City residents should be aware
that RV owners who visit Fernandina

nances regarding the parking of those
vehicles .
The city's Land Development
Code states parking of occupied RVs
is prohibited in residential, commer-
cial, wetland or recreational districts,
except for loading and unloading. An
RV may only be parked if it is
enclosed in a building or in a side or
rear yard and not occupied.

"I don't like to think of others suf-

difference in someone's life, it will be
worth it," said Cathy Ingebrigtsen.
The. disability management spe-
cialist .will travel to Haiti in July as
part of a group of doctors and nurses
on a volunteer mission to treat those
still suffering the effects of the
January 2010 earthquake.
A nurse with the U.S. Navy for 14
years, Ingebrigtsen has experienced
the kind of outdoor, primitive med-
ical treating conditions she and her
colleagues will face. -.
"We will bring our own water puri-
fier and will rely on food at the orphan-
age," said Ingebrigtsen.
The group will base out of Destiny

the clinic at the orphanage.
"While we are in the outlying
areas, we will most likely survive the
day on granola bars and water which
we will bring."
Ingebrigtsen was .invited to join
the team by Dr. Carolyn Crawford, a
neonatlogist who has made the trip
before.
"She knew that I volunteer at a
children's camp in the U.S. for two to
three weeks every summer and she
thought I would be perfect for the
trip."
The team includes Crawford and

was hoping they might provide a tick-

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
Nassau County School Board mem-
ber Jim Adams resigned Monday after
nearly 15 years on the board.
Adams gave no notice, submitting
his resignation to Gov. Rick Scott effec-
tive immediately.
Adams has also resigned as CEO of
Family Support Services of Northeast
Florida, a foster care and adoption
agency.
Adams, whose wife died of cancer
in early 2008 and whose schedule as
school board member often conflicted
with his work for
Family Support ,
Services, said he was f'
leaving both posts ..
because he was
"exhausted."
"It's been almost .. "
two and a half years
since my wife .died,"
and three years of Adams
working on trying to
take care of her on
top of the two and a half," he said
Monday. "I'm exhausted. That's pret-
ty much it."
Adams, who was first elected ,to
the school board in 1996, said he want-
ed to spend more time with his fami-
ly.
"My mom's 84. She's getting ready
to go on a trip, and I want to go with
her, so I'm not going to be able to
make the meetings," he said. "I want
to spend time with her, and also with
my grandchild. My heart's just not in
(the work)..... I'm just going to spend
some time with my mom and my kids,
my family."
Adams had no opposition when he
ran for reelection in 2008 in District 4,
which includes Bryceville and Hilliard.
He is a former school board chair-
man and.a former chairman of the
Nassau County Republican Party.
Scott will appoint a successor to fill
the remainder of Adams' term on the
school board.

News-Leader
About $7.2 million in taxes was still
unpaid in Nassau County as of April 19,
according to the Nassau County Tax
Collector's Office.
That's a decrease from the $8.9 mil-
lion still unpaid last year at that time.
There are also fewer unpaid parcels
- 4,655 than last year's 4,680.
However, tax delinquencies in the
county have, in general, been trending
upward for the last five years.
In 2007, the Tax Collector's Office
reported 3,382 unpaid parcels a
gross delinquent tax amount of about
$5.3 million. In 2008, however rough-
ly coinciding with the onset of the sub-
prime mortgage crisis delinquent
property taxes spiked by nearly $3
million, to $8.2 million delinquent on
4,182 parcels.
In 2009 delinquencies spiked
upward again, to about $9.5 million on
4,636 parcels. 2010 saw a decrease in
dollar value of delinquencies only
$8.9 million but an increase in unpaid
parcels to 4,680.
This year is the first time since the
beginning of the national economic
slowdown that the county has seen a
decrease in both delinquent parcels

Plan, prepare for


hurricane season


ATLANTA Today marks
the start-of another hurri-
cane season in the U.S., even
as the recovery from the his-
toric tornado outbreaks con-
tinues in the southeast.
NOAA's Climate
Prediction Center has esti-
mated six to 10 hurricanes
this season, with three to six
of those expected to be
Category 3 or above. FEMA
is prepared to respond to the
needs of states in hurricane-
prone areas, but any federal
response needs to be paired
with citizen preparedness -
in businesses and at home.
"You can't know far ahead
of time when it will be your
community itithe path of a
hurricane. If you wait until
the storm is bearing down
on you, you may forget ,
important things," said
FEMA Regional
Administrator Phil May,
"Plan ahead, stay safe and
stay informed."
Being prepared makes a
big difference in disasters,
but it doesn't have to come at
a big cost. A quick look
around your house or apart-
ment can get you almost
everything you need to'build
an emergency supply kit,'
which should include three
days of food and water, pre-
:scription medication, bat-,
tery-powered or hand-crank
radio, flashlight, spare batter-
ies, first aid kit, can opener,
local maps, moist towelettes,
toilet paper, garbage bags
and plastic ties for personal
sanitation.
A complete list of recom-
mended items for an emer-
gency supply kit can be
found at www.ready.gov,
FEMA's emergency pre-
paredness website.
Having the proper sup-
plies early in a disaster is
vital, but so is having a com-
munication plan to stay in
touch with familymembers.
Your family may not be
together when disaster
strikes, so it is important to
know how you will contact


jone
another,
how you
will get
1- back
Together
: and what
you will
do in case of an emergency.
You should also share your
evacuation plans, so others
know that you are out of
harm's way.
Learn about the emer-
gency plans that have been
established in your area by
your state and local govern-
ment, such as shelters and
evacuation routes. Have dif-
ferent sources of information
in case one is not working -
don't rely on just TV, radio or
the Internet. A smartphone
can be a great resource as
well:'FEMA's mobile site,
m.femna.gov, allows disaster
survivors to apply for assis-
tan'e;, locate Disaster
Recovery Centers and Red
Cross shelters.
Finally, know your risk in
a disaster. While FEMA
assistance can help you get
back on your feet, it won't
make you whole. To protect
your investment in your
home and possessions, you
need' insurance and an
understanding of what is and
isn't covered; A typical
homeowner's policy may'
coverP damage to your home
from Winds, but it won't
cover damage due to storm
surge and inland flooding. A
Ssepaiateflood insurance poli-
cy can be purchased, often
from the same agent from
whom you get your home-
owners insurance.
' Flood insurance can be
bought separately for a
structure (home or busi-
ness) and personal posses-,
sions (contents) so renters
can purchase flood insur-
ance, too.
Go to www.floodsmart.
gov and learn about your
flood risk now. It takes 30
days for a policy to take
effect, so don't wait.

