Serving your country



'It's a family thing'


RYAN SMITH
News-Leader
In the middle of the Persian Gulf, a floating city bus-
tles with activity. Thousands of men and women work
round the clock to support U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
Among them is a graduate of Fernandina Beach High
School.
"I moved (to Fernandina Beach) back in '93," said
NavyAirman Herbert Babin, the son of Herbert J. and the
late Maria Babin. "I joined back at the end of 2006. It
pretty much follows in my family. My dad's prior military,
my grandfather's prior military, my brother-in-law's mil-
itary. It's a family thing."
The 21-year-old aviation ordnanceman is one of 4,500
people stationed on the USS Ronald Reagan, an aircraft car-
rier currently deployed to the Persian Gulf.
"The USS Ronald Reagan is the newest carrier in the
Pacific Fleet We are a massive warship, 1,092 feet long,"
said Lt. Commander Ron Flanders, the carrier's public
information officer. "We weigh 97,000 tons. Our flight
deck is 4 1/2 acres of U.S. sovereign territory. We have
the most modern maritime airwing in the world, over 60
aircraft.... We are launching dozens of these aircraft a day
to support the folks'on the ground in Afghanistan."
As an aviation ordnanceman, Babin is responsible for
keeping those aircraft in fighting condition.
"We load different kinds of bombs and missiles. We
load bullets into the machine guns that the FA-18 (air-
plane) carries," Babin said. "We troubleshoot the jet to
make sure'the bombs and missiles are reading correct-
ly, to make sure that when the pilots go off on their mis-
sions they won't have any problems if they have to drop
the bombs or fire the missiles - but that's pretty much a
last-resort thing.
"If the boots on the. ground call up and say some-

thing's wrong, they'll call us up and say, 'We're having a
problem in such-and-such area,' and the pilots will g6 up
and take care of it"
"Airman Babin's job is critical to that support," Flanders
said. "They're really depending on him to make sure the
machine guns on that aircraft are working, that the ord-
nance is properly placed and working. In a way, their
lives could literally depend on how well he does his job.
... It's not something that you want just any 21-year-old to
do. You need someone responsible. You need someone
intelligent and thorough."
Babin, currently on his second deployment aboard
the USS Ronald Reagan, said,his time in the Navy has been
rewarding.
"I'm enjoying it. It's always different, every day. No
day's the same," he said. "You work with a lot of good peo-
ple. I'm learning things and going places I never thought.
I would. I guess you could say I'm having a pretty good
time."
The ship itself also continues to impress him. "I remem-
ber the first time I did a deployment on the Ronald
Reagan," he said. "Walking up and seeing the ship was
amazing. It's ridiculous that this big ship can float.... You

Fernandina Beach Commissioners
have adopted a tentative property tax
rate increase to make up for declining
property values in the city. Only city
commissioner Jeffrey Bunch support-
ed keeping the rate at its current lower
level.
The new rate would allow the same
property tax revenue to be collected in
2009-10 as this year, and had to be
raised because of declining property
values, according to City Finance
Director Patti Clifford. The proposed
rate can be lowered during upcoming
public hearings, but it cannot go any
higher.
A tentative millage rate of 4.4855
was adopted by commissioners at their
Tuesday meeting, up from 4.2209 last

Nassau County Commissioners will
discuss Wednesday whether to renew
a lobbyist's $75,000 a year contract.
"He's done a lot," commission Chair
Barry Holloway said, crediting attor-
ney Buddy Jacobs with a $60 million
project to widen A1A near Callahan.
Jacobs has a contract with the coun-
ty through Sept. 30. He's also paid
$75,000 a year by the city, and that
contract continues for another year.
City Manager Michael Czymbor
has credited Jacobs for luring a $1 mil-
lion federal contract t& improve the
city's airport.
Holloway discounted the notion
that federal stimulus money - the
American Recovery and Reinvestment
Act was proposed by President Obama
and approved by Congress earlier this
year - was coming anyway.
The A1A project, for example, has
been a priority "for years, but there's
never been any money. A lot of these
projects have been on the books for


year.
The rate com-
prises an ad valorem
(property tax) roll-
back rate of 4.240
mills and a debt serv-
ice rate of 0.2435
mills. The voter-
approved debt is
Bunch $473,030, said
Clifford. The rollback
rate would bring in
the same amount of revenue as the
previous year.
The county also levies property
taxes on municipal homeowners, but

uled to consider its tentative millage
rate until its regular meeting Monday

Washington level,

Holloway said.
Jacobs "I could not have
gone to Tallahassee
and gotten that
money. I don't have the contacts that
Mr. Jacobs had. I feel very, very con-
fident that he was instrumental in get-
ting us that money.
"I just have confidence in Mr.
Jacobs' law firm, that they can accom-
plish what we need to accomplish not
only at the federal level, but at the
state level," Holloway said. "... Without
that contact for our county, I don't
believe we would have gotten what
we got Would we have gotten some of
it? Probably - but I don't know how
much."

What does a cow in Chicago have in
common with a shrimp in Fernandina
Beach?
Both creatures are part of fundrais-
ing efforts benefiting community char-
ities. Artists such as Peter Max and
LeRoy Neiman took part in the cow-
painting fundraisers in Chicago, along
with Dublin rock band Radiohead.
As for the shrimp, this familiar crea-
ture is at the center of a new fundrais-
ing effort by Micah's Place, Nassau
County's domestic violence shelter.
Titled "Shrimp Expression," the
project will have area merchants spon-
soring one of'20 fiberglass shrimp
sculptures on which local artists will
unleash their creativity in January.
Sponsors may select their shrimp
design from pre-approved designs, or
they may commission a local artist to
paint it. Sponsorship of a Shrimp
Expression icon doesn't include per-


name recognition on the sculpture,
website recognition, official publica-
tions and VIP tickets to the gala auc-
tion.
A call to artists will be announced in
the coming weeks. Interested artists
and citizens will be able to submit
designs for consideration. The Shrimp
Expression Art Review Committee will
review all submissions and approve
those that best represent the scope of
the project and conform to the guide-
lines in' the Artist Agreement.
Approved designs will become part of
a portfolio for selection by prospective
sponsors. If a sponsor chooses an
artist's design, an honorarium of $500
will be paid to the artist upon comple-
tion, delivery and acceptance of the
sculpture.

fiberglass shrimp weighs in at 60.

Executive Director Shandra Riffey
explained to those gathered for the
project launch, the financial crisis has
caused an increase in the number of
women being abused by their part-
ners, which in turn has increased the
need for shelters like Micah's Place.
S"Because of the economic climate,
we were looking outside the box; we
were looking at doing some cutting-
edge fundraising."
Once the Micah's Place Auxiliary
came up with the idea to do a project
similar to the highly successful Cows

the talents of Bonnie Upright at

Special election


set to replace


late Sen. King


News-Leader
A special election is sched-
uled this fall to replace state
Sen. Jim King, a Jacksonville
Republican who died of cancer
last month.
Former state Rep. Aaron
Bean of Fernandina Beach is
among four candidates who
had previously expressed
interest in replacing King
when his term ended next
year because of legally man-
dated term limits. Bean, in
fact, had opened a campaign
account aiming for a 2010 elec-
tion.
Now, the candidates will
vie in a special primary elec-
tion Sept. 15 and special gen-
eral election Oct. 6 to replace
the late senator. Gov. Charlie
Crist set the dates for the elec-
tion Wednesday.
Candidates have until 5
p.m. Aug. 17 to submit peti-
tions to qualify for the elec-
tion.
King's widow, Linda, said
Wednesday she would not be
a candidate.
"While I am deeply hon-
ored and humbled to have
been asked to run for my late
husband's senate seat, it is not

in an announcement.
"Jim and I came in to this

In addition to Bean, candi-
dates who previously have
expressed interest in the seat
are former House Speaker
John Thrasher, Jacksonville
City Councilman Art Graham

Dan Quiggle.

Budget workshops will be held by Fernandina

The first public hearing on the city budget is set

Bunch made a motion at
Tuesday's meeting to keep the
property tax rate at this year's
level, but got no support from
other commissioners and the
motion died for lack of a sec-

-Commissioner Ken Walker
said it "would be irresponsible"
for the commission to keep the
rates too low. "If we set it lower
than we think necessary," he
said, "you go back with diffi-
culty to bring it back to higher
rates."
"We need to get it as low as
we can," said Commissioner
Tim Poynter. 'This is hedging
our bets ... as it stands right
now, I move to approve (the

county property appraiser's
office, compared to $2.04 bil-'
lion in 2008-9..
.Clifford could not yet calcu-
late the real amount property
owners will pay under the
new millage rate because other
tax fees such as mosquito con-
trol have not been deter-
mined. She also said that, theo-
retically, since house values
have gone down 6 percent,
many homeowners will not
see an increase in their city tax
bills.
'The city's not getting any
more money (from the rate
increase)," Clifford said. "It's a
mathematical game due to
falling property values."
According to a document
from the Nassau County
Property Appraiser's Office,
total tax revenue at the new
rate would amount to $8.3 mil-
lion.

in house fire


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News-Leader
Two pets died and a sin-
gle-family house on South
Fletcher Avenue was severely
damaged in a fire during a
lightning storm Wednesday.
According to City Fire
Chief Daniel Hanes, firefight-
ers responded to the blaze at
2851 South Fletcher Ave.
about 5p.m., after a caller stat-
ed hearing the sound of loud
thunder and then noticed the
house was on fire.
Engine 102 arrived at the
scene and firefighters report-
ed seeing visible smoke and
flames coming from a bed-
room on the first floor. On
entering the building with
hose lines, firefighters.
encountered extensive heat
and flames inside the front
door, according to Hanes.
The home sustained heavy
smoke, heat and water dam-


age. According to Hanes, 14
firefighters worked 20 min-
utes to get the fire under con-
trol.
The owners, Jon and
Jennifer Lasserre, were not
home at the time, but a
babysitter and an infant made
it out safely.
A dog and cat that were on
the second floor of the house
died in the fire.
The origin of the fire was
determined to be in the north-
west bedroom. The house,
said Hanes, was a total loss
with heavy damage. No other
injuries were reported.
Hanes said heavy winds
from the storm also brought
down power lines all over the
city, and several fences and
tree limbs were blown down.
There was some minor flood-
ing, he said, which made it
difficult for firefighters to
respond to calls.

