If allowed by the city, a heliport for
helicopter sightseeing tours may be
constructed along the Amelia River
',ii tIh ofIt lh' city marina.
The city's Planning Advisory Board
will discuss" tonight a Land
Development' Code change allowing
"airports and heliports" within the
Water Mixed-Use and Industrial

ed along the Amelia River at the city
waterfront and pipi- i l i%-, off North
14th Street "adjoining navigable parts
of Egans Creek Greenway," according
to a staff report, by Senior IPlan r, r Kelly
Gibson.
According to the report, applicant
Dan Simard, owner of Canam Aviators
of New Smyrna Beach, is requesting
several changes to the Land
Development Code "to allow a new
sightseeing opportunity, via helicop-
ter, to be located in Fernanidina Beach."
Simard said Tuesday his preferred
property is on land owned by David

An amendment to the Fernandina

Cook to ase that land.
According to the report, "A text
amendment to the LDC is the only
path for the applicant to consider in
obtaining this as a permissible activity
along the Amelia River."
"The nature of a helicopter sight-
seeing business can be viewed as suit-
able within these locations," the report
states, "as it provides direct access for
takeoff and landing over the river with-

Deputy, about to



be fired, resigns


News-Leader
A Nassau County Sheriff's deputy
has resigned: .d I. i than be fired "for
.ofinv,':riri i.L at..\ property for per-
sonal use."
Lt. Johnnie Hall, longtime vehicle
maintenance supervisor for the sher-
iff's office, resigned Monday after an
internal investigation recommended
Friday that he be fired. Another
deputy, Nick Gaskill, was suspended
for two days without pay and formally
reprimanded.
Aco ii ding to a sheriff's office press
release, Hall was accused on Feb. 10
of '.coV pliiiIg unlawful compensation
as a reward for of ici,,l behavior and
using agency equipment for personal
gain."
The sheriff's office and State
Attorney's Office began a joint inves-
tigation into the allegations and Hall
was suspended from duty with pay
pending the outcome of the investi-
gation.
The criminal allegations were that
Hall received an ice machine from
Robert Hammons in exchange for
using his position to exert influence on
the hiring and retaining of recruit
Justin Hammons, son of Robert
Hammons. The younger Hammons
was terminated from his job Feb. 6
for failure to meet probationary stan-
dards.
The second allegation was that Hall


and Gaskill had used vehicle diag-
nostic meters after hours on fon-sher-
iff's office vehicles.
On March 2 the State Attorney's
Office determined after its '..ci....
lion that an arrest warrant was not
justified.
But an internal sheriff's office
in\- .-ig.t 'ii, found on Feb. 24 that
Hall and Gaskill did violate operational
directives for converting agency prop-
erty for personal use. Hall resigned
prior to the imposition of final disci-
pline.
Hall was accused previously of
allowing a deputy to make personal
use of tires and rims off a seized vehi-
cle. Deputy Don HyattJr., who subse-
quently resigned his job, allegedly
exchanged tires and rims from a for-
feited truck with those on his person-
al vehicle, apparently with the approval
of Hall.
Assistant State Attorney Wes
White, head of the Nassau County
office, initiated a criminal probe into
that incident, which brought him into
conflict with Nassau County Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves.
Seagraves wrote State Attorney
Angela Corey a letter qut ;tionili
White's "professionalism" in his crim-
inal inquiry into Hyatt and Hall and
suggested that White was trying to
"terrorize" him.

Fernandina Beach Commissioners
gave approval 4-1 to the fii .i im .ldiiig of
an ordi l1:11 n ..,ll11 1 i.1 I change in zon-
ing to permit short-term rentals in
Forest Ridge Village.
Commissioner Sarah Pelican voted
;aluin i I ,,. zoning change at the meet-
ing March 6, citing concerns about
expansion of short-term rentals in the
city.
Forest Ridge, a 104-unit develop-
ni'hit '.'. illii 1i il.', li.i is zoned low-
density residential, already had spe-
cialized Planned Unit Development
zoning, but that did not include provi-
sions for short-term rentals. Built in
the 1980s, Forest Ridge \ Ill -.'. was
never ".ilid1.I,illi. ii .I toallow resort
rentals when the city began restricting


them in 2000 to:In hligl' .-i'ly zone
only.
The complex has been allowing
owners to rent out their units on a
short-term basis for many years, even
though it is not zoned for such, nor did
the condo ..;--.., i':,I i's covenllants
allow for such use.
The city's planning board voted
earlier this year to approve an amend-
ed overlay that would allow resort
rental permits in the condomiinium
complex.
Because of an updated city ordi-
nance and tighter restrictions, sever-
al unit owners in Forest Ridge were

rentals.

Michelle Picar said that parking is inade-
quate in Forest Ridge and that tourists using the
units make more car trips than residents, put-
ling more stress on First Avenue. She also said
Forest Ridge is "surrounded by communities
that do not permit resort rentals."
"If there is a need for more resort rentals,
put them in a commercial area," she said, "and
help us protect our neighborhood.."
Jim Powers said he owns a unit in Forest
Ridge and that the association's original dec-
laration allowed for rentals longer than one
week. Approving the PUD would not set a
precedent for more resort rentals, he said,
because there are no more PUD overlays left
after Forest Ridge has approval.
As far as rental violations, he said, "all the
serious ones come from long-term rentals, not
short-tel m."
Steve Thomson, who also owns a unit in
Forest Ridge, said the neighborhood "was never
in danger of every unit being a short-term
rental."
Thompson also said that short-term rentals
would not take business away from hotels and
B&Bs, because "there's plenty of business for
everyone."