Fire risk

remains

'very high'
The risk of wildfires in
Nassau County remains
"very high" today. Firefight-
ers in the Jacksonville area
battled 19 wildfires over the
Memorial Day weekend -
including nine in Nassau.
Lightning caused 16 of
those fires, according to the
state Division of Forestry.
The Keetch-Byram
Drought Index, a scale for
estimating the dryness of the
soil, is at 626 in Nassau
County. The normal level is
between 261 and 460.
As a result, all outdoor
burning is prohibited under a
burn ban enacted last week
by the Nassau County
Commission.
The largest fire in Nassau
County had burned 70 acres
near the Kings Ferry boat
ramp on the St- Marys River
in West Nassau. Smaller fires
reported since Friday include
one that burned 6.1 acres
west of 1-95 off CR 108, anoth-
er of 3.5 acres east of
Crandall Road and west of
US 17 and a 3-acre fire east of
Murhee Road and west of CR
115A near Hilliard.
Fires of about an acre or
less in size include one on
Frank Ward Road in
Nassauville; another west of
US 17 at the Yulee fire tower;
three more fires in pine for-
est east of Crandall Road and
west of US 17; and one on
Candlewood Road.

"Despite a challenging
economy, more local prop-

Island to get off-road trail


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
The North Florida Trans-
portation Planning Organiza-
tion has approved a $1.8 million
grant for a 7-mile off-road trail
from the Nassau Sound Bridge
to east of the Amelia Island
Parkway.
According to Wanda Forrest
of the TPO, the. 10-foot-
wide pedestrian/bicycle path
is scheduled for construction
in the spring of 2012 by the


Florida Department of
Transportation.
The grant, which is funded
by the U.S. Department of
Transportation, came about
through the efforts of an appli-
cation to TPO in 2005 by the
Amelia Island Trail Project
Team.,
The AIT team seeks to pro-
vide safe paths in Nassau
County for walkers, runners
and cyclists. Once those paths
are created, the Amelia Island
Trail System will become part of


the East Coast Greenway Trail
System, a multi-use trail from
Maine to the Florida Keys.
According to Phil Scanlan,
co-chair of the AfT, this is tlw
first such grant to be awarded in
Nassau County.
Originally, the trail was to
run from Nassau Sound to
Fort Clin6h State Park.
According to Forrest, the proj-
ect was restricted due to wet-
land right-of-way concerns and
p;ojept costs.

W.DM slM)A. ju\ 1 2011 BUSINESS News-Leader


A bright idea to replace the
charming tree lights in down-
town Fernaindina Beach with
ground lighting lhas left resi-
dents and business inll the
dark.
Twinkling tree lights have
been a fixture in the historic dis-
trict for several decades. The
decision to remove them and
place small ground lights at the
base of the trees has cast a shad-
ow of questions.
The intent of city officials
was to save money. This is a
noble initiative-although you
wonder how much the costs of
ihe tree lights impacted the
city's budget. Either way, a
$40.000 contract was given to a
local company to install the
ground lights.
City officials gloated that the
new form of lighting would pay
for itself in five years with the
apparent cost savings. However,
the true cost of the project is
being felt by businesses along
Centre Street.
Instead of a bright, cheerful
downtown district, the area is
now murky and shadowy. This
should be addressed immedi-
ately by the city commissioners
who agreed to do this.
The downtown area needs
to be bright and cheerful and
fun at night. Local businesses
are reaching out in innovative
ways to attract tourists and res-
idents to the downtown area -
both day and night. -
The "Sounds on Centre"
street concerts are an example

PLACE are sup-

The street light decision
comes at a time when other
issues are pre-occupying city
officials. For one, questions are
arising over the city's marin
operations.
The private company con-
tracted to run the city marina
wants to pay less rent. Westrec
officials contend the marina is
generating lower revenues than
anticipated because the city has
not fulfilled its obligation over
dredging.
In addition, a suffocating
process over opening or improv-
ing businesses permeates with-
in the city. The time frame to
secure a building permit and
then complete construction -
can take six months to three
years.
For instance, it took nearly
three years for the old Bank of

There have been reported

officials balked at parking space
when the renovations were pro-
posed. Since then, unexpected
delays forced the popular restau-
rant to miss most of the busy
spring break season.
Now, with summer in full
swing, a new second-floor deck
overlooking the beach is still'
under construction. Hopefully
city officials will become more
accommodating to business
improvements such as these -
and embrace them instead of
deterring them.
City officials are punishing
the entrepreneurial spirit with
costly regulations and delays.
For instance, the haggling over
the waterfront project by Lane
Development Co. from Atlanta
caused that project to sink amid
escalating costs and a softening

should let them shine.

