MARY MA GUIRE N ews-Leader Blackrock Road in Yulee will not re-open Thursday as scheduled. The constr u ction crew is still building a bridge over Lanceford Creek. The county s pr oject manager said during a tour of the work on Friday that he expects the r oad to open to traffic in midto late June, and that work continues on the $3.7m illion, two-mile rebuilding project until the end of September. e had planned for a 30-day closur e, but were probably looking at another two or maybe three more weeks, said County Engineer Jonathan Page. Page said that a new appr oach to con structing the bridge has slowed things down. But, he said, a mor e traditional ef for t would h ave meant a 75-day building schedule. So even if we need to add a little more time wer e still going to be well under 75 days, said Page. The constr uction pr ocess, he said, involves wrapping stones in sheeting, and then repeating the process over several layers. Its like making burritos with rocks, said Page. Put some stones in, wrap it upa nd do it again. T hat doesn t sound like new technology A nd Page said it isn t The Great Wall of China was basically built by stacking layers of r o ck, said Page. Page said the process would make a smooth transition between the roadway and the bridge. And remember how much this road d ipped here? The bridge is being raised t hr ee and a half feet, said Page. T he new bridge, which is being widened t o 44 feet fr o m 20 feet, is also being built over the existing culver t So we dont have to dump the concrete box somewher e to be a man-made r e ef, said Page. That saves time, money and adds a green component. This appr oach also saved a year by elim i nating the need for a permit from the St. Johns River Water Management District, said Page, and $35,000 on a hydraulic study. Credit the Federal Highway Administration (FHAoach. Since 2010, the FHA has been pushing s tate and local governments to improve effic iency safety and envir onmental pr otection u nder a pr o gram called Every Day Counts. The FHA spreads the word through workshops and white papers. Page said he has heard several presentations through the Florida Association of Counties. e dont buy their stuff hook, line and sinker, but this is proving to be a gooda pproach, said Page. I n fact, he said, the county spent $15,000 o n additional research to ensure it was maki ng the right choice. I think that was money well spent, said Page. Federal and state r oadway of f icials joined local leaders in May for a ceremonial project launch. A trade journal wrote a story with a MARY MAGUIRE/NEWS-LEADER C ounty Engineer Jonathan Page oversees reconstruction of Blackrock Road from A1A to Heron Isles Parkway. A new bridge over Lanceford Creek is part of the $3.7 million project. The roadway is closed for another two to three weeks and work is expected to finish in September Bad road at Blackrock no more Con s truction delays but end is finally in sight $1.00 City voters may decide parks issue ANGELA DAUGHTRY News-Leader C ity residents may have the chance to vote on funding a park that encompasses the city waterfront, if commissioners approve the ballot question before Aug. 5. If approved by voters, funding the waterfront park t hrough a general obligation bond would mean an increase i n city property taxes to pay for it. C ity commissioners held a special meeting Friday to discuss the possible referendum. City Attorney Tammi Bach, who asked for the special meeting, said the ballot question could be worded in a way that asks voters if they are interested in the city project, or could be a question about whether they want a general obligation bond, which would require repayment throughp roperty taxes. ou can always put in a non-binding question (on the b allot) that would enable you to get the pulse of voters without a specific commitment, Bach said. V eering in another direction, Vice Mayor Sarah Pelican asked about recent Facebook posts by Commissioner Johnny Miller (who was absent from Fridays meeting) regarding a plan for Main Beach Park. It seems theres renewed interest in that, too, Pelican s aid. Pelican also suggested doing an unofficial straw p oll with a not to exceed cost in the ballot question. C ommissioner Pat Gass said she was also interested to know if people would like to see an improved park at Main Beach, but seemed to be in favor of getting dir e ction fr o m the public in general. If we say the money is for (a specific project), we as commissioners cant fudge, Gass said. Gass also stressed the need to educate the public. If were going into debt, we need to educate the popul ation, Gass said. If money is spent, the people in this com m unity are spending it. Mayor Ed Boner said he had mixed feelings about putting the pr o ject out for the voters to decide on. People tr ust you to do things a cer t ain way Boner said. e cant go to the polls every time we need to make a big decision. I heard (the peoplethey want it right now, Commissioner Charles Corbett said,p ounding the dais. That s why were here. ... Dont we a lready have an estimate from Zev Cohen? Resident and Florida Inland Navigation District Commissioner L y nn W i lliams told commissioners city vot ers would vote no to any incr ease in taxes, whether for Main Beach or a city waterfront park. This is a town of many factions, Williams said. We need you to weave through this tricky business to come to the right conclusion. Williams also urged commissioners to get going on a r ecently approved small waterfront park at parking lot B at the city marina. The estimated cost for that plan is about $200,000. e could have that park in place by mid-October $5 million more for St. Johns ferry JACKSONVILLE The St. Johns River Ferry has received an additional $4.97 million to be used towar d the replacement of the slip walls at both the Maypor t and Fort George landings. The funding consists of a $1 million appropriation in the states budget (signed by Gov Rick Scott on Monday) and a $3.97 million Passenger Ferry Grant awarded by the U.S. Depar tment of T ranspor tation (USDOT Monday This funding overcomes what was perceived to be a nearly insurmountable amount of capital dollars needed to make str uctural impr ove ments necessary for the continued operation of the ferry, and will go a long way to r eplace the slip walls in Mayport and Fort George said John Crescimbeni, chairman of the St. Johns River Ferry Commission. The $1 million appropriation is the result of legislation sponsored this year by both Sen. Aar on Bean and Rep. Janet Adkins. The St. Johns River Fer ry Commission thanked Scott, Bean, Adkins as well as the entire Duval delegation for recognizing the importance of the St. Johns River Fer r y which pr ovides r egional trans portation options with national significance. The $3.97 million grant awar ded by the USDOT is administered separately thr ough the Federal Transit Administrations (FTA) Passenger Ferry Grant Program, which provides funds to support existing ferry service, establish new fer r y ser vice, or help to repair and modernize ferry boats, terminals and related facilities.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK 3A W EDNESDAY J UNE 4, 2014 NEWS News-Leader If were going into debt, we need to educate the population. If money is spent, the people in this community are spending it COMMISSIONER PAT GASS Williams said. It will support the (Community Redevelopment Area) and you people s hould be behind it. You ought to be leading the charge to do t hat, and avoid a referendum. I dont agree with a referendum, resident and city activist Lou Goldman said. I feel theres already been a referendum when you got elected. C ommissioners agreed the truncated plan for parking lotB should go forward regardless, but City Manager Joe Gerrity reminded them that funding for that project was still not in place. He also noted there were still holes in the city budget due to the city golf c ourse and marina losing money. Impact fees will not cover 100 percent of (the parking lot B plan), Gerrity said. I would hate to not be able to make a $200,000-400,000 improve-m ent, but right now we havent identified the funding. Resident Eric Bartelt, who worked on the parking lot B plan before approval, said commissioners should consider completing the smaller park p lan as leverage for voters b efore they decide on a comp lete waterfront park. (Completing B may be the opportunity to convince people this is the right thing to do, Bartelt said. Consulting firm Zev Cohen of Jacksonville estimated in 2 012 a complete waterfront p ark at the Fernandina Harbor M arina and water f r ont would cost about $6 million. The city borrowed $2.6 million for P hase I of the strategic plan called Forward Fernandina, b ut the project was controversial from the start, and comm issioners voted last year to return much of the borrowed money. According to Gerrity, city residents are still paying off t he portion of the Forward Fernandina loan that was not r eturned to the bank. A franchise fee was added to resid ential utility bills at about 55 cents per $100 at the time of the loan. The city commission voted to return a little more t han $1 million, Gerrity wrote in an email Monday. However, t he principal payment stayed the same but for a shorter d uration. The interest was cut by $12,000/year General obligation bonds are borrowed for specific purposes and are paid back by the c itys pledging to repay the bond through its property taxes. Revenue bonds can be paid back by sources other than property taxes, such as franchise fees. V oters approved a general o bligation bond in 2001 for the a cquisition of Egans Creek Greenway, other park areas and expanded beach accesses. According to Bach, the ordinance approving the referendum must be formally a dopted by Aug. 5 so the ballot l anguage can be sent to the N assau County Supervisor of Elections by Aug. 26.

