MARY MAGUIRE News-Leader W hile reporting a 17.2 percent drop in the countys overall crime rate,S heriff Bill Leeper also maintains that local criminal and narcotic drug activi ty is on the rise and thriving. According to an application for federal grant money that would bring almost $50,000 to his department to help fight crime, his department said t his: Nassau County law enforcement c ontinues to observe an increase in the criminal and narcotic activity. This a ctivity includes the manufacture and cultivation, sale and use, importing, transporting and exporting of illicit narcotics and subsequent ille-g al activities through and in Nassau C ounty The application maintains that in 2013, the county experienced an increase in drug arrests, fraud and larceny, and tourists, day visitors and residents are equally affected across the c ounty. Illegal drug activity adversely affects every community within Nassau County, according to the application. The drug industry thrives on both the permanent and temporary residents of the county T he drug activity has roots on the countys West Side and the problem is m oving east, according to the sheriff. The West Side of Nassau County is rural in nature and experiences labs which manufacture methamphetamine and the cultivation of marijuana. Certainly the portability and ease in manufacturing methamphetamine has a dded to the progression of illicit drugs into the East Side of Nassau County said the grant application. The application also revealed the formation of a new 16-member Special Response Team that will serve drugrelated search warrants and gatheri ntelligence on domestic and international terrorist activity. I n a phone interview on Monday, Leeper said this special unit is a reformation of the departments SWAT team. Leeper said when he took office almost two years ago, he determined that the SWAT team did not have the p roper training or equipment to do the job. So we disbanded, said Leeper. He said his office developed the Special Response Team and that it includes sheriffs deputies as well as officers from the Fernandina BeachP olice Department. Leeper said he held special tryouts l ast year for interested officers, and while he did not know off the top of his head how many city cops are participating, he did point to the teams success. $1.00 Crime down but county at war on drugs Leeper CRIMEContinued on 3A Unwelcome sign ANGELA DAUGHTR Y/NEWS-LEADER A ccor d ing to V ulcan Materials Co., owners of the abandoned Capitol Concrete plant south of the city l imits on South Eighth Street, the facility is up for sale. Concrete factory on Eighth Street an eyesore, but city, county hands tied ANGELA DAUGHTRY News-Leader W ith its numer ous tire and auto parts stores, hodge-podge of structures and tacky signage, South Eighth Street has long been consider ed something of a necessar y evil. One of the most notable eyesores along the busy road leading into downtown Fer nandina Beach is the former concrete factory that looms skyward just south of the city line. Tucked between the street and the railroad tracks, the former Capitol Concrete is now owned by the V ulcan Materials Co., a pr oduc er of crushed stone, gravel, asphalt and ready-mixed concrete with corporate of fices in Bir mingham, Ala. According to Vulcan Materials land manager Matt Arbuckle, the concrete plant was closed after becoming non-competitive in the local market after the recession str uck. V ulcan subsequently sold of f all of its ready-mix concrete plants except for the one in Fer nandina Beach. e dont have plans to re-open it, Arbuckle said. The property, he said, has no environmental issues and could be converted to another use with the proper zoning. It could also be operational again as a r eadymix concrete factory fairly quickly, Arbuckle said, and could be r un by a handful of workers. The property is now on the market and listed with Phoenix Realty Group of Jacksonville, Arbuckle said. According to Nassau County Economic Development Boar d Director Steve Rieck, he had conversations with Vulcan representatives last year when the board was looking for some easy fixes to improve the appearance of South Eighth Street. Rieck said that during his dis cussions with Vulcan representatives in August 2013 he br oached the subject of a possible brownfield designation for the former factory, but the company did not express any inter est. A brownfield is a term for a property that may need to be decontaminated befor e being developed or reused. An area must be designated a brownfield by a local government or resolution, and the owner of the property must also agree to site rehabilitation. Br ownfield pr ojects can help a community in its economic development of areas that may be consider ed blighted. State and federal loans as well as tax incentives are available for developers of sites that add jobs, healthcare facilities or affordable housing to a community. According to Nassau County Gr owth Management Dir ector Peter King, the county has been working with V ulcan r egar ding a brownfield designation so the site can be reused, but the company does not wish to participate in the program at this time. Accor ding to Arbuckle, the property was put on the market in late July. e would expect it to take at least six months to a year to find a buyer in an optimistic scenario, Arbuckle wrote in an email. The site is operational in its cur rent form and may be sold as a concr ete facility, Arbuckle wrote. The future use would be determined by the buyer and local market conditions. Arbuckle also noted the site does not meet criteria for a brownfield designation based on the information we cur r ently have. City Community Development Director Adrienne Burke said she was not entirely familiar with (the brownfield designation criteria, but said she believed the site would be eligible and a good candidate. It is definitely one of the items that got a lot of comments in our Eighth Str eet sur vey as something that needs to be addressed, Burke wrote in email. People are concerned about the impression it gives people traveling the Eighth Street corridor. I cant speak to an alternative use for the site other than that PLANTContinued on 3A How to pay for landfill?

It would relieve the ad valorem tax base, said Kelley. Kelley brought the issue to the board earlier this yearw hen the board signed a new five-year agreement with A dvanced Disposal for trash pick-up and recycling. Im aware we have a fiveyear (agreement) with Advanced Disposal ... in no way is this meant to hurt our relationship, said Kelley. The board heard from company representative Chris H agan. He acknowledged Advanced Disposals successful and long-term relationship with t he county and questioned whether franchise fees could p ut it in jeopardy Its something you have to be very careful about, said Hagan. It could affect our relationship. I dont want to harm o ur relationship. Lets be careful. H agan did not offer details. Commissioner Walter Jr B oatright said franchise fees are a tax in disguise. ou can call it a franchise fee but its just another tax, he said. Commission Chair Barry Holloway agreed. Lipstick on a pig is still a pig, said Holloway. H olloway said that costs involved with monitoring the landfill over several decades need to be addressed, but he questioned the timing. He said Advanced Disposal is doing a g ood job and keeping customers satisfied. Because the c ompany is at the start of a new five-year contract, Holloway asked if it was too soon to make plans. Are we jumping the gun? s aid Holloway. County Manager Ted Selby a sked the board to consider how to select task force part icipants. In the past the board has gone about using different ways, such as selecting people from the business community, said Selby. Commissioner Pat Edwards s aid to cast a wide net. If were going to do it, be i nclusive, said Edwards. Kelley said it would be a couple of weeks before he gets back to the boardwith a recommendation on how to organize the task force. Leeper said that in 2013 the t eam dismantled seven methamphetamine labs and that t hree such labs have been taken apart to date this year. He said the meth labs have been scattered across the county. Drug activity takes place in all areas, said Leeper. Geography contributes to t he problem. The application considers t he areas deep waterways and ocean access as well as the major roadways that run through Nassau County, including I-95 and US 1. These numerous modes of transportation that surround a nd/or encircle Nassau County provide routing for drugs, narc otics and illegal activities in Nassau County, according to the application. The grant application also notes the countys 500,000 annual tourists and 200,000 annual day visitors as well as its 75,710 p ermanent residents. While local government and b usiness leaders embrace Amelia Islands growing popularity as a tourist destination, is it also contributing to the increase in criminal and drug activity? Its hard to say, said Leeper. As our county continues to grow, the opportunities for crime will continue to grow as well. The sheriff applied for the a nnual Edward Byrne M emorial Justice Assistance G rant (JAG t o use the money in fiscal 201415, starting Oct. 1. The award a mount is $49,172.

