Diplomacy,

safety vie at

county fair
., GARRETT PELICAN -
News-Leader '
Nassau County Commissioners
admonished two county employees
during a monthly status update on
building department activities.
Commissioners chided Building
Department Director Robert
McKinney and Facilities Maintenance
Director Tim Milligan for their con-
duct Oct 12 at the Northeast Florida
Fairgrounds in Callahan.
Commission Chair Walter Boatright
criticized McKinney for using sub-
standard diplomacy in reference to.
safety issues presented by a tempo-
rary stage built for the Northeast
Florida Fair.
"I knowyou took on extra duties as
code enforcement and building depart-
ment director, so would you say you're
a pretty busy guy,, right Mr,.
MclKinrney?" he asked initially.
Some days. McKinney said, are
busier than others
Then Boatright posed a series of
questions He repeatedly asked
McKinney to con fi r ni that he had left
his office around 3:30 p.m. Oct. 12 to
inv estigate the saf.rt' of the stage
SMcKirnley said Milligan asked him
to investigate and he obliged.
"You left from over here and drove
over at 3:30 in the
afternoon, or what-
ever time it was, to
Callahan to check
on this dangerous
stage at the multi-
purpose building?"
Boatright asked.
"Well, last
Boatright month one of these"
7 ._ .. temporary stages
collapsed in Indiana
..." McKinney started to say before the
commission chair interrupted him.
"I'm not worried about -I didn't
ask you about Indiana, Mr. McKinney,"
Boatright said.
(The collapse of a temporary stage
at the Indiana State. Faith in Ahgust
killed six people and injured dozens.)
The actions of McKinney and
Milligan, Boatright contended, set a
precedent the two department heads
should inspect first-hand every build-
ing the county tents in the future.
"There could be some bad potato
salad at that senior citizens' dinner'out
in Bryceville or something like that
that could hurt somebody," he said.
Then he directed County Manager
Ted Selby, McKinney and Milligan's
immediate supervisor, to explore the
option of enrolling the pair in diplo-
macy classes. McKinney and Milligan
work under the direct supervision of
the county manager, who serves at the
direction and pleasure of the commis-
sion.
Boatright then revealed that he had
received a number of complaints from
fair attendees concerning the Oct. 12
incident.
Commissioners Danny Leeper and
Barry Holloway said they. too had
received complaints.
"Just for the record, I received a
number of calls too how that situation
was handled and it wasn't too pleas-
ing, so I hope we can correct the situ-
ation," said Leeper.
County, records indicated that
McKinney and Milligan'conducted an
inspection of the stage Oct. 12 and dis-
covered several safety violations.
McKinney wrote in an Oct. J3 email
to Selby, "Yesterday, Tim and I made a
quick inspection of the unpermitted
/ stage in the multi-use building. I found
the framing and decking were inade-,
quate, there were no hand railings,
there was no vertical accessibility

Association) and the (Florida Building

issue not dead'


MICHAEL PARNE1.L
News (.euder
'Fernandina Beach Commission-
ers will not consider until 2012 a
revised proposal to remove trees that
pose obstructions to planes landing at
the city airport.
City Manager Michael Czymbor,
told commissioners a new plan to be
brought back after the first 9f the
year may, incorporate new inspec-
tions by the Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA)- and Florida
Department of Transportation
(FDO'") and could involve GIS map-
ping to get exact measurements of
tree sizes to help determine ."
what the options are.
Czymbor wrote in an
email copied to commis-
sioners Monday that the city
now hopes to get the FAA to
pay for removing trees. "We
recently' met with the FAA
on funding of future capital
improvement projects, and Czymb
we are hopeful of a signifi-
cant appropriation to
Runway 422 aswell as an appropria-
tion for the tree mapping and dealing
with obstructions, if needed," he
wrote.
Residents in neighborhoods near
the airport have expressed concern
about the tree cutting. New Airport
Advisory Commission member Sam
Lane and his wife Judith wrote an
email Saturday to neighbors "to let
everyone know that the 'airport trees'
issue is not dead. ... The Airport
Advisory Commission said that they
would not review the revised plan
whenever it comes out, but that it
will go directly to the city commis-
sioners. That means that the public
might not have an opportunity to see
the plan, assess its impact and deter-
mine whether it is acceptable until
the night the city commissioners vote
on it."
If the city obtains federal funding
to pay for tree removal, the Lanes
wrote, "That means we can't depend
on limited city funding to restrict the
'number of removed trees."
The city's original proposal, con-
sidered by the Airport Advisory
Commission in August, identified
10,084 trees on 188 acres of city prop-
erty that could be cut to bring in
$92,000 after being sold as pulpwood.
Replanting of smaller tree species
would have replaced the trees cut
and reduced the Income to the city.
That proposal prompted neigh-
bors to revolt and Czymbor to reject
it. He said categorically that no trees