Then, after earning a DBA (Doctor of Business Administration) in 1971 at George Washington University (and writing his doctoral dissertation on the O EO national antipoverty planning process), he was recruited to the Board of Governors of t he Federal Reserve System to serve as Deputy Controller and P rogram Director for Management Systems under the leade rship of Chairman Arthur Burns and Governor William S herrill. Business and Academic: Dr. Halley was recruited to be Senior Vice President for Corporate Planning and Acquisitions a t the Associates Corporation of North America. Then he was r ecruited to the School of Medicine at the University of P ennsylvania to organize and implement resource management functions under the leadership of Dean Edward J. Stemmler. He retired as Acting Vice President for Penn Medical Center and ExecutiveD irector for School of Medicine Administration. After retirem ent, he was a management consultant to Academic Medical C enters, which sought his proficiency in leading problem-solving teams and working with varied constituencies. His particular expertise was in strategic planning, budgeting and control systems, and he was an advocate of Total Quality Management. Public Service: After his r etirement, Dr. Halley took on yet a third career as a civic l eader. He was appointed by Gov. Lawton Chiles (with advice a nd consent of the Florida Senate where required) to various posts, including: Florida Real Estate Commission Education and Research Foundation A dvisory Committee (Member/Chair); Northeast Florida R egional Planning Council (Memberd o f Trustee, Florida Community College at Jacksonville (Member/Chair).

He was a s erious cyclist, often biking 100 miles a week, and he loved hiki ng alone and with his family in the Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains, Point Lobos State Reserve and in New Hampshires White Mountains. In all his various roles, and in all his dealings, Harry was a man of courage and fine character. People of many persuas ions liked Harry because they knew he was trustworthy, honest and fair-minded. People who knew him well regarded Harry as both a systematic thinker with a vision, and a pragmatic actor who liked to g et things done. As he said, Making things happen is not d one passively. It takes energy and commitment. Leaders must p ut themselves in the line of fire. Despite multiple serious medical conditions in recent years, Harry was a military man to the end: He died on his feet, as his caretakers helped him w alk down the hall.

Amelia Island needs anothe r accolade like it needs more trees or beaches or marshes. B ut it cant hurt. Leave it up to the offbeat website Buzzfeed to name Amelia Island to its list of Stunning Florida Towns You N eed to Visit. The listing is quite complimentary: Thei sland is full of Southern charm and offers a variety of l odging options, with price points from tent sites to the Ritz-Carlton. The list features other quietly spectacular locations b esides Amelia Island. Such as St. Augustine and SantaR osa Beach. Meanwhile, this and other a ccolades keep rolling in with the regularity of the incoming tide. Amelia Island was recognized a coup le weeks ago on The T oday Show as a hidden jewel for vacationers. And The G olf Channelsl ong-running and popular s how, Big Break, just finished airing. This segment was d evoted to Florida and was played and filmed on the eliteg olf courses at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation R esort. It featured young women golfers from around the U.S. vying for some $100,000 in cash/prizes and an automatic entry into an LPGA golf tournament. I n addition, Amelia Island is one of 20 nominees for Best U.S. Island as chosen by USA Today The winner will be announced today. The nominees were selected by the USA Today readers and staff and 10Best, a travel guide. On a bittersweet note, Carmike Cinemas, Inc. has broken ground on a 10-screen theater in Yulee. Actually, this is being called an entertainment complex. The new complex is able to seat 1,700 guests, and will e ntail wall-to-wall picture screens and digital surround sound. This is truly exciting. However, the bittersweet part is how this will impact the e xisting Carmike theater in Fernandina Beach. When you hear the commentary and tone of Carmike C inemas President and Chief Executive Officer David Passman, you wonder if the existing theater has a chance of surviving. Passman said: We are very excited to bring this exceptional entertainment complex to Yulee, Amelia I sland, Fernandina Beach and the surrounding communities while providing our valued guests with the ultimate in cinema-going entertainment. Our new location will feature large format digital presentation, bigger screens, better sound and plush seating for t he definitive enjoyment of all audiences. Yulee will soon join the select list of communities in Hometown America offering Carmikes uniquely i mmersive BigD large screen p r e sentation. As part of our f ocus for delivering the most immersive entertainment experience to our guests, we plan to continue expanding the number of BigD auditoriums and premium presentation choices across our circ uit. C ar mike boasts 252 thea ters in 37 states. And does it make business sense to have two theaters within seven miles of each other? Especially when the existing Carmike theater is beginningt o age and is probably due for s ome improvements. W hen contacted by several local residents, Carmike officials indicated that theyd consider keeping the existing the ater open. That is, if the community rallies around it. Its not just about a theater c losing. Yes, its more conveni ent for island residents to h ave a theater her e But surrounding businesses would also be impacted ina ripple-like ef fect. And this would not be a positive ripple. Steve Nicklas is a financial advisor with a major U.S. firmw ho lives on Amelia Island.

Mr. S terling, a cantankerous billionaire, has been a thorn in the side of the NBA for over 3 0 years and everyone knew what type of individual he w as. Racial issues resulted in his being sued a number of t imes over the years. Yet not only did the NBA do nothing, but a year ago one of the more respected black coaches in the NBA agreed to join the team. Then came the dumb conversation with his girlfriend and everything changed. I n fact, most people would probably agree on a s cale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the worst, that the conversation was a 10 for stupid and maybe a 7 or 8 for being racist. I am sure his PR people told him to apologize and maybe salvage the situation. Whatd id Mr. Sterling do? Not surprising, he doubled d own, attacked Magic J ohnson and made ever yt hing worse. Why, you ask, did he not just apologize for his state ments? Because in my opinion he lacks objectivity, one of the more important traits you need to look for w hen getting involved w ith people like Mr Sterling. M r. Sterling, like Bernie Madoff, Donald Trump and Aar o n Her n andez, is pr oba bly an example of people who have been extremely successful but lack objectivity. The only people who geth urt when doing business w ith them ar e their partners, t heir investors or their employers. When we wer e asked to do personal pr ofiles, one of the more important traits we measur ed was objectivity People with objectivity take r esponsibility for their mist akes, consider the needs of o thers and, since they are open to feedback, are able to develop and addr e ss issues. People who lack objectivity rationalize their mistakes and end up believing nothing is their fault. Since everyone loses objectivity under stress, people with lesso bjectivity can become dang erous when t hings go wrong. We advised c lients that we were u nable to coach mana gers or executives who lacked objectivity. One individual whom I was asked to coach was Ken, a CFO of a s uccessful hedge fund. The CEO loved Ken because he p ut in hundreds of hours each week and did whatever the CEO wanted. The CEO decided that growing the firm was important and hired a very successful executive as the new president. After about a month,t he new president, with whom I had worked at his p revious firm, decided that if h e was going to be success f ul, he needed to have his executive team become mor e leadership than management focused. After doing an employee attitude study, where Ken was labeled the worst executive t o work for, the president a sked me to coach Ken. W e d id an assessment and it was obvious Ken put himself under a lot str e ss and lacked objectivity However the president advised that, as Ken was a favorite of the CEO, we had to give it a try.A nd we did. Interestingly, w hen I met with Ken he s eemed very open to development, admitting he needed to make some changes. So we would meet for a couple of hours every few weeks and we would come up with a plan for what K en needed to do to change t he way he operated. At t he next meeting, Ken would be apologetic but would advise that he just did not have the time to complete any of the tasks or plans we had agr eed upon. Ther e would be incidents which Ken advised could not be avoided. Finally, after sixm onths, I admitted defeat and advised the president that Ken s lack of objectivity made it impossible to continue. About three months later, Ken was taken out of his position as CFO and put in a special finance position without any direct reports, reporting to the CEO where his lack of objectivity didn t really matter. In another situation, a new CEO whom I knew well wanted to introduce our coaching pr ogram to the company. The head of Human Resour ces, whom we had never met, decided she needed to take the profile first. When my partner advised me that she was the first executive in his 40 years in the business to test out as having zer o objectivity I knew we were in big trouble. The feedback session was a disaster. Not surprisingly, she advised the CEO we were a bad fit for the assignment, and since ther e wer e other firms to choose from, he was OK. Nine months later the CEO let her go and called me to compare notes. T en years later we were still coaching executives at the company. Many executives who lack objectivity ar e ver y focused, hardworking, smart and extremely successful. However they ar e dif ficult to work with and, since they never accept responsibility for mistakes, they are dangerous to rely on or trust. As employees you can usually deal with the issues, but when you go into business or invest with them you are generally at their mer cy Amelia Island resident Howard Pines has more than 30 years experience as CEO, chairman and founder of BeamPines, a premier firm in the Executive Coaching busi ness.

