce development, government affairs, communications and investor relations.
The NCEDB said that in
its first year, seven projects
brought in 567 new jobs and
$97 million in capital investment.
Rieck is also credited with
working with county officials
to establish the county’s first
tax incentive program. The
economic development grant
was established almost two
years ago and is currently providing thousands of dollars in
tax rebates.
Among the companies to
receive local grants are
Science
First,
ALM
Technologies, Vystar Credit
Union and DTW Marketing.
“Steve helped open the
door for us,” said Nassau
County Commission Chair
Barry Holloway, adding that
the community has benefited
from Rieck’s professional
experience.
“He showed us what to do
and got us moving in the right
direction. We will miss his
leadership.”
Rieck has also been instrumental in helping Rayonier

approved for

Rieck helped organized a ceremonial opening in 2012 with
Florida Gov. Rick Scott.
“We don’t have a taker yet,
but we’re going to and when
we do we will give thanks to
Steve,” said Holloway.
When Rieck started working for the county in 2007, the
economy was robust. When
the recession arrived, Rieck
said he used the time to establish business-friendly ordinances and visit companies
around the country as well as
overseas.
“One of the silver linings
in the recession was that business did not rapidly expand
and we used that time to make
sure that Nassau and its
municipalities were ready to
catch the next wave of economic growth,” said Rieck.
In addition to helping the
county, Rieck also has partnered with officials within the
city of Fernandina Beach to
increase economic development.
“Steve gets credit for bringing people together and showing us the importance of building alliances when it comes to
economic development,” said
Fernandina Beach Mayor Ed
Boner.
Rieck spent the bulk of his
40-year career in Atlanta, managing civic organizations,
including the Clayton County
Chamber of Commerce. He
also did private consulting in
business development, strategic planning and finance.
Rieck, who lives with his
wife in O’Neil, said he is leaving his job but is staying in
Nassau County.
“I’m staying here,” said
Rieck. “It’s a great place to
work, live and, as I’m soon
going to find out, retire.”

‘Pilot program’ for food trucks
MARY MAGUIRE
News-Leader
Serve now. Regulate later.
When it comes to food
trucks, the Nassau County
Planning & Zoning Board says
let’s get cooking.
At the meeting July 1, the
board told Growth Management Director Peter King to
stop working on a food truck
ordinance and issue three permits now for service at county
parks.
Board Chair Tom Ford
called it a “pilot program.”
“Address it in a year’s time
and then look at regulations
after that,” said Ford.
Board member Pat Keogh
agreed.
“Don’t start with a regulation,” said Keogh. “Observe it,
and Peter gets back to us.”
King said after the meeting
that the county commission will
need to sign off on the plan.
During board discussion,
Keogh said he owns property in
the District of Columbia that he
rents to the owners of three
food trucks.
“It works great,” he said.
“Why are we regulating this?”
There are many factors to

Mike
Hickox
Appraiser
announced this week that his
office has selected a new software vendor to host the over
$9.6 billion worth of property
his office assesses.
Vision Government Solutions has been selected to
implement the CAMA (Computer Assisted Mass Appraisal)
system, a process that will take
roughly 12 months to administer.
Vision is a leading supplier
of land parcel management software technology to local government organizations, enabling efficient assessment and
mapping procedures while also
effectively administering property exemptions, according to
a press release issued by the
Property Appraiser’s Office.
Vision’s CAMA software is
currently installed in over 400
assessing offices across 10
states, with installations ranging
in size from 300 parcels to more
than 1 million parcels. Nassau

