FPU asks state to raise rates in Fernandina ANGELA DAUGHTRY News-Leader Florida Public Utilities has notified the state that it plans t o increase its base fee rate for Fernandina Beach and island customers, who could see a rate increase as soon as J uly, according to FPU President Jeff Householder. FPU is asking for a total rate increase of 6.7 percent for all customers, with an average rate increase of 4.62 percent for the average electrical customer. T hat would mean an increase of about $6 in the average monthly electrical bill when the rate increase is finalized in January. Householder said Thursday the Florida Public Service Commission wouldb e holding a public customer service hearing locally on the proposed rate increase i n the near future. A date has not yet been determined. O ne reason for the base rate increase, Householder said, is because of $25 million in equipment upgrades that were needed after FPU was purchased by Chesapeake Utilities Corp. in 2009. When Chesapeake purchased the system, there were a lot of things that needed work, Householder said. Outdated equipment at the substations that had always b een pr o blematic needed work, as well as r eplacement of o ld transfor mers and cables, some of which had been i nstalled in the early 1970s, he said. The company also spent enormous amounts fixing service issues that caused customers to lose power, Householder said, and replaced thousands of wooden elec$1.00 We grew up witho ut him Memorial service for fallen officers MARY MAGUIRE N e w s-Leader A A n gela Parks Lawson was four years old when h er father, Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Charles Parks, died in the line of service. I have very few memories of him, like I r emember him telling me to always wash my hands, s aid Lawson. I dont remember his personality, but people tell me that he liked to tell jokes. I like to tell jokes when Im nervous so I like to think that I got that part of him. Parks was shot and killed in 1973 while tr y ing to apprehend two armed robbery suspects on I-95. He served six years on the job and was stationed in Yulee. My mother was pregnant with my sister at the time, said Lawson, 45, who is now a guidance counselor atY ulee Middle School. W e gr ew up without him. Lawson remembered her father at a memorial service last W ednesday morning to honor local law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty. Nassau County Sherif fs Office, the city of Fernandina Beach and the Florida Highway Patrol gathered at the sheriffs headquarters along A1A for the joint tribute. Im here to remember him and all officers who ser ve, said Lawson. Lawsons sister is a social worker and could not attend the ser vice because of work obligations. She said her mother died 10 years ago. Lawson said she once thought about going into law enforcement. I applied to FDLE (Florida Department of Law Enforcement) but they hired an intern instead of me so I became a teacher. Thats a lot like a law enforcement of ficer right? said Lawson. Speakers offered somber messages of appreciation for law enfor cement officers and their families. The words thank you will never be enough, but we ar e so ver y thankful, said Sherif f Bill Leeper Im in awe of the bravery, courage, commitment and selfless dedication of the law enforcement members.

These costs were over a seven-year period and need to be recovered, Householder said. A nother reason for the increase is because revenues have been lower than expected due to no significant local population growth during the same period, Householder said. On acceptance of the filing by the PSC, it usually takes about eight months for the final r ate increase to take effect, Householder said, following public notification and one public hearing. A small interim rate increase will most likely happen this July, and the permanent rate increase will go into effect in January. Base rates may not be c hanged without approval of the state Public Service Commission, Householder said. The upcoming increase will be the fifth in 28 years, and the last r ate increase was seven years a go. Householder noted that the natural gas system FPU brought o nto Amelia Island last year is separate from the electrical syst em and has no effect on the proposed rate increase. FPU has a franchise with the city of Fernandina Beach, but the city and residents must go through the Public Service Commission if they have any o bjections to base rates, Householder said. The whole purpose of the Public Service Commission is to look at the filing and make sure it is justified, he said. A sudden spike in city electric bills that occurred in 2010 was because of high fuel charg es caused by an increase in coal and environmental costs, H ouseholder said. Since then, he said, fuel costs for FPU have gotten cheaper because wholesale costs have come down. Fuel rates are set every January with the Public Service Commission.

Like a starfish that loses an arm or a shark that loses a tooth, some things can regenerate through the forces of nature. Historic downtown Fernandina Beach is like this. However, i t instead regenerates through the forces of economic vitality, resonating from a resilient Centre Street business district. Once again, new businesses are being regenerated in Fernandina Beach replacing a handful of those that have closed. And the upstarts could b e some of the most promising yet. A microbrewery. A rum distillery. And several restaurants with refreshing twists. Just when it appeared that new businesses may not arrive like always to replace old ones, leaving behind shuttered storefronts, another wave of investment and innovation shows up here. As reliably as the n ext ocean wave hitting the beach. A new microbrewery will open in the former OKanes site. It is the brainc hild of Espaa owner Roberto Pestana and Salty Pelican co-owners T.J. Pelletier and Al Waldis. It will feature local beers made from scratch. The microbrewery concept has worked swimmingly for quaint towns like Asheville, N.C. In fact, Ashevilles renaissance period in the 1990s sprouted from the seeds of several microbreweries opening in its downtown. Keeping with the theme of local brewing, an empty buildi ng along Second Street will be converted into a distillery. The Marlin & Barrel Distillery is the creation of former airline executive Robert Morenc, and will make its foray by producing locally labeled rum. Later on, Morenc will move into producing vodka, gin and w hiskey. Hell reportedly serve as the facilitys head distiller. Another empty storefront at 614 Centre St. will soon be filled with a capable replacement. The old Bonitos site will be occupied by a new restaurant, Palate.

