Crane Island moves a step' closer


County urges city to act


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
Crane Island's developers want
to submit applications to Nassau
County by June 30, but'the county
will wait on Fernandina Beach
Commissioners to make the first
move.
County commissioners urged
city commissioners in a joint meet-
ing Monday to decide whether to
annex the controversial develop-
ment into Fernandina Beach.


Marina


project


short of


money

MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
The city may delete parts of its
downtown marina improvement
project or spend a portion of Egans
Creek Greenway bond funds on
marina work as costs are now pro-
jected to exceed 8$4 million.
"If all projects contemplated are
approved, and the cost estimates
aDc closul accuateL the expen-se
will exceed la .4 million line of
credit) by S198.5(00." City' Manager
Bob Mearns wrote Fernandina
Beach Commissiopers on Friday.
"Therefore, one or more com-
ponent projects must be deleted
from the priority list," Mearns
wrote, or the greenway bond must
be tapped "to pay for all or part of
the (marina) decking as it is actu-
ally a passive public recreation
area."
There is $1.2 million remaining
in the greenway bond fund, which
was approved by voters at $6 mil-
lion to purchase land and provide
amenities for the greenway.
Mearns also said that if the
marina boat ramp remains open,
that could save about $250,000
earmarked for its closure though
the city would have to return to the
state $100,000 received for that proj-
ect.
The city commission was sched-
uled to debate the boat ramp clo-
sure Tuesday night It voted May
11 to close the boat ramp, but pub-
lic opposition has surfaced since.
Commissioners earlier voted to
take out a $4 million line of credit

City commissioners will meet

tion is a "critical piece of the puzzle"
for the county.
"We need to know before we
make our decision," County

Hotel


back on


agenda

News-Leader
The city's Planning Advisory
Board will consider tonight approval
of an 83-room three-story hotel on
Sadler Road and a 230-unit "resort-
style" condominium project on Amelia
Island Parkway.,
City Planning Supervisor Lupita
McClenning told planning board
members the hotel project with-
drawn after public opposition earlier
this year now meets city criteria.
She has objected to the condo proj-
ect, writing that it is not a compatible
use given that it is surrounded by
land zoned for indu-sri purposes.
The Planning Addiso y Board is
scheduled to meet at 6 p.m. at City
Hall, 204 Ash St. Public comment is
accepted.
. The primary obstacle to develop-
ment of the proposed hotel has been
that 1.76 acres of the site is wetlands.
But a consultant hired by the appli-
cant, Noel Nassau LLC, has conclud-
ed the wetlands is "of no significant
functional value," which allows it to be
developed under city law.
The city rejected a hotel on that
site, across from the Best Western
Inn, in 1997.
Summer Beach Development
Group Ltd. has asked for a zoning
and land use change to allow it to
develop condos on the northwest cor-
ner of the intersection of Amelia
Island Parkway and Lynndale Road.
That 23-acre property is currently
zoned industrial.
McClenning objected to the pro-
posal because of industrial develop-
ment surrounding the site and
because of additional traffic conges-
tion on the parkway.
"Land in such close proximity to
the airport and aircraft operations
should not be residential and is appro-
priately designated for industrial use
to support the airport," she wrote.


Asbestos in buildings used for training?


FILlE PHOTO
Law enforcement officers battered a hole into a building at
Summer Woods Apartments during a training exercise in
February.


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
An abandoned apartment com-
plex used for law enforcement and
fire-rescue training earlier this year
may contain asbestos, according
to the state Department of
Environmental Protection.
Area firefighters and police offi-
cers used the former Summer
Woods Apartments on Sabal Palm
.Drive for training in February.
Throughout the training, the build-
ings were burned and hit with
explosives.
"It was a valuable experience,"
said Nassau County Fire-Rescue
Chief Chuck Cooper. "... It exceed-
ed all our expectations of training."
But according to a letter sent to
the property's project manager,
Dennis Jasinsky, from the DEP, a
March 25 inspection of the prop-
erty indicated required asbestos


'There was no hazard, we put nobody in danger.
... Don't want there to be any doom and
gloom and people thinking they were harmed.'
NASSAU COUNTY FIRE CHIEF CHUCK COOPER


removal may not have been per-
formed prior to the training.
Jasinsky said he allowed the
training to take place. He said he
wasn't sure whether asbestos
removal was performed before the
training.
Federal regulations require that
asbestos-containing materials be
removed from a structure before it
is "demolished by intentional burn-
ing," according to the letter.
"We're not sure there were any
violations," said DEP
Environmental Manager Rick


Banks. "... We sent out the warning
letter because we want to get
everyone together and get all the
facts."
Banks said DEP officials would
meet with Jasinsky and represen-
tatives from the emergency serv-
ices agencies involved in the train-
ing, but a date for the meeting has
not been set.
"We understand there was
asbestos in the building, but we
don't know what was done and

COUNTY Continued from 1A
Commissioner Jim B. Higginboth-
am told city commissioners.
It was later decided that both
the county and city would com-
pose separate plans on how to pro-
ceed, then compare the two at a
future meeting.
Hligginbothanm urged the city
to proceed with its memorandum
of understanding and resolve
annexation and.road issues before
the county takes any steps to
approve the development.
"It's critical that what we look
.i .1- .ir .is units and the conmpre-
hensive plan is what the city will
accept," he said.
Both commissions agreed that
another joint nmeting would be
held in the futui i to di.c.ss CCriui,
Island, but a date was not set
Amelia Island Company
President Jack B. Healan Jr. said
Monday night he is comfortable
with decisions made.
"It's a step in the direction we
requested," he said. "At least we
have a format to move forward."
Prior to the meeting, Healan
and Vince Graham, president of
Crane Island's developer Civitas,
made a presentation of plans for
the proposed 169-unit develop-
ment
"We believe (Crane Island) will
be developed, with less or more
than this number of units, and this
will be a treasure for both
Fernandina Beach and Nassau
County," Healan said.
Healan highlighted Amelia
Island Co.'s plan to transfer 128
previously approved but undevel-
oped units at Amelia Island
Plantation's Long Point commu-
nity to the Crane Island develop-
ment
Healan said transferring devel-
opment rights would allow Crane
Island to have 169 total units with-
out changing the "conservation"
designation of the island's zoning
in the county's comprehensive
plan.
That zoning designation is the
subject of pending litigation
between the owners and the coun-
ty. Without the transfer of units
from Long Point, Civitas would
be allowed a maximum of 44 units
if the island remains a designated
conservation area.
Healan also said plans are
under way for Amelia Island
Plantation to purchase the lease
on Royal Amelia golf course and
build a new clubhouse. The devel-
opment would include a 90-slip
marina and set aside a five-acre
park for public access to the
Amelia River.
The island's developers also
have received permits from the
Department of Transportation .
andthe Federal Aviation Authority
for the permanent easement
through Fernandina Beach
Municipal Airport property.
Included in that agreement,
said Healan, is the condition that
Crane Island residents will waive
the right to complain or take
action against the airport regard-
ing noise or other nuisances asso-
ciated with the airport.

In Memory of

Although it has been a year since you went away
It really only seems like yesterday,
Your death was so unexpected and sudden
It left us with grief and hearts broken,
The grieving continues on
And the tears flow when we think ofyou through a song,
You brought us happiness hope and joy
To some of us ever since you were just a boy,
You had a special place in our family with alot of love
Now when we think of you, it's as an angel above.
As life goes on and we think ofyou to reminisce
You will always be in our hearts and greatly missed,
There's no other way these feelings can be put to say how
much we loved that special guy nicknamed "Peanut"
Wife, Shannon
The Wilder and VanBeek Families


homes will be limited to accom-
modate a nearby runway, and
each home will be designed with
noise reduction technology. He
also assured the commissions that
the approach to the instrument
runway at the city airport won't
pass over the developed area of
the island, and pointed out that
the city golf course and Simmons
Cove currently lie closer to the
airport runways than Crane
Island.
Healan added that the primary
benefit to the community will be
millions of dollars in tax revenue
and impact fees which will bene-
fit the county and city, especially
local schools. He said the "upscale
demographic" of Crane Island
would pour millions of dollars in
taxes to local schools, without
impacting them with many new
students.
About 100 residents packed
the city commission room for
Monday's meeting. However,
many were disappointed to learn
that not only would they not be
able to speak, they would not be
able to hear.
There were no microphones
for the commissioners who sat in
a roundtable format at the front of
the room, and audience members
asked several times for them to
speak up.
"They do themselves a dis-
service by not making sure those
present can hear whats going on,"
said Amelia Island resident Tom
Orr after the meeting. "If you don't
hear the talk across the table,
you're only getting part of the pic-
ture."
Others grumbled when told
by the meeting's chair, County
Commissioner Jim Higginbotham,
that no one but Healan and Gray
would be allowed to speak at the
meeting.
Robert Weintraub of the East
Nassau Homeowners' Council
had prepared a statement in oppo-
sition to the transfer of develop-
ment rights from Amelia Island
Plantation to Crane Island.
That statement questions the
legality oftransferring the devel-
opment rights, which he main-
tains expired in 1999.
County commissioners first
approved, then rejected develop-
ment plans for Crane Island last
year after public opposition and
differing views about whether the
island can be'densely developed
given the Future Land Use Map
designation.

