T he nonprofit behavioral health agency in Yulee has begun training local residents to improve mental health literacy by helping them identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness. The National Council certified two staff members at S tarting Point Behavioral Health to provide the Mental Health First Aid program through an instructor certification course. Carrie Anderson Mays and Katrina Robinson Wheeler conducted the first training in March for Starting Points Board of D irectors. They are scheduling additional training for first responders, law enforcement officers, educators, health care workers and other memb ers of the public who are i nterested in the training. e are very excited to b ring Mental Health First Aid to our community, said Laureen Pagel, Ph.D, CEO of Starting Point. This important educational effort goes a lot further than emergency intervention; it really h elps people understand the s hr oud of fear and misjudgm ent facing individuals and families who experience mental illnesses and addiction. It will help overcome the associated stigma and move more and more peoplet oward recovery P agel noted that, like First A id or CPR training, the Mental Health First Aid program teaches individuals skills they can use to assist someone in a crisis and know how to direct them to professional intervention or care. M ental Health First Aid i s an eight-hour training cer t ification course that teach es participants a five-step action plan to assess a situation, select and implement interventions and secure appropriate care for the individual. The certification pro-g ram introduces participants t o risk factors and war ning s igns of mental health problems, builds understanding of their impact and over v iews common treatments. Thor ough evaluations in randomized controlled trials and a quantitative study have pr oved the CPR-like pr ogram e f fective in impr oving traine es knowledge of mental diso rders, reducing stigma and increasing the amount of help provided to others. e welcome Starting Points involvement and enthusiasm in the Mental Health First Aid communit y , says Linda Rosenber g, M SW, president and CEO of the National Council for Behavioral Health, the organization that brought Mental Health First Aid to the United States in 2008. We know they will have a great impact on the mental health communities throughout Nassau County and the First Coast, and will be key players in improving mental health literacy nationwide. In its pilot year the pr ogram was intr oduced in nearly 20 states and more than 40 communities nationwide. Star ting Point, and all the sites across the nation that replicate this program, maintains strict fidelity to the orig inal, proven program. Mental Health First Aid originated in 2001 in Australia under the direction of founders Betty Kitchener and Tony Jor m. To date, it has been replicated in 20 other countries world wide.

University of Florida G AINESVILLE You may h ave only had one glass of wine with dinner, but if youre 55 or older, that single serving may hit you hard enough to m ake you a dangerous driver. S o, baby boomers, what y ou suspected is true: you c ant party like you used to. S ara Jo Nixon, a professor i n the departments of psychiatry and psychology at the University of Florida and doctoral candidate Alfredo Sklar tested how drinking legally non-intoxicating levels of alcohol af fect the driving skills o f two age groups: 36 people a ges 25 to 35 and 36 people a ges 55 to 70. They found that although neither age group imbibed enough alcohol to put them over the legal driving limit, a blood alcohol level of 0.08, just one drink can af fect the driving abilities of older d rivers. B ased on the study findi ngs published in the journal Psychopharmacology in Febr uar y the researchers say it could be time to r eassess legal blood alcohol levels for all drivers. These simulations have b een used a lot in looking at o lder adults, and they have b een used at looking how alcohol affects the driving of younger adults, but no one s ever looked at the combination of aging drivers and alcohol, Sklar said. The study is the latest in a body of work by Nixon and her team that looks at how even moderate doses of alcohol affect aging adults. A t the beginning of the study, both groups completed a driving task completely sober. The task took the drive rs down a simulated winding 3-mile stretch of country road. The drivers stared straight ahead at a large computer monitor. Two computer mon-i tors flanked the first, mimi cking the side windows of a c ar and what the drivers would see in their peripheral vision. A ster e o system played driving sounds. A console included a steering wheel and brake and gas pedals. Occasionally, the drivers would encounter ano ncoming car, but they did not e ncounter other distractions. There wasnt even a cow said Nixon, who also is co-vice chair and chief of the division of addiction r esear c h in the department of psychiatry in the UF College of Medicine and UFs Evelyn F. andW illiam L. McKnight Brain I nstitute. R esearchers assessed the drivers ability to stay in the center of their lane and main tain a constant speed. They also looked at how rapidly they adjusted their steering wheel. On a later day, the groups wer e fur ther separated into g roups. The first imbibed a placebo a diet lemon-lime soda misted with a negligible amount of alcohol to mimic the experience of drinking alcohol. A second groups drink was strong enough top roduce a 0.04 percent breath alcohol level, and a third g roups drink gave them a breath alcohol level of 0.065 p ercent still below the federal legal level for drinking of 0.08. Participants then completed the same driving task theyp erformed when they were s ober Resear chers timed the t ask so participants alcohol levels were declining to mimic a situation in which individuals have a drink with dinner and then drive home. In younger adults, the researchers found alcohol con-s umption did not affect their m easur ed driving skills at all a finding that Nixon called a bit surprising. She warned that the absence of ef f ects in this laborator y setting does not mean that young adult drivers driving wouldnt be affected in normal circum-s tances, driving in a typical, r eal-world setting. She noted t hat the laboratory setting was simplified compared with realworld driving and that the cur r ent data dont address potential problems in more complex settings. But for the older drivers, the small, legal levels of intox i cation did affect their driving. The researchers are evaluating additional study results. Participants also drove a course through a small-town setting as well as a city setting, complete with pedestri-a ns, motorists who violated traffic signs and other chall enges. Sklar and others in the laboratory will examine brain e lectrophysiological data collected through scalp electrodes embedded in caps that the subjects were wearing during the drive to study how theb rain responds during the drivi ng test when dosed with alco h ol. Jerry. The traffic is going to be a nightmare. The road to our neighborhood is narrow and its a lready a log jam with school buses. D onald Murphy, who said he lives on Sonoma Drive, said he was concerned about the zoning