American Beach Community
"Ms. Eve does such a great job
of taking care of the rentals and
insuring the building is cleaned
-after each rental and event," said
But Jones' efforts don't stop
there. She and a group of American
Beach citizens including John T
Holmes, Ann Jennings, Joyce
Larson and others have come for-
ward to help maintain the grounds
at the center.

ty's total of what is now some 72
properties," said Milligan.
"With only three grounds main-
tenance employees, it's all they can
do to cut the grass at the ballparks,
beach parks, boat ramps, health
departments and the rest of the
county's facilities."
When Grounds Supervisor Gary
Hetzel went by recently to try to get
the weeds at the center under con-
trol, Jones and the others joined in.
A resident of American Beach
for 10 years, Jones says the
Community Center is "the most
important building there."

"It's a beacon for the communi-
ty," said Jennings.
Holmes is known in the commu-
nity as a very caring, sharing person
with a great green thumb.
"He's the Johnny Appleseed of
the community," said Jennings.
Holmes said that once the
flowerbed had been planted, he
wanted to be able to maintain the
beauty of it.
Larson had been looking for a
way to help out in whatever way she
could and was thrilled when Jones
contacted her with the opportunity.

County ponders

lease option for

sheriff's 1
Nassau County officials are con-
sidering a leasing option to pay for a
new sheriff's administration building.
Representatives of Haskell Co.
pitched the company's recommended
financing options to county officials
Thursday. Representatives of Haskell
and Nekoda, LLC, Haskell's partner;
emphasized the flexibility of leasing
"Almost any scenario can be struc-
tured," said Trevor Lee, a Nekoda
spokesperson. "When we sit down and
we really talk about what the different
needs of the county are and what the
concerns of the county are, almost any-
thing can be structured on the private
side. It can be extremely flexible. And
I think part of the real advantage to us
is the structure of the purchase agree-
A preliminary estimate by Haskell
suggested project costs for the sheriffs
administration facility near $17 mil-
County Manager Ted Selby remind-
ed commissioners that while there are
advantages and disadvantages to
financing a project with a'ond or with

a lease, both share
one similarity.
"Either way, this
is put on the general
ledger basically as a
long-term liability,
from an accounting
standpoint," said
Selby, cornfilti1g19
Boatright that the project
would not become an
asset until the coun-
ty assumed ownership of it.
The primary difference between a
bond and lease is the bond itself, said
Selby. "When we did the courthouse
complex, we had a check for $35 mil-
lion and then we started drawing down
on it, so it became an immediate asset,"
he added.

City plan borrows

up to $5.7 million

Fernandina Beach Commissioners
are scheduled to meet next Tuesday
with financial advisers to consider how
to borrow and repay $5.7 million to
finance five major components of the
Forward Fernandina plan, City
Manager Michael Czymbor said.
Czymbor's proposal does not
include financing renovation of the
downtown post office, which is esti-
mated to cost $3.85 million and likely
. would be done later.
Funding options will be discussed
at a workshop scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday at City Hall. Fina adoption of
the Forward Fernandina plan could
come the following week, on Aug. 16.
"We have tentatively proposed a
debt repayment plan using a combi-'
nation of franchise fees and
(Community Redevelopment Area)
revenue, as well as using any other
sources such as state or federal grants
or other non-for-profit or private
sources to reduce the ultimate total
amount of the borrowing and corre-
sponding debt service," Czymbor
wrote in an email Monday.

al utility charges if franchise fees are
part of the plan.
A revision of the current downtown
CRA was discussed Tuesday night at
a city commission workshop. The city
may consider expanding the current
area to generate more revenue. The
city may use incremental increases in
sales tax revenue within the CRA to pay
for infrastructure projects located with-
in its boundaries, including along Front
Street and the Amelia River waterfront.
The current CRA has failed to gen-
erate sufficient funds to pay for those
improvements, as planned, because of
the economic recession.
Proponents are downplaying the
estimated $9.6 million total cost of the
Forward Fernandina project.

PECK Continued from A
School No. 1. It was renamed
Peck High Schoolin 1911 after
notable African-American edu-
cator William Henderson
Peck '
In 1880, African Americans
in Nassau County petitioned
the state for a high school, and
a four-room building was con-
structed in 1884. The following
year, Moses H. Payne of
Howard University became
Peck, also a graduate of
Howard University, became
Payne's assistant, and when
Payne died in a-yellow fever
epidemic in 1887, Peck took
over as principal, a position he
held for 50 years.
By 1894, Peck had estab-
lished a program serving
African-American students
through the 10th grade, and
by 1908 he had a full high-
school curriculum. The first
senior graduating class in 1908
consisted of two members:
Charlie Roberts and James.
In 1927, a larger school
building was constructed on
the 500 block of South 10th
Street with the same name,
helping to educate African-
American students until full

integration of local schools
occurred in the late 1960s.
Construction of the building
was partially funded by the
Rosenwald Foundation, which
helped build schools for.

