Whose job is storm


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader


Who is responsible for storm
cleanup? That was the question
Commissioner Ron Sapp put td City
Manager Michael Czymbor at a
Tuesday meeting of the Fernandina
Beach Commission.
Sapp said that he was told by
Czymbor after Tropical Storm Fay
that the city's waste service company
is not responsible because storm
debris removal is not in its contract.


tax cuts



'contest'
RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
Tempers flared during a discussion
of possible tax cuts at a Nassau County
Commission budget hearing Tuesday.
Clerk of Court John Crawford had
proposed in a Sept. 8 letter that the"
county cut the tentative 2009 budget by
$5-10 million to lower property tax
rates. Crawford's proposal was greet-
ed with skepticism by some commis-
sioners, who believed it was retalia-
tion for their refusal to grant him a
budget transfer of more than :"si: .0ij.
Commission Chair Marianne
Marshall, who had previously met with
Crawford to discuss his plan, asked
for a motion to allow Crawford to give
his presentation. The other commis-
sioners declined, forcing Crawford to
make use of the three-minute public
comment time allowed to any citizen.
"I'm a little befuddled that any com-
missioner would not want to hear any
remarks related to the budget about to
be passed into law," he said. "We're in
an economic downturn of gigantic pro-
portions.... Because we socked money

film
SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
After four years of research and
filming, largely done by students at
Fernandina Beach High School, the
documentary "Amelia Island: Isle of
Eight Flags" is ready for its film festi-
val debut. Next week, the documen-
tary will also be available on DVD at
local bookstores.
"We knew there wasn't a docu-
mentary like this about Amelia Island,"
said Rob Hicks who, until this year
was a television production teacher at
FBHS. "I thought it would be a good
project."
Work on the film began in 2004, so
many of the students involved have
since graduated high school; Hicks
said some are close to graduating col-
lege. But some may reunite later this
month during the Amelia Island Film'
Festival, where the documentary will
make its public debut.
Hicks and about 25 students
worked on the project, with the help of
some grant funding that enabled the
school to purchase several pieces of

The city, Sapp said, also does not
have its own storm equipment That
equipment was turned over to Waste
Management of Jacksonville in 2003
when the city hired that company to
manage its waste disposal system,
according to city fleet superintendent
Jeremiah Glisson.
And the city had yet to sign a for-
mal contract with Ceres
Environmental Services for emer-
gency storm debris removal as debris
continued to pile up along city streets
earlier this month.

SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader
City Manager Michael Czymbor
said he plans to interview next week
two candidates for Fernandina Beach
Fire Chief to replace former chief
Danny Leeper, who resigned earlier
this year. They are Daniel Roy Hanes,
currently a battalion chief for the city
of Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue
Department, and Edward J. Moran, a
former fire chief in Palm Beach and
Hollywood.
Czymbor had formed a committee
tasked with reducing the dozens of
applicants to a short list of "10 or 11."
That was done, and now Czymbor
hopes to extend an offer to one of the
-two finalists within the next few weeks.
"I want a well-rounded chief that
has experience in all aspects of fire-res-
cue, someone who can be a motivator,
somebody who can think outside the
box for creative problem solving, and
someone who can deal with the ever-
changing environment we work in,"
Czymbor said. "... I want someone who
views the fire department as part of a
team rather than a stand-alone depart-
ment."

Do-over


coming for


annexation

MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
The city essentially must start over
on the annexation process for 53 prop-
erties on South Fletcher Avenue,
Fernandina Beach Commissioners
were told Tuesday.
City Attorney Tammi Bach said the
city must again give notice to residents
within the affected area, schedule two
public hearings, approve a new ordi-
nance to replace a faulty one and set a
new election date.
That will satisfy at least one of the
objections to the annexation, raised by
attorney Wesley Poole on behalf of
unnamed clients.
"As you know I haveraised certain
procedural defects in the adoption
process ... the most recent of which
was the discovery that one of the prop-
erty owners was not provided written
notice of the proposed annexation," in
violation of state law, Poole informed
the city in a letter Sept 12.
The city gave notice to a deceased

For the Record
The News-Leader reported on
page 3A Sept. 17 that Drew and
Parker Scott are clients of attor-
ney Wesley Poole and parties to a
possible lawsuit by local residents
that oppose annexation of their
Property into the city. In fact, the
Scotts are not parties to the law-
suit.
Poole did represent the Scotts
and expressed their concerns
about the annexation at a
Fernandina Beach Commission
meeting Aug. 19. But Poole con-
firmed Wednesday that the Scotts
were not involved in the prospec-
tive lawsuit challenging the annex-
ation. He declined to identify his
current clients that are party to
that possible lawsuit

Formed about three years
ago, the committee is part of a
state program that helps local
governments revitalize their
working waterfronts. A total
of 21 towns have been desig-
nated Waterfronts Florida
Partnership Communities.
They receive technical and
financial assistance from the
Department of Community
Affairs, which helps them cre-
ate a "community-designed
vision plan" for their water-
fronts.
According to Lou Goldman,
chair of the committee, Fer-
nandina Beach still faces a
number of hurdles in develop-
ing the waterfront one of,
them being the lack of an over-
seer for the different groups
and interests involved.
City Manager, Michael
Czymbor also made this point
during a meeting Sept. 9, call-
ing it a "fragmented decision-
making approach." He noted
that a master plan is needed,
with one person to pull the dif-
ferent elements together but
that would cost money.
Some of those elements
include the Community
Redevelopment Area; Boat-
ing Infrastructure Program
Grant; a plan by architectural
firm Zev Cohen for Front
Street; designs by the Parks
and Recreation Department; a
welcome center design by VIA
Concepts in Jacksonville; dock-
age plans for the city marina;
Atlantic Seafood Bait and
Tackle; the city boat ramp; and
outside interests such as Lane
.Develop-ment.
One example of the lack of
communication was a decision
the Waterfronts Committee
made at a previous meeting on
sun shelters designed by local
architect Randy Rice. The com-
mittee was told to choose one
of five designs for the sun shel-
ters; which lre to be con-
structed over benches along.
the ciry '.6.1a7lt runL I(..,
After spending several
hours choosing one design,
the committee submitted its
decision to the city only to
find out later that it had no
authority to choose the design.
That, according to city Com-
munity Development Director
Marshall McCrary, would be
up to the Historic District
Council and zoning code,
because the sun shelters also
must comply with CRA design

