'We have a lot of money in the (city)

money from the pension fund
andgeta better investment?'
VICE MAYOR TIM POYNTER




City seeks cash



for its wish list


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Although city commissioners
recently pinned down their wish list for
municipal improvements, financing for
those projects is still the unanswered
question.
And although no consensus was
reached, commissioners at a special
meeting last week did introduce some
of their own ideas on financing.
One suggestion was the possibility.
of borrowing from the city pension
fund, and another was to reestablish
and expand the Community
Redevelopment Area. Creating a "more
equitable" property tax base to pay for
projects was another suggestion.
Ed Stull, managing director of finan-
cial advisory company First Southwest
of Orlando, presented the basics of
financing alternatives to city commis-
sioners at the March 29 special meet-
ing at City Hall.
Stull told commissioners they
would first have to identify which proj-
ects they want to finance, and then
make an estimate on the costs. After
that, funding sources must be identi-
fied, and timing of the projects deter-
mined.
City commissioners met in
February for a strategic planning ses-
sion, in which they chose five top goals


for the city: to revitalize the downtown
and complete the waterfront; to build
a new library; to acquire the historic
post office, to landscape South Eighth
Street, and to open Alachua Street to
vehicular traffic. A tentative cost for
these was set at $8 million.
Grants, bank financing, pooled
loans and bond financing are the main
funding sources, Stull said. The city
could also adopt a "pay as you go" plan
for funding major city projects.
A bond issue, Stull said, requires
three times the paperwork of bank
financing, and a general obligation
bond also' requires voter approval. A
bond also requires continuous disclo-
sure, and cities must complete proj-
ects within a certain amount of time.
Cities can also get lower rates on
general obligation bonds, Stull said,
of up to 0.3 percent.
A positive aspect of today's chal-
lenging financial situation, Stull said, is
that municipalities have been putting
off projects and bids for projects can
come in 20 percent lower than esti-
mates.
But there is an overall concern,
Stull said, with declining revenues of
municipalities, which have resulted in
city bankruptcies in California, for
example.

of the job.
"We have people from every walk
of life come through our gates and I K.
get to be responsible for leaving a
mark on their lives. If a visitor can
leave with a greater appreciation and
understanding of Florida's diverse
and priceless resources, both natural
and cultural, then I have done my
job for the day. In return, I am fortu-
nate,to be able to learn new things
from them as well."
A college intern at the fort,
Bucher earned a degree in
. Recreation Parks and Tourism with
a specialization in natural resource
recreation management from the
University of Florida, and received
hands-on training in interpretation,

WEDNESDAY. APRIL 6,2011 NEWS News-Leader


CITY Continued from 1A
"This is basically spooking
the market," Stull said. "People
took money out of municipal'
bond funds in unprecedented
numbers."
"The municipal bond mar-
ket has dropped off the map,"
Stull said. "People were rush-
ing the market to get the bonds
sold." There is also a concern
about commodity prices for
municipal projects, as well as
the financial effects of the
earthquake and tsunami in
Japan, he said.
In spite of that, Stull said
banks are aggressively court-
ing some municipalities with
high credit quality. Bank loans
can be had for as little as 2.94
percent, but these types of
loans have a life of only 15-20
years, Stull said.,
"We have a lot of money in
the (city) pension fund," Vice
Mayor Tim Poynter said, after
listening to the basics on
municipal funding. "We're not
getting very good returns.
What if we borrow money from
the pension fund and get a bet-
ter investment?"
"That has been explored by:
other municipalities," Stull said.
"You can get a better rate than
the market and you could still
be getting a good return."
Commissioner Arlene
Filkoff asked if other cities
had had any success with their
Community Redevelopment
Areas, which, she noted, had
covered a larger area in
Fernandina Beach at one
time.
City Attorney Tammi Bach
said the size of the city's CRA.
was decreased because lani-
guage in the state statute
referred to the area as "blight-
ed" and a. "slum," to which
some residents objected.
Neighborhoods south of Ash
Street were excised from the
CRA, which now primarily cov-
ers the downtown waterfront:
Resident Clinch Kavanaugh
suggested commissioners
"should consider dissolving the
CRA."


"Property values have gone
down, and we're looking at
ways to make money,"
Kavanaugh said.
When the CRA was creat-
ed a few years ago, Kavanaugh
said, "the Friends of
Fernandina started this huge
panic ... they said properties
would be condemned. It got
reduced down to where it is
today."
"We're doing it backwards,
the Fernandina way,"
Kavanaugh said. "We should
dissolve it and form a new one,
and establish a new base year."
"One of the problems of
expanding (the CRA) too much
is we have to run a city,"
Poynter said. "(The money col-
lected) can only be spent in the
CRA. If we expand it too much,
we reduce the dollars we can
spend in .other areas."
Poynter also noted that
another problem with projects
is that they are tied to the value
of property.
, "Homesteaded (properties)
don't pay much if they have
been here a long time," Poynter
said. "Someone who's been
here only three years pays
more. It doesn't seem equi-
table. Some people are being


penalized for coming in late
when property values were
high."
Stull said that gap has been
narrowing because all proper-
ty values have gone down, but
added that the issue could be
addressed by a special assess-
ment.
"Part of the problem here is
that we're kind of going around
in circles," Poynter said. He
added that none of the city's
priority projects had as yet
any costs associated with
them.
"We need to have a genuine
discussion," Poynter said. "We
don't have a clue about how
much it's going to cost. Look at
the impacts that are happen-
ing now, look at-the economic
engines."
"I would like to see some
follow-through," said. Filkoff,
"with cost-benefit analyses .;-
we need to look at all the 'pos-
sibilities and options and see
if something external is push-
ing us. We have to have a 3-D
picture of this; we can't have a
black and white view. I'd like to
start the (upcoming) budget
process with my homework
done."