Coast Guard defends U.S. for 219 years


The U.S. Coast Guard is this
nation's oldest maritime agency
of the U.S. Armed Forces and
on Tuesday celebrated its 219th
birthday.
Today's Coast Guard is an
amalgamation of five former fed-
eral services: Revenue Cutter
Service, Lighthouse Service,
Steamship Inspection Service,
Bureau of Navigation and
Lifesaving Service. In early
days, each agency operated
independently with overlapping
responsibilities, was often shuf-
fled from one end ,of the gov-
ernment to the other and
received constant name
changes along the way.
A historical timeline shows
in 1790 Congress authorized
the creation of a maritime serv-
ice to enforce customs laws.
Vessels were assigned to ensure
tariffs were paid, contraband
intercepted and ships protected
from piracy. In 1831 the fleet
conducted its first search and
rescue mission.
In 1915 the "Act to Create
the Coast Guard" was passed
combining the Life-Saving Ser-
vice and Revenue Cutter Ser-
vice. 1932 saw the Steamboat
Inspection Service and Bureau
of Navigation merge into the
Bureau of Navigation and
Steamboat Inspection. By 1936
that agency was reorganized
and renamed the Bureau of
Marine Inspection and Naviga-
tion. Then in 1939 Lighthouse
Services was transferred to the
Coast Guard (CG) empowering
it to discharge all the adminis-
trative duties relative to light-
houses and navigational aids.
In 1942 responsibility of mer-
chant marine licensing and ves-
sel safety under the Bureau of
Marine Inspection and Navi-


nation fell to
the CG. Fre-
quent corm-
m a n d
authority
changes
passed back
and forth
between the
Navy De-
VETERAN'S apartment
CORNER and the De-
... apartment of
, Commerce.
Debbie Finally, in
Walsh 1967 all
realigned
components were placed under
the operational control of the
CG with command authority
resting with the newly formed
Department of Transportation.
In March 2003 command once
again transferred the CG to the
newly created Department of
Homeland Security.
The Coast Guard's present
core mission includes search
and rescue, environmental pro-
tection and response, maritime
law enforcement, inspection and
licensing, aids to navigation,
waterway management, boat-
ing safety, marine science, ice
operations, port safety and secu-
rity, homeland security and
defense operations.
In addition to its everyday
peacetime mission, the CG sup-
plements the Navy during times
of war and conflict when opera-
tional control of the agency
shifts to the Department of the
Navy. The CG has been mili-
tarily involved in every war the
U.S. has fought from the Civil
War to the current war in Iraq.
On Sept. 11, 2001, USCG
units were among the first mil-
itary units to respond to the
aftermath of attacks on U.S. soil.

They provided the initial secu-
rity and assistance to those in
need with particular emphasis
for protection of our nation's
Coastline, ports and waterways.
In November 2001 in response
to continued threats, U.S. Navy
coastal warships on patrol were
assigned to Operation Nobel
Eagle and for the first time in
history naval ships were em-
ployed jointly under CG com-
mand.
In early 2003 USCG units
deployed in support of Opera-
tion Iraqi Freedom and at the
height of early operations
included the employment of
1,250 CG .active duty and
Reserve personnel.
The infamous myth, "Red
sky at night, sailor's delight; red
sky in the morning, sailors take
warning" brings out the best in
our CG assets. While many
seek coverage ashore there will
be some who choose to defy
the angry violence of the sea.
When good fortune is not in
their favor our heroic rescuers
will readily respond. Over the
years, search and rescue mis-
sions have become one of the
Coast Guard's primary opera-
tional focuses.
Non-fictional movies like
"The Perfect Storm" with actor
George Clooney portrayed the
Coast Guard's real-life rescue
efforts on behalf of the Andrea
Gall, a fishing boat based out
of Gloucester, Mass. Sadly, their
final fate was listed as "lost at
sea" some 575 miles off the
coast. The movie was based on
a book written by Sebastian
Junger which also covered the
rescue by USCG Cutter
Tamaroa of the sailboat crew


Though it is the smallest of the five branches
of the military, it is no less important than
its counterparts.


Satori in the Atlantic waters and
another rescue effort of a
downed CG helicopter who
themselves were also caught in
the same storm. Surviving that
crash were Maj. David Ruvola,
Capt. Graham Buschor, SSgt.
Jimmy Mioli and TSgt. John
Spillane. Crewmember and
pararescue jumper TSgt. Rick
Smith was listed as lost at sea.
In 2004 during Hurricane
Katrina records indicate Coast
Guardsmen were on hand to
rescue over 27,000 people from
rooftops and flooded neighbor-
hoods. They also assisted in the
evacuation of an additional 9,500
patients and medical personnel
from stricken hospitals and
nursing homes.
Then in 2006 another Holly-
wood movie brought renewed
fame to the efforts of the CG.
"The Guardian" with Kevin
Costner and Ashton Kutcher
portrayed the extensive train-
ing and mission insights of CG
rescue swimmers. This box
office hit brought public aware-
ness to this special breed of man
known as the "Coastie."
As recently as July 2009 the
media drew public attention and
well deserved headline news in
its coverage of the CG Cutter
Harriet Lane. While deployed
to the Caribbean the Harriet
Lane disrupted several high-


speed vessel operations, includ-
ing one drug-related interdic-
tion mission that netted a cash
seizure of $8.5 million, one of
the largest in CG and Joint
Interagency Task Force South
history.
It's regrettable that on each
Aug. 4th very little fanfare is
made of this significant anniver-
sary involving one of our pres-
tigious branches of the armed
forces. Though it is the smallest
of the five branches of the mili-
tary, it is no less important than
its counterparts the Army, Navy,
Marine Corps and Air Force.
'Each branch, though assigned
unique responsibilities, is chal-
lenged to cohesively interface
with one another to ensure our
goals for the defense of the
United States are achieved.
Though this auspicious
anniversary has passed it's not
too late to applaud this excep-
tional group of men and women
who choose to serve with pride
and dignity in the United States
Coast Guard in defending the
well being of all citizens of the
United States. Happy Anniver-
sary Team Coast Guard!

Inducing hypothermia aids cardiac patients

JASON YURGARTIS -***--ii -
New-Leader I "W iIIilii- 7


Nassau County Fire Rescue
personnel will soon be dealing
with an increased number of
hypothermia cases among car-
diac arrest patients.
Hypothermia, a medical
emergency that occurs when
your body loses heat faster than
it can produce heat, causing a
dangerously low body temper-
ature, is normally of little con-
cern to anyone in a typically
tepid climate such as Florida's.
However, in recent years,
some Florida hospitals have
been dealing with a spike in
hypothermia. And it's all
because medical professionals
have been purposely inducing it
in patients. Soon, county emer-
gency personnel will be doing
the same.
While this might sound
counterintuitive, it's part of a
protocol some hospitals are
implementing that developed
from a revisiting of research
from the 1950's, and it's gaining
steam worldwide.
Shands Jacksonville, a des-
tination for many cardiac arrest
patients in Nassau County, has
had a therapeutic hypothermia
protocol since 2006. And doc-
tors from the hospital were on
hand recently to train Nassau
County Fire Rescue personnel
how to properly induce
hypothermia in transit. They
purport that by doing so in the
field, brain functions impaired
by lack of oxygen during car-
diac arrest will be better pro-
tected, and patients will have a
greater chance of survival.
"By (inducing therapeutic
hypothermia), one in seven car-


As a result ofthis treatment, Nassau County
should see a 40 percent increase in survival
statisticsfor cardiac arrest patients.
DR.ANDREWLIM


diac arrest patients can walk
out of the hospital with mini-
mal or no deficit in terms of
brain cell loss," said Dr. Joseph
Sabato, assistant professor in
the Department of Emergency
Medicine at UF and Shands in
Jacksonville.
Sabato said the procedure
involves administering a 4
degree Celsius cold saline IV
and placing ice packs on the
body of the patient. The idea is
to drop the body's core tem-
perature by 1 degree Celsius
per hour, he said, a process that
continues at the hospital.
According to statistics given
during a training presentation
by Sabato and Dr. Andrew Lim
and Dr. Zach Dembitsky, both
third-year emergency medicine
residents under his direction,
there were 85 cases of cardiac
arrest in Nassau County last
year, of which eight patients
experienced the return of spon-
taneous circulation.
They said of 300,000 cardiac
arrest patients in the U.S. last
year, there was an estimated
survival rate of 3-5 percent. But
Lim said inducing hypothermia
in the field could save one out
of every seven patients who
would normally die.
Additionally, for every six
patients that would have been
in a coma, one will walk away


with a good neurological out-
come as a result of the treat-
ment.
"As a result of this treat-
ment, Nassau County should
see a 40 percent increase in sur-
vival statistics for cardiac al rest
patients," Lim said.
Beyond the presentation by
the doctors and related written
tests, Nassau County Fire
Rescue paramedics received
field training in the back of one
of their trucks courtesy of the
SIMM, a patient simulator.
Essentially a highly
advanced and electronically
equipped mannequin, the sim-
ulator is connected to a laptop
computer where training per-
sonnel can input medical symp-
toms and scenarios to the man-
nequin, which has a responsive
pulse and body temperature
and can even speak to trainees.
The SIMM was purchased
through a Department of
Health Emergency Medical
Services grant, said county Fire
Inspector and Public
Information Officer Frank
Elkins. He said the Nassau
County Commission approved
the grant in an effort to pro-
vide advanced medical training
for those dealing with cardiac
arrest and other medical emer-
gencies.
"The classroom and hands-

paramedics with 'real life'
assessments in a controlled set-
ting," said Nassau County


Assistant Fire Chief Sam
Young. "NCFR is involved with
advanced medical training to
provide the best possible care
for our citizens in the pre-hos-
pital setting."
Young said the protocol to
induce therapeutic hypother-


mia in cardiac arrest patients
will be in full effect as soon as
coolers for the cold saline IV
bags arrive and a few rescue
workers who were on vacation
complete training, likely in less
than two weeks.

Elm Street banquet 'off the chain'


Investments are made often, but the
greatest investment is in our chil-
dren. Letting them know how much
we want them to be successful, it
has to begin with us, the parents, at
home, and spread to the community.
How do you describe the Elm Street
Little League sports banquet? Awesome,
really, or as the kids would say - off
the chain. A standing room-only crowd
of family and friends was at the Martin
Luther King Center, celebrating the end
of a good season.
Some of our city and county officials
were present and took an active part in
the banquet celebration. Former mayor
and founder of the Elm Street Little
League, Charles Albert, introduced his
son, Reginald Albert, our emcee. Also
there was Joe Gerrity, former mayor
and commissioner, who led the Little
League pledge, as well as introduced
our speaker. County Commissioner
Danny Leeper gave our welcome.
Harvest Outreach Ministries choir,
where the Rev. Dr. James Smith serves
as pastor, along with his wife, Sis. Tina
Smith, sang to the glory and honor of
God, "Rejoice! We're reaping the har-
vest God gave to us."
With all the former things out of the
way, our speaker came forth with a mes-
sage our children could and did under-
stand. He also thanked our leaders and
parents for coming out. It is very impor-
tant to our children to have them
involved. He spoke on their level, want-
ing to make sure they understood.
Learning is a lifetime process to be
good at anything you do. As he spoke to
them, he asked them to remember so
they could repeat to him what he said
and they did. They can do anything they
want to do; there is no limit. I can do
anything, you can do anything and we
can do anything. One day you may want
a new car, house or money; to do that,
you've got to stay in school, stay away
from drugs, stay away from violence.
They repeated that back to him.
He told them, "Now it's gonna get a
little sticky."
To be successful, they need to decide