guidelines.
'"We thought we had a deci-
sion to make," said committee
member Steve Coldwell,
owner of Fantastic Fudge. "We
took time to come up with a
recommendation."
Goldman said later that the
waterfronts committee chose a
more traditional design for the
sun shelters, while the HDC
chose a design more in keep-
ing with the "industrial water-
'front" look of the CRA guide-
lines.
Another point of contention
has been the city's lack of an
overall design for the water-
front. City commissioners have
approved a design for parking
lots C and D, which also
encompasses a plan for a wel-
come center. But nothing so
far has been approved for park-
ing lots A and B, on the north
end of the city waterfront.
Committee member Eric
Bartelt had his own solution
to that problem, and presented
committee members with his
plan for parking lots A and B.
It features walkways, water
fountains and trees, and
reduces the number of parking
spaces from 110 to 77.
Bartelt said after the meet-
ing that the city should be con-
cerned about developing the
waterfront piecemeal.
"The city needs to be able
to do the engineering for the
whole waterfront," said Bartelt
"It could be more expensive
to do things separately." He
said it made sense to him to
get a set of plans in the works
-for Lots A and B.
Bartelt, who was recently
appointed to the committee,
said there were four different
sets of plans that he knew of
for the waterfront, one of
which has been approved by
city commissioners. The water-
fronts committee, he said, was
planning to meet later in the
month to update its plan
because many things have
changed since it was submitted
over a year ago. Members will
then go over the revised plan
with the Parks & Recreation
Department and submit it to
the city.

the fire chief, who has emer-

City Attorney Tammi Bach
said that, in her legal opinion,
there was a "contractual gap"
with Advanced Disposal (State-
line) because its contract says it
will pick up yard debris, but it
doesn't say how much. The pre-
vious contract placed a limit on
how much yard debris the com-
pany would pick up without
charging an additional fee.
Under the new contract, fees
went up this year but the yard
debris limit was removed.

regulations, the city's accumu-

video equipment that is still
used at the school, and the
assistance of a University of
Florida professor and "profes-
sional voice talent" from Los
Angeles.
Hicks described the docu-
mentary as being, "pretty much
a voiceover over pictures of his-
toric Amelia Island." The esti-
mated cost of the project was
$11,000, although some of the
equipment purchased has been
used for other projects as well.
"It was filmed by students,
edited by students," Hicks said.
"Pretty much the hardest part
of it all was finding all of the
pictures."
John Sample, a 2008 gradu-
ate of Fernandina Beach High
School and currently a student
at the University of North
Florida, edited the documen-
tary. He admitted it was frus-
trating at times, but when he
saw the final product he was
proud.
"There were definitely times
where I almost really wanted
to quit, there were certain situ-
ations where I would be doing
things backwards, I would take
two steps-forward just to have
to go back and ...-I felt. like I
wasn't getting it anywhere," he
said. "But when I saw the final
product, it was definitely worth
it"
Hicks admitted a documen-
tary about the history of Amelia
Island was not as exciting as
other projects students take on
in television production.
"It wasn't always fun," he
said. "I'm sure it's more fun to
do a music video than to look up
old pictures from the 1800s ...

Hicks said he got the idea
from a former assistant princi-

"He said the island has a lot

'Vision plan nears completion

News-Leader

A representative from the
consulting firm assisting
Nassau County in its visioning
plan gave county commission-
ers a status .update at their
meeting Wednesday. The
Vision 2032 project, which
began in February, included a
series of public meetings where
Nassau County residents could

good job reducing our debt,

position than the taxpayers

Crawford recommended
the board use more than $6
million of unallocated cash to
fund his proposed millag6 roll-
back. "You can do it with no
decrease in services. You can
- do it with no cuts in person-
nel," he said. "... My recom-
mendation is simply, add (that
money) to the pile. To that, my
office has added over $4 nail- .
lion." ..
Marshall said she was dis-
gusted that the board had
forced Crawford to use the pub-
lic comment time. "I am truly
appalled at this board. I am
ashamed to be a part of it," she
said. "... It's become a contest
(between the board and the
clerk)."
"We as a board have gone
through the budget. We've
already set the millage rate,"
Commissioner Mike Boyle
said. "The other three of us feel
it was legitimately done. We
could be just as upset at you
for going behind our backs to
have (Crawford) come in and
do your bidding for you."
"No, sir, I did not go behind
your back," Marshall said. "...
We should have all collectively
met together, but it doesn't
work that way, because it's
become a little contest."
Marshall then ceded the chair
to Cotmmissioner Barry,
Holloway, who acted, as the
board chairman for the remain-

'"The options before you
were to either control growth
or just allow it to happen," said
Reggie Smith of MGT of
America. "The three top areas
(of public interest) were future
growth, economic develop-
ment and preservation of open
space.
"We've tried to determine,
what does the county look like
now, what do you want to look
like 25 years from now in 2032,


der of the meeting.
"If this were to be adopted,
how much would this reduce
the tax bill on an individual
home?" Boyle asked.
"Abodt- 80 bucks on
$100,000," Crawford said.
"John, you've sat in these
chairs," Boyle said, referring
to Crawford's stint as a county
commissioner. "Did you ever
come up with a budget that
everybody likes?" "
"I don't think.we ever even
came, up with an idea that
everybody liked,' Crawford
said,.- "
'"That's my point," Boyle
said. "We tried'hard to come
up with a budget that was fair
and equitable for everybody....
These are tough economic
times not just for the county,
but for the whole nation. ... I
think it's extremely important
to maintain a healthy reserve."
"I didn't come here to argue
tonight," Crawford said. "I did-
n't come here. to embarrass
you. I came here to offer a
thought, because I know in
your hearts you're here to help
the taxpayers. ... You're not
being reckless (if you adopt
the lower millage rates). You
haven't been reckless. The
financial condition of this
county- has dramatically
improved."
"Because of your position
and your respect in the com-
munity, when you say there's
fat in the budget, people are
going to listen to you," Boyle
said. "Do you know where
there's fat (in the budget)?"
Crawford did not directly

and what do you need to do to
get there?" he added.
Smith said the visioning
process was nearing comple-
tion. "Once we get the outline
approved by the steering com-
mittee, we will start working
on the final plan and present it
before the board," he said.
Commissioner Jim B.
Higginbotham asked if the
visioning plan would deal in
specifics with regard to growth
management or density issues.

