Private firm to manage city marina

News Leader
A private firm will take over man-
agement later this year, heralding a
new day for the controversial city mari-
na that has lagged financially for years.
Fernandina Beach Commissioners
voted 4-1 at a special meeting Monday
to negotiate a contract with Westrec
Marine to manage the city marina.
Commissioner Jeffrey Bunch voted
against going forward with negotia-

tions, and some local charter captains
voiced concerns over the impending
A city marina committee chose
Westrec out of five marina manage-
ment firms that responded to the city's
request for qualifications.
After presentations Monday by
committee vice chair Dave Lott and a
representative of Westrec, commis-
sioners agreed to accept the recom-
mendation, assuming approval of a
more detailed contract before the com-

pany takes over operations.
Two charter boat operators voiced
concerns about the public marina
being taken over by a private company.
Wanda Hair, who owns a charter oper-
ation with her husband, Steve, said a
number of captains are looking into
forming an official charter boat asso-
ciation, and said that many captains
had been "forced out of business"
because of the economy and accom-
panying increases in regulations and
licensing fees.

Hair said "allowing a private busi-
ness (to run the marina) is a travesty
... this is where our local boats con-
duct their business."
"With any privatization there are
no guarantees for slips," Hair went on.
"This could cause even more hardship
... I refuse to go the way of the shrimp
boats. Our fleet has dwindled down to
a handful of captains."
Allen Mills of AC Charters was not
as pessimistic as Hair. "It's time for
new ideas downtown," Mills said. "I

think we need something different.
We need to make a gem out of the
"You hold a lot of the future for us,"
Mills said. "Please realize you can't
afford (to charge) $15 a foot (per boat.)
Drop it to $12 or $10 a foot and fill all
the slips." Mills also expressed hope
that an empty kiosk on the waterfront
could be used for a charter associa-
tion office.

Public Utilities (FPU) has filed a pur-
chased power cost adjustment with
the Florida Public Service Commission
(FPSC) that would increase bills in
Purchased power cost increases
will take effect Jan. 1, resulting in a
total increase for residential electric
service of 1.4 percent.
The electric bill for a residential
customer using 1,000 kwh per month
will increase from $129.99 to $131.83,
not including taxes and franchise fees.
FPU does not generate power and
purchases energy wholesale from JEA.
By state regulation, purchased power
costs are directly passed through to
customers without any mark-up. FPU
does not earn a profit on this portion
of customers' electric bills. FPU's base
customer charge remains unchanged.
"In today's economy, we recognize
that any increase, no matter how slight,
will have an impact on our customers,"
said Mark Cutshaw, general manager
of FPU's Northeast Division, in a press

with our customers to address the
impact of these costs as best as possi-

Debate flared Monday between
Fernandina Beach and Nassau County
commissioners over cost sharing for a
beach renovation project in the city.
Last year the Nassau County Shore
Protection Project widened and
restored 3.8 miles of beach from Fort
Clinch State Park to south of Sadler
Road at Seaside Park. The federal gov-
ernment picked up about 79 percent of
the project's $15 million price tag. The
Florida Department of Environmental
Protection paid 10 percent, and the
remaining 11 percent was shared by
Fernandina Beach and Nassau County.
A portion of that 11 percent was at

State won't enforce rules

as dock solution sought

News Leader
The state Department of Environmental Protection
has agreed to suspend penalties until June for non-com-
pliant docks in an aquatic preserve in the Lofton Creek
area in the hope that a legislative fix can be achieved in
the 2010 session.
State Rep. Janet Adkins presented a loose outline of
potential solutions Monday night to a standing-room-only
crowd at the Betty P. Cook Nassau Center in Yulee.
I'.... , ... . .1.u, might include - and let me empha-
size might - variances or waivers, rule amendments,
going through joint administrative procedures, an envi-
ronmental regulation commission, amended permits,
easements and the possibility of a bill or local bill," she
The community forum, hosted by Adkins, included
panel members Sen. Steve Wise, county officials and
state DEP employees, who were on hand to answer
questions, allay concerns and discuss a possible solution
for those found in violation of DEP regulations.

The town-hall-style event was the result of a recent
evaluation by the DEP that found 99 out of 110 docks in
the Lofton Creek area to be out of compliance with
state-mandated aquatic preserve requirements. The
compliance sweep stemmed from a series of resident
complaints to the DEP dating back to September 2008,
and culminated with a March request that all docks in
the area be inspected.
Adkins kicked off the night by reiterating what many
in the audience already knew. '"There is various criteria
for construction of single-family docks, and I will tell you,
it is incredibly, incredibly confusing," she said. "One
thing that we have heard over and over again since
February is that most homeowners, county officials,
real estate agents and even title insurance companies
were unaware that their property was within an aquat-
ic preserve."
Residents of Lofton Creek and others on hand had
a wide range of questions, from how property values will
be affected by the DEP's findings to whether the unique

Open or closed, the West Nassau
Landfill will cost money. Closure, how-
ever, will save money in the long run,
according to County Coordinator Ed
But county residents can expect to
pay a couple of dollars more a month
once the landfill is closed next week.
Myron Thomas, general manager
of Stateline Disposal in Fernandina
Beach, said his company is trying to
keep the extra charges as low as pos-
"There will be a price increase..
We're basically looking at $1.75 per
month, plus fuel surcharge, which is
$1.91," he said. "It's basically bare-
bones. We're hoping it makes us
whole. We know the economic times
we're in and have been doing every-
thing we can to negotiate landfill rates.
We've been pretty successful with that
figure. It was much less than I thought
it was going to be.
"Basically if you're living in the city
this won't really affect you because
that rate is negotiated by the city," he
added. "People out in the county with
once-a-week pickup, they're really the
ones this will affect."
Thomas said the move of Nassau's
trash to a Georgia landfill has meant
extra expense for his company as well.
"We're going to add an additional
three trucks to move the volume,
because the weight limitations change
when you cross state lines," he said.
"That's been our biggest hurdle."
"The original estimated closure
costs were somewhere in the area of

