Chester Road


GARRETT PELICAN
News Leader
Six years from now, a new section
of Chester Road will have grown by
two lanes. But which direction the
right-of-way grows and how that
expansion would affect property own-
ers along the road remains to be seen.
Though construction is still years
away, the Florida Department of
Transportation is exploring the resi-
dential and environmental impacts
posed by three separate plans to
widen a 2.6-mile-stretch of Chester
Road from where the four-lane ends
now off SR 200 to Green Pine Road.
At a sparsely attended public meet-
ing Thursday, FDOT officials fielded
questions from residents concerned
about the proposed development.
John Knight, an FDOT engineer who
answered those questions, said the

debate.
The "left" option, dubbed the "pop-
ular" option by FDOT engineer
Stephen Browning, would expand the
roadway west and displace no homes
and businesses. The "right" option
would expand east and uproot 15
homes and one business. The "cen-
ter" option, which would expand the
right-of-way east and west, would
require the relocation of five homes
and one business.
At the meeting residents of Heron
Isles, a subdivision on the east side of
the roadway, questioned the need for
a median, which would not allow them
to turn immediately left onto Chester
Road from their community. Instead,
they would need to turn right and
travel north before making a U-turn

$1,500



fine for



noise


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader


A Fernandina Beach resident was
ordered to pay more than $1,500 in
fines at a Code Enforcement Appeals
Board hearing on Thursday, plus
administrative costs, for noise viola-
tions within the city.
Amy Durham-Hubbard, of 310 N.
Fifth St., is thefirst resident to go
before the appeals board since the city
appointed a magistrate to hear citation
appeals in May 2011. According to City
Attorney Tammi Bach, other residents
have gone before the magistrate for
citations.
According to testimony from city
police officers at the hearing, Durham-
Hubbard was issued three citations
this year for excessive noise coming
from her home. Police also testified
they had responded to repeated com-
plaints of loud music coming from
Durham-Hubbard's house before
resorting to citations.
The first citation was issued
March 17 for $250; the second was
issued April 15 for $1,000 because it
was within three months of the first;
and the third was issued July 31 for
$250.
On Aug. 10, the city sent Durham-
Hubbard a notice of the CEAB hearing

board tours


'blighted'

riverfront
ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
During a brief walking tour, mem-
bers of the city's new Community
Redevelopment Area advisory board
found that, although limited in size,
the CRA contains a mix of empty ware-
houses, vacant overgrown lots, rail-
road tracks, parking lots, waterfront
businesses, a few residences and stun-
ning river views.
The advisory board, formed in June
to address the Community
SRedevelopment Area, met Sept. 5 to
tour the area in downtown Fernandina
Beach that comprises the CRA, then
met at City Hall to discuss its future.
SA CRA is a special taxing district set
up by cities with the goal of eliminating
blight and enhancing the tax base to
bring in more revenues to improve the
area.
The city's CRA plan was adopted
in 2005 and comprises about 40 acres
and 56 properties near the riverfront,
with public/private ownership about
evenly divided.
After a CRA is created, property
values within the area are "frozen"
from the first year on, and any incre-
mental tax revenues from an increase
in values go into a CRA trust fund.
Unfortunately, the CRA has failed to
bring new business or tax revenues
because of the economic recession
that took hold in 2007.

because none of the citations
had been paid or appealed.
Durham-Hubbard told
the board that she made
attempts to appeal the cita-
tions at City Hall but that
"nobody knew what to do
about it."
However, she also told the
board she was not certain
whom she spoke with at City
Hall about the matter and that
she was aware of the terms of
the citations, which stated she
must either pay the fines or
ask for an appeal in writing
within 10 days.
After a discussion, the
seven-member board agreed
Durham-Hubbard did not pay
the fines or make proper con-
tact with the city to appeal
them, which are violations in
themselves.
Members voted 6-1 that
Durham-Hubbard must pay
$1,500 in fines plus adminis-
trative costs within seven days
or she will be fined $50 per.
day in addition to the original
fines. Member Henry Byrd
voted against.
According to City Code

The project is expected to

According to City Police
Chief James Hurley, the
police department has issued
noise ordinance citations to
two other individuals in the
city in 2011-12, which were
paid.
,"Most folks cooperate with
police upon contact and noti-
fication of the violation,"
Huqley wrote in an email. "We
sometimes issue written warn-
ings for non-compliance or
extreme circumstances
and then gain compliance."
Hurley added he was not
certain of the number of
warnings issued for noise vio-
lations.
A city ordinance was adopt-
ed in 2010 that allows a special
magistrate to replace the coun-
ty court appeals process for
city citation appeals, in order to
save in court costs. The city's
noise ordinance was also
rewritten in 2009 because of
repeated complaints about
excessive noise coming from
restaurants and bars down-
town.

of Show" at the Flagler
Awards, Florida's annual
statewide tourism marketing
competition conducted by
Visit Florida. The awards
presentation took place Sept.
5, during the Florida Gover-
nor's Conference on Tourism
at the Renaissance Orlando at
SedWorld.
One of only three "Best of
Show" awards presented, the
Amelia Island CVB's award
was for entries with market-
ing budgets of less than $1
million.
"The CVB is constantly
working to keep high-quality
materials in the hands of con-
sumers to effectively commu-
nicate our brand message,"
said Nassau County Commis-
sioner Chair Danny Leeper,
chairman of the Amelia Island
Tourist Development Council.
"We,know visitors like the
redesigned guide and find it
very useful, but it's great to
get this kind of recognition in
an industry and an awards-
program as competitive as
this."
According to Gil Langley,
president and CEO of the
Amelia Island CVB, they
needed.a new visitor guide
that addressed changes in vis-
itation patterns and consumer
inquiries, and that better
matched the destination's
evolving brand. Based on the
results of an extensive, island-
wide study and focus group
research, the CVB created a
comprehensive "field guide"
to the island. In addition to
the usual hotel, attraction,
event and other visitor infor-
mation, the new guide
included feature,stories writ-
ten by local writers, new
engaging photography and
QR tags and other elements
connecting the guide with a
new generation of mobile con-
sumers.
The guide was an integral
part of a larger campaign to
redefine the destination, and
contributed to double-digit
increases in website traffic,
revenue and other metrics,"
said Langley.

