City buys new equipment
for golf course managers
Fernandina Beach Commissioners
unanimously approved Tuesday fund-
ing the lease/purchase of maintenance
equipment for the privately managed
Fernandina Beach Golf Course for
$198,780. Commissioners also
approved a change in the course's fee
schedule that eliminates discounts for
The equipment lease/purchase was
not anticipated in the 2010-11 budget
and a transfer of funds needed the,
approval of city commissioners.
According to a city document, man-
agement company Billy Casper Golf
asked for the new equipment and did
the bidding and negotiations for the
lease/purchase of five mowers and

president of the Golf
Czymbor Course Advisory
Board; said the
equipment is badly-
needed because "grass is being pu lled
up rather than mowed." He also noted
the cost would be covered by the
salary for an assistant greenskeeper
that was never hired.
The city will pay about $15,000 in
2011 for the new equipment and about
$46,000 annually after that until June
2015. The monthly payment is $3,883.
According to the contract, the city can
purchase the equipment for $1 each at
the end of the five years.
The equipment was purchased
from Beard Equipment Co. ofM 1ubi k.

Door closing on resort rentals
Four of five city commissioners appeared to agree
Tuesday that keeping limits on vacation rentals would be
best for Fernandina Beach. But Commissioner Eric
Childers disagreed with other commissioners, saying he
believed all residents should have the right to rent out
Commissioner Arlene Filkoff raised the issue for dis-
cussion because of a recent decision by the Planning
Advisory Board not to recommend amendments in the
city comprehensive plan regarding vacation rentals.
Those amendments, written by city staff at the sug-
gestion of the commissioners, could have potentially opened
the door to short-term rentals throughout the city.
Community Development Director Marshall McCrary
noted ptaff had recommended taking out language restrict-
ing resort rentals because it was too specific. He added that,

rent your home.'

while it is unusual to have such specific language in a
comp plan, it would not pose a problem to leave it in.,
City Attorney Tammi Bach reminded commissioners
that every residential zone in the city restricts short-term
rentals meaning rentals less than 30 days except the
high-density R-3 zone. Two other residential zones have

'Clean Marina' celebrated
In recognition of its new "Clean

Marina Manager Joe Springer says
he has been working on getting the
Florida Department of Environmental
Protection's Clean Marina designation
for the city marina ever since he start-
ed on the job a year ago.
According to the DEP website,
Clean. Marinas "receive clean desig-
nations by demonstrating a commit-
ment to implementing and maintaining
a host of best management practices...
designed to protect Florida's water-
Those management practices
attend to environmental issues such as
habitat, waste management, stormwa-
ter control, spill prevention and emer-
gency preparedness, according to the.
Springer said it was very impor-
tant that the Fernandina Harbor
Marina have the designation because
it is often boaters' first and last stop in
Florida. Boaters, he said, will take time
to look for marinas with the Clean
Marina designation because those
marinas honor the natural environ-
ment. According to Springer, there
are only about 240 Clean Marinas out
of more than 2,000 marinas in the state
"Boaters transiting will look for the
Clean Marina flag, or will call and ask
if it's a Clean Marina," said Springer.
"They don't want to take their boats
where someone is spilling oil or trash
in the water."
Besides.the rewards of conserving
Florida's natural environment, the
Clean Marina program also'offers
other advantages, such as promotion
on the DEPwebsite and saving money
by recycling and reusing materials.
There is also the possibility of grant
assistance for pump-out facilities, as
well as potential insurance discounts.