"Lifting Up Our Voices
Through Time," a free com-
munity program presented by
the Friends of the Library in
conjunction with the Florida
Humanities Council on Satur-
day at 7:30 p.m., will remember
Trinity United Methodist
Church's history and the friend-
ship between the congregation
and community that was
responsible for the building
repairs in 2000 and preserva-
tion of its treasured stained
glass windows.
Interspersed with music by
the Songspinners, the program
speakers will be the Rev. Mark
G. Garvin, pastor, Valerie Baker
of Trinity United, Thea

and director, founded the
Songspinners and the Island
Chamber Singers. The Song-
spinners met for the firsttime in
January 2006 and the group has
grown from 16 to 47 women.
All are voltinteers,-including the
director and the accompanist.
For this program Joan
Averett, organist and director
of music ministry at Memorjal
United Methodist Church, will
direct the Songspinners, wlitt.
Lynn Hicks as accompanist.,
Seagraves, director of v.olb
unteers and tours at the muse-
um, will introduce Trinity's
story. Reber is the director of
Creative Glassworks and a glass
artist. The company was award-
ed the Preservation Excellence
Award from the Florida Trust
for Historic Preservation for its
work at Trinity UMC.
"Living in a nation in exis-
tence only 224 years, we have a
responsibility to preserve that
which is important to us cul-
turally and to respect the artis-
try and craftsmanship of those
who preceded us," he notes.
Baker is one of the mihis-
ters at Trinity United Methodist
Church and a sister in the
church who leads a monthly
gathering called "Women of
Power." She will discuss the
continuing role of the church
in our community. , .-

Panhandle beaches good as new


It can safely be classified as
the potential devastation that
never devastated Florida's Gulf
Coast.
Last summer, Florida resi-
dents were transfixed to their
television screens and the
image of oil flowing freely from
the British Petroleum well. The
image was relentless.
Meanwhile, the broadcast
media gushed with sensation-
al reports of a soiled pelican
'or a tar ball on the beach.
Today, the Panhandle of
Florida has returned to its
spectacular condition (the oil
damage was never that
severe). The only reminders
of the spill are the BP claims
offices positioned convenient-
ly across the region.
Unfortunately, the bands of
media that trumpeted the
inevitable devastation of the
region for decades to come -
are no longer here. They have
paraded to the next disaster,

T h e

astati n g,
m a i n l y
because the
tourists left,
exacerbating
an already


wicked economic downturn.
The oil was quickly cleaned
up, and left nary a drop of per-
manent damage.
Professional fishing and
shrimping boats, drydocked
by the environmental bans,
picked up work as spotters of
oil'"slicks. Many residents
earned jobs in various other
clean-up functions. And busi-


nesses in the service and
tourism industries survived
through a $20 billion pipeline
of funds provided by BP
The pipeline of funds is the
only thing that is still flowing
freely. And it is flowing might-

of then that are causing fear
among those that do not
know much about them. A
* look at several of them may
help clear up some bad feel-
ings.
.First on the list are snakes.
These animals are looking for
three things this time of year.
One is some sunlight to warm
them up; two is a mate to help
continue the species; three is
food. People have bad vibes
with snakes when they get
between the snake and one of-
the three goals. The best way
is to steol back and let it have
its right of way.
Second on the list are bob-
cats. I have talked to several
people from out of town that
are afraid of these animals,
seen or unseen. Let me
assure them and you that
these animals do not want
human contact. We are too
big to be a-meal and we are
way higher on the food chain

Proposed legislation SPB 7204 and HB 89 would remove your right to read
public notices in newspapers restricting them t9 government web sites
only. The public's right to know cannot be abandoned in favor of presumed
cost savings, which are elusive.
Public Notices must be publicly accessible
53.6% of Floridian's over 65 do not have access to the internet*
28.1% of African-Americans in Florida do not have access to the internet*
34.6% of Hispanics in Florida.do not have access to the internet*
In addition to printed newspapers, Florida's newspapers provide a supplemental
public notice web site, www.floridapublicnotices.com, allowing free and unlimited
searchable access to public notices aggregated from Florida newspapers.
Government posting of government notices on government websites takes away
third-partv neutrality
Making government officials responsible for notifying the public on their own
websites carries with it a potential for abuse. For example, it may create the
temptation to change or manipulate the timing of public notices. If a scheduled
public notice is not published or contains false information, the newspaper is more
likely to catch the mistake.
Public Notices must be archived in a secure and accessible format
The internet does not provide as reliable an archival history of public notices as
newspapers due to its vulnerability in the form of hackers, viruses, and downed
servers.
Governmental websites do not provide legal affidavits and written proof of
publication and a secure and verifiable paper trail
State and local governments, attorneys and private citizens rely on this
documentation to ensure that these notices were published timely and lawfully, as
newspapers are required by law to do.

My bucket list

I recently hung another year on the line
and this birthday prompted me to start look-
ing forward to what many people my age
think about: retirement.
The cessation of one's working life opens
up a whole new world. Thinking about having
the entire day to do whatever I please led me
to begin creating a bucket list.
For those who have seen
the movie about two guys
checking items off their list
of things to do before they
die, the term will be famil-
iar.
lMy own bucket list is
relatively short and simple.
The top three items involve
learning, travel and family.
NEWS- A lifelong lover of food,
ROOM I'd love to take a cooking
v course and become skilled
at creating those fancy din-
nefs I've seen prepared on
Heather TV by the chefs on Chop-
Pery ped or Iron Chef America.
Pey While I took a few for-
eign language classes in
school, I never studied more than enough to
pass the exams, so becoming truly fluent in
either Spanish or French would be ideal.
One of the most common things for
retirees to do is travel and while I don't antici-
pate having vast amounts of disposable
income, I can still dream about doing things.
like visiting an ashram in India or attending
the Kentucky Derby. Dreams don't cost a
thing so I'll throw in going across Canada by
train and how about a cooking class in Tus-
cany? And of course, I'll have to go to Madrid
or Paris to practice my new language skills.
The family part is a little more complicat-
ed. I can count on one hand the times my son
and daughter have-been in each other's com-
pany. I'd love to gather the two of them up
and take them to the Boston area to meet
their maternal grandmother and their seven
aunts and uncles and many cousins.
I alsoneed to complete a definitive family
tree before I leave this earthly plane. Thanks
to diligent New England relatives, I have.
information on most of my mother's side, but
aside from names, I know little about my
dad's family. For my children to know their
complete heritage, this item is a must.
All of these are fine ambitions and some of
them may not need to wait until retirement.
For now, I'm obliged to put in a few more
years before I clock out for the final time. By
the time I'm ready to tackle the list, I'll proba-
bly have added a few items.

