More than 3.000 potential new
homes are still awaiting the con-
struction of Amelia Concourse.
The proposed four-lane road will
wend 3.5 miles from the intersec-
tion of AlA and Chester Road
southeast to CR 107, connecting
about 2,500 acres of property zoned
mostly for residential subdhisions.
Thousands of homes with access to
the concourse are projected to be
built by 2012, and those making up
the Municipal Service Benefit Unit
(MSBU) agreement will be spe-
cially taxed to pay for the road's
projected $7 million price tag.
Dennis Ja-inskv. one of those
involved in det-loping subdivisions
along the road's path; said-proper-
ty owners have paid the first of 10
annual assessments to finance road
construction.
But Nassau County Growth
Management Director Chris
Jackson said recently the county'
is awaiting an environniental permit
from St Johns Water Management
District before construction of the
road-can proceed. Neither she nor
a spokesperson with St. Johns said
they could estimate how long it
would take before the county
learned the fate of its permit.
Jackson said the delay is not unex-
pected or unusual.
"It's actually moving along as
fast as it can." Jackson said. "It's a
difficult process to complete."
So far the county has approved
the rezoning and future land use

four subdivisions off Amelia
Concourse. including Hampton
Lakes, Amelia Concourse subdivi-
sion, Flora Parke extension and

other subdivisions also have
received map amendments, but are

urged


to curb


expenses

BENJAMIN PRICE
News Leader
How do we get out of this mess?
That was the question bandied
about last week by the Nassau
County Commission and a citizens'
group whose task was to help the
county reform its financial policies
- and budget procedures.
After five months of meetings,
the eight-member Budget Policy
and Finance Reform Committee
. presented its recommendations
and a proposed ordinance to the
county commission May 11, along
with a clear message:
Increase fees to make growth
pay for itself;
Revert to a revenue-driven
budget process as opposed to an
expense- driven process;
Implement a comprehensive
cost reduction plan as soon as pos-
sible.
The committee presented the
county commission with a draft
ordinance reflecting these initia-
tives, which will be discussed again
at the June 8 commission meeting.
Committee member Phil
Scanlan told the commission more
budget and expense controls need
to be included in the financial
process so that the current fiscal
crisis that's gripping the county
won't happen again.
In addition to the ordinance,
Scanlan said the committee would
like to see downsizing across the
board, and more planning for traf-

SIAN PERRY
News-Leader
For local animal rescue groups,
spring means one thing: more mis-
ery, more suffering and more off-
spring for the hundreds of unwant-
ed, uncared for and abandoned pets
in Nassau County's midst
"We are loaded right now," said
Suzanne Rimbert of Cats Angels,
noting the agency took in 143 cats
andekittens in April alone. The first
weekend of May, another mother
and five two-week-old kittens were
dropped at its thrift store doorstep
on Eighth Street.
It's the same at the county-run
Animal Control, said Animal


Control Officer Bonnie Lee.
"It's springtime, so we are going
to be very full," she said, adding
unwanted puppies have become a
problem year-round.
"People leave (their pets) in the
house or a ,garage" when they
move, Rimbert said. "They're not
commodities, they're not dispos-
able."
In fact, Nassau County has one
of the highest kill rates of unwant-
ed animals in the country, at 62
pets per 1,000 residents per year,
said Rick DuCharme, president of
First Coast No More Homeless
Pets. The national average is 16.
In neighboring Jacksonville it's 22,
said DuCharme.


'd~liH .j 1 j IJ dr v" I

"It's a pretty massive problem"
in Nassau County.
"The problem is absolutely, pos-
itively no better. It's as bad as it
-ever was," said Pat Quattlebaum
of STARS, or Save the Animals
Rescue Society, the local dog res-
cue group.
The city of Jacksonville funds
its Spayjax Program with $250,000
a year from its general budget, said
DuCharme. In its third year the
number of animals entering shel-
ters has decreased by nine percent,
or 4,000 per year. Prior to that, the
shelters had been seeing a 15-20
percent annual increase, he said.

The coolest, most pleas-
ant spring in 12 years
has inspired homeown-
ers, who are out with
their spades, rakes, buckets,
wheelbarrows, trimmers, lawn-
mowers and muscles, sprucing
up home and garden.
All this effort can bring forth a
big smile of pride in a job well
done. It can also bring forth a big
grimace of pain, if your back has
rebelled from the unaccustomed
strain. That is pretty common,
and everyone who has experi-
enced a strained back can vouch
for the misery it causes.
Although the back pain my
have started suddenly, back dis-
orders often develop slowly from
repeated stress over time. The
band of muscles crisscrossing
around the torso protects the
back from injury, so keeping
those muscles fit year-round is a

Partnership (SHIP) will meet at 4 p.m. May 24 at

Libraries dosed
The Nassau County Public Libraries will be


good idea.
Just a few
simple exer-
cises several
times a week
will do it
One is to
lie on your


stomach on a solid surface, arms
spread-eagled, and raise legs,
arms and head a few inches from
the floor, holding the pose a cou-
ple of minutes. I call this one "the
airplane."
Here are some tips from the
Occupational Safety and Health
Administration for avoiding
injuries anytime you have to lift
medium-weight or heavy objects:
Put stress on your legs, not
your back, when lifting a heavy
object from ground level.
Stand close to the object
with your feet about shoulder-
width apart. Keep your back
arched and as vertical as possible
and your chin down. Bend your
knees and lower yourself until


you are in a position to grasp the
object firmly.
Grip it below its center of
gravity and hold it as close to
your body as you can. Holding a
heavy object with your arms
extended and with a gap between
your torso and the weight puts
extra stress on the arms, shoul-
ders and back and reduces the
amount of weight you can safely
lift.
Raise the weight by keeping
your back straight and lifting with
your thigh and calf muscles.
Don't try to jerk the weight up;
lift with smooth, solid accelera-
tion.
A second method for lifting
is the diagonal lift: Instead of
squatting with both feet at shoul-
der width, place one foot to the
side of the load and cock one foot
behind your body with the knee
close to the ground in front of the
load. Keep the object close to
your body as you push up with
your leg muscles.


closed May 30 in observance of Memorial Day.
No fines will be assessed this day and the book
drops will remain open.

Naval officers meet
The Military Officers Association Of
America, Mayport Chapter, will hold Its monthly
meeting on June 9 at Ocean Breeze Conference
Center, Naval Station, Mayport.
Social hour is at 6:30 p.m. The guest speaker
is the Commanding Officer of the Maritime
Safety Office, Jacksonville, CapL David L
Lersch, USCG.
For reservations contact Ann Froehlich at
(904) 646-0944.
For all other information contact, Col. John
Watson, USMC (Ret), (904) 220-0853, ore-mall
jhwatson Il@comcast.net Visit the web site at
www.mpmoaa.org.


Never lift in a position that
causes you to twist your back
muscles to one side. If lifting in a
confined space will make you lift
from an off-center angle, try slid-
ing the object into the open.
Plan ahead, particularly if
you are lifting with another per-
son's help; know where you plan
to carry the object and where you
will put it down.
The National Institute of
Neurological Disorders and
Stroke adds that it is important to
stretch gently before you do any
strenuous activity; don't slouch
when you stand or sit, and switch
sitting positions often and period-
ically walk around the office or
gently stretch muscles to relieve
tension.
I think it is especially impor-
tant when doing small repetitive
chores in the yard that require
squatting or bending to change
positions often in order to avoid
muscle strain.

tensions a disappearing perK oi retirement


t used to be that you got a
handshake, a gold watch and
a lifetime pension when you
retired.
Nowadays, instead of a hand-
shake, you might just get a push
- into an early, forced retirement.
Even if you are more fortunate,
you probably can forget the
watch, but at a greater cost the
pension. Fewer companies are
offering defined pensions for
retirees; many are also cutting
back on critical medical benefits
for their former employees.
The latest crack in the icp is
the announcement this week that
United Air lines, mired in bank-
ruptcy, has succeeded in handing
off its pilots' pension commit-


ments to the
federal gov-
ernment.
There will be
further legal
challenges to
a judge's
decision to
bail out
United and
Steve its pension
Nickeas plan.
NICklas However, it is
.. a disturbing
STEVE'S trend that
MARKET appears more
than ever.
PLACE Like other
companies,
United has been caught between


demanding shareholders and a
burgeoning force of retirees, who
are living longer and drawing
more from the pension plan.
United's plea for financial help
with its pension plan is the sec-
ond-largest ever in terms of the
scope. (Bethlehem Steel was the
largest in 2003.)
This is the way a pension
bailout works. A government
agency, the Pension Benefit
Guaranty Corp., becomes the
payee of the pension benefits.
The corporation, such as United,
no longer has to make the pen-
sion payments to its retirees.
However, the maximum pension
offered by the government
agency is about $45,000 per year,


meaning retirees earning more
than that get a severe pay cut.
Enter the United pilots. Some
were earning upwards of
$100,000 per year in pension ben-
efits and will now feel the pinch
of a 50-some percent reduction.
Several other airlines are also toy-
ing with the same idea. The pen-
sion reductions hit close to home,
since a good number of pilots live
in Nassau County.
For all these reasons, pen-
sions are becoming a thing of the
past. Pensions are still common
in civil service and government-
related jobs, but in the private
sector, only one out of five em-
ployees is covered by a pension.
More companies are now


offering lower-cost 401(k) s and
other retirement plans in which
most of the contributions are
made by employees. Many small
businesses, where most people in
the country are employed, do not
offer a retirement plan (they are
not required to do so).
With a 401k, you take the
money with you when you
change jobs or retire. At retire-
ment, you essentially convert the
401k into an income-generating
source, to complement Social
Security and any pensions you
might have accumulated along
the way.
But even if you are one of the
fortunate to have a pension wait-
ing for you at retirement, consid-


er this: four out of five pension
plans are underfunded, which
means they don't have enough
money to pay what they have
promised.
To complicate matters, the
Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp.
is also underfunded, running a
$23.3 billion deficit, according to
reports. And the Social Security
puzzle is difficult to figure as you
look into the future.
Those of us heading into
retirement have to ask: Will we at
least still get the handshake, and
maybe a marked-down Casio
watch?

adviser who lives on Amelia
Island.

