We will embark upon this process later this year. Proposed charter changes, if any, approved by the City Commission will be presented for a general vote of the citys registered voters in the fall of 2014. During the interim, a Charter Advisory Committee composed of citizens (to be selected by the City Commission) will be established to review the Citys Charter and submit any recommended changes to the Commission. To ensure that the charter review manner, the City has engaged Ms. Marilyn Crotty, Director, Florida Institute of Government, University of Central Florida to facilitate the effort. During a recent presentation to the City Commission, Ms. Crotty made these observations about characteristics of good city charters: compliance with applicable laws and regulations. The charter should not be based on individuals or terms with a longer view in mind. They should be readable and understandable. uniform and unambiguous. of details offering basic structure of local government.

The analysis was performed to evaluate the general conditions and feasibility to develop various parcels to provide off beach parking combined with increase bicycle and pedestrian access to St. Augustine Beach. The need for off beach parking is important to the future of beach tourism. It becomes a pressing issue with the pending 450th Anniversary of St. Augustine in 2015 which is destined to bring additional visitors to the local beaches. The City of St. Augustine Beach is the focal point in the County for beach visitors with heavy use of existing parking areas. It is not uncommon for our area to be at or close to 100% capacity for both off beach and on beach parking. Fortunately, a key conclusion from the study is that our City provides several potential opportunities to increase parking and access to the City of St. Augustine Beachs beautiful coastline. covering the recent Off Beach Parking Study will be discussed at the May City Commission Meeting. We are excited about the opportunities to move our City forward being ever mindful, though, of the need to retain what makes this place we call home special and unique. Best regards, S.

St. Augustine Beaches News Journal May 2013 5 By Max Royle St. Augustine Beach City Manager CITY CHARTER THANK YOU FOR VOTING US BEST 2012 and RUNNER-UP for in st. augustine for Its by far not the most exciting read in the nor edge-of-the-seat descriptions of heroic adventures and conquests of diverse and sundry adversities. No, not at all, for the document were about to focus our cutting edge (?) intellect on is none other than the St. Augustine Beach city charter. local governmental machinery, or something to that effect. I doubt that few citizens have read it. Nonetheless, despite this benign neglect (which may be a city charters fate most of the time), its an important document for the health, safety, welfare and effective governing of and by the people who live within the citys boundaries. A charter is a citys constitution, but without the Bill of Rights. In sections labeled articles, a charter prescribes a citys form of government (whether executive mayor or commission/ commissioners and four year terms in the case duties and whether theyre elected by districts or at large; the duties and powers of the mayor and whether he or she is elected by the people or by the commission (the latter is what happens in our city); the duties and powers of certain (e.g., the police chief and the city manager); and city is to have. Theres even more thrilling and suspenseful language about election procedures, the counting of absentee ballots, and regulations concerning run-off elections, the determination of winners in the general election and in the event of tie votes. Oh, please, spare me all this excitement! youll exclaim. Sorry about that. When the Town of St. Augustine Beach was incorporated in 1959, its charter most likely was based on a generic or model charter that had been developed by a local government institute or league of cities. Though the exact basis of the towns charter is lost in the fog of time, I sense from reading newspaper articles about the towns formation and the minutes of the commission meetings during the early years that the towns founders were a practical, low-budget group of folks who favored cheap over expensive concerning matters about how to create a town and how it was to be governed. Back in 1959, a dollar was really worth a dollar, and there werent many of them available in a tiny coastal enclave of less than 400 residents. So the town founders located a model charter somewhere, likely tinkered with it here and there charter was created and used with few changes from 1959 to 2004, a long span that indicates the model charter worked well for the city. In fact, a check of the charters footnotes reveals that other than amendments to show changes to the Citys boundaries as property was annexed, the charters main articles have been amended only four times during those 45 years. The changes instead of marshal as the title for the head of the citys police department. Yes, at one time, our little corner of the Florida paradise had a real, live marshal to keep the citizenry safe from outlaws, desperados and miscreants. The slow pace of charter changes ended in 2003, when, after the 2002 election, four new charter. In June 2003, the commission appointed a charter review committee composed of seven city residents: Bobby Crum, Vickie Hall, Rick Mauldin, Jennifer Orlando, Edward Porter, Don Terrill and Dan Weimer. During the following seven months, the committee met regularly and reviewed the charter, article by article. The result was a list of recommended changes that the city commission then adopted by ordinance. On the ballot for the August 31, 2004 election, there were twelve charter propositions for the voters to accept or An explanation is needed here. Citizens have as changes to the citys charter should have been put on the ballot for the November 2nd general election, which had a larger voter turnout as 2004 was a presidential election year. The simple response: The countys Supervisor of Elections told the city in the spring of 2004 that there might not be enough room on the November ballot for the citys charter changes, especially if space were needed for amendments to the Florida constitution. As it turned out, ballot space for the general election was limited because of six Florida constitutional amendments and two sales tax for transportation improvements, and for the purchase of land for conservation and protection of natural and water resources; and second, a proposed charter for the county. The voters said no to both. Of the citys twelve charter changes, the voters approved ten, a ratio for the positive that does credit to voters discerning powers. One of the two changes voted down was to authorize the city commission to pay itself. Commissioners since the citys inception had been unpaid. The other change denied was to allow the commission chief without cause. Apparently the voters were another charter change that required a 4/5ths vote pay issue was on the 2006 primary election ballot. This time, the change was approved by a vote of 749 yes, 523 no. Perhaps the favorable vote was because the propositions wording was other Florida cities of similar population, size and budget are paid? The proposition presented to the voters in 2004 was more open ended: Shall the charter be amended to authorize the commission to set its compensation by ordinance? Another charter change approved in 2004 was the requirement that the charter be reviewed every 10 years, starting in September 2013. Well in advance of that month, the city commission has started the process for the next review. Again, therell be a committee composed of seven residents. However, this time the commission has hired a facilitator to help the committee. She is Ms. Marilyn Crotty, whos the director of the Florida Institute of Government at the University of Central Florida. Ms. Crotty is well-experienced with helping Florida cities review their charters. Also, the city commission is familiar with her work because in 2012 she helped it develop the citys strategic plan. Ms. Crotty will charge the city $4,000 plus travel (continued page 9)