OPINION


VIEWPOINT/PIl ILIP GRIFFIN AND PATRICK J. KEOGH/FERNANDINA BEACH


ermit penalty fees


Readers may recall a letter
to the editor March 30 dealing
with City Building Official Bob
Sasser. Seems the letter writer
planned to install a new furnace
and air conditioning in her
home.
Sasser found out about it
and lined her St. Marys, Ga.,
contractor $600 for failure to
secure a permit. Neither the
homeowner nor her contractor
realized they needed a permit
and had not started any work.
Mr. Sasser apparently levied
the fine for intent to work with-
out a permit. So add $600 to the
cost of replacing the system
and scratch yet another con-
tractor who is willing to work in
the city.
This is yet another example
of the city government's illegal
actions which result in stifling
our community's economic
activity. Why do I say "illegal"?
Let me explain. The city ordi-
nance providing for penalties
when citizens fail to apply for a


building permit is Fernandina
Beach Municipal Code Chapter
22, Article II, Section 108.4
which provides:
"Work commencing before
permit issuance. Any person
who commences any work on a
building, structure, electrical,
gas, mechanical or plumbing
system before obtaining the
Building Official's approval or
the necessary permits shall be
subject to a penalty of four
times the usual permit fee in
addition to the required permit
fees as set forth in the City of
Fernandina Beach Building
Permit Fee Ordinance."
That's an oherous 400 per-
cent but clear enough, and
the city charged the home-
owner a 400 percent penalty for
failure to secure a permit.
Dispensing with the fact that
her contractor had not started
work, the ordinance, though
clear, is in direct conflict with
Florida's statutes. Specifically,
state law at Florida Building


City Building Official Bob Sasser continues
to bully our citizens and extort illegal
fines. This is simply theft.


Code Chapter 1, Section 108.4
provides:
"Work commencing before
permit issuance. Any person
who commences any work on a
building, structure, electrical,
gas, mechanical or plumbing
system before obtaining the
building official's approval or
the necessary permits shall be
subject to a penalty of 100 per-
cent 6f the usual permit fee in
addition to the required permit
fees."
But then Florida law, very
wisely, goes further in explain-
ing the underlying public poli-
cy at Title XXXII, Section
489.113(d) providing:

FREE "LIVING TRUST" SEMINAR
Find out how you may be able to
Transfer your Estate to Your Family Quickly Without
Probate Fees & Minimum Estate Taxes


If you own a home... or have assets worth.at least
$100,000... you owe it to yourself- and your family -
to get the facts on living trusts. If you think you are
protected with a simple Will ... think again ... In many
cases a Will guarantees your estate will go through
probate, which means your family will not be able to
take possession of your estate for many months or even
years!

Plus, if your entire estate, which includes life insurance
and retirement plans, is over $1,000,000 in 2013, your
family may owe estate taxes which could amount to


41-55% of the value of your estate. This means that
your family may have to sell some assets just to pay the
estate taxes!

A living trust can eliminate probate and minimize estate
taxes. Plus, a living trust may protect your estate if you
become incapacitated during your lifetime by avoiding a,
guardianship. This means your estate may be managed
as you see fit, not as a court-appointed guardian sees fit.
To find out more about the benefits of living trusts,
attend one of these free seminars:


Refreshments will be served. Plenty of free parking, Please arrive early; sealing may be limited,


Attend one of these seminars, and you
will receive a FREE,
1 hour consultation ... so you can find out
how a living trust may benefit you
(worth $300).

New England


by rail

My annual trek to Boston is usual-
ly made by air, but I wanted
something different for this
year's trip something a little
more nostalgic and memorable.
After setting aside a portion of each pay-
check for my yearly reunion with my New,
England kinfolk, I was determined to spend
those hoarded dollars in a unique and inter-
esting way, so come
September I'll be riding the
rails from Jacksonville to
Boston.
While it's not the cross-
Canada rail journey that
holds a high spot on my
bucket list, the trip is an
i adventure I'manticipating
A with great delight and a
NEWS- good dress rehearsal for
that other train trip.

VIEWS often rode from

by train. I'm sure it was

accessible.
In 2004, my son and I made a miserable
24-hour plus trip from Florida to New Jersey
on a bus to meet my new grandson. I defi-
nitely did not want to repeat that dreadful
experience, so the bus was not even on the
* list of possible conveyances.
Driving alone to Massachusetts was not
an option and since there was no water-
bound excursion open to me, I decided to
give Amtrak a try.
In the 1800s riding the train meant sitting
on a hard, wooden seat in an open car. The
washroom consisted of a reservoir from
which one dipped water and both genders
used one outhouse-type commode.
Sleeping on the train was made more
comfortable with the invention of the
Pullman Sleeping Car in 1857. Upholstered
leather seats in enclosed cars transformed
into beds at night, replacing the wooden
bunks made passable by bedding passen-
gers brought along.
Train travel has improved a great deal
since then. Today's trains offer Wi-Fi serv-
ice in large, well-appointed bedroom suites
and movies in the lounge.
My roomette on the Amtrak Silver
Meteor Viewliner features a large picture
window apd a wide, comfortable seat The
price of my ticket includes complimentary
meals and bottled water. An attendant will
convert my seat into a bed at night and
bring me coffee and a newspaper in the
morning.

sary this year and with their Guest Rewards

1 VIEWPOINT/RoDNEY BARRETO/FLORIDA WILDLIFE COMMISSION


Help sea turtle hatchlings survive


Some of the most routine habits we
engage in on a daily basis can occasion-
ally have some serious, unintended con-
sequences for wildlife, and that is espe-
cially so for imperiled species. Beachcombers
out for a relaxing walk with the family dog may
not recognize the signs that their presence has
become a threat to nesting shorebirds and that
they should detour around the area.
Homeowners who leave a dirty barbecue grill
in the backyard overnight, or unsecured trash
or foodstuffs where wildlife can access it, can
inadvertently create the catalyst for nuisance
wildlife behaviors -with solutions that are
palatable to no one.
Young sea turtle hatchlings, trying to make
their escape from the dangers of their sandy
birthplace to the relative safety of the water's
edge, may be the poster children for wildlife
that suffer from the unintended side-effects of
human habitation and habit.
Under the best conditions, young sea tur-
tles still experience high death rates, and only
a very small percentage survive to adulthood.
Even before these hatchlings make it to the
relative safety of deeper water, predation by.
gulls and threats lurking in the nearby gurf are
heavy.
Furthermore, if these hatchlings don't head
toward the water-to begin with, there's virtual-
ly no chance even a small percentage will sur-
vive to return to the same beaches where their
ancestors were born, to lay the eggs that are
the foundation for generations to come. .
It usually happens after dark on beaches,
throughout Florida on both the Atlantic and