This purchase will further a id in homeland security and p ublic safety , said the applica t ion. The money also will buy food and veterinary care for the departments drug-sniffing dogs. The K-9 team has four d ogs, four handlers and one supervisor. This team is a valuable part of law enforcement operations a nd works in tandem with the drug unit, said the application. The sheriff also is planning to pay cell phone bills and buy supplies, including pens, penc ils, notebooks, dry erase boards, video recording tapes, b atteries and a book on street drugs to help with identificat ion. According to the application, the sheriff said it would spend $13,000 on operating costs,$ 7,500 on canine care, $1,500 for office supplies, $4,000 on training and $23,172 on equipment for the Special Response Team. The sherif f did not want to characterize the seriousness oft he countys crime as it relates t o drug activity, but he said it w as less than what is happening in Duval County. Here is how the application puts it: Nassau County has waged a war against illegal dr ugs and criminal activity T he application was released p ublicly at the Aug. 6 county c ommission meeting. Under the p rogram guidelines, the grant requires approval letters from the board, as well as from other gover nments within the county including the city of Fer nandina Beach and the towns of Hilliar d a nd Callahan, since they are all participating in the program. All of the letters were signed the first week in August and then sent to the Florida D epartment of Law Enforcement (FDLE T allahassee. While the grant is a federal p rogram, FDLE distributes the money to Floridas 67 counties. The state is expected to receive more than $7 million. Last year, Nassau County received more t han $54,000. The annual grant money can b e used to fund various law enforcement programs, includi ng drug enforcement, though the Department of Justice has identified priorities and encourages officials to use the moneyf or reducing gun violence, reducing unnecessary incarceration, indigent defense and improving mental health services.

Agency Executive Director Steve Rieck said in 2012 he hoped to create through a Nassau Tomorrow effort 3,800 jobs in the county in the next five years at 135 percent o f the current annual wage, which would result in $63 million in increased consumer spending and additional property and sales taxes. Rieck asked commissione rs in 2012 for an annual comm itment of $25,000 of the citys m oney to be invested over the next five years. Commis-sioners at the time agr e ed to contribute half the $25,000 from the citys general fund and half from the airport fund. Rieck recently announced his retirem ent from the board. C ommissioners at the b udget meeting gave no real explanation for withdrawing the grant, but Mayor Ed Boner, who is on the NCEDB boar d, made mild objections. Boner also brought up an o ffer for $50,000 by Billy C asper Golf towar d greens r enovations, in exchange for an extension of five years on its contract, saying the city should consider negotiating to take advantage of the offer. The city negotiated a con tract with Billy Casper Golf in December 2010 and the company started managing thec ourse in early 2011. The course, however, has been beset with financial pr o blems connected with existing debt, plus bad weather and failing gr eens conditions. So far, the city has not officially r esponded to Caspers offer, according to CityM anager Joe Gerrity, but has b een in contact with managem ent officials on the matter. T he contract between the city and Billy Casper Golf has an initial term of five years, and an automatic r enewal of one year after that, with a max imum of two additional oneyear terms unless either partyg ives notice not to renew the c ontract. Ther e might be a way to extend the contract and allow us to oversee (the course Boner said. I hate to give away $50,000 just because they cant do a year to year commitment ... now it s our job to counteroffer. B oner said the new cont ract with Casper would also need some kind of improvement benchmark. e need to talk about reasonable goals they can meet,B oner said. T he Fernandina Mens Golf A ssociation sent a letter July 31 t o commissioners that str o ng ly recommended accepting Billy Caspers offer. Pr ojects included in the city s 2014-15 budget as of August wer e: accounting/permitting software evaluation,$ 25,000; street resurfacing, $ 50,000; final payment H umane Society r e novation, $75,000; Peck Center window replacement, $50,000; marina dr edging, $300,000; water f r o nt park, $225,000; downtown wifi, $17,000; Martin Luther King Center r estr oom r enovations, $150,000; Central Park restr oom renovation, $155,000; a nd golf course clubhouse roof, $70,000.

At a cost of about $17,000, which is part of the new city budget, the free Internet access will be available for anyo ne with wireless devices within the two blocks on either side of Centre Street, from the Fernandina Harbor Marinat o South Eighth Street, McCrary said. McCrary said in an email that users would be allocated some static amount of data access (and e xceed the data usage, theyd have to pay the provider to g et more. Aportion of those fees paid for excess data w ould come to the city This would be direct access, not linked to the citys data network at all, McCrary wrote. Ultimately, this project is intended to be a service to the public and an additional offering to our downtown experi-e nce, McCrary wrote. The hope is that sufficient revenue is generated to eventually cover the cost of providing the s ervice.
As the political season heats up, alarmists are pulling alarms ( this is what they do) to bring attention to points of contention. M eanwhile, alarmists use rhetoric instead of water to extinguish the fires of opposition. This is happening locally and on a broader scale. The most heated debate within Nassau County revolves a round whether to use a tax increase to balance the upcomi ng budget, or to use reserves. And this is a prevailing theme in the two county commission races this fall. As a financial columnist, I cannot take sides between the candidates out of fairness. H owever, as a financial advisor of 20 years, I have a knowledge o f budgets and numbers, and I can draw inferences with this background. So lets look closely at the budget issues, with each alarmist point highlighted and followed by an explanation. Alarm #1: Without a tax i ncrease, the budget could c ollapse and municipal services will decline. For a small county, Nassau is quite wealthy. A booming real estate m arket and a lucrative tourism industry help boost tax revenues. Look no farther than the growth in the county budget over the last 20 y ears as compared to population here: in 1993, the county h ad 46,000 residents and a $40 million budget. Over the last 20 years, the population has not even doubled, but the budget has increased fourfold to $155 million. Alarm #2: Without a tax increase, you wont be safe. This is my favorite of feeble excuses. Y ou are safe now, with many capable police, fire and rescue w orkers within the county. And you will be safe whether taxes are increased or not. Much of the growth in the county budget is attributable to police/fire/ rescue services, and as evidenced by the lofty numbers a bove, there shouldnt be a problem. A larm #3: Without a tax increase, the countys credit rating will suffer. Yes, the rating services look at the countys financial health to determine a credit score. However, the county has more than adequate r eserves to patch the hole (of about $10 million) in the budge t, and still have enough for future projects. According to the clerks office, emergency or safety reserves are more than adequate (even using the $10 million). Alarm #4: Without a tax increase, fire and emergency vehicles cannot be replaced ( and you will not be safe). The fleet of emergency vehicles in N assau County is impressive. Based upon inventory reports, more than $7 million has been spent on 60 vehicles, including fire trucks and water pumpers and rescue units. While some of these were purc hased years ago, there does not appear to be a shortage of a vailable units. If some of these are outdated, replacing them is a priority and there certainly should be available funds somewhere. Alarm #5: If you dont support a tax increase, you are infer ior and uninformed (at least this is what one reader said a bout me). Look, there are two sides to every political issue; you dont have to use verbal attacks to get across your point. It can be done with civility. After all, in this case, there are sizable reserves within the county government, earning little interest (due to low market rates L astly, there is also much debate over whether the count y should borrow money to pay for a new sheriffs headquarters or use reserve funds earmarked for this purpose. Creating debt, even at a low interest rate, hardly makes sense when funds are readily a vailable (because the loan has to be paid back by a future comm ission). The definition of an alarmist is a person who needlessly attempts to alarm others, as by inventing or spreading false or exaggerated rumors of impending danger. So dont be swayed b y such underhanded tactics. In fact, please employ an alarm o f your own to notify others when one comes near.

