Kelley/ B oyle rematch GOP only Write-in on b allot close s August vote MICHAEL P ARNELL N e w s-Leader Two Nassau County Commission elections are on the ballot Aug. 26, butD emocrats and independent voters will b e able to cast ballots in just one of t hose. The race between incumbent Commissioner Bar r y Holloway and challenger Geor ge Spicer a r e match of the 2010 campaign, will be open to all voters since ther e ar e no opponents in November. B ut the election between incumb ent Commissioner Steve Kelley and f ormer commissioner Mike Boyle, also a rematch of 2010, is closed to Republicans only Thats because another Republican, Gene Alley has entered the race as a write-in candidate in November which makes the August election a Republican primary and closes the vote t o others. T his may serve to help Boyle, who complained after his loss in 2010 that Democrats and independents might have contributed to Kelleys victory. Boyle said Tuesday he believes an allRepublican primary election is preferable and might work to his advantage. But both he and Alley agreed that played no r ole in Alley s decision to become a candidate. Gene and I live in the same subdivision, or neighborhood, several blocks fr om each other I know him, Boyle said. I have not seen him in four or five months. I have never been in his house, he s never been in mine. They are acquainted, especially since Boyle is pr esident of the neigh borhood association, both men said. Both agreed they are not friends. He and I have never spoken about (the election Boyle acknowledged there is a division among Nassau County Republicans between those, like him, who have long been Republicans, and others who gr ew up as Southern Democrats and then changed parties, as many have locally in recent years. There are certainly opportunists . who saw that if they wer e ever going to be elected again, they need to change parties, Boyle said, citing Clerk of Cour t John Crawfor d and CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK News-Leader 1 6 0th year No. 53 C op yright, 2014 The News-Leader Fernandina Beach, FL Printed on 100% recycled newsprint with soy based ink.

T ALLAHASSEE Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEMo fficials remind beachgoers to check the surf conditions at public beaches t his holiday as the first tropical storm of the season passes by. Tropical Storm Arthur formed off the Atlantic Coast on Tuesday and was forecast to bring heavy rain, high s urf and winds to Nassau County today and possibly Thursday. E mergency Management officials said understanding the beach warni ng flags will help to keep beachgoers safe. When red flags are flying, swim-m ing in Floridas coastal waters can be dangerous. Rip currents can be difficult to detect especially around piers and jetties, said FDEM Director Bryan W. Koon. Pay attention to the beach warning flags for current surf condit ions, and be sure you know what to do if you experience a rip current. B efore you leave for the beach, check the latest National Weather S ervice forecast at www.ripcurrents.noaa.gov for local beach condi-t ions. Obey all instructions and orders f rom lifeguards. Lifeguards are trained to identify hazards. Know the meaning of and obey warnings represented by colored beach flags. D ifferent beaches may use different colors but a commonly used series i ncludes: Double Red: Beach is closed to t he public Single Red: high hazard, e.g., s trong surf or currents Yellow: medium hazard G reen: Calm conditions although caution is still necessary Purple: Flown with either Red or Yellow: Dangerous marine life Stay at least 100 feet away from p iers and jetties.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 3A W EDNESDAY J ULY 2, 2014 NEWS News-Leader Kelley, both former Democrats, who are allied against him. Others changed because (they preferred) the values of t he Republican Party, Boyle said, noting many Southerners b ecame disenchanted with the Democrats as that party came to be perceived as more liberal. I have always been a regist ered Republican, and have voted for Republican candidates f rom the first time I was eligible to vote (Barry Goldwater in 1 964), Boyle wrote in a critical letter to Nassau County Republican Executive Committee members after his defeat in 2010, complaining about the committees receptiveness to Kelley. Boyle, who is now vice president of the Republican E xecutive Committee, said then that the committee had discussed closing a primary election with a straw candidate to ensure only Republican voters can participate. . Like some REC members, I share the concern that closing a primary is somehow unseemly, and should b e unnecessary in a county where the Republicans have so many more registered voters than the Democrats. T here are 54,820 registered voters in Nassau County, more than half of them Republicans. There are twice as many Republicans as Democrats. Just1 2 years ago, Democrats were a majority of county voters. ( There are 29,591 R epublicans, 14,373 Democrats a nd 10,856 not registered to either party, according to the Nassau County Supervisor of Elections website.) Alley said he is running to b ring fresh eyes to the county commission. Alley has been i nvolved previously in transp ortation issues and campaigns t o preserve the local mills, specifically a proposal to establish a railroad switching yard in Yulee to move containers from trucks to trains to alleviate traffic on A1A into Fernandina. A lley, 67, who has lived here for 26 years, said, Ive watchedt he various machinations of government . I think a fresh pers pective would go a long way to getting people to work together He said his campaign is aimed at neither Kelley nor Boyle; his focus is on the gove rnment itself, not on any individual. P ointing to a divide between county commissioners and C lerk of Court Crawford, Alley said, I think theres a lot of counterproductive posturing thats taken place. Describing himself as a fisc al conservative, Alley said, I stick my oar in the water whenI think something needs to be done. H e said he chose the route of a write-in candidate because its the least expensive way of becoming a candidate. Write-in candidates must be registered voters who live in the district for an election, in this case the count ys District 2. Alleys name will not appear o n the ballot, but a space will be provided to write his name in. Either Boyle or Kelley will have their name on the November ballot, depending on the outcome in August. mparnell@fbnewsleader.com structures.

