St. Johns ferry may get reprieve


The board of directors of the Jacksonville Port
Authority has agreed to fund and continue operating the
St. Johns River,Ferry for another year if additional fund-
ing can be secured from the state and city.
JaxPort would commit $200,000 of funding toward
the St. Johns River Ferry beginning Oct. 1.
JaxPort said it would offer a funding commitment as
long as supporters of the.ferry and other sources, the
Florida Department of Transportation and Jacksonville
City Council, were able to secure the necessary addi-
tional funding, approximately $450,000.
SJaxPort's commitment was also contingent upon reach-
ing an agreement with the city to transfer the liability of
the ferry and other assets tothe new ferry commission

vital in crisis

H DEATH ER A. PERRY
News-Leader
Nassau County Amateur Radio Emergency Services
(ARES) demonstrated their capabilities during their annu-
al Field Day June 23-24 in the Home Depot parking lot in
Yulee.
The Field Day is part the American Radio Relay
League's annual event in which more than 35,000 radio
amateurs across the country participate. It provides an
excellent way to demonstrate the ways in which amateur
radio benefits the community.
The ARES provides vital communications for Nassau
County Emergency Management (NCEM) during major
weather events, at other critical times and -during non-
emergency community events.
These dedicated volunteers have all registered their
qualifications and equipment for communications duty
in the public service when disaster strikes.
If a hurricane sweeps through the area, power is out,
downed trees block the only access to the neighborhood
and cell service is down, how will stranded homeowners
communicate with the outside world?
The answer is amateur radio.
While some landlines still function without electricity,
both these and cell phones require a relay to perform, but
ham operators can speak directly to one another without
electricity because each station is independently operat-
ed.
Amateur radio operators have been providing emer-
gency communications since the 1906 San Francisco
earthquake and fire. Their communications network is not
vulnerable to natural disasters so when Hurricane Katrina
inundated New.Orleans in 2005, they were able to step up
to help first responders save stranded people.
Ham radio operators were activated within minutes of
the 9/11 terrorist attacks and continued handling emer-
gency messages for weeks following the event.
The Nassau County ARES is the only organized ama-
teur radio group in Nassau County. Some of their mem-
bers promote amateur radio as well as administer feder-


taking over operation.
Once those contingencies have been met, JaxPort
will take a final vote on the funding. If the vote passes,
JaxPort would work to draft a memorandum of under-
standing.
"I am dedicated to continuing to move forward and
find funding to keep the St. Johns River Ferry opera-
tipnal," said State Rep. Janet Adkins, who was among
those who lobbied the JaPort board for the funding com-
mitment.
JaxPort had said it would cease operations of the ferry.
in October because of a financial shortfall, but ferry sup-
-porters have lobbied for continued operations while they
seek stale aid.

Annexation, halt



to beach driving



again before city
ANGELA DAUGHTRY problem with the ballot language for a
News-Leader required referendum. City commis-


The Sandpiper Beach Homes
Association is preparing, once again, to
pursue annexation of a county neigh-
borhood into the city of Fernandina
Beach.
Annexation of the beachfront
neighborhood into the city would elim-
inate beach driving in the area because
the city does not allow vehicles on its
beaches except in limited circum-
stances.
According to a June 7 letter from
association president Thomas
Gambino to homeowners in the neigh-
borhood, the primary purpose of the
annexation is to eliminate beach driv-
ing.
The neighborhood, which is in
Nassau County, is one of the last places
on the island to allow vehicles on the
beach.
The previous annexation effort,
which took four years of efforts by
the association, was approved 3-2 by
city commissioners in August 2008.
But the annexation suffered a setback
because of procedural defects and a


sioners in December 2008 also
approved a resolution seeking a state
law amendment that would preserve
beach driving in the neighborhood
even if the properties were annexed
into the city.
The Sandpiper Beach Homes
Association, Gambino-writes, is pur-
suing annexation once again because
the "political landscape" within the
city has changed.
"We met with several commisdion-
ers and found that we have the three
out of five votes necessary to annex
into the city and eliminate beach driv-
ing north of Peters Point Park,"
Gambino's letter states.
"We have received firm commit-
ments from the three city commis-
sioners that support our petition that
beach driving will be stopped if we
annex into the city," the letter states.
"We have also received commitments
from the new city manager and the
chief of police that the beach driving
prohibition would be aggressively

Former fire chief



returns to city


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
SNews:l.eader '
Former Fire Chief Dan Hanes will
return to his position with the city of
Fernandina Beach, according to City
Manager Joe. Gerrity.
Hanes, who started as fire chief
'here in November 2008, left the posi-
tion in March 2011 for personal rea-
sons, with plans to return to Fort
Lauderdale where he had served 27
years as fire rescue battalion
chief before coming to Fernandina
Beach.
Hanes will replace Chuck Bogle,
who resigned his position in April after
holding the position for about six
months. Bogle had replaced Hanes in


the per-manent posi-
tion. City Fire
Marshal Jason
Higginbotham took
over as acting chief
after Bogle's resig-
nation and after
Hanes left the posi-
tion.
Hanes Gerrity said
Hanes would begin
his job as city fire
chief Aug. 6.
"Dan is anxious to return to
Fernandina Beach and both the admin-
istrative staff and the members of the
fire department are looking forward to
his return," Gerrity wrote in an email.