Cats Angels for 10 years
Anyone who has ever known the serene pleas-
ure of having a purring cat lying in their lap will
understand why Beth Hackney is so enthusias-
tic on their behalf.
"We are an advocate for stray, neglected and
abandoned animals and our mission is to reduce
the population of these unwanted animals," said
Cats Angels, Inc. director Hackney.
Working at Petrofirm near the Plantation'
about 11 years ago, Hackney decided something
had to be done to stem the tide of feral cats fight-
ing over mates and territory near her workplace.
She assembled a small group of helpers and
learned the ropes from a national group called
Alley Cat Allies. After purchasing traps to capture
the homeless felines and filing paperwork for
501c3 status, Cats Angels was born in 2001.
Because no local vets.would spay or neuter the
feral cats back then, they were transported to
Georgia for care.
The group has come a long way since those
first struggling efforts.
"The major challenge the group faced at the
beginning was educating the public," said
"There were many people feeding cats, but
the goal was to get these cats fixed and that
there was a 'humane solution' to the problem of
feral cats and their many litters of unwanted kit-
tens through an aggressive spay, neuter, vacci-
Cats Angels does not operate a shelter or a
clinic and they do not accept personal pets that
owners no longer want unless they were previ-
ously adopted from the group or due to excep-
To date, i2,500 cats have been processed
through Cats Angels. They have provided low-
cost spay/neuter for over 11,000 cats, kittens,
dogs and puppies and have found homes for
over 5,000 cats and kittens, and some dogs and
The.group does not receive any funding from
city or county governments and it is not under
contract with either to take in animals.
The vets who now work with Cats Angels do
offer them a discount, but they do not provide
their services for free.
Cats Angels pays for veterinary care through
the fundraising efforts of its all-volunteer organ-
Many of the 50 volunteers have full-time jobs
and can only help out before/after regular work
hours or on weekends.
"No one at CAI is paid a salary. Yet the least
amount of time given each week by a volunteer
is three hours, and many volunteers spend almost
40 or more hours per week. This is a modelvol-
unteer agency," said volunteer Wills Shores.
"Cats Angels has quietly been a huge asset to
this community," said Shores, who lists some of
the group's accomplishments as greatly reduc-
ing the number of un-neutered cats that are fight-
ing and spreading disease in Fernandina; pro-
viding a low cost spay/neuter program for
Nassau County for feral (wild)- ats; providing a

"Never heard of 'em, but I'll try a few,"
the tourist said. So the Southerner dipped a

boiling water and brought up 50 cents'
worth of hot legumes, which he put into a
paper sack, recently invented for the very
purpose of holding hot legumes.
"Not bad," the visitor said, popping a sec-

Assuming his position in the Upper House,
Sen. Bill Nelson represents the state of Florida.
.His legislative actions should reflect both.the
legalities of the nation and the initiatives
brought before him from the Lower House. In
other words, the houses should cooperate.
Is this happening? Not according to all that
we read. Using Sen. Nelson as an example, he
votes the party line 93 percent of the time,
while the House members, using Rep. Ander
Crenshaw as an example, vote the Republican
line almost 100 percent of the time. Rep.
Crenshaw, who represents the Fourth
Congressional District, currently ranks as one
of the least productive members of the House,

Prior to the passage of Obamacare; Sen.
Nelson's constituents maintained a steady bar-
rage of email to him in opposition to the bill.
His documented response was, "It is not per-
fect but it is.important to pass it and fix it later."
When later asked about the "fix," the Senator
has been adept at distancing himself from the
issue. Pass it because the party says so and
worry about it some other time seems to be
the order of the day for our elected officials.
Lack of connection with reality has become
systemic in Congress. They are so impressed
with themselves they can't be bothered with
the small things, like being reminded of why
they are there. As an example, Howard Dean
presumed to prevent Florida representation at
the national convention because he didn't like
an early election in the state.
Another example of things that get played
down in the Obama Aduministration is informa-
tion about prescription drug purchases. This is
something that could prove lifesaving for many
low-income and elderly families. They just
don't seem to care to keep information flowing
to the public.

new study of online pharmacies which showed
that all prescription drugs ordered from sites

