SEDA Construction Co. most notably the builder of the Flora Parkes ubdivision filed a lawsuit in 2010 a gainst the county and the school b oard to get the money back. Acting c ircuit Judge Wesley Poole said no, in a decision announced April 15. e are gratified that the court saw it our way, said County Attorney David Hallman. In a phone interview, Hallman said t he decision was significant because it p reserves the countys right to impose s chool impact fees. Had the builder p revailed, he said, that could have opened the door for other residential developers to ask for the r e tur n of their impact fees. Fortunately, that didnt happen, said Hallman. Poole conducted a bench trial in February, hearing testimony overt hree days from various officials, i ncluding the county manager, the chairman of the planning and zoning boar d school boar d members and the business analyst who studied and calCi ty pecks, scratches, but la y s n o eggs ANGELA DAUGHTRY N e w s-Leader A resolution to allow city homeowners to keep up to six backyar d chickens was postponed for further study by city commissioners last week. Commissioners discussed the new subsection of the citys code of ordinances that addresses the allowance of chickens in the city during a commis sion meeting April 15, but several commissioners said they needed mor e infor mation befor e approving it. Commissioner Pat Gass questioned a part of the amended ordinance requiring that chickens be kept enclosed in structures two feet from the ground, saying the regulation was inhumane. Mayor Ed Boner said chickens only lay eggs for a few years, and ques tioned whether owners would want to keep them past their egg-bearing years. He also warned chickens are not always a pleasant thing to have next door. Resident Chris Hill said he had owned chickens for two years, and suggested the number of chickens in r esidential pr operties be determined by the size of the lot. He also noted chickens need to be on the gr ound some of the time and cautioned against allowing chickens to be kept at duplexes. I agree with Commissioner Gass that chickens need to scratch, Hill said, and suggested some of the terms needed to be defined better Do we have building code requirements for chicken coops? asked Gass, referring to part of the new code language for enclosures. Were making it kind of difficult to have a few chickens. She also questioned the need for city staf f to inspect enclosur es and the purpose of the annual fee.

culated the educational impact fees. The judge also heard testim ony from school administrators, including Nassau County S chools Superintendent John Ruis. e are very pleased, said Ruis, who was also reached by phone on April 15 to talk about the decision. We felt like we had a strong case and were p leased that we will have this money to use in the future for t he education of our students. Ruis said the impact fees help, but they do not generate enough revenue for the school districts capital improvement projects. No, they dont, and the legi slature has taken away PECO money for the third year in a r ow and given it to charter schools, said Ruis. We struggle. The state funds capital projects with money from the publ ic education capital outlay fund (PECO e rated from the states gross receipts tax on cable, electric a nd landline telephone bills. The School Board receives almost 55 cents from every dollar collected in property taxes (county government receives a bout 23 cents of every property tax dollar). But NassauC ounty officials wanted new growth to pay for itself and l aunched an education impact fee in 2005, imposing a fee of $3,726 per housing unit. It was r educed to $3,268 at the start of 2014. W hile the fees add to the cost of new residential development, the money is used to help pay for capital improvement projects such as the cons truction of new schools or making purchases, including land, f urniture and equipment. Government officials call it a pay to play fee. In Nassau County, leaders are debating now whether to re-launch a transportation fee, including who pays and who doesnt. T ransportation impact fees, which would help pay for newr oads, traffic signals and sidewalks, were suspended in 2009 d uring the economic slowdown in an effort to encourage building. T he school impact fees have totaled more than $14 million a nd have been continuously imposed on new residential d evelopments since they first started. Developers dont like them because they add to the price ofa house, condominium or multiu nit apartment building, and similar lawsuits have been filed a cross the country over the years to get rid of them. I n court documents, SEDA Construction maintained that the educational impact fees did not comply with Florida law and asked the court for a refund of $ 2.2 million. The company also maint ained that the county or school board did not file mandated r eports or build new schools from 2005-8 with the money collected from the impact fees. The company told the judge it believed the district to be adeq uately funded for its enrollment. A company spokesperson said it would have no comment. T he company has 30 days to file an appeal of Pooles ruling. In the meantime, the school boards lawyer is celebrating the win. ere very, very pleased, said Len Hackett, an attorney w ith Vernis and Bowling law firm in Jacksonville, the schoolb oards attorneys. The allegations had no merit. I n a phone interview on Tuesday, Hackett estimated that the firms legal bill for the school district would come to $40,000. H ackett said the school board would seek to recoup legal fees from SEDA Construction and administration costs. es, we want the money s aid Hackett. Just ordering the trial transcript cost $3,000. A t the county board meeting April 16, Hallman told the c ommission that the countys legal bill could tap into the countys $150,000 emergency legal fund. Hallman says the county has received $77,000 in l egal bills to date. firstname.lastname@example.org CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 3A W EDNESDAY A PRIL 23, 2014 NEWS News-Leader F F o o w w l l l l a a n n g g u u a a g g e e N ew language addressing the ownership of chickens in the city of Fernandina Beach, t o be added to Code of Ordinances Sec. 18-2 if approved by city commissioners: It shall be lawful for any person to keep chickens within the corporate limits of the City, subject to the following. 1) No more than six (6) hens shall be allowed per single-family dwelling or duplex.