Gulf coasts. Sea turtles begin nesting in
March with peak nesting from May through
August. Nests incubate in the beach sand
from 45 to 60 days during peak nesting
season, and hatching season extends through
Oct. 31.
As baby sea turtles start to hatch, a depres-
sion in the sand forms over the nest. The
young turtles work their way to the surface
and almost immediately head for the brightest
horizon. Instinct tells these baby turtles that
the sea reflects the greatest amount of light,
and their only chance for survival lies in that
direction away from the darker shadows of
the dunes that line the back of an undeveloped
beach. Even when clouds obscure the stars
and moon, the sea surface provides sufficient
reflected light to lure the hatchlings unless
artificial light from beachfront homes and
businesses interferes with Mother Nature's
grand plan.
The bright light at the front door of people's
homes acts as an after-dark guidepost, wel-
coming them to a place of safety. But for baby
sea turtles, bright, artificial lights splashing
from a home or business toward the beach
send them a false message that the safety of
the water lies in the direction of the building.
It's usually a deadly piece of misinformation
for baby turtles.
Adult female turtles also can suffer from
light-disorientation when they come ashore at
night to lay their eggs. Bright, artificial lights
can cause adult turtles to head in the direction
, of a busy highway or toward .other land-based,
dangers.


Fortunately, there's an easy and inexpen-
sive fix to protect sea turtles from the disori-
enting effects of beach lighting: Simply shield
your lights from shining toward the beach.
If there is a need to light development land-
ward of the sea turtle nesting beach, special
lighting systems are available. They are
designed to eliminate the turtle's confusion as
to which way the water really is.
There's still another common habit that can
have very serious consequences for baby tur-
tles. During sea turtle nesting season, furni-
ture should be removed from the beach at
night because it acts as a barrier to the hatch-
lings. The delay exposes them to a greater risk
of predation. Sometimes furniture proves an
impenetrable barrier that hatchlings can't
negotiate.
Some of the simple things we do and take
for granted on a daily basis can have serious
consequences for wildlife. No matter where
you live in Florida, be it on a rural dirt road or
on the beachfront where sea turtles and shore-
birds nest take a little time to find out about
the wildlife in youi- area and check local light-
ing ordinances if you live on the coast.
Visit MyFWC.com or call your nearest
FWC regional office for information about the
simple and inexpensive things you can do in
your daily routine to help conserve and ensure
the future for Florida's wildlife.
And to those who already make these
minor adjustments to help wildlife survive for
future generations, a sincere thank you.
Rodney Barreto is chairman of the Florida
Wildlife Commission.


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


tHidden treasures'
I would like to start this out by
saying that Amelia Island, as small
as it is, has great hidden treasures
and the most generous small-busi-
ness owners we have ever seen. My
wife and I have resided in several
states throughout the U.S. and have
been pleased around every corner.
Our family couldn't wait to expe-
rience our first Shrimp Festival,
which was better than expected.
We have spent many days at the
beach followed by strolls down
Fernandina's beautiful Centre
Street. We celebrated our nations'
Independence Day on the marina
and have participated in many other
wonderful events like Amelia
Challenge.
Although all of the town's people
did a superb job with Shrimp
Festival, the best community
builder Fernandina has to offer is
Sounds on Centre, which is held
the first Friday of the months of
March through October, for those
of you who haven't joined in on the
fun. The May event was our sixth
visit to what we feel is the essence
of small-town living and we walked
away, we should say rode away, win-
ners. Not only was the music fan-
tastic but the prizes that were so
generously donated by our town's
businesses were grand.
I want to thank all of the spon-
sors for a great night but most espe-
cially Cycling & Fitness Center Inc.
for our new beach cruisers. Hope to
see you next time June 3 at Sounds
on Centre.

Metric
Regarding Cara Curtin's City
Sidebar column for May 20:
There are lots of good sugges-
tions in Ms. Curtin's recent column
titled "I should known," but I need
to take exception to one. It's not
that it is wrong to do what she rec-
ommends; it's just wrong to do it
the way she recommends.
One of the things she encour-
ages everyone (particularly young
people) to learn is the metric sys-
tem. She is almost correct when
she says "a good portion of the
world" uses metric. However, it is.
not just "a good portion"; it is 96
percent, a huge majority of the
world's population. Only the U.S.
continues to cling to outmoded
measures, to our decided disad-
vantage. She says that "most of
Europe" uses Celsius, but Celsius is
part and parcel of the metric system
and so is used not just by Europeans
but by that same 96 percent major-
ity of the world's population.
Learning metric is beneficial,
but learning the metric system is
not done by the means that Ms,
Curtin suggests. In each case she
encourages people to learn how to
take the metric value and calculate
Ye Olde English equivalent: That's'
not what is useful or important. By
converting from metric back into
gallons, inches, ounces and
Fahrenheit a person is prevented
from learning what metric is all
about. Knowing the metric system
does not mean knowing how to con-
vert. Converting modern metric
measures back into Ye Olde English
system is not learning metric; it is
avoiding metric.
Let me use Celsius temperature
as an example of the problem as I
see it Suppose you read or are told
that the temperature outside is 30
degrees Celsius. If you then con-
vert that into Olde English to get 86
degrees Fahrenheit, you satisfy
yourself that you now know the
number in English. However, you
still don't know what 30 degrees
Celsius is, what it feels like. You


CAM CARDOW/THE OTTAWA CITIZEN


quickly forget that it was equiva-
lent to 86 degrees Fahrenheit and
remember only the 86, forgetting
the 30. Therefore, the next time you
hear that the Celsius temperature is
30, you will have to calculate it all
over again. You never do learn any
metric.
What you really need to do is to
"feel" the temperature when it is 30
degrees Celsius and learn that that
is what 30 feels like. Then you can
begin to say that you know the met-
ric system. You will quickly discov-
er that 30 is hot and soon will also
learn that 20 degrees Celsius is
comfortably cool, etc. No calculating
needs to be. done at all!
Our ybung people (and we older
ones) need to learn how long a
meter is, how heavy a kilogram
feels, how much cola is in a two-
liter bottle, and yes, that 30 degrees
is hot. That's what we need to know
because that's what we will be deal-
ing with everywhere on Earth
except in the U.S. Moreover, we
will find it increasingly used in the
U.S. as well.

