A former fire chief,'Leeper sug-
gested usih'g lLthI vi,,uril. r depart-
ments as proving grounds for future
hires of paid personnel.


"We can hopefully retain firefight-
ers and also help you recruit them in
such times that you hIav p ipenings." he
said.
I Graves concurred, adding that four
of his recent hires came from the vol-
unteer firefighter and reserve pro-
gram.
'These are homegrown talents and
that's another thing that we really want
to foster," he said. "We.can use this as
a recruiting tool to get these gentle-
men and ladies into the volunteer fire
departments ... and basically vet them


al that level and make suret thai we're
creating a quality product and-a qual-
ity employee."
Graves said his plan, which incor-
porated a number of recommehda-
tions. from the TriData study com-
missioned la -styear, had the supportof
the volunteer chiefs.
"The' current system that's
employed is we have independent
organizations," Graves told commis-
sioners. "The volunteers are all inde-
pendent of the county. Volunteer
departments have entered contractu-
al agreements for services with the
board. Payments are made quarterly *
and the agreements provide for vol-
unteers to respond under the author-
ity of the fire chief, so whenever we're
on scene they do fall within my
purview."

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER, 2011 BUSINESS News-Leader


Consumers

still leery
University of Florida
GAINESVILLE After a
modest gain in September, con-
sumer confidence among Flori-
dians fell in October, according
to a new University, of Florida
study.
"Consumer confidence con-
tinues to be in the doldrums,
uncomfortably near record low
levels here in Florida," said
Chris McCarty, director of UF's
Survey Research in the Bureau
of Economic and Business
Research.
That level of confidence may
remain stuck for some time,
.McCarty said, because "there
have been no consistent eco-
nomic developments over the
past couple of months to push
confidence lower or raise it from
its historically low levels."
Unlike the previous month,
when four of the five indicators.
used on the survey by UF
researchers showed improye-
ment, only two did so in Octo-
ber. Respondents also were
gloomier about the long-run
prospects for the economy. The
report found consumer confi-
dence remains shaky despite
reports of slight economic im-
provement in some sectors.
Florida's L1nemployment rate,
for instance, dropped to 10.6
percent, far better than the
record high level of 12.5'per-
cent reached in March 2010.
"One thing to keep an eye
on is the size of the labor force,"
McCarty said. "Unemployment
is the percent of those unem-
ployed but looking for work.'
Although Florida's labor force .
increased 'by 14,000 from Aug-
.ust to September, it is still down
26,000 from September of 2010."
Housing prices in Florida
appear to be bottoming out but,
maybe in for more tough times.
"A large overhang of unproces-
sed foreclosures and a reduc-
tion in, the maximum loan
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
will finance may put further
pressure on housing prices,"
McCarty said.
Florida's sagging consumer
confidence, however, does help
forecasters assess retail activity,
in the state.
"Around this time of year we
start to think about holiday
sales;" said McCarty. "The
National Retail Federation pre-
dict,.pa ,6p.'rc-ent.inicrease.this
holiday 'seison'a.nd i -ael',
flat holiday seasonal hiring.
Given the economy, sales will
probably not exceed that."


Study highlights
A report by the TriData Division of the System Planning
Corp., an independent company contracted to study the
efficiency of Nassau County Fire Rescue, recommended a
number of solutions to apparent flaws in the county's serv-
ices.
Commissioned in 2010 by the county for $40,000, TriData
representatives interviewed personnel connected with all
aspects of fire rescue services and evaluated the depart-
ment's strengths andweaknesses.
Amid other suggestions, the study recommended tre-
ating two battalion chief positions for each of the three
shifts, a move Chi:l Mailt C-a Gri nrtiid,-i.

outlined in the TriData assess-
ment, Graves said the study
suggested the operations of vol-
unteer departments fall under
direct command of the county
fire chief.
According to the study, while
the authority is provided to the
chief by statute, "there is not
an implementation plan to set
the benchmarks for Nassau
County Fire Departments
regarding level of competen-
cies, certifications and response
standards."
"They've also recognized
that we should make a con-
certed policy effort to create
and foster a larger role and
greater utilization of the volun-
teer division," he' pointed out:
"I think that's very important
to where we're going as a com-
munity and as a group that we
increase the amount that we're
using them and allow them to


provide the services that they're'
wanting to provide."
Another suggestion Graves
related was that each volunteer
organization within NCFR
should make a dedicated effort
to train with and to the same
performance standards as their
career counterparts.
Accomplishing this, he said, was
a lofty goal, albeit one warrant-
ing board consideration..
"And here's the one that's
also fairly important: tracking
the current and future fire and
rescue risks as well as analyze
annually the location of all calls
for service," he said. Currently,
the fire chief noted, the volun-
teer departments report their
calls under their individual num-
bers. He added that integrating
them would provide the county
with a greater amount of data
from which analyses can be
drawn.
Graves outlined five imme-
diate areas of improvement -


compliance with state statutes,
accountability, equipment stan-
dardization, training and certi-
fication', and records manage-
ment. All of these areas, he said,
could be streamlined to provide
better service to county resi-
dents.
"We've got some opportuni-
ties that we need to explore and
bring back to the board," said
Graves.
The first step toward inte-
gration, he said, is meeting with
assistant chief Hemmingway
and the volunteer chiefs.
"And.the next step would be
to incorporate an (Office of
Management and Budget)
employee to talk about the
money and obviously (County
Attorney David Hallman) to talk
about things such as leases and
deeds and agreements that the
volunteers have entered into,"
he said. "And then ultimately
come up with a recommenda-
tion on the plan."

WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 2.2011 OPINION News-Leader


It doesn'thave
to be done now
It's sad that while the resi-
dents of Fernandina Beach, who
live in the real world, struggle
just to get by, the city commis-
sion is determined to proceed
with Forward Fernandina, with
little or no revenue stream,
except on the backs of these
struggling residents. There is
nothing that needs to be done
right away, even though they
have already begun on Alachua,
with only a handful of people
who benefit by its opening.
The commission needs to
put the whole wish list on hold
until a different funding source
can be realized.
Case in point: When we did
Centre Street (the economy was
-:better then) there were two
planning stages prior to the
major grant application. The
first planning stage cost $13,500.
The money was raised by a
$5,000 contribution from the
Amelia Island Plantation. The
balance was raised by the cham-
ber of commerce and mer-
Schants' association placing an
assessment of $2 per front foot
for every property owner on
,. Centre Street and $1 per front
foot assessment for property
owners between Second and
Seventh streets and between
Ash and Alachua streets. The
assessment .was'voluntary and
we had aboutt,95 percent par-


