Board OKs CraneI slan d r e vi sion MARY MAGUIRE News-Leader The recent sale of Crane Island uncovered trouble with a conservation easement that requires the preservation of 130 acres of wetlands undera Nassau County or dinance. During the title transfer, agents lear ned that the state owns 18 acres within the protection zone. The previous owners didnt know said local attorney Mike Mullin, whor epr esented the sellers in a r equest to revise the ordinance. Mullin asked the board at its meeting last week to satisfy the pr otection easement by combining the states 18 acr es with the buyers 117 acres. Commissioners approved the plan 4-0. Commissioner Danny Leeper did not attend the meeting in a scheduled absence. Crane Island is a 207-acre site located along the Intracoastal Waterway, west of the Fer nandina Beach airpor t. The property is visible to people looking toward Amelia Island while crossing the Shave Bridge. Previous owners secured county approvals in 2006 to build a mix of 169 houses and townhouses on the wet lands site, as well as a broad range of recreational facilities, including a clubhouse, pool, tennis cour ts and piers. ANGELA DAUGHTRY News-Leader A new valet parking plan at St. Michael Catholic Church may solve ap arking problem triggered by its upcoming expansion project but s ome parishioners are not happy about it. The citys Technical Review Committee met Thursday to discuss a plan by the churchs architect, Jose M iranda, to convert a 16-space parking lot off North Fifth Street into a 48-s pace valet lot for parishioners attending services at St. Michael, 505 B roome St. downtown. According to a revised expansion plan, the churchs total seating capacity will be 459 seats after the expansion a reduction of 69 spaces from the original plan. Currently the church seats 289. Deputy City Manager Marshall McCrary told parishioners the reduction in the number of seats for the c hurch expansion also lowered the number of required parking spaces o n church property from 62 to 45. The parking lot on North Fifth S treet, which is between the parish office and parish house, and across the street from the main sanctuary, would gain 32 spaces if cars were parked properly. However, the plana lso calls for the removal of a 35-foot magnolia tree on the northeast side of t he lot. A handful of parishioners who a ttended the meeting expressed concern about what would happen if ever the church ceased doing valet parking, and about removal of the tree. Marshall noted the church would be r equir ed to comply with the valet parking plan if it gets appr oval fr om t he city A test r un would also to be done o n the parking lot, Miranda said, to make sure 48 cars would fit. Miranda said the chur ch could hir e a professional valet service to keep things running smoothly during services. Based on our r eview we ar e pr e par ed to find this plan compliant, M cCrary said. He also noted the valet p arking plan was fully independent of a n earlier plan by city staff for angled parking in the downtown area to incr ease street parking spots. Parishioner Brian Downey said his main concern was with traffic flow and the safety of downtown r esidents, but he added that with valet parking t hose parishioners arriving earliest w ould be the last to have their cars r e tur ned. He also said a disabled car parked at the front of the lot would cause a gr eat inconvenience, and expr essed concern over the liabilities of valet parking. Several parishioners at the meeting were opposed to removal of a magnol ia tree in the corner of the lot. The t ree, with a 29-inch diameter trunk, t akes up just one parking space. This is a 100-year-old magnolia tree, said parishioner Joan Bean. Nobody is standing up for it. Downtown r esident Car ol Hays, who lives on North Sixth Street directly behind the parish house, also questioned the need for cutting down the tree. Im not quite sure it necessitates removal, Hays said. She suggested the tree be saved to keep the shaded canopy over the parking lot. No per mit has been issued to cut the tree down, according to McCrary, but it would have to be cut before the new parking lot is constr ucted. No permitting has been issued yet, but (the church is) free to make application at this point, McCrary wrote in an email last week. The issue with this and other trees which lie in an ar ea which is to be dis turbed is their ability to survive, McCrar y wr ote. Magnolias in par ticular have significant r oot systems which extend far beyond the base of the tree. Simply omitting the space which contains the trunk of the tree would surely result in the death of the tree.

Pro: Borrowing the money leaves cash in the bank and g ives the appearance of a beefy bank account. Con: A loan adds a n estimated $2.5 million in interest payments over the life o f the loan, according to the budget office. How to offset that cost? Sell the property. Commissioner Danny Leeper says after the s heriff moves to the new location by the judicial annex in Y ulee, the land where the old office sits can be sold. He said t he property has been valued at $3 million. The sheriffs office is a collection of trailers located abouta quarter mile east of I-95 on A1A. Commissioner Pat Edwards h as said using cash is the most responsible option. But heres t he con: that approach drains the countys bank account andt he budget office has little s aved for emergencies. T heres $500,000 in the bank now for storms, enough to run the county for three days, according to county officials. Whatever approach the board takes, the decision will have long-term implications for t he countys finances. But budge t of ficials warn the county is f acing other concerns. Revenue has to be increased, said County Manager Ted Selby at a meeting last week. We feel were at a critical juncture. Selby and Assistant County Manager Shanea Jones said them oney coming in to the county i s significantly less than the m oney going out. e have a structural imbalance, said Selby. We feel that this is a serious problem. Selby and Jones, who is also the countys budget director,of fer ed an over view of the c ountys projected fiscal 2014-15 b udget last Friday during a m eeting or g anized by the Amelia Island Plantation Community Association. The association regularly invites local leaders to share information about timely topics. Several dozen people, including three county commissioners, attended the program. Organizers explained that Commissioners Leeper, Barry Holloway and Steve Kelley would not comment on the presentation because of S unshine Law restrictions. And they didnt. After cordial greeti ngs, the commissioners seated themselves several rows apart, listening without comment throughout the program. Selby said the county has balanced the budget over recent years using money from r eserve savings and by making deep cuts to operating costs a nd staff. He said further reductions are not sustainable. Were bare bones at this point and at the bottom of cutting expenses, said Selby. Last year, commissioners briefly considered a slight prope rty tax hike, but chose dipping into the reserve fund instead. Were patching holes with r eserves and deferring capital m aintenance, said Selby.If we d ont get more money in here services have to go away Selby told the crowd that 24 cents of every dollar collected in ad valorem taxes is spent too perate the county. And 50 percent of that money goes to publ ic safety, including Fire Rescue. The school board gets the b iggest chunk, not us, said Selby. Aging infrastructure is also a concern. We have 600 miles of roads, half of them ar e paved and the other half is dir t, said Selby All of them require regular m aintenance. T he county cur r ently spends $1.5 million on roadway maintenance, but outside auditors recommend spending $6 million. Selby said defer ring pay ments does not eliminate them. You will pay me now or pay me later , said Selby S elby and Jones spent mor e than an hour explaining the countys financial condition, displaying the numbers in a black and white PowerPoint presentation. eve been in better s hape, said Jones. The last time the county coll ected an equal amount of collections and expenditures was f iscal 2008-9, when the annual budget was $70 million, said Jones. In the following years, she said, the county refinanced l oans and refused to take on more debt. C redit rating agencies rewarded the county for these d ecisions with an excellent credit rating. But both Standard & Poors and Moodys noted the countys structural imbalance and its need to upgrade aging i nfrastructure. An independent auditor r ecently praised the boards financial condition through the e nd of September last year, but noted funding concerns in the days ahead. You have big projects on the horizon and youre going to have to look at how youll pay going forward, said Ron Whitesides of Purvis Gray & Company, LLP in Gainesville. The associations president, B ob Spaeth, who introduced S elby and Jones (both U niversity of Florida graduates; both have masters degrees in business administration), received the first surprise reaction from the crowd when he told them that assessed valuations of properties are down $ 2.3 billion from 2008 to 2013, d ropping from $8.3 billion to $6 b illion.

