Crews dredge the city marina and load trucks with the spoils, which are now headed to a lot at the city
airport rather than city land at Eighth and Lime streets.

News-Leader
According to Interim City
Manager Dave. Lott, the U.S.
Department of Agriculture has deter-
mined excess dredge spoils from the
city marina can be deposited directly
at the Fernandina Beach Municipal
Airport.
As a result, 2,800 cubic yards of
dredge spoils will not be dumped at
a city lot at South Eighth and Lime
streets, as was previously planned.
The Federal Aviation
Administration had determined ear-
lier that dredge- spoils from the
Fernandina Harbor Marina should

not be dumped at the city airport
because the spoils could attract birds.
Lott stated in a March 14 email to
city officials that local resident Lynn
Williams facilitated a meeting with
USDA representatives last week.
They, along with Lott, viewed spoils
dumped at the city utility yard and
observed "there was no wildlife pres-
ent and virtually no odor," after which
samples were taken of the spoils.
"After a thorough inspection, we
traveled out to the airport to review
the proposed disposal site" that is
100 by 600 feet, Lott wrote.
"The large area will allow for a
shallower depth of material that
should result in faster drying time


airport

than the six months the original sites
will require due to their increased
depth," he wrote.
According to Lott, it was a report
from the USDA that led to the FAA's
recommendation that the marina
dredge spoils be taken to an alterna-
tive location and allowed to dry for six,
months before being brought to the
airport.
"We did' not begin using the air-
porit site until we were informed by
the USDA that they were removing
their" objection, which is what the
- FAA based their original position on,",

Motorist gets



812 years for



worker's death


News-Leader
A Fernandina Beach motorist who
struck and fatally injured a state road
crew worker last April,. then fled to
the Florida Keys, was sentenced to 8
1/2 years in a state prison Thursday
and had his driver's license revoked
for life.
James Stephen Buzzard, 60, plead-
ed guilty to DUI manslaughter and
was not prosecuted on a charge of
vehicular manslaughter.' After his
release he will be required to serve 6
1/2 years probation, undergo drug,
and alcohol treatment, attend_
Alcoholics Anonymous meetings once
a week and drink no alcohol
According to pulic,- reports at'the
time, Buzzard was so disoriented the
night of April 26 he didn't realize he'd
hit Harold Martens, a 58'year-old road.
crew worker who was laying sod along
South Fletcher Avenuenear Sadler
Road around 9 p.m. Martens was.
taken to Shands Jacksonville, where he
died two days later from his injuries.
A toxicology report later deter-
mined Buzzard's blood alcohol con-
tent was 0.35 that night, according to
the Florida Highway Patrol. Driving
under the inlluencC is defined as 0.08
or higher.
"Mr. Buzzard was so uncoordinat-
ed that even as he used (his) Jeep for
assistance, hewas still unable to stand
still without -saying and losing his
balance," Fernandina Beach Police
Patrolman Mike Mulkearns reported
from the scene. "Mr. Buzzard repeat-
ed himself several times and finished
each fragment _wit.h,.j las just trying
to make il,'l&- .e w' .......
According to the report tuzzad. a


local bartender, told
Mulkearns that he'd
"had a couple of
beers and that he
had been playing
golf all day."
Buzzard was
treated at the scene
for minor injuries
Buzzard and released after
S__ blood was drawn for
the toxicology test
and driven home in a taxi a move that
raised questions at the time.
Mulkearns wrote that while they
waited for the cab, Buzzard asked him
what was going to happen.
"Mr. Buzzard was still oblivious to
the fact that he had struck a pedestri-
an and I had to remind him of the"
severity of his traffic crash,"
Mulkearns wrote.
Assistant State Attorney Wesley
White and then-Florida Highway
Patrol Lt. Bill Leeper said at the time
that Buzzard was not arrested at the
scene because the toxicology results
would give authorities an exact pic-
ture of his level of impairment, allow-
ing him to be charged appropriately.
However, when police went to
arrest Buzzard on May 19, he had dis-
appeared from his Ocean Drive home.
He was apprehended the next day by
the Florida Highway Patrol in
Plantation Key and transported back
to Nassau County, where he has
remained in jail without bond.
Buzzard' also was ordered
Thursday to pay $150 to the Public
Defender's Office, $100 to the State
Attorney's office and $916 in court
costs. The court reserves jurisdiction
on a restitution amount.


