'Historic moment as city moves


to buy downtown post office


ANGELA DAUGHTER
lVeu's-Lebder


Fernandina Beach Commission-
ers have taken a major step toward
acquisition of the downtown post
office building. A non-binding letter of
intent from the U.S. Postal Service
for purchase of the Centre Street post
office was approved 4 to 1 Tuesday..
The letter states that the city will
purchase the property at no cost and
lease a portion of the building back to
the U.S. Postal Service for 100 years
at the rate of $1. An agreement
between the city and the Postal
Service is to be reached in three
months.
But Commis-sioner Ron Sapp
made it clear that he was not happy
with the potential
Saving deal, .no matter
a what the terms,
Fe"radna because he
6A believed it would
constitute the first
phase of a controversial "musical
chairs project." He also complained
that the city was not prepared for the
amount of money it would take to ren-
ovate the building, as well as pay for
maintenance now being covered by
the U.S. Postal Service.
"This is the third time this idea
has come before the commission in
the last 15 years," said Sapp, "but this
time it has legs ... because it's not just
buying the post office, it's the begin-
ning of musical chairs.",
The civic relocation, or musical

supposed to be looking out for.'

chairs project, involves the post office.
the Fernandina Beach branch library,
the former First Baptist Church and
City Hall. A June 2007 study by
Surber, Barber. Choate & Hertlein
concluded that the post office would
be appropriate for use as a city hall.
The First Baptist Church building has
been considered for both a library
and a performing arts center.
Citing, the study and potential
costs, Sapp said that buying the post
office "doesn't make sense" unless
the city buys the church, builds a new
library and adds a new garage down-
town.
"The main fly in the ointment is
parking," said Sapp. "Thafs why the
post office moved out. to Sadler
(Road)."
"I guarantee you this," said Sapp,
"it's a wonderful deal for the U.S.
Postal Service ... if that's who we're
supposed to be looking out for."
The letter of intent calls for the
city to lease back 4,000 square feet
to the Postal Service, including dock-
ing space, for a 100-year term for a
cost of one dollar. The city is to pay for
improvements to the space as well as


the costs for a temporary post office
space during construction.
Several residents spoke at the
meeting, most of them voicing their
enthusiasm for the purchase.
''This is a historic moment," said
resident Clinch Kavanaugh. "I can't
believe anyone on this board believes
it's an unfavorable agreement.... We
have the historical responsibility, to
do this."
"I can tell you, this is a sweetheart
deal," resident Chuck Hall told the
commissioners. "If you don't feel com-
fortable with it, then get comfortable
with it. This is good. It's good."
Adam Kaufman, vice president of
the Amelia Island-Fernandina Beach
Restoration Foundation, said his board
has authorized a fundraising effort
for restoration of the post office, with*
a potential fund of $100,000.
"We believe that without a transfer
to the city," said Kaufmnan, "there will
be further significant deterioration to
the building and adverse impact on
the city's main street."

$10 million




still unpaid in



county taxes


RYAN SMITH
.;''* News-Leader
More than 10 million in taxes were
still unpaid in Nassau County as of
Monday, according to Nassau County
Tax Collector John Drew. That's over
$1.5 million more than last year, but
Drew said the bankruptcy of one of the
county's major companies skews that
number.
Taxes unpaid due to bankruptcy
total $3.6 million, or 2.6.percent of the
total tax rolls. Last year, bankruptcies
accounted for only about $85,000.
Drew attributed the spike to the bank-
ruptcy; of Smurfit-Stone Container
Corp.
"You've got $3,500,000 in the bank-


ruptcy line. The
majority of that is
Sm ur fit-Stone,"
Drew said. "If it
weren't for the 2.63
percent bankruptcy
line, we would be at
a higher collection
rate than we were
Drew last year."
SSmurfit-tone
filed for bankruptcy
under Chapter 11 in January, citing
falling profits and ,mounting debt lev-
els. "There's a few other bankruptcies
out there, but that is the largest bank-
ruptcy," Drew said.

RYAN SMITH
News-Leader


Nassau County residents and rep-
resentatives of non-profit groups got a
chance Monday to give their input on
how the county budget should be
spent. At a special meeting of the
Nassau County Commission, public
input was invited on the budgeting
process, although no decisions were
made.
,The total adopted 2008-9 budget
for the county is $167.7 million.
However, only $57.7 million of that is
actually used to run the operations of
the county, according to Office .of
Management and Budget Director Ted
Selby.
"That's what we call the operating
budget. That's what we use to run the
day-to-day operations of the county," he
said Tuesday. "The other money might
be from special revenues or impact
fees money we can't touch to run


the.day-to-day operations of the coun-
4-" .


ly. -
It was the allocation of that $57 mil-
lion that county residents were con-
cerned about at Monday's meeting.
With the looming possibility of funding
cuts to some programs, representa-
tives from several agencies made their
cases to retain funding at current lev-
els.
Commission Chair Barry Holloway
warned that the entire $57 million was
not up for grabs. "After we do the
things we're required to do by law,
that shrinks down to about $8 million,"
he said. "When it comes time for us to
do the slicing and dicing ... we're not
starting at that $57 million, we're start-
ing at about $8 million."
Selby said much of the operating
budget would go to fund the other
constitutional officers and for regular
expenses such as payroll.

Sign up now to pay tax



on an installment plan


When property taxes go
up, the Tax Collector feels the
sting, too. This year I felt
"stung" enough that I have
registered for a quarterly
installment plan.
As your Tax Collector, I am
not responsible for establish-
ing assessed values or levying
a millage rate but I am respon-
.sible for multiplying those two
factors together to obtain the
magical "amount due" figure
that appears on your annual
tax notice.
In my daily work in the Tax
Collector's Office, I have the
unique opportunity to hear
first-hand the concerns that
you, the citizens of Nassau
County, are expressing.
Because most of us are now
facing some degree of eco-
nomic discomfort, it is. becom-
ing more and more difficult to
write that annual check for
property taxes.
Since 2006,1 I have aggres-
sively promoted the install-
ment method of paying prop-
erty taxes because I feel that
every taxpayer" should be
aware of this option. So I now
want to let the citizens know
that I have taken my own
advice and have personally
signed up for the plan.


