It's one thing to see food on
TV but it's another to get
out there and see cows
and touch them and learn
that not allfood comes
prepackaged in a box.'
CHEF SCOTTY SCHWARTZ
29 SOUTH




Farm



to table



for kids

HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
Many of the children at
the Fernandina Beach
Boys & Girls Club had
never been to an
upscale restaurant before their meal
at 29 South on Third Street last
week. Many had never done much
cooking until Chef Scotty Schwartz
showed them how it was done and
enlisted their help. Many didn't
know how to set a table until Nan
Kavanaugh instructed them before
they served a meal to guests at the
club.
Many had never even seen a cow,
chicken or other farm animals until
their visit to Conner's A-Maize-ing-
Acres family farm in Hilliard.
Imani Liburd was most excited
about getting an egg out from under
a hen and all the farm animals she
saw.
"We saw cows and pigs and hors-
es!" she said.
Tamyra Pierce's big thrill came
from seeing a cow for the first time
and feeding it a special cow cookie.
Club counselor "Miss Gwen"
McIntyre said all the kids were excit-
ed about the trip to the farm.
"It gave them a chance to see
where the food they like comes from.
A lot of them didn't know bacon
comes from a hog and hamburger
comes from a cow."
Restaurant owner and chef
Schwartz and wife Kavanaugh'
shared their culinary knowledge dur-
ing "Restaurant Week" at the Boys &
Girls Club at 907 South 11th St.
Offering city kids a glimpse of
where their food comes from is
important to the chef, who believes
strongly in using only the freshest,
most wholesome ingredients.
Schwartz conveys his passion for
food in the dishes he serves up at 29
South, named Best New Restaurant
in 2006 by Folio magazine.
The restaurant maintains a gar-
den from which gardener Shannon
Kelly gathers ingredients for dishes
served.
In 2009 corporate sponsors
Timberland, Lowe's, Ocean Breeze
Farm and Martex got together to
create a raised vegetable garden for
the kids at the Fernandina Boys &
Girls Club. Kelly is the volunteer gar-
dener at the club.
"We started talking about the gar-
den here earlier in the year," said
Schwartz. "And we worked out a deal
that we wold sponsor the (club)
garden and they could sell us the
excess they have left over after they
gave it to the community. So this
way, we could list them on our menu
as a farming partner and they could
raise money for the club."
Schwartz said the idea for
Restaurant Week came up when he
considered that to kids, the restau-
rant business might be a mystery.
"We know that there's food and
there's servers, but wouldn't it be
nice for them to know what it takes
for us to do what we do and why the
food that they're growing is so
important."
On Monday, Schwartz and
Kavanaugh taught the'kids about
whole foods versus processed foods
and making the right choices at the
grocery store. On Tuesday they visit-
ed the farm.
On Wednesday, Schwartz taught
the kids about the different roles in
the restaurant business. "We talked
about the chef, the server, the busser
and even the dishwasher, who has

County



budget



avoids



tax hike
MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
The county can balance its 2011-
12 budget without raising property
taxes, Nassau County Commissioners
were told Thursday.
The tentative $155.2 million budg-
et proposed by County Manager Ted
Selby would keep millage rates the
same even though there will be $3 mil-
lion less in property tax revenue next
year compared to this year.
Nor is the county able to raise fees
or attract significant new rIcveInucs,
said Shanca Jones,: director of the
county Office of Management and
Budget. Pointing to a drop in building
permit income and fewer library grants
as examples, she said, "We're losing
money left and right."
As a result, expenses will be cut.
More employees will lose their jobs.
The projected county commission pay-
roll for 2011-12 is 300 full-time-equiva-
lent employees, or 15.5 fewer than this
year. That is down 18.3 percent from
the 36,7 FTE county workers employed
by the commission in 2008-9.

Still no


decision


to retain


lobbyist

MICHAEL PARNEI.I
News Leader
Nassau County Commissioner still
can't agree on whether to continue
employing attorney Buddy Jacobs as a
lobbyist next year.
Commissioner Barry Holloway sug-
gested Thursday Jacobs' contract be
extended another year but with a 10
percent cut, the same as was imposed
on each county department.
Commissioner Steve Kelley agreed
that Jacobs should be retained, though
he suggested at perhaps even a lower
level. "He's done a fabulous job," Kelley
said, adding, "No matter what you read
or hear ... there's plenty of money lup
there" in Washington, D.C., home ofI
the federal government, for Jacobs to
seek.
But Commissioner D)anny I.eepr
dissented. "I'm torn ... we're havijig to
lay people off' in county gove rn ent.fl
"I can't support it tonight."
Ieeper said he was not persuaded
there is sufficient funding available alt

Benn WJ esser
Benn W. Jesser,'a chemical
engineer who built oil refineries
and fertilizer plants around the
world and whose work in set-
ting up a garbage composting
plant on Nantucket helped
make that island a leader in-
"zero waste" technology, died
on July 13 in Boston. He was 96
and lived .in Nantucket and:
Amelia Island PanItation, Fla.
A native of Hackensack,
N.J., Mr. Jesser started working
for the engineering firm of
M.W Kellogg Co. during World
War II. In the war effort, he
worked on the company's
gaseous diffusion technology,
part of the Manhattan Project.
After the war,
he designed
and built oil
refineries
and chemical
plants" in
New Jersey,
Louisiana,
and around
Sthe World. He served as vice,
president of operations for the
eastern hemisphere, during
which time he was posted to
London, and in a similar posi-
tion for, the western hemi-
sphere, while..based in New
York. In'1971, he left Kellogg to
become president of U.S. oper-
ations for the Hoechst-Uhde
Corp., a German-based chemi-
cal company. He retired in 1980.
.After moving to Nantucket
in 1984, Mr. Jesser's passion
for gardening and his experi-
ence in managing large con-
struction projects led him to
propose that Nantucket use the
.principle of composting as a
way to solve its increasingly
burdensome and expensive
garbage-disposal problem.
Composting plants that turn
organic waste into topsoil were
then unknown in the U.S. but
did exist abroad. After years of
advocating for such a plant at
Nantucket's town meetings, he
became vice chair of the town's
Solid Waste Committee and
traveled .to Scandinavia and
Japan to inspect composters
and make a proposal.