ticipation.
The second and working
drawings plans were accom-
plished by a $34,750 matching
grant from the National Endow-
ment for the Arts.-Our match
came in the form of in-kind
assistance.
Now we had the plans, with
an estimated cost of $1.353 mil-
lion. We didn't have the money,
and even though we believed
the improvements would cer-
tainly help the economy of
downtown, we weren't about to
try to make the residents pay
the cost. We put the plans on
the shelf until we could find a
financing mechanism. This
came later as the result of a
grant application prepared by
Buddy Jacobs and myself. We
received a grant for the full
amount from the Economic
Development Administration.
Needless- to say, Centre
Street more than exceeded our
hopes of improving the' eco--
nomic stability of our downtown
area while increasing-employ-
ment opportunities.
The bottom line is just.
because you have some plans; it
doesn't mean you have to begin
any of them right away. We wait-
ed on Centre Street, and it was
far more essential to.this com-
munity than anything on the
wish lish
i We need commissioners,
,who approach the .future with
common business sense. We

seem to be lacking that now.
I might offer a suggestion
to those interested in planning
how to spend other people's
money inventory all of the
city's vacant property including
land in the Greenway, but not
used in the Greenway itself.
-Then determine what land is
not needed, properly zone the
parcels, sell it and pledge the
income to capital improvements
on a priority basis.
Just a suggestion.
Beano Roberts
Former city commissioner
Fernandina Beach

Arrogant attitudes'
I don't'know how I missed"
them the first time, but in the
article about the recent city
commission debate ("5 split on
way forward," Oct. 26) Tim
Poyner's incredible comments
that "It's the government's job
to spend money" and "It cost a
certain amount of money to live
in Fernandina Beach and if one
can't afford to live here one
should :move" absolutely
screamed out at me. With that
kind of astounding. arrogance
he should go to work at the
White House! (Susan) Steger
stated she was sure he regret-
ted saying those, words,' and I


agree politicians often regret
it when they slip up and actual-
ly say what they really think!
The government spending
comment, while appalling, was
not uncommon enough from a
politician to be shocking. The
one that really made me want to
scream was the "certain amount
of money" remark. Is that what
we elected you for, Mr. Poyner,
to decide what the required
income level for residency here
will be? That's a boatload of
arrogance for anyone, especially
a politician who's only been
here a relatively short time.
Arrogant attitudes like that
are exactly why people are fed
up with our fine city govern-
ment.
Kevin Lawrence
Fernandina Beach

Performance review
Remember when the city
conimissiqg, talked about hav-
ing he :,city elections in
Noyvfiber rather than April so
that,all..electiops (city, county,
state and federal wquld be held
ar tLiL- ;~'iit time to sve, the tax-,
payer np.qney? A grat scheme
to extend their terms of office
for seven months, thereby com-
pletipga' pverreachiig agenda.
Self-serving? Perhaps. And the


big surprise is that there are no
county, state or federal elections
this November, only.city, so
there is no real savings to the
city! We'll probably have to pay
the county for handling this
November's city election. That's
right, increasing election costs
in order to extend our commis-
sioners' term of office.
And during the seven addi-
tional months they granted to
themselves our commission
passed a $6 million bundled
maze of projects called the
Forward Fernandina Strategic
Plan. They denied voters a bal-
lot referendum on,their strate-
gic plah; not only that, but after
considerable public comment
on pros and cons of the strategic
plan, there was no discussion
whatsoever between our com-
missions; the arrogant gavel
.banged out their unanimous,
uncommented upon approval.
Consider another debatable
achievement (without debate)
of this commission: The new
Amelia Island Plantation-type
lighting downtown that we had
no say in. They just did it. And,
of course, they brought us
Sunday morning liquor and a, 6
percenthigher property tax bil:.
An item of special concern is
,that in'August, when so many
folks, went on vacation, com-n
missioners railroaded ".h rough

only addresses improvements
to our downtown). Does taxing
electricity have anything to do
with renovating a federal build-
ing we don't own, buying a new
library, a road improvement
, across the railroad tracks or the
enhancement of the riverfront?
An increased electric franchise
tax could more appropriately
fund improvements to electric
power distribution systems such
as underground utilities, par-
ticularly along A1A. Inciden-
tally, there is an existing 2.57
percent municipal tax on your
electric bill that has not been
mentioned in any of their dis-
cussions.
Pressing issues that the com-
mission deferred taking action
on include the impact fees that
business owners claim are egre-
giously high and have resulted
in a pending class-action law-
suit; and failure to resolve their
dispute with the airport opera-
tors. They have decided, to
appeal the airport's million-dol-
lar award against the city, which
will now involve additional legal
fees and interest.
And the enduring question:
Is the city manager wagging the
commissioners' dog?

Whods the boss?
yi Ilris ecion time, wow, excit-
*,ing, isnt iP As many of us have
noticed in our travels aroUnd
the island, there are some
unhappy folks whining about
the present situation in the city.
Should you' agree or disagree
with the present situation, now
ij'the time to re-enforce that
belief There are basically'two
ways to do thatI-The most obvi-
ous way is to vote. (If you don't,
vote, don't whine.) The less cho-
sen way is to get someone else
to vo te who agrees v ith the way
u Ibiuik Simply put support
a candidate, let oihr lis know
why and get them to vote.
The hard part is, who are
you gaping tovote for and whiy'
What does that pers-,n plan lu
do,. or what has that person
done while they were in of e
Are you happy with the ideas'
and goals our present workers
are trying to obtain? I would
rather call our city officials "wor-
kers" than city officials. The
truth is, they work for us. We
i can hire them and fire them.
It is time for all of us to do
some soul searching. We should
be asking (urer.l (:_ suppoIltive 6f WhIt _li"' hap-
. opened and what direction'our
employees (remember, we are
the boss) want to take us in the'
coming years? Recent issues
include: the privatization of the
marina and golf course; tree cut-
:ting; the airp-rt lawsuit; con-.
tract issues with our city unions;
salary increases as well as
decreases; downtown lighting;
the idea of paid parking wher-
ever that ends up.
Do you feelthe city has lis-
tened to city employee sugges-
tions as far as cost-cutting meas-
ures are concerned? Are you,
or did you, supportthe strategic
plan issue, how the money was
appropriated and how that mo-
ney will be spent? Do you trust
them when they tell you some-
thing is a dead issue, or do you
feel it will come back up time
and time again like the corpses
in the "Night of the Living
Dead"? Are you happy with the
long term/short term renting
issue? Have the impact fee rules
been business friendly?
Last, are you happy with the
way our employees have com-
municated with us via phone or
email, or in defending ,them-
selves against all the alleged
mistruths printed in this paper
week after week?
I must say that I have found
most will get back to me either
by email or by phone.:I.give
them my thanks' for allowing
me to share my thoughts with
them over the years.
: Now is the time for each and
Severy one of us to really do our
job.,It is not any different from
running business. We are the
boss. We have a chance to fill a
few. open positions and.we must
interview each person seeking
that job. We must do a per-
formance review of those who
are currently working for us
and judge their performance. If
they have met our goals.and we
feel they will follow a path in
line with our view, we would be
downright stupid to not'rehire
them.
New for just the sake of