7,2 How it
works: The
installment
_4 plan breaks
your tax
payment
into four
quarterly
payments.
For me, four
TAXTAL s smaller
John Drew checks will
be easier to
Tax Collector write than
...- one big
"painful"
check. The first installment
is paid no later than June 30
and includes a 6 percent dis-
count. The second is due on
September 30 with a 4 percent
discount, followed by
December 31 with a 3 percent
discount. The.final payment is
due at, the end of March.
Barring a steep increase
in property taxes affecting
two of your four payments,
most taxpayers will actually
save modey by enrolling in
the installment plan. That is
the reason my family mem-
bers and many of my employ-
ees and friends have also
signed up for this opportu-
nity.
Florida Statue 197.222


authorizes me, your Tax
Collector, the ability to offer
this option to you. The statute '
states, "The estimated tax
must exceed $100." I have a
feeling that if you are reading
this, your taxes are most like-
ly more than $100.
The deadline for applying
for the installment method is
next week, April 30, 2009.
Please be advised that you
would be applying for an
installment plan relating to the
upcoming 2009 Tax Roll,
which will open on Nov. 1.
(Your application would not
affect taxes that were due as of
Nov. 1, 2008, which is the cur-
rent Tax Roll.)
To apply, please visit any
local Tax Collector's Office or
download the form from our
website at www.nassautax-
es.com in the "Alternative
Payment" section. If you have
any other questions, you can e-
mail our customer service
department at cs@nassautax-
es.com or call me directly at
491-7405.
As your grandparents told
you, "Death and taxes are
inevitable." In these difficult
times, the installment plan at
least lets you take manageable
bites out of one of them!

BUDGET Continued from 1A'
Bill Flynn, president of the
Friends of the Nassau County
Library, asked the commission
to consider replacing $160,000
in lost state funding. "We have
more people coming through
the door every day," he said.
"We have 17 people running
the whole system."
Dr. Laureen Pagel of Sutton
Place Behavioral Health in
Yulee did not ask for new funds,
but did request that the county
continue funding the mental-
health center at current levels.
"Florida ranks 48th (in the
country) in mental health fund-
ing," she said. "I'm asking you,
when, you look at the budget
this year, that you not cut serv-
ices for those who can't help
themselves. ... When you cut
mental health services, you see
an increase in crime, in emer-
gency room visits, in domestic
violence reports.... I ask you to,
continue funding us at the level
you have been funding us."
Robert Silverio of the'
Nassau County Council on
Aging also asked that the coun-
ty keep funds constant. "We rec-
ognize that there are some dif-
ficult realities and hard
decisions that have to be
made," he said. "(But) there
are over 300 people right now
on our waiting list who need
our services that we can't pro-
vide. These aren't statistics.
These are people."
Commissioner Mike Boyle
reassured Silverio that the
county's aged population was
a priority. "I think in the past
this board has been support-
ive, and I don't think we can in
good conscience reduce that
support,"' he said. "When the
economy does a tank job like it
has over the past couple of
years, oftentimes the elderly
are the hardest hit."
Jane Scanlan, co-chair of the
county's solid waste task force,
recommended that the county
look for innovative ways to save
on operating expenses. "I

ers can save the county money,"
she said.
Scanlan recommended tw.o
strategies to look for savings.
"The first is asking the county
employees to come up with
what I call 'big ideas' ... to save
money in their departments,"
she said. "That's one way we
can improve the operational
efficiency of the county.
"My second suggestion is
to appoint citizen advisory
groups in the big areas sup-
plier management, law enforce-
ment, fire safety, energy sav-
ings. You have citizens
throughout the county who
have worked in these areas ...
Get them to work for you for
free."
Boyle thanked the speakers
for their input, and said their
presentations highlighted the
difficulty of the budgeting
process. "You know we have a
finite number of dollars," he
said. "We've had people come
before us this evening and talk
about the need for libraries, the
need for mental health care,
the Council on Aging. ... If you
leave tonight with nothing else,
hopefully you have an under-
standing of how hard the job
is, because all of the things I've
mentioned are important."


TAXES Continued from 1A
Bankruptcies are not
regarded in the same light
as ordinary unpaid taxes,
said Tax Collector's Office
Finance Director Mike Love.
'The companies.that are in
bankruptcy are not in delin-
quency, nor are those who
are in a lawsuit over a (tax)
assessment," he paid.
Smurfit-Stone has challenged
its assessment.
A total of $10.2 million, or
about 7.5 percent of the total
tax rolls, was uncollected as
of Monday, compared to $8.7
million, or 6.6 percent last
year at that time.
Amelia Concourse
Development, LLC, which
had not paid $152,292 as of
Wednesday, owes the largest
delinquent amount.
Still, according to Drew,
most citizens and businesses
are paying on time and in full,
even in the face of the flag-
ging economy. "In the diffi-
cult economic situation that
most Americans are facing',
I'm extremely proud that we
the citizens of Nassau County
are continuing to fulfill our
civic obligations," he said.