change to high density residential. Is there any future plan to limit the number of units? said M urphy. Murphy asked this question b ecause the project called for an increase in density requirements. The board approved highlevel density, a change from lowlevel density, for an 8-acre parcel north of Woodbridge Parkway. This mean houses my b e closer together and closer to the roads. U nder the increase, developers could have built townhouses or multi-unit apartments that would have brought more people to the neighborhood. But theyve decided to build single-family homes. oure far better off having single-family houses behind you, s aid board member Bruce Jasinsky, who is also a local real estate broker. No one wants development when youve had trees. After the board rezoned the 8a cred parcel, it agreed to comb ine that parcel with a larger sect ion of the development on the south side of the roadway to create the W o odbrier community (PUD Local residents were also told that the development first received approval in 2006. But a s luggish economy halted develo pment. So, showing up at the m eeting was not going to reverse course. Still, the gr o up appeared to appreciate the opportunity to hear the development plans firsthand. Thank you for that, said Murphy. Local attorney Mike Mullin and local engineer Nike Gillette, w ho are frequently hired by developers to shuttle projectst hrough the county approval process for new development, were on the job for Synovus. The two fielded questions regarding drainage (existing sites will be expanded); water supply (JEA will supply w ildlife studies (one was done and it concluded that no animalsi n the PUD are endangered). This plan is complicated and hard to understand, said Mullin, who is also the former Nassau County attorney. Board member Scott Murray asked about tree protection in t he development, and was told by Growth Management Direc-t or Peter King that there wasnt any. This development isnt on the island. Theres tree protection there, but not in the rest of the county, said King. Board member Sharyl Wood, w ho also works for the Nassau County School District, said thel ocal schools could accommodate the estimated 50 additional students officials expect to enroll in local schools once the development is complete. The Woodbrier plan also calls for approximately three acres of p arks throughout the community, and the public will have access. Growth management officials have also suggested a site plan t hat calls for positioning homes c loser to the roadway in an effort t o expand the size of backyards. Setback requirements are 10 feet, while setbacks in the neighboring Woodbridge subdivision are 15 feet. This represents a spirit to design a community rather than m ake spaces for more homes, s aid King. mmaguire@fbnewsleader.com CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 3A W EDNESDAY A PRIL 9, 2014 NEWS News-Leader Irene Morrow b elieves a new 110-house subd ivision planned near her home i n Nassauville will disturb wildlife, destroy trees and overcrowd the neighb orhood.

MARY MAGUIRE News-Leader C ounty officials are planning to launch a series ofv ideos this summer through the county website about the benefits of living, working and visiting Nassau County. Six one-minute vignettes to be known as a video tour book will focus on a range of local a ssets, from beaches and businesses to schools and youtha thletics. There also will be information on local history, quality of life and charitable organizations. The goal is to connect website visitors with a visual county experience in an effort to c onvince them to relocate to the community or schedule ab each vacation. This is an exciting opportunity, said Assistant County Manager Shanea Jones. I n a phone interview last w eek, Jones said the videos are expected to be posted online this summer thr o ugh the county commissions website at www.nassaucountyfl.com. Jones is coordinating site visits now and outlining a script w ith county Project Specialist S abrina Robertson. Weve got some ideas, from a visit to Fort Clinch to a tour inside a local school, said Jones. Were definitely going to show the beach, some business activity and were planning to schedule time at 4-Hp rograms. J ones said the spotlight s hould focus on ar e as that ar e funded by local taxpayers, such as schools and economic devel opment. e think thats important, said Jones. Were going to be busy. A three-day video shoot ar ound the community is sched uled for April 30 to May 2. This is the same weekend as Shrimp Festival, the lar g est special event held in the coun ty each year. And Jones said the timing is not a coincidence. e specifically scheduled for Shrimp Fest because of thec rowds that will be in town and at the beach, said Jones. Well h ave plenty of people having a good time and thats what we want to show The videos will be produced at no cost to the county. H ow? A marketing company base d in Rochester, N.Y., is handling production in exchange f or advertising sales and collecting revenue. The company is selling advertisements to local companies that will be placed a round the video. The ads fund production, s aid Jones. Nassau County does not have any part in a dvertising. Jones said the county board signed off on the agreement at the Jan. 15 meeting. e have no part in ad sales, said Jones. And we are not displaying ads on the count y website. Jones said the video will link to the CGI Communicat ions website where they will p lay on the companys server. J ones said the county was first offered this promotional i dea in 2011 through its membership in the Florida Association of Counties. Of course, a video only does any good if people watchi t. And according to the countys Director of Information T echnology Guy Riner, the countys website has a signific ant amount of traffic. In 2013, the total number of visitors to the site was 245,218. The average number of monthly visitors was 20,435, while the number of uniquev isitors averaged 9,927. B oth Nassau County Econ omic Development Director Steve Rieck and Tourist Development Council Director Gil Langley say that video can be an effective marketing tool. Its another arrow in our quiver , said Rieck in an email l ast week. L angley points out, also in a n email last week, that video is rapidly taking over web communications. Having a video pr esence is good for anyone with a web presence, said Langley. mmaguir e@f bne w sleader .com A $25,000 investment by Ralph Wilson into the Buffalo Bills in 1959 has grown into a lot of dollar bills today. As in $870 million. That was the value (according to Forbes) of the NFL franchise at the death of the longtime B ills owner several weeks ago. While that represents big b ucks for the Bills, the moribund Buffalo team is one of the lowest valued franchises in the league. And before you run out and try to buy an NFL team (any bidders for the J aguars?), lets look closer at the $869,975,000 of appreciat ion that Wilson and now his heirs have realized. While it is substantial averaging a 20 percent return over the 55 years it is not what it appears. Thats because there are invisible forces at work such as inflation, compounding i nterest and the law of large numbers. Well look at eacho n individually. W hile $25,000 seems like a pittance today, it was a lot of money in 1959. To equate it to other prices at that time, a typical Ford car c ost $3,000, a gallon of gas was 25 cents and a postage stamp tallied four cents. T he growth in prices of these essentials is known as i nflation. This steady rise in prices is here to stay. While annual inflation has historically been around 3 percent in the U.S., it eats away at returns you receive on an investment. This is particularly true right now with the low interest rates availa ble on some investment or bank products (and lets notf orget the impact of taxes). T o combat inflation, however, compounding interest is your ally. With compounding interest, you earn interest on t he interest as well as on the principal. T his effect quietly contributes to the growth of an i nvestment. And this is especially true as the investment accumulates and becomes larger in value. The law of large numbers g oes like this: a 10 percent return on $10,000 is $1,000; a 1 0 percent return on $1 million is $100,000. Same perc entage of return; much different result. So as Wilsons ownership stake in the Bills soared in value, he benefited from compounding interest and from large numbers, easily outpacing inflation. And granted, Wilson took a chance with his foray into the American Football League, or AFL. He was one o f the pioneering owners in that league who took a leap of f aith that the league would become what it is today after a subsequent merger with the longtime football NFL. Its easy as an armchair quarterback to say that anyone would invest $25,000 into a n opportunity that could provide such impressive returns. A nd place you on a pedestal as an owner of an NFL franc hise. However, there were no guarantees. And the paltry outlay of money verifies a lack of stature of the fledgling AFL at that time. Indeed, a franchise in frozen Buffalo would demand even less of a purchase price than a team in a warmer or major market. The Bills have some dist inction, at least to football fans in North Florida. The B ills rank 30th in terms of value among the 32 teams in t he NFL. In last place are the Oakland Raiders. But coming in at the 31st lowest valuation: the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags are worth $840 m illion, while the team with the highest value is the Dallas C owboys at $2.3 billion. Now t hats a lot of bills, as in doll ars not Buffalo.

About a year ago I wrote a column, The Sky is Green, in which I discussed a strate-gy used by some union leaders in negotiating with compan ies. The leader I knew best who used this strategy was Charley La Motta, a Teamsters head in the brewing industry. Charlie drove many of the older company labor negotiators crazy by acting totally illogicaly in his drive to win arguments and c hanges in working conditions which created jobs for his members. In return, these company n egotiators treated Charlie with disdain. I was a young negotiator back then and my boss had a different view of t he situation. He encouraged me to build a relationship (nota friendship) with Charlie. Charlie responded in kind and enjoyed schooling me. He p ointed out that most mana gement types prided thems elves on being logical thinkers and became frustrated when he acted out of con trol and was illogical. Rather than respond to their carefully thought out pr esentations with facts of his own, Charliew ould get into what he called h is The Sky is Green, The S ky is Green approach. After a while the management just gave up tr y ing to reason with him and in some cases, to avoid work stoppages, offered him mor e than he actually w anted. I t appears some Western l eaders look at Putin in the same vein. They state that his arguments are unreasonable and illogical. Leaders includ ing President Obama try reasoning with him and his people but it s obvious they ar e m aking no headway as he d efends all of his actions util izing a Sky is Gr e en approach. Our frustrated leaders have resorted to threats/sanctions and kicking Russia out of the G-8 which may or may not make sense. Cer tainly Putin, who is mor e l ogical than he appears, quite shrewd and quite duplicitous, thought about the consequences of his actions before he moved forward. So is there a solution? Obviously not for Crimea, but in the long run Crimea is s mall potatoes. As companies discovered, with power hung ry union officials there are few short-term solutions. The Charlie La Mottas of the world are focused on winning battles to impress their members and while they want companies to stay i n business they are most interested in their power, p opularity and the growth of their membership. Growing members means more dues and in some cases this is more important than increasing wages. Trying to punish or belittle him only m ade him more resentful and spiteful. Mitt Romney recently p ointed out while Putin is not o ur friend, he is our advers ary rather than our enemy. T he difference is important. A dversaries have opposing i nterests while enemies want to destroy us. My sense is Romney is right. Ther e fore, regardless of how we feel, it is important to retain a relationship and to do that, you have to treat him with respect. My e xperience with people like P utin is you also have to be v ery predictable. They have to know where the boundary lines ar e and when no is no. If you arent clear they tend to make mistakes in judgment that can lead toc atastrophe. What we have to r emember is that Putin may w in the small skir m ishes but what really counts is the final score. Y ou beat adversaries by making them ir r elevant. One way is to eliminate them and the second is to get them outo f your life. With the T eamsters and other unions, t he way to eliminate them was to decertify them through an NLRB election. However, this can be ver y expensive. In Clinton, Iowa, after five strikes in 10 years, we locked the union out. We ultimately won the decertification vote but the standoff and violence probably cost the company close to $100 million. I came to believe it was usually more prudent to take your time and move your plant to a place w here the particular union leader couldnt follow. Our b est example was a San Francisco Planters Peanut plant that we moved to Ft. Smith, Ark. We ended up with a non-union facility and got rid of a troublesome union leadership we could never w ork with regardless of how hard we tried. S o how does this apply to Mr. Putin? Mr. Putins hero is Peter the Great and his vision is obviously to recreate the Russian empire of the s. He does not appear to be a madman like Hitler or S addam Hussein, as when our interests concur we can work with him. He is more like a T eamsters leader, and punishi ng, demeaning and cutting o ff relations with him will p robably just make him more s piteful. The better solution is t o deal with him, but do so as our adversary. Russia s main product is energy. Our government and the Europeans have to do everything they can so that Russian energy is no longer i mportant or necessary. That m eans we have to stay f ocused and pull together with Europe and, as with the T eamsters, make Putin and his energy irrelevant. If we are successful, this is a message Mr. Putin and, in thel ong run, the Russian people w ill understand.