Teens are on a



Marathon High


HEATHER. PERRY.
News-Leader
"The beauty of the program is
that it's non-competitive, meaning.
speed and athletic ability don't mat-
ter. It's open to kids ,f all back- -
grounds and all levels, and we
encourage and celebrate individuali-
ty," said 20-year runner Deborah
Dunham, referring to Marathon
Higl, a program she developed after
watching kids wander home like
they had nothing else to do when .
she picked up her teenage soni from
high school.
"What I saw was a segment of our
society who is often left out. When
kids reach this age, if they are not
on a varsity sport, there are few
other options for them," said
Dunham, a Fernandina Beach resi-
dent.
The goal of the Marathon High
program is to train high school stu-
dents to run a 13.1-mile half-
marathon, while also learning valu-
able life skills derived from
long-distance running.
Students meet twice a week after
school.to run and on Saturdays they
run with members of the Galloway.
Group, developed by top marathon
coach and former Olympian Jeff
Galloway using a run-walk method.
Dunham met with Galloway,
Chris Twiggs, a Fernandina resident
who is the national dliickir for
Galloway, and folks from The 26.2


With Donna
National Marathon
to Finish Breast
Cancer, to explain
she wanted to cre-
ate a free, non-com-
petitive program for
kids of all back
grounds and abili-
Dunham ties.
"Everyone was
on board and
wholeheartedly agreed to partner
with me," said Dunham.
Following the meeting with her
partners, Dunham recruited four
schools for the program's pilot year,
including Yulee High. The free pro-
gram, which runs October through
February, is open to all high schools
throughout Northeast Florida,
including Nassau, Duval, Clay and
St. Johns counties.
The program is designed to get
kids running and moving, teach
them the value of hard work, disci-
pline, consistency and never giving
up. It builds their self-esteem and
confidence, while making them feel
important in a world that is continu-
ally telling them they're not, said
Dunham.
"The program is open to all high
schools, so next season we are
already getting requests from more
schools who want to have a team."

OBITUARIES


Kenneth L. Brendle
Kenneth L. Brendle passed away on
March 15,2012 after living an active life as
a loving family man. It was a beautiful day
on Amelia Island and he was doing what he
loved riding his bicycle with a buddy.
Although his passing is heartbreaking to
his family and many friends, he leaves a
legacy of living a life of adventure and
inquisitiveness.
Ken was born on March 27, 1949 in
Pasadena, California. He received a
Master's degree from
Baylor University. He
enjoyed a long and suc-
S cessful insurance career,
; and retired as a Vice
President at Northland
Insurance Companies in
Sf. Paul, MN.
Most recently, he was
the President of the board of directors of
the Nassau County, FL Habitat for
Humanity.
His enthusiasm for life was exemplified
by his varied interests and a passion for giv-
ing back to others. He used his love for
bicycling to raise money for many charities.
His love of travel extended around the
globe and was captured- through his
extensive photography displays. He never
met a stranger. Friends were made easily
and often. Ken had a wealth of knowledge
about so many subjects that friends often
called him "Mr. Wizard" or "The Humran
Google."
He leaves behind his loving wife, Susan
Ford; a brother Joe (Ann), nephews Scott
and Bill Brendle and their families, his
niece Gail Brendle Benson and her family,
and sister-in-law Gloria Brendle Lamb, all
living in California; his mother-in-law
Delores Ford and Susan's extended fami-
ly.
He was preceded in death by older
brother, Hal, and his parents Harold and
Arlie Brendle.
He was living his dream. Ken always
said he woke up grateful each day for the
life he had and the people in it. He will be'
missed by so many.
Celebrations of his life are being
planned for FL and MN. If desired, dona-
tions in his memory are accepted at Nassau
Habitat for Humanity, 516 South 10th
Street, Suite 115, Fernandina Beach, FL
32034.
Please share his life story and leave
your memories and messages of condo-
lence at www.oxleyheard.com.

"Seeing their sense of
pride and joy at the finish line
was awesome!", said Dunham.
'"They were so excited that
they just did something they
didn't think they would ever
do. And they did it at 6:30 in

Participants are enthusias-


tic in their praise of the pro-

"I enjoyed every second of
being in the Marathon High

in comments collected follow-

was a huge accomplishment
for me. The weather didn't
stop me; my mind was
focused on the finish line.
This was something big that
many can't complete. I did it!
We did it!"
Another wrote, "I was so

Investments in our future


These are exciting times in
Nassau County even though
we may not realize it.
With many people and busi-
nesses struggling to meet their
needs, there are at least some
investments happening in the
community that will pay valu-
able dividends down the road.
Take the $80 million infu-
ion into what is now Omni
Amelia Island Plantation. Or
'the planning of the Rayonier
developments within the Terra
I'ointe project in Yulee.
These both have significant
ramifications for our area's
economy and way of life. They
are clearly investments in our
future.
Over the last 40 years, there
have been numerous landmark
developments here that impact
our everyday lives. In the
spirit of Top 10 lists, here they,
are:
No. 1: Omni Amelia Island
Plantation project: The imprqve-
mIpnts (new conference rooms,
recreation areas, etc.) will'pro-
vide luxurious activities and
attractions for future corporate
conventions. These events draw
in professionals with.money to
ptiur into the economy.
No. 2: Terra Pointe project:
While Terra Pointe is not nec-
,ssarily the name of this

Rayonier proj-
ect, it is how

refer to it.

between 1-95


and US 17 and with a lifespan
of the next 50 years.
No. 3: Sea Pines Co. con-
structing 'the original Amelia
Island Plantation. The land on
the south end of Amelia Island
- was converted from primarily
strip mining operations' into
what is now the Plantation. This
began in the early 1970s. Since
that time the Plantation has tast-
ed glory, hosting a profession-
al womefns tennis tournament
for almost 20 years (that was
televised on ESPN).
No. 4: Bankruptcies of
Amelia Island Plantation and
Smurfit-Stone Corp. These
watershed events in the 2009-10
time frame could have sent the
area's economy reeling. But

