City may borrow without voters' OK

Fernandina Beach Commissioners
unofficially agreed Tuesday to sup-
port, without voter approval, a five-
year city revitalization plan at an esti-
mated cost of $5 to $7 million.
According to City Attorney Tammi
Bach, cities can use a general obliga-
tion bond relying on residential prop-
erty taxes to pay for projects, but that
method requires voter approval before
funds are borrowed.
Revenue bonds, on the other hand,
do not require voter approval and can
be paid back in a number, of different
ways such as sales taxes, utility taxes,
special assessments and other fees.
With revenue bonds, municipalities
can also lock in lower fixed interest

to the community will be difficult.

rates with minimal disclosure and the
ability to refinance the loan.
A comprehensive strategic plan for
fiscal years 2011 through 2016 was
written by the city's community devel-
opment staff and spearheaded by the
nonprofit initiative Forward
Fernandina. The plan's concept was
based on previous workshops, vision-
ing sessions and public meetings on
community revitalization goals.

Ed Preston, planning director for
Baker County, led the discussion on
city goals and strategies. Preston had
facilitated a strategic planning meeting
with city commissioners in February,
during which they identified the top
five projects for the next five years.
During that discussion, commis-
sioners determined it would cost about
$8 million to do four top-five projects
that were not already funded, which

included acquiring the historic post
office building; opening Alachua Street
to vehicular traffic; revitalizing the
downtown and waterfront; and estab-
lishing a new downtown library.
Commissioners on Tuesday overall
appeared to approve the goals out-
lined in the strategic plan, as there
was not much discussion on specific
phases of the plan.
Some of the plan's initial goals
include reconstruction of Front Street
for $1.5 million; improvement of water-
front parks for $2 million; improve-
ment of Second and Broome streets
for $300,000; opening the Alachua
Street railroad crus' ing for $750,000;
stabilizing the exterior of the down-
town pst of fice for $350,000; and reha-
bilitation of the post office building
for $3.5 million, among other projects.

Costs for many of the projects had
not yet been determined, and some
projects could also be accomplished.by
city staff, according to the plan.
City commissioners were also lean-
ing toward hiring a financial expert to
advise them on the best way to fund
. the plan.
City Manager Michael Czymbor
said one of the commission's top goals
would be to retain a financial advisor
to figure out the best way to pay for the
"With a non-voting debt, it gives
cities more flexibility," said Vice Mayor
Tim Poynter. He also noted that, since
a general obligation bond is tied to
property tax, property owners who
lived here longer would pay 1- 1.. har

Southern-style dining

at the Florida House Inn

Fans of the Florida House's
former traditional menu will
be happy to know that real
Southern cooking and fami-
ly-style dining has returned to the
historic inn.
According to Karen Saltmarsh,
who owns the inn with her husband,
Ernie Saltmarsh, the unique family-
style menu was brought back due to

requests from the local community.
"It's what the community was
asking for," says Saltmarsh.
The Saltmarshes have also,
brought in a new cook, Susannah
Sands, who makes everything on the
menu from scratch, including fried
chicken, meatloaf, gumbo, collard
greens, mashed potatoes, gravy, an
assortment of vegetable dishes and
Sands, originally from Virginia,
owned Susannah's Gourmet Pantry

in Avondale for 12 years. The restau-
rant, she says, offered a bistro-style
Southern French menu.
Sands says she has always loved
to cook, learning mostly from her
mother. She says she did not have
restaurant experience when she
started her business in Avondale:
After selling the restaurant, she
taught school at St Paul's Catholic
School in Riverside for eight years.
FAMILY Continued on 3A

Grace Saltmarsh serves up a platter of crispy fried chicken, above,
during the Florida House Inn's grand opening lunch Monday. Long
tables are set up invitingly in the dining room, above left. Traditional
Southern food, cooked from scratch, is served family-style at the
tables shared by diners. The inn was recently renovated by Ernie
and Karen Saltmarsh.

Sands, says she asked
Susannah to do the cooking

reopen the kitchen with a
traditional Southern menu.
Although cooking family-
style meals is easier than
cooking meals to order, prepa-
ration still takes a long time,
Sands says, because every-
thing is made fresh. Fried
chicken is on the menu every
day, and other main courses
vary by day and may include
meat loaf, pot roast, gumbo
or fried fish. Sands says, her
homemade biscuits are a
favorite item, as well as her,
seafood gumbo.
"It was real popular in my,
restaurant," Sands says. Her
son Marshall, who is one of
the two other cooks, takes
care of the fried chicken. "My

Bunch noted the city does not
yet have natural gas service,
and commissioners shouldn't
count on it until it happens.

