Noise, trees issues again at city airport


Aerobatic area up for permit renewal


New tree survey under way


MICHAEL PARNELLI.
News Leader
A group of local residents is seeking to stop the renew'-
al of a permit allowing an Acrobatic Practice Area just
west of the city's airport. Citizens have until March 2 to
make their views known to the Federal Aviation
Administration.
Keoki Gray of Amelia Island Aerobatics has requested
re-authorization for the area, which is located over Crane
Island and the adjacent waters of the Amelia River. An
Acrobatic Practice Area is a volume of airspace in which
an operator may practice acrobatic maneuvers.
Local residents have complained in the past about the
noise generated by such activities, however, and are doing
so again.
Barbara Farnsworth, who lives in Parkway North, a
neighborhood adjacent to the airport, has urged the city
commission to join in efforts to stop the renewal of the FAA


permit. Farnsworth, who also is a member of the city's
Airport Evaluation Advisory Committee, said she repre-
sents more than 100 neighbors in Parkway North and
many more in other neighborhoods near the airport.
"We are a group of folks who support our airport's
many benefits and appreciate its added value to our island's
economy.... (but) continuous noise that can be heard all
over Amelia Island, not just around the airport (constitutes
a) disruption of our right to live in a peaceful environ-
ment; potential impact on property values and ability to sell
properties," Farnsworth wrote to commissioners.
In addition to noise, Farnsworth maintained the "activ-
ity does not benefit our island's economy or contribute to
the airport's revenues. The aerobatic pilots fly in from
out-of-town airports, typically do not purchase gas at the
airport and do not stay overnight in our hotels and inns."
Local pilots do not support it, either, Farnsworth said,

MICHAEL PARNELL
News Leader
The Airport Advisory Commission
has approved spending $25,000 on a
new survey of trees to help determine
how many should be removed as
obstructions to city airport runways.
City Airport Manager Richard
Johnson told the advisory commission
in January that a new survey was
undertaken "so the city commission
can make an informed decision" about
removing trees near the airport,
according to the minutes of that meet-
ing.
Airport Advisory Conimission
Chair Mickey Baity noted the city com-
mission had agreed in December to


stop expanding instrument approach-
es to runways because of the potential
tree removal, which he "considered
an ill-conceived decision.," according
to the minutes.
Baily reported to the Airport
Advisory Commission in February that
the survey was in progress.
Nassau County Sierra Club is host-
ing a public meeting March 7 to dis-
cuss the issue of removing trees, run-
way approaches and other decisions
that could have potential environmen-
tal impacts. It is set for 7 p.m. at the
Council on Aging, 1367 South 18th St.

Underage
GARRETT PELICAN
News Leader
Underage drinking continues to
pose a problem in Nassau County.
Despite 'help from the Nassau
Alcohol, Crime and Drug Abatement
Coalition, area teens remain vulnera-
ble to the perils of substance abuse.
said NACDAC Director Susan
Woodford.
"Nobody sits down at the dinner
table and says, 'Mom, Dad, when I
grow up I want to be an alcoholic and
a drug addict,'" she said. "It happens
over time."
According to the 2010 Florida
Youth Substance Abuse Survey, alco-


drinking
hol remains the most widely used
substance with county students.
Woodford said the organization is
committed to working with youth to
provide solutions to substance abuse.
"We're trying to use youth to talk
to each other and to change the social
norms in our community," she said.
Some of these youth-driven efforts
include working with Mary Walker's
Digital Design class at Fernandina
Beach High School, in which the coali-
tion will help students perform a
social marketing campaign- In addi-
tion, the organization works with the
Teens for Change coalition at Yulee
High School. where the group coor-
dinates drug-free events. Involving


stubborn
youth in pro-social activities such as
these, Woodford said, makes young
people less likely to use alcohol and
other substances.
Woodford said NACDAC works
with youth because of the far-reaching
effects early substance abuse pre-
vention may have on them and their
surroundings. Not only can youth-
driven prevention protect young peo-
ple from behaviors that could impede
their educations and careers, but it
can be a boon for the community as
well.
"If you can delay kids' onset of use
by four years from age 15, you can cut
adult substance abuse in half," said
Woodford. "It's life-saving, yes, but


problem
economically it'll save our communi-
ty millions of dollars. The (University
of Miami Economic Impact study of
2007) showed that Nassau County
spent about $15.3 million per year for
underage drinking."
The organization has seen other
positive results emerge from its work-
Woodford said three years ago, NAGC
DAC saw a link between underage
alcohol use and delinquent crime, so
it focused on curbing underage drink-
ing and reducing crime.
"In that three years the crime has
decreased among our youth by about
30 percent, so we're pleased with that

Jury:


Larkin



deserves



death
GARRETT PEI.ICAN
News Leader
After convicting Gi'egory Larkin of
first-degree murder for the April 2009
slaying of his parents, a jury ruled
unanimously Friday that he should be
sentenced to death.
Twelve juroi u'ncluded Ihrii ill,
crime's heinoun-. .. iand iili nIuliphi
victims formed the
aggravating factors
needed to impose
the death penalty.
Circuit Judge
Robert Foster will
impose his judgment
Thursday at 1 p.m.
Painting a por-
trait of a killer devoid larlkin
of remorse, Assistant
State Attorney Wes
White told jurors Larkin, 38, beat his
parents Dick and Myra to death with a
baseball bat without pity.
"This defendant waited until they
were separated, he waited until they
were engaged in their favorite activities,
he waited until they were Vulnerable,"
said White during cl ing arguments.
"... The death penalty is the only appro-
priate penalty for this defendant."
Flanked by his standby counsel -
Assistant Public Defender Brian
Morrissey Larkin offered no closing
arguments, no mitigating factors and
no evidence and called no witnesses to
his defense.
Instead, Morrissey called Dr.
William Meadows to testify.
Morrissey's examination of Meadows
reaffirmed the forensic psychologist's
previous concern that Larkin may have
been "hiding" or "minimizing" an
underlying mental illness during one of
three separate evaluations to deter-
mine whether he was competent for
self-representation.
lIsrkin dismissed several attorneys,
alleging that they were colluding with
the State Attorney's Office to secure his
conviction, and represented himself at
his January trial in Nassau County
Circuit Court. After he was convicted,
Morrissey expressed concern that
Larkin might suffer from "psychotic
disturbances," prompting Foster to
order the evaluations.
But during his cross-examination
of Meadows on Friday, White revealed
that Larkin had no history of drug,
alcohol or sexual abuse in his family.
Nor was he prescribed medication or
seeking treatment for any psychologi-
cal disorders. In all he underwent three
evaluations, with two of the three doc-
tors finding him competent to proceed.
Meadows conceded that Larkin's
test results indicated he did not suffer
from psychosis, but he suggested the
defendant's guarded responses could
have affected the results.
He told White that Larkin was
coherent, intelligent and had an appre-