American dream


is based on work


ingenuity, freedom


It's a sad commentary
when success in the U.S. is
perceived as a negative
attribute to the point of
being resented or ridiculed,
or simply politically incor-
rect.
After all, our country was
built upon the tenets of eco-
nomic freedom, hard work,
ingenuity. It is integral to the
American dream.
Now, it has become the
American scourge. But how
could our country transform
itself from these cherished
standards to one of depend-
ency?
Much of the American
public is relying on some
sort of public assistance
(this is not to be unsympa-
thetic to those who cannot
work). In other words, they
are on the government dole.
Work is a foreign word.
Others just can't find
jobs. Some 20 million
Americans are unemployed
(with more under-
employed). The unemploy-
ment rate is at 8.1 percent,
but the under-employment
rate is closer to 15 percent.
This includes workers who
have accepted lower-paying
jobs than they had before.
Last month, the unem-
ployment rate in the U.S. fell
from 8.3 percent to 8:1 per-
cent, even though fei'er peo-
ple found jobs than expect-
ed. This is because they
have fallen from workforce,
and have stopped looking.
Meanwhile, large corpo-
rations are often demonized,
CEO pay is scrutinized and
wealthy people are profiled
as evil, greedy and corrupt
It's a scary thought, but will
the day come that the gov-
ernment sets wage limits for
private corporations and
workers?


Statis-
Stics show
S that new
immigrants
S- are five
times more
J likely to

millionaires
than people
STEVE'S born in the
MARKET U.S. This is
PLACE mostly
because
immigrants
Steve Nicklas still employ
the ideals
of hard work, enterprise
and living within their
means.
Many immigrants open
their own businesses. But
even entrepreneurs and
small business owners are
being castigated by the
premise that you can't start a
business without the help or
assistance of the federal gov-
ernment
These unfounded beliefs
are perpetuated by the '
broadcast media, and some
print publications. The 24-
hour news channels drive
this message home with
relentless force to where
people actually believe it.
Hopefully, U.S. citizens
who embrace the merits of
hard work and the eventual
reward of success will out-
number those who feel oth-
erwise. It is inherent for our
country's future and suc-
cess (even though that's a
bad word).

Value of hard workers


Hard workers are very
valuable (o any organization,
At the manager level in busi-
ness and the coach level in
sports, being smart and the
hardest worker may be a key
to great success. Urban
Meyer and Tom Coughlin are
two great examples.
However, a number of great
managers in business and
coaches in sports have been
far less successful once they
reached the general manage-
ment level or higher, because
they were not as good at strat-
egy, creative thinking and
assessing talent.
Recognizing the differ-
ence, most company boards
appoint a CEO and a COO
who, rather than being simi-
lar, complement each other.
The CEO is usually the vision-
ary, the innovator and the
strategic thinker, while the
COO is usually the cost cutter
and the executive who drives
execution once a plan is
agreed upon.
Of course, when the CEO
leaves or retires, the board
has a dilemma. The COO,
who has played a major role in
achieving success, will invari-
ably feel he or she deserves to
be considered for the top spot.
Unfortunately, it is very diffi-
cult to evaluate whether an
executive, who has achieved
success by hard work and
execution, can now become
the strategic leader.

Pines increasing
product ivity.
Because of his cost cutting,
especially in the'plant, the
company stayed afloat even
though it was being hurt in
the marketplace by its better-
capitalized competitors.
On the other hand, the
CEO was the exact opposite.
Considered a very innovative
product developer and mar-
keter, he usually came to the
office around 10 each morn-
ing, had coffee, read the news-
papers and then had lunch
with his wife and/or a client.
When he returned from
lunch, he read the mail, met
with his corporate marketing
people to'discuss some ideas
and then, if he didn't have a
client dinner, he left no later
than 5. The COO became
very resentful of the CEO's
apparent lack of effort and
involvement, which soured
their relationship and created
issues for the board.
One afternoon the CEO
and his marketing group
came up with a novel idea for


a new product. IExcited he
developed a prototype and a
marketing plan. The product
was unique and soon caught
the fancy of buyers all over
the world, especially in Japan.
When it was decided two
years later to sell the compa-
ny, American businesses
offered $12-15 million.
However, a Japanese compa-
ny, which loved the ntw prod-
uct and its potential, offered 2
1/2 times that amount and the
owners went from making a.
small profit to becoming big
winners. While all agreed that:
without the COO the compa-
ny might not have survived,
everyone also had to admit
that the CEO's innovative
leadership was the reason for
the great success.
The truth is that compa-
nies need the hard workers
who, by driving for efficiency,
productivity and cost reduc-
tions, are many times the key
to survival. However, the
home runs are usually hit by
the innovative, strategic
thinkers, who may or may not
be willing to do the hard
work.