what they want to do.
He gave four Ps for
Them to remember: (1)
have a plan, decide
S '"" what you want to be;
S"' (2) prepare to imple-
ment your plan, that
means making As and
Bs; (3) perseverance:
don't stop working,
NOW AND hang in there; (4)
THEN prayer: never forget
the power of prayer,
always remember to
Maybelle pray. It's not about
Kirkland remembering these
things, it's about doing
them and you can be successful. They
were able to repeat all of them back to
him, one at a time.
To the parents, remember to be dedi-
cated, be their buddy, but be a parent
first. You are the parents, not the child.
Encourage them and be a resource to
them, because one of these young men
or women could easily be the president
one day.
President Wayne Peterson, Charles
Albert, Joe Gerrity and Danny Leeper
presented plaques to Sheriff Nat Glover
and Reggie Albert for continuous com-
munity support and to Elm Street
sports.
Each team member received tro-
phies and lots of things in their bags
from the many sponsors of the league.
There are more than 27 sponsors and
the league continues to grow.
Teams included the Giants (Tyrone
Rhode, coach), T-ball Reds (Wayne
William, coach; Warren Grant, manager,
team mother, Angie Sanders), T-Ball
Rexs (Harry Hill, coach; Trelly
Coverdell, manager), Major Reds (Troy
Way, coach; Robin Raysor, manager),
Hawks (Robbie Jones, coach; Terrance
Roberts and Javon Owens, managers).
Wayne Peterson has been with Elm
Street Little League more than 16 years.
Even though he has no children in the
league, he enjoys his involvement. It's
not about him, it's about our children in
the communities. He needs more


involvement from you, the parents, from
beginning to end, and not just on ban-
quet or award day.
Yes, there was a packed house for
the banquet. You, the parents, family
and friends need to be there from open-
ing day through the banquet. Stop let-
ting the league babysit your children,
then you show up, the proud people at
the banquet. Where else could you have
gotten a banquet as Elm Street Little
League had for free? Think of how
much it could have been if the parents
and family and friends had paid $10
each. However, we know it's not about
the dollars; it's about our children. That
meal alone was worth it. Let's move for-
ward, the year is 2009.
Wayne Peterson says, "Thanks for
another great season. Especially grate-
ful to the sponsors and community lead-
ers who always come out and support
the Little League's milestones. The
coaches, managers and other volunteers
are invaluable."
He also says, "Continue to teach,
motivate and encourage our youth to be
the very best they can be6'Parents, get
more involved in your children's activi-
ties. The more involved parents are, the
more successful your children will be in
every area of their lives. And many
thanks to Sheriff Nathaniel "Nat" Glover
for providing words of wisdom to our
youth. He is a true example of hard
work. Reginald Albert said, "It has been
an extreme honor to have been the
emcee. To the parents, thank you, and
hope to see you next season."
Please mark your calendars for
grandparents day, Sept. 13, at the Peck
Center. Time will be given later. Make
plans to attend.

FUN

BY CHRIS DEVITTO
Palatka Daily News
PALATKA - Stranded trucks, sheriffs deputies and muddy
people might be found on one of Putnam County's dirt roads
after a heavy rain.
But on the last weekend of each month, it's not only normal,
people revel in it.
The Hogwaller Mud Bog on County Road
310, about 15 miles southwest of Palatka, ,'
is 100 acres of pure joy for people who like
horsepower and mud.
"I like to come out here to sling mud,
burn fuel and hang out with the boys," said
Ocala resident Vito Constantio over the
roar of high performance motors.
Near the back of a 4-acre, fenced-off mud
pit, three high performance and high clear- -
ance mud bogging trucks, including
Constantino's, were lined up waiting for
another run.
"We all work on the trucks together," he ,,. .
said. "I've been doing this probably since
I've been driving, just not this big."
One of Hogwaller's owners, businessman
and ex-county commissioner Skeet Alford,
said he came up with the idea after the
county passed an ordinance restricting mud
bogging about two years ago.
The mud bog is located on more than 100 acres and includes a
4-acre mud pit with parking and 80 acres of four-wheeler trials.
Another 500 acres of trails have been added and will be open
on Aug. 8 and 9 for ATV and UTV use only.
Admission is $15 for Saturday and,$10 Sunday. Overnight
stays cost $15 per day.
- Shayne Hoffman, a Fort McCoy resident, said he and his
family come to the bog every month.
"I bring my kids, girlfriend, my mom and dad and we all have
a good time," he said. "I've had a blast with it, it's good clean
fun."
Interlachen resident Cody Fadler said he comes to run his
truck and six four-wheelers.
"I come out because it's fun and we get dirty. It's better than
Disney World," he said.

afteilife for one last shot at
stardom - if tey can work


out the kinks after being
dead for so many years.


What ensues is oftentimes
more hilarious than harmo-
nious as the earnest young
singers try to overcome their
assorted neurosis to mount a
show and land a coveted
record deal.
They're dreaming of the
"biggest comeback since
Lazarus," as they put it, but
discover they have a long
way to go since those high
school days rehearsing in the
stockroom after their day
jobs at the local department


store.
Directed and choreo-
graphed by Steven Flaa,
returning to Alhambra for
the first time in almost 10
years, "Forever Plaid" is an
affectionate revue that cap-
tures the innocence of a
bygone era when Ed Sullivan
was "the Switzerland of vari-
ety shows," turning the bat-
tleground of the family den.
into neutral territory.

Market

to offer

free treats

Saturday
FortheNews-Leader
The Fernandina Farmers
Market will have a free treat
for the first 300 shoppers on
Saturday as its thank you for
their support.
According to the USDA,
the Fernandina Farmers
Market is one of the approxi-
mately 4,800 in the country
and 120 in Florida.
The Fernandina Farmers
Market began in November
2002 and currently hosts
farmers and producers sell-
ing a wide variety of prod-
ucts, including all natural
pork, cheese from owned
goat and cow herds, seasonal
vegetables, organic oranges
and grapefruit, a variety of
lettuces, tomatoes and more.
In the most recent sea-
son, the Fernandina Farmers
Market had on average 1,500
shoppers on Saturday morn-
ing as it continues to comple-
ment the historic downtown
with its focus of produce, pre-
pared foods and plants.
"Farmers markets are
good for everyone" says
Stacy Miller, executive direc-
tor of the Farmers Market
Coalition, a non-profit sup-
porting farmers markets
across the country. 'They are
good for your health, good
for your community and good
for the economy. Not to men-
tion they offer the freshest
foods from America's most
entrepreneurial farmers and
preserve our country's agri-
cultural traditions."
Other facts about farmers
markets:
* California, New York,
Iowa, Illinois, Pennsylvania,
Wisconsin, Michigan,
Massachusetts, Ohio and
Kentucky are the states with
the most farmers markets.
* The USDA estimates
there are an average of 31
vendors per farmers market,
providing opportunities for
more than 130,000 direct-
marketing farmers across the
country.
* More than 740 markets
operate nationwide between
November and May, a time
often considered "off sea-
son." This number is grow-
ing.
, The USDA's Agriculture
Census reported more than
$1.2 billion in direct farm-to-
consumer sales in 2007, the
majority of these at farmers

Vaccines vital to community's health


JENNE'T WILSON-BAKER
Executive Director: CREED

Vaccines prevent disease in the people
who receive them and protect those who
come into contact with unvaccinated indi-
viduals.
Newborn babies are immune to many
diseases because they have antibodies
they got from, their mothers. However,
the duration of this immunity may last
only a month to about a year. However,
young children do not have maternal
immunity against some vaccine-preventa-
ble diseases, such as whooping cough.
If a child is not vaccinated and is
exposed to a disease germ, the child's
body may not be strong enough to fight
the disease. Before vaccines, many chil-


dren died from dis-
A eases that vaccines
now prevent, such as
, whooping cough,
S a measles and polio.
SThose same germs
.1 7 exist today, but babies
are now protected by
vaccines, so we do not see these diseases
as often.
Immunizing individual children also
helps to protect the health of our commu-
nity, especially those people who are not
immunized. People who are not immu-
nized include those who are too young to
be vaccinated (e.g., children less than a
year old cannot receive the measles vac-
cine but can be infected by the measles'
virus), those who cannot be vaccinated


for medical reasons (e.g., children with
leukemia), and those who cannot make
an adequate response to vaccination.
Also protected, therefore, are people
who received a vaccine, but who have not
developed immunity. In addition, people
who are sick will be less likely to be
exposed to disease germs that can be
passed around by unvaccinated children.
Immunization also slows down or stops
disease outbreaks.
For more information contact your
local health department or: www.cdc.
gov/vaccines/vac-gen/importance.htm.
Jennett Wilson-Baker, RN, BSN, is the
executive director of CREED, the Coalition
for the Reduction/Elimination ofEthnic
Disparities in Health. For more informa-
tion, call 321-2555 or 556-3363.

COMMUNITY THANKS

Generosity
You may find the largest independent ter-
minal operator in North America and a non-
profit agency which provides services for
abused and neglected children to be an unlike-
ly combination, however that is exactly what
happened recently when Kinder Morgan,
which operates the port facilities in
Fernandina Beach, presented a check in the
amount of $2,835 to Family Support Services
of North Florida.
Pam Hill, education specialist for Family
Support Services, attended a monthly meet-
ing of the Nassau County Foster/Adoptive
Parent Association with her co-worker, Shirley
Leggio, and had no idea she was about to get
very lucky. As members of the association
were updated on the Backpack Reading
Project, which Hill and Leggio co-manage, a
foster parent and employee of the Nassau
Terminals, Orlando Avila, casually mentioned
that his company, Kinder Morgan, had a foun-
dation which often supported local, non-prof-
it youth programs that focused on education,
the arts and the environment. As often said,
the rest is history.
When Pam returned to the office, first on
her agenda was to find and complete the
,-Kinder Morgan grant applicationi-.with which :
hardback books could be purchased so that
pre-K and kindergarten classes in Nassau
County could receive a copy for their room
and an additional one to be presented to the
school media center. It is with sincere thanks
that Family Support Services accepts the gen-
erous check of Kinder Morgan.

Middle class must refute the bill


During the run-up to the election candidate
Obama said again and again, "If you are a fami-
ly making less than $250,000 a year you will
not see your taxes go up. Not your income tax,
not your payroll tax, not your capital gains
taxes, not apy of your taxes." It was a catchy
statement. He was aiming it straight at the
middle class, the bulk of the voters at the only
time we really have any power, which is right
before an election.
President Obama then proposed a multi bil-
lion dollar bailout of banks and corporations
that were deemed too big to fail or too neces-
sary to bring the economy
back from the edge of col-
lapsing altogether.
This past Sunday, eight
months after inauguration,
.- ,. the Obama administration's
-.. a, Treasury Secietary Timothy
Geithner and National
Economic Council Director

