: Two former city officials have been
"asked to pay thousands of dollars to the
,Fernandina Beach Golf Club after they
.allegedly took employee discounts for
'no nths aiti they left city employment.
'Firmer city manager Michael
zn.tmbor wa.' aIked to pay $2,301 and
former fire- ciief Chuck Bogle owes
4,3.4ol, according to lenders snt to the
rnitn by the golf club. '
, "I think it's just abhorrent," Mayor
Sarah Pelican said Wednesday. She
was especially inceinsed because

in his separation agreement- "golden
'arachute." in her words in January

I "'- clearly a aviation ofwhatwas

longer entitled to."
Czymbor and Bogle were the only
former employees sent such letters.
Czymbor could not be reached for
comment Thursday, but Bogle said a
former golf club manager, Damiarn.
Brink, authorized the discounted fees.
Brink confirmed that.
"He offered to keep me at the same
rate. I said, 'I appreciate that. That
would allow me to play more,'" Bogle
said. "He said he subsequently bought
a membership in- the club's player
development program that entitled him
to less expensive rates for playing later
in the day.
Brink confirmed that. "I saw the
opportunity of additional revenue. I
ended up talking him into a member-
Bogle, appointed to his job by

Czymbor and fired by the interim city
manager after Cyzmbor's departure,
asked, "Why was the letter sent to only
two people? ... It's small-town poli-
tics." Bogle retired as fire chief in his
hometown of Titusville after 25 years'
service there before coming to
Fernandina and is now assistant fire
chief in Melbourne.
Brink said he, agreed to give
Czymbor the employee rate ,.f$.'22 per
round while he was still receiving sev-
erance pay for the same reason. "They
always played with two or three other
people the additional revenue that
came in on food and beer, merchandise
and everything else was a revenue
windfall," he said.
He said the paii and their friends

in his contract," Pelican said. "He was
never entitled to golf privileges."
According to the golf club letter,
dated July.26, Czymbor played golf
163 times at the employee rate between
Jan. 22, 2012, after he resigned rather
than be fired, and July 7 of this year.
SBogle played the course at a dis-
counted rate 232 times between May 1,
2012. and May 31 of this year, accord-
ing to the letter sent to him. Bogle left


city employment April 30,2012.
"As you are aware, and have
. acknowledged in writing, employment
with the, city is a requirement of City
Employee Golf Membership at

the letter to the men signed by Josh

No oie was injured when lightning apparently struck a window in this public housing apartment,
above, according to Fernandina Beach Police Capt. David Bishop, but several senior citizens had to
be relocated. Fernandina Beach Fire Rescue and police respond to the fire at the Sandridge
Apartments, 2012 Jasmine St., about 10 a.m. Thursday, below. According to Fire Chief Jason
Higginbotham, a direct lightning hit to the structure during a mid-morning thunderstorm was the
likely cause. Janice Ancrum, executive director of the Council on Aging, said city police called her to
coordinate relief efforts with other city agencies to provide care for the displaced senior citizens.

City nixes vote

on land sales

Two parcels of city recreational land
will not be considered for sale, due to
an unexpected 3-2 vote, by city com-
missioners Tuesday.
Mayor Sarah Pelican, Commission-
er Arlene Filkoff and Commissioner
Pat Gass voted against the land sales
Several dozen residents\- most of
them with properties adjoining the
recreational parcels titled City Hall to
voice their objections to the sale of the
two parcels.
, One parcel, at 6.64 acres, is south of
Canopy Drive and. borders Amelia
Island Parkway and several residen-
tial neighborhoods.
A larger parcel, about 28 acres and
bordering Simnmons Road tothe northl'
and two large residential areas, is an
undeveloped section of the Fernandina
.Beach Golf Club.
The Simmons Road property was
:originally meant for expansion of the
club, and revenues from its sale would
subsidize the golf course, an enter-
prise operation that has been losing
money in spite of being managed by a
private company
Because of their recreational des-
ignation, the sale of the mid-island
parcels would have required voter

approval if first approved by commis-
Commissioners had conceded ear-
lier in the month the parcels would be
suitable for future housing develop-
Pat Foster-Turley, a well-known
local zoologist and ecologist and News-
Leiader columnist, pleaded with com-
missioners to vote against the land
,iFoster-Turley, who owns a home
Adjacent to one parcel, said she moved
to Fernandina Beach partly because of
the lush wildlife corridor that runs
from Cumberland Island, Ga., to the
Talbot Islands south of Amelia. She
noted the parcels in question were part
of that corridor
"This is a different habitat froni th?
rest of the island," she said (-,f the
parcels in question. "Don't put us
through the stress of a referendum."
"What kind of houses are you going
to put in next to the airport?" she asked.
Vice Mayor Charles Corbett asked
Foster-Turley why she wouldn't want
city residents to vote for the land sale.
"It's everyone in the city's land," he
said. "You seem pretty confident every-
one would vote against it."

