uty may Keep

streetlights on

City Manager Michael Czymbor
told city commissioners Tuesday the
city may halt its plan to darken about
400 streetlights within city limits.
Czymbor said the city would work
with Florida Public Utilities in an effort
to keep all the city's streetlights glow-
ing after dark temporarily, at least.
An initiative to reduce the cost of the
city's streetlights by 40 percent began
in October, which meant that about a
third of the city's 1,200 lights were to
have been turned off.
Residential complaints, however,
forced the city to reconsider its criteria
for elimination of lights. City staff even-

tually adjusted the light reduction plan
to eliminate no more than one-third of
the lights on any street.
According to City Engineer Glenn
Semanisin, the city is considering keep-
ing those lights on that were chosen for
elimination and letting them burn out
naturally. Some of those lights, he said,
could stay lit for up to 10 years.
"From FPU's viewpoint, they would
end up with still-working lights in the
storage yard" if the city followed its
original plan, Semanisin said. FPU
would give the city a reduced rate with
the new plan, he said.
The city, Semanisin said, has also
begun experimenting with lower

Although it was still not clear
whether it was ever an "official" public
access, city officials agreed Tuesday to
seek a permit to establish an open foot-
path over the dune at Beach Access 19-
S on South Fletcher Avenue.
But, like the famed Hatfields and
McCoys, a family at one end of the
dune walkway still complained anoth-
er family had "destroyed" the dune
when they walked over it to get to the

The footpath over a steep dune off
South Fletcher Avenue has been the
subject of a neighborhood dispute for
several years. Melodie Winston and
her family, who live next to the trail, say
if is being destroyed by irresponsible
beachgoing neighbors. The Millers,
who have a house across the street
and use the footpath, say Winston is
trying to close the path to the public
and keep if for her own family's use.

You're a teenage girl who has run
away from home because of family
problems. A friendly, older man offers
you food and a place to stay. Hungry
and living on the streets, you take him
up on his offer and he lavishes you
with love and attention. After a few
weeks, he asks you to pay him back,
but you have no money. Not wanting
to lose that bond, you're willing to do
anything to please him.
Though that scenario might seem
like fodder for a screenplay, a predator
working in human trafficking
approaches a runaway child roughly
every 30 minutes, according to Robin
Rossmanith, chair of the Northeast
Florida Human Trafficking Task
Rossmanith, members of the FBI
and Department of Children and
Family Services addressed social serv-
ice workers, caregivers and others last
month at the Breakfast Learning
Series at the Yulee office of Family
Support Services of North Florida.
Though Florida has the third high-
est number of human trafficking cases
among U.S. states, collaborative pre-
vention and response efforts between
law enforcement, victim services and
the community are a relatively new
development, at least officially, with
the formation of organizations like the
Northeast Florida Human Trafficking
Task Force in May 2009.
A member of that task force, FBI
Victim Specialist Michelle Thorne,
said many of hep colleagues are sur-
prised to find out about the prevalence
of human trafficking.
"I always hear, when I train mem-
bers of law enforcement: why are we
training on trafficking, it doesn't hap-
pen here," she said. "But geographi-

Bazaar celebrates 50years

Florence Mayer puts the finishing touches
on a crazy quilt.

For 50 years, the Council of Catholic Women at
St. Michael's Catholic Church has held a holiday
One of the ladies responsible for beginning this
tradition is Florence Mayer.
"It was one of the first (bazaars) they had in the
early '50s and mom and her friends were
all very involved with it," said daughter Theresa
"Mom is about the only one who's still alive."
Among the items offered at those early bazaars
that are not seen that much today were handmade
aprons and embroidered pillowcases.
"But we do still have a lot of quilted items. This
will be the third or fourth year that we've done a
crazy quilt and mom does all the hand embroidery
and embellishment on those," said Megna.
Now 96 years old, Mayer continues the tradition
of making Christmas ornaments and quilted items
for the event.
"It's amazing that she still puts pearls on things
and does all that little teeny handwork," said fellow
handcrafter Janet Treadwell.

Originally from Connecticut, Mayer moved to
Jacksonville as a 10-year-old and to Fernandina in
Her husband was a building contractor and she
was a homemaker, raising children Lilly, Jim,
Theresa and Kay in her Amelia Road home.
"It was a wonderful place to grow up in, no
doubt about it. You knew everybody and you felt
safe going anywhere. Of course, there weren't all
the subdivisions out where mom's house is back
then. We grew up with woods behind us," Megna
Now spending part of the year with daughter
Kay Kieferndorf in Milwaukee, Wis., Mayer mails
her creations to St Michael's in the weeks before
she travels down to attend the annual event.
The St. Michael Holiday Bazaar will be open
from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in the parish hall on
Fourth Street.
Available items include baked goods, children's
table, religious items, homemade candy, plants, a
white elephant table and crafts.
There will be raffle baskets to bid on and Donna
Reilly will cater lunch.
For more information please call 261-3472.

Food tips for a safe holiday

TALLAHASSEE With Thanksgiv-
ing just days away, Florida Agriculture
and Consumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson reminds state resi-
dents to follow a few food safety tips to
avoid a holiday celebration resulting in
cases of food-borne illness.
"Everybody enjoys holiday meals,
and with a little care, nothing will mar
the pleasure of the celebration,"
Bronson said. "But food safety measures
are particularly important, especially
with the variety of foods being served,
the number of helpers in the kitchen and
the fact that food is often left out for long
periods of time after being served."
An estimated 76 million people con-
tract food-borne illness in the United
States each year and about 5,000 such
cases are fatal. Young children, pregnant
women, the elderly and those with com-
promised immune systems are the most
vulnerable for contracting such illness.