While there was brief discussion about garbage cans and
signage, the Planning & Zoning
Board did not dwell on operational details.
Keogh wanted to know why
the proposed ordinance limits
the number of food trucks to
one per acre.
“That makes no sense at all,”
He said Austin, Texas allows
8 to 10 food trucks to congregate in one place.
“It’s kind of an exciting concept,” he said.
Here’s what board member
Jeanne Scott wanted to know
about permits.
“Why limit to three?” said
Scott.
Keogh said three is a good
indication, and then made the
motion to approve the threepermits plan. The motion was
seconded by board member Jeff
Gray.
There is one person who has
County currently has approximately 48,000 parcels.
Hickox said that the current
system has been in place since
the late 1970’s and has not
shown signs of improvement.
“Technology is a big part of this
office and we need to focus on
ways to make the process more
efficient and easier to manage,”
he said. “The partnership with
Vision will help us reach the
level of technology we need to
accurately appraise all 48,000
parcels in Nassau County.”
The current assessment
software does not cooperate
with the website and causes
many issues for customers, and
Hickox said he feels the new
software will eliminate redundant work by staff, saving time
and tax dollars. Conversion is
expected to begin very soon.
“We expect to go live next
summer, allowing us to submit
next year’s roll using the new
system,” he said. “This is an
exciting improvement for our
office.”

King has suggested starting

Some questions to consider.
Is it self-propelled? On a trailer? Does it need a sink to sanitize equipment and wash
hands? Who supplies utilities?
And nailing down the definition of a food truck is only a

been pushing the food truck
agenda. That’s Mario Manganaro, who ran Pompeo’s Italian
restaurant in downtown Fernandina Beach for 25 years
before closing and retiring
about three years ago.
“We should concentrate on
parks,” said Manganaro.
“You just want to open up at
county parks?” said Ford.
“Exactly,” said Manganaro.
Ford suggested a lottery for
the permits.
“I’m not gonna spend
$100,000 on a lotter y,” said
Manganaro, who implied
that’s how much the investment
on a food truck would cost
him.

letter writers on this page are their own

the newspaper, its owners or employees.
Our kids were all working late today so
Oma and I picked up the three grandkids from
daycare and took them all to our house for supper. My 3-year-old granddaughter, Lora Leigh,
is the precocious one of the group. In fact, if
you look up precocious in the dictionary, you’ll
see her grinning face beside it.
So, our conversation in the car on the way
home went like this: “Papa, where’s mommy?”
she inquired. She’s at work, sweetie, I replied.
“Oh. Papa, where’s daddy?” she wanted to
know. He’s at work, too, darling, I answered.
“Oh. But Papa, where’s Uncle Richard?’ she
persisted. He’s working late tonight, short
stop, I explained, knowing whose name was
coming next. “Papa? Where’s Auntie Em?” she
asked. She’s working in New York this week,
Lora Leigh, I told her.
Long pause. And then: “Papa, don’t you
go to work?” she asked. No, baby. Papa’s
retired, I explained. And then the most candid,
empathetic answer ever: “Poor Papa. I’m real
tired, too.” If I hadn’t been driving, I’d have
been bent over double on the side of the road
slapping my knees and laughing myself sick.
For those of you who are parents, what are
the things that you look back on when your
kids are grown that you remember most vividly? The little handprints in watercolor sent
home from the daycare center? The singsong
ABC’s all the way through, including the ageless character Elliminopee? The A+ on the science project that you did while your child
watched? OK. Those are important milestones.
But I’ve got to be honest here. And y’all know
me well enough by now to know that I never
flinch at addressing the sometimes off-color things of life.
The things that give me the
most laughs about my kids
and grandkids are the verbal
foibles, gaffes, nonsequiturs
and cobbled together
mumbo-jumbo that oftentimes passes for answers or
explanation. And chief among
CUP OF these sometimes embarrassingly innocent utterances that
JOE
usually fells me the hardest is
a young’un’s observations
Joe Palmer about some bodily functions.
A teacher friend of mine
once told me that the quickest way to get a
whole roomful of four- to six-year-olds to laugh
in unison is for one of them to pass gas loudly.
Kids love commenting on farts. If you don’t
believe it, do it around one and wait for the
results. We were in the kitchen several weeks
ago when I accidentally and suddenly made a
startlingly loud sound of that sort. “Papa
Fartied!” my precocious one screamed gleefully. Dean, our 4-year-old grandson is the more
serious and stern of demeanor of the two.
Shaking his finger and frowning he responded:
“We don’t say that word, Lora Leigh. We say
tooted.” Well hell’s bells. That’s all it took.
“Farty! Farty! Farty!” My sweet little granddaughter chanted, capering around the
kitchen. And then Dean decided not to be left
out. “Tooty! Tooty! Tooty!” he sang along.
Did Papa apologize and correct his young
charges? Nope. Did Papa lean on the counter
and laugh himself silly? Bet your bottom dollar
he did.
And it isn’t just my own. We were at our
youngest son and daughter-in-law’s house for a
cookout awhile back and one of our grandson’s
little neighborhood friends was there. She
looked like a sweet little pixie but it didn’t stop
her from running through the house giggling
and shouting to everyone present – and to her
father’s great embarrassment – “Peee-Youuu.
Diddy tooted out his butttttttt!”
Several weeks ago, Dean and Lora
Leigh wandered into the bathroom as I was
applying deodorant. Whatcha doing, Papa, they
asked, craning their necks for a better look.
Putting on deodorant, I answered. Why, Papa?
Because it makes your armpits smell better, I
answered, bereft of a better explanation.
Ewwww, Papa has stinky armpits! And that was
all we heard the rest of the evening, all the way
through suppertime, tubbies and bedtime stories. Now, if I want a great photo of my grandkids with great big laughs and grins, I don’t say
cheese. I just yell “Stinky armpits!” Try it
sometime. No more frownie photos, I promise
you.
The late, great Art Linkletter was famous
for featuring and interviewing kids on his radio
and television shows. His experience with the
brutally candid speech of children lead him to
write a series of books called “Kids Say the
Darndest Things.”
And they do, too. We got a new one on us
just the other night: Donkey balls.
Still laughing.

