Survey defines neighborhoods


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
A recent architectural survey of
the city found there are no other neigh-
borhoods that would qualify as his-
toric districts, according to a presen-
tation by City Planner Adrienne Dessy
at an Oct. 18 commission meeting.
The stirvey did identify six districts,
or Neighborhood Planning Areas, that
could received more planning atten-
tion. They are: North of the Downtown
Historic District; South of the
Downtown Historic District; the
Southside neighborhood; North and
South of Atlantic Avenue and East of
14th Street; the Beach North of
Atlantic Avenue; and the Beach South '
of Atlantic Avenue.
The survey by Janus Research of


Tampa covered all neighborhoods
within the city that are outside the cur-
rent historic districts.
The survey was meant to identify
development patterns, neighborhood
history and architectural/landscape
elements that create each neighbor-
hood's character. It created
Neighborhood Planning Areas that
are defined by geographic boundaries
that delineate each neighborhood.
* The survey will be used to help the
city planning department work with
community members to create plan-
ning policies that will protect certain
neighborhoods and identify areas that
need future surveys, according to
Dessy.
Data generated by the survey also
includes GIS (geographic information
systems) mapping of Neighborhood


Planning Areas and the potential of
creating conservation districts.
Fieldwork for the survey, which
was paid for-by a $30,000 grant from
the Florida Division of Historical
Resources, began in October 2010 and
a survey draft was submitted to the city
and state last February. A final draft,
with state comments incorporated,
was submitted in June.
The only neighborhood where no
additional surveying was recom-
mended was "North of the Downtown
Historic District." The beach neigh-
borhoods north and south of Atlantic
Avenue were identified as "high pri-
ority survey areas."
SThe two beach neighborhoods
were singled out for high priority

Art works in public spaces?


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
City commissioners last week dis-
cussed the possibility of creating a
public art ordinance for Fernandina
Beach, for works of art placed in pub-
lic spaces.
Recent examples of public art are
the numerous shrimp statues placed
around the city on both public and pri-
vate property. That project, sponsored
by Micah's Place Domestic Violence
Center, received temporary approval
by the city, according to City Planner
Kelly Gibson.
Gibson told commissioners at their
Oct. 18 meeting that the issue of pub-
lic art has come up several times over


'It's done in many cities.
especially in vibrant
downtown like ours.'
TAMMI BACH
CITYATTORNEY

the past year in the Community
Development Department, from local
artists who want to donate art proj-
ects to the city. Gibson said the depart-
ment saw a need for some kind of ordi-
nance but did not want to go forward
without direction from the city com-
mission.
Gibson said a public art ordinance


would address temporary or perria-
nent art in parks, cemeteries and other
areas of the city. For the time being,
public art projects, such as the shrimp
statues, have been going before the
Historic District Council.
"What most cities do is appoint a
committee to rule on what they want
to see,"-City Attorney Tammi Bach
said. "It's done in many cities, espe-
cially in vibrant downtown like ours.
Bach said art projects could be
approved by a historic district council,
an arts council or a joint council, but
she added that it would be best to
bring arts projects before the city's
HDC.

Short-term rental law amended


ANGEIA DAUGI ITRY
News Leader

City commissioners voted 4-
1 on Oct. 18 to amend resort
rental dwelling provisions in the
city's code of ordinances.
Commissioner Eric Childers,
who has been in favor of
expanding resort rentals within
the city, voted against.
A resort rental dwelling per-
mit allows for vacation rentals of
less than four weeks. Only one
high-density residential district
in the city, near the beach,
allows for these types of rentals.
However, some homes in medi-
um- and low-density neighbor-
hoods have resort-rental per-
mits that were "grandfathered
in" before resort-rental ordi-
nances were passed in 2000.
The new amendments
approved last week include
changes in the frequency of
inspection of structures, par-
ticipation in garbage services,
display and filing of permits,
advertising of units, liability of
owners and renters and citation
amounts.
Resident Dorothea Stillwell


said she olbjected to the amllend-
ments because they make the
issue too complicated, and also
questioned why longer-termn
renlals are not subject to such
ordinances.
"You need to regulate it for
everybody," Stillwell said. "I
doll't understand the point of it.
... Don't just concentrate oni
short-term rentals."
Mayor Susan Steger won-
dered aloud why there were no
similar permits for longer-tesrm
rentals, but added, "We don't
want to cause a hassle for peo-
ple renting long-term."
The allowance of short-term
rentals in the city has been a
divisive issue for residents over
the past year. A new state law
preventing cities from putting
restrictions A(n vacation and,
resort rentals was a boon for
those in favor of the rentals, but
the city's current restrictions
on short-termn rentals still apply.
For now, resort rentals are,
legal only within specific resi-
dential districts, and since July
2011 the city cannot make any
new laws regulating the exis-
tence of those rentals.


The ordinance changes
Summary of changes to resort-rental ordinance (based on
a memo by City Attorney Tammi Bach):
Inspections of resort rentals must be done by Ihe city, a
private inspector or state of Florida inspector' every year.
Resort rental dwelling permits must be renewed every
year for a fee of $200.
There is a parking exemption for units meet ing city park-
ing requirements.
There is an exemption for roll-out garbage service if the
unit uses a common trash receptacle.
Resort rental dwelling permits must be displayed open-
ly.
Advertisements for units must include a valid resort
rental dwelling permit number.
Resort rental dwelling permits must be filed with the unit's.
'homeowner's association within a specific period of time.
Liability is now ioint and s--veil al for owners and managers
renting without a permit.
Liability is now joint and s -veral for owners, guests and
managers for noise, garbage and parking violations.
Sl.0() fine for list violation ,of requirements.
8250 fine for first noise violaliun, and $75 for first garbage
or parking violation
Citations, can be distributed at the time of the violation.


City Attorney Tammi Bach
said last August, after a work-
,shop on the amendments, that
if the city commission decided
to expand vacation rental per-


mils, it cbuld not allow them in
just one section of the city, but
would have to allow the rentals'
everywhere.

City ponders motor coach policy


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader

If approved by commission-
ers at a future meeting, the city
may soon have a new policy for
motor coaches entering the
downtown area.
City Planner Adrienne
Dessy brought up the issue of
the large tour buses bringing
visitors into Fernandina Beach
at an Oct. 18 commission meet-
ing because of concerns raised
by residents of the historic dis-
trict.
According to Dessy, those
residents are concerned about
the height of the buses affecting
the tree canopy and cars and

Dessy disagreed, however,
saying that there is a big dif-
ference between making deci-
sions on art and what the HDC

noted that any ordinance written
would have to address public
art installations all over the city,
not just in the downtown.
Commissioner Eric Childers
said he wanted to be sure the
city could have an art ordinance
without a lot of fees and "paper-
work shuffling."