14th Street annex sale moves forward


BENJAMIN PRICE
News-Leader
County property that once
housed the 14th Street annex appar-
ently will be put up for sale.
Nassau County and Fernandina
Beach commissioners approved a
joint motion Monday to have their
respective attorneys modify an exist-
ing agreement to pay for a new
building on the site to house offices
for county constitutional officers.
The city was to fork over $1 mil-
lion toward the cost of replacing the
63-year-old structure, site of a former
hospital. The building requires
asbestos removal, and it has been
considered too expensive to reno-
vate.
There also has been an effort to
build a new Fernandina Beach

missioners objected.
"We can't do that," Mayor Ken
Walker said, adding that a special
city meeting may be required.
"We'll have to have public input."
Although the Monday meeting
was open to the public, citizens who
packed the city commission cham-
bers to standing-room-only were
not allowed to address officials.
"What happens if the city
decides not to annex Crane Island?"
City Commissioner Joe Gerrity
asked Amelia Island Co. President
Jack Healan?
"Certainly, we would proceed
with the county," Healan said.

a new library and performing arts
theater were revealed last year, and
Friends of the Library have begun
raising funds for the new building.
The first floor was to house a new
library, the second the constitutional
offices.
But County Administrator Mike
Mahaney said the county would now
rather sell the building and use the
revenue to pay for capital expenses
for public safety, such as emergency
radios, "rescue units and fire
trucks."
Mahaney said modifying the
agreement to allow the county to
sell the property would bring much-
needed revenue, and added, "I don't
think Fernandina Beach wants to
put up a million bucks."
The 14th Street annex is now


"If the city gives the road, they
have to annex (Crane Island) in,"
County Commissioner Ansley
Acree said.
Annexation will not determine
if the city provides utility services,
City Manager Bob Mearns said,
confirming that Crane Island sits
within the city's service area.
"Either way, the city will have
to provide" water and sewer to the
island, he said, though Crane Island
resident would pay higher fees for
those services if the development
remains in the county.
"I don't know where in the world
your economic thinking could be
if you're not in favor of this," Vice
Mayor Beano Roberts said, pre-


vacant It previously housed offices
for the county supervisor of elec-
tions, tax collector and property
appraiser, which moved to the
Nassau County Government
Complex on Nassau Place in Yulee.
The clerk of courts office moved
from the Nassau County Court-
house on Centre Street to the new
Nassau County Judicial Annex off
William Burgess Blvd. in Yulee. That
freed up space for offices housing
elections, tax collector and proper-
ty appraiser services.
Constitutional officers retain
offices in the historic courthouse,
although most primarily use their
offices in Yulee. City Commissioner
Joe Gerrity asked for clarification
on that issue, stating that he thought
the primary offices had to be in the
county seat of Fernandina Beach.


sending his own breakdown of pro-
jected impact fees and a reduced
ad valorem tax rate to illustrate that
a Crane Island development would
benefit the city.
Roberts, who lauded Amelia
Island Plantation as "environmen-
tally sensitive," said he approves of
the company's partnership with
Civitas, the development company
for Crane Island. Amelia Island
Plantation proposes to purchase the
lease for the Royal Amelia Golf
course, located on ciWairport prop-
erty, to create a riverfront develop-
ment.
"I can't imagine anyone deciding
not to annex (Crane Island) into
the city," Roberts said.


County Attorney Mike Mullin
said the law states elected officials
must have "offices" in the county
seat, but it does not state they have
to be "primary offices."
"(The law) makes no determi-
nation of size, or whether it has to be
larger or smaller than the branch
offices," Mullin said.
County Commissioner Tom
Branan noted the historic court-
house is designated as the primary
courthouse and that the new court-
house is the "judicial annex."
A motion to modify the agree-
ments to allow for the sale was
approved. Gerrity cast the lone dis-
senting vote.
The motion was made at a joint
local planning agency meeting
between the city and county com-
missions Monday.


A memorandum of understand-
ing "would be a framework of how
we would go forward with each
entity," said Healan, who requested
officials draft the document so that
developers can file applications by
June 30.
But the city and county should
work separately to draft agree-
ments, County Attorney Mike
Mullin said.
"It would seem to me more pru-
dent to have each body develop a
draft (memorandum of under-
standing) and see where there is
commonality," he said. "It makes it
more legally cumbersome to sit
here and do it with everybody
together."

"This will be a greatly needed

A financial journalist with more

VIEWPOINT/PREsLEY HOLLNGSWORTH/REALTOR

Opening door to home ownership


From inspiration to reali-
ty here's the key.
The National
Association of Realtors
designates June as National
Homeownership Month. Not
another reason to send a card or
flowers, this designation repre-
sents the aspirations of millions
of Americans unlocking the
door of their very own resi-
dence.
Regardless of the physical
structure single-family home,
condominium, townhouse,
duplex, farm, beach cottage -
the dream, hope and excitement
of ownership extends far beyond
four walls!
"Open The Door" is this
year's home ownership month
theme. Just another catchy slo-
gan? Actually, this brief phrase
embodies the joyous result of a
realtor's experience, enthusiasm
and efforts in assisting people in
turning their vision into reality.
Although national homeowner-
ship month last for only 30 days,
the Amelia Island-Nassau
County Association of Realtors'
commitment to promoting home
ownership is ongoing. The


surge of new and existing sales
continues, due to high demand,
still low mortgage rates, an
increased market for second
homes, a more diverse home-
buyer and newly-emerging
household market of Generation
Xers.
Local realtors have ample
opportunities here in Nassau
County to transform a prospec-
tive purchaser's ideas into a
solid structure. We can access a
varied inventory of both new
developments and existing resi-
dences.

includes various financial institu-
tions who assist our purchasers
in securing the right financing
package. We also count expert
appraisers, home inspectors,
title companies and providers of
other services on our roster.
Our realtors participate in
continuing education for both
professional and personal
enrichment. These courses pro-
vide realtors with a broad range
of information beneficial for
prospective homebuyers. Chief
among these courses is the
mandatory code of ethics train-


ing, the professional standards
to which all realtors must
adhere. Other courses offer a
broad range of subjects, to
enhance a realtor's knowledge
and ability.
Assisting you in finding your
dream home is our members'
commitment Continuous educa-
tion, in-depth knowledge of our
area and a genuine desire to
help are our trademarks. We
work hard to find what you're
looking for, and help you in

ultimate goal, and our greatest
joy.

Read the fine print


on credit card flyers


To avoid finding yourself sud-
denly subject to new credit card
terms, the Florida Institute of
Certified Public Accountants rec-
ommends that you carefully
read the fine print in the flyers
periodically inserted in credit card
statements. Here are the basic
elements of a credit card agree-
ment:
Interest rate Credit card
companies typically disclose the
interest rate as an annual per-
centage rate (APR). Some lenders
charge a fixed APR, while the
interest rate on a variable rate
rises and falls based on an index,
such as the prime rate. Many
cards charge different APRs for
purchases, cash advances and bal-
ance transfers. Other cards
have a low "introductory rate" that
rises dramatically after a few
months.
Grace period The grace
period is the time between when
you charge a purchase and when
you begin to pay interest on that
charge. The standard is 25 days,
but some credit card companies
are reducing that number. If your
credit card company does not
offer a grace period, you will pay
interest on your purchases even if
you pay your balance in full each
month.
Annual Fees Some credit
card companies charge a flat
annual fee for using their card.
For consumers who regularly
carry a balance, a card with an
annual fee and a low interest
rate may be better than a card
with no annual fee and a high
interest rate. Credit card holders
who pay off their balance each
month should look for a card
with no annual fee, since the inter-


-IV


est rate doesn't matter.
Late payment fees With
some cards your payment has to
be received not only by a certain
date, but also by a certain time,
such as 5 p.m. or the close of the
business day EST, in order to
avoid a late fee.
Over-the-limit fee Many
credit card companies charge you
a fee for exceeding your credit
limit, even in cases where they
authorize the transaction.
Cash advance terms Credit
card companies typically charge a
fee equal to 2-4 percent of the
amount advanced. Cash advances
carry a higher interest rate and
there's no grace period.
You start accruing interest
charges as soon as you make the
transaction.
Balance transfer fees -
Before transferring a balance to
your credit card, ask if there is a
fee.
A balance transfer fee can
often wipe out any interest rate
advantage.
Currency conversion -
Many companies are raising the
typical fee for overseas transac-
tions.
Credit purity Lenders rou-
tinely scan credit reports, and if
your payment to one company is
late, you may find your APR has
increased on credit cards totally
unrelated to the company that
received the late payment.
Perks Many credit cards
allow you to earn cash back, free
airline miles or other bonuses by
using your card.
High interest rates and annu-
al fees can end up costing
you more than the value of the
perks.