"You're not bleeding money
anymore, but some of the tax-
payers are," he said. 'We can
help them make it. That $80 or
$100 is just as good in their
pocket as it is in ours... You've
come a long 'way. I just think
that we're in extraordinary
times, and they call for extraor-
dinary action, extraordinary
imagination and extraordinary
leadership."
Marshall urged the com-
mission to support Crawford's
proposal. "We all know the tax-
payers are hurting," she said.
"Eighty dollars may not seem
like much, .but when we
repealed that five-cent gas tax,
that five cents was nothing to
some people, but it was every-
thing to other people."
Commissioner Jim B.
Higginbotham, however, sus-
pected an ulterior motive
behind Crawford's plan. "Does
this have anything to do with
that $700,000?" he asked, refer-
ring to the budget transfer
Crawford had requested and
the board denied.
"No, it doesn't," Crawford
said. "... I don't think there's
anything new here. I'm your
(chief financial officer) and I
will continue to bring you finan-
cial recommendations."
Following Crawford's pres-
entation, the board tentatively
approved all elements of the
2009 budget as written. At each
"juncture, 'Marshall moved' to'
roTl the millage back to rates
that would be in line ,with
Crawford's proposal, but none
of her motions were seconded,
so all failed without a vote.
Some members of the audi-
ence, however, urged the board
to consider Crawford's pro-
posal. "We're getting a grow-
ing number of people whose


"Visions are always broad
statements," Growth
Management Director Walter
Fufidio said. "Specifics come
later through the comprehen-
sive plan."
Smith agreed. "The vision-

decide what your priorities are,
then you move forward
through the comprehensive
plan."

incomes have dried up, and
they can't afford to have their
garbage picked up, and the
county wants to impose a $50-
a-day fine on these people," said
Don Jones, a member of the
Code Enforcement Board. "... I
think you need to take into
account the fact that the econ-
omy is in the tank, and it ain't
coming back. ... I think you
might want to think before rais-
ing taxes on these people."
"We've actually lowered
taxes," Holloway said.
"You might warit to think
about lowering them more a
lot more," Jones said.
Nancy Jones-Royal, Jones'
wife, agreed with her husband.
"Mr. Boyle commented that we
must keep a strong reserve in
our budget for unforeseen
things in the future," she said.
"I want to state for the record
that I think we're at that point
now.... I've lived in Washington,
D.C. I've seen beggars on the
street. If we don't do some-
thing, we're going to start see-
ing that in Fernandina Beach."
Holloway said he sympa-
thized, but the county had to
find a balance between low tax-
ation and workable govern-
ment "Since I've been on the
commission, we've lowered
taxes every year," he said. 'The
property appraiser across the

Phone scam targets


motorists' information


Employees of the Nassau
County Tax Collector's Office
and Florida Department of
Motor Vehicles never phone
citizens to request personal
information. That is the mes-
sage Nassau County Tax
Collector John M. Drew is
hoping to share with residents
following the report of a fraud-
ulent phone call received by a
Hilliard resident on
Wednesday.
The Hilliard resident noti-
fied the Nassau County Tax
Collector's Office after receiv-
ing the fraudulent phone call.
The caller identified herself
as being an employee of the
Department of Motor Vehicles
and asked the resident for '
license and car tag informa-
tion.
"Nassau County citizens
need to be aware that employ-
ees of the Florida Department
of Highway Safety Motor
Vehicles never call citizens
and ask for your vehicle reg-
istration information. If you
receive such a call, please noti-


fy the Nassau County Sheriff's
Department immediately, as
well as notifying the Tax
Collector's Office," Drew said.
"In this particular instance,
the caller claimed to be raising
funds for a non-profit organi-
zation and asked the Hilliard
resident to provide personal
motor vehicle and drivers
license information."
The person placing the
fraudulent, or scam phone call,
claimed to be representing a
non-profit agency supported
in-Florida by the sale of spe-
cialty license plates.
"According to the Hilliard
citizen, the caller sounded
very professional and was well
spoken," Drew said. "I hope
our citizens are not misled or
taken in by similar scam
phone calls, and I want every-
one to know: Neither the
DHSMV nor the Tax
Collector's Office will ever call
and ask for a driver's license
number or vehicle registra-
tion information by phone
call."

'Uglifications

n fond memory of my hero, Theodor .
Seuss Geisel, March 2, 1904-Sept. 24, 1991. .
Way out here on my end of town where
the "grickle grass" still grows verdant in
the spring and summer, the Once-lers have
been hard at it maiming and destroying as
many trees as possible. I've been waiting to
see a "thneed" factory go up in the place of
one of these uglifications of Mother Earth but
mostly what I've seen take place so far is just
hacking, cutting and dying brown wounds in CUP
the woods where trees, saplings and shrub- JOE
bery once stood. .
It's enough to make me want to pop out of
the stump of one of these poor murdered trees Joe Paln
and take drastic action. I want to run up and
grab one of these chainsaw massacrers by the you've ma

Alas, I don't think even the "great Lifted flittered fr

parts. If only Dr. Seuss could've turned his Where

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Thankyott, fire/rescue
On July 18, we arrived in Fernandina Beach
for what was to be a fun and relaxing week-long
vacation. On Saturday morning, July 19, we found
our daughter (26 years old) unresponsive.
Despite all the efforts put forth that day, she was
pronounced dead at approximately 5:30 that after-
noon at Baptist Medical in Jacksonville. We grieve
for our loss and will cherish our daughter's mem-
ory.
However, the intent of this letter is this: we
wish to thank the Fernandina Beach Fire/Rescue
Department When we called 911, what seemed
like an eternity to us was in fact a very short
time for their arrival. Their response time was
very quick. Within 8-12 minutes of the call, there
were at least a dozen people on site. The room
filled with people working diligently with the sin-
gle purpose of reviving our daughter. They
worked for a very long time and did not give up.
When she was taken away by ambulance, she had
regained a pulse. We later learned in Jacksonville
that her brain had gone too long without oxygen
before we found her that morning and no amount
of effort would have made her brain restart
. So againwe thankyou for your efforts. Weare
proud to- know, that people& like the Fernandiria
Beach Fire and Rescue Department are-oily a'911;
call away.

