More jobs, fewer trees

New Jersey company to relocate to island


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader


Amelia Island will get 40 new jobs
and more than $2 million in capital
investment, including construction
of a new office building on First Coast
Highway.
That will require removal of about
half the trees on the site next to The
Colony condominium community for
construction of a one-story, 7,600-
square-foot building and adjoining
parking lot.
Gov. Rick Scott announced
Thursday that dtw Marketing
Research Group, Inc., a marketing
research company specializing in
pharmaceuticals and based in New
Jersey, would relocate its corporate
headquarters to Amelia Island.
SThe Nassau County Planning &
Zoning Board approved plans for the
office building earlier this month
despite concerns raised by south end
residents who mobilized this year to
oppose destruction of trees for expan-
sion of a convenience store nearby
on First Coast Highway.
The Nassau County Commission
adopted a revised tree law in late April
in response to the outcry from island
residents angered by the legal clear-
ing of about 30 live oak trees at First


H Coast Highway and
South Fletcher
,-. Avenue. The new
S.,'* Flash Foods, includ-
i ing'a Subway sand-
"- which shop, presum-
ably would benefit
from the increased
traffic generated by
Scott workers in the new
----- ~office building.
The new office
building is to be built under the new
regulations, and will preserve about
54 percent of the trees on the prop-
erty..
The dtw relocation will result in 40
newjobs and $2.1 million in total cap-
ital investment over the next two
years, the governor said in a press
release. Construction of the new
office, which will be completed in
December, will provide local con-
struction employment as well.
The press release from the gov-
ernor's office included this Scott
quote: "The jobs being created by
dtw Marketing Research Group will
provide great opportunities for
Florida families. We are continuing
to reduce burdensome regulations
and restrictions, and will not stop until
Florida has the best business climate
in the nation. With more and more


companies relocating their corporate
headquarters to Florida, we can see
- it's working."
The governor's office issues
numerous such press releases each
day, announcing business relocations
or openings around the state and
emphasizing job creation, a major
objective for Scott, who is expected to
seek reelection next year.
The press release said dtw would
hire a range of positions including
managerial, sales management and
information technology, along with
hourly flex-time positions. Hiring for
the new positions is expected in the
early fall.
"We spent much of 2012 investi-
gating new corporate locations," said
Pamela Statile, president of dtw
Marketing Research Group, in the
press release. "We were looking for
business-friendly states to move to,
unlike that atmosphere in the
Northeast. With a combination of the
lifestyle here in Nassau County, the
tax-friendly environment and the rea-
sonable cost of living, the choice
became a simple one."
Nassau County has touted itself
as being "open for business," reduc-
ing taxes and offering regulatory

Fire tax: $217




per residence


News-Leader


Nassau County Commissioners will
vote in September.on whether to
impose a $217 per home fire tax on res-
idents living in unincorporated areas of
the county. The tax is intended to raise
millions of dollars to help plug a hole
in the county budget for fiscal 201-3-14,
which begins Oct. 1. ,
Commissioners voted unanimous-
ly Monday at a special hearing to pro-
ceed with the tax, subject to future
budget deliberations, including a pub-
lic hearing Sept. 9.
The fire tax would be included as a
separate line item on each property
tax bill. Homeowners, whether mobile
homes .or mansions, would pay the
same $217 rate.
Commercial properties would pay
about 16 cents per square foot, while
induStrial/warehouse facilities would
pay about 6 cents a square foot.


Owners of 20 acres of undeveloped
land or less would pay.about $94 per
parcel while owners of 21 or more
acres would be assessed about 76
cents per acre.
The town of Callahan would pay
$220,570 for its residents and the town
of Hilliard $347,241 for its residents.
Residents and buildings inside the city
of Fernandina Beach would be
exempted because it has its own fire
department, paid for by city taxes.
Estimated net revenue would be
about $8.1 million, about two-thirds of
that needed to balance the county
budget.
Hardship exemptions will be avail-
able, and governments, churches, hos-
pitals and other exempt institutions
won't have to pay the tax.

CLERK OF COURT JOHN CRAWFORD






Judge, clerk


in legal

MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
Nassau County Judge Robert
Foster and Clerk of Court/Comptroller
John Crawford are at odds over how to
pay for certain local court expenses,
and the spat has landed in court.
Foster accused Crawford of reneg-
ing on an agreement to abide by a judi-
cial administrative order and pay
expenses requested by the local court.
Crawford denied that.
In lieu of being held in contempt of
court, Crawford complied with but
then appealed ajudicial administrative
order to the First District Court of
Appeals, contending that the request-
ed payment was not permissible under
state law.
"We're unable to deal with Mr.
Crawford because we cannot count on
him," Foster told Nassau County
Commissioners last week. Crawford,
the judge said, "backed off his
word: ... Keeping one's word could
have resolved this months ago."
Commissioners voted unanimous-
ly to file an amicus curiae, or friend of
the court, brief backing the judge in the
dispute with Crawford.. Commissioners
and Crawford often angle on what are
appropriate expenses.
Crawford took offense at the com-
mission's action and the judge's com-
ments. "I am disappointed that I have
been compelled to respond to person-
al accusations...," he wrote in a letter
Thursday to the commissioners.
The clerk said the commission
acted "without giving notice to me or


flap

the public by including the item on a
properly noticed and advertised board
agenda." The topic was not listed on
the agenda sent out before the June 19
meeting, and Crawford was not present
when Foster made his remarks.
The substance of the dispute,
Crawford wrote, is "a. chief judge's
authority to order a county to use coun-
ty funds to pay an obligation that is
payable from already appropriated
state funds."
As a constitutional officer and thus
"auditor and custodian of all county
funds," Crawford wrote, he takes his
"role very seriously as watchdog of
county funds...."
The case in the appeal involves a
$4,775 payment to a court-appointed
mediator in a divorce case. But it began
in January when the court requested
use of a county fund to payjudges who
were temporarily hearing cases after
the death of former County Judge
Granville "Doc" Burgess.
Crawford said he declined because
the Florida C, n-ri-iii .ii, requires that
judges be paid from state funds.
Crawford met with Foster, Chief
Circuit Court Judge Donald Moran,
County Attorney David Hallman and
commission Chair Danny Leeper on
Feb. 4, and again with the judges and
Hallman on Feb. 12.
Foster told commissioners he
thought the matter had been resolved
after those meetings. "We attempted
originally to work with the clerk to find
a resolution ... and reached an agree-

Voters to decide on



commissioner terms


ANGEI.A DAUGHTRY
News Leader
Voters will make t he final
decision, but city commission-
ers have given approval for an
item on -the city ballot that
would amend the city charter to
increase commission terms
from three to four years.
Commissioners also
approved a change in the char-
ter that would allow for &ity elec-
tions every two years, to coin-
cide with federal, state and
county elections.
Because these are changes
to the charter; the question will -
be put on the Nov. 5 ballot for
city voters to decide.
Commissioner Arlene
Filkoff voted against the
changes, saying she had hoped
the ordinance could have been
implemented without increas-
ing the terms of current com-
missioners.
Filkoff later clarified her pub-
lic remark in an email, saying, "I
agree in principle with four-year
terms; I would like that issue
voted on without being encum-
bered by any other decision."
The reasoning behind the
election date changes is to save
the city between $11,000 and

Up to voters
A referendum question on the Nov. 5 ballot for 'city voters
will read:
"Should the City Charter be amended to provide that city
commissioners shall serve four year terms instead of three
year terms and city elections held every two years in con-
junction with county, state and federal elections?"


$15,000 in annual election costs.*
Right now, the city holds elec-
tions every year, and with elec-
tions changing to every two
years, it can share costs with
the county.
City commissioners are.
elected by group, and with this
new change Groups 1, 2 and 3
would have three-year terms
until the next election cycle,
with fur-year terms beginning
in 201-6.
If approved by voters, the
change would result in
Commissioners Pat Gass and
Ed Boner (Groups 4 and 5) hav-
ing extended terms by one year.
But local resident Lynn
Williams said the changes in
elections would result in. an
unbalanced city commission.
Because three commission-
ers would be elected at the
same time every four years,


demand for fire services."
Commissioners have agreed
at previous meetings that after
years of holding the line on tax
increases and cutting county
services, the balance'has shift-
ed to a need to add revenues in
lieu of further cuts. Additional
tax or fee increases are. still
needed to account for a pro-
jected $9 to $12 million gap
between county income and
expenses in the next fiscal year.
A fire tax was one of the sug-


Williams said, it would mean
electors would be voting for a
majority.
"What happens is you wind
up with three commissioners
being elected as a group,"
Williams said. "A two-person
team has no power."
"If you elect three as a team,
they can do some wonderful
things, but some things that are
not so wonderful," Williams
said. Keeping elections as they
are, he said, allows for slower
changes within the commission.
' Williams also noted that with
runoff elections, which com-
missioners agreed to keep,
there would be still be some
city costs.
"We can stay with the same
system that was put in with
good sense a long time ago,"
he said.

budget workshop this spring.
Others included increases in
select fees and a possible
increase in the property tax
rate, but commissioners have
not made any decisions about
those yet.
The county will pay GSG a