Slppery slope
One of my concerns about the
commission-friendly short-term
rental proposal now being discussed
is that this will be added to the "slip-
:pery-slope" items such as building
height and density. Once the com-
mission goes down this road, there
, is "no return." Included in the mix
"'may well be subdivisions which,
although they may have covenants
and restrictions which currently
could limit short-term, could be
ignored in the near future. When
you have at least one commission-
er who openly proclaims "now I can
make money on my property near
the beach," we all have to worry.

Fernandina Beach

Special women
There are times in our lives
when we experience joyfulness and
beneficial comfort to both your fam-
ily along with yourself. It is a time
that cannot be expressed by a sim-
ple smile or a word of thanks. The
moment of emotion far exceeds the
plainness of those actions and


words.
That is why I'm writing. I want to
express my feelings on a public plat-
form about two very special women
who quietly, unselfishly and pro-
fessionally have given of themselves
to best guide the young minds to
understand good values and the
next step to learning an education.
These women will never be
removed from my heart, soul and
mind: Mrs. O'Connor and Mrs.
Thornton are teachers at the First
Baptist Jack and Jill school.
Rita Kelly
Fernandina Beach

Homesick
I used to live in Fernandina. I
moved back to Ohio to work in the
steel mill. I love my job running
overhead cranes, but I really miss
the beauty of the beach and the
whole place. Everyone was so
friendly there, even though I was an
outsider. I hope to return this year
for a two-week vacation. I just want-
ed to say hey to everyone and let
you all know you have something to
be proud of. I miss it bad.

Tempest
To accuse me of referring to the
"Tea Party" as Nazis is no small
thing ("Here are the facts about the
Tea Party," May 27). It was a per-
sonal attack on my character and a
totally false accusation.
The essay of mine that you pub-
lished on May 4 ("Fact checking
difficult but what's, the choice?")
made it very clear that I did not
refer to the Tea Party or its follow-
ers as Nazis.
What I had written was clearly
the opposite of what the writer
claims I said, and I quote, "I am not
saying that I think you (Tea Party
and Tea Party members) are Nazis,
what I am saying is that it is a
dangerous thing to blindly follow a
person or a group without ques-
tioning their motives, their true
beliefs and to whom they owe their
allegiance."
Judith Harris
Amelia Island

Divorce cases
With its parades and A+ schools,
Nassau County prides itself on its
family values. Yet our divorce rates
rival the national 50 percent rates
and we avoid the topic. We are los-


ing the minds of half of our chil-
dren. It is time we face our prob-
lems.
In a 2007 divorce case involving
a highly regarded member of our
community, Judge Brian Davis
removed all unsupervised contact
with his children from him based on
a defiocked mental-health coun-
selor passing herself off as an
expert. He did not see or talk to his
sons for more than a year.
Experts expose parental alien-
ation as the malicious dismissal of
a parent and imparts life-long emo-
tional conflicts on the target chil-
dren. It can lead to drug and
criminal activity starting in their
teens. As adults, such children gen-
erally have poor self-esteem,
loath themselves and suffer from
depression and anxiety, proliferating
population-wide social issues. In
2008, the state responded to these
serious problems by enacting new
time-sharing laws and legal lan-
guage, replacing the old cus-
tody/visitation standards for chil-
dren of divorce.
In the '70s, as the divorce culture
began to take root, parental alien-
ation was one parent bad-mouthing
the other parent to the children.
Now, one parent need only bad-
mouth the other in court. A biased
judge can then claim they are pro-
tecting the children and remove vis-
itation. In actuality, judges like Davis
are foolishly abusing their judicial
oversight, empowered to them by
the state, to separate children from
their parents, leading to judicial
parental alienation.
Judicial parental alienation
crushes the target parent and their
children, leaving them powerless.
After decades of social studies
exposing the harsh consequences of
parental alienation, it is time for our
judges to act responsibly by fol-
lowing the recommendations of its
experts and the new state laws.
Judge Brian Davis must put an end
to his judicial parental alienation or
we must terminate his appointment.
Our children and community
deserve better.

tors have read the tragic dramllas of

Ports law to reduce


'burdensome' rules


TAMPA Saying he was
keeping his promise to reduce
burdensome, job-killing regu-
lation, Gov. Rick Scott signed
legislation during a visit to the
Port of Tampa that enables
Florida's 14 deepwater ports
to better compete with other
ports in the Southeast United
States..
House Bill 283, sponsored
by Rep. Dana Young and Sen.
Jack Latvala, removes redun-
dant state requirements estab-
lished in 2000 prior to the cur-
rent federal requirements
adopted in the aftermath of
9/11.
"As the best place for inter-
national companies to import
and export their products,
Florida's 14 deepwater ports
will now be able to compete
with any port in the Southeast
or on. the entire Eastern
seaboard," Scott said. "In
*Florida, we are taking a com-
monsense approach'to reduc-
ing burdensome and expen-
sive regulation so that


businesses can grow and
expand and create the jobs
Floridians need."
The Florida Ports Council
estimates maritime businesses
will realize approximately $3
million annually in direct sav-
ings by not having to under-
go an additional and duplica-
tive criminal history check at
Florida seaports. To provide
for the safety of Florida sea-

