Officials gathered near the Amelia River on Tuesday
afternoon to celebrate the renovation of the First Coast
Railroad Swing Bridge, billed as a "lifeline" to industry and
commerce in Nassau County.
Sitting in the shadow of the Shave Bridge, the swing
bridge pivots at its center to run parallel with the waterway
to allow passage for marine traffic. It provides -h.:l lri- .....ce
of rail access to Amelia Island and the port and mills here.
Demonstrated on Tuesday, the shift from bridge to passage

a minute.
"It's important to recognize the value of the renovation of
the bridge,.how important it is, because it is the lifeline of com-
merce to Nassau County specifically to Amelia Island, to our
major industries, and to our mills here," said Nassau County
Commission Chair Danny Leeper.
About $1.82 million in public and private funding paid for
the project, a joint effort by the Florida Strategic Intermodal
System and First Coast Railroad. Roughly $1.63 million of the
state's investment came from the Florida Department of
Transportation, FDOT District 2 Secretary Greg Evans said.

stages, a parking lot owned by the Port
of Fernandina may one day be open for
use by St. Michael Catholic Church
on Sunday, and for employees and
visitors of the port and U.S. Customs
House during weekdays.
City commissioners and the Ocean
Highway and Port Authority met April

New path, fresh start'

for former Sutton Place

Sutton Place, which has been pro-
viding mental health and addiction
services in Nassau County since
1992, is now Starting Point
Behavioral Healthcare.
:: Dr. Laureen Pagel, CEO, announ-
ced the name change at ceremonies
held April 20 at the Yulee campus.
"We chose the name Starting
Point to reflect the new path and
fresh start that we represent to our
clients;" said Pagel. "As a behavioral
health provider, we play an impor-
tant role -in the overall ,.:Ill,., I.
system. Our services help people
make significant changes to improve
il,,i- mental and physical health."
The new tagline, "Healing Begins

Here," sums up this approach, as evi-
denced in remarks by board chairs
Cherie Billings, in which she said,
"Starting Point is a place of healing
where individuals can begin a new
chapter in their lives. We are immen-
sely proud of the work done here by
the professionals at Starting Point."
In his ii',, ..i.i.i, board member
the Rev. Jim Tippins called for a
moment of silence for all "who grieve
this day, who f.'.n I hi. i, who strug-
gle this day." He described a callig-
raphy on hope in his office and called
Starting Point a place of hope. IHe
said that God created us with hope
woven into our spirits, .and prayed
He would grant hope and peace inl
and iiu ,nIl, those assembletl.
Judge Brian Davis noted that
many social scientists believe that

the root of all criminal conduct is
mental illness.
"The judiciary's role in (he com-
munity is to protect the public," he
said, pointing out the value of the
mental ill 11 courts created so that
people who are truly dangerous and
intend to harm us can be held, and
those who are sick and who have
engaged in maladaptive behavior can
be helped.
Davis concluded his remarks by
saying, "I want to take the opportu-
nity to thank the board for their con-
tribution to the community in this
wonderful andl highly ( f1i.0.i',_ means
of keeping not only all of us safe, butt

It's amazing the truisims I discover when
my geriatric insomnia wakes me at 3 a.m. ()ne
second I am all snuggled down in my favorite
nightie and the next thing I know, I am wide
awake, usually in mid-rant about something
Terribly important.
Thank goodness that rant so far, anyway -
hasn't featured me addressing the United
'Nations while I'm nekkdd. (I must digress for a
moment to tell you that Lewis Grizzard, my all-
time favorite newspaper columnist, defined
,"naked" as being devoid of clothes. "Nekkid,"
'on the other hand, means that someone is
, completely undressed and up to no good as in,
"Come on in! We're all nekldd!")
An even more interesting thing about my
' 'addressing august bodies while I am with or
-'without clothing is the profound content of the
speeches I deliver. I venture to say that it has
:',taken my subconscious years to discover these
- profundities. I'll give you an example:
It's finally time for me to take back all those
'nhaps I turned down when I was younger.
''Actually, I think I am already doing just that.

Even I know how to find my

One night I awoke to find
myself in a heated debate with several very
slim and trim people. Those of us on the oppo-
site side of the debate were all of a certain size,
maybe even a little larger. The topic was how
one determines that fine line between bore-
dom and hunger. It was obvious even to the
most obtuse observer which philosophy
each side had embraced. My team stood a
little closer to the refrigerator, and most of us
were talking with our mouths full. Yikes!
I suddenly realized that I was fully awake
and starving to death hours before I could

re just so p
legally have breakfast.
And give this one some thought: The freez-
er compartments in our refrigerators deserve
their very own lights. We would benefit, too,
from being able to see what's lurking in the
dark nether regions of those cubbyholes. I'm
surprised there haven't been demonstrations
in the streets demanding equal lights.
One night I awoke in the middle of a heated
debate about how many times you are sup-
posed to say "What?" before you just nod and
smile because you can't hear or understand
someone. My personal rule is three "What?"s,
but I must admit that life can take an interest-
ing turn after that third "What?" I have discov-

word for it peanut butter is not a tasty condi-
ment for a tuna salad sandwich.
An interesting adjunct to this nod and smile
approach occurs when your server mumbles
an either/or question. Red or white? Hot or
mild? Broiled or fried? The saving grace of all
of this verbal fumbling about is that your serv-
er will mumble louder and louder until you
finally decipher a syllable or two of the original
question. And trust me, if you don't decipher

A man who looked suspiciously like
Ambassador Bolton was at the podium when I
awoke one morning last week. He was careful-
ly explaining that bad decisions make good
stories. I was reminded of all those sea stories
I listened to from my navy friends. Some of
them were quite outrageous and make me
smile to this day. Unfortunately, the ambassa-
dor disappeared in a puff of smoke when I
opined that I'd been taught that bad decisions
are where good judgment comes from.
Remember how surprised we all were when
we discovered the youthful hijinks of our wise
old relatives? How do ya think they became old
and wise?
Either way, we all have a million stories to
tell about our escapades, youthful indiscretions
and close encounters, some of which may have
even occurred when we were nekkid.

to the Florida Department of

Based on a National Park
Service study Amelia Island
should rank near the bottom in
terms of impact from climate
change including factors such
as hurricanes, storm surges
and rising sea levels since the
park people rank Cumberland
Island that low and to para-
phrase Saturday Night Live's
Tina Fey while mocking Sarah
Palin "I can see Cumberland
Island from my house," so I am
assuming that what's good for
Cumber-land is good.for Amelia
and what's bad for it is bad for'
us. The study goes on to say
that 95 percent of the
Cumberland coastline would be
vulnerable to a storm surge if
the island took a hit from a
whopping Category 5 storm.
While I do believe in climate
change I don't believe it is man-
made, and I also believe if a
hurricane is headed for this
area, I'll follow all evacuation
warnings an(d you'll have to
race me off the island and I
won't be headed up 1-95, but
across state on 1-10.