But County C ommissioner Danny Leeper and Public Works Director S cott Herring were there. More interesting will be the time-lapse video of the bridgework. On Friday, a camera sat on a temporary dam support, w hich is holding back the water of Lanceford Creek, to continu ously record the job site. Road geeks like me are g oing to have a field day with the video, said Page. And state and federal highway officials are going to use our project as a showcase. Thats exciting. The county is reconstructing a two-mile stretch of Blackrock Road from just north o f Heron Isles Parkway to A1A. The roadway will also widen to 24 feet from 18 feet. A left-turn lane is planned for northbound Blackrock Road onto westbound Heron Isles Parkway. Sidewalks will be added for $195,000, but they are going to s top about 50 feet shy of the railroad crossing. Thats because the Florida Department of Transportation is overhaul-i ng the crossing in 2016-17. It will look confusing to people, but we didnt want to pay for sidewalks that will be ripped out in two years, saidP age. The state said they will match their work to our road. T he big project has a big p rice tag because the road has n ot been properly maintained, said Page. Id say the price is just about double, said Page. Its like not replacing shingles ony our roof. Its a lot more expensive once you let this thing go. P age said Blackrock Road h as not been overhauled since t he 1950s and is in bad shape. Its the worst, he said. The county is picking up the entire $3.7 million tab for this project without financial contribution from the state. The m oney will come from transportation impact fees, though the sidewalks will be paid from the general fund since, by ordinance, impact fees can only be used to increase roadway capacity. Transportation fees have not been collected since June 2008. The account balance currently stands at $1.5 million, d own from $11.7 million when t he county halted the fees. M ore people and traffic in t he area are adding to the press ure on the roadway. The Heron Isles subdivision is bustling again with new housing, and Page said a traffic study conducted in 2009 supp orts growing numbers. A ccor ding to the study, the a verage daily number of vehic les is 3,381 per day, and by 2 020 is expected to jump to 4,894 vehicles. The study also looked at peak hours, from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. The existing daily average is 4,700, and that number is expected to jump to 6,400 vehi cles in 2020. That Blackrock Road is in b ad shape is not news to people who live along it. This includes Bill Young, 68. Page stopped his county pickup truck (with hand-crank windows because trimming the budget means no automatic windows for staff vehicles) on his driveway. He knows his daughter Ella Cowin, 45, from high school Y oung, who said he moved t o the ar ea in the 1950s, wants t o know when the roadway i mprovement is coming to his h ouse. He lives closer to Chester Road, well outside the projects boundaries. I would gladly pay more money in taxes to get the roads f ixed, said Young. A dollar or t wo sounds r easonable. And w hy not a gas tax? A few penn ies sounds like a good deal to m e to get the burden off property taxpayers. His daughter shared a different concern. She said, I want to know when theyre going to stop paving over the whole of Y ulee. M M o o n n e e y y d d w w i i n n d d l l e e s s There is not a lot of money in the bank for new roadway p rojects in Nassau County. About $1.5 million, according to the clerks office. The reconstruction of a two-mile stretch of Blackrock Road under way now costs $3.7 million, though the lead project engineer says the cost would be half that if the roadway had been properly maintained over the years. But the county does not have a lot of money for maintenance either. B lackrock Road is funded with transportation impact fees, which were last collected in 2008. A t that time, the fund balance was $11.7 million, according to the clerks finance chief deputy. It is now down to $1,542,144 in available funding, says Mary Potochnik. Aspecial task force has spent more than two years looking at getting the fees started back up. The chairman is Commissioner Danny Leeper, and he knows that the money is needed. T he group is almost ready to present its final recommendation, but they cancelled a meeting this week to give traffice ngineers, who have been paid more than $175,000, more time to look at fees for churches. Religious organizations say they dont think they should pay, and the group is leaning in that direction. County Attorney David Hallman said the date for the next meeting has not been set.

SABRINA ROBERTSON Nassau County Managers Office P erhaps you have heard of impact fees but are not really sure what they are or what they are used for. Impact fees are collected during the permitting p rocess for new construction in the unincorporated areas of N assau County because each new structure or expansionc auses an impact on the county in some way. For example, c onstruction of new homes has an impact on the amount of traffic traveling on a particular road, an increase in calls for fire/rescue and law enforcement servi ces and an increase in the need for new parks and facilities. C urrently there are five different types of impact fees i mposed by the Board of County Commissioners, in addition to the School Board impact fees which are collected by the county on behalf of the School B oard. While each type of i mpact fee collected serves a different purpose, all are collected to be used strictly on capital improvement projects. Lets explore those different impact f ees and look at how some of those funds have been used toi mprove our county over the past five years. R ecreation Impact Fees were created based upon the theory that for every new house built, additional parks and open space should be made available to the community. Since 2010, Recreation Impact Fees have b een used for several recreation related projects including a new r estroom facility at the Yulee Ballpark, Bryceville Ballpark TBall Field improvements and for construction of the Julia Street Recreational Path on Amelia Island. Nassau County currently has four ballparks, f ive beachfront parks and seven boat ramps, however, based on t he current population, Nassau County is lacking in the amount of recreation and open space c urrently available to its citizens. Staff is drafting the countys first Recreational Plan in an effort to identify the areas where additional recreation is needed and to provide a clear plan on how to effectively meet t he needs of our communities. Administrative Space Impact F ees are used for building, renovating and/or expanding public buildings such as courthouses, maintenance facilities, jails and administrative offices. Though Administrative Impact Fees have not been used for p rojects recently, the muchneeded Sheriffs Administration B uilding may be funded partially by Administrative Impact Fees, in addition to Law E nforcement Impact Fees which are discussed below. Law Enforcement Impact Fees and Fire Impact Fees are based on the knowledge that public safety needs are directly proportional to the presence of p eople. With growth comes the need for additional fire stations, l arger jails and equipment for new deputies. Fire Impact Fees have been used to partially funda new fire station in Bryceville and staff is currently investigating the possibility of using Fire Impact Fees to assist with f unding a new fire station on the West Side. A combination o f Fire and Law Enforcement Impact Fees are also being considered for funding a new 911 call center. The last impact fee is the Transportation Impact Fee. This fee is perhaps the most i mportant as it funds major road projects such as paving and widening, intersection improvements, signalization upgrades and expansion of bridges. When y ou consider that the average household has two cars, youh ave to realize that for every new house built, the number of c ars traveling on our roads is growing exponentially. Nassau County Public Works has been working hard to insure our roads are safe and have coordinated numerous major transportation projects since 2010 i ncluding intersection improvements at: 14th Street at Lime 14th Street at Simmons Sadler Road at Citrona Drive US 301 at Ford Road US 301 at Sandy Ford Road Lem Turner Road at Spring Lakes Estate CR 108 at CR 115 US 1 at Ratliff Road Transportation Impact Fees also funded Chester Road widening from Home Depot to Heron Isles Parkway and Blackrock Road widening w hich is currently under way. Money available in the Transportation Impact Fee Fund is currently dwindling as collection of these fees has been s uspended since July 1, 2008. The county is currently workingw ith a consultant to create a new Mobility Fee to replace T ransportation Impact Fees. Though the Mobility Fee is similar and will be collected during the permitting process, it differs from the current Transportation Impact Fee in that transportation projects are i dentified prior to the money being collected from the cust omer. This allows the customer to have a clear understanding on what their money will be used for. It is important that the county works quickly in developing the new Mobility Fee as the need for road improvements n ever ceases. A final draft of the Mobility Fee will be presented t o the Board of County Commissioners for consideration later this summer. Sabrina Robertson is Administrative Assistant/ Project Specialist in the Nassau County Managers Office. 6 A CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK W EDNESDAY J UNE 4, 2014 OPINION News-Leader T here are five different types of impact fees imposed by the Board of County Commissioners.

