Waterfront park



for everybo y'


*ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader


An updated conceptual waterfront
plan that includes a continuous-loop
boardwalk and an elevated pedestrian
crossover at the boat ramp was pre-
sented to city commissioners at a spe-
cial meeting Thursday.,
The Waterfront park plan also
includes a water feature that may be
able to serve as a stormwater runoff
area, but the concept must still meet
approval by the St. Johns River Water
Management District.
A special advisory committee
recently appointed by city commis-
sioners developed the updated plan.
Commissioners did hot give full'
approval to the plan, but voted 3-2 to
direct Interim City Manager Dave Lott
to develop cost estimates within the
next 45 days, and for the city's civil
engineering firm Zev Cohen to explore
stormwater options with the water
management district. Commissioner
Sarah Pelican and Vice Mayor Jeffrey
Bunch,voted against

Cotner, a local architect, and Curtis
Burkette of Zev Cohen made the pres-

entation to commissioners. Other
members of the committee, which was
.formed to update a waterfront park
plan from 2009, were local engineer
Nick Gillette, architect Jose Miranda
and Planning Advisory Board Vice
Chair Eric Bartelt.
Cotner emphasized that what the
committee came up with was not a new
plan, but a revised one based on some
unexpected changes such as the boat
ramp location and the imminent open-
ing of Alachua Street The original plan,
one of many developed for the water-
front, was the result of a collaboration
between the Waterfronts Florida
Partnership Committee and the Parks

How much to pay


new city
ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
City commissioners discussed the
compensation and benefits package
lui the new cily manageri.g. who v.ill bte
chosen within the next couple of
months, at a special meeting Thursday.
According to Interim City Manager
Dave Lott, the city had received 47
resumes so far from applicants inter-
ested in filling the position vacated by
Michael Czymbor in January. Deadline
to apply is this week.
After a sometimes-heated discus-
sion, commissioners finally conceded
to terms of a compensation/benefits
package that will be offered to the high-
est ranked candidate. Much of the dis-
cussion centered on the manager's
annual salary.
Commissioner Tim Poynter said
the range should be between $81,000
and $125,000, depending on the final
candidate's qualifications.
"We want to get qualified people to
want to do (this job),' Poynter said.
"For $50,000 to $65,000 I'm not sure
we'll get anybody."
"I think ($125,000) is too high,"


manager?
Commissioner Charles Corbett said,
noting that former city manager
Czymbor made about $108,000 annu-
ally plus benefits and perks. "We
should make (the maximum salary)
$110,000."
"I suggest we don't limit ourselves
to too low of a figure," Poynter said.
City Clerk Mary Mercer also noted
the highest paid director in the city
makes $98,000,
"What is the average salary for a
person living in Fernandina Beach?"
Commissioner Sarah Pelican asked.
"Just finding out that the highest per-
son in the city makes $98,000 in this
economy is shocking. ... I'm sure we
can find qualified applicants quite
happy to do the job for $80,000."
Vice Mayor Jeffrey Bunch said that,
looking at what the previous city man-
ager made, he was happy with $115,000
as a maximum salary.
"Why limit ourselves?" asked
Poynter. "This is just a range. We don't
know (who we will choose) because
this is just exploratory right now. Why
.not expand (the salary range) to get-as

Jt seemed like it was just yesterday I
that we talked and laughed together.
It's so hard to believe that you are
really gone and that It has been a
year since I last saw your smile or
( heard your voice. You left so many
Memories which will always be In us
and a part of us for a lifetime. We are -
thankful to God that he blessed us to 'Vs,-
have such a GREAT man as our father 1/25/1956

Thoughts of you are on our hearts
and mind daily because remembering
you brings our heart joy. I remember
your walk, your talk, your laughter,
your sense of humor, your strong
hands and strong faith in God. When
the tears begin to fall I can always hear
you saying "Be Strong, I'm alright".
m L Remembering you is very easy but the
heartache of losing you is sometimes
too much to bear.

S, We are gonna be strong not for us but for you because I
know how you taught us to handle things like a man and.
woman should do. You fought a good battle called life on
daily basis but you won the battle when you went home to
rest. I called you "Pops" and Sis called you "Dad" but no

Alloyd Lutz
Alloyd "Lhlly" Lutz passed
from this life on March 23rd at
her home on Amelia Island -
she was 93.
Born December 1, 1918 in
Dallas, Texas, she earned her
first paycheck at the age of two
and half when she performed a
solo toe dance
in the operetta
"Wang" at the
Municipal
Opera in St.
Louis, Mis-
souri, and she
has been danc-
ing ever since. The single sus-
taininig quality of her life was
her love of music .and she
described her life as "one long
melody." Second only to music
was her love of dancing, and she
was an accomplished ballroom
dancer. Her memories of grow-
ing up, and she had almost total
recall, could make an interesting
book.
In. 1925, she and her family
took a three-nonth cruise down
the Mississippi River on their
68-foot yacht from St. Louis to
New Orleans, where the family
lived for several years in the his-
toric Pontalba Building in
Jackson Square. After a major
hurricane, the family moved to
Oklahoma City where "Lolly"
lived until the age of 25 when
she moved back to Texas.
She worked for Douglas
Aircraft Company and then on to
Humble Oil and Refining Com-
pany (now known as Exxon)
until she retired. While work-
ing for Exxon, she reunited with
a childhood friend, Kenneth
Lutz. He became the love of her
life; they were married in 1973
and lived in Baton Rouge,
Louisiana. While in Baton
Rouge, she and Ken enjoyed
participating with various
krewes in the annual festivities
of Mardi Gras.
Ken and "Lolly" moved to
Amelia Island in 1994 where
they immediately formed life-
long friendships. Alloyd was a
member of the Golf Club of
Amelia and the First Church of
Christ, Scientist of Jacksonville
Beach.
Alloyd embraced Christian
Science at an early age and was
a devout member of that faith.
She served as First Reader of
the churches in both Baytown,
TX, and Baton Rouge, LA.
Christian Science was at the.
very essence of her being and
she considered her introduction
to it as one of the most wonder-
ful things that ever happened in
her life.
Loved ones welcoming her
to heaven are her parents, At
and Natalie Bartlett, sister,
Delma Garrigan, Alloyd's hus-
band Kenneth Lutz and her eld-
est daughter, Carol Lea Walters.
She is survived by her dau-
ghter, Dee Bowers Chaplin and
husband Davis of Fernandina
Beach, FL, son-in-law Jerry
Walters of Jacksonville Beach,
FL; 'three grandchildren -*
Bambi Walters Emmet of
Peachtree City, GA, Brandon
Walters and wife Whitney of.
Greer, SC, and Cameron
Bowers and wife Laura of
Amelia Island, FL and five great


grandchildren Jonathon,
Austin and Madison Emmet and
Avery and Sutton Walters.
Love to Ian Charlton, fellow
Christian Scientist, friend, com-
panion and dance partner for
the past 11 years.
In lieu of customary remem-
brances, the family wishes that
you make a contribution to the
charity of your choice.
And Love is Reflected in .

