County rules

give boost to

Yulee growth

Nassau County Commissioners gave tentative,
approval Monday to changes in the county's land
development code that would make development eas-
ier for 24,000 acres owned by TerraPointe, Rayonier's
real estate arm, in Yulee.
The first phase of the project, involving about one-
sixth of the land, would include more than 4,000 hous-
es and 7 million square feet of commercial or indus-
trial uses, according to Rayonier documents.
The measure comes up for a final public hearing
when the board convenes Oct. 22.
"We are making the ... planned unit district (PUD)
easier to work with for developers and we're also
removing a whole section of the land development
code which is obsolete," said Peter King, the county's
interim growth management director.
Commissioners voted unanimously for the changes,
which would ease development regulations and adopt
new guidelines for growth in the East .Nassau
Community Planning Area, which has been more than
a decade in planning by county and Rayonier officials.
The changes aim to make the county more eco-
nomically competitive with neighboring counties by
aligning the land development code with the county's
comprehensive plan, King said.
Three chunks of land, totaling 4,200 acres, would
comprise the first phase of that development. The
bulk of th'e growth in the first phase is slated for a near-
ly 3,000-acre piece of land adjacent to the intersec-
tion of US 17 and SR 200. Two pieces of land, one on
the Georgia border to the north and the other off 1-95
south of A1A, also would be developed.
Officials hope the majority of growth in the first
phase will be tied directly to economic development,
primarily small businesses and industrial users.
But the only anticipated user of the land at this
time is Rayonier, which plans to build its Nassau head-
quarters in the area, King said. Construction on that
facility, he added, would not start until early 2013 at the
"The first building that's going up there is
Rayonier's Nassau County office" across from William
Burgess Boulevard. said County Manager Ted Selby
on TuePd:,%,'
Pt'ajoetif if-om Rayonier and the county suggest
the development would add 4,000 residential rooftops
- 2,500 to the central piece of land and the remaining
1,500 destined for the smaller portions.
In effect, the amendments to the code would
remove restrictions limiting the amount of commercial
development and requiring a majority of development
be residential.
If commissioners approve them Oct. 22, Rayonier
would need to submit a detailed area site plan, which
would be subject to the approval of the Planning &
Zoning Board before coming back to the commis-
sion. County officials could approve the site plan and
the zoning changes by December, King said.

amendments at a public hearing Sept. 17, and county

Capt. Victor Y Goldberg
Captain Victor Y. Goldberg passed away at
age 61 on October 4, 2012, far too young for such
'an engaging, exuberant and devoted family man
and superb shipping executive.
Vic was born in San Francisco, the son of the
late Albert and D)oba Lee Goldberg. He was
raised in Marin County and was a graduate of
San Rafael High School. He
enrolled at the U.S. Merchant
Marine Academy in Kings Point,
Long Island, NY, where he grad-
uated with a bachelor's degree in
., nautical science in 1973 and
received a Meritorious Alumni
Service Award. After retiring as a
captain in the U.S. Naval Reserve, including a
tour of duty in Vietnam, he began work in shipping
at Chevron Corporation: later, he became chief
operating office of the shipping fleets at Arco. In
2002, he joined a subsidiary of Crowley Maritime
Corporation in New Jersey as VP, ship manage-
ment; more recently, he became VP, Marine
Operations, at Crowley Petroleum Services in
Jacksonville, where, in 2009, he received the
Thomas Crowley Trophy, the company's highest
In 1974, Vic married the love of his life,
Stephanie, who survives him as do their two chil-
dren, Major AJ Goldberg and Jessica Goldberg. He
is also survived by AJ's wife, Kendra, and their
infant daughter, Lucille, by Vic's sisters Karen
Adelson (and husband Ken) and Adalee Brown
(and husband Bruce), and Marcia Tunik (and
husband Lloyd), by Vic's sister-in-law Lillian
Romano (and husband Pat), his father-in-law
Stephen Vissagio, and many nieces and nephews.
Vic made his mark as a vivid personality begin-
ning in high school, where he acted in many
school plays. He had a wonderful and varied sense
of humor: his ability to imitate others fooled count-
less family members and friends when they
answered calls. He loved jokes and could tell
them in hilarious ways. But Vic had a serious
side to him as well. He worked with passion at his
profession, including being the captain of mam-
moth oil tankers starting at the tender age of 29
and traveling world-wide to inspect shipping inci-
dents on behalf of Crowley. 'He loved visiting
with his children, new granddaughter and other
family and friends, as well as his adorable dogs,
Cali and Jaxi. Vic and Steph shared wonderful
tinme-' together at their lovely home on Amelia
Is .ui He enjoyed the thrill of riding his Harley
ILotorcycle, especially with his son AJ,and he so
proudly loved listening to his daughter Jessica's
sterling piano recitals. As a lifetime loverof music,
he was an active member of the Men's Glee Club
of New York.
A private service was on held on Amelia Island

on ctober 7, 2012, with Rabbi Robert Good(man
presiding. A public memorial service will be held
at the Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point,
Il.og Island, at a later date.
" In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his
memory sent payable to ULSMMA Alumni
Association and 'oundation at 300 Steamhboal
Road, Babson Center, Kings Point, NY 11024.