The first phase of the new Main
Beach boardwalk will finally go for-
ward, after city commissioner approval
Vice Mayor Charles, Corbett, who
argued against replacement of the
structure, voted against the project,
which was awarded to BNC Inc. of
Middleburg for $151,400. Project
design is by Gillette & Associates of
Fernandina Beach.
The project Was stalled for at least
a year because the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection said a pre-
vious construction plan was too close
to a dune growing over the present
It also was stalled for a time because
of citizen protest over a 2011 plan for a

Corbett long and Phase II is
390 feet long, he said.
A total of four new
sun shelters will be built, with two
being constructed during each phase.
Corbett complained at Tuesday's
meeting that the new boardwalk idea
came from "the sand dune Nazis in
Tallahassee," and that users would
have to "walk out on these little piers
to see the ocean."
City Recreation Director Nan Voit

Wild Amelia 2014 has announced that the
manatee is the mascot or."critter of the year"
for the eighth annual Wild Amelia Nature
Festival, scheduled for May 16-18
Each year the festival selects an animal as
mascot and provides educational programs
and a logo featuring that mascot. Previous
"critters" include the painted bunting, the
gopher tortoise, the North Atlantic right
whale, the great egret, the American alliga.

Smanatees have torpedo-shaped bodies thai

Though manatees can swim fast and play
energetically in the water, they are usually
very slow movers They are social and quite
curious; these traits can lead them to explore

of 1973,2013 has been a disastrous year for "

than in the previous 10 years combined, due
to a red tide-algie bloom, particularly in
southwest Florida. This algae is a neurotoxin
for the manatee and causes seizures that can
lead to drowning. To date, more than 720
manatees have died in 2013.
This alarming statistic prompted Wild
Amelia to select the manatee for special
attention this year. as did the happier fact that
the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, long
involved with manatee rescue, has committed
to building a Manatee Rescue Center in 2014.
It is hoped that this Rescue Center will bring

Isle of Eight. Flags Shrimp
Festival Executive Director
Sandy Price has retired from
the position. Her last day will
be Sept. 30.
"I've said fora long time that
the 50th (anniversary of the
Shrimp Festival) was going to be
my final year, and I made that
decision," Price said Wednesday.
Price, who held the position
for 13 years, announced her
retirement during a festival com-
mittee meeting Monday.
The 50th anniversary cele-
bration was contentious on sev-
eral fronts, including a decision
by the committee to allow a beer
tent and to move the plrade -
traditionally held Thursday
evening prior to the official start
of the festival Friday to the
Saturday before. Price took a
drubbing as residents voiced
their disapproval. '
"A lot of my shrimper friends
from Georgia, South Carolina
and North Carolina have called
and asked what is going on with
all the changes. It's bad enough
the festival is not really about
the shrimpers anymore butinow
the committee has decided to
change one of the best parts of
the weekend, the parade," Old
Town native, former shrimp
boat captain, and 2010'Pirate
Parade Grand Marshal Capt.
Bunny.Sterling wrote to the
News-Leade: ,*."" '-" "
In another departure from

tracted with sport fisherman,
artist and conservationist Guy

"I was somewhat, taken
aback that a red drum totally
Sdomninates the T-shirt," Wrote
Bob Jones, executive.director

it is more appropriate for a red

Beano Roberts,. a former city

critical of the addition of beer

Sandy, that
there are a lot
of people in

Price are very
grateful for all
the years of
work she has devoted to the
Shrimp Festival!"
The city also has balked
recently at contributing $33,000
for trash removal after the fes-
tival, which festival committee
members have said threatens
the financial viability of the annu-
al spring-event.
Price said Wednesday that
she plans to look for other
opportunities using "all the
knowledge I've gained through
working for the Shrimp Festival
over the years. ... I'm going to
look at all my options."
Her job as executive director
has been a multifaceted one,
and, Price said the annual event.
takes a whole year of planning
by the executive committee and
many other volunteers. Her job
involved meeting and reviewing
sponsors, coordinating com-
mittees, promoting and publi-
cizing the festival, coordinating,
applications for artists and con-

tests, updating websites and cal-
endars and many other duties,
Price said.
"There's a lot that goes on

Shrimp Festival chairman
Mark Deaton said the festival
committee, which consists of
about 35 volunteers, will "have a
discussion on how we will move
forward" before Price leaves
Sept 30. For now, her duties will
be delegated to other committee
members while they consider
whether to create additional
positions, Deaton said.
Price's post as executive
director was "set up as a paid
position in the beginning,"
Deaton said, at about $100' a
"Afteir 'a period of time, she
decided she didn't'want to take
the salary any more," Deaton
said. "She did it for the majority
of time with no pay.... Itwas her

also did "a tremendous amount
of volunteer work."

