fe s

GARRETT~ PELICAN
Newus Leader

.Due to an ailing economy, Nassau
County Commissioners have voted to
extend the suspension of impact fee
collection by one year star-ting Jan. 1,
and they have asked the school board
and the city of Fernandina Beach to fol-
low suit.
Impact fees are chargfied to devel-
opers and used to help pay for new
growth. The commission fir-st voted
to suspend the fees in June 2008 in an
effort to stimulate the local economy.
The original moratorium was slated
for- sixr months, but the commission
has continued to renew it since then
given the slow economic r-ecover-y.
County Manager Ted Selby said
last week that both the county
Planning & Zoning Board and its
Impact -Fee & Concurrency Task
Force recommended extending the
suspension of fees for six months. The
task force, he added, also urged t-he
board to ask the same of the Nassau
Cottity School Board and Fernandina
Beach.
Both those boards have continued
to collect impact fees for new devel-
opment that impacts their services.
COmmiSsioner Stacy Johnson sug-
gested suspending the fees for one
year instead.

ar-e inhabited by wintering
ducks, grebes, mergansers
and their relatives. Out on our
beaches various shorebirds
also move here in large num-
bers in winter. It s always fun
to watch the large groups of
skimmers that fill the beach
near Sandy Bottoms and fur-
ther north by the Fort Clinch
fishing pier. Please treat these
birds with respect and try flot
to flush them into the air,
which disturbs them and uses
up calories that they have to
make up with extra fishing
trips.
The fun thing about Amelia
Island natur-e is that you never:
know what you will see, be it
winter, summer, spring or fall.
I've tried to give you a few
ideas of what to look for while
I'm gone, but no doubt you
will see many other natural
sights of interest too.

Another opportunity to
count birds in your backyrard
Happens Feb. 17-20. The year-
ly Great Backyard Bird Count
is the largest bird count in
North America. This event
helps scientists learn things,
like how winter weather influ-

with last year's and what kinds
of birds are in cities and rural
areas.

upcoming event, visit bird-

your sights on a yellow-bellied
sapsucker, a migratory wood-
pecker that gets its name
because of the holes it bores
into trees to "suck" the sap out
of the bark.
Or you might see an
American goldfinch or chip-
ping sparrow. Although their
colors are duller in the winter,
gold-finches are still easy to
spot through bare branches
and brown leaves because of
their yellow feathers, black
wings wit h white markings and
cone-shaped bill. The chipping
sparrow is a robust little bird
with a rust-colored "cap" on its
head. It must love to be heard
because it sings loudly from
high, outer limbs of trees.
Chipping sparrows like feed-


ers too, if you have one.
Couqting and viewing birds
Is as easy as walking out your
back door and looking in your
trees, bushes or at your feeder.
Make it a family event.
Things to have handy:
binoculars, bird guides and
checklists to keep track of the
kind of birds you see and how
many you count. If you plan to
be outside for a long period of
time, take a blanket to sit on
and a cup of hot chocolate!

birds are still in your backyard.
Your yard may look gloomy

there are bright spots, or feath-

species of birds are just arriv-

creek~s. These birds are don.
ble the size of our year-round
brown pelicans and quite stun-
ning to see in the wild. These
bir-ds migrate here to spend
their winiers e~saping the
cold of their breeding grounds
in lakes in the northwestern
parts of North Amlerica. If you
are on a boat or looking with
binocullars from shor-e it is
often possible to see these
birds. If you are lucky you
might see them her-ding fish
to the shore, or flying in large
formations.
*Osprey, owl and eagle
nests. Most of you longtime
readers already are familiar
with the goings on at the plat-
form of a utility pole situated
on North 14th Street near the
back gate to Fort Clinch State
Park. Every winter a pair of
osgirey mates often and visibly
on the snags near the pole,
then settles down to take
turns feeding the babies that
result Over the weeks we can
watch the babies get larger
and more visible, and finally in
early spring take their own
soaring lessons nearby.
Sometimes great horned owls
nest on this platform first. Last
year an owl pair nested near
t'he airpdrt for all to watch.
Also last year for the first
time we had a pair of bald
eagles nesting mid-island.
Ther-e's always a lot to' learn
each year about our birds of
prey. I'll miss it this year but
you won't, so please keep me
updated.


How many birds can you count?

their own.
Lisa Buben started a local
chapter because she enjoys
working together with other
professional businesswomen
and felt there was a need in
Fernandina.
"I belong to an amazing
women's networking group in
Jacksonville and felt it was
time to have a great group
here in my own hometown
where we can support each
other locally and contribute to
our community too! Lisa
Presnell has been a great
supporter- and is the ambassa-
dor to our chapter we both
believe in the power of
WOAMTEC!" .