from Washington, D.C. He

Now used as a multipur-

the new building. "Now I think
we're facing something that 1
think we all agree needs to be
done and should be done as
soon as possible for the lowest
amount of cost to the taxpayers
to get it done," he added. "We
do have an asset sitting out
there on AIA that's going to be
worth some money now, but
could be potentially worth a
great deal more as the future
moves on for the county."
Commissioner Steve Kelley
concurred. "We get in early,
it's less impact on the taxpay-
ers upfront, and we've got a
buyout plan 10 years down the
road when the economy
changes," he said. "It meets
all of our needs: it gets the
sheriff's office building and
gets us in there with the least
impact on the taxpayers."
Commissioner Stacy
Johnson said she did not favor
the idea of putting down a sig-
nificant amount of money
upfi-ont because of the econo-
my. "I think it'd better serve
the public to keep that money'
in our accounts and be earning
interest on it," she explained. "I
guess if we had a plan as far as
selling the land and paying it
off in the future absolutely, but
just to lower the annual pay-
ment or make debt appear
lower on the books, my first
thought is to keep that cash in
the bank for now."
Boatright added that leas-
ing would allow repairs and
maintenance to the building
during the lease at no cost to
the taxpayers. As Boatright
addressed the subject of
repairs needed for the Nassau
County Judicial Annex, he and
others said "windows" in uni-

Haskell supervised con-
struction of the judicial annex,
which required significant
repairs to 108 windows within
three months of the facility's
opening in April 2004. The win-
dows began leaking, accord-
ing to a report by Bill Howard,
facilities supervisor for the
county, in July 2004 and need-
ed, in most cases, the removal
of brick surrounding the win-
dows and installation of new
sealant and flashing.
Also a subject of discussion
was the size of the building.
Boatright and Kelley who
had spoken with Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves said
Seagraves suggested 40,000 to
45,000 square feet would be
"Now it's time to get down
there and sharpen the pencil to
get down to what we truly
need," said Kelley. "So we're
now looking at bringing (the
size of the proposed building)
down to something that's man-
ageable for the sheriff and
manageable for us financially."
Boatright reinforced the
urgency of the project, which
has been discussed for years
because of deteriorating and
dilapidated conditions at the
sheriff's current building.
Bryan Bedell of Haskell
recommended using the
design-build method, which
circumvents the bid process
and designates a company cho-
sen by the customer to oversee
all aspects of construction.
This method has the advan-
tages of greater accountability,
provided by a "single point of
contact" between the customer
and project manager, and a
quicker timeframe because it
bypasses the bid process
entirely, according to Haskell's

nificant role in consumer con-
fidence rising in July, accord-

Florida survey.
Four of the five compo-
nents that make up the index
increased or remained un-
changed. The biggest improve-
ment was in confidence to pur-
chase big-ticket items such as
cars and appliances.
"Some of this may have to
do with declines in gas prices
during the month of June and
much of July," said Chris.
McCarty, director of the
Bureau of Economic and
Business Research. "This
leaves more money in people's
budgets for other purchases."
McCarty said another rea-
son for the increase was

State unemployment was
unchanged in June at 10.6 per-
cent, ending five consecutive
months of decline (national
unemployment was 9.2 per-
cent as of July 8). Home sales
in Florida were down in June,
but the median price for a sin-
gle-family home ($138,000) in
Florida increased for the
fourth consecutive month.
McCarty warned, however,
that home prices aren't expect-
ed to rise.through the fall..

"First, the processing of a
backlog of foreclosures has
been delayed in the courts,"
McCarty said. "Second is a
change in FHA (Federal
Housing Administration) loans
for higher-priced homes.
During the housing crisis the
FHA raised the price of con-
forming loans to $729,750.
That will fall to. its previous
level of $625,000 making the
sale of higher-priced homes
more difficult and putting
downward pressure on prices."

"When the commission
adopts Forward Fernandina, it
will be for $5.7 million," said
Adam Kaufman, president of
the Amelia Island Fernandina
Restoration Foundation, which
conceived the process that led
to the plan. He emphasized that
the post office renovation is sep-
arate from what's on the table at
this time.
"I have attempted to state
this very point, time and time
again, at every meeting and
workshop that this topic has
come up," Vice Mayor Tim
Poynter wrote in an e-mail
Monday. "I specifically men-
tioned at the last workshop that

The city has set aside
$350,000 to stabilize the post
office building. Funds for

remodeling and renovation
would come from grants or
other sources, but not from
monies borrowed for Forward
Fernandina in the first phase
now under consideration.
Those funds would be used
for Front Street rehabilitation,
$2.9 million; waterfront parks,
$1.4 million; extending Alachua
Street to Front Street, $767,500;
a new library, $614,000; and
Centre Street improvements,
Poynter reminded that all
cost estimates are just that. "The
numbers reported are estimates
and will be refined as we move
forward," he wrote. "This com-
mission asked for estimates so
we could make measured deci-
sions on how to proceed with
some or all of these projects."
Commissioners were sent
by email a spreadsheet with cost
estimates on it on July 22 that
was prepared by Czymbor and
his staff. That was the first pub-
lic use of the $9.6 million total
cost figure for Forward
Fernandina, including post
office renovation numbers,
although at least one commis-
sioner has publicly suggested
the city should borrow a larger
amount now rather than the
lower amount recommended by
the city manager.