Deputies rescue 3 as

GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
Nassau County Sheriff's deputies
rescued three Georgia men from
swirling floodwaters in the St. Marys
River on June 27 as Tropical Storm
Debby left a trail of flooding and water
damage in its wake.
In an effort to tally the extent of
that damage, Nassau County is ask-
ing its residents to submit reports for
any storm-related damage to their
properties.


Commissioners were scheduled to
meet at 1 p.m. Tuesday to decide
whether to extend a local state of enjer-
gency they issued June 26 in light of
the storm.
No residents have reported any
serious injuries or deaths tied to the
storm, Nassau County Fire Chief Matt
Graves said Monday. But the three
men who spent the night clinging to
trees in neck-deep water have a story
to tell.

"As in the past, the Nassau
County Commissioners are
not willing to discuss the elim-
ination of beach driving or
even limiting hours for driv-
ing on the beach," Gambino
writes. "We have exhausted
all Alternatives for controlling
the activities on thebeach with
the county."
"Time is of the essence,"
the letter states. "The Beach
Driving Committee's goal is
to have the properties annex-
ed into the citythis year."
The letter also states that
county property owners who
are annexed into the city will
pay additional city taxes, but
"the tax increase is not as
Much aswe predicted." If all
the properties in question are
annexed, the city will gain
$111,520 in taxes annually,
according to a chart provided
by Gambino.
According to a document
provided by City Clerk Mary
Mercer, annexation is "the
adding of real property to the
boundaries of an incorporat-
ed municipality."
The document states that
voluntary annexation requires
"a petition (bearing) the sig-
natures of all owners of prop-
erty in the area proposed to


be annexed."
City commissioners can
adopt an ordinance to annex
the property and redefine
municipal boundaries after
holding at least two advertised
public hearings. The ordi-
nance must also "be submitted
to a vote of the registered elec-
tors of the area proposed to
be annexed." The ordinance
must also be filed with the
county and the state:
According to Gambinio's
letter, zoning of the properties
would not change. Properties
in' the annexation effort
include the Villas of Ocean
Dunes, Sandpiper Beach
homes and single-family
homes north of the Villas.
Benefits of annexation to
property owners, according to
Gambino's letter, include
increased value of about 25
percent because of no beach
driving; reduction of personal
injury risk, improved quality of
life; improved environmental
responsibility; increased rental
income;.and reduced utility
costs by 30 percent.
"The city will not immedi-
ately take control of our utili-
ties because the city will need
to construct some utility mod-
ifications before they can

Gambino writes.

Do ies + Illusions Politics?

I have learned some very.interesting facts on this campaign trail. I
have learned that when it comes to politics there are far too many peo-
ple that have self-serving agendas. I have learned that a candidate in
my race would collect dual six figure incomes froin the tax payers if
elected and he would collect just under $1.3 million' during his first
term. I have learned that if you elect a sheriff with a brother for a coun-
ty commissioner, that his brother gets to help decide his budget and
he will also have the ability to enact laws that the sheriff would have to
enforce. For me. this is just a little too close for comfort.

The fact that I have learned this information is being viewed as a
threat by my opponent. I have been advised that they intend to make,
an attempt to discredit me and paint a picture of me as some reckless
law breaker. They have plotted to embellish times from my twenties
and will attempt to fool you as to who I am today in my forties. They
are hoping that this smoke and mirrors will blind you from the issues
at hand. They are hoping that you will not notice that I am the only
candidate that has a viable plan to improve our community and they
are hoping that you will not notice my unparalleled work ethic. As I
said before, with Chris Hartley what you see is what you get. I am a
hard working Christian family man that is in this for the right reason.
I will have to work harder than in my previous career for less money.
but it will all be worth it in the end to know that I can make a real dif-
ference in our community.

I am very excited to be a part of this movement of
NEW LEADERSHIP. NOT OLD POLITICS. I would like to
encourage each and every citizen of Nassau County to join the
movement and help make a difference. The time is here and if you
would like to rally behind me I would be honored to represent you in
this fight. Together. we can create an atmosphere of fair and equal
justice to everyone and we will no longer cater to the "good old boy"
network. I pray that each and every citizen in Nassau County will
look into their hearts and realize that I am the person that can lead us
into the future. May God Bless you and your families.
Respectfully.

Health of banks getting better


The health of banks in
Florida and Georgia is
improving after being diag-
nosed as terminal over the
last few years.
We have witnessed star-.
tling deaths of longstanding
institutions in our communi-
ties. These banks are seized
by regulators and immediate-
ly resuscitated by the FDIC.
Fortunately, these instances
-are becoming fewer.
Since the outbreak of the
financial crisis in 2008, there
have been more than 400 clo-
sures of banks and thrifts
(community banks) across
the U.S. Within Georgia, 78
institutions have been closed
by regulators, which'is the
most of any state. Florida is
not far behind with 61 failures
(followed by Illinois with 50
and California with 39).
Thus far in 2012, 30 banks
have failed over the entire

water mark for bank failures,
a fallout from what is now
labeled the Great Recession.
There is a cost each time a
bank fails.
The FDIC has paid out
more than $80 billion over the
last three years to revive
banks, assume deposits and
transfer the assets to prosper-
ous institutions. So there has
been a significant cost to tax-
payers. Looking ahead, the
FDIC expects failures to tost
another $12 billion from 2012
to 2016.
Some fabled institutions
have fallen victim to tough
times and bad mortgage
loans. In January, the oldest
continuously operating bank
in Jacksonville was shuttered.
First Guaranty Bank and
Trust Co. was taken over by
the FDIC, and reopened
as CenterState Bank of
Florida.
Last month the latest vic-
tims turned out to be Putnam

