ANGELA DAUGHTRY News-Leader Representatives of Billy C asper Golf, which has managed the city-owned Fernandina G olf Club since 2011, met with a handful of concerned golfers last week to present an update on a renovation of the south greens of the course. The south section of the Fernandina Beach Golf Club will be closed until Aug. 1 while the greens are renovated, at a c ost of $60,000-$65,000 to the city this fiscal year. According to Billy Casper Golf superintendent Buddy Tate, this is the first full greens renovation of the course, which was built over 50 years ago. Tate said nearly all 39 trees have been taken down that were t argeted because they were casting too much shade, destroying the greens with root intrusion and using up large amounts of water. Tate noted grass is already showing s igns of improvement in those areas where the trees used to be. e found tree roots 3 inches in diameter that were suck-i ng the water out of the ground, T ate said. Removing the trees w ill require less watering. L ater this month, greens will b e fumigated and the soil will be sterilized to kill organisms that are detrimental to grass growth. Ber muda grass will be planted in some bare areas, and in Juneg rass sprigs will be dropped and a n aggressive bi-weekly fertili zation program will begin. T wo new bunkers are also b eing constr u cted. e expect it to be in impeccable shape, not like anything youve seen, T ate said. This will r eally benefit the south course. T a te also noted grass is already growing better wheret he trees were removed. T he south course will also b e planted with Champion Bermuda grass, which grows densely in shaded ar eas as well as having good wear tolerance and r esistance to cold weather. One golfer at the meeting complained of hardpan on thec ourse, which is soil that is p acked down and imper vious t o watering. Tate explained that the course was in transition this time of year, because the grass type changes due to the season. Its a process we go through, Tate said. Once we have the fairways good and thick, we wont have to worry a bout the hardpan any more. Answering a question about a lack of watering, Tate said two water pumps were taken out recently because of a lightning strike, decreasing the watering capacity to a third of what it was previously. Billy Casper has managed t he 27-hole course since 2011, and was sent a formal notice of c omplaint from City Manager Joe Gerrity a year ago saying the course must show significant improvement by Aug. 1 of l ast year, or face further action b y the city. C ity Commissioner Charles Corbett, who is commissioner liaison to the Greens & Oversight Committee, said he was encouraged by Billy Caspers renovation plan. Theyre moving forward w ith it, Corbett said. The city g ave them the money, and t heyre doing what they can do. Its a lot better than it was last year, Corbett said. The logic was to get (Billy Casper put some ef for t into it ... the grass has not been changed since 1972. B ut in spite of outward i mprovements since last year, t he city golf course is still losing money. According to a March report by General Manager Josh OBrien, the course brought in $122,296 in revenue for the month, which was behind budget by $70,597. OBrien wrote t hat rain and cold weather (continuefect our ability to p roduce rounds and revenue consistently due to less than average weather conditions including temperatures in the low 40s and rain all day on two days this month. According to terms of the c ontract with Billy Casper, the city pays a fee of $84,000 a year t o Billy Casper Golf, but keeps all revenues including those from the concession stand and pro shop. Unlike Westrecs cont ract to manage the city marina, B illy Casper is responsible for e mployee pensions and benefits, but the city still pays for the golf courses operating costs, including employee payroll. The city also pays for an outstanding debt for previous golf course improvements. G errity said nothing has b een budgeted as yet to renov ate the west or north greens in fiscal year 2014-15. The citys Golf Course Advisory Committee wasr ecently dissolved and r eplaced by a new Greens and Oversight Committee. Several of thosem embers attended the greens r enovation meeting. firstname.lastname@example.org CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 3A W EDNESDAY M AY 7, 2014 NEWS News-Leader A melia Island Montessori School Now EnrollingAmelia Island Montessori School is now enrolling children (18 months 8th Grade 20142015 school year.

Who came and what companies did they represent? Officials wont say. When it comes to economi c development, staying competitive means staying quiet. I cant tell you that, said Executive Director Steve Rieck after a luncheon meeting last week to report mid-year activity and results. But trust me, the visits went well. The visits were organized w ith help from Jax USA Partnership, the economic d evelopment company for the city of Jacksonville, said Rieck. How many jobs, collectively, do the companies represent? ,500, said Rieck. Are they tourism jobs? Why? said Rieck. B ecause service jobs at resorts and hotels tend to be lower paying, hovering around $10 an hour without benefits. A $10 an hour job is better than no job, said Rieck. Rieck spoke after a mid-year report from the Nassau County E conomic Development Board. The report was delivered by board chair Dan Camp to an audience of more than 100 people, including local business leaders and government officials. He reported: The board recognized several new investor members, i ncluding Sleiman Enterprises. The Jacksonville-based company has built major shopping centers in Nassau County, including the strip mall a nchored by Publix supermarket in Yulee. The guest speaker was Chris Corr, an experienced real estate recently hired by Rayonier who has been hired t o oversee development of the East Nassau Community Planning Area (ENCPA). Corr, a Tampa native whose family developed its tomato farm, helped Disney develop the town of Celebration, Florida. The ENCPA name is going away for a friendlier moniker.