PARK Continued from 1A
plans for the downtown water-
front.
Cotner said the advisory
committee had heard from
special interest groups in the
city, including downtown mer-
chants, charter fishing own-
ers, p6tanque enthusiasts and
environmentalists, among oth-
ers.
For the conceptual plan,
the advisory group considered
elements desired by the com-
munity, such as historical and
cultural information, gather-
ing spots, scenic views, activi-
ty areas, passive/contempla-
tive areas and a performance
venue.
"This is a park for every-
body," Cotner said. "It's a mul-
tifunction type of facility.... It
benefits the community with a
cross-section of uses." '
Cotner said the plan
includes 144 parking spaces
with allowances for boat trail-
ers and other types of vehi-
cles, which he said was com-
parable to the number of
spaces that are available now.
Other elements in the con-
ceptual plan include trolley and
motorcycle parking at Parking -
Iot A and relocation of the vet-
erans' memorial to a plazi clos-
er to the boardwalk. A traffic
circle has also been designed
at the end of Centre Street that
features an eight-flags display.
The design includes shade
trees and wedge parks in dif-
ferent areas, as-well as prom-
enades, fountains, pergolas
and benches.
A viewing pier has been
located near the boat ramp,
which for now will stay where
it is. There has been a plaza
added as an approach to the
boat ramp, and the boardwalk
adjacent has been expanded. A
raised bridge was also added
at the end of the boat ramp so
the boardwalk can be used as
a continuous pedestrian loop
around the park.
The south end of the park
includes a splash fountain and
plaza, a picnic and playground
area, a party/wedding pavil-
ion and performance pavilion.
An area has also been desig-
nated as a sports court as well
as a space for community gar-
dens. There is also a turn-

to assist McCormick. -
Kirkland, who yelled for
help, told police McCormick
was unable to stay above the
surf and said that he was able to
grab him at one point, but was
unable to hang onto him.
His second attempt to grab
the teen was unsuccessful and
he couldn't prevent him from
sinking beneath the water's sur-
face, he told police. Kirkland

around at the end of the park
for emergency use.
Cotner said the Atlantic
Bait & Seafood building is in
an awkward place in relation to
the park concept and that
future plans should "think
about a way that might be
resolved with regard to the
lease." The seafood/bait retail
business currently rents the
building from the city.
Cotner also said the plan
called for Front Street to be
one way from the Port of
Fernandina to Parking Lot A.
When asked if the street could
be designed as a two-way,
Cotner said doing so would
eliminate street parking and
interfere with pedestrian walk-
ways.
"There's still room for dis-
cussion," Cotner said. "It can
be done either way." -
Lott said later that it had
not yet been determined
whether the city would pur-
chase.a property owned by
Rayonier that would be used
for stormwater runoff. He said
Burkett of Zev Cohen would
be reevaluating with the water
management district if the
Rayonier parcel is needed, or
if stormwater can be ,managed
by the water feature element
within the park.
Cotner said later that there
was a question as to whether
purchase of the Rayonier prop-
erty was necessary.
"With the green area and
water feature, we can collect
runoff from the'park improve-
ments," he said.
Commissioner Sarah Peli-
can said the plan looked a lot
like the original plan, "with all
the bells and whistles, rather
than what's more manage-
able." .
"This has everything, with,
no limit to the cost," Pelican
said. "I feellike it's a little over
the top."
"We've produced for you a
shopping list," Cotner told
commissioners at the meet-
ing. "You decide what's a prag-
matic choice. Like all projects
out there, something gets cut.
.... It's a very simple plan. It
has been scaled down, mini-
mized and simplified, and
pulled down to a plan that sat-
isfies the comments we hear at
a rate that is reasonable."


Authorities and beachgoers
lined the shore during the
search as aircraft and watercraft
dispatched,by, several agencies'
- the Fernandina Beach Police
Department, Fernandina Beach
Fire Rescue, the Nassau County,
Sheriff's Office, U.S. Coast
Guard and the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Commission in a joint
effort, combed the area where
McCormick was last seen, after
swimmers cleared the water at
the request of police.
Hurley said the rescuers'

many people as we can?"
Commissioners eventually
agreed to a salary range of
$80,000 to $115,000, with no
cost of living raises but with
merit and performance-based
raises available.
Commissioners also dis-
cussed whether the new man-
ager should be automatically
vested in a retirement plan, or
should wait a few years as other
employees do.
They conceded the benefit
package should include four
personal days, accrued sick
leave and 15 vacation days, plus
a $300 monthly vehicle
allowance. They also agreed to
medical insurance paid 100 per-
cent by the 4ity for the individ-
ual 'and 55 percent paid by the
city for dependents, 100 per-
cent of annual salary for life
insurance, plus.$2,000 for pro-
fessional' development and
$1,200 for community organi-
zation membership fees.
Commissioners could not
agree on how much the new
city manager should contribute
to a retirement account and the
vesting period for the account.
Lott said the 47 resumes
would be sent to Paul Sharon of
the International City Managers
Association for ranking, and city
commissioners will then rank
the applicants on their own. Five
finalists will then be chosen in ,
early May and interviewed indi-
vidually by each commi'ssion-
er, Lott said, with an opportunity
for the public to meet the can-
didates and give their own feed-
back.
Commissioners also con-
ceded Lott should stay on dur-
ing the upcoming budget
process. Pointer suggested the
city manager selection process
be delayed until after the
budget is finalized, but most
other commissioners dis-
agreed.

efforts of the agencies and indi-

Bogle said it's important for
beachgoers and parents to be
mindful of the risks associated
with the ocean,'and encouraged
swimmers to pay special

signs posted at beach accesses
before their next dip.
Flags also are posted to warn

Don't bite hand that feeds


GARRITT PELICAN
News Leader
Nassau' County Commis-
sioners refunded a $200 zon-
ing appeal fee to the owner of
one of their favorite eateries
last week.
Commissioners voted 3-1
Wednesday to return the fee
to Eileen Teston, owner of
Shucker's Oyster Bar, despite
opposition from Commissioner
Steve Kelley. Commissioner
Danny Leeper was absent.
The county commissioners
regularly dine together at
Shucker's, especially after their
Wednesday meetings.
County Manager Ted Selby
said the Planning & Zoning
Board, which approved
Teston's appeal, recommend-
ed refunding the fee.
Commission Chair Stacy
Johnson told the board she
did not want to set a precedent
of returning fees. "I don't
want to get into the business
of just, refunding appeal


fees," she said.
Kelley echoed her con-
cerns. "We're going to get into
a bad precedence here," he
said. "... That fee is determined
at what it costs staff to lake that
through the appeal process, so
we have done our work. She
won, she prevailed and I'm
excited she did, but whether
she prevailed or not, our staff
did the task they were asked to
perform. And they have
expended $200 worth of serv-
ice."
Commissioner Walter Boat-
right likened the practice of
keeping fees from successful
appeals to being forced to pay
a traffic fine even if found not
guilty of an infraction because
a state trooper spent gas and
resources in issuing the ticket.
"I know that we have
expenses tied up in it," he
said. "... If I remember, cor-
rectly, the Planning & Zoning
Board voted originally the
first time to grant this request
and it was staff that denied it"


after the vote.
Kelley disagreed and said
the fee was more akin to court
costs than traffic fines.
The issue stems from
Teston's Jan. 13 appeal of
Interim Growth Management
Director Peter King's refusal
to sign off on a special liquor
license application for the bar
located at 942699 Old
Nassauville Road. Among other
reasons, the restaurant's site
plan lists 60 seats and 2,700
square feet of service area, but
the license requires 200 seats
and 4,000 square feet of service
area, King wrote in a Jan. 30
email to Clerk of Courts John
Crawford.
Teston had since amended
her application to say the
restaurant had the required
seating and space, King added,
but county records showed no
new site plans or amendments
to the current site plan indi-
cating the issue had been
remedied.