Housing prices are going up, right? Y es, said Jones. But to cover a $12 million projected d eficit, she said homestead valuations need to jump 10 p ercent. I dont think thats going to happen, do you? she said. Can we write more traffic tickets? I know it seems like deputies are out there all day writing tickets, but we can keep only $12.50 of every ticket. Thats it, said Jones. And we cant use the money for o perations. More stores are opening. Is that helping? Do you know the Villages of Amelia where Home Depot i s, located with all the other stores? said Jones. Well, Villages of Amelia generates $215,000 a year in property taxes. So, wed need 56 more of them to collect $12 million. How about the resorts, are they helping? J ones said the property tax bill for the Omni resort this y ear was $600,000. ed need 20 Omnis to generate $12 million, said Jones. Whats happening with the money from the 1-cent sales tax? That was supposed to be set aside for capital improvements, but weve been using t he money for operations, s aid Jones. H ow about a user fee, like a gas tax or fire assessment?

The wheel is one of the most useful andlife-changing i nventions of all time so there is no need to recreate it. A s Fernandina Beach officials go around a roulette w heel of emotions in trying to decide how to proceed with downtown revitalization, all they have to do is look to the south for the answer. There, aw heel is being duplicated. In the brightest move yet, J acksonville officials are copying a redevelopment plan fr o m Charlotte, N.C. With this as a guide, city officials have come up with Unity Plaza, a public/private par tnership that will hopefully r esur rect d owntown Jacksonville. T he plaza will include a 2 ,000-seat amphitheater, a seven-story apartment complex and 18,000 square feet of retail space. By bringing more people to downtown to live, work and play, the p laza could help unify f ragmented neighborh oods like a cog in a wheel, for instance. The key a spect of the plan is a coll aboration of private and public resources. The city has provided $2.6 million towar d the constr uc tion of the $30 million pr oject i n the Riverside area. J acksonville Mayor Alvin B rown has strongly supported the project. What is happening here is a team effort, Brown says, and it shows what can happen when the public and private sectors work together B rown says the private s ector is the engine of the p roject, while the citys contribution and role provide leverage to afford the best return on everyones investment. Brown spoke at the recent g roundbreaking of the project. T aking things a step further, City Council President B ill Gulliford expressed his approval and belief this project will energize downtown. Gulliford also alluded to a chamber of commerce leader-s hip trip to view similar residential and retail developm ents in Charlotte and learn from them. Her e in Fernandina Beach, city officials have gotten a taste of what public/private par tnerships can entail with the librar y r econstruct ion. The private sector had to g enerate funds to match tax p ayer contributions in bringing the library improvements to fruition. However, city officials have only chewed on a privately funded pr oposal for a water front park in downtown F ernandina Beach, refusing t o wholehear tedly swallow t he idea. City leaders have been entertaining a variety of other ideas also. They have appointed committees to study the waterf ront, the CRA, the business arteries in town. While there h as been a lot of looking, no action has been taken so far. C ity leaders here have to make some difficult decisions and then back their convictions by offering limited taxpayer funds (that taxpayerss hould get to vote on in the November election). In this w ay, public funds can complement what is provided by the private sector just as Jacksonville is doing. Offering public funds towar d a downtown r edevel opment package ser ves as an e nticement, and private m oney will often follow Not o nly would the taxpayer money serve a financial purpose, but it also makes the city buy in, or commit, to a project. The city s funds and com mitment ar e missing right n ow. Without it, all the brill iant ideas and initiatives for i mproving downtown and the waterfront and arteries such as South Eighth Street will stall. While a wheel can carry a pr oject for war d it can also create a skid usually from a lack of decision or from an impulsive action.

Jess was a freshman living i n the Talbot Hall dormitory when Frances Huston Millikan Reitz, wife of then-President J. Wayne Reitz, visited while he was sick in bed in the UF student infirmary. Mrs. Reitz sent my mother a note letting her know I was all right and not to worry, Jess E lliott said. That really pleased my parents, and Sharon and I both appreciate the interest that the University of Florida showed in us and the opportunities the university provided for us. The couple has expressed their gratitude with a $30,000 gift, creating a scholarship in t heir name to help undergraduate or graduate students cover the cost of working toward their education degrees. Jess Elliott, born and raised in Pahokee, received three degrees from the College of Education a B.A.E. degree in 1962, his M.Ed. a year later ( concentrating in modern European history) and a doctorate (Ed.D. izing in educational psychology with a research focus. He says he was the first graduate of the research program in that specialty. Elliott singles out two C ollege of Education professors Wilson Guertin and Douglas Scates who were instrumental in building my coherent approach to evaluating school effectiveness. Sharon Elliott was born in T ampa, spent two years living in UFs Flavet (Florida Veterans) Villages while her father pursued his second UF degree) and spent the rest of her childhood in Thomasville, Ga. She attended UF for two years and later received her bachelors degree in from A gnes Scott College. She managed a travel agency Atlanta for many years before she retired. The Elliotts have one grandson, Micah Mathis, who is a senior in electrical engineering at UF. Jess and Sharon both have many relatives who also g raduated from UF. The Elliotts moved to Amelia Island in 2013 after spending most of their adult years in Atlanta, where Jess worked as an administrator for the Georgia Department of Education, using his statistics e xpertise to help evaluate the states student-testing and school and teacher accountability programs. He retired in 1995 and worked as an education research consultant until closing the books on his business last fall. Jess and Sharon Elliott may d escribe their gift as payback to the University of Florida, but they are really paying it forward by helping future students of our college realize their dreams of becoming educators, said UF education dean Glenn Good. New scholarship donations like the Elliotts are g ifts that keep on giving, year after year.