Martha by saying that someone's

Randolph the plaie.
Carr Apparently that someone
is still the middle class and
small business owner.
There has got to be some way for the mid-
dle class to come together and refute the bill
without having tb wait for another election
cycle and a pile of promises from a new group
of candidates.
We need to figure out how to become too
big to ignore instead of just writhing in frustra-
tion as the larger corporations use tax loop-
holes to avoid taxes and threats about collapse
to avoid failure. All of it sounds more like taxa-
tion without representation.
It speaks to our optimism as Americans
that we can go through election cycles listen-
ing to candidates make promises that are later
broken and still believe the next guy that
comes along.
History seems to dictate that if the candi-
date is young, relatively good looking and well-
spoken we'll lap up the platitudes even more

and start repeating them as our own. Well
even make posters splashing the pithy sayings
across the bottom.
But then reality comes around and the
promise we hung our hopes on gets caught in
the back of the politician's throat with the
usual explanations pouring out instead. The
ones about a tough time or economic realities
or that something has to be done.
Granted, the economic collapse occurred
after all of the promises to not raise taxes
and America was staring down a Great
Recession, which we fell into to varying
degrees. Things happened that were so large
they couldn't be foretold or factored into the
promises.
However, it's not a solution to finally get-
ting better health care for the middle class by
telling us to pay for it. If we could do that in
greater numbers, we would be doing it


already. We promise, cross our hearts, that
we're not holding out
And it's not what we elected the agents of
change and hope for when they decided to bail
out everyone else and leave the middle class
way behind. It's one thing to take on our share
of the responsibility, which we've always done
Whether it was fighting the wars or rebuilding
the economy.
It's quite another to expect the masses who
get up every day and go to work without any
promise of a golden parachute or stock
options or even decent health care to rescue
everyone else.
This is the Obama administration's chance
to live up to all of the cool posters that just say,
"Change" and fulfill the promise. Raising taxes
on the middle class is an obvious idea but it's
not a solution anymore. Think again.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Swine flu scare
We, as parents, want our children to grow
up in an environment that produces opportuni-
ties for them to learn to be knowledgeable, cre-
ative, respectful to others and life. I guess you
could say good old-fashioned moral values. The
Lamb school in Fernandina Beach has certain-
ly been a beacon of light in a world, country,
county of turmoil.
We were first introduced to the Lamb
Christian school almost two years ago when my
husband and I decided to enroll our son into
their daycare program. This decision was not
an easy one for either my husband or me. I
thought I would never place my son in the care
of another person, let alone a school at the young
age of two years old. But I also realized the value
of him learning to interact with other children
and living at the beach did not offer the chance
to become socially active. I then started to do my
research along with asking any parent with a
young child. What was the best daycare pro-
gram on the island?
Time and time again the Lamb school pro-
gram would receive favorable comments.
I will never forget walking through the front
door of Lamb school for the first time with my
son in hand. I immediately felt a warm, friendly,
kind and caring atmosphere in the building.
I was also impressed with the security of the
building along with the administration office
location right next to the front door. This allows
the administrative staff to monitor everybody
coming and going.
Now two years later, our son is very excited
and getting ready to attend the VPK program at
Lamb school.
This brings me to the reason for writing. A
case of swine flu has been discovered at Lamb
school ("Swine flu at daycare center," Aug. 5).
When I was notified by the school, I immedi-
ately went into shock and fear like any caring
mother would have done. We, as parents, want
the best for our children, and good health is one
of those components.
I wasted no time and accepted the invitation
from the school administration to meet at the
school and be briefed by the school staff and


meet a representative of the Health Department.
Once again I came away with a respect for the
school and the presence of a good Christian
foundation to be morally honest, compassion-
ate and an appreciation of others.
The school has taken every step humanly
possible to stop the spread of the virus and con-
tinues to seek assistance and advice from the
medical community along with the Health
Department.
I can assure you writing this letter has not
calmed my nerves as a parent with a young child
living in an area that has been identified with a
case of the swine flu. I am just grateful for the
action taken by the Lamb school to try and pre-
vent an outbreak.
I.would be remiss if I did not mention my
disappointment in Nassau County's inability to
fully alert and inform schools and daycare cen-
ters on the swine flu potential.
Please, let's keep in our thoughts and prayers
with the children and adults who have fallen vic-
tim to the swine flu.

Health care 'monsters'
My friend is angry. He's a hard-working, self-
employed fellow, drawing a six-figure salary. He
pays over $800 monthly for health insurance.
Added to that is long-term care insurance for
himself and his wife, car and homeowners etc.
Because of taxes and insurance premiums, he
can't retire until he becomes eligible for
Medicare. He has worked exceptionally hard all
his life and saved carefully for early retirement.
Why hasn't a network been formed where
all self-employed individuals can buy into health
care insurance, covering this high pool of con-
sumers, thereby "spreading the risk over a broad-
.er population," reducing premiums?
I don't blame my friend for being angry.
However, I do not think it fair that people like my
six-figure salaried friend are receiving top of the
line, five-star medical treatment while nearly 50
million Americans have no health coverage.
Some people are dying because of this. Some peo-
ple do not go to the doctor because they can't


afford to. They earn too little to buy coverage but
too much for Medicaid. These folks end up sick
in the ER. As Linda Spencer pointed out (in
Voice of the People) last week, when the unin-
sured go to the ER for treatment, they do so on
the taxpayers' dollar or at the expense of us who
are insured. This system is crazy. The U.S. health
care system is a disaster and the, reason is greed!
Shelly Anderson, an independent insurance
agent, said in his viewpoint (July 31) that "Home
and auto insurance are not nationalized and it
works." I do not agree with him. Car insurance
is too expensive and is full of loopholes favoring
insurance companies. Home insurance premiums
are too high and have many pitfalls for home-
owners. Flood insurance seems reasonable, but
that is a government program. Another good
government insurance is the FDIC that protects
the money in our bank accounts. Where would
we be without it? Where would us retired folks
be without Medicare? Mr. Anderson rightfully
states that Medicare and Medicaid programs
need fixing, but he is wrong for not pointing out
that there are monsters in America's "health
care, closet" and those monsters have names.
Greedy insurance companies and greedy phar-
maceutical companies.
Finally, some people are calling these mon-
sters out of the closet and trying to force them
to do the right things for all Americans, rich and
poor. Wealthy people need to have premiums
lowered and pre-existing conditions covered,
middle-class folks need more choices and lower
co-pays and poor people need insurance. All
Americans are suffering because of the profit
in health care insurance and prescription drugs.
I wish to ask readers who think government
should not regulate industry: How can you still
believe that? Our current economic crisis was'
caused by deregulation and greed. The day has
come where we all must put partisan politics
aside and replace it with goodwill and open-
minded common sense.

First place
I would like to express my congratss" to


sports writer Beth Jones.on her recent first-place
award from the Florida Press Association. Her
story "Grappling with the guys" was beautifully
written, and although I might be somewhat
"biased" (the article is about my daughter Lilly)
the association proved that they felt the same!
Beth is a hard-working, "in your face" sports
journalist - she is seen at all the events around
Nassau Cotinty, taking pictures, writing down
scores, interviewing coaches and players!
Beth, you rightfully deserve "first place"
recognition, and I know that many people here
on Amelia Island and the county "applaud" and
feel the same about you!

The time is now to pass strong clean energy
jobs legislation that will jump-start our economy
and lay the groundwork for America to be com-
petitive in the 21st century. The combined eco-
nomic and climate crises require urgent action,
and Americans continue to support President
Obama's campaign vision for a clean energy
future. As a recent New York Times editorial
argued, "The older, dirtiest (coal) plants ... sim-
ply cannot be let off the hook." The Senate must
close damaging loopholes in the energy bill.

Kudos to Joyce Jones, along with Gwen,
Vernita and Katey, for hosting the "Biggest July
Birthday Party Ever." This event was held at
the Woman's Club on the island. It was well
planned, organized, tasteful and, most of all,
Miles Jaye & the Fusion Band entertained excep-
tionally well. Special thanks to Officer Josh
Paetsch for ensuring that every aspect of this
event was fully secured. To the city of Fernandina
Beach, events of this sort are needed more in the
community. The crowd was very diverse, and we
did the electric slide very well together.

OFFICIAL U.S. NAVY PHOTO BY MCSN LEX WENBERG
Aviation Ordnanceman Herbert Babin, 21, inspects the 20mm machine gun for an F/A-18C Hornet
strike fighter aboard the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, currently in the Persian Gulf in support
of U.S. and coalition forces in Afghanistan.



Serving your country:



'It's a family thing'


RYAN SMITH
News Leader
In the middle of the Persian Gulf, a floating city bus-
tles with activity. Thousands of men and women work
round the clock to support U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
Among them is a graduate of Fernandina Beach High
School.
"I moved (to Fernandina Beach) back in '93," said
Navy Airman Herbert Babin, the son of Herbert J. and the
late Maria Babin. "I joined back at the end of 2006. It
pretty much follows in my family. My dad's prior military,
my grandfather's prior military, my brother-in-law's mil-
itary. It's a family thing."
The 21-year-old aviation ordnanceman is one of 4,500
people stationed on the USS Ronald Reagan, an aircraft car-
rier currently deployed to the Persian Gulf.
"The USS Ronald Reagan is the newest carrier in the
Pacific Fleet. We are a massive warship, 1,092 feet long,"
said Lt. Commander Ron Flanders, the carrier's public
information officer. "We weigh 97,000 tons. Our flight
deck is 4 1/2 acres of U.S. sovereign territory. We have
the most modern maritime airwing in the world, over 60
aircraft.... We are launching dozens of these aircraft a day
to support the folks on the ground in Afghanistan."
As an aviation ordnanceman, Babin is responsible for
keeping those aircraft in fighting condition.
"We load different kinds of bombs and missiles. We
load bullets into the machine guns that the FA-18 (air-
plane) carries," Babin said. "We troubleshoot the jet to
make sure the bombs and missiles are reading correct-
ly, to make sure that when the pilots go off on their mis-
sions they won't have any problems if they have to drop
the bombs or fire the missiles - but that's pretty much a
last-resort thing.
"If the boots on the ground call up and say some-


'It's not something that you want just
any 21-year-old to do. You need someone
responsible. You need someone
intelligent and thorough.'
LT. COMMANDER RON FLANDERS
USS RONALD REAGAN
thing's wrong, they'll call us up and say, 'We're having a
problem in such-and-such area,' and the pilots will go up
and take care of it."
"Airman Babin's job is critical to that support," Flanders
said. "They're really depending on him to make sure the
machine guns on that aircraft are working, that the ord-
nance is properly placed and working. In a way, their
lives could literally depend on how well he does his job.
... It's not something that you want just any 21-year-old to
do. You need someone responsible. You need someone
intelligent and thorough."
Babin, currently on his second deployment aboard
the USS Ronald Reagan, said his time in the Navy has been
rewarding.
"I'm enjoying it. It's always different, every day. No
day's the same," he said. "You work with a lot of good peo-
ple. I'm learning things and going places I never thought
I would. I guess you could say I'm having a pretty good
time."
The ship itself also continues to impress him. "I remem-
ber the first time I did a deployment on the Ronald
Reagan," he said. "Walking up and seeing the ship was
amazing. It's ridiculous that this big ship can float.... You

City adjusts tax



up as property



values decline


ANGELA DAUGHTRY
News Leader
Fernandina Beach Commissioners
have adopted a tentative property tax
rate increase to make up for declining
property values in the city. Only city
commissioner Jeffrey Bunch support-
ed keeping the rate at its current lower
level.
The new rate would allow the same
property tax revenue to be collected in
2009-10 as this year, and had to be
raised because of declining property
values, according to City Finance
Director Patti Clifford. The proposed
rate can be lowered during upcoming
public hearings, but it cannot go any
higher.
A tentative millage rate of 4.4855
was adopted by commissioners at their
Tuesday meeting, up from 4.2209 last

Nassau County Commissioners will
discuss Wednesday whether to renew
a lobbyist's $75,000 a year contract.
"He's done a lot," commission Chair
Barry Holloway said, crediting attor-
ney Buddy Jacobs with a $60 million
project to widen A1A near Callahan.
Jacobs has a contract with the coun-
ty through Sept. 30. He's also paid
$75,000 a year by the city, and that
contract continues for another year.
City Manager Michael Czymbor
has credited Jacobs for luring a $1 mil-
lion federal contract to improve the
city's airport.
Holloway discounted the notion
that federal stimulus money - the
American Recovery and Reinvestment
Act was proposed by President Obama
and approved by Congress earlier this
year - was coming anyway.
The AlA project, for example, has
been a priority "for years, but there's
never been any money. A lot of these
projects have been on the books for


year.
The rate com-
prises an ad valorem
(property tax) roll-
back rate of 4.240
mills and a debt serv-
ice rate of 0.2435
mills. The voter-
approved debt is
Bunch $473,030, said
Clifford. The rollback
rate would bring in
the same amount of revenue as the
previous year.
The county also levies property
taxes on municipal homeowners, but
the county commission is not sched-
uled to consider its tentative village
rate until its regular meeting Monday
at 6 p.m. at the James S. Page

years, but there's
never been any
money. The contacts
p . that Buddy had not
only at the
.Washington level,
but at the state level,
S got us that money,"
Holloway said.
Jacobs "I could not have
gone to Tallahassee
and gotten that
money. I don't have the contacts that
Mr. Jacobs had. I feel very, very con-
fident that he was instrumental in get-
ting us that money.
"I just have confidence in Mr.
Jacobs'law firm, that they can accom-
plish what we need to accomplish not
only at the federal level, but at the
state level," Holloway said. "... Without
that contact for our county, I don't
believe we would have gotten what
we got. Would we have gotten some of
it? Probably - but I don't know how
much."