I have a suggestion for our esteemed county commission: W hy not obtain and publish a f inancial statement listing the a ccount(s that contain the funds for the sherif f s administration building? Have this statement authenticated by appropriate official(s financial institution(sein the funds are deposited, and then havet his authentication certified by the c lerk of the court. Publish this seco nd document side-by-side with the f inancial statement. How about it, county commis sioners? Do you think you could do that? It sounds like a quick and sim ple answer to the questions your constituents are asking you. Inquiring minds want to know. A ndrew J. Curtin F ernandina Beach F F P P U U r r a a t t e e h h i i k k e e I do not suppor t FPU s r e quest for a rate incr ease, based on the poor justifications presented in the article on May 21. Please considert he following comments: 1 Failure to properly assess the c apital expenditur es necessar y to continue to operate a utility the size of FPU seems to be a failur e of Chesapeake management and its consultants par ticularly during a significant corporate purchase sucha s FPU. For example, the wooden p oles in my yard have been marked w ith r ed metal tags denoting the tops and bottoms of the poles are rotten, and theyve been tagged since way befor e 2009 and those tags are visible from the street. All one needs to do is drive around town and look at the poor condition of the poles to know that the entire system looks value engineered and maintenance appears to have been defer r ed for some time in many areas. 2. On South Fletcher (wher e I live) the utilities look ter rible and cause the entire street to look like a tenement, like a ghetto. Residents have been commenting for the 29 years Ive lived here that the utilities desperately need to be buried. During windstor ms, under gr ound utilities would be safer. Undergr ound utilities would r equire less maintenance. The South Fletcher r esidents did not ask for the enormous and ugly concrete poles to be erected. To my knowledge, no notice was provided they were coming nor were residents provided any oppor tunity for input. W e wer e not told they would have an impact on our wallet. W e do not now wish to be billed for their arbitrary cost, in ar rears. Who approved and provided the permission for FPU to erect these enormous and ugly concrete poles along the beach road on the island? Next time you drive along South Fletcher imagine this str eet without poles and wires. It would be beautiful, benefit visitors and r esidents alike and help add revenues to the tax base over time through improved property valuation and increased sales taxes generated by visitors. 3. Providing a 6-week notice in the middle of the calendar year to businesses and residents who budget their expenses on an annual basis that utility costs are suddenly going to jump 6.7 percent seems pretty unacceptable to me. The information provided in the article was also sketchy and vague. Ar e rates going up equally for both business and r esidential customers? Or will one group be footing the bill for the other? 4. 6.7 per cent is triple the Consumer Price Index (CPI standard by which most rate increases are governed. 5 Basing the increase on lack of g rowth is interesting. The city of F ernandina Beach is fairly well d eveloped with very strict zoning rules that prohibit mowing down existing single-family homes and erecting high density developments. In 2009, during the decision to buy the company with a pro-forma based on population gr owth, wher e was this growth expected to be? I request the city of Fernandina Beach provide a formal position on the state of above-ground utilities on the island, as well as its position on this unexpected and sudden rate increase by FPU, as they are allowed to be operating as a monopoly within our community If you live on South Fletcher and wish to be involved in discussion about burying utilities, visit www.southfletcher.nextdoor.com and sign up. You must be one of the 1,200 or so pr oper ty owners along South Fletcher. Your identity will be verified by your neighbors before you ar e allowed to join. It is free and you can quit later if you dont like it. The article on May 21 also stated a meeting would be scheduled by FPU for input. I look for war d to learning the date and time, and hopefully that infor mation is not r eleased the day befor e the meeting, to allow residents to plan time to be included. I did write a letter to Mr Householder last year, and received no response. I just received my latest electrical bill yesterday, and no notice of a rate incr ease was inser t ed in the bill. P W illiam Smith Amelia Island Editors note: A public hearing on the proposed FPU rate increase has been scheduled for 5 p.m. Aug. 20 at the Atlantic Avenue Recreation Center. W W a a t t e e r r f f r r o o n n t t p p a a r r k k Again, our city commissioners ar e working hard and long with little or no results. To my surprise, they have taken a step Forward regarding the long issue of the waterfront park in Fernandina Beach. Many years ago, a plan was developed and appr o ved by the then commissioners to develop a public park on our water front where our citizens of Fernandina Beach could enjoy music, picnics or watch the a ctivities on the river. If you rememb er, a committee of two groups, the W aterfront Committee and the P arks and Recreation Advisory Committee, developed a waterfront plan which was approved by the then commissioners with funds from the approved Forward Fernandina. Funds in the form of a 2 percent loan paid by the citizens. The next commissioners gave the loan back and money was also given back. The park was planned with many of the issues that are brought out today in the various workshops, i.e., parking. However, in fairness to our past efforts, the original plans were put in the file cabinet. In the past year, a reinvented plan was presented by Mr. (Randy most of the former plans in but for minor changes. However, the major difference was the private funding of the park which was pr esented to various committees and to the city commissioners. On the issue of the parking, some good suggestions have come out. My view and suggestion is if a parking structure is considered a logical spot could be the lot acr oss for City Hall. Special events will have a dif ficult time in tr ying to solve a 100,000 incr ease once or twice a year. More consideration to the daily and nor mal parking needs would be a better beginning. The public funding is a good idea but a difficult issue that the citizens must understand would take a long time and consideration we have tried this befor e. (i.e., the water slide). During several of the work shops held, many comments were, ell, the tax dollars and etc. would not be spent. No tax dollars and on and on. Wrong, tax dollars will be involved believe me. Another issue, we can t af for d a loan many of our city capital impr ovements ar e thr ough loans, bonds and grants. These ar e sour ces that the city most likely could af ford to finance this park. I believe that too many people are looking at their own plans and perhaps their own interests. Like the old saying Too many cooks might spoil the br o th. I have a personal r eason for seeing this water front park developed, having spent many hours with the two committees (Waterfront Park a nd Parks/Recreation Committee), p ublic hearings and various staff h elp we do have a good plan. N ow, before we go off, the commissioners should consider the two above committees for their input and help in final plans as (one who has worked with big projects) if you go out for bids, any changes or additions could be costly You already, have several individuals from these committees, if willing, could be a separate group of advisors reporting to the commissioners and overseeing the appr oved plans. My famous professor once questioned, Why have an expensive fountain when you have a beautiful river to look at? John Megna Fernandina Beach T T r r o o v v e e o o f f n n e e w w s s Catching up with the news between travel trips, we discovered quite a tr ove in the May 28 NewsLeader First was a rather odd and overblown response from county commissioners, ostensibly about a letter but appar ently about an ongo ing internal dustup with the County Clerk. Then a ver y welcome admon ishment fr om our Editor suggest ing among other things that public ser vice is no place for thin skins. This is very good and healthy discourse, even generating a letter from the County Manager. Thanks to all. Another letter fr om a senior school official attempts to explain why cutting the school week one hour is because it has alr eady been approved by the board (to satisfy contract negotiations) and put on the calendar. Well enough! But at a time of national concern about shrinking academic rigor, the clarification seems shallow Just because all the mundane bureaucratic wickets have been executed doesn t nec essarily make it a sensible decision to cut still another hour fr om our kids real coursework. Another case of the tail wagging the dog? T. J. Robertson Fernandina Beach Amazing e vening of music I was treated to a treat for all my senses as music and setting combined to provide a delightful evening when I attended Beer and G-Strings II: Gypsy Sparks at Walkers Landing. The next to the last performance of the A melia Island Chamber Music Festival, the e vening featur ed inter na t ionally r e nowned violinist Susie Park, distinguished pianist Elizabeth Pridgen, and the festivals General and Artistic Director, gifted cellist Christopher Rex. The first half of the conc ert featured the trio perf or ming lively music in k eeping with the gypsy theme, including Hungarian Dances and a piano trio by Brahms. I was especially moved by the third movement of the Piano Trio Op. 87 in C Major by Brahms. Rexe xplained the piece s char a cter and mood first, giving the audience a n insight into the composer s intention for the beautiful composition. As violin spoke and cello answer ed, I could almost visualize lovers tor n apar t by circumstance, reaching out to one another across time and space. The piano contributed per fectly to the drama and pathos o f the composition. P ridgens deft touch continued during h er tour de force performance of Brahms Hungarian Rhapsody, eliciting an enthusiastic response from the audience. Rounding out the first part of the evenings performance was Gypsy Airs by Pablo Sarasate, performed by Park and Pridgen. The violin part of this piece was so exquisite, I found myself absolutely spellbound. Park made her instr ument cry, laugh and sing with pr ofound emotion. And Pridgen had no trouble at all keeping up with Park during the pieces final portion. More than one foot was tapping in the audience as the pair navigated the quick, intricate sequence with ease. After an inter mission spent admiring the natural beauty of the marsh surrounding Walkers Landing, the second half of the concert began with a 20th century piece by Zoltan Kodaly. Duo for violin and Cello, Op. 7 composed in 1914, is the music of the people, said Rex, who explained the textures, cadences and flavors of each movement of the composition first as he and Parks played excerpts befor e joining forces to play the powerful, challenging piece. Although I found this selection a bit too discordant and erratic for my taste, I was in awe of the technical prowess displayed in its per for mance. I was amazed not only by the memory r equir ed to play such a demanding piece, but by the way Park and Rex mer ged their talents to pr oduce a memorable performance that brought the audience to their feet. The final selection, Tzigane by Maurice Ravel, is a favorite of Parks and was a perfect finale to an exceptional evening of music. I hope the Chamber Music Festival will hold mor e per formances at Walkers Landing because the beautiful surroundings and intimate setting are a perfect venue for concer ts. Heather A. Perry is reporter at the NewsLeader. firstname.lastname@example.org STEVE SACK/THE MINNEAPOLIS ST AR TRIBUNE F or a local political writer the past couple of weeks or so have been a veritable cornucopia of goodies discussions surrounding an infuriated county commission, a disgruntled constituent and First A mendment rights; that same infuriated commissions dust-up with the clerk of the courts a nd the meaning of separation of powers and checks and balances; the non-issue issues regarding the property rights of chicken owners and neighbors of chicken owners; dogs sitting and dining at a table near you, etc., pick one to paraphrase Holden Caulfield, Theyre coming in the window A ll of the above capture the imagination and attention of the political class, and they c an be entertaining, but most are like splinters once found, you get out a needle and take it out the area flares up for awhile, it festers and then it goes away. The plan for a waterfront park, however, is like the Phoenix, it keeps rising out of its own ashes and will not go away. O ne reason the ill-conceived waterfront park concept keeps hanging around, like a s plinter that hasnt been removed, is the publics perception that the greater community actually wants a waterfront park; its affordable, needed its just one of the many projects the commission hasnt gotten done. Baloney. It is true that a handful of ardent, widee yed, never-say-die supporters of some kind of waterfront park usually Disneyesque, comp lete with water fountains and neatly trimmed landscaping shaped like pirates (OK, I made t hat last part up but I can see it happening) r outinely parade their plans before increasingl y disinterested commissions over and over. T hey just never make it out of the due dilig ence Q and A. It usually went something like this: W ide-eyed supporter: This park will be great; itll be fantastic! C ommissioner feigning interest: But whats the purp ose of the park; whos it for? W ide-eyed supporter: Itll be an economic driver for downtown; itll be great; itll be fantastic! Commissioner feigning interest: But how much is this going to cost, and how will it impact parking? Wide-eyed supporter: I d ont know, but itll be great; itll be fantastic! M ayor: Next item on the agenda.... This time, though, its a little bit scary, especially for taxpayers the commission is actually thinking about putting the waterfront park issue on the ballot in the form of 1) a nonbinding referendum; a straw ballot, or 2) a g eneral obligation bond, or GOB. The straw ballot thing, I dont know, what h appens if it passes? Will the wide-eyed enthusiasts play the mandate card and demand action? Aside imagine this: dad gathers the family around the kitchen table for a discussion about their next vacation: Hey kids, all in favor of spending a week in Vail, Colo., snowskiing, snowboarding, sitting around the fire at o ur rustic lodge sipping hot chocolate and doing other snow things say aye. Aye, the e xcited, foaming-at-the-mouth family shouts back in unison! Dad, are we really going to Vail and do all those things? Nah, says dad,f eigning interest, I just wanted to get your i nput. Thats what a straw ballot does for you. Nothing. The GOB, well, thats another story. If the GOB passes theyll have to do it, theyll have to build some kind of park at the foot of CentreS treet. How much that park will cost is anybodys guess. How the park will affect parking a nd traffic, well, thats anybodys guess, too. The good thing about a GOB: all of that will h ave to be itemized, detailed and explained to taxpayers the ones wholl have to pay the t hing. My impressions are these: The citys portion of the waterfront from the foot of Centre Street south to parking lot E with its public boardwalk, sun shelters and green space, has never looked better or been more inviting. The public dock at the foot of Centre Street is a gathering place throughout the day f or tourists and hometowners alike, but especially in the evening, at sunset, and the comm ents are always, always positive, never negative. The real conversation concerning improving the waterfront should be about the private properties from Centre Street north. The conversation should be about ways the city could work with property owners to i mprove their property, if that means improving Front Street, lets talk about it, if that m eans putting in a bulkhead and creating more land for property owners to work with, lets talk about that; lets start having meaningful conversations about realistic ways we can improve the waterfront. Sunset the CRA (it should be re-named the DSF developer slush fund) and have a c onversation about other ways to enhance the waterfront that will benefit the general fund t he taxpayers of Fernandina Beach. But lets stop having conversations about a waterfront park. I know, it sounds nice, but dow e really need it? Can we afford it? Will it i mpact already stressed infrastructure? We dont need a straw ballot, we dont need a GOB, lets finally get out a needle like my mother used to do and take out the splinter sure, itll flare up a little bit, itll fester, but itw ill finally go away.