Near drownings in pools reported ANGELA DAUGHTRY News-Leader A 62-year-old man was in critical condition after a near drowning in a pool on First A venue in Fernandina Beach, according to a city police report. Police responded to 3978 First Ave. at 3:36 p.m. Saturday after Martha Hayden Self, 55, called 911 when she found her boyfriend, Richard Lewis M oser, face down in the pool and unresponsive. Self told police she tried to hold Mosers head out of the water after finding him, but could not get him out of the pool, so she left him there to get a phone. She then reportedly returned to the pool with t he phone and held his head out of the water as she called 911. Emergency responders got Moser out of the water and obtained a pulse after performing CPR, but he remained unresponsive, the report stated. Moser was transported to Baptist Medical Center Nassau and was in critical condition, according to the attending doctor, the report s tated. S elf told police Moser was a heavy smoker and had consumed a pint of liquor and half a bottle of wine in the hours before the incident, according to the report. Self also said she had taken her dog for a walk a round 3 p.m. while Moser w as in the pool, and r eturned 20 minutes later to find him face down with his feet toward the bottom of the pool. Self reportedly was not a ware that Moser had any serious medical conditions. B aptist Medical Center Nassau declined to give any information or updates on Mosers condition Tuesday morning. A nother near drowning occurred around 11:30 a.m.J une 21 at the Days Inn on Sadler Road, when a J acksonville woman in town for a family reunion was found face down on the bottom of the pools deep end, according to a police report. T he report said a male guest at the hotel tookC athrine McMurray, 36, out of the pool when McMurr ays cousin found her in the deep end after she noticed her missing from the area. The man performed CPR on McMurray along with his s ister-in-law, the report stated. A ccording to the report, McMurray was expelling w ater by the time emergency rescue arrived. She was unres ponsive but reportedly had a pulse and was breathing on her own. She was transported to Baptist Medical Center Nassau. Hotel staf f reported McMurray had been stumbling and had slurred speech when she entered the lobby between 10:30 and 11 a.m., p olice said. A ccording to the report, M cMurray had water in her right lung but there were no other signs of trauma. McMurrays cousin told police she may have been under water for 10-15 minutes. adaughtry@fbnewsleader.com T T h h e e N N e e w w s s L L e e a a d d e e r r o o f f f f i i c c e e w w i i l l l l b b e e c c l l o o s s e e d d F F r r i i d d a a y y i i n n o o b b s s e e r r v v a a n n c c e e o o f f t t h h e e I I n n d d e e p p e e n n d d e e n n c c e e D D a a y y h h o o l l i i d d a a y y !

The front cover of this years Rich States, Poor States report contains two starkly different photographs a keenly landscaped fount ain in downtown Charlotte, and a desolate street corner i n Chicago. Two major cities with major differences in their economic outlooks. The report is published annually by the A merican Legislative Exchange Council, pioneered by revered economist Art Laffer. The non-part isan organization ranks the 50 states by economic performance and outlook, using various m etrics like tax rates, regulat or y burdens and labor polic ies. Clearly, Laffers group promotes low taxes, small gov ernment and less regulation. So states utilizing an opposite formula rank toward the bottom of the list for economic c ompetitiveness. I n the 2014 rankings, Utah t ook the top spot with the brightest economic outlook, along with South Dakota and Indiana. Also of note are North Carolina and Michigan, which had substantiali mprovements in their econ omic pictures. The big stor y is that fun damental tax and fiscal policy reforms significantly improved their economic competitiveness rankings, says Jonathan Williams, t he director of the ALEC. The states are now betterp oised to realize economic growth. At the bottom of the rankings are Illinois, Vermont and New York (even though New York has attracted a surge of new businesses by offering t ax-free zones). Florida was ranked No. 16 in terms of itse conomic outlook. In Florida, Gov. Rick Scott has touted lower taxes and l ess regulation to attract new i ndustry and businesses. S cotts efforts have helped to dramatically reduce the unemployment rate in Florida from 11 percent in 2009 to 6.3 percent today. Laffer believes there is a distinct correlation between e conomic policies and econ omic gr owth. He contends t hat a confluence of lower taxes, sound labor policies and spending restraints produces superior economies among the states. A co-author of the report, economist Stephen Moor e of t he Heritage Foundation, says t hat states are taking respons ibility for their own economic success and not waiting for dir e ction fr o m the federal government. The short story is these states are leading the way in pro-growth, economic reforms. L affer has an impressive resume. He served on theR eagan Administrations economic policy advisory board and is co-chairman of the Free Enterprise Fund with CNBC host Larry Kudlow. He also is credited with d eveloping the Laffer Curve theory, which correlatesl ower tax rates with maximum tax revenues for governments. This is converse to m any popular beliefs and princ iples. M any of the top-ranked states are employing these lower-tax, less-spending approaches and they seem to be working. Other highly ranked states include North Dakota (benefiting f rom the shale oil/gas b oom), as well as Geor gia and T exas. However, Texas has dropped in the 2014 ranking. While Texas continues to lead the nation in job growth due to a similar energyr elated stor y as the Dakotas t he r eport apparently r eveals that the outlook isnt q uite as bright for the Lone Star State.