Dessy wrote in a memo that,
after a meeting with the Historic
District Council,'city staff rec-
ommended the creation of poli-
cies and procedures for motor
coachesvisiting the Fernandina
Beach, and that those policies
should be addressed separately
from trolleys.
Dessy at the Oct..18 meeting
said the idea was not to elimi-
nate motor coaches, but to pro-
vide them a designated route
with temporary loading and
unloading zones and possibly
maps and signage for the driv-
ers. The city could also provide
a more formalized process for

issues as permit fees, license
agreements, a public art fund,

teria policies, installation, main-

Public art projects are some-
times controversial art being
in the eye of the beholder. In
2006, the city made late gallery
owner Sid Sax remove a poster

Botero of a plump, bare-bot-
tomed woman standing

motor coach drivers coming
into Fernandina, she sAid.
i "Cooperation between cities
and tourist groups is a big com-
ponent," Dessy said. Maps of
bus routes 'could be provided
on tourism Websites and the city
could also partner with tourist
groups, she said. Dessy also
noted the city has an agreement
with the downtown trolley oper-
ator but not with motor coach
operators.
Commissioner Eric Childers
said he was in favor of some
sort of policy or signage for
motor coaches because opera-
tors can "break off the highway *
and have no idea where to park
the bus." He added that on the


Third Street store.
Sax refused on the grounds
it was "art" and said his rights
were being violated since it was
his painting and his store.
But Brett Whitaker of
Robison Jewelry Co. said he
fotnd'it offensive, according to
reports at the time. "We pro-
mote modesty in our family and

SURVEY
Continued from 1A
because of the "high level of
alterations and new construc-
tion," according to a memo by
Janus Research. The new sur-
vcy of I he area "should include
ani intensive review of local
newspaper archives, materi-
als at the Amelia Island
Museum of History and an
oral history project."
The larger survey, Dessy
said, looked at the neighbor-
hoods on a.big-picture level,
but additional surveys mean
going house by house to get a
more detailed concept of
neighborhoods.
Neighborhood character
elements used in the survey
included land use; height of
.structures; setbacks; density;
building materials; garages
and porches; fences and walls;
scale; street patterns; archi-
tectural styles; spatial rela-
tionships; lot site; elevation
features; roof lines; trees and
shrubbery and other ele-
ments.
Architectural styles found
by the survey included frame
vernacular, masonry vernac-
ular, Cape Cod revival, mini-
imal traditional, modern ver-
nacular and ranch.
Dessy explained at the
meeting that the survey could
result in conservation districts
in certain neighborhoods. A
conservation district is not the
same as a historic district and
does not create anything new
in a neighborhood, but rather
reflects a neighborhood's
interests, she said.
Conservation districts will


also use feedback front resi-
dents of the neighborhood and
are "more accomnmodlaling to
what the neighborhood was
meant to be."
It does not include more
regulations for homeowners,
nor is it prohibitive to devel-
opment, according to I)cssy.
However, Commissioner Eric
Childers has expressed con-
cern that the new districts
could be used to generate reg-
ulations that would limit the
rights of private property own-
ers.
Dessy also said conserva-
tion districts would result in
less need for homeowners to
get variances for building proj-
ects because "its intent is to
r9ake zoning better fit neigh-
borhoods as they are."
SThesurvey will be added in
updates to the Land
Development Code, Dessy
said, and further surveys will
work with the community so
the planning department can
work on strategies to protect
those neighborhoods.
The survey did not find
potential historic districts in
the neighborhoods because of
the "lack of cohesive historic
development" and "alterations
to many of the extant historic
structures throughout the
identified neighborhoods."

A distinction


that's dubious


Fernandina Beach is about
to earn another distinction that
places it within the top 5 )per-
cent of the cities in Florida.
Of all the cities in the stalti,
only 5 percent (or one out of
20) raised its property tax rate
this year and also borrowed a
significant amount of money.
'his is according to the Florida
League of Cities, which tracks
this sort of thing.
This is a dtibious disitinc-
tion. Maybe Fernandina Beach
officials know something that
other city officials don't, or
maybe not. Either way, local
officials are following a tax-and-
spend, borrow-and-spend
approach.
As a justification, some local
commissioners have cited the
internal investment of$8O mil-
lion that the )Omni Amelia
Island Plantation will make into
its property. This is indeed an
investment (new hotel roonms,
a new ballroom, etc.) because
it will provide an anticipated
return by creating additional
revenue streams.
Fernandina Beach conm-
missioners raised the property
tax rate because it will generate
About the same amount of rev-
enue as prior years (as prop-
erty values have fallen). While
families and businesses are cut-
ting back and doing more.with
less, city officials felt entitled to
hold the line.
In addition, new projects
costing more than $5 millionhin
borrowed money will produce'
virtually no tax revenues (these
are a new library, a new water-
front park, opening Alachua
Street and improving the cross-
ings'at Front Street).
This is a major difference
between what the Omni is
doing and what city officials
are planning. And, by the way,
the city is borrowing its money
through taxes and levies on
the public; the (mni is using
private funds.
Mean-=while, city officials
point out that borrowing costs
are low right now, and that they

DEBATE
Continued from IA
was "taking a baby step forward
(to) be ready when the econo-
my picks up.... Cities that invest
in assets are successful cities."
Childers said he supported
Forward Fernandina because
Fernandina Beach is a destina-
tion that is "not on the way to
anywhere" and visitors and off-
island residents need to have a
reason to come downtown.
"Now is the time," he said.
"Interest rates are low." He
added that the city would soon
have a "dedicated revenue
stream" coming in from the
Community Redevelopment
Area and franchise fees com-
ing in from new natural gas
lines that are to be installed.
Elwell said he was "all for
the strategic plan," but against
funding it without a public ref-
erendum. "This again shows
why we need full disclosure,"
he said. "Taxpayers need to
know the source of funding,
and what their participation is...
we need to be sure the taxpay-
er has a saying the process. This
is your city, and you're being
asked to pay for it."
Pelican said she was
"adamantly opposed to
Forward Fernandina" and that
if elected, she would like to
immediately put up an agenda
item "to rescind immediately
any financing toward that proj-
ect."
"There are two ways it's OK
to borrow money," Pelican said:
"When voters approve it, and
when there is an income
stream."
"The last three yeqrs we've
had deficit spending by this
commission," said Corbett.
"Now they want to borrow $2
million on the first phase (of
the strategic plan). ... It's not
the right time for this. There
are no revenues coming in from
this project."
Regarding an Oct. 7 memo
titled "Status of Implementation
Activities for Forward Fernan-
dina" from City Manager
Michael Czymbor to commis- .
sioners, Pelican said "it looks
like they are planning on imple-
menting it... I believe they were
planning to go full steam
ahead."

deal," Steger said. "(Bul) we
don't even know the interest
rate (for a loan) ... I see (the
memo) ais a planning step."
"'Ihey've been working on
this since August," Corbett said.
"It's a done deal and it's been
approved to go through."
Childers conceded that "it
would not be in our best inter-
est politically to push (the
strategic plan) forward." But,
he added, "when it's done you
guys will be glad we did it."
Elwell said Czymbor's
Forward Fernandina memo
was "arrogance at its height."
"They're moving ahead with
it," Elwell added.
Another question asked can-
didates what they thought of a
previous public statement by
Vice Mayor Tim Poynter saying
that it was the government's
job to spend money, that it costs
a certain amount of money to
live in Fernandina Beach and
that if one can't afford to live
here, one should move.
Steger said that she was
sure Poynter regretted saying
those words, and what he said
had been hurtful to her and
other residents. "We do have
to spend money, but that's not
our only job (as commission-
ers)," she said.
Childers said he did not
want to comment on what a
commissioner said, but added
that "the government's job is
to provide security and welfare
for citizens.... I believe when we
generate business, we gener-
ate tax revenues."
Elwell said it was not the
government's role to spend
money, but rather to take care
of its citizens in terms of public
safety, streets, sanitation and
other services. "(Money) can
be spent in a very frugal man-
ner," he said, but revenues and
expenditures need to be close-
ly watched.
Pelican said it was a "highly
inappropriate statement" and
that the government's role is
to protect its citizens.
Corbett said the city needed
to "keep taxes down to where'
everyone can live here."
When asked what the most
desired qualities were to be a
commissioner, Elwell said he
had experience in the financial
sector and wanted to see more
openness and disclosure in city
government.