ter at the News-Leader.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Dramatic changes
I have lived in Seaview subdivi-
sion, a neighborhood zoned R1, for
about 30 years, and I am sure my
wife, Eleanor Coleman, a former
mayor, would be heartsick that the
city would propose that our neigh-
borhood be changed to a commer-
cial zone ("Expand resort rental
areas?" on March 23).
Neighborhoods.are held togeth-
er by the common bond of daily
interaction over time. A weekly
change in neighbors erodes com-
munity. Envision weeklong parties,
loud noise into the night, and cars
and trucks parked everywhere -
basically a Wild West environment.
Our neighborhood is not about eco-
nomic gain for realtors and specu-
lative property owners who live else-
where. The endgame for this
proposal would be a boomtown with
a lower quality of life and lots of vis-
itors and tourists at the expense of
displaced local residents.
The proposal ultimately means
high-rise condominiums along the
shoreline with restaurants and
downtown shops overflowing with
tourists, to the delight of the realtors,
the chamber of commerce,
Economic Development and the
tourist bureau. Ocean views and
access would ultimately be limited to
those who could afford oceanfront
high-rise accommodations; witness
the rest of the state of Florida shore-
line. Our community would become
an amusement park just like
Daytona. Why not bring back beach
driving? Wouldn't it be nice for our
visitors to have Sunday mimosas on
the beach? We all need to keep in
mind with a majority vote and the
stroke of a pen this'feckless city
commission or a future one could
bring these things and more to our
very special community.
I am strongly disappointed with
our city commission. I encourage
every taxpayer who loves the com-
munity of Fernandina Beach as we
know it to notify your commission-
ers of your disapproval of the pro-
posal. We do not want a boomtown
for tourists but a hometown for res-
idents who grew up here or who
sought out the last vestige of an actu-
al and historic Florida beach town.
We especially want to preserve our
R1 single-family residential neigh-
borhoods and not become another
tacky overpriced cookie-cutter
resort
R1 neighborhoods are not the
place for hotel-like accommodations
or restaurants or bars but for the
stability, friendships and long-term
acquaintances, whether you live on
Fletcher, First Avenue, Historic
District, Old Town, Highlands,
Clinch Drive, Tarpon or any other
Fernandina Beach neighborhood. I
believe this proposal, if adopted, will
result in destruction of community
ifi our residential neighborhoods.
Charlie Coleman
Fernandina Beach

Upsetand confused
I, along with a number of my
neighbors, was surprised, upset and
confused to read that the city com-
mission has already decided to abol-
ish the resort rental ordinance and
commercialize the beaches area
prior to going through due process.
Based on the report appearing in
the News-Leader (March 23) itwoult
appear that only realtors and the
city community development chief
represented the public at a staged
commission meeting where the out-
come and support for the proposal
was decided before the meeting. It
is difficult to believe that any four
commissioners could agree in one
short meeting on such a longstand-
ing controvei-sial issue without
prior discussions among them-
selves which violated the intent of
the Sunshine Law of the state of
Florida.
According to the mayor, it was a
love fest. I assure you that their
views do not represent those of
many affected city residents.
The commercialization propos-
, alas presented does not have a clear
purpose except greater economic
development at all cost, even the
destruction of our long existing R1
single family residential neighbor-
hoods. The resort rental ordinance
defines resort rental to a rental peri-
od of less than 30 days and was
established to protect the integrity of
our neighborhoods and community
for perpetuity.
While it may not be flawless,
there is a continuing need for the
resort rental ordinance to balarice
the economic benefit of develop-
ment against the quality of life and
neighborhood cohesiveness.
I believe that ownership of prop-
erty does not give individuals the
unabridged right to do as you please
with the property, as individuals are
not an independent parcel but a part


of the whole which is governed by
the overall public interest.
Conditions have not changed sig-
nificantly since 2000 and there con-
tinues to be a long standing need
for maintaining quality of life
and community while allowing for
reasonable economic development.
I purchased my home near the
beach in-a long established resi-
dential neighborhood to live in
and not to use for a commercial vcn.
ture.