Youth illicit drug use


TALLAHASSEE Fewer
middle and high school stu-
dents are experimenting with
marijuana, alcohol and pre-
scription drugs, according to
,urvey results released recent-
ly by the Department of
Children and Families.
The 2011 Florida Youth
Substance Abuse Survey
showed less than 10 percent
of all students had tried drugs
other than marijuana within 30
days of the survey. Marijuana
u use was reported in 12 percent
of the students, a decline from
2010. Early use of cigarettes
and alcohol also dropped
among all age groups.
"We are encouraged to see
that more students are saying
no to cigarettes, drugs and
alcohol," said DCF Secretary
David Wilkins. "This survey
gives insight into the minds

outcome," she said. "Do I
know if the underage drinking
has gone down yet? No. But
do I see the consequences of
their use lessened? Yes, so
that's a positive sign for us."
And long-term trends indi-
cate young people are making
progress. In fact, the percent-
age of students who binge
drink has decreased by 4.6 per-
cent since 2000 to 20.3 percent,
and the percentage of those
who drink alcohol stands at
36.3, down 2.4 percent from
2000.
Aside from providing NAC-
DAC with office space at
FBHS, the school board has
been completely supportive of
the organization's work, said
Wood ford.

dren and lits our 'sate know
wher-e help is still n .-ded.-
Th.e survey is a collabora-
tion among that agency, the
Department of Health,
Department of Education arnd
Department ofJuvenile Justice.
The results come from a sur-
vey of 11,491 students in
grades 6-12 that was conducted
in 2011. There were 94 middle
schools and 78 high schools
participating. Student partici-
pation ranged from 76 percent
in those high schools partici-
pating to 85 percent in middle
schools.


All drug use except mari-
juana has declined each year
from 2002 to 2011. This year.
marijuana also saw a decline
from 2010. A majority of
respondents agreed that using
marijuana or smoking one pack
of cigarettes a day poses great
risk of harm. Disapproval of
other illegal drugs was at 95
percent.
There is still room for
improvement. Alcohol contin-
ues to be the most commonly
used drug among Florida stu-
dents.
Almost 50 percent report-
ed some use in their lifetime.


Tacklingdruguse
The Nassau Alcohol, Crime and Drug Abatement
Coalition seeks to educate, communicate and be a leader in
community collaboration in an effort to eliminate drug,
tobacco and alcohol use among our youth/young adults
while at the same time reducing criminal behavior associated
with substance abuse.
NACDAC meets the third Tuesday of each month For

partner in carrying the mes-
sage," she said. "For example
... I'm going to go teach in the
classroom. That can only be
done as a result of the cooper-
ation and the support of the
school system."
Still, Woodford said the
coalition faces a lot of barriers
in its fight against underage
drinking- peer pressure, ease
of access and poor communi-
cation.
"I think there's some denial


in the harmful effects of drugs
and alcohol in our community
and in our youth," she said.
Even so, she said parents
can play a pivotal role in stop-
ping the spread of underage
drinking.
"Our parents are the most
influential persons on their
children," said Woodford.
Preventing your teenager
from drinking can be as easy
as having a conversation, she
said.


One in eight r eor-td binge
drinking at some point .n. the
past two weeks. Inappropriate
use of prescription or over-
the-counter d:-ugs was less
than 3 percent but sill higher'
than any other illegal dru-g
besides marijuana and
inhalants.
The survey also studied
protective and risk factors that
would influence a child's drug
or alcohol use. including social
involvement, parental attitudes
toward drugs and alcohol, reli-
gious affiliation, bullying, conm-
munity support, family involve-
ment and stability in housing
and education.

and detailed charts on survey
results, go to www.dcf.state.

cations/fvsas and click on 2011
State Report or State Tables.


"Whatever your belief sys-
tem is, just have a conversa-
tion," Woodford said. "And you
.don't just have it once because
you could talk to them once
about alcohol and drugs and
they'll hear about alcohol and
drugs 20 times during the day
at school."
For those uncertain how to
have that conversation, she
said the coalition's website -
www.nacdac.org can help in
addition to providing useful
resources for concerned
youth, adults and parents alike.
"Our job is to inform, edu-
cate and offer solutions," said
Woodford. "We are a solution-
focused coalition. We are not
problem-oriented ... I'd rather
hear a way to change the atti-
tude and norms in our com-
munity, and that's what our
goal is."

The FAA renewed the permit
in 2t0S despite the city com-
mission's opposition at that
time.
An FAA dlralf enviroinien-
Ial assessment endorsed the
renewal of th(lie permit after it
found that "the bounds of the
APA would avoid residential and
other sensitive land uses." FAA\
regulations set restrictions on
aerobatic flight, such as mini-
nmtumi altitudes, distance from a
federal airway or flight within
certain classes of controlled air-
space.
The draft assessment said
the area, called a "box," would
be activated approximately
seven times per month, between


TREES Continued from 1A
Czymbor told commissioners
last fall that a new plan for air-
port tree removal would be
brought back after the first of
the year and could involve GIS
mapping to get exact measure-
ments of tree sizes to help deter-
mine what the options are.
The city's original proposal,
endorsed by the Airport
Advisory Commission in
August, identified 10,084 trees
on 188 acres of city property
that could be cut to bring in
$92,000 in revenue after being
sold as pulpwood. Replanting of
smaller tree species would have
replaced the trees cut and
reduced the income to the city.
Czymbor rejected that plan
after airport neighbors organ-
ized and complained. He said
categorically that no trees would
be cut on private property and
the city would revise the "pre-
liminary" plan to limit the num-
ber of trees removed on airport

through Satmurdays and between
noon and 6 p.m. on Sundays.
This would result in 63 hours

hours of operation per day.
according to the assessment.
"There are no noise sensi-
tive land uses such as resi-
dences. schools, churches or
other places of public assembly
beneath or within 1 4-mile of
tile perimeter of the proposed
APA." the assessment sltned.
The nearest residernct is 0.3

property, nearby city recreation
land and in the rights of way in
surrounding neighborhoods.
The city manager, who
resigned last month, said a
workshop would be scheduled
in early 2012 to address the
issue. That workshop has not
been scheduled.
The Forestry Co. of Perry
conducted the tree survey last
summer. The airport *also
engaged QED, which special-
izes in airport analysis, to review
the tree survey and assure com-
pliance with FAA'standards.
The airport's engineering con-
siltants, Passero Associates,
developed charts and graphics
used in the plan. It( was pre-
sented to the FAA for review.
But the consensus of city
commissioners has been to cut
only the fewest number of trees
possible causing obstacles to
current runway uses and not to
expand airport runway capaci-
ties if that would involve elimi-
nating more trees.