Skate park gets



$150,000 grant


SUBMITrED
From left, Chip Townsend, Jeri Kolke and Suzanne Willis of First Coast Community Bank receive a "We Noticed" presentation for
beautifying bank property. Keep Nassau Beautiful presents the award to businesses and organizations for helping to "keep
Nassau beautiful." Right, Jason Mudd, president of AXIA Public Relations and Marketing, and Chip Townsend, president of First
Coast Community Bank, receive Image Awards from Leah Lauderdale, president of the Florida Public Relations Association.


After a three-year fund-raising
effort, Operation Skate is finally
coasting to its ultimate goal. The
Florida Recreation Development
Assistance Program recently
awarded a $150,000 grant to the
city of Fernandina Beach, working
in conjunction with Operation
Skate, for the construction, of a
skate park.
"We have wished long and
hard for this grant," said Patty
Murray, president of Operation
Skate, in a press release. "We still
need another $50,000 to finish the
project, but this grant means we
will now be able to move on to
building the skate park. Our plan
is to start construction this fall."
Including the grant, Operation
Skate has raised $250,000 in cash
and donated materials. The city


has already begun clearing the
two-acre plot of land on Airport
Road where the skate park will
be built.
Operation Skate still needs
donations in order to reach its
final goal of $300,000. For more
information, call (904) 753-3628
or visit www.operationskate.org.
Operation Skate Inc. is a not-
for-profit organization formed by
parents and concerned citizens to
lessen the burden on government
by building a city and county -
supported free park that is super-
vised, safe and designated for use
by skateboarders, rollerbladers
and BMX bicyclists. Operation
Skate is a 501(c)3 organization
registered with the state of Florida
and the IRS. All donations are tax
deductible.

DID YOU KNOW?
IT IS ILLEGAL.
THAT'S RIGHT ... ILLEGAL
For Funeral Homes to tie fees for their services to your
purchasing a casket from them, or to charge a "Handling
Fee" for a casket purchased elsewhere.
Don't be intimidated by the "Funeral Director."
There is a rule that is enforced by the Federal Trade
Commission called "The Funeral Rule."
***REMEMBER***
"The Funeral" provider may not refuse or charge a fee to
handle a casket you bought elsewhere.
For more information on this rule: http://www.ftc.gov
**There are concerned and professional funeral industry
personnel you will, however, meet resistance with some
of those who are not. You may ask us this question:
Why buy a casket from a casket Supply Store,
and how does this work?
Answer: To save MONEY, a lot of it!
And the merchandise is delivered to a Funeral Home
of "your choice." The casket is often the single most
expensive part of a funeral. Why pay a big price tag,
when you can get a casket identical to those offered
at a funeral home for far less???
At First Coast Funeral Supply We carry a full line of
"Your Loved One's" needs in our "Showroom."

OPINION


WEDNESDAY, MAY 18,2005/NEWS-LEADER


VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Gas up inj ax
Let the county pass a gas tax. I
go visit my mother in Jax every
week and that's when I fill up my
truck. So let them raise it up high-
er than it already is and I will buy
two five-gallon jugs and buy all my
gas in Duval County. All at once!
Gas is already higher in Callahan
and Hilliard'than the rest of the
county.
Mark Cooner
Callahan

Taken for a ride
Why should we have an addi-
tional gas tax in Nassau County?
Our gasoline prices are already
higher than they are in any of the
surrounding counties. You can
save 10 cents a gallon or more in
Jacksonville, or 20 cents per gallon
by driving across the state line to
Kingsland. I, for one, do not buy
any more gasoline than I have to in
Nassau County now.
In fact I am going to buy several
five-gallon gasoline cans and make
a weekly trip to Georgia to fill up
one vehicle, and fill up the cans
for the other. I have lived in this
county for almost 40 years, and
this has been the mentality of the
business owners in Nassau County
for all this time. They apparently
think that the consumers in this
county don't know that they can
drive just a short distance and save
on gasoline and a lot of other
things also.
I wish the people of Nassau
County would boycott the local gas
stations. Let them find out that
Nassau County residents are tired
of being taken for a ride, and that
they are intelligent enough to
know that it is happening.
William D. Dubberly Sr.

Had his fill
With the economy prospering
as never before, and with energy
prices lower than ever, it is a bold
stroke of pure genius for the coun-
ty commission to consider impos-
ing an additional five-cent-per-gal-
lon tax on gasoline.
Tapping into a primal, instinc-
tual human urge to be exploited,
abused and mistreated incessant-
ly, cruelly and relentlessly, Lewis
"Alice's Adventures in
Wonderland" Carroll began his
1889 (the same year Adolf Hitler
was born) work, Sylvie and Bruno,
with the vibrant if topsy-turvy
credo, "Less bread! More taxes!"


This happy dictum became the for-
mal operational imperative of hap-
less governments globally.
The county commission has
advanced beyond condemning
deviant sexual orientations and
practices by formulating and
implementing its own version of
S&M stupid and moronic.
I have had my fill, and fill-up,

FBHS Classof'05
Many times we hear the phrase
"The Power of One." I would like to
call to your attention the power of
340 individuals.
Four years ago I underwent a
career change and became a
teacher at FBHS. I wasn't sure this
was the right move for me and was
very nervous and apprehensive.
Being the new kid, I was shortly
"tricked" into becoming the spon-
sor for the class of '05. Not only
was this one of the best favors any-
one has done for me, but being
associated with these young people
has been one of the most inspiring
and rewarding of my life.
These class members come
from all walks of life, different
social scenes and varied opinions,,
but mostly they all came togeth-
er. Most classes can easily pick
out a leader, but not this one. When
something needed to be done a
different person would step for-
ward each time. If someone need-
ed help there were five ready to
assist. Goals were set, worked for
and reached together. They went
through the worst together, includ-
ing the death of a much-loved class-
mate and some parents. They also
went through the good times and
included everybody in "the group."
They have been called one of the
most successful classes in the his-
tory of FBHS because of their fund-
raising efforts and their accom-
plishments, but mostly because of
their unity.
To me, however, their power
had nothing to do with how much
money they had or how successful
they were, it had to do with how
each particular one affected my
life. Each student showed me
respect, encouraged me to "go out
on a limb," and to approach my
new life with life. They treated my
children as their little brothers and
sisters, never complained when I
couldn't do something because I
had a family event or was just too-
worn out and were there to cheer
me on when there was yet anoth-


er challenge I had to meet.
Sounds like children you would
love to have doesn't it? Well, you
do! They are the way they are
because of all the care, love and
interest shown to them by their
parents long before I met them.
Their parents to this day are
involved in their lives enough to
show they care (which is a lot) yet
are secure enough in these young
people to allow them to grow on
their own. I hope I can follow in
their footsteps with my own small
ones.
The power of one is an amazing
strength, but when each individ-
ual uses that power and unites with
their neighbor it is awesome.
These students may have a lot to
yet learn, but I would like to pub-
licly thank each one for what they
have taught me about myself in
the last four years and wish them
all the ability not to lose their
power in years to come.