One of my early mentors would stress that, when cons idering important business and life decisions, worry less a bout the upside as the upside usually takes care of itself and m ore about protecting the downside where the real damage can occur. My experience is that most business executives, unlike politicians, usually explore the downside before making ad eal. However, when they dont, because the deal lookss o attractive, they may pay a stiff price. One example to r emember is the 2008 Bank of America purchase of Countrywide Financial. In this case, Ken Lewis, Bank of America CEO, seeing Countrywide Financials weak position, pounced and purc hased Countrywide for what he believed was a very attract ive price, $25 billion. Unfortunately, no price was worth making the deal. Six years later, Bank of America ended up taking a charge of over $20 billion in addition to billion-dollar losses, because o f legal settlements with investors, government lawsuits, fines and legal fees. As o ne director of the bank who v oted for the deal stated, It w as the worst decision ever made. However, in the political arena, exploring the downside rarely seems to take place. Political leaders seem most interested in pleasing their c onstituents and therefore just g etting the deal, which they t hen spin for the public, who end up many times paying the stiff price. In many of the public arena union negotiations, the government officials are intent on avoiding strikes and reaching agreements that look good on paper The union agrees to accept lower w ages, which are e asy to quantify by gett ing the government officials to give in on items like tenure, 30year-out pen-s ion plans andu ncapped health plans w hich are impossible to quantify. Major cities, Chicago and Detroit and now Jacksonville, agreed to pension programs that ended up threatening or killing their economies. In New York it is hard to imagine w hat crime a teacher can commit in order to get fired. A s bad as these deals appear, they pale in comparison with decisions world leaders continue to make. Whether it is the Affordable Care Act, the Dream Act or decisions regarding Iraq, S yria, Kosovo and Vietnam, world leaders make decisions to please certain constituents w hich never seem to consider t he downside. T wo recent d ecisions that appear to have major downsides are the Bergdahl trade and the decision to withdraw American soldiers from Iraq. In the Iraqi withdrawal the leader who should have considered his c ountrys downside rather t han his ego was Nouri AlM aliki. One aspect of protecting your downside concerns building relationships with your adversaries. As Don Corleone said in the Godfather, Keep your friends close but your enemies clos er. Many Teamsters leaders, with whom I worked hard to b uild relationships, were not people I wanted to befriend. I d idnt expect them to change their stripes but we needed t hem to keep us informed, consider our needs and not take actions just to spite us. In Bob Gates book Duty one area he credits George Bush and criticizes President Obama is around buildingr elationships with difficult leaders (e.g., Hamid Karzaia nd Al-Maliki). As with his Republican adversaries, P resident Obama does not build relationships and, Gates indicates, he treats leaders like Karzai with disdain. Therefore, he never develops trust and may even develop animosity. Unfortunately, one d ownside of these actions is that leaders dealing with P resident Obama may act out of distrust or spite, even if the downside hurts their constituents. So the moral of the story is that when making a decision,a deal or buying something, r egardless how cheap, whether its a house, a car or a business, make sure you cons ider protecting your downside. Not doing so can lead to disaster. Even if you buy a c ompany or house for nothing, if the losses or liabilities, a s in the Bank of America case, are substantial and you c ant figure out how to limit them, you will be a big loser. The same thing is true of other decisions. It is easy to make quick decisions which initially please your constituents, family or friends buti f you have not thought through what may go wronga nd how you can stop the bleeding, you may soon be v ery sorry. In addition, your allies will quickly forget they once were pleased you made the deal.

These regions are responsible forn early 90 percent of the purc hase of Florida homes by i nternational buyers. According to the report, i nternational investment in Floridas housing market is a g ood way to increase tax revenues and provides the opportunity to attract more international business to the state. International homebuyers not only bolster Floridas h ousing market, they also impact Floridas economy a s a whole , said Jerry D. Parrish, Florida TaxWatch chief economist. The sale of Florida homes to international investors increases tax revenue, provides the opportunity to expand tourism, a nd diversifies the state economy with global expos ure.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 7A W EDNESDAY J ULY 2, 2014 OPINION News-Leader VOICE OF THE PEOPLE J J u u d d g g m m e e n n t t The News-Leader published r ecently a feature announcing my appointment to serve as Nassau C ounty Circuit Judge (April 30 been serving here since mid-May. I consider myself privileged to sit in the old historic cour thouse in down town Fer nandina Beach. T he old courthouse, as many k now was r estor ed with car eful a ttention to every detail. Built in 1891, it stands as a functioning and pr o ud monument to the rich and deep history of Nassau County. This lovely old well-appointed building with original wood floors and high ceilings is a testament of the com m itment of the people of Nassau C ounty who r espect, r ever e and e ndeavor to preserve the historical structures of its past. Currently serving Circuit Judge Robert M. Foster, who sits in Yulee, was heavily invested in the restoration. I suspect most ever yone has made a visit to the old cour thouse but if you havent the doors are open to the visiting public. W alk up to the s econd floor and invite yourself into the old courtroom. The courtroom is only in use if theres a jury trial, which happens, if at all, one week of the month. My chambers and office ar e dir ectly acr o ss from the courtroom. I am honored to serve as circuit judge in Nassau County and hum b led to put my tiny pebble on the deep and wide beach of its notable history. Thank you, News-Leader for letting folks know I was on the way Thank you, ever yone, for the warm and gracious welcome I have received. Judge Suzanne Bass N assau County Circuit Court C C i i t t y y g g o o l l f f c c o o u u r r s s e e I r ead with inter est about how the city continues to suffer losses at the airpor t and at our local public golf club. Regar ding the airport, I cer tainly hope the hare-brained idea of constructing a massive Welcome Center has been laid to rest. What were the city commissioners thinking? Sure, some of the funds would come fr om grants, but do they r eal ly think this would improve the lot of most citizens? The golf course issue is more complicated. For sur e, usage suffered due to weather and decades of deferred maintenance that can hardly be blamed on Billy Casper Golf. This resulted in countless people joining the one local alter native, Amelia River. However, greens fees for the casual user at the latter can be very steep, and the city must have an alternative for existing residents and to attract newcomers as well. But who says it needs to be 27 holes? Selling the whole pr oper ty as one commissioner suggests, would be shor tsighted, but hiving of f at least nine holes to raise funds should be explor ed. Not only would this raise funds to retire or at least r educe the debt, but ongoing main tenance would also come down. Andrew Watson Fer nandina Beach P P o o r r t t e e x x p p a a n n s s i i o o n n ? ? I have received notice (again that the Port of Fernandina wants to expand their operation into the Historic District for a parking lot. Really? Just a parking lot can that be so bad? For those of you that might not remember, this has been an ongoing drive by the Por t Authority to expand their facilities. When the Port was first constructed, the city was promised that the Por t would not need to expand, that it was just a postage-stamp-sized operation, and that they would show respect to the Historic District. Then, the next move was that ofc losing Calhoun Street and expanding southward another block whate ver happened to that pr omise? Broken? Misinterpreted? You decide. Now the Port claims to need a parking lot, and that they are being forced by the Feds to make it happen. Believe that? Do you believe that there are no other alternatives than busting their facilities into the