Latest director out at



county Animal Control


SIAN PERRY
News-Leader
The sheriff removed Mimi
Vitale as the interim director of
Animal Control on Wednesday
and said he-will oversee the
operation until it is turned back
over to the county June 1.
"She's applying for the posi-
tion (of director) and in all fair-
ness to the other people who
are applying ... I thought it was
a lot more fair to keep it open
for a month," said Sheriff
Tommy Seagraves. "I wrote
her a long letter thanking her
for all that she'd done. It was
nothing bad or negative," he
said of her dismissal.
While he- won't be hiring
the new director that will now
fall to County Coordinator Ed
Sealover Seagraves said he
didn't want to taint the process
by leaving an interim director
in place. "We've got the ability
to oversee it for the next
month," he said, noting there
are 12 employees that report
directly to him.
The county commission
agreed Monday to resume
oversight of Animal Control
June 1 from. the sheriff, who
has run the facility for a year.
Seagraves appointed Vitale as
interim director in January
after firing Chris Barnes,
whom he hired from Alachua

Highest ever
Vitale for Animal
Control.
"He called
me yesterday morning and he
told me Lynda Mixson would
be taking over until the end of
May," Sealover said Thursday.
Mixson heads up Rescuing
Animals in Nassau and is the
former director of the Nassau
Humane Society. She said
RAIN would be interested in a
contract to run Animal Control.
"I have always told anyone
who wanted to listen, it is not
our main goal to run the coun-
ty facility, but we would do our
best to serve our community
and give the respect to the ani-
mals under the care of Nassau
Animal Services and the care
they so deserve," she said in an
e-mail.
"We feel the taxpayers of
Nassau deserve top-of-the-line
service in Animal Control, and
an operation they can be proud
of. We feel the sheriff has put
us on the right track, and we
need to continue on that path."
Sealoyer said none of the


local rescue organizations has
contacted him, but added, "I've
had some of the commission-
ers talk about contracting it
out."
The question in that case
is, "Do we want to contract out
the entire function or just the
shelter operation and maintain
control of the Animal Control
function," with officers report-
ing directly to him, said
Sealover. "I'll create a (request
for proposal) for their review
and see how they feel about
it," he said.
Currently, the county coor-
dinator is busy reviewing per-
sonnel, budget and back-
ground check files handed
over by the sheriff.
As for the Animal Control
building, which Seagraves said
is infested with rats and needs
renovations, Sealover said
there are plans to replace old
outside chain-link pens and to
provide new outside runs for
the dogs. Whether the coun-
ty's impact fees can be used
for improvements or a new
building, Sealover said he
would look into that, but "my
answer's going to have to say
probably not I don't think it
qualifies as an administration

that's not going to happen."'

A FRIDAY. April 24.2009 NEWS News-Leader



Fernandina restores, refurbishes, reuses


I made it a point to drop in
on the annual meeting of the
Amelia Island-Fernandina
Restoration Society because I
was interested in what fate it
had in mind for our historic
post office on Centre Street.
By the end of the meeting,
I had realized that our post
office was in
good hands.
The real
story is the
Restoration
Foundation
S" J itself, so I
cornered its
president
Susan
CITY Siegmund
SIDEBAR and asked
for an inter-
--.--- view. A cou-
Cara Curcin ple of days
later, she
and her vice president Adam
Kaufman Were regaling me
with the foundation's history
and accomplishments.
Like many other things in
this town, the foundation was
born in 1970, part of the


This organization gets things done!And it has
been getting them done for almost 40 years.


.epiphany inspired by the dem-
olition of the Keystone Hotel.
Susan and Adam carefully
explained that there's no
"Beach" in the foundation's
name because it was organ-
ized before the consolidation
of Fernandina and
Fernandina Beach, so I had a
little tidbit of history before I
even had my first sip of coffee
at Espresso.
Its first membership roster
reads like a Who's Who of
Fernandina business and
community leaders: Aurbrey
Williams (Palace Saloon) was
president, ably assisted by
Bob White (Fernandina
Lumberr, Robert Whitaker
(Robison's Jewelry
Company), and Buddy Jacobs
(attorney at law). Franz
Mitchell, whose card shop
evolved into Books Plus, and


Eldridge Partin of Partin's
Shoes filled out the board of,
directors. I didn't know all of
the names on the general
membership list, but I did rec-
ognize Helen Litrico (histori-
an, writer, co-founder of
Amelia Now) and George
Davis (historian and writer). I
didn't see Suzanne Davis
Hardee's name on that list,
but City Commissioner Susan
Steger's mother was a
revered and influential histori-
an, writer and community
leader. She leant her consid-
erable talents to the causes
the foundation addressed
over the decades.
Now, on a crisp winter
afternoon in Paradise, Susan
Siegmund pulled out part of
the report that Dee Chaplin
had delivered to us at that
annual meeting; it listed the
considerable number of the
foundation's accomplish-
ments, and we pored over it
amidst the coffee cups and lit-
tle pots of cream. It. didn't
strike me until later, but one
of the most impressive things.
about this list is thatso much
has been accomplished over
39 years by what has to be an
ever-changing membership
roster. As we all know from
our own experiences, people
come and go, and so do priori-
ties.
Since 1970, the foundation
successfully campaigned to
have 30 blocks of our down-
town added to the National

President Adam Kaufman confer before a meeting in the ornate meeting room upstairs
in the historic post office on Centre Street during the holidays.


Register of Historic Places. A
corollary to that is our beauti-
fully designed and landscaped
Centre Street, which took
years to plan and even more
years to execute; it is a testi-
mony to the foundation's per-
severance.
The foundation was a vital
force in saving the convent of
the Sisters of St Joseph, as.
well as providing-a money
source for its restoration.
The first renovation of our
1891 county courthouse was
largely the result of the foun-
dation's efforts. And you can
thank the foundation for our
city fountain; it was retrieved
from Fort Clinch, which is
probably an interesting story
in itself, to stand in front of
the courthouse.
In its spare time, the foun-
dation offered aid and sup-
port to the Eight Flags
Museum, which would evolve
into our beloved Amelia
Island Museum of History.


Somewhere in there, the'
foundation found the time to
successfully lobby to add Old
Town to the Register of
Historic Places, as well as to
enlarge the downtown
Historic District from 30
blocks to 50, extending it to
North Third Street. Speaking
of North Third, did you know
that Caf6 Karibo started out
in life as a Ford Automobile
repair shop? Or that Sid and
Suzy Sax's Designs On-Sax
once served as Fernandina's
YMCA? That was long before
the birth of the McArthur
YMCA on Citrona Drive.
More recently, the founda-
tion members have added
their considerable voice and
influence to the Peck High
School restoration project, as
well as the Phelan-Verot
House on North Fourth
Street.
By now you should have
some idea why I was so
impressed at the annual meet-


ing; this organization gets
things done! And it has been
getting them done for almost
40 years. I left the meeting
knowing that the fate of the
post office is in good hands;
the foundation will not rest
until this historic building has
a future that is just as rich as
its past.
If you would like to join
this group of bright, energetic
people who work hard to pre-
serve our heritage, contact
Susan at
SusanSiegmund@msn.com.
The dues are reasonable: $15
for an individual membership,
$25 for the whole family. I
hope you sit next to me at the
next meeting so we can chat
about preserving yet another
fine old landmark in Paradise.