Marina is ‘a silt trap, and that is the crux’
S
ometimes, you can’t just keep
turning the other cheek.
After reading Steve
Nicklas’ column (July 9), I
cannot just sit there and let a veiled
character assassination continue to
haunt me. In his column Steve
wrote: “The marina looks and
operates better than before.
The Westrec dockworkers are courteous and professional.” He then
continues by adding “While the
mounds of silt are hardly Westrec’s
fault, they confound marina operations ...”
Well, let’s start with the “Westrec
workers.” I agree that the workers
are courteous and professional, but
let’s get the facts: four out of the
seven present employees worked for
the city before Westrec took over
(dockmaster Kevin Little, maintenance worker Jay Williams, dockhands Roger Dittbenner and Roy
Pirkle). Those guys were professional and courteous, back when I was
there, and no offense to the present
manager Joe Springer (who I think
has done a great job, by the way),
but I find it more than a bit insulting
to suggest that only with the Knight
in Shining Armor – aka Westrec –
coming in, that out marina staff is
courteous and professional.
Next, why does Westrec get a
bye because “the mounds of silt are
hardly Westrec’s fault, they con-
OPINIONS
FROM THE

Langshaw
found marina operations” yet the city
is vilified for mismanaging things
with the same set
of circumstances? I
agree that Westrec
has a steep hill
against it, considering the siltation
issue, but that was
a clear and known
fact when they bid
on the operational
contract, so it is
not like they inherited some problem
our previous man-
agement created.
And what Westrec also has over
the former city management, is an
apparent open checkbook, and
amazing patience and support from
the city commission. When we
turned over control to Westrec, we
were in the last days of the Great
Recession, yet we still handed over a
recently dredged facility. Yes, it was
not perfect, and it still had high
spots, and there was a huge debt
service (all things we had to battle
during our tenure), but to say that
things are so much better now than
before is turning a deliberate blind
eye to the reality that is the marina,
and has plagued us for decades.
Also remember, that the city
(that’s you and me, folks) is still paying for the maintenance, the dredging, the employees, their FICA and
federal taxes – and paying Westrec
$100,000 to do exactly what the city
did for many years.
Additionally, Westrec benefits
greatly from the renovated dockhouse. Yes, they paid for the renovations, and kudos to them for that,
but that came with important concessions from the city.
First, when we used the building,
we had a small retail area; because
we also had to provide for a dockmaster’s office, combined with a
staff breakroom, and a storage/
workshed. Westrec was given permission to move the dockmaster’s
office out of the dockhouse and
combine it with the manager’s office
and the bookkeeper’s office in the
old dockhouse that was previously
leased out to the charter boat association (which brought in $10,000
year). Additionally, the new administrative office by the boat ramp,
which was used by the city (it
housed the director and bookeeper’s
office) is now being used as a glorified storage room, allowing more
valuable retail space in the dockhouse instead of consuming it with
storage. And lastly, when we asked
to sell beer and wine in the dockhouse (a good revenue generator),
we were denied.
The water injection concept is
the only game-changer in town.
So Steve is not being accurate or
fair comparing apples to oranges, in
any sense of the matter.
But instead of trying to make
Westrec look good by kicking the
old dog yet again, let’s take the facts
as they are: regardless of who is
managing the marina, it is a silt trap
and that is the crux of it all.
As I have stated publicly ad nauseam, the water injection concept is
the only game-changer in town. And
regardless of the ill-informed
naysayers who refer to the silt as
“muck,” which it is not (please look
up the definition – it does not contain filth or manure – it is a naturally
occurring part of our local ecology.
Jeez, I wish people would know what