Loggerhead turtles

face nesting hurdles

A loggerhead turtle nest next to a pipe used to pump sand for beach construction on
south Amelia Island was moved farther down the beach by Amelia Island Sea Turtle
Watch volunteers. Turtle nests are protected by wooden posts and caution tape in
order to ensure the safety of the eggs, below.


For the News-Leader

The beach is enjoyed every
year by millions of people, but
humans are not the only visitors
to the shores along the East
Coast. Loggerhead turtles
come ashore during the sum-
mer months to dig nests and
lay their eggs.
Locals and tourists who
have visited the coastal beach-
es of Amelia Island this sum-
mer have probably noticed
two things: turtle nest mark-
ings, and machinery and pipes
from a beach renourishment
"I noticed a boat stationed
offshore for my entire trip and
was eventually told it was a
dredging boat that was pump-
ing sand onto the beach," said
Eric Nowlin, 11, visiting Amelia
Island from Atlanta.
According to Dr. James
Perran Ross, associate scien-
tist at the Department of
Wildlife Ecology and
Conservation at the University
of Florida, loggerheads are the
most abundant species of tur-
tles known to nest along the
East Coast.
They can be found mainly
in Florida, from Merritt Island
to Palm Beach, "Beaches have
to have the correct character-
istics for nesting," Ross said.
The type and depth of the
sand, the gas and oxygen move-
ment between the particles, the
water table (groundwater that
has settled below the soil or

sand) and the temperature of
the incubation are all factors in
the nesting process.
Beach renourishment is
done in order to restore the
sand that has been washed
away by the constant churn of
the waves in the ocean.
The renourishment adds
sand so the beaches here
remain beautiful and wide,
which attracts tourists and
beachgoers. However, the wide
beaches make nesting more dif-
ficult for turtles.
The wider the beach, the
longer the walk is for the moth-
er turtle to make her nest and
for the hatchlings to get to the
ocean. This puts them at risk
because they spend more time
out of the water.
"If you mess up the island,
or the particular nesting site,
you risk losing that portion of
your population," Ross said
about factors regarding renour-
Turtles return to the shores
of the same beaches every sea-
son, laying about 100 eggs each
time they nest.
"We were lucky to witness
all of the nests on the beaches
during our visit this summer,"

said Terry Lewis, a tourist vis-
iting from North Carolina.
A natural beach has more
coarse sand particles, which
allow air and gas to move
between them and get to the
eggs so that the baby turtles
can breathe.
The sand pumped from off-
shore is finer and more com-
pact, restricting airflow to the
turtle eggs. This also makes it
more difficult for loggerhead
turtles to dig their nests
because of the hardened sur-
Renourishment also takes
away from variability in tem-
peratures, because the con-
struction rebuilds a beach and
compacts it the same all along
it. The temperature at which
eggs are incubated determines
the gender of sea turtles.
Although not an immediate
threat to the gender ratios of
turtles, it could impact them.if
climate temperatures and sea
levels continue to rise, causing
more beaches to need renour-
These global changes could
harm the loggerhead turtle
species in the future if not
closely watched.

It's time for economic

Went to two city commission meet-
ings last week, a budget work-
shop meeting and a "town hall
meeting," so called, on the strate-
gic plan. The budget meeting was a sobering
reminder that all of us, even governments, are
continuing to be damaged by the Great
Recession. The meeting on the strategic plan
was surreal, a flight of fancy.
The budget meeting began by the city man-
ager presenting a plan that dealt with mergers,
those of departments and employees.
Commissioners nodded as words like efficien-
,cy and effectiveness were thrown around;
good words, solid words. But the efficient and
effective plan wasn't without costs, particularly
the human kind jobs would be lost; there.
would be layoffs.
The number of people losing their jobs was
intolerable, or so it seemed, and the commis-
sion began talking about something that no
one wanted to talk about or heai about, some-
thing that naive, or weak-minded or pandering
politicians sign pledges swearing to avoid a
tax increase.
The commission agreed to approve a tenta-
tive tax increase Commissioner Eric
Childers said that a proposed increase of 11.5
percent was too much, would send the wrong
message; I guess a 9 percent increase would
send the right message.
The Great Recession was finally taking, its
toll on city government no mqre non-recur-
ring revenues to balance the budget with, no
political will to dip further into reserves.
Tough times, painful times. The commis-
sion needed a break from hard truths and real-
ity ah, enter the surreal world of the town
hall meeting to discuss the strategic plan, a.
"lovefest," as one commissioner called it, a
warm, gooey moment shared by commissi6n-
ers and local interest groups and individuals; a
flight of pure fancy.
Most everyone knows by now that the city


Ron Sapp

commission.is on the verge
of approving its strategic
plan, a financing mechanism,
really, for projects already
approved or discussed, most
since 2008 $3 million for
Front Street improvements,
$770,000 for improvements
to the Alachua/Front Street
intersection, $4 million for
purchase, rehabilitation and'
refurbishment of the down-
town post office building,
$1.4 million for waterfront
parks, $614,000 towards a
new library and $51,000 for
Centre Street improvements.