FRIDAY, APRIL 26, 2013 OPINION News-Leader


Yes to the RV park
The RV park proposal by Bob Allison if per-
mitted will be an asset to tourism on Amelia
Island. I have known Bob for over 10 years and
lived on Amelia Island since 1999. His letter in a
recent issue of the News-Leader ("Straight talk
about proposed RV resort," April 17) was an
honest description of his past work and hopes for
the park. He will do a great job and manage it
The type of folks and their RV's coming to his
park are not going to be the rowdy Georgia-
Florida crowd you see camping around the Gator
Bowl. It provides an alternative to Fort Clinch
State Park, which is the only other option for an
RV now. Think of the RV park as a marina for
land yachts.
Tourism is critical to our local economy, and
there is no reason to limit the ability of people that
travel in these large motor homes to stay here on
Amelia Island. I hope the right site is found and
the RV park becomes a reality.
Peter Mallory
Fernandina Beach

No to the RV park
In regard to Mr. (Bob) Allison's "Straight talk
about proposed RV resort" (April 17), certainly
one must consider and respect all viewpoints
and proposals, but my response focuses on the
uniqueness and beauty of Amelia Island.
I am always struck by the meaning of the
word "dash" and what a powerful indicator it is.
We inscribe on markers date of birth, date of
death and there is a "dash" in between. That
dash is what we do with our lives. I think with all
heated emotions of this proposed RV resort one
-needs to focus on that dash.
Amelia Island was discovered with a date,
and now we are entrusted with the "dash" to
foster and care for an unbelievable piece of prop-
:erty. Let us not hasten the final entry date with
land development that cannot be restored. Sitting
:on the lanai that faces toward these proposed
properties one can hear wind through the tall
-pines, see butterflies, birds of all types, watch
-nesting owls raise their families and take in the
beauty and colors of native flora and fauna. I
understand development, but at what cost. This
cost is too high and the residents of Amelia
Island/Fernandina Beach deserve better.
I would caution using the term "set of facts"
'-as Mr. Allison has done in his latest comments.
Facts need to be referenced accurately, pub-
lished and validated. I will use the term "issue"
for counterpoint of view:
Issue 1: Why state an RV resort is a must-have
'addition? I think of a must-have to be necessary
to sustain life, i.e., oxygen/water/food.
issue 2: Show us the documentation to sup-
:port Fact 2.
Issue 3: Uniformed staff OK, what does
"that really prove? How can one state that the
resort will "accommodate mostly retired per-
sons and seniors so our recreational amenities
.will be mostly low impact." As a member of the
aging baby boomer generation I really do not
,know anyone who would focus on horseshoes,
:croquet and shuffleboai d. "Low Imniact could-
incorporate music N1..un concert~,' -rtl-.. s.
clubhouse, group gatlt-i ving-, pool, elk. Using the
word "luxury" can be misleading. Fourth of July
fireworks can they be used on "county" side of

development with less restriction than city -
interesting to consider!
Issue 4: Most RV resorts quiet enough to
hear a pin drop maybe, a bowling pin.
This projected RV resort will incorporate all
types of RVs (yes, we know about Class A's) so
as not to discriminate from all recreational vehi-
cles/types usage. To accommodate size of Class
A's, most RV resorts construct sites designated
"pull through" which require more room to nav-
igate the RV. Any towed vehicle such as car,
boat, motorcycle, bicycle, (other toys), require
areas for those items to be parked and used. RV
pullout slide(s) need clearance, requiring even
additional open spaces.
The other major issue of #4 is that owners stay
inside their coaches doing activities of daily liv-
ing. Does one really think this will happen! Why
then are they coming to the island? With the
newer models of RV's one sees a focus on outside
activities. Large TV screens, sound systems,

outdoor entertainment areas) frequently are

Issue 5: Never any generator noise please
do not state this. What if a power outage on
island occurs? Please address issue of "dump
station" that will be required. Self-containment
systems for any RV have to be dealt with what
goes in must come out.
Issue 6: Thank you for your past develop-
ments, but past history does not guarantee right
to proceed. Noise and air pollution from a high-
density RV resort that fluctuates is a reality.
Some of these RV resorts may offer (even though
not in the initial stage) option to purchase a site
for permanent residence.
Issue 7: "An entire class of tourists denied
access." Did not realize that the bridge and roads
were closed to the island!
Issue 8: As many as 50 new jobs. Sounds like
a lot of work needed to maintain a "large project."
Issue 9: City and county budgets, will they
share equally in these profits? I think revisiting
the issues of complexity of having a single ven-
ture placed on city-county sites may be more
burdensome than realized. Who responds to
emergency calls -: one RV or campsite is locat-
ed on county site, but simultaneously that emer-
gency call requires response and action to a site
adjacent, but it is located on city site? Just a
Issue 10 Maybe rename Amelia Island
Parkway to Amelia Island Trafficway to reflect
potential usage. Is this truly what defines a "small
low-density family owned RV resort" as stated.
Amelia Island-Ferhandina Beach has flown
under Eight Flags. Please do not let the Ninth
Flag or banner be flown near the "largest foun-
tain" RV resort it threatens the serenity and
beauty of such a special island in our country.
There may be a need for this type of develop-
meat, but let it occur off island. Our hospitality
will remain open in so many other ways, sustain
the economy and maintain healthy growth for
generations well past our lifetime.

Regarding the location of an RV park, in my
opinion it will be best located between Amelia
Island and Yulee, not on the island.
Most of the "facts" brought forth by Mr.