Historic District, vir tually cutting of f the north end from the south? Do you think that out of the 16 acres they already have, that they cant find a place to park a few cars? Arent there closer commercial lots that could be used? No, this is not out of need, this is out of convenience and a lar ger plan to keep expanding the Port. W ell, that means jobs! Really? There is likely no other facility in the county that has 16 waterfront acres, and only 60 employees. The Port has fallen on hard times with the r ecent loss of its major customer While I do not profess to know the daily operations, one only needs to look at the facilities and see that they are not a third as busy as they were two years ago. Even the Friendly Road facility is practically empty now. But, they still want to expand. OK, let s look at what they ar e asking for: Not only a zoning change, but a change in the ver y Future Land Use Map itself. They are asking for a business use zoning: PI-1 from the residential use zoning of R-2. Look to the future. Should the Port Authority fail at running this port heaven forbid lose their tenants and decide to change the use to hotels and commerce, what will be the permitted uses then? Just a parking lot? Oh no, much more than that. Buildings, storage lots and more. Y ou see, this is just another con sideration for the city leaders what will the future hold for the Historic District? When we allow industr y into the ar ea, and dont diligently contain it to the promised limits, the Historic District will be taken apart piece by piece. The planners may very well approve this use. They are working fr om a set of guidelines that dont consider the heart and soul of our town. The HistoricD istrict has been hurt enough by non-conforming structures, and p oorly planned ventur es these lost parts of the Historic District will never return, and we lose just one more little piece every year what then? I would ask the planners and commissioners to think about the futur e of our Historic District when considering this change of use. I think most of us know that the futur e belongs to tourism and r elated industries. Let s not kill the Golden Goose. While I do not begrudge my friends at the Port Authority their desire to expand into the Historic District, I am pr etty much convinced that they can solve this parking need within the ar ea they alr eady have. The risk here for this expansion is just too sever e for our little town. Chuck Hall Fernandina Beach D D a a r r k k h h o o u u s s e e s s There is a phenomenon called dark houses that is happening right now on Amelia Island and in Nassau County families who have had their electricity and water cut off due to lack of payments. The law requires adequate nighttime shelters to not be included as homeless and this doesn t meet the standar d. The organizations that are supposed to help r outinely run out of funding and turn families away. We must work to ensure that everyone has power and water, and does not go through what I myself have lived with, right here in this city called Fernandina Beach. Chris Bowen Fernandina Beach S S l l o o w w n n e e w w s s d d a a y y ? ? The tasteless early bird special (almost 1.5 years early on the Presidential Election Clock) served up by the Great Communicators mean little jelly bean, Michael (Reagan heart about out national diet of political slop. I cant be the only NewsLeader subscriber wishing to savor homegrown features, news and opinion dished up by locals, for locals, about locals and local issues. National syndicated columnists b ought and paid for by special interest groups can book lodgings here, p atr onize our restaurants, buy a few T-shirts here, and rent local space in which to hold forth. Then, and only then, should they qualify for NewsLeader column inches. But only on a slow local news day. Debby Ar nold Fernandina Beach In the 2008 election the Republicans knew that they had no candi date that could defeat Hillary Clinton. In the upcoming 2016 election its a case of same song, second verse. In 2008 the strategy of the Fox was to keep Hillary out of the briar patch (the election ou r emember the Stop Hillary Express. The idea was that if Hillar y could be kept from winning the Democrat primary, then it would be a piece of cake for almost any Republican to defeat the Democrat nominee. They could defeat anyone the Democrats put up; someone like, say, Barack Obama. How did that work out for them? They may now be saying, Oh no! I could have had a Hillary In a column on June 25 that Fox, Michael Reagan, has come up with a reverse psychology strategy to keep Hillary out of the briar patch. He said for the Democrats to go right ahead and throw her into the primar y and nominate her. The idea is that she has so much baggage (see cartoon by Taylor Jones which accompanied the article) that when she is nominated almost any Republican nominee could beat her. I dont think this will fool any Democrat, but the Republicans ar e desperate. After all, the Fox did prevent her nomination in 2008, resulting in the election of Barack Obama. In an attempt to atone for their sins the Republicans ar e thr eatening to bring a lawsuit or even impeach the president. How do the words Pr esident Joe Biden sound to you? At least he was right on the Iraq War. Phil Mayberry Fer nandina Beach Close the golf course F ernandina Beach Commissioner J ohnny Miller asked an appropriate quest ion last week: Im wondering if we need a golf course at all. What service are we actually providing? Im wondering too. When our municipal course was first built decades ago, golf was a gr owing activity for Americas middle class and rep-r esented a major step in providing recrea tion to residents and visitors alike. It was t he first golf course on the island. Today, there are six courses on the island (two mor e just four miles away in Yulee), attracting visitors from all over. But they dont come to play the cityc ourse, which has declined w ith time and poor man agement, and now serves only to provide relatively inexpensive golf to a r ela tively well of f par t of the population in the city. If we could make money on the enterprise, w hich we dont, things would be different. B ut we lose money on our golf course every year, requiring a subsidy from city taxpayers, and the losses are even greater if infrastr uctur e needs ar e factor ed in, which they usually ar e not. The fact is, our golf course stands to cost us millions of dollars in the future that we simply dont have. Its time to fish or cut bait, or hole out, I suppose, to use appr opriate lingo. My pr oposals: Sell or lease the course to a private entity, which would then take full responsibility for managing it, including pr ofits and losses. Close the course and conver t it to other recreational uses, or consider selling part of it for residential development. Rather than this bastard form of privatization we now have, wher e the city still pays employee salaries and too lar ge a shar e of other expenses, consider a long-ter m lease. For example, we could offer a 99-year lease to a private golf company, which could then improve the course as necessary build a new clubhouse if it wants at its expense. The company would pay the city a modest annual fee, keep all pr ofits and the city would keep the land and all improvements at the end of the 99 years. If a company can t be found to pay a decent price to buy or lease the course, then be rid of it. My preference would be to take the entire property and convert it to other, preferably passive, recreational purposes. That would keep it green and pr eser ve it for people and wildlife to use. But we could consider selling a piece of it for private development if voters agr ee to the plan. And our city charter requires that voters must approve any sale of recreational property. If a case is successfully made for residential development on part of it, and voters approve, so be it. W e must be car eful not to allow pr opos als for alternative uses and there are sure to be some wacky ones, this being Fer nandina derail us fr om the task at hand: Get the city out of the golf course business. However we go in the future, the current path is unsustainable. It is not fair to those of us who pay city taxes and don t play golf to continue subsidizing those who do. If the course cant pay its way and Ive seen no evidence in the past 12 years that it can then let s be rid of it. Golf is not a public necessity. Those who play golf have plenty of local alternatives. The city has greater needs for its money, time and attention. Let s putt out and move on. Michael Parnell is Editor of the NewsLeader mp arnell@fbnewsleader.com BILL SCHORR/CAGLE CAR TOONS All of my family, friends and students know that my favorite rock group of all time is the B eatles. Yes, I was watching the Ed Sullivan Show that Sunday night in 1964, anxiously a waiting the American debut of the group Id heard so much about. They didnt disappoint. I was mind-drifting in the garden the other evening about their song, I Should Have Known Better humming it and quietly singing a few verses, all the while wondering how I could relate it to politics, generally, and t he political decision-making process specifically. Really? Nah, but I was in the garden and I was allowing myself to mind-drift, and I was humming and singing Beatles songs; relating t hem to politics, not so much. As I write this column, though, it occurs that you can relate that particular song to the political decision-making process; consider: Ronald Reagan should have known bett er than to listen to the con guys selling supply-side economics. If you had told him that at t he end of his time in Washington he would have created more debt than all other presid ents combined Washington to Carter he might have told them to go away, rightly. Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy should have known better than to send American military advisors to Vietnam. P resident Johnson should have known better than to escalate the conflict and President N ixon should have known better than to continue it. Americans should know better than to t olerate leaders who get us involved in foreign civil and religious wars. Segueing to ... President Bush II oh, where do I begin should have known better than to invade I raq, his preemptive war that lasted seven years, costing roughly $300 million a day all un-funded. One of his advisors described the decision to go to war this way, It would be like the J apanese attacking us at Pearl Harbor and in r esponse, we decide to invade Mexico. Enough s aid. Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Legislature should have known better than to refuse federal dollars relating t o the Affordable Health Care Act. Its tough to go out on t he campaign trail claiming to be a compassionate cons ervative when you consciously reject a plan and deny health care coverage to thousands and thousands of your constituents. He does, though, without embarrassment. County and city officials should have known better than to listen to pro-growth advoc ates braying about the need to lure more and more people to the county, the island and the c ity: Terra Pointe 27,000 new homes, really? Crane Island a couple hundred new homes on a pristine island what? More and more events planned for downtown and the beaches oooooooo! W e all know that hindsight is 20/20 and that it doesnt do much good to go back in t ime and lament decision-making that was obviously flawed, but what happens if that f lawed decision-making continues? Supply-side economics has been thrown on t he trash heap of unworkable theories, but it is p ulled out and dusted off from time to time by s ome well-meaning libertarian or Tea Party activist only to be thrown back on the trash heap by once-bitten Americans. Our leaders continue to involve us in foreign civil and religious wars, justifying our m eddling by regurgitating the old, old worn out phrase Our best interest. The good n ews is that, according to the polls, most Americans simply arent listening anymore. M y fear is that one of these days the cause will be in our best interest and we, thoroughly desensitized by decades of smoke-and-mirrors fakery, wont listen. Gov. Scott continues, unashamedly, his p olitical makeover: hating and de-funding public education four years ago to loving public e ducation today; completely uncaring regarding Floridas environment four years ago to p retending to care about Floridas environment today, etc. It is dismaying and completely discouraging to know that our choices in November for governor will be Rick Please believe me, Ive been converted Scott or C harlie Ill be whatever you want me to be Crist. I hope theres a space for other L ocally, the braying of pro-growth advocates continues, louder than ever, more strid ent than ever, and why not, they are listened to. They are listened to, unburdened by having to respond to thoughtful and enlightened questions, questions like: What about infrastructure? How will 27,000 new homes impact the A IA corridor? What about schools? What about ground water? O r, Thers no parking downtown now and we want more and more people? Or, Public b each accesses are overflowing with cars now, whats happened to public access? W hew! Im torn should I go back to the g arden and start humming Barry McGuires Eve of Destruction, or should I sing a few verses of the Monkees Im A Believer? I think Ill do both.

The bridge over the St. Marys River on US 17 at the state line will remain closed until mid-July, according to the Florida Departm ent of Transportation (FDOT A fter more than a year of major renovation work, the bridge still requires another coat of paint, a clear coat topping and time to dry. Recent rain showers have interrupted sanding and brushw ork, said a spokesperson. The project is nearing c ompletion as long as the weather holds up, said FDOT Public Information Officer Ron Tittle. But the project missed the June 30 deadline, he said. FDOT closed the bridge in A pril 2013 for the $3.5 million renovation project. The work included replacing and fixing damaged steel and refurbishing mechanical components of the bridge. T he project was expected to take 330 days to complete, allowing extra time for weather delays, holidays and unforeseen technical issues. Tittle said in an email message last week that more help is being called in to finish the job. Additional workers were brought in by the contract or to finish up the sanding, which is often by hand, said Tittle. Kiewit Infrastructure South Co. out of Tampa handled the project, said Tittle. The St. Marys River bridge w as built in 1927 and carries an average of 8,600 vehicles a d ay. mmaguire@fbnewsleader.com FBHS, Gator Bowl pact due School to get $10,000 a year for 6 years to host practices MARY MAGUIRE News-Leader F ernandina Beach High School is close to signing a deal t o host practice sessions for one of the college football teams playing in the Gator Bowl over the next six years. Under the agreement, the s chool would receive $10,000 each year for six years. T he agreement is scheduled to begin with the TaxSlayer.com G ator Bowl, which is scheduled for Jan. 2 at EverBank Field in Jacksonville. The announcement was made June 25 at the monthly m eeting of the Tourist Development Council (TDCe vent organizer. e started discussion six m onths ago and were looking to bringing the players here, said Rick Catlett, president of G ator Bowl Sport. Its exciting. Catlett said the school was selected because a team has made plans to stay at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort during their trip to the game. W hile it is too early to say who is playing, Catlett said thef ootball team would be a school playing in the Big 10, the ACC o r the University of Notre Dame. A competing team has inked a deal to stay at the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort and Spa i n Ponte Vedra. Both teams want a resort e xperience and the beach, said Catlett. Previously, one of the teams stayed in downtown Jacksonville. This gives all the players the chance to relax at the water and play golf, he said. C ollege football players have the time and the money to play golf? Oh, yes. Only 15 percent of the players live below the poverty line, said Catlett. You might be surprised, most players are m iddle to upper middle class. FBHS athletic director Ken R oland says the money will be used to upgrade the athletic f ield. He said work is already under way, and he is excited to be hosting the team. Its a priceless experience for our players and students, s aid Roland. But the Gator Bowl execut ive said at the TDC meeting that all team practices would be closed to the public. They like to keep prying eyes out, but we expect theyll host a special practice day for high school coaches and teams, said Roland. Its a lot of f un. Sometimes the teams leave equipment behind like weights, and of course well be upgrading our fields. Roland, who has been the schools athletic director for 32 years, said the team is expected t o practice at the school from Dec. 26-31. Im not sure what the plans are yet for New Years Day, s aid Roland. Event officials say that the school must provide and pay f or any needed equipment, such as goal posts or lifts to see the f ield from above, though Roland said he doesnt expect to buy a ny. And if he does, he said, he will reach out to local businesses for financial support. Roland said the school hosted Gator Bowl practice sessions in the 1990s for South Carolina and Michigan. e know the drill, he said.