DISPUTE
Continued from IA
ment," Foster said.
"We shook hands on it."
But, the judge told com-
missioners, he subsequently
learned of Crawford's intent
not to comply.
"At no time did Mr.
Crawford extend to us the pro-
fessional courtesy of telling us
he had changed his mind,"
Foster said.
"This is an enormous waste
of time," the judge told com-
missioners.
"I'm embarrassed to be
here. This isn't the way we
should work things out, par-
ticularly in Nassau County."
Hallman backed the judge's
account. 'The clerk unequivo-
cally said he would comply with
the order," he told the com-
missioners.
Crawford dissents from
their take on the matter. He
said his agreement at the Feb.
4 meeting did not involve pay-
ing judges or a mediator. He
said the judges and Hallman
arrived "unannounced" on Feb.
12 and met with him without
his counsel or chief of staff
present. Crawford also said he
subsequently learned that the
chief judge had been informed
on Feb. 1 by the Office of the
State Courts Administrator that
the clerk's position on paying
judges was legally valid, which
they did not disclose to him.
"It is axiomatic that an
agreement does not exist
where a party fails to disclose
information . where it has
an obligation to do so,"
Crawford wrote. He also noted
he could make no agreements
that violate the law. Also,
Crawford wrote, he did advise
Foster of his position subse-
quently.
The dispute reached an
impasse when the coprt

requested $-4,775 for payment
to a mediator, Janet Carver, in
a divorce proceeding. Crawford
declined to pay the invoice,
again saying it was an inappro-
priate expenditure from a coun-
ty account.
On May 13, Moran ordered
payment. In the administrative
order, Moran contends that
mediation expenses are an
expressly approved use for the
county fund. In response,
Crawford wrote and asked
Moran if he would be held in
contempt 6of court if he did not
pay the invoice.
On June 6, Moran's reply
suggested he could be, and
Crawford paid it. The clerk sub-
sequently hired a law firm and
appealed the administrative
order.
In his appeal, Crawford said
Moran usurped his authority
with the administrative order
and asserted thai the clerk of
court, a constitutional officer,
has authority to reject it under
state law.
"In the constitutional role
of clerk of the board of county
commissioners, auditor,
recorder and custodian of coun-
ty funds including responsibil-
ity to oversee the expenditure
of such funds the clerk of court
acts independently of the judi-
ciary," Crawford's appeal states.
.Moran's order "effectively
makes way for a dangerous
loophole in a clerk of court's
function as custodian, account-
ant and 'watchdog' of county
funds," Crawford's appeal con-
tends.
The fund in question, which
has about $140,000 in it, accord-
ing to Foster, is used primarily


to fund"reen Court, Legal Aid
programs, a public law library,
juvenile assessment centers
and other juvenile alternative
programs, according to
Crawford's legal filing. :
The law establishing the
fund sets aside 25 percent of it
for "innovations, as.determined
by the chief judge of the cir-
cuit, to supplement state fund-
ing for the elements of the stite
courts system."
Crawford maintains triat
payment to a mediator in a fim-
ily law case is not such an
"innovation" and should be paid
out of state-funds allocated to
the court rather than the coun-
ty fund.
Crawford said approved
innovations include "pre-trial
services, domestic violence
coordinators, public guardian-
ship for adults, drug court,
mental health court" and-simi-
lar services.
"A chief judge's determiua-
tion that an activity or progrlim
is an 'innovation' does not auto-
matically make it so,"
Crawford's appeal states.
"In the matter at hand, there
is nothing new, different ,or
novel about mediation between
private parties in a family law
proceeding. Such type of medi-
ation is already part of the state
courts system and has an exist-
ing source of funding fr6m
state revenues," it concludes.

When IBen Bernanke
talks, the world listens. And
reacts.
01 course, Bernanke is
thle chairman of the Federal
Reserve that watchdog of
fiscal policy, the monitor of
interest rates and the purvey-
or of economic vitality. If it
sounds like a lot of responsi-
bility, it is.
When Bernanke hinted
-' that the Fed may soon take
Sits foot off the gas pedal and
'stop driving money into the
U.S. economy, the markets
gasped. God forbid, the joy-
ous inebriation from cheap
and easy money could even-
tually end. Why not just take
the punch bowl from a frol-
icking party?
The Fed's main objective
as the U.S. central bank is to
dictate monetary policy. This
'correlates into the affordabil-
ity and availability of money
by guiding interest rates, as
" well as the stability of the
financial system.
In addition, the Fed is
charged with pursuing maxi-
mum employment within the
U.S. economy. While
SBernanke said he and his
board are willing to gradually
pull back on $85 billion of
monthly bond purchases,
their moves would be predi-

Bernanke's term ends in
January, so he may have a
shorter-term mentality than
he had previously. If he is not
reappointed, potential suc-
cessors are Janet Yellen,
Larry Summers and Tim
Geithner.
Many believe that the
recovery in the U.S. econo-
my since the recession of
2008-9 has been due to
Bernanke's calming influ-
ence and wise moves. Once
the Fed had lowered its
benchmark interest rate to as
low as it would go, Bernanke
then proceeded to buy bonds
on the open market push-
ing rates down further, into
even negative territory.
In this way,'mortgage


rates tumbled along with
other lending rates. Money
became more attainable for
individuals and businesses.
lThe premise is that people
and companies would borrow
at bargain-basement interest
rates and then spend, circu-
lating money through the
economy.
One of the detriments of
ultra-low interest rates is that
it robs savers of viable rates
of return on their money.
And many of today's retirees
rely on the interest from
their savings accounts
(including certificates of
deposit, money markets,
treasuries, etc.) to help fund
their lifestyles.
This conundrum over low
savings rates has driven
some savers into the stock
and bond markets as
investors seeking higher
yields. Consequently, as
money has poured in, some
dividend-paying stocks,and
interest-bearing bonds
became irrationally priced
above their true value.
And a real phenomenon is
developing in the fixed-
income arena. It is another
fallout from the easy-money
policies of the Fed. When
interest rates rise (as they
will when the Fed stops its
monthly asset purchases),

Recently Priesident Obama
has been involved in a num-
ber of situations with both for-
eign and domestic leaders
where the conversations have
been difficult and the chances
for agreements appear slim.
However, while agreements
are important, the final deci-
sion as to whether the.situa-
in s ail ev%%il/wins may not
have been written.
Anyone who has spent
years in business realizes that
reaching win/.win agreements
where objectives conflict is
] very tough.
V. In union
negotiations,
"r" l where
strikes are
extremely
painful to
both sides,
agreements
are reached
COACH'S at the dead-
CORNER line, but
'many times
they are any-
Howard thing but
Pines win/win.
Usually the
party who can least afford a
strike capitulates and lives to
fight another day.
At-Standard Brands we
had a Planters Peanuts opera-
tion in San Francisco, where
the union refused to realize
that company needed to make
profits to survive. After years
of trying, we decided the situ-
ation was not fixable. So we
developed an alternate strate-
gy to get rid of the problem
by relocating the operation to
a union free environment in
Fort Smith, Ark. This
reduced our costs by more
than 50 percent. Clearly
it was a win for us but a loss
for the San Francisco employ-
ees.
A different example
involves our Jacksonville
Jaguars. Their star running
back, Maurice Jones Drew,
decided he Was undervalued
and pressed to renegotiate his
contract. The new owner
refused and since he had the
leverage of an existing con-
tract, instead of trading Jones-
Drew, forced him to comply.
Unlike the Planters Peanuts
case, the owner now has a
. disgruntled player, who has
not performed since, and may
no longer be tradable.

Therefore, both parties have
probably lost.
What you should remem-
ber though, if you will be
working with the same par-
ties in the future, is that how
you handle the discussions
may prove to be as important
as getting an initial agree-
ment. The key to win/win is
not always getting the present.
deal, but developing a trust-
ing relationship and respect
for the other party's abilities.
I When I co-founded
BeamPines, the key to our
success was developing
Fortune 100 clients. I
approached one head of HR
and was encouraged when he
began discussing their hiring
of a new resident. We had .
lunch and a few times he
praised'my insights. I decided
to suggest that he give us the
search. "Not a chance," he
replied. "At that level, I only
use top search firms, as I am
not going to be second
guessed by my CEO or the
board." Obviously disappoint-
ed, I lost my enthusiasm for
the meeting. However, when
we parted, he again praised
my insights and suggested we
stay in touch.
Was I just being used? I
decided the head of HR came
across as a capable straight-
shooter and the upside was
worth a continued effort. I
kept in front of him for anoth-
er year providing information
and support. Finally, one day
he advised me that the new
president needed a coach and
wanted to meet. It turned out
to be a great introduction that
he would not have made if he
didn't trust me and respect
my abilities. The company
became one of BeamPines'
best coaching clients and 10
years later, when the head of
HR moved on to a new
Fortune 100 company, we had


two excellent clients. So while
I didn't get an agreement at
the first i .-, iii-.. it still
proved to be a win/win.
Another problem is, where
the objectives are similar but
the parties' approaches to
reach these objectives are
incompatible. While both
President Obama and
President Putin want peace in
Syria, the differences in how
they want peace to come
about make any agreement
virtually impossible. On the
other hand, immigration is a
different type of issue. Most
of the Republicans, the
Democrats and President
Obama want a solution
to the immigration problem
and all are in favor of develop-
ing a path to citizenship. Still,
the Republicans want to
ensure that, unlike what hap-
pened after Reagan's immi-
gration deal, illegal immi-
grants don't keep coming -
here, and therefore want to
deal with border security
first. The Democrats and
President Obama want to
focus first and foremost ot
the path to citizenship and are
not as interested in border
security. Since there is no red
line principle involved, if the
key negotiators in their meet-
ings can develop some trust
and respect, they should actu-
ally be able to come up with a
compromise and a win/winll
solution.
Amelia Island resident
Howard Pines has more than
30years experience as CEO,
chairman and founder of
BeamPines, a premierfirm in