Allison in his Viewpoint ("Straight talk about
proposed RV resort," April 17) are really just
his opinion.
True, there is not an RV resort on Amelia
Island, but Fort Clinch State Park has 61 camp-
sites, many accommodating RVs up to 40 feet,
with water and power. Of course, those million-
dollar buses he envisions as his patrons won't fit
there. I will have to concede that point. But then
do we want million-dollar buses driving all over
the island?
It is hard to'accept his assertion that own-
ers of the large RVs he wants to attract will
go to his "resort" and spend their time piddling
about and not leave to explore the island, go to
a restaurant, visit the aforementioned Fort
Clinch, etc. If they didn't want to enjoy the island,
why would they come here in the first place?
Many will be towing cars, which will work out
well because, practically, the only way they can
see the island is by car. So if they are going to use
a car, why can't they drive in from between the
island and Yulee and keep the RV traffic off the
It is an old argument that this or that real
estate development is needed to increase the
tax base and help those "strained" government
budgets. I ask the question: if all the hotels and
motels and strip.1malls and condos and various
other things built on the island the last 40 years
haven't solved the budget problems, how is one
RV "resort" going to do it?
Find me a government anywhere that isn't
always in need of more money. This is one con-
stant of the human.condition: Government is
one-third waste, one-third graft and one-third
result. More tax money won't change that.
. I think the traffic on the island is bad enough
as it is. Put the RV resort between Yulee and the
island, and keep those huge RVs where they
have room to rlanquver. They will not be driven
by pti.,ii -', >iia drii i .

Re: "Straiglht talk about proposed RV resort"
(April 17).
Mr, Allison's RV resort website is replete
with promises, intentions and admonition of
those opposing.his plan for an RV resort. I say
RV resort.because Allison, again, "promises" a
Class Ai resort but places no legal restriction on
expanding to other classes of RV and campers
under adverse circumstances. There are many
stories on he .. -b about the starting and ending
story of such enterprises. The overwhelming
fact i ia:,i RV Gliss A resorts are heavily depend-
ent on the economy and have a checkered his-
tory of expanding their definition of Class A
vehicles during tough economic times. In near-
ly every case these parks started with grand
promises, big deals with the local municipali-
ties (including tax breaks, shared revenues and
expanded utilities) and grandiose visions of park
like property improvements.
Mr. Allison suggests that there is little or no
difference between an RV resort and a quiet
residential community; the notable difference
being the positive economic impact from the
transient consumer traffic of an RV resort versus
low return from residentsof a quiet residential
community. yet'ss set; Isl, de Mai community: 30
year mortgages, guaranteed tax base to city and
county, 12 months consumption of retail servic-
es versus transient and unpredictable con-

sumption by RV travelers. If one is to believe that
density is essentially the same between a quiet
community and a Class A resort, Mr. Allison
needs to rethink his argument.
Several "facts" presented by Mr. Allison
deserve special attention:
Fact 1: "There is no RV resort on Amelia
Island!" Surely you have visited Fort Clinch State
Park. There are wonderful resources at this loca-
tion and there is ample room for expansion of RV
resources. I am sure the state is aware of the
opportunity for tourism at their site and has bet-
ter data than you on when to expand and increase
the number of RV lots. More importantly, the RV
locations are not next to any residential corn:
munities and appropriately positioned with
nature. Are you suggesting that your proposed
amenity has more appeal than one of the high-
est rated state parks in the cquntr y? At least tell
it like it really is!
Fact 4: "Best location is along Amelia
Parkway." If that is so true why were your pre-
vious two attempts to ramrod a deal thwarted by
local residents, businesses and the FAA? The
answer is location, location and location. Mr.
Allison, why don't you park yourself at the inter-
section of SR 200 and Amelia Parkway at rush
hour? Even during off season the traffic is
bumper to bumper, not to mention the logging
trucks. Ask any resident of Amelia Island com-
munities (why not ask residents in some of your
past endeavors on Amelia Island? Ask them how
they feel about an RV park adjacent to their comz
munity?) You know the answer to that, don't
you! Incidentally, please, "Most RV Parks are
so quiet, you can hear a pin drop!"
Fact 5: "RV overnight stays put little or no
demand on municipal infrastructure." Does that
mean you plan to perk the land for dumping
sites for human waste? If so, I have plenty of
stories to tell about the lines at the dump location
at checkout time, and the alternative people
resort to in order to shorten their wait. If you plan
to put sewer, water-and electrical connection at
each RV slot then that is another-story. By the
way, I don't see that statement in your develop-
ment plan? Regarding security, do you plan to
erect a security fence for all areas adjoining res-
idential communities and position security per-
sonnel and/or security cameras for same areas?
I don't see that in you plan either.
Fact 9: "The RV park will bring relief to city
and county budgets." What planet were you born
on? Since when do increased tax revenues ease
the pain of increasing sales, property and com-
mercial taxes. Politicians view increased taxes as
an opportunity to spend more. Your RV park
will not put a dent in the city and county tax
pressure. Incidentally, have you petitioned to'
city to give you a special tax break for this ven-
ture? It is often a developer's technique to puff
up their contribution in return for a big tax break.
As experienced and successful as you are, I
would expect you to pursue this avenue as well.
I, for one, didn't retire to Amelia Island to
deal with an RV resort over the hill and though
the woods. I was around such ventures. I am
not confused, nor artificially hyped by grandiose
developer plans, promises of fountains and flow-
ers and reduced taxes.
Best regards to you'and yotir'enhi tu. JiW