Commissioner Charles Corbett noted residences on the island that are outside city limits could have chickens anyway, regardless of city ordinances. How are you going to stop (backyard) chickens in the county if theyre across the s treet? Corbett asked. There needs to be some finessing with this ordinance, Vice Mayor Sarah Pelican said. Because of so many questions about the new subsection, commissioners unanimously voted to postpone approval. C ity Manager Joe Gerrity said staff would work on changes to the new subsection and bring it back for commiss ion approval at a later date. The city of Jacksonville amended its ordinance last year to allow residents to own chickens. The Jacksonville ordinance requires residents to take a class on backyard chickens before applying for a permit, and allows up to five c hickens on properties less than 1.5 acres. CHICKENS Continued from 1A IMPACT Continued from 1A
Ever wonder why, especially during second terms, most p residents teams are fraught with problems. In the sports a nd business worlds, the best teams take time to be successf ul and are created to reach a specific objective. In sports that objective is winning the most games and/or a championship. For example, our J aguars objective this year is probably to win half their g ames. On the other hand, the Miami Heats objective is to w in the title. Therefore, how many regular season games they win is less important for them than having their key older players healthy for the p layoffs. In business the main object ive may be (1eating a particular image or (2 t he profits leader or, even, (3 preparing the company to be sold. The board will select the leader of the team based on which is the primary object ive. On the other hand, while most presidents would like to be remembered as fiscally responsible, their primary and secondary objectives are being elected and appealing to t heir electorate, not controll ing debt. R ecently, I visited Rick Goings, CEO of T upperware. Rick became p resident in 1992 and a f ew years later became CEO. Tupperware was survivi ng but was seen as yest erdays company, h aving its best years in the s and s. In 1997, the companys foreign divisions, which were carrying the comp any, ran into major problems and the company tanked. Rick w ent back to square one and began creating a new T upperware. However, finding available talent in the direct selling business is tough. My contribution on a few occasions was a dvising Rick on why an individual being considered for a top leadership position was not a good fit. One such individual, I advised, lacked objectivity; another lacked intellect ual curiosity and the third w hom he was considering hiri ng back as president had the talent but most enjoyed hitting on the more attractive s ubordinates. However, in 2005, Simon Hemus, who had b een with Rick at Avon, joined Tupperware. While very diff erent leadership types, Rick (Mr. Outside) and Simon (Mr. Inside) became a perfect team and began to add other strong players to complement them a nd meet the companys new direction. E ven then things took time. By early 2009 the stock w as still in the high teens. But then it all came together. In May of 2009 the stock jumped eight points, and it kept rising until, on Jan. 2, 2014, it hit a h igh of $94. My point is that putting t ogether successful teams doesnt happen overnight. J ohn Wooden, the most successful coach in NCAA history, didnt win his first championship at UCLA until he was there 16 years. Successful l eaders find it is more important to have people who are talented at a particular position and who complement one another than to have a bunch of stars. Patience, therefore, is i mportant, but many boards a nd owners wont wait five or 1 0 years for success. Jay Gruden just became the Washington Redskins seventh coach in the last 14 years. My sense is our Jacksonville Jaguars are on the right path but it will be i nteresting to see if the owner h as the patience to let things d evelop. I t is also important that the leader set the right objectives. Ellen Mar r am, when she took over Tropicana, decided freshness was the key to differ entiating T r opicana fr o m its competition. Ther efor e, s he decided that the thr e e key p ositions she had to upgrade w ere marketing, distribution and the president. Marketing had to convince the public that freshness was the key to excellent orange juice. The distribution system had to make sur e that the product met the pr omise and the pr es i dent, like Simon Hemus at T upperware, had to make it a ll work together Her plan worked and a few years later Tropicana was sold to Pepsi for an unbelievable premium. I nterestingly, successful presidential candidates always h ave experienced pros running their election efforts. H owever, once they get elected they put some people into their cabinet based on name recognition and loyalty rather than on experience and a t rack record. The Affordable Care Act is the most import ant piece of legislation of President Obamas presidenc y. Yet the person he chose to head the area, Kathleen Sebelius, while a former insurance commissioner and governor of Kansas, had no experie nce in health care or implementing such a complex s ystem. Republicans are just as g uilty. Tom Ridge, who was the first Secretary of Homeland Security after being governor of Pennsylvania, had a most relat ive experience as a decorated soldier during the Vietnam war. But can you imagine Florida replacing Coach Billy Donovan with Gov. Rick Scott or Microsoft picking W ashington Sen. Patty M urray to launch their latest t echnology offering. The team that achieves success usually has an experienced idea-driven leader, strong position players who complement each other, a good product, the right o bjective and plenty of p atience. Not having any of t hese elements probably leads t o failure. In fact, based on how our system works, it is amazing how much success some presidential teams achieve.

Technically, or at least techn ically speaking, Nassau County does not face anythingn early as ominous as a widely publicized $12 million budget d eficit. According to the county comptrollers office, this draconian deficit figure is more of a statistical mirage than reali ty. Go figure. Meanwhile, county comm issioners (aside from Steve Kelley) and their budget staff a re desperately calling for more revenues which squarely equates to more taxes. They feel theyve cut expenses as far as they can. And the only remaining option to satisfy this void is to raise p roperty taxes. County Comptroller John Crawford sees it differently. E mbracing technology t hrough a nifty interactive s preadsheet, Crawford demonstrates that the deficit can be s olved quite easily by moving figures from one column to another. To be more exact, Crawford wants to divert $7.5 mil-l ion in one-cent sales tax revenues to the current budget a nd away from capital projects (things such as roads, buildi ngs, etc.). This will help balance the budget without a tax increase. County commissioners ar e looking at expenditures first, not revenues, Crawford says. s a math pr oblem. C rawfor d pr efers to first i dentify anticipated tax rec eipts, and then back into them with spending needs. This way you spend only what you have, not what you think you need. However, commissioners have so far rebuffed Crawfor s of fer to utilize this tech n ical, or technological, advan t age. They dont want any part o f it, instead preferring to pore over a dizzying array of figures and columns, printed on mounds of paper work. In the process, They lull themselves into thinking theyve got a $ 12 million deficit,C rawford says. I f there is a budget adjustment under this old method, t he finance staff goesb ack to the drawing b oard, and produces more documents. Crawford prefers his method. With a few clicks of a mouse, figures are realigned until one side (expenses a nces with the other side (revenues). The countys financial pict ure is not all that bleak. More t han $40 million in cash is b eing held in various bank accounts. Some of this money i s earmarked for future projects, although it has not yet been spent. And, for the first time in years, tax revenues will report-e dly come in higher than the previous year (although the t otal increase is only about $1 million). To save money and b uy time, projects such a new $10 million sheriffs headquarters could also be delayed until the financial pictur e becomes clearer. While the $10 million is available and budgeted for thes herif f s building, commis s ioners are instead eying ways t o borrow the funds at low interest rates. Crawford scoffs at this notion. His discipline as the top financial of ficial has been to stay out of debt. Crawford recalls his decision to use cash to pay of f m or e than $10 million in debt s urrounding the county landf ill. This move, in 2007, saved the county and its taxpayers millions in future finance costs. The fr ugal comptroller prefers this pay as you go route. The biggest problem with financing the debt is thati t has to be paid back at some p oint. Thats often an expens ive and uncertain process. The sky is not falling (within the county), Crawford says. ou have all this cash, and things are getting better Steve Nicklas is a financial advisor with a major U.S. fir m who lives on Amelia Island.

