This 10th annual event had 74 golfers. Kids Bridge is a supervised visitation center, with a homelike setting, offering on-site supervised visits, onsite unsupervised visits, and parent exchange services. In 1997, the 7th Judicial Circuit Judges, dealing with the consequences of the lack of a visitation center in the area, asked the Junior Service League of St. Augustine to establish one in St. Johns County rather than refer families to Jacksonville or Daytona Beach. In 2002 the doors were opened for Kids Bridge in St. Augustine. Its goal is to provide an atmosphere of safety, stability and permanency for at-risk children. In this supportive setting, children in crisis can begin to heal their hearts, nurture their strengths, and reach their full potential as healthy members of our community. It is to provide a community-based setting where children and families can meet, spend time, share common experiences, and work together to strengthen their sense of self and family unity. Advocating on behalf of children, we work to engage community resources in support of children at risk of abuse, neglect, and abandonment. more information contact 904-824-8810 or websites: www.kidsbridgegolf.com and www.kidsbridgestaug.org. at Palencia

The group viewed a video of the Whitneys research which encompasses using marine life to understand more about human health and the environment, and their K-12 STEM outreach program. The Whitney, which is a University of Florida research institute celebrating 40 years is located on the Southernmost part of St. Johns County across from Marineland. Catherine gave an overview of starting up a Sea Turtle Hospital to care for sick and injured sea turtles. In the presentation, the types of Sea Turtles most often found in and around our shores (Loggerhead, Green and Leatherhead) were covered, and how conservationists and scientists are concerned about a disease that we are seeing more in NE Florida. Sea Turtles can die from this disease, and stranded turtles are now taken 200+ miles away for treatment and rehabilitation. This disease called Fibropapillomatosis (FP) can be treated and the Sea Turtle can be returned to the wild. The UF Whitney Lab would like to study this disease further to understand what is happening with Sea Turtles and ocean health in our area. A dedicated conservationist has helped the Whitney start this project with an initial private donation. The Sea Turtle Hospital is seeking further help from the community to get the project started and is looking for donations to help open the Sea Turtle Hospitals doors. For more information or to make a donation, please contact Cat Eastman 904 4614013 or Jessica Long 904 461-4018. The Whitney Laboratory Website is www.whitney.

Running a close second are the rumors about the future of Pier Park and the impact of the new hotel coming members of the community stand on these topics the Civic Association will be seeking input from you. The survey will be available online and some hard copies will be available at the Wednesday Market and Music by the Sea Concerts. The information gathered will be presented to both City and County Commissions as well as the Parks & Recreation Department in hope of assuring that the needs and wants of the community are met. Parking Music by the Sea and all other activities at the Pier Park have been affected by the opening of the new Salt Life Restaurant. The restaurant offers free valet parking but many patrons are using the Pier parking lot. Many in the community expressed concern about this before the Salt Life permit was granted. We are glad to welcome Salt Life and they are trying to do their part by offering the free valet parking. If restaurant patrons don't utilize the valet, it may force the City and County to enact some restrictions in order to insure that parking at eh Pier is for activities There will be questions on this topic in the survey. If you are on the Civic Association newsletter list you will automatically be sent an invitation to participate. We encourage you to respond quickly so we can insure those who live and work here have input. Thanks to the 1100 plus who came out for our opening Music by the Sea Concert last month. Te concert series could not happen with out the support of our great sponsors Longstreet Auto, Reunion Bank, Camping World RV and Flagler Hospital.

Civic Association News The City commission met in May and re viewed the proposed charter amendments. noted changes that will be completed for the June meeting. Changes in language and for emergency meetings to be declared within 24 hours were acknowledged. The city attorney Doug Burnett will be presenting those changes for the June meeting. Vice Mayor O'Brien brought forward a very timely issue in regard to beach safety. Perhaps you knew that through an Eagle Scout project we now have location markers at the beach accesses. Please make note of where you are in case of an emergency. These markers help the beach emergency services locate your position on the beach. The Vice Mayor will be presenting in June new designs that will make for easier reading for all beach goers. Commissioner Gary Snodgrass led the commission though a successful evaluation process of the Chief of Police and the City Manager. With Commissioner Snodgrass' guidance the policy was initiated and completed quite successfully. Both the Chief and City Manager were evaluated and both were show to be more than competent if not superior in their abilities to serve our community. There was a joint meeting of the county issues that have increased on Beach Boulevard. You may have noticed an increase in cars and parking issues from Pope Road down to the pier park to 11th street. One possible solution suggested by our Chief of Police, Rob pier area. This possible change in the driving pattern, one way in and one way out, was discussed and we are looking for the county to approve the change in the driving pattern. Also more parking spaces to be outlined along the curbs was discussed. We looked at moving the crosswalk to the center of the pier park area to make this crosswalk safer for pedestrians. Please watch for these possible changes if you decide to park your car at the pier. A Street issues, such as cars waiting to get on the beach with back ups onto Beach Boulevard were also discussed I personally want to thank the county for listening and working with our city to help ease this problem. Summer is here and there will be numerous events at our pier area. For the local residents, if you decide to attend the events that are happening at the pier I encourage you to either walk or ride your bikes.