Downtown regenerates economic vitality S TEVE MARKET P LACE Steve Nicklas a gers from The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island or the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort are starting their own businesses. The Omnis Tammy B arnes and one of its chefs, Matthew Kennedy, are creatingP alate, a steak and seafood restaurant with a raw bar. M eanwhile, it was a sad day when longtime favorite Beech Street Grill closed more than a year ago. The sadness may soon turn to gladness. Ernie Saltmarsh, owner of the Florida House Inn and Green Turtle, is renovating the old Beech Street Grill restaur ant as well as the small shops alongside it. He is also further uniting the Florida House and G reen Turtle operations by opening a dining area in the courtyard between the two popular locations. And a nostalgic part of F ernandina Beachs history could soon be restored. Twoi mportant parcels on and near the waterfront, the Tringali and t he Standard Marine properties, have been purchased by a new owner. Front Street Property, LLC, consists of multiple partners from Atlanta who purchased the bank-owned properties for $2 million in cash. They apparently want to clean up the propert ies and do something that fits into the historic flavor of downtown. T hat will be a refreshing change for properties that have languished and stagnated since the mid-2000s. Just as a shark can re-grow 24,000 teeth in a l ifetime, and a starfish can replicate a lost arm into a new one ora n entirely new creature, downtown Fernandina Beach has a gain proven its resiliency. It is a delectable town that lures new business and invention. You can toast to it, drink to it or feast on it. Steve Nicklas is a financial advisor with a major U.S. firm who lives on Amelia Island. His business columns appear in seve ral newspapers in North Florida. email@example.com Be ready for storm Local homeowners are being sought to participate in the Make Mitigation H appen workshop at 6 p.m. May 28 at Peck Center, 516 South 10th St. During the two-hour workshop participants will meet with exper t s who will provide valuable inform ation on how homeowners can undertake one or m ore mitigation projects on their homes to strengthe n them against the hazards that threaten Florida.

Both the F lorida House and the Florida Senate, at the conclusion of the 2014 session, approved the expenditure. The appropriation calls for a grant for $1 million to the St. Johns River Ferry. This grant f ollows the recent announcem ent fr om the Federal Highway Administration wher e by it awarded a separate grant to the St. Johns Fer r y for $900,000, with the funds to be used for operational expenses. The FHA grant will be distributed in twoa nnual payments of $450,000 e ach. T he St. Johns River Fer r y is a car and passenger fer r y that connects the north and south ends of A1A in Duval County linking Maypor t V illage and Fort George Island via the St. Johns River. In 2013, the ferry was dry-docked in Decemberf or needed repairs. For the 11 m onths that the fer r y was oper ational in 2013, 402,914 passengers sailed across the river, with a reported 225,015 vehicles crossing. S tate Rep. Janet Adkins has advocated for continued operat ions of the St. Johns River Ferry. The ferry is a valuable transportation link for NE Florida and also for the residents of the Mayport Naval Station. The fer ry has been in service since 1948 and theseg rant monies will allow the f er ry to continue its daily services to the community she said in a press release. The fer r y has been shown to sup port both larger and small business on both sides of the river and continued fund-i ng is needed in order to keep t he ferry operational. I am p leased that again this year we wer e able to set aside a portion of the budget for this vital service. The St. Johns River Fer r y operates daily, including holidays.

T he other day traveling with a friend who was wor-r ied he would miss lunch, we stopped at Chick-fil-A for a s andwich. Since he is particular about what he eats, I was intrigued by why he picked Chick-fil-A. He claims it has a unique taste. This led me to G oogle the founder, S. Truett Cathay, and think about hows ome amongst us make it big. While for most of us p atiently gaining the right educational and job credentials is the best road to success, I am impressed with those like Truett Cathay, who h ave the skills, drive and vision to do it on their own. Int his, I am not referring to athletes or film stars like LeBron J ames, Paul Newman or photographer Ansel Adams, who have so much talent, they dont need to follow the usual traditions. I am referring to business people like Mary Kay Ash, founder of Mary K ay Inc., Ray Kroc, founder of McDonalds, Russell S immons, founder of Def Jam records, S. Daniel Abraham, founder of Slim Fast, Simon Cowell, creator of American Idol, and George Eastman, founder of Kodak. While they are responsible for different businesses and come from varied backgr ounds, they fit a particular model. They visual-i ze a need, are willing to take f inancial risk and have the a bility to develop a product or service to fill the need. In addition they have the drive and sales talent to get others to trust their ideas. T wo residents of Amelia Island, Steve Selig and BillR iddell, may not be famous b ut have had gr eat success by f ollowing the same model. Bill Riddell is a great example of someone who made it big without family help or an education. Bill had two alcoholic par ents and basically took r esponsibility for his lifeb y the age of 12. At 18, he n eeded to get a job. In his early 20s, with a wife and k ids, he knew he hadt o find something better. B ill saw a need. Trailers and trucks that were being stored in lumbery ards needed servicing. It was a niche business and hew as successful. Early on, a mentor taught h im in his words, how to really sell. First, it was water softeners and then it was TGS, which found a niche by providing office supplies for doctors offices. In 1993, soon after Bill left TGS, he formed H ealthLink, a manufacturer of medical products. It also filled a n important niche, developing a wide range of products including deodorizers, medical lamps, tubes, sensitivity discs and curettes. HealthLink became so successful that in 2011, Clorox, a major Fortune 500 company, pur chased it. While he had an arrangement with Clorox, Billc ould not tolerate a Fortune 5 00 bur eaucracy. Now free, h e is back working on another big idea. While from a very different background, Steve Selig f ollowed a similar model. Steves father was a successf ul business owner who mentored Steve from the age of 8, introducing him to the shoe business, its customers and how to sell. After college, Steve, influenced by President Kennedy, felt a patriotic obligation and joined the Air Force during the V ietnam War. When, five years later, his dad passed away and the company was sold to Morton Shoe, a discounter, Steve came back from the service and joined the new owner. He soon realized the business climate was changing away from discount ers and he needed to find a different customer base. He came up with a concept focused on upscale brand name shoes, Street Cars T he Shoes Your Feet Get Off O n and Generra shoes. Generra was a high-end clothi ng line with a position in every major department store in the country which Steve very successfully leveraged with his Generra shoes. He grew his Generra shoe sales force from 3 to 21. Unfortunately, after a great r un the young Generra owners made some big mistakes a nd cratered. Steve sold what was left of his business to Mercury International for a substantial profit. When working for Mercury didnt work, Steve resigned but with a 1year non-compete, he had limited options. He joined Craddock Terry, a Virginia c ompany that made pretty black shoes, as a consultant. Soon, Steve came up with the idea that a potentially huge market for lots of black shoes were the numerous branches of the military. They also needed accessories like shoe polish which Steve could prov ide. While a great idea, Steve had to patiently travel the country with military buyers developing appreciation, relationships and a lot of busin ess. When Craddock Terry c rashed, Steve still had his military business, which con-t inues to thrive. When you first meet Bill o r Steve you may underestimate them. While obviously smart and innovative, they are surprisingly tough-minded and willing to walk away f rom any situation that doesnt feel right. S o, if you have the vision to see a business need, have t he stomach to take financial risk, have the ability to develop a product or service to meet this need and the energy plus sales ability to make it w ork you may also do it your way and maybe becomef amous.

