Space shuttle Discovery launches from Cape Canaveral about 7:45 p.m. Sunday, as seen from
Burney Park at American Beach. A crowd of about 50 watched and was able to see the solid rocket
boosters as they detached from the shuttle and began to fall back to Earth. The shuttle was due to
arrive Tuesday at the international space station, bringing equipment and a new crew member to join
the mission 220 miles above Earth.




State OKs FPU rate hike
State Ks 1te


TALLAHASSEE- Florida's Public
Service C:,mmn-is'iii- approved
Tuesday higher fuel and purchased
power charges for Florida Public
Utilities Co. The adjustment applies
to FPU's Noitheast Division
(Fernandina Beach) only.
Based on the ai adjusted fuel
charges, the total monthly electric
bill for residential customers using
1,000 kwh will increase from $122.39
to $129.99, beginning with the April.
billing cycle
That is more than double the
amount charged residential cus-
tomers by FPU in January 2007,
when a series of increases began. .
The Public Service Commission,
reviews utilities' projected fuel costs


annually in November and deter-
mines ithe prudent fuel costs that will
be passed on to customers. If actual
fuel costs are substantially different
from projected fuel costs, a utility can
request a mid-course adjustment, as
did FPU.
' Investor-owned utilities are
allowed to recover only the prudent,
costs tif procuring fuel and purchased
power necessary to meet customer
demand and are not allowed to make
a profit on fuel purchases.
The fuel charge appears on cus-
tomer bills as a separate line item
charge.
Also on Tuesday, the Public
Service Commission approved a
reduction in fuel and nuclear cost.


recovery charges for Progress
Energy Florida customers. That com-
pany's residential customers' bills
will decrease about $15 per month
beginning with the April billing cycle.
Based on ,Progress Energy's
revised fuel forecast, the approved
fuel cost reduction is a result of a:
decrease in the cost ofnatural gas, a
primary fuel the company uses to
generate electricity.
. The reduction in nuclear cost
recovery charges was approved as a
result of Progress Energy's request
to defer recovery of some of this
year's preconstruction costs for its
Levy County nuclear plant. For addi-
tional information, visit www.flori-.

School cuts:



'Everything is



on the table'


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
Atlantic Elementary Schoolwillbe
closed Dozens of teachers and other
employees Mil be laid off countywide.
Academic programs will be eliminated.
Extracurricular activities may be cut as
well.
That's the prognosis for Nassau
County Schools as administrators plan
to cut next year's budget by $8 mil-
lion, or 11 percent of the total.
"This is going to be as complrehen-'
sive and as deep. a cut as we've ever
had," Schools Superintendent John
Ruis said Tuesday.
"(The cuts) are going to be pretty
severe, drastic. Ift's just a matter of how
much so," he said.
The school district still anticipates
receiving millions of dollars in federal


stimulus or stabilization funds to offset
looming cuts in state funding. But it
doesn't yet know how much federal
money it will receive, or how much
state funding/will decline.
Ruis said he is going to Tallahassee
next week to learn more, but as sales
and property taxes decline in Florida
owing to'the economic recession, the
outlook is not good. The state budget
is billions of dollars short, and school
districts across the state are planning
for the worst
The Nassau County School Board
will consider March 26 whether to.
close Atlantic Elementary, as Ruis has
recommended. That would save
$900,000 in the 2009-10 budget, he said.
"We had been contemplating doing
this for a period of time because of

5 candidates for 2


seats on city board


MICHAEL PARNELL
News-Leader
There are five candidates for two
seats on the Fernandina Beach City
Commission in this year's election.
There also are four ballot questions
that would amend the city charter if
voters approve.
The election is scheduled April 14.
A runoff election, if needed, would be
May 12. The new commission will be
seated May 19. '
Jim B. Higginbotham, a former
county commissioner and city -mploy-
ee, filed the .paperwork required to


become a candidate last week. Friday
was the deadline for doing so.
Iligginbotham will contend with
Larry Myers, a former city manager,
,and Tim Poynter, a downtown busi-
nessman, for the seat now held by
Commissioner Ron Sapp. Sapp is not
seeking reelection.
If, none of the three achieves a
majority in the first election, that is, 50
percent plus one vote, then a runoff
will be required.

City talks noise but no remedy for quieter downtown


ANGELA DAUGHTRY,
News-Leader
A work session on the city's noise
ordinance did not result in any imme-
diate changes in the city code, but it
brought out diverse viewpoints about
what should be encouraged' in the
downtown Fernandina Beach Historic
District.
The March 12 meeting at City Hall
included city commissioners, staff and
a handful of concerned residents.
Commissioners in general agreed the


problem was not with the time param-,
eters of the ordinance, but enforce-
ment.
Commissioner Eric Childers sug-
gested the noise-tolerance perhaps'
might be extended to midnight on'
Friday and Saturdays.
At present, the city noise ordinance
states that "the tolerance level for noise
is significantly reduced" Sunday
through Thursday between the hours
of 10 p.m. and 7 a.m., and Friday and
Saturday between the hours of 11 p.m.
and 7 a.m.


Commissioner Susan Steger said
she was satisfied with the ordinance
the way it is written. "We have to be
sensitive to those who are living down-
town," she added.
Commissioner Ron Sapp also said
as the only commissioner living down-
town that he was "very happy with the
ordinance."
"This is a wonderful opportunity.
for us to sit down and decide what our
vision is (for the downtown)," said
Sapp.
"I don't have an easy answer," said


Vice Mayor Ken Walker, on balancing
residential concerns with business
interests in the downtown. "I don't
think we're going to come up with the
perfect solution ... I don't particularly
want to encourage bar activity. Right
now I don't see myself supporting
changing the hours (of the noise ordi-
nance.) It might push the balance the
other way, which I don't want to
encourage."
"I told my young sons that a lot of
bad things happen after 11 o'clock (at
night);" said Steger. She added that


she would not like to see the down-
town change from a restaurant to a
bar district, as it would keep empty-
nesters from going downtown.
Downtown resident Chuck Hall
said he was happy the noise ordinance
issue was being addressed. He said
that his home, which is located near
the Smurfit-Stone Corp. factory, was in
the noisiest section of the city, but
there's also "a price to be paid for liv-
ing in the historic district."