More taxes, more government. Versus less taxes, less government. U nless you are a government employee, the answert o this simple financial riddle is pretty obvious. M ost of us would choose the latter. Not so in Nassau County. In fact, several county commissioners and their financial s taffers are promoting a taxand-spend approach for thisy ear and they are unabashed about it. Almost p roud of it. They want new buildings and new vehicles and new capital projects. Of course, they contend it is in the best interests of the county, its future and its people. And if t hey dont get their way, you as a resident will be unsafe or under-serviced. W eve watched this movie a nd its sequel before. Its plot i s trite and predictable. In other words, it is an antithes is of a John Grisham novel. (Grisham is a new resident, and new taxpayer.) Do we elect county commissioners to tell us what isg ood and best for us, through some predictable form of n ew government spending? More buildings. More staff. M ore projects to nowhere. Hardly. We simply ask that they and their staf f make pr u dent financial decisions with our (not their Until this year county of fi c ials have been doing a pr etty g ood of this. H owever, there is a sort of uprising/uproar right now about ways to alleviate a $12 million budget deficit. On one side of the issue are Commissioner Steve Kelley and County Comptr oller John C rawfor d, pr eaching austeri t y and eschewing any propert y tax increase. Heading a tax-and-spend brigade on the other side are Commissioner Danny Leeper and County Manager Ted Selby. They feel that raising taxes is the only solution after years of paring back county r esources and spend-i ng. And the t wo sides couldnt be farther apart in their negotia tions or in their convic-t ion. Or on how to d eploy $40 million of county reserves, now sitting in savings accounts in various banks. Lets face it: the easiest solution for a budget deficit is to increase the prope rty tax rate. The hard part is to hold the line on taxes and to live within your means. T his requires frugality and d ifficult decisions about s taffing, equipment, projects, etc. W ithin the various jurisdictions in Nassau County, a bastion of conservatism, elected officials who have promoted higher taxes havee xperienced short tenures in office. Presumably Leeper a nd fellow Commissioners Barry Holloway and Jr. B oatright feel they can buck this trend in touting a tax increase (Commissioner Pat Edwar ds seems to be siding with Kelley). They are being persuaded to do so by Selby (a for mer f inance dir ector who I sup p orted to become county m anager), and his staff. Unfortunately for these commissioners, they are elected to make these decisions and answer to voters while Selby and his financial staffr emain insulated. S elby needs to r ead up on o r take notice of similar prot ax tactics employed by predecessor Michael Mahaney or peer Michael Czymbor. They pursued like paths with like outcomes. Neither holds his position any longer. Selby is telling any com missioners who listen that the $40 million in reserves are already spent or earm arked, and more tax revenues are needed to spendo n other things (notice the different tenses of spend). Both sides are employing road shows and/or campaigns to get out their message. They have distinct diff erences on how to balance the budget and run the coun-t y for the next year. In a letter in last weeks N ews-Leader Selby pulled the public-safety card from the deck of lame excuses. Unless taxes are increased, residents will allegedly be unsafe and their lives unfulfilled. Selby even contends t hat police and fire and emergency vehicles are in need of repair or replacement (if you s ee a defunct county vehicle o f any type, please take a p hoto of it and send it to my attention). C mon now. Nassau County has been a safe, lowcrime place to live for many years, before Selby came here, before Danny Leeperb ecame commissioner and his brother Bill Leeper b ecame sheriff, before Holloway and Boatright g ot elected as commissioners. We dont need to increase taxes to buy things or build things so that people can feel safer. And this is not about jeopar dizing the futur e of N assau County if taxes a rent increased, as one of S elbys staff people has contended in e-mails. This is about the citizens of Nassau County and what is best for them. Will it be more taxes and government spending, or less. Y ou can d ecide with your vote.

Even if you dont like John Kerry you have to empathize with his efforts to find a solution for peace in the Middle E ast. However, when the mediator is the party who wants the settlement the most, the negotiations are in big trouble. In successful negotiations, both parties must 1) desire and 2) be willing to compromise to reach a settlement. T he outside parties, before they put in too much time, s hould discern if these elements are present. There is even a chance for success if one party desires the sale and the other party, while reluctant, at least is open to a deal. In the Middle East, both the I sraelis and the Palestinians have objectives, but we seem t o be the only party that wants to negotiate an agreement. The negotiations in my past that most resembled the Israeli versus Palestinian conflict involved the Clinton Corn Processing company, a divis ion of Standard Brands. I have mentioned Clinton in o ther columns because it represented some key learning f or me. Recently I reread an a rticle in an Iowa newspaper, The Daily Reporter, which described t he Clinton strike as one of the longest and most bitter strikes in Iowa history. The union r epresenting the Clinton e mployees was the Grain Millers Local #6 and their business agent, Mike Krajnovich. Representing the company was the president of Clinton Corn Processing, Len L ewis. Len and his crew hated the Grain Millers and the feeli ng was mutual. Over the 10year period there were at least five strikes and a number of work stoppages. The company went to court and won a $25,000 award over one of the stoppages. At the end of a cont ract, with the award still owing, the company locked o ut the Grain Millers who then went on strike. A year l ater, there was violence, bad p ublicity, millions in losses and no settlement. Our CEO, Ross Johnson, actually liked Len Lewis but Ross and the board hated the b ad publicity and the major losses, so I was ordered to secretly find a replacement for Len. The AFL-CIO leadership, sensing a bad outcome for the union, also wanted a settlement so they requested that the parties meet with a mediator in Washington D.C. I went t o Clinton to meet the president of the Grain Millers I nternational privately to get a feel for him and set up the agenda for this meeting. My learning event was a taxicab driver advising me one night, when dropping me off at a bar where I was meeting the u nion leader that, if I gave him $20, he would pick me up w hen the meeting was over. In response to why I couldnt just call the taxi company, as you would in most cities, he explained he was the only cab company in Clinton, Iowa and if I didnt give him the $20 he w ouldnt answer the phone. At the meeting in W ashington, D.C., the president of the Grain Millers, his v ice president and a top AFL o fficial came for the unions. The business agent wasnt invited as the Grain Miller officials agreed he was a problem. Len, our labor attorney a nd I came for the company. The mediator tried, but as in the Middle East conflict, it soon became evident that he,I and the AFL-CIO rep were the only ones who wanted to negotiate a settlement. Sometime around 2 a.m. the next morning, the mediator in f rustration suggested the company take the $25,000 o wed by the union and pay the business agent to go away. When the Grain Miller officials stated they couldnt legally do that, the mediator, hopefully in jest, suggested the $25,000 be given to a hit man. N ot knowing who was listening in, I announced the meeti ng was over. A few months later, the union was defeated in a decertification election, 567 to 48, and the business agent closed the union office and suggested his striking employees re-apply to the c ompany. On the other side, Len Lewis had already been r eplaced and a few years later the Clinton Corn Processing c ompany was sold to ADM. T he moral of the story is that outside parties dont bring about settlements unless the parties want a deal. Sometimes you can convince t he parties that a deal is in their best interest, but that usually means they are thinking logically rather than emotionally. At some point, maybe there will be leaders in Israel and Palestine who want an agreement bad enough to compromise on the real i ssues but until that happens, the John Kerrys of the world a re unfortunately just spinning their wheels. At some point, one of the countries may also look like a winner, but many times in these disputes, there are two losers.