Weekly rentals
I've been reading the letters from
people against weekly beach rentals
with a large degree of disbelief. For
residents of such a warm, charm-
ing community, some of the writers
exhibit a shocking degree of snob-
bery. You'd think city commission-
ers had issued an open invitation to
the riff-raff of the world. Good gra-
cious, people. At the price of week-
ly rentals these days, I'd venture to
say that most of the renters are peo-
ple just like you and me, people who
just want to take their families on a
nice beach vacation.
: We have laws to deal with open
houseparties, underage alcohol con-
. sumption and excessive noise, not to
mention a police chief who listens
and responds to the concerns of the
citizenry. I suspect many of you
naysayers are relative newcomers
who don't realize that it was weekly
rentals that kept this community
afloat through good times and bad
for many, many years. -
The kind of discretionary income
people have who can drop two grand
on a beach house for a week isn't
something to be sneered at these
days. Tbh,-.e shwri-i i,..at ail l, ri i
go out to eat, buy grti&k.iic, lak,:'
charter fishing trips and generally
pour a healthy amount of money
into the local economy the week
they're here. You want local busi-
nesses to thrive and yet you'd cut off
viable streams of income that make
that possible, especially in tough
economic times. What sort of logic
is that?
Enough of the property values
mantra already. Have you looked
around lately? It isn't a weekly beach
rental next door to a house you paid
too much for that's killing your prop-
erty values. Whatever happened to
less government regulation of small
businesses?
Deal with the problems as the
problems arise and try to get along
with everybody. The sky isn't falling.
I just went out and checked and it's
still right where it was yesterday.
By the way, many of us wouldn't
be taxpaying, proud, productive
members of this community were it
not for the fact that our parents,
grandparents and even great-grand-
parents were weekly vacationers
here for many years.
Richard Palmer
Fernandina Beach

Resort rentals
I think we can all empathize with
the residential neighborhoods not
wanting transient tenants next door
changing on a weekly basis. How-
ever, this is a topic that should be
addressed within these develop-
. ments through their HOAs and
through deed restrictions. To think
of Fletcher Avenue (A1A) as a resi-
dential neighborhood that should
be subjected to the same restric-
tions as a planned "neighborhood"
is absurd.
Those of us lucky enough to be
able to live permanently on our beau-
tiful island need to realize that a
large portion of our economy comes
from tourism. Our tax base is also
highly funded by second homes on
North and South Fletcher that do
not share in our homestead exemp-
tion. These restrictions initially came
about to limit rentals in neighbor-
hoods and ended up limiting the use
of properties that should not fall into
this category.
Proper licensing and inspecting
of short-term rentals is the solution.
There would be bed tax to collect,
sales tax to collect and tourism dol-
lars being spent to boost our local
economy. There should be a zero
tolerance policy for poor behavior
and overcrowding strictly enforced
by properly owners and local law
enforcement alike. No one will make
a profit in beachfront rentals based
on current property values, but this
income can assist in paying taxes
and help with maintenance. This can
be a win-win situation.
Susan Hughes
Fernandina Beach


Landfill
How much do the citizens of
Nassau County have to pay to have
our household garbage transport-
ed to Georgia? What happens
when Georgia cannot handle our
household waste? We should all be
doing our part to recycle and "go
green."
Most citizens are responsible and
do their part. I understand why the
county decided to close the landfill
in Callahan and that we still have to
pay to monitor the landfill being
closed for the next 30 years but now
citizens are faced with paying more
for trash.service through Advanced
Disposal. With these difficult eco-
nomic times, we expect things to
increase but enough is enough. To
the county commissioners, what is
your plan when Georgia can no
longer handle our waste? I would
hate to think that people would be.
forced to allow their trash to pile up
or worse litter this great county of
ours. We can take our household
garbage to Callahan but who can
afford the gas to travel? I know how
difficult it is to make cuts to the
budget but citizens are forced to do
it every day to live within our means.

Fernandina Beach. or
Fernandina?
Thank you for reporting on the
potential loss of beach maintenance
funds ("'Risk of losing' beach funds,"
March 30). For a beach community
to place its beach at risk sounds like
a fairy tale involving "the goose that
laid the golden egg." The city man-
ager has given his position to the
Corp of Engineers. Perhaps our
elected officials need to let us know
where they stand on this issue? It's
time to decide whether we need a
beach or not. Is this Fernandina
Beach or just Fernandina? I'l pledge
my support to forgo any other cap-
ital projects in order to maintain our
beach!

Old Towns bicentenni-
al
The music was fabulous, the food
delicious, the volunteers enthusias-
tic and fun, the history fascinating -
and, of course, the pirates were pil-
laging and carrying on as well
they should. Biut most impressive
was how will it was organized.
We must give a round of applause
for Jennifer and Mike Harrison, orig-
inally from "across the pond." They
came here and fell in love with
Fernandina, researched the histo-
ry, put together many volunteers,
buses, boats, etc. which resulted in
one of the best festivals I've attend-
ed.
Maggie Carlson

Deficit reduction
A great debate is going on nation-
ally about the need to balance gov-
ernment budgets, a goal which most
citizens agree upon. But it is seldom
stated that government spending
results primarily from the mandates
of our elected representatives who
passed legislation authorizing gov-
ernmental actions that seemed ben-
eficial to the public.
If it is now decided that the pub-
lic cannot afford to fund such
actions, it would appear that the
best way to reduce the mandated
expenditure is to revisit each legis-
lated action in turn and see what
we, the public, can do without. Yet
those in government appear to be
sponsoring spending cuts that will
be most politically popular versus
most unnecessary for the public
good.
An excellent example at the fed-
eral level is military expenditure
which, as Rep. Ander Crenshaw
states, amounts to close to 50 per-
cent of federal spending. There are
well-publicized incidents of cuts in


specific.weapons programs but no
known overall review of the world
mission of American armed forces.
Can we afford to. try to be the
world's policeman? Can we afford
to have a Navy that is larger than the
next 13 nations combined?
If the answer to such questions is
yes,' then Americans must accept
the need for increased taxation to
.pay for it. If no, then our armed
forces must be adjusted to what we
are willing to spend, not simply
asked to do the same job for less
money. or with less expensive
.weapons.
Alan Donaldson