Veterans Services Office JOHN SCHERER For the News-Leader Nassau County has had a long, colorful and dedicated military background of service to our historic area. Over the course of the last 100 years alone, the men and women from our local area have answered the call to duty, as needed, b y our country and the events of the times in our world. T oday, there are approximately more than 9,500 veterans that call Nassau County home from all eras (U.S. Census 2010, Nassau County These local veterans have served in many areas of conflict, including World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Bosnia and the Mideast, and the campaigns including Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi F reedom and Afghanistan as well as others. The job of assisting our local veterans, from n eeding answers to questions, assisting in applying for benefits and services, health and welfare, securing military documents and so much more, falls squarely on the shoulders of Nassau County Veterans Service Officer John Martin. Martin is a retired career Navy senior chief, with 21 years in the U.S. Navy submarine forces. H e holds a bachelors degree in logistics and management and an MBA from the University of N orth Florida and is certified by the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs as a veterans service officer in Nassau County since 2005. Hei s a member of VFW Post 4351, American Legion P ost 54, the Amvets Post in Callahan and the N assau County Veterans Council. M artin not only helps hundreds of veterans in the area, but has the advantage of knowing what i ts like to be a veteran as well. He has many of the qualities necessary to empathize with them and give them the truthful and honest attention they need and deserve. Veterans attitudes, outlooks and needs have c hanged greatly since World War II, Martin s aid. The greatest generation veterans from t hat era served lengthy tours, came home and were glad to go on with their lives. Many felt t hat there was no need for assistance and wished the VA to give attention to those who really were disadvantaged and needed it most. In the Korean conflict, many of that same generation felt the same way H e continued, The Vietnam conflict changed a gr eat deal of that previous sentiment. Due to the p olitical unrest, protests and a public sense of nonrespect, many Vietnam veterans felt forgotten and r e ceived no welcome home. That unpopular atmospher e was shar ed by many people and agencies at that time, and r eflected on benefits and services to these era veterans. Since the early s and up to today, much has dramatically changed with the VA in attitude, funding, resources and benefits for a more informed and encouraged veteran, not only for t he WW II and Korean veterans, but many new benefits and services have been declared for the Vietnam era and current vets who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Many veterans of the Vietnam era, especially, are finally receiving hard and long fought for benefits from the VA for recognized effects and diseases related to Agent Orange (Dioxin sure and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD m ental and physical related issues, among many others. The current list of related benefits for Vietnam veterans has been updated to include the following benefits for medically proven cases: Acute and Subacute Peripheral Neuropathy, AL Amyloidosis, Chloracne, Chronic B-Cell Leukemia, Diabetes Mellitus (Type2), Hodgkins Disease, Multiple Myeloma, Ischemic Heart Disease, Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, Parkinsons Disease, Porphyria Cutanea Tarda, Prostrate Cancer, Respiratory Cancers and Soft Tissue Sarcoma (other than Osteosarcoma, Chondrosarcoma, Kaposis Sarcoma orM esothelioma). T he newly established Vietnam Veterans of A merica Chapter 1088, Nassau County, is working hand in hand with Martin at the Nassau C ounty Veterans Service Office to affect assistance and referral for questions and answers on related services for Vietnam vets in Nassau County, in addition to all veterans from all eras. M artin and Gerald Burford, a medical doctor and the VVA Chapter 1088 president, know and a gree that there are so many veterans from all conflicts, including Vietnam, that arent aware that ther e ar e hundr e ds of veterans in Nassau County that just don t know wher e they can tur n to get answers to questions regarding benefits and services.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 7A W EDNESDAY A PRIL 23, 2014 OPINION News-Leader VOICE OF THE PEOPLE B B i i c c y y c c l l i i n n g g C C u u m m b b e e r r l l a a n n d d Recent letters supporting the present ferry monopoly from St. Marys, Ga., to Cumberland Island (Ga.e need a str ong response. The self-appointed Cumberland conservationistsh ave a theme song and it goes to the t une of, The Sky is Falling ... The S ky is Falling. The first issue is the proposal to expand the visitor limit to more than the present 300 per day. I have searched and cant find a statistic on the pr esent utilization other than Wild Cumberlands statement that t he island has 50,000 visitors per y ear I wonder wher e that infor ma t ion comes fr o m it looks like a oundup to the next 10,000 number to me. Even if it is remotely accurate, that averages out to 136 per day. In my personal experience of visiting Cumberland several times per year in all seasons, Ive rarely seen more than a couple of dozenp eople at any one time and no m or e than one or two beyond a mile from the docks. Certainly the islands 9,000 acres can absorb a few more visitors without adverse effect. The second concer n is that bicyclists will overwhelm the island on their trek up and down the East Coast and somehow destr oy the p ristine wilder ness. Long-haul cyclists generally dont ride fat-tire beach cr u ises and narrow-width tires generally sink into soft sand, so my guess is that East Coast Gr eenway riders wont go beyond the dock. The fer r y monopoly also has a monopoly on Cumberlands bicycle concession. In spite of being the worst possible bicycles Ive ever seen covered with rust and in most cases nearly inoperable their fleet of 15-20 bikes is frequently sold out (at least those that still remotely function). I think the so-called conser vationists (i.e., monopolists would be hard-pressed to demonstrate damage to the wilderness by those r ental cyclists so why would cyclists with their own bikes suddenly cause problems? It is a 30to 45-minute boat ride from St Marys to Fernandina. For Greenway cyclists it now takes about thr ee hours and a 29-mile detour along the most dangerous roads in N assau County (other than I-95, w hich is closed to