VICE MAYOR JEFFREY BI.TNCE


City officials at a goal-setting workshop on
Friday discussed the possibility of hiring a pub-
lic relations expert to rectify the city's purported
public information problems.
A plan to refurbish the downtown library-
rather than buy a new library building was also
broached, as well as the creation of "quiet zones"
at downtown railroad crossings.
In a discussion on enhancing the city's com-
munication and public awareness, Mayor Arlene
F~ilkoff, who has often complained about the city's
public image, said the city's IT department could
be a "more viable function" to get "better infor-
mation" out to residents.
Utilities Director John Mandrick noted that in
corporate culture the IT department supports
the business, and is not necessarily responsible


for getting information out to the public.
"~We have three people in that department,"
Mandrick said.
"Right now, we're asking I~to be all things to
all people," Filkoff said. "When you ask someone
to do everything, something's going to slip
through the cracks." She noted that IT Dir~ector
Mike Rooney is also responsible for the city's
public access channel.


Dave Lott, who was attending his firstr meet-
ing since being chosen as interim cityr manager,
said staff was already looking at a redesign of the
city's website. He added that there is a "clear
separation of IT infrastructure and the develop-
ment of content." .
Filkoff said that, in some cases, the city man-
ager served as public relations officer.
"That's how it's always been," said Vice Maylor

r-esourtes, and% delay in dredging may cost the city
an additional $100,000, city officials said at a meet-
ing Jan. 3.
Tlle marina has been plagued by heavy siltation
since the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer-s stopped
dr-edging the Amelia River to Rayonier 25 years ago.
Money to purchase the property and riparian
rights north of Parking Lot A may come from
grants or out of the $1.9 million the city has bor-
r-owed to finance the first phase of the Forward
F'ernandina strategic plan.
At a Feb. 3 goal-setting workshop held at the
Fernandina Municipal Golf Course, Commissioner
T`im Poynter brought up the possibility of buying
the river front pr-operty during a discussion on the


city's upcoming goals.
"I'd like to look at the purchase of waterfr~ont
land on the north side of the marina," Poynte~r said.
He noted the property could be had for a "bargain
price" and that moving docks to the deeper water
north of Parking In~t A would take care of the prob-
lem of constant dredging.
Poynter also noted that, with the docks where
they are now, the city has to dredge every few
years at a cost of$C300f,000) to $400),000 each time.
-"We're going tobe faced with dredgingev~ery
three to four years," Poynter said. "The north side
(of the marina) is never dredged and at low tide is


City marina docks may be moved nor-th if city
officials approve the purchase of landl direcctly north
of the marina.
According to previous mar-ina studies, the area
may be ideal for marina activity because it has
deep waters that do not need constant dredging -
but it is not clear who now owns the property
According to the Nassau County Property
Appraiser's website, the owner- is listed as Friont
Street Glad, LLC.
The cost of periodic dredging of the heavily
silted harbor marina has been a burden on city

Nassuau County is establishing
measures to prevent employee abuse
of county-issued devices after failing toKi;
conslistentivy enforce its cellular phonill
usage policy, said Clek of Cour ts Johln
Crawfordtl.
T'he clerk's office said in a Jaln :so
memo that it is not imposing a newr pol-
icy but reviewing an existing one
"Tlhe purpose of the review was to
improve the process by which w~e
determine whether something is
payable with public funds or not." said
Crawford. "And I think we've accom-
plished that."
The county has 97 cell phones used
by employees, costing near-ly $75.000 :
a year in charges.
Crawfor~d said the review whas
prompted by a citizen, who was c-on-
cer~ned that publicly funded assets in
this case, phones -were being used by
county employees for personal gain
But the cler-k said the process by
which his office ver~ifies business and
personal use of county phone.; had
broken down-
His office had been distr~ibuling
statement of use forms to each depail 1-
ment monthly, but failed to penalize
employees who did not document their
usage properly. To remedy that, the
clerk's office will not reimburse
employees for their cell phone bills if
they do not provide the required doc.

In a Jan. 13 letter, Crawford told
County Manager- Tedl Selby, "Although
personal calls or text messages may
fall under' thle usage limits provided
by the cell plan, they do not count
toward the over-all time/text message
limits established under the County's
service agreement. Employees are
responsible for promptly reimbursing
the County for all non-business (per-

"(Then) we could go to the
county and say~here's our plan.
Th~e county just doesn't want to
give us moneyi and not see us
follow through- We might lose
seven or eight parking spots,
but we'd add as much room as
where they need to be."
"W~e could do it in phases,"
Bunch said. iThat would keep
(the library) downtown. which
Ei what w~e want. The first thing
is to send out an RFQU for quake
ifiedl architects.
Intt noted city officials
would need to discuss the pro-
posal with county commission-
ers, because the county has
offered to kick in 8600,000 for a
newf downtown library. -
"W~e need to be clear on what
the overall offer is," Intt said.
Commissioners also dis-
cussed the creation of "quiet
zones" around the railroad
crossings at the end of Centre
and Ash streets, and for a new


crossing being installed at
Alachua Street. A quiet zone
prohibits trains sounding their
horns, which decreases the
noise lev-el for nearby; commu-
nities, bur requires safety meas
ures to compensate for the
absence of the horns.
City Attorney Tammi Bach ,
noted the Fe-deral Railroad
Association also requires an
engineering study to 'De com-
pleted by the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation and
FRA: before quiet zones are cre-
ated.
According to an email by city
Maintenance Director Glen
Semanisin, the cost of a quiet
zone strudy is not yet known but,
since the news Alachua crossing
will have all new gates and
warning lights, a quiet zone
would be included in the
875,000) estimated for the rail-
road crossing being created
there.