of less than four weeks. Only
one high-density residential (R-

beach, allows for these types
of rentals. Some units in medi-

hoods also have resort-rental
permits that were "grandfather-

strictions were passed in 2000.

revitalization due to its existing
condition," the report states.
Gibson said she had also
provided many recommenda-
tions regarding the new heli-
port activity, including liability
insurance, permitting; size of
the helicopters and hours of
operation. Gibson also said she
was proposing a change in use
in the code from "airports andd


to do," Commissioner Tim
Poynter.said, regarding allow-
ing short-term rentals in Forest
Ridge for so many years. "All
the people that had purchased
these (units) had an under-
standing ... it was only after (the
city) increased the restrictions
that it became an issue."
'There was some culpabili-
ty on the city," Poynter said.
'Things could have been done
better."
Pelican said she was con-
cerned with a new state law

"rotorcraft sightseeing busi-
ness."
Gibson said helicopters, if
allowed by the city, would only
be allowed to have sightseeing
excursions over the Intracoastal
Waterway and Atlantic Ocean,
not over land.
According to the staff report,
the applicant wrote that "the
noise of a departing helicopter
300 feet away is equal to or less
than a motorcycle a block away
or a lawnmower three houses


allowing "Disney World zon-
ing," and asked if "someone
with a duplex could come back
and sue the city for short-term
rental (zoning)."
A state law that went into
effect last summer prevents
municipalities from putting any
new restriction on resort
rentals but resort rentals can
still be expanded in areas that
do not allow them.
The ordinance must still get
second approval from city com-
missioners.

"(The helicopter business)
could generate a tremendous
amount of activity and interest
if properly regulated," Gibson
said. "It could bring more
tourists into the city and also
generate more jobs."
The amendment to allow air-
ports and.heliports as a per-
missible use will be discussed
by the Planning Advisory Board
at 5 p.m. today in commission
chambers at City Hall, 204

Street to honor Verna Bell


TALLAHASSEE HB 7039,
which honors the late Verna
Bell of Fernandina Beach, was
approved by the Florida
Legislature yesterday.
HB 7039 states that part of
A1A between Lime and Beech
streets in Fernandina Beach is
designated as "Verna Bell Way."
The Department of Transpor-
tation will erect markers to
showcase this designation.
Bell was a lifelong resident of
Fernandina Beach, a respected


small business owner and com-
munity leader. She died in 2008
after a long battle with cancer.
"Verna Bell was a tremen-
dous advocate for our commu-
nity, and it was a joy to have had.
a chance to get to know her,"
said State Rep. Janet Adkins, a
sponsor of the bill "Recognizing
the life work of people who con-
tribute so much is one part of
being a state lawmaker that I
truly enjoy."
Bell was the former chair of


the Fernandina Beach Housing
Authority, an active member of
the Nassau County branch of
the NAACP, an active member
of the chamber of commerce,
president of the Democratic
Black Caucus and vice chair of
the Nassau County Democratic
Executive Committee.
She worked to register and
educate voters, was an advocate
for affordable housing and edu-
cation and organized an annual
school supply giveaway.

More jobs, but not enough


When the news broke
that the U.S. economy added
more than 200,000 jobs for
the third straight month in
February, you could hear the
trumpets of exultation.
Of course, this happens to
be an election year. And any
positive news is dramatized
into something bigger than
life.
At first glance, the
227,000 new non-farm jobs
created in February is posi-
tive news. Last August, for
instance, the U.S. economy
added no new jobs (when
you subtract what is added
and what is lost by layoffs,
reorganization, etc.).
"On the other hand, at
227,000 net new jobs, it's .
barely keeping up with p,.pu.
lation growth," N s Klaini.

Cumberland Island

National Seashore

aids local economy


ST. MARYS, Ga. A new
National Park Service report
shows that 91,996 visitors to
both the Cumberland Island
National Seashore mainland
and island visitor facilities
in 2010 spent just over
$6.1 million, in the local
area including St Marys,
Kingsland and Camden
County, Ga. That spending
'supported 97 jobs in the local
area.
"The people and the busi-
ness owners in our gateway
communities near Cdlmber-
land Island National Seashore
have always known the eco-
nomic value," said park super-
intendent Fred Boyles.
Most of the spending/jobs
are related to lodging, food,
and beverage service (52 per-
cent) followed by other retail
(29 percent), entertain-
ment/amusements (10 per-
cent), gas and local trans-
portation (7 percent) and
groceries (2 percent).
The figures are based on
$12 billion of direct spending
by 281 million visitors in 394
national parks and nearby
communities and are included
in an annual, peer-reviewed,
visitor spending analysis'
conducted by Dr. Daniel
Stynes of Michigan State
University for the National


Park Service.
Across the U.S, local visitor
spending added a total of $31
billion to the national economy
and supported' more than
258,000 jobs, an increase of
$689 million and 11,500 jobs
over 2009.

Cumberland Island is the
largest barrier island off the
coast of Georgia, encom-
passing more than 36,000
acres of maritime forests, salt-
marsh and beaches.
The island is also home to
over 9,800 acres of Congres-
sionally designated wilder-
ness. "
The Seashore is accessible,
by foot-only, passenger ferry
from the historic community
of St. Marys, Ga., and is cele-
brating its 40th anniversary
this year.