HEATHER A. PERRY News-Leader C hef Aaron Moffat, who owned and operated a restaur ant in Michigan for 16 years, looked long and hard at where to locate his eatery and what kind of restaurant would be the best fit for the area. Choosing Yulee was easy, he said. It has the s mall-town atmosphere I love and lots of East Coast tourists. I ts a place where people appreciate a fine steak that isnt glued together and flavor injected to resemble real meat like the chains are serving these days. People are happy to discover that our prime rib eye, New York strip and sirloins are cooked to perfection a nd wont put a huge dent in their wallets. Keenly responsive to customer feedback at The Branding Iron Bar-B-Q and Steak House, Moffat took their complaints about his init ial line of steaks to heart and has since switched to a top upper choice of certified Black Angus meat called Five Star. Additional discussions with locals revealed that Yulee folks also have a fondness for barbecue so Aaron did some r esearch in a state where they know their barbecue, A rkansas. His sister Crystal and brother-in-law Greg Vereyken own the Branding Iron in Mena, Ark., and are co-owners of Aarons restaurant. Moffat soaked up their wisd om and secrets and brought that knowledge back to Yulee where he admits that making all the recipes from scratch keeps his kitchen crew hopping. Although serving this type of food takes a bit more work, Moffat says he is determined t o provide nothing less to his customers, promising that plastic containers of sides will n ever be served at his establishment. Its immediately apparent the coleslaw is homemade by the taste, says Moffat. The pinto beans are also made from scratch and slow cooked, as are the marinara and Alfredo sauces. The b aked potatoes are actually wrapped in foil and baked in t he oven to guarantee that down-home taste. In addition to excellent meats, diners can also enjoy vegan burgers or shrimp, chicken and pasta, or handpattied, grilled to order sirloin b urgers and a Philly steak sandwich that is to die for. Friday nights are all you can eat steak and catfish whiskers and on Saturdays its all you can eat catfish, steak and shrimp. While waiting for their entre, guests can enjoy a b read bar stocked with a variety of homemade breads and rolls or choose from a wide s election of appetizers known as kickers including chicken wings, fried portabella mushroom strips or fried green tomatoes. And salad lovers arent left out of the festivities. There are several delicious offerings such as marinated steak salad, g rilled chicken salad or garden greens. F or a sweet finale, check out the Branding Irons specialty, Possum Pie, consisting of Oreo crust with a brownie inside, filed with cheesecake, topped with cherries and drizzled with chocolate. T he staff at The Branding Iron loves giving back to the community. e are open to all local schools or private organizations in helping with their fundraisers such as spirit nights and car washes, said Moffat, who is proud to be p artnering with Nassau County Exceptional Education Services.