The two public servants were/are Police Chief Robert Hardwick and, guess who? Brad Pitt? Donald Trump? Elvis? No, no, NO!! It was me! I know that Im very easily overlooked, for I have neither The Brads handsomality nor The Donalds continent-size ego, and Elvis and his entourage left the building years ago after locking me in the cellar. Yet here I am, having escaped from it, still toiling tirelessly at all the myriad tasks, mighty, minuscule and miscellaneous, that (sigh) truth be told and then some, must be with the department heads daily attended to, so that the non-law enforcement side of the citys government continues to function. Cant you tell that Im way totally so perspiring at the mere thought of all those tasks? You might at this point say, not only about the perspiration, but about the evaluation: well, so what? Employees being evaluated is hardly a noteworthy topic. Happens all the time in organizations large and small. Stop wasting our time, Royle. You need to write about something of real interest and substance, such as an essay featuring morality-compromised acts and the of down-and-dirty skullduggery by local south Florida. In time, dear readers, therell be an essay about such, but, for the present, Ill continue with this evaluation theme. Yes, evaluating employees happens all the time, but whats unique about the evaluations of top public employees in Florida is that, because of the states strict Sunshine Law, the evaluations can be done only at a public meeting. Individual commissioners may meet privately with an employee, to discuss frankly that employees work performance. But, collectively, the commissioners can discuss and all--only at a duly advertised meeting, at which minutes are taken and the public has the opportunity to comment, and where the commissioners remarks and the publics comments become part of the citys permanent record and the respective record of the employees who are evaluated. I do wonder at times whether CEOs in the private sector are aware of this and whether said executives would relish being evaluated by their board of directors in public, often on TV, and always with members of the citizenry and sometimes the media commenting on the evaluation. Maybe if such happened regularly, the stratospheric compensation of some private sector CEOs would be reduced, or would at the very least be hard for boards of directors to justify before the publics intense stare and probing comments. wooden nickel that its worth, so Ill write for the wooden quarter that its worth, my opinion is that the evaluation of top public sector employees should be done in public. After all, these employees work for, and are paid by, interest in the employees work performance. The competence of these employees can have a direct effect on the citys quality of life and how well or otherwise the publics money is spent. The citizens should be able to see on what basis their elected representatives evaluate these employees, and the citizens should have an opportunity to state their opinions about the employees and the evaluation process itself. For those public employees who dont like such scrutiny, I have some advice: go work in the private sector. The recent evaluation by the commission of your citys police chief and city manager was the outcome of a proposal made by Commissioner Gary Snodgrass when he was mayor in 2013. He researched the performance evaluations used by other Florida cities and found one that seemed suited for our city. He discussed this at a meeting with his fellow commissioners and they accepted his proposal. The appraisal has 10 performance factors or criteria by which the employees work is to be evaluated: 1. managing work/organization and planning, 2. leadership and problem solving, 3. professional development, 4. organization commitment, 5. communication skills and positive interpersonal relationships, 6. decision making, 7. delegation/employee responsibility, 8. administration, 9. ethics, and 10. citizen responsiveness. For each criterion, there are three ratings or ranks: superior, fully competent, or performance needs improvement. For each rating, space is provided for a commissioner to write an explanation or comments. But theres more. The second part to the commissions evaluation of the police chief and city manager is based on each employees job description. My description has 16 responsibilities and duties. They include budgeting, the preparation of reports and agendas for the commission, attending meetings, assisting with the writing of grants, heads accountable for the management of their departments, and so on. Chief Hardwick has a similar list of responsibilities/duties. evaluation process: using the 10 performance factors and the duties/responsibilities in their respective job description, the police chief and the city manager are required to do a selfevaluation, i.e., describe how well they think responsibilities/duties of their job description. At a special meeting on April 28th, the city commissioners discussed their evaluations of Chief Hardwick and Yours Truly Humble here and determined an overall rating or ranking for each of us. Chief Hardwick received the highest rating, superior. As for Yours Truly Humble: to paraphrase the immortal words of Ed Koch, the late and great former mayor of New York City, how did I do? Well, I guess I could agreed with the vast hordes of my loyal readers (all 3 of you), who, with hearts bursting with sincerity, believe that my work performance unbeatable, Grade Triple A-Plus, stupendous, marvelous, fabulous, and awesomely and maximumly off-the-charts and out-of-sight. Of course, my loyal readers also highly rank me for my humility. If you hear the sound of a horn, its the trumpeter who precedes me to herald my appearance before I enter a room. manager school: hire a trumpeter! OK, enough of the self-mockery. Its time to tell you the stark, unvarnished, in-yourface truth about my evaluation. The reality is what youd realistically assume (of course, because thats how you assume reality will be. Does that make sense?). In some areas I was ranked highly, in other areas less so. But the on the up and positive side. Also positive were the constructive comments provided in the commissioners evaluations about what Im doing right and where improvements are needed. Such guidance is helpful, and for that reason the evaluation process itself was coming October, when the commission will again evaluate Chief Hardwick and me. Should you want to see Chief Hardwicks and my self-evaluation, and the mayor and commissioners respective evaluations of each of us, you can read them online at www. staugbch.com/meetings.