'Butterfly nut


OK, so I did it again.
Without even realizing it I
came across, I'm sure, as a
wacko. It all started innocent-
ly enough. I was over in
Gainesville visiting my retired
major professor, Liz Wing,
then spent a night with other
friends. My goal was to buy
flowers and plants for my own
butterfly garden. The
Gainesville Farmers Market is
great for native plants and
such, so my friend Karen and
I headed there early Saturday
morning.
Before long my truck was
full of plants, and butterflies
were solidly on my mind. It
was still early in the day and I
wanted more! So instead of
driving the quickest way back
to Fernandina, I took the long
way, through the little town of
Melrose, to visit Greathouse
Butterfly Farm.
I used to live in Melrose
and I pass through this way
often, but never was there at
the right time to visit the but-
terfly farm. Here was my
chance. I pulled into the
empty parking lot, having just
missed a scheduled tour, and
had the place to myself. I rus-
tled out a staff member,
Marleni Chiappini, and with a
bit of pleading I got her to
show me some of the set up.
She was looking at me quizzi-
cally, seemed like, but, hey,
that's not so unusual in my
world and I didn't think much
about it.


So off we
went around
the farm. It's
a farm like
no other! A
dozen or
more green-
houses cov-
ered the
land, each
WILD with its own
WAYS set of plants
t.... and butter-
flies. As the
Pat season pro-
Foster-Turley gresses, the
species com-
position will change, but the
basic system remains the
same.
It all starts with the eggs.
Butterflies lay eggs only on a
particular species of host plant
that their caterpillars are
genetically primed to feed on.
But butterflies, as adults, will
sip nectar from any number of
flowers. So adult butterflies
are kept in groups with flow-
ers to sip on, males and
females together. After mat-
ing, when the time comes, a
potted host plant or two or
three, are also put in the
enclosure with them. Soon
enough the female butterflies
find this plantsand lay tiny
eggs, about the size of pin-
heads, orange ones for mon-
archs, yellow for swallowtails.
The host plants are then
removed to another enclo-
sure, and more plants added
to feed the caterpillars as they


eat and eat and eat into recog-
nizable sizes. Once the cater-
pillars eat their fill they move
onto branches, curl their back
end up into a J formation, and
solidify into a smooth
chrysalis. The chrysalises are
carefully collected and lined
up in a temperature-controlled
box within another green-
house stocked with flowering
nectar plants. When the adult
butterflies hatch from the
chrysalis the process starts all
over again.
I've seen this scenario
many times in my own back-
yard and most recently, in
Sandra Baker Hinton's
kitchen where her spring but-
terfly project was under way.
But seeing it on an industrial
scale is something else.
It's a wonderful place to
visit, to tour and to marvel.
Greenhouses are full of flow-
ering and host plants to sus-
tain the butterflies through
their amazing life cycle, -
Butterflies fill the air, aud
most anytime it's possible to
find a chrysalis breaking open
with a fully formed adult but-
terfly. You can buy bttferfly
plants here, and chrysalises, "
and butterfly knickknacks and
even butterfly -tarter kit% with
tiny caterpillar and prepared
"caterpillar food" made ui uni
host plants so you can see the
cycle at home for yourself and
your children. And, of course,
if you are planning awpdding
this is the place to oider


dozens of butterflies to
release in your honor, which
will arrive at your doorstep in
a FedEx box.
The day I visited the farm,
only later did I realize that I
was wearing my favorite shirt,
a gaudy conglomeration of
butterflies of all species. So
I'm sure I was pegged as a
"butterfly nut." Well, why not?
Butterflies are as good as any-
thing-to be nutty about.
If you want to visit .


Greathouse Butterfly Farm,
it's about a two-hour drive
from Amelia Island, and will
take you down a few country
roads full of interesting sights

We are pleased to report that our drinking water meets all federal and state requirements. This report will be mailed to customers only upon request and is also avail-
able at the 5390 First Coast Hwy.904-261-0822. Also is viewable on the County Website (www.nassaucountyfl.com) by following the links, departments, NAU then to
this report. We're very pleased to provide you with this year's Annual Water Quality Report. We want to keep you informed about the excellent water and services we have
delivered to you over the past year Our goal is and always hasbeen, to provide to you a safe and dependable supply of drinking water


SOURCE WATER INFORMATION:
* Three ground water wells.
* Water source comes from the Floridan Aquifer.


Source Water Assessment (SWA)
In 2009 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system.The assessment
was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There are
nine potential sources of contamination identified for this systemnl 'th a range pil.-, so ni vm:or.,:. s.aIcpihilIr', levels.
The assessment results are-available on the FDEP Source "' -;. :iieu'. ur Prole..ri.n Pt-r..i'w '-* h .a r .

obtained from ground water sources. Polyphosphate is added for corrosion control, then aerated for the removal of hydrogen
sulfide and chlorinated for disinfection purposes. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility.
If you want to learnm.tore, pleasecontact us. Scott Herring (Pubic Works Director): (904) 261-9452. Customer service
(904) 548-4990.
NASSAU-AMELIA UTILITIES routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws,
rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of
.January 1 to December 31, 2010. Data obtained before January 1, 2010, and presented in this report are from the most recent
testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.
Terms and Abbreviations
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided
the following definitions:
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing
evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. .
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no
known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (Vg/1) one part by weight of analyteto 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts byweight of the
water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water.
MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or
expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water
system must follow.