Selby said that he and Jones
would leave library hours alone

stage, and then wait for a mira-
cle for the next phase," Poynter
said. "We need to get one' or
two or three projects done ...
the whole time working toward
getting grants to get those
things done."
'The cost for a general obli-
gation bond is outrageous," said
Mayor Susan Steger. "I'm for
non-voter debt. But getting the-
message out to the community

will be difficult. They'll think
we're pulling a fast one."
Commissioner Arlene
Filkoff said that going ahead
with the strategic plan would
show the community the com-
mission's ability to lead {he
community. She also noted that
financing with revenue bonds
would give the city more flexi-
bility. *
"Do you think $5 million is


enough?" asked Bunch. "I don't
want to spend $7 million and
say we're out of money.... I'm
thinking more along the lines of
$10 million... we'd pretty much
be able to do everything. If we
had $4 million extra, we could
fix up city buildings that need
repair and do other drainage
(projects) ... if we can borrow it
now, while it's cheap."
"Maybe it will be decided
that less is better," said Poynter.
"There's a lot of unforeseens
out there," Bunch said. He sug-
gested the city should move
forward since loan rates are
very low now, and could be
raised in six months.
Czymbor suggested com-
missioners move forward with
finding a financial advisor and
formal adoption of the strate-
gic plan.

Impact fees to pay for

14th Street roadwork

Impact fees will be used to
fund a series of improvements
along 14th Street in
Fernandina Beach, according
to the Nassau County public
works director. The improve-
ments will include turn lanes at
several intersections.
Sidewalks are also planned
along 14th Street, but impact
fees cannot be used to fund
their construction.
The fees are collected from
developers to fund new
growth. The 14th Street
improvements, budgeted at
about $1.75 million, will be
almost entirely funded by the
fees, said Nassau County
Public Works Director Scott
Herring gave an update on
the project's status June 6 at a
meeting of the Amelia Island
Joint Local Planning Agency,
'a combination of the
Fernandina Beach and Nassau
County commissions. Among

the new developments to the
project was the possible addi-
tion of turn lanes on 14th Street
at its intersection with Beech
Street an improvement the
JLPA had long wanted, but
which was not included in the
original plan.
"I've gone back to our con-
sultant who prepared our orig-
inal impact fee study and asked
for a new impact fee study,"
Herring said. "It does appear
preliminarily that those turn
lanes would be impact fee cred-
itable. I think that is going to be
resolved in a very satisfactory
"Thank you for revisiting
that issue," County
Commissioner Danny Leeper
said. "I think the city and the
county are very happy about
The plan also calls for the
construction of turn lanes on
14th Street at its intersections
with Elnm, Fir and Lime streets.
Also discussed was a.plan
to- install sidewalks on 14th
Street between Hickory Street

and Atlantic Avenue. It would
cost about $50,000 to install a
sidewalk on one side of the
street, Herring said.
"The sidewalks are going
to be designed and permitted
on both sides ... so if we can't
do (both) at this time, when
we are ready to do it, it would
already be designed and per-
mitted," he said.
"I would urge both bodies
here and I know money is a'
consideration that we seri-
ously consider putting side-
walks on both sides of the
street," County Commissioner
Steve Kelley said. "I just think
that it would be a tremendous
oversight on our part to think
we're going to come back. It
might be well if we just decid-
ed to spend the extra money
and put sidewalks on both
sides. It's more than just nice -
it really is a public safety issue."
Herring said Thursday that
construction on the improve-
ments would probably start in
the summer of 2012 at the ear-