Ave,


both entities emerged from
bankruptcy with resilience and
flair.
No. 5: The construction of
The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island.
Even though the county com-
mission at the time actually
tried to prevent The Ritz from,
building here, the forces of free
enterprise prevailed. The Ritz's
upscale presence changed the
economy and the perception of
this area forever.
No. 6: The widening of state
highway ALA from 1-95 through
Callahan. Even though this
seems to be premature, the
growth of the county is obvi,-
ously on the West Side (con-
sidering Amelia Island is pret-
ty much built out). The
widening of this major state
highway will nimbly accom-
modate future growth.
No. 7: The commercializa-
tion of the AIA corridor
through Yulee. Though this
could have been planned better,
the introduction of major retail
chains has made our lives eas-
ier (without having to drive to
Jacksonville). Target and Home
Depot and Lowe's kicked it off,
with Kohl's and TJMaxx the lat-
est additions to the retail infra-.
structure.
No; 8: Retrofitting Centre
Street in downtown Fernandina


Beach. This 1970s project,
designed to return the idyllic
corridor to its historic roots,
initially met some resistance at
the time, but has paid off hand-
somely.
No. 9: Construction of the
'Nassau County Judicial Annex.
Even though county taxpayers
will be paying for this mon-
strosity of a building in Yulee
foir many years, it hopefully will
be revered at some point for its
magnificence. Next door to the
annex is the Florida State
College campus, which has also
been an overwhelmingly posi-
tive development.
No. 10: Development of the
Port of Fernandina and the
Yulee Tradeplex. Even though
these two enterprises were
related in name at one point,
they are both industrial break-
throughs for the area..Not only
have they provided high-pay-
,ing jobs, but they are examples
- of how industry can be intro-
duced in a palatable manner to
a residential area.

Room to grow


in West Nassau


KATHIE COLGROVE
Community Newspapers
Nassau County's economy
has room to grow on the
West Side.
After accepting a $1,000
dornatiuin b'rof Hilliard Mayor
David Buchan fi onMarch 1;i
Nassau County Economic
Development Board Execu-
tive Steve Rieck delivered an
annual overview outlining
planned and prospective busi-
ness projects in western
Nassau and on the East Side.
Rieck identified six "job
opportunity areas," including
two within the Callahan and
Hilliard .corridor and the
Crawford Diamond Industrial
Park near Bryceville. A goal is
to have the 1,800-acre
Crawford plat certified as a
"mega-site" for industrial use.
"We hope to bring lots of
new jobs to Nassau County in
the future," he said.
A 400-acre site formerly
designated as a residential
subdivision near Baker
County and 1-10 close to
Nassau County was rezoned
for industrial purposes as well.
Also, a proposed $200 mil-
lion hydroponics farming proj-
ect could bring 1,200 jobs pay-
ing $12-to $15 per hour.


To make agricultural pro-
duction possible, the site
would require at least 200
acres and access to at least 3
million of gallons of water
daily in addition to high
amounts of electricity usage,
Rieck said.
-*'We're not certain right
-now whether the consortium
that's trying to get this project
done will be able to put the
financing together that they
need to make it happen," he
said. "But we certainly don't
want to pass on it and say no
if y'all have an interest in it We
want to at least follow the rab-
bit down the hole and see
where it goes."
Councilman Cris
McConnell said the project
could have an enormous eco-
nomic trickle-down effect that
could benefit area families.
The NCEDB still has its
eye on utilizing Hilliard
Airpark. Rieck said the site
has the potential to support
light sport aerial drone sur-
veillance to aid national secu-
rity efforts of the Department
of Homeland Security.
However, asphalt is necessary
to enable takeoffs \ and
landings. The airpark's taxi-
ways and runways are all
grass.

WEDNI.SDAY, MARClI 21,2012 BUSINESS News Leader


Defuse anger at work -


A Spanish teacher fired from
Episcopal High School inll
Jacksonville returns to the
school, shoots and kills the
school's headmistress and then
himself. It's another chilling
rmiltndler lhat workplace vio-
lence in tile U.S. is a persistent
and dangerous problem. How
bad is it? A statistic from the
U.S. Department of Labor indi-
cates that homicide, is the
fourth-leaiding cause of occu-
pational injuries. And it is the
leading cause of death for
women in the workplace.
But the real tragedy, accord-
ing to Mike Staver of
Fernandina Beach, is that so
many of these violent incidents
could be avoided if employees
and leaders understood how to
recognize violence triggers and
how defuse them in the work-
place.
"Most people who act out
violently at work indicate what's
going to happen through their
words and behavior before-
hand," said Staver, author of 21
Ways to Defuse Anger and Calm
People Doumwn. "And while that
may not have been tfie case in
this Jacksonville incident, when
people can recognize the warn-
ing signs, they can do more to
prevent these 'terrible situa-