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
I see the coutinty and the people
"from away" are getting antsy again.
North and South Fletcher Avenue
have been short-term rental prop-
erties since the 1950's. I know, I
stayed in them for years, and I lived
permanently in one for three years.
I see people are saying they are
changing the nature of the neigh-
borhood. That happened almost 40
years ago when the resorts and con-
dos started arriving.
At one time we raced dune bug-
gies on the beach, that's long gone.
We could camp on the beach
overnight, that's gone too. We could
drive all the way from Fort Clinch to
the south end in the early '70's,
guess what, that is gone too, some
due to Mother Nature wanting the
north beach gone. Then came
re.qlJitiuri .. rind b,:ach ac,e.iii e that
are too .f d' a,1l pa, kinlg h.,t- hllat afti' .
Now the newcomers want to
restrict what people have done here
in Fernandina forever, limit.what
they can do with their property. In
these hard economic times, people
don't need more government regu-
lation. When you moved to Fletcher,
you basically became a resort resi-
dent. Summer rentals are a great
economic impact to Amelia Island. I
see that some are grandfathered in,
but in areas such as Fletcher, what
good does that do?
I lived in Fernandina in the
1970's and '80's. The last time I vis-
ited, a couple of years ago, I didn't
recognize the place. Gridlock on the
roads and people elbow to elbow. I
don't think I would want to live there
today. In fact, to find a comparable
city to Fernandina in which to retire,
I had to move 1,600 miles north to
down east Maine. For those of you
who long for the way things were at
one time, take a look up this way.
Property is reasonable and people
still have the right to do what they
wish with their property.
I returned home today from a
fabulous week at Fernandina, rich-
er in spirit but not in money, thanks
to a letter from the city of
Fernandina, Office of the Chief of
Police. Said letter stated that I was
not in compliance with Article V,
Section 26-101, that I had been fined
$75, and if short-term rentals con-
tinued, I would be fined up to $250
per violation per 'day. I had not a
clue what they were talking about!
My wife has owned property for
the past 39 years in Fernandina and
has rented her condos without ques-
tions. So when I decided seven years
ago to switch from the, Gulf coast
and invest in Fernandina for retire-
ment, I thought it was a grand idea.
My plans were to rent long-term in
one unit and enjoy the other unit
and rent sparely to friends. However,
NATE BEELER/THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER
now I have been informed that my
rental unit in Forest Ridge Village
cannot be rented short-term.
My resident manager was not
aware of it, as well as many others in
the complex., I am most upset
because I have already rented it for
several weeks in June and July. I
spoke with someone in said office
and asked if there, was any way I
could honor my already confirmed
rentals for June and July and she
said no. Being a man of my word, I
now will have to honor my rentals
for "free" because if I am paid, I
could be fined $250 a day! I stand to
lose thousands of dollars for these
two months. What is going on? I do
not believe that the merchants,
restaurant owners, professionals and
government officials want to deny
the benefits of increased revenues
It is difficult for me to under-
stand, how I could have known of
this policy before now. Did anyone
question how I rented when I pur-
chased said condos? And did anyone
ask about my rentals when I paid
taxes, bought furniture, employed
workers, etc.? Of course not! Could
it be that since the state of Florida
has new legislation that says a city
cannot put any new restrictions on
vacation rentals after July 1 that a
certain group wants this passed
quickly before their adversaries
have their say? I do not live full-time
in Fernandina, do not receive the
local newspaper, and was unaware of
this issue until I received my notice
today. Why not notify-all rental own-
ers and inform them of this issue
before fining them?
I cannot believe that a forward-
thinking community could be taken
in and lose significant revenues
because of a few people. Think of the
money and expansions that locals
have invested in their personal busi-
nesses to attract tourism! Where is
the chamber of commerce, the busi-
nesses and professionals in this mat-
Look at the revenues that vaca-
tioners have brought in to this island
through the years. I personally
understand why some residents do
not want short-term rentals in cer-
tain neighborhoods but as I look at
the zoning map, our condo area is
surrounded by renters up and down
First Avenue and South Fletcher
who openly display "Vacation
Rentals" signs. We are not sur-
rounded by a few neighborhoods
but rather they are surrounded by
Please view the zoning map,
reconsider this issue and allow our
voice to be heard. At least, give own-
ers a warning before issuing them a
fine or apply the fine to everyone.
Thankyou for allowing me an oppor-
tunity to vent my concerns.

What happens to the U-turners
on Centre Street? To the bicyclists
who ride on the wrong side of the
street, particularly on South
Fletcher? To persons who do not
use crosswalks? To the little red vin-
tage car that parks in "15-minute
parking" in front of the post office
(parked all day several days a
week?). To the trash receptacles left
at street side on South Fletcher after
the cans are emptied? To marked-off
parking spaces at Main Beach?'To
the music in the benches along

encroaching on the beach with an

We moved to the island the fol-
lowing year and until the police
patrol for dog leasing became an
issue, I enjoyed walking our dog
leash-free for 15 years. We are a
summer resort area and I can agree
that when the beach is crowded a
loose animal can be a nuisance and
the leash law should be enforced;
however, as a full-time resident, I
can tell you that during the winter
months there are no beach bodies to
be disturbed. It was fun to call my
relatives in Connecticut yes, I was
a snowbird on my cell and tell
them that my dog and I were on the
We were on American Beach and
I could look south to Nassau Sound
and north to the pier by the Surf
restaurant, an estimated distance of
seven miles or more, and we were
the only people I could see. It is a
beautiful sight. But according to the
police, I was breaking the law by
not having my dog on a leash.
Sounds like the same people who
wrote the leash law helped draft our
What, we need is consideration
for permanent, taxpaying residents
and not cater to the part-time resi-
dents or renters. It seems practical
to put leash law restrictions when
the beach is being used by bathers;
however, not for 24/7.
During heavy beach usage, why
not a limited use for dogs, say, you
do not have to leash your dog from
dawn to 7 a.m. and from 7 p.m. to
dark during the months of April
through September and no require-
ment to leash Monday through

