25 cents each, sewing for the bazaar,
dancing in the follies, sponsoring

Fernandina Beach Commissioners
have agreed overall that a waterfront
committee should not be disbanded,
but its purpose needs to be more clear-
Vice Mayor Tim Poynter had sug-
gested the committee's work was done
and it should be "sunsetted" because
its purpose had been fulfilled
The discussion came as city,staff
and commissioners discussed possible
changes to city boards and commit-
tees at a special workshop Nov. 16 at
Part of the discussion centered on
the Waterfronts Partnership
Committee, which has been strug-
gling over the past several months to
find an identity. Commissioners decid-
ed in a previous workshop that the
number of members on the committee
should be reduced from 11 to seven.
At one point in the past year, it was also
suggested the committee should be
The ad hoc committee is part of
the Waterfronts Florida Partnership
Program, a division of the state
Department of Community Affairs,
and was formed in 2005 to address
the problems of working waterfront
In a presentation with staff sug-
gestions for committee changes, city
Community Development Director
Marshall McCrary noted the water-
fronts board could merge with other
committees or change its focus to the
Redevelopment Area, the historic
downtown and/or the city marina.
But Poynter suggested again the
waterfionts group be disbanded. He
said the group was tasked to create a
city waterfront plan, which it has
"We have the plan, but we don't
have the money (to implement the
plan)," he said. "Are you talking about
what you hope to do some day when
we have the money? I'm just curious
how you see the role (of the commit-
Lou Goldman, former chair of the
waterfronts group, said the purpose of
the committee wasn't just to do the
waterfront plan. He added that,
because the city had decided to keep
the boat ramp where it is, the water-
front park plan would have to be re-
done anyway. He also suggested the
group could work with the marina to
address its operations, and could also
handle the CRA since "it's mostly
McCrary said he saw "great bene-
fits" in the waterfronts group's asso-
ciation with the CRA. "The city has
been remiss in communicating with
property owners about (the CRA's)
development options," he said.

Pilings under Bretts to be studied
City commissioners approved Nov. 16
the transfer of $7,000 from the general
fund to the marina fund for a structural
analysis of the pilings under Brett's
Waterway Cafe, but declined to transfer
$35,000 for repairs to the infrastructure
until the analysis is done.
According to City Engineer Glenn
Semanisin, the structure underneath the
pilings holding up Bretts's Waterway Caf6
has deteriorated badly, and chunks of con-
crete are falling into the water.
The building now occupied by the
restaurant was built in 1988 over concrete
beams that originally held up the "tepee"
welcome center built in 1962.
Semanisin also said fuel lines under the
old pilings, that run from fuel dispensers to
the water, may be damaged by broken pil-
According to Semanisin, the Centre
Street Restaurant Group, which owns
Brett's Waterway Caf6, hired the Haskell
Co. in 2000 to perform a structural study,
which showed the pilings needed repair,
but repairs were never made.
Semanisin wrote in an email, "The city
hired HCI to provide an independent struc-
tural study, which indicated various repairs
were needed" in 2004. The Restaurant
Group and the city together funded the
cost of piling repairs in 2006.
In a July letter to the restaurant group,
Semanisin wrote that "the structural
concrete pilings and beams which support
the building currently occupied by
Brett's Waterway Cafe are experiencing
significant cracking and loss of concrete.
This type of problem in reinforced con-
crete beams can lead to sudden failure of
the major support components of a build-
However, an Aug. 5 letter from the
restaurant group to Semanisin states "a
review of our files indicates the matter you
discuss was dealt with by the city and
Centre Street Restaurant Group Ltd. in
2005; ... We paid our proportional share, as
requested, upon receipt of your invoice
dated May 4, 2006."
An Aug. 12 letter from the restaurant
group states the city "entered into a con-
tract with Worth Construction for repairs
to the entire substructure. The scope of the
work was designed, supervised, and paid
for by the city. The project was completed
at a total cost of $334,880.....CSRG paid 48
percent of this amount, or $160,742 in May
Article 15 of the city lease with Brct's,
written in 1997, states the restaurant group
must "keep and maintain the buildings,
piers, pier foundations, docks and struc-
tures located on the lease parcel clean,
orderly, and in a good state of repair."
Commissioner Eric Childers at the
meeting urged commissioners to hold off
on another budget transfer of $35,000 to
make repairs on the marina fuel line sys-
"We're not taking on this survey light-
ly," said City Attorney Tammi Bach at the
"We could file a lawsuit or do the work
and seek a reimbursement," Bach said.
"But we don't want to tie it up in litigation
... it would be a safety issue for visitors."