Make the city face the music

If we keep our fingers crossed and, as my
mama used to say, hold our mouths just right,
the horsepuckery over street musicians and
artists could end on a pleasant note. Recall
that several weeks ago the Fernandina Beach
City Commission, advised by City Attorney
Tammi Bach, unanimously approved the first
reading of an ordinance to ban artists and
musicians from a 12-block area of downtown,
including the pocket parks. In other words, all
of downtown.
The whole thing seems to stem from a per-
son or persons being miffed about someone
who, as Vice Mayor Charlie Corbett told me,
seemed to be doing as much panhandling as
But a joyful chorus for Charlie Corbett,
folks. He has heard the low bass rumblings
from the community and has taken note of it.
The commish told me that he's having second
thoughts about it. He hopes his colleagues
are,. too. A pragmatic and thinking pol,
Corbett thinks the city is about to hit a very
sour note and, in his words, "open a big can of
Being sued is high on Corbett's list of con-
cerns for the city, a potential constitutional
challenge in federal court that could and prob-
ably would cost the cash-strapped city a boat-
load of dough. And, not without precedent,
Enter Stephen Baird, head of an organiza-.
tion called Street Arts and Buskers Advocates,
a Massachusetts-based group that, like its
name implies, acts as a watchdog and commu-
nity arts advocate. I spoke with Baird, too,
who chuckled and said the city could be about
to become actors in a play with a very bad final

act. .I ....I art and
performers have cultural
and historical significance in
this country. Renowned
artists like Jimmy Buffett,
Jerry Jeff Walker and
Frank Sinatra got their start
Son street corners. But
,j buskers in the US of A can
trace their ancestry back to
CUP OF such luminaries as Ben
JOE Franklin, Sanm Adams and
.... even Patrick Henry, who
played a mean fiddle on the
Joe Palmer streets during the Quarter
court sessions. New
Orleans is famous for its street artists and
musicians, none of which are relegated to the
fringes of the city, as the-proposed new law
would do.
Baird said the U.S. courts, all the way up to
the Supreme Court, 'have upheld again and -
again the right of citizens to gather and peace-
fully demonstrate and perform in public parks
and on public sidewalks. A case in St.
Augustine several years ago barred artists
from a four-block area of St. George Street.
The case has been back and forth in the
courts, all the way up to the Ninth Circuit U.S.
District Court of Appeal in Atlanta. In the
meantime, it made tourist-dependant St.
Augustine look like one of the unfriendliest
towns in America, generating tons of bad
press and ill will. Baird told me even conserva-
tive judges often take a libertarian view of
First Amendment free speech issues and hew
to the notion that almost any infringement is
too much.

In fact, one such street artist tells me about
being approached by someone from the
American Civil Liberties Union about this. The
artist doesn't want to sue but the ACLU has
obviously taken note.
Corbett doesn't want to belly flop and he's
hoping his colleagues are hearing the same
rumbles he is. He wishes the whole affair
would just quietly disappear than risk the
embarrassment to the city that resulted when
they tried to oust local icon-Felix Jones from
downtown several years ago. A hostile crowd
packed City Hall and the pols backed down. In
fact, Corbett told me some people he's talked
to worry that this thing would affect Felix, too.
A scary thought, that.
The current ordinance allows for
playing in the pocket parks but not on side-
walks. Corbett says he hopes things just stay
the way they are and don't get any messier.
But Baird says even that is dangerous ground
because courts have frequently ruled that
even that is too restrictive. The imposing of
$300 fees and requirements of carrying
$300,000 liability insurance is ludicrous. Do
people with concealed carry permits have to
carry liability insurance? Do people walking
their dogs? Of course not. Neither should

I am the chairman of fh' Fernan-
dina Beach Golf Course Advisory
Board and I am writing in'riesponse'tq
the article "City commissioners split
on golf course oversight" in the April
19 News-Leader. "
I usually play golf weekly at the
Ferriandina Beach golf course and
remember playing the week prior to
Thanksgiving 2012. At the time I felt
the course was a 7 out of 10 in terms
of conditions. Due to a broken foot, I
was unable to play for eight weeks. I
played the first week of February and
was very concerned about the condi-
tion of the course and how it seemed
to have deteriorated over the past few
months. Due to golf club members'
outrage, Billy Casper Golf Manage-
ment (golf course manager) called a
town hall meeting to address the mem-
bers'concerns. Our Fernandina Beach
Golf Advisory Board met the next
week .ad as m mme tqmeetwit th e
4ty19a e'90 itWtB)y,C>sp', o^ -
Management on notice and to let them
know their contract was in jeopardy of
being cancelled if they did not reme-
dy the situation. In addition, the board
recommended we select a third party
to do an evaluation of the turf and the
course conditions.
I met with the city manager on
Friday prior to the next city commis-
sion meeting and stated the concerns
and actions our board had suggested.
One -of our board members, Jim
Powers, also contacted our city man-
ager with contact information for a
USGA golf course inspector. I was
unable to attend the commission meet-
ing the following Tuesday night but
Jim was in attendance. The city man-
ager asked the commission for per-
mission to send a letter of'warning to
Casper and stated he had sought out
the USGA turf inspector to do an
inspection. That evening, Commis-
sioner (Charles) Corbett stated he
wanted to form his own committee to
evaluate the golf course. Commission-
er (Ed) Boner asked if it was to
exclude the Fernandina. Beach Golf
Club and Mr. Corbett said he defi-
nitely did not want to include the cur-
rent advisory committee. During the
commissioners' discussion, the city
manager was afforded multiple oppor-
tunities to explain our advisory board's
involvement and the decision to put
Casper on notice. After the meeting we
contacted Mr. Gerrity and asked why
he remained silent during these dis-
cussions? He stated, "If you are look-
ihg for credit I'm sorry; I'm just happy
the process has started."
We are not looking for credit but
expected to be credited for the work
we have done and have been doing
for years for the commission, espe-
cially in light of Mr. Corbett's open
criticism of our board. Our advisory
group is a board of volunteers appoint-
ed by the commission with the over-
Oight of the city manager.
The following week I along with
the help of board member Bruce
Smyk put together a presentation
showing the conditions of the course
"from March 5 to April 15. 1 shared'
this with the commissions showing
improvements that had been made
and the improvements that were slat-
ed to be made to bring the course
back to acceptable conditions. I left

the meeting after the presentation and
was not in attendance when Mr.
Corbett's appointment of a new golf
course committee came up for dis-
cussion. Commissioner Corbett stated
"he had never heard from our board in
the 14 months he has served." I
thought I just made a presentation.
Did Mr. Corbett forget board mem-
ber Jim Powers spoke at the last com-
mission meeting? I attended and spoke
at the two prior commission meetings
and have spoken at multiple meetings
throughout my term as advisory board
chairman. So why the selective mem-
At the end of the discussion, Mayor
(Sarah) Pelican quoted that one of our
board members told her at a Rotary
Club meeting,, The course is in the
best shape it has ever been." Perhaps
the statement was made six months
ago when the course was in good
shape and I would ask whom on the
board made this statement? It seems
obvious to me that a few commis-
sioners want to discredit the work the
gqlt 0.qursadyv.sQry,boprd ha, been
doing for the city. To what end, we
will find out soon. We as a board will
continue to meet with Casper and con-
tinue to report golf course conditions
and updates of projects to the com-
mission whether welcome or not.