"However.CentreStrel and
Ash Street both have older
exiting gates and controllers,"
Seminisin w-rore -The cost for
Centre and Ash crossing rehab
wvork has not been included in

we do a study on quiet zonecs,"
Bunch said. "IstsYR gehat infor-

deal to buy the Wade-Vuturo
building for a new Fernandina
Beach branch library fell
through, the renovation of the
current downtown library is a
consideration.
In a recent con sultation with
an architect, Bunch said, it was
determined that the small park-
ing lot north of the current
library could be used to add
square footage to the building
as well as the atrium area.
Bunch said the new struc-
ture could add 6,000~ square feet
to the library, making the new
building 14,000j total square feet.
He also noted the concrete roof
ing should be replaced, and sug-
gested the city send out a
Request for Proposals for archi-
tectural services.
'We could at least have the
plans drawn up to renovate the
existing building," Bunch said.

Selby said the county select-
ed'initially a consolidated plan
with Verizon, but found the car-
rier didl not provide adequate
ser vice to some areas of the
county. As a result, each depart-
ment uses a carrier that best
suits its needs.
Complicating the issue is
the emergence of text messag-
ing, or texting.
Selby said there are prob-
lems enforcing the policy with
texting, primarily because text
messages do not pass through
county servers. The county is
not privy to the content of its
employees' text messages, he
said.
The county manager said
that's why he distributed an
email to department heads last
'fall, telling them not to perform
county business through tex-
ting.
Crawford contended that
text messages constitute public
r~ecords. The clerk said he con-
sulted with Barbara Peterson


of the F~irst Amendment
Foundation, who told him that
texting is a public record~it has
a retention schedule and gov-
ernments are required to keep
records of text messages, in
case of public inquiries.
"I know there have been
some court cases that have
clouded the water some,"
Crawford said. "I'm going to
always take the position no mat-
ter what: if you conducted some
business on a county asset, I'm
going to assume it was county
business and subject to Chapter
119 public records law."
The debate is noteworthy
because the citizen whose com-
plaint- sparked the- county's
review of the policy alleged that
County Commissioner Stacy
Johnson had sent more than
1,200 text messages to o~ne indi-
vidual over the span of three
months. County records con-
firmed the allegation.
Those text messages cov-
ered a period from September


through December when
Johnson had an unlimirtd tex-
ting or data plan for her phone.
She requested Jan. 17 that the
text messaging function be
blocked on her phone, accord-
ing to county Information
Technology Director Guy
Riner, and no longer uses it.
As elected officials, com-
missioners fall into a unique
position where enforcement
of cell phone -usage is con-
cerned.
"I can make suggestions to
the commissioners, but they
don't work for me," said Selby,
who serves at the pleasure of
the five commissioners.
According to the BQCC
manual, employees ought to
keep telephone lines open to
ensure constituents are served
properly; except for etnergen-
cies, staff shoidld not make or
receive personal~cals. The man-
ual forbids unauthorized tele-
pho e use.

Filkoff said. "It dloes speak even
mor~e so to buying that proper-
ty (north of the marinaa)"
City commissioners agreed
ini 2004 to purchase land or
water rights of properties~ north
of the city mar~ina for~relocation
of docks out of the mud, as part
of a "North Marina" plati, but
the family owning the proper~ty
declined to sell to the city.


meeting said the company hired
to diredge' the maritia, Pars
Construction Services, has
determined there is more silt
to be dredged than was previ-
ously thought. .
According to Mandrick, the
bid qluote for dredging was
based on exist-ing documents,
but since a marina survey was
done months ago, the marina
has shoaled even more.
"(The contractor) is going
to Come back and say he needs
mor-e, money,": Mandlrick snid.
"We hadl sel-ious delays on the
project."