Nassau County portion of this
aquatic preserve that will
require a consent of use letter.
Adkins' office has worked
to ensure that all dock owners
affected have received the infor-
mation to comply with the law.
DEP has also sent letters to
each dock owner and held
office hours in Yulee in
September and October to work
with the dock owners and pro-
vide the necessary information
to comply with the law.
"It is now the responsibility
of the dock owners to ensure
that the requirements of the leg-
islation are met and the appli-
cation is submitted by the Dec.
31 deadline to be eligible to
receive the consent of use letter
by the DEP," Adkins said.
Adkins and DEP officials
reached a compromise earlier
The Nassau County
Commission did not hold its
regularly scheduled meeting
this past Monday due to the
death of Commissioner Danny
Leeper's wife Sunday.
The meeting, which includ-
ed several public hearings, has
been rescheduled for next
Monday at 6 p.m. The public
hearings will commence at 7
p.m. The meeting will be held in
the commission chambers at
the James S. Page
Governmental Complex, 96135
Nassau Place, Yulee.
I at the
194 Nassau County docks require a consent
letter from the state.
this year. that was beneficial to-
the majority of Nassau County
dock owners in the aquatic pre-
serve. A new state law will pro-
tect over 80 percent of the
Nassau County dock owners
residing in the 'Nassau River-
St. Johns River Marshes
Aquatic Preserve, which
extends south from A1A and
east from US 17 in Nassau
County to the St. Johns River
and includes portions of the
Nassau and Amelia rivers.
The legislation allows all
existing Nassau County docks
in the Nassau County-St. Johns
County Marshes Aquatic
PrTerve with a cumulative ter-
minal platform area of 800
square feet or less (excluding
the walkway or gangway) to be.
exempt from a permit and
allowed to apply for a consent of
use letter with the DEP. Docks
in excess of 800 square feet will
have to be modified to bring the
cumulative terminal platform
area to 800 square feet or less so
that a consent of use letter can
be applied for with the DEP

usual? If committees get off track, how does
anyone get them back on track?'
HISTORIC DISTRICT COUNCIL
BOARD Continued from 1A
Another discussion was
about possibly combining the
Peck Center Committee with
the Parks & Recreation
Parks & Recreation
Director Nan Voit noted the
Peck Committee's tasks have
"been done for years," there-
fore there is little participa-
tion and rarely a quorum
when the committee meets.
"If we (keep the Peck) com-
mittee, we definitely need a
task," she said.
Voit suggested that some
of the dedicated members of
the Peck Committee could
join the Parks & Rec commit-
tee. But Mayor Susan Steger
said the Peck Committee was
"an important voice in our
city's minority neighborhood."
A discussion also came up
about the possibility of the city
commission taking over the
duties of the Planning
Advisory Board. McCrary
said that, if the commission
took on the PAB's activities, it
would reduce the timeline for
processing applications for
land use and rezoning. But
commissioners conceded it
would be best to keep the
board as is.
Suanne Thamm, a mem-
ber and former chair of the
Historic District Council,
appeared dissatisfied after the
workshop, complaining that
several issues regarding com-
mittees had never been
addressed by any of the work-
shops. She said she was con-
cerned with issues such as
member obligations, recruit-
ment of members and expec-
tations, among other things.
"Is it just going to be flying
by the seat of our pants, as
usual?" Thamm asked. "If
committees get off track, how
does anyone know about them
to get them back on track?"
City Clerk Mary Mercer
said she had been working on
a board appreciation event,
board training and a manual
for new board members.
It was also agreed that the
Airport Advisory Committee
should remove its establish-
ment from the Land
Development Code, so it could
be established by resolution
or ordinance. According to
McCrary, this would make it
easier for the committee .to
make changes to its member-
ship and .its functions.
City Manager Michael
Czymbor suggested each
board or committee submit a
quarterly report to city staff
Commissioners did not dis-
cuss any significant changes
to the Board of Adjustment,
the Historic District Council
or the Technical Review
Committee, although they
conceded they would like to
establish specific disciplines
or backgrounds for member-
ship in some committees.