Drew has urged local residents not to p urchase a two-year drivers license tag renewal until afterf ees drop on Sept. 1. The Florida Legislature a pproved a reduction in vehicle registration renewal fees. I want to applaud Gov. Rick Scott, Senate President Don Gaetz and Speaker of the House Will Weatherford for honoring the Legislatures c ommitment to the citizens of Florida. The governor has signed legislation that will save Florida motorists $395 million in vehicle renewal fees, based o n an average savings of $25 per registration, Drew said. I am strongly urging people not to purchase a two year r enewal until the fee is reduced on Sept. 1st, 2014, he said in a press release. Registration fees in 2009 were raised out of the necessity to balance the state budget, a Constitutional requirem ent. Drew said, I have seldom seen government reduce a tax once it is established, but that has just happened. This fee reduction a ppropriately leaves more money in the wallets of theh ard working citizens to help pay their monthly expenses. I f irmly believe that the local savings will work their way back into Nassau Countys economy For questions on the renewal process, visit one of the four county office locat ions, call 491-7400 or go online to www.nassautaxes.com. State driver license fees will be reduced Sept. 1 DRUG DETAIL SUBMITTED Nassau County Sheriffs deputies conducted a drug/traffic enforcement detail on US 17 at the Duval County line, US 1 at the county line and US 1 at the Geor gia state line April 2-4 to stem the flow of illegal drugs coming into Nassau County. A total of 2 9 arrests were made on charges of possession of illegal drugs, driving while l icense suspended or outstanding warrants. Drugs seized were 23.8 grams of marij uana, 8.1 grams of crack cocaine, 2 grams of cocaine and 46 prescription pills.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 7A W EDNESDAY A PRIL 9, 2014 OPINION News-Leader VOICE OF THE PEOPLE M M u u s s i i c c a a n n d d C C r r a a f f t t B B e e e e r r F F e e s s t t i i v v a a l l While its great that people in the community catch a bunch of fish and play a lot of golf, it s also wonder ful when an event like last week s festival pr ovides the area with entertainment and activities the likes of what the community has ever had. The sad part is that not one word or picture was ever mentioned in this newspaper. Coverage of something of this magnitude should be made a priority. It gives the good people of our city and the sur r ounding ar ea a pleasant change to what they ar e nor mally exposed to. All of the proceeds fr om the festival went to the 8 Flags Playscapes project to build a handicap accessible playgr ound. How wonder ful it would have been if the local newspaper gave some consideration not only to the festival but to the pr oject it was held for. Guy Robertson Fernandina Beach P P o o v v e e r r t t y y During my 67 years on Ear th I have looked in various arenas where social activity occurs. I have seen nation tur n against nation, neighbor against neighbor and wife against husband. I have cried tears for the victims of those driven by pr oblematic attitudes. Not surprisingly I have seen empty cupboards, discarded belongings and other evidence of pover ty Let me ask: Do you think it s right for a rich man to acquire 10 houses while a poor man has only a car dboard box? Please do not blame the victims. Our economic system allows greedy profiteers to charge 30, 40 even 50 times the minimum wage for an equal amount of labor instead of a mor e r ea sonable 3 or 4 or 5. Undoubtedly, this tenfold wealth-pr oducing formula insures that poverty will be perpetuated in America. And not just her e or the Philippines. It is happening all ar ound the Earth in various arenas where social activity occurs. John Grace Fernandina Beach Shrimpfest committee responds I ts just a few short weeks until the 51st Annual Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival. Beginning with the Pirate Parade on Thursday, May 1, and continuing thr o ugh the weekend of May 2, 3, 4, tens of thousands of visitors will once again roam our streets, pirates will invade, fine ar tists and craftsmen will display their works, shrimp boats will line our marina docks and local nonprofit organizations will offer an abundance of culinary delights featuring a variety of seafood including delicious wild caught shrimp. Over the past week much has been made in the local press (Voice of the People, April 4) and social media about the withdrawal of the Shrimp Pr oducers Association as a food vendor at this years Shrimp Festival. Let us start by saying that, while the Shrimp Producers Association is a wonderful organization, the actions and opinions of their chosen representatives to the Shrimp Festival do not reflect the views of all shrimpers, local or other wise. The voluntary withdrawal of this organization is not about local shrimp or local shrimpers, or even about the Shrimp Producers Association itself. It is about two individuals who, while act ing as representatives of that organization, became angry and stormed out of a meeting, loudly and enthusiastically announcing their withdrawal and vowing to do everything in their power to destr oy the Shrimp Festival. This action was taken solely because they could not dictate the exact placement of their food booth, immediately and without any discussion whatsoever with total disregard for the opinions, rights and feelings of the other equally d eserving local nonprofit organizations at the meeting. The media coverage and subsequent social media bashing of the Shrimp Festival and the over 40 local residents who, as unpaid volunteers, organize and execute this award-winning, nationally acclaimed event, is the dir ect result of their efforts to make good on their promise to destroy the festival. Their claims that the Shrimp Festival Committee has not supported their organization, or has in some way treated them unfairly, are totally unfounded. On the contrar y the committee has time and time again overlooked their antagonistic attitude towar d the committee and their fellow nonpr ofit participants, and repeatedly forgiven their flagrant disregard for the rules and regulations set forth for all festival food vendors; rules that are necessary to ensure a safe and productive festival for everyone. At the time that they walked out and withdrew from the festival they wer e, in fact, the only vendor that had not sub mitted the paperwork required to participate in the festival. This paper work, which was due the week prior to this meeting, is critical as it includes their nonpr ofit statement, accountability form and health permit. The claims that their actions are somehow linked to a protest against the use of foreign or farm-raised shrimp are equally unfounded. The committee r equir es all vendors selling shrimp to declare, and conspicuously post at their booth, the origin of the shrimp being ser ved. All but two of the nearly 20 food booths selling shrimp this year have stated that they will be using local or U.S. wild caught shrimp. As a matter of clarific ation, the exclusive use of truly local Northeast Florida shrimp at the festival is not possible due to the timing of the local shrimping season. Ther e is no denying that these two individu als are extremely passionate about the shrimping industry, and that is to be admired. Unfortunately in this case, passion gave way to aggressively negative behavior and the withdrawal of a very fine organization from the festival. We invite everyone to join us in historic downtown Fernandina Beach for a weekend filled with family fun featuring pirates, ar t, antiques, music, a Kids Fun Zone, and lots and lots of shrimp at YOUR local Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival, as always, the first weekend in May!