Tax cut better than upholstered chair


Nassau County's financial
woes have been docu-
mented so often and so
thoroughly that you
could practically fill up a bank
vault with the newspaper articles
and municipal files.
The fire department's over-
time budget is depleted for this
year. The long-term debts and the
operating budget are greater than
the incoming revenues, forcing
the county each year to dip into
funds targeted for other purposes
and commitments.
The emergency radio system
is apparently so outdated and inef-
fective that it sounds and works
more like a ham radio than a fine-
ly tuned response system. The
county's roads need repair, the
landfill is filling up and new resi-
dents want new services.
So what does the county do?
Go out and spend $100,000 on
new furniture, of course. The fur-
niture will be part of the renova-
tions at the new home of the
county commission. Other fea-
tures will include a $3,500 high-
definition television with a 61-inch
screen, assorted computer gad-
getry and high-backed chairs for
commissioners and ergonomical-
ly correct seating for residents.
Commissioners are passing it
off as a convenience and service.
to residents attending their meet-
ings. C'mon now. If you really
want to make residents comfort-
able, how about cutting their
taxes? That would make them
rest easier than a $160 uphol-
stered chair that is often empty.

PLACE ly is to
increase taxes
and fees. This is sort of like going
out and redoing your entire living
room on a credit card.
The overhaul is immediate,
but the bill is lasting. It shows up

eyeballing not only a 5-cent gas
tax, but also a tax to save the fire
department And then officials are
hinting at needing a long-term
bond issue if a grant to pay for the
emergency radio system does not
materialize.

No more Mr. Nice Guy
At last, Fernandina Beach city
officials are taking a stand.
They are holding firm on their


decision to halt construction on
the trio of towering houses along
South Fletcher Avenue. The case
is coming before a judge, who will
issue a decision.
Some are saying that since the
city issued the building permits, it
has little legal ground to stand on.
That's not necessarily true. If the
city finds the construction of a
building is not going as planned
or anticipated, it has the right to
halt construction to look into it.
Also, if information furnished
to the city on a building applica-
tion was either erroneous or mis-
leading, this is also grounds for
halting construction. Local build-
ing officials in the city and county
cannot do exhaustive studies into
every application that comes
before them.
They have to rely on informa-
tion on an application to be accu-
rate. If you apply for insurance, or
a driver's license, or a mortgage,
or a job, the information is
screened for accuracy, but a thor-
ough study is not done. There has
to be some reliance on the infor-
mation being correct
The city is basically contend-
ing that liberties were taken in
the building process. It is obvious
that something is different with
those three houses than the oth-
ers along the beach.


Even if the city loses the rul-
ing, it has at least stepped up and
made a point in terms of principle.

A breath of fresh (ocean) air?
The commercialization of
Sadler Road continues to clash
with the residential growth.adja-
cent to this vital corridor.
Several high-dollar condomini-
um projects are being eyed for
the north side of the road, with
entrances adjoining the road.
Meanwhile, on the south end, an
attempt at putting in a major hotel
collapsed after residents rallied in
opposition but has been revived.
The developer/owner of the
Hampton Inn along Sadler tried to
put in something the likes of a
Sheraton hotel almost across the
street. But residents along Ketch
Court and adjacent streets
screamed that the lights and
clamor from the hotel would
intrude on their idyllic lifestyles.
City officials sided with the
residents and did not permit the
zoning changes necessary for a
commercial outlet to be built
there. Now a proposal for a
Fairfield Inn will go before the
city's Planning Advisory Board
tonight Stay tuned.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Ridiculous tax
I can no longer remain silent
With gas prices already soaring
out of control, County Administra-
tor Mike Mahaney has suggested
a 5-cent gas tax to help improve
roads in our county. Has he lost
his mind?
Have our most trustworthy
county commissioners lost their
minds for considering it? I can't
believe what I've been reading
about this issue. Has anybody not
noticed that Nassau County's gas
prices already exceed that of all
our surrounding Florida counties
by as much as 11 cents? Notice, I
did not include Georgia since we
need to compare apples for apples
here.
I make frequent trips to Tampa
and recently did a price comparison
of other counties' gas prices. Using
the same name-brand gas, I found
Nassau County gas prices to be,
on average, seven cents higher
than all others along my route. Now
our commissioners are going to
,consider imposing an additional
five cents to our gas, which would
make our gas, on average, 12 cents
higher then all our surrounding
Florida counties.
I read a viewpoint (May 25) in
this newspaper, in which Mr.
Mahaney contends, "Those of us
who use the roads should pay for
them." Um, Mr. Mahaney, I believe
we are already and have always
been paying for them with a portion
of our property taxes. But unfor-
tunately, some past and present
commissioners felt that our roads
weren't that bad off and "reallocat-
ed" the 0.25 mill tax, designated
for county roads, to pay for other
county crises. Obviously they did
not consider the consequences of
doing that, but then again we have
come to expect that from our com-
missioners.
It was reported'by this newspa-
per that one current county com-
missioner stated he was a Repub-


lican and didn't like raising taxes,
but said if he sees an opportunity to
impose a sales tax he'd rather do
that than increase the ad valorem
tax. OK, what's the difference?
Raising taxes is raising taxes, Mr.
Commissioner. Could this be his
possible logic? Let's see, we could
impose a 0.25 mill increase to our
property taxes, which would be
about $50 for most per year and
raise the same $1.25 million dol-
lars the 5-cent gas tax increase is
projected to raise. Or we could im-
pose the 5-cent gas tax and only
pay the tax when we are unable to
fill up outside our county and are
forced to purchase gas here, and
raise the property taxes later on.
What they fail to mention about
the 5-cent gas tax increase is, not
only will your gas increase, but all
other costs associated with fuel
burn will increase. Think about it
folks, our world revolves around
gas. From our mail being delivered
to our local lawn services. You don't
honestly think local businesses are
going to absorb the increased asso-
ciated with the cost of gas, do you?
So not only would we be paying
more for our gas, we will be paying
more for everything associated
with gas.
The really sad thing is, I sus-
pect that even if this proposed gas
tax passes in lieu of raising prop-
erty taxes, our property taxes will
still be raised next fiscal year and
we will then have the burden of
both taxes. I say enough is enough;
make yourselves be heard at the
Monday public hearing on this mat-
ter and urge your commissioners
not to pass this ridiculous tax.

Two-Step Shuffle'
Vice Mayor Beano Roberts was
quoted May 25 regarding the down-
town boat ramp, "The number of
people who use that boat ramp con-
tribute nothing to the economy of
this city. If it doesn't benefit the city
economically, then I'm notin favor
of it." This same logic used by
Commissioner Roberts then can
be applied to several other city ven-
ues.
For example, the city parks con-
tribute nothing financially to the
city. Alvarez Sports Complex, what
does that contribute financially to
the city? What about the future
"skatepark" that Commissioner
Roberts so strongly supports. What
and how will that financially bene-
fit the city? Makes you wonder.
If the city wants revenue from
the downtown boat ramp, the mari-
na has an office right there to col-
lect a user fee or the city could
charge a yearly pass fee. Makes
you wonder if there is a hidden
agenda, that is to say: no boat ramp,
thus you do not need parking for
vehicles and boat trailers, thus
empty space going to waste, so let's
get a developer to build some 45-
foot condominiums.
Makes you wonder what it
means to say "serving the public"
and what criteria the city commis-
sioners use, especially Commis-
sioner Roberts, in deciding these

Public access denied
Closing of the city boat ramp
would be one more denial of public
access to the public waterway. I
have lived my whole life on this
island. Once, I had boating access
to the water at any of the seven
boat ramps in existence. These
,were found at the following loca-
tions: Fort Clinch; Porter's Fish
Camp (Old Town); 14th Street
bridge; city docks; drawbridge
(Shave Bridge); Walker's Landing;
and the south-end bridge.
Think about it: Before this
island was "discovered" we had
seven locations on this island where
a person could. put a boat in the
water. I will grant you that you had
to know how to get to one, some
were nothing more thafi mud anid

not have to service the population
that we have now. Today, public
access has dwindled to three ramps
to serve a growing population.