Code Yellow:


Time for a


money diet'
S o, we're in a recession. Or has it been
upgraded to a depression? Someone
in the government should look into
creating a color-coded "threat-level"
indicator, much like our threat-level system
for threats to homeland security. Orange
could equal recession. Red could equal
depression:
I don't know what the latest news
is for the national economy, but my
personal economic
threat level probably is
orange or maybe yellow,
and I'm grateful for that. I
still have a job and-
bonus it's a job I actually
like. I'm not living with
my parents, my minivan is
paid for, and I even still
have cable television and
SNEWS" high-speed Internet -,
ROOM access at home. Definitely
VIEWS just yellow. And yellow is a
really cheerful color so
.... hopefully it will stay
Shannon right there and not go any
higher.
Malcom Even at threat level
yellow I have been eyeing
my expenditures carefully and trying to do
the Thoreaut "simplify" thing in my life. A
cabin in the woods is a bit far-fetched, but I
am making a concerted effort to save
money when I'go grocery shopping, to eat
at home more often, and I rarely leave the
island let alone the county in an attempt
to save money on gas and wear and tear on
my van.
As I started to get all thrifty, going on my
"money diet," as I like to call it, a friend of
mine suggested I go a week and write down
absolutely everything I buy, and how much I
spent.
I really wish she hadn't suggested that.
I guess at some point, I had to face the
truth: I do waste a lot of money!
Sodas at gas stations, margaritas with
friends, pizza for dinner when the house is
full of food, stupid magazines that make me
feel fat, letting my son order movies from
On-Demand when it's cheaper to rent, ran-
dom toys for my toddler who would much
rather play with my cell phone the list just,
goes on and on. -.
Seriously, with what I spend in soda
alone in a given week I could probably
vaccinate 40 infants in some Third-World
country. I started to feel pretty guilty. I
mean, realizing I'm having my student
loans deferred while spending roughly what
it would cost to pay the monthly bills on
trips to the nearby gas station (and no, not
for gas), is precisely whaftmy older son
would call an "epic fail" on my part economi-
cally.
Facing the truth did motivate me, and
I've been good in the past two weeks. I
haven't given up my Coke Zero that's
crazy talk. But I have changed from random-
ly buying cans from machines and gas sta-
tions to purchasing entire 12- or 24-packs
and bringing cans with me to work more
economical. I've had peanut butter and jelly
sandwiches nearly every day for lunch for a
week now, and I admit I was shocked at how
I'd forgotten how good and wholesome they
actually taste.
Of course, even as I try to tighten my
belt with the best of intentions;,it's typical
that somebody always has a smart remark
to make. During a recent power outage, I
mentioned being worried about all the meat
I'd just bought and put in the freezer. After a
second or two, my older son looked up and
laughed.
"Wait," he said. "Why do you have meat
in the freezer? You don't cook."
"I do too," I snapped back. "Remember
that pot roast I made, you loved that?"
"Oh what, you mean last fall?" he snick-
ered.
Whatever. Kids are so disrespectful these
days!
People can change.

True love will never die


Most everyone said it wouldn't last.
He was the free-spirited hippie type
with the long hair and beard. His
idea of getting dressed up was iron-
ing his faded and threadbare jeans and select-
ing a T-shirt without something offensive on it.
A clean pair of sneakers, some flip-flops or a
pair of suede desert boots were his choice of
footwear.
She was part of the Bobby Brooks bunch.
Clothes had to match shoes. Shoes had to
match bag. Jewelry tastefully accentuated
everything. Not a hair of her stylish Dorothy
Hamill hairdo was ever out of place. Skin so
clear and flawless it defied the application of
makeup.
He was smitten with her and asked her out
orn a dare by a friend of his. She thought he
was kidding and accepted. He showed up at
her house a few nights later looking like
Grizzly Adams and showed her he wasn't.
His idea of a hot first date was a Pink Floyd
cosmic concert at the Alexander Brest
Planetarium. He was mesmerized by the lasers.
She fell asleep. His taste in music ran toward
the Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd and The Who,
all played seriously loud. She favored ABBA,
the Bee Gees and older Beatfles tunes. Her idea
of a sizzling hot date included lots of disco
dancing. He had two left feet and the rhythm of
a plow mule with a gimp leg. She was graceful
and knew all the moves. He swallowed his
pride and hid his embarrassment and went
along because it made her happy.
Socially, they couldn't have been farther
apart. He was the bad boy from the wrong side


of the railroad tracks in a one-
horse town. She was a rah-rah
girl from a well-to-do family in
the city. His daddy's collar
was blue. Her daddy's collar
,a ,r was white.
Y! 1 They'd known each-other
just three months when they
got married. It was a bohemi-
an affair on the deck of her
CUP OF mom and dad's beach house.
JOE He got a haircut and shaved
..... off the beard but kept the
mustache. She wore an outfit
Joe Palmer that stopped his heart when
he saw her in it. He picked wildflowers from
the sand dunes to go with her bouquet. He got
lost when he went to St. Augustine to buy ice
for the drinks and was late arriving. She was
standing on the front deck looking for him and
starting to cry when he finally got there. One
of their friends from work took the wedding
photos. Another coworker stayed in the back-
ground, softly strumming her guitar and play-
ing the "Hawaiian Wedding Song" when they
spoke their vows. Her bridesmaid and best
friend cried. His best man couldn't find the
beach house and drove up and down A1A look-
ing for it until the wedding was over. They
pulled another guy from the small gathering of
people to stand in as best man and years later,
they laughed because neither could recall his
full name.
Their honeymoon was spending the week-
end alone at the beach house. They couldn't
wait for all their guests to leave. They stood on