FRIDAY, OCTOI3:R 12,2012 NEWS,Ncws-Lcadcr


City officials conducted a
tour T'uesday of the Fernandina
Beach Municipal Airport run-
way approaches to give citizens
a better understanding of the
tree mitigation project that will
be undertaken to address
obstruction issues created by
trees on airport and adjacent
city-owned property.
The Florida Department of
Transportation has directed the
City to immediately address
the safety issues created by
these obstructions or face the
possible loss of its operating
license, the city said iul a press
The greatest level of discus-
sion and questions took place at
the ends of runway approaches
.27 and 22. The Runway 22
approach goes over the
Simmons Cove subdivision and
the city property in the north-
east quadrant of the Amelia
Island Parkway and South 14th
Street intersection. The tree mit-
igation plan has identified

plan targets 300 trees

approximately 225 trees as
obstructions in th(lie Runway 22
approach area.
Natural slash pines, approx-
imately 40-45 ycars old, repre-
sent tle majority of trees in this
area and are generally in lhe
75-110-fool height range. THie
city plans to harvest these trees
to recover a large portion of its
share of (lihe project cost.
Andrew Holesko of Passero
Associates, who facilitated the
discussion during the tour, said
(the area would no( be clear-cut
due to the presence of other
tree species, but the work would
require the use of heavy
machinery and trucks.
Based on a suggestion by
several citizens, city officials are
considering as part of the
restoration effort the inclusion
of some nature trails.
The Runway 27 approach
travels over the city golf course
and the mapping study identi-
fied approximately 70 trees as
obstructions. The plan calls for

almost half of (he identified
trees to be removed since (trim-
ming was not an option due to
the tree species or tihe tree's
probability to survive.
The Passero team has
reviewed the tree mitigation
plan with lthe city's golf course
director and superintendent.
Fencing and naive species
replanting will be done to
improve the overall visual
appeal of the golf course by both
its players and motorists pass-
ing by along Amelia Islandl
FDOT recently awarded the
city a grant in excess of
$200,000 to assist in the tree
mitigation plan that. will be
* added to grant funds from the
FAA as part of the Runway 4/22
City officials attending the
tour included Mayor Arlene
Filkoff, Vice Mayor Jeffrey
Bunch, City Manager Joe
Gerrity and Community
Development Director Marshall

Passero is the city's primary
('engineering consultant for (hei
airport and has been involved
with the city's airport projects
for more than 12 years.
Early McCall, a certified
arborist/forester who partici-
pated in the detailed tree survey
program earlier this year, was
also present.
After traveling to each run-
way approach, Holesko used a
large scale photo map with data
from the airport tree survey to
identify the trees and areas that
would be impacted by the miti-
gation program. Holesko reit-
erated that the current project
was addressing oiin Ih..- ,.- -.
on city property and the guiding
principles were to minimize the
number of trees to be removed
and to save oaks where possible
by trimming instead of remov-
ing. He also reminded the
group that no trees on private
property would be addressed
in this stage of the plan.

Amelia Island Trail work begins Monday

Construction on the Amelia
Island Trail will begin on
'Monday, according to Florida
department ofTransportation's
District 2 Project Manager
Thomas Butler.
The $2.3 million construc-
tion contract was recently
awarded to the J. B. Coxwell
Contracting Co. ofJacksonville.
Project Manager Eddie
Green will lead the construc-
tion effort and 'he assured
FDOT management that his
company will finish by the 120
calendar-day deadline. Factor-
ing in potential "suspension",
days for weather and holidays,
that will put the projected com-
pletion date for the trail at mid-
February to early March 2013.

City seeks grant

for new signs at

beach accesses

News Leader
CitS commissioners last
week approved a grant appli-
cation that will require up to
$15,000 in city funds for new
signs at city beaches.
The city was requesting
maximum grant funding of
$30,000 with a 100 percent
match, but resident Len
Kreger, who is assisting with
the grant project, said the
city's share would be closer,
to $11,000.
The funds from the city
will provide a match for a
Coastal Partnership Initiative
grant from the National'
Oceanic and Atmospheric
The grant, if approved, will
pay for upgraded educational
signs and displays at North
Beach, Main Beach and
'Seaside parks.
The funds will also pay for
designing and installing
informational signs at all 48

beach access points within the
Those signs will include
information on beach litter
and applicable city ordi-
nances. New sign mounts will
be installed for existing cur-
rent and flag warning signs.'
Educational kiosks would
have information on the pro-
tection of sea turtles, gopher
tortoises, shorebirds and the
dune system, plus material on
the identification of right
' whales.
Kreger said local citizen
groups would be available to
donate their time toward the
signage project. He noted
Florida Public Utilities had
committed to donating labor,
as well as the Sierra Club and
local kayak clubs. He also said
it would probably not cost
more than about $9,000 in city
labor .for the signs to be'
installed over a year's time.
The grant application is
due Oct. 31.