Stuck on a


dead-end road

H ere's my two cents worth make it a
nickel on the gas tax that Nassau
County Commissioners may approve
Monday.
First, I don't mind paying the tax if it will be
used to pave, improve or maintain our county
roads, some of which really need attention. I think
those who use the roads, as I do, should pay for
them.
On the other hand, I'm generally opposed to
higher taxes because government is not the best
-ssteward of our money. Most
Americans live beyond
their means, spending
more than they make each
month. But government
lives well beyond its means
primarily because it is liv-
Sing on other people's
money.
That is why, in large
measure, we're facing
financial problems in

NO'E shortfall in landfill financ-
ing now that will require
higher taxes or fees to fix.
Sometimes cutting taxes is shortsighted; some-
body, or somebody's children, will just have to pay'
the bill later.
Smart government might have done a better
job of anticipating the population growth surge
that has created such demand for roads, schools,
fire stations and the like.
Now we're behind the curve and looking at a
gas tax for roads, fire tax for fire stations, landfill
fee increases and probably higher property taxes
just to maintain routine services. The drumbeat of
tax-tax-tax is making all of us more than a little
restless.
What commissioners can't overcome in the
short run despite the best efforts of our new
county administrator, Mike Mahaney is a lack of
trust. That is best symbolized by our new county
courthouse, which is costing us $2.5 million a
year to service the bonds.
That's money that could be used for roads,
emergency radios, the landfill, libraries and the
.like, but we are deprived of it by the need to pay
for that palace in Yulee.
I suppose that's water over the dam. We've got
the courthouse now, and well just have to live
with it And we'll just have to come up with a
means to pay for our other needs.
So be it.
But I'll tell you what sticks in my craw. Lickety-
split development is eating up acres and acres of
Nassau County, increasing demand for services -
and those of us who already live here have to pay
for it.
Some of us can afford it, sure. But many of our
county residents are living paycheck to paycheck,
and that extra nickel a gallon has dire conse-
quences for them. A couple of extra bucks to fill
up the tank makes a real difference in many peo-
ple's lives.
I'm still wailing for comnmisioners to bring to a
vote a higher impact fee on new homes to help
pay for schools, roads and fire stations. Mihainey

The 'New Tax Chorale' is off key


The indignation of Nassau County taxpay-
ers at the suggestion of yet another "new"
tax is palpable and rightly so. County
Administrator Mike Mahaney's essay
(May 25) detailing why, in his opinion, an additional
5-cent gas tax was necessary did little to sway an
exasperated citizenry a citizenry weary of hear-
ing, yet again, that the answer to all of Nassau
County's problems is simply more money.
The issue was given a comedic twist last week
when former Republican chairperson Ed Gandy
joined Mr. Mahaney's "New Tax Chorale," which, so
far at least, is only a duet. His acid-penned letter,
simultaneously trumpeting the "new" tax idea and
attacking my fellow columnist Mike Boyle, made
the rounds of local publications. Mr. Boyle's tradi-
tional conservative values, particularly those of
smaller government and lower taxes, apparently
raised the ire of Mr. Gandy.
Well, before they expect Nassau County taxpay-
ers to enthusiastically open their wallets to local
politicians and bureaucrats, the "New Tax Chorale"
would do well to answer the following questions:
1. Assessed property value in Nassau County has
increased by approximately $1 billion since this
time last year. That's right, $1 billion. Assuming a
tax rate of seven mills, that $7 million dollars in new
revenue; $7 million in new property tax dollars avail-
able to the county commission! Question: Given that
enormous increase, why can't the commission use a
portion of that increase to resurface roads and for-
get the "new" tax idea?
2. The county commission has voted to increase
property taxes for the last three years. Questions:
Has any of that "new" tax money been allocated for
transportation projects? If not, why hasn't it?
3. Taxpayers in this county are already subjected
to a 6.5- or 7- cent gas tax. This 7- cent gas tax cur-
rently generates roughly $1.2 million. Question:
Given the additional revenue generated by three
straight years of property tax increases, plus the
$1.2 million being generated by the current 7-cent
gas tax, why is an additional 5-cent gas tax neces-
sary?
4. Administrator Mahaney says, "You're already
at traffic failure on A1A." Given that dismal, though
accurate, assessment of the A1A corridor, this logi-


"r. cally following question that
goes something like this: If
the A1A corridor is at "traffic
failure," why is Nassau
County continuing to permit
major projects along that
1 "failed" corridor? How much
traffic will Home Depot gen-
erate? A new Target store?
How about the thousand
M homes projected for that
Area?
Ron Sapp In my opinion, the "New
--- ... Tax Chorale" is way off key.
Throwing another one or two
THE NO million dollars at county infra-
'SPIN' ZONE structural problems isn't the
answer. Implementing this
"new" tax would be like taking aspirin for a fever it
mightlower our temperature temporarily, but by not
addressing the underlying problems the fever just
comes back. We have to look at what's causing the
fever.
One cause, one major cause, is the complete
abandonment of sound, effective growth manage-
minent practices in Nassau County. Gov. Bush recent-
ly said, "There is no growth management in
Florida." Well, there is certainly no growth manage-
ment in Nassau County.
Sound, effective managed growth begins with
strict adherence to a comprehensive plan sensitive
*to the needs of a community, or area. That plan con-
tains LDRs, or land development regulations,
designed to preserve and protect that community's,
or area's, quality of life. Nassau County's compre-
hensive plan seems to have found its way to the
darkest corner of the darkest room of some remote
county building, far away, never to be seen, read or
otherwise consulted ever again. How else does one
explain its conspicuous absence from any and all
growth related discussions and/or decisions?
Sound, effective growth management would
require developers, those who create the need for
new infrastructure roads, public safety, recreation,
schools, etc. to pay for that infrastructure. But
elected officials in our county seem to have adopted
the Beano Roberts/Marie Antoinette approach to


Implementing this "new" tax would
be like taking aspirin for a fever it
might lower our temperature
temporarily, but by not addressing the
underlying problems the fever just
comes back. We have to look at
what's causing the fever.



constituency relations: "Voters in Nassau County
are not Rhodes Scholars, so let them eat cake." This
dismissive attitude results consistently in the costs
associated with development being shifted to those
who desire it least, current homeowners and taxpay-
ers.
Opposing the "new" tax is easy, supporting the
"cure" is harder. Supporting the "cure" means that,
1) we have to insist that elected officials abide strict-
ly by the county comprehensive plan, 2) that the
comprehensive plan should be systematically updat-
ed to include changing community attitudes, e.g.,
the inclusion of a sound tree protection ordinance,
3) that county officials no longer enter into "devel-
oper agreements," which are, in reality, "developer
appeasement" documents, 4) that impact fees be
consistently and fairly enforced in order to make
those responsible for infrastructure costs pay for
them, and 5) that no new developments be permit-
ted until all public costs associated with those devel-
opments are paid for.
Right now the "New Tax Chorale" has only two
members, and they're singing off key. Let's keep
them practicing in their garages by doing the kinds
of things that make "new" taxes forever unneces-
sary like demanding that our local officials prac-
tice sound, effective growth management.

VIEWPOINT/DicK MoIms/POLmnCALCONSULTANT



We need more'extreme moderates'


I once read a cartoon in which cari-
catured figures representing the
left and the right announce their
extremism. The guy in the middle
says, "I am an extreme moderate."
We need more extreme moderates
in this increasingly polarized
Congress. Unless we want to avoid
national ideological bloodfests like the
government shutdown of 1995-1996
and the presidential impeachment of
..1998-1999,.wehave to develop a coher-
,s~nteefitenixidAhe Senate. .
,- 'In the pastyparty leaders in the
Senate offered this alternative of mod-
eration, mediating the extreme views
of their members and homogenizing
them into a coherent and stable politi-
cal dialogue. But the growth of central-
ly funded campaigns, dominated by
PACs of the left and the right, has
made the majority and minority lead-
ers in the Senate the captive of highly
polarized and ideological interest
groups.
The real meaning of the ouster of
Sen. Trent Lott, R-Miss., by Majority
Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., was the tri-
umph of ideological leadership over a
more moderate, institutional manage-
ment of the body.
Frist is the bludgeon where' Lott
was the conciliator. Frist, drawing on
his background as a heart surgeon,
believes the answer is to start any
operation by breaking ribs. Lott, an
innate politician, understands that con-
frontation is no way to govern and that
he needs to massage the institutional
dynamic to get it to work.
Now, finally, 14 moderates have
taken their place astride the center of
the Senate, which is really the apex of
its power. Some are there only for the
short term, for this fight only. But
some, Democrats from Republican
states and Republicans from Demo-
cratic states, have realized that they
will fall between two chairs if the ideo-
logical groups dominate the politics of
the Senate, as Frist and Minority
Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., would
have them do.
Now comes the time for these mod-
erates to take the next step and
address themselves to a substantive
issue. Taking their cue from one of
their number, Republican Sen. Lindsey
Graham of South Carolina, they
should form a moderate center to
address the Social Security problem.

They should throw out the absurd
Democratic position that they will not
pass anything that includes any
amount of diversion to private invest-
ment accounts. And they should also
ditch the equally unrealistic GOP
opposition to any tax increase.
In the middle, they should let each
citizen choose his or her retirement
age, mandating higher taxes for those
who choose an earlier date and lower
taxes for those who agree to a post-
ponement
Armed with those ideas, they
should develop legislation that is


acceptable to the broad middle of the
country, which understands the need
to adjust Social Security to make it
financially viable. We all get it that
taxes have to go up and benefits have
to come down for the system to be
there when we need it. But we also
want the option to design the package
for ourselves and to invest some of the
taxes we pay to make our retirement,
when it does come, easier and better.
And all Americans, except for cer-
tain members of Congress, are willing
to subordinate partisanship to the
paramount necessity of having a good
4


and financially sound Social Security
system. If ever there were a place for
moderates to create a consensus, this
issue is it
The harmful polarization of our sys-
tem, where the right tries to hammer
the left into submission by closure and
the left attempts to talk the right to
death through a filibuster is no place
to perform the delicate balancing we
will need to preserve Social Security. It
is here we need some statesmanship.