Sutton Place
I was interested to read your
articles on Sutton Place Behavioral
Health in the News-Leader on May
4. As the president of the National
Alliance for the Mentally Ill
(NAMI) of Nassau County and a
child advocate in the Guardian Ad
Litem Program, I am very familiar
with the services that Sutton Place
provides. These services are
extremely necessary and invalu-
able to our community. They are
also available in Nassau County,
as opposed to having to drive to
Jacksonville, to receive the same
services.
In the article entitled "Sutton
Place struggles with state funds
formula," I was very disturbed by
the quote, "The people Sutton
Place serves (people with alcohol,
drug, illicit sex and serious mental
problems) is growing exponen-
tially and more rapidly than the
population as a whole." I am hop-
ing that this statement was a mis-
quote or misprint, because it does
a tremendous disservice to the
clients who participate in outpa-
tient treatment. Unfortunately,
alcohol, drug and sexual addic-
tions are very serious problems in
our nation, and I applaud every-
one who is seeking treatment to
overcome them.
"Serious mental problems" are
often undiagnosed mental illness-
*es (which are biological brain dis-
orders) requiring medical treat-
ment and medication. As stated in


"Copyrighted Material

I S


a gw9


the adjoining article ("A safety net
for those in crisis"), "Services
offered at Sutton Place include
community education, crisis coun-
seling, group treatment, mental
health and substance abuse coun-
seling for adults and children,
including intervention in schools;
Department of Juvenile Justice
client services, anger management
programs for children and adults,
parenting classes, and children's
grief counseling." They also have
two drop-in centers where clients
with a mental health diagnosis can
learn basic living skills and interact
with others. I have had the privi-
lege of attending functions at the
drop-in center in Fernandina
Beach and support the work that
they are doing on behalf of their
clients. I also regularly attend the,
Sutton Place board of directors
meetings in my role as an advo-
cate.
As indicated in the article,
Sutton Place is primarily funded
through the Department of
Children and Families, Medicaid
and other public and private
sources. Sutton Place is one of the
lowest-funded county-level com-
munity behavioral health centers in
the lowest-funded Department of
Children and Families districts
(District 4) in the state. For years,
Sutton Place and NAMI of Nassau
County have- been':concerned
about the inequity of funding and
have petitioned every state and
legislative agency to make it more


equitable. What most people don't
realize is that community outpa-
tient treatment is the most suc-
cessful, and cost-effective, method
of treatment Without these serv-
ices, the actual costs escalate dra-
matically for law enforcement, cri-
sis intervention units, in-patient
hospitalizations, state-sponsored
foster care and juvenile and adult
correctional facilities.
In closing, I would like to add
that sometimes people who need
help the most are the least able to
afford it. It is collectively worth
our while to provide' services to
assist people in becoming more
healthy and productive members
of society. It's good for individu-
als, families, and our community as
a whole.

I want to express my appreci-
ation to Mrs. Hightower, Mrs.
Thompson and Coach Johnson.
They have all done an excellent
job with the student council at
YMS. They organized a trip for
these children to Washington,
D.C., that was a huge success. As
a parent whose children have been
jivolveqIwith nurnerous activities
that were very unorganized and
then to have your child involved in
an activity that is so well organ-


ized is truly a great experience.
These teachers should truly be
commended for their hard work
and extreme dedication to our chil-
dren.

Forceful
Re: Coleman Langshaw's col-
umn "We don't need Bolton at the
UN" (May 4) I say Bolton is exact-
ly the one we need there. You don't
send a paper salesman to tame a
hyena.
The UN is an anti-American
organization that is incompetent,
impotent and cowardly.
Its leader is a thief (remember
oil for food?). They run at the first
casualty (remember Iraq?).
Appoint Libya to oversee human
rights? Blind to genocide in the
Sudan?
The UN is up in arms if we
embarrass a couple of prisoners
and say nothing when terrorists
kidnap and behead people.
We need someone with a force-
ful personality at the UN. Oh, by
the way, I'm sure a few liberal
wimps in England do object to
Bolton but who listens to them.
Tony Blair was re-elected.
And Haliburton, their shareholders
are doing just fine thank you.

If not a



gas tax



then what?
Nassau County Commissioners have sched-
uled a public hearing June 13 to consider a pro-
posal to add a 5-cent-per-gallon gasoline tax.
County Administrator Mike Mahaney said the
proposed tax would bring in about $1 million a
year to pay for county road resurfacing, mainte-
nance and upgrades. This would be enough rev-
enue to resurface 13 miles of roads a year, and
each county-maintained road once every 30 years,
Mahaney said.
Mahaney essentially has given commissioners
four options to pay for county road work:
Levy the 5-cent a gallon gas tax.
Increase property taxes by 0.25 mills to raise
$1.25 million a year for county roads.
Re-designate a 0.25 mill tax once designated
for county roads to that purpose. Commissioners
reallocated that money to meet other needs dur-
ing the county budget crisis.: .........
Do nothing. .aeit-s bus bnsirmsoO
Mahaney contends that doing nothing is unac-
ceptable given the number of complaints each
year about county-maintained roads and the grow-
ing number of people who live on or drive those
roads.
Designating 0.25 mills for roads requires
either an unpopular property tax increase or fur-
ther cuts in county services that already have
been slashed this year, Mahaney said.
He contends that those who use the roads
should pay for them and suggests the gas taxis
preferable to property tax because tourists and
other visitors pay a significant share of it.
Of course, those of us that live and drive here
would pay the additional gas tax. And we don't
like it. Furthermore, the public has little confi-
dence in its county government because of past
mistakes in managing its budget
But Mahaney is doing his best to identify solu-
tions to our problems problems that are not of
his making. He is attempting to restore fiscal
accountability and confidence. He has a five-year
plan for road work.
If the gas tax is not be the answer, neither is
doing nothing. Solving our problems will require
pain and sacrifice in the form of higher taxes or
reduced services of that we can be certain.
Selling any solution will not be easy, but the
sooner we get on the road to recovery the sooner
we will get there.


COMMUNITY THANKS

Good sportsmanship
I want the city of Femandina to know what an out-
standing coaching staff Fernandina Beach High
School's baseball and softball teams have. Thursday
night we were to play our first round of regional play-
offs for softball. As you know it poured rain and our
field was completely under water. According to
FSHAA guidelines on inclement weather we were
supposed to first try to play at a nearby field before
we moved the game date. We called Coach Roland
and received permission to play on their softball
field.
The coaching staff went above and beyond to
help us play our game. Coach Roland's staff cut the
outfield and lined the infield. Coach Lesley Slaughter
and her husband made sure we had everything to
successfully carry out our game, including opening
the concession stand. The coaching staff put aside
the fact West Nassau is a cross-county rival on the
field and realized as coaches we are dedicated to our
student athletes first. They stood out in the rain
and cold wind and helped make our first round of
regional playoffs a success.
Thank you Fernandina Beach High School soft-
ball and baseball coaching staff.

A mother's story of tragic loss


This is my personal story about the tragic
loss of my son, Jeffery. If telling my story
saves one person's life or brings a parent
and child closer together, it will be worth
the pain of talking about it.
On July 12, 2003, my husband, daughter and I
drove to Virginia Beach to be with my family.
Jeffery was already there, working with his father .
that summer. On the 14th Jeffery drove back to
Florida to register for college, spend time with his
girlfriend, Ashley, and to celebrate his best friend
Chris's 18th birthday.
Our trip was not an ordinary visit to see my fami-
ly. My brother, Thomas, was scheduled to have a
brain tumor removed on July 17. We all spent a lot
of heartfelt time together, which has always been
very easy for our family. We laughed a lot, like we
always do when we are together, but inside was a
fear of the unknown. On the morning of the 17th,
we all spent time together in his hospital room and
then they wheeled him away for surgery. We paced
the waiting room floors for six hours waiting to hear
what we needed to hear. I remember watching my
mother and praying that God would not take her
only son, knowing that she could not survive that
kind of loss. Especially after losing my father two
years earlier.
We saw the doctor coming toward us and we
were all frantically searching for a sign in his
expression. He quickly assured us that the surgery
was a success and that there was no reason that
Thomas would not recover completely.
That night in my mother's house we had our own
celebration and thanked God that he was OK. A
friend of mine called and in our conversation she
said, "You guys have been through so much, to be
sure nothing else could happen." Being the supersti-
tious person I am, I said, "Don't say that. It could
bring bad luck."
On July 18, 2003, my life, as I knew it, would trag-
ically change forever.
On the morning of the 18th my husband Joe and
I were driving to the hospital to visit my brother in
intensive care. While I was driving my husband's
cell phone rang. That call would change our lives
forever. We pulled over to the side of the road while
the voice on the other end told us that there had
been an accident and that Jeffery was gone. I franti-
cally prayed aloud, "Please God, just let him be
alive. I can handle anything else. Just let him be
alive." I took the phone from my husband and told
the voice that Jeffery was not gone. That no one
could take Jeffery away from me, but they just kept


Jeffery Bonney

saying, "I'm so sorry." I begged God to take me, too,
because at that moment my first instinct was that I
could not live without Jeffery. He was only 18 years
old and had just graduated that May from
Fernandina Beach High School.
A lot of the events that followed that life-altering
phone call are still.a blur to me. I remember my hus-
band and I driving back to my mother's house. I
remember calling my sisters and my mom and say-
ing, "I need you, Jeffery's gone." I remember
Jeffery's father, Jeff Bonney, coming to my mother's
house and the two of us just standing there hugging
one another.
We all flew on the first plane back to Florida. We
sat on the back row of the plane and we all cried and
hugged Jeffery's picture to our hearts.
Jeffery was flown back to Virginia Beach on the
same flight with all of us, including his girlfriend

Public libraries bv the numbers


When we think of libraries, we often
think of words, not numbers. Yet num-
bers can reveal a lot about a public
library its use in the community, the
strength of its collection compared to other
libraries;,the'pace and workload of the employees
m ated'volWeentandltn'dion'imdulalinn growtlti amnd
changes in demographicss'
How are we doing? Consider these numbers:
Of the 63,135 residents in the county, more
than 44,000 (two-thirds) have library cards.
There were 112,349 visits to the Fernandina
Beach library last year, a 14 percent increase over
the last five years.
Residents checked out 154,079 items from the
Fernandina Beach branch, a 16 percent circulation
increase from 2000 to 2003 with a decrease in 2004
(reflecting the decreased budget for new releases).
The Fernandina Beach branch's collection has
2.4 books per capital; the state of Florida requires a
minimum of 3.0 books per capital.
According to the Hennen American Public
Library Ratings Report which measures efficiency
based on circulation, hours of service and other
items based on budget per capital the Nassau
County Public Library System ranks in the 62nd
percentile of all Florida library systems. In the
entire country, Florida's libraries rank 34th. (For

Why should we care about the num-
bers? When our government officials
are forced to makecfifcult decisions
about investing in things thawill t
make a difference, we've learned that
numbers matter.