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 7A W EDNESDAY M AY 7, 2014 OPINION News-Leader VOICE OF THE PEOPLE S S h h r r i i m m p p p p a a r r a a d d e e O n Thursday, I attended the S hrimp Festival Parade and truly enjoyed the experience. Yet, I must bring this matter to the committees attention, the action which I believe people of color may have found to be offensive or maybe distasteful.I mmediately behind the Sons of C onfederate float or part of their d isplay was a gentleman dressed in black with boots and spurs cracking, not one, but two whips. There is nothing wrong with history and being proud of our heritage but some actions may be pr e sented as distasteful to others. As we k now, part of history was the beati ng of slaves with the use of whips. I believe it was not intended to be o f f ensive but people of color may have interpr e ted the cracking of the whips as degrading and a wicked period of time in our histor y I am voicing my concer n that in futur e events that par ticipants as well as the committee be mindful o f the diversity and the culture of o thers. L our y ne Spaulding Fernandina Beach As the dir ector of Miss Kate s Pr e K, I feel I must comment on the inappr opriateness of two entries in Thursday s Shrimp Fest Parade. The t heme of this family-oriented event w as, as always, related to the shrimpi ng industr y so impor tant to our local community. Unbelievably, two individuals marching in the parade were brandishing weapons: one was aiming a gun into childrens faces and firing smoke at them, and the other was flicking a bullwhip. Really? H ow are these actions related to s hrimping? How was this allowed t o happen? Incredibly dangerous, incr edibly disturbing. Our childr en, parents and my staff and I have enjoyed walking in this big community event, but until such time as we can be reassured that such entries will not be allowed, and that children in the parade as well as lining the streets as spectators are safe, our participation in future parades is doubtful. Kate Hart, Director Miss Kate s Pr e K Fer nandina Beach C C a a g g e e d d My wife and I left the Salty Pelican after having dinner a week ago Monday night and when we went to walk back up the main street discover ed an 8-foot fence had been er ected and a police of ficer guar ding the gate to go east up main street. He informed us main street was closed for a private party. We were told we would have to walk around as the block between Front and Second str eet was closed. He dir ect ed us to walk up Ash Street or cut thr ough the Hampton Inn parking lot. Personally it was not a huge hardship to walk around but it struck me as odd that the town would allow a private party of any kind to completely close its main street to residents and tourists. It doesn t take any deep thinking to see that you are cutting off everyone at Br ett s, the Salty Pelican, the river fr ont parking lots and the marina from easily walking up our public main street. Hard to understand why at least one side walk was not left open for public access. At 9 p.m. a band came on stage as I am sur e the whole town is awar e of. They were really quite good. I watched them fr om outside the cage for a while. I r emember in my old neighborhood we used to occasionally have a block party like this on our main street, with music, beer and, of coarse, all your neighbors and friends, but standing there outside the cage it didnt really feel like that. I do think it is great we use downtown for this type of thing, I just hope next time were all invit-e d. Chris Hadden F ernandina Beach C C o o u u n n t t y y f f i i n n a a n n c c e e s s Steve Nicklas April 23 column that r epeats the misguided thoughts of Clerk of Cour t John Crawfor d d oes not do our community good s er vice. A few facts: V ery basically, due to the housing collapse of 2007, county revenue, heavily dependent upon housing value, declined about 25 percent over the following years. This cr eated a serious budget deficit, which was filled by a major r eduction of the countys unres tricted dollar r eser ves (fr om $30 m illion in 2010 to expected $19 million in 2014), significant cost cuts, significant delays in maintenance and improvement projects and other prudent short term actions. Due to Florida law the cur r e nt and futur e housing recovery will have a slow beneficial effect on county income (many pr oper ties ar e c apped for rate of incr ease) and it is optimistically estimated it will take six years before revenue returns to pre-recession levels. So, in short, the county faces a tough financial situation for the next five years, until tax revenue returns and new planned development aids county r evenues. F ur ther reduction of county r eserves is foolhardy and could lead to bond rating problems and missing some state aided programs thatr e quir e small participation on the part of the county (new roads, for example). So, in summar y, the county would be well advised to see what other actions can be taken other than continue to deplete reserves and follow hope rope and soap ideas and I hope residents will tune into this impor tant topic. William G. Gingrich Amelia Island M M o o r r e e o o n n S S t t . M M i i c c h h a a e e l l Regarding the coming expansion of St. Michael Catholic Church here in Fernandina Beach, a recent letter writer star ted her letter The mad ness has got to stop! And from ther e, she went on a mad rant about human rights violations while bashing the desir es and plans of St. Augustine Diocese Bishop Felipe Estevez, St. Michael parish priest Father Jose Kallukulam and the majority of her fellow St. Michael parishioners for having the audaci ty to not yield to the bombast andr hetoric of a few who are holding their breaths and stomping their feet because they cant have their way. I concur. The madness must indeed stop. Comparing the upcoming expansion of St. Michael Chur ch and the intentions of the bishop, our parish priest and the majority of we parishioners to human rights viola tions is not only beyond the pale, its downright, well, madness. As a parishioner of St. Michael, I support the collective wisdom of the bishop, our parish priest and my fellow parishioners in the decision to enlarge the size of our beloved chur ch and to make it possible for all those who have to stand each week to have a more comfortable worship experience. It is sorely needed. It has been sor ely needed for years. But every time its come up in the past, the naysayers made enough noise to get their way and stall things. The naysayers would have you believe this is an issue that s been launched against unsuspect ing parishioners and neighbors around the church like some sort of diabolical sneak attack. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The planned expansion of St. MichaelC hurch has been on the parish wish list since as far back as the pastoral a dministration of Fr. Ed Booth in the 1980s and possibly even further back than that. At long last, ever y one, except a minority of grumpy people and naysayers, are on the same page and it s finally going to happen. The minority naysayers m ight as well quit holding their b r eaths and pouting because it s to n o avail. Its sad that a handful of unhappy campers persist in attacking our priest, bishop and fellow parishioners in the press. Its unseemly and it accomplishes nothing but make a vain and desperate attemptt o place the church, parishioners, o ur priest and our bishop in a bad l ight. Worse, nearly all of what theyre saying is either untrue or wildly exaggerated. Kind of like comparing the plans and wishes of the majority to human rights violations. At least one of these naysayers has had issues with ever y single parish priest dating back to Fr. Booth. When you have a beef witho ne priest, ther e might be some thing to it. When you have a beef with every one sent your way, its time to do some serious soul searching. Lying is a sin. Gossiping and spr eading vile r umors is a sin. Trying to scandalize your church, your fellow parishioners, your priest and your bishop is a sin. T her e is no widespread dissent w ithin St. Michael parish about expanding our church. If there was, there would be a great flood of letter writers fr o m parishioners and neighbors alike. Where are the voices of all the neighbors who are supposedly outraged by the expansion decisions? The silence is deafening. Theres only the constant griping of a few. Get over it, folks. Its done. The Catholic Church is a church of hierarchy. It starts with theV atican in Rome and passes on down to the level of archdiocese, diocese and parish. W er e not like Protestant chur ches where all of our church matters ar e made on the local level. Most of our parish and not just the moneyed few, as the naysayers would have one believe are of one accord with our Bishop Estevez and Fr Kallukulam, who have hear d our voices and, in their collective wisdom, decided to act on it. There will eventually be a Catholic Chur ch in the St. Francis of Assisi parish of Yulee. And thats great. But most of us who live in St. Michael Parish wont attend Mass or other church functions ther e. And the majority of St. Michael parishioners live her e. Why would anyone her e want to get up on Sunday morning and deal with the ever worsening traffic problems and congestion on SR 200 when we can attend church right her e on the island? Now that s tr uly madness. And the claims of the naysayers that the expansion will worsen the traf fic around St. Michael Church is nothing short of disingenuous. The same number of people who attend Mass each Sunday and stand along the walls nearly to the front of the chur ch will still attend but will have someplace to sit. It isnt going to bring in mor e people but only accommodate those who ar e already there. I would encourage anyone who believes the decision to expand our church is tantamount to human rights violations to visit a country wher e ther e r eally ar e human rights violations. This really is an internal matter in our parish and diocese. Rumor mongering and spiteful r hetoric are just words. Words are wind and its an ill wind that blows no good. Joe Palmer Fernandina Beach I have read, with sadness, ( Business Manager Tom) Hables comments about the new church in Y u lee (April 16 questions that I hope he will answer. How has he become the spokesman not only for St. Michael but also forY ulee? I believe Y ulee should have i ts own spokesman or have they dele gated that r esponsibility to him? I am sure that (Architect Jose) Miranda is only doing what he was told to do and Im sur e that he is a qualified architect for many projects. My question is, has he everr ead a book by qualified Catholic ar chitects on designing a Catholic c hurch? I mean no disrespect by d esigning the chapel at the P lantation and the Methodist church in Yulee hardly qualifies as experience for designing a Catholic Church. Also, why has he been selected for his job? Were there other bidders or does he have an in with the powers that be at St. Michael? It certainly seems that way. Since we ar e looking at 2015 befor e i t is a r eality why is ther e such a rush to hire an architect? An additional priest will be assigned to St. Michael on July 1 until the new church has been completed. Has Mr Hable consider ed, out of courtesy, that he may want to have some input into the design? Mr Hable seems to have things b ackwar d. The outward appearance o f a church is secondary. You dont get the feeling of a spiritual environment from the outside of a building. What matters is the inside of the building. From his explanation of the inside, it will be a hall for dancing and social activities and by the way, it will also be available for the Liturgy. There will be no pews just folding chairs to make it easier for the above social activities. It seems that in order to quiet us, he is graciously thr owing a bone to the people of Yulee, which was my major concer n when I first wr ote to the bishop last year. From his comments, it seems that St. Michael will be offering no assistance to the Yulee church, although the people of Yulee have been donating to St. Michael for over six years. He does, however admit that gr owth off the island far outpaces the gr owth on the island, but apparently the word island seems to be a magic wor d for some people. When I look at the money that is being spent on the interior of the expansion of St. Michael, $1,806,000 according to the updated version of Nov 19, 2013, I can see that it will be a grandiose interior compar ed to the chur ch in Yulee. More like a basilica than a small historic Church. I guess egos come with money and the more money you have, the greater the ego and the bigger the plaque. We definitely do not want to be par t of mor e hear tache for the chur ch we all love, but ther e are pr oblems at St. Michael and people need to know the truth. Why was the chur ch given per mission to expand despite its historic value and in spite of the parking plan they know will never work? How many other projects in quiet neighborhoods have been given so many vari ances? These questions have never been answered to our satisfaction. I admit, I have no input into any of this except a 65-year histor y at St. Michael and a lifelong love of the old St. Michael not what it is becoming a chur ch for the ver y wealthy along with a superior attitude by some of its parishioners. Iris W ard Fernandina Beach Signs not again! A fter recently cleaning up the clutter and distraction of road signage on SR 200 at the f inancial detriment of local small business o wners, the county commission is now disc ussing changing the laws governing flipping electronic signage in Nassau County. It seems a local business owner is attempting to influence the county commission to allow constant message changes during the day of flipping electr onic signs. Cur r ently, the county sign ordinance prohibits the electronic signs message to flip ( change) mor e than one t ime ever y 24 hours and the message cannot flash, pulse, jump or move in any way. The four arguments to change the cur r ent or d inance simply don t hold water with me. 1. Its new technology: flipping electr onic signs have been around for years nothing is new with the technology. 2. The flipping electr onic signs pr ovide a community service in times of disaster: this is a stretch in todays world in case of a major disaster the community will likely bee vacuated and mor e and mor e people today depend on getting infor m ation from their smart phones and tablet devices. 3. Time and temperature for motorists: now this is old technology most people today have the time and temperatur e at their finger tips 24 hours a day on their smar t phones and in the vehicles they drive. 