(Well, some days.) Finally, its spring! S ome of the earliest signs of spring in our ar ea seem more like fall further north. Youve probably noticed all the red foliage on tr ees in our ar e a. Our red maples are showier in spring than in the fall. A month or so ago most maples in our area displayed red blooms on all the bare branches, and later the r ed winged sama ra, their seeds that are surr ounded by papery wings took their turn turning the tree to red. You might remember these maple seeds from your youth. Accor ding to naturalist Carl Watson, here in the South kids call them helicopters as they spin to the gr ound. Up nor th many of us used to split the two winged segments and put them on our noses. Carls had a number of northerners on his tours of Willow Pond at Fort Clinch, who put them on their noses still in remembrance of their youth. With red maples, this phase of the tr ee ends when the leaves themselves come in, and yes, they are red too. And, like autumn further north, early spring here is a time of falling leaves. Our many grand live oak tr ees always have leaves on them thus their name but when the weather war ms up, like now the old leaves fall to the ground as new leaves replace them. If you drive down one of our beautiful canopy roads now it seems like autumn, withd ead leaves raini ng down everyw her e. Those people with live oaks near their homes know what I mean. Forget about mowing lawns right now. Its time to rake leaves! Spring is also a time for wild flowering trees and shrubs in north Florida. You dont have to look far to see pink and white azalea and camellia shrubs, light pink redbud trees and a few dogwoods. Dogwoods dont do as well here near the sea as they do in other par ts of Florida, but those few that we have brighten up the scene with beautiful white flowers. A few weeks ago white flowers on cherry laurels and black cherries in Fort Clinch State Park also added to the splendor A few landscape shrubs here ar e in bloom as well. Indian hawthor ns with their white or pink blossoms and lorepetalums can be astonishing with their pink flowers and purplish new leaves, as long as they didnt get pruned in the summer when they set their flower buds. Despite the spring flowers ar ound us, many of us living her e ar e transplanted from the north, PHOTOS BY PAT FOSTER-TURLEY/FOR THE NEWS-LEADER S aucer magnolia shrubs, top left, lorepetalum, top right, freesias, above left, and daffodils, above right, herald spring in Pat FosterT urley s yar d in Fer nandina Beach.

and for us spring means flowering bulbs. Daffodils, hyacinths, tulips, crocuses all of these flowers spring from bulbs frozen invisibly in t he soil all winter and finally s prouting to life and bloomi ng when the weather warms u p. It is generally not cold enough long enough for most of these flower bulbs to perform at their best, or at all, here in north Florida. But luckily ther e ar e some excep tions. For years now Ive been planting ranunculus and fr eesia bulbs in the fall in my yard. And now in March Im reaping the benefits of pretty blooms in my front flowerbed and plenty of blooms for cutting that I grow in a side yard just for that purpose. Hyacinths and daffodils are more problematic to gr ow here, but not impossible. At least one variety of daffodil is adapted to our climate and can sometimes be seen in abandoned yardst hr oughout the area. Most d affodils are another story, but they can be forced into blooming her e nonetheless. Each fall I buy daffodil bulbs of different varieties, and hyacinth bulbs too. For months the vegetable drawer in my refrigerator is filled to the brim with bulbs, chilling out until Januar y, when I plant them in the gr ound or in pots of soil. For weeks now Ive been enjoying the scent of fresh hyacinths in pots in my house and the sight of daf fodils and freesias greeting visitors to my front door. When I want even more color for my house I sacrifice a few daffodils and freesias from my front yard, and a handful of ranunculus flowers fr om my cutting gar den and fill vases around my house with fresh blooms. Y es, spring is her e in north Florida one way or a nother Take a look around a nd enjoy the blooms and the weather. It may turn cold today but summer will be here all too soon, and right now its time to just stop and smell the blossoms all ar ound us. Spring in nor th Florida is definitely the place to be!

This development calls for m uch smaller homes than what i s being built in the rest of the subdivision, said King. From what the developer has told me, theyll be smaller homes for single people or couples without kids, and that fills a void too. King noted a growing trend l ocally for well-appointed homes w ith smaller lot sizes and s quare footage. The McMansion days are over, said King.

A n eight-seat table for the event costs $160, and there is no c ounty funding to cover the expense. But the board is still planning to attend the popular luncheon. C ommissioners Pat Edwards and Steve Kelley said at t he board meeting March 19 that they will each buy a table f or the event through their businesses, RPM Lumber in Yulee and Kelley Pest Control in Fernandina, respectively. Their colleagues on the b oard, including Commissioners Danny Leeper, Walter Jr B oatright and Chair Barry Holloway, offered to personally c ontribute money from their wallets, but that idea was politely rejected. Both Edwards and Kelley s aid they would write off the ticket cost as a businesse xpense. The board could have used m oney from the countys general operating fund to cover the cost for the volunteer luncheon, as staff suggested, but no one on the board supported this idea. So, the money from E dwards and Kelley may be viewed as a goodwill offer or a f inancial necessity. Previously, the board purchased tickets to the event, held to honor Nassau Countys many volunteers, using money from a $2,500 discretionary fund assigned to each commiss ioner. Those funds no longer exist. T hey were eliminated last year in a token effort to help cover a $4.5 million shortfall in the budget for fiscal 2013-14. Typically, commissioners used the money to buy such things as sporting equipment and uniforms for youth athletic leagues, or to cover rental fees o n meeting halls for Scout troops when free public facilitiesa t libraries and churches were unavailable. T he discretionary accounts had at one time reached $5,000 per commissioner, but the amount was reduced over budgetary concerns, before eventually going away. Several years ago, Clerk of C ourts John Crawford criticized board members for using the m oney to buy candy to hand out to children during Shrimp Festival, the communitys largest annual event held the first full weekend of May. The Nassau County Volunteer Center is a nonprofit o rganization primarily funded through the United Way. The 2 9th annual volunteer awards luncheon is scheduled for April 24 from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Atlantic Recreation Center.