What the numbers tell us is that our public
libraries are well used by many who live and visit
here. However, unless budget numbers increase to
keep up with the population growth, satisfaction lev-
els will predictably decline. Because some books
are heavily reviewed on radio and television,
demand for popular materials is greater. Yet without
the budget to purchase important new books for the
collection or simply to order just a few new releases,
circulation rates have already decreased though
demand remains high.
Purchasing popular and important new works
allows a community to be up-to-date with current
events and world literature. It also fulfills the
library's number one goal of providing popular
materials to residents. According to Dawn
Bostwick, director of the Nassau County Public
Library System who provided our current figures,


we once were able to purchase one copy for every-
five requests, which is a purchasing guideline for
public libraries across the country Bostwick noted,
"When we can only purchase a single copy of Jack
Welch's Winning or Sue Monk Kidd's The Mermaid
Chair, we don't even c,-me cl,,si lr rating -:,

names long while only 17 people will be able to read
the book in one year. Our community falls behind -
lacking the current information to learn, make deci-
sions, discuss new trends and better understand the
world."
Why should we care about the numbers? They
provide us with input on whether investing in
improvements to the public library will pay off in
the long run an indication that enhanced services
will likely be used by citizens. When our govern-
ment officials are forced to make difficult decisions
about investing in things that will make a differ-
ence, we've learned that numbers matter.
From our numbers, it's clear that not only does
much of-the community use its public library, we
are quickly falling behind without the support of our
governing body.

A special invitation to help students


I invite you to join Communities In Schools
Century Club and help change lives in our com-
munity. Two years ago we began a Century
Club to support the work of Communities In
Schools (CIS). Our team, led by Susan Milana, deliv-
ers in-school programs with an academic focus in
the middle schools and a career focus in the high
schools.
Many students are at a critical crossroads during
these years. Their backgrounds are diverse, but the
needs are universal. They thrive on support, direc-
tion, coaching and a healthy dose of positive rein-
forcement. The schools in our county are trending in
a positive direction, and I applaud that. But there are
so many kids that need the "something extra" that
we deliver.
Our after school program and in-school coaching
and tutoring program at Fernandina Beach Middle
School has been operational for many years, and Dr.
John Mazzella will attest to its positive impact. We
added a similar program at Hilliard Middle-Senior
high school two years ago and the results speak for
themselves. Next we are answering the call from
Yulee Middle School Principal Dr. Deonia Simmons,
and will provide services there starting in August.
At the high school level, our career exploration,
work readiness and interview challenge program
has been a home run. With the addition of FBHS
this year, we operate this program in all three county
high schools. What could be more relevant in our
county than preparing kids for the job market during

and after high school? Many of our graduates are not
college intenders, and local employees benefit from
students ready and focused to join the workforce
here in Nassau County.
Communities in Schools operates in 36 states,
and has consistently been rated by Worth Magazine
as one of the Top 100 charities to change the world.
Communities In Schools is the largest free youth
serving organization in Nassau County. We serve
more than 2,000 kids each year, with over 800 youth
receiving intensive services 14 times each week.
Our name tells the story. It is community time and
financial resources at work to support our kids and
our schools. Our Century Club (supporters of
$1,000 or more) has driven our highly successful
programs. Our fund-raising need for our fiscal year
ending June 30 is $175,000, and we have raised
$140,000 year to date. Our challenge is raising that
final $35,000 before June 30.
There are no buildings to support, and our
administrative expenses are less than 10 percent.

and his best friend, Chris. I can remember Jeffery's
Dad at the airport watching to make sure that
Jeffery was in fact going home with us. Jeffery is
buried in Virginia Beach next to my father, and I will
be buried next to him.
It will be two years this July 18 since Jeffery left
this world to be with God.
I still spend a lot of time on Amelia Island
Parkway at the site of the accident. Jeffery was so
young and happy and full of life, so I try to make it a
beautiful place to be with plants and flowers full of
life, just like Jeffery. It's therapy for me to try and
make such a tragic piece of land a beautiful place to
go to. It's something about being there that brings
me comfort because I know that is where Jeffery's
soul left his body and went to heaven to be with
God.
There have been so many kind people who have
stopped there to give me a hug, leave flowers or
light a candle. And a retired schoolteacher always
leaves something beautiful there with a card.
Jeffery touched so many lives in his lifetime and
his memory will always live on.
For every parent who has lost their child, we all
have our own method of coping and grieving and
getting through life. There is no right or wrong way.
You have to find your own way to survive. Keeping
Jeffery's memory alive is what makes my heart feel
better along with the continued love and support of
our family and friends.
I was asked in the last few months what I was
most proud of in my life and my answer was the
wonderful relationship that I have with Jeffery and
my daughter, Jessica. Jeffery always knew that
there was nothing that he could not come home and
talk to me about. Our line of communication was
always open for any subject. I take great pride for
always being there for my son and my daughter. A
day never went or goes by without my children and
I saying I love you to one another and I thank God
for that. I made a promise in Jeffery's memory that I
would make sure that Jessica always has the uncon-
ditional love and happiness that Jeffery always had.
She deserves to have a happy loving mother just
like Jeffery. That is my goal in life, to make sure
Jessica and I have the same loving relationship that
Jeffery and I shared. Every night when Jessica is
ready for bed she blows a kiss up in the air and
says, "I love you Jeffery," and I say, "Jeffery loves
you too, Honey."
Lori Fransoso's son, Jeffery Bonney, died July 18,
2003, in an automobile accident on Amelia Island
Parkway.

County animal control


committee disbanded


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
The Nassau County Commis-
sion voted to "sunset" the animal
control oversight committee on
May 9, so the department will
report directly to the county
administrator.
The seven-member commit-
tee was originally established to
oversee the Nassau Humane
Society's operation of animal con-
trol, which had been outsourced
to that organization for years.
Due to citizen complaints and fis-
cal concerns- about how the
humane society was operating
animal control, the county com-
mission established the oversight
committee.
Made up of representatives
from the veterinary association,
the humane society, the county
commission and animal welfare
groups, the seven-member com-
mittee was charged with over-
seeing animal control's budget
and the department's day-to-day
operations. It also re-wrote the
county's animal control ordi-
nance, which dated back to the
1970s.
When the humane society
announced last year that it would
no longer perform animal con-
trol for the county, the committee
also facilitated animal control's
transition from an outsourced
operation to a county-operated
department.
Since the county did not have
a county administrator on staff
at the time, the committee was
also managing the day-to-day
operations of the department, and
handling staff and budget issues.
That changed May 9, when
the commission unanimously
voted to sunset the oversight


committee and put animal con-
trol under the direction of County
Administrator Mike Mahaney.
Commission Chair Ansley
Acree, who was also the com-
mission's representative on the
oversight committee, said
Tuesday that once animal con-
trol became a county department,
like all other county departments,
it should have reported to the
county administrator.
The problem was the county
did not have a county adminis-
trator until the hiring of Mahaney
in September 2004;-- several
months after the transition began.
The committee's oversight
over animal control was only tem-
porary, she said, and according to
the ordinance animal control
should be under the county
administrator's control.
Before the May 9 vote, the
presidentof the Nassau County
Veterinarian Association Jim
O'Brian and committee member
Beth Hackney of Cats Angels
asked the board to reconsider.
"I don't believe it's over until
the killing of healthy cats and
dogs ends. Until that time, our
work is not done," Hackney said.
O'Brian said he felt the coun-
ty's oversight committee was well
represented and encouraged the
commission to keep it active.
Acree said the county's dis-
banding of the current oversight
committee would not prevent
citizens from forming an animal
welfare committee that looks out
for animal control issues and
makes recommendations to the
county.
"I would certainly welcome
that, and Mike Mahaney would
too," she said. "The more input
we have the better off well be."