4. The business owner did not know the countys sign ordinance: Sorry, I have absolutely no pity for any business owner who makes a substantial capital expenditure and does not do their due diligence prior to making the investment or, worse yet, doest r ead the document they ar e signing or r ead the fine print. As my Dad always reminded me growing up ignorance of the law is no excuse. The Nassau County Commission, Planning & Zoning Board and County Attorney need to take into consideration what the change in the cur r ent sign or di nance will really mean. If changed it will open the floodgates for cur r ent outdoor bill boar d companies to transform their existing static (one messaged locations into gigantic flipping electronic signs. If you dont think that will happen, take the nice drive up I-95 to exit 3 in Camden County and cruise Highway 40 into St. Mar ys, Ga. take a look at the massive flip ping electronic billboards on the road, each has a number of dif fer ent messages that change ever y few seconds. Most importantly, frequently changing messages on signs can lead to a drivers distraction, which can be deadly 3,328 persons were killed in distracted driving accidents in 2012. Recently federal and state gover nments have passed laws banning tex ting while driving and in many cases banning the usage of cell phones in vehicles. Commissioner Danny Leeper a retired fire and rescue professional, and Sheriff Bill Leeper, a retired Florida Highway Patrolman, sur ely know the dangers of driver dis tractions on our roadways. Changing the existing sign ordinance is clearly a hazard to public safety My final comment deals with the lack of consistent enfor cement of laws and or dinance it drives me crazy. In this case, flipping electronic signs are given a pass on the ordinance and change their messages fr equently in other par ts of Nassau County but not on Eighth Street in Fernandina Beach enforce the laws and ordinances consistently thr oughout the county Im dumbfounded as why the county commissioners would even consider loosen ing the restrictions on flipping electronic signs just after theyve eliminated illegal onroad signage on SR 200 the existing sign or dinance does not need to be changed, it s working the way it is. Foy Maloy, Jr. is publisher of the NewsLeader In Harper Lees book To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus Finch says, You never really know a person until you walk around in their shoes. W ell, how would you like to walk around in City Manager Joe Gerritys shoes for awhile? N ot me. In fact, I cant remember a time when a city managers shoes might be so uncomforta ble. Theres the usual stuff: putting together a fiscally responsible budget, massaging it through the commission, then implementing it. Listening to whimsical, fanciful ideas from individuals and groups bent on promoting their agenda (CRA and waterfront plan folksc ome to mind), or worse, from City Hall hobbyists bent on promoting themselves. T hen theres the balancing act he has to perform when considering proposals from growth/tourist-oriented interest groups in one corner and complaints from growth management people, like myself, in the other. Some dont like my descriptions of the two as boomtowners and hometowners, but I think the terms fit. That balancing act was on full display M onday night last when parts of Centre Street were blocked (fencedf for a celebration honoring Texas Roadhouse. Let me say this, I have nothing against Texas Roadhouse. By all accounts their work in our community has been outstanding $75,000 spent on the Peck Center alone, and their involvement and contributions should be recognized and honored. But, is a private party t hat denies public access to public places the right way to do it? I dont think so. I t all started around 6 p.m. when a fence w as erected to block westbound traffic on C entre Street both foot and vehicular; public sidewalks included. It is my understanding that a similar fence extended from the M arina Restaurant south to block eastbound traffic, crea ting the enclosed area necessary for a private party, one s ponsored by The RitzCarlton and the Omni, honoring Texas Roadhouse. Now, I dont know how the visual of the fence affected other people, but, wow, it hit me hard; nothing says not respassing like a fence; nothing says keep out like a f ence; nothing says stay away like a fence. But can a private party say no trespassing to the public when they want to use the publics sidewalks? Can a private party say keep out to the public when they want to access their waterfront? I dont think so. The balancing act is tough, I know. Heres this organization that has donated so much to t his community being honored by two of the countys largest employers. And in the other corner are a handful of citizens complaining about the loss, albeit temporary, of public access. Why not be Solomon-like and try to appease both. Want a model how about Sounds on Centre. Sounds on Centre blocks off Centre Street at that same spot, but the s idewalks are open and the public is welcome. I know, its that public is welcome thing thatg ets in the way of the private party thing. H ow about this then honor not only Texas R oadhouse, but other groups, firms, businesses and corporations that do good things in our community with a barbecue or some such thing in the Atlantic Avenue or MLK R ecreation Center parking areas. This could be a semi-private gathering, leaving the publ ics access to their pool, auditorium and various meeting rooms open. I dont know about the acceptability of these alternatives to anyone who wants to have a private party on public lands, but I do know these things: 1) Businesses that do good things for this community should be recognized, praised and honored. 2) There are many appropriate places on this island for privatep arties. 3) There should never be another fence erected across Centre Street or any city s tree, or any public access, that prevents the public from using that access. It should be noted that the one of the reasons given for erecting the fence was not to keep the public out, necessarily, but to keep drinkers in. That same logic is now being used by the Shrimp Festival beer is available, but stay within the fenced-in area and various festivals at Main Beach. Keeping the drinkers in is a strategy born out of the misguided ordinance that allows the sale and consumption of alcohol at public parks, other public places and on city streets, providing one gets the proper permit and has a police officer present. It was enacted by a commission that listened to an interest group and they handed it over to the city manager for enforcement. I believe the city managers shoes are as uncomfortable as theyve ever been. Listen tom e; listen to us; do the right thing as long as i ts what we want you to do.

The city is looking for opinions on the future of Eighth Street. The citys Comprehensive Plan directs review of the commercial corridors within the city Eighth Street/Downtown, 14th Street, Sadler Road and the Main Beach/Seaside Park areas. In addition, the Economic Development Element of the Comprehensive Plan directs evaluating these parts of town as Job Opportunity Areas, and laying the groundwork to introd uce new business and employment opportunities to the city. Because much of these areas are built out, policies will primarily focus on redevelopment. The city last tackled the issue of Eighth Street redevelopment a decade ago, considering a zoning overlay to enable changes, but ultimately little came of it. Planning staff is currently conducting research on potent ial policies and land use mechanisms to foster and support these directives. These updates will go in the citys Land Development Code (LDCf has convened a technical working group for assistance in factfinding and data collection. The work done by the group in gathe ring this information will help staff in drafting policies going forward. The group first met in March 2014. Members of the group include an architect, engineer, the county Economic Development Board director, a citizen-at-large, Planning Advisory Board members, a county growth management representative and a retired economic development profess ional. All meetings are noticed and open to the public in accordance with Sunshine laws, and all input is welcome. Information on the group and their efforts is available at www.fbfl.us/LDCED. The group has chosen to work on Eighth Street first. E ighth Street, or A1A, is a state road, and portions fall within the city and county. As part of the fact-finding, the group is planning to reach out to Eighth Street business and property owners, as well as downtown merchants. City staff and group memb ers are also interested in what the entire community has to say about Eighth Street. It is hoped that city and county residents, as well as business owners, tourists and anyone interested in the future of Eighth Streetw ill respond. In order to get feedback, the city has a survey available at www.surveymonkey.com/s/8thStreetInput. Based on information and data collected in 2014, staff hopes to draft the updates tot he LDC in 2015 and prepare them for Planning Advisory B oard and city commission review. Depending on how the w orking group and staff decide to tackle the updates, the changes may come in sections or as a bundle. Due to the nature of these updates, whichp romise to be a significant u pdate to the LDC, its possible t his effort will continue beyond 2015.