"Citizens don't have all the
facts, because the facts are not
provided by the people doing
the deals," Elwell said.
Pelican said it shouldn't be
just a select group that has City
Hall's ear, and that the city
should stop spending more
than it is taking in.
Steger said commissioners
first needed to love the city, but
also needed to bring a particu-
lar skill to the table.
Corbett said commissioners
should "listen to people and
hear what they say.... Don't
decide beforehand what you're
going to do."
"You gotta have thick skin,"
Chiklers said. "I was told early
on that you're going to make
one-third of the people mad
with every decision." He also
said experience, openness,
transparency and accountabili-
ty are important.
Pelican said she did not sup-
port paid parking anywhere in
the city because it- would dis-
courage people from coming
here and because it would
result in visitors walking over
the dunes to avoid paying for a
parking place.
Steger said she had been
opposed to paid parking on the
beach from the beginning and
that she did not want to see res-
idents having to get a permit
"for a jog down to the beach."
Corbett said paid parking is
"all about revenue." He noted
when paid-parking does come
to the city, beachgoers will just
go to county beaches and the
city will end up with less rev:
enue.
Childers said the paid park-
ing concept was being driven
by the money the city must
spend to clean the beach and
for beach renourishment.
"We're looking for a way to
have visitors take over that
expense," he said.
Elwell said he was "dead
against it ... it's a terrible thing


questions of the candidates. No

The local chapter 4608 has
conducted city candidate polit-
ical forums since 1998.


to do to tourists.... It will drive
people away."
Regarding resort rentals in
the city, Steger said the short-
term rental issue had gotten
more complicated since the
state passed a law limiting cities
from regulating them.
Corbett said making laws to
enforce short-term rentals
would "hopefully take away the
problems."
Childers said he always sup-
ports "basic property rights"
and that short-term rentals
should be no different from any
other type of rental. He added
resort rentals weren't seen all
over the city before the city
began regulating them in 20(X).
Elwell said he believed prop-
erty owners had the right to
rent their properties, but that
owners are responsible for
renters' behavior and fines
should be adequate to handle
any problems.
Pelican said she was not in
favor of resort rentals the way
they are being handled now


because property owners are
often not around when prob-
lems arise.
Regarding the city's priva-
lizing tHie golf course and mari'
na, Corbett said the city still
pays theI golf management colm-
pany $85,(000 annually, and that
the marina is not making
Inoney eitherr.
"I believe privatization has
been a resounding success,"
said Childers, because the city
is no longer paying for employ-
ee pensions or health care at
the privatized areas. "We're not
bleeding money like we were
before," Childers said.
Elwell said he did not
believe the city should be in
business and that the marina
and golf course "are not really
privatized." He added that the
enterprises are still losing
money and that "taxpayers are
picking up the losses."
"I assumed when the man-
agers (of the maria and golf
course) came in, they would
take responsibility," Pelican
said, "but the taxpayer is still
under full obligation for these
enterprise funds."
"They are still struggling,
but much beller managed now,"
said SLeger. "We're in an incred-
ible recession, but it will not
last forever."
All five candidates'agreed
that consolidating city servic-
es with the county should be
explored.

People say that time flies by
quickly when you are having
fun. 1 think the same holds true
for when you are working hard.
The past six weeks have
been an absolute whirlwind.
lhe Legislature has already
completed two weeks of com-
mittee meetings, with four
weeks of meetings remaining
between now and Dec. 9. Two
weeks ago was one of my
busiest weeks yet. The week
started with a presentation to
the Nassau County Bar
Association on Monday.
Tuesday began with a pres-
entation to the Nassau County
Realtors Association. I congrat-
ulate all of the realtors who had
a closing in the last two months
- 149 closings in all. It was won-
derful to see the smiles and look
of hope in their eyes. I know
the last three years have been
tough.

'God gave


us memories'

About five years ago, we were backing
out of our driveway when our grandson,
Alex, 5 years old at the time, piped up from
the back seat:
"Granddad, isn't this the best birthday
ever?"
"Yes," I said, finally, "I guess it is."
I must admit I hesitated in answering for
two reasons. First, it was 6:30 in the morn-
ing. Second, it wasn't Alex's birthday. It was
mine.
At first blush, it seemed that getting up at
5:45 a.m. and driving to
Dillsboro, N.C., to board-
Thomas the Train, whose

miles an hour, would not
have been rpy idea of "the
best birthday ever." But,
on second-thought, it
could've been.
I was thinking of that
FROM morning as Alex, his
THE grandmother, his mother
and I arrived for a preview
HOME at Legoland in Winter
OFFICE Haven. Alex, now 10, has
... graduated frdm Thomas
the Train. He's a dedicated
PhilHudgins Legos man. And there we
were at 7:30 in the morn-
ing, possibly the first customers pulling
through the gates of Florida's brand-new
Legoland, driving around hundreds of
empty parking spaces, debating which one
was best, as the first of several downpours
pounded our car.
"What time does this place open?" I
asked after finally settling in a parking space
and unwrapping my McDonald's biscuit.
"Nine o'clock," someone said.
"Nine o'clock? So why are we here at
7:30?"
"Because the gates open at 8," was what I
heard.
Actually, the gates opened before 8,
becausee we were there 30 minutes early for
the gates, an hour and a half early for the
activities.
Once we were inside, though, the rains
stopped at least until lunchtime, when they
returned for several encores. But Alex didn't
care. He donned my baseball cap for minor
protection and sloshed around happily over
much of the 150-acre park. He rode roller
coasters. He marveled at Miniland USA, all
made from Legos. He attended driving
school and steered his own mini-car, one
with no top and no windshield wipers. He
watched water skiers dressed as swashbuck-
ling pirates perform stunts on the shores of
Lake Eloise. He fashioned his own race car
from Iegos, He even took time out to eat.
All the while, Alex was building stories,
stacking them up like little Lego buildings
inside his memory bank.
It has been decades since my dad took
my brother and me fishing, but I have no
trouble conjuring up those days. Even fur-
ther back are memories of playing on my
grandparents' farm and riding Papa's mule,
Bill.
My daughters remind me because I
had forgotten that I read C.S. Lewis'
"Narnia" books to them wh4n they were lit-
tle, hoping, I'm sure, they'didrop off to sleep
before I did.
"God gave us memories that we might
have roses in December," author J.M.
Barrie said.
Years from now, I imagine, Alex will
pluck a l.ego rose from our trip to Winter
Haven. But he probably won't remember
that it got rained on.