ANGELA DAUGHTRY .
News-Leader
Some Old Town residents are mak-
ing a lot of noise about the crowing of
their neighbors.
Fernandina Beach police, animal
control and other city, staff have
responded over the past several weeks
to ongoing complaints about noise
coming from roosters being kept at a
residence in Old Town.
According to Community
Development Director Marshall
McCrary, the complaints have come
mostly by e-mail from residents living
close to the source of the noise.
After code enforcement officers
contacted the owner of the animals,


two of the three roosters were
removed, according to McCrary.
However, there were still complaints of
noise coming from a rooster .that was
left, and local police asked Fernandina
Beach Animal Control to go to the res-
idefnce.
Robert Morris, Fernandina Beach
Animal Control officer, said he received
a complaint from the police depart-
ment that there was "audible nuisance"
from one rooster. An "outraged citi-
zen" made the complaint March 11.
According to Morris, contact has not
been made with the owner since the lat-
est complaint, and the department has
not picked up the rooster. The matter,
as of March' 12, was "still open and
under investigation."


)toyou
McCrary said the property owner
has been made aware of the problem,
but was currently out of town.
"In short order, the chicken will be
removed," said McCrary.
Keeping livestock within city limits
requires a special permit, McCrary
said, and historically, permits have only
been issued short-term for petting
zoos. In order to allow for permanent
livestock, he said, the city ordinance
would have to be rewritten.
According to McCrary, the county,
being mostly rural, has more lax laws
for keeping livestock.
"The (city code) states that it is
unlawful to maintain livestock within

NOISE Continued from 1A
"When you call the police
(with noise complaints), you
sometimes don't get all the
enforcement you'd like to get,"
said HalL "Make sure whatev-
er you do (with the noise ordi-
nance) gives the police a lot of
power to enforce the issue."
"It's confusing to me that
the street musicians must be
permitted (to play music), but
bars are allowed to do what
they want," said Joe Warwick,
who owns the Florida House
Inn with his wife, biane. '"The
noise (coming from the Green
Turtle tavern) next door has
almost systematically destroy-
ed the Florida House Inn."
"The noise ordinance has
not been properly and consis-
tently enforced," he went on. "It
gives violators a sense of enti-
tlement ... everyone loses
because of lost revenue.... The
current noise ordinance is func-
tional and constitutional."
Warwick added that there
should be no outdoor music
downtown, "amplified or not,"
and nq open doors to allow the
music to spill onto the street,
nor should there be any music
on porches or in courtyards
"to disturb hotels, property
owners or guests."
JerryDecker, owner of the
Hoyt House bed and breakfast
inn, said that over the last few
months more guests have been
complaining about noise at the
Palace Saloon, Green Turtle
Tavern and Pompeo's restau-
rant.
"We have guests bringing
(the noise problem) up to us on
a very regular basis," said
Decker. "Visitors to this town
are walking away with the
wrong impression." Decker
added there were many exam-
ples of noise ordinances that
could be used by Fernandina
Beach that address amplified
music, which could be allowed
only by special permit.

McCrary. noted that some
cities in the U.S., such as
Seattle, have begun to relax
their livestock ordinances to
allow chickens to be kept with-
in city limits. Some other cities
that are embracing the "urban
chicken movement", are
Portland; Maine, Albuquerque,
N.M., Fort Collins, Colo, and
Vancouver, B.C. It's all part of
the "buy local" trend, which
seeks to limit energy usage
associated with transporting
food long distances. The move-
ment is also an alternative to
large, inhumane chicken
farms.

Sapp noted that for many
years, elected .officials have
tried to draw a "certain kind" of
person, whether tourist or
homeowner, to Fernandina
Beach. "I'm hearing nobody
wants to come downtown
Friday nights ... that's disturb-
ing to me."
"Are we going to be a
Bedford Falls or a Pottersville?"
asked Sapp, referring to the
movie "It's a Wonderful Life."
"We're trending toward Potter-
sville. That's not the kind of
town I'd like to retire and spend
the rest of my life in."
City Police Chief Jim Hurley
said the noise ordinance prob-
lem had become a "process/
legal issue rather than a law
enforcement issue," and added
that "without certainty of pun-
ishment, it's impossible to
enforce it." Hurley also noted
that there was nothing wrong
with most of the language of
the current ordinance and that
"police officers know when
noise is boisterous and loud."
Hurley also said one of the
problems with the noise ordi-
nance was that the owner of
the property where the noise is
happening is the one who is
cited, "but that hasn't been
working."
City Attorney Tammi Bdch
said the property owner is the'
"only one-who'feels the effect
of the lien" that is levied as pun-
ishment for excess noise,
although they may not be
responsible for creating the
noise. The property owner, she
said, should make sure there
are no noise violations.
Bach said another problem
with the noise ordinance is that
it only applies to the inside of
the business, and that it might