Online program lacks 'focus

Conm n iiity Netvspapers

A new online program
needs additional participa-
tion from parents and teach-
ers for lull utilization.
The Focus program pro-
vides teachers with an
online grade book, assign-
ments, online attendance
taking and discipline refer-
rals accessible for parents in
real time.
The program began in
Yulee and Hilliard schools
last year and moved to the
entire district this fall.
School board member
Kathy Burns requested an
update during the Nassau
County School Board meet-
ing Sept. 27.
"Everybody who has
asked for access has pretty
much got it by now," said
Sharyl Wood, executive
director of administrative
services. "The schools have
been finishing up entering
the, parents' requests for
accounts and mailing or
sending out that informa-
tion to parents. I expect that
to be an ongoing thing."
She added about 35 per-
cent of parents within the
district are accessing the
information but there is
room for more to apply.
"We hope they will,"
Wood said. "We did do a
school reach message to
remind everyone that we
did have this service and
encouraged them to contact
their schools to get their

user had gone online and
had unintentionally
accessed a different pro-
gram by the same name.
Burns asked if teachers
had any issues printing

spreadsheets are in an

Burns asked if there wais
a gap among teachers who
had not accessed tihe pro-

ing videos they were
assigned to access.
Wood affirmed that the

program and utilizing it
"I had one individual
who attempted' the final
exam 12 times and didn't
watch any videos," she said.
"Is it pass, fail?" Burns
"They have to get an 80
percent," Wood replied. "So
you know if there's any
question, sometimes at a
certain point when I would
get questions from a
teacher that I thought had
clearly been covered in the
videos, I would go back and
look at that teacher's record

watched the video. In some
cases, yes, they've watched
them multiple times and in
some cases, no. So in a few
cases, not very many, but
in two or three cases, I have
recommended to people
that they should access the
video and that might help
them understand."
An issue with the fire-
wall has also been correct-
ed. Some teachers were
posting multiple pages of
grades at one sitting to meet
progress report deadlines.
They were asked not to do
that to ensure grades were
properly posted and saved,
Wood said, adding that the
program works best when
teachers post grades as they
go along.
"I think the vast majori-
ty are doing that," she
added. "I look at people's
grade books all the time
when they call me and they
have a problem and 1 have
to go in and look at to see
what the problem is. I've
seen lots and lots of grades,
you know, graded work for
parents to look at."
Eventually parents will
have an ability to access

district website that will also
include Edline access.
Superintendent John
Ruis said the program is
going well but it is paradigm

"We'll work through
these issues," he said,
adding that he is pleased
with the program's imple-
mentation so far. "I think

100 students in

Nassau homeless

Community Newspapers

At least 105 school-aged children in
Nassau County are classified as home-
less. That number could more than
double by the school year's end.
As of Sept. 25,44 children in west-
ern Nassau and 61 other children,
mostly from the Yulee area, qualified
as homeless, said Andreu Powell,
Office of Intervention and Prevention
Services coordinator,.
During the 2011-12 school year,
210 students experienced non-tradi-
tional living arrangements with rela-
tives or friends. The year prior, 146 stu-
dents were displaced due to a lack of
affordable housing and jobs.
Students who live with relatives,
family or friends or in other non-tra-
ditional settings such as motels, cars,
campgrounds and public spaces qual-
ify as homeless under the McKinney-
Vento Homeless Assistance Act.
The sluggish economy continues
'to plague financially strapped fami-
"Most of our kids are living in con-
ditions the federal government calls
doubled-up," Powell ,aid. "Although
these kids may have a roof over their
head, they have lost their original
homo due to economic hardship or
natural disaster and are living with
extended family or friends."
Some may also live in tents.
"Tent cities are typically a cluster
of homeless individuals who have
banded together in a location out of
the public eye where they will not be
discovered or harassed," said Robyn
Andrews, president of the Coalition
for the Homeless of Nassau County.
, "Although outreach. workers fre-
quently encounter them,.they are dif-
ficult to pinpx)int and move from place
to place on a regular basis to avoid
discovery. A trusted outreach worker
may be able to locate and approach
them without alarming them, but typ-
ically if someone encounters their.
location, they are quick to find a new
The school district relies on dona-
tions and grants to aid displaced chil-
"Funding for services is and has
been very limited," Powell said.
"Although the district is happy to pro-
vide these services, this is another
case where the federal government