Palatka and St. Augustine,
and Security Exchange Bank
in Marietta, Ga. So the casual-

remarkable. If a bank is prof-
itable, it will not be seized by
the FDIC (which is a last
resort). About 80 percent of
banking institutions within
Georgia showed profits in the
first quarter of 2012. This
number was at 60 percent in
the fourth quarter of 2011.
The improvement among
Georgia banks has been
stronger than the trend seen
for Florida banks although
Georgia still leads all states
with 28.undercapitalized insti-
tutions. Florida is second in
the U.S. in terms of weaker
institutions, with 20 undercap-
italized banks.
So the landscape has
improved dramatically for
banks across the U.S., espe-
cially foi Florida and Georgia,
where blood was strewn
across the financial highway.
At least now it's being effec-
tively cleaned up by a vigilant
FDIC and a strengthening
housing market.

The Perils of a Bad Bite


N .o, we're
not talk-
ing about being-
attacked by
a dog. That's
perilous
enough. The
bite in question
TheDentistsof here is your
AmeliaDeitalOroup own bite-the'
way your lower teeth and your
upper teeth come together:
A bad bite can be responsible
for several woes you might
not necessarily connect, like
headaches, unsightly teeth and
TMJ disorder.
Let's take TMJ first. That's
short for temporomandibular
joint-the hinge that connects
your jaw to your skull. It's stressed
every day, just like your knee joint.
When you eat, your jaw can be
going up and down or side to side.
In fact, if you put your finger in an
ear and open and shut your mouth
you can feel it in action.
That's stressful enough. But
if you have a bad bite-if the
lower and upper teeth don't fit
properly-teeth can actually cause
the jaw to dislocate forward out
of its socket in the skull. That, in
turn, puts extra stress on the jaw
muscles to return it to the right
position.
One early warning is an
annoying clicking sound when the
jaw.shuts. Left unattended, this


condition wears on the jaw joint,
producing more inflammation
and more pain. And while chronic
headache can have many causes,
the extra stress on jaw muscles can
certainly be a contributing factor.
Subconscious attempts to correct
the bite by grinding or clenching
the jaw can-also result in chipped,
worn, unsightly teeth.'
While TMD (Temporo-
mandibular Disorder) and a bad
bite aren't exactly synonymous,
they are very closely linked. Once
a patient is determined to have a
bad bite, the appropriate procedure
of correcting the bite is begun. A
bite adjustment may be helpful,
or orthodontic treatment may be
needed. Cosmetic dentistry can be
done after the bite is corrected to
improve damaged teeth.
If you suffer recurring
headaches, bothersome clicking
when you chew, or find yourself
grinding or clenching your teeth,
do yourself a favor and schedule
a dental appointment. You might
be surprised to find how easy it is
to correct a bite and free you from
the pain you may have taught
yourself to endure.

OPINION


WEDNESDAY, JULY 4, 2012/News-Leader


On politic

We have met the enemy
and guesswhat?
As the 2012 presidential campaign rhetoric
increases over the budget deficit and the nation-
al debt limit, I think we all need to consider how
we got to this point in our collective history. It
seems that all of the politicians in the running for
president are trying to say that the government
should be run like a business so in this musing
I will refer to the government as "our business."
Keep in mind that the term "our business" is
correct as we are all stockholders, having pur-
chased our shares with taxes.
First, take a dollar bill out of your wallet
and study it for a moment. What you are holding
in your hand is a promissory note on a bank
account for our business a business that is
nearly $1.5 trillion (reference Congressional
Budget Office) overdrawn for this fiscal year.
This is a business that owes $14 trillion in what
I will call short-term debt, i.e., marketable secu-
rities such as Treasury notes, bills and bonds
held by investors and other governments
(China holds approximately $900 billion of this
debt), as well as various U.S. government trusts
such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
Our business also has an unfunded liability
of an estimated $62 trillion made up of (again)
Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid; TARP,
Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA)


:ians, and tl
and Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA)
obligations. Like me, you may not have been
familiar with the last two entities. These
were enacted in July and September of 2008,
respectively, to save the housing and financial
markets from themselves/ourselves at an esti-
mated cost to us U.S. taxpayers of 5 trillion tax
dollars.
The second thing to consider is that I'm not
Concerned. I have had discussions with learned
individuals one was even a former bond trad-
er for Lehman Brothers all of whom have
assured me that the national debt is not a prob-
lem as we owe it to ourselves. I'm not sure when
China became the 51st state, but I'm not a geog-
raphy major so what do I know? One time, prob-
ably when alcohol was involved, I even posited
that without the interest payments of over $430
billion per fiscal year we would have more money
to spend on important things like highways and
such. Wrong again! That interest is paid to our-
selves, China now included, and therefore helps
our pension funds in paying us our retirement
checks.
The third thing to consider is that not one
penny of this money would be owed if we hadn't
requested that our "business" do a whole lot of
things for us, the stockholders, and not charge
us the full cost of any of these items/services.
Ouch! That really hurts. We want good high-
ways and low gas prices. No problem. Our busi-

ness will issue bonds for the next generation to
pay rather than raise gas taxes for this genera-
tion to pay at the pump. We want a strong mili-
tary; but we don't want a draft. No problem'

want someone else to pay for all of our medical

My point: Don't blame the politicians for
what we have created. We have elected and re-
Selected "our folks" in Washington because they"
deliver the bacon to the people back home. The
only way to fix our mess is to tighten our
belts and bite the collective bullet. You can't bor-
row yourself out of debt. Think about that the
next time you are ready to cast your ballot.
Vote for the person who will consider the good
of the country and not your special interests at
home.
And one more thing we didn't get into this
mess in one presidential term and we won't get
out of it in one presidential term. Neither one of
the parties can produce a miracle so use your
common sense before you pull that lever in
November.

