Wasting millions of dollars?


. *'id -.


FOY MALOY/NEWS-LEADER
Beachfront homeowner Dave.Bowman objects to the annual tilling of the beach because it destroys sea oats he has planted there. Bowman
believes growing sea oats is a better solution to beach renourishment than multimillion-dollar construction projects. This is the view from
Bowman's property as the beach was tilled in. 2011.

Beachfront homeowner won't take no for an answer


GARRETT PELICAN
News-Leader
Dave Bowman is passionate'about
sea oats, especially the ones he's
planted on the beach outside his
Amelia Island home. He's so pas-
slunal'- :llat the- lii al lui'c he came to
public attention about sea oats it was
for allegedly wielding a hoe to block
a realtor and a client from driving on
them.
Bowman ultimately helped per-
suade the county to b;in.driving on
that section of beach except for offi-
cial vehicles, including sheriff's
deputies. Now he's trying to stop
them from driving on his oats.
And he wants to stop routine
beach maintenance there too, which
he maintains is too expensive and
doesn't work as well as his sea oats.
Bowman, like other, south end resi-
dents, bears the cost of beach renour-
ishment on top of the $29,000 a year
he pays in property taxes for his lav-
ish beachfront home.
Bowman has solicited the
Governor's Office, which he says sent
a liaison from the Deplartment 'of
Environmental Protection, state Rep.
Janet Adkins,' state Sen. Aaron Bean
and now county commissioners to
join his cause.
"I had Steve Kelley out yesterday.
I've got Danny Leeper and Pat
Edwards coming out tomorrow.
Barry (Holloway)'s coming out
Monday. Junior (Boatright)'s in the

"The beach has always been very
important to me personally, as well as
all the other people iviing on the
island," said SAISSA t'l,-id,-ni Bob
M'lar ti,., ddsdiug thalji'..: \-i n ,ti' .l--
maintenance as "an absolute neces-,
sity."
Bowman disagrees. He plants and
tends to sea oats on the beach behind
his property, which he says would
naturally maintain the beach and dune
system if people and vehicles stopped
disturbing the plants and allowed
them to grow.
"The people on SAISSA are nice
people; it's just they've been mis-
guided and misled," he said. "You
know what we need to do right now?
Let it alone and keep the vehicles off
it."
"It took me two afternoons, about
eight hours, to plant the sea oats I
planted. I spend very little time with
it; it's not necessary to spend a lot of
time with it," added Bowman, though
he previously said he has had to turn
"hundreds of people" away from his
patch of oats when they tried to drive
or walk over it. He's also spent time
lobbying public officials to stop the till-
ing.

ho',piiiIl ... But they all understand,"
he said last week.
They may understand, but there's
no evidence yet that the officials will
ban police vehicles from patrolling
the south end's beach or do away
with planned beach, maintenance
there.
County commissioners did agree .
Monday night to ask the county's lob-
byist to work with state government
to determine if the beach must be
routinely tilled as part of beach main-
tenance. That tilling plows under
Bowman's oats, and he objects to it.
Bowman said beach renourish-
ment, a series of construction proj-
ects that periodically add millions of
yards of sand to a 3-plus-mile stretch
of shoreline at the southern end of
Amelia Island, is too expensive a solu-
tion to the problem. The multimillion-
dollar effort is funded through the
South Amelia Island Shore
Stabilization Association Inc. (SAIS-
SA), a special taxing district com-
1 prised of south end residents and
property owners.
Since 1994, SAISSA has spent


more than $20 million on beach main-
tenance. The rnost recent phase,
undertaken in May 2011, added more
than 2 million cubic yards of sand to
the beach and cost about $9.4 mil-
lion. (Bowman estimates the costs
exceed $55 million since 1992.)
Bowman, a former member of
SAISSA's board of directors, says the
process is little more than a money
grab by Olsen Associates of
Jacksonville, the project's longstand-
. ing engineering consultant, and local
attorney and lobbyist Buddy Jacobs.
"I'm not in favor of what we've
been doing. I'm not in favor of stu-
pidity. I'm not in favor of wasting tens
of millions of dollars for the enjoy-
ment of an engineer, that's what I'm
not in favor of," said Bowman. "It just
makes a lot of money for Buddy
Jacobs and Erik Olsen."
But advocates say renourishment.
is needed to sustain the beach and
curb the effects of erosion, which
washes away portions of the beach
over time. The ongoing beach main-
tenance preserves property values
there and generates income from the

COA plan



'illegal'

GARRETT PELICAN
News Leader
It would be "illegal" for the Nassau
County Commission to give the
Council on Aging a 14th Street prop-
erty the agency plans to mortgage for
a $2 million loan, the county's legal
counsel ruled last week.
In a memo to commissioners Jan.
23, Nassau County Attorney David
Hallman said the ps,- ti;li i, oftaxpay-
'ers having to foot the bill, without voter
approval, if the council defaulted on
its mortgage would be illegal and "not
consistent with the spirit of the law."
He also said giving the property
away would prevent the county from
replacing the council as Nassau's elder
care and transportation services
provider or comlietitively bidding those
services, leaving the "public exposed."
"It is therefore clear that ihii pro-
posal that the property be gifted to the
Council on Aging is illegal," Hallman
said. "An outcome
wherein taxpayers
could be required.,
without a citizen ref-
erendum, to pay a
private entity's mort-
gage is certainly not
consistent with the
spirit of the law."
Apparently antici- Hallman
parting an appeal
from the council's
lawyers, Hallnman cited a provision in
Fie kia law that allows the county to
give away public property, regardless
.lu l value, t'.. a i-I.,-P 4.1l organ-
ization. But he pointed to specific lan-
guage "requiring that conveyance of a
county's real property be in the best
interests of the county and to the high-
est and best bidder."
"In my legal opinion there is implic-
it in this statutory authorization a con-
dition that such a transfer be in the
interest, of the public. ... I am of the
opinion that it is impossible to find
such a transfer to be in the interest of
the public," Hallman said.
The council had been seeking the
deed to the 14th Street site of-h I for-
mer county hospital since last
September, whbn its leaders told the
commission they were '2 4 million
short of their, fundraising goal to build
a new senior center there.
On Dec. 17, COA board President
Fran Shea told the commission that if
the coiirnil defaulted on its proposed
30-year loan that the property and the
debt service would revert to the coun-
ty and its taxpayers.
"The deeding of the property will
enable us to solicit a conventional con-
struction loan to start construction,"
Shea told commissioners previously.

MILWAUKEE, Wis. -
There are many different per-
spectives on what America's
favorite pastime truly is. This
lime of year, watching foot-
ball lends to top the list. With

port organization, offers tips
to help keep nutrition on
track when cheering on your
favorite team.
Have a small snack
before you arrive at a party to
curb your appetite.
Overeating can be avoided if
you don't arrive hungry.
Start out with foods that
will leave you feeling fuller
.faster, like nuts. A handful of
almonds, containing about
160 calories, is a smart
choice.
Offer to bring a fruit
platter or veggie tray, broth-
based soup made with fiesh
or frozen vegetables, flour
tortillas sprinkled with
parmesan cheese and baked,
or sugar-free pudding to the
buffet. Then you'll have a
healthy option to snack on.
Go easy on anything
with a thick, creamy consis-


picks
tency like dips or casseroles.
Most often these foods are
high in calories and not very
filling.
Take a walk around the
buffet and consider your
choices before putting any-
thing on your plate. If you
choose to have a high-fat or
high-calorie item (wings,
pizza, or nachos), take only a
small amount and put it on
your plate last, after you've
filled up the space with
healthier options.
Consider guacamole!
Guacamole is high in the
"good" types of fat mono
and polyunsaturated.
Guacamole is also high in
beta carotene, fiber, folate
and potassium, making this a
relatively guilt-free option.
Limit alcohol. Not only
is it high in calories, alcohol
causes blood sugar to drop,
which leads to hunger. If you
do imbibe, consider light
beer and stagger alcoholic
beverages with non-alcoholic
ones.
Pick filling protein over
high-carb offerings, including
shrimp with cocktail sauce or
smoked salmon served with
cocktail rye.