passes a law requiring school districts
to provide services, but gives us no
money to do it."
Title I entitlements of $6,000 have
been set aside for district use, but
those funds are not allocated just for
homeless students.
"It is there for students in need
under a variety of circumstances,"
Powell said. "The school district has
become overwhelmed with the num-
ber of homeless students and their
needs, as well as state and federal
requirements concerning them."
New this year, a $45,000 grant will
provide for a new staff member who
will serve as a liaison for homeless
students. The Nassau County School
Board was to consider applicants
Thursday night.
School officials identify students
as homeless through information
obtained through school enrollment
packets. Students who are still home-
less when the subsequent school year
starts must again complete paperwork
for identification purposes. The chal-
lenge is to identify existing students
within the school system, according to
"Once the suspected identification
takes place, then students must be
enrolled in the program and their
rights are explained to them," he said.
"Arrangements are then made to find
out what services they may need."
Area schools assist children by
providing school supplies, breakfast,
lunch, toiletries and other necessities.
"In many cases, we can provide
.transportation services to the stu-
dent's school-of-origin so the student
can stay in the same school even if
the family relocates to a different com-
munity," Powell said.
Community groups like the Inter-
Faith Dinner Network, Micah's Place
and the Coalition for the Homeless
also help.
Because clothing shortages
abound among displaced children, the
school district accepts donations for
new clothes and new undergarments,
Powell said.
"We were especially fortunate
.recently when someone in the
community hosted her child's birth-
day party to help the homeless," he
added. "The young birthday boy
asked guests to bring a donation for a
needy child instead of gifts for him-

Cars are coming

- a seismic shift

The open market is a fasci-
nating thing to behold.
Consumers react to changing
dynamics in theI world and
spend accordingly. Homes,
vehicles, fashion, technology
and many other products are
a moving target.
Manufacturers have to either
anticipate or create (Apple)
the market. No better exam-
ple of product evolution exists
than the global vehicle mar-
ket. It is immense, diverse
and ever volatile.
We are in the midst of a
seismic shift back to cars,
even in.light of somewhat
moderating fuel costs (under
$4). The car shift is certain to
escalate as CAFE (Corporate
Fuel Economy Average) man-
dates are firmly in place.
Manufacturers will have to
achieve vehicle sales averag-

ing 50-plus
miles per
gallon in the
,. which are
S .SUVs and
will give way
REFFER'S to more car
CORNER production.
What you
will see,
RickKeffer rolling out in
the next
decade will blow both our
minds get ready.
For this week, let's look at
2012 year to date versus 2011
YTD car and truck sales. In
addition, we will look at
September 2012 YTD results
versus 2007 YTD in terms of
volume and car/truck mix.

Cars were only 49percent ofthe vehicle
market in 2007 Cars were up to 523 percent
year over year in September 2012.

Car sales for September
2012 Yl'D were 5.7 million,
with that comprising 52.3 per-
cent of the market. Truck
sales for the same period
were 5.2 million, at 47.7 per-
cent of the market.
Looking at 2011 YTD, car
sales were 4.82 million and
50.6 percent of the market.
Truck sales last year for this
same period were 4.7 million
and 49.4 percent of the mar-
ket. Cars up from 50.6 per-
cent to 52.3 percent year over
year is a big shift. Car sales
advanced 882,952 units, while

truck sales advanced 498,167.
The result is car sales are
up 18.3 percent this year and
truck sales are up 10.6 per-
cent. A definite trend is build-
ing in a market up 15 percent
So, where are we in histor-
ical terms after a few years of
healthy gains? To look at that,
we will go back to 2007, five
short years ago. September
2007 YTD sales were 12.4 mil-
lion versus-.10.9 million this
year. That makes 2012 results
11.8 percent down from 2007.
Still very encouraging com-

pared to the depths we had
plunged to in 2009.
I kingig again at the car
versus truck comparison, cars
were only 49 percent of the
market in 2007. That repre-
sented 6.1 million units. Our
5.7 million units this year is
very nearly back there.
Trucks are off 800,000 units
from 2007. We begin to see
long-term and short-term data
to verify a market shift, which
will escalate with government
and energy cost influences.
I wouldn't want to have to
classify what is a car or truck
going forward. Mini SUVs,
crossovers.(modern station
wagons), minivans and five-
door models will be hard to
sort. Great, creative offerings
will respond to market fac-
tors, and following this indus-
try will tell a lot about global

directions. It would make a
good ongoing case study at all
the elite business colleges
like Wharton. Incredible vehi-
cles are already on dealers'
lots today. If you haven't been
out in a year or a decade, do it
and see the great products
available, with 2013's readily
available. Have a good week.