change would be wrong. If the
new, applicants convince you
theywill follow a path closer to
what would make you (the
boss) happy, then they should
get the job.
It is time we understand that
the responsibility for the next
few years falls on our shoul-
Odetr. It is going to be a pivotal
few years for our city. There
are some big issues floating
around out there that may have
a major impact on the island.
The thing we cannot forget is:
Who's the boss? ,

subsidizing America.
A majority of Americans do not support
robbery. If someone who was subsidized by
the government was asked to pay a 5 percent
tax on their cash assistance, or their food
stamps they wouldn't go for it, and it isn't
even their money! It is given to them.
However, it is somehow OK to ask corpora-
tions, or anyone for that matter who earns a
good income, to give money to subsidize the
lower 40 percent.
When that majority begin to pay into the
system, then I'd like to hear their opinions on
paying more taxes. Occupy Wall Street likes to
coast on the 99 percent, and claims to be
protesting for everyone. This is not the case.
Everyone is not part of the 99 percent. The 99
percent aren't condoning ACORN and similar
political action committees going to the middle
class, and asking them for donations for vari-
ous causes only to have that money spent on
the Occupy Wall Street movement. Only those
that you see on the picket lines are.
There are better solutions. Stabilizing the
middle class begins by reducing their tax bur-
den and creating easier paths to entrepreneur-
ship. This would help middle-class families
support themselves and move up in the world.
If they are stable and happy, that is a recipe for
a prosperous America. That would increase
job growth, and as an extension contribute
more to the taxable base.
We need to call a spade a spade. The cards
I see on the table say that Occupy Wall Street
isn't a passage for the middle class upward. It's
a passage for everyone else downward.

Support troops or pirates?
As a Vietnam Veteran I have enjoyed
participating in the November Veterans
Day parade for the last few years. Until
last year! The Fernandina Beach Pirates
were in the parade with their float that has
the loud cannon which they repeatedly
shot off during the event. This cannon
makes the same noise, that a 122mm
artillery shell makes; the same ordnance
that was fired upon me from the Viet Cong.
I have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from
my wartime experience. On parade day
last year, I made a direct appeal to the driv-
er of the float to stop making any more
noise, which was ignored.
I went to the Fernandina Police
Department and spoke to the duty officer
about this noise; he told me to complain to
the city government. I spoke to the city
manager, who listened to my story but
offered no help. This year I called the lady
who helps organize the parade. She said the
Pirates have a permit and will be in the
parade again. I am not able to be within
earshot of the Pirates cannon. I can simply
avoid the event.
My concern is that humans and ani-
mals are adversely affected by extremely
loud noise and can be very seriously trau-
matized. This includes children, mentally
limited adults, and the elderly. Exposure
only one time to this type of explosive noise
can cause very serious and permanent
mental trauma to anyone not knowing if the
next one will kill him. I saw dogs very
upset by the Pirates' cannon at last year's
parade. I care for animals and am con-
cerned that this is happening. This type
of loud noise can cause physical damages
in humans and animals such as hearing
loss, hypertension, ischemic heart disease


and a host of other problems. All this done
in the name of fun?
The effects of this kind of noise on
humans and animals can be cataclysmic.
Noise pollution is becoming a serious envi-
ronmental issue. Although most cities have
noise ordinances preventing the making of
loud noises within city limits, which carry
large fines, the city of Fernandina Beach
does not have a sound ordinance. It does
have an ordinance prohibiting the shooting
of guns in the city. Fernandina Beach
should consider the need for a noise ordi-
nance to protect the health and well being
of its citizens; at a minimum they should tell
the Pirate float people to reduce their sound
level in the parade. It is a matter of public
health.

Twistedwords
Over the years I've noticed local, state
and federal government agencies utilizing
terms that are "warm and fuzzy" in an
attempt to convince the reader that the
title of their message is reason enough to
support their cause. More often than not,
these innocuous sounding words are
reversed in their meaning. An example of
this locally is "Forward Fernandina," which
essentially means backwards Fernandina.
Our elected officials believe that our small
town needs to go into debt to build a walk-
way over railroad tracks, remodel a post
office and revamp our current library. Only
a politician could believe that borrowing $6
million without a public vote in the middle
of a worldwide economic collapse was a
grand idea.
The United Nations is a master of deceit
and at reversing semantics. They have
taken the word sustainable and turned it
into a tool for total government control.
They have hijacked not only the word sus-
tainable, but the entire
environmental/green movement to further
their cause of global control. Beginning in
1992 the United Nations Department of
Economic and Social Affairs created a new
division for Sustainable Development. Then
they created Sustainable Management of
Forests. To help support these, the United
Nations created a Commission of
Sustainable Development (CSD). This led
to a World Summit on Sustainable
Development (WSSD). They somehow
believe that all these "warm and fuzzy"
names and acronyms give both respectabil-
ity and clout to their causes. These new pro-
grams led to the Sustainable Development
and Productivity program. The United
Nations then began Solutions for
Biodiversity, Climate Change (global warm-


ing) and Poverty to make certain they were
covering all the bases.
So the question is, just what is sustain-
able development and where did this term
that is so widely used now originate? The
father of this term and master plan is
Maurice Strong, the 1992 Secretary
General of the United Nations. To justify
the various "sustainable" programs, Mr.
Strong had this to say, and I quote, "The
current lifestyles and consumption pat-
terns of the affluent middle class involving
high meat consumption, large amounts of
frozen and convenience food, the use of
fossil fuels, appliances at work and home,
air conditioners and suburban houses are
not sustainable." He went on to say that the
United Nations has the "responsibility to
bring about the collapse of the industrial-
ized nations," end quote. Now the United
Nations has added the Smart Growth Plan
(you have to admit, this is definitely a won-
derful sounding warm and fuzzy term).
This plan calls for an end to private auto-
mobiles and a conversion to mass transit
among other things. An example in our
state would be the push for the high-speed
rail between Orlando and Tampa.
Incorporated into the Smart Growth Plan
is something called the Wildlands Project.
This involves private property acquisition
through eminent domain where 50 per-
cent of the stolen property is to be "rewil-
ded."
The state of Florida recently made avail-
able $100 million (consisting of various
grants funded by the United Nations) that
is designated for four Florida counties to
acquire permanent conservation ease-
ments from the Kissimmee River to the
Everglades. The United Nations recently
sent an itemized bill to the United States for
helping with the worldwide sustainable
development programs. The total bill
amounts to wait for it $76 trillion and
they have so graciously allowed us 40 years
to pay it off! I utilized the United Nations
website for most all of the information pre-
sented here. I encourLage you to go online
and Google or YouTube thlie lerm sustain-
able development and discover how it
affects you and your family. Turn your TV
off. Search for the truth online. Wake up
America, get engaged. Read both your
Bible iand our Constitution and let's try to
save our great nation.