A dune has been steadily encroaching the wooden boardwalk at Main Beach Park from

should be left up to voters.
Resident Dick Callahan said
he was surprised at the speed o

the sale of the parcels was "not

Bright future for East Nassau'
I'm very disappointed that the News-Leader
allowed guest columnists Robert Weintraub and
Michele Kling to publish a column on Aug. 16
that'was riddled with so many inaccuracies.
Saying the article was "loose with the facts"
would be putting it lightly, when, in reality, the
authors avoided the facts altogether in an attempt
to sell your readers their own "pig in a poke."
The authors claim that mobility fees will leave
citizens on the hook for the cost of development,
but this assertion runs contrary to the proven
results this approach has shown in other com-
munities. Plain and simple, the mobility fee sys-
tem and the tax increment approved for the East
Nassau Community Planning Area (ENCPA)
were.created to ensure that development pays for
itself without a new burden on existing taxpay-
The authors'portrayal of Rayonier also runs
- contrary to common sense. We've been in busi-
ness herefor more than 75 years and we plan to
be here for the next 75 years and beyond. We
know that any project we pursue in Nassau
County must add value to the county if we expect
to achieve long-term value for our company. If
we were to permit anything short of smart devel-
qpmentto occur on our land, itwould devalue the
rest of our assets in the county. That's why our
proposed development is 100 percent compatible
with the vision that Nassau County and. its citi-
zens put forth for its future development throtigh
the Vision 2032 process. .-
The ENCPA isabout creating jobs. in Nassau
County so tlhatfuturegeneri-ations are no longer
commuting to other locations for high paying
jobs. This boldvision will create a sustainable tax
base -f6rthe county, which will benefit every
individual, family and business in Nassau Unlike
the patchwork development of the past, the
extensive planning that went Into the ENCPA
helps the county capitalize oh their i nique geog-
raphy and existing assets,. while, at the same
time, respecting and preserving the county's
existing environment and lifestyle. :
Don't buy a "pig in a poke" from those who
are not beholden to the facts. Working togeth-

er, we can build a bright future for East Nassau
that will benefit all of our citizens.
Mike Bell
Director of Public Affairs
Nassau County resident
The Viewpoint that appeared in (the Aug.
16) News-Leader can only be described as
demeaning, inaccurate and misleading. It was
written to instill fear in Nassau County taxpayers
by describing county commissioners as foolish
("they bought a pig in a poke"); describing
Rayonier and its subsidiary as money-hungry
developers "seeking to sell low value timber-
land 'at residential and commercial land pries";-
and describing Rayonier's legal counsel as noth-
ing short of a sorcerer with things "up his
sleeve," who sold the county commission the
pig in a poke with a "dream of county riches
The article is carefree with the facts in mak-
ing its arguments. First, Rayonier's real estate
subsidiary is TerraPointe, not "TerraPoint."
Second, the East Nassau Community.Planning ,
Area (ENCPA) is just that there is no such
geographic entity as "Yulee TerraPoint City."
Third,- therJ is no such program as the
"Community Development Grant" If the writers
.are referring to the Economic Development
Grant Incentive program recently adopted -by
the county commission, then they have errio-
neously described it (you can read the ordinance.,
for this incentive. in .Chapter-1, Article X Sec. 1-
181 of the County's Code of Ordinances).'Fourth,
-there is. no such term as "Tax Incentive
Financing.'" Again, if the writers were trying to
define the concept of Tax Increment Financing.
they would be better served usingthe Wikiedlia
definition of .the. term found at wiki/Tax_incre-
ment_financing. :
So we've properly characterized the intent
and tone ofthe article and corrected four factu-
al errors in it. Why, then, should the reader
believe the rest of the authors' "facts"? They
masterfully blend real facts "taxes on new
Developments never cover the full cost of coun-

ty services" (this is specifically true of residen-
tial developments, as the authors note in the
Duval County study)--with manufactured facts
- "How much of the (road) costs will be reim-
bursed by county taxpayers cannot be deter-
mined, but it will be substantial according to a
report given the commissioners last October by
the Economic Development Board" the
Economic Development Board does not recall
ever making a statement like that
The article also infers that all of the infra-
structure costs related to the ENCPAwillhappen
immediately. That is simply not the case. The
time horizon for ENCPA anticipates a 50-year
-build-out 6f. 24,000 acres. During the 50-year
build-out, the landowner has voluntarily com-
mitted half of the acreage into perpetual con-
servation. As key strategic areas are developed
(such as the Employment Area near 1-95) to cre-
ate jobs and attract capital investment, thewhole
array of new tools including tax increment financ-
ing 4nd mobility fees will be deployed to pay for
related infrastructure costs. They will not fall
"onto the backs of taxpayers."
The truth of the matter is that Rayonier has
been a good steward and an honest neighbor in
Nassau County for more than three quarters of
century. The company's employees and agents
(most of whom are also our neighbors) are work-
ing hard to secure a brighter and healthier eco-
nomic future for all of us. They deserve our sup-