We need a hometownl


Elections are interesting things, especially
for those passionately involved, and this cur-
rent city election is following perfectly to form:
code enforcement, long asleep, almost invisi-
ble, is stirring just enough to harass "particu-
lar" candidates about their election signs, can-
didates who clearly voted for something swear
they voted against, or that allocated monies
weren't allocated at all, or that Forward
Fernandina really wasn't approved, or that the
commission-approved utility tax isn't really a
tax at all, or, well, you get the picture.
Elections are interesting things.
The issues have been interesting, too.
Everyone seems to be focused on the Forward
Fernandina plan and its $6 million debt. Me
too. As the originator and sponsor of the $6
million Open Space/Greenway bond issue in
2001, I can't understand why that method was
rejected for Forward Fernandina. The advan-
tages of a bond issue are obvious: direct citi-
zen involvement, the commission gets
involved as advocates, people get to vote, legit-
imacy (citizen approval) isn't a question.
By rejecting citizen involvement and voter
approval the problem of legitimacy will never
be overcome. Nor will the commission's rea-
son for circumventing the citizens "They'll
just vote it down; they'll just say no."
So, the proverbial elephant in the voting
booth is Forward Fernandina, but let's not for-
get some other key issues:
Leadership and restoring public confi-
dence in the commission and its dscision-mak-
ing. Can the incumbents rally the troops? Can
they reverse field, utter mea culpas and move
the city forward. Or are the challengers better
suited for that task.
Is the current charter officer leadership
team the city manager, city attorney and city


DEBATE
AND


clerk capable of supporting
and facilitating forward move-
ment, or if any member of
that team is a weak link in the
chain of competence will the
incumbents have the guts to
make a change? What about
the challengers?
Is anyone really serious
about the county taking over
city government, or parts of
it?


TACKLE When approached, either
formally or informally by any
member of county govern-
Ron Sapp ment, the city commission
should scream from the tops
of their collective lungs, "Seriously, are you
kidding!?!?!" If the county commission wants
to really help the taxpayers of Fernandina
Beach their constituents, by the way, I have a
few suggestions: 1) Stop asking the city com-
mission to help pay for county projects. 2) Pay
your share of the beach renourishment proj-
ect. 3) Reimburse the city when city law
enforcement answers routine calls in the
island's unincorporated area. 4) Reimburse the
city when city firefighters and rescue person-
ncl answer callsin the unincorporated area. 5)
Pay your share of island recreation dollars,
now funded 100 percent by city taxpayers.
The only right thing to do, the only reason-
able thing, theonly rational thing, the only
practical thing, the only logical thing, is for the
city to take over public safety for the island
and be reimbursed for that. This is already the
case de facto, it just needs to be formalized.
I'd love to hear the incumbents champi-
oning that cause during this campaign, and I'd
love it if the challengers were just as vocal.


7A



n agenda'

I'd also love to hear these things:
"We will suffer no more the recommen-
dations of city staff about moving theMain
Beach boardwalk westward. We're going to
Protect the dune by building a new boardwalk,
an elevated one, at the existing site. After all, a
boardwalk that's not next to the beach isn't
really a boardwalk, is it." Uh, no.
"We will not cut down trees at the city's
airport and we will not take any action that
would increase airport traffic, or the size of
user aircraft."
"We will not pursue any additional legal
avenues regarding the McGill lawsuit We will
bring an end to this long and sorry affair as
soon as we possibly can."
"We will not tolerate any encroachment
of cotnmercial activity into traditional residen-
tial areas. The current short-term, residential
rental ordinance is a good one, one that was
born out of compromise. We will be committed
to beach residential homeowners and to their
quiet enjoyment of property, as we will to all
residential property owners in all parts of the
city."
"We will once again be a partner with
youth sports leagues in our community."
"We will commit ourselves to a 'home-
town' agenda, we won't try to be like Key
West, or St. Augustine, or Hilton Head, S.C.
We will be Fernandina Beach."
That, in essence, is the kind of candidate
I'm looking for.- committed to hometown,
loyal to the city, committed to environmental
protection, knows the city, knows the people,
is a passionate advocate, unafraid to make
decisions and listens.
All that said, we'll see what happens on
Nov. 8. Please remember to vote.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Stophankeang
The Oct. 21 report on stalled
downtown post office talks gives us
hope that the folly of taking over
responsibility for this money pit can
yet be averted. Commissioner Tim
Poynter's statement that "they never
give buildings away" seems odd
since it would seem a challenge
even to give this white elephant
away. As for the one-sided lease
arrangement being negotiated with
the U.S. Postal Service, we can only
be thankful-that this may indeed be
off the table for good.
Poynter's statement that "we're
not hankering for this building"
gives us hope as well. So let's stop
hankering for it! Let the Feds take
responsibility for their lack of stew-
ardship and .dispose of it in accor-
dance with federal regulations,
which we have in abundance. It is
remotely possible that some solu-
tion could come from the private
sector, which is far more capable
of handling such a project than our
city management
Let's hope that our post-
November city commission will fur-
ther distance themselves from the
federal building "tar baby." Instead
they should push theirs and the city
manager's efforts toward creating a
business-friendly downtown rather
than dubious monuments with neg-
ative economic return to our city.
T. J. Robertson
Fernandina. Beach

Abad idea
I have listened to political can-
didates at local, state and national
levels use the term "in these eco-
nomic times," or words to that
effect, to justify action or inaction.
Here in Fernandina we see politi-
cians on both sides of Forward
Fernandina use similar terms. But
let me point out: A bad idea is a bad
idea, no matter the state of the econ-
omy.
The city's "plan" for the old post
office building is a bad idea. The
preservation of that building is nei-
ther essential to the sustainability of
Fernandina Beach, nor is it neces-
sary for growth of our community.
To me, the city has no business
assuming the liability, exposure and
future expense of a building that
was not designed and engineered tb
last indefinitely. Our city manager
Mike Cyzmbor, recently asserted
that Forward Fernandina included
only $350,000 for the post office.
Who is he trying to kid? That
money will barely cover the imme-
diate stabilization expense and will
not cover the long-term dollars nec-
essary for upgrading, not to men-
tion the future maintenance costs.
My brother, a retired restoration
architect in Washington, D.C., uses
the saying "Just because it's old,
doesn't mean it's worth keeping"
when dealing with his customers. I
believe this thought applies to the
post office downtown.
A bad idea is a bad idea!
Further, I see that the Forward
Fernandina plan calls for three
crossovers to the waterfront: Ash,
Center and Alachua. How is this to
be clone? Has there ever been a
train/pedestrian accident in our
sleepy little town? Can you imag-
ine the appearance of three ADA
compliant crossovers so close

together? How will these crossovers
be made ADA compliant? Will they
have long ramps reaching all the
way to Second or Third streets and
out over the water or will they have
six elevators? Who is going to main-
tain these structures after the
expensive construction? How much
money will these add to future city
budgets?
A bad idea is a bad-idea!
There is more that I could say,
but we'll save the rest for another
time.

Good Samaritan
Several weeks ago while shop-
ping at Harris Teeter, and after
checking out, I apparently dropped
my billfold.
'I wasn't even aware of that until
several hours later when a Good
Samaritan dropped it off in my mail-
box.
Whoever picked it up first did
take a credit cai-d and some cash,
which was a small inconvenience,
but I am so thankful to the person
that returned it.
Many thanks.