D. Providing Property for Public Community Purposes. Making airport property available at less than fair market value rent for public recreational and other community uses, for the pur p ose of maintaining positive airportc ommunity relations, can be a legitim ate function of an airpor t pr o prietor in operating the airport. Accordingly, in certain circumstances, providing airport land for such purposes will not be considered a violation of the self-sustaining r equir ement. Generally the circumstances in which below-market u se of airport land for community purp oses will be consider ed consistent w ith the grant assurances ar e : 1. The contribution of the airpor t property enhances public acceptance of the airport in a community in the immediate area of the airport; the property is put to a general public use desir ed by the local community; and the public use d oes not adversely affect the capacity, s ecurity safety or operations of the air p or t Examples of acceptable uses include public parks, r ecreation facilities and bike or jogging paths. Examples of uses that would not be eligible are road maintenance equipment storage; and police, fir e department, and other government facilities i f they do not directly support the opera tion of the airport. 2. The property i nvolved would not reasonably be expected to produce more than de minimis revenue at the time the community use is contemplated, and the proper ty is not r e asonably expected to be used by an aeronautical tenant or other wise be needed for airport operations in the foreseeable future. When airpor t property reasonably may be expected to earn more than minimal revenue, it still may be used for community purposes at less than FMV if the revenue earned from the community use appr oximates the r evenue that could otherwise be generated, provided that the other pr ovisions of VII. D. are met. 3. The community use does not preclude reuse of the property for airport purposes if, in the opinion of the airport sponsor, such reuse will provide greater benefits to the airport than continuation of the community use. 4. Airpor t r evenue is not to be used to support the capital or operating costs associated with the community use.... (http://www.faa.gov/airports/resourc es/publications/orders/compliance_5190_6/media/5190_6b_appE.pd f). I cannot think of a better public, community use than our Nassau Humane Society animal shelter and dog park open to and used by all. Robert Warner Fernandina Beach Re: FAA questions Humane Society lease of city airport land (May 16). First of all, it is only fair that whenever someone grinds an axe his motives should be disclosed. I am both a licensed pilot and love to fly; and, I am a devoted member and supporter of the Nassau Humane Society (NHS With all due respect, both the complaint made by Mr (Mickey the question posed by Ms. (Deandra Brooks of the FAA evidence a high level of ignorance of both financial and functional fact and need to be addressed. F inancial considerations: The comp laint is made that the long-ter m lease t o NHS at nominal annual rental consideration is an undervalue use of the pr o perty which is put to question by the FAA. NHS is cur rently constructing on the property leased to it by the airport a new facility for its nonprofit and pub-l ic uses, and at a stated budget cost of $ 2 million derived fr om donations. It is a fact of landlord/tenant law that absent some sort of compensation provisions of a lease, if a tenant constr u cts a per manent fixtur e on leasehold pr o perty, that fixture becomes the property of the landlor d/owner by operation of law, at the end of the lease term. Thus, a t the end of the 40-year term, the airp or t/city will be enriched by the future d ollars represented in a replacement cost of the building. In just terms of the inflation over the period, that pr e sent $2 million cost of constr uction will have a cost to reproduce at the end of the ter m of many multiples. There is ample general precedent for owner/landlords to grant a most favorable nominal rate of rent to ten-a nts who are to make significant improvements to the leased property. Those pr e cedents exist in ter m s of air por t properties around the nation. Perhaps the actual complaint and question her e should be whether NHS is tr uly getting pr oper value under the lease terms. Functional considerations: Both Mr B aity and Ms. Br ooks must understand and be awar e that small municipal air por t s ar ound the country have to continually fight for their very existence, and such fights are increasing both in terms of intensity and frequency. Sur rounding such airports are encroaching residential developments and ther e goes up a mighty cr y of complaint each time an air craft (especially older generation jet aircraft) depart over such residential areas. Although the legal precedent is that if the claimed nuisance existed and you moved to it, you cannot complain (e.g., coming to the nuisance), you should try to explain that to an angry mob of r esidents in the chambers of the legislative body of the governing entity. Why else does the FAA establish and enforce stringent noise abatement flight pr ocedur es ar ound such air ports? The airport is part of the community and it ser ves the community If you diversify such beneficial public uses of its pr operty, you strengthen and enhance its worth to the community both directly and incidentally. Ms. Brooks, where are your airports going to go if you tr uly isolate their use to only aviation? I suggest that it will be the way of the dinosaur. Rather, to use vacant and other wise unused sur rounding land of the airport for worthwhile and beneficial public purposes, beholding and friendly to the airport, is to strengthen the very function and purpose of the airport itself. Ms. Br ooks, to specifically answer your question, there is ample evidence of precedence for what is happening at the Amelia Island Municipal Airpor t in your own files. I suggest that you open those files and consider the present situation of the very beautiful facility of the Collier County (Florida Humane Society, which was built several years ago on what I am advised is leased property of the Naples Municipal Airport. That along with w hat I am confident ar e similar pr ef e r e ntial leases to the Collier County Sheriffs Department and other public purposes, ar e adjuncts to and enhancements of the airpor t itself. In summation, the airpor t is a part of the community and in many ways is the community itself. D avid L. Wolfe, Jr. Esq. Y ulee D D i i s s h h e e a a r r t t e e n n e e d d The Nassau County Commission meeting May 12 was ver y dishear ten ing to witness. Taxpayers voted for matur e commissioners not children. Jr. Boatright was able to prove voters should have thought twice befor e r eelecting him. I personally am sick and tired of Mike Boyle and Boatwright bringing up the lawsuit between John Crawford and the state. Boatright br ought a plaque, which he paid for, to the commission meeting and announced he would hang it in the courthouse to remind taxpayers that John Crawford cost taxpayers over $80,000 in the lawsuit. Since when can you put a personal plaque in the taxpayer-funded courthouse? Is that an action of a matur e commissioner that makes decisions for over 70,000 Nassau county residents? I gave Mr. Boatright a check in the amount of $65 for the plaque so I could put it in the trash, but he declined. Has he nothing better to do than constantly attack our Clerk of Court, Mr. Crawfor d? What about his job of tr ying to save taxpayers money and being fiscally responsible? Serving as a commissioner is a serious job and the decisions that are made affect everyone in Nassau County. What about the millions of wasted dollars that take place every year by a yes vote or a state signal light paid for by Nassau taxpayers, the town of Callahan and Hilliar d get free fire service when you and I pay for ours and theirs, just to mention a few? That in itself was not the only attack on our Clerk of Court as Danny Leeper seemed to join in as well. The animosity continues time after time and it s now out of control. Some of our commissioners need to rethink why they sit before the people. What would happen if there were no budget office in the county and just the Clerk of Cour t as it used to be? What would the commissioners do then, yes, they would have to work with Mr Crawfor d. Is it time to petition t hat move? Clerk of Cour t John C rawfor d is a good stewar d of our money, is legally responsible for taxpayers money and his door is always open. Our clerk s office has a wonderful budget pr esentation without raising