Klauder versus Crenshaw


On Saturday morning, with
the Nassau County Courthouse
on Centre Si i ..,i aa backdrop,
local resident Jim Klauder for-
mially announced the launch of
his campaign to retire Ander
Crenshaw from Congress in
2012.
Speaking-to a crowd of peo-
ple, Klauder said, "Ander
Crenshaw is the nicest guy you
would ever want to meet but he
has been in Congress too long
and has been voting the wrong
way on spending issues way too
long. His. vote to give Wall
Street bankers $750 billion and
his vote to raise the debt ceiling
by $2.4 trillion are just two
examples of his.misguided
acquiescence in the out-of-con-
trol spending and growth of
government.
"People realize that our
country has a serious national
debt problem. You don't need to
be a rocket scientist or in line
for a Nobel Prize in Economics
to understand where we are
headed. Any fourth-grader can
do the math, not to mention the
fact that it is those fourth-
graders who are going to inher-
it the unconscionable debt that
keeps growing because incum-
bents in Congress, like
- Crenshaw, keep increasing gov-
ernment spending. He's been


part of the problem. I want to go
to Washington and be part of
the solution."
Klauder said he had waited
to formally announce his
campaign until he had collec-
ted enough petitions to guar-
antee that his name would
appear on the primary ballot in
August.
"While collecting those peti-
tions I got an earful from thou-
sands of people who under-
stand that our country is
headed over a fiscal cliff," he
said.
'This will be an interesting
election," said Klauder. "Over,
on his side, as an incumbent,
Crenshaw's campaign coffers
are overflowing with money.
Well, he may have all the
money, but I have an advantage:
I have the message. For the
next five months, I will be talk-
ing about what we can do to
turn the ship of state around,
and part of my platform is not
promising a carrier for
Mayport. Ander has been
/ promising to bring an aircraft
carrier to Jacksonville for years
and maybe this is the year peo-
ple will catch on that he's been
selling a pig in a poke to get
reelected.
"I'll be talking about the
need to tighten our belt. Ander

Jan Davis
Jan Davis, whose death Saturday v
shocked and saddened so many people, was
perhaps the consummate volunteer in a
community of volunteers.
The Amelia Island Museum of History,
among others, has lost a great friend an'd
advocate. '
"Everyone who knew Jan was touched
by her drive and spirit, and her legacy has
left an indelible mark on not only the muse-
um, but on the hearts and minds of those
who had the opportunity to work with her,"
the museum said in an email announcing
her death to its patrons.
Jan Davis was precise, firm and all about
doing it right, whatever it was. She was a
pleasure for us to work with because she
was so organized, so detailed and so solici-
tous of our needs. We were always glad to
help with whatever she was organizing
because we knew it would be properly
planned and would come off without a
hitch, or close to it.
And,ifisomething wentawry, it would be.,
fixed'-if not possible straightaway, then
certainly by the next time.-
Jan's many endeavors here included sup-
port for the Amelia Island Chamber Music
Festival, Amelia Arts Academy, Micah's
Place, ARIAS, Trinity Methodist Church,
Amelia Plantation Chapel and so many
more.
Her writings in The Islander magazine
are a splendid collection of the special.
goings-on that make our island such a
pleasant place to live.
But the museum's annual home tour Was
a special triumph. Jan saw to it. Her organi-
zational skills were vital to making this a
"must" community event It was a monu-
mental achievement.
A memorial service for Jan is planned for
this coming Saturday at 11 a.m. at the
Amelia Plantation Chapel We express our
sympathies for her husband, Don, and their
family.
And for our community, which has lost a
true friend. This a better place thanks to Jan
Davis. We will miss her.

TAYLORJONES/POLMCAL


Closed for business? Who knew?


Political rhetoric is filled with widely used
phrases that don't mean anything; they have a
nice "soundbite" quality, but when closely
examined are more like a chocolate 6clair -
mostly empty. "Nassau County is open for
business" is one of those empty phrases.
Stop and think, how many times have we
heard that phrase recently? Gov. Rick Scott
said, "Florida is open for business." And at
least one city commissioner has said,
"Fernandina Beach is open for business." The
county, has, figuratively, thrown open its doors.
Why is this an empty phrase? Well, the impli-
cation is that Florida, the county and the city of
Fernandina Beach were "closed" for business
- a ridiculous notion. Consider:
Florida has consistently ranked among
the top five "pro-business" states in almost all
categories no state income tax, a very low
corporate income tax, few business-hampering
regulations, a corporate-sponsored state legis-
lature and an extremely business-friendly polit-
ical atmosphere at all levels of government.
"Closed for business?" Hardly.
Nassau County has never been "dosed
for business." The county has over 2,000 acres
zoned industrial just waiting for "business."
County property taxes are relatively low and
there are no impact fees. Regulations that
might discourage businesses from locating
here are virtually non-existent, there are no
rules mandating traffic concurrency and the
local elected body is literally salivating at the
thought of business, any business, moving to
the area.
Let's review: a ton of land just waiting for*
tenants, low property taxes, no impact fees,
few if any discouraging regulations, no traffic
concurrency and local politicians willing to