tions."
Through his book and work-
place seminars, Staver trains
organizations on how best to
handle conflict resolution and
defuse violence in the work-
place, teaching employees and
leaders what they should and
shouldn't, do in these high-
stress situations.
Most people believe that vio-
lence occurs when someone is
angry about certain circum-
stances. The truth is, they get
angry over what they believe
about the circumstances. When
a person gets angry, said Staver,
it's because at least one of three
primary triggers is in place..
They feel:
1. This is unfair.
2. This is out of my control.
3. This is personal, it's hap-
pening to me.
Note that when these fac-
tors are present they can man-
ifest themselves in many ways.
The angry employee might sim-
ply have a drop in performance
level. He might make threaten-
ing comments to another
employee or about the compa-
ny in general. Or in extreme
circumstances resort to worse
violence, as the Florida teacher
did.

1970s was
HQWard Fleischmann
Pines Distilling.
Like the auto
companies and the steel com-
panies, they negotiated as a
coalition. Seagrams, similar to
GM in'the automobile world,
was the big dog. They didn't
worry about international com-
petitors. They also didn't care
what they gave away to the
unions as long'as they made
sure their U.S. competitors pro-
vided the same. This was why
these unions ended up negoti-
ating eight weeks' vacation, 30-
year-and-out pensions and inef-
ficient working conditions for
their members. However, when
we became a global economy,
there suddenly were competi-
tors who did not have unions
or had much better contracts
with their unions, and the UN..
companies could no longer com-
pete. In addition, their employ-
ees at all levels only had jobs
or job prospects as long as their
inefficient employers remained
in existence.
The facts are someone is
always trying to develop the
next Kindle or Wikipedia that
may threaten notyour'company
but, if you have not kept up skill-
wise, 'your job. Just because a
new product looks less sub-
stantial, if it is easier to use or
cheaper to buy, your clients
and/or customers will try it. So
instead of resisting, begin to
plan how you can remain com-
petitive and/or adapt to the new
reality. On the other hand, if
you anticipate the changes, you
may be able to retire one day
arid play golf five times a week.

Recently the Encyclopedia

Obviously a casualty of the
Internet and a strong message
on how change affects our lives.
Business has a lot of trite
phrases. The one I hated the
most was, "If it ain't broke, don't
fix it." When the environment
changes dramatically, busi-
nesses and people, regardless of
how successful,- are greatly
affected. Think about compa-
nies and people who were sell-

writers, pay phones and ency-

agement first realize heii;K

worry, Suzie, they will always
need someone to take dicta-
tion!" Wrong. The trick is to
anticipate and prepare for major
changes in the environment.
Changes in client man-
agement an, example for
BeamPines was the senior VP
HR leaving ADP and the new
Sr. VP advising me that, since
we were wired to the top, he
wanted a firm he could control
to take over our work. The pres-
ident of ADP sent me a nice
note thanking us for our help
over the years, but advising that
he had to stand by the new Sr.
VP HR. The lesson here is that,
while it's great for the ego to
. develop a special relationship
with the CEO and the head of
HR, you had better also spend
time developing relationships
.with the number 2 and 3 play-
ers. When the top person
leaves, these individuals usual-
ly either move up or go to anoth-
er. company: In either case, if
you have built supportive rela-
tionships, they will want you
around for their next assign-
ment. On the other hand, if you
were not supportive when they
were lower in the organization,
they will most likely ignore you
when they move up or out.
When the economy goes
into.recession no matter how
caring the top executives are,
when profits tumble, they will
quickly look to cut out products
or jobs that feel good but don't
help the bottom line. For exam-
ple, in the late '80s a boom prod-
uct for consulting firms was
Outplacement Counseling
(OPC). While some felt OPC
was helpful in avoiding lawsuits,
CEOs mainly saw it as guilt
money. When profits are falling
CEOs feel very little guilt.

People can recognize the
warning signs. They can do
more to prevent these terrible
situations.'


MIKE STAVER, CEO
THE STAVER GROUI

son feels these factors the
worse the violence can get,"
said Staver. "Naturally, if you
see these triggers in a cowork-
er or employee, you should be
very concerned. It might seem
unusual that this violent act
occurred at a school between a
teacher and principal when so
much of the violence in our
schools seems to be perpetrat-
ed by students. But this situa-
tion is proof that these incidents
can happen in any workplace."
Of course,, the key to pre-
venting workplace violence is
knowing what to do when you
see that a coworker might be
susceptible to these triggers or
is displaying other warning
signs such as bullying you or
other coworkers, substance
abuse, frequently discussing
marital or other non-profes-
sional problems, making idle
threats, etc.