Adkins office has b een receiving calls from constituents in regard to companies offering assistance, for a fee, to secure unclaimed money. This fee ranges up to 20 percent of the funds that held as unclaimed property. Upon review w ith the state agency that holds the funds, Adkins office was able to confirm that no f ee is required to claim. Per the Florida Department of Financial S ervices website, Currently, the Chief Financial Officer holds unclaimed property accounts valued at more than $1 billion, mostly from dormant accounts in financial institutions, insurance and utility compan ies, securities and trust holdings. In addition to money and securities, unclaimed p roperty includes tangible property such as watches, jewelry, coins, currency, stamps, historical items and other miscell aneous articles from abandoned safe deposit boxes. Unclaimed money is deposited into the state school fund, where it is used for public education. There is, however, no statute of limitations, and citizens h ave the right to claim their property any time at no cost T he Florida website allows a free option to retrieve any funds held by the state and h as links to other states unclaimed property websites. Visit https://www.fltreasurehunt.org/ to determine if there are monies held in your name and to begin the claim process. P er the website, Florida law allows Florida licensed private investigators, CPAs a nd attorneys to register with our office as claimants representatives. These firms have access to our records and frequently c ontact account owners, or their heirs, soliciting contracts to assist in the recovery for a fee. The site then provides a link to determine which companies are registered. Our office responds to the needs of all o f the constituents. Many individuals may be unaware there are monies on deposit w ith the state of Florida. Our citizens do not need to pay a fee to find this money, nor s hould they ever pay money up front to any association claiming to provide this service for them, Adkins said in a press release. Adkins office and staff are always availa ble to assist with state agencies related issues and are available Monday through F riday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Phone 491-3664. No fee to get unclaimed mone University of Florida GAINESVILLE Consumer confidence among Floridians rose in March, reaching a postrecession high last reached in May and June of last year, according to a new University of Florida survey. (This looking at the entire history of the index, but it is as high as we have achieved since before the r ecession began in December 2007, said Chris McCarty,d irector of UFs Survey Res ear ch Center in the Bureau o f Economic and Business Research, which conducts the sur v ey. This increase is consistent with our expectations that consumer sentiment among Floridians would remain near post-recession h ighs, given relatively good e conomic news and that Congr e ss provides budget certainty with deals to fund federal budgets through this year. C onsumers overall opinion that their personal resources a re better now than a year ago rose to the highest level since A ugust 2007, shortly after the Great Recession began.E xpectations of being better o ff financially a year from now a lso increased. Confidence in the nations economy for the coming year increased while trust in its performance over the next five years remained unchanged. Only one of the five survey components d eclined, respondents verdict o n whether now is a good t ime to buy major household items. There are other signs of an improving Florida economy. Floridas 6.1 percent unemployment rate in January dropped two-tenths a percent from December, which was four-tenths a percent lower than the national 6.4 percent r ate. Meanwhile, both Floridas labor force and the numb er of employed grew during the same period. Floridas tourism industry has benefited from a harsh win-t er in the north and is making s ome gains in shifting to highe r technology jobs, including biotechnology, McCarty said. This shift will be important as Florida attempts to diversity its economy to include economic sectors less subject to recessionary effects from other s tates. T he states retail sales outp erformed the national average in January, in part, because severe winter weather elsewhere limited shopping, McCarty said. Floridas inflation rate is lower than elsewhere in the country where cold weather triggered fuel price increases. The median price for an e xisting Florida single-family home rise $2,500 from January t o $165,000 in February, a 10 percent increase from a year a go. Although housing prices remain about 36 percent offt heir peak value in June 2006, t hey are stable and unlikely to d ecline significantly over the year, he said. McCarty predicted the biggest threat to the economy and consumer confidence in the near future will come from Russia, not Washington. For m any U.S. consumers, espec ially those who remember the C old War, the image of Russian tanks moving through Europe is all too familiar, he said. The Russian move on Ukraine is the kind of news that can make at least a temporary effect on consumer sentiment. Consumer confidence at post-recession high JACKSONVILLE Florida State College at Jacksonvilles OSHA Training Institute Education Center has signed a host training site agreement with the United Safety Council,a nonprofit safety training o rganization with offices t hr o ughout central Florida.