o


would be cut on private, property and
the city would I evis' the "prelimi-
nary" plan to limit the number of
trees removed on airport property,
nearby city recreation land and in the
rights of way in surrounding neigh-
borhoods
The city manager said a workshop
would be scheduled within 60 days,
but that time period has elapsed.
Czymbor told commissioners that a
workshop instead would be sched-
uled in early 2012 "- in other words,
until after the election of two city com-
missioners" on Tuesday, the Lanes
wrote in their email.
Commissioners have been dubi-
- ous about the proposal from
the outset. Commissioner
JeffreyBunch questioned it
in an email to Czymbor.on
May 10 when it first
appeared on an agenda of
the Airport Advisory
Commission. "If trees are
encroaching on runway
r approaches, then someone
is not managing the airport
-correctly as they should have
been trimmed long before they
became a nuisance," Bunch wrote
Czymbor on May 11.
Czymbor replied on May 12, "We
are in the preliminary stages of inves-
tigating the merits of this proposal.
... If there is no overall benefit to the
city from the proposal, we will not
bring it forward for your considera-
tion."
The city manager authorized
Airport Manager Richard Johnson to
proceed and The Forestry Co. was
contacted before the end of May to do
a tree survey. From the beginning
the proposal was based on the prem-
ise that the city could benefit finan-
cially.
That notion first surfaced-publicly
in late June when the News-Leader
'reported that the proposed city budg-
et contained nearly $100,000 in rev-
enue from tree removal on city recre-
ation property off Simmons Road.
That prompted complaints to com-
missioners from local residents con-
cerned about the effects on wildlife
and property values.
Commissioners said the issue was
overblown by the newspaper report
Commissioner Arlene Filkoff wrote in
an email to a constituent July 4, "The
discussion we had referred to a con-
sultant brought in by the airport who
indicated that we might be required,
for public safety, to cut SOME trees.
The discussion was very high level

Dredge spoils



will be dumped



at multiple sites


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader


A city marina dredging project
approved Tuesday by city commis-
sioners will go ahead as planned,.
with one change: instead of being
dumped at fields of the Fernandina
Beach Municipal Airport, the dredge-
spoils will be unloaded at several
other potential locations around the
city.
According to( City Project
Manager Glenrn Semanisin, the proj-
ect was modified because the Federal
Aviation Administration had con-
cerns that the dredge spoils could
attract birds at the airport. Birds are
a safety hazard to airplanes taking
off and landing.
The dredge contract was award-
ed to Pars Construction Services of
Jacksonville, to bring up 14,000 cubic
yards of silt from the bottom of"
Fernandina Harbor Marina. As the
lowest qualified bidder, the contrac-
tor was to be paid $379,119.,
According to City Manager
Michael Czymbor, the city may pay
Pars Construction less than the bid
amount because the sites where the
spoils are to be dumped are closer
than the city airport
At present the plan is to haul the
spoils to several areas within the city
and let them dry out for a few
months. Those areas could include
the city public works yard at the end
of Lime Street; a site at Division and
Franklin streets near the RockTenn
mill north of downtown; and a one-
acre triangle of property at the city
waterfront that the city plan stopur-
..ha.e from Riavonier for both
stole mnvwatr i'tctiition and'dredge
spoils.
According to Czymbor, the city


'It stinks. It smells.'
JEFFREY BUNCH
COMMISSIONER


is also negotiating with private prop-
erty owners about leasing their land
as a spoil site on a short-term basis.
Czymbor noted the city would
maintain the dredge spoil sites until
a determination is made as to where
to spread the material after it is dried.
There are several places within the-
city, he said, that could use the mate-
rial as fill.
Commissioner Jeffrey Bunch said
at the meeting he had concerns over
having the dredge spoils -dumped
around the city.
"We were told it was going to the
airport," Bunch said. "Now it's going
all over the city. It stinks, it smells "
Bunch also noted that when dredge
spoils were previously hauled out by
truck, the fire department had to
hose down the roads after the mate-
tial dripped out of the trucks. .
According to Semanisin, money
will be left over from the dredging
project to hire a trucking company to,
carry the dried-out spoils to a per-
manent location, or the city may use
its own trucks to haul the material.,
The dredging contract requires
the work to be done by March 14. A
grant from the Florida Inland
Navigation District will also provide
up to $174,735 to complete Ihe proj-
ect.
City officials agreed in March to
lower ihe rent for \lestrec. the com-