Nicholas A. Marziani, D. Min. St. James Church Services of Holy Eucharist St. Augustine House of Prayer 34 Ocean Avenue St. Augustine, FL 32084 Its All in Your Head (or is it?) Pastor, St. James Church, a Catholic Community of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter Life is full of ups and downs and investor, youre no doubt happy to see the ups but the downs can seem like a real downer. Isnt there any way to help smooth out the volatility in your investment portfolio? First of all, to cope with volatility, its helpful to know what causes it and there can be many causes. Computers that make trades in milliseconds, based on mathematical models, are sometimes blamed for intraday volatility, but large price swings can also occur following the release of government economic reports, such as those dealing with unemployment and housing starts. Global events, such as the European markets into a tizzy. By being aware of the impact of these events, you can see that the workings of the markets especially their volatility may not be as mysterious as you thought. Still, while knowing the causes of volatility can help you prepare for market swings, it wont blunt their impact on your portfolio. mix of investments because your portfolio can be more susceptible to negative price movements if you only own one type of asset. To illustrate: If you owned mostly bonds, and interest rates rose sharply, the value of your bonds would likely drop, and your portfolio could take a big hit. But if you owned stocks, bonds, government other investment vehicles, the rise in interest rates would probably affect your portfolio Unfortunately, many investors think that if they own a few stocks and a bond, theyre you should. For the equity portion of your portfolio, try to own stocks representing many market sectors and industries. Also, consider international stocks. And rather than corporate bonds and municipal bonds, and by purchasing short-term, intermediateterm and long-term bonds. Work with your classes and investments that are appropriate How you ultimately diversify your portfolio depends on your risk tolerance, time horizon and long-term goals theres no one correct asset mix for everyone. And over To cite one example, as you enter your retirement years, you may need to increase your percentage of income-producing investments while possibly reducing the amount of growth investments you own. These growth-oriented investments tend to be more volatile, and you may want less volatility during your retirement. However, even during retirement, you will need to own a certain percentage of growth investments to provide you with the growth potential may help take some of the volatility out opportunities whenever possible. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor. Connie Reep Financial Advisor Ben Reep Financial Advisor We talk, we listen, and get to know you. While growing up in suburban Philadelphia many decades ago, I used to watch and be amused by the famous originally Detroit, then LA-based, syndicated TV comic talent Soupy Sales (real name Milton Supman). His antics were brilliant, and one of those classic mini-routines he used to go through involved throwing a plastic model of the human brain around the studio while exclaiming, your brains are falling out, your brains are falling out! Well, Soupy now have a serious proposal by President Obama before us to engage in a ten year to map neural activity in the human brain to a resolution never seen before, down to the level of individual cells and synapses. The Brain (for Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies) Initiative is an attempt to, in the presidents words, unlock the mystery of the three pounds of matter that sits between our ears. Lots of scientists are piling on maybe pie praising the initiative, and speculating that we could hopefully soon have in hand cures for such diseases and disorders as Alzheimers, autism, and even PTSD, a Iraq and Afghanistan. Still for all that, the policy community are concerned about unintended consequences of this line of investigation. Besides the obvious concerns over eventual mind-control and such, there are many other more immediate issues associated fundamental, and strikes to the core of what it means to be a human person in the Image of God, a deeply foundational notion to all Abrahamic religions, including Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. When all is said machine? Or maybe the machine ITSELF IS the ghost, or spirit, or soul. Maybe instead of saying I love you to my beloved, I might more accurately say My dear, dopamine look at you (from Leil Lowndes, author of How to Create Chemistry with Anyone, as quoted in the Wall Street Journal). Others cite the plasticity and changing nature of the brain, and voice concern over whether the approach the president is calling for is truly And where will it all lead? Well, how about a new book from a neuroscientist and philosopher from the university of Hawaii, Bruce E. Morton Psychedelic Visions from the Teacher: A Neuroscientists Initiation to Reality and Spirituality. Dr. Morton is an avowed atheist, and believes, like Timothy Leary of another generation, that psychotropic drugs can reveal to us our true selves in relation to the cosmos, all without any necessary reference to the Deity. OK, we knew it would probably come to this. Bottom line for me: the Judeo-Christian revelation convinces me that, as David the psalmist and Sweet Singer of Israel put it, I am fearfully and wonderfully made. People of faith have always known that our bodies, including our brains, are part of the PLAN by which the Lord brings into being creatures aware of themselves, of each other, and of Himself. It is a case where of the perceivable parts. Goodness, we even invoke in physics concepts like dark matter and dark energy to account for the vast amount of the universe (96%) we cannot detect with any of our instruments. I wish President Obama the best in this equal enthusiasm for the MIND beyond all minds that made us who and what we are. Blessings to you all, Fr. Nick.