What makes all of this so surreal and fan-
tastic? Well, 1) much of the plan is the respon-
sibility of other governments, 2) there are no
negotiated and approved agreements between
the city and those other governments as to
who would be responsible for the projects and
who would fund them and 3) there's no money
to pay for any of it
The downtown post office is a federal
building. The post office, a government corpo-
ration, has allowed the building to deteriorate
to the point it's going to take roughly $4 mil-
lion just to bring it up to code. That expendi-
ture should be the federal government's, not.
the taxpayers of Fernandina Beach. Bottom
line: there is no negotiated agreement yet, so
the city's obligation is un-determined.
*' Few people doubt the need for a
larger, 21st century library, one that's located
in the downtown. But it is, after all, a county'
library system, even though the city owns
and maintains the building and contributes
$54,000.annually to the county for library
There is no negotiated agreement between
the city and the county regarding a new


library where it will be, who's going to fund
it, what it's going to be like, etc.
Front Street improvements were
designed to facilitate private development from
Centre Street northward to Alachua Street.
The Great Recession has diminished the
urgency for those improvements; there are no
waterfront developers banging on the city's
door demanding those improvements.
The plan, if approved intact, would cost
roughly $10 million, but there are no property
tax dollars to pay for it remember, the tax
increase is just to save jobs. So theplan is to
increase the electric franchise fee or utility tax,
either way electric bills will go up to pay for
the plan. Hmm, higher taxes'and. higher elec-
tric bills, not things weary consumers and tax-
payers want to hear.
What about this concerning the budget dis-
continue the contract with the lobbyist, no
salary increases and search the budget for
other efficiencies no jobs lost and no tax
And this for the strategic plan: 1) complete
the improvements on the public side of the
waterfront, Centre Street southward finish
the green space and boardwalk; build an .
amphitheatre. Cost $300,000.2) Acquire the
post office for $1,I know, I hate it, too, but the.
commission is determined to do this, rehabili-
tate the exterior and work with local organiza-
tions regarding how to. utilize the interior.
Cost $400,000. 3) Work with the county on a
plan to expand the Fernandina library at its
current location. Responsibility and costs to be
Get a line of credit*for '700,000 not $10
million and complete the projects, incremen-
tally, out of annual city revenues.
No property tax increase and no increase in
electric bills. No immediate expenditures on
the strategic plan, true, but economic realities
have to be considered.

the answers figured out. One real old-
timer had been here since 2005. As
they kept repeating, "We need to get
started and spend, spend, spend." I
kept hearing.a song in the background.
It was the same old refrain the Freddie
Mac-Fannie Mae duo have been
singing for years, much to a few million
homeowners' demise. Everyone has
to keep up with the Joneses. If they
have a four-bedroom, three-bath house,
then I have to have one too when a
two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom
would do fine..
The politicians in Washington are
beginning to realize that "pay as you
go" might not be such a bad idea.
Don't spend money you don't have.
I'm getting too old to learn to speak
The modern-day politician needs
to talk to a lot of people in their eight-
ies who' remember the 1930's
Depression vividly. The biggest deci-
sion then was whether to build a
one-holer or a two-holer and equip it
with either a Sears Roebuck or'a
Montgomery Ward catalog. The two-
holer was harder to turn over on
Halloween night each year. How soon
we forget.
Fernandina is a unique community
and should remain so. That is what
has made it so attractive to so many
people. It should not be cloned to look
like every other beach town.
Every time I hear the old post office
mentioned I think of the Ancient
Mariner and the Albatross.
The commission should pick the
most favored project and move for-
ward on it when they have solid finan-
cial means. This was the idea the third
group was proposing. Don't spend
money you don't have, and don't add
extra taxes to the old retirees for the
rest of their lives.