MARY MAGUIRE News-Leader W here did you drive today and how far did you travel? H ere are some averages on local trips. The drive to and from work in Nassau County averages 12.2 miles. T he trip to school, daycare and church averages 8.8 miles. G oing shopping? That requires an average drive of 6.5 miles. W hen it comes to vacation driving, apparently just a few local drivers made it past the county line because the average trip for R&R is 31.4 miles. T his information is part of an engineering plan created to c alculate mobility impact fees planned to start this summer f or local development. The whole study is based on trip generation and length, said the countys Growth Management Director Peter King. T he focus on local travel is important because as develope rs build houses, shops, offices or churches, more cars hit the road. And more cars mean more wear and tear. If youre going to build, youre going to pay, said King i n a phone interview last week. eve had some spurts of h eavy building but growth is steady. A special mobility task force formed almost two years ago to find a new approach for imple-m entation and come up with fee amounts. T hey partnered with a local engineer to assess current road c onditions and analyze future needs, paying $176,842 to Gillett e & Associates in Fernandina Beach for the report. O ver the last few months, an outside law firm has been c hecking the groups work as well as writing a new mobility fee ordinance thats now under consideration. Nabors Giblin & Nickerson has been paid $11,000 for its work to date. Commissioners took their f irst look at the proposed ordinance and listened to the highl ights of the engineering study at their meeting March 24. A second review is planned for the April 14 meeting. The board wants Commissioner Danny Leeper to be part of the discussion because he served as the task force chair. Leeper did not attend the meeting in a planned absence. The proposed fees target n eeds in three zones, including e ast and west of I-95 and inside a planned Rayonier development around U.S. 17, and north of SR 200/AIA known as the East Nassau Community Planning Area (ENCPA) in Yulee. Under the new plan fees are generally down for business d evelopment, except for restaur ants and fast-food operations w ith service windows. Fees on the West Side are slightly higher than they are on the East Side of the county. King s aid that is because drivers travel farther in rural areas. He said t he numbers should be reconsidered every three to five y ears. Lets say we get a population burst because an international company with lots of employees moves to the county, said King. Well want them to pay for the impact that relo-c ation will have on roads. (Unless mobility fee waivers are i ncluded in the lineup of financial and tax incentives that a big company would likely receive for relocating here.) ou pay for your share of the impact that youre going to have, said King. This pay to play approach is included in the plans executive summary. New growth should pay for itself, accordi ng to the documents, guiding p rinciples. H ere are fees under the plan. Mobility impact fees for a single-family home east of I-95 (also known as zone 1 be $1,150. The fee west of I-95 (also known as zone 3 be $1,168. C ommercial properties are b ased on square footage.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 7A W EDNESDAY A PRIL 2, 2014 OPINION News-Leader VOICE OF THE PEOPLE W W h h a a t t s s t t h h e e p p o o i i n n t t ? ? Re: Fishing for industry. Here we go again, another positive column about growth. Make that, more cut down trees, more traffic problems, more concrete anda sphalt, etc. Steve Nicklas colu mn gives a glowing report about t he ef f or ts of the Nassau County Economic Development Boar d to increase jobs. He says that Steve Rieck, the head of this boar d, is excited about the opportunities in Nassau County for businesses to locate here. B ut why do residents want these j obs. Most residents have a job, b ased on the latest unemployment figures. So who will get these new jobs? It has to be outsiders coming into the ar ea. For what possible reason would local people want outsiders coming into the area. Arent the roadsc rowded enough already? Isnt Main B each cr owded enough on the w eekends alr e ady? Why do we have Steve Rieck on the county payr o ll tr y ing to make the quality of life in our ar ea go down? His activities can only be neg ative ones. Florida is now the third most p opulous state, just surpassing New Y ork. Anyone want to tr y for number t wo? This gr o wth mantra at any cost has to stop. Gov. Scott keeps talking about the need for more jobs. But just as here in Nassau County, when almost all people already have a job, whats the point of more? We can start a no-growth trend her e in Nassau County All we have t o do is convince our commissioners w e have had enough lessening of the quality of life and want a change. Step one is to shut down the Nassau County Economic Development Board. Hal Mather Amelia Island U U n n i i o o n n s s This is in r esponse to Marian Phillips ONeal s viewpoint (March 26). Ms. ONeal is absolutely correct about unions correcting worker abuse in industries many years ago. But as laws wer e passed to cor r ect those abuses, unions to a great extent outlived their usefulness. In order to justify their existence, and to keep union membership strong, unions kept getting higher and higher pay for skilled and unskilled workers, plus more and more benefits. The sometimes unreasonable wages and benefits wer e instr umental in wrecking the U.S. auto industry and others. They also contributed gr eatly to the loss of many American jobs when factories moved overseas. (Tax policies and corporate greed were also responsible for our loss of jobs.) Today unions contribute much of their members dues to liberal causes and liberal politicians. Liberals somehow think that a well will never run dry and that it is possible for individuals, corporations and countries to borrow themselves out of debt. I do not know exactly which policies NESPA supports in the local schools, but I do know that ther e are very good veteran teachers that will tell you they know how to teach and have excellent results to prove it, but they dont need panels of socalled experts changing teaching methods that ar en t any better than what they have been doing for years. The primary reason children cant per for m at grade level is their parents don t help them and try to motivate them to learn and to achieve to the best of their abilities. Thank g oodness for teachers who accomp lish so much with children who come from terrible, pitiful, family situations. Unions have their place, but they have hurt our economy more than they have helped in recent years. They should try to help the workers and also be concerned for the company whose workers they represent. If they were required to invest a reasonable amount of money in the companies whose workers they represent, they would be more concer ned about the ef ficiency and bot tom line of those companies. Ray Cason Fernandina Beach N N e e w w l l o o o o k k a a t t d d e e p p r r e e s s s s i i o o n n As a psychotherapist for 25 years, the most common emotional and debilitating emotion that Ive obser ved is depression. If youve experienced or are currently feeling down, you know what I mean. In order to measure this feeling among patients, I use a depression screening questionnair e, including a 1-10 rating of feeling low. One is the lowest feeling, while 10 most positive. Nearly ever y one comes up with a number W e move forward from that point. Recently, Richard Friedman wrote an article in the New York Times regarding the value of Botox in treating depression. One of his comments is that if you can t fr own, it may be harder to be depressed. The idea is that folks who take Botox ar e happier because, in par t, they cant frown. He goes on to suggest