Nassau County firefighters will
participate in a nationally recog-
nized "Safety Stand Down" to
thoroughly examine firefighter
safety standards and to raise
awareness of deaths in the line of
duty in 2005.
This may be the first time a
national stand-down has been
implemented. Due to firefighter
deaths increasing at an alarming
rate, the International Association
of Fire Chiefs is calling for
this stand down to call attention to
the line-of-duty deaths and
injuries.
Nationally there have been 50
line-of-duty firefighter deaths this
year, which is 10 more than at


this same time last year. All fire
departments are being asked to
conduct a "stand down" for fire-
fighter safety beginning June 21
and participate to identify safety
issues within their department in
hopes to stop the increase in line-
of-duty deaths.
"Our entire staff will focus on
what can be done to improve fire
department safety as well as indi-
vidual safety as a part of this
national event," said Nassau
County Fire Chief Chuck Cooper
in a press release. "We will
address all aspects of fire service
safety and perform a concentrat-
ed effort to resolve any problems
that may exist and communicate


with others in the fire service all
over the nation."
Lirie-of-duty deaths; apparatus
and equipment; health and safety
regulations; fire ground safety
issues; training exercises and fit-
ness goals will be the primary
areas of discussion among fire
departments. "All non-emergency
activity will be suspended and
focus on firefighter safety will be
carefully reviewed with all our
staff participating with an
exchange of ideas about fire-
fighter health and safety to miti-
gate these deaths," said Cooper.
'There are many segments for us
to examine and this will take sev-
eral days to perform.


New Nassauville apartments

The efforts of Nassau County,
the Clay County Housing Finance
Authority and the Florida Housing
Finance Corp. to promote afford-
able housing are moving forward
with the official opening of a new

$19 million development
Federal law allows state and
local agencies to issue tax-exempt
bonds for the development of
affordable housing communities.
The issuer does not have any
financial risk for the payment of
the bonds, but its involvement in
the public purpose. of providing
needed affordable housing
allows the bonds to be tax exempt,
which results in a lower interest
rate.-
Nassau Club includes 32 one-
bedroom apartments, 112 two-bed-
room apartments, 32 three-bed-
room apartments and 16
four-bedroom apartments. All of
the apartments are anticipated to
qualify as affordable housing; cur-
rent rents start at $569 a month for
a one-bedroom apartment; $674
for a two-bedroom; $772 for a
three-bedroom; and $840 for a


four-bedroom.
To qualify for the affordable
rates, renters must be within fed-
erally defined income limits.
The apartment community fea-
tures a swimming pool; clubhouse
with a large-screen TV; fully-
equipped fitness room; sports
court and tot lot; car care area;
business center outfitted with com-
puters, printers and a fax machine;
and "Monster Club," a free, inno-
vative after-school program serv-
ing children between the ages of 5
and 11 who are residents of the

V TOGETHER WE CAN


Bereavement Support Group


a bulwark for those left behind


HEATHER PERRY
News-Leader
When a loved one dies, grief is
a natural response. The closer we
are to the deceased, the deeper
our grief will be. Mourning some-
times leads to physical and emo-
tional symptoms such as lethargy
or insomnia, feelings of anxious-
ness, depression, anger and help-
lessness.
The Bereavement Support
Group was created as a response
to a perceived need in the com-
munity.
"We provide a safe environ-
ment for participants to share and
process their grief," said group
facilitator, Mary Jo Morrison.
Sharing thoughts and feelings
with others who have been


through the
: :. same experience
not only provides
relief, but offers
the opportunity
to form lasting
friendships as
well. When there
Morrison are others to
turn to for
strength, guid-
ance and support, grief is less
likely to become overwhelming.
Reaching acceptance is easier
when those left behind feel sup-
ported and understood by those
around them.
In addition to facilitating the
Bereavement Support Group,
Morrison is also part of the Child
Advocate Rapid Response Team,
serving children in school. Any


type of loss issue is addressed,
such as a parent in prison, divorce
or having to leave everything
familiar due to a domestic vio-
lence situation.
The bereavement support
group is co-sponsored by the
Barnabas Center and Hospice of
Jacksonville and meets the sec-
ond Wednesday of each month
from 4:30-6 p.m. at the Barnabas
office, 11 South 11th St,
Fernandina Beach.
No pre-registration is required,
there is no fee and the group is
open to anyone in the community.
There is a support group specifi-
cally for parents.

V HELPING OTHERS


'Retired' physician still


busy giving to others

HEATHER PERRY :: .. ,. ,
News-Leader .


Dr. James T. Dawsey is one of
the busiest "retired" Nassau
County residents around, accord-
ing to Nassau County Health
Department Medical Director Dr.
Ngo-Seidel.
Seidel said, "One would be
hard pressed to find another indi-
vidual who advocates for the
needs of the others throughout
the life spectrum."
Dawsey "graciously donates
his time and receives no compen-
sation for the clinical services he
provides at several Nassau
(health department) sites. Most
of the care is provided to unin-
sured or low-income women who
would otherwise not receive spe-
cialty care."
Patients benefit from his com-
passionate and expert care and
he consistently advocates for
their needs.
Dawsey also works closely
social workers to provide care -
coordination to pregnant and
postpartum women through the
Healthy Start Program.
During last year's hurricanes,
Dawsey not only loaned his
expertise to the special needs
shelter but also "worked tireless-
ly in serving not only.Nassau
County but the entire Northeast
Florida region in coordinating
disaster relief."
In addition to his work with
the county heath department,
Dawsey is also involved in
Rotary, March of Dimes,
American Red Cross and the
Area Agency on Aging.
"He is a tremendous
asset to the Nassau County
Health Department and the com-
munity as a whole," Ngo-Seidel
said.
For his part, Dawsey savors
"the personal satisfaction of mak-
ing a difference and the gratitude
of our clients."
Dawson shares his
Fernandina Beach home with
his wife, Teresa. The couple has
two grown sons, James and
Jeremy.

'Survival Piratical' for ROTC members


ALICE WALSH
News-Leader
School is out, but learning isn't
over for members of the FBHS
Naval Junior Reserve Officers
Training Corps.
An annual summer campout at
Fort Clinch State Park, held this
year on May 24-26, provides a
chance to learn some things not
possible in the classroom, while
enjoying the camaraderie of fellow
members.
It also affords a refreshing
break from the books, lectures and
tests, a way to stretch mind and


body in the great outdoors.
Fourteen NJROTC high school
students attended this year's cam-
pout. The theme was a "Survival
Piratical," loosely based on the idea
of the "Survivor" television show,
with a series of challenges, two
tribes, and rewards for team
achievement. The teams were
named "Drake" and "Aury" after
two infamous pirates, and all activ-
ities carried through on the pirate
theme.
Each team designed their own
flag, using pillowcases, and Booster
Club parents did the judging.

winning team held up for over 16
minutes before their pyramid col-
lapsed.
There was a relay competition,
which involved passing buckets of
water with holes in them as fast as
possible before all the water ran
out. And puzzles were part of a
beach treasure hunt, in which the
teams first had to find the "treas-
ure," then be the first to put the
puzzle pieces together.
The students also learned the
history of local pirates from a fel-
low student who researched the
subject. In their free time, the stu-
dents enjoyed fishing, playing on
the beach and exploring Fort
Clinch and the park. They also per-
form volunteer work at the park
in exchange for free camping priv-
ileges.
"The camping activities are for
the students, by the students," said
Chief Denise Cegielski. "They do
it all and come up with some great
ideas. We also have a great Parent
Booster Club, who purchased our
supply trailer and are very active in
support of the NJROTC program."

When Brandon Hodges was a
baby, personnel at Baptist Hospital
sent him home to die, saying they
had done all they could for the
tiny infant that weighed 2 pounds
at birth and had been in their care
for over 9 months.
But Brandon showed them.
Not only did he live, but he
graduated last month from
Fernandina Beach High School,
an accomplishment many thought
he'd never achieve.
Brandon, who lives in Hilliard
with his grandparents, Jessie and
Gwendolyn Hodges, is autistic and
has cerebral palsy. He came to
live with his grandparents when
he was 4 years old.
Since there was no school pro-
gram that would address his spe-
cial needs in Hilliard at the time,
Brandon began attending school
in Fernandina Beach. He first
attended Emma Love Hardee
Elementary School, then FBHS.
The Hodges say their grandson
has flourished in school, and they
are grateful to his teachers for all
they've done for him.
Brandon graduated with hon-
ors, having earned all A's and B's,
with no unexcused absences and
no student disciplinary problems.
He was in Karen Cusick's class
during his junior and senior years
at FBHS.
After receiving his diploma,
Brandon smiled and told his class,
"I'm out of here." His friend Chris
Hobbs sat next to him at gradua-
tion, which was held at the
Jacksonville Arena, and helped
Brandon with his tassel. Chris
took care of Brandon back stage
as well, and brought him a special
gift for graduation a bag of M &
M candies.
Jessie Hodges said "the crowd
went nuts" when Brandon walked
across the stage to receive his
diploma.
"The crowd went crazy," he
said. "Brandon never meets a
stranger. Everybody that knows
him loves him."
After graduation, Brandon was
treated to a special night out at a

His dad, Russell Hodges, who
lives next door, is proud of
Brandon's accomplishments, too.
Now that Brandon is finished
with high school, he will be work-
ing in June with other special stu-
dents who will perform such tasks
as straightening song books at
churches and other small jobs.
Although Brandon is aware
that he's accomplished something
big, he just takes it all in stride.
He's more concerned with the
football programs at Charlton
County High School, as well as
Nassau County's schools.
"He can tell you the players
and anything else you want to
know about those teams," Mr.
Hodges said. "And he loves the

Brandon is also .the family his-

certain facts. Autism, by defini-
tion, is a complex developmental
disability that typically appears
during the first three years of life.