WEDNESDAY. JANUARY 30,2013 NEWS News-Leader


BEACH Continued from IA
ager for SAISSA, acknowl-
edged that renourishment is
an "ongoing process," but dis-
missed Bowman's claims that
sea oats would stop beach ero-
sion.
"It's really based on a
need," said Moore. "There's
always somebody who does-
n't like it or thinks there's a
better way to do it, but there's
no substitute for beach renour-
ishment in Florida. The only
substitute is to allow a beach to
erode, allow properties to be
threatened."
Tilling the beach, done
annually to make nesting eas-
ier for endangered sea turtles,
prevents sea oats from flour-
ishing and stabilizing the
dunes naturally, Bowman says.
He says the plants, if left alone,
would curb erosion without
any help.
But renourishment propo-
nents say that's not the case.
'"There is a requirement inl
the project permits that we till
the beach every year. We do
that to loosen up the material
to make it amenable to sea tur-
tle nesting," said Al Browder,
an engineer with Olsen
Associates.
"I think (Bowman) believes
it's more beneficial to cover
the beach with vegetation than
beach renourishment, but
planting vegetation on the
beach really doesn't do much
to deter water-borne erosion,"
Moore said.
Martin says planting vege-
tation helps to fight wind ero-
sion, but sea oats are no match
for tidal currents.
"If it hadn't been for renoutr-
ishment, Dave (Bowman)
wouldn't have any beach
behind his property," he said.
"A lot of the stuff he's planted
has already gone into'the
ocean."
Bowman's pleas have got-
ten mixed responses from offi-
cials. The state Department of
Environmental Protectiop has-
n't helped.
'The Governor's Office got
the head of DEP and his assis-
tant out there (to see
Bowman's sea oats), and they
acted like the dumbest people


on the face of Ihis earthh" said
Bowman, adding that officials
tkld him any sea oats less than
3-feet-wide needed to be
removed.
"I think it's incredibly stu-
pid of the head of the DEP to
say, those sea oats are too
small, dig theri up."
Local officials have been
more receptive, Bowman says.
"He wants the tilling to
basically stop, because he says
it's not necessary," said Danny
Leeper, chairman of the coun-
ty commission, who visited
with Bowman on Thursday.
"When we don't till, you've got
this new growth that takes off
and nature does what it does
best and creates some new
dune lines."
"His point is, if we continue
to till it. then it's never going to
grow," he added.
Leeper said Bowman also
took issue with sheriff's office
vehicles patrolling the shore-
line and disturbing the sea
oats.
"His contention is, if we did-
n't till it for two years and if
we didn't allow beach driving
for two years, then these sea
oats would grow," said
Commissioner Steve Kelley,
whose district includes south-
ei'n Amelia Island. "From what
I gather in his sermon to me,
the only people driving up on
that area he's talking about are
the (engineers) out there
monitoring and then the
police."
Commissioner Barry
Holloway, who planned to
meet with Bowman on
Monday, said he suspected
Bowman was upset with police
driving on the beach, as he
had been in the past.
"Well, he's always been
after them about them going
up and down the beach," said


'There is a requirement in the project permits
that we till the beach every year. We do that
to loosen up the material to make it
amenable to sea turtle nesting.'
AL BROWDER, ENGINEER
.-..^^^-i; OLAJENAS404iLAF S ,i ,,,


Holloway. "... Mr. Bowman is
one of the highest (paying)
taxpayers on the island. He
cares very much about the
county, as long as it's on the
south end."
"That's his passion," said
Leeper. "It has been for 12
years."
SAISSA President Martin
said, "Dave feels like that's his
beach, he owns that beach ...
which, of course, is categori-
cally not true. The state owns
that beach."
On Feb. 5 2004, a local real-
tor and a cliei't called the
police after Bowman allegedly
threatened them with a rake as
they tried to drive past the
beach behind his property to
reach another lot, according
to a report filed with the
Nassau County Sheriff's
Office. Beach driving was legal
at that time, and the vehicle
was avoiding high tide by driv-
ing on Bowman's tilled beach.
Bowman denied he threat-
ened the pair, but Andrea
Washington of Lynn, Mass.,
the realtor's client, said she
fell threatened by Bowman.
"Fearing for our own safety,
we left the area," Washington
said then. "I don't understand
how an individual can inten-,
tionally plant sea grass on a
beach the width of his home
and extend it to the ocean, bor-
der the grass with stakes and
claim he is justified in his
actions and not be held
accountable. Are beachfront
homeowners on Amelia Island
above the law? I honestly do
not understand."
The state subsequently,
established a new route from
A1Aand the Nassau River to a
fishing spot at the south end of
the Amelia Island State
Recreation Area. Beach driv-
ing was then banned between
American Beach and the state
park past Bowman's home and
Amelia Island Plantation,
Bowman subsequently con-
tributed $450 to Leeper and
$200 to Kelley during their
respective 2008 campaigns for
county commission, and $300
each to the 2012 campaigns
for commissioners Edwards
and Boatright.

SAISSA maintains



south end beaches


GARRETT PELICAN
News Leader
It's been nearly two years since construction
crews poured roughly 2 million cubic yards of
sand onto a 3-mile stretch of shoreline on Amelia
Island's south end, the latest phase of an effort
aimed at curbing beach erosion.
The process, dubbed beach renourishment, is
a series of construction projects performed peri-
odically on beaches statewide to stabilize and
maintain shorelines and dune systems.
The South Amelia Island Shore Stabilization
Association Inc. (SAISSA) and its predecessors
have been maintaining the south end's beaches
since the early 1990's with the help of Olsen
Associates, 4 Jacksonville-based engineering firm,
said SAISSA president Bob Martin.
"Basically the purpose is to protect, promote,
preserve and enhance the beaches of the south
end of Amelia Island," Bill Moore, director of
planning and development for the Omni Amelia
Island Plantation and project manager for SAIS-
SA, said.
Every day, beaches gradually wash away
through a natural process called equilibrationn."
In response, SAISSA and its counterparts dredge
up millions of yards of sand to replace those loss-
es. Generally, said Moore, renourishment is need-
ed every eight to nine years.
Specifically, engineers are after coarser sands
with higher shell content because it tends to last
longer and stabilize the beach more.
"The higher shell content that you have in
the sand, the more stable the beach is. The finer
the sand is, the more it will wash away or erode
quickly," said Moore, who noted coarser sand is
harder to come by. "The longer you keep the
material there, the less renourishment you have
to do, the less money you spend."
Renourishment also demands beach moni-
toring, performed annually by Olsen at a rough
cost of $300,000, and tilling, performed annually,
to help sea turtles nest.
"There is a requirement in the project permits


Every day, beaches gradually

process. In response, millions of
yards of sand are dredged to
replace those losses. That has
cost SAISSA more than
$20 million since 1994.

that we till the beach every year. We do that to
loosen up the material to make it amenable to sea
turtle nesting," said Al Crowder, an engineer for
Olsen Associates.
The process is not without other costs. In
1994, renourishment cost about $7 million. An
additional phases 2002 cost roughly $3 million.
Most recently, SAISSA spent nearly $9.5 million
to renourish the beach in 2011. "It was a little high-
er than it cost in previous years. The main reason
was, fuel costs had gone up a lot," said Moore.
The project is funded through SAISSA, a
Municipal Services Benefit Unit (MSBU), or a
special taxing district that charges south end
residents and property owners. It has cost SAIS-
SA more than $20 million since the association's
founding in 1994. But it's a trade property own-
ers should bd happy to make, Moore said.
"When we get in and start building a lot of
buildings on the ocean, you have a lot of value
there," he said. "If the land under the buildings
washes out, then the buildings fall down, some-
thing you want to avoid."
"Since the early 1990s, SAISSA or its fore-
runner has stepped in to manage the erosion
problem on the south end of the island to protect
the upland infrastructure, to protect the beach
itself," said Al Browder, an engineer for Olsen
Associates of Jacksonville. "Something had to
be done or an enormous amount of acreage
wouild've been lost".

BUSINESS


Going'

Many executives tell me
their first impressions are
always the best. First impres-
sions are important because if
you make a bad first impres-
sion, you may not get a sec-
ond chance. However, my
record regarding first impres-
sions is quite different.
Individuals and assignments I
thought were going to be ter-
rific disappointed, and others
I had questions about turned
out to be great.
One case of a mistaken
first impression occurred dur-
ing a labor negotiation. Jack
Anton, soon after he pur-
chased Ghirardelli Chocolate,
asked me to help with the
upcoming labor negotiation,
because the Bakery,
Confectionary and Tobacco
(BC&T) Business Agent
responsible for his facility was
reported by his vice president
of human resources to be
incompetent. Through BC&T
headquarters I learned that
Charlie Crocker was the
regional VP covering Los
Angeles and San Francisco. I
called him and after a very
unsatisfactory discussion he
finally agreed that if I flew to
LA he would let me buy him
dinner. Discouraged, I called
Jack with my news, but he
still wanted me to make the
trip.
So I reluctantly flew to LA
to meet Charlie at'a local tav-


fMernabsina 8traifi ibblet irfBot


with first impressions


COACH'S
CORNER

Pines
,I


ern. When I
arrived, I
asked the
bartender if
he knew
Charlie. He
pointed to a
big, scruffy,
poorly
dressed guy
sitting on a
stool in the
far corner of
the bar. I
introduced
myself and
we started


to chain. He was in no hurry
and over a number beers and
a hamburger we discussed
the labor scene. I soon real-
ized that scruffy Charlie knew
a lot more about Ghirardelli's
labor situation than either
Jack or the VP of HR.
Suddenly he threw out a
question that surprised me.
"OK," he asked, "how much
do you pay for retiree health
insurance?" "$377,000 last
year," I answered. "Great," he
replied, "then do you or Mr.
Anton know how many
retirees that amount covers?"
I had no idea and suspected
neither did Jack. "Well, my
new friend," he retorted, "the
plan covers eight retirees and
two will probably die this
year, which means you will be
paying about $60,000 per
retiree next year. If we trans-