taxes. County Commissioner Steve K elley as well has come up with a prop osed budget on his own and there w ould be no tax hike. The sky is not f alling, people, the commissioners want to spend more money for their build and they will come project. By the way the $10 million that was set aside for the sheriffs administration building has dwindled down by several hun dred thousand and the commissioners didn t even know about it. Makes you think, budget office or clerks office for a true accounting. Finally, I have an opinion on the local media coverage. What happened to unbiased and balanced news r epor t ing instead of promoting big government? Our r eporters were always fair with all stories and gave equal time to each side regardless of party affiliation. Has Washington-style reporting come to Nassau County? Michele Kling Nassau County A A s s h h a a m m e e When a cartoon like the one in Fridays paper of a vet waiting in line for benefits to remind us of the ongoing despicable way our veterans are being treated, its time for all of us to raise hell with all of our politicians. Republican, Democrat or Independent time to stop all lip service from all of them. It gets so tiring to hear them use this as a campaign promise and political ploy for votes they all do it and our vets deser ve so much mor e than this. And this current administration is by far the worst, cutting benefits and still claiming to be advancing pr ograms and benefits for our vets. None of our service personnel or families should have to put up with this in any way They served, died and were wounded r egar dless of right or wr ong for this countr y So all politicians get your acts together for once and make sur e we take care of what needs to be done to cut all red tape and give these vets what they are due for what they have sacrificed for us. Stop the lip service of what you are going to do and get it done, so in two years or four we do not have to hear the r hetoric over and over D anny Lawhor n Amelia Island G G o o i i n n g g t t o o t t h h e e d d o o g g s s What s happening to our town? On May 9, headlines in the NewsL eader r ead, City OKs dining with d ogs. Wow. So city restaurants can a llow folks with dogs to bring them to t he patio area tables at their establishments. What could possibly go wrong with this? I understand ser vice dogs with folks who need them. These animals are highly trained to do that. I, for one, will not sit next to Grandma with Fifi or Rowdy Redneck with his pit bull or Rottweiler. Can you imagine some youngster running past or moving fast to pet one of these animals? The animal gets spooked and the child gets mauled or two or thr ee of these animals don t like each other and get into a fight. I can hear the owners, I don t understand, thats never happened before. Its a dumb idea. Just below this headline, Waterslide approved. Our commissioners approved an inflatable waterslide that will be installed at Main Beach. This piece of trash is 180 feet by 50 feet. Dont know how tall. Perhaps 30 feet? Its 2.5 tons of bright plastic (PVC Pat Gass said, It might look a bit cheesy. Thats the best you could say about it. Oh, she still voted to install it. This piece of garbage is a reflection on our community for all to see. The perfect spot for this to be set up is right next to the Dumpsters in the parking lot at Main Beach. I wonder if anyone on the commission asked the people at Fernandina Cay or Ocean Park condos if they would like this eyesore in their view everyday. Everybody in favor raise your hand. What the heck, they only have $350,000 to $500,000 invested in their oceanview pr oper ties. Ed Boner, the only commissioner not to vote for it, under stands what something like this junk does to property values. Commissioners, pull your collec tive heads out of the sand and think. Ill bet not one of these commissioners has their home in view of this thing. Think of the voters who put you into of fice. A couple pieces of gold for your budget is not worth it. This is still a wonderful place to live. Seems like every time you people have a meeting, the quality of our lives on this island diminishes.

Box 16766, Fer nandina Beach, FL., 32035 E-mail: mpar nell@fbnewsleader com. visit us on-line at fbnewsleader .com Saturday is graduation day for seniors at Fernandina Beach High School. Ill attend, of c ourse, all decked out in my robe, sitting proudly with other faculty members, watching a s these now former students walk across the stage, get their diploma, smilingly wave to cheering family members, quickly get their picture taken, throw their tasseled caps into the air and blissfully march out into a world that, for them, has changed. Sometimes, during the ceremony, I glance o ver at the rows of young men and women and wonder what their lives will be like, what their w orld will be like, where theyll be 10, 20, 30 years from now. Theyll be just fine. I believe that, despite all the dire predictions made by people much older than they, more jaded than they, each blinded by the cynicism so prevalent in their visions of the future visions not shared by a single member of the Class of 2014. These skeptical visionaries bring to mind the memorable phrase spoken by Sidney P oitiers mother in the movie, Guess Whos Coming to Dinner, Theyve forgotten what its like to be young (paraphrased There are clichs associated with high school graduation, time-worn and comforting but, in my opinion, completely true, clichs like Graduation is a time of hope, optimism and promise. Or, Where others see obstacles, graduates see challenges; others see r oadblocks, graduates see opportunities. Clichs, yes but solid as a rock. When, on rare occasions, I yield to the pragmatic visionaries and start worrying about the futures of recent graduates, Im c omforted by what must have been going on in the minds of the class of 1917 as America entered W WI, or the class of 1929 at the beginning of the Great D epression or the class of 1942 that graduated just after Pearl Harbor. They were young and filled with optimism, though thoroughly aware of the uncertainty and anxiety that filled every conv ersation and lined every careworn face. I am comforte d by the fact that those young people, those graduates went forward to persevere through the Great Depression and emerge victorious from WWII. Like those teachers in 1917, 1929 and 1942, I havent a clue as to what the future might bring. I just know that that the Class of 2014 a nd every class Ive had the honor of teaching is well prepared for any and everything that might come their way. These young men and women are kind, generous, respectful, courteous, care about their community, value volunteerism and they are exceedingly tolerant tolerant of people who believe differently than they, of people who have ideas different from their own, who l ook and act different and, much to their credit, they are tolerant and accepting of people and groups for who and what they are. These are character traits Ive witnessed in our young people; these are the traits that separate t hem from generations past and these are the traits that will help them grow and adapt in an uncertain future, and these are the traits that w ill help them make ours a better world. And they are survivors. They have surv ived an educational system designed by ambitious professional politicians and sequestered, ivory-towered educators, a system that began testing them when they were kindergarteners, FCAT-traumatized them when they were third-graders and subjected them to wave after wave of standardized testing t hroughout their elementary, middle-school and high school years. That distorted system h as not made them better citizens, or better critical thinkers, or more intellectually curious or students who appreciate the intrinsic value of learning its just made them better test takers. Thats not their fault, its ours for being aware and doing nothing. But enough about a faulty system, lets focus on the product the Class of 2014. Im sure that teachers in every state, in every c ounty and in every school can write great things about their students, I just know ours; I just know mine, and the wonderful things I know, the positive things I know, the hopeful things I know about our young people can fill a book. In my mind, I am the luckiest person in the world I am a teacher at Fernandina Beach High School and I am honored to teach some o f the finest young people on the face of this Earth. As I tell my American History students, history depends on who writes it now its time for the Class of 2014 to start writing theirs. Go f orth and conquer! Class of 4, make your history!