An irreverent look at Paradise
I have been quite startled to dis-
cover that I have written over 200 City
Sidebar columns since May of 2002.
You have Foy Maloy to thank for that.
He and I joined forces to become the
PR team for the initial Book Island
Festival, now renamed the Amelia
Island Book Festival. We worked
together quite well during the long
summer of 2001, and grew to respect
one another's talents and abilities.
Foy was a real trooper and kept
right on going to work every day when
the festival was over, but I gave myself
a well-deserved vacation. Upon my
return from my misadventures, I pre-
.sented him with an essay about my
Day of Heck somewhere in Kentucky.
He liked it. Since he was already
familiar with my work ethic and the
energy I throw into whatever I'm doing,
he asked me to become a part of the
I was off and running, writing about
life in Paradise. I wrote about the little
things that annoy and intrigue us, like
hostile coffee makers, underwear that's
smarter than we are and critters that
squeak and growl in their sleep.
My friends and
fans have been after
mie for the last sev-
,," oeral years to gather
... up these columns
"" and put them
S-......I between two covers.
I started that project
several times, but
~ something always
CITY came tip. Like Joan
SIDEBAR Cory, one of our tal-
enlted local poets,
said in "Memorial
Cara Curtin Day Celebration,"
"Thirty years ago I
got ready for a life that didn't turn out
as planned." Aging parents and puppy
dogs, murder mysteries, adventures
with my Adult Supervision and life in
general got between me and that elu-
sive book of columns.
City Sidebar 7he Book will be on the
shelves at Books Plus by the first part
of December, just in time to be your
favorite stocking stuffer. I plan to give
a copy to each of my out-of-town friends
so they can read about life in Paradise
- and become jealous.
No man is an island,
and the only island we
women have is usually
smack-dab in the middle
of the kitchen.
Some famnlous dead person once
said that no man is an island, and heav-
en knows, the only island we women
have is usually smack-dab in the mid-
dle of the kitchen. It's obvious that I
didn't get this project done by myself.
I've already blamed Foy Maloy for
having the bright idea of the column in
the first place, and I must give Editorr
Michael Parnell kudos for keeping llme
and the columnn within the API guide-
lines. And then there's Andrew, my
Adult Slupervision, who does all of the
grownup things so I can scribble to
lmy hearIt's content. Thanks go to Cindy
Glenn and her eagle eye for a good
store y; you have enjoyed more Ithan OIne'
of my columns because of her news-
Emily Carmain (www.notewor-
thyediting.comn) is a good friend and a
great book editor. Look her up if you
have a masterpiece gathering dust.
Emily introduced me to Caroline
who formatted the interior of the book,
took the cover photograph and
designed the cover itself. She'll take the
mlan1uscripl that you and Emily have
edited and will make it look like a mil-
lion dollars. I couldn't have produced
City Sidebar: The Book without the help

But none of the above would have
happened without you, Gentle Reader.

Reasons to be thankful
Thanksgiving is a tradition
as old as our country, and a
darn good one. Everyone has
reasons to be thankful and too
often we don't embrace the
chance to recognize what is
going right. My intent will be
to be general in this short list.
Let's start with:
1. We live in Nassau
County, Florida, USA. Pick
the county, the state or the
country, and tell me we aren't
blessed. Looking at tags from
all over the Eastern United
States, we see people willing
to spend lots of money to
arrive at a destination we call
home. Are we thankful for the
2. Our family it is the
start of the big three in my
book. See numbers 3 and 4 for
the rest of what constitutes
true wealth. Family parents,
siblings, children and extend-
ed family is part of who we
are. To the extent that our
family is part of our life, let's
3. Our friends in most
cases this is a small and
important group of people in
our life. They understand us,
we understand them, and
their value can't be underesti-
mated. When we need them,