We the Peoplewilll
choose our leaders


Suppose someone offered you a job you real-
ly want with a $45,000 to $120,000 or more
salary. You might get a car for your job and a
good expense account. Your schedule would be
fairly free. Once you have that job it is nearly
impossible to' get fired for at least two to four
years, but if you do a really terrific jpb you
might have it indefinitely with great retirement
benefits.
If you were offered a job like this wouldn't you
do everything to impress the person who was
going to hire you? Wouldn't you try to find out
everything about what your employer wanted
from you? Wouldn't you want to know as much
about your responsibilities as possible before
your started working? If you had this job, and it
was the job of your dreams, wouldn't you do
everything you could to keep your employer
happy?
I am addressing our politicians who are in
office now, or who will be trying to get elected
in the next election.
June 21 there was a live event at the Peck
Center, flyers were posted all over Nassau
County, there were several articles in the News-
Leader about it and numerous emails were sent
There was an individual invitation sent to every
elected official and every person running for
office in Nassau County in the upcoming elec-
Stions. The turnout by the citizens was incredible.
but there was just one elected official, County
Commissioner Steve Kelley, who attended.
Unbelievably there was ndt one person who is
running who thought it .important enough for


them to attend. We all hear, "When I'm elected,
I will," "When I am Sheriff, I promise you," "You
can depend on me," "I will have weekly meetings
to listen to you," etc.. etc., bht not one of them
came to learn some facts about what is happen-
ing in our country that will affect every citizen in
Nassau County.
Facts presented were about issues that
infringe on every bit of freedom that we now
enjoy. The topic was Agenda 21, most people
have never heard of it, and elected officials, or
those running for office obviously have no con-
ception of the importance of it. Patriots all over
the country are becoming aware of this UN pro-
gram and are fighting back. We desperately need
our elected officials to know about this and other
important issues. I would venture to say there is
not one official in office, or a "wannabe" official
that would have come out of that meeting with-
out having learned a much needed lesson about
what its going on in our county.
It is not going to be politics as usual any
more. Those of you who are running are going
to have to answer some tough questions in the
upcoming months. We the People are retaking
control of what is happening in our government
period. If you feel you can get elected because
you alone knows many people, that is not going
to get you elected. If you have neighbors who like
you, that is not going to get you elected. Maybe
you have:lived here all your life, that is not going
to get you elected. Perhaps you can get in front
of a crowd and make some impressive promises,
that is not going to get you elected. We don't care
how many people you know, or how much your
neighbors like you, or how long you have
lived here. We want some true patriotic America-
first, God-fearing, courageous, constitutional
warriors.
You need to understand we are becoming an
informed group of concerned citizens, and we
demand real political heroes. We want people
who will not be'intimidated in their political lives.
We want people who will read the oath of office,
know what it says and commit to that oath. We
want people who care about America, not about
a soft job to puff egos. We want and expect and
are going to do our best to get the best leaders
that Nassau County has ever seen. The most
informed, courageous and constitutional elected
people in the state of Florida. We want leaders in
Nassau that will set trends in our state, by their
actions, by being moral, committed and above all
knowledgeable about the Constitution of the
United States of America. Who will fight for "We
the People."
I realize this is harsh, I beg you who are in
office, or want to be please get informed. Let us
help you. We have great sources on all-important
issues. We don't carewhat your political party is;
we care if you are a constitutional-loving
American. We will find the people to educate
you; all you have to do for the next few months
is show up.,"WethePeople" aregoingto decide
who gets the job,; cme to our events and maybe
it will be you. God Bless America.