It is published in full: At the April 1 City Commission meeting, the commission appr oved at first r eading vol untar y annexations for the Gateway at Amelia c ommer cial center, the Hess gas station, S omerset apar tments, the Scott and Sons c ommercial center and the FPU substation along South Eighth Street/A1A/SR 200. T o gether the 13 properties total approximately 24 acres. Annexations require that properties be contiguous to city limits. Because of the r ecent annexation of pr oper ty of f of Bailey Road, these properties are now contiguous (adjacent to the city boundar y). Pr oper ty owners f or these parcels proposed for annexation signed voluntary annexation agreements at the time they r e quested connection to the citys utilities system. These agreements state that the property owners agreed to annex into the city when they became contiguous. The pr oper ty owners have received benefit of the citys utility system since they chose to connect. The city had to r un utility lines to the G ateway commer cial center in par ticular because at the time, there were not city lines in that vicinity. Developers always pay connection costs for any development project, whether in or out of the city limits, at the time of connection. This is so taxpayers and ratepayers do not pay the costs. When properties are annexed into the city, they are required by state law to switch tot he citys future land use and zoning designations. The commercial properties proposed for annexation will have a future land use and zoning of General Commer c ial, which allows the same opportunities as their current Nassau County land use and zoning. The same is true of the Somerset property, which will have a high-density residential land use and zoning. The City intends to work with property owners to ensure that any prior entitlements they may have r eceived in the coun ty will be honored in the city as well. The voluntar y annexation agreements were recorded through the Nassau County Clerk of Courts at the time of their approval. In processing the voluntary annexations, the city has complied with all voluntary annexation requirements found in Florida Statutes Chapter 171 and notice requirements found in the city s Land Development Code. The asso ciated future land use and zoning cases will return to the commission in June after review by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. When future land use changes are over 10 acres, the state must review the proposal. Second reading for the annexations will be heard at the April 15 City Commission meeting.

Box 16766, Fernandina Beach, FL., 32035 E-mail: mparnell@fbnewsleader. com. visit us on-line at fbnewsleader.com Those who know, value and appreciate the wondrous natural heritage of Cumberland Island National Seashore are indebted to Phil Scanlan and his associates for o nce again reminding us how easily this national treasure could be degraded and spoiled and why we must be ever vigilant for schemes to turn this special place into a selfish business opportunity or playground for special interests. Per Scanlan: We want equal access and we want it bike friendly M ost readers are likely unaware that the proposed link to Cumberland is being pushed as part of a grander trail system on the Atlantic coast with far different objectives and purpose. The East Coast Greenway is a commendable project and is being promoted as: linking many of the major cities of t he Eastern Seaboard between Canada and Key West. I fully support the project, however, links to and through remote undeveloped places like Cumberland Island are a significant deviation from the project and its objectives. I fully suspect that some Greenway sponsors and proponents do not support this l ocal diversion onto a national seashore that prioritizes the preservation of our natural heritage via low-impact recreation. Like religious zealots, some c ycling enthusiasts wish to impose t heir values and objectives on e veryone and everyplace, homogenizing our environment into a n etwork of paved and woodland trails and amenities that do not foster any appreciation for our natural heritage or reflect any respect for those with different recreation-a l objectives and values and possessive of a deeper appreciation f or what has been preserved for us by preceding generations and t houghtful land managers. They (may motives, but it is also evident they have no r egar d for Cumberland s car efully crafted mana gement measures to preserve the i sland s natural integrity while a ccommodating volumes and types of visitation that do not degrade ones experience. Ferry and bike trail boosters boast of the terrific business and tourism benefits of their plan and one can easily envision how thei nevitable expansion of such opera tions to meet market demand will s erve the same commercial idol. Many of our most popular national parks are now overburdened with visitors and their impacts and are engaged in efforts to reduce capacities and pr essur es on park resources. Fortunately, the National P ark Service and supporters of C umberland s tr easur ed heritage c onceived and implemented man agement measures to prevent such adverse impacts there. The proposed ferry service and bike trail diversion ar e in dir e ct conflict with those measur es. Perhaps indicative of this latest s chemes potentially adverse impacts to Cumberland and its r esources, we see no mention of the ferry proponents consulting or reaching out to any of the organizations long dedicated to conserving and protecting the seashore for a ll Americans and future generations. I suspect we will soon learnh ow receptive the hosts of organizations invested in the protection a nd conservation of Georgias coast are to this latest development. Ferry boosters will likely discover that a majority of Georgia citizens possess an entirely different r espect and appreciation for their coastal environment in comparisont o their associates and supporters on this side of the river. Some will a ttribute this disparity to selfish business interests affiliated with e xclusive access to Cumberland I sland, but this perspective is unfounded since the overwhelming majority of our neighbors have no such associations and their interest and objectives are more