"We have to come up with
something that works for all of
us," said Gil Langley, president
of the Amelia Island
Convention & Visitors Bureau..
"I urge you to consider there
are time periods when you
.want to have a different stan-
dard." Langley added that the
city would need flexibility for
seasonal / events such as
Memorial Day weekend, and
would also have to consider
the development of the down-
town waterfront with its pro-
posed amphitheater.
Bach said her next step
would be tb get model ordi-
nances from other communi-
ties and set up a meeting with
State Attorney Angela Corey
for specific suggestions on the
city's noise ordinance.
Wesley White, director of
the Nassau County.State Attor-
ney's Office, has said he felt
that the city's noise ordinance
is unconstitutional, and also
said his office would not pros-
ecute anyone cited for violat-
ing it. Since that time, any noise
complaint citations have been
referred to the city's code
enforcement board. White said
he is working with the city and
Bach to resolve the issue.

committee recommended 48
amendments in 2007, and two
were approved last April.
The questions this time are:
Should city commission-
ers serve four-year terms
instead of the .current three-
year terms? This would enable
city elections to be proved to
November and combined with
state and federal elections.
Should commissioners
serve without term limits? They
are now limited to two consec-
utive terms.
Should the commission
set the dates for city elections by
ordinance? This would allow the
commission to move the elec-
tion to November, as the char-
ter commission recommended,
which would save money and
increase voter turnout.
(Turnout was 885 voters, or 12
percent, last year.) A majority of


has 70 students in grades 9-12,
could be closed, Ruis said. The
academy, 'with classes in
Fernandina Beach, Yulee and
Callahan, serves students in an
alternative setting.
Ruis said "25 to 90" teach-
'ers could lose their jobs in coun-
ty schools. "'That's our very best
guesstimate," he said.
Among the variables in
determining how many is what
the Florida Legislature does
regarding class size require-
ments. State voters approved
class size limits in a constitu-
tional amendment, but the leg-
islature is contemplating sus-
pending those for a year to
enable larger classes which
would mean fewer teachers dre
needed.
The administration is plan-
ning its staffing levels for the-
budget year that begins July 1,
but Ruis said the school board
would not make. a final deter-
mination until May 28. However,


commissioners has expressed
opposition to moving the elec-
tion, though.
Should the charter be
amended to provide that com-
missioners may directly com-
municate with city employees
with the express permission of
respective charter officers?
Now, commissioners are pro-
hibited from directly contact-
ing city employees without the
explicit approval of the city man-
ager, including employees of
the other charter officers. This
would clarify that commission-
ers must get permission from
the city attorney or city clerk
to speak to employees in their
offices.
The city commission direct-
ly hires the three charter offi-
cers city manager, city attor-
ney, city clerk and they hire
their own employees.


he anticipated job reductions at
all levels administrators, coun-
selors, cafeteria workers, school
bus drivers, custodians.
Ruis would not rule out cuts
inr extracurricular activities.
"Our main priority is to try to
preserve our instructional pro-
grams for kids," he said.
Though no cuts in extracur-
ricular activities are now
planned, "It could happen," Ruis
said.
"Everything is on the table,"
he said. For emphasis, he
added, "Everything's on there
right now."
The pending budget cuts are
on top of $5.5 million in reduc-
tions in the county schools'
budget this fiscal year. Ruis said
he appreciates the impact budg-
et cuts have on employees, par-
ents and students.
"The effect it has on people
and their families it gives me
a sharp feeling in my heart," he
said.

ic forecaster Fishkind &
Associates tells a-similar tale
in the Vision 2032 report.
The revered economist
contends the county's budg-
et is "unsustainable" as it cur-.
rently stands. As property
values fall and fewer new
commercial or residential
projects fill the pipeline, the
county will face an irreconcil-
able shortfall.
One option is to reduce
spending. The other is to
find alternatives to property
taxes, whether through fees,
sales taxes, etc. Shrinking
the budget which has
grown exponentially faster
than the population in recent
years would be an oppor-
tune and fortuitous outcome.
Either way, after this brief
respite, county officials must
sharpen their pencils to revi-
talize the budget and pre-
vent slipping into a precipice

ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Fernandina Beach
Commissioners have voted
unanimously to purchase new
payroll and human resources
software at a cost of $130,000
that could save the city more
than that in its first year of use.
The commissioners approv-
ed the purchase March 3 after
representatives from Kronos,
the software company, gave a
brief presentation on the sys-
tem.
According to Finance
Director Patti Clifford, the
money to purchase the system
will be acquired by moving
funds from various depart-
ments' budgets: $50,000 from
the finance department,
$50,000 from human resources
and $30,000 from a non-specif-
ic fund for all departments.
The project was not put out
to bid because, according to
City .Manager Michael
Czymbor, the Kronos software
package is oni-a federal General

tract,-which local government

[ VIEWPOINT/JOE GERRITY/FERNANDINA BEACH


Whats the vision for downtown?


The city administration's inability to
enforce the current noise ordinance
is an embarrassment to citizens of
Fernandina Beach and should serve
as a warning to the future of our downtown
Historic District. The fact that the ordinance
passed by a 5-0 vote in October 2006 is a clear
indication that the city commission reached
strong consensus in regard to noise levels in
the downtown area. Yet the city's inability or
unwillingness to control late-night noise led a
local merchant to file a lawsuit in federal court
to move the city to action.
Let me say from the outset that I don't take
either side in the dispute, but I do side with the
five commissioners (including myself) that
voted for that ordinance. The lack of enforce-
ment has led to the proliferation of loud music
throughout the downtown area.
I was shocked during a recent city commis-
sion meeting when a citizen asked the city
manager to do his job and enforce the noise
ordinance, and the city manager said it wasn't
his job. Not a single commissioner challenged
him. Hold on Mr. City Manager, and read your
City Charter. Section 29 states the duties of the
city manager, and the first duty is "to see that
the laws and ordinances are enforced."
There is a bigger issue at stake here than
the administration's inability or unwillingness
to do their job. I don't pretend to be a person of
great vision, but I sure can read the writing on
the wall. Many of the merchants anci some citi-
zens want to have increased residential devel-
opment in the downtown district. How can you
expect people to live downtown when there is
loud music playing until 2 or 3 o'clock in the
morning?