"First and foremost, tfike all
warning signs very, very seri-
ously," said Staver. "Second, and
this is just as important, report
it right away. Let me repeat that:
Report it right away! Far too
often coworkers don't report
these incidents. It happens for
many reasons: they believe the
popular myth that people who
make threats don't act on them;
they don't want to seem like


alarmists; they fear they'll
become a target; or there isn't a
sufficient workplace safety and
incident reporting system in
place. But when you suspect
I thini iswrong, you should
report it right away. lifthe lead-
ership at your organization isn't
taking it seriously, then go to
the authorities."
"That said, companies
should not place the burden
fully on employees," he added.
"All organizations' should
make sure that they have work-
place violence policies in place,
that all employees have a clear
understanding of the policies
and that all employees know
how to take action and what to
expect when they do report an
incident. Managers and leaders
should also be well-trained in


how to defuse anger in the
workplace and .also what
-kinds ofsituations are out of
their control and demand that
law enforcement be involved.
There is simply too much at
risk to avoid taking these
actions."
Staver is CEO of The Staver

gic business advisors and

i VIEWPOINT/PAT KEOGH/FERNANDINA BEACII


Wrong on
There you go again, Mr. Weitraub. You
were wrong about impact fees a year ago and
you are wrong in your recent Viewpoint
("Impact fees going out, taxes going up,"
March 7).
The facts are the county, at the recommen-
dation of its Impact Fee and Concurrency Task,
Force, is engaging an engineering firm to
design a new impact fee regime. Among the 11-
member citizen task force there is unanimous
agreement that Nassau County. will have an
impact fee ordinance.
Here's what the county has actually been
doing. About three years ago Nassau County
suspended impact fees. Impact fees are not a
tax but a fee. The fee,)by state and federal law,
can only be charged where growth requires
the development, of infrastructure to serve the
new population. In fact, once collected the fees
can only be-spent to ameliorate the costs
incurred from growth. The guiding legal princi-
ple is called the dual rational nexus test and the
burden is on local government to demonstrate
that the new growth caused the additional cost.
A local government that fails to meet the dual
rational nexus test must refund the fees collect-
ed.
The Board of County Commissioners recog-
nized that population growth had stopped in
Nassau and wisely, in my view, suspended
, charging impact fees. If there is no growth then
there is no impact. Both the local school board

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Countydarifes
resolution
The Board of County Commis-sion-
ers would like to clarify the purpose of
a resolution that was adopted at the
Dec. 12, 2011 meeting following a pub-
lic hearing. There seems to be some
misinterpretation about why this res-
olution was adopted and its purpose. -
The resolution in question is adopt-
ed annually by the Board of County ,
Commissioners and allows the county
to use.the uniform method of collect-
ing no.n-ad valorem, special assess-
ments. What this means is that the
county has the authority to collect non-
ad valorem special assessments on the
tax roll. This resolution does not allow
the board to impose new taxes. .
Non-ad valorem special assess-,
ments are assessed to properties with-
in certain taxing districts and are not
based on property tax values. For
example, there are five Community
Development Districts (Heron Isles,
Amelia National, River Glen, Amelia;
Walk, and Amerlia Concourse) ini
Nassau County which levy an annual
non-ad yalorem special assessment for
haintaihingproperty a-s stcucttires
within the subdivision such as fenc
ing, playground equipment and street-
lights. Only citizens choosing to reside
in these communities are charged the
assessment.
In addition to the five CDDs, there
are currently only two other non-ad
valorem special assessments in Nassau
County. The first is the Amelia
Concourse maintenance fee. This fee
only applies to those individuals resid-
ing along Amelia Concourse. The sec-
ond is the South Amelia Island Shore
Stabilization Act, which is paid by a
select group of homeowners identified
as living within the SAISSA assess-
ment area. These annual fees are col-
lected to provide annual beach renour-
ishment projects. It is important to
note that both of the above referenced
assessments were approved by the cit-
izens who are affected.
Collecting non-ad valorem special
assessments on the tax roll benefits
the county as well as the citizens. By
placing assessments on the tax roll
rather than sending out separate bills,
the county saves staff time and money
on printing and postage. The county, is,
also guaranteed a higher collection.
rate'The citizens benefit because they
only have pne annual bill to pay and. are
given a discount if paid early.
S, Florida Statute, Section 197.3632,
states that the local government is
allowed to use the uniform.method of
collecting nori-ad valorem special
assessments if the resolution is adopt-
ed at a public hearing prior to Jan. 1.
Nassau County held a public hearing
on Dec. 12, 2011, at 7 p.m. The public
hearing was dually advertised, in two
newspapers of general circulation from
Nov. 16 through Dec. 8, 2011. Again,
the adoption of the resolution only pro-
vides authority for the county to add
the special assessments to the tax roll.
Florida Statute requires that the special
assessment roll be approved by Sept.
15th 6f each year identifying the prop-
erty ID number of all propertieslto be
affected and the board usually does
this at a meeting in August. Please
note that all Board of County
Commissioners meeting agendas are
available for the public's view on our
website at www.nassaucountyfl.com.
If you have any questions regarding
the resolution electing to use the uni-
form method of collecting non-ad val-
orem special assessments; or any other
questions pertaining to taxes imposed
and collected by the Board of County
Commissioners, please, contact the
Office of Management & Budget at
491-7370. The board will also be hold-
ing budget workshops beginning
Wednesday, March 21, Citizens are
not only welcome but are encouraged


to attend.