DEBATE AND T ACKLE Ron Sapp
Darn those pesky squirrels! Some of you readers m ight remember our problems with squirrels a few m onths ago. A band of four of them staked out our bird f eeders and no matter how Bucko tried to fix them, the s quirrels always knew better. But then nature took its course. A strong wind blew down the wax myrtle tree that bore the branches that the s quirrels ultimately used to leap from onto the distant f eeders really long jumps I might add. But with the tree gone, the squirrels finally could not access the birdseed. After a few days the birds got used to the difference and adjusted to eatingt heir meals a bit further from the cover the tree afforded. F or a brief while we were happy. But then over in our side yard things began to happen. I started noticing scores of bottlebrush flowers on the ground all around these shrubs. Maybe Bucko has been pruning again? But why just the flowers? But when I c onfronted him about his over-zealous gardening he was as mystified as I was. Was t he tree just dropping its b looms? But some of these f lowers were found on the ground at quite a distance fr o m the shrubs, further than wind could carry them. A mystery for sure. A nd then another p iece of the puzzle fell i nto place. Up on our roof in front of the house, right where r ats had chewed into o ur roof before, requiring costly removal and repair efforts, the chewing had begun again. Oh no, more rats! So we called in the pest control companya gain, and they repaired the beginning hole again before a ny rodents could return to the attic. Rats! And then one day another puzzle piece appeared. I wondered why our cat Dumela was spending more time than usual in the back office room peering out the window. One time I found the answer. T here, hanging upside down on the nearby bottlebrush plant was a squirrel, showing t he same behavior I phot ographed earlier at the bird f eeder. And it was happily chewing on a bottlebrush flower Later I was in the back yard and heard rustling in the bottlebrush shrubs and suddenly out ran a squirrel with a b ottlebrush flower in its mouth. The squirrel startled me, but I startled it more, and i t dropped the flower and ran off into the woods. So the a nswer was right in front of me. Squirrels were eating t hese flowers and sometimes carrying them off. T hats when I started looking at the dropped flowers a bit more closely and discovered that the small filaments of the flowers originate from a t iny bud at each ones base. And, apparently these buds a re tasty to squirrels at least. I dont begrudge the squirrels this bit of natural food there are plenty of blossoms for all. This year my three bottlebrush shrubs are all atl east 8 feet tall and full of beautiful red blossoms. Bees h over around the bush, a good thing, and even better, hummingbirds and butterflies come in to sip their nectar. Even with the squirrels raiding the flowers everyone else using them seems to have enough as well. As for the dropped flowers on our deck a t a distance from the shrubs, I guess the squirrels are raising young, and sometimes w ant to carry off a full bloss om to show their kids, fine w ith me. But what is problematic is the fact that with their r e gular source of bird seed gone from their reach at the bird feeders, and their discovery of the bottlebrush shrubs, theyve a lso discovered our roof. W hat we thought was rat d amage turns out to be from squirrels. Now they have a r e gular highway onto the roof and they keep returning to the previously chewed place to work on it a bit more. I guess squirrels in the a ttic is better than rats in the a ttic but not by much. Bucko i s threatening to cut down the bottlebrush tree to prevent this, but I am hear t ily r e sist ing. But to keep the squir r e ls away Im almost willing to give them a ladder back to our bird feeders! A nd the back yard squirrel s aga continues. W onder what w ill happen next?