LARKIN
Continued from 1A
ciation for the charges leveled
against him. The defendant
exhibited appropriate court-
room behavior, he admitted.
"So he was able to control
himself?" White asked.
"Yes, sir," said Meadows.
Cleanly groomed and clad
in a navy blazer, Larkin sat qui-
etly through the proceedings.
Though unshackled, he


seemed restrained, his eyes
fixed at times on a window far
to his right. The only departure
from his reserved disposition
was his deadpan response to
Foster "I'll be available" -
when asked if Feb. 23 was an
acceptable date for the trial's
next hearing.
larkin has maintained his
innocence since his arrest in
April 2009, contending he was
on a job interview in Mexico
when his parents were killed


and that prosecutors failed to
establish a motive, proper time-
line or provide adequate DNA
evidence connecting him to the
murders.
Prosecutors said he killed
his parents with a bat and
smashed his father's head with
a statue at their Caprice Lane
home after he became enraged
over their plans to sell a failing
family business he had been
running in Costa Rica.

Faber is


regularly quoted in the busi-

as (eorge Soros, Bill (ross and
Warren Buffet. So ihis opinions
are credible.
There have been other
favorable reports about a turn-
around in housing. As Faber
cited, U.S. homebuilding com-
panies have reported better
earnings in recent quarters.
And their stock prices have sub-
sequently risen.
Faber alluded to the low
prices of houses in places like


Atlanta. .iam and even

it far easier to tgen' rate a posi-

rising because some potential
homnebuyers cannot secure a
mortgage. Therefore, people
are forced to rent.
In another indicator that
the housing market is recover-
ing, an index put out by the
National Association of Home
Builders soared to a four-year
high. The index measures the
sentiment of homebuilders -
so the sentiment heading into
the spring is obviously opti-
mistic.

socializing and having a few
pops. This is where deals were
made, ideas developed and rela-
tionships secured.
I learned the importance of
developing relationships and
trust early in my career. I dis-
covered that, with people who
shared similar interests and
objectives, it was easy to devel-
op relationships because it was
easy to spend quality time
together. However, it was much
more difficult to do so when
our interests and/or objectives
were not similar. I realized
though, that particularly if I
wanted to achieve difficult
objectives, these were the peo-
ple who really counted.
One of my first experiences
along these lines occurred
while I was still at P. Ballantine
and Sons, the New York brew-
ery. The brewery unions had a
reputation for being particu-
larly tough negotiators. It was
said that they had negotiated a
40-hour week even before the
railroads and the automobile
companies. In fact, because of
all the burdensome seniority
rules, overtime clauses and
working condition restrictions,
the overall effect of the unions
was a killer financially.
Four breweries negotiated
together every three years. In
my first negotiation my role was
limited to carrying our VP of
Industrial Relations bag and
learning. However, at the end of
the negotiation, when we were
discussing how to pay for the
agreement, I came up with an
idea in the health insurance
area that saved each of the
breweries about $100,000 annu-
ally. This impressed Charlie
LaMotta, the strongest of the


Fernandina Beach Optimist Club.

believing there would be no
benefit. Indeed, if all I got was
good advice, one could have
made an argument that I had
wasted my time and the com-
pany's money.
Soon after, my boss left, and
at the age of 29 I1 was promoted
to VP of Industrial Relations. I
was not ready to take over this
critical role and I felt my rela-
tionship with Charlie might be
the key to my success or fail-
ure. A year later, Investors
Funding, who had purchased
Ballantine from the
Badenhausen family, realized
they could not make it work
financially. The president
came to me and asked if I
thought we could get major
givebacks from the unions so
that we could develop a better
financial picture to attract buy-
ers. At the time though, there
was no precedent for unions
providing a company with this
kind of relief. The union line
was, "If they can't make it,
someone else will take their
place."
I asked for a week and
shopped the idea to the major.
Teamster leaders. The conver-
sations were frank, but none of
the leaders would agree to even
allow their members to vote on
giving us a break.
Charlie became the key. He
realized that, if we went down,
there would be major issues to

We also discussed the gap

Nassau County is consistent in
its graduation rates for all races.
Duval County drops from n2.1

dents to 65.7 percent gradu.a-

After several meetings" in my
office Tuesday and after attend-
ing the last meeting of the
Higher Education Appropria-
tions Subcommittee. I prepared
to present HB 903 to the PreK-
12 Appropriations Subcommit-
tee. I filed an amendment
Monday evening to establish
greater student equity in facility
funding for charter schools, allo-
cating 80 percent of the capital
village to charter schools based
on student enrollment. The allo-
cation would be reduced by any
ancillary funding received by
the charter school for mainte-
nance from the state or the
school district.
It is important to note that
charter schools are public
schools. They are not funded
privately by tuition dollars.
Charter schools take the FCAT
test and are given a school
,grade. It is also important to
note that only those school dis-
tricts with charter schools would
be affected; and they would only
be affected based on the num-
ber of students enrolled in a
charter school.
Language was added to
ensure that school districts
would be able to meet their
bond liability before "sharing"
capital funds with charter
schools. We had several parents
who spoke in favor of the
amendment, questioning why
their tax dollars did not support

their child's public charter
school. We also had lobbyists
and school districts speak
against the amendment. After
all of the public comment and
debate, the amendment recei-
ved a 7-7 voe and failed. HB .903
passed out of the conminlu't
without the -student equity
amendment.
'he reality is that the charter
schools in Florida receive less
per student than traditional
schools and the loss of PFCO
dollars -has adversely affected
tile viability of charter schools ;as
a school choice option. Charter
schools are an importaInt
resource that offer public edu-
cation to over 115,000 students
statewide.
The charterschools are pop-
ular among minority groups and
serve an important role in plac-
ing greater focus on science.
math or other subjects. Many
traditional public schools have
their own charter schools which
are called "conversion schools."
It has been expressed to me that
we can measure freedom by the
number of choices we have: it is
important that we create a
framework that ensures choices
for students and parents.
At 3 p.m., the House met in
session. It was a blessing to have
Pastor Rob Goyette from Living
Waters Outreach to say the invo-
cation at the start of session. I
have known Pastor Goyette for
.several years and was honored
to have him represent our com-
munity. We heard 40 bills includ-
ing HB 1351 dealing with home-
less youth. Florida has roughly
60,000 people facing homeless-
ness daily. During the 2009-10
school year, 49,000 school-aged
children were identified as
homeless. The primary causes
for youth homelessness appear
to be a family breakdown or a
systems failure of mainstream
programs like child welfare,
juvenile corrections'and mental
health programs.