Rally for Religious
Freedom
The recent Health and Human
Services mandate, as part of the Patient
Protection and Affordable Care Act,
requires all employer-provided insur-
ance to include no-deductible birth
control coverage. To set the record
straight, birth control has been avail-
able since the 1960's. Here we are
some 50 years later and now the gov-
ernment is going to require all employ-
ers to provide this coverage, for free,
no exceptions!
The Catholic Church and affiliated,
schools, hospitals and other agencies
have moral objections based on church
teachings. The church, as you may.
know, has simply asked for an exemp-
tion from this mandate period. Article
One of the Bill of Rights states in part
Congress shall make no law respecting
the establishment of religion, or pro-
hibiting the free exercise thereof. I
may only ask: How can the. Catholic
Church exercise their religious free-
dom when the government demands
they violate their conscience?
What rights will be violated next?
There will be a Rally for Religious
Freedom on Friday, March 23 at noon
at the Federal Courthouse, 300 N.
Hogan St., Jacksonville. Rallies will be
held throughout these United States of
America at other federal courthouses,
as well. Stand up for the Constitution!
Stand up for our rights as citizens of
this great nation. Stand up for free-
dom.

Forest Ridge facts
Why is it so hard? Your March 14
article about short-term rentals at
Forest Ridge Village is both factually
wrong and misleading ("Short-term
rentals get initial city OK'). First of all,
no one is asking for a change of zon-
ing. The city commission, 4-1,
approved an amendment to the Forest
Ridge Village 1982 PUD to be clear
that short-term rentals are permitted.
Forest Ridge Village is not zoned low
density residential. That was changed
by the PUD in 1982. In fact, we believe
a court would likely find that short-
term rentals have always been allowed
under the PUD, and are not illegal
even without an amendment to the
PUD. .
Forest Ridge didn't apply to be
"grandfathered" in 2000, since appar-
ent ly no one thought it was subject to
the "old" B-2 zoning restrictions that
had been supplanted by its high den-
sity PUD.
Short-term rentals have always
occurred at Forest Ridge. Why does
your article say that that the condo
regs did not permit such rentals? The
1983 condo rules and regulations, offi-
cially filed as part of the property
records (book 390, page 300), specif-


ically stated that "Units may not be
rented for less than a week." We don't
know the full history of wording of
the rules and regulations, but at least
since 2004, including right now, that
same provision has been and is in the
rules.'
Never, as far as anyone knows,
have short-term rentals been prohib-
ited, or limited to longer than a week,
in the rules and regulations. In fact, if
the restriction to a week or more dis-
appeared from the rules and regula-
tions for a while, the better interpre-
tation is that rentals of any period,
even one or two nights, were permit-
ted. Commissioner Pelican did ask if
a duplex owner could sue, as you state.
Why didn't you add the answer from
the city attorney- Anyone can sue, but
such a suit would be unlikely to have
merit or succeed.
However, the city attorney, in
response to a question from
Commissioner Bunch, which you do
not report, said she thought a suit by
Forest Ridge Village against the city
could occur should it now seek to pro-
hibit short-term rentals there and
could possibly succeed, given the his-,
tory and the precedent of Amelia
Landing. Your article is clearly mis-
leading on this point.
The box "Residents mixed on
rentals" is also misleading. No Forest
Ridge Village owner spoke against
short-term rentals before the city com-
mission. In the recent survey of own-
ers, 71 responded to Senior City
Planner Kelly Gibson; of those, only
eight opposed short-term rentals.
Thus 63 owners, or 90 percent, of
those who replied specifically sup-
ported the continuation of short-term
rentals, although the majority of them
have not rented short-term. That is
not a "mixed" result, but overwhelm-
ing support for short-term rentals by
any standard.
The first paragraph of your box
talks about "Forest Ridge Village con-
dominium owners" but the first person
you quote is not an owner, but a home-
owner in nearby Ocean Landing.
When those homes were built and
purchased in the mid 90's, short-term
rentals were occurring at Forest
Ridge, and had been occurring for 10
years.
Nothing has changed, or would
change. No new traffic, no more peo-
ple.
Parking has never beet a problem.
And the city attorney made clear that
this is not a precedent for any other
housing in the city since there are no
further PUDs, so she need not worry
about setting a precedent.
The paper is free to editorialize on
this or any other issue, but please,
news articles need to be fair, balanced
and factual. That's your civic respon-
sibility.

WEDNESDAY. MARC 121,2012 NEWS News-Leader


Bobcats abound


It seems to me like I get
reports of various animals in
clusters and these must mean
something, right? Well any-
way, in the early days of win-
ter I got a lot of reports about
bobcat sightings and a few
"long-tail large cat," sightings
as well. Most likely that is the
time these animals are mov-
ing around and we are more
likely to see them when they
cross roads, golf courses and
other open spots to get from
one wooded area to another.
Bobcats have large territo-
ries, and are known to move
around over large distances. It
just may be that a large bobcat
that Tom King and others
have noticed at-the Long Point
Golf Course at Amelia Island
Plantation on the south end of
the island was the same large
bobcat seen by Sammy
Alvarez and other golfers on
Amelia River Golf Club mid-
island. It may even have
showed up later that week in
Fort Clinch State Park or the
Egans Creek Greenway, other
areas where people often
report-bobcat sightings. Male.
bobcats, in particular, travel
long routes looking for mates,
and looking for areas not
already claimed by even big-
ger male bobcats.
Recently other golfers have
also reported seeing smaller
bobcats, and even one with a
half-grown kitten, like Sue
Lansdell reports she sighted
crossing Amelia Island
Parkway near the 11th hole of
the Golf Club of Amelia
Island. In mid-January Robert
Knight also reported a 20- to