Best protectors from bullies? Girls

University of Florida

GAINESVILLE - Playground bullies
may meet their match from where they
least expect - in the ranks of kids who are
anti-bullies - and most of them are girls, a
University of Florida study finds.
"Boys may be more likely to bully, but
girls are more likely to defend those
being bullied," said Jim Porter, who did
the research for his doctoral dissertation
in counselor education at UE "While a lot
of attention has been devoted to bully pre-
vention programs, very little recognition
is given to kids who jump in and try to
stop the bullying or comfort the victim."
These playground defenders merit
attention because research shows that a
majority of school shootings are commit-
ted by students who have been bullied,
and victims of bullying are at risk for
dropping out of school, suffering from
depression and bullying others, Porter
said. Thirty percent of students in sixth-
through 10th-grade report some experi-
ence with bullying, either as a victim or
perpetrator, he said.
Schools overlook good Samaritans as
they are putting a growing number of
bully prevention programs in place, in
some cases relying on peer mediation
where students resolve the disputes

themselves, with
mixed results, Porter
a "What is missing
in these programs is
they don't incorporate
children who are
already known to help
victims," he said. "Understanding kids
who defend against bullying may reveal a
new avenue toward preventing school-
related violence."
Porter surveyed 168 females and 101
males about how they believed their
mother, father, best friends and favorite
teachers would expect them to respond if
they encountered a student being bullied.
The offensive behavior included hitting,
shoving, name-calling, teasing and ostra-
cizing. Participants attended four middle
schools in North Central Florida and
were between the ages of 10 and 15.
Peer pressure can be a good thing, the
study found. Students said teachers and
parents were more likely than best
friends to expect them to try to stop a
bully, but they were more likely to actual-
ly intervene if the message came from a
best friend. And more girls than boys
reported feeling pressure from friends to
come to a victim's aid, Porter said.
Eighty-five percent of girls surveyed

said their best friend would expect them
to defend or help a bullying victim, com-
pared with only 66 percent of boys,
Porter said.
Being female or having more feminine
traits as measured by a gender identity
scale also increased the likelihood that a
student would defend a bully, the survey
findings showed.
"Gender stereotypes that girls are
more nurturing and boys are more
aggressive definitely play out in how we
expect boys and girls to behave," he said.
"Somehow we communicate these expec-
tations to kids and it can affect their
Porter said he has always been inter-
ested in the subject of bullying because
he was often beat up as a "new kid" mov-
ing from one community to another. "I
never understood but always wanted to
discover why some students were able to
jump in and help others," he said.
Focusing on defenders illustrates dra-
matic changes in public attitudes, he said.
'There was a time when bullying was
not researched because it was considered
normal childhood behavior," he said. "It
was thought of as being part of growing
up, this learning to determine a pecking
order, and making people stronger and
weeding out the weak."

Leeper said he couldn't find
any documentation that said
the county had been consult-

"My point is ... it's a bene-

Czymbor said. "The beach is
not the city's beach, it's all of
our beach."
"My concern is that there
appears to have been an after-
the-fact agreement without
consulting the county," Leeper
said. "... I can't find anywhere
that we're obligated for 50 per-
cent of this oversight. If we
are, I'm all for it."

County Commission Chair
Barry Holloway pointed out
that the city does, in fact, mon-
itor only city beaches. "You
only monitor to Sadler Road
now," he said.
"I'm not against cost shar-
ing," Leeper said. "... I just
think if we're going to be
asked to cost share we ought
to be consulted."
The county commission
unanimously agreed to the
refund reduction. There was
still dissent, however, on the
monitoring costs.
"Once again, it seems like
we're being asked to pay 50
percent when it's benefiting
the city and not the county,"
Leeper said.
"If I may, it's a county
beach, not just a city beach,"
city Commissioner Ken
Walker said. "It's in the coun-
ty as well. People from the
county use it too. ... If there
were some procedural
inequities, I apologize, but we
need to move forward."
But Holloway said the
issue of monitoring payments
would have to be brought up
at the county's final budget
hearing Monday.
"I agree that it's a county
beach as well as a city
beach ... but for us to act on
this tonight may not be pru-
dent," he said.

said Wednesday. "We pretty

able for it at this point in time.
You have to set aside money.
It's a (Department of Environ-

that you have to set aside
money for closure, and the
county has been doing that for
a number of years.
"What (closure) is going to
do is it's going to eliminate the
very significant subsidy

ing for the tipping fee and the

cost of the operations had
ranged $2 million to $3 million
more than what was coming in.
That subsidy will go away and
that money can be used for
other purposes."
The landfill will stop accept-
ing waste on or about Thursday,
Sealover said.
"When we close, the first
thing that will have to happen
is the dirt will have to be
placed in areas where we don't
have 18 inches of cover," he

"We're not in the business

said he recognized the impor-

because they are good con-

the meeting that the privatiza-
tion would not affect the BigP,
or federal Boating Infrastruc-
ture Grant Program, which is
to cover $1.6 million of an esti-
mated $5.6 million in marina
improvement costs.
Langshaw said 60 percent
of boat slip space would still

as specified by the grant.
"Sixty percent transients
will make more money,"

Langshaw said Westrec

tively than the community ...
they understand the business."
Westrec of Encino, Calif.,
which opted for a management
rather than a lease option, was
founded in 1987 and is the
largest marina operator in the
United States, with seven mari-
nas in Florida.
Westrec's proposal sum-
mary for marina management
includes a five-year contract

The company's major
change to the marina would
be to renovate the dockhouse
to support a retail store with a
possible bike rental. The ren-
ovation would be funded
entirely by Westrec. The com-
pany also plans to share 50 per-
cent of the retail profit with the
city, an amount estimated at
$50,000 annually.
The company also plans to
charge the city 6 percent of
fuel, boat slip and mooring
incomes. It will bring all cur-
rent city employees into the
company, though there are no
permanent job guarantees.
Westrec will be responsi-
ble for marketing and public
relations to attract customers.
The proposal also recom-
mends a 10 percent increase in
slip rental fees.
With a management option,
all marina facilities remain the
property of the city and any
property improvements
remain off of city or county tax
rolls. The city also will contin-
ue to pay all operating expens-
es and is responsible for any
current marina debt, as well
as any future capital expendi-
tures, including dredging and
facility maintenance.
According to City Finance
Director Patti Clifford, the
marina carries an annual debt
of about $560,000, which is
included in the marina budget.
The marina's entire debt is
about $4 million, which was
borrowed for the city's share of