You run a division of a public company. The division sells a very profitable produ ct but you learn that the manufacturing process caus-e s serious injuries to people involved in the production of t he product. You do research and discover there is a different process that will produce the product without causing these injuries which is only 1 0 percent more expensive. You develop your case anda sk for a meeting with the CEO who previously ran y our division. You are sure he will be happy with your discovery and be appreciative of your ingenuity. Unfortunately, dont run out and buy that new Porsche, because in many cases you w ill be wrong! New best sellers, Duty by Robert Gates, and An Officer a nd A Spy b y Robert Harris, d iscuss the frustration, a nger and sometimes pain which result when wellm eaning people try to do what they truly believe is the right thing. Despite Gates criticizing President Obama in the book as uncommitteda nd Vice President Joe Biden as well-meaning but a lways wrong, my read is that the book is really about h is frustration and anger created when fighting to change ingrained negative policies of institutions like the Ar my the VA hospitals and the Air Force so that the men and women doing the fightinga r e safer better pr otected a nd receiving the best care a nd treatment possible. Gates, operating within the system, lays out a number of examples wher e the troops suffer or, as with the officers operating the dr ones, ar e not r ewar d ed d ue to political, petty and s hort-sighted reasons. He d ifferentiates issues like going after Osama bin Laden and supporting the surge in Afghanistan, wher e even though the objective is worthy, there is a big downside that pr ovides good r eason f or people to vote no. What h e hates is when the people w ho speak against changes that will help the soldiers lack experience and have reasons that are purely political or economic. His best e xample concernss oldiers losing limbs a nd dying due to IEDs in Iraq because they are util izing Hummersa nd Abrams tanks when t here is another vehicle, the MRAP, available that will stop 99 percent of the losses. He is frustrated and infuriated because, for three years, economics and the belief that t he MRAPs wont be needed in future wars has stymied suitable action. Gates is p roud of what he was able to a ccomplish in these areas b ut when, as with Karl Eikenberry, Ambassador to A fghanistan, he is unable to get President Obama to do the right thing, he stayed within the system, never putting his job or reputation inj eopardy. The hero of Mr. Harris b ook, Georges Picquart, was faced with a smaller and less p opular objective but a much more difficult and dangerous task. Discovering that Alfred Dr eyfus, a wealthy Jewish officer of the French Army, whom he did not like, was wr ongly convicted of spying f or the Ger mans and sen t enced for life to imprisonm ent on Devils Island, he went all out in pursuit of justice. In so doing, he took on the top ranks of the Fr ench military, some of whom were guilty of fabricating the evidence against Dr eyfus and n ot only almost r uined his o wn life, but also badly h armed the lives of friends, family and even his legal counsel, as the Army leaders pursued him as if he wer e the traitor. In any job whether its politics, business, spor ts ( r emember Penn State) or t he military, one of the t oughest decisions concerns confronting someone or a group of people above you, who have been involved in a bad or dishonest decision. My sense is that while George Picquart was ultim ately successful in overturning the Dreyfus convic-t ion, very few people would have fought through the pain a nd anguish involved. On the other hand, while Gates deserves credit for what he accomplished, he never threatened his or his familys l ivelihood while he was in his position. In fact, even whenh e believed that President Obama deceived him, he did n ot fight back until after he walked away. The real question is when confronted with something you feel is wrong, what action do you take? While you may be rewarded in a l ater life for doing the right thing, your experience in this life may not be as pleasa nt. Therefore, the first thing y ou must do is realistically r eview the situation and evaluate whether there is anothe r legitimate side. If, as in the Dreyfus case, you decide there is not, then you had better explore, along with a professional expert, thep otential upsides and downsides of the different actions y ou might take and evaluate whether you and your family a re willing to pay the price. If not, then you probably should be prepared to walk away rather than fight, as putting your head down and going along with the situation may come back and bitey ou (r emember Joe P aterno). E verybody is not cut out to be a hero, and the truth is that sometimes it is better to leave so you can fight anoth er day. However, if you do decide to go forward and do what you believe is the rightt hing, don t kid yourself that t he forces you are taking on a nd their allies will embrace you or even fight fair! Therefore, do everything you can to pr otect yourself and your family before the fight begins.

Steve Rieck routinely bottom fishes for flounder, but hes not opposed to embarking on deeper waters for bigg er game like marlin. Rieck heads up the Nassau C ounty Economic Development Board. Hes trying to discover the right bait to make the right catch whether small businesses or large industries. Hungry, and ready to come here. T he small businesses represent the flounder; they are e asier to catch, and afford value through their numbers. The marlin is major industry, more difficult to find and attract. S omething the undet erred Rieck is still seeking. e do a lot of flounder fishing int his business, Rieck says. As Nassau County tries to lure new businesses, other North Florida areas have been get-t ing bites. A global real estate firm paid $135 million for a p roperty alongside the St. Johns Town Center in J acksonville. Houston-based Hines Global Investment acquir e d the Markets at Town Center, nestled between the Town Center and Costco Wholesales tor e. Meanwhile, Rimr ock D evelopment bought one of t he few remaining out parcels at the Town Center, paying $2 million for only one-third of an acr e. And one of the largest owners of the Town Center is expected to sell his lucrativeh olding. This will likely draw a m ajor real estate company, l ike Hines, which have mostly avoided Jacksonville in the past. Rieck likes how Nassau County is positioned for the potential boom in North Florida. The highways, railroads and ports accessible throughout North Florida make for a desirable package for new industries. Meanwhile, I think our message is getting out, Rieck s ays. For starters, Rieck and other local officials are in negotiations to put an elementary school and a recreational park on Rayoniers Terra Pointe tract in Yulee. The site is across A1A from William Burgess Boulevard (which runs back to the Nassau County Judicial Annex and the F lorida State College camp us). A new YMCA is also r eported to be considering his s ite. A school, park and gym is a mixed-use, groundbreaking package that Rieck could then sell to others. I can bring in interested prospects, Rieck says. Heres the vision. Heres thes chool. Heres the park. T hings start to take root, then o ther things happen. Rieck is equally excited about the pr o spects of the Crawford Diamond, a prepackaged industrial site further to the west that is also owned by Rayonier. The site isl ocated on an expanding US 3 01 in Bryceville, and is being t outed under the states Enterprise Florida initiative (Gov Rick Scott visited it a few months ago, in fact). In fact, the state sees so much pr omise and appeal in the Crawfor d Diamond that it considers it a game changeri n Floridas ability to compete for major projects, Rieck says. The sites perfect location (proximity to a metropolitan airport, two major railroads and various shipping ports) should eventually attract large industry. A nd, once one industry moves in, others will follow in a herding effect. We expect thats what is going to happen here, Rieck says. A major industry is worth the wait. A notable economic firm researched the impact that a substantial industry (food processing plant, manufacturing o peration, etc.) would have on N assau County. Fishkind & A ssociates found that a typical f ood processing operation w ould require a 140,000s quare-foot building through an investment of $11 million. This would create 100 jobs at the plant, but another 200 throughout the community. A manufacturing plant w ould create 625 new jobs and t wice that amount in the comm unity through its investment and the wages it pays employees and other fir m s to service it. This impact would be cumulative, Rieck says. Just as fishing r equir es patience, so does searching f or major industries. But it o nly takes one bite, and the h ook is set.