Nantucket's composer facility
became operational in 1999,
allowing Nantucket now to
recycle some 90 percent of its
solid waste.
Benn Wainwright Jesser was
born on June 10, 1915, in
Hackensack, N.J., to Edward
and Vera Jesser. He earned a
degree in chemical engineer-
ing from Princeton University;
graduating cum laude in 1936.
After a brief stint at Dupont, he
returned to Princeton for a mas-
ter's degree and served on the
chemical engineering faculty
for 31/2 years. Throughout his
life, he remained an enthusias-
tic participant in the school's
alumni associations, reunions,
and activities, including his 75th
class reunion in May. He was a
prodigious fund-raiser for
Princeton and for other caus-
es.
With a career of building,
when Mr. Jesser turned to com-
munity work, he built more. As
a board member of the Girl
Scout Council of Bergon
County, he helped establish a
camp for 500 girls. He served as
trustee and chair of the devel-
opment committee for the
Saddle River, NJ.,'Country Day
School. After one of his chil-
dren, Boniie Benn, died in an
automobile accident, he worked
tirelessly for more than 30 years
as trustee of her school,
Stoneleigh Burnham in
Greenfield, Mass., where he
established numerous scholar-
shilps and where two buildings,.
the Benn Jesser Math and
Science Building and the
Bonnie Benn Athletic House,
are named in his honor.
In addition to being a pas-
sionate gardener he liked to,
say he practiced gardening as
an aerobic xercise- Mr Jesser
loved sports. He played rugby
and was a diver on the
Princeton swim team. He was
an early devotee of downhill
skiing in the U.S., driving to
Vermont in the 1930s and run-
ning a rope tow off the car's
engine. He skied in New
England, the Rockies, and
throughout Europe, including
STuckerman's Ravine in New
Hampshire when he was in his
60s. He loved meeting people
on the chairlift and exulted in'
skiing for free after age 80. He
was a lifelong tennis and paddle
tennis:player, and he played golf
into his 90s, including several
years when' he was, legally
blind. He was a member of the
Sankety Head Golf Club, the
Nantucket Yacht Club, and the
Ocean Club at Amelia Jsland
Plantation.
Mr. Jesser would sail any.
boat available and undertook
many bareboat charters in the
Caribbean and elsewhere. He
loved to tell the story about how
he .sailed into Nantucket on
such a charter and met his wife,
Barbara Gill Jenter, at a party,
after which he jumpedd ship"
so he could spend more time
with her.
Barbara, known as Bobbie,
was his third wife. They were
married for 29 years. His first
wife,'Alice Abeel, died in'1953.
He second marriage, to Darcey
Coogan Clark, ended in
divorce.'
In addition to his.wife, Mr.
Jesser is survived 'by two
daughters by his first marriage,
Wendy Stowe and Penny
Rohrbach of Vero Beach, Fla.,
and a son, Jack Jesser of
Shrewsbury, Vt., and a daugh-
ter by his second marriage,
Dorothea, of Taftsville, Vt. He
was also a father figure to seven
step children, whom he count-
ed as his own, saying he didn't
believe in the word "step":
Bonnie Carr and Tom, David,
and Ray Clark; and Gail Parker
and Carl and Rob Jenter. In
addition, he is survived by 29
grandchildren and 53 great-
grandchildren. Two grandchil-
dren predeceased him. He is
also survived by a brother,
Richard, of Princeton, N.J.
Another brother, Ned, died in
2007.
Mr. Jesser took great pride
in his large family, leading them
often in song, boasting of their
accomplishments, and attend-


ing myriad school and sports
events. He instilled a zest for
life in all he touched. Many of
his family were at his bedside
his last day, singing him his
favorite songs and telling him
and each other stories about
his full and rich life. He will be
missed but his love of life and
boundless spirit will be remem-
bered forever.
A memorial service in
Nantucket is planned for
August. In lieu of flowers, a
donation to Nantucket Cottage
Hospital, 57 Prospect St.,
Nantucket, MA 02554, would
be greatly appreciated.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 20, 2011 NEWS News-Leader


Nassau County Commis-
sioners have lifted a ban on
burning, effective last Friday,
as dry conditions eased.
Commissioners agreed
Thursday night to let the ban
expire the next day. It had
been in place since last month
when unusually dry condi-
tions made outdoor burning a
threat.
Now, the Keetch-Byram
Drought Index (KBDI) in
Nassau County has fallen to
470. The normal level for sum-
mer in North Florida is
between 301 and 500.
The KBDI is a continuous
reference scale for estimating
the dryness of the soil and
duff layers. The index increas-
es for each day without rain
(the amount of increase
depends on the daily high
temperature) and decreases
when it rains. The scale


SST MARYS, Ga. The
National Park Service has
announced release of a man-
agement plan and environ-
mental assessment that out-
lines how seven properties in
Cumberland Island National
Seashore Will be used to fur-
ther its mission of resource
protection and visitor service.
There is a 30-day public
input or comment period on
the plan that will continue
through Aug. 12. After that
date, the National Park Service'
will review the comments'
received and prepare a docu-
ment to finalize the plan.
The "Reserved Estates" on
Cumberland Island stem from
S a provision in the 1972 federal
legislation that established the
seashore park. The legislation
permitted the owners of
improved property to reserve
for themselves and their suc-
cessors or assign a limited
right of use and occupancy
after the properties were
acquired by the federal gov-
ernment.
The reserved estates could
be established by deed or
other agreement for a speci-
fied number of years. or as a
life estate that ended at the
death of tihe wni i or succes-
sors, Upon expiration of each
reserved estate ,iKremirenit,
the rights of use and occu-
pancy granted to the owners,
successors or assignees ter-
minate and full use of the prop-
erty reverts to the park serv-
ice.
Five of the estates estab-
lished under this legisliriion
have expired: one in 2090,
three in 2010 and one in May
of this year In total, the list of
assets associated with these
expired agreements includes
seven tracts comprising
approximately 50 acres of land,
seven 1 idnciiiil lioiisi and a
number of smaller structures.
The primary purpose of the
plan now under public review
is to establish the most bene-
ficial and appropriate use of
the land and structures asso-
ciated with these properties
for the established purpose of
the park.
The plan identifies five
options that could potentially
be applied for ful tireu iit'f lic
properties: reuse for visitor
services, c(ucalion and/or
recreation purposes; reuse for
park operational purposes;
reuse for private residential
purposes; housing for park
staff, volunteers and/or coop-
erators; or reinoval of the
structure.
The plan identifies a "no
action" alternative and an
"action" alternative. The
"action" ;aliirii.iliv allows a
mixture of removal and adap-
tive re-use of structures.
The plan is available for
review in several places.

Continued from 1A
state or federal levels,to justify
a lobbyist contract. "I have no
idea what we're asking'Mr.
Jacobs to do. I think this year we
might have to just forego if,", he
S said.
SCommis-

I'i Boatright was
{. I also leery.
"When you
hear we're
Jacobs approaching
S$15 trillion in
(federal) debt.
.. Don't Want to be part of the
problem," he said.
That prompted Holloway to
withdraw his motion to contin-
ue Jacobs' contract. It could be
brought back for consideration
before the end of the budget
planning in September.
Jacobs was paid $75,000 in
fees plus $5,000 for travel in this
year's budget. He is paid an
equivalent amount by the city of
Fernaiclina Beach as a federal
and state lobbyist for its gov-
ernment.