Polls will be open 7 a.m. to 7p.m.
Tuesday as Fernandina Beach voters
select two city commissioners.
Voters also will cast an advisory
vote for a new mayor and rule on pro-
posed changes to the City Charter.
I Incumbents Eric Childers and
Susan Hardee Steger seek reelection
to a second three-year term on the
city commission.
Charles Corbett opposes Steger
and John Campbell Elwell and Sarah
Pelican are running against Childers.
If no one receives a majority in that
race, a runoff election is scheduled
for Dec. 13.
The other three commissioners'
seats are not up for election until 2012
or 2013. Thus they are eligible to be
on a straw ballot for mayor. By cus-
tom, the commission chooses' the
winner of the straw ballot to be the
mayor for a one-year term.
Commissioners Jeffrey Bunch and
Arlene Filkoff are vying to become'
mayor. Vice Mayor Tim Poynter
chose not to place his name on the
ballot.
The 10 City Charter changes are
all housekeeping, resulting from a
charter review committee that report-
ed a host of proposed changes to the
commission a few years back. Voters
have been dealing with the various
changes on the last three election
ballots.
This is the first city election in
November since the commission
voted to move it to encourage higher
voter turnout. City elections have

Whyremove trees?
'Apparently there have been some years of neglect to -
attend to this maintenance problem," said Don Curtis, owner
of The Forestry Co of Perry, which prepared a timber esti-
mate report for the local airport manager.
The Forestry Co. manages 8,000 acres of timber at three
airports in Duval County: Jacksonville International, Hurlong
and Craig 'This is such a routine part of their program,"
Curtis said
Had it been a routine program for the local airport, there
likely would be less flak about it now, he suggested.
"Trees are a renewable resource ... we'll replace many
more trees than we would cut," Curtis said In an interview in
September
I'm a loresier." he added, noting his company plants 2
million trees each year
Replanting with cedars and other slower-growing species
would "mitigate the visual effect" of the cut and assure air-
plane safety. 'It would be years and years before you ever
have to tnm them," he said
By contrast, Curtis said if the city wished to selectively trim
the tallest trees it could cost "several hundred thousand dol-
lars.'
The most valuable trees are on city recreation land
that lies south of a Simmons Road neighborhood *The
bulk of the timber value fell on those approaches to the
runway particularly on the city-owned property," Curtis
said.
The company surveyed property surrounding the
airport runways and identified the two tallest trees at
each of 23 points, ranging in height from 28 feet to 82 feet.
"Those pines are growing 2-3 feet a year in height," Curtis
noted
The report was prepared this summer at the request of
Airport Manager Richard Johnson, "who asked if there was a
way to have a commercial harvest" to solve the safety issue
at no cost to the city, Curtis said. ,
'It's a practical thing," Curtis said "It really is driven by
pilot safety and by (trying to avoid) tax expenditures."

'Classwarfae'
.. The ilea s-Le3de' published a story Aug. 25 summarizing
residential concerns about a proposal to remove trees at the
city airport and quoting City Manager Michael Czymbor's
decision to delay a city commission workshop on the matter
tor 60 days
The newspaper was subsequently criticized by Airport
Advisory Commission Chair Mickey Baity in an email Aug. 28
to Czymbor The newspaper report had suggested that
expansion ol non-instrument approaches at city runways pro-
vided not only safer conditions for pilots but might enhance
the ability of larger corporate charter jets serving island
resorts to land at the city airport
Baity told Czymbor that suggestion was "objectionable,
inflammatory and only serves to promote class warfare."
He also called descriptions of the nearby city land zoned '
recreation as "misleading at best .. (it) may be 'zoned'
recreational but as it exists it is far from a 'recreation area
which I would interpret to be a park of some kind. How many
people do you suppose go for walks in those woods? . In
fact with the revenue from the tree harvest. the property
could actually be made into a nature park that more people
could make use of than currently do"
Barty called 'selective thinning" of trees an unaffordable
financial option and defended proposed new capabilities for
runways 'When property owners near an airport start to dic-
tate aviation operations to that extent, it Is the beginning of
the end for a small general aviation airport like ours," he
wrote the city manager
In a separate email to Commissioner Eric Childers. Baity
said there are no plans to make the city airport "a regional air-
port" like that in S1 Augustine. The local airport has corporate
lets, both chartered and privately owned, landing here now,
he noted
Baity addressed airport landing safety requirements
specifically in that email and ended. "I want to make our air-
port as safe and successful as possible, to the benefit of both
those who make direct use of it, and the community.as a
whole"