Felons to pay county fees

The Nassau County
Commission passed an ordi-
nance Monday that would
allow the sheriff's office to col-
lect fees from sex offenders
and convicted felons who are
required to register with the'
"This ordinance would
make the offenders who are
listed here and defined here
pay for the cost of their own
registration that the sheriff's
office incurs," County Attorney
David A. Hallman told the
- -State law requires convict-
ed felons, sex offenders, sexual
predators and career offend-
ers to register in their county
of residence upon their release
from incarceration. The fees,
which would gotowvard defray-
ihg the cost of the registration
program, would be set by res-
olution at a later date, Hallman
"So are we going to be able

to track convicted felons in the -
same way we track sex offend-
ers and sexual predators?"'
Commissioner Stacy Johnson
"There's no database for
that,' said sheriffs office attor-
ney Marlyne -Clark. "Sex
offenders and sexual preda-
tors are required to re-regis-
ter, sometimes annually and
sometimes quarterly.
Convicted felons are not
required to re-register unless
they move."
Hallman said while the reg-
istration fees would not be
onerous, Florida statute
allowed up to a $500 fine for
failure to pay the fees.
'The fees are going to be
anywhere between $10 and
$50," he said. '"The fine in the
ordinance is a criminal fine
associated with a failure to reg-
ister, and that will be enforced
by the county courts."
"There's no jail time with
anything with this?"
Commission Chair Walter
Boatright asked.

"If they fail to register, we
actually go out and arrest them
and put them in the county
jail," said Maj. Mike Sutton of
the' sheriff's office.

Roundabouts 101

An emerging part of the
roadscape on Amelia Island-
is roundabout traffic inter-
sections. They have helped
keep things moving at areas
like the end of 14th Street
where it intersected with the
Amelia Island Parkway. It
was a stop sign before and
was getting backed up many
cars deep. Sadler and
Fletcher was turning into a
real problem during the
busy spring and summer
seasons. Now, these new
roundabouts offer an oppor-
tunity to keep the arteries

Most simply, they are a
merge or yield scenario.
Suggestion number one, and
most important, don't treat it
as a stop sign. Think about
merging onto a freeway, only
at a fraction of the speed.
Look to your left for oncom-
ing traffic and proceed
through the roundabout if
you will not cause someone
to have to slow down -just

whoever is in the roundabout

If there is a third sugges-
tion, it is watch the driver's
eyes of an oncoming vehicle

We are all used to doing this
at four-way stops and the like.
Really, that's all there is to it.

I was attending an out of town conference
last week when my lunch break was shattered
by one of those telephone calls everyone
dreads. My wife was calling. My father-in-law
was in the hospital. He fell getting out of bed
to go to the bathroom in the middle of the
night, gashed his head open and suffered a
stroke. He was disoriented and combative.
I need you to come home, she pleaded.
She'd been up all night and all that day trying
to keep him from getting out of bed and yank-
ing out his IV, snatching off his heart monitor
leads and wandering off. The exhaustion and
weariness in her voice was palpable even
through a telephone speaker several hundred
miles from home.
My bosses were compassionate and' under-
standing. Go, they said. Take care of your fam-
ily. So I hit the road, trying not to drive too fast
but not doing a very good job of it.
My father-in-law, a man whom I've always
looked up to and held in such high regard, a
man who's been, in many ways, more of a
father than my biological father, a man whose
brain and intellect is so keen that he can talk
about everything from high finance to science
to really good books he's read, has been ren-
dered a child. He can't use the bathroom with-
out supervision. He can't figure out what's
going on around him. In a word, he's lost. And
then he'll have a few minutes or maybe an
hour or so of lucidity, which really stinks
because it's then that he realizes he's lost in

We live lives of uncertainty. One foot on the
banana peel and the other in the grave, the old
saying goes. We're all one breath away from
the heart attack that drops us, a hiccup away
from the stroke that puts out the lights but
leaves the house occupied, the cancer that
turns us into carrion, the car accident that
leaves us paralyzed from the neck down, wish-
ing we were dead but powerless to do ever)
that much for ourselves. We're one late pay-.
ment away from bankruptcy, one pink slip
away from the unemployment office.
But we go through our lives whistling and