Eclectic and elegant antiques on island


11A/'TI IER A. PERRY
News Leader

Betty Philipps first started
her antique business 18 years
ago and had a store on Eighth
Street for eight years.
When asked how she got
started in antiques, Philipps
replied, "It's an addiction. For
me it began in 1967 when I
found 'a period bowl that
looked like one my mother
used to use at holiday gather-
ings. That got me started col-
lecting Depression glass and
it just took off from there."
Co-owner Mercedes
Deacon first met Philipps
when the antique store was in
what used to be the old
Hardee's restaurant.
"Mercedes came in shop-
ping and of course, you know,
it's like old home week when
you meet someone who
shares the same passion you
do."
Deacon and Philipps
joined forces, with Deacon
seeking out the elegant items
and Philipps going a more
eclectic route.
They do all the buying for,
the shop, traveling all over to
find unique pieces. Their'
antique expeditions take them
to Texas, Louisiana,
Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana and
Missouri.
"We have a good eye for
the unique and unusual," said
Deacon. "And contacts all
over the country who let us

know when something differ-
ent comes along."
Tucked away beside First
Coast Highway, Amelia Island,
Antiques is a little mint green
building chock full of treas-
ures.
"This building has been a


hardware store, small
engine repair shop and a fur-
niture store. It may also
have been a gas station in the
'40s," said Philipps of the loca-
tion.
The partners offer a vari-
ety of goodies in addition to


antiques. Browsers will find
architectural salvage, col-
lectibles, quilts, jewelry, furni-
ture, old photos and books
and much more.
With help from their hus-
bands and two friends who
love antiques, Philipps and


Deacon feed their addictions
by doing estate sales and.
moving sales. When new
items are acquired, photos
are posted on their Facebook
page.

Tebow

Few can successfully take a
bite out of the "Big Apple."
Tim Tebow is someone who
can. He has the appetite, the
personal utensils and now the
opportunity as a member of the
New York Jets football team.
The failure of the Jackson-
ville Jaguars to acquire Tebow
has left a bad taste in the
mouths of local fans. Unfortu-
nately, it will be permanent for
many.
They'll be talking for years
not only about the Jaguars'
unwillingness to draft Tebow
two years ago, but-about the
insult added to that injury. The
decision by Jaguars' team offi-
cials to let the Jets outbid them
is inexcusable.
As a franchise on the ropes
in sports parlance, the Jaguars
could have used a boost to their
struggling attendance. Tebow
would have singularly delivered
that a prodigal son returning
home where he established his
reputation at Nease High
School and expanded it at the
University of Florida.
He has since broadened his
fame and brought
"Tebowmania" to the national
level with his last-minute hero-
ics with the Denver Broncos
last season. He single-handedly
led a moribund team to a play-
off victory over the vaunted
Pittsburgh Steelers.
The failure to acquire Tebow
contradicts the promise of new
Jaguars' owner Shahid Khan to
do what it takes to bring a win-
ning and entertaining team
here to a city hungering for one.
After all, it would have only
taken a few lower-round draft
picks to get Tebow, and not.
some break-the-bank amount of
money.
- Denver Broncos' general
manager John Elway never did
like Tebow. You could tell by
Elway's reaction each time
Tebow would rally the Broncos
to another victory. Elway hard-
ly looked happy even after the
playoff victory, when Tebow
tossed a perfect pass for the win
in overtime.
And for Elway to say it was
Tebow's decision to head off to
New York instead, of here to
Jacksonville is hard to believe.
Tebow himself said he was
never conferred on the deci-
sion. His friends said he wanted
to come- home. His fame;and
reputation as awholesome per-
son would follow him here to
Jackson-ville; the stage just
wouldn't be as grand as in New

Superstar
singer Katy Perry has flirted

will now meet Linsanity, the
name of the furor caused by
Jeremy Lin of the New York
Knicks basketball team. It will
be a beautiful courtship for the
city. (That city, not our city.)
Let's face it. Sports are enter-
tainment. Sports are not life or
death, or war (with apologies
to New York Giants or
Philadelphia Eagles fans). We
watch sports to be entertained,
as a diversion from everyday
life.
The Jaguars are failing in
this area. You can see how few
of the Jaguars players appear
on local television commercials,
like Mark Brunell and Tony
Boselli did in the franchise's
heyday. Jaguars fans hunger for
.entertainment. The latest fran-
chise quarterback, Blaine
Gabbert, has hardly provided
it so far. He follow in the slip-
pery footsteps of preceding

Apple'

franchisec" quarterbacks Byron
lIetwich and David Garrard.
Maybe it's because Gabbert
looks like a -deer in the head-
lights when the opponent's
rushers confront him.
Khan is aware that he can
move the Jaguars out of
Jacksonville in three years with-
out much financial penalty,
based upon some quirky NFL
formula. The Jaguars will have
to perform poorly in a financial
sense for the next few years for
Khan to be able to move them.
This goes hand in hand with
performing poorly on the field.
The franchise took a step in
that direction when it failed to
land Tebow. Hiring Mike
Mularkey, an NFL retread, as
the head coach was hardly a
blockbuster decision. The team
needs a healthy dose of excite-
ment, of innovation.
Why would you not move in
that direction with the player
whose jersey was the No. 2 sell-
er in all of the NFL last year?
Whose presence in Denver
prompted businesspeople to put
up billboards in his support.
Arid who had a lucrative eco-
nomic impact on that team, that
city.
Now, that euphoria will trans-
fer to a receptive New York City.
It could have come here. Call it
the bite of disappoiAtment.

OPINION


VIEWPOINT/GC I \SllM' !'N Ji NINM ()NI\M


School district adversarial'?