I lived in Bethlehem, Pa.,
for 17 years. Bethlehem has
a historic district, with some

the 1700s. The historic down-
fown is listed on the National
Historic Register, the same
as Fernandina Beach. There
are some low-cost residential
lofts that house students and
Gerrity employees that work down-
town, and there are also
some high-density expensive
condos/townhouses where residents live year
round.
In Bethlehem there is truly a business and
residential mix that works wonderfully for 50
weeks of the year. However, every August the
city sponsors a Musikfest Festival. While all
the venues shut down by 11 p.m., the celebra-
tion continues until the local bars close at 2
a.m. Every day during the two weeks of the fes-
tival the local paper is full of police reports of
downtown residents complaining about the
loud noise. Fortunately the complaints end
when the festival is over.
That's not the case here. If we want a true
mixed-use downtown in Fernandina Beach,
reasonable minds must come to some agree-
ment about loud noise.
On another but related topic, I have
heard several people say that the Lane Co.
(the developer that was about to build condos
downtown) was not proceeding with the proj-
ect because they were unhappy with the densi-
ty that the city gave them. Nothing can be fur-
ther from the truth. Lane has fallen victim to
. the economic downturn that we are all experi-


encing. Like any developer, if the city wants to
give them more density, they would welcome
it, but that is not the reason the development
has stopped.
It is probably just as well that there is a
delay in development. Can'you imagine some-
one paying over a million dollars for a down-
town condo and not being able to sleep
because of loud music? That wouldn't be
pretty!
Most of our downtown merchants are strug-
gling to keep their doors open. They maintain
their buildings to comply with Historic District
standards, have endured increased insurance
costs and are not protected by homestead
exemptions so their assessed property values
along with their tax bills have risen dramatical-
ly in the last 10-15 years. Now, like the rest of
us, they have to survive the economic down-
turn. We have seen several of our bed and
breakfast establishments close or become pri-
vate residences. Is this trend going to continue
for the downtown?
The city commission needs to create a
vision for the future of the downtown. We can't
always provide the financial relief that we
would like to, but we don't need to put road-
blocks in the way of business, especially down-
town. I thought the commission I served on
formed a vision and created the noise ordi-
nance to facilitate that vision. If the present
commission wants to change that, it is their
prerogative. If not, they need to hold the
administration accountable for enforcement of
local ordinances and give our taxpayers the
level of service that the citizens deserve and
demand.

Logging trucks
Re: "Logging trucks on A1A," March 11.
As a lifelong citizen of Nassau County, I am
grateful for all of the log trucks that travel A1A.
They are a part of the history of this area. since
the inception of the Rayonier and Smurfit-Stone
mills. Without them, thousands of Nassau County
residents would be without a job.,
'Here are a few items that I feel dre important,
to sl~are. In order to have a commercial driver's-
license to drive a truck exceeding 26,000 pounds,
you have to pass a test not only on the traffic
laws but also on all of the inner workings of the
safety components of the truck. Every year the
driver must pass a Department of Transportation
physical. Every truck driver is enrolled in a drug-
testing program where there is random testing.
Every year the truck must be inspected to ensure
it meets all of the DOT requirements for safety.
Every year the owner of a large truck has to
pay the federal government a heavy vehicle use
tax to drive their heavy loads across America.
Every quarter any truck that travels outside of
Florida has to file and pay taxes in accordance,
with the International Fuel Tax Agreement. IFTA
taxes the truck for .every gallon of fuel that it
consumed during that time period. Mind you,
the truck has already paid taxes on the.fuel at the
gas station, but has to pay additional taxes in
order to be in compliance with the IFTA regula-
tions. Most trucks that travel outside of Florida
that are over 26,000 pounds in weighthave to have
an apportioned tag, which means that they pay
every state they travel in money to, operate in that
state. Apportioned tags can be $1,000 .or more
depending on the weight and travel radius of the
truck.
Every laden or unladen truck is required to
stop at any/all weigh stations located on their trav-
el route. Any DOT officer can arbitrarily stop
and inspect a truck. There are a myriad of viola-
tions that the truck can be cited for, and with
violations come hefty fines. The minimum insur-
ance coverage for a large truck is $750,000. So
how many of us have to have a physical, have our
vehicle inspected, enroll in a drug-testing pro-
gram, pay $4,000-$10,000 a year for insurance
and pay extra taxes to drive-our vehicle? None -
unless you are a truck driver or the owner of a
large truck.
With all of the revenue generated by a big rig
via all of the areas noted above, you can blame the


government for not repairing .the roads.
While it is unfortunate that a limb fell off of a
log truck and damaged a vehicle, please take
into account the items noted above. There are
exceptions, but most truckers do not intentionally
improperly secure their load. In most cases, small
limbs get stuck between the logs while the logs
are being loaded. The logs will shift once the
load is secured. Some of those limbs may become
loose and can unfortunately become a road haz-
ard.
Keep in mind that large trucks have blind
spots and may not be able to. see the vehicles
behind them. Always make sure you can see
their mirrors. If you can't, then they can likely not
see you. Give the truck driver the benefit of the
doubt and remember that they are only trying to
make an honest wage as quickly and safely as pos-
sible.