What does a cow in Chicago have in
common with a shrimp in Fernandina
Beach?
Both creatures are part of fundrais-
ing efforts benefiting community char-
ities. Artists such as Peter Max and
LeRoy Neiman took part in the cow-
painting fundraisers in Chicago, along
with Dublin rock band Radiohead.
As for the shrimp, this familiar crea-
ture is at the center of a new fundrais-
ing effort by Micah's Place, Nassau
County's domestic violence shelter.
Titled "Shrimp Expression," the
project will have area merchants spon-
soring one of 20 fiberglass shrimp
sculptures on which local artists will
unleash their creativity in January.
Sponsors may select their shrimp
design from pre-approved designs, or
they may commission a local artist to
paint it. Sponsorship of a Shrimp
Expression icon doesn't include per-


sponsors will receive benefits including
name recognition on the sculpture,
website recognition, official publica-
tions and VIP tickets to the gala auc-
tion.
Acallt,,;, ii � .iill be announced in
the coming weeks. Interested artists
and citizens will be able to submit
designs for consideration. The Shrimp
Expression Art Review Committee will
review all submissions and approve
those that best represent the scope of
the project and conform to the guide-
lines in the Artist Agreement.
Approved designs will become part of
a portfolio for selection by prospective
sponsors. If a sponsor chooses an
artist's design, an honorarium of $500
will be paid to the artist upon comple-
tion, delivery and acceptance of the
sculpture.
Approximately four feet high, the
fiberglass shrimp weighs in at 60
pounds and will be affixed to a wood-
en base once it has been painted.


played at sponsoring businesses from
May through September 2010. They
will be sold to the highest bidders at a
gala auction in October 2010.
Executive Director Shandra Riffey
explained to those gathered for the
project launch, the financial crisis has
caused an increase in the number of
women being abused by their part-
ners, which in turn has increased the
need for shelters like Micah's Place.
"Because of the economic climate,
we were looking outside the box; we
were looking at doing some cutting-
edge fundraising."
Once the Micah's Place Auxiliary
came up with the idea to do a project
similar to the highly successful Cows
on Parade in Chicago, they called on
the talents of Bonnie Upright at
Upright Public Relations in Orange
Park to help them get the word out.

Vaccines vital to community's health


JENNETT WILSON-BAKER
Executive Director, CREED

Vaccines prevent disease in the people
who receive them and protect those who
come into contact with unvaccinated indi-
viduals.
Newborn babies are immune to many
diseases because they have antibodies
they got from their mothers. However,
the duration of this immunity may last
only a month to about a year. However,
young children do not have maternal
immunity against some vaccine-preventa-
ble diseases, such as whooping cough.
If a child is not vaccinated and is
exposed to a disease germ, the child's
body may not be strong enough to fight
the disease. Before vaccines, many chil-

Special election


set to replace


late Sen. King


News Leader

A special election is sched-
uled this fall to replace state
Sen. Jim King, a Jacksonville
Republican who died of cancer
last month.
Former state Rep. Aaron
Bean of Fernandina Beach is
among four candidates who
had previously expressed
interest in replacing King
when his term ended next
year because of legally man-
dated term limits. Bean, in
fact, had opened a campaign
account aiming for a 2010 elec-
tion.
Now, the candidates will
vie in a special primary elec-
tion Sept. 15 and special gen-
eral election Oct. 6 to replace
the late senator. Gov. Charlie
Crist set the dates for the elec-
tion Wednesday.
Candidates have until 5
p.m. Aug. 17 to submit peti-
tions to qualify for the elec-
tion.
King's widow, Linda, said
Wednesday she would not be
a candidate.

ored and humbled to have

Which is not to say the job

sometimes more," Babin said.
"When you go to eat there's a
line. Pretty much everywhere
you go there's a line.
"Being up on the flight
deck for hours upon hours is
pretty crazy," he added. "It
gets pretty hot - about 130
degrees sometimes. You're
constantly sweating, and con-
stantly drinking lots and lots of
water to make sure your body
doesn't shut down."

said Upright. "Raise funding
for prevention and interven-
tion services of Micah's Place;
create awareness for domes-
tic violence prevention; sup-
port local artists and their
endeavors; and support
tourism initiatives."
"We looked at this particu-
lar project because of two
things, first of all the fact that
we are so blessed with a
colony of incredibly talented
artists. We also wanted to take
the time to celebrate the indus-
try that Fernandina Beach is
so connected with," said Riffey.
Those assembled for the
project launch at Brett's
Waterway Cafe Tuesday
watched as the model shrimp
was delivered aboard The
Madame Butterfly, captained
by David Cook, and unveiled
by one of the founding moth-
ers of Micah's Place, Iris
Nicholson.
"I think it's going to be an
exciting event for the commu-
nity," said Nicholson. "I hope it
raises awareness of domestic
violence and the need to sup-
port Micah's Place."

about the issues he cared so

"Jim and I came in to this

er."
In addition to Bean, candi-
dates who previously have
expressed interest in the seat
are former House Speaker
John Thrasher, Jacksonville
City Councilman Art Graham
and Jacksonville businessman
Dan Quiggle.
There are two state sena-
tors and one member of the
state House of Representatives
whose districts include
Nassau County. State Sen.

him to step down, are the oth-

like that. But once you bang
your head once, you adapt

But all in all, Babin said the
experience of serving aboard
the carrier was worth the
inconveniences.
"The experience of seeing

hose lines, firefighters
encountered extensive heat
and flames inside the front
door, according to Hanes.
The home sustained heavy
smoke, heat and water dam-


age. According to Hanes, 14
firefighters worked 20 min-
utes to get the fire under con-
trol.
The owners, Jon and
Jennifer Lasserre, were not
home at the time, but a
babysitter and an infant made
it out safely.
A dog and cat that were on
the second floor of the house
died in the fire.
The origin of the fire was
determined to be in the north-
west bedroom. The house,
said Hanes, was a total loss
with heavy damage. No other
injuries were reported.
Hanes said heavy winds
from the storm also brought
down power lines all over the
city, and several fences and
tree limbs were blown down.
There was some minor flood-
ing, he said, which made it
difficult for firefighters to
respond to calls.

Coast Guard defends U.S. for 219 years


The U.S. Coast Guard is this
nation's oldest maritime agency
of the U.S. Armed Forces and
on Tuesday celebrated its 219th
birthday.
Today's Coast Guard is an
amalgamation of five former fed-
eral services: Revenue Cutter
Service, Lighthouse Service,
Steamship Inspection Service,
Bureau of Navigation and
Lifesaving Service. In early
days, each agency operated
independently with overlapping
responsibilities, was often shuf-
fled from one end of the gov-
ernment to the other and
received constant name
changes along the way.
A historical timeline shows
in 1790 Congress authorized
the creation of a maritime serv-
ice to enforce customs laws.
Vessels were assigned to ensure
tariffs were paid, contraband
intercepted and ships protected
from piracy. In 1831 the fleet
conducted its first search and
rescue mission.
In 1915 the "Act to Create
the Coast Guard" was passed
combining the Life-Saving Ser-
vice and Revenue Cutter Ser-
vice. 1932 saw the Steamboat
Inspection Service and Bureau
of Navigation merge into the
Bureau of Navigation and
Steamboat Inspection. By 1936
that agency was reorganized
and renamed the Bureau of
Marine Inspection and Naviga-
tion. Then in 1939 Lighthouse
Services was transferred to the
Coast Guard (CG) empowering
it to discharge all the adminis-
trative duties relative to light-
houses and navigational aids.
In 1942 responsibility of mer-
chant marine licensing and ves-
sel safety under the Bureau of
Marine Inspection and Navi-


gation fell to
the CG. Fre-
quent com-
m a n d
authority
changes
passed back
and forth
between the
Navy De-
VETERAN'S apartment
CORNER and the De-
partment of
Commerce.
Debbie Finally, in
Walsh 1967 all
realigned
components were placed under
the operational control of the
CG with command authority
resting with the newly formed
Department of Transportation.
In March 2003 command once
again transferred the CG to the
newly created Department of
Homeland Security.
The Coast Guard's present
core mission includes search
and rescue, environmental pro-
tection and response, maritime
law enforcement, inspection and
licensing, aids to navigation,
waterway management, boat-
ing safety, marine science, ice
operations, port safety and secu-
rity, homeland security and
defense operations.
In addition to its everyday
peacetime mission, the CG sup-
plements the Navy during times
of war and conflict when opera-
tional control of the agency
shifts to the Department of the
Navy. The CG has been mili-
tarily involved in every war the
U.S. has fought from the Civil
War to the current war in Iraq.
On Sept. 11, 2001, USCG
units were among the first mil-
itary units to respond to the
aftermath of attacks on U.S. soil.


They provided the initial secu-
rity and assistance to those in
need with particular emphasis
for protection of our nation's
coastline, ports and waterways.
In November 2001 in response
to continued threats, U.S. Navy
coastal warships on patrol were
assigned to Operation Nobel
Eagle and for the first time in
history naval ships were em-
ployed jointly under CG com-
mand.
In early 2003 USCG units
deployed in support of Opera-
tion Iraqi Freedom and at the
height of early operations
included the employment of
1,250 CG active duty and
Reserve personnel.
The infamous myth, "Red
sky at night, sailor's delight; red
sky in the morning, sailors take
warning" brings out the best in
our CG assets. While many
seek coverage ashore there will
be some who choose to defy
the angry violence of the sea.
When good fortune is not in
their favor our heroic rescuers
will readily respond. Over the
years, search and rescue mis-
sions have become one of the
Coast Guard's primary opera-
tional focuses.
Non-fictional movies like
"The Perfect Storm" with actor
George Clooney portrayed the
Coast Guard's real-life rescue
efforts on behalf of the Andrea
Gail, a fishing boat based out
of Gloucester, Mass. Sadly, their
final fate was listed as "lost at
sea" some 575 miles off the
coast. The movie was based on
a book written by Sebastian
Junger which also covered the
rescue by USCG Cutter
Tamaroa of the sailboat crew

Though it is the smallest of the five branches
of the military, it is no less important than
its counterparts.