they are talking about!).
I will be glad to debate the merits
of the water injection concept with
anyone, and I doubt anyone can
refute my claim that the background
turbidity rationale is flawed. Just go
down to the river on a strong west
wind and look at the water. Better
yet, put on a mask and jump in and
go three feet below the surface (yes,
I have done it), and see what you see
(or what you can’t see). The turbid
cloud mass is so concentrated that
you can barely see any light, much
less anything else.
Mother Nature is performing agitation dredging and water injection
all the time, transporting the cloud
continually, allowing it to settle in
one spot, only to be stirred up again,
re-suspended and transported elsewhere. It never ends.
Isn’t about time we stop playing
politics, continually making hay on
the favorite whipping boy (the former city management of the marina), at the cost of the taxpayers? If
we want Westrec to succeed (and
believe me, I am one who does),
then let’s stop just patting them on
the back, giving the same old excuses “the silt, the silt, the silt.” Instead,
let’s push ahead on the only economically viable option that we have
– water injection technology.
Times’ a-wasting, and so are our
tax dollars!
Coleman Langshaw is the former
city marina director.
VIEWPOINT/HARRY SIMMONS/AMERICAN SHORE & BEACH PRESERVATION ASSOCIATION
As sea rises, we must rise above politics
N
ew climate change studies
just released brought new
interest in how sea level
rise will impact on our
coastal cities and communities.
That’s good, whatever your thoughts
on this hot-button issue.
Why? Because the first step in
being prepared is being aware – and
any coastal manager or resident who
knowingly ignores a potential threat
to the community and interests is
not being a good steward for those
interests. Saying it could happen is
not necessarily saying it will – but to
deny even the chance of catastrophe
is a fool’s game.
The good news is that, in cities
from Miami to Manhattan, Seattle to
Old Saybrook, people are looking at
how vulnerable their community
could be if seas start to rise more
rapidly. In some areas, this is not an
abstract interest. For instance, some
areas of Miami Beach and Honolulu
flood at slightly higher than normal
high tides today, a problem that calls
for action – especially when this
flooding is a new development in the
past decade.
Other cities, particularly those
with major infrastructure within the
tidal or storm surge zone, are looking at the lessons of coastal catastrophes such as Sandy to see what
steps could be taken today to make
this infrastructure withstand whatever tomorrow has in store. Given the
price tags some cities could be facing, starting this process early is
wise since it’s always easier to adapt
over time than to make up for lost
ground all at once when trying to
recover from a coastal disaster.
What’s the key to being prepared? Looking at your vulnerabilities today so they don’t become liabilities tomorrow.
Look at coastal areas that are
prone to trouble in normal conditions – low spots that flood quickly;
hot spots that erode quickly; vital
infrastructure such as roads, utilities
and public areas that are most likely
at risk in any storm or weather
event. What can you start doing
today that will make them safer
tomorrow?
Look at properties that are most
vulnerable or have made your repetitive-risk list thanks to multiple damage claims. Can you plan to do
something that will lower that risk,
or can you work to move those
structures away from future risk (or
eventually remove them altogether)?
Look at your community. Does it
have a realistic view of coastal conditions, a desire to proactively address
problems (coastal and otherwise)?
Or does it lurch from crisis to crisis,
addressing problems only when
they become nearly unmanageable
or major threats to public safety?
Smart communities anticipate disaster (as much as possible, of course),
rather than allowing a crisis to set
the local agenda. How? By being
prepared.
When it comes to sea level rise,
pundits and policy makers may have
the luxury of debating or delaying
because it is abstract issue for them,
but people with something at stake –