5) A change of seasons,-
November usually brings the
first real taste of fall to our
area. Our mild winters requir-
ing sweaters, and not parkas,
are reason to be thankful.
6) Holiday decorations -
houses and businesses
announce the coming of a spe-
cial time of year. When else
do you see all the adornment
in celebration of this time of
year? It sets the mood for
Which we should be thankful.
7) For all those people at
work on holidays. Police, fire-
fighters, military, hospital
staff, pilots and many others
sacrifice family time to keep
the world rolling. For all of us
who benefit, we are thankful.
8) For freedom probably
the most taken for granted
privilege we all enjoy. Watch
the news, get on the Internet
or read about other countries
that don't have our basic
liberties. A good time of year
to think about it and be thank-
9) For traditions -this
time of year, mostly families
and occasionally friends have
traditional rituals enjoyed year
after year. They are special
and reason to be thankful.
10) Food the great eating
season has begun. Turkey,
ham, cakes, pies, cookies and
all the special recipes that cre-

VIEWPOINT/ADRIENNE DESSY/CITY OF FERNANDINA BEACI 1
Sustainable Fernandina:'being wise with resources'
Sustainability is a word you
hear a lot these days, as are
phrases like "Going Green,".
"Live Simple" or "Green
Living." But what does it all
It may mean different
things to different people, but
the most common definition
of sustainability is from the
World Commission on Envi-
ronment and Development
Report (1987), which states
that sustainable development
is "development that meets
the needs of the present with-
out compromising the ability
of future generations to meet
their own needs." In the
United States, President
George W. Bush defined sus-
tainable as meaning "to create.
and maintain conditions,
under which humans and
nature can exist in productive
harmony, that permit fulfilling
the social, economic and other
requirements of present and
future generations of
Americans." So while you may
hear a variety of ways to
describe it, being sustainable,
or green, addresses a basic
principle being wise with
resources now, so those
resources are still available in
Like many other cities in
Florida and across the nation,
the city of Fernandina Beach
is trying to work sustainability
into its mission. While sustain-
ability is often associated with
environmentalism, that is just
one part of the bigger picture.
Economic and social parts are
just as important to consider,
and it is the city's responsibili-
ty to take a critical look at our
operations to see if we are
functioning sustainably in all
three of these areas. One way
the city is trying to accom-
plish this is through
"Sustainable Fernandina," a
group of city employees from
each department who meet
each month to discuss and
identify ways the city can
work towards increasing sus-
arose 6ut of a partnership
with the city of Cedar Key to
work on making our histori-
cally linked cities linked in a
new way by addressing sus-
tainability within our commiu-
nities. The Fernandina group
has been meeting since
February of this year, and has
defined the following mission:
"Sustainable Fernandina is
an appointed group of city
employees, representing each
city department, that is com-
mitted to discovering and pro-
moting ways to conserve
resources, reduce energy
costs, decrease waste, protect
and strengthen the local econ-
omy and save money through-
out the city of Fernandina
Beach's governmental opera-
From major planning proj-
ects, to how we perform daily
tasks and manage facilities,
Sustainable Fernandina and
the city of Fernandina Beach
are working to integrate sus-
tainable practices into how we
function and serve the com-
So far, the group has
worked together to identify
tangible sustainability goals
that should not only help
reduce the city's environmen-
tal impact, but hopefully can
also contribute to more
resource efficient operations
within the city. To start, the
group looked at what each
department is already doing
that could be considered a
sustainable practice, such as
use of energy-efficient lighting
and electronics, recycling
and utilizing electronic com-
munication more than paper-
based communication. This
information, in addition to
other news, has been posted
on the Sustainable Fernandina
After reviewing existing
Fernandina identified specific
goals which focus on ways the
city can become a more sus-
tainable local government in
2010-11, such as establishing a
city-wide recycling center for
the community, reaching out
to city employees regarding
sustainable practices, evaluat-
ing the recently adopted city
purchasing policy for ways to
reduce costs and purchase
more sustainable items and
transitioning city boards and
committees from paper to
The group is proud to
report that the recycling cen-
ter is now open at South Sixth
Street Extension and Lime
Street, and the rollout to mov-
ing our boards and commit-
tees to electronic agenda