COUNTY
Continued from 1A
The commission is sched-
uled to meet in August to set
property tax rates and may
still adjust expense budgets.
Two public hearings will be
scheduled in 'September
before final adoption of the
budget, which takes effect
Oct. 1.
"We know for a fact it's
going to change between now
and September. . .This is
a fluid document," Jones
said.
But, after meetings that
began in January and allowed
commissioners to map out
their, priorities with staff, the
parameters are established.
And they are daunting.
"You are trying to provide
the same level of services to
mdre citizens at the same
cost" as in previous years,
Jones said.
The county's population
has risen 5.4 percent since
S2008, consumer prices are up
8.4 percent during that time,
yet the amount of property
tax revenue available has fall-
en by nearly 20 percent, Jones
said.
This is the fourth year in a
row the commission has not
raised the property tax rate
even though such revenue
declined more than $10 mil-
lion during that time.

"That's good news,

"Very good," said com-
mission Chair Walter
Boatright.
"Thank you for doing
more with less," Commission-
er Danny Leeper told staff.
Pointing to federal and
state budgets, Commissioner
Steve Kelley said, "We're in
good shape."
Wyn Fendig of Fernandina
Beach, representing the
Amelia Island-Fernandina
Beach-Yulee Chamber of
Commerce, urged the
commission to continue
what he called "a very,trans-
parent process" and do still
;more.
Local businesses are still
suffering the effects of the
economic crisis, and jobless-
ness remains high, Fendig
said. "It's not going to be a
whole lot better next year,"
he added, urging that plan-
ning for cuts in 2012-13 begin
now.
"Reducing expenses is
essential," he said.
Kelley acknowledged that
a state economist predicted
property values might decline
for another three or four
years in Florida. "We're prob-
ably going to be facing a sim-
ilar shortfall next year," he
said.

The market value of prop-

dropped by more than a third
since 2008,.pinching local gov-
ernments that rely on ad val-
orem tax income for operations.
The total taxable value of
property for operating purpos-
es in-2011 is $6.6 billion, accord-
ing to' preliminary estimates,
continuing a decline that began
in 2007. The taxable value that
year was $8.4 billion.
That roughly 20 percent
decline means less property tax

Upgrade for state


investment pool


TALLAHASSEE The
Florida Treasury Investment
Pool has received a rating
upgrade from the globally rec-
ognized Standard & Poor's
Ratings Services.
Standard and Poor's
upgraded the Florida Treasury
Investment Pool's credit qual-
ity rating from an 'Af' to an
:'A+f' and affirmed the pool's
'S2' volatility rating.
'The news of Standard &
:Poor's rating upgrade for
Florida's Treasury Investment
Pool represents a step in the
right direction for Florida's eco-
nomic recovery and confirms
the continued strength of the
investment pool," said Florida
CFO Jeff Atwater, who over-
sees the Division of Treasury
and approves the investment
policies. "These improved,
strong ratings are a testament
to the hard work, talent aind
dedication to.success in our
Division of Treasury."
The rating upgrade repre-
sents the first time since 2003
that Standard & Poor's has
upgraded Florida's credit qual-
ity rating. The pool has held
the current 'S2' volatility rat-
ing since August 2005. The
'A+f and 'S2' ratings mean that
the Florida Treasury Invest-
ment Pool exhibits "strong pro-
tection against losses from


credit defaults" and possesses
"low to moderate sensitivity to
changing market conditions"
according to Standard &
Poor's, one of the world's lead-
ing independent credit rating
services.
The Florida Treasury
Investment Pool includes both
general revenue and trust
funds in the treasury and funds
of organizations participating in
the Treasury Special Purpose
Investment Accounts. For the
fiscal year that ended June 30,
the treasury dispersed $455
million to its pool participants.
The investment strategies
necessary to implement
Florida statutory requirements
are developed by the Treasury
Investment Workgroup. In-
vestment policies are reviewed
by the Treasury Investment
Committee and approved by
the CFO.
Atwater, a statewide elected
official and officer of the
Florida Cabinet, oversees the
Department of Financial
Services. His priorities include
fighting financial fraud, abuse
and waste in government,
reducing government spend-
ing and regulatory burdens
that chase away businesses
and providing transparency
and accountability in spend-
ing..

WEDNESDAY, JULY 20, 2011 BUSINESS News-Leader


SIAN PERRY
News-Leader


Mark Dennis had carved out
a successful career building the
investment services arm of a
large credit union in Northeast
Florida when the financial crisis
hit and his entire department
was outsourced.
"It wasn't a surprise- I could
see where things were head-
S ed," said Dennis, who immedi-
ately began implementing plans
he had made to start his own
business down the road, as a
way to ease into retirement.
Dennis is forttinate, among
those who have lost theirjobs to
the recession, because he had a
plan even if he was forced to
put it into action far earlier than
he had dreamed.
In these uncertain times,
having ajob exit strategy is crit-
ical so.you can hit the ground
running when the inevitable
happens and be solidly posi-
tioned for the next opportunity,
writes information specialist G.
Kim Dority, founder and presi-
dent of G. K Dority & Associ-
ates, Inc. in Denver, Colo., at
www.rethinkinginformation-
work.com.
"Going through an exit-strat-
egy process provides a number
of benefits when you're in the
.midst of a work environment
where you have no idea about -
and little or no influence over -
the outcomes," Dority explains.
"... You're not waiting for
someone to give you the bad
news; you've already started
moving beyond that inevitabili-
ty into a better future. You have
Taken charge of your career and
your choices, which places you
in the power position. You've'
moved from a passive stance
(waiting for someone else to
decide what happens) to an
active one (you're deciding what
you want your next phase to
look like)."
lFor many, like Dennis, that
"next phase" has taken an entre-
preneurial turn.
In uncertain times people
tend to be resourceful about
finding or creating opportuni-
ties, notes Ralph Ross, deputy
district. director of the North
Florida District Office of the
U.S. Small Business Administra-
tion.
While there is not much
hard data on pink-slipped exec-
utives, "I have see anecdotal

Home sales

down again
The Northeast Florida Asso-
ciation of Realtors announced
there were 1,831 pending sales,
up 34 percent year over year, in
June. But there was a 15.1 per-
cent decrease in actual sales
from a year ago at 1,529.
The average sale price was
up 7 percent over. a year ago
while the median price de-
creased 4.1 percent. Of the
1,529 properties sold, 862 were
traditional sales and 667 were
lender-mediated sales. While
the traditional sales median
increased to $176,000, the
lender-mediated median price
fell to $89,700.
There were 11,776 homes
for sale in June, down 28.8 per-
cent from last year. This
equates to an 8.4 months' sup-
ply. A market is considered bal-
anced when there is a five- to
six-month supply on hand.
"The steadyreduction in the
number of homes for sale is an
encouraging sign for the real
estate markett" said NEFAR
President Dane Leslie. "As the
volume of available properties
continues to decrease, partic-
ularly the lender-mediated prop.
erties, greater 'stabilization
should be on the horizon."
Not all Nassau and St. Johns
County realtors are participants
so reports do not represent the
full extent of sales.