jump through any and all
hoops to get you here if
you're a business looking to
relocate, what's not to love
about Nassau County?
The city of Fernandina
Beach wants more business,
too, but given a fixed land
area (a specific geographic
area on an island) and a reluc-
DEXBATE tant population, it gets more
AND problematic.
TAfC City commissioners are
looking at expanding the CRA
.--- that "blighted" area that's
Ron Sapp not really "blighted" and
they've already increased
densities within the downtown area, keeping
their fingers crossed for a developer to take
the bait. City commissioners aren't as
Pavlovian as their county counterparts, their
salivation, at the word "developer" isn't as visi-
ble, isn't as transparent; it's there, you just
can't see it.
Someday, one hopes, the residents of
Florida, of Nassau County and of the city of
Fernandina Beach will say, collectively to the
Florida Legislature, the county commission
and to city commissioners "Just stop. Please,
just stop. Why don't you just do these things:"
1. Reinstate appropriate county impact fees.
Shouldn't the developer pay for "impacts"
related to their development? Shouldn't it be
the developer paying for those impacts rather
than the citizens of Nassau County?
2. Solve the problem of the A1A corridor,
that tangled mass of failed highway between
Yulee and Fernandina Beach. Shouldn't you
solve that problem first, before you allow more


development that will pour more traffic onto
that embarrassment?
3. Stop increasing the densities within an
area you say doesn't have sufficient infrastruc-
ture to support the existing population. If you
say the CRA is a blighted area because of
insufficient parking, roads, etc. to support the
people who live there now, does it really make
sense to enact measures that will increase that
population?
4. Commit yourselves to some, at least
some, level of traffic concurrency. I know,
county commissioners passed County
Resolution 2011-190 which allows the commis-
sion to impose "special assessments" taxes -
for "... road construction/road re-surfacing,
regional community and neighborhood
improvements, subdivision entrance construc-
tion and maintenance, street lighting and side-
walks and maintenance costs for road improve-
ments ...," but what does that mean? Will the
commission impose special assessments -
taxes generally, throughout the county on
every taxpayer for "improvements" caused by
the developer? No impact fees, no costs to the
developer, just to the people.
Here's my take on the much-abused, non-
sensical phrase "Open for business," whether
it relates to the state of Florida, Nassau County
or city of Fernandina Beach, it really should
be: "The state of Florida is for sale," or
"Nassau County is for sale," or "Fernandina
Beach is for sale." Better yet, what about just
one, all encompassing, completely accurate,
anti-6clair, bacon and eggs phrase: "For sale-
our quality of life."
Doesn't have a nice ring to it, you say?
Developers and politicians seem to like it
Ron Sapp is a former city commissioner.

Stfllplayingball
It's a sad day in Nassau county
when adults can find it in their cold
heart to destroy a Little League ball-
park! As a parent it broke my heart
to see my children and other chil-
dren cry opening day. When I
arrived I noticed all of our pennants
that our kids have won during tour-
naments had been cut with a razor.
Not one but all of them!
These dated back from 1978 and
can never be replaced. Many of
these had been signed by the kids
that won them. Our sunshades that
cost $22,000 had been cut open. A
girl's softball glove was cut into
.pieces. The green backing had all
been ripped apart
On Friday all 32 teams came to
the park to lean up and get ready
for opening day on Saturday. They
all beamed with excitement When
they arrived on Saturday morning
.. to.the destruction,- I'll just say I
hope to never see that kind of hurt
on children's faces again.
A large reward is being offered
by GTF paintball and many other
people are calling to offer reward
money as well. We did go on to have
a great opening day! The bad people
aren't going to win this one.
Someone has information on this.
Please have a heart and -help show
these kids good always wins and
bad people never will. Contact the

our kids! ,

Kony2012
Hello my name is Logan. I go to
FBMS and I'm in eighth.grade. I
recently heard about the Kony 2012
Campaign and immediately want-
ed to help. If you don't know
what Kony 2012 is that's not a big
shocker because not a lot of people
do. L
Joseph Kony is one of the
world's worst war criminals; he is
leader of the Lord's Resistance
Army (LRA) in Africa. What Joseph
Kony does is abduct children from
their families and use them as sex
slaves, personal servants and child
soldiers.
Kony has abducted around
30,000 children in Africa. After
being in the power of Joseph Kony
the children are forced to brutally-
kill innocent people, sometimes
even family members. If a child
refuses there are severe conse-
quences, sometimes even death.
Joseph Kony does this for no reason
other than just to be in power.
Kony 2012 is a organization cre-
ated to stop and capture Joseph
Kony but sadly we only have one
..... year to do it then the
door will close and the
*X opportunity would slip
away. As I stated before
not many people know
about Kony 2012, which
makes Kony not easy to

Speeding on
Ocean Avenue
I have felt compelled to write a
letter concerning this matter for
some time now but after seeing four
vehicles flying down our road this
morning I realized that something
has to be done. We live on Ocean
Avenue in Fernandina Beach and
have watched over the past year
people "flying" by our house.
People walk across Ocean to get
to the beach. Many people walk
their dogs, ride their bikes and jog
on this road. Many times a day you
will witness children darting out
onto Ocean from the many side
streets and homes that line it And
day in and day out we see drivers
speeding, at excessive speeds, down
this road with no concern for any-
one around them. If one of these
drivers loses control they could
destroy someone's home as close as
the houses are to the road. Not to
mention the lives that would be lost
if they hit someone at suoh a high
rate of speed. It's unreal!
There need to be speed Bumps
placed on this road to slow these
people down! In the few years that
we have lived here I have only seen
one person pulled over for speeding
on this road. Many of the people
coming to the beach park on this
road and many of the locals use this
road so that they can speed to get to
where they are going instead of
using Fletcher or Tarpon because
there is less police patrolling going
on.
Please slow down people. If you
want to race go to Daytona! Ocean
Avenue is not a speedway and if
someone doesn't do something
about it, someone is going to get
killed!