Fay Shave Coleman
Mrs. Fay Shave Coleman,
age 67, of Callahan, Florida,
passed away the evening of
Monday, November 15, 2010
at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville.
Born in Jacksonville on
September 28, 1943, she was
the daughter of the late
Leighton Causey Shave, Sr.
and Shirley Pickett Shave.
As a young child, Fay and
her family lived in Fernandina
with her grandparents,
Thomas and Florence Shave.
She grew up in Callahan and
graduated from Callahan High
School in the Class of 1961.
While attending high school
rivalry events in the late 1950s,
she met a young man from
Baldwin, James M. Coleman.
In 1961, they were married
and began a 49-year relation-
ship as husband and wife.
After marriage they resided
in Jacksonville for a few years
before returning to Callahan in
the early 1970s.
Mr. and Mrs. Coleman had
three children that filled her
hours as a mother and home-
maker. Her family recalls her
devotion to them as a loving
wife and mother that put the
interest of others above her
own. Mrs. Coleman enjoyed
reading, traveling, cooking
and taking care of her family.
She will be fondly remem-
bered for her generosity, her
intelligence, her beauty, her
wit, and her sparkling per-

Bronson offered
these safety tips:
Sanitize cook-
Sing equipment.
Wash your
S -r hands thoroughly
S-: -- with soap and warm
water before prepar-
ing food and after contact with raw meat,
poultry, seafood and eggs.
Keep raw foods away from cooked
foods to avoid cross-contamination, and
make sure raw meat juices never come
in contact with salads and vegetables.
Defrost the turkey in the refrigera-
tor, or if time is short, it can be defrosted
under cold running water in a matter of
hours. Never defrost the bird at room
temperature as bacteria can rapidly
grow on raw meat at room temperature.
Keep cold foods cold and hot foods
hot, especially when serving buffet style.
Buffet servings should be kept small

sonality, among many other
fine qualities.

and replenished often.
State and federal food safety offi-
cials stress that the turkey should be
cooked to an internal temperature of at
least 165 degrees F, and a food ther-
mometer should be used to verify the
temperature. While many people cook
stuffing inside the bird, officials suggest
it be cooked in a separate'pan because
there is no guarantee that the stuffing
will reach 165 degrees E
Carefully store leftovers. They
should be refrigerated promptly and
should sit out no more than two hours
after coming out of the oven. Slice the
turkey before refrigerating as whole
turkeys do not store safely in the refrig-
erator. Leftovers should be put in shal-
low containers to speed up the cooling
process and prevent bacterial growth.

ing a fire that claimed the fam-
ily's home Monday night.
Shakiah Mason rescued
four toddlers and an infant -
her siblings and a cousin -
from the house as her moth-
er and grandmother tried
unsuccessfully to extinguish
the blaze. The fire destroyed
everything including just-pur-
chased Christmas presents
for the children.
The fire was reported on
Lessie Road about 8:47 p.m.,
and Nassau Fire-Rescue and
volunteer firefighters respon-
ded from Yulee, Hillard,
Callahan, River Road and
Nassau Oaks fire stations.
The house was a complete
loss, Fire Chief Sam Young
said. He said the fire origi-
nated in an electrical outlet
in the bedroom.

that might lead to, the pur-
chase of designer jeans? Or
DNA that helps to create
chocoholics? People's con-
sumer preferences are often
influenced by their genetic
inheritance, according to a
study by a University of
Florida researcher
"Whether we like science'
fiction, hybrid cars, jazz, mus-
tard, opera and dark choco-
late all seem to have a genet-
ic component," said Aneir Sela,
an assistant professor of mar-
keting whose study of twins
is forthcoming in the April
2011 issue of the Journal of
Consumer Research. "On the
other hand, we didn't find
such an effect for abstract art,
body piercing and cilantro,
which people seem to either
love or hate."
While previous research
has shown a heritable effect
for intelligence, personality
and even for divorce, drug
addiction and voting patterns,
this is the first study to show
genetics play a role in con-
sumer choices, Sela said.
"It's interesting to know
that a lot of what we want and
what we do is determined by
our.ancestors," he said.
Sela and Itamar Simonson,
a Stanford University mar-
keting professor, surveyed
110, identical twins and 70
same-sex fraternal twins
about their product prefer-
ences and buying patterns.
Similar choices were more
common in identical twins,
whose genetic coding is iden-
tical, than among fraternal
twins, who share the same
household environment but
only half of their DNA, the
study found.