With those 10 seconds and
about 15 more, before Atlantis
disappeared into the clouds,
the 16-hour round trip
became a priceless Kodak
Moment to witness history.
NASA's 30-year shuttle pro-
gram came to an end, and I
had a front-row seat.
Who could have imagined
56 years ago, my boyhood
buddy from Jesup, Ga., would
be a key player in the space
program? While I was stand-
ing in the lush St. Augustine
grass of his Indian River back-
yard, Charles Abner was in
Kennedy Space Center's war
room, helping click down the
seconds of the final launch
that weather odds predicted
would not happen on sched-,
ule.
Even Charles had his
doubts as he kissed his wife,
Nancy, goodbye the night
before. Rain and clouds
threatened a delay, a scrub.
Still, crowds packed

tral Atlantic coast. Estimates
ranged from 250,000 to one

dling 24
hours before
the iffy
liftoff. They
camped
under tarps,
tents and

as if waiting
for the Rose.
Bowl Parade.
Over on
Indian River
Avenue, I
asked.,
"Nancy, how


many guests are you expect-
ing?" With a shrug and a
smile, she said, "Oh, it could
be a 100. I just don't know."
But she had an idea that her
house, pool deck, three-
tiered terrace, her yard and
350-foot dock would be teem-
ing with sightseers. Most peo-
ple she'd know, some she
wouldn't.
Next door, neighbors were
charging $60 a car to park
and potty Nancy rolled her
eyes and shook her head. For
dozens of launches, she and
Charles have unselfishly
unfurled the welcome mat.


Every inch of their front yard
becomes a squeeze-in-if-you-
can parking lot. Inside,
Nancy scurried to make sure
no one went hungry or
thirsty.
In a restaurant several
years ago, Nancy overheard
Canadians talking about not
having a spot to view the
launch. True to the Abner
Way, Nancy walked over and
solved their problem. Friday
morning, her British
Columbia friends were back
to watch the finale.
And just because NASA is
retiring the shuttle program
doesn't mean Charles is plan-
ning to quit, not just yet. He
proved that in 2008, when he
retired as chief engineer of
shuttle processing. He transi-
tioned into a consultant for a
NASA contractor: His engi-
neering expertise is in high
demand as he helps explore
ways for private enterprise to
pick up where the govern-
ment left off.
Since graduating from
Georgia Southern and knock-
ing on NASA's door in 1967;
Charles has had his head in
the clouds. But his feet are
firmly on the ground. He has
a knack for peering around


problems and seeing what's
possible. The Abner home
underscores that.
Twenty years ago, Charles
was jogging by a dilapidated
two-story house. He knew
the river was in the back, but
a jungle blocked the view of
the water. He asked Nancy to
investigate. Vision, timing and
enormous sweat equity
turned the 1880s ramshackle
fish camp into a waterfront
showplace. With help from
his son, Allan, and his
brother, Sonny, Charles
aimed his dock straight
toward NASA's launch pad-10
miles away.
And there I stood on July
8, aiming my camera at
Atlantis, as the 4.5 million-
pound craft defied the weath-
erman's odds and made histo-
ry, propelling four astronauts
out of sight.
Cheers, raucous applause
and dabbing of fears preced- .
ed an eerie wave of silence,
signaling the end of a space-
age era. And then for an
encore, there was a ground-
jarring boom. The soles of my
feet tingled, and the hairs on
my arm lifted as if to salute
the shuttle.

There at the beginning


In the early 1970's an AP
story datelined Cape
Kennedy, Fla, had the follow-
ing headline: "NASA Selects 2
Sites for Space Shuttle Bases."
The AP story went on to say:
"Rep. Lou Frey, R-Fla.,
announced today the United
States will build two bases for
the.space shuttle.- at Cape
Kennedy and at Vandenberg
Air Force Base, California....
Frey said that Cape Kennedy,
American's premier launching
site, would be used for initial
testing of the space shuttle
and that it would be the initial
operational base for this
reusable rocket plane. Flight
testing is expected to begin in
1976, with first manned test
flights scheduled for.1978.
The shuttle, capable of 100 or
more trips into space, is
expected to be operational
late in the decade."
To begin with, in 1969, the
space shuttle stayed in the
budget only because of the
work and hospitality of the
people in Brevard County and
a wrong vote by a member of
Congress from Maryland.
First, a relatively small fund-
ing of the shuttle was pro-
posed in 1969. Congress-man


Joe Karth
(D-Minn.)
was on the
Appropria-
tions
Committee.
"' He moved
', I to strike all
S"' funding for
Frey the shuttle,
saying it
would open
the doors to literally millions
and millions of dollars, a cost
which we couldn't afford.
As a new member of
Congress, I soon found out
that selling the space program
was extremely difficult. I set
up a trip for all members of
the 91st Club, both
-Republicans and Democrats
elected with me, to come and
see an Apollo launch. The
people o(f '. r1 ..iriv -
helped educate the new mem-
bers about the space program
-and its incredible economic
impact from the many spin-
offs. It was a low-key sale but
one that worked.
The House had the unique
way of voting on relatively
minor amendments called a
"teller" vote. It was a five-
minute vote and members


walked down the aisle favor-
ing one side or the other. A
proponent and opponent of
the bill tapped the individuals
on the shoulder and
announced the vote to the
speaker.
We were two votes down
when I saw Congressman
Larry Hogan (R-Md.), a friend
of mine who made the trip to
SBrevard County and who had
become an advocate of the
program. He was hurrying
towards me to beat the dead-
line. Behind him came anoth-
er member of the Maiyland
delegation from the same rela-
tive geographic area whose
constituents normally were
against the space program.
He assumed that Larry was
voting for the amendment to
strike all funding for the shut-
tie and went through. I count-
ed him and Larry, and we
ended up with a tie vote.
Because Karth had made the
motion, it failed.
You would think that was
enough drama, but the next
step besides getting the shut-
tle was to try to convince 49
other states, especially Texas,
that the shuttle launch opera-
tions deserved to be at the
Cape.
With the help of
Congressman Don Fugua (D-
Fla.); chairman of the Manned
Space Subcommittee, and
with launch physics on our
side, we began the long
process of convincing mem-
bers from Texas that they
could have a large and suc-
cessful operation at the
Johnson Space Center. They
couldn't overcome the fact
that "most NASA launches
require an east-west launch-
ing and Cape Kennedy was.
ideal for this type launch.
Solid fuel booster rockets can
be parachuted in the Atlantic
Ocean without endangering
civilized areas."
Although we lost 12,000
jobs in Brevard County going
from the Apollo to the shuttle,
we were able to save many
jobs and help keep alive the
program that was vital, and is
vital to our future.
Lou Frey, Jr, was a Member
of Congress from 1969-79.