Lemon thieves.
I am livid! This morning there
are almost no lemons left on my
Meyer Lemon tree which is inside
the fence in my front yard. Legally,
how far can I go to protect my prop-
erty? One woman in my neighbor-
hood has bragged to a neighbor
that she comes "under the cover of
night" and steals themd. She told my
neighbor that I won't miss them.
Wrong!
I am retired on a fixed income.
You didn't buy my tree, plant my
tree, pay taxes on the property, pay
for the fertilizer, pay for the water,
weed, go out and cover it when it
gets below 29 nor pay for the hor-


ticultural spray. You are a thief!
Plain and simple. So are the rest of
you who come into my yard and
steal. They are my lemons. If you
are hungry, knock on the door and
I will make you and sandwich.

Tree Issue still alve
Those who think the tree issue
at the airport is dead best think
again. The article in the paper ("City
begins to trim trees near airport,"
March 7) is'misleading and would
lead one to believe that the issue
has been solved by removing one
pine and trimming a few oak trees.
Oh contraire. Don't forget that the
city spent $25,000 on a GPS tree
study. With this info, overlays will be
constructed by the airport engineer
to designate where the obstacles
and encroachments to the navigable
airspace are, and then in turn what
must be cleared.
It is true that the clearcutting of
over 100 acres of trees is off the
table, but does this mean that the
cutting is over and issue solved?
No.
The airport continues to be a
contentious issue as was revealed in
the presentation on the tree issue
recently sponsored by the Nassau
County Sierra Club. Big questions
still revolve around how the city
will choose to balance safety issues,
future airport expansion issues, tree
protection issues, the aesthetics of
our island and environmental/con-
servation concerns.
For me personally, the Sierra
meeting provided me with some
interesting things to ponder:
1. Not all "obstructions" to nav-
igable airspace are "hazards" and,
moreover, they shouldn't be billed
to the community as such. Some
obstructions (trees in this case) can
be "mitigated" by using lighting and
proper marking. Red lights on top of
poles shining upwards could be a
means of providing warnings for air
traffic, plus it's possible that the
FAA could have grant monies avail-
able if the city were to pursue such
a solution.
2. A resident doing due diligence
revealed that of 70 planes being
housed at the airport, only about
12 are owned by Fernandina Beach
residents. Should we care? I don't
know, but it does seem to be inter-
esting info.
3. Our airport runways are 5,000
feet long. Evidently the local pilots
who fly what was described as the
smaller "putt-putt" planes could con-
tinue to have safe takeoffs and land-


RJ MATSON/THEST. LOUIS POSTDISPATCH

ings if the airport thresholds were
shortened by 1,000 or more feet
Because the non-obstructed clear-
ances for both visual and instru-
ment landings are-calculated by
height clearances and wedge-
shaped widths, shortening runways
by 1,000 feet equals, 1000 less feet
needed for obstruction removal'(i.e,
trees). Would shortening runways
impact the "big" planes flying to
The Ritz and Omni maybe.
(Hmmm, the age-old dilemma, eco-
nomics vs. the environment.)
4. As it now stands, a, number of
trees will be removed along the
Amelia Parkway and on city-owned
' property at the golf course. Once
the overlay is complete, more trees
will be designated, probably many
more. Other trees will be "trim-
med." We can only hope that the
city kpows what it's doing and
trims more carefully than the elec-
tric company and some butchers
do.
5. Another FYI is that our cur-
rent airport layout plan was com-
pleted in 1999. A layout plan is a
visioning document, i.e., a master
plan. The current layout plan has a
"placeholder" for at least one run-
way to be lengthened to 6,000 feet.
Certainly this may not happen any-
time soon, but if it does transpire in
the future, that, expansion will
require another unobstructed
wedge of navigable airspace for
takeoff that would possibly be 1,000
feet wide and another 1,000 feet
long. Sayonara trees.
There are huge questions
regarding the vision for the airport
and surrounding areas that need to
be addressed by this community.
Such as, what's the vision that we
hold for the island, where's the bal-
ance, and what's the value of our
beauty and uniqueness?
One of my personal concerns in
the airport issue is conservation
related: the fact that the areas sur-
rounding the airport are the only
remaining wildlife corridors we
have for animals that move up and
down the island such as the deer,
bobcats, and even the odd black
bear. It has been said by people
more intelligent than I that "the
supreme challenge of the 21st cen-
tury will be how we resolve the
inherent conflict between human
activity and environmental sustain-
ability."
Sometime in April these issues
will surface, and the city commis-
sion will begin the debate. As citi-
zens we should consider where we
weigh in now.

Scam of the week: ATM card skimmers


This week Seniors vs. Crime
will update our readers on pre-
vention methods financial insti-.
tutions have put into place to
combat the fraud known as
ATM (Automated-Teller Ma-
chine) skimming. We will also
remind our readers of precau-
tions they can take to avoid los-
ing money when using their
ATM cards. Since November
2011 when we first reported on
this scam, new information has
come to our attention.
This scam is a type of fraud
that is perpetrated by placing a
device over the card insert slot
of an KATM at your bank or other
establishment that has an ATM.
Skimming is a relatively new
fraud.
The device records the mag-
netic information on customers'
cards such as the account hold-
er and the account number.
This information and stolen
PIN's are then sold to make


Seniors vs Crime

) A Special Project of the Florida Attorney General


counterfeit ATM, debit or cred-
it cards and withdraw money
from your accounts. A PIN is a
number assigned to an individ-
ual to establish identity in order
to gain access to a computer
system via an ATM or other
device.
When using an ATM, pay
attention to the face of the
machine where the keyboard
reader is located. Skimming
devices fit over the card insert
slot and are difficult to detect If
you encounter a loose-fitting
card slot faceplate, do not insert


your ATM card and notify the
bank or other place where the
ATM is located.
Last fall Seniors vs. Crime
reported that two banks .in
Virginia Beach, Va., discovered
skimmers had been placed on
their outside ATMs. They wcre
finally found when a customer
reported that one of the devices
came loose as she was using
the machine. A review of .the
bank security camera recorded
someone installing or remov-
ing one of the devices while
another stood by as a lookout.