Spina Bifdaawareness
I know it seems like every time
you turn around somebody is
always trying to make you "aware"
of something else, right? I wish I
could say I regretted being one of
those people, but I don't. I am happy
to pass along this message to you
because it is a message of not only
awareness, but also of hope.
Most people know that October
is breast-cancer awareness month.
SfIt's hard to miss those little pink
r -'bbons everywhere. But did you
knoww that October is also Spina
Bifida awareness month? Spina
Bifida is a birth defect that occurs in
the first weeks of pregnancy -
before a woman even knows she is
pregnant. According to the Spina
Bifida Association, "Spina Bifida is
the most frequentIlly occurring, per-
manently disabling birth deflect....
More children have Spina Bifida
than have muscular dystroplhy, imul-
tiple) sclerosis and cystic fibrosis
combinedd"


'~~,------***
CAGLECARTOON..COM
JEFFPARKER/FLORIDA TODAY


In babies with Spina Bifida, the
vertebrae don't close over the spinal
cord and the cord protrudes
through the bone, muscle tissue
and often even the skin of the back.
Many years ago this birth defect
resulted in death for many babies
and children. Today, thanks to
advances like the modern shunt,
Spina Bifida is no longer fatal.
People with SB live full lives. They
.don't suffer brain damage and they.
can grow up, get married, have jobs
and enjoy children of their own.
There is a lot of misinformation
out there about SB. I want to set
the record straight because maybe
somebody reading this will one day
meet a woman whose baby has
been diagnosed in utero with this
condition. Tell her when you meet
her that her baby will 'be OK and
that there is help and support out
there. Things are not as bad as she
imagines.
How do I know this? Because
six months ago, I went to the doctor
and learned that I was having a lit-
tle girl. I also learned that day that
my little girl had Spina Bifida. So 1
educated myself. But no amount of
reading or education could prepare
me for the wonders my little
princess would bring into my life.
She is 6 weeks old now and she is
perfect. Her surgery to close the
opening in her back went well. She
has movement in her legs, feet
and toes. She will walk. Already she
is a light in my life that will never
dim.
I write this letter to make you
all aware so that you too can spread
the word. Spina Bifida may be a
scary term, but it no longer means
what it used to mean. Some indi-
viduals with SB may be "different-
ly-abled" and use braces, walkers
or wheelchairs to get around, but
they are all valuable, capable mem-
bers of our society.
So if you see somebody sporting
a yellow ribbon in October, you will
know that they either are, or know
somebody who has been, affected
by Spina Bifida.
Also, ladies, remember to take a
multi-vitamin with folic acid. It can
reduce your risk of having a baby
affected by Spina Bifida and other
neural tube defects by about 40-60
percent!

Nursing home wrongs
Gov. Rick Scott's efforts to white-
wash his administration's dracon-
ian cuts to essential Florida servic-
es was on display recently'ih a letter
about "Nursing home rights" (Oct.
12) signed by Jim Crochet from
Scott's Department of Elder Affairs.
The letter implies that the Scott
administration is doing good things
for residents of long-term care facil-
ities.
The truth is, the Scott adminis-
tration, with the help of the Florida
Legislature, has sharply reduced
the amount of care vulnerable
patients in. nursing homes will
receive.
The reduced care affects
private-pay residents as well as
those on Medicaid. Scott and his
Legislature did three things to
accomplish this: They reduced min-
imum staffing standards for direct
care, nursing home funding was cut
6.5 percent and they rejected a $35.7
million federal grant designed to
move Medicaid nursing home res-
idents to assisted living or home
care facilities which cost less than
half as much as care in a nursing
home.
The level of direct care nursing
home patients must receive was
established some years ago when a
scandal was reported that many
nursing home patients were beihg
virtually ignored and not given min-
imum care.
The combined impact is that
long-term care facilities will likely
reduce their staff, resulting in
diminished quality of care for all
residents, private pay and Med-
icare alike. But private pay resii
dents will continue to pay the
same.
The Scott administration
and Legislature is also moving
nursing home Medicaid patients to
managed care programs which
means that decisions on care will
not be made by local doctors,
but by a clerk in Nebraska. The
Florida Medical Association
opposed this.
Rather than helping Florida
nursing home patients, as Mr.
Crochet's letter implies, Scott and
associates have created a very scary
situation.

By the end of this 6-mile jour-

and seek the air conditioning
and water bottle awaiting me
in my vehicle. But that was
not to be. Not just yet.
The fiddler crabs distract-
ed me from my end goal.
There in front of me was an
army of fiddler crabs running
away across the mudflat at
my approach. The males held
their single giant front claw in
front of them, slowing them
down, as they joined the
smaller females in a race for
their life, avoiding the giant
predator me in their
midst.
I wanted to look at them
more closely, but as soon
as I made a move, they ran
away even further, too far,
and too quick for me to even
get good photos, although
there were hundreds of them
there. But then I stopped, and(
waited. -
Be still. That's the ticket!

that no other male came out
to defend. Then, quick as can
be, the lucky male slid down
into the hole, where maybe a
luscious female awaited his
attentions, one can only imag-
ine.
I watched the fiddlers, fas-
cinated, for long minutes,
until the draw of my waiting
air-conditioned vehicle won
out and I headed to the park-
ing lot. When I started walk-
ing again, the crabs dis-
persed, running ahead of me
in their united army, escaping
the giant figure that towered
over them. No time for claw-
jousting now all of the
crabs, males and females
alike skittered off together
in the shared activity of sur-
vival.
If you want to see fiddler
crabs in action, it's easy
enough. Just park your cai' at
the North End Boat Ramp
around low tide any time of
day and walk north along the
beach and mudflat. Right
away you will notice the


holes, and the piles of round-
ed mud balls that represent
fiddler crab feces deposited at
the surface. This substance is
full of nutrients that sustain
the many forms of life that
share the mudflats with the
crabs, feeding at high tide,
when water covers the area
once again.
And right away, if you look
a bit further ahead of you,
you will no doubt see the
army of crabs running away
from you as you herd them.
But that's not the real fun of
watching fiddler crabs. No,
for that, you have to be still.
Stay in one place, don't move
and the action will spread out
around you, close enough to
watch individual crabs vie for
power.
The take home message
from nature for me is to
sometimes "be still." Give it a
try and see what happens!

Crime statistics



down statewide


Crime in Florida declined 2
percent for the first half of the
calendar year over the same
period last year, according to
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement.
Total violent crime (murder;
forcible sex offenses, robbery
and aggravated assault) was
down by 3.2 percent for the first
six months of the year, while
total non-violent crime (burgla-
ry, larceny and motor vehicle
theft) declined 1.8 percent.
FDLE Commissioner Gerald
Bailey joined local, state and
federal criminal justice officials
to announce the 2011 Semi-
'Annual Uniform Crime Report.
"These first six months'results
are a strong indicator of what
we will see for 2011, and the
downward trend of Florida's
crime numbers is a positive
sign," Bailey said. "We're
aggressively working to safe-
guard our streets and commu-
nities."
'The decrease in crime vol-
ume is yet another sign that
Florida is a safe state, and we
are open for business," said'
Gov. Rick Scott.

Domestic violence offenses

The report also contains
information on officers killed
feloniously. Five officers died
from criminal causes during the
first half of the year; two were

Nassau County Sheriffs Office,
the city of Fernandina Beach
Police Department and other
agencies. Arrest indicates sus-
picion 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 Sheriff's
Office anonymously by calling
225-0147 in Yulee and

Knife brandished
A Fernandina Beach man
was arrested Saturday for
aggravated assault after a
domestic dispute turned vio-
lent, according to a deputy's
report.
Intervening in the 1 a.m.
dispute between a woman and
her mother, the man pulled a
knife on the woman's male
roommate, deputies said. IThe
woman called 911 for help, at
which time the man fled the
residence, according to the
report.

he denied his alleged role in
the incident, they said.