HEATHER A. PERRY News-Leader B i ll and Carolyn Dwyer love making beautiful things. The talented artists create dazzling island-t hemed jewelry at their design studio inside The Mermaids Walk on Eighth Street. Opened in February, the s hop features the couples unique sterling silver lost wax c ast charms and flame work glass beads set into bracelets, p endants and other adornables. The shop also serves as a learning center for other budding artisans when the D wyers teach metalsmithing, soldering, wirework, bezel-sett ing sea glass and how to wrap or set found objects. Classes s tart at $20 with basic materials included. They also share their expertise in flamework, fused glass and enameling. e do workshops most afternoons and we often dod rop-in and demonstrations, but it is best to stop by or call a head to schedule a specific topic or if youd like toa rrange for a group, said C arolyn Dwyer. P erhaps the most intriguing classes involve the latest development in duplication, the 3-D printer. e offer computer classes concentrating on 2-D and 3-D design and 3-D printing, said B ill Dwyer, showing off two c hess pieces he made on the M akerbot printer. Anything you can draw on the computer can now be exported to a 3-D printer. Its an enormous push into the future. Its not so much the big things, but the little things that people will star t to take a dvantage of this technology A fter living in California for 2 7 years, the Dwyers ar e familiar with the concept of S.T.E.A.M., science, technology, engineering, art and math. Heres its S.T.E.M. and were pretty much about integrating ar t into the technolo g y. T oward that end, sliding s cale or no char g e design classes for youth in need ar e offered at the studio as well as one-on-one assistance for high school students who needhelp with college applications. e also donate items r egu larly to other organizations, s aid Dwyer. For example, we d onated our signatur e mer maid pendant for the Film Festivals silent auction this year. Also showing off their artistry at the shop are Dwight and Marla Southwell of Lavenders Blue. Theirc halk painted furniture, handb uilt weathered wood, natural stains and finishes are featur e d in the shops window display. Br owsers will also find Harlows All Natural soap, incense, sprayers and cleaners. A selection of housewares, garden ornaments and other vintage items round out the shops inventory. The Dwyers met in high school in New Jersey r eceiv ing their undergrad degrees fr om Johns Hopkins University Carolyn passed the California bar and began working as a lawyer and Billheaded to a career in architecture. It just never seemed to fit for me, notes Dwyer of his 10 years in that field so he moved into video game design. I felt more a part of that tribe than I ever felt in architecture. While Carolyn draws on the patience, perseverance and time management skills lear ned during her law days, both admit theyre where their hear ts have always longed to be making art. Carolyn studied art at California College of Arts and Crafts back when it was CCAC (now it is California College of the Arts, or CCA), Academy of Ar t, and in the jewelry program at College of Marin, after which she worked for Mike Chaille Fine Jewelry, and also worked for two years at Studio 311, a custom goldsmith and jewelr y casting shop in Northern California. Her most recent studies wer e with Joe and Anat Silvera at Silvera Jewelry School in Berkeley, Calif. Bill learned his craft on his own through various videos and seminars, and now forms color ful glass beads using a torch and glass rods. Carolyn makes beautiful sterling silver char ms using the centrifugal casting. Between the two, they create the exquisite pieces for sale in the shop. With over 20 years making jewelry, the couple is a frequent exhibitor at the F ernandina Beach Arts M arket, but the shop is their f irst foray into a brick and mortar business. Gratitude must be expressed, they emphasized, to T racy Nazarro at the Small Business Development Center to Drs. Joe and E lizabeth Lee at the Arts M arket and to realtor Phil G riffin. e really couldnt have done all this without them, said Car olyn Dwyer The couple moved here in 2005. Carolyn had been coming her e since the 1960s to v isit an aunt. I took pottery at the Rec C enter and that was a huge summer memory And now shes back to make ar t happen her e Its definitely a circle.