Satori in the Atlantic waters and
another rescue effort of a
downed CG helicopter who
themselves were also caught in
the same storm. Surviving that
crash were Maj. David Ruvola,
Capt. Graham Buschor, SSgt.
Jimmy Mioli and TSgt. John
Spillane. Crewmember and
pararescue jumper TSgt. Rick
Smith was listed as lost at sea.
In 2004 during Hurricane
Katrina records indicate Coast
Guardsmen were on hand to
rescue over 27,000 people from
rooftops and flooded neighbor-
hoods. They also assisted in the
evacuation of an additional 9,500
patients and medical personnel
from stricken hospitals and
nursing homes.
Then in 2006 another Holly-
wood movie brought renewed
fame to the efforts of the CG.
"The Guardian" with Kevin
Costner and Ashton Kutcher
portrayed the extensive train-
ing and mission insights of CG
rescue swimmers. This box
office hit brought public aware-
ness to this special breed of man
known as the "Coastie."
As recently as July 2009 the
media drew public attention and
well deserved headline news in
its coverage of the CG Cutter
Harriet Lane. While deployed
to the Caribbean the Harriet
Lane disrupted several high-


speed vessel operations, includ-
ing one drug-related interdic-
tion mission that netted a cash
seizure of $8.5 million, one of
the largest in CG and Joint
Interagency Task Force South
history.
It's regrettable that on each
Aug. 4th very little fanfare is
made of this significant anniver-
sary involving one of our pres-
tigious branches of the armed
forces. Though it is the smallest
of the five branches of the mili-
tary, it is no less important than
its counterparts the Army, Navy,
Marine Corps and Air Force.
Each branch, though assigned
unique responsibilities, is chal-
lenged to cohesively interface
with one another to ensure our
goals for the defense of the
United States are achieved.
Though this auspicious
anniversary has passed it's not
too late to applaud this excep-
tional group of men and women
who choose to serve with pride
and dignity in the United States
Coast Guard in defending the
well being of all citizens of the
United States. Happy Anniver-
sary Team Coast Guard!

Inducing hypothermia aids cardiac patients

JASON YURGARTIS
New Leader IIllll


Nassau County Fire Rescue
personnel will soon be dealing
with an increased number of
hypothermia cases among car-
diac arrest patients.
Hypothermia, a medical
emergency that occurs when
your body loses heat faster than
it can produce heat, causing a
dangerously low body temper-
ature, is normally of little con-
cern to anyone in a typically
tepid climate such as Florida's.
However, in recent years,
some Florida hospitals have
been dealing with a spike in
hypothermia. And it's all
because medical professionals
have been purposely inducing it
in patients. Soon, county emer-
gency personnel will be doing
the same.
While this might sound
counterintuitive, it's part of a
protocol some hospitals are
implementing that developed
from a revisiting of research
from the 1950's, and it's gaining
steam worldwide.
Shands Jacksonville, a des-
tination for many cardiac arrest
patients in Nassau County, has
had a therapeutic hypothermia
protocol since 2006. And doc-
tors from the hospital were on
hand recently to train Nassau
County Fire Rescue personnel
how to properly induce
hypothermia in transit. They
purport that by doing so in the
field, brain functions impaired
by lack of oxygen during car-
diac arrest will be better pro-
tected, and patients will have a
greater chance of survival.
"By (inducing therapeutic
hypothermia), one in seven car-


As a result of this treatment, Nassau County
should see a 40 percent increase in survival
statistics for cardiac arrest patients.'
DR. ANDREW LIM


diac arrest patients can walk
out of the hospital with mini-
mal or no deficit in terms of
brain cell loss," said Dr. Joseph
Sabato, assistant professor in
the Department of Emergency
Medicine at UF and Shands in
Jacksonville.
Sabato said the procedure
involves administering a 4
degree Celsius cold saline IV
and placing ice packs on the
body of the patient. The idea is
to drop the body's core tem-
perature by 1 degree Celsius
per hour, he said, a process that
continues at the hospital.
According to statistics given
during a training presentation
by Sabato and Dr. Andrew Lim
and Dr. Zach Dembitsky, both
third-year emergency medicine
residents under his direction,
there were 85 cases of cardiac
arrest in Nassau County last
year, of which eight patients
experienced the return of spon-
taneous circulation.
They said of 300,000 cardiac
arrest patients in the U.S. last
year, there was an estimated
survival rate of 3-5 percent. But
Lim said inducing hypothermia
in the field could save one out
of every seven patients who
would normally die.
Additionally, for every six
patients that would have been
in a coma, one will walk away


with a good neurological out-
come as a result of the treat-
ment.
"As a result of this treat-
ment, Nassau County should
see a 40 percent increase in sur-
vival statistics for cardiac arrest
patients," Lim said.
Beyond the presentation by
the doctors and related written
tests, Nassau County Fire
Rescue paramedics received
field training in the back of one
of their trucks courtesy of the
SIMM, a patient simulator.
Essentially a highly
advanced and electronically
equipped mannequin, the sim-
ulator is connected to a laptop
computer where training per-
sonnel can input medical symp-
toms and scenarios to the man-
nequin, which has a responsive
pulse and body temperature
and can even speak to trainees.
The SIMM was purchased
through a Department of
Health Emergency Medical
Services grant, said county Fire
Inspector and Public
Information Officer Frank
Elkins. He said the Nassau
County Commission approved
the grant in an effort to pro-
vide advanced medical training
for those dealing with cardiac
arrest and other medical emer-
gencies.
"The classroom and hands-

on training with the fully com-
puterized human patient simu-
lator mannequin in the back of
the rescue unit provides our
paramedics with 'real life'
assessments in a controlled set-
ting," said Nassau County


Assistant Fire Chief Sam
Young. "NCFR is involved with
advanced medical training to
provide the best possible care
for our citizens in the pre-hos-
pital setting."
Young said the protocol to
induce therapeutic hypother-


mia in cardiac arrest patients
will be in full effect as soon as
coolers for the cold saline IV
bags arrive and a few rescue
workers who were on vacation
complete training, likely in less
than two weeks.

Generosity
You may find the largest independent ter-
minal operator in North America and a non-
profit agency which provides services for
abused and neglected children to be an unlike-
ly combination, however that is exactly what
happened recently when Kinder Morgan,
which operates the port facilities in
Fernandina Beach, presented a check in the
amount of $2,835 to Family Support Services
of North Florida.
Pam Hill, education specialist for Family
Support Services, attended a monthly meet-
ing of the Nassau County Foster/Adoptive
Parent Association with her co-worker, Shirley
Leggio, and had no idea she was about to get
very lucky. As members of the association
were updated on the Backpack Reading
Project, which Hill and Leggio co-manage, a
foster parent and employee of the Nassau
Terminals, Orlando Avila, casually mentioned
that his company, Kinder Morgan, had a foun-
dation which often supported local, non-prof-
it youth programs that focused on education,
the arts and the environment. As often said,
the rest is history.
When Pam returned to the office, first on
her agenda was to find and complete the
Kinder Morgan grant application, with which
hardback books could be purchased so that
pre-K and kindergarten classes in Nassau
County could receive a copy for their room
and an additional one to be presented to the
school media center. It is with sincere thanks
that Family Support Services accepts the gen-
erous check of Kinder Morgan.

Who's going to pay for health care?


This week some of President Obama's
top lieutenants, including Treasury
Secretary Timothy Geithner, have
countered the president's earlier
promise not to raise taxes on middle-class
Americans to support his nationalized health
care proposal. Is this yet another case of publi-
cizing policy without having all of the input
required from some of the nation's leading
advisers and supposed experts?
While the White House has pressed back,
reiterating their position that middle-class
Americans would not bear the burden of their
overly ambitious plan, it is hard to figure out
the disconnect between the political opera-
tions of the administration versus those who
are tasked with actually developing and imple-
menting the policies related to our nation's
economic well-being. If a middle-class tax hike
is off the table, it seems key policy makers
missed the memo. This is not just inexcusably
sloppy - it's dangerous.
As the nation continues to fight its way out
of economic calamity, President Obama contin-
ues to insist on immediate passage of his hulk-
ing healthcare proposal. As a country, we're
not even sure if we want the plan, certainly
can't afford it, and yet the Obama administra-
tion demands action this calendar year, as
though genuine debate and solid policy were
made while running about as though on fire.
And this stubbornness holds beyond all
odds - even as we know the federal govern-


ment does not have the
funds or a solidified plan for
how to fund yet another soon-
to-be bloated government
program.
Certainly the administra-
tion recognizes that federal
tax revenues are already
down a historic 18 percent in
2009 - an astonishing
MA(ING decrease that the Associated
SENSE Press calculates as the
largest single-year decline
since (you guessed it) the
Michael Great Depression. So what is
Reagan their proposed solution to a
struggling economy, insuffi-
cient funds to meet our current obligations
including two wars and talk of additional gov-
ernment bailouts, and a deficit that is starting
to near $2 trillion, you ask?
Spend more! And when the spending
excesses and escalating deficit turns even the
most liberal of stomachs, well, that's when
even the president's own treasury secretary
recognizes the only way to proceed is to raise
taxes on the middle class!
And on the political front, you may as
well think of this new program as the fourth
rail of American politics. If you thought that
u.-.. _ i..li..i,- of changes to Social Security
were met with scorn, imagine how difficult it
will be for future generations of fiscally


responsible candidates to run on platforms of
government sanity in spending when the
majority of Americans rely solely on the gov-
ernment for life-and-death healthcare deci-
sions and our private insurance industry is
shattered.
Our current system has its problems, but
we have the freedom to solve those, carefully.
If we rush towards President Obama's bloated
plan, the seemingly necessary resulting tax
hikes may very well cause greater damage to
our already fragile economy. Furthermore,
we'll be forever tying ourselves to an ineffi-
cient, unstable system which will drain our
wallets and smother quality health care in this
country.
Secretary Geithner's ....- . .i...i of tax
increases, the president's backtrack, the con-
flicting noise coming from Congress, the
hyped urgency - all of this only serves to
demonstrate just how chaotic, and downright
lost, this administration's approach to policy
making continues to be. It's time for President
Obama to get off the campaign trail and begin
the hard work of governing with tangible,
understandable solutions made in the full light
of reality. I only wish I was more convinced he
was up to the challenge.