Property rights
In 2009, the Historic District
Council and staff decided they would
like to impose new rules for arche-
ological preservation on our prop-
erties. Now these plans are part of
the proposed comprehensive plan
that will be voted on by the city com-
mission on Aug. 12. The policies
give the city all-encompassing pow-
ers to enact land development reg-
ulations that will be specified in
months to come. The regulations
may include anything from requiring
a shovel test on your property to fur-
ther testing, excavation, salvage and
mitigation at your cost. The deci-
sion about what is required of you
will rest with the city. Your HDC and
Building Department approvals can
be withheld until you comply.
The new policy also directs the
city to explore the creation of an
archaeology conservation district.
City staff maintain they do not
"intend" to exercise eminent domain,
but the policy allows it. The policy
also adds mitigation burdens to
storm drainage, paving, and under- :
ground utility projects. Won't this
increase costs for new develop-
ments? Won't it increase the assess-
ments you will be charged if you live
in an old neighborhood with poor
infrastructure that you want
In an HDC meeting, "swimming
pools" and "Old Town" were used as
examples for applying the policy. In
the case of Old Town, the city dug up
the streets and easements 13 years
ago with archaeological monitoring
and had a full-blown survey done
before that. With all of this infor-
mation, the city promoted Old Town
as a historic district with .develop-
ment guidelines encouraging prop-,
erty owners to buy in and build out.'
Until now, no.archaeological land
development codes were required. If
this newpolicy is passed, what effect
will it have on the marketability of
our property? How much more will
it cost to build? If you can't build it in
one spot, how much does it cost to
redesign the project, and how much
room does a small urban lot have to
move the structure somewhere else?
The policy's potential scope can-
not be denied. If you care about your
property rights and value, let the
commissioners know.

Six years ago I was invited to play
in the Purple Heart Classic in
Morehead City, N.C. I say invited
but in.reality it was a command per-
formance as the individual running
the tournament was my first com-
pany commander in Vietnam, Dan




When Iarrived, Dan told me the
local Purple Heart chapter was rais-
ing money for scholarships for the
children 6f veterans in the local area.
None of the monies went to the
national chapter, just the local pop-
ulace that included Camp Lejeune
and-Cherry Point Marine Corps Air
Station. *
Dan told me he hoped they could
raise at least $10,000 in order to dis-
tribute 10 scholarships that year. I
called Jack Healan, then the CEO
of Amelia Island Plantation,
explained what was going on and
then inquired if it would be possible
for the Plantation to get involved.
Jack, like me, was a former
Marine. "These are our people Jack.
Is there something we can do?" Jack
shocked me and said, "How about
three days at the Plantation and
unlimited golf for four?" I was both
grateful and impressed by Jack's
generous offer.
Dan was shocked and surprised.
Jack had contributed the single
largest item to be auctioned off in the
post-tournament gathering. It was a
huge success.
And it was not a one-time deal.
Jack and the Plantation made the
same contribution for the next five
years. In that time we raised almost
$10,000 fot scholarships due to the
Plantation's generosity alone.
The Plantation has changed
hands, with Omni taking over and
Jack retiring. Knowing the tough
times we all faced in this uncertain
economy and not knowing how
Omni would react, I cautiously
approached Tim Digby, the new
CEO at the Plantation. Mr. Digby
was gracious and generous. Within
seconds he said, "Whatever we've
done in the past, we will continue
to support. The certificates will be
ready in the morning."
What a class act! Tim never
flinched, never hesitated, he just
stepped up to.the plate and it was
done. We are lucky to have such a
great addition to our community.
Since it was a three-day event I
approached other local courses to
see if they would be willing to con-
tribute a round of golf for our win-
ning bidders. I approached Ed
Tucker at Amelia River first; he
stepped up and donated a free round
for four. Keith Gibson, the pro at the
Golf Club of Amelia Island at
Summer Beach, agreed to do the
same. I then approached The Ritz-
Carlton, Amelia Island. I explained it
to Vicki Baker, executive assistant to
Kate Monahan, The Ritz-Carlton's
manager,, who asked me to write a
letter and said she would forward it
to Ms. Monahan and the executive

committee. I did and a week later I
received a confirmation from Vicki
that The Ritz would donate two
nights for four (two couples) to be
auctioned off. I was pleasantly
shocked and extremely grateful!
Our troops today are experienc-
ing a very .different homecoming
than my generation. And a lot of it
has to do with solid citizens like the
business leaders of our community
- businesses which not only con-
tribute jobs and revenue to our local
community but who also give gen-
erously to oiur patriots.
I will forever be grateful for the
likes of Jack Healan, Tim Digby,
Kate Monahan, Vicki Baker, Jana
Williams, Ed Tucker and Keith
Gibson. These are people we
can look up to and be proud they
are among- us. Please thank them
for representing our community so