Parked trucks on A1A
The ,thlir -.'yI .as leaving the Shoppes of
Amnelia C.oncoiju e on AlA. Whilk tryingtoo enter
A1A from one of the feeder exits I encountered
a semi truck parked in front of McDonalds on the
right of way for A1A There were also two trucks
in front ofWhataburger.
My point is that these trucks block the view
of drivers trying to enter A1A and make a very
dangerous situation. Maybe a few dozen "No

Wasting taxpayer money
The Nassau County School Board's loss of
its gay-straight lawsuit should raise serious ques-
tions as to the board's potential guilt of malfea-
sance or misfeasance in spending taxpayer dol-
lars ("Judge favors Gay-Straight Alliance at YHS,"
March 13).
The case is an unconscionable illustration of
irrational hubris or inadequate legal advice.
According to the News-Leader, the Circuit Court
decided the case quoting from current Florida
state case law!
Did the school board's attorney not find this
case? Or did the board disregard its attorney's


Available from Commercial News Providers"


advice after he informed them of the difficulties
involved in overturning existing case law? Are
they running adult education classes for the
board's attorney or for themselves to learn to
listen?
We're told we must cut $8 million from the
school budget. It's time the school board, qtit
wasting taxpayer dollars in frivolous lawsuits
such as the Gay-Straight Alliance case.

Shoot
In his March 13 "Cup of Joe" column about
singing cowboys, Joe Palmer omitted from his life
of bona fide greats the King of the Cowboys,


the late Gene Autry. He was for a long time the
top Western singer with, inter alia, "Empty
Saddles in the Old Corral" and "Back in the
Saddle Again," the latter becoming his theme
song. But Gene lives on, brought back every
Christmas with his original recording of "Rudolf
the Red-nosed Reindeer," rendered with gen-
uine country twang.
Turning from the musical to' the rhetorical
aspects of Joe's column, it was a little startling to
read, "Shoot, I grew up in South Georgia..."
Using the same euphemism as in this quote,
perhaps Joe should have shared with the read-
ership one of the sobriquets for cowboy singers,
to wit: "shoot kickers."

like payment in full within 30 days. If you have
trouble with that, FPU is gracious enough to
allow you to divide this deposit into three
equal installments, payable over the next three-
months.
So if you've got a $200 electric bill and
things have been getting a little tight or you're
on a fixed income, and you're late on your
electric bill three times in 13 months, and by
late I mean pay on or before the due date, no.
grace period. Even my mortgage and insur-
ance companies have a grace period. Anyway,
you get this letter and here you are struggling
to make the $200 elect4c bill (up from $85 in
2006) and suddenly you owe a $400 deposit.


Obviously you're strug-
gling or you wouldn't have
been late in the first place.
You call FPU and.try to
work out a payment plan, try
to string it out as long as you
"; '. can, only to discover that
three months is it unless
you're ready to prove a hard-
ship. Isn't a late electric bill
Childers proof enough? Back to the
$400 deposit. That's an addi-
tional $133.33 for the next
three months. Suddenly the $200 electric bill
you've been struggling with will be $333.33 for
the next three months! Where's that going to
come from?
Once again some bigger than life entity that
doesn't give a damn about the little guy is try-
ing to take you to the cleaners, right? Wrong!
What you find is a company trying to' cover its
financial butt, just as much as we are, and they
have certain guidelines, set by the state, some
dealing specifically with deposits and ratios to
uncollected debt, that require oversight by the
Public Service Commission, which by the way
is going to grant FPU another $9.31 increase
to your.electric bill despite a resolution passed
unanimously by the Fernandina Beach City
Commission.
So here's the question: In these very diffi-
cult times, how do we create reasonable safe-
guards to keep FPU (a publicly traded compa-
ny) out of hot water with the Public Service
Commission, and at the same time avoid
unreasonable hardships on our citizens?


er against I

This is what I presented to Mr. Cutshaw as
a preventative plan of action for Fernandina
Beach:
1. Reevaluate deposit structure to include
conditions determined by customer's length of
service less than five years, over 5 and 10
years respectively.
a) Less than five years, two months deposit
only if absolutely necessary, payable over a 6-
12 month period.
b) Over 5-year customers, one month
deposit paid over time, up to six months.
c) Over 10-year customers, no deposit
required.
2. Temporarily suspend reconnect fees for
both over 5- and over 10-year customers. (I
believe disconnects will rise dramatically
under the current deposit policy.)
a) Allow reconnect fees for less than 5-year
customers to be billed over time.
3. Maintain these extraordinary policies, in.
these extraordinary times, through spring
2010.
Extraordinary times call for extraordinary
action.
Mr. Cutshaw doesn't have the authority to
negotiate a deal like this without corporate
approval and their policy needs to be congru-
ent throughout the state.
This is where the democratic rubber meets
the road. We must stand up together and send
a message to FPU and the Public Service
Commission that this is a plan we can live .
with.
If you agree with my proposal, please for-
ward it to your friends and neighbors and then