A new high-level fixed span bridge will replace the e xisting drawbridge. Construction of the new bridge will take place along the northeast side of the existing bridge. The new b ridge will provide two 12foot travel lanes, two 10-foote mergency lanes and two barrier-separated sidewalks. The h eight of the bridge will allow 65 feet of vertical clearance for boats to travel beneath at average high tide. Since fishing will not be a llowed from the new highlevel bridge, four westerns pans of the old bridge will be left in place at the end of cons truction for anglers to use. During construction, traffic will use the existing bridge but will shift slightly southwest onto temporary pavement at the bridge approaches. Lane closures are not allowed from 6:30-8:30 a.m. and from 4-6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Drivers are a sked to use caution through the construction area, which h as been reduced to a 45 mph speed limit. T he new bridge is being constructed on a foundation of piles (concrete columns). Pile driving is allowed from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday throughF riday and from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday. Pile driving w ill not be allowed on S undays and holidays. A ccess will be maintained to businesses and parks in the area during construction, but the entrance to Jim King Park will be relocated, as willa driveway to BAE Systems.

Gibbs as well as Nassau County Sheriff d eputies killed in the line of duty, was approved by the Florida Legislature last week. The bill designates portions of SR 200/A1A as memorial highways in their honor. State Sen. Aaron Bean and S tate Rep. Janet Adkins provided amendments to the origi nal bill filing to honor both Gibbs and the Nassau County deputies. Gibbs, a Fernandina Beach resident and graduate of Fernandina Beach High School, died of cancer at the age of 40 in 2013. He had served as legislative counsel f or U.S. Congressman Ander Crenshaw, chief of staff for Congressman Connie Mack IV and as chief of staff for the Florida Department of Transportation. His mother, Frances Wentz Taber, was touched by this immense honor. . Francis w ould be deeply touched and overwhelmed by this! shew rote in an email. T he portion of A1A b etween Atlantic Avenue and Simmons Road in Nassau County is set to be designated Francis Gibbs Memorial Highway in his honor. She noted this r o ughly seven-mile stretch of the very beginning of A1A runs right before our familys homestead on the oceanfront for the 12 y ears of Francis period of a ttending Fernandinas public schools, before he went to University of Florida, Gainesville, to earn his undergraduate and law degr e es. I am honored to have known Francis, Adkins said. He worked diligently in the l egislature to make this world and our state a better place. F rancis was a tireless advocate for matters concerning the protection of individual rights and liberties. It was an honor to know Francis Gibbs and it is amazing how much he accomplisheda nd what an impact he made for Florida. How fitting it is to d edicate the portion of A1A where he grew up, Bean said. A section of A1A between I95 and Stratton Road is to be dedicated to the memory of deputies who have lost their lives in the call of duty. Day in and day out our law enforcement officers risk their lives f or ours and some give the ultimate sacrifice. This is a small way to honor their lives and show our appreciation, said Bean. Sheriff Bill Leeper said, The designation of portions of State Road A1A/200 in memory to the Nassau County S heriff deputies killed in the line of duty is a long overduer ecognition for the law enforcem ent professionals who proudl y serve the citizens of this community.

I t was a beautiful Saturday morning, warm and sunny, p erfect conditions for a butterfly release. At 10 a.m. Bucko and I joined a gathering of nature lovers at Reflections of Nature nursery on Amelia Island to witness this spectacle. I saw many of my friends in the audience, people from m y days leading hikes for the Newcomers Club, fellow pool dancers from water aerobics, volunteers from Fort Clinch State Park and lots of people with small children in tow. We all came to see the butterflies. Butterflies are commerc ially available from butterfly breeders that raise eggs to caterpillars to chrysalis to adults to eggs and round and round it goes. Since each caterpillar of a particular species only eats certain plants and the adults only sip nectar from various other flowers, a butterfly farm is a wonderland of blooming flowers and native plants and a fun place to visit. If you want to visit a butt erfly farm, the Greathouse B utterfly Farm just outside G ainesville in the town of Earlton provides tours of their facility and also ships butterflies to clients for release at weddings, or special events such as this one. The butterflies at R eflections of Nature arrived b y FedEx the day before the r elease in an insulated cardboar d box cooled with icepacks to keep the butterflies in a state resembling hibernation. Each butterfly was individually packaged in an envelope with its wingsf olded. When the cold source i s removed the butterflies s tar t to become active again. T o r e lease them, it s sim ple. Her es how Angie and James Loper of Reflections of N ature do this. First, J ames talks to the audience about plants that host caterpillars and those that provide nectar for a dults. And then Angie brings out the box and hands out individually packaged butterflies to all the children and curious adults. When each envelope is o pened, out comes the butterfly, looking for some place to perch in the sun to warm up for its flight into the wild world. But some dont fly far. The monarch and painted lady butterflies that were released by the audience stuck close by. While some of them immediately found one of the many native plants in the nursery to settle on, others settled wherever. A few lande d on peoples heads. One w oman with red hair had two m onarchs maybe they liked the color? The butterfly release was over quickly but many people stayed behind to choose new butterfly host and nectar plants for their own garden. R eflections of Nature is well s tocked with many choices f or both sun and shade something for butter f lies can survive in anyones garden. Now that they have moved from their former location on Highway 17 closer to us, on Amelia Island next to AceH ardware, they have really s pread their wings. What l ooks like a small establish ment fr o m the str e et side actually covers a lar ge lot behind with hundreds of m ostly native flowers, shrubs and trees to choose from. W hen we left Reflections of Nature, flowers and butterflies were still on my mind. On the way back to our home I couldnt help but admire the roadside wildflower display in full force. Lyre leaf sage, spiderwort and many other species of wildflowers I dont k now the name of were all vying for space on any unmowed area along Bailey Road and Amelia Parkway and in all the drainage ditches. And, you guessed it, these plants especially the sage also attract butterflies! Now, many people here w ill call these wildflowers weeds and, yes, maybe if they are taking over your carefully manicured lawns thats what they are. But part of the beauty of our remaining unused land is the habitat this provides for wildflowers of all types and, yes, the butterflies that gravitate to them. You dont need to spend a lot of money to lure butterflies to your garden if you nurt ure some native weeds w ithin your garden. My own b utterfly garden is a combination of native plants like milkweed and lyre leaf sage, and purchased plants like firebush and lantana that add more color and texture with a sprinkling of annual zinnia s eeds thrown into the mix. A nd, even though my own y ard is mostly planted out, I know I will be back to Reflections of Nature soon to get just a few more plants to make it even better. Its spring and planting plants to attract butter flies is yet anoth e r way to enjoy it! P at Foster-Turley is a zoolog ist on Amelia Island.