Ex-coach: Booster fund

was 'spent on the kids'

A former softball coach at
West Nassau High School has
denied doing anything illegal or
improprieties involving a private
boosters' bank account.
Candace Hicken conceded
that the private bank account
ran afoul of school policy. But
she said funds from the account
were used for the purpose of
paying referees, insurance, hotel
and food expenses for players
traveling to district or regional
"Any money was spent on
the kids, one way or another,

the county in recent years, trav-
eling repeatedly to compete for
state championships.
The Nassau County Sheriff's
Office is investigating whether
any of the funds in the account
were mishandled. There have
been no arrests.
Hicken acknowledged that
the Warriors Softball Boosters
account at Southeastern Bank
- accessible to her, her husband
Chris, also a teacher and coach
at West Nassau, and a school
groundskeeper - was not sub-
ject to school control. She

Persons interested may appear and be heard at the time and place

until contacted by the newspa-
per, and said school administra-
tors were aware of it. "They
knew the account was there,"
Hicken said. 'The checks are
saying what they're for."
Hicken said there was usu-
ally a three-day turnaround for
fund requests made from inter-
nal school accounts. In some
cases when the team was away
and it was time to eat, players
would have to order from the
menu ahead of time, making it

was about $3,000, Hicken said.
Hicken was told by Principal
Ron Booker last month that she
would no longer be head coach
of the girls softball team. "He
didn't give me a reason. He
called me two days before

The crowd erupted in
applause when one property
owner noted, "I understand
that the county has taxed
these properties based on the
size and value of the docks.....
The county has falsely taxed
these people and you should
be paying them back."
"That's a good point,"
Nassau County Property

Lofton Creek resident Erin
Kelly asked about the possi-
ble detrimental impact of tear-
ing down docks that are 20,
30 or 40 years old.
DEP Coastal and Aquatic
Reserve Manager Dr. Mike
Shirley said, "That is a very
good question and I assure
you that any solution has to
take into account the impact to
the environment relative to
that as well. It is the kind of
thing that's a very complicated
situation. There is a need to
look at individuals and cumu-
lative impacts, it's a very com-
plicated issue and we're just
starting to review the facts our-
selves right now."
Boater Damon Loop said
rough conditions on the water
needed to be taken into
account when determining
dock size, and that these
unique conditions might affect

safety for dock owners.
Scott Murray, a longtime
resident of Lofton Creek,
asked why there had been no
code enforcement of area
docks over the last 40 years.
"One of the duties and obli-
gations of public service (is) to
investigate public complaints,"
Greg Strong, DEP Northeast
District director, said. "I would
say we received numerous
complaints, somewhere in the
range of 30-50 (since last fall).
And so at that point we real-
ized we have a substantial
problem that we need to real-
ly get our arms around and
evaluate globally. Why that did-
n't happen over the last 30 to
40 years, your guess is as good
as mine."
The only dissent from the
crowd came when Michael
Leary of Chester brought the
public ownership of the aquat-
ic preserve to the forefront.
"Respectfully, the greater
part of your constituency is
the public that owns Lofton
Creek, not just the property
owners," he said. "I'm not
berating any of the property
owners and their predicament
and I'm sympathetic to it ....
"It's a pretty slippery slope
to excuse both the agency and
sort of grandfather in what's
taken place. And everybody
else that's on all the river
banks in this county due to
growth and development and
what have you, as you seem
to excuse a portion of this
activity, should also be
excused and should not have
to comply with any of it."

The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its preparation of a draft permit to the City of Fernandina Beach, John Mandrick, 1180 South 5th
Street, Fernandina Beach, Florida 32034, for the Fernandina Beach WWTE This permit authorizes the permitted to operate an existing 3.50 million gallons per
day (MGD) annual average daily flow (AADF) permitted capacity domestic wastewater treatment facility (WWTF) consisting of an influent treatment unit, efflu-
ent and sludge handling units, and two parallel treatment trains as follows: (1) a 2.50 MGD AADF permitted capacity oxidation ditch treatment train, and (2) a
1.00 MGD AADF permitted capacity contact stabilization treatment train. All of the raw wastewater from the influent pumping station is directed to a pretreat-
ment unit and a flow splitter box for separation to the two treatment trains. The oxidation ditch treatment train consists of an aeration basin anoxic basin, a
secondary clarifier, and a chlorine contact chamber. The contact stabilization treatment train consists of a contact tank, a return activated sludge stabilization
tank, a secondary clarifier, and a chlorine contact chamber. The flows from the two treatment trains are combined in an effluent gravity sewer and directed to
dechlorination equipment and a Parshall flume for flow measurement. The treated effluent is then discharged to the Amelia River. Waste activated sludge is
treated in two aerobic digesters that operate in series. Treated residuals are dewatered with a rotary press and then hauled to Camden County Landfill for dis-
posal. This permit also authorizes the removal of the contact stabilization treatment train from service, conversion of the stabilization tank into a third digester,
and construction and operation a new 2.50 MGD AADF design capacity oxidation ditch treatment train. The facility is located at latitude 30� 39'32.68" N, lon-
gitude 810 27'50.66"W on 1007 South 5th Street, Fernandina Beach, Florida 32034-4011, in Nassau County.

request for a public meeting must contain the information set forth below and must be received in the Department's Northeast District Office within 30 days of
publication of this notice. Failure to submit comments or request a public meeting within this time period shall constitute a waiver of any right such person
may have to submit comments or request a public meeting under rule 62-620.555, Florida Administrative Code.

The comments or request for a public meeting must contain the following information:
(a) The commenter's name, address, and telephone number; the applicant's name and address; the Department permit file number; and the county in
which the project is proposed;
(b) A statement of how and when notice of the Department's action or proposed action was received;
(c) A statement of the facts the Department should consider in making the final decision;
(d) A statement of which rules or statutes require reversal or modification of the Department's action or proposed action; and
(e) If desired, a request that a public meeting be scheduled including a statement of the nature of the issues proposed to be raised at the meeting.

If a public meeting is scheduled, the public comment period is extended until the close of the public meeting. However, the Department may not always grant a
request for a public meeting. Therefore, written comments should be submitted within 30 days of publication of this notice, even if a public meeting is request-

If a public meeting is held, any person may submit oral or written statements and data at the public meeting on the Department's proposed action. As a result
of significant public comment, the Department's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this draft permit.