Iam Ii taot(1or Iln'WS
reporter for this publica-
tion, the News-Leader. My
husband and I have a
child enrolled at Yulee Middle
School. While working at the
News-Leader from 2004-8 my
editor assigned me to cover
the Nassau County School
District. My identity is well
known to high-level school
district officials. And recently
following the high profile
lockdown March 8 at Yulee
Middle ("Lockdown at Yulee
school," March 9), I have
begun to feel a little paranoid,
as if "somebody's watching
me."
A March 22 traffic stop
during my routine weekday
morning drive to school
roused my suspicions. It
reminded me that the school
district has.served notice that
school administrators will
keep an eye out for parents
and students who could


potentially make their jobs
more difficult. And while my
imagination leads me to
believe that my previous pro-
fessional affiliation puts me
more at risk for some sort of
spy thriller undercover sur-
veillance, everyone who cares
about the local public schools
should be concerned.
In the wake of the lock-
down, district officials admon-
ished parents to better moni-
tor their children's use of
social media because it has
caused the school district
problems. More troubling
still, they also informed par-
ents to be aware that law
enforcement and school
administrators can access
Facebook. The site drew the.
school district's ire because of
comments posted there by
parents and students that
seemingly inflamed tensions
already smoldering at the
school. And as if to further

i Illiiill'I pd il'eplnts ant d stu-
dents, school officials warned
that tlley have the authority to
take :c li'u against students
for Facebook posts. To make
its point, the school district
has exercised its prerogative
to turn over parents' posts to
the sheriff if the comments
are false or could create seri-
ous repercussions, the New-
Leader reported.
The message coming from
the Nassau County School '
District seems to me adver-
sarial in tone and not one con-
ducive to building a construc-
tive relationship with students
and students' parents. How
far will the district's infringe-
ment on the right to free
speech extend? District offi-
cials imply that those who use
Facebook, which is essential-
ly a digital party line, to gos-
sip about incidents at the
schools (including student
fights and teachers allegedly
caught engaged in sexual
activity on the school's cam-
pus) bear full responsibility
for school discipline gone
awry. So when the school dis-
trict fails to properly handle
its business, parents and stu-
dents should take the blame.
'Meanwhile, two teachers,
caught at Yulee Middle
School in a compromising
position, have since resigned
without any apparent repri-
mand or notification to the
Florida Department of
Education regarding their
misconduct. What a way for
the school district to set an
example for students and
other educators about the
consequences of inappropri-
ate behavior.
As the parents of a child
who has been blessed with
excellent teachers at every
Yulee school, my husband
and I would not.change much
about the experiences we
have had at the school level. I
do, however, have a less than
favorable view of the Nassau
County School Board after
witnessing the professional
disenfranchisement ofmore


than one family member, for-
mer instructional employees
who acted as whistleblowers
and, stood up against school
district officials. My sister lost
her job with the district as a
28-year veteran teacher after
she, refused to resign follow-
ing a.dubious.unsatisfactory
evaluation. So when the
March 8, 2012, school board
minutes report, "It was sug-
gested that policy, procedure
and handbooks let the stu-
dents know that 'big brother
is watching,'" it reinforces my
view of the district as using an
autocratic system for sup-
pressing the truth, silencing
criticism and punishing dis-:
sent.
As for my traffic stop and
what it has to do with "big
brother," the Nassau County
Sheriff's deputy stopped me,
he said, for driving too fast
through the school zone into
Yulee Middle School.
The deputy, a resource
officer at the school, pulled
me over for this violation
, almost 15 minutes later, after
I had dropped off my child,
parked my car, gone into the
school office, gotten back into
my car and was leaving the
school lot. The deputy, who
did not'use a radar gun to
clock my speed, had been
/ directing traffic and told me
he did not stop me earlier
because he "was busy." He
also stopped me because my
tag was too dirty to read, he
told me.
My license and proof of
insurance came back clean
after the deputy ran a check
on them. Grateful that I did
not receive a ticket for either
infraction, I carefully drove
away. But given the odd
nature of the traffic stop, I
could not help but wonder if I
am marked with a bulls-eye
on my back.for being a for-
mer practicing-media profes-
sional and the vigilant parent
of a child in the local school
district. If you fit the second
part of that profile, maybe you
.shouttld wonder, too: !

CatsAn els
responds
Re: "Cats Angels cost me
money," March 21.
(The letter writer) called
Cats Angels about her com-
plaint. We returned her phone
call. She vented and we were.
not given the opportunity to
address her concerns before
she hung up. Here are the
facts:
Cats Angels does not start
cat colonies. We practice
"Trap-Neuter-Return to
Caregivers," which is recog-
nized worldwide as a method"
to humanely control the feline
population.
(The letter writer) does
have a neighbor who called
Cats Angels for help with
her cat situation. We respond-
ed by trapping, testing/
spaying/neutering/vaccinat-
ing for distemper, rabies, flea
and parasitic prevention. We
returned the healthy cats to
the caregiver upon her
request.
(The letter writer) needs
to go talk to her neighbor with
her concerns instead of accus-
ing an organization that works
tirelessly to decrease the num-
ber of unwanted felines in
Nassau County.

No'cat colonies'
We have lived in the
Nassauville area for 16 years.
The first eight of those years
we spent battling a stray cat
problem due to bad neighbors
that had litter after litter of-cats
they did not care for. To the
point they were destroying the
duct work under our home
and even to the point of having
a litter of kittens end up in one
of our, walls.
After getting traps from
Animal Control to catch them,
only to be told by Cat-Angels
to relocate them. Now you
want cat colonies! Why don't
you start them in your neigh-
bor hood and notioursIJf.we
again have a stray cat prob-
lem due to your colonies, we

In defense of Cats
Angels
I am writing in response to
(the March 21 Voice of the
People) complaint about Cats
Angels.
I took some time to
research the toxicity of cat
feces to dogs. Dogs apparent-
ly eat their own and the feces
of other animals routinely.
It appears that cat feces
containing litter is harmful
because of the litter compo-
nent. Otherwise it is not harm-
ful unless rabies is present. Of
course feral cats do -not use
litter, as you know.
Cats Angels spay or neuter
the cats and give rabies shots
to all who are treated at their
facility.
They generally return the
cats to their previous envi-
ronment.
When we moved here in
2006 there were seven feral
cats happily breeding. What
to do? We called Cats Angels
and paid dearly to have the
cats treated. They returned
five of them to us and put two
up for adoption. Now there are
3 spayed females left. We pro-
vide food and fresh water. Had
we not done this there would
be many more cats in our
neighborhood, roaming for
food.
Unlike (the letter writer), I
like dogs as well. We have
many dogs in our neighbor-
hood and we live and let live
together harmoniously.

Wonderful
experence
Two weeks ago, my family
and I traveled to Yulee, to
Nassau County Animal
Services. We were in search of
the perfect family addition. It
was such a pleasant experi-
ence. The staff and volunteers
were very attentive to my
,daughters' desire to, see sev-
eral different'dogs. I appreci-
ated the fact that they didn't
rush or pressure us into mak-
ing a decision. We were asked
questions of things we were
looking'for in a dog and then
shown ones that fit our
description. In the end, we
came home with a beautiful
husky. So, thanks guys at,
Nassau County' Animal
Services! Our new family
member, Ishka, is a perfect
fit!!