Beach construction
In order to protect and support the
coast on the south end of Amelia
Island, a beach renourishment project
is currently under way. Led by the
South Amelia Island Shore Stabilization
Association, the Nassau County Board
of County Commissioners and the
Florida Park Service, the enhancement
effort includes pumping approximate-
ly 2 million cubic yards of sand onto the
beach to protect and stabilize the
dunes, widen the shoreline and
enhance shorebird and nesting sea tur-
tie habitats ("A visitor's lament," July
27). .
The South Amelia Island Shore
Stabilization Project, originally con-
'structed in 1994 and renourished most
recently in 2002, is presently under-
going its second maintenance renour-
ishment. Begun in mid-May, the
renourishment is expected to be com-
plete by the end of August and is
expected to provide increased storm
protection and recreational beach
space for a period of eight to nine years.
The present renourishment is being
constructed in the spring/early sum-
mer in order to take advantage of the
calm weather during this period.
Construction in the winter months
would be significantly adversely affect-
ed by the winter.wave climate, espe-
cially in the vicinity of the sand borrow
site, which. lies on the edge of the
Nassau Sound ebb shoal complex. In
addition to potentially dangerous con-
ditions for the dredge crew and equip-
ment, dredging operations during win-
ter months would result in dramatically
extended construction times and sig-
nificantly increased costs, costs which
are being borne by the local taxing
district with no assistance from the
state or federal governments.
A similar beach renourishment proj-
ect in Jacksonville Beach is also being
done in the safety window of the sum-
mer season as well as the Fernandina
Beach project completed in 2008.
The contractor is working diligent-
ly to move as fast as possible to main-
tain a tight filling operation, going to
extraordinary lengths to open the
beach up behind them as quickly and
safely as possible.
We apologize for any inconven-
iences the project may have caused
but we are confident that the short-

term construction will provide long-
term protection for the beaches of
south Amelia Island and the Amelia
Island State Park.

There is always lots to complain
about, but it is always nice to "catch
someone doing something right."
This is a letter I have been meaning
to write for a while. I would like to pub-
licly commend Commissioner Eric.
Childers for proactively sending out
the-commission agendas and his posi-
tions on each item.
I have responded with questions or
comments, and to Commissioner
Childers' credit, he always responds
back. The vast majority of times I have
agreed with his positions, but occa-
sionally we are on different sides of
an issue. And here's the thing, my com-
munications with him demonstrated
that we can disagree without being dis-
I also understand that other com-
missioners, I believe Mayor Susan
Steger and Commissioner Arlene
Filkoff, have established times when
the citizens can meet with them to dis-
cuss concerns and issues. Although
those times have not always fit my
schedule, it is nice to know that avenue
of communication was available.
Kudos to any and all public offi-
cials, some of whom I may not be
aware of, who go that extra distance to
communicate with and respectfully
consider the input of the citizen tax-
payers, of our wonderful city. Some
might say that is the way it should be.
Perhaps so, but let's still give credit
where credit is due!

oster-urley reduces the
resources for the animals that
need it to survive.
So I keep a lookout for all
sources of surface freshwater
on Amelia Island. I thought I
had about pinpointed all the
various retention ponds,'bur-
row pits and remaining
stretches of Egans Creek as it
flows north to the
Cumberland Sound. Golf
courses have some of these
ponds, but most are land-
scaped with grass right down
to the edge with large expans-
es of greenways for thirsty
wildlife to dare cross under
cover of darkness to get a
drink. Other retention ponds
are located in central areas of
housing developments, often
circled by fenced houses that

also limit wildlife access.
The retention pond in my
own backyard is a bit of a
hybrid, with the usual contin-
gent of homes with lawns on
one side of it, but also with a
wooded and shrul-filled lot
that my husband and I own on
one bank, left in its natural
state. Up until recently I
thought that outside of Fort
Clinch State Park, our pond
was the closest to natural on
the island.
But then I got an email
from Will Farrell that
changed all that. He wanted to
know what the large birds
were that were roosting in tall
trees beside his acre-sized
pond on the south end of the
island. He had never seen
these birds in previous years
and was curious if the low
pond levels brought them in
to feed.
Well, that e-mail got me
curious too. What large birds?
Apparently they weren't great
blue herons or white egrets -
surely a longtime pond owner
would know these birds. And
besides, what pond? I thought
I knew all the ponds on the
island, and his was new to me.
So it didn't take me long to
follow up with Will and make
arrangements to visit his
pond, tucked away in an older
development mid-island. Will
built his home with a back-
yard facing this acre-sized
pond and, like us, he has
maintained the area around it
in as much of a natural state
as possible.
Within moments of meet-
ing Will and walking to the
pond's edge we were joined
by his next door neighbor,
Audrey. Together we watched
the turtles, bass and brim

swimming towards the small
dock, hoping for a handout.
Will has kept this pond well
stocked with fish, and well
fed, so there is always some-
thing in the water to look at.
But it was the birds we
came for, and where were
they? At first no birds were
visible to me, they were so
camouflaged in the treetops,
but soon our presence ruffled
them; a handful flew from the
group to some other trees on
a more distant bank. Sure
enough, they weren't great
blue herons, great egrets or