Preserving St Michael
In 1972, the Keystone Hotel, which
had housed the spring training
Baltimore Orioles and numerous
wealthy visitors to Fernandina, was
unceremoniously torn down. The
town's residents were outraged and
responded by creating the Historic
District Council. In the 40 years since,
the HDC has had a remarkable record
of preserving Fernandina's structural
history. That is all about to change.
St. Michael Catholic Church was
built in 1872, making it among the old-
est still-standing structures in the
town. With its simple elegance, the
church has since served as a spiritu-
al home to countless residents and
Now it is in danger. A growing
Catholic community means that the
little church's 289 seats are no longer
adequate to serve the population. But
it's not as if we didn't see it coming.
Over the past 20 years, the church
has pu1clihai.(d land in Yulee and.
O'Ncil, land that was intended to be
used for the construction of a second
Catholic Church:
Now, however, some of the parish-
ioners have decided that doubling the
size of the present church would be
preferable over building a new church.
The church's Parish Council says it
conducted a random survey of parish-
ioners, 60 percent of whom said they
would prefer to keep attending the
current church rather than go "off
island" to a second church.
The church is using this informa-
tion to justify its plans to expand the
current building, despite the fact that
the survey was not professionally
undertaken, and hi I. d' ., not appear
to be a question about whether those
same parishioners would trade the
destruction of the current building's
historical character for the conven-
ience of location.

Additionally, a member of the HDC
has been hired as the architect on the
$1.4-1.6 million expansion of the pres-
ent structure. He has recused himself
from votes on the issue; however,
many of those who oppose the expan-
sion are understandably skeptical. The
church has received numerous vari-
ances to allow for the anticipated con-
Aside from the historical reserva-
tions, expanding St. Michael is prob-
lematic from a practical standpoint.
The current church has no dedicated
parking, forcing churchgoers to park
along Fourth, Broome and Calhoun
streets. Doubling the number of cars
will threaten the tenuous detente that
currently exists between parishioners
and homeowners in the area.
But the larger issue remains.'Those
who want to destroy the church's
architecturally historical integrity are
being shortsighted. At some point,
the expansion will not be enough to
accommodate a growing church.
Another church will have to be built,
likely off the island.
Spending this money now means
that the pro-expansion crowd will have
accomplished two things: it will have
destroyed the historical nature of one
'of the island's prettiest and oldest
buildings and it will sap the financial
resources necessary to build another-
It is a bad decision.

International religious leader

For the News-Leader
D r. John Edmund Haggai has
been announced as the
keynote speaker for the
National Day of Prayer serv-
ice here on May 2. The local event will
be held Thursday, May 2 at 7 p.m. at
the First Baptist Church, Fernandina
Beach, 1600 S. Eighth St.
Haggai has been called a visionary,
a Christian world statesman, an evan-
gelist, and a master of the pulpit. A
visit to Asia in the early 1960s con-
vinced Haggai that changes in global
geopolitics, brought about by the end
of colonialism, required a new strate-

gy for world evangelism. In 19(69, after
years of research, prayer and develop-
ment, he presided over the firs(

designed to empower and mobilize
nationals to reach their own people forr

Institute has inspired and trained
thousands of Christian leaders work-
ing in almost all of the non-Western
countries to be able to establish
churches and proclaim the Good
News of Jesus Christ to their own peo-
ple. They multiply their effectiveness
significantly by passing on their train-
ing to an average of 100 other leaders.

room. Dressed to impress, 120 youth in
eighth to 12th grades filed in, resumes
in hand, for a chance to interview with
local executives. While there were few
"real" jobs available, the students, part
of Communities In School's Project
Future program, gained valuable real-
world experience.
The CIS Interview Challenge was the
culmination of an Interview Skills pro
gieam taught to the students by CIS
Executive Director Susan Milana.
,"Sometimes our teens can't identify,
their skills or positive traits, and nobody
, is telling them, 'You are special' so I
.spend a lot of time helping them focus
on their strengths so they can share
these in an interview," said Milana.
Executives from a variety of indus-
tries volunteered their time to provide
practice interviews, feedback, and
career information to the youth. Each
interviewee was scored based on their
answers to standard interview ques-
tions, and the top scoring candidates
were awarded medals. "I was very
-impressed at how prepared the kids
were," said Arthur Lynworth, author of
Slice The Salami: Tips for Life and
Leadership. "They interviewed better
than many adults."
"I am really looking for a job, "said

Winners of the Communities In Schools Interview Challenge included,
front row, Madeline Ryan, Julia Bright, Alayna Shank, Stephanie Weathing-
ton, Haley Nelson, Vicotria Cox and Brooke McAfee. Second row, Nicholas
Straud, Hannah Blakeman, Zachery Knight, Montgomery Bryant, Trenton
Legg and Jackson Young. Back row, Trey Pearson, Connor Hodges, Cody
Martin, Austin McCullough, Chelsey Woolsey and Nicole Johnson.

a lot!"
The students had an opportunity tor

of interest.
Organizations providing volunteer
interviewers for the day included:
RockTenn, Nassau County government,

Nassau County Sheriff's Office,
Okeefenokee Rural Electric
Management Corporation, Wells Fargo,
FNB South Bank, the Federal Aviation
Administration, Guardian Ad Litum,, the U.S. Army, Navy and Air

FRIDAY, APMi. 26,2013 NEWS News-Leader

Florida auto dealers:

Here's a snapshot view

In 1952, there were 46,0(X)
franchised dealers offering
ales and service throughout
|our country. Fast-forward 60
years and a much bigger pop-
pilation is relying on 17,540
dealers to handle their needs.
Welcome to our big-box
World, which has its advan-
4ages if you live in a metro

ed by big retail. Fortunately,
some of America's quaint
downtown areas are making
Comebacks. Unfortunately,
the closed car dealerships
aren't coming back.
Let's look at what has
evolved in Florida. Surfing/
stumbling around the web, I
found the National Auto Deal-
ers Association breakdown of
our Florida franchised dealer
body In 2012, the dealership
total stood at 853. My
thoughts are the 853 number,
is at most half of what it once
was. Your modern Florida
auto dealer averages $55.1
million in annual sales. They
employ 75 people, who aver-
age earning $53,556 a year.
The dealership sales are 16.9
percent of the retail sales in
our state and the payroll is
412.5 percent of the state retail
total. The average dealership
payroll is $3.99 million a year
and the total statewide payroll
is $3.4 billion. These are big
numbers and a reason why I
often say auto sales are such a
relevant barometer of our
economy. About one in six
state sales tax dollars are gen-
-erated with vehicle sales. The
6 percent sales tax we pay
here adds up. A state like
"South Carolina, where my
daughter now.lives, has a

closely when choosing the
"what" and "where" options
involved in a vehicle pur-
chase. Your Nassau County
car dealers have a vested
interest in finding a vehicle
that works for you. We will
see you at the grocery store,
church, restaurant or ball
field. My first suggestion is to
attempt to buy locally. When
factors dictate otherwise,
spend a little time-analyzing
where you make a purchase.
What type of warranty
service can you expect? Can
you wait or must the car be
dropped off? Is an appoint-
ment necessary? Is alternate
transportation available?
Simply have a feel for the
logistics of ownership after
the sale.
For two weeks, I have been
trying to get some convertible

specific data to share. It either
isn't there or I am not savvy
enough to find it. Hollie
thought it would make for a
good column. One simple
observation is that a convert-
ible buyer is a unique breed.
Just like a sailor and a power-
boater dance to different
music. Amelia Island would
have to be found on a top 10
list for places to own a con-
vertible. Great weather, few
potholes, low speeds and
beautiful vistas all add to the
mix. Drop your top and enjoy
the pre-summer days and
nights in your convertible.
,Don't own a convertible?
There is a cure nearby. Have a
good week.

'Rust on pines not good sign

Q. My home backs up to a
*large natural area and I
have seen a few of the small
pine trees with large areas of
an orange colored powder on
some of the trunks or stems.
It is such a bright orange
color that it reminds me of

a disease called Fusiform
rust, caused by the fungus
Cronartium quercuum. This
fungus is native to the south-

ease if very common in our
Many rusts require an
alternative host to complete
the life cycle and this one is
no exception. Part of itslife
cycle is spent on oak trees,
which is a requirement for
survival. It causes little or no
noticeable damage to the oak
tree but the second part of its
life cycle does cause damage
to pines. The fungal spores
are spread by wind from the
pine to the oak and back
again. Usually during the

Local artist grateful

for Shrimp Festival



Pottery artist Joe Winston
can sum up the art show at the
Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp
Festival in one word "great."
"I1get to meet local friends
and show them what I have
been doing all year. I enjoy meet-
ing visitors to the festival and
talking ab6ut my work. Artists
are all egoists when it comes to
our work, and all we want to do
is talk about our stuff and how
we do it," said Winston, who has
been honing his skills since.
Trained at the University of
the Arts in Philadelphia and the
Haystack Crafts School in
Maine, Winston also had an
apprenticeship with England's
Kenneth Quick in 1959.
Exhibiting at the Isle of Eight
Flags Shrimp Festival several
times over the years, Winston's
work can also be seen at the
Island Art Association Gallery
where he was'Artist of the
Month for March. Ever mind-
ful of the gift of life he received
when he got his new kidney,
Winston donated 20 percent of
his gallery earnings to the Katie
Caples Foundation to continue
their work of donor awareness.
Primarily a creator of mostly
large-scale sculptural ceramic
and clay art pieces, Winston also
paints, does printmaking, pho-
tography and makes art in other
The artist says the Shrimp
Festival has changed a good bit
since he moved here in 1994.
"It is more user friendly with'
bus transport to and from park-
ing and a visitor booth at the
entrance. The fun zone has.
become such a great thing and
there's improved waterfront
seating at the food booths."
Winston sees improvement
from the artists' perspective, too.
"The artwork is better each
year and the types of work has
changed. We see more jewelry
artists making application and
photography is becoming a
more accepted medium, but it
changes from year to year."
The prize money awarded to
the artists has helped to draw
t,.o ii ri.i to the art show and a

Local artists who are mem-
bers of the Island Art Associ-
ation perform the juried part of
the entry for the art show, and

parade up to the Saturday
before the festival weekend.
The new schedule has
allowed the festival to spread
out its special events. The
parade has turned into an,
event in itself and it was antici-
pated that parade spectators
and participants would stay
when the parade is over and
enjoy the island's lively down-
town, shop in the boutiques
and enjoy a variety of restatu-
rants. '
When Amelia Island has a
festival the island rocks and
the annual shrimp festival is
Mardi Gras in May. So who
marches in the parade? Better
question is who does not? You

name it and it is probably in
the parade. From toddlers
dressed as shrimp, dance
classes, school bands, Scout
groups, fire engines and mili-
tary marching groups.
Everybody loves the ever-pop-
ular Shriners and their crazy
cars. The finale, traditionally,
is the rowdy band of pirates
and their giant pirate ship.
Canons boom, the pirates raid
the streets giving out strings
of brightly colored beads.
One year, I got to be in the
parade! My iconic little yellow
bug was drafted for parade
duty. Washed and glistening
and full of gas, we joined the
chaotic scene at Central Park.

A second chance at life

For thewNews Leader
SAyoung boy was way smarter than his
'single mom, and he would not listen to
Tier. She held two jobs to make ends
Sfieet, so there was little parental guid-
ance He could do almost anything he
"*anted after school, that is, if he attend-
'ed. His good friends had to obey family
rules and hadcurfews. His other so-called
friends smoked and drank and cursed,
,but were always available, and they were
"cool." He spent more and more time
with them. One night his mother begged
'him to stay home. Frankly, she didn't
.like who he ran with. But when she went
into his room, he had snuck out of the
house. That was the last time he would
see her at home for 31 years.
It had only taken a few minutes to get
into trouble, big trouble. There had been
a fight, and a man was killed. It didn't
matter that Will hadn't pulled the trig-
ger. He and his three "buddies" went to
prison. Will was sentenced to life impris-
onment,;at age 16. He would spend all his
20's and 30's and most of his 40"s behind
bars. He had been making bad choices
throughout his teenage years, and that
night he made a whopper, and he paid for
it dearly.
How Will wished.he had listened to
his mom and grandma, to his coaches
'and teachers, and to all those who had