In our isolated world on
Amelia Island, where natural
freshwater supplies are virtu-

a frog. Retention ponds are
designed to contain chemicals
from o.ur roads, lawns and
gardens from reaching the.
natural waterways. But on
Amelia Island, it's a difficult
task to even find a "natural
waterway."
For'years Bucko and I
have watched with sadness as
frogs of any type disappeared
species by species, individual

yard retention pond. When *
we first moved to Simmons
Cove it was only half "built-

retention pond was relatively-
unsullied by fertilizers, pe-li-'
cides and street runoff. Then
the frogs were plentiful, with'

These days, when it rains, it is
often soundless afterwards.
And the sight of frogs hop-
ping from the- shoi e into the
pond when disturbed or pairs
of bulging frog eyes at the
surface are nearly absent.
The many houses using
chemicals to maintain their
adjacent yards,,and the many
cars spewing oil on the road-
way has taken its toll. Our
pond has just about lost its ,
frogs.

Why I
Brookelynne was diagnosed
with Acute Lymphoblastic
Leukemia on Dec. 10, 2009, at
the age of 3 1/2. We are very
blessed that Brookelynne has
responded well to her treatment
plan. Brookelynne is a very
active 5-year-old girl.
Brookelynne has a passion
for life, she loves dance, has a
love and passion for Jesus, she
loves church and Sunday
school and has told Mommy at
times, "No cry, Jesus will take
care of me."
Brookelynne is the youngest
of three; she has big Sissy
Kayla, who is 16, and Big
"Bubba" Jimmy, who is 12.
Btookelynne enjoys reading
books, dancing and anything
musical singing, playing
drums, guitar. She also loves
Hello Kitty, Rapunzel, and of
course she thinks she is
Hannah Montana. She was very
excited about starting kinder-
garten this year. She was
recently awarded the honor of
being Student of the Week.

Candidates agree: Spare trees near airport


ANGELA DAUGHTRY.
News-Leader

Five candidates for city com-
mission fielded questions at the
municipal golf course last week
at a forum sponsored by the
Selva Verde subdivision and
surrounding communities.
More than 100 people attended.
According to moderator
Sam Lane, questions at the Oct.
26 event were meant to cover
"issues unique to the middle of
'the island."
They centered on land-use
issues such as preservation of
the island's trees, the city's
vision for the golf. course and
.municipal airport, resort rentals
and the potential for industrial
development around the city

Sarah Pelican and John'
Elwell are competing with Eric,
Childi's for his Group 3 seat;
Charles Corbett is challenging
Susan Steger for her Group 2
seat.
Regarding a city plan to
remove trees in and around the
airport, Elwell said he valued
trees and e\.-l thing ,u rl bring'

to remove "a whole lot more.

S "(Cutting
trees) was a
very creative
way to. raise revenues,"
Childers said. "It's not going to
happen." He noted the plan now
was to cut "a bare minimum'...
for safety." "We don't need to
turn that into a regional airport
and I won't support it," he said.
As for expanding the airport
and.opening it to more busi-
nesses, Pelican said she did. not
think lit i:-i_ plakincould come
in, based on the size of the run-
v.a'\ She also said she was not
against bringing some kind of
light industry to the airport
grounds.
Steger said there is a lot of
property at the airport and it
would be a good value to the

."We have one instrument
landing and we don't need
another one," Corbett said,
adding that if planes have trou-
ble landing hii e. there are
other options. We' e gut plen-
ty of large airports around and
I'd like to keep this one just as
it is."
Elwell said he was in favor of
small b-uin'e.-sei at the airport
a lonu as; they're well con-
fined." He also noted that while
the.city funds the airport, a lot
of its passengers end up atThe
Ritz-,Carlton and other places
in the county. 'The county ben-
efits, but the city pays for it," he
said. "It falls into the consoli-
dationdiscussion." Elwell said
he. was also "firmly against
expanding" the airport.
When asked about the cily's-
con.racting rnmanagenient of its
golf course, Steger said that
many courses have been strug-.
I1ing in the bad economy. "It's
not as popular a Spurt ak it used
to be," STeger said "We could
cut and Icut (pricesi'tothe point
where we could lose the golf
course.... We had to come up
with a different way to do busi-
ness. I believe it's been very
positive for our golf course.",
Corbett said the golf course
was not really, privatized
because "the city still pay, the
bills ... I don't think the city
got as good a deal as they
thought. ...'They. should 'have
leased it to somebody "
A n-ieri beil .t "the golf
course, Elwell said he was
"happy with the way it's moving
ahead." He said he also looked
at the budget and talked to
management and "they are fully
expctirig to bri-ak even Ifin
two to i lree years it's not doing
as, it should be doing, we can
revi,'sit i :
Pelican said she also is "in.


Elwell pelican

the camp of seeing how (the
golf course) goes in the next
three years. I would hate to see-
anything happen to it it's .a
beautiful environment."
Childers said he supported
unrestricted resort rentals
throughout the city
, Corbett said the city had
passed stricter enforcement
codes and if they are enforced,
there- wouldn't't be any more
problem-s with resort rentals.
; ,Elwell said people should be
able ti rent their homes but
that the city needs to enforce
both short-term and long-
term rentals He said short-
term rentals should not be
expanded and that owners
"need to be held l11o percent
responsible for renter actions or
violations."
Pelican said the island has
many subdivisions that do not
wantresort rentals in their
neighborhoods "I saw poten-
tial lawsuits down the road,"
she said "I'm glad the city com-
mission decided to enforce the
laws that were- on the books "
Steger said rentals less than
one month are allowed only in
very restricted areas. She said
she had lived. next to a short-
term rental and "there was a
lut of commotion ...-every night
is party night I just don't think
it would work citywide I'm cau-
tious about big changes like
that." ..
Regarding the relationship
between the city comffiission
and City Manager Michael
Czymbor, Elwell said he
believed the city manager
"needs to be erigaged, and know
we ai e working for the citizens
of the city."
* Pelican said she had been
upset at some decisions "and
wondered who is running
things.... They forget they work

Steger noted that commis-
sioners are not allowed to get
involved in day-to-day opera-
tions of the city. She said wrote
a performance evaluation of the
city manager and invited those
present to read it. "I don't take
pleasure in public humiliation,"
she said. "The city manager.has
done much better."
Childers said the city man-
ager's job'has 'been difficult
because "he's had eight bosses
since being there."
"He's never lied to me and
he's done everything I asked
himn to do." Childers said. "I


can't hold him responsible for
policy decisions other commis-
sioners support." Childers also
said the average pay for a city
manager ,is $146,000 and.
Czymbor ."does (his job) for a
whole lot less than that"
"I don't know Mr. Czymbor
very well, so it's hard to make
an evaluation," Corbett said.
But, he added, as far,as deci-
sions, "I think the tail is wag-
ging the dog." He also noted
commissioners "hardly have
any discussion, it seems like
they've already decided, (how
to vote)."