TFair and balanced'
Let's see, what real purpose does
the paper you just shelled out 75
cents for have? We know it is good
to wrap dead fish in. We know it is
wonderful for house training our
pets. We know it is good to catch
dropping paint as we paint our
rooms.
The real question is: Do we
know that the printed word we are
paying to read is factual? The obit-
uaries are usually accurate. LItters
such as this' are pretty 'muc just
the opinions of the persons who
have taken the time to write them.
I wouldn't take many of them as.
fact.
I think that any article or edito-
rial this paper prints should resem-
ble the facts of the issues. That
would be called 'responsible jour-
nalism.
Most of the editorials and
columns in the paper deal with cur-
rent city issues such as the mari-
na, golf course, beach erosion, build-
ing of new tennis courts, zoning
issues, city spending, etc. These are
important topics that affect us all.
Believe it or not, the News-Leader is
the way many of us get the infor-
mation on what is happening in our
city. Proof of that is that you are
reading this.
After reading various articles in
the News-Leader, I have called the
town looking for answers to what I
just read. I have spoken to the
mayor, various city commissioners
and thl city manager to ask them to
explain some of the reasoning and
logic on issues and actions I just
read about.
More often than not, they have a
completely'different version of the
facts. I mean their version isn't even
close to what was in the paper. This
can only lead me to believe some-
one is not telling us the facts.
The News-Leader is a for-profit
business. They can print what they
want and we can choose to buy the
paper.
So how do we.get the right infor-
mation? How do we get, as Fox
News would say, "fair and balanced
reporting?"
I challenge the News-Leader to
offer the city space in the paper
each week to rebut any editorial/
article printed in the paper. Give
the city a chance to challenge your
facts.
I challenge the city to appoint
someone to read the News-Leader,
painful as many city officials
feel that would be, find out what
the facts are on any given city
, issue reported in the paper and sub-
mit it to the News-Leader for
rebuttal.
I actually see it as a win-win sit-
uation. The News-Leader will create
a space for stimulating debate on
issues, and we, the paying public,
will be on the edge of our seats each
week anxiously awaiting to read the
give and take on important issues.
Who knows circulation may even
increase if folks think they are get-
ting that old fair and balanced act for
their 75 cents.
The city will have an avenue to
set the record straight and help the
people to make sound decisions
based not on just the News-Leader's
version of the facts, but theirs as
well.

changes catch my attention.
The wooded trails of Fort
Clinch State Park and the
open expanses of the Egans
Creek Greenway also hold
new insights when I repeated-
ly walk these parts of my
beat. The seasonal changes in
the birds, and the butterflies,
and the flowering shrubs
once totally captivated me,
but now I see even more. At
this point, on these stretches
of my beat, I now know where
and when to look for certain
mushrooms, anF can locate
all the otter crossings on the
paths to check for recent
activity.
When I return from a trip
and travel my beat again after
an absence'it is even more
interesting. For, it turns out I
am also part of the beat of the
other people I often meet on
miy rounds. The same dog
walkers and fisherfolk and
morning hikers and bird-
watchers know me just as
well as I know them. If I've
been gone, for awhile there's a
lot of catching up to do. "Have
you seen the dredging on the
north end?" "Did you know
that the ospreys are back on
their pole?" "I've been hoping
to see you, what kind of shell
is this?" "I found a dead
armadillo in my yard. I once
shared a duck blind with an
armadillo and fed him
Cheetos.".And all kinds of
other things are mentioned.
It's a great way to get new sto-
* ries, just walking my beat,
again.
I'm never actually away
from my nature beat on
Amelia Island, thanks to my
"informers." There are people
with a good nature eye and a
keen interest that keep me
filled in on the natural hap-


. openings when I am off the
island. I've been able to keep
up with the 14th Street Pole,
with the happenings along the
nature trail in Fort Clinch
State Park, with the situation
on "Lake Wobegon," with the
backyard lizards, frogs and
snakes on Amelia Island
through emails from a net-
work of people who I rely on
for their repeated updates.
Others send me photos with
nature happenings on the
beach, on the Greenway, in
Fort Clinch and Talbot State
Parks. Others email me spo-


radically, or maybe only
once, about something they
see that puzzles them and; by
looking into the answer for
them, I invariably learn
something new. (Thanks one
and all you know who you
are.)
I am thankful to have a
beat around Amelia Island,
and grateful to Mother
Nature and all my informers
for providing me with new
stories as I travel the same
paths for years on end. I used
to wonder about people who
live in the same area all their


lives, how they can continue
to be stimulated by the "same
old, same old." But now I
know. There is nothing "same
old, same old" as long as you
keep expanding your knowl-
edge and peeling off deeper
layers of the onion. It's taken
.me years for this realization,
but now, thanks to my life on
Amelia Island, I've finally got
it!

Law places limits


on watering yards


With springtime planting
under way, and rainfall 5 to 20
inches below normal for the
year across Northeast Florida,
the St. Johns River Water
Management District is work-
ing to heighten awareness
about the importance of year-
round conservation and the
role homeowners play in water
.resource protection.
The district's Governing
Board recently approved a
proclamation designating April
as Water Conservation Month
to encourage awareness about
the importance of water con-
servation.
April has been formally rec-
ognized as Water Conservation
Month in Florida for the past
13 years.
Conservation is among the
most important strategies to
help meet Florida's water sup-
ply needs for today and the
future, and the efficient use of"
water outside and inside the
home can save thousands of
gallons of water per month.
Saving water can be easy and-
often delivers money savings
* as well.
With more than half of com-
mercial and residential water,
use occurring outdoors,,
mandatory watering restric-
tions (http://floridaswater.,
com/wateringrestrictions) are
in place throughout the year,
within the district's region to
ensure, the efficient use of.
water for lawn and landscape
irrigation. Watering wisely pro-
motes healthier lawns and.
landscapes and conserves
Florida's water resources.
Coinciding with the return,
to daylight saving- time on
March 13, landscape irrigation,
is allowed up to two days a
week before 10 a.m. or after 4
p.m.
Landscape irrigation is lim-
ited to the following days:
Wednesday and Saturday
for residential landscape irri-
gation at addresses that end
in an odd number or have no
address
Thursday and Sunday for
residential landscape irrigation
at addresses that end in an
even number
Tuesday and Friday for
no resklential land.dcaeJrr r-
gation
In addition, irrigation is.lim-
ited to 3/4 inch of water per
irrigation-zone and to no more
than one hour per irrigation