Transitions
Right after tropical storm Fay passed by here
I got sick. I have cirrhosis of the liver and suffer
from depression. I am a veteran and have been
fighting with the VA to get my benefits. I was
homeless when I got sick and passed out in my
tent at Peters Point I was taken to Baptist hos-
pital emergency room and then to St. Luke's.
They performed procedures anid tests on me.
When I was discharged I did not have a place to
stay. I was told to get in touch with Jo Heller
Transitions Home. They have helped me so
much with so many things and I thank them.
Thank you so much..

Words of wisdom
Thank you for the wonderful article titled
"The war in the womb continues" in the Sept. 5
issue of our News-Leader.,
It was not only well written, Ms. Stanton pro-
vided her readers with such excellent informa-
tion and backed up her words of wisdom with
facts of truth and that's called journalism in its
best form. Thank you again for printing same.

True crime
Upon perusing the News-Leader on a regular


basis, I take particular notice of articles on local
crime and the police report. This taxpayer is
truly astonished by the numerous.drug-related
arrests, DUIs and violent crimeoccurring over-
whelmingly in the jurisdiction of the Nassau
County Sheriff's Office, Such crimes as bank
robberies, assaults on county beaches and meth
lab activity are all recent newsworthy events.
Why then is our sheriff enforcing city municipal
codes and not using our tax dollars to catch
criminals? .
Sheriff Seagraves seems content to send his
deputies out as a private security force to bene-
fit certain elite businesses in non-criminal mat-
ters! The sheriff owes an explanation not only to
taxpayers, but also to the victims of serious
crimes committed while deputy manpower is
diverted to civil squabbles.

Goodjob!
I would like to thank Joe and Diane Warwick
for the great job they-did in making the first
Songwriting Festival in Fernandina Beach a real-
ity.- I know it took a lot of hard work and courage
-toiniitiatesttch an event, and I'm glad tosayitwas
a sicess!
In, addition to opening the doors for local
musicians, it boosted business for the local
restaurants that also participated, e.g., Wicked
Davey's, The Palace, O'Kane's, Sandy Bottoms,
Hammerhead and The Plantation.
I wish Joe and Diane continued success in the
future and hope that the Songwriter's Festival
becomes an annual event.

Green with envy
The current owners of the Florida House Inn,
Joe and Diane Warwick, are obviously envious of
the Green Turtle Tavern's success. They could
use that success to their advantage if they were
willing to work in harmony and share the unique
qualities that each business can offer. Instead,
they have been hostile neighbors ever since they
bought the place.
A Florida House employee calls the Warwicks
"caring community members" (Sept 12). If they
are so caring, why won't they pay their proper-'
ty taxes? Last time I saw the public tax records,
the. Warwicks owed tens of thousands of dol-
lars, long overdue, which would put money back
into this.community that they supposedly care
about.
The Warwicks have been praised for their
support of the songwriting community, yet they
charged such high prices for their Songwriter
Festival events that many musicians, couldn't
afford to attend.
Singer-songwriters who perform at the Green
Turtle are harassed by the Warwicks even when

they're playing indoors. Ironically, at-times the,
music coming out of the Frisky' Mermaid has
been so loud that it can be heard on the Green
Turtle's porch. This summer the Florida House
filed a lawsuit against the city of Fernandina,
and in the meantime they are abusing Nassau
County services by calling the sheriff for alleged
noise violations.
Maybe they should consider putting the
Florida House on the market so that a competent,
friendly businessperson can save it before it's too
late. A new proprietor would quickly discover that
the Green Turtle's owner has great ideas for
helping both businesses work hand-in-hand suc-
cessfully.

I would like to respond to the letter ("Why
Sarah Palin?) about Ms. Palin one by one:
I am -a skeptic about man's role in global
warming. Is it happening, yes, we're up one
degree in 50-plus years. But ponder this, the
middle of the United States was once covered
with glaciers which continue to recede. They
are believed to be the cause of the Great Lakes.
I know, we (mankind) caused this.
Ms. Palin billed per diem when she was not
in the governor's mansion. OK, then they didn't
have to pay all the expenses that would have
been incurred if she stayed at the mansion. Per
diem is nothing new. What do you think we tax-


payers pay for President Bush to go home to
Crawford?
Ms. Palin did stop construction of the bridge
to nowhere, she did so before she was the VP
candidate; was money saved? I bet so.
I don't care if she made a profit on the luxu-
ry jet, when you trade your car in do you make
a profit? At least she got rid of it and the money
that it cost to run and maintain.
The verdict is out on the bears; their status is
dependent on who you talk to. We saved the alli-
gator, we can save the polar bear if need be.
I know nothing about the wolf killing in
Alaska. I do know they were reintroduced in the
mountain west and immediately became a prob-
lem since they no longer have any predators
that would cull their numbers. And I think there
is more to this issue than making sure there are
caribou and moose for hunters. I know most of
the.southern states have had to increase the
allowable kill each year because if not the deer
would starve (too many animals, not enough
food).
I know nothing about book banning.
Anyone, at any time, can pick at a candidate.
They can construe the facts any way they want.
But Ms. Palin busted crooked members of her
own party! Seems that shows some integrity. I
don't agree with all of her beliefs but I respect her.
Remember the saying "He who is without sin,
cast the first stone".