Corps. For a whole four days in
May 1918 it would be known as
the Division of Military Aero-
nautics, but changed to U.S.
Army Air Service on May 24,
1918. The Army Reorganization
Act of 1920 made the Air Ser-
vice a combat arm of the Army,
and the Air Corps Act of 1926
changed its name to the Air
Over the years, the branch
experienced significant changes
in its mission. In 1934, the Army
Air Corps took over delivery of
U.S. airmail operations, and in
1939 when the prototype XB-24
Liberator made a 17-minute
flight initiating from Lindbergh
Field in San Diego. This flight
set the precedent for President
Roosevelt to sign the National
Defense Act of 1940 authoriz-
ing a $300 million budget and
6,000 airplanes for the Army Air
Corps, increasing its personnel
to 3,203 officers and 45,000
enlisted troops. This act was
also responsible for more than
18,100 B-24s to be built in the
next five and a half years, the
largest military production run
in U.S. history.
Another name change
occurred in 1941 when the War
Department created the Army

Air Forces (AAF) and in the
same year the Civil Air Patrol
was established. The AAF re-
mained steadfast until the U.S.
Air Force won its independence
as a full partner with the Army
and the Navy on Sept. 18, 1947.
Aboard the presidential air-
craft, "the Sacred Cow,"
President Harry Truman sign-
ed the National Security Act of
1947 officially establishing the
U.S. Air Force as a separate
branch of the military. The act
required the Air Force to organ-
ize, train and equip for prompt
and sustained offensive and
defensive air operations. On
Oct. 14, 1947, history books
recorded Chuck Yeager's fly-
ing the Bell XS-1 past the speed
of sound, launching the Air
Force into the supersonic era.
The crest or Great Seal of
the Department of the Air Force
is symbolic. The crest's back-
ground color represents the
transition from Army green to
the new blue and gold colors of
the Air Force. There are 13
stars representing the original
colonies and the three stars at
the top portray the three
Departments of the National
Defense Establishment: Army,
Navy and Air Force. The crest
includes the American Bald

Eagle, symbolic of the United
States and its air striking power
while the cloud formation
depicts the creation of a new
kingdom, the wild blue yonder.
The eagle's head is turned to
the right and symbolizes facing
the enemy - looking toward the
future and not dwelling on past
deeds. The wreath is composed
of six alternating folds with a
shield divided by a curved line
representing clouds charged
with a mythological thunder-
bolt. The thunderbolt meets the
shield at a point of honor por-
traying the striking power of air
supremacy. It's known as
Jupiter's thunderbolt after the
Roman God of the Heavens. A
pair of wings and smaller light-
ning flashes surround the
bolt and the Roman numerals
indicate 1947, the year the Air
Force was established. The full
seal is encircled with the inscrip-
tion Department of the Air
Force and United States of

Dennis and his wife,
Angela, were returning to their
rented home Aug. 21 after tak-
ing their children, Bert Hutch-
inson, 9, and Abigail Bunch,
3, to watch boats launch for a
fishing tournament. Less than
half a mile from home, a vehi-
cle that had entered their lane
struck them head-on.
Upon impact, Bert was
ejected from his lap belt and
landed in his step-dad's lap.
Until the paramedics arrived,
Dennis used his shirt to
staunch the bleeding from
Bert's head. Once they were
on the scene, Bert began com-
plaining of leg pain.
Dennis sustained neck and
back injuries. His wife suffered
a broken sternum, torn knee
ligaments, nerve damage to
the neck and head, and eye

Mosquito Control,

budget control

The Amelia Island Mosquito Control
District's three-member board of
commissioners voted last week to
lower its tax rate.
The board unanimously voted to set a
millage rate of 0.1175, below the current
That's a 6.67 percent decrease in 2009-10
from the current budget of $566,000.
"We're a small piece of the millage rate
pie here, so to speak," Director M. Bruce
Hyers said. "But maybe we can help ease
the tax burden a little bit, and maybe other
taxing districts will see that and try to do
the same."
Hyers said excess revenue from previous
years will make up the difference in the
budget. "The levels of service aren't going
to change," he said.
Hyers added that Mosquito Control's
new administration building, into which the
organization moved Sept. 1, was also paid
for with cash accrued over the years.
"We've managed to build that and pay for
it, so that won't affect the budget either," he
said. "...It's been paid for with rolled-over
surplus that we've had. Over about 15 years,
we've accumulated funds to build it and pay
for it at no additional cost to the taxpayers."
Mosquito Control, which has served the
island since 1950, is a relatively small public
service, with a relatively small budget, but
we should acknowledge a local government
that took a relatively large step to take the
sting out of your property taxes.

In case you haven't heard about it, there is
a revolution going on.
Millions of Americans are standing up
to voice their support for limited govern-
ment, fiscal sanity, individual liberty, moral
leadership and personal responsibility. Most of
us are deeply concerned about the future of
America and what sort of life we are leaving for
future generations.
The national debt is nearing $12 trillion, and
those who are incurring it will not be around to
suffer the consequences of their actions. Your
children and grandchildren, and their children
and grandchildren, will be paying for this debt
in exorbitant taxes for many, many years to
The Tea Parties that have sprung up all
across America are a response of the people to
this irresponsible spending. We are not going
to allow the next several generations of
Americans to be enslaved to this debt. We are
calling for responsible, patriotic, common-
sense citizens to run for public office at all lev-
els to replace those who have caused this
Tea Parties are made up of military veter-
ans, grandmothers, mechanics, doctors, stu-
dents, black, white, Hispanic, Asian and citi-
zens from every sphere of life. We are from all

political parties, and no parties at all. We don't
support parties, but principles.
Most of us have never participated in a
protest of any kind - we've been too busy rais-
ing families and paying taxes! But now, we are
fed up with big government and its intrusion
into our lives, and we see the danger our
nation faces, and it is not from the terrorists,
but our own government! We are fired up
about returning America to its founding princi-
ples and values. All we want to do is preserve
the liberty that so many millions have fought
and died for over the past two and a quarter
Why do I call this an "underground" revolu-
tion if it is all in the open and visible? Because
established media outlets either don't report
on these events, underreport them or spin the

numbers to minimize them. There were recent-
ly 1.7 million Tea Partiers in Washington, D.C.,
on 9/12, and the media reported numbers
ranging from 70,000 to 200,000!
If you are alarmed at the tsunami of debt,
government programs, taxes, agencies, czars,
takeovers and bailouts, come join us. There is a