46, of 1458 Nottingham Drive,
Fernandina Beach is charged
with aggravated assault.
Out ofgas and luck
The beneficiary of roadside
assistEnce Saturday night got
more help than he wanted
when deputies arrested him
for drug possession, accord-
ing to a report.
The man was putting gas
in a white Ford Bronco near
his residence just before mid-
night when a deputy arrived
to investigate a report ofa vehi-
cle blocking the roadway at
Pinebreeze Circle in Callahan,
deputies said. After helping the
man start the Bronco, the'
deputy moved his patrol vehi-
cle.
Noticing a black Ford F250
parked behind the Broncoand
not moving, the deputy report-
edly went to check on the driv-
er. A quick look in the window
revealed a plastic bag contain-
ing what the deputy believed to
be marijuana, according to the
report. Upon seeing the deputy
near the truck, the man ran to
the vehicle, hopped inside and
tossed the bag into the back
of the cab, deputies said.

additional bag of marijuana, a
small amount outside a bag,
an assortment of prescription
drugs, a digital scale, plastic
bags and a glass pipe with
burnt marijuana residue inside,
deputies alleged.
The deputy field tested the
substance and confirmed it
was marijuana, and a subse-
quent weighing showed a total
of 184 grams, according to the
report.

Callahan is charged with pbs-
session of marijuana over 20
grams, possession of marijua-

GARRETT PELICAN
News Leader
The accused killer in the
2007 murder of Ele Colborn
was arraigned here Thursday
on charges of murder and sex-
ual battery, prosecutors said.
Dusty Lee Bowman pleaded
not guilty to second-degree
murder and sexual battery with
a deadly weapon or physical
force.
Bowman, 39, has been serv-
Ing a life sentence in Florida
State Prison since Jan. 8 after
pleading no contest to the rape
of a 72-year-old St. Augustine
woman.
"He was just brought back
(from Florida State Prison),"
said Jbhn Kalinowski, a prose-
cutor with the Nassau County
State Attorney's Office.
St. Johns County Circuit
Court Judge Wendy Berger
sentenced Bowman to life in
prison on three counts of sexual
battery and burglary with
assault or battery after his plea.
He will serve the sentence
consecutively with aJune 8 sen-
tence of 25 years in prison for
the sexual* battery of a
Fernandina Beach woman, said
Chris Kelly, public information
officer for the State Attorney's
Office of Florida's Seventh
Circuit.

.previously
met with
SBowman Bowman at
the Charlotte
S Correctional
Institute in Punta Gorda.
During the visit, the convicted
rapist gave a taped statement
admitting to the murder of
Colborn "while' providing
detailed information about the
crime that only the killer would
know," Hurley said.
Police said a former cell-
mate at Apalachee Correctional
Institute in Sneads provided
knowledge about the case after
Bowman showed him a letter
from the Fernandina Beach
Police Department. The wit-
ness then contacted Hurley,
informing him that Bowman
still had the letter 18 months
after it was written and that he
claimed responsibility in
Colborn's murder:
Colborn, 76, was found beat-
en in her home on Inverness
Road on April 20, 2007. After
failing to regain consciousness,
she died four days later at

Scam of Week: Hotel Florida


There is a certain historic
hotel in this town that most
of us have heard of and are
proud to have as an impor-
tant part of our community.
However, like a lot of small,
family businesses trying to
survive in these timesit was
forced to shut its doors due
to financial problems.
Before it closed, a couple
from Ohio made online
reservations to stay at the
old hotel. They were plan-.
ning a trip to Amelia Island
for the spring auto Concours
d'Elegance. The hotel
required a deposit of $240 to
hold the reservation. Many
of us remember the words in
a famous Hotel California
song you can check in but
you can't check out. Upon
arrival at fhe hotel, they
could not even check in
because there was a closed
for business sign on the
door.
There were other nearby
accommodations available
that weekend so the Ohio
couple did not have to sleep
in their car or camp out on
the beach. They did want to
get back the deposit they had
paid for the reservation.
They tried to locate the
owner of the hotel but je had
left town. T1he trdit card
company was no help either
since they had paid the
deposit many months in

advance. A local friend told
them about Seniors vs.
Crime and suggested they
contact us to assist in recov-
ering their deposit.
Once involved, we I
inquired as to the where
about of the previous owner
and were told we were not
the only one trying to find
him. We checked with the
city of Ferpandina Beach and
they too had been looking for
the proprietor but to no avail.
A search of telephone
records in the
Florida/Georgia nearby area
turned up a few with the
same last name. Most were
friendly when we called ask-
ing if they had owned a hotel
in Fernandina Beach. One
particular party in St. Marys,
Ga., was not and hung up on
us twice. There had to be
some way to help this couple
that had been scammed&.....
Apparently trying to find tlhe
person that had pocketed
their $240 deposit was not
going to work.
About this time, Seniors
vs. Crime sleuths detected
some activity going on at the
hotel. Workers were scram-
bling about and it appeared

the place may have a new
owher and was getting a
much-needed facelift. So we
shifted our attention from
finding the previous owner to
meeting the new one. On one
of our surveillance we met a
nice young man who told us
that he was engaged to the
new owner's daughter. And
as it.turned out, he and the
daughter were going to man-
age the hotel after it
reopened. Sensing an oppor-
tunity, we told him about the
plight of the couple who had
lost their deposit The new
managers graciously agreed
tW give our couple a free two.,
nights stay when they
returned to Fernandina
Beach.
Seniors vs. Crime called
the couple in Cincinnati and
told them that we had been
unable to recover their lost
deposit. Then we explained
that the new owner of the
hotel had offered them a
weekend's stay at no cost to
make up for their unfortu-
nate experience. They were
most appreciative of the offer
but not sure when they
would be able to return. So
far they have not been back
but the offer still stands.


In the event that our read-
ers were to correctly guess
the name of the hotel we are
talking about, we thought
that the owners should be
made aware that the local
newspaper was going to run
this article. So we stopped by
the establishment to give
them a heads-up and guess
what? On the front door of
the hotel there was another
sign that said closed for busi-
ness. Fortunately this time
the hotel was only-temporari-
ly closed because the nice
young man we had met was
getting married to his fiancee
and had reserved their hotel
for the weekend's festivities!

Prosecution will not seek


death in Westfall murder


GARRII"I' PEI.ICAN
News leader
Prosecutors will not seek
the death penalty for James
Perry Turnage in connection
with the murder of a Yulee man
who went missing last fall,
authorities said Thursday.
Charged with second-
degree murder with a firearm,
Turnage, 44, remains in cus-
tody at Nassau County Jail on a
bond of $502,000. He stands
accused of
killing Kirk
Westfall of
Yulee.
"There
are not suf-
ficient
aggravating
factors to
Turnage impose the
death penal-
ty," said
prosecutor John Kalinowski
with the Nassau County
Assistant State Attorney's
Office.
Under the statute for seek-
ing the death penalty, he said,
the court must take into
account aggravating circum-
stances necessary to warrant
the punishment.
"I believe we have a solid
case," Kalinowski added.
Turnage had been held on a
charge of grand theft of a motor
vehicle after FBI agents arrest-
ed him in New Jersey on Oct.
14, 2010 when they allegedly
found him driving Westfall's
2003 Buick LeSabre.
Westfall, 51, was last seen
Oct. 8 at his son's Yulee High
School football game. The next
day his family found a pool of
blood in his home and called
police.
Turnage had been staying
on Westfall's property off Radio
Avenue after his Aug. 10 release
from a one-year prison sentence
for criminal mischief.
The men reportedly met
through a mutual friend who
was trying to help the convict-
ed felon get his life in order.