S TEVE MARKET P LACE Steve Nicklas B rown During the last election, one of my friends who did well in business advised me that he was e nthusiastic about one of the R epublican pr esidential candid ates because he came across as a regular guy. The type of guy you can have a beer with, he said. I thought my friends observations silly at best. However, I later remembered how members of the national media praiseo r damn candidates based on t heir likeability In fact, our last t hree presidents, G.W. Bush, Clinton and Obama, were elected par t ially because they appealed to people as likeable, rather than that they had the best qualifications or experience to lead the country. I n the world of sports, winn ing is the driving for ce. In the w orld of business, profits are the driving forces. However, in American politics, the driving for ce r e garding who wins or loses many times depends on what most people believe the candidate will do for them personally, rather than for the country as a whole. When c hoosing l eaders in b usiness, we based our decision on relevant experience, skills (engineering, financial,s trategic plann ing) and pr e v ious success in a leadership position. When a top financial ser vices firm asked me to join a team to evaluate their top 30 executives we put together a competencym odel to use in these evaluat ions. T he four areas were Strategic/Innovative, Results Orientation, Emotional Intelligence and Leadership. In the model, the closest we came to likeability wer e team player and builds trust under leadership, and flexibility under Emotional Intelligence. In my experience, successful leaders, whether in business, s ports or even politics, have to b e ver y tough people who think a head, make decisions and, when necessary, replace the individual who is not per f orming. Some, like Pete Carroll of the Seattle Seahawks, are personable but my sense is, like Vince Lombardi, Steve Jobs,M argaret Thatcher, Angela M erkel or Jack W elch, none ar e s uccessful because they are fun to have a beer with. In addition, no adversar y or ally will do what the leader wants, rather than what their people need, because the leader is likeable. Iran is not giving upt heir nukes because President O bama is mor e likeable than P resident Bush. In fact, the only country that gave up nukes (Libya e wor ried that Pr e sident Regan would bomb them back into the Stone Age. As expected, Israel is not going to make a deal with Hamas because John Kerry is a good guy. One of my learning experiences with the Teamsters leade rs came about because their p eople became exer cised when w e changed working conditions in a way that they felt were unsafe. They r e fused to take out the trucks until we backed off and, as one leader stated, Howard, youre a good guy but our members are pissed andt hey elect us, not you. S o what makes politics dif f erent? The truth is, as with any organization where someone is elected by the constituents, peo ple tend to vote for whom they believe is going to help their interests the most. Usually that means financial gain, but obvi-o usly it also can be cultural or s ocial. Unions also do this. That i s why, except in the few cases where the union leader was exceptionally courageous, the union allowed the company (the golden goose) to go under or leave and the people to lose their jobs, rather than take the steps needed to help the company succeed. In the long run, what is important is that other countries a dmire us and respect us b ecause we have the best econ o my, the best education system and the most effective military. People who dr e am of the old days when America and its presidents were supposedly beloved forget that in the s and early s, there were still books andm ovies like The Ugly Americ an. In other wor ds, whatever w e do, there will be countries and people, especially when our values conflict, who will be jeal ous of us and who may even hate us. Trying to please or win these people will not work and may backfire if it leads to oura llies distrusting us.

South Fletcher ... is one of the finest stretches of road in F lorida, Smith said, but it doesnt look like it. Its a world-class town, but we dont look world class, Smith said.

R esident Lewis Jordan said he wanted to hear what commissioners planned to do next after a discussion on such an important issue. I dont want a discussion this important to go nowhere, Jordan said. Im not accustomed to hearing something so i mportant and not hearing whats happening next.

The 2011 report recommended the city require Florida P ublic Utilities to spend no more money on storm hardeni ng for the present system; that FPU present to the Public S ervice Commission stormhardening plans that only involve under-grounding; and that FPU develop a plan to place all electric utilities underground by 2020. The UUC could not get inform ation from FPU about relative costs of under-grounding, a ccording to their report, but made its own estimates. Extra costs per home were estimate d to be $850 for new underg rounding and $250 for replacement under-grounding.

The full increase of 4.62 percent is scheduled to go into e ffect in January after the company holds a public hearing on the increase Aug. 20. Internal costs at FPU have increased 19 percent since the last base rate increase in 2008, Grant said, and mild weather during that time contributed to declining revenues for the c ompany. He also noted that many wooden transmission poles have b een replaced by concrete poles, and that the company has put an estimated $30 million into system replacement and r eliability improvements. The public hearing on FPUs base rate increases will be held Aug. 20 at 5 p.m. at the Atlantic Recreation Center, 2500 Atlantic Ave. Political ad paid & approved by Mike Boyle Republican Candidate for Nassau CountysDist. 2 Commission SeatVOTE August 26thTHE TRUTH IS...This is a time when many have lost faith in our institutions, and in our elected officials, because we dont believe they are telling ust he truth. To get elected, some candidates make promises they cant keep. Others make promises they dont even intend to keep. Dont be fooled by those who will tell you, in an effort to get elected, that we wont need additional revenue. They pander to your fears, instead of appealing to your intelligence. Dont be fooled by those who offer an appealing one-year financial gimmick, but have no idea how to fund the following years The truth is, the cost of everything is going up, including the cost of good government. The truth is, we can continue to watch our infrastructure and government services fail, or we can choose to move forward with a realistic and financially-sound plan. What is your vision of what Nassau County should be? What will you choose? The truth is, you should elect candidates who will be honest with you, who wonttry to fool you. You should elect candidates who will tell you what you need to hear, not just what you want to hear. The truth is, you should elect a candidate based on good character, fairness and honesty, proven judgment, extensive leadership experience, and a solid understanding of the issues that face our county government.Ipromise to tell you the truth, just as I always have. Ipromise to act with fiscal responsibility and integrity. Ihave the right qualification, and Iask foryourvote on August 26th. Thank you.