FRIDAY, JUNE 10.2011/News-Leader
Curses turned to blessings by the hand of God
When I finally realized what they
were doing, I couldn't believe it. In
twos they sat on the stairs that led to
the place where our rooms were
located. Though the hotel looked
clean and well maintained, the fact
the young missionaries were picking
lice out of each other's hair was a lit-
tle unnerving. As we made our way
around them and up the stairs to our
rooms, I couldn't help but feel like
my head was beginning to itch.
Over the years, I've had the privi-
lege of traveling to' many different
countries. While most of the places
we've visited have been extremely
poor, by God's grace, I've never got-
ten sick from contaminated food or
brought home any unwanted bugs..
As we settled into our rooms, I was
beginning to wonder if all that was
about to change. *
The year was
the mid 1990s; the
India. The young
missionaries on the
stairs belonged to
called Youth with a
Mission, or as they
PULPIT called, "Y-wamers."
NOTES Though we were
now staying in the
same building with'
Pastor them, it was nice to
Rob Goyette find out that the
head lice thing was
something they had picked up some-
where else. I later learned that head
lice aren't really a result of a lack of
cleanliness but just the same, I knew
I didn't want any.
As I think back on the missionar-
ies, and the little pest crawling
around their heads, I'm reminded of
a true story I read about many years
ago. In the story, the unexpected
missionaries actually were just a cou-
ple of sisters who found themselves
in a German concentration camp,
their crime, hiding Jews in their
home. Though full of faith and
deeply devoted to the cause of
Christ, the severe outbreak of lice in
their barracks made them wonder if
God had forgotten them altogether.
It wasn't until later that they realized
that behind the apparent curse of
lice, God had actually set them up for
a blessing. Don't ask me how He
does it, I just know He does.
In the case of the Ten Boom sis-
ters, it just so happened that the
unwanted lice were also unwanted
by the German guards. The result
was a tremendous amount of liberty
that other barracks didn't have.
From Bible studies to prayer meet-
ings, the presence of lice, and the
absence of the German guards, was
God's unexpected provision for the
inmates who were desperate to hear
Over and over again I've seen it
happen terrible things turned
around for good. It really is amazing.
As someone once said, "No matter
what hand God is dealt, in the end,
He always wins." I don't know about
you, but to me that brings a lot of
comfort; especially when I know that
to the best of my knowledge I'm
doing the things He's called me to
From Jacob's son Joseph, who
was thrown into a pit, sold into slav-
ery, sent to prison and then made
ruler of Egypt, to the crucifixion of
Christ and then His glorious resur-
rection, sometimes horrible things
are the platform for the greatest
blessings. In the case of Jacob's son
Joseph, his words to his brothers,
who had sold him into to slavery, say
"But as for you, you thought evil
against me; but God meant it unto
good, to bring to pass, as it is this
day, to savedmuch people alive."
In the case of Jesus, and His hor-
rible death, God has turned it all
around, raised Him from the dead
and provided eternal life for all who