Seeing images of Earth from space can induce a
variety of powerful feelings, from awe over its
beauty to fear over its apparent fragility. Ours is a
living, breathing planet and at least so far, we
haven’t found any others where life occurs. Seeing
pictures of the Earth from outer space is one thing;
actually seeing the Earth from outer space is almost
invariably a life-changing experience. Consider
what various astronauts have said about their view
of our planet from space. James Irwin remarked
“That beautiful, warm, living object looked so
fragile, so delicate, that if you touched it with a
finger it would crumble and fall apart. Seeing this
has to change a man, has to make a man
appreciate the creation of God and the love of
God.” Edgar Mitchell observed “Suddenly, from
behind the rim of the moon, in long, slow-motion
moments of immense majesty, there emerges a
sparkling blue and white jewel . . . rising gradually
like a small pearl in a thick sea of black mystery. It
takes more than a moment to fully realize this is
Earth . . . home.” Mitchell says elsewhere that “My
view of our planet was a glimpse of divinity.”
Finally, consider what Taylor Wang felt upon
seeing Earth from space: “A Chinese tale tells of
some men sent to harm a young girl who, upon
seeing her beauty, become
her protectors rather than her
violators. That’s how I felt

Hornet heads up 2014 all-Nassau County baseball
BETH JONES
News-Leader
It was a successful season
for the Yulee Hornets but it
didn’t start out that way.
“We started off, got no hits
and lost 8-0,” Yulee High
School junior second baseman Zack McCue said. “We
were beat pretty bad by
Sandalwood.
“We went to practice the
next day and Coach Dean told
us not to worry about that
game. We started hitting the
ball a lot better. And pitching.
My boy Lake (Bedell).”
The Hornets rebounded to
ride a seven-game winning
streak. And in a rematch with
Sandalwood, Yulee turned the
tables on the larger school.
“We can’t lose to this team
twice,” McCue said. “We beat
them. It was a good game.
That was pretty fun for me. I
like the close ones.”
The Hornets didn’t fare so
well in their first encounter
with McCue’s former team,
the West Nassau Warriors.
“It was a big game for me
because it was my old team
and I wanted to beat them
more than anything,” he said.
“We were winning and we
blew it.”
But again, Yulee avenged a
loss, beating West Nassau in
the district championship
game later in the season.
McCue transferred to
Yulee last year to be closer to
Florida State College at
Jacksonville’s Yulee campus,
where he takes part in the
dual enrollment program.
“It’s just five minutes from
campus,” he said.
Academics are a priority
for the most valuable player
on the 2014 all-Nassau
County high school baseball
team.
“I get in trouble if I get bad
grades,” the honor student
said. “I haven’t gotten a C in
high school.”