A NGELA DAUGHTRY N e ws-Leader Nassau County Sheriff deputies ar r ested two teenagers and an adult March 2 2 for robbery by sudden s natching in a restaurant parki ng lot at US 1 in Callahan, according to reports. A woman told deputies that while she was cashing a check for $1,100 at a local store, she noticed people in a black car who later became suspects in the case. A manda Kay Godwin, 32, W hispering Pines Trailer Park, C allahan, one of thr e e sus pects, told deputies during questioning that she and two teenage boys wer e at the stor e while the victim cashed the check for several hundred dollars, ac-c or ding to a s heriffs off ice report. As Godwin got back into the vehi cle with the teens, sher epor tedly s tated that she wished she h ad money like the woman c ashing the check, accor d ing to reports.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 7A W EDNESDAY M ARCH 26, 2014 OPINION News-Leader VOICE OF THE PEOPLE S S t t . M M i i c c h h a a e e l l s s e e x x p p a a n n s s i i o o n n W hen will the tree murder end? R on Sapp got it right (Mar ch 19) Bottom line: people like tr e es! I went to an Historic District Council meeting Mar c h 20 and learned St. Michaels is enlarging their parking lot to hold 48 cars with valet parking. (Some things just defy reasoning.) To get in the maximumn umber of cars, they will have to d estr oy a 29-foot magnolia tr ee. But t hat is per m issible with our city tree ordinance. All they have to do is say they will plant 10 small tr e es. First the airport, then the golf course. Where will it end? I would like to see them throw out the current tree ordinance and start over. Slap a big fat fine on anybody takingo ut a big healthy tr ee. Is the cur r ent ordinance even being enforced? If anyone is interested in getting involved in our envir o nmental pr o b lems, please come to the T echnical Review Committee meting at City Hall on Thursday, at 9 a.m. Maybe this is the place to start. Lets find a way to save the trees. Concer ned. J oan Bean Fernandina Beach The pr oposed plan for solving the city parking problem and improving traffic flow (Feb. 21 not work. In fact, it will achieve the exact opposite of what is intended and will have many undesirable consequences. This should be a major concern not only for residents of the affected area, but for all taxpayers that dont want to see their money foolishly wasted. In summary, the proposal is to implement alter nating, one-way traf fic flow with angled parking on one side of the str eet for Nor th Second thr ough Nor th Sixth, bounded on the south by Alachua becoming oneway westward and Broome on the north being one-way eastward. Currently, most of this area has twoway traffic flow and permits parallel parking on both sides of the str eet except on Alachua and Broome. Her e ar e the r easons the proposed plan is highly defective: It will actually decrease the amount of available parking spaces. You cannot eliminate one full street side of parallel parking and expect that angled parking on the other side will make up the dif fer ence. The geometry (plus allowances for driveways, tur ning radiuses and intersection visibility) shows that it just cant happen given the existing width of the streets in this area, which restrict the parking angle to 60 degrees maximum. In fact, this is clearly demonstrated by comparing the first block of Nor th Sixth Str eet (one-way with parallel parking on both sides) to the first block of North Fifth Street (one-way with 60degree angled parking on one side). Both streets are equal width and have comparable driveway breaks, yet there are 33 marked parallel parking spaces on North Sixth compar ed to only 22 marked angled parking spaces on North Fifth. Yes, a 33 per cent reduction in available parking resulted from implementing exactly what is in the proposed plan! It will incr ease the number of traffic accidents. Although sometimes disputed, the preponderance of detailed studies looking into the matter show that traffic accidents incr ease when on-street parking is changed from parallel to head-in angled. This is expected since there is a marked increase in distance and time that a car spends in r e verse motion combined with a tur n ing motion when exiting an angled park ing spot compared to exiting a parallel parking spot. The situation is different when backing to enter a parallel parking spot since trafficb ehind the parking vehicle is already f orced to a stop. Angled parking is consider ed danger ous by cycling organizations. The city of Boca Raton, in their Engineering Design Standar ds, page 22, conclude: Onstreet parallel parking is preferred over angled parking on low speed urban streets. Angled parking causes conflicts with cars and bicycles, since drivers have poor visibility when backing out. It will increase visual pollution in the Historic District. Ther e will be a massive incr ease in street traffic signs in the Historic District if the change to one-way traffic flow is implemented. Per Florida DOT Florida Greenbook referenced FHWA MUTCD standards, the city will need to put up numer ous OneWay, Do Not Enter, Left (Right T ur n Only, One Way Traffic Ahead and Two-Way Traffic Ahead signs on the cor ners of affected intersections. Think how visually appealing this will be for residents and visitors! And this would be in addition to the adverse visual impact of marking the str eets for angled parking slots. It likely will incr ease, not decrease, traffic congestion. By todays standards, all of the streets in the subject area are rightfully considered as narrow and not easily widened. Unlike parallel parking, angled parking can result in the rear por tions of parked vehicles extend ing into the proposed single lane of traf fic. Combined, these facts increase the odds that vehicles such as large trucks, large vans and RVs that are parked in angled slots will impede traffic passing in the remaining amount of street width. These passing vehicles themselves may be r elatively wide, such as deliver y trucks, buses, garbage trucks, ambulances or fire trucks. Traffic will slow down as a result. Another scenario: haven t we all experienced at one time or another having to wait behind someone who has stopped in a one-way lane of a park ing lot and just wont move until a parking space opens up ahead. Who thinks that won t happen occasion ally at the busiest times downtown? Yet another scenario: How easily will traffic flow when a driver perhaps new to Fernandina or just not