Fel-good story
A few years ago, a young man,
who worked for Nassau County was
temporarily assigned to the landfill
in Callahan and instructed to watch
for items that should not be sent to
the landfill, e.g., paint, motor oil,
electronics, etc. He was told that
sometimes people who wanted to
hide their illegal throwaways would .
put them in suitcases.
One day a couple of old, red, -
hard-sided Samsonite suitcases
appeared. He opened them as
instructed and was surprised to find
a number of old-scrapbooks and
photo albums, some very fragile. He
put them aside, threw away the
empty suitcases, and took the
books home, thinking maybe some-'
body threw them away by mistake.
The name associated with these
items was "Laura Winchester." He
decided to check on the Internet
and see if he could locate her. There
was no information at all for that
name, but he kept the scrapbooks
and enjoyed looking at them occa-
Fast forward to this year, 2011.
He decided to check the Internet
again and yes, an obituary for "Laura
Winchester Hawkins" appeared. She
had just died a few months earlier.
The obit told him who the family
members were. He called Laura's
daughter and son-in-law in the
Chicago area and told them he had
these scrapbooks which seemed to
belong to their family. Would 'they
like them? Yes, indeed, they would
contact Laura's sister (that's me)
who lived in Fernandina Beach. So

I feel heir to this wonderful treasure
trove which told Laura's whole life
story, beginning with her early years
in Macon, Ga., and going through
her college years (Agnes Scott col-
lege, Wellesley College and the
University of Michigan) and most
of her married life and family life on
Long Island, N.Y. They ended short-
ly before she moved to Fernandina
SThe very nice man who brought
me the books was Chris Dixon. I
was so impressed with him for being
alert to the meaning of all these
items and for following through in
discovering who the family mem-
bers were. He was impressed with
all the material Laura had collected
- concert programs, restaurant
menus, ticket stubs and vacation
brochures. "She kept everything,"
he said. And so she did,
I have enjoyed so very much
looking through the books which
hold many happy memories. And
my children, who were visiting at
the time and who were fond, of "Aunt
Laura," have enjoyed them also. Her
PhD in biochemistry from the
University of Michigan was impres-
sive for me, for one thing.
Now you may wonder, how did
these wonderful books find their
way into a landfill? Stay tuned.
Laura had.lived in an assisted liv-
ing facility for 12 years, ever since a
diagnosis of early Alzheimer's was
made. For a while she continued to
drive into town to keep up with
her volunteer activities at the
church she loved, St. Peter's, and at
the Barnabas Center which she
helped get started way back when.
She was the second board president.
But as Alzheimer's progressed and
became more and more of a prob-
lem, she began to wander and
had to be moved to the secure
"memory wing." She had a much
smaller room with little storage
space, necessitating the weeding out
belongings which she no longer
needed or remembered. Her son,
who lived in Virginia, admits to being
"ruthless" in the things he threw
That's how these wonderful
scrapbooks ended up in the landfill,
but a very alert, very nice young
man kept them for us. And UPS did
a beautiful job of packing them care-
fully and shipping them to Laura's
daughter in Chicago who is enjoying
them also.
Now, is that a feel-good story or
what? And are we not fortunate to
have such a person as Chris working