JOHN SCHERER For the News-Leader Theres no mistaking the sound of the fine-tuned engine, the clean paint and the polished c hrome passing you on the street. These sights and sounds h ave made heads turn for decades, with women swooning at the sight and guys dreaming of the lifestyle and adventures while cruisin with their best girl riding behind them, holding on tight. The American B iker, whether a weekend warrior or living the lifestyle, is legendary and in many cases a legacy passed down through the years to many who want to live to ride. After World War II, many American veterans found a replacement for the camar aderie, excitement, danger and speed of their lives in war in the motorcycle. Many of these early riders gathered together into loosely organized groups then, and created a new social institution and becamek nown as bikers. They became an American icon, the image of stature, individualism and culture, and carefree youth, g rowing up alongside names like Harley-Davidson, Honda, T riumph, BMW, Kawasaki and m any more, with each individu al vision being realized by the v ibration, breeze in your hair a nd name plate of their ride of choice. But what about these people, these riders, these bikers? Who are they and what do they stand for? Well, lets get beyond t he folklore, Marlon Brando and B movies and what you may h ave heard. I have known many motor cycle club members and individuals over the last five decades, and my vote is in: I have never met mor e people or groups of people with bigger solid gold hearts, more concernf or others than themselves, m or e patriotism and mor e will i ngness to participate in the needs of others through events and fundraising, than these tr ue American her oes ... the American Biker! Our community here in Nassau and Camden countiesi s no exception to that rule. We h ave many motor cycle clubs a nd individuals living right here and have for years bonded together to raise funds for many necessary causes that benefit many of us, rain or shine, summ er or winter, whenever the need presented itself. They c ome together from everywhere, many from outside our community, because they heard the call and felt the need. The outstanding motorcycle group sponsoring this muchneeded benefit event is led by V ietnam veteran John Recon Doc Smith, a decorated combat v eteran, a local veterans advocate and motorcyclist. John and his group of volunteers have been very active in our comm unity in organizing support and fundraising campaigns for many direct impact local causes as well as others on a regional and national basis. John is also a member of many veterans or ganizations here including the American Legion, VietnamV eterans of America Chapter 1 088, the VFW and many othe rs. The event, The Ride for Independence Benefit Poker Run, is a fundraising opportunity to support the Youth Advisor y Committee of the Florida Independent Living Council, Inc. FILC is head-q uartered in Tallahassee and is a nonprofit organization that d evelops state of Florida plan ning to develop handicapped and disabled improved services for youth and adults in 17 cen ters thr oughout Florida. They ar e partners with the Florida Department of EducationsD ivision of Vocational Rehabilit ation and Division of Blind S er v ices as well as other living centers and organizations. Molly Goslin, the executive dir ector of FILC, advised: The Y outh Advisor y Committee (YAC), a volunteer committee of FILC, is composed of disabled and handicapped youth anda dult volunteers between the a ges of 16 to 27, who actually reside in our established 17 Center communities in the state of Florida. These volunt eers, who are trained and knowledgeable through their o wn personal disabilities, advocate through local agencies to improve conditions in areas of education, access, transportation, employment, housing and many more areas. They also provide valuable reports and i nformation on the pulse of the disabled community to our o rganization to give us valuable information for our annual plan to address and find solutions for needs through the state and f ederal agencies. These dedicated individuals are an irreplaceable asset to success in providing ever improving service to disabled veterans, youth and adults in Florida, and by pr oven example, all over the country T he Ride for Independence P oker Run is being held at and i s sponsored by American Legion Post 54, 626 South Thir d St. in Fernandina Beach, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 7A W EDNESDAY A UGUST 13, 2014 OPINION News-Leader VOICE OF THE PEOPLE D D e e s s i i g g n n a a n n d d b b u u i i l l d d w w i i t t h h n n a a t t u u r r e e First, let me say I am not opposed t o economic growth and development on Amelia Island. At the same time, I read with sadness the most recent News-Leader article Soothing Ocean Breeze? (Aug. 1e developments dominate-and-destroy style of clearing to build on the islanda nd the neighbors responses. I believe there is a piece missing t hat no one mentioned. Amelia Island needs a community-based policy requiring both commercial and residential developments in both the coun ty and city to use a design and build with nature approach. One such example of such a policy is preserving asm any as possible of the existing trees t o offer wind protection, shade and c ooling, ther e by incr easing property values, in addition to beauty and appearance. When man s needs/wants intersect with nature, our community needs a reasonable, thought-filled and knowledgeable protocol for developers tof ollow that protects nature while buildi ng new str uctur es and infrastr uctur e a long with a str o ng enforcement policy to ensure that designing and building occurs with natur e For this to occur we need to: 1. V ote for county and city com missioners who mandate that devel opers use design with natur e polic ies rather than a dominate and d estr oy style of building. 2. Work with county and city staff to help them develop and strongly enforce this building with natur expectation and protocol. 3. Support this community-based policy by purchasing homes, goods and services from builders, developers, ar chitects and business owners who follow these building with nature protocols. 4. Lear n more about and familiarize ourselves with building with natur concepts. 5. Build, design, and maintain our own homes and neighborhoods using these building with nature protocols. Imagine living in the Amelia Island of the following vision statement written by a local Economic Gr owth Planning Group initially published in a News-Leader editorial by Steve Rieck in December 2011. The island of Amelia ... is a vibrant, naturally beautiful, and historic community with an attitude that recognizes and pr otects its rar e and vulnerable natural beauty and marine canopy and actually uses that focus to attract and create responsible growth and planned development. Amelia Islands abundant natural beauty and focus on preserving and enhancing its rare marine canopy, its outstanding quality of life and its safe, small town-feel encourage people to live, work, shop, play learn, visit and do business here. Amelia Island is rich in its diversity of protected natural environments and green spaces, its heritage trees and planned environmentally aware neighborhoods and buildings, and offers a wide range of employment, recreational, cultural and volunteer opportunities. W ith its abundant and wellpreserved trees, beauty, natural wonders, history and its well-planned, environmentally-inspired and innovative future, Amelia Island is annually named one of the most attractive small cities/locations in the United States. Its easy to visit, fall in love with, raise your family, live a healthy, active life, and m ake your business successful here. I want to live this vision. Please join m e. Carol Beck Fer n andina Beach F F o o o o d d N N e e t t w w o o r r k k s s h h o o w w I was disappointed to see a negative l etter to the editor published in the N ews-Leader ( Aug. 8) r egarding the F ood Network program, Eating America with Anthony Anderson, that air e d last week and featur e d Amelia Island and the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival. The program was televised nationally and was a wonder ful showcase for our community. As chairm an of the 2014 festival, I feel comp elled to clarify a few things regarding t he winners of the food contest depicted in the program. The show highlights two gentle men fr om Chicago, Scott and Brian Stevens, as serving the winning entry, Shrimp Pie. What the show did not mention, however, is that their father Gus was a member of the local nonprofit group that has been serving thisi tem for over 25 years at the festival. Gus passed away in January, but fortunately for us, Scott and Brian chose to drive 1,800 miles round-trip to continue his tradition of raising money for a group of local American heroes, the Vietnam Veterans of Nassau County. All Shrimp Festival food vendors are required to be nonprofit organizations based in Nassau County. The letter also raised concer n about the origin of their shrimp. The Shrimp Festival began over 50 years ago as friendly shrimp boat races and a Blessing of the Fleet to begin the local shrimping season. Since the festival is held each year at the beginning of the shrimping season, it is vir tually impossible to have enough truly local North Florida shrimp available to feed the tens of thousands of visitors that attend the festival. While most of our non-pr ofit vendors choose to use local shrimp when possible, the main thing the committee encourages is the use of U.S. wild-caught shrimp, which is exactly what the V ietnam Veterans of Nassau County use in their award-winning shrimp pie. I sincerely hope that Scott and Brian Stevens will overlook the negative com ments posted here and continue to join us, along with all of our wonderful nonpr ofit food booth par tners, on the first weekend of May for many years to come. Mark Deaton Fernandina 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 p p l l a a n n Another 700 semi-tractor-trailer tr ucks per day Really? What star ted off as a good idea for a few jobs is suddenly being transformed into a major port for larger-class cargo ships from around the world. The capacity of the Fernandina port is about to expand, and you don t even know about it. How will this affect your life? If you dont work for the port, then you probably won t like the changes. The antic ipated increase could be up to 700 percent over the port truck traffic you now see on the streets. If you think the truck traffic is bad on A1A now, please note that it will be worse. Much worse. The Planning Advisor y Boar d is being asked to give the go-ahead to t his plan on Aug. 13 at 5 p.m. at City H all. Some weeks afterward, the city c ommission will be asked to appr ove it. All this is happening very fast, and no one told you. On 14th Street, Eighth Street and A1A you will notice huge incr eases in heavy tr u ck traf fic. Please read the plan yourself: www.dropbox.com/s/fibmfluh6c9dm5x/OHPA Master Plan Update_June 2014 all.pdf. The plan clearly states that: Rail use is not preferred, and they will be using trucks. The larger class ships carry up to 2,400 containers. (one per truck) W etlands will be paved over for more storage space. No improvements to truck queuing is planned setback r equir ements to adjacent properties are reduced. They hope to bring business from JaxPort and others to Fernandina. The traffic can be increased by 700 percent of todays traffic. The sad notes ar e that the P AB might allow such changes. If you care about the traffic, if you want your opinion hear d, contact the P AB members and the city commission. If you dont care, then it will just happen, no problem. This isnt just a Fernandina problem now. This affects Yulee, and all points in between, too. Think about how your commute and travel will be affected. Think about how your business will be af fected. T ell your friends and family An informed public is the fair and right move. Make up your own mind, and talk to your government leaders. If you are concerned, please contact the city commissioners. Thanks for your consideration. Please r ead the new master plan. Then, consider if this is important enough for you to make one phone call or write one email.

Do you intend to offer the same number of column inches to his opponent? A rather mor e satisfactor y use of both your resources and available page space would be some attempt at serious r epor ting, particularly of an investigative nature. The News-Leader is sliding down the precipitous path towards irrelevant banality under the current stewardship. If the editorial objective is simply to be a mouthpiece for a par ticular political perspective, why not just say so? Run as many articles by the likes of the inter minably dr eary predictable Michael Reagan and his ilk as will fill your pages? Geoffrey King Fernandina Beach I r ead with dismay your r ecent front-page article entitled Kelley vs. Boyle 2. I expected that the article would contain some news on their race for the District 2 county commissioner seat, or perhaps a comparison of the two candidates biographies, records, and stance on various issues. However, instead of a news article, the piece appear ed to be mer ely a r ecita tion of Mr. Kelleys campaign literatur e. Even if a similar piece is to appear later on Mr. Boyle, the last thing we need from the News-Leader is this sort of slant piece we all get more than enough campaign literature in our mailboxes, thank you. As a subscriber I look to the NewLeader for fair, complete and accurate coverage of local events and issues, and for editorials and opinions expr essing diverse views. When those two ar e mixed, neither is accomplished. Cutting and pasting from press releases is not journalism. Chris Kirwan Amelia Island Editors note: The News-Leader traditionally has published campaign announcements pr ovided by the candid ates. Mike Boyles, Boyle vs. Kelley 2, w as published July 25 in the same spot o n the fr ont page as Steve Kelley s was last week. T T h h e e g g o o l l f f c c o o u u r r s s e e While people are giving opinions on the future of our golf course, some poorly thought or r eactionar y, some self-serving, etc., how about trying this on for size? Close the north nine and construct a par three, nine-hole course. It would take only a small part of the old nine, would cost less to maintain, while fulfilling the desire of many golfers preferring to play a shorter course. We could then create a residential area of golf course lots along the south or east side of the present west holes 5, 6, 7 and 8. These fairway lots would bring in hundreds of thousands in both lot sales, impact fees and pr oper ty taxes. It is possible that there would be enough land left to put in a small num ber of patio lots. The par three course could be made for nighttime playing, as long as the lighting wasnt objectionable to area residents. I personally think this appr oach has great possibilities, both for the golf course futur e and a r evenue source for the city As competitive as the golf course business is in our area, the par three would be something no other course offers. We could possibly create a considerable par three player base to not only play her e but live her e. When you have ideas that have to do with city pr oper ty, you need to look at sides other th an the one you might be personally invested in.