VIEWPOINT/PAr KEOGI I/FERNANDINABLACI I



Farmers market: lemons to lemonade


The Fernandina Beach Farmers Market is
gone; long live the market! The Fernandina
Beach Farmers Market. has been an enormous
success in so many'ways. Private citizens
worked with government to use a public prop-
erty to create a valuable community asset.
There was no public money involved and no,
public debt was incurred in creating an asset
that served as a business incubator and stimu-
lated traffic for other downtown businesses.
The farmers market was a true value engine
for the city. The market bound together the
larger community that is Amelia Island. All of
us on Amelia Island owe a debt of gratitude to
those who made it work, from its founder
Eileen Shannon Moore to Jan Smith and all
the others involved over the'years.
I think the city should now do two things.
They should host a celebration for all those
who made the farmers market work. We
should give them commendations for their
service and success. Think of it as Japan's
"living National Treasures." Eileen and Jan
and others are Fernandina's Living National
Treasures. They proved that the city of
Fernandina Beach is a place that breeds suc-


cess, respects success and recognizes success
and our farmers market is a powerful example.
Our city is an incubator of success.
Then we should issue an RFQ (Request for
Qualifications) for a market management part-
ner. The current market is not leaving because
it failed. It was too successful, outgrowing its
space. A community could spend $50,000
engaging consultants and doing studies to
prove the case for a public market. Our market
has already demonstrated that the demand is
there.
This can truly be a lemons to lemonade
opportunity. Soi~etimes I think the city of
Fernandina Beach is unique in the western
world. And not in a good way. I am involved in
restaurants downtown. Every holiday season
we debate closing for some time between
Thanksgiving and Christmas. The rest of the
world does as much as one-third of its annual
business between Thanksgiving and
Christmas. One-third! On Amelia Island every-
one heads down to Jacksonville and elsewhere
to do their Christmas shopping. The restau-
rants and other businesses in downtown truly
suffer during the holidays.


Other cities have undertaken very
creative initiatives to attract holiday traffic
back to their declining downtown. Take my
former home, Washington, D.C., Way back
when the downtown area was graced with
large, thriving department stores with holiday-
decorated windows. As suburbs developed
with their huge shopping centers the down-
town retail destinations declined. Prosperous
people living in the burbs had no incentive to
travel downtown. Enter people like my busi-
ness partner Mike Berman (www.diversmar-
kets.net). Mike borrowed the holiday market
concept from Europe and created the DC
Holiday Market in a declining retail area of
D.C, He used city streets to erect tents to retail
arts and crafts during the holiday season.
Where else do you get that unique Christmas
gift like you can at Mike's Holiday Market?
And where else can local artists and craftspeo-
ple retail theit work during the height of the
holiday'shopping season? He created a
holiday atmosphere with carolers and holiday
foods. A street-based shopping mall focused
on local artists and products not available any-
where else.


Fernandina affords a Norman Rockwell
backdrop for a southern holiday market. It can
be the modern holiday shopping center at a
fraction of the cost. Pictures of children on
Santa Claus' knee, local churches providing
holiday music; a snow making machine
attracting all those nostalgic, Yankee grandpar-
ents.
This is a great opportunity for Fernandina.
Our farmers market friends have proven a
downtown market works. Now let's issue an
RFQ for a manager to create and manage a
farmers market and a holiday market. Oh, and
the city should get out of the way. The city
should not prescribe the solution or the loca-
tion or the schedule. Focus on the partner and
then work it out together. Congratulations to
our friends and neighbors at the Plantation
and long live the Fernandina Beach
Market!
With apologies to Andrew Lloyd Webber
and gratitude to all the farmers market folks:
"Don't cry for me Fernandina."
"The truth is I never left you."
That's the way it is if we make it happen.
The island iv big ehottgh for all of us.


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Farmers market
It was with a great sadness
that I learned of the relocation
of the beloved farmers' market
to the Omni location. My hus-
band and I spend our winters in
a lovely beach home on North
Fletcher and one of our weekly
pleasures is a visit to the farm-
ers market in the center of town.
Not only do we enjoy fresh pro-
duce, baked goods, cheeses,
etc., but we usually frequent one
of the many restaurants down-
town for lunch after our shop-
ping is done. And when friends
visit, where do we take them
on Saturday morning but to
breakfast at T Ray's and a visit
to the market. Parking is never
a problem and we enjoy a visit to
other local establishments as
we make our way to the market.
We love our end of the island
with its small-town, friendly,
inviting atmosphere. I hope that
another market appears down-
town before
our return next winter because
-you won't find us at the Omni.

Seou say youwillnot support
You say you will not support


the farmers market in its new
location?
Do you know what it takes to
run "our" farmers market?
Do you know that each ven-
dor is visited and qualified prior
to being "accepted" into the
market?
Do you know that hundreds
of miles are driven across the
region to determine which ven-
dors will meet the quality crite-
ria?
Do you know there are
countless hours of creating mar-
keting pieces and writing arti-
cles and emails?
Do you know that not a cent
has been asked for pay for
organizing the event, the vol-
unteers, the set-up?
Do you know that harass-
ment telephone calls, negative
voices at city commission meet-
ings are heard constantly?
Oh, you did not know that?
That is because Jan Smith,
the one person who has made
the farmers market what you
love today is a true profes-
sional. ,
Jan Smith has worked li'rc-
lessly without asking for a cent
but asking only for the support
of our locals (you) and city com-
missioners


Jan Smith has grown the
farmers market participation
from 40 to 800 every Saturday.
Jan Smith managed the "no
dog policy" and the disapprov-
ing comments so the farmers
market would be better for "all"
when the crowds grew.
Jan Smith dealt with nega-
tive comments and harassing
telephone calls from our "locals"
about the parking situation.
Jan Smith has done and con-
tinues to do what she feels Ilest
for her vendors and for "you."
Next time you see Jan Smith
you should thank her, because
without her there would be no
farmers market as we know it
today.
Jan Smith knows what is
best for the farmers market and
"you."
Trust her leadership and go
to the farmers market some-
thing tells me it will be better
for "all."