HEATHII ERA. PERRY


News Leader
On Friday at 5 p.m. patriotic songs will ring
out as the Freedom Choral Group of the Boys &
Girls Clubs of Nassatt County makes its debut
during the Fourth of July Independence
Celebration Concert at the Miller Boys and Girls
Club.
The group is composed of 30 students from
the Miller Club in Yulee and 10 from the Roberts
Learning and Achievement Center in Fernandina
Beach.
"The introduction of the Freedom Choral
Group of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Nassau
County will expand our existing quality arts pro-
gram and focus on all genres of music and cap-
italize on music appreciation," said Miller Club
Director Jamie Thompson. "The Freedom Choral
Group will bring an added dimension to the
members and the community by uniting around
a common theme music."
The group was formed following the Let
Freedom Ring Celebration in February.
"Our visionary, Mr. David- Miller Sr., who is
passionate about music, was deeply moved by the
performance of a small group of singers honor-

Club staff members David Bryan IV and
Gwen Mclntyre along with Valerie Jones, music
instructor at Yulee Elementary School, direct
the group as a team.
The students all seem to enjoy participating
in the group. Gracie Freeman echoed their feel-

University of Florida
GAINESVILLE Florida's

inching higher, rising in May
to another post-recession high,
according to a University of
Florida survey.
This is the fourth co'i6nse'u-
tive month'to'show a riseln'the
sentiment of Floridians.
Four of the five components
measured in the survey
went up, and one remained the
same.
"The last time perception of
current buying conditions
reached this level was April of
2007," said Chris McCarty,
director of UF's Sur'vey
Research Center in the Bureau
of Economic and Business
Research. 'That was the begin-
ning of the collapse in the hous-
ing market."
Several things help explain.


Floridians' current optimism.
The stock market reached
record highs by early June. In
addition, the state's May unem-
ployment rate was 7.1 percent
compared with the national 7.6
percent figure.

Consumer confidence could
soon sag; however. "As we
continue to collect inter-
views through the rest of the
month the index will almost cer-
tainly be lower when it is
revised as the stock market has
declined in the second half of
June,"'McCarty said. "However
for now, most consumers are

Union forces approach Amelia Island


TOM RAYMOND
F1r the News Leader
This article is from a pres-
entation delivered at the
Amelia Island Museum of
History on April 19 in the
monthly series "3rd on 3rd
Street."
Brigadier-General Horatio
G. Wright (1820-1899), an
1841 graduate of the U.S.
Military Academy at West
Point, N.Y., was an accom-
plished career U.S. Army
engineer but, through his
modesty and disdain for the
limelight, a man

PART He was an hon-
ONE ored Civil War
battlefield leader
.... for the Union
forces in the Eastern cam-
paigns and was the command-
ing officer at Fort Clinch in
1862. A visit today to the
Amelia Island Museum of
History finds his portrait on
display in the Civil War exhib-
it room but little else to con-
vey his story. Research sheds
new light on his mostly forgot-
ten sa4ga.
Horatio Gouverneur
Wright was born March 6,
1820, in the village of Clinton,
Conn., on the shores of Long
Island Sound. He was the mid-
dle of three sons of Edward
and Nancy Wright. In the
world in which he arrived the
Federal Census of 1820 regis-
tered almost 10 million
American citizens, including
1.5 million slaves, those count-
ed as "3/5 persons." That, of
course, was the constitutional
math conceived in the 1780s
ostensibly to maintain balance
in the halls of Congress. The
13 original States became 15 -
Kentucky split from Virginia
and Vermont was carved from
New York and then 22 states
by 1819, as the Ohio Valley
and the Gulf Coast filled with
migrating Americans looking


for fresh starts and cheap real
estate, aka land grabs from
displaced locals (another
story for another time).
Missouri, claiming slavery,
clamored for statehood
(1821); Maine, a free state
spun from Massachusetts,
entered the Union the year
prior under the Missouri
Compromise of 1820. The
United States acquired Florida
from Spain in 1821; after Gen.
Andrew Jackson, William P
Duval was the first civilian ter-
ritorial governor, 1822-34. In
1823 President James Monroe
issued his Doctrine advising
Europe against any new for-
ays into the Americas. Edward
Wright would have read all
about it in his local press.
Horatio Wright attended
primary schools in his home-
town and his college prep
years were spent at the
renowned military academy
Norwich University in
Vermont where he graduated
at age 17 in 1837. He was
appointed to West Point fri-om
Connecticut in July of 1837,
during the administration of
Martin Van Buren, our eighth
president (1837-1841), who,
incidentally, was the nation's
first minority chief executive
since Dutch was his primary
language. This was a good
time for Wright to begin study
on the banks of the ILordly
Hudson given the Panic of
1837 caused by banldking poli-
tics, and the subsequent sev-
eral-year recession. The four-
year curriculum included
engineering sciences, lan-
guages and law and military
studies, infantry, artilleryand
cavalry tactics, and ordnance
and gunnery. Cadet Wright
graduated July 1, 1841, ranked
second of 52 classmates, and
was assigned Cullum #1060
(Maj. Gen. George W. Cullum,
USMA 1833, had created the
initial Register of Graduates in
1850, which he'd researched

In the autumn Wright commanded the
Federal capture ofHilton Head, S.C, which
became headquarters of the Union forces'
Department of the South.


back to #1 in 1802). Since the
top West Point graduates are
typically assigned as engi-
neers (the second tier as
artillerymen, third as infantry,
and so forth), Wright was
commissioned a 2nd lieu-
tenant, U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers (USACE). Our 10th
president John Tyler (1841-
45) occupied the executive
mansion those days, mar-
shalling the nation through an
uneasy peace as packed
wagon trains rumbled steadily
westward through hostile
Indian territory and Yankee
Clippers carried even more
courageous Americans
around the storm-tossed
Horn.
In 1842 Lt. Wright met and
married ILouisa M. Bradford
of Culpepper, Va. They were
blessed with three healthy
children, Edward, Mollie and
Rosa. Events of those antebel-
lum years saw the nation's
population increase from 13
million in 1830 to 31 million
by 1860; the legal slave count
doubled from two to four mil-
lion. From 1836-1848, six new
states joined the Union, three
free and three slave including
Florida. Wright's early career
track included assignment as
an Assistant to the Board of
Engineers from 1841-46, with
an interim stretch as instruc-
tor at West Point from 1842-
44. In 1845 the year Florida
achieved statehood with
William D. Moseley the first
state governor he was a
member of the Military Tour
of Inspection of the
Department of War to survey
the future sites of Fort Taylor
in Key West and Fort
Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas
west of the tip of Florida (later
the prison of Lincoln conspira-
tor Dr. Samuel Mudd). From
1846-56 Wright was the
Superintending Engineer in
the construction of Ft.
Jefferson and the improve-
ment of the seawall at St.
Augustine. President James

K. Polk held office from 1845-
49, and the Mexican War
(1846-48) was his political hot
potato. Wright was not active-
ly involved in that campaign,
which was the first time the
Stars and Stripes was raised
over a foreign nation in a time
of war. He was promoted to
first lieutenant, USACE, in
1848 and to captain in 1855.
In the 1850s three new
states added stars to Old
Glory all slave-free, thus
skewing Congress to the
North -including California in
1850, Minnesota in 1858 and
Oregon in 1859. Their abun-
dance of wealth, precious met-
als, timber and livestock only
added to the federal economy
and coffers, and to Southern
angst. In November 1860
Abraham Lincoln, a politically
deft abolitionist from Illinois,
was elected president by nar-
row electoral and popular
vote, which pushed South
Carolina to secede from the
United States just before
Christmas.
A few weeks later, after
years of bloodletting between
strident abolitionists and
slaveholders, Kansas
Territory also gained state-
hood, yet another free state.
Florida seceded on January
10, 1861, and 11 states soon
declared individual sovereign-
ty, yet paradoxically strove to
band together in the
Confederate States of
America. On April 12-13, the
unthinkable occurred as
rebels fired upon U.S. troops
at Fort Sumter in Charleston
harbor. The telegraph chat-
tered the chilling news from
Portland, Maine to Portland,
Ore. Virginia joined the CSA
on the 17th, and begged the
question: Were there 11, or
13, or even 15 states in the
Confederacy? Slave states
Delaware, Maryland,
Kentucky and Missouri did
not secede yet martial law was
declared in Delaware and

Gen. Horatio G. Wright, Commanding Officer, Fort
Clinch, 1862.


Missouri quickly came under
Union control as departments
of the Army, while the rebel
state government of Kentucky
moved to Arkansas. (O)n the
other hand, some Southern
counties in Alabama, Missis-
sippi and Florida were not at
all interested in secession.
The great challenge for the
new president was to save the
Union, and with diplomacy
having failed, his only solution
would be through the Union
Army and Navy and his
General-in-Chief of all U.S.
forces since 1841, General
Winfield Scott. But Scott was
an aging veteran of the War of
1812, and after drafting an
embargo plan for Southern
ports in April 1861, he was
relieved by Lincoln with com-
mand given to George
McClellan in October. With
the onset of war, the Virginia
Militia's objectives in
Hampton Roads were control
of Fortress Monroe but that
was unattainable since it was
easily defensible by the Union
- and Gosport Navy Yard at
Norfolk, which was surround-
ed and ordered to surrender.
Enter Union Captain Horatio
G. Wriight. USA Corps of
Engineers. U.S. Secretary of


the Navy Gideon Welles saw
the need to defend the port
and the ships there but the
commanding officer dithered
and the rebels began torching
the facilities. Capt. Wright and
the Third Massachusetts
Volunteers from Monroe were
ordered to salvage what they
could, but arrived too late and
could only complete the dem-
olitions to keep what
remained out of rebel hands.
In August of 1861, Wright was
promoted to major and was
also brevetted (temporarily
promoted) to brigadier-gener-
al, U.S. Volunteers in' :
September. In the autumn he
commanded the Federal cap-
ture of Hilton Head, S.C.,
which became headquarters ';
of the Union forces'
Department of the South.
Next time: Federal forces -
move into Northeast Florida
in early 1862, as Wright takes
command of Fort Clinch,
establishing his headquarters
in the David Yulee house in
Fernandina.