M ost visitors to Amelia and its neighboring islands think only of the beach. Thats where the fun is, thats where the waves soothe us with their rhythm, thats where the sun rises, the s ands heat up for sunbathing and the water beckons us fors wimming and surfing. But those of us who live here and enjoy nature are also well aware of the charms of the backside of our i sland, those salt marshes that separate us from the m ainland to the west. This side of the island nourishes t he sea life in the waters around us. And this side of the island has its own particular natural beauty. At sunset this beauty is s pectacular. Anyone with a camera is bound to get great s unset photos as the light changes to shades of yellow, o range and red, and the sun finally slips below the horizon. Having sunset beverages at the Salty Pelican on Front Street is an evening ritu al for many residents who seek this view and a walk a round our marina at sunset affords great shots of sailboats silhouetted by the setting sun. B ut what I enjoy most about the backside of our i sland is the marine life I find t here at low tides. Take fidd ler crabs for instance. If you find a muddy spot at low tide on the marsh side of the island most likely you will see fiddler crabs. Named for the large single claw of the males, these active crustaceans r etreat to holes they burrow i n the mud when they are dist urbed. But if you watch them fr om a distance, with binocu lars especially, you can enjoy their antics. During br eeding seasons the males wave their o verly large claw in the air to a ttract nearby females. Those males with the best claw display eventually lure a f emale into their holes f or mating. Its all fun to watch. But what is even better is k nowing that when the t ide rises again and these creatures are b elow water, they provide a solid link in the food chain leading to predators like redfish, black drum and sheepshead that fishermen l ove to snag. Tiny saltwater snails are a lso found around rocks at low tide. Although these s mall snails are inconspicuous they are vital to the food chain and help fill the stomachs of hungry shorebirds. When you visit a salt marsh y ou may not see these snails, except at low tide, but you m ost certainly will find the herons and egrets that they attract. One particularly interesti ng stretch of the backside of Amelia Island is found just n orth of the North End Boat R amp. A sign on this stretch o f shoreline reminds you that this is state park land and as such r e quires an admission fee you can pay at the ranger station in the park unless you have a yearly pass. But once you have legal access to this s tretch, at low tide, the scenes a re fascinating. F or one thing, this area was the dumping ground for tons of ballast stones fr om older seagoing vessels. Instead of using water to sta bilize the hulls, in decades l ong past sailors filled their hulls with stones and discarded them when their cargos were full. And many of these large stones from Europe and the northern U.S. ended up on the west side of Amelia I sland near Fort Clinchs river campground where they forma n unusual-for-our-area rocky coastline. If you walk up this beach from the North End Boat Ramp parking lot at low tide y ou will see what I mean. You can find many different types o f heavy rocks and some large chunks of brickwork t hat now form a shelter and habitat for rocky shoreline grasses and critters that you cannot find elsewhere on our island. Please do not r emove any rocks or objects from this designated historic al site and leave them for others to enjoy. I f you live in or otherwise have access to the Omni Amelia Island Plantation, there is also a great marsh and mud area at Drummonds P oint, where low tide reveals fiddler crabs, snails and other l ow tide marine life. Or, further south in our island chain, stop by Kayak Amelias location on Simpson Creek at low t ide and look for marsh critters in the muddy substrate b eneath the dock. W herever you go in our s alt marshes you are also sure to see birds that depend on these food sour c es, and great sunsets too. The marine life on the backsides of our islands may be inconspicuous but it provides the foundation f or many of the things we e njoy in our natural island w orld.

R R e e n n t t a a l l s s c c a a m m According to a Nassau County Sheriffs Office report, a Yulee man lost $2,400 in an Internet scam involving a rental p roperty. Using the website Hotpads. com, the victim reportedly submitted his information when he linked to a residence he was interested in. On completing the online application, he was informed that he was approved for the residence and was instructed to wire money to Donette Hughes. The victim subsequently wired $1,600 to Hughes in early June, according to the report. Hughes then requested that the victim wire an additional $800 for residential keys a nd insurance, which the victim did on June 13, the report s tated. According to the report, the victim never received the keys to the residence and continued to contact Hughes about the problem. Eventually, the victim was informed by a real estate agent that the residence was already o ccupied and that the tenants had obtained the rental through a company called Invitation Home. The victim demanded a refund from Mr. Hughes in the amount of $1,900, according to the report, but Hughes did not respond to the request. The v ictim said during his conversations with Hughes, he noticed Hughes might have had a Haitian accent. According to the report, the victim had no other details about Hughes, and did not know if Hughes had any ownership of the residence, or any employment with Invitat ion Home. F F a a c c e e b b o o o o k k f f r r a a u u d d A Bryceville woman was out nearly $2,000 after receiving and cashing two fraudulent cashiers c hecks from a woman she met on Facebook, according to a J une 22 police report. The woman told police she met a woman named Amy Harris on Facebook a year ago and considered her as a friend and trustworthy, even though they had never met, the report stated. A cashiers check was m ailed to the woman by a Jessica Gilmore, to be sent to Amy Harris, who told the victim she was doing humanitarian work in Nigeria and that the check was from her employer. Harris asked the victim to deposit the check in her a ccount and send her the money through MoneyGram to Mr. Awofisoye Olayinka in Nigeria, in the amounts of $750 on June 13 and $1,000 on June 15. On June 17, the victims bank told her the check she had cashed was fraudulent and that she owed the bank $ 1,944.23, placing her account into delinquency. The cashiers check had a business name printed on it called Oinmar, with an address of P.O. Box 1750, Winston-Salem, N.C. The vict im told police she believed Harris told her she was e mployed by Oinmar. The check was also made payable through Citizens Community Credit Union, Devils Lake, N.D., according to the report. The victim also reportedly told police she had contacted Harris and asked for her pers onal information, so that Harriss employer could reimburse her the lost money, but Harris would not comply with her request.