Wednesday his company and
the city of Fernandina Beach

The new plan still needs
approval from the Florida

before being implemented,
Cutshaw said.
Cutshaw said the plan was

BEACH Continued from 1A
City Attorney Tammi Bach
explained at Tuesday's com-
mission meeting that,
although the city could not
afford $10,000 to build a wood-
en walkover, city staff would
submit a plan to the state
Department of Environmental
Protection for improvements
to the footpath.
Bach also told commis-
sioners that a permit was
necessary because the city
could be fined in the future
for violations of the Beach
Shore and Preservation
City Recreation Director
Nan Volt said the city recently
had a survey done on the
footpath and found that it
strays off the 10-foot public
easement because "the local
community created a path to
the beach."
Commissioner Jeffrey
Bunch said that, although the
beach access has a strange
history, "it's been there forev-
er" and the city should do
"whatever we have to, to keep
the accesses open."
"We've had (beach foot-
paths) in ouir city long before
boardwalks, and they work,"
said Mayor Susan Steger.
Former mayor and city
commissioner Ron Sapp said
he had been involved with
opening the beach accesses
in the 1980s. Sapp told com-
missioners that the state
Department of Natural
Resources (now the Depart-
ment of Environmental
Protection) was concerned
about storm erosion and foot
traffic over the dunes.
'The state said they would
give us money to make sure
that dune system destruction
" must be k)pt-at an'absolute
minimum," Sapp said. He
added that the dune has a
"unique topography" and
therefore must have an dedi-
cated walkway over it.
"I don't think a meander-
ing footpath is going to comply
with what Fernandina Beach
and the state agreed to in the
S1980s," Sapp said. Sapp added
that the city must have an
inventory somewhere of the
beach accesses that were
approved for opening in the
1980s. ,
Bach said city staff had a
document from 1988 stating
that beach access 19-S "was

would be implemented.
Lighting costs in the city
have risen threefold since 2000
because of increasing elec-
tricity charges levied by
Florida Public Utilities.
FPU workers were to begin
a new round of streetlight
removal in December.
According to city project
manager Glenn Semanisin, the
city spent $286,000 last year
on streetlights, traffic signals
and other miscellaneous light-
ing. The streetlight removal
plan was to have saved the city
about $100,000 a year.

not supposed to be open, but
if the DEP says if we can per-
mit it, we can still do it."
"If the DEP says we need a
(wooden) walkover; we'll come
back to the commission,"
Bach said.
Resident William Solomon,
who lives at 1902 South
Fletcher, next to the dune and
footpath, said he had never
made any complaints until "the
dune was destroyed" by neigh-
boring beachgoers. Solomon
also noted that at one time the
dune had "thick, green vege-
"Now the vegetation's
gone," Solomon .said.
"Somebody took it upon them-
selves to destroy it."
Resident Ben Cart, who
also lives near the dune walk-
way, said "laws were mali-
ciously broken" by beachgo-
ers using the footpath. 'They
stepped way across the line...
to wreck this path," he said.
The beachgoers, he said, used
weed killer to deliberately
destroy vegetation. "They're
breaking the law ... nothing
has been done about it," Cart
said. "They have beach access-
es- close by and they should
be utilized."
Resident Donald Beam
said the city needed "defined
access for the people that live
there" so beachgoers would
respect others' property
.The city in September
received a notice from Trey
Hatch of the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection of a possible viola-
tion of the Beach Shore and
Preservation Act.
The notice said the city's
possible violations included
"eradication of native salt tol-
erant vegetation, destruction
of natural dune topography
and eradication of native
gopher tortoise habitat and
Bach told city staff in
October the beach access was
a potential liability. Commis-
sioners at Tuesday's meeting
conceded the city should seek

Workers on Tuesday exchange old stoplights at Lime and South Eighth streets with
new LED stoplights. According to City Engineer Glenn Semnanisin, the Florida
SDepartment of Transportation granted the new lights to the city for all state roads that
run through the city. The new lights will save about 50 perceAt in energy costs,
Semanisin said.

according to officials at the

The Florida Climate Center

La Nifia is a state of the trop-

Traffickers are very mobile.
That makes it difficult for law
Cnifor'cecl nt."
By law human trafficking is
the recruitment, harboring,
transportation, provision or
obtaining of a person through
the use of force, fraud or coer-
cion. It can occur almost any-
where, from the obvious sex
industry to domestic work and
landscaping to bars and restau-
rants, according to the DCE
Fifty percent of all victims
are children, and 80 percent are
women/girls, most just looking
for a better life, or in the wrong
place at the wrong time, Thorne
"If you have someone who
has been recruited, who has
been moved or who is under
the control of someone and
there's an element of force,
fraud or coercion," it's traffick-
ing, Thorne said. "Or if there's
any obligation to pay back a
debt, or they're working under
someone's control without the

Signs towatch for
Possible indicators of human trafficking of children (as out-
lined by DCF). The child:
SShows evidence of physical, mental or sexual abuse
* Cannot or will not speak on their own behalf
* Is not allowed to speak to you alone
S* Is being controlled
* Does not have access to identity or travel documents
* Works unusually long hours and is unpaid or paid very little
* Will not cooperate (for example, gives you wrong informa-
tion about identity and living situation)
Is not in school or has significant gaps in schooling
Lives at his/her workplace with employer or lives with many
people in a small area
Has a heightened sense of fear and distrust of-authority
Has engaged in prostitution or commercial sex acts

ability to leave, you may have
come across a victim of traf-
Many victims are branded
or severely beaten by their cap-
tors, she said, often on their
backside to not diminish their
value as slaves or prostitutes.
Though law enforcement
efforts were initially focused on
international victims, domestic
cases are becoming more conml-
mon, Thorne said.
"A couple years ago, we

were looking at international
victims, and although there is a
large number ... trafficking of
our own U.S. citizens, our own
children, is happening here in
the states," she said.
Considering the number of
runaways in Florida that you do
not see on the street when
you're driving to work, for
example, "it's very scary to
think who might be providing
for these children," said Thorne.
SBut the dark, scary figure in