(Charles) Corbett brought up
the "Forward Fernandina" proj-
ect and proposed the commis-
sion vote on paying back the
nearly $1.9 million loan, rather
than complete important proj-
ects to our community. Com-
missioner (Tim) Poynter put
together a presentation to help
explain the "extra" cost to citi-
zens as a result of Forward
SFernandina ("City commission:
3 steps 'Forward,' 2 steps back,"
,Sept 7).
I myself learned the money
to.pay back the loan does not
come from our property taxes
but rather franchise fees paid
monthly with our utilities. It
boiled down to 55 cents for
every $100 on a utility bill that
is spent on Forward Fernan-
dina. I spend more than 55
cents per month throwing
change into the fountain down-
town with my son. Ultimately,
this project is funding the
much-needed renovation of the
library, fixing the damaged rail-
road crossing at Centre Street
,nd possibly opening up
Alachua and making it more
viable for businesses. It also
could mean repairing the old
train depot
During the meeting, Mayor
(Arlene) Filkoff tried to clarify
with Mr. Corbett's request to
vote on paying back the loan
by asking if this meant we
would not move forward on
renovating the library? His
response was "Yes." I stood up
to speak (as I have several
times over the last several
months) and let Mr. Corbett
know that our library deserves
our attention; it should be the
pillar of our community, and I
asked if he had grandchildren
that used the library? When I
was done speaking, his
response was, "Thank you for
your unkind words."
this is not the first time I
have seen Mr. Corbett treat the
citizens with disrespect Once,
he actually got up and walked
out while another citizen spoke.
I have emailed him at least
three times, and the last time I
requested the commissioners
confirm they received my
email. I have still not heard
from Mr. Corbett and that was
June..It seems he only hears
from citizens, who agree with
him. I am embarrassed that he
represents the fine city of
Fernandina Beach.

An analysis of the city budget


The local budget season is mercifully conm-
ing to a close so it's time to do some budget
analysis.
First, from reading about and listening to
decision-makers you'd think they were just
emerging from sessions devoted to finding
long-lost secrets of the universe, or something
really complicated, at least for me, like frac-
tions.
Second, it's clear that this city commission is
so divided, personally, politically and philosoph-
ically, that reaching consensus on priorities that
would move this city forward is going to be dif-
ficult, if not impossible.
Third, in order for consensus-building to
happen someone has to step forward and
assume a leadership role take control of the
dais and encourage commissioners to put their
personal animosities aside, their personal politi-
cal goals too, and start acting in the best inter-
est of the people of Fernandina Beach.
Fourth, decision-making by commissions
since 2008 has been fantasy-based and those
fantasies have been expensive and will be until
some commission some time in the future
takes the painful road back to reality.
Fifth, some things were included in the
budget that shouldn't have been. Keep in mind
that lists like these are purely subjective; recog-
nizing that subjectivity and understanding,that
these lists may not be complete, here's mine:
1. Any expenditures having to do with
Forward Fernandina, save for the $600,000 for
the library. Commissioner Corbett is right, pay
back the remainder of the $2 million loan and
eliminate the debt service. Commissioner
Poynter's slide show detailing past bond issues
and commission borrowing as justification for
the loan was about as relevant as a similar pres-
entatiop to the American Medical Association
demonstrating the appropriateness of bleeding


as a cure for the flu. Past bor-
rowings were for specific pur-
posces, the82 'million loan was
for projects that remain to this
dlay unspecified.
2. A roughly $70,000 pay-
mnenl to the lobbyist. At some
Point the commission should
ask for a summary of the proj-
7DEBATEI ects completed and revenues
received for that expenditure.
AND Any summary should not
TACELE include revenue from the,
FAA oi FI)OT Yfor the airport.
.'" The city, pre-lobbyist,
Ron Sapp received millions of dollars
for the airport and would con-
tinue to receive those dollars whether thelob-
byist was there or not. Also absent from the
summary should be any revenue associated
with beach renourishment. The city, the
Congress and the Army Corps of Engineers
entered into the current agreement long before.
the lobbyist came on the scene. Absent those
two,.it would be interesting to see the summa-
ry.
3. The $25,000 payment to the county's eco-
nomic development board. As county residents
we already pay 28 percent of that board's
expenditures, thus an additional $25,000 makes
no sense.
Now, here are a few things I wish had been
included in the budget:
1. Money for a canoe/kayak launch at
Atlantic and Egans Creek. This launch would
include a railed deck, suitable to accommodate
the many fishermen/women who frequent the
area.
2. Money to put together a public/private
agreement that would bring a fishing pier to
Main Beach. This pier would be a focal point


for the area and would encourage not only fish-
ing, but would be a gathering place for families
and people in the area.
3, Money to put together a public/private
agreement that would bring a farmers and fish-
erman's market to the city's waterfront. For
years I've favored a mini-, San Francisco-like
fisherman's wharf project for ith- r firrln rit I
think the pier at the beach and the market on
the waterfront would complement each other
perfectly.
I know money, money, money but some-
times things have to be done, things have to be
accomplished. Today, government is all about
"saving three cents and a length of pipe," as
George Bailey says in "It's a Wonderful Life."
But, at least for me, building a pier as a focal
point at Main Beach, or a farmers/fisherman's
market at the waterfront, or a canoe/kayak
launch at Egans Creek moves our city forward
and should at least be considered during the
process for future budgets.
That kind of thinking is fantasy-based, but
so was the $6 million bond issue and Main
Beach revitalization, and so was opening over
40 beach accesses and the Peck Center and
Seaside and North Beach parks.
Those were different times, I know, but
maybe it's time we moved away from phantom
projects, lobbyists and funding county projects
we're already paying for. Maybe ifwe move
away from the politics of animosity and deci-
sion-making that is purely personal and toward
the politics of consensus, maybe then we can
get things done, not just getting things
stopped.
A pier at Main Beach, a canoe/kayak,
launch at Egans Creek and a farmer's/fisher-
man's market at the waterfront. Fantasy-based
thinking, maybe, but I'm sticking with them.
SRon Sapp is former city commissioner.