The Florida lDepartment of
Education has established with-
in each county a "school district
homeless liaison" to assist
homeless youth twho do not
have immunizationS or medical
records to obtain lnecessaryv for
school enrollment. They also
help unaccotnpanied youth
choose and enroll ill a school.
The Florida D)epartment of
Health. IOffice of Vital Statistics,
maintains all vital records for
thile state. tnder current law,
homeless children are not
specifically given the ability to
obtain their birth certificate.
Current law provides that a per-
son must be of legal age to
obtain tlkeir birth ceritilicate. and
if they are not of legal age, the
birth certificate can be obtained
by a parent, guardian or other
legal representative. Therefore,
homeless children not of legal
age and without a parent,
guardian or other legal repre-
sentative are unable to obtain
their birth certificate.
The bill defines "certified
homeless youth" as a minor who
is a homeless child or youth,
including an unaccompanied
youth, as defined in federal law
and has been certified as home-
less or unaccompanied by a
school district homeless liaison:
the director of an emergency
shelter program funded by the
U.S. Department of Housing
and Urban Development; or the
director of a runaway or home-
less youth basic center or tran-
sitional living program funded
by the U.S. Department of
Health and Hutanl Services, or
the director's desigtnee.
Under current law, minors
who meet certain conditions can
be granted the same rights as an
adult. This process is known in
current law as "having the dis-
abilities of nonage removed." If
you know of someone who is 16
years of age who needs to com-
plete high school and is "home-
less" or sleeping on a couch,
please call the school district
and ask for the "homeless liai-
son" and help them complete
their education.
The bill expands instances
where the department must pro-
vide an individual with a copy
of an original, new or amended
birth certificate. The deparl-
ln till i1nsl provide such to i the
registrant if he or she is a certi-
fied homeless youth, or is a
minor who has had the disabil-
ities of nonage removed under
state statutes. The bill passed
with 117 yeas and 0 nays. -
Thursday began with anoth-
er Education Committee meet-
ing. This meeting had perhaps
the most bizarre ending of any
meeting I have ever attended.
We were running short on time
and had unanimously agreed to
have a vote on the last bill at the
time certain of 10:57 a.m. (The
meeting was scheduled to end at
11.) Just as the chairman was
preparing to have the roll call,
voices from another committee
meeting began coming in over
the speaker system. It took
everyone a couple of minutes
to figure out what was happen-
ing and members were forced to
cast their vote in spite of the
noise from the other commit-
tee. It was unfortunate that more
time was not given to members
of the public who had traveled to
the Capitol and wanted to be
heard.
Later that morning, I was
before the State Affairs Commit-
tee to present HB 1305 dealing
with the officers-elect and pub-
lic records; and HB 1089. HB
1089 provides an exemption
from public records require-
ments for personal identifying
and location information of cur-
rent and former investigators
and inspectors of the Depart-
ment of Business and Profes-
sional Regulation. At this com-
mittee, I offered an amendment
to include county tax collectors
as well. I was made aware of sev-
eral incidents in which tax col-
lectors and their families were
threatened and efforts were
made to break in to their homes.
On Thursday we again
worked to have the portion of
State Road 200 between Lime
Street and Beech Street desig-
nated a-s "Verna Bell Way" We
were successful in amending
HB 7039 with this language. I
believe this is the third time we
have attempted to get a bill
through with this language.
Verna Bell was a tremendous
advocate for our community and
it was a joy to have had a chance

a local gop : ..caLed
Lib-ry Tw'.eo rs. This anicle
dest-ribed a new group which is
reaching ou1 to :h local cormmuni-
ty in an effort 'o promote trans-
parency and accountability in all
level of local. s'ate and federal gov-
ernmeni.
Some of the quotes in the article
were construed by members of the
localTea Party group, The Nassau
Patriots. as being le-ss than Ilattering
and we, the Liberty Dwellers. wish
to clear up a few points. We would
like to make cliar that we are sup-
portive of anyone, or any group that
wishes to further the cause of
restoring the values that made this
country the most dynamic force for
individual freedom in the history
of the world.
Support for the values of our
founding fathers is so important
that there is no room in this pursuit
for division or derision among like-
minded groups.
There are many issues facing
our country that demand the atten-
tion, hard work and support of
everyone in the community that
would like to see freedom, pros-
perity and opportunity passed on
to future generations just as it was
passed to us from previous genera-
tions of patriotic Americans that
fought and died for our right to pur-
sue our own happiness in liberty.
The Liberty Dwellers would like
to thank Larry Murray for allowing
the patriot groups to meet at his
restaurant and we appreciate the
News-Leader for its support of com-
munity activism.
We also appreciate Ms. Daughtry
for writing about our group and we
appreciate the hard work being done
by everyone in the patriot move-
ment including and especially the
Nassau Patriots for their role in help-
ing to keep America and Nassau
County transparent and account-
able.
The Liberty l)wellers meet reg-
ularly and are now welcoming new
members to attend their meetings
every other Thursday starting
March 1 at the Peck Center at 3
p.m.
The Nassau Patriots meet regu-
larly on the first Saturday of every
month and welcome new members
at Murray's Grille in Yulee at 9:30
a.m.
We welcome and encourage
everyone to gel involved in the com-
hInunity and''support the efforts of

Pet meds on call
One more comment about the
"Charging for Prescriptions" issue.
I'm very glad to hear that 1-800-
PETMEDS has (finally) cleaned up
its act. When I owned a veterinary
practice in Fernandina I had posted