"It is my personal goal to
create a dynamic atmosphere
where you can not only do busi-
ness with our members of our
chapter, but also do business
through them," said Buben.
Each chapter sponsors one
or two local charities and works
hard to be an active, positive
contributor to community
events.
"Our chapter is brand new
so suggestions and charities are
welcome to contact us," said
Buben.

*Don't over react to volatility. In
2011, the financial markets have been
volatile, with big gains followed by big
drops followed by big gains a true
roller-coaster pattern. Try not to let
large, short-term price movements
influence your investment decisions.
Many of the factors that cause jumps
or declines are not that relevant to
long-term results -andl as an investor,
you want to focus on the long term.
Concentrate on building a portfolio
that's suitable for your individual goals
and risk tolerance. .
*Be aware of different types of
risk. For many investors, "investment
risk" strictly means the possibility of .
losing principal when the value of an
investment drops. Consequently, to
cut back on their risk in the face of a
volatile market, they may sell off
stocks and load up on certificates of
deposit (CDs), bonds and other so-
called "safer" investments. But each
investment actually carries its own
type of risk. For example, if you own
CDs that pay a 2 percent return, and
the inflation rate is 3 percent, you will
lose purchasing power over time. And
if you wanted to sell your bonds before

What types offtinancialrIesolutions
might one consider?
*Contr-ibutec mor-e to your retire-.
ment accounts. Anew year- means that
you are o~ne year- closer- to retirement.
To help yourself build resour-ces for
th~e lifestyle you've envisioned as a
r-etiree, try to boost yo~ur contributions
to your 401(k) or- other- employer-spon-

if you get a salar y incr-ease and devote
at least part of it to your 401(k). At

up to $5,000 to an IRA, or $6,000 if
you're 50 or older.
*Reduce your debts. Look for
ways to cut down or consolidate your
debts.
It may not be easy, but it's worth
the effort because the lower- your debt
load, the more money you'll have avail-
able to invest for the future.
*Build an emergency fund. If you
don't already have an emergency fund
containing between six and 12 months'

ing one soon. Keep the money in a
liquid vehicle one that's separate
from your everyday checking and say-

TIhe tourism industry on
Amelia Island continued to
recover from the "Great Reces
sion" during the 2011 fiscal
year, generating more than
$331 million in economic
impact in Florida's Nassau
County, according to a study
conducted by the Amelia
Island T`ourist Development
Council.
TIhe study found the island
hosted more than 432,000
overnight guests in the 12-
month period ending Se~ptem-
ber. Spending at tourism-relat-

increased 5.4 percent from the
previous year, accounting for
36: percent of taxable sales in
the county.
"We're certainly not back
to pre-re'cession levels yet, but
are clearly headed in the right
direction," said Gil Langley,
managing director of the
AITDC. "This mar-ks the sec-
ond consecutive year we've
seen increases in both demand
and revenue on the island. Our
challenge in the coming year is
to keep growing in the face of
more robust competition for
visitors' attention and dollars."
Smith Tr'lavel Rlesearch, a
pleading lodging resear-ch corn-
pany, reportedly that hotel occu-
pancy, rate and revenue all
improved on A~melia Islandl in
fiscal 2010-11. The revenue per
available room, the most com-
mon indicator of a healthy
lodging industry, increased by
6.9 per-cent on island last year.
The total number of rooms
sold by hotels on the island
increased 3.5 percent, while
revenue fr-om r~oom sales
improved 6.4 per-cent.
"As sales have improved,
the tr-avel industry has been
adding back jobs lost in pr-evi-
ous years," Langley noted.
"Almost 4,000 people ar-e


employed by tr-avel-related
businesses that's; nearly '22
percent of the .Nassau Coulnty
workfor-ce.
"Nassau County is much
more dependent on tourism
than the average county in
Florida," said County
Commissioner Dan ny Le~eper,
who serves as chairman of the
A41ITDC. "Tlour-ist spending
statewide makes up about 22
percent of taxable sales, while
here the number is more than
36i percent. The O)mni Amelia
Island Plantation is the largest


more than 1,000 people. One in
five people in the county wor-k
in the travel industry, making
a healthy tourism industry vital
for our- community."
Langley said he expects
gr-owth to moderate in 2012,
but anticipates business to
accelerate in 2013 with the
completion of the O mni Amelia
Island Plantation expansion.
Constr-uction on the expansion
of the resor-t began in Novem-
ber andi will last 18 months.
When completed, the project
will add 155 rooms to the