the alley the one who elicits
the "stranger danger" response
- is not the typical human traf-
ficker, Thorne said. They often
use someone of similar age who
is already under their control
to approach or recruit a victim.
Another method is social
networking sites like Facebook
and MySpace, Thorne said,
where traffickers pose as peers
to lure victims into meeting,
then get them to pose for explic-
it photos or worse.
"Once they're recovered and
we get involved, it's very hard
for me to have to tell a young
female that their explicit pho-
tos are online," said Thorne:
"They have no idea that the traf-
ficker was taking the photos to
post ads ... to bring them clien-
tele. It's a continual victimiza-
tion while those photos are
But traffickers aren't always
hiding behind false benevolence
or using subterfuge on the
"In most of (the DCF cases),
we find the girls are with a
'boyfriend,'" said DCF Program
Administrator Pattie Medlock.
"When we actually find out who

that boyfriend is, it's obvious
it's an adult, a 30-some-year-old
man that is using her to sell sex
through pornography. We've
had quite a few of those'unfor-
tunately. DCF's role in these
cases is child safety."
Thorne said there are also
instances where the victim's par-
ents are active participants -
called homegrown trafficking -
usually to support a drug habit.
"Oftentimes they're exploit-
ing them online or simply giving
the child up to these complete
strangers," she said.
Other parents unknowingly
put their children in danger,
even though they're trying to
help, Rossmanith said.
"Back in the 1980s, we used
to teach a concept called tough
love," she said. "If kids aren't
obeying, kick them out and
they'll come back when they're
ready to follow the rules. Don't
do that. It's absolutely the worst
thing you can do when it comes
to human trafficking.".
And Thorne said even par-
ents who have a strong rela-
tionship with their children can
unwittingly contribute to their

'Traffickers will use any type
of manipulation, any type of
deceptive stories," she said.
"We've seen them posing as a
modeling agency. The parent
goes with the child, and after
gaining the parent's trust, the
parent sends their child there
unsupervised. Photos are being
taken and certain clients are
being brought to the studios, it
can happen in any venue."
All three speakers stressed
the importance of identifying
victims of human trafficking,
which is not always easy.
"Preventing human traffick-
ing starts with us as a commu-
nity," Rossmanith said. "We
need to educate kids. Share with
them some of the stories of how
recruiting is happening. We
need to let them know this is
going on. Our brains, as
teenagers, haven't wrapped
around the fact that we have
dangerous people out there.
Whether it's using movies or
stories or news reports, we
need to educate them. It is hap-
pening in this area. Domestic
and international sex traffick-
ing is happening."

Adkins backs local jobs plan

State Rep. Janet Adkins said
she plans to file legislation in
the upcoming session in
response to issues raised and
ideas discussed at economic
summit meetings she has host-
ed locally.
"We can no longer wait on
Washington D.C., or
Tallahassee to solve our unem-
ployment crisis. It is up to us to
define what we need to move
forward and provide real solu-
tions," Adkins said.
She hosted a second meet-
ing Nov. 9 at her Fernandina
Beach district office to discuss
methods for implementing
ideas presented by the business
community at the first meeting
Oct. 14.
Adkins' goal is to develop a
pilot program for Nassau
County that will create incen-
tives for small business owners
to create one new job each in
the next 12 months.
The discussion centered on
ways to expedite the job cre-
ation process, such as imple-
menting concurrency waivers
and fast-track permitting, sim-
plifying grant applications and
having local representation
from economic development
agencies to assist with making
applications for assistance.
"It is clear that small busi-
ness owners are thejob engine
of this economy,"
Commissioner Barry Holloway
said. "I have proposed the estab-
lishment of a small business
incubator in Nassau County to
help promote the second part of
the American Dream small

ested in the formation of a small
business incubator that will
empower people to launch their
own small business here in the
county," said Adkins.
"We need to examine the
changes necessary to encour-
age small business investment
in new jobs. It is my hope to
create, through a local legisla-
tive bill, a pilot project that will
realign state incentives and eco-
nomic development programs
that impact small business own-
ers. In exchange for accessing
these targeted incentives, I will
ask participating small business
owners to comniit to creating

, ,HI I ,

One of the more men-
tioned articles of late was one
on Generation-Y car buyers.
Looking for material, along
comes a baby boomer article
in the Nov. 16 USA Today that
floored me. While Gen-Y is
fascinating, their parents, the
boomers, are, a staggering
force in the new car market
The 78 million boomers
were born from 1946 to 1964.
Having been a product of
1955, this is my peer group. At
a time when a lot of pocket-
books are closed or budgets
exhausted, the boomers are
still in economic gear. Those
over 50 (67.2 percent of.
boomers) spent $2.9 trillion
last year an increase of 45
percent from 10 years ago.
The 182 million under 50
spent $3.3 trillion, an increase
of only 6 percent.
Looking more specifically
at car purchases last year, the
50-and-over buyers spent $87
billion on cars, compared to
$70 billion for the much larger
under 50 buyers. In the last
three years the average age of
a new car buyer increased
from 52 to 56. If that were a
trivia question,would you
ever guess the average new
car buyer is 56?
Boomers' economic future
looks bright in part because
they are due to inherit an
unprecedented $14-20 trillion
in the next 20 years. With
their life expectancy and
active lifestyle, they are not
projected to pass much on to
their Gen-Y kids. It is now eas-
ier to see why palatial
Mercedes, Lexus and BMW
dealerships exist

Anyone in

should be
as our
boomer pop-
S ulation
stands to
IEFFER'S increase in
CORNER the years
Rick Keffer advise that to
appeal to
Boomers, make them feel
good, hip, smart, sexy, hun-
gry and techie. Many see
themselves reaching 90-plus
and will be spending as they
go. Nassau auto dealers and
other merchants are ready to
be there for our neighbors.
Another interesting bit of.
information I learned this
week had to do with second-
tier used cars. Most dealers
are keeping these older units
to fill a market need and cre-
ate incremental business.
Auto Nation sells them
through Value Vehicle Outlets "
they are rolling out for an
average of $7,800. The Lithia
Auto Group in the Pacific
Northwest has Value Auto lots
with sales prices in the $7,000
to $8,000 average range. The
price of a decent older car is
higher than ever. The half-full
part of me says that makes it a
good time to trade.
Rick Keffer owns and oper-
ates Rick Keffer Dodge Chrysler
Jeep in Yulee. He invites ques-
tions or positive stories about
automobile use and ownership.