VIEPOINT/MALCOLM A NODEN/FERNANDINA BEACH


Tourism p
ome things we know for certain
("Tourism: Principles, Practices &
Philosophies," Goeldner & Ritchie).
Among these is that tourism develop-
ment and expansion looks very attractive with
the right preconditions, i.e., some combination
of natural, scenic, historical, archeological, cul-
tural and climate attractions. Unfortunately,
many of its advocates look at tourism uncriti-
cally and see it as a panacea for solving an
area's development problems. This view is
unrealistic because benefits are often accompa-
nied by detrimental consequences. Therefore,
we need to develop policy, and a well devised
planning cycle in order to carefully consider,
and deal with both the pros and cons of future
tourism expansion in Nassau County.
Some in our county, believing that they live
in areas outside the major tourism demand
corridors, are willing to ignore what might
happen elsewhere in the county because it
does not appear to them that they will be
affected in one way or another by the flowof
inbound tourists. Recently, I have heard it said
in the agricultural areas of our county that
tourism is an "... East Side, beach area prob-
lem, and not for us to be concerned with it."
While such impressions of the geographic
facts of local tourism demand may be partially


planning anc
correct, the associated mis-
understanding of tourism's
countywide social, econom-.
ic, environmental and politi-
cal effects are not. In short,
tourism is not a "we 'uns
and them 'uns" situation,
but one in which every
S Bcounty resident has a clear-
Noden ly defined stake.
First, let's look at some
of the major benefits of
tourism. It provides employment opportuni-
ties, both skilled and unskilled, because it is a
labor-intensive industry. It increases personal
and corporate incomes. It requires the devel-
opment and maintenance of an infrastructure
that will also help stimulate local commerce
and industry. It justifies environmental protec-
tion and improvement. It increases local gov-
ernment revenues. It helps to diversify the
local economy. It creates a favorable image for
our Florida destination.
It provides tourist and recreational facilities
that may be used by our local population, who
might not otherwise be able to afford to devel-
op these facilities. Thus, comes about the
three-part mantra of tourism's proponents:
jobs, taxes and economic multipliers

policy

By contrast, some of the maj
tages of tourism are that it deve
demand. It can create economic
great that its economic benefits
diverts funds from more promise
economic development. It create
lems derived from income and s
ences; it often stimulates undesi
such as prostitution, illegal gam
other crimes. It degrades the na
environment. It poses the diffici
sonality, and it adds to the inflat
ues and the price of local goods
Thus, argue tourism's opponent
tourism outweigh its benefits. '
In fact, both of these extreme
points are incorrect in their con
since each, like those in the store
blind men and the elephant, has

the "facts" underlining their poi
The overwhelming truth is t

there was some way, any way, we could just
get up and sneak out of the room.
But he won't let us oh no. He's full of brim-
stone and fire and he won't let us go.
He takes us by the ear like a wayward child
and shows us a patch of assaulted turf and
yells: In the name of all that was good,; do you
have any idea what a Tuscany is anyway? It
bears no resemblance to this scenery sore. It's
a breathtakingly beautiful place near the north
coast of Italy, where there are rolling green
hillsides and lush vineyards and more impor-
tantly, of trees, there are plenty. This place is a
.scab, I say. Just look around you. If I'm wrong,
I'll goaway. The landscape is bare and there's
nothing but chunks of concrete and rusted
rebar poking up there! Are you blind and can-
not see it, or are you just smirkingly, stunning-
ly, stupidly mean and don't care?
After a few more minutes of harrumphing
and galumphing and hectoring and railing, Dr.
Seuss and his friend the Lorax glance up at the
sky and shake their heads and tears flow from
their eyes. Oh bother what's the use, he cried,
everyone of you is silly as a goose, though I
must admit I've met a goose or two in my day
with far more on the ball than any of you, I
really must say.
Then he snapped his fingers and disap-
peared in a cloud of steam. A healthy young
sapling grew on the spot where he'd been and
a tiny, voice from somewhere above whispered
. so softly that we could barely hear it. Stop
killing all my trees'I say. It's a disgrace and a
sin that you won't let them stay.

Plantation hosts Freedom banquet


I]lic tr iitulk- continues, our dreams
are kept alivc. It's freedom we stand for
and freedom we earn. Many gave their
lives for it, but many have been
spurned. Someday we all must face the
one who is standing at the gate.
Prejudice is a heart who has learned to
hate. But God's love takes care of it all.
Again this year, Amelia Island
Plantation hosted the Nassau County'
Branch NAACP Freedom Fund Awards
Banquet. An annual affair and, if the
record is checked, we may find that
most of the banquets have been held at
the Plantation.
The National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People theme
has been "'The Future Begins Today ...
Building Leaders for Tomorrow." We
are very proud to say some of our lead-
ers for tomorrow from our Youth
Council were present to enjoy the
evening with the branch. They were
Ryan Amy, Raven Hardy, Mykita Jones
and Malikah Akbar.
Dr. Barbara Ann Barnaby Darby,
president of the North Campus of
Florida Community College at
Jacksonville, was the guest speaker.
Courtney Tyson-Shelby serves as presi-
dent of the Nassau County branch and
has worked very hard the past three


S.i years keeping the
branch in the right
.., 'i: direction. In her mes-
sage from the presi-
dent's desk, she says
many dare to hope this
presidential race would
raise the goals of those
young black males
hoping this will encour-
NOW AND age the seemingly
THEN hopeless to take more
responsibility for .
improving the world in
Maybelle which they live, saying,
Kirkland "We all must do more
to reclaim the dream
that Dr. King so eloquently spoke of,
remembering that 'it takes a village.'"
As we continue working together in
our community, remember the NAACP
is not only for black people, it's for all
people. Come let us work together,
fighting against discrimination in all
areas, whether it be employment, hous-
ing, education in schools, criminal jus-
tice in the courts, as well as health mat-
ters. We are all God's people.
The awards this year for Nassau
County branch of the NAACP were
given to Myers Kurtz, Neil Frink, the
Rev. Jeremiah Robinson and New Zion


Baptist Church, Kimberly Still and St.
Peter's Episcopal Church, Arva Butler,
Amelia Island Plantation, Dr. Darby and
to the Journey Church.
Some of our elected officials were on
hand to support the NAACP as well as
seeking re-election. We have the power
to make a difference in our community.
Your vote will only count if you cast it. If
you don't get involved and vote, how can
you keep the dream alive? Remember to
cast your vote Nov. 4. It does make a dif-
ference.
Our prayers are with the Sykes and
William family of the late Coach Nelson
William. Members of the Peck High
School family will tell you that Coach
Nelson was one of the best ever to
coach the game. We, the Peck family,
feel your pain and we definitely share
your loss. We pray God's blessings con-
tinue to be with you all.