E-mail: mpar nell@fbnewsleader com. visit us on-line at fbnewsleader .com Yogi Berra is said to have said, Its deja vu a ll over again. I know what he meant, it seems as though Ive written this column before, no, I k now Ive written this column before too many times. For me, one of the joys of living in a progressive community is our commitment to the protection and preservation of public places. Evidence of that commitment is aplenty: When Main Beach Park was threatened b y development in the early 1980s, the people came down solidly on the side of protecting the P ark. The people of Fernandina Beach voted to approve a $6 million general obligation bond issue in 2001 that had as its purpose the purchase of, protection of and preservation of environmentally sensitive lands. That voterapproved bond issue facilitated the creation of t he Egans Creek Greenway, a jewel to many, indeed most, but a bane to some, a handful r eally, of perpetually unhappy souls. There has never been community consensus favoring the development of Crane Island, quite the opposite. When boomtowners talked of selling recreational lands adjacent to the golf course recently, residents flooded the commissions c hambers in protest, forcing the politically sensitive commissioners to abandon the effort. N ow, well, to modify Yogis observation, Here we go again. Some, mostly those perpetually unhappy souls who find the concept of public lands silly and offensive, want the city (us; you and metion of our recrea tional lands surrounding the golf course, and s ome of golf course itself. Their reasons, their arguments, their position is familiar; tir e d and worn out: The golf course is losing money so sell part of it. The city needs money so sell some of its land, the peoples land. The lands just s itting there, un-used so sell it and develop it. Developed l and, covered over with quaint little or big houses, concrete, asphalt and fake landscaping generates new tax dollars; undeveloped, public land generates nothing. Well, the golf course is losi ng money several hundred thousand dollars this year a lone, but thats because of an ill-conceived, phony non-privatization contract developed and entered into by a recent city commission. That maladys cure lies not in the sale of part of the course, but in allowing the contract to die a t imely death. The rest of their argument can only be u nderstood and favored by those who view our city as being only a place, not a community, not a town, just a place. See, you can exploit a place with little consequence. You can destroy wetlands, dunes, green space, parks, all for money, and few people will care. A communitys different, a towns different people care, they rise u p and wont let it happen. This latest effort is particularly odious. Boomtowners know that the peoples land cant be sold or leased long-term without voter approval, and they know that approval is unlikely. So, to get their foot in the door, to prepare the land, so to speak, theyve found a commissioner willing to offer the question in t he form of a non-binding straw ballot: People of Fernandina Beach, would you be willing to sell some of your r e creational land to developers so that nice little or big houses can replace trees, green and open space? Wont you let us cover the land you once owned with c oncrete, asphalt and fake landscaping? In other words, we want to commit an e nvironmental crime, we want to exploit your green, open space and we want you as a co-conspirator. The lie, often told, is this, Just sell us these lands and were through, we wont ask you for any more. All of your other parks, green spaces, open spaces and public accesses are s afe. A local environmental policy of appeasement, this; that proverbial slippery slope that e nsures only the re-visiting of this issue again and again. These boomtowners, these pro-growth folks are forever hungry they dont eat at the publics trough just once, they keep coming back. The islands filling up with little or big houses and it wont be long until the only develo pable land available for exploitation is yours your parks, your public accesses, your green s paces, your open spaces your land. This is deja vu all over and it will be so until we, the people of this town, this community slams the door shut on these conversations, this talk of selling our green space, our open space, our parks, our public accesses. We have to slam the door shut on those forever h ungry for that part of ourselves that keeps us from being, or becoming just a place. This s traw ballot, this trial balloon, this precursor to environmental disaster is an opportunity to slam the door shut, and if commissioners vote in favor of the straw ballot, well, they want to keep the door open, no matter what t hey say. F lorida, particularly, is littered with places to and visit. I dont know about you, but I always look for w ard to coming home to this town. Ron Sapp is a former city commissioner.

Nassau County is moving in the right direction! With a growing economy and rising opport unity the decisions that we made during the tough times have prepared Nassau County for managed growth in the years ahead. So says Barry Holloway, who currently serves as county commissioner from District 4 and as the chairman of the Board of County Commissioners. H olloway is seeking reelection to a third term, facing George Spicer, whom he defeated i n 2010. Both are Republicans. Since there are no Democrats, independents or write-in candidates seeking the job in November, the Aug. 26 election is open to all voters regardless of party affiliation. On Aug. 26 I ask for your vote to support my re-election to keep Nassau County moving in t he right direction and help to ensure that we continue to strengthen the climate for small b usiness and job growth, Holloway said in a campaign announcement. It is through the growth in small businesses that we see opportunities arise; these in turn help to strengthen our families. In service to the citizens of Nassau County I am focused on solutions, staying true to my principles and t he oath I swore to protect and defend the Constitution. To me, there is no greater responsibility than to rise in defense of our constitutionally protected rights. Keeping taxes low is e ssential to attracting new business, investment and jobs. D uring my term on the county commission we have kept the property tax rate at the same level and have rolled back spending to live with our means. Since my service on the commission began we have worked diligently to develop and maintain a plan to reduce the countys debt and I am p roud of the hard work of the entire team that has worked to ensure sound fiscal stewardship o f taxpayer resources. As of Sept. 30, 2006, bond debt totaled $98,670,393. As of Sept. 30, 2013, bond debt totaled $57,442,246. A reduction of debt of $41,228,147.

Sappho is a pretty bird and s he is proud to tell you about it. Pretty Bird, Sappho I heard a number of times during my brief visit with her. Sappho is a Moluccan cockatoo, a large parrot species witha strong biting beak, the purp orted intelligence of a twoyear-old human and a real handf ul. Ive got great memories associated with Sydney, a M oluccan cockatoo that I used to handle and show off to child ren during education programs at Marine World Africa USA during my early career. Sydney liked to be cuddled and petted by everyone, or so it s eemed. We were able to let kids feel first-hand the powdert hat their feathers disintegrate to, giving their undercoat a coati ng that they use to groom themselves. A real gentle soul was Sydney. But then there was another Moluccan cockatoo in my past, M ango. Mango was also a sweetheart of a bird belongingt o a friend of mine in St. Augustine. A number of times I v isited her and also handled and petted Mango. But then things changed. One time I was han-d ling her as usual and for whatever reason Mango suddenly started attacking my hand. A big fleshy chunk of skin was ripped off my h and, and the scar remains w ith me still. So here I was on Pam Browns porch in her h istoric house in d owntown Fernandina m eeting her companion f or 22 years, Sappho, and these previous encounters filled my head. But soon I was at ease. Sappho r epeated her Pretty Bir entreaties and happily cuddledi n Pams arms, while Pam scratched that good spot under h er neck. So calm. So happy. When Pam put Sappho back on her perch I got my courage up. Maybe Sappho is a Sydneytype Moluccan cockatoo and n ot a Mango. Only one way to find out. With a nod from Pam,I extended my right arm and Sappho climbed aboard. I even g ot to pet her neck, under the feathers where the powdery down gets deposited. Great. Justa s I was relaxing and asking Pam, Is Sappho well socialized with other people? it happened. In an instant Sappho bit my left hand, not once, but twice and P am rushed in to remove the bird from my flesh. Dont worry, Pam, its nothing. Worse things have happened to me. But youre bleeding!!! When Pam rushed off to get m e a Band-aid I was left alone with Sappho, back on her perch a gain. Pretty Bird, Sappho she said while coyly covering her b eak with her facial feathers and reaching out her foot to me i n a gesture meaning Pick me up. No way. She was trying to sucker me in again, I had no doubt about it. When Pam returned Sappho h ad a lot to tell her, all in long mumbled sentences and con-c luding with a distinct Ha Ha Ha! Pam and Sappho exchange d sentences but Pam confessed, She speaks Moluccan and I dont understand Moluccan. But even without the right words, Sapphos intentions were c lear. I was the enemy. Inside her home, Pam introd uced me to her flat-coat retriever rescue dog, Harley, while S appho watched from her gym on top of her indoor cage. Then I heard that distinctive clumping s ound and looked behind me just in time to see that Sappho had climbed down off her perch and was running across the kitchen floor towards my tend er toes. Once again Pam rescued me and Sappho mumbled l ong sentences of dissatisfaction as she was deposited back on her perch again. Dont get me wrong. Sappho is a great pet, especially if you a re Pam Brown. Pam raised her from five months old and at first h ad to feed her like a parent would, with crushed-up fruit d irectly to her beak. Pam and Sappho have been together for 2 2 years. These days Sappho spends her day in a large cage outfitted with lots of different toys, fresh fruit and grains, and a window view of passersby and s quirrels and other birds. At lunchtime Pam comes homea nd spends time with Sappho and Harley before heading back t o her downtown office. When Pam is home, Sappho is always nearby, telling her stories. While Pam regaled me with stories about Sapphos intellig ence, I kept a wary distance from that beak. It is clear that Ia m not Pam and Ive learned another lesson. Yes, Sappho is a P retty Bird. But even pretty birds sometimes bite! Pat Foster-Turley is a zoologist o n Amelia Island.