cyclists). Peach State Hospitality is in effect, forcing cyclists to risk life and limb in order to protect the St. Marys monopoly. Cumberland is a national treasure, paid for an supported by all taxpayers not just the elitists who want to r estrict and protect its comm erce in St. Marys, Ga. Its time t hat the National Park Service reco gnizes this. Dan Groth Fernandina Beach W W i i n n d d p p o o w w e e r r Certainly we need to generate additional ener gy sources, both here in the U.S. and worldwide, and need to do it in a way which will minimize harm to the environment. Solar energy will someday contribute a significant share; so will the cur-r ents of our oceans. And wind power may be a major contributor as well. The latter seems to be a favorite of environmentalists. On a r ecent trip to Palm Springs, Calif., we were driving through the mountains, where you are surr ounded by majesty. So grand, so e ther eal, so wondr ous ar e the views that you cannot help but think about it as Gods precious handiwork. And then, around the next bend are hundreds if not thousands of windmills in the valleys, generating power to be sur e, but also destr oy ing the majesty of God s creation. It i s a horrible blight on an otherwise m ajestic setting. I couldnt help but w onder how anyone, in the name of environmentalism, could allow such natural beauty to be destroyed. Frankly, it was so bad that I found myself cringing as I cr e sted and entered the next valley, hoping there were no more windmills to ruin the wonder and tranquility on our oth erwise glorious journey. We were told that the windmills break down frequently and are expensive to fix; many were sitting idle, having lost their blades. Wind ener gy pr oduction is not yet cost efficient, and investors are suffering sizable losses. This will all improve with time, but Im afraid that the destr uction of the natural beauty will continue. I wish there were a more effective and less invas ive ways to use wind power to our a dvantage. Ed Weihenmayer Amelia Island A A r r m m s s o o f f A A n n g g e e l l s s Recently my mother was admit ted to Baptist Medical Center Nass au. From the moment we walked t hrough the doors at the ER and d uring the next four days in ICU, my family and I were enveloped in the arms of Angels. The entire staff and all the employees pr o vided comfor t and car e beyond all expectations, for our entire family. Not only the professionalism, but the concer n, compassion and care my mother received was extraordinary. Thank you. We cant begin to express our appreciation for the kindness and care extended to our mother and our family How reassuring, knowing that we live in a community blessed by Baptist Medical Center Nassau and its outstanding employees. Nancy Price for the Harrell/Price family EDITORIAL Honor the volunteers The Nassau County Volunteer Center will celebrate volunteerism in Nassau County with its 28th annual Volunteer Awards Luncheon honoring outstanding countywide volunteers on Thursday S ince 1985, the Nassau County V olunteer C enter has been the countys clearinghouse f or volunteer recruitment to nonprofit agencies. The center recruits more 3,000 volunteers annually to serve nonprofit agencies. In 2013: The 13th annual GOKIDS (Giving Our Kids Important Daily Supplies) campaign collected over $10,000 in school supplies forn eedy Nassau County public school stu d ents, bringing total collections over the y ears to $142,000. The 15th annual Peanut Butter & Jelly Drive in partnership with The Nassau County Girl Scouts collected over 600 pounds of PB&J given to local nonprofits for distribution to their needy clients. The 24th annual Adopt A Family pr o g ram was a success as mor e than 1,750 vol u nteers from every sector of the community p rovided food and gifts to needy families and individuals, including 1,069 children and 160 adults, including senior citizens. The center served as administrative agency for FEMA funds, distributing thousands of dollars to nonprofit agencies for shelter utilities, food, mor tgages and r ent to needy individuals. I t maintained an expanded website high l ighting county nonpr ofit agencies and a community calendar for nonpr o fit organizations events and other activities. It also provided free notary service to nonprofits, partners with the Fernandina Beach Committee of the Callahan Lions Club to collect used eyeglasses, sunglasses and hearing aids for repair and recycling to those in need. The center handles approximately 1000 consultation calls annually and ser ves as a referral agency to Nassau County services and Nassau County nonpr ofit or ganizations. All of this is made possible by the volun teers whose selfless giving to the less fortunate in our community makes this the special place that it is. The annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon honors a chosen few, but recognizes all those who volunteer their time to benefit others. W e wish to join in expr essing our gratitude for the wonder ful work they do. BOB ENGLEHAR T/THE HARTFORD COURANT P ick up any newspaper these days and theres bound to be a story, or several stories, a bout the clash, no not the late s and early s band, but the ever more frequent conf rontations between quality of life advocates and numbers numbers of people, increasing exponentially, it seems, by the minute. Confrontations have consequences and winners and losers. Too often, especially of late, w hen it comes to confrontations between things like green, open space, public access a nd community values the losers are the people, and the winners, well, in the short run the w inners are the ones who make the money, in the long run there are no winners. Two recent issues highlight this clash, this confrontation: 1. Whether or not to allow a plastic waters lide to occupy a portion of Main Beach Park. On the surface this doesnt seem to be a big d eal kids having fun, some revenue coming to the city, but beneath the surface the quest ion is major: should the city allow even more of the green, open space at Main Beach Park to be commercialized? When the Main Beach revitalization plan was approved by the city commission in the early 1980s, preserving and protecting the parks green space was a priority. Since thatt ime the commissions original intent to protect and preserve has been undermined a skate p ark here, expanded parking there and a cookoff or festival seemingly every other weekend with pop-up concession stands carpeting the a rea, making the publics green, open space inv isible. Now comes a water slide and then . ? On this issue thank goodness for Mayor Ed Boner, Vice Mayor Sarah Pelican and C ommissioner Pat Gass; all seemed skeptical regarding t he value of the project. It was particularly heartening to r ead the comments of Mayor Boner as he stressed the importance of maintaining the green space and protecting nearby residents. Vice M ayor Pelicans and Commissioner Gass reservat ions werent as pointed and precise, but I hope they are s imilar. It doesnt take much imagination to envision a future in which the green, open, public space at Main Beach Park has been turned into a silly caricature of an amusement park, complete with food vendors, beach rentals, an open a rcade and pink flamingo yard ornaments. 