Here in Fernandina my usual morning walk is from five to seven miles, either along our beaches when the tide is right or in the Egans Creek Greenway when i t isnt. B ut lately Ive star ted a new habit, not reall y a great one for my fitness I must say. Sometimes after my walks here on the island I top it off with a trip to T-Rays to fill up on a mighty breakfast that only they serve right eggs, spicy sausage links, homemade biscuits, cheese grits. Y ummy But my waistline is starting to reflect this new habit too. O n a recent trip to Long Island, N.Y., to v isit my in-laws I still kept to this patter n. In t he mor n ings I leave Mom-Pat s house in quaint Blue Point and trek along a now familiar route. First its a stop at the nearby deli to pick up a cup of coffee and then I head down Blue Point Avenue to the town fishing dock. Ever curious, I spend a few minutes chatting with the local fishermen, who are always willing to chat. Sometimes they ar e netting crabs l ur ed with a chicken par t on a string. Other times they are catching fish, b ut rarely. Mostly they are just hanging out, it seems, enjoying the view and their time together. Further down along the b ayside in sheltered inlets a few commercial fishing boats a re docked. Some clammers still work these waters, dragging rakes along the bottom and pulling up clams, but the clam population has declined and this fishing practice is diminishing as well. But fish-e rmen, ever resourceful, now c atch horseshoe crabs which t hey use to bait traps for whelks and eels, among other things. When I continue my walk it s along r e siden tial str eets bisected by a handful of small natu ral ponds and streams flowing into the bay. This time, in spring, each pond had its own resident family of geese, usually two vigilantp arents and an ever-declining number of offs pring each day I pass them. One day I saw one reason for this decline in numbers. The l argest snapping turtle Ive ever seen, with its head the size of a salad bowl, was visible underwater, right near a group of goslings. The next day, there was one gosling less in that batch. It makes me wonder about our pro-l iferation of geese. In many of our man-made retention ponds there are few such predators t o keep the geese numbers in check. In our area it is not unusual for as many as eight geese to be successfully raised by their par ents, not the two or thr ee that make it in Blue Point. But spring in Blue Point is full of other natural wonders besides geese. As I walk alongt he residential streets I enjoy the sights and s mells of cher r y tr ees in bloom, with flower p etals raining on me as I pass under them. Irises, tulips, daffodils and lilac and forsythia bushes ador n the well-tended gar d ens of those wealthy enough or long-lived enough to afford to live here near the water. As I walk in this charming neighborhood, other walkers greet me, their dogs wag their tails and areh appy when I pet them. In many ways, despite t he dif fer ent scenery, its not so unlike my walks on Amelia Island where I also chat with e veryone and pet their dogs. But, unfortunately, my routine breakfast after a walk is easy to fulfill in Long Island too. About three miles from Mom-Pats home, in the village of Patchogue, Ive found my T-Rayss ubstitute. This area of town is Latino and Ive discovered a little caf frequented by Spanishs peaking residents with origins from many countries. Although English is not well understood by the ser v ers behind the buf f et count er I find it easy enough to get a giant plateful of beans and rice and fried plantains and eggs and pork chops and tamales and what have you. All for maybe three dollars! S o, each morning I waddle out of this caf a nd tr ek back to Mom Pat s home in Blue P oint about two pounds heavier, it seems, than I started. But hey, this is a vacation after all! But those T Ray s br eakfasts at home? OK, so a once a week splur ge never hur t s anyone, right? Pat Foster-Turley is a zoologist on Amelia Island.