your facial expression transmits a positive message to the brain and you feel better. Research is being conducted to evaluate the basis of this theor y What I would say is that your facial expr ession does have an ef fect on your feelings. Having gone through a major depressed period about 18 years ago, I understand the misery. Im certain that there were few smiles or other positive expressions in my life. Medication eventually got me out of the dark. Even now though, like many others, I often tr y to think of a positive, smiley-face thought to lift my mood and feel good! The Botox theory that if your face cant frown, your brain cant be unhappy may or may not be accurate, and this treatment is expensive. What I do know fr om person al experience and reports from patients is that most of us are capab le of going from being down to r ejoining the world, becoming more social, and smiling again. There! Doesn t that feel better? Rober t B. Howat, LMFT Fernandina Beach P P l l a a s s t t i i c c b b a a g g s s In recent years, plastic bags have been a hot environmental topic and they ar e star ting to heat up her e locally too. While there are several advantages to plastic bags http:// gr eenliving.lovetoknow .com/Advant ages_of_Plastic_Grocery_Bags in general the disadvantages to the environment are much greater. Some of you may remember when the single-use plastic grocery bags wer e first intr oduced. It was 1982. Kroger, a Cincinnati-based grocer y chain, began to r eplace its paper shopping bags with plastic; they were novel and easy to use. So easy that now theyve become a habit and the average American utilizes between 350 to 500 of these single-use plastic bags annually. Though easy enough to r ecycle at your local grocery, Americans only r ecycle 0.6 per cent of the 100 billion plastic bags we take home from stores every year. The rest end up in landfills or as litter. They have become the new urban tumbleweed seen blowing down roadsides, caught in trees and shrubs or floating in rivers as they make their way towards the ocean. W e all need to stop pr etending that these bags as fr ee things have no external costs. Plastic bags are a huge hazard to marine life. The bags can be swallowed, wrapped around the necks or fins or animals and poison the waters ar ound them as they leach chemi cals into the water. I can t tell you that this is tr ue, but the statistics Ive r ead say that an estimated one million birds and 100,000 sea turtles and other sea animals die of starvation each year after ingesting discarded plastic bags which block their digestive tracks. And accor ding to the British Antarctic Survey, discarded plastic bags have been found as far nor th as the Ar ctic Circle and close to the Antarctic in the south. A plastic bag when exposed to sun will break down into smaller fragments. Since plastic bags never biodegrade, this may take anywhere fr om 10 to 100 years (estimates vary), yet their environmental legacy probably lasts forever. When plast ic weathers in seawater it produces n anoscale particles which are easily absorbed by phytoplankton and zooplankton, the base of the marine food web. This is especially fright ening because plastic waste in a marine environment has the ability to attract contaminants. So the plastic particles that are being ingested by fish and other marine life can potentially transport these highly toxic and persistent pollutants (POPs or organic pollutants) right into our food chain. Now we know ther e ar e gyr es or large rotating currents in the ocean. These have lower sea levels near their centers and act as accumulation zones for marine debris. The largest is thought to be the size of T exas. These toxic patches ar e too large to be cleaned up. Estimates calculate that the lar gely plastic patches ar e gr owing tenfold each decade. Without reducing our reliance on plastic bags, the Great Pacific Gyre and others will continue to grow exponentially. Naturally the best solution to plastic bag waste is to stop using disposable plastic bags altogether. T aking r eusable bags to the gr ocer y stor e will cost you a few bucks but you will have the peace of mind that you are not contributing to the post-consumer plastic waste that is affecting all corners of our planet. Reusable bags also come in all sorts of smar t and stylish shapes and prints, making your shopping trips a little less r outine and mor e fun. The most dif ficult par t of changing a bad habit is remembering initially, so make taking in your reusable bags a regular part of your shopping routine. If you already have a cart going back to your car, or if you only have a few things, sim ply ask that your items not be bagged. Habits take a few weeks to ingrain but persever e and soon it will become second nature to take a bag whenever you leave to shop. A new local group, Bag the Bag Fernandina, has recently been formed. Help us change the language used in stor es to Did you bring your own bags? rather than Is plastic OK? Join us at our next meeting 3:30 p.m. Satur day, April 5 at Sheffields. Over a lifetime, use of reusable bags by just one person would save over 22,000 plastic bags. Now isnt that a good incentive? Julie Fer r eira Fernandina Beach Kidney stones a pain, but kidneys a gift T his column will mean more to you if: 1) y ouve ever suffered from a kidney stone; 2) y ouve tried to stand on your head to ease the pain or 3) youve made a speech accompanied by a kidney stone. I can answer yes to the first two situations. But I know only one person, Rick Stor y a friend fr o m Clayton, Ga., who can answer yes to the thir d situation. Rick, who for five years was personal a ssistant to evangelist Billy G raham, had been asked to speak at a church retreat in January. Hed missed his engagement the year before because of icyr oads, so he was deter mined to make it this time. A few days before his speech, however he was t old one kidney had a visi tor. Well, time passed, but the stone didnt. While Rick lay in bed, writhing in pain, tr ying to decide what to do, he got his sign. He glanced up at a bookcase beside his bed, and his eyes landed on thet itle of a book by pastor Max Lucado. In lar g e, bold letters, the book screamed: HE STILL MOVES STONES. It was then Rick knew he had to show up, r egardless. And so he did. Masking his pain with countless sips of water he made a won derful talk, punctuating serious stories about Billy Graham with plenty of self-deprecating humor. Billy would have been proud. Rick and I ar e in good company. Some of the smartest people in the world have suffer ed from kidney stones. If you live in the Southeast which proves youre smart youre living in the Stone Belt, meaning that we Southerners have more than our share of kidney stones. It could be because of the soil, diet, groundwater, the heat and humidity or even pine trees. It might be a combination of those things except pine tr ees. Now let me tell you how to avoid having futur e kidney stones, assuming your gems were birthed from the same kidney: Give that kidney to somebody else. Thats what I did. My right kidney manufactur ed thr ee stones, so I gave it to my sis ter, Elaine. That was 24 years ago on April 4, 1990. She needed a kidney, and I had an extra one, so now wer e both happy Her kid ney has been gravel-free, and it still works as well, if not better than mine. Now I must be honest. This column is not just about kidney stones. Its also about kidney transplants. Theyre much simpler today those transplants, usually done lapr o scopically. You might consider being a living donor And if your state s driver s license allows it, you could sign up to donate your organs upon your death. Which brings me to my nephew, Winn Hudgins, who is undergoing kidney dialysis three days a week while waiting for a transplant. Hes only 49 years old, with many years on this Ear th ahead of him. A kidney for Winn, or for somebody, would be a gr eat gift. Even if it s been stoned.