coaches the Middle

ago? Following his stint as a

At the Courtyard the other
night, while listening to piano
man John Springer play Cole
, Porter's 1935 classic "Begin
the Beguine," it occurred to
me I had no idea what the
heck a "Beguine" is, and nei-
ther did anyone else in the
place as we were all stumped
for an answer, including John.
So; when I went home, I
looked it up, and it isn't what I

Others who left the island
only to realize that the grass
wasn't really greener on the

Camp and Foy Tyler Maloy,
who worked together at the
old Horizons restaurant at the
corner of Ash and South
Eighth Street some 13 years
ago and have just recently
been reunited in the same
kitchen at the soon to open

the staff, which had to under-
go strenuous and lengthy
training and must abide by a
strict dress code.

Everybody complains
about Comcast, right? So a
couple weeks ago when I
opened my Comcast bill I was
surprised to see charges for
services I did not order, so
with bill in hand I drove to the
South 14th Street Comcast
location fully expecting to do
battle with one of the clerks
there, but it was not to be.
Employee Uzabeth Perez was
as pleasant a person as I've
ever dealt with, patiently lis-
tening to my plea, examining
the bill and agreeing that
there was indeed an over-
charge, correcting it on the
spot, and that was that.
In addition, Keith Cook,
another islander who labors
for the cable giant, had my
house neatly rewired in
record time, was a very polite
and professional young man
and endeared himself to my
wife by always removing his
shoes before entering. No
complaints here and thanks to

Weigh facts about city marina

I cannot, in good faith, let misinformation
be perpetuated at the expense of the tax-
payers and remain silen( on tlie topic.
Dismiss as you may, that I am the for-
mer city marina director, who only has an axe
to grind, but I implore reasonable minds to
weigh the facts, not the revised facts that have
been presented as reasons and evidence that
the current management of the city marina
should remain.
In its article of Oct. 5 ("Marina manager
retained by 3-2"), the News-Leader accurately
reported that "according to the city's contract
with Westrec, it (the city) is paying salaries for
seven marina employees, plus their health
insurance and benefits." Additionally, as
stated in the article, the city also will pay
$543,024 towards the marina debt (for dredg-'
ing and construction expenses) along with
next year's city obligation of $31,700 every
month, for its share of payroll and benefits for
So to first answer Commissioner Jeffrey
Bunch's question, "If we terminate the
lease . do we have the money to do it our'-
selves?" The answer is whether or not we
do or don't, we nonetheless have been paying
for it for the last three years. And further-
more, in question to Commissioner Bunch's
assertion that "we don't have the money
budgeted to do that," how then have we
been paying for the salaries and benefits, it
wasn't budgeted? Apparently it always has
been. In other words, the taxpayers have
been paying those expenses, which were pre-

viously borne by the enterprise fund
when the city's marina department ran the
To further exacerbate the manipulation of
facts, Gary Groenewold's statements that
Westrec was responsible for the improve-
ments to the marina, including the docks,
mooring field and critical improvements to the
fire suppression system, is an absolute false
The city's marina department, in conjunc-
tion with facilities maintenance, the finance
department, the grants administrator and
Passero Associates were responsible for these
improvements. It is deplorable for Mr.
Groenewold to make such assertions, and
absurd that the city commission or city staff
would allow that to go unrefuted! Westrec
inherited a turnkey operation that included
the new docks, the renovated boater's
facility and bathrooms and a recently dredged
It is also noteworthy that Westrec, in its ini-
tial presentation during our RFP, stated that
they would enhance our marketability and
could lower our fuel purchase expenses both
key selling points. They were made fully
aware that although the marina had been
recently dredged, that it would silt in again.
They also were very aware that our national
economy had been in a recession, and the
marina industry had been significantly impact-
ed. Nonetheless, they made the case that they
could and would make the city marina prof-
itable and self-sustaining, so much so that the

city could pay the debt service and continue
with a regular maintenance dredging program.
Then reality hit. Westrec had to ask (and
received) financial relief from the city commis-
sion for some of the rent, because they were
unable to make any money. The reasons given
for this were siltation, the economy and the
competition from the other fuel dock a few
hundred yards to the north. They ran into the
very same issues that stymied and eventually-
sunk the marina department, but were and
still are rewarded, instead of being vilified like
their predecessors.
City Manager Joe Gerrity said it best and
most correctly. "We pay for everything; we pay
$108,000 for the Westrec name, plus all (mari-
na) personnel expenses."
It would behoove the commission to listen
to our city manager. We could save $108,000
by taking back the marina and putting it under
the recreation department. The staff is already
in place, and we are already paying their
salaries and other expenses. Manager Joe
Springer, Dockmaster Kevin Little and the rest
of the current marina staff are well-seasoned
and dedicated employees, and would do the
city proud, being a part of the city team -
where they belong.
Ultimately, an extra $100,000 a year back
into the City budget seems like a good idea. It
is amazing that such an obvious choice has
been dismissed. It's more amazing that no
one, other than Commissioners (Charles)
Corbett and (Sarah) Pelican, understand the