SWho pays

The headline was catchy, "'The future of
Nassau County' is here" (June 19). That senti-
mnent was the result of the county commis-
sion's hearing about al! the wonderful things
that are bound to happen once 4,200 acres of '
Rayonier timberland are developed and put to
their "best use." For the developer all the quiet
lobbying had paid off; the wildly optimistic
projections had been spun the anticipated
property tax revenue, the anticipated job cre-
ation, the economic spin-offs and anything and
everything else positive.
Developers know what elected officials
want to hear and they've developed an intoxi-
cating melody they play over and over. They
play it because it works, no matter the elected
body, no matter the location; the familiar tune
of taxes, jobs and economic benefits.
So, the euphoria and downright giddiness
on display at recent county commission work-
shops was predictable, unfortunately for
Nassau county taxpayers so was the vague-
ness concerning exactly how all the infrastruc-
ture necessary to the project would be paid for
and who would pay for it.
Remember this number -$134 million,
that's the projected cost of the project's infra-
structure roads, bridges, etc. That number
will change, of course upward; those are
2013 dollars and most of the infrastructure will
still be on the drawing boards years from now.
Also, factor in a 20 percent contingency and
we start talking about real money:
Who pays for it? Well, if Nassau County had
impact fees those costs would be the responsi-
bility of the developer, but the county doesn't
have impact fees so a little fiscal creativity is
needed.

What's a mobility fee? I mean, does a busi-
ness have to pay the county if it moves? /"
Exactly how does tax increment financ-
ing work with this project. Normally, current
property tax value for the 4,200 acres (the
entire project will encompass some 23,000
acres, most, if not all of it designated greenbelt
and generates very little tax revenue) will be
established as a base and any additional rev-
enue generated by the project has to be spent


s future?

within that project area.
How will all of the growth impact existing
infrastructure, particularly the failed A1A cor-
ridor? I'm not sure how many more traffic sig-
nals can be installed on that nightmare of a
roadway, so impacts on existing infrastructure
have to be considered.
And this is the most important question:
the nobody-knows-what-it-is mobility fee and
the tax increment financing won't generate any'
revenue until the project is under way, yet
infrastructure is necessary immediately. So,
will the county issue general obligation bonds
to fund the infrastructure, or will revenue
bonds (to be paid for by revenue generated by.
the project) be necessary? Somebody has to
:ome up with the initial dollars to build infra-
structure, Nassau County taxpayers should be"
very watchful and, history says, very much
afraid.
"The future of Nassau County is here."
County commissioners have the developer's
CD and they play it over and over, that
intoxicating melody increased tax revenue,
more jobs, increased economic activity. For
me, it is all reminiscent of the river scene in
the movie, "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou,"
when the three men are mesmerized by the
sirens the commissioners appear just that
befuddled.
Nassau County taxpayers just have to make
sure that future doesn't include paying for
infrastructure that should be paid for by devel-,
opers. That's what impact fees are for.
Oh wait, Nassau County doesn't have
impact fees. We might have a mobility fee,
though whatever that is.

Crane Island
What is going on on Crane Island?
If you search Google Earth, you see
the total denuding of the north end of
the island. There is a crane dredging
a lake. You can see it when you cross
over the bridge; they have made no
attempt to hide it. There ar'e now close
to 150 trucks a day (my estimate)
which bring dumping material to the
island. They are driving too fast over
the bridge and along the first part of
Amelia Island Parkway and up into
Bailey Road where our children play
soccer. Then there is a road that goes
to Crane Island. This appears to be an
environmental disaster in the making.
What is going on?

Editor's note: The north part of
Crane Island is a spoils dumping site for
the Florida Inland Navigation District.

Gentleman and scholar
*The passing of Hal Belcher brings
back a lot of fond memories of the 25
years I worked for and with him. This
spanned the period from 1959-1984.
I've always considered myself a better
person to have known him.
Hal wore many hats during his 65
years in Fernandina. Some of these
were forester, botanist, horticulturist,
land surveyor, historian, Scout mentor
and genealogist, just to name a few.
He was a perfectionist, and it was
a joy working for him. When he d(lid
something, you could bet it would be
done right.
In 1959, Rayonier established their
Technical Control Department to
inventory and map their 920,000 acres
of land in Florida and Georgia. Hal
was chief forester and in charge of
this operation. 'Myself and five other
woods-runners worked for him. This
was before the age of computer. We
gathered the information by busting
through the Ti-Ti bushes and smilax
vines, wading water up to our waist
and collecting mosquito and yellowfly
bytes data.
Hal was good to work with because
he knew the subject and would take
whatever time it took to make sure
you also knew it. I always enjoyed one
remark he made quite often. If you
questioned something about the sys-
tem, he would comment, "Maybe it's.
cockpit problems," which it usually
was.
In his spare time, he spent a lot of
time grafting and propagating camel-
lias and other flowers. As I have grown
roses for 50 years, we had a lot in com-
mon.
He spent a lot of time on the plot.
map of the original section of the his-
toric Bosque Bello Cemetery.
He was also very active in other
community projects, such as preserv-
ing he lighthouse and Fort Clinch. He
hasn't received due merit for all of his
civic deeds. He should have been
receiving credit for those good deeds
while he was living and able to appre-
ciate them. Reminds me of the open-
ing lines of an old poem, "I would
rather have one little rose from the
garden of a friend than to have the
choicest flowers when my stay on
earth must end."
I've always contended that older
local citizens of Hal's stature should be
featured in a write-up in the local news-
paper. Maybe one each month. Let
them know they are appreciated. Some
individuals who readily come to mind
are Jim Thomas, Mary Libby, Melba


Shriver, Willie Mae Ashley and Beano

Guarding our rights
I believe more than ever that we
need to guard our constitutional rights
including the right to privacy. In a
sense, privacy is the right to be free
from unwarranted intrusion into your
personal space, beliefs and effects. As
a society, we have started down the
slippery slope of giving up too much of
our privacy.
It was in my lifetime that credit
bureaus were given a right to share
your information and to be exempt
from many defamation lawsuits unless
you could prove malice. Still .later, we
lost our anonymity when our Social
Security number was tied to all of otur
personal identifying information. With
inexpensive computer storage and the
massive amounts of both public and
private data: it became increasingly
difficult to stay off the gricd With the
advent of social media and the social
and, business need to stay connected
with others, privacy seems to be old
fashioned. We, as a society, have
sometimes made choices to have less
privacy in order to have more con-
nectivity. I have little problem with
people making choices as to their own
privacy.
What troubles me and some com-
mentators is where we have not always
been consulted in the loss of our pri-
vacy. Our founding fathers ensured
we have a Fourth Amendment right to
be secure against unreasonable
searches and seizures but what has
this been' interpreted to mean?
Unfortunately, the real world has a lot
of gray areas and some information
citizens deem private is not deemed
private by public or private entities.
We have all seen the Microsoft com-
mercials which criticize Google for
analyzing your Gmail (without human
intervention we are told) in order to
give advertisers a better bang for their
buck. Is this what you had in mind
when you signed up for your Gmail
account? Full disclosure I am send-
ing this article in using my Gmail
account. If you are one of the millions
who use free email that is stored in the
cloud, did you know that the Internal
Revenue Service (IRS) believes it can
read your emails without obtaining a
search warrant?
Before we start complaining loud-
ly that this is another example of how
things have changed, you should know
that this is allowed by a 1986 law called
the Electronic Communications
Privacy Act which, we are told, was
primarily designed to prevent unau-
thorized government access to private
electronic communications. It allows
law enforcement, without a warrant, to
read e-mails that are stored for more
than 180 delays. Yes, the IRS can read
your email without a warrant. The very
same IRS that has apparently decided
to give extra scrutiny to groups with
the word "patriot" in them who were
seeking nonprofit status.
The latest uproar is about the
National Security Agency (NSA) being
able to gather and store records of
who you called in order to evaluate
these records in the future should the
need arise. What I have not seen men-
tioned is that the government has long
had a right to gain access to who you
call without a warrant. For proof,
Google the 1979 Supreme Court case
of Smith v. Maryland where the jus-