and really didn't go very far
because we do not have the
information we need such as 1)
are we really required to cut
anything? 2) we would need a
forestry trained individual to
work with us on taking any such
requirement into consideration
prior to touching any trees.
What I believe we said was IF
we had to cut trees, we should
consider trying to sell the tim-
ber. Unfortunately, the context
of a discussion is often lost
when it goes to print. I do not
believe that anyone on the cur-
rent commission is interested in
denuding any land."
I "Johnson acknowledged the
commissioners' concerns in an
email to Czymbor on July 6, but
wrote, "I plan to move forward
to at least understand, what the
problem is and what may be the
alternatives. Then an intelligent
decision can be made based on
the situation."
The Forestry .Co. complet-
ed its stqdy in early summer.

reminded Czymbor that his pri-
mary interest was airplane safe-
ty. "Safety is paramount," he
wrote in an email, elaborating
on the need to remove trees
and provide additional non-
instrument approaches to run--
ways at the airport.
S "Finally, a word about the
trees," Johnson wrote. "There
are two. types of trees.
Hardwoods that have aesthetic
value but no commercial value,
Therefore a hardwood tree
would not be removed or
trimmed unless it was an iden-
tified safety issue. Pine trees
have no aesthetic value but pro-
vide commercial value and in
Some cases in addition to safe-
ty reasons should be cpnsid-
ered for removal to provide rev-
enue to fund safety issues with
trees that have no commercial
value. Any tree can be danger-
ous, especially pine trees, in
weather situations."
Johnson suggested delaying
a city commission workshop to
explore options and Czymbor
agreed. The city manager

FREE "LIVING TRUST" SEMINAR
. *Find out how you may be able to

Transfer your Estate to Your Family Quickly Without
Probate Fees & Minimum Estate Taxes


If you own a home... or have assets worth at least
$100,000... you owe it to yourself- and your family -
to get the facts on. living trusts. If you think you are
protected with a simple Will ... think again ... In many
cases a Will guarantees your estate will go through
probate, which means your family will not be able to
take possession of your estate for many months or even
years!

Plus, if your entire estate, which includes life insurance
and retirement plus,'is over $1,000,000 in 2013, your
family may owe estate taxes which could amount to

41-55% of the value of your estate. This means that
your family may have to sell some assets just to pay the
estate taxes!

A living trust can eliminate probate and minimize estate
taxes. Plus, a living trust may protect your estate if you
-become incapacitated during your lifetime by avoiding a
guardianship. This means your estate may be managed
as you see fit, not as a court-appointed guardian sees fit.

voting rights
U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson (D-
Fla.) took to the Senate floor
to reiterate his call for a con-
gressional investigation of the
new voting laws that came
about this year in Florida and
13 other states. Nelson wants
the House Judiciary Subcom-
mittee on the Constitution,
Civil Rights and Human
Rights to determine whether
these new laws are part of an
orchestrated effort to disen-
franchise voters.
"No state should have the
right to make a law if it
abridges people's basic ,
rights," Nelson said in his
speech before the Senate.
A recent study conducted
by The Breninan Center for
Justice at New York Univer-
-sity School of Law found that
the new laws could make it
harder for more than 5 million
eligible voters in numerous
states to vote in, 2012.


Auto credit valve open wider


As I have suggested
before, credit is the driver of
the modern world. What is
attracting more press than
our national debt or Europe's'
credit challenges? A lot of' ,
people want to compare fiscal-
ly responsible households
with governments' ability to
follow a similar course,
Makes sense to me.
Consumer spending drives
the U.S. economy and, right
or wrong, is driven by bor-
rowing. Auto sales in particu-
lar are heavily influenced by
credit terms.
Right now there is a per-
feet storm for those 80 per-
cent of consumers who
finance their vehicles. Rates
Share at unheardof low APR's in
my 36 years of selling vehi-
cles. One lender had a week-
end special this past week for
1.79 APR on new andone-
year-old used cars. Granted, it
was for 740 and over beacons,
of which there are many. The

Want some scam with those eggs?