The city ofYulee?
Recently, I've noticed some com-
munity members who would like to
see the incorporation of Yulee become
a reality. The reasoning behind the
incorporation varies from person to
Some say they would like to see
better services offered to the residents
of Yulee. .
Others say that Yulee is starting to
lose its identity. With the name
"Amelia" popping up everywhere on
this side of the bridge, many fear that
Fernandina (or even the future city of
Crandall) may try to annex Yulee or
that the name might even get changed
to Amelia.
Many feel that with all the growth
. happening in Yulee, the taxes from
these businesses and residences could
be put to better use within the incor-
porated city of Yulee.
Advantages of incorporation could
include better services offered, such as
police and'emergency, recreation and
some utilities. Other advantages
include having a stronger voice for the
citizens of the community, higher prop-
erty values and through local zoning
laws, residents can control develop-
ment. The city could also get grants to
help fund some projects.
Disadvantages include an increase
in taxes, more restrictive ordinances
(both good and bad), liability issues,
finding the right leadership, meeting
state and federal mandates, dealing'
with outraged citizens and having
another level of government to deal
with. The incorporated city must also
deal with maintaining roads, bridges
and other infrastructure.
Residents of Yulee must be willing
to run for office and serve the citizens
in a fair, responsible fashion. Major
decisions made previously at the coun-
ty level would be made locally. Making
the wrong decision could put the city
of Yulee in jeopardy or in a lawsuit and
tie up much needed dollars.
And becoming incorporated is not
something that can be done overnight.
It could take years. Residents must

Sustainable movement across the
nation is not good for America. I am
sure there are numerous residents that
will attend your meetings thinking they
are attending an environmental meet-
ing without knowing the consequences
of the real agenda.
Since this movement started in 700
colleges (that should give everyone
pause), the force to do this is tremen-
dous. This movement not only involves
wrong-headed environmental issues,
but also will -change our ability to
choose our mode of transportation,
impact our ability to pay for gas,
restructure our economy and govern-
ment and change our freedom that we
enjoy now.
I for one do not want to live over a
store (to save building on land), nor do
I want to ride a bicycle everywhere I go
(which will not be very far because
remember I live over the village store).
This is an agenda to change our coun-
try and we all must be aware by edu-
cating ourselves by research.
By the way, this movement is part
of the UN's global initiative and also
part of their Agenda 21 initiative.

Complete strangers come up to me
- I guess because my face is now plas-
tered on billboards around the county
- and ask, "Why are you running for
My education and life's work have
been in the field of economics. For too
long, members of Congress from
both parties have attempted to cir-
cumvent the laws of economics. For
instance, Congressman Ander
Crenshaw's response to the out-of-con-
trol federal spending is to increase the
debt ceiling limit. (He has voted to
increase the debt ceiling six times in
his 12 years in Congress.)
The overriding issue in this election
is the national debt, which now stands
at more than $16 trillion. Federal
spending is out-of-control and for the
past three years Ander has been voting
for the ever-increasing appropriation
bills that are driving the debt higher at
the rate of $100 billion a month. Right


now, we borrow 45 cents of every dol-
lar Washington spends. That is not
sustainable. It must stop.
I decided to run for the Fourth
District Congressional seat last August
when Ander voted for the $2.4 trillion
debt increase package. The fact that he
had voted earlier to give Wall Street
bankers a $750 billion bailout hadn't
helped. (The list goes on and on.)
Ander has been a fiscal failure, aiding
and abetting the out-of-tontrol spend-
ing. He is part of the problem. If he
were in the private sector and judged
on performance, he would have been
fired long ago.
My strongest qualification for run-
ning is that I am not a career politi-
cian I'm just a hard-working, mid-
dle-class, taxpaying veteran who thinks
Congress is dysfunctional and self-
serving. I wanted voters in the Fourth
Congressional District to have a choice
in the general election on Nov. 6. We
need a return to basic economic prin-
ciples and common sense in Congress.
That's why I am running.