the deck together and waved goodbye to them.
The beach house is still there but someone
else owns it now. They still get a little choked
up when they drive by.
Most of their friends from back in the day
have gotten divorced and remarried some
more than once. Others have died. They have
endured.
Most everyone said it wouldn't last. They
just celebrated 31 years together. Their sons
are grown and have wives of their own. They
await the joy of grandchildren. They still go on
a date every Friday night and laugh and talk
over a pizza, just like in the old days when they
were flat broke and just barely old enough to
buy beer.
They look at their wedding album from time
to time and marvel at the young faces smiling
back at them and they wonder where three
decades got away to so quickly. Wasn't it just
yesterday when they were younger than their
own kids are today? Freeze-framed fragments
of a time gone by that now seem as alien and
far away to their sons and daughters-in-law as
the faded black and white photos of people in
their own parents' photo albums once seemed
to them.
He still plays his music loud, although now
more from necessity than for thrills. She still
likes ABBA, the Bee Gees and the older Beatles
stuff. His hair is thinning and not long anymore
but he'll always be,a hippie at heart. Rock and
roll will never die. Neither will true love.

larly for the News-Leader'

A rebuttal
I do not believe in, and try not to engage in
personnel management in the media. However
certain comments were made by Mr., (Robert;
Weintraub in his Viewpoint ("A brave public ser
vant is fired," April 15) that involve me and meri
rebuttal. First and, foremost, no one ordered me
to ask Mr. Seaman to resign.
For some time, several members of the boarc
approached me with concerns about his per
formance, particularly his approach to tasks
assigned to him; his inability to complete them
and his attitude. Inasmuch as I was his immedi
ate supervisor, they clearly had a right to talk tc
me about this. I too had concerns and did not dis
agree with some of the.issues raised. Moreover
these issues weren't something that happened
"overnight." They had been ongoing for some
time. Additionally related were comments direct
ed to Mr. Seaman by board members at their
meetings. However, he seemed to be either indif
ferent or oblivious to them. Clearly, he had losl
the confidence of the governing body and his
immediate supervisor. With no significant change
in attitude and actions, he couldn't remain in his
position. I did not anticipate that happening.
Mr. Seaman was an at-will employee. He could
be let go for any reason' that didn't violate his civi
rights. The final decision rested with-me and ]
chose to make it
Edward L. Sealovet
Nassau County Coordinator

Pirates
Nassau County Commissioner Stacy Johnson
should resign. She has blatantly used her power
and influence to circumvent the rules and guide-
lines of Planned Unit Developments in Nassau
County ("A brave public servant is fired," April
15). Her cohorts on the commission, the coun-
ty coordinator and the county attorney are all
wearing pirates' garb with patches on both eyes.
The citizens are being held hostage.
Other developers were made to build turn
lanes into their PUDs, so why-not her? It's a
simple question. Stacy and Steve Johnson simply
refused to build it period. The commission
refused to make her. The 200 homes that are to
be constructed in Deer Run could cause serious
traffic problems that may well result in the loss
of someone's life because of their refusal to fol-
low the prescribed rules. The safety of the peo-
ple she serves obviously takes a back seat to the
$200,000 it would take to construct it.
The skull and crossbones have been raised
over the ship USS Nassau County, replacing the
flag' of honor without shame. Commissioner
Johnson should explain why she should be
exempt from following the law. The rest of the
commission should explain their inaction as well.
Talk about a conflict of interest!
To be fair, I also ask Ed Sealover why he isn't
doing his job the way it should be done instead
of kowtowing to the whim of a few commission-
ers who dare anyone to oppose them.
I would think that Mr. Sealover would have
been proud to have an employee of the caliber
of Douglas Seaman. It seems that be would
rather have a jester doing his and the commis-
sion's bidding instead of a good, honest man. Mr.
Seaman should have been backed up. It was the
right thing to do..
'But, that would take bravery and scruples.
It seems that he is cut from the same cowardly
cloth that commissioners Johnson, Boyle and
Holloway are cut from. Oh, and let's not forget
to mention County Attorney David Hallman. He
should do the job he is being paid for honest
legal advice. Of course he's probably afraid of his
job, too.
I am sorely disappointed in Mike Boyle and
Barry Holloway. I supported them. But since
they have replaced their commissioners' caps
with crowns, they have lost that support, and the
support of many others. Since their rise from sim-
ple pirates to royalty they have become arro-
gant and self-serving, especially Mr. Boyle. They
dare anyone to question them on anything.
Off with their heads! Douglas Seaman sure
lost his. But that is what kings and pirates do. If
it were up to Boyle and Holloway, (Clerk of
Court) John Crawford's head would have been
on the chopping block because he dared ques-
tion their decisions on fiscal matters. He has
also been publicly denigrated because of it.
If Mr. Boyle, Holloway and Sealover were
half the public servants John Crawford has
proven to be, Stacy Johnson, without regard of
her position, would have been made to build the
turn lane, as required, and Douglas Seaman
would have been commended instead of fired for
doing his job. Which begs the question: Should
Sealover stay on the county payroll? I don't think

so nor any of the others as far as I'm con-

It's time we had a commission that appreci-
ates the people they represent instead of a com-
mission that places ego and personal interest
first. It's also high time we had a commission
that's not afraid to stand up to (former county
attorney) Mike Mullin. That would take guts
and moral fiber, two things this commission, at
least three of them; seriously lacks.