CATS Continued from lA
In Nassau County, a similar pro-
gram, Spay Nassau, has tem-
porarily ceased due to lack of fund-
ing, said DuCharme. Run strictly
with donations and by volunteers,
it raised $55,000 (including $15,000
from the discretionary account of
County Commissioner Ansley
Acree) and spayed or neutered
more than 600 pets.
He appealed to Nassau County
Commissioners at their regular
meeting April 25 for money raised
from dog and cat licenses to fund
the spay and neuter program. The
cost per capital would be 30 cents
per citizen, he said, and over five
years would result in a 25-30 per-
cent decrease in pets entering shel-
ters.
Vermont, New Hampshire, New
Jersey, Maine and Illinois have
enacted similar programs, funded
by everything from surcharges on
animal tags, donations dnd license
plates to income tax write-offs and
general fund allocations.
"It's better than picking up ani-
mals and killing them," said
DuCharme. "If we do enough of
it, we will decrease the number of
animals entering the shelters and
save the taxpayers dollars."
Adding to the problem region-
ally is a transient military popula-
tion, shipping out to Iraq and
Afghanistan and unable to take the
family pet, said Beth Hackney of
Cats Angels.
In a well-publicized story, the
shelter at Hinesville, Ga., was over-
run with 321 abandoned dogs and
cats in a one-month period this
year when an infantry division was
deployed from nearby Fort
Stewart.
Remembering the help it
received from Georgia veterinari-
ans when it was a fledgling organ-
ization in 2001, Cats Angels
stepped up and Rimberttraveledeto
Hinesville to pick up three nurs-
ing cats and 13 kittens that had
been abandoned and found living
under house. With no room at the
Hinesville shelter, all were slated to
be euthanized.
While the last thing Cats Angels
needs is more animals to care for,
they will help neighboring organ-
izations in an effort to stop killing
healthy animals, said Hackney.
"We don't want to put down
healthy cats. We've had some in
foster care for a year," she said.
But those with leukemia, HIV or
FIV, the feline version of AIDS,

tens in April.


face a certain death sentence, said
Hackney, "and kittens that get
pneumonia, 90 percent of them
die."
That's the kind of life that cats
in particular are subjected to when
left to fend for themselves, said Dr.
Sheila Norstrud of the 4 Paws Pet
Clinic in Yulee, who also cites dog
attacks and car accidents as typical
hazards. Dogs are at risk of those
as well as parvo, heartworm and
other diseases. The clinic is a mem-
ber of a local vet association that
works with local rescue organiza-
tions to help spay and neuter and
otherwise care for the homeless
pet population.
Those organizations include
Cats Angels, STARS. Animal
Control and the Nassau Humane
Society, which has a contract with
the city of Fernandina Beach.
Unspayed. a female cat can pro-
duce a litter of 2-5 kittens three
times a year, said Norstrud. "You
can see where that number starts
to add up very quickly," she said,
where in two to five years you
could have 100,000 cats. Female
dogs come into heat twice a year.
While there are no solid statis-
tics, Cats Angels alone has spayed
or neutered 3,700 cats since 2001
and "prevented the births of tens of
thousands of unwanted kittens,"
said Rimbert. Another 1.925 have
been adopted. STARS has found
homes for 306 dogs in two and a
half years, said Quartlebaum.
She fears that with puppies now
being sold at a local pet store, the
problem will only become worse.

Finding the funds
Rick DuCharme of First Coast
No More Homeless Pets offers
the following as possible rev-
enue sources for funding a
county spay/neuter program:
Surcharge on rabies tags or
dogs/cals licenses
Pet food surcharge
Cat litter tax surcharge
Voluntary contributions
General Revenue Fund
Pet friendly license plates
Surcharge on puppies and
kittens sold in pet stores
One countywide solution
would be a pet license fee on
a tag recognized by all munici-
palities. All funds would go
towards proactive spayineuter
programs. Tags would cost
$10 per altered pet and $20 for
unaltered pets and be sold by
all veterinary clinics in the
county. First Coast No More
Homeless Pets could adminis-
ter tag sales, with oversight by
E.Cats Angels and.STARS. The
' ts and FCNMP-would.get
of the fee as an administra-
tive fee, leaving $6 to $16 for
the spay/neuter fund.

..COUNTY Continued from A
fic, contingencies and emergen-
cies.
"You inherited a mess, and
you've got to get out," he said.
"But manage finances better than
they've been managed before for
the people of this county after
you've left."
Committee member Bob Stay
said in the past 10 years, dramatic
growth in Nassau County gov-
ernment increased expenses
about 300 percent, while revenue
stayed well behind.
That led the county to gradu-
ally adopt an "expense driven"
budget process, instead of bas-
ing the budget on projected rev-
enues. The result was the coun-
ty started spending money when
the money wasn't there.
In order to reverse that trend,
the proposed ordinance would
require the county to limit expen-
ditures to expected revenues, and
not fund recurring expenditures
with non-recurring revenue
sources.
It would also require reserves
for contingencies to be main-
tained at a certain percentage of
expenditures.
This percentage would be set
by the commission if the ordi-
nance is adopted. Currently, the
ordinance does not recommend
any specific numbers or per-
centages, leaving those to the
commission's discretion.
The ordinance would require
the adoption of a five-year capital
improvement plan for items cost-
ing more than a specified
amount, and include projected
recurring expenses for those
projects.
It would also require the coun-
ty to establish a "municipal serv-
ice taxing unit" for every capital
project above a specified initial
cost and rate of recurring expens-
es.
"If we can find ways to make
growth pay for itself and it can
be done we have to do that,"
Stay said. "We've had runaway
expenses the last six or seven
years. If you can reduce those, I
think you'll find you won't have to
raise taxes."

'Concurrency fee' to


pay for new roads


BENJAMIN PRICE,
News-Leader

Nassau County Engineer Jos6
Deliz Deliz said a proposed impact
fee for new roads should techni-
cally be called a "concurrency fee"
and would be in addition to impact
fees already charged by the county.
Deliz said the proposed increase
would charge developers about
$3,000 per home if adopted.
It differs from the county's tra-
ditional impact fee, he said, because
it would be charged to a project's
developer not the builder and
would only apply to new develop-
ments east of 1-95 to the Intracoastal
Waterway.
No matter whether the devel-
oper or builder pays, however, the
fees are ultimately passed on to the
homebuyer.
Currently, the county charges
builders a variety of impact fees for
roads, public safety, police protec-
tion, administrative services and
recreation. Some of these fees vary
for different areas of the county and
are paid for by builders when they
receive a building permit
The "concurrency fee," Deliz
said, would be an additional fee paid
for by a project's developer while


the project is still in the planning
stages.
The proposed fee is $2,902 per
home, so a 500-home project would
cost the developer about $1.5 mil-
lion, plus any required intersection
improvements.
The concurrency fee was born
out of a "transportation concurren-
cy management area" plan, which
was prepared by Deliz and other
staff and has been submitted for
review by the county commission.
The analysis ,estimates a total
cost for six major road projects
planned for the eastern half of the
county. It includes a cost for each
road project, an estimated increase
in trips (capacity), and calculates
the total cost for each of those addi-
tional trips.
According to a draft of the plan,
the six road projects will cost
Nassau County a combined total of
$35 million, and would add more
than 12,000 total trips a day to the
county's road capacity. Therefore, it
estimates the county will spend
about $3,000 per trip.
In an effort to make new growth
pay for itself, that's the approximate
amount the county would charge
developers for each new home.

County building reserves,



but still in financial hole


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader

With possible hurricanes or
wildfires looming on the horizon
this summer it is "critical" that
Nassau County build financial
reserves to prepare for natural dis-
asters and remove itself from a
credit watch.
That was the message deliv-
ered to the county commission
May 11 during a mid-year budget
report, and the "good news" is the
county has built a $3.5 million'
reserve in the general fund.
However, according to the
report's authors, Clerk of Court
John Crawford and Finance
Director Ted Selby, there are sev-
eral other steps that need to be
taken if the county is to escape its
current fiscal crisis.
Crawford said the $3.5 million
-reserve is a step forward since the
previous fiscal year, when the coun-
ty was left with virtually no gener-
al fund reserve.
He said that's helping the coun-
ty "get out of the woods" of the
current crisis, and barring unfore-
seen major expenses, should leave
it in better financial shape when it
sets its next budget in October. It
also looks much better to credi-
tors, who put the county on a cred-
it watch largely because of those
depleted reserves.
"Clearly we've made some
progress in starting to build our
reserves, and if we're lucky
enough that we don't have to use
them, we're on the right track,"
Selby said about the report Friday.
Selby added that in prior years,
summer wildfires and other weath-


F er-related events
have cost the
county dearly in
firefighter over-
J time pay and
unanticipated
L reserves are
Crawford imperative every
year, and if the
disasters don't
occur, the county still benefits by
being able to leave the money in
the bank.
Unfortunately, firefighter over-
time is already a problem even
without a disaster.
The budget report indicates
Nassau County Fire-Rescue has
almost depleted its entire overtime
budget with five months still left
in the budget cycle. At its current
rate of expenditure, the overtime
budget will be gone in less than
two pay periods, Selby said.
The county left three firefight-
er positions unfilled when it set
the budget last October, and fire-
rescue has had to use overtime to
supplement the manpower short-
age. Combined with what Fire
Chief Chuck Cooper has called an
"unprecedented" rash of sick leave
and injuries, the overtime budget
is practically wiped out.
And according to the budget
report, that's part of a bigger prob-
lem the county is facing: how to
pay for fire-rescue?
During his presentation to the
commission, Crawford stressed
that ad valorem taxes from the
county's "municipal service fund"
should fully support fire-related
services.
But currently that tax is falling


$3.1 million short.
To make up the difference, the
county has been using funds from
its 1-cent surtax a purpose for
which the surtax was never intend-
ed. And it's costing the county
about 60 percent of its total sur-
tax revenue.
That's critical revenue intended
for capital projects and infrastruc-
ture needs that is now used simply
to cover county fire-rescue's debts,
Crawford said.
In October 2004, the county
increased the municipal service
fund tax from 0.3 to 0.8 mills, but
the revenues from that increase
are just now starting to trickle in.
Crawford said he hopes this and
possibly other steps will ensure
the municipal service fund will
eventually support county fire-res-
cue so the surtax revenues can be
freed up to pay for the types of
projects intended.
'That would be $3.1 million
extra right now you'd have for
county improvements," Crawford
told the commission.
Another hole in the county's
budget is the landfill. While there
are currently reserves in several
other departments, all of the land-
fill's reserves may have to be spent
to meet its operating costs. The
report says the county has yet to
find ways to compensate for an
expected $1.9 million in reduced
landfill revenue, which leaves it
with the prospect of starting next
year's budget cycle with a reserve
of "zero."
"Please solve that problem and
find a long-term solution,"
Crawford urged commissioners.