2. City staffs willingness to tinker with t he tree protection ordinance. I know, ordinances are never etched in stone, they need to be reviewed every now and then they are living documents. But is it necessary to review the citys tree protection ordinance to make it more compatible, or in line with the countys? Please. O ff the island the county has no tree protection ordinance, and theirs for the islands uninc orporated area is, well, underwhelming remember the wailing and gnashing of teeth by those protesting the clearcutting of oaks at the f ormer fruit stand/farmers market site? M y experience as an elected official is this: staff never, never wants to tweak a developermaligned ordinance in order to strengthen it, i ts always, always to weaken it. The rhetoric sounds good, its believable, i ts sincere, but in the end, the ordinance, rule or regulation thats offensive to developers g oes away, or is severely weakened. Main Beach Park is a special place and one of the primary reasons is the green, open space the commission preserved and protected 30 years ago. I hope, I really hope, that as cust odians of that space were able to resist the sirens song of increased activity, profits and c ommercialism. The aesthetic value of turning left off of Atlantic onto Tarpon Avenue, driving f or a few yards and looking to the right and seeing nothing but green, open space, then the dark green of the ocean, then the pale blue of an evenings sky cannot be quantified. The monetary value? Priceless. A s for the tree protection ordinance, well, I have faith in our communitys small army of q uality-of-lifers to keep developers and city staffers at bay. Local history has shown us t hat trees can be cut down unnecessarily, even clear-cut, but the price is huge in terms of negative public relations. Maybe we need to get city staffers in sync with the citizenry. In todays climate these clashes, the confrontations are inevitable. We live in a time of changing demographics, a changing locale conomy and growing population numbers, all competing for limited public space on an island w ith a fixed mass. At some point somethings got to give community values, quality of life, parks with g reen, open space, I dont know. I n between confrontations, maybe Ill just go listen to Rock the Casbah.

D EBATE AND TACKLE Ron Sapp All that Ive r ead r ecently concer ning the cutting or saving of trees reminds me of the old boar dr oom adage, Everybody knows how to build a bicycle shop. T o begin with, there is only one master gardener. The rest of us are merely OJTs. Anyone who doubts this should walk into a pristine forested area and observe how all plants are properly dispersed in the overstory and understor y The peace and serenity that was present on Amelia Island and the easter n part of Nassau County 55-60 years ago is long gone and will not return. As more and more people move here, they will require more buildings and amenities. The environment will continue to take a hit. The big blob (city annexation the move again. It is going to cover 25 acres in one big gulp. This will mean the total destr uc tion of many tr ees. At what level does pr ogress begin to regress? Sooner or later, the septic tank mode kicks in. T o put something in, you have to take something out. Recently, an 80-year-old who has spent his entire life on Amelia Island told me he had moved out into the county When do you start treating visitors like kinfolk; weve enjoyed your visit, please come again, but shut the door as you leave. I don t blame the snowbir ds for wanting to build a new nest in the south after the harsh winter in the nor th this year Al Gore, where is your global war ming? I don t believe individual homeowners should be subjected to any harsh no tree cutting laws. I dont want any imitation Paul Bunyan who wouldnt know a family tree from a Dollar Tree telling me whether a tree represents a hazar d to my home. W e ar e all guilty of planting trees where we shouldnt. We think about the shade but never wher e the roots will go. In 1981, I planted a bald cypress tree which is now a beautiful tree, but the lateral roots go out 35-40 feet in all directions. It has roots in a lot of my flowerbeds. To most homeowners, trees are a valuable asset to their pr oper ty for the shade and the aesthetic benefits. Most developers and some businesses consider a tr ee as an object in the way of progress and needs to be removed. As par t of the mitigation pr ocess, they will usually replant some small trees, and then pave up to within a few feet of the tree bole. As all of the tr ees I see planted in these strip malls ar e later al rooted, the life will slowly be squeezed out of these tr ees over the years. It s similar to a per son having to live on an oxygen tank. T r ee pr oblems ar ound golf courses can be brought about by too much care. Most plants, including tr ees, ar e just like us humans. They go no fur ther than they have to for food and water Tree roots that are fed and watered constantly tend to stay at or near the soil surface. This is particularly true of most lateral rooted species, which make up the majority of trees on the island. Deep, tap-rooted species are scar ce on the island. Ther e ar e a few hickor y species, primarily pecan trees, and longleaf pine which like the higher ar eas. Its amazing how latitude can change the purpose of a tree. The pecan tree goes from a nut-bearing tree to a can some of us old-timers used to place at the foot of the bed at night, and still do when we get 2-3 inches of rain. Its a shame everyone doesnt have the same r egar d for tr ees as Joyce Kilmer T r ees are like the family tree: shake them enough and you never know what might fall out. The Almighty Dollar r eigns supr eme. T r ees are a distant sight in the rearview mirror. The Hackberrys will continue to get hacked, and the W eeping W illows will continue to weep. Hopefully, we will have a kind and forgiving Mother Natur e for another 50 years. She got our attention exactly 50 years ago. VIEWPOINT /S TANLEY B UNCH /F ERNANDINA B EACH T ree s: friends or foes?