Wow! I don't know what I did to be so
blessed but the tiny African nation of The
Republic of Benin has picked me out of the, as
of this week, other seven billion inhabitants of
this planet to receive a onetime windfall of $2.7
million. Cold, hard coin of Uncle Sam's realm
sits in a Benian bank awaiting transfer to me
via Western Union.
The first installment of $5,000 has
already been sent to me through Western
Union and I'm spending it already, even
though I haven't seen a dime of it, mind you.
But I'm sure it'll be arriving any time now
because it has been decreed so by a nice
gentleman and, I'm sure, well-heeled Benian-
businessman or banker named Clement
Johnson, Esq.
See, we Americans have forgotten the fine
art of writing polite and formal letters. We're
too busy saying things like "Yo, CU 4-ish" on
our iPads. The Benians obviously are still
schooled by fussy, ruler-wielding nuns. I was
totally impressed totally impressed by Mr.
Johnson's salutation in his proposal letter, to
me.
"Hello Dear," he writes. "How are you
today? I write to inform you that we have.
already sent you $5,000, U.S., through
Western Union, as we have been given the
. mandate to transfer your full compensation
payment total sum of $2.7 million, vialWestern
Union, by this government."
Omigod what pretty words! We're in the
money!
And to what do I owe my good fortune? I
have no idea, except possibly. my intimate and
professional relationship with one Mr> .


Clement Johnson, Esq., lately
of the Republic of Benin.
That or possibly another
esteemed gentleman and
associate of his mentioned in
his missive, one Sir Peter
Sam. Or was it Sam Peter? I
forget He's apparently the
Director of Operations of this
international conglomerate of
CUP OF hugely wealthy and generous
JOE, souls, which is posted in a
country roughly the size of
Callahan and Hilliard. Well,
Joe Palmer 'OK, maybe also Rhode
Island, which always seems,
to get mentioned as an obscure Lilliputian unit
of measurement.
I gather that because his name bears the
formal 'Sir" as its precedent, Sir Peter or Sir
Sam, whichever the case may be, is of royal
blood. I've never met or had correspondence
or experience with a royal of any kind before
except for an unhappy Navy division officer
who once fumed that I was a royal pain in.the
tookus because I accidentally ground up
kitchen matchheads in his pipe tobacco. But I
digress. '
Although the first bundle of money is
assuredly on its way to me by that trusty carri-
er of massive sums of currency, Western
Union, it would appear that retrieving the bal-
ance of my fortune won't be as simple. There .
appears to be a rather complicated mathemati-
cal formula involved utilizing my bank account
and credit card information, a very lengthy
telephone number presumably to the posh


estate of Mssr. Peter or Sam and a transfer fee
of $195.
I almost blew the whole deal a week
or so back when my computer modem
perplexitator decided to go AWOL for
nearly a week. I'm still trying to figure out
what a perplexitator is. Maybe I'm spelling it
wrong.
Fortunately for me, Sir Sam or Sir Peter or
whoever didn't give up on me, as evidenced by
the communique from Hello Dear, How are
you today Mr. Clement Johnson, Esq. So I sup-
pose all is forgiven, otherwise they wouldn't
have elected me to be the recipient of their
country's fortune, I can't figure out exactly
why the Republic ofBenin decided to favor me
with these glad tidings but I'm sure glad they
did, especially with Christmas being right
around the corner.
I tried calling that 14-digit telephone rium-
ber this afternoon but I must've done some-
thing wronrg. An irate sounding woman
answered the telephone and screamed at me
in heavily accented Benianese and rudely
hung up. I tried calling back to apologize but
she fired a starter pistol in the vicinity of the
phone and my ears h4ve been ringing all day
long. I was going to call a third time and give
her a piece of my mind but my ears were ring-
ing so loudly I couldn'thear myself think of
anything clever to say to her so I abandoned
the idea.
I'm going to get up bright and early tomor-
row and go to the Western Union office and
see if the check arrived. Say, you don't think
this could be a scam, do you?