Giantofaman
Some communities are fortunate to be able to
boast about their local celebrity or town hero. We
moved here from a small Midwestern town that
boasts of being the home of the tallest man who
ever lived, RobertWadlow, at eight feet, 11 inch-
es.
After moving to this area for a job opportunity
in Fernandina, I soon realized that Fernandina
could also boast of local celebrity, Max Hoard,
who was born, raised and continues to live here.
Max trained hardifor a career in boxing and
looking back at his winning record of 26 wins (19
by KO), you will recognize that he was very suc-
cessful in the ring. Thirty years ago this month,
Max and a group of his fans left for Madison
Square Garden for a highly advertised fight.
Max was hoping to put Fernandina on the map!
His opponent was a very good boxer by the
name of Tony Danza, who was just beginning to
get into TV and acting. Unfortunately, Max lost
the fight by a knockout in the first round, but he
returned home proud of his determination to
do well and represent his community.
Although I have never watched Max box, I
have heard stories of his career in local restau-
rants and sports pubs. I have seen his picture in
several local establishments, and his boxing
robe and other memorabilia can be seen at T-
.Ray's Burger restaurant on Eighth Street. Max's
"murderous" left hook (as a Times-Union writer
described it) made his boxing career exciting and
successful, which included the Golden Gloves
Championship title of Florida.
Max made it from theRec Center to Madison
Square Garden in five years, and stacked up
'impressive wins along the way. He can be seen
around town daily, doing favors when asked,
and generally helping others out in ways only he
can-do and always with a smile and a wave,
Most of us never realize our dreams, but Max
did.
One thing my previous hometown has in
common with Fernandina is that they can both
proudly boast of having a local citizen who was
a giant of a man.

Energy plan
The Obama stimulus plan, as shown on the
congressional appropriations outline of Feb. 12,
2009, has itemized expenditures on energy issues
of $65.65 billion including $17.7 billion in public
transportation, Amtrak and high speed rail.
There is also $11 billion for dealing with our
100-year-old technology, badly outdated electri-
cal grid and upgrading to a "smart grid" which


- a


I


would allocate power efficiently between inter-
connected power producers and consumers.
That leaves $36.95 billion for weatherization,
new battery technologies, loan guarantees for
wind farms, solar incentives, fossil fuel research
and energy efficiency.
That'sOK as a stimulus to keep us from total-
ly dropping into a hole but for the most part it is
addressing only a small part of the built envi-
ronment, the public sector, which comprises
only 7 percent of the built environment The pri-
vate sector makes up the remaining 93 percent
of the built environment.
Ed Mazria of Architecture 2030 proposes an
interesting stimulus plan designed to pay for
itself, get this economy off the floor and create
nine million jobs in the next two years. Nassau
County is dependent heavily on construction
and real estate jobs and we are experiencing
more unemployment than many other parts of
the country as a result of what's happened to the
building sector.
The Architecture 2030 stimulus plan uses
the federal government-to buy down your mort-
gage rate for different levels of energy efficien-
cy renovations to existing buildings and similar
incentives for maximizing the performance of
new construction. It uses a trillion dollars of pri-
vate investment incentivized with mortgage rate
buydowns and tax advantages as compared to the
taxpayer-funded $65.65 billion for energy in the
Obama stimulus package and with the nine mil-
lion jobs it would create, the income tax rev-
enues would pay for the subsidized interest rate
buydowns and accelerated depreciation.
Rather than explain the whole thing here, I
refer you to two Internet links. First watch the
video explaining the plan at www.architec-
ture2030.org/investment/investment_web-
cast/2030investmentplan_webcast_enews.html.
Then to see the plan as written you can download
a pdf file at: architecture2030.org/down-
loads/2030stimulusplan.pdf.
On its face it may sound too good to be true
when everything is looking so gloomy in this
economy, but it makes sense that it could really
bring the economy out of the doldrums and get
us closer to energy independence and would
give us more spending money in our pockets
with much lower utility bills and lower mort-
gage payments. With the importance of our
building industry jobs here in Nassau County, it
would make a lot of sense to seriously consider
getting behind the plan.

Easter and early spring a busy time


Easter season is still
upon us and we have
reason to celebrate!
Our Savior lives! The
celebration began on Palm
Sunday, April 5 at 6:30 p.m.,
when the First Baptist
Church music ministry pre-
sented "The Risen Christ," a
musical drama. On Maundy
Thursday, we had our silent
communion from 6-7 p.m.
Then Resurrection Sunday,

with a Sunrise Service at'
Peters Point at 7 a.m. We
came back to the church for
a continental breakfast at 8
a.m., life groups at 9 a.m. and
worship at 10:15. What a glo-
rious morning to celebrate!
Our Savior lives!,
Parent-child dedication
was April 19.

Pastor Chris Taylor
reflects on repentance.
f'hile"doingsome reading
I cC en lIyI I' 1 camearo' -_" al"
article by Richard Owen
Roberts on the subject of
repentance. The title of the
article is 'Seven Maxims of
Repentance.' Over the next
seven months, I want to
share these with you along
with some of his comments
about each one.
"Maxim #1: True repen-
tance is a Gift from God.
'True repentance does not
come from within us. It is not'
a natural trait that lies dor-
mant, just waiting to be
around and utilized. It is not
a learned response that we
can gain from books or good
teachers. There is only one
source of repentance: it is a

gift given by
God. (Psalm
51:10-13 and
Ezekial
36:22-27,
and Malachi.
4:5-6).'
"'Blun-
ders of the
Benevolent.'
Have you
ever visited
someone
who was
hurting and
not known
what to say?
Some of us


are 'fixers' and just need to
say something.
Unfortunately, this usually
results in what we call
'Blunders of the Benevolent.'
This would be the person
who tells the mother who
lost her child, 'Well, at least
you have two other children.'
In the mind of the' person
speaking, it sounds really
good at the time, but to the
grieving mother, it sounds
cold and heartless.
"Before you speak, it is
important to try to imagine
what the other person might
be going through. Job 2:11-
13 tells us that Job's friends
just sat with him for a week,
and never said a word,
because his pain was too
great. In John 11:35 Jesus
wept after seeing the pain of
Lazarus's mourners.
"In the midst of a tragedy,
sometimes the best thing we
can say is nothing and always
the best thing we can do is
love!". ,

A total of 2,759 Florida

An estimated 70 percent
(or 12.6 million of the state's

sons living in the state of
Florida do not have a person-
al relationship with Jesus
Christ. An estimated 10 mil-
lion persons (including