I3 DR.DOSO ANSWES*YOR QUSTIN


QUESTION: What is the
most common error
made by parents in dis-
ciplining their children?
DR.DOBSON: I would
say it I1 the inappropriate
use of singer in attempting
to manage boys and girls. It is
one of the most ineffective methods of
attempting to influence human beings (of all
ages). Unfartrun3tely.most adults rely prima-
rily on their own emotional response to
secure the cooperation of children.
One teacher said on a national television
program:t"Iike being a professional educator.
but I hate the daily task of teaching. My chil.
dren are so unruly that I have to stay mad at
them all the time lust to control the class-
room."
How utterly frustrating to be required
to be mean and angry to do a job year after
year.Yet many teachers (and parents) know
of no other way to manage children. Believe
me, It is exhausting -- and it doesn t work!
Consider your oran motriational system
and response to the anger of others. Suppose
you are driving your automobile home from
work this evening and you exceed the speed
bimk by 40 miles per hour Standing on the
street corner is a lone police officer who has
not bean given the means to arrest you. He
has no squad car or motorcycle- he wears no
badge, carries no gun and can write no tick-

pac. Would you slow down just because he
turns red In the face and shakes his fist in
prote-s? Of course not! You might wave to
him as you streak by. but his anger would
achieve little except to make him appear
comical and foolish.
On the other hand, nothing influences the
way you drive quite like seeing a black-and-
white vehicle in hot pursuit with 19 red and
blue lights flashing in the rearview mirror.
When you pull your car o-er to the curb, a
dignified, courteous officer approaches the
window. He is 6 foot 9 inches tall, has a voice
like the Lone Ranger and carries a gun on his
right hip.
"Sir." he says firmly but politely. "our
radar unit indicates you were traveling 65
miles per hour in a 25-mlle-per-hour-zone.
May I see your driver's license, please?" He

Community helps travelers in crisis


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
If travelers should find them-
selves in a crisis situation,
Fernandina Beach is a soft place to
land.
Jim Snyder can vouch for that.
He and his sister, Kathleen,
from Kansas, took a few days' vaca-
tion from their jobs to visit Richard
and Edna McDannold, friends they
had made via the Internet, playing
bingo and chatting. The Snyders
enjoyed sightseeing on their first
full day here, April 20, and looked
forward to a pleasant but short
stay.
Then catastrophe. On their
return to the inn, Kathleen sud-
denly collapsed and was rushed
to the local hospital via ambulance.
She was transferred to Baptist
Medical Center in Jacksonville
where she remains in stable con-
dition.
Such a terrible turn of events in
a strange place far from home
would be extremely difficult for
anyone to handle; it was especial-
ly so for Snyder and his sister, who
are both mentally challenged
adults.
Snyder manages his life amaz-
ingly well, in spite of his handicap,
by being well organized, planning
and keeping to an established rou-
tine in his daily life. He and
Kathleen share a home in Kansas,
and both.are employed. But when
something so unexpected happens,
everything unravels.
Anywhere else, Snyder would
surely have felt lost and bewil-
dered, facing a crisis he was unpre-
pared to handle alone. But
Fernandina Beach is not anywhere
else. It has a great many caring

Hampton Inn, according to Snyder,
have been extremely kind, and
responded to Alverez' request with
an even better deal: "There will be
no charge at all for as long as they
need to stay here."
Roland Knight, our police chap-
lain, contacted members of the
local Ministerial Association, who
began looking for homes where
Snyder and Haskins could stay if
and when that was needed. The
hospital provided daily meals, and
there were gifts of food and cloth-
ing from emergency room per-
sonnel.
"I can't believe the outpouring
of kindness and love that I have
received from this community,"
said Snyder. "A new friend,
Maureen, took me to Blackrock
Baptist Church and one of the
members gave us financial help;
another new friend took me to the
* shrimp festival, and Mac and Edna
McDannold stayed by my side dur-
ing those terrible first days. They
have been wonderful. All this -
and more. And all I ever asked for
was prayers!"
Alvarez said, "'The response has
been amazing. Everyone who has
heard about them has offered help.
Hospital employees have really
gone the extra mile taking Jim
places with their families, helping


him to feel that they are not in this
alone. Dr. Gerald Burford, who is
a member of 'Angel Wings' I
think it's called said that they
will fly Kathleen home without
charge when she is able to do so."
Snyder, overwhelmed by the
outpouring of kindness, said, "I
cannot sit still while so many are
helping. I want to show my appre-
ciation by giving back to the com-
munity in ways that I can." He has
been doing just that as a volun-
teer with the Barnabas Center's
store, New to You, while he waits
in hope of Kathleen's recovery.
The gentle, friendly brother and
sister team have not always found
a welcoming atmosphere in other
places they have visited. "We did-
n't like the Boston area at all," he
said. "Or Rhode Island. In some
places people with a handicap are
just not easily accepted. We are
looked upon as different. But we
are people, too, and have hearts
and feelings the same as anyone
else.
"It's different here. I found that
Southern hospitality still exists,
and I can't thank people enough for
their kindness and friendship. Two
days' vacation has turned into a
two-week experience I'll never for-
get."

ALICE WALSH/NEWS-LEADER
Keynote speaker Cal Thomas, right, and Mort Crim, local
author and journalist, share thoughts prior to the county's
observance of the National Day of Prayer.



Prayers seek



mercy, grace


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
'Trust in money, power and
things has eroded our society's
trust in God," said Cal Thomas in
his address to almost 500 persons
attending Nassau County's obser-
vance of the National Day of
Prayer at a breakfast held at The
Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island on
April 11.
Thomas, whose column is
published in hundreds of news-
papers nationwide, also appears
on Fox News on Saturday nights.
He went on to say that the moral
fiber of our country is deterio-
rating, and this condition cannot
be improved by ethical changes
apart from Christ.
"No one in Washington can
save us," he said. "From the out-
side in doesn't work."
Mort Crim, veteran broad-
caster, author and resident of
Amelia Island, introduced
Thomas, and Jeannie Blaylock,
First Coast News co-anchor,
served as the emcee. Blaylock
was the keynote speaker at the
first prayer breakfast held locally,
in 1998.
" That gathering of 300 was the
culmination of an effort begun
by a handful of local business-
men about six who had made
on Wednesday mornings tor
prayer and coffee in the '80s. Two
of those were Jerry Greeson and
Hugh Cullen, who talked about
the need for laymen to witness
to their faith. They held their first
public prayer meeting on the
same day as the National Day of
Prayer, around the flagpole at the
west end of Centre Street.
"There were only about 10 of

us at that first public gathering,
but we began to dream of making
this an annual event as an official
part of the National Day of
Prayer," said Greeson. "Our


search for a place, to hold the
event ended when The Ritz-
Carlton offered us a good price.
That first year we were hoping
that as many as 75 people would
show up and we got 300."
Allen Lennon and his wife,
Sharon, became involved in the
project, and he was the coordi-
nator of this year's event. "It's
taken a nucleus of people in a
community that says, 'We want
to do something in observance
of this special day.' It's done dif-
ferently in different communities.
We chose to have a breakfast, but
may expand the observance into
a full day, with other activities
that can include whole families.
Churches off the island have
become involved now, and I fore-
see an ever-growing participa-
tion."
The theme of this year's event
is taken from Hebrews 4:16. "Let
us then approach the throne of
grace with confidence, so that we
may receive mercy and find grace
to help in our time of need."With
great significance for us as a
nation as well as individually, the
National Day of Prayer, estab-
lished in 1952 by a joint resolution
of the United States Congress,
calls us to remember that our
founding fathers sought the wis-
dom of God when faced with crit-
ical decisions. and reminds us
;Iha v..e ai',- rnot u e- M u-.Ificelt
that we can manage without His
grace.
"Freedom Five" is an initiative
produced by the National Day of
Prayer Task Force that chal-
lenges Americans to pray for our
country for five minutes every
day about five centers of power:
Government, Media, Education,
Church, and Family. The task
force states, "By targeting these
specific areas, America can expe-
rience the freedom that accom-
panies God's power."