A local .credit union in
Fernandina Beach has now
installed anti-skimming devices
at their ATMs in order to pro-
tect customers who make
deposits and perform other
transactions on their accounts.
They are also installing PIN
shields. A PIN shield is a hard
plastic cover that encapsulates
the ATM keypad and helps to
hide number entries on the
machine.
To protect against fraud
when using an ATM, Seniors
vs. Crime suggests you take the


following precautions:
1. Observe the face of the
machine and if you notice any-
thing that looks unusual, do not
insert your card and notify the
bank or business.
2. Be aware of the area
around the ATM for any suspi-
cious activity. Needless to say,
regardless of this discussion
about skimmers, never stay at
the ATM and count your
money. Move on and count it
later. Very seldom will an ATM
ever give you the. wrong
amount.
3. Look for a mirror or cam-
era near the ATM that could
expose your transaction and dis-
close your personal informa-
tion.
4. When entering your PIN,.
cover the keyboard with your
hand to hide your entries.
5. Finally, keep track of your
ATM transactions. If you notice
a discrepancy in your records,


immediately notify the financial
institution. If you use a debit
card you are only liable for a
maximum of $50 in charges as
long as you notify the bank with-
in two business days. After two
days the liability goes up to $500
and your risk is unlimited if you
fail to report unauthorized trans-
actions within 60 days.
Seniors vs. Crime is a special
project of the Florida State
Attorney General and in part-
nership with the Fernandina
Beach Police Department. Our
services are free and we are

FOR THE NEWS-LEADER


Here I am, based in a serv-
iced apartment on the 16th
floor of a building in the heart
of Bangkok, far removed from
a natural habitat, although
there is a city park with a rec-
tangular artificial lake far
below me. Inexplicably,
though, I've been given an
apartment with a large, unfur-
nished rooftop patio.
Immediately upon my
arrival here I sensed an
opportunity. Can I lure any
birds to my patio? What birds
cruise 16 stories high in a
concrete jun-
gle, anyway?
So, ever the
naturalist, I
endeavored
to find out;
My first
step in
Bangkok
involved
WILD finding
WAYS some cheap
plastic trays
"--'" to use as a
Pat birdbath and
Foster le a feeding
Foster- plate. This
was not so easy in my loca-
tion. All the shops and high-
rises around me cater to rich
expats and not locals. And
rich expats do not buy cheap
plastic plates. Eventually after
a couple of days I met my
longtime Thai friend and col-
league Budsabong for
dinner, and explained my
plight. With her help we
found a local market, and for
the cost of a dollar or so my
birdbath and feeding plate
were secured.
The following weekend I
accompanied another Thai
friend, Sompoad, off to the
\field to confer with his stu-
dents, and was able to wran-
gle a large diffenbachia plant
and a bunch of blooming
orchids into his car. So within
a week the scene was set.
Birdbath and feeders.
Beautiful orchids wired to a
stalwart sun-loving plant as a
backdrop. But then I had to
figure out food.
Of course they don't sell
birdseed here, at least none
that I could find. So I impro-
vised. Bucko had the great
idea of me bringing popcorn
to Thailand (my favorite
snack food) and brown paper
bags (which they don't use in
Asia) to microwave it in. Ah
yes, popcorn. It's a seed,
birds eat seeds. One food
item found. And, of course,

there's lots of rice around
here, another grain, and yes,
birds eat grains. Any leftover
rice frbm my meals now gets
tossed onto the patio. Over
the course of time ''ve been
tossing everything out there.
Leftover cut-up veggies.
Cucumber and tomato scraps,
hard-boiled egg pieces, even
leftover beef (but that experi-
ment failed).
Feed them and they will
come! I now have a regular
bunch of pigeons that visit my
patio to keep me entertained
while I write my reports. And
it turns out that every pigeon
Ipoks individually different -
if you are bored enough to
take notice. This is a great
animal behavior watching
opportunity!
First there was "Sooty,"
then "Stripe," then a'smaller
pigeon that I think is their off-
spring, "Brownie." Sooty and
Stripe seem to be a pair. At
least they perform beak-to-
beak contact and feed one
another. And Brownie is
always permitted to feed
along with them. These three
hang out together.
Other times Sooty, Stripe
and Brownie (SS&B) are
joined by three whitish
pigeons (Three Stooges),
which I haven't given individ-
ual names to (yet). These
three white birds always
arrive en masse, and are toler-
ated by SS&B. Another group
of four different pigeons
comes in sometimes instead.
One of them, "''ut, li .a
distinctiverth-r'k on its neck.
These pigeons are intimidat-
ed by SS&B and chased away
if they are detected on the


patio. They also feed raven-
ously when they do arrive,
gobbling down any scrap at
all, even the scraps that SS&B
disdain.
Now when I am down at
the apartment pool far below,
I can recognize some of the
pigeon groups foraging at this
level too the same ones that
visit me up top. There are
very few types of birds in my
area of Bangkok,.for the most
part only pigeons and spar-
rows, and the sparrows don't
seem to fly as high as my
16th-story patio.
But happily the pigeons
do, and so my pigeon chroni-
cles continue. Who says you
can't enjoy nature in a big
city? I'm having fun with this,
up here on my high perch,
trying different food items
and learning.the individual
personalities of my new
friends. It's certainly no rival
,to my animal life in
Fernandina Beach, with a
myriad of birds to watch at
my bird feeders, and occa-
sional otters, egrets and
woodstorks to watch in my
pond.
But it is nature. And it is
entertaining, this new insight
into the life of pigeons. It sure
beats looking out my win-
dows at nothing live at all.
' And you know what? I'm real-
ly getting to appreciate
pigeons!