paying attention to signs goest he wrong way down a one-way s treet, meets an oncoming vehicle and r ealizes ther e is insuf ficient room for both vehicles to squeeze past each other due to cars that ar e angle parked? One final note on this: with oneway traffic directions alternating street-to-street, it is a simple fact that, on average, drivers must travel a further distance to find an open parking space or to ar rive at a r esi dence or other destination (e.g., chur ch) than they would with twoway traf fic allowed this translates to an actual increase in the amount of traffic moving on the road averaged over a given area for a given time period. Ron Sapp (March 5) offered additional, cogent r emarks on this sub ject that are pertinent and valid, concluding the pr oposed plan is an overreaction to a non-problem. Full disclosur e: I own family property within the area proposed for these changes. I leave it to the readers to judge if this diminishes the validity of the above statements. Gor don Dr essler Manhattan Beach, Calif. Its been common knowledge around town that St. Michaels church members are in turmoil over the expansion of the beautiful old (circa 1872) church. Most members do not want the expansion because they believe, though legal, it would be immoral. Why? Because during weekend masses, the streets surrounding St. Michaels are overcrowded with vehicular traffic. Residents in surrounding homes fear for their own health and safety whenever a rescue and/or fire truck is needed. Drivers of these vehicles have found it almost impossible at times to reach a home where someone is in distress and needs immediate transpor tation to the hospital. Also, residents are often unable to leave their homes because of blocked driveways. The church expansion would double these pr o blems. T r ees near St. Michael s would also suf fer. Plans are to immediately begin the construction of a 48-car parking lot complete with valet parking behind the church rectory on NorthF ifth Street. T his would require cutting trees, including a beautiful magnolia. Since Fernandina Beach has no str ong tr ee or dinance, these trees ar e scheduled to be destroyed to make way for the asphalt parking lot. All these problems could be alleviated if the planned St. Michaels parish church, St. Francis of Assisi in Y ulee, wer e to be built on pr op erty already bought and paid for. The only addition that should take place at St. Michael s is a historic marker to stand in front of the 140-year old church. Anything else is just plain crazy! Willyne Blanchard Fernandina Beach The Historic District Council met last Thursday to discuss the approval of material needed for the parking lot between the parish house and the parish office. What a surprise, another new plan. Now they want to put 48 parking spaces in this small area. It would be valet parking. T o fit all these cars in you turn your keys over to whoever and then the first one in is the last one out. How long will it take to park all these cars and who is going to be liable for damage? The area will be fronted by trees or bushes, no wonder its really ugly. We will have to cut down three trees, including a ver y old magnolia. What will be the cost? Do we need to add lighting or a security system? Our church was built 140 years ago at the time of the horse and buggy. We cant add 72 more parking spots in a very confined area. Maybe its time to say leave the chur ch alone. No one is making money on this but the architect who has to keep coming up with new plans. Ther e is a meeting this Thursday at 9 a.m. in City Hall. We need your input. Rosanne Jameson Fernandina Beach Life, a day at a time Jill Gabrielle Klein hears it all the time from business executives: How can we get through this down economy and come out strong at the end? Klein has good answers. Shes a professor of marketing at the University ofM elbourne in Australia, and she leads semin ars for executives all over the world. But w hen she wants to drive home her point about resilience, she calls on her 86-year-old father Gene Klein. Gene Klein is a Holocaust survivor. For my dad, she said in a telephone interview, itw as taking it one day at a t ime. ... That s a good les s on for all of us dealing with difficult times breaking it down to just one day at a time. And at the end of her fathers talk, executives stand and applaud. Ther esponse is overwhelmi ng, Jill Klein said. G ene Klein back then he was called Gabi was just 16 in the spring of 1944, when Nazi soldiers for ced him and his family fr om their home, all destined for Auschwitz, the notorious death camp in German-occupied Poland. Herman andB er tha Klein, along with their three children Lilly Oli and Gabi wer e among more t han 400,000 Hungarian Jews rounded up and sent to concentration camps. By the end of World War II, an estimated six million Jews had perished at the hands of a mania cal dictator. Herman Klein was one of them. But Bertha and her children were somehow spared, spending the end of the war in slave labor camps. They all r etur n ed home a miracle in itself. Jill Klein has written a book about the familys ordeal. Its called We Got the Water: T racing My Familys Path Through Auschwitz. The title comes from a note her Aunt Lilly wrote about being herded with countless others into a room filled with showerheads. From those showerheads came water Exter mination chambers, on the other hand, often had fake showerheads to keep the prisoners fr om panicking. Only poison gas fell from above. Ive r ead Jill Kleins compelling book and interviewed her father. I still cant fathom the horrors the Kleins and millions of others suffered during Hitlers reign. I can only say that I understand why director Steven Spielber g filmed the movie Schindler s List in black-and-white. He said he didnt want to pr ettify any images of the Holocaust. Horrific as it was, through all the forced labor, at one time carrying train rails a skinny kid shouldnt be able to carry, Gabi Klein never gave up. He couldnt understand why a prisoner would throw himself against the camp s electrified fence, causing instant death. If I gave up, that meant they (the Nazis won, he said from his home at The Villages in Florida. So when he was liberated by the Russians in the spring of 1945, the first thing he told himself was, I want to enjoy life. He does enjoy life. He is a survivor. He knows r esilience. And for himself, his family and millions of others, Gene Gabi Klein deserves a standing ovation.