4 candidates agree:

Don't move boardwalk


MICHAELA PRNLt I
'NeivsLeader '

Four of the five candidates-
for city commission agree the
Main Beach boaidi'::il,; shouldd 1
not be moved inland by- 15 feet.
'They'responded to ques- I
tions posed by 'News-Leader
Publisher Foy Maloy and
Fernandina Beachl High School
"honors: students Frances
Hanold and Adam Thomas at a
fori t Oct 26 spoins ed b' dhi.
A nmelia Island Fernandina
Restorailun Fu eundati .io Hanuld
asked about tIhe board\.alk.
which the city is considering
moving inland
"1 would not be in favor of
relocating it," c.andidate Saallh
Pelican replied.
"We're going to spend
$125,000 on ouir boaidv.alk "
candidate .Chai le- Curbeitt
asked. "We had 32 kids who
didn't play Little League last
year because w'e clidnl I have the
money."
"You could repair it for the
money that was used on. the
design" of a new boardwalk far-
ther away from th e beach." he
said. )
'"Wood does rot over time,"
noted John Elwell, who spent 37
years in the forestry business.
"You just have to maintain it
b _etter,..-: e:v i whteits." i"
." Coiini--lh.ii-' Ei' C1hildel -
agreed. "I don't support moving
it (but ... itis in disrepair."
7 Incumbdnt Susan Steger, on
the their lhandi. siiported mov-
ing the boardwalk 1'3 feet inland
from its present site. "That
boardwalk was built in the,
'80's," -hl -aid "The.support
structure underneath is rotting"
and presents a safety hazard.
Steger seeks a second term
on 'the commission; she is
upposed by Corbett. Childers'
bid foi a second term is chal-
lenged by Elwell and Pelican.
The city election is Tuesday.
Maloy asked the candidates
whether a profe-ss--ional union,
negotiator -hould be hired to
deal with the city's three
employee unions as growing
pension and health care obli-
gations must be addressed in
future city budgets. -
Corb'ett, Pelican and Elwell
said a professional negotiator
should be hired. "You' need a'
pro doing union negotiating,
especially in a time like this,"
Elwell said.
But, Steger said, "It is so
incredibly expensive. It's awful-
ly hard to justify even if you get
(money'back) from the unions."
Childeirs aid City Manager
Michael Czymbor "hls been
very successful" in such nego-
tiations and he preferred to
keep the system as is.
Thomas asked how the city
could provide more jobs for
young people like him who will


soon'be off to college.
Tourism and the two local
mills provide most tof the avail-
able job-., Ehwell noted, and
many of those do not require
ce.llege educations. "We need
to make it attractive" for busi-
nesses to locate in the city that
do provide for such higher pay-
ing jobs, he said.
"First off. the government
does, not create j6bs," said
Corbett. an executive with the
local fertilizer company that.
once ran the pogy plant here
'The city of Fernandina Beach
need-s to get out of businesses'
way and they'll be able to
hil e you younger people
"We need to start looking
fui technology jobs." not just
service jobs,. agreed Childers.
Pelican. who worked part-
tirme while raising her family.
note-d two of her sons found
work in, Fernandina or
.lacksonvill'e after graduating
from college (one of those,.
Garrett Pelican, is a reporter
fer he News-Lcad r)..
"The opportunity for young
peop.- today" is much greater
than when she grew up in
Fc-rnandina. Steger said. "We
have many more diverse type
jobs available now."
Asked why voters should
choose them, the candidates'
replies included:
"I'm the point man-for the
people,"r Corbett said. What
would he like to seeP "How
about a busines-.-friendly and
people-friendly City Hall," he
said. '
",'ve been in business for 37
years- managing people I've
hir-d and fired people You
have to make tough decisions
. I bring a wealth of knowl-
edge and business experience
to the table," Elwell said.
He professed a desire for
"far more fiscal accountability,
fpr more financial disclosure."
"I got involved in this'
process because I was tired of
seeing the citizens no, longer
involved in this. town.,. .-I
would like. to restore trust and
be a voice for the people,"'
Pelican said.
Citing her financial back-
ground and experience as a
cunim;-lnsioner and mayor.
Steger said. "We are a complex
city airport, ,marina,'golf
.course a lot to manage.... It
is easy to be angry but cool
heads must prevail" to solve
city problems.
"The city has made a three-
year investment in me," said
Childers, noting how much,he
has learned in his first term.
"I've brought a new level of
transparency" as well, he said,
noting his website eric-

Pit bull


defenders

say dogs


good pets

Florida News Connection

TALLAHASSEE It
could be the most misun-
derstood breed of dog out
there, but fans of the canines
in question are hoping to
change perceptions. October
was Pit Bull Awareness
Month, and such groups as
the Humane Society of the
United States say the breed
is unfairly portrayed as
vicious and unstable.
The groups are hoping
"ambassador dogs" and
other programs can demon-
strate that pit bulls are great
prospects for family pets. .
A. dam Goldfarb, dii rct:.r
of pet care issues for the
Humane Society, says shel-
ters in Florida and elsewhere
are always inundated with pit
bulls for a number of rea-
sons.
"'There are just more of
them. There's more indis-
criminate breeding going on
today with pit bulls than with,
other breeds."
Florida-based "Pit Bulls .4
Patriots" rescues orphaned
pit bulls, and other breeds,
training the ones deemed:
suitable to serve veterans
who suffer fr6m post-trau-
matic stress disorder. On the
other side, to be sure, Florida
police have had to shoot pit
bulls in at least three sepa-
rate incidents this year.
Goldfarb says the pit bull
has even been unfairly gin-
gled out by many communi-
ties across the state and the
nation. "
"A "Saint. Bernard can '
cause more damage than a
Chihuahua, but that holds
across for all large breeds or
all strong'breeds."
Goldfarb noted that in
most cases of canine aggres-
sive behavior, the blame usu-
ally falls on the owner's train-
ing skills, and with pit.bulls
.and other robust breeds, it's
important to know what
you're getting into.