President Ronald Reagan, is chairman and

Middle class must refute the bill


During the run-up to the election candidate
Obama said again and again, "If you are a fami-
ly making less than $250,000 a year you will
not see your taxes go up. Not your income tax,
not your payroll tax, not your capital gains
taxes, not any of your taxes." It was a catchy
statement. He was aiming it straight at the
middle class, the bulk of the voters at the only
time we really have any power, which is right
before an election.
President Obama then proposed a multi bil-
lion dollar bailout of banks and corporations
that were deemed too big to fail or too neces-
sary to bring the economy
back from the edge of col-
lapsing altogether.
This past Sunday, eight
months after inauguration,
-- the Obama administration's
Treasury Secretary Timothy
Geithner and National
Economic Council Director
Lawrence Summers started
MORE laying the groundwork for
ADVENTURES the middle class to foot the
bill for not only the deficit but
proposed health care reform
Martha by saying that someone's
going to have to step up to
Randolph the plate.
Carr Apparently that someone
is still the middle class and
small business owner.
There has got to be some way for the mid-
dle class to come together and refute the bill
without having to wait for another election
cycle and a pile of promises from a new group
of candidates.
We need to figure out how to become too
big to ignore instead of just writhing in frustra-
tion as the larger corporations use tax loop-
holes to avoid taxes and threats about collapse
to avoid failure. All of it sounds more like taxa-
tion without representation.
It speaks to our optimism as Americans
that we can go through election cycles listen-
ing to candidates make promises that are later
broken and still believe the next guy that
comes along.
History seems to dictate that if the candi-
date is young, relatively good looking and well-
spoken we'll lap up the platitudes even more

and start repeating them as our own. We'll
even make posters splashing the pithy sayings
across the bottom.
But then reality comes around and the
promise we hung our hopes on gets caught in
the back of the politician's throat with the
usual explanations pouring out instead. The
ones about a tough time or economic realities
or that something has to be done.
Granted, the economic collapse occurred
after all of the promises to not raise taxes
and America was staring down a Great
Recession, which we fell into to varying
degrees. Things happened that were so large
they couldn't be foretold or factored into the
promises.
However, it's not a solution to finally get-
ting better health care for the middle class by
telling us to pay for it. If we could do that in
greater numbers, we would be doing it


already. We promise, cross our hearts, that
we're not holding out.
And it's not what we elected the agents of
change and hope for when they decided to bail
out everyone else and leave the middle class
way behind. It's one thing to take on our share
of the responsibility, which we've always done
whether it was fighting the wars or rebuilding
the economy.
It's quite another to expect the masses who
get up every day and go to work without any
promise of a golden parachute or stock
options or even decent health care to rescue
everyone else.
This is the Obama administration's chance
to live up to all of the cool posters that just say,
"Change" and fulfill the promise. Raising taxes
on the middle class is an obvious idea but it's
not a solution anymore. Think again.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE


Swine flu scare
We, as parents, want our children to grow
up in an environment that produces opportuni-
ties for them to learn to be knowledgeable, cre-
ative, respectful to others and life. I guess you
could say good old-fashioned moral values. The
Lamb school in Fernandina Beach has certain-
ly been a beacon of light in a world, country,
county of turmoil.
We were first introduced to the Lamb
Christian school almost two years ago when my
husband and I decided to enroll our son into
their daycare program. This decision was not
an easy one for either my husband or me. I
thought I would never place my son in the care
of another person, let alone a school at the young
age of two years old. But I also realized the value
of him learning to interact with other children
and living at the beach did not offer the chance
to become socially active. I then started to do my
research along with asking any parent with a
young child. What was the best daycare pro-
gram on the island?
Time and time again the Lamb school pro-
gram would receive favorable comments.
I will never forget walking through the front
door of Lamb school for the first time with my
son in hand. I immediately felt a warm, friendly,
kind and caring atmosphere in the building.
I was also impressed with the security of the
building along with the administration office
location right next to the front door. This allows
the administrative staff to monitor everybody
coming and going.
Now two years later, our son is very excited
and getting ready to attend the VPK program at
Lamb school.
This brings me to the reason for writing. A
case of swine flu has been discovered at Lamb
school ("Swine flu at daycare center," Aug. 5).
When I was notified by the school, I immedi-
ately went into shock and fear like any caring
mother would have done. We, as parents, want
the best for our children, and good health is one
of those components.
I wasted no time and accepted the invitation
from the school administration to meet at the
school and be briefed by the school staff and


meet a representative of the Health Department.
Once again I came away with a respect for the
school and the presence of a good Christian
foundation to be morally honest, compassion-
ate and an appreciation of others.
The school has taken every step humanly
possible to stop the spread of the virus and con-
tinues to seek assistance and advice from the
medical community along with the Health
Department.
I can assure you writing this letter has not
calmed my nerves as a parent with young child
living in an area that has been identified with a
case of the swine flu. I am just grateful for the
action taken by the Lamb school to try and pre-
vent an outbreak.
I would be remiss if I did not mention my
disappointment in Nassau County's inability to
fully alert and inform schools and daycare cen-
ters on the swine flu potential.
Please, let's keep in our thoughts and prayers
with the children and adults who have fallen vic-
tim to the swine flu.

Health care'monsters'
My friend is angry. He's a hard-working, self-
employed fellow, drawing a six-figure salary. He
pays over $800 monthly for health insurance.
Added to that is long-term care insurance for
himself and his wife, car and homeowners etc.
Because of taxes and insurance premiums, he
can't retire until he becomes eligible for
Medicare. He has worked exceptionally hard all
his life and saved carefully for early retirement.
Why hasn't a network been formed where
all self-employed individuals can buy into health
care insurance, covering this high pool of con-
sumers, thereby "spreading the risk over a broad-
er population," reducing premiums?
I don't blame my friend for being angry.
However, I do not think it fair that people like my
six-figure salaried friend are receiving top of the
line, five-star medical treatment while nearly 50
million Americans have no health coverage.
Some people are dying because of this. Some peo-
ple do not go to the doctor because they can't


afford to. They earn too little to buy coverage but
too much for Medicaid. These folks end up sick
in the ER. As Linda Spencer pointed out (in
Voice of the People) last week, when the unin-
sured go to the ER for treatment, they do so on
the taxpayers' dollar or at the expense of us who
are insured. This system is crazy. The U.S. health
care system is a disaster and the reason is greed!
Shelly Anderson, an independent insurance
agent, said in his viewpoint (July 31) that "Home
and auto insurance are not nationalized and it
works." I do not agree with him. Car insurance
is too expensive and is full of loopholes favoring
insurance companies. Home insurance premiums
are too high and have many pitfalls for home-
owners. Flood insurance seems reasonable, but
that is a government program. Another good
government insurance is the FDIC that protects
the money in our bank accounts. Where would
we be without it? Where would us retired folks
be without Medicare? Mr. Anderson rightfully
states that Medicare and Medicaid programs
need fixing, but he is wrong for not pointing out
that there are monsters in America's "health
care closet" and those monsters have names.
Greedy insurance companies and greedy phar-
maceutical companies.
Finally, some people are calling these mon-
sters out of the closet and trying to force them
to do the right things for all Americans, rich and
poor. Wealthy people need to have premiums
lowered and pre-existing conditions covered,
middle-class folks need more choices and lower
co-pays and poor people need insurance. All
Americans are suffering because of the profit
in health care insurance and prescription drugs.
I wish to ask readers who think government
should not regulate industry: How can you still
believe that? Our current economic crisis was
caused by deregulation and greed. The day has
come where we all must put partisan politics
aside and replace it with goodwill and open-
minded common sense.

First place
I would like to express my congratss" to


sports writer Beth Jones on her recent first-place
award from the Florida Press Association. Her
story "Grappling with the guys" was beautifully
written, and although I might be somewhat
"biased" (the article is about my daughter Lilly)
the association proved that they felt the same!
Beth is a hard-working, "in your face" sports
journalist - she is seen at all the events around
Nassau County, taking pictures, writing down
scores, interviewing coaches and players!
Beth, you rightfully deserve "first place"
recognition, and I know that many people here
on Amelia Island and the county "applaud" and
feel the same about you!

Clean energy
The time is now to pass strong clean energy
jobs legislation that will jump-start our economy
and lay the groundwork for America to be com-
petitive in the 21st century. The combined eco-
nomic and climate crises require urgent action,
and Americans continue to support President
Obama's campaign vision for a clean energy
future. As a recent New York Times editorial
argued, "The older, dirtiest (coal) plants ... sim-
ply cannot be let off the hook." The Senate must
close damaging loopholes in the energy bill.

Whata party
Kudos to Joyce Jones, along with Gwen,
Vernita and Katey, for hosting the I :. .. ,i July
Birthday Party Ever." This event was held at
the Woman's Club on the island. It was well
planned, organized, tasteful and, most of all,
Miles Jaye & the Fusion Band entertained excep-
tionally well. Special thanks to Officer Josh
Paetsch for ensuring that every aspect of this
event was fully secured. To the city of Fernandina
Beach, events of this sort are needed more in the
community. The crowd was very diverse, and we
did the electric slide very well together.

Elm Street banquet 'off the chain'


Investments are made often, but the
greatest investment is in our chil-
dren. Letting them know how much
we want them to be successful, it
has to begin with us, the parents, at
home, and spread to the community.
How do you describe the Elm Street
Little League sports banquet? Awesome,
really, or as the kids would say - off
the chain. A standing room-only crowd
of family and friends was at the Martin
Luther King Center, celebrating the end
of a good season.
Some of our city and county officials
were present and took an active part in
the banquet celebration. Former mayor
and founder of the Elm Street Little
League, Charles Albert, introduced his
son, Reginald Albert, our emcee. Also
there was Joe Gerrity, former mayor
and commissioner, who led the Little
League pledge, as well as introduced
our speaker. County Commissioner
Danny Leeper gave our welcome.
Harvest Outreach Ministries choir,
where the Rev. Dr. James Smith serves
as pastor, along with his wife, Sis. Tina
Smith, sang to the glory and honor of
God, ki. j. .:; ' We're reaping the har-
vest God gave to us."
With all the former things out of the
way, our speaker came forth with a mes-
sage our children could and did under-
stand. He also thanked our leaders and
parents for coming out. It is very impor-
tant to our children to have them
involved. He spoke on their level, want-
ing to make sure they understood.
Learning is a lifetime process to be
good at anything you do. As he spoke to
them, he asked them to remember so
they could repeat to him what he said
and they did. They can do anything they
want to do; there is no limit. I can do
anything, you can do anything and we
can do anything. One day you may want
a new car, house or money; to do that,
you've got to stay in school, stay away
from drugs, stay away from violence.
They repeated that back to him.
He told them, "Now it's gonna get a
little sticky."
To be successful, they need to decide


what they want to do.
He gave four Ps for
them to remember: (1)
have a plan, decide
them and what you want to be;
To(2) prepare to imple-
ment your plan, that
means making As and
Bs; (3) perseverance:
don't stop working,
NOW AND hang in there; (4)
THEN prayer: never forget
the power of prayer,
always remember to
Maybelle pray. It's not about
Kirkland remembering these
things, it's about doing
them and you can be successful. They
were able to repeat all of them back to
him, one at a time.
To the parents, remember to be dedi-
cated, be their buddy, but be a parent
first. You are the parents, not the child.
Encourage them and be a resource to
them, because one of these young men
or women could easily be the president
one day.
President Wayne Peterson, Charles
Albert, Joe Gerrity and Danny Leeper
presented plaques to Sheriff Nat Glover
and Reggie Albert for continuous com-
munity support and to Elm Street
sports.
Each team member received tro-
phies and lots of things in their bags
from the many sponsors of the league.
There are more than 27 sponsors and
the league continues to grow.
Teams included the Giants (Tyrone
Rhode, coach), T-ball Reds (Wayne
William, coach; Warren Grant, manager,
team mother, Angie Sanders), T-Ball
Rexs (Harry Hill, coach; Trelly
Coverdell, manager), Major Reds (Troy
Way, coach; Robin Raysor, manager),
Hawks (Robbie Jones, coach; Terrance
Roberts and Javon Owens, managers).
Wayne Peterson has been with Elm
Street Little League more than 16 years.
Even though he has no children in the
league, he enjoys his involvement. It's
not about him, it's about our children in
the communities. He needs more


involvement from you, the parents, from
beginning to end, and not just on ban-
quet or award day.
Yes, there was a packed house for
the banquet. You, the parents, family
and friends need to be there from open-
ing day through the banquet. Stop let-
ting the league babysit your children,
then you show up, the proud people at
the banquet. Where else could you have
gotten a banquet as Elm Street Little
League had for free? Think of how
much it could have been if the parents
and family and friends had paid $10
each. However, we know it's not about
the dollars; it's about our children. That
meal alone was worth it. Let's move for-
ward, the year is 2009.
Wayne Peterson says, 'Thanks for
another great season. Especially grate-
ful to the sponsors and community lead-
ers who always come out and support
the Little League's milestones. The
coaches, managers and other volunteers
are invaluable."
He also says, "Continue to teach,
motivate and encourage our youth to be
the very best they can be. Parents, get
more involved in your children's activi-
ties. The more involved parents are, the
more successful your children will be in
every area of their lives. And many
thanks to Sheriff Nathaniel "Nat" Glover
for providing words of wisdom to our
youth. He is a true example of hard
work. Reginald Albert said, "It has been
an extreme honor to have been the
emcee. To the parents, thank you, and
hope to see you next season."
Please mark your calendars for
grandparents day, Sept. 13, at the Peck
Center. Time will be given later. Make
plans to attend.