Carey returned to First Coast
Highway, where his car was dis-
abled by "stop sticks" that were
placed on the road by law enforce-
ment officers to flatten the tires on
his vehicle.
According to police, Carey lost
control of the car and hit a nearby
car, but continued driving and
attempted to turn onto Plantation
Oaks Lane when he hit another
vehicle that was stopped at a stop
sign.
Police say Carey then left the
vehicle, ran into the back yard of a

and attempted to hide in a thicket
of palmetto bushes.
Police arrested Carey and
reportedly located a cigarette box
containing suspected crack cocaine
near the palmetto bushes where
Carey had been hiding and a mar-
ijuana cigarette in the front driver's
seat of Carey's vehicle.
No one was injured in the inci-
dent.
Carey was taken into custody
and transported to the Nassau
County Jail. His bond is $250,002.

News-Leader 'YVno don't have tn aet


In this world of rapidly advancing
technology, the answers to almost
anything one could possibly won-
der about are only as far away as
the nearest Internet connection.
Unfortunately, that holds true
for criminals as well, and the devel-
opment of the World Wide Web has
ushered in a significant increase in
crimes of identity theft. According to
the Federal Trade Commission, 9.9
million Americans were victims of
identity theft last year, costing con-
sumers approximately $5 billion."
"Identity theft is getting to be a
pretty big problem," said Lt. Greg
Foster of the Nassau County
Sheriffs Office, who estimates that
the Internet is a factor in anywhere
from 30 to 40 percent of identity
theft cases locally.
Lt Jim Coe of the Fernandina
Beach Police Department often
gives presentations to local organi-
zations on the dangers of identity
theft, which he says has been steadi-
ly on the rise for the past 15 years.
"In the past, if you wanted to
steal money you would go get a gun
and a mask, but now you don't have
to get a gun," he said. "You can do
it from the privacy of your laptop."
Identity theft can take many
shapes, but essentially when some-
one uses the personal information of
someone else for fraudulent pur-
poses, identity theft has been com-
mitted.
Consumers use the Internet to
buy anything from clothes to plane
tickets to prescription drugs, and
that means they are typing their
credit card numbers and other per-
sonal information into their com-
puter on a regular basis. And while
Internet shopping can be done safe-
ly, Foster says there are some pre-
cautions that should be taken.
He says people should unplug
their Internet connection when
they're not using it, and consumers
should research companies they do
business with online. "Watch who
you're using over the Internet,"
Foster said. "If you haven't heard
of the company, do some research."
The danger is not just on the
Internet Personal information given


a gun. You can do it
from the privacy of
your laptop.'

Mail can be stolen from mail-
-'t"S arid used by identity,thieves.
to gain access to all kinds of per-
sonal information. Fernandina
Beach Postmaster Ron Steedley rec-
ommends that people deposit out-
going mail in the blue, U.S. Postal
Service collection boxes and that
they not leave mail in their mailbox
overnight or on weekends.
A Fernandina Beach resident
has recently been investigating the
possibility that she may be a victim
of identity theft
Betty (her last name is being
withheld to protect her privacy) said
last summer she began noticing
slits, approximately a half-inch long,
in the envelopes containing her
credit card bills. She said her other
mail, at first, would arrive intact
Later, other envelopes began to
have the same kind of slit, including
some of her cell phone bills, her
husband's credit card bill and a let-
ter she received from the Social
Security Administration.
She notified Steedley, the Federal
Bureau of Investigation and her
credit card and cell phone compa-
nies, and she has had a fraud alert
on her files with the three main cred-


it bureaus.
"I'm sort of waiting to see what
happens from here," she said. "... I
just know the facts, I don't know
who's doing it or what's doing it ...
whafs bothered me is the selectiv-
ity of it."
Steedley said the incidents
involving the woman have been
investigated, but it's unlikely this
case is identity theft because the
slits are so small and usually mail is
altogether stolen in cases of identi-
ty theft through postal mail.
He doesn't blame Betty for her
concern. "It can be scary," he said;,
"... and (identity theft) is truly some-
thing that we really want people to
be aware of."
The danger of identity theft
extends beyond financial loss, said
Coe, who recalled a case in
Fernandina Beach in which a man
was arrested for a crime that had
been committed by someone using
his identity.
"When your personal liberty is
threatened due to identity theft,
that's when the situation can really
become a nightmare," Coe said.
Coe said he advises people to be
vigilant and aware of the growing
threat of identity theft. Shredding
paperwork containing personal
information, checking monthly cred-
it, card and bank statements and
leaving home with only the mini-
mum number of credit cards nec-
essary are a few things people can
do to minimize their chances of
becoming victims of identity theft.
'There's always going to be a
criminal element," Coe said. "... Ifs
very important for every individual
to be vigilant."

Tractor-trailer is separated


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
A tractor became separated
from its trailer Friday morning at
a traffic light on the corner of
Eighth and Beech streets.
According to Fernandina
Beach Police Officer Marty Scott,
a pin that connects the cab of
the truck and the trailer was miss-
ing, and as the driver began to
pull away from the traffic light the
trailer loaded with 35,000
pounds of cargo fell onto the


HA


ground.
"It was fortunate for him (the
trailer) came loose when it did and
not when it was on the road," Scott
said. "You have to be thankful for
that."
No one was injured in the
incident, which happened around
10 a.m., but an officer from
the Florida Department of
Transportation did issue two
citations to the driver of the vehi-
cle.
Calvin Jerome Morris, 44, of
Atlantic Beach was driving the


tractor to the Port of Fernandina
Beach, Scott said.
The incident caused approxi-
mately $5,500 damage to the road-
way and $3,500 to the vehicle.
Morris was cited for not prop-
erly securing the trailer to the cab
of the truck and for having defec-
tive tires.
Scott said the cargo did not
include any hazardous materials
and was retrieved with a forklift. A
local towing company removed
the vehicle from the road.

to control the whole team."
Three juveniles, ages 17, 13 and
11, were injured in the incident.
Nassau County Fire-Rescue work-

Georgia hospital.

juveniles are believed to have
been involved in the altercation,
but no arrests have been made
yet.

gotten first names and nicknames
... but we don't have the full names
we need to identify a suspect and
get a warrant."
According to the police report,
the main aggressors are believed
to have been juveniles.

New data on sex offender web site


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist and Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
Commissioner Guy Tunnell
unveiled Thursday an enhanced
state web site feature that for the
first time lets parents and other
Floridians zero in on registered sex
offenders and predators who live
nearby.
The sexual offender website,
which is maintained by FDLE, now
offers the ability for citizens to more
easily identify sexual predators and
offenders living in or around their
specific neighborhood or local
schools.
With almost 35,000 registered
sex offenders and predators, the
FDLE database is one of the largest
of its kind in the nation. Over the
past 10 years, FDLE has provided a
website giving Floridians the abili-
ty to search for sex offenders by
zip code, county, city or name. The
updated site now includes a
NeighborhoodTrac search system
developed by Pitney Bowes to give
pa ntsnd othiem t ao ortargeted

search area ranging up to five miles.
This new feature, which will
allow parents to search specific
areas near their home, child's
school or neighborhood park,
should greatly assist parents who
are trying to protect their children,
said Crist.
The improvements to the web-
site are the result of a new software
program recently donated to the
state of Florida by Pitney Bowes.
The software, called the Group 1
NeighborhoodTrac Family
Protection System, makes it much
easier for Florida parents to identi-
fy registered sex offenders and


predators living within a five-mile
radius of any specific location.
The enhanced website also
offers an option for users to gener-
ate a map of each sex offender's
registered address, providing par-
ents and children with a quick and
more visual way to identify where
sex offenders live nearby.
The web site enhancements may
be accessed through the Attorney
General's home page at myflorida

at www.fdle.state.fl.us. These links

County third graders



score well on FCAT


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Nassau County students have
scored higher than most other
school districts in Florida on the
reading and math portion of the
Florida Comprehensive
Achievement Test (FCAT) for
third-grade students.
The districtwide average score
in reading was 323 and for math
the average score was 333 (tests
are scored on a scale of 100-500),
topping statewide averages of 305
in reading and 317 in math.
"We're very pleased with the


performance of the students this
year," said Nassau County Schools
Superintendent John Ruis. "We
expected them to do well, but of
course you never know until the
scores are released."
Of 67 school districts in the
state, only seven scored higher
than Nassau County in the math
portion.
In the reading portion, Nassau
County third graders scored high-
er than all but five districts.
Scores this year are up from
last year, and Ruis said Nassau
County FCAT scores have steadi-


ly increased:since 2002.
"We started a long time ago try-
ing to gear our instruction to the
Florida Sunshine State Standards,
which is what the FCAT is based
on," he said. "We've developed a
good methodology and a good
strategy ... and I think our teachers
and our students have done a super
job."
Reading and math FCAT scores
for students in fourth through 10th
grades are next to be released,
according to the Florida
Department of Education.