zone on each day that irriga-
tion occurs.
Landscape irrigation is lim-
ited to one day a week during
r Eastern Standard Time, which
resumes Nov. 6.
The district has had some'
form of water-conserving irri-
gation restrictions in place for
20 years, 'with the mandatory
day limitation and designation
kince,2009.
To further assist homeown-
ers save water, the district in
February launched an updated
and dynamic online plant data-
base (http://publicserver2.sjr-
wmd.com/waterwise/search.j
sp) that provides a compre-
hensive and searchable listing
of plants most suitable for a
variety of growing conditions.
Inside the home, fixing
leaks and replacing older high-
walei-use plumbing fixtures,
with newer water-saving ones,
can, save significant amounts
of water.
The district also focuses
year-round on conservation by
requiring dll permit holders to
use water efficiently, encour-
aging the use of reclaimed
water and storm water.

F LORIDA'S OLDEST


Corey'on a mission


to keep this place safe'


RYAN REAVES
News Leader


The Federated Republican
Women of Nassau received a
special visit from State Attorney
Angela Corey during a lunch-
eon at the Golf Club of Amelia
Island last month.
As the State Attorney for the
Fourth Judicial Circuit of
Florida, Corey spoke to an
enthusiastic crowd about a bal-
anced state budget, the impor-
tance of justice and the fight
for the taxpayers.
"You have to fight first on
the home turf, then you fight
for everyone else," she said.
"We have to look out for you."
Corey is a veteran prosecu-
toi-who has tried hundreds'of
cases, including more than 50
homicides during her 29-year
career. Since being elected in
2008, she has represented
Duval, Nassau and Clay coun-
ties. In addition to her trial
experience, she has also trained


police and prosecutors on all
levels.
"We are pushing on your
behalf to retain good prosecu-
tors on a mission to keep this a
safe place," she said. "We've
got a group of dedicated
lawyers dedicated to you."
Corey went on to discuss
the importance of aggressive
law enforcement that doesn't
cheat on the Constitution or
state statutes.
"We need more elected offi-
cials not just saying they're
going to put more people in
prison, but putting people in
who deserve to be there," she
said.
Corey laid out ways law
enforcement can cut budgets
without sacrificing quality.
Methods like going as paper-
less as possible and cutting lux-
urjes for prisoners, she says,
would help make the correc-
tions department run more effi-
cintly.. She also expressed her
desire to see prisons and jails

Adkins' bill advances


State Rep. Janet Adkins' bill
to ban synthetic cannabinoids,
drugs that can be compared to
a more potent form of mari-
juana, passed on the House
floor on Thursday after a 105-
13 vote.
Synthetic cannabinoids
refer to chemical compounds
that resulted from scientific
research of THC, the active
ingredient in marijuana.
Scientists ultimately rejected
these chemical compounds,
but recreational chemists and
profiteers took the informa-
tion from the research, repro-
duced the chemical com-
pounds and sold them for
public consumption.
"In the last year alone,
there have been over 2,000
phone calls to poison control
centers around the country
involving the misuse of syn-
thetic cannabinoid," said
Adkins. "This is a dangerous
substance that needs to be
banned."
The primary delivery
method of synthetic cannabi-
noid is to spray the chemicals
. on organic matter, roll it in
cigarette paper and smoke it.
This product is often market-
ed as K-2, or Spice.
It is also often marked as
incense and many packets are
labeled as "not for human con-
sumption," but it is growing


in popularity and has caught
the attention of many people
across the state of Florida and
the country.
Due to its harmful effects,
it has already been banned in
more than a dozen states. The
side effects of smoking K-2 or
Spice can be very severe and
can include vomiting, panic
attacks, heart palpitations, hal-
lucinations and blood pres-
sure changes.
"There is currently no stan-
dard dosage level or quality
control," said Adkins. "The
long-term effects of this potent
drug are still unknown, but
we do knoW that the effects
are much more., intense than
those of marijuana. We have to
do everything we can to get
this product out of the reach of
our kids."
HB 39 schedules five of
these chemical compounds in
Schedule 1 of the Florida's
controlled substance sched-
ules.
Scheduling these five
chemical compounds in
Florida's controlled substance
schedules will allow state and
local law enforcement pr6fes-
sionals to arrest and prose-
cute these persons who man-
ufacture and distribute these
chemicals.
The bill is now on its way to
the Senate.

V MAY I HELP YOU?


He's the meat guy
HEATHER: PERRY
News Leader _I s I-


As meat department man-
ager at Food Lion, Jeff Archer
thrives on all aspects of his job,
especially interacting with his
customers.
"Having a customer come-
back and tell me how delicious
a meal was that I helped them
prepare is very rewarding."
Assistant store manager
Crayvon Corpening says
Archer has quite a following on
Amelia Island.
"He was away for awhile and
now that he's back, we wanted
to get the word out. People real-
ly like Jeff. He is friendly and
his vast knowledge of cooking
methods on a wide variety of
meats will always result in the
customer knowing how to-pre-
pare delicious meals."
The store is a real source of
pride for Archer, who says, "I
would love to.challenge anyone
who has not visited our friend-
ly neighborhood Food Lion to
come in and see our low prices
and friendly associates. While
you're there, come to the meat
department and meet myself
or one of my fine meat cutters."
With 21 years in the Air
Force, Archer says his military
training helps him stay disci-
plined and focused in running
the meat department.
"I spent my last eight years
in the Gulf, body guarding gen-
erals and Saudi Arabian digni-
taries in Dhahran and Riyadh
for the U.S. military, so becom-
ing a market manager after that
was a big change for me."
Originally from New York,
Archer has lived in Nassau
County seven years.
Archer shares his home