RICK MCKFE. 'ItI- AUGTSTA GA \ C'HitROMNi' -


on my bulletin board an article about
that company being sued by its
stockholders for unethical business
practices. I personally saw meds that
were purchased over the Internet
that were out of date upon arrival.
I've talked to vets who have seen
Internet-purchased products that
did not come from U.S. Food and
Drug approved sources.
"Physicians do not have an in-
,house pharmacy that contributes to
their cost of running a business: vet-
erinarians do not get loadsof (free)
samples from the drug companies.
And as Dr. Carter pointed out it does
take time to pull and review records,
call the Internet pharmacy back,
and record in the records what
meds were prescribed, from where,
for which animal, the name of the
drug, the amount prescribed and
the dose. All of which are required
by law.
The "donations" the Internet
pharmacies make to places like Cats
Angels is a tiny percentage of their
business compared to the charities
provided by local vets, most of which
get little recognition for their efforts.
Ask how much more it would cost
Cats Angels if local vets (including
whoever had the audacity to charge
for services) charged full price for
the now' discounted surgeries and
medicines they provide. Whatever
the "Internet" donates to some res-
cue groups is a pittance to bottom
line compared to what "lhe locals"
donate.
And-in conclusion, when "Fido"
or "Fluffy" needs an Xray, lab
work and surgery at 11 p.m. on a
weekend who you gonna call,
1-800-PETMEDS or your local vet?
Part of the costs of having very
expensive equipment available is
subsidized by the markup on the
drugs we prescribe.

VIEWPOINT/GERALDEEN G. CI-IESER/YULEE



The view from Fores


I write in regard to the article "Short-term
rentals for city condo complex OK?" on
the first pIage of your Feb. 15 edition. I
applaud your coverage of land use issLues
in such depth. Nonetheless, your readers need
additional information from the Feb. 8
Planning Advisory Board public hearing, and
some key information that unfortunately was
not part of that hearing in order to form a rea-
soned judgment on the issue.
In the interest of full disclosure, my hus-
band and I are recent purchasers of a unit at
Forest Ridge. We might well nothave made
the purchase had we known that short-term
rental authority was in question a fact that
the condo maniagenlejnt did not reveal to us int
response to our inquiries about short-term
rentals before ourl purchase.
First of all. I Lmust emphasize Forest Ridge
has been a short-term rental complex for 30
years. 'eve'r since the first condos were built in
1982. Th'e development was designed and built
as a resorIt rental complex and has always
be'n operated as such. Those worried about
change should worry about the consequtenc-es
of denying a PUD modification -which the
city insists is necessary to continue short-termn
rentals, even though arguably short-term
rentals have continued to be legal after the
20)0O change in R-2 zoning. The consequences
of a change would include loss of revenue for
the city and its tourist industry and probably
significantly reduced property values at Forest
Ridgit. Additionally, parking and traffic issues.
which have bheen raised by opponents., have to
be judged in terms of current levels versus
what would occur with no short-term rentals.
OIur analysis shows that both parking and traf-
fic issues would be worse without short-term
rentals.
Second, contrary to what was said at the
hearing (and thTlereore re-ported in your arti-
cle). the rules and regulations of the condo
association have provided for short-term
rentals since before the first sales in 19h83.
Page three ol the initial rules and regulation-,
of the condo association, which were officially
filed in the property records ont page 300 of
book 380 in Fe9bruary 19S3. as part of the fil-
ing of the Declaration of Condominium
required by Florida statues, provides that
rentals shall not be for less than one week (as
do the current rules and regulationss. That
provision was a limitation on the legal practice
of renting for any period of time. Senior
Planner Kelly Gibson., who is coordinating this

issue for the city, has confirmed that this pro-
vision was overlooked before the hearing, and
will be included in the package of papers that
will go to the city commission before they act.
This highly significant, new information shows
that all buyers when they bought, even the
very first buyers, were on notice that this
development was, and was intended to be, a
short-term resort rental complex.
Third, a strong indication that short-term
rental owners have always thought their activi-
ty was legal is that there never has been any
attempt to hide the short-term rental activity.
Owners have paid the county's required 11
percinlt lax onIi short-term rentals a tax that
is not due on long-term rentals. At the hear-
ing. the question was asked why the owners
doing s-hort-term rentals did not obtain city
licenses or seek to be grandfathered in 2000,
when the provision for short-term rentals was
eliminated for R-2 zoning. The obvious answer
is that no one at Forest Ridge had anv idea
that they- needed to be grandfathered or to
obtain licenses. Why not? The most logical
ans'wer is that the owners. and certainly the
boards of directors who were relied upon to
know and enforce the rules, thought their sta-
tus as a Planned Unit Development (PUD)
overcame, any residual R-2 status and assured
the continued legality of short-term rentals.
As far aa. we know. no complaint about short-
term rental- has even been registered
throi-ghout these 30y ears. We would argue'
that the F:or1c-t Ridge Village PUDI superseded
ihe condition- of the underlying R-2 zoning
that initially applied to the land. No significant
aspec t of the development adhered to R-2
standards: everything changed with the high-
density development ;hat the PUD-) estab-
lished. There was no need to put a specific
provision into the PUD since short-term
rentals were generally legal. However as
shown above, the initial rules and regulations.
officially filed in the property records, made-
clear that short-tetrm rentals were part of the-
deal. The fact that. as far as we know. not one
owner applied to be grandfathered in 2000


t Ridge

when short-term rentals were discontinued for
R-2 zoning only shows that everyone believed
the PUD had superseded any remaining ele-
ments of the original R-2 zoning. They contin-
uied to openly advertise for short-term renters
and to pay the required tax.
Parking and traffic will become more diffi-
cult if this amendment is denied and the status
quo is changed to outlaw short-term renters.
There are currently only 13 owner occupants
out of the 104 units, and approximately 27
long-term renters, a total of about 40 percent
of the units in the complex. Sixty percent of
those full-time occupants have two cars. They
leave their second car in one of the visitor
spots that are part of the 155 parking spaces.
Currently, with the majority of units either sec-
ond homes or short-term rentals, a significant
percentage of the units are vacant at any par-
ticular time: generally there is no parking or
traffic problem at all. But if short-term rentals
were to be prohibited, in due course many
more units would be occupied full-time, bring-
ing many more cars to the complex full-time,
thereby significantly complicating parking and
traffic issues. Many of the owners of nearby
single-family housing who commented nega-
tively on the proposal cited fears of increased
traffic and parking difficulties in the area as
the reason for their objection. Approval of the
amendment would preserve the status quo,
and the traffic that is. currently there. Denial
would inevitably lead to the increased parking
and traffic these opponents fear.
The city and it., economy would be dam-
aged by denial of thi- amendment. For sim-
plicity -ake. let's Oay, by wvav of illustration,
that the 20 units that are currently available
for rent on a short-terrm basis are rented, on
, average, for 15 weeks a year. for 1, )000/week.
The eliminalion of thi- bu-ine-, would cost
the c',i:in' approximately .."!. ) an nually in