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Beachdr ving
and annexaton
The annexation of the county prop-
erty from the city limits to Peters Point
by the Sandpiper Association is out
for one thing: to stop beach driving
and parking at Peters Point. When the
people at Sandpiper purchased their
condo there was driving on the beach
and they bought knowing that.
For the people that cannot afford
properties on the beach we have
Peters Point. The one area where you
can have lots of room for parking on
the beach. We can park, put out our
tent for shade, put out the chairs and
spend the day with our family at the
beach. This is paradise and what
Fernandina Beach is all about for all
people.
Times are still tough for a lot of
folk that visit the island and.not all can.
afford to stay on the beach. Peters
Point makes it possible for them to
enjoy the beach. We have only a few
places that we can still drive and park
on the beach. This is the one thing
lots of visitors love about Fernandina
Beach. Taking this small area of the
beach away from me and my family
and hundreds of other people so a
handful of people can benefit is just not
right.
All residents of Amelia Island and
Fernandina Beach who want to keep

Medicare
I was surprised and shocked when
I read the Viewpoint by Daniel
Berman (Sept. 5) concerning
Medicare, and specifically the
Romney/Ryan Plan. I suggest that
everyone concerned take the time to
do some research on his own. When
doing so, I found that nothing changes
for current seniors and those 55 and
above nearing retirement. Traditional
Medicare will still be run by the gov-
ernment, but have competition from
private plans, an option offered to
those under the age of 55. Individuals
of this age group may choose to stay
on the Medicare plan that is now
offered, or choose a private plan, the
so-called "voucher plan" which will be
subsidized by the government. There
is no risk, as the Romney Website
states, that "all insurance :plans must
offer coverage at least comparable to
what Medicare provides today." Also,
those opting for lower cost plans may
keep any savings from the govern-
ment subsidy and apply to other needs.
The plan states that "with.insurers
competing against each other to pro-
vide the best possible value to cus-
tomers, efficiency and quality will
improve and costs,will decline." There
would, no doubt, be access to med-
ical plans across state lines to increase
competition and choice. Yes, the free
market approach has a way of increas-
ing efficiency and value while reduc-
ing cost. Considering the waste, fraud
and abuse associated with govern-
ment programs, the free market
approach would be a tremendous


improvement!
President Obama has had more
than three years in office, two during
which the Democrats controlled both
the House and the Senate. During this
time he attacked serious proposals to
preserve and strengthen America's
entitlement programs, and instead
cut billions of dollars to the Medicare
program. He has also put into place a
bureaucratic board that may one day
ration care to seniors when funds are
scarce. I believe it is time to take the
Romney/Ryan option seriously, as it
will save and strengthen Medicare.
With a $16 trillion debt in this country,
serious thought must be given to this
issue in order to preserve the pro-
gram for future generations.

Po Ucal endorm6 ent i
I object to your agreeing for Mr.
Berman to endorse a political party
on your opinion page ("Medicare: the
election debate," Sept. 5). He should
be required to take out a paid political
advertisement. He is endorsing -.

This endorsement does not belong

Socdalistagenda'
The News-Leader treated us (Aug.
29) to another intellectually vacant
opinion by local curmudgeon Ronnie
Sapp. Titled "Power brokers control
politics," Sapp bemoans the fact that


After previously using the weasel
words "some say," Sapp goes on to
shamelessly use the "one person"
'(n'amlelssly of course) who is more
cynical and skeptical than I, said the
other dpy, "What difference does it
make which gang of right-wingers

,Cleil *hat "one person" is longing for

that for a thinking political obserIva-

months.
Finally, and as Ron says, "this is
the scary part," Sapp is a teacher in the
Fernandina Beach schools. As such,
he has unfettered control over a cap-
tive audience of impressionable young-
sters, relentlessly pandering his social-
ist agenda.

Science and
the resurrecon
Re: "GOP's 'Anti-science' Commit-
tee," Aug. 31. This article states,
"Anyone who believes in the resur-
rection, for example, holds an anti-sci-
entific view. .." The Oxford English
Dictionary states that for something to
be scientific it must consist of sys-
tematic observation, measurement
and experimentation to formulate, test
and modify a hypothesis. The resur-
rection of Christ was observed by
approximately 500 witnesses. The writ-
ten history of this observation and its
preservation from generation to gen-
eration is clearly documented in both
secular as well as sacred history. The
history stated in the Bible has been
repeatedly evidenced through arche-
ology. History has also recorded the
fulfillment of countless prophesies in
the Bible. The resurrection is defi-
.nitely not inti-science.
Repenting and believing in Christ
for salvation is definitely an act of faith
instead of science. Christianity con-
tains a blend of science, reason and
faith. Now if we examine the concept
of atheism we have a view that is clear-
ly not scientific. Atheism requires the
first something to come from noth-
ing. Atheism also requires the first
movement to have occurred sponta-
neously with no cause. Neither of
these requirements has ever been
observed, measured or formulated
into a hypothesis. In fact, both of these
stances would require one to ignore
untold numbers of experimentation
and observations that teach us that
, ,i,. il i ing must come from something
anrd that movement must have a cause.
Atheists such as Richard Dawkins
attempt to argue away the existence of
God. I)awkins book 7he God Delusion
attempts to use the awe inspiring
power of the laws of physics to state
tha; there is no need for God. When
reading )awkins I could not find an


BOB ENGLEHART/THE HARTFORD COURANT

answer to the initial origin of those
laws of physics.
This debate is not one that will be
resolved in the editorial pages of news-
papers. My concern is with the grow-
ing trend of Democrats to attack
Christianity., This growing trend is
making it more uncomfortable for
someone who believes the Bible and
the teachings of Christ to associate
with the Democratic Party. For many
Christians it is very frustrating to be
pushed out ofa party with which they
may agree on other issues such as
health care and the environment
While Jason Stanford insinuates
that the GOP has an "Anti-science"
Committee it seems clear that the
Democrats have an "Anti-Christ"
Committee. I highly doubt that Jesus
would be either a Democrat or a
Republican but at least I have never
had to support a GOP consultant or
activist as they attacked my savior.