Our local office has just processed a scam that really affects our seniors who depend on Social Security checks. T oday, large numbers of us live month by month and depend on our Social Security checks to help carry through each payday. This scam could be one of the worst kind that which scams one of their Social Security checks and possible livelihood. A recent example, our office is working on a case which involves a senior who has missed two months payments because the scammers used this method. They called the Office of Social Security telling them that this person moved to another state and now has a new bank to send her checks to giving a false address and bank. They used a foreign bank that will cash checks without questions. When they received the checks at the false address, then send it to the foreign bank overseas, then cash and send back the money or deposit in the scammers b ank. How they get your account number your check records, Social Security information or whatever is not really known. Could be a simple thing they do or go through your garbage etc. Seniors should be aware of t his kind of scam and be very careful.

D D o o g g f f i i n n d d s s c c o o c c a a i i n n e e A Nassau County drug-sniffing dog helped in the arrest of a Georgia man who was charged with possession of c ocaine and drug paraphernalia April 27 in Hilliard, according to a report by the Nassau County Sheriffs Office. A deputy began tracking a white Cadillac SUV on CR 108 traveling east in the early m orning hours April 27 b ecause of items hanging from its rearview mirror and blocking the driver s view, the report stated. The Cadillac reportedly stopped in the middle of West Third Avenue and then turned i n to a residential driveway as the driver turned the cars lights off. As the deputy cont inued his way around the corner, he observed the cars lightsg o on again and the vehicle eventually turning onto US 1 n orthbound. After stopping the Cadillac at US 1 and Hallman Road, the officer requested the suspects drivers license and advised him t he reason for the stop was the items blocking view from ther earview mirror, plus the suspicious driving late at night in a r esidential area. The driver, Marcus Dantonio Mitchell, 32, of Louisville, Ga., questioned the officer several times about the p urpose of the stop, and then turned sideways in a blocking m otion to restrict the officers view while getting his wallet o ut of the console. On being asked to step out of the vehicle for questioning, Mitchell reportedly rolled the drivers side window up and o pened the door just enough for him to squeeze out and q uickly shut and locked the door. W hen asked if there were any illegal items in the truck, Mitchell stated No, and became very nervous acting w hen told a narcotics dog would be coming to sniff the vehicle. A narcotics canine handler arrived on the scene with Saber, a trained drug-sniffing dog with the NCSO. Saber showed posi tive response to drugs in the v ehicle when she snif fed the p assenger-side door, according to the report. On a sear c h of the vehicle, officers found plastic bags in the center console and in a cardboard box on the back floor. Police eventually identif ied a white, powdery substance t esting positive for cocaine; s ome off-white rocks that tested positive for crack cocaine; marijuana weighing 7.2 grams; a grinder that had marijuana residue; and a metal scale that had traces of cocaine. A total of $1,600 in cash was f ound in Mitchells pockets and i n the center console, and a bottle of Jack Daniels was also found on the r e ar floor of the Cadillac. Mitchell was charged with possession of cocaine; posses sion of drug equipment to manu facture or transport drugs; p ossession of less than 20 g rams of marijuana; and possession of cocaine with intent to sell, manufacture or deliver. D D r r u u n n k k a a n n d d d d i i s s o o r r d d e e r r l l y y According to a Nassau C ounty police report, a man was arrested for being drunk and disorderly after a Hilliard resident reported him knocking on doors in the middle of t he night. The resident contacted p olice after the suspect reportedly came to his residence i ntoxicated and was banging on his door after midnight. When asked what he wanted, the suspect said he needed a lighter, at which time he was asked to l eave. The resident reported to police the suspect was also seen k nocking on other neighbors doors. O n a search for the man, police found him about 100 feet north of the residential area, lying behind the Welcome to Florida sign at the G eorgia/Florida border state line, drinking a beer, according t o the report. The man appeared to be intoxicated and h ad difficulty standing, the report stated. When asked why he had b een knocking at the door of t he Hilliard homes, the man stated, because I needed a lighter According to the report, the suspect lives in Homerville, Ga., and had no reason for being in the area at the time of h is arrest. He was charged w ith disor derly intoxication and h aving an open container, and transported to Nassau County Jail.