The Nassau County Property Appraisers Office has released the 2014 estimated preliminary tax roll and the initial numbers show an increase in the tax base for the first time since 2007. A ccording to Property Appraiser Mike Hickox, strong s ales activity during the 2013 calendar year have helped stabilize the real estate market by reducing inventory levels. The strong demand and lower inventory has caused values to increase as the market h as shifted from a buyers market to a sellers market in some p rice ranges, said Hickox in a press release. These are signs of an improving economy Hickox presented the 2014 estimated values to the taxing authorities on Thursday so they can begin their budget process and determine the tax rate for the property owners in Nassau County. The 2014 market value estimates increased by almost 5 percent to $9.718 billion. The m arket value includes all property before any exemptions, c lassifications or capped assessments. Taxable values have increased as well; however, property owners are protected by the Save Our Homes amendment which caps the amount the a ssessed value can increase. The 2014 cap is based on the c onsumer price index (CPI 1.5 percent. Non-homesteaded properties are capped at 10 percent. In 2014, Nassau Countys taxable value is estimated to be about $6.45 billion, compared to a little more than $6.20 billion in 2013, or about a 3.8 percent increase. The city of Fernandina could see the taxable value rise to $1.6 billion, an increase of over 4 perc ent. Callahan is estimated to have a n increase in its taxable value to over $69 million, up by almost 2 percent from last year. Hilliard is expected to see an increase of almost 2 percent, bringing its taxable value to over $74 million. T he official preliminary tax roll is expected to be released to t he taxing authorities and the state Department of Revenue by July.

Improving economy lifts Nassau property values TAMPA Hurricane season began on Sunday, but three in 10 (29 percent) of Florida residents do not make advanced preparations, according to a r ecent AAA Consumer Pulse s ur vey. C olorado State University predicts a below-average hurricane season with nine named storms, three hurricanes and one major hurricane this year. If a named stor m moved towar d Florida, nearly one in five (17 p ercent) Floridians say they w ould not leave their homes. H owever of those who would evacuate, the majority (65 percent) say they would only leave for a Category 3 hurricane or greater. Residents should stay vigi lant and be prepared for a major w eather event, said Mark J enkins, spokesman, AAA The A uto Club Gr o up. Par t of that p reparation includes having a storm kit, evacuation plan and flood insurance. Every home is in a flood zone, whether you live near the coast or not. Floods are the number one disaster in the United States. Homes in low risk zones account for 25 percent of flood claims every year. Just two inches of water in a 2,000-squar efoot home can cause as much as$ 21,000 or more in damage. H owever only 31 percent of F loridians have flood insurance, which is separate from homeowners insurance. A preferred risk flood insurance policy costing 85 cents a day will cover $100,000 in str uc tural damage and $40,000 for d amage to contents inside the h ome. Only half of people know there is a 30-day waiting period for a new flood policy to take effect, Jenkins said. If you wait until a storm is named and heading your dir ection, you will be too late. Now is a great time t o check with your homeowne s insurance pr ovider to e nsur e you ar e covered before t he busy storm season begins. AAA also offers these hurricane preparation tips: Secur e Y our Home Inspect your home for minor repairs needed to roof, windows, down spouts, etc. T rim trees or bushes that could cause damage to your home in case of high winds. Make a Plan Develop a Family Emergency Plan to i nclude ways to contact each o ther alternative meeting locat ions, and an out-of-town contact person.

Stoll, 35, of Hilliard was seriously injured when his motorcycle struck a deer Saturday night. S toll was driving westbound on Henry Smith Road east of Timber Trail when he struck the deer in the roadway and lost control of his vehicle, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Stoll was ejected onto the roadway and struck his head, police said. The deer died at the scene, according to the report. The accident occurred about 8:35 p.m. and Stoll was transported to UF Shands in J acksonville. F F l l e e e e i i n n g g d d r r i i v v e e r r c c a a u u g g h h t t A man from St. Louis was a rrested on several charges by Nassau County deputies May 23 when he attempted to flee police after a traffic stop, according to a report. A deputy reported that as he headed south at the Florida/Georgia line the morning of May 23 on I-95, he o bserved a black VW Jetta in the center lane begin slowing d own to create distance from his patrol car. Due to the VW driver abruptly applying breaks, a truck was forced to change lanes abruptly to avoid colliding with the VW, according to t he report. The deputy moved to the r ight, allowing the VW to pass, then pulled the driver over at mile marker 376, the report stated. On asking the driver for his license, registration and insurance, the deputy noticed a smell o f burnt marijuana, and also observed tobacco had been r emoved from a cigar in the center console. The driver, Leandro Planell, 40, reportedly told the deputy repeatedly that h e did not have any weed in t he car. A s the deputy waited for backup officers, he told Planell that, due to the smell of burnt marijuana, Planell would have to e xit the vehicle for a search. According to the report, Planell stated, You do not have a warrant, and I do not consent to your search, to which the deputy replied he did not need a warrant as he could smell the m arijuana. Planell then reportedly b ecame agitated, put the car in drive and fled at a high rate of speed. The deputy began pursuing Planell, who was reportedly driving at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour and weaving in and out of southbound traffic. Unable to pass cars in the c enter lane, Planell reportedly began passing cars on the shoulder of the highway, exiting at mile marker 373 and turning west on A1A. Planell eventually turned into a gas station and was apprehended by another deputy, according to the report. He was p laced in handcuffs and a search revealed a small amount of marijuana in his clothing. A witness told police that Planell had thrown a plastic shopping bag from the front passenger-side window during the pursuit. Police later recovered the bag, which contained 549.5 grams of marijuana, according to the report. Planell was charged with fleeing or eluding police with d isregard for safety of persons o r property; smuggling marijuana into the state; and possession of marijuana over 20 grams. C C r r a a i i g g s s l l i i s s t t d d e e a a l l f f o o i i l l e e d d A 20-year-old Fernandina Beach man was arrested May 2 3 after he was caught in an attempt to sell a stolen laptop on Craigslist, according to a Nassau County Sheriffs Office report. A Yulee resident told deputies May 23 that an Acer laptop valued at $425 had been stolen from his living room by s omeone who gained access to his home through an unlocked garage door. He said that after discovering the laptop missing, he found an identical laptop being advertised on Craigslist for $200 that he believed was his. After checking a computer d atabase, police found the phone number on the Craiglist ad belonged to Xavier Dewaye May, 20, 123 Hirth Road, No. 1502, Fernandina Beach. Another witness told deputies that May and another person had arrived at her home earlier in the day to ask if she was interested in buying a black laptop, the report stated. The co-defendant, a student a Yulee High School, was questioned along with May, who r eportedly told police the cod efendant took the laptop with the victims permission. May also told police the co-defendant had used Mays phone number in the Craigslist ad. The laptop was returned to the victim, according to the r eport, and May was charged with grand theft, burglary of an u noccupied dwelling and dealing in stolen property.