Ancient celebrations honor the midsummer solstice which divides the year in half. Ceremonies, like the changing of the guard from winters gray to of summer. In ancient China, the midsummer solstice celebrates the Earth, femininity, and yin forces. The winter (fall) solstice celebrates the heavens, masculinity and yang forces. Like a calendar in stone, Stonehenge, built around midsummer solstice, which designated the time to plant and the time to harvest. A little closer to the midsummer solstice with family reunions, vacations, graduations, new beginnings and the ever popular beachside wedding. St. Augustine Beach is a favorite location to make memories and share happy-ever-after-ing. Arbor Day celebrations included applause for our trees and the poster and poem contest winners, and recognition of neighbors efforts to incorporate environmental concerns and Florida Friendly Yards (FFY) in their landscape designs. Kudos to the teachers and parents who provided encouragement to all the contestants. Poster contest winners: 1st, Stella Budkoski; 2nd, Abbey Greenberg; 3rd, Lorelie Lovett. All three are R. B.

The U.S. Forestry Department and Smokey Bear shared their knowledge of environmental issues. Josephine Spearman, Environmental Educator with Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve, showed a redbay ambrosia beetle in a small vial. This tiny but destructive force, about the size of a penny, has been documented as carrying the fungus that causes laurel wilt (a disease which has killed several tree species including the islands redbay trees). Students and parents moved to each learning station and saw examples of how trees and the environment are interconnected. Such dedicated folk, along with business and community leaders, continue to set Advisory Committee (BAC) looks forward to expanding this resource portion in next years Arbor Day celebrations. Tree huggers all, we thank you. Special thanks go to the BAC members, city staff, Public Works and business and community leaders for their support. Kudos to all who made this years celebrations a success. The City of St. Augustine Beach again has earned bragging rights and been designated a Tree City, ten years and counting. To qualify as a Tree City USA, a community, town or city must meet four standards established by the Arbor Day Foundation and the National Association of State Foresters. These standards were established to ensure that every qualifying community would have a viable tree management plan. Visit Tree City USA, www.arborday.org/programs/ treeCityStandards.cfm. Individuals interested in learning more about the Florida Master Gardener program should contact Keith Fuller, SJC Horticulture Agent, at 904-209-0430. Applications will be accepted into July. The program began in 1979, and the St. Johns County MG program is one of 46 Florida counties sponsored by the Cooperative Extension Service of the University of Florida / IFAS at Gainesville. After receiving 50 hours of intensive horticultural training and satisfactorily Master Gardeners are required to serve a minimum of 75 volunteer hours within a year after completing training.