deeply r ooted in the preservation versus exploitation of our natural heritage. A s a native resident of Amelia a nd visitor to Cumberland since c hildhood, I am dismayed by the gold rush mentality of some involved in this effort. I am left to wonder why they do not understand or accept the well-reasoned management philosophy of the National Park Service and why they cannot r estrain their commercial aspirat ions for the gr e ater benefit of C umberland and future generations seeking an unspoiled opportunity to experience the wild island all visitors currently enjoy. Throughout their shared geologic and cultural histories, it was Amelia that became the sacrificiall amb for industry, commerce, develo pment, r esor ts and unr estrained t ourism. Despite this saga, Amelia continues to suf fer endless abuses and exploitation and it becomes harder with each passing year to find peace and tranquility in this islands vanishing natural environment. Any and all efforts to infect Cumberland with the same fatal dis e ase must be r esisted and opposed a t ever y level. The only ferry neede d is a metaphorical one to car r y us beyond the latest threat to a vibrant and unadulterated Cumberland Island. Long may she endur e unfettered by men and their endless schemes. Patrick Lear y F er nandina Beach T he Wilderness Act: For this purpose there is hereb y established a National Wilderness Preservation System to be composed of federally owned areas designated by Congress as wilderness areas, and these shall b e administered for the use and enjoyment of the American people ins uch manner as will leave them unimpaired for future use as wildern ess, and so as to provide for the protection of these areas, the preservation of their wilderness character, and for the gathering and dissemination of information regarding t heir use and enjoyment as wilderness... D efinition of Wilderness: A wilderness, in contrast with t hose areas where man and his own works dominate the landscape, is h ereby recognized as an area where t he Earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain. An area of wilderness is further defined to mean in this Act an ar ea of undeveloped Federal land retaining its primeval character andi nfluence, without permanent i mpr ovements or human habitation, w hich is protected and managed so as to preserve its natural conditions and which (1 have been affected primarily by the forces of nature, with the imprint of man s work substantially unnoticeable; (2tu-n ities for solitude or a primitive and u nconfined type of r e cr eation.... G iven the above, the St. Marys EarthKeepers, Inc. strongly protest any efforts to increase the permissible number of visitors to Cumberland Island National Seashor e. Background: Local cycling e nthusiasts (and others F er nandina Beach ar e attempting t o persuade the National Park Ser vice to divide the contract for ferry service between the existing provider in St. Marys, Ga., and one that would leave fr om the city mari na in Fernandina. (We want equal access and we want it bike friendly said Phil Scanlan of the Friends oft he Amelia Island T rail, Inc.) A new fer r y service would result i n an incr e ase in the number of vis itors to Cumberland Island currently set at 300 per day. It is being pr oposed that an additional two fer ries per day (departing from Fernandina) carry 150 passengers per trip, ef fectively doubling the a llowable number of daily visitors to the Island. Greater numbers of visitors will directly intensify the human impact on the islands already delicate ecosystems, and would contradict the very purpose f or which Cumberland Island was preserved as a national seashore. Furthermore, the concept of making the island, a national wilderness that forbids wheeled vehicles, more bike friendly flies in the face of the very essence and intent of the Wilderness Act. The National Park Services does not have the a vailable resources to monitor the activities of increased visitors in order to ensure that the islands ecosystems are protected at all times. Cyclists who are able to forge new trails and broach the fragile nesting, breeding and foraging habitats of the islands species will, without doubt, disrupt the flora and f auna of Cumberland Island. In closing, we urge local, state and national legislators to deny the above proposal, thereby safeguarding Cumberland Island National Seashore a precious and irreplaceable wilderness for present and future generations. Alex Kearns, Chair S t. Marys EarthKeepers, Inc. The National Park Service recently announced that they will a ccept bids for a new ferry service t o Cumberland Island. Now officials a nd local entrepreneurs are pushing to increase the number of daily visi tors to the island. This service would undoubtedly stimulate the economy in either St. Marys, Ga., Fernandina Beach or both. Yet there are more than just business interestst o be considered. When Cumberland Island was m ade a National Seashore, Congress directed the National Park Service t hat no development of the project or plan for the convenience of visitors shall be undertaken which would be incompatible with the pr eser vation of the unique flora and f auna (section 5beasing the n umber of visitors will also dir ectly i ncrease the human impact on the islands already fragile ecosystems and would contradict the very purpose for which Cumberland Island was preserved as a national seashor e. Fur thermore, the Wilderness A ct indicates that an area is set aside f or wilder ness when it has out s tanding opportunities for solitude (section 2cisitors cherish these increasingly rare opportunities to enjoy solitude in undisturbed wilderness. Instead of looking to Cumberland Island and seeing dol lar signs, we should appreciate what m akes the island so unique: its d iverse ecosystems and the oppor t unities it pr o vides to commune with nature in a land untouched by the impacts of tourism and development.

Arrest indicates suspicion of a crime, not guilt. A nyone with information about criminal activity can contact the Fernandina Beach Police Department at 277-7342 or the Nassau County Sheriffs Office anonymously by calling 225-0147 in Yulee or Fernandina Beach, or 879-2136 in C allahan, Hilliard or Bryceville.