MILITARY NEWS


Navy Seaman Recruit
Donald E. Lindsey, son of
Donald E. and stepson of
Susan Lindsey of Callahan,
recently completed U.S. Navy
basic training at Recruit
Training Command, Great
Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week pro-
gram, Lindsey completed a
variety of training, which
included classroom study and
practical instruction on naval
customs, first aid, firefighting,
water safety and survival, and
shipboard and aircraft safety.
An emphasis was also placed
on physical fitness.
The capstone event of boot


camp is "Battle Stations," an
exercise that gives recruits
the skills and confidence they
need to succeed in the fleet.
"Battle Stations" is designed
to galvanize the basic warrior
attributes of sacrifice, dedica-
tion, teamwork and
endurance in each recruit
through the practical applica-
tion of basic Navy skills and
the core values of honor,
courage and commitment. Its
distinctly "Navy" flavor was
designed to take into account
what it means to be a sailor.
Lindsey is a 2007 graduate
of Roanoke High School of
Robersonville, N.C.

Embracing change as a way oflife, even when it stinks


"What's that smell?" I final-
ly asked after a few hours on
the job.
"What smell?" my new
boss replied.
"It smells like rotten eggs,"
I said with a disgusted look on
my face.
, "Oh, that smell," he said as
he chuckled. "That's the
drinking fountain. You'll get
used to it after a while," he
smirked, as if it wyas no big
deal. As he closed the door to
his air-conditioned office,
leaving the shop mechanic
and me in the scorching heat,
I wasn't sure if he was joking
or telling the truth. One thing
was clear, however, if that
*smell was the water fountain,
I sure wasn't going to be

drinking from
it.
Now you
need to
understand, I
moved to
Florida from
up North
where the
water is as
clean as the
mountain air.
Never in my
life had I
experienced
anything like
this. To be


honest, I had no clue there
even was such a thing. I
mean, water that smells like .
rotten eggs? Who would have
thought it? Either way, if what


the boss told mne was true, the
fact that someone would actu-
ally plumb it up to a water
fountain and expect people to
drink it was a bit troubling.
As I made my way to the
corner of the shop to confirm
where the smell was really
coming from, the unfortunate
reality became clear. There it
was, sitting in the corner. I
guess the fact that it was a
water cooler and not just a
water fountain was somehow
supposed to make it all
acceptable, but not in my
- world. The smell was horri-
ble.
Little did I know that in
just a few short days things
were going to change. No,
they didn't get a new source


of water or even a good filter
system for that matter. The
change happened in me.
Granted, it came slowly, but
eventually I broke down.
There in the middle of
Florida's summer heat, and
having already drunk my own
water supply, I decided to
reconsider the vow I had
made about not drinking from
the fountain.
Well, as you might imag-
ine, it was everything I had
expected. "Yuck," I remember
thinking as the smell filled my
nose. "That is absolutely
gross." Yet somehow, after I
pulled away and went back to
work, my thirst got the best of
me. Before long, and not quite
as slowly as the first time


around, I eased back over to
the stinking fountain to drink
a little more. Truth is, before
it was all over with I was guz-
zling it down just like every-
one else. Now I know that not
everyone in Florida has or
drinks sulfur water, and most
of those who do have found
ways to treat it so it doesn't
smell so bad, but I must tell
you the experience that day
taught me a valuable lesson.
Isn't it interesting how the
things we say we will never
do, we often end up doing if
we get desperate enough? I
know that has both a positive
and a negative, side to it, but
in the hands of God our des-
peration is a powerful tool.
Just like the apostle Peter


in the book ot Acts, chapter
10, God used Peter's extreme
hunger to get him to embrace
some things that before he
was unwilling to. The result of
Peter's change impacted the
entire world. Could it be that
God wants to change us, too?
Could it be that some change
only comes when we get real-
ly desperate? I think so.
Either way, as for me I've
learned that though 'at first
change may really stink, in
the end it's life to those who
embrace it as a part of the will
of God.

Leaseback
In 2007, 1.5 million U.S.
homeowners began the fore
closure process and that nu
ber may hit nearly 2.5 milli
this year. Many borrowers,
who also are under pressure
from increasing food and fu
costs, are unable to keep up
with the combination of eve
rising mortgage rates and
declining prices. In many
instances, consumers owe
more than their homes are
worth.
In an effort to find econ
ic stability, many home and
business owners are turning
to sale leasebacks as one
option to retain ownership
their properties.
The idea is simple: an
owner sells his 'or her home
and then leases it back fror
the new owner in hopes of
paying a smaller monthly r
compared to the existing
mortgage cost, thereby ave
ing foreclosure and keeping
place to live.
Sale leasebacks have be
taking place for decades, h
ever, more people have bee
choosing this option in rec
months. Homeowners often
make a deal with family me
bers or investors to let then
stay put after selling their
property. Consumers can
obtain maximum protection:
by having their real estate
attorney review the paper-
work. .

Estate Investor magazine,

News-Leader Staff

Nassau district sclfools
reaped more than $850,000 in
bonus money this week from
the state Department of
Education.
In total about $147.1 million
was distributed to 1,959 Florida'
schools to reward academic
achievement and improvement
during the 2007-8 school year.
The money each school
earns is based on the state's
school grading system. Schools
that either receive an A grade or
improve at least one grade
from the previous year are eli-
gible to receive the recognition
funds.
Schools that qualify receive
$85 for each student at the
school. The funds are then allo-
cated based on a j6int decision
by the school's staff and school
advisory council. These funds
can be for non-recurring facul-
ty bonuses, educational equip-
ment, new technology or hir-


Nassau from a D to a B. As a
result Fernandina received
$80,886, Hilliard $68,122 and.
West Nassau $89,419.
Of the 1,959 schools that
were eligible for recognition
funds in 2008, there were 1,202
schools that maintained an "A,"
32 new schools that earned an
"A," 348 schools that improved

to an "A," and 350 schools that
improved to a grade other than
an "A."
The grades are based on
points schools earn in nine
areas through the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Tests, including the percentage
of students meeting high stan-
dards or making learning gains
-in math and reading, and the
lowest 25 percent making
gains.
A slip-up in one area can
cost a school a grade, as hap-
pened with Yulee High, which
had enough points for a C in
2007-8 but was penalized with
a D for failing to make gains
by students scoring below level
3 on the FCATs.
Since the program began in
1999, Florida has awarded
more than $1.129 billion in
school recognition.