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


When will
we everlearn?
I despise bigotry in every shape,
form or fashion. In the recent case in
Sanford concerning the death of
Treyvon Martin by George Zimmer-
man, I continue to be concerned that
we, as whites, continue to profile
many blacks as somehow inferior
and potentially dangerous. I am mak-
ing an assumption that this murder
could be the result of racial profiling.
Many of us (whites) continue to
sense that a hooded black, or what-
ever the case, is automatically sus-
pect, particularly as in this case in
,1iiSanfordor'in' similar cases, hrough-
out the South.
I grew u13 in Georgia in
Washington County, and the popu-
lation in the school system was 63
percent black. When the schools
integrated and many whites fled our
public schools, we were able to main-
tain two-thirds of our white students
in our public schools. It was a good
system and I hoped that each year it
would improve. As superintendent of
schools, I attempted my entire 20
years to instill in all my students and
faculty a sense of fairness and equal-
ity. I would accept no less than that
standard. That had never been the
case. I think that I retired from this
school system with the knowledge
that fairness to all should be a given
and that my efforts had not been in
vain.
From the viewpoint of the father
and mother ofTreyvon, they felt that
they had to constantly teach their
son to be on guard around whites
because it had been their experience
(and that of many blacks) that any
altercation between the races would
not be good and would normally ben-
efit the white's opinion on-the par-
ticular altercation or conflict.
We must teach that all God's chil-
dren are indeed special. In our casu-
al conversations, even with friends,
we should always side with what is
right and not what might be expedi-
ent. Yes, there are good people who
care about race-relations, but there
are too few of us who speak out
against racial bias, bigotry and injus-
tice.
I don't know how this case in
Sanford will be adjudicated, but I do
hope that justice will prevail. I also
hope that we all teach our children
about racial equality and religious
tolerance. I don't teach.my children
that our r-eligion is superior or that
other religions are bad and should be
frowned upon.
And when will we as a society
ever learn how to treat other peo-
ple equally who might be ,different
from us? Many of us continue to be
prejudiced despite going to church
and learning the love that we should
have toward others. My church,
Memorial United Methodist, teach-
es that love is all-powerful as the
scripture depicts and dictates. How
long will we remain ignorant and
silent on these issues? And yes, I
want my country to be led by leaders
who value all races and creeds and.
not just a narrow viewpoint. To me,
that is the basis on which America is
great and different from most of the
world.

wholly of the agenda of one organ-

Right-wing drivel'
I am writing to you concerning
the front-page lead article ("Com-
missioners beware: 'Agenda 21 is
taking root,'") published March 23.
According to the story, some-
one named Karen Schoen recently
wasted the county commissioners'
time by presenting her warnings of
a global conspiracy to take over
local governments called "Agenda
21." I went on to read what facts
she had to back up her charges,
and of course there were none. Just
more right-wing drivel from the
lunatic fringe.
I have no problem with your
printing opinion pieces in the form
of independent columns or even let-
ters to the editor. But I have a huge
problem when you print junk like
this and pretend it's news (espe-
cially front-page news). Any pre-
tense you may have had at journal-
istic integrity has gone right out the
window. This drivel disguised as a
news story is an instilt to all your
readers. I am totally disgusted with
you and your paper.

Agenda 21 'conspiracy'
It is too bad that the story of
Karen Schoen's presentation to the
county commissioners on March
23 ("Commissioners beware: 'Agen-
da 21 is taking root,"') appeared in
the News-Leader as front-page news.
It belonged in the Viewpoint sec-
tion with other political and partisan
expressions of opinion.
Ms. Schoen detailed her belief
that Agenda 21 is a conspiracy by
those advocating world government
aimed at seizing private property


in the name of sustainable devel-
opment. Actually, the only conspir-
acy related to Agenda 21 is one fos-
tered by the John Birch Society and
other radical libertarian organiza-
tions, dedicated to forestalling any
government actions that attempt to
provide a livable world for future
generations.
The name "Agenda 21" refers to
a 10-year-old initiative of the United
Nations to lay out non-binding pro-
posals for nations to maintain this
-world as a place attractive for
human habitation. It recognizes that
unrestrained development, use of
resources and pollution by any one
nation must be of concern to all
nations because, like it or not, we all
live on the, same planet. These
guidelines for sustainable develop-
ment were agreed to by 178 coun-
tries at a conference in Rio De
Janeiro in 1992, including the USA
under the administration of George
H.W. Bush, surely not known as a
radical conservationist.
Without doubt, as the future
unfolds, Americans and all other
peoples of the world will be forced
to yield the right to absolute free-
dom of the use and abuse of nature.
Indeed, in one small way, we have
already accepted the fact that CFCs
must be eliminated due to their
destruction of the ozone layer. But
while all may not agree, there is no
secret about this agenda. It is plain
to read by anyone who cares to
decide to look up Agenda 21 at the
UN website.
Now that the Nassau County
-Commissioners have opened their
meeting to. a presentation of this
extreme viewpoint, one.wonders
when'they will schedule a rational
rebuttal of Ms. Schoen's opinion on
sustainable development.

Conspiracytheories
If a conspiracy theorist visits with
the county commission, touting fake
moon trips, does this constitute
front-page news? Front-page news is
usually objective coverage of an
event of current iluporltance.
Agenda 21 is neither news nor cur-
rent, which would usually consign it
to a back-page opinion piece.
Instead, this is presented as an
important news item. Opinionated
phrases, such as "social justice is a
communist term, and that's being
presented in our schools" are appro-


private only for the opinion page. If
someone wants to- dismiss civil
rights, women's rights and religious
freedom as communist ideas, so be
It. Factual news and current events
should be reserved for the front
page. Opinions should expressed
as such and consigned to a more
appropriate place.
Agenda 21 was asUnited Nations
statement from Rio de Janeiro in
1992 (text is here: www.un.org/
esa/dsd/agenda21/res_agen-
da21_00.shtmD, not a mandate to
do anything,'and hardly a current
hot news item, except perhaps for
the personal agenda of Karen
Schoen and others worried about
black helicopters and the "New
World Order."

Thankyou. Girl Scoutsl!
Sunday's 100th anniversary cel-
ebration of Girl Scouting included a
tea held at the Atlantic Avenue
Recreation Center hosted by present
day Nassau County Girl Scouts.
Guests of honor were "old" Girl
Scouts, and we were honored like
royalty! We ate cookies and drank
tea and were served cake and punch
and more tea. We were given alum-
nae pins and flowers and plaques of
appreciation thanking us for our
time and energy encouraging, teach-
ing and caring for girls in our life-
time as well as for just being a Girl
Scout.
"How many years were you a
Girl Scout?" "I don't remember."
"Did you win an award as a Girl
Scout?" "I don't remember." But we
will long remember their charming
ceremonies and songs and stories
and the circle of friendship.
If you're an "old" Girl Scout and
you'd be interested in participating
in special events, consider the Order
of the Evergreen, an alumnae group