Little Duck, lord and master of the pond


t's surely a good thing
that we have our winter-
time pied-billed grebe in
the pond once again. One
or sometimes two pied-billed
grebes spend'their winters
with us, drifting and diving
quietly around our retention
pond. We call this year's pied-'
billed grebe "Little Duck" as
we have all the others. These
grebes are
not really
ducks at all
they have
lobed feet,
not duck-
like webbed
feet, but are
good swim-
mers and
WILD divers
WAYS nonetheless.
We have no
idea if they
Pat are the same
Foster-Turley grebe or
not, but they
share one personality charac-
teristic that we've noticed.
Bravery.
Little Duck is territorial
about the retention pond and
has no interest in sharing the
water .with tny other birds.
Wading birds the herons
and egrets are allowed by ,
Little Duck to fish in his
waters from the shoreline. No
problem. And kingfishers are
allowed to dive from high
perches and catch fish in
Little Duck's pond. No con-
test there.
But let another swimming
bird show up and Little Duck
shows his mettle. We first
noticed this phenomena one
year when a group of beauti-
ful hooded mergansers
showed up at the pond while
Little Duck was in residence.'
I was overjoyed when I .
noticed the pmergansers flying
into the pond. Little Duck is a
small drab'brown bird, no
comparison in flashiness to
the male mergansers with
their white head patches and
the females with their red
crests. I thought it would be
fun to have a flock of mer-
gansers wintering with us too.
But Little Duck had a dif-
ferent idea. No sooner did the
mergansers swim out into the
-open water of the pond, than
Little Duck swam close to
them and -quickly dove under-
water. A commotion ensued
with the mergansers flapping.
theirwings and lifting their
feet and,in less then a minute,
they flew away never to
return. Little Duck, it seems,
had bitten their feet underwa-
ter-to chase them away!
This year on the pond I'm
benefiting from Little Duck's
vigilance. A pair of Canada
geese has arrived in our
S neighborhood and keep try-..
ing to settle in. On a nearby
pond over in the Eislesworth
development, a pair of geese -
maybe, these same two have
also been making an appear-
ance. '
In this development and in
ours, Canada geese are not
welcome. Those of tus with.
experience in the Northeast
have seen what damage geese
can do when they settle in..
These sometimes 20-pound ,

Little Duck, above, chase away geese by biting their feet

birds produce scads of scats
and in no time at all can foul a
perfectly good playground or
golf course into a wet obstacle
.course.
In Florida there are two
populations of geese, the win-
tering migrants and the year-
round residents that the Fish
and Wildlife Service long ago
introduced in a handful of
Florida counties. But now the
geese have multiplied, largely
due to the landscape changes
man has produced, that-make
the habitat more suited for
them. Wild Canada geese are
protected under the Federal
Migratory Bird Treaty Act
and it is illegal to harass
them, touch them, remove
their eggs or disturb them in
any way.
But, luckily, Bucko and I
have Little Duck around to
chase them away for us. A few
days ago we heard geese
honking and sure enough,.a
pair had settled on the far end


of the pond on the bank. Little
Duck sprang into action and
swam over to watch them
. closely. The geese, at that
time, did not know what to
expect. They nonchalantly
. slid into the water for a
leisurely float and were met
with a surprise. In a flash
Little Duck was underwater
and the geese, like the mer-
gansers before them, started
making noise and lifting their
feet franticly, until they gave
up and flew off. Little Duck
bobbed to the surface in their
wake, triumphant again. -
The geese now have
learned about Little Duck, but
they still return to the pond to
rest on the bank. Now,
though, when they decide to
move on they clumsily try to
fly right from the shore, mak-
ing lift off across the water
before Little Duck can bite
them. For a single grebe
weighing less than a pound,

Judge upholds husband's


sentence in set-up case


SHANNON MALCOM
News-Leader


A woman who was alleged-
ly set up by her estranged hus-
band to be arrested for having,
drugs and guns in her vehicle
said last week she believes he
has been violating the terms
of his pre-trial intervention pro-
gram.
But Assistant State Attor-
ney Robert Lippelman, who is
prosecuting the case, agreed
with her husband's attorney,
John Cascone both said he
has satisfactorily complied with
the requirements of the pro-
gram.
Leona Burkett took the
stand March 12 in front of
Circuit Court Judge Robert M.
Foster and said she believes
her soon to be ex-husband,
John Ferrell Burkett, is still in
possession of firearms and that
he has not personally com-
pleted the conpmunity service
hours his program required,
but instead had his employees
do the work.
Burkett, who owns an auto-
mobile paint and body shop,
refurbished county-vehicles -
including some for Nassau
County Fire Rescue to fulfill
the requirements of his com-
munity service hours.'
Foster told Leona Burkett
he sympathized with her
plight, but he said her con-
cerns must be addressed in
'the civil proceedings of her
divorce from her husband, not


in the criminal
case.
Foster
reminded
Leona Burkett
that,he'd had
reservations
about allowing
Burkett her husband
to be accepted
into a pre-trial
intervention program that, if
successfully completed, would
result in the charge against
him being dropped.
"But I did it at your request
... and with your approval,"
Foster said. "I don't want to
minimize your concerns ... but
I don't-think you want to beat
a dead horse here in criminal
court"
Burkett was arrested in
September after he allegedly
paid someone to frame his wife
for .possession of illegal guns
and drugs in August. Burkett
and three others Fred Ring,
Carla Loper and Mark Regan -
were arrested as well for
allegedly conspiring to frame
Leona Burkett.'
Prosecution against John
Ferrell Burkett was deferred
and he was permitted to enter
the pre-trial intervention pro-
gram; Ring, Regan and Loper
were each sentenced to pro-
bation.
During the hearing last
week,; Leona Burkett claimed
her estranged husband had
employees work on Nassau
County Fire Rescue vehicles


for his community service, and
said she'd seen Nassau County
Fire Chief Chuck Cooper hav-
ing lunch with her husband.
Cascone immediately asked
Foster to have Leona Burkett
arrested for contempt of court
for accusingn) the fire chief
of this county of perjury."
Lippelman told Foster he
had signed affidavits from peo-
ple who said Burkett did the
work on the trucks himself.
In a phone interview later,
Cooper said Burkett saved his
department approximately
$14,000 by working on the
vehicles.
"It's not often that we can
get a community service work-
er with this level of skill and
education," Cooper said. He
denied being friends with
Burkett or having lunch with
him, although he said he is'
acquainted with him.
Foster did not have Leona
Burkett arrested for contempt,
but he said further issues
between Burkett and her hus-
band would be dealt with in
the ,divorce case between
them, over which Foster is also
presiding.
, "I don't think this is part of
the criminal case... (it's part of)
the divorce case, and we'll
address it there," Foster said.
"... I truly am sorry you're
unhappy ... clearly, we failed
here ... (and) hopefully you'll
come out of the. divorce' case
feeling like justice was done
more than it was done here."