MEGNA For the News-Leader Seniors vs. Crime in Fer nandina has received several cases in recent weeks r egar ding phone calls (unwant ed) telling seniors he or she has won money One of these making the local rounds will be a phone call from scammers telling the individual has won an amount of money. All you do is go to designated local merchant and ask for a Gr een Car d. The scam mer will have you believe that by getting a Gr een Car d you will r eceive money By purchasing the so-called card, you have to pay. It is the scammers way of illegally receiving money from the victims and no chance of recovery of money. In fact, once you purchased your money is gone, most likely to some foreign country and cashed. Scammers can and do collect money from our seniors. Even an innocent phone call, telling you money is waiting for you, sometimes from a contest that you may or may not have entered, that you won. How do they know? Personally, I have received these calls they sound good (if you can understand the caller). Our advice: hang up! Even when you r eceive a let ter from a national company or organization, chances are you have been picked for a scam. The best way sometimes is the r ound basket or check out the company on your computer: go to Google, check the company and its r ecor d. Call Seniors vs. Crime at 3103226, or write svcfbfl@gmail. com. The office, located at the Fernandina Beach Police Department, 1525 Lime St., is open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. T uesdays and Thursdays.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK A mberjack, kings and cuda biteWhile navigating past the St. Marys NJ-2 jetty buoy, Capt. Kenny Crawford sighted a big school of menhaden holding just north of the buoy. Bringing his 33-foot Contender charter fishing boat off from plane and then slowly idling closer and closer to the big school of baitfish, first mate Matt Farlow readied the boat's large menhaden net. "Matt made one cast over the school of menhaden and we soon had enough live bait for our afternoon of offshore live bait trolling," Crawford said. "The live baits were a perfect size too for catching big kings, cobia and a wide variety of Amelia Island trolling gamefish. "After a 30-minute run to the FA fish haven, we soon set out a productive spread of live menhaden with two live baits rigged to downriggers and also three live baits fished right on the surface. "During our three hours of trolling, we were constantly hooking up to a variety of trolling fish, including kingfish, bonito, Spanish mackerel and barracuda. One of our guests hooked a real nice kingfish that pulled the hooks right at the boat." At the end of their fourhour fishing charter, Crawford arrived back at the Fernandina Harbor Marina with seven kingfish to just over 20 pounds and one bonito that was destined to be red snapper bait. The offshore fishing has been nothing short of spectacular during the past few days with a variety of striking fish being caught, including kingfish, cobia, Spanish mackerel, amberjack and barracuda. Large schools of menhaden have been holding just off from the St. Marys north jetties, making it real easy to secure enough live bait for a full or half day of offshore live bait fishing. Large schools of menhaden have also been schooling at the southern tip of Amelia Island and along the pristine beaches of Cumberland Island. Some of the more productive trolling waters in recent days for king mackerel have been FA, HH, AH and the Nassau live bottoms. The South Atlantic Fishery Management Council announced it will open a mini r ed snapper season beginning July 11 for recreational fishermen.

Recreational fishermen can keep one red snapper per day without any minimum or maximum size limits. Many area saltwater fishermen are simply dumbfounded concerning the dates that the SAFMC has designated as these same dates are set for a major run of kingfish tournaments. Many saltwater fishermen will be participating on the same dates in the Ancient City Game Fish Challenge (July 11-13) and the annual Greater Jacksonville Kingfish T ournament (July 21-26). Many saltwater fishermen prefer to troll during the heat of summer rather than to bottom fish. Also, red snapper move further offshore during the summer and are more difficult to both locate and catch. However, a good point to be made is families are on vacation during the month of July and may have their only opportunity to catch red snapper. The next major kingfish tournament will be the Ancient City Game Fish Challenge July 11-13. The popular Southern Kingfish Association-sanctioned tournament will be held from St. Augustine's Camachee Cove Y acht Harbor. For information call (904) 940-7745. Keep in mind a brand new tournament-within-a-tournament has been set for Northeast Florida kingfish teams planning to compete this summer. "This year we will hold the North Florida Kingfish Challenge," said Dave Smith of the Nassau Sport Fishing Association. "We are extremely excited about the new format that will include three events, the Ancient City Game Fish Challenge, the Greater Jacksonville Kingfish T ournament and our own Fernandina Beach Kingfish T ournament and Rodeo. "There is a $100 entry fee per event with a 100 percent payback. Also, the team that weighs in the heaviest weight of kingfish, maximum of one per tournament, will be crowned the North Florida Kingfish Champion." For information and rules, visit www.nsfafish.com.

Rieck talked about cur rent demographics for Fernandina Beach, saying its population growth has been flat for more than 10 years. While the county is projected to add about 20,000 new residents between now and 2025, Fernandina Beach will likely add some 1,100 to its population. Rieck said the median age in the city is 65, with less work-age residents and fewer childr en, which means reduced enrollment in city schools. More than 55 percent of its total taxable pr oper ty value comes from Rayonier and RockTenn, making it important for the city to diversify its economic base. Rieck said the NCEDB continues to work on targeting areas for development, including the Central Business District, Eighth and 14th streets and the airpor t.