Sea turtles


begin nesting

The survival of sea turtle species that have
been on earth 110 million years depends on a rit-
ual that begins every spring, as females climb out
of the ocean to lay their eggs.
Florida's sea turtle nesting season started
this month and continues through October. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is asking beachgoers to be
careful and watch out for sea turtles coming
ashore to lay their eggs. Leatherback turtle nests
already have been documented this year on
beaches in Indian River, St. Lucie and Martin
counties.
"Please respect Florida's sea turtles by leav-
ing them alone and staying at a distance when
you spot them moving across the sand or laying
eggs," said Robbin Trindell, who is responsible
for sea turtle management at the FWC. "Sea tur-
tles are resilient species, having been on Earth
for millions of years, but the turtles and their
eggs and hatchlings are especially vulnerable
whenever they appear on our beaches."
Once a female sea turtle digs a nest on the
beach with her rear flippers, she deposits about
100 eggs the size of Ping-Pong balls. Then she
covers up the nest with sand. Females often
appear to weep as they nest, but the purpose of
those tears is to remove salt from the turtle's
bqdy.
Last year was an exceptional nesting year for
sea turtles in Florida, with a record count for
green -turtle nests, and the number of
leatherback turtle nests almost matching the
record.
Another important step that people can take
to help sea turtle nesting is turning off or shield-
ing outdoor lights that face the ocean. Sea turtle -
hatchlings may confuse artificial nighttime light-
ing on homes and businesses with the sparkle of
seawater, and head in the wrong direction when
leaving their nests.
If confused turtle hatchlings end up heading
inland instead of toward their, watery habitat,
they often die from dehydration, getting run
over, or being preyed upon by raccoons, ghost
crabs and fire ants.
Sea turtle eggs typically incubate for 45 to 60
days, and the hatchlings will emerge on Florida
beaches through November.
Three sea turtle species, the loggerhead,
green turtle and leatherback, nest regularly on
Florida's beaches. Two other species, the
hawksbill and Kemp's ridley, nest infrequently
on the state's shoreline. All five species are
federally listed as either threatened or endan-
gered:
You can report someone disturbing a sea tur-
tle nest, or report a sea turtle that is being
* harassed, injured or dead by calling FWC's
Wildlife Alert Hotline at (888) 404-3922 or *FWC
or #FWC on your cell' phone. Or you can text
Tip@MyFWC.com.

my naturalist sleuth Doug Stuber
Shas sorted it out for me. There is
one bald eagle nest, but it is view-

ties. Thanks Doug!
And, according to Doug, two
fledgling eagles are nlow soaring
around over the marshes, accom-
panied by their parents who are
teaching them the survival skills
F.of catching their own fish. Young

Foster- Turley from the kids?
It's impossible
to say, but it's a nice thought!
There have also been eagles
reported on the cell towers at the
south end of the island, but no
nesting activity there.
More than likely this site just
provides an "eagle eye" view of
the surroundings. Now there are
reports once again that ospreys
are also seen on the towers. It is
their time of year to begin nest- '
ing, and these towers suit their
needs.
If you want to watch ospreys
nesting close up, word has it that
a pair of osprey is setting up shop
once again on the nesting plat-
form on 14th Street near the back
gate to Fort Clinch State Park.
For years now, Fernandina resi-
dents have been watching osprey
raising a family every year at this
location. It may be the same pair
returning, or even one of their
offspring that brought a mate
home to this spot. For the past
few years June and George Junes
have also been watching another
osprey nest in the marsh to the
east of here, but they say the nest
got blown down in a storm
months ago. So far they have not
seen any nest rebuilding going on
here, but the season is still early
and who knows?
Thanks all of you for keeping
me in the loop while I'm finishing
up my assignment in Asia. I can't
wait to be home again, where the
nature and people I love best are
all living. Amelia Island, here I
come, and it can't be soon
enough!

Beach weather here,



and so are the police



to enforce local laws


As the weather warms and
residents and visitors start
*heading for local beaches, the
Fernandina Beach Police
Department would like to
remind everyone that officers
are monitoring the beach
every day and have been issu-
ing warnings and citations to
several dog owners for leash
law violations,
Code Enforcement officers
are also dealing with the issue
of "beach debris," the
overnight collection of articles
from umbrellas, tents and
canopies to coolers, lawn
chairs and beach toys.
Residents and visitors are'
asked, to refrain from leaving
these articles on our beaches
overnight.
The police department is
also working to impact the
problem of littering by taking
direct enforcement action.
Cans, bottles; papers and baby
diapers should be disposed of
properly and not left on beach-
es.
(If you want to be proac-
tive, consider joining local vol-
unteers on April 7 at 11 a.m.' for
a beach cleanup campaign.
Learn more at www.Kooks
Pollute.com.) -
In addition, police are once
again checking to see if short-
term rental property is being
properly advertised on the
Internet and in local newspa-
pers. Ordinance 2011-23,


Section 26-101 (Resort Rental
Permit) was amended on Nov.
15 and now requires that all
advertising include the city
permit number, mandates
annual permit renewal, and
inspection and also requires a
valid permit be displayed near
the main entrance of the resi-
dence at all times, among
other changes.
With the summer months
upon us, the police department
would like to remind residents
-and visitors of some practical
beach safety rules:
Dog owners are remind-
ed that their pet must be on a
leash whild on the beach and
dog owners are responsible
for removing any animal waste.
The consumption of alco-
holic beverages is not allowed,
on the beaches within the city.
For the safety of those
getting sand between their
toes, the use of glass contain-
ers is not allowed on the
beaches.
Parking or driving on the
beach is limited to the defined
section. at the Sadler Road
access.
Horses are allowed south
of the Sadler Road access
between May and October
from 5 p.m. and sunset or
between sunrise and 11 a.m.
The horse rider is responsible
for removing animal waste.
Call police at 277-7342 to
report any violations.


This was written by Garrett
Pelican of the News-Leader from
oral and written reports by the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office,
the city of Fernandina Beach
Police Department and other
agencies. Arrest indicates suspi-
cion of a crime, not guilt.
Anyone with information
about criminal activity can con-
tact the Fernandina Beach Police
Department at 277-7342 or the
Nassau County Sheriff's Office
anonymously by calling 225-0147

ard and Bryceville. The "We Tip"

Toygun scare
No charges will be filed but
a seventh-grade student was
suspended for bringing an "air-
soft" gun to Fernandina Beach
Middle School last fall, Principal
John Mazzella said.
"He's no longer in our pop-
ulation," he said of the student,
who has since been assigned to .
an alternative program.
Mazzella told police that a
student had witnessed one of
her peers bring a gun to school,
according to the report. Even
though the incident occurred
Oct. 10, the girl did not report it
until this month in light of a
murder-suicide at Episcopal
High School in Jacksonville and
a gun scare at Yulee Middle
School, the principal said.
After interviewing witness-
es and reviewing their written
statements, Mazzella confront-
ed the student, who admitted
to bringing a BB gun to school,
police said.
The student told police he


and a cousin had been playing
with the gun Oct. 9 at a friend's
house and he put the gun in his
backpack. He forgot the gun
was in his bag when he left for
school Oct. 10 and was fright-
ened he would be punished for
having it, he told police.
When he was called to the
office for unrelated reasons, he
asked a girl in his class to hide
the gun in her backpack, and.
she agreed, according to the
report. After returning to class,
he retrieved his gun, police said,
but his peers witnessed the
exchange.
The investigation revealed
that the gun was not a BB gun,
but an airsoft gun, which uses a
spring-fire mechanism to shoot
tiny plastic rounds, according
the report. Because of that dis-
tinction, police said the student
did not violate Florida laws, even
if he did violate school rules.

Marijuana high
A 17-year-old Yulee High
School student ,was arrested
March 12 on drug charges after
a peer told school officials the
student had sold him marijuana,
according to a deputy's report.
Deputies said a student, who
had been caught with a small .
bag of the substance by a
teacher, told school officials he
purchased it from the defen-
dant. The defendant was called
to the school's front office
where a school administrator
searched him and found a small
bag of marijuana in his wallet,
deputies said.
The defendant allegedly
admitted he sold the bag to the
student, deputies reported.
The student is charged with


the sale and delivery of mari-
juana, a felony.