Inevitable change -
Siwa, Egypt and Fernandtna Beach
don't exactly have a lot in common,
but a developer there had some words
of wisdom that we would be well-
advised to keep in mind when voting
on Tuesday: "Change is inevitable.
What is important is for people to make
good judgments about what should b6
changed and what should be pre-
served." Fernandina has lifelong resi-


Be positive
Too much criticism of the city com-
missioners in recent weeks upsets me,
mostly because people aren't happy
with the $6 million strategic plan and
other decisions that the commissioners
made. These times are very difficult -
the economic hard times, people losing
homes by foreclosures and lost jobs.
Some candidates have said- city
departments need to be trimmed. The
entire city staff and employees do a
pretty good job, and right now the city
is working on changes in how the
departments will operate in the future.
Our city is blessed; we have gotten
here in pretty good shape. We have a
larger-tourist business than most cities
our size; two major paper mills; two
resort hotels; a historical downtown

and an island of many.charms.
City commissioners are going for-,
ward instead of backwards. Nothing is
accomplished without trying. A diffi-
cult time sometimes brings difficult
decisions. Instead of being negative,
take a positive step and be pro-active.
The waterfront is not only an attrac-
tion for tourists (moneymaker) but for
our citizens who live here. At the pres-,
ent time,-it is an eyesore to this city, and
by putting a park there it does help to
bring the citizens and tourists to shop
at our local businesses. A blighted area
does not attract tourists; it drives them
away. Our Waterfront Committee and
Parks/Recreation Advisory Board
worked on that for several years and
came up a beautiful plan, a park with
some parking to fill the needs of our
city. The groups held open meetings
with our citizens for their views and
comments during the course of work-
ing on the waterfront
More time is needed on decisions'
about the post office and library. These
projects ai-e also tough decisions and
the solutions are yet to be decided. We
believe the library should be fixed in
the meantime and open (as it serves
this community) till we 'look at this
more closely. Why can't the county
,help us?. I agree that the library needs
extraspace and equipment.
,The one area that I thought could
have been handled better Was the light-
ing on the trees downtown but that can
be corrected. How about just hanging
the small lights up again! Maybe vol-
unteers from the downtown merchants'
association can pitch in and put them
up?
Our city will survive but we must
all try and understand what we are fac-
ing, try and be more positive and
patient. A lot of us do try, but an angry
nation is not in the best interest.
John Megna
Fernandina Beach
Gotcha government
Does anyone reallylbelieve that our
city government's first priority is to
serve its citizens?
At the bank the other day I was
confronted by a fellow with the story
of seeking a certificate of occupancy
on a newly constructed residence.
When the building inspector showed
up, he noted that there was one of
those modern, hanging fireplaces. The
contractor pointed out that the fire-
place was on the approved and per-
mitted plans. Not good enough. The
fireplace required a separate permit if
he expected to get a certificate of occu-
pancy. Oh, and since you did not get a
permit that will be a fine of $800.
Gotcha!
With all that money in the project


what choice do you have but to pay?
It's public extortion'. Gotcha!
The city maintains a special'report
of the 400 percent penalties. You -"an
get it by, making a public records
request. I call it the Gotcha Report.'
,There will come a time when:the
money involved is sufficient to. entice
a class action lawsuit That happened,
on the impact fees and will eventually
happen on the 400 percent penalties.
We each have our own experience
and views but my candidates for the
Fernandina Beach Gotcha Hall of'
Fame are (Utility Director) John
Mandrick, (Community Development
'Director) Marshall McCrary, (Building
Official) Bob Sasser, (City Manager)
Mike Czymbor and all the incumbent
commissioners. In the end, the men-
tioned employees all are responsible to
the commissioners who, in my view,
have never held them accountable.

Economic benefits?
Last week I attended four candi-
date forums. A variety of questions.
were asked but the answers were all
the same. The new candidates over
and over again voiced their resistance
to the recently passed 5-year strategic
plan and questioned the revenue
return to the city of the different proj-
ects. At this point in time it appears
that the city colnmission will only fund
the first. element, Waterfront
Park/Front Street, and not move on to
the others until that project is com-
pleted.
Most of us would like the city to
operate with more business-like prin-
ciples. But the city doesn't sell goods
and services-and-doesn't really have a
bottom line and this is where a busi-
ness and government differ. The city's
return on investment or revenue return
is called quality of life.
Most of us who moved to
Fernandina Beach for a reason, the
beach, golfing, the weather or maybe
a job transfer, made' quality of life a
big part of making that decision to
move here.
A few years ago, just before the real
estate bubble burst, the city approved
a Community Redevelopmeft Area
(CRA) and developers were close to
breaking ground on residential devel-
opment within the CRA. At that time it
was estimated that, if the development
went forward, the tax increment financ-
ing (TIF) funds generated by the
increased assessments on the build-
ings would be close to $1.3 million per
year. This money would have been
used to pay for the waterfront park,
the cost of improvements to Front