MARY MA GUIRE N ews-Leader In brief from the Nassau C ounty Commission meeting A ug. 6: The board signed off on the purchase of a trailer-mounted pr e ssur e washer cleaning rig for the Robert M. Foster Justice Center in Y ulee. Judge Robert Foster requested $20,490 to buy the equipment through a court facilities reserve account. The board OKd the sheriff request to spend $10,000 fr om the Special Law Enforcement Trust Fund on under cover operations by the investigative and narcotics unit. The Daughters of the American Revolution, Amelia Island Chapter, donated $75 to the Nassau County Library System to pur chase genealogi c al books as a memorial tribute t o thr ee members who have d ied, said the chapter NSDAR Regent Marie C. Santry. The board will allow organizers of the Amelia Island Concours dElegance to installa temporary six-foot high chain link fence from The RitzCarlton, Amelia Island driveway around the Summer Beach pool and on to the Carlton Dunes wall at Peters Point to keep peo ple without tickets or authorization away from the show field. Organizers say the roadway to Peters Point will remain open to the public and that they will leave 15 parking spaces open for public use during the classic car show Commissioners agreed to waive r ental fees at public buildings for six months for the Friends of the Bryceville Library and the Westside Democratic Club of Nassau C ounty But they want to c hange the pr ogram because i s costing too much money in cleaning fees. Commissioners are expected to discuss rental fee agreements at county facilities for nonprofit organizations at a meeting in September. The county received a donation of a small par cel fr o m the state Department of T ranspor tation along A1A north of Callahan. Of ficials said they have not decided what to do with the land. It is under 2 acres, but is eligible to have a driveway. The board signed a fuel pur chase agr eement with the Nassau County Health D epar tment. Officials noted that t hey sell gas to a number of l ocal or g anizations, including the Council on Aging. The county has negotiated a group purchase price with Gate gas stations and a private audit of the fuel program recommends formal agreements. The boar d wished County Manager Ted Selby happy bir thday Im happy because Im eligible for and enr olled today in the Medicare program, said Selby. Commission Chair Barry Holloway said that was true because he was in Selbys office when he enr olled. firstname.lastname@example.org M ARY MAGUIRE News-Leader Moving into a residential subdivision is no guarantee that a commercial operation will not open in your upscale, private, gated community. Ask Yulee resident Donald Jenkins. A 500-member public tennis f acility complete with eight courts and a clubhouse will open next to his home at the Amelia National subdivision. Developers also are calling for tournament play, charity events, tennis clinics and tennis lessons. Im not a tennis hater, said Jenkins. No one told me. J enkins said no one told him about the plans for the new tennis club when he purchased his home for $390,000 in April next door to three tennis courts and a tot lot. Next thing I know the tot lot is demolished and I hear were inviting hundreds of people to p lay tennis here. Why didnt the developers tell me? Jenkins said he asked. In fact, they said they had no plans (for expansion Jenkins, who identified himself a s businessman from Georgia. This is good for the community but very bad for me personally He spoke to the Nassau C ounty Planning & Zoning B oard at a public hearing Aug. 5 to consider a zoning and land u se change to include comm er c ial development at Amelia N ational. The developers needed the change to move forward with the project. The board approved the plan in a 9-1 vote. Board member and local realtor Bruce Jasinsky said no. The request now moves to the county commission. T he vote came after a 90minute discussion that included commentary from the developer, his lawyer and a representative from his management company. The board also heard from several local residents who supp ort the new facility. There was talk about lighti ng, maintenance, parking and security. But collectively, the boards comments focused on supporting new development. Here is how board member Jeff Gray put it: Nassau County is open for business, said Gray. The lawyer for the developm ent said the tennis club was a marketing tool. Selling homes. Thats really our goal, said T.R. Hainline of the Rogers Towers law firm based in Jacksonville and with offices in Fernandina Beach. Hainline said Amelia National is the only game in town for people who want a country club, swimming pool, tennis court. This was not the plan the board originally approved when A melia National Enterprises, L LC r e quested permission in 2 000 to build a residential subdivision with 749 houses, a small playgr o und and three tennis courts for resident use along the Amelia Concourse, south of A1A. But now that 130 houses are up and the market is on the rebound, developers are serving up a change in plans to help sell more homes. e need as much marketi ng help as we can, said resident Scott Johnson, who said he has lived at Amelia National for two years. Eight courts is certainly not a big imposition on us. Local resident John Hemlin s aid he doesnt play tennis, but he believes the new tennis club w ill add value to the community. This would be a major improvement, said Hemlin. A woman who said she works with the United States Tennis Association (USTA) told the board that the new courts and clubhouse is a good thing. J ackie Dunn, who moved to the subdivision from Atlanta two years ago, said it has been hard to hear negative comments. This is an amazing opportunity, said Dunn. The developer said residents were notified by email in March about the plan. Once we broke ground, thats when neighbors took notice, said Joseph Mattingly, a tennis pro who is owner/director of tennis at the Amelia N ational Tennis Club, LLC. H e said two meetings wer e h eld in July to address concerns. e spent one and a half to two weeks to address this with neighbors, he said. James Gower told the board that he doesnt play tennis, but the person I sell my house to might. Board Chair Tom Ford wanted to know why the developer did not buy land away from the p roperty and called the zoning change poor planning. o go in a gated community doesnt make sense to me, said Ford. But that didnt stop him from voting to approve the plan. B oard member Sharyl Wood said she is from a tennis famil y and told her colleagues the tennis courts are a major improvement. There was talk about lighting, maintenance and security. The developer said club members will pay $40 for special decals timed to align with the clubs operating hours, which r un from sunrise to 10 p.m. There was also talk about parking. Board member Scottie Murray asked where people will park, especially during tournaments, and was told that developers are hoping to stagger tournament schedules for golf and tennis events so cars will fit in the clubhouse parking lot. County officials hired outside attorney Mollie Garrett to r epresent the board during the m eeting. That s because County A ttorney David Hallman lives at Amelia National and recused himself fr o m the meeting. email@example.com CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 11A W EDNESDAY A UGUST 13, 2014 NEWS News-Leader On Amelia Island at the base of the A1A bridge From 11:00 am dailyWeekend breakfast from 8:00 AM960030 Gateway Blvd. 904-277-3700 www.barbarajeans.com INVITATION TO BIDThe City of Fernandina Beach will receive sealed bids forthe requirements of the following until no later than 1:30 pm, August 22, 2014.ITB # 14-11 DEMOLITION OFONE (1AMILY HOME AND CONSTRUCTION OFNEW SINGLE-FAMILYHOME 610 VERNON STREETBid documents and specifications are available to download from the City of Fernandina Beach website, www.fbfl.us/bids.