Healthy school lunches
Your article on healthy lunches
(Sept. 18) neglected to mention that
our elementary school children can
purchase potato chips and ice cream
from their banked lunch money
They are literally kids in a candy
store with pockets of money unless
we, the parents, play the bad guy
and send a note prohibiting them
from spending their "milk money"
on certain items. I find this absurd!
This junk food needs to be elimi-
nated from schools.
Michelle Bees
Fernandina Beach

Paying to play
I read the letter with interest
from the person upset that they
might have to pay something to use
the ball fields in the city. Each city
and county charges fees as they see
fit. Daytona Beach charges to drive
on their beaches, New Smyrna
Beach does not, and so on. Let's
look at Fernandina Beach:
Fernandina Beach charges to
use the public pools. According to
our writer, shouldn't this also be
free? They charge for use of the
marina; should this be free? The
city owns a golf course - free? The
list goes on. Somewhere the city
has to decide what they can subsi-
dize and what they can't. Best I can
tell none of the facilities I listed pays
for itself. That means those of us
that do not use these (and may
never use them - see "golf' for me)
are paying for those that do. Now I
cannot for the life on me figure out
where it is written that I need to
help pay for this stuff or move.
Ball fields cost a lot to keep up.
You have to fertilize, you have to
seed or sod. You have to water, rake,
add dirt, trim and thatch the fields.
You have to maintain the buildings,
lighting and bathrooms (and they
cost to build). You have to have
insurance against accidents. You
need to install and maintain fenc-
ing, bleachers, dugouts, benches
and backstops. You have to pay
someone to coordinate this stuff.
Then if you have games you need
cops for irate parents, an ambulance
for kiddies and such. Now I don't
know who supplies the bases, the
putting down of lines and yard
markers and who pays for a con-
cessions stand.
This all costs a bunch and main-
tenance is a year-long thing, not just
during the season. To ask those
who benefit to pay their fair part is

not unfair, it is just and right. I
already pay for kids to go to school
and don't mind that. I do mind pay-
ing for some kids and not for a
whole bunch of others. You want
your kids to play, you shouldn't

Bad taste
Why was it necessary to use
curse words in writing ("Gotta have
it'? 2010 calories, 131 grams fat, 153
grams sugar," Sept. 18)? This is a
family newspaper. I don't care how
prevalent foul language has
become, it doesn't belong in an arti-

The right to know
The constituents of Florida
Senate District 8 have the right to
know who conducted the recent
negative campaign against John
Thrasher and his family.

Each candidate for elected office
must file a financial disclosure form
listing all their supporters and the
amount or in-kind services that each
donation provides. However, spe-
cial interest groups can form com-
mittees or organizations, collect
funds and wage a negative cam-
paign without reporting or revealing
their donor names and amounts.
The purpose and the address of
these organizations are difficult to
obtain. The names of these organi-
zations include generic terms, such
as Stop Waste or Reduce
Government or Save Taxpayers.
The organizations are often based
outside the election area or even
the state.
The actual objective of such
groups is to cast one candidate in a
negative way to the voters. We have
to ask ourselves, why would a group
that we cannot get the names and
address of its directors, that is locat-
ed in South Florida, have an interest
in the Northeast Florida Senate
District 8 election? Or what is their
vested purpose in conducting a neg-
ative campaign against one candi-
date, but ignoring all other candi-
And the media under the free-
dom of information laws are unable
to penetrate the corporate veil and
identify the donors and amount of
funds involved. Something is wrong
with this picture. The people have a

right to know.
This raises another point. The
recent primary election cost the
Florida taxpayers an estimated
$800,000. Now the question to be
asked is why the governor appoint-
ed someone to complete U.S. Sen.
Mel Martinez's remaining term but
called for a special election to fill
the remainder of state Sen. Jim
King's term. In these tough eco-
nomic times, those funds could help
schools and libraries.

Undermining the abstinence message

through loud and clear to Christian
youth, but another message promot-
ed in many Christian churches is
undermining it.
Mixed messages bombard all young people
in America, putting them in difficult and con-
flicting situations, often leading to tears and
heartache. But no conflict is more insidious
than the conflict faced by Christian youth. On
the one hand, they are taught abstinence until
marriage, and in the next sentence some are
told they should wait until age 32 before get-
ting married. At least that is the advice our 14-
year-old daughter was given recently.
Young adults are taught they must meet
certain "requirements" before marrying.
They are told they should experience travel,
finish higher education, have some fun, own a
car and maybe even a house before marriage.
And don't forget the big, extravagant wedding;
they must save for it, all before marriage. No
wonder the urge for premarital sex often wins
A comment in a recent blog posting at
datingish.com captured the idea this way, "In
your early-mid 20s you are dramatically chang-
ing as a person. If you can go through all of
that and you and your partner still love each

other for who you are
then I think it's OKto
get married.... I'm a
firm believer that
waiting until you're
older to get married
is the best option if
you are looking for a
successful marriage."
We feel fortunate
The Browns we didn't face such
pressure. In our early
20s we had a modest
wedding at a local church followed by a recep-
tion with cake, nuts, mints and punch. After a
three-day honeymoon we started working.
Our first child came two years later.
The trend to marry older has increased
since 1970 by five years when the median age
for first marriage for women was 21 and 23 for
men, to 26 for women and 28 for men.
"Christians have made much ado about sex
but are becoming slow and lax about mar-
riage," which is more significant, says Mark
Regnerus, associate professor of sociology at
the University of Texas at Austin and the
author of Forbidden Fruit: Sex and Religion in
the Lives ofAmerican Teenagers. According to
Regnerus, "We are marrying later, if at all, and