"God's Plan of Salvation"
(by Open Windows, my
devotional source).
God loves you. "For God
so loved the world, that He
gave His only begotten Son.'
that whosoever believeth in
Him should riot perish, but
have everlasting life." (John
3:16)
I The HolySpirit convicts
you of siinfA A nd henHejis
conie, H i..;Ill iefove!thi6ii
world of sin, because they
believe not on me." (John
16:8-9).
You response is to repent
of sin. "For I am not come to
call the righteous, but sin-
ners to repentance." (Matt.
9:13).
And to trust in Christ as
Savior and Lord "That if
thou shalt confessed with thy'
mouth the Lord Jesus, and
shalt believe in thine heart
that God hath raised from
the dead, thou shalt be
saved. For with the heart
man believeth unto right-
eousness; and with the
mouth confession is made
unto salvation. For whosoev-


er shall call upon the name of
the Lord shall be saved#'
(Romans 10:9-10, 13).
Grow in Christ by follow-
ing through with baptism
and uniting with a church.
You will find new Christian
friends and grow in your new
life with Christ.
Yulee Baptist Church pas-
- tor, the Rev. Michael Fox's
corner in their mailout, The
Promise, writes: "What will
you do in Vacation Bible
School this year? It should be
a question not of if I will
work in VBS, but where I will
work in VBS. There is some-
'thing for everyone to do. If
all you can do is pray each
night as we have a VBS, you
are needed.
"VBS is a very special
event in the life of our
church. It requires a lot of
time and hard work, but if we
make an impact on the chil-
dren of our community, it will
all be worthwhile. Pray that
the Lord will use us to make
the greatest impact ever! I
would also like for you to
pray for the other ministries
of our church. The Lord.is
alive in our church and he is
working in many ways. Pray
that he will continue to do so.
Bro. Mike."
Do you look at other peo-
ple and wish God had given
you their talents? We all envy
each other's lived at times,
but there is a way to develop
more and better talents: Use
the ones God has given you!
In Matthew 25, The Parable
of the Talents speaks very
clearly on this issue. The ser-
vants who use their talents
and don't bury them are
rewarded with the words,
"Well done, good and faithful
servant." We can all look for-
ward to hearing those words
if we are truly yielded to
God's will, including using
our talents for His glory.
All that to say: We Would
love to have you use your
musical talents by joining us
in the choir. I am confident
that God will reward you by
increasing your talent and
will probably give you some
more of those "desires of
your heart" because of your
faihffllnesgs.dcir nflo'-i A -o ld
drlAnd the beikpartiwiq 'adl
have a great time worship-
ping and fellowshipping
together as we practice.
Come join us!
Erma Bombeck said,
"When I stand before God at
the end of my life, I would
hope that I would not have a
single bit of talent left and
could say, 'I used everything
you gave me."' That's proba-
bly not exactly accurate, but
you get the picture." Angie.,
McClellan, Interim Minister
of Music, Yulee Baptist
Church.
"May our Great Heavenly
Father'continue to watch
over us and keep us in tis
loving care."

Sierra Club plants elm trees for Earth Day

Nassau Sierra Club planted two
Mrinceton American elm trees
at the Nassau County Judicial
Annex in Yulee on Wednesday
with the assistance of
Administrative Judge Robert
Foster.
Ray Roberts, who directed
the elm planting project for
Nassau Sierra, said the tree
planting was chosen as the
club's Earth Day project '"tq
symbolize the importance of
frees in our lives and the need
to protect them and increase
their numbers."
Once the dominant feature
in the eastern American land-
scape, the Aierican elm ruled
supreme as the shade tree of
choice for generations until, in
the early.1930s, a fungal.infec-
tion borne in beetles was intro-
duced into the United States


American landscape, the American elm ruled
supreme as the shade tree of choice for genera-
tions until, in the early 1930s, afungal infec-
tion borne in beetles was introduced into the
United States and wiped out 99 percent of
American elm trees.


and wiped out 99 percent of
American elm trees over a peri-
od of decades.,
The Princeton American
elm had been selected by a
wholesale tree grower in New
Jersey from a single specimen
around 1920 because of its
strong horticultural traits and
resistance to elm maladies.
Cuttings grafted from this tree
onto American, elm root stock
have had a 95 percent survival
rate. This tree is not a hybrid


but a true American elm
(Ulmus Americana) grown
from cuttings from trees
descended from the original
Princeton elm first selected in
1920. They are produced on
their own root.
In.Northeast Florida these
large, graceful specimens with
their upright, vase-shaped habit.
are predicted to grow six feet a
year during its early develop-
- ment. Eventually, it will grow
as tall as 80 to 100 feet.

HOMEFINALE


.BETH JONES/NEWS-LEADER
The Yulee High School baseball team's final home game
of the season was Tuesday when the Hornets hosted
Bishop Snyder. The visitors won 11-2. The visiting
Cardinals took a the lead in the second inning thanks to
a three-run home run. "We just didn't respond," said
Will Minor, YHS head baseball coach. "We left several
men on base and didn't hit the ball well at all. Hopefully
we will respond to this loss and be competitive in the
district tournament." The Hornets could muster just
three hits on the night. Dylan Ellis, above, was on the
mound for the Hornets. Yulee played at Jackson Thurs-
day and, cap the regular season tonight at Gainesville.
Episcopal hosts the district tournament next week. It
was senior night Tuesday. They appear on 13A.


Cyclists can lean on elbows to avoid UTS


Q I am an avid rider, but my hands
go numb when I am cycling. Got
any thoughts?