Yulee

Betteroff?
I am responding to the Opinion
. page of Sept. 7 wherein Carla Voisard
of Yulee provided her opinion in a
Viewpoint.I guess that I should not be
surprised that Ms. Voisard, a
Democratic State Commiteewoman
from Nassau County, would state that
"she (and the region) is better off than
she was four years ago." As a party
official, would she state otherwise?
Rather than listen to someone who
speaks for the Democratic Party, I
believe your readers would receive
far better guidance from various "unaf-
filiated" or "independent" voters.
Moreover, rather than voicing the sta-
tus of the region alone, one would
think that a broade- approach would
be more effective are the citizens of
the United States of America, wher-
ever they reside, better off now than
four years ago?
I would hope that a number of your
readers would communicate what they
have found. I, for one, may be better
off now, but I do believe a majority of
citizens are not as fortunate as myself
or Ms. Voisard have been, and my
concern is for those who have lost
their jobs or are undereinployed that
I am concerned about.

Ospreys abound

Hummingbirds are
plentiful in

It doesn't take a scientist to notice that
autumn is arriving ahead of schedule.
The adtumn equinox, when the hours

ness, is not until Sept. 22, This officially
marks the first day of fall. But look
around you. Here on Amelia Island the
parking lots are less crowded, the kids
are in school and many of us feel the
island is our own again. Labor Day for
most of us truly marks "the end of sum-
mer."
7The wildlife around us marks autumn
too, but not by any holiday or date on the
calendar. As the temperature changes, no
matter the date, wildlife
follows this biological
rhythm.
Late summer is the
time when mullet run in .
our near shore waters
and ospreys gather here

Young ospreys need no help at all to
nab a mullet for dinner this time of year.
All they need is a high vantage point to
watch from, some quick action and some
sharp talons and a fish is theirs. It's easy
to see ospreys now, just look up on any
, poles or high perches near the water and
soon enough you'll spot one. Or two or
three. Or even, as is the case sometimes,
an osprey on every pole in the Fort
Clinch beach parking lot!
At least those parking lot poles and
these vantage points are here to stay. The
ospreys down at the south end state parks
have more difficulties than usual this fall.
Until this year the best place to watch the
osprey/mullet games has been the south
end fishermen's parking lot on Little
Talbot Island. Last year's storms finally
toppled all the dead trees in this area, and
now there's only room for one osprey or
so, certainly not the handful that used this
area to fish in years previous.
Ospreys are not the only fish-eating
birds visible around the mullet runs this
time of year. If you're lucky you just might
see a bald eagle also near the ocean keep-
ing an eye out for mullet, or for ospreys
with mullet that they can help themselves

mature bald eagle in the dunes of Fort

eyes open, y6u might see an eagle around
the coast too.
Other birds in our area know that win-
ter is coming and it's time to shift gears.
This is the last part of the season where
Syou might be able to see roseate spoon-
bills feeding in our marshes or roosting in
trees and snags nearby. If our winters are
mild, some have been known to hang
around, but don't count on it. Most will.
move south.
And if you've been watching humming-
birds visiting your nectar feeders, bottle-
brush flowers or other nectar sources,
enjoy them while you can. For a few
weeks around this time of year humming-
birds are abundant in our backyards as
the birds from further north pass through
our area for some nectar sips before head-
ing further south. The hummingbirds
that have spent the summer in our neck
of the woods will also be leaving soon.
Likewise, our woods are full of war-
blers now, small birds that are difficult to
see in the foliage but worth looking for.
Accomplished birdwatchers spot them by
their calls and their movements in the
trees. They can count many different
species in just one outing, most in various
patterns of brown, yellow and white, very
distinctive if you know what to look for.
But look quickly, because these birds too
are heading south.
But don't worry, folks, when one com-
munity of birds leaves us in the fall, the
next gang moves in. It's only a matter of a
few weeks before the large white pelicans
that breed in the north central parts of
North America come down to spend their
winter in our marshes.
There's never a dull time for birds,
autumn, winter, spring or summer in the
land we call home. Anyone who enjoys
nature can enjoy it here year round. It's
another reason to love Amelia Island!

TALLAHASSEE A study
by the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration found 37
percent of Americans admitted
to falling asleep behind the
wheel. Sleepiness slows reac-
tion time, decreases awareness,
impairs judgment and increas-
es the risk of crashing.
The Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles 'and the Florida
Department of Transportation.
are teaming up with lawmakers
and safety advocates during the
week to get out the message of
the dangers of drowsy driving.
"Being alert behind the
wheel is critical to highway safe-
ty," said DHSMV Executive
DirectorJulie L Jones. "Studies
show the fatality rate is higher
for crashes where a driver falls
asleep." "It is important for
everyone behind the wheel to
understand the dangers of
drowsy driving," said FDOT
Secretary Ananth Prasad.'
"Making the decision to pull
into a rest area when fatigued
can save lives."
Rep. Alan Williams, District
8, said, "Drowsy driving can be
just as dangerous as drunk driv-
ing. We must do all we can to
raise awareness of the dangers
of driving drowsy to help save
lives."
Williams sponsored a bill
designating a drowsy driving
week in memory of 8-year-old
Ronshay Dugans, who was
killed in 2008 when her bus was
hit by a driver of a cement truck
who fell asleep at the wheel
Ronshay Dugan's aunt, Josie
West, said she thinks of


ty driving
Ronshay every day and hopes
the week prompts people to
think about their level of alert-
ness before getting behind the
wheeL "Ronshay was gone in
an instant when the drowsy
truck driver nodded off. His
decision to drive while extreme-
ly tired tragically took her life."
According' to NHTSA,
though evidence is limited,
since there is no test to quanti-
fy Ye pofljeepinqp& a 001h
sitte, riks iforarowsy drn#'fg'
crashes are:
Sleep loss
Driving patterns (driving
between midnight and 6 am.,
driving a substantial number of
miles each day, driving in the
midafternoon and driving for
long periods without taking a
break)
*. Use of sedating medica-
tions
Untreated or unrecog-
nized sleep disorders
Consumption of alcohol
According to NHTSA, a typ-
ical crash related to sleepiness
has the following characteris-
tics:
It occurs during the late
night, early morning or after-
noon.
The crash is serious.
A single vehicle leaves the
roadway.
The crash occurs on a
high-speed road.
The driver does not
attempt to avoid the crash.
The driver is alone in the
vehicle.

drowsy driving, go to

When should you not


answer the phone?