Box 16766, Fer nandina Beach, FL., 32035 E-mail: mpar nell@fbnewsleader com. visit us on-line at fbnewsleader .com O n March 25, 1911, in New York City, 146 garment workers died in the Triangle ShirtW aist Fire (123 women and 23 men died as a result of the doors being locked to the stairw ell and exits). Many of them jumped to their death. The fire led to improved safety standards through legislation. The International Ladies Garment Workers Union was also formed as a r esult of fighting for better working conditions for sweatshop workers. U nions date back to Colonial and Revolutionary America. Men and women have d ied for the rights of the working class. In 1895, there were nine large unions ranked in America: Typographical, Cigar Makers, Railroad Trainmen, Locomotive Firemen, Iron Molders, Railway Conductors, Brick Layers a nd Steel Workers. In 1953, some of the larger unions were UAW, Teamsters, Steelworkers,C arpenters, Machinists and Electrical Workers. Today, some of the largest unions a re the NEA, SEIU, AFSCME, Teamsters, UFCW and AFT. Recently a letter was published prompting me to write this. Unions across America have been ridiculed recently through ignorance and i ndifference. Whether you are a supporter of unions or not, there are many reasons youm ay not know that are a result of a union. If you are fortunate to have a job, you benefit f rom rights that have been fought for. Here is a list of reasons you may not have thought of: B ecause of a union member, do you know t hat having the luxury of being off on weekends, having a 15-minute break during the day along with a lunch br e ak is a direct result of a union fighting for this right? Having a paid vacation, Family Medical Leave Act, sick leave, Social Security, minimum wage, Civil Rights Act/Title VII proh ibits employer discrimination, the 8-hour w ork day, overtime pay, child labor laws, O ccupational Safety & Health Act (OSHA hour work week, workers compensation,u nemployment insurance, pensions, workplace safety standards and regulations, e mployer health care insurance, collective bargaining rights for employees, wrongful termination laws, age discriminations in Employment Act of 1967, whistleblower termination laws, Employee Polygraph Act (EPPA)p rohibits employers from using a lie detector test on an employee, Veterans Employmenta nd Training services (VETS increases and evaluations (i.e., raises h arassment laws, Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA, employer dental, life and vision insurance, privacy rights, pregnancy and parental leave, military leave, the right to strike, public education for children, Equal P ay Acts of 1963 and 2011 requires employers to pay men and woman equally for thes ame amount of work, laws ending sweatshops in the United States. I m sure those of you who are reading this enjoy many of the above rights that a union member fought for. That is why I felt compelled to write this article, to help bring the truth to light of the misconceptions many peop le have regarding unions. Unions are good and beneficial to the working class. The nextt ime you hear someone criticize a union or union member, think about what benefits c ome from being a union member. Some of the working class are not fortunate to have a u nion in their work place, but they still enjoy t he benefits of what has been fought for throughout history. Jason Levi, an accomplished musician and member of the American Federation of Musicians, said, Now I appreciate how unions help members. I wish I had joined the union from the very start. The benefits of belonging t o a union really help both on and off the job. T o be honest, I now cant think of a single d ownside to belonging to the union. The Nassau County School Board is fortun ate to have a teachers union (NTA) and Noninstructional Support Staff Union (NESPA). O ver the years, many accomplishments have been made as a result of the men and woman who have sat at the table and collectively bargained each year. Continually we bargain insurance, wages, contract language and safet y. We take pride in these benefits and negotiated language on our jobs as we work dailyw ith the students and staff. John F. Kennedy summed up in a quote, Our labor unions are not narrow selfseeking groups. They have raised wages, shortened hours and provided supplemental benefits. Through collective bargaining and grievance procedures, they have brought justice and d emocracy to the shop floor Bargaining and working together. Let me r epeat, working together. Listening and brainstorming ideas. No one person thinks alike. It t akes a combined effort with an open mind to obtain benefits and language through this process. It is a give and take. The process has worked for many years. Thus, we have history that we can look b ack over the years to truly see the broad picture of just how important unions are. A s we approach the anniversary of the tragedy of the Triangle Shirt Waste Fire, lets r emember those who died on this tragic day. Let us also remember those who fought for t he rights that we enjoy today. Through the c ollaborative bargaining process, we can accomplish better working conditions, better pay and safer working conditions on the job. Thank a union member today. Marian Phillips ONeal is president of the Nassau Educational Support Personnel Association and a member of the Florida AFLC IO Executive Board, NEA LFT 2010 and N EA and AFT union member.

C C a a r r s s h h o o l l d d u u p p t t r r a a i i n n According to a city police report, 11 vehicles w ere parked so close to the west side of the Front Street railroad tracks on March 8 that several had t o be towed, and trains were held up for an hour. The report states that around 3:30 p.m., 11 v ehicles were illegally parked adjacent and parallel to the tracks at Front and Centre streets, beginning at the intersections stop sign and extending to Ash Street. A city ordinance requires vehicles to be parked a t least 50 feet from the nearest rail unless there is an emergency. P olice contacted First Coast Railroad to find out about the train schedule because of the dang er of a train striking vehicles. Two trains already heading down the track had to be stopped, according to the report. On arrival at the scene, First Coast Railroads operations manager Mike Roach told police that a ny vehicle within four feet of the end of the railroad ties would need to be removed. Three of the 11 vehicles met this criterion, and a towing company was contacted. Two vehicles were hooked up for towing, but each time the owner arrived and paid the towing f ee on the scene. When word got out that vehicles w ere being towed, the owners of the other illegally p arked cars moved them from the area. G G u u n n f f o o u u n n d d A woman found a gun behind her house on South 10th Street in Fernandina Beach on March 10, according to a city police report. The woman called police after discovering t he gun and moving it to the front yard, the report s tated. Police said the weapon, which was very r usty and appeared to have been outdoors for a long time, was a sawed-off shotgun. A t the police station, a check was run on the serial number to see if the gun was stolen. It was d etermined to be a 12-gauge gun manufactured by New England Arms, and was not reported as stolen or lost. The gun was taken to the property room to be destroyed later, according to the report. F F r r a a u u d d a a t t t t e e m m p p t t A guest at a local motel was the victim of an attempted fraud after giving credit card inform ation over the phone, according to a police report. The guest told police he had received a call on the motel phone around 8:30 p.m. March 15 from a man identifying himself as a motel employee. T he caller knew the guests name and told him he would need his credit card information b ecause the front-desk computers were down. The guest gave the caller his personal and credi t card information, and the caller said if any changes were made to the bill, they would slip it under the door. Shortly, the motel guest received a call on his cell phone from Best Buy, saying he needed t o complete a purchase of a television that had been disconnected. The guest told Best Buy the p urchase was fraudulent. He told police that Best Buy had somehow received the credit card and p ersonal information he had given to the motel. Police spoke with the motels front desk employees, who said they never slip bills under the door, and that all incoming calls go through the front desk. On questioning another front d esk employee, police determined a call had gone through to the victims room, but the incoming phone number could not be recovered. The guest notified his credit card company of the attempted fraud, and told police no other transactions were reported since the call from B est Buy. G G u u n n t t h h r r e e a a t t Nassau County deputies arrested a Callahan resident in the early morning hours of March 15 for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after he put a pellet gun to the chest of a person and threatened to shoot another one, according to a report. D eputies arrived at a residence after reports t hat an argument had escalated to threats. The first v ictim told police that Roy McGee, 34, of 45376 Pickett Drive, Callahan had arrived at his resid ence and started yelling and cursing at him. When the victim reportedly approached M cGee to ask him to leave, McGee brandished a black handgun and put it to the center of the victims chest, according to the report. A second victim told police that McGee also pointed a weapon at him that resembled a 9 mm handgun a nd yelled he would shoot him. Deputies later found McGee in a parking lot b ehind a local bank, according to the report. After getting consent from McGee to search his vehic le, police found a black air pellet handgun that had the hammer pulled back in the firing position, which resembled a 9 mm handgun as described by the victims. McGee admitted he had gone to the residence t o confront the victims, but denied pointing the gun at them, the report stated. He was arrested o n two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. 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 intoxicated woman March 8 after she attacked an officer during questioning, according to the Nassau C ounty Sheriffs Office. A man told police that his girlfriend, Blakly Joy M usic, 31, 766 Kenneth Court, Fernandina Beach, was highly intoxicated after a family cookout, a nd he asked for emergency services to evaluate her. When police arrived she appeared unsteady on her feet, had slurred speech and smelled of alcohol, according to the report. During questioning, Music interrupted by y elling at her boyfriend and the deputy, according to the report. She became combative and also told officers that she was going to stick something into their chests. When she stumbled toward the deputies, one of them attempted to place her under arrest for o pposing an officer, but she grabbed his unif orm, began to kick him, and attempted to bite a nother deputy. A deputy deployed a stun gun to gain control of the woman, and she was arrested for opposing an officer and resisting arrest with violence, a felony.