HEATHER A. PERRY News-Leader Ever since founder William Booth began knocking on the doors of prisons in 1852 offering to assist newly released offenders, the Salvation Army has been doing its best to provide a helping hand to this often overlooked segment of society t hrough Salvation Army Correctional Services (SACS M elvin Malcolm, chief of Misdemeanor Probation at the Yulee location, said his office assists those who commit misdemeanor offenses including petty theft of less than $300, simple battery, criminal misc hief, DUI and other misdemeanors. These individuals h ave served a year in jail and paid up to a $100 fine. After a career in law enforcement, Malcolm has heard it all and seen just about everything, so he is well equipped to advise his clients. The main thing I try to do is encourage them because when t hey come in here, they feel like t he weight of the world is on t heir shoulders. I n addition to helping them m anage their probation, the a gency works with individuals t o address all needs including economic, social and emotional. e try to help those who have been arrested by referring them to other ser vices, said M alcolm, who gives each prob ationer a Nassau County C ommunity Resource Guide t hat lists a myriad of service organizations able to provide assistance with everything from housing, food, childcare, health, shelter and transportation. V eterans ar e given infor ma t ion for contacts to help with t heir specific needs. I ndividuals with mental health, drug or alcohol issues are referred to Starting Point Behavioral Health, McPherson Counseling Services or Awakening Nassau to complete cour t or der ed counseling. C lients are frequently r equired to perform communit y ser v ice and SACS par tners with local nonprofits to help them meet that requirement by arranging various projects such as picking up trash on designated sections of highway, clearing out a ditch or paintings tripes in a parking lot. This allows probationers to give back for the o ffense they committed a nd provides some savings in the community because the work is performed at no cost to taxpayers. T he agency networks with businesses to hire probationers a nd holds job fairs to increase their sphere of opportunities. The new location between Career Source and Family Support Services allows his office to provide more service, notes Malcolm, and now that t he Council on Aging bus service has created a bus stop at the L ofton Square shopping center, it is very convenient for his clients. For those convicted of domestic battery, there is a 26week batterers intervention program. Attendees are taught h ow to replace their power and control tendencies with more appropriate nonviolent ways of handling their relationships. An eight-hour anger management class helps probatione rs learn specific techniques for handling their anger. T he various classes, payments and community service h ave an impact on most probationers, notes Malcolm. Id say about 70 or 80 per cent of my clients get it. In other words, they see all that theyve had to go thr ough following a DUI or domestic bat-t ery, and how it impacts not only t hem but their families, and they say they don t want to have to deal with all that again. The Salvation Ar my Cor r e ctional Ser vices of fice is located at 96030 Lofton Square. Business hours are Monday,T uesday, Wednesday and F riday 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Thursday 9 a.m.-7 p.m. and the second Satur d ay of each month by appointment. Phone 225-1958.

SIN PERRY News-Leader Tom Christenson, the new e xecutive director of the Nassau Humane Society, likest o joke that his wife has all the animal degrees. H owever, Christenson was tapped for the top job thanks to an impressive track record building corps of volunteers and his own willi ngness to serve. C hristenson comes from seven years working for the First Coast YMCA, which he notes is not d issimilar from his new job in that both are nonprofits, so y ou are doing a lot of fundraising and looking for volunteers as well as working together with board members. Christenson, who replaces Brandy Carvalho after she departed for a job at White O ak Plantation this spring, knows a thing or two about volunteering himself. H e served a year in the A mericorps program, building h ouses in Kentucky after g raduating Minnesotas St. Mary University in 2005 with a Bachelor of Arts in Pastoral and Youth Ministry. Hes also on the board of directors for the Nassau County Special Olympics, among numerous other community endeavors too lengthy to list but includi ng Amelia Island Runners, t he Katie Ride for Life, the S hrimp Festival and First Coast Kids Tri. I had dyslexia growing up, said Christenson in a recent interview. As a result he sometimes spent time in special needs classes to help d eal with his disability, and i s there that I developed a l ove of working with kids with special needs. However as his wife, Jenny, pursued her studies she now works in the marine mammal training program at Naval Submarine Base Kings B ay in Georgia he moved to a ccommodate her car eer, first t o Miami and then to the First Coast eight years ago. Just over three years ago they settled in Fernandina Beach, pur chasing a home on the north end of the island t hat they share with their two r escue dogs, black labs n amed Ripley and T i de, or Rip-Tide for short. 12A W EDNESDAY J UNE 4, 2014 NEWS News-Leader CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK When the couple both natives of Minnesota first moved to Northeast Florida, Christenson initially took a m anagement job at the O range Park Dillar ds, but I k new that was not the path I wanted to go, so I applied to the Y. While Christenson started on the front desk as a membership associate at the McArthur Family YMCA here i n Fernandina Beach, he q uickly moved up the ladder a nd by May 2013 was named the Jacksonville Brooks Family YMCA aquatics director, supervising programs that totaled 1,750 par ticipants, 15 volunteers, 30 employees, five p ools and a $261,000 budget. It s r eally about building r e lationships in the communi ty, and thats what I do, Christenson said of his past experience and his new role at NHS. With the capital campaign it s especially exciting. Its those qualities that conv inced the Nassau Humane S ociety boar d of dir ectors that h e would be a good fit for their growing organization. o m has good leadership and interpersonal skills. His open communications and lead-by-example attitude should make the NHS family a s tronger unit, said board p r esident John Landregan. H owever, what really stood out is Christensons volunteer commitment. During the interview process, Tom discussed his role as the volunteer county director for the Nassau C ounty Special Olympics. He s tated if he was of fered the N HS executive director position, he would like to continue to volunteer with Special Olympics, said Landregan. Since NHS success is based on the number of volun-t eers, over 400, Toms comm itment to continue to volun t eer his personal time demonstrates his understanding of how important volunteers are to nonprofit organizations. It also means he is a good time manager and needs to have balance in his person-a l life, said Landregan. A s constr uction pr ogr ess e s on Nassau Humane Societys new shelter on city land acr o ss fr o m the munici pal airport, those skills will be needed more than ever. The estimated completion date is around the middle of July, said L andregan, and the design a nd layout ar e now clearly visi ble. It is really starting to take shape, said Landregan, though $350,000 is still needed to close the gap on the construction cost and fundraising is ongoing. T hat will be Christensons f ocus moving for ward, as well a s preparing the shelter to open and to make the transition from the old facility to the new, he said. Hes also in char ge of the NHS Dog Park on Airport Road and the a gencys Second Chance S tor e on South 14th Str eet. Expenses will rise and operational costs will be higher once the shelter opens, and with that fundraising will have to increase, Christenson noted. W ere completely open for all opportunities.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK OUTDOORS/ TIDES WEDNESDAY, JUNE4, 2014NEWS-LEADER/ FERNANDINABEACH, FL ORIDA On the eve of the 2014 Tallahassee Regional, Florida State University was recognized by Collegiate Baseball newspaper with a pair of Louisville Slugger All-Americans. D.J. Stewart and Luke Weaver were honored as secondand third-team All-Americans, respectively, in 2014. Stewart, who garnered All-ACC honors for the second year in a row, became the seventh Seminole in school history to garner Player of the Year accolades. He was also recently recognized as a semifinalist for both the Golden Spikes Award and Dick Howser Tr ophy. The sophomore outfielder heads into the NCAA T ournament ranked in the top 10 in the ACC in nine offensive categories while leading the league in average (.348), on-base percentage (.469) and slugging percentage (.561). He also ranks in the top 50 nationally in four categories including double per game (0.37, 31st), on-base percentage (34th), base-on-balls per game (0.75, 34th) and doubles (19, 35th). Stewart finished league play hitting .388 with 11 doubles, four home runs and 30 RBI in 26 games. The Yulee native sits second on the team in both multi-hit (19) and multi-RBI (12) games. He has recorded a career-high four hits three times in 2014. Stewart has r eached base safely in 50 of the 51 games in which he has played this year. W eaver of DeLand has served as Florida State's Friday night starter all season long. The junior right hander currently leads the team in wins (8), innings pitched (101.1) and strikeouts (81). In 15 starts, Weaver has posted a record of 8-3 with an ERA of 2.66. Opponents are hitting just .224 against Weaver this year. The award for both Seminoles marks the first of their careers. Stewart was named a first-team preseason All-American by Collegiate Baseball in 2014, while Weaver garnered second-team preseason accolades. Stewart was also recognized for his work in the classroom this past year, earning Capital One Academic All-America accolades. The 2014 Academic All-America Division I Baseball team was announced on Friday and selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America. Stewart was named to the third team. Teammate Gage Smith garnered second-team honors. It marked just the second time in school history, and first since 1970, that multiple Seminoles were named Academic AllAmericans in the same year. In 1970, Florida State was recognized with three honorees, including Greg Gromek (SS, first team), Carl Gromek (P, first team) and Dick Nichols (INF, second team). Smith and Stewart become the 10th and 11th Seminole baseball players to earn this honor and the first since James Ramsey was honored in back-to-back seasons in 2011 and 2012. Florida State was one of four schools in 2014 to place two student-athletes on the Division I Academic All-America team, joining Mercer, Southeast Missouri and Canisius. An ACC Academic Honor Roll honoree, Stewart is a two-time member of FSU's dean's list. He is currently pursuing his bachelor's degree in sport management. Fifth-ranked Florida State (43-17) saw its season come to an end Saturday afternoon as the Seminoles fell to Alabama (35-23) 6-5 in an elimination game of the 2014 Tallahassee Regional on Mike Martin Field inside Dick Howser Stadium. The Seminoles refused to go down without a fight, putting together a ninth inning rally but in the end came up a run short as Florida State dropped the first two games of an NCAA r egional for the first time since 1984 when FSU fell to Stetson and East Carolina. Stewart kept the ninth inning alive with a two-run single to center to cut Florida State's deficit to 6-5. He finished the game with two hits and two RBI. Florida State, which dropped its opening game to Georgia Southern 7-0 Friday night, ended the season with 40 wins for the 37th year in a row, while clinching the ACC Atlantic Division title for the eighth consecutive year. Friday's loss to Georgia Southern snapped FSU's 19-game winning streak in regional play as it marked the Seminoles first set back in the NCAA regionals since falling to Bucknell, 7-0, in the opening game of the 2008 T allahassee Regional. The shutout on Friday night was just the second time the Seminoles were held without a run this year. Stewart led off the bottom of the seventh inning Friday with an infield single, becoming FSU first base runner to reach since the second inning. Visit www.seminoles.com.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK FWC kids clinic Saturday at Fort ClinchAr ecord number of kids participated in Saturday's annual Florida Wildlife Commission Kid's Fishing Clinic, which was held at the Fort Clinch State Park and fishing pier. "I believe there were over 400 kids that showed up for the fishing clinic," Nassau Sport Fishing Association President John Hartrich said. "Fortunately, the rain held off and we were able to host the event, which is put on by the Florida Wildlife Commission. "Each year the event continues to grow and we have to add on more staff. Our fishing club members were a huge help in making the event a success for the kids." NSFA members on hand included Hartrich, Mike Gastner, Ralph Morgan, Ed Holmberg and Ralph Morgan. Morgan has participated in all 17 youth clinics. Also you have to give a big hand to the parents, relatives and friends that took time off this past weekend to bring the kids to the fishing clinic. Fort Clinch staff was also on hand to ensure the clinic was a big success. Visitors to the event had a free pass into the Fort Clinch Park. The local Kiwanis Club did a great job in helping set up and serving hot dogs, chips and soft drinks for all of the children and guests. A special thanks to Kiwanis Club regular volunteers Lou Goldman and Steve Heller. A special thanks to Rick Scott and Song Keating, who helped assemble the fishing r ods and reels and were there to assist in many ways. The big kids event began at 9 a.m. and groups of 10 junior aglers were sent to various learning stations for 15minute time periods. Learning stations included knot tying, "Good Angler," fishing tackle and "Leave No T race." After the kids attended each of the four learning stations, they were given a new fishing rod, reel and fresh bait shrimp. Kids and their parents then walked out onto the Fort Clinch fishing pier and spent the rest of the morning doing what most kids enjoy most, fishing. After a few hours of fishing on the pier, youths were then treated to hot dogs, chips and soda, which were provided by the Kiwanis Club and served by members Goldman and Heller.