any of the usual suspects.
They were yellow-crowned
night herons, a whole group
of maybe three dozen individ-
uals in various stages of
breeding and non-breeding
plumage! These birds are a
"Species of Special Concern"
in Florida and a treat to
behold. As in this case, most
yellow-crowned night herons
roost near ponds and
swamps, in wooded areas, a
scarce commodity on our

herons have a rookery by a

borrow pond behind Willow
Pond, deep in the interior of
Fort Clinch State Park, but
Will's pond hosts the only yel-
low-crowned night herons
that I know of that are roost-
ing on our island. And the
black-crowned night herons
at Fort Clinch are difficult to
see. Unless you are fully coal-
ed with bug spray and willing
to trek overland off the paths
through brushy snake habi-
tat, you'll have to take my
word for their existence.
But there in Will's back-
yard, undisturbed by human

neighbors that respect the
birds and the trees they roost
in, the yellow-crowned night
herons are easy viewing. This
just goes to prove that you
can live.somewhere for more
than a decade, a 13-mile-long
island at that and there's
still something new to find
out about. Thanks, Will, for
filling out my knowledge on
this one!

,ecrctari of the Interior Ken
Salazar joined U.S. Sen. Bill
Nelson and U.S. Rep. John Mica
to kick off the inaugural meeting
of the St. Augustine 450th
Commemoration Commission
last month. The commission is
charged with planning and devel-
oping a celebration in 2015 to
honor the "450th anniversary of
the founding of the oldest con-
tinuously occupied European-
established city in the continen-
tal United States."
"The story of St. Augustine is
an integral part of the story of
America, and the 450th anniver-
sary of the city's founding is an
opportunity to commemorate
the diversity of our past and the

long journey to become the
nation we are today," Salazar
said. "The Department of the
Interior will work closely with
the commission to ensure an
appropriate commemoration that
celebrates the city and honors
its history."
Congress established the
commission as part of the
Omnibus Appropriations Act of
2009 and Salazar announced the
members of the commission in
Spanish explorer Pedro

various times the flags of Spain,

have flown over the city. Union
forces occupied the city in 1862.

This was written by Angela
Daughtry and Garrett Pelican of
the News-Leader from oral and
written reports by the Nassau
County Sheriffs Office and the
city ofFernandina Beach Police
Department and other agencies.
Arrest indicates suspicion of a
crime, not guilt.
The Nassau Humane
Society was burglarized July
27, according to a Fernandina
Beach Police report. While on
patrol, a city officer noticed evi-
dence of the break-in after see-
ing the front door ajar around
5 a.m.
Officers found a front win-
dow broken and papers strewn
about and cabinets open.
Representatives of the shel-
ter confirmed that equipment
missing from the office at 671
Airport Road included a flat
screen computer monitor and
a keyboard, the report said.
Missing from a shed behind
the shelter was a tractor lawn'-
mower and other lawn care
tools, such as weed cutters.
The representatives told
police the shelter closed for
the day about 5:30 p.m. July 26.
The nonprofit shelter, which
relies heavily on the public to
provide basic necessities to the
homeless animals residing
there, has no means of replac-
ing the costly equipment, said
President John Landregan on
Monday. The lawn equipment
was used to maintain the
agency's dog park, he said.
Landregan appealed to the
public for support in replacing
the stolen equipment.
"The equipment stolen was
donated," he said. "As a non-
profit, we depend on the public.
We just don't have the funds
to purchase a new tractor and
mower. Hopefully, people will
help us out. That equipment is
necessary for the upkeep of
the dog park we have here."
According to a report by
the Nassau County Sheriff's
Office, a local man discovered
he had received a counterfeit
bill with change from Aden's
Minit Market in Hilliard, when
he tried to use the bill later.
On July 29 the man report-
ed to deputies that when he
tried to use the bill.at the
Hilliard Discount Beverage
Store, the bill was found to be
a counterfeit.
Underage sales
Three local retailers were
caught last week by the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office selling
alcohol or tobacco to underage
buyers, according to reports.
The sheriffs office sent con-
fidential underage informants

into the Sunoco store at 463943
SR 200 and Safari Food store at
463192 SR 200, both in Yulee,
where cashiers sold 23.5-ounce
Four Loko alcohol drinks con-
taining 12 percent alcohol to
the informant. A confidential
underage informant was also
sent into the Callahan Food
Discount store at 542217 US 1
in Callahan and bought acan of
Grizzly Long Cut Straight
tobacco from the cashier.
The cashiers were issued
criminal summons and
released pending a court date.
Deputies arrested a
Fernandina Beach man who
appeared visibly intoxicated at
the Walmart Supercenter in
Yulee late Friday night, accord-
ing to a Nassau County
Sheriff's Office report.
A witness told deputies the
man had been running around
the parking lot with his head
down, ramming it into shop-
ping carts, and yelling and curs-
ing at shoppers walking
through the lot.
Deputies reported the 22-
year-old man had a strong odor
of alcohol on his breath and
became belligerent when con-
The man's shorts fell to the
ground during the incident and
when deputies asked him to
pull them up, he refused.
He was charged with disor-
derly intoxication in a public
place and causing a distur-
bance, both misdemeanors.
Secret shopper
According to a police
report, a Fernandina Beach
man was defrauded by a scam
posing as a job offer.
The man accepted an offer
online to become a secret shop-
per for a company called
Russell Boy Consulting Inc.,
the report stated. Between July
1 and July 5 he received his
first assignments from the com-
pany, which also included two
U.S. Postal Service checks for
$990 each.
The assignments instruct-
ed the man to cash the checks
at his bank to keep $200 and
mail the remaining money to
another mystery shopper listed
on the letter.
After following the instruc-
tions, the man received notice
from his bnik on July 12'that
the checks were counterfeit
and he had been defrauded.