'Moonscape is Yulee's future


very once in a while we are given a
glimpse into the future, and the
"moonscape" site of the new shopping
mall along A1A is that, a snapshot of
things to come. You've seen it acres of tree-
less landscape where a miniforest used to be,
no trees left as a buffer along AlA, truckloads
of fill "correcting" the problems of a naturally
low-lying area. And if you've stopped at the
intersection's traffic signal, you might have
smelled it the delicious aroma of diesel fuel,
the sweet smell of money to developers and
the county, as the heavy equipment lumbers
along, doing its work. Take a look, you're
going to be seeing a lot of this.
My concerns and comments regarding the
site are not meant to disparage any of the
area's future tenants. No, my disgust lies sole-
ly with the politicians who've created the
process that allowed'and facilitated the
destruction in the first place. Consider:
Developers were able to cut down every
single tree because the county doesn't have a
tree ordinance.
There was a development agreement
between the county and the developer that
required a tree buffer along A1A. The develop-
er ignored the agreement and cut down all the
trees.
The concept of concurrency doesn't exist
anymore. You remember concurrency, that
troublesome development rule that required
local government and developers to consider a
project's impact on traffic infrastructure. If
infrastructure was insufficient, the local gov-
ernment or the developer had to.make it so.
Well, Gov. Scott and the Florida Legislature
felt that concurrency was a job killer, stifling
development a knee to the gut that is


Florida's economy. They, leg-
islatively, took the knee out of
the gut.
The site, once finished
and occupied, is going to gen-
erate thousands of new
"trips" every day; thousands
of cars and trucks pouring
out onto AIA. Assuming cur-
DEBATE rent infrastructure is inade-
quate and improvements -
AND have to be made, who's going
TAC LE to pay for the upgrades? Well,
since the county has no
Impact fees and the develop-
Ron Sapp er has a propensity for ignor-
ing development agreements,
'I guess it'll be the taxpayer.
Mysteries abound: Why, in this enlight-
ened age, has the county not adopted some
means or method of protecting trees and vul-
nerable landscape? Why are developer agree-
ments so easily cast aside, seemingly with
impunity? Why doesn't.the county have codes
or ordinances that require vegetative or tree
buffers?
SThe biggest mystery of all, however, is this:
if the A1A corridor is a failed road, and it is,
the Florida Department of Transportation says
so, a road that, given that designation, cannot
support additional traffic, how, then can the
county continue'to approve adjacent develop-
ment that will generate additional traffic?
Where is the FDOT? Where is.the
Department of Community Affairs? They've
been "Scotted," relegated to insignificance.
Aside: Friends of mine lament what they
say is the passing of growth management in
Florida. That unfortunate melancholy has


escaped me, however, because I've never real-
Sly bought into the growth management myth.
I've been too close to the process, been to too
many developer-dominated meetings and I've
seen a good law, a great law, the Growth
Management Act of 1985, ripped apart and
manipulated by special interests. The fact is,
we've never had real growth management in
Florida, our economy is too growth-dependent.
It's mutually exclusive, it seems, to regulate
development with one hand and encourage it
with the other..
De-regulation proponents say, "No, growth
management hasn't gone away, it's just been
turned over to local government, the towns,
cities and counties; they're the ones responsi-
ble now." Comforted? The ones who are
dependent on growth for much of their rev-.
enue will be the ones making growth manage-
ment decisions.
Mysteries solved!
Let's try to take some measure of optimism
from all that's happening. After all, we can call
our county commissioners, our city commis-
sioners. It is easier to attend land use meetings
locally rather that driving to Tallahassee. And,
best of all, we can vote.
So, let's hope that the "moonscape" d
eelopment site along AlA is not a glimpse
into our future, it's not a harbinger of
Things to come. Let's resolve, as we see the
concrete poured and the asphalt paved
and the parking lot-friendly trees placed,
that we will demand more of our local
elected officials when it comes to responsible
planning and growth management. After all,
they're the ones in charge now or is it
really us?

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Legal briefs
I'm delighted.that even bleeding
heart liberals recognize the need for
personal safety and are taking gun safe-
ty arid self-defense classes (July 8).
But Ryan Smith, News-Leader staff
writer, boasting about being a card-
carrying member of the American Civil
Liberties.Union (ACLU) is like some-
one bragging about wearing ragged
underwear. It just doesn't make sense.
The ACLU, better known as the
American Sewer Liberties' Union,
claims to advocate freedom of speech
for all. However, the organization is
staunchly anti-American, anti-military
and especially anti-Christian.
The organization has a lengthy his-
tory of ignoring First Amendment
rights of Christians. They will defend
the right to take God's name in vain,
but threaten litigation if someone
changes the word damn God to praise
God. Meanwhile, they file a lawsuit on
behalf of prison inmates who are
denied access to pornography.
Whatever happened to that antiquated
concept of prison being a place of pun-
ishment for violent criminals?
SPerhaps the ACLU.will soon file a
lawsuit claiming inmates are victims
of cruel and unusual punishment
because they are denied petite marsh-
mallows for their hot chocolate on a
wintry morn.
SFurthermore, the ACLU snickers
when a captured American citizen is
tortured to death by terrorists. But
they are outraged if a terrorist gets his
feelings hurt during interrogation at
Guantanamo Bay.
While it is a standard practice of
the ACLU to oppose anything that is
good, decent or honorable concern-
ing America, they do provide for some


laughs. For example, they filed a law-
suit on behalf ofa student in California
who was expelled for violating his
school's dress code. He wore his
underwear up to his armpits and his
pants below his hips. The enlightened
ones claimed his attire-was a form of
freedom of speech; therefore his First
Amendment rights were violated.
It's just a matter of time before the
ACLU files a lawsuit on behalf of some-
one who has acid reflux. Based upon
their convoluted logic, they might con-
tend that burping and flatulence are.
also a form of free speech. Also, I would
anticipate a lawsuit filed against the
maker of the spicy burritos.
But just when you think the ACLU,
hell bent on hurtling America on a
downward spiral of cultural suicide,
can't sink lower, they manage to do
so.
A few years ago, they voiced sup-
port for the North American Man-Boy
Association (NAMBA), a pedophile
organization that advocates for the
legalization of sex between adults and
children.
NAMBA had published a manual
called "Rape and Escape" detailing how
to avoid detection by parents, school
personnel or others who have children
in their care. The information provid-
ed by NAMBAwas used by two pedo-
philes to abuse, torture and kill a child.
The outraged and grief-stricken par-
ents sued NAMBA, but guess who ral-
,lied to the organization's defense? John
Reinstein, then director of theACLU in
Massachusetts, said that although'
NAMBA "may extol conduct which is.
currently illegal" there was nothing on
its website that advocated or incited
commission of any illegal acts, includ-
.ing rape or murder.
Someone needs to tell the ACLU