ferrqd to the AARP plan you
could probably save at least
$300,000 annually, which is
slightly more than dinner
tonight." It sure was, and
when Charlie smoothly han-
dled his side of the negotia-
tion, I was quite impressed
and glad Jack had talked me
into flying to LA.
The next case involved a
good client, Mike Mardy, the
COO of Tumi and a member
of the board of directors of
Green Mountain Coffee
Roasters, located in Vermont.
He tells me Green Mountain
has a big problem as the
founder and the new CEO are
at odds and the board has
decided the solution is an
executive coach. "I recom-
mended you," he reports.
"Great" I tell Mike, "but I am
retired on sunny Amelia
Island. I play golf and I don't
ski. Vermont is on my no-fly
list." "Oh, come on. You
can at least talk to them, and
not embarrass me," he
whines.
So I agree to go through
the interview process that
concludes with me talking by
phone to the founder, Bob
Stiller. Bob suggests we meet
in New York to discuss the
assignment. So I fly to New
York. Unfortunately, Bob
doesn't show and while I am
understandably pissed, I feel I
am off the hook. My pal Mike
though advises, "Bob loved
the conversation but just was-
n't ready to meet. He does
that. He's ready now, and you
won't be sorry." I am past
sorry, but I am also intrigued.
So Bob'and I finally meet. A


brilliant entrepreneur, Bob
has a vision and great
instincts around what the cus-
tomer wants. He also created
one of the great business suc-
cess stories of the early 21st
century. Unlike Bob, the CEO
he is driven by'logic, rather
than emotion, and managing
everything and everybody.
The CEO also loves talking
more than listening, which
doesn't work well with Bob.
However, the CEO wants to
succeed and acts on my sug-
gestions, immediately improv-
ing the relationship. The
assignment turns out to be
an unbelievably rewarding
experience; so I am thankful I
didn't go with my first impres-
sion.
So why are first impres-
sions often off base? My
sense is it has to do with our
biases that indicate that peo-
ple who possess certain char-
acteristics, credentials and
mannerisms, bring specific
criteria to the table. My expe-
rience is that these biases are
many times wrong.
Therefore, before making my
final decisions, I try to learn a
lot more about the other party
and the situation."

Compelling story


for library funds


I asked the bartender ifhe knew
Charlie. He pointed to a big, scruffy,
poorly dressed guy sitting on a stool
in the far corner of the bar.


Like each page in the
thousands of books in the
Fernandina Beach Public
Library, there are two dis-
tinct sides.
The front and the back.
Each separate and unique.
Likewise, the debate over
whether and how to renovate
the existing library has
evolved into two opposite
viewpoints. And both sides
have been rather unwilling
to change their stances, as if
written in permanent ink.
The testy debate will like-
ly come to a conclusion
before the Fernandina
Beach City Commission on
Feb. 5. Commissioners
will be deciding whether to
proceed with a renovation of
the library and at what
cost.
The debate is not over
the need to improve the
existing library; there clearly
are deficiencies that must be
addressed. However, the tim-
ing and the.costs are divi-
sive, thorny issues.
Meanwhile, library sup-
porters feel they have a legit-
imate case. A leaky roof, cor-
roded electrical wiring,
insufficient heating and cool-
ing, and cramped quarters
all lend credence to their
cause.
In one corner of the
library, a plastic bucket
catches water from a leak in
the ceiling. A handwritten
sign warns, "Do not remove
bucket," or else books may
get wet.
An estimate for necessary
repairs to the library is for
$591,000. Within the funding
arrangement for a complete
renovation, the city would
contribute $600,000, match-
ing the county (the library
system is operated by the
county; the existing building
belongs to the city).
Another $400,000 is to
come from private donors as
coordinated by the Friends
of the Library group. This
brings the total construction.

Inventory continues to
shrink, coming in at 7,558
homes in December 2012, a
33.5 percent drop from the
year before.
Months'supply of homes
for sale plunged to just 4.6
months in December, down
from December 2011's eight
months.
Lender-mediated sales
made up 43 percent of the
total sales in December.
There were 699 lender-medi-
ated sales and 886 traditional
sales.
NEFAR President Carol
Zingone said "Northeast
Florida's inventory of proper-
ties for sale is now so low that
it is not at all uncommon for
sellers to receive offers from
multiple competing buyers.
This competition is driving up
sales prices, with 17.4 percent
of property sales in December
being for more than the asking
price."

MARKET controversy
PLACE and the
political fall-
out of the
Steve Nicklas proposed
"Forward
Fernandina" projects are
proof of this.
Library supporters do not
feel their project is frivolous,
but necessary to continue
their expanded operations.
Most agree that something
must be done. The current
library (built in 1978) is now
unsuitable for the demand.
Ironically, more government
services (passports, e-gov-
ernment operations, food
stamps and unemployment
claims, etc.) are being hand-
ed off to the public library
system.
While the Internet has
made some aspects of a pub-
lic library almost obsolete,
there are still critical servic-
es provided by a library that
many people donot realize.
In fact, there are five library
locations within the county
and 52,000 registered library
cards. And more people use
a library during tough eco-
nomic times.
If the funds are released
by the city and county and
the Friends of the Library
delivers its portion the ren-
ovations are planned in phas-
es so as to preserve daily
operations. Expanding the
library into the parking lot
on the side of the building
also seems to make the most
sense.
Ifofficials and the public
read up on the case for a
revamped library, they will
find a compelling story.
M ybqit's been .nfi. tLnal'--

other unnecessary, unpopu-

own merits. And now
seems deserving of a new

COA Continued flom IA
Under their current arrange-
ment, the county has agreed to
lease the property to C( )A for 99
years at a cost of $1 each year.
The estimated value of the 2.5-
acre property, according to the
Nassau County Property
Appraiser's website, is nearly
$450.000o.
The council has leased its
current site, located at 1367
South 18th St., from Baptist
Medical Center Nassau, but
plans to move out as the hospi-
tal moves forward with plans to
tear down the building and
expand on-site parking.
In addition to plans for a new
senior center, the council oper-
ates transportation services at
the 14th Street site. A new trans-
portation center to manage the
center's public transportation
program opened on the 14th
Street property last year. The
Council on Aging offers the
county's only public transit pro-
gram, providing daily trips on
vans and buses on scheduled
routes along with special routes
for seniors and disabled resi-
dents.
The council is not only strug-
gling to raise funds for a new
buikling, but is having difficul-
ty funding its current programs.
It has recently laid off employ-
ees and trimmed services;to
balance its budget.
The council operates two
senior centers, in Fernandina
Beach and Hilliard, with adult
daycare services. It opened in
1974 and is part of a national
network of agencies, with fund-
ing sources including federal,
state and local grants plus pri-
Vate donations.

AIRPORT
Continued from 1A
the north side development was
not acceptable," Echard wrote
in his complaint. "The north air-
port parcel is a designated aero-
nautical development area and
contains a basic infrastructure...
nonetheless, the city stated they
would direct all future develop-
ment to the currently undevel-
oped east side of the airport."
According to Echard's let-
ter, the city "hoped that by elim-
inating the prime site location,
(8 Flags) would simply drop
their plans to develop a new
FBO."
"The city's refusal to lease
the 1,-I ,,,I, -'Pd.. ,, :,i ran ,ranew
FBO not 6frly favorstl, ti, --.irig
FBO with the prime location,"
Echard told the FAA, "but also
protects the.existing FBO from
having to compete directly with
a new service provider."
"As a business owner and
Fernandina Beach resident, this
is not how I choose to conduct
business," noted Echard. 'The
city's flagrant discrimination
against me, and preferential
treatment toward the existing.
FBO (McGill Aviation), leave
me with no other choice."
Echard also claimed that 8
Flags' financial proposal for the
FBO was based on a current
market lease rate of 15 cents
per square foot, but that there
are "concerns over equitabili-
ty" because the city's lease
agreement with McGill Aviation
is at 2 cents per square foot,
Echard also complained that
McGill Aviation "enjoys the eco-
nomic benefit of not having to
provide the initial capital
expense of fuel tanks and is
allowed to pay fuel flowage fees
(to the city) after its own retail
sales are made."
'There'is a surprising lack of
transparency 'between fuel deliv-
ered and fuel sold that could
potentially prove detrimental to
the city," Echard wrote.
He also claimed the city
must comply with federal codes
in order to be assured of grants
from the'federal government,
but is not doing so because of
discrimination and inequity, in
fees.
In his complaint Echard has
asked the FAA to "find the city
in violation of its FAA Grant
Assurances and exercise all
appropriate remedies to bring
the city into compliance, includ-
ing but not limited to withhold-
ing any additional airport grant
in aid funds pending the city's
compliance.:'
i Last year the city lost a law-
suit against McGill Aviation
regarding an airport land lease


dispute, which ended up costing
the city $2 million in damages
and attorney fees. McGill has
been the airport's fixed-base
operator since 1998 and mainly
handles fuel sales and light
ground support. Its lease is set
to expire on March 31, 2018.

Boys & Girls benefit nearly a sellout


ALAN DONALDSON
For the News Leader

The upcoming Gala Dinner and Concert for sup-
port of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Nassau County
looks like it will be the most successful in the six-year
history of this benefit event.
Reservations are approaching the limit of capaci-
ty at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. Folks planning
to attend on Saturday, Feb. 9 at 6 p.m. would be well
advised to reserve right now before the event sells out.
Ruben Studdard, well-known R&B, pop and gospel
singer, will be a much-anticipated performer at the
concert, backed by the quartet of artists heard on
many of his recordings. He will also share some of his
youthful experiences as a member of a Boys & Girls
Club back in Birmingham, Ala., where he grew up.
A popular attraction at the benefit is the silent
auction. It features exciting bidding opportunities
for vacations like a week's stay in a luxury home in
Cashiers, N.C., or three nights at The Cosmopolitan
in Las Vegas or four nights at the Fairmont-Lake
Louise in-Alberta, Canada among 24 such offerings.