ALL-COUNTY PHOTOS BY BETH JONES/NEWS-LEADERFernandina Beach High School junior Karri Nantz scored nearly 20 points a game for the Lady Pirates this season. She is the all -Nassau County girls basketball team's most valuable player for 2013-14.Nantz tops all-county basketball team Grace Lindberg Lauren Hoggarth Miriah Durrance Julie Fournier2013-14 ALL-NASSAU COUNTY GIRLS BASKETBALL TEAM Jennie Powers BETH JONESNe w s-LeaderCall her a sparkplug, maybe a catalyst, but she has been instrumental in some big changes in girls basketball at Fernandina Beach High School. Junior Karri Nantz, 16, hit the 1,000 career point mark this season and has more than 1,200. She averaged 19.6 points this season, just one of several statistical categories where she left her stamp. Nantz led the district which included Raines, state powerhouse Ribault and county teams Yulee and We st Nassau in scoring (19.6 points), three-pointers and charges taken (15, which was also best in the state for the second season in a row). She also was in the top five in r ebounding (7.1), assists (3.1), steals (3.8) and blocks (3). Nantz returns to the all-Nassau County girls basketball team but this season as the most valuable player. The junior helped steer the FBHS Lady Pirates to 13 wins this season; the team won just 10 games in the last four season. Although Nantz was sidelined with an injury two days before the district tournament (bruised spine), the Lady Pirates knocked Yulee out of the district tournament before eventually succumbing to the Ribault Lady Tr ojans. "I was upset and asked to leave the hospital for two hours to go watch,"she said. "We beat Yulee in the district tournament so I was really proud of my girls." "This past season was successful for her, but she had a couple injuries that I think slowed her down some and kept her from achieving more," said Jacob Nantz, her father and firstyear FBHS head girls basketball coach. "The most disappointing for her was the injury that happened during the week of districts, which kept her out of the district tournament. "That was tough for her because she and her entire team had been working all season for that moment, and one of the top scorers in the state and the district's leading scorer was out and not able to play." But she will be back, stronger than ever, for her senior season. The Nantz family moved to Fernandina Beach from Kentucky before Karri Nantz's sophomore year. "It wasn't really planned at first but my parents always wanted to live in Florida," she said. "I just started high school and things were going good. But Florida is awesome and I'm so glad we made the move. It's really been amazing living here. "I tried to look at the other schools but, as soon as I came here, it felt like home. Everyone is friendly. They called the coaches immediately and I met everybody. Everyone was so welcoming. It was perfect." Last summer, her father took over the high school program and also started the Basketball Club of Florida, which fields teams to compete in AAU action in the offseason. He recruited some of his daughter's foes during the high school season. Y ulee's Grace Lindberg and West Nassau's Jennie Powers also play. Both join Nantz on the all-county team as well as FBHSjunior Julie Fournier. "When we started AAU, we were cordial but we didn't know how to act," Karri Nantz said. "But it's been great. It's friendly competition. You want them to excel. It's helped us out a lot. It's good to have a relationship with people on the court." That is evident watching the Lady Pirates on the basketball court. "Winning together makes you stronger,"Karri Nantz said. "This year, we've been closer than ever. "If someone is still running, you r un with them. When you're on the floor, it shows. Team sleepovers. A team off the court is a team on the floor and it shows." She hasn't always concentrated just on basketball. "I tried other things when I was little but nothing ever stuck,"Karri Nantz said. "Cheerleading, volleyball. If I was going to strive in one I had to chose one or the other. I've been playing basketball for nine years. It just came natural and I love it." She also has a great deal of r espect for her father and coach. "Some people think you get extra treatment but I promise you, you don't,"Karri Nantz said. "If I'm the one laughing in practice, I'm the very first one to start running. He's probably harder on me than any of the other girls because he expects more from me. I need to be a leader so I can't back off. "After the games, I'm the one that hears all about it. I'm the one he vents to and screams." But she wouldn't have it any other way. "I've played for a lot of AAU coaches, not that I favor my father more, there's a good understanding with him. There's a fairness. He has sat me on the bench for over half a game because I rolled my eyes. It builds character. I might go to college and there might be a coach I don't agree with and I have to deal with it. That's been good for me." Nantz has 28 colleges interested and she plans to choose one in the fall.
CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 14 th annual blue water shootout set"While watching our trolling baits, the rest of our crew tournament team was subduing a 30-pound barracuda on the deck of our fishing boat," Mike Holland said. "It was exactly 2:30 p.m. and we had 30 minutes left to fish in the annual Amelia Island Blue W ater Fishing Shootout. Suddenly a blue marlin charged the short, Outrigger bait and took off on a high leaping r un." It was the 2002 annual blue water fishing tournament organized by Capt. Allen Mills. "Earlier that morning we did real well for a variety of blue water species, including dolphin, kingfish, barracuda and blackfin tuna," Holland said. "However, we were really hoping to hook up to a billfish because teams received more points for landing and r eleasing billfish." The Stream Stalker's efforts came true at exactly 2:30 p.m. as Holland stood at the transom of the fishing boat and played a hard fighting, 150-pound blue marlin. "The first thing we did was call the committee boat and announce that we were hooked up with a billfish," Holland said. "We wanted to make sure that we would be giving points for our catch, since the tournament fishing hours ended at 3 p.m." Although Holland's blue marlin never made a second jump, the battle was fought for some 30 minutes. "I was finally able to bring the blue marlin alongside the gunnel of our fishing boat," Holland said. "Here, we took a quick photo of our catch and released the billfish unharmed." T eam Stream Stocker went on to win the popular blue water event. Unfortunately, Holland's brother, John, passed away in 2007 and the next event was held in memory of the avid blue water angler. The 2014 event will get under way with a captain's meeting, which will be held at the Fernandina Harbor Boater's Lounge at 7 p.m. Friday. Entry fee is $220. The 14th annual Blue W ater Shootout will be held from the Fernandina Harbor Marina Saturday. Tournament boats may leave at 3 a.m. with lines in the water no earlier than 6 a.m. Blue water teams also must be back at the Fernandina Harbor by 7:30 p.m. A variety of blue water gamefish will be weighed in at the Fernandina Harbor Marina, including wahoo, tuna and dolphin. Be sure to come to the historic waterfront marina and enjoy the weigh-in. All billfish will be photographed and r eleased. Points will be given to all of the above species of pelagic gamefish with the team accumulating the most points will be crowned the 14th annual Blue Water Shootout champions. For information, contact Capt. Allen Mills 261-9481. The Continental Shelf is located some 65 nautical miles offshore of the St. Marys inlet, where water depths drop off dramatically from 180-1,000 feet of water in less than a mile. During the spring fishing seasons warming water temperatures and the arrival of large sargassum weeds attract a variety of gamefish, including dolphin, wahoo, sailfish, blue marlin and more. A popular trolling pattern includes high speed trolling from 10-12 knots with lures back and forth from a west to east and east to west crisscross pattern until a good concentration of weeds, baitfish and blue water gamefish are located. Once gamefish are located, blue water fishing boats will often begin trolling with combination lures and ballyhoo and with a slower trolling speed of 6-8 knots. Attractions to blue water gamefish include water temperature breaks, water color changes, floating debris and flying fish. David Hagins recently landed a 70-pound cobia, which may well signal the beginning of a long awaited cobia run. High winds with heavy rain have kept saltwater fishermen fishing in close to shore and in the backwater. Excellent catches of good eating whiting have been coming from along the beaches and Cumberland Sound. Redfish are schooling in the backwater during low tide and the annual run of bluefish and Spanish mackerel is now taking place.