Katrina Wheeler Robinson and Carrie Anderson Mays completed the training recently, which i ncludes specific strategies for t hose in the law enfor cement arena. For a number of reasons, individuals experiencing mental illness and substance use disor ders often have more contact with the criminal justice system t han the general population d oes. Thus the better pr epar ed o f f icers and staf f are to respond effectively and appropriately, the more likely the interaction will be a positive one.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK OUTDOORS/ TIDES WEDNESDAY, MAY21, 2014NEWS-LEADER/ FERNANDINABEACH, FL ORIDAJulie Fournier was accepted for tryouts with the USA national U17 women's basketball team, which will take place in Colorado Springs, Colo., at the Olympic Training Center Thursday through Monday. There are just 162 girls who have been accepted to try out from all across the U.S. Fournier had to get her passport because if she is one of the 12 who makes the team, she will go to the Czech Republic. "This is a really big deal because a little over a year ago she was diagnosed with Crohn's disease and spent 4-5 months unable to play or function as a normal teenager," said her mother, Kamie. "She has had to make lots of changes with school because of some of the side effects. "She now does the Florida Vi r tual School to continue with her education." Fournier, a junior, was a member of the all-Nassau County girls basketball team for the 2013-14 season. The guard averaged 13.6 points, 5.8 rebounds and led the district in assists (five) and steals (4.2) for the Fernandina Beach High School Lady Pirates. The Basketball Club of Florida AAU girls basketball teams traveled to The Big House in Tavares over the weekend to play for the Florida AAU championship. The 11U girls reached the quarterfinal by beating the Gainesville Storm 26-24. The girls held a halftime lead of 14-11 before losing the lead in the second half with three minutes to go. They put on the defensive pressure and had clutch-free throws down the stretch by Maddie Millar and Riley Webber to win the game. They lost in the Elite Eight but made a great showing for the first-year team of fourthand fifth-graders. The 14U girls reached the state championship semifinal by upsetting the Port Orange Flames 46-44 in an almost flawless offensive effort led by Anna Arato with 14 points and Alexis Schultz with four three-pointers to advance. They faced the St. Augustine Celtics in the semifinal and lost by 14 points, but with another strong effort by Arato with 21 points. The 17U girls reached the semifinal and lost to the Dynasty Hoops Club. "The girls led by six at the half, but had some costly turnovers that ended the game with a 14-point loss." Coach Jacob Nantz said. A strong effort was turned in by Nassau County high school player of the year Karri Nantz with 25 points and two charges in the game. "All three teams end their season on a positive note," Coach Nantz said. "I am very proud of all the teams and their growth through the season. Girls basketball is now becoming very important to kids and parents here in Fernandina. We started last year with two age groups and added a third this season. We want to continue to grow in girls teams and make this area known as a place for quality girls basketball."

The team went to Lakeland Saturday to compete in the Florida State Ultimate Frisbee Championship. They went 5-0 on the day. They beat Oakleaf of Highland Park 6-4, Winter Park 8-5, T ampa Bay Fire Ants 9-4 and St. Johns Combine 9-8 (tied at 8-8, won on sudden death or Ultimate point) in the semifinal. The Dina-Saurs beat Oakleaf 12-9 in the final. Preparation for state came from a season of training and playing in various tournaments in Florida and the South Regional Championship in Greenville, S.C. "At regionals, we knew we were up against long-tenured programs from seven different states, one of which was over 20 years in existence," Coach Tom Rowan said. "We played five games at regionals and won one, breaking seed as we were the 16th seed of 16 teams. "We finished 13th but our goal was accomplished as we learned to play at a higher level which helped us win state. Teams we played were impressed at how we did at our first two day major tournament. "At state we deployed our conservative offense, choosing to use controlled, short passes rather than the long huck' (a long throw), which many teams rely heavily upon. We emphasized defense, using three different zones and man defense to constantly keep our opponents confused. We have mature players (11 seniors, 19 players total) who are all athletes in other sports. This gave us an edge we didn't have last year. "We competed in state last year, losing all three games. The team used my knowledge of strategy and their determination and athletic ability to flip the script' and rise and grind' out a victorious tournament victory in just their second year."

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Inaugural Fish to Fork held at Omni Six Amelia Island charter boat captains guided some of the best chefs in North America and special guests for a day of sport fishing Friday and eventually culinary competition at Omni Amelia Island Plantation. The inaugural event was called "Fish to Fork." Top chefs not only had to catch their own fish but had to clean their catch and incorporate their catch in the competition. Chefs included were Daven Wardynski, Omni Amelia Island Plantation; Richard Jones, Green Door Gourmet, Nashville, Tenn.; Bruce Moffett, Moffett Restaurant Group, Charlotte, N.C.; Eric Frischkorn, Jackson Family Fine Wines, Santa Rosa, Calif.; Tom Catherall, Here to Serve, Atlanta; and Zeke Mears, Bistro AIX, Jacksonville. The competition incorporated all types of Amelia Island saltwater angling, including offshore, bay and jetty and backcountry fishing. Charter fishing captains included Allen Mills, the Wahoo II; Benny Hendrix, the Heavy Hitter; Tony Peeples, Southern Style; Te rr y D. Lacoss, Amelia Angler II; and backcountry guides Ben Forehand and myself. Charter fishing, however, was limited to fishing the deep waters of Cumberland Sound and the many backcountry tidal rivers and marshes due to northeast winds gusting to 25 knots. Heavy rains that came Tuesday also hampered fishing conditions. W ith this in mind, the deep-sea charter fishing boats and their chefs were not able to fish their targeted offshore havens, where excellent eating bottom species would be caught. Also, keep in mind that grouper season opened May 1 and a major migration of cobia was now taking place in the open water of the Atlantic Ocean. Both cobia and grouper are highly regarded tablefare. Add to the plate delicious eating black sea bass, triggerfish, flounder, kingfish, Spanish mackerel and more that could not be targeted due to the high seas and winds. At the end of the competition, the fleet of Amelia Island charter boats returned to the Fernandina Harbor Marina with several fish tales, including large fish that emptied 5/0 fishing reels and ultimately broke the heavy fishing line. A variety of saltwater gamefish was caught and taken to the Omni hotel by the chefs for competition on the following day. The event included a team chef competition and Wardynski, Jones and Moffett captured first place. The event was sold out and held at the Omni Convention Center courtyard. Winners were determined by a vote from the 250 guests who sampled each of the team's dishes. Wa r dynski is a graduate of Northern Michigan University with a bachelor's degree in hotel and restaurant management. He has r eceived numerous awards from the American Culinary Federation, including a gold medal award in the Chicago National Restaurant Show. "I regard triggerfish as one of the best eating fish in the ocean," Wardynski said. "Triggerfish has an absolutely sweet taste and simply delicious eating." One of Chef Wardynki's favorite seafood to prepare is the smooth spotted ray, which also won him a culinary award during a recent competition in California.