tried to m 'intor liii. HIe could have
played football and baseball, graduated
from high school, imaybc gone to col.
lege, married and had kids- bilt he gave
iup all this, and instead spent 31 years
incarcerated. I low many nights he laid on
his hard prison hun k crying, wishing
things had been different.
This is the story Will Bryant told last
weekend to students and parents at the
Miller Boys & Girls Club, to troubled
teenagers and parents at Camp
Consequence, to Little league baseball
players and to the congregation at Elm
Street'Church of God. They sat in rapt
silence as he weaved his story, and took
it all in. The' tears in the audiences, the
groundswell of kids who crowded around
him to question him after he spoke, all
suggested that he had made a big impact.
Maybe he actually saved some lives.
Fortunately, 19 years into his impris-
onment, Will experienced a pivotal
moment which changed his life. He icaime
into contact with Ken Jordan of the Kairos
Prison Ministry, and after I weekend ofl
deep discussion and prayers, Will accept-
ed Christ as his Lord and Savior, and his
life made a clear Iturn for lthe better. It
took-him 12 more years of good behavior,
and many legal briefs which lie filed him-
self, to be released, but in 2010 hlie walked
out, on ilarole, aI free man. He could enjoy
his mother's cooking once again, watch
ITV when hlie wanted, earn a good w''age

for a hard day's work, go to church as he
pleased, even rent a small apartment,
where he said, "I make the rules, not the
prison guards."
Will told about the clay he walked out
of prison. He was excited, of course, but
nervous too, because he had been out of
circulation for half a lifetime, and the
world had changed. He was not dressed
in his prison garb, but in street clothes
which his sister had brought to him.
When he was 50 yards out and'away from .
the secured gate, someone yelled to him
from the prison. Tempting as it was, he
did not look back. He knew his focus
was going to have to be forward, not
back, that he needed to build a new life
and leave the other one behind.
Will has been given a second chance
at life, and he is not wasting it. Around a
grueling daily work schedule, he attends
Bible studies and ushers at his church,
undertakes vocational training, and men-
tors soon-to-be released prisoners on re-
entering the civilian world. He tries to
be a good citizen in the community where
he lives. And he tells his story to groups
like ours in Nassau County and encour-
ages young boys and girls not to make
tile kind of dumb mistakes bhe. did,
because he is the living example that bad
friends and bad choices lead to horrible
consequences. Will plans to return this
fall to this area to speak to additional
youth programs, parents and churches.

Will Bryant held an audience of 120 youngsters and adults
spell. ,h.go april 12, and
again an-Aptil' 14 -eqreff prt'Chr Gfod. After 31
years in prison due to a teenaged crime, redemption came
through the Kafros Prison Ministry. He now devotes all his
spare time to trying to keep young people off his youthful

On the full moon day of April 25. there is a partial lunar eclipse, where the moon ever so slightly brushes into the shadow of
the Earth. This eclipse will not be visible from anywhere in the United States, billt most of Europe, Africa. Asia. Australia, and
Antarctica will be able to see it. A\t maximum eclipse, which occurs at 4:07 p.m. EDT, the moon will protrude into the Earth's
shadow by less than 1.5 percent of its diameter. The entire event lasts for only 27 minutes. This is a really bad year for lunar
eclipses, and I will have more to say about this situation when the most ephemeral of lunar eclipses bathes the eastern half of the
United States around midnight on May 24.1 an, calling it "(the eclipse that almost isn't." More importantly are two planets currently visible inll the sky.
one on the wane in the west, and the other emerging onto the scene in the southeast. both visible after evening twilight. Almost due west by 9 p.m. is
mighty Jupiter, about one fourth of the way up in thle sky, still "hanging tight" in Taurus the Bull. Jupiter has been inlTaurus sincemid May of 2012.
and for a good part of that time near its alpha star, AldelbiVan, the orange eye of the Bull. Currently, Jupiter resides directly above Aldebaran. To the
left and almost even with Jupiter is red supergiant Betelgeuse of Orion the Hmunter, and even farther left and just slightly lower than Jupiter is Sirius the
Dog Star, the brightest huninary of the night. Not quite as flashy will be Saturn, noticeable in the southeast by 10 p.m. Follow the arc of the Dipper s
handle, high in NE, to find Arcturus in Bootes the Bear Driver and then onward to blue white Spica of Virgo the Virgin. Saturn is to the left and below
Spica and about the same brightness as Spica. The moon provides help on April 24 when it is locatedjust over a degree from Spica. The following
evening, the moon moves to a positionjust four degrees from the ringed world.

Pariker Urban Band consists of
six-piece band with two female
vocalists. Their gospel roots are
clearly defined in their renditions
of classic cover tunes and they
trade off on harmonies and lead
vocals. Lead guitarist John
ParkerUrban started his first band
while in the Marine Corps.
Stationed everywhere from Japan
to Norway, John would play for his
fellow Marines, giving them a little
bit of home while stitiiini.-d
Since moving to Florida in
2003, John has quickly emerged
as one of the most talented guitar
players in the area. His ff,,irtk -
style of lead guitar tends to
remind one of Stevie Ray Vaughan
and Duane Allman. A songwriter
himself, John likes to add a new
twist on every composition he per-
forms. His unique ability to adapt.

and has opened for nationally tour-

ular music venues in the area.
Swamp Cabbage is led by front

boot-stomping, guitar-strumming
tunes that explore :,inat i s of the
soul and spirit, built upon a foun-
dation of jazz and folk.
Swamp Cabbage was formed in
2001 as a means of exploring
southern musical influences.
Parks, along with band mates Matt
Lindsey (bass) and Jagoda
(drums), has released three CDs:
Honk (2006), Squeal (2008) and
Drum Roll Please (2012). Born
and raised in Jacksonville at a time
when classical music was offered
in public schools, Parks began his
niti-,it carer i- t i.tTl in.e the viola in
the sixth through eighth grades.

After transitioning to the guitar, in
1973 he formed his first group,
The Parental Tears Band (an ode
to their parents' shared dread that
their offspring would pursue
music careers).
Weaving from a wide range of
influences (folk, blues, and rock)
the underlying theme in all of'
Parks' work is his dedication to
the songs and to the instruments
he plays; something that's palpa-
ble in every track.