The result of a neurological dis-
order that affects the functioning
of the brain, autism impacts the
normal development of the brain
in the areas of social interaction
and communication skills.
Children and adults with
autism typically have difficulties in
verbal and non-verbal communi-
cation, social interactions and
leisure or play activities. As many
as 1.5 million Americans today are
believed to have some form of
autism.
And being autistic isn't
Brandon's only challenge. He also
has cerebral palsy, a chronic con-
dition that affects body movement
and muscle coordination. The dis-
ease is caused by damage to one
or more specific areas of the brain,
usually occurring during fetal
development, before, during or
shortly after birth.
Faulty development or dam-
age to motor areas in the brain
disrupt the brain's ability to ade-
quately control movement and
posture.
The disease itself isn't pro-
gressive, but secondary condi-
tions, such as muscle spasticity,
may get worse over time.
But no one in the Hodges fam-
ily is concerned about what the
experts say or what may or may
not happen with Brandon's con-
ditions. They're just proud of his
accomplishments and are glad
-he's a part of their family --'
"He's smart. He doesn't forget
anything," said Brandon's proud
grandpa. "And we didn't think he'd

5 Jacksonville men held in bust


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
Five Jacksonville men were
arrested Friday by county's Drug
Eradication and Enforcement Task
Force as part of Operation S.O.O.N.
(Stay Out of Nassau), an under-
cover operation aimed at individu-
als suspected of selling crack
cocaine in Nassau County.
At the end of the day, deputies
had been in one car chase and two
vehicle accidents, and they'd seized
four cars, one handgun and 87
grams of crack cocaine.
Starting around 11 a.m. Friday,
task force members set up one
undercover drug purchase after
another at a gas station on US 1 in
Callahan.
"You've always got to try to stay
one step ahead of (drug dealers)....
you've got to try to figure out what
their plans are," said Nassau
County Sheriff Tommy Seagraves
of setting up undercover opera-
tions. "If you just walk up to them
and say, 'I want some cocaine,'
they'll look at you like, 'Who are
you, the police?'"
The first two arrests went off
without a hitch, but when law
enforcement officers went to arrest
the third suspect, Craig Harper, 29,
Harper drove out of the gas station
parking lot
Traveling south on US 1, Harper
led police on a car chase that ended
just yards past the Duval County
line when task force members
forced him into the median with
their vehicles, causing damage to
all the vehicles involved.
After Harper, another under-
cover drug purchase went smooth-
ly, but what would be the final
arrest for the operation led to more
damaged vehicles when Darnell L.
Foster, 21, allegedly attempted to
drive away from the parking lot
after confronted by police.
..In an attempt to keep Foster
from driving into traffic, police first
tried to block his vehicle with their

trucks. When Foster reportedly
continued trying to flee the scene,
his car was struck by two sheriffs
trucks.
"It was good that they kept
(Foster) from driving straight into
traffic," Seagraves said. "If he had,
there's no telling what could have
happened."
No one was injured in the acci-
dent, and Foster was arrested with-
out further incident.
Operation S.O.O.N. began May
25 and ended Friday with the five
arrests, according to a press
release.

the negative and created an image for his
three sons of 3 man without fight, crushed
by a world o..er which he had no control
"His not fighting back against her con-
stant criticism had the effect of confirming
its validity to hir sons.And my mother's
treatment and the picture of my father
did not convey to me that marriage was a
happy scate of being., or that women were
basically people. I was not especially moti-
vated to assume the role of husband and
father myself from my observations of my
whipped father."
My overall research dearly supports
that the mother is the basic filter and has
enormous significance in the father-son
relatlonshlp.ThoughYablonsky did not say
so, it is also true that a father can do great
damage to his wife's relationship with their
children.Very early on. I found that when
I was irritated with Shirley for some rea-
son, rnmy attitude was instantly picked Lp by
our son and daugh-or They seemed to feel.


New law

on rabies
Florida Gov. Jeb Bush signed
a new rabies law into effect
May 27.
With passage of this legislation,
Florida joins 34 other states that
either require or recognize three-
year rabies vaccines.
Currently only 14 Florida coun-
ties recognize a three-year rabies
vaccine for the full duration of
immunity, which has resulted in
thousands of currently vaccinated
animals being required to be revac-
cinated for no justifiable medical
reason due to local laws.
Local governments and veteri-
narians will be required to follow
the new law and recognize a rabies
vaccine for its "duration of immu-
nity" either one or three years. In
order to incorporate the new pro-
visions in local codes and ordi-
nances, the implementation date
is Jan. 1, 2006.
Local governments can realize
a cost savings on tags, forms and
administrative costs on three-year
vaccine and license requirements.
A standardized rabies/license cer-
tificate will be required.
For more information contact
Lois Kostroski, executive director
of the Florida Animal Control
Association, at 866-303-3222.


"If Dad can argue with Mom, then we can
too."
It became clear to me just how Impor-
tant it was for me to express my love and
admiration for Shirley However, 1 could '
never do that job of building respect for my
wife as well aE she did for me! She made
me a king in my own home. If our son and
daughter believed half of what she told
them about me, I would have been a for-
tunate man.The close rehoonship I enjoy
with Danae and Ryan today is largely a
product of Shirley's great love for me and
the way she "intErpreted" me to our kids.
I will always be grateful to her for doing
that!
QUESTION: After reading sev-
eral excellent books on parenting, I
see now that I've been doing many
things wrong with my children. Can I
undo the harm?
DR. DOBSON: I doubt if it is coo late
to do things right, although your ability to
Influence your children lessens with the
passage of time. Fortunately. we are per-
mitted to make many mistakes with our
kids.They are resilient and will usually sur-
vive most of our errors in judgment. It's a
good thing they do. because none of us can
be a perfect parent. Besides. it's not the
occasional mistakes that hurt a child: it is
the consistent influence of destructive ton-
ditions throughout childhood that does
the damage.

If you shop around for a home equity loan or line of credit. you'll :
find that a lot of low advertised rates don't look as good when you read the
fine print. At VyStar. the more you read, the better it gets. That's because our
rate is not a teaser rate just to get you in the door and it doesn't go up based
on your credit. There are no hidden costs, annual fees or pre-payment penalties
that change the true cost of the loan to you. In fact, we'll even pay your closing
costs on lines of $10,000 to $125,000. Our best rate is half a percent below prime
The prime rate is reported by The Wall Street Journal in the Money Rates section.
Of course, there are always limitations and restrictions, such as basic credit approval,
the appraised value of your home and the amount of money you want to borrow
But in the end, you'll find that our low rates just keep getting better, the more you
know. For example, you can get our best rate on up to 800o of the value of your home,
less the first mortgage balance, if it's your primary residence Other loan to value rates
are equally attractive and again, aren't encumbered by hidden charges and early payoff
fees Visit a branch or call us for details and learn why we are the leader in home
equity loans and lines of credit

Foxsports.com preseason
fan pick to win the 2005 col-
lege football Heisman Trophy:
Florida QB Chris Leak, who
last Wednesday had garnered
35 percent of the more than
33,000 votes. Wonder how
much impact UF's hiring of
the "Coach of the Year" is hav-
ing on the nation's expecta-
tions of Leak?...
The following is a para-
phrased transcript of a conver-
sation that reportedly took
place between South Carolina
head football coach Steve
Spurrier and media members
during the SEC meetings in
Destin last week (Note:
Spurrier began the conversa-
tion by stating that any future
misconduct by his players
would result in dismissal):
UGASports.com reporter
Todd Unzicker, responding to
the coach's comment: "What
about Dusty Lindsey?"
Spurrier: "What about
Dustin, he has a twin brother,
are we talking football now?"
Unzicker: "No, he got
arrested."
Spurrier: "What?
Recently?"
USC sports information
guy: "What's this?"
Unzicker: "He got arrested
in Mobile."
Spurrier: "He got arrested
in Mobile? For what?"
Unzicker: "DUI."
Meanwhile, another media
member holds up a copy of
the Mobile newspaper to
show Spurrier the headline.
Spurrier drops his head.
Spurrier: "Well, you got me
on that one."
(The media boys chuckle.)
Spurrier, who is noticeably
agitated: "Who is the Georgia
writer in here?"
Media members point to
Unzicker.
Spurrier is visibly miffed.
Classic...
Back in Gainesville, where
Spurrier once enjoyed
tremendous success, new UF
head coach Urban Meyer is
continuing to amass a cult-like.

summer to more than 12,000

meetings across the state. I
don't know what the big deal
is. I mean, I only had my pic-