City's utility

Not long ago a teacher friend asked me a
question, "We're getting ready to build a house
and want to build in the city, but the impact
fees will be around $20,000, why are they so
high?" I mumbled some kind of answer, largely
incomprehensible. "Especially," she continued,
"when we can build right across the street in
the county and not pay anything!" The tempta-
tion of reminding her-that the city was in the
county, too, left me immediately when I consid-
ered the consequences of responding to such a
great question with such a shallow reply. Truth
was, I didn't have much.of an answer.
On the surface, impact fee theory is rela-
tively simple growth does not pay for itself, so
communities and counties have to spend tax
dollars expanding infrastructure to accommo-
date new homes, subdivisions and develop-
ments impact. The costs associated with
that "impact," the theory continues, should
be'paid by those creating it, hence the impact
fee.
Not surprisingly,'impact fees are despised
by people who have to pay them new home-
owners .and developers, but they are revered
by governments as a source of new, non-tradi-
tional revenue and by current taxpayers as a
kind of user fee, paid only by new residents
and businesses.'
The county, happily wed to their long-held,
stone-age belief that government should be in
the business of attracting as many people to
.the area as possible, doesn't impose impact
fees. They continue to believe in the myth,
despite the complete lack of supporting evi-
dence, that impact fees discourage growth, so
they, in a nod to responsible government,
keep them on the books, but they just ignore
them.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Nature'renourishes
beaches
In recent decades multiple.millions
of public and private dollars have been
spent to artificially place. sand on
regional beaches. Euphemistically
referred to as "renourishment proj-
ects," such grandiose efforts are essen-
tially routine dredge and-fill operations
conducted to replace beach sediment
lost through natural erosion processes.
In most circumstances, such projects
are analogous to filling sinkholes, since
newly deposited sediment is often
washed away faster than it can be
replaced.
Regionally, replacement sand is
often dredged from the bottom of local
navigation channels or from sea floor
substrates. As such, it possesses no
true nutritive or organic value other
than satisfyiAg the desires of beach-
front property owners and it certainly
doejwaQtKipijReany "qsbstaincaaw et
essary to'life'ad -growth'lrl(We.bster)l
To the contrary, sand pumping projects
effectively smother a natural beach's
life forms and research has disclosed
that two years must pass before many
beach organisms begin to restore their
populations. Like all of our planet's
ecosystems, beaches (despite their
barren appearance) thrive with living
organisms just beneath the sand's.sur-
face where they obtain oxygen, filter
seawater or capture their sustenance
directly from the water. Artificially
dumping tons of sediment on top of
such living communities destroys them
and the beach life that depends on
them.
Wheire mar does not intervene or'
exercise lis subjective dominion,
beaches are continuously giving and
receiving nutrients,from the ocean and
performing timeless natural functions.
One such function was recently and
dramatically demonstrated when per-
sistent onshore winds blew quantities
of Sargasso weed onto local beaches.
Despite what might have been con-
veyed by some local news reports,
such events have occurred on:region-.
al shores for millennia with no fanfare,
alarm, concerns or media attention.
The short-term beneficiaries of the
windfall were birds and crabs.of the
shore that glean organisms carried
ashore with the pelagic algae.
However, its long-terni and more
significant contribution comes after
the wrack lines of weeds are trans-
ported higher on the beach by tides
and storms. Here, they form dense
windows, trap sand and initiate the
dune building process. Over time, the
Sargasso would compost and give up

'its minerals arid organic content and
thus "renourish" the otherwise sandy
substrates. On Amelia Island, this
process was well under way before the
wasteful and unnecessary removal
.effort began. .
.But this cannot stand, for 21st
century culture possesses new values
and very different perspectives on
nature's functions and processes.
Sargasso weed is now a "problem", an
inconvenience, an impediment to the
commercial exploitation of the sea
shoe and it must be removed post
haste! Today, we have the best
beaches money can buy and we cannot
tolerate "natural renourishment."
Political favors must be served,-
Florida's Department of Environmental
Protection must repudiate its mission
and issue convenience permits and
scarce public funds must be wasted to
rid our artificially "renourished" beach-
es of free, natural nourishment.
"In wildness is the preservation of
the world" H.D. Thoreau. Let's rid
our beaches of all wildness as soon as
possible.
Patrick R. I yary
Fernandina Beach

'It ain't natural
SThis is-Fqrt Clinch last week with all
the seaweed and then today a week


later (see photos). The beach cleans
itself. It does not need $15,000 in beach
seaweed removal to do it. That is the
biggest waste of money I have ever
heard of. The people who run these
resorts need to live here a while and
get to know the beach and how quick-
ly it repairs itself of storm damage.
Perhaps they should walk the beach
each day, instead of it in their air-con-
ditioned offices, as a requirement for
a job which is so closely associated
with the world in which they have cho-
sen to live.
This seaweed is a natural part of
the process of living on a beach. It
helps catch the sand to build up the
-beaches, helps stabilize-the beach itself,
adds important nutrients to gi-owing
plantson the beach and feeds the birds,
who are so important to our ecosystem.
We do not want seaweed removal on
our island.like they do in the big cities.
It just ain't natural, and in the long run
a detriment to the beach.

Impact fees -
I read Pat Keogh's viewpoint (June
27) about Fernandina's purchase of
FPU's water system. They paid way
too much and I cannot figure out why
Fernandina Beach wanted to get in the


,,ANP TE PURSUIT OF MAPPINEG,
NATE BEELER/THEWASHINGTON EXAMINER


water business in the first place. Guess
it goes with wanting to be in'.the golf
course business..
Anyhow, he decided to make anoth-
er pitch for Fernandina t6 suspend its
impact fees. It seems that the impact
fee and concurrency task force's main
concern is to remove impact fees alto-
gether.
They keep coming back to this and
have even advocated that the school
board remove them. I don't understand
this. You see, impact fees make the
developers pay for the impact of their
development. If they don't pay for it,
your taxes will haie to pay for it. I
believe that those who gain financially
by building houses or shopping malls
or motelrooms should pay for the costs
incurred by adding people and vehicles
to our community..
If:you add 200 motel rooms, you
add cars and people driving around
the area. This impacts roads. They
might heed a policeman. This uses the
police. Their staying here requires the
Motel to hire folks to check them in,
make up their rooms and other serv-
ices. This requires services for these
people to live here and to educate their
children and provide fire and
city/county services to them.
Nassau County has had its impact
fees suspended for four years with no
sign they will return, In that time the
following have been built without
kicking in any impact funds to the
county:
Publix, Kohl's, Family Dollar, TJ
Maxx, Dollar General, Auto Zone, $80
million of new rooms and ballroom at
Omni Amelia Island Plantation, reno-
vation of all the rooms at The Ritz-
Carlton, Amelia Island and hundreds of
houses. One of the board members of
this task force implied there was no
real construction so this justified no
.impact fees. Well. I don't know about
you but I sure believe the traffic on
SR 200 is getting worse and more
crowded. It seems to me the task
force must be a bit blind. But it might
be that'the task force is made up of
businessmen, developers, builders,
architects and such. I don't see
folks Ijke the county engineer, home-
owners and other concerned citizens
on this board. I don't see any substi-
tution for the impact fees being
implemented by them. I read their min-
utes and I don't see any proposals for
this, only plans for building more
roads.
I guess what I'm trying to say is
that if we don't have impact fees and we
continue to grow (insert "Nassau
County is open for business"), some-
one will have to pay for the growth in
infrastructure and most likely it will
be me and folks like me through taxes