Billy D is Floida basketball!
,-: ~~~a e ,'. '!.^ '*.* '1i'- a ,! 1


Did you hear that? It's kind of a low
hum that is sure to get louder as
the NCAA tournament presses on
void of the University of Florida
basketball team. Yes, it's the grumbling from
Gator Nation over a second straight appear-
ance in the National Invitational Tournament.'
or NIT.
Because Florida fans don't have no
stinkin' time for such petty encoputets. After
all, their team is fresh off back-to-back nation-
al championships in 2006 and 2007. They.,
don't go to the "Little Dance." Quick,.some
one buy the rights to firebillydonovan.com.
Oh how quickly we forget the day when
, Billy the Kid picked up his ball and appeared
headed for the NBA's Orlando Magic two
years ago. Local sports talk shows were filled'
with callers ruing the decision and wonder-
ing how Florida would ever be able to replace
the man who took the Gators to college bas-
ketball prominence. After all, fans realize
deep down Florida is a football school and ,
not really worthy of a big-time basketball
coach, so many expected Gator basketball to
sink back into Don DeVoe-esque oblivion--
7-21 and done.
Then Donovan backtracked and I believe I
actually heard the collective "Hallelujah"
when the official word came down that he
would remain a Gator.
Arid now, here we are, with many fans act-
ing like Florida basketball is Kansas basket-
ball and pointing fingers at Donovan.
Because how dare the Gators miss the NCAA
tournament for, gasp, the second straight sea-
son? Donovan has obviously taken his foot off
the pedal of recruiting. Donovan should have
had Dan Werner positioned further in the
backcourt in Florida's last-second loss toI
South Carolina. Donovan should have never
changed the format of 102.9 The Point!
Donovan is responsible for the poor econo-
my.
Seriously though, the grumbling Gator
fans need to wake up and smell the early
1980s. Or 1970s. Or any decade before
Donovan came along and took the Gators to
nine straight NCAA tournaments. Because,
in all honesty, Florida fans should probably
have a picture of Donovan framed by their
bed. They should consider naming their next
born "William Donovan Fill in the Blank."


All the mourning and
grieving for Donovan when
he nearly left two years ago
was spot on. Billy Donovan
is Florida basketball and
Florida basketball would
never be the same without
him.
What makes the griping
even more annoying is
Donovan has probably done
-PORfTS, some of the best coaching of
his career in the last two
TALK ', years: After all, the Gators,
haven't exactly had a bunch
JOHN L. of Noahs, Horfords and ,
CRAI, FORD ;Brewers running around out
... there,'yet Donovan has still
somehow had them in the
NCAA conversation late into both seasons.
The bottom line is Florida players just
aren't very talented. Blame it on a lack of
aggressive recruiting if you will, but to'
expect Donovan to replace his top six players
(four of them juniors who would have been a
mentoring influence on last year's team) from
the 2007 squad and not miss a step is a little
over the top.
Florida football fans are some of the most
loyal in the nation. If Ron Zook still roamed
the sidelines of The Swamp (sorry for the
mental image), there would be 90,000 strong,
arm-in-arm singing "We Are the Boys" at the
end of any given third quarter, whether win-
ning or choking away another victory.
And don't think for a minute that Donovan
doesn't recognize the loyalty to Florida foot-
ball. The guy didn't just fall off the turnip
truck yesterday. Truth is, he has shown simi-
lar loyalty to a basketball program that wasn't
much of anything before he got there in 1996
and he could have since gone to places where
his popularity would reign over that of the
football coach.
Florida basketball could be "back" as soon
as next season. And, thankfully for many.fans
who don't know what they have, Billy
Donovan will be back to continue what he
must sometimes feel is a thankless job.

Favors signs with Trojans


BETH JONES
News-Leader ,

'Aaron Favors is the first
Yulee High School football play-
er to receive a full athletic schol-
arship. The 6-foot; 265-pound.
defensive lineman signed his
national letter of intent March
11 to play at Mississippi Delta
Community College in Moor-
head, Miss.
"It is an extremely cornpet-
itive conference in football at
the junior college level," said
Bobby Ramsay, head football
coach at Yulee High School. "'A
lot of guys that playiin the NFL
went this route to get theree.
"This school only takes five .
out-of-state players. There are
10 schools in the conference
that all do that. So, Aaronis one ,
of 50 kids in the countrygetting.
this scholarship. That's a very
rare thing."
Favors, an all-county player
for three seasons, had 66 tack-
les, seven for a loss,:ttwo quar-
terbaqk sacks and a forced fum-
ble his senior year with the
Yulee Hornets.
-"He's a kid that runs-well
for his size," Rarnay 'said "HIe"
has low-cediter gravity. He 'hias
real good strength and a lot of
it's natural.
"He's a.disruptive kid they.
can play somewhere over cen-.
ter and really makes things hap-


pen. He might be considered
a little undersize at that level,
but he makes up for it with his
quickness.
. 'They really wanted him.
There aren't many kids, defen-
sive tackle wise. The fact that
he played that position and
played well, that's why he was
so valuable to them.
"He's created a great oppor-
tunity for.himself. I am hopeful
in two or three years you turn
on a football ganie on Saturday
afternoon and hear his name
called."
Ramnsay admitted Yulee is a
small school with a young pro-
gram,
"We're not really a football
factor yet," he said:
So, Ramsay sought out the
help of Rickey Starks, a local
.football coach who has already
helped secure scholarships for
other Nassau County athletes.
"That's where Rickey was
so valuable to us," Ramsay said.
"He already knows these peo-
ple and has a relationship with.
him."
"As long as I'm here I'm
going toq, e working with
them," Starks said "I had' an
oppoftuinity to playcollg@foot-''
ball. I didn't have that back-
push. This is a dream I have to
work with kids.
."Aaron is a D-I caliber foot-
ball player. I couldn't see him