WILD
WAYS

Pat
Foster- Turley


25-pound
bobcat that
was saunter-
ing around
at 5 p.m.
near the
north third
hole and was
totally unper-
turbed about
his pres-
ence.
Another
smaller bob-
cat was also
reported
mid-January


on the city golf course. She
told me that the groundskeep-
ers there see bobcats a few
times a week, and that last
year in the fall her friend
Linda Larabee even pho-
tographed one on the course.
Linda, thanks for the photo
you're sharing with our read-
ers of this column!
All of these golf course
sightings don't mean that bob-
cats especially like golf cours-
es. They are mostly looking
for wooded areas where they
can stay out of sight, and habi-
tat full of armadillos, rabbits,
birds and other small prey
items. But here on Amelia
Island, to get from one wood-
ed area to another, golf cours-
es are the path.
Sadly, though, these long
travels that bobcats and other
animals make along the
length of our island have pit-
falls for them. We have no
wildlife crossings on our
island to help them navigate
the roads that bisect their
paths. Sightings like Gary


lIapold's of a dead bobcat, a
small one, on Buccaneer Trail
between the Amelia River and
city golf courses in early
January are reported too.
What is even more intrigu-
ing to me these days are the
increasingly credible sight-
ings of a wild cat that is as
large or larger than a big bob-
cat, but has a long tail, about
two-thirds the length of its
head and body. A bobcat's tail
is much shorter in proportion
to its body size, although in
some cases it maybe a foot or
so long. If you do see a large
wild cat, check out its tail
which, unlike that of a bobcat,
can drape all the way to the
ground if it's a cougar.
Various people that 1
respect for their nature lore
here on Amelia Island have
told me that they are sure
they have seen a Florida pan-
ther (akac.ougar) and not a
bobcat at one time or another.
It is very difficult to prove this
" without a photo or a roadkill
in hand, since depending on
the substrate the tracks of a
large bobcat may resemble
those of a smallish cougar.
Florida panthers generally
prefer larger prey like wild
hogs and deer, both of which
can be found at Fort Clinch
State Park and the Egans
Creek Greenway. But there is
not enough prey there to sup-
port a cougar or a cougar fam-
ily for very long, and when
and if they are seen in our
area, they are most likely
passing through. This is not
as unlikely as it may seem.
Although cougars are very


LINDA LARABEE/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
Bobcats are frequently seen on golf courses around Amelia Island. Linda Larabee pho-
tographed this bobcat strolling across the Golf Club of Amelia Island in fall 2010.


rare'in Florida, they do travel
significant distances from
their prime habitat in South
Florida and there are credible
reports of sightings in Nassau
County, around Gainesville,
St. Augustine and other loca-
tions further removed.
So folks, continue to keep
your eyes open for the large
cats in our area. If you are


lucky, someday you'll see a
bobcat, especially if you are
around golf courses and natu-
ral habitats in the early morn-
ing and late evening when
cats are most likely to be mov-
ing'around and looking for
prey. And if you are really,
really, really lucky (I've never
been so fortunate) just maybe
you might see a Florida pan-


other. If you do, take a photo,
pat yourself on the back for
your good fortune and send
me an email. I can't wait to get
proof

gist on Amelia Island. She wel-

Essay winner: What Freedom Means to Me'


The Boys & Girls Club on
Old Nassauville Road is
named the Miller Freedom
Center. The founding gift was
donated by David E Miller
Sr., whose concern for the
betterment of young people is
almost equaled by his devo-
tion to the ideals of freedom
that set America apart as a
nation. So Miller urged the
staff of the club to organize a
contest for members that:
would let them explore those
ideals and then express their
understanding in the form of
an essay.
'The Freedom Essay con-
test was entered by 50 young
people from both the Miller
Club and the Fernandina
Beach Club, ages 8 and up. It
was supervised by the Miller
Club Unit Director Jamie
Thompson, and the leader of
the arts program, David
Bryan.
The source material and
inspiration provided to the
entrants was a brochure that
describes the basis for each
of the 16 plaques mounted
around the Miller Club build-
ing. Those plaques display
quotes from the founders of
Amherica's freedom and from
those who have fought to
maintain it right up to the
present time- Jefferson's
Declaration of Independence,
Lincoln's Gettysburg
Address, King's I Have a
Dream to name a few.
The outpouring of
thoughts about freedom from
the kids overwhelmed the ,
judges. Prizes were awarded


for 36 essays. Five of those
were judged exceptional,
"Strong Contenders." Three
essays were written by Miller
Club members Michael
Kozakoff, Jenna Lusardi and
Dezaray Dean. Two came
from Fernandina Beach Club
members Trinity Wilson and
Lauren Williams.
But the first prize went to
Elise Sancey, a 10-year-old
girl who attends Yulee
Elementary School. Her
essay is so remarkable that it'
deserves to be quoted in full:

"What Freedomn
Means to Me"
BY ELISE SANCEY
Freedom is a cascading
Swaterfall.Jt is something you
,should never forget. We must
reemember the Declaration of
Independence and everything
that happened to win us inde-
pendence including war.
Freedom is as a cascading
waterfall because it never
stops.,When the water hits
the wet rocks, there is a loud
bar,! Just like when the peo-,
ple hit, that Declaration of '
Independence with their pen!
Here is the influence of the
Declaration of Independence.