Who's minding

the store?;
T he news that an airppi:btteant was
more than $65,000 behind in rent
payment to the city was a shock-
ing reminder of what poor busi-
ness management practices our local gov-
ernment has in place.
This-was all too reminiscent of the city
marina management, where poor oversight
allowed those who rented dock space to fall
months behind in their payments. That sort
of thing led ultimately to the city turning
over its marina to a private company to man-
It also was reminiscent of the city's fail-
ure to oversee its golf course manager a few
years back. City officials couldn't determine
how much of the revenue stream was his,
and how much theirs. That provoked
changes that ultimately ledito the current,, :,
plan to turn over the links .toaprivatemani ...;
And now the airport already saddled
with city officials' meddling with its fixed-
based operator to the point that McGill
Aviation prevailed in a lawsuit that will cost
hundreds of thousands, if not a couple of
million, dollars.
It turns out that Island Aviation, which
pays $3,777.77 a month in rent, is months in
arrears. As of Nov. 1, the avionics and main-
tenance firm owed the city more than
$65,000, though apparently $10,000 of that
has since been paid and a repayment plan is
now in place to catch up the rest.
City Manager Michael Czymbor was
rightly annoyed with Airport Manager
Richard Johnson for failing to inform him of
the mounting debt. We think Johnson
should be summarily sacked for his failure
to keep his boss apprised.
But we have to ask why these failures
keep recurring? Who's minding the store?
City Commissioner Jeffrey Bunch, who
brought the airport debt to Czymbor's atten-
tion, has suggested that the city lacks appro-
priate checks and balances to catch such
problems before they become insurmount-
able. We agree.
Most businesses compile a monthly
aging report to flag delinquent payments
overdue 30, 60, 90 or 150 days. There is
such a report for our city airport. That
report, which we obtained belatedly through
a public records request to the city, revealed
the airport was owed back rents totaling
$87,697 about half of that delinquent more
than 150 days.
That's unacceptable, and it raises this
question: Why isn't another city office the
city controller would be the logical choice -
reviewing these aging reports monthly?
The city manager told commissioners he
"will be reviewing procedures in regards to
the collection of delinquent accounts."
That's good, even if it's closingthe barn
door after the horse is out.
A majority of city commissioners touted
their business experience as reasons to vote
for them, but they continue to enable bad
business practices. Fortunately, the one
commissioner who was a career public,
employee, Bunch, has the common sense to
ask the right questions.

City impact fees levied

n my view the city commission should
immediately suspend enforcement of its
impact fee ordinance. It should also con-
sider appointing outside counsel to exam-
ine the assessing of impact fees and the
administration of the funds generated by the
fees. Let me explain why I think these actions
are necessary.
The authority for impact fees is based in
state and federal law. Impact fees are not
taxes, they are fees for service. In Florida, as
elsewhere, the legal basis for the fees is the
so-called dual rational nexus test. First, there
must be a demonstrable connection or nexus
between the need for capital facilities and the
new development required to pay the fee.
Second, the fee payer must receive a direct
benefit from the payment of the fee.
Impact fees must be held in a separate
account and expended within a reasonable
amount of time to create the new capital facili-.
ties. Those funds are held in trust for the ben-
efit of the fee payers and can only be used to
expand capacity to serve new growth.
The recent dust-up with city restaurants
brings the issue of impact fees to a head ("City
tries to bite the hand that feeds it," Nov. 10,
and "City dishes up heartburn to restaurant
owners," Nov. 12). Put very simply, city admin-
istrators have found that seating estimates in
restaurant owner's city and state forms are
less than the numbers in actual use. City
impact fees for restaurants are charged on the
basis of number of seats. The city conducted a
seat count in local restaurants and estimates
that the undercount would result in additional
impact fees to the tune of almost $800,000.
At a meeting hosted by the local chamber
of commerce and attended by local restaura-
teurs and City Manager Michael Czymbor and
a city planning staff member, Mr. Czymbor
made a number of statements that seem to
indicate a lack of understanding of impact fee

Mr. Czymbor made a number
ofstatements that seem to
indicate a lack ofunderstanding
of impactfee law.

law..He failed to address the dual rational
nexus test entirely and seemed to 'be dealing
with impact fees as simply a tax.
That is, a restaurant with 40 seats on their
form that has grown to 50 seats owes $5,340
based on an impact fee of $534 per seat. He
made no attempt to justify the increase in fees
based on the need for new or expanded facili-
ties. In fact, he acknowledged that the city had
expended $3.5 million to significantly expand
water and sewer capacity. He claimed that this
investment was accomplished at a savings of
$10 million from the original estimate. He did
not explain why, with so much additional
capacity, additional fees were required to fur-
ther expand capital facilities. In short, there
was no indication that Mr. Czymbor under
stood the requirements of the first nexus.
City Utilities Director John Mandrick was
unable to attend the meeting but in a Nov. 12
Viewpoint ("City Utilities Department pushes
forward") he said, "Based on our present flow,
with a 3 percent growth factor we should not
need any new treatment facilities until 2030."
So where is the need for new facilities that
require impact fees? Also, he says one of his
department's goals is to "create a positive
financial return for the city." Is that why he is
so aggressive in assessing impact fees? As a
publicly owned essential service monopoly, I
thought he was supposed to provide service at
It did not get any better on the second