We can make the shortest shadow a little longer and enhance our community. Sea turtle season is May 1 through October 31. To comply with regulations that protect the turtles and the Anastasia Island beach mouse, beach driving and lighting rules are in effect May 1 through October 31. from 8:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Additionally, all beachfront properties are required to reduce the impact of interior and exterior lights that may impact nesting sea turtles. Leave only your footprints, providing the turtles with a I have to say, I didnt see it coming but I should have. In a society that ceaselessly seeks to exploit all manner of human (and maybe inhuman!) sexuality to its own greedy ends, I guess it was inevitable. I just didnt think it would go this low. To what do I refer, dear reader? Actually, Ive been making reference to the role of fathers in especially their growing daughters lives for some time now, so this is of a piece. But like I Get this. So, certain traditional family advocacy groups organize a special event for adolescent girls to support them in a personal decision to abstain from sexual relations prior to marriage. Doesnt particularly sound like a huge threat to society, now does it? In fact, in another era not very long ago, such efforts would have been praised as simply common sense means to help secure a stable society, where the most intimate of relations between the sexes was honored as deserving of all the protection and holy encouragement that marriage could provide. By extension, helping young people to avoid casual liaisons that could so often end up wounding them in the deepest of ways was considered wise and laudable. And so, Purity Balls were born. Young ladies would pledge their virginity until Mr. Right came along, at which point a wedding ring on the as much as humanly possible in an imperfect world, their bodies and souls could have the intended. The prime defender of his daughters honor and integrity was always understood to be the father, and so dads were important features of Purity Balls, dressing in tuxedos and lending dignity and gravitas to the occasion. Well guess what? A certain online media resource (which will remain unnamed) published some really interesting photos of proud and protective gussied-up dads with their equally resplendent and coiffed female offspring at these events. And were there ooohs and aaahs of appreciative expression from the comment peanut gallery? Nope. Probably THE most common published comment was CREEPY! Or like one fool who wrote, What kind of father thinks of sex when he thinks about his daughter? Like talk about utterly and perversely missing the entire point! (Did I say perverse? Good, Ill say it again, in all-caps, PERVERSE). Like the guy undergoing a psychiatric evaluation who claimed that every Rorschach Test image he was being shown had something to do with a sexual theme. When the doctor commented that the patient seemed to have a one-track mind the latter said simply, But YOURE the one showing me all those dirty pictures! And so we have the truly perverted, perverted in their values, perverted in their own souls, trying to label responsible fatherhood as somehow an awful thing. It really happened, folks, and if you write me Ill tell you the source so you can read it for yourself. You know, they say ridicule is most and appreciation of the facts. I think I read that one somewhere in the Wall Street Journal, not sure. From wherever it came it pretty much sums up the cause of the kind of irresponsible stupidity that passes for the new Common Wisdom in our world today. All I can say is, hey young dads, dont let this madness throw you off course this Fathers Day. Whether or not you get a card from your teen-age daughter(s) this year, one way or another you need to let her/them know you deeply care about them and their future lives. If you have some fence-mending to attend unique privilege you have to give away this young woman someday. And Im not just talking about a future husband. Ultimately, the God who made you both will demand an account from you as He takes your child as His own in the World to Come. Its never too late to do the right thing. Let 2014 be your year, bro!

If so, you may have good reason, particularly if you are in one of the higher tax brackets. After all, municipal bond interest payments typically are exempt from federal income taxes, and possibly state and local income taxes, too alternative minimum tax. However, since not all municipal bonds are the same, youll in terms of risk. Municipal bonds, like corporate bonds, essentially face two types of risk: interest rate risk and default risk. Interest rate risk becomes clear when market interest rates rise, causing the value of your existing municipal bonds to fall. No one will pay you full price for your bonds when newly if you plan on selling bonds before they mature, you risk losing principal. You can largely ignore this type of risk simply by holding your bonds until maturity, at which point you will receive the face value back, provided the issuer doesnt default. And that brings us to the second type of risk: default risk. Historically, municipal bond default rates have been much lower than those of corporate bonds, particularly lower-quality bonds. But different types of municipal bonds carry different levels of default risk. Heres a quick look at the two main categories of municipals and their risk characteristics: of a municipality. A general obligation bond issuer is required to do everything in its power, including raising new taxes, to ensure that interest payments are paid on time and in full. This requirement helps support the creditworthiness of general obligation bonds. airports, affordable housing and other public works, are paid by dedicated streams of revenue. For example, revenues generated by the sewer system pay the interest on a sewer system revenue bond. Because revenue bonds have more restricted revenue streams than general obligation bonds, they are generally viewed to be riskier. To compensate for the added risk, revenue bonds usually pay a higher rate of interest than general obligation bonds. When studying the risk factors of revenue bonds, you also have to consider the type of revenue bond involved. For example, some sectors, such as housing and health care, may be more volatile, as are some industrial revenue bonds. (These bonds, which are such as a new manufacturing facility, are business.) Of course, when evaluating the risk potential of municipal bonds, you dont have to rely on guesswork. The major bond bonds to determine their creditworthiness. There are no guarantees, but by sticking with the bonds that are investment grade, you can help reduce the risk of owning a bond that goes into default. Municipal bonds can be valuable additions to your portfolio. Besides providing income thats free of federal taxes, these bonds offer you a chance to help support valuable projects in your community. But, as weve seen, different munis have different risk what type of bond youre purchasing before you write the check.