lose a-. tour3-'- frequen' re-autrants and spe-

higher rate than fu!i-iirr;e re-iden,-. Thus this
action would be a ,ei:-ir.fliced. unnecessary
blow o t'he coi;nlty'- and me tour:-:, indu-try'--
coffers.F
A' th hearing, 'various Forest Ridge own-
or rebuked the argument that short-term
renter.- a.-e 'troub.emrtakers '-who produce exce-,
-ie garbage and cau,- noi-.e problems. These
ow.-ner- explained ihat a careful analysis of the
reported incidTenT of serious violations of the
complex's rule-< and regulations for the past


four years shows that all but three of the sig-
nificant problem had come from a few, trouble-
some long-term renters who are now gone,
None of this was conveyed in your article.
Finally, were this amendment to be denied,
the loss of property value for current owners
at the complex would be steep and rapid (88
percent of current owners who voiced an opin-
ion on the subject went on the record in sup-
port of short-term rentals, even though many
of them do not currently do short-term rent-
ing). This shows that they appreciate the sig-
nificance of short-term rentals in maintaining
their property value. Seven of the 1:3 owner
occupants are on record as supporting ithe
amendment. Only three of the 13 are on
record in opposition. Many of the owners who
rely on short-term rental income to maintain
their investment are presumably underwaterr
in their condo: owing more to the bank than
the condo would bring in a sale. Statistics
show that 40-50 percent of all Florida property
owners find themselves "underwater." Being
forced by finances to sell such a property
under these conditions could be disastrous to
them. The latest 3-bedroomrn/2-bath townlhou,,
to sell, albeit damaged, sold for i85,000 even
based on the assumption that short-term
rentals were an option, a price that is unthink-
ably low for some owners and might even
force some into foreclosure or bankruptcy.
In summary, many owners relied on assur-
ances from the condominium management,
the public rules and regulations (including 0I!
initial 1983 version on file' in the property
records), Internet rental sites and the long-
term practice of short-terrn rental- in making
the financial calculation- to buy thfir units

Outfoxed by fox squirrels


Whenever Bucko and I
drive up to the East Entrance
of the Okefenokee National
Wildlife Refuge near
Folkston, Ga-, we are always
primed to look for Sherman's
fox squirrels. The main
entrance road to the refuge,
even before you get to the
entrance kiosk, is prime habi-
tat for these larger than life
squirrels, nearly double the
size of the usual gray squir-
rels abounding in our neigh-
borhood on
Amelia
Island.
Sher-
man's fox
squirrels are
right at
home in lon-
gleaf pine
and scrub
WILD habitats, an
WAYS ecosystem
that is rapid-
ly disappear-
Pat ing due to
Foster- Turley development
of homes,
shopping malls and other
land-clearing processes in the
southeastern United States.
In Florida Sherman's fox
squirrels are a "species of
special concern" due to their
rarity. But in the Okefenokee
NWR longleaf pines are pre-
served and managed by con-
trolled burns to have just the
right amount of open space
and regeneration to keep
them going. This habitat shel-
ters the endangered red-cock-
aded woodpecker, fox squir-
rels and other species
threatened by loss of their
habitat elsewhere.
When you first see a fox
squirrel, it is their size that
impresses you, but after that,
the extra bushy tail and the
variable color patterns catch
your eye. Fox squirrels come
in all sorts of colors, each one,
individually marked in red-
dish, brownish, gray and
black tints. Because of their
unique color patterns, these
squirrels are relatively easy to
study. When you can tell indi-
viduals apart without trap-
ping, tagging, or otherwise
marking them, it's a big
advantage.
For a number of years Dr.


Ken Hoover and his students
at Jacksonville University
have been using these fea-
tures to study the fox squir-
rels that live at the White Oak
Conservation Center in Yulee.
This population of fox squir-
rels is said to have been
imported to the site by owner
Howard Gilman a few
decades ago, but they have
made it their home, repro-
duced and filled in the habi-
tat, living naturally now with
no human intervention. This
is one of the few places in our
region that still has longleaf
pines. Most other pine forests
that surround it are plantation
pines, which are a different
species, and regularly har-
vested not preferred habitat
for these particular squirrels.
The Sherman's fox squir-
rels at White Oak are easy to
watch, and quite accustomed
to people close enough to
observe their behavior. But
White Oak is a private place,
expensive to visit, and not an
easy place to watch squirrels
unless you work there or are
a guest.
In contrast, the Sherman's
fox squirrels at the
Okefenokee NWR are easy to
access. The refuge is open
every day, the admission fee
is nominal, and the squirrels
are there. But there is a
catch. The fox squirrels in the
Okefenokee are much more
wary of people. I can't tell you
how many dozens of times
I've glimpsed the fox squir-
rels on the entrance road, and
how many dozens of times
they disappear after the first
brief sighting.
Shy fox squirrels are near-
ly impossible to photograph.
They are adept at always
being on the other side of
whatever tree trunk I'm look-
ing at and I've not yet been
able to get a decent photo to
illustrate a column on them,
so, until now, no fox squirrel
column.
But thanks to Ken,
Vendola, here is my fox squir-
rel column at last. Ken provid-
ed these photos of Sherman's
fox squirrels that he shot on a
recent visit to Moss Park in
Orlando, where these squir-
rels are easier to watch than


KEN VENDOLA/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
Fox squirrels are twice the size of our usual gray squir-
rels, and are found in some parts of Florida where
appropriate longleaf pine woodland habitat exists.


those in the Okefenokee. If
you head further south to
areas of southern Flprida you
might also find another sub-
species of fox squirrel, the
Big Cypress fox squirrel,
which is classified in Florida
as a threatened species, even
rarer that the Sherman's sub-
species found in northeast
and central Florida.
Another fox squirrel sub-
species is more common and
found in the panhandle of
Florida, where lots of suitable
habitat still exists.


So now that you know
what to look for, keep your
eyes on the trees when you
visit parks and refuges in our
area. If you do see a fox squir-
rel, enjoy it! And thanks to
Ken for sharing his photos so
now we all know what to look
for!