The next time your tele-
phone rings, you may want to
check to see who is calling
before you answer. We all know
that seniors are more trusting
than most. If the caller explains
that your grandchild is in trou-
ble in a foreign country or that
you have won the Publisher's
Clearing House grand prize,
you may actually believe the
message. Do not fall for these
two stories that are making the
rounds again in Northeast
Florida.
If your phone does show the
caller's number, take a good
look at the numbers preceding
the last seven digits. Many of
the scam calls today are coming
from small countries in Africa-
Nigeria's country code is 234,
Somalia's is 252 and Sudan's is
249. Other scam calls come
from Jamaica (876),. Canada
(204, 613) and London,
England (+44 226), Don't
answer international calls
unless expecting them from
family or friends.
Last week Seniorsvs. Crime
was contacted by a lady from
Fernandina Beach. She had
received a call from an official
sounding person who
announced that she had won
the Publishers Clearing House
grand prize. To claim her prize
money she had to go to
Walmart and send a process-
ing fee to the company. The fee
was in the form of a money
order for $500. She was told to
be sure to bring her debit card.
When she asked the caller why
a check wouldn't do when the
prize was delivered to her door,
the caller hung up the phone.
She asked us the question,
"How did they get my phone
number?" The only answers we
could think of were either her
name was on a list of people
who entered contests (these
lists are commonly sold and
passed around) or the scam-
mers were targeting this area
as they knew there were older
folks with money here. Thank
goodness this potential victim
did not fall for the phony story
that she was a grand prizewin-
ner.
Agai~. last week we were
contacted by a resident of
Jacksonville. She told us that
h.,ir m ilhth-.i -lw.latl received
a call from a iperoAn that sound-
ed like her son. The "son" told
his grandmother that he had


Seniors vs Crime
A St Llil I'rol. r tifi' f-lrlida .l1irtuvuyeneral


been arrested in a foreign coun-
try while on vacation anid need-
ed $2,600 to get out of jail and
back to the USA. He did not
want his mother to know about
his indiscretion. Fortunately
the suspicious grandmother
called the mother to see if she
knew of his whereabouts The
son was in his room asleep
Luckily another scammer was
thwarted in his efforts to make
an easy buck,
A few important thoughts
to leave you with:
1. If you have not'entered a'
contest, do fnot expectto win a
lottery, monetary prize or a new
car. If the caller with the good
news realizes you are on to him.
he will be rude and hang up on
you, 13;at him to the punch and
hang up first. Do not.spend,
money to claim a prize a'
stranger tells you that you have
won.
2. The "Grandma" scam is
alive and well. It takes on dif-
ferent forms but the main
scheme revolves around a rel-
ative or friend who has been
robbed or incarcerated while
on a trip to Mexico, Jamaica,
England, Panama or some sim-
ilar travel destination. The pre-
tend victim needs money and is
always afraid to tell his parents.
The scammers will usually
know the victim's name and
other relevant family informa-
tion. Often the information
comes from social media sites.
3. The scammer's preferred
method of payment is a wire or
money order and involves
requesting you to go to a
Walmart store or a Western
Union office and send them
money. Transactions of this
nature are hard to trace.
Recovery is nearly impossible if
the money is sent outside this
country. When you hear that'
request from anyone in return
for you being able to claim your
winnings, it is a scam.
Wewant to be clear that nei-
ther Walmart nor Western
Union have done anything
wrong but the a;rn artists are
exploiting their services.
Instead of the intention of pro-
viding a needed service, people


are being hurt. To make these
businesses aware of a gry, i ng
problem, Seniors vs. Ciin e- ill
be visiting the managers of
these local cstablihi ments this
week. We will alert them of this
situation and request they
implement stronger controls to
prevent scam artists from tak-
ing advantage of Nassau
County residents

FWCapprwes drftruks forfalcoy
At its meeting in Tampa, the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission
approved draft rule amendments regarding fal-
conry, wildlife rehabilitation and taking of
wildlife on roads and rights-of-way.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the
FWC currently share regulatory authority for
this practice, including issuing permits for fal-
coners. However, the USFWS is now relin-
quishing its responsibilities to states.
"For falconry to continue to be allowed in
Florida, the FWC must amend rules and regu-
lations to meet or exceed federal standards
and they must be certified by the Service,"
said Maj. Curtis Brown, who presented the
amendments.
This includes areas like eligibility require-
ments for falconers; details regarding posses-
sion ofgolden eagles; requirements for band-
ing, reporting and release of birds; permitting
for seasonal residents and visitors; educational
display; rehabilitation; and possession of prey.
"In addition to those areas, which must
comply with the federal standards, FWC staff
also included some new amendments," Brown
said.
FWC staff held public workshops and
worked closely with stakeholders on their
needs and concerns to develop the amend-
ments.
The topics addressed include classification
of falconers; reinstatement of lapsed permits;
restoration of suspended or revoked permits;
the take, acquisition and transportation of rap-
tors; housing and temporary care; feathers
and carcasses of raptors; propagation; and the
practice of falconry in the vicinity of threat-
ened and endangered species.
Commissioners discussed, heard public
comment and ultimately approved the draft
amendments as presented by staff with the
direction for staff to research and consider
adding-merlins for use by apprentice falcon-
ers. The complete draft amtendments,1qh '.
pertain to rules 68A-9.005, 69A-9.006 and 6gA-
4.008, can be viewed online at myfwc.com and
will be presented for final public hearing at the
February 2013 commission meeting.

Rule Changes."