having fewer children."
Regnerus points out several reasons for
this. "In societies like ours that exhibit lengthy
economic prosperity, men and women alike
begin to lose motivation to marry and have
children, and thus avoid one or both," he
However, "the institution of marriage
remains a foundational good for individuals
and communities. It is by far the optimal con-
text for child-rearing." Economically speaking,
he says, married people are wealthier, share
many expenses like housing, food and electric-
ity and are less likely to become dependent on
the government and indigent.
We aren't advocating teenagers marry but
there are certain advantages to early mar-
riage. Studies showing a correlation between
early marriage and divorce occur mostly
amongst those under age 20. For one thing,
medical research reveals that the safest and
prime childbearing years for both baby and
mother is when the mother is in her 20s. After
this, problems progressively increase for both
as the mother reaches her late 30s and 40s,
along with expensive fertility procedures.
Again, studies show that having a first child
before age 30 decreases a woman's odds of
breast cancer. Plus, a couple has much more

energy in their 20s to raise babies and small
children than when they later reach their 40s
and 50s.
Part of the problem is the delay of adult-
hood permeating our society. Getting married
encourages responsibility and maturity.
"Unfortunately, a key developmental institu-
tion for men - marriage - is the very thing
being postponed, thus perpetuating their ado-
lescence," says Regnerus.
Many friends and family are unwittingly
giving bad advice to young people when
encouraging them to postpone marriage. It
simply makes it much more difficult for young
people hoping to abstain from sex in their
prime years of sexual interest and fertility if
they now have the added pressure to marry in
their late 20s and beyond. With fewer than half
of all American households comprised of mar-
ried couples, an added burden is placed on
society and shifted off to mushrooming gov-
ernment programs.
If young adults in their early 20s find their
"special" someone, the natural and logical step
is marriage.

First Baptist homecoming Sept. 27

First Baptist Church will hold
homecoming Sept. 27. The
church's new location is 1600 S.
Eighth St., Fernandina Beach.
This year is even more special as we cel-
ebrate the 150th anniversary of First
Baptist Church. Mark you calendars
and save the date. It's going to be a
great celebration.
A moment in our church history by
Melba Whitaker: "In September of 1887,
the original little wooden church (built
in 1860) and all the records were com-
pletely destroyed by fire. The only thing
that survived was a beautiful silver com-
munion service given to us by the
Sabbath School of the First Baptist
Church of Jersey City, N.J., with the
date of June 1874 inscribed on one of
the pieces.
"We have no record of what prompt-
ed this lovely gift. The logic has been
that because a number of the union sol-
diers fell in love with our island and
came back after The War' to live, that
their home churches provided encour-
agement and support during those
struggling years. The service has been
beautifully restored and will be on dis-
play in the Leroy McKee Historical
Labor Day Sunday luncheon was

Sue Underwood reports: "Lamar and
I first joined Grace Groups through
Brother Jackie Hayes' Grace Group sev-
eral years ago. As this grew in numbers,
he encouraged us to multiply.
Thereafter, C.A. McDonald and his fami-
ly stepped out as Grace Group leaders
and invited us to join them. We were
ready to begin our own group. We
stepped out and asked two other cou-
ples to join us. We were never able to
coordinate our schedules and ultimately
one couple moved away and the other
couple dropped out. We were slightly
discouraged but assumed it was not in
God's timing.
"We met a couple who were new to
our church. We became very good
friends and then tried again to start a
Grace Group. We met several times with
just the four of us and prayed for
growth. The Henderson Family came
into our group and our numbers tripled.
"Our group has changed complex-
ions a number of times - people mov-
ing in and out. Our group has now
grown to five families who meet regular-

On July 11, 13 members of First
Baptist Church, Callahan, traveled to
Worcester, Mass., to work with Noel and
Shelley Williamson at Pleasant Street
Baptist conducting a weeklong Kids
Klub (Vacation Bible School). The team
also did construction projects, street
evangelism and worked in the Baby
Boutique (a ministry that provides
infant needs to families not able to
afford them.) Acts 1:18.
They worked in the nursery and chil-
dren's church during PSBC's services,
allowing their members to attend servic-
es. Tim Murphy played the piano and
led music for their worship services on
Sunday morning and Tuesday night.
Linda Gressman, Sherry Murphy, Roy
Harper, Cheryl Raulerson, Daniel
Fachlko and Linda Reddish were in this
mission group also.
First Baptist Church, Fernandina
Beach, is pleased to once again offer
Upward basketball and cheerleading.
Upward is a fun, reliable, passionate and
encouraging sports experience for boys
and girls in kindergarten through sixth
grade. Upward provides first-class,
organized and detailed sports program-
ming. Unique aspects of Upward include
an evaluation system that promotes
equal and competitive teams as well as a
substitution system, which allows for

equal playing time for all participants.
Through Upward, children are exposed
to quality coaching and sport develop-
ment. Upward emphasizes character
and integrity instead of a win-at-all-costs
mentality associated with today's sports
The Upward experience has spread
across the country and around the
world. It all began in 1986 through the
obedience of a recreation minister
named Caz McCaslin at a church in
Spartanburg, S.C. It was God who
founded this ministry and has been
faithful to see it to fruition. Emphasis
was placed on Christ likeness and good
sportsmanship, not championships.
Changed hearts and lives were seen in
both those who played basketball and
those who administered the league.
Practice began Sept. 22.
From the desk of Senior Pastor
Michael Bowen of Blackrock Baptist
Church, Yulee, where he writes from
The Beacon: "But if we walk in the light,
as He is in the light, we have fellowship
one with another, and the blood of Jesus
Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.
(1 John 1:7).
"Greetings in the name of Christ.
Summer is over and the kids are now
back in school. It has been at great sum-
mer at Blackrock Baptist Church and
the crowds have been amazing in spite
of all the vacations. Thank you for sup-
porting the church with your presence
and your giving throughout the summer
months. A lot of churches take a big hit
when summertime comes around, but
the people of Blackrock have been
found faithful.
"I also want to say thank you to all
leaders and workers who planned
events for our children and youth
throughout the summer. Monday and
Tuesday were very busy, but the par-
ents truly appreciate all of your hard
work and dedication.
"Now, it's time to start of the new
church year in revival. Don't forget
about our revival services beginning
Oct. 4. Our guest speaker for the week
will be Dr. Randall Jones, who was the
pastor of Langston Baptist Church in
Myrtle Beach, S.C. He was also a past
president of the South Carolina Baptist
Convention and is now a retired pastor,
preaching revivals in various places.
"He is truly a man of God and has a
heart for the church. Come out and sup-
port these services and allow God into
your heart. We love you and keep us in
your prayers."
In preparation for October revival,
we are going to have Cottage Prayer
meetings every Monday in September
at 7 p.m. Everyone is invited to come
together and pray for God to move in a
mighty way on Sept. 28 at the home of
Mitch and Lisa Merritt.
The time is flying by and we are
already approaching a new church year.
Look for ways that God can use you. If
you have a song in your heart, we can
use you in the choir. If you play a musi-
cal instrument, we have a place for you.
God has blessed us with such a wonder-
ful gift. Please come and join us and let
your light shine for Jesus. Bro. Matt
Gingery, music minister.
The senior adults of First Baptist
Church, Fernandina Beach, are working