convention space to more than

*I'm hopeful that both commissions, coun-
ty and city, can come to. an agreement con-
cerning the library's future. I've said many
times a great library is essential to a progres-
sive community. Fernandina B~each is that and
keeping an improved library in our downtown
should be high on the list of both elected bod-
les.
*I'm looking forward, also, to the state rec-

side of a "hometown" agenda.
All of us know that we live in a great coun-
try, state, county and city. My hope for 2012 is
that all of us, regardless of social, political or
economic ideology, will participate in the polit-
ical decision-making process. Voting is nice;
it's a good thing, but I hope we consider work-
ing for a candidate, or issue, attending meet-

more involved in the process and fighting
harder for core values. I see Florldians asking
tough questions, rejecting failed concepts and
demanding a return to quality of life legisla-
tion. I believe we'll witness a commitment to a
quality, improved library in our downtown and
the completion of the city's waterfront all

I don't know what your cognitive traditions
are on New Year's Day, but I like to think
about the year gone by, fondly remembering
the high points, like family trips to the North
Carolina mountains, grandchildren at the

Will they commit themselves, further, to the
ridiculous notions of a $6 million stimulus plan
that, in reality, is no stimulus, and a tax
increase to pay for it? Will Commissioner
Bunch gravitate toward the newly elected
change commissioners, or will he jump over
the barricades and join the status quo folks?
Whichever way Mr. Bunch chooses, it's going
to be great to watch. .

so again. I was so pleased at the prospect of'a

has no clothes, that there are too many discon-

politicians say, then they go to Tallahassee and
cut dollars for public schools and increase dol-

Don't ignore
"Those who cannot remember the past are
condemned to repeat it," wrote philosopher
George Santayana. Americans from
Fernandina to Washiogton are in the process
of making a terrible mistake on economic
issues that ignores lessons from the past.
It seems almost everyone is stating an opin-
lon on economics these days, in emails,
Facebook commentary, blogs, op-eds and let-
ters in newspapers, on radio and television and
in general conversation: Yet few understand
economics because it is difficult to study and,
on the surface at least, is a dull subject. But
that doesn't stop people from talking and writ-
ing on economic issues without the benefit of
knowledge.
Two examples: the ongoing debate over- the
future of "Forward Fernandina" and the obses-
sion with reducing the national debt. Fiscal
conservatives have just won an election that
changes the character of the city's commission.
Newly elected commissioners are bent on stop-
ping the city's development plan so that city
taxpayers aren't dunned an extra $20 or.so a
year. And in Washington, the fiscal conserva-
tives elected in 2010 have been uncompromis-
ing on their demand to shrink the federal budg-
et and reduce the deficit. Both claim these
steps are needed to help the country recover

N EWS- LEADER / FERNAN DlIN B EArCH. FLORI1DA


BET`H IJOW.~
Newrs Leader

it was a H-illiard-Fernan-
dina Beach final for both the:
boys and girls Friday during
the annual Johnny 7: Smith
high school county basketball
tournament in Yulee.
T'he 13-2 H~illiard Lady
FL'.~h. , first-round winners,
58-24, over West Nassau,
soundly defeated the
Fernahndina Lady Pirates 70-
23 in the title game.
"We are extremely proud
to win the first girls county
championship," said Tara
Franklin, head girls basket-
ball coach at Hilliard Middle-
Senior High School, where
she also played basketbalL.
"Being able to win this one
for our community wyas very
exciting. This group of young
ladies stepped up Thursday
and Friday to make sure they
walked away with the title of
county champions."
Hilliard junior Brianti
Saunders was named the
girls' most valuable player.
"Br1ia is our team leader-
and our most selfless player,"
Franklin said. "This young
lady wants to make; everyone
around her better. Bria's tr~ue
gift is not her unbelievable
talent she has on the basket-
ball court; her tr~ue talent is
her ability to teach and men-
tor underclassmen. She truly
is a team player.,
"Seniors Kayla Jones and
Kier-stan Pace along with
eighth-grader Kasha Austin
and sophmore Miriah Dur-
rances had solid play on of-
fense and defense," Franklin
said. "Sophmore Caroline
Cochrane and ninth-graders
Erika Wade, Abbie Dortch,
Emmalee Smith and Haley
Simpkins were able to come
in and give the starters rest
and still command a good
lead." -
In Friday's nightcap, the
Fernandina Beach Pirates (8-
5) Rdged Hilliard 47-45 to
clinch the boys crown.
"It was tight throughout,"
said. Matt Schreiber, Fernan-
dina Beach High Schoolboys
coach. "We knew it would be
tough. We were lucky to get
out of their- with a thr~ee-point
win earlier in the year.
"They'r-e a physical team.
We knew we had to match
their intensity."
The score was knotted 10-
10 after a qluar~ter and the
Pirates were up 20-19 at half-
time and 35-32 after three
quarters. .
Senior- Jor-dan McIntosh
had a pair of double-double
performances in the tourna-
ment. He had 20 points and
20 rebounds against: Hilliar-d
and 15 points and 14
rebounds in Thursday's 46-34
win over- West Nassau. He
was named the tournament's
most valuable player.
"He deserved it. He leads
us in almost every game,"
Schreiber said. "Our seniors,
Jor-dan, Logan Vendola and
Tyler- Somora have given us
as good senior leadership you
can ask for. They are team-
oriented g~uys. It's easy for
the, other guys to join 1-ight in.
"At the halfway point, our
players continue to show up
and play. We have trouble
scoring, but our defense
keeps'us in ballgames. One of
Our goals was to win the
county tournament so we
wer~e pleased with that."
West Nassau beat Yulee in
both consolation games
Friday night.