Feeding families in need through Angel Food Ministries


HEATHER A. PERRY
News Leader


Local director for Angel Food
Ministries, Thomas Kessler, said mem-
bers of the Fernandina Beach Church
of Christ had it in their hearts to help
members of the community in a very
real way.
"As families struggle to make ends
meet, they decided Angel Food
Ministries may be away for those fam-
ilies to be helped. So earlier this year,
they contacted the headquarters to
apply for the ability to become a host
site."
Angel Food Ministries was begun
in Georgia in 1994 by Pastor Joe
Wingo and his wife, Linda, as a way to
provide food for those in financial
straits. More than 500,000 families are

financial straits.


assisted nationwide through the organ-
ization, which has helped more than
100 people locally since March.
Interested people may order from
a menu that includes a variety of fresh,
frozen and packaged foods. Available
items include steak, chicken or beef as
well as staples including vegetables,
milk and eggs. Boxed choices include


seafood boxes, gluten-free boxes and
vegetable boxes. Seniors may pur-
chase a box of 10 pre-made meals at a
very reasonable cost.
Kessler said orders and distribu-
tion are handled by the church.
"Orders are collected by the host
sites during the first part of each
month ... and turned in to the Angel
Food main office in Monroe, Ga.
Several days later, in the same month,
the host site either picks up the food
from Angel Food's 160,000-square-foot
warehouse or food is delivered to the
host site by a pre-arranged delivery
mode."
Anyone may order from Angel
Food Ministries. There are no qualifi-
cations. Payments may be made using
cash, debit card, credit card, money
order or food stamps. Most boxes


would cost $45 to $65 if purchased in
a grocery store. Prices begin at $21
when ordered through the church.
The Fernandina Beach Church of
Christ host site will begin accepting
orders for the August distribution date
on Aug. 13, 14 and 15. Online orders
may be placed until Aug. 16.
Distribution day is Aug. 22 from 9:30
a.m. till noon.


Flyers are located at many loca-
tions around Fernandina Beach includ-
ing the Council on Aging, Family
Services building, Moon River Pizza,
the 24-hour Laundromat, Barnabas
Center, Peck Center and Hope House.

FUN

BY CHRIS DEVITTO
Palatka Daily News
PALATKA- Stranded trucks, sheriffs deputies and muddy
people might be found on one of Putnam County's dirt roads
after a heavy rain.
But on the last weekend of each month, it's not only normal,
people revel in it.
The Hogwaller Mud Bog on County Road
310, about 15 miles southwest of Palatka,
is 100 acres of pure joy for people who like .
horsepower and mud.
"I like to come out here to sling mud,
burn fuel and hang out with the boys," said
Ocala resident Vito Constantio over the
roar of high performance motors.
Near the back of a 4-acre, fenced-off mud
pit, three high performance and high clear- - -
ance mud bogging trucks, including ,.
Constantino's, were lined up waiting for . t
another run.
"We all work on the trucks together," he ', '
said. "I've been doing this probably since
I've been driving, just not this big."
One of Hogwaller's owners, businessman
and ex-county commissioner Skeet Alford,
said he came up with the idea after the
county passed an ordinance restricting mud
bogging about two years ago.
The mud bog is located on more than 100 acres and includes a
4-acre mud pit with parking and 80 acres of four-wheeler trials.
Another 500 acres of trails have been added and will be open
on Aug. 8 and 9 for ATV and UTV use only.
Admission is $15 for Saturday and $10 Sunday. Overnight
stays cost $15 per day.
Shayne Hoffman, a Fort McCoy resident, said he and his
family come to the bog every month.
"I bring my kids, girlfriend, my mom and dad and we all have
a good time," he said. "I've had a blast with it, it's good clean
fun."
Interlachen resident Cody Fadler said he comes to run his
truck and six four-wheelers.
"I come out because it's fun and we get dirty. It's better than
Disney World," he said.

Team Fernandina Stingrays one point shy of top 10


The Team Fernandina
Stingrays concluded their sea-
son just one point out of a top
10 finish at the River City
Swim League Championships
July 23-26. Placing 11th out of
20 teams is a record for the
Stingrays, who compete
against 20 teams in one of the
largest swim leagues in the
U.S. with more than 1,600 par-
ticipating swimmers.
The Stingrays' tent was full
of smiling faces and heat rib-
bon winners throughout the
weekend as many swimmers
achieved personal best times
as well as team records.
Coach Valerie Priest coor-
dinated the scheduling of the
event and worked hard to
ensure every swimmer also
participated in a relay event
- a daunting scheduling feat.
"I am greatly honored to
work with such a great group
of kids who continually strive
to better themselves," said
Priest, when asked about the
team.
And it is all because of the


swimmers' and the coaches'
dedication that the Stingrays
did indeed better their entire
team this season.
There were 254 swimmers
at the six-and-under champi-
onships and 1,342 at the "big
champs." Spartan Aquatic
Club won the event with
2,732.5 points and the
Stingrays finished 11th with
637.

CDC expects rise influ cases this fall, winter around the US.


attended a summer
YMCA camp in the
Georgia mountains
about a month ago. On the fifth
night of the camp, we were called to
come pick her up because she had
"the flu."
Once we arrived, my wife
Paulette spoke with the nursing
supervisor of the clinic, who worked
full-time with the Centers for
Disease Control in Atlanta. She
informed us that during the prior
week, the camp had sent home 155
of the 300 campers with "the flu" and
this was most likely the H1N1 virus,
or swine flu.
Some of the kids during the early
sessions had been tested with con-
firmed cases. My daughter was par-
ticipating in the fifth session of the
camp and we were told every week
the number of cases had been
increasing. Some campers stayed
over from one week to the next,
depending on what they had signed
up for, and this is what allowed pas-
sage of the virus between camping
sessions.
She then told us that, unfortu-
nately, this was just the beginning of


what the CDC was
going to see in the
coming months
and into the fall
-uin ^ with the return of
kids to elementary
schools and college
campuses across
the country. This
also would suggest
a surge in hospital
SPORTS admissions for
those with weak-
MEDICINE ened immune sys-
GREGORY teams, such as the
elderly.
SMITH, M.D. I spoke with Dr.
Eugenia Ngo-
Seidel, director of
the Nassau County Health
Department, who said, "We know
there is going to be a surge of cases
in the fall and winter. We are expect-
ing it and we want people to expect
it so that they don't become
alarmed."
Interestingly, my son, who was in
close contact with my daughter after
she came home from camp, never
showed any signs of illness.
Currently federal officials are
finalizing swine flu guidelines that


would scale back when officials
would recommend closing affected
schools. Initially the recommenda-
tion was that schools shut down at
the first sign of the H1N1 virus.
They have since relaxed that advice,
advising that closures occur only
under "extenuating circumstances,"
such as if a campus has many chil-
dren with underlying medical condi-
tions. The H1N1 virus does not
appear to be more lethal than sea-
sonal flu, but it may be more infec-
tious and is expected to hit young,
healthy people and schools especial-
ly hard.
We were told there was no need
to test Peyton for the H1N1 virus,
because, even with a confirmation,
there would be no difference in
treatment. The CDC and the World
Heath Organization have even
reached the point where they have
seen so many cases of this, they
aren't even testing for it.
Peyton did get over her symp-
toms in about 10 days and is now
back to normal, but I will admit it
was a rough 10 days with fevers,
chills and a very bad cough.
Dr. Seidel did feel that Tamiflu,
which has been shown to shorten


the duration and severity of symp-
toms, should be considered for
those with pulmonary disease, preg-
nancy or chronic conditions and rec-
ommended you ask your doctor. We
were given the option of giving
Peyton Tamiflu, which we did, but
at an out-of-pocket cost of $125, this
may be cost prohibitive for many.
According to this month's British
medical journal Lancet, an average
of 36,000 Americans a year die of
seasonal flu and more than 200,000
are hospitalized, but most of them
are elderly or already ill. By con-
trast, most H1N1 cases involve peo-
ple younger than 18 and children are
more infectious than adults.
Although there have been deaths
associated with H1N1, the majority
of cases have involved those with
chronic illness.
Dr. Seidel said the vast majority
of cases have been mild. Protective
measures include staying home
when you are ill, washing your
hands and covering your cough.
Those affected have been urged to
stay out of the public sector until
they have been afebrile for 24 hours
while off any anti-fever medications.
Children who are affected should


not be given aspirin for reducing
fever because this may increase the
risk for Reyes syndrome
An H1N1 vaccine is anticipated in
October or November and may be
released in waves, at first available
only to individuals at particular risk,
such as those with chronic disease,
women who are pregnant and young
children. The regular seasonal flu
vaccine does not protect against
H1N1 and the standard recommen-
dations for infants, children and
those with chronic conditions still
apply.

King mackerel fishing teams from all
parts of Florida and Georgia will be
competing Saturday in the St. Marys
Kingfish Tournament. The captains'
meeting takes place at the St. Marys
Waterfront Park beginning at 5 p.m. Saturday
will see tournament kingfish boats running far
offshore and both north and south along the
beaches to find their favorite kingfish waters.
Weigh-in begins Saturday at 3 p.m. at the

will have the option of getting points for either
Florida Division V or Georgia's Division IV for

Kingfish teams will have to work super
hard to find tournament-grade kingfish
Saturday as recent reports of major king
mackerel migrations have been poor. The best
kingfish action, however, has been reported
from Ponce Inlet, which is a super long run by
water.
Grouper, red snapper and cobia continue to
highlight the offshore fishing scene, particu-
larly at some of the nearshore fish havens,
including FA, FC, RL and Schultz's Fish
Market. Some of the best catches are coming
while anchoring up over a rock ledge and fish-
ing on the high side of ledge, also called the
up-current side of the ledge, and fishing dead
on the bottom with live cigar minnows, pinfish,
grunts, menhaden or finger mullet.
Sea trout, flounder and redfish are running
at the south end of Amelia Island, particularly

enlighten society, elected officials and the media

millions of unwanted dogs and cats each year in
the nation's shelters. It has since grown into an
international event. For more information, visit

go back, I like it here,"
Smudge tells his band mates.
"Maybe if we didn't finish the
show, we could just pick up

Frankie snaps back.
"We didn't even rate a