weighted grade point average
and this fall will be taking one
class at the high school and
three college courses at
FSCJ.
McCue got his start in the
sport at the age of four. He’s
pretty much always been a
middle infielder.
“I used to catch a little but
I don’t like catching,” he said.
Second base seems to be
his niche. He hit .323 this
spring for the Hornets with a
.429 on-base percentage. He
scored 19 runs and knocked
in 18. The speed devil recorded 24 stolen bases.
“I got thrown out just one
time,” McCue said. “Guess
what team did it? West
Nassau. The one team I didn’t
want to get thrown out by.”
McCue has one goal for
his senior season at Yulee.
“I want to win state,” he
said. “We’re at workouts
every day not because it’s
fun.”
Coach Mark Dean will be
happy to take that ride with
his second baseman.
“Zack McCue is a highcharacter individual,” Dean
said. “He has an unbelievable
work ethic and has his life priorities set.
“This season for Zack was
impressive; he was the table
setter. Zack led most of the
offensive categories for Yulee
this past year. He has great
baseball instincts and a
strong desire to win. He was a
key component to this year’s
success.
“Zack McCue has earned
all that comes his way. I’m
extremely proud of him.”
McCue is the son of Mike
and Mandy McCue of
Callahan.
The 2014 all-Nassau
County high school baseball
team includes:
• Zack McCue, junior second baseman, Yulee. The
upcoming senior hit .323 with
a .429 on-base percentage, 19

of Music
KATE HARRIS
For the News-Leader
What is your “Sound of
Music” story? Vocal director
Mary Williams took a junior
high field trip to the “city”
movie theater in Denver and
has been “hooked on musical
theater ever since.”
Children’s Director Arlene
Filkoff stopped in Salzburg on
her first trip to Europe and
“literally twirled around in
those hills.” Closer to home,
Loren Tyler, who plays Liesl,
was apparently already “older
and wiser” when she first saw
the movie at the age of 6: “I
remember pointing at Liesl
and saying: ‘Don’t fall in love
with him! It’s not going to
work out for you!’”
New memories will be
made this week when the
perennial favorite opens at
Amelia Musical Playhouse,
where “The Sound of Music”
will run for three weekends.
The show opened on
Thursday.
The production features
two groups of Von Trapp children, who alternate on different performance nights.
According to Musical Director
Jill Dillingham, “Having so
many children who can all
sing on pitch is amazing.”
Another amazing highlight of
the show is the appearance of
the nuns, a 12-woman chorus
who expertly sing six-part
harmony – in Latin.

A couple with a vision and a cadre of volunteers make new theater a reality

o say that the new Amelia
Musical Playhouse is a
labor of love would be a vast
understatement.
The couple behind it wouldn’t have
it any other way.
“It’s very much a collaboration,”
said Jill Dillingham, who along with
her husband Gregg purchased the former Midtown bar off Island Walkway
in June 2013. They’ve been busy renovating the space ever since – along
with more than 100 volunteers.
“Jill is really the driving factor
behind this theater,” said Gregg during a recent interview as crewmembers, cast and musicians prepared for
the current show, “The Sound of
Music.”
T
Amelia Musical Playhouse is
located at 1955 Island Walkway in
Fernandina Beach. Visit ameliamusicalplayhouse.com or call 2773455 for more information.
On stage now is “The Sound of
Music,” with shows at 7:30 p.m.
tonight and Saturday and July 17-19
and 24-26. Sunday matinees are at
2:30 p.m. July 13 and 20.
“She has brought in so many
younger people who are talented,”
said Gregg, who is not only Jill’s partner in life and in business, but also
her No. 1 fan.
A piano teacher with a master’s in
music who taught for 30 years in the
Florida Keys as well as at Nova and
Barry universities, Jill’s passion is
musical theater. Down south she regularly put on shows with middle
school kids and was twice in the
Who’s Who Among American
Teachers, noted Gregg.
“I love going to Fernandina Little
Theatre — I love their shows. I’ve
done a bunch of shows at Amelia
Community Theatre. But there’s a
bunch of people who want to sing,”
said Jill.
At first the couple held gatherings
at their home on North Tarpon
Avenue. “We ended up with 30 people
in our living room and there wasn’t
enough room,” said Gregg, who jokes
that he works full-time as a refrigeration mechanic to support his theater
habit.
“We had these huge numbers of
people (eager to perform) and ACT is
jam-packed, both theaters are, and we
had all these people and nowhere to
put them,” said Jill.
So the couple began searching for
properties where they could open
their own theater with an emphasis on
musical shows and embracing anyone
and everyone with a genuine interest
in being on stage or working behind
the scenes.
They finally landed on the former
Midtown bar, with its distinctive
octagonal shape. They liked the location in a commercial district and the
ample parking. But, they admit, “We
walked into it a little naïve.”
Because the building had been
empty for a year – ABC Fine Wine &
Spirits had purchased it for the liquor
license but had no interest in locating