Street and other capital improvements
within the CRA. With the downturn of
the economy nothing happened and
all that planning is nlow just another.
dream.
.A comment from three people cam-
.paigning for office was, "Now is not
the time" to tax the residents to build
the park and rehab Front Street. When
is the right time? I don't know if there
is a better time than right now.
The historic downtown area is the
heartbeat of Fernandina Beach and it
appears to be suffering severely. In
case you haven't noticed there are five
closed storefronts in the downtown
area. Businesses are hurting because
of lack of traffic. Why? Because Sadler
Road has become the center of the
city's population. A few years ago
Sadler was widened to four lanes, the
auto dealers moved out to ALA.and
commercial development began.
There are now hotels, grocery and
drug stores, banks, restaurants and
close to 15 national tenants which
bring a lot of traffic to the local shops
on Sadler.
Now is the time to rebuild the his-
toric downtown area. Even in today's
economy there are many people who
would live downtown if there were
new homes or condos that didn't have
to be rehabbed like most of the older
homes in the area that are for sale.
Just imagine if we move forward with
the first phase of the strategic plan
and the developers realize that the
city is now open for business. The
developers begin building their resi-
dential housing and dollars start com-
ing into the CRA fund. We will be able
to pay off the loans and, best of all, we
will have added to our quality of life,
which in turn creates more business,
. more jobs and more economic benefits
for Fernandina Beach.

In the driver's seat -well, kind of


The sputtering engine was a
noise my dad had not expected. As a
kid, I was just thrilled to be along for
the ride. Little did I know that run-,
ning out of gas that day would pro-
mote me to the driver's seat well;',
kind of.
Ever since I can remember, my
dad has loved M.G.'s The spunky
engines, great handling and British
design gave my dad just the kind of
outlet a fighter pilot needed at the
end of a long day. For us kids, piling
into that little car, anti just being with
Dad, was a treat none of us will ever
forget; especially when he'd put the
convertible top down.
On the day his little black road-
ster ran out of gas, I moved from
privileged passenger to necessary

partner in order to
get us back home.
Now I'm not ,
sure why. I was the
only kid in the car
that day, but provi-
dence seemed to be
working on my
behalf. Thankfully
* for my dad, the inci-
dent happened
right-in our neigh--
borhooa.
Thankfully for me,.
he- was willing to let
me drive.
As I stood on


the seat and did my best to wrestle.
the steering wheel in the direction
my dad told me to, he pushed from


behind and took the brunt of the
task on himself. Make no mistake,
we were a team. Never in my life had
I felt so important. Never had I real-
ized just how strong my dad really
was..
By the time we made it to our
house, mydad slid around from the
back, grabbed the steering wheel
with one hand and steered us into
the drive'ayv for a per fect landing
When ,jumped out of the car, my
feet wouldn't stay on the ground. I
was now officially a man even .
t though mymom tells me I was
only about years old when the inci-
dent happened. That day I know I
grew at least txwo feet taller; I'm just
sure of it. .
Looking back, I find myself mind-


ful of a few simple truths that
apply to who God is and to my life
today. From things like no longer
just being a privileged pa-ssenger
with God to-becoming a partner
with Him, to learning to steer
only in the direction He tells me to,
my adult experiences with God
are very similar to'those with my
earthly father.
Though it's true, every.now and
ihen God seems to let me steer,
:hings, I know it's only because He
wants to include ni. nriot because he
can't do it Himself Like my dad, He
bears the heavy loads, grabs the
wheel just in time, always makes
things land in the eightt place and,
yes, makes me feel two feet taller
than I know I really am. That's who


God is to mne.
Though nowadays my earthly
father finds himself rolling around in
a wheel chair, and now it'-i my turn to
push him, the example-he set for me
of who God is, is forever ingrained in
my soul. For that, I'm eternally grate-
Sful. Thanks Dad!
"I've carried you since your birth.
I've taken care of you from the time

Beware ofcreeping, spreading, disease carrying garden invaders


.Can you identify this

A .It would have been

brought in a nice section of
the weed along with the blue
flower I was able-make a bet-
ter determination of the plant.
Spreading daynlower,
Commelina diffusa, is com-
monly found in ditches and in
low areas where water might
accumulate. Of course, this
weed can also be found in
landscapes receiving toop

Q I found this weed grow-
.ing in thesoil I had
delivered for my fall garden.
It looks like tiny watermelons
but the leaf looks like a
cucumber. BM
A. I have had three people
A .bring this weed in to me
Within the last two weeks. I.
was fortunate in contacting
Duyal County Commercial,
Extension Agent Erin Harlow
and she was able to identify it
for me immediately.
You most likely have the
weed called creeping cucum-
ber, Melothria pentula. I found
it interesting that most of the
speciren-s of this weed
showed evidence of the dis-
ease powdery'mildew on the
leaves. The leaf de inde-ed
look like a cucumber and the
speckled, melon-like fruit is
"about the size of a pecan.
Ci eeping cucumber also pro-
duces a small yellow flower

    Walk to stop 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 fundrais-
    ing 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.