Trees hold fond memories like the tree house my daughters and her friends built, Dad was a roofer. What the short stubby nails lacked in length was made up for with a large house construction trade. Construction was conducted in the cool shade and a spontaneous picnic was held upon completion. Memories and secrets are safe with trees. Arbor Day was born in 1872, when Julius Sterling Morton proposed a visionary plan, plant a tree and about one million trees were planted in Nebraska. For the past 141 years the numbers have grown with the help of the Arbor Day Foundation (ADF). Our City has earned the honor of being named Tree City USA and met the four standards established by The ADF and the National Association of State Foresters: Establish A Tree Board or Department; A Tree Care Ordinance; A Community Forestry Program With an Annual Budget of at Least $2 Per Capita; An Arbor Day Observance and Proclamation. Thanks to tree huggers we can take a deep breath and congratulate our fair City. Arbor Day will be celebrated on May 10th at 5:30 P.M. at City Hall. Its time to celebrate Mother Natures gift, her trees with poetry, posters, and winners of the Florida Friendly Yards awards. Building on last years success, Learning Stations, will again share fun facts about trees, Florida Friendly Yards, native plants, water conservation, recycling, Master Gardener programs, and whats growing in the St. Augustine Beach Community Garden. At each Station you will have your passport validated and stamped. Smokey The Bear and refreshments and receive a free tree and help Mother Nature celebrate her beautiful trees. buzz word because there are so many shades of green and many dynamics are involved: the air you breath; the water you drink; the very food you eat; and the peace of mind you seek when you go for a walk in the woods. This peace of mind is being disturbed by invasive invasive species congers up visions the Men in Black, 1997 movie about alien life forms, about a plant with a various appetite. While there is concern about the long term effects by putting the right plant, in the right place, when this formula is challenged by invasive plants, the impact is felt on native Trees and landscape in Florida. Melaleuca trees (Melaleuca quinquenervia), also known as punk trees, native to Australia, are pests in plants are being eliminated and the Everglades, the plants and animals that have evolved to live in the glades. During the 50 years since its introduction, melaleuca is threatening the very existence of this internationally known between the devastation caused by Melaleuca trees and the Burmese python. Both are invasive species and both are threatening the very existence of native wild life of both plant and animal. However there is good news because there is a market for melaleuca mulch. University of Florida research indicates it is one of the most termite-resistant mulches commonly available on this mulch from local retailers, ask the management to carry it ( shtml). Sadly there is no a good solution for python but perhaps there is a good recipe call you in to dinner. Invasives a little closer to home include the Brazilian Pepper tree and the Pueraria lobata, commonly known as Kudzu, which was introduced at the Japanese pavilion in the 1876 Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia. The speed, spread, and reach of Kudzu does not make Mother happy. The Florida Exotic Pest include : Exotic, Native, Naturalized Exotic, and Invasive Exotic. Invasive exotics are altering native plant communities by displacing native species, changing community structures or ecological functions, or hybridizing with natives and adversely effecting Floridas biodiversity and plant communities.