Flodapantdhrpopulao," rn
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, working in partnership with the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, plans to docu-
ment where panthers are roaming beyond
south Florida and develop the best practices to
help people and panthers coexist.
The efforts described in the staff report at
the FWC's Commission meeting in Tampa
would aid a potential northward expansion of
the range of breeding panthers as part of the
next steps in panther population recovery.
"Panther expansion northward is going to
be, in large part, due to cooperation with pri-
vate landowners," said Commission Chairman
Kenneth Wright.
The panther needs a large area to roam, as
much as 200 square miles for an adult male. In
south Florida, panthers have access to federal-
,ly managed public lands such as Everglades
National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve
and the Panther National Wildlife Refuge in
addition to state and privately owned lands. In
the southern part of central Florida, a key area
for potential expansion of the large cat, more
panther habitat is privately owned.
"We have room for more panther popula-
tion growth as long as we manage areas suc-
cessfully," said Commissioner Ronald
Bergeron, who suggested it should be a priori-
ty both to conserve the core population in
south Florida and prepare for expansion north
of the Calooshgitchee River. "We have to tar-
get the heart of where the panthers are, and
continue to move forward with good habitat

Gopher oroise onservao plan
Five years after creating Florida's first
Gopher Tortoise Management Plan, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission approved a revised plan intended
to guide continued recovery of the gopher tor-
toise through 2022. The plan includes conser-
vation of both the gopher tortoise and species
inhabiting its burrows, including the indigo
snake, Florida pine snake, gopher frog and
Florida mouse.
"We must consider the whole gopher tor-
toise community. Gopher tortoise burrows are
extensive, typically 6 feet deep and 15 feet
long, and more than 350 other animals depend
on them for food and shelter," said Deborah
Burr, the FWC's gopher tortoise plan coordi-
nator. "Florida plans to focus on conserving
both the gopher tortoise and other wildlife liv-
ing in its burrowss"
The overall goal fl ihe revised Gopher

MyFWC.com/Goph( rTortoise, is to restore
and maintain secure, viable populations
throughout Florida so the species no longer
warrants listing.
Now a state-threatened species, the gopher
tortoise is also a candidate for listing as a fed-
erally threatened species. The FWC will use
the new plan to collaborate with numerous
partners and work toward achieving a level of
gopher tortoise conservation that would assist
in precluding the need to list the species

The management changes will affect har-

regulations extend into federal waters for all
species listed above, with the exception of

Phyllis Davis, executive director of the Amelia Island
Museum of History, above, spoke to the Rotary Club of
Amelia Island Sunrise about museum operations while
education director Gray Edenfield shared his knowledge
of the programs offered.
The Amelia Island Museum of History, housed in the
former Nassau County jail at 233 South Third St, will
celebrate its 35th anniversary in November.
In 2003 the museum completed a nearly half-million-
dollar renovation, creating new professionally designed
exhibits throughout the first floor. It recently opened a
modern research facility on the second floor and has
expanded outreach programs to the community includ-
ing an oral history tour, walking tour, historic pub crawl,
ghost tours and a regular schedule of lectures, events
and special exhibits. Renovations are planned this year
to create a-children's section as well as activity areas
within existing exhibits.
As a nonprofit, the museum depends on grants, mem-
bership dues and community support to reach its yearly
$350,000 budget. Four full-time and three part-time
employees manage the daily running of the museum with
help from more than 200 volunteers and 600 members.

to the club, noting that recruiting more athletes and coaches
for Special Olympics in Nassau County is a top priority.
Currently, the county has some 80 athletes, but could
accommodate many more. Emma has trained as a Special
Olympics Global Messenger and speaks to schools and other

Blues Festival kicks off Friday

For the News-Leader --**-- I M


I The second annual Amelia
Island Blues FestivalF Friday
through Sunday at Main Beach
Park in Fernandina Beach will
feature beer, barbecue, the
beach and plenty of blues music
all weekend long.
The festival kicks off Friday
at 5 p.m. with Mojo Chillen from
Jacksonville and Fernandina
Beach's own Beech Street Blues
Band, followed by headliners
Flannel Church with Duane
Trucks and headliner Shane
Dwiglt.
On Saturday, concerts begin
at noon, featuring an array of
musicians and headliners Sean'
Chambers, Albert Castiglia and
"Queen of the Blues" Shemekia
Copeland.
Chambers' brand of blues is
a po-frills blend of Chicago,
Texas and Delta styles played
with an understated sense of
ferocity. Castiglia, whose latest
album, Living the Dream, was
released this summer, is a
favorite high-energy performer
at blues festivals across the
country. Copeland's passion for
singing, matched with her huge,
blast-furnace voice, gives her
music a timeless power and a
heart-pounding urgency. Aptly
named "Queen of the Blues,"
Copeland began her career
singing at Harlem's famed
Cotton Club when she was just
eight years old.
Sunday's concerts kick off
with Kim Reteguiz and the
Black Cat Bones, from
Jacksonville, winner of the
Battle of the Blues competition,
held earlier in the year. Reteguiz
is known regionally as a vocal
powerhouse with a dynamic

Cats Angels appreciates


Athena is one of our staffs
all-time favorites, a beautiful,
kind-hearted little Labrador
Retriever mix. She needs a
quiet, loving home, and in
return she'll be the best
friend you could ever imag-
ine. She came to us as a stray
last April at about 5 months
old and was adopted, but
when we recently got her
back she was very afraid and
had suffered an injury. We
don't know what happened,
but we do know that we have
regained her trust and she is
back to being the super-
sweet, gentle little girl she
was before. She is kind and
intelligent, and extremely
affectionate she loves to be
petted and loves to cuddle.
She walks very well on her
leash and gets along great
with people, children and
other dogs. She likes to keep
a clean kennel and really aims
to please you, so if she's not
already housetrained she
should learn easily. She needs
to be an inside dog and is a
great size for that, since she's
not as big as the usual
Labrador Retriever mix, and
probably won't get much big-
ger. She has a beautiful black-
and-white coat with a cute lit-
tle white tip on her tail. She
also has million-dollar smile,

Ike is a sweet, well-man-

handsome gray Domestic
Short Hair mix, about 3 years
old. He gets along well with
the other cats in our cattery,