ALAN DONALDSON For the News-Leader A heartwarming event happened at The RitzCarlton, Amelia Island recently. A company called Organ Recovery Systems had a business meeting there and asked meeting organizer Impact 4 Good to set it up. The combination of these two companies was fortuitous. ORS is a worldwideo rganization that provides for transport and p r eser vation of or gans donated for transplant; I mpact 4 Good designs and r u ns team-building meetings that also benefit local communities. A two-hour meeting session was devoted by the ORS group to the unpacking and assembly of eight kids bicycles. The ORS folks were kept in the dark about the exact disposition of the bikes, although it seemed apparent that chil-d ren might be involved. I mpact 4 Good r epr esentatives had made c ontact with Boys & Girls Clubs of Nassau County and invited the clubs to select members to show up at The Ritz-Carlton for a secret award. Four deserving youngsters were picked by the club staff from The Roberts Learning & A chievement Center in Fernandina Beach and four from the Miller Freedom Club on Old Nassauville Road. There were four 10-year-old members: Angel Nealey, Grace Freeman, Jeremiah Randolph and Marrri-Lorraine Reilly;S amuel Thompson, 11; Hermione Winkles, 9; and Giovanni Leyva-Gonzales, 7. L ate in the afternoon, the kids gathered in a c onference room at the hotel, buzzing with excitem ent and wondering what their awar d might be? Then the youngsters were ushered into a Ritz-Carlton ballroom and were greeted with the sight of the eight new bikes, sur r ounded by grinning ORS folks. Each child picked the bike he or she liked most and of f they went, riding around the ballroom, each with an ORS attendee t o guard against accidents. It was hard to tell w hether the gr own-ups or kids wer e mor e d elighted. This is not the first time Boys & Girls Club childr en in the community have benefited fr o m the desir e of business people to r each out. Ther e are few experiences in business that match the satisfaction of giving joy to youngsters and/or helping them achieve success in life.
T heres a new litter of youngsters playing on the Greenway! Ive been hearing reports of them through my emails and social media and finally last week I saw them myself. A family of otters! T he first photos I saw of these cubs were from my f riend Don Lay. At the end of March he found this family with four cubs a nd followed their antics. A t that time, judging from my experience raising captive otters, these cubs were f resh out of the den in some of their firstd ays out and about with their mother. Its a tough job for a single mom to raise four equal-aged offspring, and this job continues for about a year. For the first two months of their lives the cubs are helpless and remain in the den nursing on their mothers milk. But finally at about eight weeks old they are too active and too c urious to contain in the den a nd they are ready to learn a bout solid food. Now the real work begins. Each day the mother otter with no help from the father, who may still be lurking nearby takes her familyon a hunting expedition. For a f ew weeks the mother otter c atches the food herself and b rings it to the cubs so they can learn to recognize and consume it. And for months to come the mother still accompanies her cubs on hunting expeditions, showing them how to finally catch their pr ey themselves. T her s a lot mor e instr uction t oo. They learn to (one hopes) avoid alligators and poisonous snakes, wher e to travel to find different food sources, how to socially interact with their peers, how to mark ter ritories to find others of their kind, or avoid them. At about a year of age the j uveniles are ready to fend for themselves, to spread out and find their own ter r itories. Some females, though, remain with the mom, and s ome males band together as brothers. Although many adult otters spend much time alone, they also meet up occasionally for social events and group hunting sessions. This time of year, when y oung otters are following their mom on their earlyi nvestigations of their world, is a great time for watching them. But be aware. If you do happen to find otters in the Greenway or anywhere else, please be respectful, quiet and dont disturb them. If t hey start periscoping and raising their head abovew ater to look at you, thats not good. Youve disturbed them. And if you hear a distinctive huff or snor sound thats even worse they are alarmed at you. Back away slowly and leave them a lone. The mother otter has enough worries on her mindf eeding four growing active offspring without contending with you! Young otters are curious and playful I know that, youve heard that too, no doubt. But to see it in person, its a joyous Animal Kingdom show. Don Lay was able to capture some of this behavior with his camera, producing photos worthy of National G eographic. A t one point t wo young otters encountered a turtle and climbed up a log to see it closer. Later that same morning they found a beer can (sadly too. When I happened upon the family they were also m oving around the Greenway c anals. I watched the mom w ith four cubs at first, then three, then two. Apparently four was too many to give hunting lessons to at once, and the others were left hidden on the bank waiting their tur n. I watched the mom lead t he cubs down the canal, c atching fish and frogs and bringing them to them. At one point I hear d the mom huff but it wasnt at me. No, she spotted a snake on the bank and huf fed at it, giving her char ges a lesson in detecting and avoiding possibly venomous snakes. Whent he cubs swam back to her after this warning vocalization they all made their af f iliative sound, a hmm, hmm, hmm chuckle, and peace was CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 9A W EDNESDAY A PRIL 23, 2014 NEWS News-Leader SeaBreezeGoing Out of BusinessSALENOW50%OFFEverything in the StoreONLY4 WEEKS LEFT ALLTABLES, SHELVES AND DISPLAYS MUST GO.