I am proud to stand with Sheriff B ill Leeper and the fine men and women of the Nassau County Sheriffs Office as they keep our communities safe. It is an honor to have the support and endorsement of Sheriff Leeper, and I supporth is commitment to the safety of the citizens in Nassau C ounty. Nassau County is a special place that we each call home and I believe that a stronger community also requires careful stewardship of our natural resources and the sensitive environmental assets that attract thousands o f tourists to our beaches, greenways and the surround-i ng water ways. As an avid h unter and fisherman I am c ommitted to preserving these resources for the next generation. Finally, Holloway said, for Nassau County to be strong we must have a sound a nd well developed health care system that serves all citizens.A ccess to health care is a concern we all share and I believe t hat Nassau County needs to attract more health care professionals and service providers to ensure appropriate access to the services that c itizens need.

H OLLOWAY Continued from 1A taxpayer money for a specific p urpose, and then decide to use it on something else. T hat is dishonest, and the citizens of Nassau County s hould be able to trust that their elected officials will keep their word. In addition to that, we need to pay as we go, and stay out of debt. As your county commissioner, Geor ge would fight to make s ur e taxpayer dollars ar e used responsibly. The announcement conc luded, George is a man of p rinciples and conviction. He u nderstands that County Commissioners are there to represent the views and needs of their constituency. It is of the utmost importance that our elected officials do not forget that they are to act in the best inter est of t hose that chose to elect them, a nd George, as your next c ounty commissioner will not rest until that happens. SPICER Continued from 1A APublic Service Announcement by The News-LeaderDONT LITTERSPAY~NEUTER Public hearing on sign code Sept. 16 M ARY MAGUIRE News-Leader After months of debate, the countys Planning & Zoning Boar d has scheduled a public hearing on pr oposed changes to the countys sign ordinance. T he meeting is set for Sept. 1 6 at 7 p.m. in the commission chambers at the James S. Page Gover n mental Complex on Nassau Place in Yulee. The ordinance would allow mor e signs for businesses along A1A that have a gr eater amount of frontage property along the r oadway and would a llow electronic signs to change messages three times each day rather than once. The discussion has been circular. There are board members that say government regulations hinder business, and oth-e rs that say the countys main c ommer cial cor ridor should h ave a cleaner look. And to them, that means few signs at a smaller size. To move the discussion forward at the meeting Aug. 5, Growth Management Director Peter King included in theb oards support documents a o ne-page matrix of what other c ommunity planners are doing about signs. I have a buddy in Jacksonville Beach and he said this was one of the biggest headaches of his career, said King. But look through it.Y oull see that Camden County, G eor gia has been incr edibly strict. Board Chair Tom Ford called for compromises froml ocal business leaders. He w ants mor e comments at the S eptember meeting. But heres a sampling of comments fr o m the Aug. 5 plan ning board meeting: If its so important for Ron Anderson to have a sign ... why put up time and temperature?s aid board member Sharyl W ood. It s disingenuous to s ay that its going to kill business. Boar d member W a yne Ar nold said people shop online for cars. Online is how its done now, said Arnold, who said his son traveled to DaytonaB each to buy a car after finding i t on the Inter net. Realtor Pat Keogh, who said he splits his time between Amelia Island and Reston, Va.,s aid, I dont think its approp riate for this boar d to impose ( r u les). And board member Jeanne Scott made this comment: I think we need flexibility. I dont recall anyone getting up there (to the podium The shrimp lady told you shel ost 40 percent (of business She didn t substantiate, s aid Wood.

S S t t u u n n g g u u n n u u s s e e d d Deputies used a stun gun on an 18-year-old man when he tried to prevent authorities from r emoving a two-year-old child from his residence, according toa Nassau County Sheriff Office report. Deputies were sent to the residence in Bryceville on July 30 to help Department of Children and Families investigators remove the child from t he house. When the DCF investigator t old the grandmother they were removing the child, an 18-yearold man at the residence told o fficials they were not taking t he child, and placed himself in t he way so the child could not be removed from a rear bedroom, the report stated. Due to his aggressive behavior, a deputy ordered the man to move away, and displayed his X26p TASER, accordi ng the report. The deputy then e scor ted the man to the living r oom, but he slipped from the officers grip. DCF officials managed to get the two-year-old and her belongings while the man continued to yell pr ofanities and insist that they wer e not taking t he child. A ccor ding to the r epor t, the d eputy told the man that authorities were indeed taking the child and that he needed to stop interfering, at which point the man became hostile and squar ed up with the of ficer The of ficer displayed his stun gun again and warned the man that if he tried to inter fer e a gain he would be arrested. According to the report, the man began looking ar o und the kitchen and stated he would kill the officer, then advanced toward him. When the man raised his right arm while advancing, the officer deployed the stun gun, striking the man m id chest, according to the report. T he man was placed in handcuffs after falling to the ground, the report stated, and charged with resisting arrest without violence and assault on a law enforcement officer, both misdemeanors. I t was not clear from the report whether the man wasr elated to the child who was removed from the residence.

S tudents attending were f r om the Nassau County Sheri ffs Office Special Response Team (which includes Fernandina Beach Police Depar t ment personnel) and the Jacksonville Sherif fs Office SWAT Team. The company providing the training, Gainesville TargetR ange, is comprised of trauma m edics and emer gency r oom trauma personnel. All members have extensive back grounds in ER trauma medicine and as veteran U.S. military combat medics on battlefields such as in Iraq and A fghanistan. T he course focused on t hree phases of emergency medical trauma care which are car e under fire, tactical field care and tactical evacuation car e. Given the special nature of both SWAT and SRT teams advanced medical care is cru-c ial. The faster you can render p r oper aid to someone the greater chance they have of sur v ival if critically injured. Students focused on rendering care to victims of gunshots, arterial bleeding, obstructed airways, collapsed l ungs, facial and eye injuries, s hock, hypother mia and sucki ng chest wounds. All students had to perform these medical pr o cedures on tissue specimens and during live fir e range practicals. Students had to provide directed fire to protect simulated vic-t ims of gunshot wounds and o ther injuries then move to the i njured, provide immediate care and then pick up the victim and evacuate them to a safe location all during the simu lated stresses of a gunfight or mass casualty incident. During all exercises students werec losely monitored by emerg ency medical personnel to i nsure proper life-saving techniques were administered.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK Inlet reds, tarpon and more"It was slow fishing during most of the morning tide until the outgoing tide began to ebb at the tip of the St. Marys north jetty rocks," Capt. Kenny Crawford said. "I actually switched over my redfish baits from freshly netted menhaden to fresh dead shrimp. That's when the big reds began to bite." During the next 30 minutes of r edfishing at the popular jetty rocks, Crawford's charter hooked and released several large redfish while fishing dead on the bottom with fresh shrimp. "Paul Howard caught and re leased a real giant of a redfish that measured 48 inches," Crawford said. "The last of the falling tide was key to our redfishing success; it also allowed us to fish with fairly light fishing tackle. "I had just filled my Ambassador 5000 trout and r edfish reels with Trilene 20pound test fishing line, which allowed my charter guests to enjoy the big fight of their hooked redfish." A few days earlier, Capt. Ben Forehand guided a fishing trip to the tip of the St. Marys north jetty rocks, hooking two giant tarpon and three "bull" redfish. "The first tarpon that we hooked jumped and dislodged the large saltwater hook," Forehand said. "However, the second tarpon we hooked was hooked perfectly. The fight lasted just over an hour with several wild leaps and deep runs from the 80-pound silver king." Although backwater fishing has been slow during the past few weeks, fishing at the St. Marys jetty rocks has been excellent. Saltwater fishermen have also been doing real well with large pelagic sharks and redfish while fishing the deep waters adjacent to historic Fort Clinch. The first and the last of the incoming tides have produced the best fishing action while fishing dead on the bottom with large pieces of freshly caught whiting or mullet. Flounder fishing has also been excellent at the little jetty rocks at Fort Clinch with the last of the falling tide producing the best action. Flounder fishermen are soaking large bullhead minnows and finger mullet on the bottom for flounder weighing up to 10 pounds. The tip of the St. Marys south jetties is also producing great action for both tarpon OUTDOORSTerry Lacoss OUTDOORS2BWEDNESDAY, AUGUST13, 2014 SPORTS News-Leader SPECIAL PHOTOSKristan Knapp, above, showcases a nice redfish she caught at the tip of the St. Marys north jetty rocks while fishing with Capt. Kenny Crawford. Georgia redfish must measure at least 14 inches and not more than 23 inches with an angler bag limit of five per day.