I illegally?

nexus. Mr. Czymbor said clearly that, unlike
the county, the city does not return unexpend-
ed impact fees. "Owners have to ask for them,"
he said. Why? The law requires the funds be
used in a reasonable time, and if not expended
they must be returned and cannot be used for
another purpose. So where are these funds
that are supposed to be held in trust going if
not back to their owner?
In its 2009 session the Florida legislature
further strengthened the requirements for
impact fees by adding the following language
to the state's impact fee law:
In any action challenging an impact fee, the
government has the burden of proving by a
preponderance of the evidence that the impo-
sition or amount of the fee meets the require-
ments of state legal precedent or this section.
The court may not use a deferential standard.
For those not familiar with burden of proof
measures that's a very heavy burden.
The city continues to collect apparently
unwarranted impact fees and administer them
in a way that is not authorized by law. Until the
commissioners and citizens are satisfied that'
city administrators have systems in place to
properly administer the ordinance and the
funds consistent with state and federal law and
reflecting the plant conditions in our commu-
nity, I believe we have no other choice but to
suspend enforcement.
I think it is also appropriate to appoint out-
side special counsel to investigate the adminis-
tration of the law and funds and to return
funds to their rightful owners where appropri-
ate. Along with the broader issues counsel
should investigate where the $10 million in
plant savings went if not back to those paying
impact fees based on the higher number.
Finally, we should permit restaurant owners to
amend their forms as an administrative matter
and at no cost to the owners.

Re: "City dishes up heartburn,"
This has to be^the most unbe-
lievable government attack of recent
time. Let me see if I got this straight
(City Manager Michael)
Czymbor sends his primates out to
Sdo a "seat count." The primates
report back there are more seats
than were originally documented,
so Czymbor in his infinite wisdom
raises fees on the very people that
bring our beloved tourists to our
once beautiful city.
,i ;So, Czymbor, here's what you do
Send your primates back out
with their counting devices (maybe
stones or pebbles or something).
But this time, the primates are told
to count the empty seats.
Have them report back to you
again, only this time, you and your
city cut all the restaurant owners a
check for all the empty seats!
Now that's a plan.
You see, Czymbor, if you only do
it your way, you'll consume all the
resources and you have to pack up
your primates and their counting
devices and move on to the next
city, much like a swarm of locusts.
You see, Czymbor, you just shot
yourself in the foot. Again.
Surely you haven't forgotten the
"Felix issue." Now tend to that foot
wound, again!

Restore the nation
Now that the election is over,
what do you think the Founding
Fathers would say about America, its
present condition and its obscure
future? Perhaps the number one
thing they witnessed was the fact
that America was so divided that
the people were fighting amongst
themselves for their own selfish
interest rather than for the restora-
tion of the nation. We believe, and
history will prove, that it was the
ignorance of what it took to create
America and what it will take to
restore America that has caused the
division in America.
We warn you to not think that
the battle has been won, and the
course of the New World Order has
been altered in any shape or form.
In fact, we believe wholeheartedly
that the switch on the clock of time
has been turned on and the count-
down to the fall of America has start-
ed. The alarm was sounded years
and years ago, but only a few woke
up and tried to prevent what has
taken place in America. They were
isolated by the system, labeled as
extremist, right-wingers, racists, big-
ots, homophobes, isolationists, war-
mongers and so many other nega-
tive labels.
Once again the citizens were
divided and fought amongst them-
selves while all the time America
was rotting away from its core; elim-
inating moral values, ethics, princi-
pals, laws, justice, equality, the
American Dream and much more.
The very heart of America, its
churches, families, workforce and
educational systems, were altered
against the people as a means of de-
Americanizing its citizens.
We are appalled at the ease in

which the corrupted system has
been allowed to flourish and grow in
power. It is now time for you to lis-
ten' to what we wrote in the
Declaration of Independence. Had
you been teaching and trusting in
our words, America would still be
number one. Did your vote show
that you understood, believed and
are choosing to follow our words as
declared in the Declaration of
Independence? Not only was our
intention to separate ourselves from
the tyranny imposed upon us by the
King of Great Britain, but it was to
apply to any future corrupted gov-
ernment that might rise up in tyran-
ny over the citizens of the future
Untied States.of America.
Our intent was to give you the
people the power to alter the gov-
ernment when it ceased to follow
our Constitution and Founding
We have seen a great number of
Americans return to prayer in the
same manner as we did, when we
sought the divine hand of God. We
called upon Him to not only guide
us, but to deliver us from bondage
into freedom. Now you have the
choice to call upon Him once again,
not as the Great Creator, but as the
Great Restorer of Nations.
Prepare yourselves through the
truth for 2012, and be strong enough
in the Lord through faith and trust,
for He has the final vote.

Small Business
You've probably heard of Black
Friday and Cyber Monday, but you
may not be familiar yet with Small
Business Saturday.