Supporters work to save





St. Johns River Ferry


The ta-,k force working '!o
preserve the St. Johns Riv:r
Ferry Service has e-stablished
Internet and social media -ites
tied to the effort to pre-xerve the
ferry, which carrie-. A1A acro-ss
the St. Johns River.
The website, www.savethestl
johnsriverferry.org, contains
information about the long-run-
ning ferry service, as well as
how people interested in pre-
serving it can get involved with
the effort. The site also ha-, link-s
to various social media sites
which the task force plans to
use in its ongoing effort ts to pre-
serve the ferry.
"The St. Johns River Ferry
Service is a vital transportation
link on a state highway that has
broad economic and environ-
mental implications for 'the
entire First Coast, from St.
Augustine to Amelia Island,"
said task force chair Elaine
Brown. The JPA has been a
good steward of the ferry since
they took over the service in
2007. Now we're asking the
board for time to develop a plan
that will preserve this historic
service long-term."
The task force plans to bring
a strong contingent of ferry sup-
porters to the next meeting of
the Jacksonville Port Authority
Board on Monday.
Port Authority CEO Paul
Anderson has asked the board
for guidance on how to proceed


A website. urw. savethestjohnsriverferry.org.

contains information and links to

people interested in preserving it.


with the ferry service.
Port spokeswoman Nancy
Rubin says there are $4 million
in immediate repairs needed on
the berths on both side of the
river. The Port Authority also
subsidizes the ferry operations
in the amount of nearly -$700,000
per year. If the Port Authority
determines that it can no longer
operate the ferry, it and the asso-
ciated land in Mayport Village
will revert to the city of
Jacksonville.
"It should be made clear that
the ferry is still running, and
our goal is to be sure the serv-
ice' is uninterrupted" Brown
said. "Should the service stop,
people will be forced to cross
the river at the Dames Point
Bridge, adding as many as 20
miles to what are often daily

I --. ^, s ....


commutes. As we look at the
potential growth of Naval Station
Mayport, with littoral Combat
Ships coming in and the very
real potential of a nuclear carri-
er in the future, that link across
the river will become even more
important. And in a time when
our local and state governments
are championing jobs and small
businesses, closing this 'mov-
ing bridge' on a state highway
could spell the end to any
number of small businesses
along ALA. State and federal
assets such as the Timucuan
Preserve and Kingsley
Plantation would also be
adversely affected."
The Port Authority Board
next meets at 9 a.m. Monday at
its headquarters on Tallyrand
Avenue.

Johns knew when she
moved to the area in 2006 that
she wanted to volunteer.
"When we moved here, I
just knew I wanted to serve ...
and was blessed that I met
Chaplain Tippins and could
volunteer locally."
When she walks to the end
of the pier at Fort Clinch
State Park to recharge her
spiritual batteries, she
expresses her gratitude with
this prayer, "Thank you Lord
for giving me ears to hear and
eyes to see all the beauty and
the wonder that surrounds
me."
Johns also lends her sym-
pathetic ear to patients at the
Mayo Clinic for one week
each month as a paid chaplain
and is a student at Gordon-

2-0 start
The Pirate bals were
cracking- Friday night at
Episcopal High School. The
Pirates collected 11 hits en
route to their second victory
of the season.
The Pirates defeated the
host Eagles (6-3.
"We had a good offensive
performance backed up up
by solid pitching from Connor
Rooney and Ryne Casey,"
said Ken Roland, head base-
ball coach at Fernandina
Beach I igh School."
Casey picked up the win
with four innings of work,
holding Episcopal to just four
hits.
At the plate, Jeremy
Taylor, James Martin,
Thomas Guinn, C.J. Shelton
and Marcus Taylor had two
hits each. Jeremy Taylor
drove in two runs with a triple
and Shelton and Jake Foley
had ruin-scoring singles.
"We have got to continue
to make progress defensive-
lym," Roland said. "The
schedule will be challenging
for us and we have to contin-
ue to get better in all phases
of the game."
The Pirates hosted Lake
City Tuesday and travel to
Bolles Thursday. First pitch is
at 6 p.m.
The junior varsity
Pirates won the hit battle 8-2
Friday but they couldn't push
enough runs across to get the
win, instead losing 4-3 in
seven innings to Episcopal.
Episcopal would not relin-
quish the lead and the Pirates
were unable to weather a two-
run fourth-inning deficit.
The Pirates scored a run
in the fifth on an 7' f -ir.h -
by Zach Mellin.
Mellin led the Pirates'
offensive threat as he got on
base three times in the game.
He also drove in one runner.
Mellin singled in the fifth
inning and doubled in the sev-
enth inning.
In the bottom of the first,
the Pirates grabbed the early
lead, 2-0. They got things
going when Taylor Coley sin-
gled. A stolen bas-e th-en

Ambassadors, Nets battle on the court for charity


The Harlem Ambassadors
and the Nassau Nets will have
a ball for charity Friday night
at Fernandina Beach High
School-
They won't play fair. They
might elbow-drop an oppo-
nent and pin him to the bas-
ketball court. Someone might
get ogled and groped. ut it's
all for a good cause as the
Harlem Ambassadors use
every means fair or foul -
against the Nassau Nts in a
high-energy exhibition bas-
ketball game to be played on
at 6:30 p.m. in the FBHS gym.
If last year's score is any
indication (132-84), the
Nassau Nets have little
chance of beating the slam
dunking, traveling troupe of
professional hoopsters who
have taken their Harlem-style
basketball shenanigans to all
50 states and several coun-
tries overseas.
"We know we're liable to
be embarrassed on the
court," said Fernandina
Beach Rotary Club president
and Nassau Nets player
Shannon Brown. "But we're
also sure it will provide great
entertainment for everyone
watching and help us raise
money for our club's scholar-
ship program."
That's the point of every
game the Ambassadors play:

good time while helping

TRIBUTE TO FELLOW SURFER


PHOTOS BY ASHLEY I-IANEY/SPECIAL
Local surfer Brady McKenzie organized a memorial paddle out to honor fellow surfer
Ben Byrns, 20, on Feb. 15 after he was laid to rest, above and below. More than 40
surfers braved the chilly weather to accomplish this memorial while many others stood
on the beach to witness this amazing ritual. As all the surfers circled, placing flowers
in the middle, they said a few last words about Byrns, splashed and then caught one
more wave in his honor. Byrns was a 2010 graduate of Fernandina Beach High
School.