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for preg-
nant women andyoung children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and
components associated withservice 'lines and home plumbing. NASSAU-AMELIA
.l 'UTILITIES is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control
the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting
for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap
for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are con-
cemed about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information.
on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure
is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or.at
http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes,
streams, ponds,reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of
the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in
some cases, radioactive material, and can pick upsubstances resulting from the pres-
ence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage
treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally occurring
or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater dis-
charges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may corhe from a variety of sources such as agri-
culture, urbanstormwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals,
which areby-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can
also come from gasstations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
- (E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil
and gasproduction and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which
limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems.
The Food and DrugAdministration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contami-
nants in bottled water, which mustprovide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least
small amountsof some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not neces-
sarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contami-
nants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental
Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water
this year. Inorder to maintain a safe and dependable water supply, we sometimes
need to make improvements that will benefit all of our customers. These improve-
ments are sometimes reflected as rate structureadjustments. Thank you for under-
standing.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general
population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing
chemotherapy, persons w1ho have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS
or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk
from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health
care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection
by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe
Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

We at NASSAU-AMELIA UTILITIES would like you to understand the efforts we
make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water
resources. We are committed to insuring The quality of your water. If you have any
questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel. free to call any of the,

piece of the fabric that makes
for a successful classroom. Like
clockwork, Martin arrives at
school to be of assistance to
those in need. She helps to
grade papers and prepare for
upcoming projects. Martin's
easy manner allows for open
rapport with the students. They
look to her as a trusted helping
hand, one they can look up to
and count on.
This dedicated volunteer


has taken her job seriously. We
are a blessed community to
have such a loyal friend in our
midst.
Martin's plans are uncertain
for the upcoming year. Should
her adventures take her away
for an extended period of time,
she will certainly be missed.
Everyone who has been
touched by her generosity
wants to say thank you. Her
smiles will be missed, but they
will never be forgotten. She will
always have a home here with
us!

"It's exciting! It's nice to' see all your hard work in a finished prod-
uct," says Rob Hicks of Amelia A to Z with wife Kim, right, and illus-
trator Sharon Bolton Eells.


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
Lifelong Amelia Island resident Rob
Hicks is no stranger to putting a book
together.
His previous effort, Images of
America: Amelia Island, compiled in
cooperation with the Amelia Island
Museum of History, was lauded as an
exceptional pictorial and historical por-
trait of the island.
"I felt like a children's book about
Amelia Island was a good idea and my
wife, who teaches first grade at
Southside Elementary, suggested an
alphabet book because that would let
us cover a lot more than just the his-
tory," said Hicks.
A guidance counselor at
Fernandina Beach High School, Hicks
suggested art teacher Sharon Bolton-
Eells as the illustrator.
"- When'I first approached her about
the book, I didn't realize how extraor-
dinary her talents were."
Bolton-Eells has taught at FBHS
for 23 years and has always wanted to


illustrate a children's book.
"I studied children's book illustra-
tion at the Rhode Island School of,
Design but this is' my first effort. It
was wonderful to do."
A lot of ideas have come off the
book, adds Bolton-Eells, including
posters, postcards and note cards.
"Most people here haven't seen my
work and I connected with the story."
Kim Hicks was enthusiastic in her
praise of the illustrations.
"Sharon really did a great job. She
exceeded our expectations. Her
images went beyond what I could
imagine."
Hicks said his wife had lots of good
ideas for the text of the book.
"She had good perspective on the
younger kids."
"It was a labor of love," replied his
wife.
Four years in the making, tlie b-.ok
covers all aspects of Amelia Islapd -
including history, geography, economy
and culture in a child friendly format.
Several locals of note are mentioned
including David Yulee, Duncan Clinch


and Abraham Lewis.
"We used the alphabet to sort of
visualize all the things we wanted to
cover in the book, making sure each
letter covered something unique, then
we wrote it," explained Hicks.
"There are two blocks of text for
each letter. One is a rhyming poem
aimed at younger children and the
other is a more explanatory block that
is more relevant for older kids."
"And, too, this gives parents and
grandparents who may be reading the
book to the kids a chance to elaborate
while they read," said Eells.
The most challenging part of put-
ting the book together was the
patience required.
"This is a book we wrote most of in
early 2007. Then we spent hours doing
and redoing layouts and tweaking illus-
trations until we got everything just
right. Only now are we just starting to
see the fruits of our labor."
The $18 book is available at various
locations around town including The
Book Loft, Books Plus, Twisted Sister
and the Monkey Barrel.

A Callahan man was.arrest-
ed Sunday after allegedly threat-
ening to blow up a convenience
store while his estranged wife
was in it.
William Stephan Hill Jr., 41,
of 33620 Meadows Lane,
Callahan was charged with
threatening to discharge a
destructive device and pos-
sessing, making or attempting
to make a destructive advice.
On Sunday, a Nassau Cuunty
Sheriff's deputy was flagged
down as he passed the Flash
Foods at 551758 US 1 in
Callahan. At the store, a woman
claimed that Hill, her estranged
husband, had called her and
told her that he was going to
come to the store and blow it up
while she and another victim'
were inside.
Deputies also contacted the
victim's sister by phone and she
reportedly claimed that Hill had:
also told her he was going to
blow up the store, and that if
police showed up at his house
he would kill them.
The sister also claimed that
Hill had military training in cre-
ating and deploying explosive
devices.
Five deputies traveled to
Hill's house and talked to him
over the phone. Hill allegedly
agreed to leave the house, and
was taken into custody without
any use of force. He allegedly
denied threatening his wife, but
admitted to having the knowl-
edge to make explosive devices..
A search of Hill's residence
allegedly yielded materials con-
sistent with making explosives,
including two 2-liter plastic bot-
tles containing what appeared to
be fuel and a paper ignition sys-
tem.
Hill was arrested and trans-
ported tu th,- N;as.i:u County
Jail.
$10,000 theft
A Callahan store was robbed
to the tune of about $10,000


sometime between May 23 and
24, according to the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office.
On May 24, deputies were
dispatched to Hungry Jack's
Store, 450537 SR 200, Callahan
where they met owner Jack
Thompson and found that two
florescent lights in the front of
the business had been broken
and that someone had entered
the store by breaking a glass
window in the front door. A rail-
road spike was on the floor by
the door. Thompson told
deputies the spike was not there
prior to the break-in, according
to the police report
According to the report, the
burglar or burglars entered the
store's office and removed a
brown paper bag from the bot-
tom drawer of a desk. The bag
contained about $10,000, most-
ly in $20 bills, the report stated.
Photos of the crime scene
were placed into evidence. The
case is pending.