THEATER
Continued from 1B
there, said Gregg – everything had to be brought up to
current code. Then there was
the trash, and the wax.
“The wax on the floors
was so thick!” Jill recalled,
holding her thumb and index
finger three inches apart to
indicate just how bad.
“We spent the first few
months cleaning and hauling
out trash – kegs that were
still half-full, bottles of liquor,
garbage,” she said. Next they
removed walls, pulled up carpet, renovated bathrooms,
converted a utility closet into
the box office, painted, decorated, built a stage and
installed seating to transform
the space into a theater.
“My husband can fix anything – he can build something out of stuff he finds in
the Dumpster,” said Jill.
Working 24/7, “we had a lot
of help from a lot of volunteers,” she said.
“Now people walk in and
say, ‘I didn’t realize it was so
nice,’” said Gregg. “We wanted it to be welcoming, not
austere.” In fact the space is
elegant, fresh and fun, including a “piano bar” that opens
to reveal a hidden trove of
bottles inside. Each show features free refreshments and
sangria, with donations welcome, and works by local
artists grace the walls.
“It’s become a community,” said Jill. “We have kids
working for minimum wage
adjusting their schedules to
be in a show. We have a large
military presence and the talent that walks in from that is
amazing.”
Added Gregg, “We have
such a mix of socio-economic
backgrounds and ages and
they all call each other by
their first names,” from
retired judges to the tax collector to 20-something waiters. “We’re all in here for the
purpose of a common goal.”
Even though she and
Gregg are funding this venture, “we listen to everyone –
we don’t need to have meetings,” said Jill, who eschews
the board of directors model
in favor of a free-flowing, creative back and forth. “We are
open to people’s ideas. If you
think you’ve got something
that will float, bring it.”
That means multiple
shows are in rehearsal at any
time, and everyone makes it
work, she said. The general
plan is four big productions a
year, four revues and then
smaller variety shows in
between. Currently the
schedule is booked through
this time next year.
“We’re on a learning curve
– we’re finding out what we
can and cannot do,” said Jill,
who has plans more “cutting
edge” entertainment as well.
“It’s been extremely time
consuming. We haven’t
walked on the beach in so
long, but we figured it would
take a year or two,” added
Gregg.
That’s saying something for a couple with seven
children between them. Only
one remains at home fulltime, but the kids and their
friends still frequent the
duplex Gregg and Jill converted into a single-family
home since moving here
from the Keys.
No doubt that’s been good
training for the rigors and
challenges of theater – especially the highly collaborative
venture the couple envisions.
“Our strong point is our
adaptability and we listen to
everyone,” said Jill. “People
have been so generous. It’s
my job to pick up the garbage
and clean the toilets, but people dive right in,” she said,
her eyes wide with amazement.
She credits much of that
to the goodwill her husband
has created, noting, “Gregg
has all these skills and he
does things for people all the
time.”
Before she can finish,
Gregg begins a laundry list of
Jill’s generosity and good
works, but she quickly cuts
him off and deflects the
praise.
“I’m not being shy – I do
work really hard, but everyone else does too,” said Jill.
“We couldn’t do this without
our volunteers.”