S S t t u u n n g g u u n n u u s s e e d d A Georgia man was arrested in Fernandina Beach March 30 for felony criminal mischief after police subdued him with a stun gun for diso rderly intoxication, according to a police report. During an investigation of a loud disturbance a t a local motel around 2:30 a.m., city police found a man on the second floor walking with a Mason j ar in one hand and a beer in the other, according to a report. Because the man appeared young, an officer asked him how old he was, the report stated. The man responded that he was 15 and began to w alk away. The officer reportedly yelled several times for the man to stop but instead he ran, d ropping the Mason jar on the ground. The officer caught up with the man, identified a s Kyle Austin Hopkins, 29, of Kingsland, Ga., but Hopkins reportedly attempted to run away. At that point the officer deployed his stun gun and H opkins fell to the ground. Hopkins was handcuffed and placed under arrest, during which time police found the probes of the stun gun had c ompletely missed him. Hopkins reportedly had slurred speech and a ppeared to be intoxicated. Police also recovered the Mason jar, which was found to contain m oonshine, according to the report. Hopkins was transferred to the police station and evaluated by fire-rescue personnel, the report states, but his behavior toward them was uncooperative and belligerent. A fter being cleared by fire-rescue, Hopkins was placed in a holding cell, where he reportedl y broke a fire sprinkler, causing the police booking area to flood. Damage was estimated at moret han $1,000. Hopkins constantly bragged about the damage he had caused, according to the report, and continued with his belligerent behavior. The fire department was called to deal with the water d amage. Hopkins was consequently transported to N assau County Jail and charged with disorderly intoxication, possession of moonshine, resisting a rrest without violence and criminal mischief, a felony. Photos were taken of the water damage to the booking area. F F r r a a u u d d u u l l e e n n t t c c h h e e c c k k s s A local woman told police March 28 that an u nknown person had cashed several checks on her Bank of America account totaling $12,450, a ccording to a police report. The woman told police she discovered the fraudulent checks while checking her account i nformation March 27. Copies of the fraudulent checks were provided to police. The woman noted the checks did not l ook like her actual checks and that they showed her past address in Waycross, Ga., according to t he report. One check was dated Feb. 12 and the other was dated March 10. A ccording to the police report, there was no indication as to where the checks were cashed, but one check proved to be a mobile deposit. The woman contacted Bank of America and initiated a fraud report, and the loss of funds was r eplaced, according to the report.

I learned this fact again recently when my g al friend Susan and I traveled to Sanford for ano vernight stay just to see a part of Florida we were both u nfamiliar with. I picked Sanford as our nights destination based solely on the fact that Bill Belleville moved there a fter his country h ome 20 miles north of Orlando was lost to development and he choose to l ive in the middle of a s mall town instead of watching his backyard turn toc oncrete. Bill is a nature w riter and author of great Florida books like River of Lakes: A Journey on Floridas St. Johns River and Losing It All to Sprawl which describes t he sad development that chased him from the countrys ide. Both books are highly r ecommended for those intere sted in Floridas natural history. If Bill liked Sanford it had to be a good place to visit, my instincts told me. And my instincts were right! In the evening the town was bustling with locals and s ome visitors, but not in a lar ming amounts like we h ave in Fernandina some days. An easy stroll from our marina hotel got us right into the middle of town with plenty of restaurants and night spots r ecommended by our smar t phone apps ripAdvisorelp and UrbanSpoon to choosef r o m. But it didn t take us long to find the action Hollerbachs Willow Tree Caf. If you like German food, oompah bands with accordions and xylophones and sin galong drinking with beer mugs upraised, this place is for you! B ut we didn t go to Sanford for the nightlife it was the natural areas surrounding it that drew us there. For one thing, it was still manatee season in nearby Blue Springs, where these p lacid mammals lounge in the c onstant temperature waters t o avoid the winter cold further north. We were lucky on our visit to Blue Springs it was not overfull to capacity with tourists and we were able to get good close-up views of the manatees and the w ater was clear enough to w atch the alligator gars and o ther smaller fish sharing the water with them. Blue Springs we knew about in advance but the r e al surprise of our road trip was just 10 miles away Lyonia Preserve, a 360-acre piece of rare Florida scrubland pro-t ected from development by V olusia County and suppor ted b y a modern education center and nature museum, an amphitheater and lar g e library nearby. All in all, we learned, at least 350 square miles of natural land has been preserved by this county s omething that Nassau C ounty sadly is far from m atching. The most talked about featur e of L y onia Pr eser ve is the population of Florida scr ub jays, a threatened species only found in Florida, and restricted to the last remaining scrub habitat in the state. Lyonia Preserve has a good population of Florida scrub j ays and their protection has e mboldened these inquisitive b irds to approach people without fear. Well, we didnt see any scrub jays on our short hike through the nature trails, but we found something even better we found Stephen K intner, the conservation c hair for West Volusia A udubon Society who was leading a nature tour. With Stephens help we admir e d the Florida har v ester ants with their circular nests on the pathway, well marked by the tiny twigs and other debris they remove from theirn est and circle the area with. W e saw a number of species o f endemic plants plants only found in this scrub habitat in Florida that thrive in this nutrient-poor, silica sand soil. Among these, the Florida rosemary bushes stood out as beautiful individual speci-m ens with new green growth s pur ting at the tips of the ver t ical stalks. Another plant called Garberia attracted us with its or n ate spiraled leaf for mations. Four dif f er e nt species of blueberry plants were also in flower in the area, adding bright splashes of reddish yellow to the scene and paths of grey reindeer moss (a type of lichen m eandered through the s hrubs. T he Florida scrub habitat with its pure white nutrientpoor sandy soil is sometimes called Floridas desert. This area is about as different from the lushly foliated areas of nearby Blue Springs as two p arcels of land can be. But l ike all things in nature, these p laces are connected. Water flowing into sinkholes in Lyonia percolates through the limestone karst substrate beneath the dry sand and ends up flowing out into the manatee habitat on Blue Springs. I f you still have time for a r oad trip befor e the weather h eats up you cant go wrong by visiting the areas around Sanfor d Besides all this nature, theres also the nearby town of Cassadaga, which is inhabited by spiritualists, mediums and new-age divin-e rs of all kinds. Yes, theres s omething for ever yone a round Sanford. If its good enough for Bill Belleville and good enough for Susan and me, it s sur e ly good enough for you!