Cops 'at

great risk'

Florida News Connection
enforcement officers in the state
of Florida were shot and killed
during the first six months of
this year, totaling 10 officers
killed in the line of duty.
It's a record number, reflect-
ing growing violence against
mostly city cops and county
sheriff's deputies. Ironically, it
comes at a time when the state
is enjoying historically low
crime rates.
Craig Floyd, chair of the
National Law Enforcement
Officer's Memorial Fund,
Washington, D.C., says a big
part of the problem is funding.
"We're slashing the budgets
for law enforcement. We are giv-
ing them less training, less
equipment, and there are fewer
officers rifle.on the street to
keep our communities and our
protectors safe."
The Florida National Rifle
Association (NRA) claims the
death toll is not the fault of
firearms. The NRA says over
1.9 million licenses to carry con-
cealed weapon have been issued
in the state, and only 168 have
been revoked for misuse.
Floyd says officers need to
maintain vigilance and aware-
ness any time they interact with
the public, yet they cannot treat

everyone like a possible killer,
requiring a careful balance of
courtesy and caution.
"Law enforcement officers
have to clean up the mess; they
have to confront ] -. i-(! i ini individuals who have no respect
for government, for authority,
for human life. Unfortunately,
our officers are at great risk."

City appeals

McGill ruling

The city is appealing the final
judgment in its longstanding
lawsuit against McGill Aviation.
The final judgment, filed July
7 in the Fourth Judicial Circuit
Court, ordered the city to pay
$1.2 million in attorney fees and
other costs to McGill, the city's
fixed-based operator at its muni-
cipal airport. Attorney fees for
McGill amounted to $937,558.
City Attorney Tammi Bach
said the appeal will not intro-
duce any new evidence or wit-
nesses, but rather will be based
on the case's record. Both par-
ties must submit briefs within 70
days and the case would most
likely take up to 150 days to be
resolved, Bach said.
But according to McGill's
attorney Jim Middleton, the
appeal could take up to a year,
during which the city will be
paying 6 percent interest on the
$1.2 million judgment, which
.he noted could add up to more

than $70,000 over a year's time.
He noted the last time the
city appealed a judgment in the
McGill case, it took eight
months to come before a judge,
and the city lost the appeal. He
added that, on average, 80 per-
cent of appellate cases are lost.
According to Middleton,
"every action the city has pur-
sued, the city has lost" in this
case, which began in 2004.
The city is also required to
pay a $300,000 rent credit to
McGill as well as its own legal
fees, Middleton said. The city
was also ordered to pay
$400,000 in an arbitrator's judg-
ment last February.
The lawsuit commenced in
2004 because the city com-
plained that McGill Aviation was
taking over more land than its
lease stated. McGill countered
the city was violating FAA rules
and blocking the company from
building T-hangars. The city
tried to evict McGill in October
2004, But Judge Brian Davis
stopped the eviction.,

Association will also sanction the event and

sixth places. The 2010 winner, Geoffrey Stam
of "Team Turn 3," has 47.44 pounds and 2009
winner Bob Johnson of "Team Traveler" has
weighed in just one kingfish at 43.25 pounds
and is in sixth place.
In the SKAjuinior division, anglers in the
top four places are all within a few pounds of
the lead. Junior angler Cage Carter on the
"Gotcha" is presently leading with 54.84
The ladies division is also up for grabs with
Cindy Crawford of "Team Crawfish" just five
pounds behind "Badsport" member Meghan
Hinson's 80.01 pounds and first-place spot.
"Team Crawfish" may also capture senior
angler honors with senior angler Al Morris
also just five pounds from leading senior
angler Nick Hinson of the "Badsport."
With the all-new rodeo competitive fishing
format, 10 species of gamefish will be show-
cased at the Fernandina Harbor weigh-in site
to add to the excitement as competitive
Southern Kingfish Association kingfish teams
compete for final 2011 points.
The best news comes from the recent
catches of kingfish from close-in waters, such
as Nassau Sound and nearshore fish havens.
Kingfish weighing in the 20- to 50-pound class
have been caught recently along the beaches
and inlets of Northeast Florida, where small
boats are also competitive. Keep in mind the
tournament dates were switched from the first
of June to the first of August in order to make
sure fishing teams would enjoy the best fish-
ing action possible. Looking back at early
June, fishing for a wide variety of saltwater