Crawfish Fest this weekend

The Atlanta Rhythm Section headlines the Woodbine
Crawfish Festival this weekend. Fernandina's Beech
Street Blues Band is also part of the lineup.

The Woodbine Citizens Steering
Committee has plans well under way
for the 2013 Woodbine Crawfish
Festival. The group-is proud to
announce that Atlanta Rhythm Section
will be the headline entertainment
"Atlanta Rhythm Section will start at
5 p.m., but we encourage festival-goers
to come early to make sure they get
plenty of crawfish," said festival chair-
man Royce Proctor.
Where does The Atlanta Rhythm
Section (ARS) fit in the annals of rock
and roll? The group put out 15 albums
of excellent original material, and con-

sistently put on entertaining live shows
- both of which helped establish a
broad fan base.
They had some big hits and have
been a major player in the Southern
Rock scene. But that's not the whole
story and for those who've really got-
ten to know their music over the years,
there's a lot more to the story.
ARS was paired witlr-contempo-
raries Lynyrd Skynyrd as the succes-
sors to the Allman Brothers carrying
the mantle of "Southern Rock" in the

FRIDAY. APRIL 26,2013/News-Leader


Hand in hand, Christ and His church

As we stepped into the cool
water, our pace all but stopped. My
feel sore from wearing new sandals,
the shallow slough was as refresh-
ing as it gets. I grabbed my wife's
hand, sighed deeply, and took a
fresh breath of Amelia Island salt air.
There are few things I enjoy more
than holding my wife's hand and
walking. On this particular day,
when our feet hit the water and her
hand hit mine, it was as if I was
translated to another place; actually,
to several.
From the darker sands of
Indonesia, set with a backdrop of
Christian persecution and blood-
shed, to the swarming streets of
Mumbai India, from communist
Cuba, to war-torn Africa, to the frigid
Ukraine, to threatened Israel, to the
streets of Rome, my wife has placed

her hand in mine

her up onnt) h'ains6
~- in the middle of the
night not knowing
the language or
when it was our
turn to get off. I've
helped her up onto
PULPIT the backs of camels
NOTES and then back
down again.
Through dark
Pastor alleys in the night
Rob Goyette visiting families liv-
ing in condemned
buildings, to the steps of double-
decker buses in London, taking my
wife's hand in marriage has meant
more than either one of us imag-

By her hand, I've helped her in
and out of our boat, on to the dance
floor, over puddles in the street, and
on and on. And so it should be. The
reason from God's perspective
marriage is a picture of Christ's love
for His church, His bride. It's also a
picture of her love for Him.
When I think of the way my dear
wife has stood by my side through
thick and thin, I am humbled. She
has joyfully followed me into places
that many would refuse to go. Her
devotion and friendship has taught
me more about what God is looking
for in my life than anyone else I
know. Let me explain.
All throughout the Bible there is
a theme of Love. In order to make
that message practical for us, God
instituted marriage. From Adam and
Eve being the perfect counterparts

for each other, to Jesus performing
His first miracle at the wedding cele-
bration in Cana of Galilee, God's
love for marriage is far more signifi-
cant than many realize. I suppose
that's why the final chapters of the
Bible are dedicated to it. I also think
it's why the devil hates it so much.
At the great marriage supper of
the Lamb, all true followers of Christ
will have the privilege 9f being
called His bride for Ill of eternity.
(Revelation 19:7-9) Notice I said fol-
lowers of Christ. It's one thing
to say we believe in Jesus but anoth-
er to follow Him where He leads us.
That thought brings another scrip-
ture to mind Revelation 14:4b:
"these are they who follow the Lamb
wherever He goes..." Though I real-
ize for some, I may be stirring up
some theological conflicts, the rule

to keep things simple works well
God is love. To make that practi-
cal and understandable for us, He
instituted this thing called marriage.
When it's working correctly, it's a
small picture of a much more fulfill-
ing and eternal relationship. Like
Christ has loved us all to the point of
laying down His life for us, so ought
men tq lay down their lives for their
wives. In like fashion, when a
woman feels such deep and genuine
love from her husband, she is happy
to follow him to the ends of the
earth, just as the church does with
Jesus. (Ephesians 5:22-32) For me,
my wife's hand in mine is the gospel
plain and simple.

Clubs help kids build tech skills

Most folks who have an
interest in Boys & Girls Clubs
are well aware that the young-
sters come to the clubs' after-
school programs to participate
in structured activities of learn-
ing, fun and athletics. But one
unique feature of the two local
clubs that may not be well
known is what the kids call the
"Computer Lab," otherwise
known as the Technology
Both the new Roberts Club
in Fernandina Beach and the
Miller Club on Old Nassauville
Road include spacious areas
with computer workstations lin-
ing the walls. Formal classes
are scheduled for club mem-
bers, twice a week for each age
group. During those classes a
staff member oversees young-
sters as they access learning
programs on websites aimed
at their age. These programs
range from strategic games to
history stories to building vir-
tual models of structures. And
late in the afternoon, members
may come in to use the work-
stations for fun or projects of
their own. All available web-
sites are those reviewed by the
Nassau County School District
or by the club staff so nothing
inappropriate is viewed.

When youngsters join a
Boys & Girls Club, they usual-
ly'have basic computer skills,
learned either at school or at
home, and know how to log on
to play a game. But ihe clubs
make sure the kids learn how
to really use a computer how
to type, open word processing
programs and access the
Internet, each child using a per-
sonalized account with their
own username and password.
Teaching such skills is simpli-
fied by using the Microsoft

Multjpoint server, which
enables the club staff to con-
trol the display of each mem-
ber's computer screen.
But perhaps the biggest
asset of the clubs is not the
array of computers available to
the members. Rather it is the
two enthusiastic and talented
staff members who are in
charge of the Technology
Centers: Dana Morris at the
Roberts Club and Janis
Williamson at the Miller Club.
These two experienced and

& Girls Club
skills at the.
Miller Club's

dedicated people display a love
of digital technology that is
exceeded only by their love of
the kids they serve or per-
haps the enthusiasm of the kids
using the "Computer Lab".
When club members grow
up, they can rely on use of com-
puter skills learned after school
at the club in a fun-filled and
educational program. Just one
more reason for your young-
ster to join a Boys & Girls Club,