Stolen firearm
A 16-year-old from Callahan
was arrested for grand theft
after he stole his girlfriend's
father's rifle, according to a
deputy's report.
A Bryceville man told dep-
uties Feb. 17 that an unknown
person broke into his CR 121
residence and stole a Ruger
assault rifle valued at $800.
The defendant admitted
stealing the gun after his girl-
friend saw her father's gun
stashed in her boyfriend's truck,
a Nassau County Sheriff's
Office report said.
The defendant allegedly said
he had been in the man's resi-
dence and stole the rifle,
deputies reported.
He is charged with grand
theft of a firearm.

ALSwalknJacksonvile
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 theirsteps 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 cant. 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
located at 9735 Gate Parkway.

SThe yipss" is a golf term that afflicts many golfers. We have seen the yipss" totally crash
PGA professionals like Chip Beck, Ian Baker-Finch and David Duval, but it is a very
common problem on the putting green. It occurs when the golfer has so many failures
on certain putts that it causes a mental breakdown in the subconscious part of our
brain. While it is a nice concept to think that the problem will fix itself over time, it
really never goes away. The only way that you can hope to fix this situation is to
change everything about your putting game. This means from your stance to the grip, a complete
start-over is in order. Eliminating all the old bad habits is the key to giving yourself the best chance
to succeed and getting rid of the yipss".

Kids learn fishing at Fort Clinch pier


T he Florida Depart-
ment of Enviormen-
tal Protection and
Fort Clinch State
Park held a successful youth
fishing clinic Saturday. Also
helping in the big kids event'
were the Friends of Fort
Clinch, the Florida Fish and
'Wildlife Conservation, the
local Kiwanis Club and mem-
bers of the Nassau Sport
Fishing Association. Kids
enjoyed a fun day at Fort
Clinch while being taught the
many aspects of fishing from
A to Z.
"We had children coming
from all parts of Florida to
attend the recent Fort Clinch
fishing clinic," said John
Hartrich, president of the
NSFA. "I am really impressed
by the many. families that
took the time to bring their
children to Fort Clinch to
learn all about fishing."
Hartrich is also a Big
Brother to Joey Hagen, who
also attended the clinic.
Parents and children first
signed up at the registration
tent, then attended a series of
fishing clinics before walking
out on the Fort Clinch fishing
pier to test their newly-
acquired fishing skills.
Knot tying was taught at
the first station; kids were
given a large hook and small
length of rope, which actually
simulated fishing line. Hands-
on instruction was given to
children, teaching them to tie
the common clinch knot.
The "Good Angler" station
taught children the impor-
tance of wearing a Coast
Guard-approved life jacket
and how to fish with circle
hooks so that fish could be
released without harm.
The "Fishing Tackle" sta-
tion was all about fishing
lures, sunscreen and first aid.
Tom and Trisha Glenn of
the NSFA taught the impor-
tance of using the "Hook Out"
tool so fish could be released
without actually handling
your catch.
Emily Gilyard did an out-
standing job teaching chil-
dren all about fish habitat at
the last kids' clinic tent On
hand was a small aquarium
filled with all types of fish
habitat that are so vital to the
survival of every species of


game fish
that are
found in our
oceans, tidal
rivers and
bays.
Habitats,
including
sea grasses,
lime rock
OUTDOORS and salt
--. -- marshes, are
elriyLacoss just a few
habitats that
eventually evolve into sea life,
beginning with plankton to a
trillion species of fish,
mammals and turtles.
Children were then given
a brand new fishing rod and
reel, which were donated by
the Florida Wildlife
Commission. Children were
then taught how to use their
new fishing rod and reel at a
very important "Casting
Clinic." With a brand new
fishing rod, reel and casting
instructions, parents and chil-
dren then made their way out
to the Fort Clinch fishing pier
to test their new fishing skills.
"Several children have
caught fish this morning
while fishing with fresh squid
and shrimp," Bob Gaster said.
"The FWC actually set out
chum bags by the peir pilings
earlier this morning, which
really helped in attracting a
variety of saltwater fish
including flounder to the kids
baited hooks.
"During the cooler months
of winter I was catching some
real keepers at the Fort
Clinch fishing pier.
Oftentimes a limit of sea trout
to 18 inches."
After fishing, parents and
children'made their way to
the hot dog tent, where a deli-
cious lunch with chips and
drinks were served.
I would have to say ?he
Fort Clinch Youth Fishing
SClinic was a huge success for
both children and their par-
ents.
The 12 annual Times-
Union Redfish Round-Up will
take place Saturday at Jim
King Park and boat ramp
located at Sisters Creek. The
deadline for entries is Thurs-
day or when the event fills up
to-500 boats. Visit www.jack-
sonville.com/redfishroundup

NEWS-LEADER / FERNANDINA BEACI. 'l.,


Miracle offspring never ceases to amaze or inspire


We are having a party on our
beautiful island. We are celebrat-
ing the miracle of spring.
Everywhere we go, we are treat-'
ed to wonderful displays of beau-
tiful blooming azaleas in all col-
ors from white to brilliant
oranges and pinks.
Early spring finds me on
early morning yard patrol check-
ing to see which plants in my
garden may have made it suc-
cessfully through the winter.
Tender new growth pushes
through the ground and buds
swell on the hodgepodge of
plants that I call my garden.


Soon the early bloomers will
make way for the summer-long
heavy hitters. There are some
mystery plants that will remain a
mystery until they actually
bloom and announce them-
selves. Some may be clever
weeds, but they will be found out
before long. Time will tell. No
mercy for the weeds. ,
This time of year we remi-
nisce about the crocus, daffodils
and lilacs of Northern springs,
but would not trade them for pur
showy Southern springs. Over
the next few weeks and months,
we will be treated to the beauty


of an amazing variety of flower-
ing plants, shrubs and trees.
Like a slow motion fireworks
show, each day and week we are
treated to a new flash of color. It
never gets old. The years
have not blunted my sense of
awe at the pure miracle of the
season.
It happens every spring. The
Big Guy and I have already start-
ed our gardening routine.
Neither can resist the flats of
brightly colored flowers that are
so tempting this time of year. We
love the yearly spring plant sale
and the many unique things we


are able to find, yes, and adopt.
Once home we are eager to set-
tle the newcomers into the back-
yard garden. Then we check on
them each day to insure that
they are happy and well taken
care of.
Yes, the glorious flowering
plants thrive, but so do the bad "
guys dreaded weeds. Dollar
weed how I hate it. Wonder if it
is called dollar weed because it
takes so many dollars to fight it?
As I fill my wheelbarrow with a
variety of determined weeds, I
swear new ones are popping up
right behind me. Weeds defy any


sort of spray or theory I try.
Weeds win. It is just the
way it is.
So it is the season of renewal
and promise. Spring brings out
the best of our beautiful island
and seems to bring out the best
in people. Even the grumpiest of
curmudgeons can't resist a col-
orful spring day on Amelia
Island.