LIFELONG LEARNING

Silent auction bidding may be done
by testing on a cellphone during the
event and in the week prior.

If bidders are more stay-at-home, McGill Aviation
will fly them on a tour over Amelia Island, White Oak
Plantation will host four on a tour of their local wildlife
preserve or they may attend a Jacksonville Jaguars
game in club seats and take home an autographed
football. At last count, there were 70 enticing prizes.
on the list to bid both for enjoyment and to help the
Boys & Girls Clubs.
And this year, silent auction bidding becomes
both easier and more available. Through use of a
cell phone, bidding will be done by texting during the
event and in the week prior. Qtego Auction
Technology makes possible completely paper-free
bidding wherever you may be and fast checkout of
successful bidders on the evening of the benefit. A

IT'S A NEW YEAR.. AND ONE OF YOUR

RESOLUTIONS MAY BE TO

BUY OR SELL YOUR HOME IN 2013

According to experts, in the coming spring, banks are expected to flood
the market with short sales & foreclosures that they've been holding back
until they dispose of the current inventory.

So, if you are considering selling, NOW is the time to move before the
increased inventory hits the market. Thinking of buying? NOW is the
time to move because you want to take advantage of the continuing low
interest rates and current bargains.

Before making this important decision, however, you owe it to yourself to
get the facts about PALM Ill REALTY, INC. and set up an appointment for
your free consultation with one of our experts.

Palm III closed over 767 transactions in the past 3 years! Why? Because
we are good at what we do and we get results using tomorrow's
solutions' for today's problems.

We are:
*EXPERIENCED -

& foreclosures) averaged 87 days from contract to closing.

WEDNESDAY. JANUARY 30.2013 OPINION News-Leader


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Gun expertise
I believe that compared to
most of the world I could be
considered somewhat of a
firearms expert. I am a graduate
of two separate law enforcement
academies, I have served as a
police officer, I am the founder
of Nassau County's only indoor
firearms training facility and I
have facilitated the responsible
training of literally hundreds of
local residents.
I will set the tone of this arti-
cle with two quotes from one of
the most important people in
American history. "Tlhe
strongest reason for the people
to retain the right to keep and
bear arms is, as a last resort, to
protect themselves against
tyranny in government." And,
"All tyranny needs to gain a
foothold is for people of good
conscience to remain silent."
These quotes are from the very
man who most consider the pri-
mary author of our Constitution,
Thomas Jefferson. I am amazed
by how quickly (historically
speaking) people can forget
how and why the United States
of America was founded. Our
founding fathers wished to cre-
ate a land of freedom and oppor-
tunity for all. A land in which
we were governed by the peo-


pie and for-the people. And a
land that "When governments
fear the people, there is liberty.
When the people fear the gov-
ernment, there is tyranny."
(Thomas Jefferson)
With all that being said, I
must address the "opinions"
that I have read lately as they
pertain to gun control and one's
right to own a particular
firearm:
Most people who speak out
against "assault rifles" really
have no idea of what they are
speaking. These rifles are gen-
erally manufactured in the .223
round, which is a much less
lethal round than that of your
grandfather's hunting rifle or
shotgun. These guns have been
made scary and evil by the lib-
eral media who do not under-
stand them. They see soldiers
'and law enforcement carrying
similar looking weapons
because they are mass pro-
duced due to the low produc-
tion costs of the weapon as well
as the ammunition for the
weapon. If you were to strip it
down from all of its evil look-
.ing plastic pieces you would
merely have a muscled up .22-
caliber rifle, much like the one
that most southerners grew up
shooting squirrels and rabbits
with. I assure you that in the


grand scale of firearms these
"assault rifles" are one of the
least powerful weapons avail-
able. And to set the record
straight, an "assault rifle" is not
what has been being used in
theses random acts of violence
that our media keeps exploit-
ing. By definition, an "assault
rifle" is one that has selectable
firing options. Meaning they
shoot three rounds consecu-
tively with one pull of.the'trigger
or they operate in "full auto"
mode with one pull of the trig-
ger. Once again, these firearms
get coined with the name
"assault" in order to influence an
opinion.
Then there are those who
state that today is a different
time than when the Constitution
was written. I have heard the
left argue that when the Second
Amendment was adopted we
only had muzzleloaders and sin-
gle-shot weapons. I have even
heard them babbling that our
forefathers never intended for
us to have "assault" weapons.
All of this rhetoric and unin-
formed misguided chatter has
only confirmed what I already
knew. If you are one of these
people then you know nothing
about our history, and you
haven't a clue as to why the
Constitution was written. You


are more dangerous than the
self-serving clowns in
Washington because you con-
tinually empower them. The
Second Amendment was writ-
ten to protect us from a tyran-
nical government. It was written
in the spirit of being able to out
power a government in the
event that they forgot where
they had received their power
from to begin with. And it was
written so that every law abid-
ing citizen could live free from
fear of their government as well
as others who wished to do
them harm.
Had our forefathers known
.that the government would
have "assault" weapons they
would have warned us to have
grenade launchers. Had they
known that the government
would possess tanks they would
have warned us- to build
artillery shells powerful enough
to stop tanks. The intent always
has been and always will be that
"We the People" should always
be able to stand our ground
against the government. Our
forefathers were so much more
intelligent than what we are
dealing with today and we con-
tinually ignore their warnings.
We have become a society that
is the opposite of what they
fought for and we have quite
possibly reached a point of no
return.
However, what bothers me
the mpost is the one-sided liber-
al statistical data that continues
to cycle through the media. If
you think that enacting laws that
by definition only law abiding
citizens will follow then think
about this. Newtown,
Connecticut, Virginia Tech and
Columbine were three of the
biggest tragedies that our nation
has ever faced and yet most peo-
ple still fail to recognize that all
of these locations are "gun free"
zones. Heck, Columbine hap-
pened during the Clinton
"assault rifle" ban. Seems to me
that these laws only create
opportunities for an opportunist.
Chicago, Washington, D.C., and
New York are three of the hard-
est cities to own firearms in.
Check their crime statistics.


And finally, out of the hundreds
of millions of guns that are
believed to be in America a very
small fraction of them are used
in crimes. And for the ones that
are used in crimes, approxi-
mately 90 percent of the time
they are used by felons who
have no legal right to possess
them in the first place. The most
insulting part about this whole
scenario is that the same people
who are screaming to "ban the
guns" are the same ones who
are screaming that we should
keep rehabilitating and releas-
ing these felons that are respon-
sible for most of the crimes
being committed with guns.
What I would encourage
most people to do, prior to try-
ing to articulate a stance, is to
become educated and do their
own research. Obviously I am
an advocate of gun ownership
and I believe in the premise that
the constitution affords us the
right to own the weapons that
our current administration wish-
es to take from us. However, in
the spirit of seeing both sides I
have conducted my own inves-
tigation of statistical data as it
relates to firearms, deaths and
a few other interesting cate-
gories. Also, I will cite my
sources so that anyone can ver-
ify this data and it should be
noted that I used data from
sources that do not make policy
nor do they have any lobbyist on
their payroll. Matter of fact, this
is the data that is so readily avail-
able to the government that it
baffles me as to why they refuse
to accept it.
In the past 20 years (1992
through 2011) the murder rate
has dropped from 9.3 per
100,000 to 4.7 per 100,000
(fbi.org). Yes, it has dropped in
half. In 2011, there were 323
murders committed with rifles
while 496 people were killed
,with hammers and clubs
(fbi.org). Unbelievably, you are
50 percent more likely to be
killed with a hammer than a
rifle. Where are all the anti-ham-
mer liberals? According to
Wikipedia.com there are 255.4
million cars in the United States
and last year there were 41,059
automobile fatalities. While
according to The Brady
Campaign.org (one of the most
prolific anti-gun groups in the
nation), 'The U.S. has an esti-
mated 283 million guns in civil-
ian hands" with a population of
..just';over S:31 million:.'That' '
means that your chance' of
being killed in an automobile
crash is three and a half times


more likely than being killed by
a gun. And before anyone wants
to refer to an automobile fatali-
ty as an accident, think again.
Most states no longer refer to
them as accidents because
there is almost always an action
that could have been taken to
avoid the results that occurred.
You see, the vehicle, much like
the gun, is just a tool of the
event. And if we are going to
pick and choose the tools that
cause death, shouldn't it be the
ones that cause the most?
lastly, the high-capacity maga-
zines issue. My first argument
against "why do they need
them" is because it is my right
as a citizen. Just like it is your
right to buy a car or motorcycle
that can reach speeds of 150-
200 mph even though the speed
limit is 70, I possess the same
right, to buy a magazine that
holds 30, 40 or even 100 rounds.
Furthermore, according to the
New York Times, in 2005 the
New York City Police Depart-
ment hit their target 17.4 per-
cent of the time while engaged
in life-threatening situations.
Now, if a highly trained police
officer only hits their target 17.4
percent of the time while under
duress, how often do you think
a civilian will hit their mark? I
don't know about you, but I sure
would like to have that 30-round
magazine when my house gets
broke into and my children are
in their beds innocently sleep-
ing.
So, with all of that in mind,
maybe the Obama administra-
tion is right and I am wrong.
Maybe we should ban all scary
looking overhyped guns and
high-capacity magazines from
the law-abiding citizens and
maybe we should let the crimi-
nals get more powerful and
wealthier. I mean, after all, just
like Prohibition and the war on
drugs, somebody is going to
make a lot of money selling
these items to the people who
do not care about the law.
As for me, I refuse to recog-
nize any law that violates my
inalienable God-given right to
be able to protect myself, my
family and my neighbors.
Neither this administration nor
any before it or after it will
supersede the United States