A Symptoms of bicycling-induced
. ulnar tunnel syndrome are com-
monly seen in people who do a lot of rid-
ing. The combination of prolonged grip-
ping and constant leaning on the
handlebars can lead to sustained pres-
sure on the ulnar nerve, which causes
hand weakness and sensation changes
most commonly in the fourth and fifth
fingers.
Patients will often report they have
begun to notice it is becoming more dif-
ficult to do fine motor tasks with the
hand, such as writing and picking up
change, and that their last two fingers
are numb.This is different from carpal
tunnel syndrome, which causes numb-
ness in the first three fingers.
Another common neurologic com-
pression in cyclists is caused by the,
hard seat and leads to compression of
the pudendal nerve, which causes
numbness in the groin and upper thigh
region.
A study of 169 participants in a bicy-
cle touring race found 22 had com-
plaints of hand numbness and weakness
of at least one week's duration, while
nearly 10 percent reported they had had
symptoms for almost six months.
Patients with this condition show typical
physical signs and further diagnostic
workup may not be needed. However, if
other conditions are suspected or need


to be ruled out, then
radiographs, MRIs, or
nerve conduction stud-
ies may be required.
Treatment of bicy-
[ cle-induced ulnar tun-
nel syndrome usually
involves rest, splinting,
padded gloves and anti-
inflammatory medica-
tions. The duration of
SPORTS symptoms often signals
the likely duration until
MEDICINE recovery; that is, the
GREGORY longer you have it, the
longer it takes to get
SMITH, M.D. better.
Riders are encour-
aged to seek changes
in position with the handlebars, such as
leaning on the elbows instead of the
hands. Recovery is usually complete
without a need for surgical treatment.

Carbs benefit exercise
Carbohydrate intake before a game
has always been recommended to play-
ers. Pasta, such as spaghetti, is a com-
mon choice for a pre-game meal.
Carbohydrates supply a short-term fuel,
which is readily available when exercise
begins. Some new research by the nutri-
tional team of the Pittsburgh Steelers
has shown that some carbohydrate
intake during exercise can be beneficial
as well.
Research has shown continued car-


bohydrate intake can delay the onset of
muscle fatigue during exercise. Snacks
are now supplied to the Steeler players
during halftime in hopes of warding off
a second-half loss of energy.
The players can snack on a menu of
fruits, cereals, gummy bears or a mix-
ture of nuts, M&Ms and raisins. The
amount of intake is limited to about two
cups. Other choices include sports
drinks, such as Gatorade.
Research has also shown that carbo-
hydrate intake immediately after intense
exercise can help speed muscle recov-
ery. The players are instructed to eat
again as they enter the locker room,
before hitting the showers, or going for
media interviews.
The timing of intake is most impor-
tant. The research showed when carbo-
hydrates were taken during the first 30
minutes post-exercise, a faster and more
significant muscle recovery occurred.
This rebound effect is not seen when
the intake occurs after 30 minutes. This
narrow window of opportunity is not
completely understood.

This column is written to discuss
issues regarding sports, medicine and
safety. It is not intended to serve as a
replacement for treatment by your regular
doctor Specific concerns should be dis-
cussed with a physician. Mail questions to

cess this year was its defense,
.which gave up an average of

tion Team,One defeated
Celebration Team Two 11-4.
Team One was led by Ryan
Jones, who was tied for first
place in home runs with six

ished second for the batting
title with a .808 batting aver-
age.

Sea trout fishermen will
experience an excellent tide
this weekend with a flood tide
arriving at'the St. Marys inlet
at 9:41 a.m. Saturday. I would
start my morning by casting a
silver-and-blue colored Storm

oyster bars in Tiger Basin
until the tide begins to fall.
Next, I would either run to
the upper reaches of Bells or
Langsford creeks and drift

trout float close to the deep
ends of boat docks.,
Beach fishermen will also
have an excellent tide to fish

slowly along the bottom and
close to the jetty rocks using
a "Fish Finder" setup.


Offshore fishing should be
excellent this weekend for
red snapper and gag grouper
at FA fish haven. Trolling for
king mackerel, cobia and bar-
racuda should happen any
day now with the arrival of
warm ocean water tempera-
tures. The Amberjack Hole
and HH fish havens are both
excellent fish havens for
enjoying some of the first
trolling action of the year.
Concentrate your trolling
efforts at offshore wrecks
and big rock ledges where
baitfish concentrations are
more likely to be located.

Sailing Club holds

Nassau Sound Regatta


CAPT jOHN BURNS
For the News Lader
The Amelia Island Sailing
Club held its Nassau Sound
Regatta April 18.
The offshore race starts
on the north end of Amelia
Island between buoys.15 and
13 at the entrance to St.
Marys inlet. The offshore
course takes the racers to the
southern tip of Amelia Island,
where the boats turn around
the Nassau Sound buoy and
make their way back north to
the starting line, which
becomes the end of the race
for the fleet..
For three or four days
prior to the race, there were
consistent easterly winds,
with gusts to 30 knots, which
built up good-size seas with
breaking waves of five feet or
more, making the tacking at
the start challenging for all
the crews.
Seven boats, ranging in
size from 27-42 feet, started
the race with 10-15 knot
winds and four- to five-foot
seas hitting them in the stern
quarter. These conditions
made for a rolling and'wallow-
ing ride the 13 miles down
island.
By the time the first boat,
Mary Wanderer, turned the
buoy, some of even the sea-
soned crew members aboard


the boats had a similar green
hue as the ocean. :
The race back north was
totally different with the boats
beating and crashing into the
waves and wind with spray
coming well over the bows of
the boats. However, by the
time the boats were parallel
to Peters Point, the wind and
seas began to lessen and the
remainder of the trip proved
to be a more pleasant ride.
All the boats completed
the 26-mile race within 45
minutes of each other. By the
time the boats were back at
the dock, all the crew mem-
bers had regained their nor-
mal color and refreshments
were served to the hungry
participants.
At the award ceremonies
following the refreshments,
Sunday Mornin' Jazz, cap-
tained by Gene Sokolowski,
claimed first place; Baby
Blooz, captained by Thom
Mason, took second; and
Night Flyer with Steve Ritter
at the helm took third.
The Amelia Island Sailing
Club meets the first Tuesday
at the Kraft Athletic Club.
Social hour at 6:30 p.m; the
meeting starts at 7:30 p.m.
For information on the
club, call Charlie Steinkamp
at 583-3156, e-mail him at