Football players will have

ALS walk in Jacksonville
More than 1,000 people will gather at
Seven Bridges at Tinseltown in Jacksonville
March 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 wheel-
chairs along with their families and friends,
will- make a two-mile trek in The Walk to
Defeat ALS, hoping their steps will make a dif-
ference 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 bat-
*tle. Many people, without any personal con-
nection, still walk out of a simple concern for
.those who are suffering with Lou Gehrig's dis-
ease.
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 walk-
ing for those who can't. The Walk to Defeat
ALS is the ALS Association's signature event,
in which all funds directly support cutting-
edge research, programs and patient care.
Last year, these events raised nearly $1.2 mil-
lion around the state of Florida.
All interested walkers should call 888-257-
1717 or register online at www.WalktoDefeat
ALS.org. Registration is at 8:30 a.m. with the
walk beginning at 10 a.m Seven Bridges is

Florida's Big Ledge, where
the dolphin and wahoo action
is beginning to heat up as
well. Hendrix also reports sea
bass action is hot'and heavy
at nearshore fish havens,
including FA and KBY reefs.
"We' are hooking some"
real black sea giants Lhat are
weighing over two pounds
each," Hendrix said. "I have
never in my lifetime seen so
many big sea bass. It's crazy
that we can't harvest sea bass
during the winter months;
there should be an open sea-
son for both red snapper and
sea bass."

Hendrix skippers the local
charter fishing boat "Heavy
Hitter" and is now targeting
other deep-water species,
including sheepshead, por-
gies, triggerfish and more, for
his charter guests during the
fish closures. Black sea bass
and grouper seasons will
reopen on May 1.
Tides this weekend will
find a high tide arriving at the
mouth of the St. Marys River
at 11 a.m. Sea trout fishing
should be excellent along the
rock and piling shoreline
from the mouth of Egans
Creek to the Fernandina
Port. Drift live shrimp under
a trout float in water depths
from 3-10 feel.
Whiting are also running
during the incoming high tide
at the St. Marys inlet while
fishing deep on the bottom
with ultra-fresh shrimp.
Sheepshead fishing
remains excellent close to
bridge pilings at the Shave
Bridge during the incoming
tide. Fish deep close to the
barnacle-crusted bridge pil-
ings with barnacles or fiddler
crabs.
Redfish action should heat
up during the late afternoon
falling tide at the deep sides
of boat docks and oysterbars.
Fish slow along the bottom
with Berkley Gulp Shrimp
rigged to a 1/4-ounce led
head jig.

FWC promotes access
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission introduced a
new feature on its website.
Users can now view and
search a database of Florida
boat ramps.
Boaters can visit the
Public Boat Ramp Finder site
to locate and obtain details for
more than 1,600 publicly
accessible boat ramps.
The database was created
from anll inventory conducted
for the Statewide Boating
Access Inventory and
Economic Assessment. The
I l.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
provided funding through the
Wildlife and Sport Fish
tRstoration's Boating Access
Program. Working with boat-
ing access management part-


ners, including Florida's
counties and the Department
of Environmental Protection,
the FWC identified and
indexed approximately 3,440
boat ramps around the state.
To access the database,
visit MyFWC.com/Boating.
To help improve and update
this database, the public is
asked to email BoatRamps
@MyFWC.com to report
errors or new information.

GPSsignals
Recreational boaters who
rely on global positioning
devices to keep them safely
on course can breathe a sigh
of relief since the Federal
Communications Commission
announced plans Feb. 14 to
revoke conditional approval of


a proposed cellular telephone
network that could interfere
with GPS signals.
The decision came after
the U.S. Commerce Depart-
ment advised the commission
that "at this time there are no
mitigation strategies" that
could prevent interference
with GPS signals if the cell
phone network planned by a
private company, Light-
Squared, were to be built as
proposed.
"This is a significant devel-
opment for all GPS users,"
said BoatUS President
Margaret Podlich. "The FCC,
as America's guardian of our
airwaves, needs to protect the
integrity of the GPS system. It
is one of the most important,
reliable, and critical elements
in navigation today-- on
boats, in the air, and on land."
According to Boat Owners
Association of'The United
States, many boat owners use
GPS chartplotters or carry
hand-held GPS units -
... nill;i,, electronic maps-
to safely navigate and steer
clear of shoals and other haz-
ards, sometimes in unfamiliar
waters.
Last summer, BoatUS
mounted a campaign to slow


down (he federal approval
process until adequate testing
could be done. BoatUS'
"Don't Mess With GPS" cam-
paign delivered over 18,0(X00
comments to the FCC from
concerned boaters all across
the country.
LightSquared had original-
ly asked the FCC for permis-
sion to build 40,000 cell
phone ground stations across
the country that would
expand broadband cellular
telephone service. In a Feb.
14 letter to the FCC, the
National Telecommunication
and Information Administra-
tion said tests indicate that
the network would "... cause
harmful interference to the
majority of general navigation
GPS receivers tested," and in
addition, noted that "handset
transmissions have the poten-
tial to impact General
Navigation GPS receivers."
"While the news is posi-
tive for America's boaters, we
aren't out of the woods yet,"
added Po.dlich. The FCC is
hosting a 15-day comment
period ending March 1 to
solicit feedback on their plans
to revoke LightSquared's con-
ditional permit. Visit

With limited public transportation
in Nassau County, transportation is a

to get back on their feet but have no
way to get to job interviews or to

PORCH Bikes can
change lives, as
denmion-strated by
Dickie the very first recipi-
Anderson ent. A man, who
last April was living
in an island homeless shelter, now
has a job as a busboy at a diner


because e h as a dependable way to
ge.; t work. More recently, a man
who i- homeless and had lost most

gram. \With renewed self-confidenpce
and self-esteem, he was ready to look
fi work Through the Bikes for
Barnabas programs>., he was provided
a bike that allowed him to get a job
and become self-sufficient. Just two
of many success stories.
So how does the program work?
You start with bicycle donations. The
program depends on people donat-
ing bicycles that are no longer used.
To date more than 50 bikes have
been donated to the program. Most
donated bicycles need extensive
repair and cleaning- Joel Beckham of


The Cycling and Fitness Center on
Eighth Street has donated his time,
but there is expense in fixiing up their
donated bikes,. 1 costs about stm per
bike to get them refurbished nwith
new tires. safety items and a secutlrily
lock. Ile program depends on donla-
lions to finance the supplies needed
for repair.
Who gets the bicycles? Barnabas
Center screens applicants and
requires that they "show they have a
job or are actively looking for a job to
be eligible for a bike," according to
Wanda Lanier, executive director.
"What seems like such a small and
inexpensive thing to do to help some-
one without transportation can actu-
ally make a huge difference in
changing their life and make it possi-


ble for them to live on their own."