Time for an


updated library

Friends of the Library President Bill
Flynn and Wilma Allen visited with me last
week to discuss the Fernandina Beach
Library's renovation and expansion project.
Naturally, they are very excited and pas-
sionate about the possibilities of the new
arld updated library.
The topic has been kicked around for
quite some time now and it would appear
the planets are aligning for movement in a
positive direction depending on upcoming
action by the Fernandina Beach City
Commission.
It's an interesting proj-
ect involving Nassau
County, Fernandina Beach
and the community. The
city owns the property and
building and the county
-. financially supports the
libraries' annual opera-
tions.
For once'I feel confi-
MY VIEW dent our elected officials
can now work together
successfully on a common
Foy Maloy, project for the betterment
of our community.
Publisher There is no doubt the
existing library, built in 1978, has served us
well over the past 34 years, but it's small, .
outdated and in a dire strait of disrepair it
can no longer meet the needs of our com-
munity.
It is a valuable asset to our downtown
historic business district attracting resi-
dents and visitors alike estimates of 350 to
400 visitors daily have been tossed around.
VRL Architects of Jacksonville was
awarded the contract by the city last July
and their architectural and engineering
designs for the expansion and renovation
have been submitted for approval. VRL
appears to be qualified in.the planning and
design of libraries, schools and office com-
plexes they've been in business for over
30 years and have been involved in two
recent library project's in Northeast Florida.
The total budget for the project, includ-
ing repairs, renovation, construction and
furnishings, is estimated at $2.4 million -
$600,000 from Fernandina Beach, $600,000
from Nassau' County and $1.2 million
($400,000 for construction and $800,000 for
furnishings) from the Friends of the
Lil4ary. From what I understand the
"Friends" already have begun their capital
campaign and are well on their way.
VRL presented its plans for the new
16,300-square-foot library at a meeting of
the Historic District Council on Nov. 15 with
an estimate of $1.99 million for the project -
$389,000 over budget. I have been told VRL
has now reworked the plans back down to
the budgeted $1.6 million.
, It's being said if Fernandina Beach
rescinds it financial support an estimated
$520,000 for repairs and architectural fees
will still have to be paid by the city.
I still have questions, as do others, about
this project, but I know suitable solutions
and answers can be found if we all work
together. I encourage the Fernandina City
Commission to continue their support of
this project with their financial commitment
of $600,000 and let's get this very important
and worthwhile community project going -
it's time!

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


GratitudeAmerica
I am writing you today to
announce to our community mem-
bers who are interested in actively
supporting local veterans, their fam-
ilies and the families of the fallen
that GratitudeAmerica Nassau
County is holding a meeting from
5:30 p.m. until 7 p.m. today, Jan. 30,
at. the Pernandina Police Depart-
ment's Community Room (1525
Lime St.).
We will be discussing our next
steps on our plans to develop a
strong prototype for a Gratitude-
America community organization
right here in Nassau County. This
meeting will include a discussion of
how we can take first steps to poten-
tially hold a kickoff fundraising event
such as awalk-a-thon/5K in fall 2013
in coordination with Easter Seals to
raise funds to pay the salary for a
passionate and qualified veteran to
run GratitudeAmerica's operations
starting in 2014. We also will be dis-
cussing a reintegration retreat for
Iraq and Afghanistan veterans we
are coordinating this summer at
Marineland. Knowing how passion-
ate many of you are about support-
ing veterans and their families in
our area, we welcome all ideas relat-
ed to fundraising and program devel-
opment as well. Through our out-

For shame
What crime did we commit to
suffer the loss of those magnificent
oaks by the Flash Foods store
("Trees gone," Jan. 23)? We are
guilty of allowing our local and coun-
ty officials to once again ignore envi-
ronmental and esthetic issues, so
important to so many of us. To my
knowledge we don't have a tree ordi-
nance to protect us. And the time is
long overdue for one. As I recall at
least one well-considered tree ordi-
nance a few years ago was proposed
by Mike Boyle, then a Nassau com-
missioner. I believe it died, starved
from lack of support from the com-
mission. Rather than reinvent the
wheel couldn't'this proposal be
brought forth now for review?
We really need to demand action,
a far more intense and broader
effort than has been done here. The
indifference of local and county offi-
cials toward the public viewpoint on
issues of our environment and its
esthetics is staggering and shame-
ful. Remember the outrage of so
many people a few years ago when
huge swaths of trees along AIA and
fronting Marsh Lakes were to be'
cut and removed? How appalling it
was to see, against great public oppo-
sition, acres cleared to provide room
for the stillborn malls and condos
there now. Oaks and trees of great,
age and beauty lost and gone forev-
er for no reason. A legacy of great
shame for that commission, a dese-
cration for the gateway to Amelia
Island.
Nothing has changed since then
except more destruction of nature's
great works of art It is disgusting.
Ralph W. Allen
Fernandina Beach
* *
The loss of the great heritage
oaks at Amelia City to make room
for a bigger commercial establish-
ment can be directly blamed on Tom
Ford, Nassau's longtime Planning'
Board chairman. Twice in the past
10 years Ford has stopped proposed
tree protection laws from going into
effect.
Some six years ago a committee
comprised of Gounty Planning
Director Walter Fufidio, Planning
Board member Wynn Fendig and
Commissioner Mike Boyle spent
months working on broad revisions
to Nassau's land development codes.
Included was a comprehensive tree
protection law. Most Florida coun-
ties have such laws and the pro-
posed ordinance was based on an
effective one from Flagler County
where Fufidio had once been plan-
ning director.
Had that law been passed by the
county commission, most if not all of
the grand oaks at Amelia City would
still be gracing that corner ("Trees
gone," Jan. 23). But Tom Ford saw.
to it that the law was not passed.
His planning board recommended
the tree section of the land devel-
opment code not be approved and at
.the county commission hearing
Ford put on a full-court-press to per-
suade the commissioners to reject it.
He had more than a dozen people -


primarily' from West Nassau com-
munities (where Ford lives) speak
in objection.
Ford told the commission that a
heritage oak was worth $1,000 in
lumber to the tree owner and that
the proposed law would be confis-
cating the owner's assets. He
likened owning heritage oaks and
other hardwoods to a retirement
account. He rejected the concept
that heritage oaks and magnolias
and other hardwoods were com-
munity assets because of the beau-
ty they give to a community.
The commission agreed with


ADAM ZYGLIS/THE BUFFALO NEWS


Ford in a 4-1 vote. Even District 1
(Fernandina) commissioner Jim B.
Higginbotham voted with the West
Side commissioners.
Opposition to tree protection was
nothing new for Ford. In 2002-03
the commission considered what
was called the "A1A Overlay
District," a set of rules to govern
development along A1A.
The rules included maintaining a
buffer of trees between the high-
way and commercial development.
Ford led the charge against these
rules and they were ripped out of the
planning document. Champions of
the tree, protection concept were
Commissioners Vickie Samus and
Ansley Acree, but they were out-'
voted byFord's buddies on the com-
missioh. As a result AIA looks as
barren as it does.
Any effort to preserve what's left,
of the grand trees of Nassau will
have to get past Tom Ford, the coun-
ty's number-one enemy of trees.
Robert M. Weintraub
Marsh Lakes

I hope people will remember that
beautiful corner in Amelia City that
had a nice little convenience store
surrounded by beautiful century-
old oaks (30 of them). It is all gone.
-All 30 trees. The store will be
replaced by a new one. Unfortunate-
ly there is no way to replace the
beauty that once surrounded their it-
tie store. Our county officials should
be "tarred and feathered" for allow-
ing this to happen.
I Tree clearing was allowed under
exceptions by the county. What were
they thinking? What was the devel-
oper of Flash Foods thinking?
Where were our county commis-
sioners? Where was our county plan-
ning commission? All of them let
this happen. I am sure our elected
and appointed officials care about
our county. Why else would they
run for office? However, they have
"no clue" about the beauty of cen-
tury-old trees draped with Spanish
moss and the value that they bring
to our county. More than the esti-
mated taxes gained from this devel-
opment.
Fernandina woke up when the
Keystone Hotel was torn down in
the 1970s. It was the social center for
the town. Its demise was the catalyst
that created the preservation groups
that now protect Fernandina from
future losses. Kate Bailey, who lived
in that beautiful mansioniat 28 South
Seventh St., knew the value of our
live oak trees. In the early 1900s,
she sat on her'side porch with a
shotgun and dared road workers to
remove a large oak in the center of
Ash Street. I assume that gun was
loaded and cocked. That tree
remains today. Maybe we need Kate
Baileys.
Did the developer really need
.every inch of land that was cleared
for this project? Did Harris Teeter
really need a new access road to
this corner? They already have two
access roads. I will frequently stop
at the new store and gas station but
,only to tell them why I am no longer
a customer.
Sam Boyd

* 0o
We are all aware of what hap-
pened at the Flash Foods location
next to Harris Teeter. The company
followed all the regulations and took
advantage of every loophole.
What does this mean to us as
homeowners on Amelia Island? It
is very simple, if this is to be the
future for the island, then we might
as well say goodbye to the unique-
ness of this special area and lower
our sights for our quality of life and,
to be blunt house values when
we decide to sell.
Why can't our county commis-
sioners, chamber of commerce,
Nassau Economic Development
Board, O.mni resort, The Ritz-
Carlton and other important enti-
ties such as Summer Beach
Community Association and Amelia
Island Community Association real-
ize that there must be a balance
between savingwhat is unique about
Amelia Island and the needs for
development?