Time waits

for no one

"Time waits for no one, and it won't
wait for me."
That refrain from the Rolling Stones
never meant much to me as a teenager,
but in my 50's it resounds in my head
and soul as loudly as the speakers in a
rock concert as yet another Fathers' Day
fast approaches.
My dad is 85 years old, and my son is
20 years old. As a father and as a son, the
reality of being both mag-
nifies as each year pass-
es, while I witness. the .
accelerating passage of
time and the fleeting I4
moments I have left to
enjoy the both of them.
In May, I had the won-
derful opportunity of
going with my father to
our high school reunion. OPINIONS
We both attended the FROM
same institution in south- THE
western New Hampshire
he in 1938 and me from GOLDFISH
1973-76. It was nice to see ---...
the old haunt, especially
for my dad, who had not Coleman
been back in decades. Lanngshaw
We flew up, which as
any air traveler post-9/11 knows is about
as convenient and comfortable as riding
a subway or bus at rush hour. I have to
admit that I had concerns about my dad
/ versus TSA, or versus the airlines, as
both entities can make the traveling
experience less than desirable. But to my
surprise and relief, not only was it not
painful, they were extremely accommo-
dating and helpful. They recognized that
I was traveling with a man who no longer
moved at the pace of his younger years,
and that travel was a much different
event than his life before.
But as we both laughed and talked
and reminisced about our times in Cow
Hampshire as kids, the time together
was punctuated by my witnessing the
tolls of age, which as my father com-
mented, "getting old is hell" There were
moments that it crossed my mind. that
one day, undoubtedly sooner than later, I
would be going to another reunion, with-
out my dad. The thought of this reality ,
was hard to accept. But I am so grateful
*that we had this time together, and the
memories for both of us will be carried in
our hearts and souls forever.
And then there is my role as a father. I
am the luckiest man on Earth because I.
have the best son a dad could ever wish
for. He and I have always been extremely
close, and we have always had fun doing
anything we could together. Even now, as
he touches base with me from his college
home in Tampa (where he is attending
the University of South Florida), we
share the big things and little things that
make up our days. But it has also hit me
in my heart and soul that he is a far cry
from that cuddly little boy who used to
run and jump in my arms when I would
return from a trip, or when I would pick
him up from school. I began losing that
child as the years first crept then slowly
but surely sped up, and like such a
cliche, he went from a kid to a young
man in a blink of an eye.
I am realizing that time is a cruel real-
ity, and we unwittingly let it trick us into
thinking it is unlimited and forever. So
often we want time to hurry up, so we
can get to the weekend, or a vacation or
football kickoff, never realizing that it is
stealing precious moments that we can
never bring back.
As another Fathers' Day approaches, I
find myself in the bittersweet existence
of being both a father and a son. Sweet
for all that I have, bitter in knowing that
it is slipping by every day. So for me,
everyday has to be Fathers' Day, because
time waits for no one, and it won't wait
for me.

But the show does not go on forever.
Worse, the part we were given that we thought

just a bit part, after all. A non-speaking role.
Not even a cameo.
And when the lights go up in the darkened

Our voices fail us in our fear and we're as

It hurts to see him like this. I hate the loss

It shouldn't end like this for anyone. It's not

The Fernandina Beach Rotary Club recently welcomed to its weekly
meeting six of the nine local high school graduates who received col-
lege scholarships from the club. Each student was required to meet
the club's stringent guidelines for academic achievement, school and
community involvement to be awarded a scholarship. This year's schol-
arship recipients are: Jenna Ford, a West Nassau High graduate who
will attend Wesleyan College; Davis Bean, who graduated from
Fernandina Beach High and will study at the University of Florida;
Averi Welborn, also a Fernandina Beach High graduate attending UF;
Jacob Authement, who graduated from Yulee High and will study at
UF; Averi Coombs, who graduated from Fernandina Beach High and
will attend IIF; Alex Mazur, a Fernandina Beach High graduate attend-
ing UF; Erica Schmidt from Yulee High, who will study at UF; Brittany
Ross, also from Yulee High, heading to UF; and Stephen Soohoo from

on their face is worth a million
dollars," he noted.
Burkett also relishes being
the one that players seek out to
share their joy at a great round
or hitting a hole in one.
"Even though I've heard
these stories a million times, I
love being the person they can
come to'to talk about it and it
never gets old to me!"
He also enjoys helping moti-
vate and empower his co-work-
ers to be the best they can be at
their jobs.
Burkett moved to Yulee
from Orlando in February 2008
and says he really likes Yulee.
"Yulee has everything I
need. There are great places
to eat for any type of appetite
you have. Some of the best golf
courses I have seen in my life
and at the same time, I am only
10 minutes away from the
beach and only 20 minutes
away from Jacksonville, the air-
port and some of the best shop-
ping malls," Burkett said.
Leisure activities for the
busy single guy include tennis,,
soccer and, of course, golf.
"I also enjoy working on and
riding motorcycles. This has
been a big passion of mine
since I was 17 years old and
occupies a lot of my free time:"
The 25-year-old goes back to
Orlando frequently to see his
folks and the family pets, saying
the visits refuel him. .
"Right now I haven't been
home since February and I m
running on fumes!"