Cheers lives on at popular watering hole A nyone that remembers the popular television show, Cheers, will e xperience a time warp when entering a cozy steakhouse bar on Amelia Islands First Coast Highway. The s how popular from 1982 to 1993 is set in a neighborhood in Boston w here a lovable cast of characters meets to drink, relax and socialize. H ard not to remember the catchy theme song with its famous reframe, where everybody knows your name. Baxters is a popular watering hole where friendliness is always on the menu. You wont find Sam behind the bar or Cliff or Norm sitting on bar stools, but you will find M ike or Kay ready to give you the d rink of your choice. At the bar m ight be Cal, Bob, Ethan, Joy or Bernie. The Big G uy and I are always greeted by M ichel Azar, owner, or one of o ur favorite waitresses. Azar came to the United States from North Syria. His loyal clientele join in his concern for his family that remains in such a d angerous part of the world. Several y ears ago Azar was able to take his wife and three sons back to his h omeland. He has realized the American dream he studied and worked hard and owns his own succ essful business. His expertise? Food and beverage. Many islanders r emember him from his years at the Golf Club of Amelia. F ate often steps in and offers an opportunity for success. In 2003 Azar was busy planning the opening of a new business that would be named the Amelia Steak House. At the same time Baxters, then a popular steakhouse with a mid-island location, came up for sale. The rest, as they say, is history. T he Big Guy and I have favorites o n the menu and our waitresses smile as we order our predictable d inners and adult beverages. They know who likes extra anchovies, tasty skinny fries or e xtra ice on the side. Monday night is a favorite for the Big G uy they always have liver. You either love it or hate it the Big G uy loves it. Tuesday is meatloaf another local favorite. We have a birthday club and as each persons birthday rolls around we share a table at Baxters. A tradition carved in stone. But above all it is a steakhouse. The meat served is USDA Certified Angus Beef. No compromises. The b eef is consistently tender, juicy and f lavorful. Choose from the Entrecte Bretel, a grilled 12-ounce New York s trip steak served with a brandy herb butter or the Henry IV, a filet mignon topped with artichoke bott om and barnaise sauce. Something simpler? My favorite the 10-ounce r ib-eye cooked perfectly medium rare. B axters feels like a club where you are always welcome, get a warm greeting, great service and well, even, somebody may know your name.

CATS ANGELS Little John was named for the Robin Hood character, because he was a guar dian and protector. Our Little John wants to be that, and more he wants to be your best friend! Hes a friendly, affectionate dog who has become a major favorite of our staf f and volunteers. Hes a big guy, perhaps a Tosa Inu mix, and about 2 or 3 years old. He probably should be the only dog in the home. He loves to go for walks, and he walks very well on his leash. He waits to do his business outside rather than in his kennel, so if hes not already housetrained we think he should be easy to train. He has gor geous hazel eyes and he loves to gaze at you with total devotion and a great, big smile. Hell give you kisses on request, too! Hes he has a beautiful fawn-color ed coat that s gr eat for petting. Little John was high-hear twor m positive when he ar rived at our shelter and we have already started his treatment. It would be much easier on him if he could r ecover in a loving home rather than in the stress of a kennel with lots of bark ing dogs ar ound. It would be wonder ful if you could foster him through his treatment, with the option to adopt him when its done. The dogs we love the most are the ones whove had a tough time in life but still love people above ever ything else, and this gr eat dog cer tainly fills the bill. Please come see him! Cassie is a true beauty, with a beautiful personality too! Shes a Domestic Medium Hair mix with a luxurious coat thats wonderful to pet, but she doesnt shed any mor e than most other cats. She loves to be petted, and even has a favorite spot wher e she loves to be scratched. She has gorgeous pastel eyes, and her luxurious black coat looks something like a lion s mane in miniature. She was born in June 2005, so she qualifies for our Seniors for Seniors pr o gram, special reduced adoption rates for senior citizens adopting senior pets. Since shes a black cat she also qualifies for a discount on TuxedoT uesdays! Y ou can see pic tures and videos of our adoptable dogs and cats at our website, NassauHumane Society.com.

NASSAU COUNTY ANIMAL SERVICES CELEBRATE AMERICA 4TH OF JULY EVENTS T he American Association for State and L ocal History (AASLH t orian and author Jan H. Johannes Sr. is the recipient of an Award of Merit from the AASLH Leadership in History Awards for his dedication to preserving and sharing the histor y of Nassau County T he AASLH Leadership in History Awards, now in its 69th year is the most prestigious recognition for achievement in the preservation and interpr etation of state and local his tory. Johanness recognition is one of 77 national awards the AASLH conferred honoring people, projects, exhibits, books, and organizations. The winners represent the best in the field and pr ovide leadership for the futur e of state and local history. Presentation of the awards will be made at a banquet during the 2014 AASLH Annual Meeting in St. Paul, Minn., on Sept. 19, sup ported by the History Channel. Jan Johannes Sr. has been involved with pr omoting the histor y of Nassau County since Americas bicentennial fever swept the countr y in the 1970s. When he noticed a lack of info on the ar eas history, Johannes scoured countless dark and dusty attics, researched newspaper archives both near and far, and conducted scor es of inter views with local residents. The result was Yesterdays Reflections, an extensively researched 366p age book containing hundr eds of photos and c olorful stories of the many Nassau County t owns and hamlets that either still exist today or have long vanished from the map. As he was finishing up his book, he and other like-minded individuals founded the W est Nassau Historical Society a nonpr ofit d edicated to the upkeep of the historic 1881 Callahan T rain Depot and to the promoting of western Nassau County history. In the 1990s, Johannes worked in Fer nandina Beach with the Amelia Island Museum of History and served on their Board of Directors. His expertise and knowledge of local history helped the states first spoken-word museum become a top-notch facility that today is one of the coun tys top stops for tourists and locals. Johannes has also penned Tidewater Amelia, a pictorial book highlighting the historic homes and buildings on Amelia and sur rounding islands and worked with internationally renowned artist William Maurer on Sketches of Amelia Island and Fer nandina Beach. In 2012, he co-edited Nassau County historian John Hendricks book, Following the T racks of Daniel Callahan. Today Johannes resides in Orange Park but is still actively involved with the West Nassau Historical Society and their cur r ent history projects. For information visit at www.wnhsfl.org.