This is the fourth year for this event. In the current standings, four teams are tied for second place with a 6-1 record Celebration Baptist Church, First Baptist Blue, Journey T eam One and Springhill Baptist Church. Just one undefeated team remains Christwalk, which currently has seven wins with no losses. In action last week, Celebration Baptist Church defeated Living Waters 18-2.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK A Big Brothers Big Sisters fishing outingThe Nassau Sport Fishing Association held a youth fishing outing for Big Brothers Big Sisters Saturday with outstanding success. Marvin Lieninger, with several members of the local fishing club, organized the event, held from the Amelia Island Y acht Basin. "We had a great showing for the very first event," Lieninger said. "Some 30 children were treated to a morning out on the water; they were able to see Amelia Island from the water and fish too. "Fourteen NSFA fish club members simply made it happen by donated their time and fishing boats. "Also we need to thank Sonny's Barbecue and the Amelia Island Yacht Basin for their participation as well. "Without saying, the weather this past Saturday was perfect for not only the fishing but for the picnic lunch held at the yacht basin following their morning on the water. Besides our captains donating their time, several of our fish club members worked hard in grilling hamburgers and serving the children a big lunch." Most of the children fished in the backwater with fish club members, catching a variety of saltwater gamefish, including whiting, sea trout, r edfish and bluefish. Captains Scott Stewart and Carl Rauer fished at the mouth of Bells River and hooked two giant bull redfish for their two guests, Andrea Adair Lasserre and Reggine Alexander. The Nassau Sport Fishing Association is currently holding its annual Black Drum Fishing Tournament and fishermen who weigh in the three largest black drum will win cash awards. Jasmine Tulloh is currently in first place with a 69.56pound black drum. Martin Holton is holding down second-place honors with a 66.44pound black drum and Robert Haddock is in third place with a 65.62-pound black drum. The popular fishing tournament ends April 5. The Nassau Sport Fishing Association will hold its monthly social tonight, beginning at 7 p.m. The popular event will take place at Ten Acres. This month the entree will be Italian sausage, peppers and onions, courtesy of the Pam and Joe Wise family. Also, Larry "The Fishman" Finch will present a beach fishing seminar. Finch has visited us before and is always informative as well as entertaining. A former IFA Pro Redfish T our Open champion, Finch is also a regular contributor to Florida Sportsman Magazine clinics and First Coast Outdoors TV shows. His primary target these days is the elusively pompano. Finch is one of the best surf fishermen in the state of Florida. For information on the Nassau Sport Fishing Association visit www.nsfafish.com. The local tournament fishing team "Game Day," captained by Ryan Rodeffer, is currently sitting in second place in the annual Jacksonville Wahoo Shootout. Their three-fish aggregate weight is just five pounds out of first place with one more day to fish. T eam "Channel Surfer," captained by David Law, is currently holding down firstplace honors with 210.82 pounds. The big news last week was the arrival of black drum at the St. Marys inlet and along the beaches of Amelia Island. Fishermen who targeted excellent eating whiting with light fishing tackle and shrimp were also hooking into black drum weighing to 50 pounds. Night fishing for black drum continues to be popular at both the tip of the St. Marys south jetties and just off Main Beach, where a deep slough tends to hold black drum weighing to 90 pounds. "This week should bring excellent catches of black drum with a new moon arriving on Sunday," Capt. Benny Hendrix said. "Typically the best black drum fishing comes during a full and new moon, when black drum are more apt to spawn, and when there is a good current too." W ith this in mind, the best fishing this week should come while fishing dead on the bottom with half a blue crab, large fresh shrimp or conch for big red drum or black drum.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK P AGE 4B W EDNESDAY M ARCH 26, 2014 N EWS -L EADER / F ERNANDINA B EACH FL Learning to savor those (many) senior moments Many of us enjoying the dessert years of our lives worry about memory issues and fear a dreaded diagnosis. The memory tests that we r ead about and hear about on television come a little too close to home. The Big Guy and I watch each other carefully for warning signs. He manages to stay patient as I search for a pair of glasses or my car keys. Sometimes he needs a little help too. We both laugh as we try and recall a name, place or thing. We love t he smart phone and our instant ability to search for a book title or movie we cant call up. It is difficult to understand the brain process that somehow blocks the very thing you are struggling to remember and then suddenly like a candy bar in a vending machine it drops down and out of our mouth. It just happens and on its own time schedule. Eager to share we b lurt it out. Most people understand and smile knowingly. We have all been there and will probably be back. We try and laugh them off, but do worry that it m ight be a sign of something much more serious. We rationalize that we are not in trouble if we are aware that we cant remember a name or a place or cant find something. The recognition of the occurrence indicates a clear, but temporarily confused mind, right? I read that or heard that somewhere. But where? I have a new car. Gone is my easy to find anywhere yellow Volkswagen. It has been replaced by a generic white SUV. So now I have to work harder at remembering exactly where the car is parked. I did try and get in someone elses car the other day and nervously looked around to see if anyone saw me. The clicker h elps. A blinking car is a comfort when you are not quite sure which of the snowy white cars is yours. Recently I left my phone on a restaurant table while having lunch with friends. When my husband later tried to reach me by phone the waitress who found my phone answered. Not recognizing the voice Big Guy quickly hung up and when he got home reported that a strange woman had answered my phone. I called my n umber and our lunchtime waitress answered, laughing and explaining that she tried to tell the Big Guy where the phone was but he hung up too quickly. It is not just memory that seems to break down its also our vision and hearing. When dining with friends in the same age range we l augh as we all struggle to find our cheaters; eyeglasses to help us read the menus. Depending on the group we can sometimes exchange and compare our vision enhancers. Then there is the hearing thing. I enjoy dining out so much more now that I am wearing hearing aids.