S"Ther-e might be another
$100,000 to put into dredgingg"
Mandr-ick said.
According to an email fi-om
city Maintenance Director
Glenn Semanisin, a December
predredge survey revealed "the
marina continues to silt in and ...
more material lays in the mari-
na basin than was ther-e when
the permits were applied for,
and more than ther-e was when
bids for the dredging project
was advertisedd"

statement of use: forms indicat-

county-supplied phones for per-

for personal usage, the employ-
ee must include a check for the
amount owed.
Under the old policy,
employees paid back personal
usage at a ,rate per minute, ~
depending on their carriers.
Adhering to the updated policy,
employees will pay a flat rat~e
of 6 cents per' minute for calls
and 10 cents per text ,
Selby said 97 employees

Records show the county pays
three carriers AT&T, Sprint
and Verizon roughly $74,000
annually, or $763 per employee,

underground. but when
released as a green~house gas it
can add to climate warming,
However. humans could slow
~anrming remperatures as the
result of greenhouse gas emis-
sions from deforestation and
the burning of fossil fuels,
which are what speed up the
process of permafrost thaw
-Even though we're talking
about a place that is very far
awlay and seems to be out of
our control. we actually have
influence over what happ~els
based on the overall trajectory
of warming. Ii we followed a
lower traJectory of warming
based on controlling emissions
from the b~urning~ of fossil fuels,
it has the effect of slowing the
whole pr-ocess down and keep
ing a lot more carbon int the
ground." Schuur said. "Just by
addressing the source of emis-
sions that are from humans, we
have this potential to just keep
ever ythingecloser to its current
state, frozen in permafrost,
rather than going into the
atmosphere."
The survey shows that by
2100, experts believe the
amount of carbon released will
be 1.7 to 5.2 times greater than
previous models predict, under
scenarios 'where Arctic tem-
peratures rise 13.5 degrees
Fahrenheit. Some. predicted
e [fects- of global warming
include sea level rise, loss of
biodiversity as some or-ganisms
are unable to migrate as quick-
ly as the climate shifts and


more extreme weather evets r
that could affet~z food su~pply-
and water resources.
'This new~ research shows
that the unmanaged part of the
biosphere has a major role in
determining the future traj~c`-
rory- of ctlmate change,"~. said
Stanford Univerity biology pre
fessor Christopher Field. who
was not involved in the studi:
"The implication is sobering.
\Hiatever target wie set for -
atmosphe~ric CO', this new
research means wet will need
to work harder to reach it. Blut
of course, limitingf the amount
of climate change also deu-crs-
es the climnate damage frotm
permafrot melt~ling."
W~hen car-bon is r-eleased
homn thel ground as a result of
thawing perlmafrost, there is no
wvay of trapping the gases at the
sour-ce, so action to slow its
effect must be taken before-
hand.
"Ify~ou think about foil fuel
and deforestation, those are
things people are doing, so pre-
sumab~ly if you had enough will,
you could change your- laws
and adjust your society to slow
some of that down," Schaur
said. "But when carbon starts
being emitted from-the per-
mafrost, you can't immediately
say, 'OK, we've had enough of
this, let's just stop doing it,'
because it's a natural cycle emit-
ting carbon whether you like it
or not. Once we start pushing
it, it's going to be releasing
under its own dynamic."

UNQIVER\SITY OF FLORIDA ECOLOGISTEDWARD SclIUUR


GAINESVILLE As global
temperatures continue to rise at
an accelerated rate due to defor-
e~station and the burning of fos-
sil fuels, natural stores of car-
bon in the Airctic are cause for
serious concern, researchers
say.
In an article published last
month in the journal Nature, a
survey of 41 international
experts led by University of
Florida ecologist Edward
Schaur shows models created
to estimate global wiarming may
have underestimatedi the mag-
nitude of carbon emissions
from permafrost over the next
century. Its effect on climate
change is projected to be 2.5
timers greater than models pre
dieted, partly because of the
amount of methane released in
perrmafrost, or frozen soil
"We're talking about carbon
that's in soil, just like in your
,Karden where there's compost
containing carbon slowly b~reak-
ing down, but in permafrost it's
almost stopped because the soil
is fiozen," Schuur said. "As that
soil warms up, that carbon can
be broken down by bacteria
and fungi, and as they metabo-
ize, they are releasing carbon
and methane, gi-eenhouse


gases that cause w~arme~r tem-
peratures. "
As a result of plant and an~i-
mal remains decomposing for
thousands of years, organic car-
bon in the permafrost zone is
distributed across 11.7 million
square miles of land, an amount
that is more than three times
larger than previously estimat-
ed. The new number- is mainly
based on evidence the car-bon is
stored much deeper as the
result of observations, soil
measurements and experi-
ments.
"We know the models are
not yet giving us the right
answer it's going to take time
and development to make those
better, and that process is not
finished yet," Schuur said. "It's
an interesting exercise in
watching how scientists, who
are very cautious in their train-
ing, make hypotheses about
what our future will look like.