dispatched to Advance Auto
Parts, 1880 S. Eighth St., and
spoke to an employee who said
that when she arrived that
morning, she noticed a water
faucet on the east side of the
building had been left on. Upon

was unsecured and all of the
solid-brass locks usually secur-
ing it were missing.
The employee also told

cles appeared to have been
entered, and a few recycled
items of minimal value seemed

dina Beach mattress store was
arrested Thursday for alleged-
ly diverting company funds to
her own bank account.
Ester Marie Barg, 56, of

then submitting the receipts to
the company for a refund of the
taxes on the purchases.- She
then allegedly transferred the
refunds into her personal

arrested and booked into the
Nassau County Jail.

Florida consumers


'at a crossroads'


University of Florida

GAINESVILLE Consumer
confidence among Floridians
remained level in May, ending
three consecutive months of
decline, according to a new
University of Florida survey.
"W hil coii'iidu n- index has declined
steadily over the last several
months and remained flat this
, iiinuh. there has been some
uncharacteristic volatility in the
individual components," said
Chris McCarty, director of UF's
Survey Research Center in the
Bureau of Economic and Bus-
iness Research. "Of particular
interest are the changes in per-
ceptions of personal finances.
This month, there was a decline
in perceptions of personal finan-
ces now compared to a year ago,
while expectations of personal
finances increased from a
record low in the release last
month. We attribute most of
these changes to fallout from
the Florida budget."
Three of the five index com-
ponents increased or remained
the same. Perceptions of respon-
dents' personal financial situa-
tion expected a year from now
experienced the largest incre-
ase. Perceptions of U.S. eco-
nomic conditions over the next
year and perceptions of U.S. eco-


nomic conditions over the next
five years remained the same.
Confidence in purchasing
big-ticket items such as ears and
appliances and perceptions of
personal financial situations now
compared with a year ago fell.
Although April brought
some positive signs of recovery,
McCarty said the economic
environment is still mixed.
Unemployment dropped to 10.8
percent the lowest in Florida
since-2009 but the rate is still
one of the highest in the coun-
try Median housing prices rose
to $132,700, but McCarty said
prices could decline as a back-
log of foreclosures moves
through the courts. Gas prices
have declined the past two
weeks, but should rise again
with the summer travel season
approaching.
"Looking ahead, Florida is.
once again at a crossroads,"
McCarty said. "It is critical that
the job situation in Florida con-
tinues to improve. Although
there have been gains associat-
ed with a recovery in tourism,
there are several thousand lay-
offs looming in the public sector
and associated industrial. These
will likely show up in th' unem-
ployment rate for July or
August. This will likely keep
consumer confidence at rela-
tively low levels."

The famous bass of Northeast Florida


T he South Atlantic
black sea bass sea-
son reopens today
with a new bag limit
of 15 per day and a minimum
size limit of 12 inches. Local
deep-sea fishermen are
reporting excellent black sea
bass fishing right now at
many of the offshore rock
ledges and hard bottoms.
However, the recent closure
imposed on black sea bass
has forced deep-sea fisher-
men to return their hooked
sea bass back into their deep-
water habitat.
There are three major
species of bass targeted in
both fresh and saltwater in
our local fishing waters, but
are not directly related; how-
ever they all have similar
characteristics.
Saltwater black sea bass
are a dead ringer for freshwa-
ter bass with dark colors and
sporting a large bucket-like
mouth. Black sea bass also
are very structure-orientated,
often living close to a deep-
water rock ledge or hard lime
rock bottom.
Freshwater bass are also
very structure-orientated,
while spending most of their
lives living close to or on a
shallow flat that leads to deep
water, where drop-offs or a
structure are located.
The third type of bass that
many Northeast Florida fish-
ermen target is the ever-popu-
lar red bass, also frequently
called spot tail bass, redfish
or red drum.
Red bass also prefer deep
water ledges, drop-offs and
similar structures, spending
their time migrating from
shallow marshes and flats to
nearby deep water havens.
When weather conditions
are ideal, all three species,
including red bass, black sea
bass and largemouth bass,
certainly acquire seasonal
feeding patterns.
Although black sea bass
can be found in a variety of
water depths from 10-100 feet,
black sea bass showcase feed-
ing patterns that can be


counted on
by skilled
fishermen.
During
stable weath-
er condi-
tions, black
sea bass will
move closer
to a nearby
OUTDOORS structure
--- and actively
TerryLacoss feed. When
passing
storms result in stained water
conditions, sea bass will move
off the structure, relocating
on a nearby sandy bottom,
where they are more difficult
to catch.
Obviously when any
species of game fish is school-
ing and holding close to a
nearby structure, they are
more active.
Red bass have very similar
feeding patterns while migrat-
ing from nearby deep-water
structures into shallow
marshes, tidal creeks and
mud flats. When fishing con-
ditions are perfect, including
a plentiful supply of forage
foods and clear water condi-
tions, red bass fishing is often
excellent.
In many cases, when red
bass are found scattered over
a nearby flooded marsh flat
during a flood tide, they can
be finicky in their feeding
habits and are often easy to
spook when a boat or fisher-
man on foot approaches.
When redfish migrate
from the marsh during a
falling tide, they often congre-
gate at a nearby structure,
including oyster bars, dock
pilings, rock jetties or even a
deep slough located next to a
shallow flat.
Redfish, when found
schooling close to any of the
above structures, offer excel-
lent fishing opportunities,
where bass fishermen are
more likely to enjoy multiple
hookups.
Learn how to catch our
three local basses and you
will become a much better
fisherman.