This is a new movement this
year, launched by American
Express, to encourage shoppers to
patronize local small businesses on
the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
The Amelia Island-Fernandina
Beach-Yulee Chamber supports
Small Business Saturday as part of
our ongoing Buy Nassau initiative to
promote buying locally.
The significance of small busi-
nesses to the local and national
economy is often overlooked and
underappreciated. According to the
U.S. Small Business Administration,
small businesses represent 99.7 per-
cent of all employer firms in the
country. They accounted for 65 per-
cent of the new jobs created over
the last two decades.
Shopping at locally owned small
businesses has a ripple effect that
benefits the entire community.
According to the 3/50 Project,
which encourages people to sup-
port independently owned busi-
nesses, for every $100 spent at a
local small business, $68 returns to
the community.
Small businesses are the back-
bone of Nassau County. Most local
businesses are owned by people
who live here, are less likely to leave
and are more invested in the com-
munity's future. They provide crit-
ical support to local nonprofit organ-
izations, including schools,
churches and youth sports teams.
And they help define the unique
character ofp.ur communities.
So, when you're out shopping
Saturday, Nov. 27, think small, think
local and Buy Nassau for the holi-

Swimmers thank Optimists
The Fernandina Beach High School Swim
Team is so lucky to have the support of the
Fernandina Beach Optimist Club! We were cho-
sen to be given their support in our primary
fundraiser, a Low Country boil held Oct. 8. This
was a huge success and we cannot thank the
members of the Fernandina Beach Optimist

Club enough.
Through their efforts and outstanding culi-
nary skills, our swim team raised money and
many, many community members feasted on a
deliciously prepared shrimp, sausage, corn and
potato dinner! More than 200 tickets were sold
and supporters were given drive-up service at the
Kelley Pest Control facility.
In a time when every group is looking to sup-

plement their tight budgets, it is so refreshing to
know that there are organizations as generous
as the Fernandina Beach Optimist Club, which
put their muscle and "secret recipe" behind their'
support of our youth.
Our thanks to all of the Optimists for their
help and generosity.

Thanksgiving and unity among our churches

A ss we approach
Thanksgiving, I'm aware of
so many things to give
thanks for; one of which is
our community. It really is a great
place to live. For me and my family,
many wonderful and difficult things
have happened here. We've married
a daughter, we've buried a daughter.
We've laughed, we've cried and
everything in between. We've
walked the beaches, eaten great
food, caught huge fish and lost a
few, but most importantly, we've
grown to love the people who call
this place home.
While recently pondering the
great stuff this community has to
offer, I couldn't help but thank God
for all the wonderful churches.
Actually, from heaven's perspective,
there's really only one church with

several different
meeting places, but
that's another arti-
cle altogether. In
S either case, I'm
grateful for what
our community
f has. Yes, each con-
gregation may wor-
ship differently, but
t ULPIf at the end of the
NOTES day, if it's genuinely
thy bringing people
closer to God
Pastor through Jesus
Rob Goyette Chrjst, I'm for it.
I like to think of
the diversity of our churches like
that of the 12 tribes of Israel. Though
they all belonged to one family and
were under the same covenant, they
were extremely diverse one from the

other. They had different names, dif-
ferent banners that they rallied
Sunder and different things that they
emphasized that ultimately brought
balance and wholeness to the nation
at large. When they respected and
celebrated their diversity, the bless-
ing of the Lord rested upon them.
A good example of that is seen in
Israel's wilderness wanderings.
While in route to the promised land,
when each tribe pitched its tent in its
prescribed area, the entire encamp-
ment was in the shape of the cross. I
find that amazing.
With the tabernacle of Moses in
the middle of the camp, and the vari-
ous tribes positioned in their rightful
place, the testimony of the cross
was seen by all the surrounding
nations. The impact of that was so
great that when Balaam, who sought

to curse Israel, saw their encamp-
ment in the shape of the cross, he
ended up having to bless them
instead. (Numbers chapter 2 and
Numbers 24:1-9)
Here's what that says to me.
When each of us is in our place,
doing what we are supposed to be
doing, a true representation of who
Jesus is can be seen by others.
Instead of competing with each
other, we are actually completing
each other. As a pastor, I find that not
only liberating, but powerful if we as
a community of believers can ever
fully grasp it.
That said, I'd like to personally
extend an invitation to you who read
this column to participate in this
year's communitywide Thanksgiving
service. It will take place on Tuesday
night at 7 p.m. it.Amelia Baptist

Church. The church is located catty-
corner to Harris Teeters in Amelia
City near the new roundabout. It's a
wonderful way to not only stop and
thank God for this great country, but
also for this community.
As a side benefit, as we come
together in Christian unity, celebrat-
ing our diversity, I believe the saving
message ofthe cross will be revealed
in a way that individually we can
never fully express.
"I want all of them to be one with
each other, just as I am one with You
and You are one with Me. I also want
them to be one with us. Then the
people of this world will believe that
You sent Me." (Jesus' words found in
John 17:21)

The main draw of the second annual
Ravenswood Winery Amelia Island
Futures Championships, a USTA Pro.
Circuit event continues at the Omni
Amelia Island Plantation. The Plantation is
hosting the tournament at the resort's 23-
court Racquet Park through Sunday.
American hopefuls include three 18-
year-olds-Jack Sock, last year's Amelia
Island singles champion, who captured
the 2010 U.S. Open boys' singles title,
becoming the first American to win the
event since Andy Roddick in 2000; Denis
Kudia, who recorded his first ATP World
Tour match victory in July in Newport,
RI.; and Andref'Collarini, who trains at the
USTA Training Center Headquarters in
Florida and reached the finals in the 2010
French Open boys' singles final.
Also competing are Robbye Poole, a
former University of Mississippi All-
American who claimed titles at two USTA
Pro Circuit Futures events this summer;
and another 18-year-old, fourth-seed
Jordan Cox, the highest ranked American
in this year's tournament and 2009
Wimbledon boys' singles finalist, who won
his first professional title this year.
"It is good to be back on Amelia
Island," said Sock, who returned to defend
his title. "I am going to try to do it again
and I will be making a run for it."
Howeve-r, he will be challenged bythe
high quality of the field reflected by the
fact that Sock was not even seeded.
A wheelchair tennis exhibition, fea-
turing Jacksonville's Rudy Chavarria and
Dale Jackson, will be a special addition to
the tournament. The wheelchair exhibition
is scheduled in for Sunday at 11 a.m. on
center court, followed by the singles final.