Will the politicians include their own cam-
paigns when they decide to rid the area-of all of
the"tacky" signs and wavers on the side ofthe
road, or-will it be like most other laws arid not
apply to them? Besides that, at least the people
waving the signs are earning a paycheck. Guess
there will be: a few more in ine at the unem-

that $219 a month sounds appealing. Is it
worth $1,831 in finance charges com-
pared to the 60-month payment of $276?
Do you compromise on the cost of a
vehicle or just decide to pay more for
what you like? There are'not blanket
answers to these questions. Just know
what it is costing if you commit to a long
term on acar loan, particularly a used
car Today's super low rates tend to cloud
the issue.
What can accomplish more to help
manage a payment th.n anything else?
Good old- fashioned downpayment
Banks used to require 20 percent down
on a house digest that a minute. How
could a young couple put $30,000 down
on a$150,000 house today? By saving
toward the objective. Saving to put
money down on a car is a piece of cake
compared to a house, yet few do it. The
objective is just to share a trend towards
longer length loans on used cars and
encourage weighing the costs. Have a

Union soldier gar-
risons at Fort Clinch
are always on the first
full weekend of every
month. Confederate
garrisons are held in
March and October.

"What I like best about being a Civil War
reenactor is it gives me a better understanding
of history, more so than I could ever read
in a book, and it allows me to transfer
that knowledge to the public.'

He brings

history to life


I ) 'ian Butler has been
Interested in the Civil
War since he was five
years old. '
As a little boy, his dad would
take him and his friend Randy to
visit Civil War battlefields in his
home state of North Carolina
so they could go metal detecting
for artifacts.
"This sparked my interest in
the war and history," said
Butler, who has. been doing
reenacting and living histories
now for 18 years, starting when
he was 13.
Being a good re-enactor is a
matter Of research, he notes.
"A lot of us like myself are
Very dedicated to the history
and not just out there to do
themed camping and shoot
guns. Many of us are what we
call Campaigners, who research
not just the battles and statis- "
tics of war, but get into the mate-
rial culture of war as well."
Presenting an authentic por-
trayal is important to Butler,
who dug into CivilWar journals
and letters to learn about what
types of food the soldiers ate,
how they talked and what man-
nerisms they used so he could
employ what he learned out in
the field and in camp at different
"In doing this, we hope to
get as close as possible to learn-
ing how people lived and fouh1tL
in mid 19th centuryAmerica."
Although he had 10 ances-
tors who fought for the
Confederate Army, Butler por-
trays both sides and has visited
many historic locations in pur-
suit of his avocation
"I've been to Gettysburg a
couple times, many large reen-
actments in Virginia, North and
S.urlth Carolia ad maniiiy"iin
Georgia such as the battles of

Chickamauga and Resaca."
The history buff also partic-
ipates in events all over Florida
including a large battle reen-
actment in Olustee every year
along with his wife, Casey, who
is also a re-enactor so theirs is
a perfect match.
"We met at a reenactment.
Turns out she started out vol-
unteering when she was just 13,
too, so she also grew up doing
The couple will join 10,000
other re-enactors to recreate
the 150th anniversary of the
Battle of Chickamauga in
Over 2,300 Confederate sol-
diers perished in that battle and
an additional 14,674 were
wounded. The Union Army lost
1,657 troops and 9,756 of their
troops were wounded during
the Confederate victory.
Many Florida troops, includ-:
Sing men from Nassau County,
fought and died in that battle,
notes Butler, who also reenacts
other time periods such as:
Florida's Seminole War of the
1830s and also helps out at Fort.
Clinch doing the 1898 Spanish
American War.
His reenactor nickname:
started out as Biscuit and:
evolved into Sergeant Biscuit'
after he portrayed a sergeant
for a number of years.
"Soldiers have always been,
big on nicknames and it is true'
in reenacting as well."
In his real-world life, Butler
is employed at Target in Yulee.
A Florida resident since age 10,-
Butler moved from Orlando to
Nassau County in 2011 to be
with his bride. He and his wife
share their Yulee home with
their Corgi-Chihuahua -mix,
Boo. :
"Iovelivingin this area, itis
so beautiful here and with so
much history, it is a unique 'a'rea