A short time after the victim got into the taxi with the two men, he was battered and robbed by Basquet and thrown into a ditch somewhere on A1A, the report stated. The taxi driver told police she picked up the three men at Uncle Charlies Saloon in F ernandina Beach, and that Basquet told her to pull over near Gene Lassere Road, located in Yulee. Basquet then reportedly pulled the victim out of the taxi, began to beat him and threw him into a ditch. The cab driver said Basquet then got back into the cab and told her not to call the police, s tating, You see the work I do. T he driver said she did not call l aw enforcement at the time b ecause she feared for her life, a nd dropped off the two men at an apartment complex. The cab driver told police she immediately called 911 after dropping off the men, and also g ave the owner of the cab comp any a cell phone, a pair of sun g lasses and a set of earphones B asquet left in the cab. Police were able to question Basquet when the cab compan ys owner contacted him about the items left in the cab and Basquet agreed to meet him. During questioning, Basquet told police he opened the door after the taxi stopped at his request, and that the victim then got out and fell to the ground. Basquet also told police he had e arlier observed the victim stopping at an ATM for cash, and positively identified the items left behind as belonging to himself. The victim told police his wallet contained about $200 in cash that was stolen by Basquet. The victim had a possible brok en nose and a contusion behind his right ear, according t o the report. Basquet was arrested and charged with felony robbery and battery, and transported to Nassau County Jail.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK NOBA new owners of the SKAWhen the announcement was made by Jack Holmes that the Southern Kingfish Association was closing its doors back in March, many avid king mackerel fishermen were devastated. To me and my fellow king mackerel fishermen, the SKA was family and we looked forward each year to not only compete in kingfish tournaments but to fish with old friends. Jack and Deona Holmes were the father and mother of our big fishing family and, without a doubt, it was the best saltwater fishing organization that offered both competition and a format to improve fishing skills. We ll, don't sell your kingfish boat and gear. The National Boat Owners Association has stepped up to the plate and has purchased the Southern Kingfish Association. NOBA is a long-time major sponsor of the SKA and will be continuing to sanction kingfish tournaments, such as the upcoming annual Fernandina Beach Kingfish T ournament and Rodeo. NOBA will also continue to offer the Angler magazine, which updates members on tournament results and showcases related fishing articles. Jack Holmes will continue on in an advisory capacity for a period of time to ensure a seamless transition. Also, if you purchased a 2014 SKA membership, the new owners will honor your membership "In '91, John Jones from St. Simons Island, Ga., had the idea to form a saltwater tournament trail and enlisted our help," Jack Holmes said. "We had the ability to grow the sponsorship ranks, promotions and the publishing of Angler magazine. It was a very trying time during the first year but it wasn't long after that Jim Armstrong came on board as our partner. "John Jones lasted through 93, then left to pursue his building contracting business. In 1999, Armstrong and I sold the company to Sid Steverson, an industrial contractor from Georgia and a participant on the trail. In 2001, he sold the company back to me and my wife, Deona." Now that we are all relieved the SKA still lives and is healthy, we can prepare for the upcoming kingfish season. The popular Nassau Sport Fishing Association's 32nd annual Fernandina Beach Fishing Rodeo and Kingfish T ournament will take place Aug. 1-2. For information visit www.nsfafish.com. The Greater Jacksonville Kingfish Tournament is July 21-26. Through popular demand, first prize will be awarded to the largest king mackerel weighed in. For information visit www. kingfishtournament.com. Also the annual Northeast Florida Kingfish Shootout will take place June 13 through July 19. Visit www.kingfishshootout.com. The 14th annual Safe OUTDOORSTerry Lacoss OUTDOORS2BWEDNESDAY, APRIL23, 2014 SPORTS News-Leader PHOTOS BY TERRY LACOSS/SPECIALThe Nassau Sport Fishing Association Fernandina Beach Kingfish Tournament is a sanctioned SKA event, which promotes family and youth fishing. Many of its young competitors, like Spenser Ross, left, have gone on to be professional fishermen. King mackerel are certainly "bad to the bone" with ra zor-sharp teeth and speedy strikes that sometimes take their attack several feet into the air. Jeff Dunbar, right, is pictured with an Amelia Island kingfish. Harbor Spot Tournament is Saturday. For information visit www.Jacksonville.com. On the local fishing scene, cobia are beginning to make their annual migration into Northeast Florida waters, which is great news for those fishermen who cherish their fight and excellent tablefare. Cobia typically average from 2-30 pounds and are found holding under large rays and at offshore wrecks, jetty rocks, shipping channels and where local shrimp boats are fishing. Cobia also tend to hold close to the surface, where sight fishing is key. Boats with a tower or similar high perch have the advantage when spotting cobia lying right on the surface. Casting large chugger-type plugs, bucktail jigs or minnow-type plugs are all successful cobia fishing tactics. However, barbing a live eel and casting it just past the head of a cobia is almost always a sure bet when targeting cobia. Current Florida Wildlife Commission cobia fishing r egulations allow one cobia per angler measuring at least 33 inches from the tip of the head to the fork of the tail. The Nassau Sport Fishing Association will honor all of the 2014 Black Drum T ournament winners tonight at its monthly covered dish meeting at Ten Acres.PHOTOS BY TERRY LACOSS/SPECIALJack Holmes, right, is certainly the all-time "father" of kingfish tournaments and has been the main motivation for the Southern Kingfish Association since its formation in 1991.