School impact fee


to be addressed


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
A much-debated school impact
fee may soon become a reality for
new construction in Nassau
County. Members of the Nassau
County School Board discussed
the progress of the proposed ordi-
nance at their May 12 meeting.
School Superintendent John
Ruis told board members the ordi-
nance has been drafted and is
being reviewed by County'
Attorney Michael Mullin.
"We're moving along at a rapid
pace with this, and we need to,"
Ruis said.
Following the review by Mullin.
public hearings will be scheduled.
The Nassau County Board of
Commissioners is expected to vote
in June on whether to levy the pr:o-
posed S3,7213 impact fee for all new
construction in Nassau County.
School board members favor


the fee, saying the additional
income will help fund new Nassau
County schools that will be neces-
sary as the area's population
grows.
At the meeting, board member
Janet Adkins said surrounding
school districts are dealing with
the issue of population growth as
well, .
"Everyone I've talked to has
either already dealt with it, is
already in the middle of it, or is
just about to deal with it" she said.
Also at the meeting, Ruis
praised the scores Nassau County
students have made on this year's
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test. Nassau FCAT
scores so far have been some of the
highest in the state.
"It's been a long year and peo-
ple have worked really hard and it's
just nice to see the fruits of their
labor," Ruis said.

... ...repeated driving vio-
lations will serve 45 days in
jail but won't have to sit out
any games. Georgia head
coach Mark Richt said DT
Darrius Swain will serve
penalty enough in the pokey.
Shortly after the arrest,
Richt told the AP, "With the
time in confinement, Darrius
is paying a heavy price for his
license violations." Translated
from coach speak to English,
this means: "With David
Pollack graduating, we're
already thin on the defensive
line. We play South Carolina
right off the bat and I'll be
darned if I'll subject myself to
another beating by a Steve
Spurrier-coached team."
Looking on the bright side
of Swain's jail sentence, he
should have plenty of time to
work out...
Police arrested and jailed
Ohio State kicker Jonathan
Skeete Wednesday and
charged him with trafficking
in marijuana. What a shame,
because I hear Skeete was a
"smoking" hot prospect. In
fact, the "buzz" was that he
might have challenged for the
starting role next fall. Looks
like he "burned" that oppor-
tunity ...
Burger King has signed a

Here's to hoping the NFL

sandwich...
University of Florida head
football coach Urban Meyer
has banned his players from
the team locker room during
the summer and has told
them not to wear anything
"Gator" until they earn it
back. Meyer reportedly feels
the players have taken the
program for granted recently
and wants them to feel what
it's like to be on the outside
looking in.
Many outside the Gator
Nation have taken this oppor-
tunity to declare Meyer a lit-
tle over the top. But most of
those people haven't been
named National College
Coach of the Year the past
two seasons, either...
A fan in Oakland threw a
beer at Yankees slugger
Jason Giambi last Saturday
night, reportedly knocking
the player to the ground.
OK, so Giambi didn't fall
down, he just got a little wet.
But as small as he's gotten
since quitting the perform-
ance-enhancing drugs he
supposedly never used, it
probably wouldn't take much
more than a 12-ounce brews-
ki missile to knock him
around...
Speaking of Giambi, the
once mighty home run hitter
is now batting a measly .200
with just three dingers and
only six RBI on the season,
prompting management to
try to reassign him to Triple-
A to work out his kinks.
Giambi, in a typically selfish
move, refused reassignment.
If I'm New York manager Joe
Torre, I sit the millionaire
baby on the bench until he
takes the minor league
assignment. He'd be about as
productive on the bench as
he's been on the field so far
this season...
If you've bought into the
whole Matt Jones first round
draft "gamble" made by the
Jacksonville Jaguars last
month, which I have to admit
I have, you might want to visit
the team's official web site to
pick up a No. 18 jersey before
next season. I don't remem-
ber many R. Jay Soward jer-

OUTDOORS


Find grass,





catch fish


the shallow mud
creek where small-
er feeders fed and
harbored small ponds of water.
Some of the small ponds were
within casting distance but put
walls of marsh grasses between
Chuck Howard, my son, Terry
David Lacoss, and me.
This didn't stop Terry David
from making a long cast back
into a small pond where it
seemed ultimately impossible to
catch a fish, much less reel the
hooked fish to the boat through
the walls of marsh grass that sep-
arated fishermen from Louisiana
redfish.
"You are simply crazy,"
Florida's Chuck Howard told
Terry David. "You will never land
a fish from that tangle of marsh
grasses!"
Discarding the expert advice,
Terry David made a long cast
way back into a small puddle of
water with his redfish plug.
Seconds after engaging his fish-
ing reel, a nice redfish'gobbled
up his lure and quickly buried its
head into a thick stand of nearby
marsh.
However, Terry David had
the upper hand as his redfish
reel was spooled with braided
Power Pro fishing line, which
was certainly tough enough for
any redfish.
He began working his stout
redfish rod tip this way and that
and soon freed the tiring redfish
from the stand of grass. His next
obstacle in landing the red was a
thick wall of marsh grass that
stood between the angler and the
fish. Terry David reeled his red
right into the grass and began an
almost impossible task of reeling
in his catch through the millions
of tangles. However, after five
minutes of fighting the red in the
deep spartina grasses, Terry
Davidwas able to~claim his :
catch!
Boy, isn't this typical of red
fishing? Reds will often find the
most remote shallow water hole
to not only find their favorite din-
ner of crabs but to also avoid
their main predator, dolphin.
We were actually fishing in.

es were somewhat of a bother as
our redfish hooks became tans

when our lures were fishedtoo
deep. But we weren't complain-
ing; the red fishing was as good
as it gets.
I can safely say that Louisiana
has test red fishing out of all
the major Southern states,
including Texas and Florida.
Florida used to have a variety
of grasses growing along the bot-
tom in many of the Sunshine
State's redfish destinations until
water and air pollution began
killing off the grasses. Bottom
grasses are the main factor Amelfor
survival for marine plankton
right up to large game fish.
Grassese willonly grow along the
bottom when large concentra-l

Air pollution is also a major
culprit as rain absorbs chemicals
in the air, which pollutes the
water too. Boaters are also
killing bottom grasses and our
fishing too by cleaning their
boats at their docks with strong

rust and stains.
A local crabber once told me
recently that the redfish are so
thick, they are eating all of the
blue crabs that he was trying to
trap. I think if the truth were to
be told, there are certainly not as
many redfish as there were five
fishing seasons ago and, if the
grasses would return, so would
the crabs and the redfish.

officials need to know that water

than most people think.

Special-opportunity hunts
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission will
accept applications through June
15 for 2005-2006 special-opportu-
nity hunts.
Applying for these unique
hunts now is automated through
FWC's Total Licensing System.
To apply for these permits, visit
any license agent or tax collec-
tor's office or submit an applica-
tion online at MyFWC.com.
Applications are available from
FWC regional offices and online
at MyFWC.com.
Special-opportunity hunts
offer hunters vast areas, abun-
dant game, low hunter quotas
and excellent chances to bag
quality deer, hogs and released
quail on select wildlife manage-
ment areas throughout Florida.
Based on past years, demand,
for these hunts is greater than
the number of available slots, so
a random drawing is conducted
to select hunters. Hunters can
improve their chances of being
selected by submitting as many
non-refundable $5 applications as
they want. The cost of the hunts
for selected applicants ranges
from $50 to $175.

There is girl talk and
there is guy talk. Guy
talk is usually about golf,
football or basketball
and, sometimes, about fishing.
Girl talk is about important
things. You know, the best place
for a manicure, sure-fire ways to
lose weight and hormone replace-
ment. Things that matter.
A group of women recently
gathered on a porch on the edge
of the sea. A soft breeze was
blowing, cooling us as we sipped

We have all found ourselves

the stress of careers and childrea-
ring is behind us. Our current

We
come from

with differ-

downs. Some still work. Some are
committed volunteers. We learn
from each other. We teach each
other. We help each other.
There is something about
being on the other side of 60. We
all agree we have earned some
good times and enjoy them with
gusto. We worry less and less
about how we look or what we
have. What is more important is
how we feel and how we make
other people feel. There are so
many things we don't have to do
anymore, and we smile patiently
as our children fuss about car
pools, house payments, sassing
kids, managing too many things
in too little time. We have been

To the woman we are thankful
for the beautiful place we live and
for our health (more or less). We
are able to laugh about the bat-
tles we fight daily with arthritis,
skin cancer and weight. Some of
our battles are more serious and
cause us to be even more thank-
ful for the good things in life and
our "girlfriends."
Yes, we are getting older but
not old! To the woman we work at
our tennis and golf games and
push ourselves to read books
beyond the usual beach reads.
We strive to make the best of our
talents and give to our communi-
ties.


We agree that age and how we
look at it is funny. When we are
little, we measure each year in
increments. You ask a small child
how old he is and he proudly
says, "I'm 4 and a half."
Remember how long those years
between birthday parties used to
be? Ask a teenager how old he is
and you will find him eager to be
grown-up, probably saying,
"Almost 16." Almost 16 is proba-
bly closer to 14. Now we count in
'ishes. Like 60ish.
There is one thing for sure.
Girlfriends are to be treasured no
matter their age!