Balloon.


releases


harm


wildlife
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission reminds event
organizers and other
Floridians about a law pro-
hibiting the release of more,
than nine lighter-than-air bal-
loons within a 24-hour peri-
od.
S While releasing balloons
is often an idea of groups that
wowish to honor an event or
S lost loved'one, the FWC
encourages the public to
choose more environmen-
tally responsible actions for
their events.
Balloons released in
Florida almost inevitably end
up in the Gulf of Mexico or
Atlantic Ocean. Wildlife,
; especially sea turtles, mis-
take balloons for food, and
strings attached to balloons
can entangle. birds and other
animals."
S The release into the
atmosphere of large num-
,be'rs ,,f balldri in flawed with .
Slighter-thani-air gases iposes a
Sdange:r and nuikancr to the
rnvii onnmi-rt. particularly to
wildlife and marine animals.
i.. Violators could incur $250
in fines according to Florida
l aw.
SThere are exceptions for
sdIentilc or meteorological
balloons released by a gov-
ernment agency or under
Government contract, hot air
balloons that are recovered
after launching and balloons
released indoors. The law


also allows for the release of
balloons that are biodegrad-
able or photodegradable
under FWC rules. Since
1989, the FWC has received
only one such balloon design
for review,.and that balloon
was not approved.

"Soft" Drinks Can Be .

Hard on Teeth!


I.
The Dulitists of"
Amelia"Denial rufuLp


Sd1o n I a I
'p iii n I o If
view, there's
n o ol t i n g
softf" about
s o c a 1 l ed
"sol'( drinks."-
Mlany people


recognize sodas ire had and
assume that it' has to do with
'the sugar copteiit. Of ten
people think tlfat drinking
a "diet'" cola will save them.
from excess calories and are
therefore hcliler to drink.
Unfortunately these notions
are inaccurate,
First let me address the
clamage caused to t.he teeth
from the sugar conlenIt iof
sodas. One nornnal size can of
cola contains approximately
10'teaspoons of sugar. The
sugar in soft drinks does not
directly cldamage the tecth.
The damage comes from
the bacteria in your mouth,.
, feeding 'iI I .. ", I l,.
bacteria illn plaqtle iige t the
sugar Ihen release acids onti
the teeth that eat into your


enamel. The more, sugar you
consume, the more acid the
plaque bacteria produce and a
cavity is formed.
The second damaging
effect of carbonated drinks is
from the fizz itself. The fizz
is carbonic acid, which is like
bathing your teeth in battery
acid. The acid eats aw'ay
at your enamel and dentin,
and causes erosion and mini
potholes in your teeth. Once
the enamel is gone, your
body can't make new enamel.
It's lost forever.
Remember-after drinking
"soft,drinks" the residue of
sugar and acid remain in
contact with your teeth for
long periods of time. This
creates an environment that
could lead to significant tooth-
related troubles over time.

12A WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 2,2011 NEWS News-Leader



Scam of the Week: donation requests


We are all inundated these
days by requests for donations,
usually arriving, in the mail.
Solicitations can also be made
in person, by phone or on the
Internet. There are many dif-
ferent "non-profit" organizations
that represent themselves as
volunteer-run and managed by
folks who aie unpaid volun-
teers. Some are legitimate but
others are not. The legitimate
community service organiza-
tions are necessary to the ber-.
eficial operations of a quality
community such as Fernandina
'Beach.
Service groups often
depend, at least in part, on con-
tributions from the community
they serve. They solicit in and
around our communities.
Locally, the library, hospital,
animal shelter, fire/rescue,
school, sports, arts and low-
income service groups are all
looking for your dollars. These'
solicitations often seem like
business-organization appeals
or advertising efforts. The real-
ity is that they are competing
with each other for your dol-
lars. So the question is, to
whom do you donate? Which
solicitations are scams? Which
groups are frauds and don't


deserve your dollars and which
are legitimate? How do you
make the distinction?
First, do not donate money
if you are unsure of the organ-
ization and not familiar with
.their work in your community.
Unless you know the organiza-
tion well, do not give to state,
national or global appeals. Keep
your dollars close to home
where you can see them at
work every day. You are at
greater risk of fraud abuse
when.' you donate to large
organizations because you can't
see how they are using your
money.
If there is some prize or
other reward involved to get
you to support the organiza-
tion, it is most likely a fraudu-
lent solicitation. Do not give to
non-profits who are offering a
gift, trip or some other reward'
for your support. These are
scams to get your hard earned
dollars and you.will most likely
never see the prize or trip. If
the solicitor wants you to pay a
fee or other charge to claim
your prize, you may be assured
you are about to be scammed.
/ The nanre. and address
. labels you receive in the mail
are intended to make you feel


guilty if you don't send back a
donation. Some organizations
are even mailing you nickels or
dimes to get your attention. Our
advice isto add-them to your
piggy bank and then discard
the correspondence.
Do not give your personal
information to any solicitor's
inquiry. If you have never heard
of the organization but may
have an interest in helping
them, find out about the group
and do your homework before
you contribute. A simple call to
the Fernandina Beach Police
Department, Nassau County
Sheriff's Office, Better-
Business Bureau, chamber of
commerce, local volunteer
groups or Seniors Vs. Crime
can provide information to.
determine if the cause is legit-
imate. Before you give in
response to phone, Internet afid
media type fundraisings,'
demand a disclostire by mail. At
least this will-help prove that
the cause really does exist..
Never give your credit card
number to contribute to an
online or phone solicitation. You
may find other charges have
been made to your credit or
even worse, have your financial
identity stolen. Again, be sure


Seniors vs Crime

) A Specidl Project of the Florida Attorney General


you know to whom you are giv-
ing and if you do decide to con-
tribute, do so by check.
Door to door solicitations
are usually frauds and the
money goes in someone's pock-
et. Having said that, today a
commission candidate came by
our home but she was not ask-
ing for a contribution and that
was fine. For others that show
up at your door wanting a dona-
tion (except of course on Hallo-
ween), demand they leave infor-
mation or mail it to you. In that
way, if you are interested in giv-
ing you can check on their legit-
imacy. Nevei let anyone in your
hoime' you don'ttknow: Be very
carefulwith'door to door solic-.
itations.

decide'under no pressure if you
should contribute. Almost any
heart throb, desperately needy
person or animal organization
solicitation could be fraudulent.
There are so many of them out
there it's impossible to know if.
most are legitimate or not:'.
Many of these groups change
their names frequently. bur keep
puckeiing contributions from
tunknuwing victims
Finally, remember if yout
.give any organization money,
you may be flooded with other
solicitations by similar groups
since they often share contacts-
or sell your name and address."
Never send donations to off-


shore or post office box desti-
nations. If you do, there is no
telling who will end up with
your. money

Teens for


Change
HEATHER A. PERRY
News-Leader
When 15-year-old Jessica
West took her own life Sept. 8,
students at Yulee High School
mourned the death of the pop-
ular girl who enjoyed riding her
four-wheeler and playing soft-
ball.
Each coped with the loss in
their own way, but students in
an after-school group called the
Teens for Change Coalition
worked through their pain by
raising fundsto pay substitutes
so teachers could participate in
suicide prevention training.