CKMCKEE/HEAUGUSA (GA) CHRONICLE
RICK MCKEE/THE AGSA C 'rA CAHRONICLE


tices ruled that you had no reason-
able expectation of privacy reasoning.
This claim must be rejected. First,
we doubt that people in general enter-
tain any actual expectation of privacy
in the numbers they dial. All telephone
users realize that they must "convey"
Rhone numbers to the telephone com-
pany, since 'it is through telephone
company switching equipment that
their calls are completed. All sub-
scribers realize, moreover, that the
phone company has facilities for mak-
ing permanent records of the num-
bers they dial, for they see a list of
their long-distance (toll) calls on their
monthly bills. In fact, pen registers
and similar devices are routinely used
by telephone companies "for the pur-
poses of checking billing operations,
detecting fraud and preventing viola-
tions of law."
The media has said that the name
of the program where the NSA col-
lects the phone record "metadata" is
P-ism. Theoretically, it lets the powers
investigating terrorism and other
crimes to gain a warrant to searclh
these records when there is probable
cause to believe a crime has been
committed. Unfortunately, we cannot
know for sure because even the orders
allowing them to do this are.secret.
We cannot even be sure a warrant is
required.
We are in a dangerous world where
weapons of mass destruction are
becoming more and more available to
those that would harm us and there is
less room for error. We have asked
for the government to bring the war to
the terrorists instead of letting the war
come to us. We have allowed incre-
mental invasions of our rights in the
name of being safe and secure.
Unfortunately, we just do not know
how many rights we have given up to
do so. If King George III had these
powers, how many think that we would
be an independent country? Yet, as
the New York Times columnist Thomas
Friedman has commented, if we do
not yield some privacy, how long can
we stay relatively safe and relatively
free instead of the pendulum swinging
to such an extent that we are safe but
have very few freedoms to speak
about?
I believe that citizens need to
become involved in these issues. We
are not limited to our constitutional
rights. Some of these gray areas could
be addressed by legislation that says
the IRS cannot dig into your personal
email without a warrant. We should, as
a society, be involved in these choices
whenever possible. For example,
should we amend the Electronic
Communications Privacy Act and
other laws to require disclosure of


these warrants or intrusions as a rule
except in the most exceptional cases.
Privacy is old fashioned but so were
our country's founders. They are not
here to protect us anymore. It is time
for you to be on guard duty when it
comes to your constitutional rights.

Church and state
I fail to see how anyone, contem-
plating the situation in the Middle East
and regardless of religious or philo-
sophical persuasion, can fail to appre-
ciate and embrace enthusiastically the
necessity for a policy of the strictest
separation of church and state.
Niall Shanks in his God, the Devil,
and Darwin (page 233), puts it anoth-
er way: "I can think of no better prac-
tical reason for separation of church
and state than the existence of this
mixed moral bag, consisting of the
good, the bad and the ugly, and all
claiming to speak for God."

Rubio s betrayal
The U.S. Senate is currently debat-
ing a new immigration bill that can
have drastic effects on all U.S. citi-
zens. We should be aware of our sen-
ators' position, especially Sen. Marco
Rubio, a leading supporter of the bill.
When Sen. Rubio was a candidate
his stand on immigration was unequiv-
ocal no amnesty and border securi-
ty as the first step for immigration
reform. In the campaign he stated that
if you grant amnesty, in any form, you
will destroy any chance we will ever
have of a legal immigration system
that works here in America.
With the sirens playing the chance
of a presidential run, Sen. Rubio has
joined the so called "Gang of Eight"
that has introduLced to the full Senate
what they refer to as "immigration
reform."
Some of the features of the Senate
bill are:
Only requires the Secretary of
Homeland Security to submit a plan to
secure the borders in order to start
amnesty for the estimated 11-12 mil-
lion illegal immigrants in the U.S.
Allows members of street gangs
and criminals to receive amnesty.
Essentially halts all deportations
by allowing every intercepted illegal
immigrant to apply for amnesty and
prohibits their deportation until the
application is judicially decided.
Allows up to approximately
500,000 guest workers each year.


This bill can only be described as
insane considering the country's sit-
uation. First, granting any legal sta-
tus to illegal immigrants unfairly
rewards law-breaking. Second we have
about 20 million unemployed and
underemployed American citizens. We
don't need more people; we need more
jobs. Third, the net lifetime cost of
providing government services to
those given amnesty has been calcu-
lated to be $6.9 trillion. The majority of
the people to be given amnesty are
poorly educated and have low
incomes. Only 50 percent of current,
citizens pay income taxes and the
amnesty people will generally not be
paying income taxes. Our government
is broke with annual deficits of $1 tril-
lion and this bill would give more gov-
ernment benefits to people who broke.,
our laws.
This bill will riot solve the problem:
of illegal immigration any more than:
the 1986 law that gave amnesty to 3
million illegals with the promise of.'
border security in the future. Amnesty -
was granted; border security was
never achieved and the problem has'
now increased to 11 million illegal"
immigrants.
Sen. Rubio needs reminding of the:
principles that he promised during his ?
campaign. If he has been captured by:-
the Beltway thinking, maybe he.,
shouldn't be a senator from Florida. -

Help the helpless
As a frequent donor to the Humane
Society, I want to express my sincerely
appreciation to Dickie Anderson for"
her much-needed News-Leader article-
(June 19) which recognizes the fund-:
raising campaign of the Humane:
Society and the deplorable conditions-
of our current shelter.
Being a long-term resident of the,
island, perhaps Dickie can explain to"
me (I am a newbie to the island) how:
such a wealthy community can allow'
our helpless four-legged friends to be:'
housed in such an inadequate facility:
for these past 40 years? No matter
how the islanders and politicians;
espouse the "magnificence" of the'-
island, we should all be ashamed of the
condition of our animal shelter.
Since Dickie is such a "connected"
and much-respected member of our.
community, I hope with her and her;
colleagues' support, we can reach our
$350,000 fundraising goal to allow us;
to break ground on our new facility'
this fall. Again, thank you for your sup-
port.

Year of the Rabbit


t's always interesting to
me to see the intercon-
nected wildlife happen-
ings on our island. I get
information from emails, from
Facebook posts, from phone
calls, from'chats with people I
meet during my walks, from
my own observations. All of
this information, taken togeth-
er, sometimes leads me to
some theories.
Right now, for instance,
We're engaged in fighting a
plague of rabbits in our back
5 yard. We've done everything
we can think of to protect our
raised bed veggie garden
from these varmints. We've
installed "rabbit proof fenc-
ing two feet high along the
open end of the garden, and
put Milorganite fertilizer
(organic, nontoxic, supposed-
ly a rabbit deterrent) in the
garden and along the fence
where no veggies are involved
we've spread
"rabbit repel-
lent" too. But

through the square mesh
holes near the top of the
fence. Rabbit proof, right. Bah
humbug.
So now I've become a trap-

everywhere.
Now, along another track
many people attuned to
nature hereabouts are also
noting the scarcity of bobcats
on Amelia Island. Up until a
couple of years ago people
were 'always sending me pho-
tos of bobcats on our golf
courses and on the Greenway
and I've also seen them often
enough at Fort Clinch State
Park to get some good pho-
tos.
But this is no longer the
case. I haven't seen a bobcat
in a couple of years and many
other naturalists report the
same thing. The going theory
is that a disease of some sort
wiped out the island's bobcat
population. I've even heard
rumors that last year a very
sick bobcat was found on one
of our golf courses and offi-
cials were brought in to
remove.it.
Very recently, though, at
least two individual sightings
of bobcats have been report-
ed, and just maybe they are
repopulating our island once
again. Kathy Russell at the
Atlantic Avenue Recreation
Center is helping to monitor
the bobcat situation. If you do
see a bobcat anywhere on the
island please help out by

And here's where the theo-
ry comes in. Fewer bobcats.
More rabbits. Simple. With


the lack of predators feeding'
on them on Am-nelia Island this
is the "Year of the Rabbit"
regardless of what Chinese
horoscopes say
But nature moves in cycles
and if all goes well and more
bobcats finally are born here
again next year or the one
after might very well be the
"Year of the Bobcat" and rab-
bits will once again take the
backstage.
Well, I don't know about
you, but I can't wait for this to
happen. Seeing wild preda-
tors is always, an exciting mat-
ter for me. I miss seeing bob-
cats. And, growing beans and
sweet pea flowers in my
raised beds is usually fun for
me too, as long as rabbits
don't invade in droves.
I know if I am just patient
this natural balance will be
restored again bobcats eat-
ing bunnies and I will then
have other natural affairs to
worry about. If it isn't one
thing, it's another. But I've got
to say it sure keeps life inter-
esting year after year. And
new material for my columns
keeps coming week after

City to advertise again to fill city clerk's job


ANGELA DAUGI ITRY
News L.eader


With advice from Human
Resources D)irector Robin
Marley, city commissioners
decided at a meeting Friday to
put out another advertisement
for a city clerk, with some
.changes.
SThe meeting was meant to
,,hammer oul a job description
'and minimum qualifications for
,the permanent city clerk posi-
tion at City Hall.
The search for a city clerk to
replace Mary Mercer, who
left in January for a job with
;the sheriff's office, has inex-
plicably been a long and diffi-
cult one for the commission-
ers.
Commissioners put out an
advertisement for the position
..several months ago, but reject-
_ed all 32 r-esumes because, they
said, none of the applicants
.had all the desired qualifica-
,tions.
Commissioners then
offered the job to Senior City
Planner Jennifer Gooding in
May, but she declined to accept
it. After a brief discussion in
,.early June, Deputy City Clerk
-Kim Briley, who has taken over
,the duties since January, was
,appointed as temporary city
.-clerk. Briley had also put in her
resume for the permanent posi-
-tion.