Drugbusts

Two men were arrested late
Saturday night for cocaine pos-
session outside the Hammer-
head Bar in Fernandina Beach,
according to a police report.
Police said they saw Dylan
Alexander Parker, 28, of
Fernandina Beach and anoth-
er man outside Parker's
Landrover with the interior
lights on and the passenger
door ajar. Upon seeing an officer
exit his vehicle, the pair shut
the door and made for the bar,
police.said.
An open container was dis-
covered near the Landrover,
'according to the report, and
police gave the men a warning.
Police said both men were
behaving in an "extremely nerv-
ous" manner and kept glancing
back at the vehicle.
After the men returned to
the bar, police saw what
appeared to be a container filled
with cocaine next to the gear
shifter, according to the report.
Police said 45 minutes later,
Parker and another man, Bryan
Lowell Auck, 46, of Yulee,
approached the Landrover.
The pair allegedly looked
around in a "nervous and fidg-
ety manner" before getting into
the vehicle, police said. Police
approached the Landrover's
passenger side and saw the con-
tainer with the white substance
in clear view once more.
Police said, they then
ordered Auck and Parker out
of the vehicle. Both men denied
knowledge of any cocaine but
Parker told police had had a .38
caliber handgun in the car, the
report said.
A field-test of the powdery
substance yielded, a positive
result for cocaine weighing 9.1


grams, police said. Police took
Parker's gun and seized his
Landrover.
Parker, of 701 Stanley Drive,
Fernandina Beach, and Auck,
of 83195 Saint Mark Drive,
Yulee, are each charged with
possession of cocaine.
* *
A 19-year-old Hilliard man
was cited Thursday afternoon
for marijuana possession after
he dropped a bag of the drug on
the floor at the Nassau County
Tax Collector's Office, deputies
said.
Deputies said the man was
waiting for service around 2
p.m. when a bag of marijuana
fell from his shorts'.pocket to
the floor.
Witness accounts and video
surveillance confirmed the man
dropped it while seated in the
front row of chairs in the waiting
room, deputies said,
He told deputies the drugs
were his, deputies said. The
bagged substance yielded a pos-
itive result for marijuana,
according to the report. The
man was cited and released on
a charge of possession of less
than 20 grams of marijuana, a
misdemeanor offense.


DUIcharge
Deputies arrested a man
early March 2 for driving under
the influence with property
damage after he drove a car off
the boat ramp at Goffinsville
Park in Nassauville, according
to a deputy's report.-
' About 4 a.m., Clifford Erwin
Anderson drove a 1988 Nissan
280z east on Goffinsville Road
before traveling down the boat
ramp at high speed and com-
ing to a rest in 20 feet of water,
deputies said. The report did
not list Anderson's age or
address.
Anderson was able to exit
the car through a back hatch
that popped open when the vehi-


cle submerged, according to
the report. Witnesses told
deputies they entered the water
to help him because he could
not swim. Deputies said he was
not injured during the incident.
Anderson showed signs of
impairment, deputies said, and
performed poorly on field sobri-
ety tests. He allegedly told
deputies he had taken a pre-
scription narcotic pain reliever
and cocaine.
Anderson is charged with
driving under the influence with
property damage.

ALSwalk in Jacksonvllle
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 dis-
ease. 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 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

innisbrookResort The Transitions Championship was
Palm Harbor, Fla. founded in 2000 as the Tampa Bay
7,340 yards, Par 71 Classic. It was originally an alternate
-- event played the same .week as the
Defending: Gary Woodland Presidents Cup in 2000, and the same
Winning Score: 15-under par week as the WGC-American Express
Winner's Purse: $990,000 Championship in 2002. It was supposed
to be played the same week as the WGC-American Express Championship
on September 13-16,2001. However, the terrorist attacks of September 11th,
2001 forced the cancellations of both tournaments. In 2008, the event
became part of the Florida swing. Last year, Gary Woodland defeated Webb
Simpson'by one stroke and earned an invitation to the Masters.

g\ Tiger Woods's participation in
Y '-y\ next month's Masters
Tournament is in question after
-- he withdrew from the Cadillac
Championship because of tightness in his left
Achilles tendon. "I felt tightness in my left
Achilles warming up," Woods said Sunday in
an e-mailed statement. 11"t continued to get
progressively worse. After hitting my tee shot at
12, I decided it was necessary to withdraw."
Woods said he'll have the injury examined this
week before making a decision about his
playing future. He's next scheduled to play at
the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando,
Florida, which begins Marcih 22, two weeks
before the April 5 start of the Masters.