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
Dissolve city govern
The time has come for the
city of Fernandina Beach to dis-
solve itself and turn government
services over to Nassau County.
The ongoing mismanagement
demonstrates either a lack of
understanding of the laws and
constitutions of Florida and the
United States or disdain for city
residents and taxpayers, or both.
Consolidation of government
services would benefit the citi-
zens of Fernandina Beach and
ultimately allow it to thrive into
'the tourist destination it
deserves to be. Rather ti.in
working for Ihe people, gov-
ernment has worked against the
people creating a negative anti-

I quality time
r together this
business, anti-citizen environ-
ment. We have now come to the
point that investment in proper-
ty or businesses within the city
jurisdiction is deemed too risky
and too expensive to be worth
Below are 10 reasons why
Fernandina Beach should cease
to act as a legal entity:
1. Imposition and application
of arbitrary and capricious rules
to deny property owners legal
use of their property to the
extent gnia'arnteed by the con-
2. Imnplementation and col-
lection of impact fees with com-
plete disregard to the rational
dual nexus standard, resulting
in an illegal taxation and prop-
erty rights exaction.
3. Arbitrary and capricious
application of the Florida
Building Code and imposition of
onerous fees that contravene
FS Chapter 489.
4. Intent to create a City
Magistrate, in clear violation of
the Florida Constitution Article
V Section 1.
5. Imposition of unnecessary
rules on small businesses with
callous disregard for the costs
and financial havoc wrought on
the business owner.
6. Demand that small busi-
nesses name the city of
Fernandina Beach as a certifi-
cate holder on insurance poli-
cies, when state law does not
require insurance in order to
conduct business and further-
more the city has no insurable
interest to protect.
7. Engaging is expensive and
fruitless litigation to the detri-
ment of taxpayers, even when
faced with overwhelming..evi,
dence that the city is wrong.
8. Engaging in business
enterprises such as water and
sewer utility, golf, marina oper-
ation and other functions which
could be more properly and effi-
ciently run by the private sector.
9. Imposition of illegal water
and sewer utility fees that a pri-
vate run monopoly would not
be allowed to impose if regulat-
ed under the Public Service
10. Failure to efficiently and
effectively curtail the budget
during the worst economic
slump since the Great
Depression to the fiscal detri-
ment of all its citizens.
To make it easy for the com-
mission I have even written the
Whereas the City of

edly failed to respect the U.S.

The book on
a dog's life
His name was Charlie. Before him was
Rufus. They were blond cocker spaniels.
I've been wondering about them: What
they would have said if they had written
their own books.
Yes, I know, dogs can't write books. But
a dog named Bailey did, at least through the
mind of his human friend, W. Bruce
Cameron. The name of Bailey's book is A
"4 Dog's Purpose is the remarkable story
of one endearing dog's search for his pur-
pose over the course of
several lives," a blurb on
the book says. "More than
just another charming dog
story, A Dog's Purpose
touches on the universal
quest for an answer to
life's most basic question:
Why are we here?"
Well, I can tell you why
FROM Charlie and Rufus were
THE here. They were here to
HOw n make us laugh, to make us
feel better when we'd had
OFFICE a bad day, to provide enter-
.....- tainment for friends and
neighbors, to protect us.
Ph il The protection part was
Hudgins way down on the list, but
both of them knew how to
bark when they sensed danger.
Charlie and Rufus were alike in many
ways. They were both a bit ditsy. One day,.
Rufus rolled over for a belly-scratching ses-
sion and tumbled right off a wall to the
driveway three feet below. Unlike cats, dogs
don't always land on their feet.
Rufus was prone to seizures and took
medicine by mouth every day to prevent
them except on.the occasion when he sur-
reptitiously hid the pill under his tongue
and spit it out later.
Charlie barked at rocks. Don't ask me
why. He just didn't like some rocks. But he
loved tennis balls, and he would run as fast
as he could, apparently racing an imaginary
opponent, trying to capture a thrown ball.
During one chase, he sailed off a six-foot-
high embankment and threw his back out.
He was laid up for days.
"But I don't regret any stupid things I
did," he would have said in his book.
Rufus probably had one regret. It was
the time he chased a goose that had invad-
ed his territory, and the bird bit him on the
nose. But other than that and perhaps the
time he attacked a fish hook he had no
regrets. Dogs are like that. They live and
they don't look back.
So what would Charlie and Rufus have
said to us human beings?
First, they would've encouraged us to
lighten up and enjoy life. We all make mis-
takes, but we don't honor our Maker by wal-
lowing in guilt. If you mess up, put your tail
between your legs and ask for forgiveness.
And then go on with your head high.
Be loyal to your friends. You don't have
to use words. Just be there when someone
needs a pal.
Do not judge. You don't know what oth-
ers have been.through.
Finally, serve others. It may be in small
ways, but each of us can serve. And that,
dear human beings, is the purpose of life.