It changed our nasty world
into a beautiful world of free-
dom, the United States of
America. Freedom drove
Abraham Lincoln to stop slav-
ery.
Here is what was accom-
plished: the waterfall, with its
continual falling smoothes the
rocks below, in the same way
the rough edges of the USA
became a little smoother
because of it, freedom came
into our towns because of it,
and with a swoosh, the blue
water went down the river,
out of the shining rocks that
were confronted with the sun.
It was like the peacefulness
after all of the war was over,
and there was liberty in the
United States of America.
Because of what is written in
the Declaration of
Independence you now have
the ability to speak, choose
your own wife or husband, go
to whichever school you like,
buy whatever you want, state
your beliefs, follow your own
religion, moveto different
house whenever you want to,
and choose your own job. ,
This is why you should
never forget freedom. Finally
there is light as the morning
sun comes up, looking for-
ward to a new day. With liber-
ty and justice for all.

JONES FOR HARTLEY


SUBMITTED
Former state legislator Marilyn Evans-Jones, founder of
the Nassau County Republican Party, has endorsed :
Chris Hartley for sheriff in the 2012 election. She said
the former law enforcement officer and business owner
could lead "the sheriff's office forward and start a new
era. I think that the time to move beyond the good ol'
boy system is upon us and I believe that you are the
man that should lead the movement. The county needs -
new ideas and new policies; this comes only with new
leadership. Nassau County needs Chris Hartley, not a
career politician."

SBoth the uphill and the downhill bunker shots provide different challenges, but both
can be addressed to provide an easy solution. For the uphill bunker shot, address
the ball with it forward in your stance and your shoulders tilted more than normal.
You do this with your shoulders in order to hit through the ball without digging too
much sand out as you make your swing on the ball. There can be no denying that
the downhill bunker shot is the more difficult of the two shots. The biggest problem
that the amateur golfer has is getting the ball up quick enough to get it out of the bunker. Your
hands need to be ahead of the ball to create a descending blow. The most important aspect is
that you have to hit the ball with authority to get it out of the bunker rapidly..

Paddle fishing has
grown in popularity
with fish jumps and
lots of paddle splash-
ing during recent years.
When the case of stocking
shallow water gamefish that
tends to spook easily, whisper
quiet paddling is preferred.
Mike Kogan directs the
annual Jacksonville Kayak '
Fishing Classic, which has
grown in popularity since its
-2005 inception. The first
event drew some 100 kayak-
ers, even with winds gusting
to 25 knots. Ken Martin was
the first winner with a 24.5-
inch redfish and a 17.25-inch
sea trout.
During each following
year the.Jacksonville Kayak
Classic has grown by leaps,
bounds and lots of paddling.
During the 2010 event 430
kayakers participated and
Fernandina Beach's Ryanr
Conner won the event.
This year's event will take
place May 12.
Kayakers may launch their
paddleboats anywhere they
please with fishing beginning
at safe sunrise. The official
weigh-in incorporates kayak-
ers returning to the designat-
ed tournament location with a
chip from their digital cam-
era. Fishermen simply take
photos of their catch with
their fish lying on a measur-
ing board, including the tour-
naments official logo. All
catches are then released.

-while either fishing or pad-
dling," Conner said. "My
"Diablo Adios has a 36-inch
beani that promotes a very
stable platform for both fish-
ing and paddling. Also unique
is that fishermen do not sit
down in the kayak, but sit on
a regular chair that has a
raised seat for better comfort
and, more importantly,
affords for more efficient
casting and sight fishing"-
"I actually kayak fished out
of Fernandina Beach during
the IFA Kayak Fishing
Tournament," Conner said.
'The winds were not blowing
quiet as hard as they were on


Saturday, but we did have
winds blowing up to. 15 knots,
which made kayaking to my
favorite iedfish and sea trout
waters more challenging than
usual. My stable Diablo kayak
was a tremendous asset when
navigating deep rough chan-
nels and .allowing me to catch,

Caden is a 6-month-old
black Labrador retriever mix.
Caden is housebroken, knows
some of his basic commands
and is just a joy to have
around. He gets along beauti-
fully with other dogs. Caden
already weighs 51 pounds so
we anticipate him to be a
rather large boy. He is "'

shots and current on heart-
worm and flea preventative.
Caden will be at the Nassau

looking for a quiet and loving
furry friend, Polly would
make a wonderful companion.