Box 16766, Fernandina Beach, FL., 32035 E-mail: mparnell@fbnewsleader. com. visit us on-line at fbnewsleader.com I believe that most people have a core set of beliefs that ultimately defines them; a kind of belief compass thats inviolate. This belief compass carves out our character and our i dentity; it helps make us who we are. In the world of politics nothing is so sad, so disappointing as when a candidate or elected official, at any level, violates their core set of beliefs in order to get elected, or re-elected. Its as if being the president, or a member of Congress, or the state legislature or county or c ity commissioner is worth looking the other way when their belief system is challenged, or w orse, modifying it to minimize the political risk. Cities and towns too, I believe, have collective belief systems that define their character and identity; a collective belief compass that makes them a community rather than a series of non-descript, cookie-cutter neighborhoods with quaint sounding names. And when a communitys belief compass is challenged and t hey look the other way or modify their beliefs, well, that too is sad and disappointing. Given the trends within our community, well, Im worried that were looking the other way, consider: In the mid-1980s the community was concerned about the effects of outdoor entertainment on surrounding neighborhoods. Consequently, the city commission passed an outdoor entertainment ordinance aimed at m inimizing those effects and for years people respected their neighbors and the ordinance worked. Then, not long ago amplified entertainment became the rule at some local establishments so the commission had to modify t he noise ordinance to eliminate amplification. T he trend: from quiet enjoyment of property, t o loud music disrupting that enjoyment, to amplification, to, well, non-enforcement of the noise or d inance; were looking the other way. Note: as I write this, amplified music from a restaurant two b locks away is clearly being heard by myself and anyone, I believe, within a radius of several blocks. The high pitched twanging of an electric guitar is making my dog run for cover and the singing, every word distinct, makes me want to join my dog. Just s aying. In the early 2000s resid ential property owners at the beach were concerned that resort rentals not permitted in residential zoning were undermining their quiet enjoyment of property and asked the commission to do something about it. That something was to pass an ordinance prohibiting new resort rentals in R-1 (single-family ( single-family/duplex) residential zones within the beach overlay. The trend from quiet enjoyment of property and a few resort rentals, to a bunch of resort rentals and lots of cars, lots of people and not so much quiet enjoyment of property, to the passage of a resort rental ordinance to, well, lets just say theres not a lot of concern regarding the ordinance. The Shrimp Festivals of 1977 and 1978 were infamous for their raucousness, and thats the nicest appropriate word I can think of. Conversation within the community hinted at closing down the festival, if the raucousn ess continued, so the commission as comm issions are want to do passed an ordinance b anning the consumption of alcohol on city streets Ordinance 557. Family-friendly Shrimp Festivals wer e once again the order of the day and all was right with the world. The trend from a family-oriented Isle of E ight Flags Festival that signaled the opening of the beach (shrimp boat races were include d), to family-oriented Shrimp Festivals (shrimp boat races were included, but then not included), to not-so-family oriented Shrimp Festivals, to Ordinance 557, to the return of family-oriented Shrimp Festivals, to the commission passing an ordinance that allows the sale and consumption of alcohol at city recrea tion centers, city parks and on city streets, to Shrimp Festivals that set aside a special locat ion for the sale and consumption of alcohol, to a new spring festival held this past weekend at Main Beach Park that featured more than a dozen breweries, live music, an art walk, food trucks and not to be forgotten, an interactive kids zone. I know, I understand were transitioning from a working class, middle-class community to a tourist community and we have to comp ete with other tourist communities for those all important tourist dollars. But the boomtowners have to understand this: our communitys identity, our character, our belief compass was put together during those working class, middle-class years and those of us who still adhere to all of the accompanying tenets believe that every time a neighbors quiet enjoyment of property is interfered w ith, every time we ignore an ordinance meant to make our city better and every time we look the other way in the name of financial gain, every time we do these things we sacrifice a little bit of ourselves to what some people c all prosperity. F or myself, a product of that working class, m iddle-class community, I hope that I never allow myself to look the other way. R on Sapp is a former city commissioner.

Park Service staff are curr ently working on the prospect us for the job, that is, develop i ng the criteria for bids. The prospectus will be released 60 to 120 days prior to Aug. 16 and posted online at fedbizops.gov Ferry access to Cumberland needs to be exclusively through St. Marys, Mayor JohnM orrissey said last week at a c ouncil meeting. Florida is very interested being able to have a second point of access to Cumberland Island, Mor rissey said. ... The bid for the ferry service will happen this year and it does look like there will be compe-t ition for that this year and that c ompetition will be from F lorida. Though adding another depar t ur e point could be con sider ed, Morrissey said that St. Marys leaders are not in favor of that possibility Mor rissey has been working with the staffs of Georgias two U.S. senators, Johnny Isakson andS axby Chambliss, and this regions U.S. representative, Jack Kingston, on the matter Clearly, St. Marys will be on the aggressive side to make sure that we maintain our exclus ivity on this project, Morriss ey said. It is key to the health o f downtown and its not lost to anybody City leaders ar e adamant about defending St. Mar ys as the islands access point, Morrissey said, noting he has met with regional park service lead-e rs and would speak about the i ssues to Geor gias elected repr esentatives and National Park Service staff during the Washington, D.C., fly-in this week. e ar e paying attention to this every day, Morrissey said. ... W e have some ar r o ws in our quiver M orrissey did meet this m onth with the Friends of the A melia Island Trail that want to ensure the East Coast Gr e enway for bicyclists is linked between Fer nandina Beach and St. Marys. e will see if we can help the folks in Florida be able to get cyclists from St. Marys over to Florida, Morrissey said. Imc onfident theres a way to do that without creating a second access to Cumberland Island. Remember water restrictions With warmer weather and springtime planting under way, it is important to remember t hat water conservation is one o f the most impor tant strateg ies to help meet Floridas water supply needs now and in the futur e Watering restrictions are in place throughout the year within the St. Johns River Water Management Districts 18-coun-t y region to ensure the efficient u se of water for lawn and land s cape irrigation.