tion sent out previously that
apparently failed to attr-act the
perfect candidate. f
"Some applicants had clerk
experience, but not city clerk
experience," Mayor Sarah
Pelican said of the last batch of
applicants from around the
country. "They were all under-
qualified."
Marley told commissioners
that the job requirements tend
to vary from city to city, and
that applicants rarely meet
every qualification in a job
description.
"You want them to come
armed for stiuccess," Marley
said.
"We need to come to an
agreement as to minimum
requirements," Commissioner
Arlene Filkoff said. She also
noted several times that
records and archives manage-
ment are essential to the city
clerk job and should be a
requir-ement in the job descrip-
tion. She said applicants should
also have the qualities of matu-
rity anld professionalism,
because it. is a high-profile job.
Commissioner Ed Boner


said he would like to see
"strong work ethic" empha-
sized and that the new city clerk
should understand that it was
important to "stay until the job
is dorfe."
Marley said all those quali-
ties could be evaluated during
the interview process, and that
later in the process the city
could do a background check
through Facebook, Google and
credit checks.
City Attorney Tammi Bach
also noted applicants should
understand they would have to
attend evening meetings begin-
ning at 6 p.m.
Responding to a question
about a requirement for knowl-
edge of Microsoft Office Suite,
Pelican noted "pretty much any-
one who has this type of expe-
rience (knows) Microsoft
Office."
Boner asked about typing
ability for the job applicant. "I
can type 100 words a minute,
but I don't know how fast," he
said.
"You want to narrow it, but
not so much that nobody gets
through," Commissioner Pat


Gass said.
Marley also noted that no
job description would stop
unqualified people from apply-
ing. "We have to sift through
the ones we get," she said.
The interview process
should have certain guidelines,
Marley said, and should include
open-ended questions.
"(The applicants) have to
tell stories, and you'll know if
they know what they're talking
about," Marley said. She
also noted that a salary range of
$47,000 to $70,200 is "appro-
priate" for a city clerk. Tempo-
rary city clerk Briley makes
$53,247, but has worked at City
Hall since 2001 as both deputy
city clerk and assistant to two
city managers.
Commissioners decided in
the end to make several
changes to the job description,
to include a B.A. in public or
business administration, pre-
ferred; experience and knowl-
edge of archives and records
management, required, prefer-
ably in the state of Florida; a
strong work ethic; and the
ability to attend evening meet-
ings.
Bach said she would look
over the job description
before posting it and that
commissioners could approve
it at their regular meeting
Tuesday.
City Manager Joe Gerrity
suggested commissioners "try
to work it out so we don't have
to beat this horse again."

City commission



debates role of



advisory boards


ANGELA DAUGI ITRY
News Leader

In a discussion on city advi-
sory boards last week,
Commissioner Arlene Filkoff
said' she had concerns about
the responsibility of the city
vis a vis those boards and the
potential for confusion as to
the board members' expecta-
tions, missions and goals.
Filkoff, who served on sev-
eral city boards before being
elected commissioner, has
regularly brought up the issue
of the boards and their need
for a more standardized
process.
Filkoff is also the only com-
missioner to call a special
meeting of an advisory board,
which caused controversy
because there was no
allowance for such an action in
the city charter.
In April, Filkoff called a
special meeting with the Golf
Course Advisory Board
because, she said, she had
missed a discussion on golf
course conditions at a previ-
ous commission meeting
when she had to leave early.
At the meeting June 18
City Attorney Tammi Bach
said there are three types of
committees: standing, which
are long-term and make rec-
ommendations to the com-
mission; ad-hoc, which have
a specific mission and an end
date, and fact-finding, which
can be appointed by the city
manager or commission.
All committees that make
recommendations to the com-
mission are subject to the
Sunshine Law, Bach said.,That
law states that when two or
more members of a public
board discuss an issue on
which future action may be
taken, the discussion must be
open to the public.
"There are ways to make
committees a valuable part of
the process," Filkoff said. "If
we don't see them as valuable,
we shouldn't waste our time."
She'added, "At the end of
the day, (advisory boards are)
accountable to the commis-


Filkoff


sion, but it's
not practical
to think they
can come
here every
t i .m e .
Filkoff sug-
gested the
1) o a r d s
"have a path
to follow to


get things addressed."
"I would like to see a
process on how we fill vacant
positions," Commissioner Pat
Gass said. She noted that it
seemed as if anyone serving
on a board was a "shoo-in" for
reappointment.
Filkoff said she had known
of committees that "did
tons and tons of work, but
nothing ever came of it. ...
That dampens any citizen's
willingness or desire to get
involved."
Doug Bailey, chair of the
Golf Course Advisory Board,
said he felt the board's job was
to direct golf management
company Billy Casper Golf,
but that the board "didn't get
a lot of input" from City
Manager Joe Gerrity.
Bailey also admitted it was
"a mistake" for the board to
begin meeting every other
month instead of every
month, during a time when
the course was having main-
tenance issues.
"I take responsibility for
that," Bailey said.
Gass said she had served
many years on the Board of
Adjustment and had never
been presented with anything
that gave directions.
Filkoff said she would
work with Deputy City
Manager Marshall McCrary
on the issue and come back
with some proposals for conm-
missioners at a later (late.

The Nassau County
Sheriff's Office arrested
Anthony William Gerhold, 41,
from Jacksonville on seven
counts of schemes to defraud
and exploitation of an elderly
person.
Gerhold was accused of
impersonating a sub-contractor
for Dish Network Satellite Co.
and targeting
Dish network
customers. I i
Gerhold would
approach indi- .,
viduals at their i .
home claiming
he was a rep- i
resentative for Gerhold
Dish Support
Co., a sub-con-
tractor for Dish Network
Satellite, trying to convince
current Dish customers to
upgrade their services includ-
ing any repairs for one year
for approximately $900, police
said.
If they would sign a contract
with him then the next three
months of their satellite service
would be free, Gerhold alleged-
ly told' victims. He would tell
the victims that they would con-
tinue to receive a monthly bill
from Dish, but just to ignore it
because the first three months
would be free and it would be
corrected in their billing depart-
ment, police said.
After the victims received
late payment bills and Dish
Network advised that their
service would be canceled for
non-payment they contacted
Dish Network directly and
,.,-,were informed the contract
'they signed was fi-audulent and
Dish never received any pay-
Sment for satellite service or
repair.
"There have been at least
Seven known individuals vic-
timized so far in Nassau
County, but the suspect stated
there may be as many as 45, so
anyone who believes they may
have been a victim of this
scheme, please contact NCSO
at (904) 225-5174, said Sheriff
Bill Leeper.
Gerhold has also 'been
arrested in Alachua and
Columbia counties for the same
scheme.

Backtojail
According to' a sheriff's
office report, a 40-year-old
Fernandina Beach man was
arrested for driving without a
license six hours after he was
discharged from Nassau
County Jail.
A deputy stopped a white
Chevrolet on South Fletcher
Avenue at 12:50 a.m. June 10
after it struck the curb of the
roundabout at Sadler Road and
continued traveling north,
according to the report.
The car was reportedly driv-
ing into the oncoming lane and
bicycle path. On bringing the
car to a stop, the deputy noted
the female driver was upset
because she said her license
was suspended and she was not
supposed to be driving.
The deputy noted that the
male passenger had watery,
bloodshot eyes, smelled strong-
ly of alcohol and had slurred
speech.
According to the report, the
passenger admitted he was the
driver of the car after being
read his rights. He said he had
traded places with the woman
because he did not want to get
into any more trouble. He
reportedly asked the officer to
"give him a break" because he
had just been released from jail
six hours earlier. The man also
stated he was aware that his
license was suspended, the


report stated.
Deputies took him into cus-
tody for driving without a
license, a misdemeanor, and
back to Nassau County JaH.

Stun gun used
A 32-year-old Hilliard man
arrested for disorderly conduct
early June 7 was brought down
by a stun gun after he was
reported to be "yelling and
screaming" on New Front
Street in Hilliard, according to
a report.


Deputies responded to calls
about a man yelling and wailing
around 6 a.m. After announc-
ing himself to the man, who
was walking toward Walker
Street, the deputy asked the
man to show his hands. When
the man reached behind his
back, the officer deployed his
stun gun, with one lead striking
the man, the report stated. The
officer then "touch-Tased" the
man's back and he went to the
ground.
The man was arrested for
disorderly conduct, a misde-,
meanor, and resisting arrest.

Resisting officers t
An intoxicated 36-year-old
man who was described by
deputies as "extremely bel-
ligerent" was arrested after he
tried to grab a stun gun from
the belt of the arresting officer,
according to a June 12 police
report.
The man, found behind the
A1A Liquor Store in Yulee
around 9 p.m., became angry
after deputies asked him for his
address, the report stated.
When placed in handcuffs and
escorted to the patrol car, the
man refused to sit down and
began to kick backwards, try-
ing to strike the arresting offi-
cer.
When the officer placed the
man against the vehicle, the
man reached backwards and
grabbed the handle of the offi-
cer's stun gun, to pull it from
the holster. The officer pushed
the man to the ground to regain
control, causing the man's head
to strike the concrete and cut
his forehead. The man contin-
ued to kick, according to the
report.
Two more deputies arrived
with the Nassau County deten-
tion van, but the man contin-
ued to kick at them, the report
stated.
He was transported to
Baptist Medical Center Nassau
for treatment and then to
Nassau County Jail.
Donnie Eugene Gros-
Ventre; 1655 Lime St., Apt. 17B,
Fernandina Beach, was booked
for resisting an officer with vio-
lence, a felony, and disorderly
intoxication in a public place
causing a disturbance, a mis-
demeanor, according to the
report.