Many of these kids will take their new fishing rod and r eel and put them to use while fishing in the many ponds, rivers, bays and lakes that provide Northeast Florida outdoorsmen with such a wonderful variety of fishing waters. Obviously some of the kids will become avid fishermen while a few of the kids may never pick up a rod and r eel again. In any case, teaching kids to fish and, more importantly, to enjoy the art of fishing, is a great tool in ensuring a better future for our children. Many thanks from our kids for the hard work that was accomplished by the Florida Wildlife Commission, Fort Clinch, the Kiwanis Club, the Nassau Sport Fishing Association and all those volunteers that made last Saturday's clinic a huge success. Local sport fishing boats are now trolling lures, dead baits and live baits offshore while catching a variety of trolling species, including kingfish, cobia, amberjack. Capt. Terry D. Lacoss guided a fishing party Saturday to five kingfish and a cobia while trolling live menhaden both down deep and on the surface at FA live bottom. Capt. Allen Mills also had a great day guiding his party to cobia, barracuda and kingfish Saturday while fishing at FC live bottom. Capt. Kenny Crawford guided a local fishing party to an excellent catch of kingfish at HH live bottom recently. Capt. Danny Flynn and Capt.

CYAN MAGENTA YELLOW BLACK P AGE 4B W EDNESDAY J UNE 4, 2014 N EWS -L EADER / F ERNANDINA B EACH FL Sicily and the ultimate Mediterranean Diet Returning from a trip to a country where eating habits are very different offers some interesting observations. Usually when we travel there is an inevitable weight gain. Too much food and probably not the b est food and no exercise usually results in an unwanted souvenir p ounds! After more than three weeks away in Sicily and now home, I nervously stepped on the bathroom scale. I enjoyed more than my share of Italys sinful gelato and enjoyed the islands light and f lavorful wines. Lunch and dinner often involved hours grazing on b eautifully prepared fresh, healthy food. Scales dont lie. To my surprise, I actually lost weight. As someone pointed out, I enjoyed the ultimate M editerranean Diet. Thinking b ack over the many delicious meals enjoyed over nearlya month in Sicily, I recalled that there was little meat, a great variety of f resh fruits and vegetables and a c ulture that walks, rides their bicycles and is never hurried through a meal. You do not see obese people. Instead of a breakfast bar of packaged cereals, donuts, frozen orange juice and coffee offered to travelers in this country, each morning we h ad a variety of freshly baked pastries, fruits, vegetables and meats, w ith freshly squeezed juices and delicious dark coffee. Each breakfast was a photo opportunity. Beautifully displayed and tempting. Yes, a good long walk was scheduled each day. We were refreshed by water, never a sugared soft drink. W hen it was time for lunch we would either enjoy a picnic of local c heeses, fruits and some sweets or enjoy a lengthy luncheon with many courses that were savored and digested slowly and not on the run. Dinner was always more than a meal. It was about entertainment and friendship. Beautifully set tables with the silver and glassware to a ccommodate the many coursed meal. More often than not the chef a nd/or owner came out to make sure everyone was enjoying their meal. We always were. The original Mediterranean Diet includes lots of olive oil, fish, cheese, milk, yogurt, moderate consumption of meat, beans and legumes, three o r four eggs a week and my favorite wine especially red. Snacks i nclude nuts, another diet basic. For example, residents of Greece average six or more servings a day of antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables. Research shows that this healthy diet offers a reduced risk of death from heart disease and cancer and a reduced incidence of P arkinsons and Alzheimers diseases. N ow I am home and determined to continue healthy eating. It is the right time of year with wonderful fresh fruits and vegetables available. My adventure trip has reminded me how important healthy eating is!

Amelia Islands Golden Years, Silver Tears, is the second in the N ortheast Florida trilogy s et in the late 1880s, with the third due out next spring by author Maggie Carter-de Vries.

He returns to Amelia Island to carry on life as usual with his beautiful young bride, Katie, expecting their first child, only to find life for her to be a daily trial by jury of her peers: an impossible situation in the end.

Based on archaeol ogical discoveries, historical documents and other eviden-c e, the site is believed to be the foundation of a church b uilt by Governor Pablo de Hita y Salazar in 1677, to serve Mission Nombre de Dios and the Shrine of Nuestra Seora de la Leche. Governor de Hita w as a soldier and the governor of Florida from 1674-1680. T he excavations have uncovered the exterior wall f oundations of the church, as well as interior partition walls. Artifacts recovered include items such as coquina, tabby, mortar and nails, as well as N ative American and Spanish pottery dating from the late1 600s to the early 1700s.