lawyers that child pornography is
unlawful in addition to being morally
reprehensible. The lawsuit was
dropped in April 2008 after a judge
ruled that a key witness was not com-
petent to testify.
Perhaps someone out there doesn't


know about the ACLU's disgraceful
past. I'd suggest they take scissors to
their ACLU card and obtain a card
from their local library. Then they can
surf the Internet and read about the
"Civil Sewers."
However, I suspect some bleeding

this), we have the following
review comments and glaring
observations.
Glaring observations: The subject
plan is the precocious offspring of
the Forward Fernandina survey
(F2), for which there Were 112
respondents in-a city of about 12,000,
roughly 0.93 percent. Is it reasonable
to interpret the meager results of
such a survey (representing a gener-
ous 1 percent of our residents) as the
mandate to move forward and bor-
row a lot of money to enact wonder-
ful visualizations?
While a healthy number of the
112 respondents agreed to a small
tax increase for all city residents so
that we might move forward to revi-
talize downtown, the riverfront and
Eighth Street, one can only surmise
that these respondents' livelihoods
may be tied into downtown, which is
why they made the effort to respond
to the survey at all, which is why


Public hearing Monday
Femandina Beach Commissioners have scheduled a Forward Fernandina
strategic plan work sessionpublic hearing at 5 30 p.m. Monday at Ciy
Hall The draft plan is available for review at www fbll usF2


they even knew such a survey exist-
ed.
We both responded to the survey
and were among the 75 gathered to
hear the outcome-when Adam
Kaufman unveiled a particularly
stinging result: The overwhelming
response of the 112 expressed little
faith in our city government and
commissioners, past and present. Oh
ye of little faith, if you so doubt our
leaders then why would you turn
over the reins to them to spend big
time and tax us some more during
this period of dire economic down-
turn?
For now, the status quo is not a
bad alternative. We hear visitors say
how postcard-picture perfect, ecolog-
ically unique and historic the area
and beaches are. We are a symbol of
small town USA, just as we are.
Draft strategic plan thoughts and
review comments:
1. How exactly does the subject
plan relate to-the city's
Comprehensive Plan? Shouldn't the
projects enumerated in the strategic
plan be integrated into the five-year
schedule of capital improvement for
public facilities required by objective
8.07 of the Comp Plan? An explana-
tion of the relationship of the two
plans is wanting,
2. The strategic plan is all about
downtown. Then might our beaches
suffer? Our beaches are a major, if
not our main, tourist draw, and beach
renewal is a fundamental part of the


infrastructure of the city of
Fernandina Beach. (Remember that
name change from Fernandina to
Fernandina Beach?) However, the
commission's budget discussion
points out that the city will have a
2011-12 funding-problem in the event
a major storm were to occur this
year. And what about funding to
maintain, extend and replace our
boardwalks? Would there be any
money available to address this vital
and expensive part of our infrastruc-
ture?
3. The city manager's comments
concerning the 2011-12 city budget-
indicate that the city must cut costs
and increase revenues to maintain
the $4 million in reserves recom-
mended by our city auditor. In other
words, the city's current proposed
budget entails deficit spending. Our
federal, state and county govern-
ments likewise face major deficits
forcing job and benefit cuts.
Concurrently, the cost of living for
the average person in Fernandina
Beach has increased significantly:
utilities, food,-gas, etc.
With so many residents retired
and/or on fixed (shrinking) incomes
should we increase taxes for nice to
do projects that, in the words of the
draft strategic plan "... have been on
the collective community 'table' for
years"? (But not in the
Comprehensive Plan.) Why weren't
these projects enacted when times
were a bit more flush?


- farsigh

4. It would appear that:the major
areas of tax increases to implement
the strategic plan would be the real
estate tax for government bonds; or
electric power and natural gas taxes
for revenue bonds. Neither should
be imposed until residents of Fern-
andina Beach go to the polls and vote
to approve the strategic plan.
5. The post office is the elephant
in the room in terms of the vast sum.
of money needed to restore it, esti-
mated at $3.87 million before legal
and management fees are added. But
is it the city's responsibility? If we are
going to continue to fund lobbyist
Buddy Jacobs, the city should fur-
ther investigate the availability of fed-
eral funding and send Buddy in hot
pursuit of federal dollars. The city
expresses interest in the historic
restoration of the building, but not
necessarily ownership of a building
that will be costly to maintain. This
leads us to ask: Is the sum approach-
ing $4 million seed money?
6. Projections on the plan's eco-
nomic benefits to the city would be
helpful for decision-making. For
example, what are projected visita-
tion numbers to the Riverfiont Park
and payback if constructed?
Economic benefits should be based
on the difference between with ver-
sus without an enhanced riverfront
park. See Exhibit A of the subject
plan for the overview plate of the pro-
posed riverfront park. It's great and
might produce widespread economic
benefits throughout the city, or
would it?
7. The method of funding cost
indefinitely for staffing, maintenance
and replacement of facilities must be
addressed. If we built new facilities,
funding maintenance would become


ted?

problematic when the city's budget is
already stressed to provide funds for
existing city facilities.
8. Prior to proceeding with any
plan to fund the goals of the strategic
plan, the.major elements of the plan
should be voted on by the residents
of the city of Fernandina Beach.
Perhaps each goal should stand
alone for the vote.
We urge everyone to become
familiar with the worthy goals of the
draft strategic plan. Read it and
before July 19th voice your opinions
to our City Manager Michael
Czymbor (mczymbor@fbfl.org) and
to our commission regarding the
projects, prioritization of projects and
how to fund. Let them know if you
consider the draft strategic plan far-
sighted or benighted. How to find it:
At the tithe we penned this it was
available in person at City Hall and
on the city website: www.fbfl.us.
(Then, in the search box one must
enter: Draft Strategic Plan. It is not
showcased on our City Hall's web-
site.)
July 19 comments will be
reviewed and the city manager and
staff will suggest revisions to thei ini-
tial draft and send that to the com-
mission and make available to the
Public.
July 25 Town Hall meeting will
be held to review comments and
answer any outstanding questions.
First week of August will pub-
lish a final revised version of the
strategic plan based on the com-
ments and Town Hall meeting Ieed-
back
Third week of August city com-
mission will vote on acceptance of
the strategic plan. This is not a vote
on the funding, just the plan.