Its staff and nine-member governing board oversee water regulation, permitting, remediation and restoration through a cor e mission designed to pr otect the water supply provide flood protection, ensure water quality and preserve natural water systems. Monson said 90 per cent of our water comes fr om the Floridan Aquifer, a vast underground water repository r eplenished primarily by rainfall. However, of the nearly 51 inches of rain that falls each year, only 13 inches makes it to the aquifer. Recent droughts and increasing water withdrawal from the aquifer have caused serious depletion of water in springs, lakes and wet lands. Monson said if this trend continues, some parts of the district, including areas around Jacksonville, will not have adequate drinking water in 20 years. Monson said the key to averting the problem is thr ough strict water conservation and by identifying alternative water supplies such as reclaimed water.

Sixty guests chipped in and heard Coxs stories of past Atlanta Braves stars Greg Maddux, John Smoltz and Chipper Jones, as well as baseball greats Bobby Bonds, Willie Mays and Mickey Mantle. Cox has been a financial supporter of Boys and Girls Clubs for years and when his fines for being ejected from ballgames mounted, he got permission to make equivalent donations to a charity of his choice: Boys & Girls Clubs. Cox signed Braves shir ts, hats and other memorabilia for the guests and posed for photos. The event raised $6,700 for programs serving the kids at Nassaus two Boys & Girls Clubs.

Island Chamber Singers looking forward For the News-Leader After 10 years of performing the classical choral music of masters like Mozart, Schubert and Beethoven, the Island Chamber Singers will present their first jazz concert, Looking Forward, on Friday and Sunday at the Amelia P lantation Chapel. Our singers have grown in experience and confidence, and they have enjoyed the challenge of launching their second decade with a brandnew style, said Jane Lindberg, founder and director of the Island Chamber S ingers. Lindberg has chosen the music of two popular contemporary jazz composers, Dave Brubeck and George Shearing. The concert will begin with Songs and Sonnets of Shakespeare by George Shearing and will feature seven Shakes pearean sonnets, including Live with Me and Be My Love and Who is Silvia? The singers will be accompanied by piano and bass as they present Shearings harmonically complex style mixings wing, bop and modern classical influences. Shearing was born blind, the ninth child of a poor London family, and died in 2011, having been knighted by Queen Elizabeth. During his l ifetime, Shearing appeared w ith Mel Torme, the M ontgomery Brothers, Marian McPartland, Jim Hall, Hank Jones and numerous other popular musicians. The second half of the concert will feature Brubecks To Hope! A Celebration, a mode rn Mass with some familiar SUBMITTED S inger/songwriter Cathy Miller, pictur e d with her hus b and, John Bunge, will present a program of music and quilts at the Amelia Island Quilt Guild meeting on n ames like the Kyrie, Gloria and Lamb of God, p lus some special Brubeck interpretations like The Desert and the Parched Land and All My Hope. Accompanied by piano, celest a, bass, saxophone and percussion, the 32-member choral group will be joined by featured soloists Mary Williams and Scott Tinman as cantors. This is such amazing m usic, and I know that our c ommunity will be as thrilled with it as we are, Lindberg said, especially considering the perspective of Dave Brubeck who said, I approached the composition as a prayer, concentrating u pon the phrases, trying to p robe beneath the surface, h oping to translate into music the powerful words which h ave grown through the centuries. O n the publication of To Hope! A Celebration in 1979, Brubeck said, Emotions that are life, from sorrow to exaltation, were part of my experie nce in writing To Hope! When the work was completed, I felt a strong sense of wholeness and affirmation. I pray that those who experience the work will share my f eelings. D uring his lifetime, 19202 012, Brubeck was designated a Living Legend by the Library of Congress. This California native began classical piano lessons with his mother when he was four years old. He graduated from C ollege of the Pacific where h e originally intended to study v eterinary medicine. As he worked his way through s chool as a pianist in nightclubs, he changed his major t o music. After college, he served in Pattons Army in Europe. During that time he led a racially integrated band. After the war he studied with F rench composer Darius Milhaud, who encouraged him to incorporate jazz into his compositions. Although To Hope! is not widely performed here, it has b een performed in St. S tephans Cathedral in V ienna, in Moscow with the Russian National Orchestra and throughout the English speaking world. Brubeck himself has performed in shows with artists Duke Ellington, Ella F itzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie and L eonard Bernstein and won n umerous awards. He even performed at the ReaganG orbachev Summit in 1988. The concerts will take p lace at Amelia Plantation Chapel, 36 Bowman Road, Fernandina Beach, on Friday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. An opening night reception w ill be held in the Fellowship Hall immediately following Friday evenings performance.