    Petanque tourney Nov. 12 & 13
    News-Leader
    On the weekend of Nov. 12 and 13, downtown
    Fernandina Beach will look and sound like any
    typical town on the French Mediterranean.
    Over 260 competitors (in teams of two) will be play-
    ing p6tanque (pronounced pay-tonk), the French
    cousin of horseshoes and."bocce," the Italian bowling
    game. Teams are coming from 23 states, Canada and
    Europe to compete in the 2011 P6tanque America Open,
    .a unique international p6tanque tournament held for
    the third year in a row on Amelia Island.
    'Two years ago, hardly anyone on the island had
    ever heard of the game. Now 14 local teams are training
    and eager to compete against the visitors. That's exactly
    what I was hoping for when I first saw the downtown
    waterfront: boats, breeze, sunshine and a huge open
    area. The perfect spot to play p6tanque!" said Philippe
    Boets, president and founder of Petanque America, who
    moved his operation to the island in the summer of
    2009.
    Adds Boets, "The incredible variety of accommoda-
    tions, restaurants and bars within walking distance has
    been a major factor in the steady growth of the event"
    In fact, that is what first drew Boets to Amelia Island.

    SONG Continuedfrom 1B
    Around that same time he
    met Kathy Mattea, a young
    demo singer working as a
    waitress, when her car need-
    ed to be jump-started.. They
    married soon after but chose
    to keep'their professional
    lives separate and be judged
    for their own talents she as
    a recording artist and he as a
    songwriter.
    That all changed in 1989,
    when Vezler wrote
    "Where've You Been," a true
    story about his grandparents.
    When Mattea recorded the
    song it was honored with a
    Grammy Award for "Best
    Country Song" and the
    Nashville Songwriters
    Association's "Song of the
    Year." Vezner was subse-
    quently named "Songwriter of
    the Year" by the NSAI.
    More of Vezner's songs
    recorded by Mattea include
    "A Few Goodi Things
    Remain," "'ime Passes By,"
    "The Innocent Years."

    OUT AND ABOUT


    Vezner's caliber accept invita-
    tions to perform in places like
    Amelia Island, when they've
    played much larger venues
    like Carnegie Hall or the
    Ryman Auditorium in
    Nashville especially when
    they pay their own travel
    expenses with no guaranteed
    income. But "An Evening of
    Story & Song," the popular
    music series hosted by Mark
    and Donna Paz Kaufman and
    sponsored by First Coast
    Community Bank and Mixed
    Media, has developed quite a
    reputation for having support-
    ive audiences, a comfortable
    setting in which to perform
    and for providing artists the
    ability to make new friends
    and fans.
    Another Grammy nomi-
    nee, Gretchen Peters, is
    already set to perform here
    on May 12. When apprecia-
    tive audiences keep showing
    up for these performances,
    the artists will keep on com-
    ing. Who knows who might
    be next?

    About pttanque

    Petanque originated in
    Provence in the early
    1900's as a simplified ver-
    sion of an older outdoor
    bowling game.
    The aim is to toss, or
    roll, a number of hollow
    metal balls bouleses") as
    close as possible to a small
    wooden target ball. Players
    take turns and the team
    that ends up nearest-to the
    target ball when all balls
    are played, wins.
    No special skill Is
    required, seniors can play
    with children, the equip-
    ment is inexpensive. The
    game is simple, fun, relax-
    ing yet competitive, and a
    perfect way to make new
    friends.
    Over the past 20 years
    its popularity has grown
    worldwide, with national
    leagues in 88 countries.

    The water tower models
    were judged on four criteria:
    structural efficiency,
    hydraulic efficiency, cost
    effectiveness, and design
    ingenuity. Tyler Tedcastle,
    competition chairman, spoke
    to the students as he per-
    formed hydraulic and struc-
    tural tests on the models. He

    way to foster more interest in
    engineering projects."'

    ticipate in yearly. We are
    really proud of their efforts,"