SDeep fried TV to heal a sick man
So there I was, laid up in bed and on the
sofa for two weeks with a nasty case of
bronchitis, complicated by a touch of
pneumonia not to be confused with
oldcmonia, which only elderly people get. Oh
yeah, and an asthma attack, which my doctor
tells me, to my chagrin, that not only kids
have, but adults can also develop it later in life.
Come to think of it, maybe he did say I had
oldmonia. My coworkers pleaded and cajoled
with me to keel) my germy self at home. One
even threatened to report me to the Centers
for Disease Control if I came within two miles
of the office until all the hacking, wheezing,
glurping, sneezing and honking is a dim and
So what do you do with two weeks of sick
leave when you can't leave the house and feel
too crummy to get out of bed or off the sofa?
Well, I watched so many re-runs of The
Sopranos I do a pretty fair Italian-Jersey-mob-
bish accent thingy now. And by the time I was
starting to consider whacking all the well-
wishers who kept calling and interrupting my
medication-induced naps to ask how I was feel-
ing and generally getting only hoarse,
slurred mumbles in reply -1 fortuitously
surfed into the Food Network, aka the cook-
ing channel, one fine afternoon.
There are as many cooks on the cooking
channel as there are recipes. There's one witty
wag who keeps saying, "Now that's good .
eats." Interesting and funny but he tends to
ramble off into food trivia and minutiae, which
my brain, basting in a prescribed sweet red
sauce of cough syrup with codeine, had a little
And then there's the
Famous food maven from
Charleston or Savannah or
wherever who deep fries
everything in her kitchen. I
mean everything. Fried
Peanut and butter jelly sand-
wiches hot out of the oven
and heavily dusted with pow-
CUPOF dered sugar, garnished with
JOE a generous dollop of whip-
..... ping cream. And who can
resist French re-fried donuts.
Joe Palmer As if donuts weren't already
listed high among the branches of forbidden
fruits, this chef takes epicurean mortal sin to
new lows, for after she whips up this mouth-
melting gooey morsel of pure yet sure coro-
nary occlusion, she tops it off with a fat serv-
ing of French vanilla ice cream. Please pass
the chest paddles.
Moving right along, there's the chirpy little
Italian-American chef who chatters away at 90
miles an hour -with gusts up to 120 all the
while whipping up mouth watering meals on
the cheap in her studio kitchen. Great recipes,
easy to make, and easy on the eyes, I could
only take so many minutes of watching her
theatrically roll her eyes and gush, "Mmmmm-
mm. Delish!" Then I began to fantasize about
calling Tony Soprano and asking hini how
much it would cost me to get a TV chef
And what would haute cuisine be without
that merry prankster down in the French

Wednesday Brown Bag
Lunch Lecture Series on
Dec. 1 at noon. This month
features Edgar Johnson dis-
cussing the Great Florida
Land Rush. In 1860 Florida
was still the smallest state in
the Union, but it had grown
from less than 10,000 inhabi-
tants in 1821 to a population
of 140, 424 by the time of the
1860 census. When the U.S.
acquired the Territory of
Florida in 1821, it had fewer
inhabitants than at any time
since European discovery in
1513. Florida had grown from
the wild Southern frontier to
an agricultural powerhouse,
and the story of its growth is
the story of the settling of the
frontier. This program is free
and open to the public. For