Free fishing Saturday, Sunday

Father's Day is Sunday
and one great way to cele-
brate is by planning a fishing
trip off the waters of Florida.
So if it has been awhile since
you last wet a hook or if it is
something you've always
wanted to try, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
has provided a great opportu-
nity to get dads and their fam-
ilies out on the water. You
won't need a saltwater fishing

license anywhere in Florida
Saturday or Sunday.
The FWC first announced
this opportunity for anglers,
which also included the week-
end of June 4-5, at the April 19
cabinet meeting in Panama
City with the support of Gov.
Rick Scott and Cabinet.
"We hope the public will
take advantage of the license-
free fishing weekend and
reconnect with fishing," said
Nick Wiley, FWC executive

director. "Florida is the fish-
ing capital of the world and
there is no better time than
now to enjoy our many natu-
ral resources."
Not only is recreational
saltwater fishing fun, it is
good for Florida. Each year,
both resident and visiting salt-
water anglers contribute
more than $5.4 billion to
Florida's economy. Visit

A record low for boating fatalities

The U.S. Coast Guard
announced its official 2010
recreational boating statistics
and noted that total fatalities
fell to a record low of 672.
The 2010 record is four
fatalities less than the previ-
otis low in 2004 and is 26
deaths lower than the average
number for the past 10 year.s.
While the drop in fatalities is
a positive sign, the Coast
Guard cautions the number
still represents nearly two
deaths per day and remains
resolute in its commitment to
preventing boating fatalities.
"We're glad to see the

numbers decline," said Rear
Adm. Kevin Cook, director of
Prevention Policy for the U.S.
Coast Guard. "I am optimistic
that the number of deaths and
injuries can continue to be
reduced further because of
the strong commitment to
safe boating from our part-
ners in the states, non-gov-
ernment advocacy groups
and the boating industry."
Total reported' accidents
were 4,604 in 2010, down
from 4,730 in 2009, while
injuries totaled 3,153, down
from 3,358. Property damage
was estimated at $35 million.
' The top five primary con-
tributing factors in accidents
are operator inattention,
improper lookout, operator
inexperience, excessive speed
and alcohol use. Alcohol use
was the leading contributing
factor in fatal boating acci-
dents, and it was listed as the
leading factor in 19 percent of
the deaths.

Statistics indicate a clear
link between safety and boat-
ing education that boaters
who have taken a boating
safety course are less likely to
be involved in an accident. In
addition, almost three-quar-
ters of all fatal boating acci-
dent victims drowned; and of
those, roughly 90 percent
were not reported as wearing
a life jacket.
'Tragically so many of .
these deaths are needless and
could have been prevented
had boaters taken some sim-
pie steps such as taking a
boating safety course,.not
drinking and boating, and
always wearing a life jacket,"
said Cook.

With the annual Amelia Island

and place to extend your summer
listening to the blues at Main
After the Amelia Island Blues
Festival Committee worked dili-
gently to secure magnificent talent
for -h event, they were saddened
to learn of the passing of a true
blues legend. Willie "Pinetop"'

Oberg As sometimes
the blues can be
an expression of
good things coming from bad, the
same day the festival committee
learned of the passing of Pinetop it

learned of Conrad Oberg, a gifted
16-year-old singer, guitar and piano
player from Jacksonville who met
Perkins when he was 10 years old.
As his mentor from that meeting,
Perkins introduced Oberg to other
blues legends including Buddy Guy,
Bob Margolin and Hubert Sumlin,
to name a few.
Visually impaired since birth,
the self-taught Oberg has been per-
forming live for more than 12 years.
He recorded his first album at Sun
Records in Memphis at age nine,
backed by Jerry Lee Lewis' band,
and in addition to opening the 2009

Woodstock anniversary 1I .:i, he
has been performing at major festi-
vals throughout the country with
his adult band for the past six years.
In 2008 Oberg was voted the most
talented musician in the country by
12 million Cartoon Network view-
ers, and featured on its internation-
ally syndicated show "Props!"
Oberg had the privilege of per-
forming with Perkins several times,
most recently at Gallaudet
University in Washington, D.C.,
along with Hubert Sumlin and The