Lady Pirates

5-1, unbeaten

in district play
BETH JONES
News-leader
The Lady Pirates rolled to 5-1 and
were 2-0 in the district heading into
Thursday's district matchup with
Bishop Snyder.
Fernandina Beach High School's
volleyball team topped Ribault 25-8,25-
14, 25-12 on Sept. 11 in a district
matchup.
Shelly Silva recorded 10 service
points, Caroline Garner had four aces
and four assists, Hannah Whitfield
had nine kills and 10 points and Jimi
Severance had four digs for FBHS.
On Monday, the Lady Pirates host-
ed Hilliard and won 25-20,25-20,25-21.
For FBHS, Silva had 17 service
points and four aces, Joncier Smith
had 15 kills and Garner had 34 assists.
"Hilliard has a very scrappy team,"
FBHS Coach Shannon Strumlauf said.
'They dig everything up so it is hard
to put the ball down. We stuck with it,
played every point and came out on
top."
Baker County was Fernandina's
latest victim. The Lady Pirates defeat-
ed the Wildcats 25-11, 25-16, 25-20 on
Tuesday.
"It was a good win against a team
that we just couldn't beat last year,"
Strumlauf said. "We had good defense
and great serves. Our good passes
allowed us to hit the ball well too."
Whitfield had 16 kills and Smith
had 14, Erica Rodriguez had seven
digs and 17 points, Garner had 29
assists.
"The girls were really upbeat and
on against Baker County," Strumlauf
said. "Our defense was strong and
Joncier and Hannah had really big
hits during the match.
"We have really just been working
hard to improve and get better each
game. So far, we have done a great job
at it. The girls seem to just play and
not let anything get to them from one
play to the next. .. .;)i,
"We have really focused this year -
on just worrying about one point and,
play at a time and not focusing on
what we didn't do. We move past it,
make the adjustment and hopefully
correct our mistake for the next time
it could happen. The girls go out and
just take care of business."
The FBHS junior varsity team is 6-
3 on the season. Their three losses
were to Bishop Kenny, Providence
and most recently to Tallahassee-Leoh
over the weekend during a tourna-
ment at Middleburg.
"The JV team has been doing
great," Strumlauf said. -
"Savannah Young and Perrin Bille
were strong in the middle with big
hits and blacks," Strumlauf said.
'Tiffany Tudor played great defense
with several tough digs .throughout

Injuries notjust on


Anyone who saw the video
of Notre Dame football
coach Charlie Weis' injury
this past weekend when
the Fighting Irish took on Michigan
now knows what many of us have
known for years. Football injuries
db not occur only on the field, but
also can affect those standing on
the sideline.
Notre Dame linebacker John
Ryan collided with Weis on a punt
return. The 6-foot-5, 264-pound
Ryan had been hit by a Michigan
player and slid into the back of
Weis' legs. Weis had been looking
upfield when the hit happened as
the play had already passed him.
"I never saw it coming," Weis
said, immediately knowing that his
knee was "blown out."
Weis was attended to by the
medical staff and his knee was
placed into an immobilization
brace. His physical examination
confirmed that he had torn his ACL
and MCL. Weis, who previously
was the New England Patriots'
offensive coordinator, commented
in the post-game press conference
that "Brady's got nothing on me,"
referring to NFL MVP Tom Brady,
who was lost for the season on
opening weekend after tearing the
same two knee ligaments.
Weis is not expected to miss any
games and is going to be treated
non-surgically at this time. He is
not the first Notre Dame coach to
be taken down. Former coach Dan
Devine also once broke his leg in a
sideline hit.
This wasn't the first time Weis
had been hit on the sidelines. As
the offensive coordinator of the
New England Patriots in 2002, Weis
was hit as a player ran out of


Sm bounds. Hewas
actually standing
behind backup
quarterbacks
T Rohan Davey and
- Damon Huard, but
was still knocked
down. At that time
he joked with Tom
Brady, '"Those
guys don't play
SPORTS one snap, so they
should at least pro-,
MEDICINE tect me."
GREGORY A similar thing
happened a couple
SMITH. M.D. of years ago to
------ Penn State coach
Joe Paterno, who
broke his leg in a sideline hit.
Wisconsin's DeAndre Levy and
Penn State tight end Andrew
Quarless tumbled into Paterno after
a Quarless catch and tackle by the
Badger linebacker near the Penn
State sideline. DeAndre Levy's hel-
met drove into Paterno's knee,
immediately snapping it backwards
into hyperextension.
Paterno sustained a fracture of
his tibial plateau, the joint surface
at the top of his shin bone, along
with injuries to his medial collateral
ligament and posterior cruciate lig-
ament in his knee. .
Dr. Wayne Sebastianelli, Penn
State director ?f athletic medicine,
performed surgery on the 80-year-
old coach, placing several screws in
the knee to stabilize the fracture.
While the actual number of side-
line-based injuries is not officially
tracked by any medical society, any-
one on the sidelines knows just
how quickly they can occur. A few
years ago, I was covering a high
school playoff game when a sweep


the field

came around the end and the tail-
back was shoved out of bounds and
onto an 11-year-old ballgirl, Who
happened to be the head coach's
daughter.-Her leg was displaced in
an awkward position and fortunate-
ly I was able to immediately set it
and stabilize her in a cast. She has
since returned to her ballgirl posi-
tion.
One of the reasons these
injuries can occur is the players are.
,so fast; they come up on you quick-
er than you anticipate and it is hard
for you to get out of the way. You
have to be constantly aware or you
too can end up seeking treatment.
Jaguars' assistant coach Mike
Tice once sprained his knee when a '
New York Giants player was
blocked into him during a punt
return. And what is likely the worst
sideline collision ever occurred dur-
ing the 1996 NFC championship
game in Dallas when Green Bay
assistant Gil Haskell was knocked
unconscious when Cowboys safety
Darren Woodson and Packers
receiver Robert Brooks crashed
into him. Haskell, lay motionless on
the sideline for nearly 20 minutes,
having suffered a fractured skull
and sustained a brain contusion.
Haskell did ullimatiiirly rcn-'vl from
those injuries and is now the Seattle
Seahawks' offensive coordinator,