or fees and not the ones who are mak-
ing money on the growth.
Sorry, but I'm tired of the state and
local government picking my pocket
because I am a small guy and don't
give big money to politicians' election
fundraising!

Really?
Are any of our local officials paying
attention to what's going on ("City con-
fronts extraordinary budget crisis"
and "City pays' more for unused sick
leave" (June 29).
SThe housing market is still in the
tank, inflation is on the rise have
you seen the cost increase of gro-
ceries, let alone the added cost of ener-
gy? and yet once again you want the
taxpayers to pay for your lack of finan-
cial responsibility and judgment.
I haven't run my AC or heat in two
years; I cannot afford the added
cost. I have to live within my means
just to keep a roof over my head. It's
time the city did the same. So here's a
few ideas to help you fine folks figure
it out, seeing as how we're footing the
bills.
First, Forward Fernandina needs to
be puton hold. We need to concentrate
on the most vital needs of the city,
there will be time enough to move for-
ward, not keep moving taxpayers back-
wards:
Second, city employees, yes, this
reans all of you, and the city police
patrol officers need to drive their per-
sonal vehicles to and from work; this
will save on taxpayers' footing the bill
for gas and maintenance fees. The
only exception should be the fire chief,
the police chief, the mayor and the
utility workers that are on call for
emergencies.
Third, it's time to be more busi-
ness-friendly; it's time to relax all the
codes, fees and non-understandable
paperwork that discourages anyone
to open a small business in the city
limits. Have you not noticed all the
empty stores all over the island?
More local business, more local rev-
enue; more local revenue, more local
taxes. It's really not that hard to
figure out. And you won't have to keep
putting the thumbscrews to the tax-
payers.
Finally, the issue of pay for unused
sick leave. Sick leave is for when you
are sick, period. If you aren't sick you
are able to work, if you're able to work
you're already getting paid. You should
not be paid twice for doing what you
were hired to do.
John J. Jackson IV

In the city there are two
kinds of impact fees, 1) non-
Sfutility fees police, fire and
public facilities (parks and
recreation) and, 2) utility fees
for sewer and water.
Non-utility impact fees
were created to remedy the
S following situation: a family
DEBATE moves into their newly built
house in February, but the
AND property doesn't go on the
TACKLE tax rolls until the following
year, so mom, dad, Jenny,
Johnny and the dog get police
Ron Sapp and fire protection, roads,
parks, etc. for 11 months tax-
free current taxpayers pick up the bill. Non-
utility impact fees make sense as long as the
fees are rightly formulated, collected, applied
and spent.
That bi-ings us to the second kind of impact
fee, those involving water and sewer.
For me, any fee has to be justifiable and eas-
ily explained to a tax/fee-weary populace. Too,
they have to be fair and uniformly applied. In
my opinion, the utility impact fee for both water
and sewer fails to meet these basic criteria;
consider:
Utility impact fees cannot be justified, nor
are they easily explained. If I'm a new home-
owner or if 1've just opened a new business, I
should want to know just how I've "impacted"
the existing systems,.after all, I immediately
begin to pay monthly water and sewer bills and
don't they have future expansion needs built
in?
Utility impact fees are not fair because they
are not uniformly applied. What follows is a


small sample of just a few restaurants and the
utility fees they paid when they opened or
expanded:
Sliders created 175 seats after it recently
expanded and the utility impact fees were
$30,700.
Cafe Karibo added 64 seats upstairs and
paid utility impact fees of $17,579.
Peppers' new restaurant on Centre Street
created 206 seats and paid utility impact fees of
$94,869 ($31,172 for water and $63,697 for
sewer).
Timoti's, a new restaurant on Third
Street, created 56 seats (10 table seats inside
and 44 booth/benches outside) and paid utility
impact fees of $0 $0 for water and $0 for
sewer.
The above was produced through a public
records request and the information was fasci-
nating. The fee applications were filled with all
kinds of exceptions, credits and exemptions,
with one restaurant being exempted from pay-
ing utility fees at all because it was "take-out
only."
As I see it, here's the bottom line re: impact
fees: 1) The city should keep collecting non-
utility impact fees as long as all the criteria out-
lined above is met. 2) The city should stop col-
lecting utility impact fees immediately, they are
unjustified, cannot'be easily explained, are not
fair and are not uniformly applied.
This is my opinion, but I'm sure utility fee
proponents have a different take, after all we're
talking about a lot of money that can be spent
in a lot of different ways in a lot of different
places. Once the county understands the rev-
enue implications, I predict that even they will
start to salivate at the prospects.