Local foods are better in so many ways


Dear EarthTalk: I know
that local food has health and
environmental benefits, but
my local grocer only carries a
few items. Is there a push for
bigger supermarkets to carry
locally produced food?
Maria Fine,
Somerville, Mass.
SBy eating locally sourced
foods, we strengthen the
bond between local farmers
and our communities, stay
connected to the seasons in
our part of the world, pro-
mote crop diversity and mini-
mize the energy intensive,
greenhouse-gas-emitting
transportation of food from
one part of the world to
another. Also, since local
crops are usually harvested at
their peak of freshness and
typically delivered to stores


within a day, customers can
be sure they are getting the
tastiest and most nutritious
forms of the foods they like.
Luckily for consumers and
the environment, local pro-
duce and other foods are now
more widely available than
they have been for decades.
The first national grocery
chain to prioritize local pro-
ducers, perhaps not surpris-
ingly, was natural foods retail-
er Whole Foods, which was
buying from local farmers and
ranchers since it'opened its
first store, in 1980 in Austin,
Texas. Today each of the
company's 270-plus stores in
38 U.S. states priorities local
sourcing so much so that its
customers take it for granted.
Whole Foods' relationships

"'


ments with local producers
serve as models for the lead-
ing national grocery chains,
many of which are beginning
to source some produce local-
ly when the season is right.
Some are taking more ini-
tiative than others. Perhaps
most notable is Walmart.
Back in 2008 the company
committed to sourcing more
local fruits and vegetables to
keep produce prices down
and provide affordable, fresh
and healthy choices. Today
more than 2,800 Walmart
SSupercenters and
Neighborhood Markets
across the country rely on a
diverse network of small local
growers to provide produce
making Sam Walton's compa-
ny the nation's largest pur-
chaser of local produce.
During summer months, at
least one-lifth of the produce
available in Walmart stores is
grown within the same state
as the given store.
The company's Heritage
Agriculture program encour-
ages farms within a day's
drive of one of its warehouses
to grow crops that the compa-
ny would otherwise have to
source from so far away that
freshness would be jeopard-
ized and the fuel burned and
greenhouse gases emitted in
the process would be substan-
tial. While the Heritage pro-
gram currently accounts for
only four to six percent of the
company's total domestic pro-
duce sales, the company is
aiming for 20 percent within
the next few years.
Other big grocery chains
aren't far behind. Safeway,
one of the top three grocery


chains in the country, prides
itself on local sourcing, get-
ling nearly a third of its pro-
duce nationwide from
local/regional growers. In
heavy agricultural regions
like California, the figure can
be as high as 45 percent. The
company has also made a big
Spush into organic products,
just like its biggest competi-
tor, Walmart.
If the chain grocer near
you doesn't do a good job
stocking locally sourced food,
there are alternatives.


Community Supported
Agriculture programs, in
which consumers "subscribe"
to the produce of a given farm
by paying monthly dues that
entitles them to a box of fresh
produce every week, are
more popular than ever, as
are local farmers' markets,
food co-ops and independent
natural foods markets. To find
local food near you, visit Local
Harvest, which lists organic
food sources by zip code and
offers a wealth of resources
for those looking to learn


more about where their food
comes from and how it is pro-
duced.

Whatever necessary


HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
Don Castle says the best
part about his job as an elec-
trician with Nassau County is
working with the Facilities
Maintenance staff. "I like work-
ing with the county because
the people are so good, we
care about each other," he
says.
The most challenging part
is trying to keep county-facili-
ties repaired ard working at
little or no cost to taxpayers.
Despite economic restric-
tions, Castle is dedicated to
doing a good job for the coun-
ty, as evidenced by his per-


formance
during a
recent inci-.
dent where
assistance
was needed
in a hurry.
"A phone
call was
Castle placed and
he was there
just as quick
as he could get in his truck,"
said Tim Milligan, director of
Facilities Maintenance.
"He's there any time you
need him. He's really a terrif-
ic: employee,"
"It's one of the most chal-
lenging jobs I've ever had,"


said the former firefighter.
Castle said he does "what-
ever is necessary," from
installing surveillance cameras
at Goffinsville Park to upgrad-
ing the concession stands at
the Yulee ball field and'every-
thing in between.
The 23-year Yulee resident
cites the peace and quiet as
the best part of living here.
Castle shares his home
with his wife, Doris. The cou-
ple has two children, Jeff and
Donnetta, and a precocious
dachshund named Candy.
Leisure activities for the
Kentucky native include fish-
ing and woodworking.

WEDNESDAY. JULY 20.2011 NEWS News-Leader


POLICE REPORT


This was written by Angela
Daughtry of the News-Leader
from oral and written reports by
the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office and the city ofFernandina
Beach Police Department and
other agencies. Arrest indicates
suspicion of a crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information
about criminal activity can con-
tact the Fernandina Beach Police
Department at 277-7342 or the
Nassau County Sheriffs Office
anonymously by calling 2250147
in Yulee and Fernandina Beach
or 879-2136 in Callahan,
Hilliard and Bryceville. The "We
Tip"program 1-800-78CRIME
also allows callers to leave
anonymous tips.
Runawaywagon
A resident reported his vehi-
cle was stolen with his dog
inside while he shopped at the
Fernandina Food Mart at the
corner of Beech and South 14th
streets July 11, according to a
police report.
The man told Fernandina
Beach Police that he kept his
2010 Dodge station wagon run-
ning while it was parked at the
north corner of the lot. When
he came out of the store, he
found the car was gone along
with his dog, a black -lab mix
that had been sitting in the front
seat, according to the report.
After looking at store sur-
veillance video, police found the
car had been parked out of view
and could not determine what
happened to it.
Later, the man told police he


found the car while looking for
his dog. at 1453 Beech St., about
200 yards east of the store. The
car was still running and the
clog was still sitting in the front
seat.
Police surmised the car,
which was left in "drive," coast-
ed east along Beech Street,

moved away from the fence.
Synthetic marijuana
A father called the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office July 13
'to report that his.17-year-old
son had passed out after being
given a cigarette laced with "K-
2" synthetic marijuana, accord-
ing to a report.
The man suspected of giv-
ing the juvenile the drug report-
edly told police the teen smoked
only a small amount before he
passed out. The man then called
the father, who called 911 upon
arriving at the home on Alger
Road in Wilson Neck and see-
ing his son unconscious on the
floor, according to the report.
The suspect, who was not
named in the report, allegedly

$1,400 was stolen from his vehi-
cle and another reported $325

ed that his glove box had been

Deposit rmssing
A manager of Aden's Mini
Market in Hilliard reported a
store deposit missing for June
16 in the amount of $2,401.70,

The Viking Classic was held last

One of the most difficult shots to master is a high, soft lob shot to a real tight pin place-
ment, such as right over a bunker. The key to this shot is to get the ball to stop quickly

choice for this shot will have to be the 60 degree lob wedge as the standard sand

Fit for a king: The right bait for winners


many area charter
boat captains is to
catch enough live
bait for a full day of kingfish-
ing. Keep in mind charter
clients also enjoy catching
live bait, which is an impor-
tant part of their fishing char-
ter's success.
"Sabiki" bait catchers