* *
Joni Mitchell wrote a song a few
* years ago, "Don't it always seem to
go, that you don't know what you've
got till it's gone? They paved para-
dise and put up a parking lot."
But as Amelia Island residents,
we did know "what we got." We had
almost 2 acres of 200-year-old live
oak trees canopying the corner
where the Flash Foods store once
stood! It was a corner to admire the
magnificence of God's creation in
those 31-plus mighty oaks which
made me proud that I lived nearby.
These "ol' guys" were our friends.
They welcomed all passersby in
their travels on the island with their
outstretched branches and offered
comfort and shade to all who fre-
quented the store and fruit stand.
In what took over 200 years to
develop and grow into such beauti-
ful and majestic oaks was destroyed
in a matter of hours. Shame on you
who are responsible!.Where and
when does such senseless killing
and destruction of our ol' friends
end? Plain common sense should
tell you (County Planning Director/
County Growth Management
Office/Planning & Zoning/County
Commissioners) that these mighty
oaks that you approved to be cut
down are irreplaceable. Gone for-
ever! Shame on you for granting Mr.
Jones and Mr. Walker of the Jones
Co. in Wavy .s-o, Ga.. Zu.ini ,:xcep-
tions;Aind in retu n tor what 1"'heit
good faith promise to preserve
"some" of the trees. Well, take a
good look! And shame on you, Mr.
Jones and Mr. Walker, for your cal-
lous disregard and gross insensi-
tivity for the general welfare of our
island. Oh sure, you ay you did
nothing illegal (thanks to a flaw in.
the system which we will soon
address) but you certainly did some-
thing many of us consider immoral.
Contrary to Walker's statement
that "there was no reasonable way to
turn back from the plans that were
already in place," I beg to differ. You
always have options. You could have
razed the Flash Foods store and
built an aesthetically pleasing "island
market".complimenting those grand-
daddy oaks while adding to the
charm of our island and at far less
expense! Instead your greed got in
the way like those mean bulldozers
with their iron jaws and circular
saws that got in the way of our ol'
friends. They didn't stand a chance:
Neither do we with a company like
yours and a flawed governmental
system. With all of your numerous
stores throughout Georgia and
Florida (six in Nassau County) what
real benefit will you gain from your
actions at this once scenic location'
at our Amelia City roundabout? A
. few more gas pumps and some cold
subs?
I urge' our elected county offi-
cials to seriously consider amending
this tree ordinance and removing
such "zoning exceptions" not only
for the protection of our ol' friends
but for the salvation of Amelia Island.
For you may not know what you've
got 'til it's gone.,

Trees have no voice
How about the truth for once?
In the Jan. 16 News-Leader was
the following:
"City officials agreed last fall to
undertake a tree mitigation project
to address obstruction issues cre-
ated by trees."
Of course city officials would like
us to believe the trees just grew up
and have' become a problem. They
seem to be hiding the fact that on
June 3, 2010, the city created the
obstruction issues when they initi-
ated the publication of two brand
new procedures at the Fernandina
Airport called the RNAV (GPS)
RWY 13 and RNAV (GPS) RWY 22
Non-Precision Approaches to the
airport.
"The runways are being upgrad-
ed to accommodate business-class
jets bringing corporate customers
to south-end resorts." (News-Leader,
Aug 25, 2011). "The airport plan
would expand that eventually to
allow them on five of the six run-
way ends."


A non-precision instrument
approach, also called a "dive and
drive," allows pilots to get lower ear-
lier and search for the runway under
less airport surface visibility (3/4
of a mile) than required under
Visual Flight Rules (3 miles).
However, the creation of this non-
precision instrument approach also
lowered the allowable elevation of
objects. So prior to the city's action
* the trees were not an "obstruction."
Their actions alone created this
problem.
When the city initiated these dive
and drive approaches they drasti-
cally lowered the obstacle slop e for
the runways. These new non-preci-
sion approaches included regula-
tions that call for a 34:1 foot slope (3
percent) towards and from the run-
way ends. *
Absent these new non-precision
instrument approaches, initiated by
the city, the runway was deemed a
Visual Runway and the regula-
tions call for only a 20:1 slope (5
percent).
In addition the dive and drives
34:1 foot slope must also extend
10,000 feet outward, capturing even
more .trees, when compared to the
5,000 foot outward extension of the
20-1 slope required for Visual
Runways.
So the truth is the trees did not
suddenly create this problem. The
city ci, ated the obstacles when
they itriiiatl-d 11h. n,:w RNAV (GPS)
RWY 13 and RNAV (GPS) RWY 22
non precision instrument approach-
es with the FAA. They are not done
either. They will have to cut more
trees when they quietly initiate more
non-precision instrument approach-
es to the other runways.
Of course the clearcutting of the
golf course and the propane fields
now look terrible and will increase
noise. Citizens will experience
much more noise because the pur-
pose of the new procedures is to
allow planes to get much lower
much earlier when looking for the
airport under less than VFR condi-
tions.
So as you drive our beautiful
parkway watch out for low-flying
golf balls and think about what do
you want your airport to look like. It
is your airport after all. Seems your
current elected city officials accom-
modate corporate jets bringing cor-
porate customers to south end
resorts and not its citizens or actu-
al city residents.

Disarming
honest citizens
As usual, our federal government
does not allow facts to come
between them and their objectives.
The government's intent has little to-
do with Sandy Hook, but is a bla-
tant attempt to take guns away
from law-abiding citizens while
doing nothing about the guns the
hands of criminal or mentally ill ele-
ments. In the case of gun control
and the Sandy Hook tragedy, the
government is refusing to take
into account the following facts
which were revealed in the coro-
ner's preliminary report, as well as
the preliminary reports from the
police:
Adam Lanza tried to purchase
a rifle and was turned down because
he failed the background check.
Clearly, then, that background
check system worked just fine, and
one'wonders why it needs to be
expanded.
Adam Lanza obtained the
weapons he had in his possession by
murdering his own mother and tak-
ing her weapons.
The AR-15 has been charac-
terized by the press and other unin-
formed individuals as a "machine
gun." It is not. Each round must be
fired by a separate trigger pull, just
like every other rille.
Clearly, the focus of govern-
ment actions should be on the
deranged shooters like Adam
Lanza, with well-known mental prob-
lems, who kill the innocent, and
not on the rights of law-abiding cit-
izens.

that needed to be chased away or

me. Even when I was away for
months doing fieldwork in
Southeast Asia or getting my PhD
at the University of Florida, when-
ever I returned they welcomed me
back with enthusiastic "hmm,

faces and leaps of joy. We'd play
games like them holding my finger
in their teeth gently while I
dragged them for a ride in their
pool. They'd climb on my lap and
chuckle in contentment while I
stroked them and cuddled them.
They patiently waited while I put
on harnesses I designed for them
and together we'd walk around the
grounds of Marine-World, telling
people about otters and wetland
conservation while keeping
tourists at a safe distance beyond
the length of their leashes.
I will never have these days
again, holding a dear otter on my
lap, but moments like those I spent
recently on the Greenway bring it
all to life again, in my mind at least.
And with a sighting like this as an
omen, on my first walk of the New

be met. Or at least I'll keep trying!

Historic district


design guidelines


available for review


Pr-ogress cont inues on the
update to the city's historic dis-
trict design guidelines. Drafts of
the downtown and Old Town
guideline updates are available
for review in hard copy at City
Hall, 204 Ash St., or at
www.fti)1.us/historicdistrict/gui
delines. '
Comments on the drafts are
welcomed and should be sub-
mitted to the Community
Development Department by
Jan. 31.
Final drafts will be sent to
the state Division of Historical
Resources by April 30. The
state will review the drafts and
provide comments, and the city
then has until June 30 to final-
ize state recommendations.
Ulxon final approval by the state,
'the guidelines will be reviewed
for adoption by the city com-
mission, which should take
place in early fall 2013.
The Historic District
Council has been involved in


the draft review process and
will take action on the drafts
prior to sending them to the
slate at upcoming regular meet-
ings, where public comment is
also welco me. Staff anticipates
providing an interim update on
the process to the city com-
mission in May.
The Division of Historical
Resources awarded the city a
$19,500 grant to complete the
updates. No match was
required by the city. Thomason
and Associates of Nashville is
the consultant working on the
updates. The guidelines were

Grand theft
A Fernandina Beach woman
accused of stealing a shopper's
purse was arrested on a grand
theft charge Sunday, according
to a deputy's report.
On Jan. 11, a shopper at the
Winn-Dixie in Fernandina
Beach left her purse in her
shopping cart but a store
employee collecting the carts,
later identified as 21-year-old
Victoria Lynn Wegener, told the
customer she had not seen the
bag. But store surveillance
footage showed Wegener tak-
ing the cart, the report said.
During an interview with
police Thursday, Wegener


admitted taking the purse and
removing cash from it before
tossing it in a trash bin at a near-
by business, deputies said.