Walktostop diabetes Nov.12
This year, more than 2,000 area residents
will come together to be part of the Stop
Diabetes movement at the Step Out: Walk to
Stop Diabetes Nov. 12 at Jacksonville Zoo and
Gardens, the one-day signature fundraising
walk benefiting the American Diabetes
Association.
Every dollar raised through Step Out plays
an important role in supporting the associa-
tion's mission: to prevent and cure diabetes
and to improve the lives of all people affected
by diabetes.
Today, there are nearly 26 million
Americans including over 120,000 in North
Florida/South Georgia who have diabetes.
While an estimated 18.8 million have been
diagnosed, unfortunately, 7 million people are
unaware that they have the disease. If current
trends continue, one in three American adults
will have diabetes by 2050.
Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes provides
an opportunity everyone to come together for a
fun, healthy activity. It's an event for anyone
who wants to support the association and raise
critical funds that will help stop diabetes.
For information, visit diabetes.org/stepout or
call 1-888-DIABETES.

On Sunday at the inaugural
.c\ Shanghai Masters, Rory
'5-3 Mcllroy got his first win since
, his historic triumph at the U.S.
Open, by beating Anthony Kim on the first
playoff hole. Mcllroy holed a 2-foot putt for
the victory after Kim missed a 3-footer.
Mcllroy, 22, closed with an even-par 72 to
match Kim (69) at 18-under for 72 holes. "It's
something'that I feel like I can still get better
at, is winning and -putting yourself in the
position to win when you're not playing your
best," said Mcllroy, who entered the round
with a three-stroke lead. Mcllroy earned $2
million with the victory, the richest first place
prize offered by a golf tournament.


., If you have ever watched a tournament on television: you will almost always see a
particular "stunt" performed'once during the coverage. A player will get ready to
make his drive/iron shot/putt and then stop as a menacing insect has interrupted the
Z! procedure. While insects are quite prevalent through most of the country, this is
usually a trick that the professional is using to break the tension of the moment. For
whatever reason, the pro is not ready to make his/her shot and decides to restart
the motion. What more convenient way'fo do that than to swat the pesky fly out of
the way. For the amateur, we usually do not react the same way. We do not want to back out of
a shot due to fear of embarrassment and go ahead and make a terrible shot. The next time you
don't feel comfortable, just stop and restart your routine and better results will occur.

Amelia Island's a light-tackle destination


A sliding tid' found
migrating schools
of four- to 10-inch
miullet nervously
making a safe harbor along
tlih shallow edg iof an oyster-
bar at Tiger Basin. Shallow
wading birds waited patiently
for niullt to pass within their
strike izn.. CG i '.ii i ..
n' rvutt 1mllt wire blasted
into the calm morning air, rav-
aged by a variety of backwa-
ter spe'ci'es, including sea
trout, redfish and the razor-
sharp t ith of bluefish.
Bob Camp readied his 15-
pound spin tackle casting a
Storm "Chug Bug" to the
shallow side of the feeding
frenzy. Engaging his spinning
'el, Camp began working
thre concave-headed surface
plug slowly over the oyster-
bar towards deeper water.
"Chug, chug, chug," were
the enticing sounds made by
the hard plastic plug.
As Camp raised his rod tip
at boat side and prepared for
a following cast, a large sea
trout engulfed his surface
plug, making a loud smacking
noise. It was game on as
Camp now enjoyed one of
Amelia Island's very best out-
door sports, saltwater light
tackle fishing.
Richard Haines regularly
targets redfish on the fly and
has a special technique when
making long casts with his
eight-weight "Sage" fly rod.
"A long nine-foot leader is
typically used when targeting
redfish," Haines said.
"However, when making long
casts to spooky redfish during
the high and low tides that
Amelia Island is so famous
for, a long leader makes it
very difficult to make a long
cast. Here, I will shorten the
fly leader to a length of six
feet, which really helps make
longer casts."
Amelia Island redfish
schooling in shallow water
are more apt to be spooked
by the fishing boat and fisher-
men on board than a short
length of leader.
Jimmy Stubbs is well
known for winning trout tour-
naments, while tricking
"gator" trout into taking his
artificial lures.
"I believe Amelia Island
has some ofthe best spotted
sea trout fishing in the
Southeast," Stubbs said.


"Sonmt o-f nly
S, best big
trout fishing
comes early
. in thilt' morln-
ing and lat'
in the
evening
when the
light condi-
OUTDOORS ions are low.
Giant trout
/erry Lacoss are more
likely to take
an artificial lure when low
light conditions make it hard
for spooky sea trout to detect
artificial lures.
"During the day when the
light is bright, I will gear
down my fishing lines and
size of my lures when coaxing
big trout to strike."
Stubbs typically fishes for
spotted sea trout with
monofilament fishing lines
testing from four to 10
pounds. While the majority of
local sea trout fishermen that
have never hooked into a true
gator trout, typically fish with
heavy fishing lines testing
over 15-pound test. Gator
trout typically weigh six
pounds and more.
"If I had one tide to fish for
sea trout and redfish, it would
be the last few hours of the
flood tide," Capt. T.D. Lacoss
said. "I try to schedule my
light tackle fishing trips dur-
ing the last few hours of the
flood tide. Trophy-size Amelia
Island trout, flounder and red-
fish that are holding in nearby
deep channels will move up
onto the nearby flats during
the flooding tide.
'The key attraction is
clean water and, more impor-
tantly,.baitfish, including
shrimp, crabs and minnows
that are also moving up into
the clean water column to
feed. Finding the right oyster-
bar or marsh point is key
where both bait fish and
game fish mingle."
In many cases, local
inshore fishermen may spend
just a few minutes fishing a
flood tide ambush point, then
move on to another location if
bait fish are not located.
Inshore fishermen will
find Amelia Island is teem.ing.
with oysterbars, tidal estuar-
ies, bays, docks, sandbars,
marsh points and islands that
all make for perfect game fish
habitat and ambush points.

Rainey to play in all-st<


S...BETH JONES
. INews-Leader


is" *~i~%)5,, 4
I'


Yulee High School senior Kelvin Rainey.