Community health center sought


RYAN SMITH
News Leader
The Nassau County Com-
mission has voted to donate
$2,000 in an effort to win a plan-
ning grant to build a communi-
ty medical center.
The $2,000, donated to a
coalition between the Barnabas
Center, Baptist Medical Center
Nassau, Sutton Place Behavioral
Health and the Nassau County
Health Department, will go
toward hiring a grant writer to
put together a proposal for an.
$80,000 planning grant from the
federal government.
That grant, in turn, would be
used to develop a plan for a fed-
erally funded community health,
center. The group originally
asked for a $5,000 donation.
"We don't want to pass this
opportunity up," said Wanda
Lanier, executive director of the
Barnabas Center. "There are
over .13,000 uninsured people in


Nassau County most of them
adults so this would be an
extremely important service."
Laureen Pagel, director of
Sutton Place, said a federally
funded health center for low-
income and uninsured citizens
would be vital if the state
decreased health department
services.
"The governor is pushing the
health department to focus on
public health and get out of the
healthcare provider'business,"
she said. "And many uninsured
people use the emergency room
as their primary care facility.
That costs the county thousands
of dollars."
"Is the county being asked to
cover the cost of this grant
writer completely?" asked
Commissioner Stacy Johnson.
"No, the partners are pitch-
ing in," Lanier said. She said the
group had covered about $2,000
of the $7,000 total cost.
"We don't have anybody in


any one of these organizations
who's qualified to write this
grant?" Johnason asked.
"We need someone who's
qualified to pull it all together,"
Lanier said.
"My concern is that you're
talking about a community med-
ical center,". Commissioner
Barry Holloway said. "Who's
going to pay for that?"
'The federal government will
cover about 75 percent of it,"
Lanier said. "The rest we would
have to raise." .
"The grant writer costs
$7,000, and you're asking us-to
contribute $5,000," Holloway
said. "So between the four of
your organizations, you could
only come up with $500 apiece?"
"Have you approached the
cities of Fernandina Beach,
Hilliard or Callahan?" Commis-
sioner Danny Leeper asked.
',"No, regretfully, not yet,"
Lanier said.
Leeper said he was con-

Lanier said the coalition was
looking at existing buildings to
house it.
Johnson was hesitant to
donate the full $5,000, which
would have to come from the
commission's discretionary
funds.
"The amount you've asked
for, $5,000, would be one whole
district's funds for the whole
year," she said. "I'd be willing
to contribute $400 from my fund.
With $400 from all five districts,
that would total $2,000."
Leeper said that $2,000
would get the group started,
while still affording them the
opportunity to approach the
city governments for contribu-
tions.

make the contribution, with

Drive safely in road

construction zones


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Department of Transportation
(FDOT) officials remind
motorists to drive carefully in
construction zones.
Drivers and their passengers
account for most of the deaths
in construction zone crashes,
according to FDOT statistics.
Improving safety in construc-
tion zones includes encourag-
ing drivers to follow the posted
speed, minimize distractions
and be alert.
In.2009, the most recent sta-
tistics available, 97 people were
killed and 6,305 people were
injured in Florida work zone
crashes. For the second year in
a row, the number of annual
deaths has dropped below 100.
"Staying alert and focused
are always critical to safe driv-
ing, particularly in and around
.work zones," said Ananth


Prasad, FDOT Assistant
Secretary for Engineering.
FDOT urges motorists of all
ages to drive safely in work
zones by following these safety
tips:
Be alert: Expect anything
to occur when entering a work
zone.
Don't tailgate: Unexpected
stops frequently occur in work
zones.
Don't speed: Note the sug-
gested speed limits in and
around the work zones.
Don't change lanes in the
work zone: Any time saved just
isn't worth the chance.'
Minimize distractions:
Avoid changing the radio sta-
tion and using cellular phones
while driving in the work zone.
Expect the unexpected:
Keep an eye out for workers
and their equipment.

This was written by Ryan
Reaves and Ryan Smith of the
News-Leaderfrom oral and writ-
ten reports by the Nassau County
Sheriff's Office, the city of

Office anonymously by calling

rying a concealed weapon and

at 7:32 p.m. Sunday after staff
said a man wearing jeans and
a gray sweatshirt told them
that if they did not keep their
patients on the premises he
would cut the patients' throats
and leave them in a ditch. He
then left on a bicycle.
Moments later .police
reportedly found Clemons sit-
ting on a picnic table behind'
Discount Liquors, drinking a
beer and wearing the same
clothing as- described by
Dayspring Village staff.
He told the deputy he had a
small knife in his front pocket.

the deputy reportedly saw a
large opened-blade hunting
knife with a gut hook in his
back pocket, which he took
from Clemons.

that he went to the facility just
to warn them "to keep their
patients on a leash." The knife
was placed into evidence while

Hilliard Sub-Station for.safe-
keeping. The complainant and
a witness both provided police

erty in an attempt t6 sell it.

one drove a pickup through
the front gate at 4386 CR 108,

idence Saturday around 1 p.m.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 6, 2011/NEWS-LEADER


Whitir

B each fishermen were
catching plenty of
good eating whiting
from the surf over
the weekend, but had compe-
tition from much better fish-
ermen.
"It was a feeding frenzy
like I have never seen," Jerry
Rice said. "The dolphins were
so close to the beach they
nearly ran out of water while
rounding up beach whiting
for an easy meal: It was crazy;
surf fishermen were reeling
in whiting one after the other
while dolphins were feeding
right in the middle of this
crazy beach feeding frenzy."
Beach fishermen were fol-
lowing the dolphin along the
beach to locate the best whit-
ing fishing just as fishermen
follow dolphin, in the backwa-
ters when locating a big
school of redfish.
A mix of pompano, blues,
sea trout, puppy drum and
flounder were also feeding in
the surf.
The month of April is
prime for beach fishing and
Amelia Island and Fernandina
Beach offer some of the best
surf fishing in the Southeast.
However, many fishermen
who cast out surf fishing lead-
ers and barb baits often lack
the knowledge and proper
fishing gear to enjoy-a suc-
cessful day of surf fishing. I
have even seen fishermen
surf casting with five-foot
Zebco freshwater outfits
much better fitted for catch-
ing freshwater bream, bass
and catfish.