8x10, while most of these
freaks would have most cer-

Beekeepers in Tulsa,

Pirate hurler tops all-county baseball team


BETH JONES
News-Leader

Remember 2003? The Pirate
baseball team made it to the state
championship game and, along the
way, a sophomore pitcher posted a
6-1 record.
Ryan Estes, now a senior at
Fernandina Beach High School,
remembers that
., season as a high-
light of his three-
year career for
the Pirates.
Like a num-
ber of players
.. S.'4 -who dressed for
the Pirates that
season, Estes
.. fondly remem-
Estes bers beating
Bishop Kenny in
the regional
championship game to earn a Final
Four appearance.
"It was at Bishop Kenny and
that made it even better," Estes
said.
Estes went to Tampa with the
team but didn't get in the rotation
for the final two games as the No.
3 pitcher.
"He's grown and matured as a
player from being the new guy as
a 10th grader," FBHS Coach Ken
Roland said. "With Matt (Davis)
and Ross (Gordon) out there, he
was No. 3. But he won some big
games. That put pressure on him
and he's managed to handle it very
well."
Estes, the 2005 most valuable
player of the News-Leader and
Nassau County Record's all-Nassau
County Baseball Team, was 7-4 this,
season and collected 19 wins over
his career with the Pirates.
"He was in the starting rotation
from the time he walked in as a
1Ii-' 9iradcir." Roland said. "He's
kind of been one of those guys
when you have a big game you
hand the ball to him.
"I think every game he pitched
in he's kept us in the game. He
kept it close for us to win it or have
a chance to win it. Win or lose,


that's what you want your pitching
to do."
And Estes didn't face the light-
weights.
"The. No. 1 faces up to better
teams," Roland said. "It comes with
the territory of being the No. 1
pitcher."
Estes had an earned run aver-
age of 2.12 with 89 strikeouts in 74
innings. He walked just 14.
"His strikeout to walk ratio was
very high," Roland said. Estes also
picked up two saves on the mound.
Estes, 17, wasn't always a pitch-
er, however. He played one year
of Little League in Charleston, S.C.,
before moving to Fernandina
Beach at the age of six.He didn't
log time on -.he mound until he was
nine.
Hewoi ked hiis way through the
ranks of the local leagues and spent
three years on the varsity squad
for the high school. The 6-foot-3,
' 175-pound south paw, who has
been clocked in the lower to mid
80s, hails his curve ball as his best
pitch.
"The changeup is right there
with it," Estes said.
Estes and all-county teammates
Jessie Ladson and Josh Blanton
played in the Florida Athletic
Coaches Association all-star sen-
ior baseball game at the University
of North Florida on Memorial Day.
Estes pitched two innings in the
North team's win. He was also hon-
ored as the most valuable player for
the 2005 Pirate baseball team.
Estes wants to continue play-
ing baseball but where he will do
that is still up in the air.
"It's where he can get on the
field first," Roland said.
He's had offers and, with the
pro draft Tuesday opening some
holes in programs, he might have
a few more offers.
"He wants to get on the field,"
Roland said.
"I'm going to play somewhere,"
Estes said. "It's just where right
now."
Estes is the son of Richard and
Charlene Estes of Fernandina
Beach.

Open Water

Challenge set

for Saturday

Saturday will find the volunteers
of the Fernandina Beach U.S.
Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 14-
1 lending assistance to the
Fernandina Beach Parks and
Recreation Department for the 5K
and one-mile open water challenge.
This year the event is named
in honor of deceased Coast Guard
Auxiliary man Ed Gaw who was
the founder and director for five
years of the event.
The 5K race will start at
Simmons Road and the one-mile
race will start at Jasmine Street.
The finish line is at Main Beach
for both events.
There will be buoys placed by
the Coast Guard Auxiliary volun-
teers along the swimming course.
Additionally, three Coast Guard
Auxiliary patrol boats will provide
security and safety to assist the
Fernandina Beach Police
Department Marine Unit, Fire
Department and lifeguards. Police
and lifeguards will keep watch from
shore while three auxiliary patrol
boats Herlincon, Grey Eagle
and Swabia will keep safety sta-
tions off shore. Kayakers will also
help keep track of the swimmers.
Should anyone need assistance
during their swim, the fire depart-
ment's personal water crafts will
help the swimmers to one of the
three USCGAUX patrol boats sta-
tioned along the swim area.
The auxiliary is there to pro-
mote safety and provide any assis-
tance the swimmers or sponsors
may need.
Both events start at 8:30 a.m.
Registration is now $40. Call 277-
7350 or e-mail event coordinators

penalty shot and fired his approach shot to within 15 feet of the hole. Needing to
drain the putt to avoid a playoff, Bryant eased the ball into the left side of the hole
to record his second victory in the last nine months. The victory also allowed Bryant
an invitation into the United States Open in two weeks.

Topping the ball is a com-
mon problem for the ama-
teur golfer. The most com-
mon argument to explain
why this is happening is to
say that you are lifting your
head. More times than not,
this is not really the prob-
lem. The most common
cause of topping is when (for right-hand-
ed golfers), the left arm collapses and
causes the distance between the ball
and the golfer to shorten tremendously.
The best way to practice the feeling of
having your arms straight is to take a few
practice pitch shots. Whenever you pitch
the ball, the left arm has to be straight
upon impact. Do this drill for about five to
ten minutes and then implement the
feeling to the remainder of your clubs to
solve the topping problem.

OUTDOORS


Kings have arrived


' "' ,F.. ..


- -----


Kingfish are run-
ning at offshore fish
structures and
averaging from 6-
15 pounds. Giant
tournament-size
kings should be
arriving any day.
Menhaden have
begun to show up
along the beaches
of Amelia Island
and are by far one
of the premiere
kingfish live baits.
TERRY IACOSS/SPECIAL


~~WME


"Did you hear the latest fishing news?" Joe
Julavits asked. "Dan Colborn Sr. and his son Dan Jr.
reeled in two kingfish from the Jacksonville fishing
pier weighing 53 and 28 pounds!"
Julavits is the outdoors writer for the
Jacksonville Times-Union and had called my office
for a fishing report.
"I guess we both know where everyone will be
fishing during next week's King Buster kingfish
tournament," Julavits said. "The Jacksonville beach-
es will be packed with kingfish boats, particularly
at the Red Tops where tournament size winning
kingfish are often landed.
"You know, it's odd though, there hasn't been
much action in the Jacksonville Chum Hole during
recent years. I think it's the lack of shrimp boats
dumping their chum in these fishy waters."
I agreed, as kingfish action at the St. Marys inlet
has also fallen off during recent kingfish seasons. A
definite trend has taken place during the past few
kingfish seasons where kingfish have been located
holding close to the beaches and offshore reefs
where baitfish schools are plentiful. The days have
dwindled away when kingfish used to follow the
working shrimp boats and feed on their discarded
catch.
However, this doesn't mean that you can't chum
them up, much like inlet fishermen used to do in
the past. Modern king mackerel fishing boats are
still grinding and cutting up menhaden and chum-
ming with this potent smelling baitfish. The only
change has come with long distance runs to off-
shore reefs.
During last year's kingfish tournament trial,
many of the winning kingfish were taken from
Georgia's Gray's Reef, Florida's Elton Bottom and
as far south as Cape Canaveral.
"The bite was good at Brunswick Bottom dur-
ing the Sapelo Kingfish Tournament," Joe Bruce
said. "However, who knows where they will be in a
few weeks? I expect a lot of tournament boats will
be fishing Gray's Reef this year."
During last year's Fernandina Beach
Tournament of Champions Kingfish Tournament,
Paul Massey took the winning fish from Gray's
Reef.
One thing you can bet on, the kingfish have
arrived at many of Northeast Florida's offshore fish


havens during the past few
days.
"We had double headers of
kings and lucked out with one
nice cobia," Capt. Cris Holland
said. "The kingfish action is
good right now and let's hope
that it stays good right through
the summer for our fishing
charters."
Terry Lacoss Holland skippers the char-
... ter boat Misti Lynn and, like
many other local charter fish-
OUTDOORS ing captains, relies on the sum-
mer run of king mackerel to
help book their offshore fishing charter boats.
Local sport fishing boats are netting menhaden
at the south end of Amelia Island and jigging up
live cigar minnows at offshore structures.
"I found plenty of live minnows at the FA barge
and just began trolling at many of FA's ledges," said
Capt. Benny Hendrix, who operates the fishing
charter vessel Miss Val. "We ended up with eight
kings for our half-day charter. The action was real
good for this time of year!"
With this all said, there hasn't been a lot of 30-
pound kingfish landed so far this year. Most of the
kings are running from 6-15 pounds. But the
"smokers" should be here any day now!