Members of the Board of Directors of the Wild Amelia Nature Festival recently
toured the Rayonier forest nursery and the mill in Fernandina Beach to learn about
the Sustainable Forestry Initiative and the mill operations, especially the bio-mass
boiler. The former is a program to replant woodlands and preserve habitat for
endangered species on Rayonier land; the bio-mass boiler reduces Rayonier's carbon
footprint significantly by eliminating or reducing the need to purchase fossil-fuel gen-
erated electricity from the grid. Wild Amelia is a grantee of the Rayonier Foundation
and will feature foresters Ben Cazell and Dan Roach (foreground, far left and far
right) as speakers in one of the "Wild Nite" nature forums on Tuesday, March 8. The
fifth annual Wild Amelia Nature Festival will be held May 20-22. Visit
www.wildamelia.com to learn more.
Addicted to Plastic film Dec. 1
Plastics are perhaps the
most ubiquitous and versa-
tile material ever invented,
but they present a toxic lega-
cy that poison the environ-
ment, clog landfills and add
expense to refuse collection.
These topics will be dis-
cussed on Wednesday at the
Nassau Sierra Club's month-
ly meeting, to be held at the
Council on Aging building on
South 18th Street at 7 p.m.
The documentary film,
"Addicted To Plastic," will be
shown. It reports the history
and worldwide scope of plas-
tics pollution and the men
and women dedicated to
cleaning it up.
The documentary was
filmed over three years in 12
countries on five continents,
including trips to the middle
of the Pacific Ocean where
plastic debris accumulates.
From Styrofoam cLps to
artificial organs, no invention
in the past 100 years has had
more influence and presence
But such progress has
had a cost: no ecosystem or
segment of human activity
his escaped the shrink-
wrapped grasp of plastic.
"Addicted To Plastic" is a
global journey to investigate
what we really know about
the material of a thousand
uses and why there's so darn
much of il.
Th"e meeting is open to
the public. For further infor-
mation call 277-06(55.

Q. My elm tree has.

A .This is a common ques-
.tion during the fall from
both homeowners and com-
mercial sites no one is
More than likely it is the
result of a long-horned beetle
called a twig girdler. Twig

horned beetles. The grayish-

Beckyjordi ing. The hard
coverings may display inter-
esting and distinct patterns.
Their damage occurs primari-
ly from egg laying. They gir-
dle limbs by chewing a V-
shaped groove entirely
around twigs, branches or ter-
minals. Eggs are inserted into
the bark on the girdled part
of the branch away from the
Girdled limbs eventually
break and fall to the ground.
This is the reason you have
seen so many small branches
cut off and lying on the
ground. Larvae cannot devel-
op in healthy sapwood.
Damage can disfigure a
young tree and leads to sec-
ondary branching, especially
if the terminal is attacked.
Oak, persimmon, hickory and
pecan are common hosts.
The best control method is
to pick up the small branches
that have fallen to the ground,
l)ag or burn I hem. If you have
a young budding entomolo-
gist at home, they could leave
some of the twigs in the
shade and cut into the wood
every week or so to measure
the growth in the larva.
Ultimately, they may be able
to see a full grown adult.
Be sure to have a camera
ready to document each event
and use the metric system
when taking measurements.
This would make a great
classroom project. For infor-
mation on a variety of tree

the limb would be lost. The
same thing can happen to a
tree branch if a'girdling root
is allowed to grow around
another tree root.
We recently planted 14
new trees at the James S.
Page Governmental Complex
and every one of these new
trees had some degree of
girdling and circling roots -
from mild to severe. It is
important to examine the root
ball of any tree or shrub you
plant. Remove those girdling
or circling roots before you
plant. Remove the top layer of
soil and root mass so you can
examine the root structure
. In your situation, the plant
has been in the ground for
several years but it is still
important to remove any '
roots growing into another
root. Cut the girdling root just
above where it starts to grow
over the other root. You may
need to use loppers to make a
clean cut. Do not add' any
amendments to the soil no
black cow or fertilizer. Just be
sure the plant is well irrigated
for a few weeks to help get it
through the shock of losing a
major source of water. Keep
lawn grass as far away from
the roots as possible. Be sure
the mulch is not too deep -
only about 2-3 inches. Never
allow mulch to be piled up
around the trunk tissue,
which can provide the perfect
environment for disease.
Allow 18-24 inches area
around the trunk of the tree
or shrub, which should con-
tain nothing but soil and air.
The attached photo demon-
strates what can happen if the
girdling root is allowed to get
too large. Girdling and cir-
cling roots are probably one
of the more important causes
for failure in newly planted