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK r P AGE 4B W EDNESDAY M AY 21, 2014 N EWS -L EADER / F ERNANDINA B EACH FL Amelias history rich in hotels and resorts Amelia Island has many, many wonderful places to stay, from cozy bed and breakfast inns to The RitzC arlton, Amelia Island or Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort. Many may not know that in the 1800s, Amelia Island was one of the most sought after resort destinations and known as the Newport of the South. The C.H. Mallory Steamship Line brought passengers from New York e ach week to sample Southern hospitality and enjoy the warm weather and elegant accommodations at one of Amelia Islands five elegant hotels. Amelia Island was hailed as The Queen of Summer Resorts by the 1896 edition of American Resorts Magazine. Readers were encoura ged to visit this new destination called Florida. Fernandina was the h opping-off place for those traveling to points south of the state line either by rail or ship. It is important to remember that there was not m uch past Fernandina and J acksonville in those days. It was not until the railroad opened up more southern and w armer resort locations that Fernandina lost her hold on the travelers from the Northeast seeking warmth in the cold months of winter. Throughout hist ory Fernandina has been prized as a port and was an obvious place for a railroad terminus. Where there is opportunity, entrepreneurs are quick to step in. Recognizing the island would be an attractive destinat ion for discriminating travelers, David Levy Yulee and the Florida R ailroad Company were quick to build properties for the elite of the Northeast. Their first hotel property was the Florida House, built in 1857. I t is considered the oldest continuall y operated tourist hotel in Florida. The Florida House, with its antebellum style, has been described as a comfortable rather than elegant h otel. It was a popular place for Sunday supper and often the Carnegies and their guests would come across from Cumberland Island, Ga., for a homey Sunday dinner. The most elegant hotel of all was the Egmont Hotel, which took up an entire square block. The hotel was f our stories high, with the first two stories featuring gracious piazzas. Across the street a park with orange trees and native plants provided a popular place to stroll. Barbed wire was required to keep the cows from eating the beautifully planted gardens. It was lighted by gas and heated by steam. Her glory days fore ver gone, the Egmont was torn down in 1906 after a failed attempt to f ind a tenant. Originally built for $150,000, it could be bought for $3,000, which included four large lots. Remnants of the grand hotel r emain in the four houses on S eventh Street, the sisters, which were built of the salvage when the Egmont was torn down. Another property built by the railr oad was the Swarthmore, with its sweeping porches and proximity to the sea and hard beaches that were popular for carriage rides. Its architect was a local favorite, Robert Sands Schuyler, and it reflected his fine eye for elegant detail. It was built in 1881 and destroyed by the hurricane of 1898. It had a short but c harmed life. Guests may have taken the cross-island trolley and while ladies took the air in the rocking chairs that lined the verandah, the men would enjoy the delights of the casino. There was bathing. If a lady wished to bath in the ocean, she was taken by carriage to the edge of the water where she would discreetl y take the water. After a 3 1/2-day trip aboard a M allory steamship with a stop in Charleston, S.C., the steamships would pull up and passengers would disembark for the short carriage r ide across roads of crushed shells t o their hotel. In addition to the Egmont and the Florida House, there were several other hotels and rooming houses. T he Mansion House, also called the Virginia House, was located at Broome and Third. With 50 rooms and park with orange trees, fountains and flowers, it shared the fate of so many hotels in those days it burned to the ground. Although it is sad to think of the thriving elegant hotels of the late 1 800s passed by for other new properties in warmer climates, it has proved a blessing for Amelia Island. If not for the movement south the island might have ended up another ugly, over-commercialized beachside resort destination. Once again our island is blessed with the finest of resort properties t hat, as the grand hotels of the late 1800s, cater to the every desire of t heir discriminating guests.

Shes only about a year old and was found as a stray, but she had been micro-chipped when she was about 6 months old. Unfortunately the microchip didnt lead back to her owner. She was covered with fleas, but were treating her for the skin condition they caused, and soon her coat should be beautiful again. She is very affectionate and loves to be petted and to cuddle with you. Shes so happy to meet our staff in the morning that when she wags her tail, her whole body wiggles! She walks well on her leash for a young dog and likes to do her business outside, so if shes not already housetrained we think she should be easy to train. She has a wonderful smile and gorgeous brown eyes, and she s a gr eat size for a house dog at only about 40 pounds. Coco Bon is a dog who has faced adversity but hasnt lost her love for people if anything, she appreciates human kindness even mor e. She will be your best friend for ever if youll give her a new loving home. And during the month of May, you can adopt Coco Bon at 50 per cent off the regular adoption fee under our Back in Black program to help black and black-andwhite dogs and cats find their forever homes!

He might be a bit shy at first, but hell soon warm up to you and ask for lots of affection. Hes even a leaner he loves attention so much, hell gently lean on you to soak up all the love he can get! Moby is a cat you really have to see to truly appreciate, because pictures cant do justice to his strikingly handsome coat.