With summer just around t he corner it is important to remember some safety tips a bout swimming and boating a ctivities. Make sur e you r emain safe and have an enjoyable time outdoors. And always r e member, most accidents are preventable, said Sheriff Bill Leeper. Boaters: Check your boat for all r equired safety equipment. Consider the size of y our boat, the number of passengers and the amount of extra equipment that will be onboar d. Dont overload the boat! If you will be in a power boat, check your electrical sys-t em and fuel system for gas f umes. Follow manufacturers suggested procedures before starting up the engine. W ear your life jacket dont just carry one on board. Leave your alcohol behind. Work to increase your safety,n ot increase your risks! Check the weather forec ast. File a float plan with a member of your family or friend. Swimmers: Never rely on toys such as inner tubes and water wings t o stay afloat. Don t take chances, by o ver estimating your swimming skills. Swim only in designated swimming areas. Never swim alone. Divers: Never dive into lakes and r ivers the results can be tragi c. Every year, diving accidents result in people suffering paralyzing spinal cor d injuries. All too often, hidden dan gers lurk beneath the surface of the water, including rock outcrops or shallow water. P arents: Each year about 200 chil d ren drown and several thousand others are treated in hospitals for submersion accidents, accidents which leave childr en with permanent brain damage and r espirator y health pr o b lems. Remember, it only takes a f ew seconds for a small child to w ander away. Children have a natural curiosity and attraction to water Drinkers: Its a fact; alcohol and water do not mix! Unfortunately, m any people ignore this and each year about 3,000 of them a re wrong dead wrong! More t han half of all the people that d rown had consumed alcohol prior to their accident. Being intoxicated is not necessary for alcohol to be a threat to your safety. Just one beer will impair your balance, vision, judgment and reaction t ime, thus making you a potent ial danger to yourself and oth e rs. Research shows that four hours of boating, exposur e to noise, vibration, sun, glar e and wind produces fatigue that makes you act as if you were legally intoxicated. If y ou combine alcohol consumpt ion with this boating fatigue c ondition, it intensifies the effects and increases your accident risk. Summer should be a prime time for outdoor recreation, Leeper said. Ther e isn t a bet ter place to enjoy water activities t han at the pristine beaches and w aterways that exist in Nassau C ounty. By reminding our friends and neighbors of these helpful safety tips, we wish ever yone a happy and safe summer Nassau County Clerk and Comptroller John A. Crawford warned citizens that a scam t hat began in South Florida h as now r eached Nassau C ounty. These scams involve fraudulent callers, posing as Clerk s Office employees, attempting to collect fines fr om potential jurors for missing jury duty, and requesting personal infor-m ation after falsely claiming t hat an ar r est warrant has b een issued. Crawford states that anyone who may be needed for jur y ser v ice will never receive an unsolicited call from the Clerks Office about jury duty, nor will anyone ask for a jurors Social Security numb er. If you ever experience a c all of this nature, hang up and call my office or the Nassau County Sherif f s Office immediately, said Crawford. Do not give your personal infor mation to anyone you dont know P rospective jurors receive a summons by mail that con t ains information that citizens have already provided to the Florida Depar t ment of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.

12A W EDNESDAY A PRIL 2, 2014 NEWS News-Leader CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK F un t im e f or J uni or Engineers ALAN DONALDSON F or the N e ws-Leader Further enhancing the Boys & Girls Club s after -school expe r ience of club members, the Rober t s Learning & Achievement Center in Fernandina Beach has initiated a program called Junior Engineers. The pr ogram is pr esented in an hour and a half session once each week for eight weeks. It is aimed at kids in thir d to s ixth grades, who must sign up for it, and seeks to promote skills in math, problem solving, wor d r elationships and com puter programming plus it includes fun-filled Lego Robot building. Adult volunteers ar e assigned to guide each Junior Engineer as the course unfolds. An integral part of the course is the MIT-developed computer game called Lur e of the Labyrinth. The game employs car toon figur es that pose pr oblems that can be solved by clicking on multiple choices and moving items to a correct position on the screen. Scores for each student are recorded as the game progr esses class by class and ar e used as part of the qualification for the awar d of a cer tificate when the course is completed. The Robotics segment of the course involves learning how to assemble a sophisticated robot from parts in a Lego kit. Once the robot is put together, it must be pr ogrammed to per form specific functions, using a computer pr ogram designed for that purpose. In addition, a Jeopardy game based on the Junior Engineers course content is played by students on each class day as the eight weeks progress. Incentives for individual kid s success include award of a Dairy Queen coupon, as well as the cer tifi cate of achievement. Boys & Girls Clubs hopes to expand the Junior Engineers pr ogram to the Miller Fr eedom Club in Yulee and possibly to BGC Summer Camp sessions. That hope depends on success in grant applications for purchase of the expensive Lego Robot kits as well as recruitment of necessary adult volunteers. Par ents who send their kids to Boys & Girls Clubs may wish to encourage them to apply for Junior Engineers. Exposur e to how much fun technology can be is sur ely a step on the youngsters road to future career achievement.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK SKA era ends; drum runningLike many avid saltwater fishermen, r umors of a new saltwater tournament trail back in 1991 was great news for those anglers who wished to compete and share their experiences with fellow fishermen. John Jones of St. Simons Island, Ga., Jim Armstrong of Macon, Ga., and Jack Holmes, presently living in Fort Lauderdale, were the founding fathers of the new competitive kingfish tournament trail, properly named the Southern Kingfish Association. Competitive kingfish tournaments were held from coastal kingfish ports from North Carolina to Texas. The Greater Jacksonville Kingfish T ournament was a big draw for kingfish teams and, back in the heyday, drew 1,000 kingfish teams. Kingfish teams could compete in their division or go out on the road and compete on the national SKA tournament trail. The SKA Northeast Florida tournament trail was labeled Division V, which included kingfish tournaments from St. Augustine to our homeport of Fernandina Beach. At the end of the kingfish season, qualifying teams competed in a SKA National Championship, held typically in the fall and at a key kingfish destination. Unfortunately through the years, a failing economy r esulted in less sponsorship monies for highly successful kingfish teams and, more importantly, monies to