gamefish was extremely slow due to pesky
Fishing has also picked up in the backwa-
ter for a variety of game fish that will be target-
ed during the coming weekend's Fernandina
Beach Fishing Rodeo. Don Whitman claims he
and fishing partner Bruce Comrie are on a
huge school of tournament-winning redfish.
Certainly the tides are ideal Saturday for
backwater fishing with a low tide arriving at
the mouth of the Amelia River at 8:26 a.m.
While it is quite possible that after landing
tournament grade backwater species, tourna-
ment boats could fish the clear, incoming tides
for kingfish, cobia, grouper and amberjack.
Bay boats are ideal for this style of backcoun-
try and nearshore competitive fishing.
The popular event gets under way Friday at
5 p.m. with registration and mandatory cap-
tain's meeting at the Fernandina Harbor
Marina. Plan on enjoying "Sounds on Centre"
as well.
Weigh-in opens Saturday at 2 p.m. and ends
at 5 p.m. There will be live entertainment, a
public barbecue, face painting and a boat show
while watching a variety of gamefish hit the
tournament scales.
Fishermen are reminded that "Personal
'Locator Beacons" are only required if you plan
on entering the SKA portion of the kingfish
tournament. Also plan to purchase raffle tick-
ets that could win a two-night, three-day stay
at Omni Amelia Island Plantation, Air Tran
tickets for two anywhere in the United States
and much more.

New Fellows
Recently, Fernandina Beach Rotary Club President Shannon Brown awarded Paul
Harris Fellowships to two members for their financial contributions to the Rotary
Foundation: Rick Keffer and State Rep. Janet Adkins, above from left. After the presen-
tation, Adkins went on to give club members an update on Florida's 113th legislative
session, which concluded in May. Adkins noted that legislators worked on balancing
the budget, as required by the state's constitution, without raising taxes. She also out-
lined other issues tackled during the session, including the fight not to privatize
Northeast Florida State Hospital, ongoing Medicaid reform and several issues related
to K-12 education. She closed by discussing her work on the Redistricting and
Reapportionment Committee. The Fernandina Beach Rotary Club meets each
Wednesday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Florida House Inn on South Third Street.

Farmers Market
Winter Park Honey is
introducing a new, all season,
all U.S. allergy honey. The
Allergy Bee Gone honey con-
tains honey from all over the
U.S. with bits of pollen from
all of the plants that bother
allergy sufferers all year
along. It's Winter Park
Honey's attempt to make it
simple. Because many cus-
tomers come to the market
from all over the U.S., taking
a tablespoon of honey a day
all year long will work for
nearly everyone, no matter
what part of the country
you're in.
Winter Park Honey is a
small, family owned company
dedicated to helping bees
make the finest honey avail-
able. The award-winning
honey from its apiary is pro-
duced, unheated and totally
unprocessed. It's like eating
honey right out of the comb!
With hives located through-
out Orlando, Winter Garden
and Central Florida, the bees
are never treated with pesti-
cides or given antibiotics. A
large selection of gourmet
varietal honey as well as
Tupelo, Sourwood,
Buckwheat, Palmetto,
Orange Blossom, Blackberry,
Blueberry, Avocado, Key
Lime, Gallberry, Lavender,
Orange Cinnamon and the
local wildflower honey are
also available at the market.
Also at the market on
Saturday will be Gabriela's
Tamales and Olive My Pickle.

Rolo, the eight-week-old
Chocolate Lab pup, takes a
swim ii the cool pond at

water. Rolo knows how to stay
cool in these hot, dog days of'
summer. To inquire about
adopting Rolo or any of his
RAIN friends, please contact

Follow Callahan's tracks
The Amelia Island Museum of History invites you to its
next 3rd Friday on 3rd Street on Aug. 19 at 6 p.m. featuring
John Hendricks from the West Nassau Historical Society.
Travel back to the mid 1880s during the heyday of the iron
horse as you follow the tracks of Daniel Callahan, the little
known yet charismatic Irish American railroad contractor-
and builder. They journey begins in the late 1840s when
Callahan was a young teen arriving with the first wave of
Irish immigrants escaping the devastating potato famine.
Hear the highlights of his prolific 45-year career, including the
untimely death of his partner in Cincinnati, his heroism in
, Savannah, his near fatal injury in Atlanta and the tragic death
of his close friend in New York. Special focus will be on
Callahan's stint in Nassau County as he arrives in Fernandina
to begin construction of Florida's first cross peninsular rail-
road. Yet what begins in 1855 as a momentous occasion full
of hope ends with a disheartened Callahan and company
leaving behind an unfinished railroad four years later.

at 6 p.m. and Early Bird
Games start at 6:10 p.m., with
regular play at 6:30 p.m.