Baited surf rigs can also
be cast out deep, at mid-
depths and also shallow to
fihd where the best surf fish-
ing action is taking place.
Tides are also critical dur-
ing the spring beach fishing
season with the last of the
incoming and all of the falling
tide offering the best fishing
action. Moon phases will also
make a huge difference in
your fishing success. Avoid
fishing right on or a day after


a full or new moon.
Wind direction is also criti-
cal. North or northeast winds
will decrease your surf fish-
ing success while light south
and southeast winds offer
some of the best surf fishing
action. Westerly winds will
provide good surf fishing
action as well.
Florida residents over the
age of 16 need a Florida fish-
ing permit, which is free.
Non-residents 16 and older
need to purchase a Florida
saltwater fishing license.'

This family

Faith, family, fellowship.
These three words have been
a primary focus for the
Harter family for more than
30 years. Little did they know
they would be playing in a
softball league that focuses on
the same values.
Carol still remembers the
day when, in their teens, she
met Pat after a softball game
June 24, 1971. The two were
married just over a year later
on Aug. 26, 1972, at Springhill
Baptist Church.
After nearly 40 years, you
can still see the Harter family
running around the bases in
the Family Driven Softball
League. But it is the dates of
October 1979 and May 1980
that will forever be remem-
bered in their lives together.
These are the dates that Carol
and Pat turned their lives
over to Christ, thus starting a
remarkable journey that con-
sists of three children and
seven grandchildren.
Grandmother Carol has
played softball competitively
for more than 30 years and
was named ladies player of
the week by the league last
week after going three-Jor-
four and' helping the team
coached by husband Pat
defeat Lannie Road Baptist
Church.
Grandfather Pat, who is a
player and coach for The
Journey Church Team Two,

ment maintenance coordina-

before Woods won the 1997 Masters
for his first major championship.

---- native Japan, Ryo Ishikawa has
decided to donate his entire tournament earnings
this year, plus a bonus for every birdie he makes,
toward relief efforts. Ishikawa, 19, won his first
Japan Golf Tour event as a 15-year-old amateur,
won the money title at 17 and last year became
the first player to shoot 58 on a major tour. He
already has nine wins on the Japan Golf Tour and
was third on Japan's money list last year with just
over $1.82 million. He also has pledged about
$1,200 (100,000 yen) for every birdie. He led the
Japanese tour last year with 341 birdies, which
would amount to over $400,000.


The fairway bunker shot is one of the most difficult in the game since we do not see
0 it that often. Perhaps the hardest part is to figure out which dub is the right one to use.
The most important aspect of this is to not think about the green. Your sole focus
should be on trying to determine which club will allow you to dear the lip of the bunker
so you will not bury it in the lip. Here are a couple other tips to remember when you
are playing the fairway bunker shot. Unlike a bunker shot near the green, you do not
need to dig your feet in the sand very much at all. This would make your feet below the ball and you
could hit a fat shot. The other tip is to not try and make a fancy shot from the fairway bunker. Just
make your normal swing and the results will turn out much better than you think. e

Wild Nite to focus on sea turtles


Mary Duffy, president of
Amelia Island Sea Turtle
Watch, and Sandra Baker-
Hinton, coordinator of Amelia
Island Sea Turtle Watch at Fort
Clinch State Park, will be the
featured speakers at Wild
Amelia Nature Festival's sixth
"Wild Nite" nature forum on
Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Peck
Center, 516 South 10th St.,
Fernandina Beach.
a The program is free and
open to the public of all ages
and will focus on the volunteer
work of Amelia Island Sea
Turtle Watch, an organization
dedicated to collecting data
about sea turtle nesting and
helping endangered sea turtles
survive on this island.
For more than 20 years a
network of volunteers have aris-
en before the sun to walk the
beaches of Amelia Island look-
ing for the huge telltale tracks
of the loggerhead, green and
even leatherback turtles that
have nested on this island for
centuries. All endangered
species, these female turtles
come ashore only to nest,
sometimes several times a sum-
mer. It is thought that some
internal GPS leads them back
to the beach of their birth for
nesting.
Amelia Island Sea Turtle


PHOTO BY KATHY BROOKS/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
A lone leatherback hatchling was found upon excava-
tion of the first leatherback nest on Amelia Island in
decades during the summer of 2010; all other hatch-
lings had made it to the sea.


Watch .volunteers verify the
existence and type of nest, cor-
don it off for protection and
wait and watch for 50-60 days
until the 100-150 eggs hatch.
Then, very small hatchling
tracks are indicators of the suc-
cessful hatch; and permitted
volunteers then excavate the
nest to count the shards of
hatched eggs and look for
live hatchlings in the nest,
which are then released to the
sea.
Observing the ancient ritu-
al of the sea turtle nest is one of
the great joys of living on


Amelia Island; each resident
and visitor can do some very
simple things each summer
from May through August to
help make sure the nesting sea-
son is successful. To find out
how you can help sea turtles
and hatchlings survive, plan.on
attending the Wild Nite on
Tuesday and bring your turtle
questions. It is worth noting
that last year's nesting season
was the most successful ever
documented on Amelia, with
more than 200 nests, including
the first leatherback nest in
many years.