The McArthur Family YMCA will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Shrimp Festival 5K Run/Walk, starting at 8 a.m. May 3 at Main Beach, Fernandina Beach. Bright Brighton birthed this event in 1994 and today it is hosted annually by the McArthur Family YMCA with member experience director Karina Grego overseeing the event the past several years. "I am thrilled to organize again this year," she said. "It is wonderful to see families get involved for the unique purpose of making a difference in our community." The Shrimp Festival run is a fundraiser for the Y's annual campaign, which helps families by providing scholarships for beforeand after-school childcare, swimming lessons, sports programs, teen activities and a variety of other programs for those who might not otherwise be able to afford them. "The Shrimp run is a big deal for our community," said YMCA board member Jenny Hambrecht. "Many families make this event a staple in their Shrimp Festival celebrations and enjoy kicking off their Shrimp Boat Saturday at the race." A highlight of the morning is the Katie Caples Memorial Y outh Run, which is a onemile route young runners tackle as their parents cheer, full of pride. This event was created in 1998 largely by David Caples, Katie's father, to honor the daughter he lost in an accident by raising awareness for organ donation. "It brings such joy to see the compassion and competition within our community for good causes," Caples said. "This event also reminds us that every 1.5 hours someone dies for the lack of a life-saving organ, and it doesn't have to be that way. Each of us can make a difference by becoming an organ donor when we sign up or renew our drivers license." In addition to the one-mile r un option, younger children enjoy the half-mile Popcorn Run.

S S u u s s t t a a i i n n a a b b l l e e e e n n g g i i n n e e e e r r i i n n g g The Fernandina Beach Rotary Club recently welcomed Geronimo Etchechury, left, and Luis Mendieta, right, with the University of Florida Chapter of Engineers W ithout Bor ders (EWB Pr esident Shannon Brown. The civil engineering students said the nonprofit EWB, founded in 2002 by Dr. Bernard Amedei, allows students hands-on training through sustainable engineering projects for communities in Thir d W orld countries. Etchechury and Mendieta are involved in an irrigation project for Aripalca, a farming community of 400 in the highlands of Bolivia, that centers on a mile-long concrete water channel to irrigate their crops. Massive flooding destroyed about 500 meters of the channel early in the project, and loss of 90 percent of the communitys irrigation water. The catastrophe led to a redesign that will link the remaining channel with nearly 600 meters of PVC pipe to car r y water to the village s fields. Once completed, the new system will help impr ove cr op yields. While the villagers will pr ovide much of the labor and a little financing, EWB projects are funded through grants and donations, including a significant contribution fr om the Fer nandina Beach Rotary Club in partnership with Rotar y International.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK r P AGE 4B W EDNESDAY A PRIL 23, 2014 N EWS -L EADER / F ERNANDINA B EACH FL You are never too old for puppy love You would think 70 years old would be too old to be a mother, right? Evidently not. We have a twom onth-old Yorkshire terrier puppy reminding us that parenting is not always easy, but a lot of fun. Nearly 20 years ago the Big Guy and I fell in love with a neighborhood dog, a Yorkie named Maximilian. We asked where Max came from and contacted the breeder. We were in the market for small dog that could t ravel with us. We arrived at the kennel and were introduced to the last puppy in a recent litter. The little fellow was hard to resist. Yes, you guessed it. That little puppy grew to be our Oglethorpe, Ogie for short, who recently and after 19 years is in dog heaven. Ogie was joined by MacGregor a year later and the two brought us great joy and priceless memories. They are now t ogether chasing toys and looking for treats. Would we get another dog? We both knew yes, probably. Big Guy found a breeder in south Georgia and a l itter of puppies eady to go. Arriving at a small farm outside Waycross, Ga., we pulled in the driveway of a modest farmhouse. A woman came out the door with a very small bit of black and brown fluff in her arms. It was a puppy from one of the two litters recently born. Clearly a saleslady, she put the small, 2 -pound puppy in my arms. Nothing like a puppy warm, wiggly and cute as a button. We soon met the rest of the tiny puppies all happily playing in a pen in the living room. We asked all the questions adopting parents ask and watched the playful puppies and their endless antics. O f course, as luck would have it, the puppies were ready to go home if we wanted one. They are going fast, she advised. You guessed it. We are delighted with our little Flossie. My habit is to name our dogs after historic characters. Our first two Yorkshire terriers were named Oglethorpe and MacGregor both notable in Amelia Islands h istory. So what to name our new little lady? A favorite Amelia Island personality of m ine, who lived an amazing life in the late 1800s early 1900s, was Miss Florence Flossie Borden. She was outrageous in many ways notorious for being married as a teenager to a much older man, driving a car that was involved in the first automobile accident with the only other car on the island and living in Villa Las Palmas, one of the historic districts most storied homes. D etermined that we would train this dog by the books, we studied the merits of a crate. Flossie adapted quickly and sleeps happily in her own special space. Most of the time she is exploring every inch of the house. We question who is training whom. Pets are a commitment and not for everyone. There are vet bills, mistakes and challenges but for us a furry in-house character is a must. Puppy love, it doesnt get much better. To receive her weekly newsletter or get information about her books including her four From the Porch books contact Dickie at email@example.com FROM T HE PORCH Dickie Anderson C ROSSWORD /S UDOKU P EOPLE & P LACES P ETS C C o o u u n n t t y y u u p p d d a a t t e e Nassau County Attor ney David Hallman, a Rotary International Paul Har ris Fellow recently updated the Rotary Club of Amelia Island Sunrise on the status of projects at the forefront of the county, such as juvenile justice funding, and afterwards fielded questions.

Research suggests that children are more l ikely to be exposed to alcohol and drugs following their fifth grade, which makes t his a gr e at tar get year for the D.A.R.E. pr ogram. The cur riculum equips kids with tools to avoid negative influences and pr e ssur e s, and to focus on their str engths and potential. Each week students are engaged in activities that involve responding to pressures, risky situations, communication styles and resistance strategies. They evaluate consequences and demonstrate, through role-playing, how responsible choices can be beneficial in their lives. The course is taught to all Nassau County elementar y school children and graduates about 900 students annually. McCumber is pictured with Steve Scruggs, Kiwanis Club president.