One of those shots that we do qot get the opportunity to practice very much, but
comes in handy at times is the lob shot. In essence, the lob shot is a complete
feel shot, so there are a few tricks to follow. The first step is to make sure that
your grip pressure is soft and your hands stay quiet. You want to keep your grip
pressure constant throughout the entire stroke. Your best course of action is to
make a long, lazy swing with as much wristcock as you' can get on your back-
swing. You need to make your stance much wider than what you are used to and open the
clubface up dramatically to get the ball in the air immediately. The final point is to play the ball
off of your left instep with almost all of your weight being placed on your right foot.

Loud,

"Winds were gusting up t
25 miles per hour from the
northeast, making the run to
Amelia Island especially
i-ough, particularly when we
had to navigate through a
rough Nassau Sound," Adan
Loud said. "It was also a cold
damp .day and my fishing
partner, Warren Stoughton,
and I wore full rain gear and
our life jackets the entire
day."
Loud teamed up with
Stoughton of Atlanta three
fishing seasons ago.
Stoughton, who vacations on
Amelia Island in his Summe
Beach condo, is also an avid
backwater angler who owns
Ranger Bay boat and Rangei
Banshee Extreme. The local
redfish team fished from
Stoughton's 16-foot Ranger
Banshee Saturday.
"We had to abandon our
first game plan, which include
ed fishing shallow mud flats
which were now pretty muc
beat up by the northerly
kinds, resulting in discolore
water," Loud said. "Our bac
up plan included working th
deep edge of a marsh with
jigs rigged with Berkley Gul
and spinner baits. Our first
redfish took a Berkley Gulp
and our second redfish took
spinner bait. We had two pei
fect 27-inch redfish in our
boat's livewell by 9:30 a.m."
Loud and Stoughton navi

weigh-in dock and waited

by a Yamaha four-stroke out

based fishing team also took
big redfish honors and first-
place Ranger points.
Ryan Conne4, also of

'Belle' is back by popular demand


An amazing partnership has
evolved. One talented woman,
long dead, and an actress who acts
as her spokesperson in an
enchanting one-woman show.
Sinda Nichols brings her spell-
binding-one-women portrayal of
Emily Dickinson, "Belle of
Amherst," back to Amelia Island.
Emily Elizabeth Dickinson,
born.in 1830, is one of America's
most famous and enigmatic poets.
Dickinspn wrote more than 1,800
poems, only a few of which were
published during her lifetime. Her
life is one of great mystery and
unanswered questions. Many have
tried to uncover the truth about
this very private and, often,
strange woman with such enor-
*mous talent Sinda brings her audi-
ence a glimpse of a woman who
could be tragic, funny and mysteri-
ous.
Since the first two performanc-
es in December of 2010 at Amelia


Community
T'heatire, the
.-- show has trav-
eled to five differ-
'- ent venues in
three states and
Ireland. Last

Anderson have another
opportunity to
experience an evening with Sinda
and Emily Dickinson. A series of
performances is schedule March
16-25 at the Fernandina Little
Theatre. The performances will
benefit the Friends of the Library.
Sinda is quick to give credit to
her director and mentor, Ron


Kurtz, long a fixture in island the-
atrical productions both on and off
' the stage. Nichols has been fasci-
nated with the enigmatic' Emily
Dickinson and portraying her on
the stage is a dream come true.
Kurtz and Nichols continue to fine-
tune and find new ways to create
magicical moments on stage.
Sinda recently shared how the
one-wonman show continues to
evolve: "Every space that I've per-
formed the show in has been quite
different and adds significantly to
the fun and challenge of perform-
ing the show. Over the last 15
months, the show has continued to
grow in leaps and bounds and con-
tinues to amaze me with what we
uncover and learn about Emily and
her life."
What is the future for Emily
and Sinda? Plans are in the works
for touring "Belle" regionally,
nationally and, hopefully, abroad.
The show has been designed to


travel and set up easily. No matter
the venue the audience will enjoy
a professional, quality theatrical
experience. Each show will always
strive to benefit in part a local
.library in honor of Emily's
extraordinary gift to the world of
literature and poetry.
Performances are not limited to
theaters but can also be done in
galleries, museums, libraries and
historical homes.
Performances are March 16,
17, 23 and 24 at 7:30 p.m. and
March 18 and 25 at 2:30 p.m. at

,. Rotarywelcomes Rayonier
The Fernandina Beach Rotary Club
recently welcomed Mike Bell, director of
External Affairs for Rayonier, whq talked
about TerraPointe, Rayonier's land
development subsidiary, and two proj-
ects it has in the works: the East Nassau
Employment Center and the Crawford
Diamond. The first encompasses some
24,000 acres adjacent to 1-95 and run-
ning east to Chester Road. The area,
being handled by the state and county as
a sector plan, has undergone some 19
public hearings and will be developed
over the next 50 years. While the plan
includes residential, retail, schools and
recreation areas, the initial focus is on
developing 2,500 acres near A1A and I-
95 as an employment center for corpo-
rate headquarters and research and
development companies. Bell said the
Crawford Diamond, an 1,800-acre site
with dual railroad access west of
Callahan, will be suitable for industrial
development because of its proximity to
1-95, 1-10, the Jacksonville airport,
JaxPort and the Port of Fernandina. The
Fernandina Beach Rotary Club meets
every Wednesday from 11:30 to 1 p.m.

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer
in the U.S., but it is largely preventable. If you're 50 or
older, please get screened. Screening finds precancerous
polyps, so they can be removed before they turn into cancer.
And screening finds colorecta I cancer early, when treatment
works best. If you're at increased risk-if you have a personal
or family history of polyps or colorectal cancer, or you have
inflammatory bowel disease-ask your doctor when to start
screening.

Screening saves lives.