Beasley at helm of all-county softball team


Yulee junior intentionally I L I

walked 21 times in 2013 -A


BETH JONES
News-Leader

Karla Beasley's.home run
record is still intact. But she's
not too happy about it. She
wanted to break it.
Beasley, an upcoming sen-
ior at Yulee High School, set a
county record in softball in
2012 with 12 home runs. She
just had 11 her junior season
but it wasn't for a lack of try-
ing.
No one would pitch to her
the last four games of the sea-
son.
Beasley drew a base on
balls 26 times all season; 21
were intentional.
"It's an honor," said
Beasley, 17. '"People look at
you and say, 'We don't want to
let her hit.' After a while, it
starts to get aggravating
because I know I could really
help my team out with just
one swing. Get a double, get
her to score.
"It kind of takes the game
out of your hands. There's
good and bad to it."
But Beasley admits if she
were a coach, she would
probably do the same thing.
"I don't go up to the plate
with the mindset of I need to
hit it out right here," she said.
"It just kind of happens. We
don't work on hitting it over.
We just work on getting solid
contact."
Beasley, the most valuable
player on the 2013 all-Nassau
County softball team, was still
a force at the plate this season
for the Lady Hornets. She hit
.502 with team-leading 33
RBIs, seven doubles and a
pair of triples.
On the mound, Beasley
was '10-4 with a1.27-eai-ned,
run average. She struck out
117 batters in 74 innings, giv-
ing utip 20 hits and walking 26.
"She doesn't really make
me work too hard behind the
plate," said Yulee catcher
Courtney Dietz, also an all-
county selection. "We work
well together. She always has
a great attitude toward the
game. She keeps her head on
straight."
Beasley said a'highlight of
her junior season was beating
West Nassau in the district
championship game. The dis-
trict softball crown was a first
for Yulee High School.
"I think the difference
from last year was the fight in
our team," Beasley said. "If ,
we were down, we'd be cheer-
ing in the dugout. We would-
n't give up hope."
Beating a bigger school
like Sandalwood was also
memorable for Beasley.
'They had a good record
and had beaten some very
good teams," she said. "We
came in there and it was a
blowout. We run-ruled them.
I thought, we just beat a real-
ly good team.
"I don't think the team
realized what we just did.
They made it seem so-effort-
less. It was one of those
garpes we dominated in
everything."
It was a good lest too for
the Lady Hornets, who will
move up to 5A next season.
"A lot of people know the
talent we have," Beasley said.
"Since the girls saw the drive
we can , I, r,; illM, have, I
hope we take it another step
and hopefully beat some real-
ly good teams next year."
While Beasley is spending
her summer anchoring the
offense of the Angel Gold
traveling team she leads
the team with seven home
runs halfway through the sea-
son and visiting college
campuses, Yulee is still on
hei- mind.
"I don't want people to
think about the colleges look-
ing at me," she said. "That's
not what drives me."
Younger players who look
up to Beasley are her motiva-
tion.
'The girls from the middle
school were holding up signs
during the season," she said.
"It's amazing to have little
girls looking up to me. That's
what drives me."
And Beasley is quick to
give back. She offers hitting
and pitching lessons to her


young admirers, who keep up
with her on Twitter.
"The first thing they ask is
if we won," she said. 'Then
they ask if I hit a home run."
"She hangs out with them
for hours at a time, trying to
make them better," said
father Tim.
Angel Gold recruited
Beasley, just one of three
Florida players ,on the roster.
She's traveling to North
Carolina, South Carolina and
Georgia for games this sum-
mer. The team has qualified
for the ASA national champi-
onship.,
And nobody walks Beasley
intentionally. Not ,at that level.
And that makes her smile.
"As a dad, I want her to set
these (high school) records,"
her father said. "But if I'm
coaching, I'm not pitching to
her. I told her don't be mad.
She's mad because she's
chasing that record. But her
on-base percentage is off the
chain.
'This is about more than
just her."'
Her dad is one proud papa
this summer as he watches
coaches from division one
schools keeping a close eye
on his baby girl.
"I think how cool that is,"
he said.
But Beasley is taking her
time picking a college. At
least 15 schools have
expressed an interest and all
but one are division one
schools.
"I have a soft spot for
Eastern Carolina University,"-
Beasley said. "It's beautiful up
there.
"You have so many pros
and cons for each school. It's
going to be hard.-It's stress-
ful. I've been working for this
for so long.
"I haven't cut them out in
Florida, but I've always want-
ed to go away. Not too far
away from home. I've visited
a lot of colleges, the coaches
are all nice. It's going to be a
hard decision."
"She's so soft-hearted. She
said, 'I don't know how I'm
going to tell them no,'" her
father added.
While she's honing her
game for the next level, she's
also concentrating on school
work. All of her classes are
dual enrollment and she's just
credits away from an associ-
ate degree.
"I have the option to grad-
uate early but since softball is
at the end of the year..."
Beasley said.
The 2013 all-Nassau
County softball team:
Karla Beasley, junior
pitcher and infielder for
Yulee. Beasley came up one
home run shy of her 12
homers last season. She had
just 11 home runs this season
but she was intentionally
walked on 21 trips to the
plate.
Beasley hit .502 with 33
RBIs, seven doubles and two
triples. On the mound,
Beasley was 10-4 with a 1.27
earned run average. She
struck out 117 in 74 innings
pitched, gave up just 20 hits
and walked 26 batters. She
was co-MVP last season as a
Lady Hornet.
Abigail Lawrence, soph-
omore pitcher, Hilliard. The
Lady Flashes' top pitcher had
a 1.53 ERA with a 13-10
record on the mound. She
pitched 80 strikeouts and
gave up just 28 walks in 129
innings. She had 39 hits in 77

Spooning the moon


Moon phases arc
definitely critical
to your fishing
success.
Typically during a full or new
moon period, tidal currents
will be stronger at inlet
mouths, bays, tidal estuaries
*and even at
nearshore
fish havens.
Gamefish
may become
active during
a smaller
window of
t the tide.
There are
OTh DOORS exceptions.
.... During the
newmoo p months of
Teiy L acoss June and
July king mackerel can be tar-
geted at inlet mouths, where
there is a good running tide
producing ideal conditions for
carrying their fertilized eggs.
The best kingfish action
comes during the full and
new moon phases when
strong tides are present.
Offshore fishermen will
find during a full or new
moon that gamefish will hold
close to bottom structures,
including sunken wrecks,
rock ledges and hard bot-
toms. Strong currents will
also attract baitfish schools
and king mackerel and
grouper can be found
ambushing an easy meal.
Trolling a saltwater spoon
deep during a full or new
moon phase is not only an
old-time deadly i-l1;,IL tactic
for both king mackerel and
grouper but is still a deadly
fishing tactic today.
Keeping your saltwater
spoon in the strike zone is
critical when targeting deep-
water grouper and kingfish. A
drone spoon fished deep with
the aid of a downrigger places
the flashy spoon in the exact
strike zone. Also using a
short drop back distance
from the downrigger release
clip of 20 feet allows sharp
turns of the trolling boat,
where the spoon or spoons
are trolled in the strike zone
for a longer period of time.
The constant turning and
change in the swimming pat-
tern of spoons trolled deep
also promotes more strikes
from deep-water gamefish.
Terminal fishing tackle
includes a 30-pound class, six-
foot trolling rod and 3/0
trolling reel. Attach a 50-
pound barrel swivel to the tag
end of the terminal fishing
line; then haywire wrap a
seven-foot section of No. 5
coffee-colored piano wire to
the remaining side of the bar-
rel swivel. Finally, the tag end
of the wire leader is attached
to the spoon using a haywire
wrap.
Typically deep-sea fisher-
men will troll two spoons
deep with the aid of a pair of
downriggers. The first down-.,
rigger.spoon is trolled 10 feet
off from the bottom, while the
second downrigger is trolled
some 20 feet off from the bot-
tom. The trolling speed
ranges from 3-5 knots, allow-
ing for sharp turns while
keeping the trolled spoons in
the strike zone.
Full and new moon phases
also produce extremely high
tides that typically flood the
spartina marshes. Tailing red-
fish will move into the flood-
ing marshes feeding on fid-
dler crabs, shrimp and small
blue crabs. An old and mod-
ern-day fishing tactic for flood


tide redfish entails casting a
gold Johnson spoon into the
flooded marsh while retriev-
ing the spoon just under the
surface.
Redfish spoons come in a
variety of sizes. Obviouslythe
heavier the spoon, the further
you can cast it.
Spooning tackle includes a
15- 20-pound class, 7 1/2-foot

it gives you a lot of confidence," said Els. ,

Els is a two-time winner at the U.S. Open

One of the most difficult shots to master is a high, soft lob shot to a real tight pin
Si placement, such as right over a bunker. The key to this shot is to get the ball to stop
S..quickly once it lands on the green in order to get the ball as dose as possible. The dcuh
s || of choice for this shot will have to be the 60 degree lob wedge as the standard sandI
S wedge will cause many more sculled shots than good results. As for the actual shot,
:s it is quite difficult to get a consistent swing. Going against most of what we have been
taught in golf, you have to cock the wrists while taking a long backswing. Use your torso on the
downswing, maintaining the cocked wrists and the blade open through impact. The follow-through
should have the clubface facing up to the sky to try and generate the proper bounce and spin.