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK OUTDOORS/ TIDES WEDNESDAY, APRIL9, 2014NEWS-LEADER/ FERNANDINABEACH, FL ORIDA David Hagins weighed in the largest black drum during the 16th annual Nassau Sport Fishing Association Black Drum T ournament. Hagins' big drum weighed 81.94 pounds. John Jones once again demonstrated his black drum fishing skills by taking secondplace honors with an 80pound black drum. Jasmine T ulloh fished with Capt. Benny Hendrix, taking third place with a 79.14-pound black drum. "We had an excellent tournament this year," said Te r esa Whitman of Leaders & Sinkers bait and tackle shop. "We had several more entries this year and, more importantly, the weather and fishing were just outstanding. I can't remember a drum tournament where there were so many black drum caught." "This past Friday evening I fished with Capt. Benny Hendrix aboard his charter fishing boat Heavy Hitter' and we boated some 13 black drum weighing between 2575 pounds," Greg Waters said. "Our fishing party fished just a few hundred yards off the breaking surf at Main Beach. Also included in our fishing party were Tony Peeples, Destiny Smith and Jasmine Tulloh." Night fishing during the spring black drum season often produces the best fishing action. The moon and tidal conditions are critical as well. "I prefer the incoming tide when fishing after dark," Hendrix said. "Also the full or noon moon periods produce the best black drum fishing action when there is more current. When anchoring up just off the beach at the east end of Atlantic Avenue, also called the Main Beach fishing hole, the incoming tide allows our fishing boat to anchor properly, where barbed crab baits are fished off from the stern into a deep slough and not under the boat." The winners of the recent black drum fishing tournament will be honored during the Nassau Sport Fishing Association social meeting. The monthly event will be held April 23 beginning at 7 p.m. at Ten Acres.

Their largest wahoo weighed 87.48 pounds. visit www.nsfafish.com. Many black drum fishermen feel as though some of the best drum fishing action is yet to come. "I would have liked for the drum fishing tournament to r un right through the month of April," Peeples said. "There should be a major black drum migration around the up coming full moon, which takes place April 15. Also the tides will be ideal with a flood tide arriving after the sunsets at 10:03 p.m. April 15." Even though the NSFA black drum competition has ended, area fishermen will be trying to beat David Cartwright's current Florida IGFA black drum all-tackle r ecord, which weighed 96 pounds. Cartwright also caught his record-breaking black drum while night fishing just off Main Beach during an incoming tide. Fernandina Beach's Ryan Rodeffer and team "Game Day" won the 2014 Northeast Florida Wahoo Shootout with an amazing three-fish weight of 238 pounds. Their largest wahoo weighed 87.48 pounds. T eam "Game Day" won a new Y ellowfin 21-foot bay boat powered by a 250 hp Yamaha outboard and Ameratrail boat trailer valued at $63,000. Capt. Jimmy Johnson will hold a backwater fishing clinic sponsored by the Nassau Sport Fishing Association April 12 beginning at 1 p.m. The event will take place at the Dee Dee Bartel state park and boat ramp located at the north end of 14th Street. Main topics will include summer tarpon fishing at Amelia Island and targeting popular backwater species, including redfish, sea trout, flounder and more. Johnson will demonstrate how to rig up and fish for all of these saltwater gamefish species.

That is what the doctors told Amelia Islander Walt Moser. His liver and kidneys were failing. A visit to Mayo Clinic resulted in h is being added to the transplant list for both liver and kidn eys. Walt and his wife assumed it would be a long wait, but as luck would have it W alts name came up w ithin days, not weeks or months. He is now feeling bett er than e ver and on the Management Team for the Katie Caples Foundation. Riding back from Mayo Clinic and discussing what they were facing, thec ouple were both surprised at how little they knew about o rgan transplants and organ d onation. A lightning strike, as I often observe, can happen at any time. It can be an acci dent, unexpected bad news or a life threatening diagnosis. Lightning strikes change ourl ives and the way we look at a nd value each and ever y day. I n 1988 another couple, Dave and Susan Caples, experienced their own lightning strike the tragic death of their 17-year-old daughter in an automobile accident. The Caples, who r ecently sold t heir awar d-winning bed and b reakfast inn, the Elizabeth P ointe Lodge, wer e told that Katie would not survive. They too knew little about organ transplants. A r epresentative from OPO (Organ Procurement Organization) talked to them about the possibility of donating Katie s or gans. The C aples were comforted by the s ensitive and thoughtful woman who reminded them that Katie had made the choice for them. As she got her first drivers license, she chose to be an organ donor. Ever yone who faces tragedy finds their own way to g rieve and go on. The Caples f ound their way and their way has been a commitment to helping others understand and consider the importance of or g an donation. The couple created the Katie Caples Foundation. The Foundation allowed the community, f riends and family to support a scholarship fund in her honor. The Foundation wanted to do more. We needed a fundraising event to create awareness and raise money to c reate broader organ donor a war e ness pr ograms. I just knew it should be a bike ride, Caples shares and then smiles. I have never been a bicycle rider I am a sailor but I knew the bike ride was the right event, so we did it. W alt Moser has found a w ay as well. He serves on the m anagement team and shar e s his very personal story on behalf of the Katie Caples Foundation. Jennifer Cook, events director shared, We are so appreciative of the communitya nd its support for so many y ears. As the Ride is in its 1 0th year (and the Foundation in its 15th) the board and management team has seen such an outpouring of suppor t fr om the community and that commitment inspires us. There are lots of ways to get involved. You do not havet o ride 100 miles! You can bike t he distance you ar e comfortable with, walk or volunteer. Maybe the most important thing you can do is to make sure your drivers license indicates your intent to donate your or gans and that your family suppor ts your decision.

The Katie Ride was established in 2005 to raise awareness about organ donation registration and to raise funds for the Katie Caples Foundation educational pr o grams. Jennifer shared staggering information about the status of organ donations in the U.S. For example, 121,000 patients ar e on the national or gan donation r eg istry awaiting an organ. Eighteen people across the countr y die each day awaiting an or gan. The Katie Caples Foundation focuses on r eaching students in 20 counties as they get their driver licenses, whereby they can indicate their desire to donate their organs. They are seeing gr eat r esults. In Florida, 47 per cent of licensed drivers are organ donors. In the 20 counties covered by the Foundation, 64 percent of licensed drivers are designated or gan donors. The Katie Ride continues to gr ow in its reach.