be quite different.
Surgical treatment for ACL tears in an
adult often involves harvesting from the
body a piece of tendon and its attached
bone blocks and using that tissue as a
graft to take the place of the torn ACL.

making dime-sized drill holes through
the bone above and below that make up
the knee joint. The graft is then passed

hit that big buck.
'The next morning I
began to track that big buck
when my cousin Turk
Johnson called me and told
me he had found my deer

had hit the deer."
HIagins' big buck had eight
points and weighed 150

the play in mind for ACT's

"I read it three or four
years ago and thought, That's
really funny.' We didn't think
we could accomplish itbat the
small theater, so we set it
aside," she said. "Finally when
we built the new theater, we
thought, 'Let's read it again
and see if we can do it.' And
we decided we could.
"I knew that it was going to
be a huge challenge, and dif-
ferent from any other play I'd
directed before," she added.

this is an ideal project for

any questions about the

to contact Redbones Dog

McClane said she thinks
audiences will enjoy following
the clues the play drops as its
characters' stories converge.
"I hope they have just a
really good time laughing. I
hope they relax and let the
scenes tell the story," she
said. "The enjoyment will
increase as they learn more
and remember more from
what they've just seen."
Ultimately, McClane said,
the play serves as a hysterical
reminder that even the good
old days had their bad times.
"We always think of 1952
as this more innocent, pros-
perous time- but we had the
McCarthy hearings afid the
H-bomb tests," she said. "It's
kind of interesting to remem-
ber back."

We would like to plant some

A .The best advice I can

start small by making
changes to the front yard

the owners and those in the

zone 9a. It would not be pru-
dent to purchase tropical
plants, which are grown in
zones 10-11, as they are not
able to tolerate our colder
Always consider the poten-
tial mature height and spread
of the plant and make
allowances. One common
mistake made by homeown-
ers is to plant trees and
shrubs too close to each
other. This gives a full look
initially but the plants will suf-
fer in a few years by not hav-
ing enough root and branch
area. Planting trees and
shrubs the proper distance
from the house and each
other will also reduce the
need to constantly prune.
Be sure to determine how
much sunlight the plant will
tolerate. When plants are in
the wrong place they suffer
and never look their best.
Regarding lawn grass, consid-
er over seeding now with
annual rye and wait until
spring to spend money on
planting grass. Please call me
at 491-7340 or (904) 879-1019
to set up an appointment so
we can discuss appropriate
plant selections. I do not pro-
vide formal landscape design
but I can steer your family in
the right direction.
Q What is-wrong with my
.citrus tree? I see little
white flies whenever I get
near the fruit or leaves. I
turned some of the leaves
over and saw these orange
specks. Is this an insect or a
S .Actually the orange
spots you see are nei-
ther an insect nor a disease.
The spots are beneficial fungi
that attack the young station-
ary stage (pupae) of a com-
mon citrus pest called the
white fly.
The white fly is an impor-
tant pest of many fruits and
vegetables as well as orna-
mental plants. In large com-
mercial plantings of citrus, cit-
rus whitefly and
cloudywinged whitefly are
largely controlled in 'ainy
weather by whitefly fungi.
Some important species are
the red fungus (Aschersonia
aleyrodis Webber) and the

brown fungus (Aegerita web-
beri Fawcett). A yellow fun-
gus, Aschersonia goldiana,
does not attack the citrus
whitefly, but is very effective
against the cloudywinged
The presence of the yellow
fungus guarantees that
cloudywinged whitefly is pres-
ent. These fungi are generally
present in all citrus groves in
Florida and increase.in inii- "
bers when the proper envi-
ronmental conditions prevail.
These fungi are commonly
referred to as "friendly fungi,"
and the two major species are
often referred to as red
Aschersonia and yellow
This is another example of
leaving things alone and let-
ting nature take its normal
.course of action. We would
not recommend any chemical
application as the fungi are
probably managing the white
fly population quite well. This
information was taken from a
publication titled, "Your
Dooryard Citrus Guide:
Common Pests, Diseases and
Disorders of Citrus" by James
J. Ferguson from the
UF/IFAS. Visit
Ihave yellow edges on
.my sago palm. What
could be wrong with it? JD
A The sago palm appears
*to be deficient in magne-
sium. It may be that the soil in
which the cycad is planted is
also magnesium deficient. It
might be beneficial to add
magnesium sulfate around
the base of the cycad and
throughout the canopy area.
Pull any mulch from around
the base of the cycad, add the
supplement, irrigate to get
the product to the root area
and place the mulch back.
Remember, no tree, shrub,
palm or cycad should have
mulch piled up against the
base of the trunk. This inap- ,
propriate practice can cause
fungal decay along the trunk
tissue, permanently damaging
the plant. Keep an area, about
a shovel's width, around the
base of any tree or shrub free
of mulch.