Hornets edge Warriors for first district title

B ETH JONES __
News Leader


The Hornets had to play
catch-up early Friday night
when the visiting Warriors
took a 10-0 lead after a pair of
Yulee turnovers. But it didn't
take long for Yulee to even
the score and eventually .d ,
West Nassau 38-37 for the
Hornets' first district crown.
"It's great for everyone to
win the first district champi-
onship in school history,"
said Bobby Ramsay, head
football coach at Yulee High
School. "I'm proud of the way
the kids fought. I,,, liin. "

The Hornets threw an
interception on the first play
from scrimmage, setting up a
Keith George one-yard touch-
down run. Yulee's next pos-
session ended in a fumble
and the Warriors converted it
into a 25-yard field goal. West
Nassau led 10-0..
Yulee answered with
Carson Royal's 32-yard field
goal in the second quarter,
followed up by a 20-yard
touchdown run by Derrick
"Shocka" Henry to knot the
score at 10-10.
West Nassau sophomore
Amp Simmons scored on a
six-yard run just before half-
time to put the Warriors on
top again.
West Nassau struck again
in the third quarter with a
four-yard run by George.
Yulee responded with a 43-
yard run by Henry.
George was in the end
zone again in the fourth quar-
ter, scoring on a three-yarder.
Henry then scored back-to-
back touchdowns on runs of
65 and eight yards, respec-
tively. West Nassau wasn't fin-
ished, scoring next on a 67-
yard run by Simmons- Kyle
Crews scored the two-point
conversion on a keeper. West
Nassau led by seven.
Kelvin Rainey scored for
Yulee on a 16-yard run and
the Hornets went for the win.
Henry punched it in for the
two-point conversion and the
win.
"Derrick had a big second
half," Ramsay said. "He just
wouldn't let us lose."
Henry finished the night
with 275 yards on 25 carries

Fort White spoils Pirate homecoming


BETH JONES
SNews-Leader

The Pirates had their
hands full Friday night. They
hosted the Fort White Indi-
ans for homecoming and suc-
cumbed to the visitors 65-30.
"You make mistakes and
turn the ball over against
teams like Fort White you are
going to get embarrassed and
that's what happened Friday,"
said Travis Hodge, head foot-
ball coach at Fernandina
Beach High School.
"Fort White is a good pro-
gram and we played them
because that's what we have
to do to get to where we want
to be," Hodge said. "That is
the best Fort White team I've
seen and I've seen them four
years in a row now."
The Pirates struck first,
capping a 55-yard opening
drive with a Devon Lendry
field goal.
Fort White answered four
plays later with a touchdown.
"They pretty much rolled
from there," Hodge said. "We
fumbled on our own 30 once
and they took it in to score,
we threw an interception on
our own 28 that they turned
into a score and then we had
a punt blocked that they,
turned into a score."
Fort White was up 37-3 at
halftime.
"I'm very proud of the way
our offense fought back the
second half," Hodge said.
"We executed extremely well
and put some points on the
board. Defensively, when you
give up 65, you have some
major concerns so I'm look-
ing in the mirror on that one.
That's complletlcly on Ime.

Cool weather, hot trout action


TERRY LACOSS/SPECIAI,
This pair of nice Fernandina Beach sea trout, above, took live shrimp worked under a,
popping float. Pictured are Thomas McTier, left, and Dan Love. Below, Len and Dean
Krugman, from left, fished with diving minnow plugs and boated a nice sea trout and
bluefish.


~:tt~'


Many avid backwater fisherjnen are
simply loving recent near-record
air temperatures that have plum-
meted local water temperatures.
Certainly cooler water temperatures (72
degrees) signal the beginning of Amelia
Island's fall and winter sea trout seasons,
when trout weighing up to five pounds are
commonly taken while live bait fishing or cast-
ing artificial lures.
Skip Swain and Justin Paulk recently blew
away all of the competition
during the Jacksonville Creek
Wars Backwater Tournament
with a 7.3-pound spotted sea
trout.
"It was just getting light
when a huge sea trout
slammed my Jerk Bait as the
hard bait floated back to the
surface," Swain said. "I actual-
OUTDOORS ly thought I had hooked a big
.... redfish as my hooked fish
erya made several strong runs for
TerryLacoss the nearby shallow edges of
the river. My hooked fish came to the surface'
making large boils with its tail sticking out of
the water. I told my fishing partner Justin
Paulk, 'What a.trout.'"
After a few more hard runs, Paul netted
Swain's big trout and their success was soon
announced with hoops and hollers that could
clearly be heard on nearby Centre Street.
"The big speck is my personal best," said
Swain of St. Marys, Ga.."I definitely have plans
for mounting that big trout."
Spotted sea trout can live up to 15 years
old, but most spotted trout dop't live more
than five years. Along Florida's east coast,
large sow females weighing more than five
pounds are frequently called "gator" trout
Saltwater angler Craig F. Carsonlanded the
all-time IGFAworld record spotted sea trout
while fishing the Fort Pierce inlet with live
mullet. Targeting snook, instead Carson land-
ed a new world record spotted sea trout on
May 11, 1995, weighing 17 pounds 7 ounces.
The cooler months of fall, winter arid spring
are by far the best time of year for taking tro-
phy sea trout while fishing the fertile fishing
waters of Fernandina Beach. One of the better
areas to hook up with trophy sea trout is Tiger
Basin, where a high flood tide finds clear
water conditions and lots of bait fish activity.
Live finger mullet and large live shrimp fished
under a popping cork is a deadly trout fishing
tactic while trout fishing the shallow, oyster-
laden bay waters of Tiger Basin.
The mouth of Egans Creek, Where deep
shorelines harbor broken dock pilings and a
rocky shoreline, is a huge attraction for big
specks during the first of the falling tide. Work
minnow-type jerk baits over the rocky bottom
and hang on, trout fishermen.

SPECIAL
Skip Swain of St. Marys, Ga., took first-
place honors recently during the
Jacksonville Creek Wars Backwater
Tournament with this giant 7.4-pound
spotted sea trout.

The flats at the headwaters of Lanceford
Creek also harbor trophy sea trout during the
last of the incoming and the first of the outgo-
ing tides. Trout fishermen will find a combina-
tion of mud and sand bottoms, where numer-
ous oyster bars and small marsh islands make
for perfect sea trout ambush points. Top'water
fishing is key for big specks while working
Storm's "Chug Bug" and Rapala's "Skitter
Walk." Expect massive topwater strikes from
better than average sea trout.
At Nassau Sound, the mouth of Simpson
and Sawpit creeks offers excellent trophy-sea
trout fishing during the high incoming tide.
Drift a live finger mullet under a popping cork
or large live shrimp under a popping cork.
The deep channel under the Shave Bridge
offers excellent trophy trout fishing during the
slower moving tides. Fish deep with large live.,
shrimp rigged to a traditional trout float and
weight.'