Why is it that we have not seen
much coverage of the conspiracy to
break federal law by the White House,
Labor Department and defense con-,
tractors? The Warn Act, which Sen.
Obama supported wholeheartedly,
states that any government contrac-
tor must give 60 days' notice to work-
ers that may potentially face a layoff.
There are several defense contractors,
i.e., Lockheed Martin, that have
expressed the unfortunate need to
shave their workforce in the face of
defense cuts set to take effect on
Jan. 1.
Now, because those notices must
be sent out no later than Nov. 2, just
clays before the election, the Labor
Department at the behest and advan-
tage of the White House has told the
companies not to follow the law that
is right, the government is telling busi-
nesses to break federal law. Even
worse, the government has pledged
to help pay the legal fees that (he com-
panies will face when their workers
sue for not having sent the proper
This in my opinion represents pos-
sible election fraud; I will certainly not
hold my breath while we wait fori the
Justice Department to act on these vio-
lations of federal law.

I was born into a Democratic fami-
ly. My first vote was Democratic, and
I was proud to be voting for something
I believed in. When I got married I
still thought the Democratic Party rep-
resented my ideals and continued to
vote that ticket. I am so sorry that the
Democratic leaders have lost their way.
When I heard about the Democratic
National Convention taking God out
of their platform, I was upset. They
voted three more times, if you watched
it was pretty much a 50-50 decision,
but they did put the word "God" back
into their platform but clearly they
have not put God back into their
hearts. I think that the directionof the
Democratic Party is destructive to our
American way of life.
The Democratic National
Committee banned dozens of Charlotte
churches from distributing gift bas-
kets to delegates because the congre-
gations hold values that are contrary to
the party platform. Charlotte714 is a
group of more than 100 churches
across the region that mobilized pray
for the Democratic Convention. David
Benham, the lead organizer of the
movement, said that 56 churches want-
ed to Adopt-A-Delegation. "We were
just trying to display Southern hospi-
tality. I got a call from the mayor's
office speaking on behalf of the con-
vention and they asked us not to par-
ticip.ate,' he said. "They told us our'
views on women's rights are contrary
to the platform." So instead of gift bas-
kets, Benham asked if they could send
welcome letters to the delegates.
Again, he said the DNC refused.
Benham said it is true that all the
churches are pro-life but the baskets
did not include a single political or pro-
life message. They just wanted to give
them regional candies and a welcome
Muslim groups had a prominent
role at the Democratic National
Convention in Charlotte. The DNC
opened its convention with a two-hour
Muslim Jumah prayer. There was a
Muslim banquet, an Islamic Cultural
Fest and a Muslim Town Hall Issues
Conference all during the convention.
It was reported 20,000 Muslims attend-
ed the convention.
)One of those invited to attend the
convention was Iman Seraj Wahhaj.
Here is a statement he made not too
long ago, and I quote, "It is our duty as
Muslims to replace the United States
constitution with the Muslim caliphate:
(Caliphate is the traditional Islamic
form of government, presided over by
a caliph, either appointed (by who?)

or elected (by who?) who is consid-
ered the political leader of all Muslims).
(Definition of caliph "leaders of Islamic
religion. Some Muslims will not sup-
port any caliph but a blood descen-
dant of Muhammad, others support a
blood descendant of Muawiya, who
was a brother-in-law of Muhammad.
Others feels like a caliph should be
chosen for his abilities as a great spir-
itual leader.")
America was founded on freedom of
religion, it became a Republic to get
away from being dictated what reli-
gion they were to follow. This is insan-
ity what is happening.
With the events centered about
Islam perhaps it should be called
Democratic Muslim, National
Convention. We Americans should be
concerned about this, as it speaks vol-
umes about the Islamic ties to the
Democratic Party. Yes, another Obama
term would definitely mean fast
advancement Civilization Jihad in
America. The DNC is making sure the
American Muslim population gets their
national spotlight in exchange for votes
because they know that the majority of
Christian Democrats will vote
Democratic regardless of the ties and
support with Islam. They did last time,
and they are counting on them to do
the same this time. Will you?
It has been said that according to
the Quran, Christians as well as all

certs plus its first ever Smooll ]Jazz

.The tim begins Ionight when
Gralily-nominated pianist David
Benoit performs in the tented pavilion at
the Omnni Resorts Amelia Island
Plantation. Opening will be Gypsy
Rendezvous with the Dynamic Les
DleMerle Band, featuring sultry vocalist
Bonnie Eiscle and sensational jazz vio-
linist Doug Cameron.
Tomorrow evening the legendary
Spyro Gyra will hit the stage at the

Both concerts will run from 7-10 p.m.

Known as a major influence in the
Smooth Jazz genre, Benoit's prolific out-
put boasts several prominent Charlie
Brown related projects (including
"Mere's To You, Charlie Brown: 50
Great Years" and the star-studded "40
Years: A Charlie Brown Christmas")
that reflect his lifelong passion for the
music of original Peanutts composer

*We're going to close it all
out with a swinging show
and we're hoping that some
very special guests willjoin
us as well.'