FRIDAY, September 25, 2009/News-Leader


Broken, stepped on, crushed - and useful for God

F or her, it had to be a
fearful place. Women
weren't allowed. If it
hadn't been for the
encouragement of her moth-
er-in-law, and a few small indi-
cators that the man in charge
liked her, she would have
stayed within the boundaries
society had set.
As she secretly approach-
ed the threshing floor, the
sights and sounds were all
she had imagined. The noise
of crushing barely and the joy
of the harvesters filled the air.
And to think, that night, her
whole future was in the bal-
Of all the books of the
Bible, the little book of Ruth is

one of my
The idea that
- 'who has lost
can suddenly
become so
blessed is
PULPIT encouraging.
NOTES I receive
fresh hope
every time I
Pastor read it.
Rob Goyette I particu-
larly like the
account of Ruth's visit to the
threshing floor of Boaz. To
me, it provides the perfect
backdrop for how God proces-

ses our lives. Let me explain.
In the ancient world, the
manual crushing and process-
ing of wheat and barley was a
central part of life. If you want-
ed to make bread, you first
had to crush the grain and
separate it from its outer
husk. The threshing floor was
where it all happened. By
beating the grain with a spe-
cial instrument or by tram-
pling it under foot, the crack-
ing of the outer shell was
essential. Once the shell was
broken, all that was left was to
separate it from the grain. The
process was simple. By throw-
ing everything up into the air
over and over again, and
allowing the afternoon breeze,

or special fans, to drive away
the lighter shell, the heavier
grain would fall back to the
floor. After repeating the
process several times, the
only thing left was the part
that was usable. It really is a
perfect picture of our lives.
Personally, I've been
through the process several
times and feel confident I'll go
through it again. Like the
wheat, cut down, bound up,
thrown on the floor and
crushed, life has its moments.
Yet, somehow, it seems a nec-
essary part of our perfection.
King David said it like this:
"Before I was afflicted I went
astray: but now have I kept
your word." And again, "It is

good for me that I have been
afflicted: that I might learn
your statutes." (Psalm 119:67,
I know that when you're in
the middle of it, it's awfully
hard to appreciate the process
but, if we submit ourselves to
the Lord, the end product is
always worth it.
So, if you're reading this
article and feel stepped on,
crushed and like your whole
life is up in the air, take heart.
It could be that God is using
your situation to separate for
you the things you need and
the things you don't. Who
knows, what seems like your
worst season could actually
become your best. Like with

the life of Ruth, a poor, broken
widow, when she realized that
the wealthy man who owned
the threshing floor was in love
with her and would one day
become her husband, every-
thing changed.
I leave you with an encour-
aging verse found in Psalms
'The Lord is near unto
them that are of a broken

Nassau County schools first in the

country with 'StormReady status

For the News-Leader

NOAA's National Weather Service in
Jacksonville recognizes the Nassau County
School District as the first StormReady
Supporter School District in the country.
The district is composed of 15 public
schools, and each school has achieved
StormReady Supporter status.
The StormReady Supporter program
is a nationwide program that acknowl-
edges agencies, businesses and schools for
establishing severe weather safety plans
and that actively promote severe weather
safety and awareness.
"StormReady Supporters are an impor-
tant part of our mission of saving lives and
property," said Stephen Letro, Meteorolo-
gist-in-Charge of the NWS in Jacksonville.
"When a severe weather watch or warning
is issued, the public needs to understand
what actions to take."
Angela Enyedi, the assistant warning
coordination meteorologist at the NWS in

Jacksonville and program developer for
the local StormReady Supporter for
Schools, formally recognized the Nassau
County School District for completing the
StormReady program during the school
board meeting at Hilliard Elementary
School Thursday night.
"The Nassau County School District
was very fortunate to have a partnership
with our local National Weather Service
office," said Sharyl W. Wood, executive
director of administrative services for the
Nassau County School Board. "Through
the outreach and encouragement of the
NWS office, the Nassau County Schools
were invited to participate in the
StormReady Supporter for Schools pro-
gram, which has greatly increased our
awareness, knowledge and preparedness
for severe weather. As a result, we have
reinforced and increased our ability to pro-
tect students, school staff and others
attending school events."

Chief Executive Officer Jim Adams reads to Donna
Graves' kindergarten class at Callahan Elementary
School Sept. 15 as part of his agency's partnership
with the Sheriff's Reading Club.

when Nassau County Sheriff

more "Reading Deputies" into
the Sheriff's Reading Club.

North Florida, Seagraves,
Pound Puppy inventor Mike

Sept. 15 at Callahan and Hilliard

Two kindergarten classes
each were chosen by the
schools' principals to receive
the backpacks filled with work-
books, a drinking cup and a
Douglas the Duck book about
safety written and illustrated by
local authors Brad and
Stephanie Strawberry of Yulee.
And then there's the Pound
Puppy in each, which Pound

explains is their "reading

a name and read a story every
night before they go to bed.

School by the NWS in Jacksonville, each
of Nassau County's public schools suc-
cessfully completed a set of guidelines,
which were created based on a collabora-
tive effort between all six Florida NWS
offices, the Florida Department of
Emergency Management and the Florida
Department of Education. The guidelines
include severe weather safety training for
administrators and other critical decision
makers at the schools.
The program participants learned how
to proactively address their school's weath-
er threat potential via interrogating
Doppler radar imagery, scanning the sky
and receiving and correctly interpreting
National Weather Service watch and warn-
ing products. Each school also customized
a severe weather emergency response
plan and defined severe weather shelter
areas throughout the school campus.