OUTDOORS tains keep a

Terry across finder while
keeping
clients right over the school
of baitfish.
The sabiki feathered jigs
are slowly jigged right up
through the school of baitfish
until a strike is detected. The
angler slowly reels the bait
Catcher to the surface of the
water, attracting several more
live baits to the feathered
hooks.
With the live bait well full,
of live cigar minnows, the
charter boat and clients can
now look forward to an excit-
ing day of kingfishing.
When menhaden are scat-
tered along the beaches and
inlets, it takes too much time
for a charter boat to engage
in baitfish "hunting." During
the kingfish season, jigging
up cigar minnows at the St.
Marys sea buoy and at off-
shore wrecks and lime rock
ledges is more dependable.
Menhaden, commonly
referred to by mackerel fish-
ermen as pogies,,are pre-
miere king mackerel live
baits. But once again, be pre-
pared to do a lot of hunting
beforeyour 8- to 10-foot cast
net becomes loaded with fre-
quently hard-to-find pogies. It
seems during most kingfish
tournaments, menhaden can
sense.the time to hide has
ars-ived.
The first step in becoming
successful at cast netting is
purchasing the proper cast
,net when targeting men-
hiden. One of the more popu-
lar cast nets for netting men-


haden is a 10-foot Betts
"Super Pro" cast net. I also
recommend the 5/8th mess
that not only allows the net to
sink fast, but at the same
time, will not gill menhaden.
I always recommend hav-
ing two nets on board your
kingfish boat, A cast net can
become torn or damaged
while cast netting for bait.
A spare net comes in
mighty handy when this hap-
pens. If you have two size
nets on board, you have the
option of using a smaller or
larger net.
Thoroughly cleaning and


storing your cast net properly
will. also prolong the life of-
your net for many fishing sea-
sons.
When live baits are diffi-
cult to catch by jigging or cast
netting, a variety of dead baits
are also etiremely effective
kingfish baits.
Ribbonfish, also called cut-
lass fish or silver eels, canbe
purchased at area bait and
tackle shops. Ribbonfish imi-
tate the blade of a sword,
grow over two feet in length,
have a pointed tail and king-
fish-like head that harbors
razor-sharp teeth.


Ribbonfish have evolved
through the many kingfish
seasons as a premier dead
bait for king mackerel and,
when rigged and trolled prop-
erly, will catch tournament-
size king mackerel when all
other kingfish baits fail. More
than likely it's the ribbonfish's
silvery sides that are easily
detected .in thi l n..i -.kini
body making an easy target
for the foraging king macker-
el.
Be extremely careful of
their long, needle-like teeth.
Once bitten, the sharp teeth
make a razor-like cut and the


bleeding may be difficult to
stop because of a chemical
secreted by their teeth.
Next week during the
Greater Jacksonville Kingfish
Tournament, teams will also
have the option of purchasing
live goggle eyes and blue run-
ners at popular boat ramps
where kingfish teams are
latinching-their-kdngfish -- .
boats.
Other'popular kingfish
bait is silver mullet that can
be cast netted at inlets and
along the beaches. Bluefish
can be caught while casting
small spoons where tidal rips


gather glass minnows. During
your day of competitive king
mackerel fishing, cast a
weighted fresh shrimp down
to the bottom where delec-
table kingfish baits including
whiting and croaker can be
hooked and used as live king-
fish baits.
Having the right dead and
,live baits aboard your king-
fish boat in a timely manner
and targeting area kingfish
waters that have been produc-
tive during recent days are
key for the upcoming Greater
Jacksonville Kingfish
Tournament Good luck..

CROSSWORD/

'Turtle patrol' delivers hundreds of small rewards


SUDOKU
LACES


WEDNESDAY. JULY 20. 2011
NEWS-LEADER/ FERNANDINA BEACH. FL


Some people have a paper
route. I have a turtle route. As
a new volunteer for Amelia
Island Sea Turtle Watch,
every Tuesday morning I
grab a cup of coffee and just
as the sun is coming up set off
for the beach. My mission is
to be on the beach at sunrise
and search for any evidence
that a sea turtle may have
crawled up on the beach to lay
her eggs. I am one of more
than 60 volunteers who take a
day each week between May
and September.
Once on the beach, coffee
in hand, I head north, passing
a variety of high-rise buildings
and The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia
Island resort. Despite all the
population and use of the
beachfront bordering these
properties, the intrepid moth-
er turtles make their way out
of the dark ocean and to the
beach where they themselves
hatched some 25 years ago.
Each Tuesday I hope for a
find, but there has not been a


Find on my
watch, but
there are
S four nests
found by vol-
unteers on
other days.
Mary
Duffy, presi-
RO p dentof
ROM y s Amelia
lTHE Island Sea
PORCH Turtle
Watch, runs
a highly suc-
Dickie cessful pro-
Anderson gram that
dates back to
1985. "This organization is a
tightly-knit group of communi-
ty members who see the
importance of preserving this
important part of the island's
natural heritage. Sea turtles
have been around for 100 mil-
lion years. They were on this
island long before us," Duffy
notes.
There is much to learn
from the organization's


informative website. You can
check for scheduled excava-
tions so you can watch as vol-
unteers dig up a recently
hatched nest to count eggs
and, perhaps, help some little
turtles left behind find their
way to the ocean.
An amazing 90 percent of
all turtles laying eggs in the
United States lay them in
Florida. Our beachesaccount
for one third of the world's
population of loggerhead tur-
tles (we are second only to the
beaches of Oman, in the
Middle East). Turtles laying
Seggs on Amelia Island may
come ashore 4-6 times during
the summer. They come at
night, dragging their 200- to
500-pound body out of the
dark ocean and onto the
beach above the tide line.
SThey fiercely dig a deep hole
and deposit as many as 100
ping-pong ball sized eggs. In
50-60 days the eggs will hatch.
The tiny turtles instinctively
know how to break out of


their eggs and work their way
to the surface of the sand.
Once on the surface they
make their way to ocean and
their chance to survive: Only
1-3 percent of the turtles will
reach adulthood. So the chal-
lenges are.great
The volunteers of Amelia
Island Turtle Watch are deter-
mined to give these unique
and mysterious creatures the
best possible start on their
incredible journeys. Laws


have been passed that limit
the amountof light visible
from the beach. There is great
danger that tiny hatchlings
will mistake artificial light for
the moonlight that should
lead them to sea. Once a nest
is identified it is quickly
marked with the distinctive
yellow triangle of tape. A
stake is dated and numbered.
If necessary, a nest is relocat-
ed to insure its safety.
I take my patrol very seri-

Zuni fetish display
Christopher Rex, artistic director of the Amelia Island
Chamber Music Festival, above, sets up a Zuni fetish
display at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church last month,
a free exhibit in conjunction with the concert "Voices of
the Spirit," featuring Native American flutist R. Carlos. 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.
Rex has one of the top collections of Zuni fetishes in the
world today, and the exhibit drew the best walk-up
crowds of the season.