Tne numbers are significant,
and they appear like rthey are
plausible and they are large
enough for significant concern,
because if climate change goes
'0 or 30 percent iasrter that we
had pre-dicted already, that's a
pretty big boost."
the survey, which was com
pletecd following a N~cational
Science Foundation-funded
P'ermafr-ost Carbon Network
w4orksho;p about seven months
ago,) proposed f our warming
scenarios until 20410, 2100 and
2'300. Researchers were asked
to predict the amount of per-
mafrost likely to thaw, how
much carbon would be
released, and what amount
would be methane, which has
much more warming potential
than carborrdioxide.
The occurrence of carbon
in northern soils is 1atural and
the chemical does not have an
effect on climate if it remains

CAIN ESV11~I For years,

~\We have the possibility to
develop new products very sim-
ilar to grapefruit, and wie won't
have these issues. And they can
be used as afreshfruit, or peo-
ple can make juice from them,
and all these folks who are on
the medicines won't have to
worry about them," said Fred
Gmitter, a UF citrus breeder
based at the university's Citrus
Research and Education Center
in Imke Alfred,
In 1989, scientists doing a
study on how alcohol con-
sumption might inter-act with a
prescription drug attempted to
disguise the alcohol's taste by
mixing it with grapefruit juice
and discover-ed what is called
the "gr-apefruit juice effect."
In conjunction with some
medicmnes, including those
meant to lower cholesterol, the
grapefruit can change how
much of the druygs are absorbed
in the patients' bloodstr~eam,
intlensifying therapeIuti or side
effects. A chemical naturally
found in some vegetables and
fruits called f~uranocoumarin has
been identified as responsible
for the grapekuit- juice effect.
The UF Study began when
Flor~ida Depar-tment of Citrus
research scientist Paul Canca-
lon, also based at the Lake
Alfr-ed center, asked Gmitt-er's
labor ator y for samples of
F~lorida-gr~own grapefruit to
compare to grap~efruit grown in
Ollher places around the wor-ld.
Cancalon noticed that the
Flor~ida-grown grapefruit dem-
onstrated lower furanocoumarinn
content than grapefruit- grown
tih othei- places, i'bmpiinR.
Gmitter- and Cancalon to begin
checking more grapefruit and
pummelo varieties, as well as
hybrids, for furanocoumarin ley-
els.
Eventually, Gmitter said,
they found several hybrids with
little to no furanocoumarins,

It's difficult to draw big con-
clusions fr-om a small gr-oup,

Environmental Protection (DEP) is
charged with protecting Florida's
precious natural resources -ou ,
water, land and air -for all of us.A~s the state's
lead environmental agency, we are focusing on
three priorities: ensuring a more efficient reg-
ulatory process that is interpreted consistently
across the state: getting the water right in
Florida; and giving Floridians and visitors
more opportunities to enjoy Florida's award-
w~inning state parks.
During these challenging times, it's easy to
see that environmental protection and econom-
ic growth are complementary. Florida's beauti-
ful natural resources are a big reason that peo-
ple want to visit, live and do business in
Florida.
First, we are fostering a culture of excep-
tional customer service and greater regulatory
efficiency. ITiis doesn't mean that we're relax-
ing our standards. Instead, we're taking a clos-
er look at how we do things, to make sure our
processes make sense for both the environ-
ment and for the citizens of our state.IThe
Northeast District is now offering targeted
training, customized workshops and new
online tools that make our processes more ease
ily understood and our work more transparent.
DEP is also committed to getting the water
right in Florida. The future of our state's envi-
ronment and economy depend on the health of
our water bodies. For the hundreds of busi-


holders anld o~ur- i\ommuniy I I. to gnh jo~b donelr.

As the: chairman of the St. Johnls River
Water Management Distr~ict's G;ovierning
Boar-d, I am inspir~ed by all of the olpportunli-
ties ahead to ensure the quality andt quantity
of the water supply for nearly 5 million resi-
dents in more than 12,000 square miles in 18
counties in Northeast and Centr~al F~lor~ida.
I It is a pivotal time of change anld evolu-
tion for all five of F~lor~ida's water mnlagel~-
ment dlistricts. T'he St. Johns D~istrictl is
emer~ging as a str~ongrer andi mor~e focusedt
agency that has a cleaF path forwarrd. During
the past eight mont hs, considerably time
and ener-gy have gone into right-sizing the
agency to ensur-e that our budget, staffa;nd
prior-ities ar-e appropriate given our eco nom-
is climate and the needs ofr GLu environmental.
Because of1 the- changingK economic condli-
tions, we reduced our propert(y tax revenues
by more than 25 percent. We didl this in the
same way that your families and businesses
do. We focused on eliminating unnecessary
expenditures and identified ways to work
more efficiently. We reduced our staff to 591
highly qualified scientists, engineers and
other professionals. Even with these reduc-
tions, the productivity of our workfor-ce has
improved. We have not compromised our
core misSilons.
A thorough analysis of those core mis-
sions and our highest priorities is allowing
us to focus the $85 million a year- we receive
in property taxes on: implementing a recgion-
al water supply strategy to provide sufficient
quantities of water for users and the environ-
menti protecting water quality and natural
systems; and preventing increases in flood-
ing and operating and maintaining the dis-
trict's regional flood control projects.
~We are focused on working more effi-
clently and leveraging mor-e partnership
opportunities with our extremely diverse
constituency.
As a permitting agency, we ar-e tasked
viith upholding the laws of F~lorida that
relate to our region's water resources. Wle
will keep water resource protections solidly
in place. And we will continually search for
ways to improve these protections. We will
assist permitees to identify ways to achieve
their goals without compromising our stan-
dards.
As a water resource agency, we have the
experience and expertise to complete the
numerous regional restoration projects
already in progress. And we are well
equipped to undertake new projects that will
permanently enhance our quality of life.