Vince Guaraldi.
Benoit's notable film scores include
"The Stars Fell on Henrietta," produced
by Clint Eastwood and starring Robert
Duvall; and "The Christmias Tree," pro-

member, bandleader and superb saxo-
phonist Jay Beckenstein, grew up listen-
ing to the nmsic of Louis Armstrong,
Charlie Parker, Sonny Rollins and Dizzy
Gillespie, and lie has incorporated those
influences into the group's overall
In their e hrliest days, Spyro Gyra
took their cues from groundbreaking
acts like Weather Report and Return to

Forever bands whose creative flights
were fieh'ld l)y a willingness to do
things that1 had nllver been done before.
"I believed Ilia we were springing from
what Weather Report did," says
Beckenstein. "I1 never thought in com-
mercial terms. I just thought they were
the next step in the evolution of jazz,
and that we would be part of it."
The festival will close with the all

month at the Religious Support Office
conference room at Fort Gordon, Ga.,
the U.S. Army corrected a 46-year-old
In June 1966, then first lieutenant
Dennis Moorehead heroically distin-
guished himself in battle during the
Vietnam War. Although paperwork was
put for the medal for him at the time,
Moorehead. who lives on Amelia
Island, thinks it fell through the cracks
and was probably lost or misplaced.
This past April, the Army Decoration
Board reviewed his case and approved
the award of the Silver Star for his gal-
Tihe former Army Ranger and phra-'
trooper completed his service with the
Army and separated with an honorable
discharge as a captain. The newly
signed citation reflects that rank. But it
was courage under fire as a lieutenant
that earned him the Silver Star, which is
the third highest military decoration
that can be awarded to a member of any
branch of the United States armed
forces for valor in the face of the enemy.
During the ceremony Col. Robert A.
Barker, the U.S. Army Garrison com-
mander, presented the medal to
Moorehead before his friends and fami-
ly, including his mother, Gainette
Moorehead of Evans, Ga.: his wife,
Cynthia; their five daughters Cassie,
Denny, Alexis, Mimi and Paris;, and his
13 young grandchildren. Several of his
friends and family traveled as far away
as Missouri, Maryland, Florida and
Alabama to be there to witness this sig-
nificant-event in the Moorehead family.
Barker explained that only a few sol-
diers ever receive the Silver Star. "It is
given only in cases where it was clearly
earned through courage in the face of
the enemy and service above and
beyond the call of duty," he said.

"He did not stop fighting despite his
wounds and being heavily outnum-
bered," added Barker. "He gave of him-

order to save his comrades. No more
can be asked of a man in uniform."
Barker added that Moorehead put
the welfare of others before his own
safety, and exemplified values of the
Army that continue to be instilled in
today's generation of soldiers.
After receiving the medal,
Moorehead, said, "I accept this honor
not foi me, but for my brothers

Dennis Moorehead led a
small group of six soldiers
into an attack on a company-
sized element.of'North

less than whole."
lThe former platoon leader of A
Company, Second Battalion. 16th
Infar try Reginlnt, 1st. Infantry
Division, later was joined at the award
ceremony by his former company com-
mander and platoon operations officer
in Vietnam, retired Col. J.K. Griffin, and
Sgt. Gene Mayer. one of the six soldiers
that saved the company during the
ambush in 1966.
"We had about 130 men in our com-
pany." recalled Moorehead. "I believe
the three of us are what is left of the
company now."
Moorehead used a grenade launcher
to subdue the attack in Vietnam during
that ambush. Mayer said, "After he
(Moorehead) was shot he asked me to
take the RTO (field radio)."
"Once the fighting ended it took
about 45 minutes for the wounded to be
(medically evacuated) out of the area,"
explained Moorehead. Mayer recently
was presented the Purple Heart medal
for the wounds he received during that
battle in the Republic of Vietnam.
"I am just glad I was still alive to
receive this honor, and it was not given
posthumously," Moorehead said. His
wife Cynthia echoed similar sentiments.
"I hope and pray all Vietnam vets in
some way know they are appreciated."

are represented by each automobile! A group goal is to share this with others as we
love unique cars.
This month, on Saturday, Oct. 20, Cars and Conversation meets at the
Waterwheel Amelia Island Cigar Shop and Gallery (at A1A and Scott Road). A leg-
end member will share adventures of North Italy's auto dreamland of exotic auto
design and production from a recent visit to Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati,
Bertone, Alfa, Pininfarina etc.
"Legends" is not a club but simply a group of like-minded preservationist car
owners whose average car age is 30 years old. All car enthusiasts are invited and if
possible, bring out that cool legend vehicle to talk about from 9 til noon at the
Waterwheel Amelia Island Cigar Shop.

Legend cars are the stuff of conversation at the monthly meeting of like-minded motoring enthusi-
asts, at the Waterwheel Amelia Island Cigar Shop, above.