TERRY LACOSS/SPECIALLive mullet are ideal live baits for both redfish and tarpon. Rob Goyette is pictured tossing a mullet net into a small creek m outh. and redfish fishermen. Capt. Bill McFadden re cently guided a fishing party to several oversize redfish while fishing right up close to the tip of the south jetty rocks and on the ocean side. McFadden prefers to fish dead on the bottom with freshly netted menhaden. "We also jumped two tarpon while red bass fishing," McFadden said. "We actually saw several tarpon rolling right alongside of the jetty r ocks during our morning fishing charter." On the same day, Capt. Danny Flynn hooked and r eleased several tarpon for his clients while tarpon fishing midway on the ocean side of the St. Marys south jetty r ocks. While Amelia Island fishermen have easy access to the popular St. Marys inlet from the Egans Creek boat ramp, the Fernandina Harbor public boat ramp and the Dee Dee Bartel memorial boat ramp, the southern tip of Amelia Island is also producing excellent tarpon and light tackle fishing action. "We must have jumped over 20 tarpon during a r ecent tarpon fishing trip to Nassau Sound," Capt. Jimmy Johnson said. "I was fishing with outdoorsmen Billy Burbank and son Hunter. Several of the tarpon were brought to the side of my charter boat Rappi and re leased." Capt. Nathan Turner has also been guiding his clients to excellent catches of big jack crevalle and the occasional tarpon while targeting the menhaden schools just north of Nassau Sound. "My clients have been hooking some really big tarpon on flies recently, but they always seem to throw the hook," Turner said. "However, the jacks have been great fun on light tackle and on the fly too." Tony Reagan has been hooking giant flounder while fishing the rough bottom from the Fernandina Port to the mouth of Egans Creek. "I had a real giant of a flounder hooked and then I thought that it had dislodged the hook," Reagan said. "However, the loose hook found a new hook set in the tail of the flounder and I was able to land a nice six-pound flounder." Reagan has been flounder fishing with freshly netted finger mullet during a falling tide. Backcountry fishing during the past week has been slow due to the recent full moon, which occurred Sunday.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK P AGE 4B W EDNESDAY A UGUST 13, 2014 N EWS -L EADER / F ERNANDINA B EACH FL The annual escape to Maine and cooler temperatures The Big Guy and I love our Florida home except in August. Day after day of hot, humid weather and the inevitable afternoon pop-up s howers make us think of escape to cooler climes. So we plan our annual trip north to Maine. We think of it as medicine a restorative. It is not an easy drive. We manage to travel through 13 different states. Florida, Georgia, South and North Carolina, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, N ew York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and, finally, Kennebunkport, Maine. As Dinah Shore used to sing ever so cheerfully, See the USA in your Chevrolet ... This year our northern trek included stops at some of the Civil War battlefields around Richmond and Fredericksburg, Va. Rereading the history of these horrific battles with t heir heavy loses is sobering. Prior to departure we invested some television viewing time watching Ken Burns Civil War series to remind us of the geography a nd cities we might visit. It was hardly a civil war. The further north we drive, the more intense the challenges of the drive. After three days of intense highway driving, we finally pull in to my sisters cottage on Goochs Beach, Kennbunk, Maine. We quickly settle in to the slower pace and relish the cooler temperatures. The punishing drive is worth the b lessings of cool, clear, sunny days on the Maine coast. We never tire of exploring the quainter than quaint towns up and down the coast with names like Ogunquit, Goose Rocks, Cape Porpoise and Biddeford. The beaches in Maine are not like our beaches. In fact, they are gray and gritty and more dirt than sand. T he beach near the cottage is crescent-shaped with rocks defining each end. Dogs are not allowed on the beach during the day. So before the beach opens and after it closes is dog time. Better than television we love to watch the rowdy crew of dogs of all sizes and shapes playing on the beach. Not unlike a dog show featuring all breeds, but these participants are unleashed. Their energy was endless. Balls and Frisbees are snatched our of the air and the bigg er dogs rush into the ocean chasing all manner of toys, sticks and balls. One morning watching the morning dog circus, we caught sight of Barbara Bush, a Kennebunkport celebrity, walking with her two dogs and following five feet behind her ever present Secret Service escort. We understand she walks every m orning rain or shine. The Bushes are much loved by all. Stories of their friendliness and generosity abound. We love our lobster. Each year we try and get our fill. Our favorite way to enjoy the local favorite is a lobster roll. Lumps of precious lobster are mixed with mayonnaise, chopped celery and served in a toasted bun that resembles a hot dog bun. We are on first-name basis with the folks that have the vendor truck serving lobster rolls and fried clams on R oute 1 near Kennebunkport. Maine, is well, Maine. It is what you expect. Beautiful piney woods, elegant white church spires in every town. Houses of clapboard in autumny shades of mustard, cinnamon and mossy green or brilliant white. Bright flowers are abundant. The people are friendly and helpful. O ur break from the Florida heat is treasured, but there is no place like home. If only it were a little cooler in August.

Leeper said in 2013, Nassau Countys crime rate declined 17.2 percent despite an incr ease in population a trend he attributes to a closer collaboration with the Fernandina Beach Police Depar tment and other law enfor cement agencies.

PET PROJECTS AMANDA THIEN 4-H Youth Development Agent School may be back in sess ion, but many youth are still recalling fond memories of scaling their first fish and singing very silly camp songs. A re you familiar with the t erms Community Supported A griculture or Farm to Table? Well, these and other similar t erminologies were introduced in this summer's Culinary Day Camp. This camp is traditionally provided in partnership by the Nassau County Extension4 -H and Family and Consumer Science agents, but this summ er we called upon many other community partners to make t he week successful. Farm to Table day camp began at Conner's A-maize-ing Acres and this was the highlight of the week for manya ttendees, as they were able to e njoy fr esh fish they cleaned t hemselves from the aquaponics display and the rest of the luncheon menu was planned ar ound the fr e sh pr o duce they were able to harvest. On day two campers visited Bacon's Select Produce and noto nly did they see a great examp le of gr eenhouse gar dening, t hey were also able to help plant cucumbers. On the thir d day of camp youth visited The Blueber r y Ranch where they learned about the vision behind this father/son operation. Then they picked berries to be e njoyed by their families. After this the youth traveled to Traders Hill and were provided with a very educational tour and some delicious farm fresh produce to sample. The week concluded by youthp reparing soup, muffins and c ookies not only for their lunch o n Friday but also for clients of the Council on Aging thr o ugh the Yulee Soup Train program. A 4-H alumnus and local beekeeper, Curtis Quarrier, concluded a great week of camp with a lesson on thei mportance of honeybees and t he youth enjoyed samples prov ided. A special thank you to all the individuals who par t ner e d with UF/IFAS Extension to make this week of camp both educational and fun. Campers also had a toadally cool time at envir onment al day camp this summer. As y ou may have guessed, less ons, games, songs and crafts all center e d on the subject of frogs and toads. From painting frog houses to dissecting a frog, campers stayed very busy engaged in hands-on learning with 4-H Agents Mar garet J ohnson and Amanda Thien. L essons provided by Ag and N atural Resour c es Agent Amanda Mar e k made campers more knowledgeable about the impacts we have on our environment on a daily basis and Horticulture Agent Becky Jordi taught youth about insects thatt hey were sure to find while h unting for frogs and toads. T he camp was pr o vided for ages 5-10 and they enjoyed every minute of fun. For more information about joining 4-H, come to the open house from 3-7 p.m. on Aug. 26 at the Callahan ExtensionO ffice at the Northeast Florida F airgrounds or call 879-1019.