For persons who may want to be committee members, there are two requirements: They must be city residents, and they currently cannot be a member of another city board or committee. Theres an application form which you can 472-2122, or by email at between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. Citizens can send suggestions for charter changes to Cathy at the email address above, by regular mail (2200 A1A South, St. Augustine Beach, FL 32080), or even provide them by telephone: 4712122. Four suggestions for changes have been received thus far: to put the 35 foot building height limit in the charter; to create the position of city clerk; to have the mayor elected by the citizens; and to have the police chief be appointed by and report to the city manager. Each year since the citys inception, the commission has elected one of its members to be mayor, and the commission has appointed the police chief, who has reported to them, not the manager.

The Publix Shopping Center 471-2830 At First Coast Rehabilitation we provide physical and occupational therapy using a manual approach. Patients often ask me to explain what it is, why we practice this way and what the advantages are. Physical and Occupational therapists are trained and therefore use a variety of skills to examine and treat problems of dysfunction and pain. Manual the cause of the dysfunction as well as addressing the symptoms. When using a manual therapy approach, our goal is to permanently solve the core issue causing the dysfunction and/or pain. Even chronic conditions can be greatly alleviated with this solution-oriented approach. Its like continually putting air in a leaky tire (the symptoms) versus is to identify the cause of the dysfunction. This is done by performing a thorough, dynamic structural examination, which provides information not always evident on a static radiograph/x-ray, MRI or stationary test. A dynamic exam is a biomechanical or non-working relationships between the bodys nervous system. Some physical/occupational therapists prefer to immediately prescribing exercises for a given problem. Manual physical and occupational therapist use their hands (and some equipment) to correct the soften tight/painful muscles using myofascial manipulation and restoring function by facilitating correct movement patterns. Tactile cues can help patients learn how to move properly again. Manual therapy is effective when treating patients with a multitude of either orthopaedic or neurological problems general aches and pain to post surgical recovery any age and any part of the body.

During the past few make us sick. At the Power House we are all about safety. Isnt that right Mow? Yes absolutely. Remember the incident last year at Power House? We had while loading it on a trailer. Still gives me the chills when I think of what could have happened, that mower weighed over 1000 lbs. The man was watching over us that day. Whats the best safety tip we could discuss this month Mow? The most important factor for safety is really simple. Two words. Com mon Sense. Granted thats asking a lot from some, but those simple words are long forgotten for most accidents that happen. People being stupid are generally the case. Here are a couple of things to consider. Never mow your factory installed on a mower. Not only is that wrong but imagine the trouble Why would someone disconnect a safety switch Mow? Generally what we see at the Power House are units that have been altered because the customer is annoyed that the mower shuts off when they dont want it to. Like if there is an obstacle in the way of mowing and it needs safety system was put on there for your protection. Granted some people why the manufactures have safety systems in place. How does the Power House handle these situations of disconnected safety sys tems? Good question. First of all if a unit is brought in for repair and the safety system has been altered, we give the customer two choices, one we repair the mower and attach the safety system back to factory settings, or two they can take the mower back home. We will not release a unit back to a cus tomer if the safety system is not functioning to factory settings. Thats all the time we have this month, so until next month, remember St Augustine Power House is located at 125 Pope Road. Visit us at and if you have any questions for Mow email him In clos Ask Mow?

Queen Guenevere sang a catchy little ode to Spring, in the 1967 classic movie, Camelot, It's May! The lusty month of May! That lovely month when everyone goes Blissfully astray. She summed it up quite nicely however several of the City more visionary leaders suggested a last line should be added: When Mamas Happy, Everybodys Happy. Its May, so take a stroll through our magical Kingdom and see yards awash in blooms, going blissfully astray, vacillating from of Claude Monets peaceful pastels seem in the gardens in Giverny, France, to riotous hues of Paul Gauguins exotic Tahiti. Amarylliss red trumpets herald Springs soliciting stares, and share the latest gossip with the trees now clad in their own Spring Haute Couture of chartreuse petticoats. Pure eye candy! Spring has sprung and Mother Nature is very happy. The Queens words still ring true theres simply not a more congenial spot for happily ever aftering than here in our very own Camelot by the sea.