sitting on the side and not get-,
ting an education and the foot-
ball experience. I know he'll do
well there."
, Starks said other schools
were interested in Favors. :
"It's going to be a good fit,"
Starks said. "They run a 4-3
defense. They want Aaron for
an inside tackle on the strong'
side of the ball. He's going to be
excited."
Favors played four years for
the Hornets. His career culmi-
nated with the annual Shrine
Bowl game in Jacksonville in
January, which showcases sen-
iors who have not committed to
school.
. "I played a lot," Favors said..
"The coaches really wanted to
.win. I wasn't supposed to start,.
,but after three plays, I stayed in
for the whole game." -
Favors was one ofsix play-
ers from Nassau County select-.
ed to represent the North team,
which won.:
"I played the whole game. I
got 3-4 sacks and a fumble
recovery," Favors said.
He visited'Mississippi Delta
and said he was,inpressed with
lhat he saw. '

Favors, who will now be a
Trojan, said he plans to study
business management at Missi-

recruiting needs. Since that time, college

Mickelson closed with seven straight pars for a 3-under-par 69 and
f pa one-shot victory over Watney. Watney, who needed'a birdie on the
) 18th hole to tie Mickelson, thought his 30-foot birdie putt was good
until it stopped one turn away. It was Mickelson's second win in three starts and
moved him to No. 2 in the world ranking. Depending on how Tiger Woods fares
at Bay Hill, Mickelson might have a chance to go to No. 1 when he plays again..


One of those shots that we do not
get the opportunity to practice very
S much, but comes in handy at times
is the lob shot. In essence, the lob
J shot is a complete feel shot, so
there are a few tricks to follow. The
first step is to make sure that your
grip pressure is soft and your hands stay quiet.
You want to keep your grip pressure constant
throughout the entire stroke. Your best course of
action is toymake a long, lazy swing with as much
wristcock as you can get on your backswing. You
need to make your stance much wider than what
you are used to and open the clubface up dra-
matically to get the ball in the air immediately.
The final point is to play the ball off of your left
instep with almost all of your weight being pleaded
on your right foot.

friends of the Library book sale a semi-annual treat


I was a merchandiser.
That is what you call the vol-
unteers that help with the
Friends of the Library semi-
annual book sales. The sales
raise reirenue for library pro-
grams and services. The
twice-a-year event is held in
the Peck Center gym.
SArriving to take my shift, I
felt like a kid in a candy store.
The tables were lined up,
piled with books of all sizes,,
shapes and color combina-
-tions waiting for someone to
rescue them from oblivion.
People are drawn to books.
Working through the after-
noon, I watched people from


all walks of
life slowly
.... move up and
down the

heads
"turned'
down, look-
ing at titles
and turning
FROM them over in
THE their hands.
PORCH If the book
was lucky,
the cover
Dickie was flipped
Anderson open and the
would-be
buyer would continue, to


investigate. Real lovers of
books would scan the pages
and react to the weight and
feel of the book.
Books were divided in cat-
egories children's, young
adult, mystery, romance, busi-
ness, hobbies, animals and
the most popular trade
paperback and hardcover fic-
tion. Oh, if the trade paper-
backs could talk. Tattered and
torn, these word-filled war-
riors have traveled around the
world, maybe spent the day at
the beach or traveled to a doc-
tor's office in anticipation of a
long wait. These books were
made to travel and bear the.


scars of their journeys.
Drawn to the hardcover fic-
tion, I joined other volunteers
putting these books in alpha
order. We found lots of old
friends. Not people, but
books.
"Did you read this one?" as
a treasure was held up.
Other volunteers would
smile and remember their
own favor-ites as we worked
through the alphabet.
Volunteering at the Friends
of the Library book sales can
be expensive volunteer work.
Hard to volunteer at a book
sale and not end up with a pile
to take home. A Nelson


DeMille for my husband,
some children's books for my
grands and a few bestsellers
that could not be resisted.
The Big Guy and I have
gone our separate ways. No,
not something serious, but he
is hooked on reading books
on.his iPhone. Not me. We
both love to read and try hard
to put in more book-time than
television-time.
Big Guy is fascinated with
the new book downloading
technology. My reading is
from a book held in my hands
that requires its pages be
turned. Page turning meas-
ures progress. Yes, digital


books have lots to be said for
them and offer unique oppor-
tunities for convenience and
special needs, but I maintain
there is nothing, absolutely
nothing, like the smell, feel
and weight of a "real" book.
Am I a dinosaur?

Auxilians offer more than coffee


The Board of Directors of
the Baptist Medical Center
Nassau Auxiliary recognizes
the auxilians that serve in the
Coffee Corner as the March
service area for the 2008-9 aux-
iliary year.
The auxilians who serve in
this area are not only respon-
sible for selling coffee, teas
and other snacks, but also
serve as that friendly face to
chat with while in the medical
center. Located in the
Outpatient Registration area
of the medical center,. the
Coffee Corner, along with the
Gift Shop, is an ongoing fund-,
raising effort for the auxiliary.
The.funds raised are given
back to the medical center by
the auxiliary in the form of
monetary gifts, scholarships
and/or by the provision of
equipment and supplies need-
ed by the medical.center.
The people serving in this