Long drives, plants and remembering life’s important stuff
Lake City, Florida. Nowadays it’s
where my dad lives. After suffering a
massive stroke some 12 years ago,
he eventually landed there in the
V.A. nursing home. Every couple of
weeks my mom and I load up the van
and head that way to take him out to
lunch. His being there has been a bittersweet thing. Bitter because I hate
not having him closer; sweet because
I’m glad he’s still alive. They said at
best he’d only last three years. But
God! Though it’s hard having to
watch him do life from a bed and a
wheelchair, even there God has
given us many wonderful times
together. Every day is a gift.
Once we got over the initial grief
of his stroke, and decided to move
forward with what we had, things got
better. Since then, every step has
brought a new
appreciation for life
and for each other
– not to mention
the faithfulness of
God who turns bitter things into
sweet.
One unexpected
blessing has been

you might ask. Yes, Maxwell.
Maxwell is the plant man on the side
of Hwy. 90 not far from the V.A. nursing home. Right there in the middle
of what seems like nowhere,
Maxwell has beautiful plants lining
the roadway. Every time we pass by
his house, my mom tells me to slow
down. The fact that the plants are for
sale sometimes makes the slow
down a complete stop. On one particular day, unknowingly, Maxwell
handed me a simple reminder that
I’ll never forget.

bugs.” Though he continued to
explain himself, my mind drifted
somewhere else.
Where we are planted, what we
are fed and how we deal with the
stuff that comes to eat up our bugs
are by far some of life’s most important issues. To ignore them, is to
despise our God given potential.
On the topic of good soil, and
where we put down our roots, the
Bible has this to say: “They that are
planted in the house of the Lord;
they shall flourish in the courts of
our God.” (Psalm 92:13)
Along the same line, when it
comes to our need for fertilizer, the
apostle Peter puts it like this: “Desire
God’s pure word as newborn babies
desire milk; then you will grow in
your salvation.” (1Peter 2:2)
As far as bugs are concerned – to
me they represent the things that are
constantly eating at us, often in the
realm of our thoughts – it’s clear we
are the ones who have to pull them
off. “And we tear down every proud
idea that raises itself against the
knowledge of God. We also capture
every thought and make it give up
and obey Christ.” (2Corinthians
10:5)
In the end, Maxwell the plant
man has a bigger garden than I’m
sure he realizes. Not only has he provided some beautiful plants for my
mom and our family, but has helped
me stay focused on the stuff that
matters most.

The Fernandina Beach
Arts Market has rapidly gained traction on Amelia Island.
Local artists and designers set
up their booths on the second
and fourth Saturdays of the
month with a wide assortment
of arts and crafts.
Featured this week are
three unique vendors; one
works with Italian marble and
tile, another has found a practical way to re-purpose wine
bottles and the third is a family that works together creating hand crafted pottery.
Artist Tricia Fanelli of
Giulia’s Treasures blames her
Italian heritage for her love of
tile and marble. She creates
coasters, matchboxes, frames,
custom tiles, cheese plates,
tile servers, trivets and more
with seaside decorations like
mermaids, seahorses and
shells. Her lovely beach
inspired nightlights and
wreaths are decorated using
locally sourced materials.
Uncorked Lighted Bottles
are designed by Joyce who repurposes used wine and liquor
bottles into unique, practical
and effective electric lighting
options. These beautiful
pieces are works of art that
make great gifts as well as
perfect centerpieces for your
next special event!
Fernandina Clay is a family-operated pottery business
based in Fernandina Beach.
They make pottery and prints
that celebrate coastal life.
Their creations are pleas, calls
to their users to slow down
and notice the details that
make life precious. The family
makes art because, “We think
there is beauty in the most
mundane of things and we
encourage everyone to find
it.”
Other booths at the Arts
Market include fine jewelry,
woodcrafts and signage, photography, apparel, aprons,
hand-crafted soap products,
pet accessories and more.
The Fernandina Beach
Arts Market will be open from
9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday adjacent to the Fernandina Beach
Market Place on North Seventh Street. Visit Fernandina
BeachArtsMarket.com or call
Joe at 557-8229 for information
or booth space availability.