- it must be summer


How do we know at our house
that summer has arrived? It's easy. If
the washing machine is running con-
stantly it's hot. Whether the Big Guy
and I are working in the yard, play-
ing at golf or tennis or just going out,
we come back with hot sweaty
clothes. Another load of laundry. The
thump, thump of the washer and
dryer is a constant in our summer-
time lives. Damp sandals and athletic
shoes line up by the back door.
Everything is moist and organic.
More often than not thunderstorms
roll in every afternoon. The skies
grow dark and ominous, distant rum-
bles become louder and louder and
the rain falls in torrents. Then, as
-' though someone has thrown a

switch, it stops.
Steam rises from
the garden. The
moisture p)llrmiat.'s
everything. The
lawn is squishy and
we are convinced
we can almost
watch the grass
grow.
Our screen
porch becomes our
living room. We
enjoy our morning
coffee and adult
beverages at the
end of the day.
Instead of television


we watch the birds that gather al our


feeders in the late afternoon. A spe-
cial treat is our pair of painted
bu)tntings that are regulars. We
watched a pair of cardinals teaching
their young to take seeds from a
feeder. Big Guy battles the squirrels
that return again and again. He
greases lie poles and enjoys watch-
ing the devilish creatures slide, only
to try again and again.
When the temperatures start to
climb in early summer, we find our-
selves checking the gauges in our
calS an11 1,, ll-i tiii-' our activities.
Very hot, humid days knock me off
my feet. I sweat. No glistening for
this girl. My faces turns a less than
att active shade of red. When my
tennis team practices our coach .


watches me carefully and encour-
ages frequent water breaks.
Mopping my brow With one of the
many towels that are resident in my
tennis bag, I remind myself to
remember the danger signs of over-
heating.
A trip to the Emergency Room
was a wake-up call. Heatstroke is
caused by prolonged exposure to
high temperatures or physical activi-
ty in hot weather. lThe very young
and very old are the most vulnerable.
Heatstroke occurs when your body
temperature reaches 104 degrees.
Symptoms includes excessive sweat-
ing, difficulty breathing, nausea,
lightheadedness and feeling faint.
Our coach taught us a quick


response to the danger of heat-
stroke. Cool or cold water on the
back of the neck will offer immediate
relief. If not treated, serious conse-
quences can occur which include
stroke and kidney damage and, yes,
even death.
Careful what you wish for. Many
of us moved from places where the
dreaded cold of winter and inches of
snow made Florida the perfect place
to live. Well, it is mostly Hot, humid
weather has its challenges too. We
are not complaining, just adjusting. I
would rather sweat than shovel snow
any day.

comments. Books are available at

CATS ANGELS


Adele, above right, and
Taylor, above left, are pastel
calico sisters with mostly
white fur with patches of light
orange and gray. Adele's coat
is medium length and Taylor .
has short fur.
These girls are new to the
Cats'Angels Adoption Center,
but are making a good transi-
tion and becoming friends
with the other cats and our
volunteers.
These sisters are young
cats who are just 1 1/2
years old and both have
sweet personalities. Adele
and Taylor are looking for
someone to make a real com-
mitment and give them a for-
ever home. Cats Angels is
committed to helping all our
cats, especially our older
felines, find "forever" homes
this year. You can make a
difference in the life of an ani-
mal in need. Read more
about our cats patiently wait-
ing for their new lives on our
website at
www.catsangels.com.
Cats Angels Thrift Store/
Adoption Center at 709 S.
Eighth St. is open Monday
through Saturday from 11
a.m. til 5 p.m. or you can call
321-2267, to meet with an
adoption volunteer. All of our


cats available for adoption
have been spayed or
neutered, tested, vaccinated
and micro-chipped.
Please stop by the
Cats Angels Thrift
Store/Adoption Center and
help support the kitties
through adoptions, purchases
and donations of resale
items or for cat care it is all
greatly appreciated. Much
needed supplies are Fancy
Feast canned kitten food,
Purina One dry kitten food,
cat litter, bleach and paper
towels. Cats Angels does not
receive government monies of
any kind.
We are an all-volunteer'
organization and it is only
your generous donations,
grants and fundraising that
support our Spay/Neuter and
Adoption programs.
At this time of year, shel-
ters and rescue groups have
more kittens and puppies than
they can handle and, sadly,
many will not find homes. You
can be the one to prevent this
by getting animals spayed and
neutered. Call Cats Angels at
321-2267 for lower-cost
Options. We can humanely
trap feral cats. Spay and
neuter the responsible solu-
tion.


S NASSAU HUMANE SOCIETY


Lace is one of our staff's
favorites, because she has a
loving disposition and really
wants to please you. She's a
young bulldog mix, about 2
years old,end she's fun and
very affectionate. She came to
us last winter and was adopt-
ed, but her family had to
return her because of circum-
stances that had nothing to do
with her. They gave us feed-
back about her, and said she
gets along well with children
and other dogs.
She's still working on
housetraining, but she's very
smart and eager to please.
Hler favorite thing in the
world is to sit in your lap or
by your side and have her
tummy rubbed she'll lie
there in total ecstasy.
We think she'd be
great for an active single .
owner or family, and with
some training we think she'd
be a wonderful running or
jogging partner. Lace has a
gorgeous black and white
coat (and face), a beautiful
smile, and a sweet personality.
She is a dog who will truly
adore you!
Justin is a very special cat!
He's quite beautiful, with gor-
geous green eyes, and also
very affectionate and sweet.
He loves to be petted and will
even roll over to get all the
love he can. He's a Domestic
Short Hair/Bengal mix, and


is accustomed to living with
people, but his owners could-
n't keep him. He's not a
"scratcher" and we think he'd
be a wonderful addition to
any home, including single
folks or families, and from
children to seniors. He's a tall
cat with long legs and he
keeps himself in good condi-,
tion he doesn't over-eat and
keeps himself trim. We think
you'll love Justin! You can see
videos of our adoptable dogs
and cats at our website,
NassauH'umaneSociety.com,
and submit an online adoption
application.
Adoption is the best
option and through the
end of June, you can adopt
for less! For the rest of this
month we have $50 Fidlos
and $40 Felines, roughly
half our usual adoption
rates. We also still have our
usual specials, Seniors for
Seniors (reduced rates for
senior citizens adopting sen-
ior pets) and Tuxedo
Tuesday (25 percent off
black or black-and-white cats
on Tuesdays.
Our adoption center is at
671 Airport Road in
Fernandina Beach, open
11:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-
Friday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
Saturday, (904) 321-1647,

you for considering a pet from
our shelter!

Seeldking do-gooders
Trish Sorum, co-manager of Nassau
Humane Society's Second Chance resale
store on 14th Street, is looking for three
special people who- came to the store
recently. Two children created and sold
paper airplanes at the end of their drive-
way. Their grandmother then brought
them to the store where they donated
the money they earned "for the dlogs in
cages so they can get a home."
"I was so surprised and so touched, I
completely dropped the ball," said
Sorum. "I didn't scan the crayon picture
of the dog in the cage, I didn't get names,

HOME & GARDEN BRIEFS


Farmers markets
Landon Stevenson of Simply Savory
Gourmet Dips has joined the Amelia Farmers
Market as a new vendor. With over 25 dips to
sarnmple in their wicker (lip chillers, get your
cup of pretzels and work your way around their
booth. They are always adding new and unique
d(lips to their line so everyone may have to take
a trip ilround-the booth each Saturday. French
Onion Crab, Heavenly Horseradish Portabella
& Ari-tichoke, Sundried Tomato & iKacon and
Spinach Ari-tichoke are just a handful of the
gourmet dip mixes and herb blends Simply
Savory will have to sample. Their most
popular, the Roasted Garlic & Herb, is perfect
in a sour cream/mayo mixture or added to
olive oil for a bread dip. 3 Amigos dip is for the
spicy palate, or try Divine Dill to add zest to
Greek yogurt, and the Smokehouse Bacon &
Tomato dresses up a plain hummus. Your
favorite veggies or chips are great for dipping
or try Tropical Delight with cool whip and
cream cheese with firuit wedges. Several of the
herbs are perfect for sauces or as a dry rub for
meat. And the answer is yes to two questions:
Simply Savory is the gourmet dlip mix vendor
who participates in the Amelia Farmers
Market's Wine Festival and Garden Show and
their wicker dip chillers are available for pur-
chase.
Enjoy fresh from South Florida green
coconuts with the nutrient-packed coconut
water while shopping or with a little instruc-
tion, learn how to open them to enjoy at home.

away baguettes, croissants, and fruit pastries.

Amelia Island.
June 29 includes beautiful bouquets of sum-
mer's mixed flowers, giant sunflowers and deli-
cious cherry tomatoes from Cabbage Creek
Farms, located in Nassau County.
The market also is excited to announce that
Dips2go is coming home. Owners Sherry and
Mitch have been selling their locally made, all-
natural clips, rubs and spice mixes at this loca-
tion for six years. Three years ago Dips2go
introduced nine varieties of all-natural rubs
that quickly became wildly popular and a staple
at the farmers market in Fernandina. Last year
Dips2go opened a storefront, River City
Gourmet, at the Jacksonville Landing and has
expanded their terrific product line. They now
offer five flavors of infused olive oils (garlic,
Jasil, lemon, rosemary, blood orange and
Greek olive oil), a 12-year aged balsamic vine-
gar, salts of the world, tomato couscous, wild
rice mix and flavored pankos. They plan to
bring a fabulous selection of dips, oils, balsam-
ic vinegar, sea salts of the world, rubs to the
market on a weekly basis.
Bring your family, friends, neighbors and
well behaved, leashed pets, and join the market
on Saturday from 9.a.m. to 1 p.m. in down-
town Fernandina Beach. Music will be provid-
ed by up-and-coming folk band, "Lumberjack
Party."
The friendly farmers' market is open each
and every Saturday, rain or shine, near Jack
and Diane's. Visit FernandinaBeachMarket
Place.com, find them on Facebook or call 557-