That's why with the help of numerrous local
stakeholders and partner-s, DEP has dev!eloped l
and put in place a series of plans to substantial-
ly reduce the level of nutr-ients and bacter-ia in
the Inwer St. Johns River and its tributar-ies.
Thanks to these partnerships, we are remov-
ing nearly 6 million pounds of nutrients per
year from the river and many of our area tribu-
taries are already showing 50 percent less bac-
terial contamination,
These reductions are the direct result of
important local projects. For example, Orange
Park, Atlantic Beach, Clay County Utility
Authority and JEA upgraded their wastewater
treatment facilities to reduce nitrogen loads.
The U.S. Navy, Green Cove Springs and the
city of Palatka are implementing reuse projects
that reduce both nitrogen and phosphorous.
We have taken important steps to restore our

Home Again
SO joy! I clipped Stanley Bunch's
letter to the editor from the Feb.
issue of the News-Irader. Thank you,
Stanley, for taking me home again
with you. I noticed Stanley identi-
fied himself as being from "Fernan-
dina" (lose the Beach). That tells
me he is one of us home folks. I
have mailed his "You can go home
again" to my lifelong friend Elise
Braun (Holmes) who grew up with
me at FHS in the 1940s, in the com-
pany of Claude, Melba and Edgar
Haddock,
And I remember Sixth Street!
Th~at disintegrating little fr-ame
house on the corner of Sixth and
Date is where I spent Saturday sleep
overs with my beloved mater nal
grandmother, Dosia Sheffield, an
Avon lady who made her r-ounds
shielding herself against the sun
with a big black umbrella. My father
Nolan would drop me off fr-om o~ur
beach house on Soulth Fletlcher' and
r-etr-ieve his daughter on Sunday
morriing.i If I were able, Iw~ouldt bu /
what wits once my grandmothers' lit-
11e house with geranium pots on the
front porch to house me, and all the
mementos I have kept, physically
and mentally, of growing up in Small
Town Fernandina.
I am a Keeper of the Archives. In
my teens, accepted as an honor~ar-y
Baptist, I sang in the First Baptist
Choir. Church, any church, was our
social life, along with Waas Dr ug
Store downtown (cherrly Cokes, Big
Gr~eenies, vanilla ice cream in those
tulip-shaped glass dishes), Hall's
Variety Store and the wondrous Ritz
movie house across the str-eet fi-om
the Methodist Church, where we
girls watched glamorous screen
stars show us the way to woman-
hood, causing a disillusion or two
along the path.
I wax poetic. Sorry, but being a

Bad timeS
I was once again bothered by
Steve Nicklas' column in the paper
(Jan. 25). He begins his letter mak-
ing reference to the small towns
along Jacksonville's beaches but I
think he's referring toJacksonville's
pension woes since.he's talking
about a guaranteed rate of return
of 8 percent this was in the news
not too ling ago. That story was
about the shor-tfall the city is having
to make up because they based their
payout to retirees on a predicted 8-
plus percent return on their- contr-i-
butio~ns. Flow this is well and good in
good times but is bad when times a-e
bad. Times have been very bad for
investments. Perhaps Mr. Nicklas
should talk about that! But I digress.
All of a sudden we are talking
about the burden on the school
boards! Where in the world did that
come from? The schools here (and
most places in Florida) are in the
Florida Retirement System. You
know, this is the one that Gov. Rick
Scott cried about dur-ing the el'C-
tion (even though it is one of the
top five healthiest in the country).
It's also the one that Gonv. Sjcott said

by one of the organ izers of the ma-
ket. But he certainly came up with
great aggressiveness. To see me
calmly holding up a sign with that
exact quote on it. And offering
gospel tracts with five Bible verses.
So you think Christian persecution
is only in the Middle East. Think
again. After he told the female organ-
izer that I had every right to be there
he left. I continued to hold the sign
and tell everyone good morning and
offer them gospel tracts.
Then the female organizer
approached me with dissent in her
eyes and began to tell me that I can-
not be holding that sign on a pri- '
vate street. However, I don't think
she expected to find someone that -
was very educated in the First
Amendmelit of the Constitution and
access to a constitutional attorney. I
was very polite and explained to her
it was a public street and I could be
there as well as any of the public. I
-did however tell her I was not up
on the law as well as I should be so
I called the attorney and received a
call back within five minutes. I also
had a copy of the booklet, "Public
Evangelism under the First
Amendment"'llie attorney explain-
ed the law to me, and told the what
page to find it in the booklet, as he
was the author of the booklet. I went
back to speak to the female organ-
hzer. Iwaited quietly and patiefitly for
her customers to finish their pur-
chases. I motioned to her to come
over. I explained the law as it was
explained to me and offered her a
copy of the booklet as I have many.
She became angry and refused the
booklet and went back to her booth.
However, a man came out of the
first booth and at first was very
aggressive but calmed quickly as
he explained that I should not upset
her. I told him I was merely explain-
ing the law to her calmly and quiet-
ly, as I may return on future
Saturday and I wanted her to be
informed as to the rights of any one
that wanted to share their faithl in a
public place. I offered him a copy of
the booklet and he did receive it So
I guess if you stand for Jesus in
Fernandina you to are a target May
more Christians stand up publicly
and witness for the Isrd Jesus
Christ. I count it an honor to be
reviled for my savior.
May God bless our town.