Halloween marks the start of hectic holiday season


excitement is in the air, espe-
~cially for kids and those
adults who have never out-
grown trick or treat time.
Halloween is the first of the Big
Three, followed by Thanksgiving
and Chrislmas. It is the beginning of
a wild ride that does not end until
January.
Hard not to notice that Halloween
is coming. Mountains of mini candy
bars greet us as we do our grocery
shopping. Big Gtuy and I try and
avert eyes as we pass our favorites.
At our house the trick is not to buy
the candy too early and select'a
brand that is not one we crave. The
Big guy and I never stoop to giving
out apples. We both remember the
fruit people from our own trick or
treat days.
Temporary roadside stands sell


their pumpkins -
orange, bumpy and
in all sizes. For
some it isn't easy
finding the perfect
pumpkins. Not as
bad as selecting the
perfect Christmas
tree, but still chal-
FROM lenging.
O Eager to find out
THE what my grandchil-
PORCH dren plan to "be"
this Halloween, I
caught up with
Dickie each. The eldest,
Anderson Eleanor, plans to be
the tooth fairy and
is trying to enlist her younger broth-
er to be a tooth. He is not buying
into the concept. Josie, the eldest in
her family, will be a witch with pink


hair and her baby brother will be
her black cat. My sister, a volunteer
at an a aquariutm, is going to a party
di'essed as Athena, her favorite
aquarium creature -an octopus.
Stay tuned. I think it involves several
pairs of pantyhose.
So how did this holiday of ghosts
and goblins come about? Starting in
Ireland, the origins of the annual
door-to-door trick-or-treating go
back many centuries. At the end of
summer, it was believed that the
dead revisited the mortal world.
Huge bonfires were built to ward off
evil spirits. In present-day Ireland,
adults and children dIcress iup as crea-
tures from the under world (ghosts,
ghouls, zombies, witches and gob-
lins), light bonfires and enjoy fire-
works displays. Children knock on
doors to gather fruit, nuts and


sweets. Salt was once sprinkled in
the hair of children to protect
them from evil spirits. Houses are
decorated with pumpkins or turnips
that have been carved with scary
faces.
The migration of the Irish to
America brought Halloween to the
United States. Halloween became
big business in the 1950s. Stores
began to sell decorations, costumes,
greeting cards and, of course, candy.
Halloween is big business for retail-
ers second only to Christmas.
Halloween is a holiday that deliv-
ers. When darkness falls, clusters of
young children go from door to door
ringing doorbells, hoping for treats.
Many porches have a carved pump-
kin or two. Scary or silly faces flick-
er in the darkening night.
On the designated night, our first


alert is the barking of our two'tiny
.watchdogs. By the end of the
evening they are exhausted. The Big
Guy and I take turns answering the
door. We have seen it all from
beautiful and glamorous to ghoulish
and scary. Often we see a parent qui-
etly watching and insuring the safety
of their trick-or-treaters.
It's the season put your calorie
concerns aside. Enjoy the magical
night and the excitement of small
children. Offer them a trick and don
a witches hat or scary mask. Pile
that candy bowl high and wait for
the creatures of the night to ring
your doorbell.

Canyon tales
The Fernandina Beach Rotary Club recently enjoyed a pres-
entation by retired Air Force colonel and college educator Bert
Bright, at left with club President Shannon Brown, on his trip
into the Grand Canyon. Bright and four life-long friends all in
their 70s undertook a "rim to rim" excursion in which they
hiked down from the south rim of the canyon, crossed the
Colorado River and then hiked up to the north rim. Although the
entire hike is only 22 miles, a drop from 10,000 to 2,000 feet
and difficult terrain forced the men to take three days to com-
plete it. Planning for the trip took more than a year, but still
could not prevent one of the men from breaking his ankle during
the hike into the canyon. Bright and his three remaining friends
completed the journey, however, and returned with incredible
photos and memories, which he shared with the club.
The Fernandina Beach Rotary Club meets every Wednesday
from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Florida House Inn in down-
town Fernandina Beach. For information visit www.fernandin-

'Renew and Refresh'


with chapel guest


Dr. John Guest, author of
10 books on the Christian
lifestyle, will speak words of
inspiration and renewal from
the pulpit of the Amelia
Plantation Chapel on Sunday
at 9:15 a.m., 11:15 a.m. and,
again at 7 p.m.
Guest and Ted Schroder,
pastor of Amelia Plantation
Chapel, have been colleagues
for 40 years. "John," says
Schroder, "is a gifted speaker
with the ability to speak to the
needs of a community such as
ours. People respond posi-
tively to his approach. You will
find him easy to listen to and
will appreciate his content."
Guest was born and raised
in Oxford, England, where at
the age of 18, while studying to
be an engineer, he attended a
,Billy Graham crusade and
committed his life to Christ.
He was ordained some years
later and shortly thereafter,
moved to the United States as
part of the Christian rock
band, The Exkursions.
Guest served as senior pas-
tor and rector of St. Stephen's
Episcopal Church in Sewick-
ley, Pa., for more than 20 years.
He also served as co-founder
of Trinity Episcopal School for
Ministry (TESM), in Pitts-
burgh; was a participant in the
Lausanne Committee on
World Evangelism; and co-
founded the South American
Missionary Society. Addition-
ally, he was a founding leader
of the Coalition for Christian
Outreach (CCO). As presi-
dent of the John Guest
Evangelistic Team (iGET) for
over 20 years, Guest and his
team conducted citywide evan-
gelistic crusades, traveling all
over the United States as well
as to Albania, Romania, Cuba,
Ukraine, Ghana and West
Africa, reaching morethan
1,500,000 people.
Gyest stepped down from
the leadership of Christ


Church at
Grove Farm,
in Sewickley,
Pa., in
December
2010, where
he served as
senior pastor
Guest and rector for
15 years. For
30 years, his
sermon messages were heard
on the LifeFocus with John
Guest radio program in the
Western Pennsylvania listen-
ing area. Guest began his min-
istry in Pittsburgh some 40
years ago, and dedicated him-
self to helping make
Pittsburgh "as famous for God
as it was for steel."
As Rector-Emeritus and
Minister-at-Large with Christ
Church at Grove Farm, and
Seasonal Chaplain at Ocean
Reef Community in the Florida
Keys for six months of the
year, Guest will continue
speaking engagements
throughout the country. He
and his wife, Kathie, continue
to worship at Christ Church
at Grove Farm, their spiritual
home, when in Pittsburgh.
Perhaps the mark' of
Guest's ministry is his uncom-
promising, thoroughly evan-
gelical preaching style. He has
been called "the thinking per-
son's evangelist," a term that
rightly describes his gift for
combining brilliant apologet-
ics with a powerful speaking
style. Bring a friend to the
Chapel on Oct. 30 and be pre-
pared to hear a word of for-
giveness, cleansing, healing,
correction, conviction, assur-
ance or illumination from the
Lord.
The Amelia Plantation
Chapel is located behind the
Omni Amelia Island Plantation
Spa and Shops at 36 Bowman
Road. Call 277-4414 for infor-