The program, which began
in January 2008, has given away
more than 1,300 backpacks for
4- and 5-year-olds in Nassau
County. Any parent can go to
any branch library and get the

star sticker on each child who
receives a backpack and he
makes each class raise their
right hand to take their oath.
Adams asked the last class
they visited if they knew who
the sheriff was and Miles Edgy
piped up and said his mother
was. Seagraves told the young-
ster that perhaps it was true
that his mother was the sheriff
at his house.
Miles is not a stranger to
Seagraves. His mother works
at the sheriff's office.
Adams said he always enjoys
giving the backpacks away and
it's a way to keep families
together and reading. "Encour-
aging family activities and early
literacy helps preserve families
and that's what Family Support
Services is all about."

Student wins ballroom gold

On Sept. 12 Fernandina
Beach Middle School sev-
enth-grader Amanda
Herrera Hernandez became
the 2009 United States
Latin/Rhythm champion by
placing first and winning the
pre-teen title along with her
professional dance instruc-
tor Felix Solis at a competi-
tion in Orlando.
Solis is director of the
Ballroom Youth Academy, a
local non-profit program that
gives free ballroom dance
classes to students in grades
one through 12 from
Fernandina, Yulee and
Hernandez is an "A" stu-
dent at FBMS who started
with the academy about two
years ago, attending the free
classes held every Thursday
from 3:30-4:30 p.m. at the
Atlantic Avenue Recreation
The non-profit program
was inspired by the movie,
'Take the Lead," which stars
Antonio Banderas as a pro-
fessional ballroom dance
teacher who goes into inner
city New York schools to
teach ballroom dancing - an
excellent after-school activi-
Only a few students, such
as Hernandez, who show

good grades, desire and par-
ticipation in the classes may
move onto a scholarship pro-
gram, which offers private
instruction as well as the
opportunity to perform and
compete in dance events.
Her mom and dad, little
brother and grandmother,
who flew in from Spain just
to see her dance, were pres-
ent. There were tears of joy
when Hernandez was
announced the winner.
Local students Miguel
Kronbach, Channing Perrett
and Gavin Loring also made
the trip to Orlando, said
Solis. "This is just like the
U.S. Open in tennis or golf,
but in ballroom dancing."
The Ballroom Youth
Academy is supported
through fundraisers such as
the "Dancing with the Stars"
event held at Amelia Island
Plantation, as well as an
annual golf tournament.
Coming up Saturday is the
second annual Miss Amelia
Island Classic Pageant,
where young girls from
babies to high school may
enter for the title Miss
Amelia Island, as well as a
mother/daughter contest.

"We really try to listen to the customer to help meet their jewelry
needs," says Amelia's Fine Jewelry owner, Gigi Grubner
Precious Gems and treasures at
Amelia's Fine Jewelry
Gigi Grubner has been involved in the jewelry industry since
1991, working in her family's jewelry store in upstate New York.
Armed with a college degree in Fine Arts with courses in business
management, marketing and advertising, Grubner began Amelia's
Fine Jewelry in 2007 with "$50 and a dream."
A full service jeweler, Grubner and employees Caroline Sosnoski
and Gianinna Cooper offer custom designed jewelry, redesign of
existing pieces, and repairs and remounts. They also buy gold and
do selective consignment jewelry.
"We carry new and estate jewelry," said Grubner. "Estate jew-
elry pieces have fascinating histories."
Amelia's Fine Jewelry also carries pieces by renowned jewel-
ry artists such as Simon G and Denny Wong, as well as pieces hand-
crafted by local and regional artists.
A new offering for coin collectors is America's first silver dol-
lar used and accepted as legal tender in the American colonies.
Treasure hunters might be interested in authentic sunken treas-
ure from the 110-foot Spanish galleon, the Nuestra Sefiora De
Atocha, a Mel Fisher find which sank off the Florida Keys in 1622.
Another oceanic treasure Grubner stocks is jewelry made with
the rare and beautiful Larimar stone. This one source gemstone
from the Dominican Republic re-min-
eralizes from volcanic rock to a
unique aqua blue color.
The star of the
show is a specially
commissioned charm in
the shape of Amelia
Island, with a diamond
denoting the historic district.
Grubner runs her shop in a
relaxed atmosphere, free of high
pressure tactics. With 19 years in the
jewelry industry, she finds her career
rewarding and wants to continue to offer
unique, fine quality jewelry and exceptional
customer service.

At EcoWater, we consider the total impact of our
products. We design them to conserve energy and
reduce waste. In addition to softening water, an
EcoWater conditioner saves in many ways:
Saves Money, Energy and Water
* Reduces scale build-up in pipes, allowing water-using appliances
such as water heaters, dishwashers and washing machines, to
run more efficiently and last longer.
* Regenerates on demand, not on a timer, using less salt and water
while saving energy and money.

Reduces Environmental Impact
* Soft water requires less shampoo and soap - reducing waste.
* Soap scum is virtually eliminated. Surfaces are
cleaned with fewer potentially harmful cleaning
agents that eventually end up down the drain.
* Exclusive HydroLink@ Technology monitors
in-home water use, creating awareness of
consumption and unnecessary use.

Couple's island

dream: to turn

novel into film

Emmy Award-winning producer Rick
Traum has just relocated to Amelia Island.
Traum fell in love with the area when
he first visited in 2005 during the Amelia
Island Book Festival. There he met author
Art Ayris. A few months later, both Traum
and his wife, Dr. Nadine Vaughan, a psy-
chologist-novelist-screenwriter, helped
Ayris produce the award-winning movie
"The Touch." The film was subsequently
shown at the Amelia Island Film Festival.
Traum and his wife hope to gather the
necessary financing to make her novel,
Native Land: Lost In The Mystery of Time,
into a movie. Already a screenplay, they
plan to film a good portion of the movie
here on Amelia Island.
Vaughan first fell in love with the area
as a "wee child," noting in a press release
that it was during her earliest years that
she and her extended family would travel
here from Callahan to enjoy the surf and
each other.
Vaughan's novel is rich in early Florida