of Atlanta, a nationally recognized
fuel farm expert consulting firm.
The project fixed both design
and construction defects in the city's
2001 fuel farm relocation project,
.bringing the city facility into comI-
pliance with both government reg-
ulations and industry standards.
McGill overcame a ,decade of city
Refusals and won the right to repair
the facility it leases from the city in
the airport litigation. The city's ~
answer to spill containment was to
place a dirt berm on two sides of
the 24,000-gallon fuel farm, which is
adjacent to a watercourse and sur-
rounded by grass. In 2004, it cost
over $45,000 to remove less than 50
-- gallons from the sandy soil thatwas
spilled during afueldelivery mishap.
John McGill, who owns our busi-
ness, said: "It's a shame we had to
pay a second time for a facility that
the taxpayers already paid for in
2001, but the city let its contractors
get away without meeting codes or
specifications. At least now, I won't
get a knot in my stomach every time
a delivery truck, one of our employ-
ees or a self-service customer uses
the fuel farm."
This project makes business
sense by adding value. It protects a
fragile environment. It makes the
facility safer for our people. It meets
or exceeds codes. It lowers busi-
ness risk. The city, which owns the
facility, gets an improved asset. We
have converted a ticking timebomb
into a state-of-the-art facility. We
could not have done this without
Ron Flick. Both our company and
the city owe Ron a debt of gratitude
for a valuable piece of privately-
financed, public infrastructure.

As a Christian in Fernandina
Beach we often hear about
Christians in foreign lands being
persecuted for their being outspo-

However, if you want to get the atten-

downtown Fernandina Beach on
Saturday morning and stand on pub
lic property at the farmers' market
and just hold up a sign quietly that
says, "Your best choice is Jesus
Christ" and 10 and behold the police

Most especially we would like to

their presence in making sure we

we~ say delicately, a bit on the
full-bodied. side.
At 10 years old, with short
legs, admittedly walking on
the: sandl may be more diffi-
cult for- him than for us. But
come on now, Zeus. Surely
you don't have to be urged
aIlong all the way. Hey, exer-
ciue is fun!
All went well enough in
ourT slow walk, until we got to
beach access 40), that is. At
this juncture Zeus stopped
dead in his tracks and laid
down on the sand, immov-
able. You see, he knows his
exit to his nearby house and
that's it. He laid down the law.
Not one step further. So we

Zeus had r-eally caught my

in the week andi went to her
office at T'ravel Leaders to fol-
low up o~n him. I found Zeus
right where I expected him,
basking on his cushy bed
beside Rita's desk. He's a
very polite dog and gets up to
great everyone who enters
the office, looking for trelts
no doubt. T~he mailman and
UPS decliveryman r-outinely
bring him snacks. But Zeus
does not want the healthy,
low-cal treats made out of

toes, not this
dog. He

sonality. In
the morning Rita takes him
for his beach walk, and this is
not as simple as you'd imag-
ine-. Zeus refuses to walk from
the house to the beach and, if
Rita puts: him in her car and
drives to the beach, then he
-refuses to leave the parking
lot. The only way to get him
to walk takes a teamwork
effor t. Rita's husband,
Claude, drives Rita and Zeus
to the beach, crrops them off
and then drives away. Zeus
longingly watches the depart-
ing car and then finally fol-
lows Rita to the beach,
On the beach, Zeus is
happy to greet Galax, Tassie,
lambchop and all the rest of
his regular canine friends
while Rita chats with their
owners. But as far as walking
goes, as far as access 40 is it.
"He's an access 40 dog," says
Rita.
Sometimes Rita has tried
to take a slightly different
route home from the beach,
on hot summer days, when
the path through the golf
course is shaded. But this
doesn't work for Zeus,
He will only walk the way he
knows Rita thinks he thinks
that any other way might
be longer-, andi he's not going
for it.
Once he's home he gets a
nice rewarding breakfast and
after-wards is eager to hop in
Rita's car and head to work.
His job is to greet all visitors

petted by everyone and to
beg for treats. But even
those treats he manages to
score can't compete with the
idea of his evening dinner
back at home. As 5 p.m.
approaches, Zeus starts his
go-home ritual. First he rum.
bles a bit deep in his throat. If
he gets no response, he rum-
bles a bit louder. Finally h6
can take it no longer. It's 5
p.m., don't they know it's din-
ner time?'llie rumble turns
into a bark. It's time to go

I'm not really sure who
owns whom in this relation-
ship between Rita and Zeus,
but they both seem quite
happy with the arrangement.
And most of the clients com-
ing in` to the Travel Leader
office on Sadler are happy
with both of them. Stop in to
visit sometime if you want to
meet Zeus. His soulful eyes
will charm you and his man-
ners are impeccable. And if
you bring a treat hell follow
you anywhere, as long as it
leads to his home and his
awaiting dinner bowl at 5 p.m.
on the dot. Our
Zeus is a very routine dog,
there's no doubt about it.
We should all have it so
good!