Apt. 8A, Fernandina Beach, is
charged with grand theft.

searched the residence and
found a grow operation, accord-
ing to a deputy's report.
Acting on a tip, sheriff's
deputies stopped by a Haven
Road residence in Yulee to
investigate reports that Joshua
Allen Blackwelder was growing
marijuana there. Deputies found
49 marijuana plants, several
lights, fans and chemicals used
to grow the plants in the garage,
the report said.

her neighbors, 25-year-old

Friday, but were arrested nev-
ertheless.

old Keowa Kenchara Diaz, had
stabbed him several times while
chasing him from their home.
He had wounds to his hand and
his arm, plus scratch marks and
minor injuries to his face, the

Murder


trial set

News Leader
The week of April 29 has
been set aside for the jury
trial ofJamies Perry Turnage
Jr., charged with first-degree
mu-rder in the death of Kirk
West fall of Yulee, according
to court records. Jury selec-
tion is set for April 26.
Westfall, 51, was last seen
Oct. 8, 2010 at his son's Yulee
High School
fo ott b a I I
game. The
next day his

home and d .
called police. Turnage
On Oct.
10. the
Nassau County Sheriff's
Office announced it was look-
ing for Turnage, who police
believed drove from Florida
to South Carolina before
heading to New Jersey.
Turnage had been stay-
ing on Westfall's property off
Radio Avenue after his
release from a one-year
prison sentence for criminal
mischief in August 2010. The
men reportedly met through
a mutual friend who was try-
ing to help the convicted
felon get his life in order.
On Oct. 14 Turnage was
arrested by FBI agents in
New Jersey after they
allegedly found him driving
Westfall's car.
Two months later, on
Christmas Eve, Westfall's
remains were found in a
wooded area around Patrick,
S.C., in a shallow grave near
a home belonging to Turn-
age's father, authorities said.
An autopsy revealed that
Westfall's death was a homi-
cide, but the cause has not
been made public.
Turnage, 46, has pleaded
not guilty to the murder
charge and one charge -of
grand theft auto stemming
from the theft of Westfall's
car. He remains in custody
at Nassau County Jail on a
bond of $604,000.
The Nassau County State
Attorney's Office has said it
will not seek the death penal-
ty in the case because "there
are not sufficient aggravat-
"ing factors-"




Father a


'habitual

offender?
News-Leader

A notice was filed in open
court Thursday to classify
Robert Anthony Jerrell as a
habitual offender.
Jerrell is charged with

extra towels and told him, "I
.got this," so he left, the report
said.
Roughly 30 minutes later
Jerrell called 911 to say he
found his son dead, sub-
merged beneath the water,
according to the reports.

lie had left the baby in his
brother's ca'e and that he
performed CPR for 15 to 30


minutes before calling for
help, the.report stated. Jerrell
had drained the tub prior to
their arrival, police said.
The infant was transport-
Sed to Shands Jacksonville
where lihe was pronounced
dead. Police said the baby
and a second child, a two-
year-old brother, were left
unattended and the state

Families was called in to
investigate the home.

tinued to Feb. 7 and Ann
Finnell appointed asJerrell's
attorney in place of public
defender Thomas Townsend.

Charges dropped


against couple


GARRF"T PELICAN
News Leader
The State Attorney's Office
has dropped charges against a
Fernandina Beach couple
arrested after drawing a gun
on a family that claimed it spot-
ted them having oral sex while
driving on 1-95 last September.
Initially, Suzanne Welker
and Ernest Felix Gonzales
were charged with aggravat-
ed assault and indecent expo-
sure after witnesses said the
pair pointed a pink handgun
at the family that claimed to
see them having sex on the
highway, according to a police
report.
But a felony charge of
aggravated assault with a dead-
ly weapon and misdemeanor
charges of indecent exposure
and using a firearm under the
influence of alcohol against
Welker, 32, were dropped. An
amended charge of improper
exhibition of a firearm was dis-
missed on Jan. 2, according to
court records.
On Dec. 17, Gonzalez, 28,
received six months probation,
a nominal fine and community
service after pleading no con-
test to an amended charge of
reckless driving, court records
said.
In September, the pair


made headlines after reports
of the incident became public.
On Sept. 16, multiple witness-
es told !In., -..:i, .they saw
the pair having oral sex while
headed north on 1-95 in a silver
SUV.
According to a police
report, Welker was naked and
attempting to climb into
Gonzales's lap when Gonzales
spotted their audience and
slowed to follow them to the
parking lot of Reni's Redneck
Yacht Club on US 17, where he
confronted them.
Witnesses said Welker got
out of the car and pointed a
silver and pink gun at one of
them, the report said. The pair
fled north on US 17 after learn-
ing the police had been called;
witnesses told police.
Police located them in a
driveway at a Fernandina
Beach residence. A handgun
matching witness reports was
found in the vehicle's glove
box and a loaded magazine
was found in the center con-
sole, police said.
Gonzales told police he was
angry because people were
trying to photograph Welker,
his girlfriend. Welker told
police she had been drinking
since 10:30 a.m. and had
stopped about 1 p.m.

He's been playing football in Nassau County since he was five years old but Derrick Henry has taken
his game to the University of Alabama. The recent Yulee High School graduate makes his fourth
appearance on the all-Nassau County football team adn third as the most valuable player. Henry
broke state and national records in 2012, was the 4A player of the year and was selected for the U.S.
Army All-American Bowl, played Jan. 4 in San Antonio, Texas. Henry is pictured throughout his four
years as a Yulee Hornet and, far left below, as a Yulee Middle School player.


Henry county MVP third yearin a row


BETH JONES
News-Leader

It was a record crushing
year for Derrick Henry of
Yulee. The senior running
back, who graduated early
from Yulee High School and
has already enrolled at the
University of Alabama, broke
state and national rushing
records in 2012.
"This was a special year
for the team and the school,
and certainly Derrick was a
big part of that," said Bobby
Ramsay, head football coach
for the YHS Hornets. "I don't
think people understand how
hard it is to do what he did,
considering the attention he
got from opposing defenses.
It put a lot of pressure on him
and on the offense, as every-
one had to step up.
"Derrick and the team
worked extremely hard, com-
peted hard and achieved,
great success on the field and
brought respect and success
on the state level to Nassau
County football."
Henry and the Hornets
went 9-4 and made it to the
state semifinal, a first for
Nassau County. Yulee, the
district and region champion,
lost to Bolles 45-35. But
Henry had another record-
breaking night, setting the
state single-season mark for
rushing yards. He finished
2012 with 4,292 yards and 55
touchdowns on 462 carries -
all state single-season
records.
It was another record,
however, that hurled Henry
into the national limelight.
The 6-foot-3, 242-pound back
plowed through the national
career rushing record, which
stood for 59 years. Henry's
12,212 yards broke Ken
"Sugar Land Express" Hall's
mark of 11,232 yards, set
from 1950-3 in Sugar Land,
Texas.

utive 100-yard games with 45.
Not surprising, consider-
ing he's been rushing for
more than 2.000 yards a
season since his freshman
year.
Henry repeats as the all-
Nassau County :,-'r. II
team's most valuable player.
It's his third time as MVP.
"He strove for perfection
and he wanted all of us to
strive for perfection too," said
senior Jason Ray, a fullback
who will play this fall at


LaGrange. "I'm going to miss
playing with Derrick. It will
be weird blocking for some-
one else."
Ray and Henry were a tan-
dem in the backfield since
their sophomore season at
Yulee.
"We always ran through
the hole together," Ray said.
"We knew each other and
how everything was going to
happen. By our senior year, it
was instinct.
"He had great instinct. I
would block somebody and,
as soon as I made the block,

Brycen Gagnon, junior linebacker, Yulee. The
Hornet had 84 tackles, three quarterback sacks and


he would cut off and be off to
the races."
With his size, speed and
strength, Henry was a beast
on the field, dragging tacklers
with him towards the end
zone. His teammates saw him
in a different light.
"He's just Derrick," Ray
said. "He's a kid like us but in
a really big body. He's built
like a man. But he likes to
joke and play around.
"You catch him singing in
the weightroom before foot-
ball games. Any song that was
on, he would sing it louder

than anybody wanted him to."
And with all the attention
Henry received while at
Yulee, he never failed to rec-
ognize his teammates and the
role they played in his suc-
cess.
Henry was one-of-a-kind
for Nassau County. He scored
63 touchdowns in all this sea-
son for Yulee, passing for one
score. He repeated as the 4A

After the statewide panel
of high school coaches and
media voted, Henry received

the award since Tim Tebow
earned it in 2005 while at
Nease.

ade Florida Football Player of
the Year and played in the
U.S. Army All-American Bowl
in San Antonio, Texas, on Jan.
4. He was a finalist for player
of the year for that game.