PAT RFSTER.TURLEY/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER
A juvenile alligator gallops back to the waters of Cumberland Sound when startled on
the beach in the early morning at Fort Clinch State Park.


Visit us across from the Marriott near the beach.


It's hard to find an alligator
when you are searching for
one. Just like the rest of the
natural world these sightings
are unpredictable, even when
you purposely visit "gator-
infested" areas.
Take the gators on the .
Egans Creek Greenway for
.instance. On the north end of
the Greenway one pond by the
trail is carefully marked with
posted signs warning people
about gators. Sure, I've seen
gators here in the past, but not
for ages even though I am
always careful to look. Rumor
has it that a few years ago a
big gator was removed from
this area by officials or
poachers, the rumor has two
versions. But regardless, I
never see a gaitor here, at least
on the few occasions that I've
looked for it.
The south end ofthe
Greenway is another likely
spolfor gators. I've seen them
a nurfber of times along the
canals and at least one recent
year I knew where a nest of
young gators was located. But
lately I've been too deterred
by the mosquitoes to venture
here without preplanning,
long-sleeved shirt and pants
and loads of mosquito repel-
lent. So for now, these gators
are unseen, at least by me.
In Fort Clinch State Park
there are gators and at least
one momma who nests each
year in and around Willow
Pond, visible from the nature
trail. But you have to look
carefully to see them lurking
with eyes only above the duck-
weed. When I go to Willow
Pond specifically to see gators,
I never do.
Even up in the Okefenokee
Swamp in the National Wildlife
Refuge outside of Folkston,
Ga., seeing gators is not
always guaranteed. Here-it all
depends on water levels.


r -, ,
WILD
WAYS

Pat
Foster- Turley


When there
has been a
long dry
spell, and
water is con-
fined to the
deeper chan-
nels and iso-
lated remain-
ing ponds,
seeing
gators is a
sure thing.'
They are
everywhere,
lined up


along the banks of the canals
and resting on islands in the
middle of the last visible water
in the ponds'.
Great. But recently, after a
period of heavy rains, when
Bucko and I took his visiting
mom up to see gators in the .
wildlife refuge we were
nearly skunked. The water lev-
els were high and the gators
were dispersed throughout
the
thousands of acres of wet
swamp. We took the tourist
.boat ride down the canal and
only saw one gator, a station-
ary mom staying near her hid-
den nest in the nearby swamp,
or so the boat driver told us.
And we saw only one other
gator, a gator maybe slated to
be removed soon by officials.
This gator was hanging out in
a borrow-pit along the five-
mile loop road near a sign that
said, "Do Not Feed the
SAlligators." We got out of our
car to show Mom the gator up
close, and sure enough this
gator glided up to us, looking
for a handout more than likely.
A gator like this one, used to
humans bearing gifts, is a haz-
ard to one and all. It becomes.
too familiar with people, and
too likely to be aggressive
towards us, rather than cau-
tious and timid, the preferred
state for these potentially dan-


ators

gerous creatures. This gator is
not long for the world, if it con-
tinues this behavior, encour-
aged by naive people who
want to feed it.
You can look for gators
over and over again and not
find them in their usual spots
when you are seeking them.
But here in North Florida,.
sometimes when you least
expect it an alligatorcrosses
your path. I learned this won-
derful,fact again recently
when I was walking with a
friend at dawn along the.beach
near the river campground at
Fort Clinch State Park. "Look,
ahead, what's that?" There in
front of us a juvenile gator '
about 3-4 feet long was crawl-
ing up from the water along
the beach heading for the
woods. We startled the gator
as much as it startled us. In a
,flash it turned back towards
the river and rushed back to
the protection of the saltwater
where it had come from, invisi-
ble again.
Soon this gator will need to
try again to leave the saltwater
and head into the woods of
Fort Clihch where it will.find
Willow Pond and the other
freshwater sources to drink
from. Gators are freshwater
dwellers, but they do visit
shorelines and swim across
saltwater bodies to escape
their larger gator enemies,
and to increase their hopes of
finding a territory with an
undefended and receptive
mate.
.We were very lucky to see
this gator when we did just
when we least expected it And
that's par for alligator seeking.
Do not seek and you may find,
is the motto. But this only
works if you spend a lot of
time out in nature just noticing
what is around you. Always
carry your camera when you
do so you just never know
what pictures you will end up
with that capture these
moments.

What is the current course record at the

b) 63


c) 65
d) 59


The third round of last weeks
SAT&T National was dosed to
V--S spectators and volunteers for
\ safety reasons after a powerful
wind storm left large trees upended across the
golf course. Mark Russell, the PGA Tour's vice
president of rules and competition, could not
remember another time when a tour event did
not allow fans. "(s too dangerous out here,"
Russell said. "There's a lot of hanging limbs.
There's a lot of debris. It' like a tornado came
through here. It's just not safe." Much of the
damage was caused by a weather
phenomenon called a derecho (duh-RAY-choh),


Answer 'b) 63. The record is currently held dually by a long-lived straight line wind storm that.sweeps
Greg Norman and Nick Price. over a large area at high speed.


With most of us in the work force, it is difficult to have the time to put into practice what is.
necessary to raise our game a level or two. However, it is this practice that will improve
our consistency in the long term and we can practice different approaches even at home
to make progress. One of the best ways is to use your mirror at home to check on your
set up, grip, bal position, alignment and posture.Another method to consistency is to have
the same routine before every shot. We watch the professionals and every time, they go
through the same set of motions before a shot. This practice'should be followed by the amateur golfer
as well to improve our comfort level. Finally, we can not swing one dub harder or softer than the others.
Practice keeping thesame tempo for all the dubs in the bag and the results will be positive.