Nassau County Clerk of
Court's office procedures for
handling social security num-
bors, bank accountr, decbit,
charge and credit car~d numbers
containedl in court and official
records changed effective Jan. 1
as a result of changes in state
law.
'l'he Clerk of Court must
now keep Social Secuntiy num-
ber-s, bank account, debit,
charge andi credit carud numbe-s
confidential and exempt fr~om
inspection andi copyingr. This
change will affect two impor-tant


prlocess~s in theeclerk's office:
*Fiingi of cour-tdocuments
and official records. Deputy
clerks are nowy requiredu to man-
ually redact thle exempt infor-
mat~ion whe~n receiivin doc~u-
monts to be liod with the court
orI inl 1heC official r~ecor~ds until
the office installlsrecdaction soft-
warle. To( facilitate the filing
process, the clerk's office askts
citizens to redact exempt infor-
mation prior to filing documents
to be placed in court files
or recor-ded in the Official
Reco~ds.


*Customer requeslsto view
Gloes. Since deputy clerks must
review documents contained in
court files to see if.any informa-
tion must be r-edacted prior to
allowing customer-s access to
court files, the new law will like
ly mean longer wait times for
customnerswanting to view case
files at the clerk's office. When
a r-equest is made to view a
large file containing exempt
infor-mation, deputy clerks rnay
have to ask the -eqluestor to
return to the offlee at a later
time, allowing deputy clerks ade-


quate timle to redact excnmpt
infor motion.
S"My capable andi eff~icint
staff will work hardl, as they
always do, t-o make compliance
wyith theC nCw lalw; aS eamless
as possible. I resp~ecthllly aske
ou- c~ustomers to p~leaste bear
wyith us as this c~ha~nge takes
place,"' said Cloclk of Court/
Comptroller John Crawfotrd.
"My hope is that our customerIs
will undlerstand that any wait
time they e~xperience will
be a small tr-ade~-off for b-ette
privacy.

DUI arrest
A Fernandina Beach High
School student was arrested
for drunken driving about 10
p.m. Friday after he ran a stop
sign and struck another car,
according to a police report.
Police were called to an acci-
dent at South Fletcher Avenue
and Jasmine Street where they
found a 1998 Subaru and a 2000
Toyota pickup with major dam-
age, they said. The Toyota's
driver was injured, complained
of neck and back pain and
slipped in and out of con-
sciousness while speaking with
paramedics, who transported
him to an area hospital, police
said.
Police said the Subaru's
driver, age 19, was at fault and
blood samples were collected
from him at the scene. He
smelled of alcohol and alleged-
ly told investigators he had
been drinking four- hours ear-
lier, according to the r-epor-t.
He allegedly told police he was
the dr-iver-, the accident was his
fault and he had two vodka
cocktails prior- to the crash.
Police said the teen told
them he was eastbound on
Jasmine Str~eet and wanted to
see how fast the car could t~ay-
el the last time he looked at
'the speedometer, he was tr~ay-
eling 60 mph in a 35 mph zone.

S"It can become a parking lot of bass boats
in Salt Run during the spawning~ season,"
Pittman said. "Howeveis bass fishermen still
catch their sliare of trophy bass from this
clear, sandy bottom r~iver."
Rodman reservoir should also harbor
excellent trophy bass fishing during the next
few months. Florida's premier bass lake is now
in a full draw down mode from a maximum of

Lots of skill is also needled when detecting
str-ikes fr-om toophy bass during the spawning
season when. bass will typically pick up a lure
with their mouth andl drop it offfromtheir bed
with little if any signs of a strike.
"I wo~uldl have to say that I feet only one out
of 10 trophy bass strikes during the spawning
season," Pitiman saidl. "Most of my strikes are
detected by actually watching large female
bass mouth my bass lur-e.
"This is why it is extremely impor-tant to ;

lake or- rivers so~that you can not only locate
trophy bass, but also, see giant female bass

Right no~w bass are spawiling along the

hooking up to area trophy bass this year also.
Look for some of the best bass fishing in

Be 'sure to take several photos of your tr'o-
phy bass, take measurements of the length
and girth and r-elease your catch. Cat-ch-and-
release bass mounts are now available and
look better than the: real bass mount.
Releasing your trophy bass will give you
the.satisfaction that your cat-ch of~a lifetime
will not: only produce trophy bass, but will also
test the skills of bass fisher-men for years to
come.