help fund the SKA tournament trail. "We are closing the doors," SKA managing partner Jack Holmes said recently during a telephone call. "Lack of fishing teams and sponsor monies is the culprit. The SKA simply cannot run without funds. We have worked hard to keep the kingfish tournament trail running; unfortunately we are forced to close our doors here at the SKA." Local kingfish angler Kenny Crawford and Team "Crawfish" competed on the SKA tournament kingfish trail from the beginning, winning 12 events and some $600,000 in cash and prizes. "We are really going to miss the SKA tournament trail," Crawford said. "It was something that we geared up for during the offseason and enjoyed participating during the summer tournament season. I understand why the SKA is closing its doors; too many fishing r estrictions by NOAA and a failing economy are the culprits." Rumors are now spreading that key marine-related sponsors may fund the Southern Kingfish Association to keep it running. These are still r umors but let's keep our fingers crossed. Saltwater fishermen need a tournament trail to have the opportunity to meet other fishing teams, communicate with marine-related companies and help increase team's fishing skills. Currently there is a group forming a series of kingfish tournaments, including the St. Augustine, Jacksonville and Fernandina Beach tournaments. "We need to keep the interest up in competitive king mackerel fishing here at the First Coast," Nassau Sport Fishing Association Director Dave Smith said. "The kingfish competition during our annual Fernandina Beach Kingfish Tournament & Rodeo is critical in making our tournament a success." NSFA President John Hartrich, Dave Smith and Karl Mrozek are communicating with St. Augustine and Jacksonville kingfish tournament organizations in the hopes of keeping a First Coast kingfish tournament trail intact. Paul Dozier and with Strike Zone are still heading up the annual Northeast Florida Kingfish Shootout. For information go to www.kingfishshootout.com. Personally it has been hard for me to digest as I wrote the book King Mackerel for the SKA and was a feature writer for the Angler magazine since 1991. Also our team, "Amelia Angler," competed on the tournament trail since 1991. Capt. Joe Bruce headed up one of the first SKA kingfish teams and went on to capture SKA Angler of the Year honOUTDOORSTerry Lacoss OUTDOORS2BWEDNESDAY, APRIL2, 2014 SPORTS News-Leader SPECIAL PHOTOSEd O'Neill, above, front left, is pictured with a 70-pound black drum he caught aboard the charter fishing boat "Wahoo."

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK P AGE 4B W EDNESDAY A PRIL 2, 2014 N EWS -L EADER / F ERNANDINA B EACH FL Wanderlust sets in again C ome spring, I start t o think about travel. Wanderlust sets in.T he term originates from German words wandern (to hike) and lust (to desire). For me it is that growing and overwhelming need to have a trip in the works. Its time to think a bout packing my bag and setting out on an adventure.M y partner in crime, or should I say travel, my sister, feels the same irresistible tug. So where will the intrepid travelers venture on their annual spring trip? F irst, lets review our criteria. We both like to walk or hike. We like to go places we have not gone before. We like hot water and cold wine a t the end of the day. B eautiful scenery and intere sting history are important. English speaking is preferred but not required. As we age, we are a little more sensitive to the length of hiking days. NO camping ever. My sister is a map collect or and trip planner extraord inaire. She has coordinated o ur adventures to England, Africa, Egypt, the Canadian Rockies, South America, Italy the Czech Republic and, last year, Croatia. Each trip has been unique. We struggled a bit plann ing this years trip. I continu e to lobby for Spain, but s he r e sists. We flirted with a return to Africa, but have settled on exploring Sicily How could we r esist when one of the guidebooks offered the following description: Eternal meeting point between East andW est, Africa and Eur ope, the g orgeous island of Sicily is a linchpin of Mediterranean cultur e and one of Eur o pe s most alluring destinations. As usual my par tner in l ife, the Big Guy, will make his favorite trip that is to the airport to drop me o ff. My daily report b ack home will allow him to armchair travel. We have signed up f or a 10-day hike e xploring Sicily. We have made many trips with Wilderness Travel, an adventure travel company o ut of Berkeley, Calif. We h ave found they do a great j ob of planning wonderful, history-filled, scenic and p hysically challenging days and, always, hot water and cold wine at the end of the day. We have added a few days before and after to dos ome additional exploring. With a 3,000-year-old histor y, a Mediterranean location and rich culture we are p romised an amazing experience. The trip will include a hike on Mt. Etna, Europes highest active volcano. W e have been assur ed that we w ill be transported to the top a nd our scheduled hike will b e downhill, not up! So once again the intrepid sisters will set for t h for their next adventure. First course, the unexpected gift of travel with all its surprises both good and, yes, some t imes bad. Second course, t he food, drink and br eath t aking scenery that Sicily will offer. Dessert is coming home to those and all that we love and treasure. And, of course, savoring our memories and photos. dickie .anderson@gmail.com FROM T HE PORCH Dickie A nderson C ROSSWORD /S UDOKU P EOPLE & P LACES P ETS SUBMITTED Sisters Betsy Smith and Dickie Anderson. 1 1 2 2 5 5 y y e e a a r r s s The Nassau County Commission approved a resolution celebrating the 125th anniversary of the Florida Public Health, cr e ated in 1889 after a yellow fever epi demic.

Jan and Ina Zevenblooms children came aboard the Joma, a general cargo shipt hat car r ied automobiles and f ood to Nassau, and r eturned with rum and winter vegetables, when they each turned three months old. For seven years the chil dr en, Stephen and Ingrid, played among the hatches and found rope ladders to climb, making up for the sand boxes and monkey bars left to the children who lived on land. Ina and her husband always dr eamed of owning a home and growing flowers, and their dream came true many years ago when they fell in love with a piece of property in Black Hammock. The spacious decks ar ound their home offer perfect conditions for ficus tr ees and hanging pots of cascading cactus. Garden hoses wrap around the porches to adequately water the variegated schefflera and large split leaf philodendrons. Gr eenhouses pr otect the del icate plants in the winter while per mitting an ample flow of air and sunlight for optimum growth. Outside youll find lines supporting the oversized staghorn ferns and pots of transplanted citrus trees. The lush space that embraces the Zevenblooms home is now filled with tropical landscaping as it once was surrounded by the Caribbean Sea. Meet the Zevenblooms and check out the lovely plants they bring each week; or intr oduce yourself to any of the nearly 40 vendors who have become family at the friendly farmers market located on North Seventh Street, open from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. ever y Satur day rain or shine.