WEDNESDAY. JULY 4. 2012
NEWS-LEADER/ FE-RNANDINA BEACH. FL


SUVs, hybrids, vans


-nothing beats the Beetle


Often, someone will comment on my lit-
tle car- a mellow yellow Volkswagen con-
vertible. With a smile, they comment,
"Iove your car."
My car; like my hat, is a recognizable.
When I first got my lovable VW it was one
of the few on the island soft yellow with a
black top. Now there are many. My Bug is
transportation, but not much more. It is
easy on gas, but holds little or nothing. If I
make a purchase that is of a certain size, I
have to put the top down to transport it
home. When girlfriends want to go shop-
ping or out to dinner, I can only contribute
1 1/2 seats. Thankfully I have friends with
big cars.
Little didI know that owning a VW
would catapult me into the elite club of


people that have owned or own one of the
funny little German imports. It is a club -
the Bug Club. Lights are flashed at passing
Beetles and, sometimes, kisses stolen.
People share stories about their own Bugs
or Bugs they bought for their kids. Many
of us remember the days of flower chil-
dren and the boxy VW buses in which they
traveled.
So how did the car that looks like a
child's toy become one of the most popular
cars every designed? It dates back to
World War II, when one man, British Army
officer Maj. Ivan Hurst, was put in charge
of a heavily bombed car manufacturing fac-
tory in Germany. He persuaded the British
military to order 20,000 of the cars, and by
1946 the factory was producing 1,000 cars


a month. The car and its town changed
their Nazi-era name to Volkswagen, mean-
ing quite literally the "people's car."
Like one of its competitors the Mini
Cooper, the little car just keeps reinventing
itself. The original-shaped Beetle long out-
lasted any predictions of its lifespan with
sales greater than the Model T Ford.
In high school, I felt quite the celebrity
when my boyfriend of the time pulled up in
one of the trendy little cars. It was classic
black. The noise that came from the back
of the car (where the engine lived) sound-
ed more like a lawnmower than a car
engine. The seats were like lawn chairs.
Don't even ask about heating and cooling.
Many years ago when the Big Guy and
I were in the market for a new car we went.


shopping. It was love at first sight. Sitting
there at the front of the car dealership
looking like an illustration in a children's
book was a VW convertible a perfect yel-
low, with a perky black top. What was not
to love?
So Mellow and I go about our daily
rounds. The original yellow flower that I
put in the vase to the right of the steering
wheel still rides proudly around town.
There are luxury cars, SUVs, sports cars,
hybrids, vans and pickup trucks but there
is only one classic Beetle.

LITERARY LEANINGS

NewbookbyStaver
Mike Staver of The Staver
Group in Fernandina Beach
unmasks the many faces of
fear and explains how to drag
it into the daylight where you
can vanquish it once and for
all in his new book, Leadership
Isn't for Cowards (Wesley,
ISBN: 978-1-118-17683-2,
$24.95). ;
With the economy so
unforgiving
right now,
making,smart
business deci- .ll
sions is critical. S
That's true not
just in terms of
strategy but
also relation-
ships (whether to fire the
toxic high performer or
address a conflict head-on). All
actions have consequences. So
does lack of action. And with
the margin for error so slim,
you want to make sure you're
thinking as coolly and clearly
as possible. Staver's advice?
Don't let fear cloud your deci-
sion-making.
1j[.his boQk, ty.er, ;:-..
,explores the!hid4en-feat that
keep us from taking the quick,
decisive actions courageous
leadership requires, and offers
a wealth of practical tips for
conquering them.
Staver is a business coach
and certified speaking profes-
sional (CSP) who holds a
bachelor's in business and a
master's in psychology Other
published works include the
-bookDo You Know How to
Shut Up?And 51 other life les-
sons that will iake you uncom-
fortable, as well as a chapter in

New novel'
The historical fiction novel
28 Bunkers (Am, 2012, ISBN- ;
10: 1849630909) was recently
released. Ong of the heroep of
the book was based on a
Fernandina native, Thomas S.
Davis'Jr. His father was Capt.
Thomas' S. Davis, also of
Fernandina. Author Elizabeth
Braun of Gulf Breeze said,
"Tom was my grandfather and
Igrew, up hearing the stories
of his exploits as a bomber
pilot in World War II and of fly-
irig the Berlin Airlift. Writing a
book about him had long been
one of my goals."
Braun moved to the
German town
of Ludwigsh-
afen several
years ago and
began to
research her
grandfather's
war history.
She decided to
combine the stories she read
with those she heard to show
life on both sides of the war -
the bombers and the bombed.
The chapters oscillate
between Allied fighter and
bomber pilots and a family liv-
ing in Ludwigshafen from
1941 to the end of the war in
Europe in 1945.
"The novel glosses over the
political situation and concen-
trates on how war affects peo-.
ple on a personal level. People
on both sides of the war expe-
tienced the same hopes,
dreams and fears," said Braun.
Braun holds a bachelor's in
mechanical engineering and a
master's in psychology. She
has lived in the U.S., Kuwait
and Mexico. 28 Bunkers is
available at amazon.com and
Facebook.'Her first novel,
Tampico's Gold, was published
in 2010.