When Kelvin Rainey was invit-
ed to play in a senior all-star game
in Texas in December, he
shrugged it off.
"I didn't really pay attention to
it. I didn't believe them," said
Rainey, 18, a 6-foot-3, 220-pound
Yulee High School football player
who tackles assignments on both
sides of the ball.
When organizers for the Of-
fense-Defense Youth All American
Bowl Game failed to convince
Rainey, they contacted'his coach.
"He never said anything," said
Bobby Ramsay, head football
coach at Yulee. "A long list of
guys who've played in it. Cam
Newton played in it. They're try-
ing to get if up to the level of the
Army game. It's been around 8-9
years.",
Rainey will be able to show-
case his offensive and defensive


ir game ai

talents. "It's a good opportunity to
show people what I can do no
matter what side of the ball I'm
on," said Rainey, who has a verbal
agreement to play on a full ride at
South Carolina next fall.
Rainey's football career could
have ended at the Pop Warner
level.
"When I got to middle school,
I shied away from football,"
Rainey said. "I didn't plan on play-
ing anymore."
Yulee Middle School coach J.T.
Medley was persistent.
"When I met Kelvin in sixth
grade, he was obnoxious and. not
even interested in football," said
Medley, now an assistant coach at
Yulee High School. "I asked him
to come play for me for a year to
try it and the rest is history."
Medley said Rainey deserves
the praise he's receiving now. *
"Kelvin has worked very hard
to get where he's at," Medley
said. "Not just physically but in all


t Cowboys

aspects of his life. He also hasn't
been alone. He's the kid the 'vil-
lage' has raised.
"Many people in the Yulee
community are responsible for
the growth and success of Kelvin.
He may appear intimidating, but
he is a very lovable and likeable
young man."
Medley's persistence paid off.
"He kept asking me to play so I
said I'd give it a shot," Rainey
said. "But I wasn't too good in
middle school. My mechanics
weren't good and I didn't take it
seriously. I just played because
everyone else was.
"But when I got to my ninth-
grade year, I started going to.
camps. People started noticing
me. .
"My dreams were not set on
division one football."
Rainey admits when he put on
that football uniform again in mid-
dle school he never dreamed he'd
be Yulee High School's first divi-


Stadium

sion one football signee.
Rainey looks forward to play-
ing for Steve Spurrier.
"He likes to throw the ball and
he's very precise on what he likes
done," Rainey said. "I went up
there over the summer to do
some workouts with them. The
atmosphere was great: Everyone
knows you up there."
Rainey said he's being targeted
for a tight end hybrid position.
"A guy you can move around,
the guy that can give versatility to
your offense," Rainey said.
But until Rainey dons a
Gamecock uniform, he'll be wear-
ing Hornet green and gold as
Yulee continues its 2011 cam-
paign. Yulee clinched the district,'
title and advanced to the playoffs.
"Everything we do is not just.
for fun," he said. "We do it to get
better."
The all-star game is Dec. 30 at
Cowboys Stadium in Arlington,
Texas.

Rhinos, giraffes and okapis in your backyard -oh my


There is a best kept secret in
Nassau County. Hidden in the piney
woods of Northeast Florida are wild
animals and birds. You would not
expect to see cheetahs, giraffes or a
165-pound cassowary bird in your
own backyard. The White Oak
Conservation Center is located a
short 45-minute drive from Amelia
* Island. As yqu travel north and
approach the state line separating
Florida and its neighbor state
Georgia, you make a turn onto a dirt
road. The dusty road leads you past
a guard gate and into a magical
world where wide open enclosures
house wild animals that include rhi-
noceros, okapi, zebras, cheetahs and
* antelope of all types and sizes.
White Oak was created by an .
eccentric but brilliant man, Howard
Gilman, who had passion and com-
mitment to those things he loved.


His passions
included both the
arts and endan-
S -''. gered wild animals
T, of the world.
Gilman's family
business owned the
extensive acreage
that offered an
ideal environment
FROM for many species of
THE animals. The pro-

Dickie through his founda-
Anderson tion.
Anderson White Oak
Conservation Center is considered ,
one of the world's premier wildlife
breeding, research and training facil-
ities. It comprises 600 acres with a
total of 6,800 acres of piney woods


surrounding it. Currently there are
250 individual animals and 20 differ-
ent species represented. Surprising
to many, the habitat and environ-
ment of Northeast Florida offer an
ideal place for many species to live
and breed successfully.
As co-founder of the White Oak,
Conservation Center, John Lukas
remains the director at White Oak
and insures that it remains a world
premier facility for wildlife breeding
and research on endangered
species. He also directs the nonprof-
it arm of the center, which links the
staff and managed animal programs
of White Oak with international part-
ners to conserve flagship species in
the .wild. .
Lukas has been active .in interna-
tional conservation for over 25
years. He founded the Okapi
Conservation Project in 1987. He is


also a co-founder and serves'as a
board member of the Wildlife
Conservation Network and is presi-
dent of the International Rhino
Foundation.
In past years it has been difficult
to visit White Oak, but currently
new opportunities are available by
prior arrangement. Adapting to visit-
ing guests, White Oak has open trol-
leys that take visitors around the
amazing facility. Some groups enjoy
lunch at the riverside pavilion or the
Big Game' Room at the conference
center. As the trolleys make their
way through the piney forest, you

View stained glass restoration Nov. 19


SUBMITTED
The restored stained glass windows
of Trinity United Methodist Church
are the focus of a Friends of the
library program Nov. 19 at the
church.


During restoration of the Trinity United
Methodist Church in 2000, plywood cov-
ering the damaged stained windows was
removed and each window was individually
refurbished by Creative Glassworks.
Each stained glass panel had at least
50 pieces held in place with lead that had
become warped over the years due to age,
pollution, vibration and breakage from
Hurricane Dora in 1964. The window
restoration goal was not to recreate the
look when new, but rather to repair and con-
serve what was already in place.
Glass artist Kirk Reber is the director of
Creative Glassworks, which won the
Preservation Excellence Award from the
Florida Trust for Historic Preservation for
its work at Trinity UMC. Reber noted,
"Living in a nation in existence only'224
years, we have a responsibility to preserve,
that which is important to us culturally and
to respect the artistry and craftsmanship of
those who preceded us."


If you missed previous chances to view
the restoration, Trinity UMC at 715Ash St.
(corner of Ash and Eighth) will be open on
Saturday, Nov. 19 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. for
people to view the restored vintage stained
glass windows "in the light of day."
In addition, Ron Kurtz will be at the
church at noon as docent to answer ques-
tions. Kurtz is an author of a popular history
of Amelia Island and a series of children's
books and sits on the Friends of the
Fernandina Beach Library board. This
opportunity to view the restoration is free
and open to the public.
Friends of the Fernandina Beach
Library is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit corporation
whose main mission is two-fold to pro-
mote literacy and life-long learning and to
advocate and raise funds for the library.