Doll artist to host workshop
For the News-Leader ... -.- . Si

O ne of the premier art
doll makers, Akira
Blount, is coming to
Amelia Island to
teach her own particular style
of doll making.
The workshop is spon-
sored by Amelia Island
Artists Workshop. Blount was
born in 1945 and grew up in
Madison, Wis. She continued
her education at the
University of Wisconsin-
Madison where she graduat-
ed with a bachelor's degree in
art education.
She started making dolls
from cotton stockings in 1970
and they quickly evolved into
a steady source of income.
Over the next nine years her
mastery of needle sculpting
evolved into a style well
known as her own.
In 1979 she moved to
Tennessee with her husband
and two children. Her chil-
dren have since grown and
moved on but she and her
husband still live on 80 acres
in the foothills of the Smoky
"I am attracted to the 'doll"
form for its evocative nature
but my creative impulse has
pushed me beyond the tradi-
tional expression of that form.
Since early childhood, I've
been absorbed by the colors,,
forms, textures and smells of
nature and I have always tried
to incorporate these elements
in my work," says Blount.
"For the past 20 years, I
have progressively used more
natural materials, since they
convey directly those ele-
ments of nature that I love. I
'age' the fabric by over-dying
with rust and tannins to give
the fabrics a similar patina to
the natural materials."'
Blount's work has been
admired and collected all over
the world. Since 1986 she has
been published more than 30
times in magazines as diverse
as American Craft Magazine,
Smithsonian Magazine, Fiber

Doll-making, is a very
personal statement of
who I am. It is a
compilation ofmy
many loves in life,
and seems to flow as
a natural extension of
myself My work is of
an intuitive nature:
The figures tend to
define themselves,
naturally evolving,
rather than being
planned in detail
in advance.'

Duke TIP students
Six local seventh grade Duke TIP students were recently honored by Duke
University in a statewide recognition ceremony honoring students who achieved high
scores on the SAT and ACT tests. Duke University invites students who have
achieved 95 percent or higher on standardized testing to participate in its TIP
(Talent Identification Program) beginning in fifth grade. This organization's purpose
is to identify academically talented students and provide innovative programs to
support the development of their optimal educational potential.
One of the benefits of the program is the opportunity for participants to take the
SAT and ACT exams as seventh graders. Of the TIP students who tested, 39 percent
qualified for the state recognition ceremony.
To qualify for an invitation, students either scored >=20 on the ACT or achieved
SAT scores of >=500 Writing, >=510 Reading or >-520 Math.
Students recognized at the ceremony, held at the University of Florida, included
Palmer Alvarez, Jade Beasley, Tristan Duncan, Mackenzie Monaghan, Jared Smith
and Morgan Waas.
Above left, Jade Beasley and Jared Smith, kneeling, and Mackenzie Monaghan,

a post-ceremony family celebration for his additional achievement of straight A's for
both sixth and seventh grades.

Academy has camps for bored teens

For the third year, Amelia Arts Academy
has recruited a team of professional artists to
solve the age-old problem, "What to do with a
bored teen."
The Summer Teen Art Workshops, which
won the Best Teen Program category in the
Best of Jax for Kids survey in 2009 and 2010,
feature weeklong intensive instruction in a
variety of art forms.
New to this year's workshops are Digital
Music Production and Musical Theater.
During the week of July 25, students will have
the opportunity to work with Frank Basile,
professional percussionist and sound engi-
neer to learn the basics of recording and mix-
ing instruments and vocal tracks using music
software on both PC and Mac computers.
Aug. 1-12 will feature Creative Dramatics,
a nitisical theater program taught by founder
of the Peck Community Ensemble, Nanette
During this two-week program, students
will take a retrospective trip through the
1960s and '70s learning about the music and
pop culture that defined these eras.
Autry will work with students on acting,
voice techniques, choreography, and costum-
ing. Each week will culminate with a perform-
Teens at Amelia Arts Academy will also

have two very different ways to learn about
video production. July 5-9, students will have
an opportunity to work with professional
videographer Bill Mullis on the staff of
"Fernandina Live."
Each student will produce their own seg-
ment of this funny spoof on TV talk shows.
Then, the week of July 11, students will learn
to create a show in the same style as Wallace
and Grommet, using stop-motion animation.
Instructor Amanda Orbich will lead her pro-
duction staff in all aspects of creating a clay-
mation movie, from small-scale-sculpture and
set-building to photography and voice-over
recording techniques.
Visual arts are also offered as part of this
award-winning program. June 20, a begin-
ning/intermediate level drawing and painting
class is offered, followed,by a more advanced
workshop the week of June 27.
Photography Beyond the Lens is another
of Amelia Arts Academy's signature pro- '
grams. The week of July 18, teens will
improve their photography and editing skills
and learn how to create photographs without
even using a camera.