Red drum making annual fall run


B ig fishing news is
coming from the tip
of the St. Marys
south jetty rocks dur-
ing the last few hours of the
falling tide. Massive schools
of red drum have shown up
for their annual fall run in
preparation for their annual
spawning season.
"We have been catching
up to nine redfish per trip,"
Robert Walker said. "Fishing
has been excellent the last
few days for redfish weighing
upwards of 30 pounds. Looks
like the Big fall run of red
drum has already arrived."
Walker fishes at the tip of
the south jetty rocks aboard
his boat, "The Music Man."
Capt. Benny Hendrix
broke in his new charter fish-
ing boat, "The Heavy Hitter,"'
recently with a very success-
ful trip to the deep waters of
the St. Marys south jetty
rocks.
"I had 11 fishermen on
board," Hendrix said. "Before
our four-hour fishing charter
was over, all 11 fishermen had
caught and released a St.
Marys red drum. Most of the
reds were measuring from 30-
40 inches."
Once you have anchored
up at the St. Marys jetty
rocks, the red drum action
can be constant, so be sure to
bring along plenty of cut bait,
large shrimp and blue crabs
for bait.
"Offshore fishing during
the last few days has been
outstanding," said Capt. Allen
Mills, skipper of the charter
fishing boat, "Wahoo II." "We
are catching a lot of big legal
red snapper and grouper too.
I hope the government does-
n't shut down our red snapper
fishery because it's the best I
have ever seen it. It just does-
n't make good sense."

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
Playgoers who like their
comedies with a healthy dose
of thrills or vice versa may
find what they're looking for
at Amelia Community
Theatre's production of
"Anybody for Murder?" The
play, which opens tonight, is a
murder mystery set on a
remote Greek island.


"It's a comedy thriller, and
in our play selection commit-
tee we always try to find a
good mystery," said director
Linda McClane. "... A lot of.
times, to find a good mystery
you've got to go to a comedy
mystery.
"We hope therell be sever-
al places where the audience
has that little jump or gasp,"
she added. "Most of the time
they'll be laughing, but we


hope to be able to make them
jump, too."
The play's authors, Brian
Clemens and Dennis Spooner,
are British. "Every time we
do an English play we have
accent coaches people with
actual British accents,"
McClane said. "(The cast) has
been great about working on
the accents. This is an

For the News-Leader
"W ite burgundy so rare it is
hardly ever seen on this
Jr side of the Atlantic,
V Marsala so fine it seldom
escapes Sicily, samples of America's
most popular wine before Prohibition,
small lot estate pinot noirs, and the
only wine produced on Amelia Island
in modern times are among the rare'
and unusual wines to be auctioned off
in the Oct. 2 kickoff event for this.
year's Amelia Island Book Festival.
The collection of more than 30
wines is a testament to the value of
small wineries and limited production
wines where perfection is the goal, not
profits, The event itself, to be held at
The Palace Saloon on Centre Street, is
a rare opportunity for Amelia Island's
oenophiles to obtain wines they might
not see in a lifetime.
Heading the list is a pair of 2003
Laboure-Roi Corton Charlemagne
Grand Cru white burgundies. Only 75
cases of this wine which was origi-
nally produced in the 12th Century at
Burgundy's Corton Hill under orders
from Charlemagne were made.
Rated a 93 by WVine & Spirits maga-
zine, the limited production quickly
fell into the hands of European collec-
tors. This is a bold wine, with tropical
:fruit and aprictbtarithias and flavors
framed by fineral and toasty oak.
From Kistler on the Sonoma Coast'
there will be a bottle of 1999 pinot noir

unmistakable sweetness, from the wel-
coming front end through the warm,
kirsch-packed finish. In blind tasting
it has held its own with the finest red
Burgundies.
There will be several distinctive
American
W NE wines in the
p & auction:
Norton
wines were
the most pop-
ular wines in
the United States in the decades
before Prohibition resulted in the
destruction of the country's vineyards.
Produced from a grape developed by
Richmond, Va., Dr. D.N. Norton in the
early 19th century, a Norton wine was
declared the "best red wine of all
nationtis" at an 1873 worldwide competi-'
tion in Vienna. Cloaked in myth for
most of the 20th Century, Norton
wines began making a comeback in
the late 1990s, led by a few Virginia
wineries including Chrysalis
Vineyards of Middleburg. The 2003
Chrysalis Estate Bottled Norton is a


big, dark wine, very Bordeaux-like.
This limited production wine is no
longer available except through a few
collectors.
Also from Chrysalis Vineyards is a
revolutionary new wine made with
whole cluster pressed Norton grapes
that are cold fermented, Sarah's Patio
Red. This light red (similar to a rose)
has an earthy aroma of strawberries
and cherries with a tangy off-dry fla-
vor. It showcases the natural fruity
aroma and flavors of Norton. There
are no tannins as a result of the fer-
mentation technique.
Dr. Jim Gildenston, a Fernandina
Beach podiatrist, had a hobby of mak-
ing wine. In 1985 he turned this hobby
into a business and created the San
Carlos Winery (named after the early
Spanish mission located at Old Town
Fernandina). He produced an off-dry
red he called "Florida Welder" from
his sub-tropical grape vitis roturidifolia
(aka muscadine). Florida Welder won
a number of awards at fairs in New
York, Atlanta and Tallahassee. A dusty
bottle of this 1985 gem from Dr. Jim's
collection will be on the auction block
on Oct 2.
When most people think of Marsala
they think of sweet cooking wine; few,
know that Marsala can be blended in a
style so fine and elegant that it can
Sonly be found in the finest European
restaurants and in the hotties of the
wealthiest and best-connected
oenophiles. The book festival wine
auction has obtained a boxed set of
two spectacular Marsalas from Florio,
the premier Marsala producer and one

Also in the set is Morsi di

Accordingly, her book pro-

"This is a fun book to read

Tobias.
The book divides Florida

One cast member, Jim
Hestand, -asked to play his
character as an American,
although the character is writ-
ten as English. "I told Linda (to
make me American) for two
reasons: it provides contrast,
because everybody else has a
British accent, and. because I
didn't want to sustain a British
accent," Hestand said.
Hestand, who plays
washed-up, alcoholic novelist
Edgar Chambers, said work-

of the cast was a treat.
"(McClane) is marvelous.
She's very insightful, and she's
very, very organized," he said.
"Everybody (in the cast) is
wonderful. We're having a
great time at it. In fact, we're
having a hard time not laugh-