FWC meets June 1517
The Florida Fish and Wildlife'
Conservation Commission will
meet at the Hilton Daytona
Beach Ocean Front Resort June
15-17.
The June 15 agenda includes
two items deferred from the
April meeting. One of them is a
rule change to prohibit deer-dog
hunting on a 7,481-acre portion
of the San Pedro Bay Wildlife
Management Area. The other is
a proposed rule change to mana-
tee protection zones in the
Matlacha Pass in Lee County.
In other action, concerning
hunting dogs, commissioners
will review findings from work-
shops on the proposal to launch
a statewide deer-dog registration
program, patterned after a pilot


program in northwest Florida
last year. Also, commissioners
will consider adoption of a rule to
establish the deer-dog registra-
tion program.
Commissioners also plan to
hear an update on Florida's
Comprehensive Wildlife
Conser.atiorifntAt~.heWhi'hfe
part of a nationwide wildlife con-
servation effort.
In connection with pending
changes to the state's list of -
imperiled species, commission-
ers will consider staff recommen-
dations for persons to serve on
biological review panels and
deadlines. Species with pending
classification changes include
the Panama City crayfish, mana-
tee, bald eagle and gopher tor-
toise.
Whether to adopt measurable
biological goals as part of the cri-
teria for evaluating establishment
of manatee protection zones also
is a decision on the June 15 agen-
da.
The FWC plans to consider
proposed season dates and bag
limits for early season migratory
bird hunting. Staff is not propos-
ing any changes from last year's
dates and bag limits, but rules
for the coming season won't be
final until later this summer
when federal authorities approve
the final framework.
Staff reports on the agenda
include the future of hunting and

fishing in Florida and an
overview of FWC, state, federal,
regional and international pro-
grams addressing exotic and
invasive species.
On June 16, commissioners
will take final action on a pro-
posed rule that specifies buoy-
and trap-marking.requirements. .
for black sea bass traps. This',-,-,
rule is intended to prevent black
sea bass traps from being
misidentified and removed dur-
ing coastal clean-up events, and
to help reduce use of illegal fish
traps.
The FWC will also review and
discuss a federal consistency
rule for vermilion snapper. This
proposed rule would establish an
11-inch minimum size limit for
vermilion snapper harvested
statewide for all recreational fish-
ermen, and for all commercially
harvested vermilion snapper in
the Gulf of Mexico. The rule
would also establish a 10-fish
recreational bag limit for vermil-
ion snapper in the Gulf, and close
the gulf to commercial harvest of
vermilion snapper from April 22
through May 31.
In other marine fisheries
action, the Commission will
review and discuss proposed fed-
eral snapper-grouper regulation
changes in the south Atlantic,
possible federal actions to reduce
the recreational harvest of red
grouper in the Gulf of Mexico,
and the annual marine fisheries
management work plan.
Land acquisition decisions on
the June 16 agenda include a 350-
acre U.S. Department of

'Big Guy' can't hide from admiring public


SUBMITTED
"Big Guy" sometimes good
things come in big packages.


Deep throat has stepped
forward and we all
know who he is and
what he looks like.
Time for Big Guy to step forward.
People want to know. Faithful
readers know a lot about the Big
Guy; his struggle with the marsh
critter determined to nest in his
car, his travels abroad and closer
to home and the daily challenges
of living with the Ever Ready
Bunny.
Yes, my guy is big and now
famous thanks to his heralded
adventures that appear in the
News-Leader weekly.
People recognize him and ask,
"You're the Big Guy right?" It can
be at a checkout line at Publix, at
an island restaurant or at the


movie the-
ater.
enjoys his
notoriety.
him in per-
son is to
--know that
he is big -
tall with
dashing
Dickie Anderson gray hair.
Big is not
.". "*fat. Big is
FROM THE not obese.
PORCH Big is not
huge. Big
is just one
size bigger than most folks.
Being married to Big Guy has


its advantages. When we go to
social events I can always find
him. I do think that at airports,
restaurants and theaters people
tend to take a big guy more seri-
ously.
It isn't easy being green, as
Kermit the frog will tell us, and it
isn't easy being big.
For the Big Guy airplane
seats are always one size too
small. Theater seats need to be
aisle seats. You just need to
get in a car that he has driven and
you will find your feet do not
come close to meeting the gas or
brake peddles with out re-adjust-
ment.
People stop and stare when
they see a pair of his shoes. He
wears one size bigger than what-


ever every shoe store stocks.
When we first met it was on a
blind date. When he called to set
up the date I was immediately
impressed with his BIG voice and
even asked if he was on the radio.
I could just hear him say, "High
in the mid 80's and partly cloudy."
Then I met the big handsome
brute and was immediately
impressed.
They say good things come
in little packages. At my house
the best things come in "big"
packages.

available for speaking engage-
ments to groups and for confer-
ences.

Hi everyone, I'm Snowball.
I'm a big white cat with long
hair that could really use a-,'1
loving human friend to sit
and brush my wavy locks
every night. I like people
and they like me. They seem
to be fascinated by the fact
that I have one blue eye and
one gold eye. It's no big deal,
just is, that's all.
What is a big deal is this
fabulous new location for the
Cats Angels Thrift Store. It's
just behind the Loop Pizza
Grill in the old Carpet and
Interior store facing 14th
Street and Publix.
Man oh man, what a great
.place. Twice as big as the
last shop, so large there's
furniture like some beautiful
sofas, and bunches of cats
and kittens. And that's why a


very intelligent person needs
to come adopt me because
"mI'mi none too-keen.on all; ,-..
these cats. See, I'm a solo :
kind of guy.
The thrift store is open
Monday through Saturday,
11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Super
Raffle tickets can be pur-
chased here too. Cats Angels
gladly takes donations,
except kitties because we're
all full up. We always need
volunteers, especially for
those messy little kittens,
and there are more of those
coming in all the time as .
they reach three months and
get spayed and neutered and
put up for adoption! The bot-
tom line here is you really
need to come in and see
what's happening because
it's just plain exciting!


STARS -


Heidi, a 4-year-old black
and tan, female German
shepherd is a sweet and loyal
pet. She was found when she
was only 60 pounds and
much too thin. She has
gained weight (she is now 75
pounds) and confidence and
would make someone a great
companion.
Save the Animals Rescue
Society, Inc. works to find
homes for abandoned and/or
mistreated animals from
Nassau County. The adoption
fee is $125-$200, which
helps to cover veterinary
expenses.
STARS does not run a
shelter. Animals are fostered
by STARS members until a
suitable and caring home is
found.
STARS needs new foster
homes in order to rescue
more animals and increase
adoptions.

Public invited to 'ham it up' on the radio


Over the past year, the news has
been full of reports of ham radio
operators providing critical com-
munications in emergencies world-
wide.
On the weekend of June 25-26,
local residents will have a chance to
meet and talk with ham radio oper-
ators and see for themselves what
this "radio service" is really about
The Nassau County Amateur Radio
Society (NCARS) in conjunction
with the Amateur Radio Emergency
Service (ARES) will hold a demon-
stration of emergency communica-
tions abilities at the Ron Anderson
auto outlet in Fernandina Beach
(1852 Sadler Road) from noon on
Friday, June 24, through noon on
Sunday, June 26.
The annual event, called "Field
Day," is the climax of the week-long
"Amateur Radio Week" sponsored
by ARRL, the national association
for Amateur Radio. Using only gen-
erators, batteries or solar power,
the hams construct emergency sta-


'We hope that people will come and seefor
themselves that this is not your grandfather's
radio anymore.'
DWAYNE MORRIS. PRESIDENT OF THE
NASSAU COUNTY AMATEUR RADIO SOCIETY


tions in parks, shopping malls and
backyards to test their skills under
all situations. The slogan, "Ham
radio works when other systems
don't!" is more than just words to
the hams as they prove they can
send messages in many forms with-
out the use of phone systems,
Internet or any other infrastructure
that can be compromised in a crisis.
More than 30,000 amateur radio
operators across the country par-
ticipated in last year's event
"We hope that people will come
and see for themselves that this is
not your grandfather's radio any-
more," said Dwayne Morris, presi-


dent of NCARS. Daniel McEachern,
ARES area coordinator for Nassau
County, adds, "It may be called
'Amateur Radio' because we are
unpaid, but like your 'Amateur
Volunteer Firefighters' that does
not mean that we're backwards."
Through the past year, hams have
provided 24-hour emergency com-
munications to the Nassau County
Department of Emergency Manage-
ment during every emergency oper-
ations center activation.
Tony Musselman, NCARS vice-
president and ARES deputy coor-
dinator for Nassau County, says,
"Hopefully, the 2005 hurricane sea-


son will not be as active as 2004,
but if the need arises, hams are pre-
pared to meet the challenge and
provide outstanding service."
Over the weekend, hams across
the country will demonstrate AM,
sideband, FM, digital, code and
even satellite communications.
Some clubs will also experiment
with TV signals and high frequency
equipment NCARS/ ARES will be
as active as resources allow. The
public (all ages) is invited to stop by
and observe, ask questions and par-
ticipate. Help to contact as many
states in the country as possible,
and speak to foreign countries.
Enjoy a meal at the NCARS Cafe. All
proceeds from the sale of barbecue
meals will directly benefit NCARS,
ARES operations in Nassau County.
For information contact Richard
Freeman, NCARS activity chairman
and ARES assistant emergency
coordinator, Nassau County, at 261-
8956 or by e-mail at KI4GTS@