Skip Swain
teamed up to
win the 25th
annual NSFA
Trout
Tournament,
which
included a
7.1-pound
OUTDOORSspotted sea
OUTDOORStrout.
-...-Karl
TerylaossMrozek was
Terr~acos~crowned
Nassau Spor't Fishing
Association's angler of the
year.
Al Nelson and the "Long
Haul" fishing team topped all
competitors during the annu-
al Amelia Island Blue Water
Tour-nament while releasing a
beautiful l50-pound blue mar-

lnRyan Conner's "'Backwater
Tournament for Autism" col-
lected some $4,000 for the
disease that affects many
young children. Billy Allen
topped all competitors in the
18th annual Knox Wyatt trout
Tournament, in which redfish'
showed up for the big fishing
par~ty.
While offshore species of
gamefish wer-e put off limits
during the 2011 fishing sea-
son by the South Atlantic
Fishery Services, the Florida
Wildlife Commission opened
fishing seasons and increased
bag limits. Beginning Feb. 1
in Northeast Florida waters,
the trout season will be open
with a new bag limit of six sea
trout and two redfish per
angler. Redfish and sea trout
continued to highlight the
Amelia Island fishing scene
during 2011.
Big swamp fires last sum-
mer produced a record crop
of bothi deer and bear for area
outdoorsmen that hunted in
Georgia woods.
"We had a terrific beltr
hunting season," Tony
Peeples said. "John Waltower
harvested a 425-pound black
bear while several other big
bear were taken by members
of the Big Swamp Hunt Club.
I believe the fires this past
.sumzmer in the swamps
forced many of the bear, deer
and game to higher ground,
which made hunting this fall
special. In fact, the Georgia
black bear record was broken
twice in just a few days."
Florida's Bo Woods har-
vested a 600-pound black bear
Oct. 1, two days after a 598-
pound black` bear was har-
vested. Woods' black bear is
now the newl Georgia state
record black bear.
Several large whitetail
deer were also harvested
from the Nassau Wildlife
Management Area.
The big outdoor disap-
pointment in 2011 was the
lack of king mackerel and the
continued closures for saltwa-
ter bottom fish species. On
the bright side, backwater,
jetty, beach and blue water
fishing continued to showcase
Amelia Island Sport fishing.


season left many
avid Northeast
Flori011ouda -ordoutdoors-
men with mixed feelings, par-
ticularly when deep sea fish-
ing was on the agenda.
The National Marine
Atmospheric Administration
continued the ban on red
snapper- during the 2011 fish-
ing season and eventually
closed the harvesting of black
sea bass Oct. 17. The National
Marine Fishery Service for
the South Atlantic Fishery
said that the quota for black
sea bass had been met. The
black sea bass season will
reopen June 1.
"What is really frustrating
is that our government is.
closing th.e fishing seasons
for several species of game
Fish all at the same time,"
Capt. Allen Mills said. "Alot
of charter boats, recreational
fishermen and related busi-
nesses are economically dev.
stated by the closures,
"I agree that we need to
manage our saltwater game
fish, but closing the seasons
for several major species of
game fish at the same time is
not the right solution for good
management."
The 2011 fishing season
also saw one of the worst
migrations of Atlantic king
mackerel for many lishing
seasons. Knowledgeable salt-
water fishermen believed that
the commercial pressure on
king mackerel that onde tar-
geted red snapper was a big
part of the poor kingfish
migration in Northeast
Florida waters.
Local offshore angler
Kenny Crawvford and team
"Crawfish" did manage a fan-
tastic kingfish season though
by winning the St. Augustine,
Jacksonville Fishing Rodeo
and the Fernandina Beach
Fishing Re'deo during the
2011 kingfish season. All
were Sotithern Kingfish
Association-sanctioned
events, which eventually p it
Steam "Crawfish" on top of'
SDivision V for back-to-back
Victories. .-
The gag grouper fisher~yis
closed through May 1; the ,
black sea bass season closed
Oct. 17 and will reopen June
1; and th'e red snapper season
is closed indefinitely. For
information dri the South
Atlantic Fisheryr and NOAA,
visit wwwn~.nmfs~noaa.gov.
The Nassau Sport Fishing
Association saw the decline in
kingfish for the 2011 fighting
season and moved its event
from the first-week of June to
first week ofAugtist, aLSo
changing the event from an
all-king'fish event'to a fishing
rodeo. The all-new format
turned out t6 be a huge suc-
c~ss.
SThe NSFA also enjoyed an
excellent black drum tourna-
ment. Fourteen-year-old
Jacob Jones was the big win-
ner with his 85.68-pound
black drtim. Justin Paulk and