More than 1,000 people will gather at
Seven Bridges at Tinseltown, in Jacksonville
M~afdh 31 to join the fight to find a cure for a
deadly illness. ALS, also known as Lou
Gehrig's Disease, progressively paralyzes its
victims, attacking nerve cells and pathways in
the brain or spinal cord.
ALS patients, including those in wheelchairs
along with their families and friends. will make
a two-mile trek in The Walk to Defeat ALS,
hoping their steps will make a difference for


ALS patients living in the Jacksonville area.
Many who walk have a loved one who is
still fighting the deadly disease. Others walk in
memory of a loved one who has lost the battle.
Many people, without any personal connection,
still walk out of a simple concern for those who
are suffering with Lou Gehrig's disease.
With just two to five years on average to
live, these patients have an urgent need and
the community is stepping in to fill it by walking
for those who can't. The Walk 'to.D'efeat ALS is
the ALS Association's signaturij event, in which
all funds directly support cutting-edgei
research, programs and patient pare. Last:
year, these events raised nearly $1.2 million
around the state of Florida.
All interested walkers should call 888-257i-
1717 or register online at www.WalktoDefeiat
ALS.org. Registration is at 8:30 a.m. with the
walk beginning at 10 a.m. Seven Bridges is
located at 9735 Gate Parkway.

"This winter has produced super mild
weather conditions, promising some of
Florida's very best trophy bass fishing of the-
year," said Gary Pittman, trop)1y bass fisher-
man. "Typically the spawning season begins in
late January and runs right
through the month of May."

"I look for some of the best late winter and
spring bass fishing to come during the after-
noon hours when male bass have moved off ~
from the beds and larger female bass move
onto the beds to spqlwn,",Pittman said. "Clear
water is critical hiring the early spawning sea-
son as clean water typically warms (ip faster
than stained water."
One of Pittman's successful trophy bass
fishing techniques includes pitching to small
open pockets of water in the grass. Some of
his best trophy bass fishing comes from shal-
low sloughs off from the river and bass lake .
shorelines that harbor shallow sandy weed
bottoms. ..
"Every trophy bass has its own personali- ~
ty," Pittman explains. "That's why I carry a -
variety of bass tackle on board my fishing
boat, including spinning and casting tackle. I
prefer the fluorocarbon fishing lines testing
from 10 to 20-pound test.
"I also bass fish with a variety of bass lur~es,

The PGA Touf~is moving closer to

~--i~primary rteans of getting to play

players meeting, PGA Tour commissioner Tim
Finchem, presented the basics of the plan. The
plan ia for the top 5 players from t Nationwide

their PGA Tour cards to play a three-toumnament
series. Players would be ranked based on how
they fared on their respective money lists, and
the top 50 after that series wNould eamn cards. The

where only Nationwide Tour' status would be
available. The earliest the overhaul aould be

The 14-and-under Sun~et-
ter black girls volleyball
team, cached by Heather
Starks, took first place in the
silver division of the River
City Win-ter Blast volleyball
tournament Jan. 2E&9 in
Jacksonville.
Sandy Catto and Lauren
Hege, volleyball coaches at
Yultee Middle School, started
a club volleyball team last
year with 10 players. The
Yulee SunSetters played m
the 14-and-under division and
traveled to Orlando for four
tournaments.
This year Catto enlisted
the help of Herb Hatch, long-
time coach at Fernandina
Beach High School and
Maniac club ball coach,
Starks, a former player of -
Catto's and Hatch's at FBHS,
and Donna Jackson, athletic
Director at Yulee High
School.
TIhey changed the name
to SunSetter Volleyball Club
and put together a roster of
49 girls from Fernandina,
Yuice and Hilliard. T`he club
consists of five teams (11s,
12s, two 14s and 17s). The
.teams practice twice a week
and travel to Jacksonville and
O~rlando to play in tourna-
ments.
"Our primary goal is to ,
provide the girls in our area


hit too many balls. Here are some suggestions in order to maintain flexibility and
k11; reep your muscles in use. Regardless of your age, participating consistently in
a golf-specific exercise program can greatly improve your game. A golf-specific
conditioning program consists of resistance training, cardiovascular condition-
ing, and functional flexibility. Walking, biking, stair-stepping, and running are
6Xamples of cardiovascular exercise. For flexibility, try reaching your hands to the ceiling and
stretching to your sides a couple of times each day. Tilting you~r head and neck Pack and forth
and side-to-side are also very common exercises.

comed Nassau County
Health Department
Medical D~irector D~r.
Eugenia Ngo-Seidel, left at
left with club President lc
Shann'on Brown. Seidel, A
medical director since
1997, spoke about the
department's mission to
improve comnmunty health
and emphasize preventa-
tive measures through
community health plan-
ning. Toward that goal, the
department began a
Partnership for a Healthier .
Nassau County last April. .
So far, the initiative has -' s irn
completed four MAPP
(Mobilizing for Action
Through Planning and '- ;1
Partnerships) assessments .:.
identifying the primary susH!\navu~
causes of death, the most
important health issues, areas of health concern and the top five forces of change forr
the county. The next step is to identify three to five strategic health priorities to focus
on for ~the future. Seidel noted that a healthier community means more economic bene-
fits for the whole of Nrassau County.
The Fernandina Beach Rotary Club meets Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at