Recently, the Fernandina
Beach Rotary Club
enjoyed a presentation by
Curtis Dvorak, the man
behind the Jacksonville
Jaguars mascot, Jaxson
de Ville. Dvorak, at right
with diehard fan Janice
O'Connell, began his
career as a college mas-
cot at Virginia Tech and
has been Jaxson de Ville
since his inception in
1996. While he refers to
himself as a professional
"idiot," there is much
more to his job than his
comedic sideline antics.
Dvorak works with a
team of professional
stuntmen and engineers
to develop his many
thrilling routines, includ-
ing sky diving into the sta-
dium and more. He noted

that under new owner Shahid Khan, season ticket sales are up, and said he has the
best job in the world, pumping up the fans and making them feel part of the action.


COAupdate
The Rotary Club of
Amelia Island Sunrise wel-
comed Allen Lennon from
the Council on Aging,
above right, to discuss the
services the organization
provides to the community,
age 60 and older. The
lease on its location across
from Baptist Medical
Center Nassau is expiring
after 35 years and a new
building is being construct-
ed on North 14th Street.
The first structure will be a
transportation hub where
all 20 vans can be dis-
pensed for their daily
duties. Other services
include: In Home Services,
Adult Day Healthcare,
Meals On Wheels and a
Senior Community Center.
The operating budget of
just over $2.7 million
depends in part on private
contributions and over
10,551 hours by trained
volunteers, The fundraising
campaign for the new
building is under way
(www.coanassau.com). So
far $696,043 has been
raised but an additional
$1,789,515 is still need-
ed. Fundraising events
include a golf tournament

Playscape update
The Fernandina Beach
Rotary Club enjoyed an.3
update by Trey Warren on '
the Freedom Illay-scape, an
all-access playground
planned near-the Atlantic
Avenue Recreation Center on
land donated by the city of
Fernandina Beach. It is
design-ed to provide more
imaginative play opportuni-
ties for children with physi-
cal handicaps, learning dis-
abilities or other challenges ..
that make traditional play-
grounds inaccessible.
Representations of Fort
Clinch, shrimp boats and his- SI EBMITTFrD
toric Fernandina buildings
will be incorporated in the design. Warren, at left with Rotary Club President Shannon
Brown, noted the group backing the playground is seeking not-for-profit status and
hopes to receive grants and other assistance for construction as well as a foundation to
pay for upkeep and future expansion. He noted the playscape will also provide a
wholesome environment and fun for the entire community.


Memorabilia donated
Barbara Scott King, Amelia Island resident and Olympic gold medal winner has donat-
ed her collection of medals, awards and trophies from her career as a competitive fig-
ure skater to the city of Ottawa, home of Skate Canada. King's many awards, costumes
and gowns were photographed, catalogued and carefully packed in a truck to be trans-
ported to Canada. An exhibit will open later this year. At left are city of Ottawa

Language class
An American Sign language class meets every Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. at Burger King
on South Eighth Street, Fernandina Beach. The group is made up of 8-12 deaf, hard-
of-hearing and people that want to learn American Sign language. There's even a serv-
ice dog, Faith, who knows 30 signs. Call Barb at 556-5700.

Saving sea turtles focus of next Wild Nite forum


Wild Amelia Nature Festival
and Amelia Island Sea Turtle
Watch have announced that the
next Wild Nite, on Saving Sea
Turtles, set for April 10 at 7
p.m. at the Peck Center
Auditorium in Fernandina
Beach will focus on the work of
Amelia Island Sea Turtle Watch
and serve as its annual organi-
zational meeting, as well.
The event is free and open
to sea turtle lovers of all ages.
The speaker will be Mary
Duffy, president of Amelia
Island Sea Turtle Watch.
One of the not-so-small mir-
acles on Amelia Island is the
annual nesting of sea turtles
on island beaches from May
. through August, an ancient rit-
ual that intrigues residents and
visitors alike. Older than the
'dinosaurs, sea turtles are
thought to nest on or near the
beach of their birth, using
some internal GPS to return,
even though their migratory
patterns may take them thou-
sands of miles away in the
ocean.
Loggerheads, greens, and
occasionally a leatherback tur-
tle will nest on Amelia Island.

The ancient ritual of sea turtle nesting and the work of
Amelia Island Sea Turtle Watch to monitor and con-
serve such sea turtle nests will be the subject of the
April 10 Wild Nite, held at 7 p.m. at the Peck Center
auditorium, sponsored by the Wild Amelia Nature
Festival.


For almost two and a half
decades, Amelia Island Sea
Turtle Watch has helped count,
monitor, attend and conserve
sea turtle nests on island
beaches.
In both the summers of
2010 and 2011, Amelia Island


Sea Turtle Watch 'volunteers
documented over 150 nests, a
record 200-plus in 2010! Each
nest had about 100-150 eggs.
The hatchlings that emerged
from these nests some 50-60
days later face peril as they
make their way to the sea and


once in the sea; it is thought
that only one in 4,000 will sur-
vive to adulthood!
To learn, what you can do
to help sea turtles survive and
to learn about the work of the
Amelia Island Sea Turtle
Watch, come to "Saving Sea
Turtles" on April 10; bring your
questions, too. If you wish to
volunteer this summer as a
Turtle Watch volunteer, you
will be able to sign up at this
meeting.
To learn more about the
Wild Amelia Nature Festival, a
three-day event held at venues
on and around Amelia Island
and featuring ecotours, exhibits
for adults and children, nature
photography classes, a silent
auction, sea turtle -release,
music and entertainment, go
.to www.wildamelia.com. -
This year's festival will have
a sea turtle release on Friday,
May 18 at Main Beach; the
Georgia Sea Turtle Center will
release back to the ocean a
rehabilitated Florida sea turtle.

NASSAU HUMANE SOCIETY


Percy is a young Boxer
mix with a million-dollar
smile. She's playful and smart
and loves to be with her "per-
son." She's housetrained and
accustomed to living in a
home, and she likes to run
outside too she has plenty of
energy and would really enjoy
playtime with you. She's very
affectionate and will lean in on
you to get as much love as she
can! She's a great size and
won't get any bigger. We think
she'd do fine as a family ppt,
just be aware that she's an
alpha female when she meets
other dogs. Percy misses her
family and a shelter can be
stressful for a dog, especially
one who's intelligent and
aware. So Percy needs to find
her forever home soon. She'll
repay you with lots of love and
a smile that will brighten your
day, every day. '
Carrie is a young Domestic
Short Hair mix who had kit-
tens they've been adopted
and now Mom needs a forever
home too: She's nervous


around other cats, so she'd
probably do best as the only
pet in the family. Sle likes to
play and will nip when she's
playing with you, so she
needs an experienced cat
lover to really help her reach
her full potential. She has a
nice brown and black coat
with beautiful golden eyes.
She'd be perfect for a "cat per-
son' who would like to give a
sweet little cat a chance at a
better life. You can watch

able dogs and cats at our web-

When you have something
to sell, a classified ad is
always working for you.
So whether your prospect
opens up the paper with
his morning coffee or
before bed, your ad is


ready and waiting, and
that could mean some
quick cash for you.