Griffin, a beloved loggerhead sea turtle who was a patient at the Georgia Sea Turtle
Center since November 2007, will be memorialized in reef ball on June 17 at a cere-
mony on Jekyll Island, Ga.
Griffin the sea turtle to get
final rest in eternal reef
JEKYLL ISLAND, GA-To
mark World Sea Turtle Day
(June 16) the Jekyll Island
Authority's Georgia Sea
Turtle Center and Eternal
Reefs will memorialize Griffin
and cast his ashes into a reef
ball on Friday, June 17.
The day will also feature
several sea turtles being
released into the ocean after
successful rehabilitation at
The releases will be at the
Great Dunes Park (Shell Road
and North Beachview Drive,
Jekyll Island) at noon, fol-
lowed by the reef ball casting
at the Georgia Sea Turtle
Center, 214 Stable Road,
Jekyll Island, at 1 p.m.
Griffin, an adult male log-
gerhead sea turtle who suf-
fered from a condition similar
to a human stroke, had been a
patient at the Georgia Sea
Turtle Center since
November 2007 and touched
the hearts of countless visi-
tors, staff and volunteers.
Echoing the purpose of
World Sea Turtle Day,
Griffin's memory will live on
through GSTC educational
programs, mission and out-
reach. His ashes will be incor-
porated into a large, eco-
friendly reef ball that will be
placed in a permitted location
in the ocean off Miami in July.
Reef balls are an alterna-
tive to ash spreading in which
cremated remains are incor-
porated into huge, hollow
structures that look like wiffle
balls and foster new marine
growth, replenishing the
world's diminishing natural
"Griffin was valuable to'
help educate the public of
issues affecting sea turtles
and the difficulty in rehabilita-
tion in some cases, and also
helpful with researching vari-
Griffin, the loggerhead sea
ous rehabilitation techniques
even if not successful," stated
Director of the Georgia Sea
Turtle Center, Dr. Terry
Norton. "Because Griffin had
been with the Georgia Sea
Turtle Center for so long and
has taught us so much, we
felt memorializing him in an
Eternal Reef was the very
best way to honor his pass-
Throughout his three plus
years at Jekyll Island's GSTC,
Griffin went through exten-
sive diagnostic testing which
ultimately determined that he
was suffering from a condi-
tion similar to a human
stroke. Long-term treatment
and physical therapy for his
condition were initially
encouraging but he plateaued
and ultimately failed to make
progress. Despite valiant
attempts to rehabilitate,
Griffin could only float and
was unable to. dive.
"World Sea Turtle Day was
originally established to foster
the goals of our organization's
founder, Dr. Archie Carr,"
said David Godfrey, executive
director of the Sea Turtle
Griffin's remains to rest in
this manner seems a fitting
way to honor his memory and
promote goodwill toward sea
turtles and their ocean habi-
An Eternal Reefs "memori-
al reef is specially engi-
neered to entice fish and
other forms of sea life into the
reef, building new habitats in
and around the uneven struc-
ture. Eternal Reefs takes cre-
mated remains and incorpo-
rates them into an
environmentally safe cast
cerient mixture that weighs
between 600 pounds (2 feet
high by 4 feet wide) and 4,500
pounds (4 feet high by 6 feet
wide). Griffin's Reef will
become part of the Golden
Beach Reef Site near the
Miami coastline next month,
on July 11.
"When the Georgia Sea
Turtle Center called us, we
were thrilled to partner in
Griffin's memorial activities,"
George Frankel, Eternal
Reefs CEO, said. "I'm certain
casting Griffin will be a mov-
ing, therapeutic and healing
process giving him a celebra-
tory, living legacy."
On June 17, the public is
invited to share in the cere-
mony and activities when
Griffin's pearl and the reef
ball shell are completed. Staff
and volunteers will then have
the opportunity to personalize
his Reef Ball on site with
handprints, written messages
and other memorabilia in the
damp concrete. Along with
World Sea Turtle Day,
Griffin's Reef Ball ceremony
also coincides with the
GSTC's fourth anniversary.
Griffin will be the second
sea turtle memorialized by
Eternal Reefs. In 2005, Dare,
a female Kemps Ridley sea
turtle stranded in Hurricane
Floyd, was memorialized off
the coast of Topsail Island,
N.C., in partnership with the
Karen Beasley Sea Turtle

team record (31.51) in the 11-
Croft, Purdy and Abby

ing day, each finishing with
two A tires and one B time.

A fetish is an animal carving made from stone, antler
or shell. The.Zuni Pueblo people have used fetishes for
over 1,000 years as totems to access the special powers a
particular animal possesses. By carrying a fetish with
them, they were respecting the animal's "medicine' and
finding and honoring those qualities within themselves.
. The Zuni believe that the world in divided into six
directions north, east, south, west, upper and lower.
Specific animals guard these regions and have particular
attributes and colors associated with them- Black Bear,
guardian of the west; Mountain Lion, the north- Badger,
the south; White Wolf, the east: Eagle, the upper regions,
and Mole, the lower regions.

Maley, who paints from his
imagination. His adventurous,
vibrant work connects to a
primal side of the'human psy-

brilliant in color. From the
first sight of Matisse's cut-
outs, Maley found it impossi-

and not want to fill it with
color. At age 11 he experi-
enced the thrill of actually
making money-from his art.
At that moment the dream of
becoming an artist was now
While achieving his BFA
from Ringling School of Art
and Design, Maley was
exposed to the culinary arts

ural talents in color, texture,
composition and of course
taste. In a short amount of
time, he went from student to
teacher and his skills were in
demand throughout the U.S.
and beyond. Every exotic
location inspired paintings of
exquisite bursts of color that
related to the energy and
rhythm of its people. For the
past 40 years his art has
enlivened the senses, enlight-