TERRY LACOSS/SPECIAL
Bill and Courtney Fassbender celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary recently while enjoying some of Amelia
Island's best backcountry fishing for big sea trout. Spotted sea trout continued to be one ofAmelia Island's favorite
game fish during the 2011 fishing season.


.Jennyl? Higgins and Rusc
Boyer, above, fished in
Christopher Creek recently
and landed this pair of
perfect 27-inch redfish.
Redfish continued to be
the No. 1 targeted game
fish for Amelia Island
wasters during the 2011
fishing season. Right, Scott
Hood recently harvested
this beautiful eight-point
whitetail deer with his 12-
gauge shotgun at Doe Bay
Hunt Club in Folkston,
Ga. Hood says hunting
was excellent during the
2011 hunting season with
a lot of mature bucks
taken at his hunt club.

and watch the political debates.
They take advantage of -meet the

ation for would-be nominees for
president of the Unitedi States -
January in lowal.
Even before lowa became a state
in 1846G, ther-e was a for-m of caucus.
Tr-ue to their- heartland values, the
pioneer-s of the Iowa constitution
chose caucuses rather- than a pr-i-
mary to nominate candidates, pr-efer-
ring the gr-ass-roots democracy-in-
action approach.
After gathering in a convenient
neighbor-hood meeting place, often a
school, participants divide into
groups supporting specific candi-
dates. If a candidate r-eceives less
than 15 percent of the votes, the cau-
cus cannot end until those votes
align with another candidate. The


debate gets heated as the swing
votes are romanced. Ironically, the
caucus activities on both the
Democratic and Republican sides
ar-e not binding on the elected dele-
gates, but the delegates usually fol-
lowed the wishes expressed by the
caucus-goers.
My caucus days are over,
but I remain proud of those hours
spent in spirited debate as we
picked our delegates to represent
us at our county and state conven-
tions. Now Iwatch and read
as lowa leads the parade and
enjoys its moment of fame. I don't
miss the cold, but do miss the
process.
By the way, Iowa is west of
Illinois and east of Nebraska and a
nice place to live.

As this column is published,
many of you are scratching your
head and asking yourself what exact-
ly is a caucus and why lowa? Having
lived in Iowa and having participated
I can attempt to explain. Every four
years l<>wa has its moment on center
stage and stars as the first primary
in the race for the White House. In
the first electoral event of the year
all 1,784 precincts in lowa meet and
elect dlelegates to their correspon-
ding county conventions. Those del-
egates select. delegates that go on to
the congressional andi state conven-
tions that eventually choose the del-
egates going to the national conven-
tions.
So what is the big deal? Although
only about 1 percent of the nation's
delegates are chosen by the lowa
State Convention, the Iowa caucuses


have served as an
early indication of
which candidates
for president might
win the nomination
of their political
party. Several can-
didates of the past
achieved successful
nationwide cam-
paigns after doing
well in the Iowa
caucuses. Jimmy
Carter catapulted
into the national
limelight after his
success in lowa
and all the way to


A more modern definition is a
process of political party members
gathering to make police decisions
and to select candidates.
For me it was a short walk to the
elementary school two blocks from
my house. It was always bitter cold
outside and the gym where we gath-
ered was steamy hot. The process
actually started weeks before the
scheduled caucus. Opinions run
strong. Candidates lobby hard.
Weeks leading up to cauculs night
there are animated discussions and,
sometimes, brittle debate in the
lines at the post office, at the check-
out counter in the grocery store or
at one of the endless neighborhood
coffees.