Thumbs-up cast netting


"You don't have to load the
lead line of your cast net in
your mouth to throw your
cast net properly," Warren
Wheeler said. "First of all put-
ting the lead line of a cast net
in your
mouth is
unhealthy as
the lead actu-
ally slides
back and
forth on the
lead line that
cast netters
unfortunate-
OUTDOORS ly put in
S.their mouth.
"More
TeSmyl across importantly,
to toss any size cast net prop-
erly I employ a thumb-up cast
netting technique that does
not require putting the lead
line of the cast netvin your
mouth."
Some 70 Nassau Sport
Fishing Association members
amended last Wednesday's
second Wednesday of the
month social at Ten Acres. It
was a perfect evening for
chili; some eight varieties of
hot chili were prepared by
club members and served
with all of the fixings. Tom
and Trish Glenn also pre-
pared a delicious fish dip
made of salmon and trout.
The guest ot honor was
Wheeler of Hilliard, who sells
cast nets and an instructional
video on cast netting.
"You don't have to secure
the lead line in your mouth, I
will demonstrate a much
safer and easier way to throw
a cast net," Wheeler said.
"Using these same tech-
niques you will algo be able to
throw your cast net when net-
ting shrimp and many species
of bait fish that can be later
used for catching game fish.
"Again my technique does
not require you to hold the
lead line between your teeth,
which can result in losing
teeth arid the adverse results
of coming in contact with.
placing the lead line in.your
mouth."
Wheeler really captured
the attention of some 70 fish
club memberseas he proceed-
ed to demonstrate how to
load his eight-foot cast net
without placing the lead line
in his-mouth.
Step one was to' secure his
cast net rope and very top of
the net with his left hand with
the thumb of his left hand
pointing up, "thumbs up."
Step two was to secure his
cast net right in the middle
with his left hand.
Step three included secur-

Warren Wheeler employs his no-mouth, thumbs-up cast netting technique when toss-
ing a large cast net like this eight-footer, top. Wheeler put on an informative cast net
clinic during last Wednesday's Nassau Sport Fishing Association's second Wednesday
social meeting. Properly loading a large cast net with thumbs-up technique while at
the same time avoiding securing the cast net led line in his mouth is key for Wheeler's
castnet technique, above. Local kingfisherman Jeff Dunbar, right, nets a day's supply

portion of the net with his
right hand, swinging it under
his left arm and onto his left
shoulder. Step four was to
gather-once more a third of
the net with his right hand,
"thumb up."
With his cast net loaded
properly with his thumb-up
technique, Wheeler pivoted
back to his left and tossed his
net perfectly with ease to the
delight of his students.


"While living on the west
coast, our home was on the
water, where off our dock I
first took cast netting serious-
ly," he said. "After learning all
I could about throwing a cast
net and employing my own
' techniques, I decided to put
together an instructional
video on throwing a cast net
properly. I also sell cast nets
on my website, www.theartof-
castnetthrowing.com." *


Also unique'are Wheeler's
cast nets, which employ a
strip of tape manufactured
into the bottom of his cast
nets.
"The tape manufactured
into the bottom of the net
really helps the cast net open
properly," Wheeler said.
"When throwing a cast net in
deep water, this is particularly
important as the water push-.
ing against the tape allows the


net to open fully like a pan-
cake."
Wheeler also sells cast
nets at his website, which
range in price from a six-foot
net at $39.95 to a 12-foot deep-
water net that sells for
$139.95. Wheeler also sells
his 45-minute cast net throw-
ing instructional video for
$19.
If you are spending more
time attempting to throw your


cast net properly, Wheeler's
instructional video will help
you cast net baitfish in a
hurry and spend more time
fishing.

Association's year is just get-
ting under way with lots of

timing and runners must wear a chip on their.
shoe to be timed in the race results. Dispo-
sable chips will be used this year, so they don't
need to be returned after the race. Pick up
your chip at the same time you get your race
packet and, if you have your own chip, you can
preregister with your chip number, and deduct
$2 from your entry fee. Personal chips can't be
used if you sign up on race day.
Strollers and dogs aren't allowed on the
race course and headphones are discouraged.
The Greenway surface is especially non-con-
ducive to strollers.
The event is run and walked in memory of
Ned Tyson, who came up with the idea for the
race in 2004 and helped nurture it for its first
three years. The Amelia Island Runners club
assumed management of the event in 2007
and it has become one of the community's
most popular races.
Awards go to the overall male and female'
winners, masters (age 40 and up) and grand-
masters (50 and up) and to the top three male
and female finishers in.15 age groups. There
won't be duplicate awards.
Registration is $25 per person through race
day. Members of Amelia Island Runners get a
$5 discount (not available with online registra-
tion). Proceeds will benefit Amelia Island
Runners' youth scholarships and St. Peter's
Episcopal Church mission trips.
Entry forms are available at Current
Running, 815 S. Eighth St., the McArthur
Family YMCA on Citrona Drive, Club 14
Fitness on South 14th Street and at Amelia
IslandRunners.com, where online registration
and further details are also available. For infor-
mation, visit the website or call (904) 412-5069.

f *PGA Tour Commissioner Tim
Finchem says he would rather
his organization not stray from
the Rules of Golf as determined
by the U.S. Golf Association and the Royal &
Ancient Golf Club, but he isn't dosing the door on
the possibility that the PGA Tour will go its own
way and decide against adopting a proposed
ban on anchored strokes. "Our objective always
has been to try our best to follow the rules
as promulgated by the USGA and the R&A,"
Finchem said. "We believe in the notion that one
body of rules is important, and thafs always our
intent. We just reserve the option not to, if we
have overriding reasons not to do so. And that's
happened a couple of times.'


. An official USGA handicap index that you can use in tournaments requires that
<._ you submit your scores directly to a golf club to undergo the process of "peer
'review". The USGA requires a minimum of 12 scores to be submitted in order to
calculate your particular handicap index. Once your handicap index is calculated
and returned. by the USGA, you now can determine the number of strokes you
receive to adjust your score, when compared to other players. As you continue
to play and post different scores for the rounds of golf you finish, your handicap index will
fluctuate higher or lower depending on the scores you submit. Of course, getting an accurate
handicap index also provides that you tum in an accurate representation of your scores.

.Familyfeuds
The Fernandina Beach Rotary Club recently wel-
comed back guest speaker Dr. Peter Mullen, a professor
at Florida State College of Jacksonville, a native of
Kentucky and an historical expert on the Civil War. His
presentation; "Civil War Feuds: A Family Tradition,"
highlighted the many feuds among family members and
neighbors that were a byproduct of the war often
caused by land disputes. But some of the worst feuds -
in Kentucky, West Virginia and Tennessee were
between those who sympathized with the South and
those loyal to the North during the war. Mulleh also
talked about the notorious feud between the Hatfields
and McCoys that led to 13 deaths over 13 years. Florida
also had its fair share of feuding families, even some in
Nassau County, which he promised to cover in a future
presentation. Mullen is pictured above with club Past
President Shannon Brown.
The Fernandina Beach Rotary Club meets every
Wednesday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Florida

anyone a wonderful compan-
ion. He is neutered, has a

Hannah and her house-
mate Squeekers were brought
to Cats Angels by their owner
who was desperately looking
for a safe place for them
before she went into hospice
care. Squeekers, a younger
and more outgoing cat, adjust-
ed to the busy life at the
Adoption Center. Hannah, a
beautiful black and white cat,
is 5 years old, more reserved
and sometimes seems sad as
though missing her former
life. She is a wonderful; sweet
cat who reacts happily with
kisses when being groomed
and petted. Hannah really
needs another loving family..
Cats Angels is committed to
helping our older felines find
"forever" homes this year -

NASSAU HUMANE SOCIETY


Hazel is a very sweet, very
special dog, and one of our
staff and volunteers' favorites.
She's a 4-year-old bulldog ipix
and was very sick when she
came to us, but she's fine now
and ready to be your happy,
healthy best friend for life.
Just look at her face and you'll
see what a loving, sweet dog
she is she loves people and
enjoys walks. We think she's
housebroken because she,
likes to keep a clean kennel,
and if she isn't she should be
easy to train. She's super-
affectionate and will sit next to
you and soak up all the love
she can. She's good with
some dogs but not all, so if
you have another dog in the
home, bring your pet along
for a meet-and-greet! She's a
great size for a house dog and
has a soft tan coat and soulful
eyes. It's heartwarming to see
a dog who has faced adversity
but never lost her trust in peo-
ple and always kept her
happy, loving personality.
Hazel is special, and you can
give her story a happy ending
by giving her a loving forever
home.


Marilyn is a sweet young
kitty who has lots of love to
give you! She's a brown, black
and white Domestic Short
Hair mix with tabby markings
and a touch of tan. She's about
2 years old and she likes to
play and really loves to be pet-
ted. She's low-key and can be
a bit shy sometimes, but she's
very sweet and gets along
well with the other cats in our
cattery. We call her "Marilyn
Monroe" because she's beau-
tiful and has star quality! You
can see videos of our adopt-
able dogs and cats at our web-
site, NassauHumaneSociety.
com.
The Nassau Humane
Society Dog Park is a great
place for you and your dog to
meet new friends and social-
ize! There's a swimming pool,
a separate area for small dogs,
an agility area and bathing
facilities. The park is open
daily except Tuesdays. We're
at 641 Airport Road, right

landed the biggest commis-

art, a series of murals for New
York's famed Four Seasons
Restaurant. In the two fasci-

Rothko works feverishly with
his young assistant, Ken, in

when Ken gains the confiden-
ce to challenge him, Rothko
faces the agonizing possibility
that his crowning achievement
could also become his undo-
ing. Raw and provocative,
"Red" is a searing portrait of
an artist's ambition and vul-
nerability as he tries to create
a definitive work for an extra-
ordinary setting. For informa-
